It was while the brig Daisy. Captain
Josiah names, master, lay at Tort au
Prince, after loading up. that a redheaded j-irl came aboard to secure passage to Boston. She had gone to the island from Salem two years before with
an American family as governess, but
had become tired of it and desired to
get back to the United States. The wife
of Captain Barnes was aboard, and his
crew numbered seven men. Ho had
also taken as passengers two American
sea captains whose vessels had been
shipwrecked among the West Indian
islands. If it hadn't been that one of
the captains offered to surrender his
stateroom to the redheaded girl and
(Bleep iu the main cabin on a shakedown she could not have taken passage
by the Daisy. Indeed it was a close
���shave at best, as Mrs. Barnes, who was
fat. forty and plain faced, looked her
over and said to her husband:
"Josiah. she's redheaded,, and that
-means that she's giddy and sassy."
"Yes; she's got red hair," replied tlie
captain, ''but I don't see nothin' giddy
nbout her. She looks as sober as any
gal with any colored hair, and that passage money will come in handy for us.
She'll probably be seasick clear up to
Boston light and not eat $2 worth of
provisions."
"Well, we'll take her," said Mrs.
Barnes, with a doubtful shake of the
head, "but you see if it don't result in
a tornado, waterspout or calamity of
some kind. Redheaded girls are born
to make trouble." ;
A day later the Daisy weighed anchor and set out on her return voyage,
and the attitude of the redheaded girl
as she moved about was so demure that
the captain almost felt like patting her
on the head and speaking words of
sympathy   and   encouragement.     The
laughed and chatted and made eyes,
and Mrs. Barnes could not help but see
that her own captain, as well as the
two others, was more than interested.
She grew red in the face, and her blood
boiled, and as soon as the meal was finished and the girl had gone on deck, escorted by the two other captains, she
drew herself up before her liege lord
with folded arms and demanded:
"Josiah Barnes of Providence, what
did I toll you?"
"I dutmo," he absently replied.
"Don't lie to me, sir!   I told you that
DESPONDENT WOMEN
Find New Health in the Use of Dr.
Williams' Pink Fills.
A few years ago Mrs. James R.
Stuart, ot* Thorold, Ont., who is well
known to most of the residents of
that town, found her health severely
shattered as the result of an attack
o( anaemia. As told practically in
her own words, Mrs. Stuart says:
"My blood   was   turned   almost   to

  ..   _ _._.    water; I suffered from nerve racking
redheaded girl was an impudent minx. ' headaches,   and   the   least   exertion
,.un my  words uute coaie true.    *-.<.��.   would cause my heart to palpitate so
brig sailed at O^cTock futhe monTlngV
and the girl passenger did not make
her appearance at the table at-noon.
Mrs. Barnes' motherly henrt forced her
to look into the stateroom and offer her
services, but at the same time she was
secretly glat*. to find the redheaded girl
in her berth and apparently suffering
the pangs of seasickness.
Something like a surprise party awaited the dame when supper time came
even made eyes at you across the table." ��
"I���1 didn't see 'em if she did."
"You saw 'em and almost blushed.
Josiah Barnes, that girl has got to stop
or she'll get a piece of my mind that
will make her red hair curl. I won't
stand by and see no such chit make
fools of three or four men who ought to
know better."
The captain's advice was for her to
go slow, and he was glad to get on deck
and out of reach of her tongue.. That
was the beginning of things. That
night the redheaded girl walked the
deck with a captain on each side of
her.
Thenext day the "minx" got a. piece
of Mrs. Barnes' mind. It was a liberal
piece and ought to have brought her to
her knees, but it didn't. On the contrary, aftershe got fairly started the
redheaded girl got off three words to
the other's one and read hor a long and
severe lecture on minding her own business. In this lecture were included a
few observations on false teeth and
gray hairs, and when the battle was
over it was the motherly Mrs. Barnes
who, didn't know where she was at.
She tried to get even by calling her
husband into the cabin and telling him
what was' what and that she'd take
good care to see that everybody in
Providence heard of it, but his reply
was:
"It's all nonsense in your say in' that
I've fallen in love with tliat girl, but
I'm tellin' you that redheaded women
are just the nicest things out, and I
don't care who hears me say so."
Inside of four days tlie redheaded
girl was flirting with everything and
everybody clear down to the cook, and
of course jealousy crept in. The three
captains hurled sarcastic remarks at
Mcli_atkex._and-the mate and carpenter
violently as to render me almost
breathless. I wasted away in flesh
nnd often was so weak that I could
not walk about. I was under the
care of a good doctor, but as I was
not getting better, 1 grow melan-1
choly and despondent, and felt I was
:becoming a hopeless invalid. At'this
stage I was advised to uso l)y, Williams''Pink Pills, and I began takiiif*"
' thein, thinking it would bo a. miracle
if they ever helped n.e. To my great
gratification- when I had been using
the pills less than a month I found
my health improving. I. used about a
dozen boxes in all, and found -myself
enjoying once more the blessing" of
i good health. 1 had been reduced to
almost a skeleton in appearance, and
while- taking- the pills gained over
twenty pounds ��� in weight. I gratefully recommend the pills to other
ailing women."

