The  night was dark ��������� as apocket.     The  gale was driving the ship ahead at  a furious rate.and^ the waves were  rolling over the deck and   tossing  her mass of ironjirdund like a cork  'When1 in Chatham Sound, which  is one o,f the most .dangerous parts  of' tlie coast, the'gale was at its  worst, and all'attemptsto keep her  in'the channel proved/unavailing.  At Yll o'clock at nigKt aiurious gust  of -wind, aided by 'fa* * mountain 'of  water, drove -the' big collier ' on.  Green 'Island,,''andV.after the ship  had. been" wounding about for some'  tirhe ,she became''wedged on ' .the  rocks.- ,.���������>-..*������      *  ��������� ,    ���������   r-  According-to, the survivors Capt,  Mclntyre'took matters .very cooly  and decided that owing to., the ter-  rificg'ale raging^tbat the safest spot  in the-world for himself and. crew  was on -the'shipV , When the hold  was first exarnined the~ship was re-'  ported'to1 be in; a ^comparatively  safe position,- and Capt.-Mclntyre  was heard to remark\that he would  <  -   ,j     -    .   - i_.  likely'be able'to floa* her off alright  at high tide, J At/midnight, however,  chieLoffieer Smith*, went below at  ,'the 'Captain's- suggestion and soon  hastened back',-with Ahe.an nourice-,  merit, that. the-' coal ,was  .pouring-  ,, ^ ��������� \ wjj- ���������> ''-, *.' ������* 1 - *-, ^      9 '  through the ship's bottom into- the  .sea.. - The captainjs'said:, "to,, have  r]a'ugh,d;at the '.chief oificer's'reiVort  and lo have''remarked "you are  frightened; we're alright."   - . -  The chief officer" then urged that  the "boats be launched, and the vessel abandoned to her fate, as in his  opinion she was doomed. The  captain, however, did not give the  order to launch the boats," at least  not, immediately on the' chief  officer's advice. * ._���������__  Whether the   order  was Isubse  quently  given  is  not   stated,   but  some tipae after that the men began  swinging the boats free and leaving  the ship.     The men seemed reluct-'  at  to  leave as the boats seem to  have  been launched  a  long time  apart.     The first  boat   got  away  about 1 o'clock, the second at 2,  according  to the story of some  of  thp   survivors, and  the third at 3.  The fourth boat  which  contained  the captain,  pilot, and the five of  the crew who stuck by their captain  and ship to the last, is thought to  have never been swung free of the  ship.  At 4 o'clock a.m. on the 3rd of  January, the Cottage City en route  North arrived at the scene of the  wreck. From a distance she saw the  fourth boat being got over the side  of the stranded steamer, presumably by the captain and those who  remained on deck of the Topeka.  A little later the ship being loosened from the rocks plunged down to  the bottom of the sea.  SAVING  SURVIVORS.  The Cottage City stood off Green  Island for four hours. She was noi  long in picking up the first boat  with seven survivors, and was  shortlv after hailed by^the second  boat with seven more of the crew.  After waiting two hours the men  who had been picked up informed  the Cottage City that they feared  their comrades who had put off in  the third boat had been drowned,  and it was little use waiting longer  or them.  The Cottage City, however, wait  ed for another two hours .cruising  about the sound until they spied  the third' boat with the remaining  seven survivors, who had' stored  their boat with provisions and pre-  pared for a long sea reach for help.  All about the vicinity of the wreck  was searched as near as the rough  r '  sea would allow, for the missing  captain and crew until the captain  of the Cottage City came to the  conclusion that the' missing* men  had gone down with the ship, and.  reluctantly proceeded on his, way  North. On the evening of the sixth  of January, the^City of Topeka was  sighted and "the survivors of the  Bristol 'transferred', to < that-, steam-  ship.        . .    lr  ,    t  ' The missing men are James Mac-  Intyre, master,-Port^Townsend ; C.

OBITUAHY.  It   is   with   regret  that   we  announce  the demise of   Mr  George  Norris, editor and proprietor.of the'  "Free Press," who passed away on '  January 6th, afler a short illness.  Mr Norris was connected by marri-  age  with a number of  prominent  families  in   Nanaimo,   by  whom,  witfcf his Jamily,   the loss  will  be  seriously felt.    His father   brother,  and two sisters are old residents of  Victoria.     Mr Norris   was a  prominent member of the Odd Fellows,  and was identified with may public  institutions.     At  the time of  his  death he was 57 years of age.     The  cause  of  death   was an attack  of  congestion of tbe lun-rs and heart  trouble.    Mr Norris had resided in  Nanaimo for upwards of a quarter  of a century.     The   " News " - extends the hand of sincere sympathy  to the family in  their hour of bereavement.  Mrs H. Smith, of Grantham, returned to her home on Thursday  after visiting her son who is ill at  Cumberland Hospital.  Mr John Kesley is back with us  once more. He has lately been acting as overseer of' the Alexandra  mines  which   place's   loss   is   our  gain.

