'  It seemed'to Rex that the triple  headed squatting monster glared at  him with the eyes of a demon, and  the stone arms- appeared ready to  clasp him in their" cold embrace; but  Ilex had looked upon this',monster  before and was'not at all alarmed.  He .passed between the king idol  and the' one on his left, -which re-  ' sembled a carved "Buddha he had seen  (>iii an Indian citj-. As he stood  there, the three 'heads were fully six  feet above his shoulders.' P The shadows behind the great image were j  clean cut and ' intense, just what  -might have been expected when- a  white flash ^illuminated the centre of  tho apartment. ���������, ���������  Rex    knew,. what   to do.   ' He had  '  been posted  oven     on his "first  visit,  .thanks to the explicit directions given him in .advance.   ;, Ilis hand touched  the  cold  stone,   slipped  along     it  carefully.:   until   ascertain   xirojectidn  reached    when    ^ne    proper,  pressure  caused "a portion  of  give  way, revealing  cavity.

"  Undoubtedly craity priests were  wont to socpyte IheuiJio-hes vwthin  the hollow gqcL.and in various,ways  suited to their unscrupulous ingenuity work upon the- credulity 01 the  prostrate worshippers who cast themselves   fce/ore  the  stone  image*.  Rex knew .that sv.ch impositions  were not altogether unknown in the  present day', ,although, peiluin*. they  , might not be "so opeiil'y" practiced���������  still, the abje-Jt devotees were just as  blind with regard to the learful deceptions  practiced  upon   them.  After that one c\ meal survey of the  empty  space   abo\c   his    head.      lie-:  turned his attention  to another quarter,   in  which he had  more reason to  be  interested.  The dust of ages had settled upon  everything���������a fine impalpable dust  that upon the slightest movement  filled the air, almost causing strangulation. When centuries roll on such  an accumulation assumes generous  proportions oven in the most air  tight repositories as tho pyramids  of Egypt���������gram\by grain it gathers,  growing slowly but surely as the  years creep  on. toward eternity.  As Rex Hastings knelt there, with  his remnant of. a wax candle serving  as a torch, his eyes fell upon what  appeared to be little more than an  irregular heap of stones, lying at the  foot of the rude steps, and covered  with dust to such an extent that its  nature could only be vaguely guessed  at. -.'..,  A second look, might arouse- s'till  greater curiosity, for it would disclose the fa-cb-that something had'  reccn'tly. occurred to. disturb one end  of the dust strewn ridge. -Kex could  no doubt have ���������explained that to-"the  (jueen's taste,,,sinc'c'his hand had been  the prime cause of i'fc' all. ���������"���������/    ,  ..Even now lie lost no ���������lime, in speculation,  butrea/lied   out a  hand   that  ��������� 'trembled.-.in' sp:it'e   of   his   remarkable  nerve,  Another instant and the decoration  had been accomplished���������the ��������� eyes of  a latter day argonaut -had fallen upon  the treasure of the ancient gods.  The. little pile soinnied to be covered with a parchment like-.fabric that  had resisted the ravages of  time,' and  ��������� pt the same time .served to'��������� protect"  from tho encroaching ;<hist the...precious   collection  which   it  shadowed.  When this cloth had been cautiously dragged aside, disturbing as little  'its' possible-the accretion of ages, Ilex  gasped for breath, and surely with  cause, for certainly.- the-eyes of adventurer never before were ravished  with a more, wonderful sight since  1hc famous conquistadors of old, Pi-  zorrd and Cortex scoured Peru and  Mexico,  unearthing the  treasures     of  the sun-worshippers and the ancient  Aztecs, and gathering rooms-full of  gold and silver.  Heaped upon each other, in a confused mass, just as they had been  tossed into this sacred and secret hiding place ages ago, perhaps by the  last priest of the oracle, were scores  qf golden images and vessels of ,the  most amazing- and grotesque shape  imaginable, such as would fill the soul  of an antiquarian with the most stupendous delight.' '  Many of those -were possibly idols,,  others may have had some connection  with the temple. r Ope must admire  the delicate workmanship shown, in  their construction, and it,was very  evident that this ancient people who'1  lived in the heart of southprn Africa,  even before the blacks held undisputed sway, must have brought their  'knowledge af working in t the precious  metals either from ,far away India  or from Egypt.  Tattle Rex cared at that particular  moment what the origin of this exquisite gold filigree'work upon .several of "the vasesr might be���������his'whole  soul was wrapped, up ,in 'contemplation of the collection, and the thought  that by right of discovery it was his  almost' overpo(wcrcd hitn, for at' this  moment ot' exaltation scruples "were  not apt to -arise within his mind regarding his prerogative as1 claimant.  He again stretched out his hands  and allowed his eager fingers to close  about a vase that stood' almost eight  inches high. It was bound over the  top with parchment tied'with several  ligatures, and as he raised the whole  Rex found it necessary to exert considerable strength.  '' To "snatch out his knife and score  away the parchment was but', the  work of a second, when' out poured  a handful of small 'stones that glittered and glowed' even '-in the feeble  candle-light..   - ��������� , ,  They were gems of the purest "water, precious stones, rudely cut it is  true,'but many< of them in such a  prismatic0 way as to bring out astonishing beauty���������rubies /that may once  have adorned the brow of a Cleopatra, dazzling diamonds that m the  cycles of time.passed since*they were  torn from their original lodgment iri  t!he dark mines*of the earth, possibly  glittered in the crown ,of some mighty  rajah of ancient India, or the coronet  of a Chinese Mogul., In .mystery was  their story wrapped. - and in impenetrable gloom must it ever remain. ��������� c>  After lying here in the ruins ,of ^the  Temple' of Azor these centuries, .-when  the world .had made '* such progress,  with" the Anglo-Saxon race dominating- its arteries  of trade and seeking  4-  .WINNIPEG MARKETS.

