25cts., the proceeds to be devoted to

We are in receipt of a pretty little
calendar of the East Williams Mutual Fire Ins. Co., of Nairn, Ont. The
name of the secretary treasurer, is
Wm. McCallum, of Fernhill, Ont.,
who, upon enquiry, we find to be a
brother of Mr Archie McCallum, of
this town. The calendar is illustrated with a representation of a
burning barn, the owner of which
tells a friend he is insured in the
E.W. The friend drives a pair of
superb trotters, and this, no doubt,
will tickle Archie's f.incy.

Vancouver,  Feb. -2.-- Word  just
received  here of a serious  fire -af
Malcolm Island. " Eleven persons
were burned  to death and" fifteen
seriously  injured,  in the, Finnish
Colony.    Eight of the victims who
perished we're little, children.    The
fire occurred  in the headquarters
building of the Finnish Colony at
the   recently    established    village
which  was burned to the ground,
One hundred and  twenty were in
building when fife broke out, many
of these were babies.   The little ones
had been put to bed before 8 o'clock
when' the fire occurred, and those
who perished were either childreri
or adults  who   had   hastened   to
rescue their little ones.     Scores of
people  jumped   from  third   story
windows, for a general meeting of
the Colonists had been in session at
the time, many being badly Injured,
Sixteen families, including 77 souls
were burned  out and are now entirely   destitute,   everything   they
had    being   completely  destroyed.
Property loss over $10,000.

Englishmen are proverbially slow
to take up new things. .They cling to
the old till the new has been tried
and tested", till it lias been proven
beyond a doubt that, it is sound in
its   every principle.
But once they have passed on it',
and passed iavorably, it goes forth
to the world bearing a stamp of genuine value that' nothing else could
give it. And from that time forth
that new thing, be it' a, thought, a
fabric or a remedy, . bears the hall-
marJc of sterling worth that nothing
can destroy.

and faint. ( ^

The Water Cloclc. /
The.earliest application of the clepsydra principle to produce motion was by <
Tsiang nuug, A. D. 12(5. who made an j
Vorrery" representing the apparent mo- j
tion of the^lieavenly bodies around lho j
earth, which was kept going by drop- ;
ping water.,
In the sixth century of. the Christian
enujiu instrument was iu use in China
which indicated the course of time by
the weight'- of water as it gradually
came from the beak of a bird and was
received in a vessel on a balance,.every
pound representing a ouc-hundreclth
part of the day of twenty-four hours.
About tin's time mercury began to be
employed in clepsydras', instead of 'water. " < '       ,       r'

It'is related of the late "Bret Harte
that he was once traveling through -a
mountainous region by coach.  His seat
was ,next to  the' driver's,  and it oc-'
curred to him to entertain that' functionary-and .iincidentally   his , fellow
passengers 'by  narrating-a   series  of
hair raising episodes in the coaching
history��� of tbe wild west.    '     ���        ,>
��� With mischievous, ingenuity  he calculated, each tale so- cleverly that its
bloodcurdling climax was reached a't
a, particularly bad'bit of road,'  thus
* forcing' present' peril' to "heighten  the
���effect of imagined adventure.   ,At first
the adventures were not imagncd; they
were  true  stories,   but   the   widening
�� eyes and breathless interest of .his audience .was too great a temptation,' and
he. Won> began to' improvise his own,
fictitious  hero,  Yuba  Bill,   and  other
wondrous1 whip's of equal power were'
���pressed   into   service;   Indiausv "landslides,   .holdups,     blizzards,     broken
bridges, forest"fires and,runaways were
sprinkled in  to taste,  and  the  result
was a marvelous conglomerate of dime
novel, epic, racing annals and local history. . , f,   \      i        ,   /-   *
Even the slowly stirred perceptions
of the touring Briton at* length recognized that this was no -common story
teller,  and -when   Mr.' Harte  left' the'
coach speculation ran rife among those

