Concenia, is spending' a few  days with Mrs, Ray.and Miss Rushworih  Rev. Mr. Dodds of Cumberland  preached here last Sunday evening to a  large congregation.  Rev. Mr. Goodwill froro Eastern Can-  ada is attending to the Presbyterian mis-  , r  sion work; here.  Mr. MeDonagh, formerly with Lawyer"  Eckstein, is now in.  charge of the  Light  . House near De������man Island.  ,  There is a rumor that another .barge is  to be built for the transport of coke which  can'be taken acrossthe gulf in shorter  timethan the one in present use.  Miss Palby, teacher at Union Wharf  school has sent in her resignation to take  effect at the end of next month. Miss  Dalby has proved a very efficient and  amiable teacher and her going away is  much regretted.  Wednesday morning there was a dense  fog here, owing to jvhich the shore could  not be seen and, the tug which towed  over Transfer No.i from Vancouver, r in  ashore, but succeeded with some difficulty in~ getting off without any apparent  damage.  The large smoke stack at the east end  of the row of joo coke ovens is down. It  . got shaky and with a little friendly help  lottered to its, tall. The ovens seem to  beburmngjust as-well, and look brighter  as~the flames come up through the uncovered tops. One noticeable thing is  that a short while ago every place about  the works was piled up with coke,  but now there is very little ������fit to be  seen, although the ovens appear to be  turning out coke to their full capacity.  This gives promise that work on the  second hundred will soon be recommenced.  The new Wilson   House is already occupied by its landlord,  Mr. John   Humphreys, lately of Nanaimo, although  it  has not yet been opened   to   the public.  It is well worth  inspection, and  as the  writer went through it, noting its arrange  ments he was  surprised  to find  here at  Union  Wharf   a   hotel   with   as   many  modern conveniences as any in Nanaimo  ���������the best there.    Its drains  lead  into  the deep  water of  the  gulf,   and   good  fresh water is taken  from  a high  point  <ir.d conducted all through   the building.  The house is  lighted by acetyline  gas,  the   plant    for .which   was   put   in,  as  indeed was the piping, by R.   B.  Ander  son, known in Cumberland, as the 'Little  Wizard abound   the   corner,"   The  bar  fixtures   are very   elaborate,   and   wore  brought up from Nanaimo.  AUCTION.  NOTICE.

Every precaution is being taken to prevent the spread of the disease., Captain  Abercrombie of the government expedU  tion has 25 destitute men on his hands at  Valdez. Many lives are reported to have  been lost among those who were in .(he.  interior and struggling1 to reach the  coast. The, last party to cross the glacier lost two men. One broke through ihe  crust of snow and disappeared." He is  supposed to have fallen into a crevice  while the other- slipped and slid in a  chasm hundreds of feet deep, where it  was impossible to render assistance.  ATTEMPTED TRAIN WRECKING.  Brockville, Ont    20.���������A  fiendish   attempt at train wrecking  took   place  on  Tuesday evening on the Grand  Trunk  Railway a short distance west of Brockville; and but for a successful working of  the air brakes many   lives   would   have  been lost    The,train  was   the   Toronto  express due a/i-30, crowded  with   people.    Just as the train  reached   a   point .  half way, a sudden shock was felt.     The  engineer instantly applied the air breaks  and brought the train to a standstill.     A  new steel rail'heavy pattern twisted and  bent into the form uf a V, was  lying' on  one side of the track, the crossing planks  were torn out, but   the   engine , had   remained on the track and thus  averted, a  very terrible accident.    The  local   train  men say it is the work of some  one   who  has a grudge against the company.  ROCHEFQRT CRAZY.  Pans, Oct. 20.���������Henri Rochefort is be  lieved to have gone crazy over the Dreyfus agitation. The reported decision of  the Court of Cessation that Dreyfus' lawyer shall not see him had caused Roche-  fort to demajid in his paper that the mem  bers of the Court of Cessation, having  been previously drawn up in single file,  an executioner d.uly trained to the work,  should cut off their eyelids, so as to leave  the eyeballs denuded and then spiders of  the most yenomcus kind should be enclosed in nutshells and applied to the  eyeballs. The spiders, in a famished  condition would slowly feed on them until hollow. This done, the hideous  blind men should be chained to a pillar  erected before the place of justice and on  their chests'a: placard affixed bearing the  words: "Thus does France punish traitors who attempt to sell her to the enemy."  NAVAL FIGHT.  Lotvton, Oct. 30.���������The Madrid correspondent says: "Capt.Au.non,. minister of  marines, ha; received a. despatch from  Manila, announcing a naval engagement  between the Americans and the rebels  in consequence of Admiral Dewey forbidding the latter to fly the rebel flag  from War, ships. The despatch adds  that there were losses on both sides and  that the Americans captured the, rebel,  ships.  HAVANA CONFERENCE.  Havana,.

