Victoria, June 11.���������Political situation is engrossing attention in  this city to-day. Speculation is  rife as to what action Governor will  take or whether Ottawa authorities  will permit him -.to remain in bis  position.

HJAUtA  WORTH  [Copyright, 1893, by the Author.]  CHAPTER XXIII.  , i Mr.  Falck often   blamed  himself for  having left Chica'sro in this precipitate  fashion without taking- leave of Hulda.  It occurred  to him that he might h_ve  ���������offered her  his  help  in case  she  were  ever to require it.   He managed at the  end  of a  yoa.r to  compose a  lelter  in  German to the Rev. Dr. Trump (having  Tin knowledge of English), in which he  beared him as a, favour to inform him  whether the Bruns were in comfort-able  circumstances,   and  in  case  they  were  in   need  to   ������3ra.w  on  him ,for  a stated  sum (si very generous one)' without .letting   them   know   whence   the   money  came.    But "to this letfgr he never received  a  reply.    Whe.ther   Dr.   Trump  was  ignorant  of  German  and  did   not  think   the   letter   of    sufficient    consequence  to  h'ave  if translated,  or whether  " Chicago',"  without indication  of  street   or  number,  was  an  insufficient  address,  was    a    problem    beyond  his  power of solution.    Rut having an  ineradicable   conviction   that   Olaf  Brun  was a1'-'miserable humbug whose worth-  lessness would bo sure to manifest itself  on  short acquaintance,  Falck was tin-  able  to set his  conscience at rest and  dismiss Hulda's  fate  as of no further,  concern to hii'. He communiicated none  of      his      feais      to      the      rest      of  the       family,      for      Hulda's      name  ' was    never    mentioned    now ��������� In    her  ola ,home,   nor  did  he  encourage  alr������.  Brinckman's   obvious   scheme   to  have  hhn   transfer  his  affections  to   Magda.  but on the plea of ill-health  he asked  and obtained a year's leave of absence",  which   he   determined    to   devote  to   a  second pilgrimage in search of his well-  bolovod.    For a.  modest,   virginal  man  like himself, with,his old-fashioned notions of right arid wrtng, it <-vas no easy  matter    to     transfer     his     affections.  Though  abstractedly    he   admitted   to  himself that it might be a good thing,  he lacked the flexibility,  the pliability,  to adapt himself to a new love.    Hulda  had   rilled,   and   filled   yet, his soul   so  completely that thpre was room for no  one   else.    And.   strange    to     say,     he  would have regarded it as a -spocios of  sacrilegs to hiatal any one, even though  il   were  her   sister,   amid   all   the  pre-  , ciniiti ��������� memories  which  belonged  to  her  and to-hcr alone.    His he-irt was liks a  hush������xl dcasih chamber, which is scrupulously kept in tho condition in which it  w,"p left by the 'dear departed.    Kulda  had drawn from his soul the finest'mu-  sic  which  it  was  capable   of  yielding,"  and now the instrument seemed crack-  ��������� ail, hopelessly untuned, and it was but  right that it should resign itself to si-  ]r"?ev.  i    J!e tried {sometimes to persuade hir.:-  .Pv.1l  that he had been ill-used,  that he  had a right to be angry, but though the  v argumt-jrn   was  irrefutable,   the   resentment,   fajiled   to  come.    She  had'ruined  ,   his life, no be sure, but, all things con-  -   sider- d, that seemed.a matter of minor  ennserjuence   compared    to  the  vastlv  moro important question, what had she.  managed to make of her  own?    It was  aoscluteJy    essential   -to   Falck's well-  being���������nay,   to   h.is   very   existence���������to  lmvo  this question settled,  and  it was.  therefore that he set out in April, 188���������,  .-for the United States.  He landed in New York the 1st day  ���������of May, and on the evening of the next  ���������day   he   found     himself     borne   along  Adams street, Chicago, by a torrent of  humanity which was pouring westward  -across   the   bridge.    Falck  was   by  no  .means   a  practical  traveller.     He felt  lost and helpless amid unfamiliar surroundings.   As he distrusted everybody  :in this bewildering land, he was afraid  to take a cab. or even to give up the  ���������check for his luggage.    After an hour's  ���������aimless tossing to and fro, he found a  shabby hotel,  with a reassuring Scandinavian name, and there he established himself and commissioned the land-  Jord to send  for his trunk.  It took him but- two days to get on  'the track of the Bruns.- who, during  the 15 months of their manrlage, had  ���������experienced some of the. vicissitudes of  fate. Falck. who received this piece  of information from Dr. Trump, reflected that his apprehensions, probably  were well founded. He felt, however,  no satisfaction in the thought that he,  had proved a .reliable prophet. Full  of compassion for Hulda, he started  in search of the address which the  clergyman had given him. It was fully an hour, before he extricated himself from the stream of human life  which pours through the great arteries  of the city, and filtered, so to speak,  into a sequestered, elm-shaded street,  where there were little well-tended garden plots before the houses. There was  an air. of j>eace r-nd quiet, unostentatious prosperity in this clean and well-  trimmed casis which made Falck look  about him in surprise, and then stare  dubiously at the card Dr. Trump had  given him. Surely this was not a place  where poverty would be likely to hide  its head. But there was the street, and  there was t'he number. There was no  possibility   ox   mistake.  Falck pulled the bell handle of a vine-  embowered cottage, and enquired of  the neat-looking maid who opened the  door whether Mrs. Brun was at home.  . " I -will see," she answered, in Norwegian, as she received his card.  " Won't you step  into the parlour ?"  Scarcely did he dare trust his eyes  when he entered the room indicated,  which was furnished with admirable  taste, and pervaded with an air. of domestic comfort. There was a fine piano  of the style known as baby grand, and  ieaves of music were scattered on chairs  as if they had been in recent use. There  was a large flower stand between the  windows with blooming roses and  fuchsias and calla lilies. A mahogany  table covered with a red and black cloth  stood in Norwegian fashion in front of  the sofa, and the white lace curtains  and the arrangement of the chairs recalled the parsonage at home. A broad  stream of sunlight poured in unobscur-  ed through the gauzy draperies. Light  and fragrance were prime essentials of  life to Hulda, as Falck well remembered. Many old aches which he fancied  the frost of time had benoimhed revived again, and began to throb painfully,  for  he   saw   everywhere   the   evidences  of the efficient hands creating order and  comtort by a sort of happy witchery  which he had never professed to understand. -        '  He was in the midst of these reflections when the door of the adjoining  room opened, and Hulda reached him  her hand with a simple and unembarrassed cordiality in striking contrast  with his own awkward confusion. She  pi;esented to his amazed eyes a vision  of pure and rich womanhood which  bore no traces of privation. She had  grown more beautiful if possible than in  the day of her maidenhood, and a  certain budding matronliness in her  form and features made her to him only more dazzlingly lovely. She carried  her, head with a fine freedom and ease  which was in itself an assurance to  Falck tihat she was happy, for misery  is always conscious; and would have  been doubly so in the presence of a  prosperous discarded suitor.  " I am very glad to see you, Mr.  Falck," she said, seating herself in an  easy' chair opposite to him. " I heard  from Magda that you were coming, and  I knew you,would have no difficulty in  finding us." '  " Excuse me���������but���������then you correspond with Magda ?" he stammered.  " Then I might have saved myself the  journey."  He was aware that this was not a  very gracious, thing to- say, but his  tongue had a trick of saying things for  which he often blushed when he came  to reflect upon them. His lack of social  ease made him particularly prone to  reflect on his demeanour and revise his  share of a conversation when it was too  late to make corrections.  " I supposed you were ill, and I was  very sorry to hear, it." Hulda rejoined,  heartily. ' '"Magda thought the climate  at home did not agree with you."  He was almost touched io' see that  s/he took no notice of his gaueherics,  but was only anxious lo banish Lis  constraint.  " Well, it may have been the climate,"  he'mubtered, sadly.  He had come aglow with benevolence,  hoping to relieve distress and read benedictions. He fancied tha4. no thought  of sweet revenge had entered into his  purpose, but for all that he was conscious of a bitter disappointment" at being defriuded of his charitable mission.  His self-respect would in a measure  have been restored, and in a beggarly  way he would have gotten even with  fate. But here fhe sat, confronted with  a new and unsuspected situation, to  which he was utterly uivable to adapt  himself.  " You are evidently much surprised to  ear that 1 am in correspondence with  Tnsjda." Hulda continued, in orrter to  help him over the rough places. " The  fact is, she "wrote mo first at father's  request in; care of the Consul, and father knows all about it. 1 have received a letter from Nils, too, so you see  I am well informed as to'the situation  at home."  " I see, I see," he answered, miserably  HI at ease, " but in order that I may  carry home some account of you perhaps you would .pardon me if I ask you  some, questions." .  ���������   .  " I shall- be harpy to answer you, Mr.  Falck,"'she,ejaculated, with a sweet,  ���������fluty laugh. '"In fact, I know-what .you  want to a.sk. and I shall spare you the  trouble of asking-."  ,  " Are you sure of that ?"  ,    " Purst,   you  want" to. know how  we  aro making our living."  " Perhaps."  " Well, we have been remarkably fortunate. Dr. Trump procured me an excellent position as soprano in a church  choir, and that led to no end of engagements. I sing in two churches, and I  have about as many pupils as I can  take in singing."  " But, but," Mr. Falck objected, " Dr.  Trump said that you had had vicissitudes."  " Did Dr. Trump say that ?" ,  There was just a touch of embarrassment in her manner and a slight heightening of the colour in her cheeks, as if  she resented the indiscretion of the doctor's remark.       >  " Please pardon me for a moment,"  she said, rising and walking out of the  room. She seemed to spread a rosy  glow of contentn-.ent about her, and the  temperature of the'room seemed to fall  a couple of degrees with her departure.  Falck sat pondering dismally for five or  ten minutes, and came to the conclusion that'ft'must have been pecuniary  embarrassment the clergyman had referred to, as they had notcriously commenced their wedded life with four  empity hands, only two of which were  of the least use for bread-winning. .  'When Hulda returned, she carried on  her arm a child of four or five months,  which crowed and fought with its chubby fists in the jolliest fashion.

