A   NARROW IgSCAPE  What came within an ace^f ������eri-  ously injuring, if not causing the  deaths of Messrs T  Whyte and C.  McDonald with their hort<e and rig,  WuS the result of gross carelesaiioss  on the part of road men in charge  of the work of building the Oyster  River bridge last Saturday   ni������ht.  The two gentlemen named, started  from here late at night to drive  to  the river where their  families were  camped.   They arrived at the bridge  about 4 o'clock Sunday morning  and started across.   When near the  farther end their horse sbyed at a  pile driver hammer which had been  ieft on the bridge and tha railing  having been removed from this part  the hind wheel ran over the side before the had time to  jump,   which  act they performed with difficulty'  the whole wagon then being over,and  prevented from tailing to the rocks  below only by tbe step catching on  the step catching on the side of the  planking, tbe horse standing trembling on the edge.   The harness was  quickly cut and the animal led out  of danger.     After  this the wagon  was raised with difficulty   by  the  Tidl)f"thenr5a3"prTyWho were rous-  ed out of camp,   Besides the hammer being on the bridge, which   in  itself would  alarm  any   passing  horse, there  was  no  night light,  bar or other signal placed to warn  the public against danger, and as  the drop at this point is 12 or 16 ft.  there is no doubt, had the  step of  the wagon not held, the consequen-  ces would have been Berious.

LIAMS'  PINK  PILLS.  Mr, Edward Martel, 9S St. Peter  street, Quebec, is one of the thousands  ������/-working men throughout Canada  who cheerfully admit that they are  kept In health and strength through  the use of Dr. Williams Pink Pills.  To a reporter who Interviewed him,  Mr. Martel said:���������"The present con-  dltlon of my health contrasts strikingly with what it was nine months  ago. Then I felt that I was almost  at death's door, while ' now I am  strong and well. This happy change  is entirely due to Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. I am a workingman, and it is  tie wonder that after years of diligent  toll my system'' was gradually run  down. My blood got as thin as water,  and I grew so poorly that the least exertion would leave me weak and trembling. I consulted a doctor, who said  that I was run down through hard  ���������work, but his medicine did not help  me any. A few weeks later I was  forced to quit work, and shortly after  that had to remain in bed most of the  time. One day a fellow workman  called to see me, and induced me to  try Dr. Williams' < Pink Pills. Before  the second box was finished I had a  better appetite and relished my meals,  and with thjs came new strength. In  a few weeks I was'able to go out again,  and in about six weeks from the time  2 began using the pills I was able to  return to work, my health completely restored and my strength as vigorous as ever it had been. I attribute  my complete, recovery entirely to Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, and I think every hard workng man would be better  for using a box, of these pills occasionally.  Mr. Martel's advice should be taken  by every workingman. The only way  to have health and strength is to keep  the blood rich and pure, and the only  ���������way to get rich, strength producing  blood is through the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,0 because they actually make new blood. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills make tired, worn out men  and women vigorous and strong.

Tbe music was ob- i  talned from a huge drumlike instru- j  ment four or five feet long and a foot j  in diameter, covered at either end by a |  tightly stretched sheepskin.  This was ;  held between, the legs of the largest;  and  oldest  slave  in the community. ���������  This drum he would beat with palm j  and fingers, and all the time he sang a i  wordless  song,  which  as the excitement increased would become wild and  weird and was accompanied by mus- j  cular contortions, wagging and' twist-!  ing of the bead and rolling of tbe eyes.!  One after another of the slaves would \  join In the dance as the spirit moved;  him or her to do so till the musician ;  was surrounded by a ring of black and  yellow twisting, wriggling, hysterical;  negroes, who for the. time were thou-1  .sands of miles away in the heart of  superstitious Africa.  One by one they  would fall to the ground exhausted,  when their places.would be taken by  others who were just beginning to feel ]  the moving of tho spirit.   It was not  unusual for this wild dance to continue !  through two days. j  THE PECULIAR LOON.  Se-reral Trne Bills. I  It is of course true.that a jury, theo-:  retically, is composed of a set of un-!  prejudiced men, with open minds; still \  there may be occasions when a slight j  personal feeling invades their ranks.!  Such was evidently the thought borne ;  in upon the tailor who, rising to state ;  his case and having declined the serv-:  Ices of a lawyer for reasons best known  to himself, looked ovpr the jurymen  and then turned to the judge.  "It's.no.use for me to tell you about  this case, your honor," he said dejectedly,' "not unless you dismiss tbat jury  and get in a new lot. There isn't a man  among 'em but owes me something for  clothes." I  The Dutch Easter Time Festival* IB  the Mohawk Valley-.  Next to New Year's day -Paus and  Pinkster were the more popular, and  generally observed .holidays*,&f the,,o?d  ���������Dutch in the Mohawk valley.   Paus  ���������was Easter and Pinkster was Whit-  eunday. . Pinkster was particularly a  gala day, when young and old gave  themselves up to Jollity and boisterous  furi.  The joys of the day began lu the  morning with sports, outdoor games  and contests and ended late at night  ���������with indoor games and dancing. There  .wen** "egg butting" aud "riding at tlie  lflng."   Tho latter sport was probably  a rural adaptation of the tournaments  ������f the days of chivalry.   The necessary  arrangement was  a  cord  tied  across the fond just above tbe heads of  men on horseback.  From this cord was  irasponded by a short string a finger  ring.    Each horseman was provided  with a sb'pi't, g'jiorp pointed stick about  ���������iho sizo of a meatUkowor, which was  Jiold   between   the   first   finger  and  ttramb.   Tho competitors woro obliged  to rldo at full gallop under tho cord  nnd attempt,to thrust their "lances"  through tbe ring ami carry it off three  times.    When ono of tlio contestants  had accomplished this lie was chased by  all tho other contestants.   If ho succeeded In reaching tho goal without bolng caught he was tho winner.   The  prize was tin? payment by the other  contestants of the bill for himself and  Ills host girl nt tho iliiuco mid supper to  bo Kivi*n In tho evening.

In thoso  tiootlw thu tables wero set with good  things to out; i\ud drink.   Besides tho  "em butting" nnd "riding at tho ring,"  micro were  impromptu  horse  races,,  wrestling   niutelJeu    and    occasional  "-acrapu." Tho music for dancing was  provided by tbo fiddle and Jowslmrp.  I'inltKtur wars a great occasion for tha  slave*.

During an official, massacre at the  village of Kouklish the Turkish commandant���������a fat major���������slept and smoked in the shade of a tree near the scene  of carnage. The trumpet sounded for  the assault, and the soldiers proceeded  to rob, kill, burn and violate. The  trumpet nest sounded the retreat, but  -the-troop-refused-to~obey,_and_the_fat,  major continued to sleep and smoke.  When spoken to about the excesses of  his men, he replied: "What can one  do?   They are so badly brought up!"  Novel Oyster Parties.  .-Oyster parties are the great diversion  of the Spanish gentlemen who pay  family visits to Vigo. The party goes  out In a large flat bottomed boat. Then  the oysters are fished up, opened and  eaten on the spot, and a prize goes to  the guest who can show most shells at  tho end of the day. In excuse it may  be said that the Vigo oyster Is small,  for a prize winner will sometimes show  as many as 20b shells.  A Waste ot Ilreath,  "You can always tell an Englishman," began the Britisher boastfully.  "But it would only be a waste of  breath," interrupted tho Yankee, "because ho thinks ho .knows it all."  A^ Worker.  Knicker���������Can he accomplish much?  Knocker���������I should say so.   He can do  as much as tho man who didn't mean  This Bird Has a Hide About as Touch  ������������ Tbnt of an Ox,  The loon differs from other birds in a  number of ways. I have reason to  think that many people are unaware  of some at least of. these peculiarities.  The loon has a hide as tough as an ox,  and its feathers cannot be plucked  without first scalding the bird as you  would a hog. This Incident will give  some idea of the toughness of the hide:  About thirty-five years ago, when I  was living in Michigan, a loon was  shot at. with a shotgun industriously  all summer without apparently doing  bim any barm. In the fall I killed him  with a rifle just to convince tbe people  that a loon could be shot and killed.  He bad many times been shot at with  a rifle by the same people who had  used the shotgun, and they had become  convinced that he dived so quickly that  be dodged the shot in that way. I had  seen them shoot at him a number of  times, and I could see the splash of  bullet or shot in the water before the  loon dived. I ridiculed the idea of the  dodging, and that led to my shooting  him to support my contention. When I  skinned the bird I found and counted  over a hundred No. 6 shot, all of them  stuck to the inside of the hide and so  doing him no permanent harm. It is  remarkable tbat he was never hit in  the eye nor sustained a broken wing.  Another thing peculiar to the loon is  that after the chicks are hatched, if the  mother wishes to move far, she will  make a shallow dive and come up under her babies and swim oft with them  on ber back. The person that succeeds  in photographing her under such conditions may well claim the pennant. Only once have I seen a loon shoulder her  young, although for over twenty years  I lived In tlie part of Michigan where  then there was the best chance imaginable to watch loons. Now the timber  has been cut off around most of the  lakes, and such favorable conditions  for observation no longer exist  Although I have only once seen a  loon shoulder her babies, I have seen  her swimming with them on her back  many times. Once one swam within  twenty feet of me and never suspected  my presence.  One of their calls when sitting on the  water for volume beats that of any  ^tbeT~Brrd~or~beast-tbat-I-know~ofT~I-  have heard them in the night when  they were more than five miles distant,  for they only make that .kind of call  from the water, and there was no lake  In that direction short of that distance.  To say that the loon is a very Interesting bird is as mild as I can express it  ���������Forest and Stream.  All  Used  Up  By  IHlea  Gould Not Eat or Work���������Powders and Quick  Cures of no Avail���������Lasting Guro  Obtained   From  DR.    CHASE'S    NERVE    FOOD.  POINTED PARAGRAPHS.  This case of Mr. Barber well illustrates the way in which Dr. Chase's  Nerve Pood cures headaches.  He tried the so-called "quick-cures"  first, but without obtaining benefit.  It is a well known fact that such remedies when they do bring temporary  relief do so with a tremendous waste  of nerve force and consequent injury  to the system. ,  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food cures by  enriching the bipod, vitalizing the  nerves and building up the system.  Headache, as well as all other symptoms of au exhausted system, disappear before its influence*. Its cures  lasting because it removes the cause  of the trouble.  Mrs. George Fuller, Lakeland, Man.,  writes:���������"I am very glad to be able  to state that I have received great  benefit from the- use of Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food. It has cured me of nervous headache from which I used to  be be a great sufferer and I am no  longer troubled with the twitching of  the nerves in the arms and legs that  I used to have as soon as I went   to  bed. I am grateful for this cure and  shall always recommend Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food to anyone suffering as I  Mrs. James Clancy, 714 Water  street, Peterboro, Ont., states:���������"I  have used four boxes of Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food, and found them an excellent medicine. I was troubled more  or less for nineteen years with severe  headaches, which made me useless as  fay as accomplishing my work was  concerned.  "The Nerve Food seemed to build  me. up generally, and so made a  thorough cure of my old trouble. I  I would not think of being without  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food in the house,  and would strongly recommend any  one suffering as I did to give it a  trial. It succeeded in my case after  a great many remedies had failed."  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, 50 cents a  box, six boxes for $2.50, at all dealers,  or Ednianson, Bates & Co., Toronto.  To protect you against imitations,  the signature of Dr. A. W. Chase, the  famous receipt book author, are on  every box.  "Gee whiz!" said George for the  twentieth, time, "it makes me mad  every time 1 think of the $10 I lost today. I actually feel as if I'd like to  have somebody kick me." "By the  way, George," said the dear girl,  dreamily, "don't you think you'd better speak to father this evening?"  .

