I understand the flagship will  not be   in  Cu.nox any nioie, and that the admiral  will  go   south whence he will be relieved   about  March   next.     However   the   world . rolls  round all the same.     There will be another  to take his place, perhaps as good,   may   be  better.

Howerer, Russia advoca^esthe peace policy  about the last place from which such a   ful-  mination would   be  expected; and   as   the  Auglo-Saxons have  combined,   it   fills   the  bill.

Last  week as Mr. Fechuer and wife were driving  in a cutter in front of the Cumberland Hotel, another team came dashing up. causing  Mr. Fechner's horse to jump, sending both  him and Mrs. Fochner into the snow. Neither were injured.  The next day a small party of ladies and  gentlemen went down into the country.  They joked about tipping over the cutter  ���������and giving their companions a snow batb.  The ladies said nothing, but one of them  shortly after asked to take the ribbons,  which requeac was politely granted^ At a  convenient point the lady driver suddenly  jerked one line -bringing the horse to the  roadside and nt-atly dumping the whuie party into the sno w. The tables had been  neatly turned and one of the gentlemen as  he picked himself up, looked as white :  as Santa Claus, and had his coat rendered in  two parts. As the ladies. were prepared  for a jump they had much the best of it.  The News has a good job  plant.and can turn out anything in that line with neatness  and dispatch.

Perhaps  ��������� Celine   Leroque   know by  instinct   that  tho master of Oakley cherished an aversion   to   French maids in  particular;   or  perhaps sho was an   eyccptional   French  maid, - and   craved   neither   the   smiles  nor slyly administered  caresses, that fail  to th'o lot of pretty femmos dc   chamhre,  at least, in novels.    At any rate, certain  it is that Miss Arthur's, maid manifested  no   desire   to be seen by the   inmates   of  ' the household, and sho   had been   domiciled   for   somo   weeks   without   having  vouchsafed   to   either  John    Arthur   or  Lucian   Davlin   more   than   a    fleeting  ' glimpse of her maidship.  Things were' becoming very   monotonous to some of,tho occupants of the Oakley   manor;    very, very dull and   flavorless.  > y Cora wa6   growing restless.,   Not   that  'f. ..'tho astute lady permitted   signs   of  dis-  V.content'to bepome manifest to the  unin-  .* Vitiated, but   Lucian   Davlin saw, with a  ' mingled feeling ot satisfaction   and dis-  ��������� may, that   the rolo  of devoted wife   had  , * ceasod. to interest his blond comrade   in-  ' , iniquity.  ." ;,    Tho fact gave him a malicious pleasure,  ',, 'because, as fate had dared to play against  ���������!', him,   he    would   have    felt    especially  *' aggrieved   if a fow thorns had   not   boon  ���������; introduced   into   the   eider   down    that  '.-seemingly enveloped his fair accomplice.

