Mr. Bryce,  M.P., spoke-recently before  members  of  the , Irish    Literary  Society    on    "The    Hill    of     Tara,"  Tara,    he    said,    for   three     hundred  years   had   remained   the   centre    and-  heart   of the   Iri.-h    monarchy,      or  what    was*   undcrstpod    as    a    monarchy.    It was the scene of the triennial assemblies, like those at Delphi,  where    the ��������� poets sang,  the lawyers  argued,  and the harpists harped, and  also,   as    the     poets ' had  described,  where everyone  drank  all   the    week.  (Laughter.)     Tara  was  about  twen-  ,'ty-two  miles  northwest of Dublin, in  ;��������� County Meath.     The top  of the hill  'Was nearly HOO feet above sea level,  ���������and'is  raif*ed  about   200  feet  above  the surrounding country.       Although  there were places  of  interest to antiquarians, such  as Stonehenge,     Ave-  bury,   Penrith,   and     Orkney,    which  had  a history    later    than     that    of  Taea,  there  we're no  data concerning  them.    They knew more about Tara,  , for events of the second century were  clearly     indicated.       Tara    remained  the centre of Irish Government down  to  560  A.D.     Tt Was racorded    that  St.   Patrick  visited   there   in  433   A.  D., and there succeeded in  alienating  the  Gaelic people from their old belief.     After 1hat the place was cursed  by  the  priests,   e.nd  finally  abandoned.     The  Kings     of Irelcnd  still,  however,   retained  the  name  of  Tara  in  their official  designation.   The hill  was   ihe  capital  of  a  kingdom which  should make people realize the many-  sided  life  of a primitive  people,    the  home  of    the   oc?.le'-iastic.   the legal,  the  political and  festive life of a nation..

'' Before them w,as seated a white  haired man, whose almost entirely  sightless eyes were hidden behind a  pair of dark- glasses.

Closely he bent  his face to the glass and hesitatingly  reached his hand toward the belL  ''Mother," whispered 'the manly"boy,  "may I not ask him where he wants  to get off and help him too"?'' *  One glance at the proud,' pale face,  find the little mother answered:  "No,   son;  1 dou't believe he  would  like to bo made feel dependent.".

She  was thinking only of her girlhood,  when Hackett's friendship bad been  such a very dear thing; when, she  would have given him���������promised him���������  anything he might ask, but he had not  asked.  The coon singer had finished, and the  softer strains of a popular waltz floated  out on the-night ::ir. A great wave of  tenderness swept over Leslie Burns.  Why should she stand between the  man she had loved and the happiness  lie now craved?  Alas for the confuliug, complacent  Mrs. Cuscadden and her maternal  plans!  Mrs. Burns drew her cape more  closely and shivered slightly. A shadow fell across the bar of light streaming from the gangway. A voice clear,  but not loud, broke the silence brooding on the deck.  "May I have my cigar out here with  you. Mrs. Burns?" Then as he dropped  into the chair at her side: "What a  bore one's traveling companions become directly land is sighted! 1 don't  blame you for getting off to yourself."  "Oh. it wasn't that exactly," murmured Mrs. Burns. Then, with the air  of trying to fill in an awkward pause,  she added: "But there is a subtle joy  <������ i gicatning. r  There's   no"-place   in  ������ | wc:-ld just like New York to us."  "Shall   you   stop  in   town?"   queried  Hackett.  "-lust a day or so.   I've a week prom-  ised to Mrs. Davenport at Tuxodo."  "Glad 'to' hear that. 1 shall be in  Tuxedo next week.

The renin rl: sounded strange-  Ay fiat to Mrs.. Burns, and instant!".- she  wished she had nt given vent to her  thought. Again she covered an awK-  ward pause. "Dear5 me, I 'wondesr  'where Ruth is this very minute."  "When I saw her hist, dancing witbr  young Ransome.   A harmless youth,' I t ,  assure you," he added whimsically'as  Mrs.   Burns  made - a   motion   to   rise.  '  "Don't go, please, until��������� I have some-   -  thing I must tell you before wc land."  It was coming., The guilty chaperon  closed her eyes  figuratively  and  pre- ,  pared to take the plunge. .She would  pledge her aid and give ,it  ."Leslie"��������� .       '  She started.   Five years had passed?  since she had heard that name from his-   '  lips.   Vaguely she-wished he had commenced some other way.       'r   '  "Do you remember when father sent  me abroad?

