The books had been  audited up to-date by the Auditor, on  Wednesday., The officrils then left the  building. When the Collector went to  his office this morning, on teaching the  the stairs, he noticed that the written ta<  list had been torn down.- On entering  his office he found the janitor had lighted  the office .fire;'but it was nearly burnt out.  He then saw, that the books had been  torn to pieces. The Fire Hall rate book,  Street Filling book, Collection Roll book,  and a dozen others were deltbrately torn  to pieces. It appears the entrance to the  office was obtained through th** windows;  no marks of. violence could be discovered  on the window. The police , have the  matter in hand and are making every  effort to lead.to the discovery of the person or persons who committed the crime.  Shaft Accident.

However, the program wbs given as advertised, with a lew exceptions; these being  unavoidable, ' as some whose names  appeared on the program were suffering  with bad colds.  The Orchestra, was unusually good:  Dr. Westwood and Mr. Baird, violinists;  Mr. Harry Roy, cornetist; Rev Mr.  Hicks, flute; and Mrs. Ed McKim, pianist.  The costumes of "Ye olde folkes," presented some fantastic concepiions of -ye  olde styles."  The tableaux provoked much merriment among the spectators. We regret  that lack of space precludes a more  extended and personal notice, the entire  program appeared in two preceeding  issu_s of The News.  ���������Anderson's air-tights knock them  cold.

They  left Union Bay for home, so their father  Mr. Wm. Anderton oi Comox informs us  on Tuesday about 9 o'clock in the forenoon, intending to return the same day.  When their boat was found it was filled  with water, and three of the four oars  were gone. Parties have be*:n engaged  in searching along the shore almost every  day since thc accident, but so far without  avail.  SOCIAL ENTERTAINMENT.

Tbe stocks of,wheat-in -Fort "William  and Port Arthur-are. 857,118 bushels.  The world's visible supply of wheat  increased 750,000 bushels lastweek.  The earnings of Canadian Pacific for  the week ended Aueust 14th were-. 449,-  000, an increase of. .52,000.  '.; "-..'"������������������  The price of seats on the New York  Stock Exhcange are increasing in value  owing to;the unusually active trading of  late.. They are .now worth .20,000 as  against .13,500 to, .14,000 in duli times.  Theliigh prioe was .34,000 in the 80's.  The hopeful feeling in-business .circles  at Toronto still; continues, although,- it  is somewhat modified, by crop reports.  kRains aro interfering with the successful  .harvesting of spring grains. The yield  'of wheat, however, will "be unusually  large, and prices are the-highest for sev-.  eral years. This, "of course will be of  great advantage to Ontario farmers, who  will be enabled to meet their, obligations  and allow them a larger expenditure of  money. The business community must  necessarily reap the benefits resulting  from such a favorable state of things.'  B. G. Dun & Co.'s weekly review of  trade in the United States says: Not for  '. several years have the telegraphic reports  J from'various cities in all. parts of the  i country been as encouraging or shown as  I uniform improvement as this'week. The  (markets' are- called crazy by some, but  {fairly represent the people, whose confid-  Jence in the future is strong and increas-  fing.    Nothing appears to check   it.    Ru-  Imors of injury to crops are not sufficiently reported to have much influence.  The one temporary hindrance is .the  strike of bituminous coal miners, which  interferes as yet little w-ith industries,  and seems likely to terminate within a  week. ������������������;.- V-  There never was,- and never will be, a  universal panacea, in one remedy, for all  ills to which flesh is heir���������the very nature  of many curatives being such that were  the germs of other and differently seated  diseases rooted in the system of the  patient���������what would- relieve one ill in  turn would aggravate the- other. We  have, however, in Quinine Wine, when  obtainable in , a' sound unadulterated  state, a remedy for many and grevious ills.  By its gradual and judicious use, the  frailest systems are, led into convalescence  and strength, by the influence which Quinine exerts on Nature's own restoratives.  It relieves, the drooping: spirits of 'those  with whom a chronic state of morbid des-  pondencyand lack of interest in life is a  disease, and, by tranquilizing the nerves,  disposes to sound and refreshing sleep-  imparts vigor-to the action of the blood,  which, being stimulated, courses throughout the veins,' strengthening the healthy  animal functions of the system, thereby  making activity a necessary result,  strengthening the frame, and giving life  , to the digestive organs, which, naturally  'demand increased substance���������result, improved appetite. Northrop & Lyman of  Toronto, have* given to the public their  superior Quinine Wine at the usual rate,  and, gauged by the opinion of scientists,  this wine approaches nearest perfection of  any in the market.

Th������ Caleche Driver��������� Where Montgomery  I"������ll ���������Shafts, to Com���������.emorate Noble  Deeds���������\ City, of Stairs���������The Duflferin  Terrace���������A Fine Promenade.  One cannot look upon Quebec at present and remember what the city has  been without crying  ye-irs &go -the��������� city was  great. To-day commerce passes by her  doors, and the city sees those noble vessels which formerly dropped anchor in  her harbor sail'past and up the river to  the farther inland port of Montreal.  Her once enormous shipping trade is now  done by a few Norwegian sailing vessels,  but the advent of steam has driven out  sail almost entirely. Quebec does not live  up to the times, and the times - have loft  '.her/a city of half a century ago.  - Great warehouses once teeming with  busy life, are deserted, and in many cases  fallen to pieces. , Decayed and grass  grown walls on both sides of the river  tell a tale of rise, decline and fall. Where  26 miles of wharfs did not suffice for the  shipping, it is now confined within the  radius of half a mile. <���������'      '���������������������������������������������,���������  Splendid residences, once the scene of  wealth and gayety, are now untenanted  unless < by rats. Many of the former great  business firms have dissolved or passed  away. Empty and useless buildings are  'other evidences that Quebec was onoe a  flourishing city. Great merchants of bygone years are eking out an existence in  some small government office ,or living  on the wrecks of their former fortunes.  The trade of-Quebec is, to-day petty.  Tourists visit the city, climb the steep  steps, examine the citadel and the old  fashioned cannon, see the wall   that sur-  wili be cut in the rock at Cape Diamond,  and the column will be erected there.  ; HILLS AND  STREETS.

In fact, the tourist is one of the principal sources of revenue to the city, and  the guide and caleche, or cab driver,  make the most of him. Most of these  jetius are Frenchmen, but they always  know English enough to collect their  fares,' and some of, them are sufficiently  familiar with modern business methods^  to get twice'or thrice what is really due  them. My caleche driver was a son of  Erin, and thus brimful of information  as well as wit.  "Shall I take yez where brave Gineral  Montgomery fell?" said he to me as soon  as he had me Into his two wheeled vehicle. "It's only yonder by. the heights.  Sure, 'twas an awful fall he had." -  I said mildly that I had heard General  Montgomery was trying to, climb the  heights and that he was killed not by a  fall, but by the enemy's bullets.  "There are others as will tell ye different," said the merry driver, "but it'6  thrue as I tell it t'ye."  A little later we came to the building  erected on the site of the little house in  which Montgomery's remains were laid,  and I directed the attention of my guide  to the inscription which stated that Montgomery was killed while "scaling" the  heights. "������������������.-.'  "And isn's scalin' runnin away?" he  replied warmly. "If I shtole from ye and  ran away, wouldn't I be scalin?"  Quebec's well known antiquarian, Mr.  Lemoine, who .was knighted by Queen  Victoria a year ago, was riding with an  American friend one day, and they had.  an experience very much, like mine.  "This Montgomery was a   fine   young  man. I knew him well,'.' .said the driver.  "You did?" said Mr. Lembine's friend.  "I did,'' said the driver.    "He   was a  .young British   officer   seat   out   here in  the service; and   he   fell   in love with a  fine young lady.  But you know how they  are in England   abouc   marrying   in the  colonies.    His people wouldn't' have   it,  and so one day he jumped   over and was  killed."  Thus history is made in Quebec, but  there is no reason...why any one who  visits the city should remain in ignorance of the historic memories which  hang ���������bout it. 'Every - spot of interest is  marked plainly with a monument or a  tablet bearing a full inscription in English, and few of the English speaking  people are as ignorant as some of the  caleche drivers. ,��������� Even the little boys on  the street corners can rattle off history  to you with accuracy. It has been rubbed  into them, since babyhood by contact  with historic things.  Quebec has her shafts of stone and  marble and granite to commemorate  heroic deeds. Wolfe's death place is  marked by a monument, and another  rises in the governor's garden overlooking the St. JLawrence in memory of  Montcalm. A movement, originating  with some wealthy Chicago guests of the  Chateau Frontenac, for the erection of a  column to the Revolutionary hero Montgomery has received the sanction of the  city fathers, though they have reserved  the right to approve   the   memorial   and  The   streets of Quebec  are   even, more  involved than   those   of   Boston.    They  constitute one of the features of .the citjr  which progress will never  touch.    Nothing but an eruption of   nature , can'   deprive Quebec of   her   Ave   hills,   and so  long as   the-1 hills   remain ��������� the curvins;,  uncertain   streets   will   be   unchanged.

