DAVIS  Mrs Davis, whose familiar face  and figure has been associated with  Union ever since its beginning, passed away at noon on Sunday la ft  Tho deceased lady had been a ������uf-  ferer for many months; and her  death therefore was not unexpected.  Neveriheh-88 the universal esteem  iri which she was held, the many  good deeds which are registered in  her favor, have caused a feeling of  general sorrow throughout the town  and the patrons of the popular  Union Hnei will miss the kindly  lady's c:ire.

Staffs, England. Living for many  year.-' in NanniaK*., Mrs David came  up to Union in its Ciwrt years ami  she was, at the time of her death,  the earliest lady resident of this  place. Ot unfailing kindness and  charitable disposition, there ia no  a resident oi Union and Cumberland-today, but. who feels that they  have-lost a friend, and sincerely  ���������mourns her loVs.

Drowning Accident  A sad accidentiappened at Sand  wick hst Wednesday by which F  S. Smith, a young man employed  by Mr S Piercy lost hie life. The  fact? are briefly that young Smith  after getting home from this place,  finished up hi- work and went to  . the Taoluii) river,'which skirts Mj  Piercy's fields, for a swim, in company with Mr Piercy's son and  several other lads. After entering  the river. Smith swam a little way  and suddenly gave a cry and sank.  A boy on the bank gave an alnrm  and the other b-.������ys,- who were swimming a little way up the river, at  once came to the drowning boy's  assistance, Matt Piercy even yetting  hold of him, but being f^rce:! t<> re  linquish his hold to avoid being  drowned liimst-lf. Suii'h tlien  sank for the Ja*-t time, and thpuj-h  the other lads-repeatedly dove for  him, they were unable ' to bring  him up and were finally forced to  abandon their atiemp's and run  for assistance, to-Mr Piercys, -By.  the ime the body ? was recovered  aiiout uu hour had elasped and life  wae quite* extinct. The deceased  boy had during hi*? short stay here,  gained the esteem of all with whom  he was thrown in contact. Latterly  he had driven Mr Piercy's milk  delivery wagon and his unfailing  good nature and courteous demeanour, made friends for him wherever  he went, so that exp-ess-ions of regret were heard throughout *he 'own.  None felt bis loss more than Mr  Piercy, who undertook the iask of  preparing for the funnal.iu a way  no wise different ths*n had he been  his own son, meanwhile com-  ���������nTunicati ng���������wi th���������the���������dead���������boy s-  pe-tple in New Brunswick, where  several sisters arid a brother are  left to mourn his loss. Word was  received from them to ship the re-  maint" home. Preparations were^  at once made to do this, but the  regular steamer having left before  word was rectived, Mr C Grant  kindiy offered to take the remains  to Nanaimo for shipment. Just  outside Comox harbour however,  the launot. MK'ints wttnt,out oi gear  and oars wete resorted io as far aii  Union Wharf where the (>a:-e was  stated to Captain Phillips  of th*- liner Aoraiiui, i-.fln coaling.  That otUcer at oik.u offeted to carry  the remains to Vancouver, anil  most generously declined payment  of any kind. His kind action will  be long remembered.' Tlie Aorangi  pulled out from tho Wharf ai G a-:n  Sunday. Word has been received  thnt some of the yoiing man's relatives will meet the remains at  Vancouver.

'���������She*" is a very strange woman,  Loida."  "I,dare say sho is a very awkward  and disagreeable woman; bin, then,  it is the mother in thc .woman you  will have to deal with. All .mothers  are gentle and kind, I am sure.  Everything will, tome right, Francesca���������I am, sure it will���������and you  will lovo each other when Lancelot  comes back as you never could  have loved had you not been separated. Ah, Francc-scsi, all 'women, in  one way or other, have to find out  that of all the sorrowful things in  life the hardest of all is loving."  And the girl was for the time consoled, because Loida understood that  in the first hours of sorrow comfort  must often consist in promising the  impossible, and in asserting whatever is the desire of the "wounded  heart. Francesca wished to believe  all that Loida said; she therefore accepted her assurances, nnd took what  ..hope they promised her. Another  course might have v>een more prudent and less kind. As it was, Francesca suffered very much. No one  knew at the time how much, for the  - circumstances seemed to suddenly develop in her girl-heart a woman's reticence and noble restraint. For  some days thc affair was not spoken  of again, and. the squire noticed the  pallor of his daughter's face and the  singular stillness of her manner.  "Whatever is the matter with my  little girl?" he said to Miss Vyner  one afternoon. "She is either sick or  in trouble. Is it about that young  man, Loida?"  "Things    are    not   very    pleasant  about him, are they, Kashleigh?"  ���������-���������"No-���������th-ey���������are���������rt"ot"���������Jr~sra~sot~'td~  blame, am I, now?"  ������ '   "I cannot say you arc,"  .   "Woll, then?/' .  "Nay, brother, I never talked much  about  my     own   trouble;    it  is  not  ��������� likely I   will talk of Francesca's,   I  dare say she will tell you sooner or  later, whatever there is to toll."  "Hns he gone away yet? Tell mo  that much."  Before Loida could answer, the  door opened nnd Francesca entered.  The squire looked kindly at her,  \ and drew her chair close to his own.  She sat down and laid her head  against his big breast, and as he  silently stroked her head, she began  to cry. He was much moved. His  voice trembled with tho tears in it,  as he said;  "Fnineescn! "Why, honey! Why,  joy!    Whatever is the nuitter?"  "Lancelot, has gone away trom England,  fa thei."  "Me will come back, I'll be  bound!"  "He says he will not como back,  lie gave mo back my troth, He  says  I must forget him I'oivver,"  "The impudent rascal! lie gave  thee thy troth! My word, but he  was never  worthy of thee!"  "Fat.her. you must not, sny a  word against Lancelot, It is bo-'  cause he is so noble, y.o honorable,  so truly /ond of me that he gave up  our engagement, I want you- to Iind  mlt where, he 1ms gone to, Hu did  not  tell  mo,"  "Nay, my dear, I will not do  that, If he has gone, Jet. him go.  l-'ratieeseu    Atle-i'trin    is   lie!

