Hortense   had   complained   of  headache.     In   the   house   there  was  hammering      and   > every      kind      of  noise.     A  carpet  was  being1 laid  ' in  -the  room  where   the  marriage    cere-  mony     was    to take place���������the so-  called   ''vaulted  room" -in..the  oldest  -part of the old house���������and the noise  ���������disturbed the baroness so much that  she  , fled      from     it.        They  drove  "through     the      hot,   narrow   streets,  ���������and   suddenly   the   coachman   turned  into   the  Wassergasse.     Laicio   started; it was the street where his ho'use  was!   ��������� She  turned, her  head   to,    the  ���������other    side;     but���������see there!   on the  narrow sidewalk 'the Frau Counselor  was     walking    jn   a  slow,   dignified  'manner,  and  before hor a very    tall  figure in a gray-colored sateen dress  .n-nd  a I-tenibrandt  hat  trimmed  with  waving    'feathers.     -As   the   carriage  ^approached   them   Lucie   bent    clown  to pick  up  her handkerchief,     which  'and  .- es-  , "Tlie  train may  be  belated," 'said  fAicie.

"Then, perhaps, Herr Weber waited for the Hamburg train���������it comes  a quarter of an -hour later���������so as to  bring  his brother with him." ,      '  3-Jortense shrugged     her     shoulders  impatiently.  ���������    "That is,not exactly gallant.*"  The -noise of whpcls was now  hoard in the street by the gate, and  a moment after the carriage drove  into the cpurt-yard with no one sin  it.  Hortense  turned  pale  as   death.  ''He has not come/  appaient coolness.  "There  is   another  hours,   Hortense."

"Well, if they had put that figure  on.-the pedestal in the Xicdor.wald.  travelers''on the steamboats could  noC complain" any long?- that it  looked too small.

'A boll rang behind them; Lai-  -*cie recognized the penetrating sound  '-of the tones,  although she had only  'theard it  once!     It was  the   bell-    on  "Dr.-,Adlcr's little gate.

She looked at him steadily.    "Do you

the same until life is put away."

were made for something better than''

his heart thumped that it was danger-
. ously sweet to hear Bessie Stuart say
"Jack" in_ that soft, appealing way.
. The'.friends of handsome Jack Hammond would, one and all, have told you
he was an idler, but his father was
one of the wealthiest men in Boston.
From a mansion in Beacon street to a
little three room house in one of the
busiest portions of the city'is quite a
distance, both socially and financially,
but Jack had done away with it easily
in his acquaintance with Bessie Stuart.
They had met nt a ball a year ago at
.Mrs. Ostrander's, Bessie's aunt, a
wealthy society woman, who. -when
Mr. Stuart died, opened her doors to
his widow and daughter.
Bessie had stoutly refused. "No,
aunt, 1 cannot,-"- she had said, "even
though you are papa's sister. Mamma
and I will live alone, and you will see
that I shail take care of her beautifully."
Mrs. Ostramier socrctty admired the
proud independence' of her favorite
niece and was always devising plans to
have her with her ns often as possible.

It was Dicky Donnelly, drunk. The
forty rod had taken effect. Dicky felt
himself that it had gone to his head
just a little. Drunk as he was. though,
he sat up straight, but swaying from
side to side, and tried to listen. The
six or eight bankers whom he saw
finally dwindled down to one. and this
one, who had seen Dicky enter and
seat himself, poured forth his whole
soul not upon the old men. not upon

