Although the last' game between  Cumberland and Ladysmith was  won by the former, thus making  another game between the two  necessary, we understand that no  word as to future schedule games  has yet reached this team. As our  boys have strong chances of winning the cup, they must see to it  that they are not side-tracked by  any fluke.

''She1 had  such high  ideal  thoughts-of  love���������she found it so easy  to understand  that  one  could die if  the    object of one's affection were lost. Her  .young    heart '  asked  if he loved     in  that way, and she sat gazing dreamily at the blue sunshine.  After a few minutes the Frau Counselor; came along the path. She returned the young girl's greeting cool-  at,  :he  be  her  up-  rrG  steal      the  beautiful  goes  to  him.      It  is  SSy,  and     remained  standing  'entrance to   the arbor.

"Good-night,  Alfred. Come.

If T had only  ���������thought about that horrid garden, I  ���������would not have rented this house."  Lucie'    looked     surprised   and  hurt.  Into her lover's face.     He smiled.  '���������"I wonder    if     that  woman     ever  -���������was young," thought the girl. * And  she stood'a long, long time at the  open window of her room, and look-  -ed  through  the     silvery-shimmer     of  'the ���������spring  night.       A  ray  of  moonlight, had   lighted     up   her little  sis-  ���������-"tor's photograph  on the bureau,  and  now. lay like a     harrow'line     across  ���������the low, .white-covered bed as Lucie  -sought her  couch.     She  had   scarcely  ���������-r.-ilJen asleep, when a bell sounded  through- tlie house. Vi'ith.a boating  ���������heart she jumped up and listened. After a little while she heard Alfred's  steps on the stairs, and soon after he  .shut the door.  Then _a  strange voice  '-spoke: siic listened as he answered:  ���������"I'-will come at once."  "Where  would   he  have  to go?    She  '.-1311111 her eyes and pictured to herself  how quietly he would step up to the  ��������� sick-bed,  and  could hear  his  cheerful  ' voice,   as   ho  asked   questions,     comforting     and     quieting.     "Ho    is  so  -good," she whispered, and folded her  hands ��������� upon, her breast. And she stayed awake until he came back    Home  Iiours later.  spotless freshness that it was much  more attractive than' the old brown  cashmere street-dress turned by the  .Fran Counselor into a morning gown;  tlie worn seams and faded velvet  trimming giving the impression that  it, had just been brought out of the  rag-bag. ��������� - '  Lucie, in a, dainty morning-cap and  white apron, was pouring out the  coffee as Dr. Adler entered.  "Good-morning," said his mother.  "Where did you go' last night?"  ITe first kissed Lucie's forehead  thoughtfully, patted Dcttchen on the  shoulder, and then took his, place before a 'cup. which was adorned in  large blue Letters with the inscription: "For the head of the house,"  an attention 'from Dcttchen to' her  nephew  on  his  return  home..  "To Frau von Lowen's'/'" he said,  quietly, and reached out for a roli.  "Is she worse?" cried Lucie, in  an alarmed tone.  "She requires-the greatest care and  attention. I should be very glad.  Lucie, if you Avould go over, there  this, afternoon; she .begged particularly to have you.",  "Giadly," said the young girl.  "But  that   can  not  be,"   said     his  mother,   "we  are invited to  a coffee  party at the postmistress's. She    lias  particularly  invited "Lucie." '  "Then make her excuses. . I have  promised Frau von Lowen she should  have a visit from Lucie, and I .must  keep my word to a sick person."  "What is the matter with her? She  never troubles     herself     about     anybody." said the old lady, angrily.  "She is,nervous."  "That'is, she is fanciful!" cried his  mother. , ,  "No, it' is not that.. You cannot  judge of 'the matter, mother, as you  do not know the circumstances. However, I wish that Lucie, for Frau von  Lowen's sake .as a sick .person, and  for mine as a-physician, should - go  over and try to cheer her up a little." During- this debate' he .had  finished liis.coffee, *' and getting ..up'  took .his hat from a chair. -"Of.  course, only on condition that Lucie  is willing," he added.  She nodded-    assent,     and' followed"  him  to     the  door.   "What was     the  matter with her?" she whispered.  She had a fit of .despair; she has a  very nervous temperament. I found  'her pacing her room, frightened and  unable "to get her breath; t.hd* whole  house "was alarmed. She kept longing to come to you."    ���������   ,   .  '"Is it very serious?" asked the  girl,  with  anxious  eyes.  "No, no, my child; ��������� she will be  much quieter to-day. But she must  first of all be made'to think of other  things."  As Lucie returned to the sitting-  r'/Om, the -Frau Counselor was saying  to  her sister-in-law:  "Jt will be very embarrassing to  have to say that she has gone to  Frau von Lowen. Alfred, with all  his new-fangled ideas of tolerating  such things, had better have remained in the large town of H���������, where  Sodom and Gomorrah are thought  style."  But, sister-in-law," protested  Dcttchen, "what could he do? You  can rftot refuse the young baroness."  The Frau Counselor could evidently think of nothing; she satisfied herself with a long-drawn "No, no!"  and  turning  to  Lucie,  she said:  "Yesterday  morning you  forgot to  RURAL MAIL DELIVERY.  ���������)"  Summing   Up of  tlie   Situation As It Appears to the Globe.  Rural delivery of postal matter has  proved so  much  of  a'success  in    the-  United States  that it is being steadily    extended.  . The   'first  year     but  $50,000   was   appropriated     for     tho  service.    ' For  the  current fiscal ye?..  $7,000,000    has    been" appropx-ia^od  During    the     interval  the  number,  of  rural  delivery  routes   has   been      expanded     from  148'to   11,(550.       The  area   covered" by   rural' delivery   carriers     now        comprehends     300,000  square miles  and contains  7,000,000  inhabitants.        The   whole   area       to  which,  the  Postoflice  Department ' intends   ultimately   to   give   rural      delivery    embraces     a      million  square  miles,  and the cost of such, service is  computed    at   $24,000,000:        From  that cost,  however,  must  be deducted the additional revenue.    How considerable an  income may  be counted  upon  from cthis   source   will   be    evident when it is pointed out that last  year'' while the increase of receipts in  Uio rural regions generally was   only  2.4  per  cent,  there  was,  on, the  other hand,   in  those sections  which  enjoyed a full rural  delivery service an  increase  of  receipts   amounting to"10  per  cent.     Neither  is  the, income  derivable from  the  sale   of money    orders'and    the   registration   of  letters  by rural delivery carriers to be overlooked.      Last   year   nearly   115,000'  letters  and packages   were registered  by carriers  in  isolated farming communities. , - o   , '  In view of these figures, it is cer-'  tain not ��������� only that.rurVl deliveries  render a material service to farmers,  of which hitherto they have, been deprived, but also that such, deliveries  tend'to become self-supporting. Last  year, although the rural deliveries-  had been in operation on a' continually increasing scale since 1898, the  postal deficit had shrunk from $11,-  000,000 in 1897 to' a little over 82,-  000,000. It'is calculated that no  fewer than 20,000,000 inhabitants of  the United States'are interested in  the extension of free deliveries to  tho rural districts. , ��������� ,  In Canada tho distribution of population may not as yet-be favorable  to any extensive employment of , a  rural free delivery system. Free city  delivery is defended on the score that  as much is chai'g-eil for a letter which  is not-carried on the railways at all  as for one that is carried hundreds,  perhaps thousands, of miles before  reaching the addresses. Some persons point0 out tliat there is a special stamp' by which one can havo a  letter delivered by a special messenger.

