"I  have  recently gone to the  trouble to make  some inquiries into this matter, and  have been  astounded to find that  not one-fourth of  the bills sent by  doctors are paid with anything like  promptness.    There is a  quickening   of  the conecience:   a  simple  realization of a proper sense of duty   needed   in this   matter.   It is  high time, in the case of c hundreds  of families, that this matter should  be ��������� brought  home to their sense of  fairness and  justice.    And as  yet  with them the doctors have for so  many years been the last to receive  their due in the payment of their  bills, it would be only simple justice that hereafter "the last shall  be first."   No worker in the field of  human industry  deserves better at'  the hands of the people whom he  seryes-than the doctor, and to pay  his fee promptly and  cheerfully is  the least we can do for the service  which he gives us.

[Copyright, 1S9S. by the Author.]  ," 'Now. I propose that you settle this  ' business uy a friendly game of cards.' I  Jon't know your Spanish games, but  you can easily choose some game in  which each man that is beaten goes out  and leaves the others to play. The man  "who finally wins is to take the presi-'  dency, and  the  others are to  agree, to  ��������� support him for, say, two years, at the  end of which they shall be at liberty to  start a revolution if they feel so disposed. You will arrive at the same sort  of result by playing^ a game of cardi  fcbat you will by fighting and raising  Cain for the next year or two, and the  men who lose will only lose their expectations of being president, instead  of losing both their expectations and  their lives. Now, gentlemen, hero,are  the cards.- Will you take my advice and  settle your difference like Christians or  will you fight like barbarians?'  "The presidents listened to my speech  in a very r'espoctf v 1 way, and  when  it  was ended old Almonte, who, as I after- ,  ward   learned,   was   tho  biggest  card  iharp in Torrizonia, said' that   ho  cordially  agreed  with all  his  excellency  the  United   States  minister  had  said  wid that he was'quito ready to play the  other  three  gentlemen  for  the  presidency. Tho other three didn't seem very  'anxious to play, but  first one  of  them  nnd then another said that while he had  " perfect confidence in the  justice of  his  claim   ho  would  adopt  my ' proposal,  feeling certain that the Blessed Virgin  . would see. him through all right.    The  upshot was that   they all  sat down  to  some unearthly Spanish-American  sort  of game that.I never pretended  to understand and presently they were-playing as quietly as  you and I would play  if .we had a little game of draw on hand  '. with unlimited stakes  and  a  straight  flush barred.  "I sat at the end of the tablo smoking  a cigar and saying to, myself that I was  s'born diplomat and had made a splendid beginning as minister to Torrizonia.  Say what* you will  of  the  presidents,  they were, gentlemen  so  far  as  their  , manners went, and nobody  could have  been more polite than they were to one  ' another.  By aud by'olcl Almonte smiled  ���������sweetly to Garcia aud  remarked  that,  inasmuch as Garcia had revoked or done  c- -something  equivalent  to  revoking, he  was beaten and must consider  himself  /���������out of the game.  "I never in all my  life, 'saw;, a  man  ��������� pull his gun quicker than Garcia pulled  his, but, quick as he was, he had got in  ���������only one shoe when all the other three"  prepidents were 0:1 their feet and blaz-'  .ing away promiscuously at one another.  -Naturally I dropped under the table, for-  "ibSvoukl have been contrary to diplomatic etiquette for me to take a hand  in the shooting. All the same I hated  to be o;:t of ifc, for it was ono of tbe  liveliest difficulties I ever struck. It  didn't last over four or fivo minutes,  and by tho end of that time all four of  the six shooters wero empty, aud all  four presidents were lying ou the floor.  Then 1 got up and called the landlord,  and after we had found that nobody was  killed���������though every man had from two  to five bullets in him���������I called up the  marine!:," aud they carried tho presidents  to the hospital in a sort of procession.  "My Little plan for settling the presidential dispute hadn't panned out quite  as I expected, but ifc wasn't my fault. 1  Eaw Dr. Moreno after ho had examined  the wounded men, and he told me that  they would all recover, though they  would probably have to remain iu the  hospital for several weeks. He'.said that  the government would ba carried on in  tho name of President Almonte, the chap  whochadoccupied the presidential mansion, until such time a3 all the four  claimants wero discharged from the  hospital.  " '1 shall take tho host of care of  them and main tain a strict neutrality,'  said tho doctor, 'and 1 shall recommend  you to do the same hereafter. You've  tried to arrange things without bloodshed, and you'vo failed, and now your  best plan is to let those four fellows  fight their quarrel out according to the  laws aud customs of Torrizonia.' ;  "The four presidents lay in the hospital exactly six weeks.    None of them  was severely wounded, and they might  ���������all have been discharged after ten days  or a fortnight, but the doctor said that  not a man should stir until his wound  had entirely healed. I went to see the  presidents every day and got to be quite  friendly with the whole gang of them.  I found out by their own confessions  that each man was bribing lhe doctor  to keep the others in the hospital. irou  see that if one of the presidents could  have got out of the hospital a day or  t%vo in advance of the   others he would  a  free 'field and could have  presidency without any op-  havo  had  seized   the  position.  "According   to  their  account, those  four men must havo paid the  doctor an  average  of  $1,000 each in   bribes, and  each  one   thought that he was  getting  his money's worth and stealing a march  on his rivals.  The'doctor, being a practical man, took all the money that was  offered   him  and earned it honestly by  keeping the men in tho hospital.   Whenever oue of  the  presidents complained  that ho was  bejng^kept in  longer than  was  necessary  the  doctor   would   toll  him that  there wero certain  complications in his case that made it necessary  for him to  remain in   bed a short time  longer, but at  tho same time  he promised that under no circumstances would  he allow any one of  his rivals to leave  the hospital in advance of him.  "Being   'Spanish-American, 'with  a  uative talent for lying in bed, and feeling sure that the doctor would keep his  word about not letting any of the other  men   out, of  hospital   too  early,<- each  president was  middling  well  satisfied  with tho way things shaped themselves.  They were all so sure of the presidency  that   they r constantly   bothered  me  to  recognize   them  then ' and pthere, but 1  always  put  them"off  by saying that I  had written   home for instructions'and  felt  sure   that  my government  would  direct  me  to  recognize the best' man.  Every one of the four told me confidently that  he was ,to'be  discharged three  Itays before any of the others  aud that  he expected to seize the presidency and  6hoot his  rivals the moment they came  Jut of the hospital.       r ,  "About six weeks after my dinner  party I was waked up one morning by  the souud of rifles. I heard what was  clearly a volley fired somewhere'- near  the hotel, followed by three or four  single shots*. Then I heard the noise cf  heavy wooden shutters being closed in  a hurry, and I knew that a revolution  or a riot had broken out.    I got up and  dressed and was going out to see who*  Was to bo seen,- but  i   found   the front  door locked and barred and was obliged  to hunt up the 'landlord and ask'him  for information. He hadn't tell  me, except that there had been a .revolution and that Dr.'Moreno had installed  himself in the presidential mansion and  had placarded'the town with proclamations saying that he had resolved to put  an end to tlie era of revolutions in Torrizonia aud to give the people peace and  security.  "The landlord said that the revolution had opened at precisely 11 o'clock  in the evening and that there had been  no resistance to Moreno, who had already received the submission of all the  troops belonging to the four presidents.  I was a little astonished to hear the  news, for the doctor was the last man  in Torrizonia whom I would have suspected of taking part in politics. However, he was a very popular man, and I  was, on the whole, glad to remember  that ha had all his rivals safe in the  hospital and could threaten them with  amputation of tho legs if they didn't  submit to him and withdraw their  claims to the presidency.  " 'Have yon heard,' said I to the  landlord, 'whether tho new president  has made any arrangements with,, the  presidents in the hospital?'    ���������  'Certainly he  has,'said  the iand-  'Didn't you hear tho rifle shots a  lictlo while ago?'  " 'Of course I did,' said I, 'but what  had that to do with the four presidents?'  " 'Only this,' replied the landlord.  'President Moreno discharged them  from    the   .hospital   at   ?   o'clock   this  ever met in Central America, and he  held, on to his office for nearly eight  years before he was assassinated by the  general in chief of the ariny. I was  sorry when he was killed, for I like a  man who understands practical politics,  and, while I don't deny that he must  have disappointed tho four presidents  considerably, he did what was the only  thing for a practical politician to do."

