"'May we soon  meet again," he said, much moved:  and Hortcnse called  after him:    ,  ���������'Do not forget to have the stall  prepared (for the golden sorrel; he is  accustomed  to   a  box-stall."  She stood in the open door, and at  these words looked toward the stable where the beautiful head of- her  pet could be seen over the top of  his stall, and this 'sight so occupied  her that she did not hear the carriage, roll away or see two eyes  looking longingly ,for a last glance  from  her.  Mademoiselle, who was si.lling at  the window of her'room, shook her  head. Kite had only heard that  morning that the, wedding was to  take place in four weeks, and that  Lucie had been chosen by the bride-  elect to follow her lo'her new home.  She would have'to stay there, alone  and forgotten, with no resource but  to play chess with the baron, and  , with, ft all must be ' thankful that  'Hortcnse granted her that much., A  ,pi liable life���������that was the result of  all her faithfulness. And now that  madamc ������ was lo be married, if she  should have children,, slie would say*,  in that tone of quiet malice so peculiar to her, '"Dearest Berlin,, all  respect to you, but my daughters  must be brought up better than I  was; I can not make "any use 'of ���������  you."

When a native-Hollander wants,to  show bis hatred for an Englishman  he simply refers to him as> a''"sleert  man'*���������in other words, "the man with  a tail." ��������� The legend says that Thomas  a Bocket cursed the Kentish men who  spitefully cut oil? the tail of his horse  while he way riding the ��������� animal  through the country, and'that' the entire generation of Kent,which followed  wore tails like those, of horses. John  Bale, Edward VI.'s bishop of Ossory,  mentions the legend, but' gives some  variations as to the cause of Ihe ignoble punishment. He says John Cap-  grave and Alexander of Esseby'-say-  etli that "for castyuge 'fyshe taylcs at  St. Augustine Dorsetshyre men had  taylcs ever after that."  But Folydorus applies it to Kentish  ''men at Stroud, by-Rochester, "for cut-  tinge oil Thomas Beckers ' horse's  taylq.". 'One account says' that only  those 'living in Kent at the time of  the curse were ."alllictod with' large,  drooping tayles. like brutes;'their posterity being not so affected."  JjOnilwA  Tower.

About Magnets. ���������  Magnets are frequently made in the  form "of a horseshoe or. letter -U, but a.  horseshoe magnet; is really : nothing  move than a bar magnet bent. As both  poles will attract iron-it is apparently  twice as strong as when in the bar  form. A piece of iron laid across the  poies is attracted by both of them. In  this case tho poles act on opposite ends  of the iron and do not destroy each  other's effects, for each pole magnetizes.  t!'e portion of the iron, opposite it. Tlie  iron therefore becomes a strong magnet with its north pole ��������� touching the  south pole of the horseshoe magnet and  its south pole touching the north pole.  This is popularly called a "keeper." because it "keeps." or preserves, the  strength of the magnet, which becomes much weaker when tlie keener  is left off.���������St. Nicholas.  a good word for Baby's Own Tablets  At the age of two months my baby  was dreadfully constipated.'.

A well known judge, who is as famous for his wit as for his corpulency,  was much disturbed in mind by his  tendency to ever increasing stoutness.  He tried many remedies, but without  any success.

Marching inside, he said:  "Cut me off twenty pounds of pork."  The butcher sharpened his knife and  at once complied. The judge looked at  the moat for a minute or two and then  walked off.  "Shall I send the pork to your  house?" inquired tho butcher, who felt  that the judge had overlooked instructions.  "Oh, no," was the reply, given with  a smile; "I don't want it.

The nonchalance of boys who are  sure of a dinner, and would disdain as  much as a lord to do or say aught to  conciliate one, is the healthy attitude  of human nature. How is a boy the  master of society! Independent, irresponsible, looking out from his corner  :>u such people and facts as pass by,  he tries and sentences them on their  merits, in the swift summary ways of  boys, as good, bad, interesting, silly,  eloquent, troublesome.

