Shelton  They faced each other in a corner of  the vine covered veranda, Frost red in  the face and thoroughly angry, Miss  Sterling with set lipa and flashing  eyes. Beyond the stretch of well kept  lawn the lake shimmered in the July  sunshine and the leaves of the poplars  drooped dejectedly in the heat, but in  that particular corner of the veranda  where the two irate young people  glared at each other the atmosphere  ���������was that of bleak December.  "When I see you again," said Frost  curtly over his shoulder as he strode  toward the steps, "it will be when you  ���������end for me."  "And when I want you," the girl returned in a shaking voice, 'Til come  for you; I'll beg you to return; I'll  grovel at your feet."  Frost bowed,,, low, so low that the  ironic deference "made the girl bite her  lips.- Then he put his hat very firmly  to his unutterable jot and astonish-  ment'bhe was unhubt.  on bis bead and marched down the  path between the rows of laurel trees,  his broad shoulders stiffly erect, his  head very high and his faith in women  badly shaken,  Before he had reached the street be  .was telling himself he was many sin-  conceivable kinds of an ass, and a  if ague desire to go baqk to her'took  possession of him, but this course was  out of the question, and he strode sullenly up the street, bolstering up his  pride with such snatches of the conversation as he could remember.  MIsb Sterling, standing, white and  shaking, by the veranda rail, watched  him go down the path. She was well  aware that Frost was tbe sort of man  who lived up to his word. She had a  promonitlon that if he left In this way  It would be forever. She gripped tho  rail, and tier breath came fast Something like a panic must bare seized  her, for when bo was far down the  path she called: "Sid! Oh, Sid!" But  In such a "weak volco, which ber prido  ���������was striving mightily to suppress altogether, tbat Frost did not bear It  ���������nd kept on his way without so much  ti turning bis bead.  Even whon he reached tho street and  Was lost to sight behind the high hodgo  sho still stood there by the rail Sho  was angry witb Frost for going away  and angry with herself tor sending  him.  She* sank Into a wicker chair and  ���������tared helplessly at tht lako, which  ���������blmmored In tbo heat Thero was a  auspicious blur before ber eyes. This  would never do, she told herself, What  ���������bo needod was action. Sho roso with  a view of seeking tho links and playing  twice around tbe course. Sho was  halfway down tbo path when she saw  HJggtna, tho groom, coming up tbo  drive,  "Higgins," sbe called, "you may put  tht cob in tht trap."  "Bog pardon, mum," Higgins de-  murrod, "but tbe cob's green and ain't  fit for kfllcrj firiv!**,', rr.uia."  Miss Rt**rHn*** -"tnTtipod her toot.  "Tho cob in tbe trap, Higgins, I  ���������aldl"  Higgins made his way to tht stable,  mumbling under his breath, but flvo  ta'atJtca later tLc trap Wuu at tic door.  "Miss* Sterling climbed In and took tbo  reins. Higgins/ let go the cob's head  and by dint ot a wild scrutnblo managed to land in tbt trap ns tho cob  bolted for tbe gate. Tbey toro down  tilt driveway nnd swung Into tlio ttroet.  Higgins, his dignity by this time fully  recovered, ant Itoalde Mln*" Ptcrllng  witb folded arms und Impassive- face.  They drove around the lako at a  rtckiess pact. Tbt girl gavt tht cob  bU head, and tbt cob mado tbo most  if his opportunity. Tboy bumped over  stones tnat nrcea me groom a roc;  from thOjSeat and swung corners that  sent the trap on to one wheel. Higgins covertly watched his young mistress' face and prayed mentally.  On the other side of the lake a cool,  wooded road branched from the lako  drive. Miss Sterling swung the cob  into this, and for the first time in his  ten years' service Higgins took the initiative in conversation.  "Beg pardon, mum; the road's not  safe, mum. They do bo rollin' ii with a  road roller."  Miss Sterling smiled grimly.  "So much the better," she said and  flicked tht cob witb the whip. The cob  responded with a. Jump that bade fuir  to dislocate Higgins' neck, and the  trap went tearing up the road.  ���������     ��������� ���������       ������       *       *       *       ���������  When Frost left the house he walked  aimlessly around tbe upper end of the  lake, reviewing mentally every word  of the quarrel. On the far side of the  lake he paused before the little wooded road that branched off the lake  drive, and because the little wooded  road seemed to offer the peace and  quiet he sought he turned into it and  walked leisurely through the mottled  shadow cast by the branches above  his bead.  He had proceeded a mile or so when  he came upon the steam roller bumping and scraping over the broken stone  with which the roadbed was being repaired. For .lack of better occupation  he perched on a neighboring wall and  watched the roller wending its ponderous way back and forth.  He had been there perhaps an hour  when he heard the whir of rapidly  moving wheels. He looked up to see  a well known trap drawn by a sprightly cob come smartly around the turn  of the road. In an instant all was confusion, for the cob at the sight of the  roller stood erect on his hind legs.  There was a little feminine shriek and  a howl of fear from Higgins. The laborers on the road yelfed excitedly.  The cob came down on all fours  *again and plunged madly into the wall  close to Frost's perch. The trap reeled crazily. There was a sound of  smashing spokes. Miss Sterling was  tossed from tbe driving seat into a  clump of bushes, and Higgins sailed  over the wall like some ungainly fowl.  'The cob kicked himself clear of the  wreck and galloped snorting up the  road.,    '  Frost ran to the,girl and lifted her  from the bushes. To hia unutterable  Joy and astonishment she was unhurt.  All at once he fell to laughing happily.  "See here, you've come to me! You'va  groveled at my feet!" he cried.  At that, moment Higgins crawled  painfully over the fence, his hat gone  and his tousled hair bristling witb burdock burs. ,-.'  fi'He ain't no ladles' horse, mum," be  began in deprecation. j  Miss Sterling, supported by Frost's  arm, laughed lightly.  "Higgins, he's a dear," she declared.  Something from Frost's pocket was  ���������lid deftly into Higgins' palm.  "The cob, mum?" Higgins inquired  Ingeniously.  Whereat Frost laughed Immoderately, and Miss Sterling Hushed,  Colonel Bunker's  War  Talks  He Relates Reminiscences of Charming  Interest���������His   Many   Narrow Escapes.  ~"~***"*"   (?  ^/ to the wah," said Colonel  I Bunker as he finished his  cocktail and slowly lighted a  cigar���������"a long ways, suh, and we who  fought it are about ready to lay down  our knapsacks. I'm not bringing up the  question of whether the struggle was  right or wrong, but I'm sorry for the  brave men who fell in the ranks.

