J.  Graves. About 80 sat'down to the'  well-filled board, and heartily enjoyed "the dainty supper provided  by the caterers,, Mr and Mrs S.  Shore. Among those gathered together weTe 12 novitiates of the  Order,* having been, that evening  initiated just prior to the supper.  These additions to the,ranks of the  Woodmen are the result of Mr  Graves work here during the past  week.    -,.''' ���������  The evening passed in a most  pleasant manner, enlivened as it  was by 6ongs<, and speeches' from  the various respondents.' < We how  wish to cull attention to a mistake  which was made,'and , which is being often made at functions of this  kind, and, this���������responding to- the  toast���������-The King, This is not only  unnecessary, but incorrect.

Kilpatrick said that people  blamed Mayor Grant, him, and one,  other Alderman, for being desirous  of removing Banks,- and starting  trouble. Wished to deny this, as  he had nothing against the officer.  He had understood that certain of  the Aldermen had even made the  insinuation, and that Bank's dismissal had been agreed to at a cau-"  ciis before the elecdon. If any  member of the Board thought thisj  he wished him to state so in Coun-  cii, as he denied the_allegations.

Carthew said he had imagined that he was the black sheep  people referred to in this connection  and not Aid. Kilpatrick.  The incident dropped.  Aid Daniels in speaking Bank's '  position, thought that he should  pay more attention to wholesale  liquor houses, reported to be selling  by retail, and to candy stores and  places of that description, said to  be gambling arid drinking resorts.  He said that there had been much  talk, and while he did not think it  right for a man to work both day  and night, as Mr Banks said, he  must endeavour to check the evils,  if they existed, even if he had to  give up all day work for a time.   i  Mr Banks here explained that he  * had.only lately heard of gambling.  Aid. Short said that everyone had  heard of it, not only lately, but long  s-ince, and Mr Banks must know of  what was being said.  Aid. McFadyen wanted Mr Banks  to explain why the transgressors  had not been arrested.  Mr Banks answered that it had  been his idea to catch several at  once, for if he caught one, as he  could have done, the others then  would take warning, and the fines  would be lost to the city.  Aid. Short wanted to know if he  caught one, would that one case  have the effect of stopping the traffic/for if so, by all means catch that  one, and so stop it.  There was then a little discussion regarding the advisability of  having the publication of the matter suppressed, several thinking it  would interfere with Mr Banks  duties in the future.  Aid. Daniels thought that everything should be published, for if the  publication had the effect of frightening the transgressors into proper  ways, then the object was attained.  It should not be the intention to  endeavour to have a man fined, but  'pHOUGH we .can't, match this in  Double-ttreasted. Coats, we have  everything that is beautiful and useful in  this popular style ���������and others can't  match our prices.