'  "��������� England, like all other civilized countries, was originally'an agricultural country. Although for some centuries she has  been one of the chief manufacturing and  mercantile nations of the world, it lias  beon only during the past 100 years, and  especially during the past fifty years,  that her development in manufactures  and in commerce has been remarkable.  England is still, in' respect of quality,  the foremost agricultural country on tho  globe. Her breeds of horses, cattle, sheep  and swine are the standard breeds from  which almost all other breeds derive their  origin and by which from time to , time  they are improved. And nowhere is Otho  raising of grains and roots for food of  man and beast pursued with more skill  and success than in Kngland. But agriculture is fast ceasing to be an important  industry of England. Two .million acres  less are under cultivation now than were  THE COAL FIELDS OF ENGLAND.  cultivated   fifty   years   ago.     Tho   total  amount of wheat raised is sufficient only  for   three   months'   consumption' of  tho  people;    the remaining   quantity   needed  must be supplied by importation.   Three-  fifths of the total population of the island  live in towns and only a small proportion  of the population that live in the country  is   actually   supported     by    agriculture.  Agriculture, in fact, supports only 15 par  cent, of the population in all Britain and  in England only 10 per cent.    Three' and  a half times as many people   are   personally engaged in manufactures as in rural  pursuits.   For three-quarters, of a century  the population   in   towns   and cities has  been growing four times fasten  than   the  population of  the   rural   parts.    At   the  eame time   the   working   power   of   the  urban   population   lias   been   constantly  growing more effective. In fifty years, by  the genoral adoption   of   machinery,   the  effective   working   power of tho English  workman has been increased sixfold.    In  England 86 per cent, of the total work of  the country is done by steam and in Scotland 90 per cent.    Great   Britain,   therefore, has   become   practically   one   great  beehive of mercantile and manufacturing  industry.    Agriculture as a general occupation of the people,   except   in   the production of tho finer food   products,   such  as choice beef and mutton and high-grade  dairy products, is   no   longer   profitable.  Indeed, during the last fifteen   years   the  plant (including land) employed in   agricultural industries has been   depreciating  in value at tho rate of ������150,000,000 yearly; that   is,   in   these   fifteen    years the  enormous sum of 82,!Jo0,000,000 of capital  employed in agriculture has been obliterated. But tho gain to capital employed in  profitable mercantile and   manufacturing  pursuits has much more   than   compensated for this enormous los3 in agriculture.  One reason for the   great   development  which England has made as a  manufacturing and trading nation lies in tho   fact  that   England   was   tho   first -nation fc>  utilize on a large scale the.power of steam.  as a help to manufacture and trade.   The  steam engine   was ��������� a   British invention.  The first railways were built In , Britain.  The first steamship to cross the   Atlantic  was a British enterprise.    A   second reason lies in tho   fact' that   when England  began to use steam as a motive power she  found her   supplies   of   coal   so near her  iron mines   and    so   near   her clays and  earths needed for her potteries that   from  the very first she was able to manufacture  cheaply and   undersell   most of her competitors.    Her coal holds have an area   of  over 12,000 squaro   miles,   and   wherever  bw co<ilbcds are Other   natural   produces  have been   found   near   by,   so  that her  manufacturing areas   and   her coal areas  aro almost   identical.    .Taking Liverpool,  Manchester,      Birmingham,        Sheffield,  Leeds,   Newcastle,       Durham,      Bristol,  Stoko, Carlisle, Cardiff,   Swansea,   Glasgow,   Paisley   arid    Dundee   as   centers,  around each of   these   lies   a coal area of  such richness as amply   sustains it in its  commercial and manufacturing pre-cinin-  ence.    London   is almost the. only   great  commercial center of England   that   does  not lie in the midst of or quite   adjacent  to a rich coal and other mineral   region.  But London is within easy distance,   not  only by   rail   but   also   by  canal and by  coastwise sailing, of   every coal field and  mineral deposit of Britain. London, however, is an importing and   exporting center rather than a  manufacturing   center.  The commercial supremacy attained by  many of the large cities of Britain is not  wholly due to natural   causes or   even to  ordinary causes.  Much of it is due to extraordinary enterprise and forethought on  the part of  their   citizens.    London,   for  example, is the oenter of the  wool   trade  of England.  The woolen manufactures of  England use about 250,000 tons   or   wool  annually and three-fourths of this is   im  ported. Other, cities that, lie near,the  seats of the great woolen manufactures���������  Liverpool, for example���������have trie'd to  secur-j a share of this vast importation of  wool, but London, because of the special  attention it gives to this trade, manages  to .keep almost the whole of the trade in  its own hands. Similarly, London almost  wholly monopolizes the trade of England  with Arabia, India, the East Indies,  China and Japan. It is therefore the  great emporium for tea, coffee, sugar,  spices, indigo and raw silk. Ifc also enjoys  the bulk of England's trade in fruits  (oranges, lemons, currants, raisins, figs,  dates, etc.) and in wines, olive oil and  madder with the countries that lie about  tho Mediterranean. By virtue partly or  its situation,"but largely because of the  enterprise of its merchants, it absorbs  nearly the whole of England's French  trade and of England's trade with Germany, Belgium, Holland.and Denmark.  