Few  yioments.   ,  The terrible ,fer-de'-lance will   strike,  again  and again and is tbe cause of*  great mortality where lie exi.ts, causing death often in a few moments. Over,  ihe whole earth there is none to com-'  pare with him except the notorious cobra  of India.    Although not a  water  snake, he is fond of the river and flat  lands in'its vicinity, seldom being met  with* in the hills.   This denizen of the  reedy swamp and sedgy river banks is  found over the whole'-north of the South'  American  continent as well  as in tho  islands of Trinidad, St. Lucia and Martinique.  He is truly the evil genius of  the two latter, where deaths from his  bile form a high .percentage- every year.  ,    In Martinique especially it is necessary oftentimes in some districts to,*burn  the cornfields so as to  destroy theso  snakes before the negroes dare enter to  cut the canes.  On one estate thirty-seven fei'-de-I.'iiiccs were killed on" a piece  of ground containing eleven' acres.  , Of  a  dull   yellowish  or 'clay  tinted  ground color, he is ringed with irregular, blackish .balids, .narrowing' toward  the  back  and  broadening  downward.  This  arrangement  of  coloring  makes  him ' extremely difficult to discern  on  the flat alluvial lands where tho sun  baked clay, mixed with the blackened  color of sticks.rotten akd water'soaked,  makes a carpet of a color with his coat.  He is from five Vo seven feet in length,  as thick' as a man's wrist, with a flat  triangular head.

For example, when the day Is to be  fine the leech will remain at the bottom of then glass, coiled up' in spiral  shape and quite motionless. If rain  may be expected, it will creep to the  top of the glass and stay there until it  , clears off.  '    If the leech twists itself and is very  restless, there is going to be a wind-  . storm. If it .keeps out of the water for  several days, loolc. out for a thunderstorm. *. ( , ' > ,  The Indications for frosty weather  are the same as for fine, ancl for snow  the same as for rain. In fact, a leech is  .almost, as   good-'a   forecaster   as   the  weather man himself.    '/    , .   ' ,  A  Coined j-  of  Error*. .  When .Baron 'llai.ssma.nu ,-went *.to  Constanth-splo. On a visit to Alfdul Aziz,  who was tken sullan, he had\an' interview with tne grand vizier, Svtip did not  know a word of French. At the beginning of the interview the old long Turkish pipes were brought in, and then  Baron Haussmann began making a  very long speech in French. The grand  vizier could not understand a word, but  listened most attentively till he noticed  that his pipe had gone out and clapped  his ha.nd for a servant to come and relight ib. Ha'ussAann, thinking, he was  applauding, rushed toward him with  outstretched hand, intending to shake  hands and thank him. The grand vizier,  seeing his hand put forth, shook it  warmly and said "Goodby." under the  impression it was Haussmann's intention to leave, and quitted the room.  Tlie "Eur of.

The smaller  chamber was unknown to'the prisoners  kept in this underground dungeon, and  tho tyrant by whose name it is known  had a habit of secreting himself there  to listen to the conversation of the convicts, who ware 'mostly political offenders.

I knew it*  ,_   from  her actions, ��������� and  three  months*  , after I left the house she was caught  ' -   In a * similar offense and owned up' to  the' first theft. *   However,  the ��������� crime  ���������"   was  laid. o_*' on  me, ' andr because  I  - made   Indignant- and   perhaps , irhpu-'  '* dent protest I, was flung ,out of .the  house at.half an hour's notice and refused a character.    I was Idle for the  ' next three months. ��������� The, first thing, de-  "' manded  when  I  applied  for a  place >  was a character."    As soon as it ,was  learned that I had none'it was'useless  to talk further.' It was'for this reason  " that Ii finally paid a fee to an Intelli-  '    gence office in Margate street and was "'  at length sent for^to take a place at  general   housework.     It   was   an   old  man .named, Dyson who wanted me.  He was willing to take me without a  character because he would, have to  'f   ,Pa7, less wages  and  because,   as  he  'grimly   asserted, ' there ,was   nothing  lying around loose in his house for one  -*i  to steal.    As we  sat face to  face  I  /sized him up as mean and penurious,  but I! did not see' any evil in him.   He  -' had an aged and infirm wife, he told  '   -me,.and I would Be the .only servant;  It was not for me'to, pick and choose.  I must have'a place; and hold it long  .-..enough to, "get a (character ��������� again.    I,  Went with .him miles and miles out on  -,   the Holborne road; and we at last ar-'  .rived at, the cheaply .built and c_eai>  T looking cottage he', occupied.   