(Such a grievous error   is however;
not likely to occur again, although
it does not in any way excuse them)
Secondly,   the writer  says   that
the Board did not instruct the committee to  c.dl   for  public  tenders
but to purchase (at their own   discretion) articles required;   also  in
thif? thev are to blame, as it is cus-
ternary and proper to call fur pub ���
lie tenders on   all   supplies   for  a
public or Government institution,
and, furthermore, a�� he claims that
they (the   Board)   were   there tu
consider the bestlinancial interests
of the Hospital, it should have   occurred to them that this   could   be
done, only by calling for tenders in
a business like way, it being   are-
cognized fact that the   public  can
by that method, get closer prices
The secretary of the   Board   admits that.there was a lack of bu'si-
noss'courtesy shosvn to   the   other
merchants, but that is . putting   it
to mildly altogether, for  if the actual facts of   the   ti ansaction  were
make known, it might  be proven
that the red blankets referred lo in

by the committee before  calling on ;
the merchants in the first instance.

He only walked in front because  the dust the mules kicked up was apt to  , get   into   his  eye's  aud   nose 'and   annoy  Dhim generally if he walked behind.,   lie  \vas whistling cheerily, despite the great  .  'midday heat, for was he'not going along  the  road, where  old  Nito's  olive  ga': den  'was?  Very likely Nella would be working  there this morning, and they  could  rest  a  little, and eat 'their  frugal   dinner  to-  'gether if she were.    Nella was the beauty of the village and was going to marry  . his cousin Loti, but that did uot mat let-  to-'Perio. -  Loti   was, away   in   Naples.,  working hard  there to make the money  .   to furnish their little'home with.  ' But.today Perio was not quite so satisfied as usual. 0He had not the'slightest  objection to N cilia's flirting with him  when Loti was away, but when it car.n-  ��������� to her bestowing sof (^glances on another  man, then he began to" burn in righteous  anger and resentment against her treatment of his cousin. ��������� '  . . Just at'this moment liis train of thought  was" disturbed by a voice ^ringing in one  ,of the olive gardens'a" little, farther up  the hill���������a voice that made the man's,  eyes gleam and his whole frame thrill  with animation���������Nella's voice!    He stop-  ��������� ped his mules a moment and, putting hisv  hand   to   bis   mouth  'so   that   the   sound  might.travel farther, cried:  "Nella, Nella. it's almost noon. Come  down'.-and you shall ride on one of the  mules to the trees, and we can eat together."  The door of one of the nearer gardens  opened, and Nella came out.  "No, 'Perio,"  she said; "I've eaten  already.    It's past noon.    Besides. I'm in a  hurry.    I'm going ti> sit for tho gentleman .who's' painting mo this  afternoon.  >   I'm going*up to the convent now.''  Perio's' face   darkened,   and   his   eyes-  took the sharp, stealthy look of anger so  little brings'at once to an Italian face.  '  "Does Loti know., you sit for'this English artist?"  "He knew I was going to sit." returned  the girl, "but what- does it matter to  you?" And she cast on Perio a look of  ill concealed contempt.  That look seemed to madden the man.  who suddenly flamed into a great rage.  "See, my Nella," he said, taking her  roughly by .the arm. "You would never  look at me or even dance with me. though  Loti is my cousin, while he is away, and  yet you spend hours sitting with this  Englishman, sitting to him halt naked,  too." he added, with a sneer. "Ah. yes,  I know!" as Nella started indignantly.  "The old man who takes wood to the  L holy convent told me. as an Egyptian  queen, with .only a skirt and jewels and  a gold snake in your hair.' How will Loti  like that when I tell him tonight?" Aud  he bent forward with a coarse laugh.  "Tonight?" she 'started. ".You tell  Loti. tonight?"  "Ah! I didn't mean to tell you, but Loti  is coming 'tonight. I know he. is. I  heard it in the town," and he pointed to  whore the white city lay at the foot of'  the hill. "He will be here tonight nnd  1 shall see him. Yes, and I will tell him  how you sit to this painter. Nella. unless���������  unless"���������* He held out his arms and the  revenge died out of his face. "Nella, I  love"���������  "You spy! You cur!" she broke out.  "now I despise you! You question the  poor old man at the convent. Then.you  threaten me and offer me your love. Your  love! .What woman would accept the  love of a reptile?" She turned and  walked majestically down the road.  "Nella!" he screamed, beside himself  with rage. ''Nella, you call me a reptile?  You shall pay for this! I will tell Loti  as soon as he enters the town, I will"���������  "I will tell him myself first," said the  girl, turning round scornfully. She  walked slowly down the road, and Perio  stood watching her, rooted to the spot  and mad with rage nnd jealousy. Was  it true? Was she afraid of what he  conld tell Loti. or had the old man told'  him lies? Ah. what would he give to see  her face! Suddenly, as if in defiance of  him. she broke forth into her song again,  the song she had been singing in the olive  garden: "Sulla, sulla labre. se potessi,  dolce un bacio un bacib!"  Perio turned white'with anger. "I understand!" he shouted hoarsely. "You  sing of kisses. You go to the kisses of  your lover." But she took no notice, only  walked on steadily, a queen of women,  along that dusty road. The man clinched  his hands and almost pushed the'1 mules  forward. He would take them home at  once and hurry back to the town. He  would see Loti first, after all.  Nella walked  on  in  the great summer  heat.    It did not seem to hurt her.    She  was a real child of the sun.    No heat was  too great for her, not even the heat with  in, which was burning fiercely iust then.  e Gnishod!"  * *  Nella stopped on the bridge as she was  going home half an hour later. In the  dim evening lights she could just see the  white water lilies at the edge of'the  stream lower clown. "It would be good  to lie there," she said, below her breath,  "so quiet and peaceful."  A little girl touched her arm. "Come  quickly home, Nella." she said, her breath  gone with running, "Loti is come."  "Loti!" said Nella, passing her hand  over, her eyes, "Loti come already?"  Then she drew herself up suddenly.  "Thank you, Gemma, for coming to tell  me. Go back and say I'm coming. Here's  my bracelet if you run quickly," and she  took (he heads off her arm and gave them  to her. and the child, with a cry of delight, was gone in a moment.  Nella walked down to the water's edge  aaid pushed the great rushes aside. "No  one shall touch mo again," she murmured, covering her eyes, "since he kissed  me���������he kissed me."���������Anglo-American.  "Perio spoke of love kisses." she was  thinking.     "How   little   he   knows   the  truth!     Gerald.   Gerald."   she   lisped   a  ,little over the hard foreign name.,   "How  I  love  him!    If he  would   only  kiss me  once!,. How easy it would be to die if ho  had once held me in his arms, if he had  once called   me  love���������lo  die"���������     And  a  tremor  ran  thromrh   her.     "Yes.   that  is  the end-  'I must die!    I can never belong  to  Loti   now.     I  cannot  see  him   nsain.  But he is coming tonight." as the thought  struck her.  '"Loti con-ins. tonight!   What  shall I do?    Whatever shall Ido?"    She  walked   slowly   down ' the   orange   grove  .loading ,to the convent door and tapped at  it gently. c .  '   ,  "You are late today. Nella," said th^  sister wno opened it.    "*-signor Vavasour  has been waiting for'you. Arc voir ill,  child?"' she added. "How white you  look!"   ��������� "     ,    '  "It is nothing, sister." '  "It is well this is the last'time you  come," the sister said kindly. "Tlie walk  here in the heat is too'much for you.  But make haste and dress "now. Don't  keep him waitinglonger."  Nella' smiled slightly as she' began to  take her things 'off: The heat was too  much for her���������for her, who had worked  in the fields' right through tho hottest  summer day without feeliug it!  Slowlj- she drdssed herself in tho costume Mr. Vavasour had chosen for her  as Cleopatra���������a costume which showed  her magnificent southern beauty to its  very greatest advantage.  ' "He must love me���������he must love me today," she whispered to the brilliant black  eyes that looked back at her from the  tiny glass. And so she passed into the  cloister.  ' Gerald, Vavasour, had elected to paint  her, and; to paint .her as Cleopatra, with  a great tiger skin at her feet, leaning  .against the,massive 'stone carving of- the  gray old cloister pillars.- And she certainly, made a vision of rare beauty as  she'sat as he had placed her, looking-  straight at' him, her chin buried iu one  shapely hand, the other loosely holding a  huge fan of peacock, feathers. ��������� And he, as  he looked'into those eyes,-which, bright  with love or triumph, looked into the  depths of his own, began to think that if  Cleopatra had really .looked1 so. then no  wonder that Antony sacrificed fame and  honor' and all for, her. ���������  \  It had been dillicult work to get the  priin' old sisters of the convent to" let him  paint her, there, in the center of their old  gray cloister, but no other place, had  made such an ideal, background, and the  promise of a large donation to them-  school had at length persuaded them.  And, besides,- was it not ^Nella���������their  little Nella, who had'sung in their choir  since she was a child, and whom they  knew tp,,be good and true? '   N  " Nella".'th'dught it all,over in a dull, mechanical sort of way as she sat and  gazed at the man she loved this last  afternoon. What would the sisters say  when they heard the end? And she felt  the end was close upon her. That subtle,  heavy presentiment'that sometimes comes  over us human creatures that a crisis,  the crisis of our lives, is fast approaching came over Nella that afternoon as  she'sat in her regal trappings aud put a-  wistful, prophetic look into thc-soft eyes  and took away her voice, and-she sat silent in all her glory.  - "How quiet you are today, Nella!" he  said gently. "Are you sorry it's our last  sitting?"  "Yes, milord," she. answered simply.  "Are you?"  He looked at her! What was that in  her tone, that new softness, that tremulous little break? And as he looked at  her he saw a difference, even from yesterday���������the. difference between the bud  and the blossom, the sign of that southern  temperament, that in one supreme moment changes the girl into the perfect  woman. And she was a perfect woman  as she sat there in half barbaric splendor,  her scarlet lips slightly parted, as though  she would speak, but could not; nothing  but the glitter of the jewels r,n her arms  and the flashes of her deep eyes showing  she was no statue.  And as" Gerald Vavasour looked into  those eyes he understood what had  changed her. He saw her secret, and a  great thrill swept over him���������she loved  him. this superb woman, this queen who  looked at him as a slave looks at its master���������she loved him! But his love was  buried in a grave thousands of miles  away, and an intense wave of pity overcame him, for the look in those eyes was  the look he felt come into his. own-'when  bethought of that grave.   ���������-  "Nella."'he. said, going up to her and  taking , her hands half unconsciously,  "don't look like that. I am heartbroken.  I never thought"���������  "I will not see you again, milord. Xo,,  I 'am not ashamed that you know I lave  you," she said. "Will you kiss me on e  before I go?"  Her fingers .strayed lightly over his  hair, and the touch of her soft, warm  arms around liis nerk held him for a moment, and he laid bis lips upon her f-iee  and kissed her again and again. Th--n  suddenly, as a rush of remembrance  passed over him, be put her back almost  roughly and. going to his easel, said,  without looking at her again:  "The sitting is over.

