There is no torture moro acute and
intolerable Umn nervousness. A nervous person is in a state of constant
irritation by duy and sleeplessness
by 1:1 aht. Thu sufferer starts at'
e\i-ry noise, is shaky, depressed, and,
aiU'.oii:.'.h 111 u coiioiantly exhausted
state, is unable io sit or lie still. If
you are nervous or worried or sutler
from u combination of hingour and
imuition you nv\.d a nerve tonic,
and Dr. Willitvn-s' J'mlc Pills are absolutely the bust thing- in the world
for you. You can only get rid of
nervousness through feeding* your
nerves with rich, red blood, und Dr.
Williams' Pink Tills actually make
new blood. ' There is uo doubt about
this���thousands can testify to the
blood-making, uerve-r- storing qualities of these pills, ir-a. Vitus dance
is one of the most severe forms of
j nervousness, and Airs. 11. ITevenor, of
Graveuiiurst, Out., tells how the-10
pills cured her little boy.   Sho says:
"At the age of eight my little boy
was attacked with St. Vitus danco
from which he suffered in a severe
form. His nerves twitched to such an
extent'that he was almost helpless,
and had to bo constantly watched.
He was under several doctors at different times, but they did not help
him, so I decided to try Dr. Wil-
Hams' Tink Tills, and these have i
completely cured him, and now not !
a sign of the trouble remains." j
When you buy tneso pills always
look at the box nnd see that the full '
name, Dr. Williams' Tink Tills for '
Pale People is printed on the wrap- 1
per, and refuse to take anything el::-e. ���
You can get these pills from all 1
medicine dealers or Ihey will be sent '
by mail at 50 cents: a box, or six '
boxes for $2.50��.by writing The Dr. |

He looked up -amusedly'as she gathered herself from his .saving embrace  and the total wreck of his paper; then  he arose hastily.  '���������Take my seat," he said courteously,  ���������with hat alift and the faintest twinkle '  in his eyes.   "You will find It more j  comfortable-lf I don't."  The ambiguous* words sounded un- ;  gracious to the girl's first confused  thought, and s ��������� hesitated. Rut one (  glance into the frankly admiring,eyes j  and another repair serpentine decided {  her. She sank with more haste" than j  grace into the proffered seat, while her  preserver stooped to recover her j  dropped purse, handkerchief and other I  scattered properties. i  She rewarded him with smiling ,  thanks, then turned her anxious atten- !  tion to the moving "panorama of rain |  deluged streets outside. The problem ,j  in economics as to how she should j  reach her home, two" long cross town '.  blocks from the car line, innocent as |  she was of umbrella or rubbers, began  to absorb her mind.  She only vouchsafed one brilliant,  perplexed glance upward at the fellow  passenger who for her sweet sake was  (submitting himself to the modern inquisition of "hanging by a strap till  dead."  But in"that instant of wireless telegraphy he perceived her thought and  resolved accordingly. So he rode on  past his club block after block till his  fair vis-a-vis, having made up her  mind to run if not for her own life for  that of her new lace hat, signaled thu  conductor and got off the car.  Grasping the> voluminous fluffery of  her silken skirts in both hands, she  poised for flight, when a deep voice ad-  -dressed-her-in-an-extreniely-respeetfuL  tone:'.'.--' : '���������"   ���������  "We seem to be going the same way,  and you have no umbrella. Won't you  ���������hare mine?".  Fragments of Maria's elder sisterly  counsels regarding strict propriely  floated through her mind as she hesitated. But the man was evidently a,  gentleman,' aud besides there was the  pouring rain, and her new hat would  be ruined, not to mention this her very  first long gown.  She put her little hand on his offered  arm as trustingly ns tbe child she was,  and tbey set forth.  In that short walk he made himself  deferentially agreeable, and she, who  had been shut In from all contaminating malo, society by a careful sister of  forty, her only guardian, entered ifito  this highly improper escapade with all  tho guilty joy of a young filly just broken out of Its stall into forbidden pas-  ire '^3t^^"������-'-3*tffc  She waB bo naive, yet daringly winsome, her soft, long lashed gray eyes  were go jh^ijocentj yet so mischievous,  that it was small wonder thut stnld  .

"Not till you toll me whon I mny see  you again. I must.

