The Colliery Co., are   fitting   up
the old "Big Store"   into   comfortable offices and freight houses.This
will be a great convenience   to   the
public, being close to the business
centre of the town, and a boon to the
Company's .officials.    Mr. Clinton
deserves a good   office   after   long
years in the present cramped quarters.    A   brick   powder   magazine
has been built near the station, cemented inside and  with   a   cinder
court for 50   feet   all   around   the
building outride.    It   Is   perfec ly
fire-proof, and moreover,   well   out
of the way of traffic in   case   of   a
possible explosion.

If  yon   are  experiencing   any  >of these symptoms it   is a sign that the  blood and nerves  need -attention,   and  -for this purpose   Dr.    Williams'   Pink  Pills'for Pale People  ate woman's best  friend.    They are particularly adapted  as a   regulator   of the ailments that  -afflict women, and through   the  blood  ���������and nerves act  upon the whole system,  bringing biightness to the   eye,   and a  glow of health to the   cheeks.    Thousands of grateful   women  have testified  ��������� to the benefit derived from" the use  of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Among those who freely acknowledge  ,the benefit deri\fd from this great  - medicine is Mre. Jas. Hughes, of Dro-  more, P. E. I.,a lady who possesses the  respect and esteem of all who know  her. : Mrs. Hughes speaks of,her illness  and. cure as follows: '"Until about  four years ago.I ,had .always enjoyed,  good health, and was looked upon as  one who possessed a robust constitution. Then I began to grow weak, was  troubled with severe headaches, and  frequently with violent pains in the  region of my heart.'from which I would  only find ease1 through hot applications.  My stomach also gave me1 much  trouble, and did not appear to perform  its customary functions.    I   was treat-  ��������� ed by a skillful doctor,but although un-  ���������der his care for several months, I f<rew  gradually weaker and weaker, until  finally I was not able .to leave roy.bed.  Then I called in another doctor, .whose  treatment, although continued for some  eight months, was equally fruitless.' I  was scarcely able to hold my head up,  and was so nervous that I was crying  half the time. My condition can-best  be described as pitiable. At this time  a fr.end brought me' a1 newspaper in  which was the story of a. cure of a woman whose "case was in 'many respects  similar to mine, through the use of Dr.  4 Williams'   Pink Pills.    I tlun decided  that I would give the pills  a fair' trial.  When I began the use of the pills I was  in such a conditioi". that the doctor told  me I would always be   an   invalid.     I  used   four boxes of   the  pills  before I  noticed any benefit,  and    then I  could  ���������see they were helpiug me. I used twelve  (-boxes in all, covering   a  treatment   of  > nearly six months,   when I was as well  -as evtr I had been   in   my   life,   and I  i have ever" since   enjoyed   the   best  of  ^health.     I believe there would be few-  ��������� er   suffering   women   throughout  the  world if they would do ������.s  I did���������give  -ODr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair trial.  'A medicine that is not right is worse  "than no medicine at all���������much   worse.  'Substitutes -are   not right; more than  ���������that,   they^are   genprally   dangerous.  When you buy Dr. Williams'Pink Pills  ifor Pale People be   sure  that  the full  >name is on the wrapper   around  every  "kbox.

