It is to my interest to see a smeU  ter in your District, and what is to my interest, I think is to youis. By having a  smelter means the employment of hundreds of men, which will give the farmers a  market for their produce.

"Dnnrlfl Since my visit in canvassing in your District, I have travelled over the  XuUditlb most of your roads, and I find thar some of them are in a very good   con*  dition, and others I must say are almost impassaDle. That" is another thing which  affects my interests, and yours also. The better condition the roads are in, you will  be able to get your produce to market so much cheaper, and I will be able to sell  much more land and get the country settled up, which will be a benefit to you and  me.    So I will use every endeavor in my power to get good roads in your District.  I would recommend the District to be divided off into sections, and from each  section, a road commissioner should be appointed bv the settlers; and those commissioners to have the right to say, how the money should be expended on the roads, in  the different sections. This, of course can all be arranged by having a public meeting of the farmers.  The Trunk road between Wellington and Comox, will be completed this fall,  and the grant from the Government, which will be granted from year to year, will  be expended on the extension of the Trunk road to Campbell River; and to the head  of the Island If I have the honor to be your, representative I do not think  that you will ever regret it. As I have said before, your interests are my interests,  and we should work together for the interest of our District. It is for yrii, gentlemen,  to choose the best man to represent your interest; so now 1 shall leave the matter in  your hands.

On the rare occasions when his ���������  mother hart company he was careful to  let his work take him to some remote  .part of the farm.  But   on   his   twenty-first   birthday he  determined to assert his monhood beonm-  ginning to show its-possibilities, there  was a tendency to take up vast tracts of  country for tho breeding of sheep, or to  enter upon,, the ractiva work of alluvial  mining. Those who went out to open the  country risked their lives at first in flood  and drought, or at the hands of aborigines; but that stage , passed away, tho  social conditions solidified themselves,  and people '"settled down ' to .enjoy the  fruits of their prosperity. Taste began  to assert itself; the university, schools of  art, and public libraries'came into, being;  the desires and aspirations of leisure began to make themselves felt; and the increasing wants of the population aided in  creating employment'. '      ' ' '  Wages,- the* attractions of towns, the  facilities for - the education of children,  and numerous- other inducements,; soon  drew the people away from the country,  and caused them to settle in the larger  centres of population. Under normalcon-  ditions tho life lived in New South' Wales,"  surrounded by such circumstances, commands a high degree of comfort. The  average of personal expenditure , on food  and drink alone is higher than in any  other country in the world. More meac is  consumed, and twice- as much tea, except, perhaps, in Russia.   ,  The colonists \ spend more money on  tobacco per head than any other country  except the United States, Turkey, Holland and Brazil. t On clothing they spend  at the rate per individual of* 3J4d per  day, which is a fairly high average when  it is recollected that only 40 per cent, of  the population are to bo reckoned as adult  males. " ^  ��������� "In. 1895 the'total cost of living' for tho  .population of the colony amounted to  something * under , ������47,000,000 sterling.'  This sum included nob only coat of .food  aud clothing, but rent, furniture', miscellaneous household expenses, religion,  amusements, literature, medical and personal attendance, and so on. The average  expenditure per head was, therefore, ������37  14s Id per year, representing, of course,  not the cost of living for each adult male,  but-the outlay equally divided among all  units in tha cornmuuity.

In the United Kingdom, for example, where the conditions of life are so  prosperous as compared with other European countries, the average, according to  Mulhall, is as low as ������29 14s 9d. For  France the rate is about ������24, Germany  ������20, and the United States ������32.  While the Englishman has to work'127  days in the year to earn tho cost of the  food he consumes, tho Frenchman 133.  the Gorman 148, and the Italian. 153, the  worker in New South Wales has met that  portion of his responsibility after working  only 119 days. Anu this is not because he  eats less than the others. Quite the con-,  trary is the case. Tlie average Briton  makes it his boast that he can challenge  the average unit of auy other country in  respect of a generous food supply; but  the figures show that the brawn-and-  muscle fed in New South Wales absorb  nourishment sufficient to produce more  than one-third more working energy than  .the average dietary scale iu tho United  Kingdom. Thus, where the one consumes  278 pounds cf meat in tho year, the other  is content with 109 pounds; where the  Briton is content with 19 pounds of butter and cheese, his blood relation in New  South Wales expects and receives 24  pounds; 78 oz ol' te.i are contrasted with  143 oz.; 75 pounci3 of sugar with 91  pounds, while the consumption of grain  foods is about equal, standing at 378  pounds and 3S0 pounds respectively.  Even in the! Uniuod States, where the  conditions of life aro said .to be easy, the  meat consumption is only 15 pounds;  grain foods, 370 pounds: potatoes, 170  .pounds, as against. 205 pounds in New  South Wales; sugar, 53 pounds; and  butter and cheese, 20 pounds; while the  annual consumption of meat per head in  Franco is only 77 pounds; in Germany,  64 pounds; and in Italy, 2(5 pounds.  These figures convoy a fair approximate  idea of the material conditions under  which the people of New South Wales  live, as compared with those of other  countries. They eat and drink and spend  more, work less for the necessaries of existence, have a larger share of food luxuries, and in a general way get more out  of life than the masses of any other nation.

The only permanent cure "for. itching  piles yet discovered is Trask's Magnetic  Ointment, not only for itching piles, but  for every other form of piles, blind, bleeding or protruding. The first application  gives instant relief and the continued use  for a short time causes a permanent removal of the tumors or the .small para-  Bites which cause the intense itching and  discomfort of itching piles.  Many physicians for1 a long time supposed that the remarkable relief afforded'  by Trask's Magnetic Oinjbment- was because it was supposed to contain cocaine,  opium or similar drugs, but such is not  the case. A recent careful analysis of the  remedy showed it to be absolutely free"  from any cocaine, opium or in' fact auy  pdisouous, injurious drugs whatever.  Fur this reason Trask's Magnetic Ointment is probably the only pile cure extensively recommended by physicians, oe-  cause it is so safe, so prompt iu the relief  afforded as so far as known the only posi-  tive'eure for piles except a surgical,operation.  If suffering from any form of piles ask  your druggist for a 25c. or 40c. package of  Track's Magnetic Ointment and try it tonight.  FRANCIS KAHLE, 127 Bay street,  Toronto.  The Oyster's Memory.

A lady writing from an Ontario town  ���������ays: "A month ago I visited one of our  town stores and asked for three packages  of Diamond Dye Navy Blue for dyeing  all wool goods. The merchant informed  me that he was out of Navy Blue in the  Diamond Dyes, and talked me into buying a dye of another make, at the same  time guaranteeing them to do as good  work as 1 could get from the Diamond.  A lady friend was with me at the time  and heard the whole conversation. I took  the strange dyes home, used them according to directions, and was sadly disappointed with the results. The color was  anything but a Navy; in truth, my materials were spoiled. I at once took tho  goods to the merchant and told him his  dyes were frauds. He offered to give me  more of the same dyes or my money  back. I refused both offers, and after I  had threatened law proceedings he  thought it best to pay for the material  spoiled.

