Miners do not.. So  long as a   man is, willing ' to give  part of his life, he should, be   paid  accordingly,  Mr. Simpson here  asked Chairman Clute to  pick   out. witnesses  from a full list of miners in employ,  of Well. Coll. Co., which- he   sub  mitted.    Mr. Clute,. without seeing  ihe list, decided   to   call   the first  four,   provided   their work  would  allow them to attend when wanted.  The first of these was R. H. Hod-  son.   He employed  Chinese  help  at $1,50 per  day,  earn  about $4  himself.    Would not prefer white  helper here under present'' conditions.    Had one two years ago  for  a time, paid hiin $2.25.    Made   no  difference in his  gains.    Difference  by working with partners would be  that  they   could   not get   enough  boxes.   If they  could, could  each  make as much   as   one  does now  with a Chinaman,    Would   preler  white  help   except   for  that.    Do  not know of any white who prefers  Chinese - help.    Some   Chinese are  as g������ -od. as whites as hel per's.    Asa  body they  are   not   so   good.     If  every one   got   rid. of   Chinese  he  would be glad to.    Would be satisfied to makea little   less.    Chinaman not equal to two white miners  together,   .Both wbites.understarid-  ing, could change work.     Thought  as..conditions were iq-.day, Chinese  were safe in stall1, where he  wo'iked ,  but thought whites -better such  as'  at brattieing,   track    laying   &e,.

"I am , talking ' about your extrava-  ��������� gance," said<her husband. "If it continues, you will simply burst up the show,"  be added, relapsing into slang.  "I'm1 afraid your theatrical friends are  demoralizing your English."  "The English language has nothing tc  do with the conversation," he snapped.  "Not with your conversation, dear,"  said his wife swcetly./tj .   '-' &   ,  "And I'm tired of these dark allusions  to my theatrical friends. It's absurd tc  imagine that because I take' a girl tc  supper that���������that there's anything in it.  She was*" an old friend."  "I o should hardly call her old," said  Mrs.������"Portland-Rhodes critically. "Suppose we say middle.aged V"  "Anyway, we" are" drifting from the  point."    '���������  "What is the point of this (dialogue?"  inquired his wife, with extreme affabili-  ' ty. '  "Your extravagance. I cannot stand  the pace. What's to be done with these  things?" indicating a little pile of bills.  "I'm afraid   I  have .no  bead   for  business," said his wife, looking tired.  ..    "But how are we going to meet them?"  Mrs.  Kbodos  sniffed  her smelling bot-  * tie1 with an air of extreme patience.  ,   ���������  "Why   not   write   out   a   check?"   she  .murmured. V  "Write out a check?" heWgasped.  "What the"- ,     ^^V  "If, you  wish the servants to know all"  our  private  affairs,   I'll   ring  the   bell,"  said  his  wife.     "But  don't   shout. <doar.  ' because it makes my .head'ache."  *       There  was only  one  reply  for an   independent     husband.        Mr.     Portland-  Khodes   gathered   up   the   pile   of   bills,  housekeeping and otherwise, placed them  ���������   by  his   wife's   plate   and   stalked   to  the  door.  "You've  made a  very poor breakfast.  Charles," said his wife sympathetically.  "And   you'll    make   me   a    very    poor  man." he muttered.  "I'm sorry, dear. I forgot how many  calls you have upon your private purse."  This was the last (straw. The husband banged out of the room, muttering  expressions which would uot be permitted even at a religious demonstration.  It was a pretty piece of acting on her  part���������the airiness, the nonchalance, tho  magnificent contempt for debt. It was  all put on. She was in a complicated  frame of mind. She was jealous of hei  husband on ��������� account of an innocent  "spree" of his, which green glasses had  made hideous. She was uncomfortably  conscious that she was on the high road  to making a fool of herself. She was up  to her pretty little ears" in debt. aud.  above all, she was in a funk about it.  In .short, Mrs. Portland-Rhodes had  cast herself for an unsuitable role. At  the bottom of her heart she was a romantic little creature, ridiculously in love  with her husband, with philanthropic  tendencies and a reasonable weakness  for "dressing decently."  There is no - more pitiable sight than  that of a scrupulous person trying to be  unscrupulous. She hated to owe money,  but to keep level with the times she ran  headlong into debt and suffered agouies.  She adored her husband and quarreled  with hink She despised married flirts  and, was*"carrying on three open flirtation's, to say nothing of a mysterious one,  at the mere thought of which she trembled. In short, she was a poor, worried  little woman who was walking in-slippery places and expecting to come a  cropper every minute.  A wec>k before, she had attended a  fancy di'ess masked ball given at the  Ambidextrous. Mrs. Rhodes was robed  as ��������� the ��������� Morning Star and paired off  with the man iu the moon. She believed-  her partner to be a certain Percy Lad-,  broke, whom she counted among her admirers. They' became quietly confidential, and Mrs. Rhodes rather let the cat  -out of the bag with regard to her finan-  "������������������ cial scrapes. The man in'the moon was  sympathetic. He had ' bad a "straight  tip.'" Should be put a bit on for her? Mrs.  Rhodes'hesitated ' for a variety of reasons., one being that she had no spare  cash to lose, and was already out of her  depth.  "I'll tell you what I shall do," said the  man in the moon. "I shall have a flutter  myself, aud I'll buy a few shares for you  too. If it turns out badly. I'll get it back  for you some other time. But it's too  good to miss.    Vou must be in it."  "This arrangement sounded very comfortable aud Mrs. Rhodes assented.  Her first shock was received next day  when sV.e learned that the man in the  moon was not by any means Percy Lad-  broke, as that young gentleman was  away in the ������ountry. The next shock  was a polite letter of congratulation from  the man in the moon, inclosing a note for  $1,000.   The dabble in Angelicos had suc  ceeded beyond lyv "expectations.  ' It was a curious position for a married  1 woman. What was she to do? A man  she did not know, for he bad not even  signed bis name, probably thinking she  already knew it, had sent her a round  sum of money. H** might be mad. lint  who .would believe the story? Would  any sane person., especially a mere husband, believe that a stranger,, would  hand her a share of a speculation in  which she had   not  staked a  farthing?  On the other hand, she gave a-sigh  of relief when she'recollected that, not  knowing who he was. she could not return it. That fact, combined with the pile  m' hills and- her huNh.'i"d's irritation oa  lirii'incial snbjctcb, decided her. "anil slio  cashed the uote, aud utilized it to stop  the mouths of her hungriest creditors.  'But it seemed, as if she was doomed to,  face the unexpected. It happened that  night that, for a wonder, she and her  husband dined tete-a-tete. lie was gloomy  and silent; she as airy and flippant, as  usual., '  "I have had a, lucky speculation , in  Angelicos." he said quietly wheu the  servants had left the, room.  "You don't look as if you had," she  said, cracking a nut.  "And I hoped to give you a pleasant  surprise," he added, "so I'drove around  lo some of yoiir people this afternoon to  pay your bills."  She went white and nearly pinched a  linger instead ofra'nut.  "I was rather surprised to learn, that  you yourself had been around this morning and paid them money ou account."  s There was an uncomfortable silence  while his wife restrained a desire'to use  unladylike language on the subject of  Angelicos and pleasant surprises generally. "' ,  , "That was very kind of you," she,said  at last. , ,  "May I ask where the money came  from?" he asked. '   ' ,   '     ,.  "I never knew anybody to talk so  much about money as you do," she said  evasively. "Suppose you try another  subject?"-  "You hare'been telling me for several  days that you are hard up." he continued  in .the same dry voice. "I should really  like to know how you contrived to pay  away the best part of a couple of hundred in- cash when you are without  funds."  "I had a little flutter in Angelicos,  too," she said easily.      <  "Who put- you on to it?" he asked  sharply. "There were not a dozen men  in town who knew anything about it."  "I ���������I met somebody at a dance, and���������  and somehow it leaked out that I wa<  rather1 bard up. anu���������and he said he'd  put something on -for me," she replied.  "Of course I didn't know he meant it,  but 1 heard from him this morning."  Iler husband whistled softly.  "This is a fuuuy sort of story. Violet,  for a woman to tell her' husband." he  said*1 gra;vely. but not unkindly. "Who  w,as the man?" , ; '  There was something in" the tone of hij  voice which told her that further evasion  would bo worse than-useless, "������o defiantly  she Mold the whole story.  , "'.May I see* the letter which . accompanied the'noto?" said her husband.  She produced it. It was written on  club note paper.  1 "I shall have no great diflieulty in finding out who this is," he said. "I shall  send a check. F don't want you to take  anybody's money except inline."  "Is that ail?" she said coldly. "'Have  you anything else to say?"  "It's not much good for me to say  anything."  "I thought you might like to preach  one of your lay sermons," she said.  "Not at all." he answered, with a provoking smile. "I'm not like somebody  I kuow. I'm-not going to make a mountain out of a molehill. But, renliy. a  masked ball at the Ambidextrous and :i  check from a stranger is almost as  naughty as my taking an actress to supper. We seem to be both going to the  biul."  This was humiliating. Mrs, Rhodes  expected a lecture and 'was only being  chaffed. Moreover, the chaff was kindly, and she found it rather a struggle to  keep the tears back. But when hev sat  down to bis desk aud wrote out. a Hiei-U  and said, "There, how, will that help you  out of your pickle?" she broke down  altogether and wept like an'ordinary woman. O  "Shall we cry quits?" he said. "You  forget the supper, and I forget the man  in the moon.  "Suppose- we say a little goose?" he  corrected.  After she had left the room he looked  at himself in the glass and nodded at li:s  own reflection.  "It's all right now." he muttered, "but  she must never .find out who the m:in  in the moon  really was."  And the reflection in the glass winked.  ���������Modern   Society.   ���������  tdenly,   as   if   sprung   from   the   ground,'  a man approached him.

He then  arose and made a speech, after which the  band played 'Hail, to the Chief,' amid  great applause.  "I asked a gentleman who sat near me,  'and who understood German, what all  (he fuss was about, and he said the fellow who had just made the speech had  treated the band to beer.

