Throughout  the -civilized world the people '  and their rulers have joined in expressing   a genuine  sympathy for  England's -King and his millions  of subjects, who also, by their sorrow, show how devoted and loyal  in their attachment to the ruler of  their mighty empire.  The Indians of Comox report a'  curious phenomenon one night lust  week.    On the side of a mountain  visible from . the ranche, there, fire  was seen'near'the foot.     This died  away, then reappeared and ran up  the- mountain  side with   amazing  speed, twice  halting in its  course,  until* the    summit   was   reached,  where it blazed fiercely.for  a time,  and then disappeared. It was white  in appearance, and left no flame on  its path.    The Indians cannot account for it in any way,-they think-  ii.g it was like " the fire that burnt  the town" (Mt. Pelee eruption). It  was   most   probably   of   electrical  origin.     The mountain is at least  10 miles from the village, and is in  the Beaufort range. ���������J���������J.  ____[  'i"i*  jX  *t"*T  tx  ������������  ���������j****  f*  A  GIRL  OF GRIT.  -   ���������   ������������������*���������������?���������������������������������������������  3Y IiIAJOR  AUTHTJR GRIFFITHS.

"The  ���������gentleman's,a-waiting, sir," and I read  It-twice,-without understanding lt in  the very least. ,  Could it be a hoax? To satisfy" myself I sat up in bed, rubbed my aston-'  ished and still half sleepy eyes and  read it again.    It ran as follows:  GRAY  &  QUINLAN.   SOLICITORS.  *.    " 101 Lincoln's Inn, July 11, 189���������.  1><*ar   Sir���������I*   is   our   pleasing   duty,   to   inform  you,  'at   the   request   of   our   New   Vork   agents,  ���������* Messrs.   Smiddy  &   Dann  of  57  Chambers  street.  New York city, that they have now definitely and  .-     conclusively   established, your   claim   as   the  sole  surviving relative and general  heir-at-law of their  , late   esteemed   client,   Mr.  Anitas   McFaught   of  Church place and  Fifth avenue.  New York.  As the amount, of your inheritance is very considerable and is estimated approximately at between $14,000,000 and $15,000,000, say three million!  of sterling money, we have thought it right to apprise you of your good fortune without delay.  Our Mr. Richard Quinlan will hand you this letter  in person and will be pleased to take your instructions.    We are, sir, your obedient servants,  CllAY   &   QuiNLA.V.

And. sluicing my  head in coltl water. I put on a favorite  ���������old dressing gown and passed into the  next room, followed by Roy.'my precious golden collie, who began at once"  to sniff suspiciously at my visitor's  legs.  I found there a prim, little, old-young  -���������gentleman, who scanned me curiously  -through his gold rimmed pince nez.  ���������Although, no doubt, greatly surprised���������  ���������for he did not quito expect to see an  ���������archmillionaire in an old ulster with a  ragged collar of catskin, wjtb damp,  unkempt locks and unshorn chin at  that time of day���������he addressed me  . with much formality and respect.  "I  must apologize for this Intrusion,  Captain    ��������� Wood ��������� you   , are     Captain  V-t'oodV"  ���������Undoubtedly."  VI   mn   Mi*.