I'll   bet  said the boy   who  lord  morning, stood them up against the  front wall and had them shot fivo minutes after they were discharged.

Nicholson, of the Manor House, Winnipeg, Man., relates the following startling facts: "For a long time I was troubled with Eczema on my ears, and for several  weeks I doctored with a prominent Winnipeg doctor to no avail. I was induced by a  friend who had been cured by Dr. Chase's Ointment to give it a trial. The first application gave instant relief, and before using all of one box I was completely cured, and have  had no return of the horrible disease."  For itching skin diseases Dr. Chase's Ointment has no equal in the whole world. It  stands alone as the one absolute cure for Eczema, Salt Rheum and Piles, and has never  failed to cure these torturing diseases.  If you are not convinced of the wonderful merit of Dr. Chase's Ointment by such  eyidence as is published from time to time in this paper nothing short of a trial will convince you.

He asks people to do wjhat is hard  and unattractive,   aud^  promises   thgrn a  cain which is spiritual   and^ unseen:    It  lies upon tlie hearer to verify this   commandment for   himself,   and"'to find'out  whether   serving   others,   arid   not one's  self, does make one happier and stronger.

CALLE SAN GIORGIO,  KOalle San Giorgio is, dark, dirty, and  jowded.    Not a cheerful home to any  tit a true born Venetian/     Strangers  liow the calle very well, for it is a short'  to the great Hotel Verona. The niore  ^servant of these might have noticed a  de face, framed in glorious Titian hair,  lone of ,the windows, and might have  fought it  like  a  beautiful  Bellini for  urity ,of outline.   They could not guess  lit "La Princess," as her girl compan  |ns called her, was a deformed dwarf  ith this lovely head "set 4ncongruouslj  Ween crooked, shoulders hidden by the  fpiirog glory of hair.    Up there, in the  ������ble dressmaker's  little dingy  room,  e   Princess  sewed   all   day,   and   told  [c wonderful stories by which she had  on her name. -  For this little Venetian maiden of sev-  nteen, whose hold on her maimed life  jis so fragile, lived in a world of her  >wn,-peopled with kings and queens, and,  hove all, princes.    She believed nearlj  devoutly in magic as in tlie saints, and  jaid   her  prayers   more  particularly   to  iin  Giorgio,  who flamed gorgeous    in  [urling hair and glittering armor in a cer-  Lin stained-glass window that threw a  ransparent treasure of precious stones  ,n the floor of her favorite church.  For a long time past La Princess had  Seen too ill to go to church.,   In    the  Winter ehe had coughed  all night, and  Ht her slender hands to her aide to try  ease the dull pain./ But she had told  er stories in her poor,, husky voiced be-  nise .the others bo "entreated  her,  till  e workers had forgotten their, cold and  ' she'took them away into en-  haiited gardens "full of great roses and  all, holy, white lilies,',' though poverty is  ery cruel' in Venice.  At last the, cold vanished and spring  me back.   Spring.steals into Venice in  ome subtle, sweet disguise, like a highborn beauty in a mask..    There are no  riraroses  to  unlock, her  delights  with  ieir  keys, of heaven,  no orchestra  of  jnrds,  no pageant of tender,  unfolding  eaves.    What an  English tender poet'  ailed  "acgrecn sky's minor thirds," a  mething tnveet as first love" in the genie   air���������these  are  the  only 'signs  that  l-ake" Venice from the weary  lethargy  of the winter for which she is all unfit-  vted, into the triumph of her days of molten gold and nights of silver.  La Princessa ceased to pough, -but the  languid warmth made her very tired. She  lay awake atchights, hearing. Sail Marco  toll the hours away in its' rich, full voice,  fcaiid  sometimes she crossed herself and  tprayed  for pardon because she did not  tell  her-beads, but was always walking  ,^with the Prince in that wonderful garden of her fancies.  She Dreamland, and the girls  j, would listen in wonder when she told of  I the strange visions that came with the  night. * April was sweet and balmy that  year, but La Princessa could not go out  to stroll in the calle, far les9 in the Pi-  ft azza, where tbe lights, the music, and (ill  ^the joy and splendor are as much for the  (i>oorest beggar as for the richest of the  forestieri.    St. Mark's Dve came at last,  and that morning, of all the girls in Calle  San Giorgio,' La Princessa was the only-  one  whose  heart did not beat  at    the  thought.    She alone was-sure; she had  no doubts.    For every Venetian knows  that  on this night all true    lovers    go-  abroad and fling a rosebud, as a sign, up  to the window of the chosen.    Many a  girl, full of hopes and fears, waits for  San Marco with a longing that is half  i l fear.  "Poverina, for yoni ��������� there can never be  a lover," said handsome Giulia to the  Prin cipessa.  The   child's   eyes   grew   dreamy.     "I  have my Prince.    Surely, surely, he will  come to me.    Then we shall go to the  green, green garden, and rest always."  i������        "She is mad," whispered another; but  ',     Giulia,  who  was very sad,  said  softly,  [}   "Hush! Let her take  comfort,   and  let  "/   us pray the holy saints to keep her hap-  ;i   py.    I myself offered  a candle  to San  Giorgio in her intention.    He is a fine  saint, and I think he heard."  "Pray for yo-urself,-.tather.    There is  fJP- a Biohdina  in  Calle" san  Moise.. They  say Giovanni is under the balcony each  night."  Giulia sighed, but the little Prineipessa went on with her story���������how the highborn ladies danced in their silks and sat-  [^  ins, and how the Prince passed by them  *U to go away into the city to .choose  % the t simply,  lowly maiden  in  her white  'robe.    "It was the Eve of San  Marco,  ||   nnd when night fell the Prince stood under her  window  and   sang - a   heavenly  song,  and he flung the red rosebud  at  the   maiden's   feet,   and   afterwards   he  would have put the crown on her golden  hair, but she would have none of it; only  If) the red rosebud blazed there as a tho-  phy."   The voice of La Prineipessa grew  very  weak.     She stopped short  at this  ft   point and fell back fainting.  |f      They laid her on the bed, and the room  seemed very quiet for a while.    The pa-  drona, who was aunt to La Prineipessa,  grumbled, because she wanted to go out  in the Piazza that night.  "Someone must see to this sick dream-  Jji er," she said sourly.    "As for you girls,  on San Marco your foolish heads are too  full  of loyers and    roses  to remember I  Christian charity  me watch with her."  