THE PARKERS,  A little over -a year   ago the  Parkers���������  Mr and Mrs.���������came herefrom Zeean, Tasmania.   They  were   good   singers and at  once   came to   the   front as   favorites in  concerts, and were  prominent in a church  choir.    There is a little girl in the family  - of about seven   years, small   of her   age,  pale and pinched in appearance.    It has a  fashion of crying out at times,    and curiously   enough   it    sometimes   exhibited a  bloody nose and mouth.    On   Monday   of  last   week the    child was   noticed with a  big lump on its- forehead, as if it had been  hit with a stick,    The kind-hearted neighbors finally  complained,    or at least some  one of them did, to the proper authorities  and a citation was issued for Mrs. Parker  to explain before  Magistrates Abrams and  McKnight.   The trial   came off on Thursday evening.    Mrs. Parker   denied having  struck the child,  on the   head;   said   she  noticed the lump-on its forehead  when it  came home, enquired   the cause; 'and was  told by her little girl   bus didn't know.  The evidence was   necessarily   oonfiaed   to  the  charge   of the 18th,   and as the child  was too young to   testify,   and as no   one  saw   Mrs.P. strike   it, the   case  was dismissed.    But the end is not yet.  There is another charge which has been  fyled in the Court of Public Opinion, and  may Mud its way/into the courts of the land.  The charge is a very serious one, and if not  true can be ve**y e wily^ disproved, and we  hope it may be. It is in effect that the man  and woman known.as Mr. and Mrs. Parker  and who have passed as such here, are noc  in fact married. This report is brought by  people coming from the same place that the  Parkers did. As a result thev are not wanted iu the choir when* they have be:n accustomed to appear, uor until this matter is  cleared up, will they be likely to appear ou  concert platforms. The News will gladly  publish evidence calculated to exonerato  them, if such evidence shall be furnisned.  Saturday evening 23d, inst.,   Mrs. Parker was again brought up belore   Magistrates   Abrams and   McKnight   on   the  charge of ill-treating-  lier  litt.e girl, .between July 1 st, and 15th.  J.  B.   McLean  testified: "1   reside  in  Union, I came home from  work on evening-in  question;  passing around   to the  back of my hou?e 1 entered it.    My  wife  went out shortly after my arrival and called me  outside.    She drew my  attention  to Mrs.   Parker's house  where the  little  girl was standing out-side leaning against  the wall���������the little girl  who goes   under  the name of Maudie Parker.    She seemed to be suffering; somewhat, judging by  her attitude.    My wife   went over  to see  what was the matter and I followed.   We  found,   on    examination,   blood   issuing  from her nose and mouth.   Mrs. McLean  entered   Mrs.   Parker's  house  with  the  object of getting some   water to put on  the   child's    neck;   and    Mrs.     Parker  appeared and ordered us to go home and  mind our own   business.    Mrs.   McLt-an  asked Mrs. Parker why she was treating  the child like that, when she replied that  she would   do  as she   pleased   again   if  necessary.    Mrs.  McLean    asked    Mr.  Parker, who was standing behind us splitting wood, why   he did   not   attempt   to  stop the bleeding and he replied: 'It's no  use; she means to kill her any way.'  Mrs.  Parker   drew   the   child into the   house  and we returned to our home."  In answer to a question by Magistrate  Abrams witness said: "1 took it for granted she had abused the child by its  appearance. It was about 5:30 in the  afternoon."  Mrs. McLean being sworn said: "I  corrobera-e my husband's statement in  every particular.    1 have  nothing to add  to it."  Mrs. Parker was then sworn in her  behalf and testified as follows: "I will say  011 the .day referred to I certainly did  strike the child with the back of my hand  and supple 1 htt her on the nose, but I  did not intend to hit her on the nose or  do her any harm. It did make her nose  bleed, but nothing to speak of, and her  mouth   was not   bleeding at   all.    I was  TIGER   IBIEEaA-HSTUDS  ALL KINDS, QUALITIES & SIZES  Just arrived from the Gait  Knitting' Mills, men's sizes rang  ing from 36 to 46.     Boys' underwear, a Specialty,  prices   away  down at  jmmm^^_]HePRE/S # M.OORE'S.  not aware I had  hit her  on   the   nose at  the time until I heard Mrs. McLsan blast  out something   in   the  b.ick  yard:    She  came inside my back   kitchen and took a  rag off of the   bench.    As   she   did  so I  followed her   to the back  door and  told  her to   clear out of   the yard   as soon as  she liked and mind her own business, not  interfere   with   me as I never   interfered  with her, or any one else;  that she whip-.  ed hers when she thougnt fit and I would  whip mine   when it was - necessary.    At  that Mr. McLean put in his   spoke and I  can't   exactly    say   what    I   said, but  I  slammed the   door'in   his   face and  told  him to go home, too.   I took the child by  the shouldei and put her inside the door  Her nose had   stopped   bleeding.     The  child's nose will bleed   most any   time���������  even when   she  coughs.     It   has   been  inclined   to   bleed   since   she   had   the  measles.    I gave her a smack in the face  for not doing as   she was   told.    It   was  three vears ago when she had the measles.  Her nose bleeds nearly all the time."  Mr. Parker sworn for defence, said:  "I  heard Mrs. Parker's evidence  and. I cor-  roberate   it   in    every   particular.     Mrs.  McLean   a->ked   me   10 try and   stop the  blood.   -1 told  her I would   not   interfere  between mother <md child���������h..vj nothing  to do with it.    Thai's   what   I   stated.     I  don't know   whether the  child   had   the  mea-le-.     Mrs.   Parker    wasn't    abusing  the-hid.    If I thought   there   was   any  ���������hin;.' wioi g I wouid   have   interfered.     I  did not in.erlere   because   Mrs.   McLean  ���������.wis doing  it; it   didn't   require   two.    A  si.tp in the mouth, what is   that?    Yes, it  is not   right to   strike a" child   in the face  [in answer to a question.]    I   thought   it  wasn't   necessary  to interfere as  long as  Mrs. McLean was  doing it.    That  child  is in bed.    I know of   no one  else being  in the house.    I locked the house when I  left   home;   the   keys   are in my pocket  [time   8:30 p. in.]    The   child   was   not  asleep   when I leit.    Think   it best;   the  child is best   in bed; think it all  right to  leave it so. The child waft not sick yesterday��������� don't   think  she   was   at   school;  don't know why."  Mrs. Parker recalled, said : "My child  is at home in bed; put her in bed about  7 o'clock; not asleep when I left I very  frequently leave her alone. She is locked  up; not timid; will go out in the dark.  Mrs. Thcrburn generally keeps an eye on '  the house I think it is perfectly .safe.  I wouldn't leave her only two hours at a  time. She has sometimes been in at  Mrs. Thoiburn's when I knew I was  going out. I will keep her from .school  after this, so she won't go to neighbors  and ask for food; will teach her myself."  There being no farther evidence the  magistrates retired for consultation.  They soon came back when Magistrate  Abrams announced their conclusions.  He said they were satisfied from the  evidence the child [aged 7 years] had  been ill-treated. He thought Mr. Parker  had not performed his duty by not interfering. He said several had complained  to him during tbe day that they knew the  child had been abused; one person said  he saw Mrs. Parker strike it with a  shovel, but at other times than laid in the  complaint upon which Mrs. Parker had  been tried. He suggested to Mrs. Parker that if she didn't want to keep the  child there were several homes which  were open to it in town where it would  be-r-iken good care of. To this suggestion Mrs. Parker s*.id she wouid not give  it up. Well, said the magistrate we  co-aid impose a fine of $100.00 and give  y< 111 six months in jail. However we shall  fine you S5.n0 and costs 01 ten days.  And we hope we shall hear no more  complaints in regard to vour treatment of  your child. Magistrate McKnight concurred m what hai been said, adding a  few admonitory words.  f BOIBJII1TT LAZ&  Editor News :  Bennett Lake, Sept. 26th.���������According to promise I write you from this  point. The boys���������eight of us���������are, all  well and in the best of spirits. We have  had a hard time in getting here from  Skagway Bay. The first three or four  miles a wagon could be used, but after  we started to climb the mountains, we  kept going up until I thought.we would  reach the sky ! Then we went down the  other side; then oyer rivers and through  swamps. There were hundreds of dead  horses on the route. Some died of starvation; others got their legs broken.' I  have seen them stumble down.the mountain-side hundreds of feet���������sometimes  dead before they reached the bottom, In  (pne case I saw a horse go down 400 feet  into the river and come up and go to  packing again; but packing after such a  tumble didn't often occur. At the  swamps you could step -from one dead.  to another. Often when they got mired  they were too weak to get cut.  When we left Skagway we had four  horses but before we got here we had to  buy twenty more, .without which I don't  think we could have made it this season.  The mules we got of Mr. Little, stood us  all the way through, though when we got  here they were about '"played;" so Joe  Greaves shot them rather than let them  starve, as there is very little feed here for  animals.  We are now nearly ready to go down  the river. We have two boats almost  complete. It is very hard to get lumber  for boat building. The trees are small  and rough. We had to whipsaw the  lumber   for our   two  boats.    Lumber  is  c selling here for $750.00 per thousand feet  or 75c per foot. I ofttn think of the lots  of lumber I left at home. If I had it here  I'd not go to the gold fields. Flour is  $25.00 a sack. At Skagway Bay horses  were worth from $200.00 to $500.00  each; here they can be bought from $5.00  to $25.00. Boats to go down the river  sell from $400 to $600, and poor ones at  that. The two boats we have built are  huge and   will take all  oar -'stuff-"    My  address   wll be hereafter  Dawson  City,  British Yukon.