I   never  dreamed  that   you ,were   waiting' for '  me to say so.

'   ���������  The  woman rat;his side  started, to ���������-  speak,  but he waved,her aside.   The   *  crimson ..glow of his cigar had turned- ,  to gray- ashes, but he, still clutched it    '  between his fingers.       ' '  "The letter announcing your engage- r  ment reached me in Madrid.-  I've never- -  been in^the God forsaken hole since. -  When I reached America, you and your    ':  husband had gone abroad.

Leslie," his tone was actually,-  commanding, "I want to know why."  The woman had been listening with,  bowed bead, but with a strangely happy light gleaming in her eyes. , Hesitat- >  ingly, incoherently, she explained her-  conduct in Paris, in London and aboardt  ship. Before she finished Hackett, possessing himself of both her hands, ex-"  claimed:  "Aud you really thought it was that '"  child! Oh, Leslie, Leslie, couldn't you.. ,  read the truth in my eyes?"  Mrs. Burns suddenly recalled her du^  ties as chaperon. She withdrew her  hands from his masterful grasp.  "How could I look you in the eye  when I knew I was unfaithful to the  trust imposed on me by Mrs. Cuscadden?"  The old piquant humor rang in her  voice. She had risen. From the saloon  came the tintinnabulation of light  music. The deck was free from prome-  naders. They were alone for the first  time in five years.  ***** *        *  "Oh, what will Mrs. Cuscadden say?"  Hackett bent over her to gather up  her wraps.  "I really don't seo that she has anything to do with out-little affair, provided you return her daughter heart whole  and free from international entanglements."  he answered joyously.  A shadow fell across the bar of light,  then another, and the figure of a girl  was silhouetted against the brilliant interior of the ship.  "Mrs.  Burns, where are you? .We're-���������  to have a good old fashioned Virginia  reel   to   celebrate   our   last   night   on  board.    Do hurry up!  We have a partner waiting for you!"  Then as Hackett's dark figure suddenly loomed up behind Mrs. Burns he  glanced mischievously at Ruth and exclaimed, with a happy ring of ownership in his voice:  "Won't I do for her partner? I rather  think this dance- is mine!"        ���������  Enrlr.  "You will come home early, won't  you?" she said as he was starting for  the club.  "Oh. yes; I'll be home early," he replied.  "But of course, dear," she persisted,  "you understand that I mean early tonight, not early tomorrow morning."  .  0  -- ^ ���������������  -. hi  Ht-.'t tkmm  C. ;H, TARBELL.