Carrying; Rack Tor Sheep, Pigs and Poultry���������A Swing-in**- Crib.  A rack' for conveying sheep, calves,  pigs or poultry to any desired < place ia  something which every farmer needs  more or less. The annexed out from the  New York Tribune shows what.a Penn-  sylvania farmer terms "a handy carry-  \ it  not an absolute necessity. Years ago it  was Delievec" that stable manure_was the  only rational food for plants. Even at  the present day there, are many who  still believe that fertilizers will "poison  the soil." Good farmers live and loam.  Two things --bey learn about stable manure are that there are some cases where  it does not pay to give money for it,  and that ifc always'pays to sdd potash  and phosphoric acid to the manure pile.  Tbe plan of "feeding the manure pile"  by using kainit and bone with the manure is jaaii as legitimate as is feeding  tbe animal on certain foods heoause  they have a high inanurial value.  JUST SO.  "   HANDY CONVEYING RACK.  trig raok," suitable for carrying one to  three sheep-of calves,,according to size.  It is easily and^ quickly made of any  kind ofssoftwood. His is of basswood, 2  feet wide, 4 feet,'long, .8 feet high; corner posts of hard wood, 2 by 2; bottom  and top, frame, boards  6 inches wide,  -three-quarters of an . inch thick, nailed  to posts. .There,are two floors or decks,'  and the roof is composed of material  half an inch' thick.- Slats 2% inches  wide: A strip,' 1 by 6 inches, 4 feot  lohg.-isnailed lengthwise in the center  flush* with' the inside of the.bottom  boards to .strengthen  the bottom floor.  , Both floors are set in loose, so they can  be removed if necessary.,. ���������   ,  The, two floors are convenient for di-  ''Tiding poultry to prevent their crowd-  Ing ortodivide turkeys from chickens.  Notice that the gate is divided in two,  and two sets'of hinges are_used. So inr  stead of having to open the whole gate  to take out poultry from the bottom  floor, only half need be opened. Two of  the side slats run out to five inches on  each end for handles. Two men can  take the rack full of poultryand set it  oh tbe scales to weigh it. Tbe rack can  be used to advantage in various ways  to suit the owner.  The ..authority already quoted'gives  also', an* illustrated' description of a  ���������winging cattle crib as follows':  It is triangular in shape and is hinged  ���������t 'the point at the bottom just on the  edge of  tbe feeding floor.  When swung  ' forward into the feeding floor, as shown,  It is in a most convenient position to  fill with hay or to place in it a grain  ration. It is then tipped back into the  ���������pace before the animal and is entirely  oat of the  feeding floor, and in a most  CONVENIENT SWINGING CRIB.  convenient position for the animal to  eat from. The bottom of , this crib is a  three'cornered piece of timber. This  gives rigidity and prevents there being  t, narrow space at the bottom, into  which an animal could not get his nose.  A Cheap Icehouse.  A contributor to The Prairie Parmer  ' gives this plan of an icehouse which he  has used for six years with the best remits : Take logs as long as you wish  your icehouse to be in width, flattening  them so that they will be one foot thick;  lay them on smooth dry ground four  feet apart. On this foundation place a  floor of two inch plank. Then take common 2 by 4 for studding, placing them  three feet apart. Toe nail them to the  Vplank below and spike on to the pi?, j  (2 by 4) above. Now line up on the inside of studding with common rough  lumber; put on a roof and leave the gable ends open for ventilation;  Your  icehouse  ia  now ready to fill.  Place a foot of dry  sawdust on top of  the floor, lea^'-.g a foot  of  space for  the sawdust ou  all sides, and  cut  the  ice to fill the rest of the space..   Keep the  lawdust space filled level with the ice,  as you go up tramping  it  down   solid  1 Place  a foot  of  sawdust  on   top' and  i you have finished   your job.   When the  ; weather gets warm, the sawdust should  '< be occasionally tramped down. In short,  there are five  principles  in  regard  to  keeping  ice   successfully:  First,   good  'drainage,    second,    good    ventilation;  ' third,   good  roof; fourth, a foot space  'of sawdust   (dry),   thoroughly packed,  and, fifth, good ice to start with.  The Hotbed.  There was a time when the majority  of gardeners thought that they could  not heat a hotbed without manure. The  heat arising from the fermenting of  horse manure seemed to them about the  only available supply for this purpose-  Now, as Rural New Yorker tells, steam  pipes are used with excellent success and  it is generally understood that manure is  fids  Is the Kind of Creamery Man That  Will Make the Money,     )    ,  Some day, some time, a man with  brains and an air of cleanliness about  .him will come along and locate in a  community where creameries are owned  and- operated by that class of farmers  who think that "anything is good  enough for a creamery," and this clean,  shrewd man will build a creamery that  will be so fine in its appointments from  cellar to garret that it will make all the  others look,like soap factories.  He will adopt the modern ideas of the  best posted men in the country. He will  spend dollars where farmers have spent  dimes, he will have tile floors, porcelain  walls, an office for the butter .maker, a  laboratory for the milk testing,* perfect  drainage* and ventilation. He will have  inviting walks of gravel or cement, macadam approaches to the creamery for the'  milk wagons, a, lawn that will cost a  few hundred dollars, cropped close and  clean by the boys in thecreamery. His  butter maker will have to know his  business from a practical and scientific  standpoint, and the man at the receiving can will have,the powers of a czar.  Bad milk will be sent back to the patron  with crape on the can.    . * ,  This creamery man will be called a  crank, but people will come hundreds  of' miles to see his creamery,'and its  reputation will" soon become' known  among the eastern merchants, who are  looking for a superlatively fine article,  and the strangest thing of all will be  that this man vwill prosper and makJ  money while.' his competitors stand  aghast at what they regard as wasteful  extravagance. ���������Creamery Journal.  Which to Make," Butter or Cheese.  While the receipts of fresh butter continue so large, and with*the burden of  held goods larger than for any previous  year, the outlook .for increased prices is  not good. We may expect a low average  for, the whole winter season. ��������� That we  must find an outlet for our goods of the  better class we believe is one of the  necessities for securing even fair prices  for the next six months. With these  conditions prevailing in the butter market the thoughts of many of our factory  men have turned to the question as to  whether it would not be more profitable  to divert a large portion of the milk to  the production of cheese.  The conditions in the cheese market  are exactly the opposite. Supplies of  cheese in storage and of fresh made  goods are light ��������� lighter than usual.  And the demand, both for home consumption and export trade, is active.  Prices have advanced, until at the present time the parity between the manufacturer of cheese and butter is entirely  in favor of cheese. With filled cheese  largely eliminated from the markets in  the south, the chances for continued  good prices for good oheese are much  greater, it would seem to ns, than for  higher prices for butter. Many of tbe  faotories are not situated, of course, so  as to make oheese, but many of them  are, and it would seem to be the part of  wisdom and good business for all factory men who are so situated as to make  either full cream oheese or part skims  to devote a large portion of their milk  to the production of both of these grades  of cheese.���������Elgin Dairy Report.  Dairy and Creamery.  It is a good plan to milk into a pail  Whose top has a brass_netting strainer  fitted into it, one that can be removed  at pleasure. This catches the coarsest of  the particles that will fall into milk in  spite of all precautions. But after this  preliminary straining the milk, should  again be strained, the second time  through three thioknesses of cheesecloth.  Three thicknesses of cheesecloth make  the best milk strainer. Do not use a  flannel cloth. Flannel is an animal fabric, and such is not nice to strain milk  through.  ' Twelve pounds cut or shredded corn  fodder, 3 pounds hay, 2 pounds straw,  8 pounds ground oats, 2 pounds wheat  bran and 3 pounds linseed meal are  recommended as a daily ration to he  fed at two meals for a dairy cow whose  owner has no silo.  What is called the overrun at a creamery is the quantity of commercial butter yielded over and above the quantity  of pure butter fat as shown by the Bab-  cock test. The overplus is caused by the  water, salt and other solids in the butter. The proper overrun is about 15 per  cent more than the butter fat. When a  creamery advertises an overrun much  above this, that creamery is cheating in  some way.  The value of theoattle in western America Is estimated at $3,000,000,000, or five  times that oi all the oattle in Australia.

