The animal evidently-did not*  believe in immersion, for she resisted, bit'and scratched and used bad  language���������in the cat tongue of  course. Finally, the little boy,  with his hands covered with  sciatches and with tears in his eyes  gave up the effort to effect the regeneration of the cat.

Fish were plentiful and everything  was lovely. After, getting camp  in shape, Nickey and Jack pulled  up river a piece to   get the evening i  fishing.    The other two   fished   a-  long the bank near camp.     About  dusk and .getting   pretty   hungry,  they went up to camp  to   prepare  supper.       Mickey,   before   leaving  sticking his rod in   the   sand   and  leaving the bait out in the   stream  for any  stray  trout   which might  happen along, with  a   hunger as  fierce as his own.   He bad not been  in the tent long, before   he noticed  that o fish had hooked himself on  his tackle, but being   anxious   for  grub (did you ever see him   different?) and the   tent   being   a little  distance from the river, he   did not  trouble   to  go   down  just    then.  Presently, down came the other otwo  with the boat, .Nickey   standing up  and whipping the stream. Presently be spied Mickey's   fish jumping  to get. away.      "Pull   in   quietly,  *Jacky," said he, "There   is   a big.  one."   Being nearly dark, they, did  not notice-the: rod bending   like a  willow, from1 the    shore.

Abe looks as rosy and  hearty as a man well can and says,  like many more, that the experiment of living in the Old Country  after a sojourn here, is well nigh  an impossibility. What with the  crowds of enthusiasts anent  Mafeking and Pretoria days, and  nearly getting pressed into active  service a few times, Abe had a  hard time getting here, but the  welcome he had was warm.and there  are certain conspirators hatching  plots to corral him so that he cannot get away again.

They say they're going  to cast off the hawsor. "  This time Captain Kettle yelled back  '���������a reply "-You thing J" h8 cried. "Yon  :putty man, get back to your post! Il  'you want to live, keep those niggers'  fingers off the shackle. By James, if  that tow is cast off, I'll turn the Saigon  ���������for the beach and drown the whole crew  'of 3'on inside of three minutes! By  James, yes, and you know me, and you  know I'll do it too! You ham faced jellyfish, away aft with you aud save your  -blooming life!"  The man winced under the little captain's tongue and went away, and Captain Kotllo looked across the wheel at  ���������his assistant.  Cortolvin,shrugged his shouldfcrs and  .glanced backward at tho' beach and nodded. Kettle leaned across and shouted:  "I know it,,sir, as well as you do; I  'know it as well as they do, but I've got  a fortune in tow yonder, and I'd rather  ���������die than set it adrift. It isn't one fortune either; it's a dozen fortunes, and  I have just got to grab obe of them. I'm'  a married man, sir, with a family, and  I've known what it was to watch and  see 'em hungry. You'll stand by me,  Mr. Cortolvin?"  "It seems I promised. ��������� JTou know I've  been long'enough  with Mohammedans,  ���������skipper, to be somewhat a fatalist.    So  ' I say  God   is great  and  our  fates are  written   on   our foreheads and no-man  oan change by an inch the  path which  it is foreordained he should tread., JBnt  they are queer fates, some of   them.    1  , went away from  England  because  of  toy wife; I step out of  the  middle  of  Arabia, and    stumble across  you   and  hear   that-she  is dead; I look forward  to going home  and   living  a   peacoful'  country life, and now it appears I'm to  be drowned obscurely, out' of the touch  ���������of newspapers.   However, I'Jl 'be con-.  -sistent/ I won't grumble, and you may  < hear me  say it aloud, 'La Allah illah  1   Allah.' ������   ���������       '  '' Captain    Kettle    made    no   reply  Through the infernal uproar of the tornado he  did not  hear1 much   of  what  '   was said, and part of what did reach his  '.- ears l>was   beyond   his   comprehension.  Besides, his  mind was not unnaturally  ���������occupied with .rqc/re selfish  considera ,  ''   tions.    Astern, of  him, in the German  liner, were some ��������� thousand   passengers,  -  who were all assets for salvage.    The  detail of human life'did not enter much  'into  his   calculations.    He   bad   been  -���������brought  up  in   a  school where  life is  '���������cheap and   not so pleasant and savory a  -thing that it-is set much store on.    The  ���������'passengers'were part pf  the ship, just  ������������������as much as were  her engines  and   the  bullion  which   he  hoped  she  carried.  ' The company which owned her was responsible for all; their credit would be  damaged if all or a part of her was lost,  sand he, Owen Kettle, would reap a pro-  -jportionate reward if  he could drag her  into any civilized   port.    And when he  " thought of the roaring beach so terribly  ��������� close astern   he bit his beard in an ago-  -ny of apprehension lest the fates should  ' steal this fortune from him.  And meanwhile the lino of  surf was  -���������growing ever  nearer.    So  close indeed  were  they   to  tho  hateful   shore   that  '���������when   for   a  moment  the fountains of  'white water  subsided where the breakers  raged   upon tho   beach   they could'  laee dimly beyond through the sea smoke  \palm   trees  and   caibas  and great silk  cottonwoods whipping and crashing before  the   insane   blast  of  the tornado.  All   hands  on   the  Saigon's  deck had  many minutes  before given themselves  ���������up  for  as  good  as  dead.    Their only  -chance of  salvation   lay in  casting off  the  towrope, and  no  one  dared touch  the linking   shackle.    They quite knew  'that   their   savage little skipper would  ���������fulfill his threat   if   thoy disobeyed his  ���������orders.   Indeed old Murgatroyd himself  -sat ou the hatch coaming with an opened clasp knife and vowed death on any  one who tampered with either   shackle  ���������or mnuilla    The clumsy mate bad swallowed   rough words  once, but   he   preferred drowning to living on and   hearing Captain Kettle address him as coward.  The shore lay steep to, but the back-  -wash creamed far out into the sea. Already tho stem of the Germuu liner was  plunging in the whitened water and destruction seemed a question of seconds.  Then a strange thing happened. It  ' seemed as though the finger of God had  touched the wind; it abated by visible  . gradations, and the drift of the steamers  grew moreslow; it eased to a mere gale,  and they held their place on the'lip of  the boiling surf, and then with a gasp  it sank into quietude, and a great oily  swell rose up as if by magic from the  bowels of the deep,-and the little Saigon  ' forged ahead and drew the helpless passenger ship away from the perilous  beaoh.  Those tropical .hurricanes of the  ��������� eastern sea progress in circles, and this  one had spurned thetu from its clutch  and let them float on a charmed-ring of  calm.  Cortolvin   bowed  over  the wheel in  = silent thankfulness, but the shipmaster  rejoiced aloud.  "How's that, umpire?" said he.   "By  ��������� James, wasn't ii worth hanging,on for?  I've got a wife, sir, and kids, and I'm  reoiembering this moment that they'll  always have full bellies from now onward, and good clothes, and no more  cheap lodgings, but a decent house semidetached, and money to plank down on  the plate when they go to chapal on  Sundays. The skipper of that Dutchman  will be ruined over this last half hour's  job, but I can't help that. It's myself 1  have to think of first. One has to in  this world, or no one else will, and, Air.  Cortolvin, I'm a made man. Thanks to  McTodd"---  From   below  there  came   a   sudden  ���������whir  of  machinery, as though the engines had   momentarily gone mad, and  then   a bumping   and a banging which  jarred   every plate of (the Saigon's fabric, and   then a silence, broken only by  the thin, distant scream pf a hurt man.  Presently the boom of steam broke out  from the escape pipe beside the funnel,  and  a  minute later   the chief engineer  made  his way leisurely  up on   to   the  bridge.    He was bleeding from a cut on  the  forehead, and another gash showed  red  among   the  grime  on   his stubby  cheek.    He was shredding tobacco with  a  clasp knife as he walked aud seemod  rrom mm manner to   uo a man quite rii*  , vorcod from all responsible occupations  Ho halied a minute at the head  of   the  bridge ladder, replaced the tobacco cake  in the pocket of  his coat and rolled up  the shreddings in the palms of his crackled hands.  Then he filled a short brier  pipe, lit   it and surveyed   the available  universe.  "'"You'll be the tornado, way ahead  there, 'I'm thinking, " said he.  "Are those blame engines broke down  again?" asked Kettle sharply.  "Aye, ye may put it they've broke  down."  , "Then , away with you below again,  Mr. McTodd, and get. them running  ���������gain. . You may smoke when we bring  up the Aden."  McTodd puffed twice- more at his  pipe aud spat on the .wheel grating.  "By James!" 6aid Kettle. "Do you  hear me?"  "���������My lungs are a bit muzzy, but I can  bear ye for a' that, captain. Only thing  ia I can't do as ye'd like. "  Captain Kettle.'stiffened ominously.  "Mr. McTodd," be said,' ���������**if you force  me to take yon in band and show yon  bow to set about your work you'll regret it."   - -;  "Man," said the engineer, "I can do  gome kind of impossibeelitiea. Ye've  seen me do them. Ye've seen me keep  those palsied - rattletraps running all  through that blow. But if ye ask me to  make a new propeller out of rod iron  and packing cases I'll have to tell-ye'  that yon kind of meeracle's beyond  me.'\  -"My   great   James!"   said    Kettle.  "You don't mean to tell me the; propel-'  ler's gone?"  ."Either  that  or  else all the blades  have stripped off the bos9.    If ye'd been  below    on ��������� my   footplates,   ye'd   have  kenned it fine.   When it went those puir  'engines raced   like  an auld, cab horse  trying to gallop, and they just got tied,  in knots and turn bled down and sprawled  15 ways at once.- 1 was on the pTa'tform  oiling when they jumped, and that nig-,  ger second of   mine tried  to get at the  throttle to close her down."

