Diphtheria has claimed another
victim here. This time poor- Dick
Day, so well known and universally
liked, has succumbed to the dre d
disease. He had been complaining
for some days of not feeling well,
until last Thursday, when upon being examined by Dr Staples, he was
found to be suffering from diphtheria. He was removed to the
isolation hospital where he died
early Saturday morning, the diseases having had such a hold that
medical skill was useless. Tho
funeral took plac-.s on Sunday morning, and . was attended by/many
friends of the diseased.
The late severe storms have done
much damage. > Many shade trees
have been ruined and flower gardens injured. More serious than this
is the damage done to the vast,
quantities of cut hay lying in the
fields by reason of the rain, and
unless settled weather prevails from
now on, we fear the farmers in the
Valley will be put to great loss.
Last Monday a veritable tornado
swept the foothills south of this,
passing across to Hornby-Island,,
where it blew things every way,
hay in the fields suffering greatly.
A severe thunder storm broke towards Texada, and travelled north
west, gradually circling to the

will still find the house as comfortable as ever.
The" maples are sorry, sights this
season, all foliage being, shrivelled
up and prematurely brown.. As we
stated in'a former issue the evil is
due to a small white insect which
feeds on the ribs of the leaves on
ihe'under side, thus checking the
flow ofr sap and causing the death
of the- leaf above the injury. , So
serious is the destruction, that a
few years in succession like this
will kill the trees. Shade trees'in,

sprayed with'Bordeaux mixture or

will suffer, surely,-.

My  -chief had, no doubt, gone too far, but  ,  * that did not release me.   Before I'took  any   further  steps   I   must   Grst' coui-  ' plete my work.  There was not much wanting to finish  my   report on  the  Canadian  frontier, aud I did'it out of hand.    Then I  sent it in to the chief and prepared to  tackle the second set of papers, which  proved to be a scheme, marked "strictly confidential." for a.combined attack  upon New York by sea and land.  (Our  political   relations   at   that   particular  moment were greatly strained.    There  were rumors of grave disagreement, if  ���������aothing worse.)    But now I noticed the  word "speak." and I knew that 1 must  take verbal instructions before I set to  work.    I   must face my irascible chief  ���������again, and I had no great faucy for it.  ���������However,  it  must come sooner or lat-  ���������<er.  so  I   scribbled a  few   words on  a  sheet of foolscap and went in.

"You may have to work on the  ��������� scheme at your own diggings, for it  must go in by tbe end of the week. But  pray be most careful. Lock up the  pipers in your dispatch box at ujght  -and keep the thing entirely private."  "It is just possible that you may wish  ^o give tbe job to some dne else, general, as I shall hardly be here to complete it," 1 said, rather stiffly, and  with that I handed him the sheet of  -foolscap which contained my resigna-  ���������iion.     (  "Why, Wood, bang it all, you don't  jneaa this surely?" cried Sir Charles,  aghast. "Yon can't have, taken offense  at what I said this morning? I was a  trifle, put out, perhaps, but I never  meant it seriously. No, no; take this  beastly thing back or let me tear lt up.  This will never do. Forgive and forget, my boy. There's my hand on it. I  l)og your pardon and��������� I know you  ���������won't be late again."  I hastened to explain that my resignation   was  in   no  way   the  result  of  pique, and that 1 was on the point of  sending in my papers to retire from  the service altogether.  ".The simple fact is that I have come  into money, sir���������a good bit of money,'"  I explained.,  "How much, if it is a fair question?  I ask because you may have a good  enough income, a devilish fine income,  and yet it would be wiser-fnr-you to  stay here. The discipline of any,regular routine work is good for independ--  enr men.

"I believe I am a  millionaire  two or  three   time's   over.  Will   you   please   read,  that?"   and   I  handed him my lawyers' letter.  "Whew!". He .whistled several bars,  of a popular street melody (very much  out of tune), folded up the'letter, handed it back, .and then, looking me  straight in the' face, said, with slew,  kindly emphasis:' ���������  ��������� "By George. Wood. I pity you."  It was not..quite what I expected  from, this experienced, long headed  man' of the world, and he read my  disappointment in my' face. l  "Doesn't please you, eh?   Yon think  "yourself the most .fortunate chap alive j  But you're all wrong.    Vast riches are  a nuisance���������they are worse."    ,  He threw up both his hands and began to slowly, pace up and down the  room. _   ���������   , .  "A nuisance/ A ' tyranny indeed.  They will weigh you dowm and worry  .you perpetually. , Lord, Lord, the care  of all this money, the use of it, th���������  defense'of it! The whole world.

You'will soon have  a much poorer opinion of human nature, with their continual cry of, 'Give,  give.' But let's .talk about yourself.  What do you mean to do?"  "Honestly,' .Sir Charles, I hardly  know. I am still too much bewildered  and taken aback by what happened.  Will you. advise me. sir?" .  "It's not so easy, my lad.. It depends  so much upon yourself���������upon your  principles, your tastes and- predilec-,  tions. , Of course you will . ������irry, and  I've a shrewd notion which way, your  fancy lies.

