When the famous feud between tho Hatfield   and   McCoy families,   which   cost  ' many  lives in  the mountain country of  : "West; Virginia and Kentucky, was declared at an end in, April, 1897,"tho  families  ' of old Randolph McCoy and tho descendants of old Deacon IDIlison Hatfield, led  by tho notorious "Devil  Anso," gathered  I on  the  banks of the Big Sandy river to  sanction tho wedding of Mary McCoy and  young Aaron Hatfield.   There aro rumors  ''  now,.says, tho  Now York  Sim, that this  ..peace protocol is over and talk of a fresh  '   outbreak.    Whether there is any ground  , for tho belief that the feud is to bo rcopon-  ,ed it is'hard to toll, for fighting, nr.c miking, is what,both families ongago in when  ��������� tho ill feeling comes to tho top and there  aro scores to bo settlod.  '" Four times the, Hatfields and tho Mc-  -Coys gathered to dcclaro off tho feud that  mis bee:! passed down through fchroo generations, and three times out of tho four  blood was shed before tho negotiations  were concluded.. Moonshine whisky,which  both .families make and drink in largo  .quantities, has boon responsible mainly  for the breaking of theso compacts, and if  the families go at each othor again it will  probably be bocau&o of the ovil effects of  ihe product cf the illicit distiliorios in tho  West Virginia mountains. It is almost in-  ..orediblo that such a fond could start up  .again' and continue with Ihcsamo freedom  *'t,hat it did 20 years ago, Nit it is possible,  , for tho authorities of that si.-ito aro as  ���������powerless  to  stop  it  today af=  they were  'yonrs ago, when Parish and Sam McCoy  shot and killed young Hill Siayton from  nmbu:-h, thereby shedding the (irsfc Wood  of the feud.  ��������� ��������� The picture that, ncrnmpanics this story  -   is p.'ii'tiaulai'ly interesting for two reasons  ���������first, it is the only group picture over  taken of tho Hatflelds and tho only picture  ever taken of any of tho. loaders'of that;  Mamiiy'with thsiv consent; secondly, having been taken In times of peace, it illustrates tho caution with which these outlaws are observing tho truce. There aro  four revolver's and four rifles in night.  How many small weapons thore arc in  concealment it is impossible to tell, but  the reader can bo pretty certain that; Mrs.  ������������������Devil 'Anso" and Mrs. "Cap," in the  background and the two youngsters in  the foreground are as veil prepared for  emergencies as their relatives. It was only a shore time after this picture was taken that, one of thoso youngsters tried to  murder a deputy sheriff who had cornered  his father, "Cap" Hatfield, who was a fugitive from justice, having escaped from  the jail at Williamson. Tho youngster  oamo pretty near succeeding In Ms purpose.  ��������� After "Cap" Hatfield escaped from jail  in -Tijlrr    ISO"   1>������ -m������l<2������ fn������ ' '1 '>;'v"Li AliS^'i?"  old homo on Tug river, near tho mouth of  Peter crook, where ho was joined by tho  others who are shown in the picture.  Some 15 miles awaj', at a small settlement, n photographor had set up an establishment, and he drove out to tho Tug  rivor cabin to got a picture of tho Hatfields. The Hatliolds received him decently enough, but refused to allow him to  tako a picture at first. "Cap" was particularly vehemont in his objections, but  "Devil Anso" was good natured about tho  matter. Ho know that ho and "Cap" and  other members of tho family had had  cameras snapped at them during visits to  West Virginia towns time and again, and  ho finally got tho wholo crowd together  and told tho photographer to firo away.  The result; was the picture here shown.  Tho photographer took tho plate away,  promising to send back a sot of the pictures. Tho next day "Cap" Hatfiold was  in an ugly mood. He cursed "Devil  Anse," himself and ovcrybody else for sitting for a photograph, particularly at a  time when officers were on his track, and,  armed to the teeth, he set out for tho settlement to do things to tho photographer  and his outfit. Now, of all the Hatflelds  "Cap" is the most reckless and murder  ous. He, more than any other member of  tho family, with the possiblo oxcoption oi  Ellison Mounts, is responsible for tho kill  ing and maltreating of women in tho feud  now supposed to bo closed, and - ho is a  scoundrel without morals or mercy. Killing is his pleasure, and thore is no doubt,  in tho world that ho would have murdered  that photographer if he'd ,cver caught  him.  But "Devil Anso" looked out for that  With Elias, Tray and Joe ho headed "Gap'   I  off and sent him back to tho cabin.    All j  JIatfields   havo   a   way   of   doing   what |  "Devil Anse" tells^them  to do, and even i  tho bloodthirsty "Cap" is subservient to j  him.     The old man  told "Cap" that, he'd  sec that none of tho pictures was printed,  aud with his three younger sons he sec out  to keep his word. <  Tho photographer declared on his solemn oath that ho had sent tho plate away  to be developed. He was lying when ho  said it, and it was a good thing for him  that it was "Devil Anse" and not "Cap"  that ho tried to fool. Anso and his boys  found tho plate and destroyed it. Then,  as a lesson to tho photographor, they  smashed his cameras and wrecked his entire establishment. Then they went back  to the cabin on Tug river. Bat the photographer had struck off a proof before  "Devil Anso" arrived.  Although the McCoys shed the (lr.se blood  in tho famous feud, tho history of the  affair shows no such atrocities credited to  them as to tho Hatflelds. Anything more  horrible than the revenge of " Devil Anso''  and his sons for the murder of old Deacon  Ellison Hatfield could not. bo imagined.  The murder of Miss Allaphare McCoy by  Ellison Mounts, who only committed tho  deed because he was quicker with his gun  than "Cap" Platfielu, was tho most; dastardly crime of the whoio foud and roused  the'wholo country at tho time. The McCoys have shot and killed, too, but there  aro no such terrible nrimos against them  as against tho Hatflelds, unless it bo tho  murdor of Deacon Ellison Hatfield, who  was stabbed 27 times in a clasp knife duel  with Talbot McCoy, and was boating his  man when Farmer McCoy shot him in the  back. And theso two bowhiskercd individuals in the picture, who would look  like poacefnl mountain farmers if it was  not for their woapons, havo been tho chief  actors in tho crimes ol tho Hatfields. Deacon Ellison was always a peacemaker up  to tho time of that fight with Talbot McCoy.  In the language of a writer who has  compiled some interesting facts about the  foud, "Tho trouble all began over two  long nosed, razorbacked, elm peeler  hogs!" Old Randolph McCoy lived on  Pond crcok, in Pike county, Evy., and  Deacon Ellison, "Devil Ansa" and the  rest of tho Hatflelds on the Logira county  side of Tug river, West Virginia. Floyd  Hatfield, a brother of "Devi; Anso," lived  in Kentucky near Randolph McCoy. The  McCoys accused ITloyd. Hatfield of stealing  these two hog.?, and the case came up for  trial before Matthew Hatfield, who was a  justice of the peace. Floyd Hatfield won  tho case and the hogs because ho had tho  best witnesses.  Floyd's principal witness was old Bill  Stayton, his brother in-law. Stayton,  with his son, young Bill, and several of  the Hafcflelds were fishing in Tu������- ���������vet  shortly after the trial when Randolph McCoy and two of his sons came along. R;m-  d/iliih oOTfi^ ������ua Afca to <ij2gg,~*'>" "'"^  finally called old" man Stayton a perjuror,  whereupon young Bill, who %vas only 18  years old, hit Randolph  on the head with  an outlaw in   Kentucky at thia time, and  ho  opened  up  the  bad   feeling again by  ruining   Roso Ann   McCoy, a daughter of  Randolph McCoy.  Then when Talbot; and  Farmer  McCoy took  advantage  of  tlssir  sister's  intimacy with   Jonco   Hatfield to  follow her  to tho outlaw's lair and arrest,  him   in  order  to  get tho rewards offered  for h'is  capture  thero was more  trouble  "Devil Anso," "Cap" and the rest of  the  Hatflelds, warned   by Roso  Ann, rescued  Jonco  from   the  McCoys, but tho feeling  was  not allayed, and  there would  have"  been   a  heap  of  killing but  for  another  election   in which both families happened  to   bo  intsrostod  in the  same candidate.  Tho  candidate was  Thomas  Stafford,   a  blood relation of tho Hatfields and related  by marriage  to  tho McCoys, and oh that  election   day tho  families declared  peace  once  more and sont down  for buckets of  moonshine in which to seal tho compact.  It was on that day that Deacon Ellison  was murdered, and only a few days later  that "Devil Anse" and his sons took their ���������  revenge, that revenge being the most fearful tragedy of tho feud. Tho McCoys and  Hatfields drank moonshine to each other  until they got to feeling ugly. Then Talbot McCoy,remembered that young Elias,  who is No. 3 in tho picture, had once borrowed $1.75 from him and had failed to  return it.. Elias, who was a more boy  then, called Talbot a Har. and Talbot  started to beat him. The sight of great,  burly Talbot McCoy boating littlo Elias  Hatfield was ,more than peaceful Don con  Ellison could stand. He drew a revolver,  and with Elias Hatfield,'tho youngster's  uncle, wont for Talbot. , Farmer McCoy  drow a pistol, and two constables, seeing  rroublo ahead, arrested Talbot and young  Elias for fighting. All might have bcou  well but for Deacon Ellison Hatfield. Too  frequent indulgence in moonshine had  changed him .from a peacemaker to a trouble maker, ant! he douounced all tho McCoys as scoundrels for protending to make  peace when they were really looking for  fight. Ho called Talbot McCoy a coward  for pitching into a boy and made a lunge  at him with his knifo. The constable who'  was holding McCoy lot him go, and Talbot drew a knife, while tho members of  both families made' a ring for tho two  moii to fight it out. ���������  Talbot McCoy sprang at tho deacon and  plunged his knife into his side. Tho deacon cut open his opponent's head, and then  tho men fell apart. Ellison accidentally  cut his own hand, aud dropping his knife  he sailed into McCoy with his fists. Talbot stabbed him 26 times, and then slip,-  ped and "fell, with Deacon Ellison on top  of him. Tho deacon grabbed a heavy  stone, and in another moment would have  crushed ' McCoy's head to, a jelly, but at  that moment Farmer McCoy shot him in  the back, and ,thcn dropping his revolver  ran up the road.  ��������� Thon the constables asserted themselves,  placing Farmer, w,ho had been captured  by Elias Hatfiold an/1 Talbot, under arrest.  They also arrested Randolph McCoy, Jr.,  a mere boy, who was accused^ of stabbing  Deacon Ellison in tho legs during tho-  fight. The,prisoners w,ero taken to John  Hatficld'rf house, whilo tho wounded man  was taken care tof by a neighbor. , The  news of tho shooting of Deacon Hatfiold  brought a dozen Hatfields to John Hat;  field's house, but tho McCoys disappeared  and made no attempt to rosctio the prisoners.  Tho next day, while tho constables were  taking the prisoners to the Pikesvillo jail,  they were met by "Devil Anso" and a lot  of other Hatfields, who ordered the constables to tako the prisoners to Blackberry  creek. On tho way there "Devil Anse''  took tho prisoners away from tho constables, tied them together with ropes and  drovo them into West Virginia, where they  wore placed in a schoolhouse for safo keeping.  Thero "Devil Anso" told  the prisoners  OLD CIRCUS DAYS.  STORIES OF THE SAWDUST KNIGHT?  OF THE SOUTH.  Tlie Tluaisey Boys and Ilb"sv TJielr  Fenst V/as Tux-netl Into Monrsiingr.