A Doulhobor    community    in    the  Canadian    Northwest    has    suddenly  asked itself by  what right it kept its  herds of domestic     beasts   in    subjection.    To ask the question was fatal.  Once admit the idea 'of rights in  this  connection,   and the   whole  fabric     of  animal servitude on  which' our civilization   rests     must    crumble     away.  .    .    .    .    The  Doukliobors    after  all,  have only given an  honestly  concrete  turn to    an   abstraction     which    has  long  been  an    obsession    in     modern  thought.    The  modern European Ian-1  guages ai'e much too rich in   abstract  terms.      It  is our   facility  in  dealing  in words like "territory" and "sphere  of  influence"'   that    makes war     possible.    Jf  we  thought  instead    of the  meadows, the  farms,  and  the    homes  we should seldom send  a Maxim gun  abroad.    So it is with the case of the  animals.

Margaretb. are you really going  shooting? What doth Uncle Tom thay?"  Uncle Tom was Tom's father and  Margaret's guardian. Sho had not told  him about the gun.  Mrs. Talbot looked up from a piece  of honiton lace she had "been doing for  the last three seasons and said, "How  mannish some of the young girls are  getting!" And Mrs. Peters clutched  two of the small Peterses who happened to be near and cried: "A gun! Oh,  my dear Miss Caldwell, don't point it"  here!"  Margaret took the offending gun and  went up to her room. A little later she  was looking out of her .window and  saw Tom, with his clean clubs, starting  for the links; His face was nice and  clean too. He looked so handsome that  she was sorry she had quarreled with  him. She was just going to tell him  that she would go along when she  beard Mabel's voice:  "Oh. Tom, wait a minute! And then  bs she got nearer: "Did you know  Margareth's gun hath come? Sbe'th  tho pleathed!" Then Tom glanced up  at the window and looked so black that  the girl leaned out, calling mlchievous-  ly. "Pretty Tommy!" He turned on his  heel and walked away with Mabel.  Tbat afternoon Mr. Suydenham, over  in the cottage, lent Margaret his pigeon  tray and colored boy.  "You can't hurt the trap," he said,  "and Rastus can look out for him-,  seif."-  ,So Rastus set the trap up away over  ou the shore, where no - one goes. It  was the hour when all the women were  taking naps and the Peters children  had gone with their nurse to the village for ice cream.'  And Margaret started in to shoot  clay pigeons.   She had shot a few clam  shells before, but she knew this would  be harder because the shells are still,'  while the pigeons sail,about in the air.  The   gun   was   a  little   beauty,   light  enough for her to lift easily and firm  against    her    shoulder.      Rastus   got  down  behind   his shelter;     He  raised  his black head above the boards.  "Better shoot while dey's high up.  Miss Mavg'ret," he suggested and ducked again. ������  "Ready!" she called In  a loud; firm  ��������� voice.    Tho disklike object rose from  behind the shelter and sailed away into  the air..   She followed its course with  Her nnger on the trigger, but some way.  she did not seem to find tbe right time  'to fire, and-the pigeon floated unshat-  tered to the ground.    _,.  Rastus' head popped up again.  "Nothing's the-matter," she said.' "It  went rather fast, that is all." Rastus'  grin as he,disappeared was annoying,  and,'sho called "Ready!" for the second  time, determined to shoot without fail  and also to give Rastus only' 50* cents  instead of,a dollar. Up rose the second  disk, and she followed. its upward  course to'where it.began to descend.*  Just then she saw two people coming  along the shore���������Tom and Mabel. Here  \vas her chance to.show them what she  could do. Down came the pigeon faster  and faster. She pulled the trigger,  stepped back, her ankle turned, and  down,she went in a most ungraceful  heap.*  ��������� The report of her gun, tbe twinge of  her ankle and her fall all seemed to  come at once, and she thought, VI've  shot myself," and then tried to laugh-  as she realized ��������� the gun did not shoot  out of that end.- Then everything turned black and she felt no more pain.  The next.thing she heard ,was Tom  talking, in "a strange voice and in a  most peculiar way. ' ��������� ' "  "My darling," he was saying, "my  own little girl." ��������� She thought he "was  speaking to Mabel. She bad suspected��������� ,  Some,way the pain in her ankle and  the thought of losing Tom���������men never  are the- same good friends to you after  they are married;'wives seem to make  a difference���������all brought a big bunch  to her throat. Thenjshe felt Tom's face  close to hers, and his voice sounded  morernatural. '  "Oh, Margaret!",lie said. "Look at  me. Open your eyes, sweetheart." And  she opened her eyes to find that he had  been talking to her all the time. Womanlike, she did not let him know she  had heard anything, but murmured,  "Where is my guji?"  1 Tom said, "Confound the gun!" And  Mabel seemed annoyed about some  thing too.  Rastus and Margaret were the only  cheerful ones. Rastus said, "You done  hit de pigeon, Miss Marg'ret," in a  comforting tone.  Tom was still on his knees beside  Margaret. The latter exclaimed, "My  ankle pains me quite a bit, but if you  will help me up, Tommy, I think I can  hobble back to the inn." So Tom raised her gently, and she smiled sweetly  at Mabel over his nice broad shoulder.  Then she gave a little moan.  "Let me carry you, Margaret," Tom  said.   Mabel bit her lip.  "I'm afraid I am dreadfully heavy,"  Margaret murmured, "but it does hurt  so." Then, as Tom lifted her in his  arms, she said. "Ob.

He had strolled  in hoping for temporary release from  his bitter thoughts,' but the quiet of  the place only seemed to rouse his  brain to greater activity. Yet he could  not think of his story,' the. story already due,at the publisher's. Instead  he saw only a girl's face, now sweet  and gracious as it had been before the  quarrel, now cold and repellent as the  past two .weeks had shown it.  A strain' of music broke the silence.  The choir was filing in. Hastings  glanced carelessly at the white robed  procession. The face of the first boy  caught his attention for'a moment, serious, spiritual, framed in an aureole of  golden hair, an ideal faco for a choir  boy. '    '  ��������� But again his thoughts ran back in  the old channels to the quarrel and its  Am  Artificial  Pearl,  A ball, of beeswax introduced into the  shell of a living fresh water'mussel has  resulted in producing the most remarkable artificial pearl in existence. It is  nbout an inch and a half in length, oval  hi form and pink in color and is now  the property of tho Smithsonian Institution. The ball of wax was placed  near the binge of the bivalve, which,  being kept in a tank of fresh water,  was carefully watched. Tbe irritation  of the wax caused the mollusk to protect itself by coating tho foreign object  with a smooth coating of pearl stuff���������  the same material as that which is used  in lining the inner surface of its shell..  In the case in question the result was  an enormous pearl. Owing to pressure,  however, the wax ball lost its spherical  shape and became oval in form. At the  end of two years the mussel "was taken  out of the tank nnd opened and the  pearl removed. The wax afterward  contracted, owing to dryness, which  caused the pearl shell to crack. This  accident, while destroying the commercial value of the pearl, made it possible to observe the thickness of the  nacreous covering, which is somewhat  greater than that of an ordinary sheet  of letter paper. If the pearl were not  flawed, it would be worth an enormous  sum of money, but even as it Is it is  priceless  as a   curiosity.���������^       *  HE TURNED THE KNOB AND ENTERED THE  FORBIDDEN CHAMBER. .  .'  consequences.