The Englishman's Story of tlie Oratorical Snriirl.se That Was Sprung:  Upon Him at an American Banquet  at Which He Was a Guest.  "It had been pointed out to me more  than once," said the visiting Englishman,  "that one difference between Englishmen  and Americans was that Englishmen, as  a rule, aro good conversationalists and  Americans good speakers, but the fact  was' only fully impressed upon me at a  dinner I. attended some time ago. It was  a large public dinner of the $15 a plate  variety. There were all sets of big men  and famous after dinner speakers present. 'My seat was between a small man,  who was entirely ��������� occupied with < his  friends oh his right, and a large'fat man  on my left. As a neighbor.at dinner the  latter did not appeal to mo. He kept a  trifle too much of his face submerged in  his plate for strictly good form.  "But you know the expansive feeling  that a noble dinner with good music generates in one. We'd scarcely finished soup  when some trilling thing occurred that  suggested what seemed to' me such a  very clever bit of comment that I was  obliged to share it with some one. I turned to my right hand neighbor, but his  neighbor was claiming .all of his atttm- ,  tion. Then I turned to my- left. .The  large fat man was .finishing his ��������� broad  stick and gazing anxiously at the waiters  who were beginning to bring in the fish.  He didn't strike one as a promising sub-"  ject, but it was he or nothing, so, I leaned  over and let him have my clever. bit of  comment. He withdrew his eyes from the  incoming waiters long enough to give me  a vacant stare and mutter 'Aw���������yes,' and  plunged    immediately    into    the    turbot  which was set before him.        _.   " 'I don't scatter any more pearls before that,' I said to myself. But a little  later,- just as the entrees were coming in,  I Had another happy idea. This one was  a gem���������as superior to my' first as rubies  to rhiiiestones. I looked about me in despair. My right hand neighbor was trying to talk to a man four seats above  him. He was out of the question. I  triedvto go on with my dinner,' but it  wouldn't do. I felt like the poet's dark,  unfathomeel cave of ocean. I glanced toward my left. The fat man was oblivious  and moist with labor. '  " 'No matter,' I said, 'this would awaken the soul of a chimpanzee.' And watching my opportunity I gave him my delightful idea straight between the eyes.  He looked at me this time as though I  had awakened him from- a sound sleep.  'Aw o'g���������g���������' I dessay,' he mumbled uneasily and went bjack to his plate  like an arrow to its mark.   <-  "I tried' to pay strict attention to my  dinner from, then on, but I've never been  able to understand what was the matter  with me that night. It was just as they  were bringing .in the nesselrode pudding.  It wasn't an idea, it was an inspiration-  one' of those things that come to a- man  once in a.lifetime and make him famous  if he happens to have a parliament or a  mass meeting handy. There was' no  struggling with it. ���������'��������� It was a case of finding a prompt outlet or of standing on my  chair and shouting it to the crowd. I  turned and addressed my right hand  neighbor, but he was laughing so hard at  something that had been said that he  didn't even hear. Then I turned to my  left.    He had opened his waistcoat.  " 'Nevertheless.! I said, 'he is a human  being.' And the next moment I had leaned over and grasped his arm, and my inspiration was flashing out before him like  the seven Pleiades. You'd have thought  the beggar feared personal violence. All  he said was, 'Mm���������m���������yes, no doubt,' in  a worried tone and returned to his second  plate of pudding.  " 'W.here else on earth outside of this  blasted country,' I said to myself as soon  as I had stopped shuddering, 'would any  one run the risk of being put alongside  that kind of an animal at a respectable  public dinner?' It was perfectly plain to  me now. He had two stomachs instead  of a soul. I wondered how he had got in  and whether he'd - snore loud enough to  disturb the speakers when the cigars  were lighted.   -'���������;:/..,',/���������'..  "I wasn't myself again until after the  after,   dinner  speaking   was   well   under  way. But those speeches were not to be  resisted. They were the kind of after dinner speeches that aren't heard anywhere  else in the world���������eloquent, poetic, witty,  graceful.  "Finally, after half a dozen, the toast-  master rose with the bubbling demeanor  of a man who has something extra felicitous up his sleeve. He was going to call  upon a gentleman who needed no introduction before, such an audience and on  such an occasion, one- under the spell of  whose voice most of us had allowed our  cigars to go out on numerous occasions  before. It gave him profound pleasure to  introduce���������   ' ' ,   '  "Just then the boast at my left moved  his chair, and I missed the name, but  there was a roar from the tables. I turned in my seat. Great Jupiter! The fat  man was wiping his mouth and getting  up on his feet. 'They will throw the fool  out,'.I said. But they didn't. There was  another roar from the tables; then a  great stillness.  " 'Gentlemen,' said my revolting friend,  buttoning up his waistcoat askew. With  his first sentence he gathered the 300 of  us together and for ten minutes held us in  the hollow of his band. For ten minutes  we swung between laughter and- the  verge of tears,, between holding our  breaths at visions and vowing to live and  die better citizens. It was the most wonderful after dinner speech I ever heard,  or ever hope or want to������ hear. And in  that speech, only embellished and transformed out of all semblance to their original selves, were the three clever things  I had fired at hi*r> during the course of  the dinner."���������  DellB���������tful   Metaphors.  1 Wisconsin is still lamenting the death  of one of her ablest editors, a literary  genius of Irish birth, whose specialty;  was'the mixture of metaphors.