Donnelly he saw himself as he once

Early   in   the  sixteenth  century the-
natives of  Porto  Rico  plotted to  kill'
the Spaniards on the Island. There was.
much doubt, however, as to .whether or-
not it was possible to kill a Spaniard-.
Many  of -the  natives   insisted  that  it
was   not.    Finally   it  was  decided  to
make an experiment. - A young Spaniard who.was passing through an Indian   village   was  hospitably   received'
and fed and then a number' of natives
accompanied him on his journey. When
he arrived at a  river his companions,
offered to carry him across.  The young -
man  accepted  and  was taken   up by
two  men  and   carried  into  the  water
on their shouiders.   Arriving near the
middle  of the   river,   they   threw  him
in and held him down until he ceased
to   struggle.    Then   tbey   carried   him
ashore  with profuse apologies,   loudly,
proclaiming chat they stumbled by" accident and   calling  upon  him to arise
and   continue , his   journey. .But   the
young man  did not  move and finally
the   natives   were   convinced   that   he
was   actually   dead.    Having   secured
the proof thoy wante_. the leaders of
the rebellion at once began a general,
attack upon the .Spaniards.

McClure       ������  Ever since they had come to Perkins-  ville De Peyster and his mother, bad  failed to adjust tbeir respective standpoints to a mutual harmony.  To begin with, it was spring.    With,  the delicious odor of resinous  smoke,  from the boughs that had banked the  house   assailing   one's   nostrils,   who  could   resist   joining  the   dancing  silhouettes tbat circled the bonfire and-  - daring one's i'ato by leaping across it  in    swaggering    competition    as    tbe  flames died down?"    .  Bat she drew lurid pictures of, his  certain fate if ho should-repeat tbe offense. Blind defiance rose ' insurgent  within him���������he would go! And then  all of a sudden be remembered whac  Iris father said and bung his bead to  think how those grave, kind  bis would look at him now.  "Takegood caro of mamma,*'he bad  said at tbe last. "You must be h/'i" big  brother and never let her worry about  a you,' she's so little' and delicate."' And  then he had whispered' over two or  three times, "My pretty-little wife���������my  deai"nt"ue���������-girl!" ' - '*  And De'Peyster had tried with all  bis might to remember. But often it  did seem as if it would-have been a  little easier if she could have under-  ' -stood that one was disgraced if  did not keep neck and neck with  other fellows" in every prank they  played.,  ��������� There was a longhand, weary period  of door-yard discipline after this episode. There were a good many times  when "De Peyster had to clinch his  fists as tight as he could and remember his-father very hard.  By and by June came., quivering with  gold green sunlight,-perfumed with-a  universal blossoming and pungent with  .water. - .  'As for De Peyster himself, the numbness of despair settled upon him. Now  he could',never learn to redeem himself, to have some day perhaps the ineffable joy of being the first in, ahead  of Jimmy Spratt, ahead of Micky Daly,  ahead of everybody. His career was  ended before it had begun.  "But I got to not let her worry,"  was the rueful- conclusion be always  reached. And then he breathed hard  and winked fast.  Jimmy was his constant friend and  brought him alleviating messages from  time to time, such as that the oth-**  fellers all said he had lots of sand and  could do as well as the next feller if he  had half a chance., ,  ' When even these encouraging remarks ceased to comfort, he gave him1  his own' horned toad as'a last desperate resort. The effect was wonderfully  'efficacious, but transitory.  "I'd  oughter  been  a  girl,"   said "Do  Peyster many times to himself, "but 1  wish sbe didn't want to make b-siiov'o I  j am one when 1'ain't." |  !

She was awakened from a dcze*  hy a   brisk-official   voice  demanding,  "Your papers, please?'*  "Do you mean our tickets?"  "No.  madam. , I have nothing to do  with the tickets.