Traditions without number are associated with the oiigin of nearly every'musical instrument - iu use in China at the  present day. String and reed'instruments  such as were used by the aboriginal tribes  were the first known. Next came the  drums, which were first used to incite*  warriors on the battlefield to deeds of  valor. There are many' kinds of drums,  distinguished by ifanics indicating their  size and use. Stone preceded metal as a  mu^k'-al substance. In the 'earliest classes musical stones are.mentioned. Si.v.ceu  in number were hung, by- a cord, and ilie  performer pounded out the strains" with  a small mallet. The stones used by the  emperor wore made of jade.  Though with most people the t rum pet  has been given first place .anion;., metal  ���������instruments, in China the bell takes precedence. The sound is made by striking  the rim with a stick. The use of the bell  'as a musical instrument is, however.'  larg'ely confined to' religious services ancl  processions. Not unusually it is concerted with other instruments.      ���������    '    *  The gong is even more popular than th.'  bell. The- Chinese p*igs are of three-  kinds���������the, temple gong, 'the Sooeb.ow  gong,-which is shaped "like a,boiler." and  the watch gong, which is used<��������� to strike  the watches, or divisions of time. The  gong i.s probably the most conspicuous at  a theatrical, performance of any of the  various instruments. '.It is supposed also  to strike terror into evil spirits.  Flutes, fifes, conch shells, clarinets nnd  the reed''organ are the commonest wind  instruments. - The latter is made by inserting 19 reed tubes into the upper surface of a gourd. The rceds���������are. pierced  near the base to prevent the emission of  sound until stopped by the'fingers of the  performer.- The mouthpiece rjpsembles the  spout of a 'kettle and is inserted in- the  side of the gourd. The favorite instruments among the more cultured Chinese  are stringed: ' These include the she, the  k'in. which is said to "restrain ancl check  evil - passions and correct the human  heart;" the p'i-p'a. a four'stringed* guitar; the yueh k'in, or moon k'in. named  from rits moon shaped soundboard, which  has .four strings standing in pairs, tuned  as fifths' to each other, and the Su-chi'in.  or "standard lute,"' which has 12 strings,  yioluing exactly'the notes of the 12 Luh,  or tubes, invented by, Ling-lu'n.  From the beginning of the recorded his  tory of China until the, present clay music  .has at all times had an important place  in the political system of the Chinese!'It's  influence on the people and the fortninj;  of their character, either for good or evil,  has never been underestimated.