St. John street.-is   typical.    Beginning  at   the St. John gate,   an   extension   of  the St. John-road; it runs in   ay reasonably straight line for.four or five- squares  and then gradually curves to   the   right.  At the curve it empties into three streets,  each going to the right, but   with different degrees' of   abruptness.  - Any   one, of,  thepe three   might   be   John   street, but  hone of, them is.  John street, (the inhabitants seldom use the prefix) ends   at the  ourve, and its broadest extension is called  Fabriqiie street.  These two are the principal shopping streets..of the   city.   ;Fab  rique "street runs iFea'dily up grade to the  Basilica, the great Catholic church which  faces th.e half finished   walls   of the new  city hall.    Running on the   other side of  the city hall,   parallel With   Fabrique, is  Buade  street.    This   thoroughfare   ends  , abruptly tw������ squares beyond at the landing   of   one   of   the long flights  of iron  sfSps whibh are short outs up   and down  hill   for   pedestrians.     Originally   there  were wooden steps of uncertain strength  at different points   along   the   hillsides,  and the irregularity: of one flight   earned  for it the name   of   "breakneck   steps."  It ran from the   curve in the   letter S of,  the Rue Montagne, down   to> La   Petite  Champlain, or Little  Champlain   street.  These Bteps   are still a curiosity   to visitors, though now they are by   no   means  the worst   steps   in   the   city.    I saw a  flight coming down   the   full   length of  the hillside in another   part   of the town  which must have;-; contained 100  shallow  steps.    Up and down went .a   olattering  crowd of people.  There was only one w?.y  to surmount the hill at this point, or, in  fact, at any point but one.   and that was  by; climbing.

I  \  GUERNSEYS.  Tbe Iiittle Jersey Cannot Have ifc All Her  !Owrr Way. ,  , The Guernseys are not falling off any  tin favor. On the contrary, they are  'steadfastly gaining. Some who used to-  ! go in powerfully for Jerseys have cooled  | off iu their affection and changed  their  FAMOUS GUERNSEY BUM..  affected  with  the  'dairy breed, . being  tuberculosis scare. This scare has led to  |the importation of Sirnmenthaler and  Norman cattle into the country, which  is well enough, variety being a ebod  thing. But we are ..'.particularly;, well,  f pleased to record that the tuberculosis  fad is dying out. Nine-tenths of it,was  'only scare to begin. The other tenth,  which may have been real, was brought  about by stuffing, inbreeding .and confining the poor little Jersey to force her  to make a record for fairs and shows.  That is the truth and nothing else.  Breeders are returning to good souse  with the little Jersey. The Guernsey  oow has kept on her steady Way, with  her larger body, more robust build, rich,  yellow, natural colored butter and comparative freedom froin tuberculosis.  Those who invest in Guernsey dairy  [battle seldor--' change them for any other  i breed.   Guernseys are good enough for  I them.  The first illustration shows one of the  best known old Guernsey bulls in this  country. It is a picture of Lord Stanford, the champion Guernsey at the  World's fair. The dairy type is here no  less powerfully marked than in case of  the Jersey bull, but the Guernsey is  rounder and larger. It may be observed,  however, that the Guernsey "bull is hot  a whit better tempered than the Jersey.

This  .warm, soft, mellow skin is believed  to  ��������� have some connection with  the highly  ] colored butter produced from Guernsey  milk.

"  1 ;'"When-1 was a boy, my father had no  well or cistern in "barn or-barnyard.  The cows usually drank in winter from  ���������a trough at the house well, but many a  time I have carried water to the barn  Mn buckets because I thought it unfit for  the 'cows to be out in storm or snow or  on ice. I early learned that if I took a  teakettle of boiling water to the barn  and added a little of its contents to the  cold water the cows drank more freely.  and gave more milk in consequence. I  learned, too, that when there was a  cow fresh in milk during the winter  there was a profit in adding a few  shorts or a little meal to the warm water, making a sort of gruel for her-  ��������� I learned the value of a shed on the  south side of the barnyard to, turn the  cows into a little while during the day,  and I learned that if they began to  shiver by the time the stable was  cleaned out they would be better off in  the barn than even in the shed.  I learned to card and brush the cows  every day as regularly and carefully as  I did the horses.���������Ames in American  Cultivator.  CHEESE.  ��������� '..'... . - ~��������� ' -   ��������� ���������-  How to  Hake  It���������Preliminary Steps Before Adding the Rennet.  In cbeesefnaking, as in every line of  business, continual, progress is theroad  to success. I know, of no better illustration to bring before ��������� a cheesemaker  than bicycle, riding. If one does not  keep on going, he will certainly and  quickly fall off. And in order to mainr  tain our reputation as cbeesemakers we  must constantly strive .to acquire a  knowledge '"of the best methods of  cheeseruaking in order to improve the  quality of our cheese.  From my own experience in cheese-  making I have found continual and  jatient research necessary in order to  keep' pace with the times and requirements of A\& consumers.  The first-important matter, which  we must consider, is the cleanliness of  our cheese factories. Everything in and  about the factory, from make room to  curing room, must be kept perfectly  clean and free from any offensive smells.  This is a very important matter. "Without attention to .cleanliness in every detail we cannot expect to,.bo successful  in operations. Keceiying the milk  is the nest, step in cheesemaking,  when the .skill of 'the' cheesemaker  ia taxed more than at any other time  during the progress of the day's work.  Great care must be exercised in receiving the rhilk, accepting none but that  which is pure and sweet, and free from  foul odors. He should use firmness in  rejecting all other milk, for,if impure  milk is received an impure flavored  cheese will be the result.  Wheu the milk is being received,  steam may be applied lightly to the vat  after ..the first few hundred pounds are  in. The heating should be done slow.1.  until the temperature has reached SC  degrees F. The milk should be stirred  'occasionally until heated. When the  desired temperature is .reached, the  steam should be turned off and the  pipes conveying the steam to vats disconnected, so that the temperature will  not go above.86 < degrees. At this point  the milk should be tested for acidity in  order to know its condition before adding the rennet.  The most practical test known is the  cup test. The instruments used in this  test are an ordinary .teacup, holding  something" over eight ounces, a dram  glass and a spoon. The teat is operated  as follows:  Take eight ounces of milk out of the  vat, measure a dram of rennet, pour it  into the spoon, hold the spoon in the  right hand, immediately over the cup,  holding your watch in your left hand.  When the second band of the watch  touches any figure on,the dial, drop the  rennet-into the .milk and stir rapidly  for ten _secbn ds, ��������� so as! to create a w hii'l -  ing motion of the milk, keeping one eye  on the milk and the other on the watch,  counting the seconds which it takes to  coagulate. If it takes 50 or 60 seconds  to coagulate, the milk is not ready to  set and should be matured by letting it  stand until such time as the milk will  coagulate in about 20 seconds by the  test. The maturing or ripening of the  milk is a very important matter in  cheesemaking, and the cup test is a  guide that will direct us all through  cheesemaking. The seconds on the  watch are known as degrees in'the test  ��������� that is, degrees of acidity���������20 seconds  being 20 degrees of acidity. The .milk  should be ripened to that degree every  day, so as to insure uniformity of quality in the cheese from day to day. The  test will be found valuable, even where  overripe milk has been received, as it  will tell us the exact condition of the  milk. I would not think of making  cheese without this test. A little practice is required'to be able to operate it  quickly and successfully.  The milk being matured to the proper  degree of acidity, the rennet should be  added.-    _    "��������� .    .'-..--  WHAT ALCOHOL DOES  IMPAIRS DIGESTION AND REDUCES  MUSCULAR POWER.