Among them'it  was,quite possible that both'steamers,  and all in them,, might have been  spewed up as battered refuse high upon  the African beach. But, as Providence  ordered it, the tornado circled down on  them no more; a light air came off the  shore which filled 'their scanty canvas  and gave them just steerage way, and  they rode over the swells in company  as dry as a pair of bridge pontoons and  about as. helpless. All immediate danger was swept away. Nothing but another steamer could relieve them, and  in the meanwhile it was a time tor  philosophy.  Captain Kettle did not grumble. His  fortune was once more adrift and beyond his grasp. The Parsee iu Bombay  would for a certainty dismiss him from  employment, and Mrs. Kettle and her  family must continue to drag along on  such scanty doles aB he' could contrive  to send them. All these were distressing  thoughts, but they were things not to  be remedied, and he took down the accordion and made sweet music, which  spread far over tho moving plains of  ocean.  But Mr. McTodd had visions of more  immediate profit. He washod with soap  until his face was brillia-., i*ui on a  full suit of slouchest serge, took boat  and rowed over to the rolling Germau  liner. It was midnight wheuke return-  ���������fl, iaffluent in pocket and rather deep  in liquor. He went into the oharthouEe  without invitation, smiled benignly  and took a camp stool.   ���������  "They thought they would get me  down into the messroom over yonder,"  said he, "and I'll no'deny it was a  temptation. I could have telled those  Dutch engineers a thing'or two. But  I'm a' for business first when there is  siller ahead. So I went aft to the saloon. They were at dinner, and there  were puir appetites among them. But  some one spied me standing by the door  and lugged me into a seat and gave me  meat and drink���������champagne, no less���������  and set me on to talk. Lord, once I got  my tongue wagging, ye should have  seen them I There was no more eating  done. They wanted to know how near  death they'd been, and I telled 'em, and  there was the old man and all the brass  edged officers at the ends of the tables  fit to eat me for giving the yarn away.  But a (hie) fat lot I cared. I set on the  music, and they sent round the hat.  Losh! There was ������24 English when  they handed it over to me. Skipper, ye  should go and try it for yersel'."  "Mr. McTodd,"said tho little sailor,  "I am not a dashed mendicant."  The  engineer  stared  with a  boiled  Effective Pirn yer.  A very nice and'gently'curate went  to a Yorkshire parish where the parishioners bred horses and sometimes raced them. He was asked to invite the  prayers of the congregation for Luck  Gray. He did so. They prayed three  Sundays for Luck'Gray. On the fourth  the clerk told the curate he ueed not  do it any more.  "Why?" asked the curate. "Is she  dead?"  "No," said the clerk; "she's won the  steeplechase."  The curate became quite a power in  the parish.  eye and swayed on his camp stool. - He  had not quite grasped the remark.

"When Insects Sleep.  There is no doubt that all insects except those like the May fly, which die  very soon after they are born, take rest.  Some of them take from 10 to 20 hours'  rest at a time, as, for instance, butter-���������  flies, which remain' fixed to certain  spots for days together. Some caterpillars and moths like rest during the day,  appearing only at night; while insects  of the bee and wasp tribe do their work  by day and slumber at night.  Beetles may often be found during  the daytime with their legs drawn Up  under their bodies in a condition suggesting repose; while it is well known  that they make their depredations principally by night.  Some insects, again, take a long  period of rest durinq the winter months,  and it is certain that insects, like any  other family of animals, enjoy periods'  of repose, though, as they cannot close  their eyes, it seems hardly right to, call  this sleep.

"Hearing of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,  she began to use it and was benefited  from the very first. It proved an excellent remedy, in restoring her to health  and strength. After having used four  boxes she is now at work again, healthy  and happy, and attributes her recovery  to the use of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.,  It also helped her through a very severe  attack of la grippe.

Her name was on tbe sheet. In fact, it  was addressed to her. She looked at tbe  date. It was a month overdue. ��������� Slowly  she read the lines, her pale cheeks hotly  flushing as she proceeded.

He looked  at her wonderingly.   "Could it be possible  that quite by mistake a letter could slip  into a  packet  addressed  to me?    A  personal letter, unfinished and unsigned."  The hot blood surged to his cheeks.  "What do you mean?" he asked.  She opened her purse and drew forth a  folded letter, opening it as she passed  it  to   him.     His   face   paled   and   his   hand  trembled as he read the few lines.    "It is  a declaration of love, is it not, John?"  "It is a declaration of folly." he murmured. "But you know I never meant  you to see it."  "But you meant it when you wrote it.  John?"  "God  knows  1   meant it."    He looked  up at her with a sudden fire in his eyes.

At times I may have fancied  love could span the chasm.    One of these  fits of folly came  upon  me two months  ago.     I   went   to   Paris   to   tell   you   my  love, and then my courage failed me.     1  came   home   and   began   that   letter.     A  wiser impulse seized me, and  I tossed it  aside.

