I looked 'round  in .despair   at   the  sandstone wall   bohirfii  us,  and sud-!  den ly 1 caught sight, of a small projecting ledge about.' four- or livo feet  'up tho ledge of the rock.  In far less time than it takes to  tell, Mark had picked me up bodily  and placed me there. It was not  more than a foot -in width, but it  was well above the water line, and a  .' tuft of thick grass growing out of a  ���������crevice a little higher up afforded  me "a firm holding to steady myself  ''by.

"Vou will lie safe from getting  splashed there," he said; but I  ���������could see that it was not of splashes that; he was thinking. "I shall bo  'back, in ten minutes; j havo not a  'moment to lose."  And with that he walked'out bold-  ily into tlio seething waves.  Be had hard work, after all, to  veach the boat. The current was  strong^ and several times, he nearly  lost his footing. By the time he  got, to it the water was -nearly: up to  iiis waist.  t wa,tched . him breathlessly. He  ���������clambered into the boat, and at once  -unfastened...thc rope that held it to  the rock.  So far I could plainly see what he  ���������was doing; but his further proceedings were a perfect mystery to me.  ���������First he stooped down, apparently  to examine something at the bottom  -of the boat; then, rising hastily, he  tore off his coat and waistcoat, roll-  ���������ed. the latter up into a small bun-  ���������dte, and put it down at his feet. I  imagined that he was steadying the  thwart"-; but it seemed rather a  waste of time, whilst I was standing  there  shivering, ��������� with    the    tide  ���������rising-every-minuter   - iPresefilly he sat down, and pulled  at couple of strokes in my direction.  Then ho stopped, 1 looked round,  seemed undecided.  Suddenly he got up, and made  "wild signs, which T was utterly un-  table l������ decipher; and then, arching  tooth hands round his mouth, he  -.shouted out something 10 me; but  the wind was rising, and fhe surf  breaking noisily on Ihe rocks below  ine, ond 1  heard not n single word.  Not knowing what, else to do, I  nodded violently, and'waved my  li&nd back to him, Apparently this  seemed to content him, for he sat  flown again, and began to pull. Dut  what is he doing?

Of course  sho had loved him in a way. lie set  his teeth nnd faced the cool, fresh  spring wind thnt blew across City linll  park. Thoy had both been young and  woalthyand proud of each other. Tho  engagement "hnd occurred as a matter  of course after his father had admitted bim to the llrm as a partner.  And now It had all gone up In smoke.

A flower seller stepped In his way,  with a smile of good fellowship.  "Vi'lots-ilvo a bunch!"  Shirley frowned and then paused.  Sho loved violets. Ho had sent some  to, bor every day for months-nt 70  cents a bunch, great, purple, single  pottylcd. beauties heavy with frngriinoo  and. hothouse loveliness. These were  double and small nnd a deep blue. Ho  smiled grimly and bought a quarter's  worth.   Ho was a poor man now.  Miss Whltworth was nt home, lie  was ushered into thu smaller, reception  room, tbo ono In old rose and gold that  Eyolyn liked best.

"They seemed a fit tin;-* symbol of tbe  state of affairs. I got them in City  Hall park.  They were ."i cents a bunch."  She rose and crossed to the table,  her back half turned to him as she  raised the violet;? to her face.  "I am glad you thought of them.  Thev ������ire a symbol of renieinhranco."  The solitaire on her loft hand sp-rr-  'xlod brightly among the violets, and  ���������Shirley's face .hardened as he wondered who' would place, the next one  tbere. lie rose, feeling dull aud helpless.  "That is all, I think," he said.' "1  only wanted to tell you Ihst so that  you might be spared any scene or emotionalism."  Still she was silenl. Ho looked at  her with eyes full of pain and pride.  Another solitaire was sparkling on the  petals of the .violets, and while he  gassed it was joined by many. He  stared at. them awkwardly as he, realized that she was actually crying. But  why?  "Don't, dear; don't do that, please.  I said you were free."  lie had not meant to, but some way  fust for the last time ho was holding  her hands close to his lips and looking-  clown into her brown eyes���������eyes that  Boomed strangely soft and tender  through their mist of tears.  "But don't you know ��������� how could  pou think"��������� Her voice was low and  broken. "I don't want to be free."  His hands tightened over hers, but  ho could not speak. Of course she did  not understand what ho had told her.  He must be strong and save her from  danger.  "Why do you make me'-say It all,  Jack?" She hesitated, waiting, then  went on:' "I don't care about the firm  or���������or anything except you. It only  means a fresh start, ,and you are young,  and���������and won't it be easier to start together, Jack?"  Ho released her hands.  "You're awfully good to me." he  said.