It was a  place.devoid btalmost all conveniences,  - and had 'been "selected * for. Its cheap  L   rent.   I found tbe oldwife dea������ alrnost  .blind and palsied, and It was apparent  ._ -tiiat she had no care whatever,- She had <  ;,.; .become* childish, ���������hd petulant, -and --be-  '���������"fore'I had-been ii).tbe house'half an  hour Mr. Dyson whipped  her with a  - strap for saying that she was hungry.  Ashe whipped her I saw him look at  hor in a.way to give me a chill. In the  course of three or four days I made up  my mind that he. regarded her with detestation and abhorrence and was hourly hoping for h.r death. I wondered  that he had not pushed her down stairs  or found"other means to bring about an  "accidental" death, but the old man  was full ,of craft and cowardice. * I  .   sooy had evidence that be 'jvas in love  with a widow In the neighborhood, or  at least he desired to be free so that he  ,   could marry her.   The man had no occupation  and   seldom  left  the  house.  During my first two weeks In the place  he never allowed me to see the wife  except in his presence and found fault  If I cooked anything extra for her or  expressed  my .sympathy.     He  had  a  way of whispering to himself, and a  dozen times over I heard him say:  "I've  waited  for  five  years,   but. I  ���������  woD't wait much longer.   I'll get rid of  her and be happy."  My natural  Impulse on finding out  how he felt toward his wife was. to fly  the house, but I have explained how I  was situated.   And, too, I soon got the  feeling that I ought to stay to protect  the poor old woman.    I figured It out  that,  while  he   might  thirst  for   her  death,   he  would   not proceed  to  extremities while I was In the house.   It  seemed as If he would have lived on  alone, as ho had done for the last two  months,  if he  meditated  anything of  that sort.   I didn't know the depth of  his craft, however.    He had  brought  me there to work  her death through  me(   The first thing I suspicioned this '  ,way was one morning when'he asked  me to help her down stairs.   The stairs  were steep and shaky, and he had pried  one of the. steps loose, that it might  slide from under our feet.    As a matter of  fact,   it  did   give, way,   but  I  caught myself and saved the woman.  When old Dyson "sawthe failure of his  plot, he looked chagrined and*'savage,  and presently found excuse for cuffing  the-.-poor-wife's:ears.  In the course of a couple of weeks  he declared that the cellar was full of  rats and gave me money and commanded me to buy arsenic. He recommended tne to go to a store miles away  and to say that I wanted it for my  complexion and to give my own name.  I went to a drug store only two.blocks  away and gave bis name, and when  he discovered this he was highly Indignant, for'a day, and I rather expected to be thrown out   However, In the  course of three or tour clays he developed another plan. After coaching the  old wife he left me alone with her for  the first time, a'nd she begged me to  get ber-6ome laudanum.'for; toothache  and not.mention the matter to bim.. It  was easy to tell that she had been  coached what to say, "and I refused to  buy,the drtfg. -A few days later, as I  w*s preparing her a soup, I had to  leave the kitchen for a minute. When  I -returned, the soup was giving out a  strange odor, and., being satisfied that  the husband had poisoned it. I of  course threw it away. He, scalded  about my waste, but when I looked  him square in the. eyes .he dropped his  ' and had no more to say.  I   had   been   with   the   Dysons   five  weeks when the climax came.   The old  woman  was - holding her own,  if not  getting better, and the husband- impatience had a savage edge to it.  Their  bedroom was" on the north side of the  house.  '-All along on that side was a  deep excavation for a factory, and the  cellar was full of stones and water.  From   the  bedroom  window  the   distance to the cellar bottom was all of 30  feet." I slept on tbe west side, with ,two  rooms and two doors bottveen' us, but  so poorly built was tha house that if  voices  were   raised above  a  whisper  they could be heard, and there were  also many cracks and crevices to peer  through.   At 10 o'clock one night I lay  wondering if he really meant to* take  her life and how he would finally ac-, [  complish it when I heard a half SUP7'  pressed scream from his room.    I got  softly out of .bed and went to the farther door, and, looking through a crack,  I saw that The window, was up and that  he 'stood before it with his wife in his  arms.    