She was so poor thatshepossessed nothing but a hen,, and that she held as dear  as her, eyesight. She cackled for it and  tended it both, early and late. But one  day, sure enough, the hen was lost. Then  the woman went round about the place,  and sought and called for it. but the hen  was gone, clean gone. . ' ,  - "You must go" out and try to find-our  hen," she said to the eldest daughter.  "We must have it again, even if we have  to go into the mountain for.it.V" So the  daughter said she would go and look after it, and she ran hither and thither and  sought- and-.shouted, hut no.hen could  she fiud. .But just then she heard a voice  calling, as it appeared,'from a long way(  in the mountain:       .     ���������.     ��������� ���������  ."The hen's running about in the mountain!  ,   The hen's scratching- about in the mountain!"    '  t ... ,  Away she went to see where the voico  came from, but at the foot,of a precipice  -she fell right'through a1 trapdoor, deep,  deep down into a vault 'underground.  She wandered through many chambers,  each one finer than the last, and when-  she reached the farthest one a-great ugly  mountain troll came up to' her and said:  "Will you,be, my sweetheart?'!.  '��������� "No," she said, "indeed I will not," and  she wanted to go up again at once to see,  after her hen. l At this the troll was so'  angry that he took her and twisted her  'head off and threw her body and head,  too, down into the cellar.  The mother sat at home waiting and  waiting, but no daughter came back.  She waited a good long time, but when  she could neither hear nor see auything  about her she said to tho middle daughter that she would have to go out and  ���������look after her sister, "and you may call  after the hen at the "same time." she said."  ���������So the second sister went out. and,- it  happened with her just as with the first:  she went and sought and shouted, and-  she, too, heard the voice calling far off  in the mountain:  "Tlie hen's running about in the mountain!  The hen's scratching about in the mountain!"  That was queer, she thought, and sin  would go and see what' it was. So she  fell through the trapdoor, too, deep, deep  down into the ��������� vault. There she went  through all the chambers, and in the farthest one the mountain troll came to her  and asked her if she would be his sweetheart. No, indeed, she would not, for  she wanted to go n������ again at once to look  after the hen that had strayed away.  So then the troll was angry, took her and.  twisted her head off-and threw'-bor head  and her body. too. down into the cellar.  Now. when the woman had sat' and  waited for the second daughter ever so  long and she could neither hear' nor see  anything of her she said .to the.youngest:  "Now you'll have to go out and look after  your sisters. It was a bad job that the  hen went away, but it Would be worse  still if we should never find your sisters  again. But you can be calling for the  hen at the same time tliat you are look'-  ing for them." ...  She went the same road as her sisters  and fell through, the trap and saw them,  lying there in the vault. Just as she had  shut the door the troll came.to her.  "Will you be my sweetheart?" he askr  ed. ' '  "Yes. willingly I will," said the girl.,  for she knew well enough-what had become of hpr sisters.  When the troll heard it, he gave her  beautiful clothes, the most delightful she  could wish for, and everything else she  could desire, so happy was he that at  last some one would-be his sweetheart.  When she had been there some time, it  happened one day that she was more low'  spirited and quiet than she generally was.  so tiie troll asked her what she was moping about.. "   ".'  "Oh," said the girl, "it is because 1  cannot go to see my mother, and she is  certain to be both hungry and thirsty,  and there is no one with her."  "Well, you can't go to her," said the'  troll, "but you can stuff some food in a  sack, and I'll take it to her."  She thanked him and, said she would  do so, but at the bottom of the sack she  put a lot of gold and silver and then a lit-  look into it. He promised her that he  would not, and when the troll went,out  she watched him through a hole in. the  trapdoor, and when be had gone part  of.the way he said:,  -., "This sack is so heavy, I will just look  ,what there is imit." and he was about to  untie the .string when the girl called out:  "I sre you,still:    1 see you still!"  "Bother your eyes, and .you. too." said  the troll, but he dared not try it again.  So'at, last he came to where the widow  lived, threw the sack in at the door and  said:  ������������������There's some food from your daughter, and she's all right. Vou make your,  mind easy about that.".  After the girl had been in the mountain  some time longer it happened that a goat  fell down tlirough the trapdoor.  ,"Who   sent   for   you. -you   long   haired  beast?" said the troll, and tie was so mad  that   he  took   the goat,  twisted   its  head',  off and threw it down into the cellar.     '  "Oh. dear, whatever d..l you do' that  for?" said the girl "I should like to have  had that goat down I sere to aiim^e nie."  "You don't, in ed to (nil! -iicli a f:iee  about it." said the troll "I cui ������������������-non  bring the life back into the goat " T:ieti  ho rook.dowu u not,that limur on the,wait.  stuck the head on the goat, euieared n  with the, stuff from the pot, and it was  all right again.  "Ah,'ah," thought' the girl, "there's  something' wor'th having in that pot."     v  When she had been'a good time longer  with the troll, she made haste with her  work' one day while the troll was out,  took the eldest of her Bisters, put her  head on and smeared -her with the stuff  from the pot, as she had.seen the troll do  .with the goat, and immediately her sister  came to life again. The "girl1 then pressed  her down into a sack, put a little food on  the top and as soon- as - the troll came  home said to'him: '  "My dear,'tI want you to go home to  ��������� my mother again with n little food.' I  know she's both hungry and thirsty, poof  thing, and she's all by herself too. But  ,vou-' must on no account look into ,the  jack."        ;'.,,'  So he said, that he would go witll ,it  and he would not look-Jnto the sack either. But when he had gone part of the  way lie said. "This sack' gets awfully  heavy," and when- he had gone -farther  still .he.said that he would look for himself what there was , in it. "However  good her eyes are. she can't see me "now.",  said he to himself. But just as he was  going'to open it' the girl in the sack called  out: , ��������� . -     '     '  '   "J see you still!',I see you still!"  -"Bother the eyes in your head, and  you, too," said the troll.* for he supposed  :that it was she in the mountain who  called,;out., He did not dare to try-to  look into it again, but he carried the sack  to the1 mother as fast "as he could, and  when he came to the door he threw the  sack in, saying: "There's some,'food from  .your .daughter, and she's all right. You  may make your inind easy about' that."'.  So when the girl had l<en in the .mountain some -time longer she did the same  thing with the other sister���������put her head,  on, snieai-ed her with the'Stuff'from the  pot and stuffed hor into the sack. But  this time she put over, her as much gold  and silver as there was room for, and  just at the top she placed a little.food.  "My dear,", she said to the troll. "I  want you to go home to my mother again  with a little food, but don't look into the  sack."  So the troll said he would willingly help  her-and promised, too, that-he would not  look into the sack: But when he Jiad  gone -part of the Avay he thought it got  very heavy, aud when he had gone farther still he could not .carry'it; he must  put it down and rest.. ,He .was then just  going to loose the band and look into the  sack wh^n the girl inside called out:  -  ''I see you still!    I see you still!"  "Bother your eyes and you, too," said  the troll, and he did not dare to attempt  to,Io'ok into the sack again, but made all  the haste he could and -carried the sack  straight to'the mother. When he came  to the door, he threw it right' in. saying:  "There's some food from your daughter,  and she's all right. You may make ycur  mind easy about that." .  When the girl had been there a good  time longer,- the troll said one day that he  was going out. So the girl shammed  that she was,very ill and whimpered and  complained.  "It's no good your coming home before  12 o'clock," said she, "for I cannot get  dinner earlier thAn that, I am so wretched and ill."  But as soon as the troll was gone she  stuffed her clothes full of straw and set  the straw girl in the corner by the hearth  with a.stick in its hand so that it looked  just asif-Shc herself were standing there.  Then she hastened" home and got a  sportsman with a gun to go with her into  her mother's cottage.  When it was 12 o'clock or about that,  the troll came homo.  "Bring the dinner," said he to the  straw girl.    But she never answered..,  GASTRITIS.  The Symptoms.and the Treatment of  This Irritating Disease.

A GIRL'S PERIL
A BRIEF STORY OF INTEREST TO
AL.L YOUNG WOMEN.
Pallor, Headaches, Dlreiness and a Feel-
ingot Constant Lanjfour Overcome���
Hope Far-Similar Sufferers.
There are thousands  of young girls
throughout Canada    who    owe    their
good health,  if not life itself, to the
timelyuse of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills-
for Pale People.    Among these is Miss
Maud Patterson,  -whose home  is '' in
the vicinity of Struthroy,  Ont. To a
reporter who    interviewed   her, Miss
Patterson' said :    "Several year's ,ago
I began to suffer from headaches,was
easily0tired out, and could see     that
my health was-not what it had .been.
At   first I did not think    there   was
anything    serious   the    matter, o   and
thought thCtrou/blo would pass away..
In  this,,    however,' I  was  mistaken,
for as time went on T became weaker.'   The headaches attacked me more
frequently, my appetite failed.      If  T
stooped I -would grow so dizzy ' that
I  would  almost  fall   over. :T became
very pale,  and always felt  tired  and
worn out.    I was advised  I o try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills,  and 1 have reason'to rejoice that I followed   tho   advice,  and'as I continued their use, it
seemed  as   though  day * by  day  they
were imparting new life   to me.   ,My
appetite improved,  the .headaches disappeared,  the pallor" left', my. face, the'
dizziness    that  bothered mei so much
also disappeared, and I ,felt, altogeth-
er���like a different^ person.    I feel that'
I owe my renewed health entirely to
,Dr. Williams'.Pink Pills,    and,/ as   I
know- that there are many girls -who
suffer as I did I would urge them to
lose no -time  in giving this medicine
a fair trial." '     . * <
The case of Miss Patterson'certainly carries .with "it a .lesson to-others'
who    may   .be     pale,   languid,   easily
tired,   or..subject  to     headaches,     or
the other" distressing  symptoms  that
mark the   onward progress of    anaemia.      In" cases  of this  kind Dr. Williams'  Pink JPills will' give more certain   and    speedy  results   than     any
other  medicine.    They' act    promptly)
and  directly,   making  new,  richi red,

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach the
diseased portion of the ear." There is only one
way to cure deafness, and that-ia by constitutional remedies Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous'lining of the
Eustachian tube.' When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect
lieu ring, and when it is entirely close u deafness
is the result, and unless- the inflammation caa
be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing willcbe destroyed'for*