Speaking of Secretary Wilson's sample butter shipment to Great Britain,  Major Alvord pays:  The report from the agent abroad  upon the first lot shows that a different  sort of package from tubs must be used,  and future shipments will be either in  square wooden boxes, holding 56 Pounds,  or in splint boxes, holding 7 pounds  eaoh, packed four in  a case.   Tbe 56  . pound boxes are of half inch spruce or  poplar, 12 inches inside measurement.  For each box there are two strips of  parchment paper, 12 inches wide and 4  feet long, for lining, giving one thickness >at the sides  and  two at the  top  .and DOttom. The splint boxes are similarly parchment lined and have the  cover held fast by clamps of tin.  The. English butter market, Major  Alvord says, requires the packages to  be of the aliquot parts of 113 pounds,  the butter tp have but little color, be  trat -lightly salted and be of firta texture.  Dairy and Creamery.  Milk clean. That is to say, first olean  yourself thoroughly. Have your clothes,  your skin, your hands and your nails  clean. Next wipe off tbe cow's udder  and flanks with a damp cloth. If the  udder is filthy, wash it regularly and  wipe it dry. Then and then only are  you ready to draw the fluid from the  cow. Finally, again, milk clean. Get all  the milk cut.  Burr mills are better than steel mills  for grinding corn and cob meal together.  To test skimmilk or buttermilk in  tbe special bottles, use double.the quantity of milk and also double the amount  of acid, and, unless the scale on tho  neck of the bottle is specially graduated  count each space as only one-tenth of 1  per cent instead of two-tenths, as in  testing full milk in the ordinary bottle.  A dairy cow is fed for two purposes.  First, a sufficient quantity of feed  must be given to her to nourish her  body. Second, she is fed to produce  milk. All the feed she will digest after  her body is nourished goes to the production of milk, unless it is too full of  fat and starch. In that case it merely  fattens her without increasing the milk  flow. Bran and ground oats mixed together with some oilcake constitute a  good milk producing food. The way to  determine how much feed a milk cow  needs to. keep her in good order is to  watch carefully how much she eats  when she is dry. In all cases give her  Just what she will eat op clean, no  more. This, too, must be ascertained by  watching carefully eaoh individual  SOW.  : Dr. John H. Kellogg, of Battle. Creek,  Mich.i is recognized as one of the ��������� -greatest surgeons and medical authorities in  America, t.a.member of the - British Gynaecological society, of the Society of  Hygiene of France, of the British and  American Associations For the Advancement of'Science, of ,the American Society  of -Microsopists, ofthe American Electro  Therapeutic association, etc., and presi-  ' dent'of the Medical,. Missionary ; college.  Dr. Kellogg has conducted investigations upon 2,000 different persons, to  note thc effects of alcohol .upon the digestion and upon the muscular system.  He makes it his business to examine  stomachs, and upon his skill and -wisdom in this depends in great degree his  reputation. He has spent years in perfecting a mercurial dynamometer for  testing the strength of each group of  muscles in the body. He bas a chrono-  mesr-ar designed by Verdin "'o_ Paris,  which measures time, in hundredeths of  a second. ' - -i. .  -Dr. Kellogg give's- to the New York  Voice the-result of his investigation of  the action of alcohol on the human stomach.  He says:���������  "In the first year of insurance between  the abstainer and the nonabstainer thero  is a difference of 27 per cent., from the  second-to the fourth year a difference of  26 per cent.; after the fourth year only  10 per ecnt. Again, taking persons, born  in the United'States* by themselves, the  maximum expected loss 'on -abstainers  after thc fourth year of insurance was  .2,219,207 and on nonabstainers .3,542,-  071, and the actual losses respectively  were ������1,869,350 and $3,256,307, the percentages being 84 for abstainers, a difference of ,8 per cent, only."  Mr. McClinto'ck'has carried his examination still further and compared , the  relative longevity of American born and  foreign born abstainers, and he reports  that the , foreign born abstainers are  longer lived, which suggests that perhaps  teetotalism is better suited to the climatic and other conditions of life,, in  European countries than to those of the  United States.  Actuary McClintbck sums tip' the outcome .of his researches in .a cold, matter  of   fact way and says:���������   "  "There is no reason to distrust thc  general result of this investigation. It  does not show that thoso who,drink only  occasionally and not to intoxication or  those who drink habitualy, but lightly,  are in any way injured. It does noc show  chut all of those who drink heavily  must therefore necessarily die prematurely. It does show, however, that there  is enough injury done-to a sufficienc  number of individuals to make the deach  loss distinctly'higher'on the average. '  Mr. J. G. Van Gise, actuary of the  Equitable Life . Assuranco society, also  said :��������� . ,'  " All insurance records indicate that  abstainers from alcoholic beverages live  longer than nonabstainers. ' It is a fact  of universal experience that the highest  death rate is among persons engaged in  the liquor trade, while the lowest death  rate is among clergymen, who, as a  body, use less liquor than the men of  any other occupation. Another fact of  the same general bearing is that in Greac  Britain and France the governments sell  annuities in large numbers to persons  well, along in life. For a certain sum  they agree to pay the annuitant, a fixed  yearly income as long as he or she lives.  In issuing these annuities those governments charge two rates.  "It is an error to suppose that the  proper means of determining the effects  of alcohol upon digestion is by experiments performed by artificial digestive  mixtures outside the body. Digestion in  the flask is a very different thine from  digestion in the stomach. Digestion in  the stomach involves ��������� not only the so-  called chemical action of the gastrio  juice, but also Che formation of gastrio  juice. An agent which so paralyzes the  activity of tho gastric glands as to prevent the formation of gastric juice must  necessarily bo equally efficient in disturbing digestion, as an agent which  neutralizes or inhibits the action of the  gastric juice after it has been formed.  Professor Chittenden's experiments thor-  oughly'show chat alcohol moist decidedly  interfercs with the paralytic or dissolving action of the" gastric juice upon the  blood. My own experiments, which I  havo many times confirmed by repeated  observations upon different persons,  6how that alcohol prevents tho formation  of gastric juico in the stomach. Placing  these two facts together, we find that  alcohol, instead of being an aid to digestion, interferes with it in a most decided  manner."  Equally interesting with thc experiments upon the influence of alcohol upon  digestion are the experiments made by  Dr. Kellogg upon the effects of alcohol  upon the muscular system.  "A healthy young man of 18 years  was carefully exe.mined with reference  to the effect upon the muscular system  of two ounces of pure whisky, with the  following result: Strength withouc stimulant, equivalent to lifting 4,SSI pounds:  strength two hours after taking two  ounces of whisky, 3,385 pounds.  "The experiment was repeated in  different persons and with essentially the  same result in each one.  "The result shows that alcohol, instead of acting as a stimulant, or increasing '' the muscular and nervous  energy of the body, as it is generally  supposed to be capable, of doing, actua ly  diminishes both, and in a notable degree. It shows the actual strength to  have been diminished nearly 1,500  pounds, or about one-third.  "The only apparent exception which  could be taken to this conclusion was in  a test taken 15 minutes after the administration of the_alcohoLwhich showed  a small increase of muscular strength,  but a repetition of the test two hours  later showed a diminution of more thar-,  900 pounds, and ten hours later the patient's muscular strength was still 800  pounds below, his normal'standard The  explanation of the apparent . increase of.  strength immediately after taking the  brandy is found in the remark made by  the; young, man, that he felt more ready  for work than he did; before and lifted  with greater ease. He thought he could  lift as much again, but the result , of his  effort fell far short of his expectations..'.  This first effect was evidently due, not.  to any strength derived from the alcohol,  but,"to' the benumbing influenceof- alcohol  upon the nerve oenters, and the production of a state of mental exhilaration  arising from the increased , flow of blood  to the brain." -  Dr. Kellogg summed   up the  result of  his experiments,in the following, words:���������  .'..-���������:"The result of, the , administratibn   of  one ounce   of   alcohol   internally are as  follows:���������  ,  "First���������To diminish nerve activity.  "Second���������To diminish cerebral activity.  "Third-���������To impair the co-ordinating  power of the brain.  "Fourth���������To lessen muscular strength.  "Fifth���������To decrease digestive- activity  to a notable extent.  "Both my experience as a physician,"  concludes Dr. Ivellog_ ��������� emphatically.  "and laboratory experiments which 1  have conducted, to my mind, demonstrate very clearly that alcohol is not  only of no value as an aid to digescion,  but is in the highest degree detrimental.,"  Kept His Pledgre.  The lodge of Good Templar* at Basle,  Switzerland, has itsv meeting room provided frae of cost by the local government, and in addition it, receives the  sum of 80 francs per annum" to assist its  work.  Several members of the lodge are reformed men. . One very remarkable example was employed as an agent for a  wine merchant and was regarded, as a  hopeless drunkard. In a sober hour he  sought the help of the Good Templars,  signed the pledge and was placed upon  probation. Before he could become a  member it was necessary that ho should  quit his employment. He ��������� did so, ��������� and  was assisted by some of the lodge member to an inferior position in the-office of  a merchant. He kept his pledge, advanced in his business, and it now a  respectable member of the community.  Soon after ho joined the order he met  with an accident and was carried to ;*  hospital. His condition was critical and  his weakness extreme. The amending  physician ordered brandy and was about  to place it to the patient's lips when he  struck the glass from the doctor's hand,  exclaiming, "No,. I would rathe/ die  than over touch again the. stuff wh.ob  made me so vile!"���������.Banner of Gold.  AUGUST CROP BULLETIN.  '[  Drink and Disease.  A man who drinks alcohol in any form  \jo excess injures almost all uf his oi'gaus  It is found that he is affected with rheu  matism and with serious stomach difficulties, his heart is likely to be affected,  his liver thoroughly disordered and dis  eased, nerves in a fearful condition, besides other ills too numerous to mention.  These diseases are either caused directly  by the excessive use of alcohol or else  they are greatly aggravated by the use  of intoxicants, but they dor not in any  sense constitute the disease of inebrity.  Abstinence from liquor for a loug  enough period will restore these organs  probably to their normal condition.

How to Keep Out of Prison.  A mild mannered inmate recently  asked the writer what he considered the  "best way to keep out of prison." It may  be inferred that the answer to this was  .easy���������to remain honest; After looking  carefully over tha many easy routes to  prison we have concluded that one way  to keep out is to ^oultivate the habit of  drinking water. There is no danger of  your becoming an excessive water , fiend.  If you acquire a strong love for water,  it will be as easy to keep out of prison as  it is now to slide in on a beer keg. Water  and honesty mix as easily as do whiskey  and crime. There is ho more danger of a  constant, water:drinker coming to prison  than there is of a cigarette smoker living  to the age of 50.���������Stillwater Prison  Mirror.  JJTo Barley for Malt.  The Christian Scotsman, Glasgow,  states thaton_ day the late Mr. Joseph  Sturge, a dealer in grain, met a drunken  man and questioned him as to his condition. The man replied that he got  drunk at such and such a public house,  and he added. "The beer was made from  your barley." This statement startled  him, und the next issue of The Mark  Lane Express contained a notice from  his firm that under no circumstances  would they supply barley for malting  purposes. It cost them .4,000. a year, but  they had a clear odnsoience, and God  blessed them.  At the Breakfast Table.  .