It is  usually when Colonel Johnny Wilson is  in a pleasant  mood   that' memories  of  the times when   John   Lowlovv was  in  .his prime are stirred up.    Lowlow was'  the .Robinson  clown   and   used to yell,  "Fetch'ou  another boss!"   Aside from  General Jackson himself John Robinson  was probably the most popular man below Mason and JDixon's  lino.    Wilson  was a kid, but a limber article at that,  and was usedo to  good  advantage occasionally ns a "fill in," when some higfc  piiced performer left the circus abruptly.   Ho could do abont everything from  n bareback ride, to tho trapeze turn aud  was indispensable.  An organization was formod among  the circus men who- followed   tho  fortunes of old John Robinson.    Tho name  of tho combine was tho "Hunkey Boys. "  'it got, to be very popular, nud  its numbers  swelled  from a few toa considerable uumbor.   Tbo Hunkey Boys  oven  went so f;ii' as to buy gold badges, with  tbo insignia of their lodge upon it.   On-  bno  trip  down   the  "Massassippy" it  was decided to have a banquet after the  night  performance  on   a. little   island  about 800 yards from ihe tents.    It was  purely a  Hunkey   Boy affair, and   two  J ergo caldrons wero  takon over to tho  sceno   of  tho festivity, in whicii  were  made a gigantic stew.    Wilson and another boy procured n largo bag of asnfe-  titla, swum the rivor, dumped the stuff  into tho,caldrons and swam back whilo  the Hunkey Boys were,still at work. It  DAMP AND TOOSH WHEAT.

A few months la tor Parish and  Sam McCoy murdered young Bill from  ambush, but they wero acquitted in a  Kentucky court. Tho Hatfields wero getting ready to do some killing themselves,  when election day rolled around, and the  two families, being interested in the same  candidate, patched up a peace which was  kept for several years.  Johnson Hatfield, known ag Jonco, waa  that if Deacon Elli.son died of his injuries  they would be put to death. A lot. of she  McCoy women folks came and pleaded for  mercy, but "Devil Anso" drovo them all  away. Tho prisoners suffered torfctiro  whilo in tho schoolhouse, for the ropes  that bound shorn wero on so tight that tho  blood could not circulate.  When tho news of Deacon Hatfield's  death was brought to i:Devil Anse," ho  conveyed It to the prisoners, and they  broke down and wept. That night the  Hatfields drove them down tho road, still'  bound with ropes, and over tho lino into  Kentucky. Farmer McCoy, who had  fainted, was restored to consciousness', and  thon the march was resumed until tho spot  selected by "Devil Anse" was reached.