MacLeod  <���������)  ������ ;   The jester bowed low before the  throne. The king extended a much be-  jeweled hand. The jester bent over it  reverently and slyly bit it. The queen  laughed behind her fan and beckoned  the clown to her side. He sank on the  stops at her feet.  "This is my throne for tonight," he  announced, gayly jingling his bells. "I  shall surrender it to no one. For one  night I shall speak only the plain, unvarnished truth, your majesty."  "One who would speak the truth, Sir  Cap and Bells," replied the queen sagely, "must needs have some previous  experience."  "Ha, ha!" chuckled the king, beaming at the vision at his side. "Well  said, my lady. Previous experience,  Sir Fool!"  Age jangled in the voice of the king;  youth bubbled in the laughter of the  jester. The queen unconsciously leaned on the arm next to the clown and  closed her eyes for a moment to rest  them from the bewildering sight before her. To be queen of one of the  most splendid Mardi Gras balls is  something to turn a girl's heart. But  this one, to judge by her weary eyes���������  in spite of the magnificence surrounding her and in face of the king's open  devotion-���������was bored. And the evening was only beginning.  The jester at her feet played with  his bells and hummed "If Ever I  Cease to Love" in time with the musicians far overhead. As he sang he  watched the face of the queen. Suddenly she turned to him.  "Sir Fool," she said gently, "that air  goes not with that get-up. Save your  voice for "Tell Me, Pretty Maiden."  "Would she listen if I told her, think  you?" he whispered eagerly. "There  has never been but one pretty maiden  for me, your majesty."  _^A-maid_is_b.ut_a���������m^,l'^e_qujMn  returned slowly, "and a man but a  man, and love is but"���������  "Everything!" the jester interrupted  seriously. "Love is all."  The king called the second time, then  had to touch tlie arm of the queen before she heard him. Two strange  princes stood waiting to bo presented.  Behind them camo a train of Cupids,  Lohengrins and monks, each bearing a  tray of compliments. The queen's eyes  were big and suddenly bright The  king sat with his fat hand on his heart  and listened to her bandying repartee  with each in turn. The Jester's bells  were silent. He was attentively studying the queen's pink nails on the hand  resting on the vase of magnificent  roses near tho throne.  "You should havo been a queen," tho  king announced ponderously as tho last  troubadour moved off.  "You were born a queen," the jester  whispered eagerly.  "This splendor shall always bo  yours," tlie king continued In business  tones. "Everything shall bo yours that  money can buy. But you woro fitted  for a real throne."  "'Kind hearts are moro than coronets,' " tho Jester sang softly to tlio air  of "Under tho Bamboo Tree." "And  tlio truest throne Is a throbbing heart,  lady." Tho queon frowned at him Impatiently and turned to tlio king, who  was presenting two forolgn gonerals,  nblazo with decorations, No, sho was  not dancing, sho told them. Tho king  couldn't dance, and It flattered him  that sho was so woll content on tho  throne bosldo him. Tho Incident was  full of significance.

What are the king's  millions to my love, Margot?"  Into the eyes of the queen a great  light suddenly leaped, but she sighed  again when she looked at the king.  One by one the maskers were straggling up to say good night. Far overhead the musicians were playing again  "If Ever I Cease to Love," the carnival  air. The king bent wearily toward her.  "Shall I come for my answer tomorrow?" he asked patiently. Then, with  fresh ardor, "You will not walk the  world's way weeping when the coachman bids you ride, your majesty?" he  questioned pleadingly.  "My love"���������the jester's lips touched  her hand���������"if you choose the palace,  who will keep my home?"

"I can never marry you, your majesty, because I am to  wed another."  "To wed another?" the king faltered  pitifully.   "To-wed-another?"

Italian Scientist Invents an Instrument  Used to Observe Minutest Insects  ���������Smallest Cells Shown.  Many times more powerful than the  most highly. Improved microscope to  which modern science is indebted for  numerous important discoveites is tho  "bioscope," recently invented by M. Do  Gosparls, an Italian sclc-mist, of the  University of Naples, ItalyV  This wonderful apparatus is a "long  focus"   microscope,    designed,   as   its  name  Implies,  for the  study  of    the  phenomena of animal life in all cases  ,-���������  in which it is impossible for the observer to get close enough to the ob-  ^  Ject  that  ls being  examined, without |  risk of misinterpreting what is seen.     ^  The powerful microscope of to-day is ?;  capable of revealing the inmost struc-  ;���������  ture of minute beings that escape the  sight, and of counting the number of  cells, of which they are composed, but ���������'  it Is almost impossible to oversee with  ,  it the phases of the normal life, of such  organisms.  How can it be said that observation  of the normal life of an ��������� organism can  be made when, in order to examine it.  the investigator is obliged to bring  within a fraction of an Inch of such  an organism an apparatus that can- j  not fail to frighten it? -  In order to observe the normal life  of microscopic organisms, another Instrument is therefore necessary, cap-..,  able of being used in cases in which-;  the  ordinary  instrument becomes  inadequate.      It is such an instrument  that has recently been brought to the;  attention of the world of scientists by?  M. de Gosparis, the great    value    of]  which discovery he sets forth and do-  scribes in a most interesting manner.  The "bioscope" is extremely simple.  It is provided with a camera lucida to  permit of the drawing of the objects  observed. It consists of a tube with'  a rack provided internally with a system of achromatic objectives perfectly free from spherical ebarration, and  with a wide field eyepiece.  The instrument Is also provided with  a system of mensuration of various  arrangements for supporting diaphragms. At a distance of 19.6 Inches,  the microscope has a magnifying power of more than twelve diameters, say  of 144 times the surface.

TO BE SEEN IN LONDON  AN UNRIVALLED COLLECTION OF  COINS AND MEDALS.  British Musoum Curios of Especial Interest to the Student of Numismatics���������Greek Division First With tho  Earliest Known Example of An Inscribed Coin���������Jewish Coins That  Illustrate the Bible.  The lover of curiosities has an ample field of delight open to him In the  unrivalled collection of coins and  medals. To the student of numismatics so extensive and representative ls  the department It Is nothing less than  a boon alike, in its historical and ar-  ilstic features. In both respects the  Greek division stands foremost. There  ls the earliest known example, about  B. C. 700.   Struck In Lydia, its mater-  ' r1l\5T IN*3CrtBfij$'  ?������P!.*<������  lal consists of a metal called electrum,  a mixture of gold and silver from washings obtained of the waters of Pactolus.  The earliest known coin bearing an  Inscription is believed to be of Ephe-  slan origin. This specimen is an electrum stater of the 7th century. Above  the back of a stag, in retrogade archaic  characters, ls the Inscription, "I am  the sign of the Bright One, the goddess Artemis." Several examples can  be seen of the gold and silver coinages  of the renowned Croesus, King of Lydia, and there is also one of the Persian gold darles, first struck in the  reign of Darius I., B. C. 521-485. The  crowned figure, with spear and shield,  has quaintness of design. A couple of  very artistic examples of the earliest  coinage of Athens, probably of the  time of Solon, possess distinction. On  the obverse appears Athena, protecting  goddess of the city; on the reverse the  sacred owl and olive branch. Very  noteworthy is the specimen of the  earliest silver money introduced into  -Europe,-and-beliexeaV_to_haveJbs.������n,__by_  Pheidon, King of Argos.  All the examples enumerated belong  to the style of Greek coinage of what  is technically known as its archaid  phase. The next section includes specimens characterized as belonging to  the transitional and early fine art  period, and which includes a, fascinating selection of pieces struck in Elia,  referring to the worship of the Olympian Zeus and Hera. Many examples  from Sicilian cities will reward studious  Inspection from    traces of developing  in their accuracy. Among historical  coins can be noted the three-pound  piece of Charles I.; and others having  on their reverses "Declaration," being  the substance of words delivered to the  Privy Council, September, 1642, that  the King would preserve the'Protestant  religion, the laws of England, and the  liberty of Parliament. The Scottish  coinage, which began in the reign of  David I., and the Irish, introduced by  the Norse Invaders in most remote  time, are fully and most interestingly  represented.  Closely allied with the coin department is that of the historical medal'*,  which had their English initial stage  m the reign of Henry VIII. At first tney  were of a personal character, commemorating Individuals rather than  events. Artistically, one of the most  noteworthy later was a presentment of  Mary, Queen of Scots, executed by the  Italian artist, Giacomo Primavera. At  the British Museum there are very  striking medalllc portraits of the great  Civil war time���������Strafford, Laud, Hampden, and Prince. Deeply interesting  likewise are the badges struck by the  order of the Parliament for the battle  of Dunbar, showing on one side the  bust of Cromwell, with a view of the  conflict in the distance. Other great  historical events are thus commemorated, from the Monmouth rebellion to  illustrations of the  Peninsula wa*"  mere are aiso uanan, jjutcu, uer-  man, and French medals. One of the  most curious in the latter class has  been reproduced in facsimile in the  Napoleon series commemorating the  projected invasion of England, "frap-  . pee a Londres." The medal was never  circulated and is not known to exist,  but at Bloomsbury there is an electrotype. Another impressive facsimile is  that of the "Waterloo medal designed  by the celebrated Pistrucci. It is a  most elaborate design, introducing figures, mythological and historic. Among  the latter are Wellington galloping m  advance, and Blucher rushing to his  aid. The artist having delayed the  work until Wellington alone survived,  the medal was not issued.

