The October sunshine had mellowed  the morning chill and was making free  with Miss Appleton's brown hair, causing it to send out red and gold gleams  that no ono would suspect lurked in its  dusky strands.  The doctor drew up at the gate.  "Any errands in town today, Miss  Minta?" he called out cheerily. "I'm  out of .patients ,(pun unpremeditated)  nnd,running errands for the ladies."  Ainiiita leaned her smooth fair chin  upon the top of the broom handle contemplatively.  "I don't think I need anything���������oh,  well, yes; you might get me a skein of  crimson zephyr wool if yon will."  "Sure," returned the doctor heartily.  "I've picked up some little job at every  house I've passed. There's one more,  Mrs. Lynd's. Guess she'll have enough  commissions to keep me hustling the  balance of the day."  The doctor chuckled in his boyish  way, then fell to wondering as he  stowed away Miss Aminta's silver dollar why she had refused to join in his  merriment and had turned so abruptly  about to resume hot* sweeping. It was  a little unusual for the ladies to be unresponsive when he offered to shop for  them.  Mrs. Lynd, a blooming pink and  pearly widow, was fairly lying in wait  for him in the shade of her frilly little  buff portico, and the doctor's predictions as to the number of needs in the  shopping line were verified. She handed him a dainty little, memorandum  book. "You'll find the list here.'" she  said sweetly, "all at Bobbins', you  know. I havo an account there. I suppose Minta Appleton didn't condescend  to let you shop any for her. She always thinks nobody can do anything  properly but her. Now, I'm not .a bit  ���������-f ussy-myselfr-������������������ .  ���������     '-,���������;__���������-_������__  "Well." the doctor acknowledged,  "she did commission me to get her a  skein of red zephyr���������hey?"

It  was a little splash of edld water in her  face. Ainihta wasn't thirty and had  never called herself nor before been  called elderly. But in the eyes of  these candid infants, ranging from ten  to eighteen, she felt she must indeed  be in.tlie sear and yellow leaf;  "Aunt Mihta's just as sweet and  pretty as a girl," asserted Minta May  stanehly, "and she must try her fortune too. Mrs.'Lynd said. Dr. Love-  land said she'd make a splendid wife  for the minister."  Miss Amiubi promised to surrouder  hor premises to the youthful besiegers  and retired from the field with flushed  cheeks and a curious expression iu lier  serene gray eyes.  If Dr. Loveland's horse had not been  lame and therefore incapacitated for  business on the IJOtb of October and if  Dr. Loveland, out on a foot expedition  and caught by the'autumn nightfall,  had not taken a short ciit through Miss  Appleton's back premises, the skein of  romance so skillfully tangled by Mrs.  Lynd might have remained tangled-indefinitely.    However,  the  doctor did  take the short cut, and, treading gingerly through the late, crisp grass, he  stepped upon some round object that  gave pliantly under the pressure of his  foot.   A slender, long glimmer of light  came from Miss Aminta's kitchen and  fell upon a slight crimson line running  to the door, which arose, taut, as the  doctor   lifted   the   object   from   the  ground���������a   ball   of   red   zephyr  wool.  Walking deliberately to the house, he  wound the strand of thread as he went  up rue step and on to the porch, where  Miss Aminta stood, a startled look on  her face, which was pale in that yellow  light,  and  four shining  knitting  needles in lier hands, from which ran  the crimson thread.  The doctor stepped suddenly  back,  his face glooming.  "I thought at first it might be fate  and' that she was going to be kind," he  said, "but I recognize the skein of red  wool, and���������of course the minister must  have his slippers for Christmas."  Aminta's forehead took on a mystified frown.    'T  know  nothing  about  any minister's slippers, and I should  scarcely think of knitting them out of  crimson-worsted if I did. ' Poor brother  Tom   suffers   from   rheumatism'  and  wants some knitted wristlets"���������   "Then���������maybe it was fate, after all."  The doctor stepped joyously forward?  Miss Aminta turned primly aside.  "Since, you think the role of clergyman's wife my only fitting one"���������  "But T   don't,"   cried   the   doctor.  "Somebody's been lying like Ananias.  I think"-  The gleam  of  light from  the door  suddenly .widened   and   a   hilarious  young mob rushed out, shouting lawlessly.  "Goody, goody." shrieked Minta May,  "Aunt Minta threw a ball of yarn, and  Dr. Loveland has found.it."  "I   didn't,"   protested   Miss   Minta,  looking  Inclined to  fly  for her  life.,    -The   curious   sight is'presented   at  "There was a great spider on the bull,   tin.,   village   pi'   ..Yet.tlet'on,    l.incoln-  and in trying to shake it nwny and   shire, of men, gathering in a portion  fling it into the yard  I accidentally   of Inst year's ���������harvest.  tossed tlio yarn too."  "It was providential," said the doctor, stealing an unabashed arm about  Miss  Minta,  "for  tho clew  led  ma  straight to paradise."  A TIME SAVER FOR COMPOSITORS.

