Last Sunday   evening the dis  covery   was made   that the bush  fire which had been burning along  No. 5 track, ami which had seemed  to be all hut extinct, had taken a  new lease of life with a sharp North  1 wind blowing add had run up so  clone to the Isolation Hospital that  that  building  was in  imminent  danger  of   destruction.     Indeed  when the first few men arrived on  ilia scene it was a question if the  place could be saved.     However  after tearing nwiiy the surrounding  brush and dead limbs the danger  was averted and later, the hose being laid from the gaol hjdrimt, the  whole face of the fire was 0becked,  Had it been allowed to burn uninterruptedly    tho   Hospital    and  houses in that locality would have  been endangered.

A Severe   Snffarer    Tells   How   He  Overcame the Trouble.  "Not only do I not hesitate to declare the benefit I have received from  Dr. Williams' Pink Tills, but I feel it  my duty to do so." These are the  words which Mr. Edward Lavoio, of  St. Jerome, Que., lately addressed to  the editor of L'Avenir du Nord, when  relating the story of his cure. Mr.  Lavoie is well known in St. Jerome,  and what he says carries weight  among those who know" him. For a  considerable time he was a great  sufferer from dyspepsia, which caused  severe headaches, pains 'in the stomach and sometimes nausea. Sometimes he felt as though he would suffocate, he would become dizzy, and  experienced ringing noises in the ears.  His appetite became poor, and hia  general health so bad that he found  it almost impossible to work, and  when the headaches attacked him he  'had to quit work. For six months,  j he says, he suffered both physically  ! and mentally more than can be im-  ' agined. During this time he took  medicine from several doctors, but  found ho help. Then one day he read  of the cure of a similar case through  the use of Dr. Williams' Fink Pills,  and decided to try them. He used  the pills for a couple of months, and  they have made him feel like a new  person. He is no longer troubled  ���������with any of the old symptoms," and  says he can now go about his work  as though he never had dyspepsia.  V The digestive: organs���������like"1 all the  other organs of the body���������get their  strength and nourishment from the  blood. Dr.���������������������������Williams'' Pink Pills actually make new blood. This new  blood strengthens the stomach,  stimulates the liver1, regulates the  bowels and sots the whole digestive  system in a healthy, vigorous state,  Good blood is the true secret of good  health. That is why Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills always bring trood. health  to thoso who use them.

Pale yellow Is very becoming to her; so also are brown, black  and a certain shade of green. White  is her best color. Turquoise blue looks  particularly well on a dark haired  woman, and so do the shades of old  rose and deeper pink. The pale pinks  belong to blonds. Deep mauv'es and  purples are becoming to both blonds  and brunettes, and this is true also of  certain shades of scarlet.  The fashionable decolletage line is  somewhat higher this season, for, al-  iNATURE'S   CURE  CHILDREN.  FOR  Soothing medicines, opiates and  strong drugs should never bo given to  little children, any doctor will tell  you this. Baby's Own Tablets should  be used because they cannot harm  the smallest, weakost infant. Ttiese  tablets instantly relieve and promptly cure all stomach and bowel troubles, break up colds, prevent croup,  destroy worms, and allay the irritation accompanying the cutting of  teeth. Thousands of mothers say  they are the best medicine in tha  world; one of these, Mrs. R. Scul-  land, Calabogie, Out., writes: "I  have tried many remedies for children, but Baby's Own Tablets is tha  best I have ever used. I have been  giving them occasionally to my child  I since he was six months old. Thuy  1 have always kept him well, and he is  !a big healthy baby."

