I  MY HEART'S DARLING  BY W. HEIMBUEG.  Hortense stood up and look com-  passionatclj' down upon her.  "No, Hortensc, no!" cried Lucie,  "do not ask me,to do that! I dare  not!"'  "But, dear heart, I do not wish  to tear you away from him." She  drew nearer to ,her. "Only let,, me  say one thing to you at this moment: Whatever you may decide, ,in  ��������� any situation in your life, in any necessity, count on me; wherever I am,  there will always be a place for you;  do not forget this!" -    0  She rose, went to the-furthest window, drew the curtain, and sat down  quietly with a book, leaving the girl  to her own thoughts.  "Apropos," she said,'after a pause,  "what about the journey? Grandpapa was very much pleased with  the idea." <     -  ,.���������"1���������il can not be,  nortense."

"Without you -it would be no pleasure to me."  r Now il<was Ivucic who ,sprun'g up  and came over to Hortcnse. "If I  had not yo'u," she sobbed, passionately. 4 "If il���������were not for you���������  Do not leave me!", >  Th'e rest of the afternoon she sat  by Hortensc; the latter read aloud;  but'when she looked up,,"Lucie's eyes  came back from some corner into  which she had been staring vacantly.  "But Lucie!"     .  "Oh,  I am    listening,     Hortense,"  she  said,   smiling at  the young bar-  , oness,  and.  Inking her- hand; '"go  on  reading."     In  the  middle   of  a sentence-'  she    sprung  up.     "Adieu,     I  must go!"  "Where?"  -,    "To the'new house.    Farewell!"  She  cast    an  anxious  look  at the  black  marble clock,   and with trembling hands put on her hat.  "Ah,    i    quite forgot;  he is waiting."  Hortense looked at her quietly.  "Well,  child, what if he does wait  a few minutes?" ' -   7   .  ' But Lucie    was - already hurrying  lie  did not notice  to meet hur.

