From a disinterested, outsider, we  learn, however, that the .game was  one in which our boys have nothing to feel, ashamed of or discouraged over, as it is openly asserted  that the referee acted in a shamelessly partial and .partisan manner  throughout the game. :. ,  ��������� Upon enquiry,.we find this idea  shared by the players, and, from  hints dropped' on. the- field, the  Thistles themselves were aware  that such was the case, and will no  doubt be fair' minded enough to  admit this' if questioned. The  Athletics have nothing but a good  <" word tor the Thistles themselves,  ('.but we consider they were to blame  and laying themselves open to censure in allowing such a referee to .  continue; in his unprincipled tactics  when it became evident, early in  the game, that .he had made up his  mind to see nothing.to the advantage of the visiting team. We con:  sider they should not have chosen  him, in the' first instance, when they  knew that this is not the first time  he has made himself notorious by  his unsportsmanlike conduct as a  football referee. When the ThistUs  visited this place, they were beaten,"  and we defy anyone to prove that  any but fair dealing was accorded  them by team   or   referee.    Fridav  ' week, a similar game will be played  0  here.    A fair   referee will   look to  the interests of all  and   a   blazing  good licking awaits the   Thistles in  the fairest and   manliest' fashion.  ,Nanaimo has long had   the 3'repu.  tation of being a town.of sport, and'  fair British play.

I  fe  .    1  fr.i- :���������'������������������  w^-.-'-.vv--'.- V-  '���������'������������������'���������'? /^���������Vi'-Vx'*  There were 20 of us making,up tbe'  I. arty at an English country bouse for  the shooting season, and it so happened that while all were of course well  known to host  and  hostess  seven or  eight were strangers to each other until" introduced at the house.'  1 do not  think-there were, over three  or  four  who even knew.little  Mrs.   Hope  by  name   or  could  toll   anything  of   her  ' past.    Nor did  a great deal  leak out  ��������� about her father after she  had' been  -generally introduced and had come to  be a favorite with both men and women.    She was  petite  and  blond.    She  had a baby face and big blue eyes, and  your first impression of her was that  she was a .child, and a very innocent  chikl atctuat. , In the billiard room it  was whispered that she was a distant  relative of Colonel Saunders, our.host,  and that she had married a scamp and  . been so ill used that a divorce had been  sought  for.    It was  generally agreed  that  it  must  have  all been  the  bus-  baud's'fault  and  that the  man   who  would  ill treat such   a light  hearted,  baby  faced  wife  deserved- something  beyond   contempt.    She  was  by   long  odds the best  looking woman  among  the eight or teiv but as she .was not  given to flirtation'"ami:as. she looked  pretty without artificial means-she was  forgiven for.her handsome face and became a general favorite.        ,     , r  The man who leaves business for a  week' or  two   for   an   outing   seldom  takes along jewelry or money of any  account,  but  nine  women  out of ten  must carry  their1 diamonds -wherever  they go.  .There was a brave display of  gems at Rose Hill with all except little  Mrs. Hope.    She had two or three finger rings arid a bracelet or two and  made a poor showing compared to the  rest    This was corroborative evidence  thafshe was none too well fixed financially," but   she   did   not display   the  slightest feeling of envy, and no hints  were thrown out to hurt her feelings.  -  " A country house full of wealthy guests  is a bonanza for a nervy thief, and the  colonel warned the ladies from the outset to be careful of their jewelry-   All  of them agreed to act upon the advice  and  then,   womanlike,   carelessly   left  every ornament lying about.    On the  fourth day of the party a lady named  White    missed  three   valuable   rings  which hac^ been left lying on a table in  'her  room.    They   had  been  taken   m  broad-daylight while the ladies  were  on the lawn  and while the maid was  temporarily absent from tho room.    It  was impossible that any outsider could  have got into the house, and it seemed  impossible to  trace  the  theft  to  any  particular  servant.     Counting   maids,  valets   and   the   house   retinue,   there  were about 20 people in the house aside  from the guests.  