Happily, even in those whose vision  is most limited there is always something that acts in silence, as though  they had seen. It is possible perhaps  that to be good is only to be in a little light what all are in darkness.  Therefore, doubtless, it is woll that we  should endeavor to raise our life and  ^0uld~^Wive^"owar3~������ummitS"^hTre'"  ill doing becomes impossible. And,  therefore, too, it is well to accustom  the eye to behold events and men in  a divine atmosphere. But even that  ia not indispensable, and how small  must the difference seem to the eyes of  a God!  We are in a world where truth reigns  at the bottom of things and where it  is not truth, but falsehood, that needs  to be explained.  Those who think of nothing have the  same truth as those who think of God.  The truth is a little farther from tho  threshold; that is all.  There are about us thousands and  thousands of poor creatures who havo  nothing of beauty in their lives. They  come, they go In obscurity, and wo  believe that all is dead within them,  and no one pays any heed, And then  one day a simple word, an unexpected  silence, a little tear that springs from  the source of beauty itself, tells us  that they havo found the means of  raising aloft in the shadow of theiri  soul an Ideal a thousand times more  beautiful than tho most beautiful  things their oars have ever heard or  have their eyes over seen.-���������Maurice  Maeterlinck.

Lachlne,  Quebec,  Correspondent Tells  of Strange Ailment of the Woods  That Leads to a Tragedy.  Night-blindness is an ailment prevalent among lumbermen who work in  shanties remote enough to make vegetables an unusual luxury, says a La-  chine, Quebec, correspondent. In most  instances the persons affected have  the normal use of their eyesight from  sunrise to sunset, but are stone blind  when the sun ls below the horizon.  Sometimes the trouble comes on  slowly, beglnnlg with a dimness of vision at morning and evening, and Increasing until it is impossible for the  patient to stir outside except when  the sun ls high. At other limes, and  especially in the bright days of March,  when the glare of the sun upon tho  sn-ow is trying to all eyes, night-blindness seta in suddenly.  There was a curious case of this sudden coming on of the blindness in the  Ottawa lumber district, near Beaver  Lake. Pour men had been detailed to  mark the logs laid upon the ice, and  they had worked three or four days  In the scorching light of the March sun  reflected from the clear lake surface  with particularly bad results. Two of  them were sufferers from night-blindness and had to be led home at night  by their comrades, and as their shanty  was four miles away from the lake it  was their custom to start back a little before sundown.  All Completely Blind.  One day they had about finished the  Job and worked rather late to complete it To their dismay they found  when they stopped work and slipped  on their coats that all four were completely blind.  The night was terribly cold and  there was more than half a gale of  north wind blowing across the lake. To  attempt to grope their way home would  be to risk their lives. Happily, one  of the men remembered that one of the  great timbers used as a skidway was a  stick of white birch, the canoe tree of  the Indians.  Cautiously they felt their way to this  log and contrived to tear away a section of the paper-like bark. Hastily  rolling this up into what would answer  for a torch they lit it with a match  and derived light enough for three of  the four to be able to distinguish their  surroundings.  The birch pole was at once completely stripped of Its bark, and while at  this work they decided that it would  be almost madness to try to reach  -their-shanty_that���������nIght_a^ng���������.thojaa������,  row pathway their footsteps bad made  in the deep snow. Right across an arm  of the lake on a projecting point was  a deserted shanty, and thither they determined to go.  The Journey was difficult, as even  With the flaming bark to guide them  the poor fellowB found it difficult to  steer a straight course. It was probably near midnight when they pushed  open the rude wooden-hinged door and  entered the shanty.  Discover a Tragedy.  A Are was quickly started in the caboose with some of the poles taken  from the bottom of one of tho shelflike sleeping bunks, still In position all  around tbe walla. After a time their  sense of seeing oamo back to them  as they sat about the bright fire, and  they could look about their new home  with tolerable clearness, As their vis-  Ion cloared they made out the figure of a man seated at the clerk's desk  in tho corner, with a fine hound at  hia feet  A llttlo investigation showed that  both man and dog wore stone dead  and frozen to atiffneBS. It was evident  that the shanty had been the homo of  tbe dead pair for a considerable time.  The greater part of fine deor hung  In tho cook's lean*to which was entered by a door from the rear of tho  shanty. No trace of flour or other provisions was to be seen.  The visitors had been prodigal In  their uso of matches and now discovered that thoy had usod the last of their  supply, Tho koonoBt search of the  clothing and atorea of tho daad man  fallod to discover a elngla one, Though  thoy found a flno rlflo in good order  in the bunk wherein tho bed had been  mado, not a alngle cartridge wherewith  a flame might be obtained could be  found. They are onoe piled all available fuel near their fire and determined to watch beside it all night,  The dead man wa> drossod In city  clothes, aome brown ohecker matorlal,  woll made, and he had a good gold  watch.

The visitor to the Falkand Isles sees  scattered here and there singular shaped blocks of what appear to be weather  beaten and moss covered bowlders in  various sizes. Attempt to turn one of  theso bowlers over and you will meet  with a real surprise, because the stone  is actually anchored by roots of great  strength; in fact, you will find that you  are trifling with one of the native trees.  No other country In the world has such  a peculiar "forest" growth.  BREEDING FOR MILK.  Medicated Dust Bath.  Do not forget that dust baths are the  natural remedy for lice and mites, and  fowls should always be provided with  them. Sand and road dust mixed with  a small quantity of pyre thum powder  will generally keep the birds free from  vermin and thus give them a better  chance to make the progress desired  by their breeder.���������Poultry Expert  A BRITISHER IN FRANCS.  Incidents in the Life of Old Sir Edward  Blount.  Old Sir Edward Blount, who has Just  died in England at the age of 96, was  for nearly 50 years the managing president and controller of the Great Western Railroad of France. The railroad  connects Paris with all tho great seaports and naval strongholds on the  northwest and western coasts, and in  view of the fact that the Great Western lines would have been precisely  thoso of most vital importance to the  French Government and to the French  nation, In the event of war with England, it speaks volumes for the confidence of the entire French people In his  lofty sense of honor that he should have  been allowed, though an Englishman, to  retain this office of president so long.  He was In control of the lines under  ���������Kliig-Louis-Phllipperthe-second-Repub-.  lie, throughout the 18 years of the second Empire, and under the third Republic until about 10 years ago, when  the Dreyfus scandal so upset people in  France, shook to such an extent their  trust in the honor of their closest  friends, their relatives and their  neighbors, that old Sir Edward, then  85, but still hale and hearty, was quietly recommended to resign the chairmanship of that railroad/which he had  helped to build.  As a boy of 10 he witnessed tho triumphal return of the first Marquis of  Anglesey to his country seat of Beau-  desert after the battle of Waterloo. He  was an assistant private secretary of  the great statesman, Canning, was a  clerk in tho Foreign Office when the  despatches announcing tho naval batttle  of Navarlno arrived there, and he was  obliged to copy them out for tho king.  He went to Paris in 1831 as an attache  of the British Embassy there, but abandoned diplomacy for banking, established an Anglo-French banking house  in Paris, and succeeded so well that  when the railroad fever struck Franco  ho was enabled to finance tho construction of the West of France Railroad.  Blount know Talleyrand, dined at  Versailles with Bismarck In 1870, and  volunteered to act as British Consul  without pay during the siege of Paris  by tho Germans and during the subsequent Commune insurrection, saving  tho lives of at least 20 Englishmen and  Americana who had been condemned to  bo shot by tho insurgents,  It waB during that time, too, that as  British Consul it fell to his lot to per-  form tho marriage ceremony uniting  Sir Richard Wallace to hia French wife,  This was, as It ultimately turned out,  unfortunate, since It served to draw  attention, officially and otherwise, to  tho fact that thoy woro not married up  to that tlmo, and that their grown-up  Bon, a gallant officer of French culroa-  slors, who distinguished himself In tho  famous oavalry charge at Sedan, was  Illegitimate and incapable, thoroforo, of  ouocoeding to tho horedltary honors  subsequently conferred upon Sir Richard by Quoon Victoria,  Lady Wallace, owing to this tardy  marrlago, was ��������� barred from court In  England and ostracised by English society. But when ho died Sir Richard  left not merely the whole of his viwt  property, but likewise his priceless art  collection, to hor, ho that sho might  present tho collection as her gift to  that English nation which virtually had  closed its doors against her. Tho collection Is now a tmito Institution, houu-  od at Hertford House in London, and  celebrated throughout tho world as ono  wl thu moot. u..;^!.,. ul u.il i..uj'.������....'..