This includes principally wines (from  France) and butter, eggs and vegetables.  Another great branch of its trade is that  with the poits of tho Baltic, including  those of Russia, tho imports comprising,  besides wheat and wool, tallow, timber,  hemp and linseed. The tobacco imported  from Virginia into England goes almost  wholly to' London ; so does almost' the  whole of the Central American and South  American trade In fine woods, dye stuffs,  drugs, sugar, hides, india rubber, coffee  and diamonds. Quite a large share of the  trade of England with Canada is concentrated in London; also more than one-  half of the trade of England with the  West Indies, the imports of the latter  country comprising principally sugar,  molasses, fruit, rum, coffee, cocoa, fine  woods and ginger.  The great commercial centers of England after London are Glasgow (S00,000),  Liverpool (700,000) and Manchester (640, -  000 including Salford). All these cities  havo derived the greater portion of their  size f'Diii the progress they have made  during tho present century. All, of  course, owe. their progress and their prosperity largely to their natural advantages  of situation, etc. Liverpool stands at the  margin of the Atlantic, "the Mediterranean of the' modern world," and thus  enjoys the principal share of the trade  with America. Nearly all the cotton of  the world that is used in Europe is sent  to Liverpool for distribution.' Similarly,  Glasgow, situated with its aspect directed  toward tho same maritime routes, enjoys  also an immense transatlantic trade both  north and south. And Manchester, situated in tho very heart of the richest coal  districts of the kingdom and within easy  reach of the great cotton Dort, Liverpool,  has built'up a cotton-manufacturing industry surpassing that of all the rest of  the world.  But the natural advantages of situation  possessed by these great   cities havo been  grandly supplemented by   the   enterprise  of their   inhabitants.    Glasgow is only a  river port.    For1 twenty   miles  below its  site the Clyde is naturally   narrow, shallow and shoal-encumbered. In places it is  not more than   fifteen   inches   deep.    By  the   expenditure ' of   no less a sum than  $60,000,000 the shallow   stream  has been  converted into a continuous harbor, lined  on'oither side for miles with wharves and  docks and easily capable of   accommodating the largest and finest merchant ships  afloat. ���������   As   a consequence of this   enterprise   Glasgow   has   become  the greatest  shipbuilding port in the world.    No   less  than twenty shipyards���������in  efficiency and  magnitude of tho very highest   class���������are  to be found along the banks of the   once  shallow, impassable Clyde between   Glasgow proper and the river's mouth.  Similarly, tho enterprise of the ship  merchants of Liverpool has converted a  port that high tides and impassable bars  would naturally render unfit for modern  ships into tho greatest shipping port in  the world. One hundred million dollars  was spent in making the improvement,  but $5,000,000 is the annual revenue derived therefrom in dock dues alone. And  because of this enterprise Liverpool can  now boast of controlling one-fourth of all  the imports of the kingdom and two-fifths  of all tho exports and of handling three-  fourths of all the' grain and provision  trade of the kingdom and of having the  largest grain warehouses in the world.  But Manchester, a wholly inland city,  forty miles distant - from Liverpool, its  nearest port, has outdone even Glasgow  and Liverpool in its endeavor to bring  the sea to its own doors. It also has spent  $100,000,000���������not, however, in amounts  spread over a . number of years and as  occasion seemed^ to demand, but all at  once, in one lump sum, in one hugo enterprise. It has built a canal to the Mersey  where it is navigable thirty five and one-  half miles m length and sufficiently deep  and wide so that tho whole of its vast  'importation of cotton and tho whole of  its vast manufacture of cotton and otho'r  textile fabrics and as much else as may  be desired may bo brought in from the  sea or taken to the sea in merchant vessels of the very largest size no.w afloat.  And it has done this in the face of en-  inoeri'ng difficulties and of 'obstacles  raised against' it by jealous competing  interests that wore almost insurmountable.  HE   MOVES ARMIES.  The Man Uncle Sana Has Selected For Chief  of Transportation.  When Uncle Sam has work of importance to be done, he looks over this big  country and finds the one man of all bis  millions who can do it best. That is the  reason George R. Blanchard was asked to  become chief of transportation of the war  department with the rank of brigadier  general of volunteers.    The man who fills.  HOME  RENOVATION.  ' GEORGE E. BLANCHARD.  this office is virtually an assistant to the  secretary, of war. He takes entire charge  of the business of moving troops.  When the board of strategy recently de--  cided to.mobilize 60,000 militia volunteers  at Chickamauga, it was to the. chief of  transportation that the order was first  communicated, and on him rested the task  of carrymg out the order.  There can bo no question as to Mr.  Blanchard's ability. He knows more  about the railroads of this country than  any other man in it. If he didn't, he  would not have been chosen commissioner  of the Joint Traffic association, an office  which the United States supreme court is  quite liable to" decide is illegal.  Though . now a resident of New York,  Mr. Blanchard is widely known in other  parts of the  country, for he spent many  years  in Chicago as commissioner of the  Central Freight association, an organization of  eastern railroads having jurisdiction of the middle east.    