Mrs. White's loss was  kept a secret for several days from all  but host and hostess, but the colonels  quiet  detective  work  brought  no  reward. ���������'.'  The second loss was more serious.   A  Mrs.  Willmere left her jewelry  lying  about after dinner and at bedtime discovered that she had been.robbed of  every single article.   The value was at  least ������3,000, and as she and her husband   were  both  excitable people the  loss could not be kept;quict.    Between  the fmish of dinner and  bedtime we  were  scattered  about  the  house  and  'lawn, with the servants moving to and  fro. and no stranger could have entered  >    the   house   without   being, seen.    The  bedroom window was up. but no ladder had been used.    It seemed to be  plain enough that some servant had secured the jewelry, and one by one the  entire lot were summoned before the  colonel's court of inquiry and intcrro-  n'lted     There  wasn't  one  without  a  *ood   character,   nor   could   suspicion  Justly attach to any one.    It was long  after midnight before we got through,  and  next morning the  sergeant from  the police station was called over.   He  couldn't suspect one of the guests, and  he could find no grounds for suspecting  one of the servants, and he got out of it  bv looking wise and saying tbat Mrs.  Willmere had probably mislaid her ornaments.    Unfortunately   for  her she  was rather absentminded. aud we presently came to accept tlie theory, though  she searched her rooms over and over  again without discovery.  The losses did not break up the party, as might have been the case.   The  '   - ������-��������� iV^.'-r      ,'V,  ���������-���������v,w.'-*���������'���������'    ,*>..-  .   ���������"'. ���������������������������>������������������--:.^cw--.. rs'^ *  }5"'^V-.' :ys'^.y::^$%.  colonel   and   Mrs.   Willmere   came  to  some mutual -understanding.,   I  think  the detective advised them to call it a  "mislay" and thereby put the thief off  his guard.    Colonel  Saunders insisted  that ev'erv jewel of value be locked up  in the family safe, and when this had  been done every guest became a Sherlock' Holmes..    There  were 20   guests  and 20 theories.    Everything from an  owl to tho ?table boy was under, suspicion.     The '.'detective's   theory,   as   he  gave it to the colonel, privately,  was  that a smart thief disguised as a lady's  maid or an upper servant had entered  the house arid committed both robber- (  ies.������   Of all the theories this was the j  most  absurd,   but  of course the  man  felt bound to  make a move of some  sort.    Tlie jewelry had been locked up  for four days', and things had quieted  down, when the colonel started to produce it in honor of a government ofli-  cial who was to arrive],that evening.   I  say he started to, because he no sooner  attempted to unlock the safe than he  'discovered   that   the , bolts   had   been  phot.    As he pulled the door open he  uttered" a groan, and the sight of his  haggard   face   was   evidence   enough  that something was wrong.    The safe  had been opened by'means of a key,  but had not been locked again.    Every  article of jewelry  was gone, and the  value of the.' lot was not a cent under  ������10,000.  In seeking to render his'guests  safe, the colonel had helped'to despoil  them.     It  was   impossible fo   say   at  what date the robbery had happened,  and t������hc only thing to do was to telegraph' up to  London  for a- detective.  While waiting-his arrival, no-servant  was allowed- off the grounds,  and of  course no guest could well leave while  under' fire.    It was ������a painful position  for every 'one, and the detective rather  added to it r when he got to work.    As  soon as he was in possession of all the  facts he said to the colonel:  "These robberies were committed by  one of your guests.   They must all as-,  semble'in the drawing room and1 submit to have their rooms searched."  Rather than subject them to such an  'indignity the cqjonel offered to pay the  full loss out of his own pocket.1 but this  no one would hear to. , All were .willing  for the search to go on, and host, hostess  and  detective   made  it. , Nothing  was found.   The detective clung to. his  theory, however, and took another look  at the rooms and was given the. names  of their occupants.    Tbere were three  rooms which communicated,' and those  three were occupied by the colonel, his  wife and little Mrs. Hope.    