"By no means. I am dying to bear  more. But. first of all. this letter. It's  all bona lido, I .suppose?"  ������������������Without" question. It Is from our  firm. There can be no possible mistake. We have made it our business  ���������to verify all the facts .������������������������������������-indeed, this ia  ���������not the first'we had heard of the affair  ���������but we did not think it right to speak  to you too soon. This morning, how-  ���������ever. the mail has brought a full ae-  ���������knowle'dgment of your claims, so wo  ���������came on at ouce to see you."  "How did you find me out, pray?"*  "We have had our eye on you for  some time past. Captain Wood." said  the little lawyer smilingly. "While  we<��������� were' Inquiring���������you understand���������  we were anxious to do the best for  you"���������  "I'm sure I'm Infinitely obliged to  you. But still I can't believe it. quite.  ���������I should like to be convinced of the reality of my good luck. You see, I  'haven't thoroughly taken it in."  "Read this letter from our New York  agents, Captain  Wood.    It gives more  details," and he handed me a typewritten communication on two quarto  sheets of tissue paper:, also a number  of'cuttings from the New York press.  The early part of the letter referred  to the'search and'discovery of the heir**  at-I.*]..w (myself) andstated frankly that  there could be no sort of doubt that  my'case was clear and that they would  be pleased, when' called upon! to put  me'in full possession of my estate.  .From, that they passed on to a brief  enumeration of the assers. which comprised real, estate ih town lots, lauds,"  .houses, stocks, shares, well placed investments of all kinds, part, ownership  of a lucrative "road." or railway: the  controlling power in shipping, companies, coal companies, cable companies,  and mining companies in all parts' of  the United States.  "It will be seen that the estate is of  some magnitude.", wrote .Messrs. Smiddy & Dann. "aud we earnestly hope  that Captain William A. Wood will  lake an early opportunity of coming  over io look into things for himself  We shall then be ready lo give a full  account of out; stewardship and to explain any details'. ' ���������  ".Meanwhile. ,to meet any small immediate needs, we have thought it advisable to remit a first bill of exchange  for $n0.000���������say ������10,217 17s. fid'., at  current rates���������negotiable at sight and  duty charged by us to the,.estate."  "The Last part of the .letter, is convincing enough." I said with a little,  laugh, as J returned it to Mr. Quinlan.  "Always supposing that it is real money and will uot turn to withered  leaves.'     -    <  "How"would you like it paid. Captain  Wood?a  Into your bankers?"  "If you please.   Messrs. Sykes & Sars-  field. the,army agents, of Pall Mall."  "It shall be don> *t once.    I will call  there,  if ycu  will  permit me, on   way  back  to Lincoln's" Inn. , Is  there anything mere?.   As to  your affairs .generally.,   If y.ou have no other lawyers,  we   are  supposed   to  be' good   men   of  business and perhaps���������of course we arl  v.ince ' no . claims���������you    may   consider  that we have served you well "alrend.Vo  and may intrust us further with your  confidence."  "My dear sir. I fully and freely admit your claims. I should be most ungrateful if'I did not.' Pray consider  yourselves installed as my confidential  legal advisers from this time,forth."  "Thank you sincerely,'Captain Wood.  I can'only express a hope that as our  acquaintance grows you will have no  reason to regret this 'decision. I will  now���������unless,; you have any further  commands���������wish you a very good  ���������morning."  With a.stiff, studied bow he bent before me and was. gone. He left me a  prey to many emotions���������surprise, -bewilderment still predominating, but  withal a sense of pleasurable excitement. .  It was indeed a change, a revolution  ln my affairs. Hitherto, like most men  of, my 'cloth; 1 had been constantly  hard up: of late, all but in "Queer  street." for I had yielded only too readily to the fascinations of London. After many years of service abroad, this  .spell at home, in the heart and center  of life, was enough to turn any one's  head. I was now on the headquarters  staff, with an appointment in the intelligence department, and I found people were very kind; shoals of invitations came iu, and I accepted everything���������balls, dinners, routs.

But Minervy would corral him now  and then,'and 'twas just beautiful to  see how she played him when he was  booked.

But  I   noticed  words, for I admit I was kind of flurried, but they include his meaning all  right.  ���������  He was always a gentleman and kind  spoken, but he was gentler, than' ever  after that. Reckon he pitied her-at  first.- Wondered. I s'pose. how a nice  girl like her could get to liking a no  'count chap like him. A man; who's  been jilted in love is tbe darndest critter that ever walked.  ��������� He begun by be5ng even more  thoughtful and attentive.

'  One day Gingerface rode in 'and dropped an Indian basket of ripe cherries in  Minervy's lap. "He sent -'em," says  the, greaser, and a sunset wasn't a  patch to the girl's face. '"  She sent back her thanks to'Barron  by me, and when Barron ashed me if  she 'peared to like the cherries I put if'  on thick, now, I tell you.  The next morning he started off with  a -basket and rode' nigh twenty mile  back towards the ranch, but not on the  regular trail, where -he'd found the  cherry, tree'. Nobody saw just what  happened a^t that cherry tree but .the  parties that, took part in the game.