I  have "no reason ta '  suppose that, if I did, she would ac-  - cept ,me." _     '        -  "Try   her."   said  the  general  dryly.  '-"You have three millions and'odd���������new  and   strangely   eloquent    reasons    for  convincing her of your worth."  "She   is   not  that  sort   at   all,    Sir  Charles."  "Then Eve wasn't her ancestor. I've  known her from a child. - She's pretty  enough, I'll admit, but. by the living  jingo. I'd rather you married her than i  I. By George, she'll be a handful! At  any rate, she will give you plenty to  do. Miss Frida will set the money  moving, and you too. So much the bet- '  ter. perhaps."     . ]  "Then  you  advise  me  to leave  the ���������  service, sir?"  "Of course you must leave." he roared with sudden fury. "What, a captain in the army with a hundred and  fifty thousand a year! It's o������it of the  question. But don't bo in too great a  hurry. Wood. Suppose this windfall  proves a fraud, where are you? You  can have, leave���������although I don't know,  how I can spare you with all this going on"���������  Leave  was  a weak  point with   Sir  Charles. '  "But," he went on. "if you must, you  must, but not for a day or two, please.  And. Wood, my dear chap., don't neglect this New-York business. I am relying so much on you for it. You've  been out there and know all the ropes."  So I stuck to the papers for. the rest  Don't believe all you hear ; you  are fortunate if you can'believe all  you sa.y. '    ���������  .

One of the picturesque English coronation ceremonies which have been  discontinued is that of lifting the king.  In the old days the monarch always  slept at the palace of Westminster on  the night before the coronation. The  regalia, 'which!- are still, technically  speaking, in the dean aud chapter of  Westminster, were brought by them to  Westminster hall in preparation, for  the ceremony. - These were arranged  on a long table, the crown, .the scepter,  the spurs, and so on. . The king when  he descended from the palace to Westminster/ hall was lifted by his nobles  on to. a marble, chair.  The lifting of the king into this chair  was a survival of tlie old Saxon custom  of carrying the king on his shield.   The  You cannot be   happy    while   you   have,  corns.

Then Aunt Samyra rapped, ou the  floor and called 'to me in excited tones  through the keyhole:  "Alicia Dean! Alicia Dean! Get up  and dress.' quick! There are burglars  up stairs!" (  Fortunately   I   was already  dressed,  haying  sat   up   later   than   usual   that'  night,   waiting for mv   roommate.

I got possession of the revolver immediately: not that I- expected to do  . any more goo'd with it than she could,  but I hoped to do'less harm.  " o'Sr.san Ellen." said I in.a stage whisper. "did1 you'see anything of the rob-  - hers as you'came in?"  But Susan Ellen seemed so paralyzed  with fear .that she was incapable of  answering and simply clung to tny left  arm like a, frightened child, shaking  from head to foot.  "Now, girls, follow me. and don't  speak ��������� a word!" commanded % Aunt  Samyra. ascending the stairway, .protected by her helmet of curl papers, as  it were, and with the caudle in one  hand aud the'poker.in the other.  We. folio wed at a safe distance; and  I confided to Susan Ellen on the way  - that the pistol shot 'seemed to have'  come from Uncle Ralph's room, "and 1  was'afraid the-robbers had, hurt him.  or he would  have come to our^ rescue  * In this time.  She opened her mouth to' answer,  but her teeth chattered so that she  could not.  We now saw that Aunt Samyra had  stepped in front of Uncle Ralph's door  and   was  making  ineffectual  attempts  ,   to rouse him.  By accident I had the key of my  room in my hand, having unconsciously taken it out after opening the door  to Aunt Samyrai This key I now aJp-  piied to UucIe^Kfilph's lock. The door  opened readily;''nil d Aunt Samyra stepped in. but sprang hack instantly with  a cry of horror, for Uncle Ralph lay  on the floor'under the window with a  pistol ^beside vhim.  It did not take me many minutes to  decide that he was dead with a ballet  through his heart.  After becoming convinced of this  fact all my nerve left me. While gazing vacantly about with da;;ed eyes,  vaguely conscious that Aunt Samyra  was sobbing and that the cook, who  had just come <on the scene, was uttering horrified ejaculations. I ' felt  some one pull my.sleeve. It was Susan Ellen.  "Take me away." she said. "It's  chilly up here."  "It is chilly." I answered, drawing  her arm through mine.  Then I noticed that a strong .gale  was sweeping t'.::-o;:^h the room and  that the upper sash of the .window was  vOUt.  -  ������������������������������������.���������;���������" ; /. ���������;��������� ,'    '   'v     "Look!" T said.-, "No wonder we are  cold!"     '���������       ��������� .  But she paid no attention.  After. I had put'Susan Ellen to bed  and managed to get her warm and  quiet with the assistance of smelling  salts and a glass of-wine I went back  up stairs.  ,  I had already decided in my own  mind that Uncle Ralph had been murdered by a burglar, but th" Irst glance  round the room seemed to ���������!!i-~>rove this  theory, for on the dress case lay  the watch and the purse of the murdered "man. Nor. after thorough  search, could I find even a pin missing.  Of, course we had a coroner's inquest,  and this developed the fact, which we  already knew, that "Ralph Morton had  met his death at the hands of a party  or parties unknown."  When the verdict had been rendered.  I returned to the scene of. the murder  and made another investigation. Under the window I discovered some bits  of broken glass. On examining the  window itself I not only found that  the upper sash was out. but that one  pane of glass in the lower was missing. As I failed to draw any conclusion from these circumstances I went  back to Susan Ellen and asked if she  supposed the murderer had carried off  the upper window sash.  - She burst out crying hysterically,  and for a long time I could get no answer out of her at all. But, lt transpired at last that when Aunt Samyra  had been apprised of Uncle Ralph's  unexpected visit the day before she  had sent Susan Ellen up stairs to pcet  his. room ready. Susan Ellen, thinking ,she had plenty of time before his  arrival to clean the windows, took, out  the   sashes���������They   were   old   fashioned  TV.! -Uir-le  ]"������������������:<!   ef    ���������'.

