EXPLOSION.      ��~��,.-^,
I . S.
An explosion of gas took place in
' No. 6 mine last Saturday, by which.
8 men, all Chinese, were more or
less, burned, and , one lost his life,
presumably by ' suffocation. ' The ,
explosion 'is assumed to have oc-
curred in No. 10 place, No. 2_�� long'
wall  section,   and  is  supposed  to '
have been caused by a oavein in the
1    ,-   1 -�� ,_ ,
intake'airway.    Four'Chinese were
���badly burned,  three-sligh'tly, and ,
one  was  missed,   and   was   found
dead after the section was cleared of
gas.     No damage was done."to the
mine,   there  apparently -being  no
force sufficient to move any'timber-���"'
i.-'-g, and in a short time the place
was; cleared of damp.     It was at
first reported that one of the .white1 ;
di ivera had been  burned, .but. later r
it was learned that this.was inco'rV .

The second match of the League
series took place Friday, and  the
number of spectators showed that
interest  in   the   games   is getting
keener.    The Seniors took the floor,
.first, Unknowns vs.  Mohawks, the
teams being as follows���Unknowns
���H. Farmer,  M. Coe,   L. Coe,  R.
Strang,   G. Oversb}\      Mohawks ���
B. R, Simpson, R. Coe, jr., J. Walters, T. H. Carey, Hy. Whyte.    The
play started off fast and furious, the
first goal being scored   by Farmer
iu 1 minute.     Not for a second di I
the play relax until half time, when
the score stood���Unknowns 19, Mo-
1 hawks 7.     Through the la-t half,
the Indians pluckily stuck to their
heavier adversaries,  but to no purpose, the game finishing with the
Unkn >,wns at 31, the Mohawks 13.
There is nothing to be ashamed of
in the beating, for it would be hard
to find a fitter team of j'oung men
as   regards  strength   and activity,
than    the   Unknowns,   and    they
should   be able  to  put  up a good
fight with any team in the country.
This week the Counters and  the
Kids cross swords.     Both are confident, so the game must be an interesting one.
The Junior game Friday, was
won by the Maples, with a score of
11, to the Shamrocks 4.
Mrs S. H. Riggs is the mother of
another daughter, which arrived
Saturday evening, and next door at
Mr Peacey's another little girl was
brought on Monday night. The cold
weather has surely caused a great
migration of storks.   !���

I was  childishly delighted  to  be  'at home.'  My  father     was  at   the   station      to  imeet me.     He appeared  embarrassed.  :Bertiii.     howevc*:-,   came   to   me with  ������������������streaming  eyes,   and   in   the  stillness  of  my     own  room  kept  calling    me  'pauvre enfant, pauvrc petite!' which  I did  not at all understand.     As we  wore dining,  my;fa������ber explained   to  ���������rne      that    he -was   to   have  a  little  party  in  the evening,  but I had bet-  '���������ter go  quietly to bed.

Bertin, however,  silently,    which    was  not  her  habit,  .arranged'a.simple repast for us, a.nd  made  tea.     When  the  time  came  for  ���������the guests  to  arrive,  I heard    spurs  clanking  in     the  corridor,   and  then  tho     rus.tling ��������� of  silken   dresses.     'It  5s   not  a gentleman's  supper,     after  -all,' ,said I.     '.Listen,   mademoiselle.'  "i'ou    are    mistaken,'    she returned,  .gravely.

It  was the biggest store in town, though  not the smartest.    Joe Beenain,' who  had opened up the spring before, just  across the street, was,running old Gib  . hard   in groceries and  hardware  and  leaving him out of sight when it came  to. knickknacks or dry goods pure and  q    simple.  A man who half knew looked after  old Gib, then across at the sign of his  young .rival and murmured half to  ��������� himself, "What a pity!" Another man  iWho know also looked, listened to the  exclamation and answered it, 'sticking  out his chin, as he spoke, "Better say,  ' 'What a, shame!'"  - "What's a shame, doc?" a third said,  coming up. behind them.    Doctor Waters smiled half grimly.   "I'm not quite  " sure-rit ��������� seems to be the hitch in  the  . course of a true love," he answered.  ���������Lew Bayne, the man who had spoken  first, shook his,head energetically.    "I  meant .that poor old fellow's legs," he  .said.   "I suppose, doc, it's certain 'he'll  never walk again." ,  "Now you've got me," tho doctor pro-  ' tested..   "I'd'risk, my professional rep-  ,  utation that' fall he got on the sleety  - pavement did   no  worse  harm  to  his  shrunken; shanks ' than  bark them  up,  ,   pretty generally.    There were bruises,  of'course, and on the shoulder and side  as well.    I told him he'd be put and  about in plenty time" for "the Christmas  trade, but from the first he stood me  up and-down that he'd never take an-  -' other   steady   step,   and   so   far,   I'm  ,_.__..bound to admit, he was right.

