(  Mr Bourassa's subject was Great  Britain and Canada.     He took occasion to make a violent attack  on  Great   Britain  for   jthe   action   in  Sou'h Africa     He said it was   unjustifiable, and due to MrChambei-  lain and a few others. He ridiculed  Mr Chamberlain   and   the   Royal  family," and said the war had shown  how weak Great Britain really was.  The English army  was   worthless,  and it was  not   known   what   the  nivy was worth, as it had not been  tried.    No nation was  now   afraid  of Gr.eat Britain.  He denounced the acceptance of  titles by Canadians, and said the  constitution should be so amended  as to prevent Canadians accepting ,  Imporial honors. He believed a  connection should be maintained  between Canada and Great Britain.  He did not believe in independence  or -Annexation, as the : latter would  be death to the French race.,; J  fire remaining.

Every  three months, food is carried to the  graveyard until such" time as   the  bones bleach and are  gathered   up  for shipment to China.     The Chinese belief is that the dead must be  fed, and four meals a'yea&ftre. con-  sidered sufficient.   Tho viands -conr  sist of roast pork,  ducks, chickens,  rice and gin.   The food was formerly left at, or on the  graveside, "but  now, it is left just long   enough   to  let the dei.d know   that   they   axe  there, and then   it   is   carried   off  again to   Chinatown.

She was  so terribly, eager about it-that he acceded  to her wishes and remained with her iu  the painting room, for slie-.painted beautifully, in oils, and was copying n picture  of the 'Misers' w;hicu was at .Hblkbam.  ttuMhe"afternoon was excessively beautiful, aud Lady Ando.verV strong ,iuirn'us-  sion, which had been so'vivid in the morn- '  ing, then scemocl to",wear off, till at last  she said:    'Well, really, perhaps I have  been selfish in keeping you from what you  like so much because "of "niy own' impressions; so now, if you care about' going out,*  don't let me keep you in anyjonger.' And  -ho, said: 'Well,,if you don't.mind, I should  certainly "likec to",go,,*-,and he went.,' He.  had not been gone long before Lady Au-  dovei-js impressions returned just as vividly as evc'r,*and she rushed "up stairsjiud,.  put on he'r bonnet and pursued him.

"And there-at* thef door  stood tbe-butler, wih a knife in one, hand  and a candle iri the other., \And when he'  suddenly saw Lady Vernori-in-her white  nightdress, with ber hair streaming down  her back, he was so dreadfully'frightened"  that ho dropped the candle on the floor  and rushed'off down the, sfaircase and off  to the stables, where there was a* horse  ready saddled  and bridled, on which he  meant, to have fidden away when he had  murdered   Lady  Vernon.     And  be  rode'  away without ever having murdered her  at  all," and he was never,  never,  never  heard of again.       ~s  .Lord Denbigh sent the following ^story  to Mr. Hare ^of a supernatural vision  which he had heard from Henry Malet  in 1SG9: In the winter of ,1854"-5 Malet  was in Paris and saw a good deal of,  Palgrave Simpson, the dramatic author.  One evening after a dinner Simpson-expressed himself a-believer in clairvoyant  phenomena. A few days afterward Malet received an order to return to London  and hold himself in readiness.to embark  for the Crimea .with his regiment.- On  the night before his departure' for Malta  he received a note from Simpson  inclos-  external harm." Malet slipped the ring  on his finger without attaching any great  importance to the matter and the next  morning sailed from Portsmouth. We  will let him tell tbe remainder of the  story: -, '  "We touched at Gibraltar, but it was  not till our arrival at Malta'that I heard  from my family.,. Then I found a letter  fiom iny, mother dated from Frankfort on '*  the very day of,our���������sailitfg from England:  It said: 'I have been quite broken hearted  about you, and could find no comfort any- r  j.where.'-but now,������aIl is changed, for a mostr  extraordinary reason. -'This morhing'as;I  lay^iii bed in broad daylight and after my  maid had brought my hot water, just as  r was about to got up, a most, beautiful  young'lady, very fair and dressed in gray  silk(i drew aside the curtain of my" bed ^  and leaned over'me and-said:    "Do not  be unhappy aboutyouryson; no harm shall  happen to him."    I am*, quite certain I  have'had a vision, yet it,seemed as if I  were awake; certainly I was so the moment before7'this happened.

''On receipt of this letter  I bethought me of the ring, and begged ^  my mother in reply to describe minutely  tlie'appcaranee 'of the1 mysterious'visitor.