W. A. DUNNETT.  From the Smith's Falls Record.  Throughout Canada, from the western  boundary of Ontario to the Atlantic Ocean,  there is no name more widely known In  temperance and evangelistic work than  that of the Rev. W. A. Dunnett. Mr.  Dunnett has been the Grand Vico-Council-  lor of Ontario and- Quebec in the Royal  Templars, and so popular is he among the  members of the order that in Montreal  there is a Royal Templars council named  "Dunnett Council" in his honcr. For  more than ten years Mr. Dunnett has  been going from place to place pursuing  his good work, sometimes assisting resident ministers, sometimes conducting a  series of gospel temperance meetings independently, but always laboring for the  good of his fellows. While in Smith's  Falls a few months ago In connection  with his work he dropped into the Record  office for a little visit with the editor.  During the conversation the Record ven:  tured to remark that his duties entailed  an enormous amount of hard work. To  this Mr. Dunnett assented, but added that  In his present physical condition he was  equal to any amount of hard work. But  it was not always so, he said, and then he  gave the writer the following little personal history, with permission to make it  public. He said that for the past thirteen  years he had been greatly troubled with a  pain in the region of his heart, from which  he was unable to get any relief.. At times  it was a dull, heavy pain, at others sharp  and severe. Oftentimes it rendered him  unfit for his engagements, and at all times  it made it difficult to move. His trouble  was always visible to the public and frequently when conducting service he would  give out and doctors had to be called in to  attend him. This occurred to him in the  Yonge street church, Toronto; the Baptist  ohurch, Woodstock, N.B.; the Methodist  church, Carlcton Place, Ont. On another  occasion, while preaching to an audience  of 2,500 people in the Franklin street Con-  Far More Important.  Life is too short to wait until some  great thing can be done.

The agents and correspondents of the  American Bible society employed last  year 882 men, each working on an  average of more than eight months.  It is stated that Rev. Dr. Hugh Johnson of Washington ia a lineal descendant  of John Tetzel, Luther's goad, who was  said to, have sold indulgences by authority of Rome.  It is quoted of Rev. Hugh Price  Hughes that he said the best definition  of a revival was^once given by an idiot,  who said it meant "a time when God  makes new Methodists and mends old  ones." ...

In all these cities and towns the  newspapers freely mentioned his affliction  at the time. Mr. Dunnett said he had  consulted many physicians, though he  said, to be entirely fair, he had never bees  any great length of time under treatment  by any one doctor because of his Itinerant  mode of life. In the early part'of the  summer of 1893, while in Brockville assisting the pastor of the Wall street Methodist church in evangelistic "services, he  was speaking of his - trouble, to a. friend  who urged him to try Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills, and next day presented him with 'ft  dozen boxes. "I took the pills." said Mr..  Dunnett,, "and I declare to you, I am a well  man to-day.. I used to worry a great deal  over the pain about my heart, but that Is  all done now, and I feel like a new man."  All this the reverend gentleman told in ft  simple conversational way, and when it  was suggested that he let it be known, he  rather demurred, because, as he put it, " I  am almost afraid to say I am cured, and  yet there is no man enjoying better health  to-day than I do."  At that time, at Mr. Duhnett's request,  his statement was only published locally,  but now writing under ^the date of Jan.  Slst, from Fitchburg, Mass., where ho has  been conducting a very successful series of  evangelistio meetings, he says:���������"I had  held back from writing in; regard to my >  health, not because, I had forgotten, bufY  because it seemed too good to be true that  the old time pain had gone. I cannot Bay  whether it will ever return, but I can cerv  tainly say it has not troubled me for  months, and I am in. better health than. 1  have been for years. I have gained in  flesh, hence in weight. I would prefer not  to say anything about my appetite; like  the poor, It is ever with me.