Few people escape the depressing, debilitating effects of spring, when the  blood is thin and watery and the whole  system exhausted by the artificial life  of winter.  The young lady whose case is described below had never been strong  since passing the critical period known  as the dawn of womanhood. She was  always overcome by tired, languid feelings and lacked the color, strength and  elasticity of movement which are natural to a girl of seventeen.  Her mother tells in the following  letter how her daughter was completely cured by the use of Dr. Ohase's  Nerve Food, the great restorative.  Mrs. E. McLaughlin, 95 Parliament  street, Toronto, states:���������'sMy daughter  was pale, weak, laDguid and very nervous, her appetite was poor and changeable, she could scarcely drag herself  about th.6 house and her nerves were  completely unstrung. She could not  sleep for more than half an hour at a  time without starting up and crying  out in excitement.  "As she was growing weaker and  weaker I became alarmed and got a box  of Dr. Chafe's Nerve Food. She used  this treatment for some weeks, and  from the first we noticed a decided improvement. Her appetite became better, she gained in weight, the color returned to her face and she gradually  became strong and-well. I cannot say  too much in favor of this wonderful  treatment since it has proven such a  blessing to my daughter."  In cases of thousands of pale, weak,  nervous girls and women Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food has demonstrated its unparalleled restorative powers. For men  who are worn out by overwork or the  ravages of disease this treatment is  equally efficient.  It is a blood builder and nerve vital-  izer of most unusual merit,which over-  pomes disease by strengthening and invigorating the whole system. As a  spring restorative it is unapproached  by any remedy known to man. 50  cents a box, at all dealers, or Edman-  son, Bates & Co., Toronto.  Dreams of t_e Maimed.  M. de Manaceine, the Russian psychologist, mentions the case of a persoD  born without arms or feet who always  dreamed that he had been mutilated.  Now, it should be borne in mind, he  says, that the majority of persons born  without arms or feet always dream  that they possess these extremities. It  is evident, he maintains, that this difference results, in the first instance,  from weak impressions hereditarily  transmitted, and in the secoud instance"  from the strength and precision of  these impressions. Persons whose  limbs have been amputated are subject  to curious delusions while asleep. They  never dream that they are -walking on  crutches; quite the contrary, tliey invariably dream that they are walking  with their feet, with this difference  only���������that as time passes their extremities appear to become shorter and  shorter.  M. de Manaceine mentions as a curious fact that this hallucination is very  pronounced when the wound has healed  without complications; while on the  other hand there is no hallucination  when the process of cicatrization has  been painful. Moreover, we find-the  reason of this difference in the greater  or lesser intensity pf the sensations experienced. Still, if the dreams of abnormally formed persons are characterized by certain peculiarities, they  are none the less subjected, as are other  dreams, to the mysterious conditions of  the human organism, aud, like other  dreams, their repercussion on the  wakeful state is identical.

' Statistical-tables compiled "from returns embracing^'13 years' show the  progress of the country in'these respects. The total number of "municipalities in the Province in*'1898 was  -1-9S organized townships, 100 towns,  136 villages, 13, cities and 38 counties. . -   '���������! ���������    ^       '  "During the     period  1S86-98 the total population  increased from 1,S_S,-  495. to 2,001 ;350, While .the aggregate  ���������   assessment rose' from    S694,3S0,G59  - to" $809,184,833.