Whnl She Wanted.  They had just been married. That was  plainly evident to every passenger who  watched his tender, protecting air as they  stood on the corner waiting for the, car  to stop. She was a pretty creature, with  no end of fluttering blue ribbons decorating her frock, ancl. though the .car  was crowded, the passengers made room.  But only two seats were, vacant, and  these were far apart, lie placed her in  the most desirable one and then, with  evident sadness, seated himself at the  far end 'of the opposite' side of the car.  But she would not have it 'so. She returned his look of wisffulness and protested in a tone of plaintive sweetness  distinctly audible to" every passenger,  "But I want to sit next to- you. dear."  the emphasis on the last word beiug especially marked.  In an instant half a dozen men were  on their feet, which gave the happy  groom a chance to place her next to himself in a corner seat. Then she nestled  close to him. utterly unconscious of anything unusual in her expression of preference, ancl as his arm rested behind  her shoulders she knew that he was being envied by every man on board.

A  Cruel  Game  Played   In  tlie  Camps  of Cttnadin.ii Lombernic-i.  So ,full. of peril is the lumberman's  life that even his sports and games  must be spiced with danger or they  will pall upon his taste. On the long  ' winter'-nights ��������� a cruel game- called  "Jack, .where, be ye?" is frequently  ' played. ���������'  The middle of the largest room in the  camp is cleared. Two men are.������ccure-  ly blindfolded and,' having previously  drawn lots for the first whack, they  .kneel on the lloor. In his right hand  each mau holds a stout leather strap,  in his left another leather strap, or a  rope is held by the end, either close to  the floor or, .in some camps, actually  on it. Tho latter strap, being kept  taut by the combatants, guarantees a  uniform distance'between, them. They  are quite near enough to hurt each  other severely, which uot infrequently  hnj-peus. . _  ' c,  Now, tho man who has been lucky  enough to draw the first' call shouts.  "Jack, whore be ye?" to which his-opponent must immediately answer,  "Here I be."- Then the first man-  strikes at the place -where he imagines  his adversary to be .with the heavy  leather strap. If he' hits his man., he  is entitled to another blow���������may call  out again, "Jack.--where be "ye?" and  the other must answer. "Here , I be."  This is continued till the first man  misses, when he must take his turn  at being struck-.- ,  The others form a ring around the  two "combatants', bets are made, and  'each faction encourages and applauds  its' chosen man. There are regular  rounds, ancl the game.is usually kept  up until one or the other has had  enough or perhaps till -one is carried  off the scene wounded. Hard beads  can stand hard knocks, and volunteers  for the sport are numerous.' At the  beginning there is generally uo malice.  A hard blow is'struck���������it is expected���������  it is the game. But it occasionally  happens that the game develops int<\  a fierce duel.���������Pearson's-.     ���������  .  HIS START IN LIFE.  IT WASAGOO'D ONE AND WAS THRUST  ON  HIM  BY ACCIDENT.  CLOSE FIGURING.  IIovp a  "Woman' Up "he 1,1   Her   Rcpnta-  ,-tiou   For Economy.  ��������� She was" the wife of an official "of a  St.- Paul street corporation. Hormone  pet hobby was economy. Though her  husband made an,excellent salary, she  was,rigid in her rules' pertaining to the  buying ' of- the necessaries for ' the  household. ^ She would haunt bargain  counters and market stalls for hours in  order to get the benefit of a reduction  of a few cents on the article desired.  The corporation official,-with much  laughter, used to tease his better half  about what he called her "stinginess."  So one day, feeling hurt at his ridicule,  she resolved to take bim to market  with her and demonstrate beyond a  doubt that she was a. most economical  buyer. He consented, stipulating that  he was not to be asked to carry the  basket. ~  Arriving at the market, she made  several purchases, and then at one  stall inquired the price of eggs.  "What," she exclaimed. "1(5 cents a  dozen?    No, iudced. thai is too high."  She dragged her reluctant husband  after her from one stand to another,  still inquiring the price of eggs ancl always receiving tbe same answer until  near the upper end of the market.  Here she found a dealer who offered  to sell ber eggs in any quantity for 15  cents. To her husband she said, joyously:  "There. I told you so. Why. those  others were robbers."  Turning to the salesman, she ordered  half a dozen eggs, gravely handed him  the S cents asked in payment, and  went home, prattling away about the  worth of economy, in marketing and  the alleged willingness of dealers to  gouge the unsuspecting customer.  And to this'day she; does not know-  that : her husband and his -friends  laughed over it at the club.- ������  Man's Superiority.