It was the heirs  of ^ somebody against a man named  Stevens, who held a lot of property  that was claimed by the heirs under a  will. ,. Stevens claimed under a deed,  and'the suit was brought to set aside  the deed ou the ground that it was  obtained by fraud.  "When the lawyers on^eacb side went  through the form of asking the jurymen if they knew any of the interested  parties*to the suit. 1 saw; Harrison  shake his head in a bored way. To cut  this part short, Miss Mead walked into  the courtroom on the second day of the  trial. Harrison told mo afterward that  he knew in an instant that she was interested in the case. Before he left the  box tuatfiday he asked to be allowed to  see one of the exhibits, and, reading  the caption, he found that his intuition  had been correct. I believe Miss Mead  had been made a party to the suit after it bad been begun in a lower court,  and lier name did not appear in the  list which the lawyers read when they  polled the jury.   .  "We' talked the matter over that  evening, and of course I advised tne  boy to explain to tbe court that he had  discovered since'the trial began that he  was acquainted with one of,the plain-'.  .tiffs', in the^case:y I have'not been able  to make up my mind as to why he Insisted upon going on with the trial.

OQ-.vC9wC?wSwWwt  I was in0 the marine hospital-at Cal-'  lao, Peru, --when war was declared on  Chile and was just able to limp around  Y-when .two of the Peruvian  gunboats  were chased into port and the Chilean  man-of-war Vengeance took up her sta-,  tion ^tq-'blockade.   /There was ay third  gunboat in the harbor, and there was a  great .deal of boasting as to what the  trio would do'when they got ready to  pitch' in.    The very'least they would  do would be to sink' the Chilean within  a   quarter .of   an   hour.     The  people  foamed and raged, and the navy waited.    Those gunboats had no business  to go out against that modern ironclad,  armed1 with the latest and most powerful guns, and their officers lenew it, but  there Came a day when public opinion  drove, them-out.    The fight lasted 20  minutes.  One gunboat got back to sink  in the harbor, while the other two went  down outside.    The people .were fairly  wild  over the defeat,  and   women as  well as men howled for vengeance.  The day after the fight, while I still  had my 'quarters in the hospital, one  of the lady visitors happened to speak  to me and discovered  that I was an  American.   She began  talking of the  light, and I never saw a madder woman!   She was grieved,  humiliated and  angered over the defeat of her countrymen,  and  when  I   sided  with  her it  bro.nght out a startling proposition. She  was  the  widow  of Calinte,   of   vast  wealth and much social and political  influence and believed that the defeat  of the Peruvians was caused  by  the  timidity of the admiral.  She asked me  if it was not possible that the Vengeance could be blown up, and when I  replied that it was possible  what did  she do b'ut offer me every chance to  bring  about  such   a   calamity.   That  meant the use of a steam launch which  she owned, with all the money uecessa-  ry to fit her as a torpedo boat, and $50,-  000 cash in hand if,-1 s.uceeeded.   The  old. girl;fairly took my breath away as  she piled up the business, "and, having  once got the idea, she would not let go  cf it  She insisted that I got into her  carriage and drive home with her, and  then she sent for half a dozen of her  most influential friends and demanded  that I lay before them a plan and at  once begin work.   It was a queer position for the mate of a Yankee craft  who knew nothing of naval affairs and  had never been aboard of a  man-of-  war and had no claim. to ..'ingenuity.  1  knew absolutely nothing of torpedoes,  and'instead of a plan I had only an  idea. That was good enough for. them,  however.   They had heard of the cute  Yankee and believed that he could accomplish anything be set about I had  no more idea than the man in the moon  of going into anything seriously,' and  yet two days later found me "bossing  the job."  1 had offered my services to  fit out a launch and run-^ber out and  blow up the man-of-war, and tbe president of Peru wasn't in it witb me for'  popularity.  It took all the police force  of Callao to keep the enthusiastic population off my feet and save my arms  from being paralyzed.  In my teetotal ignorance I was wise  enough to assume to know it all, and  that passed for tbe brightest sort of  acumen and the most solid nerve.    1  soon1 ' discovered, however," that ' It  ���������wasn't necessary- for ,me to*know_  much'and .that, previous experience  ���������was not demanded. The launch was a  fair -sized one, using naphtha and,  therefore smokeless, ..and but r few  changes were necessary to fit her with  a' torpedo. "There were naval officers  at hand who knew all about torpedoes,  spars,and'electricity, and, seeming to  ���������work under my direction, we had tbe  launch fitted within a 'weekv A spar  ���������was solidly Y-af5xed to - her bows and  projected'a distance of 30 feet." To  the end of this was attached an Iron  torpedo containing 120 pounds of giant  powder,' which was to be exploded by  electricity y.at the moment of contact  with the man-of-waiv. I had counted  on a crew of three, one to fire and one  to steer,'while 1 would con the" launch  into position and press the button.  When we were all ready, 'not a mah  could be' fouad in Callao to go with  me. As high as SlO.OOO^was offered,  but there was 'no moving a- patriot.  It was considered a sure thing that  the launch would be blown to, pieces  along with the blockader, and, although all loved their country, tbey  didn't want any sure thing in theirs.  In  this emergency and  thinking to  put the men to shame Donna ,Calinte  came forward and offered to go along,  and she'was very much in earnest too.  Tbe-"scheme  didn't'-work.    The  men  ' still hung off, and underc no consideration   would   1   have -taken'a  woman  along.   The^affair was at a dead stand  still when 1'decided to\go alone.   I had  .the,electric wiresjruh aft5to" the. wheel.  "and one'i night 'at^Yd o'clock l-lett the  wharf for-:a five mile,runxthrough tho  darkness and a'gainst'a .choppy, sea by  compass. There bad^been.so much talk,  about the enterprise' that  1   expect--fi  *to find'tbe Vengeance on the aleit anu  ..to *'be" discovered  and "'punk   before   i  bad. come ^within' a cable's length  of  her, but I was'going ont because;! had  promised to and because I wanted to  show the Peruvians' how we did things  on this side of the pond.        ���������      '<���������  Steam had^beeh generated'to the last  notch and the furnace  doors  locked.  Instead of a light in the binnacle,I had  two fireflies  imprisoned  on  the compass, and I sat' at the'tiller and held a  straight course for the spot where the  Vengeance had been, seen W darkness'  closed in.   You need not ask" if r was  afraid. ��������� I was.    My teeth',chattered,  and mylimbs tre'rnbled, and In my desperation   I ^ wished   it "was  all .over.  When I had run out four ^iles, as I  judged, I slowed down to half speed.  Another half ,mile, and I-was moving  through thb'w*ater like a log.    There  was something of a fog outside,-and I  was   within,L SOb  feet 'of  the  steamer  when I* caught the glare fof her, lights.  I .was making for her broadside' on, but"  I changed the course and quietly approached her stern..    I made tho last  .hundred feet almost by inches.   Every  second-I expected to be hailed and fired  on,  but to-my amazement no lookout  seemed to be kept.   iVas that wrought  ���������up' that I wanted to scream out for relief, and my,heart pounded at my ribs  until <*I   winced   under  the   blows.     I  wondered   at   my   courage   in   going  ahead, but go ahead I did until I finally felt rather than heard the end of the  torpedo  spar  strike   against  the  iron  side of the ship.    I was fairly under  her counter w*hen I pressed the button.  There was a mighty roar, followed by a  flash, a crash and 'a hundred screams,  and then my life was blotted out. '  It was morning when I lived again,  and I was in the cabin of an English  merchant vessel. I had been picked off  a piece of cabin wreckage at daylight,  wreckage from the cabin of the Vengeance. There was no other man afloat,  and how I had reached that wreckage  and clung to it througlrthe night Providence'alone can tell. I was not greatly injured, but I was carried to London, and it was only after reaching  that port that I learned I had sent the  man-of-war to the bottom and earned  my reward from Donna Calinte. When  I could return to Peru for it, the war  was over, the Chileans had conquered,  and the donna no longer had a dollar  she could call her own.