Charles   Aloysius    Hall  . ,,,*would scarcely have been taken for a  minister of the"'gospel as he sat in the  corner    of    a    downtown    hotel   that  morning, intent on  the columns of a  time, table.   There was no "Prince Al-  "bert," no high hat, no clerical collar, no  high buttoned vest.   His clothes, of not  the  latest cut,  yet 'carefully  brushed  and pressed, would have stamped him'  a  young  business   man,   and  after  a  glance at his face���������a firm, clean shaven  face, with the brows at that moment  knit in a frown���������one would have said  that business was not all the gentleman in question could have wished it.  It was a favorite remark of tbe Iter.  "   Mr. 'Hall  that if   his'daily   life   and  deeds gave no inkling to his profession  ' the symbols of the cloth never would. ���������  For"the first time in the long fight the  liev.   Charles   Uall   was   discouraged.'  He realized that now indeed the church  at Cedarville,  his church,  was iu the  last ditch. n Tho roof'leaked iiud that  cracked the plastering, the carpet was  in tatters, the paint was losing faith in  the clapboards and -the spire was so  badly   out   of   plumb   that   the   town?  board had threatened to take itc'down  .unless it was given prompt attention.  '" Some subscription papers, circulated  through the ,tow'n, had netted returns ,  pitifully small.    The ' envelope Aveekly-  offering system had been woefully inadequate to cover the pastor's salary1,  " and   the   Ladies'    Aid   society, ' wkh  three suppers and a fair,   had raised  <   just ?GS.37. Hesmile.d grimly as he remembered  that .last   year   his   salary  ��������� had been $200 short and this year-bade ,  fair to be'another hundred short ���������\   . ���������  -   There ��������� had remained yet ,one  hope.  Cedarville was quite a summer resort,  'and,during. the hot months numerous  Kvell to do "men from the neighboring  " city stayed there with their families.  -Some  of  these'attended  the  church."  ,, As a last resort Rev. Mr. Hall had come  to"the'city to make personal appeal to  these" men.,    But  Brother   Jones  and  Brother   Hayes' and  Brother   Benton  'had other channels^for their currency,  '-and when Hall, weary and heartsick,  sat down in the corridor of the hotel,' ,  he had raised but $20 in  cash,  with  pledges of perhaps $3S more.  He had opened his time table again  when some one touched his shoulder.  "Oh, I say, Spider," said a voice in  ..deprecation,   ''this   isn't   just   square,  you know.    We've been hunting high  and low for you.   Why didn't you send  us word?"  Kail looked up. Two young fellows,  evidently college men, stood before  him.  '.'Were you addressing mo?" said  Hall.  "That's pretty good," said the other  young man. "You're funny when you  have a try at dignity, old boy."  "There's no use mincing matters,"  said No. 1. "If you're going to back  down, we want the deposit back; that's  all."  "Gentlemen," said Hall curtly. "I'll  give your seeming impertinence the  benefit of the doubt. There is evidently some mistake here."  "Oh, ring off; ring off!" said the first  speaker wearily. "You've led us enough  of a chase already."  "See here," said Hall, rising angrily;  "I've no intention"-���������  "Have you the* nerve to say you're  not Spider McGann?" said No." 2 while  he favored his companion with a ponderous wink.  "Most certainly I'm not," said Hah.  "Would you mind lotting us see your  left forearm?" said No. 1, with the air  of a man who has trumped the trick.  "Certainly not," said Hail, with some  asperity, "if it will bo a means of convincing you."  He bared his, left forearm, and the  two bent over it critically.  "By George! There aren't any tattoo'',  marks here," said the shorter of the  pair. "We owe you every apology,  sir, for a very stupid blunder. Will  you join us?", He nodded toward a  pair of swinging doors from behind  .which the clink of glasses was plainly  audible.  ''No, thank you," said Hall shortly  and turned again to his time table.  Again he felt the touch on his shoulder.  ,   "We don't mean to intrude,", said a  respectful voice.  Hall-looked up and found the young  fellows again before him.  "Well?" he said.  "You see," began the taller chap,  "we're in the deuce of a fix, and we  thought perhaps���������bare chance, you  know���������you might care to help us out  and incidentally make a neat bit out  of it. There's several hundred in it  for some one."  Hall thought of the church and hia  morning's w'ork for the $38.  "I'm certainly open to suggestions,"  he said, smiling grimly.  "Can  you   box?"   said  his  interloc-  we need just at present. This gen- j  tleman is Mr. Burns. I am Robert i  Dix.   ' ' ' i  ' "You see." Dix continued. " "at the |  gym there is a trainer called Hefty, j  P.uike. He's put out every man in col- j  !c;-'e who has had tbe courage to give j  him a go. by virtue of which Mr. -j  Burke has begun to think himself'the  who if thine:, and it therefore becomes  our bounden duty to relieve-this superfluous pomposity.  "This was our plan: Sonic years ago  there came to the gym a little follow  named Spider McGann. Spider was a  coming lightweight, which truth didn't  strike Hefty until Hefty .struck tbe  floor.    But the affair blew  over,  and  -(BUNTY  IBy ,G.  ISC?. Ogdcn  12 {_.(_. s /a  *  4  t  %  i*  -Copyright,cl902, by T. C. McClure'"  now he is crowing again.   So we hunt- j  ed up McGann,  who is a lightweight j  champion -now,  and offered  him  $S00 ;  to   go   up   against  Burke. '   The   mill .  comes off tonight nl   the  Macedonian j  club,  and poor, old    Zcfty thinks he's  up against the Macouoniau'club's train- j  er.   It '11 be rare to see his face when'  he  finds  it's  Spider McGann.    Spicier  will lay down in the ninth, and Hefty  will   simply  swell.   He'll, continue to  swell until the^Annual comes out. This  will be in it."      , ' >  '   He handed Hall a slip of paper.  In-a  scrawling hand was written:  This   is   to   certify  that   I, 'Spider  Mo- j  Gann,  laid /''.own in my light .with Hefty, j  ��������� Burke.