In an article by M. on the subject oi  breeding for milk appears in The Scottish Farmer Album for 1905, in which  the writer gives the experience of Mr.  Lawrence of Newton Rigg, Penrith, in  regard to the part played by the sir*  on the milking qualities    of the progeny.   Four exceptionally heavy milkers were put to a beefy bull, the dam  of which was a nice-bagged cow    ol  good milking strain, but the sire    ol  which, a big massive bull, was    ot a  strain the milking qualities of which  had been neglected.   Each of tho foul  cows bred a heifer calf to this beefy  bull.   Afterwards they had each a heifer calf to an Underley bull, bred foi  milk.   A comparison was made between  the milk yield of the four heifers by  the beefy bull and the four by the Underley bull,   and   the   contrast was a  striking  one.    One  set  gave  In    ona  season 1,184 gallons, whilst their half-  sisters gave 2,855 gallons of milk. Hers  we find the results of using a bull out  of a cow which probably most of   ul  would have readily accepted as a sulti  able dam for breeding a bull calf fitted  to at least conserve the milking quail*  ties of a herd.thlnking���������if we ever gava  it thought���������any enquiry into the breeding of her sire was immaterial.   And  yet note  the results���������the curious  results, one can oaly call them.      Tha  milking qualities of the dam seem to  have had no effect, but the influenca  of the sire absolutely overbore her on  the one point on which wo might expect the maternal influence to    hava  been    all-powerful.    Evidently,  there  fore, we want to pursue our enquiries  much further than one generation in  a bull's pedigree before we can admli  him into a herd with any certainty ol  the results;  indeed,     to do otherwisi  seems to be to court disaster.   Bearing  this in mind, the man who is satisfied  by going to a sale and buying a bull  calf out of a "nice-bagged cow"    can  hardly be considered as doing the wisest thing, although his action is wisdom itself as compared to what ls, il  ls to be feared, the more common practice, that of sitting at an auction marl  and buying anything���������that seems worth  the money.   This may be all right foi  the breeder of fat or store cattle, but  It is not the way to breed cows.    Ol  course, this shuts out the non-pedijrres  bull as a factor in the evolution of a  dairy herd; facts seem to point so conclusively to the overpowering influenca  of���������the-���������elre���������on���������the���������mllk-producing-  qualitles, that no man attempting   to  breed cows can afford to risk using a  bull of uncertain descent    Therefore*  whatever the breed, he must be of registered pedigree,  but  pedigree    with  registered performance.  Then comes the question of rnllH  quality. That this can bo Influenced  by breeding has been pretty fully proved, and the care taken in selecting bulls  by the owners of what we may cali  butter-making herds, shows that in  their opinion the bull is a conslderabla  factor In this direction also. The cause*  influencing milk quality seem to be es  many, and are so little known, that al  present we have hardly any guiding  principles on which to act When a  cow can���������and frequently does���������vary M  much as 2 per cent, in the amount ol  milk fat in 24 hours, without any apparent reason, It seems Impossible!  with our present knowledge, to begin  the task of selection on other than thi  broadest grounds and to do even thll  means the keeping of not only an accurate milk record, which is easllU  done���������but tho far moro difficult and  troublesome work of weekly or fortnightly teats, and these, to be of real  value, must bo accurate all throughi  accurate in tho taking, tho mixing, and  the analysts of each sample.

DAVIDSON,  Editor and Manager of the Albertan,  Calgary.       ,  The newspaper man working  on a daily is at all times  up against the time limit. His  are daily anxious hours, and a steady  strenuosity. In a weekly office, there  is hustle on press day, but In a daily  the motto is "hustle" every minute, of  every day. ��������� The leisurely progress towards the,weekly climax is ia striking contrast with the orderly confusion at all times reigning in a daily of-  -fiee���������and���������men���������who-are-gettihgl^out,  fifty-two issues a year, and doing their  work well, would be utterly lost if  they had put out three hundred. The  latter demands a thorough knowledge  of all departments pf. a newspaper production, talents of quick organization,  and a wide knowledge, of men; and  things, as well as a mechanical equipment much superior. Many a man  who has made a successful editor of  a country weekly has failed lament-  . ably when the conditions of growth  warranted the; change to a daily.'  ���������, Speaking in the large, the editors  ot daily papers In Western Canada  have peculiar qualifications for their  work. ��������� The high- telegraph tolls and  the sparse population combine to make  news expensive and the circulations  small, but, when these conditions are  considered, and the consequent small  revenue at the disposal of the newspapers taken into account, the quality ' of the Western Canadian .daily  press Is a never ceasing marvel to  those who know it.. In the ranks of  the men producing It are included  somo of tho brightest journalists lh  the Dominion, men qualified by training nnd ability to hold any position  on any metropolitan paper.  Among this class Mr. William McCartney Davidson, the editor and  manager of the Calgary Albertan, undoubtedly finds a placo. He ls a trained newspaper man in ovory sons������ of  tho word. There is no department  of journalism through which ho has  not graduated, and "matlo good," Ho  has'been police court reporter, street  reporter, Interviewer, sporting editor,  dmmntlo nnd art critic, commercial  oditor, political correspondent, ��������� minor-  lal writer and QiUtor-ln-chlof, nnd has  ovon gone to the limit of short story  writer and poet.  Mr. Davidson's professional equipment was built ii pon tho solid foundation of a good university training.

T.  ynJT aMtaayamam*%****u  eak Hair  graduated from Tononto University  in 1893 after a very commendable  couree, taking high honors in political  science and History, the two subjects  having most intimate connection with  his ehosen career.  Th* editor of the Albertan is an Ontario boy, having been bora in Prince  Edward County in 1872. He is of the  U. E. Loyalist descent, his four grandparents all having been born in Canada. He was educated in th������ public  schools at Prince Edward County, at  Picton High School and St Catherines  Collegiate Institute before going to  college.  After graduating, Mr. Davidson at  once got into newspaper work. He  began his journalistic career on the  Toronto World���������September, 1893. In  the following year he joined the Star  staff, and for some years he was leading political reporter on that paper,  being later made assistant city editor. In 1900 he left the Star, going to  the Toronto News, in which he was  for a few months city editor. In 1901  he left the News, to become editor  of the London News. In the following  year he bought the Albertan and  came west.  At that time the Albertan was a,  semi-weekly publication, with a "patent inside." Today it is a morning  daily of eight pages, with a daily  growing circulation. It has a battery  of three machines to set it's news  matter, and its mechanical equipment  has periodically to, be enlarged to  cope with its increasng popularity.  Mr. Davidson was married in 1899  to a daughter of the late Rev. Dr.  Robertson, superintendent of missions  in. the Presbyterian church. Mrs. Davidson was a writer of rare ability, and  would have made a mark in Canadian  literature but for her untimely death  in 19.04. She left on record some very  clever short stories and charming  poetry.  In addition to his onerous editorial  work, Mr. Davidson has many other  activities. He is a member of the  board of management of Western Canada College, secretary of the board  of managers of Knox Presbyterian  church, director of the Inter-Western  Exhibition Company, member of the  council of the Calgary board of trade,  member of the executive committee of  the Calgary Liberal Association, and  vice-president of the Calgary baseball league.  In his newspaper work, Mr. Davidson's personal inclination is toward  the editorial end. In this department  he is at his best, excelling in the semi-  ���������humorous,-sarcastic_Qr���������ironical,_In de^  scriptive ������and impressionist writing he  is perhaps without a rival in the West,  and his half column sketching characterizations of men and things are  read and looked for by Mother newspapermen whenever they���������as they too  seldom do���������appear. In politics, as  may.be judged from the editorials of  the Albertan, he is a Liberal of the  more advanced kind, belonging to  what is becoming known as the Canadian radical school.

I said, 'Novor be  false to mc, Helena, for if you were  I should kill myself-���������perhaps both  of us,' and now have you any reason  to offer why I should not carry out  my threat?" he cried, trembling with  jealous rage.  "You have gone mad, Mark," she  answered, quietly.  "You have spoken .the truth," he  cried. "I am mad, my brain is on  fire; but it is you who.have driven  me to it, and you must suffer for  what you have done���������an eye for an  eye, a heart for a heart. I will give  you one last chance," he cried,  sternly; "will you consent to marry  me at once? I am not to bo duped  any more by false promises���������it is  life or death to both you and me."  He bent his fierce, fiery eyes upon  the beautiful, pallid face raised to  his in the moonlight, and as she  gazed up at him in terror tho terrible truth smote upon her chilled  heart li all Its horror; there was no  light of reason in his luridly flaming  eyes.  The shock of finding his first love,  only     to lose her in this way,    had  forged the last link in the chain of  . fate; it had driven him to madness;  reason was dethroned.  And Helena realized it with a thrill  of horror as she stood alone with  him on the pier, listening to the faint  cry of the sea-gulls as they echoed  over the bay, and the weird, solemn  wash of the tide that sounded like a  requiem.  "Mark!" she cried, in piteous terror, falling on her knees before him,  "spare me!"  He~\v.as_deaf -to_h.er pra>*ei*j*__anjd  pleadings.  "I will spare you by taking you  ���������with me, Helena," he answered,  earnestly, never for a moment losing  his firm hold of her white arm. "I  will take you where no promises are  ever broken, where those whom we  love aro never false; you will be true  to me there."  Ho looked out over the moonlighted water as he spoke, and hor dark  eyes followed his gaze, fixed Willi unspeakable horror.  "Oh, Mark! what would you do?"  she gasped, wringing her white hands  in mortal anguish. She was so  young; and as she stood thoro, in  such deadly peril, life seemed unutterably sweet to her.  At that moment a dark object gliding over the water caught her eye,  and sho knew it was a steamer  crossing thu bay. Ah I if Heaven  would but send it near her���������so near  that her wild cries for help would  roach it���������she would bo safe, and a  piteous wall broko from tho poor  soul's pallid lips.  Mark Forrester bent upon her a  look of subtle cunning; ho soomod to  raid..the wild.',, thoughts that wero  pressing in hof brain, and ho heard  her moan: \  "Frederick, my '-lox?������ *lve���������������h������  ���������r.vq raol" '$:���������;:/���������  "No ono must tako you from mo,'  ho erlod, turning his gleaming eyos  out to tho water again. "If ^ker^,  you here, you wouldrehido ine' again  and 0y to him whom you havo dared  to love. I shall placo you hoyond  hi* power. I mh\, if you woro (also  to mo, wo should die together���������ana  you shall como with mo whoro thero  will bo no moro partings, no more  heart-pangs. Oh, Holoiia���������-so false,  vot so fair!"

You pledged yoursiuf to mo  In llfo and in doat.li, Helena Hcath-  cliff, and mlno you shall hu!"