Tbe Importance of tlie British Columbia  Aiurkfet to tlie Weslerii Fdimer.  The following letter, of deep interest to the settlers of Manitoba,and  the Northwest Territories^ appears in  the last issue of the Nor'-West Farmer : ���������    , ''  "It,is probably no exaggeration to  nay that Alberta,' from Gardston to  Edmonton is filling up'^more rapidly  than any other section of the .'Northwest.      A great many settlers    from  the United   States,, possessing     both  capital and experience, are coming in;  and'as'the best of the free homestead  lands south of the,line are about exhausted, there is every reason to believe  that> this movement from    'the  States is destined to grow at a' constantly accelerated rate/     The Americans  come here  in    order  to  obtain  cheap land ;   they sell their farms in,  the Western States for $30 or $40 an  acre and  buy  large blocks  here    for  $3.   It i.s a good stroke of business  for farmers with' big families.       ''  /"Obviously,  however, ���������   the     future  well-4/eing of these" people,  with   the  growth of the .migration turns  upon  their   ability    to   obtain* a  profitable,  market 'for their products.    The mar-;'  ket  of  Southern!'    British    Columbia,"  with  its  gold  and  silver  mines,- ab-'  sorbs  a, great deal-of the  beef," hay,  oats,  poultry,  eggs,, flour,   etc.,   raised on  this side  of    the Rockies; .indeed, but for the development   which  has  taken^   place    there    'we should'  hardly have witmessed the rapid set-  a  adventure and conquest -in every land  upon,which the,sun shone, behold, in  due time one of this same venturesome 'people, fated to tear away the  barrier that had so long prevented,  these princely gems taking their rightful place among the coveted'treasures  .of a world's admiration, and 'once  more casting them, forth t'o become  an object of. barter among the nations.   ' .,  Rex was a practical * man after all.  and he sternly crushed" dn\vr> <������-^c~  leetingsi of; awe and veneration which  lie must naturally experience upon  gazmg'uponisuch a'remarkable treasure trove.  There would be a better time and  opportunity to consider these things  in the future, when danger no longer  hovered about them.  Just now the practical business lin  hand enlisted his whole attention and  sympathy.  That he had anticipated this very  pleasant moment became evident, for  what should he do but haul out from  a pocket several stout little canvas  bags, such as are used by banks all  over the world when transporting the  gold coin of the realm.  .Snatching up a handful of the gems  he thrust them into the yawning  mouth of a small bag.

