His voice trembled. "I can't  help loving you. but you must forget it.  I thank you for the pleasure that you  have given me today. It will be the  one bright spot in my life.

A prominent member of the faculty  of the University of Pennsylvania xMed-  Ical school, has made a study of. the  heart action of athletes.

A business woman  may not eat so much:, as a man, rbut  her needs are as great in point of  quality and regularity of food.  Brain workers should eat fish, "eggs,  cream, fruits and whole- wheat bread.  They should, eat enough of such food,  be they men or women, but they  should never overeat of anything.  An intelligent'idea of pur physical  make up and of the nutritive value oi  different foods would preclude mucu  recourse to doctors for advice when  we are overtaken with indigestion or  biliousness.���������American Queen.

" a,  "Yes, madam,", said, an Englishman,  of several years'' residence in Turkey,  "that is the' sultan," and he pointed  |over the heads.of soldiers several rows  deep lining (the"thoroughfare on either  side to a queer, old fashioned turnout  'in  which' sat'a  little old. man bent  "nearly double and clad all in black.  - "That is he just raising his hand,"  said the informant, and as a cheer that  savored of much practice "went,up from  the lines of soldiers the little old man  > raised a clawlike hand on a level with  bis hooked nose.  "Why, how old a man is he?" asked  the woman. ~,  "Sixty?   Why,> look/at his hair and>  mustache; jet black!" was her excla-  ..mation when, the monarch's age was  given.      '  "ThatVdye, madam, just plain dye,"  said the Englishman.' "It would never  *do for the Raven (that's what they call  him here) to grow old, you know."  "Let me tell you a little about him,?  - the volunteer guide "continued. "This i������!  .,an unusual occasion. The sultan rarely  leaves his palace. Just once a year he  ventures out under a heavy guard to  pay his holy duties at Stamboul, and  once each week���������every Friday���������the ceremony- of the Selemlik is observed.  Then he goes from the palace down the  hill to his private mosque. These are  the only times at which he leaves the  palace.  "I know he seems a very powerful  monarch, and he is, but I wouldn't take  the job at any price.   Trouble, trouble,  every moment of his life���������trouble with  foreign   countries,   trouble   at   home,  trouble with his officials, trouble with  his harem, assassins and spies about  him day and night   Would you be the  sultan?"  The woman as she turned awaj ex*  claimed   "The poor  old  man!"  strengthened that, with a niodei&te  amount of ,exercise after he has finished his rowing' career, "there is no reason, so far as the heart and lungs are  concerned, that he should not live to a  very old age.        ,  "The heart," said he', "is both a very  delicate and a very strong organ���������that  is, if it is well developed it will stand  an enormous amount of strain without  any permanent injury, but if it is not  well developed 'it is very easily weakened.'' Violent exercise, like rowing,  places - a great deal of strain on the  heart because when the body is being  exerted it requires so much more pressure to force the blood through the  body. Like any other muscle that is,  worked, the heart under the added labor becomes larger, ^and most athletes  have extra large, hearts, just as they  also  have, larger  muscles-throughout  "Ifrthe' strain is* put upon the heart  suddenly it dilates���������it becomes 'larger,  ?but not more muscular���������and that is the  danger in athletics. 'If a man, exercises  gradually then his,heart also increases  in siae gradually because the muscles  become larger,! and -this is^a perfectly  I normal -'condition. , -It simply means  that the athlete has^a'stronger heart'  than the average, and can cope with'  the;extra strain that-is^put upon "it. A  man needs a larger- heart to row a  race, and ^ if gradual exercise ,has so  provided him with one then he can  safely undergo the_most severe tests.  "It is the same ,way \viththe lungs,  and they must'.be developed gradually  until they can' undertake .the extra  work. A manwitb his^heart and lungs  well developed is in no danger, no matter how hard the race. He may completely keel over at the end of the race,  but it will likely be from sheer exhaustion, and his heart is so strong that the  effect is not at all injurious." He will  be'as good as ever in a few moments."  APHORISMS.  Force of Habit.