G McClure  Arab Ituttcr Making.-  Among the Arabs an interesting department of woman's duly is dairy  work. This, Jike all other operations.  Is carried out on an old fashioned and  ���������������������������itrinrchal plan. To make butter, for  instance, a small sheepskin is filled  with milk and tied to a ring in the  wall. The woman then sits lint on the  lioor and rocks it to and fro till little  balls of butter begin to form within.  These grow larger and larger and accumulate and arc finally brought out  as one big lump. The remaining milk  is then boiled on the lire with bits of  meat. The male members ot the family now come together; a large dish of  cooked rice is placed before them and  the boiled milk poured over It. Then,  making balls of the mixture with his  hand^ each member quickly swallows  his share and rises to wash his hands.  This done, the girls and mother sit  down and cat what the meu are pleased to leave.  ������  0  ������  6-������-0-������<)-������-0-''0---0-������'Cju-������0-,*-0'������-0-*"-0-������*0'*6  The day had dawned unpleasantly,  and the young man paused in the act  of buckiiug his suspenders, gazed out  of his small window at the dreary  landscape aud sighed. This cheerful  tiait was inherited from his father,  who had sighed through a life whose  molehills were all mountains, to belaid away at last under a weeping willow. Thus little Pimoon was left to  the caro and jurisdiction of his maternal grandfather. Zachariah Oayley.  Simeon was a young man now. Grandfather Gayley, despite the weight of  years, bore their burden with a cheerful spirit and still sought to steer some  rays of sunshine into the somber souk  of his depressed grandson.-  "Chirk up, Simmy," he would cackle.  "Git a gal an' spark her an* go round  smilin', same as I use tor when I was a  j-otuig feller."  One vital cause of the present gloom  was duo lo the fact that Simeon had  a girl, and she had lately shown an  alarming tendency toward more cheerful socicjy. So Simeon looked out of  the window and sighed. t  "A nice kind of Sunday this is going  to be," he groaned. "Looks like it will  rain by church time.

Some years ago a rather wolf dressed  man asked at the booking office at the  town station, Portsmouth, for a sea-  -man's-return-to-London,-but-tho-clerk-  refused to give him one, saying that  such tickets wero only issued to sailors and that he did not believe the applicant was one.  "But I am a sailor," said the man.  "But how am I to know that?" responded the clerk.  "Well," said the would be passenger,  "shiver my timbers, but you're a rum  sort of craft. Now, you wiry whiskered son of a sea cook if you feel my  starboard boom running foul of your  steaming lights you'll heave in your  jaw tacfele a bit."