She   was , hanging  on to'him  with  fingers   of   steel  and   making, a  great'struggle. ' I-heard.him breathing  heavily,and snarling and growling as  he tore her fingers loose, but Fdid not  know" what he'planned to do till of a  sudden he staggered to the" ,6pen window aud ,flung her out., She screamed  as she went to her death, and in my  fright   I   echoed   the   scream.     I   remember  the  man  rushing across the  room at me, of his dashing open the  door, of his striking me-down,<and't_en-  came darkness which lasted for weeks.  He struck me with a piece of iron and  fractured my skull.    He then carried  ray body  down  stairs fand bore' It_a  quarter of a  mile away/'and flung" it  into'another excavation.    Before taking me from the house he put on my  hat and cloak, and,thus it appeared .to  those who*found' niy unconscious body  next'morning that I had been coming  home the night before and, fallen into  the pit.    As to his,wife, hergave tbe  alarm and brought the police and made  out- ^bat,' It > was   a '.case, of   suicide.  While he was fast asleep,'as he "claimed, she had stolen to the window, and  ' leaped to her death."      " " . '    "  His story' went.' and it was -seven  -months before there was any contradiction.' I had a fractured skull, brain  ^ fever, and pneumonia .and- for'Syeeka'*  "and weeks'lay as one dead.'- W_en,<-I  mended, my memory w;as confused,  and it was seven months before I told  my ��������� story and put the police on the  track. Long before that Dyson had  married the widow and sailed for  America, and, though efforts xrcro  made to find him, nothing came of  them. Never did a man deserve tho  hangman's rope more, and yet, if living today, he is free and has no fear  of the Jaw.       v       ....-���������. ,,"**.  of his mouth in quick-succession, producing a thrilling impression on the audience, i There is' music in his voice,-  there Is magic In his eye, and he is one  of the sweet charmers of the congress  ���������company."'

'Stood  on  HI* D-srnitr.  A few years ago John Best, the eminent organist, a very dignified man,  was present at a great public dinner at  Liverpool, and it was understood that  he would contribute a short organ recital to the harmony of the evening.  "The organ will now play," was tbe  curt style In'which the mayor, who  was in the chair, chose to announce the  performance, and Mr. Best sat still in  his place, taking no notice whatever of  the observation. -The isayor repeated  the words in a louder tone of voice,  and still the great musician made no  sign.  A waiter came and whispered to Mr.  Best:* "Didn't you hear his worship,  sir? The organ will now play." Mr.  Best merely looked up with a surprised  and injured air. "Confound the organ!" he said.   "Let it play!"  The message was duly conveyed to  the mayor, and then tbe mayor rose  again. "Our distinguished fellow  townsman, Mr. Best." he said, "will  now very kindly oblige us with a selection of music on the organ."-"Then and  not before Mr. Best arose and entertained the company.

Its  meaning is so vague-and undetermined'for the most part that even the  conservative take"ft upon their lips  without trepidation. They speak indulgently of socialists asiorratic and  harmless dreamers, '���������lumping together  their many ' dillerent aims and  creeds, much as one speaks of all  manner of insects as  "bugs."  But 'the truth Is that every  one is  something  of  a socialist,   and  many-  of our institutions are purely socialistic. Free schools,  for instance,  -and  free libraries   (where they  really   belong    /to  a township   of free people  ancl areinot the gift of well meaning  but offensive and misguided afliuence)  are purely socialistic.   ,.They exist for;  tho good of.all,and are supported by  the contributions of all, though there  may be some to whom they are of no  value  and   by "whom   they' are     'not  wanted.     Never, mind,  we must-ihave  them,'for  the sense" of the community has decided they are good things.  If  you havo no   children -to   be  educated'and are a hater of"books, it is  just, the same".     You must put   your  hand in your pocket to* buy books for  your neighbor   and  educate, his  children.    That surely is pure socialism.  Also it is pure Christianity.    '"  -- A*ud that brings me 'io the point X  wish to make���������-namely, that*, the, souL  ,of socialism is love, or Christianity,  if you prefer that word..  The divers  kinds of socialism arc as' mushrooms,,  in   the1 morning.     They   spring-'   up  fresh every day, until' it seems    that'  every ,man may  be his own' prophet"  in  matters   pertaining    to  the    commonwealth.      Yet,all   these'schemes  are  alike  in, aim;  they  all  have    for  their, sole  object  the   betterment     of  society.       However   foolish, however  wrong headed, however visionary   or  even      dangerous    ' they may be,   we  must still credit them nearly always  with, nobility of purpose and sinccr^  i(y of intention.