The-   .township    population  ' was. 1,148,856   in.lSSG.     It' suffered  considerable diminution from  emigration to  the Northwest and the'   tendency tp migrate to the" large centres  and /the  increase  -,of  late  years     has  been  very   slight.     It  was   1,110,894  '   in 1S98.  -The cities had an aggregate  " .number   *. of  319,634"inhabitants     in  ' 1886 and 440,8S9 in 1S98. They added-ten thousand to their numbers in  ��������� - the latter    year,      as compared with  3 897, /while the township's showed .a  small  decrease:        In, the  towns  and  <, villages the ,   increase    in the 13-year  " period was froni 360,005-to 449,567.  ''/{' The assessed valuation of the townships amountedv to $452,097,645- 'in  1886" and the figures .for 1898,. were  $44S,810,060, having been; practically  - stationary for some years. ���������  City ,as-  - sessments*have increased from  $154,-  - 204,921   in  1SS6  to '$236,077,376  in  '"   1898," and  towns  and  villages'   from  '$88,078,093 to $124,297,397. ,  i The statistics concerning municipal  . debts include the year 3S97, later returns not- being available. , During  12 years the total municipal debenture debt has increased from $29,-  924,863 to $53,577,475. This augmentation, however, is solely confined'  ���������to urban municipalities. The aggregate of the, township debt has been  slightly decreased and county debts  have been reduced one-half, or from  $3,505,744 to $1,SOS, 107. City debts  on the contrary have doubled, the  aggregate volume     -being       $37,-  846,377 in'1898, as compared 'with  $18,469,893 in 1SS6. Town and village liabilities have grown in equal  proportion. It is worthy of notice,  however, that taking the aggregate  amount of all municipal debenture  debts the increase'has mainly been  in the earlier portion of the 12-year  period under consideration, as of late  years the increase has been much less  rapid.  This year a table is published giving-the financial conditions of the  leading American cities which is instructive for purposes of comparison.  It will surprise many, no doubt, to  observe that the debts of cities like  Chicago, Buffalo and Cleveland are  much smaller in proportion to their  population than those of Toronto and  some other Canadian cities, . One  factor in the case which, should ������������������not'  be overlooked is . that the waterworks, which are. a valuable, asset in  Canadian cities, are often in' private'  hands in the States or managed like  the parks by commissions, "so' . that  any liabilities incurred in connection  with them would not appear in a  statement of the general debt. But  even, after making ample deductions  bn.'this score it is a little startling  to find Canadian civic liabilities so  formidable as compared, with those  of  much   larger   communities.  I'lIOVINOIAI,  .V-AXK A<YI.U3T.  I.ficonimendatinii  nf rhanjes to Mffit the  Ino.reiisn in th������������ Xumb'-r of Applicants.  The annual report of Mr. R.Christie, Inspector of Prisons and Public  Charities, dealing with the insane  asylums of the Province, has just  been published, and contains several  recommendations for changes in the  system rendered necessary by the increased . number of applicants for  whom accommodation cannot be  found in existing institutions. . The  average number of inmates for 1.S99  ���������the year being reckoned to the end  of September���������was 4,441, as compared with 4,36S in 1898, and sta-v  tistics covering the last ten years"  show that the yearly average number has .increased by 1,274 during  that period.. The Inspector does not  regard this as  evidence that insanity     er for twelve hours.     While the Boers  subtle brain disease now receive  treatment -which formerly ' were not  considered to fall within the sphere  of the alienist. As increased accommodation must be obtained the Inspector strongly urges^ that a separate building be provided for this  class. ^Formerly none but the maniacal and violently excited ^were considered fit for asylum treatment^ but  as the result of investigations, both  of a scientific and practical character, a knowledge ,of the subtler forms  of brain diseases is being developed,  and "many of this afflicted class ' are  .receiving'.treatment as insane.' To  this "enlarged scope in iuderiner nf Insanity a considerable percentage ot  the increase must be attributed.  Premising that increased room  must now be had for the augmented  number of patients, the report  strongly recommends an ,extended  means of classification for the insane.  There are 77 criminal lunatics in the  Provincial' asylums who have been  found guilty of ofiences, but released  by the cour,ts as insane. There are  also over 400 patients .who have pronounced , homicidal tendencies* and  need special attention/and some 300  epileptics who could be much better  cared for if domiciled in- a separate  asylum. Provision ������has to some extent been made for the separation , of  tho criminal insane by setting apart  a" building at Hamilton, known as  East House, for the occupation of  such as have been found guilty < of  serious crimes. _ The homicidal insane "who - have not been charged  with crime are, however, equally,  dangerous, and should be placed under similar restrictions. It,is'urged  that a separate institution-for these  classes would relieve the- asylums  from much of the rigid_ and exacting  discipline and the arbitrary restraints  which now have to be'imposed and  that special structural arrangements,  conducive to security,, are, requisite  in dealing with the criminal aad violent class. Were the separation effected the cost of maintenance would  be lessened. The removal of the epileptics would also ; tend to lighten  considerably the pressure oil' asylum  accommodation. As a class they require different treatment from the ordinary lunatics, as many of them" are  not afflicted mentally to' such a degree as to warrant their' continued  residence among the' insane, and are  fit for useful employment, such as  could be supplied, if an institution  for their accommodation were established with  land attached. ���������  The-number of inmates at the close  of the year was. distributed among  the different institutions, as follows:  Toronto 716, London 996, Kingston  5S0, , Hamilton 1,021-, <Mimicq\601  and.* Brockvillc 513. There were 657  in the Orillia Asylum , for ^Idiots  which, together - with the insane  prisoners in the "penitentiary and jails  and the inmates - of the Hohiewood  Retreat, Guelph', .bring, .the total for  insane and idiotic persons cared for  in public "institutions to 5,210. The'  asylum per capita , rale of maintenance for each inmate was $125.05  per annum and ,the total expenditure  of the year was $629,974, as against  $621,737 for the year previous.  The revenue from the institutions  amounted to $74,364, as compared  with $72,042 for  1S9S-  It >nve������ tlie  Hoys.  The argument I have found in  Maine for prohibition was by an  editor of a paper in Portland, the.t  was for political reasons mildly opposed to it. I had a conversation  with him that ran something like  this: '  "Where, were   you   born?" '  'Tn a little - village 'about sixty  miles  from  Bangor."  "Do you remember the condition of  things in your village prior to prohibition?'',  '"Distinctly. There was a vast  amount' of drunkenness and conse-  cment disorder and poverty."  "What was the effect of prohibition?"  "It shut up all the rum shops, and  practically banished liquor from the  village. It becomes one of the most  quiet  and  prosperous   places   on     the  globe."  "How long did you live in the  village   after   prohibition?"  "Eleven years,, or until I. was twenty-one  years- of age."  "Then?"  "Then  I. went to  Bangor."  "Bo  you   drink . now?"  "I have never tasted a drop of liquor   in   my   life;"  "Why  ?"'  "Up,to the ace of twenty-one I  never saw it, and after that 1 did  not care to   take  on  the habit."  That is all there is in it. If the  boys of the country are not exposed  to tho infernal ism, the men are very  sure not to be. This man and his  schoolmates were saved from rum by  the fact that' they could not get it  until they were old enough to Know  better.