' \.-, "'It; was   in   obedience to one of  V^swiffc side glances that   he   followed  her  ? from   the   morning   room, one   forenoon  .about (three   weeks   aftor   ������ho    news   of  ' Madeline's death had come rto them.  The  day  was'  bright    but    chill,    and   tho  woman had-wrapped herself in   a   shawl  of vivid crimson, but stood   with   bared  head   in   the   sunlight  waiting   tho  approach of ber counterfeit brother.  "Cover your head, you very thoughtless woman," was his brotherly salutation as he - approached, plunging about  in his pockets in search of a cigar the  while.  "Bother!" she ejaculated tossing her  golden locks; "my hair needs a sunbnth.  I only wish I dare indulge myself further! If you had any heart you wouldn't  torture me so constantly with the odor  of those magnificent Havanas, whon you  know, how my very souL longs for a  weed !"  "Poor little wom?.u, " laughing maliciously;- "fancy Mrs. John Arrnur of  -Oakley smoking a Perique! Isn't it  ���������prime, Co.?" puffing out a cloud of  perfumed smoke  "Prime! bah! I'd like to strangle you,  or���������"  "Or?���������" inquiringly.  .   "Somebody," laughing nervously.  "Just so; Miss Arthur would be  good subject, and that would confer  favor on me, too,  by Jove!"  "I don't want to confer a favor on  you. You had much better try and do  me ono, I think.''  "With all my hcait, taking :r.y ability  for granted, of course; only Xoli :������e  how."  Cora shrugged her crimson-clad shoulders, "and they paced forward in siioncu  for a time.    Thon   as if  his stillness  had  "Oh, you did? Very clever of you.  Well, Mr. Davlin, has it occurred to you  that heaven might not be a congenial  climate for me?"  "Not while your wings are so fresh,  surely? You havo scarcely entered your  paradise,- fair peri. "  "Haven't I?'-'   ironically.   "Well, lam  tired of manna, anyhow."    Cora was always btrictly elegant in her choice of expressions,  "Now, Lucian, stop parleying  and tell me, when is this going to   end"  "When?"  He stopped and looked at her intently.  Twice they had traversed the terrace, and  now they paused at tho termination farthest from the honsp. Just before them  a diminutive flight of stone stops led  down to a narrow graveled walk, that  skirted a- velvety bit.of lawn, and was  in its ,turn hedged by some closo and  high-growing shrubs from the "Bollair  wood?," as they were called.. Beyond the  steps was a grip in the hedge, and this, cut  and trimmed until it formed a compact  and beautiful arch, was spanned by a  stile, built for tho convenience of those  who desired to reach the village by the  shortest route, the Bollair woods.  "Dun't repeat like a parrot, Lucian."  Cora raised her voice angrily. "I say,  when is this to rud? and how?"  ��������� They wore just oppesito the gap in tho  hedge, and Lucian, looking down upon  "Cora, stood lacing tho opening. As the  words crossed her lips, his "eyes fell upon  a figure'just behind her, and lie checked  the conversation by an involuntary motion of the hand.    ���������  Tho figure came toward  them.   Ir, was  Miss   Arthur's   French   maid,    and   she  carried in her hand a small parcel.    Evidently   she   was   returning   from   some  orrand   to- the  village.     Miss   Arthur's  maid   had   black hair, dressed very   low  on the forehead: eyes of some sort,   it  is  to be presumed,'but they  wore effectually concealed   by blue   glasses;    a   rather  pasty complexion';   a  form that  might  havo  been  good,   but   if  so, "its beauties  wore  hidden   by the loose,  and, a������?   Cora  expressed   it,   "floppy,"   stylo  of jacket  which sho habitually   woro.    Sho pacsod  them with alow  "Bon  jour, madame,"  and hurried up tho terrace.   At least she  was   walking   swiftly,    but    not,   very  smoothly,    up the terrace  when   Lucian  cast after her a last disapproving dance.  "Your  lady's  maid is not a   swan   nor  a beauty,''   he said, as they   by   mutual  consent went down tho steps.  Cora   made no reply   to   this, seeming  lost in thought.   They   walked on   for a  moment in silence.  But Celine "Leroque did   not   walk on  Beneficial Effects of Coffee'.  A woman writer who gave up coffee  recently found that she was unable to  continue 'her writing with any success  until she had resorted again to the stimulating beverage. Without it her mind  was logy and heavy. The Medical Times  quotes an authority on ,the ' subject of  prescribing coffee as a medicine in certain states of great debility and adds:  "Tea and coffee seem to be much  alike in many respects, but' the latter is  greatly preferable as to its sustaining  power. It would be a great advantage  to our working classes and a great help  toward tbe further development of social sobriety if coffee were to come into  greatly increased use and if the ability  to make it well could' be acquired. 'As  an example of the difference of effect of  tea and coffee upon the nerves the  writer notes what he believes many  sportsmen will confirm���������that it is far  better to drink coffee than (tea when  shooting. Tea, if strong or. in any quantity, especially if the individual be not  in very robust health, will induce a sort  of nervousness which is very prejudicial  to steady shooting. Under its influence'  one is apt to shoot too/quickly, whereas  coffee steadies the hand and gives quiet  nerves."

They     were    sauntering    slowly  down the hedgerow walk, their backs to  ward her.  Probably, the falling' parcel had. reminded the French maid of something  forgotten, for she turned swiftly, silently, and without tuiy of hor pervious awkwardness retraced hor steps and disappeared beyond the stile.  "What's the row, Co?" asked Lucian,  kicking a pobblo with his boot too.  "You are getting restive early in the  game. Can't you keep to the track for  another two months?"  "No."  "What then?"  "This. We must get that fool out of  the way"  "Meaning who?"  "She,    of   courso���������Ellon Arthur.    Tho  woman   will make a raving   maniac   of  me in two months more.