McClure  The first W'inton tliat "came over,'"  Iind Incurred tho lasting displeasure of  the first Albright. I believe he had  boon slow iu paying a debt���������at least  there was a general Impression���������. vhat  "tho Winton slowness" was responsible  for the feud. Beyond a doubt Iho pres-  cut Wintons���������fathor aud son���������wore j  slow of speech and movement. Mrs.  Winton and Sue did not share in "the  fan.ily failing."  "A"ben Amos Albright's wife had died,  lie liad persuaded a younger brother to  ���������"move in and run "the farm"���������they  were two miles out of town���������and Grace,  who was then tifteen, was sent east to  a youh'g ladies' seminary. During her  ��������� four years', absence from I-Iighmoad.  her once vivid recollections of the en-  mi ly between the Albrights and Win-  tons grew dim and shadowy. When,  on tho day following graduation, she  was invited to spend a week, at a class-  male's home it was with no feeling of  apprehension tbat she heard her friend  eay, "Brother George has asked Jack  Winton to eouie down with him from  Harvard, and Ave shall be quite gay."  The Wintons that she knew had a  son, but his name was John. This  young man proved to be well built, self  possessed and clear of skin, and John  Win ton had been a long, lank, freckled  boy, very bashful, she remembered.  To be sure there was a certain drawl  in her new acquaintance's speech,  which reminded her of "that boy," but  perhaps all Wintons were slow spoken.  The four young people , thoroughly  enjoyed the week they spent together,  and it was with delight that Jack Win-  ton discovered on the eve, of his departure that Miss Albright's destination was the same as his own. "I'm  glad that we travel together," be said.  "Yes," Grace assented hesitatingly.  Jack's face flushed, and he turned to   liis-Jiost���������wath_the_e������planation,_"M.iss_.  Albright has just recognized an old enemy in your humble servant."  '��������� "Oh, no.'" Grace protested. "If our  fathers are foes wo need not be." And  she held out her hand to bim, with a  ' friendly little gesture.  During the three days' journey westward their friendship progressed rap-  Idly. They wero in the midst of one of  many animated conversations when  Mr. Amos Albright boarded the train,  at X., a station somo thirty liiilos from  Highmead. Grace saw him coming  down the aisle.  "There is father," she said hurriedly.  "He'll not recognize you, I'm sure! I  believe I'll introduce you as Mr. Jack."  When Mr. Albright bent to kiss his  daughter's upturned face he looked  keenly at the young man beside lier,  "Mr. Jack, father," Grace murmured  and blushed guiltily when the two  men shook hands gravely, and Jack  offered the newcomer his seat.  "I'll move opposite," ho said In Ills  pleasant drawl, "if you don't object,"  Before Ihey reached Highmead ho  ���������found himself drawn Into the conversation. To his daughter's delight Mr. Albright seemed to enjoy > talking with  bor friend. "Sensible young man!" lie  Mid to Grace when Jack went Into the  smoking car just before tlio trnln pulled into IlJgbmcnd, On tlio homeward  drlvo ho spoko of him again, "I've seldom met a young mnn," 1)6 snid, "ns  intelligent ns Mr. 'Jack.

The young man seemed to j  be an able assistant to his father, who j  Was at the head of d well��������� established  business.

"Yes," ho said, "but perhaps that  is too early for a Winton."  "Not,at  all,"  Jack calmly   assured  him.   It was evident that Mr. Albrigh:  meant to tost him.   The idea amused  him greatly, and ho laughingly related  the result of his call to his mother and  "It's a test, mother," he said, "and a  good one too. Nothing short: of an  earthquake, will get me up at; 5. 1  must wake then if I'm to keep my appointment at G."  "Nonsense!" Stic cried, "There's the  old alarm clock. You can set the alarm  for 5 and put it at the head of your  bed, Jack."  "Just the thing," he said gratefully,  "and I'll do it now." -  . Late in the evening his mother stole  into his chamber and, set the hands Of  the little clock forward an hour. "Jack  will never notice," she said to herself,  "and he dresses so' sjowly."  ���������After lie was asleep Sue tiptoed in.  There was no light in the room, but  she found the clock and set it an hour  ahead of time, as sho thought. Neither  mother nor daughter knew that the  sleeper, was doomed to wake at 3  o'clock, but promptly at that hour the  alarm sounded. Perhaps Jack can tell  the remainder of his love story better  than any oue else can, and I will give  yoi- his account of it.*-  "I was awake iu a moment, and if  ever a Winton hustled I did then. I  let the old horse have full swing, and  we trotted out to the farm iu great  shape. AH the shades were down, and  the place was silent as tho grave.

Ho forthwith  roundly rated thoso who were still  awake for taking so little interest in  tho case.