Raine  She noticed that the Cuban sun and  fever had taken it out of, him a good  bit. He walked as erect as ever, but  his uniform coat hung loose about him  like a sack and his step lacked the  buoyant spring that used to distinguish  his approach. He .took her, pink little  i palm in his tanned yellow hand with  ��������� a great sigh of relief.     < ' ���������  "It's good to get back to God's country again." he told her. after the first  greetings were past.  "I suppose you did miss a good many  things down there. It must have been  awful, if the newspaper- accounts are  truo"   -  ��������� He shrugged his thin shoulders.  '    "It wasn't exactly-a picnic; but, then,  men don't go to war for fun���������at least  . they are not liable to find it if they  do."  "And what did you miss most?"  A flash of his old,audacity leaped.to  his eye."  "A  little  girl  in  New  York.  There  were  other  things   I   wanted���������  iced drinks, something to eat that'was  ��������� green,  a place to sleep in  where the  water   wasn't', more-than   six 'inches  deep���������but it was the girl I wanted to  see most."- i  '   She gave him her .most suave smile.  ,, "I,didn't know j-ou had any sisters."  "Fhaven't.  .This was another man's  sister."  "Oh!'   ' .     .  There did  not seem to be anything  further to say along that line, so far  - as she was concerned.   Presently she  asked: ^ \  .."Has    the    regiment    been    ordered  home?" '        '  Yes; we're' all here���������what's left of  us!"' Then he added, "I came home  to tell this girl I love her."  "Yes?" she asked with polite interest. "Did you have the regiment ordered home just'for that?' Isn't It  taking a good deal of trouble?"  "Not too much. That's what I'm here  for���������to take trouble, if I can only gain  my end."'  She murmured something about hoping she would be able to congratulate  him,soon. ���������  '   . . ���������  His big eyes covered her steadily.  "Do you really hope so?"  "Of 'course. But do tell me about the  war. I'm just dying to know all about  how it feels to be in battle."  "There's nothing much to tell," he  answered, somehow feeling baffled  without quite , knowing why. "It's  awfully hot and dusty, and once in a  while some, poor fellow gets knocked  over. There isn't anything much to  see. One,gets a throat like a limekiln;  no trouble at all to raise a thirst.  That's aboiif all. But there's something  else I'd rather talk about."  ",Oh,   yes���������the   charges   against  the  government about the feeding and care  of the soldiers," she acquiesced hastily,  the charges!   I'm not worry-  thera at all.   It's this girl 1  want to talk about."  "Oh, that girl again!"  "Yes; I'm interested in her.**  "Is she nice?"  "I think so."  "And good looking?"  "Well,   her  looks  make a  hit   with  mo."  "Doubtless she would be gratified to  know it."  "I'm not so sure about that," he answered, looking at her swiftly. "In  point of fact, she knows it already, only  she pretends not to. I can't seem to  find out where I stand with her. When  I get read}' to tell her, she laughs at  me with the gravest fa^e imaginable.  One can't grow sentimental when a  girl i.s making game of one, you know."  "No, I suppose not," she assented demurely.  He took a grip on himself and decided-that the time had come to'storm  this fortress, to which the ruu up San  Juan hill appeared a mere bagatelle.  "There was once a young fellow at  the Point." he began nervously. "Naturally lie'thought himself in love, but  the curious thing is that he was in  love. Fact is he didn't know any more  about girls than you do about the  native jargon of the Hindoo. He  never had been with them. But once���������  .well, the sister of a classmate came  visiting at the Point, and after that  she was the only woman in the world  that counted."  She settled herself more comfortably  in the chair and smiled dazzlingly at  him. Never a maiden more unconscious of his ulterior meaning.  "How charmingly romantic! Do go  on.:. I hope there will be immense difficulties in the way���������another lover, obdurate .parent, heartrending separation,  mutual vows of undying fealty."  "No; there wasn't any obdurate parent. So far as I could find out her father hadn't any objections to my���������to  this young fellow���������marrying his daughter. There were separations enough.  He had to play hide and seek with  the Apaches in Arizona for a year or  two. hut I never discovered that her  heart was rent."  "Hang  Ing about  ''Perhaps it was loaned or even given  away," she bubbled. '   <  He paid no attention to this sally,  though he appreciated it. '���������  "There was another lover," he continued, eyes lull on hers. "He was "a  man of a good'deal-of force, had made  his own way in the world and was on  the road to wealth. He could give her  all the things that this lieutenant  couldn't give her, the luxuries she had  been used to all her life."  "Oh. 1" see.' He could feed her on  bonbons."  This most innocently.  "He could provide for her as she  ought to be provided for."  "Still it Is Just conceivable that even  i  girl  niight weary  of eating  sweets  The livelong year in and year out,'isn't  it?" she asked, with a touch of asperity. ,       ,        "      ���������  "I'm not talking about* confections  exactly, but there are decencies to be  observed.^.

'   ,  "Of course he asked her whether she  would like to go there. He didn't go  away without giving her ii chance, I  suppose.',' ' /  The lieutenant, flushed. "He simply,  couldn't ask her.

"That, was, very generous of him,"  sheadmitted cordially. "But you must  be wrong about the officer,- Lieutenant  Weston. He couldn't have really believed in the girl if he thought these  luxuries were more to her than the'man  she loved. If' he had thought her a  true woman he would not have hesitated to give her the choice. It would  not have" been fair to her to go away  without a word.

Judging.by results,1 the Roman  army  was so from  the  lifth  century  B. C onward until the division of the  empire.   Its fighting organization was  us complete as and possibly more practical than that of any army of today.  It was1 based on a  territorial  system  which maintained the comradeship of  locality   without   bringing   it   into  antagonism  with tbat of the corps,  for  each of the thirty-five Roman "tribes"  was required lo furnish to each legion  four "centuries" of 120 men,  each  of  which worked together as a local unit  The  legion   was divided  into five  cohorts   or   battalions,   of   which   three  were  troops  of the'line,  two were a  kind of militia and the fifth was a depot battalion., For almost eight centuries the army thus constituted not only  conquered the then known world, but  acted  as  explorers beyond  its, limits,  and at the same time made and unmade kings and emperors in Rome itself.   In modern times the Prussian army,'which  won   Sadowa   and  Sodan  and overran both Austria and France,  was    the    strongest    the    world    has  known.���������London Answers  Punch   and Judy In  China.

