Petitions have been sent to the Ontario  Government in favor of legislation for  tbe inspection of private banks.  There is a demand from Manitoba for  Ontario oats, owiu^c to the scarcity of that  cereal in the prairie province.  Wholesale people report periodical payments on paper matured this week very  "well met. T-he percentage of renewals  was smaller thau a year ago.  The volume of business on the Toronto  Stock Exchange in 1S97 was the largest in  Its history���������24(5,000 shares not including  M00.000 bonds and a codsiderable number  of mining shares. i  Owing to improvnd country roads in  ���������Ontario the farmers' deliveries of grain  are increasing.

The Provincial Government has been  *sked to prevent tlie export of nickel ore  from Ontario by placing an export duty  ������n it, so as to compel the smelting of the  ore at the mines or some pla.ee in the  province. The government; has pointed  out that it is not within its power to place  an export duty on tlie ore.  The New Year opened with an active  demand for staple goods.' Dry ' goods  travelers who returned on their routes  this week have been raking liberal placing  orders for spring goods and report the  ���������prospects for the balance of the season  very bright. ' Stocks left in the hands of  retailers from last year are small and  large purchases will have to be made.  "Values are generally firm foi' both domestic and imported goods. More American  cotton goods thau formerly are offering  here. Some houses are bringing in large  quantities of American Indigoes, wrap-  perettes, etc., and as the American mills  have changed their prices slightly to catch  the Canadian trade these imports will  likely expand. Payments are generally  -good. The payments on paper maturing  on the fourth were belter'than last year.  Hov   to   Economize   Space    and  Crusliinjj the Clothes.  Lay aside your sandals, nightdress,  toilet articles, medicines and shoe dressing for your traveling bag. It is wise; to  take an umbrella in the hand. Some strap  the sunshade^ to this, but in case of a  shower you would not kntow what to do  with tho sunshade, so it is best to put the  latter into the trunk. Those with adjustable handles are best for packing.  Pack in layers, having ��������� everything as  flat as possible. This economizes room.  All delicate apparel should be wrapped  separately in tissue paper or towels, and  sleeves of fine gowus should be stuffed  out with newspapers, also the crowns of  hats and bonnets, after which they may be  pinned (hat pins) to the bottom or sides  of ,hat box to keep thorn ,from shaking  about.  Aigrets and other steeple-high adornments may^bo detached, thon fastened on  afterward. Fold the Tront breadth of skirt  in its creaso, then it will not look mussod.  | It is not of great importance if tho other  ' breadths are creased. Thoy soon shak*  out.  Nover double,over tho bottom of skirt  if it is longer than the trunk. Double  from tho top instead, where there is no  stiffening to hold creases. Fold tho waists  inside out as smoothly as possible and  stuff out the loups of large bows with  newspapers.  Hose, jersey undergarments, etc., may  be saved out to tuck into corners and  spaces to keep the layers from jarring.  'lhts main point is to keep a smooth surface in packing, placing layer upon layer,  and when bulky articles are put in building around them until you havo a smooth  surface again. 25ever crowd breakable-  articles in the corners or sides, rather  wrap them in newspapers and place  among the clothing. ' - K- <  Some may advise you to cany bottles  in your trunk. Don't do it, unless, of  course, they are done up druggist fu-shiou.  I havo carried'shoe dressing and preserves  among my clothing " several times, but  tho last timo it was not a success, and so  I advise you to take such articles by  hand, or pack them by themselves and  send by express.

Sleeplessness.,  There is no groater foe to beauty than  lack or loss of sleep. To fall asleep when  your head touches the pillow and to know  nothing till the next morning���������that is  what a night's rest ought to bo, but, some  unfortunates, as soon as the, lights are ���������  out, are wider awake than ever and begin  to toss and tumble until, unable  to bear it any longer, they got up aud  read or write.      .  , , ' '  ��������� Insomnia is really a disease and many  are the causes. Some people who cannot  sleep when their beds He from east to  west will find comfort' in sleeping- with  their heads to the north. Scientists claim  in this position thu magnetic currents of  the earth pass through the body. Absence  of fresh air is a bar to peaceful slumber,  and a light in the room also induces  wakefulness.  The bedclothes and the pillows should  have attention. Never sleep on a feather  bed���������a hair mattress is tho best thing. A  spring mattress should be under it. Very  heavy bedclothes are bad and pillows  should be stuffed so they do not get flal  The head should be well out from under  the clothes.  Sleeplessness is often caused from the  want of food. Many people take their last  meal too long before bedtime, and it it  the faintness caused by hunger that pre;  vents sleep. A half-glass of hot milk  should be taken at bedtime, and a cracker. Crackers, bread and butter or milk  should be within reach, and if you cannot sleep they should be taken, at once.  Often a drink of water will bring the  wished-for sleep, and hot water is much  more likely to bring about the result than  cold..,  An over-excited state of the brain la  also the cause of much sleeplessness; not  only is the brain being used to the utmost strain all. day, bub books, aro read  and study gone in for. late at night, and  then, when every brain-nerve is excited to  its uttermost extent, you go to bed a,nd  are surprised that sleep refuses to follow.  The only cure for this is not to read anything heavier than a novel an hour before  you go to bed, and to take a warm bath'  and a glass of warm milk This will generally send you to sleep very quietly.���������,  Chicago News.

A tolog.-am was brought inr.o  the monastery, wb r.s ho and his brut horn  were seated, announcing the Pop''������  death. All prswni. except this man fell  into bitter disuro-x. He alone remained  unmoved, dty:iarin .: ;;h:it the news could  not be true, for tre Pope had still ten  years to live.  claims regarding- the merits of the Trask's  Magnetic Ointment are borne out by the  facts.  Dr. Burton Hubbell, Amelia, O., in a  long- lotter, says, among many other  things: "I have used the 'Magnetio  Ointment' in a number of cases of Piles  and in no case has it failed to give immediate relief, and generally a permanent cure."  V\ m. M. Watson, La Clede, Mo., says:  "My wife was afflicted with Piles for  about three years. We tried various  remedies, yet no relief was afforded until I bought ono bottle of your 'Trask's  Magnetic Ointment,' which entirely  cured her."  C. L. Hoot, Monroeville, O., says : "I  have been using your s Trask's Magnetic  Ointment' for bleeding Piles', and rind it  helps mo more than anything else I have  tried.". ���������, '       ./������������������  The Trask's Magnetic Ointment is  prepared, by Francis U.

"When a girl at school, in,Reading, Ohio, I had a severe  attack of brain fever. On my recovery, I found myself  perfectly bald and, for a long time, I .feared I should bo  permanently so.