That wealthy gcntlenmn hud luld  the foundation of his millions by walking to snro car fart������ nnd nddod to them  by underpaying nnd overworking all  the men in his employ.  E. . tonight his secretary slipped out  and away from the usual hour's work j  overtime and hurried to his club, where \  he spent fifteen hasty minutes at his j  dinner and an hour and three-quai-i^rs t  at his toilet.  Appareled  at last to suit his  fastidious taste-, he sallied forth to a Mr 1-  ison avenue car.   Arriving at the house  whose fair dweller had haunted his i  dreams, he rang the bell and waited,!  with his heart thumping.so loud under j  his stiff drpss shirt that he wondered ;  if she could hour it hi that second floor  front room she had told, him was hers j  and which he had watched every evening for a week in hope of seeing even  her shadow.  The door was opened by a trln. maid.  "Is���������is Miss Anoline Dwight at!  hoineV" he stammered in his excite- j  nient, fumbling iu his cardcase. I  The maid stared and then giggled, j  but in a moment straightened her de- j  pertinent to its usual dignity. j  "Yes, sir: I guess she's downstairs." I  she remarked; then glancing doubt- I  fully at the bit of pnstboard, .."Shall 1 I  take, this to 'er'.'" And the giggle i  threatened to break,bounds-again. j  "Certainly," responded Mr. Bewley |  in his most lofty manner, though he j  reddened visibly. What the deuce ailed  the girl7 ho wondered. Probably Miss j  Dwlght was tit dinner. He hoped he j  had not come too early. He anxious- ������  ly consulted his watch. Nine o'clock j  was not so late. A burst of laughter j  from below, whither" the servant had '  repaired, startled bis.-embarrassment ;  anew, and the words "Plug hat, too,"  floated up to him..  When she came'back she was at no  pains to conceal n**er mirth. "Jos' s*ep  this way, sir," she giggled. And he  followed her, much perturbed, to the  basement.  "Gen'l'man to see Miss Dwlght," she  announced loudly, opening the kitchen  door with a flourish nnd abruptly withdrew to a back room, whence muffled  explosions of mirth issued at intervals.  "Yo* wan' see me, suh ?" A huge  black bulk in turban, and white apron  waddled toward hitn. "I's Miss Aner-  line Dwlght���������de cook ob dis yer 'stab-  lishment."/  On confronting the iS African apparition Mr. Bewley stared; opened his  mouth to speak, then fled. When he  emerged, wrathful, wretched, disappointed and humiliated, he went back  W the club~an^"^ra^iffls5rrtirtllt  unpleasant names lie could think of.  He arose next morning with the lark  ���������or what corresponds to it in the city,  the milk wagons���������and delighted his  employer by being first at the office;  also for several mornings thereafter.  But, a reward other than official approval���������cold comfort though it was���������  awaited -him a few days later, in the  form of a dainty blue note sealed with  white wax. It was from Sister Maria,  as follows:  My Dear Mr. Bewley���������Through a chance  remark of one of tho servants today I was  led to question my slstt-r Nell concerning  & hoax she very unjustly played upon you  the other evening.

THE COURIER  OF THE CZAR  ~J&  CHAPTER VI.  iN the afternoon of tho. 2nd  of July Michael Strogofl  nnd Nadia were not im>i**"  than thirty versts from  Ichim. Suddenly,Michael  caught sight of a carriage, scarcely visible  among the clouds of dust, preceding  them along the road. As his ���������horses  were evidently-less fatigued than those  of the other traveler, he would not. biking in overtaking it. This was neither  a tarantass nor a telga, but a post ber-  lin, all over dust and looking as if it  had made a long journey. The postilion was thrashing his horses with all  his might and only kept.them at a  gallop by dint of abuse aud blows. The  berlin had certainly-not passed through  Novo-Saimsk and could only have  struck the Irkutsk road by some less  frequented route across the steppe.  Michael's first thought on seeing this  berlin was to get in front of it and arrive first at the relay, so as to make  sure of fresh horses. He said a word  to his driver, who soon brought bim up  With the berlin.  As he passed a head was thrust put  of the window of the berlin.  He bad no time to see what It was  like, but as be dashed by be distinctly  beard this word uttered in an imperious tone:  "Stop!"  But he did not stop. On tbe contrary.  the berlin was soon distanced by the  tarantass.  It now became a regular race, for the  horses of the berlin, no doubt excited  by the sight and pace of the others, recovered their strength and kept up for  some minutes. Tbe two carriages were  hidden in a cloud of dust. From this  ^lolTd~lsTue"d���������th-e^cTSclilHI-b"f'  ~w  mingled with excited shouts and exclamations of anger.  Nevwtheless the advantage remained  with Michael, which might be very important to him if tbe relay were poorly  provided with horses. Two carriages  were perhaps more than the postmaster  could provide for, at least In a short  ���������pace of time.  Half an hour after the berlin was left  far behind, looking only a speck on the  horizon on the steppe.  