McLean was wo-king   in   His  watchmaking establishment, a Jap  came in, and after examining   and  pricing sundry   anicl������3,  managed  to convey   a   small   clock   to  his  pocket-.       Mr.    McLem      quickly  missed the article and coming from  behind the counter, tried   to   keep  the fellow from going out  until -an  officer could  be   summoned.     Trie  Jap at once caught him and   threw  him down with such    violence that  he was partially stunned, and   Mr  McLean   thinks,   intended    d ing  him greater injury and  rifting the  shop, but that he  waa -fortunately  noticed by a passer by who entered  and caused the miscreant - to   bolt.  The new comer  promptly pursued  and ci,ugbt him, lvild^rrh:nr until,  the arrival of   p lieu   oificur Banks  who with   some   diifieulty   placed  the darbies, ar.d-thcn marched him  off to the gaol.

QTJAD. ������  Copyright, 1900, by C. B. Lewis.       ^  If you had a chart before you, you  would see, that. Wakes Island is a bit  of a dot in the Pacific ocean, lying a  little south of the regular sailing route  between    Honolulu    and   Yokohama.  ���������Nowr and then it is sighted by steamer  or''sailing- vessel making the passage,  but the great majority pass it by 200  miles to the north.    The traders call  there occasionally  for  water  or  fuel,  but as there are no inhabitants there  can be no trade.    It is an island three  ,    miles long by one and a half broad,  and it was thrown'to the surface by an  ��������� earthquake.     There   is   but  one   spot  where a landing can be made even in  the calmest weather, as its shores are  ,   rocky and rise to a height of from 30  to   100, feet.     Much  of  the   island  is  wooded, and bowlders l'lie about everywhere, and it is probably one of the  loneliest  spots  in  the  universe. '  For  some reason which no one can explain  no birds are ever found there,  nor is  there any animal life.    The only living  things are land crabs, and they are of  such size and fierceness that traders  have had to flee before them.  In the year 1SG1 the bark  Restless  sailed out of San Francisco on a voyage to Japan and China.'   She had just  ' been purchased' by a man named Robert Westall, who was little'known, but  had suddenly made a lot of money, and  1he  cargo  was  also   mostly - his.     He  went with his ship, and a,fate befell  - him which .reads stranger than fiction  of the sea.   He was a landsman, knowing nothing of ships and sailors, and it  transpired that the captain he selected  was a thoroughly bad man, while the  mate wras little better.    It was probably the captain's idea from the outset  to get possession of the ship, but West-  all's suspicions were not aroused until  after they had called at Honolulu and  resumed  the voyage.    Then  he  overheard   observations   among ' tho   crew  ���������which  alarmed  him,  and he wont to  the captain with  his statements.    He  was told without any beating around  the bush that the bark was to change  hands.    He was  to be marooned on  Wakes island, and she was to pursue  her voyage as captain and crew decided.    It was one man against 15,  and  of  course  he  was   helpless.    Neither  threats nor promises had the slightest  effect, and when  he stormed  he  was  cautioned  to  hold  his  temper,  or  he  would be set afloat in a small boat to  perish of thirst and starvation.    When  the island was finally reached, West-  all was ordered into a boat to be rowed  ashore.   Not a pound of provisions or  an extra article of clothing was to go  with him.    He was not even to have  the means of kindling a fire.   Rendered  desperate by the situation, he made a  fight  for  it,   but   wras   soon   knocked  senseless by the blow of a capstan bar,  and while in that condition was rowed  ashore and dumped on the beach. W^hen  he recovered consciousness, the Restless was sailing away and was already  miles distant.  Jules Verne has told how a sailor  cast away on a desert island almost  naked managed to live almost luxuriously and provide for his every want.  The difference between imagination  and reality wras exemplified iu West-,  nil's case. He tried for days and days  to produce fire by rubbing dry sticks  together, but he never succeeded. He  constructed a hut in the woods, but his  food consisted of shellfish, roots and  wild fruits, and there was no way to  replace his clothing. He soon found  fresh water, and he also made the discovery that the spot seemed accursed  of all living things except the land  crabs. "As a rule these loathsome creatures did not bother him during day-  that he had forgotten his own name.  It was two hours before it came to  him, and then, fearful that it might  go out of his mind for good, he carved  his initials on the bark of a tree with  a sharp stone. After making the circuit of the island three or four times  he settled down near the landing place,  and every day for weeks and months  and years he hoped that some trader  would put in or some ship send.in her  boat. Traders did call on three or four  occasions, but he missed them. Once  he was asleep iu the tree top: again  he was ill. On a third occasion the  crabs were out in such numbers that  the trader grew afraid and put off as  soon as he had touched.  You will wonder how a man could  have lived for a month as Westall lived  for   three   years.     For   eight   months  there was a species of wild fruit something like a plun������     Now and then a  fish was left by the tide for him to capture,   but   he   had   to   eat  them   raw.  There  were oysters and' mussels and  limpets clinging to the rocks, but after  awhile  he could hardly  force himself  to swallow them.    In six months his  hoots were gone and his clothing was in  tatters, and as the days dragged away  the man had it on his mind that his  memory   was   failing   him'.     When   a  year had gone by, he could no longer  recall his identity.   The initials on the  tree stood for a dozen different names  to him.    Six months later he was little  better than a wild beast.    During his  second year, had he thought to erect  some   sort  of   signal   at   the   landing  place���������some   such   signal   as   a  sailor  would have made���������he would probably  have  been  rescued,  as  two  or  three  traders came in for water, but he did  not1 even heap up stones or set up a  bush to attract attention.    He had existed  on   the  island   three  years and  two weeks when "the American whaling ship  Jonathan  touched  there  for  water.    I  was  in  the  boat first sent  ashore, and while waiting for the water casks to arrive I followed a path  up.into the woods and discovered West-  all asleep on his platform.    I believed  him at first to lie some monster gorilla.  The  weather  bad  turned  him  almost-  black, <his .hair was long and  matted,  and he was without clothing.    As he  came tumbling down I ran away and  gave the alarm.    That frightened .him,  and seven men of u^ spent half a day  in his capture.    He fought us with the  greatest ferocity, and, for a long lime  we could not make'out his nationality.  Ho chattered a queer jargon or sulked,  and we had put in at a Japanese port  before we could keep clothing on him.  I was one of the apprentice boys on  the  ship.   aud.   as  the  wild   man   had  taken a great liking to me and I seemed to be the only one who could control  him, the American consul advised that  I he left behind with the man while the  ship   made   a   three   months'   circuit.  Quarters were provided for us. and I  was instructed how to go to work in an  effort to restore the poor fellow's memory.     By   this   time   he .had   let   fall  enough to satisfy us that he was either  English   or  American.     