"V did  not think it would matter to leave out  one sash, and I meant to-clean it and  put it/in1 today."  *jg I .understood  now why  it was that  Cousin Susan . was so powerfully affected'by the death of a'great, uncle  whom she had never seen till yesterday. She thought if she' had not left  out that window sas^i the murderer  could not have(gained entrance.  Aunt Samyra employed the,finest detectives to clear up the mystery, but it  remained,a mys'tery still.  "Alicia." , said mv-- aunt about six  montns   arter   tne   murder,   "what   is  your theory <?h this subject?"  ..   "I   have none,"   I   answered,  "unless  It was a case of suicide."  "Impossible!" she ejaculated. '  "What sort of mood was he in when  ,Iie bade you good night7"   -  "Very bright and cheerful."  "How long was it after he left yon  before you retired?" '   ������ ������  "I hadn't retired-at all. .but was putting up my hair in curl papers when I  heard the pistol shot and went after  you." -  ��������� "Then you heard' the, report of the  pistol shortly after he bade you good  night?" '���������������    .  "I did."  "And you say he was ,in a bright,  cheerful frame of mind?"  "Yes; he went off with a laugh about  being in the top s?ory. saying he could  Bet a better view of the comet, which'  was  then  attracting   the  attention   of  every  one.  as  he  would   be  so  much  nearer to it."       " ,  At the end of this conversation I was  as much in tbe dark as I had been at  the beginning.  But one thing bad been borne in upon my mind very forcibly of late, and  that was the change in Susan Ellen.  Ever since that memorable night she  had been a different girl and seemed  only the shadow of her former self! .  I attributed this state of things to'a  morbid, oversensitive conscience which  ���������would,persist in attaching great blame  to herself for'having left out,that window sash. - One phas* of her character, ,  however. I was at a loss to account  'for. and that <was the sudden and unaccountable aversion she had taken to  Aunt Samyra's poor-old yellow eat.  Formerly. I remembered, she had  been the cat's greatest champion and  many a time *iad shared a meal with  pussy, but no*v she actually shivered  If the animal happened to brush  against her.  But it was many years .before 1 discovered the cause of that aversion.  Aunt Samyra was dead; pussy had  died aud been buried by me with many  tears tinder the cypress tree in' the  back yard: Susan Ellen had married  Mr. Wont worth, rhe young man who  had been her escort to the concert the  night of Uncle Ralph's death: the old  home had been broken up. and 1 was  drifting about the world in an aimless  way.  Susan Ellen had invited me to speud  a week with her. and as her husband  was away on business we had ample  opportunity for the exchange of long  confidences about aid times.  One night as we sat by the lire the  subject happened to turn on Aunt  Samyra's old yellow cat. I asked her  why it was That she took such a sudden and unaccountable aversion to that  poor animal.  "It is something I have often warned to tell you." she answered, "but  somehow always shrank from, doing so.  At first, I was afraid-, aud 'afterward I  just kept putting it off because I knew  I ought to have'told if at first.. Vou  remember the night Uncle Ralph was  killed?"  "I certainly do."  "Well, that evening I went to a concert with Mr. Wentworth. We got  home about 10:."0 and stood talking at  the front gate a few minutes, he meanwhile calling my attention to the comet. 1 felt guilty standing at the gate,  for Aunt Samyra had often toid me not  to do so. and involuntarily I glanced  toward The house, expecting to see her  poking her head out^ of the window,  looking  at   me.     Instead   two  curious  dismay. lie was looking ai ilie comet  now. to be sure, but if he were to  glance in my direction and then to tell  Aunt Samyra!        ������������������  "While I hesitated what to do pussy  began rubbing herself against The piece  of broom handle that held up the' window.

C;se   Glycerin.  Since so many people use pure glycerin for the skin, a word of caution seems  necessary.  .If' you apply a little glycerin to the  tip of the tongue, you will find that,  although it has a pleasant, sweet taste,  the first sensationthat is felt is one of  pain and burning. This is because glycerin has a strong affinity for water and  absorbs all moisture,from the surface  which it touches, thus drying up and  parching the nerves. '  Ignorant of this fact, nurses and  mothers sometimes apply pure glycerin  to the chafed skim of infants, doing  harm instead of good. The glycerin  ought.to have ..been���������������������������first mixed with an  equal bulk of.water. Elder flower water or rosewa'ter can be used instead of  ordinary water if preferred. This being done, it may be applied to the most  tender surfaces.  KITCHEN   HELPS.  If salt is thrown on- a stove when  the contents of a pot or pan boil over,,  it will prevent an offensive odor.

This will prevent 'the milk from  burning. , *   t ���������      '  ' For greasy dishes a little soda in the  water is a great help, and in washing  glass a bit of blue in, tlie water adds  much to its brilliancy. ���������    ,  Salt and   vinegar will be  found  the  best for scouring the   copper preserv-,  ing, kettle, and a lemon cut in halves,,  and   dipped   in   salt   will   remove   all  stains. . ���������  If in  eoveriag a kitchen table with  oilcloth a- layer of brown paper is'put  on   first,   it   will   prevent the  oilcloth  cracking and make it wear.three times ,  as long. / c '  Wooden bowls make the'best.'recep- .  tacles for ��������� washing line glassware-  which, requires careful handling.