ZfcClure  t  Mariquita Josepba Maria was her  name, according to the baptismal records in the little white.mission church  at San Junipero. Over at Happy Chance  we called her Quit a.  Some way she seemed to belong more  to Happy Chance than she did to San  Junipero, with its soft toned bells and  the solitude of cloistered gardens, She  was tall and slim and sunburned, with  lips like the heart of a rose and dark  shadowy eyes that looked sidelong at  one and made the earth seem an excellent place to live in.  Before Happy Chanqe had opened up  as a silver raining center the shack of  old Tom Ferrier had held its own up  on the mountain side and dominated  the whole valley. No one knew when  it had been built. Ferrier had drifted  from camp to camp down through Colorado nnd crosswise through, the Sierras until Mexico was the limit, and he  found Happy Chance.;' It'.was a bit of  the wilderness that had escaped fortune seekers and railroad surveyors,  and he held it for his own and believed that some day.he would be a silver king.  In earnest of that belief he had built  the shack and married Dolores Ruiz,  daughter of the old Mexican who  claimed the valley by prior right. The  result was a success in a way. There  were no signs of silver, but there 'was  that waited in the Silver Star. Quita  was gone. Old Dolores said she had  been carried off by the devil with the  Irish eyes to the mountains, and Sim  asked for company.  We were willing to go. She was a  home product, nnd we didn't propose  having any stray blue eyed maverick  come but of the north and steal her  away.  Up through the valley wo rode that  night, forded the Yarba .lust below  the falls and took to the broken trail  that led to the mountains on the California line. Lnrrv was making ,-_r the  States by his tracks, and we hoped to  catch him before he'struck a railroad.  "Will you plug him ou sight, Sim?"  asked Keno Davis, in mild interest.  "I don't believe there'll be any shaking hands," said Sim grimly, and we  gloried in the coming fight.  Just before sunrise we came upon  themdialf way up Bald mountain.   As  we rounded a corner of the trail a gray.,  ^sombrero showed above the tangled  growth'of. vines and ferns that clung  to the top of the rocks.    Sim put a  'bullet through it neatly.   The answer  laid Keno Davis out tinder the shade  ���������! of a scrub pine, and we decided to rest  'and do battle scientifically^ as Larry  ; had i\ clear eye and a mighty good  ;'"chance to take "his-, pick of a hostile  force.   While the rest of us engaged  j his interest'from the trail below the  ' rock, Sim took four,others and started  Von a detour to reach a point above.  I    It was a good fight.   There was > no  yelling or. Apache war dancing, only  a steady, quiet interchange of compliments that meant business, and a gradually closing in around the rock.   ,  |    We knew Quita must be with him,  but whether she had fainted or been  bound we could not telj, until suddenly  a clear, sharp cry rang out, and every  man  lowered his gun at the sound.  ���������It was a cry for help,  we believed,  I and we sent back a shout that echoed  IF  JESS  "By Martha  McCullocb- tVilUams  .Copyright, VMS. by T.