The English governmem���had been
appealed to by Russia to make England too hot to hold the nihilists '.who
were hatching plots against the life < of
the czar, and Detective Frazer had
been employed to take the" preliminary
steps. He was to locate the "center"
and'spot tho individuals^comprising it,,
and when all'was ready^he^ would call
il'or assistance and draw a full net.
Frazer was the right man in the right
place. He was a human bloodhound
by instinct. He was without mercy
or pity for a .criminal.   He-was anibi-
f tious,' zealous and untiring. If any
public officer in London could locate
the   bloodthirsty   theorists   who  were
, causing the czar so much anxiety, it
was Frazer. ''He was a man of wonderful intuition, and he was trained int
tho art of running down shadows till
he found them, flesh and blood.
The' government did not  let it  be'-
1 come publicly known that it- was making a move -against the''refugee conspirators, - and Frazer took  care that
-no one should know of his'mission.  He
;went on a'still hunt for three months,'
and .during that time he covered every
district in London and became familiar with-every suburb.   Luck and intuition guided him aright.   One night.

"Well, ain't you never,
speak?" snapped her aunt,
you hear anything?"
"Yes, I heard lots, aunt," answered
the girl, trying hard,, tb keep the exultation from ringing in her voice. The
women leaned forward eagerly.'
"His   name   is   Mr.   Edward1 Lameroux''���
"Hoity-toity," sniffed Miss Lavinia.
"Just like a novel," murmured Mrs.
Marsden.
"And he's just home from China and
Japan, and he's going to stay, a year
this time, and he's brought her the
most beautiful silks you e-\or saw, and
I'm going there to sew on 'cm for a

"Lawzee, Peggy, why don't you get
down to facts?" ejaculated Miss Lavinia.    "Is he going, to marry her?"
"No!"   exclaimed. Peggy   in   a  final
burst  of triumph..   "He  can't.     He's
her twin brother, and he's in the navy,

Mrs. Demming rose abruptly, saying:
"I  declare  I   forgot  that 'batch   of
bread.    Like as not it's all over my
.clean floor."
Miss Lavinia, looking decidedly aggrieved,, departed in silence. One by
one her visitors left, and Mrs. Smithers
stood alone absently dusting and re-
dusting her tiny showcase.
And in Mrs. Burkett's cool parlor the*
widow was saying: .       ���
"I do feel so sorry for Peggy, Ned,
dear, that I believe I'll ask her aunt to
let me take her to Boston when we go
back. She is so handy with her needle.
I know I could get her lots of work."
"Well, if she's so handy, why don't
you have her for your maid?"

An old lady of"his flock once called
upon Dr. Gill with a grievance. The
doctor's neckbands were too long lor
her ideas of ministerial humility, and
after a long harangue on the sin of
pride she intimated that she had
brought a pair of scissors with - her
and would be pleased if her dear pastor would permit her to cut them down
to her notions of propriety.
The doctor not only listened patiently, but handed over the offeudiug white
bands to be opera (ed .upon. When she
had cut them to her satisfaction'and
returned the bibs, It was the doctor's
turn. - -
"Now," said'he, "you must do me a
good turn also."' J y \
"Yes, that I will, doctor. What can
it be?"
"Well, you have something about
you which is a deal too long and which
causes me no end of trouble, and I
should like to see it shorter."
"Indeed," dear sir,'I will not hesitate.
What is it? Here are the scissors.
Use them as you please."
"Come, then," said the sturdy-divine,'
"good sister, put out your tongue."���

' eight of the men he wanted.    The .papers did not call them nihilists,  but
counterfeiters, for the papers,were not
told of the bombs,, infernal machines
and   treasonable ^ literature, captured
with them, yy,   ���     " ��� -i-*-���"-"
There were ten nihilists in"the group,
,' and Frazer had secured but eight of
* them.   ' The  eight  were> given ' up  to
Russia1 to become Siberian exiles, but
the   other ,two   were   left   behind   to(
avenge them.    That they would-seek
^his  death   Frazer  fully  realized  and
prepared himself' for the struggle.   JLt
they had to do with a crafty, 'aggressive man?who knew^no fear,, he had to
do with two cunning, 'vindictive men
who had sworn to take' his life and
would dare everything -to accomplish
their object*    Their " identity .was  un-I
known to him,'*as^ they had' been' but
. of the country whilo he was working
-up��,his'case,\wb.He''it ,wasvmore than
probable that they knew him by-sight.
They' also had the--advantage* of "having friends among the criminal classes
who would aid them in various ways.
Having concluded his labors for the
English government, the English government wanted nothing more of Detective Frazer.   Were it known that he
had received orders from the cabinet
there was no telling what public building might be blown up in-re'venge.   An
infernal machine in the house of parliament or a bomb thrown through a
window   of   Somerset   House   would
awaken all England, in an hour, and
questions might be asked that the government would find it embarrassing to
ansiver.
While England and Russia have long
been on the most friendly terms, there
are plenty of .Englishmen, and many
of them people of influence, who sympathize withjthe .struggle for freedom
in Russia and argue that the czar's obstinacy has driven his! subjects to
adopt extreme measures. The government would have been glad to hear
that Frazer was going off to Australia
or America for a long vacation, and it
so hinted, but he refused lo go. He
knew he had been marked down by the
two nihilists, and pride prevented him
from running away. While they hunted for him he would hunt for them. It
should be a battle to the death.
He made an immediate move, and
perhaps it was with a feeling of exultation that he discovered that the
enemy was ju'st as prompt. He was
in a low dancehouso in disguise when
the point of a knife thrust at his heart
was buried in the momorandum book
in his pocket, and the would be assassin got away. Frazer was not injured,
but his nerves were a bit shaken. In
leaving the street behind him a brick,
dropped from a third story window,
missed his head by an inch. The next
day he called other officers to his aid
an(l raided a house of doubtful character, but of all the persons pulled in
none was detained beyond a day.
From that day on, for months and
months, Frazer was hunting over London. He was never Frazer as his comrades, knew him. He had a dozen different disguises, and if he was a "toft"
one day he was a costermonger the
next. Here and there he picked up a
clew ��� until it came to pass * that he
knew the lodgings .of his foes and
would have recognized their faces on
the street. Then they suddenly disappeared, and within a week^hey had
taken a leaf out of his book and adopted disguises. A seeming mendicant accosted him one day and sought to stab
him in the back. As he walked the
streets one night a bullet whizzed by
his head. A box was loft at his lodgings which proved to be an infernal
machine, and in the crowd'at the en
trance of a  theater an  attempt was
made to assassinate him.
It was a game of life and deaths
well played, but though the detective-
realized ' that the odds were against
him he would not give up. He shifted .',
liis lodgings, had the press announce-
that he had left England and went into- >'
��� the slums as an evangelist.^ After two
weeks he spotted 6ne of his men, but      >
before he could make a move he was ' -
assaulted and laid up for a fortnights ,
' He was traced to  his  new lodgings,/
and a bomb was used to blowi out the*
front of the house. ' ^
He was determined to give the nihil- '     >'
lsts no rest until he had tnem in Uinuo,..
'and on the other hand a' now "center""   '    > _
appeared and solemn oaths were "taken:.'   ?K
to run Frazer,, to his death1 before carrying out any  other work.    He ' was-
warned by anonymous letters of what
was being done and what was inevita-   *
ble unless he drew off, but each < hew-
development only made him tho more>    ���'
determined.   He felt now that it was1 a "
losing game on his side, but he .wouldL - <
continue to play it to the end. ��      f ',<,
In  four months  Frazer  shifted' hfs*'  \ *
lodgings seven times. During the'saine
time he shot and wounded two menv
who had sought" to corner'him. and he     '    ,
arrested, eight or ten suspicious characters.    A man who had-entered'hia 0
lodgings at midnight was almost .killed      x   ,
by a blow from a club, .'andi another^
who was surprised in the act of throw-    , :t
ing a bomb through ,the window, was*       (
-flung into",the gutter and had his leg:    ^
^broken.    At his last shift, of lodgings %
Frazer moved clear across'London and        '/ ,
assumed the disguise of a' tramp." For-  "   t-\
a week he heard nothing from his foes,r  f
but it they had dropped -him lie had"" ���      j

*    By and by the clergyman went away,
and left Frazer silting ""there bolt up-,"
right/ his hands clasped and his eyes'   '
staring into vacancy. , It was ten minutes before a   policeman  came along:
and had his attention attracted by the
pallor of the man's face.    He laid his
hand   on   the   tramp's   shoulder   and
asked'him if he were 111, and the body, ,
toppled  over sideways on the bench. '
The disguised Frazer had been stabbed to the heart by a small dagger In- ���,
the hands of the clergyman, and the
man who had been marked down,had
been removed at last. What was called-
"the  park  mystery"   created   a ��� good'    '
deal of talk and wonder, and it was.
announced that the best talent of Scotland Yard had been put on tho case. >
No arrests were ever made,  however,
and to this day it is-a ni3rstery to the
English public why the murder should
have been committed.         ��� *-'