The   Chinese   Barber  nt  "Worlt.  Barbers are to be found everywhere ]  in China. No one need be at a loss to j  have his head'shaved in any city or,  village in the empire: Every day in the :  year there must be hundreds of acres ������������������  of Chinese heads shaved, and tails j  combed out and dressed that; were they {  united, would produce an Atlantic cable  of hair. It is customary for'a China-J  man to have his head shaved and!  dressed by the barber two or threo!  times a month. The paraphernalia of ;  the street barber consists of a small.  cabinet, which serves as a seat for his!  customer and a receptacle for his instruments; a round, wooden caseWith  metal basin for water, which is kept!  hot by a small charcoal furnace be- j  neath; attached to this there is a pole  ance against, some one ou lop. Thc  mass dissolved into half a doson fights  while the remaining'members danced  about scattering shrill advice and encouragement. The girl looked on helplessly, her feeble remonstrances completely drowned,in the tumult.  "Boys!" sounded a clarion masculine  voice from the doorway.  ���������' The fighters fell apart shamefacedly  at the sight of Mr. McKcnna, in whom  every boy, of the neighborhood recognized both friend and master.  "You know better than to-abuse the  hospitality of the house' in ibis disgraceful fashion. Out you go. But  first, Tommy, as president, must beg,  this young lady's pardon on behalf of  the club."      .-.:.,���������,.���������',���������'  "Dunno w'at she calls herself," Tommy, objected sullenly.

Thomas Adams,  oi Colliiifiwood, whoso almost mi-  raculous recovery from Bright's  Disease in its t worst stages has  en used a sensation in the medical world, is well known ih  Burk's Falls. She resided here for  yours before removing to Colling-  wood, and it was while living here  that she was stricken with the terrible disease that sweeps so niuny  into tho grave.  Airs. Adams has many friends still  living in Burk's Falls, and they well  remember tho helpless, suffering invalid, who, in March, 1900, looked as  if her only relief lay in death itself.  Thoy con recall how when the dro.id  words "Bright's Disease" fell from  the doctor's lips, the report went  around that Mrs. Adams' doom was  scaled, that she would never rise  from the bed of suffering* on which  she lay. They can recall how their  sympathy went out to the little children who would soon be mother.ess.  What Caused the Cure.  ���������  Then while they wailed and  watched,for the end, a gradual ��������� improvement came over the sufferer.  It. was hardly noticeable at first, but  as sho grew stronger and wus at  "as*~she'_grew���������stronger"-and���������was���������at"  length able to leave her bod and give  to.her children a mother's care, they  woiuioringly asked the cause. And  then tho truth came out. Mrs. Adams had on the advice of a friend  placed her trust in the old reliable  Kidney remedy, Dodd's Kidney'l'ills.  Slowly but, surely Mrs. Adams'  strength camo back till she was going about as if Bright's Disease had  never held her in its clutches. Still  the skeptics refused to believe. "It  i.s only ono of tho vagnrios of the  (lisou.se," thoy said. "It will co-mo  buck with the, winter," But wintex'  came and wont. Another summer  and another winter passed, and today Mrs. Adams is able to say,- "I  huvo had no return of the trouble  since Dodd's Kidney l'ills brought  me back from thu brink of the  grn\o."  And now nil Burk's Falls, nil those  who 1 know Mrs, Ailuins in sickness  and health, nro forced t'o, admit  IViiild'.s Kidnoy Pills cin-ocl her  Bright's : Disease, and cured It to  stay curod,  .'Neither has the lesson taught by  Mrs. Ailuins' case, been 'lost.

The haldhe.idcd man who is not i"e-  siftnGd to his fate and who is-posted on  the etiquette of \vij* woarli.g adorns  himsoif with a faithful copy of i/ature  which siinuhitos his poverty instead of  hor wealth, says ihe Chicago Tribune'.  For an artistic- wig for a man is usually made thin or nearly bald on the  crown, so as to allay suspicion. When  the wig is adjusted to the man's head,  tho pink scalp shows through tho white  not of foundation at the crown, thus  leaviii.'; a modest suggestion of baldness. This is the first principle of the  otii-tietU* of wl"; wearing-claim too little rather than too much of nature's  covering.  This principle i.s carried to a refinement of perfection by tho man who can  afford the luxury of buying several  wigs, for he may thon make the transition from baldness to a semblance of  his former self cover a space of two or  throe years and thus complete the deception, which is the aim of all wearers  of wigs.  A cardinal, point in the etiquette of  wig wearing is that one should not  wear his wig in bed. It is not proper.  Some, either from motives of extreme  vanity or from an unwillingness to  shock the delicate sensibilities of their  families, sleep in their .wigs. This practice i.s condemned unhesitatingly. It is  unclean. One should substitute for the  wig worn during the day a simple  nightcap of muslin, to insure one  against taking cold.  In the morning, as the last touch of  perfection to the toilet, .the wig should  be delicately adjusted and then glued  to one>'s head. If this adjustment is  carefully made and if one is wearing  a really fine wig he may defy both  wind and sunlight to betray that  "things are not what they seem."  This careful adjustment of the wig  is a most important point. It requires  eternal vigilance, since a single careless adjustment means ruin.