Gone is their joy. ' Their eyes  are dimmed, their manes uncombed,  their hoofs" unshod;, their nostrils  breathe no more 'the fire .of victory.  For the Star of India shines'not today; the Mount of Light has lost its'  lustre, and'the Splendor'of India its  shining  rarya. ' a  In 'the hour of majesty has come to'  him the frailty of man. But yester-'  day the sacred oils upon his brow  and, bosom would have anointed him  the twice-born of 'heaven. And now  the hand of fate gives him healing  herbs   instead.  But. yesterday all lnd had turned  her gaze westward beyond the' ocean  waves, and in her heart had witness-1  ed the setting of the crown upon his  brow, yearning to witness the yet  greater scene in her own Imperial  city, when he would be enthroned as  her Supreme King. And now,' strewing ashes upon her head and donning  the salTron robe, she stands upon her  western shore and mingles her bitter  tears with the tears of the sea. For  to-day the hand of fate has turned  the splendor of her King to the  frailly  of  man.  But,' O best belove'l, because of  that, very frailty our hearts are at  his feet. We would have honored  him as our crowned Emperor and  'done him homage upon oi r knees.  Now we hold him as our father, and  weep upon his hands and feet in loving  tears.  For the seeming- shadow that has  come upon him is but the brightness  of a jewel upon his crown���������thenars  of the parting bride that is but the  forty-rayed star of diamonds, rubies  and pearl.'-' upon her brow. Now we  know him to be our chosen one. This  sorrow i.s to him but as the lily of  Cashmere to the maiden's ehee and  tlie lotUxS of lhe .Jumna to her lips-  new  joy,  new  beauty.  Flock to your temples, 0 ye people.  Pray -to . benign Lakshrni to remove  'this' sorrow���������but to let "s keep the  new-found love; -to remove the (horn  from the rose, but to let us keep its  sweetness.