Few bodily afflictions are more ter  rible than disease of the heart. To- live  in constant dread and expectation of  death, sudden and with last farewells  unspoken, is for most people more awful to contemplate than the most serious lingering illness. ' The slightest  excitement brings suffering and danger  to such people.  For several years Mrs. Gravel, wife  of P. H. A. Gravel, foreman in Barry's  cigar factory, St. John's suburb, Quebec, was such' a sufferer, but thanks to  Dr. Williams'. Piuk Pills she is again  in the enjoyment of good health. Mrs.  Gravel says:��������� ��������� ,        -.-,'���������  "My general healtn was bad,for sev-'  eral years, my appetite was poor, and I  was easilv tired, but it was the frequent sharp pains and violent palpitation of my heart whioh caused me the  greatest alarm. I tried many, medicines  and was treated by several doctoih, but  in vain. Finally I became so poorly  that I was not able to do any household  wcrk, and was frequently confined to  my bed." At the suggestion of, one of  my friends 1 decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. After taking a few'  boxes I began to gain new .strength  and vigor. ' The pains in ��������� my heart  were less frequent and less severe, and  in every, way. my health was improving.  I continued using the pills until I had  taken eight boxes, when I had completely recovered my health. I have  gained in flesh; my appetite is good,  and I am able to do ail my ' household  work wiihont feeling the awfnl fatigue  I was before' subject to. I am very  thankful to.Dr. Williams'Pink Pills,  for they have truly released me from  much suffer j ng, and I hope that others  may be induced to try this wonderful  medicine.''  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by going to the root of the, disease. They  renew and build up the' blood, and  strengthen tbe nerves, thus driving disease from the system. Avoid imitations by insistng that every -box you  purchase is enolosed in a wrapper bearing the full trade mark, Dr. Williams'  Pink PilJs for Pale People.

The form of the  first page was*  made up and ready to print with .the sin-'  gle exception'of a line giving the time of  the hanging.    That line was to be inserted as soon as the news flashed from Chicago.    Then  the form would be locked,  turned' over   to   the   stereotypers, 'who  would   make   a   matrix,   stereotype   the  plates,   rush  them down to the presses,"  and in-a,minute or two more the papers  would be in the hands of the newsboys  on the street.  About 10 o'clock in the morning,'how-'  ever, a boy rushed into the oflico with a  copy of an evening newspaper containing  an alleged account of the hanging of the  anarchists.  Cummings grabbed' the ,paper from the-  boy and rushed1 with it over to the operator.  "Look at that!"'he cried.  ' "They have not been' hanged," answered the operator calmly.- "I have this'minute been talking over the wire to our man  in the jail at Chicago, and he tells me  they haven't yet left their cells for the  scaffold."  Then Cummings scanned the newspaper more closely .and realized that it had  anticipated the news. He picked up a bit  of copy paper and,scribbled on it these  words: "Beware of bogus extras!"  "Here," he said to one of the office  boys. "Have a bulletin made'of that and  put it up in front of the office."  Then fo.r two- hours Cummings and* every one else- in. the office waited* for the-  news of the hanging.   The suspense be-'  came almost unbearable, for all the time  the rival paper was selling in the* st-reets**  and> the newsboys' cries came in through,  the  windows.    As the  time dragged  on  Cuminiugs became more and more nervous.   He hung around  the operator andi  asked' him l'OO- times if he was' sure ev-  erything' was all right.   His excitement  was intense.    At  last,  when the  editor  was so wrought up that it was not safe-  to speak to him, the instrument clicked)  and! the operator yelled but:  "Sir. Chmmings, the drop is falling!"'.  Cummings,   who had   been walking to  and' fto, suddenly stopped stock still.   His  form- was rigid.- His face worked; and?  hit* eyes blazed.   Then he roared out at  the frightened operator: -   <   ' ,  "How long does it take a drop* to* tail-  In, Chicago?"  A roar of laughter from the reporters*  in the' office relieved the tension, the operator shouted ��������� the exact time of the  hanging, the fort-man of the composing  room inserted the line iu the form, a(Td in*  five 'minutes the paper was out.���������Saturday Evening Post.- , ���������'  Japanese-lacquer ware-Hblack,. red1, green������-  ish   yellow,    green,    brown   ol!   various*  shades,   cloudy - light -green, dark green.'  and a- variety of other shades almost too-  numerous to mention.