They'd have'  made'a powerful 'good cover for Injuns,  in the old days.. They made a powerful  good cover'for something quite as bad  on this-day I'm telling you of."  "  Barron   picketed   his'cayuso  at  the  foot of the hill and climbed up to the  ' tree.    Ho 'was astride of a limb and  had about picke'd the basket full when"  "he all of a sudden discovered a,grizzly,  something like the size of !a well grown  bull,   meandering'*along after- cherries  too.

Then come a game of dodging around  them bowlders. Barron was, light and  active,, but the bear was eager and  bound to make an .example of the first  feller he.'d 'caught in his orchard..And  the old devil was Avise^ too. He seemed to keep between Barron and his gun  all the time.  ' '  -    ��������� <.  Well, them two circled about there  a dozfn times until Barron was well  nigh played to a ' frazzle.

And it got mo mad, too���������mad with  Barron. Minervy was as fine a filly as  ever cavorted over these here foothills,  and to have a darned tenderfoot come  out.here and mix her up so that she  was off her feed just hit me hard.  To kinder help matters along 1 begun to hint pretty strong to hiin. But it  was dangerous business. I never come  nearer to passing in my checks and  settling with the banker in my life!  You see, Barron'd been jollied more or  Jess right along, for all the boys was  on to the play, but we was careful  about using names. Let me tell you,  cowpuDchers may be a tough Jot, but  we don't bandy about women's names  ���������not good women's names, leastwise.  I says to the boy one day: "If you  wasn't such a thick headed, all sufficient rooster, you'd see that Minervy  was just eating of ber heart out for  you. Why don't you walk up to her  like a man aud offer to marry her?"  Now, mind you, I was only hinting���������  i.didn't intend to give no offense at ail-  but that boy was sure quick with his  gun- Lord! The muzzle looked as big  as one of them cannon over to the  post.  "Don't you ever use that lady's name  again in such a manner," he says, "or,  old as you be, I'll turn loose on you!"  Them   may   not   have   been  just  his  good place to be on, and he knew grizzlies aren't usually much on the climb.  So, getting dead sore on his present gy-'  rations, Barron broke for the rock.  . He reached it just ahead of the bear,  and that's all.,     , ���������   ������  The trail was. three good, miles away,  but the air is clear'in these parts, and  Minervy carried a good pair of glasses  when she rode out. I suppose she rode  toward the range,that day because her  heart was in that direction. Leastwise  through the glasses she seen tAvo black  figgers on the hillside, one on top of  the rock and one gyrating round it.  They looked funny, and she rode over  and saw it was a man and a bear.  Then she rode nearer and saw whothe  man'-was.  Run for help? Guess not! Minervy  was born and bred in this country, and,  she had a hair lariat slung to her saddlebow. Barron tried to keep her away  from danger, but she rode right up  within proper distance, dropped the  loop over that bear's head as pretty as  a picture and then set her pony down  the hill at a canter.  Before Barron could get his gun and  run up to the grizzly the brute was  choked plumb dead. And I reckon  right then and there Barron decided  that a girl who knew what to do for a  man besieged by a grizzly would wear  a .deni sight better in thin country than  a girl who looked pretty behind a tea-  table.    ,���������     .  Leastwise, he and -Minervy"'filled;the  basket with cherries again and rode  back to the ranch to tell tbe Goshens.  and two mouths later, when the parson come through "rounding up" the  couples, as he done once a year, they  were married, and I ain't never beard,  that Barron was sorry he went after  them cherries.

They build  ���������in  the open  air,   fastening  a     single  comb  to     the     branch     of a   'small'  tree   or  shrub. This  comb  is     no  larger than a man's hand and, is  verv fragile and delicate. There are  100 worker cells to the square inch  of surface. The tiny workers' bodies  are longer than house Hies and more  slender. They are blue-black in color, with part of the abdomen a  bright orange. These diminutive  bees gather vory little surplus honey, therefore their cultivation would,  not be profitable.���������Farm  Journal.  FEEDING CONTROLLER.  -Pure corn  meal   only.