Neither of the two  .watchers manifested any   interest   in the  ������ /funeral   preparations,    nor   did they feel  any.        '  "I shall not be-present at the burial,"  Mrs. Lamotte had said to her husband.  "Sybil's illness and Evan's, will furnish  sufficient excuse, and���������nothing constrains  mo to do honor to John Burrill now."  Mr. Lamotte opened his lips to remonstrance, but catching a look upon the  - face to his wifo that he had learned to its  fullest meaning, he closed, them again  and went grimly below stairs, and,  through all tho day previous to the departure of tho funeral cortege, Jasper Lamotte was the only member of that aristocratic family who "was visible tortho  curious ga ze of the strangers who attended  upon the,burial preparations.  Early'in tho   forenoon   an   unexpected  ,   delegation   arrived' at   the   entrance' of  Mapleton.  First,' came Doctor Benoit, driving  alone in his time-honored gig, the only  vehicle he had been seen to enter within  tho memory of W���������.    ,  Close behind him,', a   carriage   containing four gentlemen, all   manifestly   persons of, more than   ordinary   importance,  ,. Mr. O'Meara, in fact, his colleague of the  iNew   York   Bar,   and   two elderly, self-  possessed strangers, evidently city men.  They desired a' few words with Mr.  Lamotte, and tljat gentleman, after somo  hesitation and no little - concern as to the  nature of their business at such a time,  presented himself before them, looking  . the personification of subdued sorrow and  haughty reserve.  Mr. O'Meara acted as spokesman for  the party.  "Mr. Lamotte," he began, with profound politeness and marked coldness of  manner and speech, "I should apologize  1 for our intrusion at such a time, were  it not that our errand is one of gravest  importance and can not be put oil. Allow me to introduce to you Mr. Wedron,  Doctor Gaylor and Professor Harrington,  aU of New York." '   .  Mr. Lamotte recognized the strangers  with- haughty courtesy, and silently  awaited disclosures.  "Mr. "Wedron and myself, as the repre-  ��������� sentatives and counsel of Doctor Heath,  have summoned from the city these two  gentlemen, whom you must know by reputation, and -we desire that they be  allowed to examine the body of Mr. Burrill, in order to acertain if the wounds  upon the body were actually made by the  knife found with it."  The countenance of Mr. Lamotte darkened perceptibly. <  "It seems to me," he said, with a  touch of sarcasm in his voice, "that this  Is an unwarrantable and useless proceeding���������doubly so at this late hour."  "Nevertheless, it is a necessary one,"  broke in Mr. Wedron, crisply. "It is presumable that you can havo no personal  enmity against Doctor Heath, sir; therefore yon can have no reason for opposing  measures instigated by justice. The examination will be a brief one.''  The resolute tone of his voice, no less  than his words, brought Jasper Lamotte  to his senses.  " Certainly, I have no wish to oppose  the ends of justice," he said, in a tone  Which, in spite of himself, was moet ungracious. "Such an investigation is naturally distasteful to me. Nevertheless.  you may proceed, gontlcmen, but I should  not like the ladies of my household to  discover what is ��������� going on. They are  sufficiently nervous already. If you will  excuse me for a moment, I will go up  and request them to remain in their  rooms for the present. Alter that, y.> i  are at lioerty to proceed."  They all seat themselves gravely, and  Mr. Lamotte, taking this as a quiet  acquiescence, goes out, and softly but  swiftly up the broad stairs; not to the  rooms occupied by   the   ladies,   however,  A sickly hue overspreads Frank'Lamotte's face, and he sits weakly down in  the chair, from which he has just risen,  saying never a word.  "Frank," says Jasper Lamotte, eyeing  his son sharply. "Do you see any reason  ���������why this investigation should not take  place; supposing that it were yet in ,. our  power to hinder it?"  A silence that lasts manv seconds,  then:��������� ,,  "It is not in our power to hinder it,"  says Frank, in a hollow voice; "neither  would it be policy. Let the play go on,"  and he turns his face away with a weary'  gesture.  ��������� For a moment, Jasper Lamotte stands  gazing at his son; a puzzled look on his  face; then he turns and goes out as softly  as he came.  "Gentlemen," he says, re-entering the  library, with' the same subdued manner,  "you are at liberty���������to proceed with your  examination, and,- if I may suggest, it is  as well to lose no time. The funeral takes  place at two o'clock." ' \  They arise simultaneoxisly,   and   without more words, follow Jasper   Lamotte  to the room ot death.  At the door, Mr. Wedron halts.  "I will   remain   on   the'balcony," he  says to Mr. O'Meara, but sufficiently loud  to be heard   by   all   the   rest, "I   never  could endure the sight of a corpse " And  he turns abruptly, and goes   out through  the open doorway; taking   up   a position  on the "broad   piazza,    and   turning   his  "gaze toward, the river.  Jasper, Lamotte is less sensitive, however; he enters with the others, and  stands beside O'Meara, while the physicians do their work.  "At least," he thinks, "I'll know what  they are about, and what their verdict  is."  .But in this ho is disappointed." They  have brought with them a surgeon>'s  knife; the precise counterpart of the one  now in possession of the prosecution, and  of the same manufacture.  . One by. one they examine, they compare, they probe, and all in silence. Then  they turn toward O'Meara.  "I believe we have finished," says  Professor Harrington.       *  "And the result?" asks Jasper Lamotte, eagerly, in spite of himself.  "That," replies Mr. O'Meara, with  elaborate nonchalance, "will be made  known at the trial. Mr. Lamotte, we  trust that you will pardon this most  necessary intrusion, and wo wish you a  very good morning.''  The examination has been a very brief  affair; it is just ten o'clock when tho  four unwelcome guests drive   away.  Doctor Benoit does not accompany  them; he goes up stairs to visit bis patient.  Jasper Lamotte asks him no questions.  He knows that Doctor Benoit is a man  of honor and that he will keep his professional secrets. So he goes sulkily back  to his library,  N. R.

Jasper   Lamotte  is   in no mood for receiving  visitors,   but he is, just 7iow, in  a position where ho cannot, with safety,  follow tho dictates of his haughty nature.  He is filled with suspicion; surroumli-u  by   a   mystery he cannot fathom;   and, a  man   who  begs   for au .audience ao such  an hour must have an   extraordinary errand.  Reasoning thus, he says, crustily :-���������  "Show the fellow here."  A moment later the man   shuffles into  the room.    Mr. Lamotte glances up,   and  his brow darkens ominously.