When the Joint  Traffic association was' formed, two years  ' ago, he was chosen as the best man for the  more responsible position.    Ho then went  to New York, where he has since resided.  Mr. Blanchard has been 40 years in railroad service and has been a student of conr  ditions from the day be began in tho work.  For more than ten years he has been engaged in association work as a commissioner���������labor which requires the most intimate knowledge of conditions on each  of the lines' members of an organization.  Of the lines of the cast he is credited with  having as intimate acquaintance  as each  of the presidents has of  the single line he  controls.    Mr. Blanchard also has a reputation as a student of  government as affecting railroad interests.   Ho has written  many  articles  on  these  lines,   the most  noted of which has just been completed  as a thorough review of  the pooling question.    All have had wide circulation and  have made a reputation for the author.  If Mx. Blanchard protects the interests  of the government with the same care and  vigilance as he has those of the railroad  corporations and associations with which  he has been connected for more than 40  years, there will be no complaints of imperfect arrangements for the transportation of troops, and extortionate rates will  not bo tolerated. His appointment was-  undoubtedly due to his intimate acquaintance with Vice President Hobart, Chaun-  cey M. Depew, and President Thomson .of  the Pennsylvania.  Plain Directions For Painting: a Bathtub.  ���������    How to Clean Oilcloth, Etc..  Among the crosses many housewives  have to annoy them is a bathtub of uninviting appearance in a room that otherwise looks fresh and clean after renovating. The tarnished surface may refuse to become . bright, no matter what  cleaning materials are employed. The  Standard Designer tells how you may  remedy this and, by being your own  ���������workman, may, at a. trifling expense,  make the tub quite desirable.  ��������� Procure a small can of common paint  of any light color desired, a can of  enamel paint of the same color and a  good sized brush. Cut eight or ten inch  pieces of yellow soap into bits and put  it over the fire to dissolve in a couple of  "quarts of water. Fill the bathtub with  rery hot water, and throw in a generous handful of powdered borax and the  dissolved soap. When the water becomes cool, enough to put the hands in  it, scrub the surface with a brush, let-'  ting the water run off as the work is  done.' Again partly fill the tub with  hot water., and scrub it with the brush  and sand soap to make sure that all  greasy -particles have b**en removed:  Then*, rinse 'it in clear hot. water and  thoroughly dry. Cover it with two coatings of < the common .paint, letting one  thoroughly dry before putting on the  second coat. Then give it several coats  of ' the enamel paint. This paint will  dry more quickly than the other, and  the.bath will no longer be an unsightly  object. Care must be used not to run  very hot water into the bath until the  paint has hardened.  Oilcloth, it is toldfj by the same authority, should be carefully, swept to  free it from dust, then rubbed with a  , cloth dipped in hot milk' and afterward  rubbed with a dry cloth. Occasionally  a little size dissolved in hot water, and  the oilcloth rubbed ���������with some of it, will  give it a nice bright polish. Beeswax  and turpentine will prolong its wear.  This is used in the way you would polish an oak floor���������that is, rubbed on  with a piece of flannel and rubbed off  and polished -with a dry duster. ��������� Washing oilcloth with soap and soda and leaving the surface wet-is ruinous to it,  In washing furniture only small portions, should be done at a time, and  each part should be thoroughly and  quickly dried. Work downward, beginning at the top, so thatL splashes below  can be effaced as you work downward.  The following will be found a good  furniture polish: One-half pint linseed  oil. one-half pint turpentine, one-half  pint' vinegar, one-half pint spirits of  wine. Mix well together. When' used,  shake well and rub on the furniture  with a piece of linen rag >and polish  with a duster.  DRESS AND FASHION.  GOWNS  FOR JUNE WEDDINGS  ILLUSTRATED AND   DESCRIBED.

Allen, the New Assistant Secretary of the Navy.  Charles Herbert Allen, the new assistant  secretary of the navy, who succeeds Lieutenant Colonel Roosevelt, is from Lowell,  Mass., where he was born 50 years ago and  where he has always lived. Mr. Allen has  had more experience in politics than in  naval matters, but he is an enterprising  and energetic gentleman and will probably  make an able official.  Mr. Allen's career has not been particularly interesting up to this time. He received his early education in the public  schools of his native city and then went to  Amherst college. Soon after being graduated he entered politics. He was elected a  member of the Lowell school committee in  1874 and served until 1SS1.

This effort of oratory was received with  smiling attention by,tho  girl,   who,now-  addressed herself entirely , to   him, without heeding the effect of hor words   upon  her step-father, or his   interpolations, as  she proceeded.

" neither sound nor movement in the  room. John Arthur was literally speechless from rage, and old Amos was just as  speechloss' from astonishment; while  Madeline gazed from one to the other unmoved. A s soon as ho could articulate,  John Arthur confronted her, and taking  her roughly by the shoulder,. demandod :  '.'What do you mean, you ungrateful  jade?   What are you talking about?"  "About  your   contract <>in    flesh   and  'blood,   Mr.    Arthur.    About   your   very  worthy schemo of putting money in your  pockcjps by making me this man's   wife.