Talbot McCoy, who had asked to bo allowed  to face his executioners, was turned tho  other way, while Farmer was mado to look  into tho weapons of his murdorers. The  boy Randolph was tied facing tho others,  and then ''Devil Anso" yelled to Wall  Hatfield that all was ready and that ho  was to give tho word when to fire.  "Tako aim! Fire!" yolled Wall, and  every man discharged his weapon. Talbot and Farmer were killed instantly. No  shot was fired at the boy. Hi3 punishment was to see bis relatives die.  After tho shooting tho Hatliolds started  back for West Virginia, but they hadn't  gone far when ono of thorn objected to  leaving tho boy Randolph alivo. It was  dangerous, ho said, as the boy know over;/  ono of them and might send them all to  tho gallows.  "Go back, then," said "Dovil Anse.'  And this man went back and blew the top  of the lad's head off with a shotgun. Back  in West Virginia "Devil Anso" gathered  his men around hira and mado them all  swear a solomn oath never to reveal the  night's doings under penalty of cloath.  Tho most remarkable thing about the  feud as it stands today is tiie unwillingness of the West Virginia authorities to  punish any of the Hatfields for their  crimes, fearing to reopen'tho feud.

Wilson  had hardly reached the top of  the pole  when he heard  an   agonized voice, and c  looking  down ' saw .Robinson with   the  polo in his stomach.  "Come down I" yelled Itobinsou in  pain, but just aa John turned to do so.  he got the pole back in the belt and  cried out. "Stay up!" Then Wilson began to do a few tricks, when again  camo a gasping voice, "Come down!"  He saw that the pole was burrowing  inio Board's stomach again, and hastened to obey, but before he conld get down  Robinson lost his balance and overwent  the pole, throwing Wilson over into the  audience. lie fell with such force that  ho went clear through the seats, and a  select party of social favorites accompanied him to the ground below.���������Cincinnati Enquirer.

Capt  Brokenshiro, the subject of   this article  is 'Ai years of   age, is well-known  and  highly respscted  throughout many  ol  the   leading   cities and ��������� towns of Ontario,  where,   during   his seven  year?  servica in Salvation Army work he has-  come in contact with a large number ol  people.    He has been  stationed at Toronto,    Montreal,,    Peterboro,   Ottawa,  Morrisbtirg and.  minor   places,   and at  one time was a member of a travelling  S.!A.- string  band.    The following "is  Capt. Brokenshirc's own   statement:���������  "I   had   been , slightly troubled with  rheumatic pains for several years, and  had ! to givo   up   the   Army work ��������� on  different   occasions   on account of  my  trouble.'   When   stationed   in   Morris-  burg, four years   ago, -1^ became   completely unfitted for work, as I suffered  ���������fcerrib'y with pains in   the back of  my  neck, down   my   shoulders   and  arms  and, through mv body. -In  fact  I had  pains  of  a stinging   muscular  nature  from the back"of   my head to my toes.  [ could, not bend my  head forward if 1  got the -whole of  Canada  to do so, and  wnen in bed the only slight rest" -I  got  u-us  with  a large   pillow   under   my  shoulder,    this   letting  my head hang  backwards.' T could  not   get  up, but,  iiarl to roll or twist myself  out of  bed.  as my spine seemed to be affected.    My  medical adviser pronounced my troubli  neuralgia  aud  rheumatism  combined  which'he  said   had gone  through mj  whole system.    He prescribed  for, me  'out the medicine gave mc no relief.    3  Ivied various other   remedies,  but they  wercof   110 avail.    Believing my  case  ro be hopeless I determined to  start for  iuy home in  Rosedale,-but  tlie jarring  M. tbo train caused such  terrible agon;  [ was compelled to abandon tho trip a'-  Potorboro,where I-was laid up for threi  weeks.when I finally made a herculeai  ..���������ft'urtf and    reached     home.

At home I received every pos  siblo attention and all   the f treatment  that kind friends suggested,   but I wa  ���������jonstantly going from bad to worse. L  January, 1S96. after many  months  o  untold agony, I  determined to  try Dr  Williams' Pink  Plils, having   read  s-  much in' the  newspapers of   the  grea  oeupfits received by others  from   theii  us<\ To make sure of getting the genu  itio article I sent direct to  the. Dr. ,Wil  Hams' Medicine Co., at Brockvillc, foj  the  pills. ' After   taking two  boxes  1  noticed  a slight   improvement in  my  condition which gave mo some encouragement, aud I kept on until 1 had taker  twelve  boxes,    although  before   I got  through with tho  sixth  I could   go tc  bed and enjoy a good night's  rest such  as I had not done for years.    I never at  any  time enjoyed  better health than 3  am doing at present.    Since my recovery  I have, induced several  friends to  take Pink Pills for various troubles anr1  in each case they have effected cures.  The abovo is a voluntary and correct  statement of the facts of my case and 1  trust that many others may by reading  this, receive the blessing that I have.  If necessary I would make an affidavit  to the above facts at any time.  There never was, and never will be,  a universal panacea, in one remedy, for  all ills to which flesh is heir, the very  nature of many curatives being such  that were the germs of other and differently seated diseases rooted in the system of the patient���������what would relieve one ill in turn would aggravatr  the other.

Joubert,   a   French   chemist,  lays claim" to  the discovery of  a  substance   which  renders   vitiated  air perfectly  pure.    The far reach-  it  ing result of this new discovery can  hardly be well estimated at present.  It will make submarine travel practicable to an extent not dreamed of'  at  present.    And submarine naval  warfare will become a potent factor  in harbor defense, and iii aggressive  warfare   between    powers,    whose  territories ' are   as   close .those  of  Europe.    To France,  for example,  it will  give a means of attack on,  England  at   comparatively. little  cost which  will   nullifv the  defen-  sive power of England's great fleet.  That this discovery is a real practical one is  confirmed by  the fact  that M. Lockoy, the French Minis-  ster of Marine' has  ordered   extensive experiments with M. Joubert's  new  chemical   agent  in  order  to  ascertain how far   it is available in  submarine navigation. M.   Joubert  thus describes   his  remarkable invention:  "In my chemical investigations I have  discovered a substance which makes vitiated air perfectly pure. Its name is not of '  much consequence, but I call it "aerogene,"  or "zoogene," the Greek' roots clearly indicating my meaning* When I discoaered  this atmospherically purifying substance 1  wrote a paper upon it in relation to submarine boats, which paper was read by an  emminent professor, Dr. Laborde, before  the Academy of Medicine. All the members of the Aodemy of Medicine. All the  members of the academy agreed with me.  The ministry of marine have now taken up  my discovery, and at present I am making  experiments under the auspices of the navy  departmant.  I like to live under water, and often  spend a day there. My invention is to  make my country's navy the mosb powerfully destructive in the world. The chemical  substance I have discovered removes all  irrespirable products and replaces t*iem by  required quantity of oxygen.  The substance is solid and takes up little  space. The cost of its production is little.  With four pounds of it a man can breathe  the purest air /imjwen IBpfour hours. Thus,  uot a very large quantity" would keep the  crew of the submarine boat in a healthy  condition for a long time. "  ���������The Sentinel.  Rates from $1.00 to $2.00 per, day,  .

