(Continued)  But mt? greater nosx was now coming.  The thunder of its many feet was near  me; a cloud of dust hung over it. A  squadron of cavalry came rushing by  and broke into the fleeing mass. Heavy  horses, cut free from artillery, came galloping after them, straps flying over  foamy flanks. Two riders clung to the  back of each, lashing with whip and  rein. The ruck of wagons came after  them, wheels rattling, horses running,  voices shrilling In a wild hoot of terror,  It makes me tremble even now, as I  think of it, though it is muffled under  the cover of nearly forty years! I saw  they would go over me. Reeling as if  drunk, I ran to save myself.  Zigzagging over the field, I came upon  a gray bearded soldier lying in the  grass and fell headlong. I struggled  madly, but could not rise to my feet.  I lay, my face upon the ground, weeping like a woman. Save I be lost in  bell, I shall never know again the bitter  pang of that moment. I thought of  my country. I saw its splendid capital  In ruins, its people surrendered to  God's enemies.  The rout of wagons had gone by. I  could now hear the heavy tramp of  thousands passing me, the shrill voices  of terror. I worked to a sitting posture  somehow. The effort nearly smothered  me. A mass of cavalry was bearing  down upon me. They were coining so  thick I saw they would trample me  into ielly. I took my hai" end envered  my face quickly and then uncovered It  as they came near. They sheered away  as I felt the foam of their nostrils. I  oad split them as a rock may split the  torrent. The last of them went over  Diertheip-tai!s~v,-hipping-my-f-aGet-���������-*-  ..nil  To,  ��������� V'  ���������cm*  ���������ail  ���������do.  ., I shall not soon forget the look of  their bellies or the smell of their  flanks. They had no sooner passed  than I fell back and rolled half over  like a log. I could feel a warm flow of  blood trickling down my left arm. A  shell shot at the retreating army passed high above me; whining as it flew.  Then my mind went free of its trouble.  The rain brought me to as it came  pelting down upon the side of my face.  I wondered what it might be, for I  knew not where Miad como. I lifted  my head and looked to see a new  dawn, possibly the city of God itself.  It was dark���������so dark 1 felt as if I had  no eyes, Away in tho distance I could,  near tho beating of a drum. I.t rang in  n great silence. I have never known  tiro llko of It. I could hear the fall nnd  trickle of tho ruin, but it scorned only  to deepen the silence. I felt tho wet  grass under my face and hands. Then  I know it was night and tho battletleld  where I had fallen. I was alive and  might seo another day, thank God! I  felt something move tinder my feet. I  hoard a whisper at my shoulder.  "Thought you woro doud long ago,"  It said.  "No, no," I answered; "I'm alive; I  know I'm alive, This Is tho battlefield."  " Trnid I ain't goin't* live," he snid.  "Got a terrible wownd. Wish it was  luoniln'."  "Dark long?" I asked.  "For hours," ho answered. "Dunno  how ninny."  IIo begun to groan and uttor Bhort  prayers.  "Oh, my soul wnltoth for tho herd  moro than they that watch for tho  morning!" I hoard lilm cry In u loud,  despairing voice.  Then thoro was a bit of sllenco, In  which 1 could hear him whispering  of his homo and people.  L Presently be began to Ring:  ���������'Ouldo roe, O thou Brunt Jehovah!  Ml Brim through this barren land.  1 urn weak, but thou art mlghty"-  Tllfl volco broke and trembled and  lank Into silence.  1 had business of my own to look aft-  cr-porlmps I had uo tlrno to lose-and  I went about It calmly. 1 hnd no  strength to move and began to feel tho  nonrln-- of mv time. Tho ruin wns fulling finder. It chilled mo to the marrow  iih 1 felt it trickling over my buck, 1  called to tho man who lay besiilo in������~  ������g<du und again I called to bim hut no  answer. Thou I knew that he wan dead  nnd I nlonc. T.-tm: after that in tin* far  distance I ln-nril a volco cniiitiu, it  rang like a trumpet In tin* ftlll nlr. It  grew plainer un I listened. My own  'inline! William Brower'/ It wun certainly calling to mo, ami I nin-wered  wltb a feeble cry. In a moment I  could hear Un- imuip of xi.no ������,.n- ��������� 'lining. Ho wiih Kilting beside ino presently, whoever It might be. I could not  tee lilm for tho dark. HI* tonguo went  Clucking an if lie pitied me.  ���������'Who are you V" I remember nuking,  but got uo answer.  At tu-st I was glad; then I began to  feel a mighty Horror of mm.  In a moment he had picked me up  and was making oif. The jolt of-his  step seemed to be breaking my arms at  the shoulder. As I groaned he ran. I '  could see nothing in tho darkness, but  he went ahead, never stopping, save  for a moment now and then to rest. I  wondered where he was taking me and  what it all meant. I called again, "Who  are you?" but he seemed not to hear  me. "My God!" I whispered to myself.  "This is no man���������this is Death severing  the soul from the body. The voice was-  that of the good God." Then I heard a  man hailing near by.  "Help, help!" I shouted faintly.  "Where are you?" came the answer,  now farther away.   "Can't see you."  My mysterious bearer was now running. My heels were dragging upon  the ground; my hands were brushing  tlie grass tops.   I groaned with pain.  "Halt! Who comes there?" a picket  called.  