The officers  cannot find words to thank Mr and  Mrs Nixon for their hospitality,  and kindness.  At' low water, one may walk under the vebsei's bilges as far as the  aftersmoke  stacks.      Many plates  have  been torn off  by the shock,  but otherwise she is resting well, on_  a shelving rock.    Astern, however,  is,a bank of mud, which may prove  troublesome when launching ia attempted.    Admiral Bickford arrived on  the scene at about 10 p.m. .  after the accident, having chartered ,  the "Joan"   for the purpose.     He,  bn-ught  up   wilh    hint,, the  chief ,'  engineer and c .ief cm pen tor of the  Giafton, and after an examination,  the  party  returned   to ^E^quimaH.  H.M.S. Egeria arrived  at 3.45 Friday and thp' Gr..fton on   Satuidaj-,  the latter vessel  being just out of  diy dock.  At the time of the mishap both  Capiam Baker and .tne N������v ga  ting officer were on the bridgo,(and  there seems to he no doubt that������the  spar buoy at Village Point was  mistaken for the Cage buoy, two  miles turther down the Sound. A  gull, peiched on the top of thespar,  is said to have given the resemblance in theiog, to the cage buoy.  These two buoys, being on opposite  sides of the channel, it is obvious  that if one were taken for the other,  a vessel's course would be laid to  put her ashore. The error in distance, however, is rathe? unaccountable.  .   f    ���������                         , ...  !       __ O��������� ��������� '  Every peison-.vvhp wit-hea to buy  good goods cheap, slibuld  visit the ���������  Big  Store.

Sound can be obtained without air if  some elastic medium be interposed between the ear-and the body that,emits  .he sound, but sound cannot be transmitted through a perfect vacuum.

Colladon. another investigator, heard the sound of a bell struck  under water in the lake of Geneva at a  ���������distance of nine miles.  It is well known "that' wood trans-  'tnits sound i������i a remarkable manner. A  "person at one" end of a wooden' beam  will .hear a phi, scratch made at the  other end, though'the person making it  a_ay hear no sound at all.

' A  Book  Hc'.Dian't  Have.  , At the very beginning of his editorial  -career at friend visited Henry Labou-  ��������� - ..here and, seeing a quantity of books  around which had been sent in for. review*,' offered to bet the editor of I.on-  ���������don Truth that there was one book he  'had not got in the office. Labouchere  inquired the, name of the book, and his,  "friend promptly answered, "A Bible."  "With a laugh Labouchere offered to bet  ������10 that he had even that book. Turning the conversation in another direction; he furtively sent a note out into  the clerk's office-telling tho boy to. go  downstairs and ask the booksellers underneath for the loan of a Bible. * Pres-  * cntly he returned to the subject of tho  bet and, calling his assistant in, asked  him. whether .he had a Bible in the office. The clerk produced ..the book,  wliich Labouchere handed over to his  friend, giving himself away, however,  .- as he did so by saying sotto voce to the  clerk,- "I hope to goodness you didn't  .forget to cut the leaves!"  ,     A Polite  Denial.  "Everybody  knows  the  man  who  is  ���������careful never to say "No" abruptly in  answer to a question.    "No" is a hard  word, but one may sometimes be made  " ridiculous by a "reluctance to  utter it.  - -says an exchange.   *  . A certain man who had this habit  ;was once met by two ladies. w,ho .'had  been "discussing tlie peculiarity, and one  ��������� of them said that she was positive sho  , -could make him say "Oh.  no!" flatly.  So she addressed him thus: -  . "Let me see,  Mr. Smith; you are a  - widower, are you not?"'  "As much  a  widower,., madam,"  he  answered, with a polite inclination of  Lis head, "as it is possible for a man to  i)e who has never married."'  The lady had to own herself beaten.  Sex  Characteristics.  "Have you ever noticed in a fashionable crowd how much like men the  "women are and how much like women  the men? It is not that the men are  really effeminate or the women really  masculine, as a keen observer once put  it, but there is, nevertheless, a curious  approximation in type. It may be to  some extent a matter of dress. Women  -affect the mannish in their costume,  ���������men in summer seek more color. But it  is not dress alone. The woman's face  ���������seems stronger and the man's less sensual- than it would have been even a  ���������century ago. The figure, too, has changed. The man is less gross, the woman,  ���������more.-athletic,, and both are taller.���������  London Tatler.  A Wonderful Tributo to tho Power of Dr.  Willi*ins1 Pink Pills to Cure  .