An Estimate of the Yield of Grains, Root*  -,-.      and Fruits.  /The. following is; the statement of  acreage of crops, in Ontario for 1897,  prepared by the Ontario -Department of  Agriculture, and the "estimate ofyields  based on the reports of the regular-correspondents of the department under  date of August 9th.       ������������������:���������'������������������  It will be seen . from the' -tables that  yields of the present year on 'the wholo  promise to exceed those of ' 1S96, and  aiso to'exceed the average of the fifteen,  years 1SS2-96.        ; '  ''The amount of fall -wheat plowed up  this year was oo,000 acres, or 30,000 less  than in 1896.' Three-fourths of the  plowed up- area was east ���������'" of Toronto.  With an increased area of 73,000 acres,  the promise at present is nearly ten million bushels greater than was reported a  year ago. Tho high average of 25.5 bushels per acre is estimated. Over 80 per,  cent, of the fall wheat is grown west  and northwest of Toronto, und tho reports of condition are in tho main very  favorable. The commenc: "Best crop for ,  many years," is quite common. Thero  aro some complaints of too -much rain at  harvest time; but on tho whole the crop  was harvested in good condition. Tho  fall wheat, therefore, shows, as compared  with August, 1S96, an increased acreage,  *a iocreassd yicii J������? a***, und __ ifc-  creased value per bushel in' the market.  Spring wheat has taken a move up again,-  both in acreage and promised yield. Th������  average and yield of barley are both  somewhat below the previous year. For  several years the area sown to oats ha*  been in reasing. Over. 7,000 acres ar������  again added this ye������r, and' the yieli  promised is 4,000,000 bushels greater  than the enormous yield of - 1S96. In  round figures, .the crop is estimated at  87,000,000 bushels, against an average'of  63,000,000 for the years 1882-96. The  yields of rye , and , beans are above the  average, and that of peas below the average. '  As nearly two and a half million acres  are given over to hay tho value of this  crop -generally exceeds that of any single  grain crop. The average yields for six  years have been as follows: 0.94 tons per  acre in 1S91; 1.74 tons in 1892: 1.79 in  1S93; 1.39 in 1S94; 0.73 in 1895,and 0.93  in 1S96. There were three poor years and  three good years. The average- of the  fifteen years 18S2-96 - was 1.35 tons.  This year the yield ��������� was 1.63 tons.  Though in some eastern sections the -  yield was light, on the whole the hay  crop of Ontario has been heavy, and  quite a bit,above the average, the totaL  being 3 811,51S tons, as against 2,260,240  tons in 1896.  The acreage of corn has been increasing year by year as follows: 181,463 acres  in 1S92; 217,294 acres in 1S93; 267,348  in 1894; " 302,929 in 1895; 496>629 in,  1S96. It has now increased to 544,035 in  1897. ��������� The 1897 acreage, therefore, is'  three times that of 1S92.  Buckwheat and'mangels show an increase in area, potatoes a decrease, while  carrots and turnips are about the same  as in 1896, though both- are above the  average. .-  Hailstorms and heavy showers of   rain  have done considerable damage to spring  grain crops, and in many sections barley  is" reported to be colored.    As in addition  to the week's rain   of   July   heavy rains,  have occurred since   August   9th, it will'  be well to   note .that   the   reports '< as to-  quality of spring grain at.that,time may  have to be modified.    To offset  the damage to * grain   crops,    however, ��������� we have  the favorable effect upon corn, root crops  and pastures.     The   universal   report   is  good pasture, and cattle appear to   be in  first-class   condition'.       Cheese    factories,  have   been   generously    supplied     with  milk, and dairy prospects generally were  favorable.  Fruit.���������The   supply   of apples   will be  far below the average, as -might-, be expected after   the   immense   yield of last  year.    In a few instances large yields are  spoken of, but a considerable   number of  correspondents report the   opposite,'    and  too frequenlty mention is . made of scab.  Of   the   standard   winter   varieties   the  Northern Spy has done best.    Pears   will  give a better yield relatively than apples,  but mention is made   here   and   there of  the blight.    Plums suffered  considerably  from curculio and rot, but   many   speak  of large yields, and the season   has   been  a good one  for   careful   and   intelligent  growers.   Peaches are yielding heavily in  Lincoln, although there has been a tendency to rot among some   early  varieties.    ���������  In Essex and   other    counties   this fruit  has done very poorly.    On account of the  ravages of black-knot comparatively   few  cherry trees have been left in   the   Province, but as a rule these have been   loaded.    Several   correspondents complain of  the non-enforcement of the   law   governing   black-knot   in   plum     and    cherry  orchards.    Grapes promise a fair to good  yield, although in many quarters threatened   with    mildew    on   account   of the  damp season.   This crop is reported to bo  a week or two late.    In   most sections of  the Province small fruits were abundant,  raspberries   especially   giving a magnificent yield.        '   Confusing-.

Turkey will promise whatever is necessary 1  and as usual will delay and the old  women   powers   will scold,  but   general  peace will be maintained.  * *  Since the above w?s in type a cable  announces that Turkey has yielded to the  demands of Austria, which required immediate compliance, under the penalty ol  immediate bombardment. JThat is the  way to treat the "out-law of nations."  UNION BAY and CUMBERLAND.  We hear people some times  maintain  ing that the principal place in this section  will ultimately be   at   Union   Bay.    We  think  this  is   a mistake.    The  business  there depends entirely on the  coal industry     and    the    employment    of   many  here.   It does not appear to be the policy  of the Company to build up several small  places, but  rather one  big one.    Union  Bay   will   grow,   but its  growth will  be  limited to the men   required in  shipping  the coal there,   in the   coke industry and  improvements  necessary   for the  proper  conduct of such work, and their families.  A few will  settle   on the   outskirts of ;h *  the place.   AU this will of course, make a  very much larger   place than at  present;  but it is not   hkely   any lots   will be sold  there.   The gvowjh there as elsewhere in  Cnmox and Nelson districts will enhance  the  importance of   Cumberland   as   the  chief town and  market place.    We have,  therefore, nothing to fear but very  much  to be gratified at the developments taking  place at the wharf.    Our prosperity helps  Union Bay, and  its enterprise, prospects, j  t  NOTICE is hereby given that th  portion of the Comox ro:id, from ih  north end of 3rd St., Cumberland, tu tht  new road at Chinese cemetery is aban  doned.

On a.certain Saturday in June, year oft  our Lord. 1880, between the hours of sunrise and sunset, thc town  of ;W���������,   in   a  State which shall   be  nameless,' received  ������������������ ��������� two shocks. _���������  Small affairs,, concerning small people*  could never have thrown W���������   into  -such  a state of excitement, for she was a large  and wealthy town, and understood   what  - was due toiiei'self,  She possessed many factories, and  sometimes a man came to his death  among the ponderous machinery. Not  long since oc_ "hand." had stabbed  another, fatally; and,, still later, a factory  girl had committed suicide.  These thing's created- a ripple, nothing  more. It would ill become a town, boasting ics'aristocracy and "style''to grow  frenzied over the woes of such common  people., But -W��������� possessed a.,.'goodly-  number of wealthy'������������������ families, and some  blue blood. These were worthy of consideration, and upon these calamity had  fallen. Let us, read an extract,or,two  from the W��������� Argus, a newspaper of  -   much enterprise and exceeding veracity':���������-  "MONSTROUS DIAMOND ROBBERY  ���������BOLD BURGLARY.  ".This day we are startled by the news.  of a robbery in our _ midst, the like of  which it 1ms never, been our fate to  chronicle.  "When the servants at  Wardour. Place  arose   this  morning,' they   found   confusion reigning in the library, desks forced  open, papers strewn about, and furniture  disarranged.    One   of ' the long windows  had been opened by forcing the   shutters,  and then cutting   Out   a   pane   of  glass,  after .which the bolts were easily   drawn.  '' Miss Wardour was   at   once aroused,  and  further   examination   disclosed- the  fact that her   dressing   room;-'had   been  invaded,   and   every    box,     trunk   and.  drawer   searched.     The   beautiful   little  affair,   which   has   the   appearance of a  miniature combined desk  and   bookcase,  hut which   contains   a   small   safe   that  Miss Wardour believed burglar proof,. had  been forced,   and   the   jewels   so   widely  known    as    the     'Wardour   diamonds,'  stolen.   Quite a large sum of money, and  some papers of value, were also taken.  "Most of < our readers are familiar with  thc history of the Wardour diamonds,  and know that they represented a fortune.  "The burglary was effected without  noise, not a' sound disturbing Miss Wardour;-'or any of her servants, some of  whom are light sleepers, and they haye  not a single clue by which to trace the  robbers.  "Miss Wardour bears the loss with  great calmness. Of course every effort  will be made to recover the jewels, and  capture the thieves. It is rumored that  Mr. Jasper Lamotte, in behalf of Miss  Wardour, will visit the city at once, and  set the detectives at work."  This was shock number one for the  public of W���������.  Miss Constance Wardour, of Wardour  Place, was a lady of distinction. She  possessed the oldest name, the bluest  blood, the fairest face, and the longest  purse,'to be found in W���������; and, the  Argus had said truly, the Wardour diamonds represented a-fortune, and not a  small one.  Emmeline Wardour, the. great grand-  ' mother of Miss Constance, was a belle  and heiress. Her fondness for rare jewels  amounted to a mania, and she spent  enormous sums in collecting rare gems.  At her death she bequeathed to her  daughter a collection such as is owned by  few ladies in private life. She also be-  ���������queathed to her daughter her mania.  This daughter, after whom Constance  was named, added to her mother's store  of precious stones, from time to time,  and   when,   one   fine   day,    a   bank, in  3V By LAWRENCE M. LYNCH  ������k.