"I can't exactly explain how I feel  about it," he said one day as they sat  together in an art gallery, where his  worshiping eyes returned ever and  again to a pictured face of rare beauty  that looked down upon them from the  warm red Walls. "It isn't that I think  they are the most fascinating. Wit  and beauty are not too fond of each  other's company. Besides, the most  attractive woman I've over known was  ugly���������so ugly ..that at first she made  you gasp. After that���������well, she was  your criterion of charm. When you  left her things became stale and lifeless. All the color and sympathy went  from the scene. You simply hungered  for her."       ���������'..'���������  He paused and turned toward his  companion with a waiting, expectant  look, as if he Avantedto'be sure that  Bhe understood, and she answered the  unspoken question of his glance with  a slow smile that did not betray, by so  much as a< flicker, the warm, reproachful, woman wrath in her heart.  She had heard practically the, same  thing from him before, but today for  the first., time her patience gave way  utterly. Apparently all sense of her  womanhood had been sunk in their  comradeship. Instead of rejoicing in  this state of ..affairs, a feeling of injury,  outrage, suddenly flared up in her  heart.    ���������  Did. he-think that because her features were irregular and her .complexion dull she was n girl who did not  need to be reckoned with? Did he  suppose she was the less a woman because she was plain? Had he no idea  of the sting in the remarks be was for- j  ,_eicj*j^l*jng^Jbjna^  >:  fc  r  >  These were the questions she asked  herself hotly, but her voice���������that low,  vibrant voice that thrilled ono with  its rich difference from other voices-  betrayed in its full evenness no trace  of the resentment that surged within  ber.  "You are right," she agreed, with impersonal candor. "All women should  be beautiful"���������there was a slight pause,  a hesitation just marked enough to give  force to tho conclusion of her sentence���������  "just as all men should be big and  strong!"  Dunham glanced at her quickly. For  one startled moment he half thought���������  But, no; Barbara was too good a fellow  to give a man a flock on the raw like  that.   It was a mere coincidence.  Dunham was but five foot six, and,  though he was well knit and substantial, with a clean bred look that was in  itself a recommendation, he was a  trifle sensitive on the score of the six  cddltlona. Inches of height that bo  felt should nave been his,  "A mail's appearance Isn't of much  consequence," lie observed, somewhat  stiffly. "His field is action. It is what  be ia rather than how bo looks."  Thero was moro heat In hia tone  than ho liked, but ho'wasn't able to  suppress it. Somehow ho didn't enjoy  being nindo to fool that ho was not  at all llkcf her ideal man, even though "j  they were nothing but friends,  "Perhaps you are right," was tho  mild reply, and the conversation drifted to othor-and safer subjects. But  there was a speculative look in Bar-  bum's oyos for the rest of tho afternoon, which wouf havo told a careful  observer that she wan turnlug somo  plan ovor In hor mind.  Her usual hour of rest boforo dinner  the spent lying at full length on the  divan In her room, with, hor hands  clasped under hor ho/id and hor eyes  Uxt'd on tho open lire, thinking,  80 Baird could novor lovo any ono  but a boaulyl She carefully refrained  from asking herself why this should  pique hor particularly, slnco her plainness had novor interfered with thoir  friendship, and he spent far more tltno  with her than with any of tho pretty  girls of their set.  Still ���������  "Well, I don't cure," sho said aloud  ������������������, glancing at the clock, she arose and j  bru'im tfl roll  tin tht������ -n*iswr������* of her I  dark hair, sticking tho great shell pins  In here nnd there with reckless Indifference,   ���������'I'm tired of hearing lilm  talk that way,   Ho deserves to bo punished.    Beauty may bo tho greatest  ttiln- but tt l������sn't '���������renter than nil other i  tilings, put together.  "A few weeks of Amy will be good  for him," she wililnqtilzcd as sho went  on with her dm-wi-ig, Then, when she  wns ready for dinner, sho sat down nt  ber do*k and wroto a letter to a former  Schoolmate-the beauty of her cliisa-  ttrultig her to nut'.to her a long promised  Til"it.  In the course of 0 week or two the  invitation had bct'it urn-punl. juttl All!**  Avcrlll arrived. That she was a beauty  was a fact as self evident as that the  sky is blue (when it is so). It was a  fact that, admitted of no difference 0*  opinion.  Her .skin was like a La Prance rose,  her eyes deeply blue and her hair suggested mingled gold and copper. The  curves of her gracious figure swirled  and flowed in lines so graceful, so alluring that even the most sluggish beholder was kindled into admiration.  "She's a beauty, all right," ��������� Barbara  decided as she kissed her in greeting  and conducted her to her roouv and,  -bough she keDt ud her nart of their  animated talk about old times and old  friends, her eyes feasted themselves  upon Amy's loveliness. The hitter's  most ordinary movement was endowed  with a grace that made Barbara half  believe that beauty was the only thing  after all. When other girls lifted their  hands and removed their hatpins it  was an action scarce worthy of notice,  but when Amy's arms went up with a  languid grace and her rather large but  beautifully molded hands, with their  long, tapering lingers, drew forth a  glittering pin and removed her hat,,'  Barbara felt vaguely that she was witnessing a rite���������that she was seeing a  poem , ,'|  But after a few days of her companionship the glamour was always be-  dimmed. The eyes were feasted, to be  sure, but the mind and heart were ���������  starved. One wearied of her roselike,'  fluttering color and the amiable but  unmeaning smile and even of the very  perfect rows of teeth that the smile  exposed, ,  "I am going to have a friend with me  for a month," Barbara had told Baird "  Dunham in preparation; "a girl that I  particularly want you' to meet. She's a  raving beauty arid as sweet as she can  be." ;,'.  If she had spoken all of her thoughts  perhaps she might have added, "So  sweet that at,the end of a month you  will want to kill her or do something  desperate and outrageous." But, with  a commendable self restraint, she banished this unruly idea to the dark  chamber of unspoken thoughts.  In the weeks that followed she effaced herself, pushing Amy into Dunham's society in every possible way,  but doiu<r it so gradually and skillfully  that he scarcely realized how little he  was seeing of his friend and comrade.  If she saw less of him, however, she  saw more of Jack Lester, whose companionship was a grateful balm, be-  ���������"Cause-he-was-not-forover-ta-lking-a bout-  beauty, however much he may have  admired it.  At first Baird haunted the house like  a spirit, while his plans for Miss Averill's entertainment fairly tumbled over  each other in their eagerness. These  plans, of course, always included Barbara, but with a masterly skill'she  withdrew from them more and''more'  until almost before Baird realized what,  bad happened he noticed that he and  Miss Averill were usually alone. With  Miss Averill's exquisite profile beside  him, however, he was not in a mood to  complain. ,  Then, about the middle of the fourth  week, ills soaring spirit suddenly touched earth. Ho was guilty of a brutal,  heretical thought. Right in the middle  of a long afternoon that they were to  spend together he was seized by a great  weariness. For the life of 1dm he  could think of nothing to say. He was  bored!  He stared at tho beautiful Miss Avcrlll with a .sort of stupefied woudor.  It seemed incredible that the society of  so exquisite a creature could bo so uncommonly like muggy weather. It  seemed an age since he had had a good,  bracing talk with Barbara. Now that  ho thought of ltt Barbara must be seeing a good deal of that Lester chap.  Vaguely, as If he had happened upon  thorn In a dream-, ho recalled having  met thorn together several times lately.  "I don't believe you are thinking of  mo nt nil!" pouted Miss Avet'lll. "I've  spoken to you twice, and you haven't  oven heard mo.   It isn't nice of yon,"  "Eh���������what?" exclaimed Dunham, trying to call his roving thoughts together  and insisting upon hearing tho remark  he had Inadvertently missed,  "I asked if you don't think the Waldorf Is lovely? I think it's just sweet."  "Yes," assented ho recklessly. "That  expresses it sweetly. It's just sweet."  And ho cast about In his mind'for  somo excuse by which tho hours that  stretched before thoin might bo shortened. Ho folt precisely as ho had onco  in his childhood, whon ho had surreptitiously bought and enton six char-  lotto rushes.  Miss Avorlil confided to Barbara that  night that sho didn't llko Mr, Dunham  so well us sho thought slut did,  "He's so dull! Don't you think so?"  ������-ho domnndert.  "Thero have boon times when he  seemed so," Barbara confessed airily.  Then she wondered If Balvd's ears  woro attaint-. Threo days later tho  radiant Miss Averill's visit came to an  cod S'nrm nftorwnrd ImnlvMn fli*i*e������t������-tl  in to seo Barbara, quite In his old manner.  "All, this Is good!" h������ said gloatingly-ns ho sank into the depths of his  favorite chair. ''There's so much talk  to make up," ho went on in genial en-  Joyjijojil, "that I scarcely know where  to begin."  Barbara turned her bead to one side  and stirvoyod him with half cloned  eyes.  "We might begin with feminine beau  ty,'1 she suggested helpfully. "There's  so much to *be said about it."  A pause followed iu which several  new ideas entered Dunham's mind.  Then he demanded, not without a conscious sense of, guilt:  "Just what do you mean?"  He leaned forward and studied her  face, and though she flushed under his  keen scrutiny her eyes looked back at  him���������proud, unwavering and a bit defiant. '>��������� '���������;.  "I certainly admire beauty," be began softly. "But I take back what I  have said about falling in love with  ono. You see, little girl, I'm so used  to you that the beauties bore me."