Valuable Adjunct to the Small "Hairy  E<juit������F"eut.  Addressing the Kansas .state board  of agriculture at Its annual meeting,  G. B. Morgan said:  The value'of'the farm separator to  the private dairyman- has already pass-  ted  the experimental  stage.    The, ,evi-  ���������dence of our'experimental stations and  i the .testimony 'of all who have made a  j careful. Intelligent comparison between  ���������the  gravity   system   and   the   modern  j cream separator are practically a unit in  I favor of the la.tter for the private dairy-  i man.    The question  as to  its advantages   In   localities   where   creameries  jare established is one upon which there  ���������lis much difference of opinion,  j    The most serious problem  confronting creameries at this time is that of  joperating expenses.   This applies alike  ,  jboth   to   creamery   and   patron,   and,  ���������whether lender co-operative or proprietary  management, it makes but little  ' jdifference.  ��������� All  are  vitally   interested  !In the expense account,    if the eastern  creamery enjoys a patronage of from  i.0.000 to 3-0,000 pounds of'milk per day,  while many of our creameries are running ��������� along   at    from   3.000   to   5.000  ��������� pounds, then we have lost much of the  advantage  we< possess  on  account of,  our cheaper dairy,foods in the Increased cost of operating.   Evidently as long  as present  conditions exist  some eys-  ��������� teni of centralization-is inevitable.  ' Tbe farm  separator,   we think, .will  assist greatly In solving this problem.  ���������It meant* a,minimum of labor with a  maximum  of  prolit,   'The  product   is.  carried   In   condensed   form   from   tbef  ._patron to tbe creamery.    We feel safe  In  saying that  fully  one-third  of  the  skimming  stations In   this state from  October'to May do not' pay running ox--  penses.    It lsrih these localities where  '���������' tbe farm  separator will' prove of rthe  * greatest benefit.      ��������� t '  At points where the patronage Is liberal any radical, change would not be  advisable.     It   will   to  a  great extent  work Its own way.   T>ut nt these wenk-  . er, nonpayln-g stations much good can  ;be accomplished by the nse of the farm  i separator,1 especially in territory where  I the distance'Is too great to haul milk.  jTnie, to*"carry out this plan the fiirnvf  ! must -make an  investment -for   whim  jhe   is  amply   compensated   intheiu-  jcreased value of the sklmmilk aud the  [convenience of having it on  the  farm  ; morning and evening  to h<_-' l'-';d   while.

PUNISHMENT   FOR  CFUME.  Some   of   the   Barbnrossa   Laws   Tin I  UbccI  to   De  Ea*.'oiT(;-l.  Sir Samuel Itomilly was the first wl <  endeavored to soften. the rigor of tin  criminal law. In 1808 he passed a bill n-  pealing the statute of Elizabeth, whic <  made larceny punishable by death, an i  three or four years later,he carried other;  bills of a similar nature. Indeed, it i<  chiefly owing to his efforts that our ci im-  lnal system is indebted for its present  characteristics of humanity.  One or two of tho former punishments  are so curious that it may be interestin;!  to notice them. In the, time of Henry  VIII. poisoning was.made treason, and  the punishment was to be boiled alive,  which was carried out in the case of John  Rous, who threw poison into a pot of  broth prepared for the bishop ���������.->������ Rochester's family. This, in common with many  more of Henry VIII.'s barbarous laws,  was repealed by Edward VI. The law  of retaliation was introduced by statute ���������  37, Edward III., as a' punishment foe  those who preferred malicious accusations. It did not answer, however, and  was repealed after one year's trial.������������������  Crimes of an unnatural nature, such us a  wife killing her husband, a servant his  master, an ecclesiastic his superior, word  held petit treason, and a man was drawn  ���������nd hanged and a woman drawn and  burned.  We see something of a similar nature  ln the ancient Roman law that enacted  that the murderer of a parent should be  scourged and then tied up in a leather  ������ack with a dog, cock, viper and ape and  then thrown into the sea. Publieus Malleolus, who killed Irjs mother, was the  first who suffered.this punishment in tho  year of Home G52.  But this punishment has existed in  modern Europe. Thus, in Spain, at .Taen.  on March 1, 1832, a man, for murdering  his daughter-in-law. after being placed  In a barrel.with a cock, a snake, a monkey and a toad, was thrown into the  river.  Another common punishment, now long  obsolete, was disfigurement, as every one?  acquainted with the records of the stat  chamber knows. Ears and noses wer<  most frequently cut off, the excuse being  that the loss of them does not tend tn  weaken the culprit, whereas tho loss ot  an arm or finger does. Early law alway*  advocated member for member, forgetting  that on a repetition of the offense thd  punishment cannot be repeated.

