Benefit Entertainments
A  large   audience ' gathered   at
Cumberland Hall on Thursday last
in anticipation of. enjoying a treat
on   the occasion of the  entertain-
ment for, the benefit of the Hospital,'
nor were they disappointed.    From
the opening to the' closing of ;the
programme all received enthusiasm .
tic applause.    The ladies who had
the  affair- in  charge  deserve   the
greatest.credit for the success of the ,   ������
event,5) if unremitting  labor is  an
essential ,to a successful outcome.
The stage was most,artistically,decorated.   The orchestra: under Prof.
Schaffner's leadership, contributed
in a highly satisfactory manner to ��<
the evening--pleasure.    Since,Prof, y

The death occurred, on Wednesday last .of Mrs Margaret McDonald, mother of Mr C. McDonald
ahd Miss B. McDonald of Leiser's
staff." The, deceased lady had been
a patient sufferer for months from
that dread disease consumption,
and- finally succumbed early on
Wednesday morning, surrounded at
the last by her sorrowing children.
Mr McDonald died some years ago
at Nanaimo. The funeral took
pb.ee on Friday afternoon from the
family residence to the cemetery at

unremitting in his attention to the
deceased through her long illness.
The family have the sympathy of
the community in their bereavement.".'
Mr and Misses McDonald desire