We had heard of Larry  before. He was a gentlemanly boy  with a good record behind him of ways  of honor. He wns a miner, but be never mined. He would follow the cry of  fame to a new camp and laze around  for a few weeks until he found a claim  that suited him. He paid in cash, and  the camp would see him no more until  one day ho would come back.with''some  poor innocent of a capitalist he had  corralled, nnd tho claim would change  hands, nnd Larry would ride on in triumph, ten thousand to the good.  It showed a depth of intuitive wisdom thnt the world respected, and Happy Chance welcomed him; also-ho. had  a winning way with, women. He whs  gny hearted nnd debonair nnd masterful, with eyes of. Irish bine nnd bnir  like a walei' spaniel, chestnut curled.  IIo never wooed with words;,o-nly with  his eyes. They worosiililclont. You con-  not make out a case against a man on  1ho score of tender eyes. So Larry rode  scot freo over a lila,'h\yh,\* c'lf sighing  ���������hearts���������until ho struck Happy Chance  nnd Quita.  Thero wns a dance at Ddrrlty'sthq.  night lie en mo, and lie rnmbli  ta was dancing, and as ho  doorway, watching, sho whirled by  him on big Sim Unwdon's arm, and the  cluster of scarlet m mm In In flowers she  woro In hor hnlr fell nt Lurry's feet,  Sim went buck fur them, Tl.e.v were In  tho broiiNt pocket of' Lurry's shirt', nnd  the two went outdoors to settle the argument for possession, while Qultn  perched herself on a window sill and  smiled contentedly.  It wns the beginning of a state of  nll'fili'H which Happy Chimco resented.

But with the coming of  Lurry there wns* n change, We curried .-"im homo from iho dance with a  "For God's sake, boys, quit firing!"  It was hard to obey with victory so  near and the bullets flying wild around  our heads from tho hidden hand behind the rock. But we stopped, they  did also, and we scrambled from ledge -  to ledge up over the ragged, splintered  stones until the top was gained, and  ������we-looked������down-on-LaiTy������and-his_cap^  tive.  It was a strange sight. Back againsl  the rough, gray rocks stood Quita, her  eyes aflame with reckless courage and  defiance. Larry's two revolvers vere  gripped, still smoking In her hands.  At her feet lay Larry, his white face  upturned to the dawning light and a  dull, crimson stain soaking the right  side of his gray flannel shirt.  "I'll shoot the first ono that dares  to touch him!" called Quita.   "You're  a pack of cowards to follow and hold,  us up like this!   What's he done?"  "He stole yqu,"  It was Sim who answered her.  Qultn turned on him like a flash.  ���������"He didn't steal mo, Sim.

Her pink calico frock was  turned up high in front, so high her  feet were plainly visible���������pretty feet  enough, in spite of the scuffed shoes,  smallish, well arched and light stepping, to say nothing o.f the .slender  ankles above them. The ankles matched taper wrists, but gave no hint of  the dimple swelling arms revealed by  sleeves rolled halfway to the shoulder.  Big, soft, new leafage flung down  variable shadows on her bare head.  Slie kept the dasher moving merrily,  now and again patting one foot in  time to it. Her voice, if untrained, was  clear and not too loud���������altogether, the  man coming down the creekslde in  high wading boots, with a rod in his  hand, a creel slung from his shoulder,  ���������would have been justified in finding  himself glad of her presence.  ,  He was distinctly not glad ���������curmudgeonly fellow! He had been whipping the stream for trout since sunrise  with no luck at all. .'All bis hope was  centered upon tho cool, deep hole just  below the spring house. He .knew'the  stream of,,"old, and tliat particular  reach.df it had never yet failed to give  him good sport. Why must this creature go spoil his chances with her idiotic trilling? Fish had sensitive ears-  he was certain of it. Nothing would  rise to the most tempting lure after  such affronting of the auricular sense.  "George, 1 wish she was in���������Halifax!"  he said to himself as he prepared, rather hopelessly, for a cast. He had hardly looked toward the singer���������besides  Robin .Adiar, with an accompaniment  of whishing, buttermilk rather get on  his nerves. As the song kept up he  called over his shoulder, in anything  but an amiable voice:  "Madam, I will pay you double price  for the butter you are churning if you  will go away until afternoon and let  me fish in peace."  "Indeed you  won't!"  Jess  retorted,  into a crevice of the bottom, beyond  his power to pull them out. He tugged and strained and swore, this time  audibly, for some minutes. He was  not in the least hurt. His feet had  room a-plenty in their rocky channel,  but he could not get them ont until  the stone was moved from over it.  lie had forgotten tlio girl, singing and  churning at the spring house, but remembered her now, noting both  sounds had ceased. He was on the  point of calling to her when he caught  a flash of pink on the farther bank  -,-,1 i,rt���������...* *,or snv wirh sparkling  malice: "How do you like it, gettln'  caught yourself? Ain't you ready to  cry quits with the big trout?"  "How do you know I caught hira-?"  Beclcley retorted. The girl shrugged  her shoulders the least bit. "I watched you���������to wish you bad luck���������you  were so rude," she said. And as she  said it he noted that neither accent  nor intonation was rustic. He looked  at her appealingly. "I was rude���������a  perfect brute," he said. "Do please  forgive me and go fetch somebody to  help me out of this."  "I'll help you out myself oh two  conditions," Jess said, dimpling beautifully. Beckley bowed meekly. "Only  name them," he said. "The first is���������  cut your line," Jess retorted promptly.  "The big trout is a friend of mine.