Here  is  a   bit   oi  strong' proof  'that' Dr."   Williaui.s'* Pink"  Pills' 'tiring  health  and strength - after years     of  suffering.    Mr.  Louis -linen- is  a -well  known   resident   of   St.   Didace,   Que.,  and tells-of his years  of suffering as  follows :    -���������'Eleven   years .ago, -while  working   in the hush,   I  strained  myself and brought on terrible pains  in  my    stomach, and back,    where    the  trouble   seemed to locate.'   J  had".frequent fits  of vomiting-,'! which caused  much    distress.       Sometimes  1   could  work,   and' then again   for months "at  a time ]   would   be wholly unable  to  do  anything;, but even at .the time I  could  work  I  was always'   suffering.  At . different times   1 was treated by  three- doctors,  but they were   unable  to  help  me.      Then   t wont to Montreal and'put mysclf'under the' care*of  a doctor there. _   His medicine relieved  mc   while I   was   inactive,   but  as  soon as I attempted.work or exertion  of     any     kind -. the  pains     returned  worse  than  before.   .All   'this  time  T  was growing'weaker and less able to'  resist    tho ..inroads  of   .'the trouble.  Then Dr.    Williams'    Pink   Pills were  brought to  my  notice.,- and    1  began*  to use them.      From .that..time 1 began to  regain niy  health and,-, by the  time 1 had used thu teen boxes 1 was  .once .more  a  well    strong   man.    The  proof .of  this    is.    that \L  can  do   as  hard  a  day's , work    as  anyone- and  'never have the slightest symptoms of  the   old    trouble.    1   am' only    sorry  that  I  di-d  'not   .know  of    the- pills  sooner���������they  would  have   saved     me  much 'suffering- t.nd hionev as 'well."  . .With such proof* as* this",   that even  apparently     hopeless     cases     can   bo  cured,      there    can be  no   reasonably  doubt, niat' Dr. .Williams'   Pink Tills  will restore health in all cases where  given,-a  fair  trial.

As a city Hamilton is  now fifty-six years of age, which- is  no slight achievement in this land.of  newness. But long before'-.the .possibility of a metropolitan career dawn--  ed upon Hamilton the site was-given  an historic interest. Here it was  that the intrepid La Salle, the explorer of the Mississippi, stood 234  years ago. La Salle and thc small  band of ' Frenchmen, -who set out  from Montreal in July, 1069. when  Charles II. was still cniovins. his  riotous reign. wore thc first whito  men to set foot on tlie spot where  Hamilton now stands. There is a  tradition that La'Salle landed near  the site now occupied by the Grand  Trunk station, and that his camn.  at first located near by, was shortlv  afterwards moved across the bav to  Oaklands. Of this. & however, there  are no records,,so that the tradition  remains onlv a tradition. La Salle  m-ust have been satisfied' with the result of -his venture, for he returned  forthwith to- the Kast. For' a .century'thereafter no' white ,man saw  Burlington Bay, or set foot on its  shores. . ,,  Robert Land,'FJrut Settler.  Among the U. E. Loyalists who  found conditions no 'longer tolerable  when the thirteen cdlonies ' revolted  was Robert Land, a farmer, living in  the Delaware Valley.

"��������� Tfow he  tramped ihis weary.'wav to British  soil and sought to'-forget his sorrows  and wrongs .-by carving oiit 'a'-homo  for himself in the dense, forest has  been many times told.

Bv  the1 construction of -the Desjardins  Canal, Dundas was established, and  enjoyed a promising shipping business, which was subsequcntlv diverted from it by tho Western Railway.  "When the site- of Hamilton, was surveyed in 1791 there were some thirty-one families, including the fiist  settler. Nearly half a,century later,  1816, the'city was incorporated with  a population of less than 'seven thou-,  sand.- :  <How It,has grown and ricv. <-. or>r>d  since then is ���������< within the recollection  of many now.living.

But  the great fertility of the district, th.i  numerous manufacturing enterprises,  electrical power and. radial railways,  have amply, ensured tlie prosperitv, of  Hamilton. It is now a very beaiiti-.  ful, asv well as a ,busy. city, lacking  in none of th������ improvements-, that  .make city lifo attractive, , and enjoying the confidence of all who are  in any way interested in its future.