"Our proposition  is to give .you the' $S0O to meet Hei'ty  (���������tonight. ,11" we couldn't'tell, you from  Spider   McCann,   he   couldn't.  .You're  due   to  go  out' anyway,' so  it  won't  make very much,difference when you  'do,   only   we'd   want, you   to  stay  as  many rounds as you' could- for the sake  of appearances."   -,-  ���������Hall was thinking deeply.' "For the  church! For the ch_y.ch!" ran through  his head.    '    -& ���������   '  '* "Gentlemen,".- said  he,   "Spider . McGann pro tern, is at your service."  "You're a brick!" said Dix, wringing  Hall's hand. "Meet us here at 5, and  we can talk it over at dinner. And"���������  fishing in his .pocket���������"here's fifty to  clinch it. ' We'll give you the rest after  the mill."  At ,5 Hall was pacing the corridor,  when Burns and Dix came in.    After  To designate Smith from Smith, hoik  being named William, the people pt  Tow Head Junction resorted to the  primitive expedient of rechristening  them according to their distinct phj-'sic-  'al, characteristics. William Smith, 'the  widbwer, was.tallj so they gave him  the name of Shanghai; William Smith,  the bachelor, was short, and for twenty years they had'spoken to and of'hiin  as Bunty. Neither enjoyed, a middle  name, and neither. was resourceful  enough to supply a distinguishing initial. The .postmaster- at Tow Head  Junction, never knew ,-\vhether 'a letter  was for Shanghai or for Bunty. lie  could generally place, postal cards in  the proper -box by studying their contents.'     , ?  ,  Bunty,  by reason'of lack of' experience,    had(   matrimonial ' aspirations.  Shanghai,  who lived at the other, end  of tho village street,'was resting in full  enjoyment   of  the   respite   death   had  given him from a somewhat overstren-  uous term in the yoke.   When he tired  of his own cooking, he went and'stayed  with   his   married ' daughter  a ��������� week.  Bunty ,had/been seriously considering  the 'Widow Dunnigen for three j-ears.  He had gone over the ground and knew,  she was ready to become a member of  his household 'upon invitation.  Just;as  he had made up his mind to? make his  formal-proposal, he received a matrimo-  I'nial paper through the mail.   At least  j he got it out pf the post'office, aud it  j'was addressed to'William Smith.' The  | sender, may have intended it for Shang-  ' hai.       '"       ���������" " ���������'  ! That paper opened a new perspective  1 .to Bunty. lie never dreamed tbat the  matrimonial market,offered such possi-  bilities. Itj became plain - to him that  ! he had been fooling away- his time with  'the Widow'Dunnigen, faded, somewhat  wrinkled and owning but twenty-live  acres of bottom land.'- Here were la-'  dies���������the paper spoke of, them always,  as "ladies"���������-who appeared willing/to  marry anybody, "and some of'them had  $25,000 in cash. Bunty opened correspondence..0. To make sure his letters'-  would not fall into the hands of Shanghai,, he directed the, ladies to address*"  them -thus: ''^illiam' (Bunty) Smith.','  Y/illiam (Bunty) Smith scion began to  receive no fewer than two letters from  each mail. The superscription was so  unmistakably, feminine that the' postmaster mentioned it to the loungers. ]  They twitted Bunty and'told him he  -would prejudice his chances with the  Widow Dunnigen if he persisted in his  trifling   with   ladies'   hearts   by   mail.  Tow Head before Bunty left stopped  two women got off.