Prosecuting* Attorney Wheeler Campbell was in an unusual predicament  Saturday. He was prosecuting a peace  warrant in the police court. One of  the. most essential questions to be asked on such occasions is:  "Are you afraid that unless this defendant is restrained by law he will do  you some great bodily harm?"  This question he propounded to the  prosecuting witness, who was a stalwart man,* almost twice the size of the  man he had sworn out the peace warrant against.  "Naw, sah. I ain't!" he boldly replied.  "You are not?" asked the attorney In  amazement. "Now, wait. Let me ask  you tlie question again, so you'll understand it.    Are you afraid of him?"  "No. sah, I a-ain't tow say a'L'red o'  dat niggah," he sputtered. "1 ain't  scar'd ob him!" .  "Are you afraid he will attempt to do  you bodily harm?" tentatively asked  the attc������uey.  "Not ef���������ef���������not ef I kin git a fa'r  sliowi'u at; 'im, boss!" he said as he  glared defiantly at the prisoner.  The spectators here began to laugh.  The prisoner's stolid countenance -also  relaxed into a sinister smile,..but the  witness contended that he wasn't a  bit afraid of the prisoner and didn't  seem to care who knew it.  "What did you get this peace warrant for, then?" demanded��������� the attorney.  "I jes' wanted���������jes' wanted," he explained, "fo' to show dat niggah dat  my 'tentions wuz peaceably 'uclined,  sah.'"  The court then asked a few questions  and found out that the witness was  afraid the prisoner would shoot him or  do Something of that kind, but he  wasn't .really '.'afraid" of him. The defendant was accordingly required'to  execute bond, and at the same time the  witness' reputation for, fearlessness  was unaffected.���������Paducah Sun.