had a glare in their eyes and a. feeling
of revenge in their breasts. Mrs.
Barnes tried again and again to stem
the tide, but in vain, and at length she
took refuge in tears and predictions.
The Daisy sailed on and on, and the
flirtations went on and on, nnd as the
brig crept up the coast Mrs. Barnes
"fell it. in her bones" that Boston would
novor be reached. The'redheaded girl
had brought disorganization from cabin to bowsprit and almost taken command.

"It is a terrible business," wrote
Lord Elgin nearly fifty years ago,
"this living anions inferior races. I
have seldom, since 1 came to the
east, heard a sentence which was, reconcilable with the hypothesis that
Christianity had ever come into the
world. Detestation, contempt, fero-
.city, vengeance, whether Chinamen
or Indians be the object. There are
some three or four hundred servants
���in this house. When one first passes
by their salaaming one feels, a little
awkward. But the feeling soon wears
off, and one moves among them with
perfect, .indifference,, treating them,
not as dogs, because^ in that case
one Would-whistle to'thorn and pat
them, but as machines with which
one can have no community or sympathy." Yes, it is a terrible business. .And now, for many genera-
*^tnT*^lKr**jiTTm-^
ber's of .our",fellow-countrymen have
. como back from co'ntact with "inferior races," bringing .with them contempt for tlto rights of. human beings
whom they deem. lo,wer than .themselves in the scale of humanity. And:
the poison has spread through all
ranks of society.
"What shall it profit n man if ho
shall gain tho wholo world, and lose
his own soul?" A nation, no loss
than a man, may ask the question.���

Tho largest stone ever known to
have been cut in tlie history of the
world was taken from the famous
old quarry of CAiiglcith, Edinburgh.
It was excavated ih November, 1823,
at tho time of the National Monument on the Culton Hill was in
course of erection'. It was 180' foot in
length and its size wus equal to the
depth of the .quarry nt thnt time, It
averaged 20 feet in breadth, whllo
its weight was ropiiU'd.to bo 1"),UUU
tons. Tho stone' was longitudinal cut
from a stratum of very flno lima
rock. The greater portion of this
giant rock went toward tho erection
ol, tho 'monument on Colton Hill,
(leorgo IV. heard about this stone,
and requested that part of it should
bo 80nt to Buckingham Pnlitco for
uso in connect.ion with hoiiio extensions being then cnrrlod out thoro.
This was forwitrdi'd by boat from
(I run toil. Thu twolvo finished columns of tho National Monument woro
nil built of Craigloith stones, each
block weighing from 10 to .15 tons,
If one goes back to tho old World