Dr.    Adler    ,in     tlie  meantime had  . gone at the appointed .time  to   -his  7 new possession.  It lay in the centre  -of the town     behind a tolerablj'-  high  wall     which   borp'cred  on  the street  instead of  the usual house-front, and  was   surrounded   by  a   little   garden,'  making   it    look  like  a little,green  oasis  among  tho  streets  and  houses.  Some-conservative old burgher had,  at   the     time      when    the     railroad  brought in a small excitement about  building,   been  unable   to  bring himself to give up his garden in spite of  the high      prices  oii'ered for  building  sites;  and he     had lately died.    The  time for high   Prices  had  passed,   as  is    so    often tthe  case in the world,  and Br. Adler found it would not be  impossible  for  him  to    become    tho  possessor  of'the little piece  of land.  The  narrow  wooden   door   in     the  wall    .had     been  taken  away and  a  neat     little     trellis   gate   allowed   a  look from the passers  both at house  and    garden.       I-Je   stood a moment  and looked through the grating as if  he   were  a   stranger.     Rubbish ,  and  stones,   lime  and     mortar were still  lying  about from  the  building,    but  the  walls  of the- little house    shone  out white and clear from behind the  shrubbery,   and  the windows  seemed  to   look  at     him   ur  such ,a  friendly  way.     lie     opened    the  gate  slowly  and went up the middle path,  looking  about him as  if expecting   some  one,   as  if  seeking    something,     and  looking very happy.  The   house  door,   which   opened  on  the   gable    cud,   wy.s   shut.     As     he  still   kept   looking     around   him     he  drew the key out of his pocket    and  stepped    in;   his   footsteps   resounded  in  the empty hall.     Again  he stood  still,   thinking,  and  a winning,  kindly  smile spread  over  his  face;     over'  there through the open door a white  porcelain  stove  seemed  to  wink    at  him,   and  over yonder  was   tlie     old  proverb  in   Gothic      letters,     "One's  own  hearth  ia  worth     much    gold."  Ho., went nearer,   leaned  against   the  frame of. the kitchen door,  and look-  .-ed thoughtfully about him.    Then he  turned  and   went   into  a medium-:';i/.-  ���������ed   room   next   the  kitchen     intended  for   a   dining-room.        In   the   middle  stood     a   large     round   table.'    The  tAvo   smaller  rooms   he   had , reserved  ���������for   himself������������������an   office   and      waiting-  room. .   Again   he   stood   and   looked  out of the     corner     window at    the  stone ' steps     which     led  up   to  the  front   door.      "One's   own   house     is  like a living thing.     We now belong,  t,o.gcuier,     we live    together,     come  what may,"  it seemed  to say.    And  the man's thoughts Hew into the future.      Would  happiness   come     with  them    .over    that     threshold?       Will  contentment    dAvoll    with    us   here?  Contentment,     and   God's   sweet  gift  of peace?     His  heart  felt  very     tender   at   that     moment.      Under     the  trees   over  there he  saw  in  imagination   a  lovely  fair-haired   wife,   rosy  ���������children,     and  quiet,   peaceful  happi-  nt-ss.     He  passed  his   hand   over his  eyes;   there she stood in reality in a  light summer dress, her eyes .fixed on  the  house  door,   but not looking as  he  had just  imagined  her.     The  delicate features had a troubled,    anx  ious  expression,  it,  but went 'out  come!"   he' said,  now our home."  She  gave  him her- hand hastily.  "Js your aunt,   here?"     and as he  said   "No,"   she  remained     standing  and hesitating.  "I thought as we two are to live  here, we, could best. arrange about  the rooms ourselves. I' do not care  about the interference of other people." said he,'and 'stepped aside to  let her go through the door. "You  alone shall decide everything:"  They both stepped into the house.  "See, the portals of your  are open," said he,  kitchen. , "Will yo.u  She had remained  middle of, the hail;  shook her head.  > "Well, then, ,we will begin with  the upper'story." ������  Obediently she went up the broad  staircase and entered a perfectly empty room. The windows looked out  toward the back; high trees before  the windows made an almost uncanny twilight in the room. Through  their branches one could look over'  a. small grass-plot to the quiet, slow  little river that was here the  boundary ' of the garden 'and' then  meandered through the town. It  seemed as'if she should suffocate in  the low little room. She could not  find a word to say.' -   -  "Does it please you?" hclaskecl. -  ''Yes," she'said, 'in'a faint voice,  lie stepped up to' her, and us ho  saw her standing so, with her head  turned away from him, her - little  hand laid tremblingly -_ on the win-1  clow-sill, i��������� 'seemed as if the '"man,  generally - so quiet, was stirred by  passion here in this home-like, quiet  little place,, where the happy future  seemed to smile at 'him out of every  corner in the house- and every - leaf  in. the garden. He drew 'the- girl  into his-'arrns, and'kissed her'on'the  mouth in a passionate "way he had  never done before.  She pushed him' back as. if hurt  by it. .      A '   '  " "Lucie," he ' said, reproachfully,  and bent' down to look in her face.  He drew back alarmed at her deathly paleness. ,"What is'the matter  with-you? Are yo'u-ill?"  "No."  "Then 'you are suffering mentalby.  Why do you not' speak out,, Liicie?  What is the hialler? Tell me. ' You  are frightfully  changed   the last few  inus xogetner to ttie street, and the  little garden- gate closed' behind  them; and just-at. this moment the  clouds ,,parted and the setting 'sun  threw a rosy light over house and  garden, so that it looked like a  fairy < home.  They, both saw it. 'They stood  there as if an angel had driven them  out of Paradise. Perhaps , at , this'  moment���������if she .had but looked at  him!

So she sat down in one of ,thc armchairs alone in '"the twilight, her  aching head resting against the  back," and a ' confusion of sad  -thoughts coursed through her brain.  What had she done?