Sy  MA J OB    ARTHUR   GRIFFITHS.  Copywright by R.' F. Fenno & Co.  '"They  aro  so  struuge that  no  one  would believe bixu on oath  unless he  could   back   them   up   by   the  papers  themselves.    I don't mind telling you  'that much."  "Thou 1 guess you must have them,  <only I don't see a way short of lifting  ,    'theuj  from  the  man's' stateroom, and  , 'thai sort of thing has an ugly name���������if  7t's found out."  "It would be theft���������for you. not me.  "They are mine or my employer's, and I  tell j'ou I should not" hesitate to take  them openly or secretly, to fight over  them if I could get anywhere within  ���������'    reach."  "Reckon, captain, you'll be'likely to  ,  qualify, too,   for  state's prison,"  said  Mr. Rossitor. laughing.  I had been promised news "of Frida  by my. new friend Kossitcr.    But day,  followed day, aud yet he had uothing  'to tell me.    It was'always the same  story: "Missy's still under tlie weather,  ,    like the rest of the women- folk!    Not  ���������able   to  leave   her  stateroom.     Stewardess thinks she'll be laid by till we  ���������make Sandy  Hook.    But I'll let you"  know soon as I hear."  yAt last, on, the fourth day at sea, a  v superb day, fresh and sunny, my dear  girl made her appearance on deck, and,'  '���������as I was ever on the watch. I saw her  from  w^  distant second class station  long before Rossiter came with his re-  -port.    Indeed  he was too busy, good  soul, in seeing to her wants and dancing attendance upon her to think very  much of me.    When he did appear, it'  0 was only to.get Roy.   "Missy was mad  ' to see the dog."   There was not a word  ���������about me. dr  , When he returned, it was with rather  - ra scared faco. -.   _  "All the fat is in the Ore! The duch-  ���������ess has read your name on the dpg'3  collar"��������� ���������'    .  "And guesses I am on board?"  "I dou't say that, "not yet anyway,  ���������but they're likely to ferret it out pretty  slick unless you cache dowu below for  the restof the run."  "r shall not hide,'my  I've seen and talked wi  ,   holme, and tliat I'm>going to>do with  ���������or without your help or leave." -7  ��������� \ "Right now?"  "Right now, over- there on the poop  -deck, in the face of them all. I, can  pay for a* first class passage, and I'll do  it1 under another name."  . "So as to call attention to yourself  ���������tmd bring those toughs on top of you  '^agalu���������spoil all your hand." '   '-  "What0can they do to me? And If  they chose to try I'm man enough to  'meet them.   I'm not afraid of anything  1 straight and aboveboard."  "That's just what it wouldn't be. If  you come out now, you will be playing  their game���������will put" them on their  guard anyhow. Don't be wrong headed, captain, and wait, won't, you?"  "How long?    This is tho fourth day  out���������Wednesday.    We shall make port  . by Saturday, at latest, and then what  am I to do?" -  "See here, captain. I'll bring Miss  Fairholme to< you my own self this  very evening about dusk, or you to her.  How's that for high? There's a snug  spot right aft over the steering gear-  just room for two, if they're fond of  _icb other"���������  I did not know whether to be angry  -with him or not. but I began .to see the  force of his argument, and I agreed  ���������eventually to wait, as he advised.  "Have you told her I am here? If  not, I think���������you will understand���������I  should prefer"���������  "A nod's as good asa wink, captain.  Never a word has she got from me as  to your being on board, aud she shan't.  Whether she has any suspicion of it  ���������or not I cannot say. But 1 don't know  why sho should, and if she did cart  ropes wouldn't hold ber.^ I reckon. But  maybe I am making too free."  I am not ashamed to confess tlmt for  the rest of that day. so long as Frida  kept the deck. I staid in the place  from which I could best see her. and I  borrowed a pair of glasses from Rossiter to spy the better on her beautiful  face. I saw that many emotions agitated it iu turn It was wistful, expectant, sad. downcast, uow flushing  bright with some vague hope, now  tender with soft memories, with  ���������thoughts of me. as I was conceited  enough to believe, and rightly, to judge  by the ftlad welcome she <;:ive me when  I was once more by her side.  Uow the time passed  I cannot say.  We sat there hand in hand gazing out  ncross the  long track of the steamer  as  it sparkled  and  foamed  under the  moonlight and taking no thought of it,  of why we were there, what might be  in  store for us .or what  I  should  do  next    We should have sat on far into  the   night.   I   believe,  perfectly  unconscious  and   unconcerned,  except with  ourselves, had not a tall figure suddenly thrown its shadow over us, and we  were addressed  in a low, nervous female voice:  "Pardon me. but I knew I could not  Jbe mistaken.    It's Cnptata Wood!"  Tbe Duchess of Ti'erra Rngrada!  "1 could not rest till 1 had spoken to  ���������you," she went on  hurriedly.    "Yet 1  ���������elt de trop.    1 did not like to disturb  you, to Interrupt you.    May I ask one  word?   You escaped?"  "As you see. duchess���������uninjured, tbo,  except for the discomfort-and rough  handling. You shall hear the whole  story some day."  "I would gladly, have spared you this  suffering from .the very first. I tried  hard, I did indeed, even that first night  in the opera box, and afterward I  would have warned you. but I dared  not be more' precise. Again, in that  terrible house I was on your side."  "Indeed, duchess," broke in Frida,  "you have made us-your friends.1 We  are grateful, and we will show it yet,  I hope.'-'.'    '    ' ���������   ' ,.  "But why are you- here?" went on'  the other woman Impatiently. "How  did you come? I have never seen you  during the voyage nor have the���������the  others. It is fortunate. They would  certainly try to do you an injury."  "They have done so already���������an In-  Jury that may be irreparable. They,  have robbed me."  "Yes. yes, '.that I know.", she said,  ."but it "will be a- small matter, and'  3'ou would -have your redress. You  could protect yourself against worse,  now you' are free, if you wvre only  careful. 'I' cannot think why you  should risk so much now. , You are  within their reach again."  I  laughed.', "That has never weighed with me, nor do I care for the money.    It is my honor that is at stake,  duehessi r I  must recover certain   papers that you���������your people have stolen  or I shall be eternally disgraced."   :    .  -"Papers?  -Are they yours?    1  have  heard of them.    State papers, belonging to your government and  worth a  fortune to any one who will give'them  j to ours. , You are concerned?" ,  '   ���������"Clospiy.

"There'may be trouble ���������  about them. If your identity is discovered, they will suspect you. and it will  be another reason to attack you. Y*ut  ��������� them by.    Lock them up securely."  "Let    me    have    them."    Interposed  Frida.   "No one would think of mixing  me up with the business, and I'm uot^  afraid of anything they can do to me."  "You shall run no such risk. Frida."  1 protested. "It is entirely my affair.  I came for them. I have got them, and  1 will keep them against all comers.  In the last resort I would throw them  overboard. They are of no actual value except in the wrong hands. We  have copies of them."  It was so settled, and the party broke  up. 1 was the last to leave the steru,  having'given my dear girl a rendezvous in the same place at the same  time the next evening. But as I passed along the now deserted deck, making for the companion ladder that led  to my second class quarters. I was  met by a <]uartermaster in the full  lijibt of an electric lamp, who hailed  un* rou������hIy.  ���������'Hello, my hearty'. Vast heaving  and run alongside.    What brings you  Many, mothers neglect thc health of  their  fully,  think  which  they suffer,  fickleness oi' appetite,,and pale cheeks,  are the natural  resu l of the merging of girlhood  into   womanhood.     This   is   a    serious  mistake       There  is   no   period   in    a  girl's Jil'c 'when she needs more attention,   and  unless    the    little' troubles  aro successfully treated; more serious  ones���������perhaps   decline   and   consumption���������are sure to follow."   What every,  young- girl  needs at this period is  a  tonic  medicine'  that    will    give    her  a rich,    red Idood, strong nerves and'  bring   hoi1   safely   through   a   critical  period in her life.      For this purpose  there   is   no   other     medicine   in   the  world  can  equal  Dr.    Williams'   Pink  Pills.

