buck,   the   grown   couple    walked
slowly, for the hill is steep and the
path is   stony   and   rough.     The
two  boys   ran   on  ahead.    Pretty
soon they came rushingb*ck, panting and   perspiring.    "Ol   mother,
we saw a grouse down there!'. The

'  6  - ���������  -    ���������  ���������������������������*���������������������������������������������������  One day as he entered.the vestibule of  a large house inhabited by merchants and  government officials he found the janitor  sorting the morning mail and .putting  some of the letters into the mail boxes  which were nailed to the wall near the  front staircase. Somehow Hansa caught,;  a glimpse of one of the letters. The ad-  . dress struck-him as being in a familiar  handwriting, and no sooner had the janitor dropped the letter into one of the  boxes than it flashed upon him that" it  was Wilhelmina's/ ^A wild feeling of  curiosity took hold of Hansa. His sweetheart had never, told him she knew anybody in this remote part of the city,.'much-  less .that.-she was in correspondence with  a resident of this house.; Who could it  be? 'Or was he mistaken? Was* it merely an accidental similarity of .handwriting?. He burned to see'the", letter once  more, and, as his eyes met the janitor's  lie asked involuntarily:  "Whose box is it?"   ':'���������������������������'.���������.  "A young gentleman's. He has lived  here since Christmas. He is a young  painter. He is single,, yet he occupies a  large apartment.; He's,rich and handsome," said the janitor, with" obsequious  garrulity.;    V /'��������� :~   ���������'7:''  Ludwig's heart sank within; him.    At  the same time lie was overcome, with a  . keen sense of his self humiliation at discussing a gentleman with a janitor.  "You are not-' asked to tell /all this," he  said grufUy and; betook himself to ���������. the  house of his uncle, ^the pld town hail  clerk, on the third floor, rear staircase.  ' That evening; Hansa -said to Wilhelmina: ',  "As I passed through K��������� street this  morning   I   met',an; old   chum   of   mine  whom 1 had not -seen' for three years,"  and "as he spoke-, he watched her closely  to see the. effect which tlie mention of the  street would have on; her.    She blushed,  Bure enough! - The blood  rushed  to  his  face, then back to his heart, and he felt  held to the spot.   Was he mistaken ?<>  If  he wasj why did she not even ask what  he had been dping on K.������������������--. street ?    At  all  events,  he  repeated,- the  name  again  '-. and again,  staring her full  in the  face.  She did not exactly blush, but her eyes  certainly had.-an .unsteady look in them.  She seemed to'/be painfully embarrassed.  "What's the matter, Wilhelmina?" he  asked.  "Nothing."    '   "'  "Aw you sick?"  "What's got into you?"  "But you lo.pk���������-oi'-f-I .thought���������-er���������you  looked���������er���������indisposed."  v    She burst out'-ltt'tighiiig, and he couldn't  help joining mi;..���������but,in. the depths of his  heart lay a trouble which  was growing  more excruciating ''every  minute.    If he  could only ask-her .and-have done with  it!    But this, he had hot the heart to do.  Indeed she might :t-alce offense and return  his  engagement ring.   .The judge  shuddered to think of it.       .  The next day he went to his uncle's.  As he passed the painter's letter box he  took a look at the peepholes in the door.  There were no letters within.  His curiosity kept growing and with it  his wretchedness1^-'  "What were you laughing at the other  day, Wilhelmina?" he inquired.  "When?" she asked with a blank .face.  "When I was telling you, about K   street."  "K streetU' she echoed.    "Where is  K street?."*: v  "Can it be 'that she does not remember  the way she burst out laughing that day  or is she acting a part?" he asked himself.    "She certainly heard me speak of  K street."  "Why, I told you I met a friend whom  I had not seen for three years, and"���������  "That I remember, but what has that  got to do with K ��������� street?" she demanded rather testily.  "Simply this," he answered morosely,  "that I  told  you  how  my  friend  and  I  had met on K street."  "But what of it?   What difference does  it make whether it was K  street or  Charlottcn street or any other street?"  "To you it docs not perhaps, but to me  it does," he declared vehemently and  dropped his glance.  "I don't know what you're talking  about, Ludwig," she rejoined, whereupon  he scrutinized her face, for some moments, and, convincing himself that her  remark was perfectly sincere, he broke  into a merry laugh as he said:  "I.don't know what I am talking about  myself."  They went out for a walk and passed  a happy evening together, and as he proceeded on his way home he berated himself for a jealous idiot and a booby. He  went to bed in excellent spirits and slept  like a top. Nevertheless the next morning as he bent over his washstaud and  began rolling up the sleeve of his undershirt a disagreeable thought planted itself in his brain. There was a question  mark to that thought. "Can it be that  she was fooling me; that it was all acting?" he asked himself. "If she loves  somebody else, what made her accept  me?" he argued and regained his composure, but the next moment he reflected  that the painter might be prevented from  marrying Wilhelmina. He imagined a  weird love intrigue, a mysterious plot  with  his  Wilhelmina   as  its  central   fig  ure,   and  his  curiosity and  the  mystery  grew and grew.  "What  nils you?"  she asked  him  one  dav. noticing his worried look.  "Nothing at all."  "But you look out of sorts."  '   He assured her he was in good spirits,  but inwardly wondered whether her questions wero not part of a complex scheme  to deceive him.  