Caspa*o' Spontini, the composer, re*
garded himself in the light of a demigod, and wheu inspirations crowded
upon him he donned a wide, togalike
gown of while silk with a. border of
gold and a fez of white silk embroidered in gold, from which a heavy tassel
hung down. With great digjiity he sat;
down before his desk, and if a grain
of dust was visible on the paper on
which he penned his music he rang
the bell impatiently for his servant to
remove the obstacle. Spontini owned
so many medals and decorations that
they could no longer be accommodated
on his breast. At a grand musical reunion at Halle an old musician re-.,
marked to a comrade. "See how many
decorations Spontini has, while .Mozart
has not one." Spontini. who overheard
it, .replied quickly. "Mozart, my dear

' :  . ' Something was going on. .In through  the half open "door could be heard a  buzz of people, and an expert in such  matters, if he had passed by and even  had casually looked within,' would have  known that a church fair was in progress. '  - It was indeed the annual church fair  held under the auspices of the Young  '.r' (Women's guild, and this year the min-  . Ister's daughter was in , charge of the  proceedings.    Her father, away on his  vacation, had called her into his study  before his departure and appealed to  her ,veryr strongly, to . "do her share."  'ft-nd so she Had suddenly announced her  ^determination to take' an active part,"  ���������much to'the surprise of every one, as  ' up,,to the present time she had been  ��������� more interested in playing golf than in  spiritual  matters_and had , even , been  called a "regular"tornboy" by certain  recalcitrant, beings   in   old   fashioned  bonnets.      <     '       i ������       s ,  ��������� ' - "She will tnake a failure of it," ari-  ; , nounced Mrs. Mintby, the .official critic  of the minister's,family. "That girl is  too harebrained, and,- besides,!, what  does she know about such, matters?  She wouldn't be seen in church half the  .time if common decency .didn't make  her go." ^ *      i  ,   "That's so," assented 'Mrs. Dickster.  ���������"All she cares about are the men and  Y    outdoor sports-anyhow."  _ And now,  when' the  fair  was  half  over, it began to seem as if these predictions   were   to 'be   fulfilled.    The  , booths combined had taken in barely  '$50, and to send those poor  children  "away for this summer���������for the "minister's daughter, with a fine scbrnof for-  ��������� eign missions, had'insistcd .that charity shouldrbegin at home���������seemed a des-  ., perate, chance, and at this particular  -    moment it seemed as if nothing,short  of a miracle Avould swell the receipts  fer, the next two hours. <  The minister's  daughter  stepped to  ' i, the table'where the chairman usually  ' ��������� presided.   There was a sudden hush.  She looked over her auditors a moment  iwith a calm, penetrating gaze.  "Girls," she' said, "wo have got to be  kissed!"       ��������� -  A chorus of "Oh's" and feminine  screams and protests was her answer.  "There is no help for it," she continued. "Wo must raise a lot of money  before this night is over. Now, my  plan is this: We will all stand up and  bo kissed at auction, one at a lime, to  the highest bidder. Now, girls, don't  go back on me. Remember," it's in - a  good cause. How many can 1 count  on?".  There was a pause; a hand was  raised, another, and then another.  In ten minutes more eight exceeding*-  ���������ly pretty girls, headed by one who was  prettier than all of them, tiled into the  main room and grouped .themselves  about a chair. One of them stood up  in the chair, to which this legend, was  ��������� attached:  THIS  YOUNG LADY WILL. EE  KISSED  AT  AUCTION.  HOW MUCH  WILL  YOU  GIVE?  It would probably be difficult, not to  say impossible, to explain why this  startling and sensational news should  spread so rapidly through a whole parish. But that such Avas the case1 is a  stern fact. Young men idling away  their time at the club knew it iu fifteen  minutes and started in a body for the  scene of the auction. Other young men  .-who had not been to church for years  ��������� hurried from their telephones into their  best clothes with all the haste demanded of the volunteer fire department. It  spread even as far as Mike.Dady's gambling establishment and caused that  astute individual to prick up his ears  ;in an unusual .degree'for one inured to  that sort of stoicism that the roulette  table fosters. And so there was a kissing game going on at the church, led  by-the minister's . daughter herself.  Here was a fine chance to get even.  Mike had had to close up his place once  -for'several weeks because of a scathing  sermon preached by this same clergy-  ..mau, and the remembrance of it still  rankled.  "Here, boy," he said to a tall, fresh'  looking youth of seventeen, handing  him a roll of bills, "you go over to the  church fair, and if the sky pilot's  daughter is going to be paid for a sweet  kiss, push up in front and bid up. Don't  let any one else get it, to the limit of  your wad���������understand? I'll be there in  time."  The boy, fresh and fair and innfcoent  looking���������as the run of boys in "gilded  hells" are apt to be���������was off in a trice,  and m ten minutes more had added his ! once."-  individual unit to the circle around the !  main'center of osculatory interest.        j  It is "highly probable that if such a '  really scandalous proceeding as" this  auction had been premeditated and advertised'beforehand it would have been  .promptly squashed by the pillars of the  church, but the suddenness of it took  the critics off their feet, and it was well  in hand and "going on" beforo any one  had time to take breath.  The minister's daughter was the auctioneer.   A bamboo cane with a strip  ,of red bunting on it was her wand of  porvif*4    Tall  and  starelv and "beauti-  rul, her eyes hashing with the'fun, she  'stood by the chair and waved her flag.  "Now, ladies and gentlemen," she  cried, "here is Miss Kitty Jones. How  much am I offered for a sweet kiss?  What!. Only two dollars? For shame!  Do you appreciate what you are getting? Five, did you say? Now make it  six. Six it is. Seven from lhe gentleman on the right. Seven, seven, seven  ���������eight, eight���������will some one make it  nine? That's" right. You'll never regret it. Nine, nine.' Now ten. That's  better. Ten it is. Come, gentlemen,  'bid'up." ' '   .  The excitement ran high.