Seven  dollars ��������� a  . ' .week and her three meals daily, with  absolutely nothing to do but hand out  keys and mail!' The hotel was within  ' walking distance of their home, so she  could save every cent of her salary, to  say nothing of what her mother could  save on their table in her absence.  Mrs. Rugg'les had the old fashioned  southern   prejudice   against   business  life for women.   In a vague way she  realised that it was perhaps a particularly   perilous   position   in   which   to  ���������    place her pretty daughter.0 Then,-too,  she looked forward with dread to the  three'meals,alone each day.  Little did  her daughter  realize  how  much   she  '",would save on the table;, how seldom  she would set-forth  for herself more.,  than tea and bread and fruit.  Anstruther felt the rooted objection  ' .which every good, manly fellow must  'make' at   thought   of   his   sweetheart  [working for her daily'brcad. lie wanted to assume that burden himself, but  Elsa had insisted upon waiting until  ,   every  cent was  paid, on ���������"their   home  nest. Moreover, he disliked the publicity of it all, the phase of life which she  must, inevitably   see   day   after   day.  ,But; Elsa/alternately  pouted and cajoled until she won her point and was  duty installed as key and mail clerk,  at the Stuyvesant House.   <  "    At first she was radiantly happy in  her work.- The manager of tho hotel,  Mr.   Paxton,   had   been   her   father's  friend and,took more than passing interest in  his  new  employee. > It  was  pleasant" to   wear   her   long,   trailing  black skirt .and a fresh, dainty shirt  waist  every  day, and  to  sweep   into'  the dining room,  where well  trained  .waiters 'served  her.     And pleasanter  still vit was to buy certain little luxu-  ,' ries she had long wanted to add to her  (wedding outfit.  But by and by the serpent of envy  raised its head in her new found Eden.  The regular guests passed her. in such  'a bewildering variety of frocks that  her own simple outfit turned rusty in  ' her eyes.  Out of town people, in for a  few days' shopping, sent home C. O. D.  packages   that   made   her   own   purchase's look absurdly small.   She discovered that what appeared like luxuries to her were the everyday necessities   to   the   majority   of   Stuyvesant  House guests.   And why should these  women   who   carried ' their   beautiful  gowns with such poor grace be given  all the good things of life while she  had so little to set off her natural attractions? There were the two daughters of   a  Butte  mine  operator  who  iwore rings outside  their gloves  and  tipped   the  waiters   with   crisp   bills.  They had actually offered her a tip one  day  as   she   handed   out  their   keys.  Thinking of it all, a fever sometimes  burned in her veins that even the over-  iworked  electric   fan  above  her  head  could not counteract.  Many of the guests tried to patronize her, but she kept herself proudly in  hand. As for the men, she vouchsafed  them only the demurest "good morning" when they made frequent and  often unnecessary, trips to her desk.  This���������until Ainslee came. Ainslee represented a prominent New York importer, ordered his clothes from a  Broadway tailor, knew life and how to  enjoy it and had been a privileged  . guest at the Stuyvesant ever since he  had been on the road. He was a special favorite with Mr. Paxton,,.'who  granted him the unusual favor of an  introduction to the new clerk.  Ainslee was to stay a week this time.  When Mr. Paxton heard it. he regretted the introduction. Ainslee convinced  the head waiter that it was the diplomatic thing and likeAvise a pecuniary  advantage to that dignitary to give  him a seat at Miss Ruggles' table.  Later he assured his pretty table vis-avis that she was looking peaked and  pale. Her position was too confining.  She needed more fresh air in the evenings. Now, the very next night he must  run out to Lake Placid to meet a customer. Would she go along? It meant  a lovely trolley ride, dinner with music on tbe piazza and a summer spectacle at the Casino. It would take him  but a short time to go over business  details with his customer, and in the  meantime she could be drinking in  that much needed fresh air.  Elsa consulted both her mother and  her liance, but with an air of finality  that showed the futility'of .objections.  A note of complaint sounded in her  voice. She never went anywhere, while  everybody at the hotel seemed to live  for pleasure.    Anstruther might  have  gone' everywhere together, but that  now he was denying himself every  pleasure to make the final payment on  their home. Instead he kissed her long  and tenderly and said he felt quite  sure that Mr. Paxton would permit her  to meci. no one who was not a fit companion.  It was a'great evening for the unsophisticated Elsa, who did not realize  that the money Mr. Ainslee lavished  was his firm's and was used to entertain the customer rather than herself.  ' In,reality she was merely a side issue,  a reward that Ainslee felt he deserved  for the efforts he waa putting forth to  secure a new line of trade. It would  all appear in his expense account.  Then Ainslee was so different from  her own quiet lover! She wondered'if  all New York men would be like this���������  so excessively watchful of her comfort  in small things, so entertaining in their  persiflage and delicate in their flattery.  She wished that' Anstruther .had accompanied them. Lately he had seemed  so preoccupied and was less mindful of  her little needs when in public. ' Yet  when she reached home she was not  entirely sure that she-had enjoyed the  evening. Terhaps the serpent of discontent had raised his head too boldly  this time.  The.next evening as she was leaving  her post Mr. Paxton" came to her, wearing an'anxious, expression. The night  clerk had been taken ill, and the chief  day, clerk had been called to the bedside of a dying sister. Could she, would  shei stay on" duty until he could1secure  some one to relieve her? He would  gladly do so himself, but he had a political dinner on ' hand. Elsa promptly  sent word to her mother,* also a- message to Anstruther to call for her shortly after midnight, when some one would  surely be able to take her place.  rIt was her first experience with  night work, and she was entertained  by this new phase of hotel lifo���������the late  arrivals, tlie theater parties (for some  of the playhouses were still open), the  tired tourists returning from trips up  the lake. Midnight 'came,- but no Anstruther. The head. porter offered to  relieve her on watch and send her  , home in a cab, but she insisted upon  remaining, feeling sure that something  had detained Anstruther/  - One or'clock���������and 2! A,slight commotion echoed from the main corridor,  and a group of men.entered noisily,  Ainslee in the center. They stopped  and blinked' uncertainly at.the circle  of light surrounding the. office; then  . Ainslee, with* a remnant of���������the grace  ���������she had admired .the night .before,  strolled to the desk and stretched  forth his hand. -His' companions  watched him with wavering, watery  glances.  "Y'oughter been 'long tonight. We  turned   Lake   Placid  red���������bright   red.  It's shame for pretty girl like you"��������� ,  Something  in   Elsa's  horrified - gaze  checked his flow of words, and a hand  crunched down upon hisj shoulder.   It  was Anstruther, white to the lips, with  the delayed message in his pocket and  wrath in his soul.  Fairly throwing the intoxicated man  into the^arms of the head porter, who  had been roused from his nap behind  the telegraph desk, he strode round to  the door leading into the office. There  his manner changed. Elsa's trembling  figure and frightened face caused a  revulsion of feeling. Very gently he  reached for her hat and gloves. With  gentle deference he offered them to  her and held open the door for her to  pass out. To the porter as he passed  he spoke a few curt words. To the girl  he said nothing until they reached the  street���������then:  "We must have a cab, dearest. You  are still trembling."  Oh, the wealth of love and tenderness and protection in his tones! She  clasped his arm lovingly.  "No, no; let us walk. I want to have  time to think before I see mamma. She  must never know the.truth; it would  grieve her so, and I must find some reasonable excuse to offer her for leaving  the hotel at once."   ���������  And so, arm in arm and in the blessed silence of those who once more understand each other perfectly, they  walked away from the glare of the entrance into the shadowy street that led  toward���������home.  at Berlin." ,   - .^  The,king was so flattered by this answer, which showed that he was incapable of an act of injustice, that he  dismissed the mil lor, without further  entreaty and changed the plan of his  garden.