Therefore, according as tho shutter, C, uncovers  tho more   or   loss   luminous  parts of the  image, currents of varying intensity will  pass through the coarse wire of the induction coil, F.    These, according to'a well-  known law, cause proportionate   currents  in the line wire   ot   tho   coil.    This  fine  wire ends on the one hand   in   the earth,  and on tho   other   goes , to tho roceivins  station,   where   tha   currents  of varying  intensity tnat traverso it cause tho vibration of the disk of a sort of very sensitive  telephone,   H.    This   disk   acts upon an  opaque plate, K, provided with  transparent lines, and displaces it more or less in  front of an identical but stationary plate,  L.   These platos aro protected against external disturbance by glass. The result is  that a   pencil of parallel   light,    M, produced by a   lamp,   N,   with  crossed carbons, and   ohligod   to   pass  through the  two opaque plates, is more or less diminished throughout its whole extent, according to the currents that pass through tho  fine wire.    But. thanks to  a   shutter, O,  Identical   and   synchronous   with C, this  variation in   intensity   is projected upon  the screen by an optical   system, P, only  at the plate corresponding to the   part of  the image which, at a   transmitting   station, has the same   intensity.    Since  the  two shutters, >C and O,   mako   one   complete revolution in one-ton th of a second,  all the parts of the image act successively  upon the selenium   during   this time, at  the transmitting station, .and give different intensities to the   current   at the receiving station, and thus   project luminous intensities   that   correspond   to their  respective intensity.  Any observer, then, at the receiver station sees upon the screen tho person placed  at the transmitting station, by virtue of  tho persistence of luminous impressions,  which is one-tenth of a second, and by  the fact that it suffices to have all small  surfaces more or less light in order to reproduce a portrait.

Scqtt, who has  a feed store on Walton  street, aiid is well and favorably known  ,in town and vicinity, "ij,-Less  than  two  years ago  Mrf Crosgrey was the recipient of much sympathy on account of a  .severe affliction   which  befel  him, depriving hini^of the use of his right leg,  and from, doing any labor except a few  odd  days   work.     , His   recovery  was  wrought  so   suddenly^and^completely  that the   Times considered  the  matter  would be of  sufficient   interest to its  readers to  obtain  an   interview with  Mr. Crosgrey.    In substance Mr., Crosgrey told the following story of his illness:;���������"In April, 1895,   I was laid'up  for seven  weeks   with  typhoid fever,  and after I recovered from the'fever my  right leg began to swell,   jtg was very,  painful indeed, and in a few weeks it  was three times its natural size���������nearly as large,as that telephone pole," and  he pointed to a stick of  timber  ten in-,  ches in diameter.   ' 'Nothing the doctor  did gave me any relief, and I consulted  another with the same result.   I suffered   for   nearly   live   months   when  I  noticed that the swelling began to decrease and Ipjecame -hopeful oc  recovery.    But the improvement   only continued for a short time  and   then  the  swelling became  greater and  two big  ulcers,formed on the.inside of "the leg  above the   ankle.    These  ulcers  were  right through to tbe bone and you could  put  that much  into^ them," and  Mr.  Crosgrey indicated on his thumbJan object an inch in length.     "For the next  year and  a half I was  treated  by four  or five doctors  but my leg and   the ulcers were as  bad as ever.    The doctors  pronounced the j disease phlebitis or in-  flamation of the veins.    They didn't  seem to know what to do for me, however,  and I despaired of getting well.''  Mr. Crosgrey's relief came in a strange  manner, almost  by chance  one  might  say.    He tells of it this way:���������"I had  a relative living near Teeswater, named  William Baptist.    He heard of my condition and sent word to me  to   try Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.    His  reason for  recommending them, he stated, was because they had cured him   of  serious  trouble in both legs, when all  else had  failed.    I decided  to  try them  and in  less than five  weeks  the   ulcers  were  completely healed and the swelling  in  my legs disappeared.   The ulcers never  returned   and  my leg is just  about as  sound as the  other one.     I know  that  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills   alone  cured  me when doctors and all   others medicines failed and I am willing  that the  details of my illness and. cure be made  known."      Mr.   Crosgrey   who   is  41  3rears of age, is now at work every day.  The nature of his work, that  of lifting  heavy bags of flour and feed, is proof of  his complete recovery.    He   is  a  life  long friend of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  and never  lets an  oppoitunity pass  pf*  speaking a good word for them.  The above  statement  was sworn to  before the  undersigned at  Port  Hope,  on the 17th day of February, 1898.  ���������    D. H. OHISHOLM.  A YOUNG  GIRL'S ESCAPE.