"Tho area of coal land  extends for' a distance of forty-five  miles ,'from Sydney to Louisburg.  Five collieries are now working, rais-  ing'11,000 tons of coal a day. ��������� The  general sales agent, Mr. Dick, told  me they could easily sell four times  the quantity of.coal they are- now  raising. They cannot keep up with  their order--. The coal area owned  by the company is so extensive ..hat  other shafts and��������� collieries can be put  in to meet any future demand. The  amount of coal is conceded * by expert:? to be so enormous that in 100  years, even if the output is ten  times what it is now, the supply will  not be exhausted. Excellent, up-to-  date machinery is in use, and the  way they handle the product is perfect, while the'r shipping facilities  are most modern."  Br. Riordan said that the miners  are principally I\o\a Scotians, born  in the country. There is no foreign  element there. Br. Kendall, who represents Sydney in the Dominion  Parliament", told him that many . of  the miners ".'have savings bank 7. accounts r from $2,000 to $5,000 each.

While  the  explorers   arc   trying  to  reach   the poles and to'search    into  the far corners of the earth, there remains    a , wilderness   practically untouched near,home,  in the heart   of  Labrador.'/ This'country  lies;- along  the    George-   River��������� an    unmapped  stream rising near the sources.of the  ���������Hamilton River,     and .flowing north  into Angora Bay.   '    Only one. white  man, John McLean, of the Hudson's  Bay  Company,  has  ever .been there.  He,-, ascended  the   George /.about ... 60.  years   ago.      -Ho  said-the   ascent' of  ���������the'     Gorge"' River   ' was- tlie hardest ,  task   of'his   life,   and   describes" the,  "Indian's as living in absolutely prim-.  itive' -..conditions.-      Among      other  thirigs-'* they 'kill   their    old people.-'  McLean tried to establish posts, but  these were abandoned.  Since McLean's journey many peor  pie have tried'to" reach this untouched country, but none have succeeded.

Transferring it gracefully to her hand, she restores it to thc  bridegroom, thus showing that she can  perform her domestic duties well, with  hand, and foot at1 his service.