The door  -between the'rooms of the colonel and  AfTS?;Hope was bolted on her side aud.  badr-been for years.   This door caught  the eye of the detective, and after an  examination of the bolt he said:     ���������  "This bolt .has been worked within  three or four .days, as any locksmith  will tell you, and this door has also  been opened." .  "Do you know what you are saying/  sternly demanded the colonel.  "I do, sir. You carry "the key of the  safe in your pocket. To get that key  some one has entered your room by  this door at night."  "But Mrs- Hope's effects have been  searched along with the rest."  "Her effects���������yes. She has the jewelry on her person.  Let your wife search  her." ���������  ���������The colonel was furious and his wife  indignant. They would answer for little Mrs. Hope as for themselves.  "I can do no moi-c," answered the. detective. "One of your guests is the  robber, and it is the guest occupying  this room. If you will-call her up here,  I believe I can break her down in ten  minutes."  After long hesitation little,Mrs. Hope  was called up. She came smilingly,  and "no pair of eyes ever revealed  greater innocence. A layman would  have sooner suspected a toddling babe.  "Now, then," began the detective,  "you are the robber. You took Mrs.  White's jewelry, and you robbed the |  colonel's safe. You got the key from  his trousers by opening this dooiv You  have the jcwelrj- on."your person."  For the space of 80 seconds the baby  faced woman regarded him 'withWonder, indignation, fear and anguish.  Then she gasped for breath and sank  down in her tracks.  "Search her," said the detective as he  left the room. Ten minutes later he  was called in. The little woman lay  weeping on the sofa, and the missing  jewolrv was spread out on the table.  /'God help us!" said the colonel as he  looked from the ofiicer to the recovered  treasure and back.  -We must help ourselves," replied  the man as he looked at the. woman  with pity in his eyes. "Mrs. Saunders your maid must go. You must  fix the price with her. She must get  away as soon as possible, and the plunder must be found in her room later on.  She will get safe away."  Three hours later the jewelry was  "found" in the maid's room, and everybody else was cleared of suspicion and  made happy. The maid had been gone  two hours, and the detective doubted  whether she could be found in big London, though of course he would use every effort. LittleMMrs: Hope was ill for  a day or two under the nervous excitement and so bad a good excuse for  leaving Rose Hill. So far as I know-  not ione of the guests suspected her.  Indeed as the maid had left a written  confession before she bolted how could  any one else be suspected? This being  the case, you may wonder how I got  hold of the inside facts in the case.  Well that's a matter of no concern as  long as I have given you the full-particulars. Perhaps the colonel trusted  me further than he did the others. As  for little Mrs. Hope, it was want of  monev probably -that induced her to  turn robber, but I have" always tried to  make myself believe that she couldn't  nave realized what she was doing.  Why tlie  nSsliop  Ditl Not Scold.  -   "A little boy in the, neighborhood of  Bishop   Brooks'   home   in   Boston, was  3ne   day   mischievously   ringing   doorbells   and   running   away , before   the  doors were opened." says a, writer in  The Ladies'  Home Journal.    "In pursuit of. this amusement he rah up the  steps of the Bishop's residence, and the  bishop,   happening  to   be ' in, the  hall  ready to go out. opened tlie door quickly,  before'the  boy  had  turned to descend the steps.   The child was so startled by the sudden appearance of the  good man, who had a kindly smile for  all children, that he ejaculated: 'Why,  Phi'ps Brooks!    Do you live here"''  In  spite of  the misdemeanor  the  bishop  could not find it in  his heart to scold  the little fellow.   He also had been a  boy."  THE   LOVE  SIGN   OF  THE  ROSE.

Some years ago as tho result of this  exposure I was afflicted with kidney  trouble, and although I spent,   much,  money in various remedies I did not  find a cure until I was persuaded to  try Dr."Williams'  Pink Pills.,- In the  autumn of 1898 the trouble began 'to  assume an aggravated form.-'   .1 suffered from   most severe pains  in the  back,   and i a  feeling'   of    drowsiness  and yet so severe was the pain that  many a .night I scarcely , closed my  eyes.