MSjg-SUJSJBJjj THE COURIER  OF THE CZAR  r.;C.-."J  ���������':?\--*L  k.y.sV.l  CHAPTER III.  * HE distance between Mos-  Icow aud Irkutsk, about  I to be traversed by Ml-  ��������� chnel Strogoff, was 5.'-'Q0  versts. Before tlie tele-  graph wire extended from  the Ural mountains to  the eastern frontier of Siberia the dispatch service was performed , by couriers, those who traveled ihe most rap-  Idly hiking .eighteen days to get from,  Moscow to Irkutsk.  Iu the first place, however, he must  not travel as a courier of the czar usually would. No one must even suspect  what he really was. Spies swarm in a  rebellious country. Let him be recognized, and his mission would be In'danger. Also, while supplying him with a  large sum of money, which was sufficient for his journey and would facilitate it in some measure, General Kis-  soff had not given him any document  specifying that he was in the emperor's  servlcfe, which is the sesame [jar excellence. He contented himself with  furnishing him with a podorojna.  The podorojna was made out in the  name of Nicholas Kerpa*off, merchant,  living at Irkutsk. It authorized Nicholas Korpanoff to be accompanied, if  requisite, by one or more persons, and,  moreover, it was by special notification  made available in the event of the Muscovite government forbidding natives  of any other countries to leave Russia.  The podorojna is simply a permission  to take post horses, but Michael Strogoff .was' not to use it unless he was  sure that by so doing he would not excite suspicion as to his mission���������that is  to say, while he was on European territory. The consequence was that in  Siberia, while traversing the insurgent  -proY-ineeSf���������he���������would-i-ho-ve���������no���������paw-cc  over the relays either in the choice of  horses in preference to others or in demanding conveyances for his personal  use. Neither was Michael Strogoff to  forget that he was no longer a courier,  but a plain merchant, Nicholas Korpanoff, traveling from Moscow to Irkutsk,  nnd as such exposed to all the Impediments of,an ordinary journey..  To pass unknown more or less rapidly, but to pass somehow or other���������such  were the directions he bad received.  Thirty years previously the escort of  a traveler of rank consisted of not less  than 200 mounted Cossacks, 200 foot  soldiers, 25 Baskir horsemen, 300 camels, 400 horses, 25 wagons, 2 portable  boats and 2 pieces of cannon. All this  was requisite for a. journey In Siberia.  Michael Strogoff, however, had neither cannon nor horsemen nor foot soldiers nor beasts of burden. He would  travel In a carriage or on horseback  when be could, on foot when he could  not.  There would be no difficulty In getting over the first 1,500 versts, the distance between Moscow and the Russian frontier, Railroads, post carriages,  steamboats, relays of horses, were at  every one's disposal and consequently  at the disposal of the courier of the  czar.  Accordingly on tbe morning of the  10th of July, having doffed bis uniform,  with a knapsack on his back, dressed  In tho simple Russian costume, tightly  fitting tunic, tho traditional bolt of the  moujlk, wide trousers, gartered at the  knees, ond high boots, Mlclmel Strogoff arrived at the station In time for  the first train. He carried no arms,  openly at loam, but under Ills bolt was  bidden a revolver and In Ills pocket  ono of those largo knives wltli which a  Siberian hunter can so neatly disembowel a bear without injuring its precious fur,  A crowd of travelers had collected at  tho Moscow station. The stations oo  the Husslnn railroads are nine)) used as  places for meeting not only by thoso  who nro about to proceed by tlie train,  but by friends who oonio to see thorn  oil, It indued resembles from the variety of characters asHcmblwl a small  news exchange.