And Doris seemed tbe veritable spirit  of it all���������at least so thought tbe young  fellow watching ber from his seat under the great elm. But it was not till  6be was quite close to bim that sbe was  aware of his presence. The gay little  chanson sbe had been lilting ceased,  and tbe pretty, startled color deepened  in her soft cheeks.  "Bon jour!" she cried blithely and  paused in her Atalanta-like flight  "Mercy I What a morning to be poring  over a book! Why, instead you  should"���������  "I know!" He had risen and was  towering before ber, straight aud stately, a man with an air that was more  tbat of a soldier than a student. "You  think I should prefer to cultivate Dame  Nature."  There was a quizzical flicker in tbe  gray, black lashed, black browed eyes  that met her accusing gaze.  "If you will put down that book you  may walk with me'as far as the abodo  of Mrs. Melinda Parsons, who is expecting me this morning to write her  monthly. letter to her sou in the Philippines."  "The permission is tempting," confessed John Jardine, "but there is Fred-  die"-  "Ob, if you prefer Freddie's society  to mine!" The little chin with the dim-  pie wont up in the air.  "But I'm paid to teach your brother, Miss Ware," be hastened to explain. ���������  V-    ,  "And not to accompany tne. I quite  understand," And then, with much  dignity of demeanor, "Good morning,  Mr. Jardine." "  . "Good morning," he replied ruefully.  But tbe quizzical smile was dancing  -���������aKain_in_hls^hand|���������q*^eV������yes "as Miss  Ware Hashed open ber parasol, whisked  up the skirts of her embroidered ba-j  tiste and turned loftily away; ouly to !  pause when sheVhad taken a few steps '  and look back over her shoulder with  eyos full of infinite reproach.

"Oh!" she cried out suddenly and  turned very pale. "He is coming! His  lawyer writes lie is coming. Oh, I  didn't think he'd come for years and  years!" There was downright dread  in the eyes that looked piteously up at  ber companion. "Lord Lessington is  coming."  He   nodded.     "You've   never   seen  hlra?" be asked.    "He is old.  I suppose, and ugly and altogether detestable!"  "No. Oh, no. It was all arranged.  But they say he is young and good.  He is very rich, of course. I didn't  ftink I'd mind���������and now*." Sh>- rose  trembling. The tears brimmed over  and ran down the cheeks from which  the rose bloom bad faded. "He will  be here today, and I���������soon I will have  to marry him."  "You poor little thing!" The compassion in his voice thrilled her���������that  and something more. "Don't you know  ���������you do know, my darling���������tbat you  are going to marry me."  Then he had her in his arms and  was holding her close in their strong ,  and sheltering embrace.  For an instant or two she did not resist. The sweet shock of it all, the  sense of being protected, more than all  the ecstatic knowledge of her own  heart, overwhelmed her. His kisses  were on her cheeks, ber lips, and his  passionate words in ber ears.  "No, no!" sbe cried and drew away.  "It isn't right! I must marry Lord  Lessington. It was all arranged long  ago. I never objected.

'  He laughed, a low, contented, joyous  laugh. \.  "I will answer tbat ouly with you in  my arms.   Come!"  She hesitated. Aware of a bewildering sense of happiness, she still hesitated. But his eyes compelled her. She  took 'a stepV forward, and aga.in;vbis  arms infolded heiv It was -*\-itbVdVead  of the battle to be possessing her-that  Doris Ware heard thg first dinner bell  ^tha'trwening.���������-But*r|*g;as-a-determined-  young lady who, Uel|i^W head high and  went down the;stairway. to meet tlie  English nobleman whom it had been  decided should make her his'���������>wife.

"I am sorry to have to toll you, Lord  Lessington"��������� she began, but. the words  she would have spoken wero.',' never  said.  ��������� The tall, handsome man Jn evening  dress'had her held tightly to bis heart,  and the arms that closed around her  wore those that had keen hor refuge  that morning In the forest.