','As you "are' aware, farm products  raised on .this side of the boundary  are practically'shut, out bf'the United States. Their specific and ad valorem duties are higher by a good  deal than ours, and, what is more,  the valuation upon which their }ad  valorem duties are, levied is usually  excessive.' The Canadian duties were  framed on thetl basis of prices in the  older provinces. For example, , the  duty oft $2 per ton on hay amounts  to something in the east, where the  price of hay is $10 or $12, but it  amounts to little in British Columbia where hay coming from Idaho  and Washington sells at the minas  for '$20 or $24 per ton. The United  States duty on hay is $4.  "Again, the Canadian duty of 3  cents per" dozen on eggs looks big  in the older provinces, where the farmer gets 10 or 12 cents for them.  On the other hand, it cuts no figure  to speak of in Southern British Columbia, where eggs frequently sell-fc>-  60 cents. ' The United States dutj' on  toms valuation  approximates to   the  fair market value,  but the -American  customs, on the Montana frontier at  any rate, places a value on our stuff  which" can only be characterized     as  exorbitant.      I know a  case    -where  Canadian vegetables going into Montana were valued * at ,75  per  cent  in  excess   of  the   current  market   price  at Macleod and'Pincher, so that-the  duty became prohibitory.    c The 'Can-.  adian duty" on potatoes   is   15  cents  per  bushel,  the American 25 ;  Cana-~  dian duty on butter  _ cents, American0 6;  Canadian, oh  dressed' poultry ,,  20  per cent,   American  5   cents    per,  pound;   Canadian, on  live   cattle,   20'  per, cent,    America'n 27^;     Canadian  on horses ,20 per cent,; American $30 ,  p������r head.

'/, 'in America.  ,.A dashing captain of the'