PROF. CHAKa.ES'E. TRIPLEU.  about men of the age.- In a business  way'much has'-beim done to make liquid air an accomplished. agent of  traffic: That is to sayi patents have  been applied for in every country of  civilized habits on the earth. In the  meantime Professor Tripler resides at  40 West Seventy-seventh street, New  York City, and ������ devotes large portions of his time to producing temperatures so low that the mind cannot comprehend them. This is what  be,says of his, discovery: "I am  happy to announce that after years  of .experiment, my process for manufacturing liquid air cheaply and in  large quantities is not only successful, but I have solved the problem of  harnessing this great -power to .machinery. My "engine for this purpose  works, and it requires only the perfection of a few mechanical details to  realize its enormous utility as a motor for all kinds of machinery���������for  railroad trains, steamships, factories; in short," whatsoever great force  is required, from propelling navies to  firing their guns and blowing up  cities and forts. Liquid air is from  20 to 100 times more powerful than  steam, according to the amount of  heat applied. Even with the heat of  the surrounding atmosphere, its expansive force is 20 times greater than  steam."  Professor Tripler does not claim to  be the inventor or discoverer of the  substance known as liquid air, but  he merely asserts that he is the first  to have found a method of manufacturing it cheaply and'in large'quantities so as to make it possible to  mark with it a revolution:in all fields  of industry in which is required a  mechanical motive power. I-Ie makes  the substance by compressing ordinary everyday atmosphere by a fifty-  horse power steam pump until it becomes red-hot. Then it is run  through cold water in a coil of pipe  and further pressure is. secured by  expansion caused by the heat, of the  surrounding atmosphere. Sometimes  he runs a ten-horse power engine  with������'his liquid air and makes liquid  air  with  liquid   air.  It is explained that the heat of the  atmosphere bears about the same relation to liquid air as the heat of the  fire does to water in generating  steam. Even if the substance is not  to become the motive power of the  future it seems destined to be used  largely as a curative agent. Eastern  hospitals are said to be using liquid  air almost daily, and Professor Tripler is called upon to furnish it to  them in considerable quantities. It  has been found to be effective in cases  of cancer and is a valuable substitute for cauterization. It will eat  out diseased flesh and leave no scar  such as marks the trail of the surgeon's knife. In the shipping of  fruits from the California coast liquid  air, says the professor, is bound to  become a valued agent. In-fact, its  preservative power is little short of.  marvelous  and  its  value all   depends  , upon the ability of Tripler to t make  good his statement of cheap manufacture.  Only a few ypars ago scientists  thought air was a permanent gas and  that it would never ..be anything but  gas. They tried compressing it under thousands of pounds of pressure  to the square inch and endeavored to  heat it. They had tried heating furnaces and' cooling it in depths of  chemical cold, but it always remained air' and gas. However, M. Raoul  Pictet, a French scientist, -ubout 1877,  submitted oxygen gas to great pressure, combining it with intense cold,  andV tlie result of this experiment  was a low drops of clear, bliSish liquid that boiled violently a few seconds and passed' away .-into , cold  'white mist. But Pictet has proved  conclusively that oxygen was, , not  really lasting gas, but merely vapor  of fire as steam is the vapor of ice.  In 1892 came Oljewski of Warsaw,  who demonstrated the possibilities of  liquefying nitrogen, , and about th������  same time Professor Dewar of England succeeded in., liquefying*-oxygen  and nitrogen and producing liquid air  in small quantities, then <.actuallly  freezing it into air ice. Three' thousand dollars .was the cost of the first  ounce that he made. To show Professor Tripler's wortderful progress it  may -be suggested that 'he has succeeded in t making fifty gallons per  day of liquid air at' a' cost of less  than 15 cents per gallon..  One of J the amusing incidents that  occurred during one of Mr. Tripler's  'late .lectures was-the production of a  hammer made "from a cardboard mold  filled with mercury and covered with  liquid air. After the box was removed the professor drove several  nails into wood with the liquid ' air  hammer. The hammer was passed  around, but at the end of fifteen minutes it suddenly melted, leaving '..the  mercury ^on the floor. - ' Desiring to'  show the great tensile strength of  frozen mercury he gave a man- in the  audience" a dipperful of liquid air,  (���������which was poured upon the mercury,  instantly freezing it and making it  capable of handling. ' In manufacturing the produce Professor Tripler  deals with a temperature which ��������� is  244 degrees below the freezing point,  and a teakettle full'of the liquid held  in "the air will boil furiously, the  vapor falling to the floor instead of  rising as ordinary" steam does. When  the teakettle appears to be about hot  enough to melt the hand can be inserted and can bring forth chunks of  ice. Then if the kettle is turned bottom side up it will. be' found to be  perfectly * dry, with a layer of ice  coating the bottom. , The steam exhaled from the kettle is''cold as an  iceberg. , While this uncanny, fluid  ���������would burn your hand l off" at-the  wrist as smoothly as a knife Avould  ��������� cut it. should you attempt' to bathe  in it you can dash the hand into it  Riid quickly vn'tlidraw it" without  even getting it moist.    '  Liquid air is not wet; it "is dry'and  cold, though in a liquid state. For  instance, a handkerchief dipped into  it will, when put into one's pocket,  retain the low temperature for a  whole day, and makes a very pleasant pocket piece for a hot day. A  piece of felt saturated with liquid air  will, if put into, the hat, keep the  head  cool for hours. ,:  Tripler is called professor by courtesy only, for 'he is an amateur in  the purest sense of the term. , Having  a comfortable fortune -at his disposal', and being of a scientific turn  of mind, he has devoted himself to  developing liquid air, and up to the  present time all his experiments have  been conducted in or about the elegant home he occupies in New York  City.  He is of a facetious turn of mind,  and one of the pranks he played at a  luncheon given by Elihu Thomson,  the electrician, at Boston, may give  a clue as to his character. The waiter brought oif-a steak done to a turn.������  When the waiter's back was turned,  Tripler lifted the steak- from the platter with his fork, dipped it into a  small pail of liquid air he had handy,  and then replacing it, began sniffing  at it contemptuously and jabbing at  it with a knife. Being frozen solid  it rung out like a cobblestone. The  waiter was summoned, and was  amazed tlia't he couldn't stick a fork  into it. .-Tripler-pretended -to be exasperated at such a tough steak being set before him, suddenly picked  it up aikl dashed it to the floor,  where it shattered into a thousand  bits, just" as would a glass tumbler.  The waiter didn't, wait to pick up  ���������-.he pieces; he ran, and'in the kitchen  hurriedly begged the cook to tell him  "whut wuz good to-cunjur with���������to  conjur evil speerts sose dey can't  hurt  yuh."

J. Perry and Simmie Simpson  are among tho personal friends and  advisers of Hon. Joseph Martin.  These gentlemen have a certain  amount of influence among the  liquor element, but how Alderman  Beckwith and J. G.

Martin's railway policy means  taxation. This taxation will fall  upon thef irme/s because the people who live in the cities have the  control of their own taxes for their  * own purposes, and there is no property in the province which can be  taxed to pay for Government lail-  ways except what is in the farming  districts and the small incorporated  tows.