Mr., Lainotto has not  yet returned, and is still ignorant; of his  ..daughter's flight." .,  ':' Thus abruptly and rclucta-irtfly ends the  second Argus bombshell, and this same  last bombshell had been a very different  thing to handle. It might have been  made far more sensational, andk, the editor had sighed as he penned the cautiously worded lines: "If was a monstrous  mesalliance, and a great deal could be  said in disparagement of Mr. John  Burrill;" .but Mr. Lamotte was absent;  the brothers Lamotte Were absent, and  until he -was certain what steps tfas^  'would,'take in this matter, it were wiss  to err on the safe side. Sybil'was an only  daughter: - -Parents arc   sometimes prone  to forgive .much; it might- be best to  "-let Mr. Burrill off easy."     >  Thus to himself   reasoned   the   editor,  and,   having   bridled   his     pen,"   much  against his will, he set   free   his tongue,  and   in   the   bosom " "of   his . family discoursed very freely of Mr.   John Burrill.  "My   dear,   it's   unendurable," he announced to the .little .woman   opposite,  with the nod of a   Solomon. , "It's   perfectly incomprehensible, how   such a .girl  could do if.    Why, he's a braggart  and a  "bully.   He   drinks in bur public "saloons,,  and handles a woman's name as   he does  his beer glass.    The factory men say that  he has boasted openly  that ��������� he meant to  marry Miss Lamotte, or   Miss   Wardour,  he couldn't decide which. By the by,- it's  rather odd that   those   two-young   ladies  should meet   with   such   dissimilar misfortunes on the same day."  ,    Mrs.   Editor,   a   small   woman,   whb,  from constantly .hearing,   and   absorbing  info flie vacuum of her   own   mind,   the  words of wisdom falling from the mouth  of her husband, had acquired   an expression of being always   ready   and- willing  to be convinced, looked up from  her teapot and propounded the following:���������     -.  "W-what do. you s'pose, she eloped with  him for?"  "Maria, I believe I have told you  frequently that there is ho such ������word as  's'pose.' I don't suppose anything about:  it. It's enough to make one believe in  witchcraft. Miss Sybil Lamotte held her  'headfabove us; above plenty more,, who  were the peers of Mr. John Burrill. Last,  year, as everybody know, she refused  Robert Crofton,"who is" handsome," rich,  and upright in character. This spring,  they say, she jilted Raymond Vandyck,  and people who ought to know, say that  thoy were engaged. Why, Ray Vandyck  ���������comes of thc best old Dutch stock, and  his fortune is something worth while. I  wonder what young' Vandyck will say to  this, and how that high-stepping, old  lady, his mother, will .fancy having her  son thrown over for John Burrill. I wish  I knew how Jasper Lamotte would take  it-' ..''������������������'.  So, in many a. household, tongues  wagged fast and furious; misfortune  had smitten the ��������� mighty ones of W���������,v  and brought th'em within range of the  gossiping tongues of their social inferiors;  and, while the village oracles improve  their opportunities, and old women hatch;  theories,. the like of which was never  heard on earth, let us make the acquaintance of some of the "mighty ones."  l' what -are   you  Mr. Lamotte!'  CHAPTER II.  which she had deposited some thousands  of her dollars, failed, and she found  herself a loser, she brought her craze to  a climax, by converting all her money  into diamonds, set and unset.  At her death, her granddaughter,  Constance, inherited these treasures, in  addition to a handsome fortune from her  mother; and, although the original collection made by Emmeline Wardour contained a variety of rare stones, opals,  amethysts, pearls, cameos, etc., besides  the many line diamonds, they all came  to bo classed under the head of the  "Wardour diamonds."  It is small, wonder that W��������� stood  aghast at the thought of such robbery,  and it is impossible to say when the talk,  the wonderment, the conjectures, suggestions, theories, and general indignation  would have ended, had not the second  shock overborne the first. Once more let  r.he Argus speak:���������  "A STARTLING DISCOVERY.  "Yesterday afternoon, while the town  was filled with the excitement caused by  the Wardour robbery, Miss Sybil Lamotte, the beautiful daughter of our  wealthy and highly respected citizen,  Jasper Lamotte, Esq., eloped with John  Burrill, who was, for a time, foreman in  one of her father's mills. Burrill is  known to be a divorced man, having a  former wife and a child, living in W���������;  and his elopment with one of the aristocracy has filled the town with consternation.  '' Mr. Lamotte, the father of the young  lady, had not been from home two  hours, in company with his wife, when  his daughter fled. He was en route for  the city, to procure the services of detectives, in the hope of recovering the  War-  Wardour Place, the home of Miss  Constance Wardour, and the scene of the  "great Diamond robbery,"' lies a little  east - from' the town, away from . the  clamor of its mills, and the " contamination of its canaille. " '-'���������"  It is a.beautiful old place, built upon  . a slight elevation, surrounded by stately  old trees, with a wide sweep of well-kept  lawn, bordered with rose thickets, and  dotted here and there with great clumps  of tall syringas, white lilacs, acacias, and  a variety of ornamental trees and flowering shrubs.  The mansion stands some distance  from the road, and is reached by a  broad, sweeping drive and two footpaths  that approach from opposite directions.  In the rear are orchard and gardens,  and beyond this a grassy slope that curves  down to meet the river, that is ever  hurrying townward to seize the great  mill wheels and set them sweeping  round and round.  The mansion itself is a large, roomy  edifice, built by a master architect. It at  once impresses one with a sense of its  true purpose: a home, stately, but not  stiff, abounding in comfort and aristocratic case; a place of serene repose and  inborn refinement. Such, Wardour Place  was intended to be; such, it has been  and is.  Miss Constance  Wardour,   mistress   of  the domain and last of the race,   is alone  in her favorite morning room.    It is two  hours since thc discovery of the   robbery,  and during  those   two   hours   confusion  has reigned supreme.    Everybody   except  Miss "Wardour, has seemingly   run   wild.  But Miss Wardour   has   kept   her   head,  and has prevented the servants from giving the aliirni   upon   the   highway,   and  thus filling her house with   a   promiscuous mob.    She   has   compelled   them to  comport themselves like rational  beings;  has ordered the library' and dresing room  to be closed,   and   left  untouched   until  the proper officer shall have made proper  investigations; and then she has  ordered  her   maid   to   serve   her   with   a cup of  strong coffee in the morning room;   and,  considering   the    glittering   wealth   she  has just been bereaved of, Miss  Wardour  '������wi*;T*������e_. ..*���������>������������������������������������   ���������"" ���������'__,.,....  looks very calm and   unruffled, , and sips  her coffee with a relish.  Presently the door opens  and  a   lady  enters: a very fat'lady, with  .florid complexion, restless, inquisitive, . but   good-  humored   gray'���������eyes, and plenty   of, dark  , crinkly hair, Combed low about her ears.  This'is'Mrs'' Honor Aliston, a  distant  relative   of   Miss   Wardour's,     who   has  found a most delightful   home with that  young   lady,   ever ' since   the  .'death   of  .^-    Grandmamma 'Wardour,. for 'Constance  _���������__     Wardour has been an   orphan   since   her  childhood.  .    ���������-.,   ,   '  Mrs.   Aliston   comes   forward,    rather  2^s    rolls forward;; and ^sinking, with a  grunt  ���������^���������>     of satisfaction, into   the largest   chair at  hand, fixes two gray eyes upon   the fheiress, which that young Tady,   perceiving,  says: "Well?"-  '.,',,.    . .'./ ,'..   ���������  "Don't say 'well' to me.

"Why,  Aunt Honor,-you didn't expect to see the  robbers running across thef country, did  you?"  "Not I," disdainfully."I wanted to  see how long it took the1 news to get to  ���������Mapleton."

"Oh, I am fond of  Kay, you know, and I think , he would  offer some unique f tig xestions; besides���������  dear me,. auntie!'' breaking off suddenly,  "I wish this farce was at an end."  Mrs. Aliston's gray eyes twinkled.  "Why, child, you may be thankful it's no  worse. Suppose���������"     , *  "Hush, Aunt .Honor. 'Walls have ears,'  you-'knOw.

Are they bringing  a legion of people? .Auntie,   I don't believe you have had a cup of coffee   yet."  " Don't you?   Well, I have,   my  child.  Let's   go   out   and   meet   those  people.

Without heeding this last remark, Constance   Wardour   throws   open the door,  and   passes fbutT?and   down., the hall to  meet the party just entering.  There is Mr.". Soames,-   the  mayor   of  W-���������, very bustling and   important; Corliss, the constable, exceedingly shrewd in  his own opinion,   and   looking   on > this  occasion - as   wise ��������� as   an   owl; Thomas  Craig,    Esq.,   sub-editor   of  the  Argus;'  and   some   lesser   lights,    who,    on   one  pretext and another, hope to gain admittance and sate their curiosity.  ���������. "Really,  Miss ��������� Wardour,''   begins   the .  bustling. mayor,   "really,   this   is a sad'  affair!    Must   have   given you a terrible  fright, and then the   loss!:���������but   we will  find them.