She was a successful miniature painter���������at least fine carriages often stopped at the doorwray of  the big studio building/and her room  rang with feminine voices. That was  the maddening part of it. She lived  just across the hall," so he must see  her many times a day. He had made  up his mind to move. But. then, he  had such a beastly lot cf traps, or perhaps it was some lingering hope that  kept him there.  Some familiar chords on the organ  startled him. Was it the offertory already? Yes, and the ideal choir boy  was singing alone. His handsome face  was .flushed, and in his earnestness he  waved his sheet of music gently to  aud fro.  "Oh, rest in tho Lord," he sang.'  '  Hastings leaned forward.  The words  were apparently for him.    The absolute certainty of the boy's tones carried conviction.  "And he shall give thee thy heart's  desire."  The tender voice went straight to the  man's heart and comforted him. Yes.  he. too, would wait patiently and perhaps some day he, too, would have his  heart's desire. Till then he would wait  and work..  The next two weeks went by very  dirTcrently. Under the press of a new  enthusiasm the book seemed to write  itself. The last sheet had gone in. to.  the publisher, and he had always worn  a smile w'hen he met the girl ou the  stairs. . Her bow'was still as freezing,  but he only smiled again and bumincd"  the few bars from "Elijah." "And he  shall give thee thy heart's desire."  Again Hastings sat in tlie little  church. Perhaps his choir boy would,  sing for him: but the figure of tbe  small leader drooped. In the glare of  the choir lights his face showed white  and haggard, while his eyes were swollen; from .weeping. A wave of pity  went over the watching man. It might  now be his turn to comfort. The sweet  soprano voice was low and broken.  Hastings determined to find the  meaning of the change. So he lingered  after the service, and a kind faced curate told him the sad little story.  "You mean Jack Haines? He has  just lost his mother���������consumption���������  and the poor little fellow is left all  alone. He is being cared for by neighbors, but we must find him a place in  some charity school."  That delicate child in a charity  school!   Hastings  could  not bear the  And so Jack came to live in the big  studio building. Slowly the roses came  back to his cheeks. He did not forget  the pretty mother who had gone to  sleep so quietly, but he haunted this  new big brother like a shadow and  crept into his arms to cry away .the  grief that time was trying to heal.  But it worried Hastings that the lad  should be so solemn.    When he came  in   and   found   the   boy   poring   over  some big book,  he would half laughingly scold him for turning into such a  little bookworm.    "You need some one'  to play with, Jack," he would say:  "It  Is bad for you to always be cooDed un  with an old fellow like me."   Tom wa*  only thirty, but somehow-he had felt  very old and settled since that night.. ���������  But' Jack  always  declared that  he  didn't want to be with any one else,  and he was such a shy child that Has- '  tings forbore to press tho' point,    ��������� '*  He ,was therefore much surprised  one afternoon, on coming in. to find  the rooms empty. Where could Jack  be?', As the minutes went by, bringing  no boy, he became really anxious. The  janitor had not seen him. He was returning from fruitless inquiries when  he stopped short at a burst'of childish  laughter. Could it be Jack? He never  laughea like that. *, But, yes, it was  his voice, and it came from the girl's,  rooms."  Hastings hesitated. And now the  girl laughed. ������������������ It was the same saucy  ���������little laugh "he had loved so much in  the days gone by. It decided him.  She had'stolen his property and should  answer for the theft. He knocked  boldly * on the door.       ���������, '  .Siftnce. "He knocked again. Evidently they did not hear him." So he  turned the knob and entered the- forbidden chamber.  ���������..Surprising "sight! t On ,the floor in  true'Turkish style sat the stately Miss  Trevor.

The girl^whs too .loaded down to  rise, and so she, sat there." Perhaps it  was the sudden flood.of color, to.her  cheeks,, perhaps it was .the .upward  glance of her-eyes'; at any rate," a sudden light came to Hastings. For a moment he stood there 'blinded, dazed.  Then his customary coolness came to  his aid. It wras his turn ,to'carry things  with a high hand, and he must make  the most of it. .*_.  His eyes challenged hers as he said:  "How* long have you been a receiver  of stolen goods; Miss Trevor? I am  glad to see that you have the grace to  blush for your sins, even under your  paint." t ���������   -  Jack was quite shocked. "She did  not steal me," he protested. "I was  lonely, and I was waiting for you in  the hall, and she asked me to come in,  and I came, and we'-ve had a.beautiful  time," he added in a joyous outburst.  "That's just as bad," Hastings answered severely. "You mean to say  that sho enticed you in here."  Jack wras speechless. The girl had  said nothing.  "You might at least invite me to,sit  down, since you are so comfortable."  Hastings went on, "and let me joiu in  the . beautiful time; though I don't  know, on second thoughts, that it isn't  plcasanter standing. It is so unusual  to see you at my feet."  Miss Trevor started to scramble up,  but two strong hands lifted her gently  into a big chair. It wTas a new experience to her to be either commanded or  helped.