NICKNAMES IN  ENGLAND.  its   effective  the   purpose  the wilds of  as well as in  Upton's  Typical  English  Home.  Sir Thomas Bipton, who is unmarried, lives at Osidge, a pleasant,  rambling, old-fashioned house, standing in a well-wooded park, near  Southgate, Middlesex. Osidge anciently formed part of the estates of the  abbots of St. Albans, which old-  fashioned town, with its venerable  cathedral, lies only a few miles distant. The house is comparatively  modern, boasting an antiquity of  only  about  a hundred  years. The,  gardens and grounds are delightful,  and in the park Sir Thomas has a  well laid out golf course, over which  iie amuses himself with his friends  occasionally. There is nothing pretentious about the house, which js  designed for comfort and convenience,  and not as a show place for the eyes  of strangers. Some excellent pictures  Nby Bely, Canaletti, Constable, Band-  seer, Marcus Stone, Charles Bcslie.

'ago I was a gay.- light'hearted youth in

.'distant oues who had lived for many
years in a small town in France.
"My uncle, as 1 called him out of
friendliness, was a kind, good fellow,
- , * well known and respected in the place,
where he carried on the craft of a.
watchmaker,'and he proposed that I
should become his apprentice and partner. lI liked the little town, 1 liked my
uncle; I liked my aunt, and I'soon gave
it " my consent.   They had no children���1

kindly soul could not be content without young people around' her,*" so she
kept and "clothed two house maidens,
children of some poor neighbors. Trim
- and neat they looked, too, wearing the
costume of that part of Germany from
whence my aunt came, a pretty fancy
-, of her own. It seemed quaint enough
in a strange land.
"It was a happy household. No wonder I was glad to belong to it. But,
alas, it was soon to be swept away by
terrible affliction! For some time we
had heard of, strange troubles going on
in Paris and the large towns, but our
little place was still quiet. One morning, however, we woke to.find everything in confusion. Our mayor had
been ordered to resign, and his place
was to be filled by some one sent from
Paris.
"Still, we never dreamed of what
fearful misery this was the forerunner.
We had no time to dream, either, the
blow fell so suddenly. There had been
a stir going on in;the market place for
the two days following the arrival of
the new official, but my uncle and I
were busy over a discovery which he
had made;in...bur..'.trade,, and we .were
less than usual in the streets.
��� 'At.'ndon joh the third day. however,
he went out for a stroll to rest his eyes

My aunt and her maidens arranged/ as
usual, the midday meal, and we were,
all ready to sit down, only my uncle
was missing. He wa^s usually so punctual that we wondered "and waited, and
at last we dined without him. At the
close of the meal I stepped out to look
for him.
"I had not got a dozen yards from
our house "when I met our baker's wife,
her eyes staring out of her head.
" 'Go back!' she said. 'Go back! It
Is too late. The monster, the wretch!
He has executed the honest man, without even the farce of a trial, on the ao
cursed guillotine yonder!'
j "I was petrified with horror. Could
she be speaking of my'.uncle, so re-
1 spected. so quiet as he was?    It was
j too true.   The wretch in office bad lost
J no lime.. but had  begun  bis work of
bloodshed at once, and my uncle was
his first victim, his only crime being
that he was of foreign birth and had
sheltered under his roof some months
since a poor Swiss. 1 .retraced my steps
to .the-.bouse.    My aunt's anxious face
met my troubled gaze.   She bad begun
to suspect evil.    The two girls waited
fearfully >n the background., I tried to
speak, but I'turned away and burst in-
-to  tears.' I was young then.'"Master
Landlord, and had t.-ais to shed.    My
aunt passed me by and rushed into the
street straight to the market place.   I
could not follow.  What happened there
was told me' later.   ' ''  ���"
"Wild with agopy at her husband's
fate, my gentle, loving aunt had burst
into a flood cf reproach of his murder..
In i those days this- was crime enough
for the'heaviest punishment/and before evening she, had fared the same