"You shall bear that when you're out,  of the woods���������andV water," Jess answered, dimpling again. In a whiff she  had to run to a foot log a little way up  stream, crossed it and was beside  Beckley, a stout fence stake-in her  band. '"Get a good purchase with it  and pnsh the rock down stream," she  commanded. "The current will help  you if it is slow,here-in the pool. Now!  All together! There. It's over.

One of the most remarkable of fi3he������  is the mudfish, which inhabits certain  of the rivers of western Africa and, a&  its name implies, lurks at the bottom  of these rivers. In that vegion the rivers are liable to periodical droughts*.  When such a drought is' imminent, ih������  fish retires to deep water and excavates a pit, in which it lies, covering:  itself over with a thick layer of mud.  ir can then bear with impunity tli������*  complete drying up of the river. But  the most interesting fact about th������  creature is that during the time of its.  voluntary imprisonment it breathes air  directly through an aperture left io  the cocoon by means of lungs just lik������  ,t land animal." When the returning  rains dissolve the mud and liberate the-  Ish, it breathes by means of gills, jus$ -���������  ake any other fish.  C.olt������r in &)> eeji h ml l.u. in lis.

'mmmmmteWk aWm****^*^MWj*W**A**1������*%  Mrs. Bittersweet* s  Proposal  Copyright, IMS,  by T. C. McClure  By...  HARRIET  WHITNEY  DURBIN  "Peppers and pumpkins! A widow  moved in right next door, and this  leap year!"  Mr. Alonzo Larkins stared apprehensively out of bis window as if he  expected to see his newly arrived  neighbor flitting up his porch steps in  search of him with a lasso. Instead  he really did see a small, inoffensive  looking woman walking serenely from  her doorway toward her own front  lawn bearing a pot of pansies and n  trowel.  "Oh, of course," he continued caus:  tically, "wants to make a good impression first before she lets out at me!  Well, ma'am, my heart is tough. But  you are a neat little bundle," he added,,  with a slight change of tone; "trim  as a sassafras whistle. That's right-  let that ruffled-;-* up pink contraption  slide off your head. (L-urii, what shiny  brown hair! And look at the little  - curl bobbing over her off ear!"  Little Mrs. Bittersweet did not seem  at all troubled by the orb.Mr. Larkins  . deemed it expedient to keep focused  upon her. She trotted around about  her own business, paying little heed to  the doings of her bachelor neighbor.  The first.time she met him plump and  square she gave him a sweet, indifferent little neighborly "Good morning,"  wfyjch somehow excited his discontent  '".and ire.  'Took about as much notice of me  ns she would of a brindle dog," he  complained to himself; "in fact, not as  much.   She pets up all the old stray  ,-dogs  and  gives  'em  bones.    What's  'the matter with me, I'd like to know."  He looked anxiously into the mirror  ns he brushed his hair. He saw therein a good looking-and fairly good ria-  tured face, the chief defect of which  was an expression tending toward self  conceit.  "Now, ma'am," he observed decisively,   addressing   the   absent   widow,  ceived n plump "No!" the result of  Miss Pcdderly's championship and a  streak of contrariness in the widow's  disposition.  He accepted tbe sentence with visible disappointment, but bore it with  manly fortitude.  "I'm sorry, nia'ani," he said frankly,  "tearing sorry. I've taken more of a  shine to you, somehow, than I ever did  to any ono, and I'd be good to you. you  can bank on that, Hut if you can't like  me you can't. There, now. madam;  doi.'t no and o.ry~-dou't.o I wouldn't  hurr. your feelings  for forty farms."