When Frederick built his famous palace of Sans Souci, there happened to be  a mill that greatly hampered him in  the execution of his plans, and he asked the miller for how much he would  sell it. The miller replied that for a  long series of years his family had  owned the mill, which had passed from  father to son and that he would not  sell it for any price. The king used  every solicitation, offered to build him  a mill in a better place' and pay him  besides any sum he might demand, but  the obstinate miller still persisted in  his determination to preserve the inheritance of his ancestors.  Irritated, at last by his conduct, the  king sent for him and said in an angry  tone:  "Why do you refuse to sell your mill  notwithstanding all the advantages I  have offered you?"  The miller repeated bis reasons.  "Do you know," continued the king,  "that I could take it without giving  you a penny?"  "Y'es," returned tlie miller calmly, "if  it were not for the chamber of justice  B:������by   CarrjapreM' and   ludinnH.  Colonel Bill Sterrett used to tell  about a man who went into the, Indian  Territory to sell baby carriages.  Everybody said he was crazy. It was  admitted that there was a fine crop of.  babies in tlie territory,"but no one  could see what the squaws, who wore  used to packing their offspring on their  backs, could do with baby carriages.  ' Still orders began to, come back, first  for dozens and then for' carloads, and  finally Sterrett went up to investigate,  lie went into one of ;the Indian villages.  ';Ahd I'll be dashed," said Colonel  Bill, "if I didn't see a dozen big fat Indians sitting in ' baby /carriages,, all  scrouged up, while the squaws' were  pushing them around.