J What he was after was bigger fish.   He  j finally sifted the choice down to two.  j According    to    their    uucontroverted  j statements one was a widow with $12,-  i 000 in mining stock, the other a maiden--  lady of mean's.   Her mysterious reserve  on the question of means led Bunty to  believe she must at least own a bank,  possibly a railroad.   To these ladies he  sent his  photograph, taken ten  years  previously,    when    he    attended    the  Grand   Army   encampment.    He   also  gave them to understand that he was  able to support a wife as a wife should  be supported and  that he did not so  much value means as a faithful heart  and a face free from wrinkles.  Bunty made progress. He arranged  with the two women to meet hirn on a  certain day in the city, twenty miles  from Tow Head Junction, one at the  union station at one hour, the other at  the post office at another. One "was to  wear a pink, tlie other a white rose.  Bunty marked himself apart from all  mankind by tying a red ribbon in his  lapel buttonhole. " He did not go to  tho .post ofiice that morning, but took  tho 9:10 train for the city. When  Shanghai went after his mail the postmaster handed him a letter. "Ain't for  Bunty, I reckon," he said,' "as it's addressed , jist William." Shanghai  opened the letter and read:  Denr William���������Looking at the map, I  see Tow.

Tow Head.  valuable points as to Hefty's style of  boxing, the three entered a cab and  were driven rapidly to the Macedonian  club.  It was precisely 8 o'clock when the  Rev. Charles Aloysius Hall, clad in  green trunks, faced Hefty Burke. That  gentleman's face was a study. Beyond  a doubt he was suffering from the  shock of recognition.  "Not  quite   so  easy   as   last time,"  Burke     muttered    between    clinched  teeth,* and  Hall could  not restrain  a  t chuckle.  "Time!"'. The referee's voice sounded  in 'almost absolute stillness. Then at  it tbey'went. Hefty was nervous and  Hall was cool. He could imagine himself back at the gym in his university  days. He side stepped Hefty's sledgehammer blows; he dodged and ducked  in a manner Unit brought the crowd  to its feet. He would do his utmost to  stay those nine rounds.  In one of the boxes Burns and Dix  were hugging each other.  "It's great, great!'' said Dix. "Hefty  will surely think it was Spider."  And there was even more cause for  Hefty to think so when the end came  rather  suddenly   early   in   the  eighth.,  Hall ducked a vicious jab and at the  same time swung with his'right.   The  blow*   landed   with   terrific    force   on  Hefty's neck, and he went down blow- j  ing like a grampus.    Then tlie referee j  . counted  oil ten  seconds.     The crowd  howled.     U was some mi mi tea before j  Hall realized what had .happened, and j  when he did he vaulted the ropes and j  broke for his dref-sing room, while be-'i  hind him the cheering redoubled.  At Cedarville'two days later Hall received the follOAviag letter:  Rev. Charles Aloysjus Hall:  Dear Sir���������You will probably wonder how  we know your name and address. A card  fell from your pocket in your dressing  room, a-nd we have g-uarded it jealously.  Your secret is safe with us.  It was because we had the card that,  we let you depart that night without  saying more about the money after you  had refused it because you claimed you  had broken your contract by flooring:  Hefty.