��� They both worked in the clouds, she
on the top floor of a 'great factory,
building-, he ,amid the iron framework
of a huge skyscraper.
lie did not know of her existence,
bur she felt quite sure that she should
recognize him if ever they met in 'the
street, -whose noisy, busy life swept on
far below their feet. She could always
single him out among the mechanics
in midair. No other
workman trod the'iron beams with
such assured poise or squared his shoulders just as he did to the day's work.
He did everything with an air of abso-
��� lute confidence which thrilled and mas-
��� tered her.
, Ho was too far away- for her to scrutinize his features, but she was quite
sure that he had honest, clear blue eyes
and brown curly hair, and his eyes
could twinkle merrily.*? This she knew
by the jovial1 way in which he signaled
tis fellow' workmen.
Not that she had much time to study
his .mannerisms, for Ellen Mulvihill.
' was a designer in the factory of, Johnson & Co., makers of ladies' shirt waists,
and neckwear, and a very busy woman: Perhaps it was well-for tlie"firin, .���
however,    that    whiles  she t designed
��� stocks and fancy boas she wove in the
thread of her romance", for this strangely one sided lovo affaiiysecmed to beautify   the   whole  world   for    her,   and
'while her heart sang her fingers worked deftly, and the, firm reaped the
If she had not been so absorbed just
at this juncture she might have noticed
that she was- rising in the favor of her
employers, but she was quite amazed
one day when they voluntarily raised
her salary. Quito naturally, they did
>/not 'offer- tho explanation that they
feared their competitors and'gave thc
'increase as aT precautionary measure.
, Elieri accepted' it as a part of the rose
color which had; -suddenly enveloped
her entire lifo scheme. The extra salary had come just in time, she-argued,
for Trixie, the idol of her heart, or,
rather, the one person who divided
heart space1 with the hero of "her midair dreams, had been wanting to go to
dancing, school these two months���to a,-
wdndcrful hall whero children all iii
white frocks and velvet Fauntleroy
suils tripped to fairy music.'
Ellen lived with ho'r married brother,."
and knowing ones would say that she
paid a high price for the privilege.
Mulvihill's wife was something of a
shrew, while Ellen'was of more gentle
'birth and breeding. Tho sister-in-law
loved neighborhood gossip and was not
above a quarrel with the other dwellers
in the fiat house. Ellen'enjoyed her
becks, the hall bedroom, furnished and
decorated with thc dainty simplicity
which marked her designs'at the facto it, and the championship of Trixie.
The girls at the factory were kind to
her, too, and then tbei'e was the quiet,
shadowy church midway 'twixt homo
and work where she stopped each day
to say innumerable "all hails" to.the
Blessed Mother, who must have interceded to secure for her so much happiness.
It was about a month after the memorable advance in salary that an ominous silence fell upon the Mulvihill
supper table. Ellen knew instinctively,
that some domestic problem was com'
Ing up for discussion.
At last John Mulvihill pushed bach
his empty teacup and lighted his pipe.
"Ellen, the Shamrock association arc
after givin' their annual ball a weeli
this Tuesday night, an' the wife an'
mesilf think you'd best be goin' along"-
Ellon raised startled eyes to hei
brother's face.
"I'm  no dancer, as you well  know
John, an' crowds like that give me th<
headache.   I'd rather stop at home witl
John Mulvihill's face darkened.
"You're always stoppin' at home witt
the child, an' it'is time you went oul'
an' met the boys an' had steady com
��� pany. You're the first Mulvihill girl
.-that over passed' twenty-fivs withou-
bavin* her offers to marry. You'll nov
or marry, if you stay cooped up hen
night after night an' not even visitin
our friends of a Sunday afternoon."
Going to the Shamrock association's
ball in search of a husband! Ellen's
face flamed, then turned pale. But
then, they did not know about him
The very thought seemed like treasor
to the strong, erect figure which' neve*
passed out of his mental vision
"It's well enough off I am, John
without a husband, an' I see no reasor
why you an' Mary should want to marry me off. I'm thinkin' Trixie would
miss her old auntie sorely.!' And she
drew the child close as if to ward ofi
with her innocent childhood some im
pending disaster.
Mrs. Mulvihill blazed forth on the in
"Yes, an' that's what the neighbors
are all sayin'���that I use you as nurse-
girl for the child an' dance an' go tc
the  theater with   John   an'   mv   child
"I thought they would be blue, an'
they are brown���no, hazel."
So of course it'came out. She didn't
mean he should know, all. and he didn't