C.  DEAN.  "BInmod  if  I, know,  gol   on   to   something.  *   ������^he sat down to write a letter to him.  inviting him to call upon her that even-  ' ing, but before she hud'concluded it she  joceived a letter from Claymore asking  Iter to "accompany him in a boat ride  on the bay 'that evening- at 0, us he,  was very' lonesome without her.", She  reasoned that on the bay, away front  other ears, would be <a good place to  say what she wishes to him, so instead  'of, sending h'm an - invitation to visit  her, she tore up her letter' and sent an  acceptance of his invitation; changing  'the hour,' however, from !) to 7, as the  time she would meet him at. the boat-  house.  The reason for Claymore sending thtec  invitation    to    Elizabeth   to   meet   him  oi. the bay   is not difficult of explanation.    Tie became aware that, a lawv������r  was making searches  into   the  titles  of.  ,the   Claymore   and    Lossing   properties,  (,iind   rightly   conjectured   that  Elizabeth  . L.ossing  was  at the  bottom  of  it.     He  left  sure  she  had   become  possessed  ol"  fcoine   knowledge,   which   he   had   kept  bo  well   from   others,  and   that   a-* soon  /'ns she discovered the *"nio state of matters a prosecution of 1  niseif and father  ���������would follow, with se.-ous consequences  to  both'. ,      '  ,  Consequently, he tsought out his friend  r.T;u-I: Palter or.e evening earlier than  nsnal, and surp"'sod Clio taller with the  exclamation: "The jigs up, old man, and  I guess the wedding jacket's in' the1'  bo:-p."  "hi the soup?    How's.that?"  But that girl's  Had   a   lawyer  ' from   New   York   here  looking   up' our  titles."   '  "Looking up titles!" what do you  mean. .Tim?"   '' ' <  "Why.  you   Mohegian;    seeing    what  mortgages' are     against'"   our  property, -  ���������   real estate.    Do you,ketch?"   '  Jack Salter blew a long whistle. "By  t'ura,"' he < said as the whistle failed,  "I.told you, .Tim, she had the eye of a  thoroughbred!'' '  '  "Confoundv her,   I'll   teach  her,"   said ,  ��������� Claymore.     "Now   J.ack.   we've  got   to  shape our plans in a hurry."   ' '    ,  "What are you going to do. Clear  the track' by  scoring?" " J  "Yes; and it must. ' be done to-night.  I'm going to drown,, her in the "bay!"  "But you'll not get the gold mine if  you do!"     '    ir-  "To heaven or somewhere else with  the gold mine. It'll keep us out of pen!-,  lentiary; for if she gels on to them  signatures before I can quiet her, the  ' governor and I'll both take a large contract of stone breaking." s  "Well, name your poison, and here's  lo you.    What am  I to do?"  "Do? Why we'll just follow the De-  mill ,racket right through. She'll go on  the bay all right, and you'll go with us  a^, a witness.    Do you keich?"  "All right, old man, call for nie wheu  you  are on the way.     I'll he ready any  time after six.    Till then, I'm going to  entertain   a   couple   of  chumps     at   un  limited draw."  Claymore uttered an oath when Elizabeth's letter readied him changing the  lime from 0 to 7 p.m. Things had not  been going overly well with him Jately,.  aud that change of time bothered him;  there was a iaint premonition in Lt that  I'll tlie other plans might not run any  more smoothly. But he tried to assume  an a r of gay gallantry as he and Salter  met Elizabeth at the  boat-bouse at 7.  "Mr. Salter will go with us," said  Cayrnore, I wish to make a few explanations to you which il is nbcessaiy  j or another to  substantial*".'"  '-!..'   i   n-'>-J.-'   i-r^ mak:-  Home  explanations to you   that must have quite the  i (^...osiLe (.oiiuijui:'.     Ko  Mr.   Salter,   wo  v. l.l  excuse  you  lor   the  evening,"   was  Kl.zahethY. rejoinder.  Claymore bit his lip, as Salter saun-  to;ed off like a. whipped cur. and the  former rowed Elizabeth out to one of  tho most tnlrequented parts of the bav  His sp-rits revived <-(,in(������what ���������������< he I)"-  came impressed wil'i (h-.������ know.edge that  bJie wa.s now em:;.-!/ at in.-, mercy.  "You seem to li.iv.������ Ik-cii very co'd lo  me lately," he b.g.ui, sciiicL' abl ' f>  K'.-tia.u his fuiy. "Is thai in order that  our joy may be the more in;.:ki*d when  we are i:i:irr ed ?"  "Mr. Claymore, 1 may as w������!l teli yoi'  th.-u.vyoiii-.-icij nud I will ni/wr be married, and I lake my own release in my  own .hands."  '"Indeed! that's a very cool way of  putting it. May I ask for a reason for  tills?"  . "You may, and shall receive one. *I  have discovered th it you are little short  ot' a deep-dyed  villiaui"  '���������'Indeed,! and are you not. afraid to  say this to me here when you are so  -completely  iu   my  power?"  "You a-e quite mistaken. I'm not  the least in your power;"  ,ilei- cairn, d .-passionate words took  him back a little. Aud he gazed over  the bay around him. But the absence  <������������������������ Mov craft Hear by and the' apparent  helplessness of the girl made him smile.  '"Why!" he'said cxult.ingly. "I could  upset'you and drown you in this bay  and no one would be the least wiser.  I could  say it   was  an  accident."  "Pardon me: you could do no such  thing. I had made up my mind not lo  prosecute you and your father for tin-,  unlawful things you have done to wh;;t  mamma left me, but if you do not take  me instantly  to  the  shore,   and   release  me  from  your odious presence,  I shall  repent ��������� of   my   determination."  That word "odious presence," seemed  ti.- set his blood on fire. He had never-  heard it from the lips of a woman he-  lore. In an instant he lost all his con  u-ol. and made not the faintest effort  :o command his temper. He arose like  a flash, and struck savagely at the girl's  head with an oar, hissing through his  a'eth:    "You hussy! I'll fix you now!"  Elizabeth -dodged, and the oar only  struck her a glancing blow. She was  on her feet and had drawn a revolver  1'iom her' bosom in a second. "Come,  another step towards me and I will  shoot you!',' she cried.  But he had gone too far to stop now.'  and he sprang forward to close with the  girl. ,'As he touched ber the revolver.  went off, and he felt a "sharp pain in his  shoulder. The revolver then fell into the  bay.  , ' '  They  struggled   for     a   moment,   the  girl's athletic build.perfected by a c u~ e  of college gymnastics, serving her well.  The ^liiiin seemed to be overpowering  her, but not with sufficient decisiveness  to argue that,hope for her wa.s gone.  Suddenly, as ,he, paused for breath,  weakened possibly by the, sharp, burning pain which assailed him where he  had been shot, the girl shook .herself  free from him, and deliberately, jumped  into the water. The man jumped after  her. but being, to the man's surprise,  an excellent swimmer, she soon outdistanced him, and gradually drew out  or the range of his curses.  