I know  i you  have done your best. hut there have  been so many complaints oi- late that we  have decided it best to make a change. Of  course you will stay jn the' employ of the  company if you care to."  1 It was the superintendent1 of the great  electrical works who was upeaking���������a man  who showed in speech and manner that he  was born to rule, whose dignity was eo  manly that one instinctively respected him'  even though he did not know him.  He'was speaking to one of hi* foremen���������  ' Henry Wilson���������a man brought up in the  works almost���������a man who knew all the  workings of the place from the way a  joint:whk soldered to the most difficult testing, and yet he was now to Iqnc his place.  ' He bud held it for#ve years. He had married -Htittie Lane ou the surety of a good  salary. He hiul bought his little home on  Best street, knowing he could save enough  in a few, years to pay for it.  But ever since he married Hattie Lane  there had   been trouble between, himself  .   and his nearest  Associate  in  the works,  James Con ley.    It had been a question in  the minds of many which of the two men  Hattie would marry. Womanlike, she chose  the one her friends least expected feer to  ,   choose, tho poorer, the homelier of the two.  ���������   The trouble he ami James Conloy had was  .,   not of Henry Wilson's piaking.    Conley  - was always quietly,doing something, to  '-'       prejudice others Against Wilson.' - Little  tales were exaggerated and carried to the sa-  ' perintendent. little underhand things 4ona  to injure him. And now ihe end' had come,  and he was to be ousted from his place.  Some local work had been done under Wilson's direction. Conley had Inspected it  and found that there had been serious oversights, so he reported to the superintendent,  and the superintendent had sent Wilson to  . <do the work' over again, and when Wilson  said the work had been {tampered with the  superintendent aimply looked grave and  ���������aid nothing.   ��������� , . , /tt  "One of the tronple men was killed last  week:," the'superintendent said," "and here-'  after you will do his work.1 The' Wages, ef  ,, -    course, will be smaller than you have been  receiving."  So when Henry Wilson walked up Best  ���������' street to his'little home that afternoon he  carried, a .heavy heart and a face that told  of deep humiliation and bitter disappoint'  Blent.  "We were getting along so well," he  said to Hattie, "and I thought I could  make the last payment on the placentitis  - year, and now"��������� , He did not say any  more, but his teeth' shut together like the  , -jaws of a vise, and the sec look on his face  ��������� ��������� grew harder.  Is there one woman in ten thousand who  would not have done just as Hattie did?,  She saw and appreciated his, feelings, and  with a smile such as only a loving woman  can wear she took his face in her hands, and  looking into his eyes said:  "Never mind, pet; we will get-along all  right, and it.wili  be better for you to nave  work out of doore,, Be brave and patient."  , It'takes much to make some meu forgive,  and some of them never forget.   <  < Morose and melancholy by turns,- silent  '   and unnatural at all times; Henry Wilsou  ���������went about his work.   Wherever there was  a report of trouble he-was to be found. Hattie would-look after him mornings as he  went out, and the tears would oome to her  eyes.  Then one day something happened In the  great electrical works.    Many things hap-  Kn there, but this was something concern-  5 only the two w������ know best there:   The  switches had been turned off in the lamp  testing department, of which Mr. Conley  was now foreman, and h������> nnd his assistants were at luncn.   Henry Wilson, coming  in from outride work, went into the room  for something he wanted.   There was no  ono there.    He staid for a moment and  then went out, meeting the occupants of  the room coming buck to work.   Conley  had been testing an  unsatisfuctory lamp  and had left it on the iloor until his return.  Now he attempted to hang it on the rack.  The   lamp caught only  one  hook.    He  reached  for the other with his left hand,  still holding the other with his right and  forming a circuit through his body.   Some  one had turned on the switch, and the rack  was "alive."  What seemed to him an age went by as  the alternating curreut run through- his  body; his head felt as if itiwas burstiug: his  Deck was swelling and choking him. He  tried to cry out, out could not. Then he  lost consciousness ������ud fell backward. Some  one saw him sway, realized the situation  and turned the switch. Then he fell to the  floor like a log.  There was great commotion on that floor,  the ambulance was-called, the usual things  in ' such cases done, and most men who  work about the fatal "juice" understand  what to do in cases of emergency.  Henry Wilson saw the men carrying a  mariiout to the ambulance and pressed forward with the others- to see what was the  matter. His face did not change or soften  when he saw Conley lying apparently lifeless. He simply picked up his tools and  went about his work.  That afternoon as he was working in the  lower part of the city mending wires after  a lire a meHseuger came for him from the  works, and he wont up to the superintendent's office, where hu was confronted with  the accusation that he had. gone into the  resting room while the meu were abseut  and had turned on tlie switch, knowing  that Air. Conley would probably be the  first one to suffer from touching the lamps.  *'I was iu the room while the men were  at lunch.

"Mr. Conley Is still uneoosdous," the  superintendent continued, "and until such  time as we know the mnif.lt- ot the iujury lis  has received we deem it. beat to place you  under arrest. Of ������our������s we know that you  . two have had muc& trouble in the past."  It was three day* before Conley was able  to speak, and then he yuly coulirmed what  was already known���������that the current was  on when it should b#vn b������������n off.  "It will go hard ������M Wilson," was the  word all around tJ^Ahwp. b������t on the third  day a boy with a white ftuje and trembling  voice came into *fae superiuteudeut's olaee  aud asked for a word with the chief.  He leaned his ejlbow ou the corner of the  desk and began & a voiw that wavered at  first and then grew stronger a* he went on:  "Mr. Smith, I amijneof the students.

I didn't mean any harm."  **And why didn't you tell of this the other day when you knew Mr. Wilson was arrested?" *  "I was afraid."

Sir. Percy and Mifl.s Arthur wore

"Oil, Edward," sho rsighed, with a vory
, drum a tic   shudder,    "you   cannot  think
how I dread to morrow's or, don I j tho visit

rave at mo���mo, hig own sister!"
tho drawing-room.
Tho doctor listened to Hiss Arthur attentively, while sho mado known liar de
sire to return so ths  manor if   tnu danger
of contagion was at an end.     Then ho replied, hurriedlv:���
'"Quite right; quite zidmirablo. But if
you will take my advice, I should say,
don't come just yet. Thero will bo no