Why-n! it is not maidenly to talk that way."  "Father, I do not live In scraps  and little bits as soma women do;  an hour of lovo und an hour of  merry-making, a thought about  ninn-iagp nnd so on���������l lovo you with  all my heart-���������I would not for ono  weok give you up, father, to he  queen of England.

"It would not be kind of thee. Forgot, and let him forget."  "No; I will not forget. He may  forget, if he can. I will not forgot.  I will remember, and I will love him  to the end of iny life."  "Dear me! What stubborn stufT  women are made of!" And he looked  half reproachfully at. Loida, , who  sat, with an expression o* approval  on her face, opposite to Ir-m.  "Brother," she answered, in reply  to  his  accusing glance���������"brother,  it  ls a very good thing for men generally that women are made of stubborn stuff. I cannot think what men  would do if women were not so mado  as to believe black was white, and  stand to their conviction."  "To be sure!   To be sure!"  "Father, you will find out for me  where Lancelot has gotie to. I cannot do such a thing as that for lny-  scli     Can 1?"  "1 should think not. Don't theo  cry in such a way as that. Thou  breaks my heart.* I will do what'''  thou asks me to do; but I tell theo  plainly I would deal rather not do  it. And don't thee try my'love too  far. I would call it taking a mean  advantage of a fond heart."  He rose with the words, and going  to the window, he said:  "It is raining hard. But I think I  -wili-go-feo-the���������stables-a-bit,���������-���������Thore-  aro always things that should be  done there in bad weather. And  they will not get done if somebody  does not see after them."  It was an errand mado to escape  the sorrowful atmosphere of tho  room, and perhaps neither of thc  women wa,������. sorry for it. The squire  was evidently only sympathetic in a  small degree, and Francesca felt as  if the world ought to turn upon the  axis of hor loss. Nothing else in it  appeared worth thinking- about or  conversing about, and she sat down  in thc large chair her father had just  vacated, tho very picture of woe,  For a short time Loida remained  silent. The rain beat against the  windows; the fog shut the nearest  trees and shrubs from sight; vision  was restricted to the room in which  they sat; and, except for tho leaping,  blazing fire and tho shining steel  grate and hearth furniture, tho room  partook of tlie gloom outside, Tho  pictures were dim, tho furniture almost black, tho carpets darkly indeterminate, the curtains hail a depressed "hang," the china ornaments a ghostly pallor, and there  wns no cheerful sound to appeal to  another sense.; only tho wind wailing  round tho garden nnil dashing the  loose ivy sprays against tho casements,  Youth is so impatient of suffering,  nnd Francesca was not only nma/ed,  but almost, indignant, at tho cruel  fate which had suddenly deprived her  of Iter happiness, Always before, in  all her small trials, she hud received  instant and unqualified sympathy; always heioro the squire had been sui'-  firieiit to being lier help or relief.  She would not believe but that ho  could, if lio would, bring back Lancelot, She was sure Lancelot was going nutty for want of money, and  sho felt her father's silence on this  subject to be particularly unfeeling,  She hud still a childish idea that  her father's resources were unlimited;  und she wiih certainly feeling, at  that hour, that the chief and most  desirable usn of money was to bring  home again her lover,  "What is tho um' of being rich,"  sho asked Loida, "if you cannot uso  riches to save love? There Is nothing  on earth better than lovo, oh, Loida?"  "Yes, there are things better than  love���������nobler limn lou* ��������� without  which any lovo worth having cannot  exist."  ..'et   .   i..  i  .... V       t-  ovorvtVtltig  love."  "Vou might glvo vour llfo. but yet  thoro is something you would not  gise, something mure precious than  ble���������honor. 1 know what vou em  thinking, Fraiu*enca. I know you era  Inclined to bin ine your good father  for not offering Lancelot mortoy  enough to keep him In Fngland.