The others laughed. "What, Guilia?  rTkere will be buds in plenty on your bal:  cony. Let Giovanni go his stupid ways.  There are half a dozen gondolieri ready  to take his place."  But Guilia was firm, and when the  ' evening camp she knelt, weeping passionate fears, beside La' Prineipessa,' who  smiled in her sleep as if sweet visions  kept her cpmpany. "Holy Mother of  pity. let me die instead of her. She is  happy with her fairy Prince. I cannot  live" without Giovanni."  Meanwhile, in a great, bare room in an  old palazo, an English artist, very  young, tall, and fair, sat at supper with  an  Italian friend.  "If you have any fancy for, a pretty  mode] or a pretty signorina, amico, now  is your time," said the Italian. "Tonight is the Eve of San Marco. Every  girl in Venice is on her balcony, waiting for her lovers to throw rosebuds at  her feet. It is allowed. How else should  they know we love them. As dfor me, I  shall sing, 'La donna e mobile,' so false  is mine to me."  "Estrange had been in Venice three  months���������long enough to���������want to be there  for ever. He was only two-and-twenty.  and the magic had wrought strongly on  a temperament naturally very plastic. He  had not painted much, but he thought  and ripened in wonder of it all. And  now spring was coming, and it beat in  , every pulse.  "I am only in love with Venice herself.  I would throw my roses into the Adriatic, as the Doge did his ring, and marry  Lei, if it were possible."  -With such a 'voice as yours, I would  find something more human, more tender, than' stony Venice. ' Well, goodnight. I am going. She may be fickle���������  they��������� but she is certainly fair.  A riverderla."  Hubert L'Estrange had thought himself heartbroken when he came to, Venice. In three months she had healed  him with her beauty, her silence. The  fret and fever of noisy life was but a  mere "jarring memory here, among the  exquisite pictured i^J^nnas who seem  in, their spiritual lovehaess 'to surpass  all living realities.  To-night a faint, far-off touch of the  old pain came back. He would have  none of it. He would force it aside. It  waB late now, almost midnight, hut he  would go out, and Bee if Fate had any  sweet surprises left.  Boyishly "theatrical, he put on a cloak  and wide hat. "The mandolin, too, to  make it complete." He took no gondola, though the moon lay full on the  "Grand' Canal;-and- all - the'-RlT������.--wiL8 -a.  wide coast of shimmering silver. He  loitered from street to c- street, always  with lighted windows and dark forms  beneath them, often with music. Always  the same words "BuUte sul balcon e da  me un segno."  It was so late that when he reached  gone out to the Piazza, where.the great  band was giving the "Faust" ��������� music significantly. One window, with a narrow,  rickety balcony, was curtained and closed. Hubert L'Estrange could not have  explained why it interested him; but he  paused under it.  Within, La Prineipessa was awake,  yet wandering in her dream world, only  with so changed a face that Guilia prayed beside her, "Holy San Giorgio, succor us both. Make her pathway to Paradise, easy, and give me back Giovanni  niio." ���������  ' He wanted to know why the window  iwas closed, and then it struck him as  woTth while to try to open it. He did  not know any Italian songs that suited,  so, with enough0of the past in his soft  tenor voice to give it tenderness, he sung  a little song that had brought no fame to  either poet or musician, but might have  fluttered from the book of Heine  My love like a flower grew,  And my heart waxed bold,  Love died, as the flowers do,  And my heart waned old.  I buried my hope one dixy  In bitter pride.  There is only a song to say  Love lived and died.  The Prineipessa heard, and heard with  no wonder.  "Listen, Guilia. You must help me to  the balcony. It is he; it is the Prince.  He has brought me my red rosebud. He  sings in a strange language; but I knew  he would not fail.   My love, my Prince!"  With a strength that to Guilia seemed  miraculous, the dying girl walked feebly  to tho window. Giulia flung a shawl over  her, but she was all unconscious. When  she looked down he was there���������her  Prince, tall and fair and noble. L'Ecs-  trange only saw the wild pale face, the  glory of hair.  Kind San Giorgio had pity. He had  given the deformed child this hour of  transport, of a happiness beyound reality. Giulia, hidden behind the curtain,  in her youth and beauty, sorrowed. This  miserable daughter of poverty and p.'iin  was crowned indeed a princess in this  supreme moment.  For L'Estrange, struck by the expression of the great, deep eyes, liquid in the  moonlight, threw up a rosebud. "Bella,  min, butite sul balcon e da me un segno."  Bound her neck hung a tiny, trumpery  Then' Gu.Uia   stepped    forward.    "Let      heart o;f glass and. Lnlding,    She tore it  off, and h? caught it as it felj, Then  suddenly the window was shut, and he  stood alone in the moonlight, with a little tawdry toy in his hand.  "What a face! What eyes! I swear  she loved me. No woman can look like  that without loving. Yet, after all, she  must have mistaken me for someone else-  Happy someone." , L'Estrange sang  again, "Drink to nie .only with thine  eyes."    But there was no answer.  "A white rose, not red," murmured La  Prineipessa from her bed. "For heaven,  not for earth. What matters? ' My  Prince came; he will come again in the  gardens of Paradise, where the holy  white lilies are tall as trees, and the  roses never fade. I shall, sleep now,  Giulia.    Wake me to-morrow."  But when to-morrow came she' lay  there, cold and smiling, with the rosebud on her heart, and did not heed their  voices.  ' L'Estrange 0 never knew the truth.  When San Marco dawned, for him it  brought a peremptory summons to England. Fortune had come to fetch him,  and yet he'was scarcely glad.  A year later there was a murmur  among the few people who, strolling  about the crowded rooms- of Burlington  House at the Private View, looked for,  but rarely find, a real picture. , 'A new  , man���������L'Estrange. 'On the Eve of San  Marco.' Oh, a serenade. But what a  face! What eyes!' What hair! One  would like the address of that model."  "There's a future for this young L'Estrange," said the greatest critic of all,  ���������'There's, a poem in the picture for me,"  Calle San Giorgio most ot the happy  girls had answered their signallers and  said a poet to himself.   Both were right.  MW^ffHUtf^prBianinMip  COURTENAY  Directory.  COURTENAY HOUSE,   A.   H.   McCallum, Proprietor. *    c  GEORGE   B.   LEIGH-TON,     Black  smith and Carriage Maker.