There  was a swift plunge, a second cry of  terror in a girlish voice, thon tho  black waters closed over tho two  struggling forms and the tide rolled on as before.  CHAPTER XXH.  In an Instant all was confusion on  the deck of the steamer. A life-boat  was quickly lowered and headed toward the spot where the two forms  had disappeared.  "Pull lively, my lads," cried one  of the sailors. "There's one of them,  at least." And a moment later , a  woman's form was drawn into, the  boat.  A fruitless search was made for her  companion.  One of the. sailor's solemnly declared he had observed a dark form  strike out boldly for the shore. Further search was therefore abandoned  as useless.  The passengers flocked eagerly  around the beautiful young girl lying  so still and white on the;sofa in tho  cabin where she had been placed ���������  all the passengers save a young and  handsome man gloomily pacing the  deck.  What did it matter to him whether  a young and beautiful girl had been  rescued from death in the hungry  waves or not?  The young man was Herbert Ren-  wick.  ���������He had altered his plans suddenly,  and leaving the train at the first station out from Baltimore, had returned and taken passage on the steamer.  Tho ladies on     board the steamer  took special charge of Helena. Every  attention was shown her, yet it was  j-iujte a week before she was able to  raise her head Trom lTeT"pllT5w" ~  All attempts to discover her namo  or address met with a quiet but firm  rebuff; yeti with tears in her eyes she  pleaded that the affair might be given no publicity, as It was merely an  accident.  Time flew by swift-winged.  Night after night Helena had tossed restlessly to and fro upon hor pil-  ^y weary of life, for it held nothing for her,- now that all was over  between Frederick and herself.  Pleasant sailing and a smooth se  had attended the voyage thus far  but on the night of the eighth da>  the air grew heavy and misty.  "Wo     shall have     a storm  befon  morning," predicted the contain; and  thoso who knew    him best detected  anxiety in his tone.  Tlto storm burst upon them at  midnight, and, to add to thoir misfortunes, tne ..-ship took firo. Herbert  Renwick stood calmly upon the deck  while the lifeboats were lowered and  tho women and children put into  them.  Tho crimson glare of the leaping  flames, tho hiss and roar of the burning eotton, the dark figures dashing  plteously to and fro, the hoarse cry  of the sailors, tho splashing of tho  oars of the life-boats in tho turbulent  wator, tho fright, tlto confusion aud  dismay, all combined to mako it a  ���������cone of thrilling horror.  Herbert Renwick and tho captain  were tho last to leavo the doomed  steamer.  "Thank Heaven all aro saved���������no  lives aro lost!" exclaimed tho captain, fervently, glancing back; with  a shudder at tho tunning boat wrapped fa its winding-sheet of flamo and  smoko. Suddenly there wat a cry of  horror from tho captain's boat. Whero  was tho beautiful stranger? In tho  terrible confusion sho had not boon  missed, Hho had been left upon tho  burning steamer.  In an Instant tho captain's boat  was turned about.  "It is my duty to save hor If I  can," cried tho captain; "and if I  dio tn tho (InmoN in tlto attempt, may  Heaven comfort my wife nnd little  children!"  "let, mo go." crlod Herbert Renwick. "T nm younger, stronger, and  moro ngi'.o."  In Helena's state-room quite a different scene- was I rnnsplrini'. Tho  noisio nnd confusion had awakened  hor, und 1.11a smoko pouring into hor  room    in     thick,     blinding volunuw  hljl.cn   int.       tt.   ....   ...     ....'.    ��������� ..  li',���������' *, .,'.!��������� ; ; " it *,!:���������"< M" throw-  Ing ouo of tlio double blankets from  th������ bod ahoiit lier, aud miturntlng It  with water from tho wuier-piii ioi,  sho made Jot way through the bl i mill, rr ..(utile tn'.'-Mi-'l lies door, calling  loudly for help.

What was the sound that rose like  a bugle-call over the sound of the  waves and the crackling of the  flames?  Helena sprung to her feet in breathless suspense.  "Where are you?" called a voice.  "I havo come to save you!"  "Here at the stern," cried the  girl, staggering forward.  "Have courage, I am coming!"  called the same voice that sounded  strangely familiar.  With a cry of joy Helena cast herself into the outstretched arms, and  in an instant she was lowered into  a small boat that shot with lightning-like rapidity away from tho  burning steamer, but not a moment  too soon. They were scarcely out  of harm's way ere the ship began to  settle. The fire-fiend had done its  terrible work, and now the hungry  waves claimed its prey.  As the boat had been too small to  admit of an additional burden, the  captain stepped into one of the lifeboats, expecting that Helena, together with her gallant rescuer, and  the old sailor who manned the boat,  would soon follow him.  But in the darkness that followed  the settling of the burned steamer,  the little yawl missed the life-boats,  aud with its three occupants drifted  out alone at the mercy of the waves.  After depositing his burden in the  bow of the yawl, Herbert Renwick  turned to the aged sail.or.  "Losing sight of the other boats  is a terrible calamity," he whispered.  "If we can manage to keep  from being run down in the  darkness by some passing vessel, we  will, in all probability, be picked up  when daylight breaks," returned the  man.  The chill, fright, and darkness had  told upon Helena, and, being tired  out, she had fallen into a deep,  dreamless slumber.  For Herbert Renwick and the sailor there was no sleep.  Daylight broke, cold and gray,  oyer the water.  Herbert Renwack turned pityingly  to the muffled figure in the bow of  the boat, looked, then! -stared into  tho beautiful, white, ujAunned face,  for Helena had, by a restless movement, pushed the blanket from about  her and now lay with her pink,  flushed cheek resting against her  white rounded arm, her brown,  glossy curls falling about her like a  veil.  ���������~'-My G"5*d!"~~~Am-���������"I-mad~or-do~I-  drearn?" he cried, excitedly, "It is  ���������Frederick Castlcton's bride���������my  own lost darling!"  ��������� CHAPTER. XXIH.  Helena moved uneasily in her sleep,  as though conscious of the intense  gaze of the mesmeric, dark eyes bent  so earnestly upon her. The next  moment she opened her eyes.  The gray sen, with tho rosy flush  of tho rising sun upon it, lay, all  about hor, and before her, plying the  oars, sat two figures���������tho old sailor, with his weather-beaten, bronzed face, nnd pen-jacket, ond another  figure strangely familiar,  strangely famllaliv  Sho knew him o.t once, and put  out her hands to bim with a little  faltering  cry:  "Mr. Renwick!"  "Helena! Mrs. Castlcton!" he exclaimed, with deep emotion, his face  growing deadly pale. "Is It indeed  you whom I havo rescued? I was  not awaro that you and your husband wero on board."  Tears sprung to Helena's dark  eyos; her face flushed, then grew as  palo as his own for an Instant; then  sho turned to him bravely, and an-  ���������wnred i romuleusl'''  "I am not Mrs. Castloton. The���������  the���������-wedding���������was broken off, and  Z���������was on the steamer���������alone,"  "Tho woddlng was broke* offl"  cried Herbert Ronwick, aghast, a  gloam of joy breaking llko a glory  ovor his face, "You aro aot Fred-  crick Castlcton's brido?"  IIo could scarcoly bollovs that ho  had hoard aright. Had Heaven given bim the ono wish of his heart at  ths eleventh hour? In an instant ho  was beside her.  Helena read in his disturbed face  what was passing in his heart, and  hor eyes fell before his gaze in confusion and distress.  Hor peerlcKH beauty had boon a fatal gift to her. It had wrecked the  lives of three noble men, yot tho  fault was not hors.  "Oh, Helena! dare I hops that  I��������� *  IIo stopped short, abashed.

IIo said no mor<*, but with a heart  light In splto of tho surroundings,  ho lent himself to this task with  redoubled  rnergv.