"It is easy to talk of 'honor,' Loida. Honor! Honor! What is it? A  noisy nothing, invented by the proud.  Am I to lose love for honor? And  how is Lancelot's honor at stake?  I do not understand. He spent all  his money in that dreadful mill, for  his honor. Our marriage was put off  because his money was gone, and it  was not 'honorable' to ask for mo  while he was poor. Ono can understand how poor women sudor for  love, in some way or other, all their  lives long. But it is not fair to  throw 'honor'  at their hearts also."  "Being what you are, Francesca,  honor obliges you to bo noble in all  things; and so to nobly deny yourself, even in love."  "I shall die for 'honor,* then. I  cannot livo long without Lancelot."  "Other women have loved and lost,  and lived on."  "I am not 'other women.' Every  one is cruel to mo, oven Lancelot.  Why did he go away without seeing  me? If there was any dishonor in the  case, I would have forgive*} him the  dishonor."  "Lancelot would never forgive himself. I should say that a dishonorable thought was impossible to him.  There may be circumstances unknown  to any one, making it a kind of dishonor to see you again. And do not  speak lightly of such self-denial. For  no one can annul dishonor; it is irreparable, and though its loss may  be forgiven, who can restore it? A  fleece stained by the dyer never regains its whiteness. A character  stained by dishonor never recovers  the glory of a stainless integrity."  "Do not preach to me, Loida. I  am so miserable."  There was a few minutes' silence.  Francesca sat with hor head thrown  back and her eyes closed. Loida's  hands were busy with her crochet,  but her heart was in a ���������'empest of  feeling, of uncertainty, of pitiful  sympathy. She glanced upward; the  storm was unabated, the room growing more and more gloomy. Francesca's face was the imagine of despair; its pallor was the dull pallor  of heartache. The child was suffering greatly; no one knew that better than Loida Vyner.  Stie came suddenly to a determination. Then she put aside her trifle  of work and took her chair to Francesca's side. Francesca let her clasp  her hand. It was cold, and the limp  fingers    made no   responsive   effort.  CONDEMNED AS FOOD  NEARLY  EVERYTHING  WORTH   EAT-  I      ING HAS BEEN UNDER A BAN.  She had made~up her mlnclTb bear  her sorrow without discussing it.  "Francesca, my dear."  "Yes,  Aunt Loida."  "Look at me and listen to me. I  am going to tell you about Dick  Alderson: Dick was���������I hope in  God's mercy Dick is yet���������my lover."  Then Francesca opened hor eyes  and looked with interest into her  aunt's face.  "I never talk to any one about  Dick. I have not uttered his name  to mortal man or woman, except to  his dear mother, for ten years; yet,  Francesca, I love him���������I lovo'. him.  with all my heart and soul. Must I  tell you about Dick?"  "If you please, dear aunt."  "Your mother and I wero co-heiresses of a small estate near Tipham  Market. Our pnnonts died when we  wero young, We had no near relatives. Tho Aldersons wore friends;  wo went there very often, l,)ick was  their only child, and Dick loved mo  when I was a girl ten years old.

The other day tlio writer saw a  young girl upset hoiiio salt at tlio tablo  nnd thon pick up a pinch and throw It  over her left shoulder.

Salt, as you know, Is a groat purifier. It prevent* deeuy, In a tonic and  Btrongthoner and is nocossary to the  health und even to tho llfo of men aud  animals.