We   had   also  connected him in a way with the missing ship  Restless.    She  had  been  reported as leaving Honolulu,  but that  was the last of her.    I put iip a blackboard   and   turned    schoolmaster.      I  chalked down the letters of the alpha-  rolled out. . Captain Noble Robinson  was tenant on the farm last year. Mrs.  Robinson raised turkeys, using china  eggs in their nests. She says that 14  months ago she missed the nest egg  from a nest near the ice pond. She  supposed a boy who had the range of  the meadow had taken it. When the  egg from the snake was showrn to Mrs.  Robinson, she identified it as one she  had ' lost by a certain incised mark  upon it. The snake had carried the  china egg 14 months In his vermiform  appendix, apparently without appendicitis. But he must have thought very  hard of it and that it was very singular  that it could not be digested.  ,  THE STING  OF A  BEE.  ConntricH Thnt Teach Gardening.  School gardens were established in  Belgium many years ago. and it is said  that to them is due the prosperity of  the rural population, the larger portion  being engaged in truck gardening. After the introduction of agriculture into  the public schools of France, by a law  passed in 1885 school gardens increased in that country. Annual appropriations have been devoted to an extension of the system in Switzerland since  issn.  DecefWnl Man.   '  Two men were, standing together in a  postofrice. , Oue of them happened to  notice that a postcard held in the fingers of the, other was addressed to the  holder. ���������  "Why, what does this mean?" he  asked. "Do, you address letters to  yourself?*' '  "In this case, yes," was the answer.  "That's funny."  "Well, not so very. See the other,  side."  He held It up. and the other side  read: "Brother Blank���������There will be  a meeting of the, I. O. O. S. B.. No.  387, at the hall tonight to transact  special business. Members not present  will be fined $10.   J. B., secretary."  "les, but I dou't exactly catch on,"  protested the in^cent.  "Oh, you don't V Well, I got the  cards printed myself. The society- is>  all a mj'th. When 1 want to go out of  an evening, I direct one of these cards  to my house. I reach home, and my  wife hands it to me with a sigh. I  offer to stay home and stand the fine  of 2 guineas, but of course she won't  allowr that. That's all, my friend, ex-;  cept that v the1 scheme is worked by  hundreds of others, and the poor, deluded wives haven't tumbled to it  yet."  SHOE PINCHES.  It  la   a   Carious   Little   Weapon   and  Wonderfully Constructed.  The sting of the bee is a weapon only  too well known. There are lew of us.  probably who have not at some or  other felt the effect of a sting from a  bee or wasp. The bee is not generally  so easily excited to sting as the wasp  unless it is much provoked or has a decided prejudice against ,some particular  person, which is occasionally the case,  but when it does it is usually with the  sacrifice of its own life, as it generally  leaves its weapon in the wound, with the  little sack of poison attached to I ti We  need not wonder, that it is diilicult to be  withdrawn when we read the account  of the shape of the-sting of the bee.  The sting of the bee is not, as it might  appear to the naked eye, a mere lance  or a bayonet. It is in truth something  much more formidable, rather resembling  those ' frightful engines of destruction  , which the common consent of civilized  nations has excluded from the practice  of modern warfare. In a word, the little  instrument known as "the sting" is  found when magnified to' be the sheath  in which the true sting lies concealed, although the whole enters the wound when  the attack is made. The piercing apparatus itself is, however, double, being composed of two long darts, which are placed side' by side, so as to form a lance,  and, .being furnished by suitable muscles,  they are forcibly protruded from the  sheath when required for attack or defense.  If we employ a tolerably high microscopic power $o examine the points of  these darts, we shall find them to be  barbed, each piercer being furnished on  one side ,with eight, teeth, and as- they  are so placed when in use that the  smooth edges ��������� are in juxtaposition you  will perceive that they then constitute a  single formidable barbed,, spear similar  to one of those primitive weapons of warfare employed by the savage inhabitants  of various countries that you will uo  doubt often have met in museums or collections of ethnological curiosities.  You will now perceive what a formidable weapon the.sting must be when directed by the bee against an insect of its  own size, and after examining its barbed  points, you. will easily understand, too.  how it happens<��������� that when, the .little  belligerent manages to penetrate your  own skin it should be compelled to leave  its sting behind.  PERSONALITIES.  THE TIP OF THE TONGUE.  light, but as soon as the sun went  down they swarmed over the whole  island. They were gigantic in size,  and his only way of escaping them  was to climb a tree. He built a platform among the limbs ten feet from  the earth, and every night during his  long stay he resorted to it. About once  a month, generally at midday, the  crabs would swarm by the million and  hold possession of the island for two  cr three hours. At such times the  noise made by their claws as they  passed over rock and soil was almost  deafening and gave him a great scare.  While the man speedily recovered from  the blow on the head given him on  shipboard, his lonely situation soon  began to tell on his mind. One day,  at the end of three months, he found  bet, made figures, drew pictures and  tried to start his memory to work. For  a month I had no luck. The man's  mind was as blank as night. He tried  hard enough, and he used to break  down and weep almost daily, but' he  could not get hold of the end- of the  string. I had about given up all hope  when one day as I was going through  the usual performance memory came  back to him ���������like a flash. He suddenly  uttered a shout and sprang to his feet,  and as I turned on him it was to find a  newr look on his face and to hear him  shout: ;  "It has come! It has come! My  name is Robert Westall, and I can remember everything!"  So it turned out. but the shock of recovery;.'brought about an illness that  confined him to his bed for weeks.  When he could relate his story, the  consul went to work to find out. what  had become of the Restless. Inquiries  were made at all the ports of China  and.Japan, but no news was obtained.  The search was still being prosecuted  when a sandalwood trader from one of  tho Philippines brought the consul  some wreckage picked up three years  agone which proved that the bark had  gone to the bottom in a gale encountered soon after sailing away from  Wakes island. To this day there have  been no tidings to alter this belief.  The wretches who so coolly and deliberately planned the death of the  shipowner by starvation did not live  beyond a few days to enjoy their triumph. The three years spent on the  island made an old man of Westall before his time, and he never was clear  headed again, but he lived for 15 years  after and managed to get together  quite a little property and to spend his  last years in peace.  Never wear a shoe that pinches the  heel.  Never wear a shoe or boot tight anywhere.  Never come from high heels to low  heels at one jump.  Never wear a shoe that presses up  into the hollow of the foot.  Never wear a shoe or boot so large in  the heel that the foot is not kept in  place.  Never wear a shoe or boot that has  depressions in any part of the sole to  drop any joint below the level plane.