"Don't have to sell no more papers today 'less' I wants to! That's what I  calls bein' a millionaire!"  It  was really,  however,  the  mendicants whom .she had   meant to  favor  /that morning.    She knew them all and  had pitied them a score of times���������those  miserable creatures  who  haunted  the  same street places day-after day.    She  "knew that the ncxt'oue she met would  be an old man and his wife, who stood  -���������there arm in arm through every change  of weather.    A little soberly she. went  up to the old couple and laid a shining  -quarter   in   each   of   the* outstretched  hands.  As she 'escaped from their peering  eyes and fervent blessings she encountered a friend. '"Good morning," she  bowed.  But Mrs. narrower was not to be put  off with such a-cursory greeting. She  was a member of the' Associated Bureau of Charities, and she bad seen  Miss Pemberton almsgiving.  V y"My doar," .she said robukjngly, do^  tnining, the girl' in the middle; .of the  sidewalk, "you really oughtn't to waste  your money like that."  "I. suppose not," laughed Miss. Pemberton. ;  '"They are not deserving: truly not."  her .'.'friend insisted. '���������After tho Italian  woman farther down street, who sits  all day with' a drugged child on her  knee, they are the greatest frauds in  the city." 7  "I-suppose so." said Miss Pemberton  again, aloud. To herself she thought  wickedly, "What would she say if she  knew it was 50 cents?"  Mrs. narrower spoke very seriously.  "It is just such as you tb.-it make the  trouble," she said. "You give indiscreetly. You are eucouragcrs of pauperism and crime."  All Miss- Pemberton's dimples broke  outrebellious!}-. She looked very unrepentant.  "But. you see." she cried merrily,  stretching her hand to the,1 other woman  in farewell���������"you see. you don't understand. I'm not normally such a wicked  person.    Today it's different.    I'll tell  you about it some time.   Goodby!" -  She was gone with, a Hash of a smile  that showed thorough enjoyment of the  situation. It lasted until she stood in  front of the Italian woman with the  drugged child on her knees and let another of the new quarters fall with a  soft, deliberate thud into thei baby's  lap.  The little black violet vender, who  never by chance has a flower less than  forty-eight hours old; the patriotic'musician who bestirs the feet of the pass?  ing throng to keep time with the cornet, the legless man who sits on a small  plat form and wheels himself incessantly up and 'down the sidewalk and the  blind woman who sings plaintive English ballads the day long became, all of  them, Miss Pemberton's beneficiaries.  As her velvet purse gradually emptied  itself into their hands her face' grew  fuller of pleasure.. It was a sunburst  of a face when Barton met it at Twelfth  street.      " ��������� <  ' "May I walk up with you ?" he asked,  as he released her hand, in the tone of  a man who is sure of his answer.  "Indeed,   yes,",   she    said"   happily.

Her ��������� quarter  tinkled1 into his tin cup "just as some  person took his arm on tlie oth'erf side,  and she went back to������Barton with a  look of contentment-on her,face.

"If you please, Lady Bountif ul,"-J said  a-, courteous' voice^beh'ind  her," "can't.  you spare a bit for another old man?"  Miss Pemberton turned, laughed and'  put .her hand into the one that was held  out to her.  ��������� "You shall, have it for a lucky piece,"  she answered. "It's the very last one  of them." -    '   '  "What does all this mean?" demanded  ���������the old friend who stood there, looking  at the silver she had left on his palm.  "Why this sudden welling out of human kindness and human help?"  They all laughed.  "You see, it's a celebration," explained the girl hesitatingly.  "Yes," supplemented Barton, "whether you know it or not, old friend, today  is a great day." * ^  The two young people looked at one  another, and Miss Pemberton's cheeks  went as pink as the rose in her hat.  "Ah," said the old friend with a glim-  ^mer of comprehension. "How stupid 1  am! Barton, my boy"���������there was a(  sterling ring of pleasure,, in his voice  and he took'the young fellow's hand in  a hearty grip���������"I truly congratulate  you.-- I;don't know of any two people  in the world who are better suited to  each other"���������  Miss Pemberton glanced around consciously at the passersby.

DON'TS  FOP.  GiRLS:  How  Snakes  Fascinate.  The cobra of the Cape fascinates  birds by coiling itself on a branch,  erecting its head and swinging to and  fro. Sundowner states that the snake,  will go on "fascinating",, and keeping  the bird twittering"aIid"umible,toDleave  the tree in which it is "for hours',' and  that if the bird is driven away it comes  back. This may be a '���������yarn,?' but from  the, curious fascination which nonter-  rifying objects, such as "lark glitters,"  have for some birds and their apparent  inability to resist hovering around the  lure the far greater mesmerizing power  of the"1 serpent may be , conjectured.

One season the keeper of an English  park made a pet of a. young cock,  which became so completely tamed that  even after taking up his abode in the  cover he would, at, the, familiar call,  cautiously emerge, compare the general  appearance of the man with the voice  and, being satisfied as to his identity,  walk quickly toward him ready for the  usual frolic. The keeper would imitate  that peculiar whirring sound of the  bird and make a sidewise lunge. At  the same time the young pheasant  would raise his wings and. dart for-  .ward and backward before his advancing and retreating .'-opponent; audi  watching ,his chance, dive at, the keeper's hat and knock it upon the ground,  then, turning swiftly, make for the cover, his vanishing figure presenting a  ridiculous appearance of 'inward'..and  stifled laughter.  This same cock, which was rather remarkable for the unusual expanse of  white round his neck, afforded, the  keeper much amusement one day in a  conversation with the cowman, who  wanted to.know if all that white was  "natural." "No." Taylor replied, taking advantage of the other's ignorance;  "I catch him every Saturday night and  change his collar." "There," exclaimed  the exultant 'cowman.