It wu noticed in Farla whsn Kin*  Kdwara wm there that he always appeared in publlo with his right hand  gloved, but not his left, As it is a common practice to carry the right glove  loose, and not tho left, much specula-  tion has been oxcltcd by the King's re-  vor������al of this custom. One learned  writer suggests .that It la due to a  sound pereeptlon of hygienic propriety.  Tho object or a glove, he iny**, it not  to adorn but to protect the hand. Which  hand has the more constant employment and ia therefore brought into closer contact with microbes? Why, the  right hand. It follows that in keeping  that bund plow! the King shews bla  unfailing sense.  From the D*ya of Adam There Has  Been Not Only Forbidden Fruit, bat  Forbidden Meats and Vegetable*.  The Peculiar Belief of "Toteml-m."  From the days of Adam and Eve to  the present time there has been not  only forbidden fruit, but forbidden  meats and vegetables. For oue reason or another people have resolutely  refused to eat any and all kinds of  flesh, fish, fowl, fyiits and plants.  Thus the apple, the pear, tho strawberry, the quiuce, the bean, the onion, the  leek, the asparagus, the woodpecker,  the pigeon, the goose, the deer, the bear,  the turtle and the eel���������these, to name  only a few eatables, have been avoided as if unwholesome or positively injurious to health aud digestion.  As we all know*, the Jews have loug  had a hereditary antipathy to pork. On  the other hand, swine's flesh was highly esteemed by the aucient Greeks and  Romans, This fact is revealed by the  many references to pig as a dainty bit  of food. At the great festival held annually in honor of Demeter roast pig  was the piece de resistance in the bill  of fare because the pig was the sacred  animal of Demeter. Aristophanes in  "The Frogs'" makes one of the characters hint that some of the others  "smell of roast pig." These people undoubtedly had been at the festival,  known as the Thesmophoria, and had  eaten freely of roast pig. Those who  took part in another Greek mystery or  festival, known as the Eleusinia, abstained from certain food and, above  all, from beans.  Again, as we all know, mice are esteemed In China and in some parts of  India, but the ancient Egyptians,  Greeks and Jews abhorred mice and  would not touch mouse meat. Rats and  field mice were sacred in old Egypt  and were not to be eaten ou this account. So, too, in some parts of Greece,  the mouse was the sacred animal of  Apollo,.arid mice were fed in. his temples. The chosen people were forbidden to eat "the weasel and the mouse  and the tortoise after his kind." These  ���������came-under-the-designation-of-uncleanr  But people have abstained from eating kinds of flesh which could not be  called unclean. For example, the people  of Thebes, as Herodotus tells us, abstained from sheep. What is the matter with mutton chops? Then,, the ancients used to abstain from certain  vegetables. Indeed, the Romans sneered at those Egyptians who did not dare  to eat onions, leeks or garlic, aud yet  tho Romans themselves were superstitious about what they ate or what they  should avoid eating.  In his "Romau Questions'* Plutarch  asks, "Why do the Latins abstain  strictly from tho flesh of the woodpecker?" In order to answer Plutarch's  question correctly it Is necessary to  have some idea of tlio peculiar custom  and belief called "totemlsm." There ls  a stago of society In which people claim  descent from and kinship with beasts,  birds, vegetables and other objects.  This object, which Is a "totem," or  family mark, they religiously abstain  from eating. The members of tho tribe  are divided into clans or stocks, each  of which takes tho namo of somo animal, plant or object, as#tho boar, the  buffalo, the woodpecker, the asparagus,  and so forth. No member of the bear  family would dare to eat boar moat,  but he has uo objection to eating buffalo steak, Even tho marringo law ls  based on this belief, and no man whoso  family namo ls Wolf may marry a woman whoso family namo Is also Wolf.  In n general way it may be said Unit  almost all our food prohibitions spring  from tho extraordinary custom generally called totemlsm. Mr. Swan, who  was a missionary for many years in  the Kongo Freo State, thus doscribos  tho custom: If I wero to ask tho Yoke  pooplo why they do not oat zebra flesh,  thoy would reply, "Chljila"~-i. e., "It Is  a thing to which we have an nntljia-  thy," or, bottor, "It is one of tho things  which our fathers taught us uot to cat."  So it seems tlio word "bashllaiig"  means "the pooplo who havo an antipathy to the leopard'," tho "basha-  lamba," "those who havo nu antipathy  to tho dog," and the "luiHhllanlanzefu,"  "thoso who liavo an antipathy to the  elephant." In othor words, tlio members of those stocks refuse to eat their  totems, tho siobra, the Jeopard and tbe  elephant, from which they take their  uuiuui.,  Tho _urviv.nl of nnt!r,><''.v to or-rtnlrt  foods was found among pooplo os  highly civillxod as tbe Egyptians, tho  Greeks and tho Romans. Quito a list  of animals whose flesh was forbidden  might Uo Uiuwu Up. i'ut ..Aau.mV'. lu  old Egypt tho sheep could not bo oaten  in Thobcs, nor tho goat In Mendcs, uor  the eat in Iluluistls, nor the crocodile  at Ombos, nor tho rat, which wiih sacred to Hn, tho sun god. However, the  people of one place hud no Ket-uplei  about eating tho forbidden food of another piitee, and tliU often led to 1'C  llglous dlsputei- and bad blood.  Among the vegetables tnbooert as  food by tho Egyptians may be mentioned the onion, tlie garlic ami the  ioek. Luelnn says that the iuhubUtui'*  of Peiasium adore*, tbe ouu/u, Acy..'  Ing to Pliny, the Egyptians used fo  swear by the leek and the onion. Juvenal pokes fun at those who thought it  a 6in to eat them. He exclaims, "Surely  a very religious nation and a blessed  peace where every garden is overrun  with gods!"  The survivals of totemlsm among the  ancient Greeks are very interesting.  Families named after animals and  plants were not uncommon. One Athenian genus, the Ioxldae, had for its  ancestral plant the asparagus. We  may be sure that this plant was tabooed  as food to every man, woman and child  of the Ioxldae,-  CAVE OF THE WINDS.  r  The   Vl-lon   Carved   In   Stone   Under  the HUIh of Dakota.

Persons who should have known better thought Westinghouse visionary  when they were told that he proposed  tr stop a train by air. Nobody seemed  inclined to let him try his plan on a  real train, but they did not object to  (his working a model of it in a shop  where lie couldn't do any harm, nor  involve anyone else in expense. He  knew that his schem'e would work, but  he could not make anyone else believe  it. So he continued to sell Ins invention for replacing derailed cars on the  track, and to talk about his brake to  any railroad man was willing to  listen.  '������������������'Woll, havo you ever stopped a  train with this air thing of yours?"  thoy would ask.  No, Ho couldn't say that he had  done so. Nobody would let him try it  even on a train of dump cars  One day he arrived in Pittsburgh,  selling his other iutfeiUion and talking  about his brake notion,to a man  connected with  a  railroad  out there.  '/That's a great idea of yours,"  said t!ie man, wo will try it on our  line!?'  So tho officials of this railroad permitted Wostinghouse to put his "new  "kickshaw" on one of their trains.  But ho had to agree to indemnify the  road for any damage tha^ might be  caused to the train as the result of the  trials! The train was equipped On  the designated day the confident inventor and a group of skeptical railway mien boarded the train on which  the first air brake was fixed. Off went  the train on its trial trip; the engineer put on full speed, and just as lie  had rounded a curve he saw ahead, at  a grade crossing; and in'the middle of  the track, a loaded wagon, a man and  a boy and a balky horse. Tlie engineer  moved ibis little lever, and the first  train that was ever stopped by air  pulled up at a standstill several feel  short of tlie obstruction.  Thus, on its first trial, the Westing-  house air brako saved life and prevented damage'to property. Thenceforward  talking was, unnecessary; all that had  to be done was to make brakes. The  inventor thought of that clause securing compensation to the railroad for  any damage he might do to the train,  and lie laughed. His fortune, dated  from that day.