There is at least one woman in Kenwood who believes thoroughly in the  efficiency of prayer. About a year ago  her husband engaged in a business  venture that looked rather uncertain,  But his wife had strong faith that it  would turn out well.  "Go ahead, John," she said, "and let  us put our trust in the Lord. I pray  every night that we may.have no reason to regret the risk we are taking."  ' The affair seemed, to turn out pretty  well right from the start. Handsome  dividends were paid all through the  summer and during the winter, and  great joy was in the home of this, man  and the sharer of his fortunes.  But there came a turn about a month  ago. The business ceased to pay, and  since then the losses have been increasing every day. Nothing was said about  it at the firer������'de around which so much  happiness had centered during the last  year until tbe other day, when it was  suggested by the worried husband that  it would be well to cut dowui expenses.  Questions followed, as a matter of  course, and then it had to be confessed  that the business was not going well.  "Dear me!" exclaimed the distressed  woman when' all the truth had been revealed to her. "I must begin praying  again tonight!" ��������� Chicago Times-Herald.  A Useful Trait.

'  The tip of the tongue possesses the  most perfect sense of touch. The finest,  1-air is felt upon its surface, and even  when fingers fail to ascertain the qualities of certain bodies, contact with the  to:-gue immediately'recognizes them. The  relativel'sensibility of various parts of the  body is best measured by means' of a pair  of compasses, tlie points of which are  tipped with cork.  The tip of the tongue can distinguish  two distinct impressions when the compass points are only half a line, or the  twelfth of an inch, apart, the tip of the  finger when they are one line apart.  Other spots vary still more widely; this  distance at the lips is two lines: the tip  of the nose, three lines; the cheek, five  lines: palm of, lhe"hand, five linos; forehead, ten lines; back of the hand, 14  lines: chest, 20 lines: back and thigh. 30  lines!  If, however, this experiment is repeated with a pair of compasses capable by  slight pressure of pricking, it will be  found that there is no corresponding difference between the parts in their sensibility to pain. On the contrary, in places  where' the sense of touch is most keen,  the sense of pain is in the first instance  at least 'deadened, aud the parts most  callous in discriminating the double  touching points are by no means the least  alive to the sensation excited by their  pressure.  The tip of the tongue has 50 times the  tactile discrimination of the arm. but the  arm is more sensitive to a sharp point  applied with moderate pressure to the  ���������skin than either the tongue or the finger  and is at least as aiive to the presence  "of a very'light body, a hair or-feather,  drawn along the surface.  Curiously enough, the right hand,  which is more sensitive to touch than  the left, is less sensitive to temperature.  If the two hands are dipped in two  basins of water at the same temperature,  the left hand will f<">l tbp drearest sensa-  tiou of heat. .  , Oberlin college has conferred the degree of LL. D. on S.

He had scarcely boarded the  street car, however, when'a passenger  with a deep voice growled out:  "Yes; I was out fishing myself one  day last week. I brought home 20  pounds.

At White Rock Mills, within sound  of the noisy swish of the Gaspereau  river, is a pretty little-cottage.  ��������� In this cottage there dwells with  her ' parents Miss Belle Cohoon, a  very bright arid attractive young lady who takes a lively interest in all  the church and society work of the  little village.

He was-vory cordially received  and found both Miss Cohoon and her  mother most enthusiastic and ardent  friends o������ this great Canadian remedy which is now so universally used  throughout the world. We give below in essentially her own words  Miss Cohoon's story:  "Three years ago this spring my  health was very much run down. I  had not been feeling well for some  time, and when spring opened up'and  the weather became warmer my condition became worse. The least exertion exhausted me and was followed by an awful feeling of weakness and a rapid palpitation of the  heart. I seemed to lose my ambition  and a feeling of langour and sluggishness' took its place. My appetite  failed me and my sleep at night was  disturbed and restless. In fact I was  in a very sorry condition. I suffered  in this way for some time. Then I  began tho use of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills, aid they soon began to work  a change for the better. <3tfy strength  and spirits improved wonderfully,  and the old feeling of tiredness began to leave me. My appetite returned and my , weight increased  steadily. By ��������� the time I had used  less than half a dozen, boxes I felt  stronger than I had done for years.  Since that time whenever I feel the  need of a medicine a prompt use of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills has always  brought mo speedy relief, and in future when ailing I shall never use  anything but these pills, and strongly advise others to follow my example." '  Dr."Williams' Pink Pills create new  blood, build up the nerves, and thus  drive disease from the system. In  hundreds of cases they have cured  after all other medicines have failed,  thus establishing the claim that they  areca marvel among the triumphs of  modern medical science.