Corliss, however, comes gallantly to the  rescue. He is equal to any emergency;  there is nothing; if -you take his word as  proof, that Corliss is hot equal to.  :''Firsti"'-sayspoi,liss' -'!T think we had  better���������ahem���������investigate." .  "To be sure���������investigate, of - course���������  Miss Wardour, you have���������''  '' Closed up the disturbed rooms,'' interrupts Constance,, promptly. <fYes,  sir; I fear you will find little there to  assist you. Nelly, ( throw open the library. " ���������    c  The servant, thus commanded, took  from her mistress''hand a key, unlocked  the-library door'and thi-ews it open; and  then the farce bega,n:  If there is anything in all our dispensations, of law and order that is calculated to strike astonishment to the heart  and mind of a foreigner; it is our offhand way of conducting a police investigation. In other countries, to be a mag-  .istrate, a notary, means to be iri some  degree qualified for the position; to be a  constable, means to possess, a moderate  allowance of mother wit, and a small  measure of "muscular Christianity;" and  to discover a crime, means to follow it  up with a thorough and systematic  investigation. Such is not our mode.  With us, to hold office, means to get a  salary; and to conduct an investigation,  means to maunder through some sort of  farce, which gives the criminal time to  make good his escape, and to permit the  newspapers to seize upon and publish  every item, to detail every clue, as fast  as discovered; all this being in favor of  the law-breakers, and detrimental to the  conscientious officers of justice.  In France, they complain of too much  red tape in the police department. Let  them supply us out of their superabundance; we have too little.  While Corliss "investigates," , the  mayor delivers an impromptu oration;  and Mr. Craig, of the Argus, takes  notes, according to his own light.  Out of his inner consciousness, the  Argus man evokes an idea, which Corliss is not slow' to adopt and use as his  own.  '' I suppose they will have ��������� a ��������� detective  down as soon as possible," says Mr. Craig,  as Corliss lays one ruthless hand on an  overturned chair. "If I were'you, Corliss, I would, leave everything exactly as  I find it for the benefit of whoever works  up the case."  Corliss slowly lowers the chair to its  former position, and turns upon Craig a  look of offended dignity.  '' Why,'- what did you supposed I intended to do?"  How John's Wife  Laid  the  Foundation of  a Fortune.,  It is a difficult matter to one accustomed to. small daily indulgences to realize the expense thus incurred.  A Manchester calico printer was asked  on his wedding day by his shrewd wife  to allow her two half pints of ale a day  as her share of home comforts. John  made the bargain cheerfully, feeling it  hardly became him to do otherwise, inasmuch as he drank two or three quarts  a day. The wife kept the home tidy, and  all went well with them, but as she took  the small allowance each week for household expenses she never forgot the "pint  of ale, John."  When the first anniversary of their  wedding came, and John looked around  on his neat home and comely wife, a  longing to do something to celebrate the  day took possession of him.  "Mary, we've had no holiday since we  were wed, and only that I haven't a  penny in the world we'd take a jaunt to  the village and see mother."  "Would thee like to go, John?" she  asked.  There was a tear with her smile, for  It touched her heart to hear him speak  tenderly, as in the olden times.  "If thee'd liko to go, John, I'll stand  treat."  "Thou stand treat, Mary! Hast got a  fortin left thee?" .  "Nay, but I've got the pint of ale,"  said she.  "Got what, wife?"  "The pint of ale," she replied.  Whereupon she went to. the hearth,  and from beneath one of the stone flags  drew out a stocking, from which she  poured upon the table the sum of 65  threepences (������22.SI), exclaiming:���������  "See, John, thee can have the holiday."  "What is this?" he asked in amaze.  "It is my daily.pint of ale, John."  He was conscience   stricken  as well as  amazed and charmed.        '  "Mary, hasn't thee had thy share?  Then I'll have no more from this day."  And he was as good, as his word. They  had the holiday with the old mother,  and Mary's little capital, saved from  "the pint of ale," was the seed from  which, as the years rolled on, grew shop,  factory, warehouse, country seat and  carriage, with health,, happiness, peace  and honor.���������Selected.  i ��������� ���������  ���������  ' "Umph!" retorted Craig, with -a disrespectful sniff,- '"I rather thought you  intended to sit down in that chair."  Turning his back upon the flippant  young man, so sadly lacking in respect  for the "powers that be," Corliss pursues  his investigations. He has read, in niany  novels and sensational newspapers, vivid  descriptions of similar examinations, and  he. goes to work after the most approved  fashion.- He scrutinizes the window, the  open blind, the cut pane, the hangings  within and the. . downtrodden shrubbery  without; he darts out, and dives in; he  peers under everything, over every thing,  into every thing;, he inspects, over and  again, the mutilated writing case, or  safe,from which the treastire was actually  taken; and raps and sounds it as if in  search of some private receptacle that the  thieves hady overlooked, - or Miss Wardour  never found out. He goes down flat upon  his stomach, and scx-atinizes Miss Wardour's scrupulously clean carpets, in  search of a footprint in the dust that is  not there.  While he performs these feats, the  mayor follows him about solemnly, and  full of wondering admiration; and the  man of the Argus scribbles, and chuckles  and grins maliciously.  Meantime, there.-have been other arrivals at Wardour Place; and Constance,  leaving the inpectors to their .own devices, is standing in her drawing-room,  talking earnestly with a broad-shouldeiv  ������d, handsome man, who looks much  surprised at,the tale she is telling.  "How unfortunate, and how fortunate, "he says, depositing his haf upon  the table beside him.' "I .came here to  speak of, our river excursion, and lo, I  am in -the" midst of a sensation." .  Constance laughed.  "And surrounded by forlorn females,"  she supplemented.'   "Aunt   Honor won't  recover   from   the   fright, in   a    week,  although she looks so fierce at   present.'',  -Mrs.   Aliston,   who   is   seated   at the  farthest window, half buried by   the lace  draperies,   and  looking steadfastly down  the road," pops out her head  to   retort :���������  "It's time to look fierce; don't I know  that those Vandals in the next room will  make as big a.muddle as if they were in  sympathy witti the burglars?''���������'  Constance laughed easily.  "They can't do much harm, auntie';  the burglars did not leave a trace; I am  positive of that.'' Then turning ' to the  new comer, "I am very glad you came  just now; .Doctor Heath; you may help  me witli ' your advice. I have sent for  my lawyer, Mr. O'Meara; but, for some  reason he does not come."  "Mr. O'Meara left for the city last  night."  "Oh! I am sorry for that; he would be  sure to know how to proceed, and who  to employ. Doctor Hoath you are of  course acquainted in the city; toll me of  a good man, a really good one. I intend  to spare no expense in hunting .these  robbers."     ,  "And these diamonds," from behind  the curtain.  "Aunt Honor, you are like the ghost  in the pantomine; come out and be one  of us." -���������������������������  "I won't."  "Very well, then; but seriously, doctor Heath, if I can't secure .but the one,  let it be the robbers.' Do" you know I have  a fancy that if we caught them or him,  it would put an ������ end to some of our  mysteries. You have not been among us  very long; but, don't you think we have  more than our average of crime?"  '' I had not observed, Miss Wardour.''  (To be continued.)  Miffht be Cool.  If the earth were not enveloped with  atmospift-re, the temperature on the surface would be about 330 degrees Fahr,  below zero.         -   .   . .  ���������  THE  PINT OF ALE.  OHXLDEEFS COLUMN.