- /t.who; "lt^ has " been- bravely *> asserted,',
/would have-changed the fortunes of'
vFrancerhad sbe'bee'h-tlie consort of the,
- emperor* himself.1 This girl was'Eliza-
tbeth Patterson,'the.daughter of "William Patterson, of Baltimore, one of the
wealthiest citizens of this^ continent.
Vivacious, beautiful, accomplished, ambitious, headstrong, she was accorded
the foremost place among all the belles
who graced,'the many social functions
it the national capital and other cen-
���ters in that .historic period. '���-
Mutual admiration was the result of
the first meeting of Jerome and Miss
Patterson. . Soon the courtship excited
the^attention" of the young lady's family, and her fatlier emphasized his disapproval by sending her away.   Sepa-,
ration did not prevent frequent communication between the lovers, and the
determined young woman made known
her purposes Ho her irate father  by
stating, "I love Jerome Bonaparte, and
I would rather be his wife if only for
one day than make the happiest' marriage in the world."   She soon returned
to Baltimore, and within four months
after they first saw each other, on Dec.
23, 1S03, the youthful lowers were married by the Catholic bishop of Baltimore. ' - o
The wedding was an  international
sensation and was followed by festivities and hospitalities planned on a royal scale.   'An extensive tour for those
days through  the New England" and
middle states was signalized by unexampled   ovations   in   the   fashionable
world.   In the glamour and enthusiasm
of democratic festiviti.es the eventuality  of royal disfavor was sadly disco ud ted.
The father of tbe bride had already
received  warnings that the marriage
would not meet with Napoleon's s.iuc-
, tion and . that'his. approval.''would- be
necessary to any happy or peaceful alliance.- " v !
The brother of the bride was imme-
- diately dispatched to London and Paris
armed with necessary credentials from
"Washington to invoke the aid of our
representatives abroad to effect, a conciliation, with ��� Emperor Napoleon.
James   Monroe,   the   minister 'at   the
; co.urt of St. James, and Livingston at
Paris exhausted the agencies of di-
'plottincy in their efforts,' but "to no
-avail. Proposals were made to the emperor that a munificent bounty would
be provided for Jerome. Finally,a
promised reconciliation was secured
from Jerome's mother and all the fam-
ily except that most important personage, the emperor, who remained ominously silent. This silence was painfully broken ' in about four mouths
when the emperor sent peremptory orders to the French consul general in
America to withhold Jerome's supplies
and prohibiting all French vessels from
receiving on board the "young person"
with whom Jerome - was consorting.
He sent word to Jerome that if he
would return to France without Miss
Patterson "the error of the moment"
would be overlooked.
In the meantime the brother, Robert
Patterson, wrote home and warned
Elizabeth against coming to France, as
the wrath of Napoleon was very bitter. ^Before the warning was received
the young couple had already' sailed
for' Portugal. French and English'
vessels: which had forr weeks watched
for every ship which might possibly
have the young couple on board, were,
fortunately evaded.
Jerome lert his young bride at Lis*
ton and proceeded to Paris alone. History merely conjectured as to how,
tie was received. Very soon the young
wife left Lisbon under advice from
Jerome and'sailed for Amsterdam in-
the 'same vessel In . w'hich she left
America. Her vessel, the, Erin, ,was
not allowed to land. .'After a week's
waiting the Erin, sailed for England,'
and the fair but disconsolate bride
was landed at Dover. From thence
she went to London, and on July 7,
1805, ��� sheugave birth to;a son. After
many months of harrowing' suspense
she began to realize the1 treachery of
her'husband.      ��t ' ��'       '
Napoleon absolutely ��� refused to acknowledge, the marriage as valid ,and
offered a pension of G0,000 .francs'a
year for the support of "Miss Patterson," as he called her, if Jerome would
persuade her to( return to America
and abandon the name of Bonaparte.
The emperor had already requested'
the pope to publish a'^bull,,annulling
Jerome's marriage." ^This tbe pope re-
���fused-'to do. ^Immediately Napoleon,
had the Imperial council 'pass a decree of divorce. Jerome^ was/created
a-prince/of the.. empire >and advanced
to the rank"of-admiral. 'Efforts- were
made, to, marry him to a European
princess.'  *,-'���     ' '"%_, *c\  ; '/'
As* late as October/ iS05; Jerome still
continued to write to" bis, bride, avowing his/unchangeable love, ~, but events
disproved his, loyalty, for in less than,
four years after1 his nuptials In Baltimore his, final abandonment' of his
faithful American,bride was. confirmed
by his marriage to Princess Catherine
of Wurttemberg. The marriage was
celebrated' with great pomp and the
approval of the emperor.*" The newly
married couple immediately proceeded
to"1 Westphalia, of' which Jerome had,
only recently been made king. ., ���' , -"
, The disconsolate bride and her Infant
son - had' returned to' Baltimore.'' Her
life imbittered and her,spirit envenom-,
ed,-she found no,satisfaction In living
'except .in ambitious hope .for tbe'.off-.
spring" of, her treacherous royal .1 bus-
��band." .'   ' ��� ��� I t ���    ��'
:��� Her love for Jeromewas transformed
into bate and contempt. Jerome offered her a title as princess and a dower
of'200,000 francs, which she refused.
,WThen he learned that she had accepted
a smaller pension from, the emperor
and rejected one from him so much
larger, he requested a reason for her
doing so. She replied sarcastically, "I
prefer to hide under the' wing of an
eagle rather than hang from the neck
of a gosling." Again Jerome advised
her' that she might have a' home in
Westphalia. She sent him the reply,
"Your kingdom may be large, but it is
not large enough for two'queens."
Her fame for .wit and repartee was
international. There were,a cutting vein
of sarcasm and a pithiness of humor
that made her conversation interesting
by its brilliant and reckless maliciousness. When she was ruthlessly shut
out from the regal circles to which her
husband belonged, it imbittered her
against the democratic herd. Neverthe-,
less when she visited Europe she was
the toast of the salons and the center
of attraction in court and diplomatic
circles. v
She never saw her husband but once
after he left ber at Lisbon. Years afterward Jerome was in the gallery of
the Pitti palace, in Florence, when
Mme. Bonaparte was also a visitor.
Jerome recognized her,as she silently
walked by, and he whispered to his
other wife, Catherine, "That lady is
my former wife." The recognition was
mutual, but no words were interchanged, and they never saw each other
Her son developed a wonderful likeness to his famous uncle, the. emperor,
and she lived in the hope that the revival of the empire would reinstate
the Napoleonic dynasty and' that her
son would be accorded his just position in the royal household. When the
republic was overthrown in 1S52 and
the empire re-established, she made a
desperate effort to secure the recogni-;
tion of the validity of her marriage
and the legitimacy of ber son. "Jerome
entered a plea to the council of state
demanding that , "Jerome Patterson",
should be prohibited from using the
name of Bonaparte. The council decided that he was a legitimate child
and entitled to the name, but did hot
recognize him as a member of the
royal family;
Mme. Bonaparte lived to the ripe old
age of 94, and her latter years were
characterized by eccentricities innumerable. By parsimonious economy
she accumulated a large estate, but
her vitriolic, temperament held at a distance many who admired her beauty,
virtue and even her vaulting ambition.
1 stood beside her grave only a few
hours after she was laid to rest, and I
could not help contrasting her madly
romantic mesalliance with a royal
traitor with the sweet love matches