It was 8 o'clock in the evening when  Michael and bis companion arrived at  tbe posthouse In Ichim.  The news was worse and worse with  regard to the Invasion.  Here bad arrived just a short time  before two men.  Th������ one was English, the other  French. Both were tall and thin, but  the latter was sallow, as are the southern provencals, while tbo former was  ruddy like a Lancashire gentleman  Tho Anglo-Norman, formal, cold, grave,  parsimonious of gestures and words,  appearing only to speak or gesticulate  under tbe Influence of a spring operating at regular Intervals. The Gaul, on  the contrary, was lively and petulant  expressed himself with lips, eyes,  hands, all at once, having twenty different ways of explaining his thoughts,  whereas bis Interlocutor seemed to  have only ono Immutably stereotyped  on his brain.  The strong contrast thoy presented  would at onco havo struck the most  superficial observer, but a physiognomist, regarding them moro closely  would have defined their particular  characteristics by saying that if the  Frenchman was "all eyes," tho Englishman was "all oars."  In fact, the visual apparatus of the  one had boon singularly perfected by  practice. Tho sensibility of Its retina  must haro been as lijslntifnnoous as  that of thoso conjurers who recognize  ������ card merely by a rapid movement In  cutting the pack or by tho arrangement  only of marks invlslblo to others. The  Frenchman, indeed, pusse-Mi-d tu the  highest degree what may be called "the  memory of tbe eye."  Tbo Englishman, en the contrary, appeared especially organized to listen  and to hear. Whou his aural apparatus bad been onco struck by the sound  of a voice, tie could not forget It, and  after uu or uvuii twenty year* he  would havo recognized it among a  thousand. Ills cars, to be sure, had  not tho power of moving as freely as  thoso of animals who are provided with  largo auditory ttnpa; but, slnco scientific men know that human cars possess, In fact, a very limited power of  movement, we should not bo far wrong  in affirming that those of the said  Englishman became erect and turned  in all directions while endeavoring to  gather In the sounds In a manner np-  parent only iu (la- nu i u nil it* t. it uniM  be observed that this perfection of  sight and hearing was of wonderful  assistance to thette two men In their  ���������rotation, for the Englishman acted ai  correspondent for The Daily Telegraph  and the Frenchman' as correspondent  of the���������of what newspaper or of what  newspapers he did not say, and when,  asked he replied in a jocular manner  that ho corresponded with "his cousin  Madeleine." This Frenchman, however,  beneath his careless surface was wonderfully shrewd aud sagacious. Even  while speaking at random, perhaps the  better to hide his desire to learn, he  never forgot himself. His loquacity  even helped him to conceal his thoughts,  and he was perhaps even more discreet  than his confrere of The Daily Telegraph.  It is needless to say that these two  men were devoted to their mission in  the world���������that they delighted to throw  themselves in the track.of the most unexpected intelligence; that nothing terrified or discouraged them from succeeding; that they possessed the imperturbable sang froid and the genuine  intrepidity of men of their calling. Enthusiastic jockeys in this steeplechase,  this hunt after Information, they leaped hedges, crossed rivers, sprang over  fences with the ardor of pure blooded  racers who will run "a good first" or  die.  Their journals did not restrict them  with regard to-money, the surest, the  most rapid, the most perfect element  of information known to this day. It  must also be added, to their honor, that  neither the onenor the other ever looked or listened at the walls of private  ..life and that they only exercised their  vocation when political or social interests were at stake. In a word, they  made what has been for some years  called "the great political and military  reports." '  It will be seen in following them that  lhey__had_generallyV_anjridependent.  mode of viewing events and, above all,  their consequences, each having his  own way of observing and appreciating. The object to be obtained beiug  of adequate value, they never failed to  expend the money required.  The French correspondent was named Alcide Jolivet. Harry Blount was  the name of the Englishman. The dissimilarity of their characters/added to  a certain amount of jealousy, which  generally exists between rivals in the  same calling, might have rendered  them but little sympathetic. However,  they did not avoid one another, but endeavored rather to exchange with each  other the news of the day., They were  two sportsmen, after all, hunting ou  the same grounds, In the same preserve. That which one missed might  be advantageously secured by the other, and It was to thoir Interest to meet  and converse together.  From these two correspondents Michael learned that the town Itself was  menaced by tbe Tartar vanguard, and  two days before the authorities had  boon obliged to retreat to Tobolsk.  There was not an officer nor a soldier  left In Ichim.  