Dr. Talmage will be of great  solace to ������ people who are finding their  life a rough voyage. Text, Mark iv, 86:  "And there were also with him other  little ships, and there arose a great storm,  of wind. And the wind ceased and there  was a great   calm."  (������������������ Tiberias, Galilee, . Gennesaret^three  names for the same'lake. No other gem  ever had so beautiful a setting. It lay in  a scene of great luxuriance; the surrounding hills high, terraced, sloped,  jrroved, so many hanging gardens of  beauty; the waters rumbling down between rooks of gray and red limestone,  flashing from the hills and bounding  Into the sea. In the shore were castles,  armed ��������� towers, Roman baths, everything  attractive and beautiful; all styles of  vegetation in shorter space than ip.almost  any other space in all -the world, froih  tbe palm tree of the forest to the trees  of a rigorous climate. ���������'  It soemed as if the Lord had< launched  one wave of beauty on all the scene and  it hung and swung from rock and hill  and oleander. Roman gentlemen in pleasure boats sailing the lake and country  men in fish smacks coming down to drop  their nets pass each other with nod and  shout and laughter, or swinging idly at  their moorings. < Oh, what a wonderful,  'what a beautiful lake!  . The Storm. <  I, It seems as if we shall have a quiet  night. Not a leaf winked in the air; not  a ripple disturbed the face of Gennesaret,  but there seems to bo a little excitement  up the beach, and wo hasten to see what  It is, and we find it an embarkation.  From the' western *- shore a flotilla  pushing out; not a squadron or deadly  armament, nor clipper with -valuable  merchandise, nor piratic vessels ready to  destroy everything they could seize, but  I a flotilla, bearing messengers of life and  [light and   peace.    Christ   is in the front  ��������� of tho boat. His disciples aro in a smaller  | bont. Jesus, weary .with much speaking  'to large multitudes, is put into somnol-  jenoo by the rocking of che waves. If  j there was   any   motion   af all,   tho ship  ��������� was easily righted; if the wind passed  [from'one side, from the starboard to the  larboard or from'the larboard to the starboard, the boat would 'rock, and by tho  gentleness of the motion putting the  ; Master asleep. And they extemporized a  pillow mado out of a fisherman's coat.- I  think no sooner 'is Christ prostrate and  ! his head touching the pillow^ - than he is  | sound asleep. . Tho breezes of ' tho lake  irnn their fingers through tho locks "of  , the worn sleeper, and the boat rises and  i falls like a sloeping child on the bosom  > of a sleeping mother.  J    Calm    night,    starry   night, beautiful  *nightl    Run up all the sails, ply   all the  i oars,;and let tho large boat and the small  i boat glide over gentlo'' Gennesaret.    But  the sailors   say .thoro   is   going   to be a  ohange of weather.    And   even the passengers   can   hear   the   moaning   of  the  ���������' etormas it comes on   with   long   stride,  [ with all   the   terrors   of   hurricane  and  | darkness.   The large boat trembles like a  I deer at' bay trembling among the clangor  iof the hounds;    great   patches   of   foam  iare flung into   the   air; the-sails of the  'vesBels loosen, and the sharp winds crack  like pistols; the smaller boats like petrel  poise oh the cliff-of the waves   and  then  plunge.    Overboard   go   cargo,   tackling  and masts, and   the .drenched   disciples  rush into the back part of   the   boat and  lay. bold   of  'Christv; and   say unto him,  " Master, carest thou not that we perish?"  i That great personage lifts his head from  It:: H-\  the pillow of the fisherman's coat, walks  Ito the front of the vessel and looks out  i into-the storm. Ali around him are the  j _maller boats, driven in the tempest, and  j through it   comes   the   cry   of drowning  mem "By the flash of the lightning I see  j the calm brow ;of, Christ as the spray  'dropped from his beard. He has one  I word for the sky and another word for  ''the- waves: .'.Looking   upward   he   cries,  "_*eace!" ' "Looking downward he says,  '��������� "Be still!" ; :-  '. Stilling: the AVaves.  ���������!������������������'"��������� The waves fall flat on .their faces, the  i foam melts, the   extinguished 'stars   re-  j light their   torches.     The   tempest   falls  , dead and Christ stands   with .his foot on  ithe neck of the storm.    And   while   the  : sailors are   bailing   out   the   boats   and  I while they are   trying   to   untangle   the  . cordage the disciples stand in amazement,  i now looking into the calm sea, then into  the calm sky, then into the   calm   of the  j Saviour's   countenance,    and   they  . cry  out, "What manner of man is this,   that  even the winds and the sea obey   him?"  .'     The subject in the first place impresses  me with the fact that it is very   important to have   Christ   in   the ship, for all  ' those boats would have gone to   the bot-  ; torn of Gennesaret if Christ had not been  | present.    Oh, what a lesson for you   and  j for me to   learn!    Whatever   voyage   we  ���������undertake, into whatever   enterprise   we  start,' let us always   have   Christ   in the  ship.   Many of you in   these   days of re-  1 vived commerce are starting out   in new  : financial   enterprises.      I   bid   you good  cheer.    Do all you can   do.    Do it on as  high a plane as   possible.    You   have no  1 right to;be a   stoker   in   the ship if you  ' can be an admiral ofthe navy.  You have  ho right to be a colonel of a   regiment if  ��������� you can command a brigade.    You   have  no right to   be   engineer   of   a   boat on  river banks or near the coast if   you can  take the ocean steamer   from   New York  to Liverpool.    All you can do,  . most tension of   body,    mind  you   are    bound   to   do; buV  . Christ   in   every   enterprise,  \ every ship!  I     There are   men who   ask   God to  He has been with them ih the past. . No  trouble can overthrow them. The storms  might come down from the top of Mount  Hermon and lash Gennesaret into foam  and into agony, but it could hot hurt  them. But here is another man who  starts out in worldly enterprise, and he  depends upon the uncertainties of this  life. Ho has no God to help him. After  awhile the storm comes and tosses off  the masts of the ship. He puts out his  lifeboat. The sheriff and the auctioneer  try to help him off.: They can't help him  off. He must go down. No Christ in the  ship! Here are young men just starting  out in life., Your life will be made up  of sunshine and shadow.,, There may be  in it arctic blasts or tropical tornadoes. I  know hot what is before you, but I know  if you have Christ with you all shall be  well.' ..-.'.���������������������������' Aa:- : *!'. .    -. '���������:.. ;���������/���������'.'. ���������      .���������:���������:: ''  You;may seem to; get along; without  the religion of Christ while everything  goes smoothly, but after .awhile, when  sorrow, hovers over the soul, when the  waves of trial dash clear over the hurricane deck, and the bowsprit is shivered,  and the halyard are swept into the sea,  and the gangway is crowded with piratical disasters���������oh, whaf would you then  do without Christ in the ship? Young  man, take God for your portion, God for  your guide, God for your help; then all  is well; all is well for time, all shall be  well forever. Blessed is that man who  puts in the Lord his trust. Ho shall  never be confounded.  Look Out for .Breakers,  But my subject also impresses me  with the fact that when^people start to  follow Christ they ' must not expect  smooth sailing. These disciples got into  the small boats, and I have no doubt  they said: "What- a beautiful day this  is! What a smooth sea! What a bright  sky this is! How delightful is sailing in  this boat, and as for the waves under the  keol of the boat, why. they only make  the motion of our little boat the more  delightful." But when the,winds swept  down, and the sea was tossed into wrath,  then they found that following Christ  was not smooth sailing. So you have  found it; so I have found it. Did you  ever notice the end of the life of the  apostles of Jesus Christ? You would say  that if ever men ought to have had a  smooth life, a smooth departure, then  those men, the disciples of Jesus Christ,  ought to have had such a departure and  such a life.  St. James lost his head. St. Philip  was hung to death on a pillar. St. Mat  thew had his life dashed out with a halberd. St. Mark was dragged to death  through the streets. St. James the Less  was beaten to death with a fuller's club.  St. Thomas was struck through with a  spear. They did not find following Christ  smooth sailing. Oh, how they were all  tossed in the tempest U John Huss in the  fire; Hugh MoKail in the hour of martyrdom; the Albigenses, the Waldenses, the  Scotch Covenanters���������did they find it  smooth sailing?  - But., why go to history when I can  find all around me a score of illustrations of the truth of this subject? That  young man in the store trying to serve  God while his employer scoffs at Christianity';- the young men in the same  store antagonistic to the Christian religion teasing him, tormenting him bbout  his religion, trying to get him mad, saying, "You're a pretty Christian!" Does  this young man find it smooth sailing  when he tries to follow Christ? Here, is a  Christian girl. Her father despises the  Christian religion. Her mother despises  the Christian roligion. Her brothers and  sisters scoff at the Christian religion.  She can hardly find a quiet place; in  which to say her prayers. Did she" "find  it smooth sailing when she tried to follow  Jesus Christ? Oh, no. All who would  live the life of the Christian religion  must suffer persecution. If you do. not  fir-,1 it ih one way, you will get it in  another way.  The   question   was   asked, '.'Who   are  those nearest the throne?" and   the'   an-  with   ut-  and  soul,  oh,   have  Christ   in  help  them at the start   of   great   enterprises  swer came back, "These are they who  came up out of great tribulation"���������great  flailing as."' the original has it; great  flailing, great pounding���������"and had their  robes washed and made white in the  blood of the Lamb." Oh, do not be disheartened. O child of God, fake courage!  You are in glorious companionship. God  will see you through all these trials, and  he will deliver you. ~  ... My.subject also impresses me with the  fact that eood people sometimes get very  -much frightened. In the tones of these  disciples as they rushed into the back,  part of the boat I find they are frightened almost.to death. They say, "Master,  carest thou not that we perish?" They  had no reason to , be frightened, for  Christ was in the boat. I suppose if we  had been uhere we would have been just  as much affrighted.  Perhaps more.-        ���������  In all ages very good people get very,  much affrighted. It is often so in our  day, and men say: "Why, look at the  bad lectures. Look at the spiritualistic  societies. Look at the various errors going over the church of God. We- are going to founder. Tho church is going to  -.perish. She is going down." Oh, how  many good people are affrighted by triumphant iniquity in our day, and think  the church of Jesus Christ and the cause  of righteousness are going to be overthrown, and are just as much affrighted  as the disciples of my text were affrighted. Don't worry, don't fret, as though  iniquity were going to triumph over  righteousness.  The Religious Gale.  A lion goes into a cavern to sleep. He  lies down, with his shaggy mane covering the paws. Meanwhile the spiders  6pin a web across the mouth of the cavern, and say, "We have captured him."  Gossamer thread after gossamer thread,  is spun until the whole front of the cavern is covered with the spiders' web, and  the spiders say, "The lion is done; the  lion is fast." After awhile the lion has  got through sleeping. He rouses himself,  he shakes his mai|e, he walks out into  the sunlight, he does not even know the  spiders' web is spun,- and with his voice  he shakes the mountain.  ! So men. come, spinning their sophistries and skepticism about Jesus Christ.  He seems to be sleeping. They say: "We  have captured the Lord.    He  will never >  Iqome fort^ ag^ta ujibn the nation. Christ  ._ . -*���������. - ^i   is captured, and captured forever. His  religion will never make any' conquests  among men." But after awhile the "lion  of the tribe of Judah" will ..rouse himself and come forth to shake mightily  the nations. What is a spiders' web to  the aroused lion? Give truth and error a  fair grapple, and truth will come off  victor.  But there are a great many good people who get affrighted in other respects.  They are affrighted in our day about  revivals. They say: "Oh, this is a strong  religious gale. We are afraid the church  of God is going to upset, and there are  going to be a great many people brought  into the church that are going to be of  no use to it." And they are affrighted  whenever they see a revival taking hold  of the churches.  As though a ship captain with 5,000  bushels of wheat for a cargo should say,  some day, coming upon deck, "Throw  overboard all the cargo," and the sailors  ,should say: "Why, captain, what do you  mean? Throw over all ( the cargo?"  "Oh," says the captain, "we have a  peck of chaff that has got into' this  5,000 bushels of wheat, and the only  way to get rid of the chaff is to throw  all the wheat overboard." Now, that is a  groat deal wiser than the talk of a great  many Christians who want to throw  overboard all the thousands and tens of  thousands of souls who havo been  brought in through great awakenings.  Throw all overboard because . there is a  peck' of chaff, a quart of chaff, a pint of  chaff! I say, let them stay until the last  day. Tho Lord will divide the chaff from  the wheat.  No Dancer in Revivals.  Oh,   that   these   gales   from     heaven  might sweep through*all   our   churches!  Oh, for such days as Richard Baxter saw  in England and   Robert   McCheyne saw  in Dundee!   Oh, for such days   as Jonathan Edwards saw in   Northampton! .   I  have often heard   my   fahter   tell of the  fact that in the early part of this century  a revival broke��������� out-in'Somerville,    N.J.,  and some   people . were   very much agitated about it.    They said,' "Oh,-you are  going to bring too many   people into the  church at once!" and they sent down to  New Brunswick to get John   Livingston  to stop the revival.    Well,   there , was no  bettor soul in all   the   world   than John  Livingston.    He went up.    He looked at  the revival. They wanted him to stop it.  He stood in the pulpit   on   the   Sabbath  and looked oyer the solemn auditory, and  he said: "This,-  brethren,   is   in reality  the work of God.'    Beware   how  you try  to stop it."    And'  he . was   an old man,  leaning heavily on.his staff, a' very   old  'man. And he'lifted that staff   and took  hold of the small   end   of   the staff and  began to let it fall very slowly   through,,  between the finger and "the   thumb, and  he   said, "Othou impenitent,   thou   art  falling now���������falling away from life, falling away ffom^eace and heaven,falling as  certainly as that cane it falling   through  mychand���������falling certainly,   though perhaps falling very slowly." And the cane  kept on falling   through   John   Livingston's hand.    The   religious   emotion in  the audience was overpowering  and men  saw a type,of   their   doom   as   the cane  kept falling-and falling until   the,, knob  of   the   cane   struck    Mr.    Livingston's  hand, vand he; clasped it stoutly and said,  "But the grace of God can stop  you as I  stopped'.tha'f .cane," and then there   was  gladness all through   the   house   at   the  fact of pardon and   peace   and salvation.  "Well,'.'-said,the people after the service,  "I guess you had better send  Livingston  home    He "is making the revival worse."  Oh,   for   the    gales   from   heaven    and  Christ on board the ship.    The danger of  the church of God is not in revivals.  Again, my subject impresses me with  the fact that Jesus was God and man in  the .same being. Here he is in the back  part of the boat. Oh, how tired he looks,  what sad dreams he must have! Look at  his countenance; he must be.thinking.of  the cross to come. Look at him, he is a  man���������bone of our 'bone, flesh of our  flesh. Tired, he falls asleep; he is a man.  But then I find* Christ at the prow of  the boat. T hear him say,'"Peace, be  still," and I see the storm kneeling at  h-is feet, and the tempests folding .their  wings in hispresence; he is a God.  If I have sorrow and trouble and want  sympathy, I go and kneel down at the  back part of the boat, and say, "O  Christ, weary one of Gennesaret, sympathize with all. my sorrows, man of  Nazareth, man of the cross." A man, a  man. But if 1 want to conquer my spiritual foes, if I want to get the victory  over sin, death and hell, I come to the  front of .the boat andT'kneel down and  I say, "O Lord'Jesus Christ;'; thou who  dosf hush the- tempest, hush; all my  grief, hush all my temptation, hush all  my sin." A man, a man; a God, a God.  I learn once more from this subject  that. Christ can liush a tempest. It did  seem as if everything must go' to ruin.  The disciples had given up the idea.of  managing the ship, the crew were entirely demoralized; yet Christ rises, and  he puts his foot oh tho ' storm and it  crouches at his feet. Oh, yes! Christ can  hush the tempest'.  The Safe Harbor.  You have had trouble. Perhaps it was  the little child taken away from you���������  the sweetest child of the household, the  'one who asked the most curious questions, and stood around you with the  greatest fondness���������and the spade-' cut  down through your bleeding heart.; Perhaps it was an only son, and your heart  has ever since been like a desolated  castle, the owls of the night hooting  among the falling rafters and the crumbling stairways.  Perhaps it was an aged mother. You  ajways went to her with your troubles.  She was in your home to welcome your  children into life, and when:,they died  she was there'to pity you; that old hand  will do you no more kindness; that white  lock of hair you put away in the casket  or in the locket did not look as well as  it usually did when she brushed it away  from her wrinkled brow in the home  circle or in the country church. Or  your property gone, you said, "I have  so much bank stock; I have so many  government securities; I have so many  houses; I have so many farms;" all  gone, all gone.  Why, all the   storms   that   ever tram  pled with their thunders, all the shipwrecks have not been worse than this to  you. Yet you have not been completely  overthrown. Why? Christ hushed the  tempest. Your little one was taken  .tway. Christ says, "I have that little  one. I can take care of him as well as  you can, better than you can, O bereaved mother!" Hushing the tempest!  When your property went away, God  s.iid, "There are treasures in heaven, in  banks that ever break." .  There is one storm into which we  .will all have to run the moment when  we let go of this life and trv to take hold  of the uext, when we- will want all the  grace we can have. We will want it all.  Yonder I see a Christian soul rocking on  the surges of death. All the powers of  darkness seem let out against that soul���������  the swirling wave, the thunder of the  sky, the screaming wind, all seem to  unite together, but that soul is not  troubled. There is no sighing, there are  no tears. Plenty of tears Jn the room at  the departure, but he weeps ho tears,  calm, satisfied, peaceful. All is well.  Jesus hushing the tempest! By the flash  of the storm you see the harbor just  ahead and you are making for that harbor. Strike eight bells. All is well.  Into the harbor of heaven now  we glide.  , We're home at last, homo at last.  Softly we drift on its bright, silv'ry tide,  We're home at last, home at last.  Glory to God, all our dangers are o'er.  We stand secure on the glorified shore.'  Glory to God, we will shout evermore.  ,. We're home at last, home at last.  DISEASE CONQUERED.  _R. WILLIAM'S PINK PILLS GADS  ANOTHER GREAT VICTORY.  ���������liy Deeds of Kindness.  Tho more of Jesus in the soul the  sweeter will be our flavor, and herein  shall other people know that Jesus  abidoth in us because we have some  good measure of His unselfish spirit. It  is not to be demonstrated by the mere  expressions of loyalty to Him, or even by  remembering Him at the sacramental  table onjy, but by deeds of kindness to  those who represent Him in His humanity. The grapes on a Christian's .branoh  ought to hang low enough for a poor  child to ipluck them.  Give and Ye Shall Receive.  " Cast thy bread upon the waters and  thou shalt find it after many days."  Cast your bread of kindness upon the  world; cast your bread of wisdom upon  the world; benefit somebody by what you  have. "Give and if shall be given unto  you, good measure, pressed down and  running over. Do you think a good deed  ever went unrewarded? I answer for you.  Never. A good deed is in itself its own  reward. It pays an interest, in the best  bank-book that ever was held, and that  is your own heart. Every good deed exalts, ennobles the doer. Consciously or  unconsciously, you are finding the bread  that you cast upon the waters in a  nobler life, a life of larger possibilities;  for one good deed leads to another, and  life to be real is full of such avenues of  action, such growth, such possibilities.  These good deeds may cost you little or  they may cost you much.���������Rev. M. D.  Tolman.  Some Queer Karnes.