I THE TWO    f  4. MINUTE I  | FUSE    w^m    !  6 Wallace Cook   0  A      -" Copyright, 1901, by W. W. Cook. Q  ��������� l   - 1  Andy and Blakesly had settled it between them that the Dutchman was a  thief. Andy had missed a silver watch,  Higgius a pocketbook with $5 in it'and  Baker a  nugget valued at $20 which  he had kept iu his trunk.  Andy  had wakened  out of a sound  ' sleep   a   few   nights" before   and   had  Keen Fritz skulking through the biink-  liouse.'   When Andy failed to find his  . watch next morning, there was but one  Inference for him to draw.  There in the end of the "drift"  he  and Blakesly figured the matter all out.  In the afternoon Fritz was not only to  be discharged, but also to see the in-  , side of the Ph'enix jail.  ��������� Blakesly .sat reflectively oh the handle of his wheelbarrow.    Andy threw  down his drill, unwound a two minute  length of fuse from the coil,  scraped  the end  and   slipped  on  a  cap.    He  pushed the cap down into the hole and  & followed it with  two sticks of dynamite, gently ramming them uome, and  filling up the hole with' dust.  "Great Scott!" exclaimed Blakesly.  "You're putting in a charge for your  life, Andy." ,  . "I'm going to blow but this horse and  uncover the vein," returned the .foreman, "if it takes a leg."- Just then a  burst of childisli laughter echoed to  them.    "Is that Allie?",- he asked.    .  Allie was his daughter, a motherless,  sunny faced child, who had been the  especial protege of Mrs. Hurst, the  keeper of the boarding house, ever  since her father had brought her to the  Pactolus mine. 'Occasional"*/ Allie was  allowed to come down into the workings, which was always a treat for her.  She was a prime favorjte, and every  one of the miners would have guarded  her as the apple of his eye.  "It  must   be   Ailie,"   said. Blakesly,  getting up and starting off.  . At that precise minute the noon whistle of the stamp mill sounded.  "Take   Allie   up   with   you,"   Andy  called after Blakesly.  'All right," returned Blakesly,  halt-  ing at the' shaft."  The ladder was filled with,climbing  miners, Fritz at the lower., end of the  row.  "Where's Allie, Fritz?" asked Blakesly.  "She vas gone oop alretty," answered  Fritz, looking down.  "Sure about that?"  "Yah,   sure.   Kingman   carried   her  oudt.  I seen lffm meinself." .  All the miners of the day shift .except Kingman and Andy were now on  the ladder. Blakesly was satisfied and  started,nimbly up the greasy-rungs.  The foreman removed his tools to a  place of safety, applied the flame of  his 'candle to the end of the. fuse,,  /watched the fuse splutter for .a..mo-,  ment and 'then made his way to the  ladder and started for the. surface himself.  '. "Where's Allie?" asked Andy, springing out of the shaft and hurrying after  Blakesly.  "She came  up  with   Kingman,"  replied Blakesly.  "Who told you?"  "Fritz."  The miners were straggling out, singly and in couples, on their way to  , the boarding house. Kingman ��������� as in  the lead, walking alone. Fritz' was  just ahead of the foreman and Blakesly.  "Hello,    Kingman!"   shouted   Andy.  "Where's Allie?"  Kingman turned.  "Didn't she come up with you?" he  asked. ^  Every miner in the straggling line  came to an abrupt halt. The very  thought that Allio. might still be below  with a fuse lighted and leaping closer  and closer to a terrific charge of dynamite was'sufficient to set every heart  to pounding. There were other charges  In the level, too. but they were light  compared with the one in the breast of  the tunnel.  Andy wont white in a second.  "You infernal villain!" he roared,  springing upon Fritz and gripping him  by the throat.  Fritz tore himself loose and ran frantically back to the shaft.  "Kingman vent past der slope in it  Allie on his shouitcr," he flung at them  as he raced.  "I did," cried Kingman, joining the  rest as they flocked excitedly after  Fritz, "but she said she'd rather come  up .with her father, so I lowered her  down the ladder again. Didn't you see  her,  Andy?"  "Oh, my God!" gasped the foreman  and threw his hands to his face.  "How many holes were loaded?" demanded Blakesly.  "Three," said Higgins.  "All two minute fuses?"  It was a   useless -question,  for  that  was the standard length for the noon  firing.  Andy staggered against tbe frame-  Work, of the "whim,"  bis face ashen  and   his   nerve  completely  gone.     He  could do nothing.  "Perhaps she's coming up!" suggested  Blakesly.  Another useless remark, for Allie  could not have climbed the ladder if  she had tried. . Blakesly leaped on the  platform to look down, but Fritz had  already swung tbe ox hide ore bucket  over the shaft had kicked the coil, of  rope into the depths and had gripped  the strands convulsively..  ���������It was a time for action, not for-  words. How many seconds of tbe precious 120 had already slipped away?  The climbing of the ladder, the walk'  toward the boarding house, the colloquy,' the backward rush���������it seemed as  though all that must have consumed  the time to the uttermost second. ���������  "She's not coming oop!" cried Fritz,  and as he spoke he sprang into the  bucket and.dropped from sight.  ���������  One glimpse of hi������ wild, terror stricken face was all they caught, and then  came the swirl of the rope and the  shriek of the unoiled sheave. In a  breath there followed the bump of the  bucket at the bottom of the shaft, and  the rope leaped upward and hung limp  and shaking.  Boom! came from below, a puff of  bluish smoke curling upward above the  platform planks.  "One!" whispered Blakesly, drawing  away from the choking powder.  Boom! ���������    ��������� '.'  "Two!" gasped Higgins, holding his  hat over his mouth, and kneeling .to  peer downward. > ���������    ��������� ���������  "Do   you   see   anything���������hear   anything?" demanded Kingman hoarsely.  Higgins turned a despairing face toward. Kingman and shook his head.  Boom! '  ��������� From under them came a sodden roar  .which seemed to-rive the earth asunder. ' Kingman was thrown from his  feet, ard the others on the platform  flung oiit their hands in an attempt to  grasp something and support themselves.- Up from the blackness rolled a  billow of sulphurous fog. <  "Fritz was mad to go down there,"  said Kingman., "They!re .both lost.  What are you doing, Blakesly?"  Blakesly had jerked off his coat and  was wrapping it about.his head.  "If> they're not both done for now,"  he replied in muHied tones, "they soon  will lie if we don't get them up. Stand  ready to man the whim rope, when I  shake it." '     '  He crawled gropingly to the ladder  and. lowered himself. All watched the  rope breathlessly.' Finally; after a wait  that seemed hours in duration, the signal was given, and stout hands drew  the bucket to the surface.  A little head lay against the bucket's  rim, and a white childish face met the  eyes of the men. Allie! Kingman took  her ont of the bucket. She was unconscious, but the miracle was that she  did not appear to be hurt. Not a stone  of all that flying debris had struck her.  She was given into the eager, trembling arms of her father, who started  at a run for the boarding house.  Meanwhile the bucket had again  been lowered. The signal from Blakesly was longer in coining than the first  had. been, and when the. bucket was  drawn up a second time it was found  to contain Fritz���������Fritz, bruised, torn '  and bleeding, his clothes all but  stripped from his body. Tender hands  lifted him to the platform and stretched  his mangled limbs out on the rough  planks. They thought he was dead,  but ln's eyelids quivered unexpectedly  and partly opened.  /'I vas between Allie nnd der rocks,"  he whispered weakly. "She vas in my  arms mid nodding touched her. It vas  my mistake, und it's all right, all  right."  His   spirit   flickered   and '-went  x^iui^A&mt^weimimKKKimrjcji  a"  a?