',  ,After'peeling onions wash your knife  and  your  hands in  cold , water.    .Hot  water  sets  the odor of��������� the  onion  in-,  stead  of removing' it.    Then  rub  the  hands and knife with a piece of celery -  or cut lemon, or even a raw potato, to -  remove the odor. -    ' ''  Ribbon   Economy. "���������  Economical women have learned 'the  value of gasoline for cleaning ribbons,',  while others use .suds   made-of  soap,  bark chips.  They should, be rubbed b'e- ���������  ' tween   -the"   hands    until    thoroughly  clean,, then examined and, if too badly -  faded to use again, dyed" some darker  shade with  dye.-    White ribbons  will,  take delicate shades of blue, pink and -  lavender.     Light  colored  ribbons  are-  pretty dyed cardinal, red, but if- they  are too dark for that "save them until'  you  have  half a  pound or more and:  then   color "them   black  with   dye  for  .silk.   No matter what .color. thejT are' or  how spotted or streaked, they will dye  a   good   black..   Rinse   thoroughly   in  several,  warm,  soft  waters  until   the  last  rinsing, water is  left clear;  then- ���������-  smooth the ribbon between the, hands  and   wind   over a  wide piece-of  stiff-  cardboard.    When all has been.wound '.  around,- place it  between  soft  cloths  and   put  it  under  a   heavy   pressure.  When taken out,/It will be smooth and  look like-new.    Another way to manage them is.to bang them in the open-  air  until  about'halfudry; then rcover -  them   with  cheesecloth  or some'other r  thin  material and iron witli a moderately hot iron..     ���������    .     , ', _;  * .   <  Tlie   Children's   Hour. ,  Our   quiet   hours   with  our   children  should  first of all  be cheerful  hours.  Sydney Smith has said: "If you make  children  happy now,  you  make them  happy twenty years hence by the memory of it."   . I believe this to be quite  true. - We. should make the hours with  our children  full of joy, then  twenty  years from now we, too. can recall how  happy they wore, how we heard their  merry voices and watched them play,  and we can look with pride on our children, whom we loved and who went to,  Grownup Land.    Then, too.  tbe quiet  hours with our children should be loving hours.    I-Iow much the small touches   of   a   mother's   love   mean   to   the  child!    Even if it is only to whisper to  your son as he starts to school, "Remember, mother, is thinking about you  all day and expecting you to be a good  boy,"   bow   much   better 'the  effect of  such   a   farewell   than   to   hurry   him  away with some sharp and nervous rebuke���������Mothers' Journal.  ' Discontent   of  Women,  Women are more discontented than  men as a rule, says Ella Wheeler Wilcox in Success. A man's discontent is  more frequently constructive, a woman's destructive. I have known many  women who made a constant outcry  against the cares of housekeeping and  who as soon as they abandoned these  cares mourned for the lost comforts of  the home, women who craved travel  and hated its discomforts the moment  they set forth, women who craved the  mountains when at the seashore and  the seashore when ou the mountains.  What pitiful targets for their, own  boomerangs they will be in their old  age! For what is more dreadful than  old age which has not learned repose  or calm or the contentment of patience?  tlsefnl  "Women.  The poorest girls in tho world, it is  believed, are those who' are not taught  to work, and the sad part about it is  that there are thousands of them.  Rich  parents   have  petted  them,   and  they  have been taught to despise labor and  to depend upon others for a living and  are perfectly helpless.    The most forlorn women belong to this class.    It is  the  duty   of  parents  to  protect  their  daughters  from these  deplorable conditions.     Tbey   do  a   great   wrong  to  them if, they neglect it. .; Every daughter should  be taught to earn  her own  living.   The rich as well as the poor require this training.    The wheel of fortune   rolls   swiftly   around.     The   rich  are likely to become poor and the poor  become rich.   Skill added to labor is no  disadvantage: to the rich and  is indispensable to the poor.   Well to do parents  must  educate their daughters to  work.    There is no reform  more  imperative than this.  Doves* and Coronations.  At the ancient ceremonies of coronation of the French kings, after tho  anointing had been' performed, some  white doves we/e let loose i n tho  church. This was supposed to symbolize the power of the Holy Ghost in directing the king's actions. A similar  idea seems to have inspired all early  kings, for among the English. regalia  is the rod of equity or the scepter with  the dove. This is simply a golden rod  with a mound at the top, which supports a cross. On this cross is a dove,  fashioned of white enamel, with expanded wings. Some fine diamonds  ornament the rod in various places.  ,  4.' ACKNOWLEDGED'THE CORN  ,   A  Popular   Expression   Tlint   Had   Its  Origin In Congress.  ��������� The following is the origin of "1 ac-'  ��������� knowledge the corn," which is used in  the sense of admitting failure or, having   been   outwitted:   In - 1S2S .Andrew  .Stewart was in congress discussing the  principles of protection and said in the  course of bis remarks that Ohio. Kentucky   and   Indiana   sent   their   hay-  ; stacks, cornfields and fodder to  New  ! York and Philadelphia markets to sell.  !    Charles A. Wyckliffe jumped up and  : said: "Why, that is absurd, Mr. Speak-  j er.   I call the gentleman to order.   He  ; is stating an absurdity.   We never send  ; haystacks  or  cornfields to  New   York  : or Philadelphia."  /'Weill what do you ,send?" asked  \ Stewart.  :    "We     send."      replied     Wyckcliffe,  j "horses, cattle, hogs and mules."  j    "Well,"   continued    Stewart,    "what  ��������� : makes  your   horses,   cattle,   hogs  and  ; mules?   Vou feed $100 worth of hay to  j'a,horse; you get on  top of your hay-  ; stack  and' ride   off  to   market.    How  /about your cattle?  You make every one  carry SHO worth of hay or grass to an  eastern market-   You send a hog worth  $10 to market:   How much corn at 33  cents a bushel does it take to'fatten it?  Why.   thirty   bushels.,   Then   you   put  thirty bushels of corn into tho shape of  a hog and make it walk to an eastern  market."  Before Stewart could proceed further  Wyckliffe arose and said. "Mr. Speaker, 1 acknowledge the corn."'  nCT)\   \   A A ��������� A  i a  iv-*v  \ lr.ltJi     Kcol?      5 ^     SkvkA  "���������"V  1     >  i*  folrj   *������:  Air    Dry  \ L  |3>-  k  Is.  l>r.