Kings are very common in the Indian  'Territory. ,(tln fact, they are so common  that no attention is paid to them', and  their .movements' exciter no comment  whatever. In the Creek country-alone  there, are twenty-five real live kings.  Nero Drew is a fair sample of them-  Each one has a kingdom to look after,  and it keeps him busy doing it.    '  The title.docs uot'descend from fa- ���������  ther to son, as it does in the effete European monarchies.    The Indians elect  their1 own kings.   The tenure of office  is two,years.    However, whenever,an  Indian is chosen king and  serves his  people   well   he ,is  usually   re-elected'  without opposition.    Some of the old'  kings in the Creel: Nation have been at  the head of their kingdoms for forty  years' or more.   Nero Drew has' been a  king for thirty-six years.  The Creek Nation is dividsn into twenty-five towns, which, is about the.same  as a township in the states.  Each town  has a king, whoso duty it is to look after-the Indians of his town.    He has no  vpower*to .spend their rnoncy or to command them to do anything.- -His pow-  ,ers are .somewhat paternal'.   He looks   .  after the sick and.sees thati.they have '^  medical'attention; he cares for the podiv ;  and decrepit.  When any of rhisrsubjects -  "get into trouble he gives them fatherly \-  advice and frequently appeals to, tlie,  -federal authorities to show them mer-*  cy.   He'advises with his subjects on all  matters pertaining to  their interests.  In,truth," he is - their worldly advisor;--^  sometimes he-is their spiritual adviser,  'also,, for occasionally the, Indians elect v  a preacher as king.

When drawing nearer they  discovered a large' rattler colled up.  The bird would drop quickly upon the  rattler and prick him with a, piece of  cactus in its feet and then drop the  same near the rattler. This was kept'  up over an hour until the bird completed a circle of cactus around the snake.  It then systematically pecked the snake  on the nead until the rattler was dead.  The gentlemen brought back eight' rattles that they cut from the defunct  snake.���������Tombstone Epitaph.  - ;  ' ;i  ���������N**f  i  ii \  ���������" *- *���������  t e -  .        -1  ���������v  1   r.^*  '  1 "  \    ^  -  ' -  14  rattle  ing, swaying crowd.

He said it is mainly as a  call that the rattle is used, though different sounds can be made with it, and  these sounds appear to have different  meanings.  "Once this man saw seven hogs attack a rattlesnake. The reptile began  to fight pluckily, and while he fought  he rattlsd loud and long. Three other  snakes came with great speed and  courage to his aid. A dreadful battle  followed. The snakes, though they  fought well, were all killed.  "The rattle is also said to charm or  neighborhood stock. A cow accustomed to drink at this tank.came for her  morning drink. The valley was covered with water and stood within two  or three inches of the top of the tank,  but the cow went over the waste ,of  waters to the tank.

The modern world, baring, plunged  into a civilization which, with its factories and railroads, seems to promise  a continual crescendo of noise, has at  last discovered a fact which the me-  diaival world was fortunately unable  to discover. This fact is that piercing  and deafening noises prolonged through  the twenty-four hours are not only offensive to the ear, but injurious to the  health. It becomes necessary therefore  for the modern world to combat loud  noise just as it combats heavy smoke  and noisome odors.���������Chicago Tribune.  Great Britain's  Trade.