I'roni Winnipeg Telegram.  Tlie Free Press, in a vain effort to avert  thi- wrath ot the farmers from tho mvri.mc  combine-controlled government,   points  out  that   the   present  ttirltl'  contains   a   clause  allowing the government  to  at once take  tiii the  duty ou  any  article  In  respect   of  which  u  combine exists.    The  Free Press  C'-uld not have doue the government a worse  tiorvice than to will attention  to this fact.  Tho  government   possesses   the   power   but  when has  It exercised  ll?    Absolutely n .>t  cnee.    Could  there be better  proof of the  r.-n'L tlun   life government is controlled  bv  the combines and is using its power Lo foster,   not  crush,  them?    That combines exist.  Is notorious.    The coal oil  combine is  but  one   illustration.     By  nutting  coal  oil  on the free list, as parliament has given, it  power to  do.   the government could  break  the    combine,   aud   fulfil   its   ante-election  pledge   to   thu  farmers   to  give   them  free  coal oil.    lint the government  will not do  '   >������u and i be Standard'Oil monopoly contributes  to  the government's campaign  fund.-;  for the protection It enjoys.    How different  to tbe policy of the government in relation  to combiues Is that of Mr. IT\igh John Mac-  '    r dontiiil.    In his Brandon speech. Mr.  Mnc-  douuldodeclared that his policy in relation  to combines as follows:  ���������'When combines are formed to raise the  ,   price of any article bevond the proper oricc.  he was prepared, although a  firm , believer '  In a  protective tariff, to remove that protection and force the combines to meet the  open competition of the world."  And lie gave this pledge:  "If the Conservatives assume office, such  action will  be taken as  will end all tradt  combines In Canada at once and for ever."  Can the man who believes that combines  ore an evil requiring prompt and firm suppression, be in any doubt as to whether he  should support Mr. Macdonald or the ores-  tut trovernrnent?  ( (T   THE TWO'DOGS!  Brolly the Boer  Deerhound  and  Punch  the Pet of the Liverpools.  A remarkable story has come under my  notice, writes a war correspondent of th--  I^omloii Telegraph, a story wh ch contains  'an "object lesson."     It seems almost impossible that the sagacity of a dog shoul.  teach caution  to officers  of ali  rank* ii  our army; yet it is so and I cannot le; t.V  tula die, for the sake of our rising mi.i  tary stars,   who may  not always  be re  quired to shine iu a nice flat country lik,  The Soudan, where the enemy  takes tin  shape of a mob of savages arrayed m tin.  most convenient form lor their whoutja,.  oiaughter.  -irolJy iind Punch are, or rather were���������  for the former alone survives���������Wo du^s,  the liiaL an old deerhound, the second".-i  joung and frivolous fox terrier. Brol.ys  life hau been spent in the hard bin perhaps congenial surroundings of a lioer  farm, and Punch had beeu born and bred  m ma Liverpool Regiment. Brolly's lace  wud streaked with grey, and Punch, notwithstanding, the Ladyshiith siege rations--  . carried more flesh than was good for him;":  in short, the one was a grizzled old soldier and the other a-promising if rather  loo dashing recruit.  Ainutig   Lbo pleasant .-duties, performed  by the mounted infantry during the siege  oue was that an officer should patrol with  -lour men  by night until the party.drew  .lire, which it did not fail to do���������tire of all  sorr*;;   bullets,   pom-pom,   aud   shells   of  every calibre.     So om March 1, the dav'  alter   Lord ��������� Duudouald    entered    Ladv-  smith,   Lieutenant Ewart,  of the Liverpool   llegiuicjut,  started   on   his   morning  .rule���������the enemy  were supposed  to have  evacuated the ground���������and he proceeded  to the nek between Lombard's Kop and  liuhvaua  mountain.     There waa on his  Jrit   a   spur   of   Lombard's   JKop ��������� called '  Umbrella  Hill, and Mr. Ewart passed it  without thinking it necessary  to visit it.  -However, a light among the'trees behind  bini excited hi������ suspicions, so he took hin  patrol up the hill.    When he reached the  top lirol.y came bounding up to him from  the direction of the Boers, and though total strangers they made friends at once.  Shortly afterwards a    noise    of    falling  atones and thcrattle of a horde's shoes on  the rocks  ;.-retold  the advent of a newcomer  lu-.-  iikcly  to be  friendly.  It  was  Brolly's master, a Boer horseman on patrol.      The   light   was   not   good,   consequently   the   .nan   escaped   capture,  ..Mr.  Ewart,   a  sprinter  hiiiis-olf.   chasing him  till   the six   bullets   in   Ins   revolver   had  been fired, but the Dutchman did not fall  until   he   was shut  a hundred  yards farther  on.      Brolly,  however,   knew   which  was the winning side, instinct appiirently  telling him that the Boer game was up.  and  he  followed  Lieutenant  Ewart back  through a merciless fire, which met them  ir-un :i H!ii.:i: party or' Boers who tried lo  intercept  their retreat  to  Pound  Spruit,  h'loin  that  day  the  hound  and  his now  master became devoted  friends and companions.  As for Punch, he swaggered about with  :'.'. the over-con fidt'ii'.-c or' a regimen la.  dog_ whose onl.v^ campaigning had been  ;t ���������.-.-'in-:r tlv "I-.'i'.'garas." 'Noisy and  bumptuous, he was not considered good  ���������������!���������..,igii tor pntroiuig, although, at-* he aim  Hr.illv I've'1 to'/etlv." it is strange that If-  should not have adopted some of-the slim-  iicsn of hN ������������������"uiT'.-inion long bofo'-o \]y(,  lessou of which I am about to tell. In  ;h<'i-r. 1'u:.cii was like the good old-fash-  i 'lied oflicer. brav at* a lion, waving hi.s  ��������� ten on with hat in hand, and not at all a  'fM-r' 'iiivnc (li>'.'s ]'.- v"nl,! ���������';<-'���������'  anywhere, whereas a Dutch dog like his  that, owing to over-confidence iu his own  intelligence, a staff officer led a regiment  o.' hc.-t- into a trap, which had ben  c.'voHy conceived by the wily Dutch,  and Brolly's now master had to gallop  for a kopje to foil a flank attack. Tlute  ���������ie siKcessluliy acconipiished. Mr. Ewart  leaving, his hoise under cover at the base  of the hill, rau with his men to the top.  Xot so Brolly, who stayed with the ho.'.-o.  Le kiK-w-that it was, h's one says racing,  "not a good thing," and he did not fancy  it. The storm of bullets which greeted  tlie first arrivals on the summit proved  him a good judge:  The dashing Punch, on the other hand,  galloped to the most prominent position  he "could find, barked at the Boers, and  took no notice of the ''swish-swish" of  the Mauser bullets.' By his very' noise  and go, and above all, by occupying the  Kky..ne when he should have been below  't. ho drew upon the small party an extra  amount of bullets, until at last'one found  him in the jaw���������a fitting place���������and  m< unti'd infantry knew him no more.  The astute Brolly, who had remained in  ���������'���������ear. paid scant attention to his dead  comrade. Tie sniffed disdainfully at bin  c:."cnsi', and then gave an expressive  grin and wagged his tail.  If only B.'olly could have told us all he  thought! I sen him now daily, his Aviso  brain full of tilings I long to know. It  is a curious fact that he never wil' go on  patrol in tho direction of the Orange  River Colony, where Dowefc lives. Towards Utrecht and Vryheid he i������ always-  ready to trot when his master is sent  in that direction. Perhaps he knows  Dower, and i.-*, waiting till General Run-  o!"'s patient tactics have made the Boer  WhoTidan trek.  It may seem absurd to illustrate by tho  behaviour of a dog a chapter in inil'itary  history,  n'lhough   the  facts  of  this   tale  ���������aro indisputable; but I shall be forgiven  I hope, for my attempt when I say that  !!iis old dferhouud possesses some of tlie  ��������� iiialities which  many of our leaders appears to lack.     lie is brave when necessary  even   to  foolhardiness���������witness   his  retreat  from  Umbrella ���������Hi]';  can lions in  season���������see'how he behaved at Wakkor-  stroom: and. above all, he knows enough  not to sit on a sky-line when a v.-illev will  serve hi������ turn.