Mr. Hooper, 57 Grosvcnor street,  Belfast, writes:������������������ "Having from a  cold got a very . stiff and painful  swollen neck, I tried all the usual  remedies without effect. I was; almost giving it up, when a book was  placed on my counter describing St.  Jacobs Oil. I procured a bottle, and  had scarcely rubbed it on my neck  when I felt better. In a short time  the pain left me and the swelling  went down. Finding it so good in  this case, I then tried it on my  ankle, which I had sprained, and  which was frequently very painful. I  soon had the pleasure of finding that  pain also disappear. I must say I  consider St. Jacobs Oil of great  value.  One of J'cst'ce's Heroes.  Mr.'T. P.

There was  a   courage  which- was   more   valuable  than any. other  kind  of courage.

There are many "reasons in support  of this statement. "A great many experiments have been carried 'on dining- a number, 'of' years in various  parts of the world, and these all go  to show that from fall calving- cows  a'bout ,'2~> rpcr cent.- more milk is obtained than from* spring calving. The  'reasons are obvious. During the winder .the cow is free from drouth', heat  and flics, and'' her yield is thus not  affected, when ,right' in 'the Hush . of  thcmilk' as-is too often the rase.  Then the spring grass',coming 'toward'the close' of her'period of lactation serves .as' an inspiration"..to  her wearying, powers, and greatly increase the "wanning 'milk  flow.' '  Milk and butter usually bring^ bct-  tr>r prices in winter than im summer.  There is usually more time _ on' the  farm to attend to the cattle, calves  are more economically raised, , since''  by thc time the spring grass shoots  up they are ready for, it, and are in  good condition the next winter to begin their, duties. Midsummer and  "dog days" are a good time for thc  cow to be''dry: stabling is uncomfortable, and the handling , and care -of  milk is more troublesome than at.  any other time. Tn short four fall-  fresh cows have been found to equal  five which calved in the ^spring, 'in  twelve months' product, and at about  four-fifths -the cost.���������Up-to-Date  Farming.