"You  know Florrie  Ezell"���������  "I ought to, considering she sent'me  away'," Merlon broke in ruefully.  "You don't mean Joe is gone" on her  like the rest of us?'  1 thought"���������  "You've hit it," the doctor said. "Joe  didestand out mighty well against the  prevailing infection, but a man never  knows, what's coming to him until it  hits him square in the face."  ''Lord!   To think of Joe. the 'bombproof,'we called him," Mertonchuckled.  /'How did it happen? Tell me all about  * it."  Merton, a newly evolved drummer,  had given what he would have called  "a comprehensive order." ,Dr. Waters  also chuckled as bv answered, nodding  his head by way of emphasizing his  points: "Well, you see, it's this way:  The hour struck for Joe when he saw  Florrie Ezell swirling around, a blue  tarlatan angel, in a waltz with Bob  Acton at the Pattons' party. .Florrie's  n pretty girl anyway you see her.  ,That night she was particularly fetching. But that wasn't the thing. I insist Joo.s time had come. He knew '\  Soon as tho waltz was over ho frc ,-  to   Florrie���������didn't   get   a   yard   away  "It was a fj-eezing time, as I remember," Lew Bayne interrupted, with a  laugh. "Indian summer up to dusk;  then a cold rain, that turned to sleet  in short order. Say. didn't old Gib get  his fall that very night?"  "I'm coming to that, if you'll wait,"  the doctor ran on. "I tell you that was  a sleet to remember.. Joe. of course,  wouldn't let Florrie walk home, though  the, Ezell house is only six blocks from  the Pattons'. No, siree! He telephoned  for the finest rig at the livery stable  and bundled all that blue tarlatan in  it as snug,as you please. I heard Florrie protesting that she ought really to  wait for papa, but we all persuaded her  papa wouldn't think of risking himself,  upon pavement like glass. We ought  to have known better. Old Gib always  does the thing that any other man  .would let alone."  "Bet a hat he came," Merton said,  chuckling more than ever.  "You win���������from yourself," Dr. Waters answered. "He came, be didn't  see his daughter, he wont back swearing like a trooper, though he is a deacon, and he fell right before Master  Joe's fine rig. coming back from leaving Miss Florrie safe nt the gate. Of  course Joe picked him up and carried  him borne. Equally, of course, old  Gib hates him for doing it. By the  time I got to him next morning he  was fully persuaded Joe was at the  bottom of his fall, with Florrie as accessory; said they ran away apd left  him. hoping he'd break his neck, so  Joe could- have both his daughter and  his store. You know be, didn't take  overkindly to competition anyway"���������  "That he' didn't! Why." he even  wrote to our credit man to keep a  peeled eye on Joe," Merton interrupted.       ���������  r "That's like him," Dr. Waters said.  "I tell you, boys, nature must work'  along'a certain line of compensation.  I'm sure she slapped into old Gib all  the small meannesses due to two generations" of * Ezells���������it may even be  tiu-np. TTis father was a fine man, and  his daughter Is just as good a woman  as ever was made."    '���������  "About Joe, now?" Merton queried.  Dr. Waters frowned.c ' '  "Joe courted Florrie with such a rush  that in a week'they were engaged. Then  he-went right>in to old Gib and had  it  out with  him���������told   him  all  about  himself and his business; in and out,  tip and down���������but the substance of it  was  he wanted   Florrie for  his  wife,,  and would do whatever old Gib said  if only'he'could get her.   And then the  old   crocodile  pretended  to  cry;   said  Florrie was all he had to live for; he  hoped Joe wouldn't Dress him  for an  answer then,, nor,  indeed,  talk of an  engagement until he was either dead  or himself again. ������You know,, libw soft  hearted old Joe is, and how he hangs  on; to his word once he passes it. Of  ,course he promised, never mistrusting  the old wretch -was playing him. ' So  there you are! Li"lorrie_s worrying and  losing color because Joe only speaks  when they,pass by, but don't come to  the house. Joe's about desperate, and  old Gib is fattening and getting ten  years younger���������on'spite and crutches.  What the end - is to bo nobody can  guess." ,  "Can old Gib be shamming?" Merton  asked.' Dr. Waters shook his head: "I  thought so at first," he said. " "But if  he is it beats anything in the books.  There's certainly" nothing' wrong with  his legs, except that they're a bit flabby., ' It's equally as certain he can't  walk on them.-o I think sometimes he  has hypnotized himself. If it was just  deceit and what I call cussedness, I  would have been able-before this to,  take him off his guard."       ������  "Well. I can at least go oyer and con-  -dolo with Joe,",, Merton said, stepping  across ihe' street. -   "And -maybe sympathy   will   bo   worth   an   order,"   he  called  back "over  his  shoulder  as he  struck the store steps. *  * '   ' **    "*."*"      *    .   *        *   .  Although it was late March, it was  still nipping cold.   A red fire roared in  the base burner inside old Gib's store.  Old Gib himself sat close beside it, his  -eye ranging all the miscellaneous-merchandise  which  crowded shelves  and  floor.     His three  clerks  had been  on  the jump all morning, but toward noon  there came a lull.    He was about to  send two of them off to dinner when  the   door   opened   wide,   and   Merton  came through, with Joe Beeuam in his  wake aud Dr. Waters and Lew Bayne  marching solemnly behind. . Joe's face  was white, his eyes brilliant, his figure  tense in every line.    Indeed he looked  desperate, and his voice rang hard as  he   said,   stopping   short   three   feet  away':  "Mr. Ezell, I havo come to ask you.  here in the presence of these witnesses,  to release me from my promise. You  know well how it was given���������with a  total misapprehension of the truth."  "You mean you want to take my  daughter, as well as my trade, and  leave me, a cripple, to starve!" old Gib  roared.  , Joe set his teeth. "I mean nothing of  the sort!" he said. "Give me your  daughter, and our home shall be yours.  I will serve and care for you as I would  for my own father"���������  "You Avou't get the chance," old Gib  sneered. Joe half turned to his friends  and whispered scpulchrally: "Go away!  Quick!"  "Going to'murder me, hey?" old Gib  sniffed.  Joe stood very straight. The others  had slunk toward tho door, with the  awed clerks huddling after. They  heard Joe shout:  "It is not murder! I shall give my  life to free Florrie from your intolerable tyranny!"  Then they saw him fling wide the  stove door and dash into it what  seemed like several pounds of gunpowder.  Old Gib saw it toe. With one wild,  whooping yell he leaped from his chair,  regardless, of crutches, of everything  but flight, rushed madly for the door,  darted through it and. did not pause  until he came panting and trembling  to his own gate. As he clung there the  others overtook him, as breathless as  himself betwixt running nnd laughing.  ME. BOWSER'S -LATEST  HE TAKES    UP   THE   STUDY   OF   EN-  . ' TOMOLOGY  FOR A  CHANGE.