One day, as he entered the vestibule of  the  house where his uncle  lived,  lie beheld  a  letter, in  the  painter's  box.     He  took a close look at it through the little  holes  in   the  door.  and.  oh.  horrors,   he  was sure the "len" which he could raak"  but near the corner of the envelope was  In   her   handwriting.     An   ungovernable  Jesiro to pry out the letter and to see me  whole address seized Ludwig.    He struggled with the temptation like a lion.    He  cursed himself,  he gnashed his teeth, he  growled, but he took out his penknife all  the same.   He put it back into his pocket,  asked himself whether he was crazy, but  two or three minutes later, when he was  about, to open his uncle's door, he suddenly started back, and before he could stop  himself  he  stood,  knife  in   hand,   struggling, not with his own temptation,  but  with  the  letter.     IJe  was  all  perspiring  and the letter was fairly covered with the  pricks of his knife, and when he had got  hold of it at last and was about to fish  it out footsteps  were' heard  outside  the  gate,   and   the   judge,   turning   pale, as  death,  let  go  of  his  quarry  and   tiptoed  his way back to his uncle's door.  That night he dreamed of a letter box.  It was somehow confused with his courtroom. Each peephole in the door was at  the same time an eye, an eye which was  winking, while a crowd of people- were  hooting and jeering at him.  "This foolishness must stop," he said  to himself in the morning. But it did not  stop, and a week had not passed before  he found himself in front of the terrible  letter box once more, grappling with his  temptation and���������the painter's letter. This  time he fished it out undisturbed, but to  his .great joy and at the same time to  his great chagrin, the address turned out  ���������to be so utteriy unlike Wilhelmina's chi-  rography that he hastily slid it back. But  then the next letter he pulled out was  addressed in a hand 'so strikingly like  hers that his head grew dizzy, and he  seemed on the verge of a fainting spell.  He heard a noise, however, and in his  rush to restore the letter to the box he  escaped the fainting spell, which was an  excellent thing" to escape; but; then, how  was he to find out what Wilhelmina was  writing to that accursed painter? "<.)>���������.  heavens!" ' he exclaimed, dropping his  arms in blank despair. , "Who is he?  What is he? Why have I not the courage to speak to her frankly, openly, and  put an end to my misery?"  77*:'        **������**������  "What's the matter with my letters?"  asked the'painter,, holding out one which  was all slashed at one end and full of  triangular holes in the center.  "'1*11 ask the letter carrier," answered  the janitor.  ���������'Never mind asking the letter carrier,"  retorted the painter. "I have spoken to  him myself,' and he says ho delivers my  letters free from pockmarks. This is the  fifth letter I have received in this condition. There must be some fiend in the  case, some fellow who has a knife and  doesn't know what to do with it, and I  -tell you, this thing will have to stop or  I'll move to a place where my mail will  be safe."  The upshot of it was that a trap was  set, and his honor was caught with an  empty envelope in his hand.  "So you are the-chap!" shouted the  janitor, grabbing him by the collar. "You  are dressed like a gentleman, but you act  like a miserable sneak.",  "Hush,- hush!" the unhappy young man  besought his captor. -"A great misfor  tune has befalh-u me, but I'll explain the  matter to your satisfaction and make it  worth your while if you only make no  noise and let the affair go no further."  "What! Bribing, me to keep quiet?  Who are you. anyhow, and what do you  do here.so often?   Are you a thief?"  Hansa trembled. '"After this I have no  right to continue as judge. I.am going  to resign," he thought to himself. "I am  going to commit suicide," he added* u  moment later. ��������� ,        .    ���������  There was nothing for it but to tell the  janitor about his uncle. As good luck  would have it the uncle was an old and  respected tenant, and, what was still  more to the purpose, the aunt and the  janitross were bosom friends. The matter was hushed up \vithout Hansa being  put to the necessity of telling the~whole  truth. -"    .  "It struck me as if it were the handwriting of a man whom I used to know,"  he said. and. although the explanation  was anything but exhaustive, no further  questions were asla-d. And as the offense was not repeated the janitor was  satisfied and the episode soon faded out  of his mind.  The incident cured Hansa of his jealousy and of part of his sentimentality.  The wedding took place shortly after,  and now he presides over the proceedings  of lils court with his old time, dignity,  but often when he gives himself airs, he  cheeks himself. Often, too, when about  to pronounce a heavy sentence the letter  box stands forth before his mind's eye-  urging the weakness of human nature  and "pleading for mercy. The judge smiles  when he thinks of that affair.    "What a  prepared by. professional medalists. ���������  As many as 2,7>i>0 unclaimed medals  have accumulated at a time at the war  office. Unclaimed medals are ultimately  melted down at the mint into coin of the  realm, though every effort is made- to  trace the owner or his heirs.  Some years ago a naval medal was  struck and distributed to soldiers for a  frontier trouble in India. This medal  had "nothing to do with the case." and  collectors have been puzzled by the ships  and sails of an engagement fought on  dry land.  On one occasion 45.000 tin medals were  sent out for the native troops in India.  Tin has now been abolished, and silvi-r  and bronze.are the orthodox medal metals.  A' Seotntnnn'H Economy.