I was going on a journey--���������going to leave  my home and travel alone for the tirst  time in my life. We���������that is, mamma,  Georgie and I���������lived on grandfather's  farm in New Hampshire.  Mamma had a friend named Mrs.  Wharton, who had been living in Boston  for many years, and she had written to  mamma begging that one of us might  pay her a long visit. Great was the debating as to which should accept tbe invitation.  Georgie insisted that it was my prerogative, as I was Mrs. Wharton's namesake. I rather think our new minister  had something to do in making Georgie  so persistently refuse to go, for good and  kind as Georgie was she had never been  quite so active until young Mr. Partridge  beamed upon us with his bright, black  eyes. However, it won't do to tell her  secrets without special permission.  Mamma had, given me a new gray  gown for Sundays and visitings. I had  also a white one for evenings in case I  should go to any parties. ' These, with  my two morning wrappers, were considered a very good outfit.  Georgie had generously insisted on my  taking her new black alpaca, her one best  dress, and leave my brown merino, my  last winter's garment, for her to wear  on Sundays. But Georgie was the soul  of generosity and would beggar herself to  do any one a kindness.  After much twisting and turning and  discussions as to trimmings my wardrobe  was considered finished and presentable,  , and I embarked on my journey. The  ride was one of long delight, for my passionate love of traveling had hitherto  been very little gratified.  As I stood in the railroad station at my  journey's   eiid,   looking   helplessly   about  me,  a tall  gentleman   with  a  handsome  brown mustache approached and, bowing  with easy and polished grace, said in an  inquiring tone:  "Miss Rose, I presume?"  I bowed in response, inwardly wondering if polite society required gentlemen to  address  ladies  at  first  acquaintance   by  ' their Christian names.  "My aunt, Mrs. Wharton, has been unexpectedly called away from home for a  few hours and has given me the honor  and pleasure of escorting you to her  house," he remarked.  My second reply was another bow.  Again I was wondering who this nephew  was. The gentleman looked at me curiously. Evidently he was beginning to  think me dumb, so I found voice to say:  "How is Mrs. Wharton ?"  "Very well indeed,' I thank you, and  looking eagerly for your arrival."  After we were seated in the carriage,  which was far handsomer than my country experience had thought possible, the  gentleman proceeded in his efforts for  my entertainment.  "Do you wonder how I knew you, Miss  Rose?" he asked.  "Very much," I replied���������not, however,  without qualms of conscience, as I had  really not given it a thought.  "I recognized you by your dress," he  triumphantly responded.  I looked down at my brown merino, the  subject at home of so much disputing,  and felt an inward terror. Was the man  a   medium,   a   clairvoyant?   Had   he   in  spirit heard my conversation with Georgie?  "My dress?" I gasped.  "Yes, your dress. My aunt informed  me that your traveling suit was brown."  "Oh!" I faintly ejaculated, inwardly  thinking how very strange in mamma to  write to Mrs. Wharton concerning the  dress and feeling considerably vexed  about it���������so much so that,the gentleman,  judging from my flushed cheeks that the  subject was unpleasant, pursued it no  further, to my. great' relief.  Presently the carriage stopped before a.  large   and .handsome   dwelling,   and   although I knpw, that Mrs. "Wharton was'  in possession' of a very comfortable. income 1 was not prepared for the elegance  I, encountered. '   *  My poor brown merino looked sadly  out of place beside the rich crimson' furniture and splendid mirrors, and had not  Mrs. Wharton's nephew made strenuous  efforts for my entertainment I should  have subsided into that most forlorn and  dreary feeling���������homesickness.   *  "My aunt begged that we should dine  at the usual hour," said the gentleman  after I had divested myself of my wraps,  "as she was afraid she would not be able  to return before 8 or 9 o'clock.' The  friend -she has gone to see, is very ill���������in  fact dying���������and Aunt Lizzie will probably stay until' all is over." '  "Aunt Lizzie?" I thought: "Has she  discarded the name of Rose?"  I remembered, however, - that her initials were R. E.. W.  The dinner was charming. My appetite  was good. I never had dyspepsia in my  life, and I ate the luxuriant food, so  daintily prepared, with an enjoyment that  must ��������� have been quite amusing to my  companion.  About an hour after we had sat down,  while we-were'leisurely partaking of our  dessert'and discussing the rights of women, the butler banded a note to my visa-vis.-' After .asking me.to excuse him he  opened and read.  The1 look of surprise and consternation  in his face was simply appalling.  "Has,  anything    happened    to    your-  aunt?" I timidly.inquired,, feeling uncomfortable  under- the scrutinizing gaze of  his dark gray eyes. '  "No, no���������that is, nothing of importance  ���������but I do not think she will be buck tonight. But, Miss Rose���������your name ie  Miss.Rose, is it not?"  I put down the*orange I was peeling  and looked-the amazement I felt.  "My name is Miss Rose Terry," I replied, with as much dignity as I could assume. ���������      "    *  "Yes���������certainly���������I beg your pardon-  but Miss Rose���������Miss Terry, I mean���������you  will make yourself comfortable for the  night���������until .my aunt returns, I should  say." A .     ��������� :  His confusion seemed very strange after his late self possession, but attributing  it aUt-to the contents of the note���������alas. I  did not then dream of the information it  contained!���������I endeavored to make the  best of it and told him not to be .uneasy,  as I, had no doubt but that Mrs.': Wharton  would return early in the morning., . ,��������� r  ' Books and* music formed the principal  subjects of converisation during the few  hours I passed , with ' Mrs. Wharton's  nephew, and so pleasant and agreeable  did he prove that I began to like him  very much and quite forgot/my embarrassment at remaining so long alone with  a stranger.  At breakfast "next morning we chatted  away like old friends, but when the meal  was over my companion asked me to  walk into the library for a few moments.  I complied with the request, made rather gravely, feeling a sensation pass  through me that something was going to  happen. *  "Please be seated, Miss Terry," he began. "I regret that I am obliged to explain a very strange mistake, and I beg  your pardon for keeping you in ignorance  through last evening: but, believe me! I  did so only because I wished you to have  a pleasant and comfortable rest after  your long journey."  I could say nothing to this preparatory  speech, for my heart was. throbbing at  such a .furious rate I dared not trust my  voice.  "My aunt," he continued, "expected a  lady friend named Miss Annie Rose to  arrive yesterday, and, being called from  home unexpectedly, she commissioned me  to be her escort from the railroad station  to the house. She spoke-of Miss Rose's  traveling dress being brown, and hence  my mistake in accosting you. The note I  received last evening apprised me of my  error, for in it Aunt Lizzie informed me  that Miss Rose, learning of the illness of  Mrs. Talmage, had arrived by an earlier  train and gone directly to the house or  Mrs. Talmage so that she might see her  friend once more while alive. If you will  accept my apologies for causing you this  inconvenience and delay in your plans, I  will be truly grateful for your forbearance and will do all in my power to rectify my mistake as speedily as possible."  What could I say? He was so sincerely sorry I could not find fault with him.  With hot cheeks I explained my part in  the misunderstanding.  "My friend is Mrs. Rose Wharton. She  lives on Charles street.   If you will"���������.  "I will deliver you safely into her  hands, Miss Terry," he interrupted, "and  will immediately order the carriage. But  first I must thank you for your goodness  in so readily granting pardon for my inadvertence."  When we arrived at Mrs.-Rose'Wharton's door, he turned to me, and, taking  my hand, said:  "Miss Terry, you have shown me great  mercy. Will you add to your favors one  more kindness and grant me permission  to call this evening and renew the acquaintance which, although commenced  under such untoward circumstances, has  yet afforded me much happiness?"  The look which accompanied these  words was so beseeching that my heart  yielded and I murmured an almost inaudible "Yes," which favor he acknowledged by a slight pressure of my hand.  Mrs. Wharton and I had a hearty  laugh over my adventure and when he  called that evening she was completely  charmed with both his manner and appearance.  The     acquaintance/    commenced     so  strangely, progressed rapidly, and before  my visit was half over I had good reason  to hug my bid brown merino with a  grateful heart for being the unconscious  means of bringing nie so much happiness.  I afterward had the pleasure of seeing  Miss Annie Rose's, brown suit. Need I  say it was as far superior to mine as a  brand new $3 a yard material could be* to  a 75 cent merino which was in its second  season?  "Never mind," said my lover, as I  pointed out the difference.

' The Chilean provinces of Atacama, Ta-  rapaca and Tocna are in tbe rainless region, or desert country west of tbe Andes, and are entirely devoid of vegetation. The winds in all of this region are  from the east and .in passing-over theele-  vated perpetual snows-of the Andes are  stripped of their moisture and arrive 'on  the coast perfectly dry.  The lust rain, a slight shower 'which  fell in Antofugusta. in Atacama province,  was the first rain which had fallen inl-J  years. The last ruin which fell in Iqui-  que. iu Taracama province, was the first  in 24 years. With both of these showers  a notable phenomenon occurred. The bare  hills back of these cities assumed a green  tint from a little plant which sprang up  almost in a night.  The query is. From where did this plant  come? The whole of the coast presents a  most dismal and discouraging appearance  from the sea, but the climate is healthy,  being especially, adapted to pulmonary  and, throat,troubles from its extreme dryness and freedom from germs. The heat  is modified by a local sea breeze, and the  sea bathing is most invigorating, as the  watiM- is cold.  The Rev.

A traveler recently returned from Japan tells that in that quaint country  trained insects are kept in cages as singing "birds."  ��������� Fireflies and crickets are often found,  but an especial favorite is the singing  frog. A rare one belongs to a lady of the  Japanese court. It is highly accomplished, as it has been in training for seven  years. It sings beautifully and will do so  even in the presence of strangers. In the  winter it hibernates. During its long  sleep its bed is a jar full of tiny stones.  Over the jar is fitted a covering of straw  rope as a protection against cold. These  frogs are delicate creatures and are very  sensitive. They show great affection to  those who treat them kindly.  Growth off Pity.'  No one .formerly looked on with any  pity or even horror at punishments which  are now found too dreadful for description. Men were broken on the wheel  were burned at the stake, were rucke-u.  were cut up alive. No one seems to have  felt any pity for their agonies. Men wore  put into noisome prisons, where, with  bad air and. insufficient food, they died unnoticed and unpitied. It is very different  now. Human hearts are more tender.*���������  Chicago News.