"The reign,of terror had indeed begun with us. Tho girls had fled, terrified at the fate which, had; befallen

'inVhalf stupefied way the same measure' when a knock came'at the door,

. "But1 the' third day argreat, stillness

to'live so long.   Presently, arose.an.awful-'terror lest this should be my sen-
tence-^-to perish miserably, for want of
food in this damp dungeon.    Death on
the scaffold appeared light by comparison."-   I clamored.at my prison door., I
shouted as loudly as I could, all to no
purpose., Then I burst into an agony
of tears.   My fate was too dreadful to
bear.    With   the  soft   nature of   my
youth  1 pitied and  bemoaned myself
sorely.    Ail at once words came into
my mind that I had learned years ago
as a text, in the school, 'Fear thou not,
for I am with thee; be not dismayed,
for I am thy God.' _
"They came like a ray of light Into
my prison," and I clung to the promise
as if it had that moment been made to
me by,a pitying God. I felt soothed
and hopeful, and in this condition I
sank back in a doze or swoon.
"How time passed I could not tell;
day., and night to me were alike in my
cell.-    I  woke  up  to  find  light  and
warmth and  kindly faces about  me.
Slowly I regained consciousness enough
to understand what they told me.    I
had lain five days forgotten.   The stillness I had noted the third day was accounted for by the fact that the news
had just reached our town of the death
of ono of the greatest leaders of the
revolution and the consequent decline
of the party.    In fear of his life, our
terrorist mayor had fled, and the old
mayor,  resuming power, had ordered
tho prison doors to be set open.   I in
my solitary cell had been forgotten, and
but that some one had been sent to examine all the cells and collect the fetters used therein I might have perished
most miserably.   As it was, I was carried, out perfectly senseless and brought
to life with some difficulty.   '..
"I am safe now, as you see, comrades, in my own country, but the anguish of those few days will never be
forgotten. I bear about with me in my
face the remembrance of it. Daily I
thank God for light and air and food,
and yet these good gifts of his fail to
make my heart rejoice. Still those
dreadful days in the dungeon have given me a firm reliance on his mercy,
and I know that I shall one day be
joyful again in the city of which the
gates are never shut and where there
is no darkness."