' Mr. Augustine Birrell once incautiously purchased the works of Hannah
More, 19' fat volumes of them, for
something like $2.25. They became a
nuisance, and he "was puzzled as" to
how to get rid of them. ""As for selling
them, it^is not so easy to sell 19 vol '

Mr. Birrell resorted to a desperate expedient: "I had to^do something, and
quickly, too, for sorely needed was

volumes in the back garden. 'Out of

*-'I have been much impressed with the

said- an old steamboat" man, '''and the
Mississippi 'river has furnishedi ino some
rathei'-good examples!'" I can understand-
now why Caisar looked out upon the Nile
in such curious amazement and offered
all' that lie stood ' tor to the Egyptian
priest if he would'sliow'him the source
of "that wonderful-river. " But-the antics
of. the Kile look ��� like insignificant 'nothings, to me' when- compared Jwith ' the,
strange conductJ"of> the stream that oozei
out of. the earth at Itasca and hurries on
,'its murky way toward the gulf of Mex-���
ico.\;   " -    '""+:'   -:^\.r /- '. ^ '','*���"
"Towns along the 'Mississippi that, once
'stood,right on the blink of the river'have
been'isolated even in my'day, -and there
are,  'too, . all   along, tlie''course   of 'the
"stream little'" empires/in view* where the
river' has encroached upon small centers
���of  population,   finally   eating the  earth
away and forcing the inhabitants to seek
other quarters.    There are hundreds of
.these  places that * are 'almost  forgotten
now even by the men who are constantly
on the river.   .What"brings about these
violent changes along the banks of the
river?    Not floods.    It is just the ordinary doings of the stream.
"In the first place, the current of the
Mississippi is wonderfully swift, and the
sediment deposited at any point where
resistance to the flow is offered is great.
Tie a string to the neck of a bottle and
sink it, with the mouth of the bottle up
i and open. If held in one1 place where the
flow is normal, in an extremely short1 period of time the bottle will fill with sediment. Stretch a' net across the river, a
net so finely woven that nothing but the
pure water of the river can pass through,
and on account oftlie rapidity of the flow
and "the greatness of the deposit of sediment almost in a twinkling the river
would be dammed at that point. Experts have admitted this. This brings
me to the point of my narrative. The
flow of currents is frequently interfered
with by sunken boats, perhaps by a jack-
staff sticking up above tho surface. The
current is diverted by degrees, generally
touching the far side of the stream a
mile from the point, where it again meets
resistnnce and immediately begins' the
building of a sand bar.
"I have seen a thousand examples of
this sort during my career,on the river,
and I have known of instances where tho
root of a tree or the mere twig of a willow has brought about similar conditions.
Those things have tended to make a riddle ont of the river, yet the stream after
awhile will be handled so as to undo all
that it has accomplished in this way."
"Well?".I asked as she laid down the
gayly covered magazine. I was sorry for
the, ending of the tale, when the, gray'eyes
ceased to flash and the kind'lips to quiver.
"It is a pretty story, Mr. Norton," she
said. /'Oh,'no, you needn't shake your-

Alfalfa, whether it is desired for forage or hay, should be cut when budded  or just before full bloom, as it contains  more nutriment at this time: besides, it  is better for the subsequent crops to,  cut before it is in full bloom. After  the' field is well established three or  four cuttings are usually secured in a  season. The value of, the hay depends  much on the methpd or care used in  curing it.  ��������� J  Alfalfa cannot be cured tbe way hay r  is usually handled. After cutting, it  should be allowed to lie in,the swath  only long enough to become well, wilted: when it-should be raked into windrows, where 'it may be left a few hours  before putting  into cocks.