They  had gone out in'a body, and they had  gone out to stay, but in spite 'of their  unity the road was -by no moans tied  , up. True, the cre*\vs were forced to  double. an(l some of them came from  the offices, but nevertheless traffic was  not greatly interfered with.  . No. .">. the westbound mail, was scheduled to leaveat S p. in. and to run the  101 miles in two hours and throe minutes. The engineer selected -to take  her out was one who had been' employed for that day "only, but he had  ���������shown, even in that short time, a willingness to do things "square."  At 7:20 he went down to tho roundhouse. His fireman, John McDonald,  had just put the finest engine in the  service. No. 0.j0, on the turntable, and  she was swinging slowly around to her  track.      '  ��������� As the engineer stepped near she.  gave a slight "phut" and moved slowly  ���������>_������ to  the  solid  ground. '  She   looked  A FLASH OF LIGHTNING SHOWED THE THES-  TLK HANGING IN  3IIDAI1**.  faultless. Her headlight shone with  dazzling brilliancy,.'she was polished  from pilot to tender, aud the high light  on her great'boiler shone in the electric  light which flashed before the dis-  pather's office.  The new engineer climbed aboard,  and when the fireman came back from  the, office he was standing in the cab,  silently looking her over. He reached  for the throttle and pinched it gently.  Not for the world would he abuse this  "steed.    ' ���������  .,  In mute obedience the racer started  forward noiselessly, for her exhaust  was rnuflled, and she was not being  forced. Slowly she glided over the  switches until the station shed was  reached. Then, dropping into the main  line, she'crept ahead to the edge of the  depot and waited for her burden.  At* 7:45 the yardmaster climbed  aboard and introduced the enginemen.  who up to this time had scarcely  spoken a word. "John," he said, addressing the fireman, "this is Will  "'Donohue. You two have a nasty run  before you.- No. 5 is twenty minutes  late because of rains over toward Chicago.   Think you'can make it up?"  He   was   looking  at   Douohne,   who  nodded   curtly.     "I   don't  know   any  thing about her capa-city, but she responds   quickly   and   runs   smoothly.  I'll test her tonight."  The yardmaster looked serious.    *  "Don't be too daring.    This locomotive has one bad fault.    She can't stop  quickly.     She  need.?  plenty   of  room.  See that she has it."    And he jumped  from the locomotive.  At S:23 the Limited slid, dripping,  into the' depot., Her engine, worn out.  rattled off to the roundhouse, and No.  930 glided down the track and gently  made the couplings. No. 5 was composed of seven cars, five vestibuled  Pullmans and two heavily loaded mail  ��������� cars.' "The ��������� superintendent, who had  come over the Illinois division with  her. hurried forward.  ...- "The storm's following you, with a  gale blowing from the east. If you run  fast, you may keep ahead of it till the  time's made up."  He ran back to the train and climbed  aboard as Donohue slid his window  shut and opened the throttle.  The. stars were fading, the sky was  cloudedyaud a brisk wind started up,  advance guards of the storm. In a moment they were clear of the yards, and  the great engine buckled down to hei  work. Every second the speed went up.  It was fifty miles an hour, fifty-two, fifty-four. Another touch on the throttle,  and she was wide open. The engineer  put the reverse next to the center aud  dropped a few hodfuls of sand. He  played with her, humored her, urged  her on, and as the speed increased he  sat down to watch her and the raila  ahead.  He wondered whether, if the super  intendent had his head out of the cai  window, he would now think the wind  came from the east. He would wagei  anything that they wer������ not-twenty-  three minutes late now.  A star suddenly hove In sight on the  horizon. It twinkled and grew steadi  ly larger. ��������� It was followed by a trai'  ofv .weaker,.light. A meteor?- Nearer  and nearer it tore along the'eastbound  tracks. For a brief moment it shone  dazzling, on 9������>0, then shot past. Wil '  Donohue caught a glimpse of a Ggun  in the cab,"., the faint gleam of tbe  Pintsch   burners   iu   the   sleepers,   tlie  sharper lights ou the rear eiid. It wt*  cne easr.oouna mer. /rney were scheduled to pass at Wood vale, five milos  ahead. The Limited was five minutes  late. She would be on time in a; short  while.  But the sky was black'with threatening clouds. Even then,, as the engineer thrust his hand out in the night,  lie felt the'1 big raindrops that presage  a heavy storm.- He must watch sharp  now, for in a moment the tracks would  be soaked and the wheels would be  slipping.  