I could only take his words as  an imputation on the military sklllVof  the gallant General Lee, and almost; as i  Boon as he had uttered,, them my glove  struck his face and I asked him to-  name the time, place and weapons.

"That put a, different look on matters, of co'se," said the colonel, "and  after some further conversation tho  duel was declared off. As a man of  bonab I bad taken tbo majab as be  said; as a man of bonah he bad said  ono thing and meant another, General  Leo sent for me, but what passed between us I shall bold sacred���������sacred as  tlio grave. Don't,you think smoking  conduclvo to thirst, sub?"  After tbo colonel had put'In eight  minutes assuaging tho dryness"of his,  throat bo plckod up tho romnant of bis  cigar and continued?  "Egad, sub, but glvo a man a reputation as a duelist and bis work will  be cut out for him, It soon became  noised about thot I bad brought Majah  Goldwin to book, and I had scarcely  beon promotod to a lioutonant colonolcy  whon Adjutant General Graham of tho  Third corps took opportunity to criticise tbo way I led my mon Into action  at Glendalo.

Wo woro about  to placo oursolve-4 on guard when the  ���������djutant Btepped hack and said: ,  " 'Colonel Bunker, I am hean at your  service���������at your service, suh���������but as a  man of honah I wish to make an explanation. At Glendale you waved your  sword five times around your head and  called upon ypur brave men to follow  you. I wa������ under the idea, suh, that  the tactics called for seven waves, and  hence our dispute and this meeting.  Last evening I looked up the matter  and discovered that we were both  wrong. It was six waves of the sword,  Colonel Bunker���������six waves and a determination to conquer or die.'  "Well, suh," said the colonel as he  slowly pushed the ashes off his eigor  with his finger, "as we were both  wrong and as we were both men of  honah the only way to do was to  shake hands over' the matter and become reconciled. I was pleased and  yet not quite satisfied. I had determined to pink the adjutant, suh���������to  pink him in the right shoulder���������and I  felt that I had surrendered a privilege.  The credit of calling him out was mine,  however, and I could not fail to observe that I had gained a point or two.  Fo' weeks later I was a full colonel.  You can draw your own inference, suh  ���������your own inference. I observe tbat  it ls now 3 o'clock in the evening. It  is my usual custom at tnis nour���������mat  is, at 3 o'clock in the evening"���������  There was no reason why his usual  custom should be broken in upon, and  after it had been "duly repeated he  gracefully crossed his legs and musingly observed:  "I should have killed Colonel Hop-  son, suh���������killed him stone dead at the  first fire but for an unlooked for interruption. At the battle of Manassas I  had three horses shot under me���������three  horses, suh. A year later one day  while conversing with Colonel Hop-  son on the incidents of the battle he  turned and said:  " 'Colonel Bunker, allow me to tip my  hat to you, suh. You had eleven horses  shot under you at Manassas, and yet  you took it as a matter of co'se. You  are a chevalier of old, suh���������a chevalier  of old.'  "'Only three horses, Colonel Hop-  son���������only three,' I replied.  " 'Eleven, Colonel Bunker.'  " 'Three, Colonel Hopson.'  "And thus we disputed, suh. The  colonel had somehow got the number  of horses at eleven and wouldn't give  up, and of co'se I stuck to three.