When she was sure she was quite out  of the possibility of the man's overtaking her, she felt a desire to rest, but  knowing if she did this she would faint,  she kept swimming on, biting ,her lips  until the blood ran down her chin as  she slowly propelled herself through the  ripples. After a time a y'acht passed near  her She, called; and ��������� they heard ,her.  Very tender hands lifted her out of the,  hay to the deck of the yacht, and very'  many were the inquiries as to how she  came to'be in that perilous condition.  To the latter she turned a deaf ear, but  requested that they" would take off the  life preserver which was under her  dress, as it hurtJher side.  In the weeks and months that fol-  (lowed,Elizabeth was never fully touched  with the horror 6f her struggle for life  on the bay. , It " impressed her with  being a terrible experience.- But the horror that it would have brought to' some  lives did not settle upon her. The  struggle came'to her" suddenly, though  it was not altogether unexpected, and  she had in-a measure prepared herself  for it, but she had escaped' so easily  according'to her own guage of matters,  that the event did' not have, that blighting effect upon her physical or mental  womanhood that, might, have resulted to  other women. She absolutely refused  to say how-she came to, be in the terrible plight in .which the- yacht owners  found her, and resolutely withstood all  temptation to make a charge against  her cousin. When all preparations had  been made for her return to the morth  again .she w������ote her cousin a letter from '  which the' following paragraph is tak-m: t  "God has my thanks for preserving  my life in your hands, and to Him you  must answer, not to me. "I will repay,'  He has said, and <*o I freely forgive  you. I think He wishes me to do this,  for he has so much to forgive no doubt  in me, for I am not perfect. I leave  you, therefore, to your conscience, and  tc- the Great Judge above. I .exhort  you. however, ,to repent.' Sin and folly  may seem sweet at the time, but there  is a sting that hiteth even worse than an  adder.

The Itomans won their empire by attar-king their enemies one by one. Besides tin's, they did not attack a new  enemy until they had conquered the  old enemy They went farther still  and like the ICu^lish In conquering India used their late enemies, and this  is what we should do in learning aud  practicing games and athletics.

He began life iu' a New England  rubber factory, ar*l conscientiously worked his way up from a wage of $1.50 a  day to die'worth '$5,000,000. He was  shrewd and bright.and kuew the value, of  money, i He saved to such good purpose  that when the rubber trust was formed  ho was at the head of one of the biggest  , factories in the country, located in Providence.', His knowledge of the trade was  so thorough that, despite the fact that he  almost invariably used small "i's" in  'writing a letter, he was made president  of the trust, his holdings amounting to  about -10,000 shares. ''WhenCmatters^had  been moving along for some time'"Bannigan made up his mind that������the other  men in the trust, the big fellows, .were  not'treating him right and that the best  thing he could do was to get out. So he  packed his stock''certificates , in a gripsack, left Providence on the night boat,  landed iu New York bright and early,  had his breakfast aud then made a bee  line for a stockbroker's office." He had  assured himself in advance that this  stockbroker was to be relied'-upon, and  so he told him frankly what- he intended  to do. : .      ' ^1    '    -  "I want to sell out, bag and baggage,"  he said.   "I want'to get rid of every one  of   my  40,000  shares.     Here  they are.1'  Put them on the'market and 'sell them.",  The ' stockbroker   told,  him.-, that ;tb'at  would never do. fr If he wanted to realize  full value for his holdings, lie would have  to go about it in a different way. for it  he  should  throw  his 40.000 shares' into  the market  it would'knock .the, bottom  out of prices, and he would get little or  nothing for his stockl   Mr. Bariuigah saw  the point and asked what he ought to do. .  "Buy." said the broker.        '        ,   ,   -���������   '  "But hdon't want to buy;    I have got-  more now than I want."  "That is all'right; buy anyway; that  will make a market for the,stock, and  you can unload when the time comes.", <  "How much must I buy?"-    -'        " ',  "Oh, about $250,000 worth!"   ,  ''But I have not got $250,000 in cash  to go and buy rubber stock."  . "Well," you can borrow it.    A. man in  your position, Mr. Bannigan. will Jiave  no difficulty in borrowing $2f)0.000.!'/'  Much against his will the old man was  finally persuaded to do as he was told.  About-'two weeks'later the broker wrote  to him that he must buy some more^���������  this1 time $200,000 worth.; Mr. - Barini.-  gan used rather strong language, but  linally yielded-as before. He borrowed  $200,000 and turned it .over. With', this  additional capital to work on the broker  continued to manipulate the" market. Tho  insiders'soon discovered that some strong  party was buying, but they did not know  who. Bannigan having careful]}'- kept  himself in the background,. .His'-broker  operated skillfully in the stock, one day  buying, the next selling, to keep the  stock active. , The broker after awhile  began to borrow large .amounts of the  stock. This convinced the insiders that  there was a big short interest somewhere, and they got together in order to  squeeze the short's. The inside holders  who controlled- most of the stock com:  bined to squeeze "the shorts" out. ' In  furtherance of this plan they put the  price up to' 61, and at about that figure  Bannigan's stock was all unloaded. Bannigan now. found himself full of money,  while the.1 other, fellows were filled up  with his. stock.

For a time they will go on uier  , ti  but in the end most of them get the  worst of it. ,  , Mr. A. B. Stockwell is, a good illustration-of the truth of this..