No cry escaped Helena's lips. As  she glanced into the faces of the old  sailor and Herbert Renwick, she  read anxiety and despair in both of  them.  '"While there is life there is hope,"  exclaimed  Herbert,   cheerfully.  "Ay, ay, sir," responded the sail-  Fatc was kind to the shipwrecked  trio, and we are spared depicting the  pitiful suffering that usually attends  such cases. At noon they were rescued by a steamer bound for London,  and soon reached port.  On the dock the old sailor parted  from Helena and . Herbert Renwick  with a heart baud-shake.  "I am a lone, friendless old sailor," he said, sadly, '"and something  tells me 1 shall never ship again. I  will stay'on land for the rest of my  days. Tell me where you think of  stopping. I would not like to lose  sight of you," he said, turning wistfully toward Helena. "You remind  me strangely of ono whom I onco  knew *'  "I can not tell yet," replied Helena, "'but a line addressed to 'Helena Cameron, General Postoflice, London,' will be sure to reach me."  Tho old sailor turned abruptly  away, murmuring to himself as he  walked slowly away:  "It is a strange fancy of mine ���������  but those dark, starry eyes remind  me strangely of tho child Helena  Heathcllff."  Meanwhile Helena and Herbert Renwick had entered a cab.  "Helena^���������Miss Cmaeron," ho was  saying, earnestly, "something more  than an ordinary lover's quarrel has  caused you to take this step. Pardon  me for what I must say-^���������yet speak  I mast. I know the condition of  your father's will; I know that you  are not wealthy in the world's goods  and I believe that 3*ou have taken  this step to carve out a future  wherein you must gain your livelihood among strangers-."  No words fell from Helena's lips.  He did not know, then that she was  the one who had been picked up  from the dark waters, into which  Mark had sprung, holding her close-,  ly in his firm clasp, until the beating waves caused him to loosen his  clasp. Let him think she had come  there to gain her own livelihood  among strangers. It wras best that  he should think so.  ���������~���������"Y^5TT^TTyollh*ij^"ffd--unuiwd*,H*o*-the-  ways of the world," he cried; "in  this hour of need let me renew the  offer that I made you at Cameron  Hall���������be my wife."  "Mr. Renwick, please don't say  any more," she cried with a tremor  in her sweet young voice; "indeed I  can not marry you."  "Will you not allow your heart to  come to me in, the rebound? Surely  you can not love a man who parted  from you thus easily?"  Her lips quivered like those of a  grieving child. Sho put out her hands  suppllcatingly, yet sho did not answer him. Ho had broached tho subject nearest his heart too precipitately, ho t'old himself. IIo would not  loso hope, ho would win Helena  yet.  "What do you propose to do now  that you aro in London?" he asked,  "Let me bo your brother, your  friend and your counselor," ho added, earnestly.  "I haven't thought about that," replied Helena, with tho frankness of a  child. "I expect I had best go to a  hotel and think over what is tho  best for mo to do. I Intend to earn  my own living, Mr. Ronwick."  Herbert, Honwlok flushod, and looked pityingly down upon tho little  whlto hands upon which such costly  diamonds had gleamed but such a little whllo before, when sho had boon  the heiress of Cameron Hall, llie cab  stopper! in front of tho hotel, and  both alighted.  "You will at least allow me to  make arrangomeuts for you bore,"  said Herbert, earnestly; "you are  not used to anything of this kind. I  shall M3t intrude upon you, as I stop  elsewhere, I should llko to call In  tho course of a day or two, bringing  a relative of mlno with mo���������an aunt  who would gladly roeolvo you In her  homo for my wiko. Hanker Graham  and his wife will add their entreaties to mine to persuade you to accompany them homo."  Helena, shook her dark-brown curls  proudly.  "You may come and bring your  aunt with you, Mr, Renwick, but I  toll you now that I will not accompany her home. I Intend to earn my  own living."  "Wo shall soo," ho returned, with  a happy sinllo.  Ab ihey stood thoro a cab whirled  paHt. them���������a cab with a single occupant loaning wearily back among the  cushions,  his haiidsomo face    turned  Jl.ll t<-|ini>>       lUtirtlU      k.."-      v.uo.'v   .       ������������������������      ���������  hands at that moment. Calling for  paper and pen, he hastily wrote a  note which he hurriedly folded and  ordered delivered to Mr. Renwick,  the young American who had just  entered at the private entrance, or  to the lady who accompanied him.  "I will call later on during the  day for a reply," said Frederick Cas-  tleton, turning haughtily on his heel  and leaving the hotel.  Tho bell-boy, with tho no'te in his  hand, missed Renwick in the corridor. In tho parlor he found a young  and beautiful girl pacing restlessly  up and down.  "I beg your pardon, miss," said  tho boy, touching his cap politely;  "are you tho lndy who just camo  with Mr. Herbert Renwick?"  "Yes," responded  Helena.  "A gentleman has just left this  note for him; will you kindly tako  charge of it, mndame?"  "Certainly," responded Helena, and  tho 4 boy bowed himself out of her  prcsenco after placing thc noto in her.  hand.  Thoughtlessly she turned the nota  over in her hand, and glancing, at  tho superscription a cry broke from  her white lips. She knew the chiro-  graphy but too well���������it was Frederick  Castlcton's.  Like one fascinated, her eyes rah  over the. few lines of the note.  It was a challenge, stating that  Frederick Castleton would call during tho afternoon for his answer,  when all preliminaries could be arranged.  CHAPTER    XXIV.  Helena gazed at the fatal note.  Frederick here! ah, how her heart  throbbed at the thought. Then her  mind reverted!to the challenge which  She held in her trembling fingers.  "Frederick and Herbert must   not,  meet," she cried,  nervously pressing  her     white     hands tightly over her  heart,     "I    must prevent it at any  cost.    I must keep it from him."  As she stood there tlie truth seemed to flash across her brain. At tlie  very altar Frederick had sternly refused to aflow the marriage ceremony to proceed until she had divulged who it was with whom sho  parted the night before at the entrance to the rose arbor,  Surely sho could not have mistaken  Mark, for Herbert Renwick. Ah, it  must be so, else why should he have  followed him across the ocean to  jggk_ revenge? V,  "Did Frederick know that, she" was"-  there?" she asked herself.  A great longing swept over her  to fly to Frederick and plead with  him to take her back to his heart,  nnd, kneeling at his feet, confess all,  the past and poor Mark's share in it;  poor Mark who had met his death  in the waves.  "Ah, no, no, I can never reveal  that past, or even a part of it, lest  the terrible truth comes" to light  that I who was so soon to have bo-  come his brido was not Helena Cameron, but an impostor whoso very,  memory ho-would despise."  At that moment she hoard Herbert  Rcnwick's stop in tlio corridor without, and thrusting the crimpled noto  hurriedly into her pocliot sho turned  toward tho door.  Ho cried out in wonder and alarm  at tho white face sho turned toward  him; it was as palo and haggard as  if death itself had placed its ruthless stamp upon it.  "Aro you ill, Helena���������Miss Cameron?" cried Herbert, anxiously, and  in groat alarm. "You aro white to  the lips, and you aro trembling so  that you can hardly stand."  '"It is thc reaction caused by what  we havo gone through," sho managed to articulate, Jaintly.  "I might have known that it waB  too much for you to endure withouti  a reaction���������possibly a sick spoil,"  he answered, earnestly. "Oh, Helena���������Miss Cameron! why will you  Insist upon being left at this hotel,  among strangers, while my aunt  would so gladly receive, you?"  "I am not going to stay at this  hotel," cried Helena, flushing and  paling alarmingly. "I am going  away from hor without a moment's  delay, to some place at tbo further  end of the city. I���������I���������can not got  away too soon."  "Has anything happened since I  loft you a fow momontH slnco in this  parlor?" ho asked, quickly.  "No���������no," faltered Helena, growing more strangely nervous at ovory  panning moment; "nothing has happened, only T have changed my mind  about stopping hero."  "Vou have concluded thnt you will  allow mo to take you to my aunt's,"  ho oxclnlmed, btifvU-'ning up. "Khi������  will give you a hourty welcome.

Great Writer* Not Correct Wi-Mer-*'.
There is hot a single great author in
our literature in whose works numerous errors havo uot been pointed out
or thought to be pointed out. They are
charged with violating rules involving
the purity if not the permanence of the
language. A somewhat depressing inference follows from the situation thus
��� revealed. The ability to write English
correctly does not belong to the great
masters of our speech. It is limited to
the obscure men who have devoted
themselves to tlio task of showing how
far these vaunted writers have fallen
short of ftie ideas of linguistic propriety entertained by their unrecognized
betters. As a result of these critical
crusades there is no escape from the
dismal conclusion that the correct use
of tlie language is not to be found in
the authors whom every ono reads
with pleasure, but ls an accomplishment reserved exclusively for those
whom nobody cau succeed in reading
at all.���Professor Thomas It. Louns-

The handlness of the squirrel is

it and wards off a blow from another,
and squirrel quarrels rarely go further than attempts to cuff each other

she had contrived a little rack to be

and this was fixed by her window so
that she could watch the squirrels

���Mr. Theodore Young, a well-known
citizen of this place, is one of tho many
Canadians who have been rescued from
the clutches of tho much dreaded
liright's Disease, by Dodd's Kidney
Pills.
"For two years," says Mr. Young, in
relating his experience, "I was afflicted
with Bright's Diseaso. The doctors
told mo I could get no relief. My urine
was very dark and I lost considerable
blood, making me so weak I could
scarcely stand". I also used many medicines without getting relief.
"Hearing of wonderful cures by
Dodd's Kidney Pills led me to try them,
and after using the first box I found
great    relief. After   nsing    four
boxes I was able to go to work, which I
had been unable to do.for some time. I
recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills to all
who are afflicted as I was."

How tlie VestnI Virgins Were Honored by the Romans.
The principal wind deities were
Boreas, the north wind; Zephyrus, the
west; Auster, the south, and Eurus, the
east wind. The first was remembered
chiefly on account of a love scrape.
He fell In love with a" nymph, but
could not speak softly and found himself unable to sigh at all. Knowing
that it was impossible to make love
without soft speeches and sighs, he
was about to give up lovemaking as a
bad job and go back to his regular
business of blowing, but took advice
of an expert, who recommended him
to carry off the girl. He did so. She
soon got used to his blowing, and they
lived happily ever afterward.
Vesta was the goddess of life and of
home. Her altar stood on every
hearthstone; her fire burned on the
floor of every public building. Emigrants when leaving their country always carried with them fire from the
public hearth. The Vestal virgins
spent thirty years In service���ten In
learning their duties, ten In practicing
them, ten in teaching novices. After
this term had expired they might, if
they chose, leave the service of their
divine mistress or marry, but few did
so. Honors were showered upon them.
They rode In chariots, a privilege in
Rome accorded only to royalty. The
best seats In the amphitheater were
reserved for them. They pardoned or
condemned the gladiators. If a criminal led to execution met a Vestal he

Rapid Paper Making.
A London writer says that a Ger>

has just made an experiment to seg
how rapidly it is possible to transform
a tree into a newspaper. Three trees
in the neighborhood of his factory
were cut down at 7.35 in the morning
They were instantly barked and pulp>
ed, and the first roll of paper wai
ready at 9.34. It was lifted , into an
automobile that stood waiting and
conveyed to the machine room of thd
nearest daily paper. The paper being
already set, the printing began al
once, and by 10 o'clock precisely tha
journal was on sale in the streets. Thq
entire process of transformation had
taken exactly two hours and twenty
five minutes. " _

prefer to be useful to their fellow-
men rather than to make money is
constantly increasing. This passion
for good is the salt of humanity; it
is what makes us believe in the future
of the race.

Dear Sirs.���Your traveller is here today and we are getting a large quantitv
of your MINARD'S LINIMENT. We
rind it the best liniment on the market
making'no exception. We have been in
business 13 years and have handled all
kinds, but have dropped them all but
yours; that, sells itself; the others have
to be pushed to get rid of.

Incarnate TJinbrellaii.
We English, of course, get what w*
call hardened to horrible climatic
changes. Nevertheless I am convinced
that our solemnity of demeanor Is generated by our gray skies, our piercing
east winds, our heavy, yollow fogs and
our slushy roads and'pavements. Tho
waterproof face is tho direct result of
a firmament of load. Many of us English people look llko Incarnate umbrellas,���Loudon Queen.
Good Ilc-iHon,
Marie, who never knew hor lessons,
was speaking of ouo of hor llttlo
schoolmates, who always stood at the
head of hor classes. "I should llko to
bo tho father of such a llttlo girl," said
Mario's papa, wishing to point a
moral. "No, you wouldn't, pupa,"
, said Mario. "Why not7" asked papa.
"Bocauso hor fathor has been dead two
years," said Mario.