Broadtail is made up in  a variety of styles, of course, but one  of the pretty novelties is a short bolero  coat which fits the'figure rather closely and curves up in the back to show  one of the wide empire belts of, panne ���������  velvet in either white or black. Gold  braid and oriental embroidery are both  used in the finish. In fact, the fur is  treated exactly as if it were cloth.  The art of tailoring in furs has reached a high state, of' perfection among  first class furriers, and whatever your  fur may he your coat clings to your  figure as If it were cloth and with quite  as  shapely   lines:     So  says   the   New  BOLBBO IN BROADTAU*  are concerned. The one feature of  foHhlon lu furs which Is at all lasting  In thes������ days' is the fur Itself, which remain* in favor for many years. You  aro. obliged'to change the form of it  from year to year or count yourself  quite out of Htyle. but you can at least  derive wome satisfaction from the fact  i������iat the animal Itself has not gone out  ������������r fushiou.

"And what if the world knew the full  oxfent of yours?" asked the other, his  white lips trembling with a passion he  could no longer, suppress'. "I could tell  something."

"There was a timej" said a paint.manufacturer, "when every farmer painted  his baia red. The paint used was called  Venetian red aud was, made of oxide of-  iron instead of white lead and zinc. Tt  cost about half as much as lead'paint  and'stood the weather well.' The farmer  bought this paint dry and mixed it with  oil himself aud put it on himself. Now  I suppose about one-third ,of' the coun-'  try's barns are painted' red and about  "two-thirds in other colors, with the "pro-,  portion of red 'barns still r decreasing.  This change is due somewhat to fashion ,  "and more' to the wide introduction of  nik^ed paints ready tor use, .  "Nowadays prepared paints are put up'(  in   simply, scores  of  colors' and   shades,'  and mauy of them are manufactured- and  sold as cheaply as the old'Venetian'red ���������  was.    In tlie old days if the farmer wanted to paint any color but, red he had to  mix  his' own colors..   He  couldn't get a  painter  to come  from  town  to "mix  the  "colors unless he'could, have also the job  of doing the painting.

It   might   be' that  some city man who had bought an :aban- ���������  doned.farm would paint the old barns in  modem style.    Thou the neighbors would  say, "I don'n know' bow much-Mr. City-  mair  knows  about   farming,   but he  cer- '  taiuly knows how to paint a.barn.' "And  the   people   thereabouts   would   be   likciy  to paint their barns more or less.like his.  ,  Thus you might find districts where the  barns would run much alike.,  "In. modern barn paintiug the body is  of ono color and the trim of another.

More   than   20' years  "      have elapsed   since,  tlie death  of   No rah  S., and it  is not now  possible to obtain  many of'the details which one would like  to have.    But even .in its imperfect state  .    ������the hix-tory seems to me,to present pecul-  ; ',   . iarities which makeit remarkable, ,1-will  :    , giye it in two parts... This first part contains 'information' supplied' by  Miss X.,  ' -     who acted-as Norah's governess and at a  later period as her companion.   This lady  ''"    is still   alive,  and "her  wish  to  have  all  names   suppressed    must   be   respected.  . The  information   is  supplemented   by   a  - few entries in  the notebook of.'a .doctor  who at'one time attended Norah." -  Norah's   parents   died   when   she   was  still a baby .''and unfortunately their family history cannot be traced.    Her'father  .     was tin  English artist; the  mother was"  ' French and. much younger, than-her husband.    They lived, abroad���������at'Rome for  the greater  part  of  the  year.     It' was  >  there that they died,  within a few days  of  one   another,   of   malignant   malarial  fever.     Norah, was  brought  to  England  .    ' and 'adopted   by  a  childless  couple���������her"  'father's brother and his wife.  The   adoptive' father   has   practically  nothing to do with this story.    He seems  - to have been a commonplace little mau;  . "ime'rgetic in his profession���������he^ was a so^  licitor���������arid. ,complet.������jyv.nn.ler the" dominion of'his wife'at, home.    