Bunty was to meet Caroline at the  union station in the city at 10 o'clock.  Caroline was the maiden lady with  means. He had named 1 o'clock as the  hour for seeing the widow who held  the mi rung stock at the post office. The  widow also consulted time tables and  maps.

The tipping habit is bad enough everywhere, and is worse iu Europe than  here. cIu Ihe eighteenth century it was  a greater evil than it is now. A writer  in the Cornhill Magazine tells some  stories to illustrate the old condition  or" things.  In Edinburgh in 170*0 the Society of  Clerks enacted that all servants should  be forbidden to take tips and members  be forbidden to give them. This example was lollowed by other clubs and  societies., Today there is the rule in  most clubs against feeing the servants.  An eccentric Irish gentleman, Lord  Taaffe. used to attend his guests to the  door, and if they offered any money io  "tbo.servants'who were lined up with  the guests* baggage,' the host would  suy, '���������.If you give, give it nie, for it was  1 that did buy the dinner."  A well known colonel while sitting  at dinner inquired the names of the  host's servants. "For," said he, "I cannot pay them for such a good dinner,  but 1 should'"like.to-remember them in  my will."  Another eccentric gentleman, after  patiently redeeming his hat, sword,  cane and cloak, to the very bottom of  his purse, turned-.to the two remaining servants who were waiting obsequiously, each'with a glove, and said  affably: "Keep those. I will not trouble-to'buy them back. They are old  and not worth a shilling."  I_fe S-S-faijiiisgr Q,_uli{-������es.

The Intex-national Congress for Ap-  , plied Chemistry held a second plen-  ! ary sitting in Lcrlm recently, during  which iSa* "William, Crooh.es delivered  aa address entitled "'luodeni Views  on , flatter:' The Idealization of ,a  Dream." The lecturer said that for  nearly a century men of science had  been, dreauung of atoms, molecules,  and ultramundane particles, and had  been speculating as to the origin of  matter. They had now got so far as  to admit the possibility ui" .resolving  i the chemical elements into simpler  forms of matter, or even of refining  them away altogether into ethereal  vibrations  or electrical energy.  Sir Willia'm Crookes then    gave   a  brief  account  of  some  in\estigations  bearing on  the     consiitulion  of matter  and     the possibility of dissociating  the  chemical  elements.       lie    ror  marked    that a    number of isolated-  hypotheses'    as' to ' the    existence of  matter iu an ultra-gaseous state,  tho  existence of material  particles smaller than atoms,  the'existence, of electrical atoms or electrons,   'tho    constitution ,of Koentgen rays and their  passage through opaque bodies,     the  emanations from uranium,   -and   the  dissociation     of the    elements     were  now     welded     into    one harmonious  theory by  the  discovery of    radium.55"  After paying a high tribute    to   the  labors of' IV1. and Mme.   Curie e".d M. '  Bemont,     he _ proceeded to " <"   icribo  some' of the characteristic of .,;diurn.  He  said that  the most strik'.:g .property of radium was its    power'   to'  send forth torrents,of emanations. A  .convenient method of ^observing these  emanations was to fit a blende screen"  at the end*-off a 'brass    tube    with, a  speck of radium ������������������ salt in front   about  a millimeter off and to have' a   ;lens  at the other end.      The    emanations ;  could .then  be1- observed in the   * form,  of'scintillations   on, tho screen.      In  conclusion,   Sir' William Crookes     remarked with regard-to this and oth-  *er experiments: ,       "'.-.,���������  "Indulging in a 'scientific use of the  imagination'   and  pushing  the  hypothesis  of the electronic    constitution  of matter to what I consider its logical limit,     we may���������be in fact?    witnessing-a spontaneous dissociation of  ��������� radium���������and wc begin to doubt - the  permanent .stability  of  matter.  ' The  chemical atom may be? actually . suffering    a    catabolic" -transformation,-  but  at so  slow  a rato that,   suppos- .  ing ra    million  atoms   'fly  off     every  second,  it would take a century    -for'  its.weight  to  diminish by'one milli-t  gramme. \ '      '"   '   .