I  made a jump for it, and I was surprised I had not broken any of my limbs,  and I can assure you I lost no time in  getting away. Well, there was a barbed wire fence in the path, and I got  tied up in that with two more fellows. A bullet came, and broke the  wire, and released us. Several men  were shot in this fence."

Some amusing stories   of   our   irrepressible   Irishmen    at   the front are  related in a letter by Sergt.   Medland  Newsham, D.L.Li., to his  parents   at  Northampton.    He   writes:    "In   the  Colenso fight one   of   the   officers   of  the Dublins went down off   the   lines  and saw the chief cook there fighting  and fixing away with the best of them.

They went back three miles,   got   the  pots, and started   boiling them, when  a shell biew all their constructions  to  pieces.    The poor 'Dubs' got no coffee  that  day.

A scientist of some standiner asserts  that chemically pure water is poison  to the human stomach, upsetting  some hitherto accepted theories regarding distilled water by the argument that in distillation the water  loses sundry salts that it greedily abstracts from the animal tissues when  it is swallowed, thus constituting a  protoplasmic poison.

Two' Manohus  who arrived at Shanghai   certify to  the truth that the Prince Tuan visited the palace and offered the Emperor and Dowager the   alternative  of poicon or the sword.      Tlie   Emperor took poison and  died   within  an hour. Dowager al'sochoosc poison, but craftly   swallowed   only   a  portion of what was offered her and ���������'  survived.    On   same   day Chinese  Customs   Bureau   was   destroyed,  intense indignation felt  in  Shanghai against supposed action of powers in re-training Japan from sending army to Pekin immediately.

If <lou<rh ia  placed in the oven before it is sufficient  ly "proofed," the bread' will be close-  grained or heavy.    If the temperature  of the oven is too low, then soggy bread  results; if overheated the crust will form  too quickly becoming hard, thus preventing the escape of water.' The result ih  an "underbaked" loaf.   The right tern-  , perature and medium-sized loaves result  in <rach a penetration'of the heat through  the loaves as to delay the baking of the  crust until the necessary changes have  been made.   To test the oven, throw on  its floor a tablespoonful of fresh flour.  If it takes fire or burns black quickly  the oven is overheated and must be al  In-wed   to  cool.    If   the   flour remains*  white after a few seconds the temperature is too low.   If the(oven is right the  flour will turn a blackish or brownish  yellow and look slightly scorched.  In the large cities there are immense  , bakeries   where  machinery   and   reel  ovens are employed in, bread making.  This reduces the cost tothe consumers,  ��������� who will'ere long-be able to buy,   if  they are not already', bread as cheap as  they can make it at _ home, taking fuel  and labor aud less from bad bakers of '  bread in to account.    In the large bakeries the dough is mixed in huge oval l  tuba-.of oak .which hold- five bai-rels or  I.D00 pounds of flour made into dough,  v l.ich is worked by' machinery.    The  ru   is elevated on a platform so, as to  ��������� ���������oi uiit the working of revolving steel  biadea.    Three men are thus enabled to  work up in one day ..without touch 'oi  hand 150 barrels of flour, which if done  Li the ordinary or old method by hand  would require the" 'services of   thirty  aien.     A huge lump 'of   twenty-fou*  pounds of dough is cut by machine in 9  few seconds into twelve loves.

There is  for instance, a word whioh I wish'I could  recall, but T can't, wjuicb was in some  way originally impressed upon my mind,  with an added letter ,jt ie a word that is  uoiap.'iratively in common use. ,1 grew  up carrying that additional letter in the  word aiid never'thinking but that I had  it right.' I have uo doubt that I had  s'oeu thia word in 'print' time and again  in its correct form, but the absence there  of tbe letter which I had in the word io  my mind had never struck me. One  day,   however, it did , strike me. very  Slainly, and the word then looked so  iffereut from the one to.which 1'wae  tnentidly aecust baited," -that at'first 1  '-choujrhr'that it was misspelled, as I saw  ������t in print, but/ I very quickly Ax*  f-ovt-'ml that it ' was ' spoiled there  correctly.

"Another acquaint Alice teli*- me that  for some time in his youth he carried  the word dislocate in his mind as dis  colate.