Cattleman or Gambler,  "One day last fall," said a well  known Montana capitalist, "I was riding on a train in my state and got to be  on pretty fair terms with the train boy  by buying a few of the things he had  to sell. It was not a very formal.kind  of a train, and when the boy had finished his rounds he came over to sit  with me and 'chin a bit,' as he said. I  was willing enough, as he was a sharp  lad and there was nobody else to talk  to, and he went right at things.  " 'Do you know,' he said, 'that I can  tell by looking at a man mighty near  what he is. Now, there's that fellow  over there in the corner; he's a Chicago  drummer. I can tell him by the way  he lets his money go and the flip style  he has when he talks to people. And  that chap over there with the silk hat  on; he's a preacher from a country  town, I'm dead sure, and I'll go ask  him if you say so.'  "I didn't say so because I didn't care  a continental, and the boy went on  with bis descriptions of the people on  the train. At last I asked him what  he thought. I was. I had on a pretty  flashy suit of light stuff and was thinking I was looking pretty well, so I was  willing to risk the boy's venture. He  looked me over for a full minute very  carefully.  ������  " 'Well,' he said at last, 'you've got a  sloo of money, but I ain't dead sure  whether yo������ are a cattleman o>* a gambler.'

Of late years the general view has  been that the interior of the globe,  though partly liquid, is for the most  part solid. Some have considered that  a section through the earth would  show the following:  (1) An outer solid envelope, (2) a  semifluid envelope, (3) a fluid envelope, (4) a smeifluid envelope, (5) a solid  nucleus. No. 1 results from a reduced  temperature only. No. 2 from a pressure and temperature not quite sufficient for liquidation, No. 3 from a temperature sufficiently high to produce  complete liquidation, No. 4 from a  pressure so great as to prevent even  the terrific heat which niost certainly  exists deep down in, the earth from  completely liquefying the material on  which it works, and No. 5 from a pressure which overcomes completely the  liquefying power even of the maximum heat of the interior.  This pressure is estimated to be at  the center of the earth 7.180,593,750  pounds to the square foot, a pressure  so enormous that no known substance  could fuse beneath it. Even hydrogen  at the highest possible temperature,  would under such conditions become  as hard as a diamond. Hence it seems  probable that, far from there being a  vacuum at the center of the earth,  there is a basis r>f intensely solid matter there.  One of the newest things for the neck  is the Ellen-Terry bat wing tie made of  silk in pastel colorings.  Surplice bodice fronts with long scarf  ends and fichus, boleros and countless  guises of the fancy waist are among the  attractions for the summer season.  The newest French boas lie fiat around  the neck, the under side being formed  merely of net, which on the outside is  completely covered with coquilles or cascades of lace or chiffon edged with a tiny  frill of chantilly.  Finely shirred skirt tops with matching  bodice yokes are features of some of the  French gowns of batiste, Belfast dimity,  India mull, organdie and China silk. The  long sleeves or portions of the sleeve are  similarly shirred.  The Empire, Gainsborough and, Main-  tenon hats appear among exclusive styles  in high priced French millinery. The  shapes are unusually large and show the  eccentricity of crown and brim characteristic of these historic models.  Mammoth hydrangeas, poppies and  chrysanthemums, huge carnations, cabbage roses and azaleas made of gauze,  chiffon or rumpled crepe lisse appear as  the most fashionable of trimmings on  French hats of zephyr straw made really  for Easter wear.  Maple, ivy and bronze and yellow oak  leaves are used on leghorn hats trimmed  with crepe lisse and wide velvet ribbon.  Not only is the foliage artistically intermingled with the decoration on the. hat,  but separate leaves are laid flat upon the  outside of the brim around its entire cir-.  cumference.

War medals, says The Army and Navy  Journal, were instituted by Charles I to  decorate the leaders of forlorn hopes.  There were a good many forlorn hopes  in the reign of Charles I.  Gorgeous gold medals used to be given  away after a "famous victory." The  numbers of medals distributed in modern  warfare make the use of gold impossible.  The modern medal is made of the hard  and lasting silver of the same standard  as is used for the current coinage, and  each medal is the size and weight of a  5 shilling piece (one ounce).

Some years ago Colonel Crisp was in  New York, aud being in'attendance at  a certain notable political gathering in  Madison Square Garden was called upon for a speech. And did he accept?  Well, rather! Running his fingers  through his hair, adjusting his vest  and pushing up his coat sieeves. he  started in to sprinkle eagle feathers all  over the stage. Now, the colonel is a  stout man and has a thirst in proportion. In the course of his passionate  harangue he became very warm and  asked that some water be provided. In  compliance with the request a diminutive pitcher and dainty little glass were  brought and placed before him.  Colonel Crisp looked at it intently for  a few moments, and then "What, is  this?" he thundered.  "W-w-water," timidly answered one  of the vice presidents.  "Young man," bellowed the colonel,  his nostrils quivering with suppressed  rage, "either bring me a bucket and a  gourd or lead me to the branch."���������Kansas City Independent.

(,  There are .naturally a number of  sweeping curves through the Urals,  but a.11 tunnelling has been avoided.  The writer did not see a single tunnel in the Ural Range. It is a remarkable fact that during the trans-  Siberian Railway inspection the writer did not ' observe a tunnel anywhere; and even after continuing the  inspection right into the heart of  Russia, about 2,000 miles more of  line had been, covered' before he saw  the first tunnel. This was near Tyfii,  not far from the illustrious Tolstoi's  home; and it was while responding to  a pre-arranged invitation from le  grande Russe that the writer came  across this, the first tunnel noted, after 0,000 miles of overland railway  inspection.  A "Russian railway engineer would  sooner blow up a small mountain,  than make a tunnel, leaving a yawning chasm between the rocks, with  two "streaks of rust" at the bottom  thereof as a souvenir of his activity.  Or, if he finds that, after going to  the mountain, the mountain is not  likely to yield to him, his instructions are to-circumvent it by a long  detour. . Anything to avoid tunneling!