These  if left in heaps in the course of a few  years become at the bottom the black-  'osfof humus, the rye straw being by  'far the slowest to decompose, writes J.  J.TL Gregory to Country Gentleman.  At the close of the planting season of  1890. having two' or three carloads of  stasdo manure and about half a ton of  ground bone, nitrate of soda and rauri-  ate-of .potash fo spare, I concluded to  utilize more or less of the waste by  making a compost heap in the cellar of  one of the stables. It was made with  manure as a foundation, then a layer of  the half rotten strawy material, over  which we scattered one of the fertilizing elements, care being taken to place  the most strawy material nearest the^  bottom of the heap. About half way  up I dumped in and spread evenly  some four cords of half rotten corncobs. With alternating layers we built  up the heap to the height of about rive  feet.  This was in early summer.    It was  left untouched until planting time next  spring, when on testing it I found that  every substance bad  fully  rotted  and  tbe whole mass was in a fine state of  comminution.    Even1 the corncobs had  entirely  disappeared  and   thus  added  their 25 per cent of potash, to the heap.  I.used-this compost on freshly broken  up sod. giving it a fair dressing for a  corn crop.

It was by long  odds the fastest club in "fast London,  and that it did not have the entire, ap-  " proval of solicitous motherg arid staid  fathers   goes   without   saying.     Our*  , smartness, however, should not be con-  ' founded  with  anything dishonorable.  ,There ,were no, card sharpers or debt  ' shirkers among us.    Wheri,a member  could no longer go "the pace'/ financial-,  -ly as well as^socially, he had the good  taste to absent himself and drop out of  j sight' until thing's bettered themselves.  -Archibald Queen,  a bachelor and.a  ��������� man of 40,  had  been a member for  three years when I was elected.   He'  ,was the leader'of,the fastest, and probably flung away twice as much money  as;, any other individual. -He was the  * eldest' son  of a  "sir" and had been  * _"ET TJS bltrXK TO THE���������TO THE _AT_ DECEASED 1"  left a good bit of money, and the way  he made ducks and drakes of it was a  caution. About the time I came iuto  the club he had run his race and was  tangled up with the note shavers. Six  months later he was known to be fiat  broke. The man had a keen sense of  "humor, though obstinate as a mule  about taking advice"and it was doubt-  less his desperation that drove him  into cheating at cards. The incident  did not happen at our club, but at  another, though we' were speedily in  possession of the proofs. It meant hisn  doom. Even if he had not been down"  to his last dollar he would have been  tabooed everywhere. As it was, with  no hope for the financial future, he  _ad only to sit down and plan how he  should disappear from the sight of  men.  Queen had been a hot favorite In the  'club, and many of us hoped he might  bring forward a good defense, but as a  matter of fact he made none.   There  ���������was  noc other way than  compulsion,  and while some-of the voters thought  "be might drift out to the colonies and  make a new  start others  were confident that a man of his temperament  iwould not try to outlive the disgrace.  'About a week after Queen had been  officially notified of his expulsion  he  ���������met a member of the club on,the street  and through him extended an invitation to five or six others of us to partake of a little farewell dinner with  "him, as he was on the eve of going  away.   It seemed a queer move on his  part, and you may think it queer in;  our accepting the invitation,  but we  ���������who had.been most chummy with him  could   find  excuses   for   bim.   It  was  decided to drop in oh him as individuals and in no way binding the club,  and  when  the evening came around  ���������five of us were on hand.   Queen had  spacious apartments in a fashionable  thoroughfare,   and   he   welcomed   us  ���������with the utmost heartiness.   The five  of' us went in together, and we found  ourselves the only guests.   On arriving  we were ushered iuto his sitting room,  from which most of the furniture had  Ibeen removed.     It was being packed  for storage during his absence, he said,  ibut we knew that it had gone to the  auction   rooms   instead.     Had   there  ibeen  a suspicious  man among us he  would  have wondered tbat no odors  came from the kitchen or noise from  the dining room, and be would have  noticed that Queen seemed a hit nervous  and  uneasy   and  was  doing   his  best to appear serene. "We had gone  In a friendly spirit for a pleasant hour,  and why should we feel suspicious of  our host?'  We were offered cigars as, soon as  we   got   seated,   and   as   we   smoked    and     waited     for  . the    dinner  Queen   was   bright   and   chatty   and  something like his old time self.    He  had said that he was going away, but  he did not give further particulars, and  of course no one asked him.   We somehow gathered the idea, however, that  he  was  going  out  to  South  Africa.  Dinner, seemed a long timer in coming,  when Queen, himself brought la wine  ana   glasses   ana   explained   tnat   ne  wished us to drink -to a toast he would  give.   It struck "us as strange, but he  had always been a queer fellow. ''We  sat in a half .circle about the table, aud  as tho glasses were filled and we waited for the signal to rise to our feet the  man, glass in hand, stepped back until  he could lean his elbow''on the mantel  and then quietly said:  "Gentlemen, keep your seats. I have  nothing to say regarding tbe action  of the Pace club or any other club, and  I am proud of the fact that a few of  you" are here to see me off. It was kind  of you to come, and rest assured that I  fully appreciate it. Tho toast I" propose is rather odd perhaps, but everything goes, you know. Let us drink-  let us drink to, the���������to the late deceased!"     ,   <     '    ,' (f>  Queen was a left handed man/   He  held'the glass in,his ,right-hand, and,  as he hesitated over his words his left  went back to his hip pocket,, and out  came a pistol.   We realized in a flash  what' he meant to do, but it camev so  suddenly that no one could put forth a  hand.   There was a grim smile on his  face as he .placed the muzzle" of the  weapon to his temple,-but he,did,,hot  pull the trigger. , Outside a thunderstorm had been working up over the  great city.' We had heard the low rumble  of thunder,and caught,a flash or two  of lightning through'tho windows.   As  the pistol went up to the man's temple  there came a tremendous* crash,  followed by what seemed to be balls of  fire. floating around the room, and all  of us were knocked about and more or  less stunned.    As  we 'recovered'-ourselves and relighted* the gas we found  Queen lying on his ,back on'the, floor,  ,with the pistol clutched in his- hand.,  The weapon had not been fired, and  yet he was dead.    A^thunderbolt had  struck the chimney, followed it down  to the second floor and then, tearing its  way/but,  had struck our host as he  leaned .oh the mantel. .T^wo,.or three  men ran' for doctors,' while the. others  chafed the man's limbs, and itVas a  quarter* ~of  an   hour  before  we  were  sure that he was dead.   A search for  wine to aid in reviving him proved that  the be'droom, pantry,1 dining room and  kitchen1 were dismantled and that no  dinner for us had been prepared.   *He  had simply invited 'us there to witness,  his death and a dramatic finish to a  wasted life, but at the last instant had  been saved from self murder and the  curtain  rung down  by  the  hand  of  fate.

