Dominion Day was celebrated in  various ways by the jjood people of  Cumberland.' Early in the morning the guns o uld be heard at the  shooting grounds; where the devo  ites of trap shooting and their  friends; had gathered to carry out  the tournament. At 10 a.m. an  immense crowd, vf old and young  people boarded the* train for Union  Wharf, where the uuited Sunday  Schcols held their annual picnic.  Sports were indulged in at the  Wharf, and prizes awarded to the  succeesful competitors, and a most  enjoyable day was the result, 4the  tired and happy merry-makers getting home at 7 p.m.  At   8.30  a large concourse  of  people gathered ������t;the Hospital, the  fui.otion being the.dedication of the  new ward.   Mr Abrams, the presi  dent of the hospital board, slated  the object of the meeting, and called on  Rev.  Mr Christmas  for a  prayer.    A hymn was sung, and  tut'ii Mr McKuight, the chairman  of the Medical  Board,  explained  thai the waid had been fitted up by  the Foard,  to be m-ed exclusively  for wiiite patients jn the employ oi  the Colliery Co.  He stated also that  it had been the inttintion to opon  ihe ward on May|24ih, but owing  to the noii ariiyalof most pf the  furnuuie and fittings, the cermoay  had bt-en postponed until the pre  oent date.

He  took, pleasure in hthdiug the key if  the waid to Mr Abrams, so that the  ward   could   be Used if required^  Mr Abrams   in   replying gave a  short history of the Hospital  and  at ihe conclusion of hit* w������ll placed  remarks called  on  Rev.  Mr  Hall  to dedicate i he ward.   That pen.: ii-  man, paying.a warmtriliu e to Her  Majesty, after  whom  llie ward  is  named, and to the King, formal! \  dedicated the rooms to the ut^e intended.   God Save The King was  then sung and the crowd dispersed  Thanks were accorded to ihe baud  for their alendanre and their re  pertory of acceptable music,  At 10 p.m. the firework display  took place on the recreation grounds  and at a late hour our folk departed to their 'homes concluding one  more Dominion Day.

He was.the personification, of good form, from his smoothly parted hair aud boutonniere gardenia to his aggressively, correct patent  leathers. His well modulated voice  was as calm when he inquired for Miss  Carter as though he had called for the  menu at Sherry's. If he felt any trepidation over his impending fate, he  certainly showed none in his imperturbable manner. '.    '.  This balmy spring evening Bee had  determined that the stage setting for  her haughty refusal of this impassive  Englishman should be quite In keeping  with the tragedy of the act itself, So  she had directed Jenkins to send ber  caller to tbe Lilac walk, her own particular bit of bowery green in ' the  grounds back oftoer suburban home.  She had made; a studiously unstudied toilet on strict Melba at the spinning wheel models, Her simple white  gown shimmered in the moonlight  When she rose from the bench by the  ivy grown sundial, an English Importation, and came to meet bim, Mountby  thought he had never seen anything  more lovely. It made him think of the  rising of the evening star. But all he  said was a stiffly formal word of greeting and the old, old���������  .���������  "How charming you look this evening'"   ������������������:.-.  Bee hated the worhout phrase. It  -was-an-added-fillip-to_her_wrath,_and  she led him vindictively to his doom  under the budding lilacs.  . When it was over she beheld the Immovable, well bred face in the moonlight, no sign of any bavoc wrought  by her. She bade bim a curt g6od  night, to which hurt vanity and stifled  love and longing gave an added hardness.  As she turned toward tlie house and  looked up to the light in- ls*or mother's  room she longed to throw herself Into  that haven of refuge and burst into a  storm ot tears. Her mother's words of  the morning came back to her, "Tho  deepest love remains unsaid." Perhaps  after all be might have cared. Anyway she would walk for awhile under  the lilacs..