Iu conversation with a   reporter   Mrs.   Doddridge  said:���������"For quite   a number of years I  have been a terrible sufferer  from dyspepsia, accompauied by the  sick headaches that almost invariably come with  this trouble.    I   suffered from terrible  pains in   the   stomach,   bloating   aud  belching wind.    All   food   seemed    to  disagree with me, and as   a  result  of  the trouble,   I   was   very   much    run  down, and at times I was unable to do  even light house work.     I   am   sure   I  tried a score   of   different  medicines,  but without success, and as  I am sixty  years of age,   had come   to believe that  it was hopeless to   expect  a cure.    A  friend who had used Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills with good results,    urged  me   to  try this   medicine,    and   my  husband  brought home a couple   of boxes.    Before they were   finished  I   felt   much  better, and we then   got  another half  dozen boxes, and these have completely  restored my health, and I not only feel  better than I have done for years,  but  actaally feel   younger.    I very   cheerfully recommend Dr.    Williams'   Pink  Pills to similar sufferers.  If your dealer does not keep these  pills, they will be sent postpaid at 50  cents a box, or six boxes for $2.50 by  addressing the Dr. Williams' Medicine  Co., Brockville, Onfe.  \     EVERYTHING . . . %  I     *^F0R THE PRINTER 8S  ' w  i *  \      We keep a large Stock always on     ^  } hand of jg  !

X-RAYS AS DETECTIVE.  An Interesting Attempt to Find a Gem  '    in an Indian Interior.  From  Daily Mall.  The notion of using Roentgen rays as an  aid to the discovery of stolen property supposed to be concealed in the body of the  thief was .put Into practice in Calcutta jail  recently, but with small success. The sub  ject of the experiment is a man accused of  having- stolen and swallowed a diamond  worth 10,000 rupees in a Calcutta jeweller's  shop.  The   Investigation   disclosed   that  he had  something In his throat, the Roentgen rays  did not say what, and the local doctors are  onsiderlng  the   question  of  extracting  it,  he jeweller meanwhile anxiously awaiting  the result.  It   seems   that   in   Fome   of   the   thieves  ehools in India a regular course of trainiMg  e gone through In the art of "pouching,'  r concealing articles of value in the throat.  The Englishman, a newspaper published  n  Calcutta thus describes the process:-  "At first a small piece of lead, attached  o a thread is swallowed, and guided by the  ction of the tongue to the orifice of the 8.i ���������  u the throat. As soon as this has beer  horoughly learned, the lead is coated with  ime.    This eats into the sac aud enlarges  KrndUn.i^l ������f th<\art,cle t0 be pouched  is  giadually  increased,   until,   it  |��������� snid  th.t  maiiy of the Indinntbieves can pouch eight  <>r leu rupees at once."  Tho prosecution produced an old convict  who swallowed and reproduced dice the si'yj,  of the missing diamond before the court.

The   British   Net   Losses   Only  Number  About Ten Thousand.  From South Africa.  General Botha was not magnanimous  when he released tlie Nooitgedaclifpris'  oners;, he was simply consulting ���������ais1  own interest from a commissariat'point  of view. Still, whatever the cause, with  the happy release of these prisoners that  item on our list of casualties is prac'i-  eally .wiped off the slate. The oifiJai  list of-casualties gives the total diniiu'ii-  tion of fighting strength shfee the cam  paign began as 40,5'il., or nearly a filth  of the aggregate force under arms. But  on . analyzing the details ifc conies out  quite clearly- that the real, decrease is  very much less, especially, now-that oui  captured soldiers are again available for  duty. It is,' however, under the heading, "sent home as invalids " that tli-\  official calculation of losses is"most likely  to mislead the uncritical reader. The  total, as given, amounts to 28,497 of all  ranki-s, but fewer than 2.000 are recorded  -as permanently disabled, and even of  these nearly 1.000 are still in hospital,  and may recover to complete their terms  of mjlitary .service. Adding the released captives to. the rehabilitated invalids, it is reasonably safe'to .estimate  that the numerical strength of the British army as a whole is not permanently  diminished��������� hy more than 10,000 casualties. Lord Roberts', command in particular, of course, is reduced- to a much  larger extent, as only a comparatively  small proportion of those invalided home  have, we believe, rejoined their regiments in  South Africa.  But their presence in England enables  the military authorities to despatch continuous reinforcements which would  otherwise have to be retained on the  home cista^shment for insular service.  An adup. .-al correspondent of the  Times says: A comparison of the rates  of mortality in South Africa with.those  incurred by officers and men during the  Franco-German war of 1870-71 produces  some interesting results. Official ligures  are available showing the fortunes oT a  mean strength of 25,000 officers and  802,S00 men who took part in the great  campaign. Battle and wounds accounted for 1.050 officers and 20.G27 men,  while .144 officers and 10,942 .men met  their deaths from disease. There were  some other casualties from accident and  causes unknown. The rates of mortality  worked out at: Officers, 05.5 per 1.000  killed or died of wouuds, and S.9 per  1,000 died from disease and other causes:  total, 74.4 per 1,000. Non-commi<?sioued  officers and men killed or died of wounds,  '���������'O.O per 1,000. died from disease, etc.,  14.2 per 1,000���������total. 45.1 per 1.000.  Here we see a large discrepancy between  the number of officers and of men killed  in battle; but while in the France-German war an officer had a double chance  of being killed as compared with his  men, in South Africa the British officer  bad   to face three and a half chances.  :if4 r.  . :��������������� -���������   ti  "O  Rr  wr  \J' W iXi^S  EaPCR'i 'Z\V?  ii.no  iWIPORTC*=S.  ii';!