'���������^^'^���������^���������^���������������������������^���������������������������������������������^���������'������������������������������������������������������������������������^  "Twenty years! I am notched, and  grizzled. ' You are only mellowed, ripened." Sly friend smiled and lighted a  fresh cigarette. He puzzled me.' Rumor had led rne to expect to find him,  after my long absence, a disappointed  If not soured man. I had sought him  herein the retreat where he and his  cold,'uncongenial wife ��������� lived, it was  said; like a pair of hermits. Arriving  nt a .moment when the lady was_ab-  sent, I thought myself fortunate "aiid  ' prepared to probe the unhappiness of  one whose affection in early youth had  left a very sunny spot on my memory.  I was, in fact, ready to give him all tho  , pity and sympathy which a-bachelor'of  experience can feel for the irremediable  mistake of a married friend.   __  "Have you been bearing tales about  me?" he asked.    "Shall I tell you the  story of my wedded life?"  "If it does not pain you."  ''Do you know that I  have been a  millionaire?"    *  "I have heard something of it."  "The wealth  of an ancient relative  poured In on me after his death.   How  the golden wave came and went is a  1 .story by itself:   For five gild'ed years I  was  transfigured  in  the  eyes  of  the  '   world, and it was during that-period I  met and fell in love with my wife."  ��������� I had heard all this and more, and I  felt sorry.   I looked steadily at tlie opposite wall lest my pity should daunt  him.   I knew the story of the worldly  mother and daughter who had forced  him into a loveless marriage for greed  of the fortune  which' had proved  so  , elusive.  He went on:  ".It was not I alone who thought her  supremely  beautiful.    The  world   had  already bestowed on her a queenship  before-the June' day when I first saw  her, at an open air fete, all in white.  .   pale,  cold, ' severe  and  sweet,'  like  a  goddess in<marble." Her mother walked  beside t her,   a   woman   of  a   different  type. As I gazed after her in what you  ' .would-  call   romantic    enthusiasm ' a  friend laughed'and bade rue'veil my'  r admiration, . as    those -.women    were  c known.^.be,in.quest of a golden million.   If It be tlie������case that what everybody-says must be true, then true it  was that the cold, exquisite daughter  and*  the   haughty,   hawklike   mother  were adventuresses playing a game for  fortune, beauty against a slender purse  and a year or two of prime youth.   Already beauty had over and over again  dared to reject love, adoration and fortune   considerable.    'Their   figure   has  not yet been reached,'  whispered  my  cj'nical friend.  'Your million will do it'  By this time I had proclaimed raj-self  an open worshiper.  I am bound to admit that all the encouragement I  received   was   from   the   mother.     The  daughter remained icy.   I persisted in  my suit and in a short time was the  accepted lover of the woman who held  tne in thrall."  "She accepted you willingly?"  Tacitly so. The mother seized on mo  with effusion.   My affianced wife ap-  'peared just to endure her new position  .with    patience,    nothing   more.      The  mother assured me that her daughter  had a most affectionate nature hidden  ���������under that chill   exterior.    She loved  me, and she had never loved any other  man.    I tried to believe her. . And so  ,we were wed.  "After a time, when the excitement of  my first pride and happiness had subsided, I began to feel reluctantly conscious that there was something wanting in our life together. My wife's behavior was perfect from every point of  view, but there was a wall of reserve  between us which nothing was able" to  break through. Wherever wo went I  was aware that people said I had been  married without' lovo for the sake of  my million. IIow was I to feel cure  that the verdict was not a true one?  Had she given her heart to. some worthy, fellow who was millionless and rejected him even as she had accented  me at her mother's bjdding?  "I resolved to take things as they  came and to make the best of the  goods the gods had provided for me.  We led a life of amusement and pleasure. Our house in town and our country house (not this house; something  much grander) were as perfect as money could make them. My wife went  everywhere dressed and bejewelcd as  the world expected to see her. Wc en-  tertained the smart crowd known aa  society. I was proud beyond the pride  of man when I saw the woman I had  chosen receiving the admiration which  no ono could refuse her. I even thought  she seemed glad of my pride in her,  for once or twice as I looked at her  across tlie shoulders of a crowd that  divided us I thought I saw something  In her eyes of warmth which was absent from them when we found ourselves again in our home.  "As time went on her reserve, which  was my despair,  communicated itself  to me, and the impassable barrier between us was complete.    Do you apprehend the situation?" he asked.  "Perfectly," I said.  "Does all this agree with what my  friends say about me?"  "I confess I had heard you had un  it ended my hand found its way to  his shoulder..''' '.,' '."  "I understand now, old friend," I  said softly. ���������'���������������������������'      : c  He shook himself up and laughed" a  little bright laugh.  "Yes." he said.- "I thought.I should  give you a surprise.1 So much for tlie  opinion of the world and a man's  penetration oC a woman's heart and  mind. And here we are. after all, with  enough saved out of the wreck to live  on simply aud with content. Hark,  I hear. wheels. My wife is arriving  home. Come and be introduced to  her."���������Tatler.  