'  i In July a light epidemic of, scarlet  . fever prevailed. The oldi-st inhabit-  ' ants called.it --walking scarlatina," the  1 illness was so'slight.  I- Mrs. Van Voorl kept D-> Peyster in  I, tho house.  j     One day De Peyster ca^glit it.  i     He regarded it rather hi tho nature  i of a festal occurrence than otherwise,  i foi-all the beys who had lind it came  i vp to see him, and, altbuugb they were  o^e ! .not allowed to stand long, it cheered  ^lie '��������� him" amazingly Lo hear what they were  i doing, for he had constantly the hope j  i that these new delights they told of  ! one after another would not be ou the  ' forbidden list when he was out again.  I"    But after awhile he did not seem to-  ' care whether they  came or  not  and  dust'of the high plains sifted through  every crevice in the car, smarting and  irritating the throats and noses of passengers. Miss Mary Appleton w-as one  of the few who had not grumbled at the  dust, heat, lack of. mirages or slowness  of the service. Presumably her time  was too fully occupied. Thee Mayne  children, her three nephews,- demanded  her complete attention.  When Major Mayne. of the United  States army was ordered to the Philippines, his wife elected to ' go with  him. The children, were easily disposed of by their little butterfly of a  to the'Texas boundary."  - "Get off���������why?" she gasped.  "Orders, madam. The state of Texas  orders tbat,no passengers from San  Francisco cross the boundary line  without a quarantine passport. You're  right from there, "and you've surely  heard' of the report that bubonic  plague is i a Chinatown."   ,  "I heard nothing of it," she rejoined.  "Well, that ma'y.be. However, 1 am  here to see that the Texas quaraiiline  | laws are obeyed." The conductor came  up an'd.joined in the conversation. "It's  a great pity that you didn't look after  this when you bought','your .tickets.  The railway officials in San Francisco  woulc? have issued your certificate.  It's a wonder that they didn't,speak to  you about it."   -  Mrs. Mayne had bought the. tickets,  and Mary remembered with a sinking  heart  that  her  sister   had  carelessly  rnv    nm. , tossed aside a package ot" papers when  -neyed    to    San    h rancisco   -roi     nci { .^ ^^ Lhe ^^ fl,oin,tho envelope.  charges.      * .

Tboue is  ono way out of it; you can- make oath  in Chinatown,  or the precincts,within hl'tecu days.'" ,  "We .can easily do that."  It is tbe unexpected that happens,  and Bob's opportunity had come. "I  was in Chinatown 'last week with  Mike," he said loudly.'  Miss    Appleton < looked ' at   him    in  amazement.  Mike was the major's old  mother. "We'll send them east., I'll  telegraph Mary to come out and take  them back. It will be a nice trip for  her, poor thing!",  So the "poor thing," who was Mrs.  Maync's elder half sister, the Cinderella of the household, age reversed, left . -  her invalid stepmother behind and jour- j  San    Francisco   -for    hor j  are   with   us,"   Mrs.  Mayne had cooed to her upon her ar  rival,'but the-irresponsible little lady j -������ ������- ���������^^ii^nl  had left all packing and bouse c ear ng ; *        J prec<iuets witbin Qt*  arrangements   until   the   last   minute,  and it  took, all  of   Mary-'s  time  and  sound sense' to evolve order out of confusion.