It is one of  the most interesting things on earth."  .Mrs. Bowser realized that Mr. l������ow-c  sit had boon "worked" again, but as to  what direction and to what extent she  must wait for his explanation. It was  not long in coming. After walking up  n'.iid down .for.,three-or.���������four .minutes  lie stopped and took a paper box from  his,.pocket and said:  "I  have here a  grasshopper.    I  presume you have seen such'an insect?"  "Yes."  "A question has arisen among entomologists in regard to his habits.  Knnic  Dr. Waters made a lo"w"bow. "If I  had thought three pounds of black sand  would be so r "octual. I would have  had you. well lo..g ago," he said.  Merton dragged Joe forward. "If  you want to kick anybody, kick me,"  he said to old Gib. "I put this lad,"  patting Joe's shoulder, "up to playing  you that trick."  "Humph! I knew he didn't have the  brains for it himself," old Gib snorted.  But, though he had found his legs, he  was none tho less old Gib. . The fact  was proved by his letting Joe and  Florrie marry almost out of hand and  presenting them with both his store  aod his blessing.  ."distend that he sleeps during the hour**-  Of darkness: others that he requires  no-sloop"at all. I am to observe him  for two or three nights and report.  Isn't he a fine specimen, of his class'.'  Lie is awake now. .of course, but later  on. when the house gets still, he may  seek'slumber. Lot ns study him for a  moment as he is. Can you fathom nature's object in making his hind legs  so long?"  Mrs. Bowser had no need to answer  the question. Thosa hind legs gave a  kick and the hopper rose out of the  box and landed half way across the  mom. but hardly had he struck the  floor when the eat leaped off the  lounge and snapped him up.  "By thunder!" shouted Mr. Bowser  as soon as he could get his breath.  "By thunder and Saturn" and Mars and  the great hornspoon, but I'll have her  life for that!"  He didn't get it, though. With the  dead hopper in her mouth tho cat made  three circles of the room and then  went out of an open window into the  back yard, and the study of entomology was knocLod into a cocked hat for  the time being.  "Cut you can easily get another,"  suggested Mrs. Bowser in a consoling  way.  "I shall set another, of course;" replied Mr. Bowscr.% "and it is needless  to add that a painful death awaits that  cat tomorrow morning. She shall die  by inches. I presume I shall have to  walk a-mile or so to find another hopper, but at the same time I may solve  the question of whether he sleeps, or  not. There should be plenty, of tliem  in the suburbs.", ���������  / "But you won't be so foolish as to  go hunting grasshoppers'at night," she  protested.       " ,, ,  ' "Certainly I will. I have promised"  to observe the insect and report, and I  propose to do it. If,I'm not back'by  10 o'clock,, you can go to" bed. I may  have opportunity to study the hopper,  on his native heath, and if so it would  be much better."  ���������'Mrs. Bowser' argued and protested,  but' without avail. Mr. Bowser felt  that the scientific world awaited his  decision, and he clapped on his,bat  and started off. The cat saw him depart and meo\ycd mournfully, but conscience had been aroused too late. Mr.  Bowser had walked fully,a mile beforo  he reached an expanse of vacant real  estate on which he might, liopo to find  grasshoppers resting after their hopful  toil of the day.' He'turned'aside and  got down on, his knees to search about,  and he had been at work for ten in inures without making'a discovery when  a man came, across the uhfenccxr field  with' a club in his hand and called  out: ���������        '     '      '.;       ' '        c _  "Now, then, what in blazes are you  doing here?"      <?    \      , .'   ,  _      "I'm looking for grasshoppers," replied Mr.'Bowser as' he rose up.  "What?    What's that?,  Say. you old  bloke,'don't try to.guy-me!    I'm ou to  you bigger'n a house.  You Have buried  'stolen property here and are'trying to  find it."        ' ,    , -   < ���������      ���������  * "My dear sir. r_    '  "Get out!" _    *     ."  "I want to say"��������� ��������� '  But the man rushed at. him with uplifted club, and Mr. Bowser had to put  his best foot foremost'to get away. rr-Ie  covered half a mile of highway before  he stopped, and he had sat down to  got his breath when' two men and a  dog came along.' The nien might' have'  passed liim.'but the'dog spotted him  tit once' and rushed upon him with  such violence 'that he was knocked  over. His yells brought the men ,to  him, and one ;of them piled on to him  at once and shouted to his companion':  "Grab hold of' his foot. Jim! .We've  got the .thief .who has been stealing our  chickens! Lie still, you old skulk, or  I'll knock the (.top of your bead off!"  , ���������Mr. Bowser started in'to explain,,but  he had only got as far "as to give 'hm  name and address when (the man gave  him a-wallop and cried out:  "You old liar, but don't think to deceive us! Where are your partners in  this chicken business?"  A second'explanalion was attempted.  This one included Professor Girdle-  stone and grasshoppers, but the assailants shouted their disbelief and rage  and thumped Mr. Bowser on twenty-  seven different portions of his anatomy. How he got to his feet, how ho  fought for his life, how he fled and fell  over obstructions, but' finally left even  the dog behind, are matters that miist  be suppressed until Mr. Bowser Js at  rest and some other brain has' solved  the grasshopper question. lie reached  home at midnight: He, was itohuman  wreck. Mrs. Bowser and the cat were  waiting his arrival, and they stood before him as he opened the door. ���������  "About grasshoppers?" queried Mrs.  Bowser after a*lom? look at him.  He uttered no word in reply.  "Do they sloop at night, or do thoy  roina i n a wake to run folks a II over the  country and tear the clothes off their  back?"  Mr. Bowser, looked from her to the  cat and back, scratched his bead in a  dazed way and then slowly climbed  tho stairs and disappeared.  M.   QUAD.  FREAKS   OF WILL  MAKER3.  His  0-,v:i Coin.