The occupants of the carriage, whom  chance had made his traveling companions, discussed the subject, though with  that caution which has become habitual among Russians, who know that  spies are ever on the watch for any  treasonable expressions which may be  uttered.  At the VTIadimlr station fresh travelers entered the train. Among others,  a young girl presented herself at the  door of the carriage occupied by Michael Strogoff.  A vacant place was found opposite  the courier of the czar. The young girl  took it after placing by her side a,modest traveling bag of red leather which  seemed to constitute ber luggage. Then,  seating herself with downcast eyes, she  prepared for a journey which was still  to last several hours.  Michael Strogoff could not help looking attentively at his newly arrived fellow traveler. As she was so placed as  to travel with her back to the engine,  he even offered her his seat, which she  might prefer to'her own, but she thanked him with a slight bend of her graceful neck.  Tbe young girl appeared to be about  sixteen or seventeen rears of age. Her  head, truly charming, -was of the purest  Slavonic type ���������slightly severe, and  which would when a few summers had  passed over her unfold into beauty  rather than mere prettiness. Front beneath a sort of kerchief which she wore  on her head escaped in profusion light  golden hair. Her eyes were brown,  soft and expressive of much sweetness  of temper. The nose was straight and  attached to her pale and somewhat thin  cheeks by delicate mobile nostrils. The  lips were finely cut. but if seemed as, if  they had long since forgotten how to  "stntier���������"*���������*~"-*"���������r--���������-���������   ���������:. -���������-r  "; ���������.  ;  The young traveler was tall and upright, as well as could be judged of her  figure from the very simple and ample  pelisse that covered ber. Although she  was still a very young girl in the literal  sense of the term, the development of  her high forehead and clearly cut features gave the idea that she was the  possessor of a great moral energy, a  point which did not. escape Michael  Strogoff. Evidently this young girl had  already suffered In the past, and the  future doubtless did not present itself  to her in glowing colors. But It was  none the less certain that she had  known how to struggle and that she  hnd resolved to struggle still with the  trials of life. Hor energy was evidently prompt and persistent and her calmness unalterable even under circumstances In which a man would be likely  to give way or lose bis self command.  Such was the Impression which she  produced nt first sight. Michael Stro-  Koff, being himself of nn energetic temperament, was naturally struck by the  character of her physloguomy, and,  while taking care not to cause her annoyance by a too persistent gaze, he  observed bis neighbor with no small Interest. The costume of the young traveler wns both extremely simple and  appropriate. She was not rich���������that  could easily bo seen���������but not the slightest mark of negligence was to bo discerned In her dress. All her luggage  wns contained in a leather bag under  lock and key, and which, for want of  room, she held ou her Inp.  She wore a long, dark pelisse, wbleb  wns gracefully adjusted ut tho neck by  a blue tie. Under this pelisse a short  skirt, also dark, foil ovor a robe which  reached to her ankles and of which tbe  lower edge was ornamented witb somo  ������luwl������ embroidery. Half boot! of worked leather nnd thickly aoled, as if chosen lu the anticipation of a long Journey, covered her small feet  Michael Strogoff fancied thnt he recognized by certain details the fnsbion  of tlie costumo of Livonia, nnd he  thought that his neighbor must be a  native of the Baltic provinces.  But whlthor wiih this young girl going nlono nt an age when the fostering  care of a father or the protection of a  brother Is considered a matter of necessity? Had she now come after nn  iim-uuy iuiitf jourm.-,*, iuiui the pio*,-  l������v.v.*i vf tvi;Uni P.:.via? \Xan *.!.<���������  merely going to Nljnl Novgorod, or was  (he end of her travels beyond tho punt-  cm frontier of the empire? Would  some relation, some friend, nwttlt her  arrival by ihu uuiu, o. ���������.ib it um  more probable, on tho contrary, that  sho would Iind herself aa much Isolated  in the town as sho was In this compartment, where uo one, sho must  think, appeared to caro for her? It  ���������<.������������������'. ��������� probable.  Michael Btrogoff observed her with  ii.u.'kut, but, hiuj.-it'lf r<" I'rv-'d, he  sought no opportunity of accosting lier,  ������������������illhough several hours must elapse be-  t'ovc the arrival of the train at Nljnl  Novgorod.  