Then collars came off, coats  "followed, as they ran with undiminished speed, the follow who was farthest ahead sometimes slowing up with  magnificent daring to get off his shoes  and stockings while the others were  still hampered by shirts and trousers,  and by the time they tumbled in headlong competition over the * bank the  nimblest carried their entire wardrobe  on their arms and flashed whitely into  the water while the laggers fumbled  at their shoe lacings. The unfortunate  -who popped into the river, flushed and  panting, after all the rest were in was  greeted with taunting cries of: "Lubber last!   Lubber-last!"  De Peyster had never been told not  to go in swimming. It had not occurred to his mother as among thc list of  his possible perils, as she was in blissful ignorance of the fact that "the other fellows" did it.  So it was with the thrilling exult-  ance of tbe*~Greek runner that he set  his toe on the line with the rest and  hurled himself forward, head up and  elbows in.  The first few rods it felt like flying.  His feet scarcely seemed to touch the  ground. Then a pair of legs flashed by  him, and another and another. He  - gathered Ms strength and shot for-  ��������� ward again, but another pair of legs  went by, and another and another.  They were  tearing off their  coats;  they  were  stripping  off  their  shirts.  He felt rut-his collar,  wrenched it off  and flung it away, to have both bauds  free for his coat and shirt.   They, were  almost at the bank now.   He could see  Micky Daly's white skin dazzle in the  sun as ho took a splendid dive ahead  of the rest.    His own feet wero growing heavy, and there was a  mist be:  fore his  eyes.    The knot in  his shoe  lacing would not come untied.   A savage rage filled him..   If he could have  cut off bis foot to rid himself of tho  hampering   shoe,   he   would   scarcely  have hesitated.   You were ruled out if  you went into the water with anything  left   oh.     As   he   struggled   and   perspired and agonized the two or three  whom  he  had  distanced  leaped past  him   and as he shook the shoe off at  last'and made his dive he beard the  air ringing with, "Lubber last!    Lubber last!" and slowly realized that it  was meant for him.  He tried manfully two or three other  days but it was always the same way.  His muscles were flabby from the door-  vard discipline, and he could not pick  up in a few weeks what the others had  acquired through joyous years of summer vagabondage.  He took it quietly and good natured-  ly, but it went deep.  His   mother   found  out  the  custom  for his life like a-, little Trojan  isn't any use."  '   The voice broke and then went on:  "He's a bravo little chap, brave  enough to face anything, and it isn't  treating* him square not to let him say  goodby. .  De Peyster opened his eyes. The doe-  tor was standing over him.  "You don't have to tell me," said  De,Peyster, for he dimly saw that^the  _i,i  /i^^.f^^'c. Hr\a -wwe-: niiivorinsr.   "I���������  old doctor's lips were quivering  I guess���������I know."  He felt for his mother's hand.  "I'd like to hear you sing just once  first, mamsie," he said.  "There's a bully song one of the fellers taught me, 'One Wide River.' I've  liked it specially much since���������since it  worried you to have me go in swimming."  His mother sobbed out a few lines,  faltered and stopped.  A look of patient disappointment  came over his face. ���������  "Never mind, mamsie, you necdn t,  he gasped. "I'm going to see it, you  know, so it doesn't matter. Won't the  cool water feel good, though! And  don't you worry, - mamsie. Who's  afraid?   Father '11 find me!"  He lay quite still a moment; then he  whispered:  and Grover, lads of twelve, nine ana  six. They were hearty, healthy young  animals, who regarded the commands  of their gentle, mild tempered aunt in  the light of a perpetual joke.,- Th_ Pullman was crowded, and their fellow  traveler looked with manifest disfavor  upon the noisy, ill behaved boys.  Their section was nearest tbe drawing room, and Miss Appleton."occaslon-  ; ally caught glimpses of the tall,, stern  1 looking man with iron gray hair. He  seemed to. be 'always busy, either reading or writing, and her tender conscience"- prompted the hope that he-  ���������might be too much absorbed in his  work to be disturbed by the proximity  of her nephews. She had noticed his  critical,' disapproving glances at her  flock in the dining car. and once she  detected a smile on his face when she'  bad  made  ineffectual efforts  to curb  them. -  It was the fourth day of the journey  and a particularly hard one. Bob and  Tom had joined forces and teased Grover, who was quick tempered, into  such a fury of passion that he had  sobbed himself asleep on his, aunt's  knee. ; She sat in a cramped, uncomfortable position, holding the little tear  stained face against her shoulder.  The man in the drawing room looked  at her foi- a moment, then stepped out  and said quietly: "Let me take your  little boy. He can rest very comfortably on my sofa." Suiting the action to  the words, ho carried the sleeping child  to the couch and set the door ajar.  Miss Appleton's-lips trembled, and it  was with difficulty that she kept back  the tears. It was almost the first kindly words spoken in those hard and disagreeable days. There had been admonitions in regard to the boys being  take the boy into a place  of danger  The story was incredible.  Bob looked unblushingly at his aunt.  To Bob at that moment there were  things better than truth. The officer  looked down sternly at the little shrinking woman. "You'll have to bo ready  to is&t off at thc next siding.' You'll find  a box car there. The local freight will  pick you up'later and take yon to Dem-1  ing. There you will find out what it is j  best to do." ���������      ' - i  !

