We v.-ore coining  Sionie from the concert, and he"���������  Miss' Lingard's laugh in:; accents  reached the door of the cloakroom just  as Miss Waters ami Miss Burrows  went out.  ."Silly! She is the silly one! Ths  most conceited g'irl 1 ever knew!" ox-  claimed Nellie Waters, snapping a rub-  Jjor band about lier notebook.  Alice Burrows stooped for an imag-  futtry raveliug in her .skirt binding, unci  Lor friend did not see her --.uivcrhig  lips. "When she1 stood erect once more,  , they were joined by other teachers  and passed down the corridor.  The first hour  was given over to a  lecture on  chalk  work 'in  geography,  but Alice was deaf lo pedagogic sug-'  ,. gestlons, blind to the vivid  drawings  ��������� ,of tbe,faddist who held  forth, before  the teachers of'Tucson county; assembled'for the annual institute. j Above  the voice of the speaker raug insistently the words of Hattie Lingard���������"Professor   Storm   proposed 'to   me   last  night."    ��������� '  Well,   why   shouldnH   he?   thought  ���������,'Alice despairingly.   Miss Lingard was.  rioted beyond the confines of the coun-'  ,ly as'.a beauty and, a coquette, just the  sort- of young woman who would nt-  ;-tract a, studious, earnest man like Mr.  Storm.   Yes, why shouldn't he?   What  '.'did  be owe  quiet,   gentle  Alice--Bur-..  ro***s?   He bad spoken no word of love  >  to her, and yet��������� ������ Her'cheeks flushed  [r crimson, and she bent her face closer  to tbe notebook, whoso pages were still  unwritten. r It hadjillbcien a. mistake.  She had misinterpreted the.actions of  this   grave "young   professor  who  for  , two years had 'conducted the classes in  mathematics'at the' institute,    Perhaps  it had even been unmaidenly for her  tb read, the clear depths" of his hazel  ������ycs.    n  ������-'  Tbe  morning" dragged  wearily.    At  - noon.her appetite failed. By the opening of .the afternoon session a maddening headache possessed  her.    During  .-tlie last period of the day her section  - must report to Professor Storm..'   She  .would have-excused herself and gone  liome.'.only  that every one knew she  . must5 only sit in tho depot during the  ".. hot" August afternoon.    Mervale;  her  ' home*  was  but a thirty, minute ride  from the county seat, and to please  .  her invalid mother Alice made the trip  each day, thus depriving herself of the  small social functions arranged for the  ' evenings in honor of the visiting teach-  ors, a humorous lecture, several receptions and the concert  '. Protjssor Storm had asked her to attend the concert with him, but she had  been    forced   to    decline.    Now   ,she  .thought,   with   increasing   bitterness,  tli&������'-"he had quickly consoled himself  - Ia. her absence. . Perhaps if, like the  other   teachers,,  she   had   boarded   in  ' town���������      '  ���������"If any. of you failed to grasp the  -method used in that last, problem, I  wi'fi be'glad'to remaiira short time and  "go over ifr������again."    .'    ''���������-  y .What, problem?    Alice  pressed  her  ".Stand to her forehead and glanced hurriedly at her notebook!    Blindly she  .���������clutched at'.her. pencil.    Half a dozen  teachers    remained,    and   - Professor  Storm  was-stepping  down   from   the  platform.  ,PIo reached her side.  "What.is the trouble?.   Are you ill?"  ,IIe glanced curiously from the clean  ���������page of he'r book" to her flushed face.  i-"or a few.seconds speech was denied  .(hor.    Then she replied calmly, almost  ���������coldly:  -.* "I fear my mind wandered. I missed  the explanation entirely."  Storm looked at the clock.  "You'ha'vo forty minutes before train  firao. Come up to my desk and 1. will  &(> over it with you."  Mechanically she followed his work,  wondering if the ordeal would ever  tnd. But her voice did not quiver as  she rose.  ."Thank you. It is quite simple now  ���������as simple as. one plus one equaling  two."  She ���������*told' the fib unflinchingly, but  ficr eyes*did not meet his. The other  teachers had gathered In a remote corner to discuss the absorbing question  ii3'to���������'whether hats should be worn at  the reception to be given that night  by the local woman's club. Storm laid  a cool, shapely hand over her feverish  one.  "1 "wish," he said softly, "that you  ���������would, let me teach you that one plus  one equals���������just one.   May I���������Alice?"  It bad not been her mistake, after  all. lie had meant���������  "Girls, are you ever coming?"  It was Miss Lingard's voice, just  .outside the door. Then Alice remembered and drew away her hand.  "Iteally, Professor Storm, if you advance such propositions as that I  shall lose faith in your knowledge of  mathematics."  And with a metallic laugh she hurried toward the cloakroom. Storm  looked after her jrith eyes first puz  zled, then hurt. He bad never pictured ber as a willful flirt. And she  had led him on. Yes. -she had! He repented the words .'-gain and again as  if ,io smooth his rufiled  feelings.  The next morn:::-; Miss Waters' was  (vnitk'.g* on the depot platform for her  fr:<������ud.  "'Oh.