A man with but one arm stood leaning against the "showcase
The other,
arm, the false one, rested partly on the
tray- of diamonds. On the hand of that
arm he wore a conventional glove or
black. He was a' well dressed man,
with' a smooth 'shaved face, lie was
examining some high priced stones.
With his other hand, the left one. he
finally '��� picked out a small diamond,
probably the least expensive of the lot,
and asked the clerk to wrap it up. At-
the same time he'pulled from his trou-
sers pocket a roll^of bills at least three
inches thick and with,the left hand
.. deftly counted out enough to pay for
,   , his purchase.  ' ��� '    -
Tho clerk took, the money and the
purchased gem and then seized the
tray to replace it In the case.
As he did so he rapidly counted with
his eye the, remaining stones,  as was
iD his custom.   There were two missing,
in addition to the one he himself had
taken from'the tray:    He glanced sus-
- piciously at the one armed man.
"1 beg your pardon, sir," ne said politely, but reaching as he did so for his
,   revolver underneath the counter, ''but
there are two stones,missing.    I���have
you  taken them?"    He made this in-
' ,   quiry with hesitation.
The one armed man looked the clerk
squarely in the eye.     "You are quite
, right to be, careful," he said pleasantly,
"but I did not take the stones.    How
many were there before?"
The clerk told him.    "Come," return
ed the man; "we will count them together, then.",
They did so.    They found the tally
' right.    There was none missing.   The
man   was   right -and   the, clerk   was
" wrong. ,t He apologized profusely, but
the  one armed   man  took  no. oil'ense
'Whatever-at the incident.   lie received
his diamond and.his change and spent
several   minutes   chatting   about   dia-
fmond "robberies and safeguards against
them arid then went his way.
"Queer thing happened .then," called
- the clerk  to another.     "1   came  near
telling that swell that he was a thief;
thought-that he took .uncouple of brilliants. 41 counted 'em wrong and told
him that he must have 'em..  He said
he hadn't.   .Then  I counted 'em over'
�� again and found 'em all right.    And he
wasn't mad about it either."
"Are you sure they're right now?"
returned the other, an older man. "Let
me see the traj\"
c The tray was produced. Before it
reached the counter the old man seized
the two largest diamonds it contained
and held them to the light.
"Done, by George!" he exclaimed.
"These are made of glass; that's all."
"Sneakers" Kelly, the crack plain
clothes man at headquarters, was put
on the case at once.
"I've heard of this fellow." he announced to the jewelry firm. "lie's a
new proposition and a slick one at that,
I understand, and there have been a
good many complaints about him. We
haven't been able to make a touch as
yet. I'll see what I can do, but I guess
it's best for you to charge the thing up
to profit and loss right now. Even if I
overhaul the man it's ten to one I won't
get the stones. I'll do my best, though,
That happened in Chicago. In January of the next year, on a cold, crisp
day, two prosperous looking men stood
almost side by side in a fashionable
jewelry store.
One of them was dressed in furs and
wore rich jewels. lie was a showy
man, with a red face. This was
"Sneakers" Kelly of Chicago.
The other man was a man of grave
appearance. He wore a gray beard
and bis hair was tinged with white.
By his appearance he was an aristocrat���probably the president of a bank.
In his left hand he held a fur mitten-
only one. His right was clothed in a
light colored suede glove. He ;was
buying diamonds.
Kelly watched this man closely-
more closely than did the clerk. Finally the clerk handed out a few small
bills and a small white packet and he
left. As he did so Kelly followed1 him.
When they reached the sidewalk Kelly
touched him. on the arm. The man
glanced at him but once, and then
swinging around suddenly struck Kelly in the head with his right hand. It
���was-bard as iron. Kelly'was stunned.
He reeled and fell. When he came to,
the other man was about to enter a
carriage which stood at the curb. The
carriage started off. but before the
door was shut Kelly had succeeded in
seizing that right false arm with a
tight and unrelenting grip. The man
beat him about the face with the other
hand and the coach went faster and
faster, but Kelly clung desperately to
the hand, his feet dragging' upon the
street below.
Suddenly, as they swung around a
corner, there wore a snap and a. jerk
and Kelly fell, face downward on the
pavement. ' It was late In the afternoon and dark and no one had noticed
what had happened. Kelly lay for a
moment, but soon recovered and scrambled to his feet, just in time to avoid
being run down by a heavy truck.
'And as he rose ho grasped something
tightly   in  his  arms.    This  object   lie,,
bore  to  a   brilliantly   lighted   window
and examined it.
"By George, that's clever." -np'srd
Kelly to himself, -'and i.-^v he'll I;::'���--���

The clerk did so. The detective held
forth a long 'false arm and pulled a
wire that protruded from its upper
end. ��As he did so from a recess in the
artificial'< palm there were, released
three gems, among the largest in the
house:' They- were genuine. The clerk-
on examination of the tray found that
three spurious stones' had been substituted^ their place.
Kelly and the clerk examined the
arm. It was made largely of wood,
but with a hollow iron chamber below'
the elbow, and a hollow hand. A series
of wires ran from the hand all the way
through the arm'. These wires evidently were controlled by the other
hand'or tlie feet, and it was these that
had snapped when Kelly clung to the
artificial member on the carriage step.
On pulling one of these wires1 Kelly
found that ii' slot in the hand opened
and closed, thus scooping up whatever
lay beneath it. < On pulling another he
found that it would ��� release one, two
or more spurious gems in place of the
purloined genuine stones. Of these
spurious gems they' found a (dozen or
so, but no more ��� genuine stones were
found. Evidently the thief secreted
each stone Immediately.
It was the most complete contrivance
that-Kelly had ever seen for any kind
of thievery: '   '
But Kelly ' was sore���sore in mind
and body. He vowed an unholy vow
in most unholy language that he would
have that one armed man's scalp inside
of a month at the outside. He was
not satisfied with the man's arm. He
wanted more. Kelly was one of those
people who are never satisfied.
Two weeks later In a large jewelry
house in'a down east metropolis an old
lady in a Quaker bonnet stood and adT
justed her spectacles and examined
some diamond earrings. ^ She L was
plainly but richly dressed*. Her real
name was "Sneakers" Kelly.
Contrasting with this aged woman
and within a foot or so of* her there
stood a tall young man with a black
lnuslache.*" There was a ruddy, healthy
color upon his, face. He said with some
embarrassment that he was buying an
engagement ring. He bent over a tray
containing an assortment The old lady was so close to him that she almost
touched him.
Suddenly she gripped him by the arm
and yelled to the clerk. "This man's a
thief!" she cried in shrill tones. "Close
the doors!'.'
The clerk hastily drew back the tray
of rings.    Several other men ran  up.'
Somebody closed the doors.
Then they inspected the tray of diamonds. Sure enough, two rings were
missing. None, however, had been substituted in their stead.
, The young man uttered not a word
He only looked surprised. He had made
no resistance and no outcry.
The old woman, however, was excited. She pushed back her bonnet fronJ
her face.
"He's got 'em!" she exclaimed. "He's
got "em in uis arm. It's hollow. Make
him lake it off. They're in there, I tell
you. and you'll find 'em."
The young man smiled, but protested
"Gentlemen," he began, "true it is
my misfortune to have but one arm,
and true that I wear a false one, but I
did not take your stones. I assure you."
The old woman violently shook her
head. "You make 'him lake off that
arm!" she commanded. "It's the greatest thing you ever saw. It's hollow.
and it's got your diamonds in it. Make
him lake it off."
The young man looked around upon
the faces; then he smiled again. "Here."
he replied; "there's but one way to
prove my innocence."
He removed his coat, rolled up his
sleeve, unbuckled a strap or two and
pulled off the arm. They gathered
round and examined it. especially the
old lady.
it was not 'hollow���not by a long
shot. It was an ordinary false arm.
inade of solid cork.
When they were satisfied that it was
nothing else, the young.man replaced
it and donned his coat again.
"Gentlemen." he continued, looking
hard at the old woman, "I am no man's
accuser or no woman's either, but
these stones were missed when both of
us���the old lady and myself���stood
at this couriterl There is a bare possibility," he continued, with a grin, "a
bare possibility that she has the stones
herself. And if I am not mistaken I
saw her put something in that bag.
You might examine it if you will."
The bag in qttestion was one which
hung at the old lady's side. They examined it. and they found���oh, nothing
much, save the two missing diamond
rings; that's all.
"Xow.- gentlemen," added the young
old lady is not what she seems to be.
Let us'investigate once more." He
readied over and deftly pulled from
her head the Quaker hat and an old
gray wig. There stood revealed- the
grizzled countenance of "Sneakers"
Kelly, the dote<tivc.
The clerks pounced upon him , and
bore him to the station house, the nearest one. There lie was kept for two
days, until a Chicago special could be
sent on to recognize and identify him
for the man he really was.
��� But on- the way' down to the station
the young man with the false, arm
somehow disappeared. Before be did
so. however, he stepped up and said a'
word to Kelly.
"Kelly." he explained in a low voice,

A friend, of Canadian descent,    but
educated'and naturalized in the United States, complains that'we. do   injustice  to his ancestors     and     their

oul that not' only  are our  ' northern
neighbors  inhabitants of  "America,"
and therefore-"-Americans,"  but that"
their territory is considerably  larger
than .that of the United States,    excluding ' Alaska,  all  of  which is    entirely, true, though we do not seethe
exact pertinency of excluding Alaska
in the measux-emeht of territory.    If
we ore to limit the use' of the word
American to the,designation    ofr'an
inhabitant of , the continent of Amer--
ica, the Canadian is as completely, an
American > as    a.-' resident    of    New
York.      ' The designation   would, ' of
course, ,be strictly  logical, and " ^correct.   But it would, also, be extremely;
obscure and inconvenient. The inhabitants,'of Central.and ^Soiith America
are  as  much _ Americans,,    in     that',
sense,  as ,ourselves - or the    Canadi-'
, ans.'     And /even if we try to    nirake

