The investigation will  be open and the evidence of everv   one  who knows anything about it will be  taken   under   oath.

Fourteen members of those remaining have  been found alive on the rocks. It is difficult yet t������ trace the cause of the disaster;  but so far as can be ascertained, it seems  that a strong wind was blowing and there  was a heavy swell on and a strong current  ruuuinij. Dinuer was ready when a  sudden criuh made it apparent that the  steamer hjid gone ashore. The captain immediately wetit ou deck and tho survivors  suy they saw him ou 1he bridge doing all  that lay in tho power of a brave man to  lessen tho disaster.

Glatfelter lectures for  the North Side Self Culturo club, on Can  and Nineteenth streets. Her auditors are  young women who are dependent upon  their own resources.  She nob only tolls them how to male  bread, but makes it and bakes it in their  presence, after which it is passed around  lor these young ladies to inspect and taste.  Miss Glatfelter is a daughter of Dr.  Noah M. Glatfelter of 4720 North Twentieth street.  She is a small,  pretty woman  of 28  years.   Sho has brown hair and gray eyes.  Her face is oval; her voice is soft, clear '  and musical.  She dresses for, her lessons in a plain  brown skirt, with a pink shirt waist, and  wears tbe regulation cooking school apron  of white with tho yoke and epaulets of  wide white ombroidery. Her cap of white  linen and pink ribbon Is set jauntily on  bar, small head, and she makes a very  pretty cooking teacher.' .  "To begin our lesson this evening," she  says, "I will tell you what you must do to  start your bread to have the best results.  "There aro five ingredients essential to  making good bread���������flour, yeast, milk,  water and salt.  "Prepare in a mixing bowl a cup of hot  water and a cup of sweet milk/ After th*  normal or charged wltn being cranky ana  crotchety^  A croaker sees or hears a perfectly unnatural child domineering, petulant,  wholly intractable, excessively disagreeable and reflecting with the utmost, accuracy tbe weaknesses and fellies of. its parents,'and without consideration or forethought rushes to the conclusion that all  children are demoralized because one child  is intolerable.  Such persons should cut themselves loose  from the bonds of prejudice and go out  into tbe highways and byways of the  world and look'for little children. They  ire not necessarily, of tho tenderest age.  ill about the land axe half crowns who  ore as unspoiled by tbe world aa the firstborn of our first parents might have been.  Dear, little, wild flowers, they spring up  everywhere and aro so full of piquant say;  ings and queer and leading questions that  the wisest head might be puzzled to keop  track of them. When one reflects tbat bad  children are really only an exceedingly  small minority and that there aro native  forces and natural laws that make little  children ,the sweet, lovable, comforting  sroaturesto which all of our hearts go out,  tho'wonder grows that any sane person  can ��������� indulge in such wholesale condemnation.���������Now .York Ledger. t  MISS LISBETH M. GLATFELTER.  milk is thus heated let it cool until lukewarm,or, if you use a thermometer, to 75  degrees.' Then add h one-half ounce yeast  '. cake dissolved, in a tablespoonful of cold  water.- Add also a teaspoon!'ul of salt.  . "'' "With a wooden spoon stir in sifted flour  until a dough is formed stiff enough to be  turned from tho mixing bowl to tho board  in a mass. Knead this dough, adding  flour'as .needed, until it becomes smooth  and elastic. Then put it in a well greased  bowl, brush lightly with molted butter,  cover with a bread blanket and set to:riso  three hours or until light, at a temperature of 75 degrees.- When light, form into  loaves or rolls without adding more flour  to the board.  "Place in greased , pans, brush with  melted- butter, cover and set to rise for  one hour or until light. Then bake: It  should bo nearly double tho size and should  be so light in tbe pan that the weight is  hardly felt. Tho oven should bo hot  enough to brown flour in two minutes.  If tho loaf weighs one pound, it should bo  baked 45 minutes. Takeout, brush with  milk and leave to cool uncovered.  "If you want your bread to rise in one  hour, use three cakes of compressed yeast.  This amount of yeast will not make tho  bread sag, as some housewives seem to  think, but will only cause it to raise  qiiicker and in tbe end you will havo just  as good bread as you would have had had  you let it stand three hours, using ono  cake of yeast. If you want your bread to  stand six hours use one-half *cako compressed yeast and one-fourth cake if 'you  desire to let it stand 12 hour's.  "Thisehort process makes just as good  bread as, if not better, than tho old process, besides saving a great deal of valuable  time."  j Children Now and of Tore.  Thero is a disposition apparent on the  part of sorao pessimistic individuals to bewail what they declare ,to be the fact that  there aro no longer any simple, childish,  old timo children; but,- instead of these, a  class of little grown ups who have all of  * the airs and none of tho sense of their elders. It is always a matter for regret when  such an impression gets a footing, as it is  not only manifestly unjust and misleading, but it fosters a spirit of fault finding  with youngsters that cannot bo other than  harmful.  While there aro undoubtedly a few pert,  faded out, palo and puny children, whose  home training���������or, more strictly speaking,  absence of training���������makes them odious, it  is a fact that can easily be proved that the  rank and fllo,of these "small fry" aro just  as innocent, just as full of misohief, just  as readily angered and grieved and as easily pleased as the little ones of long ago.  