On arriving at the relay Michael Strogoff Immediately asked for horses.  lie had been fortunate in distancing  thu berlin.  Ouly throe horses were In a lit state  to be Immediately harnessed, The others had Just come lu worn out from a  long stage.  The postmaster gave tho order to  put to.  As the two pom*spni*idont.q Intended  to stop at ichim, they had in.t to troublo Uieiut-elves to liinl men us of trniix-  port and therefore hnd their carriage  put away.  In ten minutes Mlchnol was told thnt  his tarantiiHS was ready to start.  "Good," said lie.  Then, turning to tho two reporters,  ho said:  '"Well, gentlemen, slnco you remain  at Ichlin, I wish you success in tho  prosecution of your mission,"  "What, Mr. Korpnneff," said Alcldc  Jollvot, "shall you not stop oven for an  hour at Ichim?"  "No, sir, nnd I also wish to leave tho  prmthouse before the arrival of a berlin  which I distanced."  ' Ai* iuo ui'iuid that the traveler wii)  dispute tbe hom-a with you''"  "I particularly wish to avoid any dlf-  "ltls possible that wo shall meet you  again in a few days at Omsk," added  Tikn-i-r.  "It is possible," answered Michael,  "since I am going straight there."  "Well, I wish yon a safe journey, Mr,  Korpanoff,'1 said Alcide.  Almost Immediately tbo sound of a  carriage was heard outside, the doot  was tlung open and a man appeared.  It wn* the traveler of tbe berlin, a  military looking man, apparently about  forty years of age, tali, robust in fig*  ure, broad shouldered, with a strongly  act bead and thick mustache meeting  red whiskers.   He wore a olaln uni  form. A cavalry saber hung iu Inside, and in his hand he held a shui:  handled whip.  "Horses," he demanded, with the ai;  of a man accustomed to command.  "I have no more disposable horses."  answered the postmaster, bowing.  '"I must have some this moment."  "It is impossible."  "What are those horses which have  just beeu harnessed to the tarantass 1 -  saw at the door?"  "They belong to this traveler," answered the postmaster, pointing to Michael Strogoff.  '"Take them out!" said the traveler  in a1 tone which admitted of no reply.  Michael then advanced.  "These horses are engaged by me,"  ho said.  "What does that matter? I must  have them. Come, be quick; I, have no  time, to lose."  "1 have uo time to lose either," replied Michael, endeavoring to be calm,  but restraining himself with difficulty.  'Nadia. was near him, calm also. b*i\  secretly uueasy at a scene which it  would have been better to avoid.  "Enough!" said the traveler.  Then, going up to the postmaster:  "Let the horses be taken put of the  tarantass and put into my berlin," he  exclaimed, with a threatening gesture.  The postmaster, much embarrassed,  did not know whom to obey'aud looked  at Michael, who evidently had the right  .to resist the unjust demands of the  traveler.  Michael hesitated an instant He did  not wish to make use of his podorojna,  i which would havo drawn attention to  j him, and he was'most unwilling either'  by, giving up his horses to delay his  journey, a:ul yet it was Important uot  to engage :h a struggle which might  compromise his mission. ,  The two reporters looked at him,  ready to support him should he appeal  to them.  "My horses will remain in "my carriage," said Michael, but without raising his tone more than would be suitable for a plain Irkutsk merchant.  The traveler advanced toward Michael and laid his hand heavily on his  shoulder.  "Is it so?" he said in a rough voice.  "You will not give up your horses to  me?"  "No,'- answered Michael.  "Very well, then they shall belong to  whichever of us is^ableto start. De  fendV yourserf,~lfor~I"sBall not spaW  you!" .-   .    " ,.  So saying the traveler drew his saber  from its sheath, and Nadia threw herself before Michael.  Blount and Alcide Jolivet advanced  toward him.  "I shall not fight," said Michael quietly, folding his arms across his chest.  "You will not fight?"  "No."  "Not even after this?" exclaimed the  traveler, and before any one could pre-  veut him he struck Michael's shoulder  with the handle of the whip. At this  Insult Michael turned deadly pale. His  bauds moved convulsively, as if he  would have knocked the brute down.  But by a tremendous effort he mastered himself. A duel! It was more than  a delay; It was perhaps the failure of  his mission. It would be better to  lose some hours. Yes, but to swallow  this affront 1  "Will you fight now, coward?" repeated tho traveler, adding coarseness  to brutality,  "No," answered Michael, without  moving, but looking tbo other straight  In the face.  "The horses this moment," said tbe  man and left tho room. The postmaster followed him.  The effect produced on the reporters  by this Incident was not to Michael's  advantage. Their discomfiture was visible   How could this strong young  man allow himself to bo struck like  that and not demand satisfaction for  | such nn Insult?  They contented themselves with bowing to bim and retired.  j    A  moment afterward tlio uolso of  ' wheels und the cracking of n  whip  whuwnl that tlie berlin. druwu by the  turn in i> nm' Iioi'ki'h. was driving rapidly  awny I'n.tn the jiosthoupc.  .