Every time the dress regulations for the  army are revised there is the same outcry  against the gold lace patterns contained  therein.  "Khaki" writes to the Times.

FINE  DONE AT���������  The Jews Office.  o] ���������'   Col. Haywood, who has been examining    mines     for  English,     clients,   was  greatly  impressed   with  tho  possibilities  of the' camp, considering the amount of  development that has been accomplished.  x Broadly . speaking,   the Colonel    believes  i/"\the   values   will     average   higher - than  other Boundary proposhions, /the ledges  varying in  width from ti to u'O feet,^ and  , the majority exceeding 35 feet in width.  fi'The values are principally in copper and  I'goldj but many galena ledges give high  ' reiums in silver.     There is a large area  of   bottom   lands   available   for   agricultural  purposes. ,    Several   ranches   have  been located.      Me describes the timber  wealth of- the district  ;i������ enormous, and  far exceeding the reserves in the Boundary district:     Cedar ami .hemlock trees  ,grow to a large size.-    Ultimately a big  lumber industry will be created, and no  difficulty will be experienced iu  floating  the logs down the river to Grand Forks.  Col., Haywood added  thar the extension  a of a  railway   to   Franklin   camp   within  " two years would be justiried if development work progresses as   rapidly   as  m  the past.     There is an easy grade over  A the eutirerdistance.     Col.

Unlike the contested-  portion   of   the   Alaska' boundary,   the  lnterprovinciai   British   Columbia-X tikon  ,   line takes its, bearing from the stars, the  [( (JOth parallel ol* latitude'being the dh'id-  \ ing line.     Mr. White Frazer's work was  /'ol a preliminary nature, though, it comprised all of the intricate work of locat-  - ing     the' line.      At   certain     station's���������  r^ notably the crossings of large rivers and  ' on  mountain-    peaks���������the     astronomical  camp   made,   and   when     the   line   wad  located it' was marked by a monument.  From these monuments it will be a simple ��������� matter   for ��������� a   surveying   party   to  mark out tho  line.     In speaking of his  trip, Mr. White Frazer said:   "    ���������     '      ���������  "Our path lay  through a very rough,  \ -wild ' country,   and     after     leaving, the  J, region   adjacent' to   the   starting   point,  ( wi- met with no one until we came out  i' at the head  of tV>r>  Porcupine.

The  Altiec  ������������������river, along which we worked for a eon-  [f/sidorable distance, is a turbulent stream  /and   the  country   it   traverses   is   badly  ^.bioken   up,   with   frequent     precipitous  m  cliffs and mountains, which made travel  llS!ling difficult.aud hazardous.       seemed lo be but little known  to man,  The region  .  but seemed  to   be   mineral-bearing,  aud  I, near  the   Porcupine  frequently   showed  coal sigiirs."' , -        ���������  . .

Dr. TVHgiiot. of Paris, i.aa pa������>:t,ined  t%n inteiestiiiir accotins of the mutilation  of the teeth prac-ti'-ed by v;;ri<"xs sava^v-  tribes. One variety, vvhiolt- ifc c-iitily  _iet with on the coasts of Africa and the  went coast of New Guinea, consists of  ' the breaking of a portion of the iuci.sor  by means of a knife and-a piece of wood,  .Kid is performed between the ages of  'AVfsnly and twenty-five. Tlie custom of  axtraoting the two central incisors is  found in both' hemispheres. According  , 7,0 Zerate, it has been practiced, in Pei u  from time immemorial, where it is inflicted on conquered tribes as a shjn of  slavery. Iu Africa it has been observed  on the Congo, among'the Hottentots and  ' the Batosaa. Tho mutilation by'filing  has for .ts exclusive center the ilalarau  ArciMpelas?o, whence it has spread to the  adjoining islands. It is a religious act,  which is celebrated with great, festivities  .1. the ago of puberty, but this only \:y  ���������;he Mohammedans. The <iegroe and  character of this filintc vary with the  habits of family or caste." The operation  is performed by an expert, the Tulcang  nullum- (filer), by means of a chisel, threo  bricks, two files, a small saw, and a pair  ���������t,u. Jin?nippers, tlieinst-rumontsbe.'.ay  rubi.v il.wi'.h arsenic and lemon juice bo  lor,  neintr used.  ' 11'is the fashion among some tribes on  tho Senegal Eiver to extract the upper  temporary iiicisors in girls when quite  young and to manipulate the chin, so  that it is drawn forward and the lower  incisors aro made -to protrude eo as to  jvertap the upper lip. thus producing an  ���������iru-icial prognathism. In Indo-Ciiiun  ma Japan a girl on her marriage p.iints  'irir toeth with a black varnish. However, as t'us operation requires time and  money^ it is only practiced by/the wealthy class. Livingstone reported that  among' the, Ivaiirs a child whose upper  teeth erupted before the lower ones was  regarded as a monster and killed. On  fchti ITppijr Nfile the negroes Jiavo their  ripper incisors extracted, in order to  avoid being sold as slaves, becauso of  the Jo.ss of value brought about by this  mutilation.