Cue   In  Which 'Authenticity  Wo*  CnriotiKly Proved. . .  It Is probable that a whole volume, ,  and a   very   interesting  one   at  that,  might  be composed  of  the' freaks of  legal evidence in will cases.    The evi-"  dence   is   often   purely, documentary;  hence the paradoxes which arise from  time" to time in its interpretation.    If  ever such a volume, comes to be pub-,  lished, it will surely be incomplete" if  the following case, told by -John Corwia '  of tlie firm of Harris, Cor win & Gua������  nison, is left out:  "The . testatrix,"   said   Mr.   Corwfo*  "died in Brooklyn some years ago, and1.  it devolved'upon me, as her lawyer, to*  find and probate her will.   In a trunk I  found an envelope containing a num:  ber of very small pieces of paper,' on-  both sides of which was writing.    In-   '  side the flap of that envelope -was writ-*  ten, 'This will is all here,' in the hand-,"?  writing and' with the signature, of the*'  testatrix. '  ' '      , ,'  - "You    must,- remember   that   these* '  scraps of paper .were very, small  in*  deed.'1  The.paradox Is nus���������that tho  extreme smallness of the scraps was  the evidence that this torn' paper wasi  the last rwill and testament of tho deceased.    The law recognizes tearing aa-  one method by which a testator maj, "  revoke a will, and the intention to re-  voke,is presumed in a testator who so,  tears'one.    But if a contrary intention.  can be proved by another,act done at,'  the same time then the tearing'of the  wilPdoes not revoke it    Now.'in thia  'case the words ,'This will'is all here'-���������'  clearly showed that the testatrix meant  those scraps of paper to be regarded .  as her will.- It. remained to prove that  she so, meant at the time when she tore   -  the paper, af she had torn the.paper  .at one moment, intending by 'that act  to revoke-the will/and had'subsequently written .those  words  without wit.������.  nesses or other legal formality, meaning to revive the force of ,the revoked? -  will, then the latter act was legally invalid and' the will could "not be probated.     Surrogate   Abbott   took   thia  view.   ' ,  - "My contention'was tha'tthe writing ���������  on the flap1 of the'envelope was'in technical language a part of the same rea ',  gesta as the tearing of the will.,.,,I .ar-,.  gued  that if  the .testatrix  had .torn'  that paper tat one time, and .put it in!  that envelope at 'another, some of the .  pieces,.small as they were, must sure- '  ;ly have become lost in .the interval. '  The extreme minuteness of the piece*,  coupled, with'the   fact that  not* one  ,-  piece was missing, was my,evidence1  that the' tearing and the putting into ,"  that envelope* were'one res gesta. **      *    *  "I had quite clearly demonstrated the  , presence  of every piece  by  taking a,'  sheet of glass covered with white pfi-  egg and   carefully  reconstructing thet  whole sheet of paper upon it, leaving  each piece -with the same'-side to tho ���������'  glass as its fellows.   In this way I waa   '  able   to  present   the   will   in   legible  shape. l Its physical .completeness es������  tablished my point to the,surrogate's^  satisfaction, for the presumption that  the placing of the pieces in the envelope and' the writing on the flap were  one re's gesta was in my favor.   And se"  I succeeded in probating that will."  1 To the lay mind the mystery of tho,  tearing of the will remains no less ln-������  teresting than  the curious  legal  evi* "  dence   of   its   validity. ���������   People   whu  make   wills ��������� notoriously    indulgo    im'  strange fancies at times, and it mnyj  be that this woman resorted to the ex*  pedient of tearing up.her will precisely)  because that was one of the last things  which any one who wished to preserve  a will would be likely to do with it,  and consequently no one who wished  to steal the will would be likely to loolc  for it in an envelope containing only}  minute scraps of paper.���������Exchange.

Indian   Tea.  More than 524,000 acres of land in  the Indian possessions of Great Britain  are devoted to the cultivation of tea,  nine-tenths of the area being in Assam  and Bengal. Production is officially estimated at 101.250.000 pounds.  A   Great   Iron   Mountain.  Near the city of Durango, Mexico,  is an iron mountain G40 feet high, and  the iron Js from 00 to 70 per cent pure.  The metallic mass spreads in all directions for a radius of three or four  miles. The entire deposit is sufficient  to supply all the iron required in the  world for 1,000 years. ;  National Hatreds. '  King Joseph, in one of his letters,,  tells his imperial brother of France  that the people of Naples have begun;  to love their new sovereign and that  they hate the old queen. To this-Napoleon replies by cynically advising his  brother not to believe any, of the nonsense talked by courtiers as regards  popular likes or dislikes for particular  individuals. They are mere evanescent expressions of feeling upon which;  it.is quite unsafe to depend. "What."-  ho adds, "one nation really hates ia  another nation." We fear that there  is a profound truth, in this saying. National hatreds are never 'obliterated,,  though they are sometimes temporarily;  concealed by the personal popularity)  which a particular man or woman may,  gain in a foreign country.���������Saturday  Review.