Sliortsislitetl Real Estate Auctioneer Ha������l Not, ForsattejB  His Eyeglasses. __ _  "I owe my start in life to the fact  that an estimable old gentleman forgot  to put his eyeglass.es iu his pocket one  morning," said'a prosperous businessman from a sister city. "It's, rathcr-a  .curious story,",, he went on. "and till  tell, it as briefly as-possible. A good  many years ago, when I was a young  ���������"follow of 25 or thereabouts, I drifted  into Louisville in search of a job that -  didn't materialize, and the upshot of it  was that I" found myself practically  broke in a strange city. ,,Up ,to 'that  time I had always worked for small  wages and had never succeeded in accumulating as'much as $50. but'I had  an abiding faith that if I-could once'  get hold of a modest stake I could  launch out for myself and make some  money. '  "One'niorning, when I was wandering about with only two or thr.ee silver  .dollars in my pocket, looking for at  chance, to go to work at anything that  might offer, I dropped into - a big  do.wn stairs , room where some real  estate was being sold at auction! A.  large crowd was ,present. and there  was an indescribable feeling of tension'iii the air that warned me some-/  thirv;-unusual was about to happen'.-  "While  I  wras  standing  there,  only ,  vaguely interested, .the auctioueer.'who,  was, quite an  elderly  gentleman, "put  up a piece of improved city  property  and after a considerable pause .received a bid of $200.    I could see that the  smallness of the amount excited surprise, and  I was'also aware of a com-'-  motion, in   oue   corner   where.'half   a  dozen previous bidders were gathered  together  in "an   excited   "group.     They *  seemed,-, to be quarreling about something,  and  meanwhile- the auctioneer  was   indignantly   appealing   for  a   respectable offer.  ������   " 'Make it $2,500!' be shouted.' 'Does  any gentleman bid $2,500?'    He looked ,  directly at me', and I "made a gesture of.  denial.   _, 'Thank   you!'   he' exclaimed. '  greatly to my surprise.    'The gentleman  over  there- bids'. $2.500.. and,   if m I  can L  help it, no combination of buj'ers is going to be allowed to dictate prices jit'j  rthis   sale!'     With, that' he.- suddenly';  knocked down the property to me.   ���������     ".f"  " "No,sooner was this done." continued  the story teller.- "than a* great uproar '  of protests arose from the'group iu the  corner.    They  insisted  that" they  had  been given no chance to bid.1 but the  auctioneer stood  firm and, calling nie  to  the platform,   requested   my  name,  and address and a 20 per cent cash de^  posit on the $2,500.  "By that time I realized, of course,  that some extraordinary chance had  thrown a fine piece of property into my  hands at a fraction of its real value,  and I did some.quick thinking. 'I've  sent a messenger for the money,' I said  as coolly as I could, 'and' I'll have it  here in 15 minutes.'  _, "The auctioneer looked at the clock.  'All. right.' he replied. 'I'll give you  that limit.'  "Then I took a desperate chance. 1  pushed through the crowd, which was  already interested in the next sale, and  beckoned to a little fat man who had  been one of the loudest kickers a. few,  moments before.  " 'Look   here,'   I   said,  drawing  him  aside.    'Do you want to be my silent L  partner for an hour or so?'  " 'Wliat d'you mean?' said he.  "I   gave  him   the  truth  in  a  dozen  words.    'Now  let me  have  that $500  deposit  .money.'   I   added,   'and   we'll  share the profits, whatever they are.'  "The little man looked at me shrewdly.    'This is a big joke on all of us,' he  said, grinning, 'and I guess I'll risk^he  '���������(lc-nl/-'-      ������������������.'���������'-���������  "At  the "'Raine'"time   he counted   out  $500 and put it in my  bands.    I raced  back to.the de.sk wiih the cash, clinched   the sale ancl   before  noon   bad   the  deed in my possession.   Then, to'make  ,  a long story short,  my silent partner (j.  offered me $1,000 cash for my interest,  and,as $1,000 looked about as big as a,  mountain at that stage of the game, I  promptly accepted. That thousand, fortunately placed, icnve me the start that  has kept nie going ever since.  "But what about the eyeglasses, did  you say? Why. .the auctioneer, as I  afterward learned, was very nearsighted, and on, the morning to which I  refer he had forgotten his.glasses. That  was why he mistook my gesture of disavowal for a sign of assent and forced  me, in spite of myself, into a good  thing. I never understood the exact  true inwardness of the deal, but the  facts in the rough were that a clique  of speculators had formed a combine  to keep down prices, but. owing to  some misunderstanding, failed to bid  promptly on,the property which I secured. The auctioneer was on to the  game and anxious to break it up: hence  his precipitaucy in knocking down the  lot to yours truly. 1 heard, later on,  that my portly silent partner made $S,-  000 out of the transaction, but I didn't  begrudge him the money. The $500 he  gave me on faith that morning was  worth fully  10 ppr cent a  minute." \v- ^r^-vi'^fv- r*ig*'^'*M'g^^  gra-'W -^v * K!*?f^ -w-f"***-?--***'-;**'^^ *-**gse  j.c1Jf^i:i>....i*-i-4������.������'*arVU^M������>*  -ni-Vi"���������J    p.-jJ    ���������   ��������� I.1* i *"J������-^*-*-'  1  ��������� ���������*���������   I1'  -'   ,"  r  .1  l*'*o  I.