St. Fagan's castle in south Wales is  named, like the parish in which it is  situated, after one of the earliest missionaries to this island. According to  the Venerable Bede, St. 'Pagan was  sent to Britain by Pope Eleutherius in  the second century. Fox in his "Acts  and Monuments" records the settling  down in that part of Wales of a band  of teachers and preachers known as  Fagan's. The castle is a picturesque  mansion, with high gables, built within the walls of a castle erected in the  twelfth century by Sir Peter, de. Vole.  The parish is noted as being the scene  of a fierce battle in 104S between the  parliamentary forces under Horton and  the Welslv royalists, the latter being defeated, leaving I.fiOO killed ou the field  and 3,000 prisoners in tbe hands of the  enemy.  ,1   -   .     ���������.. .  Mr. nnd Mm. Neville Lytton,  It rarely happens, says The Sketch,  that the descendants of two famous  authors meet and marry. This, however, was the pleasant fate of Mr.  and Mrs. Neville Lytton. Lord Lyt-  ton's youngctst brother is, of course, I  tho grandson of the great Bulwer j  I..yt?ton, whose fame in English let- '  tors is now enjoying a revival, while '  his young wife> was Miss Judith [  Blunt, tho daughter of Mr. Wilfrid  and Lady Anne Blunt, and a descendant through her mother of the  great Lord Byron. The marriage of  Mr. and Mrs. Neville Lytton was a  great romance, and excited keen interest, both in this country and in  Egypt, where the youthful bride was  well known. Mr. Lytton was, at tlie  time he, became a benedict, only  just twenty. He and Mrs." Neville  Lytton, who is her distinguished  parents' only child, live in a quaint,  old-world place, Rake Mill, in Surrey. They are both devoted to outdoor life, Mrs. Lytton being, perhaps, one of the best horsewomen in  the kingdom. She also has a great  love of flowers and of gardening.  ,A I It tie Late.

Samuel Smiles, the celebrated author and moralist, who died recently, was one of those men who do as  much good in the world as many  geniuses; Almost invariably a genius is a specialist. He may be an  astronomer, a poet, a soldier, \yhat  not, but except in rare cases he is  one of them only. We call Herschcl  a genius, for example, but what influence on reader and writer has ho  had? Any inspiration that has  flowed from the heroic career of  Herschcl, into the lives of those of  us who are not astonomcrs, has been  by reason not of his achievements,  but of his struggles. To understand  his discoveries one must be an astronomer, but to be encouraged by  his gallant battle with circumstances  one needs only be a reader of Samuel  Smiles. lie had the Boswellian virtue of appreciating greatness, and the  most celebrated of his books teem  with helpful illustrations, snatched  from tho lives of a hundred men. Of  course, in "Self-Help," "Duty/: and  "Character" Mr. Smiles is not seen  as a great biographer. He is a teacher, a preacher, who finds his text in  the careers of the great. This is  what is meant by saying that Mr.  Smiles may have done more good  than many of the geniuses he speaks  about. They supplied the fact. He  was the middleman from whom thousands obtained it.  smiles' Kui-ly Struggla*.  The Apostle of Perseverance, as he  has been catted, gave the world "Self-  Help" as the fruit-of his ripe experience. He was a poor boy, who, by  diligence and self-denial, became  wealthy, famous and respected. Ho  was a success, in fact. Born in Hud-  dington, Scotland,in 1812, his early  outlook was clouded when he was 18  by thc death of his father. His mother was left to bring up eleven children as best she could. She struggled  bravely on, and was able to send  Samuel _ to Edinburgh University,  where he received a good education.  The young man, who, as a boy, had  -resolved���������to-become-a-doc-tor-,���������had-  never lost sight of this resolve, even  when circumstances seemed to place  its consummation beyond the bounds  of possibility, began to study medicine, livinp- with a frugality which  to-day would seem downright poverty. His ambition was realized in due  course, and for six years Samuel  Smiles, M.D., practiced his profession. Seeing an even more congenial  occupation in journalism, ho (abandoned medicine and ho'camo editor  of Tho Leeds Times. While holding  this position ho was offered an even  more lucrative post with, the Leeds  and Thii'sk Railway, and this ho accepted,-holding it until he took his  last position, that of secretary of  tho Southeastern Railway, This ho  held from 1854 to 18(36. TJo resigned  it after his fame as nn author had  been well established, and after ho  had acquired a considerable fortune.  Tha 'Stimuli.* Irom  Within.  "Solf-Holp," tho most famous of  Dr. Smile*' works, was published at  his own expense, though it is* snid to  havo mado tho fortunes of others. lie  wrote nearly a sc.oro of hooks, but  it is as the author of "Sclf-ITclp"  that ho holds a place, in English literature. Tho idea of tho book, tlv)  great point which Smiles wishes to  emphasize, as far as it, can ho summed up in a sentence, Is this: If a  man is to amount to anything in tho  world, tho stimulus must' como from  within, for unless it does, laws, institutions, friends, and schools avail  nothing. As it hits boon well expressed, "tho utmost that anything  external to ourselves can do is to  Hive us freedom to think and act."  This is a thought which, coined in  whnt ovor words yon will, has i\ true  ring about it, Smilon comes bnck to  strike this keynote a score of times  In his noted book, and In one place  presents tho Idea in thoso words: "H  In ovory day becoming mora clearly  understood that the function of r/ov-  ���������rnmont Is negative and restrictive,  bolng resolved principally Into tho  protection of lifo, llhorty nnd property. There is no power of law that  can mnltn the idlo mnn industrious,  tho shiftless man provident, or tlio  drunken' sober; though every Individual enn bo each unci all of theso  If ho will hy tho exorcise 0f his own  froo powers of action and HoU-de-  nlal."