THE ���������iNW'S.  TJNIOX.E.C.  J     '���������...'���������'������������������ ���������"''���������.���������:"  j The Week's Commercial Summary.  Call loans on choice collateral are   be-  ,Ing made,in Toronto at 4 per cent.  ;    The net. eold  balance,  of   the   United  'States treasury is $143,570,000.  ! 'In some   quarters of   Ontario we   hear  of too much i-ain for the grain crops.  !     The wool market at Toronto    is   quiet  ;with prices easy.    Dealers are paying 18c  for wool in the fleece.  i The stocks of wheat at Toronto are  'now 98,384 bushels as against 112,793  jbushels last week and 64,149 bushels a  'year ago. ���������      ,  ! Stocks of wheat at Port, Arthur and  .Fort William   are   1,990,143    bushels   as  against 1,704,31S bushels a week ago and  i 1,635,916 a year ago.  The'traffic   r.eturns    of   tbe    Canadian  Pacific railway for the..week ended   June  7, 1897, amounted to ������469,000; for the  -corresponding week of lust year the re-  , turns were ������403,000.        "',-���������,'���������  '     The visible supply   of   wheat   in   the  'United     States   and    Canada   decreased  t2,445;000"bushels'lascweek,rand the total  -is now   only 24,450,000 bushels as   compared with    50,147,000    bushels' a  -year  ago.  The amount afloat to Europe is 1S,-  660,000   bushels, the same as   last week,  while, ay year ago-the. total'-was 30,720,000  bushels.-' ,������  The; quiet trade in wholesale circles at  ' Toronto this week is due in a measure to  ��������� the tinfavorable weather. "Trie sorting up  trade'in dry goods is backward, the de-  i ruand being slow owing to cool and wet  > atmosphere. The grain crops are not as  '.promising as a week ago for the same  'reason, but the hay crop is likely to be  vary heavy. Some improvement is reported in groceries, there .being a good  demand for teas and sugars.. The latter  are firm in prices, with larger purchase*  than usual in consequence of the. ap-  j proach of the berry season.   "  Trade conditions at Montreal are prao������  tically unaltered, and our general remarks of last week will apply at date.  Reports continue to oome in from different parts of the province regarding frost  damaged meadows, and delayed field  work.: The dry, goods trade benefited by  a few days fine weather after last writing, but unfavorable conditions have  again intervened. Travelers in this line  are now out with full lines of fall samples, but orders have not yet begun to  come in freely, and at the moment  wholesale business is confined to a moderate sorting demand j mainly from the  country.  The German   chemists, says    The    Toronto World, are busy at work on almost-  every conceivablei "scientificproblem.   Tha  latest victory is said to be  the   discovery  of a process for   making   dough   directly  from wheat, the   milling   process   being  entirely dispensed with.      The following  interesting facts in regard to   the invention  are   translated   from   the   German  newspaperyDie Neue Heibkuns.     According to that journal a factory running tin-  j der the new system has been   established  fat Altona, and the trade-done thereat   is  so great that additions to the plant have  become   necessary.    The   machinery not  only   transforms   whole   grains   directly  into dough, but also   at   the same   time  kneads it, no grinding or milling process  being employed at all.      After the wheat  is first   thoroughly    cleaned    in   the dry  state, it, is placed in running water until  the latter is   no   longer turbid, and it is  then allowed'to soak for a few hours in a  temperature of 50 degrees to    52   degrees  centigrade.      In the slimy   condition   in  which it is then found it is placed in the  dough machine; where it aoes through  a  patented process, whereby    the   mass   is  ���������vrigorously squeezed and a,t the same time  passed   .through    -i   seive.    The   doughy  mass is then passed through a serve with  finer meshes, finding its way into   wooden boxes and   then    into   souring   vats.  \ The quantity .of dirt   which   the   process  removes-from'the   grain    is   said    to   be  frightening, both   in    cleansing the   dry  {grain and during the  doughing   process,  2 when the surface of the water is   covered  jwith a disgusting layer of stuff' made up  iof dust, weeds and the ejections   of mice  and birds, all of which   the   machine   is  said to thoroughly remove.  The -writer of  the article claims that   the    bread   made  by this process is not only healthier ��������� and  ���������more   palatible   than   that   of   ordinary  {.manufacture but   also  more    nutritious.  All the nutritive portions are   preserved,  especially those   nearest  the    outer   surface, which   it   is claimed,    are   lost by  'milling operations.       That   none of   the  ^nitrogenous   substances are   removed    is  ! proved by the fuct tha albuminoid ratio  of the bread is 1.5. and even the most  jfibrous or woody portions- are in such a  fcondition. Finally, the new process is  Ssaid to be most economical.  THE LIMEKILN CLUB.  BROTHER    GARDNER    STOPS   A    DISPUTE ABOUT  NOAH'S ARK.

Brudder \V):skins am, a Baptist, an Brudder ,  Jones hangs out wid doUniversalists. Dey  had got into a dispute 'bout Noah's ark.  De one said it- was painted red an de other  blue, an dey had gob mad an was'figbtin  ober it. I took off my'coat an soiled in,  an if dose two members am still laid up in  bed it's only what dey desarve. Dat ark  may hcv'bin painted de,reddest sort o' red  or de bluest sort o' blue, or it might not  hov bin painted at all. What's de difference to us? ,: It am our bizness to pay our  rent, go to church on Sunday an ,keep de  ole woman an chill1 en in shoes, an de color  of Noah's ark or de color- of Noah's whiskers ain't; gwine to help us out.  "A fuwidays ago I went ober to call on  Brudder Waydown Bebee, who owes me  ������2, an 'pears to hev forgotten it. I found  a row in progress in his back ya'd. Brudder Comealong Thompson ^had called to  borry some"- butter, an dey had begun to  talk 'bout Dan'l in de lion's den. Brudder Bebee said dat Dan'l.was so skeert  when he was shet up w*id de lions dat his  lia'r all curled up. Brudder Thompson  contended dat Dan'l wasn't skeert 'tall,  Hut dat he jest looked de lions in de face  an smiled. Den dey called each other liars  an dodos an pitched in. I ar' happy to ob-  sarvedatl also took a hand in. It was  a sort o' surprise party to de crowd, an  dey hain't got ober it yit. What we got  to do wid Dan'l in de lion's don? He may  hev bin skeert, an he may hey had a reg'-  lar picnic ober it, but how does dat help;  us to keep de cook stove gwine? Whathap-^.  pened 1,800 y'ars ago hain't gwine to buy  codfish fur tomOrrer.  ".Tain't werrv long ago dat Samuel Shin  an Giveadam Jones got together to see  'bout church matters. Boaf am Methodists, bur. while Brudder Shin believes de  ���������'whale sw-illered Jonah, Brudder Jones  won't hev it dat way. Dey had no bizness  to bring up. dat whale, but dey hadn't  talked ten minus when up he riz an each  man begun to blow an shake his fists. De  natural consekence was a fight. I wasn't  dar to swing my ri.-.*ht, but it is consolin  to know dat -Bruduer Shin had his nose  broken, an Brudder Jones lost, a heap o'  ha'r an v.'ill limp around on one leg fur  weeks to cum. What if dat whale did or  didn't swaller Jonah? How's dat gwine  to keep flour in de bar'l- at home? Dar  was a whale or dar wasn't. Dar was a  Jonah or dar wasn't. Put" it either way,  an is it- gwine to rake anythin off de price  of a red flannel shirt?  "Neither Sir Isaac Walpole nor de Rev.  Penstock am yere in deir'places dis evenin!  Why not? 'K:.?e de two of 'em sot down  to play checkers a few nights ago, an dey  hadn't bin playin above five minits when  Sir Isaac ol.sarved dat he had bin readin  'bout Moses in de bulrushes an didn't believe de yarn. De Rev. Penstock fired up  in a moment an said it was all true an he  could lick de man who denied it.