And at the same time ber band with  an almost maternal gesture wiped away  a tear which sprung to ber compan-  l-in'q evp-i.  CHAPTER VII.  NADIA, with the detr po*  ccptlon of a right minded woman, guessed that  some secret motive directed all Michael 8tro-  goff's actions; that he for  a reason unknown to her  did not belong to himself; that be bad  not the power of doing what be do-  fired, and tbat to this Instance especial  ly he had he.oically. sacr-'fes-i to d*-ily  even hia rui't-atment at the gross in! iu-.v  he had received.  Nadia, therefore, asked .io exp^-ia  tion from Michael.   Ha a not, the hand  which she had extended To bin) a lv������*a ���������.'���������**  replied to all that he migbt liave bben  abie to jell her?  Michael remained silent all the even  Ing. The postmaster not being ahlt to  supply them with fresh horses until  the next morning-, a whole night must  be passed at the house. Nadia cwiild  profitby it to take some rest, ami a  room was therefore prepared for her.  The young girl would no doubt nave  preferred not to leave her companion,  but Bhe felt that be would ra'ii>.*r be  alouo, and she made ready to go to her  room.  J ust as she was about to retire she  could not refrain from going up to Ml  chaei to say good night.  "Brother," she whispered.  But he checked her with a gesture.,  The girl sighed and left tho room.  Michael Strogoff did not lie down.  He could uot have slept even for an  hour. The place on which he bad been  struck by the brutal traveler felt like  a burnl  "For my country and the Father," he  muttered as he ended his evening prayer.  He especially felt a great wish to  know who was the man who bad  struck,him, whence he came and where  he was going. As to his face, the features of it were so deeply engraved on  his memory that he had no fear of  ever forgetting them.  Michael at last asked for the postmaster. The latter, a Siberian of the  old type, came directly and, looking  rather contemptuously at the young  man, waited to be.questioned.  "You belong to the country?" asked  Michael.  "Yes."  "Do you know that man who took  my horses?"  "No."  "Had you never seen him before?"  "Never."  "Who do you think he was?"  "A man who knows how to make  himself obeyed."  Michael fixed his piercing gaze upon  the Siberian, but the other did not  quail before it  "Do you dare to judge me?" exclaimed Michael.  "Yes," answered the Siberian, "for  -there-aresome-things-that-even-a-plaln-  merchant cannot receive without returning."  "Blows?"  "Blows, young man. I am of an age  and strength to tell you so."  Michael went up, to the postmaster  and laid his two powerful hands on his  shoulders.  Then in a peculiarly calm tone he  said:  "Be off, my friend; be off I I could  kill you."  The postmaster understood this time.  "I like him better for that," he muttered as he retired without adding another word.  At 8 o'clock the next morning, the  24t.h of July, threo strong horses were  harnessed to the tarantass. Michael  and Nadia took their places, and Ichim,  with its disagreeable remembrances,  was soon left far behind.  The next day, July 25, at 3 o'clock In  the morning, the tarantass arrived at  the posthouse In Tloukalmsk, having  accomplished a distance of 120 versts  Bince it had crossed the Ichim.  They rapidly changed horses. Here,  however, for tlio first time the driver  made difficulties about starting, declaring tbat detachments of Tartars were  roving across tie steppe and that travelers, horses nrid carriages would be a  fine prize for such robbers.  Only by dint of a largo bribe could  Michael got ovor tho unwillingness of  the driver, for in this Instance, as in  many others, he did not wish to show  his podorojna. Tbe hist ukase, having  boon transmitted by telegraph, was  known In tho Siberian provinces, and a  Russian specially exempted from obeying thuHP orders would certainly liavo  drawn public attention to himself, a  thing above all to bo nvotded by tho  cznr's courlor. As to tho driver's hesitation, either tho rascal traded on tbe  traveler's Impntloneo or he really bad  good reason to fear some misfortune,  Howovor, nt last tho taruntnss started and made such good way that by 3  In tlio afternoon It hnd reached Kou-  IntHlnsltoe, eighty versts farther on.  