"Listen, girl, I am your lawful guardian : you shall obey mo !''  "Really, now, don't step-papa; you are  actually purple iu the face ! You might  die, you know; think of your heart, do,  and take a glass of water."  Old Adams collapsed in tho remote  corner whither ho had fled. The misor  was not at,homo in a tompost, and this  was already beyond his depth. He gasped  * in speohloss amazo and affright. Was this  the girl he had thought to mold as his  wife, this fearless, defiant creature? Already ho began to congratulate himself  upon his lucky oscape. "one would  murder me some ciay," ho thought, shuddering. ���������  For the time being, John Arthur was a  madman. Defied, mocked, by this girl  who had been a burden to his very life!  He raged, he raved, he cursed: and so  raging and raving, he cursed her, and  then in vile, bit-tor words hurled his anathema at her dead mother's memory.  Then tho mocking smilo was gone, tho  taunting voice changed its tone; and as  it changed, old Amos, coworing in his  corner, shudderod afresh. Her wholo  face underwent a transformation. Her  form dilated, she sprang boforo her stepfather and tho ring of her voice checked  tho imprecations on his lips.  "Stop," she cried;   "don't add the last  drop to your   already   overfull   measure!  Don't   double   the force of the   thunderbolt   that will' strike you somo   day!   Is  it not enough that ypu have hated me''all  -'my- life   through; that you havo   loaded  down my childhood with' unkind   words,  curses, and   wishes   for  my  death?

Not enough that you  would barter   my  life���������ye^,my   life���������for  gold, soil my heart's  blood for your own  ease and comfort?   And   now  must  you  pollute tho name  of   my   mother, as you  polluted   her   life?     Never   breatho   her  name again; never daro to name her!    I,  her daughter, tell you that for every tear,  . every   heart pang, every sigh,   you  shall  pay   dearly;    dearly   I   will avenge  my  mother's wrongs,   someday;   for you are  her murderer!"  John Arthur gazed in speechless amaze  into the space before him���������but she was  gonel The stern, vengeful, .set face was  no longer there. ' The proud, ringing  voice was no longer sounding In his ear.  The uplifted, warning, threatening hand  menaced him only in memory. And before the might of her purpose, and the  force of her maledictions, he stood as in  a trance.  When he had so far recovered himself  as to think of her sudden disappearance,  he went out quickly. The entrance door  stood wide open; the dim light flickered  on an empty hall and stairway; the sky  was black with clouds, and never a star;  the wind moaned about the house; and  across the meadow came the doleful howl  of old Hagar's watch-dog.  But Madeline was not to be found.  Always, in the days to come, he re-  memberod   her  face as i! had looked   on  Lucian Davlin paced the platform of  the Bellair' depot, in a very unpleasant  frame of mind.  His companion���������half servant, half confederate, wholly and entirely a rascal���������  discerning his mood, and, as ever, adapting himself to it, had withdrawn to a  respectful distance. Only the shine of his  cigar, glowing through the darkness, 'betokened his proximity, or the fact that  the - dark platform was not in the sole  possession of the sullen man who paced  its brief length, and questioned the Fate  in which he trusted, and which, for  once, had played him a sorry trick.  He had been deceived by a mere schoolgirl. . She had not even deigned him a  farewell word. , He had lost a fair prize.  "Gad!" he muttered, biting viciously  at his cigar, "to bo baffled like this; to  lose that little beauty; to be foiled like a  moonstruck idiot and never know hove  or why! I can't write her, with that  cursed old stop-father' to interfere. I  can't return again very soon. And she is  such a little beauty!"  He paused at the end of the darkened  platform, and looked down the track, in  the direction of tho grove where they had  met, and of Madeline's home. It was almost time for the train. At .the upper  end of the platform the station-master  flashed his lantern, tumbled the luggage  closer to the track- and examined the  checks critically; while the Man of Tact  came out from his- retirement and overlooked tho proceeding.        ,  Something was coming down the track,  swiftly, silently. He coiild just discern a  shape moving toward him. It' came  hearer and he moved up a few paces, and  turned again where the lantern's rays fell  upon hiai.'o It came nearer yet and paused in the shadow. It was a woman's  form, and it beckoned. He approached  carelessly.  "Lucian!" She came close to him,  and placed her hand upon his arm, drawing her breath hard and quick.  He drew her farther into the shadow  and clasped his arms about her. "Little  one,!, You have walked fast���������how your  heart boats! v- I had,given you up. Is it  'good-by,; dear?"  She silently" held up the little chatelaine,' which he felt rather than saw,  and took from her hand. In the darkness he smiled again the old exultant  smilo not good to see, and pressing her  closer in his arms, said:  "Don't try to talk,' sweet one; see,  yonder comes our fiery horse and soon  we will bo on our way. Take my arm,  little .one, and trust him who loves you.  Look your last at the scene of your past  loneliness���������to. morrow comes the gay  world."-, '  , Rattling and shrieking, the train approached. , Lucian hurried his companion upon the rear platform; and neither  his comrade, who entored the . smoking  car without looking about .him. nor tho  station master, busy with his trunks and  valises, -observed that a*"third passenger'  quitted Bellair station on the night express.   '  About them, the passengers nodded,  yawned or slept Outside, swiftly passing darkness. And cvory moment was  hurrying her farther and farther away  from all familiar scones and objects, out  to a life all untried, a world all new and  strange. But sho never thought of this.  .She was not'elated, neither was sho cast  down. She felt no fear���������and aftorwards,  sho remembered that she indulged in no  bright visions of the future during her  swift; flight.  .She had prepared herself to relate her  story, to describe the scone.she had just  passed through, to toll him all. But ho  had other things to occupy his mind,  and bidding her to rest aud save all she  might have to relate until the morrow,  he relapsed into silence and thought,  only now and then gently speaking a  word, and looking after her con-fort with  a happy grace possessed by few, and so  powerful in the winning of a woman.