Results of'the many" lessons taught  by the naval battles of the Uniied  States Avar with Spain arc'ishowing  themselves. in the types of vessels  which are being constructed, or for  which appropriations are aSKed, for  the navies of Europe.  In a report to. the naval intelligence bureau Lieut. Com. George'H.  Peters, U. S. N.; considers the principal foreign navies with a" view of  noting recent tendencies of development and observes as the most striking feature ' the marked effort  now making r by the important  maritime powers to increase their  naval strength. Never before, except, perhaps, spasmodically during  a naval war, -has such endeavor been  more vigorous or more general.  ,In  the  apportionment, of   new  tonnage, the large   share set    apart    for  battleships^,      notwithstanding     their  great    cost,    shows  that    responsible  naval  opinion  regards   them    as   constituting   the'real    fighting    strength'  upon   which   reliance  must  be  placed  to win' naval battles.  .   As battleships are intended to have  the  ^ greatest     possible   fire,.- energy,,  with   the  best .protection  attainable;  their  gun 'fire must be the maximum  which  their  displacement   . will" per-;  mit,' and the     latest-    naval      expert'  opinion is practically unanimous that  their' armor 'must   not only protect  the  waterline  and  the gun   positions,  but that.the   hull and    the   personnel  must be effectively sheltered.  The typical features-of the battleship, maximum offensive and defensive power, .are not dependent on circumstances, but are ready at all  times. Speed varies with conditions  of service, and for' battleships is regarded, as a secondary consideration,  although a very important one. Other things being equal, the more efficient of two fleets' oft battleships will  be the'one whose slowest ship is. faster than the slowest ship of the enemy. The aim now is to have the  battle fleet composed of.ships having  great offensive power and,, the best  protection obtainable, with a minimum, speed of not less than 15 knots.  ^.While some of the units may be capable of 18 knots, there should be none  which cannot be depended on" for tacr  tical evolutions at 15 knots .- speed.  To attain this, obsolete A-essels must  be replaced or modernized in accordance with' the latest developments in  engineering. '    ,    _  Next in importance to the battleship is the , armored cruiser, which  forms a prominent feature of the lat-  scotiting or of search be adopted, the  finding of a fleet at sea must always  remain a very difficult problem.  Very small' cruisers and light-  draught gunboats continue to be provided, their number and varying  qualities depending upon the special <  needs of the different navies - for  crus-ing or for minor shoal-water  operations.  With     regard to torpedo  boats and  destroyers   naval    opinion   is  practically unanimously that the ;recent war  has     thrown    no     now   light    on the  question   of' their   value     when   used ^  for   the  purposes for   which  they  are'  h������i.onded.  -Tomedo    boat   destroyers,  however, simply larger torpedo boats  with   increased - gun . armament ' "and  better   sea-going   qualities,   are   coming more and more into favor as the-  best type.

An ancient legend tells us that one  day as Orpheus, son of Apollo and the  muse Calliope, was walking by the sen.  trilling in soft cadence a song taught  him, by the celebrated teacher Linos,  he was attracted by the sound of sweet  music, which seemed but the echo of  his own glorious voice. He walked  along, singing, and the sound approached, as if to meet him, till finally  it sang at his very feet.  Glancing down, he saw the shell of a  turtle, which had been cast high *nd  dry upon the beach and left there by  the receding waves. The little thing  had died and dried up so that only the  sinews, shriveled to strings, and the  shell remained. The dried up sinews  were tightly stretched across the hollow shell, and the wind, as it listed,  touched the strings, causing them to  vibrate over the shell sounding board  and give forth the sweet, sad tones.  Enchanted, he bore his treasure home  and from it fashioned the viol shell,  with which he ever after accompanied  his voice, and the nymph Eurydice. enchanted by its magic, became his bride.  ���������National Magazine.

Vessels of this type have primarily high  speed and great coal endurance; they  are usually of large size and are given  as much protection and as intense fire  energy as practicable, but these qualities are secondary. It is felt that  they may be used to supplement the  /leet of battleships if necessary in  maintaining command of the sea at  strategic points, and are most useful adjuncts of such a fleet. Their  size, speed and armament enable them  to engage successfully any except  battleships. They are regarded as  the most effective type for carrying  on a cruiser war of depredation.  Armored   coast   defense   vessels    appear to be practically ignored in present programmes,'for  the     increase    of  modern  fleets.     There are    two     reasons for this,  the first being the general belief that naval force     will     be  mainly     employed     in      sea    contests  rather than in merely defending home  shores against attacks by the enemy.  The second reason for     not    building  new armored   coast-defense  vessels   is  that in the European navies it is felt  that     they     already have a. sufficient  number   of  vessels   of   this   type,   and  that future needs will be  supplied  by  taking  from  the  active  armored  fleet  the older' vessels  as  these are replaced from time     to     time by  others of  later  type.     In   the British navy,     in  pursuance   of   this   plan,   the   obsolete  ships     formerly     stationed in      home  waters     as    coast-guard    and    port-  guard ships have been succeeded      by  vessels   which,     though   old,  are  still  efficient..     The   monitor   type   is     regarded   abroad   as   having   been   thoroughly   discredited   by   the   experience  of   the   United      States   in   their   war  with Spain.  The  need  of  making  liberal   provision  for. the     building  of cruisers      is  fully     recognized.       Their       essential  qualities  are     speed,     coal  endurance  and means  of  coaling rapidly;     with  these characteristics     their usefulness  will.be so great that no admiral will  be likely to feel  that he haii     enough  of     them.        It  is  generally  accepted  I that this is as true of cruisers to-day  I as it was of fast frigates in the days  i of    Nelson.