From the long lapse of years, Cordelia Fancourt had begun to look back  at tho sad, sad past as through a mist,  till all 'grew dim nnd indistinct, like  the figures in a dream; but a coarse,  cruel hand,.���������tears the veil aside, and all  the horror is clear as a thing of yesterday.  She had another interview with Cyril  Ormsby���������a      painful ,,   interview,      with  tears on both sides;  fox the story    the  p: or lady  was  compelled  to  tell   struck  'the. young man to the heart.  -  Tie saw the cruelty of- the situation.  To stay in the house one minute longer  (ban he was able to drag himself away  was  impossible.  He would go; yes, he would go; but  still not without hope- There was a  terrible accusation, but with no positive  proof- There was an awful mystery,  but a mystery which, by,ceaseless effort.  he might pierce.  It was a labor of duty; it was a labor  of lovo; and to that labor he would devote his  life.  So   Cyril   Ormsby   quitted   Oakwoods,  and  with   these  parting  words  to   Miss  Fancourt:  "T  have  but one lovo  in the  world, and that is the love I bear Miss  Willoughby.   The   obstacles  that   separate us I will  endeavor to  remove; but  1   will   not.   because   I   cannot,   promise  that  I   will   see   her  no   more-     "Let   !t  be   sullicient,   Miss     Fancourt,     that  I  pledge  my  honor   never  to   repay   your  kindness to  me by ingratitude-"  - And  so  Cyril  Ormsby left the  house  that had    sheltered    him,     no     lonigex  wounded in body but Lacerated in heart.  He had decided  to  go  to London at  once,   to  see   his  iate  father's  solicitors  and   agents.     From   them,   armed   with  the   kno.vledge   he   now     possessed, he  would,  he must,  hear the entire  story,  without the omission of a single detail.  "The  scandal   is  heavy,"     Miss  Fan-  cMirt had'said;  "but nothing can shake  me in my belief���������my full and entire belief   in   my   sister's  innocence.".,  Mr. Cyril Ormsby," said Jane Steer,  as, with tears streaming down hev  c-heeks, she pressed his hand in sad  farewell���������"credit nothing you may hea<r  against the honor of your father, or the  fair fame of my lady.

It was by no means a typical ease, of melancholia, however, and  finally, after much questioning, she confessed to me that she was suffering from  ah extraordinary; hallucination and was  in mortal dread of becoming insane. ,She  said she had recently had an artist paint  a large oil portrait of her husband, and  whenever she entered the parlor where it  hung the eyes turned in their sockets and  looked at her.  "I went down stairs at once to inspect  the picture, and, just as I anticipated, I  found that the painter had introduced the  trick effect which I have described. No  matter where' I stood' the gaze of the  painted face seemed to be fastened directly upon me. .

Presently I  suggested that we go down and look at  the painting together. She-consented reluctantly, but as soon as'she saw it she  drew a deep breath of relief. It no longer stared fixedly at her.

A group of cattlemen at the live stock  convention at Bl Reno were talking  about the skill of Oklahoma cowboys in  throwing the lariat when R. E. Word,  Sr.,'whose home is at Higgins, Tex., but  whose cattle are mostly- in Oklahoma,  said: "I had an experience roping when  I was a young man which put me through  a lively gait. As a Texan who had followed the range all his life, I felt that  there was not a broncho on top of the  ground that could throw me and nothing  on'four legs that I couldn't rope and tie.  In the Hummer of 1871 I was on the Little Arkansas river about five miles south  of Wichita, Kan. I had a splendid horse,  trained for the range and almost as intelligent as a man. One afternoon I  came suddenly upon five big buffalo bulls  that; had wandered away from the main  herd. I pulled my, pistol, killed one of  them and, not having time to reload, decided to rope one. Shortly afterward I  found myself with a big job on'ray hands.  "At the first throw my rope dropped  around the old bull's horns. Now, when'  a buffalo makes 'up his mind to go anywhere in a rush he travels in a straight  line. You may be able to turn him a  little, but in the main he will keep his  course. That was what this bull did.  Me headed toward the Little Arkansas,  with the evident intention of crossing it.  My horse, always fearless when handling  cattle, was timid when in close quarters  with a buffalo, and, I ..was unable to check  the bull, who soon had me going south at  a lively clip. I was becoming of the opinion that the only way out of my trouble  was to cut my rope and let the bull carry  it off. ,  ,, "The Little Arkansas is narrow" in  places, while at no great distance away  will be found pools four and five feet  deep and from 25 to 40 feet wide. The  bull, rushed headlong into one of these  pools. The opposite bank was perpendicular and about a foot and a half above  the water. Taking in the situation quickly, I saw that I could run out my rope  far enough to'enable my horse to cross at  a narrow, shallow place. He jumped  across, in fact, ahead of the bull, which  had to wade. My horse had to keep going and jerked the rope, taut just as the  bull started to climb up the bank. The  jerk pulled the bull's nose into the water  and bis shaggy head against the perpendicular bank. He made a great uproar,  but my horse held him there as in a vise.  Strange as it may seem, I succeeded in  keeping that . bull's nose under water  until he drowned. I always regarded this  as my most brilliant feat of roping."���������Ok-,  lahorna Cor. in Kansas City Star. ���������  '-���������  subjects of conversation with her callers  is sj'ndicating her sorrows.���������^'Kingship of  Self Control." ., ' '  Too Frank.

"You have asked me to the castle  most kindly," he answered quietly,  "but I am a busy man. as you know,  mademoiselle, and have to deny myself  many pleasures. I have ventured to  intrude on you, for which you must  please lay the blame solely on me, because I have a little patient down there  in the village whose recovery seems to  depend entirely on you."  "On me!"  "My patient is a little child who has  been at death's door through fever and  whose one desire, night aud day, has  been to hear you sing. We thought it  a delirious fancy that would pass, but  it seems that, had she been well, she  was to have come up to the castle one  day, when you sang to the villagers  and that s?Te lost her chance through  this illness.