Two days later the sick man  shot himself, and the revolver he used  was his own. He had unlocked the  drawer.  "We found the key In It," said the  doctor. "It was not, the one I had  given to tbe wife. I took It, and when  Iliad a chance I went quietly into the  room occupied by the man's mother.  The key exactly fitted the lock of her  bureau.

Its Formation In the Military Mfith*  ortx of Ancient Greece,  A phalanx in the military affairs ot  Greece was a square battalion or body  of soldiers formed In ranks and tiles  compact nnd deep with their shields  joined and pikes crossing each other so  as' to render it almost impossible to  break it. At first the phalanx consisted  of 4.000 men, but this number wns afterward doubled by Philip of Macedon,  and the douhle phalanx is hence often  called the Macedonian phalanx. I'oly-  bius describes it thus:  "It was a square of plkemen, con-  Bisfin*,' of 10 in (lank and 500 in front.  The soldiers stood so close together  that the pikes of the fifth rank extended threo feet beyond the front. The  rest, whose pikes were net serviceable  owing to their distance from the front,  couched them upon the shoulders of  those who stood before them and, so  locking them together In file, pressed  forward to support nnd push on the  former rank, by which mentis the assault was rendered more violent and  irresistible." The spears of thoso behind also stopped the missiles of the  enemy. Each man's pike was twenty-  three feet long. The word phalanx la  also used for any combination of people distinguished for solidity and firmness, a''grand phalanx consisted of  10,384 men.  What Hit Him.  Some years ago. while a gentleman  "was walking from St. James* park to  Pull Mall on a bright afternoon in summer, he suddenly received a -blow on  the shoulder which caused him to stumv  ble, and at the same time he heard a  loud, crackling noise. On recovering  he looked around for his assailant, but  there was nobody visible .except a policeman, who wns many yards away.  When the gentleman reached home.  Ms shoulder was examined, but no injury could be found to account for,the  pain in it. Soon afterward the servant,  who had taken away bis master's outdoor coat to brush it, brought back the  garment and pointed out that the nap  on the shoulder was pressed flat as if  a hot wire bad been drawn across it.  Everything, in fact, pointed to the  probability that the wearer had been  struck by a meteor.  The incident might well be used as a  -blackboard���������ijessou~for~-ehildren=ayer  and for some grownup children, too���������  who imagine that "shooting stars" only  ahoot.in the darfe.

If you enquire into the cause oi  sickness*, pain and .suffering, you will  rind that fully nine-tenths of it results  from derangements of the liver, kidneys and bowels.  This was the truth arrived at by Dr.  Chase when he began experiments  ���������which le I to the discovery of Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pius.  The liver and kidneys are intimately related as filters of the blood, and  the regularity of the bowels depends  on the healthful action of.the  liver.  Hence it happens that when the liver and kidneys are made healthy and  vigorous by the influence of Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills such diseases as biliousness, liver complaint,  kidney disease, indigestion and constipation soon entirely disappear,  With the liver and kidneys in  healthful working order, the purity of  the blood is ensured and you are protected against colds, fevers and contagious  and   infectious diseases.  As a family medicine to promptly  cure the most common ills of life  there is no preparation that can be  compared with Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills. In every neighborhood  there are people who have proven the  merit of this great medicine. Ask  them.  .Mr. Wm. Cook, Moosomin, Sask.,  writes:���������"! have been taking Dr.  Chase's > Kidney-Liver Pills and must  say they have done me a lot of good  1 have been a great sufferer from  diabetes and I can say to all who are  afflicted with this disease that Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills will.do  them good.

I had been staying for three or four  days with a squatter iu the foothills  of the Cumberland mountains when  he bad to go to the village, five miles  away, and I decided to accompany  him. As we drew near the town be  turned to me and said:  "Things may be all right here today  or they may be a leetle risky."  "How do you mean?" 1 asked.  "Waal, if Jim liarmer and Joe Styles  are iu town with their dawgs you want  to be ready to skip with me at a min-  nit's notice. If they hain't here, we  can loaf around aud have a good time."