Lord   Beauchanip,   the   Governor   of  New  South   Wales,   has   had   a   novel  experience.      While on  a visit  to  the  colliers   of   Newcastle   he   was   entertained   at  a   banquet   in   a  coal  mine  300 feet below  the    surface     of     the  earth.      In   a  chamber   90  feet    long,  15 feet  wide and  nine feet high,  seventy guests  sat  down   to  dinner. The  novel   dining   room   showed   no   signs  of   what    it   had     been,    for    electric  lights,   flags,   evergreens   and   carpets  had   transformed   it   into   an    elegant  aoartment.

Therefore   when   a   servant -recently   informed   her   mistress   that   a  strange man had called and said that,  he had come to "measure for a coal  scuttle"   the   mistress   was   naturally  alarmed.-   The man came again, however, bringing with him three others,  and then it appeared that he had come  to put in an electric wire and box for  messenger   service.     What   he   really  meant to tell the servant in the first  place was that he bad come to measure  for the "call box."   He had apparently  broadened it into "coal box," and the  servant had repeated it as 'k:oai scuttle."���������New York Mail and Express. i������w������u<whhii  ^ll'M������"������w**"l"'ltullt"w'w<,w  lilt-  |.f>'  I'* r  pi  lilllig  |!$?^I?5JA  l!-v-:l'.  & ctjm:bek.x.a'Njd news  Issued Every ^Tuesday.