Richardson. *  Wh.cn   the   Indians   of   the  United  States begin tbe ghost dance, the army  '    prepares  for' an   outbreak.    In   India  .when a new prophet comes down from  the Himalaya mountains'and begins to  .    stir up the people -orders' are issiied to  suppress him at once.  He is 'either cap-  .   tured  by   the  military   and   banished  from the province or arrested by the  civil authorities and immured in a dungeon  until' forgotten.   The English in  India   are.  arbitrary   and   autocratic.  '   They realize that.they are living over a  volcano wliich  may rspout flame  and  death  any  hour.   They   move quickly  aiid strike hard. _. ?,  " The coming of a prophet means pop-  '   -ular excitement, plots and conspiracies,  '   rekindling of the flames of hatred, danger to the English rule.*  Strong hands  '   must be laid on the holy man at once.  Perhaps-there will be resistance, and a  .score of natives will'bo. killed, and the  resistance may even grow into an incipient rebellion, but the English put it  down, bury the dead and give out nothing   for,  publication.     To   rule   India  , .-without gloves of steel-would be to e  lose her in a year.  "When  the  Prophet Rajmahal  came  idown to the province of Behar from  Ms " mountain   retreat,   in   which   he  ' claimed to., have'slept and dreamed for  ft twenty* years,  intense' excitement followed in his track. ' He headed straight  ��������� for Moorshedabad, on the Ganges, to  visit the ruins of an ancient temple  and tbe tombs of his long dead ancestors, but he was headed off sixty miles  to the north of that place. A lieutenant in the Sixth rifles had been detailed  -.withhalf the troop on this special duty.  While,it is true that most of the so-  called prophets and holy men wandering about India are fakirs of the worst  ��������� sort,, who.stir up excitement and sedition for the money there is in it, it is  also true that a few of them are  earnest and conscientious and should  be dealt,owith harshly only after argu-  " tnent has been exhausted. The lieutenant found the Prophet Ila.jmahal to  be a venerable and distinguished looking   man.    His ago   must  have   been  - eighty years*-or mote, and yet he was  sturdy and upright and had a voice  like a clarion.   He was a fluent speak:  ��������� cr,'" foil of argument, reason and appeal,'and he was lighting a flame of  zeal in. every village ho passed through:  He utterly refused any cash contributions, lived on what tho dogs would  hardly eat and addressed the people  .without fear of consequences.' He  had dreamed of emancipation, and a  new   ruler.     It  was   sedition   straight  strange jargon ���������������  from the,shoulder, and in'less than a  month he could-set the whole, province  in rebellion.  When tho lieutenant came face to  face with the prophet, he resolved to  try reason and argument. The officer  could but yield respect and did not desire to see biin dragged around the  country, disgraced aud degraded.  Rajmahal was** for defiance at first,  and he had enough adherents in his  train to have ealcn the- troops ten  times oyer, but after an interview  lasting for hours he recognized the  force of English logic and announced  that he would return to his mountain  lair.  Tbe prophet was as good as his  word, but liis return was slow. This  ,was caused solely by the crowds  blocking his way and exhorting him  to defy the government. He had not  yet made fifty miles on the backward  track when Captain Fyfe came on  with the rest of' the troop. The lieutenant was relieved from duty under a  cloud, and orders were issued to push  the old man out of the province at  the point of the saber. Captain Fyfe  overtook him, pronounced him a fakir,  an impostor and a charlatan, and,  wishing to. make the degradation complete, pulled him by the beard and  spat on his raiment  This scene took place in the  open a lithe  full  mortally  and  re  in sight of 3.000 people and  company of soldiers. The act  offended every liiw of caste  ligion, and instead of raising shouts of  indignation the natives simply groaned  in horror. It-was 1he handsome, contemptuous Captain Fyfe, clad in full  uniform, who stepped . forward and  gathered the long white beard in his  clutch. It was a wan faced, misshapen and cringing native who fell  back before the uplifted band of the  prophet. Captain Fyfe had disappeared off the face of the earth while the  eyes of all that wis,*: crowd were full  upon him. Three thousand people looked upon the strange scene, and 100 of  them wore English soldiers. A hundred  different men swore to it, and it was  talked over wherever two Englishmen  met in India. But the press dared not  refer to it for fear of encouraging the  natives.  The second lieutenant, now in charge  of tbe troop, rode through that crowd  a score of times, but his captain was  not to be found. He beat up the country around, he,coaxed and threatened,  but the Prophet Rajmahal strode on,  with his face to tbe mountains, and  his followers were dumb. The troops,  had to turn back.''No sooner had the  report reached the colonel at Gyah  than the second officer'was. put under  arrest. At his trial every man in the  command testified to the facts as above  related. It was against common sense',  to. believe the story, but could they say  that a hundred mon had conspired .to  lie'? They had to accept their testimony and clear the officer, and the omy  tiling left was to poohpooh it and forbid the soldiers to talk.        ,   .-'  What had become of the native who  had stepped into Captain Fyfe's boots.  as it were, no one;could say.   He had  drawn   back   and   mingled   with-  the  -crowd and then disappeared. ,  Weeks and months went by.    Then  ,oue  day  a  strange, Hindoo  was  seen  hanging  about, the  cantonment.     His  face was like that of a monkey rather  than of a man, and his misshapen legs  gave him a queer gait.,- A soldier went  forward   with   a   stick   to   drive   him  away, but the idler.protested, weeping,  and after speaking in a  he fd'rcet? out the words  "Take me���������take me to the colonel!"  Ambling and  clucking , and' chattering, he was passed to the colonel.  Now  and .then   a .native 'came in' with  re-'  ports .worth heeding, and this "thing','  was supposed to be the bearer of some  suchrnews.    Standing before the colonel,  he stuttered'and  stammered and  giggled like a'fool.    What few words  he did utter no one could understand.'  .The colonel lost patience and spoke to'  him sharply, and the "thing"' groveled  at his feet.     - c ���������  ��������� "Try your "cine on'.him,  colonel to a captain ,who  drawn thither by curiosity. '  "That will make him "speak," replied  the, captain as he brought the cane  down over'the chatterer's shoulders. ,._���������  So it did. He sprang up, screamed  cut like a wild beast two or three  times, and then, holding out his hands  in appeal, he cried distinctly:  "Colonel, don't you know me? I am  Captain Fyfe!"  "God in heaven!"' gasped the colonel,  springing to his feet.,        ... ,    _  "I am! I am! I tell you, I am Captain Fyfe," and I want to come back  here!"  Horror struck, the officers looked into his'hideous face and at his deformed  limbs, and ho man__.cou.ld speak.  "I tell you. I am "Captain" Fyfe!"  screamed the "thing," "but you won't  believe it*���������you don't want me. I will  go back!"    .  And as the group continued to' stare  and wonder and feel their blood run  chill he ran out of the room, fled across  the grounds with growls and cackles,  and before a move was made to prevent he was out of sight behind some  buildings. The closest search was  made, but in" vain. For months and  months watch was kept for him, but  he never returned.  had it sawed .and was paid $7,000 for  his veneers.