At last the train, at half past 8 iu xpe  ���������evening, arrived at the station of Nijni  Novgorod. ,       ,  Before any one eoiild get out of the  carnages the inspectors of police presented themselves at the doors and examined the passengers.   "   ���������  Michael Strogoff showed his podorojua made out in the name of Nicholas  Korpanoff. He had consequently no  difficulty.  As to the other travelers In the compartment, all bound for Nijni Novgorod, their appearance, happily for them,  was in nowise suspicious.  The young girl iu her turn'exhibited  not a passport, since passports are no  longer required In Russia, but a permit  Indorsed with a private seal and which  seemed to be of a special character.  The Inspector .read the permit with attention. Then, having attentively examined the person whose description It  contained, he said:  "You are from Riga?"  ���������'Yes,'* replied the young girl.  "You are going to Irkutsk?"      $"' i  "Yes."   ���������, ' " "    .-  i .  ,  "By what route?'*  "By Perm."  "Good!" replied the Inspector. "Take  care to have your permit vised at the  police station of Nijni Novgorod.'" The  young girl bent her head iu token of  assent. .  Hearing the questions and replies,  Michael Strogoff experienced a mingled sentiment both of surprise and  pity. What, .this young 'girl alone journeying to that faroff Siberia and at a  time when to its ordinary dangers were  added all the perils of an invaded country and one In."a state of insurrection'?-.  How would she reach it? What would  become of her? -  The Inspection ended, the doors of  the carriages m re opened, but before  Michael StrogoK could move toward  her the young Livonian. who had been  the'"first to descend, had disappeared in  the :crowd which thronged the platforms of the railway station.  Nijni Novgorod. Lower Novgorod, situated at the junction of the Volga and  the Oka, is the chief town in the district of the same name. Itv was here  that Michael Strogoff was obliged to  leave the railway, which at the time  did not go beyond this town. Thus as  he advanced ,his traveling would become'first less speedy and' then less  safe. ������ ���������  Nijni Novgorod, the fixed population  .af-w.hlcb~is������ont-v^4-oiu-Hi!t()(.)()^n--a5^ooi  inhabitants, contained at that time  more, than 300,000���������that is to say, the  population was increased tenfold. This  addition was in consequence of the celebrated -fair,'which' was held within  the walls for three weeks.p Formerly  Makariew had the benefit of this concourse of traders, but since 1817 the  fair had been removed to Nijni Novgorod.  The town, dreary enough nt most  times, then presented a truly animated  scene. Six different races of merchants,  European and Asiatic, were fraternizing under the congenial influence of  trade.  Michael Strogoff strolled through the  town quietly, looking out for some inn,  Ho was looking for supper rather than  a bed, but he found both at the sign  of the City of Constantinople.  His supper finished, Michael Strogoff  instead .of going up to his bedroom  again strolled out Into the town.  Why did not, Michael Strogoff go  quietly to bed, as would have seemed  moro seasonable after a long railway  Journey? Was ho thinking of the  young Livonian girl who had for so  many hours been his traveling companion? Having nothing better to do, ho  was thinking of hor,  "Alone," he said to himself; "alone in  tho midst of these wandering tribes!  And yet the present dangers are nothing to those sbo must undergo. Siberia! Irkutsk! I am about to dare all  risks for Russia, for the czar, while  sho Is about to do so for whom? For  what? Sho Is authorized to cross tho  frontier! And tlio country beyond Is  in revolt! Tbo steppes beyond are full  of Tartar bonds!"  Mlclmel Strogoff stopped for on Instant and reflected.  "Without doubt," thought bo, "she  must havo determined on undertaking  hor Journey before tho Invasion. Perhaps sho Is ovou now Ignorant of what  Is happening. But, no; thnt cannot be,  for iho merchants discussed before her  the dlsturbnm-os In Siberia, and Blie  fid not soctn even surprised. She did  not oven niik for nn explanation. Kho  iii-u't havo known It then, and, though  Knowing.It, she Is still resolute. Poor  girl! Her motive fur tho journey in tint  bo urgent indeed! But, though sho may  bo brave���������aud sho certainly Is bo���������lie,*  p-v-Min-th mn������"t fall hep nnd, to niiv  nothing of dangers nnd obstacles, sImi  will bo unablo to enduro tho fatigue of  such a Journoy, Novor can she push  Irkutsk l"  Indulging In such reflections, Mlclmel  eifvu-'oT -vnndnri'i! nn it* cbnueo led  him; but, bolug well acquainted with  the town, ho knew that ho could without difficulty retrace his steps.  Having strolled on for about nn hour,  lie seated himself on a bench against  tlio wall of a largo wooden cottngo  which Mood, with others, on a vast  open space.  