Sir Joshua Reynolds  was convinced that by patience a  man might become an eminent artist. He added: "Whoever is resolved  to excel in painting, or indeed in  any other art, must bring all his  mind to bear upon that, one object,  from the moment that ho rises till ho  goes to bed."  Th������ Obxonrtt- Great Han.  Through the pages we get glimpses  of little known great men, such as  "a manufacturer of pots, named  Wedgwood." as the inventor of tin*  famous china described himself; of  '-"!,.vmnn tho artist, and his devoted wife; of Re' ert Dick, the Scott"-"*  baker, who' was perhaps' the greatest  geologist of his day. Smiles loved to  tell the story of some forgotten,  great man, of some fine business genius as great in his way as a poet  whoso fortune it is to bo known,  while the other remains a hidden  force to the end of his days. We hear  of the tremendous labors of men like  Palmorston and Derby. Russell and,  Disraeli, Gladstone and Bulwer, al*  V3-hour-a-day men. Harking back  again to the old text, wo have  Deaconsficld's famous saying: "We  put too much faith in systems and  too little in men." One cannot read  "Self-Help" without feeling that tho  author has proved his case, and that  "Heaven helps those who iieip tiw���������r  selves." All truth is not contained  in the book, to be sure, but at least  it teaches a great lesson, and tho  world is better because, it was written.  PAWKY HUMOR.