O SEA BOY/'  By JOHB" J. A'BEOKET.  [Copyright, lS9f), by the Author.]  Once npon a time (not half as long  ago as that phrase makes it sound) a  small boy lived in an elephant. Even an  infant elephant is large enongh to hold  a colony of   small boys.    The fact that  this small boy lived in the   elephant is  proof enough that he had not been eaten up by him.   This elephant was literally the biggest elephant on earth.    He  stood on the seashore for 15 years looking at the Atlantic ocean.  He had nev*r  stirred a foot since he took his majestic  pose* on a flat  sandy land.    He was  so  near the shore that in very violent winter storms the irritated sea came swooping through the air and flung itself  in  wet, salt; spray right on his benign old  ������ face.    But he was blinder than a bat.  The   reason of  this?   Why, the elephant was of wood and plaster and had  a skin of tin, painted mouse color.    Ho  was a summer hotrl, this elephant was,  and as  ho cost   his owner  nothing for  his "feed"  yon would  (suppose he was  an. inexpensive animal.  Don't think it.    He cost over $50,000 '  and was a bad speculation.  People could  see him "without paying anything, and  when you were inside of him there was  no knowing that he was an elephant at  all.    So  they  just  stood  outside  and  ' looked  at  the   groat,  still  thing,  and  laughed  and  jingled  their  change  in  their  pockets.,   It  didn't cost them  a  cent to do this.  But naturally the owner of  the elephant didn't  take  in any  money   from   this   admiration   of   the  ,   monster, who was  fully 75  feet- high  and 100 feet long.    As a  result, he  let  the animal go for a nominal price for a  seaside hotel.  <-        The lady who scrubbed the floors  in  the hotel 'and  toiled   in other  humble  ways to keep it sweet and cleantook up  <;*-  residence in.the poor deserted elephgnt.  She had,two young. children, 3   and   5  years old respectively, Tommy and Eily.-  Tommy was  the   elder.    Although sIig  had "these two children to bring up and  no husband to help her-do it, she adopted "Sea Boy," and,, that brings in the  small  boy   who   lived  in  an elephant  mentioned  in   the   beginning "of   this  story.  It  seems  strange- that  a scrubbing  widow lady who had two small mouths  to feed should want to feed a third one.  when it meant  so much more  pain for  her tired back.    But she  had  a heart.  One winter   night there was a terrible  storm, and a small schooner was driven  on to the   long, sandy point which  ran  out  into the   sea for a  great  distance  , under the water.    The sailors were all  saved except one   short, thickset' man,  who was washed   ashore dead.    An icy  cold, bright  faced  hoy about 10   years  old  was  washed   in   alive,   but   blue  ���������enough to put in a wash boiler on Mon-  -day morning.    The short man was the  "boy's father, and he had  no other kin.  So they were going  to send him to the  place where poor orphans go who have  nobody   to   care   for   them   (what   the  name of it was I don't "know, but that  ���������doesn't   matter), when ��������� Mr.';.   Garrity's  heart spoke.    She always listened to it  respectfully.    It said this time:  ' 'Take  him in.    The ocean rolled him to you.  Let him have a. another's  love  and  n  home even if the home is an elephant.''  , So Mrs. Garrity did what   her heart  told hor-to, and. the ocean waif became  as one of her own.    Ho took to the elephant as a duck does to water.   He was  a keen witted'lad and as industrious as  an ant.    He blacked shoes, sold  papers  and  picked up odd  jobs.     In  a   little  while Mrs. Garrity found that in place  of  the  Sea Boy being a burden and; an  expense he helped to lighten-the'money.'  strain on her.   He not only paid for his  own keep, but  he'-.".-helped support the  two small Garritys,and. Mrs. Garrity's  back was no more strained than it had  been before. ' ,  Somebody started calling this adopted-boy of hers the "Sea Boy," to distinguish him from the others, and finally eveiybody called him "Sea BojT, " till  it came to bo his name.  Sea Boy got to love the dear old elephant in whose right shoulder he slept  with little Tommy Garrity. There was  a big window in it. The elephant had  windows on both of his sides and on his  chest, as  if  he   had  broken  ottt with  ' them as children do with a rash.  In the  summer  the   sea   air  blew in   to   cool  them, and  they could   hear  the water  break with a soft booming on the shore  and then rattle  over the   pebbles  as it  was sucked   back  again.    