Rudd Castleto'n, the best golf player in  "But do you think he stayed there?"  "Well, I did hear that they' tried to  put him out."  ''And they did not succeed?"  "No.    According to  la.est  accounts,  they had not succeeded.",-  "Why. how was "thai?"' -   '  "Well, sonny, it .was this way: They  couldn't find a lawyer in, the place to  draw up the papers!"���������N"ew York  Tribune.

On the table by her side, lay aJ  collection box holding over $200, the  proceeds of this unusual traffic. ' Perhaps the consciousness' that sho had  succeeded,,that th'ose poor, little "tots"  would';get their outing', was enough to"  make her oblivious of herself.    's  At'any rate she was calm and beautifully "collected as she stepped on the  chair, disdaining the helping hand that  a spectator held outrto her.  ' "Ladies and gentlemen,'" she said,  "with your kind permission 1 will be  my own1-auctioneer, and .1 ^wiil spare  you the usual compliments. I am here  to raise all'the money I can for the  poor children; and I am selling a kiss  to the highest bidder. How much am  I offered,?" - '     .  "Twcnty-fiv.e dollars." ���������.   *  " "The first bid, ladies and gentlemen,  is $25.  Will you make it thirty 1 r Thirty* it is,  thirty,  thirty���������thirty-five.

' ^  "I'll make it forty," he said.  '  The auctioneer was unmoved.      <-  "I am offered $40,''' she said. "Gentlemen, bid up. Forty, forty, forty,  going at forty���������going, .going.' gone.  Y'oung man, the kiss is yours at $40."  '��������� There was a slight pause, a flutter of  interest. This nice looking, gentlemanly appearing boy, with $40 to bid for a  single kiss, who was he? At any rate it  didn't matter much. - He was only a  boy. x  "What a relief," whispered one of  the committee, "to think her reputation  has been saved by a young thing like  that! Why, it doesn't mean anything to  be kissed by him. An act of Providence, 1 verily believe!"  Almost as if in reply the boy turned  half around as the figure of Mike Dady l  slowly forced its way through the circle.  "I was bidding for some one else,"'  said the boy, holding out the nioncj-.  "Yes." said Mike,'his cool, insolent  eyes sweeping the crowd. "He was  bidding for me. He was my���������what do  you call it?���������proxy. ' I'll take the kiss, if  you please."  A dead silence���������an awful pause.  For the first time that evening a flush  spread over the face of the minister's  daughter, a flush that made its way  from her firmly rounded throat up over  her cheeks to the line of fair hair on  her forehead.  She looked around the crowd almost  appealingly. Was there no one to help  her in this-dilemma? Suddenly her eye  lighted on a figure that stood half concealed from view���������a short, squat figure  ���������and there came to her voice a ring of  triumph.  "You shall be paid," she said. "The  money, please."  It was handed to her, and she put  the bills in a box.  Then she turned to the figure she  had seen���������the old family colored cook,  black a.s the ace of spades, who had  come to witness "do proceedin's."  "Gome here, mammy," she whispered,  and, drawing her close and putting her  arms around her, she kissed the black  face a resounding smack. ��������� ���������.,'_ .  Then she turned to the gambler. ,  "And here;" she said, "is my proxy.  Take your pay, sir!"���������Tom Massoii in  Brandur Magazine.  An "RRlcIiHo'Trlcls:.  The short, chunky, wooden looking.