It must be a giant, I thought, who  can pick me up and carry me as if I  were no bigger than a bouse cat. That  was what I was thinking when I  swooned.  From then till I came to myself in  the little church at Centerville I remember nothing. Groaning men lay all  about me; others stood between them  with lanterns. A woman was bending  over mo. I felt the gentle touch of her  hand upon my face and heard her speak  to me so tenderly I cannot think of it  even now without thanking God for  good women. I clung to her hand,  clung with the energy of one drowning,  while I suffered the merciful torture  of the probe, the knife and the needle.  And when it was all over and the lan-  4eiui--4!ghts-gi"&w-paleju_the,dawii_LfelL  asleep.  But enough of blood and horror. War  is no holiday, my merry people, who  know not the mighty blessing"of peace.  Counting the cost, let us have war if  necessary', but peace, peace if possible.  CHAPTER XXVII.  UT now I have better things  to write of. things that have  some relish of good in them.  _jj I was very weak and low from  loss of blood for days, nnd suddenly  the tide turned. I hnd won recognition  for distinguished gallantry, they told  mc. That day they took me to Washington. I lay three weeks there in the  hospital. As soon as they heard of my  misfortune nt home Uncle El.) wrote, ho  was coming to see ine. I stopped him  by a telegram, assuring .him that I was  nearly well and would lie home shortly.  My term of enlistment had expired  when they lot me out a line day' in mid-  August. I was going homo for a visit  ns souud ns any man; but, in the horse  ���������all* of Faraway, I had a llttlo "blemish" on the ion Mourner, _m*ic ������_  was to meet mo at the Jersey City do-  pot Before going I, with other*" who  had beeu complimented for bravery,  went to seo the president. There wero  some twenty of us summoned to meet  lilm that day. It was warm, and tho  great Lincoln sat In his shirt sleeves  at a dosk In tho middle of his big office. Ho wore a pair of brown carpet  slippers, the rolling collar and black  stock now made so familiar In print.  His hair was tumbled. He was writing biiiTlcdly when wo camo ui. lie  laid his pen away aud turned to us  without spoaUlng. Thoro was a careworn look upon his solemn face,  "Mr. President," said tho general,  who hnd como with us, "hero aro somo  of the bravo men of our army whom  you wished to see."  IIo camo and shook hands with each  and thanked us In th������ namo of tlio republic for tlie exninplo of courago aud  patriotism wo and ninny others had  given to tlie army. Ho bad a loan, tall,  ungraceful llgurc, nnd ho spoko bis  mind without any frill or flourish. He  ���������aid only a few words of good plain  talk and was dono with us.  "Which is Brower?" Uo Inquired pre**-  cntlt-  1 enme forwnrd more soared than  ever I lad been before,  "My son," bo said, taking nay band  In his, "why didn't you run?"  "Didn't dnre," I answered. "I know  ii  ...... ���������������������������n-*r������ ���������"���������m"-"<>ii<j *���������<���������, run nwny  than to go forward."  "Heminds mo of a r-tory," snid he,  smiling, "years ngo thero was a bully  In Sangamon county, 111., that had tho  reputation of running faster and fighting harder thnn tiny mini there. Everybody thought he. was u terrible lighter.  H'-'d ntw.'iys got a nuin tin tho run;  ihi.'ii he'd hi-tch up and give htm a licking. ������">ne day lie tackled a lanio man.  The lanio man licked him iu a minute.  ������������������ 'Why dldu't >������ run?' somebody ask-  td th* victor.  Tii-in'i ���������������������������������������**.* _.<iid be,   'Jlun once  when He tackled me, an* ite Dees mm*  ever since.'  " 'How did ye manage to lick him?  said the other.  " 'Waal,' said h������, ������I bed to, an' I done  It easy.'  "That's the way It goes," said the immortal president; "ye do it easy if ye  have to."  He reminded me in and out of Horace Greeley, although they looked no  more alike than a hawk and a handsaw. But they had a like habit of forgetting themselves and of saying neither more nor less than they meant  They both had the strength of an ox  and as little vanity. Mr. Greeley used  to say tliat no man could amount to  anything who worried much about tho  fit of his trousers. Neither of them  ever encountered that obstacle.  Early next morning I took a train  for home. I was In soldier clothes���������I  had with me no others���������and all in my  car came to talk with me about the  now famous battle of Bull Run.  The big platform at Jersey City was  crowded with many people as we got  off the train. There were other returning soldiers, some with crutches, some  with empty sleeves.  A band at the farther end of the platform was playing and those near me  were singing the familiar music:  "John Brown's bedy lies a-molderlng- ft*  the grave."  Somebody shouted my name. Then  there rose a cry of three cheers for  Brower. It's some of the boys of the  Tribune, I thought. I could see a number of them in the crowd. One brought  me a basket of flowers. I thought they  were trying to have fun with me.  "Thank you," said I. "But what Is  the joke?"  "No joke," be said; "it's to honor a  hero."  "Oh, you wish me to give it to somebody."  I was warming with embarrassment  "We wish ycu to keep it," he answered.  In accounts of the battle I had seen  some notice of my leading a charge,  but my fame had gone farther���������much  farther, indeed���������than I knew. I stood  a moment laughing���������an odd sort of  laugh it was that had in it the salt of  tears���������and waving my hand to the  many who were now calling my name.  