To a reporter  he   gave   the   following-  particulars : I had been a sufferer from  rheumatism   for upwards   of   twenty  years, at times being  confined to the-  house.    At one time t was laid up for  sixteen weeks, and during a portion of  that timo was -onfined to my bed and  perfectly helpl ss.    I had  the benefit  of excellent mo Heal treatment,  but it  was of no avail.    I believe, too, that I  have tried eve-y  medicine, advertised'  for the cure of rheumatism, and I am 'i  sure I expende L at least $200.00 and  j got nothing mere at any time than th������  merest   tempoi iry   relief.    At  last-, I  was induced   to   give   Dr. ,Williams*  Pink Pills a tri il,/and from that  time;  I date my good fortune in getting rid!'  of the disease.   ' I continued using them<  for several m, uths and  daily   found  that the.troub'e  that had  made my  life miserable for so many years  was^  disappearing, a'id at last all traces- of"  pain had left m-j and I was cured-.-  I'  say cured; for T have not .since had.,a  recurrence of tie trouble. '  .  As proving t.'ie diversity of, trouble*--  for which Dr. 'Williams' Pink-Pills are-  a cure it may s 'so  be mentioned  that',  they restored. .Mrs.   Frank   Chase,   a-  dauguier-in-law     of    the   gentleman!,  above   referred   lo,    to    health    and;  strength after   11 other means had ap*  parently failed.    Mrs.   Chase _ says :���������  "I can scarcely tell   what my trouble  was, for even d actors could not agree  as to the natur   of it.    One said it.was   ,  cousumption of the stomach, while an-  '  other was equallj- emphatic in. declaring that it w ls   liver   trouble.    One ,.  thing I do know, and that is for years  I was a sick woman.    I know that I "  was afflicted with neuralgia, my blood -  was poor, and [ was subject to depress*  ing headaches."   My appetite was not  good at any tin <?. and the least exer- ���������'  tion left mo wc <k and  despondent.    A.   -  lady friend wh ��������� had been benefitted by  the use of Dr. ' /illiain's Pink Pills-ad- -  vised me to try them, and as they had*.  also cured my  father-in-law,  I deter-'  mined to do so,, mid I have much cause-  for rejoicing th it T did,   for -you   can.  easily see that iliey have made a well;  woman of me.    I took the pills steadily  for a couple of n on ths, and at the end:  of that time w?-; enjoying the blessing:  of good   healtr. " lc'' gives   me   much-  pleasure to be able to bear public tes-    ,  timony to the "ralue of this  wonderful  medicine."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by going to the root of the disease. They  renew and build up the blood; and  strengthen the nerves, thus driving  disease from th3 system.

(CONTINUED.)  lTrank Lamotte sits staring straight before him; sudden conviction seems to  have overtaken his panic-stricken senses.  Jasper Lamotte drums upon the table impatiently, looking moody and despondent.  "A variety of queer "things may seem  plain to you now," he says finally.  "Perhaps you realize the necessity for instant action of. somo sort."  Frank stirs   restlessly, und   passes   his  hand across his brows.  ���������   "I can't   realize   anything   fully,"   he  says, slowly.    "It's as well that'  Burrill  - did not live to know this.''  "Well! It's providential! We should not  have a chance;    as it   is, we   have one.  Do you   know   where   Burrill   kept   his  papers?"  "No."  "Who removed his personal effects?  .Were you present?"  "A-uredly.     There were no papers   of  value ro us upon tho body."  "���������  "Well, those   papers   must   be   found.  Once in our hands, we   are safe* enough  for tho present; but until we find   them  'we are not so secure.