KcKinley   and   His   Mother.  Dr. Rixey, who for some years was  the private physician in the McKiniey  household, used to tell that when the  late president's mother sat down for  the first'time to a White House dinner  what seemed to impress her most was  the prodigal supply of cream. She  commented on the abundance and then  added, "Well, William, at last 1 know  what they mean when they speak of  the cream of society."  The president laughed. "1 admit,"  said he, "that there seems to be an  extravagant array of cream ou the table, but you know, mother, we can afford to keep a cow now."  Dickens'   nnfoVtnna+e    Love.  Concerning Charles Dickens, it is well  known that though he married Catherine, one of George Hogarth's throe  daughters, in 1S3U. he was later devotedly attached to her sisrer Mary. Why  he did not marry Mary in the first  place is not certainly known, unless it  be that Mary, a young woman of giyat  loveliness of character, had successfully concealed her own affection 'for  Catherine's betrothed in order to save  her sister from disappointment*  Asihm.i.icnc.1 Lirinfrs instant Relief and Permanent  Cure in All Cases.'  sknt absolutely'frek on receipt of postal.  ���������   Write Your .Name and Address Plainly.  ������&<&&   'i^^%^ji &&$%%$&   6   System..  ysi  Our 'facilities for 'S orincr Perishable Articles are now  complete.

B  [Copyright,. 1902,^ by C. 3D. Lewis.]  EFORE sitting: down to bis evening paper and cigar Jdr. Bowser' went over to the butcher's  to select a steak for breakfast  , In looking about the shop his eye tell  upon   a   gallon   jug   tagged  with   the  butcher's name, and the man cf meat  explained: ���������   -  "I just got that jug from my brother-  in-law up the state today. lie went  into the manufacture of peach brandy  three  years ago.and   has  sent  me a  c      "ILL TASTE IT."  sample of his' oldest.    You are posted  on wines and such, and I wish you'd  tell'me what you think of it."  , ' "It must be ordinary stuff if made  , in this country," observed Mr. Bowser  '���������as he toyed with the cork.    "We have  the   peaches,   but   we   don't   seem   to  ���������'"   know how to use them.    I'll taste it,  however." ; ''  He lifted up the Jug and took a swallow and'then stood for a minute smacking his llps.<- That peach brandy was  not so ordinary as he had looked for.  1    "Is it pretty fair?" asked the butch-  ��������� er " ���������   i  "I should say," replied'Mr.. Bowser  as he took a long'swig and looked very  wise over it, ."thaMt was at least.XX  stuff.     Your  brother-in-law   has  done.  ��������� very well, very well indeed.    With a  few more .years' experience"���������  ,He took another drink; looked wiser  than before and continued:  -,.    "With a few more years' experience  lie can almost hope to compete with  the' French in the manufacture.   Ah���������  ��������� um!"  "I'd like to send him back a pretty  good report.", said the butcher.   "Would  you mind tasting again?"  ' "Not at all.   Ha!   I find the slicknesa  of it fully equal  to the best  French  brandy, though it may lack a trifle in  body.   You can tell your brother-ki-law  that the slickness is all right..  A gallon  of  it  would   slip   down   a   man's  .   throat while he was winking his eyes."  "Thanks, sir.   My brother-in-law will  be  highly  pleased.     Won't  you  taste  again and see if the body isn't up to  time?    Let it linger on your tongue a  little longer."  Mr/ Bowser lifted the jug for the  fourth time, and the gurgle in hi3  throat had the sound of a brook running away. When he finally choked  off, he sighed and wiped off his mouth  and said: '   '  "The body is all right. You cixn  write to your brother-in-law that this  is at least XXXX peach braidy.and  that no Frenchman has ever marie  better. He has only got to keep right  on to make himself famous. Ted him  that Mr. Bowser says so.'.'  "I will, sir, and thanks.to you again.  You will probably receive a jug of it  yourself next week."  When Mr. Bowser got his beefsteak  under his arm and started for, home,  ,he felt soft and oily and good na-  tured. A street car passed, and he  nodded and smiled at the motorman.  A grocer's boy came along with a  basket of potatoes, and he was patted  on the back and told to keep right on  if he wanted to be president of the  United States. Mr. Bowser entered by  the basement door and called the cook  "old girl" as he handed her the steak.  He was laughing as he went up to the  sitting room, and after a long look at  him Mrs. Bowser asked: .,  "Well, did you meet up with a funny  adventure while getting the meat?"  "I did. Ha! ha! ha!" he laughed.  "Say, what is that blamed old owl ot  a cat looking at?"  "At you probably. She hasn't.heard  you laugh like that for sis months.  What was the fun?"  "Why, I--ha! ha! ha! It was just  too rich for anything. I can't think of  it without almost choking. By George,  but I wish you had been there!"  "But what was it?" persisted Mrs.  Bowser.  "It was in Chicago ten years ago���������  ha! ha! ha! I was going along State  street just behind an old rooster when  all of a sudcten he���������ha! ha! ha! Say,  I can't tell it. It's too funny."  "What was the rooster doing on the  street?"  "He was���������ha! ha! ha!���������walking along.  Don't ask me to tell the rest. I can't  do it without choking."  Mr. Bowser rocked back and forth  and slapped his leg and grew purple in  theface, and the cat sat up and looked  at him. out of e3'es as big as saucers.  Kitten and cat, ^ she had been in the  Bowser family for years, and she had  never seen the' head of the family so  affected before. . Mrs: Bowser'was also  looking, and as a suspicion began to  grow in her heart she inquired:  "Did the butcher ask' you out to  drink when you bought the meat?"  "Course not���������ha! ha! ha! I wish you  could have seen that old rooster! No;  the butcher didn't ask'me out to drink.  He had a jug of peach brandy, and  wlien' he struck an icy spot that old  rooster's heels���������ha! ha! ha!"  . "And ' he treated- you to peach  brandy?" she asked.  '"I had to taste of it to tell him  whether it was XXXX or not. When  his heels flew up, that old rooster  spread his wings and clawed the air  and yelled out and sailed around and���������  ha! ha! ha!"  For a minute Mr. Bowser was in danger of a stroke of apoplexy. Then his  laughter ��������� died away in a long drawn  groan, and he looked at Mrs. Bowser  in a pitiful way and asked:  "Isn't it too bad that my Cousin Joe  is dead? Joe was a mighty good feller,  mighty good. I can't think of t him  without crying."  ��������� "Do you realize," she asked, knowing the truth at last���������"do you realize1  that you are intoxicated?"  "Mo 'toxicated!" he replied as he  straightened  up.     "Never,   sir���������never!  UNANOfNTED'ALTARS.  "Let it be," said h<\ "tlint tlie hounds shall win.