Dr. De Witt Talmace Sends  Out a Rin-rina:  JSujrle Blast.  It seems to me that it is about time  for the 17,000,000 professors of religion in  America to take sides.  It is going to be ah out and out battle  between drunkenn ss - and sobriety, between Heaven and hell between God and  the devil.  Take sides before there is any further-  national decadence, takes sides; before,  your sons are sacrificed and the homes of  your daughters go down under the alcoholism of imbruted htu bands.  If the 17,000,000 professors of religion  should take sides on ihis subject, it  would not be very long be-fore the destiny  of this.nation.would''be decided in the  right direction.  I tell you what any of you may never  have thought of���������that to-day, not in the  millennium but today���������the church  holds the balance of power in .America  and if Christian people, the men" and  women who profess to love tho Lord  Jesus Christ, and to love purity, and to  be the sworn enemies of all uncleanli-  ness and debauchery and sin, if all such  would march side by side and shoulder  to shoulder, this eyil would soon be overthrown.   ,  ."' ...   ;...'.-,  Think of 30,000 churches and Sunday  schools in Christendom marching shoulder  to shoukler!

Ali on Account of the Wheel.  The bicycle sundry business has reached  vast proportions. Every article needed by  the wheelman, and some that he'll never  need, is the subject of fierce competition.  The competition not only covers the  manufacturer, but extends to the retail  dealer as well. Bicycle sundries can' be  found in all sorts of unexpected places.  Some of the dry goods people make a  specialty of them, and there are many  other concerns that carry them as they  would any prime necessity. Of course all  this makes competition fast and furious  at the regular bicycle stores. Here is an  illustration of the way the thing some-  time's goes:���������  An eagle eyed customer walked into a  Euclid avenue wheel depot last Saturday  evening and asked to look at locks. He  was shown a lock and chain and inquired  the price. The proprietor had sized him  . up and was determined to make a sale,  even if he sacrificed profits to do it.  "Ten cents," he replied.  A smile of ineffable contempt came  over the customer's classic features. He  held the lock to the light and viewed it  at every possible angle.  Then he handed it back to the proprietor.  "'Tain't worth more'n a nickel," he  remarked.  The proprietor looked at him in sorrow.  "If I had known with whom I was  dealing," he plaintively remarked, "I  wouldn't have put up the price on you.  Here, take it as a gift."  And the customer, with a gratified  smirk creeping around the corners of his  finely chiseled mouth, pocketed the lock  and went out into the night.���������Cleveland  PlaJji Dealer^   Made It a Kargain. .

Still, never  is a long time.  ���������The second week of this three header]  Islington show was devoted to the hackney, of which-"there were 486 entries.  The noticeablefeature of the hackney  show was the increased^ average heighl  of the animals. Since, however, Mr.  Burdett-Coutts, the famous .British  hackney breeder and member of parliament, has given  it  as his opinion thai  CHAMPION HACKNEY.  ���������the greatest height of the hackney type  compatible with elegance of form and  appearance is 15.3 hands, it is not likely that breeders will encourage the tendency to greater height.  The champion hackney was Rosador,  shown in the third illustration.  After the shires and hackneys came  hunters and thoroughbreds.  One of the thoroughbreds, as the race  or running horse is commonly called,  A ROUND UP.  The Eastern  Tenderfoot  Has  IJttl* XdftS  What It Is Like. .   ,.  All along the western'. borders of  South Dakota the round up campfires  burn brightly. Far to the west, bounded 'only by the snowcapped Rockies,  hundreds,, of mess wagons staked camp  last night. ��������� The Missouri river marks  the eastern" border of the great western'  ranges. In Dakota alone at least 1,500  xiders are engaged in rounding up cattle  and'branding the calf crop. Twenty-  five Outfits have planned and laid out  their routes,,aiid at least sis weeks of  continuous riding will be necessary to  do the work. Fifty to 60 riders will follow, each wagon or outfit.  The outfit consists of  the mess wagon, drawn by four or six horses, loaded  down with provisions necessary, to feed  its crew; the bed wagon, containing all  the bedding and camp, equipments; the  horse  wrangler,   who  takes charge  of  the  bunch  of horses to be used in the  work, usually, consisting of  200 to 800  horses.   These horses are -gloved with  the camp, and whenever  a rider wants  a fresh horse he throws a rope into.the  bunch and brings out his animal. Then  follows the  scene  of  "bucking"  and  plunging, for often the bronchi) has to  be  " busted"   before he can be used on  the work. Camp is moved every day, or  at least every second, day, from  five to  eight miles  along' .the ������������������ route.   Every  morning the line  rider foreman leaves  camp with his crew of riders and takes  a course at right angles with the route.  Every half mile or mile he starts a couple of riders to ride parallel with the  route,   to  throw in  all the cattle they  find toward the route and camp.   After  five or, six lines are started out the foreman takes the balance of the riders and  swings around in front to. drive all the  bunches gathered toward camp, coming  in for dinner.  In the afternoon,the same course is  adopted in the opposite direction, and  both sides of the camp are worked. The  cattle gathered are all thrown into one  bunch,, which is known as the * 'cavvy,''  and are, moved along with the camp.  Calves are branded each day; and every  one is branded the same: brand as its  mother, no matter where or who the  owner may be. This part of the work is  done with the greatest care, and every  cowboy is faithful -to this trust.        .  Whenever 4,000 or 5,000 cattle are in  the "cavvy, ''and while cattle are on  their own ranges, the work of "cutting  out" is carried on. In this the peculiar  skill and ability.of the cowboy are drawn  out, and only men of well known ex-  pertness with brands and cattle areyde-  .tailed' to do this work. The cutting  horse must learn his part as well as the  rider. He must, be able to turn about  as quickly' and on less ground" th an any  other and dodge the attacks of the wildest steer with as much ease and grace  as the circus horse. The rider dashes  into the "cavvy" and separates the cattle of each particular brand belonging  on the range they are passing over. He  drives his animal to the outside of the  bunch and dashes back after another.  On the outside are a number of riders  who drive these cattle off to the owner.  Each brand held in this way is driven  back on its own ranch, for these range  cattle become located. This is called  "working the cavvy," and the main  bunch is pushed ahead until everybody's  eattle are cut out and the calves branded.  The cattle have been wandering at will  over the range the last winter and the  work of the roundup will be to separate the cattle bearing the brands of  different owners and to mark the calves  running with the stock, each calf being  given the same brand as that borne by  the cow it is following. To look up all  these cattle it will be * necessary to ride  over a section of country about 135  miles long and 90 miles wide, covering  approximately 12,000 square miles.  PERSONALITIES.

At auction sales of live stock there  are too frequently bogus bidders who  do not want to buy animals at all, but  merely want to run the price up, and it  is a humiliating fact for honest breeders to swallow that these fellows are  sometimes in league with the auctioneer or even the owner of the animals.  Now, without mincing matters, this  bogus bidding is dishonest and only  brings disrepute on auction live stock  sales in general. In every case where  such fraud is practiced the right thing  to do is to leave the animal on the  hands of the bogus bidder and make  him take it.  The man who prepares to sell his  stock at auction should beforehand fix  for each animal a price below which he  will not lee it go. Unless the sum bid  teaobes at least that amount then let  the animal be withdrawn, but bogus  bidding���������never.  Do not feed brood sows too much  corn after they have weaned a litter.