BABY'S SLEEP.
One of the first signs that something
is wrong with an infant  is  disturbed
sleep.   Usually the troublo. is with the
stomach or bowels.   If your little ono is
cross and restless do not give it an opiate or "soothing medicine" of any kind.
All theso things are deadly poison, and
tho sleep they give is unhealthy, unnatural and injurious.     Your baby   will
sloop and lot you sleep if you treat it
properly'.   In Baby's Own Tablets there
is not an atom of poisonous "sleopy stutf,"
and yot by their beneficent, healthy action'thoy give refreshing sleep.    Thoy
remove  the cause, and the result   is
healthy,   refreshing,   lifo-giving  .sleep
from  w..ich  the  little  oho   awakens
bright and woll.    Mrs. S. T. Douglas,
Petitoodiac, N. B.,   says:    "My  baby
was  troubled  with  constipation,   was
rest'loss and unoasy and did  not sleep
woll at nights.   I gavo him Baby's Own
Tablets and tho change tlioy mado was
wonderful.   Thoy regulated tho bowols
and he now sleeps woll at ni|?ht,"    If
your dottier doos not keep tho Tablots,
send 25o to tho  Dr. Williams Modicino
Co., Brockville, Ont,, and a box will bo
sent you by mail postpaid,

A Japanese woman flirts���ns far as
sho knows the moaning of the word--
with hor sloovr*;' and l'nn and not with
hor eyos and smiles. Hy tho different
inovoini'iitH of the ends of hor kimono
sleeves sho miinngos to convoy to hor
admirers nil sorts of unspoken nies-
sagi'si and by tho opening and shutting
ol' hor fun to Iho right or to tho left
sho can reject or accept tlio most
weighty oilers. Her oodo signaling
wllli her sle-ove-H and fan Is quito an
Item of hor social education.
*-        The Size of Eve.
Henrion, the orientalist, a Frenchman, was gracious enough to allow woman supremacy in oue respect at least.
With minute accuracy he fixes the
height of Noah at 103 feet, of Moses
at 13 feet, of Hercules at 10 feet, of
Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar
at 6 and 5 feet respectively and of
Eve at 118 feet 0.75 inches.
It is a refreshing thing, in a material age, to see people who are ambi-
'tious rather than rich, who are more
eager to help others than to make
money. These are "nature's noblemen, these are the characters which
enrich life, and which have pushed
civilization up from the savage to the
Florence Nightingales and the Lin-
colns.

"I consider Dr, Williams' Pink Pills

Montreal.   "Thoy restored mo to health

Many people arc'subject to periodical  attacks of biliousness, sick headache,  stomach troubles and bowel irregularities who do not realize that the liver is  especially responsible fortius suffering.

Nothing about* the manufacture of  butter is of greater Importance In its  bearing upon the quality of the product than the condition of the churn,  writes a Michigan dalrywoman in National Stockman.  Since the old time stone churn with  its dasher has been retired to give  piaea to th* modern one made of wood  tncrefl-'.iHl .--artfulness Is reaulred. else  oaensive odors caused Dy imperfect  cleansing appear which affect the flavor of the butter. In the first place, if  the churn is to be kept sweet and clean  it must not be permitted to stand and  dry out after It has been emptied of  buttermilk, but It must be cleansed at  once. Neither must the buttermilk be  left in it even for a short time, as wood  absorbs and holds tenaciously oil or  greasy matter, which speedily becomes  rancid, imparting a taint impossible to  remove by ordinary methods.  When preparing to churn, scald the  churn, which we will assume to be one  of the popular barrel forms. Cool it  with fresh water from the well and  pour in the cream. After the butter  has been churned and taken up dash  cold water into the churn to remove  whatever buttermilk may adhere to  the sides, then pour in boiling water  in sufficient quantity for the size of it  Put the cover in position and turn the  crank so as to dash the water violently from end to end of the interior.  The cork must be loosened to allow the  steam to pass off as soon as agitation,  begins and again after a few further  revolutions. Neglect to do so might  result in blowing out the cork. After  turning the crank for a minute or two  hook the churn and take off the cover.  With a stiff scrubbing brush reach all  places likely to escape the action of the  hot water, but never use a rag, nor  is it necessary to use soap or washing  powder of any kind. The hot water  cleanses and purifies, and all other detergents are best kept from contact  with any churn.  When the wator has been drained  away turn the churn bottom up and  hook it in that position without the  cover. Leave the cork out and thus  provide for a circulation of air, which  pravents-anything-like-mustiness-from  appearing. Never wipe the inside of  the churn. It will dry of itself after  the hot water is removed.  Silos In Summer.  The use of silage in summer to supplement short pastures or to take the  place of soiling crops is a practice  gaining favor rapidly as the price of  land is advancing and the scarcity of  farm labor becomes more and more  keenly felt It is much easier, quicker,  cheaper to go to the silo for a feed in  Ifasy August days than to go to the  field for a soiling crop. The silage ls  equal if not superior to soiling crops  for milk production.���������Bulletin Wisconsin Experiment Station.  Safest Guide in Da-fluff e. Cow.

C. McClure       ���������  Rosellan's father stormed In the time  honored fashion, her mother soothed  her a little and tried to soften tbe situation, but she agreed with her husband that their oue fair and cherished  daughter should not become the wife  of John Barry. The girl herself, flushed and lovely, declared that sho would  marry him, tliat she loved him and  that her life would be ruined without  him.  "But, my dear daughter," said her father, "John Is just out of colleget and  he has studied too much���������run all to one  sort of brains, and he's not fit to battle  with the real world. And, besides, he  is your.cousin."  "Four times removed," remarked the  girl quietly.  "But still your cousin," continued  the vigorous old gentleman, who hated ,  the thought of giving up his daughter  to any man, but had decided that she  must some time marry, and that tbe  man must be Gilbert Crane. "And we  all know that John has nothing in particular and that you have always had  everything you want."  ���������!I don't want anything but John.  He has himself, his ability," she put in  proudly. "We have cared for each other always."  "Oh, the ability to write a decent article or even a popular novel! ���������< What  does scribbling amount to? He has  nothing till that old great-aunt of his  dies." The father looked fondly at  the daughter, so like him In feature  and spirit, though what he counted  firmness in himself seemed rank obstinacy in her.  "Father," the girl protested, "I would  listen to you if you had advanced one  valid reason for separating us. He is  not cousin enough, to make one grain  of difference, and the fact that he Is  not well is only another reason why I  -ghP.ukL.gO-.-to__California with bim till  he is rested and can begin work on his  book." The old man drew the girl to  his knee, and the mother wiped her  eyes,  "Look here, child, we have a reason.  We have had a talk with John and his  mother, and Dr. Simpson. Tho plain  truth is that he has symptoms of consumption. You know what that may  mean"���������   Rosellan clutched his arm.  "It is not true! He would have told  me first of all! He is only tired out.  I will send for him1 and see, and if it  wore .true I should take care of him."  "You don't know what you are saying. Even if wo had so little sense, do  you suppose John himself would expose you to even a possiblo danger like  that?  He said last night"-  "I had a right to be there! And he  never let me know!"  "Walt, dear," said her mother. "We  lovo you too well to��������� John knows  bis duty. His going to California"���������  Bosellan sprang up and faced them.  "I shall go, too!" sho declared.  "Dearie," her mother spoke, "he left  yeu this le'tter.  He"���������  "Left me a letter! Why, where If  he?"  "He went to California tbli morning.  It was for the best"���������  "Without telling me or saying goodby? You must havo made him do this!  But no, you couldn't do thut! It ls his  own fault It meuna that bo���������doesn't  care as ho said ho did." She stood  looking at them.  "Rosellan," pleaded her mother, "hi  did the right thing." But the gh. took  John's letter from her father's band  and left tho room.  "Well," old Roger Howard said to h.i  wife, "It's hard on hor at llrst, and  John certainly did the square thing,  but she's young and tbo separation  may turn hor heurt toward Gllbort, as  we havo always plunned."  And I'ioaellan, tu Iter own room, was  reading her lovor's letter:  Xtosellan, doareBt, you know I love you.  That In why I am leaving you this way.