For Centuries the Property of tht  Ancient Guild Known As the Glover Incorporation, It Is Known  Wherever the Waverley Novels  Are Read���������Dates Back to the Sixteenth Century���������Its History.  A tenant is wanted, as a local advertisement announces, for a house that  is known wherever the Waverley  novels are read���������the house of the Fair  Maid of Perth. For centuries the  property of the ancient guild known  as the Glover Incorporation, it now  belongs to the Perth Corporation, and  the tenant sells curios and keepsakes  to make up the rent/besides charging  a small fee to visitors. The narrow  street, at the corner of which ��������� Simon  the Glover and his fair daughter arer  reputed to have lived at the "end of the  14th century, is the Curfew-row that  retains its name to this day, though  all the old buildings, from the adjacent Blackfriars Monastery downwards, have long since disappeared.  A charter of William the Lion, of  the year 1210, prohibited foreigners  outside the burgh from buying or selling hides or wool except in the burgh,  a reference to the Glovers, who were  skinners and dealers, in wool and  hides. But it was not until four centuries later that an authentic document relating to the Fair Maid's house  was signed in the form of a charter  conveying land to the Glover Incorporation. The Glovers turned the  upper storey of the house into a common hall, which served as their placo  of meeting until 1787. They sold tfod  place twico and bought it hack, and  finally,the Corporation purchased and  kept it.  During repairs in 1863 the skeleton  of a tall man was found between two  stone floors, the victim of some deed  of blood in Stuart days. "A number of  years later the historic tenement was  let to a tea merchant, who used it as  a store.

It was then restored and made  Into a show place, after the fashion of  Burns' cottage near Ayr. There is a  niche in.the wall outside where tradition sa*y&the curfew bell was placed.  The Fair Maid's houso is so indissoluble associated with the Glovers  that it "may be of interest to add a  word concerning them, They wero  the chief local traders as far back as  the 13th century, and even earlier, and  under them Perth became famous  throughout tho kingdom for its gloves.

GENERAL HOUSEWORK.  Why It Suit* Some Servant* Better  Than Special Work.  The woman who keeps but one servant generally has more difliculty in obtaining her than the woman who re-  quires^ two or three, each specialized  along certain lines, such as cooking,  chamber work and waiting.'  Apropos of this it is interesting to  note in the Bulletin of Household Research an Interview with applicants  for genera] housework, which brought  out the following facts explaining the  preference of a very few women for  general housework rather than for special work:  The general girl has more time to herself than the girl who specializes, because few families who keep but one  girl expect her to answer the doorbell  tn the evening, so the day's work is  practically ended with the washing of  the dinner dishes. One girl, who seemed to have thought the matter over,  said that people who could afford only  one girl "belong to the class who have  6 o'clock dinners, so that everything is  out of the way by 7:30 o'clock."  Employers are now allowing general  girls every Sunday afternoon and every Thursday afternoon as well," while  If there are several girls in a household they have only every second or  third Sunday, according to the number  of employees.  It was also alleged as an advantage  that the general girl is more independent and that she Is sure of a room to  herself, while in more complicated  households the girls are obliged to room  together.  LADY FINGERS.    ..."  Thomas W. Lawson was once visit-)  ed in his Boston office by a young  woman who came laden with all sorts  of college dipomas and gilt edge references. It so happened that Mr. Law-  son needed a temporary secretary,  and engaged her on the spot. When,  later in the day, the young woman  handed Mr. Lawson a number of let-  ters that he had dictated, that were  chiefly remarkable for their hideous  orthography. He called the girl's attention to her blunders, whereupon  she replied with a giggle: "Really,  now, I think I must have been bewitched." "Quite so," said Mr. Law-  son; "some fairy has evidently cast a  bad spell over you.'-  They Wake the Torpid Energies.���������  Machinery not properly supervised  and left to run itself, very soon shows  fault in its working.