This'wonderful book, written in heaven and bound in satin,*- jewels and  gold; -was . communicated to Mohammed at different times, during 'a period  of twenty-three years. This was done,  according 'to Mohammedan belief, either by Gabriel in human shape or by  God himself.

God appeared either "veiled or  unveiled during Mohammed's waking  hours or during dreams at night."  Fvoi>iiaeiTiity.  Crawford���������Why do lovers-sit'and sit  and sit in blissful silence?

An observer of a statistical turn of  mind made an inventory of his hostess'  reception room while waiting for her  appearance and noted forty-seven  wholly useless "ornaments." the majority of which were most inartistic as  well. The fever for possession- of the  cheap and unconsidered desire for "art"  has converted ; otherwise agreeable  rooms into'little more than curiosity  shops and auction rooms. Before placing any ornament in a room it would  be well for the owner to put to it and  herself three questions: "-Why is this  placed here?" "What idea does it stand  for?" and "Isn't its room, just simple,  unobtrusive space, more desirable than  the object itself?"  V       Ancient   Coins.  .

McCIure Company '<������  Edyth was sitting in one of the comfortable chairs of a parlor ear as the  train pulled out of the New Haven  station. She was regretting the short  halt there when a newcomer, .who had  planted his traps on the floor near the  large armchair facing her, bowed.  Edyth thought it'was an apology for  having upset her valise with his golf  sticks and returned tho salutation.  The one second sufficed to show her  it was the same jolly, broad shouldered  chap she had seen on the platform with  a crowd of Yale boys. They both bent  to pick up her valise when she heard  him say, while his eyes twinkled with  suppressed, fun:  "I'm going to, talk to you until your  station comes, so you'd better make believe you know me."  '   -   Edyth looked up indignantly, but she  could detect no disrespect in his face,  ,   just  pure  rollicking  college  boy  fun,  ���������    ready for a lark. r <  "Suppose I ,don't want to ���������talk to  ' you?" she challenged.  0'r '"You needn't, just,as long as you'll  ���������let' me talk to you. I've worked like a  nigger the whole term, and" I can't'  waste a moment' beginning to have a  bully time."   . '  "What would the people on the car  think if they knew I've never seen you  before?" she demanded:  "They won't know if you smile at me  and go right on chatting," he assured  her. , - ,       ,        (- -   '  "But you know it isn't proper," and  I  promised  Miss' Stanton  to  be  cau-  'tious' if   she  let  me  go  alone."     She  ������������������ .smiled bewitchingly and began to page  in '.her book.  "That  old., lady opposite is growing  suspicious on account of your book."  He leaned forwardjn his armchair and  contemplated her with joy.  "Who'is Miss Stanton?"  '    "Our teacher  of  mathematics.    She  usually chaperones me, but I made her  see there was no occasion"���������  , "Not the least in .the world," he said  fervently, setting his tie.  "I'm beginning to think she had better have come!   I,think'I'd best whirl  ' 'jny< chair around.   I've misgivings!"    .  "You can't.   It's stationary," he ex-  " Tilted.  "I might change my scat,"  she be-  'gan.  "I might, too," he threatened.  ' "No room." , .    '  "The  chair  has comfortable arms,"  he said suggestively.  "The old lady," reminded Edyth.  "Better stay then," he advised.  "Now,   Harry  wouldn't have forced  "(himself upon"���������  "Who's Harry?" he interrupted.  "He    is    at    Harvard,"    murmured  ' Edyth.  "We     beat     Harvard    badly     last^  Thanksgiving," he mused.  o   "Were you  at Yale last Thanksgiving?" she queried innocently.  "Senior!"    He looked hurt.  '  '.   "Ah!   So is Harry." she replied.    .  !   "On the team?" he demanded.      "- '  .'   "No," she admitted unwillingly.  "Shortstop," he announced and  drew himself up proudly.  "Harry is in a senior society," she  began.  He smiled in a superior fashion and  touched the golden wolf's head on his  waistcoat.  "Well, all the same' he wouldn't have  talked to me.'' she said in a tone of reproof,   "and,"   she  added,   "I  like  his  name."  "Burton sounds less frivolous."  "Awfully long." she demurred.  "Burt for short," he volunteered.  .    "I like Burt, too." she admitted.  "Yale blue would be becoming to  you." He pulled out a blue silk scarf.  '"So's rod," she protested.  "Too like your hair. Let's try blue:"  And ho handed her the scarf. She  glanced at the old lady and stealthily  held the scarf near her face.  "It's enchanting���������the only right col-  tor," he beamed upon her.  "To speak of iny hair as red!"  she.  began.   "You're the only .single man"���������  "I know, but I'm willing to change."  "What,   the   hair?"     She   bent  over  the  glass  and  patted  her pompadour  into shape.  "No," he too hastily contradicted.  "Harry says it's pretty."  "I'd like to put Harry off the earth,"  he said emphatically.  "Then I couldn't wear blue. It would  have to be black." She gave a little  sigh.  "Black for Harry? Absurd!" he  scorned.  "As I said before, you're the only  single man"���������  "And I told you before," he interrupted, "I'm eager to have you alter  that."  "I think I was just at that point in  my story." she said thoughtfully, picking up her book.  "Don't read or I'll change my seat,  [with all my traps, and the people will  think we've nad a quarrel." .  "Then I won't talk to you any more."