Its liabilities are about  $156,000,000; its assets are about  $147,000,000; and the deficiency  about $9,000,000, represents the  amount which the ratepayers have  to contribute each year. The  figures indicate that it is a big  business. The management of this  big business is absolutely in the  hands of the city council acting  through its committees. As I haves-lid, the system is simple, and the  responsibility cannot be evaded as it  can bo in a muddled-up, complicated  system like that    of    New    York    oi  Chicago or Newark. The people know  what has to be done, and they know  who has to do it. But, even at that,  big figures are confusing to the average mind. And then, too, it is well  ������o submit the figures which a city  council publishes to an unsympathetic  eye. And so, because the people oi  Manchester propose to know what is  done with their money, they have in  their service two men whose business  it is to investigate and publish at  regular intervals, every tendency oi  the council toward carelessness or  extravagance. Never for a moment  are the councillors permitted to forget whose money it is that they are  managing with such fluent ease.  These two men are known as elective auditors. They are elected directly by the people, and the more  merciless their attacks on tjie council  the better they please the people.  They are free from the slightest obligation to the council. They have access to all facts and figures, i'or the  people of Manchester find it difficult  to understand why their government  managed by their personal representatives with their money, should not  work wholly in the light. These reports are published weekly in the  Manchester "City News.' ���������Samuel  Merwin in "Success Magazine."  CRIPPLING  SCIATICA.  A Sure and Certain Way to Cure this  Terrible   Torture.  There is just one sure, scientific  cure for sciatica, rheumatism, lumbago, neuralgia, headaches ��������� you must  drive the pain from your blood and  nerves with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  Liniments never cure nerve and blood  diseases. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  strike st"raiglTt~a"t"tlTe"~cOTse���������beea-use-  they actually make new blood. Through  the blood they conquer the painful  poison, soothe the nerves, loosen the  muscles and banish every ache and  pain. Mr. Thos. J. Etsell, Walkerton,  Ont., says. "When I began using Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills I had been off  work for three months. The cords  of my right leg were all drawn up and  J could only limp along with the aid  of a stick. The pain I suffered was  terrible. Only those who have been  afflicted with sciatica can understand  the misery I was in both.day and  night. I took six boxes of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills before they helped me, but  after that every day saw an improvement, and by the time I had used fifteen boxes, every vestige of the pain  had disappeared, I have no hesitation  in pronouncing Dr, Williams' Pink  Pills the host medicine in the world  for sciatica."  Every dose of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills makes rich, pure, health-giving  blood, That Is why they cure headaches and backaches, Indigestion, kidney and liver troubles, anaemia, heart  palpitation, and the Ills that aflllct,  women only.

"Unto One of the  Least of These"  B_ K1CHAED BARKER SHELTON  Copt/right, 1905, by Ruby Douglas  Van Ruyven followed the butler up  the wide Stairs, inwardly amused at his  own trepidation. It was most absurd,  he told himself, for a man to feel as he  did" under these circumstances. There  were certainly no logical grounds for  his vague fears. Still there was the  haunting possibility that the bishop  might raise objections. Remote this  possibility was, to be sure, but none the  less potent. Van Ruyven remembered  the time there had been a case pending  against him in the courts. It was a sil  ly case, trumped up by an ambulance  chaser. His lawyer had told him from  tbe first it was nothing to worry about.  And yet he had been more or less disturbed until tlie jury had brought in its  verdict in his favor. His position now  as he mounted the stairs in the wake  of the solemn butler seemed analogous.  At the head of the stairs the butler  r.  drew aside the leather portiere, and  Van Ruyven entered the big, dim  study. A fire crackled cheerfully upon  the hearth and sent flickering shadows  dancing up and down tbe rows upon  rows of books. Near by a green shaded  lamp threw a soft light upon a table  littered with books and papers.  As Van Ruyven crossed the threshold  a fine figure of a man rose from bis  seat by the table anjl came forward  with outstretched hand.  "Arthur, I'm glad to see you," said  the bishop, with a smile that left no  "doubt as to the sincerity of his words.  < "Sit down here by the fire and give an  account of yourself. I count myself in  luck that you take the trouble to come  up here to see me when Edith is in the  house."  He drew two comfortable chairs before the fire and motioned Van Ruyven  to one of them.  "Now, then, what sort of absolution  ~~do you "^^nt~tHis~time"?''~"th~^brsht)"ir  went on lightly, "or perhaps you came  up here because you knew I'd lej; you  smoke."  Van Ruyven smiled. "Thanks, I will  smoke if you don't mind," he said,  drawing out his cigar case. He selected  a cigar with as much care as .if the  fate of an empire hung upon his choice,  clipped the end and slowly 'lighted it.  He smoked abstractedly for a moment  or two before he turned to the bishop.  "The fact ls," Van Ruyven began, "I  have como to you tonight with a very  delicate mission."  "Ah, I see." Tho bishop's words  were formal, noncommittal, but his  clean shaven, kindly face lighted up  with a smile of understanding, and  thero was a hint of mischief In tho  gray eyes. Van Ruyven was looking  into tho fire again. He puffed nervously at the cigar,  "And this delicate mission?" tho bishop suggested mildly.  "I caihe, sir," said Van Ruyven,  speaking very slowly, "to ask you If  you would hnvo any objections to ine  as���������as Edith's husband���������that Is," ho  amended quickly, "if Edith herself has  no objections. You seo, I haven't ascertained that as yet."  Tho bishop straightened himself In  his chair. With his broad shoulders  and his iron gray hair ho was a decidedly Imposing man. Just now ho regarded his guost with nn odd expression, half of affection, half of amusement.  "So you came to me first,** he said  quietly. "Rather a rare procedure In  theso degenerate days. You show a  dellcato deference, sir, to eortaln Ideas  thnt I Inherit from my ancestry on tho  othor Hldo of tho Mason and Dixon line.  I think I shall'havo to Index you as it  master tactician," ho ondod playfully.  "Then you hnvo no objections lu tho  matter?" askod Vim Ruyven.  "Bless my soul, no," laughed tho bishop, "and If I road Edith rightly Bhb litis  none either."  Ho loaned forward In bis chair and  regarded tho youngor man Intently.  His face became suddenly grave.  "Thero ls souiotblug about Edith,  however, that I must confide to you,"  " ho snid, "something that no ono alive  knows save I, myself.