The statements made by Mr.  Ralph Smith at the Nanaimo mee -  ing are well worthy the attention  of the public The premier has  been most plentifully abusing Mr.  Smith in his speeches, calling him  the paid servant of the New Vancouver Coal company and casting  other aspersions on his character.  Yet he was most anxious to secure  Mr. Smith as a member of his cabinet, and even the bribe was offered  of a discontinuance of the legal  proceedings against the coal company. Perhaps the premier was in  iii this but employing a device that  he knew would be effective in his  own case. Mr. Smith rejected the  overtures, and then Mr. Martin  could find nothing too mean to say  about him.

That sea of the dead  <     Is my soul, and the fcoolt  Is my heart, and the red  Rose the love you forsook  ��������� ���������Julian Hawthorne in Lippincott'*.  A DAY OF ROSES.  A scent of roses made Aylmer think '  of something > that was over   long  ago  and that he had almost forgotten.   The -  roses were everywhere  in the  drawing  room he had, just entered.    They stood  in jars on the mantelpiece.   Flat bowls  held them on tables, and singly in slender vases they were to be se'en here and  there among the china and the odds and  ends of silver and ' enamel, and delft  and marble that filled' the dainty room.  Audrey "had loved roses. oThere was  one day in  the, little cottage under the  beech   trees  where Aylmer  had  spent  many an hour that seemed of a sudden  passing happy now���������one day which he  and she had called the day of roses.  He  had only to shut  his eyes���������indeed, had  - not to  shut   them���������to  see  again  the  flower strewn  room.   It was Audrey's  birthday, and he had brought her roses.  They were in the hamper first in which  they  had been packed.    Ah, Audrey's  little cry of delight as she raised the lid  and, saw them lying softly among their  damp leaves!   Then they were on trays,  ' '   two big trays that yet' would not hold  them, and  they  overflowed  on  to the  table, where, with  their foliage, .they  lay, a litter, of crimson and  yellow and  green, over which, with caressing touch,  leaned Audrey, the sweetest  flower  of  all. He could see her gather up a handful and  bury her face amid   the petals  that, were scarcely more  delicate than  herself.   Then there was tbe seeking of  ���������   things  in which   to  put them.    Every  suitable vase and  jar and  pot  the cot-'  tage contained was  requisitioned, and  there were still roses.    He had, been reminded vaguely  of   the woman of, the  eons of the  prophets���������without  calling  her all that���������and the miraculous pot of  , oil, for, as with her: "It came to pass  when the vessels were full that she said  *   *   *   Bring me yet a vessel."   And  ��������� there was no vessel found.    Four roses  remainedo over.'' One of them   he must  ,wear.    He chose the smallest, an opening bud.   The other three Audrey, kissing, them  first, put into  the   girdle at  her waist. c"  That was the day of roses, and Ayl-  . mer,. back from his two years' travel,  had forgotten it till a chance scent recalled it and the idyl that had been an  incident among incidents in a somewhat  thoughtless life.  But he was dreaming, and here was  Diana. She came in with an apology  and a rustle of silk. She was grieved to  have kept him waiting. She put up her  . face to be kissed; the first time of his  dining with her, and not to be there to  receive him! But it was inexcusable-  inexcusable. She had had an afternoon  of delays���������just that; delays everywhere.  First the tiresome lawyer people, and  then the trustees, and at the last moment a young woman from Antoinette's  about her trousseau. What a business  marriage was, and the fact of having  been through it before did not ease matters at all!  Complicated them, Aylmer suggested.  Complicated them, she agreed.  "I'm giving you a lot of trouble, I'm  afraid," he said smiling.  There was to be no sentiment in this  marriage. Diana had "gold and green  forests." Aylmer had spent his gold,  ' and the potential cutting of certain timber at Aylmer's Keep had brought about  the engagement. Lady Aylmer had perhaps a hand in the,matter, when she  asked the comely widow of Fontenbrink  Gran ton of Broad street to the Keep to  meet her son.  "All that will have to go," she said  one day to Mrs. Gran ton, and waved  her hand toward a wood on the hill.  Mrs. Granton raised her eyebrows.  A day or two later, driving through  the wood in question, Mrs. Granton observed a couple of men with notebooks  and pencils who saluted the Aylmer  carriage as it passed, and she observed  Aylmer's face, too, as he returned their  salute with a wave of his whip.  Lady Aylmer caught���������perhaps sought  ���������her eye and sighed.  That evening Mrs. Granton was the  first to come down from dressing, and  she strolled out on to the terrace. The  sun, setting behind her, shone upon the  doomed woods. Gold steeped them. The  shorn hill would be an eyesore.  She heard a step on the gravel, and  saw Aylmer approaching from the  house.  "The prettiest view in England," she  crztid.  He came and stood beside her, and  the eyes of each were on the woods.  "I am told you are going to spoil it,"  she said then.  "For a//time."  "A lifetime."  Tbe lady's gaze ascended the hill to  the top, where the trees stood up against  the sky.  "It seems a pity," she said, and said  no more just then.  The gong sounded presently, and they  went in. You could see the shining hill  from the windows of the dining room.  Midway through dinner, as the evening  closed in, a servant went  to  draw the  curtains. Mrs. Granton faced the window.  "Oh," she said to Lady Aylmer,  "might he wait a little? It is all so  , beautiful from where I sit."  Lady Aylmer turned and looked, and  Aylmer looked too. In truth, the scene  was too fair to shut out.  "Leave the curtains as they are,  Charles."  "Very good, my lady."  So Mrs. Granton saw the woods to  the disappearing point of dusk.  But later the moon rose. .Aylmer and  she found .themselves upon the terrace  once more.  The night was warm.   Mrs.  Gr* _ton's eyes were on the woods.  Their  changed   aspect  in the  moonlight wa3  excuse itself for any comment.  "Must you?" she asked suddenly.  He looked for her meaning.  "I!" he said.  "II It is not I."  "Who then?   Ah, yes. I understand.  They are mortgaged."  Foreclosure was a word she associated with poor plays. Such things happened thenl She remembered the two  men with the businesslike air and the  notebooks.  Sho laid her arm on the stone ledge  of the balustrade.  "Thero must bea way out," she said.  "If I could find it."  An hour or two  later, when sho took  her candle from his hand, she said:  "Look for the way out."  She smiled, and he followed her with  his eyes as she mounted   the stairs, her  skirts    trailing   and; the   candle  held  high. ,She did not look back.at the turn,  in the staircase. Aylmer, in'the smoking  room, was ruminant.  It was impossible to mistake her.  Nor did he misunderstand. ���������- She said  "Yes" when he spoke the next day.  Lady   Aylmer  said, "Diana,  Diana,  dear woman, God bless you!"  "Perhaps he will," said Diana.  > Now,, in her drawing room, the'  woods saved and"his future mortgaged  instead, Aylmer took a rapid survey of  his life up to the point ''it had then  reached and decided that he had pursued  the only course open to him. Neither  did he in calmness repent the step he  had taken. Diana Granton had not her  money alone to recommend her. She  was of the world and admirably fitted  for the position he offered her. ' That  sho was comely has been said, and she  took a sensible view of the situation.  Ho was not in love with her, and she  was wise enough to conceal from him  the secret that her own heart had been  revealing to her gradually for some  time past.  At dinner that evening she looked at  him and knew that she loved him. He  looked at Diana and thought of forgotten Audrey.  It was the fault of the roses in the  drawing room.   ' *-���������  The.scent of them haunted him���������followed him home. Poor little Audrey!  What would she think? But near as he  had come to loving her, he had never  made love to her and had nothing to  reproach himself with, for which now  he was fervently thankful. Yet he wtaa  not quite happy as his hansom took him  to Clarges street. A memory of something that was wistful at times in Audrey's eyes stirred him. The thing was  absurd, inconceivable. Her mother,  gentle as sho was, was a woman of the  world and had known that he "meant"  nothing. Audrey was a child to caress  and pet. It was he who had suffered at  the parting. Her tears were the frank  tears of childhood and rolled down her  cheeks unconcealed.  His misgivings told him that _8 had  done well to go.  He thought of the restlessness that  had possessed him during the early days  of tiis travel. It had sent him from  place to place. He had written a letter  then that was never posted, and had re  frained himself until time and distance  allowed him to write calmly. Presently  the need to write at all ceased and he  knew himself cured.  But tonight Audrey haunted him. He  could be thankful that he had not made  a fool of himself. The girl was not of  his world, and he knew the folly of an  ill assorted marriage, but she had been  very dear to him.  flow fair she was! Her face insinuated itself persistently between him  and sleep. She must be grown up now  ���������yes, Audrey must be 19. , The curves  of her slender figure would be rounded  and many subtle changes mark the time  that had seen the crossing of the border line of womanhood, but she would  be the same Audrey that he had known  and had beOn so near to loving.  It was late before he slept. Then  Audrey came to him in dreams that  had no definite shape. He tried vainly  afterward to remember in what guise  and to what accompanying circumstances sho had appeared to him. He  only knew that she had been with  him, sleeping as waking, through the  night.  The air and the light of day, however," cleared his brain. He spent a  morning with Diana, and by the time  she was sitting opposite to him at lunch  he could view the situation calmly and  see that his happiness lay in the direction he was taking. Nor was he consciously selfish.  He parted with Diana and walked  homeward. It was a time of roses. The  roses in a flower shop caught his attention.   They filled the window.  He found himself in the shop. He  had been attracted by red roses, yet in  the end it was white roses he chose.  He believed that he made his choice by  hazard, though now he sometimes wonders.    It m&y   be  Audrey's nature influenced him.  He took out a card and paused.  What to say? His love? He hesitated  and wrote, "For auld lang syne." Then  he gave his directions as to the sending  and left the shop.  Three days later a letter reached  him.  He opened it carelessly, not recognizing the handwriting. His fingers tightened suddenly.upon the sheet.  "I put your roses on ,her heart,"  wrote her mother, "loose, as they came.  She would "have lovec them so."���������  Lady's Realm.  Tbe Opposite.