I hat   was   quite  as

���   Ingly.   ''X dnn'c think there is the slightest danger, Fjllen,   dear,   but  I  am   convinced I must attend you  to-morrow.    1
shall teal butter to be wifcn you."
"Oh, Edward!' sighed tho mnidon, enraptured at this declaration of tenderness, "you are so careful of mo."
Ho smiled and still caressed hor hand,
saying:��� ' i
"Listen, darling," drawing hor nearer
to him, "I don't-like to have you horn;
it is noli a lit place for you. And I find
that romarks are being- made. This I cannot endure. Besides, I do not think it
right for mo to leave your brother
so entirely -a'c the jnorcy of���Mrs. Arthur. Promise mo that you will consult a physician tn-morruw, and as soon
as the danger of contagion i3 past, you
will gu back."
"But I can't bear to loavo you, Edward. ''
'"And you shall not.
Oakley, too."
"You? Oh, how nica!
you to come?"
"I saw Mrs.  Arthur's
and we settled that."
"Oh,   did, you?    Then
��� friends again?"
He turned unon hor a   too5"'
-   '.'Again?"
" Yes; Cora told mo not to speak of Mr.
Davlin to you, oa you wero not good
friends, and it might make you less froe
to come to the. house. "
��� ,_  _ Mr. Percy's eyebrows went  up porcupt-
'r-ihly. ��� "Mrs. Arthur is vory   thoughtful;
-    but she was mistaken; our little  misun-
< derstanding has not mado us serious enemies. "
-; f "Oh, bow nicoi" rapturously..
J-'- "Very Jiico," dryly.   "Now you will bo
'    a gooct girl and go back soon?"
' ���     "1 don't'think Cora   will  bo over anxious to havo mc  coruo  back,"   she said,
^looking liko  a  moditafcivo  cat-bird.1    "I
know sho  kept  that Calmo in  the house
to spite me."
"1 can readily understand how sho
might bo jealous of you, doar. Perhaps
���' sho fears your influonce ovor your brother.
At any rata, your duty lies there.' Whan
it is time to do so, don't consult hor or
anyone; tako possession of your former
apartments, and stand by your brother in
his hour of need."
Miss Arthur promised to comply with
her lover's request, and ho managed at
last to escape from her, and seek tho repose which he preferred to such sacioty.
, All this rin:o John, Arthur xva-s a prisoner iu tne west wing;" Ho wai attended
by the doctor sometimes, by Celine occasionally, and by Henry almost constantly
since the arrival of that isablo individual.
Lucian Davlin, having no taste for the
work kept aloof na much as possible himself and JDr, La Guise, as he called his
confederate had labored hard and, with
the assistance of old Hagar, had pub the
rooms.in proper condition for the occupancy of a lunatic. And a lunatic .John
Arthur certainly was. , Onco before his
removal, and once since, he had boen
seized with a paroxysm of undeniable insanity.
John Arthur had been, and still was,
the dupe of his supposed brother-in-law
aud Dr. Lo Guise. We havo all beard of
natures than can bo frightened into sickness, almost into dying, of an imaginary
disease, .lohn Arthur's was one of theso.
And, with a'littlo aid from Dr. Lo Guise,
ho had been really quite ill.
Henry had boon constituted his keeper,
a position which bo filled with roluctanco,
and ihorp was a fair prospect that aoonor
or later ho would break into open mutiny.
Although he could not guess at tho nature of the game his master was playing,
yet ho felt assured that it was something
desperate, if not dangerous"
Ho h.-id prumiscd "his young lady," as
he called Madeline), to remain in Mr.
Davlin's service .until sho badn him withdraw, and but for this would hardly havo
submitted to remain JohnArthur's keeper
at any terms. Henry had a certain pride
of his own, and that prulo was in revolt
against, this new servitude. .,
He had nun met Cora Here, and had no
idea that sho was an inmate of the hnu.-:e.
JJr. Le.Guisa had reiievod Henry on tho
.morning'of tne day that Miss Arthur
ventured, for vtho first; time since hor
fijghc, within the walls of Oakley manor,
great."
And thon ho led tho \v:
John Arthur's prconeo.
they went that the oauKu
from his own moms was
fever impregnations   still
John Arthur was sitting in the middle
of his lu-d, ��� boating hi�� pillows wildly,
and imploring Henry, bulween shriek-; of
laug!)Ler, to come and kis* him, evidently mistaking hi in for Home blooming damsel. As the damsol declined to
"ooitui, the lunutlo became furious, and
hurled the pillow;, aim afterwards his
night-cap, at him, witii blazing 03*0.; rnd
cat like agility. This clone, ho began to
rock himself to and fro, and shout out
tlie words of some old. song to an improvised tune that, was all on ono note
Dr. Lo Guise turned tn Mr. Percy,
whisporing: "You seo that's tho way ho
goes on, only worse at timos."
Mr. Percy turned away. Tho fair spin-
stor who had be3ii clinging to him in a
paroxysm of terror, attempted to faint,
but remembering hor complexion thought
better of it and contented herself with
being half led, half carried out, in a
"walking swoon." And both she and
Mr. Percy felt there was no longer room
to doubt tho insanity of her brother.
Having seen them depart, Dr. Lo Guise
sought out Mr. Davlin. 1'inding him in
Cora's room, he entered and informed tho
pair of tho desire Miss Arthur had manifested to come back to her brother's roof,
and of his.modo of putting off the evil
day of her return.
"Humph 1" ejaculated Davlin, "what
does it moan? I saw Percy in tho village
this morning, and he told me'quito
plainly that ho desired an invitation to
quarter himself upon us."
"And what did you say?" gasped Cora.
"Told him to   como, of course, ns soon
as it was safo to do so."
"Well!"' said Cora, dryly, "I don't
think it will bo' very safe for either of
them to como just at presont."
"Oh, well." said tho doctor, cheerfully,
"wo have got seven long days to settle
about that. And if they insist upon coming, and thon catch tho fever, they
mustn't blame me."
And Dr. Lo Guise looked as if ho had
porpetratod a good jolcc.
John Arthur's insanity, was as shortlived as it was violent. Ha lay. for the
rest of the day quiot and^half stupefied.
When night came on, ho sank into a
heavy slumber.
At twelve o'clock that night, all was
quiet in and about tho manor.
-Cora Arthur was sleeping soundly,
dreamlessly, as such women do sleep. ��� In
the room adjoining hers, Celine Leroque
sat, broad awako and listening .intently.
At last, satisfied that her mistress was
sleeping, Celine arose and stole softly
into tho room where sho lay.
Softly, softly, sho approached the
couch, passing a river of moonlight that-
poured in at the broad windows. Then
she drew from a pockofc, something
wrapped jn a handkerchief.
, Noiselessly, swiftly, she moved, and
then the handkerchief, shaken free from
the somathing within was laid upon tho
face of the sleeper whilo tho odor of chloroform flllod the room.
Nimbly her fingers moved, pulling
away the coverings, and then tho clothing from tho unconscious body. It is
done in a moment: With a smothered exclamation of triumph sho draws away a
siJken belt, and removing tho handkerchief, glides noiselessly from the room.
She steals on to her own room in "the
west wing. Hero she locks tho door and
striking a light,, hurriedly, rips the silkon
band with a tiny penknife, and draws
from thence two papers.
One glance suffices. Replacing tho papers,,she binds the belt about her own
body, and then ^envelopes herself in a
huge waterproof, wi.th swift, nervous
fingers.
And now, for the second time, this girl
is fleeing away from Oakley. Out into
the night that is illuminatod now by a,
faint, faint moon; through the bare,
leafless, chilly woods, and down the path
that orossos the railway track not far
from the little station. Once more she
follows'the iron rails; onco more sho lingers in the shadows, until the train thunders up; the night train for Now York.
Thon she springs on board.
For tho second time, Madeline Payne
is fleeing from Onkloy and all that it contains; fiooing cityward to begin, with
the morrow, a new task, and a now chap-
tor in her .existence.
But no lover is beside hor now; for
that lovo is dead in lier heart. And no
Clarence breathes in her oar a warning,
for now it is not needed. Since that first
Juno flitting, sho has learned tho world'
and its wisdom, good and ovll.
And tho cloud that Hagar saw on that
Juno night, hangs dark abnvo the house
of Oukley.
escorted by Mr. Percy. He had detected
some signs of faver. nithough Mr. Arthur
declared himself, fooling better, and administered a powder to check it.
Soon the patient began to show digits
of increasing restlessness,and by tho time
Henry appeared to announce that Miss
Arthur de.=.lred an interview with Dr. Le.
Guisa, he began to wrangle with his physician and gavo expression to various
vagaries.
Consigning his charge to Henry, with
tha remark that he "must watch him
close, and not lat bim get hold of anything," Dr.   Lo   Guiso  hurried  down   to
CHAP T^R XXXIII.
CROSS PURPOSES.
An irate pair were   seated   at breakfast
the morning after Celine's flitting.     And,
whilo they ato   little, they  talked   much
and earnestly,   sometimes angrily.  , They'.
had   arrived   at  the  conclusion,   which,
alchougn erroneous, had bean  foreseen by
the astuto Celine, namely:   That the robbery had been committod  at  the instigation of Mr. Percy,   and   that   Celine had
been bought ovor and  used by  him   as a
tool.
It was evident that something must be
done, and that quickly.
While theso papers were in tho hands of
Percy, as undoubtedly they wero at that-
moment, it wero bogt to keep that gentleman as much as possible under tnoir own
eyo.
Yesfcorday, it had seemed desirable that
Misd Arthur  and   her   fiauoa  should 'bo
��bpt out of tho housa of,Oakley. To-day,
they agreed that tho quickor tb3 pair 00k
up their abode beneath its hospitable
roof, tho sooner they. Mr. Davlin and his
accomplice, would hroath^ frooly. If they,
could get the two in too same house with
themselves, they might yet outwit Mr.
Farcy���with tho aid of their friend and
ally, the sham doctor, if m no otiinr way.
Meanrime, they would nob make tho robbery known; or rather, they won id inform the servants and ail others whom It
seemed desirnulo 10 enlighten, that the
girl, Celine, had possessed herself of certain jewels and of Mrs. Arthur's -purse,
and lied with her spoils.
Accordingly,Hagar was summonod and
told of tho baio ingratitude of-the Pranch-
maid. Whereupon sho was much astonished, and ventilated her opiu cms of
French folk in general, and tiiat one' in
particular. Through Hagar, ��� the other
servants, now lew iu inimhui', wore informed of tho defalcation, and the extent
of damage demo by Miss Celine Leroquo.
Thon tho kitchen cabinet hold a session
forthwith, and eottled the J'ato of their
departed' contomponuy. being sibly assise-
o 1 by Hagar
The Professor was made no wisnr than
war.) the resu of the tools who sorvotl tho
plotter.". But ho was somewhat surprised
upon being dosired, by Mr. Davlin. to
equip himself for a walk, tho object of
which was to allay tho alarm of Miss Arthur and' her frioml, and invito them to
tho manor forthwith. Said invitations
wore to bo followed up with the doctor's assurance that,having mado a more minute
examination, ho was fully satisfied that
there was no fear of contagion from Mrs.
Arthur, and but little from hor husband;
none, in fact,' unless they desired to bo
much in his room. -
The worthy-pair sot out for tho village,
and were so fortunate as ��� to .meet Mr.
Percy on the very threshold of the inn.
Having exchanged greetings *and' oigar3,
aud, having discussed the wualhor and
various other interesting topics, the gon-
tlomon sent up their compliments to Miss
Arthur.
They wore soon admitted into the'pres-
eneo of that lady, where mora skirmishing was dona, during which Dr. Le C-Juiso
unburdened himself, as per program mo.
and then Mr. Davlin fired his first shot.
"By-tne-by, Miss Arthur, you may congratulate yourself that you did not retain
that impostor of a Fronch maid lungor in
your service."
Lucian-bad purposely placed bimsoif
near tne spinster, and where he could observe the face of Percy without seeming
to do so. But that gentleman-was glancing lazily out at tho window,, and was as
axpressionlcss as putty. Luoian uttered a
mental, "Confuunu his sang froid," as
he continued:���- '
"She has robbed my sisto'r of j'owols and
money to tho tune of a couple of thous-'
and, and has cut and. run."
'.'Goodness gracious, Mr. .Davlin!"
shriokedthe spinster. . ; "
. But Percy only turned his head lazily,
and elevated his- eyebrows in muto comment.
"Yes," laughing lightly, ','1 suppposo
the hussy fancied thai tshe had made a
heavier haul still.. My sister had about
hor person some papors, .or rathor duplicate papers that are dqpositod in' a safer
placo. Tho jade took these'also, thinking,
no doubt, that they were of valuo or, perhaps, without examining them to seo that
they wero worse than worthless to her."
"Oh, Mr. Davlin. what an artful creature! I was sure sho was not quite to bo
trusted. But who would havo supposed
that sho would dare���" gushod. Miss Arthur.
"Oh, sho is no doubt a professional;
beloncs tJ some city 'swell mob,' begging your pardon. But J shall run up to
the city to-night, I think, and try .and
seo if the dotoctives can't unoarth her."
dtill no sign from. Percy; not so much
as tho quiver of an eyelid.
So Mr. Davlin camo straight to tha
issue, thinking that suroly Mr. Percy
would betray something here; perhaps
would refuse to como to Oakley. In such
case, Lucian felt that ho should be
tomptod to spring upon and throttla
him from sheer, desperation.
But again: ho. was mistaken, for no
sooner was his invitation extonded than
, Mr. Percy accepted it with evident gratification, saying;in his"oasy drawl.- "Shall
be delighted to chango my quarters.
Anything must bo an improvement upon
this. And as your���ah, Dr. Le Guiso-^-
says there is positively tio danger, Miss
Arthur will of course be rejoiced to return to her proper place." And of course
Miss Arthur assented.
Before leaving, Mr. Davlin arranged
that the carriage' should come for Miss
Arthur the noxt day, and that a portur
should im mediately transfer their luggage to Oakloy.
"My faith," mused lie, as he strode
back to tell Cora of his mission; "but he
carries it with a high hand. I didn't
think there wan so much real devil in
him. He is playing a fine game, but [
don't think ho can draam that wo suspect him. If wo can docoive him in this,
and get hint into tho house, wo will- be
able to accomplish his downfall. I
think."
Meantime, Edward Percy was viewing
the mattor from his own stand-point.
"Luck is running Into my hand," ho
assured himself. "They aro evidently a
littlo bit afraid of mo; there's nothing
more awe-inspiring than a cool front.
and I certainly carry that. Onco .-he Oakley, it will be strange if I. don't fatthom
their littlo mystery. If they are" doing
mischief thm-o, 1 won't bo' behind in
claiming tho lion's 'share of the spoils'."
According to arrangement. Miss Arthur and hor lovor . were transferred to
Oakley on tho following .day,-and thore
the game of cross purposes went on.
Cora received Miss. Arthur with much
cordiality, averring that she had miwss'.'l
tha society of "dear Ellen," more than
she could tell, and declaring that now
she should begin to goc woll in earnest.