A TANGLED TALE.  carried tho  in London  Edinburgh,  use of pure  That of the Discovery of I'ure Chloroform.  Dumas, the eminent   French   chemist,  originally separated    and   identified   the  sub.-tance, about    1S31,    but, as an anesthetic   it first came into   use in   another  ���������forni some years   later.  , The   success   of  ether was no sooner  established, ,to- the  wonder and delight of the medical world  ���������and, indeed, of the public���������than enterprising   chemists    cast   about   for  other  drugs of like power; and it occurred to a  '"jir.    Jacob   Bell   that , "chloric   ether"  might,answer the purpose.    Dr. Bigelow  seems to have tried it in America   about  the" same time, but without, success.   Mr.  Bell, however, suggested it to Mr. Coote,  one of the surgeons of St. Bartholomew's  and he induced his   colleague,   the great  Lawrence, to try it.     So   the first operation took place under chloroform; but the  substance used, was  chloric   ether, otherwise ' known   as. spirit   of,    chloroform  ���������that is to   say,,  a   mixture  of   chloroform and alcohol.  It did not occur to any  of those concerned that the   alcohol   had  nothing to do with the  effect   produced.  That discovery was reserved   for another  chemist, a Mr. Waldie, ' who  news of what had been done  to Sir   James   Simpson,    at  and suggested   to    him   the  chloroform. Simpson was engrossed with  anesthetics at th0 time, and had some of ,  the new drug prepared for him; but, according tb the account of an eye-witness,'  he only came to use 'it by a   sort of accident.    He was   then   constantly   experimenting on the production   of anesthesia  by all sorts of agents,   with   the  help of  his pupils. Keith and Matthews Duncan,  both destined   to   become   famous men.  They used to meet   of an   evening,   and  test the'various drugs oh   themselves   by  inhaling the vapor from a tumbler.      '    <  One   evening   some : one   produced   a  small bottle of a heavy liquid from under  some lumber, and they proceeded   to put  it to the test with all the recklessness of .  scientific   enthusiasm.    That   night  the  learned conclave   became    a scene of  the  wildest intoxication.    Each   member    of  the party was   found .prostrate   and insensible   upon   the    floor,   or staggering  helplessly about the room, a   convincing  proof of the efficacy of the hew agent.  It  was chloroform,   and   Simpson    lost   no  time   in    applying    it y in   his   practice,  whence its   fame   spread   far and wide.  The story,is sure to be denied   by   somebody; but   whether   true, or not, it is a  good one, and probably not.far   from the  truth.    A legend has grownup and   obtained general currency that Simpson not  only discovered chloroform, but invented  anesthesia.    As a   matter of fact, he did  neither, but,   none   the   less.,'   his  name  deserves to be commemorated in -connection with both.   His high position in the  profession, his ardor in research, boldness  in practice and adroitness in.advocacy all  combined to.render invaluable  service,in '  establishing    the -   use   of   - anesthetics,  which, like   all   innovations,    met   with  much opposition. * It is amusing to   read  the objections   that    used   to be brought  against them in,the early days,.  One was  that   they were"1 sinful   and   contrary   to  divine   ordinance.    Simpson .ingeniously  disposed   of   this   fantastic' scruple     by  pointing out   that the   first operation on  record took   place   under   anesthesia divinely induced, when   a    deep sleep was  made to fall upon Adam   in   order   that  his rib might be taken to form Eve.  Can Have Two Wives.  Italy enjoys at the present moment tha  distinction of being the only civilized  country in Europe where it is possible to  commit bigamy without exposing one's  self to any danger of punishment. Sines  the constitution of the kingdom in 1S70,  says the New York Tribune, the authorities have insisted that ouly a civil marriage is legally binding. On the other  hand, the Church refuses to recognize  this form of matrimonial union as valid,  and requires the faithful to go through  the religious service, venting its displeasure on those who seek any civil sanction  to their alliance.  The Government has repeatedly ��������� tried  to secure the enactment of a law providing for the punishment of ' any priest  who should have performed the religious  marriage service without the latter having been preceded by a civil ceremony.  But the vast body of the people in Italy  are Catholics to the core, and would not  tolerate any measure which had the  appearance of encroaching upon the  rights of the Church. The result is that  to-day large numbers of unscrupulous  people take advantage of this condition  of affairs to have two wives, one iu the  eyes of the Church and the other in the  eyes of the civil authorities. And they  can do this without the slightest danger  of beina; called to account- or of being  punished.  Another Way.

But say, have you heard of the editor's wife;  Of that silent co-partner, who,  With a,blending  of sentiment,   beauty and  ,"    skill,  .Wish a temperate knowledge, tact and will,  ' The whole of his labor can do?  It is she who embroiders the garments  worn  By the editor's hard old chair,   .  Now dressed up with cushions, soft and neat,  Andtrimed up with tidies and ribbons sweet  Which once was so poor and bare.  If the editor's sick, or away or behind;,  In need of more hands ancl more haste,  She directs his wrappers so they can be read,  And writes his leaders righb oat of her head,  And' willingly makes his paste.  She reads the magazines,   papers and books,  As the cradle she softly rocks,  While the editor sits in his easy chair,  With his fingers thrust in   his tangled hair,  She quietly mends his socks.  Then she reads the ads with the editor,  ,   Just to find out what each has paid.  "But the column ad of the jeweler, there,  So he says, ''tiie harness and human hair,  Must be taken out in trade."  So she wears the dresses he gete -tor ads,  And rattles his sewing machine;  She uses the butter and eggs ancl things  The country subscriber  so  faithfully- brings  With a cheerfullnes3 seldom seen.        y  But her life so full of many delights,  Has one dark cloud, alas!  Though she shares  his tickets to   the circus  and play, y.''i  To lectures and negro minstrels gay,.  She can't use his railroad pass!  When time hangs heavy on his hands  She beguiles his hours away  With joke and liughfcrr, music and song,  And pleasant talk, and thus ripples along  The whole of each leisure day.