C. r.lcCluro  are a  great friend *of  "Such   an   infernal   nuisance!"   said  Jack Somerville as he sat in his easy  chair  nursing  a, sprained   ankle   and  scowling at his friend, Dick Callender.  "What did you  let go of  the ladder  for?" -     , - , .  "Sorry,   old   man,"   said   the   other;  "but  it  was  as  much  your  fault as  mine."  "And   I   had  promised   my aunt  to  meet a girl, a cousin of mine, who is  coming to stay with  her.    It's nearly  traintime now.   Look  here!   You  will  haye to go instead of me."  "I?"   cried   Dick,   aghast.    "Why,'I  shouldn't know her if I saw her!"'  "Neither should I," growled the other.   "Haven't seen her for years:  but  she will be wearing a red cape, so my  aunt says, and that ought to be enough  ��������� to identify her���������a tall, dark girl \with  a red cape.   Now, don't stand gaping.  You have no time to lose. .Take her in  . .a cab to my aunt's and tlien come back  here."    ������������������  He pulled out his watch again with  '-an impatient gesture, and Dick,  anx-  . ions to atone for his share in the   accident, hurried away.    -  As  he .lounged  about ^he  platform  waiting for the train to' arrive he remembered that the young lady's name  ��������� had not been mentioned, or, if it had,  he had entirely forgotten it.   "I'll stick  .   to the' red cape," 'he said to himself.  "and I can't go far wrong."  ' ' When the"train at last arrived, Dick  moved slowly along the line of cars.,  keeping a watchful eye on the passengers as they alighted, and his vigilance  ��������� was rewarded  by the sight of a  tall,  dark young lady wearing a scarlet cape  and carrying several parcels.  - ���������, "I beg your pardon,"' Dick began, diffidently'addressing her.    "I "have been  commissioned to meet you. and escort  < you  to  the  house.  ' Jack  intended to  come, butyhe has.sprained his ankle."  The young lady looked greatly distressed.    "0\ I hope he is'.not much  hurt!"  she  cried  as  she, clasped   her  hands over her bundles.' ."Foor Jack!'  I  suppose  you  his?" .  "We.are excellent friends," Dick re-,  plied.   "My name is Richard Callender.  It seems an absurd thing to say,  but  Jack quite forgot to mention your name  to me."  "That's very odd," replied the girl.  "And you say you are such a friend of  his! My name is Mary Heatherstone.  Do you mean to say you -have never  heard John speak of me?"  "Oh, of course! ��������� What a chump I  am!" cried the young, mail, with the  fatal readiness to avoid explanations  which was one of his characteristics.  "Now, tell me all about Jack," Miss  Heatherstone said after she had been  comfortably established in a cab and  the-young man had seated himself by  'her side.   "Does he seem quite happy?"  "First rate!" said Dick. "Particularly since he became engaged."  The young lady smiled and looked  pleased. "He 'has had plenty of time  to get used to that idea." she said.  "Oh, I don't know!" Dick replied.  "Two weeks is not such a very long  time, you know."  The smile faded from the girl's face.  "Tavo weeks!"' she cried. "Why. he  has been engaged for two years!"  Dick laughed. "I suppose you are  thinking of that other little affair." he  said; "but, really, that never amounted  to anything. This time it is for good  and all. He met Gertie Gould for thc  first time two months ago, and it was  all settled a fortnight ago at the tennis club ball. Good heavens! What's  the matter?" The girl had caught him  by the wrist, and her face was deadly  pale.  "You are not deceiving me?" she  cried. "No. I seo that you are not. 1  must go home again. Tell tho cabman  to drive back to the station. Quick!  Do as I tell you!"  She was fumbling with the handle of  the door and was altogether in such  an excited state that Dick, 'who was  greatly taken aback to find himself  face to face with a tragedy, complied  .with  her instructions.  "Can I not help you In some way?"  he said at last, being greatly moved  by the sight of the girl's evident misery.  "What would you think," she asked,  rousing herself, "of a man who would  let the girl to whom he had been eu-  gaged for two jToars and who had left  her home, all happiness,to be married  to him. hear from thc lips of a stranger that he bad been false to his plighted word?"  "I should say that he was a cad!"  replied Dick fiercely, aud Miss Heatherstone smiled wanly through her  tears at his  vehemence.  As they were entering the vestibule  of the railway station Dick felt his  arm seized by his companion and. following the direction of her eyes, saw  a young stranger of pleasing appearance approaching them.  "You will protect me from insult,  won't you?" the girl asked breathless  ly, ana Dick felt'that he would be  quite equal to the occasion.' though  the other man was the heavier by  many pounds.  The stranger advanced,'smiling,' until well within the range of Miss  Ileatherstone's stony gaze, when he  stopped short, and - his outstretched  hand fell back to his side.  ���������Molly!" lie said in groat surprise.  "What is the meaning of this welcome?" , " '  "Let mo pass," replied the girl in the  tones of a tragedy queen. "I have discovered your perfidy, and I am going'  KonivJ."'    ��������� ,  Sho pushed on: and the young maw  who had at lirst showed signs of an intention to block.her progress, fell back.  "You are mad." be said, "and as for  you, sir." addressing Dick. "I shull  probably have, a few words to say to  you." '    .  "When I have escorted'this lady to  the waiting room." replied Dick loftily,  "I shall'be happy to listen to anything  you may have to say."  As soon as Dick and his charge had  entered the waiting ro6m,Miss Heatherstone turned to him. "How nobly  you ignored your former friendship!"  ,she said. "You spoke to him as if lie  were beneath your notice and a complete stranger."  "Why, so he is," replied Dick, considerably mystified. "I never saw' the  fellow before."   r  "Am I going crazy?"'  the girl, cried,  sinking'into a chair.   /'Didn't you tell  me that he sent you to meet mc; that  he had sprained his ankle?   A nieces-'  case, indeed!" ..  ,"Of whom are you speaking?" asked  Dick, bewildered.'   "Of .Lick?'.' , .      ;  "Yes! Yes! That man! Jack���������my  Jack!" , '    '  "But that isn't my Jack. My friend  is a to home, as 1 tokiV'you, ^wilh a-  sprained ankle. I don't understand it  at all. Mr. Somerville asked me"���������"  ��������� "Mr. Somerville!" cried Miss Heatherstone, sitting bolt' upright. "Is that  the name of the gentleman who sent  you?"  "Of course It is." Dick answered, almost testily.    "He told me to look out,  for a tall, "dark girl with a red .cape.  his cqusin, and���������and"^  "And you mistook,me for her? Oh, I  see it all! . Oh. Jack, Jack, how I have  wronged you!" And, to Dick's consternation, the young lady immediately  went off iuto a tit of hysterics, which  necessitated the summoning of-the attendant and the 'removal of the sufferer into an pinner room, for the application of restoratives!. \,   -  While Miss Heatherstone wrestled,  with her attack of nerves Dick,^horrified at the result- of his mistake, hastened out into the vestibule in search  of the other victim and found him leaning gloomily against a pillar. At first  the outraged swain refused to listen to  any explanation and seemed strongly  inclined,to make a personal assault upon the innocent cause of the mischief,  but Dick's remorse and agitation finally disarmed him, and when they parted  at the door of the waiting room they  shook hands with expressions of mutual esteem and thankfulness that the  error had been discovered in time.  When Dick entered the room where  his friend was still nursing his,ankle,  the latter regarded him with considerable interest.  "What's the  matter with  j^ou?"   he  asked.    "You look as if you'd- seen a  ghost.  'Where is Mary?"  "I don't know," was the reply.  "Don't   know!"   shouted   the   other.  "And you with her cape on your arm!"  Then Dick, looking down, found that  he was'still carrying the cape which  Miss Heatherstone had handed to him  in the waiting room.  "Isn't that the cape?" continued Jack  Somerville angrily.  .  Dick burst into a laugh that was half  hysterical.  "It's a red cape all right," he said,  "but-���������but it waa the wrong Mary that  was iu it."