' '  "THE   WAT   THEY   DID   SPOON'WAS SOMETHING AWFUL."   , ,  <<-  (  The Nose For KeTV������.  A young man who goes into journalism intent on making a reputation and  Deing something more than a mere  amanuensis or copyist must have a  prompting love for his worki a quick  perception of what is to be seized on  in passing events and the ability accurately to narrate or describe on pa-'  per that which be has seen or which  has been told him.  But these three essentials are riot  provided by any college course. Any  editor can tell true stories of men  from the best eastern universities, men  with trained minds and well stocked  vocabularies and a vast assortment of  general knowledge, who were of no  value in a newspaper office because  they were not able to identify a piece  of news even when it was lying in  front of them and beckoning to them,  or perhaps because a critical 'self  consciousness prevented them from  writing a simple impersonal account  of an everyday happening. It cannot  be said that such men aro "inferior"  to the other men who fill tbe paper  with valuable and entertaining matter. All we can say is tbat they are  not adapted to this peculiar grind.  They were not "cut out" to be newspaper men. The sooner they get out  of the work tbe better.  Fortunately getting out is not usually delayed. The ease with which a  young man bursts Into journalism is  only equaled by the superb ease with  which he is sent through the street  door if he fails to show a quick and  enthusiastic grasp of the requirements.  Many are called, and few. are chosen.  It is truly a survival of the fittest���������  not necessarily of the best or tbe  brightest.���������George Old in Saturday  Evening Tost.