"I'm so-oo-o sorry," she faltered,  blushing and sobbing, "I"���������  "Don't  mention   it,"   implored   Mr.  Larkins.   "Don't you be miserable or,  blue about it.   But if you should���������kind I  of   change   your   mind,   you   know, j  ma'am, just let me know; won't you?"  Mr. Larkins dived headlong into his  garden patch and. hoed vigorously to  distract his thoughts, and the widow  sat down on the edge of her porch and  swung her neat little foot dejectedly.  "I do believe I'm half witted," said  she under her breath. **I u-sr** say I've  lost as good a man as I'll ever meet,  and all because Henrietta Podderly  told me to run after him. I needn't  .have run after hh.ii, but I could have  thrown him away, and I ain't half as  smart as I thought I was. I'm lonely  and 'miserable, woo-op-oo." Mrs. Bittersweet ran into.her-sitting room and  cried as heartily as JMr. Larkins hoed.  After that she smiled sunnily whenever she met hinv He smiled genially.  The widow daily became more lone.  some and more convinced that she had  discarded a congeniaf spirit.  "He won't proposa again In a hundred years," she bemoaned herself,  "and no wonder, he don't want to risk  another snub. He did tell me to let  him know if I changed my mind. I  hate to like fun, but"���������  One golden afternoon when both  were sitting .in an unusually pensive  mood upon Mrs. Bittersweet's porch  the widow's ���������"heart suddenly prompted  her to a little prospecting,  "Mr, Larkins," she said softly, "do  you ever change your mind?"        J '  "No," returned Mr. Larkins plumply.  "Not without" solid reason." V  "We-ell," she continued, holding her  ^breath-at��������� her���������ow.n-boldness,_^iw.ould.  you still like me to���������er���������er���������be���������be"���������  Her meaning rushed through Mr.  Larkins like a streak of electricity. He  sprang out of his lolling attitude at a  bounce.  "Polly, if you're asking me if I'd like  you to be my wife, I say yes���������yes-  yes.

What  is it, darling?"  "Why, I've actually as good as asked  yon to marry me," gasped Tolly, "just  what I've always declared I'd die rather than do! Oh, well," as Alonno's  arm stole protoctingly around her  waist, "I guess I was excusable this  time. But, Alonzo, listen.

"It always makes me tired," said an  old barber, "when a man tells me to  quit wasting so much time rubbing in  the lather and hurry along with his  shave. If he only knew itV be is laying  a sure foundation for a chapped and  sore face. The reason for using soap in  shaving is to remove the grease always close to the skin and on the surface of the beard. This cannot be done  without rubbing it well lu. Many persons who shave themselves do not understand this and wonder why they  have sore faces. They blame the bay  rum and change off to witch hazel or  something else. R.ubbing the soap in  well makes the beard soft and pliable.  It also lessens the chances of the razor  slipping. Always rub the lather well  in with the lingers, never with ihe  brush."

Iieg-  ularly at 8 o'clock five days in the week  she was at her post, peeping over the  fence very cautiously lest the boy himself should discover her.  There was something about this particular boy that she liked. His eyes  were as blue as those of Gladys Arabella, her favorite blond doll. That in  itself was enough to draw her stormy  gaze like a magnet./; But there were  other things beside. There was the  easy way that he sat on his pony, there  was the way he pulled bis cloth cap  rakishly to one side, there was���������well,  there was a daring, dashing, fascinating something about bim even at fourteen that proclaimed him one of the  conquerors.     V  For weeks she had paid him the silent homage of that trip to the fence  each morning. Then one day, waxing  careless from long security, her black  head and big dark eyes appeared just  above it. He slackened bis pony and  stared at her with open curiosity.  "Hello, there! What you staring at,  sissy?" he called out with boyish roughness.   The head disappeared.  He waited a moment, but as she failed to reappear he dashed off down the  road laughing.  After that it was his delight to catch  her watching him. He would turn at  the most unexpected moments to see  if he could surprise her. But when,  once in awhile, he succeeded in getting  a glimpse of the gypsylike.,, head:and.  the, fiery dark eyes. his brusque0 "Hi  there, sissy! See anything green?" always had the same effect. She dropped  out of sight.  *******  It was a private school for boys kept  by an old friend of the family. So her  parents sought a place for her there  when it was necessary for them to sail  without their small daughter.  For her the excitement of being  rpla^e"d~in'~tBenMho^l~^'liere���������"tlie"���������boy"  went each day was delicious. They  had known each other for a year���������that  is, she had watched, him and he had  known that she was there.  "My eye! It's the girl who's always  peeking over the fence," he remarked  to his chum at his fjrst glimpse of the  new pupil. "Isn't she a regular Indian, though!" and he gazed curiously  at the straight, shining black hair arid  the black eyes. He did not mention to  his chum that he liked shiny black  hair and eyes like big, dark stars.  After awhile he looked toward her  and smiled, a foolish friendly smile.  Instead of meeting this overture with  the ladylike grnciousness that her  training hud taught, she made up a  face at him. Guess he wouldn't think  now that she liked him���������that horrid  boy!  For some time after this ho Ignored  hor, but. at lust he impulsively proffered her a stick of honrhound when  thoy met In tlio corridor ono day.  With a stump of her foot she threw  It to tho ground. "If your mollier  makes you 'oat bom-hound, eat it yourself. I'm not going to eat It!" sho  flashed out with spirit, Then, In a  tumult of happiness, she Hod, leaving  the nstonlsliod boy gazing after her  with un open mouth.  "Spitfire!" was his greeting when  next they mot.  Thus the loo wns broken. Morning  after morning now he camo to school  with some offering for the girl.