Our   ft  views  to-day  of- the constitution,   of   <J  matter  may   appear satisfactory    to  us,' but how will it be at the    close  of the twentieth' century? Are we not  incessantly   learning  the  lesson1 that  our    researches    havo only a provisional value?

Mr Young is a  good fellow, he is giving quite a  little work to the independents, and  he should, in return, be supported  openly, aud not in  a  half-hearted,  . sneaking way by an "'independent"  sheet which is cavilling for Conservative money. Better hop off the  perch, Mr Independent, you will  never get the Conservative patronage, and the Liberals will not be in  a position to give you much/  ?  The Jnde-*' Enterprise " makes  further reference to the miners who  came here from 'Frisco. As before  stated, Mr Matthews has informed  us that the Company gave order* in  San Franc-sco that therelw.-.s room  here for a certain number oi skilled  miners. Ino day work men vveie  wanted, and no feet wage was promised them. The 'Company has  a perfect right to engine skilled  miner? from anywhere, pioviued  they fill all legal requirements.

There ia  no other eligible man iu the constituency on  the Conaervative Bide, aud there eeemy lobe j  no outsider who is willing to throw away  several hundred dollara in an unequal contest."  The above item, from the Victoria  Times of 12th, is the most remarkable lie of the age. Even d:d Mr  Grant not contest tbe seat, who is it  that says "There is no other eligible  man." Does the correspondent imply that the district contained no  other man fit to contest the seat?  or does he mean the Tories, like the  Grits, should throw down a resident  candidate .just as th*-*y did here.

He then engaged in,log--  , giu'g at Union Wharf for Chaunoey  Carpenter, who owned the present  Haslam Mills' at Nanaimo, and  afterwards was employed as sawyer  in Carpenter's Mills' for a time. He'  was ' then employed by the, same  firm\at Wellington for about five  years when . Carpenter left, the  country. Messrs Grant & Mon nee  then entered into partnership and  took up- Carpenter's business in  'Wellington which they continued  for several years, removing afterwards to Cumberland' where they  have resided for the last 15  years. Mr Grant has large interests1 both in this town and dis-.  trict. Mr Grant is a native of Pic-  lon N.S., and has a number of relatives in this, Province, amongst  them being Mrs Matthewson and  Albert Grant of Comox, and Mrs  Ray of Union Wharf. The first  lumber building . in Union was  built by Mr Grant. Old, residents  will remember the original shingles  sawn out of fir logs when ihey first  began operations here, and hou.-es  had to be roofed somehow. Mr  Giant therefore ranks among the  pioneers of the district. Of a genial  and kindly disposition, Mr Grant  counts his friends by the score, aud  has the reputation of being a very  successful business man. Indefatigable in his public duties, charitable  to a fault, Mr Grant.bears a reputation that any man about to enter  public life may well be proud of.  His life's story while in B.C. shows  that he has at all times been, in the  strenuous part of life. His lot has  been cast, not among college men  and professional people, but among  the lumbermen and the logger, and  the builder. He has been a payer  of wages, and the numberless friends  he has earned for himself, among  his. numerous employees, in various  parts of the country, shows better  than anything else, the sterling  qualities of the man. Not a man  who has eVer worked for Grant but  will cast their vote for him if they  have one.  i  The Inde-Enterprise of last S it-  urday, says; speaking of publishing  a sketch of Mr Grant's Hie, .that  "owing to,that gentleman being indisposed". &c. Mr Grant was not  "indisposed",'wketi the Independent  representative called. He received  the gentleman, and infotmed him  that, as he considered "the " Enterprise" a-Liberal paper, it would  not look well for him to ignore a  Conservative paper, which was supporting him, iu the matter, and  begged to decline giving his life  history to the reporter. This is the  true reason of Mr Grant's life sketch  not being published in" the Independent- Enterprise. It appears today in the " News."