In the uproar of cheers and waving  of handkerchiefs I could not find Uncle  ~Eb-for-a-momentr-When-I-saw~him-ln-  the breaking crowd he was cheering  lustily and waving his hat above his  head. His enthusiasm increased when  I stood before him. As I was greeting  him I heard a lively rustle of skirts.  Two dainty, gloved hands laid hold of  mine; a sweet voice spoke my name.  There, beside me, stood the tall, erect  figure of Hope. Our eyes met, and before there wa3 any thinking of propriety I had her fc.,my arms and was kissing her and she was kissing me.  It thrilled me to see the splendor of  her beauty that day, her eyes wet with  feeling as they looked up at me; to foe]  again the trembling touch of her lips.  In a moment I turned to Uncle Eb.  "Boy," he said, "I thought you"-- And  then he stopped aud began brushing his  coat sleeve.  "Come ou now," ho added as ho took  my grip away from me. "We're goin'  t' hev n gran' good time. I'll tako ye to  a splendid tavern somowhoros. An' I  ain't goin't' count the cost nuthcr."  Ho was determined to carry my grip  for me. Hopo had a friend with her  who was going north In the morning on  our boat. We crossed tho ferry and  took n Broadway omnibus, while query  followed query.  "Makes me fool llko a flapjack t* rldo  'n thorn things," Bald Undo Eb as we  got out.  Ho hired a parlor and two bedrooms  for us all at tho St. Nicholas,  "Purty mlddlin' steep," ho snid to me  as wo left tho office, "It ls, sartln, but  I don't care-not a bit, When folks  lias t' hev a good time they've got t'  hev It"  Wo woro soon seated in our little  parlor, Thero was a groat glow of  health ond beauty in IIopo's faco. It  was a bit fuller, but had noblor out-  lino* and a coloring ns dollcnto as ovor.  Bho woro a plain gray gown admirably  flttod to hor plump figure. Thoro wai  a now and splendid dignity in hor carriage, her big bluo oyes, her noso with  (ta llttlo upward slant. She was now  tlie woll groomed young woman of society in tbo full glory of her youth,  'Uncle Eb, who sat between us, pinch-  ed hor check playfully. A llttlo spot  of white showed a moment whoro big  fingers bad boon; then tho pink flooded  ovor it,  "Vovnr ������n* n f-lrl pit tin oil a smfielr  ns you did," ho mild, laughing,  "Well," snid sho, smiling, "I guosf I  gave us good as I got."  "Served hhn rJgbt," ho said, "You  kissed back good nn* hard. Gran'  r, ,,..ii" j,,. ���������,},]f,,]i ti)t*r-i<ni[j fo me  "Bent I ovor hud," was my humblo  acknowledgment  "Seldom ovor soo a girl kissed so  powerful," ho snid as ho took Hope's  band in his.

King Edward, in accordance with  his annual custom, gave his Derby  dinner to the members of the Jockey  i'lub on the night after that historic  race, which, in the eyes of all English  people, is the most Important sporting  event In the world, says the Marquise  de Fontenoy. In the most remote wilds  of Canada, in the plains of British India, in the jungles and forests of the  dark continent, and up -n the highest  regions of the Rocky mountains of this  country, the first question that invariably will'be put by the most woebegone and abandoned Englishman whom  on������ may happen to encounter in tho  month of June, July, or August is as  to "who won the Derby."  The,Derby is the blue ribbon of the  turf. Lord Rosebery as a young man,  when asked to name the three things  for which he, experienced most eagerness, and which constituted the zenith  of his ambition, replied: "To win the  Derby, to become Prime Minister, and  to marry the richest woman in the  world."  He placed the winning of the Derby  first, and, although he married the richest of all the Rothschild heiresses and  attained the dignity of Prime Minister  of that vast British Empire with its  near, 400,000,000 population, and on  which th* sun never sets, yet far more  highly than either does he prize his  winning the Derby, not once but thrice;  the first time with Ladas, 'then with Sir  Visto, and last year with Cicero. In  the same way, it is known that when  King Edward won his first Derby with  Persimmon, exactly six years ago, one  of the most cherished dreams of his life  had been fulfilled.  The King seldom misses a Derby, to  which he proceeds no longer, as in day3  of yore, by road but by special train,  and his action in taking his consort, his  daughters, and his sisters to the Derby  has served vastly to improve the tone  of the meeting and to deprive it of  many of the I'owdy .and unsavory features by which it formerly was signalized.  It was the twelfth Earl of Derby,  married to the celebrated actress, Miss  Farren, who inaugurated this classic  race on the Epsom Downs in 1780. The  winner of the first Derby was Sir  Charles Bunbury, with his horse Dio-  med, which was sold for export shortly  afterward to this country for the modest sum of $300. Here, however, his  merits were appreciated more highly  than in the old country. For, only a  few,_we^a���������atter���������reaching_JSew_^XQEk,_  he was resold by his purchaser for the  sum of $7,000, dying a year later on the,,  stud farm, for the sake of which he  had been bought. It would be Interesting to learn if there is any stock at  present in this country that can trace  its descent to this winner of the first  Derby. ������������������'   ,  Tha Bard of Avon on Earthquakes.