Here  are soma; of them:  . "Weel, Tarn, are ye gaun hame wi'  your wark?" was the invariable  greeting of a doctor to a tailor of  his acquaintance, when he met him  carrying a bundle. Onco the tailor  saw the doctor walking in a funeral procession. "Weel, doctor, are ye  gaun hame wi* your 'wark?" he asked.  ��������� Descanting' on the changes in life'  and" work brought about by time, a  farmer said:  "When- I was young, I used to  think my father hadna wuckle sense,,  but my sons look on mysel' as a  born eediot."  At a funeral in Glasgow, a stranger who had taken his seat in one of  -the���������mourning���������coaches���������ex-eited���������t-he���������  curiosity of the three other occupants, one of whom at last asked  him:  "Ye'll be a brithcr o' the corp?"  "No, I'm no a brithcr ,o* the.  corp."  "Weel, then, ye'll be his cousin?'"   ,  "No, I'm no that!"  "Then ye'll be at least a frien' o''  the corp?"  "No that cither.   To toll thc truth"  I've no been weel mysel', and as my  doctor has ordered me some carriage-  exercise,   I thocht   this wad bo the  j cheapest way to tak' it." '  He tells, for instance, of tho  Highlander who had been to Glasgow and seen that wonderful invention, tho telegra; h:  "What is it like?" his neighbor asked him. "If I trod on ma collie  dog's tail in Oban," said Jock,  "and it squeaked in Tombormory,  that wad do a telegraph."  Then there is the story of tho  blacksmith who said to his minister:  "Ah, sir, if yo was anco richt  drunk, yo wadna want ever to Lo  sober again,"  Old Kngluml UlmiypourlBc,  Tit by bitf, pnya tho London cor-  ivppiindent of The Yorkshire Tost,  thu historic old houses in Holborn  are disappearing, l-'urnivara Inn had  to lie.demolished a fow years ago to  iiuike way lor tho gigantic buildings  of the I'l'tidentinl Assurance Company.

H. LOVETT CAMERON,  A������tbw et **��������� W������rtk Winnlnf.M Etc.  CHAPTER XXXI.  I was* back again in Eussell  Square at Aunt Stilina's. Uncle Carr  Bat behind mo, as usual, grumbling  o over some defect in last night's dinner und ejaculating at intervals the  names of some ol" his favorite dishes.  Aunt Selina bustled about the room  in her rustling silk dress, with her  gauze cap-ribb*ns fluttering behind  her. I stood at my old placo by the  window, and looked out across the  Squaro gardens. Save for the fact.  that its stunted trees and shrubs  were no longer bare, but were now  thickly covered with dusty foliage,  V it might well be that1 the past eight  months had never been, and that I  was still the sad, friendless girl who  had wearily paced the dirty London  streets day after day, only last November, seeking hopelessly for that  hard and diflicult thing to discover���������-  employment for a poor gentlewoman.  Indeed, it was sometimes diflicult to  imagine that the past was not, all a  dream; that thc whole of my life at  . Kaneton Scars, with all its numberless terrors���������poor Ellinor's sad , lifo  and sadder doath, the return of Mark  Thistleby into my existence, and the  final clearing away of all that had  divided .us from each other���������that all  ���������. this had really taken place, and was  not a delusive dream of my imagination. I looked down instinctively  at my left hand, and there was the  glittering hoop of diamonds which  my'lover had placed upon my linger  as we parted, and I saw in. it the  glad confirmation of all my happiness; for Mark had gone abroad to  bring Bella home. It was better, for  all reasons, that we should be parted for a little while. Bella would  come home with him, and I should go  to her either in London or at Sea-  cliff; and meanwhile I am at Aunt   Sc-lina-'s-. ���������������������������. V - ; -������������������������������������'���������-���������  "Am I to understand, Freda," says  that lady to mc, stopping short in  her task of moving all the chairs in  the room into their stereotyped corners-���������"am I really to understand  that you are actually engaged to be  married?"  "'Yes, aunt; I.think thci;e is no  doubt about the" fact," I answered,  smiling.  ������������������ "Well, my dear, of course I am delighted to hear it, although you  might have consulted mo a little  sooner, I ���������think���������-I, who havo boon  like a second mother to you, my  love. Of course I feci a little hurt  that you should not have told me  anything about this���������this Captain  1 Thistloton, I think you said?"  "Thistleby is his name, aunt," I  answered, passing over the "second  motherhood" of the good lady with a  smilo. I knew my dear aunt so  well! As bettor days and good fortune began to beam upon me once  more, so also did Mrs, Carr. Sin-  was already kind nnd sympathizing;  she wailed only to hear tho detail!-;  - of my Suture husband's means and  expectations to wax nflVctionnto, and  perhaps even rapturously loving, io  me, according to what the figure of  those means might 'chance lo be.  "I could not tell you about it before, aunt, it is only Just set I led;  and oven now we do not wish it  talked about."  "Very Well, my love; but 1ell ino  nil about It now. Como and sit  down," She drew mo down to n \soi'u  by her side, and took hold of my  hand, patting it nlTcd Innately ns she  did so, "Till me when iho wedding  is io be, iny dear. How glnd I nm  that T have kept (hut pencil-colored  silk fill now!