BEFORE I KNEW.  It was on a beautiful day in autumn  that I;first set eyes upon Dunsforth mansion. I alighted at the porto cochere somewhat weary and not a little curious about  my immediate future. But all my tired  feeling fled whon I gazed' at the scene bo-  fore me.  The owner of Dunsforth mansion was a  woman, a rich widow, and I had been en- -  -gaged as tutor to her two children. I had  not yet seen her/having been appointed  by ber solicitor, an elderly, kind faced  gentleman, who. told me that I would  surely be well suited with my surroundings and with* my. future employer;  My.father had died recently, and as his  "estate was in litigation, which was likely  to last for some timo, it was incumbont  upon me' to seek employment  almost im-  ,.mediately. My mother had enough to live  upon for the.present, but until we realized.  on my father's inheritance things looked  rather blue. " <  ' ��������� il mused oh our lot quite awhile and was  finally startled out of my roverie by voices  in the avenue. A. beautiful woman with  soft, fluffy hair,' a delicate, high bred face,  robed in mourning garb, came up toward  me from the avenue.. Sho chatted0 gayly  with a little boy, whom she was ' leading  by the handf I know at once that the lady  was Mrs. Dunsforth. Her lips and eyes as  1   she smiled   betrayed a genial nature, and  , there was a cordiality in the grasp of her  hand that made me at once at home at  Dunsforth mansion.  We  chatted  about* the weather  as we  rwalked toward tho house. She did this to  relieve me of my embarrassment, I knew.  - ".Charlie," she said before we reached  the hall door, "this is your new tutor. "  The little boy whom sho had been leading by the hand came forward. He was 6  years old, the very opposite of his mother,  with hair that was almost black, large  brown eyes and a little, fragile body. I,  stooped to greet the little man, and he  sprang forward and caught my hand.  ' "You are nice," he said, blissfully ig-  noraut of. my vivid blushes. ��������� "I like you  already."    ��������� >  My heart went out to the child. "I am  glad to hear you say that," I replied. "1  know we will bo great friends."  ,"My little Charlie is a very stanch  friend once he has made "up his mind to  like any one," said Charlio's beautiful  mother, with a proud look at her son.'.  " You are not at all like Professor Do-  little. He was always cross and he had a  big wart on  his nose," continued Charlie  ' innocently.  i     1 laughed aloud, caught.the little fellow  by the shoulders and drew him toward me  "What's your name, " he asked.  i "John Middlebrook," I said, "Mr. Mid-  dlebrook," correcting myself.  "Mr. Middlebrook, " .6aid the child mus-  ��������� lngly.    "Why, your name begins with.an  i M, just like my Aunt Marjorie's."  > "And what is your  Aunt   Marjorie's  i name?"  J' ' "Her name ia Miss  Mandorville, don't  iyou see," with a poke at my arm.  Wb had  reached  the drawing room by  > this time,' for the hall door was open, let-  | ting in the sweet, crisp autumn air.  ! Charlie scampered off and soon -returned  \ with his elder brother, who strongly resembled his mother He bad the same  light curly hair, calm blue eyes and expressive, kiBsable lips. He was a bit more  quiet than tbe youngster I had.first met,  'more obsorving and thoughtful.  "This  is  Joe," said   Charlie,  bringing  j him up to me; then turning to his brother:  "Joe, this is our new teacher.    His name  ;is. Mr. Middlebrook. I like him ever so  much, don't you?"  Joe shook5 my hand warmly, though he  i was not so effusive on short acquaintance  ' as his younger brother.  1 was soon  installed in my new home,  ! and thanked fato for having cast my lines  so pleasantly. The winter went by in a"  quiet, steady way. My tutorship of thoso  two splendid boys was a pleasant task,  and their mother was ever the samo cordial friend sho seemed on the first day of  our meeting.  {    Although Aunt Marjorie was frequently  [tho .themo  of conversation   between   the  ' children and their mother and seemed to  be held in the same affectionate regard by  ! both, 1 had notyetmct her. In my Jeisuro  moments I pursued my study of the law,  which had been so rudely interrupted by  my father's untimely death.  . One morning when 1 came down to the  breakfast room 1 found her standing at  one of tho windows���������Aunt Marjorie���������of  whom I had heard so much. - Mrs. Dunsforth introduced mo to her. "My dear sister, Miss Manderville," she said, "Mr.  Middlebrook,  the   boys'   tutor   and  good  . friend to us all."  Aunt  Marjorie  held  out  a  little, fair  .'hand with beautiful pink nails, dimples  that did not come from fat, but were just  made to intensify tho   beauty of that fair  'member.    From her  hand I glanced into  * her face, a shy, sweet face, with unspeak-  ,ably sad eyes' and a mouth which showed  ���������that it had twitched with pain.  She was fair, like her sister, and perhaps  five or six  years  younger.    In our  inter-  ) course during the  next few days I found  \ her a sedate, even tempered woman, who,  \ I knew, had met with some great sorrow  'in her young life.     But there came a time  i-wben 1 realized Aunt Marjorie was taking  fa deeper interest in me.    She came to the  | schoolroom now and  then  and  took part  In the  boys'lessons.     She conversed with  ' me at table and seemed delighted to know  that 1 was keeping up my law study. Her  sister, to whom   I had  mentioned my reverses of fortune since my father's dpath,,  had   evidently informed  her of  that fact,  and I read a kindly pity in the tender eyes  of Aunt Marjorie.  1 might as well say it���������I loved her,  loved her with a feeling akin to idolatry  I did not know whether my'love was reciprocated, and for that 1 did not care. I  was satisfied to dwell upon my feelings  for her My silent worship of her filled my  life with a romnnce that was irrepres6ibly  sweet.  At last it came as it was to be. I spoke  to her of my love, and she listened graciously It was on one of the first balmy  spring nights We stood by the open window and looked out upon tha starlit sky,  the dawn, dazzlingly beautiful in the brilliant moonlight with tho dew scintillating  on the gratis blades. ,  " Marjorie, I love you 1" I faltered. " Hear  me and then answer inc. "  Sho paused'a 'monici.r after my fervent  avowal and the nssunsiKi* ih.-.t the litigation which held my fathers <'f.i:iH.' in jeopardy was drawing to a close ai.e! i*h' I  would soon be able to take good can- i.f  so sweet a wife. As 1 looked down into  her face I thought I read' lovo for md in  her tranquil eyes.  "Wo love each other, John," she said  very quietly', but vory tenderly.  i'took her in my arms and kissed hor  passionately. She tolerated my caresses  for a .moment, then gently pushed me  aside.  "I love you," sho said. "I don't know  why I tell you this when I must'tell you  in the same breath that I can never be  your wife." *"  Her face grew white and wan. Dull  suffering was in her eyes, and a shudder  shook her delicate frame. ,1 felt the iciness  of the moment and clutched at-the window hanging for support. Then, taking  both her hands in mine, I, looked .steadfastly into her faco and asked: ''Marjorie,  what do you mean? Why can you not be  my wile?"  She "caught my arms and put them  around ber neck., "John," she whispered  huskily, "I am married!" ( |  A burning  kiss on' my mouth, and she ���������  was  gone:    I   was conscious only of  the  sudden emptiness of the room.    Wretched  and'heartbroken, I sought my own chain- |  ber, and there, 1 may as well say it, I cried  for the first timo since my father's death.  I was able now to account for many  things about Aunt Marjorie'which I had  not heretofore understood. She was frequently absent from her sister's house. She  was moody to sullenness at times- and  then again warm hearted and gay.  Months.went by, and the~wintor came  again. ��������� Beforo the othors Marjorie and.I  were as good friends as ever, but we wero  never alone together again Her eyes  seemed more melancholy than ever, and I  was thankful for my task of teaching Mrs.  Dunsforth's sons, and for the rest of the  time I buried myself in study  Spring came and with it another episode  in my life at Dunsforth mansion. This  time it was a rainy, chill spring day. The  weather had been capricious for a week,  anden the evening in'question 1 .was sitting alone by the fire in the library My  pupils had gone ,to bed, Mrs. Dunsforth  was away on a visit to neighbors, and Marjorie had been absent for several days  ' Suddenly the door opened, and ther* <���������:,-  tered with the gust of chill wind a gaunt  looking stranger. He walked straight up  to the fire and held out his thin, trembling  hands without speaking or looking around.  For several moments I was too perplexed  to speak. Was . this an apparition, or was  it a man of real flesh and blood, though  he seemed to have but little of either. ���������* He  was scantily attired; his hair was disheveled and quite black. The face was  ghostly white and the eyes dull and glassy.  There was an air of refinement about the  man, though, which caused me not to fear  him.  "You are cold," 1 said.  He turned and bent his eyes upon me.  "Who   said   I   was   cold?"   he   asked  abruptly.  "ldid."  . "You? Well, what of it? Who makes It  cold? It's nice enough for anybody who  has not been out in a long time. What  makes you look at me so? Do you think I  am crazy?"  I riveted my eyes upon him. "I didn't  say you were crazy. Sit down; let me.talk  to you." v  "1 thought so. You think I-am mad.  I have just broken out of a madhouse.  Are you going to send me back?"        ..  "You need not fear me. I havono cause  for sending you anywhere. Come, warm  yourself. You aro no more crazy than I  am."  A grateful glance came from the dull,  lusterle'ss eyes, and after a little I persuaded him to Tie down <*n the lounge. Soon  he fainted away from the exertion of tha  long tramp he nm*'t have had, for the  nearest insane asylum was 30 miles away.