���The poet Cowper, was wont to-say'

much to ask of our friend'who (objects to our-use of the word. American. What better, is there for its
purpose? We grant that it is not en-

is not very modest for the people of

We should be quite, willing, to drop
it if there were any single word-that
would tako its place and convey the,

as Canadians, or, if on the south, as
Mexicans, and each is a titlo of which

It Is one thing to have a chair and
another to know how to sit on it. The
Ideal of a graceful sitting posture has
varied in the different ages of the
world. The Egyptian sat bolt upright,
the knees and feet closely pressed together. It was the, ceremonial attitude. The Greeks and Romans, when
they were at liberty to forget their
dignity, sat stooping, with one or both
elbows supported by the arms of the
The   Chinese   Ideal   was   with   the
knees and feet wide apart.   They have
maintained that attitude in sitting for
400 years.   Tbe Saxons and early Norman   kings   are    represented   in   old
manuscript and on coins in the same

An Infant'* Inheritance.
Dr.   Frederick  Tracy,     lecturer ' on
philosophy in University College, Toronto,   at     the Presbyterian summer
school, i in  speaking  of   "An  Infant's
Inheritance,"   said  the   period-of  infancy   is  longer   in  the   higher  series
of boings,  shorter in" the lower.   Tlie
lowest have no  infancy.    The higher
the civilization'the longer the period
of infancy and tutelage.   Tho significance of this  is  that the' human  infant      has  great    possibilities.   Prof.
Triu y defines, an ciiin-atr d mcui as one   -
who  is prepared  tor all emergencies, ,
the man  who' rises  to   the occasion. '
Education,     therefore,   is the process
of fitting    him   for his environment,
to   enter  upon   his 'inheritance.    His
inheritance is.Jivefold: -��� (1)  Material,'
scientific,     nature;    (2)    literary���all

Church must     become  more  efficient '
than   it  has   been  if  the  child  is    to
enter into his speciia-1 inheritance. Br.
Tracy pointed     out tnat, among the
changes, some move toward a better
state   of  things.  - It   is   only' in  man
that  the  word   "hotter"   has'an  ethical   bearing.    Man's  culture    is     for
man's   own  sake,   and  this  cannot be
said   of  anything  else   on  earth.   Education  is  given  a child  because    he
has God's  image,  an end in himself.
All  education    has    its  end   in  some
form  of human  character.

The  truih, is'  that   the great, mass of the people  on both sides have,not troubled  to  Btudy the0que������uion for  I herns-elves,  and   have depended upon the various opinions utteie'd by newspapers  ,to guide them.    Our rights have not  been sacrificed as some would have  us believe.    ' If we read the correspondence leading  up Lei  the treaty  of 1825," examine tbe map's publish-  ,    ed������before and after that date, study  the   ci.'cumstancvs   and   objects   if  the treaty, and the conduct of Rus-  . sia'io   its agents after .the  treaty,  , future error will be avoided and-1he  strength,of'the American claim admitted.   :T!le strategic value of such  islands asKaunaghuna andSilklan v  which   the   Americans   have . been  ��������� _   allowed to keep,  was not involved  in the'decision. Dundas island  which commands Dixon entrance,  'is vastly more important toCanada,  than these two small islands. Some  have been dirdoyai enough to advocate   going   oyer   Lo- the^Americ .n,,  - side. v Such ideas areinconeeivable,,  'and have  bein formed without re-  V flection, as will be found out sooner  or latter. The .decision of Lord  Alverstone was tiiat of a sound  jurist, and it t-hould bo accepted  ,with giatitude-and rei-pt-ct. ��������� Ii is  to be lioped that Canada will iliink.  twice before a cine in a churlish  manner on the rights of American  - fishermen-to enter Canadian waters.  People who have travelled for years  <��������� in the'vicinity of Portland Inlet  admit, that, compared with the  value of tbe two islands awairted to  Canada, which are well wooded  with valuable timber, Kaunaghuna  -and Sitklan are practically value-  'less. It is a dangerous policy to  agitate the notion that the people  have had their interests saoiifieed  for lack of consideration or blind  partisanship. There' is no doubt as  to  the integrit}' of   the gentlemen  ��������� appointed to give decision on this  question, and it is our duty now  that  the award  has been made, to  ^  loyally abide by the decision.