True, they may bo a shade more forward  and a shadow moire self ossertive than  their grandparents were, but this is the  spirit of the age, and tho feet of tho babies  of all years must, to an extent, fall into  line and keep time to the music of the  march of progress. But between times  these little ones are the dearest, sweetest,  bravest, breeziest beings that ever cuddled  down in a broad and sheltering lap after a  long day of "suchgood times," or crawled  into tho ever open arms when things  didn't go right and "everybody was just  as cross as four sticks." Child nature can  be nothing but child nature. It isn't in  the regular order of affairs that it should  be, and if some ono has bred and educated  * monstrosity, that is no reason why nil  children   should   ha n.'ieii.sod of   httinir   nh-  ' Sweeping and Dusting*  . In sweeping and dustinc a room article*  Tftac cau tie movca witn ease, mciuamg  curtains, tablecloths and cushions, should  be carried/from the room, shaking them  now so that it need not be done after the  rougher work is accomplished. All upholstered furniture should be brushed with  - a whisk broom and protected with covers  made for this purpose���������they may be made  of muslin or unbleached calico���������and books  should also be protected.:  Next brush down the ceiling and walls.  Provide a large earthenware bowl of water, to which, should be added a spoonful  of ammonia. The bowl will be found more  convenient than a bucket, as the extra  breadth across tho top will admit tho  broom with more ease. What is the plan"'1  you now mean to pursue? Is it ib collect  together .every cparticle of dust and dirt  and carry it from tho room or to see how  large a cloud of dust you can throw into  the air with every stroke of the broom to  settle back on Jibe carpet where it was before yoir "began ?"  You need not trouble yourself to answer  by word of mouth. Tho first stroke of  your broom will be the best possible an-  Bwer you can give.       '.  Many think sweeping something any  one can do without being taught, but a  really good sweeper is the exception and  not tho rule, even among the ranks of experienced housemaids.  "'���������-���������  Don't handlo your broom as if it were a  hoe and you were hoeing the- garden,' for  you dig moro dust into the carpet than  you dig out, to say nothing of abusing  your carpet. You will find a light, 6hort  stroke of the broom moro effectual.  ,  Dip tho broom into the water; shako off  into the bowl all the water possible.  Sweep a small space and as the dust collects on the broom rinse off, changing - the  water as it becomes discolored.  Go over tho whole carpet in this way-,  brushing the dust thoroughly from the  corners and edges of the carpet. When the  dirt is' collected from off half the carpet,  tako it up before sweeping the other half.  This will save dragging it about over all  the carpet. Carpets having a nap should  be swept the right was*. This can easily  be determined by stroking it with the  hand.���������Philadelphia Ledger.  Need of Safety Valves.  Tho wisdom and unwisdom of 6elf repression is weighed by Mary E. Baldwin  in a paper on "Safety Valves In Home  Life,'"? where 6.he contends , that "a high  pressure life calls for protective measures,  and the woman who engages mind and  , heart in her purpose, even though she may  not be classed among public workers, instinctively seeks her safety valves. These  are peculiar to her individuality, and suit,  as she imagines, ber needs; but sometimes they are not altogether chosen wisely and are often overused. , The intense  nature, with the greatest need for letting  off steam, is the one which will make the  mistake in this direction. Action and reaction'will be equal with her. Tho homo  of such a woman is often a place where  tragedy is frequently enacted. Her nervous  system, wrought up to a point bordering  upon frenzy; her mental and physical energies following its lead, there comes a  moment when tho strain must be relieved  or mind and body will give way under tho  great weight.  "It is not an easy thing to acquire the  habit of withholding tho worst from the  dearest friend and showing him only the  best, but it is possible when the heart is  right and the purpose has even a germ of  strength. One brave, gentlo woman, full  of tho firo that would have oarly consumed  her but for her wiso use of safety valves,  confided to a friend hor experience in trying to relievo tho tension of mind and  spirit without giving discomfort to thoso  whom sho loved. Her piano became her  abiding friend whenever she felt tho need  of lotting herself down from a too highly  6truiig condition. Sho played off her feelings and gradually found herself calmed  and rested. And thero wore times when a  favorite poot offered himself as guide into  tho realm of restfulness and step by step  led her on to tho heights where she found  repose. The woman with mental resources  and with wiso discrimination will learn to  choose her safety valves with referencu to  tho comfort and peace of the home and  will thus find a gain in self respect and in  strength of will."���������Chicago Post.  Womanhood' and Difjnity.  Of all the virtues that a true womanly  woman should possess to rise in tho estimation of the averago man, dignity is generally conceded to be tho leader.  With this attribxite there comes naturally that peculiar reserve essentially attractive in a woman. It is all very well to admire in tho abstract the fluffy, kittenish  sort of a woman, but a man demands in  his wife above all else that reserve of manner which commands and receives respect.  