A Reporter's Searching- Investigation Into  a Case at Orangevillo���������The Claims Made  on llehalf of This Medicine Fully Borne  Out���������The Greatest Healing Medicine of  thc Age.  From the Orangeville Sun.  In   a   cosy   little house   in    Margaret  street, in    this   town,    lives    Mr.    John  .Garrity, his wife and family.     They   are  indeed a happy family,   although   a few  years.ago a sadder   household   would  be  hard to find.     Their   happiness   was not  occasioned by the sudden   obtaining of a  fortune, but by   something   much   more  precious���������the   restoration   to health of a  wife and  mother when   everyone   whispered that she   must  die.    Our   reporter  heard of Mrs. Garrity's illness and   cure,  and for the benefit of our readers   investigated the   case;    what   he   learned    is  well worth repeating.    A   few years ago  Mr. Garrity kept a well known   hotel at  Chelterham and was known far and wide  for   his     kindness,  and   hospitality; his  wife   too, was noted   for   her amiability.  However,    she   was   stricken  with a peculiar sickness, her health failed   rapidly  and from one   hundred   and  forty-seven  pounds her   weight   became   reduced to  ninety-five pounds.    Fainting   spells became frequent   and a   continual   pain in  the back of her   head   almost   drove her  frantic.    Physicians were in   attendance,  but the doctors   all   said   there   was no  hope. Mrs. Garrity saw death staring her  in the face, and the   thought   of leaving  her little children caused her ��������� much- sadness.    She   was advised to   try Dr. Williams'   Pink   Pills,    but   thought   they  could not possibly do her any good when  physicians had   failed ,to' alleviate   her  sufferings.      Hoping,    however,   almost  against hope, she procured a supply, and  wonderful to   relate   she   had   not been  taking Pink Pills long when the   dreadful   symptoms   of   her   illness began to  pass away, and to-day   she is the picture  of health.    A few months ago Mr.    Garrity and family removed to   Orangeville,  and in conversation with our representative Mrs. Garrity said:    "I   cannot   find  words to   express   my   thankfulness for  what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have done  for me.    Why it is almost miraculous.    I  wish that everyone who is   suffering as I  was will hear of this remedy.  We always  keep a   box   of   the   Pink   Pills   in the  house."  . -Why He Was Like the Venus de Milo.  He was'in love with a young woman  who lives on the West Side and who  never failed to entertain him on the occasion of his frequent calls, but the affair  is broken off now. '  On tho occasion of his last call he took  particular pains, to make himself attractive, his "avowed intention teing to tell  his beloved of his adoration for her. They  sat for some time in the parlor of her  home, and then started for a stroll in  the -moonlight.  . After walking several blocks, during  which time neither one had said much,  the young woman suddenly stopped.  "You remind me of the Venus de  Milo," she" exclaimed.  Thinking liH had at last made the desired impression, he smiled and thanked  her for the supposed compliment. It encouraged him and he proposed on the  spot, but his suit was coldly "rejected.  On his return home he consulted an  encyclopedia and was deeply chagrined  to learn that the Venus de Milo was  without arms.���������Chicago Journal.  $100 Reward $100.

Home is the centre and =ource of  life, and woman is the ..home keeper;  -.Whateverconcerns the home, tberef-jre-  is of vital in-portancetd her. ^ ���������������������������..  : 2. The enemies of home are her  enemies .und she. is called upon to defend  both ii and herself against iliern. Iniem-  peninre is acknowledged to be tire grear  est enemy of ihe home, the le;iderof vices;  in whose wake many deadly foes follow.  "But'..why is woman called to combat  the evil?.' *vVhy cannot men regulate the  affairs of the world and leave us to the  management of the homes?" Partly  because they caniiit; partly because thev  will not. The world is simply a collection  of homes. Possibly ������������������������������������for., every ten happy  and v\ ell ordered house-hoids, where, man  is indus.rious and temperate, there', ate  live where, man is improvident and intemperate. The women of these homes are  helpless; the children grow up in tainted  atmosphere, and so go out to Ciirse the  world by 1 heir own sinful lives, and by  their influence counteract -much of ,the  good otherwise existing. It it: very plain.  The mother love that shields her own  child must also shield her neighbor's  chiid. She is prompted to do this by her  own self preservation and that of her  home, and by that love���������Christ like���������  which, for the sake of the lost, steks to  save them.