Then kissed it fervently several  times, and laid down again quietly  in tho bed.  I did not know whether I might  not hkve done wrong in giving it  to her. I felt pretty sure that Miss  Barbara would not have done so.  But still I believed that on the  whole, if I could only succeed in keeping her quiet in bed, I could not  be acting very unwisely.  The result proved that I wae right.  After getting her ring, Ellinor never  spoke again all night. I do not believe that she slept, but��������� at all  events she was perfectly calm0 and  free from excitement.  Meanwhile I sat by her bedside  -with���������an���������ever-increasing���������anxiety���������-of-  mind. It began to dawn upon me  that Ellinor was not so mad as her  lister supposed. Weak in mind she  undoubtedly was: the life of ut*er  seclusion and absence of occupation  which she had led for so many years  was sufficient in itself to have made  her so, but that she was actually  mad, or had ever been so, I began  to doubt entirely.  Thero was nothing in this last attack, severe ���������'as it hadboon,, to denote a deranged intellect. It spoke  rather of a diseased heart. And then  her whole, account of what had happened, and what she had seen, had  been so clear, and so succinctly and  Impressively related by her, that It  bore tho marks of its perfect veracity  upon the very face of it.  I did not believe now that Ellinor  had been under the influence of any  delusion. Sho had seen a man, not  as we had all supposed, outsido the  Windows, but inside tho house I  And that brought upon mo by do-  grcos a dreadful but overpowering  conviction.  Somo man or other had assuredly  occasionally concealed himself within tho house. Ho hnd /hot been thoro  for somo tlmo I believed���������not for a  month; but ho was hero now, undoubtedly, It wns Elizabeth who  had admitted him, and who concealed him; and It was in the lumber-room that ho was hidden; and  the man was Ellinor's husband I  What was I to do with this awful  conviction which now broko In'upon,  mo with unanswerable enrtainty ?  What would thin mnn do? Why hnd  ho hidden himself from us? If ho  wanted Ellinor, why did he not como  boldly forward nnd. claim hf*r?

These questions filled mo with horror nnd dismay,  I was not surprised when Vickers  enmo in in tho morning that sho uttered an exclamation 0/ dismay at  toy appearance.  "Oh! mlKs, you do look ill!" alio  crlod.   "Can I got you anything?"  "Got me    a cup   of ton,    Vickers,  please, and thon you may   take my ,  plnco for hnlf-nn-hoiir   whilst I   lio'  down   on the,  sofa,"   I   whispered;  fcr.H".

Poor Ellinor was seized with a  fresh attack of illness more terrible  and more severe even than the first.  She became first insensible and then  delirious. '   ���������'���������' ���������  Vickers and.I had enough to do  for many hours in attending upon  her. I had no time to think of anything else- ,       .    '  The -mystery of the man'who might  be even now in the house was a subject which I had no leisure, to in--,  quire into; for the present it must'  remain unsolved. ';'     .-:������������������'���������   ������������������  When" Ellinor recovered';.-!' slightly  from this second attack, ,she was too,'  utterly prostrated to be able even ta  move, far less.,speak. I believed myself that she must be dying,-she lay  so perfectly still and motionless.  At six o'clock in the evening, to  my unspeakable relief and thankfulness, Miss Barbara came home.  CHAPTER XXVIIIj  Not that.day, nor for many days  '.'afterwards," not indeed until all our  uncertainties and anxieties were set  at rest forever, did I Impart to  Miss Barbara the full extent of my  fears and fancies.  It would have been but cruelty to  add. to her misery by doing so. In  rnewer to her hurried auestione  when she first returned, 1 merely  told her briefly that Ellinor had  been frightened, and fancied she had  seen some one in the passage, and I  was careful to make light of the  cause of her sister's illness,' as the  actual anxiety over her condition  was already almost as much as .she  *was able to endure,  For Ellinor was frightfully, ill after that, so ill that a. doctor from  York was sent for, who gave but  l-little-hopes���������of���������her- -recovery-������������������He-  came and shook his head,- and looked solemn; wrote a few prescriptions,  took his guineas, and then went his  ,,\vay, leaving us to a blanker despair  than we hod felt before his arrival.  For many days Ellinor Iny thus,  upon the borderland of the Kingdom  of Death, and .none could tell whether she would not soon overstep  the narrow line, and be lost to us  forever. Every morning we said to  ea-h other: "She cannot live till  night," and every night we marvelled that she wns still with us. At  last, although there was no sensible  improvement, the bare fact of her  being alive began to give us hopes.  Perhaps it was thc reviving influences of the warm, spring; air, stealing  in through the white curtains that  shaded her open windows, perhaps it  was the ceaseless assiduity of her  sister's nursing, which flagged neither dny nor night, or perhaps it wns  simply tho elasticity of a naturally  strong constitution. Be that as it  may, Ellinor lived,  Sho camo buck to as as it were  from tho edge of tho grave���������paler,  Win!-er, thinner than of old, but  still sho did tome back. And Miss  Barbara nnd I, with tears in our  eyes, kissed each other and thanked  God with, trembling joy that it was  so.  The groat man from York camo  again, snifl that sho had had a miraculous escape, ami that ho had  hardly expected that f-ho would pull  through, "But mind, Miss Fair-  bank," he added warnlngly, "you  must consider her quite nn Invalid.