But all Jtoscllun said to hcr-ieif wus;  "IIo dor������a not lovo me or he could not  leave me."  Tbnt one wakeful night that follow  ed seemed to change ](������������chaa utterly.  She forbade her parents to mention  John's name tod seemed suddenly to  have grown from girl to woman. She  accepted invitations every where and  was welcomed as an acquisition at social functions, but beneath the blossoming brilliance lay an undoubted  hardness. She hated it all. Gilbert  Crane sbe ignored so absolutely that  sheer self respect obliged him to withdraw his wooing. Even her father saw  tbere was no hope for his cherished  plan. But this was not the worst.  Three or four months after John's departure Rosellan began a marked flirtation with Steve Golden, a wealthy,  dissipated man of forty.   He was evl-  dentlv Infatuated -**Mi the girj. and ah*  let mm follow her about till her father  remonstrated.  "Father, you put your hand on my  affairs once. I warn you not to do it  again."   And somehow he dared not.  Rosellan kept even her mother at a  distance and was in a continual whirl  of parties and dances, the gayest of the  gay, and Golden, confident and dashing, was always in her wake. He had  bought and was refurnishing one of the  handsomest houses in town, which further alarmed her parents.  One January afternoon Mr. and Mrs.  Howard returned from an afternoon  function to find their daughter stand-  Inar in the hull In her travel In? ault  "What is it?" they both asked in the  same breath. She handed them a telegram: *  Los Angeles, Cat.  Miss Rosellan Howard, Des Moines, la.:  Doctors have given me up. If you want  to see me, come. JOHN BARRY.  "You need not say anything," she announced, though neither of them had  spoken, "and if you want to help me,  mother, will you see that a few of my  things are packed? I shall start this  evening."  The train seemed to crawl; minutes  seemed hours and hours days. Plain  or mountain, stream or lake, the landscape seemed dull and dreary. The girl  lived years on tbe trip, and as sbe read  and reread John's farewell letter,  which she had kept, her resentment  and distrust died away, her girlish  faith in him returned, and she saw only  the real love and the self abnegating  honor of the man.  As the train pulled into Los Angeles  she remembered suddenly that she did  not know his aunt's street address.  How would she find him? Would she  be too late? Dazed and weary, she j  emerged from the car into the bril- I  lIaW~cnilOTniF^nshi"nTTmi~ftepp"d'  down, half blinded, into a crowd of  strangers���������and John Barry's arms. He  was brown, vigorous and smiling.  Quite unabashed, he kissed her, and  they seemed suddenly to be all alone.  "What does it mean?" she gasped.  He laughed.  "The doctors have given me up���������discharged me���������cured, of what I never  had, and I wanted you���������I"���������  "You might, have written and not���������  not frightened mo so." She choked  back the tears. "You knew I cared or  I wouldn't have come."  "I know, sweetheart. We will have  a wedding tills afternoon. I had to telegraph for fear you would havo ono  without me." She turned and looked  at him In astonishment.  "I didn't want Golden to get you,"  he explained.  J'Did you think ho ever would?" she  asked Indignantly. "I simply wanted  to bring father to his senses,"  "Well," John answered slowly, "you  succeeded. Just look at this." He  banded her a crumpled telegram:  Des Moines, la.  John Barry, Los Angeles, Cal,:  If you want to marry Resellan, for  heaven's sake do it before Steve Golden  does.  Thoy both laughed.  "You see," he said, "If I had started  te ge to you, you might hare taken  bim before I reached yeu, so I called  you across the continent, and Aunt Eu������  nice has divided up wltb me. She says  she would like to be worth at least  half as much to mo alive as she would  bo dead, so we can live horo."  Rosellan considered.  "John," sbe said softly, "I haven't ���������  white dross to my name."  THE FRIGATE  BIRD.  It Hcm the Greatest Wing PowM ef  Any Flying Animal.  It has been demonstrated that the  wing area of different flying creatures  varies from about forty-nine square  feet per pound of weight in tlie gnat  and five square feet in the swallow to  half a square foot per pound of weight  in the Australian crane. The frigate  bird has the most wonderful wing  power of any of the flying animals,  being able to cut the air at the rate of  100 miles an hour and live continually  on the w������.ng day and night for a week  or ten days. Ornithologists of note  even give it as their opinion that a  healthy individual of this species  would be equal to the task of making  a trip around tlie world without once  closing its wings in rest. It is also  claimed that some species can remain  motionless in the air for hours without  flapping their wings. That they can  exert three times the horsepower per  pound of weight tbat a man can and  about the same amount more than a  horse. It is, without question, a fact  that birds in general can exert physical energy that is without parallel in  nature. It is generally supposed that  birds are lighter, bulk for bulk, than  .other animals, but repeated experiments have proved that there are no  grounds upon which to base such an  opinion.  HOSPITABLE  FOLKS.  One Never Beholds  a  Small Dining  Table  In   Brazil.  The Brazilians are a most hospitable  people. Although they have large families, they take in all their stray, unfortunate relatives. It is not unusual  to find households of twenty-four persons or moro. Ofttimes the host and  hostess have no children, and the family is made up of sisters and cousins  and relatives-in-law. One never sees a  small dining table in Brazil. It is always a very long board in a very large  room. When it is not to be all occupied the cloth is spread only at one  end. No effort is made at artistic effects. Rigid rules for table deportment are not observed. You will not  gain the frowning enmity of your hostess if you splasb her table linen with  wine. If she notices it at all she will  -think-good-natured!y_that-these_things,  cannot be helped. ������   "  Bread comes by the yard to eat with  coffee in the morning.

TALE8 OUT OF 8CHOOL.  An Odd Prescription. <  Dr. William Osier, regius professor  at Oxford, in one of his lectures, recited  a quaint old cure for the gout���������a cure  from a seventeenth century mrdical  work, that was designed to show gout's  hopelessness.  "First pick," said this odd cure, "a  handkerchief from the pocket of a spin-  Bter of thirty-five who never wished to  wed; second, wash the handkerchief in  an honest miller's pond; third, dry it  on tht hedge of a parson who never  was covetous; fourth, send it to the  shop of a physician who never killed  a patient; fifth, mark It with a lawyer's ink who never cheated a client;  and, sixth, apply it, hot, to the gout-  tormented part. A speedy cure must  follow."

How Wily Indians, Under the Direction  of the Great War Chief Pontiao, Set  Upon Two Detachments of English  Soldiers, Killed Several and Drove  the Rcet Over a Precipice Into Niagara River.  Within shrapnel range of Queenston  Heights, where in the moment of victory Gen. Isaac Brock met death in  1812, there is, on the United States side  of tho Niagara River, a weird cavern,  which was discovered by La Salle in  1678, and where there was a bloodcurdling massacre of English soldiers  by the Seneca Indians under the direction of the great War Chief Ponttac in  September, 1763. The name Devil's  Hole was first applied to it by the Indians themselves, because they said it  was the abiding place of evil spirits.  By their own treacherous slaughter of  the white men there subsequently they  gave the place a title to the name.  Relics Found.  During the construction of the electric railway, which skirts the river  banks, various buttons, bayonets and  Indian relics, supposed to have been  left there at the time of the massacre,  were found among the rocks at the bottom of the cavern. The railway people  have caused a tablet to be placed there,  setting forth that on the top of the  cliff above the spot, on September 14,  1763, occurred the "Devil's Hole Massacre," ,where 500 Seneca Indians ambushed a British supply train, massacred its escorts and hurled bodies and  wagons into the chasm below, only  three escaping.  Tour By the Road.  But to get a clear idea of the story,  the visitor must stop off at Lewiston  and proceed along the ancient military  road to the cliff about the Hole. When  the French were in possession of the  country, they established a portage  from the present site of Lewiston, then  known as the Lower Landing, to Fort  Schlosser, above the great cataract  This road was used most extensively  in the conveyance of military stores to  the forts on Lake Erie, and in the neighborhood of Detroit, and the English continued the use of this road as a portage  when they became possessors of the  land by, right of "sword. Steam and rail-  -ways-have-decrea.sed_the_i;alu.6^jLihi,  road, but when the great Chief Pontiac  commenced his campaign against the  English, It was the most direct and only  highway of communication.  Guarded by Blockhouses.  Consequently, tho British officers established blockhouses at various points  along the road, hoping to be able to pro  tect the oonvoys of supplies that were  .expected to' pass along from attacks by  hostile Indians from the east. From the  west the white feared no foe. The'  channel of th������ Niagara River, formed  by a vast ravine, seemed ample projection from the encroachments of the wily  redskin. The depression known as the  Devil's Hole was a natural bulwark  against the attack of the strongest  enemy. At the lowest part, the preel  pice was eighty' feet high aiid the roar  of tho rapidly moving water below was  In itself terrifying.  The Attack.  But fhe English defences, natural and  constructed, proved no deterrent to thc  blood-thirsty Indians. Tho latter, however, evidently had no -appetite ter plunder or had mistaken the convoy, for  the objeot of their attack was simply  an assortment of empty wagons and  unladen mules, guarded by a sergeant  and twenty-four mm of the Eighth Reg  lment. On the thirteenth of September,  1708, this oonvoy proceeded from the  Lower Landing to Fort Schlesser and  on tho fshowing morning a start wan  made ea the Ill-fated journey. As they  were passing the brink of the Devil's  Hole, the dense weods en their right resounded with the rattle of rifle fire.  Bvory tree seemed to have a redskin  ned marksman behind It, In the cen  fusion following this unexpected attack,  the survlvers attempted te form for de  fence, but the howling mob of Indian!  Issued precipitately from the woods and*  charged with knlfo and tomahawk  Horses and men foil over tho preclpicr*  and wore dashed to death on the rocka  below. It was all ovor In a few minutes, the dusky murderers scali-fd  those who lay on tho road, and retired  as quickly as they came.

The young officers, unaccustomed to the methods of Indian war*  fare, and eager for the conflict, nes>  lected to send out scouts and flanking  parties. Into the veritable jaws of  death the soldiers advanced in close  formation. The first volley from the  rifles of the concealed Indians killed ot  wounded half the detachment, the others were despatched wiih knives and  tomahawks by the merciless warriors.  Every officer and all the men of tho  detachment, except about ten, wer������  killed, scalped, stripped of clothing,  and hacked about till their bodies wero  In many eases unrecegnl-sable.

One More On the Mosquito.  Technical foresight and"  mechanica3  skill have  scored  one  more,  and tha  vast New Jersey marshes, home of the  mosquito and refuge of malaria,   ar-a  to become valuable.     This has como  about through the invention of a ma*  chine which  makes    binding    twin������,  coarse matting, and other things, out of  marsh grass.   On these marshes grow  countless tons of this material, hitherto not considered worth cutting,   but  now to be worth several dollars a ton.  Karl YVessel,  a  graduate  of  German  technical schools, and a resident of St. y-  Paul, is the inventor;   and   his   machines will be put into operation next  summer in a New Jersey factory capable of  handling  50,000  tons.      This  grass grows all up and down the Atlantic coast from  New Brunswick to  Florida, and the machine makes it all  available for use.    At $4 per ton, the  grass will make the marshes valuable, ������  and in many cases will probably lead  to their being drained and reclaimed.  This will be good fortune  for everybody but  the  mosquito,  who  doesn't  seem to have much luck nowadays anyway.    The    steady    moving    of    the  marshes year after year, and the draining and reclaiming of them which wiH.  likely follow,  will  be  one  more  step  toward his extinction.���������The Technical  -Wofldr  i/  The Champion Vine.  The largest grape ! vine in the)  world is growing in 'the Carpinteria  Valley, twelve miles east of Santa:  Barbara, California, and is called La  Para Grande. It was started from  a cutting sixty-one years ago by a  young Spanish woman, Dona Ayala  It ls 8 feet 4 Inches in circumference*  at its base, and one of the horizontal  branches measures more than 3 feet  in circumference. The trellis covert  about a third of an acre, and sixty  heavy posts support it. Tho vine produces as many as 5,000 bunches an-*  nually.  Love From a Balloon,  The Swedish aeronaut, M. Frankel,  while engaged in an ascent found that  his balloon had sustained damage and  descended in -the'island of Oeland, says  Tho London Globe. The balloon came  do*yn in the park of a country house  occupied.by a large employer of labor,  who was then celebrating the sllve*  jubilee, of his wedding The unforeseen guest was welcomed, and between  him and the eldest daughter of his heat  there sprang up such a near approacls  ���������to love, at first sight that when th*  aeronaut left the pair were already e������������  gage*        Celors Attract Dees.