Tho dignified woman never has any  complaint to make of familiarity on the  part of men with whom she comes in con- ���������  tact either socially or in bnsinoss life. Her  dignity is a shield, against insult and the  bricrhtest   iflwp.l in hor crown- of wornanlv  attributes. The dlgmnea woman or necessity need not be so frigid in her demeanor.  ��������� as to be repellent, but she can be possessed  of a winsome sweetness all her own, which  is emphasized by the quiet calm that is the  - outward evidence of mental equipoise. The  flippant badinage which so many women  think' attractive  to the other sex fails to  win half the admiration that   is accorded  the quiet dignity of. the one who never allows herself to lapse  into any familiarity  of epeecb or action on which a false construction might be placed.    If uature has  not endowed woman with,this commendable characteristic, it is well  to "set about  its  cultivation  at once, for  it  is a well'  known fact that it'is quitei as easyto"train  a set*of manners as.a set of morals, and a9  the  attribute of dignity can   be classified  under both headings it is easily seen what;  rare advantages must accrue to the woman -  who wins it for ber own.���������'Philadelphia  Times.  Well Made Bed*.    .  Few-things are more satisfactpry than a  sweet, fresh, well made bed, says a bright  woman in the London Figaro.:    To' begin  with, every article should,bo taken.off and  laid separately over a chair, and a strong/  current of air 6hould bo allowed, to circulate through the room.' Then the mattress  .Should be turned, and,from end to,end, as  fiis' insures it being worn more evenLr.'  ���������rid it will hot sink-in the-middle, which,  spoils the looks of any bed, however beautiful its cover.    The sheets' should always  be, am ply. large and in making a bed au  excellent plan   is   to place One blanket  lengthwise across it.    In this way there is.  a double "advantage���������less  weight on'the  shoulders and plenty of chance of a firm'  tucking up.    A  restless child might bo  prevented from taking a cold if blankets  were 'placed across the bed.,     . -  From a mere child the Duchess of Saxe-  Coburgj has been most particular, about  ber beds, and when she first came to this  country her royal highness'Was-much  chaffed about this weakness by members  of the royal family.5' The'queen,l<howove"r,  who ,1s also most particular about, her  beds, took' her daughter-in-law 'spartj'and,'  although now the sheets are no longer  sowed down to the mattrcss,'they'are com-'  .posed; of >the most exquisitely,fine, lines  that can be produced arid stretched like a  tight -rope over tbe: most perfect>mattiess  that can bo manufactured' in Paris, in  which ' capital the making of mattresses  has been brought to a fino art.  Another royal lady who quite agrees  With, the Duchess of Saxo-Coburg as to the  fineness of her linen and-tho tightness of  drawing the shetts is the ex-Empress Eugenie." Arid her imperial highness has an  odd fancy to have her.bed so low as to  give.a.yisitor to tho iinperial bed chamber  the impression that sho sleeps almost on  the floor.

About  that time they- begin to fastendong garments about their hips, tbe effect of which  Is to impede their gait and -give "them" an  awkward shuffle. In course of time it does  worso and interrupts the development of  .the legs and thighs. Among tbo laboring  class an additional misshaping is accomplished by the practice of carrying burdens from an early age upon the back, for  tho support of which broad .straps are  passed over the shoulders and crossed in  front, pressing directly upon ,tho breasts.  When a Japanese girl reaches the ago of 16  without having undergone either of the  processes of deformity, sho is a wonder to  the eye and remains so until 25 or possibly  a little later; then she ceases to charm for  a certain period in any way, excepting by  her manner, and that is generally preserved to tho last. But as she grows old  she has a chance of bocoming quite delightful again. Thero is nothing nicer  than a dignified and white haired old Japanese lady. She is always happy, for she  is always much respected and chorished by  her juniors, and at a certain ago the natural high breeding of the race appears in  her to attain its crystallization.���������Exchange.  Pretty Finger Nails.  Evory woman can afford a pair of small,  sharp scissors, a nail file, a bit of chamois  6kin and a little box of pink powder, and  with these aids sho can keep her nails in  perfect order. Th9 best way to manicure  one's own nails is to soak the finger tips  in warm water for a few minutes, then  press back with the blunt end of tho file  tho cuticle which grows over the base of  the nail and snip it off with tho points of  tho scissors. This must bo done with care,  not to mutilate the skin.  Every trace of dirt should be removed  with a nailbrush and'hot water and 6oap  and the nails cut closo to the sides, bub  left rather long in the middle, not pointed, but rounded into the desired filbert  shape. Next the edges of the nails should  bo filed smooth when a little bit of the  pink powder may be applied to each nail,  which is finally polished with the chamois  skin.  Sweetness of Manner.  "I cannot forbear pointing out to you,  my dearest child," said a distinguished  statesman to his daughter, "tho great advantages that will result from a terapercto  conduct and sweetness of manner to all  people on all occasions; Never forget that'  you are a woman.