One of'the best  examples  of  these   fortified  rectories,  originallv built -iii  the fourteenth century, still exists in Itothbury.  It is described in.a list of fortlcts in .in-12 as a     -  "tonro and a little barm el: in. being tho  man'con of the p'sunngo of Itothbury.*'  It has walls elcvY-n  feet thick at  the  base and'six  feet at the top.* It  has  turrets at Ihe eoniers and a* chamber  with a stone floor, into which the'rectors drove their cattle at night or oa^  - approach of tbo raiders.  ' In S'-rfcset Accord. '  ' Some  years  ago  there  camo to an  American  city   a   delightful  German,  Herr vou Blitz., who intended tcsup-  ' port himself by giving lessons in his-  native lohgu-e.   When he had been here  several months and had secured a mod-  orate number of pupils,  he went one  day to the mother of one of .them- and .  to'her  great  surprise' asked for- her  daughter's hand in marriage.  "But,  my dear sir,"  said she,   '[my ���������  daughter has no fortune." ' ���������   <  The suitor smiled upon her in an ex- -   -  pausive generosity.  "Me, too!",said he reassuringly.  , "And, although we aro not rich,, we  have .thus-far been  able  to giye  her-  '  .every comfort.   She is indeed used to-  luxury."    ���������" ,       -'*..-',  "Mc. too!" was the smiling rejoinder.  "Bui:, Herr" von Blitz, she will never  be able to manage affairs."  '   "Me, too!" rejoiced the lover.  "And I feel obliged to tell you that"    .  my daughter has a very high temper."  "Me too!   Me too!"  That was enough. The mother retired rrom the contest, and the professor won his suit���������Youth's Com*onnibu.    -  "A  I'M  I  .--ftf  ' A  rcculiaritr  of  Jftlian.

The friendly j  gentleman lent a hand-in strapping va  lises and in gathering up the various  impedimenta of an overland journey.  There was evidently on his part no intention of questioning the wisdom of  the laws of Texas.  Miss Appleton's patience received its  crowning stroke when she mounted her  trunk as a step and was dragged by a  not overclean employee into the bo"X  car. She had hardly until then realized  the significance of their movements.  She had but a confused idea of the  goodbys of their fellow passengers generally, but the sympathetic tones of the  friendly man persisted in her mind.

Manx Barbarous Tribes Are Exceed
i *   ingly Deferential 'to ' Women.
Untraveied- people commonly I suppose that savages * always treat, theii
women badly, making mere slaves and
beasts of burden of them.* This- is
true.ln some cases, but many barbarians are exceedingly chivalrous to"
\vard. women.- "-*"    '
The Maoris of New Zealand alway
treat women with tbe greatest deference and respect, so much so that the
Earl   of   Ranfurly   once   called   them
"the "Iruest gentlemen on earth."- They
will not permit a woman to do any hare
Av6rk_ if they can do it' for her,  and
their   boys   are   taught  from   earliest
youth  that  rudeness   and unkindness
toward women are crimes only second
to lying and cowardice.
1 A  young  English  lady named Gertrude  Boll  traveled alone ' among thc
Druses of Syria.    She was eveiywhere
received   by   them  with  the   greatesl
courtesy and hospitality.   'Special tents
were   assigned   to   her   use,   and   the
sheiks vied  with  each  other in being
her bumble servants.     "No .well bred
English   gentleman   could   have   been
more chivalrous," she said, '"and they
were just as courteous to their own
women as they were to me."
The Fijians go to extremes. They
are so'deferential and polite to their
womenfolk that they let the lattei
"rule the roost" entirely. A woman's*
word is apt to be law in the Fiji islands.
As a rule, women1 occupy a subordinate place in the east, but Kafi-
ristan is an exception. The Kaffirs ar*
of Aryan origin and to all appearances
are a white race. They claim Alexander the Great as their ancestor ant)
have a lofty code of chivalry. Their
women, lovely creatures with fair
complexions, blue eyes and flaxen hair,
aro treated far better than most women in civilized society.