As she held up her face to  the evening breeze, her fair'skin, yellow hair and delicate features made  her appear, like some, faint star just  glancing'above the horizon.  A young man with a scythe over his  shoulder crossing the lane below the  barn looked up toward the house. Seeing the girl, he stopped, straightened  his shoulders as though be half expected her to speak and to speak himself,  then walked on' with lagging steps and  disappeared below the orchard where  the brook flows into the woods.  ������������������ Mai\y leaned her arms on the edge of  the scuttle and looked but. The hot air  from the garret blowing in gusts past'  her face was, like a twitch at^her  sleeves reminding her of the household  out  even as the "all right" faded from his  lips.  Blakesly had to be helped to the surface, for 'his work im the noisome vapor had told upon him. A few breaths  .of fresh air were all he needed, and  when he had revived sufficiently he  told how he had groped his way along  the tunnel and had found Fritz lying  among the splintered rocks. Allie  clasped in his rigid arms, her body protected by his own.  That ��������� afternoon Andy and Blakesly  found a battered silver watch, an-old  pocketUook containing $5 and a gold  nugget, all on the floor of the fifty foot  level.  "That is exactly where Fritz and Allie were lying," said Blakesly.  " 'Sh-h-li-h!" whispered the foreman,  slipping the purse with its contents and  the watch and nugget into his pocket.  "Not a word about this. Blal.esly. to  :iny living man. Leave me to deal with  the matter."  The following morning Baker was  surprised to discover that his twenty  dollar nugget was back in his trunk,  and Higgins, when he put on his best  suit to go to Fritz's funeral, found the  pocketbook with the $5 securely stowed  away in the breast of his coat.  "Blamed if I didn't lviul over everything in my trunk a dozen times looking for that chunk of gold," remarked  Baker. "If it had been a snake, it would  have bitten me."  "I went through the pockets of all  the clothes I've got hunting for that  purse." spoke up Higyins. "And to  think that we ever suspected Fritz!"  "Think nothing but good of the dead,  boj's," said Andy, with feeling. "Come  on!  The minister is1 ready."  she had left below.  ' She was the only one who had not already gone to bed. It was harvest  time. -They were cutting tho wheat In  the meadows, and all day the hum. of  the reaper had come up . from the  broad, white fields where the men  were at work. Since dawn the house  had been buzzing with lively toil, but  now the day's w.ork was ended. .  In the front room 'off the, porch' the  farmer and his wife were asleep. They  had'gone to bed immediately after supper, and while' Mary had sat in,,the  porch she heard their low voices talking over tho potato crop and the grain,  their drowsy words growing fewer,  slower, until at length they sank away  and ceased, .while yet the bobolinks  were'skimming over the meadow and  the red of the sunset lingered.  Across the gate her married brother  and a neighbor had talked politics.  Mary had heard their nasal voices alternating like the wooden balls tossed  by a juggler.' In the south chamber  just under the attic her sister-in-law  had been putting her children to bed,  the creak, creak'of the crocking chair  as it swayed' over an uneven board  dimly" audible through the silent house.  In. the attic under the roof slept her  little'brother Bob, dreamless,ttir'ed and  contented at the eud of liis long summer day. ���������"  iDown in the kitchen yard the turkeys  and chickens had gone to roost in the  apple tree's.and'the grape arbor, clucking and twittering in sleepy protest  against tho awkward ones as they settled themselves together.  In a few moments it' had grown  xery still and dark.  The girl on the house top .drew a  long breath and leaned her head back  against the edge of the rooic It was  only 8 o'clock, and the faint yellow  twilight lingered on the border of the  summer night. A new moon hung low  over the crest of the woods. The west  wind brought up the hot smell of  ripening cornfields, and a bat. darted  out of the orchard > in swooping circles against the clear night.  From her eyrie,above the treetops  the. farm buildings, the neighboring  houses, the fields and lanes, even the  wide post road, looked quite small and  cheap, like a toy village. The countryside iu its irregular checkerboard of  pasture, corn and woodland, pule yellow with the wheat stubble, somber  green where half ripened orchards  spread, marked here and there by a  cluster, of roofs, a spire that told a  hamlet in the hills, became significant only in the mystery of distance  as it mounted toward the hills and  ended at last in one vast, gray, sealike  level against the trackless sky. Mary  looked at it all as one upon whose  mind the meaning of these familiar  scenes had just begun to .dawn-these  fields, the chickens she must pluck,  the bread she must make, the ���������"raspberries she must preserve, all grouped  themselves before her in a coherent  scheme of life. From dawn till dark,  each day alike, cooking, washing, preserving, holding the babies���������the burdens of each side were hers. So far  she had carried them unthinkingly, unquestionably. It was only the lot of  every farmer's life.  Tonight she was unusually tired. To  escape a fooling of restlessness she had  determined to go to bed. It was refreshing to lie in the cool darkness. But  before she reached the top of the attic  stairs she felt the dry heat of the sun  baked roof. The great, timbered space,  dark with its age blackened beams and  scantly windowed twilight, held a  strange odor of cedar shingles, of ancient leather trunks, of musty papers.  In the solemn dusk the candle lost its  bold glare and drooped to a wavering  spark, eyed by the glimmering gray  panes of the gable windows high under  the ridge.  The two chimneys, like huge stone  giants whom she had been feeding all  day, stooped over her as tbey towered  toward the roof, reminding her of tomorrow's kitchen work.  As Mary sat on the edge of her cot,  thinking of these things, she looked up  vaguely. A star, the first in the pale  night, shone through the window upon  ner, clear, unwinking, pensive, holy.  A lock i of hair loosened by the wind  floated softly across her cheek like the'  Jriss of unseen lips. For the first time  in her life she felt the restless longing  for some good of which she was ignorant. What was it., her simple, sweet  existeuce lacked? Had she not everything that a girl" could ask���������father,  mother, food and shelter, a ' place in  the' world? What else ,'had any one?  7"he aged farmer and his wife���������those  two good people fast asleep without a  thought in their nightcaps beyond the,  potato crop: their daughter-in-law, *he  men at work in the fields, ������H those dependent on the great harvests, on the  bountiful farm; wore they not'happy,  contented.''unquestioning? Was she not  happy too? Had she anything to .complain of.'to regret, to wish for?  Suddenly out of the hush came' the  cry of the whippoorwill, that piercing,  mournful', voice of the vacant, windblown, fields, of meadows flowering unseen and far away. It thrilled her like  a pain. It stabbed her through' and  through and cut her to the heart with  its questioning, solitary call, hidden in  the twilight of the.woods.    ,  She had heard it so often, year after  year, like the robin and the lark. Never nad it sounded so lonely, so friend-  'less and' apart. A strange longing  swelled up in 'her breast; tears filled  her eyes., The years of, her life,, with  'jtheir- simple: tasks, -"their ambitions,  hopes and dreams, came to her like  some .vast tidal wave upon a sunny  shore, withdrawing iu a long resovi'nd-  , ing sigh at the .absence of some unknown ojoy. She stared through the  warm darkness toward the edge of the  woods outlined against the evening as  though one should try to read the-soul  of a silhouette. Then she dropped her  face in her hands' for a single minute.  At 0' o'clock' in the morning Mary  was in tlie garden picking the vegetar  blesfor dinner. The sunshiny, dew  fresh day,t the beans and cabbages, in  their prim symmetry,' the tall'scarlet  hollyhocks nodding against the fence,  ' made the experience of the night before very remote and visionary.  ��������� As Mary reached the end of tne row  of peas she'pushed back her sunbonnet  and looked up; then her song stopped  and she knelt silently.  A young man was standing on the  other side^ of the garden wall looking  at her. He bliished as he met her  steady, smiling, gaze. "Picking peas?"  he asked. "You've got a lot, haven't  .you?"        ' '  "Yes, indeed; plenty this year. Have  you?"        .        r     [        "     ���������  "All wTe can eat and more too. Getting old, though. ' How are these?" He  crossed the wall and stood beside her.  "Yours are pretty tender yet." He tore  off another pod.- "Shan't I help you?  Two' can work better than one.-"  "Oh, thank you; you needn't bother."  Yet she smiled at him.  ^  "Oh, I like to do this.   I'll take the  inside of the row."  "It's ��������� very kind of you," she an-"  swercd, looking up .at him sweetly.  'How brown and strong and sinewy  he had grown since he had begun to  work in the harvest fields. She had not  seen hirm-for a long while, not since  they were in school together. She was  looking at him again .when he glanced  up and caught her eyes. This time  they both blushed. They said nothing  for some time. Mary picked busily,  and the boy whistled half to himself.  They were beside each other, with  nothing between them but the slender  trellis of pea vines, enough to give the  boy courage to say, "Did you hear the  whippoorwill last night?" *  Mary felt a flash tSat made her  nerves tingle.  "Oh, did you, to������?" she exclaimed,  then, stopped, abashed at her' own  eagerness. How eould , Alvy understand the confession she had made to  a whippoorwill just because it was unseen? "Where was it?" she asked,  with all ��������� the carelessness she could  summon. ,   .  "Down in the wood lot about half  past 8. I was coming home 'cross lots  back of your barn; been up at the other farm all day."  They were picking slowly now. How  pretty Mary was with her braided yellow hair, her rose pink ears, her  smooth lidded, down drooping eyes!  The ruffle of her apron, with its crisp  curves, seemed meant to hedge her  cheeks from kisses.  Alvy felt his heart throb dizzily. So  many words and thoughts went round  and round In .'his head that he could  not say one. And there was the screen  of brush and vines between them.  The delicate film of green was strong  as a prison grille through which the  serene face of the girl glowed upon  him. Somehow their hands met upon  the same pods. Mary's trembled, then  lay still'in his.  "I  saw you up on the roof,"  whispered the boy.    "You  were listening,  weren't you?"  Mary nodded.  "Do   you���������do   you   like   to   hear   it,  Mary? Do you like the whippoorwill?"  Mary's lip trembled.    "I don't know.  I guess so."  "Because.he���������he loves you, Mary."  "Mary, Mary, where are you?"  The two in the garden sprang up as  the shrill voice called from the kitchen.  As the boy leaped over the fence into  his   own   orchard   Mary   looked   after  him.    From the trees among which he  disappeared came clear, low and sweet  the call of the whippoorwill.