'        ������������������'��������� '���������"   '     '. '  Mr. Tesla is not prepared, to make  public thu details of his invention.''He  always gives his conclusions to the world  through'articles in* a scientific periodical,''  which ho' writes with the'utmost caro.  But he swid to me: "You , may say that  I have succeeded in making a machine a  thousand times .more powerful than1'any  ever made before. With ifc I expect to  send messages without wires over long  distances���������probably 100 miles.".  I asked Mr. Tesla if his invention was  co near, perfection that it might be of use  in 'the war with Spain.  "I think so,'"he said. "If it can- be  used I have no desire for compensation.  It is not for sale. But I will, freely offer  it to the Government. Ono reason I cannot tell you-just what my machine is is  that if ifc can be use-! on our ships ifc  will give us an advantage, and I shall be  proud to have been of so much use to  tho country.  ���������'Of this invention I can tell you that  it is tho result of more than, five years  of hard work. The experiments which  havo been carried on in Europe and  which have attracted so much comment  follow ' tho lines that; I laid down some  years ago. For a long time the experiments abroad did not follow these lines,  and they were not successful. Signals  could be sent, but for only short distances. When they returned to my  system they found that they could send  messages to a much greater distance  "Five years ago in the courso of a  Jecture, speaking of the transmission of  intelligible signals, or perhaps oven  power to any distance without the use of  wires, I said: 'I am becoming daily  more convinced of the practicability oi  tho scheme, and though I know full we'.l  that tbe great majority of scientific men  will not believe that such results cun be  practically and immediately rcalizo'l, yet  I think that all consider the development  in recent year:* by a number of workers  to have been such as to encourngo  thought and experiment in this direction. My conviction has grown so strong  that I no longer look upon this plan of  energy or intelligence transmission-as a  mere theoretical possibility, but ' as a  serious problem in. electrical engineering,  which must be carried out some day.  . " 'Tho idea of transmitting intelligence  without wires is tho natural outcome of  tho most recent results of electrical  investigations. Some enthusiasts havo  expressed their belief that telephony to  any distance by induction through the  air is possible. I cannot stretch my  imagination so far,but I do firmly believe  that it is practicable to disturb by means  of powerlul machinos the electrostatic  condition of the earth and thus transmit  intelligible signals and perhaps power.  In fact, what is there against the carrying out of such a scheme? We now know  that electric vibration may be transmit-  tea through a single conductor. Why  then not try to avail ourselves of the  earth for this purpose? We need not be  frightened by the idea of distance. To  the weary wanderer counting the mile  posts the earth may seem very large, but  to that happiest of aH. men, the astronomer, who gazes at tho heavens and by  their standard judges the magnitude of  our globe, it appears very small. And so  I think it must seem to the electrician,  for when he considers the speed with  which an electric disturbance is propagated through the earth, all his ideas of  distance must comnletely vanish.'  "1 have been working on that problem  ever since. For a long time I experimented with delicately adjusted instruments, but I ''found them unreliable. I  would send signals for a few blocks and  then a strong current of electricity  somewhere in tho neighborhood or some  atmospheric condition would interrupt  them. After a time I saw that this w.ould  not  do.    I,must have something reliable.  "Then I set about .making a machine  which would give me more powerful  vibrations. I have succeeded beyond my  expectations. I have made a machine  which is' a thousand times as powerful  os any now known. With ifc I could stop  every electric current���������every telegraph or  telephone in this neighborhood." With a  sweep of his arm the inventor suggested  that populous district which surrounds  the building in Houston street, where his  laboratory is.  "But could not some ono else destroy  the effectiveness of your signals with a  counter current?" asked I..  r Mr. Tesla hesitated and , answered  rather slowly: "Yes, yes, he could. But  he'd have to be a devil of a fellow."  Which ingenuous statement I interpreted!  as meaning that the "other fellow'' would  have to have as; strong a machine as  that of, Mr. Tesla.    ;    ,   ,'<  Mr.   Tesla ,told   me1'.that     the   new'  machine   filled   very   little'space.    "It is '  not   so   large   as   tbat   Dlate."   he Raid,  jnaicating u very srnuu one  (wmen  scoou  against the wall, covered' \-itli   scientific  magazines.  "It could be put on board a ship without inconvenience thon?"      '     v ,  "Certainly."  "And how about the current to operate  it?"      , , ���������   . ���������  "It,could bo had from a small dynamo"  such as they" have aboard all  tho ships of  the navy.',' - .     , ���������     ,,  Mr.   Tesla   says   his r original-  theory-  concerning   the   transmission   of- signals  and possibly of power without   wires has  been confirmed' by his experiments.  At another place Mr. Tesla said that if  it was at all.possible to transmit signals  .through tho earth, or its environing',  Imodium,| "distance does not mean /anything."' In fact, he not only suggested  the wireless telegraph first, but he first  suggested the means .by - which all after  results have' been achieved and the fact  that they could bo made tp cover great  distances. The most that is claimed for  Marconi by scientists is that he has  succccedod in telegraphing without wires  for a greater distance than anyone before  him. But if Mr. , Tesla's new machine  accomplishes what he confidently predicts  Marconi's laxirels will be plucked very ;  quickly from his brow.  What makes the new machine more  important is'"its superiority to tho  influence of others. A recent writer on  Marconi's system said that ,"Inr war  telegraphy would become impossible as  soon as a hostile spark generator should  cause- a permanent -' disturbance of tho  characters." If Mr. Tesla is not mistaken only. r"a devir'of a fellow'" will be  able to disturb his signals, and if tho .  Tesla system can be kept a secret there is  no : ��������� likelihood ' that . any .. disturbing  element will, enter into the transmission  of signals by the army and'navy of tho  country which is so fortunate as to secure  tho   invention.���������Charles Culver Johnson.