Good Old Tli.ngrs. '
Certain things are good for nothing
until they have been kept for a long
while, and some are good for nothing
until they have been kept long and
used. Of the first wine is the illustrious and immortal example. Of those
that must be kept and used I will name
three���meerschaum pipes, violins and
poems.   The meerschaum Is but a poor
"?Not every*Apache.can get his fill of
-blood before*sun up and his fill of mescal before noon. -Yet Coyote,That Bites
had managed to-achieve both those de-
.lightful'ends, and of all the happy savages on the Colorado desert he was tbe
most   riotously,   tumultuously   happy.
With what keen delight he had drawn
his,sharp blade across the throats of
Jose Sanchez and his wife after,he bad
stolen   into .their  wagon  in  the gray
dawn,   and   what  thrills  of  joy  shot
through his breast when he silenced the
yells of their two little children with
the butt end of their father's own rifle!
And  then,  when  he  had  taken  what
gold was in the Mexican's bag. what
mescal was in his demijohn, and had
strapped Jose's rather loose fitting cartridge belt about his sun brown belly,
with what fierce pleasure he stole away
from the scene of his bloody work and
with the Mexican's rifle on his shoulder had  w'andered far down the dry
arroyo, sipping from the demijohn the,
stupefying juice of tbe agave from time
to time until he felt that he was growing drowsy!
Then  he had dragged his uncertain
way along until he had come to the
railroad track.    He stared stupidly at
the bright steel rails and looked up at
the humming wires in an awed sort ot
way.    He would  like to lie there behind the rocks, he thought, until some
one should come along the track and
then try a shot at him with his newly
acquired weapon.    The demijohn was
growing light, and the rifle was growing heavy.   Well, it was getting toward
noon and  rather warm  even   for  an
Apxiche, and he would lie down in the
shade of the rocks over there and rest.
The humming of the wires is a soothing sound, and no sooner had his head
touched  the earth than sleep took a
mighty hold.', upon him and wiped out
his realizing sense of joy, as sleep has
a way .of doing-."with" everybody, that
has anything to be joyful for." And so
he lay, 'with the rifle by his side and
his  unspeakably  hideous  face  turned
up   toward  the  blue  that  arched   the
desert.
It was quiet there and restful���no
sound save the music of the..'wires.
Stay; there were other sounds, but they
came some time,after Coyote That Bites
had thrown himself upon the sand and
gone off to the land of Nod. They came
faintly at first and mingled with the
raurmurings of the wires. Surely they
were the voices cif children.
Had the -red beast been awake he
might have imagined that they were
the haunting voices of the wee, Mexican children whose blood, he had sc
ruthlessly shed that morning, but he
heard them not. They were very fai
from being ghostly, voices anyway,
those tones that now piped forth so
merrily;'as Dubs and Gay trudged down
the line.', They were walking to the
scoop out along the roadbed, not on the
track, for that was forbidden.
There were other things that were
forbidden, too, and one of them was
straying so'far away from tho station,"
but Dubs was "taking good care" of
his three-year-old sister, and in the
pride of his six 'full years he was equal
to the care of'half a dozen such as Gay.
" 'F on'y had sum matches to build a
fife wiv," sighed Dubs, "I'd burn off
vese prickles jus' like ve Injuns does."
"0-oh!" came ^suddenly from under
tray's sunbonnet.'  "Wot s dat?" . "
"W'y, it's,a"jug!" And Dubs left the
'toonies" and started toward the pile
nf rocks where lay the Coyote's demijohn and where also lay the Coyote
laimself.   ,, . ,
"The two'trudged up the-little slope,
nnd, Dubs .grasped the handle of the
I,demijohn, only to let it drop again arid
spring back quickly with Gay in his
arms,,for'be had caught sight of the
Coyote, and he was'smitten with a sudden desire to go home.,
tBut he saw^the Indian did not move,
and so be suddenly became ,very brave.
He was certainly sound'asleep and no
more to be' feared than,papa when he
lay on the lounge in his midday repose.
Then, too, Dubs wras quite sure he was
a "worky" Injun, like the'Yaquis. who
shoveled and  picked on  the railroad,
nnd so his mind became wholly at ease.
The  Coyote's  cartridge rbelt, ..which
had been* so loosely strapped, had fallen off and lay by his side.-There were
a hundred very interesting bits of brass
sticking /In  it.  and  the children''soon
had  the.se' scattered all'about'in  the
'sand'by the snoring Coyote".    In, the
scramble for her share of the innocent
toys Gay let, one, of, themdrop on the
Coyote's leg.1 Perhaps* the. moscalfs'in-^
.fiuence  was,-.on .the 'wane*,   for'a ���big*r
.brown knee���was thrust quickly up from,
the saud and'a big'brown hand clutched lhe ugly knife at the Coyote's side,
but'the hand fell'and, theA noble1 red
man snored on.1, '" '<,',,"   ,.
Dubs tried'on the cartridge belt and
became an  Indian, all'''but the indispensable .knife,  aud lie  concluded' to'
borrow that - from the* sleeper, whose,
fingers had lost their grip on the buck-
horn handle.    , "*~    " V       '     - .   4
, "It's1   bigger'n    mommie's    butcher
knife, ain't it', Gay ?"'the young savage
asked'as he giaspod tlie haudle of the
devilish looking liladc;.  "Now, you- tand.
over v,ere,' and I'll g6t''hind^viS'W0ck.
Ven you turn along,' I'll jump out and
kill you."              ,    '       -            - '(�����     -
Gay demurred.,''   ."  -ly               '   -������'
"Oh.   it's   on'y   make   b"'eve.     Vese
kind o' Injuns,don't kid nooody."* And
I     he, stuck a 'contemptuous finger toward,
.* (the innocent Coyote.   "It's on'y Paches
'at -kills,- ah', vey's  none  yound .here,
'mommie says.    I'm a 'Pache, so you
better look out."    '
It was a dubious sport for Gay, andv
when it*came-to the killing part she
screamed lustily.     . .
"You've woked him up an' 'poiled it
all,"' said Dubs in a tone of accusation.
"Now he'll want his knife."
^ Sure enough, the Coyote That Bites
dill shake his brown legs and arms
quite vigorously, but tho last two big
swallows of mescal held him down.
So, after turning over and burying his
hatchetlike face in the sand, he lay
quiet again.
When he had thus turned over, was
brought into view the rifle, which had
been concealed by his dirty blanket.
Dubs eyed the weapon wjth covetous
eyes. He could not withstand the temptation of feeling it all over, standing
it up on its butt and. trying to shoulder
���it, but this last feat he could hardly
accomplish. Just what it was that
kept his fingers offv the hammer and
trigger and prevented a sound that
would surely have brought the Coyote
to his feet with a yell, I am sure I'cannot tell, but Dubs played with that
fascinating weapon nearly an hour,
while Gay poured sand over the cartridges, hiding nearly all of them from
view.
By this time the sun's rays were on
the long slant, and the children were
very hungry. By this time, too. the
Apache was growing restless, for the
mescal had nearly lost its grip upon
him. A train thundering by, or, much
less, a "swift" brushing against his
black foot, a spider dropping on his
leg. or even a big fly buzzing at his
ear���any of these would have set his
demon force into play again.
Bin the children could not wait for
such demonstrations as these, though
why it did not occur to Dubs-that the
Coyote's ear needed tickling with a
grease wood twig the Lord only knows.
The wind .was up. and the wires were
murmuring louder than ever. The wee
ones had sported in the black-shadows
long enough���had played with the fangs
of. the deadly serpent until they were
tired and their stomachs were empty.
. So they set off on a trot for home.
Just as they * turned the bend and
came in sight of the low-roof of the
station a^."dust devil" swept by the
rocks where lay the Coyote That Bites.
He jumped to his feet, grasped his
empty sheath, gave a mad whoop and
started about in feverish rage. There
was his knife, half covered by the
sand, and there was his rifle, far.from
his side. Here was the cartridge bell
empty, and all about him in the sand
were countless little footprints.
A bewildered look stole over his face,
but it passed away when his eyes .rested on the empty demijohn.    Tho ex
pression that replaced it was one of do-
moniacal ferocity, and ( the lust ot
slaughter lay heavily upon him. But
the cartridges���where were they? He
saw Gay's mound of sand and. kicking <
it, gave a grunt of delight to see th*
brazen capsules that were scattered'
right and left by his foot.   '.   _
He picked them all up. grunting over
each one/ Filling the belt and grasping
his rifle, he started, off in the direction
in which'the small footprints led. Like
a   bloodhound,   he   chased' along   the r ���
j track.    His eyes scanned the plain all
every turn, and his breath was hot and?    ,
strong.    But  when  he t-urned the big*
curve and saw the station" he knew that .
he was' late���too  late���and  he gave a
grunt of disgust and wasioff like'the
wind over a side'trail that-Iikl toward. ���
the sunset! .    .   ,'    o * !    ",
' In the low roofed station house the*
mother crooned to tired little Gay,'lying so soft and limp in.her arms'.    She-
looked out'over the desert/saw lhe sua- u
touching-the. tips of the solemn giant'
cacti with purple dots/ saw the "prickly;