If the face of Rdch;u'd.-*Goodeve. partially hidden as it was by a thick beard,  had ehang-ed, the voice was .(he same,  and  the rec-jSni-tion was complete.  So instantaneous and sudden.was this  recognition, that the spy, was very near  revealing his presence by a cry of  mingled fear and < astonishment, .for  Silas, when questioned upon the subject,  had always spoken of his father as  dead.

Tal-ae ot a Kftmiliar Pact..  An employee of tho Chicago Tribune  once found tbe fact that his face was  familiar to the late Joseph Medill decidedly to his advantage. In the last  years of his life Mr. Medill did not  spend much time in Chicago and took  no active -part: iu..'the management of  bis paper, but when he "was in.the 'city-  he went to his office pretty regularly..  He knew, all the old faces, but few of  -the new ones, and it "was too date in life  for him to accustom himself to them.  He never knew to whom to give "copy"  that he wished printed, if the managing  editor happened to.be absent. On one  occasion be handed some to a representative of another-paper who chanced t!> be in tlie building. The man bad  been 'employed on The Tribune some  years previously, so. his face was.-familiar to ?dr. .Medill. while the faces of  tbe men then actually' in bis employ  were not.  One day lie suddenly inquired what  bad become of tho old night editor.  * "lie's in Boston." was the reply.  "Weil. I want bim." said .Mr. Medill.  It was explained Hint the man had  an excellent place in Boston and probably would net <-aiv to come back, but  Mr, Medill persisted that he wanted  him.  "I know him," be said, "and I want a  familiar face in that room. I want  some one who-isn't a stranger to me.  Telegraph him that Medill wants him."

Japan from  realizing- the full* e.\tent of her ain-  bit'on for territorial aggrandizement  in China* as a result of her victory,  the two'nations have been, on the  verge of war.. Yet, when-during- the  (icrce fighting, at the battle af Tien  Tsin", a regiment of Russian Cossacks  charged tho batt'e line of the**enemy,  driving thcCh'nesc hordes before  them, riding over them at a severe  cost to themselves, it was, the Japanese soldiers who ��������� cheered first and  longest.

Cock shooting in tall corn is as easy  to the expert as it is puzzling to the  novice. You will, of course, work with  tbe rows, not across them, and' if you  aro wise,-you will shoot at <��������� every,  glimpse of a bird' and very frequently  after an instant's sight of" him, when  you'eau only guess where he is. Sharp  work, say ye, my. masters.. Yes. in a  measure, but not so wonderful after all.  You certainly must be ever, ready and  swift and smooth in action, but .actual  sight of the bird at the instant of pulling trigger is not necessary.-  Green corn won't stop even fine shot,  and your charge will give a pattern as  big as a bushel bashet; hence the shaking of a leaf.' the flick of a vanishing  wing, are enough for the master of the  art. In an' instant his gun is on the  spot where a species of lightning calculation tells him the bird should be,  and tbe trigger is pressed without the,  slightest delay. Tbe difliculty with the  novice is.to get him to shoot at once Instead of waiting in vain for a clear  view. Experts kill bird after bird in  this way. The novice must dismiss all  Lhoughts of empty shells. No good  sportsman worries over misses, though  ho will learn from failures bow to hold  next time. There is no royal road to  success in the held. Nothing but experience really counts. So let the novice crack away., although be may only  get one bird in ten.1 We all know what'  he'll get if he doesn't shoot at all.���������  Outinc.  As to  'Ui.'*i-<)()kxMl  Pood.

Britain's expansion, has been easily'
the most wondenul achievement of a
wonderful' century, from the beginning of the nineteenth century to the
pret-ent time the British lilmpire has
grown from a. smaii slip ot tlie world,
representing 2,000,000 square miles,
scattered in little patches about the
globe to a' great kingdom of more
than 20,000,000 square miles representing almost ' one-fourth -of the
-world.   '
/Phe  detailed   story,  of   this   growth
would  make- a gre..t volume;  to give
a slight   idea of what  it means'is all
that  can be atiemptod in  the limited,
space of a newspaper article.
With the beginning of 'the century
the Union Jack was flying* over "little
patches- of Canada, over one or two
smali spots , in Africa, along the
western coast, over a few isolated
places along the. const of India, over-
a small settlement on the coast .of
Australia..'where it guaranteed protection to, none but a colony of. convicts. To-day these small and widely
scattered settlements have grown
into empires; the few small patches, of
Canada have been' connected, the rule