It is done by movement of  the fingers, and the purpose of it is to  hide ihe nature of orders'from other  brokers.   The plan is after this'fashion:  When a telegraph operator receives  an order to transmit to a broker, he  will raise his index finger if the order  is to buy at an eighth; reverse it if th<j  order is to sell., Should the operator  want to indicate other fractions each  additional finger raises' the limit an  eighth. The list clinched and thumb  uplifted tells the broker that .three-  quarters is meant. When it comes'to  seven-eighths, that fraction is made by  forming a right angle, with the thumb  and first finger, and, finally, if the eveis  figure is wanted a waving movement  of the hand is used. l  This is tho system adopted by nearly  every active broker in-making transactions, but to prevent others from following up their orders some have an  independent notation device and will  communicate by signs which are  known only to the operator and the  broker directly concerned.���������Philadelphia Telegraph.  Tlie  Modern  Editorial.  An essay on  "The Boston Newspa  pers" in the Bookman throws some light  on ihe development of the modern editorial., The earlier newspapers had no  editorials. Attempts to mold public  opinion took the form of letters signed  "Publius." "Junius" and like Latin  names.  ' The writer in the Bookman' claims  for Boston the honor of originating the  present editorial form. The Boston  Daily Advertiser and Repertory, the  first successful Boston.' daily, was  founded in' 1S13 and the next year  passed into the hands of Nathan Hale,  nephew of the spy of the Revolution.^  II.".lo began to substitute leading articles written in the office for those formerly furnished by the stalwart .Romans��������� "Fabius." ."Honestus." "Nov-  Anglus," "Laco" and "Massachusetten-  sis." i ~'  The fashion set-: by the Advertiser  was widely copied and at length became general.''Mr. Hale came to take  such pride in his innovation that when  distinguished men 'like - Everett and  Webster offered articles'for use as editorials he insisted on printing them as  communications., Only the staff men  were allowed to write the regular edk  torinl1 comment.

He stepped  over the edge and fell in, dragging  the wagon after .him,-and but for.  having been noticed by some neighbours, would assuredly have quickly become chilled aud drowned.

Just as he Was about to  fasten his teeth in the meat-the stone.  - would.swing back and bang his head.'1  -This ,would arous_e������������������the anger of. the  bear, and be would" give the stone a  sweep of his paw which would send  it swinging farther out. The consequence was a harder bang and - more  auger. The more he struck the stone  the harder he would be hit in return  until from ferocious anger he would  lose his caution and attack the pendulum with all his vigor. One powerful  sweep, then bang! and bruin would be  tumbled out of the tree to the rocks  below, where, disabled by his fall, be  would be at the mercy of those who  set the trap whenever they chose to  take him.  *- --   -��������� ��������� ��������� ���������  T_e Disadvantages of Heroism.