but she felt that she needed .not their,

You may find in the sea devil-a curious illustration of nature's system for'
adjusting reproduction. The cod lays
several hundred thousand eggs at in
spawning because nearly all of theco-i
must necessarily be lost while floating*:
on the waves and those .which hatch,
are mostly devoured. But the sea devil.,
which produces but a single young one-
at a time,,, rota ins the latter in its belly-
until the infant creature is from four
to six leet in length, so that when born
it is abie to take care of itself and,is iu
no danger of being destroyed.

Business took me to a little country   town   in  the   interior   of  the   state,  where I was forced to pass the night at  the only hotel that the place boasted.   It  was a cold, stormy night, and I thanked  ,    my lucky stars that I did not have to be  out in. it.   Some time about midnight  I  was    awakened   by   some    one   yelling  'Fire!' at the top of his voice.   The bote!  was nothing more than a fire trap, a fact  that   I  had   fully   realized   when   I   had  j turned   in,  and  the cry  of   'Fire!'   sent  I my heart into my mouth., Hastily jump-  I ing out of bed  and  wittiout  waiting to  I dress  myself,  1  seized  what  clothing  I  j could   in   one   hasty   clutch   and   rushed  j outdoors   and   joined   tho   guests   who  ; were already there clustered together in  i a sliivering group.