There was a procession down the  hall. It was composed of Connoisseur  "Bowser, his indignant wife and1 the  wondering cat, and their progress was  slow and eccentric. The procession  had difficulty in getting up stairs, as  Mrs. Bowser halted on every step to  weep, but it was finally accomplished,  and two minutes later he fell forward  upon his bed and whispered as he  closed his ej-es:  "Zhat brandy is XXXX, and you te31  your bruzzer-in-law Mr. Bowser says  so.

"There are many troubles which y.ou  cannot cure by the 'Bible and--the  hyiunbook," said Henry Ward Beec-iferj  "but which you can cure by a good  perspiration and a breath of fresh  air." .   . ' ' '  There is a .large paradox in the  philosophy of perspiration. The hotter  the healthy human body becomes the  more freely it perspires, and yet the  more freely it perspires the cooler It  grows. "~  Many persons try to keep cool by  avoiding all unnecessary exercise and  loucging in the shade. That is entirely  unphilosophical. Perspiration, instead  of being a symptom of suffering from  the heat, is a sign of relief therefrom.  And it may be accepted by all persons  In normal health that moderate exercise, sufficient to induce a liberal  moistening of the skin, is the best specific that can be prescribed for then-  daily use in hot weather. None suffer  more torture on a sultry day than those  who make it their special p.SCort to  avoid persnirinir.���������  A rich and distinguished relative is  by no means an unmixed blessing.  When I wrote my name in the matriculation book at the university, the rector  raised his eyebrows and said:  f "Ah! A relative of his excellency, I,  suppose."  "Yes.".'  -   "And yet you  wish  to take advantage of the free scholarships?" ������  ���������  "It is necessary, 'unfortunately���������for  the present at least."'  Thus I began under > unfavorable  auspices. I had all the' notoriety attaching to distinguished connection,  with none of its advantages, for I was  poor as a church mouse My comrades  pointed me out to their friends, saying:  "He's old Teleky's cousin, you know.  He'll have a pile when the old boy pegs  out."   , , " '  This sort of thing worried me. There  was one c6mpensation'.i.uowever. My  name and" presumptive wealth procured me the favor of young ladies and  their mammas, and for several seasons  I basked in the smiles of beauty.  ���������  My whole family, with all its branches���������there must have been a-"score .of  persons all told���������had. like myself, been  waiting for the future dead man's  shoes uutil' they had become almost  barefoot. My cousin in the beginning  had been nearly as poor as the rest  He owed his advancement and Iii?  wealth to his rare political abilities.  He had been a professional politician  all his life. Now he .was called a  statesman.  He gave evidence of his talent In  boyhood. The neighbors' boys-used to  rob his father's orchard. One day my  cousin armed himself vrlth a knife and  a big medicine bottle with a poisou  label. He went to the orchard, where,  in full view of some of the suspected  pilferers, he made sma.il incisions in a  number of the most tempting apples  and poured a few drops from the bottle into each incision. Some of the  boys asked him what he was doing  He .responded that whoever ate those  apples wouldn't care ..or apples thereafter. Thenceforth the apples remained undisturbed.  The bulk of his wealth came to him  through a lucky chance while lie was  private secretary to a certain high  functionary.  A rich banker applied to the official  for a concession, backing his appl'.ca-  ��������� tion with arguments of the most-  weighty and convincing character. -\  But the law. unfortunately. stinulntM  ed that the holder of the concession  mustj)tva Hungarian, which the bank-'  er was not.' ���������.  1 "It can be'arranged,"' said the dispenser of patronage. "You have a  daughter. I believe?"  "Yes." ..-:���������.'       ; .;  1 "Well, all,you have to do is to marry  her to a Hungarian as soon as possible. Then you can take the concession  in her name���������that is. in her husband's."  At that moment my cousin entered.  "Here is the man for you." said his  chief. "My secretary is a Hungarian  of good family and amenable to reason.  Teleky. allow me to present you to  your future father-in-law."  The banker looked at-the handsome  young Hungarian, and the bargain was  struck, the lady interposing no objection.  We never profited one.stiver by my  cousin's greatness. In late years indeed he had shown the greatest animosity toward the whole family. Some  of the affiliated branches who were  poorer and prouder than the Telekys  themselves murmured loudly, and It  was their complaints, the Telekys insisted, that had hardened the gre.at  man's heart. Gn the other hand, these  relatives insisted that It was all our  fault, and so a family dissension was  added to our other mortifications.  But in Hungary everything can be  converted into cash���������even expectations.  We had no legal claim on our cousin's  estate, but we found plenty of usurers  willing to take long chances.  ,  This was carried on to such an extent that the wit of the family said he  hoped "the old man" would never die.  as things were going on most comfortably as they, were, and when the  crash should come it would take.the  assets of a Roth sell ild to meet the outstanding liabilities.  The old man did die. however, while  I was still at tlie university.    Tie was  111 for a long time.'and the newspapers  were full of reports regarding him.  