Frame has fa fed to carry civilization and advancement to the peoples
she has  subjugated.   "
For tbe past century the British
Empire has grown at the rate of two
acres of territory for every second of
the passing time. Jn population the
Empire has increased    '    from
115,000.000 * to ' 390,000,000.
In    .       connection    . ,    with. this
statement  of  population Sir.   J., Holt
Schooling  gives  some  interesting  figures  in -aii  article published   in  a  recent number of The Pall Mall Magazine from  which the-  illustrations  ac-

'1S00 a population 'of 100,000.000,  oi
which only 2,000,000 were white and
the  remainder     coiored,   or. in     other
words  only one    person in 50 .   was

company  has  surrendered   it's  government to  that  of  Britain and  our  beloved     sovereign      reigns     over     the

represent' only     the   great   gains     in
territory  by  Britain.     Her  /lag    flies
on   every   continent,   and  on   the      islands of every  ocean,  and   the end  is
not yet.
' The close of the last century saw
the British Empire growing smaller,
rather than larger. Britain, like
other nations, had held her colonies
for the aggrandizement of the home
country only. To this the colonists
objected; they desired citizenship
that meant more than the privilege of
paying ta~-\es to the mother country.
It was the'latter half of tbe new
century that brought the change,
though minor events had foreshadowed it. The repeal of the corn laws
��� of England and the instituting of
free trade meant privileges for

The Mystery  of Rntlinm.
The substance called radium emits
radiations resembling the X rays whilom the application of work or energy
from external sources and without appreciable loss of weight. This seems
to be inconsistent with the law of the
conservation of energy, but the mystery is "explained by the calcrlatious
of .VI.- Becquerel, which show chat" a
loss of weight so infinitesimal tbat in
a - thousand , million years, it , would
amount to no more "than a-milligram
would suffice to account for tlie observed effects. > According to this explanation the emanations from radium
consist of material particles. But how
infinitely' minute must those'-particles
be!   o ��� i'   <

to  tho 'Popoff system,  in,.*which     the
Russian   'Government      is   interested.

near   Kotka,   33   miles   distant,      and
with (-the   ice-breaking-    steamer     Er-
mack,  and  wireless telegraphy afforded tho  only  possible method.  Accordingly   the   proper transmitters and coherers -were installed. Th s apparatus,
says Tbe Western  Electrician, worked
well   "for  a  period  of 84.  days     and
-110 oH'-cial messages were despatched