For the benefit of Canadian mothers,  who have daughters who are weak, pale,  run down or nervous, Mrs. Belanjjer, 128  Bideau Street, Ottawa, Ontario, made the  following statement, -<o that no one need  suffer through ignorance of the right  remedy, to use: "BJy daughter suffered  very much from heart troubles at times.  Often she .was bo bad that she could not  speak, but had to sit t *id gasp for breath.  She was so extremely nervous that her  limbs would fairly shake and tremble.  Frequently she would have to leave school;  and-finally she grew so weak that we were  much alarmed about her health. I gave  her many remedies, but they did not seem ������  to do her any good.  Then I heard of Milburn's Heart and  Nerve Pills, and got a box of them, and  they have indeed worked wonders with  her. I can recommend them very highly  as the best remedy I,ever heard of foe  complaints similar to those from which  my daughter suffered."  , Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills novel  fail to do good.

The- genuineness  of this set was proved by certificates issued to the owners by the French government, writes F. "Vizerelly in Godey'a.'  But by far the most valuable service'  turned ' out - at tbe Sevres pottery (in  177S) was made for tbe Czarina Catherine II of Russia and consisted of 745 ,  pieces, which cost $65,630.'

Smallest Electrical Batters',  The smallest electrical battery ever  constructed was the work of an electrician in the employ of the Boston Telephone Company. It consisted of an ordinary "glass head" through which two  wires, ono of copper and the other of iron,  were looped and twisted so as to prevent  their coming in contact. The wires acted  as the electrodes, and all that was necessary to cause a current was to placo a  drop of   acidulated   water   in   the head.

President McKinley's Speech   in  the south seems to have taken that  section by storm.   It was appreciative of southern valor and patriotism, and sounded the key   note   of  the extension of Saxon civilization  to the peoples of the newly conquered territories.    The south will have  in the great work its full share   of  toil and honor.    From now on  till  the   next national  election   President McKinley will lead under the  banner which he has now unfurled,  while Bailey and Bryan will struggle for the leadership of the opposition.    Expansion with its promise  of enlightened liberty to others will  win, and Briton and American w 11  vie in friendly rivalry ia   extend-,  ing free institutions   to   benighted  millions.

The.accident to Parker on Mount  Baker  is   another   evidence   that  "while mountain tops  are   healthy,  the danger is in going up and coming down.  The Government has now three  majority. The cases in the court  also number three. The determination of these will decide whether  there is to be a new election soon.

The attack on Judge Martin on  the ground he was not qualified .to  be made a judge, not having been  a barrister for 10 years before his  appointment is likely to fail, on  the ground that "the''Provincial  Legislature has not the power to  Impose restrictions on the appointing power of the Governor-General.  It is curious   how   fiercely   Bismarck���������dead���������is criticised.   While  he is admitted to be a man of  i/on  and blood, a statesman of tremendous force and   ability,   he   seems  justly charged with the   corruption  of the press,   with   deception, clow  cunning, and   great   cruelty.    Yel  he will be remembered in  spile   of  all this'for loyalty to his  King,  as.  a welder of nations, and as the personification of power.      Contrasled  with Gladstone, however, he dwindles in   everything but in physical  and intellectual  strength.    In  the  latter he was not superior, while he  lacked in   scholarly   attainments.  Morally he had no claims   worthy  of consideration.     Living  he   wae  feared, and almost worshipped as a  demi-god, but dead he is riven with  unfriendly darts,   and   beaten   by  the waves of adverse criticism.