The human race is a hard race to  please. It even'makes a merit of  being dissatisfied --with-everything,  and says that discontent'is a necessary elemen; of progress*. Its progress is, however, sometimes a thing  to make you laugh, for it is evi-.  dently ajler not self improvement,  but only change ot condition���������that  ie, displacing some one elee in the  situation tie has, or getting posses  eion of something, belonging to  somebody else. We are said to  derive our chief pleasure out of expectation, but I am nof. sure that  our chief delight in life is in not  knowing what will turn up ihe next  minute. But an optimist must  often get impatient at the way  things go. It seems almost ludicrous, for instance, to look over a  world evidently-intended for the  best development of man, and s<e  sucha large proportion of the people  organizing and arming and drilling  for the, ex press purpose of killing  each other, on land and sea, and  fancying thaUhey are 'ranknig progress in'civilization, because they  are constantly  inventing ?up rior  her intention to create coal as contraband of w&r in contravention of  a previous declaration, made by her  in 1884, that she would never accept an interpretation that coal  could be considered contraband by  international law. The poblem of  coal supply is quite a seriou ��������� matter  for the Russians themselves to solve  should they decide to tend their  Baltic fleet to the Far East this  summer The voyage to Port  Arthur from the Baltic ports would  mean a voyage of almost, two  months and the burning of something like 50,0-'0 tons of coal, with  the question also uf how to keep up  the coal supply after getting there.  The question therefore arises, is coal  '' an article necessary for the defence or subsistence of either" of  the belligerents in the Far East;  *' without which it would be dim'  cult fi,r them to cany on the eon-  test," or, ** an article required for  the prt sedition of the war ?"  Inacffininof^rjirTgSo^^i-lfra-ll-the-  rot of the.peopLe submit to ������������������heavy  taxation to  keep'.thevkilling contingent in trim-for their work.    It  may be true that war is-' nece*-sary  to preserve a manly spirit and bring  out the sturdy virtues, but it is also  amuBing46>hear it ..aid'that this is  for the sake of peace,   Another fea-  ture of our civilization, and perhaj s  one of the worst, is, to see a proportion of the race engaged in, a fight  to get away each other's properly.  Men are always engaged in  this  struggle, and we call it increase in  civilizatioii because they use legal  methods now lo do bo.   At any rale,  tho struggle, though not less keen  than in former age?, is moro orderly.   And yet we can justly say that  at the beginning of thi~ disturbed  and bellicose year, there are moro  people who live by tho golden rule  than in any year before.   There are  more people who aro willing to earn  their living by honest labor of hand  and brain, more who intend to pay  their debtf, more who intend not to  incur obligations thai thoy cannot  meet, and a great many others who  are in sincere sympathy, with tho  penury and suffering  and ignorance of this world, and are lavi.h  in their gifts to roliovo thom.    If  wo think of it, since 1890. thorehoa  been a great increitsu of tho nuin her  of people who hnvo made largo gifta  for ifohoole, libraries, hospital?, and  boncfi-k-ni charitiiM.    It is now a  matter of Burprbo to the public if a  rich man or woman does nothing  for the public bonnilt.  There things  all servo to mitigate tho situation,  but wo are still in Ihe freezing and  thawhiff winter of discontent, nnd  Ivmvuvo wo Mfovo in divine purpo-  ���������io-, we bi-licVu there will he n Spring,  a Summer, a ripening Autumn, nnd  that when the Winter of the phuiot  rest and \mm.