"That is the word I used.   I must borrow the money."  "Indeed! Of whom?"  "Of Constance Wardour.-'  "What!"  "Why not, pray? Am T to withdraw  because you have been discarded? Why  should I not borrow from this tricky  'young lady? Curse her!"  i "Well!" rising shrwly, "she is under  ���������your roof at- this moment. Strike while  the iron is hot. Have you anything more  to say to-night?"  "No. You are too idiotic. Get some of  the cobwebs out of your brain, and tliat  scared look out of your face. One would  think that you, and not Heath, wero the  murderer of Burrill."  A strange look darts from the eyes of  Frank Lamotte.  "It won't be so decided by a jury," he  says, between his tshut teeth. "Curse  Heath, he is the man who, all along, has  stood in my way."  "Well, there's a strong likelihood that  he" will be removed from your path.  There, goi and don't- look so abjectly  ihopcless. We have nothing to do at present but to quiet Belknap. Good night."  j With lagging steps, Frank Lamotte as-  fcends   the   stairs ��������� and   enters   bis   own  Involuntarily, this cry escapes the lip?  of the watcher:���������  "My God! To think that two noble lives  must be blasted, because of that pitiful  worthless thing, tliat lies below."  'Ihe moments drag on heavily, her  thoughts gradually shaping, themselves  into a resolve, while she watches by the  bedside and waits the lvturn of Mrs. Lamotte. At last, she conies, and there is  -ah. added shade' of sorrow in her dark  eyes; Evan is very ill, she fears for his  reason, too.  "What has come upon my children,  Constance?" she asks, brokenly;, "even  Frank has changed for the worse."  "Poor Evan," sighs Constance,, thinking of his loyal love for Sybil; and thus  with her new resolve strong in her mind,  she says,  briefly:���������  "I must go to town at once, Mrs. Lamotte, and will return as soon as possible. Can you spare me without too much  weight upon yourself."  Without a question, Mi -. L.nnotte bids  Jier go; and very soon sue .>' YYving  swiftly toward W���������, behind the :-, i"uc!i !  Lamotte horses.  Straight to .Lawyer O'Meara she is  whirled, and by the time she roaches the  gate, she is as calm as an iceberg.  Coming down the steps is a familiar  form, that of her aunt, Mrs. Aliston.  Each lady seems a trifle disconcerted by  this unexpected meeting; neither is inclined to explain her presence there.  Mrs. Aliston appears the more disturbed  and startled of the two; she starts and  flushes, guiltily, at sight of her niece.  But, Constance is intent upon her  errand; she pauses long enough to inquire after her aunt's health, to report  that Sybil is much the same, and Evan  ill, and then she says:��������� ���������  '  "Is Mr. O'Meara at home, Aunt  Honor?"  "Yes. That is, I believe so," stammers  Mrs. Aliston.  "Then I must not detain you, or delay  myself; good morning, auntie;" and she  enters the house, leaving Mrs. Aliston  looking perplexed aud troubled.  Ushered into the presence of Mr.  O'Meara, Constance wastes no words.  "Mr. O'Meara," she begins in' hcrnlpst  straightforward manner, "I have jtist  come from Mapleton, where I have befc-u.  with Sybil since last night. This morning'^  Doctor Benoit horrified me by tolling me  that Doctor Heath has been arrested for  the murder of John Burrill."  Just hero the study door opens softly,  and a portly, pleasant'. faced gentleman  enters. He bows with easy self-possession,  and turns expectantly toward- O'Meara.  That gentleman performed the ceremony  of introduction.  "Miss Wardour, permit mc: Mr. a���������  Wedron, of the New York Bar.  Mr. Wed-  "And���������are there others?"-  "Another, Mis Wardour, is���������yourself."  "Myself!"  She bows-her face upon her hands, and  convulsive shudders shake her form'J She  sits thus so long that O'Meara becomes  restless, but Mr. Wedron sits calm, serene, expectant.  By and by she lifts her head, and her  eyes shine with the glint of blue steel.  "You are right, sir," she says in a  low, steady voice. "I can tell more than  is known. It may not benefit Doctor  Heath; 1 do not see how it can. Nevertheless, all that I can tell you shall hear,  and I only ask that you will respect such  portions of my story as are not needed in  evidence.. As for Mr. O'Meara, I know I  can trust him. And I believe, sir, that I  can rely upon you."  Mr. Wedron bows.gravely.  "I will begin by saying that Mr. "Vandyck, if he has withheld   anything   con-,  cerning Doctor Heath, has   acted   honorably in so   doing.    He   was   bound by a  how Frank Lamotte received the news ot  his sister's flight. ,  Then she paints in glowing, enthusiastic language, the interview with Evan  in the garden. She pictures his grief,  his rage, his plea that she will stand fast  as his sister's friend and champion. She  repeats his odd   language;   describes   his  promise, fronvwhieh  lease, him."  I   shall at once re-  Wed-  room. He locks the door with a nervous  hand,' and then" hurriedly lowers the  curtains. He goes to the mirror, and  gazes at his reflected self���������hollow, burning eyes, haggard checks, blanched lips.  !lthat twitch convulsively a mingled ex-  pression of desperation, horror, and dc-  .spair���������that is what lie sees, and the sight  ^does not serve to steady his nerves. He  turns away, with a curse upon the white  lips.  He flings himself down in a huge easy  chair, and dropping his chin upon his  breast, tries to think; but thought only  deepens the despairing horror and fear  Jupon his countenance. Where his father  sees one foe, Francis Lamotte sees ten.  He sees before him Jerry Belknap, private detective, angry, implacable, menacing, not to bo quieted. Ho sees Clifford  Heath, pale, stern, accusing. Constance  Wardour, scornful,menacing, condemning  'and consigning him to dreadful punishment;: The dead face of John, Burrill rises  before him, jeering, jibing, odious, seeming to share with him some ugly secret.  He passes his hand across his brow, anil  starts up suddenly.  I "Bah! he mutters, "this is no time to  dally; on every side I see a pitfall. Let  every man look to himself. If I must  play in my last trump, let me be prepared."  He takes from his pocket a bunch of  keys, and, selecting one of the smallest,  unlocks a drawer of his dressing case. He  draws forth a pair of . pistols and   exam-  iines them carefully. Then he withdraws  the charges from both weapons,and loads  one anew. The latter he conceals about  his person, and then takes up the other.  |l-fe hesitates a moment, and then loads  nthat also, replaces it in his hiding; place,  ���������closes and locks the drawer. Then he  breathes a long sigh of relief.  f ������������������'It's a deadly anchor to windward,"  'he mutters; turning away. "It's a last,  'jresort. Now'I have only to wait."  ron, my dear, is here in   the   interest   of  Doctor Heath."  A pair of searching gray eyes are turned  full upon the stranger, who bears the  scrutiny with infinite composure. She  bows gravely, and then scats herself opposite the two gentlemen.  "Mr. O'Meara," she says, imperiously,  ���������-1 want to hear the full particulars of  d;is affair, from the very first, up to the  ��������� resent moment."  The   two   professional   men   exchange  .iiccs.    Then   Mr.   Wedron  interposes:  ���������'������������������s:-; Wardour,"   he   says,   slowly, "wo  ���������   a-.'ting   for   Clifford   Heath,   in this  .a tor,   therefore,    I   must   ask, do you  .die as a friend   of   the   accused, or���������to  .(  vf" '  CHAPTER XXXV.  i. '  1    While    Frank   Lamotte,    in    his   own  chamber, is preparing himself for   emer-  ��������� gencies, Cousin nee Wardour stands by the  |)bedside of her unconscious friend,   struggling for  self   control; shutting her   lips  firmly    together,    clenching   her     teeth;  mastering her outward self, by the   force,  of her strong will; and   striving to bring  lithe chaos of   her   mind into like subjection.      Three facts stare her in the  face;  three ideas dance through her brain   and  ,'mingle themselves in a   confused   mass.  iCliflford Heath is in peril.      She can save  Ihim by betraying a friend   and   a  trust.  She loves him.  Yes, stronger than all, greater than all  his fact stands out; in this hour of  eril the truth will not be frowned down,  she loves this man who stands accused of  murder; she loves him, and, great heav-  ns! he is innocent, and yet, must suffer  or the guilty.  (What can she do?    What must she   do?  3he can not go to him;   she, by her own  ict, has cut off   all   friendly   intercourse  tween them.    But, something must be  one, shall be done.  Suddenly she   bends  down, and   looks  ong and earnestly into   the   face of   the  leeper.  The dark lashes rest upon cheeks  hat are pale as ivory; the face looks tor-  ture-otricken;    the beautiful   lips   quiver  With the pain of some dismal drearn.  te&timony  Again (lie gray eyes flash upon him.  I come as a friend of Doctor Heath,"  ,o sr.j's. haughtily; "and I ask only  h:c i^ known to all W���������, I suppose."  jir. Wedron conceals a smile of satis-  c:ion behind a smooth white hand;  "u ho draws a bundle of papers from  is pocket.  ������������������O'Meara," he says, passing them to  .ii-. colleague; "here are the items of the  e..se, as we summed them up last evening: please read them to Miss Wardour."  And he favors the little lawyer, with a  swift, but significant glance.  Drawing his chair a little nearer that  of his visitor, O'Meara begins, while the  portly gentleman sits in the background  and notes, lynx-like, every expression  that flits across the face of the listening  girl.  O'Meara reads on and on. The summing up is very comprehensive. From  the first discovery of ; the body, to the  last item of testimony before the coroner's  jury, and after that, the strangeness,  the apathy, the obstinacy of the accused,  and his utter refusal to add his testimony,  or to accuse any other. Utter silence falls  upon them as the reading ceases  Constance sits mute and pale as a  statue; Mr. Wcdron seems quite self-  absorbed, and Mr. O'Meara, glances  around nervously, as if waiting for a cue.  Constance turns her head slowly, and  looks from one to the other.  "Mr. O'Meara, Mr. Wcdron, you are to  defend Doctor Heath,you tell me?" They  both nod assent.  "And ��������� have you, as his counsel,  gathered no palliating proof? Nothing to  set against, tlyis niass of blighting circumstantial evidence?"  Mr. Wcdron leans forward, fastens his  eyes upon her face, and says gravely:  "Miss Wardour, all that can bo done for  Clifford Heath will be done. But���������the  case as it stands is against him. For  some reason he has lost courage. He  seems to place small value upon his life.  I believe that he knows who is the guilty  one, and that he is sacrificing himself.  Furthermore, I believe that there are  those who can tell, if they will, far more  than has been told concerning this case;  those who may withhold just the evidence  that in a lawver's hands will clear  Clifford Heath."  The pallid misery of her face is pitiful,  but it does not move Mr. Wedron.  "Last night," he goes on mercilessly,  '' Mr. Raymond "Vandyck sat where you  sit now, and I said to him what I now  say to you. Miss Wardour, Raymond  Vandyck knows more than he has told."  His keen eyes search her face, her own  orbs fall before his gaze. Then she lifts  them sudden, and asks abruptly:���������  "Who are the other parties who are  withholding their testimony?"  Again Mr. Wedron suppresses a   smile.  "Another   who   knows    more   than   he  chooses to tell is Mr. Frank Lamotte."  She starts perceptibly.  In obedience to a sign from Mr  lOii. o ..i������}ira prepars to write.  "You h.i." said, sir," addressing Mr.  Wedron, "that I may be able to say something which, if w uhh'-.d. would complicate this case. What do you wish to  hear?"  "Every thing, Miss Wardour, every  thing. All that you can tell concerning  your acquaintance with Clifford Heath���������  all that you havo seen and know concerning John Burrill; all that you can recall  of the sayings and doings of the Lamottes. And remember, the things that  may seem unimportant   or   irrelevant to  you, may be the very items that we lack  to complete what may be a chain of  strong evidence in favor of the accused.  Allow me to question you from time to  time, and, if I' seom possessed of too  much information ',concerning your xiri-  vato affairs, do not be too greatly astonished, but rest assured that all my re-,  searches have been made to serve another,  not to gratify myself." 0  "Where shall I begin, sir?'  "Begin where the first shadow of complication fell; begin at the   first word or  1 Seed of Doctor Heath's   that   struck you  ihs being in any way strange or peculiar."  She flushes hotly and begins her story.  She describes   her   first   impression of  Doctor   Heath,    touching   lightly    upon  their acquaintance   previous   to tho time  of the robbery   at   Wardour.    Then   she  describes,   very   minutely,    the first call  made'by Doctor Heath, after that  affair.  "One moment, Miss Wardour, you told  Doctor Heath all that you knew concerning the robbery."  "I did, sir;" coloring rosily.  "And you exhibited to him the vial of  chloroform and the piece of cambric?"  "I did."  "At this point you were  by callers, and Doctor Heath  abruptly?"  "Precisely, sir."  "Who were these callers?"  "Mr.- Lamotte and his son." ,,  "Had you any reason for thinking that  Doctor Heath purposely avoided a   meeting with these gentlemen?"  "Not at that time;" flushing  slightly.  "Go on, Miss Wardour."  She resumes her story, telling all* that  she can remember of the call,  of Frank's  return, and of Sybil's letter.    .  "About this letter, I would rather not  speak, Mr. Wcdron; it can not affect the  case."  "It does affect tho case," he replies  quickly. "Pray omit no. details gust  here.''  interrupted  left   rather  sudden change of manner: his declaration that he will find a,reason for Sybil's  conduct, that shall shield Sybil, and'be  acceptable to all.  Then she tells how the rumor that  Sybil had sacrificed herself for Evan's  sake grew and spread, and how the boy  had sanctioned the report. How he had  come to her the second time to claim her  promise, and announce '��������� the time for its  fulfillment.  "To-day," she .says, with moist eyes,  "Evan Lamotte liesjon a drunkard's bed;  liquor has been his curse. Morally he is  weaker than water; but lie has, under  all that'weakness, the elements that go  to make,a hero. All that he had, he  sacrificed for his sister. , Degraded by  drink as ho was, he could still feel his  superiority to the man Burrill; yet, for  Sybil's sake, to relieve her of his brutal  presence, Evan became his companion,  and passed long hours in the society that  he loathed."  "Ah!" ejaculates Mr. Wedron ;"ah-h-h!"  then he closes his lips, and Constance  resumes. *  She tells next how she became weary  of the search for the Wardour diamonds;  how she sought; to withdraw private detective Belknap; and Iioav that individual  had endeavored to implicate Doctor  Heath, and had finally accused him; how  she had temporized, and sent for officer  Bathurst; and how, during the three  days of waiting, she had sent Ray Vandyck to -watch over Clifford Heath. She  fiuishes her story without interruption,  carrying it irp to the very day of the  murder. Then she pauses, dreading further questioning.  But CM v.   Wedron   asks   no   questions,.  and makes no comment.    Ho- fidgets   in  his chair, and seems anxious Lo   end   tho  interview.  "Thank you, Miss Wardour," ho says,  rising briskly, "you have been an invaluable witness; and I feel like telling you,  that���������thanks to you, I hope soon to pub  my hand upon tho guilty party, and open  the prison doors for Heath."  She utters a low cry. c  ��������� "My God! What have I said!" sho cries  wildly. "Listen, sir; Clifford Heath must,  and shall, be free; but���������you must never  drag to justice the true culprit; you  never shall!"       '  She is on her feot facing Mr. Wcdron,  a look of startled defiance in her eyes.  He is gazing at her with the look of a  man who has discovered a secret. Suddenly he comes close beside her, aud  says, in low, significant tones:���������  "Let us understand each other; one or  two must sutler for this crime. Shall it  bo Clifford Heath, the innocent, or���������  Frank Lamotte?''  She reels and clutches wildly at a chair  for support  long  She resumes; telling tho story of that  day, of Clifford Heath's second  visit, and of the news of Svbil Lamotte's  flight.1  She tells how, at sunset, she opened  the strange' letter, and how, bewildered  and startled out of herself, she put it into  Clifford Heath's hands, and called upon  him to advise her.  Almost word for word she repeats his  comments, and   then she hesitates.  "Go on," says Mr. Wedron, impatiently; "what happened next?"  Next she tells of the sudden appearance  of the strange detective; and here  O' Meara seems very much interested, and  Mr. Wedron very little.  He does not interrupt her, nor display  much interest, until she reaches the  point in her narrative when she discovers the loss of Sybil's letter.  "Well!" he cries, as she hesitates once  more. "Goon! go on! about; that letter."  "Gentlemen," says Constance, .contritely, "here, if I could, I would'spare  myself. When Doctor Heath came, to  return the bottle borrowed by the detective, I accused him of taking the letter."  "What!" starting violently; "you suspected him?"  "I insulted him."  "And he���������"  "He resented the insult in the only  way possible to a gentleman. He accepted  it in silence, and turned his back upon  me."  "Ah! and since that time?"  "Since that time I havo received no  intimation that Doctor Heath is aware of  my existence."  "Ah-h-h!" ejaculates Mr. Wedron;  "and you have not found tho letter?"  "No. Its fate remains a mystery."  '' Do you sti 11 believe that Doctor Heath  could account for its disappearance, if  he would?"  "On sober second thought, I could see  no motive for taking the letter. I was  hasty in my accusation. I came to that  decision long ago."  "You were deeply grieved over the  mesalliance of Miss Lamotte?"  "She was my dearest friend;"  "Was?" inquiringly.  Constance pales slightly, but does not  correct herself.  "Miss Lamotte's strange marriage has  been since explained, I believe?''  "No, sir! not to  my satisfaction."  '' What! Was is not to save a scapegrace  brother?"  "Stop, sir! That scapegrace brother is  the one of all that family most worthy  your respect and mine. You wish me to  tell you of the family; let me begin with  Evan."  Beginning where she had dropped her  story, Constance goes on. She outlines  the visits of the-two detectives; she  tells  You have  Bathurst, the  Doctor Heath,  W���������; he   may  "Frank Lamotte!" she gasps, "Frank,  Oh! No! No! It must not be him! Oh!  You clo not understand; you can not."  Sho pauses, affrighted and gasping.  Then her lips close suddenly, and she  struggles fiercely to regain her composure.  After a little she turns to Mr. O'Meara.  saying:���������  heard me say that Mr._  detective, and friend of  was, not long since, in  be here still; I do not  know. But he must be found; ho is the  only man who can do what must be  done. For I repeat, Doctor Heath must  be saved, aud tho true criminal must, not  be punished. My entire fortune is at  .your command; find this detective, for  my hands are tied; and he must, he  must, find a way to save both guilty and  innocent.''  "This is getting too deep for me,  Wedron," says O'Meara, when the door  has closed behind Constance. "What  does it lead up to? For I take it your  tactics mean something."  Mr. Wcdron laughs, a low, mellow  laugh.  "Things are shaping themselves to  my liking," he says, rubbing his hands  briskly.. "We are almost done floundering, O'Meara. Thanks to Miss Wardour,  I know where to put my hand when the  right time comes."  "I don't understand."  "You will very soon. Now hear a  prophecy: Before to-morrow night,  Clifford Heath will send for you, and  lay before you a plan for his defence.  He will manifest a sudden desire to live."  CHAPTER   XXXVI.  Late that night a man is walking  slowly up and down the little footpath  that leads from the highway, just opposite Mapleton, down to the river and  close past that pretty, white boat house  belonging to the'Lamotte domain.  He is very patient, veiy tranquil in his  movements, and quito unconscious that,  crouched iu the shadow, not far away, a  small figure notes his every action.    v  Presently a second form emerges from  the gloom that hangs over the gates of  Mapleton. and comes down toward the  river. Just beside the boat house it pauses  and waits the man's approach.  ���������' The new comer is a woman. The night  is not so dark but that her form is distinctly visible to the hidden watcher.  "Well," says the man, coming close  beside her, "I am here���������rmadam."  "Yes," whispers the woman. "Have  you���������" she hesitates.  "Accomplished my task?" he finishes  the sentence. "Have you not proof up  yonder that the work is done?"  The woman trembles from head to foot,  and draws farther away.  "I am only waiting to receive what is  now due me," the man resumes. "You  need have no fears as to to the future;  like Abraham, you have been provided  with a lamb for the sacrifice."  Again a shudder shakes the form of  the woman, but she does not speak..  "I must trouble you to do me a favor,  Mrs. Burrill," the man goes on. "It is  necessary that I should see the honorable  Sir. Lamotte. So, if you will be so good  as to admit me to Mapleton to-night,  under cover of   this   darkness,   and con  trive an interview without disturbing thft--  other inmates,   you   will   greatly   oblige  me; but first my two thousand dollars) if  you please."  With a sudden movement ^he   woman .  flings back the cloak that has been drawn  close about her face, and strikes with her  hand upon the timbers of the boat house.  Tnere is a cracking sound, a flash of '  light,, and then the slow blaze of a parlor -  match. ���������  -   By its light they gaze upon each other,  and then the man mutters a curse.  "Miss Wardour I"      '  "Mr. Belknap, it is I."  '   There,is a moment's silence, and   then  she speaks again:���������  "You aro disappointed, Mr.   Belknap;  you- expected to, meet another who \itould  pay you your price for���������you   know what.  You will not see that   other ,one; sho is-  hovering between life and death, and her-  dclirious ravings   havo  revealed   you  in    '  your true character.    You   may   wonder"  how   I   havo   dared' thus   to  brave an  assassin, a blackmailer.    I   ani not reckless.    If I do not return in ten   minutes,  safe and sound, tho   boat 'house   will bo '  speedily searched and  you, Mr. Belknap,  will be hunted as you may   havo hunted  others.    Not   long since you mado terms  with    mc,   you   attempted     coercion,   I  might say   blackmail; to-night,    it  is in  my power to bridle' your   tongue,   and I  tell you tliat,   unless   you   leave W��������� at  once you   will   find   yourself   a resident  hero against  your   will.    Consider   your  .  business in W��������� at an end.' This is not ������  safe place for you.''  With the last words on her lips, she  turns and' speeds swiftly back toward  Mapleton, and Jerry Belknap, private "  detective, stands transfixed, gazing at tho  spot from which she litis fled, and muttering curses not good to hear.  He makes' no attempt   to   follow   her.  ,  Ho recognizes the fact that he is . baffled,  and;    for   the   timo   at   least,   defeated.  Grinding out curses as ho goes, he turns  his steps toward W���������.  , Then, from out the shadows of tho  boat house, a small bundle uncoils itself,  stands erect', and then moves forward as  if in pursuit. '  '.  But, something else rises up   from the  ground, directly in the path of this small  shadow; a long,    slender   body pdisplays-   .  itself, and a voice whispers,   close to the  eai-s of the smaller watcher:���������   /  "Remain   hero,    George,    and    keep  a..  close eye on the house.    I-will  look after  him."  Then the shadows  separate; the, taller  one follows in   the   wako   of tho discon-    '  solate detective.  Tho other, scaling the park pallngs-  likc a cat, vanishes in tho darkness that  surrounds Mapleton.  The reflections of Jerry  Belknap,    private detective, as   he   goes,   with moody  brow, and tightly compressed lips, across-  the pretty river bridge, and back   toward-  his hotel, are far from pleasant.  ,   H������ is a shrewd man, and has engineered  nmny a knotty ease to a successful issue,  thereby   covering   himself    with    glory.  This   was   in   tho   past, however; In the  days when he had been regularly attached  to a strong and reliable detective agenoy.  For tact, energy, ambition, ho had no *  peer; but one day his career had been-  nipped in tho bud.  A young man, equally, talented, and  far more honorable, had caused his overthrow; and yet had saved him from tho-  worst that might have befallen him.  And, Jerry Belknap, had stopped down  from an honorable position, and, determined to make his power, experience, - *������  and acknowledged abilities, serve him as-  the means of supplying his somewhat extravagant needs, had resolved himself  into a "private detective," and betaken  himself to "ways that are"dark."  "There's something at the bottom of  this business that I don't understand,"  mused he as he paced onward; little  thinking how soon he is to be enlightened on this and snndry, other subjects.  "I never felt more sanguine of ' bringing"  a crooked operation to a successful termination; and I never yet made such an  abject failure. I shall make it my business to find out, and at oricc, what is  this power behind the throne! So,' according to Miss Wardour, may Satan fly away  with her, I am not to approach the Lamotte's, I am to lose my reward, I am to  retire from tho field like a whipped cur.  Miss Wardour, we shall see about that."  "Call me for the early train going-  west," he says to the night clerk, on.  reaching the hotel; "let mo sec, what is  the hour?".  " The western train leaves very early,  sir���������at four twenty. Then you won't bo  here to witness Burrill's funeral? It will  call everybody out. The circumstances  attending the man's life and death will  m,i,ke it an event for W���������."  "It's an 'event' that won't interest  inc. If I have been rightly-informed, tho  man is better placed in his coffin, than  he ever was in his boots. I shall leave  my baggage here���������all but a small valise.  I expect to return to W-��������� soon. If anything occurs to change my plans, I will  telegraph you and havo it forwarded."  At this moment the door of the office  opens and closes noisily, and a man  comes rather unsteadily toward them. It  is Smith, the book-peddler, and evidently  much intoxicated.  "Hallo, Smith," says the night olerk,  jocosely, as Mr. Belknap turns away,  "you seem to have rheumatism, and I  suspect vou find more fun than business  in W���������."  "Town ain't much on literature." retorts Mr- Smith, amiably, "but it's the  devil and all for draw poker. I've raked  in a pot, and I'm going on to the next  pious town; so  'If you are waking, call me early.'  Old top, I'm going west."  CHAPTER XXXVII.  Early on the following morning, there  was unusual stir about Mapleton. John  Burrill was to be buried that day, and  the sad funeral preparations were going  on.