At night the  broad water would  be  covered with  a  violet   pall, with   lights afar off which  looked like golden pins   that   held it in  place.  Or else there would be a lustrous  sheen on it, and a great  corduroy road  of silver braid led off to the horizon and  went into the sky there, so the children  thought.  And after the two youngsters  were   sound'  asleep   the  moon  would  sometimes peep in through the window  and   light  up   their  small round faces  lying upturned on  the pillow and seem  to say. "Bless 'em. "  They were a happy group, the elephant, who had lost his owner; Mrs.  Garrity, who had lost Mr. Garrity;  Sea Boy, who had lost everything, and  the two small Garritys, who had never  lost anything that they know of. But  their turn came.  Sea Boy hadn't been with the Garritys  more than a j'ear and a half when Mrs.  Garrity woke up one .night with a pain  in her heart, gave a deep groan and  called, "Soa Boy!"  He woke ux> at once and hurried into  her small room. She was suffering so  sho couldn't speak. She knew what it  meant and was trying her beet to tell  Sea Boy to look after the children. But  she couldn't get the words out, and as  Sea Boy helped her to sit up, that- she  might breathe easier, her heart gave a  jump as if it was trying to leap out of  her body and she sank back���������dead.  There was no need to tell, Sea Boy to  look after the children. He had no  thought of anything else. When somebody said that they had better be sent1  to their uncle in Brooklyn, and,,, if he  wouldn't take them, why, to'an orphan  asylum, the way Sea Boy, kicked against  any such arrangement was beautiful  They all wanted to stay- on in their  home in the grim old elephant and have  the sea air and the beach to play on  and the beautiful ocean to wade in.  "Mother'n me run the place, 'n I k'n  take care ov 'ein," he said, with an air  of surprise that this wasn't as obvious  to them all as it was to him.  Everybody did think so when Sea Boy  said it. He was looked on with even  more respect by the community after he  became a family man. .He made more  money too. Shoe blacking "looked up,''  and it was a common thing for a man  to give him a nickel when he bought a  paper and say, "Keep- the change, Sea  ���������Boy." ' , ���������-,  When the children found their mother was to be put in a hole in the ground,  they were visibly distressed.   It,did noi  seem .anything   like  the   comfortable  hprrie in   the elephant.    There were,ho  windows in the earth   cell   and no air,  and^to put her in* and "then" shovel 'threb  . feet of dirt on'her'seemed an unsympathetic proceeding."  They gazed with distrust at tho men with the spades..   Sea  Boy didn't know whether ho should protest  or  not.    He  looked at the' priest,  who looked at him and at the little boy  ���������and  girl . snuggling   timidly up   to his  side, and when Sea Boy noticed what a  swc;ct smile  came  on the  priest's face  and that his eyes filled with water (they  all loved the water, so that it was a bond  of confidence between them, that brimming tear in the priest's eye), why, the  boy father of the motherless felt it was  all right.  "Children," said the -'..priest gently,  ��������� "your mother is asleep, and this earth  isn't going to trouble her. Sho will  sleep there awhile, and then God will  say, 'Get; up, rny child,' and she and  all tho people here said 'Good night' to  God before they fell into this long sleep,  and will come out of their warm, quiet  graves perfectly well and sound and  will go to heaven. We will fall asleep  like that some time, and we will all  wake up together rested and be happy.  For God is going to wake us all up at  the same time."  "Won't she have any pains in her  back then ?" asked Sea Eoy. The earth  looked cold and damp.  "No. . She will never have an}^ pain  again," said the priest warmly. "And,  Sea Boy, you must come to catechism,  and bring the children, so that they  may learn what they have to do in order to say that 'good night' to God all  right. Then they will hear his 'good  morning' all right when the time comes  for him to call us all."  -fcVi Boy said tJiat he won::., an ���������i, oi  course, having promised, to, he did.  Their teacher told them that the rising  up of the dead was called the resurrection, and that the Son of God had died  and risen again to show people ��������� that it  was all right, and that since he could  raise himself from the dead of course  he could raise the rest of dead mankind.