Alicel had' "such   difficulty     in  waking in the morning that she usually came down when the porridge' had  been poured out on the plates, the bacon fried, and the tea made;  and she'  had   such   a   pretty   way  of  excusing  -   herself that    nobodv    grumbled.      At  ' dressmaking and  millinery  Alice  was  in  her  element.      The  garments  that  set  off' Ellen's, trim   and   taut,   figure  were her work.   So 'were the hats  in  which   both   sisters  turned   the" young  ,  farmers^ heads    on    Sundays. 1   As .it  .   stood," tne division, of labour had much  .   in' its favour. ^ .But how .if. one rof\ the  sisters ileft .home, 'and.?

There was' an1 evening when ' Alice  I-,-i had to, go to the, village, store a mile'  away. ^ rE)leiv thought,-t -"Suppose  young Hills should come in' to"-night."  The thought was a pleasant one. She  opened the front door, plucked a rose  that gleamed" there in the evening  light,-and pinned it to her belt. She  had read of people'drawing others to  them by force of will. She willed  that Hills should come. Still keeping  her mind upon him she sat down at  the organ in the parlour' and plaved  *" Annie Laurie."

" Sorrv  for what ?" j  . " What. vou  said  about, there  being  no poetical young men."  " Oh, no; it's a lament that there are  none.'-'  This sort of thrust and parry went  on till Nell made a "palpable hit." Slfe  wounded Hills' pride.

As Hille sauntered.on his way to the  village, in the evening light, he was  almost, unconsciously to ���������. himself,  weighing the respective merits of the  two Purley girls'.

" What's that ?" whispered Alice,  when she heard the plate fall; disentangling herself hurriedly, from her lover's embrace. Young Hills looked  started. He came in at the wicket,  Alice timidly following, and they found  the plate broken on the boulder.  ��������� " Nell must have dropped it���������she must  have been listening," said Alice.  " Nonsense. Nell* is feeding the  cows, I'll be bound.' Nell wotild not  stick about listening. There is some  other solution. Nobody has been here  to-night, that I'm certain of."  ' - " Oh ! - I know what" it was;" said  Alice, with a reassured manner. Nell  must have given a tramp a plate of  victuals sometime, and he brought it  here to the seat to eat his lunch. Tiien  he would look about for somewhere to  put the plate, and he would lay it on  thi's bough of the apple tree. ' See,  here is a place just made for it right  over the boulder."  She put the two large fragments on  a fork of the branch. It was quite  plain that the plate might have-beeri'-  lodging there and fallen down.  " You are a regular Sherlock Holmes," he said,. kissing, her again, "out  how did the plate fall?"  " Oh a squirrel, or a bird, or the wind  *or something."  But there was a doubt in the girl's  mind as she went along the road after  saying good night to her lover, and.entered the house. Suppose Nell had  been listening after all?

Nell's   lot  was the bjtterest.:   She could not help  repeating  to   herself those  unwelcome  sentences of Hills.     "I am hard, and  I   have   no   romance     aboyt     me.      I  could  not   possibly     be  in   love.     Oh,  no."      And   she   laughed .  bitterly-as.  she   moulded  her  butter.      " It's  very  nice   to   have   some   one   to   love   me;  but I wish I could tell Nell," thought'  Alice.  ���������   Then  she   pictured ��������� to-herself  the   delights   of  the'future   when,   as  a    prosperous    physician's    wife,   she  should  live  in   the   city  and  have   all  sorts   of   social   delights.      "Only   till*  the fall," was  in Hills'  mind all day,  though   all  he   tai'd  was,   " Gee."   and  " ha," to his horses.     "Under this was'  the   refrain   "what   a   little dear Alice  is,   and   she   is .mine,     mine,    mine."

He  ja^Bid   that  nothing  had  better be; announced  till his last exam. was. over,  land spoke vaguely of his  father land,  ^allowances,   so   that   Alice   had \ to 'be'  content.     All the   same,she   wept   in  secret sometimes at the)' thought ,that  she must not even tell her sister.'When  she  had   her- holiday  in August, .'and  went  home to the "farm  for a, week,  the   sense  of a separating  secret', between  her and   Ellen made her heart  'y���������ery heavy;? ^Moreover' she was driven  to .gainful    prevarications    about'  Hills whei#Ellen enquired about him.  She was much paler when Hills again  saw her in the    city    after    his 'long,  summer-holiday at his father's farm,  with  its'.harvest  work.     As   for-him  he was   like   a   giant , refreshed, ' and  began   his   studies   again   with   much  ��������� vigour.