As you here behold'him he'is'nine  feet tall, weighs GOO pounds and lias  hands like hams and feet like washboards. His shoulders arc humped up  to his 'cars.. Ii is knees sprung inward,  and it would take ten porous plasters  to cover the length of his back. < ' " ,  He was the only thins like it on tLo  face'of the earth at 1hertime,.but how  Eve could have fallen in love with hiin  is beyond my lime.

We" of today can  find fault with the length of the neck,  'the width of the mouth and the hump  in 'the'middle'of the nose, but there  was no doulSt that he was(calied perfect in hi<* day and may have taken the  prize at a beauty show.    t  I now call your attention to a series  of pictures bringing man down  from j,  Ihe garden of Eden to the year of our  -Lord.

When  you first find j-ourself in deep water  you have only to consider yourself an  empty pitcher. Let your mouth and  nose, and not the top of your heavy  head, be the highest part of you and  you ,are safe. But thrust up one of  your bony hands aud down you go-7  turning up the Uandle .tips .over the  pitcher." There are reason and logs*'  in this.  Tolerance.  Tolerance is a calm, generous respect  for the opinions of others, even of one's  enemies. Tolerance is silent justice  blended with sympathy. Tolerance always implies wisdom and kindness. It  seeks to convert others from error by  gently raising them to higher ordeals,  by leading them to broader lines'- of  thinking,, by patiently helping them to  help themselves. Tolerance*, does not  use the battering ram of argument or  the club of sarcasm or the rapier of  ridicule.���������Selected.  EVENING   DRESSES.

Telling Time by tlie Porch.  Tlie oldest system by which men  have told the time of day is sundials.  There are sundials still in existence  since long before the Christian era. In  fact, they have been found in Egypt  dating1 before the pharaohs. The Indians and wild nations told the time  by the position of the shadows of  trees or mountains. The Chinese have  carried the art of sundials to perfection aud even today use pocket sundials instead of watches. One Chinese  watchmaker has arranged liis front  porch in such a way the shadow of the  posts tells the time by which to regulate the watches.���������Ada Paterson in Pilgrim.   ... _. ..    .    .

The result of thoughtlessness in its  use is a stiff neck for somebody who is  so uufortunate as to havo to sit directly in front of one of these waving objects for an hour or two iu an audience room.

TUESDAY,   DEC. 29 , 1903  HONEY AS AsFOOD.  It Ka of Great Value a������ a Medicine  aud Highly Nutritions. '  "Starch" and sugar .when eaten' undergo a digestive change before they are  assimilated. In honey this "change has  been made to n considerable extent by  the' bees. It Is easy of assimilation nnd  concentrated aud furnishes' the same  element of nutrition us sugar and  starch���������imparts, warmth and energy.  As'a medicine honey has great value  and many uses. It is excellent lu niost  lung and throat affections nnd.Is often  . used with great^beneflt in place-of cod  liver oIL Occasionally there is a person  with whom it does riot agree, but most  people can "learn to use it with ^beneficial results: Children, who have more  nutural appetites, generally prefer It to  butter. Honey is laxative and sedative,,  aud in.diseases of the bladder and kidneys it Is'anf excellent remedy. - It has  tnueh the same effect as wine or" stimulants.' without the Injurious effects, and  'to unequaled In mead, and harvest  drinks.   As an external application, It *  " is irritating" when clear and soothing  when diluted. In^many' places it is *  much appreciated, as a remedy for  croup^ and colds., In preserving, fruit'  the formic acid it contains makes a better preservative'than sugar sirup, and  it is also used in cooking nnd confectionery,  i,  lit early times, it Is said. -Palestine  flowed with:mhk and honey'���������-but we  have-far more of both today than .the  people of any'age ever had: Honey  does not injure the teeth as candies do.  ,- Hea 1 ill.,       i^j___  '    Patti Made.His Reputation.   ���������    t  "Adelinn Tutti was not always sCoeh a  ���������'gold nilne" to managers us some unij;  .'suppo>i'.