The other day one of the  students broke a pane of glass in the  studio window and replaced it temporarily by pasting a sheet of paper  over the aperture.  When -' the painter came down the  next morning, he thrust his cane  through the makeshift with the remark,  "He that breaks pays." None of the  class, however, took the hint, and next  morning another sheet of paper was  pasted across the window. It met  with the same fate. And- so on the  next,day, and so on the fourth.  On the fifth day when the artist  came down there was the paper as  before. Fire flashed from his eyes,  and roaring "He that breaks pays!"  he drove his cane through the paper���������  and through the pane of glass behind  it that had been put in by the students  and then carefully pasted over with a  sheet of paper.���������-London Telegraph.

Permanent  Cure of Cancer*  Some twelve years  ago Mrs. Elizabeth  Gilhula, wife of the  postmaster of Buxton, Ont., was taken  ill with an obscure  stomach trouble  which her physicians pronounced  cancer of the stomach and informed  her that her lease of  life would be short.

The results that followed  were little' short of marvellous. , Her  strength and vigor returned and in a fchort  time she was completely cured. Mrs.  Gilhula'is to-day in the full enjoyment ot  good health, and in all these years there has  not been the slightest return of the trouble.  Here is the letter Mrs. Gilhula wrote at  the time of herfiure :  "About four years ago I was taken sick  with stomach trouble and consulted several  of the leading- physicians here, all of whom  pronounced the disease to be cancer of the  stomach of an incurable nature, and told  me that it was hardly to be expected that  I could live long. Afterward the two doctors  who were attending1 me gave trie up to die.  " By the advice of some of my friends,  who kne/w of the virtues of Burdock Blood  Bitters", I was induced ,to try it, and I am  now happy to say that after using part of  the first bottle I felt so much better I was  able to get up. I am thankful to state that  I am completely cured of the disease by the  use of B. B.B., although it had baffled the  doctors for a long time. I am firmly convinced that Burdock Blood Bitters saved  my life."  Here is the letter received from her a short  time ago :  " I am still in good health. I thank  Burdock Blood Bitters for saving my life  twelve years ago, and highly recommend  it to other sufferers from stomach troubles  of any kind." Elizabeth Gilhula.

We have,  ,��������� however, in Quinine Wine, when  obtainable in a sound,   unadulterated   state,   a  remedy for many and grievous 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 despondency and lack of interest in life  is a  disease, and, by ���������, tranquilizing   t.he  nerves,  disposes to sound and  refreshing  sleepr-  imparts vigor oo the aotion of the  blood,  which, being stimulated, courses throughout tha-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.

Some diversity, of opinion has existed  among physiologists as to thepbysioios:  ical signification of eating salt. According to Bunge, the use of sodium  chloride with food is to counteract tho  < effects of the potassium salts predominating, especially ��������� in vegetable diet,  while other physiologists regard salt  purely in the nature of a condiment  with no special action. M. Leon Fr'ed-  ericq, writing in the Bulletin dei'Acad-  emio Royale de Belgique, describes his  observations on certain salts ussd' hy  the natives of tho Kongo State.  These salts are produced by the incineration of aquatic plants and are  placed on the market in the form of  cakes produced by evaporation of the  solution formed by dissolving the residue. An analysis shows them to consist  almost entirely of chloride and sulph-ita  of potassium, tbe former largely preponderating and the presence of sodium  being only detectable by the spectroscope. The fact that salts of potassium  are thus used for cooking purposes  seems to negative the views of Bnugo  and to support the opinion, previously  advanced by Lapicqu'e, that the uso of  salt is primarily to improve the flavor  of food.���������Scientific American.  ,;     -It Didn't Matter.  - ^ A bluff old farmer 'with a ��������� loud  voice got" in' at a little station and  Walked down the,, aisle looking for a  friendly face or a kindly eye, but not  seeing iiuy he asked the most sour  looking man on the car to' move over  and give him a seat.