' ���������Post Wheeler- .in JCew York Press.    -  sees  A MATTES OF VANITY  When I heard that Maud Jeffries was  engaged to Jack Meadows, I took an  early opportunity of congratulating  them both, for they were both old  friends of mine and charming people-  especially Maud. She was an artist and  ' painted very zealously in oil colors. She  was in her studio when I called. So I  went up to it and found her enveloped  in a linen apron covered with the varie-  ' gated colors of her palette. She was  Working at an unfinished painting, and  bo absorbed in it that at first she did  not hear ine enter. When she did, she  turned quickly.      .  "No, it's not Meadows. I'm sorry,"  I said sympathetically.        ' .' ������"  "Oh, but I'm very glad to see you,"  she answered. "And you are just in  time to help me. Do tell me what, is  wrong with this thing," and she pointed to the canvas.  "That   is   Meadows'   privilege,"   I  said.  T offered her my good wishes and  told her I was sure she would be happy.  She  blushed   prettily and said, "We  are very happy now."  "But how have you satisfied your  conscience?" I asked. "I understood  you had vowed yourself to the service  of your art."  "Ob, but I will never give up my  work, "she protested earnestly. "Jack  knows that. He wouldn't want me to.  I think it is bo wrong not to use one's  gifts.    Don't you?"  "Certainly, and  I'm, glad Jack  that.    He must be very proud of you  She hesitated. "I'm afraM he is not  naturally very fond of art," she said,  "but I hope he will soon learn to love  it. ���������.������������������ '���������'-,  " He is really awfully good about it,"  she went on. "He is going to let me  paint his portrait, and then we shall  hang it in our dining room."  ,'.'That will be delightful," I said.  "Look,   here  are   some  sketches for  it," said Maud, drawing out some panels and charcoal drawings.   "Don't you  think they are like'bim?"  I recognized Meadows in spite of the  varying   expressions  Maude , had given'  him   and  said  so   at  once.    She  was  pleased, and just then Meadows came  in.    .  "I am just admiring the studies for  the great portrait," I said genially.  "Ah, yes, they are only rough sketches. The thing itself will be quite different, won't it, darling?" he said, with,  I imagined, a shade of anxiety.  "Mr. Bailer thinks they are excellent  likenesses, Jack," she said happily.  He looked at me sharply, but I boldly repeated my' opinion.  A fortnight or so passed before I saw  anything of Meadows or Maud, then I  met Meadows. He looked worried, and  when I asked him after Miss Jeffries he  said shortly, "I believe she is quite  well, thanks."  "Ancl how is the portrait going on?"  "It's not going on at all at present,"  he answered.  "How's that? Is she dissatisfied with  it?"  "No, she's not," he said, emphasizing the pronoun.  "Surely you are pleased?" said I.  "Look here, JRaller," he said, with a  burst of confidence. "That wretched  portrait is undermining my happiness.  It's no more like me than that poster,"  and he pointed to a flaming placard.  "I'm not a vain chap, you know, but I  do bar being handed down to posterity  looking like a criminal lunatic."  "But it can't be as bad as that? Maud  would never do you injustice," I said.  "Not   intentionally, but  she  swears  to the good likeness, though I can't see  how she can.    When I suggested it was  a   bit  unflattering, she  said she  must  paint what she saw, and that she could  not tamper with the truth of art. I just  laughed   and  said,  joking,   that  there  was   room   for a little more truth, and  then she was hurt and   said she had no  idea that men could bo so vain."  "And you left it at that?"  "Yes,   if   you   saw   the   thing   you  wouldn't be surprised."  .'���������I should like to see it," I said.  "Come along then.   Maud is out this  afternoon, her   sister  told  me so.    We  will go to her studio, and you can give  me your unbiased opinion. "  So we went together and climbed up  to Maud's painting room. The portrait,  still wet, was on the easel. Meadows  pointed to it in eloquent silence. I was  silent too. It was so painfully realistio  that it verged on caricature.  "Well," said Meadows, "could you  live in the same house with it if it were  your portrait?"  "One might get used to it in time, "I  answered.  "Yet she is fond of you," I said.  "Surely if you ask her to suppress it as  e personal favor"���������  "She would only say it was my vanity," he answered gloomily. "Thereds  nothing to be done. She must choose  between me and my portrait, unless"���������  "Unless what?" I asked as he paused.  "You could persuade her. Tell-her it  doesn't do her justice, either of us justice. Do, there's a good fellow. She has  no end of respect for you."  I could not resist his appeal and  promised to do my best. "And surely  that is she coming up the stairs now,"  said I as we heard footsteps.  " Yes. Well, speak to her now,'' Baid  Meadows. - ;  He left me alone in the studio as  Maud entered.  She greeted me with a weary smile  and glanced directly at the portrait.  "You have been looking at it?" she  asked, mechanically taking up her palette and brushes.  "Yes," I said, and she seemed to expect,me to say more.  "It's a good likeness, isn't it?" she  remarked presently.  "It is too flattering," I answered, sitting down opposite it. ",  She looked at me suspiciously, but  my face was full of innocence. " Jack  doesn't, think so," she said.  "But he is so absurdly vain," said I.  "Not more than other men, I suppose, "she retorted. '  . Her back was toward me and I could  see her listlessly dabbing at the background of the, portrait. "Yet you say  he is not satisfied with that painting,"  I said.  "What fault can he find?"  ' 'Nothing definite; but he wants me  to alter it."  "However painful it may be, you  must keep your art pure. It is true that  in the noble cause of realism you have  accentuated his worse points"������������������  ''No, I haven'ir,'' she said with some  heat.'  "I honor you for it. Very few girls  would have.had the courage to treat the  portrait of a lover in so bold a way,  even to the suggestion of oaricature."  "But you said I had flattered him,"  she cried. ��������� '  "Truth is the highest flattery," I answered sententiously. '' And if Meadows  be not high minded enough to see it you  will not regret his loss. "  "His loss? What do you mean?" she  exclaimed.  "I saw him just now; ��������� He does not  appreciate your noble self sacrifice. He  said if you had really loved him you  would not have pointed out his homeliness to the world. He seemed to feel it  a good deal."  "Homeliness! He is beautiful!" she  cried indignantly.        y .  "Really, my dear young lady, you  can't say that with that almost speaking likeness in front of us," and I  pointed to the portrait. ���������'..."."������������������..  With a sudden movement she smudged  a brushful of paint over the face on the  canvas.  "What are you doing? Are you mad?"  I.said.  "No, cot now."  "But remember the fine technique."  For an  instant she paused���������but only  for   an   instant.    Then  she   took some  more paint and rubbed it violently over  the  portrait.    I saw Meadows  looking  round the door and beckoned him in.  "Your portrait is done for," I said.  She threw down her palette.    " Jackl  Look  at  it!"   she   cried, with a laugh  that seemed to catch in her throat.  There is now hanging in the Meadows' dining room a portrait of the master of the house. It is not at all a good  painting, but Jack gazes at it with satisfaction. It is by his wife, and when  her friends suggest that she has flattered her husband she smiles.  Once I saw her looking at it rather  sadly and I asked her if she were regretting the one she had destroyed. Perhaps  it was an indiscreet question.  She shook her head. "No, sometimes  I think I acted hastily, for it really was  good," she said.  "But surely this one is, on the whole,  better?" said I.  "Jack thinks so," she answered, .and  she sighed.���������Westminster Budget.  ���������Tcs or No?"  A pretty story of how Henry M. Stanley wooed and won Miss Dorothy Ten-  nant, though coming to us from private  sources, has been made sufficiently public to avert the charge of undue personality. Miss Tennant, it is well known,  was the original of Sir John Millais'  famous picture, "Yes or No?" It seems  that Stanley bad asked tho question,  and the reply was "No. "  The great explorer went to Africa  again, and after several years "returned  to London, to find himself the most talked of man of the day.  The thought of Misa Tennant was  still uppermost in his mind, and he  resolved that his first visit should be to  her home. In his impatience for the  morrow he turned over the cards and  notes with which the table was strewn,  and selecting one haphazard decided to  while away the time by attending a certain reception.  The first person he met there waB  Miss Tennant. They greeted each other  formally, but later in the evening Stanley retired to a small anteroom, to find  that Miss Tennant had likewise sought  solitude. A somewhat embarrassing silence ensued, broken at last by the  woman saying, with tbe manner of  one "making conversation:"  "Do you find London muoh changed,  Mr. Stanley?"  "No,I haven't found London changed,  and I've not changed either," returned  the  explorer, with   his usual  intrepid  ity.  "Have yon?"  "Yes, I've changed," answered Miss  .Tennant softly.  A   few days  later Millais  received a  note from his former subject, beginning:  ���������..

"Yes."  "Well, it did. You're the seventh man  who has asked mo that question today.  I'm getting tired of answering it." And  he plunged his nose into his mass of correspondence once more.  Twenty minutes later Mr. Boundollar  had exchanged money for some neatly executed engraving on bond paper. In a  few days Mr. Boundollar called at Ruff-  edge's office, and, taking a chair, glared at  him with silent reproach for several minutes.  "I suppose  you're thinking about that  flying  machine," said   Mr. Ruffedge uneasily.  "lam."  "You're not the only one who has been  here this morning. I admit that I ought  to have taken more time to explain, but I  was very busy that day."  "You said that it had traveled all the  way here from Chicago."  "Yes, and it had.

We  have, however,  in Quinine   Wine,   when  obtainable   in    a   'sound    unadulterated  state, a remedy for many and gfe'vfons ills.  By its   gradual   and   judicious   use,   tha  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 the nerves,  disposes to sound and refreshing   sleep-  imparts vigor to the action  of the   blood,  which, being stimulated, courses throughout the veins,  strengthening the healthy  animal functions of the system,  thereby  making     activity   a    necessary     result,  strengthening the frame, and giving life  to the digestive  organs, which naturally  demand increased substance���������result,  improved appetite.