On the ridge between  her and the west she saw the two long  shafts of^ a tilted . roller standing up  dark, gaunt. The sight made her suddenly afraid. She thought of her father. Was it he who had been working with the roller���������who had left' lt  there an hour since? She paused with  a beating heart.  After a little she opened tbe gate  and slipped quietly through, holding,it  carefully In her hand as she turned to  fasten it. She remembered how it always swung to the post with a clap,  and, though she' was far from the  bouse, she shrank from making %  noise.- Then she turned up the hilly  ��������� road.  When she'came out< upon the bare,  uplands, they were flooded with uncanny light. It dazzled Janet so that  she could scarcely see the house lying  ,* straight before her. Hei; whole body  felt how visible to the farm folk it  must be, coming on illumined in the  yellow glare. She cowered so closely  to tbe stunted hedge that the straggling brambles tugged at her. A burst  of terrible splendor came athwart the  world, au awful dying gloom. Far and  wide flamed the red and silent moors  like altars lighted for the end of time.  Janet crept on, feeling mean and little  In the great desolation.  At last she stood within the long  shadow that was cast toward her by  the house. So dark and silent wore  the buildings that her heart stopped  beating with a sudden dread. But  presently a familiar sound fell on her  ear, and she breathed with relief on  looking round. Over in. the little croft  the ducks were waddling home, late  as usual, and clattering away to themselves. When the drake .stood up and  flapped his wings, the white round of  bis breast shone "vividly.  The farm road led to the square close  at the back of the dwelling house. The  front was to thec sunset. Janet stole  to the corner of the barn and peered  down through the shadows to the  kitchen door. She was shaking with  fear. Her father bad threatened that  If ever she came back he would hound  the dog at her. She hoped it would  not be a new dog. Baldy, she knew,  would not bite her. The tall white  wooned pump glimmered like a ghost  in the gloom. She remembered every  feature of the place as if it were yesterday she went away. Yet she felt  she was looking at it athwart an eternity. The double feeling of familiarity and strangeness made her conscious  of her physical abasement. Everything, at home was the same. It was  she who was different', different.  A stall tied cow lowed loudly In the  empty byre, and the mournful sound  was echoed by the gaunt buildings.  Janet shivered and drew her poor  shawl about her shoulders. At last  she ventured out, creeping down the  close on her tiptoes tremblingly.  When she reached the step of the back  door, she stood and listened for a  sound within. The house was silent  as death.  Twice she raised her hand to knock,  and twice she let it fall in cowardice.  Then self pity came over her with a  burst in the throat, and her lips whispered in dull repetition: "Oh, it's a pity  o' me! It's a pity o' me! My God, aye!  It's a gevan pity o' me!" She knocked  faintly. There was no response. As  she craned to listen she heard the old  fashioned kitchen clock tick with a  dreary loudness.  She knocked again. The scrunt of a  chair being pushed backward on the  stone floor made the blood prick her  veins suddenly. A silence followed  and then the shuffle of slippered feet  coming slowly.    Would it  De her fa-  I ther?   And would he curse her?  tongue was dry in her mouth.  A bolt clanked to the wall, the door  creaked on its hinges, and* somebody  peered out at her, hand over eyebrows.  "It's you!" said her mother at last.  The woman stared at her daughter  for awhile and then turned away without a word, leaving the door open behind her. Janet followed to the kitchen with a timordus���������foot that, was ready  to start backward.1 ^But her father'Was  Bot In the kitchen.  There was a strange.* stillness. The.  rk'h light came streaming through th*  bare window and fell full upon the  dresser. The dishes shone weirdly  against it. There on its old hook  Janet's mug was still hanging, her  name on it. With a sudden stab of  memory she thought of the night her  father had brought it home to her frpm  the winter fair at Carbie, coming jn  from the wonderful 'darkness, with  ���������nowflakes on his coat, to his little girl  by the great fire; how blithe.hau oeen  his dark eye, how cheery and red the  middle of his cheek. She could still  feel his'finger rough and'cold beneath  her chin and the benediction of his  eyes looking down at" her. . But now���������  ah, Christ!  Mrs. Goudie had put away in the  window sill her great Bible and her  heavy white rimmed spectacles a-top  of it.   Janet was still standing.  "Sit doun," said her mother carelessly.  Janet sat down on the edge of a  chair.close to the-*door. -;Rab,.the,cat  she had feared,'was sitting near her iu  a blank band of sunshine lying  athwart the flags, his legs-propped in  front of him like two furry little pillars, his gray golden slits of eyes fixed  on the window. Janet, feeling the constraint of the silence, put out her band  and, not daring to speak aloud, said  "Bab!" in a choking whisper. Rab  turned and looked at her carelessly  through his half shut eyes. Then he  rose and walked, with lazy stretchings  of the hind legs, away over to the  hearth. There he sat down and stared  up at a blue wisp of flame blinking-in  the grate. The monotonous tick of the  clock was the only sound in the wide  kitchen.  Mrs. Goudie stood with her hand on  the back of a chair. At first her eyes  gazed before her with tbe wide look'of  a proud anger, and her mouth was  hard. The glow fell upon her withered  face and revealed' its dark and stern  nobility. Presently her eyes narrowed  and went away, and she seemed to -be -  musing. Then a strange4 smile that  was not pleasant to look at appeared  about the corners of her mouth. But  she did not speak.  The light became more unearthly.  "I declare," .said Mrs. Goudie suddenly, with a false shrillness of voice  that made Janet wince; "I declare, it's  like the day o' judgment, tnis." The  smile never left her lips.  Again was appalling silence. The  clock seemed to be ticking more and  more loudly. As Janet listened to its  slow metallic beat her heart-sank lower in her breast. Where could her father be? He was so seldom out of the  kitchen at the gloaming. She turned  her head to see .what o'clock it was.  The old yellow dial was shining with  eerie vividness.  All this time her mother had given  no sign either of pity or resentment.  Buiv-  "Well," she said at last, always with  that ironic edge on her voice; "well, wo  had better gang butt the hoose, d'ye no  think?"  Janet rose passively- without speaking. Now that her ordeal had come  she was too feeble to be sharply afraid.  She felt herself borne onward like a  creature in the clutch of fate. She  was going to meet her father. A bare  lobby with whitewashed walls ran  from the front door between the kitchen and the parlor. A shaft of yellow  light struck in through an oblong slit  of glass above the door, falling straight  upon a row of pegs. On one of these  was the farmer's everyday hat, a  square hard felt, green gilt at the sides  with age. The level rays revealed n  thick coating of dust on it.  The mother opened the room door,  which fell to the right, and then stopped, speaking over her shoulder.  "We've made changes here," she said  shrilly, as if showing alterations to a  stranger. She pointed to a bed, the  curtained head of which was close to  the door on the left. Janet had begun  to tremble.  She followed her mother into the  room. At first she could see nothing  because of the invading glory.  "There's your fether!" said Mrs.  Goudie.  Janet turned her eyes from the light,  and there lay her father in his shroud  beneath the full glow of sunset.  The clock ticked loudly in the  kitchen.  A   fringe  of  sandy   whiskers  stuck  oxit from the tight jaw bandage. There  were vivid hairs in it, redly gleaming.  Janet's knees were water below her.  She sank by the bed.  "Fether!" she panted, with open  mouth and unstrung lips. "Fether!"  and then with a shrill scream of anguish: "Oh, God; My fether! My fether!   My fether!"  "A-hey," said her mother, "that's  what ye brocht your fether till!" On  an April morning three and twenty  years ago this woman had felt a thou  sand pulses leap and throb within her  when a feeble little cry told that from  her body^ a living soul had come into  the world���������ah, mystic wonder!���������a newborn soul and from' her body and the  child of the man she loved. But that  child had broken tne heart of the man  she loved, arid she was merciless.  Suddenly  a  blatant   low  from    the  great empty byre echoed through the  .silence.hollowly, and again there was  siience.  The somber radiance deepened in the  room. The brass knobs at .the. bead of  the bed gleamed mournfully.  "Speak to me, fether!" whispered  Janet! "Speak to me, fether! Speak  to me!"  But he lay with closed eyes in the  lonely light, and it seemed to Janet  that his shut lips smiled���������smiled with  the quiet irony of the dead, who know  the secrets of all things and will tell  us nothing.���������Speaker.      ,  Only Thin a to Do.