Itnbics   Rnrc.  In trade three classes of rubies are  distinguished���������rubies of the orient, rubies of Siam and spinel rubies. The  ruby of the orient is the first of all colored stones in beauty, as in price. Its  marvelous hue is .that of the human  blood as it jets from an open artery,  that of the red ray of the solar spectrum at its maximum intensity.  The ruby is one of the most exquisite products of nature, but it is becoming more and more rare to find1 it  perfect. It even causes astonishment  to find an oriental ruby as large in  size as the topazes and sapphires of  the same countries. If it reaches a  certain size, it is almost always filled  with defects. Rubies of all sizes are  put to use. The smallest, down to  twenty or thirty to the carat, are employed  specially   for  delicate  jewels,  .fortunately married a cold and heartless woman," I said.  We went on smoking In silence.    At  last he said abruptly, "I have more to  ���������tell."'  "Hurt yourself no further, dear old  friend. I think I can imagine all the  rest."  "Can you? I am not so sure that you  can." .  We smoked in silence for about a  minute, and then he continued:  "Some other time I may tell you of  'how mj' .unexpected fortune departed  as suddenly and surprisingly as it arrived.    The news of what appeared to  be total ruin reached me first in a telegram which I found waiting for me  one night when I returned home from  a dinner party !alone,' my wife having  pleaded a headache and retired to her'  'room early in the evening.   I gathered  up the letters which had come by the  last post and carried them to my dressing room, where. I  sat, down to read  them.   Imagine casting one's eyes on a  bit of paper, as the, eyes of the owner  of a million and raising them with the  knowledge r that one does  not  own  a  penny in the world!    I  sat long immovable, stunned with the suddenness������������������  of the blow.  "How was I to tell my,wife? Mow  would sho bear lt, she who' had' married me for the splendors which she  must relinquish, the woman whose  beauty, whose gentle if cold companionship and perfect conduct toward ma  and the,world I had bought with gold?  If she could not love me beforo, how  bitterly would she turn from me now!  "I had,sat for two or three hours motionless as stone. The first gleam of  dawn crept ,in at the edges of the  blinds, and I stirred and writhed in my  chair. The door opened, and my" wife,  in a white,, robe, appeared on the  threshold in the gray light.  ' " 'What ails you?' she said gently.  " 'Nothing that I can tell you at present,' I said.-  'Go back to your rest.'  " 'Will you not tell, me what is the  matter?' '   , .  "'- 'Certainly. I will tell you temor-  row., It is only some bad news.'  ��������� "While I was speaking her keen eyes  caught sight of the open telegram and  of the letters, sprawled on the paper  which spelled ruin. The next moment  she was on her knees beside me.  " 'Oh,  my dear,  will 'you ,<not share  this trouble with me?'  "I was'so stupid from the shock I  had borne that the sweet words and  pleading tone came on me like a second blow. The .next moment I, was  not sure I had heard them, did not believe < in them. I answered cruelly,  'Unfortunately you will have to Bhare  )1t with me.' ���������  ��������� " 'No, say "fortunately."- '��������� Oh, my  love, my husband,'am I so^ unworthy?  Must I be counted as a thing bought  with gold, living on gold and for gold,  and cast aside when gold fails and  love might well take its place?"  " 'Is it not absurd,' I said, 'that yoe  should imagine you could love me now  when you could not love me through  all the five years of my devotedness to  you?'  "She crept nearer to me and wound  her arm around my neck.  " 'I loved you,' sho said. 'I loved  you since the first day I knew you.  But I knew there was a plan made by  others to force me upon you that youi  possessions might be useful to me and  those belonging to me. The knowl-  edgo of this paralyzed my actions, even  my looks. I knew -j'ou thought you  were taking a loveless wife, and seeing  you were willing to take me so I was  too nervous, too timid, too proud, toe  unhappy, to have any power within ra������  to undeceive you. Now for the first  time my heart has found a way to  speak. We will work, we will laugh,  we will be happy together.'  "She'tightened her sweet hold of my  neck.   My arms closed around .her"���������  He stopped suddenly.    He had been  talking as if unaware of my presence.  .There.'was a long silence and  before  for numbers, figures, etc. Many of the  emallest are cabochons. When' a ruby  exceeds the weight of a carat, it com-  , inands a high price. A-ruby'.rnay fetch  ten or twenty times the price of a diamond of the same weight if it is really  of a superior,quality. -   ���������  How Lincoln Refused.  Judge Glenni W. Scofield was a personal friend of Abraham Lincoln. A  Warren county private, having knocked down his captain, was tried, convicted and sentenced to the Dry Tor-  tugas. His friends urged Scofield to  have him released, so he went to see  the president and told his story. Lis-<  tening attentively, Lincoln-replied: "I  tell you, judge, you go right down to  the capitol ,and get congress to pass  an act authorizing a private soldier to  knock down his captain. Then come  back here, and I will pardon your  man." The judge says that there was  such an air of quizzical earnestness  and desire to serve him about the'  president's manner that they both  broke out in an outburst of laughter.  The judge did not press the case further.  OQQQQQOOCQOOOQQQOOQt  ADVENTURES  em OF CUPE  The Story of a Poor  Tonne Alan's  Visit to the Country Seat  .of a Rich l*\riend. -  Solving  It.