You. hear often from car window observers   of   tho   "dreary,"   desert,   the  "hopeless," the "cheerless", desert, but  the desert deserves none of these adjectives.

Billy Saunders is a natural, born  wit. He is in his eightieth year, liv.  ing here in New York, and is still  working at his trade, painting. On a  recent occasion Billy and one or two  of his mates were beautifying a lawyer's office. The younger partner,  think ill g to take a "rise" out of Billy,  said:  "I say, Billy, did you ever know of  a painter going to heaven?"  "Yres," replied Billy, "I knew of one  Mopdy   tlie   Wronj;   Sinu,  Riyors was angry.

The old red brick mansion stood up  primly, its harsh outlines of uncompromising'squareness half hidden by,a  riot of Guelder roses'that climbed and  threw'long green arms of ,loveliness  around the small diamond panes of the  windows. A straight box-bordered path  led down to the gate through ./an avenue of beeches, where the sunlight fell  in lance rifts.down upon the blue"grass  fresh with the green of May���������May time  in old Kentucky in the year of our Lord-  1S33. Beyond the rustic gate a broad,  white road Van from cast to avcrI.  Those were strange processions lliat  wound along the great highroad, the  artery of trade,,from the east over the  Alleghaniers to'Kenlucky and the southern country that lay beyond in'the gateway of the wilderncss-r-long trains of  white covered wagons filled with a  medley of women! children, household  goods, with their' escorts' of stalwart  men on horseback. Already thehegira  to' the west had commenced, often a  tribe, of' Choctaws bound for the wigwam [ of '"the, great', father, grim, dusk  'faces under nodding plumes, animated  bundles, with smaller bundles bound to  their backs, astride of the ponies, silent  ?as ghosts, and passing, always.passing,  up the long white" road. ^ *' .  a Twice each .clay, with the long tan-  tara-r'a-ni,o������>the busies and the rattle  of whip and hoof, came the stagecoach,'  a flash of color from east to west, and  again the quiet pf earth and sky.  .  Over the hills, whose "dim, blue line  encompassed < her world around, the  child's heart went each day with the  dying echo of hoof and bugle;'over  the hills, where.the gold lights of'sunset kissed' the< pink. limestone 'cliffs',  brightening to emeraldAgrecn the tufts  of maidenhair in the deep clefts, and  farther tip, where the mists caught and  held them, deepening into the evening's  violet crown. ,, ���������      "' "      ���������.'���������'"'    '  - A slim, shy maid of barely fifteen, in  "���������her long, harrow sldwt. and-"prim kerchief drawn'tightly across tho,.childish  breast., the small'brown hand shading  her level, brows,-'she; watched with  wistful 'eyes up ,the long ribbon of  road���������littlelAnne, with,her peach blossom face and soft gray eyes that'had  dared toMook from under their long  black,' lashes at a face that was the  face of a people's hero;*riot all the people, for here in her father's house Anne  had heard (fierce ' denunciations and  even curses agaiust that name. But  when had politics aught to do with a  maid's romancing? Deep down'in her  heart the girl cherished the memory  ctf one summer evening, when all alone  the great man reined in his ^horse and  sprang from tho saddle to walk and  talk with a pretty child. Two years  had come and gone, but over the low  gate'Anne leaned and dreamed of her  hero as-did that Lisa in faroff Italy  of her king.  The evening shadows grew longer"  and the sun vanished behind the hills  as the tinkle of bells chimed up from  the pasture. With eyes still' dream  thralled Anne wandered out and across  the road to where the spring bubbled  up from its mossy pool. A little rustic  summer hou&c sheltered it, and the little stream lost itself in a dense thicket  of hazel bushes that grow close up to  the arbor. The girl's light foot made  no souud as she entered .and dropped  down upon the seat. Voices close at  hand aroused her as a low murmur  came from the hazel copse.  "The best place is where the road  comes through Ilungerford's woods,  this side of the mill."  Then another voice: "I don't like it.  It's doing aH the dirty work and getting the kicks for pay. Let them as  wants him out of the way put him  there."  And the first voice answered with an  "What's that to you?  The men  dead  "Deli������:Ii.������uJ.  Death.