In a week from the night of his coming  to Dunsforth mansion ho died.. Marjorie  was absent while our, strange guest was  sick. Sho returned on the evening beforo  we buried him.. I heard her come up to  her sister's room. Tho crazy man was lying in his shroud in the room below. After awhile the two sisters came down and  went directly to the death chamber. . I did  not see them again that night. I had  promised Mrs. Dunsforth that I would  keep the watch beside the corpse, and at  midnight I began my-vigil. Ko one was  in tho room when 1 came in, and no one  disturbed my lonely hours. Just as tha  night faded a way Kin to the gray dawn and  the purple clouds civ.pt up,tho horizon the  door was softly opem-d to admit Marjorie.  Her faco was swollen with weeping, and  her step was faltering as that of one who  had not slept for many nights. She  walked slowly to the bier and gazed dis-  tressedly at the face of the silent sleeper.  Then she camo over to me where I was  sitting near the grate, with its fast dying  embers.  "My husband, John-!" she sobbed, pointing at tho shrouded figure, gaunter and  whiter than any dead man I had ever seen.  k i  In a moment I understood it all. She bad  been ' married to a lunatic' This, then,  was the tragedy of her life that bade her  toll me that she could never be my wife.  Anguish at her spoiled, unhappy life filled  my soul I kissed her hand as I would  have kissed the hand of a saint She said  not a word t<o me beyond a tender "thank  you" for my sympathy I arose and left  her with tho dead ' I knew .that now the  obstacle to our union was removed; that  she would be mine in good time, for had  she not told me that she loved me! .  While I am writing this 6tory she is sitting beside me, a happy, blooming wife.

Old'parliamentary hands realize the  truth of tlie charge that the House of  Commons is, as a rule, so dull that the  weakest witticism is likely to nio-.e it to  unsubdued merriment.  It is nevertheless the fact that a number of members who cau scarcely get an  audience in the House itself are wont to  delight groups of their fellow legislators  in the smoking room or in the lobby, and  the stories,that float about St. Stephen's  prove that if in the mass our M.P.'s are  rather dull folk, individually they are not  devoid of a saving sense of humor.

Not merely a machine  to carry a surveyor from point to point,  but as a machine which performs in itself  the mechanical part of the surveyor's  work. The army of the neighboring republic is considering the advisability of  adopting this machine as an adjunct to  tactics. By means of an attachment the  exact topographical characteristics of a  road may be ascertained,' with no other  exertion on the part of the surveyor except a ride along the road in question.  The rider may travel as fast as he likes  .or as slow as he likes,- but' whon he has  finished his trip, every gradient, hill or  hollow will have been accurately marked  off on a long strip of paper,'which is part  of the attachment in question. On the  strip of paper tho exaot -height of the hills  und depth of tho,. hollows are indicated.  The mechanism is simple in tho extreme;  WOMEN AND WEAK     j  NERVES.    '.'.���������;-  Naturally the best stories are told at  the expense of fellow-members. A' slip  made by a wortbv Scot when addressing  an, audience in his own constituency  proved a cause of_endloss trouble to'the  unfortunate M.P.. who was what_is usually termed a self-educated man.  In the course of a fervid harangue the  hon. member brought down the House by  referring to "our kinsmen at tho 'Anti-  pods. V"   s': '  The cheers arid   laughter   disconcerted  him in no small degree, and still greater  was his annoyance when a friend gontly  explained.to him after the meeting tnat  "Ancipods"'was not the usual pronunciation of the word. . For years after this incident the M.P. brought in to every  speech���������whether.it was at the opening of  a flower show or an 'attack on. his political "opponents���������a' reference irf some  shape or other to "our kinsmen at the  An-tip-o-des';���������pronouncing the word in  a slow and deliberate manner in order to  demonstrate, to the world that if he had  once made a mistake it must not be attributed to want of knowledge.       < P  ,v Another legislator created no small  amusement during the dispute over the  German Hinterland in Africa by anxiously enquiring: "What sorb of people are-  these Hiuterlanders?*' adding pathetically,  "I can't find anything about them in the  library."  The election anecdotes which come to  the fore when a new Parliament assembles are often humorous. A Home' Rule  candidate was engaged in canvassing,  when he visited a workinginan's house,  in the principal room of which a pictorial  represenstation of the Pope faced an illustration of King William, of pious and  immortal memory, in the act of crossing  the Boy no.  The worthy man stared from one to tho  other in amazement, and seeing his surprise, the voter's wife explained: "Shure,  my husband's an Orangeman and I'm a  Catholic."  *   "How do you get on   together?" asked  the astonished politician.  "Verv well, indade " replied the lady,  "barring the 12th of July, when my husband goes out with the Orange procession  and comes homo dhrunk'.'  "Well?".  "Well, he ajways takes the Pope down  and jumps on him, and then goes straight  to bed. The next morning I get up early,  take down King William and pawn him,  and buy a new Pope' with the money.  Then I give the old. man the ticket to get  King William out." !   \ ^  There are some Parliamentary stories  which are probably hot known to those  principally concerned. '��������� For instance, there  was once a meeting-of. delegates to select  a party ���������candidate for a safe county seat..  Two gentlemen addressed tlie meeting, a  ballot was takeu, and the successful candidate was selected by a majority of one.  After the dolegates had dispersed the  horrified secretary of the association  awoke to the fact that two riiore votes  had been recorded than thoro had been  delegates present.  It was too late to do anything, but  some time later, when the candid-ito had  become an M.P. ono of his supporters  declared, in a   burst   of   confidence, " Wo  didn't want a beggar like , so  1 just  put three beans in the ballot box." The  M.P. had gained an immoral victory  without knowinsr it.  AUTOMATIC SURVEYING BICYCLE IN OPERA-  .    " TION.  it can be attached to any .wheel, or to any  other vehicle for the1 matter of that.  .  The importance -of 'the invention in  military practice can ' be .easily appreciated. Hereafter,a general contemplating  a inarch ban .order his chief engineer to  find out the exact topography of a road  over which the army, is ..to pass.