Blacker  grow, the night, wilder shrieked tho wind  in   angry   protest   against .the   defiant,  fiery, resistless   monster .upon whom   its  race fell impotent.    Now. pausing;   now  rushing   on   with   a shriek and   a roar;  nearer, nearer   to the scene   oi   the   now  life, dawning grimly upon .the   fair girl,  all unconscious, unheeding.  ���������������������������They halted at a wayside   station���������just  one   of   those little   hamlets only a  tow  miles removed from, and really a part of,  the great city.    One  passenger   came  on  board,      sauntering     down   tho   coach's  length   listlessly,    wearily.      Hn    tnrew  hinisolf into a reversed seat   in a half re  dining   attitude,   and     so'his   careless,  wandering gaze foil   first upon Madeline,  sea tod opposite and. very near.  She sees him just as sho sees tho rosfc,  vaguely. She remembers, later, that ho  had a good face and that sho had thought  it then. But confused and weariod in  mind and body, sho feels no inclination  to obsorve or think. So they wero hur-  riod on, and no whisper of her heart, no  quickening of the pulses, or sensation of  joy or fear, warned her that she was sitting  under tho; gaze and in- the presence of tho  good and the evil forcos that wero to compass and shape^hor life.  Open your eyes, oh, Madeline, boforo it  is too late. See the snare that is spreading beneath your feet; read aright the  bright glance that shines on you from  these handsome, fateful eyes. Interpret  truly tho smile turned on you now.  Alas! what woman ever saw guile in the  eyes of tho man she loved?  Never one, until those eyes have ceased  to smile upon her, and her fate is sealed.  What one ever yot recognized the false  ring of the voice that had never, as yet,  addressed her save in honeyed tones, that  seemed earth's sweetest music to her cars?  None, until tho voico had changed and  forgotten its love words; none, until it  was too late.  What  Madoline  saw, was a man   who  was to hor the embodiment of all manly  grace, her all of joy and love, of truth  and trust. And, sitting opposite, just, a  young man with fair curling hair, and  frank blue eyes; with a fine manly face,  and an air nf refinement. A very nice  young man ; but not like her hero.  Not like her hero? No, thank heaven  for that, Madeline, else your way would  have been far more dreary, else your life  might have known nev������r a ray of sunlight, in the long days to come.  On, on ; nearer and yet nearer the long  journey's end. Both thinking of her, but  how differently!  One pityingly, sadly, fearing' for her  fate, longing to savo her from the precipice which she could not see- and stiil  wear that look of sweet trustfulness.  One triumpantly, as of a fair prizo  gained; a new tribute to his power aud  strength ; another smile from Chance; one  moro proof that he was' a favored one of  Fortune, and that life" ever gave him good  things from out tho very best  They are very near their journey's end  now, and Lucian Davlin whispers briefly  to Madeline, and lounges out to give  some necessary directions to tho neglected  companion of his wanderings.  . Hastily the young man opposite rises,  1 and crossing to Madeline, bends over her,  speaking hurriedly. ������  "Pardon me, madamc, but are you a  stranger to the city?"  "Yes." After giving her answer she  wonders why a she did'it, 'remembering  that it is from a stranger tho question  comes, and that it is, therefore, an impertinence.  ������4"I thought as much !"���������the blue eyes  look troubled, and the manly voice h-ir-  ried on. "The time may come, I hope it  will not, when you will need a friend.  Iflso,' this card bears my address���������take it,  keep it, and believe me, I speak from  honest motives and a desire to serve you."  He drops a card in her ��������� lap, and us she  makes a gesture of repulsion, he says, en-  treatingly ''Take it; in the name of your  mother I ask it." ' ;  She snatches ud the card impulsively!  and looks for one moment straight in his  eyes. Then drawing a long, sighing  breath, says, simply, "I will," and turns  away as she puts it in her pocket, never  so much as glancing at it.  "Thank you." He lifts his hat, and  resumes his seat and his former attitude  just as Lucian re-appears.  Now all was bustle and confusion, tlr:  journey's end was reached ; and through  tho hurrying, jostling crowd, past flickering lamps and sleepy guards, they  went under the dusky" arches of the  mammoth city station, out among "the'  bawling 'bus drivers and brawling hack-  men, past .them, until a carriage, that  seemed to be in waiting for them just  beyond the noisy crowdf'was reached.  Stepping into this, they were about to  drive away when, in the. shadow, and  very near them, Madeline' discerned the  form of. the Unknown of the, railway  train. Then Lucian gave the order from  tho carriage window, and th'ey rolled  away.  The man in, the shadow heard, and  stepping into tho nearest carriage repeated the order given by Lucins the -moment before,- adding:. "Quick;.don.'t lose  a moment!" f  And thus it was that a carriage p������\issed  swiftly by that which contained Davlin  and his companion, and the flash of their  vehicle's iSnip showed Madeline the face  looking from its window.  Again that face seon in the shadow���������  how strange, thought she; but her lover  was sppaking and she forgot all else.  "Darling.   I  must leave  you   soon.    I  came   up to-night on   a  matter  of business, and to meet a friend who will leave  to-morfow early.    