Anne's heart  gave a. great bound, then almost stop-  pod, .as there was a rustle among the  bashes. She strained her ears to catch  the lust words.  "He'll likely .spend tonight at'Hunger ford's, leaving'there by daybreak."  "No. There hain't but one nigger  along. He don't like comp'ny a-travel-  in'." And the low chuckle died in the  distance. .- .-���������'���������: '^  It was .nearly dark as Anne crept out  from-her hiding place and glanced fearfully up the long white road. She  knew that Ilungerford's lay fifteen  miles away as the crow flics, and to  reach it would mean a ride through the  night���������morning would be ' too late;  knew too, poor child, that in the hearts  of those' about her dwelt the bitterest  hatred of the man that she would have  risked her life to save! > Not that they  would have lifted a hand against his  Hfe, but they would have, laughed her  story down and bade her hush, as children should.        .

'  The delightful possibilities of a  walking trip can scarcely be overestimated. It is more enjoyable than  a two or three hours' walk, because  -it-.furnishes that spice, of adventure  demanded by every true, walker.  Moreover, it affords unlimited opportunities for" broadening one's view  and, becoming better acquainted with-  one's.-country and its people.   '<.'���������  In'the first place, some idea should"  be' formed <as to the length of the  trip. I' think, that ,f("a/ a first trip  twenty miles is far anough. ..An ordinary girl can' probably cover this  distance in two.or three days.- From  tliis first trip-an estimate' of one's  walking abilities .may- be gahicd,  from which the length of other trips  rnay^be computed. , ' ->������������������''''',.  " Tlie, destination is'-the next thing to  bo considered. It is best to appoint'  this a town-or village, lrbm which a  train may- be taken home, as the  w al leers ^-.v ill probably bo too fatigued  at' the end of tliicir journey to wish  to retrace their steps. Then,',a map  of the country throiigh' which they  will walk', sU-owni-g roads,, may be  *'securqd.

The trouble is they do not  always   know " what    to   do   for   his  ^ i i  lordship. An Ontario mother writes  to tell what is bosc to do: "When my  baby was teething," she says, "he  was so c/oss and lestless that I  hardly knew .what to do with him.  He had a poor, appetite, and was  growing thin. I got a box of Baby's  Own Tablets and they made a gieat  change. He now iests well; has a  splendid appetite, and gives me no  trouble at all." This is the experience -not only of Mrs. D. K.