"What wilt thou have of honor,  of   reward   or  reverence   or   service   of  national and international   acclamation?  What wilt thou, the queen of   the   nineteenth   century?"'    Tlie   seven   miles , of  procession through the streets of London  day after to-morrow will be a small  part  of the   congratulatory   procession   whose  ' multitudinous ��������� tramp   will   encircle the  earth.  The celebrativo anthems that''will''  sound Up from  'Westminster'   abbey  arid  St. Paul's cathedral   in   London  will be  ' less than the vibration of one harp string,  as compared with the   doxologies   which  this hour roll   up. from    all   nations   in  praise to God for   the   beautiful life and  th? glorious   reign   of   this oldest queen  amid centuries., From   5   o'clock   of the  morning of 1S37,   when   the   archbishop  of Canterbury addressed the embarrassed  and weeping and almost   affrighted   girl  of 18   years   with    tho   startling   words,  "your majesty," until this sixtieth anniversary of her enthronement,' the   prayer  of all good people on all. side of the seas,  whether   that   prayer   be   offered by the  300,000,000 of her subjects or the, larger  number of millions who aro not her-subjects, whether that prayer bo  solemnized  in church, or rolled   from '"great   brches-  \ tras or poured   forth by" military   bands  i from forts and battlements and in   front  of triumphant armies all around the  world, has been and is now, "God save  the queen!" Amid the innumerable columns that have been printed in eulogy  of this queen at the apnroaching anniversary���������columns which, put to gether,  would bo literally miles long���������ic seems  to me that the chief caii.se of congratulation to her and of praise to God has not  yet been properly emphasized, and in  many cases the chief keynotey has nor.  been struck at all.  ^   We have been told over and o'vei* again  what has .occurred in the   Victorian   era.  The mijghtiest   thing   she   has   done'has-  been .-almost ignored, .while, she has bcv.n  honored by having her name  attached to-  individuals and : events   for ....whom'   ami,  for which   sho had no responsibi 1 i ty. -.-We  have put   before us   the names of. potyjc  and'grandly useful men and women who  have lived during   her   reign,    but   I do  not   suppose,^ chat   she   at   all      helped  Thomas Carlyle in twisting 'his  in volvetl  and   mighty satires,   or; helped   Disraeli  in issuance or his. epigrammatic   wit, or  helped Cardinal Newman in his crossing  over from religion to religion,   or helped  to inspire the   enchanted   sentiments    of  'George Eliot and Harriet  Martineau and  Mrs. Browning, or   helped to invent any  of George    Cruikshank's   healthful    cartoons, or helped George Grey in founding  a   British   South   African     empire,     or  kindled the   patriotic-  fervor with which  John Bright stirred   the   masses, or had  anything to do with the invention of the  telephone or photograph, or the  building  up of the science of   bacteriology,   or'the  directing   of the   Roentgen   rays  which  have   revolutionized'   surgery,    or helped  in the inventions for facilitating printing  and railroading and ocean voyaging.  One  is not to be credited   or   discredited   for  the   virtue or the vice, the   brilliance   or  the   stupidity, of his or   her   contemporaries.  While Queen Victoria has been the  friend   of    all   art,    all   literature,    all  science, all   invention,    all   reform,   her  reign will be most   remembered   for   all  time and   all   eternity   as   the   reign of  Christianity.    Beginning with the   scene  at 5 o'clock in the morning in   Kensington palace, where   she   asked   the   archbishop of Canterbury to pray for her, and  they knelt down, imploring divine guidance, until this   hour,    not    only   in the  sublime'   liturgy     of   cher     established  church,   but   on   all   occasions,   she has  directly or indirectly declared, "I believe  She admires the hymns of Horatio Bonar  more than she does Byron's "Corsair."  She has not knowingly admitted into  her presence a corrupt man or dissolute  woman. To very distinguished novelists  and very celebrated prima donnas she has  declined reception because they were  immoral. AH the coming centuries of  time cannot revoke the advantages of  having had 60 years of. Christian womanhood inthroned in the palaces of England. Compare her court., surroundings  wiih What were the court surroundings  in t;k* time of Henry VIII, or what were  the court surroundings in the time of  iNapoieon, in the time, of Louis XVI, in  theitimes of men and women whose  names may not be mentioned in decent  society; Aias f������v *ha revelries, and the  worse than Belshazzar feasts, and the  more than Herodian dances, and the  scenes from which the veil must not be  lifted.  -".��������� ,,'    ���������������������������  You need, however, in order to   appreciate the purity and virtuous splendor of  Victoria's reign to contrast   it somewhat  with the gehennas and   the   pandemoniums of many of  the   thronerooms of the  past and some of. the thronerooms   of the  present.    I call   the roll of the queens of  the earth, not that   I   would   have them  come up or come   back,   but that I may  make them the background   of a  picture  in which I can better present the present  septuagenarian, so so.in to be an octogen-  .arian, now   on   the   throne of England,,  her example   so   thoroughly on the right  side that all the scandal  .mongers   in all  the nations in six decades have  not been'  able to manufacture an evil,  suspicion0 in  regard to   her   that   could   'be   made,  to  stick: Maria   of   Portugal,   Isabella and  Eleanor and. Joanna of Spain,   Catherine  of   Russia,    Mary   of   Scotland,    'Maria  Theresa of Germany,    Marie   Antoinette'  of France and all the queens of England,.'  as Miss Strickland   has   put them before  us in her   charming    12   volumes.    And  while   some   queen   may     surpass   our  modern queen in learning,   and   another  in attractiveness of feature, and : another  in gracefulness of   form, and  another in  romance of   history,   Victoria' surpasses  them all in nobility   and   grandeur   and  thoroughness of   Christian   character.    I  hail her,   the    Christian   daughter,    the  Christian wife, tlie Christian mother, the  Christian queen* and'1' let   the   church of  God and all benign and gracious institutions the   world over   cry   out,    as they  come, with music and bannered host and  million   voiced   huzza   and   the benedictions of earth and   heaven.    "What   wilt  thou, Queen Esther?"  Life Uncorrupted.'  Another thing I call.to your. attention  in this illustrious woman's career is-that  she is a specimen of high life uncorrupted. Would she have lived to celebrate  the sixtieth anniversary of her coronation  and   the   seventy-eighth   anniversary   of  almost ascetic, under a good. Providence,  account for her magnificent longevity. It  may be a   homely lesson   for   a sexagesimal anniversary in British places, but iti  is worth   all the millions   of dollars   the \  celebration will   cost . and the   laborious  convocation of the   representatives   from  all the* zones of the plaaet if the   nations  will, learn''..the....sanitary   lesson   of good  hours,   plain   food,   out   door   exercise,  reasonable abstinence and common sense  habits.    That   which   Paul   said   to the  jailer is just as   appropriate for you and  for me, "Do thyself no harm." And here  let me   say, no  people outside   of   Great  Britain ought   to   be more interested   in  this queen's-jubilee than our nation.  The  cradles, of most   of   our   ancestors   were  rocked in Great Britain.  They   played in  childhood on the banks of   the   Thames,  or the Clyde, or the Shannon. Take from  my veins the Welsh blood and the Scotch  blood, and the streams of my   life would  be a shallow.  Great Britain is our grandmother.    We   have   read   in   the family  records that without our   grandmother's  consent her daughter/our   mother,    left  home and married the genius of   American independence, and   for  awhile there  was bitter estrangement   But the family  quarrel has ended, and all has been   forgiven, and we   shake   hands, every   day  her birthday, had she not been' an example of good, principals and good habits? While there have been bad men arid  women in exalted station and humble  station who have carried their vices  clear on into tho seventies arid eighties  and even the nineties' of their lifetime,  such persons are very rare; The majority  of the .vicious die in their thirties, and  fewer reach the forties, and they are .exceedingly scarce in the fifties. Longevity-  has not been the characteristic of tlie  most of those who have reached high  places in that or this country. In'many  cases their wealth leads them into indulgences, or their honors make them reckless, or their opportunities of doing  wrong are multiplied into the overwhelming, and it is as true now as when  the Bible first presented it, "The wicked  Jive not out half their days." Longevity  is not a positive   proof   of goodness, but  in God. the Father Almighty, maker of  heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ,  his only begotten Son.'' I declare it, fearless of contradiction, that the mightiest  champion of Christianity to-day is the  throne ot England.  The queen's book, so much criticised  at the time of its appearance, some saying it was not skillfully done and some  saying that the private affairs of a household ought not so to have been exposed,  was nevertheless a hook of vast usefulness from the fact that it showed that  God was acknowledged in all her life  and that "Rock of Ages" was not an unusual song in Windsor castle. Was her  son, the Prince of Wales, down with an  illness that balllcd the greatest doctors of  England? Then sho proclaimed a day  of prayer to Almighty God, and in answer to tho prayers of the whole civilized  world the prince got well. Was Sevastopol to be taken, and the thousands of  bereaved homos of soldiers to be comforted? She called her nation to its  knees, and the jirayer was answered. See  her walking through the hospitals like  an angel of mercy I Was there ever an explosion of fire damp in tfee mines of  Sheffield or Wales and her telegram was  not the first to arrive with help and  Christian sympathy? Is President Garfield dying at Long Branch, and is not  the cable under the sea, reaching to Balmoral castle, kept busy in announcing  the symptoms of the sufferer?  Victoria's Throne.   *  I believe that no throne since the  throne of David, and the throne of Heze-  kiah, and the throne of Esther has been  in such constant touch with the throne  of heaven as the throne of Victoria. From  what I know of her habits she reads the  Bible more   than   she does Shakespeare.  -.it-is prima facie, evidence in   that   direction.    A loose life has killed hundreds of  eminent Americans and Europeans.    The  doctors are very kind, and the  certificate  given   after   the   distinguished   man   of  dissipation .is vlead, says, "Died   of   congestion of the braiu,"   although   it   was  delirium tremens,   or "Died   of cirrhosis  of the liver," although   it   was  around  of libertinism, or   ".Vied   of   heart  failure," although it was the   vengeance   of  outraged law   that slew   him.    Thanks,  doctor, for you are   r-ight   in   saving tha  fee-lings of the bereft   household   by  not  being   more specific.    Look,    all   ye who  are in high places of   the   earth, and see  one who has been plied by all the temptations which wealth and   honor   and the  secret place   of   palaces   could   produce,  and yet next Tuesday she will ride along  in the presence   of   7,-000,000   people,    if  they can get within sight of her chariot,  in a vigorous   old age, no   more hurt by  the splendors that have   surrounded   her  for 7S years   than    is- the  plain country  woman come down from    her- mountain  home in an oxcart to attend   the   Saturday marketing.  The temptations' of social  life among the successful class have been  so great that every winter is a   holocaust  of human nerves, and the beaches of this'  tossing sea of   high   life   are   constantly  strewn   with   physical    and    mental and  moral shipwreck.   Beware, all ye successful ones.    Take a good look at the vener*-  able queon as she rides   through   Regent  street and along the .Strand and through  Trafalgar   square   and     by    the   Nelson  mounumont.     What is    the   use   of your  dying at 40, when you may   just as well  live to be SO?  If you aro doing   nothing   for   God or  the race, tho sooner you quit    the better.  But if you are   worth   anything   for the  world's betterment,    in   the   strength of  God and through good   habits, lay  out a  plan for a life that    will    reach   through  most of   a century.      Plow many   people  are practically suicides from the fact that  their gormandizing or   their recklessness  or their defiance   of   dietetics and   plain  sanitYiry law cuts short  their   days I    la-  deed, so great is the temptation   of those  who have bountiful tables   and full wine  closets that ��������� Solomon   suggests   that instead of putting the knife into the   meat  on their plate they   direct   the edge of it  across their   throat.    Proverbs   xxiii,   1,  "When thou sittest to eat with   a   ruler,  consider diligently   what   is beforp  thee,  and put a knife to thy throat if thou   be  a man given to appetite." I believe more  people die of improper eating than die of  strong   drink.     Tho   former   causos    no  delirium or   violenco   and    works   more  gradually,    but   none   the   less  fatally.  Queen Victoria's habits, self denying and  across the seas  At this queenly anniversary our authorized representative will offer greoting  in Buckingham palace,' and our warships  will thunder congratulation in English  waters.