A certain clever teacher in a public  school once congratulated herself on  having given her geography class a  vivid idea of islands by cutting out  pieces of brown paper and pinning  them on the wall. "That's all very  well," said the master of the school,  speaking from a longer experience of  the youthful mind, "but those children  . will go out into life with a fixed idea  that an island is a piece of brown paper pinned ou the wall." The New  York Post says that two little "fresh  air" girls were noticed on the morning  after their arrival gazing at the landscape with evident disapproval.  "What's the matter, children?" asked  their hostess. "Why aro you disappointed with the country?"  "Why, there's no grass here," said  one, pulling a blade and biting the end  of it.  The lady could only stare. "What is  your idea of- grass?" she asked at last.  Little by little the truth- came out.  To begin with, grass, they thought,  was about the height-of a man.l  "If this were taller, would it be like  grass?" asked the lady.  "Oh,   no!"  "How is it different?",  "Why^ grass is black," said one  child. '  "Black and,white," added the other.  Then tbe explanation became apparent. They had drawn their ideas  of vegetation from the black and white  prints of newspapers and books.  I.incm  In   Maple  Wood.  ��������� Nobody seems to know what cause  it is which produces those delicate and  beautiful lines in maple known as  birdseye. Some people think they  come from the hundreds of little  branches which shoot out over the  trunk of the tree as soon as a clearing  is made around it. Expert timbermen  say that is not the case. The only way  to tell a birdseye maple tree is to cut  it. There are no outward signs by  which one can judge. The Railroad  Gazette tells a story of the late George  M. Pullman. Many years ago he was  offered a mahogany log for $3,000, to  be cut into veneers. It was supposed  to be a very tine piece of wood, but  this could only be determined by cutting it. He declined the offer, but  agreed to take the log cut into veneers  for  what it was  worth.    The  owner  possessed a single trait of beauty, none  had intellectual resources above the  ordinary scullion maid save the elder,'  Mine.

With a lively eagerness he inquired  of the landlord, if there was "an alloy  on the premises. By way' of answer  the landlord conducted him thither.  The good 1 j' company assembled eyed  the newcomer with greeds' eyes, thinking they would lead him on to an ad-'  vantageous game., ' ���������  The learned judge at once acceded to  their invitation, in the course'of a very  short time relieving' every gentleman  in the place of his spare shillings.  Then the landlord thought it time to  intervene and, touching his lordship on  the back, said.