Or while the army is on  the march the engineer' can fide ahead  and leave his records at various stations  along.the road, his general thus being  able to have" placed before him, en route,  the exact description of the road ahead of  him: ''".'''���������       ���������."  Under orders from Gen. Gobin, 3rd  Brigade Pennsylvania Militia, a survey  of the roads around Haz'elton, Pa., connecting all the camps and the strategic  poiuts, was recently made. A method of  rapid road sketching. was adopted, and  49.32 miles were surveyed by means of a  bicycle equipped with a cyclometer and a  compass. It required 19 hours to do this  alone, and the distances and directions  were then drawn out on paper. The elevations were all derived from barometric  levels. This work occupied a great many  hours, and yet the survey was so quickly  made as to establish a new record for  rapid work. With the new invention, the  entire work could have been done in the  time it -would have taken a rapid bicyclist to cover the distance on his wheel.  It is also proposed that this invention  be applied to mapmaking. The value of  road maps would be considerably enhanced if all the grades could be shown  as well as the distances. Bicyclists as  well as wagon drivers would value highly  a map of this character, inasmuch as it  would tell them what work them or their  horses would have to do.  The device is the invention of John  Riddell, the mechanical expert of Schenectady, N.Y. It is simple enough. It consists primarily of two parts, a cylinder  revolving mechanism to carry the strip of  paper on which the record is made and a  device to make the record. The cylinder  revolving mechanism is a slender, horizontal shaft. The cylinder is turned by  means of a belt attached to the crank  axle of the bicycle. As'the cylinder turns  the strip of paper is unrolled from a spool.  The marker, hanging by means of a pivot  and' controlled by a complementary  mechanism, adjusts itself to the position  of the bicycle. When the bicycle runs  down a hill the marker moves toward the  lower edge of the paper strip; when the  bicycle mounts* a hill, the pointer travels  toward the upper side of the paper. Naturally the movements of the paper are in  proportion to the size of the prominence  or declivity along which the bicyclist ifl  moving. It is, so to speak, the antithesis  of the various picture onlarging apparatus  or paragraphs. The paper on which the  record is made Is marked off in parallel  horizontal lines.    The scale is   gauged  so  Largest Clock  in tlve World.  The largest clock in the   world is that  In the Westminster clock tower.    It  was  set up on May 30, 1859.  How to Unsure Sleep.  The sleeping room, should be airy and  cool, never for adult persons reaching a  higher temperature than 60 degrees.though  young children need greater warmth. The  head should never be un^er the sheets, but  exposed and cool. The feet should be kept  warm by a little extra clothing at the foot.  With a heavy sleeper there should , be no  thick curtains, but with a light sleeper  curtains, are essential, as sunlight plays  upon the optic nerve and rouses that attention which it is the one object of the  sleeper to keep in suspended animation.  The bed should never be between the fireplace and the door, as it catches the drafts  and it is more dangerous and more easy to  contract a chill in bed than in the day  time, the specially chilly period being  about 3 a.m.  RECORD OF RAPID   BICYCLE   STTRVEY���������4,000  YARDS ALONG   SECOND   STREET,  SCHENECTADY, N. Y.  that every foot marked off on the paper  represents 72 feet of road. The vertical  scale is 400 to 1, so if a hill shown on the  paper strip is one inch high, the real hill,  of which the marking is a miniature picture,'is 400 inches high. It is thus very  a-isy to calculate the distance and height  of every grade   passed over.  One of the illustrations shows a record  of 4,000 yards along Second street in  Schenectady, N.Y. This was made without any trouble to the rider, who passed  over die route indicated at considerable  speed. It exactly agrees with the records  formerly made by surveying.

The doctors allowed that  there were tumors growing on it, and they  blistered my side in aa effort to give me  relief. I was at that time earning my  living as a tailoi>ess, but for five years,  between the pain ia my side and tae  blisters I was. in constant misery, and  work was a drag to me, with no prospect  ef relief; fortunately for me, however, a  fmend advised me to take Dr. Ayer's 9ar-  saparilla, and finally persuaddti me to take  a regular course of it.

Dr. , Tal-  Mage chose as his text this morning the  Words of Psalms xxiii,, 1, "The Lord is  ���������ny shopherd," and therefrom he preached , ing this world was rough  ������, most reviviirg sermon.   He said:  What .with post and rail fences and our  pride in Southdown, Astrakhan ' and  *, Flemish 'varieties of sheep,'there is no  Use now of the old time shepherd. Such *  ' * one had abundance of opportunity of  becoming a poet, boing put of doors 13  <' hours'the day, and'ofttimeswaking up in  the night on the hills. If the stars or the  torrents or the sun or the flowers had"  , amy thing to say, he was very, apt to hear  It. The Ettrick Shepherd -of Scotland,  who aftorward'took hisrseat in the brilliant circle rof Wilson and Loekhart, got  his .wonderful poetic inspiration in the  ten-years in which he was'Watching ��������� the  flocks of Mr! Laidlaw. There is often a  tweet poetry in the rugged prose of, the  (Scotch shepherd. One of those Scotch  ���������hopherds lost his only son, and he knelt  down in prayer and was'overheard to say,  "O Lord, it has seemed good in thy  .providence to take from me the staff of  iny right hand at tho time when to us  ���������and blind mortals I seemed to bo most  in need of it, and how I shall climb up  the hill of sorrow and auld age without  k thou mayst ken, but I dinna."  David, the shepherd boy, is watching  his father's sheep. They aropasturing on  the very hills where afterward a Lamb  ���������Was born of which you have hearu much,  "the Lamb of God, which takoth away  the sin of the world.'' David, the shepherd boy, was beautiful, brave, musical  and poetic. I- think he often forgot the  ��������� sheep in his reveries. THiere in the solitude he struck the harp string that is  thrilling through all ages. David the boy  ���������Was gathering the material for David the  Eoet and David the man. Like other boys,  ���������avid was fond of using his knifo among  the saplings, and he had noticed the exuding of. the juice of the tree, and when  he became a .man he said, "The trees of  tho Lord are full of sap." David the boy,  tike other boys, had been fond of hunting  Ifche birds' nests, and he had driven the  Old stork off the nest to find how many  eggs were under her. and when he became  man he said, "As for the stork, the tir  trees are her house." In boyhood he bad  heard the terrific thunderstorm that  frightened the red deer into premature  sickness, and when he   became a man he  fiid, "The voice of the Lord maketh the  inds to calve." David the boy had lain  ' upon his back looking up at the stars  and examining the sky, and to his boyish  Imagination the sky seemed like a piece of  divine embroidory, tho divine fingers  Working in the threads of light and the  beads of stars, and he became a man and  Wrote, V When I consider thy heavens, the  work of thy fingers." When ho became  an old man, thinking of the goodness of  God, he seemed to hear the bleating of  his father's sheep across many years and  to think of the time when he tended  them on the Bethlohem hills, and he  tries out in the text, "The Lord is my  shepherd."  ���������'. If God will help me, I will talk to, you  of the shepherd's plaid, tho shepherd's  crook, the shepherd's dogs, the shepherd's  Sasture   grounds,   and    the     shepherd's  ooks.  And   first   the   shepherd's   plaid.      It  Would bo   preposterous   for a man going  out to rough and besoiling   work   to put  on splendid apparel.    The potter does not  Work in velvet.    The   servant   maid does  not put  on   satin   while   toiling   at her  duties.    The   shepherd   aoes   not wear a'  splendid robe in which to go out am id the  Storms, and   the   rocks   and  the nettles;  he pus on the rough apparel appropriate  to his exposed work.  The Lord our Shop  herd, coming out to hunt the   lost sheep,  puts on no   regal apparel, ; but tho plain  garment of   our    humanity.    There   was!  toothing pretentious about it.  I know the  old painters represent a halo   around   the  babo Jesus, but 1   do   not   suppose   that  there was any more halo about that child  than about tha   head   of   any other babe  work, hard work, and Jesus   put   on the  raiment, the plain raiment   of   our flesh..  The 6torms were to beat him, the crowds'  were   to   jostle, him," the   dust   was  to  sprinkle him, the   mobs   wero   to pursue  him.    O Shepherd of Israel, leave at   the  home thy bright array! , For thee,   what *  streams to ford, what nights   all   unsheltered!    He puts upon him the plain,' raiment of our humanity,   wears   our'woes,  and while   earth, and   heaven   and   hell  stand amazed   at' .the . abnegation wrapt'  around*him _the shephord's plaid.  Cold mountains and the midnight ai������ js  Witnessed the fervor of his prayer. _ v  Next I mention the shepherd's crook.  This was a rod with a curve at the end,-  which when a sheep was going astray was  thrown over its neok and in that way it  was pulled back. When "the sheep were  not going astray, the Ehepherd would  often use it as a sort of ccrutch, leaning  on it, but when the sheep were out of  the way tho crook was always busy pulling them back. All we, like sheep, have  gone astray, and had it hot been for the  shepherd's crook we would have fallen  long ago over the precipices. * c  Here is a man who is making too much  money. Ho is getting very vain. He says:  "After awhile I shall   be independent oi  all the world.   O my soul, eo.t, dunk an  be marry I"    Business   disaster   comes do  him.  What is God going to do with hiinr  Has God auy grudge against   him?    On,  noi God is throwing ovor   hnu   the shop-  herd's crook and^ pulling   hiiu back iuto  better pastures. ' Hero   is a man who has  always been well/   He has never had any._  sympathy for   invalids.    He   calls    them  coughing,   wheezing     nuisances.      Alter  awhile sickness comes   to  him.    He aoes  not understand what God   is going   to do  with him.    He says, "Is the Lord   angry  with me?"    Oh, no!   With the shephord's  crook he has been pulled back into better  pastures.    Hera is a happy household cir-  clo   Ihe parent does n*jt realize the truth  that these   children   are   only   loaned to  him, and   he   forgets   from  what source  came   his   domestic   blessings.    Sickness  drops   upon   those   children   and   death  swoops upon a little   one.    He   says, "is  God angry   with   me?"    No.    His   shepherd's crook pulls   him   back into better  pastures. I do not know what would have  become of us if   it had   not   been for the  shepherd's crook.    Oh, the mercies of our  troubles!    You take up apples and plums  from under the shade   of   the   trues, and  the very best fruits of   Christian   character we find in the deep shade of   trouble.  When I was   on   the   steamer coming  across the ocean,   I   got   a cinder in my  eye, and several   persons   tried   to get it  out very gently, but it could not bo taken  out in that wuy.    1 was0 told that the engineer had a facility in such cases. I went  to him.    He put his large, sooty hand on  me, took a knife and wrappod   tho  lid of  the   eye around the knife.    I expected to  bo hurt very much, but without any pain  and instantly   he   removed   the   cinder.  Oh, there   come   times   in our Christian  life when   our   spiritual   vision  is being  spoiled and   all   gentle   appliances   tail!  Then there conies some giant trouble and  a black hand lays hold of us and removes  that which would have ruined our vision  forever.    I   will   gather all your joys together in one regiment of ten companies,  and   I will put them under Colonel Joy.  Then I will gather all   your   sorrows together in one regiment of ten   companies  and. put them under Colonel Breakheart,  Then   I   will   ask,   Which of these regiments has   gained   for   you   the   greater  spiritual victories? -Certainly   that under  Colonel Breakheart.  In the time of war, you may remember  at che south and north, the question was  whether the black troops would fight, but  when they were put into the struggle on  both sides they did heroically. In the  great day of eternity it will be found that  it wa3 not the' wiiite regiment of joys that  gaitfed your greiisest suectfeses, but the  ���������lack froogs of tumble, misfortune and  disaster. Where you have gained one -spiritual success from ypur prosperity, ,you  have gained ten spjrifceal successes from  yoer adversity.  There is no animal that struggles more  violently than a sheep when you corner it  and catch bold of it.- Down in the glen I  see a group of men around a lost sheep.