Half an hour later, with all her soul  in her exquisite voice, she was standing in the cottage singing a song of  life and love to, the bewildered villagers, while the sick child, propped up  by pillows to hear the desire of her  honrt. cried out that it was an angel  who" had come in answer to her prayers.  *        f     ���������  *        *.      *        *        *  It was midnight, 12 hours since Eva  had charmed away the shadow of  death from the .village home, and she  was holding a great assembly hushed  and spellbound, while ber voice, no  longer softened and subdued, rang  with all its glorious power through the  large opera hall which she had lately  added to her castle. ��������� -  It was the moment of her crowning  triumph, the moment when Desdemo-  na, realizing to the full her danger and  the inflexible purpose of Othello, transformed by jealousy into a murderer,  ceases to plead for her life and instead  proudly and passionately declares her  innocence.  Count Devas, the Italian singer who  had already. won-' universal applause  for his wonderful rendering of Othello,  faced her, the madness of rage that  was consuming him portraj-ed vividly  in every feature of his face, in every  movement of his tense, nervous fingers.  ��������� There was silence, intense, dead silence, for an instant as Eva's last note  died away, and then; as she covered  her' e3Tes with her hands, the count,  with one swift step', was at her side,  pressing with ruthless hands the cushion on her upturned face, and the curtain began slowly to descend on the  death scene.  An electric thrill ran through the audience, the horror and despair of the  tragedy before them, seemed suddenly  real and tangible, the scream, strangled in its birth, that came from the  beautiful-singer seemed an appeal to  them for help, and then an amazing  thing occurred. \    <���������-  I felt sure he meant mischief.

Oh, tell me how to thank you!"  "I dare ask nothing," he said, "since  I dare not ask too much."  And they were both silent.  But in their silence- a hope and a  promise lay. And there are some who  say that the most beautiful singer of  the day will exercise the prerogative  that her pre-eminence gives to her and  will make a romantic marriage entirely for her.���������Penny Pictorial Magazine  The Way Humorists Do.

In tbe excitement of the scene no one  had noticed the sudden arrival in the  hall of Dr. Harrowden, who, pale and  breathless, stood watching the descent  of the curtain, until, apparently overpowered by impulse, he ran up the hall.,  leaped up to the stage and, springing  across the footlights, threw himself  upon tbe count..  In the desperate struggle that ensued",  momentary as it was. before the paralyzed onlookers rushed to separate the  combatants, no one noticed that*Eva  herself had not moved and lay still  under the cushions.  There was,the flash of a knife, an  exclamation from Dr. Harrowden, and  then, asN he dropped, stabbed in the  shoulder, a dozen bands were on the  count, and. though he fought with the  limitless strength of a madman,- he  was overpowered at last by numbers  and carried off the stage, bound and  helpless.  Dr. Harrowden. whose faintness was  only temporary, had risen already and.  disregarding the help offered him, hurried to the couch and raised the  cushions. *  Eva lay there insensible, with the  marks on her white neck where the  count's fingers had gone near to suffocating her.  Dr. Harrowden bent and laid his ear  to her lips and heart.  "She is not dead," be said briefly.  "Carry ber to her room. I will attend  to her."  Wondering exclamations broke out  on all sides. What had happened? Had  the count really attempted Eva's life?  ���������How had the doctor been aware of her  danger? and a thousand other questions and surmises. Later, when Eva,  very weak and ill, had recovered con  sciousness. she told the story of the  count's strange, wild love for her. an  infatuation which had seized him when  they first met in the opera house at  Milan, of ber inability to shake off the  influence which he exercised over her  in spite of her dread and dislike of him.  of his appearance at the castle when  she was arranging the cast of "Othello." and Imperious demand to be allowed to remain there and to play the  title role.  ������.*'���������*        *        *        ���������        *  "How can I ever thank you enough?"  she said to Dr. Harrowden when, after  many days of suffering from the  count's stiletto wound, be came, at  hor-'request to see her. "It was a miracle that you should have saved me as  you did. A moment longer, and it  would have been too late. How did  3'ou guess that his acting was reality?"  "The thanks are due really to yourself," he said gently. "Your kindness  in singing to that poor little child was  the cause of your preservation. I went  to see ber that evening and found her  just awakened from a strange dream  of you, which had left the impression  on her mind that you were in danger.  'The beautiful lady with the angel's  voice,' she called you. She would not  be comforted until I promised to go up  to the castle and assure myself that no  harm threatened you. Her persistence  gave me a touch of anxiety, and it  came to me with a sort of intuition as  I watched the count that he was mad. '  4.-.. ��������� ,  MUtakea In  Christening.  At Rams'bury Manor. England, there  ,once resided a poulterer's family of the  name of Duck. The third son was to  be christened, and tbe mother wanted  the name to be William. Just before  starting for church the nurse, ran up  stairs to the father, who was laid up  with gout, to tell him they were off.  "What be going to call un, nurse?"  "Missus says it's to be William," was  the reply. "William be blowed!" said  the invalid. "Call un plain Bill;" In  accordance with these laconic Instructions the nurse.gave the name of Plain-  bill to the clergyman, and the infant  was christened accordingly.  Id an even' funnier way is the queer  Christian name of Mr. Ono Tichiner of  Peckham accounted, for. When his  parents and sponsors arrived at the  church, his name had not been settled  upon, and when the clergyman said,  "Name this child.".one of the friends  said "John," and another said "Oh,  no!" moaning not John, and. as no one  else spoke, the clergyman thought that  was to be his name and baptized him  Ono. The full account of the baptism  is contained in Blanch's "History of  Camberwell."  A clergyman's son ..vouches for the  following: "My father was baptizing a  -boy of G years of age. The names given were Benjamin Joseph. After the  ^ceremony he said to the boy, 'You have  two very good names, and you ought  to be a good boy; How did you come  by them?' 'Please; sir,' said the boy.  'we was twins,'and the other died!' "   -  1 Gem of London Humor.  "  "Well, goodby. Mr. Green.   It was so  nice of you  to come.

"I've seen that proven  more  than  once  at  sea. '  Back  in  'S6,   to   give  you   an  illustration,   , I  was first oflicer on a ship going from  'Frisco     to       San   Salvador.'      Down  about latitude lo we picked up eight  men   in   a   boat.     They  came   off   the  Liverpool  tramp   Scipio,   bound  from  Japan  to  New   York,   and it  seemed,  from -what      they  told'us,   th���������t her  boiler  had  exploded   when  they  were  somewhere   ofi  the Revilla-Uigedo   Islands.