Again, this international occasion impresses me with the fact that woman is  competent for political government when  God calls her to it. Great fears have been  experienced in this country that woman  would get the right of suffrage, and as a  consequence,.after awhile, woman might  get into congressional chair, and, perhaps  after awhile, reach the chief magistracy.  Awful! Well, better quiet your perturbations, as you look across the sea, in this  anniversary time, and behold a woman  who for 60 years has ruled over the  mightiest empire of all time and ruled  well. In approval of her government,  the hands of all nations are clapping,  the flags of all nations are waving, the  batteries of all nations booming. Look  here! Men have not made such a wonderful success of government that they  need be afraid that women should ever  take a turn at power. The fact is that  men have made a bad in ess of it. The  most damnably corrupt thing on earth  is American politics after men have had  it all their ownwayin 'this country for  ,121 years. Other things being equal, for  there are fools among women as well as  among men���������I say other things being  equal, woman has genorally a keener  flense of vWiat is right and what is wrong  than .has man���������-has naturally more faith  in God and knows better how to make  self sacrifices and would more boldly act  against intemperance and the social evil,  and worse things might come to this  country than a supreme courtroom and a  'senate chamber and a house of representatives in which womanly voices were  sometimes heard. ;  We men had better drop some of the  strut out of our pompous gait and with  a little less of superciliousness thrust the  thumbs into the sleeves of our vests and  be less apprehensive of the other sex,  who seem to be the Lord's favorite from  the fact that he has made more of them.  If woman had possessed .an influential  and controlling vote on Capitol hill at  Washington and in the English parliament, do you think that the two ruffian  and murderous nations of the earth  could have gone on until this time with  the butcheries in Armenia and Cuba?  No! The Christian nations would have  gone forth with bread and medicine and  bandages and military relief, until Abdul  Hamid would have had no throne to sit  on, and Weyler, the commanding assassin  in Cuba, would have been thrust into a  prison as dark as that in which they  murdered Dr. Ruiz I am no adovcate  for female suffrage, and I do not know  whether it would be best to have it, but  I point you to the queen of Great Britain and the nation over which she' rules  as proof; that woman may be politically  dominant and prosperity reign. God save  the queen, whether now, on the throne  in Buckingham palace, or in' some time  to come in American White House.  And now I pray God that day after  to-morrow the uncertain skies of England, so economic of sunshine, may pour  golden light upon all the scene, and that  since the day when in Westminster abbey,  the girlish queen took in one hand the  scepter and in the other the orb of empire,  there may have been no day so happy as  that one in which she shall this week  receive tho plaudits of Christendom. May  she be strengthened in her aged body to  ride the whirlwind of international excitement and her failing vision be illumined with bright memories of the past  and brighter visions of the future, and  when she quits the throne of earth may  she have a throne in heaven, and as the  doors of the eternal palace are swung  open, may the question of the text sound  in her enraptured ears, "What wilt thou,  Queen Esther?"  Two Coronations.  But as all of us will be denied attendance on that sixtieth anniversary coronation I invite you, not to the anniversary  of a coronation, but to a coronation itself  ���������aye, to two coronations. Brought up  as we are, to love as no other form of  government that which is republican and  democratic, we living on this side of the  sea cannot so easily as those living on the  other side of the sea appreciate the two  coronations to which all up and down  the Bible you and I are urgently invited.  Some of you have such morbid ideas  of religion that you think of it as going  down into a dark cellar, or out on a  barren commons, or as a flagellation,  when, so far from a dark cellar, it is a  palace, and instead of a barren commons  it is a garden, atoss with the brightest  .���������fountain's that .were ever rainbowed; and  ��������� instead of flagellation it is coronation,  but a coronation utterly eclipsing the one  whose sixtieth anniversary is now being  celebrated. It was a great day when  David, the little king who was large  enough to thrash'Goliath, took tbe crown  at, Rah bah���������a crown weighing a talent,  of gold and encircled with precious  stones���������and the people shouted, "Long  live the king!" It was a great day when  Petrarch, surrounded by 12 patrician  youths clothed in scarlet, received from  a senator, the. laurel crown, and the peo-  pl.i shouted, "Long live the poet-!" It  was a great day when Mark Antony put  upon Caesar the mightiest tiara of all  the earth, and in honor of divine authority Caesar had,: it placed afterward on  the head of the statue of Jupiter Olyirius.  It was a great day When the greatest of  Frenchmen took the diadem of Charlemagne and put it on his own brow. It  was a great day when, about an eighth  of a mile from the gate of Jerusalem,  under a sky pallid with thickest darkness, and on a, mountain trammeled of  earthquake, and the air on Are with the  blasphemies of a mob, a crown of spikes  was put upon the pallid and agonized  brow of our Jesus. But, that particular  coronation, amid tears and blood and  groans and shivering cataclysms, made  your own coronation possible.  Paul was,not a man to lose his equilibrium, but when, that old missionary,  with crooked back and inflamed eyes,  got a glimpse of the crown coming to  him and coming to you, if you will by  repentance and faith accept it,-he went  into ecstasies, and his poor eyes flashed  and his crooked bask straightened as he  cried to Timothy, '"There is laid up ior  me a crown of righteousness,-" and to the  Corinthians, "These athletes run to 'obtain a corruptible, we an incorruptible'  crown." And to the Thessalonians he  speaks of "the crown.of glory," and to  the Philippians he says, ."My joy and  crown. " The Apostle Peter catches the  inspiration and cries out, "Ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not  away," and St., John joins in the rapture  and Says, "Faithful to death, and I will  give thee a crown of life," and elsewhere  exclaims, "Hold fast, that no man take  thy crown." Crowns, crowns, crowns 1  You did not expect in coming here today, to be invited to a coronation. You  can scarcely believe your   own   ears, but  in the.name of a pardoning God. and a  sacrificing Christ, -and an omnipotent  Holy Spirit, and a triumphant heaven I  offer each one a crown for the asking.  Crowns, crowns! How to get the crown?  The way Victoria.got her crown���������on her  knees. Although eight duchesses and  marquises, all in cloth of silver, carried  her train, and the1 windows and arches  and roof of the abbey shook with the  "Te Deum" of the organ in full diapason, .she had to kneel, she. had to  come down. To get the crown of pardon  and eternal life you will have to kneel,'  you will have to come down. Yea! History says that at her coronation not only  ��������� the entire assembly wept with profound  emotion, but Victoria was in tears. So  you will have to have your dry eyes moistened with tears, in your case, tears of  repentance, tears of joy, tears . of coronation, and you will feel like crying out  with Jeremiah, "Oh, that my head were  waters and, mine eyes fountains of tears."  Yes, she was during the ceremony seated  for awhile on a lowly stone called the  Lia Fail, which, as I remember it, as I  have seen it again and again, was rough  and not a foot high, a lowly and humble  place in which to be seated', and if you  are to be crowned king or queen to God  forever, you must be seated on the Lia.  Fail of profound.humiliation.  After all that she   was   ready   for the  throne, and let me say   that   God   is not  going to leave your exaltation half done.  There are   thrones   as   well   as   crowns  awaiting you.    .St. John shouted, "I saw  thrones!" and again he said, "They shall  reign   forever     and     ever..'..'..-. ���������_���������-Thrones!  Thrones !    Get ready for the   coronation.  But I invite   you   not   only to your own  coronation, but   to a   mightier   and   the  mightiest.    In   all   the   ages of time no  one ever had such a.hard time   as Christ  while   he was on earth.  Brambles for his  brow, expectoration for his  cheek, whips  for his back, spears   for   his  side, spikes  for his feet, contumely for his name, and  even in our time, how many say he is no  Christ at all, and there are tens  of thousands of hands trying to push   him back  and keep him down.  But, oh, the human  and satanic impotency! Can a spider stop  an albatross?    Can   the   holo   which   the  toy shovel of a child digs in   the sand at  Cape May   swallow   the   Atlantic?    Can  the breath of a summer  fan   drive   back  the   Mediterranean     euroclydon?      Yes,  when all the   combined    forces    of earth,  and hell can keep Christ from  ascending  the throne of universal dominion.   David  .the   psalmist   foresaw   tliat   coronation,  and cried out in regard   to    the Messiah,  "Unto himself shall his crown'flourish."  From the cave of black   basalt   St. John  foresaw it, and cried,  "On his head were  many   crowns."    Now   do   not miss tho  beauty of that figure.    There is no   room  in any head foi'   more than one crown of  silver, gold or diamond.   Then what does  the book mean when   it   says,    "On   his  head   were   many    crowns?"      Well,    it  means twisted and    enwreathed   flowers.  To prepare a   crown   for   your child and  make her the "queen of   the   May," you  might take the white flowers   out of one  parterre, and the crimson    flowers out of  another parterre, and   the   blue    flowers  out of   another   parterre,    and   the pink  flowers   out   of   another   parterre,    and  gracefully and skillfully work these  four  or five crowns into one crown of beauty.  So all the splendors of earth and   heaven  are to be enwreathed into one coronal for  our Lord's forehead���������one   blazing  glory,  one dazzling brightness,   one overpowering perfume, one down flashing, up rolling, outspreading   magnificence���������and   so  on his head shall be many crowns.  Cross and Crown.  The world's best music will yet be  sounded in his praise, the world's best  architecture built for his worship, the  world's best paintings descriptive of his  triumphs, the world's best sculpture perpetuate the memory of his heroes and  heroines. Already the crown woven out  of many crowns   is being   put upon   his  brow.  His scarred feet are already ascending the   throne.    A   careful   statistician  estimates that in 1950 chere will be 170,-  000,000 people in the United   States, and  by the present ratio   of uniting with the  church 100,000,000 of them will be church  members.    What   think   ye   of   that, ye  pessimists inspired by the devil? the deadest failure in the universe is .the kingdom  of satan.  The grandest throne of all time  and all eternity is the one that Christ   ia  now mounting.    The most of us will not  see tne consummation of this world, but  -we will gaze on it from    the   high   heavens.     The morning of that   consummation will arrive, and what   a   stir in the  holy city!   ,A11   the   towers   of gold will  ring   Its.-arrival.   .All   the   chariots will  roll into   line.      The. armies   of heaven  which'John .saw seated on   white   horses  passing in   infinite   cavalcade     The   inhabitants of Europe, Asia, Africa,, North  and South America and of   all islands of  the. sea, and   perhaps   of   other'worlds,  will join in a procession,   compared with.  which   that   of   next   Tuesday   will not  make   one' battalion.