Mandyer.  ,     BOXING AS A DEFENCE.  A Southern Man Who Does Not Place  Much Beliance iu It.  from New Orleans Times-Democrat.  "I see that Fitzsimnions is expatiating  on  the  advantages  of  knowing  how  to  box  in  case of  a    sudden    attack    by  roughs," remarked a veteran sportsman  of this city.    ''I- have heard that sort of  talk before, and���������well, it makes me smile.  As, far   back   as   1   can   remember,   the  advocates   aud    apologists   of   pugilism  have been harping'on the importance of  .viiowing how to box as a means of ready  protection against unexpected attacks.  "They  call  it   'the  manly  art  of  self-de-  dence.' 'If you know how to use your  hands,' they say, 'there is no necessity  cor the cowardly and dangerous practice  of carrying a weapon.'    Some years ago,  rt-hen I wuis a trille younger than I am'  at present, that struck mo as being sound  togic, and I went to the trouble of taking  1 course of lessons fn.m a local pugiiist.  By the time I got through I could spar  /cry prettily, i knew ail about feints  and leads and uppeicuts, and "undercuts,  and counters, and cros������-*-cou.itej.s^. .and  ilaliered myself that I cn'u'd make .short  vvoi;k of the average hoodlum.  ''One night about a month later, I was  strolling down town when a tough looking young man on the street corner made  an ironical remark about dudes. 'Here's  .1 chance for a practical demonstration,,'  I said to myself; 'I'll just .give that loaf-  _>r a small lesson in politeness.' Suiting  ,-he action to the word, I stepped up  jauutly and struck what my preceptor j  called attitude No. 1. That was all I  struck. Before I could make the artistic feint with which I had been taught  :hat every bout must necessarily open,  ;he young ruffian had kicked me. twice  pn the shins, butted me in the stnioach,  yanked out half a pound of my front  hair, punched me violently on the nose,  sud left me hors de combat on the han-  ruette. The;:first thing I did when I got  .Miine was to throw my 'Manual of Box-"  . ,ug' out of the window.  "Boxing   would   be ah  ideal     defense  igainst .hoodlums,"   continued   the   old-  iiner,   "if  the  hoodlums  could   only be  jersuaded to follow the rules of the game  ;  ind abstain from biting off ears or goug-  |  ng out eyes Svhile the bout is hi pro- i  gress. But as long as toughs ignore  ring ethics, and .highwaymen refuse tp  tackle us according to Q.uee'nsberry rules,  one good hickory club is worth more in  a tight place than all the sparring lessons ever given. The best proof of what  I say is a significant fact that ��������� professional'.sluggers never rely on their '  fists when they get to fighting casually  among themselves. A pugilist will talk  you dizzy about the 'manly art of self-  defense,' but let him got into a fracas  in some groggery, and it's a hundred  to one he docs his sparring with a six-  shooter or -a beer; mallet.  "Understand, please, that I am distinctly opposed to the pis ictice of carrying weapons, but- at the same time it is  all nonsense to talk of fistic expertness  as a defense against ruffianly assault.  The best defense a respectable citizen  can have against that sort'of thing is  good company, decent hours and a fixed  determination to mind his own business.  Let !r")'i observe that rule, and he'll have  no need of pistols or pugilism.

The wharf space and . warehouses at  Skagway are taxed to their limit, freight  trains are whistling night and day all  along the line between here and There,'  and the water from here down is simply  spotted with crafts of all shapes and  sizes.  It is at While Horse only that    the  im-mensity    of    fhis  movement can   be  comprehended.    The big warehouse, one  thousand" feet long, filled up, and shipments   that   could   stand   the    weather  were  piled ' up   outside.       It   became   a  necessity-and another hundred feet was  added  to the gigantic storehouse.    The  boats were coming and going as rapidly  as    possible    in    consistency    with    the  caution demanded at this season of the  year.     They   struggled   like   tropans   to  keep even with the trains, but they were  .gradually getting the worst of it.   Then  there started to spring up on the water  front a fleet of scows.   They grew'in the  clay time, they grew in the ,night time,  :  and spread out till the bank of the river  was lined a mile long with them.   They  are     coming   up  to   the  docks  in  their  turn and getting away in' dozens , with  their loads, but tho fleet does not seem  to grow smaller.      All the lumber of all  the mills, is in demand by the great aruiy  of    scow builders,   the noise  of whose  hammers never cease.  There  are  three  weeks more for the,  river steamers to run.    The scows will  be at it till the ice stops them.  The various lumber companies have  contracted with the transportation companies for the entire output of their  mills running at a full capacity from  now until the close of navigation. This  has created a scarcity of scows on 1i;e  open market and prices are moving up  rapidly. The Mill Haven Lumber-Company is in the unique position of beinir  the only company which has refns'ij t<>  contract their scc.ws, consequently are  in a1 position to sell to independent  shippers and move thousands o: ro'j.s ������������i"  freight. Mr. Arthur Copland, the  White Horse manager, has secured control of all scows coming from Atlin,  which will further relieve the pressure.