JOHNNIE DID  o '������������������O'x������,o,*������-0x������-o������������,o,������'0 ������������������������������������������������������������������Oix������������o,������*o������������,o":������-b  "Whatever , you do, don't .take tbe  12:10," Torn bad said when at breakfast Mrs. Johnnie declared her inlen-  t *���������        '  lion of running up to town;  "It's slow  r   and' awfully Gusty and there's general-  .    ly a rowdy crowd aboard. Wait for tbe  2:05 express.". ,    ' t.  But no sooner had Torn taken his de-  '    parture than Mrs. Johnnie decided to  '"- do-nothing of tbe sort.  She was a bus-(  'tling little body, forever on the go, and  when once an.idea crept into that clev-^  er little head "of hers she .was vnclined  ,,    to carry It .through to a finish in her  own particular way. /   >  Consequently Mrs: Johnnie did take  the 12:10 local,- and. within  five min-  , utes' time ��������� she was wishing devoutly  * ^that'she had followed Tom's advice, for  it was1'hot and dusty, and'they were  '    crawling along at a snail's pace, and  'there were some rough looking customers on board, and���������well, oh, dear! After  - all," Tom did' know"what he was talking about occasionally, x,  At the far end of the "car a young woman was sitting.  She looked so young  c that one might almost have1 called her  v   a .child in spite of the fact that her  pretty brown hair was twisted up on  the top of her head in a vain imitation  of the latest fashion and tbe (to Mrs.  Johnnie)r most atrocious fact that her  cheeks were covered w7ith rouge.  Mrs. Johnnie gathered her belongings  ' together and set out to take possession  of the seat'just Jn front of the young  girl, and then, half turning, she scrutinized the young woman at.her leisure.  She could do so without rudeness, for  'the girl was gazing out of the window,  and   her  thoughts   seemed   to" be  far  away. "It's a sweet little face," thought  Mrs. Johnnie, "and I don't care if it is  painted it's innocent and trustful.  Her  dress fits her abominably, but she has  a glorious pair of eyes.   She's a positive anomaly.   I'm going to introduce  myself."  The girl turned her head just at that  moment, and as their eyes met both of  them smiled, and each perceived for  the first time'that the other wore the  little silver Maltese cross of the King's  Daughters. They needed no introduction after that.   Mrs. Johnnie moved  * Into the seat with her, and they wero  soon the best of friends. It did not  take Mrs. Johnnie very long to gain  the particulars of her story. She had  never been to the city before, she said;  Indeed, except for some little .excursion now and then, she had never left  her home, which was in a little village  on the coast of Long Island. She was  bo glad to have some one to talk to, for  of course she was feeling a bit lonely.  Then she told Mrs. Johnnie that her  name was Daisy���������Daisy Hope���������and  that she was an orphan with just one  sister. Her name was Sophie, and she  was married now. They had always  been the very best of friends���������she and  Sophie���������until Dan Hackett came along.  Nowadays,   she   added   with   a   sigh,  ! Sophie bad eyes for no one but Dan.  "But 1 shan't mind it so much now,"  Bhe  added,   suddenly   brightening   up  again,, "now that I'm going to be married .too." ' .  '"Married!"  exclaimed  Mrs.  Johnnie  in astonishment.    "You don't mean to  tell me so!   When is it coming.off, and  What's his name?"  "Yes, we're going to be married right  away���������Jack and me. This isn't very  much of a trousseau, is it?" she added.  With an expressive gesture toward her  old fashioned carpetbag and two paper  parcels. "But Jack said that wouldn't  matter. He could fix me up when I  came to town. He told me in his letter  not to bring anything alorig; my country dresses would never do for New  "York, he said. So I've left them all at  home there, hanging up in my closet���������  all except my new pink one I got at  (Easter. It's so pretty I couldn't bear  to leave that behind. I guess it Will do  for the mornings, now and then.  "But wasn't it awfully good of Jack,  though?  He sent me this dress to wear  on tbe way up and this diamond,"  pointing to a huge brooch that sparkled  at her throat, but which Mrs. Johnnie's  eyes pronounced to be very bad paste.  "And there was a box of complexion  salve he sent me too. I've put some of  it on just to please him, but I,can't say  that I like it' very much. It itches so  and feels horrid.", Do all ladies paint In  New York?"  At another time Mrs. Johnnie would  have burst out laughing, but just at  present matters were taking too serious  a turn. Mrs. Johnnie was beginning to  wonder very much.  "But when are you to De married, my  dear?" she asked' hastily. , "You' have  not answered my question yet. And  what does Sophie say? For, of course,'  you've told her'all about it."  The girl hung her head, and MrB.  Johnnie could see her blushes even In  spite of'the rouge.  "You see, it's this way: Jack bates a  fuss and all that. He said for us^to get  married first and then let Sophie know.  That was'the hardest thing I had'to do  ���������leaving her without a word of good-  by. But Jack knows best, I suppose.  Only I wish"���������  "Excuse me, Daisy, you mustn't think;  me impertinent for asking- ail these  questions, my dear. < Is Jack going to  meet you at the station?"  ������������������"Well, no, not exactly.   He's bo busy  at this time of day, you know.   That's  one reason why he sent tho dress and  -things.   He said in' his letter that he  had shown them to a lady friend of his.  She's to'meet mo'at the ferry and take  charge otme till he comes."  - ','Oh!   And how,long did you say you  have known a���������a���������Jack?"  ,    The girl hung her head again., "I saw  him   first  about six  weeks ago.    He  came down on ono of the yachts.j He  came down-twice on Sunday after that,  and he's written ever so often."  Mrs. Johnnie .laid her hand tenderly  upon 'the young girl's arm. "And do  you really think, my dear Daisy, that  you know him well enough to marry  him? Wouldn't,it be wiser to wait a  bit and take your'sister into your .confidence ? ' Why not ask Jack to .wait a  year for you and then see how matters  stand? He'll wait for you gladly  enough if he's really in earnest.''  "Why, should I keep him waiting?"*  she answered: "lie loves me,,, Isn't  that enough? I love and trust him  entirely, and he docs the.same by me?  Isn't that,enough?" '  Mrs., Johnnie did not answer for n  moment.' Her lips were pressed tightly  together, for,- to1 tell the'truth, Mrs.  Johnnie was making -up her mind to  adopt a desperate'measure. This'.car  half full of men was certainly no place  for a. scene,'and-Mrs. Johnnie began to  realize that if she proceeded to do 'her  duty by .this little girl a scene was  bound to come. The train was just  slowing up for a moment at a ^little  wayside station.  "Well, my dear, I hope sincerely that  you will find it ist enough," she said.  'as she kissed him. "Just thank God  that I took the 12:10."  fTihite Lies.  , One' would hardly dare^ to*ask -a  friend to dine in so many words, cays  a writer in Thev Spectator, if it were  not permissible for him to make the  false,reply that he was sorry he was  ' engaged and could not come.' , ,   '  Ordinary social intercourse, instead  of becoming more direct, would have  to be carried ���������on by an elabprate system of hints;'otherwise society would  become, metaphorically , speaking, a  "bear garde* in w;hich sensitive persons  would be battered to death. It would  be-impossible to get used to being told  "I do not like you, and your friends  bore me," or "I could come quite easily, but I do not care to Identify myself  with the very second rate people  among whom you live." '      / '  Neither could we improve matters,by  reversing the ordinary procedure and  allowing the guests to. invite" themselves.    <���������,.,.      . ' '���������', '  The rebuff of being refused hospitality would be almost unbearable.   women '��������� have fled from the .villages  around into a remote district, whore  they live-singly in holes dug out of  the face of the-hill., They lead a life  of fasting, 'and_ prayer, and telieve  themselves called from the world,  which they think) is shortly about  to perish in a general conflagration.