*    They are so many'  formulas,Jior the solution of a dimV  cult, problem in   the science   of    life,*  and,though many of them,would not  ���������olve  the  perplexing  equation  for us  at "all,  but  would-only  make    matters  worse .(in  all probability), -still  their' disinterested   aim'must     onlist  our' sympathy   even, while _- we   with-.  hold   our approval.     That is to say  the spirit that prompts' then, is   all -  right, - though, the thought * that- goes ���������  to their construction is often so faulty. .  l - *    < ������  For socialism in whatever form is,'  after1 all," only an ingenious device'for  putting in practice the generous impulses of the^human heart. Socialistic schemes are just so many contrivances for the carrying out of our  nobler purposes. -In themselves they  cannot directly foster goodness:; they'  can only promote it by making its  path easier. Under right social and  industrial conditions it will be cas-  -ier to be good than it is now;; it will  be easier for beauty to touch our everyday life; it will be easier for the  truth to find us out and cheer us  with  illumination.   1  One would not call the constitution  of the United States a socialist document, I suppose, and yet it certainly is an instrument invented to facilitate the  betterment  of mankind    in  its  social  state-.     The  American Re-  volution,  like the French revolution,  like the great  rebellion  in  "England,  has no other meaning than that, and  tho mistake  we make  in thinking of  theso  movements   is   in   putting    our  final trust in them.rather than in the  spirit   of freedom    and    love  in  man  which     produced,' them.'     However  great      and      important  these events  wore,   they   wen*,   after   all,   only    so  many  steps  in 'this direction  or that.  We belie.e     in      ihis   country that a  democratic   form   of  government       is  better      than'     older, more primith'e  forms.     It   is not  therefore  necessarily, the best   form.     It may  be itself  but. a  step  to  another form still better "which   will    bring    us still     more  e ilightcnmcnt      and  happiness.      Wc  must be careful not to make a fetich  of  it,   as  our   fathers  made  of .monarchy   long ago.     It is  the  tendency  of conservative minds to respect    the  settled     institution,    the traditional  ideal.      Old     institutions and -established ideals aro indeed to be respect-  ed; but they are not as much to   be  respected as the     spirit of humanity  which   begot   them.     They  are     only  inventions  of the  mind   of  man  pondering  oh some    -plan  to give ,   his  soul  vent in free  and beneficent    action. '. It.  is    our business to- maintain and guard them only so long as  they  prove   effective  for  that   and to  relinquish  them  without., regret      as  soon   as   we   outgrow  them  and  find  them  hindering  our' progress    or  retarding  our      happiness.     VJe     shall  have  others: in  their stead more ample, more adequate,  more nearly perfect   and' no   less   worthy   of  loyalty  than  they were.  'And if we-are not to have too great  and inflexible a respect for authority .and traditional institutions neither must we be overconfident of the  newest plans of social management  of our own devising. They," too,  we. must remember, are only methods  or ways of doing things. And the  great   permanent   fact, to   be  remem  bered   and reverenced is'the spirit of  lovo which prompted-us huirian creatures from the first. , If we are to re-  spect  the   remembrance     of   ' it      in  those   of past  ages,' surely  we  must  so much more respect it as a living  breath   in   ourselves.  '   No form of government ever yet devised   has  been, equal  to   the task  of,  making men perfectly happy. '    None  ever  will  be,   for    the  simple reason  that men -are not happy by putward  conditions alone, 'but by the inward,  condition     of, their hearts . as  well.  And  if we pin  our  .aith  to-this    -or.  that   outward   social' institution    we  nre     n'ecessarilv'   disappointed.    The .  moro stable the institution 'the more1  quickly does it become insuflicienl. It  remains  fixed,   but   man   grows. '  Let  us fancy    that, some very a'dinirable  ��������� and   sound .social 'reform,"like  '   the  single 'tax,' -for  instance,     could    , be  put    iu     operation.-.

In    the     same  period     agricultui-al     cxpoits      have  doubled.   The tremendous energy and  success of the Canadian  workers . are  indicated in the fact that deposits in  savings banks have doubled     in   four  years.  .