It is a  wondrous realm, full of fascination  and interest. Farmers' bulletin No.  245, issued by the United States Department of Agriculture and entitled  "Renovation of Wornout Soils," contains a mine of information on the subject and should be in the hands of  every farmer and be studied as a  primer of agriculture. It is from this  we glean the following facts about the  Boil and plant life: The soil consists  of organic and inorganic matter. Under the first heading are included all  elements in the soil that are subject  to vital processes (growth and decay);  under the second, those elements thai  are not subject to these changes���������1. e*  minute portions of stone and gravel.  The elements named are permeated by  the soil air and water. It is the latter  ���������the moisture in the soil���������that contains the plant food substances, and it  is tihese that possess most interest and  -value���������from~the���������human^"Standpoint-  These substances are divided into two  classes, according to their ultimate  source. The soil furnishes nine of the  thirteen chemical elements used in  plant growth���������phosphorus, potassium,  calcium, sodium, iron, silicon, chlorine  and sulphur. Nearly all varieties of  rock particles, of which the soil quite  largely consists, contain more or less  of these elements. Every year the soil  water dissolves a thin surface layef  from each particle, and it is this solution which furnishes the plant its mineral food.  In addition to the elements named,  the plant in its growth requires hydrogen, which it secures from water  (which is a compound of hydrogen and  oxygen); oxygen, which it secures  partly from water and partly from the  air; carbon, which is secured from the  carbonic acid gas in the air, and nitrogen, which in many respects is the  most important of all the plant food  elements. As it is not found in the rock  particles of the soil, plants have to depend for their supply upon decaying  organic matter���������manure and other fertilizers. Being very soluble, the nitrates quickly wash out of the soil unless appropriated by growing crops. It  is to supplying nitrogen to the soil tbat  the legumes possess so great value for  the agriculturist. There is a certain  species of bacteria that can use atmospheric nitrogen, the supply of which is  unlimited, and the clover, bean and pea  families have learned to swap work  with thorn. When these bactoria are  present in a soil in which leguminous  crops are growing they invade the  roots of tbe plants and live there, their  presence bolng shown by swellings-  tubercles. Nitrogen from tho soil air  filters into the roots, whero the bacteria appropriate It, manufacture an  abundance of nitrates and give It to  tho plant In return for starch. The tissues of the plants thus become very  rich In nitrogen compounds, which  thoy sot freo when decay sets in and  which aro avallablo for any growing  crop. A condition of soil that likewise  , greatly favors the growth of tho plant  Is produced by humus, decaying vegetable matter, which may or mny not  be rich In nitrates, but which ronden  possible a proper circulation of air In  the soil and those chemical actions  which accompany a decay of organic  matter. Ono of the most important objects of plowing Is thus soon to bo n  loosening of the soil and a mixing ol  fresh air with It This Js but part ol  tho story, but still enough to show thai  fixed natural laws underlie and govern  ., M    .      .1    ..II .. . -.������     .  . i.