In using the instrument the levers  are. operated to separate the jaws.  By reason of this motion the plunger  wil, be drawn upward to permit the  liquid from the reservoir to flow into  the chamber. After placing the impression block carried by the lower  jaw aga,inst the outer side of the  animal's ear the levers are operated  to force tlie tubular pins into the ear,  thereby causing the plunger to inject  th������  liouid into  the  wound.

One of the most remarkable banquets  ever spread in Kansas, was given at  Wellington in 1874 by John Williamson  of Independence, Mo. The guests of  honor were teu men, who lived four days  ou the single tiny careass of a jack.rabbit. The banquet, although exceedingly  merry, had a grewsome association, with  three corpses swinging-from'' a cotton-  wood tree on the lonely banks of. State  creek. There is a long story connected  with it, which is told by a .Wichita correspondent of the Kansas City Times.  For, four or.five years the* Southern  Kansas State company had a monopoly  of the government's business between  Wichita and Fort Sill. In the spring of  1874 John -Williamson, on behalf of the  Southwest Missouri State company, made  n bid- of $11,000 for the contract, while  the Kansas company's bid was $17,000.  It has always been. alleged that the  friends of the Southwest Kansas company entered into a conspiracy to compel  the Southwest Missouri company to  throw up the contract. At any rat*e, the  moment the Southwest Missouri compnny  commenced business 35 head of their  horses were stolen from their station at  Turkey creek in what is now Oklahoma.  Mr. Williamson offered a reward of $400  for the capture of the thieves.  Ex-Mayor Albert M. Colson, who was  the first superintendent of public .instruction of Sumner county, was then a young  man. One'day Dr. Burkett of Caldwell  hailed Mr. Colson and said: "You -are a  young fellow that I like, aud I'll put you  oh to a scheme to get that $400 reward.  At, 10 o'clock tomorrow morningv the  thieves will pass Devore's ranch,- ana if  you have a posse there you can take them  in-"    ,  Colson organized a  posse .of ten men,  with Joe Thralls, now superintendent of  the Wellington waterworks, as'his-leading man.    When  the  men  reached, Devore's ranch, they found" that the' thieves  had passed there the previous day at 10  o'clock   and   had   taken   the   Ellsworth  trail.     The  men  had   no  provisions,  but  they expected to be able to kill a buffalo,  and .away they  went  after the  thieves.  After two days' fasting Colson killed a  rabbit,  and the ten  men  divided  it and  ate it fromtheir fists as they pursued tbe  thieves.    Two days more they traveled  without ���������being able to get even a rabbit  and were about starved when they sight:  ed a party in the Sand creek valley, in  what, is  now  Kingman   county.     There  were only two men in the opposite party,  and a- remarkable fight ensued that lasted half a day.   Over 200 shots were fired  and,not ,n man seriously  hurt.     Finally  the superior force raised a flag of truce,  and in,, the parley that followed-the remarkable discovery   was  made  that the  ���������attacked - were innocent buffalo hunters,  who thought the attacking party was a,  band of horse thieves.    The hunters then  entertained   the   posse   at ' supper,   and  those who tried so hard to kill each other  during the afternoon parted good friends.  The next day the posse found track of  the real  thieves,  and  the latter,   finding  that  they were closely   pursued,   spread  alarm   among  the   farmers   and -settlers  in Sedgwick county by saying they were  fleeing  from  a desperate  gang of horse  thieves.    The settlers believed them and  organized to meet and take in the alleged  gang.     When  the  pursuers  reached the  settlements   of   Sedgwick   county,   they  found    themselves    surrounded    by    the  farmers, and had it not been for the fact  that Colson was known among them he  and   his   friends   would    have   received  rough  treatment.     When   mutual   explanations  were  made,  the farmers joined  the posse and came upon the three robbers, w _osc leader was "Hurricane Bill."  Two of the robbers escaped;   the third'  was wounded and captured.    He made a  confession,    implicating   'Lawyer   ' Has-  brook.  Landlord Calkins of the City hotel. Bill Brooke. Dave Terril and Charlie  Smith, all of Caldwell.  Sheriff Davis of Wellington organized  a posse of 200 men, wentto Caldwell and  surrounded the town. , The above named  fhTe men were captured and taken to  Wellington. Terril and Calkins were released on habeas corpus, and Brooke,  Smith and Hasbrook were placed in jail  to await trial. That night the jail was  broken open, and the men were taken out  by a vigilance committee and hanged.  Astounding? Politeiieaa.