The Nest was. certainly, a very -pic-,  turesque hit of antiquity, and Maud'  had .been busy .these last few days  tiansfeiving its outward aspect to  paper. By a curious 'coincidence,: Cyril  Ormsby had also been seized with a  sort of antiquarian , fever; and what  should he do, so strong is the powor  of sympathy, but wander , over to  ox aniline: the Nest of the defunct Mr.  GourJay'nf- the identical' time that  Maud Willoughby had selected for her  sketching. ,,. ���������'���������������������������'  Being tihere. it would have scarcely  been politi, eif'her upon his part or  upon' hers, too by a .hasty retreat, for  either to liavs appeared frightened by  the other's presence; so, : at Cyril's  earnest ���������.���������entreaty, the'.', lady went on  with' her drawing, the gentleman occupying ���������himself, by .taking measure-'  -meats and jotting down notes in his  memorandum-book, with the object  doubtless, of appending them to some  ���������' rnemor.ii' of- Gourlay, which he or somebody .else might think hereafter, of  compiling.  <; -"Are you fond of ruins, Mr- Ormsby ,?" asked Maud.  lie at once replied.

"How handsome he is!" she thought.  "I'm sure Aunt Cordy will like him.  Oh, I shall dance with joy when their  first interview is over, and she tells  me, as she is sure to tell me, how-  much she approves of him.  Ami so, in golden haze of hope, love  sat and dreamed; seeing nothing, hearing nothing, but scenes and sounds  coated by itself.  - It was a clianning picture, this  young g'irl, so full of freshness and  life, sketching the gray old ruin, which  had seen the centuries come and go,  and generations as full of life and  hope as herself become as the dust at  its base.   ���������   '  Such was the half-audibly uttered  wish of a third person, who, unpevceiv-  ed by either of t'he lovers, was an evidently interested spectator of the  scene.

A few oranges were grown in  Florida,, and perhaps live carloads a  year came from California. Of these  oranges (Done was seedless, so the delicious navel oranges that we may see  for sale any day How were unknown.  In 1872, however, United States Consul W. F.

The  shoots were packed in moss and clay  and sent to Washington. They were  set out by the agricultural department,  but attracted little attention until the  next year, when Horatio Tihbetts of  Riverside, Cal..,took the surviving four  shoots to his home and planted them.'  There they had hard luck, for one died  and another was eaten up by a cow.  At the end of five years the two trees  surviving bore 10 handsome seec^Jess  oranges. Next year the oranges wore  even better', and the trees' bore about  a box of the fruit.  From that time on the cultivation of  seedless, or navel, oranges about Riverside   progressed   rapidly.     As  there  were no seeds to raise trees from,  it  was found necessary to graft buds of  the seedless trees into seedling trees.  As soon as the seedless branches began to bear the Seedling branches were  cut from the trees.   As la to as 1SS3 the ���������  best se;edless buds sold for as much as  i?l each, but within a couple of years  there were thousands of buds on the  grafted branches.

The work is in  the hands of the Mississippi river commission, the board of army and civilian  engineers charged with the duty of improving this vast water course. As  years of experiment and more or less  defined effort at improvement have not  resulted in permanent good all along,  the commission has wisely decided to  survey the entire system and triangulate every foot of its course.  There, stretched upon the ground,  amidst a heap of newly-fallen debris,  lay Cyril Ormsby. By his side knelt  Maud Willoughby, calling him, and  calling ihim vainly, by his name.