"Why, she has your ideas and your  traits. She even has your penetrating  way of looking at one."  "I don't ttiink the accident of bei  birth has made very much difference  with her or with me." the bishop said.  "My own daughter oould not have been  more to me. Arthur." Tbe bishop's  ares roe moist 0*. his earnestness.  "She has never once disappointed me.  Even her intentions seem to be mine."  *       *       *       *       *       *       *  There was a commotion downstairs,  then the sound of fobtsteps on the polished stairs, and a vigorous knock ou  the lintel. The portiere was whisked  aside, and an excited mi? kl came into  the room���������so excited that sbe gave no  heed to the bishop's frown of mild reproof at her unseemly entrance.  "Plaze, son" she gasped, "Miss Edith  do be wantin' yer downstairs at wance,  Bor. They's been a baby lift on the  doorstip."  The bishoo almost snrang from bis  chair.   "A what?" he said.  "A baby, sor, lift on the doorstip,  sor." .  "There seems something almost ominous in this coincidence, Arthur," he  said nervously. "Pardon me a moment.  I'll be back directly."  After the bishop had left the room  Van Ruyven tiptoed cautiously into the  hall and peered over the banisters. It  was indeed a strange group that stood  in the hall below���������Mrs. Briggs, the  housekeeper, with the much swathed  foundling in her arms; Edith, tall and  stately,.standing near by, her arms and  neck showing like Ivory against the  dark tapestry on the wall; the bishop  peering into the depths of the old shawl  that wrapped the child; two maids  craning over his shoulder and the statuesque Higgins explaining to such as  cared to listen how he had come to find  the bundle when be had answered the  bell.  "And what'll we do with it?" asked  Mrs. Briggs when Higgins' tale of woe  bad come to an end.  "Do?" said Edith. "Why, we'll take  it-to-the-homerof-courser"  QUEBEC'S LAST SEIGNEUR,  Charles A. M. Globensky, Seignsur at  Mille Isles, Pr.eses to His Rest at  ��������� Home  In St. Enstache.  Charles A. M. Globensky, Seigneur  of Mille Isles, who died at his home  In St. Eustache very recently, is said  to have been the last of the old squirearchy of Quebec. It is more than 50  years since the privileged class to which  he belonged lost the place it had held  for upwards of two centuries in the social order of French Canada. Of the  seigneurs Of 1S54, when the act was  passed that extinguished the peculiar  rights of the lord of the manor, none  are now alive, M. Globensky having  survived all the others. There are still,  however, selgneui-3 and seigniories in  Quebec/but they are not what they  were. With the title goes none of the  power, and from the tenants can be  exacted none of the dues that pertained  to the old estate of the seigneur.  ,.  Landlordism.  In 1854 the Legislature of the Province of Canada passed the law which  abolished seigniorial tenure. The system had long been recognized as an  Incubus upon the progress of Quebec.  Parceled out into siegniories, each of  many square leagues in extent, the land  was under the oon'trol of a few territorial magnates. This was a hindrance  to settlement. To obtain a farm an  Immigrant had to become a holder under some seigneur.    The  latter  oi tn* several sections ci lermory e-n-  trusted to them.   They were to afford  the encouragement and the direction  for which   the   French   peasantry   at  home had been accustomed to look to  a superior class.     But  the seigneurs  proved valueless as aids to colonizing  enterprise and  were  a   positive   hindrance to it   For the most part they  soon ceased to be people of consideration in the eyes of their tenants, who  were usually too  few to make up a j  rent revenue sufficient to maintain the |  seigneur In magnificence.   His poverty !  was fatal to his dignity.   A blight on |  the country  was   removed   when   hU ;  ���������rule waa ended.  SAVED THE LANDS.  HOME ANNIVERSARIES,  "My dear," the bishop remonstrated  mildly, "why not keep it here with us?  To take it to the home seems to me to  be very "nruch-like casting It into outer  darkness. Of course we can't look after  all the waifs, but suppose we take this  one, who has been left at our very door,  and give it a chance in the world."  Edith laughed unsympathetlcally.  "Why, father, dear, what a silly idea,"  she began. "Of course we can't keep  It."  '"Inasmuch as ye-have done it unto  one of the least of these,'" quoted the  bishop.  "A very pretty sentiment," said the  girl, "but most unpractical. You  haven't the, least idea what instincts  this child may have. You would probably give it ovory advantage In the  world only to have }t disappoint you at  every turn. It would probably grow up  a most ungrateful little wretch. They  always do."  Van Ruyven tiptoed back Into the  study and snt down before the fire. lie  heard the group below go Into tho reception room, and their voices enmo up  to him Inarticulately. For a time ho  sat thero, smoking In" a preoccupied  manner. Then ho hoard Edith's voice  In the hall below giving orders to tho  servants.  "Higgins, telephone for tho carriage,  and Mrs. Briggs got on your things,  please, and bo ready when It comes,  We'll take tho child to tho home. I'll  go with you. I can't conceive why  father had such absurd notions about  keeping It hero."  A llttlo later the front door slammed,  thoro was n rumblo of onrrlago wheels  without, and then Van Ruyven hoard  tho bishop's steps slowly ascending tho  stairs, Ho camo Into tho study and  stood for awhllo looking silently into  tbo flro.  "Did you bonr It?" bo asked at  length, turning nbruptly to Van Ruyven. Tbo younger mnn nodded, Tho  bishop enuk rather heavily. Into bis  chair. '  "Sbo's not minol I was mistaken!"  ho burst out. "Sbe is no daughter of  mine, after all!"  Van Ruyvoo rose. "I think I'd best  go now," ho said simply. "Please don't  tell Edltb tliat I have beeu bore nor  why T rnn-io"  Th������ bishop looked nt him narrowly.  "It will be bard for her," bo said, "but  I think you aro justified."  Suddenly the bishop's head drooped.  There was a stifled sound very llko a  Rob.  "Sho said it would grow up nn un-  grateful little wretch, mid sho was  right, Arthur; alio was right."