Little  Osies  Huve   to   Depend   on   Hill*
Cor THeii- Toys.
Few indeed would bo their playthings
if the Chinese children had to depend oir
toy stores for them. As it is, the peddler
is a familiar sight in every Chine?a city,
and when tho children hear tho gong of a
toy seller it is a signal for a rush io 1ho
front gates to catch him before ho yens by.
At a call theso men  slip  the  pole, from
their shoulders and  set  their  baskets on
; the ground, and thero is  always  a jrro.np
of children ready to gather around them.
A display, of toys carried by one of those
= toy sellers includes''-many things familiar
: to Americans,-; thoi^h the shapes sconi
odd aud fantastic���cj,iy fruits, dolls of all
kinds,' pewter jewelry, earrings aud hair
ornamonts, firecrackers of strange shapes
which will hardly ever go oft, toy pipes,
little bowls and chopsticks, small carved,
idols, littlo horses, dogs, camels and olor
phants all covered with rabbit fur, and
wagons with music boxes under tho seats
that grind out a tune as you pull thorn
along.
Other things seem stranger still, for the
kites, made'in tho shape of birds, fish, serpents, dragons and even inanimate objects
liko bolls and houses, will havo wind harps
fastened on their backs to make them sing
whilo in tho air, and will havo eyes set
looso in their heads, so thab.whnn tho wind
blows tho eyes will turn around and look
as if they wore winking at you. Thero
aro long glass trumpets, to bo blown like
bugles, that give out a beautiful, clear
note; littlo shuttlecocks mado out; of et
couple of cash bound together with red
leather and with n bunch ,of feathers fastened in tho holes iu tho cash,.which tho
children keep in the air by bumping .with
their heads und-striking with their feet:
molds for making,.clay money, whistling
tops that spin.on.a spring held between two
sticks and small whistles to fnsteii on the
tails of pet pigeons to whistlo as they fly.
You will also notice a lot of clay molds
of different kinds of animals lor fruits or
other familiar objects, and for ono cash
you can tako your choice. Tho toy seller
then opens np the bottom tray in his rear
basket and shows a bowl of yellow candy
set over a pan of burning charcoal to keep
-it soft. II0-rubs a littlo Hour in tho molds
to keep tho candy from sticking, picks up,
a littlo of tho soft sweet, which ho works
into a cup shapo in his fingers and then.''
draws out, closing up the hole. One end
is drawn out longer than the other and
then broken off. Ho places his lips to tho
broken place and begins to blow, and the
lump of'candy slowly swells.' Thon. ha
claps tho melds which you hzive chosen
around it and gives a hard blow, breaks
off the stem  through which  hb Las   been
blowing, opens tho molds, dips a little,
bamboo stick into tho soft sugar and
touches it to tho sido of the ' candy figure
in tho mold, lifts it out of the mold and
hands it to you on tho stick, nil in much
less time than It takes to toll about it.���

Tho wealth.that is used up in riotous  living is diverted from better uses. Extravagance is���������not necessarily luxury.  The mere transfer of  wealth  from one  ��������� hand to another does uot involve de-  atruction. Consumption means using  up. When a nation spends $250,000 for  a groat  picture, the wealth  is not' de-  '���������.stroyod'; it is simply transferred.  When  '��������� the'jubileo plunger ran through ������2,'GOO,-  OOOiu 12 calendar months, the wealth  of the world was diminished only by  " the amount of it he aud those who  sponged oil him put down their throats  and otherwise wantonly destroyed. In  io far as it was simply transferred to  others to whom ho paid extravagant  prices, it was not destroyed.  To givo high prices for articles which  . are rare is not necessarily luxury, for  the ptico and tho rare edition or the old  inasier both remain.    It istrue that ex-  ' travagance may mean tho transfer of  wealth  to theso who will  not use  it  ���������well, but it does not usually mean this.  It generally,involves a transfer" to'the  hands of those who will use' it more  wisely.���������Journal of Ethics.  The MlMsln*; Pawn.

A glance at the board and men sufficed to show that a pawn was 'really  missing. The excitement over the lost  pawn became so intense that a lively altercation ensued, in which everybody  in tho room took part.'  Quiet was at last restored, and the  playerjwho had lost his pawn resumed  his'seatimd began "to drink his coffee,  which was covered with thick cream,  when ho all at once got something into  his throat which nearly choked -him.  Ho suoceoded, however, in extricating  the intrusive article, which turned out  to be the missing pawn. :���������  '  The chess player, intent on the game,  had thrown it into his cup in place of a  lump of sugar.���������Pearson'B Weekly.- . .

On the  contrary, my blood  became weaker.    I  daily lost strength and vitality, and my  nervous system became so weak that it  was a constant source of suffering both  - day and night.    I lost appetite, the sight  1 of food nauseated.me, the weak state of  rriy system  caused  shortness of breath  and unnatural action of the heart, such  as fluttering jand violent palpitation, and  xhy face  was like chalk.    I was in this  condition and constantly getting weaker  'when I began taking Dr. Ward's Blood  and Nerve Pills.   -1 had read tbe books  they distributed and their advertisements-  in  the  papers,  and  thought,   " Well,   I  ' have taken so much  medicine without  . benefit it is useless to spend any more  ��������� money.'    However^ I finally made up my  mind.   It in a forlorn hope ; I can but try.  If I am not .benefited I will not be hurt.

(  La   srippe, now  sweeping over  thi'  country   in ' one   of   its   periodic epidemics, is one of the most  treacherous'  and difficult diseases with which medical,  scieuce has  to  cope.    It ,is iu its  after effects that it is  particularly disastrous, and these assume mauy forms,  prominent among which  may be men-,,  tioned heart  weakness, bronchial,  and  lung troubles, nervous prostration, alternate chills and fever, a feeling of  constant lassitude and an indisposition  to either mental or physical exertion.  Often   the  sufferer   does   not recover,  from the after effects of la grippe for  months, and in cases cf previously enfeebled constitutions and among those  of advanced age, the number of cases  terminating fatally' ia appalling.  .   Even after a mild attack of la grippe  it ig imperative that tho system should  be   thoroughly   toned   up, the nerves  strengthened aud .the blood   enriched.  Or.

Mr. Harry Dagg, a, well known far:  mer living near Ninga, bears testimony  to the great value of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills in removing the after effects of la  grippe. The disease left him a victim  to cold chills, violent headaches, dizzi-.  uess and severe palpitation of the  heart. Mr. Dagg says-.���������"I finally  went to Boissevain and consulted a doctor who - stated that the trouble was  likely to develop into ' consumption. I  was under his care, .for about three  months, but was gradually growing  weaker and unable .to do any work. At  this stage one of my neighbors advised  me to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a  trial, and as my case was critical I determined to give them a fair trial, and  purchased a dozen boxes. Before the  third was used there was good evidence  that they were helping me, and before  the dozen boxes wero used I was as  strong and vigorous as I had ever been,  and I can heartily recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for the manifold  troubles that follow an attack of la  grippe.  If you havo suffered from an attack  of la grippe procure a supply of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills at once, and they  will put you right. .Insist upon getting tho genuine, as imitations never  cured anyone.