The  workers were a widow ami two small  girls, and at- 1-1.30 . a.m. a-bed and  ilio bedroom ilo.or were littered and  heaped with tho morning-'s output,  cleared from the living room. The  quantity  was a ery surprising'.  A stern little woman" of fifteen sat  at a table working by the window,  and there was nothing so well worth  pondering in - the two cells���������they  wore no bigger or better than ceils���������  as this unprepossessing- child's hard  mouth', strict inattention to visitors,  and almost magical dexterity. She  is not the victim of a mother's indolence. A missioner of .the Hag'ged  School Union, who lives near this  woman, and by whom���������the writer was  introduced to her pretty abode under  tho leads, knows her to have been a  steady maker of match boxes for 30  years'* ' She is a mother of exceptional physique, energetic, large,  masculine, but too gross of body at  50 for any but a sedentcry occupation. .In her lifetime the market  price of her skill has fallen to what  may be very strictly called a living  wage. Of " two husbands she has  .had3, the first was a wastrel and the  second died soon.  What the  child  was   doing  had  the  deftness  and fascination of the Charter  pass   in  legcrdcrmain,  which  few  entertainers  every  accomplish,  feat is  to  paste  up  as a drawer  \ five ���������   swift    movements, an   indented  .strip and a square of thin wood with  a   band   of   paper.     Take     a     match  box  drawer to  pieces  and try to imagine  how  it,could have,   been, put  together at the rate of six a minute.  There   is    no   tragic hurry about    it  The girl satv bolt upright,     and   her  hands rapidly   produced  the   drawers  without nervousness.        But  as    the  parts  were  held  together on  the finger-tips  of  one hand  while those    of  the     other  turned     the    paper   over  them,  the   operation  struck     one    as  requiring     a   particular "development  and     trick     of    every     finger-muscle.  Match-box making is like playing the  pianoforte; there is one good method,  and you. must begin young and practise hard all your  life.     Two  experts  working   in   partnership,   and   having  someone to fetch and carry for them  so  that they may live without interrupting the  drudgery,   can sit  at     a  small  table  and  earn, from  2s  to   2s  6d a day of twelve or thirteen hours.  Half a crown a day is 15s a week,  and that leaves 9s 6d when the rent  is  put aside.        "Praise  God,"    said  the. Cockney missioner with surprise;  "that all you pay?"    The widow has  four children, and  9s  6d a week    allows  five   persons  threepence   each    a  day  for food,  fire  and   clothing.      It  is "said that at least  twopence more  is  necessary.     The  widow     gets      it  from   her   eldest   boy,   a   cripple       of  nineteen,   who   earns   3 5s  a  week    at  tailoring and lets her have 8s.  The  .    in  Eg-yptian   Specialists.

How an Kiiiioont Railway Journal Views-  _     .*' the Situation.' <  The  recent congestion     of    freight-,  traffic  has   served  to ��������� emphasize '< one-  great need in railroad service.      The.  business of the country moves in cycles.    A  period  of ��������� depression is    followed  by  a  corresponding  period  of  expansion1,   which, in  turn  gives   way  to ��������� another  of' contraction,     and    so  on." It has   been  the  evident  aim of  the railroads to - keep   (Somewhat in  advance   of   the   normal   average ���������  -re-  quii'oin'ents.'and   under     the '' c'ircum- -  stances   they  cannot  be 'blamed. .    It  costs money'to provide second, third'  and fourth tracks, yard facilities,,eh- .  g'ines  and cars, and with a constantly declining scale of railway rates it  was,the exercise of the soundest business    sense    to   proceed    cautiously.  Tho , general   notion   that   a 'railroad- '  is   obliged ��������� to  be  at   all    times   fully  equipped-    for       promptly , handling - ,  everything  that     may be  offered  for-  transportation   is .altogether a    mistaken   one.    There ,is. not  a road'-   in  the country that" could have afforded   .-  to   .provide   itself   with   adequate   la-  cilities   for   the   present  yeait's , busi-.  ness.   To have done so  would,   have  required the  outlay of immense sums  of  money  in, the   way  of  track,     en-   '  ginos, and cars which probably would  be "forced to lie idle most, of the'time-,  in the next few years to come.   ' It is < .  easy to  say that  the new' conditions-  must be met,  but if railroads are* to  make the maximum requirements ' the-  measurement of regular supply, 'they  will have to be put in a position to  earn' a  great- deal-more  money.      It  should   bo  understood   that 'the   ulti- * !  ma/te" cost of all  railroading is    paid  for by the people,   and that 'the railroads on their part are willing to do  all that is  necessary, ' provided    only,    .  that the bills are paid.    T'iie .amount  of  protest  against    any advance     in  rates   in 'the  face   of   continual     and'  urgent  demands for greater facilities-  is   one   of  the  inconsistencies     which  abound in all the dealings of the public with the railroads.���������Chicago llail-  way Age.

A utilitarian girl has devised a pretty ���������  pillow and a sensible one as well. She  uses the wrists and part of the backs  of discarded kid gloves for her purpose,  as every woman well knows that when  a glove is worn out its wrists are still  "as good as new."  Every  woman,   too,  acquires sooner'  or  later a  lot of   wrinkled  wrists   of  everything    from    party    to    walking,  gloves, and she wonders, if she thinks  about it at all, what they aro good1 for.  But, the girl who'makes everything  do duty in some way has made the coolest, smoothest, nerve soothing pillow in  the world.  She cut her glove wrists into triangles  and squares and whatever shapes she  could to employ all of the clean parts  to the best advantage. These she  basted down upon a canvas lining and  then worked them with "catstitch" in  yellow floss. The effect was charming,  with the warm autumnal shades and  the soft grays and ivories. To judge by  the looks of it after a good deal of hard  and thoughtless wear, it will outlast  any silk or damask one that was ever  made. __ -  -        ; ..���������   iv  ���������  How to Clean Gilt.