He 'bought oa  suit  of  evening  clothes  and a  book on etiquette.     He missed  no  opportunity  of  informing    himself  of  the   usages  of  polite   society.     -Hs-  was a very fine-looking    young  man.  He scon knew .a number of fine girls,  any one of   whom   would be   a  most  desirable  match   for, a young doctor.  And  his  little  milliner  began  to  pine  in secret  as 'she bent busily over .her  bcnnets������and .hats.  One .day, as .she, .was'returning from  her lunch at mid dav. she' met him on  tne, principal  street,    we  was  walking  with a very stylish girl, whom Alice at  one'e recognized, as one of the customers'of   the   establishment  she  worked  for.    Her   oxvn,   hands   had   made     the  jaunty  headgear) thejr damsel /wore   so  becomingly!15     How' pretty,, and sprightly   she   was.!*-- Whv .should .she   not  De���������daughter  of  a  wealthv   father   as  -she  was,, and  with-nothing to do  but  'enjoy' herself ?  ��������� The'two were-carrying on >ah-animated and laughing conversation.'     How strange it seemed to  Alice to  bow* to. Hills, and for him  to  pull off his -hat and just pass her with  a smile and a bow !     The street swam  before   the   poor   little   woman's   eyes.  She:'went-* !s,into ^he   store   where   she  was employed, feeling mean and poor.  The . soot-stained   roofs   which   formed  the' prospect from tho lofty workroom  window never looked more prosaic.    It  had   only , one   redeeming     feature,   a  slice   of "water   and   sky   and     distant  scenery  seen  through  a narrow opening  between tall buildings.    ������������������ But now  this  view  of  the  lake  only  made  her  wish   that   she   could   sink   down   into  its quiet depths and be forgotten, and  not be in the way of people an5-_ more.  Then for a moment or two  pride and  anger would   come  to   her   relief,   and  she' asked herself why she should care  so   much  for  one   who   was   evidently  not^worth caring for; whose head was  turned  by  every  pretty face   he  saw.  and who thought more of himself than  anything' or anybody in the  world ?  Then, the whistle, in the speaking-  tube communicating with the store below blew, and the forewoman said that  Miss Purley was wanted. So Alice dried  her eyes and hastened down. She  had to receive instructions about a  hat-that a; smart young woman was  ordering. At a glance Alice saw that  it was the������very girl she had seen walking with Hills. She was accompanied  by another girl, and the two were, chat-  teririg volubly about hats. Then Alice  was consulted and took her orders, and  it was all that the little woman could  do to keep mistress of herself. ,-The  girl was pleasant enough patronizing ey.en. ..., ,She. was a forcible, good-  natured,4   high-coloured     sort     of   girl.  " un, you aosura gin. ��������� x Deneve i  shall have to freeze him to-night, if  only ��������� to show what a perfect lunatic  you are."  The name Alice read on he-r card of  directions was " Miss Maud Delan-  court." ,  " Are you going out bicycling tonight ?" presently asked Alice of her  vis-a-vis, when she had returned to  the workroom. The answer being an  affirmative on������, Alice asked if she  might go along.  " Two's, company, but three's none,"  replied,Miss Purvis, the girl addressed.  " I'm going out with the young gentleman *I" go with. But it's too bad vou  shouldn't go. Have you got a wheel?"  " I could hire one." said Alice.  "Then I'll get my brother,,Joe, to go  with you. He's at a bicycle works.  He'll-be pleased enough. Between you  and me, he thinks you look stunning.  He was the one you saw with me the  other night."  ��������� " Will he teach me to ride ?"  "[Good gracious !      Can't you ride?"  " No,  Pve  never ' been  on  a   wheel,  but I want to learn.V  " Well, Miss Purley, you are the  coolest cucumber I, ever met with.  Pass the pins. There how do you  think that looks ?"  . She held up the bonnet she was trim-  'mirig.  "That's splendid;   howniae    it will  look   in   church   on   Sunday."  '    " I can't help laughing to think how  you will fall   off the Avheel  to-nirrht !  But I thought you had, a/young man."  " Did   you ?"   said   Alice.    ' ,  t    "Still, it, doesn't do to-be going, out  with rthem .all 'the   time.      They; get  tired 'of you.       They     think     they're  everything to you. and that if the:/ lift  up their finger you've got to go wherever   they  want.