A VANCOUVER OPINION.  What a   Critic    of    the Terminal   City  Thinks of the Boston Lyric Co.  Tho thentre-goftrs of this city are just  beginning to reallac that the Boston Lyric  Opera Company is a really first-class ag-  sresration, end It is a long time since so  captible an organization has been in Vancouver far a week's engagement, says the Vancouver Province. Following the production  of '.-Sail* Pasha," W. Vincent Wallace's op-.  era ' "Maritana" was the bill last night.  Jn this tlie principal parts were ably taken  by Miss Josephine Staunton in the title  role, Miss Maud Leekley and Messrs. Ilenry  Hallam, Lovette Rockwell, Eugene Rogers  and Alex. Joel. The opera was well presented, despite a somewhat wholesale "' -lilting" of some of the most, beautiful r-r i|<e  tenor solos. The omission of the m Real  gem "Ah Maritana" in the last tic. was  much regretted' by those familiar v (ii the  score. ' However, the whole was1 vr creditable, and the large house presei-: was in  a most appreciative mood, demanding the  repeating of many of the choice selections  in the second and last acts:  o  ' Miss Staunton's sweet soprano voice was  heard to advantage in the part of Maritana,  aud Mr. nallam's clear, robust tenor and  swaggering, easy acting were well suited to  the part of the dashing, creditor-harassed  Don Caesar de Bnznu. In Mr. Alex. Joel  the company has a basso voice of more than  usual power and sweetness. Miss Leekley's  cultivated contralto voice was .'In perfect  form, and she scored a great success with  the audience, which could not hear enough  of her spendldly-given solos. The comedian of the opera Is the noble Marquis de  Morteflorl, and the part was 'perfectly Interpreted by Mr. John Henderson, well  known to many Vanconverites as an old  Belleville, Ont., boy.

SATURDAY,   OCT.,'l4th,    1899,  gome individuals seem to imagine, that  a   newspaper ^exists   in  email towns just to taffy  them up  (whether   they ' deserve it or  not)  and that the Editor mustn't dare  comment on   any matter without  first  consulting  them.   Now,   we  ,  beg to. state that'tlie  News is here  , to, deal with public questions, according to its humble lights, and if  t -ere is any matter of public interest (such as referred to last issue)  to be, commented on,  it is going to  ���������be mentioned.'   We would like to  ask our readers what sort of a news-  . paper they would have to put up  with if we were obliged to take every, Tom, Dick and Harry's advice  about; the way   to ruu   it?   The  ..

We Canadians, while we have reas  oo^ justly proud of those other  races, to. which we may belong,  must acknowledge that to Britain  %e have much to be grateful .for.  We have a fuller measuie of true  liberty than perhaps any foreign  country.

From the Atlantic to the Pacific,  life and property are safeguarded  by just laws, 'Our.

Mr. Sydney C.   D.   Roper   has  been doing good service by treating  of Canada's  wheat   lands   in   the  Popular   Science    Monthly.      He  has been led to do this by'  the   erroneous statements put forward by  Sir William Crookes ' as to the area  available in the Dominion for   the  growth of wheat.    Sir William was  not disposed to credit Canada with  possessing   more   than   12,000,000  acres of available  wheat lands, but  Mr. Roper shows  that we have upwards of 75,000,000 ��������� acres   which  can be properly so  classed without  taking into account  isolated  areas  scattered all over the  several provinces.      In making up his estimate  Sir William Crookes was influenced  to some extent by the- calculations  of Mr. C. Wood Davis  of. Kansas..  Mr. Davis has been a very voluminous writer on  this   question.      He  treated of it first   in   the   Country  Gentleman and afterwards  in  several of the magazines and   review?.  He has always   contended that the  United States would  shortly  cease  to export   wheat.    He, has   never  been disposed' to   believe   in   the  grain producing capability of Can ���������  ada.   Several years ago   the,' present editor of the Colonist at the re-  qnest of the Century Magazine prepared a statement of Canada's possibilities in this respect..    Mr. Dav-  wrote to say   that   the   statements  made regarding the Dominion were  a revelation to him, but he did hot  seem disposed to accept   them,   al  though he ,was   courteous   enough  not to state so in as ��������� many   words.  The chief statistician of the United  States Department   of   agriculture  took great exception to  the   estimates, and for some time the   editor  of the Century was in doubt as   to  whether he ought to print the article.    He did S3, however, but   was  careful' to   mention   that   it   was  from a Canadian   standpoint   and  in a footnote promised that the department of agriculture would prepare a reply.   . The reason why the  article was dealt with in this   way  was because it pointed out that   after   a   comparatively   short   time.  Canada would be the  great American source of wheat supply  so   far  as exports to Europe are. concerned  and that the United   States   might  become an importer   of   Canadian  wheat.     The   promised reply  has  not yet'been published.  This matter is mentioned to  show that the disposition to minimize the wheat-producing capacity  of Canada is no new thing. Mr.  Roper's paper on the subject is statistically the most valuable one  that has yet been printed.���������Colonist:  ���������By. Direct;���������'  I importation m  "A.