We lighted  caudles,   braced  the doors securely and started n bit of  a fire In the open fireplace to drive oiit  the, dampness.     We had brought our  pipes/, wine and a  luncheon,   with   ar  pack' of cards to divert ourselves, and  neither  of  us  had  the  slightest  idea  of anything occurring to alarm us.   As  wo sat down fo the cards'ou'r revolvers  were laid on the table, and we laughed  and joked without restraint.    Wo had  braced" the   doors    shut   with    stoiit  boards, and our first alarm came when  one of these boards fell down and the  door swung wide open so that we could  look into tho kitchen.    The fall of tho  board looked like an accident, but there  was something curious in the way the  door swung clear back.    Both  of   us  were a bit mystified,.but we arose and  secured  the door ,again , and  went  on  with our game.   This incident happen-,  ed about 10 o'clock.** Three-quartet s of  an hour later the door leading to the  office Was tried from the far side.,   We  not only heard it creak and give, 'but  .we could ( see the brace .quiver under  the strain. There-was no" sound of footsteps or whispering.    Rising with' the  utmost   caution, "we   grasped ,our   revolvers and tiptoed to the door. .When  we reached,it,"we suddenly jerked'the  brace away and sprangJ?ack.  Tnedoor  flew back; with great violence, but there  was nobody on the other side.    We en.  tered the office with duf candles.'but'  the spiders in their webs were tne^ only-  living  inmates.     Some one (had   tried  that door.    Some one had flung it w.de  ���������open as the'brace was removed.

When the door- had been secured as  -before, we returned to our game and  spoke in "whispers and kept very qu������Jt.  After half .an hour werabandoned the  cards and sat listening.

What had attacked us we could  not say; but., whatever it was. it had  the strength of throe average men.  We went at once to tbe_ police, but  even as we told our story ,we saw a  red glare on the sky and knew that  "The Devil's Inn" was on fire. Next  day, as we visited the place with a  strong detachment of police, we found  nothing but the walls standing.

' HT- CHARLES IS." LEWIS.,  Thought He Grasped tlie I den.  In the fifth grade of a grammar  school not many miles from the  statehouse the following story was  read by the teacher aud the class told  to write it from memory: "A farmer  planted a field of corn aud placed a net  over it as a protection from the birds.  Next morning he found a number of  cranes and a stork caught in the net.  The stork begged the farmer to release him, saying. 'I am a bird of excellent character.' The farmer laughed  and said. 'You were caught in the company of these- robbers, and with rin'm  j-ou must die."  Great stress was laid upon the word  "character," the teacher explaining  that a boy, girl, or bird found id had  company showed great lack of character. The following is a copy of one  :.'0.f the papers actually produced and  handed in by nue of the pupils, a boy  of 11:..'��������� ���������   ,"..  ::"A' farmer went out in the farm one  day and he saw character and between  them was a stork.  "He caught the stork and the character.'    The   stork   begged   the  farmer  ' to set him free.    But the farmer said  you  were  in   there  company and  you  must die with them.  "The stork said he was not like, character. I am bird of freedom."���������Boston  Transcript. ,  "Charley" and "Jack."  "There was Mr. B.," said Mr. Spur-  geori; "he was a big man in his way  and seemed very anxious to make me  his friend. He was very hospitable  and generous. I was friendly and  agreeable-with him. Then he began to  call me 'Charles.' I looked at him. I  did not mind it much, but had he been  my father or brother he could scarcely  have done more. I thought ! would  let him see bow it looked, so I called  him 'John.' He did not see my purpose and so went, on to call me 'Charley.'   Then I  called him 'Jack.'    That.  QGOQQQCQQQGQGQQQQQQGQQQQQQ  We were" hunting big game in Africa  and although we had heard much from  the natives about gorillas we had been  continually disappointed iu meeting one.  The four white men of us had about ten  servants apiece, thus making up quite a  large party. < One of the black men had  lost his wife by death just before we  started from the coast. They had a son  about 10 years old, and sooner than leave  him' behind the father took upon himself  a double burden���������that is, in addition to  the pack he had to carry for us he lifted  ttie boy to his back whenever the little  fellow got tired.  We called the father "Tintop" and his  boy Joe, and we made no objections to  the lad coming along. He proved himself  to be quite hand? at building fires, gathering fuel and helping the cooks. When  we reached the lion country, plenty of  the men"showed timidity whenever they  heard the^king of beasts roaring around  our camp at night, but Joe didn't betray  the slightest fear.  The men tried to frighten0 him with  stories about big serpents and mad elephants, but they did not succeed. The  greatest trouble we had with him was to  keep him out of danger by keeping him  in camp. Whenever we started out with  out guns be wanted to follow and be present at any killing. Ou two or three occasions he ran away to follow us, and I  am going to tell you how he was cured of  this little trick.  We had discovered a herd of elephants  and sent men to drive them in a certain  direction. 1 was posted on a path alone  and was listening and waiting for one of  the elephants to come my way when I  caught sight of little Joe.  The path ran straight for a quarter of  n mile, and he came out of a thicket and  toward nie on the run. He did not know  that I was posted there, but he was using the(path in .hopes to overtake us. I  rose to my feet as* soon as ho appeared  and was about to whistle to attract his  attention and send hira back when a gorilla suddenly appeared between us.  The beast'had probably heard pur beaters and. was traveling ahead ��������� of them.  Had he known of my presence he would  not have done what lie did. Joe stopped  short in his tracks, but I don't thinK ho  was afraid. Never having seen a gorilla  before, he did not realize what a terribly  strong and savage beast he had before  him.  