Thev said, anions other things.' that  the hull; of Ills Immense fortune wouui  go to the Budapest almshouse, but that  every relative who should appear, at  the funeral would receive :i respectable bequest. And. as a matter of, fact,  on the day after the old man's* death  I received a, formal invitation to the  funeral from his confidential-factotum,  who added a hint that my future financial welfare would depend largely upon my preseuce or absence.  Of course I. went. It was my -first  visit to,the capital, but I had no difii:  culty in finding my late cousin's town  residence, which was iii a large apartment house.  A hearse and carriage stood before  the door'wlien I arrived, and a great  crowd of idlers hah collected to see  what they could of the distinguished  man's funeral.' I saw none of my relatives among the few people who were  ientering, aud I blamed myself for bo-  ' lug the last to arrive.  Just then two ladies entered. They  were richly "dressed, but entirely ia  black, and they held handkerchiefs to  their eyes, from which tears were,  streaming. 1 followed them to an  apartnieut';on the second floor, wliere  we .found a goodly company of ladies  and gentlemen, many of whom seemed  as deeply affected as, the two ladies  who had just arrived.  There could be no doubt of the genuineness of their grief. Their eyes  were red and swollen, as if from prolonged weeping, aiid- their handkerchiefs were' used constantly.  Still I saw none of my numerous relatives. Evidently they-were all in the  inner' Irooru. .where the funeral no  doubt was already in progress, while  I was cooling my heels with the' outsiders'in the anteroom.  . A sad faced domestic, clad wholly In  black, stood at thec door leading to the  Inner room. I approached him and .endeavored to explain my connection  with the dead man. but he cut me  nhort at the first word. '    '  "Not yet." he said. "It- Is not yet  time.   You must' wait."  I waited. After a time one of my  companions rose and approached the  Inner door, which was opened obsequiously by the flunky. In , a little  while another did1 the same. .When  three or four"thus had passed behind  the mysterious door. 1 made .the attempt myself, but was waved back  Imperiously by the sad faced servant.  I continued to wait, repeating the attempt at intervals without success.  After I had waited some hours I discovered that each person before he left  his seat received an almost imperceptible sign of invitation from the servant.  I waited until nightfall, but no such  Invitation came to me. Then my wrath  rose, and I went to the door^again.  "It is not yet your turn, sir," said  the man of mystery.  Turn! What sort of funeral was my  distinguished cousin having. 1 wondered.  "See here, my niin," I said, "do you  know who I am?"  "I do not. sir. but it can make no" ���������  "I  am   Franz Teleky. your, deceased  master's.cousiu!" I thundered.  The man's face relaxed into a grin.  "Deceased   master?"   he said.     "Teleky?    Ho.   ho!     Ha.  ha!    Tbe Teleky  funeral. my> dear sir. was on the fioor  below.     It   has   been   over   for   hours  now.    This is the oculist's office!"  I went back to the university, curbing myself for a fool and bitterly envying my fortunate . relatives���������to say  nothing of the almshouse."  The next day's papers had a full account of'the funeral and the reading o,  the will. "Franz Teleky. a cousin .of  the deceased." they said, "was the only relative absent." "���������  The- will was found to agree with  the forecast of its contents, which had  been printer]Laud which had been given  to the papers (I learned afterwardi by  the old man's order. About a quarter  of the estate was divided equally  among the relatives who attended the  funeral, and the remainder went to the  almshouse.  But then the lawyer read a codicil  of-recent date and in. the handwriting  of the, deceased man. It ran as follows:  "As I am well acquainted with the  grasping character of my relatives' I  feel certain that not one of*them will  fail to attend my funeral if he thinks  he can make anything thereby. Nevertheless it is my whim to order that if  any one of said relatives shall absent  himself from said funeral said relative, in consideration of the independence of character manifested In such  action, shall become my residuary  legatee instead of the almshouse, and  he is hereby constituted such residuary  legatee, and my executors are hereby  directed to give, make over and deliver"  unto him. the said residuary legatee,  all the rest, remainder and residue of  my property that may be left after the  sums bequeathed to my relatives present   at  said  funeral   shall   have   been  paid."���������Translated   From   the   Hungarian For the,New York Press.

'  A well known manufacturer of musical   instruments   lh   Germany,, Max  Freyer,'  has introduced a  process for  making violins from clay;'   These fiddles are of tho ordinary .pattern, ,but  are cast in molds, so that each' instrument is an  exact  counterpart of its  fellow.   It is'said���������but it is somewhat  hard   to   believe^-that   the   porcelain  t body acts as a better resonator than  one of wood.and that the tone of the  instrument is therefore singularly pure  and  full.    The same inventor is also  making mandolins of china clay, and-it  seems that they are much appreciated  iu southern countries,7where ,this instrument is  regarded  more seriously,  than it is in Britain.   The obvious disadvantage of a musical instrument being made, of china clay is the brittle-  ness of that material, as well as its  weight, but both these drawbacks seem  to   have   been   forgotten.     For   some  time we have' heard rumors of most  excellent  violins   being  made of  aluminium, and this metal, from its extreme   lightness ., and   other   qualities, ~.  would seem to be admirably adapted"  to such a purpose.