Mrs. SI was a  woman   of  strong  and." narrow  religious  "convictions and of a kindly nature.   Both  -   were devoted to the child-. ���������.They; lived'in'  a'suburb of a-north country manufacturing town,.where,Mr. S. had his practice.  Up to the-age of 8 Norah received a certain amonnt of desultory teaching from  Mw, S.    Then a regular governess was  engaged.  MissX. was at that time a teacher of  more enthusiasm than judgment. Norah  was very fond of her: slie was,a child of  precocious intelligence: she was eager to  learn. Miss X. was proud of her pupil  and pushed' her on. The/child worked  six hours a day as a rule, sometimes'more,  and she really did work., At that time  unreasoning.-education was just coming  into fashion.' One is not surprised to find'  ��������� that shortly after Norah's ninth birthday  the Doctor had .'to be called in.   .  He was an old gentleman. and-hVkcpt  a   kind   of  rough  notebook   in   which   he  recorded things of medical and other interest.    He speaks of Norah as a, pretty  little gypsy.    He found that she"slept ill,  was very nervous and had a poor and capricious appetite. , She was amende,  hut  he bled  her all  the same.     For the  rest,  his treatment seems to a layman to have  been -sensible enough.     He  gave  her  ft  tonic,  which  probably  did  her no harm.  Ho  regulated   her  diet.     He   absolutely  forbade   all   lessons   for  the   next   three  months.     He .sent her to the seaside and  gave  instructions  that osHe  "rfls to .play  with other children.    He noticed, by the  way���������of   course .before   the   days   when  ' such things became a special study���������that  Norah  frowned -and  twisted  her face if  she  were, asked  a'question  that   it   was  8 difficult or unpleasant for her to answer.  The child  went  to  r.n.vostnfr  wit'i   her  adoptive   mother   and   M is-s   X.     Mr.   S  v,-.'is detained  by  his business.    The doe-  tor bad given Miss ,X. ;tbe rough side of  his tongue".     In .his ������������������ notebook -he speaks  of'her as "the Hired assassin."    She was  duly   penitent.     But   the  old   gentleman  recognised   that  she  had   made her  mistake   through   ignorance   and   that   the  adoptive   mother   had   shared   the   ignorance  and  encouraged   the .overpressure.  He; saw,   too.   that   the   child   was   very  fond of her and that it would be bad for  the child  to part .them  at this juncture.  Miss X. in her distress had  resigned her  post, but the doctor would not permit her  to go.    He told her bluntly that she had  -done  enough . Harm   without   that.     She  was now  as eager to amuse  Norah  and  nurse her back to health as she bad  formerly   been   to  turn   her  into  an   infant  prodigy.    The child got rapidly better.   c  On the afternoon of Sept. 2S.  1804-  the date is fixed by a letter in Miss X.'s  possession���������Norah  went -put  to  play  on  the    beach    with    some    young   friends  whose   acquaintance   she   had    recently  made.     At  teatime,  as  she  did   not   return, Miss X. went out to look for hpr.  She found her alone under the cliff fast  asleep.    She woke her.  "Why, Norah, you've been asleep!"  she said.  The child looked surprised. "I'm not  Norah," she said. "Norah's gone away.  I'm Janet."  Miss X. at first thought this was some  childish joke. "And who's Janet?" she  asked.  "Norah's twin sister.   Didn't you know?  She's told me all about you and Mrs. S."  So far J3s is known Norah's parents had  no other child. It is worth .noting, too.  that the normal Norah never spoke of  "Mrs. S." She always called her "mother."  Miss X. began to get a little nervous,  but she still tried to get the child to confess that this was some silly Joke. It  was useless. The child persisted that  she was Janet. She was annoyed at having it questioned and asked Miss X. not  to tease her:  She was taken home, and there Mrs. S.  clung to the theory, tbat it was, some-  piece of naughtiness or silliness on Norah's part, though she owned tbat it was  ��������� iii'tie out,of kee'ping with Norah's usual  behavior.   The child was cross examined,'  !"-'H"d. frightened, but all through she  stuck to her statement that she was not  Norah, but Janet. Mrs.' S. brought out  a new picture book, and she said she-  would give it to her if she, would write  her .'proper name -in it.  "I will write Norah's name if you rlike,  but 1' am not, Norah. She has ' gone  away," ,  1 She picked up a pencil and wrote the  name   quickly   and,   without   Hesitation,  Then the two women, knew that some-  tiling was wrong, for the name was written in looking glass writing���������writing that  mustbe held to a mirror to be read.   After   that,   at  Miss  X.'s  suggestion,   they  dropped the question of identity and talked to her about other things.'   She seemed  perfectly   reasonable,   but1 less   quick   to  understand   things   than   Norah   usually  "was.    It was noticed that, unlike Norah  in   her  normal   condition,   she   was - left  handed.     Miss' X.   thinks ��������� there   were  some  other  slight differences   from   tlie  . normal Norah���������in the appearance of the  eyes, the tone'of the voice and the choice  of words.   , But as to these she cr.anot  speak very precisely after this lapse of  ' time. ' ',. ' ,        '   ,  ,,  - The child slept until long after her usu-  fal hour next morning. When she woke,  she, hail, no knowledge of anything that  'had happened'1,since she went to sleep' on  ���������the beach. She was completely restored  to her normal condition. Mrs.'.S. had  been in a state of great distress. It- was  .not uncommon at "that period for people  to (regard phthisis as romantic and any  rmental derangement as disgraceful. Certainly Mrs. S. took the latter view." She  was rejoiced to find the child restored to  herself, and she bound Miss X. 'to.- say  nothing about the incident to anybody,  "lest people should bring' it up against  Her afterward."- She considered that Norah had been too much in the? -sun and  that this Had "made her silly" for a time.  Considering that the disappearance of  tlie symptoms meant the disappearance  of,the disease, she did not call in a doctor.      , '  Norah apparently completely regained  her���������health. 'She did not become an  infant  prodigy.    At the age" of 14, when  Miss "X. left her and she was placed in  the   hands   of  foreign' governesses,   she  seems to ,'have been a fairly normal girl,  a little emotional  perhaps, but'with  no  tendencies'to melancholy, fondl?of sport,  eager to see the world".  . Eight years afterward Miss X;rtook the  . post of companion to-Norah.   During the  intervarshe had once, more ^become an orphan, and she had'������inherited Mr.iS.'s for-  , tune, which was not immense,  but  was  much greater than it had been supposed  he-would-leave behind him." It.gave Norah an income of about ������1,700 a year.  She   came   to   London,   where   she   Had  many fr?ends.    Some of these were anxious to have her live with them, but she  was    fond    of   her   independence.    She  wrote to Miss X.. with whom' she had  kept up a desultory correspondence, and  an arrangement was soon made between  -them.    They .lived^together:in a comfortable   house   in   Hampstead.' .Here   also  Miss  X.  noticed   nothing  that  could  be  called abnormal about Norah.    She was  bright   and   energetic. , fond   of   pleasure  and particularly fond of getting new experiences. ������������������  Norah was at this time engaged to be  married .to a distinguished orientalist aud  traveler. ,a mau about ten years older  than herself, lo whom she was devoted.  It was arranged that after the marriage  Miss X. was to act as her housekeeper.  Three days before the marriage was to  have taken place Norah committed suicide, poisoning herself with oxalic acid.  It is not a good suicide poison, because  the antidote is to be found ready at hand  in most houses. But Norah was not discovered: she took the poison in a diluted  form and died in her sleep.  No motive of any kind could be found  for the act at the time, and the usual  verdict was returned.  By ber will she left to Miss X. an annuity and all her books and papers.  Among the latter was a bundle of penny  exercise books tied up with siring and  marked" "Not to be read until a year after my death." Rightly or wrongly. Miss  X. made no mention .of, these at the inquest. It is from them that the brief  second part of Norah's history is here  written. , I have not been permitted to'  read the whole of these books as yet.  Much'of yhat I have read I, am not permitted to repeat here, and of verbatim  quotation I can give very little.  