Mrs. Tillinghast,was loo.king  anxiously at the forward car when  Edyth touched lier arm.     ,   '        '  '  "Mercy, child, I feared you had not  come!" she exclaimed in a tone of relief. Suddenly she extended her hand  ,to'greet someone else."

"Now, look here,' both of you," said  Mrs. Tillinghast as she led the way to  the carriage. "I liave all the rest of  my house party assembled, and I find  three couples can't abide, each other."

"I'm awfully sorry, too," he said, stowing in the luggage. ��������� "I've heard lots  about him lately."  As they sped up the drive Mrs. Tillinghast went on with her troubles.  "I'm reduced to a stage of idiocy almost by getting the wrong people together. If you two are going to make  it hard for me by deciding to be uncongenial, there's nothing iv the world  left for me to do but to jump off a  dock."  Gilmore looked beseechingly at the  girl.  "I won't make it hard for you, dear  Mrs. Tillinghast," said Edyth, rubbing  her head caressingly against her hostess' shoulder. But she smiled at Gilmore.

In ISIS he received a  full pardon.- and his connection with  this service lasted until about, 1S2S.  when he settled at St. Mande as a p"a-  per manufacturer. Soon after the revolution of 1S30 he became a political detective, but with little success. In 1848  he was again employed under the republican government, but he died penniless in 1857.  A' COPY OF THE   KORAN.  Betting; en a Certainty.  Peter Schemm, says the Philadelphia  Times, was fond of telling the story of  a German typesetter who had been  boasting of his capacity for lager.  '"Youse Dutchman," he was told by a  bartender, "don't drink as much beer  as people says youse do!"  "Of course not," chipped in one of  tho customers. "And I'll bet you,  Dutchy, you can't drink a bucketful."  The German was lost in thought for  a moment and then hurriedly rushed  from the saloon, while the others roared with laughter. His boasting was  still the topic of conversation when he  returned, five, minutes lately and calmly said: ....','  "I'll take that bet."  The money v."as posted, a bar bucket  holding live quarts was tilled and the  .German promptly drank the beer and  took the $5. Nobody questioned that  he had won fairly, but one of the onlookers asked:  "Say. what did you leave the saloon  for that time?"  ''Why," he said as he winked with  the air of a man who was far too smart  for his follows, "I yust went .down to  Schmidt's and drank a bucket to see if  I'vould be safe in taking dot bet."

At the  same time he was a notorious thief,  and after many disgraceful adventures  he:enlisted in the army. In 170G he returned to Paris with some money,  which, however, ' he soon squandered.

A series ofo scientific , observations  for the    purpose of determining    the  exact longitude of all the station* of  the Pacific,,cable will be made during  the coming -summer.