Me had ncaroely been there Ave minutes when a band was laid hciivlly on  hM shoulder,  "What are you doing here?" roughly  demanded * large ond powerful man  who had approach'ed unperceived.  "I am resting," replied Michael Strogoff. ���������-.":.  "Do you mean to stay all night on the  bench?" asked the man.  "Yes, if T feel inclined to do so," answered Michael Strogoff in a tone somewhat too sharp for the simple merchant  be wished to personate.  "Come forward, then, that I may see  you," said the man.  "It Is not necessary," he replied, and  he calmly stepped back ten paces or so.;  The man seemed, as Michael observed him well, to have the look of a Bohemian, such as are met at fairs and  with whom contact, either physical or  moral, Is unpleasant. Then, as he looked more attentively through the dusk  which was coming on, he perceived  near the cottage a large caravan, the  usual traveling dwelling of the gypsies  who Bwarm In Russia wherever a few  copecks can be obtained.  As the gypsy took two or three steps  forward and was about to Interrogate  Michael Strogoff more closely the door  of the cottage was opened. He could  just see a woman, who advanced quickly and in a language which Michael  Strogoff knew to be a mixture of the  Mongol and Siberian she said: "Another spy! Let him alone and come to  supper.   It Is waiting for you."  Michael Strogoff could not help smiling at the epithet bestowed on him,  dreading spies as he did above all  things.  , But in the same dialect,: although his  accent was very different, the Bohemian replied in words which signify:  "You are right, Sangarre. Besides,  wo start tomorrow."  "Tomorrow!" repeated the woman In  surprise.  "Yes, Sangarre," replied the Bohemian, "tomorrow, and the Father himself sends us���������where we are going."  Thereupon the man and woman entered the cottage and carefully closed  the door. ������  "Good!" said Michael Strogoff to himself. "If these gypsies do not wish to  be understood when they speak before  me, they had better usesome other language." - ,   ;,  From his Siberian origin and because  he had passed his childhood in the  steppes Michael Strogoff, it has been  said, understood almost all .the Ian-,  guages ih usage from Tartary to the  Sea of Ice. As to the. exact signification of the words exchanged between  the'gypsy and bis companion he did  not troubi^hiy"h~ead7~Tor"why shWla"  It interest him? ������  An hour after Michael Strogoff was  sleeping soundly on one of those Russian beds which always seem so hard  to strangers, and on tbe morrow-, the  17th of July, he awoke at break-of day.  He had still five hours to pass at  Nijni Novgorod. It seemed to him an  age. How was he to spend the morning unless In wandering, as be had  done the evening before, through the  streets? By the time he Iind finished  his breakfast, strapped up Ills i>ag, had  bis pndoroinn Inspected at the police  office, he would have nothing to do but  start. But he was .not .a man to lie In bed  after the sun had risen, so he rose, dressed himself and placed the letter with  the Imperial arms on it carefully nt. the  bottom of Its usual pocket within the  lining of his coat, over w lilch be faste:.-  ed bis belt. He then closed his bag and  threw It over his shoulder.  This done, ho had no wish to return  to tho Clty'of Constantinople, and, Intending to breakfast on the bank of the  Volga near tho wharf, ho settled his  bill and left tho inu. By tho way of  precaution Michael Strogoff went first  to the office of tlie stenm packet company nnd there made stiro that tho  Caucasus would start nt the appointed  hour. As ho did so the thought for tho  first tlmo struck him that since tho  young Livonian plrl wns going to Perm  It was vory possible that her Intention,  was also to embark In tho Caucasus, In  which case he should accompany her.  Michael Strogoff found himself lu the  central square when the report spread  that the bend of police hud been summoned by a courier to the palace of tho  ifovornor general. An Important dispatch from Moscow, it was said, was  the cntiso of It.  "The fair Is lo bo closed," said ono.  "Tho regiment of Nljnl Novgorod has  received tho route," declared another,  "Thoy say that tho Tartars menace  Tomsk!"  "Hero Is tho head of pollco!" was  shouted on every side, A loud clapping  of hands was suddenly raised, which  subsided by degrees and finally was  succeeded by absolute silence, Tho  bend of police arrived In the middle of  the central sqium*, and II \\jii\Keeu by  all that ho held In his hand i'l dispatch.  Then in a loud volco lie read tho following ���������imioijii'.Tiiiciii',;  "l������> order ut' the buuutur of Nijiil  Novgorod:  "All Russian fubjecta are forbidden  to quit the province upon any pretext  whatsoever.  "All hiriingers oi Annuo origin aro  commanded to leave tho province within twouly-four hours."  proclamation expelling all foreigners ol  Asiatic origin and the words exchanged  last evening between those two gypsies of the Ziugari race! 'The Father  himself sends us where w*e wish to go,'  that old man said. But 'the Father' is  the emperor. He is never called anything else among the, people. How  could those gypsies have foreseen the  measure taken against them? How  could they have known it beforehand,  and where do they wish to go? Those  are suspicious people, and it seems tome that to them the goverumeut proclamation must be more useful than Injurious.'*  But these reflections, though certainly correct, were completely dispelled by  another, which drove every other  thought out of Michael's mind. He forgot the ZIngarls, their suspicious words,  the strange coincidence which resulted  from the proclamation. The remembrance of the young Livonian girl suddenly rushed Into his mind.  "Poor child!" he thought to himself.  "She cannot now cross the frontier."  In truth the young girl was from  Riga. She was Livonian, consequently Russian, and now could not leave  Russian territory. The permit which  had been given her before- the new  measures had been promulgated was  evidently no longer available. All  routes to Siberia had just been pitilessly closed to her, and whatever was the  motive which was taking her to Irkutsk, she was now forbidden to go  there.  This thought greatly occupied Michael  Strogoff.    Pie said to himself,  vaguely at first, that without neglecting anything of what was due to his  important  mission  it would  perhaps  be possible for him to be of some use  to this brave girl, and this  lea pleased  him.    Knowing how serious were the  dangers which  he, an energetic and  vigorous man, would have personally  to  encounter  through   a  country  of  which,  however, the roads  were familiar, he could not conceal from himself how Infinitely greater they would  prove to a young, unprotected girl.   As  I she was.. going-, to Irkutsk, she would  ' be obliged to follow the same road aa  himself;   she   would   have   to   pass  through the bands of invaders, as he  j was about to attempt doing, himself.  If, moreover, and according to all probability, she had at her disposal oDly  ' the resources oecessary for a journey-  taken  under ordinary  circumstances,  ���������Uiow^eo_uid_sJhajuanagk_toiacco mp 11 sh it  , under   conditions   which   late  events  1 would render not only perilous, but expensive?  I   "Well," said he,  "if she takes the  route to Perm It Is nearly impossible  but that I shall fall in .with her.   Then  I will watch over her without her suspecting it, and as she appears to be aa  , anxious as myself to reach Irkutsk she  will cause me no delay."  But one thought leads to another.  Michael Strogoff had till now reasoned  on the supposition of doing a kind action, of rendering a service,'but now  another idea flashed into his brain, and  the question presented itself uuder  quite a new aspect.  "The fact is," said ho to himself,  "thnt I have much more need, of her  than she can have of me. Her presence will be useful In drawing off suspicion from me. A man traveling aloue  across the steppes may be easily guessed to oe a courier to the czar. If, on  the contrary, this young girl accompanies me, I shall appear In the eyes of  alt the Nicholas Korpanoff of my podorojua. Therefore she must nccompnny  me. Therefor** I must find her agata  at any cost. It Is not probable that  since yesterday evening she has been  able to get a carriage nnd leave Nljnl  Novgorod. I must look for her. And  may God guide mo!"  Michael left tho great square of Nljnl  Novgorod, where the tumult produced  by tho carrying out of tho prescribed  moaRiiros had now reached Its height.  Recriminations from the banished  strangers, shouts from tlio agents and  Cossacks who wore using them ho brutally, all together mado nn Indescribable uproar, Tlio girl for whom lie  searched could not bo thero. It was  now 0 o'clock iu the morning. TUo  Btenmbont did not start till 12. Michael Strogoff had therefore nearly  three .hours to omploy In searching for  her whom ho wished to mako bis traveling companion.  Ho crossed tho Volga again and bunted through tho quarters ou the othor  side, where tho crowd wns much loss  considerable. He visited every road,  both In the high and low towns. Ho  entered tho churches, tho natural ref-  tigo for all who weep, for all who suffer, Nowhere did he moot with the  young Llvonluu,  "And yet." he repeated, "she could  not have left Nljnl Novgorod yet.

The guests all bring from one to a  dozen articles with which they are  willing to part. These are carried  about, well displayed by their respective owners, thus provoking con versa  tion in plenty.