There is a quaint old parish church iu  Plurien, .Brittany, built in the early  part of the fifteenth century'and having, with many other primitive arrangements, the bell rope from the belfry hanging down from the roof of the  nave and dangling just in front of the  pulpit, so that the process of bell ringing is ��������� performed in full view of the  congregation. But what was more peculiar was the projection at right angles from one of, the.walls (also near  the,, pulpit) of a sculptured hand and  ai-m of'full size as though held out from  the'shoulder by somebody built into the  -solid fabric of the Avail itself, and-the.  hand opened and, palm upward and fingers extended, had a suggestion of appeal and solicitation which naturally  provoked curiosity.  .. As there was no inscription or any-'  thing to hint at the nature of the story  that evidently lay behind the sculptured limb,t I made inquiry .of a charming old lady .who was decorating the  altar with flowers iu view of the next  day's high mass,,and she told me that  many years ago, in the faroff past,  there was a wicked villager who went  indeed to mass, but was far from devout, and on one occasion he so far forgot himself in the service on a hot sum-f  mer's day "as to' hold out Ids hand  through tho open door or. wim'ow to an  equally undeyou't friend ou'....de for a  pinch of snuff.  <   The pinch was duly given,  but  St.  Peter, the patron saint* of the church,,  was  so   scandalized ' by  so. terrible  a'-  want of reverence that he straightway-:'  paralyzed ��������� the   arm   of   tlie   offending,  snuff taker,/who thereupon took to bio-  bed and died, but not before he had admitted  the justice oi' his punishment  and had left directions in his will for  setting up in the clmrch of the marble'-'  reminder of his sin,in '6'rder .tlia't-'all-Tu-  ture villagers in Plurien might be w>arnf  ed against the terrible enormity of al-'  lowing any distraction, to interrupt tlie  devout  hearing of the mass.    It is a  curious, story   and   reminds   one   that  there has been an infancy in religion  as', well as in most other of the great  motive powers of existence. -'  ^  i'������   ,        f*  ���������r *l  '/"  /'  ���������/���������(  y'  hardest to  happen. ���������  charity .is  -Buck-  Waiters as a class are orderly men,  yet they arc frequently called to or-  d.jr.

Hackneys of skyscraping knee actioa  are to some extent freaks in horseflesh  of little more real value to mankind  than dachshunds, the sawed off dwarfs  among dogs. The little child who said  of this ridiculous splayfooted, bow legged caricature of the canine race that  it must have,been born under a bureau  hit the mark exactly. The nose smiting, cloud capping horses that try to  throw their front logs over their cars  at every stride are grotesque aberrations from sound aud admirable types.

J,may say  with reference to them that I am satisfied they are all healthful. If properly  blended they should make a splendid  tonic for live stock, more especially  whon tlie digestion is not in the proper  order. Tliey will act as an appetizer  unci will also tend to stimulate the digestion .so that when led to animals not  in good condition pf thrift the result  would bo to auickly improve their condition. I would'-suppose-that this food  would be especially helpful in feeding  horses .in preparing them for spring work.,  and in putting in tone the stomach of  cattle, sheep "and swine that have been  .pushed too hard in feeding. It should  also render good service when fed to  oilves that are not prospering because of  indigestion. THOMAS SHAW;  You  can obtain it from your dealer.

When  America  was discovered,  '* the eik existed all over the continent  fiom ocean to ocean,' and almost  from" the Gulf of Mexico to the parallel of 54 degrees.  ' Four "hundred  , vcais later it had been practically  exterminated, except in the range  of iheR> cky Mountains ai.d in a  few localities in t he. north Pacific'  ' Const. In the Yellowstone Park,  where protection is found,''und -it is  exposed only to the attacks of its  ������������������ n.ijural'enernies. the mountain lion,  the lynx a;id the wolf, the elk still  _exists in giea;   numbers���������so  giea't,  .indeed, that-in hard winters i'nun)T  '" of them starve to death.  In the Olympic peninsula there  are many elk, but the* country is  " being settled up' and is being run  over by prospectors .who travel u\?  each stream and cross every range  of mountains and kill the game and  keep what they do. not kill stirred  up, uneasy and continually wander1  ��������� ing from place to place. Not so  very many years iigo there were e!k  over tl.e whole length of Vancouver  Island and on other. Islands in the  Gulf of Georgia. Th.j Indians kill  ed them for food, used the skins for  clothing and in the manufacture of  armor, and fashioned tools and  household implements from their  antlers. Even wilhin the last forty  years it has been possible to gather  shed elk horns in localities where  there remains to-day, not even a  tradition of ��������� the elk's existence.  Nevertheless, over the northern part  of tbe central portion of the Island,  elk are still to, be found, though  just how numerous they tire no one  seemB to know, Theconntry which  they inhabit is rugged, unfit for  cultivation,   and   while  overgrovsn  -with timber, this timber cannot be  brought out to mar ket. Besides the  elk, the more important wild animals of this region are deer and.  bear The '-conntry has b^oti little  explored, although already the  trophy hunters, eager J,6 secure elk  heads and skins, are making incursions there and finding game in  large num> ers, which they destroy  without the slightest thought of  those who are to come 'af.er litem.  On more than one occasion ihe  Government of Canada hasshov\n  great   and  admirable   wisdom  nnd  , ioret.hought in setting aside certain.  .regions as game preserves. There is  an opportunity to make in the  central mountain region of Vancou  ve; Island a great game presuve  which should stand for all time as  a monument to the wisdom of the  Canadian Government. It is believed that the elk found on Vancouver Island are not the same  species as that found in the Hock}'  ^Mountains, and if this is true ai.d  the species is unique, it.certainly is  wortli preserving.  The far greater interest'constantly   taken    in   game, pro'.ect:6n   by  English-speaking races is'evidenced  hy the recent movement  to .protect  South  African gume,-. and   to  estaD-  blish  in  the iciest  reserves, of  the  United  States  game  refuges where  no hunting shall he done; and it is  'highly'desirable that tlie Canadian  Government   should   continue   the  wise actum begun'long ..ago  in   the  establishment of tlie Banff National  Park and '.he Laurentian National  Preserve,   by establishing, on  Van,  cotiver Island   a   piescye  ^uch   as  we  have  suggested.