[The Biblo says it is not good for  ���������'. man t) be alone, but never says it is not'  ���������.good for woman to ' be alone, and the  simplef fact is' that many women who are  harnoj'scd (or lifo in the. marriage relation vould be a thousandfold better off  if thef- were'alono.  i Unfortunate "Wives. ,  Who are these men who year after year  hanglaround hotels and engino houses  -and (boater doors, and come in and out  . to bother busy clerks and merchants and  meclianics, doing nothing, when there is  plenty to do?

If tho statistics  -of any our cities could be taken on this  ���������ubjisct, you would'find that a vast multitude of women hot only support thein-  selvds, but masculines. A great logion of  men amount to nothing, and a woman  by marriage manacled to one of these  nonentities needs condolence. A woman  standing p-itside the'marriage relation is  ������everal hundred thousand times better off  than a woman badly married.

So  ono lay, aftor the vulture declared he  woufl give up his carnivorous habits and  tfease longing for blood of flock and herd,  At an altar of rock covered with moss and  Hche^, the twain were married, \a bald  headal eaglo officiating, the vulture saying, jwith all my dominion of earth and  *ky I'theo endow and promise to love and  oberiavtill doath do us part." But one  day tie dove in her fright saw the vulture Irisy at a carcass and cried: "Stop"  that I JDid you not promise me that you  ���������would quit your carnivorous and filthy  habits if I married.you?" "Yes,"said-tho  vulture, "but if you don't like my way  you can leave," and with one angry  e'froko of .the beak and another fierce  clutch of the claw tho vulture left the  dove-'eyeless and wingless and lifeless.

When young women shall make up their  niinds at tho start that .masculine companionship is not a necessity in order to  happiness, and that there is a strong  probability that thGy will have to fight  the battle of life alone, they will be getting the timber ready for their own fortune and their saw and ax and plane  sharpened for its construction, since  "every wise woman buildeth her house."  Should Learn Self Support.  As nobody, ought to be brought up  without learning, some business at whioh  he could earn' a livelihood, so no girl  ought to be brought up without learning  th������ science of self-support.   The difficulty-  is that many a family goes sailing on tne  high tides of suscess and the husband and  father depends on his own health and  acumen for the welfare of his household.  i But one day he gees his feet wet, and' in  'i three days pneumonia has closed his life,  < and the daughters' are' turned out on a  cold world to earn broad, and ' there is  nothing practical tliat they can do. The  friends corns in and hold consultation.  "Give music lessons," says ah outsider.  Yes. that Is a useful calling, and if you  havo great genius for it go on in that  direction. But there are enough music  teachers now starving to death in all our  towns and cities to occupy all the piano  stools and sofas and chairs and front door  stops of tho city. Besides that, the daughter, has been playing only for amusement  and is only at the foot of the ladder,' to  the top of which a great multitude of  mastors on piano and harp and flute and  organ have climbed.  "Put the bereft daughters' as saleswomen in the stores," says another adviser. But'thore thoy must compete with  salesmen of long experience or with men  who havo served an. apprenticeship in  commerce and who began as shopboys at  10 years of ago. Some kind hearted dry  goods man, having known tho father,  now gone, says, "We are not in need of  any,more help just now, but send your  daughters to my store and I will do as  well by them'as.possible." Very soon the  question comes up,., Why do not the fe-  -male employes of that establishment get  as much wages as the male employes?  For the simple reason in many cases the  femalos were suddenly flung by misfortune behind that counter, while the males  have from tho day they left the publio  school been learning tho business.  How is this evil to be cured? Start clear  back in tho homestead and teach your  daughters that life is an earnest thing,  and that there is a possibility, if not a  strong probability, that thoy will have to  fight the battle of life, alone. Let every  father and mother say to their daughters,  "Now, what wo Id you do for a livelihood if what I now own were swept awajj  by financial clis iSter or old age or deatlj  should end my cireer?" -   * ' .'/  '/Well, I could paint on pottery and d>  such decorative work."

I, William Wal-ker, of the City of Hamilton, do solemnly- declare that I reside at  84 Colborne Street, and am employed as  passenger brakeroan on the G. T. K.  I suffeied intensely with what is called  Railway Kidneys and also had Sciatica,  which became so severe that I had to leave  my work. I had medical treatment, was  fly blistered and had hot irons applied, but  without success. I took a great quantity of  inadicine, and when I began the, use of  Ryckman's Kootenay Cure I thought it was  only another experiment and could hardly  trust my own senses when I began to get  better. The pain 'gradually left me, my  kidneys began to act with regularity and  promptness, my appetite returned, and now  I am cured. I am forty years of age, have  been with the ft. T. R. for twelve years, and  am now able to work every clay, thanks to'  Kootenay Cure, which I have pleasure in-  recommending to everyone suffering with 1  Rheumatism or Kidney Trouble, and especially to railroad men, who are all more or  less subject to disordered Kidneys.