'���made up of five -stones of the -purest
water,'.and on. the inside were the initials "B. P.'* The ring was a double
hoop of gold 'and had probably been
made to order.' It was lying loosely in
the box, and the box had once contained steel'pens. I argued that it must
have been some careless, person who
carried a valuable ring, around in tbat
fashion and that it had been lost by a
passenger who had left the train at the
I am only a fairly honest man. My
first idea was to keep the ring to my
own, profit, but I remembered that' 1���
was known to the railway porter and
that the property might be traced to
me. If not strictly honest, 1 am prudent, and 1 therefore gave up tbe. idea
of converting the ring. I would hold it
for a reward, however. That bauble
must have cost at least $000 and was
perhaps valued beyond price as a gift.
1 figured that Uought to get $100 out
of it.' aud 1 figured just what 1 would
do with that extra money. Half an
hour later 1 felt a curious sensation
stealing over me.r I began to feel sentimental. I began to connect that dear
little ring with a dear little blond haired, blue eyed girl. I got up and kicked
myself three times aud called myself a
fool, but the feeling 'did not go away
To my astonishment and indignation.I
found it growing stronger, and ^before
J knew it the grip of romance had got
me by the neck.
I was a man of leisure, though 1 had
no great amount of money to my credit. 1 would bunt up the owner of that
ring, and if all things went well I
would marry her. I settled on that
even as i kicked myself again. Common sense told me that I might better
fall in love with tho old apple woman
at the Waterloo terminus, but when
romance takes hold common sense has
to let go., For a week 1 watched all
the papers, but the ring was not advertised.- This seemed to prove to me that
the loser was either rich and indifferent to her loss or that for some reason
the loss had not yet been discovered.
Romance made me anxious, and L
therefore went to-the expense of advertising in five different .papers. 1 simply stated that a diamond ring had
been found on a railroad train and asked the loser to correspond.
Inside of three days 1 received about
150. letters in reply.' They came from
all .sorts of places and from all sorts of
people. The number of stones was
given all the way from,one to ten. and
aiinost every railroad in the kingdom
was mentioned. The 150 writers-wore
fakes and liars, aud the true loser had
not answered me. 1 was n bit nettled
nt this neglect on her part. She was
not meeting my romance half way. I
advertised a second time, and this time
1 gave date and day and train. Again
1 got a peck of letters, and at least half
of them were from people who bwl answered before. As none of them could
describe the ring I was no better off
than before. Indeed I was worse off.
A  railway official  wrote me that in
keeping an article of value found on
the line I had made' myself a 'thief and
that he would take great pleasure in
seeing me behind the bars.
I was now in love with the loser of
that ring. - Sentiment had' a firm grip
on me, and 1 got all sorts of silly notions into my head. I must see the affair to the end at whatever cost, and
the end, must be my marriage with thfr
fair haired. Beatrice. That was the-
named gave her, and I put her age at
i'y without stopping to reflect that I
was probably as old a man as her fa-r
ther.. A thirjd crop of advertisements
went out. This timeT called it a hoop
ring, and I got 200 replies from' losers,
of hoop rings. In sending out, the
fourth batch of advertising I described,
the ring with the exception of the ini>. -,
tials.- The replies numbered oyer 400-
I also got .something beyond replies. A
detective followed me to my lbdghigs
and was insulting enough to asl.:
"Look here, old man, what sort of a'
game arc, you trying to play on tho-
public with that ring?" \   .
"None of your business.",! replied ia
my anger at finding I had been clogged.
"But it is my business," he insisted.,
"I don't exactly twig your lay., but I'll
have an eye on you for the next few-
weeks and be prepared to make it hot��
for you."
"If you want'to know who I am, goto Brown & Brown, solicitors."    ���    '
"I'll   find  ont ,.soon   enough   without
���ixny help from them."      , ;   -    \
' For half an hour after he had gone I ,
was tod put out to feel much romance. ' '
but as .1 cooled off. it came gently steal-0
ing,back, .and I was more than over de-    ''
termined- to   find   my   unknown  iove.  -*,
.With that independence which should , '
characterize   tbe  actions   of- a, fairly ���
honest man I advertised for the fourth'
time.    This, time  I, asked   "B.��P.'\.to
communicate with' me,in case she had
lost anything.    'Aero were just 107, "B.. ���-
l\" answers, but among them I select-"
ed one which appeared to be. genuine*. ' ',

It had been lost on a railroad train and'    ���
was a birthday gift from a dead moth- "���*
er.'    I was asked to call at the chambers of a certain solicitor to have the   ,.
ring, further identified.    There'is noth-.
ing romantic about calling on a solicitor.    I bad been iu'hopes to be invited '
to a Sloan square mansion or a grand
country seat, and  I  was disappointed. -, ���
It  was quite   possible,  however,   that
the blond  haired  heiress  would be at.,'
the solicitor's  and   that all  would-be'    ,
well, and so I was on hand at'the up-   >*
pointed  hour.     So  was a stern  faced-    ���
and aggressive looking-householder, to-   .'
getlicr   with   a   slick   looking   villain , f
whom I at once spotted for a detective
and a young woman  whose hair .was
red   instead  of  blond.    .The  ring  was    -
speedily  identified  by tbe stern faced
man and red .beaded girl.   "B. P." was
Bertha   Perkins,  and   her   father  and
her.maid were'before me.   Perkins was
a country squire, and on the.night previous to my 'finding the ring his daughter's jewels had been stolen.   The hoop  "
ring was part of the plunder.
Of course 1  was ready to hand over'
the ring,  but it wasn't to stop there. < .
That red   headed  maid  was sure  she
recognized   me. as  tbe  man   who  was
hanging about the grounds a few hours
before tbe robbery, and tbat villain of   .
a detective was .only too glad to snap
the handcuffs on my wrists and hurry
me off to jail.    It took me three days to
prove  myself a   respectable  character
and an alibi.   They had to give me my
liberty,   but  it   was   grudgingly   done,
and the detective said he'd have an eye
on me all the rest of my days.    The
romance   had   departed   when   I   was-
locked up.   CI  came out of jail determined   on   securing   reparation.     Old
Perkins had helped tbe red headed girl
to conclude that 1 was the robber, and
I went down to bis country seat to receive   au   abject  apology   or   pull   his
nose.    He not only refused an apology,
but   threatened   to   kick   me   off   the
grounds,  and  the red   beaded girl  declared that I had a cast in my left eye,
and by that cast she would swear to
me in any court as a  man who would
not stop at  murder.     There   was one
more thing to be cleared up.   ,1 wanted
to find out about "B. P." herself.   Was
she the blond haired, blue eyed."girl of
my dreams, and was she worthy of my
love?    1  had not long to wait.    I  was
walking from the country seat to the

down sind rolled hie all over the road,      '