One  of Xature'a Wonder* That Mar  Be Seen In Texas.  In the Peach creek neighborhood is a  place known as the Hole In the Ground,  which is the only place in Texas, as far  as known,' where the wind blows up and  down, a regular gale.' The hole is on the  cattle ranch belonging' to Claus Baum-  gartner, and_close to, the creek between  high, wooded bluffs.' Peach creek .is really a bayou, ..its waters level with-the  ' sea and. running only during freshets"  caused by exeessiv.e rains. -High south.,  or north* winds are the. only ones to ruffle its usually placid surface.  "But it does not matter how placid the  waters of, Peach creek may be, how  straight'and unbending the trees on the  bluffs may stand or how lazily the clouds  drift through the air, there is always a  gale at the Hole In the Ground. It blows  and roars and whistles and shrieks as  only a raging hurricane can do in its mad  career. The hole isra costly affair to the  man who owns it. The low ground on  which it is situated is the only place  where his cattle can get water at the  creek. .  It would be all right if a fence could  be maintained around the hole, but that  cannot be done. Every time" the wind  veers to the east everything above ground  between the bluffs is sucked into it,  snapping the stoutest fenceposts like  pipestems and snatching coils of barbed  wire like they were flimsy gossamers. At  such times horses, cattle and sheep that  happen to be on' the flat are doomed.  Strong horses, caught in the eddy of the  mysterious wind, are as .helpless as flies  in a gale. They plunge and leap, and  struggle for a minute,, then they are  pressed , down,, whirled ';around... a few  times and go down never' tp be seen  again. .' ,  The hole itself is about 300 feet across  the top, with' slanting sides. No one has  ever dared to go close enough to be able  to look down into it and see what the  bottom is like. The sounds of the wind  .vary from a hoarse roar to a keen whistling noise. The prevailing winds, except  an east wind;' do not seem to affect it in  any way, for in calm and storm, rain and  shine, night and day, winter and summer,  it puffs and sucks and whirls and'eddies  to suit itself.  Twice in the-, memory of man Peach  creek has overflowed its banks high  enough to run into the bole. The water  then rose to a depth of four feet on the  flat where the hole is situated. For a  minute or so the water would pour down  with a gurgling noise, then the* earth  around seemed to hump itself for a moment; and the next there would be an explosive sound, when it would come up  again in a solid column 100 feet high.  When this column broke, the waves rushed against the adjacent bluffs and were  whipped into foam. This was repeated  every minute,or'two until the water in  the creek went back again within its  banks. After the water had receded and  the'hole-had resumed its usual labor'of  sucking and puffing wind once more, the  ground around was literally covered with  the bones of dead, animals on which it  had gorged itself for many years before'  ���������St. Louis Globe-Democrat.  Both Told  the Troth.  "Truth compels' me to state." said  the presiding officer "of a medical congress, "that upon the list of physicians  present just read there Is one that is no  gentleman."  A stir of surprise,passed over tbe assemblage at this, and one man upon  whose foot, as the presiding officer said  afterward, the shoe seemed to he a perfect fit half rose from his sent. But in  another moment a woman's voice from  the back part of the hall made itself  heard.  "I quite agree with Dr. Blank." said  the voice, "for I am that physician. In  my turn I must say, however, that. Dr.  Blank is no lady."  Finger Nulla. ���������  . The pace of growth of finger nails varies very much, not only at different ages,  but in different individuals of the same  age. Influenced by many external and  internal conditions, the pace also varies  in the same person from' time to time.  A few observations will be submitted to  the notice of the. reader as to the growth  of finger nails in men at different ages.  At 21 years the nail was replaced in  126 days, at 31 years in 159 days, at 32  years in 88 days, at 55 years in 110 days,  at 67 years in 144 days. - It is curious  that in this growth the swiftest grower  was a tuberculous subject who had a  sharp attack of blood spitting during the  observation. Sea air is said to quicken  the growth of the nails; profound grief  has been credited with the power of destroying them.  A valuable point of. diagnosis is afford-'  ed by the growth of the finger nail. In  distinguishing between true paralysis of  centric origin and the various pseudo-  paralyses of hysteria which sometimes so  closely simulate organic disease, it is  well to remember that the'growth of the  nail is modified by most of the centric  lesions, while its development is not affected by hysteria.���������Medical Record.

"If an actress' features are irregular,  she has, to treat them specifically," writes  Franklin Fyles in The Ladies' Home  Journal. "If her nose is a pug or a  turn up, she draws a white line down its  center to the very tip end. On each side  of this line she lays on a light, bluish  gray tint. The effect of that is to  lengthen the nose when the full face is  seen. Of course the illusion is lost when  the profile is presented. If the cheeks  are too plump, the lower halves of them  are darkened. An imitation of youthful-  ness is helped by making the color very  light just below the eyes. If the cheek  bones are high and the cheeks hollow  below them,' the former are whitened  and the latter reddened. When an actress is called upon to 'make up for a  character part,' which means preparing  herself to represent an old or eccentric  woman, her methods are much the same  that men use under the same circumstances. Few young women oh the stage  like to look old. Stage managers have  to struggle to-make them, conceal their  youth even when the characters require  it. They are apt to lose years as soon  as his vigilance is relaxed."  DANGER IN  MISPRINTS.  A Cnae Ia Point���������Care Taken by Author and. 'Publisher.  "The danger from misprints Is nowhere so great," a publisher said the,  other day, "as in medical treatises:. At  present a paragraph is appearing in  certain technical periodicals as follows: 'We are asked to state that in.,  , the third edition of Professor Virgil  .Coblentz's very useful'little* book, "entitled "The Newer Remedies," recent-  <ly issued, the dose. of blennostasine  (cinchonidine dibydrobromide) is given as from one to four grams (15 to,  CO grains) instead of from one to four  grains. The error has been corrected  in the copies printed since it was discovered.'  "This is an error possibly of a very  dangerous character.    It may bet the  printer's error; it may be the author's.  No one else can  rightly be held  responsible, and indeed tbe responsibility comes home to tbe author after all.  "Extreme  care  is taken   to   guard  against misprints in technical works;  Ln the publication of -medical  books,  such as this one referred to, ln which  doses,are prescribed, the watchfulness  is about as close as it can well be. The  reason is obvious.   It Is presumed that,  the author has revised his manuscript;  that be' has  written  bis formula accurately and plainly; that be has read  and reread what be.has written; that  mistakes  of  carelessness  may   be  all-  corrected.    The printer, following the  manuscript, does bis best to reproduce '  exactly what.it contains.   The duty of-  the proofreader; (there may  be  more  t than one) is to s������* to it that the printer  has done bis work accurately..'    ���������  "The revised proof Is then sent to  the author. It pretends to be ln printed words exactly what he has written;  He reads it carefully for-errors. He is  at liberty to change It If be will. As  a rule, be does this work conscientiously. The proof is then corrected again  to ^correspond with tbe' author's  changes. Thus revised, it Is sent to  him again to read for errors. It is returned to the publisher with further  corrections, revised and sent once more  to the author. This is tbe .last proof,  the 'foundry proof.' The pages are  in the condition,they will be when the.  book is issued.        ,        .  "Publishers, follow their own customs, of course. The routine I have  described . Is not common to all the  houses. Greater or less care may be  taken.       0      . ,    . ..'.'.:"'  ,   "It is apparent that such a mistake  as  the  word, grams   for grains   may  -properly . be, laid  at the door of the.  ^author, to whom.the possibility of such,  a thing should .give the sharpest eyes.  Such   mistakes are  Infrequent. , I. do.  not' at   this   moment   recall   another..  When they do occur, their discovery  throws   the   publishing   bouse. Into   a  state of consternation.