The little brass cash, the Chinese  coins, are the lineal descendants* in  unbroken order/ of the bronze ax of  remote Celestial ancestors. From the  regular hatchet to the modern coin one  can trace a .distinct, -,if somewhat broken, succession, so that it is impossible  to say where the one leaves off and the  other begins. Here is bow this curious  pedigree first worked itself out: in  early times, before coin was invented,  barter was usually conducted between  producer and consumer with metal implements, as it still is in central Africa  at the present day.  At first the Chinese in that unsophisticated age were content to) use  real.hatchets for this commercial purpose, but after a time,!with the profound mercantile instinct of)���������)their."race,'  it occurred -to.some of ^them/that when  a man wanted half'/a. hatchet's worth  pf-goods he might as well pay for them  with half a hatchet. Still, as it would  be a pity to spoil a good working implement by cutting it in two, the  worthy Ah Sin ingeniously compromised the matter by making thin hatchets  of the usual size and shape, but far too  Blender for practical usage.

Sand-  fuss   of   Zurich,   Switzerland,   who   sub- i  jected 40,000  butterflies  to experiments,  'under, different degrees ottho sun's, heat.  On one occasion, it being unusually cold   ,  in Switzerland, a butterfly common .there  took on an appealance of a butterfly from  Lapland.    On the other hand, butterflies  which were subjected to a higher degree  of solar heat than the normal looked -as  if they had been horn and raised in'Corsica or Syria.    One result of these novel -  experiments is the production of butterflies  of an  entirely  now  type,   some  of .  them heing-of bewildering beauty.  Plant Sensitiveness.  A French investigator finds that plants  are sensitive to certain poisons in quantities so minute that they completely baffle  chemical analysis.