A month later Ellen dropped into the
quiet, shadowy church on her way to
work. There were so many "all hails"
to say this morning, and the church
was quite empty, so with clasped hands
and eyes full of happy tears she looked
into the benign face of the Woman of
Many Sorrows and murmured:
"Blessed Mother, do I deserve so much
happiness? Am I good enough for
him? He Is comin' every Wednesday
an' Sunday night to see me. an' by
an' by it will be every night. He said
so.   Every day an' every night we will
be together so Ion*.
me to
as we live
who have suffered much, teach
be strong an' brave for him."
And all that day a man working far
above the din of the mighty city looked
across the gap to tlie great factory
building where he knew she bent over
her work. His heart sang 'within him.
and his blows fell full, and clear, for a
wonderful light and happiness had
come into his life.
Mnsic  Katli  Cliarmn. t
Ignaz Ploy el. a musician held in high
repute in his day and a Viennese by
birth, was appointed kapellmeister at
Strassburg in 1783. During* the troubled times of the French revolution he
lost his post, and his life was in grave
He escaped death and satisfied his accusers that he was not an aristocrat by
writing music to some most revolutionary stanzas, which wero placed before
him for the purpose, while beside stood
two gendarmes with fixed bayonets.
Another instance, proving that "music hath charms to soothe the savage
breast," is that of Alessandro Stradel-
la, an Italian composer of the seventeenth century, who carried off a lady-
named Ortensia from the home of a nobleman of high rank.    Two assassins
would suffer if it wasn't for you.   They
talk like you was a sort of Cinderella,
an' it's tired I am of their long tongues.
Did I ever ask you to spend money on
Trixie when you  needed  it - for your
own clothes?,   Did I ever ask you to
stay home with the child?   It's an ungrateful  lot, that's what you are. to
bring me in disrepute "with me neighbors just because you're that uppish
our friends ain't good enoughfor you!"
, And that was how Ellen happened
to go to the ball of the Shamrock association.     She  gave,  her    sister-in-law
carte blanche in,the matter of a new
< drffis. nnd that nersonssre. restored ta
good humor,  reveled In the purchase
and making of a real white satin frock.
'   But the day of the ball Ellen could -
hardly keep her mind on her work. Her
glance would wander toward the skyscraper where he was working.    She
felt' that he was whistling, his move-
ii \, "C3
ments were so brisk. And John was
trying, with the best intentions, to
marry her off - solely to maintain the
honor of the Mulvihill family. She"
had thought of a day when she should
marry, when the skyscraper was done
perhaps and he become a contractor.
She would not wear those nasty high
stock's which she designed for other
women, out aresscs turned in at the
neck and edged with soft lace, and he
would tell her that she had the throat
of a lily. Young husbands in novels
always said that. ���
At night John led her. the length of
the"ball with pride stamped on his face
and his walk. Men were introduced to
her and asked her to dance,-but she became possessed of a strange terror and
slipped' back among the -wallflower's.
Mrs. Mulvihill, watched' her with rising
anger. ^What was the use of worrying
over a real satin dress for a stupid girl
like Ellen?    i- '"      ' ' .  '
" -Ellen was -thinking of Trixie and
.how. late they would reach home and
' how loud the music w;as when she
..heard a hearty,voice at her elbow:   \.
"Sure, I'd be glad to meet the sister
of John Mulvihill,.an' it's odd I never
knew you had one." y      "t
She swung around, and suddenly the
lights in the room leaped into bewildering flames, 'the -���'dancers mingled
strangely as in a broken kaleidoscope.
In the confusion onc fact stood forth
clearly. There was just, one man in
the world who could ���rtand like,that,
one man who had such a pair of shoulders, and he was the man who wrought
every day in' the skeleton of the skyscraper. v
She heard ,her brother say it was
Dennis Gallagher, president,. of the
1 Shamrock ' ' association.* - That\>was
quite real to'her. y Of course he would
he the president.'*\ Then John drifted
away, and Gallagher sat beside her.
It was quite awhile before she glanced
up into his,face. She was trying to
realize olhe beautiful truth���that they
wore, no longer parted in midair, but
sitting_side by side in_a noisy, heated-
ballroom. She was glad it was noisy;
otherwise ho might hear her heart
When she looked into his eyes she
started, and the color came and'weut
prettily in her cheeks. Dennis Gallagher smiled. He had seen girls look like
this before. Cut-Ellen was utterly ingenuous in spite of her twenty-five
birthdays. He did not speak, and finally she said almost breathlessly:
who were hired to kill him folioweo

w&er'e an oratorio of his was being performed, they were so moved by the music that they warned Stradella of hit.

Modern Atliletle  Training:.    .     ,
The trainer of a generation, ago
would simply have stood aghast at the
sweets and other savory food stuffs
eaten by, your modern rowing or=run-
ning collegians. Yet it may be doubled'
if the physique either of the individual
athlete or of the nation ever stood at
a higher general standard of "fitness."
One pertinent fact with regard to training is that both past tradition and present'practice condemn',with emphatic-
voice the use of tobacco and alcohol
and other indulgences to which healthy
man���wonderful animal that he is���is
unhappily prone. So long as the main
principles of temperance, plain living
aud abundant exercise are carefully applied'to,, the man in training so'long
will the results be likely to'succeed.
Every human being living'under reasonably good conditions of environment ought to be, like the, healthy
schoolboy, always in a state of "train-

Dead white Irish point lace is singularly heavy and hot in appearance, and
the eye turns in pleasant relief to some

She'stopped before the long* ,mirror

A' feeling,-of dread, like the presentiment, of coining misfortune,'��� came
over her. The room looked -.strange

was. -
About half past.nine there was"-"a
knock at Lucie's door: she was still
sitting in the same spot. '"Hortense,'
sho thought," and turned her head.
It was J��rau Xcin.
"Yes, yes; you sit here, and my
mistress lies over, there, and my
beautiful trout stands untouched in
the green room, and not a morsel of
the venison i.s  eaten."
"How is Fran Weber?" asked
, "She lies perfectly still, and does
not even turn her head. The master
went to her once, but got as little
of an answer as T. There are some
queer things going- on in this house,