As the train , swept round a, curve,  leaning heavily to the left, a streak of  lightning' flashed vividly.    There was  a roar and crash of thunder, and the  gale was upon them, driving resistless-  ly, steadily, fiom the east. They were  on time now and soon would be ahead  of the schedule.  Donohue. remembering the words of  the yardmaster, rose to shut off some  steam. They skimmed over a bridge,,  and Will felt it sway beneath them.  By the lightning he. had, caught a  glimpse of swirling waters and realized that in another five minutes that  bridge would be down.���������- Were -there  others Hive it? His firemau touched  his arm.  -  . ...  ���������'"For God's sake," he, shouted, "shut  off, Bill! Waverly trestle's just a mile  ahead, * and heaven knows whether  she's there yet!" ,  Donohue nodded and turned to shove  the throttle iii. It would' not budge!  He took both hands to tho task and���������  failed. Again and again he threw his  whole weight on it Suddenly it went  home; and' he fell to the floor of the  cab. In an instant he was on his feet,  and a flash of lightning showed the  trestle hanging in midair some distance ahead. They were running ninety miles an hour, with a'gale to push  them forward, slippery rails and wet  wheels for the.' brakes and an engine  which needed plenty of room in which  to stop!       '" ���������    ������������������  On the instant that Donohue ��������� rose  from his fall tlie .brakes flew to the  wheels and sand poured on tlie steel.  A stream of fire fell from the drivers  and' from every ���������.wheel on the train.  With a struggle, the engineer, reversed  th������ engine. She'shuddered as if in the  clutch of death; alio reared and shook;  she seemed trying to tear herself to  pieces, but her speed went lower and  lower. The brakes gripped the burning wheel treads with a grasp' of iron.  As she ground along her flanges somehow mounted the steel, and with- a  struggle, a last terrible leap, she tore  herself loose from the rest of the train  and plunged over the embankment.  ^ McDonald had jumped long ago, but  -Will?  With a cry he felt the engine that'  had won his heart'from tho start, his  love of a single night,, crash off the  ties. He reached for the throttle anc"  grasped it. When they found him  buried beneath the ruins of his engine  he still clutched the choker in his cold,  lifeless hands." He had gone, down tc  his death with' 950, but the train was  saved.  Making  "Helen's   Babies"   Go.  John Habberton. the author of "Helen's Babies," said to his publisher when  the novel was about ready to appear,  "If you want to save the cost of a  great deal of advertising, just give me  500 copies of this book, and I'll guarantee to distribute them so that we'll  have a success without a cent's worth  of advertising being needed." The"  publisher, a little reluctantly, took Mr.  Habberton at his word.  Tbe author thereupon made a list of  all the important bookstores in the  United States and found out the name  of the head of the department of fiction in each store. Now, the heads of  all book departments are all fiends in  the collection of autograph first editions���������tliat is. with the author's*signature upon the imprint. There is scarcely an exception to. this rule. Mr. Habberton. being wise in all that concerns  bookstores. ��������� accordingly sent to each  head,a copy of "Helen's Babies" that  contained not only his autograph, but  a pleasant letter also that, expatiated  on the merit of the work.. The heads  were delighted. They instructed their  salesmen and saleswomen in the book  department to boom "Helen's Babies,"  to recommend it to every hesitating  customer. And thus the book succeeded, though it would have succeeded  anyway upon its merit���������Philadelphia  Record.  Forgot Their Sorrow.  In his autobiography, "The Making  of an American," Jacob A. Riis tells an  amusing story of a visit he once made  to the house of three sisters whose  brother had been drowned:  "It was a very hot July day, and to  guard against sunstroke I had put a  cabbage leaf in my hat. On the way  over I forgot all about it, and the leaf,  getting limp, settled down snugly on  my head, like'a ridiculous green skullcap. Knowing nothing of this, I, was  wholly unprepared for the effect my  entrance, hatless, had upon the weeping family, t The young ladies ceased  crying, stared wildly and then, to my  utter bewilderment', broke into hysterical " laughter.- For the moment" I  thought they had gone mad. For some  years' afterward the thought of it had  the same effect upon me that the cabbage leaf produced so unexpectedly in  that grief stricken home."  '  The "Nttpiuin.  Nothing is so humorous as the .writings upon.etiquette by people to whom  such knowledge is a sealed book.