One was coming down Chestnut and the other along Second street.  Had they been ordinary truckmen,  each would have whipped up, and the  chances are that a collision would have  resulted. But thef.c two were.not ordinary truckmen. With Cbesterheldian  grace one waved his arm to the other,  inviting him to take'precedence. ' "You  first!" shouted the driver, whereupon a  messenger'boy who had'witnessed the  remarkable scene gasped and nearly  swallowed his cigarette stump.; "After  you," was the next contribution to this  remarkable dialogue. "Wouldn't that  jar you?" muttered a motorman, who  was standing' clanging his bell for ail  he was worth.  The two truckmen continued to motion for each other to go ahead. "I  insist!" shouted one. "Oh, no; I- insist!" shouted the other.-. Finally a policeman interfered. "Say, one o' yous.  ducks git a move on," he commanded.  "This ain't no pink tea.", The truckman coming down Chestnut street consented to cross the street, and traffic  was gradually resumed.���������Philadelphia"  Record. ,      ',  A Persistent Poet.

This weird island is shrouded in  fog 11 months out, of the 12. September  is the one fine month, and on an average  there are-but seven days of bright sunshine during this glimpse of summer.  The reason of this gloom is the meeting  of the warm flood of the 'Japan current  with the icy draft of the Arctic, which  ,swirls through Bering strait.  More than one place in the world is  limited to very occasional glimpses of  the sun. The fo^rs on the banks of Newfoundland are famous. They,are specially bad during the fishing season.  Iceland sometimes has a whole summer of thick fog.' This happens every  four or five years, when a number of  big .icebergs float over from Greenland  and ground on the northern coast of tho  island. On such occasions tho hay crop  in Iceland is a total failure, and so, owing to the chill of the waters, is the fishing.  A part of tbe foothills of Peru' is  .stocked in mist from May to October.  But here the fog is-kindly, for it takes  the place of rain. Above the height of  l._00 feet it is replaced by violent rain.  On some farms half, tlie area is irrigated by fog, the other by showers.  Loudon's fog's have been almost as  thick as they, are today for over two  centuries, but. used not to last so long.

Identically the Sanie With Islanders  Fifteen/Thousand Miles Apart.  Philosophic people who-belong to. the  Folklore society are fond of tracing legends and myths and customs all over  the world. Cinderella, the dear girl, is  found in one knows not how many peoples, speaking innumerable tongues and  believing an equal number of religions.  How did Cinderella become ubiquitous?  The transactions of the Folklore society  will perhaps offer a theory.  Now there has btfen unraveled a curious superstition common to Shetlanders  and Cingalese. How islanders so wide  apart���������some 15,000 miles���������managed to  adopt each other's views one does not  know," but here is the fact. The rice cultivators of Ceylon and the fishermen of  Shetland resemble each other in one or  two rather cremarkable points. They refrain from speaking of .the implements of  their calling by their names. They call  them something else, by names known  only to themselves. The reason is that if  the evil spirit were to. think that they  were speaking of vspades and rakes or of  nets and hooks he would be tempted to  damage them or even to appropriate  them.  The train of thought is the same with  both races. "There is an evil spirit always on the lookout for opportunities of  doing mischief. He even hears what we  say. If we let him understand that we  are talking about our implements and  tools, ' we shall direct his attention to  them and shall suggest to him a way of.  doing an injury. Therefore we will agree  to call a boat or a spade by some fancy  name known only to ourselves."  Another custom of the Shetlander not  possible to the rice grower is that if in  fishing his net catches something at the  bottom and a stone is brought up it is  not to be thrown back again for fear of  offending the evil spirit, who most certainly put it into the net. It is to be kept  in tlie boat until the net again catches.  Then it is to be dropped in the water,  with the words, "Take your own and  give me mine," whereupon the net is at  once released. Now, if the Cingalese  were to turn fisher, would he, following  the same line of thought, adopt a similar  custom ?���������Pittsburg Dispatch.  A PLEASANT MEDICINE.���������There  are some pills which have no other purpose evidently than toc beget painful internal disturbances in the patient, adding  -tb his troubles'-and perplexities*-rather  than diminishing them. * One might as  well swallow some corrosive 'material.

In   the   village- of   Chippewa,  and  along tbe Niagara frontier, there is,probably no better known or respected residents than' Mr. and Mrs. David Scha-  bel.    Both are' of  German descent and  display much of tbatold-fasnioned hospitality so often found in   the   fatherland.    To a correspondent   of   the  St.  Catherines Star, who recently called at  Mr. Schabel's home  Mrs.   Schabel  related the following story:���������"Years ago  my physician told me   I had heart disease.-   I have been troubled at intervals  with palpitation and severe pains, and  some times  my   heart   would almost  cease to Deat. , I would  become dizzy,  restless and frightened. At other times  I   slept   badly t and   had troublesome  dreams.    I lingered in this  state until  last   winter, when   exposure   to cold  affected my, kidneys   and completely  prostrated me. Tbe spring came,- when  my complaints were further aggravated  by stomach  trouble.    I   loathed food  and could   realize   that   I   was daily  growing weaker. My physician's v treatment would sometimes slightly benefit  me, then again I was worse than ever.  Finally, after all hope was apparently  gone and a large sum, of   money had  been  thrown away for medicines that  did ine no good, a friend   strongly advised me to ;try Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills, two boxes of which were brought  me at the beginning of the summer for  1899.    I used them and to my joy noticed improvement.    I continued -the  use of the pills faithfully, until I had  taken eight boxes.*    I am now able to  attend to all my housework,  feeling  entirely cured.     I have never had better health than lam now enjoying,and  since discontinuing the pills have had  no symptoms of the.old complaints."   I  feel that I am under   life-long obligations for   the  benefit I  have derived  from'Dr.   Williams'  Pink   Pills,   and  will continue, to   praise them when op-  portunity. offers."