MOUNTAIN CLIMBING  IN THE ROCKIES  ���������^irrt Exploit of Canadian Al'pme oiuD���������  Alpenstock In the Descent���������Lady  Describes the Trip.  ^Catherine McLennan, special corre-  wpondent of The Mail and Empire,  ���������writes from Banff, B. C, under date of  S_ay 2:  The enthusiasm about mountain  clliribing has grown apace since the organization of the Canadian Alpine Club  in.'Winnipeg last month. So much so  .hat already a few energetic members  _iave tasted the pleasures and difficulties of a mountain climb In April.  It would foe difficult for anyone with  _, heart in tune with Nature to resist  "the alluring sunshine and the exhilarating atmosphere . of Banff. So when  ���������we found ourselves in this ibeautiful  ^spot, surrounded by mountains and  ���������with all conditions favorable, it was not  __rprislng that Mt. Ilundle, rearing Ha  magnificent outline against a cloudless |  _ky, attracted us to take a view from  its summit.  At six o'clock on April 13 a party,  ��������� consisting of a lady and five gentlemen, members of the club, was to be  seen leaving the Grand View Villa,  ���������filled with the spirit of conquering glee  end well equipped to battle with  rocky ascents and slippery snow  elopes. Each member of the party wat  ���������provided with an alpenstock or an ice-  *���������__������, these being Indispenslble to a suc-  ' cessful climb.      Two rucksacks, well-  ���������stored with a variety of good things to  ��������� *at and drink, a rope In case of emergency, and wraps to put on as we near-  -_ the Bummit, were carried toy dlfter-  -ent members of tho party. After a  -pleasant walk down the bridle path,  rand thence for a short distance through  a. "wood of pine and balsam, we arrived  at the base of thc mountain. For some  distance tho ascent ls made through a  ���������pai-ely-wooded district, but gradually  the face of tho mountain grows more  rooky, until at tho height of 2,000 feet  atbove the valley of the Bow River  ���������ne encountors vory steep, rocky  cliffs. At this stage In our expedition  we rested frequently, being refreshed  fcy the contents of tho rucksacks and  ���������enlivened by the well-told stories of  tour Scotch and Irish frlond.s; for our  party had a fair representation of each  of those countries, which havo given  ���������us ao many tales of wit and humor.  I-ooklng north-westward from our first  resting pluee, wo were much Impressed  _y the ever-winding Bow Itiv-'r, threading Its silvery coumo In and out among  the mountain!*, in the background,  Pilot Mountain, molting llko a sleeping  giant, and Mount Bourgoau woro con-  i-fosenuy penit arter peak arose as  far as the eye could see; and oser-nd*  ing a llttlo farther, we wero lllled with  dollght by sighting, In tho far dls-  4iuu"-o, Mount AsMlnlbolne, towering  11,800 f*et above B.a level, Having  passed entirety out of th* timber dls-  trlu, we eticjuiiti r< d a snow-fleld.  which, being frozen, retarded us very  little. For an hour wo hud a fairly  -Ifllcult pull up tho last snow-clad  ���������tM-ps to the nrlete,, seen at sky line  from tho valley. But wo were well rewarded when at twelve o'clock we found  ���������urselvfis at our point of d<>,stlnntlon���������  the lower of tho twin peaks, We had  A_pi-u ta -.u_-.ii io Uio Untiicr pew., but  found the gul'-h between ihe two quite  lmp***8/hlA. Th<* fli������*-*������nt *���������*. tho sK-eond  peak can be made by following the valley of the ftprsty Hlver farther to the  scale"/ot is mures arcnuecture. m tn'e  valley is seen again the graceful Bow,  ���������with its bare cut banks from which rise  those strange formations known as the  Hoodoos. These _#:,.pillars of clay,  standing erect from the cliffs and much  feared by the Indians. To the north are  the sparkling blue waters of Devil's  Lake, so-called because tradition maintains that evil spirits inhabit Its shores.  On either side of it rise Mount Inglis-  maldie and Mount Aylmer, the latter  th������'.'hl-best  nnok "In   this   viclnUv  We would ling-er long on tne summt,  to (3rlnk in all the glories of the surroundings landscape, but a cold penetrating: wind forbade more than a comparatively short stay. Having secured  a few photographs, and once again taking In the panorama which lay all  around us, we retraced pur steps, and  as quickly as possible descended this  highest slope. Striking the timber line  again, we sat around a friendly fire, and  enjoyed a lunch as,_ only mountaineers.  can enjoy it.   Here we rested and took  a few more photographs.  Then   occurred   the   most   exciting  part of the day's opting, when after the  initiation of the- lady In the oroner use  or mo -lpenswci*: mucn oi tne arscancr  was covered .by glissading down tne  snow. Wo ware reminded of the days  when tobogganing was in vogue as wo  stood up, and putting both feet together, were able to slide down the snow  slopes with much.-,rapldity. The sensation resembles'1 that of skiing on a  large scale.  Six o'clock found us again at the villa���������a little tired and footsore, but well  repaid by having experienced the delights of a climb In our Canadian Rockies. A plunge In the hot sulphur basin  soon made us forget that our muscles  had been a bit tired. Indeed, soma  members of the party were already  looking for moro fields to conquer. But  these we decided to leave until July 9th,  when many hope to toecom, "original  members" of the Canadian Alpine Club,  by graduating at the official climb of  "Tho Vlco-presldent," which Is to be  made at Its first summer camp, to be  held at tho summit of the Yollo Pass.  Magistrate Rules Thrt Patent Still It  Not Real Thing.  A long trial was held at a North London Police Court to decide what whisky is. A long array of Scottish and  Irish experts were examined and the  decision of Magistrate Fordham has  stirred especially the Scotch whisky  trade to its depths. Fordham decided  that while pot still whisky is really  whisky, the patent still spirit, of which  some blends are largely composed, is  not whisky. Fordham, in giving the results of his personal experiences as a  judicial whisky taster, said:  "I find that the medicinal properties  of patent still-whisky are not so great  as pot still, and they differ In contents,  flavor, and scents.  "Misrepresentation In the Irish and  Scotch whiskey trade has greatly increased during the last few years, so  much so that as shown in this case the  public gets the patent still spirit with  a dash of whisky thrown In to give it  the name.  "It is time this fraud upon the public  In the matter of whisky was stopped,  and no doubt, though this has been a  oostly prosecution was in every way  justifiable. Blenders have taken upon  themselves to issue to the public a new  raw patent still spirit with a dash of  the old pot still, and called It whisky  pot still. Distillers of the Highlands are  jubilant, but the Edinburgh blenders  are most indignant, arguing that it ia  Impossible that a stroke of a magistrate's pen should deprive of its name an  article which for sixty years has been  known as whisky."  One leading expert says it Is the most  momentous legal decision ever pronounced in connection with the whisky  trade and would strike at the most powerful branch of the industry and at  practically every one of the great distributing firms. The present output of  whisky in Scotland is about 26,000,000  gallons annually, and of that fully two-  thirds is represented by the product of  the patent still. There is, moreover,  120.000,000 gallons of whiskey in bond  in Scotland and nearly half that quantity, or 60,000,000,gallons, was made in  patent stills, and under the magisterial  decision had no right to be sold as  whisky.  The opinion generally Is expressed in  the trade that a new name will have  been found for whisky made in patent  stills, but there also is a feeling o. indignation at the condemnation of the  patent itself. Archibald Williamson,  -Mt���������Ptt~^has���������given���������notice���������of���������a���������^bilL-to-  amend the law relating to the sale of  ���������whisky and to provide for the marking  of casks and other vessels containing  whisky.  que cnaracier, ana it is to De flopeQ tna*  our soldiers and sailors will always regard as the most coveted distinction  that cheap-looking little bronza medal  ���������the Victoria Groan.