He getp  mad and sulks, a'nd then, after a bit,  I come round.     Oh, it's just sweet !"  " You   don't   think    your    brother'll  think me a. bore f.o-niffhtc?" ,  ���������  "Not -ne. vjome arouiiu as wit no  homeland I'll fix it.r You'll' have'a  lovel;^  time."    , r      ���������    ,   t  i ��������� Wjhen, Hills got home to his room  that "evening he. found a little note  from Alice, - which ran thus :���������" Dear  Tom, don't call for me to-night, for  what do you think ? A young .gentleman is going to give me my first les-  ison on a bicycle���������Mr. Joe Purvis, the  brother of one of the girls at our  place. I know you would like me to  learn        Ever your own Alice."  "Well,   that's   a  pretty "cool   thing,"  thought Hills, as he threw himself into  a" chair and re-read it.     What business  had Alice .to be going off with another  young man ?     His sense of proprietorship was disturbed.     It was true that  he was  going  to give  a very  attractive  young  woman  a  lesson   in   bicy-  ������cling.that very evening���������^but then    he,  like  every  other  athletic  young  man,  was a.n expert in 'cycling, and should  be ready' to   give  assistance   to   "ambitious  neophytes  of  either  sex  when  it came in his way to do so.    And who  'was   this   Joe 'Purvis ?> - He   felt   like  smashing his'nose.    Mr. Hills was disturbed.     He looked,, spruce  and  handsome, however, as he took his way to  the rather fashionable  street in which  the Delancourts 'lived.'   ' But he found  three, vyoung- men  there  already  help-,  ing Miss Maud and ���������her friend to keep  on their wheels.     They were men who  were  a match  for him  in  every way,  and  with  a good   deal  more  ease   -of  manner.     Maud,  moreover,    was      decidedly  cool. .- Hills 'went  home   early  in  a  state  of  fuming  irritation.      By  way  of wreaking his  mortification  on  somebody, he sat "down and wrote Alice  a  cutting and   bitter letter.     He  was  so absorbed  in  the  business  of  filling  this full of cruel and  barbed phrases,  and of thinking of the withering effect  it  would  produce  on  Alice,   that,    incredible as it may seem,  he forgot to  put anything except her name on the  outside of the envelope.    Consequently  when he saw her two days afterwards.  \���������  i -  A NURSE'S STORY.  Tells how she was cured of Heart and  Nerve Troubles.  Tbe onerous duties tbat fall to tbe lot of  m, nurse, the worry, care, loss of sleep,  irregularity of meals soon tell on the  nervous system and undermine tbe health.  Mrs. H. L. Menzies, a professional nurse  living at; the Corner of Wellington and  King Streets, Brantford, Ont., states her  '\  ease as follows: " For the past three years  I have suffered from weakness, shortness of  breath and palpitation of the heart.  The least excitement would make my heart  flutter, arid at,night I even found it difficult  to sleep. After I got Milburn's Heart and  Nerve Pills I experienced great relief!  and on continuing their, use the improvement has been marked until now all the old  symptoms are gone and I am completely  'cured."  , Milburn's Heart and Nerve Fills cure -  Anaemia, Nervousness, Weakness, Sleep- \x  lessness,   Palpitation,   Throbbing,   Faint ,,  Spells, Dizziness or any condition aris!ing>'  from   Impoverished,, Blood,    Disordered, ,  Nerves or Weak Heart. ,.*'<���������*  *"~" * v ,  Laxa-Liver PillscleanCoated Tongue.  and she asked  him,  in  qui^te a bright  and piquant way,  " how he liked giving Miss Maud Delancourt bicycle lessons ?" he was durmbfoundad for a moment.  " Didn't you get my letter ?"  " What letter ?    I've  had no letter."  ".Strange.     And    how   did  you  like  your bicycling evening ?"  " Oh,   it  was  lovely."  " And Mr. Joe Purvis is a very nice  young man, I suppose ?"  " He's, lust kind and delightftl."'  Mr. Purley was well off.     He had been I ha.vine  had some success at the High j you."  who enjoyed life to the full herself  arid liked others to,.-, enjoy.'it' too���������one  of those creatures who always have  the loud .pedal down, so to speak, and  .are insensible to diminuendo., hot to  mention piano passages. Alice had to  wait for *some special ribbon and  French ornaments the proprietress  was going to give her, so she could  hot help overhearing the conversation  of the two as they retired for a few  moments to the rear of the shoD to.  wait for an aunt who was coming in  for them.  .,,.," So;, I;f-met you again, to-day with  Mr! 'Hills; I'declare, Maud, that this  *'is becoming serious," said the friend.  ������������������ " Nonsense, you torriienting wretch.  How can one help being polite to one's  friends.?,,.v..Because^ he happened tc  meet me on two days running was 1  to; snub-.him":,?���������������������������< ''  " Snubbing was out of the question,  my dear girl. You could not snub a  haridsome^m'an to'; save your life."  "I could���������I have; scores of.them."  "Oh', you outrageous fibber ! Snub  him to-night,' then, when he comes to  give us that bicycle lesson���������come, I  challenge you."  "I don't'see why I need make myself ���������. unpleasant; to rnv friends just to  please1 you,  you  nasty  thing."  " There !. I knew, how it would be.  Youa,wouldn't snub a handsome young  man like Mr. Hills for the world; besides, I believe you are a little bit  gone on him;  and I am sure he is on  " I think, Miss Puney, you nave no  further use for me, amd we'd better  part."  " In that case," said Alice, losing her  temper, " it's just as well we said nothing about it to poor old Nell. And I  suppose I'd better give you that piece  of the broken plate back that you  gave me last year with such promises ?"  " Just as you like," he replied, gloomily.  By this time they had come to her  door, and they said good-night. They  did not wait till there was nobody  coming, and kiss, as was their wont.  .His . vengetumess was not satisfied.  