A- man in an  apparently moribund condition was  recently taken into the Melbourne  Hospital, and in older to revive him  an electric shock was administered.  The results were startling and unexpected. A demoniac energy was instantaneously infused. He sent the  doctor sprawling on the floor jind  flung a couple of assistants out of  the window. Then he proceeded to  wreck the ward, while nurses ran  away shrieking and barricaded themselves. He had done a hundred  pounds' worth of damage before the  police, who were telephoned for, arrived.

The antiscorbutic properties of certain vegetables and fruits are in some  cases of fully equal value to their.nu-  tritive qualities, and the amount of  potash salts and mild vegetable salts  thus contributed to the blood is well  understood by physicians. The' rhubarb stalk is noted in this respect for  the malic acid and binoxalate of potash -which it contains. The acidity of  the lemon, orange and other species of  the genus citrus is caused by the abundance of citric acid in their juices;  that of the cherry, plum, peach, pear  and apple from the malic acid in their  pulp; that of gooseberries and currants  ���������red, black and white���������from a mixture  of malic and citric acids; that of grapes  from a mixture of malic and tartaric  acids; that of the mango from citric  acid and a very fugitive' essential oil;  that of tho tamarind from a mixture  of citric, malic and tartaric acids.  the revision   of the  racing;  SiiCpND DAY.'

They are, in  ;.v<.ry   union   in   which  they   have  t-ecuied a foothold, an organization  within   an   organization,    a   circle  -yithin   a circle, and vote ������s a unit  under   the  instruction of a recognized leader; and   when   they have  c. . project   in  view   that they know  t wy  could  never get pas.-ed  at  a  full or half representative mec ing,  1 ,iey  adopt obsiruction   tactics   in  . ihe1union  meeting-, until they tire  ort the conservative element of the  ��������� ir.f.n   of    families    who   desire   to  . ii/.--  '.'ho'nie   at   a . reasonable   hour,  until a -time an ives when they (who  :; I ways stop to.the last) find them-  s'-lvcs in a majority. Then they  spring tht-ir motions and carry  them in spite of thp feeble opp-isi-  tion that is left. They pursue the  same nefarious* and unscrupulous  tactics to capture all offices in the  union, and"especially that of recdrd-  ing sectetary," who is generally a-  man devoid of honor, who falsities  the minutes at one meeting and  garbles the readii'.g of them at the  next, and ibis is how so many disgraceful rules have 1 een introduced  into some of the unions of late, and  tactics adopted that bring discredit  on unions that shou'd stand before  the public like untorCeasai's  wife,'  beyond suspicion.  "',      ��������� i  'I'.sayto you business  men   and  , the  public  generally that you  are'  < t -* 1  under an.obliga' ion and owe a debt  to  the conservative and intelligent  real   tra de������?

And I -ay. to you,  genuine trades unionists, boui d to-  o-ether iir the bonds of biolherhoud,  actuated only' by  a desire for the  advancement, of the  whole human  ftmily,  whose  motto is  and   ever  t-liall   he,   . do. unto others  as you  -would  he done by,'   watch1' closely  arid    unceasingly   this  'perni-i us  eleriieni;   counteract    thtir    every  move, and so preserve unsullied the  spotless.banner of. trades'unionism  .pure  and'simple, which we men of  ;-th'e' buildiim ..trades.' have marched  I under for a" hundred year's; preserve  * public   respect,, public   confide cp���������  au'd. above all, our own self-respect.  Let   not the  mushroom unions  of  i  yesterday bring disgrace and discredit upon us or upon our banner,  for we are here to s ay, while they,  brought into existence through the  "forcing process of a socialistic hotbed will melt and disappear before  the first breath of adversity, like  yesterday's snowfall before a chi  nook wind, and they will'leave us  no hing as an inheritance but the  memory of the shame they bring  upon u->. In conclusion, I would  say that if there is any gentleman  in Spokane worthy of the name  who has embraced the tenets of  socialism, I would be pleased to  break a lance with him upon the  public platform, with only one condition attached, namely, his shield  mast bear the quarterings of a gentleman at least, and be a man of  public standing in the community.