Later a .certain socioty belle whose  "dark beauty" was much exploited by  the newspapers, occasionally found  herself wondering, in off moments,  what had become of the boy. And he!  One must not be hard on him. The  world is so full of pretty girls, and his  eyes were blue and daring, his shoulders broad and he was gay and debonair.  V;*''*       *      ���������       ���������       ���������       *  ���������.*.'he had readied t.ie mature age of  i-wputy-fvp on, n gray day in November, and the girl and her companion  paced aimlessly up and down the platform of the little Scottish railway station, waiting for the southbound train.  A handsome young man who had  been taking a turn up and down the  opposite platform, waiting apparently  for a train to tlie north, glanced across  at the people who, like himself, paced  back aud forth impatiently. As his  eyes fell upon the tall, graceful girl  with a face like a brilliant flower, he  paused in astonishment. Then a wave  of warmth and excitement surged over  him and he dashed across the tracks  and advanced with boyish eagernese  toward her.  It was a pretty bit of comedy sparkling with pleasure, surprise, eagerness. Then the big black engine swept  down upon them with a wild, triumphant shriek as much as to say: "No*  more of this nonsense. Come with me  ���������to London, young lady." And in tht  midst o^ their excited greetings, they  were obliged to part.'  "Not married'.'" she laughed as he  stood at''the door of the compartment.  u "No, I'm waiting for the lady fair,"  he answered g.'iyly.   "And you?"  "Waiting1 for the gentleman darlc,-*  she replied archly.  Them the gunrd called "All aboard,"  and. as she waved her hand in gay  farewell, the train pulled out of the  station.  Tbe world seemed suddenly flat te  him. "And I didn't get her London  address!" he exclaimed alouu. as his  stupidity dawned upon him. "Well, I'll  be hanged!"-  *******  Two years later the servants at Fair-  acre received notice from their young  mistress of her intention of opening  the house for n few weeks. The old  place had been closed since her early,  childhood.  ���������She-had-traveled~fai,~and-w-ide;-been-  courted and admired. But after awhile  one got tired-so tired. In the very  midst of the seuson, when gayety wa������  at its height, thoughts of the dear old  days haunted lier mind. They .were  gone forever, those wonderful childish  days, but at least she would go back  and have a bit of "make believe" all  to herself.  Tears rose in her eyes as she wae  driven up to hor own door. How well  she remembered the quaint supporting pillars and the broad veranda! The  sun was just dropping out of sight, but.  its faint.golden glow lingered lovingly  on thefiplflce.. In tho darkness of her  old room that night; she thought with  wet icyeVot' tho little girl of other days.  At 8 o'clock the next morning sho  stole down to, the stone fenco once  more, smiling foolishly to herself as  sho did so. There wns no need to hide;  tho boy would not go by. And so she  leaned upon tlio wall, thinking pensively of tho past.  A weird buying aroused ber, and  she looked., up to see a big, red touring  ear spinning down tho road toward  her. For a moment she wnteljed it Indifferently. Then as ft drew nearer  and tlio outllnos of Its occupant bo-  camo clear her henrt Jumped with delight.