A miller comes  along, puts down his   gxist  and caresses  on earth is ailded the   gladness   of c*Elld-  hood In heaven? ',  It is time we got over these morbid  ideas of how we shall get out of this  world. You. make your religion an undertaker- planing coffl-us and driving hearses.  Your religion smells-of the \-srnish of a  femoral casket. Bather let your ivaNgion  to flay come out and show you the sheep-  fold that God has provided for you. Ah,  you say. -there is a river between this and  that!

Ah, my  friends, be not afraid of the shepherd's  orook! Tt is never used on you save in  mercy, to pull you back.' The hard, cold  iceberg of trouble will melt in the warm  gulf stream of divine sympathy.  There is one passage! think you misinterpret, "Tho bruised reed he will hot  break*-" Do you know that the shepherd  in olden times played upon these, reedsf  Thoy were vory easily bruised, but when  they were bruised they were never mended. Tho shepherd could so easily make  another one, he would snup the old one  a'nd throw' it away and get another. The  Bible says it is not so with our Shepherd.  When*tVio music is gone out of a man's  soul, God does not snap him in twain  and throw him away. He mends and  restores. "The .bruised reed he will not'  break." ,    .

And when the storm has passed away  And sunshine smiles on flood and fell  How. sweetyto think, how sweet to say,'  It has been well, it/has been well!   ,  Next I speak of, the shepherd's dogs.  They watch the straying sheep and'drive  them back agaim Every,shepherd has his  dog���������from the nomads of the Bible times  down to the Scotch - herdsman watching  his flocks on the Grampian, hills. Our  Shepherd employs the criticisms and persecutions of the world as his dogs. There  are those, you know, whose work'it is to  watch the "inconsistencies of Christians  and bark at them. If one of God's sheep'  gets astray, the world howls.    With more  heard his voice long ago.    They   are safe  now���������one fold and one Shepherd !  Alas for those who are finally found  oufcsiae the inclosuret The night of their  sin howls with jackals. They are thirsting for their blood. The very moment  that a,lamb may be frisking upon the  hills a bear may be < looking at it from  the thicket.,  In June, 1815, there   was a very noble  party gathered in a house   in   St. James'  square',* London.    The prince,regent was  present,and the occasion, was made fascia- '  ating by,inusio   and" banqueting   and by  jewels.    While   a   quadrille   was   being  formed, suddenly all the people rushed to  the windows. What is the matter? Henry  Percy hadi arrived   with   the   news that  Waterloo had been fought and   that England had   won tha day.  ' The   dance  wa������  abandoned,  the   party   dispersed,    lords,  ladies   and   musicians   rushed   into   the  street, and in 15 minutes   from   the first  announcement of ��������� the good new* the house  was emptied of all its guests. Oh, ye who  , are seated at the  banquet   of   this world  or whirling In its gayeties and frivolities,  if you could bear the sweet strains' of tha  gospel trumpet announcing   Christ's victory over   sin   and   death   and   hell, you  would rush forth, glad in tlie eternal deliverance!   The Waterloo against sin   hat  been   fought,   and   our   Commander-in-  Chief hath won the   day. Oh,,tbe joys of  this salvation!