This plan consists in* offering  prizes to tenants who behave themselves well and pay their rent promptly. All tenants who fulfill these conditions are allowed in summer to live  rent free for a fortnight, so that (if  they take a holiday they, need not pay  two rents. The plan has worked well  so far, and over GO per cent of thb tenants have claimed the prize.  Protecting: Pfcvr-EiiK-Inml-Deaclivs.  The protection of beaches along the  New England coast is-being successfully accomplished by the "groyne system." These "groynes" consist of a series of posts planted firmly in the sand,  with close planks extending from post  to post. The "groyne" is constructed  at right angles to the beach, and its  position prevents the waves acting ou  it injuriously. Sand is intercepted by  the planking, rapidly forming a new  beach   and   preventing   erosion.  He Hud   His Choice.

In his budget spei-ch ia 'the Do-  miuion Hous-e of Commons ��������� on  March ISth last, Sir Richard Cait-  wright',' minister of trade and commerce, ,dewlt' very fully 'wilh the  t: exodus from Canada "' wi-.ich he  s-iid ".bo.H been gieitly under-rated;  or not sufficiently appreciated by  the people of Canada.    The  people  1 Canada has lost and sent to the  United States were the flower of her  population, composed of young men  and women in the very prime of  th< ir youth?' In 1880. according  r to the census returns of the United  ��������� States, there were 717,000 Canadi-  ',   ans in thai-Country; in 1890, Q80,-  000;   in 1900, 1,181,000.    .Canada  3 i  lost from 1880 to 1900 not less'than  1 - 443.000 souls altogether ; and from  1890 to 190Q not Jess than 417,000.  0  In the  two" decades,  beginning in \  1880 and terminating'in   1900,  tbe  ,    total"loss was not less than 850,000  'souls. ."-Canada is a comparatively���������  new country,- wi'th boundless  territories almost unexplored; and room,  ,,for   a   hundred million   of, people.  ��������� ' .Sir    Richard    Cartwright   'rightly,  says this state of .things is a nation-.  - al disgrace,   an>icharges;it to  the  '. "gross   misgovernment   and   mismanagement   of   those   who   were  charged with the'govern men t/of the  country during that time."    We do  - not think that Sir Richard is right  in this contention. An almost similar state of thing's existed' largely  in the Northern States of the Union  previous to".the lebellion of the  Southern States. , Great wealth was  produced by, the raising- of tobacco,  wheat, etc.,, which  found a   ready  ��������� sale in European markets ;" but the  ��������� manufactures    were    limi.ed,   the  wheat and -flour and  sugar raised  were exchanged for articles manufactured  in Great Britain   and on  the  continent of  Europe.      There  was a continual exodus of American mechanics from   one   state  to  another, and even poor Canada was  in those days visited by numbers of  American  mechanics and laborers  in search of work. It was only after  the close of the war of the rebellion  that a change took place.    An immense revenue bad to he raised, and  high protective tariff was placed on  all .-foreign   imports,   which of late  years  has been  made aimost prohibitive.   From that time industries  Sprang up throughout  the  country  affording remunerative employ ment  to the mechanic and  laborer.    .Sir  R. Cartwright is'a free-trader, and  so  is   Willfrid   Laurier,  and   they  will   doubtless cling  to  their  free  trade principles as long as possible.  We certainly have a slight measure  of protection in Canada, thanks to  the policy inaugurated  by the government of the late Sir  John   Mac  donald,  and    which   the    Laurier  government has not dared to inter-  fer whh.    The protection   mu.-:i be  increased, if  we wish tu retain  the  Dear   Mrs   B ,  in reply to your inquiry as to which is the best tea to use, I  would say that in rnv opinion it rests between the Blue Ribbon and Monsoon  Packet Te.is. If you like rich, strong tea, then B.lue Ribbon is undoubtedly'the  ���������best but should your taste be fur a delicate and very flavory tea 1 would advise  you to call on C. 'J. JVlOORK for a packet of Monsoon., Personally, 1 drink Blue  Ribbon in the morning and Monsoon at 5 o'clock, but then,-you   know,   1   am   a  perfect crank about tea.

With a free trade'policy,  there was no employment for -its  citizens; gold mining is on 'the decline, and permanent industries hnd'  r,o be established in order to give  employment to an increasing population. It was with .regret tha.t  their very high tariff was made applicable to the Mother Country,  but the .end sought t(o be attained  certainly appears, to' justify the  means,  A GOLD-LINED GOOiiB.

Pedestrians  in  the  vicinity of  the chy  hall often have their attention attracted   to   a   sleek -brown   horse  hurrying up the   street  alone,   and  they   stop  to  see   what   happens.  Nothing  ever   happens" with   that  horse,   for   he   is not  a   runaway. ^  When  his owner", Dr L, F. Patten-  gill,   wants   him   the horse is sent  from   the  stable to the office; and  the animal has intelligence enough  to  travel  alone  in  the busy street.  .-He trots .up to-the office door, takt s  his stand beneath a", big elm tree at  the   curb,   and   there  he  patiently  awaits, the coming of his master.���������:.

Dandruff  is caused by a germ which saps the hairs  vitality. Vaseliue and oils are of no benefit  to the hair, aa dandruff germs thrive ia  them,' as well as in all grease. To cure dandruff, which is preceded by, and a sure indication of, falling hair, it is necessary that  the dandruff germ be eradicated. From one  to three bottles of' the' Peerless Hair Restorer will cure the worst chronic case.  VIOLIN   TUITION.  PROF C.H.