A mnn might have  I., en wiii.in the house, and Ellinor  11: jjht l'.������\e seen him, and in her be-  wiliii-ivd bruin he might have seemed  to lier to resemble . her lost lover;  aud all the true, the man might in  ijll jiri/babiliiy be meiely some nistic  MVii n who had set hia affect Luis upon  lh'ab, th,  the housemaid.  in any ca.se that damsel was hardly a fit "inmate for a respectable  .household���������h<;r previous experiences  iuihe 'Hui-.vay Inn" had not had,  evidently, a good eflect upon her  moral cliaructer. I determined, as  soon us Miss Barbara's mind should  . l.e- somewhat relieved of the load of  anxii.-ty concerning Ellinor, that I  would speak lo her, end ask her to  fend Eli/'abvth away, but I did not  lil-.e to woiry her whilst * hor sister  was.so ill.  Slowly but surely Ellinor recovered, and it was a singular feature of  hor recovery that she never, with returning-'..health and strength, made  the slightist allusion to her encounter with the man she had called her  htisbandJ. Either that meeting had  heVer taken place; or she ha'd utterly  'forgotten it. During her illness,  Miss Barbara had withdrawn the  wedding-ring from her linger; she  had made'no resistance at the time,  artd had not inquired for it afterwards^ Her memory, indeed, with  respect to many little things seemed  to be considerably impaired; she  had, for instance, forgotten' the  names of the servants, the time of  tho year, and many other equally  iijiiiu^ortftnt trifles. I could easily  'understand how it was that, after  the longer previous illness, Miss Barbara had been able to change their  ���������Wa surname from Fairfax to Fair-  bMk without her being in any way  aware of the alteration.  ]At latt, but not till the end of  May, when the summer roses were  -all coming out iii the garden/and  the hon.ysuckle was blossoming all  over the house-walls, Ellinor began  to come downstairs again, and was  laid upon the sofa forvhours daily by  the opejj window- of her own little  mormng-room. '  Miss Barbara resumed, to ft certain  extent, her usual avocations, and we  all began to shake off the heavy  gloom which hangs like a pall over  the household which is visited' by  sore sickness, " ���������  Now, I thought, I will speak about  -Eli/.abeth-s-���������dismissal���������to-TrMiss���������Barbara. But before T~had found an opportunity of doing so, bad news  again' found its way ,to Kaneton  Scars. "'  The brother's wife, Who had never  entirely recoverea froni the severe  illness for which Miss Barbara had  been summoned away before, now  sickened rapidly from some unguess-  ed-at after effect of that illness, and  died very suddenly at the last, leaving her husband and his six motherless children in a stato of absolute  despair. Miss Barbara was again  sent for, to go to be help and comfort of that stricken family.' And  once more I was left alono with  Ellinor. .  To say that I was not nervous at  being so left again would be to give  myself credit for more courage than  I have over possessed. I was .very  nervous, but, as tho days went by  peacefully; and happily, and nothing  unusual happened, only Ellinor became stronger and,moro like her old  self day by day! I began'to tako  heart, and wrote to Miss Barbara  that all was going on woll, and  that sho had no occasion to hurry  homo, but would do"woll to stay  with lier brother long enough to be a  comfort and n help to him.      ;  Of course thoro was now no 'question of taking wains upon , tlio  moors. Ellinor was not strong enough for walking. Thoro was a  light- Bath-chair* in which I usod to  wheel hor about the garden on sunny  mornings, stopping ovory othor minute by her favorite flower-borders,  that wo might load her lap with  lioajs of while, pinks, and cabbage-  roses, and long trails of yollow lab-*  urnum. And even this seemed almost too much for hor strength  somo days. When wo camo in Hho  would go back to her sofn, and lio  thoro quite (.'XhauKted, so still, nnd  whlto, and motionless, that us I  looked nt hor,'a vaguo apprehension  of evil would tight-n'at my heart.