These books are a revelation of the  tragedy of Norah's life. They are concerned principally with her second personality. Janet, and are not consecutive,  long lapses occurring between the dates  of the different books. ������  There is no reference to,the Lowestoft  incident in them. The first book is dated  when Norah was 15 years old. The first  line begins: "I was Janet in my sleep  last night. It is no good to pray any  more. One day she will come when I am  awake, and everybody will know, and  they will shut me up somewhere and say  that I am mad."  That note of. horror is repeated all  through the books. She makes miserable little pathetic tests of her sanity and  can find nothing wrong . but that one  thing���������that she feels that she may at any  time lose her personality, that Ja*net must  come back. She feels it a disgrace that  she is not like other people; she longs for  help and sympathy, yet not for worlds  would she speak of Her trouble to a single soul.  She appears to have some means, never  indicated, of communicating with this  mysterious twin sister. She speaks of  telling   Her   things   and   of   exacting   a  promise' from Her that she will never  come back except when Norah is alone at  night. Then we hear no more of these  conversations, which are reported in a  most matter of fact ,way. and another  horror springs up. Janet means to ruin  her. She will never speak, but Norah  knows.     ���������,  After that comes a period of about a  year, during which there are no notes al  all.. This period coincides with her resi'  dence in London and .ncludes the few  .months of her engagement. Indeed ii  may be doubted if Norah ever wrote it-  the book again, for the next entry, which  is'the last, is-written in the looking glasf  hand. I held'it to a mirror and,read:  , "I have come back for a little while,  but tomorrow'I shall come ,back to stay.  I shall take him away from you. Sister  ,Norah. It is I that he will marry. ' J(  wonder what you thought. For a lon������  time"��������� ' .     '  Therethe sentence breaks off abruptly.  It bears the date of the day on which  Norah committed suicide.  As a case of double personality it is explicable-doubtless on the theory of absolute somnambulism, but it suggests other  questions less easy to answer. A clove*  novelist might'be able to make something,  of'it, filling in the lacunae.

Some governments, make use of numerals for their ciphered communications with their agents abroad, others  a mixture of numerals aud words, aud  ' yet others exclusively words. Of course,,  the only problem that needs solution  ��������� in dispatches of this kind is to ascertain the "key number or "key word.  When that is accomplished, the remainder, is easy, though generally very  tedious. Indeed it is difficult to conceive  of a more tiresome, head splitting piece  of work than either to cipher or decipher a dispatch of some 1,500 or 2,000  words. The writer talks from sad and  weary experience. -,>   .  '  Some governments change13 the. key  , word or key numerals, with each dispatch, according to a settled' arrangement. Others,, again, change it every  month. Sometimes it is placed at the  beginning of the dispatch, at other  times at the end.- To the uninitiated a  dispatch of this kind will appear in the  . nature of a Chinese puzzle, but to au  expert cryptographer the deciphering  of a government code dispatch is mere  child's play..   ,  Occasionally the dispatch will appear  a mere jumble of consonants without  any meaning, while at other times it  will be so ciphered as to contain sensible and plausible sentences, the meaning of which appears ou the surface.  It was a code of this kind that was  used by the Spanish secret-agents in  this, country during the war with  Spain, and the clever staff of ..secret  service men employed by the United  States government were in a very  short time possessed of a key to the  cipher in cjuestion.-  ' Ml Sone .Men it I  ��������� t  ^ The Story of a Man's Sacrifice. t  ��������� By Elisabeth Voge.

"I am supposed to take father's place  here, but 1 have perfect confidence in  you, Bartlett, and I shall take it as a  favor if you will forget to remind me  of the responsibilities of the situation."  Again his boyish laugh rang out, and  the others laughed in sympathy.  He Avas unmistakably a good deal of  a dandy.