"Another year!" exclaimed my  aunt, in horror, "What, on eitrih is  tlmt for, 1 should like, to know! Wluu  in Ihe world are \on going lo wait n  year for?

"Oh! dear, n.>, aunt.

Th-jro  is "Mary Carr's baby going to be  baptized next month; she has written  to invite me to the christening, so I  shall wear it them What is the good  of keeping it any longer?"  . "Well, 1 think you are quite right,  aunt, and it would be too grand a  dross for my wedding, .for I mean to  walk into church in my bonnet and  travelling-dress."  My aunt held i>p her hands in horror.  "Tt is downright wickedness, Freda,  that is what it is! to treat holy  matrimony in the way you do, and  to throw discredit on the marriage  service. I always hoped you were a.  good churchwornan, and knew the. im,-  portance of that i-oly ceremony; I nit.  you talk of walking into church in  that airy way in a bonnet, just :-is  if it was of no more consequence  than a pastry-cook's shop! But what  can be expected .if a girl wlio threw  over the best match in the kingdom  to marry a miserable army, captain  so poor you've got to wait a year  before he can scrape up enough money to take /furnished lodgings with!  T wash my hands oi' you, Freda. I dej  imdeod!"  I laughed.  "Mark is not'quite so poor as all  that, aunt; don't bo too unhappy  over my "fate. It 'is not because we  are poor that we are going ,to wait.  There are other family reasons which  I need not enter'.'upon. "We shall not  starve, at all events. "Urs.^rhistleoy  will take care of that, for ,i- she is  very rich," \  "Oh, indeed!" with an appearance  of roncwed interest; ''rich, is she"?  Well, my dear girl, J was just going  to say that I should do myself the  honor of calling ipon "Airs. Thistlehy  when sho comes back from abroad,  and, of course, love, I hopo you will  stay here until you can go on to nor  houso,"  So it was settled; and Aunt Selina  ended by    kissing    me affectionately.  Making friends  >;ilh  Mammon  was a  Scripture precept which    "Mrs.    Carr  "novor failed to act. up to,  Al] this time I had been longing to  hear tidings of itfr.

Hhu would  havo Interpreted such inquiries into a  wish on my part ro renew my en-  giigeinent with him, and would  have been quite capable of writing  'straight, off to make, overtures to  him upon the strength of it,  I hnd not forgol,ten that she had  I old inn that he lo iked ill nnd aged,  I. wondered whether it was my eon-  iliift In him whit'h hnd filtered him.