Immediately after the result of the election was  known the new congressman's' wife  drove in from her country home to the  county, seat to call in triumph on her  dearest-enemies in,a social .way. She  called first on the wife of the local  banker," who" had sent her three daughters through Vassal-, and after receiving .the congratulations of "the'family  sho turned the conversation to her  plans for the future of her-own daughter, Jennie.'

The written language therefore is, with a ("single exception, free  from redundant letters. The chief difficulty in the language to English  speaking people is the inflection of its  verbs. These move from ono mood and  tense to another by terminal changes,  while English verbs move by auxiliaries. In inflection Spanish follows Latin, of which' it is a beautiful and richly endowed daughter, so much so that  it adopts no word or phrase from other  languages. -7-        _  Cnnwnres.

The chfvrices of marriage, or old  maidenhood have been the subject of  many superstitions, which vary in  'different parts of the world. In Norway the girls used to weave a wonderful net of the finest hair, working  ten minutes of an evening by moonlight, in the belief that those who  toiled thus successfully for 30 moonlight nights would surely be married, before three years had passed.  The girls who broke, the hairs given  them to work with, or who tore  holes in their nets, were, of cours.?,  destined to be old   mai'ds.  Eskimo    Wrestling*.  Next to gambling the Eskimo men  like to wrestle. The usual way of doing this is a test rather of strength  than skill. The wrestlers sit down on  the floor or in any convenient place  side by side and facing in opposite directions, say, with right elbows touching. Then they lock arms, and each  strives to straighten out the other's  arm.  ICHUNDA SINGH  AND  THE  PURPLE PENCE  t  By John Walker Harrington.  ������ Copyright, 1901, by J. XV. Harrington. -������  ���������^^���������i--������-:������:--������4^^^-������-^^-������^-*h--^*^;**������  , Ramchunda' Singh first heard of the  purple pence as he was pouring'yellow  powder upon the simmering contents  of a chafing dish. He was curry" cook  in Cherry's restaurant at a time when  a new fad had just arrived in'' New  York. Ramchunda Singh was sure  that the fad would be, short lived,  and, being a Hindoo person, of ready  resource's, he sought to find' another'  means of livelihood.'. ' Life had not  been pleasant since by strange chance  Ramchunda Singh had imbibed intoxicants. He had been left stranded in  New York on the day tho steamer on  which' he was a tender of wild-'.'ani-,  mals had departed, for the port's of  the orient. For several years Ramchunda Singh had come over the sea  whenever a consignment of lions and  tigers' and elephants had been sent to  the South street animal 'dealers. He  tried-to get Scalds to empioy him. but  trade was dull,- and' Scalds said that.  he preferred the Irish to the Hindoos.  So it was that Ramchunda ' Singh,  educated Hindoo, learning of the new,  fad. from the Sunday newspapers, had  "I  HAVE  ALSO  A   TENDER A^D   SUSCEPTIBLE heaht." .;  applied for the position o.f curry cook  and had obtained it*   He resigned on  the day Mrs. Sprengle and cousin (took  luncheon at Cherry's.  The following morning found him at  the house of William Peterson Sprengle, dealer In scrap metal and disgustingly wealthy. Ramchunda Singh had  invested some of his hard earned wages  in a remarkable suit consisting of a  shiny Prince Albert coat, bought secondhand, and a pair of black trousers.  On his head was a. silk turban. He  had sent a note to Mrs. Sprengle explaining that hi! business was urgent  aud concerned the welfare of her husband.  ������������������I dine with you tonight," taid Ramchunda Singh gravely.  "To what am I indebted for the honor?", said Mrs. Sprengle, who had read  the etiquette books and the novels of  Martha M. Day and knew what was  proper under the circumstances.  "I overheard you say quite by  chance." said Ramchunda Singh, "that  you would give a great deal to have  your husband give up theosophy, which  takes too many of the purple pence  and makes him neglect his family and  his business." *  "You are the curry cook atCherry's!"  .exclaimed Mrs. Sprengle.  "Madam," rejoined Ramchunda  Singh. "I am a person of high caste, a  highly educated Hindoo. I shall be  able to restore your husband to his  senses, for I. too, was once a tbeoso-  pbis.t"  So it came to pass that on that very  night Mrs. Sprengle greeted' her husband with the remark that she had decided to learn something of theosophy  and had engaged as teacher Mr. Ramchunda Singh, late of Delhi and Calcutta, who was an adept.  With every dinner for a week or  more the peace of Ramchunda Singh  was given unto the house of Sprengle.  The lore of the East Indies was at the  command of the guest He talked of  Vedas, and the 'scantily fed soul of  William Peterson Sprengle was filled  with joy. Ramchunda Singh and the  master of the house went together to  the meetings of the theosophical society. Mrs. Sprengle noticed with growing apprehension that Ramchunda  Singh was dressing in elaborate style  and that be had all the spending money which he seemed to require. On  account of the introductions from the  head of the house of Sprengle, Ram  chunda Singh became the fashion. , Se  had a lithograph of himself made, and  before many days he was giving lectures at Pickering , hall on abstruse  subjects at SI per,head. At the home  of the Sprengles he was a regular visitor.