Through the merchants  an attempt is  made to trace the individual purchasers.    No time is lost;  no trouble is  too great.'   Notices are  inserted in the technical journals, such  as the one I have read.   Warnings are'  placed wherever they may be effective.  "The  minor errors are corrected  in  later editions!    A mistake in spelling,  a bad quotation and so forth distress  the author more than anybody else.   It.  is possible to insert in a book a paper  slip with printed .corrections and references.

Charles  Land, Beyond Spltxberj*,eii.  No hopes are longer entertained that  Dr. Andree and his two companions  have survived their attempt to cross  the north polar area in a balloon. Sir  Martin-Cpnway voiced the general  opinion when he wrote in the new "International Geography" that "an attempt by the Swedish-engineer Andree  to cross the north polar area in a balloon-must be classed with the mysterious tragedies of .exploration."  Another effort will be made this summer, however, to ascertain the fate of  the explorers by following up a clew  that may prove to bet important. On  Sept 11 last year a buoy was picked  up on tbe north coast of King Charles  Land," 80 degrees north latitude and  25 degrees east longitude, which''bore  the words on .a nickel plate "And ree's  Polar Expedition." It was.taken to  Stockholm unopened, and there it was  proved to be what Andree had called  "the north pole buoy." 'it was tbe buoy  in which be was to place a message  and drop it when he passed the north  pole. , ' -   .  ' It was opened In tbe. presence of several arctic experts and members of tbe  government, * but    no'   message    was  -found in It.'  There was a coating in-,  side, the tube tbat seemed to resemble  paper,   but  a,, microscopical ^examination showed'that It was a growth of.  algoe.   The experts agreed that it could,  not have drifted  from, tlie neighborhood of the pole to King Charles Land.  There appeared to be no reason why it  should have been thrown out empty,'  and   the  view  forced   Itself  upon   all  that it was a part of the wreckage of  the expedition.  This is the clew which It Is proposed  to follow up. It is thought that the  expedition may have come to grief not  far from the place where the buoy was  found. Next summer a Swedish-Russian expedition js to go to Spitzbergen  to relieve the party that has beeu  spending a number of months there in  the work of measuring an arc of the  meridian in tbat high latitude. The  Swedish steamer that will be part of  this expedition will make a detour to  King Charles Land and carefully  search tbe entire neighborhood for further traces of tbe lost party. It is  thought to be highly probable that  more" wreckage will be found and perhaps considerable light thrown upon  the fate of Andree and bis men.���������New  York Sun.  15  10  5  10  6  4  25  15  10  15  10  ;' 5  15  10  5  10  8  5  8'  6  4  6  4  2  in      the  Canadian Shire Horse Stud book, English Shire Horse Stud book,  or American Shire Horse Stud book,     must be  produced in this class.

Transient Ads Cwto ih "Advance,  TUESDAY, JULY 10th 1900,  Some objection has been made to  an article which   -appeared  in  the  News on 26tK\Tune re   the  school  grounds,.  One trustee even chargr  ing us with   "ridiculing t the   trustees," withdrawing his subscription  Jri consequence.    Now we defy any  ��������� person of   un'biaised ..judgment, to  .find anything in that, article ridi-  culing of even ' criticising  the trus-  ieesvor any other   person,' and  we  *tate. right here, that  there was ' no  intt-ntion of anything of lhe   kind;  The trustee in   question  remarked  that, after "years   of   school  service  without any recompense he did not  consider it just to be ridiculed.   It  must he borne in   mind   that  any  person   accepting  a   public  trust,  whether with or without remuneration, is a  public servant,   and as  euch, is liable to  criticism   and to  ce.sure.if   occasion  demands.    In  this case the trustees   were neither  criticised nor censured, but  a plain  statement of  facts was put  before  them and it remains with  them to  take what action they see fit.   If  they take a wrong one,  then they  are liable to censure, 'not before,  J>������t there should be further mis-  ' understanding, we will   repeat- 1,  A dividing fence   should   be  built  between the girls' and  boys' play  grounds-   in   the    public    school  grounds,   % Boys are in the habit  of, and have frequently been heard  to use bad language   in the   school  grounds.   This can be proved, and  should  be attended   to,     We are  sorry to lose a   good   subscriber.  through a mu-understanding,but we  must insist upon the right of every  newspaper to put before the  public  matters of public interest, in which  the expenditure of public money is  concerned, and in this stand, we  wili,  if  blamed  by one person, be  heartily supported and commended  by ninety-nine,    We give all praise  where deserved,    We will/attack no  person privately or  on matters  of  private business, but we will keep  ftn eye on matters of   public  interest, in the interest of the public.   It  matters not whether  Mr, Netherby  tells the trustees that "it is not necessary to  divide school  grounds."  Mr> Netherby has no  right   to'dic-  Latu .to the trustees what their  s ;hool should or should not have.  The public of this town." , through  those tiustees, are the ones to judge  and the trustees will be upheld by  the public and by this paper in  doing what is right. We have a  magnificent school, and a staff of  teachers which gives every satisfaction. Should there be a shortage of funds to make necessary improvements, let the trustees make  ther wisnes known to the Government, and this paper will uphold  them and assist"them in every way  it possibly can.  ��������� ���������  MB.