I hesitated no  longer, but got into the cab with  her, and we drove on.  When I came to be close to her, I  perceived that sbe was terribly altered. Her dress, no longer radiant  with bright colors, was shabby ' and  worn, aud her face looked old and  hagcard; there Were deep lines scored upon it���������lines of caro, and almost, as it seemed to be, of want  and poverty. I looked at her with  ama'/emcrit.  "V.hy 'has all the world turned  against you, Mrs... Featherstone? and  why do you "'.speak of being in a lodging? Why are you not, in your own  homo in Eaton Square? What has  I a poned to you? Tell me, for I  cannot understand."  "Do you not know?" she exclaimed, seeming to be much surprised,.in  her turn. "Is it possible you have  not heard?"  '".No; I have heard nothing," I answered, bewildered. "I have been  living,for months in a most remote,  out-of-Hie-world place in Yorkshire.  All my ft iends, and my old associations, have been dead and buried to  me���������I have heard nothing."  ,  "Then you do not know what happened to me last L'ecember? I  thought everybody knew it."  Just then the cab'drew up at a  door in a miserable, dingy little  back street���������we had arrived at her  lodgings. She let herself in by a  latch-key, and we went upstairs into what is called "the drawing-  rooms," Two wretched rooms, low,  dark, and dirty, opening out of each  otiioi* by the usual folding-doors.  There was the round table in the  middlo of the room; the tarnished  console,Vwith Its marblo top, opposite tho fire-place; the horse-hair sofa between the windows. On the  'mantle-place a case of dusty stuffed  birds, tanked by cheap china figures  of shepherdesses, under glass shades,  and a clingy gas chandelier hung  from tho smoky ceiling. I glanced  into the back room, through the  half-open door; it looked if possible  even more desolate and comfortless.  ."It is rather a change from Eddington, isn't it?" said my'Companion, with' a piteous smile, as' she  flung off her bonnet and sat down  Wearily,,in front of the -table.  All my heart went suddenly out ift  pity towards my':old enemy.  *    "'Dear   Mrs-;   Featherstone!"   I    ex-  '.'ciainiocl,  "what dreadful thing     has  happened to yotivy 1 am sorry,    in-  'tloeci, to~se*e you in suffir^^lTtc^Terl"  me what  calamity  has  brought you  -to this?" "������������������   > ..-���������  "I don't know why you should,be  sorry for me, Freda Clifford," she  said, looking, at mc -with a strange  mixture of defiance and deprecation.  "I dare say you will be glad when  you hear���������I know I should have boon  glad and triumphed if it had been  you���������if you had been the one that  had been humbled; and, God knows,  you have reason to hate me! So you  never heard that I left,, my husband  last .Hc'ccmber?"  "Left him?"  "\'ps; with another man. Po you  undeisiand? I ran a way from him.  JDon'-fl look shocked-, child; it's no  uiuoiinuon case, after nil!" and she  laughed a harsh, bitter laugh.  "Oh! Mrs, Featherstone, how sorry I; nm!   And ���������and���������the man?"  ���������'The man has now left mo.  will soy it serves me right, I  pose,"  "Mo will not mni'ry you?"  "Oh!'

How little ,1- had appreciated that  noble, heart! Whilst I had thought  myseli scorned, and spurned, and  dropped out of this lifo'forever, he  had been grieving over my disappearance, and longing to help me  and to befriend ino.

In no other country of the world but  this could one speak of the shipping  tonnage of an inland city, yet theii  fleets are one of tbe surest indications  of the growth and prosperity-of tbie  cities up and down the shores of the  great lakes. Curious fleets tbey are to  hear about, for among their largest  vessels is a flotilla of ferryboats. But  these are none of the wheezy, low set  craft tbat ply tbe rivers and harbors,  of the Atlantic coast, but huge, powerful, modern steamships built of steel,  nearly as big as an ocean liner aud  equipped for ferrying a whole freight  train of thirty cars, while a cabin 300  feet long has every up to date accommodation for passengers.  The largest and newest of these ferries are those which cross Lake Michigan from Milwaukee and Manitowoc  to Ludington, where they connect with  the easterly railroads., They were commissioned to give more direct communication than an all rail line can between the great northwest, where so  much of the foreign as well'as domestic  commerce of the United States originates, and the Atlantic seaboard, for  Lake Michigan so reaches down from  the Canadian line that crossing it by  ferry, even when freight and passengers are embarked, cars and all, saves  six or seven hours and hundreds of  miles of hauling over skirting it by  rail. That the advantages the ferry  brings to Milwaukee are very great is  self evident, for it puts the city, which  has already passed every other Lake  Michigan port in tonnage, including  Chicago, on tlie,, direct line acrossvthe  continent and so assures the growth'  of its traffic in steadily increasing proportions.  Among lake ports Milwaukee has  taken first place, with il shipping tonnage last year of 5,8.*j7.f)03, increased  from 4.090.484 in 1002. While the new  buildings erected in' the "Wisconsin  metropolis in 1003 were valued at  nearly $9,000,000 the output of Its  factories for twelve months rose to  $231,810,927.