Although poal mining has hither  to, been confinect,praptically speaking to the Island and Crow's   Nest  (jollieries, poal is known  to ex.ist in  workable quantities in various  sections over almost the whole Province,    In the, valleys of   the   Peace  and Skegna Rivers, in   the   Qrnen-  Jca country,, on   Queen   Charlotte  Islands, up the Fraser and   Nicola  ���������and   throughout    the    Boundary  Cheek District, Dr,   Q, M. Dawson,  Dr.Selwin     and   other   'geologists  have reported the existence   of   extensive coal deposits, and no doubt  ft few   years   hence   will   see   the  working up of many valuable, mines  Other thau'tho*e now in  operation.  The'importance of B.-Uish Colum  bja ppal in Ca] forma   is   evidenced  by the fact that of the 1,802.373 tons  supplied    to     that     market     in  1898, 651,208 tons, or more than a  third of the   total   amount   came  from this Province..,   The   balance  was obtained from England,   Australia,    Japan   and    the    United  States, .   .  The output of coal from the Vancouver Island and Crow's Nest  ,' Collieries for the past year was  1,136,485 tons, of which 9,954 tons  came from th@ lat'er colliery, Of  th������ the 795,^61 tons of Island coal  exported to foreign countries in  1898, 752,686 tons went to the Un  Jted States. The output of coal, as  well as foreign shipments, for 1898  was largely in excess of the preceding year,  The number of accidents   in   the  Vancouver Island collieries during  the past 10 years was 479,of   whice  $% were fatal; the number   fhr   '98  waj 59? with 7 fatal; and the number for 1898 was was 56, with  seven fatal.    During '98,  2,841   men  were employed in the mines.    Thus  jt will be seen the number  of  accidents   was    comparatively" small.

This  ventilation; the  Inspector states, ig "good   and   all  sufficient."     (The    Review     will  please take note.)  The     conclusion     drawnby   the  Minister from a   consideration   of  the Mines Report   as   a   whole   is  that the mines of the province will  be called   upon   to   increase   their  present output and that   1899  will  prove prosperous year for the coal  trade of the Pacific coast.  ing Mr. Burnett's letter. There is  nothing in it which can give offense  to the most sensitive. On the contrary, it breathes a spirit unfortunately only too rare in these days  when questions religious are discussed with a bitterness greatly to  be deplored. Undoubtedly everyone has a perfect right to advocate  that which he believes to be the  correct view of things���������it is only a  coward who will deny his real opinions just because he happens to be  among those who differ from   him.  But it is difficult for the   ordinary  mind to discover what good   end is  promoted by  telling a   man   that  hir co-religionists two or three cen-  tsries ago burned or   hanged   their  opponents. Let by-gones be bygones. Let us look on the better  side of things.  The day is fast coming when the  struggle will be not between this  creed and that one, but between  Christianity and total unbelief. If  Christians of various creeds ��������� would  only consider this they would devote less time to . quarreling   with  each other.

The residents of Stratford were startled  this morning at hearing of the unexpected  and sudden death of Mrs. John Hamilton.  For many years this lady and her husband,  who was collector of customs, took a prominent part in the social and intellectual life  of the city. Nono were better known, none  more ready to assist in every good cause.  The deceased lady was a good woman,  whose unselfish acts of kindness were many  many and varied. The outside publio knew  little of this, for she was not accustomed to  let "her left hand know, what her right  hand doeth," but there are homes in Stratford that are the brighter and the happier  because she sojourned in this city. Death  is always sad, but there is a peculiar pathos  attaching to this one. It is only a little  while ago that Mrs. Frank Harrison, daugh  ter of the deceased, came home to die.  Shortly after, another daughter, Mrs. Eckstein, die:!, and now, ere the sorrow caused  by these bereavements has had time to be  softened, the mother has gone. Mrs. Hamil  ton had been ailing for some, but died suddenly of heart , trouble this morning. Her  maiden name was Miss Bengali.  The surviving children are1 Mrs. G-. Gr.  McPherson, Mr. P. P. Hamilton of the  court house, agent for the Canada Life Co.;  J. W. Hamilton of the Northern Steamship  Co., of Buffalo, and J. Cecil Hamilton,  barrister.  The funeral of the late Mrs. John Hamilton tock place from the family residence  corner St. David and Church streets, Monday afternoon at. 3 o'c'ock, aud was largely  attended. The pallbearers were Messrs.  Alex. CaveD, James OLoaue, S. S. Fuller,  H. M. Johnson, Wm. Buckingham, Sheriff  Hosse, Wm, Jeffrey and O. J. MacGregor.  The. service were conducted by Rev. M. L.  Leitch. Interment was made at Avondole  cemetery.  ��������� SStpaford Beacon.  ASSOCIATION  FOR THE PROMOTION  OF THE UNITY OF CHRISTENDOM.  From Victoria Colonist.  As  the  annual   special  intercessions for  the reunion of all  Christians  of  the above  association draws nigh,  permit  me %o lay  before   your   readers   the   obfects   of  thil  society.    In 1S57 an association was formed  in London, Eug.,   under  the above title by  by members both of the   clergy and laity of  the  Roman Catholic, Greek and Anglican  Communions.    It    is   hoped   and  believed  that many however widely separated at pre*  sent in their religious convictions, who de*  plore   the grievous scandal to  unbelievers,  and   the   hindrance, to the   promotion   of  truth and holiness among Christians qauaed  by the   unhappy   divisions existing  among  those who profess to have  "One Lord,   one  Faith, one   Baptism,"   will   recognize the  consequent duty of joining their intercessions   to   the   Redeemer's   dying    prayer,  "that they all may be  one in  Us, that the  world   may  believe   that   Thou   hast sent  Me."    In joining the   association no one is  understood as thereby expressing an opinion  on any   matter   which   may   be   deemed a  point of controversay,   or on auy  religious  question except that the object of the association is desirable.    They'are simply asked  to unite for the   promotion of a high and  holy end, in reliance  on the promise of onr  Divine Loid,   that   "whatsoever   we shall  ask in prayer,  believing, we shall receive,"'  and that "it two of you on earth as  touching anothing that they shall ask, it shall be  done for the of My Father who is in hea- ���������  ven."    The daily use of   a  short   form of  'prayer, together with  one "Our  Jbather"���������  for the intention of the  association���������is  the  only obligation incurred  bp those  who join  it.    There is no entrance fee or subscription  of any kind . required,   in order   that membership   shall   involue   no   obligation   bu  prayer,   and that  those   whom   God hath  "chosen   the   poor   of   this world, rich   in  faith and heirs of the kingdom" may not be  hindered from  joining   the associotion.    It  is hoped, however, that all,   whether  members or not, who wish well to the objects of  the association and   are able to  contribute,  will give accoiditig to their nieaus to deir*y  the   neceosa.y expenditure    aB the   Wprku>f  Che association .includes a large  correspondence both at  home and   abroid.    Following is the programme   of the   reuniou of all  Cnriatiaus set for this   year from May 12 to  21 iuclua.ve: May 12, lor faith in the  power of pray ev; 13, for ceebaiion of  all prejudices and bitterness; 14,   tor all  Christians  everywhere; 15, for the  Bishoys of the  Catholic  Church; 16, for   the   Roman   Communion; 17,   for the  Eastern  Communion;  18, for the  Anglican Cstnmunion;   19,   for  all Christians who have the Apostolic   ministry;   20, for all   Christians   without   the  Apostolic ministry;  21,   for the reunsoh of  Christendom.     Haviug   beea  appointed   a  local secretary of the association for British  Columbia 1 would be pleased  to receive the  name of    person   of   any   Christian   body  desirous   of   joining   the assocauon.