Eb,  for ho had been' one of the more dis-  ��������� tinguished men in college), and .Cupe  ' liad  told his  medical  mates that Eb  .had invited him to spend  Sunday at  his home in the country. 'The medical  student knew that Eb had colored carriages and when at college had dined  wi.th.'the .most    exclusive    families.  They said   he  was  "a-darned,'bright  ' man'"and always talked earnestly,and'  bravely when they met' him:'.  Eb  was  now a  lawyer  ia his  first  year's   practice   "and   doing   darned  well," they had wisely agreed;  , Littlo Cupe had begun the recital of  his invitation as if "it was nothin',"  but had grinned w,ith delight before he  had'ended it, and had dilated, that a  lot   of, girls    from    the    neighboring  houses would bo there with a young  'chaperon. -     ��������� - -'" -"'���������������������������"������������������    j '   ��������� ������������������'��������� "    ' "'     f  The fact,that Eb. had once given a  theater party was the basis of Cupe's  .belief that he always entertained. , <-  But now "Little Cupe wasn't sure if  he had been invited. Possibly Eb had  wid, "Drop in some'time, and we'll go  .out for Sunday," or, "Let me'know  how you're doing. Drop in some Saturday, and we'll go out Sunday." '  "Go on.-Cupe!", the medical students  yelled again. They were doubtless sincere.  Suddenly a puff of determination .carried him to the "closet. He had decided  nothing consciously. From its drawers  he pulled two white'shirts, seven single  cuffs, six collars and two changes, of  other' clothes* (only 0 per cent, diluted,  of these things bore Little Cupe's own  red stamped mark) and was shaking  the. creases out of a dress suit���������  "Drop it!" yelled -one medical student. "I've got to wear it this evening." All the .rest had to wear theirs  too. ."Lord, we're, sorry." Cupe's own  was torn and hadn't been mended.