The Lord our  Shepherd has - a mark for his sheep. It is  a   red   mark���������the   mark   of   the   cross.  "Blessed are they that are persecuted for  righteousness* sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." _   ���������*  *   Furthermore,   consider ' the shepherds'  pasture grounds.   The old shepherds used  to take the sheep upon the   mountains in  the summer and dwell in   the   valleys in  the winter.   The sheep being out of doors  perpetually, their.wool,was better than if  they had been kept in the hot atmosphere  ot the sheep cot.    Wells were dug for the  sheep and covered with   large   stones ' in  order that   the   hot   weather ' might not  spoil the water.    And   then the shepherd  led   his flock wherever he would; nobody  disputed his right. So the Lord our Shepherd   has  a large   pasture   grouad.    He  takes us in the summer to the mountains  and in tho winter to the   valleys.    Warm  days of prosperity come and we   stand on  tun gilt Sabbaths, and   on hills of transfiguration, and wo'are so high up we can  catch a glimpse   of   the   pinnacles of the  heavenly city.   Then cold, wintry days of  trouble came, and   we   go down into the  valley of sickness, want and bereavement  and we   say,   "Is  there   any sorrow like  unto my sorrow?"   But, blessed be   God,  tbe Lord's sheep can   find   pasture  any  where. Between two rocks of trouble a  tuft of succulent promises; green pastures  beside still waters; long, sweet grass  between bitter gravo3. You have noticed  the structure of tbe sheep's mouth? It is  to sharp that it can take up a blade of  grass or clover top from the very narrowest spot. And so God's sheep can pick up  comfort whore others can gather none.  "The seoret of the Lord is with them  that fear him." Rich pasture, fountain  fed pasture, for all the flocks of the Good  Shepherd!   . :  .  The hill of Zion yields  A thousand sacred sweets  Before we roach tho heavenly fields  O** walk tho golden stroots.  Lastly, consider   tho   shepherd's   fold.  The time of   sheep   shearing   was a very  glad time.    Tho   neighbors   gathered together, and they poured wine and danced  for joy.    The   sheep were   put in a place  inclosed by a wall, where it was very easy  to count them and know whdther   any of  them had been taken   by   the   jackals or  dogs.  The iuolpsure was called the shoep-  fold.    Good   hews   I* have to tell you, in  that our Lord the Shepherd has a   sheep-  fold, and those   who   are   gathered  in it  shall never be 'struck by the   storm, shall  never be touched by the jackals of   temptation and trouble.    It has a high wall���������  so high that no   troubles   can   get in, so  high that the joys cannot got   out.    How  glad the   old   sheep   will   be to find tbe  lambs that left them a good many lyears  ago! Millions of children in heaven 1 Oh,  j  what a merry heaven it will  make!    Not  many long meter psalms there! They will  be in the majority   and   will   run   away  with our song, oarrying it   up   to   a still  higher point of ecstacy, Oh, there will be  shouting!    If children on   earth   clapped  their hands and danced for joy, what will  they do when to tho gladness of childhood  If it wasn't for the lynchings occasionally there would bo more trials in this  world.    .

Her Royal Highness  has been known to wear a gown three  successive seasons when it suited her, and  remained fresh and handsome. For instance, at the opening of the People's  Palace at Whiteohapel the Princess wore  a striking dress of olive green velvet,  brocaded with small ripe red strawberries.  There could be no mistaking so distinctive a stuff, and it was recoguized by a  woman who had^seen the Princess in Ireland two summers before as one that had  been worn at several functions in that  country. The style had been altered  somewhat, but thero was the same splendid fabrio doing its thorough economical  duty.  iiv Amber.  thing   found  A Little -iquirrH  Files are not the only thing found in  amber.

'<" %        ",.,8  "It is of first importance to all,users*of ,'  steam power.    Tho   coal   which costs- the ,  least per ton is not necessarily the cheap-  jest coal by any means.    One   of the most  I reliable indications of the steam   making  'qualities of coal lies in the '*percentage of,  | ash. A coal which leaves a large-amount'  of ash is, of course,   a   coal   which has a'^  relatively small amount  of   combustible ^  constituents and   vice   versa.    It > is ' the ";  determination of   the   amount   of ash in .t  coal which 1 beliove can be accomplished'*  with coniderable   accuracy   by   means of  X-rays.    The shadow   produced upon the t  fluoroscope by a pieoo   of, coal of a given  size and thickness is apparently   dependent for   its   relative   density   upon    the _  amount   of   ash   producing   material in  that piece of coal.  "If, therefore, a number, of Bam pies of  uniform size and thickness of various  kinds of coal having known percentages  of ash be prepared and 'if a lot of coal  which is to be investigated has several  pieces taken haphazard from it and reduced to similar sizes and thicknesses to  the pieces of known coals above relerred  to, then it is only a question of matching  up the density of the shadow cast upon  tho tiuoro-,cope by the unknown value of  coal with a sample of known value, and  the quantity of ash per ton in tbe coal  under consideration is immediately fixed *  with I bdhevo considerable accuracy."  So important is the subject considered  that it has been takon up for discussion  by a number of scientific societies. Analytical investigation is sure to follow,  which it is beheyed will result in 'most  important developments. Mr. Haskins'  experiments in this direction have been  somewhat crude, and yot they have  brought to the attention of the world  knowledge which, from a mining standpoint, cannot be considered of too great  value, .'v'* ."  ���������   '.

Tho mud skipper is a large fish, which  walks on land frequently. It also climbs  trees and does other things equally curious. A well grown specimen weighs from  forty to fifty pounds. It has a head something like that of a mastiff, tho resemblance being very striding about the  lower jaw. The scientific name of the  mud akipper is Periopth i I'm us.  | The mud 6kipper walks principally by  means of its pectoral fins ana its tail. It  gets along exceedingly well. It is fairly  common along the shores of the Indo-  Pacifio Ocean���������that is to say, in Southeastern   Asia.    In    Siam    plenty of mud  i skippers   are to be found.

An average man requiros fifty nine  ounces of food per diem. He needs thirty  seven ounces of water for drinking, and  in breathing he absorbs thirty ounces of  oxygen. Ho eats as much water as he  drinks, so much of that fluid being contained in various foods. In order to supply fuel for running tho body machine  and to make up for waste tissue he ought  to swallow daily the equivalent of twenty  ounces of bread, three ounces of potatoes,  one ounoe of butter and one quart of  water. The body is mostly water. The  body of a man weighing 154 pounds contains ninety-six pounds, or forty-six  quarts, of water.  Southern Way to Clean Carpet.

'    Many people, who thmk the American  naw is composed  mostly of foreigners,  will, perhaps, be  surprised to learn   tha^  of the whole number of enlisted  men in  navy 54 per cent are native born Americans and 74 per cent are American citizens.    Of the men not citizens more than,  12 per cent   have ��������� declared   their intentions.    Of the 266 marines who lost their  lives on the Maine 59 per cent, as shown  by the official list of   the   navy   department, were native born Americans.    The  proportion of native born  on the  Maine  was 5 per cent larger than in the navy at  large    Of all the  naval crews the monitor Puritan is the neares Americanized.  - R.    S.    C.  ������Miv������ra>ani������n  Dunsmuir is the man ior the people. Give him your vote on election day,  GLADSTONE, THE UNTITLED.  It is a pleasing reflection that the great-  eat Bfcateinan of England, if not of modern  times, remained by choice throughout a  long and remarkable career the untitled citizen of the country which he served in'the  most illustrious manner. Mr. Gladstone relied upon his own worth and looked for the  most honorable distinction in the performance of real services for his countrymen  rather than in the ephemeral badges of  doubtful honor, which chance so often bestows upon the favorites of royalty.  ' The life and work of "Mister" Gladstone  is an earnest of better things. They show  that the spirit of democracy is steadily ex-  - ending itself in spite of any of the signs of  the times that may suggest the contrary.  The fraternal principle grows with the  years, and the old and barbarous idea that  all human greatness consisted alone in the  attainment of vainglorious distinction is  surely being displaced by the great truth  that the performance of real service is the  onlycriterion of individual excellence.  ���������The Houston Texas, Post.