The next morning he read In his bill,  "To feeding and stabling, 80 shillings."  He asked the landlord for an explanation.  "The charge for 'osses Is 2 Bhlllln' a  'ead, sir," was the reply.

C.  Fifty years ago tho Victoria Cross  was instituted by Queen Victoria. A  little bronze cross, made out of cannon  taken at Sebastopol, intrinsically worth  4 l-2d., it is, nevertheless, the most  coveted of all decorations that a British  subject can wear. The reason for the  high value set upon it is to be found  In tho simple legend on Its face: "For  Valor." The cross, which ls awarded  to soldiers and sailors for valor in the  face of an enemy, has been won 522  times; and as it is awarded Impartially to officers and men, being thoroughly  democratic In Us regulations, the men  have won slightly more than tho officers.  It ls interesting to pick out the regt.  ments that have won the most V. C.'s.  At the head of the list-���������If we except  the Royal Artillery and Royal Engineers as being too large corps to be  counted as regiments���������are tho South  Wales Borderers, with sixteen to their  credit. They won the greater number  of them in Zululand, at Isandhlwana  and Rorke's Drift. The Rifio Brigade  is second on tho list, with flfteon, and  tho 9th Lancers, the King's Royal Rifles, and tho Gordon Highlanders come  next with thirteen each, and they are  followed by tho Cameronlans and th.  Black Wolch with ten each. The campaign which provided most V, C.'s was  the Indian Mutiny, In the ooui'su of  which 182 hero(_ won tho decorattoif,  the Russian War aocountod for 111, and  the lata war In South Africa for seventy-eight, the Zulu War for twenty-  three, the Afghan War (1878-89) for  sixteen; the New Zealand Campaign for  twelvo, and tho operations on the  Northwest Frontier of India (1897-8)  for ton. Thoso wars accounted for 432  crosses, and tho remaining ninety wore  distributed among tho many other campaigns In Africa, India, and elsewhere,  that have been fought during tho past  half century.  In a few rare instances the V. C. has  been won by more than one member of  a family. The most conspicuous case  Is that of the dough family, which can  boast of three V. Ci-Clon. Sir C.

Whitehead  It-looked very pleasant and homelike  in the studio when all was finished.  The girl, a brown eyed, slender creature, with masses of soft brown hair  around a small oval face, smiled contentedly as she surveyed the results of  three days' labor.  A few pretty rugs were scattered  over the floor. . Pictures in various  stages of completion leaned against the  wall, and on the hearth, a cozy wood  fire sparkled cheerily.  Beyond was a glimpse of a tiny bedroom and a kitchenette. Miss Vandervier drew a long breath. It was what  she had been dreaming of for years,  this return to New York to a studio of  her own. Now she could show what  the hard work in Paris had done for  her; now she could prove what was in  -er.  The Janitor, watching her with his  shrewd, kindly old Irish eyes, nodded  a silent approval.

But to Miss Vandervier, for  some reason, ho ".ouchsafed a peculiar  attention, studying her face whenever  unobserved with sharp intontdess, He  codded again.  "I hope you will find it agreeable,  miss," he onld ns ho gave tlie Are a  rattling poke. "Wo are rather a nice  lot," Judicially.  "Thank you," responded tho girl  gratefully. It wns a bit lonely���������this  much boasted Independence. "Are there  ���������are thoro many other girls here?"  Pat waved tho poker.  "Woll, thoro's Miss Delano," ho reflected aloud.