'My advice to all girls and all unmarried, women, whether in affluent homes  or in homes where most stringent economies are grinding, is to learn to do some  kind of work that tho world must have  while the world stands. I am glad to see  a marvelous change for the better and  that women have found out that there  are hundreds of practical things that a  woman can do for a living if she begins  soon enough, and that men have been  compelled to admit it. You and I can remember when the majoirty of occupations  wore thought inappropriate for women,  but our civil war came, and the hosts of  men went forth from north and south  and to conduct the business of our cities  during the patriotic absence women .were  demanded by the tens of thousands to  take the vacant places, and multitudes of  women, who hadbieen hitherto supported  by fathers and brothers and sons, were  compelled from that time to tako care of  themselves, from that time a mighty  change took place favorable to female employment.  Appropriate Occupations.  Among the occupations appropriate for  woman I place tho following, into   many  of which she has already entered   and all  the others she   will   enter: Stenography,  and you may find   her   at   nearly all the  roportorial   stands   in   our    educational,  political and religious meetings.    Savings  banks, tho work clean and honorable, and  who so great a right   to  toil   there, for a  woman founded the first savings   bank���������  Mrs. Priscilla Wakefield?    Copyists,   and  thore is hardly a   professional   man  that  docs not need the sorvico of   her penmanship and   as   amanuensis    many    of   the  greatest books of our day have   boon dic-  tatcd for her wri'ing.    There   they are as  florists   and   confectioners    and     music  teachers and bookkeepers, for which  they  are   specially   qu Jailed   by   patience and  ;  accuracy, and wo id engraving, in   which  the   Cooper   institute   has   turned out so  many qualified, and telegraphy, for which  sho is specially p-epnrod. as   thousands of  tho telegraphic offices will testify.

S solemnly declare that I a"tn at present  em-  jloyed   as  night   baggageman   master   Grand  f runk Station, Hamilton. I was troubled forover  twenty years wiLh Lumbago, and at times was  'so'severely afflicted that I could not walk. Twice  _"j'i  fcJ/a year during the time the attacks were very  |������_K intense, but the pain-was constantly with me,  and for about ten years I couid not stand straight  for a longer period than about fifteen minutes,  when I would be compelled to lean over or stoop  forward in order to relieve myself.  After using nine bottles of "Ryckman's Kootenay Cure I am,free from Lumbago and consider  myself completely cured. I told Mr. Ryckman  that if I felt no pains for one year after taking  his medicine, that I would give him a testimonial,  and as the time expires this week, I came to him  .without solicitation to give this sworn declaration.'' I conscientiously consider Kootenay Cure  one of the greatest and best remedies for back or  kidney trouble ever used by mankind, and wish  my case to become generallyknown, as I doctored  with'five different medical men and was told by  some of them that they could do nothing for me;  others said, "Go to bed and stay until I1 got  better," but that would have been giving up all  hope and confessing myself a homeless invalid.  Kootenay Cure was my salvation, and I believe  it only right that medical men, universities and  hospitals should use the remedy extensively.  Sworn to before Wm. J.

Turn your attention from the  embroidery of fine slip'pevs, of which there  is a surplus, and make a useful shoe.  Expend the time in which you adorn a  oipar case in learning how to make a  good, honest loaf of bread.

Much of the time spent in young  ladies' seminaries in studying what are  called the "higher branches" might hotter bo expended in teaching them something by which thoy could support themselves. If you are going to be teachers, or  if you have so much'assured .-wealth that  you can always dwell in those high ro-  gions, trigonometry of course, metaphysics of course, Latin and Greek and Gorman and French and Italian of course,  and a hundred other things of course, but  if you are not expecting to teach, and  your wealth is not established beyond  misfortune, after you have learned tho  ordinary brandies take hold of that; kind  of study that will pay in dollars and  cents in case you are thrown on your own  resources. Learn to do something better  than anybody else.  "No, no!" says some young woman.  "I will not undertake anything so un-  romantic and commonplace as that." An  excellent .author writes that after he had,  in a book, ar<rued for eilioiunoy in womanly work in order to success, and posi  tive apprenticeship hy way of preparation,  a prominent chemist advertised that; ho  would teach a e!n.-s of women to become  druggists and anuUie'iavio-; if thoy would  go th route h an .ippre^ueoship as 'men do,  and a printer vaun.',!'Y--od that he-would  take a class of wonKa; e-i learn the printer's trado   if   they   would.go through an  apprenticeship as men do, and how many,  according to the account of the author,  do you suppose applied to become skilled  in the druggist and printing business?

Throw  the   whole   responsibility   upon   us, the  pastors, who   are   constantly   hearing of J  young women in all these oities who, un-1  qualified by th}er previous luxurious sur-j  roundings for the   awful   struggle of life  into   which   they * have   been     suddenly!  hurled, seemed to have nothing left-them  but   a   choice   between   starvation    and  damnation.    There   they   go, along   the (  street 7 o'clock in the   wintry   mornings  through the slush and storm to the place  where they shall   earn: only half enough  for subsistance,   the   daughters   of  once  prosperous   merchants,    lawyers,   clergymen, artists, bankers and capitalists, who  brought up their   children   under the infernal delusion that, it was not  high tone  for women to learn a   profitable   calling.  Young'women,   take ������������������ this;' affair in your  own hand' and let there bean insurrection  in all prosperous families   on   the part of  the- daughters   of   this   day, demanding  knowledge   in   occupations  and styles of  business by which they inay be their own  defense   and   their   own   support   if   all  fatherly   and   husbandly   and   brotnerly  hands forover fail them.   I have seen two  sad sights, the   one   a   woman in all the  glory of her young life, stricken   by   disease, and in a'weok lifeless in'  a homo of  which she had been   the   pride. .������������������ As   her  hands were folded over the still heart and  her eyes closed for the   last   slumber and  she was taken out amid the lamentations  of kindred and   friends   I   thought   that  was a sadness immeasurable   But I have  soon   something, compared   with 'which  that sceno   was   bright and   songful.    It  was a young   woman   who   had been all  hor days amid wealthy   surroundings   by  tho visit of death and bankruptcy   to tho  household   turned   out   on   a-cold world  without ono lesson about how to got food  or shelter and into tho awful whirlpool of  city lifo, where   strong   ships    havo gone  down, and for 20 years not one word has  been heard from   her.    Vessels   went out  on the Atlantic ocean looking. for. a shipwrecked craft that was left alone and for-  Bakon on the sea a few weeks beforo writh  the idea of bringing   it   iuto    port.    But  who shall ever bring   again into tho harbor of peace   and    hope   and heaven that  lost womanly immortal,   driven   in what  ���������tempest,   aflame    in    what conflagration,,  sinking into what abyss? O.God, help!  O  Clirisc, rescue!