The first thing that strides an  Englishman coming into this country is the lack of thai hi iinuss and  conventionality that is so cha:a<"tor-  istic of the Old Country. 'law: for  instance the ordinary man ia the  street, who desiring to ������������������uuoke linds  huiisclf uiatchless.. In Ungland this  individual appi oacht s a pa.'-soi'-by  with such wortis as "\M11 *,ou be  good enough to oblige n c with a  light?"  "Oh,  thanks,  very much."  Here it is, "Say, old fellow, who's  got all the matches?" it is said m  a bluff, cheery sort of way, and is  pleasing to hear. It seems the very  essence of good will and friendship.'  This is only one instance, but it is  noticeable in a thousand other  ways.  Another very evident point is that  here there is scarcely any distinction  of classes.  In large places of business in the  Mother Country the head or heads  would be secreted in some almost  inaccessible sun .-turn, and approached  only with due reverence by any  member of their stafT.  Hero employer, manager and employes seem to mix in one common  brotherhood for their mutual advantage, and there seems very slight  distinction between them, save perhaps that of salary. It is scarcely  known in the annals of London for  an employer to walk down the street  with one of his employes.  Again there are several establishments that strike the average Englishman as rather "a novelty, such as  shoe shine parlors, barber shops,  with the operations in full display,  and the numerous laundries with such  names as "Sing Lung" over the  door.  Bicycles, or wheels as they are  called here, are found in greater  numbers than in any English town.  Their approach also is considerably  more silent than in the Old Country. The. first indication you seem  to have of the approach of one of  those "machines" is often a smart  rap on the shoulder. You tuin in  indignation, and vow to report ldm  to the next constable for having no  bell or light, when lo and behold! the  bulwark of the law wheels around  the corner on his wheel, similarly  without bell or light, and perhaps  misses you by a few inches.  There is considerable difference   be-  tween the electric cars horn and in,  the Old Country. Those in the English towns are more substantially  built, and carry passengers inside  and out. The number of passengers  capable of being carried varies f: om  50 to 80. The new cars of London,  which are run by the underground  system, carry 74���������38 on top and 3o  inside. This number must, not bt������  exceeded by a single passenger, or a  prosecution will be the result.  It docs not seem that the same  law is in force in Toronto, nor docs  thoro seem to be tho some regulation  as regards speed. The cars travel  about twice the rate here Ihat thoy  do in the Old Country.  It might also bo mentioned that  it is the rule throughout Great Britain for all traillc to keep to tho left  side of the road.  To come to perhaps a more interesting comparison. Ono misses to a  groat extent on this s'ido of tho Atlantic tho healthy pink bloom of the  average English girl, although this  is {imply compensator! fur in ninnv  other ways, Canadian girls, as 'a  rule, havo lino eyes. Thoir features  aro probably, on Iho wholo, moro  regular and shayply defined than  thoir English sisters, though not  rpilto so expressive. But as regards  figures, tho young ladles here entirely  put British rtamsols in tlio shade.  Thoy also display considerably moro  tact in dressing, sooming to know  exactly what suits thoni.

" What about the Presbyterian  horror of the prelacy?"  ''Oh, that was a bogy affair at a  time when the prelate was supposed  to have two heads and be a tremendous person. The prelate is  Bimply the nominal head of the  Church for the time bein^. The  Presbyterian Church has a Moderator only from year to year, the  Church of England"-ffers delinte  position and status."  " How could  you   conceive  the  Presbyterians,  wiih  their  defini e  doctrines, their definite policy, their  -Gleafeau.t^aQii.Uiiu_ioLnitig ;he. Methodists?"

Thnt is :o say, it presents  you with its positions, it shows you  ita body of doctrine, it shows you  the primitive policy mid usage of  the Church, it shows you, fiom the  very beginning, the orders of clergy  and the sacrtunents. It puts ti.e  hhtoric posith n. tho primitive idea,  bvforo you, and it say.������, 'you ought.'  The othor bodies say, 'you rmy.'  The Mothodisis would appeal to tho  Bible, So vvou.d the Church of  England, But it showfi you what  was from tho beginning and what  it hi ill posMt.son.

Q, :ite as nf en as any other girl she  learns to whistle a cradle song, low  and sweet, to the young voter in the  cradle.