But, as for me, I likes  a bit of color moself," gating admiringly at a fragment of vivid blue Venetian water and sky. "But, sure, Mr.  Lawrence ain't troubling the paints  much these days," barking back to bis  subjoct with a sigh. "But, well, well,"  suddenly changing his tone, "I must be  going. Good evening, miss. And if  there's anything you want don't hesitate to call upon old Pat for It."  But tho girl had drawn near the door.

That in all the big city of  ^ew York she should have happened  upon the very building which sheltered  Bob! What could be more unfortunate? This had been the first thought  which leaped to her mind as the old  man chattered on, followed, however,  hy the consoling reminder that thev  need not therefore necessarily meet  And then, with a shock, the unexpectedness of which set her a-quiver, had  cqme the news of his illness and delirium. For a moment a cold finger  seemed laid upon her heart. Bob ill  and calling for another girl!  Yet why should she care? She did  not, she told herself, with a quick toss  of the head. She had taken that chance  when she sent him away. He had been  hers first, hers utterly. A sudden vision of those old Paris days rose before  her mind when Bob had begged her to  marry him and come home, and she,  trying her wings and rejoicing in their  strength, had only laughed. Give up  her work and go home? How could  he ask It?  But he had asked it and then gone  away, and now he was upstairs ill and  calling for another girl. Her mind reverted constantly to that thought.  Naturally she had told him to forget  her, but equally naturally, with the  fine self confidence of her sex, she had  never believed that he would. Reluctantly the truth now forced Itself  upon her consciousness that in all her  day dreams of winning fame the re-  turii_o������^ j oyXulJ^  ways been the climax.  With a determined effort Miss Vandervier flung herself into a chair and  tried to absorb herself In the cherished  studio, but to no avail. The thought of  that lonely, til figure upstairs persisted  to the exclusion of everything else. He  was ill,"very ill, and they were going  to take him away, and all be needed  was nursing. The girl caught unsteadily at the arras of the big chair  and half sprang to her feet. But that  other girl���������could she, oh, could she?"  And then, with a singularly sweet  and gentle expression. Miss Vaudervler  arose. What matter? If he were delirious he wopld never know, and at  least she might bo of sendee.  Perhaps It would be unfair to accuse  Pat of "snooping." Nothing might  havo been further from his thoughts;  but, bo the truth as it may, the Indisputable fact ls Unit, when a few minutes later the door of Miss Vandervier's  studio opened and a slender figure flitted up tbe stairs, Pat, unobserved In  the dark ball, uttered a smotborod  sound.  In breathless Interest be waited.  Then came to bim a light knock, a low  exclamation and then a feeble yet  thrilling joyful cry, "Miriam, oh, Miriam l"  Pat, his lids suddenly wet, emitted  a long, satisfied sigh,  "Miriam, is It?" bo muttered. "Miriam, aba!" wltb n sly twinkle, born of  bis knowledge of woman. "Maybo I'm  not much good nt names, but It's sure  tbe fine eyes I have for n likeness."  And, picking up tlie empty coal scuttle, be went on down tlio stairs.  THE FARMER'S HORSE.  Correspondent Advocates   Refusal   to  Sell Best Mare Colts If Canada  Would Be Famous.  Andrew McPherson, a Nova Scotia  correspondent pf the.London Farmer's  Advocate, has some words to say upon  horse raising and horse selling that  are applicable all over the country. He  says:  In briefly outlining our opinion on  the above subject, it becomes necessary to take a backward look, and see  whether, with the stallions in use during the past twenty years, we have  made any progress, or are just simply,  marking time. Twenty or twenty-five  years ago every farmer raised his own  horse, and besides, generally   had   a J  horse to sell every year. Previous to'  that date there was a very good, ser-|  viceable class of" Clydesdale stallions j  doing service In the Eastern part of j  Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.'  At the present time   those   stallions,  would be considered too light to meet i  the requirements of the trade. They'  would weigh from 1,400 to 1,600 pounds,  and were active, trappy-gaited fellows,  and, bred to the common mares of the  country, got colts that were eagerly i  picked up at remunerative prices by  NEEDED INSTRUCTIONS.  The Ark Dorn Man.  Hundreds of the ancient gleaners of  miscellaneous curios, legends, myths  and traditions give us to understand  tbat Cush wns born on tbo ark. Others  claim tbat tbere was a child born on  tbe sacred vessel, but that It was sacrificed to one of the wild beasts, Noah  declaring that no person should leave  tbe ark who hnd not gone on board In  tbo regulation manner. Tho weight of  tbe evidence as It Is given by the Talmud!, writers is to the effect that Cush  Is the person roforrod to by tho old  tlmo mystery gleaners when they  speak of the "ark born" man. Tbe sa-  crod booXtn nn woll ns the neoren of  Biblical encyclopedias, handbooks of  ancient history, etc., aro silent on the  subject In the "Snxon Chronicles" tlie  following occurs; "Bedwig was the son  of Shem, who wns the son of Noah, and  ht������ fKodwlcl wn*- IxtTTi on the firk."  Herbert's note In "Nlmrod," volume 'I.  page 37, says, "Kyltclc Is tbe ark, and  as Cush wns begotten In tho ark hit  posterity were lu a peculiar sense descended from that ship." Although  Herbert makes no direct reference to  the fact of Cunh Udng iicttiiillj- born In  the ark, he spenks of him In several  \dnec* an "Cu-di, tho ark tiorn." 