When a settler  took land In a seigrniory he became subject to the charges that law and custom had established.   The rent charge  known as "cens et rentes," was usually two sous per arpei-t.    To this the  tenants had little objection.    As long  as they paid it they were left in undisturbed possession, and could    pass  their holdings on to their heirs, who,  in  turn, became subject to  the  rent  charge.    Also a tenant could sell out  his holding, the purchaser taking his  place as the "censltaire," or rent-payer.  But transfers of the latter kind were  subject to another charge, that known  as "lods et ventes,"  which   was   one-  twelfth of the purchase money.    This  fraction of the price had to be paid to  the seigneur whenever a holding on  his estate was sold out by a tenant.  The Mi,!I.  To reduce the burden of this tax on  transfers, tenants and purchasers   of  tenant right sometimes   conspired   to  understate the price, > But   the  seig-  "nluTs earIy~becahW^mp^wTrTd~t^fSKe'  over any holding 40 days after it had  been sold, on the payment to the tenant of the price he professed to 'be receiving from the purchaser. This power proved an effectual check on fraudulent representations of the price.    As !  tenants strenuously objected to giving  up one-twelfth of the value of theirV  improvements, the desire to be a ten-'  ant did not grow stronger as time pass-;  ed.   Another grievance which hindered  immigration to the seigniories of Quebec was the seigneur's right to a toll  for grinding the grain.   All the wheat  and other cereals turned Into flour and  meal had to be ground at tho mill of  the seigneur, who took as his pay one-,  fourteenth of the grist,   As the opportunities for oppression Increased, some !  of tho seigneurs were quick to  turn '  them to account.   Rents would be increased,   timber   reserved,   the   river  shore would be withhold, a portion of  every catch of fish would bo exacted,  and so on, j  Towns and Villages.  Not only the habitants, who tilled  the farms of the seigniories, but the  people who formed tho villages and  the towns that sprang up within the  seigniory woro at the mercy of thu  lord, The country was kept back.  Tho first attempt that was made under  British rule to get rid of the stagnating seigniorial system was In 1700, The  Council appointed a committee to look  into tho system, and tho committee's  report was most unfavorable. Sottlo*  mont, It showed, was not expanding,  only tho part of each seigniory bordering tho 'river being people. Improvement, tho committer- declared, was  Impossible with u change in tenure*,  and It recommended tho British  Bystem of free nnd common bo-  oage.

But, whllo releasing tho land  from tho burdens of tho system, It  was fair to tho nolgneurs. These had  rights, which a tribunal, made up of  the judges of tho Court of Appeal and  the Supromo Court, was constituted to  ascertain, This Judicial board carefully separated the pretensions <of the  seigneurs from thoir genuine rights,  and enumerated the latter In tho report to the Government. To Indemnify  tho seigneurs for tho loss of those  rights, and to mako other adjustments  deemed necessary by tho change, the  Government expended $10,000,000.

Sow De Coamas- Great Speech Happened to ne Delivered.  The longest speech on record is believed to have been tbat made by Mr.  de Cosmus in the legislature of British  Columbia when a measure was pending the passage of which would have  taken from a great many settlers their  lands. De Cosmus was iu a minority.  The measure had been held back till  tbe eve of the close of the season or  session. Unless action was taken before noon of a given day the act wou'.iJ  fail. De Cosmu3 got the floor at 10  a. ra. and began a speech against the*  bill. Its friends supposed he would b*-,*  done by, 1 o'clock. At 2 o'clock he waa  Gaying, "In tbe second place."