He went to the post-office and made  enquiries about his "letter to her. Fortunately, as he thought, it had not  yet gone back to-the Dead Letter Office. He completed the address, and  went home rather gloating on the misery that if would cause the young woman.  But the last two evenings had been  as balm to Alice's wounded heart. Mr.  Joe Purvis and the bicycle had prevented her from asking herself whether  of not she could live without Hills.  She had just surrendered herself to the  absorbing wheel, and was full'of'gratitude to the nice young man who had  taught her to ride it. Instead of crying at nights she had come home with,  tired knees and well-oxygenated blood,  and had slept like a beautiful little  statue of the maiden in the arms of  Morpheus.  And then, actually, when she got in  after that curt good-night there Was  Joe Purvis waiting for her. "We can  have quite a spin by the electric light  if you will  come,"  he said.  " All right," said Alice, with a glitter  in her eyes. And. they mounted and  glided away, and the last thing that  Hills saw that nicrht before he got to  his own door was the spectacle of Alice  and Purvis-wheeling along side by sidf  in great style, and looking as happv  and  handsome as  possible. .  .That was the last time he saw her  for many, many months, for soon afterwards he changed his lodgings and  betook himself to his studies with re  doubled vigour.     Alice tore up hlx let  ter.after reading it once.     She.took the*  broken    piece    of    platter    out' of her  trunk,  kissed it, and pitched, it out of  thp window.  " I say Hills,'have you heard that old  Purley is dead," said a fellow student,  as they sat together in the examination  hall previous to the papers"being given  out.       ' *"    .  " No; is that so ?" said Hills, rather  startled.  " Yes," said his friend, who1 came  from the next township, "and cut up  remarkably well I hear; left the girls  $15,000 each. They say 'the little one's  engaged to a man named Purvis, who'  is getting on like a house afire at the  bicycle tiade."   ������ c  Just then the questions were ^ivon  out. The information he had received did not make Hills falter at his  exams. But it formed an undoi current to his thoughts. -, t"  He had no lime, however, fer his  wits to be wool-gathering until after  the exominations.' In the week\of'rest  that followed them he began to think  of Nell. ' His memory brought'up that  scene of the summer evening, when  Fhe,played "Annie Laurie." He remembered with gratification that she  had given many signs that she rather  bked him. If he came out well in thes-*  exams.���������suppose, for instance, he was  a medallist���������he could go back home  with some eclat. Her talk about the ���������  superiority of city young men would  not applj\ What a time it was since  he had been home ! Tender memories  of the place began to weave themselves  in his mind. He felt sure that Nell  w-ould be glad to see him. Dear old  Nell,  what a woman <:he was !  When the results came out Hills  found with exultation that he was indeed the gold medallist. A few days  after came a letter from his father���������a  rare *>vent, for his father was no scribe.  The old man was of course delighted  with his son's succeps. Incidentally  the letter gave a piece of news about  the Purleys. " I suppose you have  heard of old Mr. Purley's' death. He  left the girls well off, a good deal better than folks expected. Alice is to  marry some man in the city. Nell has  rented the farm and gone to England  to see  her dad's relations."  Nell was away a year. She came  back to the old home to arrange some  matters of business the following May.  Soon afterwards Hills made up his  mind to take a holiday and visit the  old spot. In the train down his mind  was full of romantic thoughts. How  delightful the country was after the  ironbound smoky city ! There was  wonderful rejoicing over him at his  own home. In the evening he took  his way to the Purley farm, where he  heard Nell was staying with her tenants. He could not help thinking of  an. evenine Ions: ni?n. n<5. h*> rame. alontr  tne roaa oy Upton's ousn. , it -was just  such an evening as this." As he drew  near the.back of the orchard he saw  a female figure sitting en the old seat.  " Why, Nell !;' he said, joyfully, as  he came up. How handsome she looked ! . How she had developed ! Why  she did not look like the same girl.  " Oh, Mr. Hills, how you startled me,"  she said.     ���������  " Not unpleasantly, I hope, dear, old  Neil ?"  "Don't let us be too sentimental,"  she said. ,  ".But  suppose    I  wish  to  be    sentimental,   suppose   I   am  determined' to   ,  be sentimental ?'*  "There are two very important reasons against it. In the first place, do  you know why- I have come to this,  very place to-night ? It is to throw  away something." She drew from her  bosom a little silken bag and produced  from  it a wee triangle of platter.  "That is a piece of a broken plate,  Mr. Hills. It was broken on the boulder in the orchard. There it goes." And  rising she threw it across into Upton's-  bush. " The second reason, Mr. Hills,  is that I am engaged to be married to  an Englishman."  Warm Water Baptism.

It is evident that the Province  of Quebec rules the Dominion.' She  turned out the Liberal-Conservative government, putting Laurier  and his confreres   in   power;   and  lately by her   overwhelming   vote  against Prohibition she has   nullified the majority of  all   the   other  provinces, making it  so   insignificant, that Laurier's friends say he  is relieved of the duty of   introducing any prohibition measure.   Quebec by voting almost as a unit can  and does obliterate the effect   of   a  divided vote elsewhere,   and   thus  easily maintains   her   position   as  tbe ruling province of the   Eom;n-  ion.    She furnishes the   dominant  political force, and poor old  Onta-  -rio and the rest of the provinces by  their divided action   are impotent  to resist her.