Eb sat in  his own "box," his desk  topped  by two rows of fresh leather  books and a black tin box, "Re Moul-  ton."  The senior offices opened through'  the sunny doorways back of him.  With  business precision he was deciding that  he would, not stay in town that night,  but'would go to his home for a nine  hours' sleep-and in the morning drive  to a friend's for the day.   With a business chirography that had made Little  Cupe when he had seen it predict for  him a trust presidency he  started to  write to his friend to said effect (see  above).   But he noticed the door.  "Come in," said Eb.  For  thirty   seconds   a   shadow  been hovering over its gray glass,  tie Cupe was. outside trying to muster  courage to  knock.   At  Eb's  voice  he  couldn't };o dowa the elevator,  so  he  pretended he had not hoard him and  made the glass shiver.  -    "Come in!" again called Eb.  With a. frightened little grin Cupe entered. His hands felt cold. '.H.ejshut the  door so that it would not disturb anybody. He held behind him his birthday  dress suit case.  "How are you. Cupe?"    Eb was al-  ' ways  glad  to  see  his  friends.     "Sit  down.    I'll be with you in a minute."  And he handed him a fragrant box of  Lcigars.'.'-. "Have one:"'    .   ���������    "/";  Cupe took one and held his dress suit  case in his lap, but he didn't smoke, for  he had no matches. Those cigars had  always impressed him, and he had  often told his medical students'that  he occasionally dropped into Eb's office and smoked his cigars.  Eb continued writing to bis friend  ���������that ho would be there tomorrow and,  handing the note to a messenger who  came from the main office���������Cupe was  greatly impressed���������said. "Special do-  livery," and then, loaning back, added:  "Weil, Cupe. what can I do for you?"  as if surveying a client.  The stone faces through the window  grinned fiendishly.        ' ���������  "Nothin'," answered Cupe. "I was  bringin' this empty dress suit case  from a store"���������he pointed indefinitely  out toward tho street���������"and just stopped in. I'm goin' right along; got to  go now." He arose meekly and held  out his hand, which felt as if its veins  pulsed with mist. When he said "empty" dress suit case, the two white  shirts, seven separate cuffs, six collars and two changes of other clothes  weighed heavy with guilt.  "Can't you come out to dinner?" Eb  thought Cupe would enjoy that more  than his boarding house.  "Haven't any dress suit." Eb assured him it made no difference, not the  least;   He believed all Little Cube had  had  Lit-  sald. Cupe, after deliberating a prop*  er while, whether, he could get away,  said he guessed he could "go;"he'd be*  glad to.  Eb's house hid in a park and, was  dwelt In by two maidservants, one'  manservant and a chatty housekeeper. ' There was but little' entertaining,  though'Eb occasionally, brought homo  some friend for the night.,     ,' '  The room in which Little Cupe now  stood   was   pink._ with   flowered -wall;  paper, flowered chairs and a0 flowered  quilt W the bed.-   He had been shown!