In a company of 100  men you will find more love, romance  and  sorrow  than you  would  hear of  among 1,000 men at home.    It was a  "comrade's pleasure and duty to share  these things -with a comrade.   At home  a man, would  not have talked of his  -    love,   his  hopes and  fears even   to a  brother.    Down  there  in  the enemy's  country, in hut or tent or lying under  the same blanket after the day's fight  or march, man turned to man and whispered his secrets.    It was because we  marched together, fought together, ate  together oand the shadow of death covered us all alike.  You like a man who has shared your  hardships; you love him wrhen he has  shared your dangers. So it was that  one might sit down with the company  roster before him and tell of those who  had left wives behind them, and those  who had left sweethearts, and 'those  ' who had found correspondents and  were mingling romance with war.  It was known, as if it were a family  matter, that the orderly sergeant's'wife  had died since be left home, leaving  four children motherless; that Private  Hayes had quarreled with his sweetheart; that Corporal Johnson's farm  was going to rack and ruin since he enlisted. We heard these things and a  thousand others, and we stood always  ready to congratulate or sympathize  with each other. I have known the big  sergeant to come rushing into a winter  hut occupied by six, men and wake  them all up that he might read a letter  from home telling that the baby actually had taken three whole steps all by  himself. We were men as to war, women as to gossip, children as to trifles.  It was so with all of Company G exT  cept in one single instance. Trooper  Haskins was a stranger among us  when he enlisted. He continued to be  a stranger to his last hour. When we  sized him up, as men size up each other, we knew that he had some secret in  his life which he did not care to lay  , bare to the world. One could see by  the stoop of his shoulders, by the look  in his eyes and by the wrinkles on his  face that he had been bard hit. and  ���������would suffer to the end.  As men we respected his secret and  praised his courage in bearing up under his sorrows, but as soldiers we felt  that his lack of confidence in us was  an imputation.   We stood ready to condole and sympathize, but he kept us at  arm's length.   We felt sorry for him at  first   that  he  received   no   letters���������that  there was not one single person in all  the world to write' a word of cheer���������but  his careless indifference soon provoked  our indignation.     We gave e-ach other  the gossip of country and village as we  marched;  we read each'other's letters  as   we  smoked   at   the  campfire;   we  whispered our confidences in the darkness���������all except Private Haskins.    He  had no friend.    He had a comrade, but  only  in the sense that be shared  the  same  fiy  tent aud   the same  rations.  When the comrade had  failed to discover whether Haskins was married or  single, divorced or a bachelor, a man  who   had   been   deeply   wronged  or  a  cynic���������when he could get nothing whatever from him as to his past���������he turned  away from him and said to us:  "Boys, I can't make him out, and I'm  not going to try any further. If he  don't want to be one of us, let him  slide."  We got down on Private Haskins to  the extent that he was socially outlawed. That meant more than I can  explain to you. We gave him credit  for bis soldierly qualities���������and it was  useless to deny that he was a brave  man���������but he was forced to live alone,  as it were, in the midst of thousands.  He noted every move made against  him, and many of them must have hurt  his feelings and added to his burdens,  but no one ever heard him complain. I  believe he secretly was glad of his iso  lation. It gave him time to think and  meditate, and he would do this by, the  hour. We didn't misjudge the, man. 1  arn glad to recall, but we simply ostracized him in a social way. just as society crowds out the man who tramples  on the conventionalities. On his part  he must haA-e felt that no words of  sympathy from us could have made his  case better, or he would have "chummed up" and been one of us.  By and by, after two or three battles, strange whispers were circulated  about regarding Private Haskins. He  courted death.   He had gone down into  the fray with shut teeth ahd'flashiujr  eyes and taken such chances that he  was called a devil on one hand and a  fool on the other.  ���������Men who watched him closely denied  that he was looking for promotion or a  record. He was seeking to end.it all  on the battlefield. There was nothing  more in life for him, and it would be  better to die with, saber in hand than  to snuff put his own life like a coward.  Our respect for the man increased, but'  yet he was still outlawed and we still  carried a feeling of resentment against  him.  One day, in the depths of the forest,  while winter still held its grip on the  ,land, I came across him lying at full  length on the ground.    He was moaning and wTeepiug.    For ten minutes he  sobbed as a man does only, when some  great sorrow has wasted his strength,  turned back his years and taken him  back to childhood.    Awed and frightened  and  wondering.  I  crept silently  away and left him with his grief.   Two  hours later I met him to find that he'  had conquered himself.    It seemed as  if there was a new, line of care in his  face and that, there was a new touch of  silver in his hair, but he was not to betray his secret.    He did not know that  his struggle had been witnessed, and I  was dumb as to what I had seen.  ,   A week later Troop G was sent out  on a scout and rode into a tight place.  It was reported that all of us did our  duty in the half hour's hot fighting, but  there was only one hero.    Even with  the   pistols   flashing   and   the   sabers  whirling I watched Private Haskins as  he waved his saber on high and thundered into the thick of the melee.    He  fought to kill and be killed, but death.'  passed him by.  ��������� We whispered to each other that he  was a hero, deserving of a medal of  gold, and' we esteemed and exalted  him, but.the circle did not open to let  him Jn. He was not of us���������he had not  been for a year���������and no act of his in  battle could make himcso. He knew it  as well as we did. and he made no advance. He had our respect and admiration -in. the fullest, but he did'not  have and did not' wish for our.cbm-  radeship and sympathy. We'knew that  there are things which must lie buried  In the human bosom forever and ever,  no matter what the cost, but'yet we resented it when our sympathy was re-.,  fused. v  It. was two weeks after our fight  when I was detailed on vedette duty  with Private Haskins. We were to  take the post together. In the winter  camp behind us there was the hum of  preparation for tbe spring campaign.  In the quarters of the enemy, a dozen  miles away, there was the same excitement. We rode to a post on the highway and dismounted under a tree. I  remember that the sun shone warm,  the buds were starting, and here and  there a robin was raising his glad song.  Little was said between us, and by  and by Private Haskins fell into one  of his moods.  Prom the corner of my eye I watched  bis pipe puff at longer intervals until it  finally died out. He looked straight  ahead of him across the field or the  wall as his ears drank in the notes of  the birds. He forgot that I was near.  His thoughts went back to the old  grief, and I saw the changes in his soul  written on his face. There were joy  and gladness; there were grief and  pain; there were wavering and determination. At the end of a quarter of  an hour he suddenly sobbed in his  throat. Then be rose up aud started  across the field toward the wall.  "What is it, Haskins? What do you  see? Hold on!" 1 called to him, but he  never halted or turned his head.  "Come back!" 1 called. "A sharpshooter may be hiding behind the wall!  Come back!"  I heard him gasping and sobbing as  he pushed forward. I would have run  after him and caught him, as one might  a somnambulist wrho was approaching  the edge of a precipice, but just then  our horses reared and snorted and required my strongest efforts to prevent  them from breaking away. When I  could look around, the man was nearly  at the wall. 1 was about to shout at  him again, when he stopped, threw up  his arms and sank down, and he was  lying on his back on the frostbitten  grass before I heard the report of the  rifle which had slain him. Then a  squad of cavalry dashed out and tried  to capture me, and I went thundering  up the road toward the reserve picket  with bullets singing louder than the  robins.  Half an hour later I was back with a  squadron. We charged past the dead  man on the grass and up to the stone  wall, but no one was in sight. All that  we saw was the peaceful farmhouse  beyond; all that we heard were the  voices of the birds.  The enemy had been to view the man  they had slain.