Are-  we quite sure that the idols in our literary, pantheon   are -arrayed  in  their,  due order of precedence?   The rules of  precedence change, and who shall assert that those prevalent at any given  time are the final ones?    But,  above-  all, are we quite certain that there may  not be a notable work of genius lying  unnoticed    and    unknown    amid   the  wrecks of  the river  of.- time,, waiting  only for some lucky accident that shall  reveal it in all its beauty to an astonished world?  Such accidents with such results have  been frequent in the history of the  past. Indeed such accidents have preserved or have revealed to the world  no insignificant proportion of its now  acknowledged masterpieces.  .The hooks of the Bible themselves  have experienced the narrowest escapes from what might have resulted  in their total loss. The most notable  example Is that of Deuteronomy, which  disappeared from the Jewish world for  over a century. The story of - its' rediscovery by the high priest Hezekiah  during the reign of good,-King Josiah  is set forth in the Old Testament.  Shakespeare 'was practically forgotten in the days when Addison wrote,  his "Account of the Greatest English  Poets," with never a mention of the  name of the very greatest, yet it was  shortly afterward that Shakespeare  was resuscitated.  Fitzgerald's "Omar Khayyam" and  Blackmore's "L,orna Doone" dropped  stillborn from the press and later won  a sudden popularity by accident.���������William S. Walsh in Ei;a Magazine.