Eb, who at last realized  that Cupe bad expected to stay over ���������  Sunday, if not a week, explained to*  him that be himself, unfortunately,,  had to.be away for the day, but urged  Cupe to remain and have at his disposal the house and horses. -  "No, thanks; no," said Cupe.' *'t  promised the fellows I would be baclc  for church."  This latter tale was unfortunate, for  Cupe had to rise in the morning earlietr  than ho would have otherwise.-  He felt much like this story, whicK  started with graphic enthusiasm and  then wilted away like a bashful school-  'boy.

It always lives for.'a certain  length of time, then falls out, to be replaced in a vigorous skin soil by another lash. It grows approximately to its  full length more quickly than a hair  in any other situation. It may fade  from the skin extremity. In that case  there is something wrong with the secretion of pigment, and the fading is  likely to increase and be permanent.  Or it may fade from, the tip. In tho  latter case the lash itself is either effete or injured.' If .a*. lash fading from  the tip has the faded part cut away,  the lash will 'grow and will not show  any fading. A lash, like, any ��������� other,  hair, does not grow.from the free end,  but from the part within the skin.

At, a   meeting of   the  Kootenay  Presbytery held at* Nelson on  the  15th  February,  a   resolution  was  passed   entreating  and   emploring  the  directors   of  the   Crow's  Nest  Pass  Coal Co., to adopt the most  prompt and energetic measures to  adjudicate upon the. alleged grievances of the men, with a view to the  immediate resumption of,work and  ,thus  averting   the   hard-rhips   and  sufferings which mustfall upon the,  .,families of( the strikers.    The  resolution attributes the cause of the  strike to repeated breaches of faith  on ihe part .f the managers of the  Coal Co., and'their failure to meet  the men and   their   representatives  in   a brotherly  spirit,  or to  adequately recognise either their ft-ei-  , ings or their rights.    The Victoria  Colonist  in   commenting   on   the  Fernie strike, and the troubles at  Nanaimo, says   " it is curious  that  troubles  should   have  broken   out  simultaneously at Fernie and Nanaimo immediately upon the opening of the United States market to  .Canadian coal, as the Western fuel  interests predicted the the ruin  of  their   home  "industries  if   British  ' Columbia coal was allowed in free  of duty." . This is only a conjecture!  The. real cause of the strike is the  dissatisfaction  of  Montreal shareholders   with the smallness of the  dividends paid on Crow's Nest Coal  mines stock, which is held in that  ' city to the extent of some twenty  ' millions of dollars.  ' Expenses must  be   reduced  in  order    to   increase  dividends, andthe first move in this  direction has caused trouble.  TRAP FISHING.  " The Victoria Chamber of Com  merce has passed a resolution, in  favour of allowing British subjects  to use traps, drag nets, and purse  seines for the catching of fish in  British Columbia waters,' and ask  the assistance of Nanaimo" and  other Island cities. A committee on  manufactures was also appointed  for the encouragement pf home  manufactures.  DIRECT rrom the GROWER to the CONSUMER  C.J.  MOORE.

MacRae, Presbytery  .clerk, Victoria, Feb. 20th, 1903.  , '  PRESENTATION   AND  VALEDICTORY.  " After a business meeting of the  managers of St. George's Church  they adjourned to the residence of  Mr Riley to bid farewell and Godspeed to their pastor Rev. Thomas  Glassford. In reply he thanked  them and in a few well chosen  words reviewed his pastorate, among  them, forecasting for the congregation usefulness and prosperity if  they were loyal to their Master the  Great Head of the church.  On Thursday a delegation of a  number of the congregation met for  the purpose of presenting Mr Glass-  ford with a gold-headed cane as  souvenier of his stay among them  and as a token of their respect for  his sterling qualities as a pastor,  friend and Christian gentleman.  The following minutes are an index  of the esteem of the colleagues of  Rev. Mr Glassford in the Presbytery of Victoria:���������<; In accepting  the resignation of Rev. T. S.