An hour after this It was on tho banks  of tlio Irtish. Omsk was now only  twenty versts distant  The Irtish Is a large rlvpr and ono of  the principal of thouo which flow toward the north of Asia. Ulslng in tho  Atal mountain, It ficavu Umu IU  southeast to tbo northwest nnfl empties Itself Into the Obi after a course of  nearly 7,000 versts.  At this time of year, when all tbe  rivers of the Siberian basin are much  swollen, tbo waters of thu Irtish wci-j  tery bigb. Io couscquence tbe curront  was changed to a regular torrent, rendering tbe passage difficult enough. A  swimmer could not hove crossed, bow-  ever powerful ft one ho might be, and  ���������feo In ft ferryboat tbere would be  tome daoger,  Rut Michael and Nadla, determined  to bmrtftll perils whatever they might  be, did o*t dream of shrinking from  this one.  H&wever, Michael proposed to bis  fount companion tbat be should cross  first, embarking in the ferryboat with  the tarantass and horses, as he feared  that the weight of this load would render it less safe. Aftm- landing the carriage on the opposite bank he would  return and fetch NaCia.  xhe girl refused.- It would be the  rtc-iay of an hour, and she would not  rov her safety alone ")e the cause of it  The embarkation was made not with- ���������  out difficulty, for tha :?anks were partly  ���������looded and the boat could not rot in  near enough.  However, after half an hour's ���������*���������*<*���������*������������������  rJon tbe boatmen not the tarantass und  Mu������ three horses on board.    Michael,  Nsuiia and the driver embarked; ais-o-,'-..  a hd they shoved off.  l<"m- a few minutes all went well. A  'ittie way up the river the current was  broken by a long point projecting from  the bauk and formed an eddy easily  nrossed by the boat. The two boatmen  propelled their barge with long .notes,  which thoy handled cleverly, but as  tucy gained the middle of the stream  it grew deeper aud deeper uot.U at last  ���������tuey could only just reach tlie bottom.  The cuds of the poles were only a foot  above the water, which rendered their  use difficult and 'insufficient Michael  and Nadia, seated in the stern of the  boat aud always iu dread of ft delay,  watched the boatmen with some uneasiness. ���������    ,. *  "Look out!" cried one of tXic.nl to his  comrade.  The shout Was occasioned by the new  direction the boat .was rapidly taking.  it had got into the direct current and  was being swept down the river. By  diligent use of the poles, putting the  ends in a series of notches cut below  the gunwale, the boatmen o*anaged to  keep their craft against the stream and  slowly urged it in a slanting direction  toward the right bank.  They calculated on reaching it some  five or six versts below tbe landing  place; but, after all, that would not  matter so long as men and beasts could  disembark without accident. The two  stout boatmen, stimulated, moreover,  by the promise of double fare, did not  doubt of succeeding in this difficult  passage of the Irtish.  But they reckoned without an incident which they were powerless to prevent and neither their -seal nor their  skillfulness could under the circumstances have done more. V  The boat was in the middle of the  current at nearly ���������equal distances from  .eitber-shoreiaud-being-car-r.ied-down-at-  the rateof two versts an hWir when-  Michael, springing to bis feet, bent his  gaze up the river.  Several boats, aided by oars as well  as by the current, were coming swiftly  down upon them.  Michael's brow contracted, and an exclamation escaped him.  "What Is the matter?" asked the girl.  But before Michael had tlmeto reply  one of the boatmen exclaimed In an accent of terror: ���������  "The Tartars I  The Tartars!"  They were Indeed boats full of sol-,  diers, and In a few minutes they must'  reach the ferryboat, It: being too heavily laden to escape from them.  The terrified boatmen uttered excla-  mjitjons of despair and dropped their  poles.  "Courage, my friends!" cried Michael.  "Courage! Fifty rubles for you if we  reach tho right bank boforo tho boats  overtake us!"  Incited by theso words, tho boatmen  again worked manfully away, but It  soon became evident tbat they could  uot escape tho Tartars.  It was scarcely-probable tbat thejr  would pass without attacking tbemt  On the contrary, thero was everything  to be feared from robbers such as  these.  "Do not be afraid, Nndla," said Ml*-  chaol, "but bo ready for anything."     i  "I nm ready," replied Nadia.        "V  "Even to throw yourself Into tho w������>  tor whon I toll you?"  "Whenever you tell me,"  "Have coulldetico lu me, Kadla,"  "I hnvo Imleuii."  Tho Tartar boats wero now only ���������  hundred foot distant, Thoy carried a  dotachment of Bokhnrlan soldiers on  their wny to rocoimoltei* round Omsk.  Tho ferryboat wns still two lengths  from tho shoro. The boatmen redoubled thoir offorts. Michael himself hpIjs.  ed a pole and wielded It with suporhu*  rnnn strength. If ho could land tho  tarnntiiHs and horses nnd dash off wltb  thorn, thero was samo clinueo of escaping tho Tartars, who were not mounted.  But nil their efforts woro In vain,  Tho soldiers from the first boat shouted.  Michael recognised tho Tartar war-  cry, which Is usually answered by lying  fiat on tho ground.  As uoiilier he nor tbe bontmon obeyed  this injunction, a volley was lot fiy  among tbcm, and two of tbe horses  were mortally wounded.

A large nnd'influential, meeting  w.-is he-lil.in Victoria lately todv-cuss  tlie erection of a sanitarium' in the  Kamlobps"district for the treatment  of persons suffering froai consumption. It reemi" to be a most la-ud-  able undertaking aiwl^me in which  the-jtaople .of thje^distiict should  n** it** by subscribing to the, iund.  The public ia asked to subscribe  one dollar per year for fen years  which with aid from the Dominion  and Provincial governments will  e.'.uble a suitable structure with  skilled attendants to be supported,  and a great threatened or actual  calamity averted. The disease,  which is most insidious in its onset  and often relentles-s in its course,  and which may be largely prevented, is one about which we -jannot  be indifferent and should not. long  er be inactive. To health boards,  either national or  local,  must be  largely intrusted the primai'y ��������������������������� .protection'of the people against the  danger. Whi'e con?unvt>ti -n thus:  logically'be clashed' with diptheria  and scarlatina iind sniuir pox as a  communicable germ'- iii?' a^, it" is.  in fact, in the'light of;. our presen;  knowledge,when intelligently cared for, so little'liable to spread that  it is properly exempt from some of  those summary roe's bu res which  healvh authorities are ������������������justified in  adopting with the more readily and  less avoidably communicable nui-  ladies. But while extreme mfivs-  urea are not called for, local health  boards must soon act in the prevention of tuberculosis. Unquestionably ono of .,the urgent duties  ���������immediately before m in all parts  of tho land where consumption prevails is,the establishment of a sani-  tr.rium or special hospitals in which  this diseaee can be treated und its  victims safely eared fojj. And so  to-day the outlook for those in .tho  earlier stages of this disease is in a  considerable proportion of cases ox  tremely encouraging. Tho great  and beneficent work which has  been accomplished by Trudenu in  tbe Adirondack woods, in at onco  widening iho bnumls of knowledge  of tuberculosis and in carrying to u  successful ihhuo in so many tho  varied and delicate procoenoe of oure  is a cheering exnmple of what may  be accomplished wiih pwii-tent devotion, by the light of our new  kno'vbdge, in niiu-tciiiij' a malady  so' long i'onyidort'il hopulwss  Prohibiting ("pitting in public reports, halle, atrof ti", stores, churehes,  etc., U the fiihl sioji in the right ili-  ynf.f'nw   r. ,��������� fl   I (-,������������ ]<\\V  hi   tblfl     rAWIV'f't,  it'i]] Uyl !'- '-(,��������� '!:���������!'!';' I'M'i'rrc:!,  The BC.