Thin tiutfiil but entirely cosy  repast having ken cluuittl away, J  drew   my   chair   and   little     round  lame, with its shaded reading-lamp, i,  close in to Ellinor's sofa, and began ���������  my work. To this hour I can re-;  member tho pattern and design of '  that piece of work. It was for a '  cushion; yellow sil-k flowers and taw- j  ny brown leaves on a dark blue ',  ground. Ellinor watched every stitch ''  that 1 put in with intense imerest, .  and whil-t I worked we talked. |  The windows were wide open; it  had been very hot all day, for we  were in July; but now it was cooler,.'  and all sorts of sweet night scents  came '.rioating.. in through .the muslin  curtains which fluttered gently in the  tender evening breeze.  From''within the brightness of our  little room-the world without looked  dark and shadowy. It was nearly 1  nine o'clock; the birds .were hushed  and silent all but one sweet-voiced  nightingale'.singing high up in tho  elm trees behind the house. By-and-  by oven that too was hushed, and  wo heard no other sounds but our  own low voices.  "Wo shall have you out again on  the moors, Ellinor, by the time Bliss  Barbara comes back," . I remarked,  cheerily, trying for my companion's  sake to shako off I know not what  of strange oppression and presentiment of coming ev,il, which kept  creeping oyer me in spite of all my  efforts.  Sho   sighed   and   shook   her head.  Then presently she murmured,   more  to herself than to me:  '.   " 'The    end is come���������tho    end V is  come.   Behold it is come.      '  ������������������':.,'  "'The time is come, the day     of i  trouble, is near, and -not thc sounding again of the mountains.' "���������  "What do you mean, Ellinor?" I  said, irritably, for that dreadful  Scripture-quoting, trick of hers gave  me "the creeps." ,"What have those  dismal texts to do with our walking  on the hills?"  "I shall never walk on the hills  again," she answered, gloomily. "Do  you not hear what it says? Not the  Bound of the mountains again;' does  it v not mean that I shall never, be  out upon them again? It was in tho  chapter you read me this morning.  Do not scoff at Scripture, Freda; it  is a sign to me."  What was ono to do with a person  who had moods like this?. I shrugged my shoulders impatiently and  tried to laugh it' off; but in spite of  myself I could not help feeling oppressed too. "Was she right? I asked myself; was the end of her poor  troubled .life indeed very near, and  did she know it perhaps better than  we her watchers cou!craq?~neF"noxt"  remark was so grotesque a contrast  to her last, that I burst out laugh-  '���������ing: .  -"';..;:'  "You have got that brown silk on  the stalk of your leaf a shade too  dark," she obrerved quite gravely,  without apparently, the slightest perception of the incongruity of her  ideas.  "What an odd girl you aro, Ell}-  nor! A moment ago you wore applying the gloomiest of Ezekiel's  prophecies to yourself, nnd now you  are talking about tho silks in my  noodle-work."

"Do you know," she said, presently, after we had both been silent for  a fow minutes, each absorbed in her  own thoughts���������"do you know I feel  quito sure that I shall see my husband again before/1 dlo.

I said, half ashamed    of   my  folly;   ,(  But thoro was no answer. A death-  liko stillness was in the little rooni.  I crept softly to tho back of her  couch. She was fast asleep in a deep  sound slumber. It would do hor  good, poor child, 1 thought thankfully,' and drive away those ghosts  of the past that seemed all too  ready to persecute her this evening.  Very gently walking on tip-toe I  stolo round to the other side of her  sofa, making for-my scattered fancy-  work. I picked it up and sat down*  again in my place by tho little table*,  with the reading-lamp.       ...

JUST ONE MORE  DIRECTPROOF  The Latest In Massage,  "Feet massaged; 50 cents," is a sign  "hung in many of the uptown manicure  and pedicure parlors patronized by  women who0 have plenty of money to  spend. This charge/with $1 for finger  nails and 50 cents for cutting corns,  brings the cost of a"'treatment to $2,  which has long been a desideratum  of the manicure-pedicure. The whole  process takes about one hour. For a  massage the feet are first bathed In  warm water strongly, Impregnated with  sea salt. Five to "ten minutes of tills,  followed by a dash of cold water, takes  all the'soreness out. The chiropodist  then rubs in a pink paste, which looks  very much like the paste used for facial  massage in barber shops and which  consists principally, of mutton tallow.  Every bone In the foot, from the llttlo  "toe to the ankle bone, is squeezed, rub-  bod and patted.