Sirs. Thos. Kettle,  of Petrolea," Out.,  is a case in point.    Mrs. Kettle is an  old resident of   this  district nnd.*   is  well    known.      Chatting    with  a  reporter   of   the  Topic    .the .other   day  the  conversation-drifted on  the subject "of  medicines,   when Mrs.   Mettle  spoke iri -tlie highest   praise  of   Dr.  Williams'     Pink.

Kettle gave him    the following-  particulars":. '"I am the mother " of  twel\e children and in,-spite    of   the  constant  strain  and worry   the raising of so large a family entailed upon me, in addition to my housework,  I was for many .years  blessed   with  splendid health.    Hpwover";   after  the  birth  of my last     child my strength  seemed to fail me and I felt that my  ���������health   was'gradually  going.    I  consulted, a doctor  and continued under  his  treatment  for  some  months,  but  the only result that 1 could see was  that 1 grew gradually worse. T could  not name any particular ailment that  I   suffered  from,   but I  was   "all run  down."    My   appetite   failed   me,   my  strength   seemed  all gone   and I became pale  and  listless,   scarcely able  to drag myself around,    and much of  the   time   in   bed.    I  became  alarmed  at my long  continued  ill-health, and  as doctor's medicine had done me no  good  J   determined   to   try   Dr.    Williams' Pink Pills.    I purchased a box  and thought.it did me some good, so  1- got six  boxes more,   and before   I  had  finished  taking   the   second I felt  a lot  better, 'and  by tho  time I had  finished     the  seven  boxes  I .'had perfectly' regained my'health,  had  gained weight and felt better than I had  for  some years.    I  consider  the  pills  a  splendid   medicine,   a  real  godsend  to weak and ailing women, and have  frequently  recommended   them   to my  friends  and  used  them with  my children,    always    with    good    results."  shipments are light, but from North  America, Russia and the Danube they  are,, liberal, and the amount on passage, tb ' Europe is very large and  shows no - decrease fr.orn week to  week.