'it.e  Tnlmudlc writers discredit the Bedwlg  story, but declare that Cush was bora  on tbe day that "God's covenant" (th#  rainbow) first appeared.  6HIRE  STALLION, PRESENT KING II.  19948.  Champion Stallion, London, Eng., Shire  Horse rihow. 1905. I  American buyers, and also made a'  splendid farm horse, were just what  was wanted for the plow, harrow or  mowing machine, and would carry a  large load to market, take the farmer,  and his family to church or to a picnic  at a fair rate of speed. |  Every   summer   American    buyers  came here and took away every sound  horse that could be spared   off   tlie  farm, and right here was where the  mistake was made���������selling   our   best  mares that should be kept for breeding  purposes. Instead of doing so, if those  .mares-were-kept-and-bred~to_the_Gly-_  desdale stallions that have come into  the country since, and their progeny  again bred to the stallions of the same  breed, that are being imported at the'  present time, then we should have a [  class of horses second to   none   on  earth. Colts that could   be   bitched  alongside their dams at 2 1-2 years of  age, and made to earn their own living  by doing the ordinary work   on the.  farm until ready for market.  Now, instead of having this style of  horse, what do we find? A mixture of  everything���������-Standard-bred, Thoroughbred, Hackney, English, French and  German Coach, CJydesdaIe,N Shfre and  Percheron, and a buyer would have to  travel the length and breadth of the  county, we might almost say Province,  before he could get a carload of any,  Let it not be understood that we  have any fault to find with any of the  above breeds. There are good horses  among-them all, and men have made  money out of all the different breeds,  but the average farmer wants to avoid  horses that need a professional trainer  to fit them for market. He wants, also,  to avoid fads, At the present time the  craze is for big, overgrown horses',  everything Is sacrificed for size. A  horse that weighs a ton, or thereabouts,  is now considered tho right thing to  breed to, just because thero is a limited demand in the big cities for such a  horse, and Ignoring an unlimited mar.  ket right at our door for a quick-moving, active draft or express horse that  will weigh from 1,200 to 1,400 pounds  ���������-heavy enough for all kinds of farm  work, and active enough to pull a loud  of produce to market at an eight-mile- >  an-hour gait, and would bring, when'  sold, from $150 to $175. To breed such  a horse, It Is not enough that the stallion we use should be a Clydesdale, although we are firmly convinced thnt  the Clydesdale is pro-omlnenUy ths  farmer's horse; still, not every stallion  of that breed will fill the bill. We want  to select him for his notion, quality of  bone and conformation, rather than for  his size; and, by refusing to sell our  best mare colts, wo could in a very  few years have a class of horses, farm  horses in particular, that would make  Canada famous, and be a   source  of  glensure and profit to tbe individual  reeder.

Sidebones are located at the quarters  near the heels, at the juncture of the  hair and hoof. They are due to t_e>  lateral cartilages (elastic plates) at  these parts changing to hone (ossifying). When present they may be detected as prominent, hard, bony masses protruding above the hoof at the  sides of the feet toward the heels and  bulging the hoof under the part involved.

'  Sidebones are common in draft  horses and constitute unsoundness.  Horses having very wide, flat, low  heeled hoofs are most subject to this  unsoundness. Stallions or mares afflicted with sidebones or ringbones  should not be used for breeding purposes unless the unsoundness is confined to a single foot and known to he  the result of a barb,wire cut or other  injury.���������Wisconsin Experiment '���������: Station.  Cure of Sidebones.  Well recommended means for tha  cure of sidebones are the free application of water, frequent soaking of the  feet and at a later period treatment  with iodine, either by painting the surface���������with��������� the���������tincture���������several���������times������������������  daily or by applying an ointment mado  by mixing one dram of 'the-.crystals  with two ounces of vaseline, rubbed  in once a day for several days.  A Way With Sweet Peas.  From a pile of evergreens, which had  been used as a winter covering for  hybrid remontant roses, large fiat  spreading branches were selected anil  tacked to the surface of the fence, covering it from the bottom to the top,  thus forming a capital support for tho  numerous tendrils of the clinging  vines.  Tho plants, which comprised several  varieties, climbed to the top of tho  branches. Blanche Ferry with the  others, though that variety is usually  set down as a dwarf, The fence was a  wall of bloom throughout the season  and was well decked with flowers  when cut down by frost in mid-October, By watchfully training the  side branches and bending down a  portion, of the plants tho bloom was  kept evenly distributed over the surface.

I  would not put hogs in a low headed  young orchard or In such an orchard  when tho fruit Is ripe, but among old,  high headod trees they do well, They  are the best stock I havo found for  such a farm as ours, since they practically caro for themsolves and save  labor by harvesting crops.���������A New Jersey Farmer.