WANTED HIS FARE RUNG UP.  An Italian Who Demanded  Mniic of  tlie Street Car Conductor.  The conductor of a Brooklyn trolley  car had a peculiar experience with an  Italian one night last week. The  Italian wanted to ride with music  thrown in for his 5 cents. A passenger  described the incident:  "I boarded the ear with six other passengers, , including an   Italian,  at  the'  suburban end of the road on one of the  late trips.    The car had gone a short  distance when the conductor began to  collect ,the fares.    The Italian was on  the rear seat, and his money was col-,  lected last.    Everything went well,for  about  half a  mile;   when  the  Italian'  jumped   to   his   feet ,and   waved   his  hands at the conductor.  The conductor  went to the excited man and asked him  what   the   trouble   was.     The' Italian  said:  " 'Me wnnta my fiva centa back.'  "The   conductor   told   him   that   be  could not have the money.   The Italian  insisted:  " 'Every boda getta. music for a fiva  centa; me no got." "'" ""''''  "The conductor grasped the situation  at once, and, .seeing that he was accused, of 'nickeling,' .started to clear  himself. He showed the Italian that  there were seven passengers on the  car and that that number of fares were  registered. He also explained why the  Italian did not get any music for his  -nickel.    He said:' .    .   ���������  . "'While collecting the fares , in , the  front part of the car I rang up one  fare too much, and if I rang up yours I  would be out 5 cents.'  "While this explanation was going on*  the man from Italy was still shouting  for his 'fiva centa,' and did not stop  until he got'off "the car farther down,  still jabbering at the conductor.'

A Quarter "Which a Besrgrar Warn Sot  to  Spend  For Drink.  "For God's sake give a hungry man a  little money to buy something to eat."  entreated a beggar of a woman in  West Third street. The beggar was  by no means absentminded,' but the individual to whom he spoke was. She  passed on several yards without noticing him. when it suddenly .occurred  to her that to a man. perhaps starving,  who had asked bread she had given a  stone, or at least a stony stare. So  she took 25 cents from her purse and.  turning quickly, hurried after a man  passing down the street.  "Here," she said, touching him on  the arm; "here is a quarter for you,  and I hope you will not buy liquor with  it."  Before the astonished person to  whom she had given the money could  utteu- a word she had departed.  "I am sure I don't know why young  women should run after me on the  street to give me money," ejaculated  the man, "but 1 will spend it for ''--ink  since she particularly requesu j me  not to."  A few steps farther on he was met  by a seedy looking fellow who began.  "For God's sake, give." etc.  "Yes, my man. I think this was intended for you. A young woman sent  it to you, but you are not to spend it  for drink." And he passed on with a  light heart, while the beggar tested  the- quarter suspiciously'*, casting an  eager glance ahead at the nearest saloon.  An Adventure With the Cannibals of  the Solomon Inlands.  One day, on a Solomon beach, a little  girl ran.to me and, before I was aware  of it, placed my foot on her neck. One  knows what this means well enough.  In hot war it means that if a chief allows his, foot to rest on the defeated  one's neck the man's life is safe, but he  is a slave forever, rescue or no rescue.  I was puzzted at the child's action. It  was soon explained. Shortly afterward  down came a lot of villagers and insisted on taking the youngster. I told  them what she had done. ' They said  they did not .care.. Her mother was  being cooked in. the town, and the  child should go to the ovens with her.  "Never!" I said. "What! We who have  * eaten betel nut together many times, to  quarrel for a mere child, to whom  I  have granted life in your own wray!"   I  swore they should kill me first.   They  replied:,  "Oh, that is an. easy thing to do."  A bold front was the only thing now.  Luckily, I had my 1G shooter.   Springing back and putting a mark on the  sand  with  my foot,  I swore I would  shoot the first man who crossed it.   As  I said before, the natives do not care to  face an armed white in the open.  They  knew  I could answer for a dozen of  them or so, and. although clubs were  up and bows bent, they hesitated, as  well   they  might,  and  I   knew  I   had  mastered them.    Then one proposed I  should buy the child fairly; they cared  not to fight a friercd.   To this I at once  agreed, and a muss was thus avoided,  and   a   mission   ax,   worth   tenpence.  made me a slave owner.

There Is a young man in Brooklyn  who needs a tonic of some kind, else  he would not have failed to embrace as  attractive an opportunity as . ever  comes to one. He accompanied a.  charming young woman to a church  wedding on the park slope and arrived  at about the time the bride and groom  were due. The young woman with  him was dressed somewhat as the  bride was expected to be clad, and as  she walked up the main aisle of the  church with her escort the organist  began to play the wedding march. The  couple, however, instead of going on to  the altar, stopped in one of the pews  not far from  the front.    One of the  By Mistake She Cotnmnnlcated "With  the  Wrong  Inatitution.'

Shp asked the  young man in charge of the hotel exchange to call up Sing Sing for her  and get telephone No. 71. He did so.  and she sat down to talk.  "Hello!"   she  said.     "Is   that   Sing  Sing?"  "It is."  "Well,   I  want 71.    I'm   Mrs.  Highland, and I want to speak to my son."  "What number did you say, madam?"  "No. 71."  "Your son. you said?"  "Yes, my son���������Harry Highland."  "Hold the telephone a moment."

What sort of an institution is that, I'd like to know?"  "You must come here in person on a  visiting day with the proper pass before you can see him."  "Indeed!

Not  many years ago, it was  quite  easy  to get a deer within a few minutes'  walk of the  town,  but   of  late   a  great many dogs���������part bred hounds  ���������have been raipei by certain    unscrupulous       hunters (?)      These  animals aie taken into  the  wods,  ostensibly for the purpose, of hunting grouse, but really, it   is said, to  hound deer.    Indeed, it is reported  that there are several dogs  ranging  in the vicinity of Black  Lake  and  Allan's Lake, who have  become so  habituated   to running  that   they  only appear   at   home   when   the  weather becomes had.    As running-  deer with dogs is against   the   law,  it would   be well for the   polii e  to  investigate,'and   cause  those   half  wild hounds to be   destroyed   and  have the owners of all who use dugs  for hounding severely punished.