Until  tho choirs standing on "the sea   of  glass  mingled with fire" shall   sound,   the triumph in more jubiliant  strains,'   accompanied by harpers with, their   harps   and  trumpeters   with    their     trumpets,    the  hundred   and   forty and   four   thousand  .  coming into the chorus,   I think we will  stick to Isaac   Watts'   old    hymn, which  the 5,000   natives   of   Tonga,    Fiji   and  .Samoa sang   when, they   gave   up their  idolatries for   Christianity, and   I would  not be surprised to see somo   of   you old  heroes of the cross, who for   a.  life   timo  have been foiling in the: service, beating  time withvyour right hand, a little tremulous with many years:���������  Jesus shall reign where'er'the sun"'.-���������..,  Does his sucessive journeys run; -  His kingdom stretch from shore to shore  Till suns shall rise and set no more.

THE STATEMENT OF A LADY WHO  WAS A DYSPEPTIC. '  Afflicted With Pains in the Stomach, Nausea and Vomiting-���������Constipation, Headaches and Other Distressii'B Symptom*  Followed.  From Le Sorelois, Sorel, Que. \  '���������;y."..-'...' .'"..".'' '���������:'" i  Dyspepsia and kindred disorders of the  digestive organs are becoming   alarming  ly  .prevalent'   among   the., people of, all  classes, and it is   safe   to say that   there  are few ills   afflicting..- mankind productive of more real misery than indigestion.  It is said that happiness and   a good  digestion go hand in    hand, and th9 statement contains more truth than has  been  generally admitted.      It'may- be   safely  said,    therefore, thac the   medicine   that  will cure dyspepsia is a blessing to  mankind, a promoter   of   human   happiness,  whose good work   cannot be   too  widely  known.  Such is the   opinion    of Mrs. P.  Lussier, of Sorel, Que., and it is because  of this that she gave the folowing   statement to a representative of   Le Sorelois.  "For some time   past, "she said,. "I had  been suffering   fro.n    a   malady that   at  first I could not d>iiine, but which proved  to be a.severe attack of dyspepsia. ' After  each meal I felt a sensation of   over fullness, even   when I had eaten   most sparingly.  This feeling was accompanied-  by  severe pains   in the region ot   the stomach,and frequently by nausea, and sometimes vomiting.      Constipation followed,  which added to my misery. In the in terra! I suffered from fever and slight headache   and became   generally    indisposed.  At times   the   pain in the   stomach was  less severe.   My appetite was leaving me,  I had no taste for anything and   at   this  stage my son, Alfred, assistant   manager  of Le Sorelois urged   me   to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, at the same timo  urging me to read an   article   in   that paper  which related to    the   cure of   a   person  similarly afflicted.      I was skeptical and  did not believe the pills would help   me,  but a few days later I re-read the   article  and decided that I would try this   medicine and I have much   reas"n .to  be glad  that laid so.  I took a couple of Dr. Williams' Pink   Pills   after each    meal and  little by little perceived that my dig-.-stion  was becoming more   easy.      I continued  more than  the use of the pills for a litrU  a month, and have   pleasur.*  that my cure is complete.  At  in   stating  my age (06  being able  bless    the  years) ony greatly appreciates  to enjoy one's    meals, and    I  day   I began to   use   Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills, and    I heartily recomend   them to  other sufferers."  Dr. Williams' Pink'Pills euro indigestion, rheumatism, neuralgia, locomotor  ataxia, St. Vitus' dance, nervous headache and prostration, diseases of tho  blood, such as scrofula, chronic erysipelas, and restores pale and sallow complexions to the glow of health. They are  a sp-'ciflc for all the troubles peculiar to  tho female sex, and in men cure all cases  arising from worry, overwork, or excesses.