'   The     others     on  board, went   down .with   the   wreck.  Of  course  they had  no  time  to  provision,      and    what   little  food   they  were able  to   snatch  up  as   they "left  van   out   on   the   second   day.      Altogether they had  been afloat five days  when we picked  them up,  three days  withoat food  of any kind,  and every  man   in   the  party  looked  to   be     on  the actual  verge  of starvation.  They  had      passed   through   a  horrible  ordeal,   to   be  sure,   but  they   were   all  big. husky fellows,  and the length of  time they had been without food did  not  begin   to   account  for  their  famished   appearance.     Their  checks   had  fallen in, their eyes were hollow, ana  they  were  so  weak  they  could  hardly  get  aboard..    That  wasn't  caused  by      hunger      but by  fear of hunger.

'-."  New     Zealand     Aborigines      Supply  Their Enemies With Food.  We are accustomed to speak of the humane and chivalrous manner in which  modern fighting is carried on and to congratulate ourselves upon the advauco  which has been' made in this respect.  But is this advance as great and as  real as we imagine? For example, how  do our present day customs of war compare with the old time fighting methods  of the Maoris, the natives of New Zealand? It will surprise a good many peo-,  ,ple to hear that when ii band of Maori  warriors was going to fight the warriors  of another tribe it was not unusual for  the numbers it was proposed-to place in  the field to be communicated to the enemy. Moreover, one side often provided  the other with arms and provisions, so  that the enemy might not be placed at  too groat a disadvantage.  Here are a few stories which illustrate  the generosity which the- Maoris of former days displayed toward their enemies.  A chief was asked why, when on a certain occasion he had command of tho  road, he did not, attack the ammunition  and provision trains of the'English. The  Maori, utterly astonished at such a question, exclaimed, "Why. you. fool, if we--  had stolen their powder, and'food, how  could they have fought?"  Another chief, who considered that he  had been insulted by the chief of a neighboring tribe, said that, the other chief,  had he not been much the stronger of the  two in arms and ammunition, would not-  have dared to act in so insulting a manner. This speech came to the ears of the  neighboring chief,, who thereupon divided  his arms and ammunition into two equal  parts and sent one half, along with an  invitation to fight, to chief.No. 1.  On another occasion a. chief who wa*,  fighting against us and who was short  of guns andi powder sent this'message  to the governor: "My custom with regard to my enemy is if he has not a  weapon I give him one, that", he may  fight on equal terms. Now, oh, governor,  are vou not ashamed of my defenseless  hands?" "' '"-        .   "  A clergyman who lived for a long time-  in  New  Zealand  relates  how  in  one of  the  intertribal   wars   the   besieged   sent,,  word to the enemy that they were short  of provisions,  and the besiegers at  once,,  handed over a supply of food.i    ',  " But we need not go all the way to'New"  Zealand for an'example of supplying am- '  munition  to an enemy,  for.  ifivthe story'  be true,  it would,appear that something  of this sort once occurred in the English,  channel, when a British admiral was try-  ,  ing conclusions with a Dutch admiral.-���������  London Mail.  HERITAGE  OF THE  SEXES.  Yncntnn  Rains.  "Apropos of the   wonderful  ancient  ruins in Yucatan," said a New Orleans  A Slrrewd,   Farmer.  A city gentleman who had just  purchased a farm in the country,  wished to buy some cattle -with  which to stock it. He therefore attended an auction where cows were  to be sold. One of t'heni, a remarkably fine animal, soon attracted his  attention, and he bought her at a  fair price. He was examining his  pin-chase, when a farmer, who unfortunately had arrived too late to  buy the cow himself as he had intended, drove up, and thus accosted  hi'tr:  "I   say,   friend,   did     you   bid     off  that cow?"    .  "I did,"  was tlie reply.  "Well,  did  you  know that  she  had  no front teeth in the upper jaw?"  "No,"   replied   the   gentleman,      indignantly.  "Is that so?"   .  "You can see for yourself."  The gentleman examined  the mouth  of  the  cow,      and   finding  no     upper  teeth,  immedaifcly  went  to  the  auctioneer and  requested  him  to sell the  cow again.  "What's the trouble?" asked the  auctioneer.  "She hasn't any upper front  teeth,"  was   the  reply.  "Very well," replied the auctioneer  with a smile, "I'll put her up once  more."  He did so and the shrewd farmer  who had given the information to  the city gentleman, bid her off at the  same  price.  An Apologrne  Suggested  by ItcacIIiitf  Drnmmond's "Ascent 'of Man."  When the'first man and woman had  left* the seclusion of the Garden, crossed  the river of Possibility and stood upon  the shore of Time, ready for their onward, journey toward Posterity, ,the Angel'of Opportunity appeared to ,them and -*'  said: '  "Man.  make  a   prayer to  Nature  and  Life.  Petition wisely, for whatsoever you  ask shall.be the heritage of .your sex for  ever."  And the man thought and thought,,  then, looking 'up at the glowing sun, exclaimed. 'Oh, Nature, do not thrust your  greatest throes upon me. nor persist in-  making me remember pain."  The' angel said to the woman. *,'Pray  thou also with wisdom."  As the woman bent low her head she  softly said: "Oh, Nature, do not allow me  to grow callous nor empty.   Hold me close   '  to the joys, so few. the sorrows, so many,  that I may gain strength from each."  Again the angel bade the man pray,  and once more he stood ^and looked toward the glowing sun, saying: "Oh. Life* ���������  give me joy and pleasure. Do not unload  upon me the sorrows of others; do not  open my eyes to pangs I cannot assuage..  Give rao sweets and, the power to cast  aside regret."  "Sister." said the angel, "pray."   ,  The woman bent still lower, and in a  softer voice uttered' her petition: "Oh,  Life, do not take away from me the mem-  ory of sorrow, the shell holding the kernel'  of joy; do not allow me to become blind  to the debt I owe others. Make me tender; give me a woman's portion, pain,  that I may attain my full stature;"  And. that the angf-.l's promise might be-  redeemed, from that hour there was implanted in man the overmastering love of  pleasure and ingrafted in the heart of  woman the undying instincts' of motherhood.���������George Denton Canlield in New  Lippihcbtt.