I must, therefore, keep  my appointment to-night, late   as   it   is;  or, rather,    this   moraine, for   it is midnight and past.    You   will not be afraid,  dear,   left   alono for a little  while   in   a  great hotel?"  "I am not afraid, Lucian, but���������"  "But-lonely; is that   it?   Well,   sweetheart, it's only for a little while, and to-  7iiorrow I will come for you, and all shall  bo arranged.    We'll have no more sopara-*  tions then.    Rest  well,   and at   noon tomorrow   be   ready; I  will he  with   you  then.    Meantime   your  every want   will  be supplied, and let tho morrow   find my  little treasure bright-eyed and blooming.''  "Oh,   Lucian.    Lucian!   how    strange  this seems. I cant't realize it at all."  Ho laughed lightly. "Not afraid, little  one?"  "Not afraid, Lucian, no; but I can't  explain or describe my feelings. I suppose I need rest; that is all. "  "That is all, depend noon it; and here  we are. One kiss Madeline, the last till  to-morrow."  Ho folded her tenderly in his .arms, and  then sprang iig'^tly from the carriage.

Every year the veranda is becoming  more and more an integral part of the  house beautiful.' It is no longer merely  a shelter, from tho elements, sparsely  furnished with chairs,'but is a living  room and treated as such, and is furnished with the same taste and care  that are bestowed upon the best "of the  rooms. Of^course it goes without saying  that both the textiles,and'furniture employed must be as far as possible weather proof, but this is no handicap nowadays, as rugs and materials that defy  rain and snow are to be had in the  greatest yariety, except directly on the  seashore, where the dampness and high  ���������winds make it impossible, says the New  York Tribune, from which the following suggestions on furnishing a veranda  are reproduced:.  An outdoor room, netted in .so that  the lights at night will not attract troublesome insects, prettily and comfortably furnished,-should be a part of every  country house. .Curtains made of colored awning cloth and hung with small  .brass rings on a slender galvanized iron  rod, so that they may easily be pushed  forward and back, are both useful and  pretty,   although   some   people   prefer  YANKEE GUNNERY.  A VERANDA COZT CORNER.  Venetian blinds or the rattan' shades,  which now come for verandas in any  width desired. Hammocks, of course,  are the natural lounging places for a  veranda room, but they are now made  much more elaborately than formerly,  with valences hanging on either side  and piled up with cushions of many  colors. Another recent accessory to outdoor furniture which has become popular is the swinging sofa, legless, of  course, swung by four chains to the roof,  and filled with cushions.  Even the divan  has  been adapted to  open air furnishing.  One which filled a  corner of the veranda of  a scasirlo cottage last summer  is  shaped like an irregular  elongated  triangle,   with   two  sides against the walls of the house, and  consists  of  a  frame  a  foot high,   on  which is a mattress  covered wirh india  rubber cloth.    Over this  is a buttoned  covering cf green denim, with a flounce,  and tho drapery consists  of  an old sail  and a fish  net, which  is  held up by a  pair d cars arid a crab net, all cf winch  have  been well  reasoned  by wind and  weather.

The old skipper unburdened his patriotic soul the other day on the subject  of Yankee genius and valor in naval  warfare. He had an audience of youngsters who felt dimly that they were the  scions of a great nautical race, and when  he got through with his palaver they  were quite sure of it.  "In tho war of 1812," the old  skipper said, "we  proved oven to the satis-'  faction of the British admiralty that in  a duel of, warships noise, smoke, smash  and splinters were  inferior to  skillful  maneuvering and quick, strong aud accurate firing���������otherwise, gunner3T. Nelson's tactics, to close in with your antagonist  and  pound Jiim, went  up in  the smoke of the Guerriere, the  Macedonian and  the  Java captures,' and  is  now nothing  but a tradition.    The  su- '  periority of American ships, guns aud .���������  seamen in those days staggered the European naval world.    Those victories of ���������  ours made the..battles of  the Nile  and  Trafalgar appear, what they really were  ���������brutally stupid.  "When our frigate Constitution met  the brave  Guerriere  and  the ."Java  in  single combat, it was a struggle of keen  intelligence against  brute force and arrogant  ignorance.   ,The Guerriere Twas .  then the crack frigate of  the British  navy, and  the first one in 30 years to ,,  strike her flag in a naval duel between  single ships. 'The great'disparity of the  loss in killed and wounded���������five times  as many on the Guerriere as on the Constitution���������astounded the naval world.  Our sea fights set all Europe thinking, '  just a'Conr^fights in this war may do.  It was many years, however, before the  English acknowledged   that   the   real  cause of their defeats in the war of 1812    .  was the superiority of the  gunnery on    ���������  the American ships. It was their excuse'  at the time of tho war, and many years  after, that the  British  tars had  been  6imply overpowered   by the American,  ships and the weight of their guns.  The  true explanation   was   that   we were  marksmen.  "At the siege of Yorktown in our Rev-    ,  olutionary war  the  deadly accuracy of  Washington's artillery fire  astonished l  the European artillerists.    