Each country has its favorite cheese.  The S^sviss make the Gruyere cheese,  known more generally in this country  as Schweitzerkase; It is made of goats'  milk and is full of holes caused hy the  gases in fermentation. The cheese js  imitated, hut never equaled, here. The  typical" English cheese is the Cheddar,  first made in the English town after  which it is named: It is very like  American cream cheese. Chesire is another favorite English cheese, while the  fashionable cheese of the day iscStilton,  11 cheese which defies imitation. Sage  cheese, Jfirst made in England, is now  made the world over. Its distinguishing characteristic is the flavoring and  coloring of sage, parsley, spinach and  marigold leaves bruised and steeped.  Drio is a'popular French soft cheese,  and Camcmbert, originating in Normandy, is another. Those cheeses are,  cured in caves where tho temperature  never rises above 12 to 14 degrees.  They are ready for marketing iu May  nnd November. Roquefort, a celebrated  French cheese, is made from tho mingled milk of goats and sheep that  .browse on the thyme cJad banks of the  Arno; in western France. These cheeses  .are also ripened in caves, but the temperature is' kept at 40 degrees.- ��������� *  ��������� Akin to the Roquefort cheese Tg'that  called Gorgonzola, made in Ita! / after  similar processes. It;1is mil."' r than  .Roquefort and not quite so good, but it  is sold tnucii cheaper.- Another Italian  cheese, the Parmesan, is'very hard, and  "is usually , grated. It is offenest used  with macaroni.,Another curious Italian  cheese is the Cacciocavello,' or horse''  cheese, which is delicious, and; im-'  .proves with age. It is cured in the skins  used in making sausages and comes in  curious, sausag;blike sh.tpes.  Limburgei; cheese, so beloved by the  Germans, originated in Belgium. It is  extraordinarily rich, being allowed- to  ripen to putrefaction; hence its horrifying odor in unaccustomed nostrils.  ,Some persons have a saying, "Gorgon-  zola is a cheese to swear by, Linibur-  gcr to swear at." From Holland come  the Edam and the pineapple, both.made  In cleanly manner and very popular.

The roots of a ti;ee,do not cover the  same area beneath ,the earth as they do7  above. A gardener of many years' es--  ��������� pcrience, having had'a vast,"deal to do  in digging andL transplanting trees,  says he has found that the roots of  trees cover ou an average about two-  thirds of the area of its branches. .The  tree' which has the largest area under  ground is the weeping willow. This  tree's roots spread to such an extent  that should there be any trees or shrubs  planted within thirty'feet of them in a  few years the roots of; the willow will  be found intermingled with them. Fruit  trees, such as apples, pears and plums,  have very small roots in comparison  with their size. . The roots of currant  bushes do not occupy more than a quarter the space their branches cover.

IMPETMAL RECIPROCITY.  .Colonial   secretary Chamberlain  . made an important speech at Bir-  i- , .��������� 'minphHrn   on   the   15th  .inst., in  '.     which he foreshadowed the raising  of  ihe question   of   free trade vs.  1 - A ���������     c  protection, at the next general flection in Great Britain. -He consid-  ered local questions were comparatively runimportant beside the  great' Imperial policy upon which  the^fate of the Empire depended,  namely, "whether we stand together  one free nation.against all the world .  ' or whether we shall fall into separ-  ate states, selfishly seeking their  own interests and losing the advantages that unity alone can give. If  ' 7 6eparation began with home rule,  the Empire would0dissolve into its  component atoms. In order to preserve the Great Empire, he uryed  ' the-necessiiy of securing'the trade  of the Co'onie?..,Canada had offered  exceptional advantages which' Great  Britainj.di'd^i'iot dare' to accept be-  ' cause of the narrow interpretation'  of the doctrine of free trade, ai d the'  policy^of dictation and interference  77 ' by. foieigii power*?." Mr Chamberlain said he was justified by-the  ' belief,, that <��������� Great Britain was so  Wedded to, the fiscal system that it.  could no������ defend Us Colonies���������a  position not intended" by the pioneers   of free trade,  who,   if they  " were alive to-day, would agree to a  treaty of preference and reciprocity  with the Empire's childien. He  also said that a wrong interpretation had been put on doctrine of  free trade, but the country should  not be bound by this, and should  not hesitate to resort to retaliation  if necessary, wherever the interests  between the Colonies and the  Mother Country'were threatened.

The food value  . of beef-tea and of oysters has been  greatly over-rated, and fish ,has no  extra importance for brain-workers  oa account of its phosphorus, as  there is no experimental evidence-  io show that it contains mure phow-  "phorus   than   other   animal   food.  First among the vegetable foods are"'  to be placed ibe pea, the bean, and  the  lentil,  the   last-named   being,"  among  the most ancient forms of  food. -      ��������� . f .  ,     ��������� * *  Whether or not the ancients-  smoked is a question archaeologists  are trying'to decide..