"Hurry up, my child"' she exclaimed,  giving the girl a little push. "Here's  where we change cars, you know. Come  along!"  "But I thought this train"��������� .  "Now, my dear, that's just what you  mustn't do. Don't think, but follow  my instructions."  Eefore the girl had realized what she  was doing Mrs. Johnnie had bundled  her out on to the station platform.  The train moved slowly out. Mrs.  Johnnie watched it disappear with a  sigh of relief, and then she turned to  the bewildered girl and spoke to her  very gently:  "Let us walk over to the little hotel,  Daisy. We shall have to wait there  half an hour. Terhaps we can secure  a room there, for I want to have a little  talk with you."  In speaking of it afterward Mrs.  Johnnie always declared that to her  the walk from the station to the hotel  was by far the saddest part of all that  day's ordeal. It was then that the magnitude of the work she had to do dawned upon her for tho first time. Before  they two should be standing on that  platform again Jack, the young girl's  idol, must be shattered and thrown  from its pedestal. To Mrs. Johnnie  '.���������.fell'-���������the, task of displaying him in his  true colors, and, though it was a task  which she shrank instinctively from in  perspective, when the time came Mrs.  Johnnie was not found wanting. She  never told any one���������not even Tom���������  the particulars of what occurred in  that little room, but when the train  from New York came rushing along  half an hour later the semaphore was  hoisted as a signal to stop and the two  women stepped silently on board.  Both of them had tear stained faces,  but there was-no rouge on the young  girl's face now. Her hair.hung simply  down her back, and she wore her pretty pink dress. That night, when Mrs.  Johnnie reached her own home, after  quite a long combat with sister Sophie,  Tom was told just as many of the particulars as Mrs. Johnnie thought fit.  When she had finished, he w:as silent  for a moment or two/while he exhausted his stock of anathemas upon Jack.  Then, turning his attention to the woman in the case, he exclaimed, "Well, of  all the little fools"���������  But Mrs.  Johnnie  interrupted  him  suddenly.  "Don't call her that, dear," she added  J38 Polaris as <i Trip'*' star.'