'Your  progress  in artillery is wonderful,' said the    ,  gallant Lafayette to Major Shaw.  General Knox personally superintended the  serving of the guns.  He was bred in the *  woods of Maine and was a born artillerist.    '.You fire better than tho French,  apon my word ycu do,' said Lafpyefcte  as Major Shaw modestly protested.  "In all  cases  except one  American  gunnery in the war of IS 12 was superior to the British.    That exception was  in the case of the British frigato Shannon, which whipped and  captured the  American frigate Chesapeake. It was an  illustration  of  stealing  an opponent's,  trumps and playing them back at him_  The  Shannon's guns were  fitted  witln  American sights and -her crew were exercised after the American fashion.  The;  commander of the Shannon paid particular attention  to gunnery. In fact, he  wras the only officer in the British navy  who did at that time.   The bravo Lawrence who, as' Decatur said  afterward,  'had no more  dodge in. him than the  mainmast,'   dashed   recklessly against  the  deadly fire of  the Shannon.    After  receiving the  Shannon's first broadside  the Chesapeake was out of it.  "As late as 1830 the American gun  isight was considered tho best device  known to naval artillerists. It was introduced into naval gunnery by the Yankees in 1771. I have no doubt that in  this war with Spain and in any future  war that we may havo on the sea Yankee ingenuity and intelligence will  achieve the success that has always attended them.''���������New York Sun.

This is particularly the case in  painting skies, distant hills and stretches.  of water.    In using lavender the color  remains "open"   longer,   and  the outlines or edges  spread  away almost imperceptibly, thus avoiding hardness.   In  using turpentine  the  evaporation is so  much more  rapid  that  hardness is almost a certainty.    If it seems advisable  to make  the  lavender more  volatile,  this can be done  by the judicious addition  of alcohol,   says  The Art  Interchange.

If we could see ourselves as others see. us,  .how many would see themselves as they  now do ? How many can correctly compare  their own condition ������vith the conditions, under which others are living;'. It is our own  trials, troubles, pains disappointment's and  lost opportunities that we teet most keenly.  We .cannot know how much others are suffer  \ l  ing from tlie same despondent  feelings  that  may be making us miserable. ���������  One's happiness depends much on^ one's  makeup. Some seem to be boru under  clouds that never lift to let in tho clear sunr'  shine. They always seem to feel that they  are "fated" to have more bad than good  luck m the world. In a sense tliis is true,  Must as it is tatod that some apples shall be  windfalls while others remain to reach full  maturity. But in the animal world ot  which man is a part, much depends in the  individual.  I do not claim that all troubles are avoidable, we all ]know that they are not. So  long as there is iguoranee there wilj be more  or less suffering. But do we do as well as  we know ? Is our trouble all due to the  acts or the neglect of others 2 When I see  a man pay as much for tobacco as would  keep his wife iu shoes; of as much, directly  or indirectly, for intoxicating liquors as  would keep his whole family comfortable,  I cannot believe he is doing as well as he  knows. When I see a man loafing because  he is unwilling to work unless he can have  just the kind of a job he would like and a  price to suit, I caunot help feeling that if l  by and by, he finds himself eold and hungry  the fault is surely somewhat his own..  The most successful ,men so fa.' as I have  observed are those who do the best they  can under the circumstances right here and  now. A person who is willing to do the  best he can iu any place that opens is going  to know how to do more than one thing. 1  never knew one who could turn his hand t<>  several kinds of work who was long idle  There'are many men who are never idle.  Some one wants them  whenever they are at  liberty.  Urioucoessful men waste too much time  wishing they were somewhere else or were  doing something else. It is this discontent  that keeps too many men tr<������velhug from  city to city lookiog for a betcer job. " It all  the families that have moved half way  across the continent in search of a better  place to live in had remained where they  were and done all in their power to make  the old home better, they c-iuld now have  homes that might easily'be che envy of their  less persistenc neighbors. We are too apt  to be enchanted by things seen ;rom a  distance.  There is not half   so much difference   iu  Dlace  as there is in   hibli.      Many   farmers  wish they   were   meou.inics   or   merchants  while an even greater number   who   are   in  other busiaess wish they  were farmers.    If  these   two   discontented   classes   were    to  change places, the chances   are ten   to   one  that both would be losers rathe> than gainers.    Far better would it be for both if each  would set himself to doing the best possible  for himself where he now is.     The farmer  who is constantly  moving   west   or   somewhere else is pretty sure to  neglect   opportunities at  home.    He   neglects   to   plant  trees, to drain his wet  lands,   to   clear   off  rocks, to build good mads over his farm, to  repair and improve his buildings and needed fences, because he may move   away   aud  then he will Ipse the  benefit  of   his   labor.