'A large meeting of representative  citizens was held in Victoria on the  ;23rd January; to take steps for the  "development of Vancouver  Island  by railway construction.'. Delegates  from  Nanaimo ai..d. points on the ;  B.'andN.   line   were present,, and  joined with the Victorians in their  movement.*., obtain further railway '  ���������development on  the Island;' - The  following resolution was passed :���������  ������ Resolved,' that* a representative  meeting of Lhe cii-zens of Victoria  is of the'opinion-th'at,!^ time has  -.arrived when, energetic steps ought-  to be taken to bring about the development of VancouverTfcland by,  railway construction; ^   ' *   .  - And'further resolved,.that a commit teo   Be appointed   to.take such  pi������.ps-ae> ma;y deem advisable 'to  promote  railway/construction Vto-  the NwrWm end of the Island by  shclv route as. will' best promote the  deyel'ojimeht.of'-the Island,   and to  .report  to /a   public* meeting,, to be  "called by'hia Worship'the Mayor;  And,  further .-resolved, that the  " co-ope-aliqn   of   the  people' of * all/  -parts of the Island be invited.",  Mr C. H.Lugriri,   who   wits  the  first; speaker, pointed out the 'diffe'r-  ;���������  eni routes, propoeed-in-building a  line-to lap the,North endrof jhe Is-  .   land.    The E.and N. he considered  was  a great/' factor ih any scheme  for extending a Hue to the No.th of  the Island, and he knew'of his own  personal knowledge that Mr James '  Dunsmuir was a man of too,broad  and liberal--views to interpose any  .objections in the matter of It-land,  " devel" pmwnt,  and  that   he   never  would  be   found -interposing   his  personal interests against the wishes  of the country.    Mr W, F. Heddie,  pfebident of the Nanaimo Board of  Trade, was one of the speakers, and  read   a  resolution   passed   by the  Nanaimo Board of Trade endorsing  the project to extend the E. and N.  load to the north end of the Island  He  thought the advantages to be  gained by following the East Coasr  greater than  by going up  through  the centre of the Island.     Senator  McDonald   s-aid   what was wanted  was  a   commercial   road���������a  Bute  Inlet road down tbe Island.    Mr D.  Higgins pointed out that  much  of  the  mineral lauds in   the  railway  belt were   tied up, which   retarded  the progress of the Province.      In  answer to the question,   " ���������why  did  you support the grant? "    Mr Higgins   replied,   " because   I   was   a  darned fool."''.   Mr Higgins moved  the following resolution which was  carried:���������-''Resolved that a railway.,  to the' Northern _end of Vancouver  Island in necessary to insure   the  prosperity of this part of  the Province;  and that while we heartily  approve of  any practicable means  to secure its  construction, we   aie  opposed to any scheme of bonusing  such line unless the power oi fixing  the rates to be charged for freight  and passage be vested in   the  Provincial     Government,    and     that  should  a   bonus of  land  be given,  all  the  minerals,  coal and timber  contained in the grant, shall be reserved and administered for the use  and advantage of the people of  the  Province."  The following committee was ap  pointed:���������!1. W. Pater son. 'M.P.P.,  Dr Milne,'C. FVTodd' S. J': Pitts,  D.R.Ker, A.J. Morley? P..L. Drury,  'S.. Leiser, . L- G. McQuade/D. W.  Higgins, PR.

',    '     '  PUNISHMENT OF A TRAITOR." ,  The trial of Col: Arthur,, Lynch,,  member of the Imperial Parliament  for  Galvvay/ was concluded on the*  23rd  January.     No'"attempt   was  made  to "deny   that  ther prisoner  V , - x "��������� J  supported' the Boers, but his Counsel contended that his, naturaliza-  tion was not prompted by ,'treason-  able intent..In the belief that he was  a-loyally, naturalized burgher, the  prisoner supported .the Boer cause.  The,:Sol.-Generalr maintained -that  Lynch joined the Army as a discontented Irishman, thereby c--ma-  mitting a most cowardly and serious act of-treason. His naturalization, was'only "a flimsy  pretext".  "The Lord Chief Justice, in suninii-ivi  ing1 up, said that if in war time/a"  'British subject joined the King's  enemies, whatever his purpose," he  was guilty of an -unlawful act.  Naturalization-* during   war   time  -afforded no excuse whatever for  subsequent, acts.  In   delivering  sentence,   Justice  Wills said the crime of high treason  of which  the  prisoner   had   been  found guilty, was happily so rare,  that it seems to be almost  an  anachronism.    No civilised community had yet failed to punish sever- *  ely defection from loyalty, whether  in the way of open warfare or secret  intrigue.     In the darkest hours of  his  country's fortune, when engaged   in   a . deadly struggle,   Lynch  joined the ranks of its foesand shed  the blood of his fellow-subjects who  were fighting   for   their   country,  and sought to dethrone Great Britain fiom her place among the nations.     The only palliation which  could   be  offered  was that it had  vbeeu the fashion for some years  to  treat lightly matters of this kind,  and men  had been encouraged to  play with  sedition and to go with  the fa-hion; the nation had treated  with     contemptuous    indifference  speeches and acts of sedition, but it  was.one thing to talk sedition, and  quite a different, thing to bear arms  in 'the   ranks ��������� of    the   country's  enemies.