Among the  many ��� unpleasant tasks
- which fall to ,the lot"of "a concert agent
' not the'least difficult'is to decline the
. tempting. .offers    of   certain    virtuosi
without  hurting ��� their  very   sensitive
feelings.     . . '.. v���
.When Pan Ogle Trepanowski wrote
to me from Poland in this sense, nay
- first impulse was lo indite a very firm
refusal.    Heading his  letter a second
.. , time, hpv/over, I gathered from tlie
mixture'of English and'what, appeared
to be Volapuk, in which his intentions
were conveyed, thnt he was following
on its heels with such truly artistic
impetuosity that no reply could possibly reach him in time to prevent his
departure. ���,   -  - A
All his qualifications were duly set
forth. Of course his',"hJuf"(he inclosed
a photograph) and his'names were *in-
- exceptional; the rest I did not go into.
It was quite out of the question for me
- to run any pianoforte virtuoso on my
owd account, unless indeed it had been
the Paderewski himself. ''     "      "   ,'
On   the  morning of  the 14th   I  received   a' telegram   couched   in   these
terms: "Locomotive twelve liours per-
' mit that one encounters me to-the station, /rrepapowpki."  ' On solving this���-
'.' he hacl evidently got it 'word by' word
from a dictionary��� I gathered that the
professor was coining by way of Quebec on the .12 o'clock"���traiu, .and wanted
. to be met at the station.    *      *    -   ���    ���
I   went down   myself  and  saw   the
'   train in.' Pan���Ogle.was there���a private
.   rdetective could not have missed him.
He  stood well over six feet and was-
broad even for his height.  Despite the
' ' warmth of a. summer's day .he- wore
an- immense ,fur  lined  overcoat  with
���   collar and'euffs of sable.   .
He spoke English rather'worse than
he wrote it, but fortunately understood
fairly well what was said.to" him.    He.
was full of questions" about the series
- of concerts which he supposed I  had'
already arranged .for him.   I avoided
1   giving any definite replies as'well as I"
could,until we reached the house.   .
*   During-luncheon  I   was  saved  any
trouble by the artist's appetite, which
was well sustained and did credit' to
i    my v housekeeping.    We  retired to the
music room, and I got Pan Ogle behind ,
a big cigar before breaking to him Unit
I had not yet arranged any concerts.
,   I .told him' that many most deserving,
foreign artists spent their first decade
in New York in playing for nothing at
the   functions   of   wealthy  patrons   of
the art and in giving their services at
charity concerts, or, in fact, "wherever
two or three could be gathered together
to hear them.   I said that was a popular error into which all Europe seemed
to have falfeh.  1 -tokl him we were the
most musical nation in  the  world.   T
sank my voice to a confidential whisper. 1 said. ''The real reason we cannot
get audiences is that for some time past
listeners have been to a man (or a woman) better performers than those on
the platform."   '
Pan Ogle looked incredulous.   It was
lime to lead' trumps.    I said.  ''I  will
wager anything-you liko that the first
tradesman who calls at this house this
.   afternoon  will  play  you  any ,onc   of
Beethoven's    sonatas    you   choose    to
Pan Ogle laughed aloud.
"You make what you call ze fun, is
it not?'' he asked.
"I was never more serious in my
���'.fc\'' L replied. I rang the boll, and the
servant entered.

"What can 1 do for you today, sir?"
he said.    "I have "inst started a  new

��� 3y recommend.   I call them the Dir.iin-
iiondo   brand   merely   for  distinction.
Thc3* taper toward one end, you see."
I .suppressed a smile.
"It was not in connection with your
���or���profession that I wanted to see
you, Mr. Blunt.    Do you play the piano?"
"Well, I do, sir, or, rather, I did. In
fact, I very much 'wanted to go in for
the music ...when I left school, but my
father would not hear of it- He said
there was no mouey iu it. 'The music
business is" played but,' he would say.
''There are too on any at it.' But the art
of making sausages will always provide a competency for the few.' "
r'Quite true, Mr. Blunt," I assented.
"Now, tlje professor and I are at issue

The pork butcher sat down deferentially on the piano stool, presenting a
months; still to oblige a customer," and
he struck the commanding phrase
which begins the introduction.
Before he had played many bars the
pork butcher had disappeared and the
artist was -, revealed. The ,'colossal
phrases of Beethoven's last' sonata
were given out with a certainty, a restrained force, a nobility of tone, an all
compelling rhythm, which took the listener by the throat.
Pan Ogle .Trepanowski leaned forward in his chair and gasped for breath.
.When  the last chord   had1, died '^away
there, was a hushed pause,

polyglot superlatives.' He embraced the
reluctant pork' butcher. He demanded
of me why such a player did not.devote
himself to the career, of a virtuoso. ' 1
assured him that Mr. Blunt'was a fair
specimen of the public to whom artists
had to appeal in America. s
"I don't know whether you arc aware
of it," said Blunt; speaking to mo, "but
your two servants are capital hands at
the violin and cello. They come around
to my house for:a trio sometimes when
they get a Sunday.oft'."     -
l,rang the bell, and Parkin again appeared. '      - ' .
"Mr. Blunt toilsome you play, the vio:

: ''Yes, sir," answered Parkin, as'placidly as if I" had ordered whisky- and
soda.  ' ' ���
Ho' return qd almost 'immediately,
bringing his violin., William followevi
him. Apparently, disturbed-in "'tho act
of blacking boots, .his' hands ."arid arms
bore unmistakable signs of'his employment, this evidence* being eked-out by
a largo black'smear down one side"of
his nose. He carried his violoncello in
one hand and lfis bow in the "other.
��� "You did not tell me you played the
cello,': I said to. Williarn. .."I. want
you to show this gentleman how three
Americans can play this trio of Sme-
tana. Do you"think you can "manage
it?" ,    <-
I handed him the music which I had
taken from ,the bookcase." He laid
down his bow- and rubbed'-his hantl
ou his trousers before turning over the'
leaves with a gingerly thumb and forefinger.

The "technical difficulties of this romantic work of Smetana arc extreme,
even when they are familiar,' but "to
render the composition at sight with
the freedom and. abandon which "it demands might fairly be deemed impossible." Nevertheless on this-" occasion
the astounded.professor heard a, performance wherein the complete mastery of^ the several instruments was
surpassed by the unanimity and poetry
of the rendering.
Trepanowski declared he had never
heard such an ensemble. His admiration was so frank and general that'I
began to ��� have scruples of conscience.
It was too late to go back, however. I
pressed him'to play. He declined politely, but firmly.
I dismissed the performers with
thanks for the exercise of their skill,
the professor adding many compliments both intelligible and otherwise."
When we found oiirselves alone Tre-
.pr.nowski remained silent.
"It is merveilleux!" he ejaculated at
length. "What then are your public
artists like?"'
"You   have  heard  D'Eugen?"   I  inquired iu turn.,
"Ja. ja.. He is magnifique:"
"Well, he left America.   Why did he
leave England?   You shall answer tho
question for yourself."
lie gave another shrug.'
"I shall think; 1 shall write to yon;

I insisted on seeing him to the station. On the way ho was wrapped in a
gloomy silence. Only when we arrived
on the platform did he recover a little.
A harsh cvoioed porter was calling out

IpA,,','**?  ,A ljHtition is being circulated  throughout the country asking that  a tax,be placed on guns. - The  shooting clubs of the larger towns  have  taken   the  matter  in   hand,  . and no doubt will be'able to accomplish much in this direction. As  advocated', some time ago in these  C"lura**t, in view of the late distressing gun accidents throughout the  country, and notably in this district, it .would seem advisable that  certain restrictions be placed on  persons handling firearms. Public  safety demands this.", Tbe "law regarding minors seems to be a dead  letter, and really;it makes very  litile difference   when   people   as  ' ignorant of the principles"of a gun  and as insensible of the danger of  -explosives as unbirn-children  are,  allowed   to  go through the woods  with* high   power   shooting   arms  ' without'restraint.     The   time  hat?  - i ������  come when the would he hunter  should be made to pass an"examination'before brinv? allowed tb go  out Krilh.tr gun a -d no guardian.  In order to m**et the expense necessary to m:ike tbnse examinations, a  ;fr*e should be charged on all guns,  and no true sportsman, who has a  prop r regard for the bafrty;of.his',  and    hie.   fellow - creature's   live-,'  should obi- cf to this.    It is a small  i J ��������� i  .paient for perso .al safety.     In    o'  far as'the protection of game goes,  which'no"doubt is also thought of  by the  promoters.of  the petitions,  in-"that"'theVfees"collected may be'  . used .towards'paying wardens, the  idea is  also good,  and  the one officer could be made to do both ser--  vires, but there should  not .be lost'  eight of the fact that the very best-  protection for game is' to prohibit  the sale of such.      Our friends on  Dehman and Hornby Islands know  the "curse of leaving blue grouse on  the free sale list while willow grouse  are prohibited.   These islands, once  po'"'���������prolific--of biue,   but barren-*'of  willow giouse, are now almost clear  ed of.birds by the insatiable market  fhogs.    By all means let these birds  "-be protected-like the willow grouse.  With resptct to gun licences, provision  should be made   to exempt  farmers   and -orchardists  sho.jting  on their ownland. "- ,  Telegraphic News  Victoiia, Dec. 26th���������Case, before  full Court today to decide whe:her  it was competent for Legislature to  pass "measures to exclude Chinese  in mines. McPhillips argued the  case for the Government and held  that regulation providing that  Chinese be excluded was not inseri-  ed because they are aliens, but because they are ignorant, negligent,  and. careless. The decision by  Privy Council in (Bryden vs Union  Colliery Co." did not a; ply in this  case. He held that this decision  bore out simply the question of  alienation and naturalization are in  the power of the Dominion once  thny passed from that of the Province, It was undisputed that  Province had the right to regulate  coal mines and was able to exclude  ~those who constituted a danger on  the latter ������round and not as aliens.