VILLAGE COURTSHIP  <���������;  There Was a Quarrel.  Tkea There Was a Wedding.  1      .  <S> BY JULIET BRADLEY.  t It was just such a parlor as we have all  seen a hundred times���������white curtains at  the window, a pair of tete-a-tetes facing  each other brthodoxly from opposing cor-  . ners, an open piano and'a table whereon  lay a "few pretty volumes, the gilt sides  uppermost. The young men of the village knew no spot more desirable" in  which to spend anevening.  Such at least had always been the opinion of Harry Reynolds, and sitting there  through the enchanted evening he could  picture' only one scene more agreeable.'  The good papa called out on, business,  Rosalie Allies, flushing and confused, and  not very far away another person drawing her on to all manner of delicious, unimaginable confessions.  But on the particular occasion when  our story opens this pleasant scene hardly appeared to be- the point of realism.  The two were indeed alone, but the  -young-man stood with his hand on the  door, a look of grief and displeasure on  his face, while the little lady in'the armchair was deep iif an unmistakable pout.  "If I go, Rosalie," he said, "remember  that I shall not return." He made a step  toward her and continued, "Have you  not a word for me, Rosalie?"  "I   do   not  think   of anything   further  that I wish to say," she responded coldly.  Harry gazed at her a moment and then  rushed from the room.  "Cold hearted, selfish girl!" he exclaimed as he walked homeward in a wretched  state of mind.   ��������� >   ,-  For a. few seconds after his departure  Rosalie retained her indifferent position,  but all her senses were alive to catch his  lightest movement. Of course he would  - return, and when he behaved properly  and asked her pardon and submissively'  ���������he shoukThave it, but to-be lectured and  scolded in that manner was more than  she would bear. In vain did she listen.  Ah hour," then two, then three hours,-  passed by. and,, sick at heart, Rosalie  ' went up to her own room and cried herself to sleep.  Rosalie (| was warm hearted and quick  tempered,'but was easily appeased. She  was also passionately fond of admiration  ��������� and quite as much bent on having her  own way as was good for her. These  faults, however, did not. prevent the village beans from being at hor disposal,  , and hitherto she had been nearly impartial in her treatment of them, having no  mind to give up the general homage by  fixing upon one.  - But lately there had been a difference  in her feelings. She had acknowledged  :that there was a charm in Harry Reynolds' attentions, such as she had never  found in any other. A thrill new and delicious went through her when their eyes  met, and she read the admiration which  he vainly tried to repress. Harry had a  high ideal of womanly excellence which  : Rosalie by no means came up to, but in  spite of her frivolities and his own misgivings they were frequently together  and fast verging toward an explanation,  when that fate which' appears to delight the destiny of lovers introduced an  element of discord into their happiness.  ' Mr. Clarence Dalton came up from the  city on a visit to his uncle. He was  handsome, wealthy, agreeable and noted  for the careful elegance of his attire. The  girls were enchanted with'him, and Rosalie alone regarded him with seeming  indifference. She said to herself with  virtuous resolution she must be careful  now. Harry might be wounded if she  received attentions from such a lion.  Happy for her had this prudent disposition lasted. But the old spirit came up  after awhile. She was entirely accustomed to queening it in her little world,  and her vanity was piqued that Mr. Dalton did not at'all seem struck by .her  charms. It was quite a Christian duty  to give Mr. Dalton a lesson in good taste.  So by a few little-feminine lures such as  a pretty girl weli knows how to practice  he was attracted to her side, and once  there he seemed exceedingly well pleased  to stay.  At last Harry could endure it no longer  and in the interview whose close we have  portrayed determined to "put his fortune  to the touch, to win or lose it all." Conscious of her power, indignant with some  justice that he should assume to dictate  her conduct when he had never openly  declared his love, Rosalie had responded  by a series of flippant, exasperating little  speeches which drove Harry almost to  despair. She intended to relent in time,  but pride, vanity and, a certain triumph  in knowing that his whole manly heart  was hers to play with at will wrought  sad mischief.  Rosalie had no doubt that Harry would  come the uext evening as usual, and all  could easily be made right again. But  the evening came and went and no Harry. What could it meanV Surely he loved her, and if so he could not stay away.  She would wait patiently, since it was all  that she could do.  The next evening Mr. Dalton called,  but Rosalie sent down word that she was  ill and asked to be excused. Yet as night  after night went by and Harry did not  return her submissive mood changed.  She   would   show   Mr.   Harry   Reynolds  that she was not suffering from the withdrawal of his presence! There were other people quite delighted to be in her  company.  The next time Mr.' Dalton came she did  not decline to see him, but came down  and was as friendly and pleasant as  could be desired. Tbe young man noticed  a more womanly thoughtfulness in her  manner than he had hitherto observed  and wondered what might be the cause.  Poor Harry's state-meanwhile was far  ' from enviable. For the first 24 hours he  maintained a-fierce resentment. But as  the days came and-went he softened little  by little until every harfih sentiment had  ^nnifc'x1* and a determination, seized him  to seek Rosalie and try to efface the  memory of his previbus sternness.  Toward evening he wended his way to  her home with the sweetest anticipations  of reconciliation and affection. With every step she seemed to grow lovelier and  dearer than before. But as he neared the-  gate a sight met his eyes which speedily  cooled down the fervid tones of his fancy  painting. It was Mr. Dalton. assisting  Rosalie to dismount from her horse. The  exercise had brought a bright flush to her  cheek, and she was fairly dazzling. She  perceived Harry in time to bestow on  him a very distant bow and then turned  with added empressement to her companion. Harry changed his intentions at  once, walked by the house iu the most  leisurely and indifferent manner and proceeded to call upon that obnoxious Nellie  Kcllis, whoni Rosalie regarded so superciliously.  ' Mr. Dalton meanwhile found his affairs  in a somewhat perplexing state. Flirtation had been since his eleventh year the'  element in which he delighted to exist.  Matrimony, .with its cares and responsibilities^ was -to' him "the < most ��������� distant' of  prospects and" must offer extra inducements to make him forsake his freedom.  Now, however, he began- to feel himself  very seriously interested in a person who  had not one claim to fashion, family or  fortune, a little village girl who wore  dresses of her own fitting and made all  the' pies and cakes that appeared on her  table. Whether she, really cared for him  or regarded him as a friend or'simply as  an admirer was impossible to say.  jOther people wore not as slow in drawing their conclusions, and before three  weeks were over- the village authorities  in such cases declared that it would be a  match.  Harry could not in his heart deny the  reasonableness of their predictions. He  had the grief of believing that his wishes,  .hopes,and affections were nothing to Rosalie. Yet had he anything but his own  harshness to blame' for the change? He  was - miserable, but his own act had  caused the misery.  Mr. Dalton had- a mother living, a  .stately lady of some forty odd years, well  preserved and a. leader of society. Clarence was her only boy and the object of a  great many ambitious dreams. The. marriage which looked to him so misty and'  far away was to her a very near reality.  She had selected a girl~of his rank for a  wife. when, lo, there came a rumor that  struck her to the heart! Could it be that  Clarence was about to make a fool of  himself? She wrote a letter to her son  in which she expressed perfect confidence  in his discretion and her' assurance that  he would do nothing foolish or imprudent.  Mr. Clarence's brow as he read the maternal effusion was clouded with thought.  Where, in the name of common sense,  could there be any danger in a marriage  with such a charming girl, as Rosalie  Ames? As for the danger of her heart,  he wished he were a little surer of it. He  felt at that moment that his own was in  a much more perilous position than hers.  As Harry walked that afternoon along  the broad road leading from his home he-  was attracted by almost inarticulate  groans, and, looking a few yards into the  distance, he saw a senseless form lying in  his path, while" a mad horse dashed furiously down tbe road. As he drew nearer he thoroughly recognized the dark,  tasteful riding suit which he had seen  Dalton wear so often before. ;, And. passing from-the "clothing," his''eyes' rested upon the face, pale as death, of the unconscious man.  Good and bad angels tugged.at Harry's  soul for one moment in a mortal conflict.  What call had he to interfere in his behalf? The sneering fop who had blighted  all his hopes! Let him stay there and  die. t But in the next moment, forgetting  all but the welfare of his fellow being,  he snatched off his overcoat and raised  Dalton's head and rested it upon it: Then  with frantic haste he summoned aid, and  all that skill and care could do was employed for the sufferer's restoratiou.  Harry hung over him, pale and agonized,  the accusing voice ever ringing in his  ears. "God forgive me," he said, "that  wicked delay!" ��������� '  At last signs of-returning life were visible, and ere long the physicians assured  the watchers around that all was hopeful. Rest and good nursing alone were  needed.  At this Harry quietly stole away and  . resumed his walk. Wandering thus, quite  forgetful of the outer world, he encountered a well known form-^Rosalie stood  in his path, with her cheeks pallid, her  eyes swollen with weeping. She did not  seek to avoid him as she had often done  of late, but seemed awaiting him to  speak. He took her hand. She did not  withdraw it.   He felt that she knew all.  "Don't hate me," he *aid. "I deserve  no credit. I almost turned to leave him,  for hatred and jealousy had possession of  me, and if he had died I should have  been his murderer. But it was for you,  Rosalie. I loved you so! For I have  saved him only to render certain the destruction of my own happiness."  Rosalie looked up at him with brimming eyes. "I don't see why," she said  softly. "I am sure that nobody wishes  to make you unhappy."  Now, I cannot say whether this statement appears to you particularly lucid,  but Harry was clever enough to understand it instantly. All the troubles, trials  and misgivings of the last few weeks dispersed like mists before the sun, and content took the place of wretchedness in  those two reunited hearts.  Clarence Dalton made a very stylish  best man at the wedding of his preserver.  and, judging from his devoted manner to  the maid of honor, I pronounce that he  did not suffer irremediably from his loss.  As for his mother, I believe she blesses  to this day1 the friendly accident- that  saved her darling from so terrible a misalliance.���������Brooklyn Citizen. .  An ObIi<?lnff Babn.  Julian Ralph, in Harper's, gives a pic-  ' tare of a babu (an English speaking Hindoo) that none of Kipling's .writings gives.  "Mr. Ralph and a friend presented what  sounded like'a simple letter of introduction to a Hindoo clerk in India, and the.  next morning the babu presented himself  to the Americans and said that - while  they were in' India he was their servant.  He had put his business in other hands  and would act as courier for them during  their stay. , He refused any compensation  and' regularly deducted any commission?  offered him by merchants from the price  of goods. In one case he obtained silver  ornaments for them at an .advance of  only one-sixteenth of the bullion value.  When asked the secret in" the letter of  introduction that made him give up his  business to serve a stranger, he said that  it was friendship���������that friendship was a  holy thing and bound one to heavy obligations.