Queen Victoria had seventy-four  direct heir:*;, and when the revenues  of her estate are distributed among  them no one will receive a very  large amount, although she was a  very rich woman. She had nine  children, of whom "six survive; forty  grandchildren, of whom' thirty-one  survive; and thirty-seven' greatgrandchildren, all of whom survive,  making eighty-six in all, of whom  seventy-four survive. Of the greatgrandchildren twenty-two are boys  and fifteen are girls. Six are grandchildren of the present King, eighteen arc grandchildren of the late  Empress l-Ycderick, eleven are  grandchildren,- of the late "Princess  Alice, and &1X grandchildren of the  late Duke of Saxc-Coburg. This  would appear to make a total of  forty-oncj but several are grandchildren of two of the late Queen's  children. Eight of them are direct  heirs to the different thrones of  Europe, and there are enough remaining to rule the rest of Lhe kingdoms of the world. Several of-.them  will  no doubt reach thrones.  Tlie civil list also, contains an allowance of xKOO,0Ob''f6r the Duke of  Cornwall and " ������90,000 'for each of  his sisters, the Duchess of Fife, the  Princess Charles, of Denmark and the  princess Victoria. The'Duke receives  about $310,000 a year from the  revenues of .Cornwall, which-makes  his income $-110,000.' Bis Wife has  an allowance of $50,000. The allowances to the. King's brothers and  sisters are as follows: Duke of  Cpnnaught, $125,000; Empress Frederick. ������40,000; Princess Christian,  $30,000; Princess Louise, $30,000;  Princess Beatrice, ������30,000; Duchess  .of.

How to Keep the Baby Healthy aad
Happy���Avoid the So-called
Soothing Medicines.
Every   mother  is naturally solicitous as   to   the   health of her   children,  , but not   everyone , treats   their
little troubles in the right way. The
so-called  soothing  remedies  are  still
used altogether  too  much,   although
physicians     have-  preached     against
them for many years'. 'The-fact that
they put children to sleep,is no sign
that they are helpful."    On the   contrary,  soothing -drugs are dangerous
and     distinctly     harmful.      At     the
slightest  sign    of    ill-health'   or  disorders,    give the   little ones    Baby's
Own Tablets.     The medicine is purely vegetable,    and   is .guaranteed,  to
contain     no     opiate '' or < poisonous
soothing -stufl.   For   indigestion, sour
stomach,   colic,' constipation/ simple-
fevers,   diarrhoea,'  the  irritation    accompanying    ther   cutting of   'teeth'
Inhere can be no better, no safer'remedy than this.    Baby's  Own'Tablets
are a ,sweet,     pleasant   little'tablet
which any child   will'  take' readily,*
and dissolved in water, may be given
with absolute-safety,to,the youngest'
infant.   Mothers,who have used these
.tablets cheerfully' testify to the .bene-1

CAUGHT A PORCUPINE.
J. C. C. Bremner's staghounds'killed a porcupine last week. Mr. Bremner took 24 quills out 'of the mouth
of one of the dogs and a large number out of the mouths of the others.
Somo of the quills -had worked their
way through the roof of the dog's
mouth and were pulled out point
foremost through the skin of the
nose. They had penetrated the"bony
structure of the dog's mouth and
nose in their passage. The dogs are.
very little the worse now, although
their mouths were very sore for a
time. Porcupines are very seldom
seen here.���Edmonton Bulletin.

He  was  successful to  some extent in the  charter business, and his opposition  to Premier Dunsmuir is" said to he  caused by the Government's refusal  to pay a large subsidy to a railway  company on  the mainland, which  had already constructed its road at  its' own  expense.     The  Premier's  action in the matter alone saved the  Province a large sum of money,  a  good  share of- which  Mr Bod well  would doubtless have received.    It  is  said that Premier Dunsmuir is  confident of ,a large support in the  Legislature, "and when  the , House  meets it will act wisely in supporting the Premier as no one can reasonably find fault with his conduct  of public affairs.