The gorilla looked at the boy for a minute as if wondering whether he had not  met one of his own kind, and I could  have shot him if 1 hadn't feared 10 hit  the boy.  I had ray rifle to my face when the  beast leaped forward and seized the iad  with one of his big paws, and next instant Joe was tucked under his arm and  being carried off. Tho only thing I could  do was to run clown the path and meet  the hunters and beaters and tell them  what had happened. We gave up looking  for the elephants and turned to the gorilla.    But be had a long start of us.  Joe's father was like a crazy man. and  he started off at such speed that no one  could keep up with him.    It was a vain  cftase. However, we were "in the forest,  and there was no such thing as tracking  the gorilla. Even had we got sight of  him he could easily have .outrun us or  taken refuge in a tree top. We beat the  country for ten miles around, but found  no sign of him. and the boy was given up  for lost. That night a native belonging  to the locality came to visit us, and of  course we told him about the boy and  asked if theie was any hope that we  would ever find him alive.'  "If he had been a white boy, he would  have been killed at once." replied the  man. "but as he is black the gorilla may  have spared him. I have known'them to  carry off a child to make a pet of. There  is only one fear���������when a thunderstorm  comes up, the gorillas get excited and  angry and even fly at each other. The  gorilla who carried tho boy off will take  him toJiis nest in some tree top. and as.  you continue the search tomorrow 3-ou  must keep your eye* on the trees."  When the morning came, we started  out anew, and every tree top was carefully inspected as we passed along. Noon  had come, and no trace of the boy or the  gorilla had been discovered, when a group  of the searchers suddenly came,, upon  them. They ,were both drinking at a  water hole. At the first sound of footsteps the gorilla picked up the boy and  dashed away.'but it was reported to us'  that Joe seemed to be all right. '   -  It was believed that the gorilla had a  nest within a mile of the water hole, and  now we sent all 'the, natives back to"  camp, and the four of us set out'in different directions to make a careful  search. Nothing came of it,'and when  darkness fell we were tired and in despair. Even if the gorilla should sparet  the boy's life for a week we could not see  ,how we could rescue-him. ,;Wo had a  long talk; among ourselves that nisrht.  but no one could propose any plan which  promised success. All we'could do waVto  keep on searching.       . <      \  An hour after midnight there ,was' an  alatm in camp, and what was.our sur-,  prise and satisfaction. toN see Joe, walk in  -without a scratch on him! He'.had come  back to us safe and sound, and after th������  excitement had somewhat subsided he,  told us his story. '      '���������*,'"  When .he was seized by the gorilla, he  took; the beast to be a black man. He  was carried through-the woodsat a swift  pace for two or three miles, but received  no hurt. Arriving at a great banyan  tree, the go|illav swung diimself up-with  his burden and was at home. His nest  *or house was made of broken limbs, mud  and grass and was patterned after the  huts made by the natives. ,The gorilla  "was very.curious about the boy, feeling  of his hands and feet and hair and jab-~  bering at him as if asking questions. < ' '  , 'By and by the animal went off for a  quarter of an hour, and when he returned  he had a lot of wild fruit,.which ho offered, the "boy. . He seemed so kindly dis-,  posed that Jochad no reason to be afraid.  J,ust before night ho took the boy under  his arm and "dropped to the groundi and  made his way-to the water hole. " e>'  When they returned, thoy went to bed  ���������that is, the .boy- lay.down, and'the gorilla sat up, with his back-braced against  a. limb. > Once during the night a hyena  appeared under the tree and growled and  snarled, and as Joe woke up the gorilla  leaped to the ground and pursued the  hyena into a" thicket. When morning  came, the boy was given more fruit, but  it was noon before they went off after  water. That was when they were seen  by the natives.  On being discovered 1 the gorilla seized  the boy and made straight for the nest,  and during the afternoon they lay hidden. In our search we passed under the  big tree, but the nest was so well hidden  that we did not discover it. Whenever  we could be heard moving about the gorilla was nervous and anxious and in a  temper, and he was evidently determined  ,to fight for his prize.  At dark, when we had ceased our  search, another visit was paid to the water hole, and upon letuining to the tree  the pair went to bed as on the night before. The boy was now beginning to  wonder what was to become of him, and  he lay awake for an hour or two while  he wondered how he might escape,  v He had just fallen asleep when the roar  of a lion awoke him. The lion presently  came under the tree and roared again.  This angered the gorilla, and he began  to chatter and move about; The lion was  evidently bound to pick a quarrel, for he  walked back and forth and roared defiance. The gorilla finally got.so mad  that he dropped from the tree, and the  boy said that a terrible tight took place.  As the two beasts fought they moved  away from him, and all of a sudden he  decided to try for his liberty. lie sci ambled out of the ne������t and down the tree,  and as soon as his feet touched the ground  he ran for his life. Fortunately for him,  he ran directly toward our camp and in  the course of half an hour was safe  among us.  Next morning we visited the big banyan tree and discovered the gorilla's nest,  but the animal was not at home. In looking.around we found traces of his fight  with tlie lion and'made out that it had  been a desperate battle. .We picked up  many tufts of hair, and we -found blood  on the leaves and the ground plowed and  scratched. .'.-"'  As we could not find either of the animals, dead or alive, we could not say  which had conquered, bur the gorilla had  certainly abandoned his home and the locality. We'watched his tree for three or  four days, and we also beat up the forest  for several miles around, but we did not  get sight of him again.  have mistaken it for the genuine article.