There  is ^trouble in . the Liberal  . cam|.,   Mr Joseph Martin,  M P.P.,  is to'be ousted from  the leader-ship  o   Lhe party, to which  he  was unanimously elected, and Mr Ralph  Smith, who will  resign  his seat in  the Dominion House, chosen as hi-  successor.     It appears   that  some  prominent Vancouver Liberals are  of opinion that it is utterly impossible   lor  the   Liberals  under   Mr  Martin to cairy Bri'.ii-h  Columbia  atsthe coming general election, and  '  they   suggest   that   Mr   R.   Smith  would leave the Dominion House  at tlie call of the B.C. Convention.  He would prove a leader acceptable  to all factions, and insure the success of the Liberal pai ty.    M r M ar-  tin   has given   his   viev\s   on   the  subject of a chainje of leadeiship to  an interviewer for publication, and  is of opinion that the intended move  was  inspired   from   Ottawa.     He  ; thinks that Mr Ralph   Smith has  long   entertained   the  ambition   of  leading the B.C. Liberals; and if he  -were offered the position   he. would  jump at the chunc-; but 'he Li* er  als'in "Vancouver will be'' u.isioken  if   theyinmginc   that he can  pull  them out of a hole. Mr Martiusays  it   is   quite  clear that a  clique of  Liberals  in Vancouver,  whom   he  denominates the'. - grafter crowd,"  and^ who are ih politics for the purpose of  lining  their  pockets,. have  determined to substitute Mr Smith  for   him   in   tbe "leadership of   the  Liberal   party.     H>   would  much  prefer to see   l*a decent, lespectable  Conservative party in power in this  Province   than   lo spe  the  Liberal  p irsy in the as-endancy donitnated  b/ the boodle element, which be is  ...hamed  to say it-  cim-ain.- wiihin  its borders."   There is a well-founded'rumour afioas that a well known  A few days ago while one of, the  "tramp" steamers waVloading coal  at Union Wharf, the'Captain ex-  press-ed^ a desire, to see 'the coke  ovens, hinci' requested.^ one of the  genial and obliging young ladies at  the Wharf to'-show him '-round.  While the men weie at wojk-draw-  ing the cok������. and recharging theT  ovens, iiml as business is never  "rushing"'so fast at th*- Wharf thafr  our obliging young ladies couid not  find time to show sucli an" amiable  fellow as the cap\ain in question  around,' she g acefuily consented to  trie propo.-ed excursion, 'lhe Cap-,  tain was naturally very much -interested in. the many sights which  v\'e:e seen, and especially to as the  va ion si ��������� processes through _j,vhich  the coai pasted fvnn the time it\v>as  du<j fri.-in th'e min.s, un i.  *t   each-  O i \ *  edthe tiiUshi.fg.p.oce.- in the coke  'ovens- was   being described "by the  fair guide in   a 'most, eloquent/and .  enter-aini'.g manner. ' As they ;-.p:  proached an oven which was near.^  ready to be .'drawn'' the fair guide  remarked   "Now, Captain,   look at  that' oven   and   you   will   see how  much cleaner and whitei the flaine  rising from the coke is than in the,  last oven we looked at.  That i*- how  the coke burns when it is re.dy for  di awing."      At   this   juncture   the  captain'inadvertently allowed  the  end of his fine silk umbrella to come  in contac   with  the burning cuke,  and in an instant it was in flames.  So sudden did this oc-ur that for a  moment the captain scarcely realized the gravity of the position, aud  when'_e attempted to  put  out, the  fire he was in immineut. danger of  being    seiiously   injured     by   the  flames taking hold of  his cioihing.-  Tne'fair guide seeing that the case  demanded  quick and  heroic effort  ran to the neatest hydrant where a  ho-e  w-is  attached, turned   on   the  water and directed the nozzle of the  hose towards the captain. The rush  of water being very strong, and entirely unexpected on   tne captain's  part, he-w.as thrown off his feet on  to a pile of coke.-   The fire having  been exinguished,   and a number  of the coke burners having  arrived  on ihe scene, attracted by the cries  of Fire! Fire! Help! &'c, "Emma".-  nating from the guide. They raised  the captain fipm his perilous position, and finding that beyond a few  bruises and scratches, there was  -no more "serious damnge done thau  the, price'of a* new suit of clothes,  and, say $5 for an umbrella, tbey  could not restrain , themselves from"  giving .three cheers for the heroic  guide.-  Wnen the vessel was ready for  sea the captain was -sufficiently- recovered to be on the bridge with the,  , pilot,' as she was being backed out  from the Wharf, and it is' hoped  that the Southern California sun aud  warm climate will speedily? restore  the --gallant captain'to his u-uial  health.'  v It is needless to say that .the*,  young lady was'the recipient of the  captain's most grateful thanks for  magnificent heroism and presence  of mind disp.ayed under'such  try-  IMS-HIT  4AGA_51'������������������ ' GA SH  . _ TORE:    -_ ���������  'Cu_Mand.'B;C.  o  Bruges  Air   Dry  System..