"Well, 1 went over there last night  to pop the question, and after sitting  around awhile I popped. 1 thought it  was a dead sure thing, of course, but  the widder riz up and give me the cold  throw down." ������  "She refused you. you mean?"  "She did, and she spoke in plain English too. Yes, sir, she refused my heart  and hand as plump as mud, and when  I got outdoors I was so'giddy in the  head that I walked half a mile in the  wrong direction. Why, Abe, the shivers are still creeping up and down my  back, and I can't hardly draw a long  breath."  a  "But she must have explained why  sho refused you."  "Yes; I believe she did. She said our  spirits wasn't in harmony or some  such thing and that while I would be  wanting boiled dinners she'd be sighing for quail on toast. " I didn't sleep a  wink all last night, and I haven't eaten  any breakfast, and I'm taking it hard,  Abe, mighty hard. I'm kind of thinking of committing suicide."  "Nonsense!" I said. "If one widder  won't have you, then try another."  "1 can't, Abe," he replied, with tears  In his eyes. "When a man of my age  has got the cold kerflop, he hasn't any  spunk left. I shan't be no good to myself nor anybody else for the rest of  my life. Abe, you are the government,  ain't you?"  "Well, I represent the postmaster  general, the administration, the United  States and the constitution, and if 1  should.meet a load of hay on the road  it would have to turn out for me."  "That's what I thought, and if you've  got to stop at the w-dder's this morning I want you to do me a.favor. 1  want you to tell ber that it's the opin-  iou of the government that she's made  the biggest mistake of her life and that  if sbe marries anybody else she'll have  boils and toothache and rheumatism  all the rest? of her days. Make it  mighty strong, Abe. Make her feel  what she's missed by turning me down,  and give her to understand that there's  40 other widders in this county who'd  jump at the chance of marrying me."  I promised him; and drove off, but as  I looked back and saw him sitting on  the fence with his head in his hands!  knew that his. heart was broken. I'd  heard that Uncle Eli Warner was full  of trouble over his daughter Mary, and  as I drove up to the house I wasn't  surprised to see Mrs. Warner waiting  for me. She had a club in one band  and a package of letters in the other  and was trying to look; ferocious. It  was a poor attempt, however, and her  voice trembled as she said:  "Abo. mebbe you've heard about our  Mary?" j  ?".Tust a, little," says I.   "I hope she's  well and as good looking as usual."  "No. Abe; she ain't a bit well, and 1  shouldn't be a bit surprised if her spirit sailed away any hour. As for looks,  she.has aged'ten years in'two weeks.

Widely    known by the leading scientists     of    Arherica'   and Europe, Dr.  Haanel has long held*among them a  position vof  commanding  respect   for  his own accomplishments.    In a tribute paid Dr.   Haanel upon the     conclusion      cf fourteen years of service   .  as a professor in Victoria University  some     years     ago, it was 'sai'd that  probably no  olflier person had     done  so  much to  give  science its  due importance  in  the university education   0  of Canada as this man.     He entered  Syracuse University twelve years-ago  when the department of physics was  small     and poorly equipped;  he will  >leave the university in possession'of  one of the .finest  and most complete  departments     that can be found    in  any     educational   institution  in     tho  country.     From his earnest belief   in  Christianity,  his  enthusiasm for   his  work and his integrity of character.  Dr.   Haanel"s      college  lectures   have  been a powerful inspiration to young  people on  his  classes.     Few teachers  leave  so   deep  a  moral   and  intellectual    mark upon  their  students     as  he has done, and few could be followed upon their departure by a greater  feeling of    regret.

GHOSTS.  For some time past, it  has  been  known that a .genuine   ghost   has  hauntfd   the   recreation   grounds,  and part of lower camp, and in consequence, the children,  and   many  grown people, have been  afraid to  venture near  those localities   after  nightfall.     Quite lately   however,  two young   couples   thought   they  would ribk the spirit for the sake of  a quiet walk on   the   bike   track.  W hen at the most secluded part of  t-.e grounds, his ghostship appeared, and a certain tall young gentleman who hails from sunny   Nova  Scotia, got such a start that he forsook his girl, and   ran,  and   after  eBcon8cing himself behind   a   big  rock pile, demanded  if the   ghost,  "wanted .a bullet."     Finally,   the  party collected again and adjourned to the candy store, from whence,  ��������� after fortifying wittf/many   cream  sodas and lemon squashes, the long  fellow departed for the  bach, marvelling-grea tly.