Many of tire leading people in English sociotyx regarded Thomas Carlyle  with a feeling almost akin to reverent  delight when he chb.se to behave like  an ignorant boor in their drawing  rooms, even taking his seat, it'is. said,  unbidden in the presence of the queen.  This generation, however, has little patience with such eccentricities.  It was an English bishop who, when  the historian Freeman had worn out  his patience with his rudeness, introduced him to a waiting audience as  "the distinguished scholar that so admirably describes and illustrates the  savagery of our ancestors."

We  derive   from  the \ blood'"  life,  power,'beauty, and.  reason, as the doctors have been saying from  time  immemorial.   A  healthy   body,     a fresh  appearance,  and  generally all the-abilities we possess  depend  on, that source of life.   It is,  therefore,   the duty  of every sensible  man   to    keep the blood as pure and  normal   as   possible.       Nature,, in  its  infinite wisdom, has given us a thermometer     indicating the state >of the  blood.     which appeals  to  our reason  by    giving    notice     of its  impurity.  Small    eruptions    of     the    skin,     to  whicli'-we pay scarcely any attention,  headache,  ringing- noises in  the ears,  lassitude,  sleeplessness:,   are generally  a  sign  that  the  blood   is  not in  the'  normal state,  but is filled with noxious substances.    These symptoms deserve our full attention.    If more attention were paid to those symptoms  and steps taken to remove them, then  many  illnesses  from  which  we  suffer  would become unknown,   and the human body would become stronger and  healthier  '        Attention,        therefore,  should    be   paid    to     those warning  signs,  and  the  blood  can be  purified  xjmd.     poisonous     substances   removed  from    it   by     the  use' of Dr.  August  Koenig's Hamburg Drops,   discovered  more than 60 years ago.