Constable end   Hi-"   Piet-arc.
Constable, the eminent British painter, once sat ou the hanging committee
of the British Royal academy when a
small landscape was brought up for
judgment and pronounced "awfully
bad" by everybody but himself. He
rose and made a short and startling
speech. "That picture was painted by
me. I had a notion that some of you
didn't like my work, and this is a
pretty convincing proof. I am very
much obliged to you." When his colleagues recovered from their stupefaction the head carpenter was bidden to
bring back the picture. But Constable
would not have it. "Out it goes!" be
said grimly.
A Monument to  C_eerf-al_eaa.
The following quaint epitaph is to
be seen in Crayford churchyard, Kent.
It strikes as one of the very prettiest
monuments to cheerfulness in all Mer-
rie England: "Here lieth the body of
Peter Isnel (thirty years clerk of this,
parish). He lived respected as a pious
and a mirthful man. and died on his
way to church to assist at a wedding
on the 31st day of March, 1811, aged
seventy years. The inhabitants of Cray-
ford have raised this stone to his cheerful memory and as a tribute to his long
and faithful service."���London Standard.
WUy Gold Is ilare.   <
tVIiy is gold so rare? Simply because
it is heavy. There are only two metals
that are heavier���-namely, platinum and
iridium. .Remember that at the beginning the earth was a body of gas. By
gradual condensation it became liquid,
while now the whole of its mass save
only an outer crust much thinner in
proportion to the whole bulk than is the
shell of an egg would be a fluid but for
the fact that it is held together by tremendous pressure. Naturally in the
course of its formation about a center
of attractiou the weightier particles
composing the globe gathered about
that center. Accordingly we find that
tbe earth as a whole weighs five times
as much as water, while the rocks
forming the crust are only about two
and a half times as heavy as water.

LIBERALISM AND MAKTINISM.  Every elector of Comox who has  at heart the we'lfaie of the district,  must recognize the grave  necessity  of- returning a Conservative candidate to.repiesent them, and defeating  every attempt?to  place Joseph  Martin at the head' of  the Liberal  party:,    Once before, ���������" by a scheme,  he was Premier of the Province, until he met tlie .electors at the polls.  It will not soon be forgotten how he  insulted  the people,<-f B C. in the  cabinet he formed, in placing Cory  S. Ryder at the head of  the financial department, but he later received  tbe  rebuke he deserved.      His  lack  of  poli ical  probity, has become a by-word far and  near.    He  found   it  expedient  to  resign   the  pobitiuii as leader of his party, and  Lit  them on   the eve of  a general ,  election without a platform, or hope  of success at the polls.-  The Liberals have been asked to make a definite  pronouncement   as  to   who  their   leader   will  be,   but  so   far  have  not attemp;ed  to answer the  question;   they  seem  to  diead  to  admit that Martin is ui in its vilest  form is their only platform, and Joe  Martin will be their leader.' He has  the ability, and "they shirk tht tas-k,  or dread the oonse.qu.ince of  opposing  him.      He seems to be the evil  ge- ius of Liberalism.    On the o:her  hand the Uo. servatives are composed of men universally respected by  bo.h parties, men of sterling wonh  and abilLy, Mr Charles Wilson-ol  Vancouver, being the acknowledged  Conservative leader iu the Provincii  His extensive experience as a public  man,   his clean   record during  the  years he represented  his constituency, the careful attention be has-  given to all public affairs during his  representation, jusiifv ;*_& in asking  for a renewal of that public  confidence to which every man  is entitled who has done his duty fearlessly and honestly.