"It Is commonly believed that the  ��������� sapphire-is known only, as a gem-of-a  rich velvety blue, in color." observed an  experienced dealer In precious stones  to the writer'the other" day. "As a  matter of fact; the sapphire occurs in  various hues. In Ceylon, for instance,  where the finest, specimens of this gem  are found, it ranges from the soft velvety blue to the peacock blue, graduated In the latter to an almost faultless  white. It also occurs In whites, greens  and yellows, the . latter shade being  known as the oriental topaz and the  green the oriental emerald.  ���������  "The white sapphires are often founds  clouded or streaked with blue, sor that  many specimens are cut, which are  white when looked at transversely, but  having a bit of fine blue tint on the under point Then there Is the red sapphire, or Ceylon ruby. It is valued as  highly as the finest Burmese rubies/  Those, most highly prized, are of rich  pigeon blood or rose red color.  "Some very, fine sapphires- have been  found in Montana during the past" ten  years.'

LITTLE TOMMY'S DRINK.  It Vm Very Important to Him, but  Not to His Parents.  Every night since Tommy was 2  years old he has wakened. about 2  o'clock and has called to his mother  for a drink of water, says the Chicago  Tribune. She sleeys in the same room  with him, and it has been her nightly  task to get up and go out to the kitchen  for a glass of water. Tommy is now 4  year* old, and his fond parents made  up their minds one day last week that  it was time he reformed and gave his  mother a chance to get an unbroken  night's rest. UA small stand was put  close to his little bed, with a glass of  water-on it. Then his father, for the  sake of the additional paternal sternness, gave Tommy his orders.  "Now, when you wake up tonight,  Tommy," said the stern parent, "and  want a drink of water, you are ' to  reach out and get it, and on no account  are you to wake up your mother. You  are too old a boy to make your poor  mother get up and wait on you."  Tommy could not see the logic in this  argument, and he went to sleep in a  rather angry frame of mind.  , At the usual time in the morning his  mother heard the young man stirring  around in his bed, but, for the sake of  discipline, she kept perfectly quiet. Finally he sat up in bed and reached out  his hand, groping around in the darkness for the glass of water. Then came  a moment of silence.  "I dess wiss," said Tommy, speaking to himself in a shrill whisper, "I  dess wiss I spill every darn drop.!'  Tbe Rooster Was (*anie.    .'fe-  A Rockland young man is the owner  of a smart rooster and has long entertained suspicion that the bird might  have inherited gamy characteristics  from some long forgotten ancestor. To  apply this theory in an actual test he  went home the other, night, surreptitiously, conveyed the parlor mirror into  the ben pen and Ifeld it before the gaze  of the wondering rooster.  The young man was not kept long in  suspense as to the bird's fighting qualities. After a brief, incredulous glance  at the proud- reflection in the glass the  rooster descended upon the object with  spurs set and wrath' gleaming from  each beadlike eye. There were a crash,  a smash and a clatter, and when the  dust and feathers cleared away the  young - sportsman ��������� stood, a dismayed  spectator, in the center of a, pile of  ruins formed of broken mirror, slats  and pulverized plate glass.  He is now satisfied with the rooster,  but how he squared himself about tbe  broken mirror is not known.���������Bangor  Whig and Courier.  Fairly Good Time.

Some of these grassy patches among  the bowlders are, however, inaccessible  to the cattle, but it would never do to-let  that excellent mountain grass, which'produces such rich milk and gives such delicious flavor to the butter and the >  cheese, go to waste.' The sturdy peasant lads and lassies" climb into the most  inaccessible places and cut the grass,  thus increasing their winter stores by.  many tons of excellent hay.  A   very   ingenious  means of transport  has   been  devised   for  getting  the grass  from  these  meadows among the clouds  down into the vnlleys below, consisting of  a wire rope along which the bundles of  grass are sent sliding down to the���������farms  .of the fiord.