The following* special London  cable appears in a late number of  the Toronto Globe. It .will be seen  that the present attitude of the Imperial Government on the Mongol-  ian immigration question is that it  is'a matter to be settled by the self-  governing Colonies, and disproves  the statement of the Victoria Times.  that the Imperial Government asked for the disallowance of British  Columbia  anti-Mongalian  legislation   because   it    was   considered  -inimical Co Imperial policy,     rhe  Laurier Government must be  held  responsible  for   the   disallowance  t*Mr Chamberlain's success in pro-.  ���������curW  the withdrawal of  Natal's  War claims is followed by'an ar:  rangement for a large contribution  to the expenses of the South African  campaign from the Transvaal by a  loan,based on'an Impe.ial guarantee      The  Rand .financiers would  have agreed t.o even a greater levy  upon the mining inductry if unrestricted license for the employment  of'Chinese labor could have been  obtained, but Mr;Chamberlain has  recognised   the   temporary   obligations of the Imperial Government  as  a   trustee  for   the new colony,  which" will   ultimately  decide the  labor question" on it's own account  when luilv armed  with the power,  of self government.   uMr Chamberlain   has; shown  himself equal to,  every emergency in" South   Africa,  "'hut, his most difficult'task-awaits  him in Cape Colony."  THE PREMIER'S MANIFESTO.  previous to his departure for Ot-  Ottawa,  Premier  Prior issued  an  address to the electors of We6t Yale,  which contains a very full expression   of  the policy of the Government.    We give a short summary.  The  Premier  says  he is  satisfied  that " what the country wants is  not  a  general election and consequent political turmoil, but quietude, and a chance for business conditions.     The political unrest  lor  the past four or five years has not  tended to promote the interests and  credit of this country abroad, and  , it   would   be   most   injurious    to  plunge the Province  into another  political  fight,,  with  no justifiable  hopes of a settled state of affairs as  the outcome.     The fact is pointed  out  that  both   the great  political  parties have equal representation in  the Cabinet, thus securing a period  of peace during which the country  would have an opportunity to settle down to business of a practical  nature.    The Government has de  terest of the rest of the'Dominion.  The're-adjustment of-our financial  arrangements witli the Dominion  is absolutely neces^ry. A measure  will be introduced at the next sitting of the Legislature to adjust the  inequalities complained of in the  taxing, of mining claims, ,  At railway meeting last night,  which was largely attended, resolutions were passed asking Federal  Government to grant subsidies to  Cape Scott Railway, and one to be  forwarded to Mayor McCandless of  Victoria, expressing appreciation of  his action and of railway extension  north.

The expenditures for tbe fiscal year ending June 30th, 1902, have been kept  well within the appropriations, and  by the end of June, 1903, will, it is  hoped,  be balanced  by actual receipts, placing the Province for the  first time for many years in   the  p bition of having no deficit to   be  provided for.    It is the intention to  cut off every item not indispensible  in the interests of the public service.  The Premier  touches on  the  relations which exist between lhe Province and the Dominion, which he  considers very one sided,  and   in-  8 ancles the  manner in  which the  P ovince is sacrificed in the matter  of Oriental immigration in the in-  Vancouver, Feb. 9���������Complete returns give MirPherson 80 majority.

Victoria, Feb. 9.���������Mr Dunsmuir  waited on this afternoon by deputation respecting proposal for railway toNorthern Vancouver I-dand.  It is understood he is ready to offer  them right, of way through his land  He favours a continuation of present E. and N.'line, and would assist  in every way company building it.  Nanaimo, Feb. 9���������Since the American Co, took over the New Vancouver Coal Co. rumours of all sorts  regarding possible trouble between  the new company and its employees  have filled the air. The appointment  of Mr Wall and his immediate resignation indicated that things were  not   running  smoothly.     Various  stories of a somewhat domineering  manner in   which   the   American  officials   are   conducting   business  with   the   men   have   been   going  around.    Then came the report that  the   Chinese employed   had   their  wages reduced from $1.25 a day to  90cts., with the additional  report  that they had struck en masse.   Now  comes a dispute which threatens to  develop  into serious demensions, it ,  having arisen over the use of safety  lamps and tbe cancellations of the  25cts. a day allowance made by the  N.V.C. Co.   to  men  compelled  to  work by safety light. The men have  quit work on this account.     Then  further trouble has arisen in regard  to   working the  lower   seam   over  which a dispute arose. This and  other matters will be dealt,wiilv-at  a mass meeting of the .Miners' Union Wednesday. ,'Rumored that, this  meeting will practically decide  whether the men will stay <>n or not.  ,.It is also freely alleged that preparations are being made that the  Western Fuel Co. will operate a  company store . for the Company  men. The confirmation of this  statement is lacking.  Bioemfontein. Feb. 8���������The conference here today between secretary  Chamberlain and forty Boers of-the  extreme party including C. Dewett,  when Mr Ch .mberlain rebuked the  delegation for presenting him with,  an address which he regarded as an  insult in as much as it impugned*  good faith of'himself and the Government has further widened1 the  breach between Boer factions.  Dewett, who spoke later, prefaced  his statement with saying that his  remarks would come like niustard  'after meat, and concluded with asserting that no co-operation of  Boers was possible as long as Botha  and he 'represented the peopLe.  Country would not be misled by  them and he would not rest till he  caused apolitical rebellion.  Pocket Knives, Table Knives and Forks  Spoons of ail kinds,' Scissors,.