Minard's Liniment cures Garget    In  Cows  James Dalryi&ple of Glasgow, the  expert on municipal street car ownership, was comparing in Cleveland  the public with tbe private operation,  of water supplies, gas works and kindred utilities. "When private hands  take hold of these things," said Mr.  Dalrymple, "they run them beautifully at first. The people at first are  highly pleased. But with time's passage the popular pleasure wanes; it  changes to vexation and to bitterness;  and tthat," said Mr. Dalrymple, "reminds me of a recent happening in  Glasgow. "There was a Glasgow  man ,to whom his wife said: "'Donald, next Thursday is Helen's birthday. She will be eleven years old.  Give me a little money, please, to  get a birthday present for her.' "The  man, as he took out his purse, said  querulously: "'How the deuce are  you able to remember so exactly the  dates of all our children's births.'  '"Easily enough,' the woman answered. "Our first child was born on  January 17, and on that day you gave  me a necklace of diamond and rubies.  Our second was born on June 2, and  on that day you gave me a needle  case worth sixpence. Our third child  was born on October 27, and that  date is firmly fixed in my mind  through a terrific rumpus that you  made about a milliners bill.

Brad obeyed the command promptly  ���������without looking to see whence It came.  That much he had learned from his lifo  Jo the west. But as his eyes found the  beautiful face beyond the firmly held  rifle barrel his hand dropped Involuntarily to his hat to remove It. As it did  so there came a sharp report and a  ���������tinging sensation in his arm.  "That will convince you I mean what  I say,", came sternly from the girl.  "Now up with your hands again, quick!  Tbe next time I shall not aim to firs  between your arm and head, but to  Wit."  Brad smiled grimly. Evidently the  midden motion of his arm had caught  *4he bullet which was merely intended  to graze it, and from the excruciating  gain and his inability to raise the arm  ���������from its limp position at his side he  wr-alized that the bone was shattered.  "Throw them up," repeated the girl  Bmpatiently, "or I shall shoot."  "No need for that," drawled Brad,  "(for I could have drawn and used my  "revolver before this. Just you tell me  ���������wliat to do, and I'll do it. No use monkeying with the 'bands up' business  any more."  He waited stolidly, half expecting  another shot, but it did not come. The  ���������g-hrl was looking at him undecidedly.  "���������Well," she concluded at length, "I  fion't know as it is really necessary for  Tour hands to remain up. I am not  afraid. In spite of what you say I  ���������eould kill you half a dozen times before you eould draw and level a weapon. In all fairness I advise you not to  make the attempt. Now remove your  revolvers carefully, with the muzzles  toward the ground, and drop them beside your rifle.

Many a man and woman here  blesses them for aches relieved and  health restored.. Take for instance  the case of Mrs. Thomas Rumley.  She says:���������  "I doctored for years and did not  seem to get any better. It seemed to  be my kidneys that was the trouble  so I thought I would try Dodd's Kidney Pills and they helped me very  much.  "I cannot say how many I have  taken for my house is never without  them and whenever I don't feel right  I take a few. My husband also takes  them once in a while. I find them a  splendid medicine to have handy."  Dodd's Kidney Pills are the greatest  family medicine of the age. They  can be taken by young or old with  perfect safety. They cure all kidney  ailments, and nine-tenths of the sickness of the present day springs from  bad kidneys.  once -"-nought of the half breed being  the thief.

"You  can hardly realize what a home will  mean to me." He turned his face  away, conscious that a soft flush was  coming to her. But she did not appear  angry. Presently he felt her hand slipping into his.  we're strangers ana I've never been in  the country before.

But there's another thing I'd like to  ask"���������after a longer pause���������"did you  ever hear of a man shooting through  his pocket?"  Receiving no answer to this, he continued coolly: "You see, folks out this  way have to get into habits like that.

Powell-Cotton had  some unique experiences during his  twenty months of travel in little known  districts in Africa. In telling of the  superstition of the natives he says:  "Among the week's washing I had  given my boy a vest, which when the  other things came back was missing.  He made some excuse about mending  it, and I thought no more of the matter  till in the early morning I happened to  catch sight of two of my men bringing  It back from the direction of a Swahili  trader's camp. Some time afterward I  learned that the trader was regarded  as a great worker of charms. The vest  had been taken to him, and he had  been asked to cast such a spell over it  that when it next touched my skin any  desire I might harbor of going far  afield would melt away. When the  charm was of no effect the explanation  given by my men was that before leaving England I had acquired witchcraft  potent enough to render their magic  powerless."

When Lady Davy was advanced In  years there came to Rome a very foolish Russian on whose credulity his  friends used to practice. Among other  things they informed him that there  had till shortly before been in the city  an English lady at whose house her  friends used to assemble. After her  death they found it so inconvenient to  lose their point of meeting that they  had her embalmed and placed every  evening on her accustomed ottoman.  As he became very anxious to assist at  one of these strange reunions, some one  agreed to take him there. When he arrived, there, sure enough, sat the shriveled old lady.

Many of the cures brought about by  Dr. Chase's Ointment are so much  like miracles that people can scarcely  believe them. When Baby Millar became a victim of eczema her parents  did everything that could be done to  get her cured. Three doctors tried all  the means in their power, but without success, and then all sorts of  remedies were used, wiui the vain  hope that something would bring relief from the disease that seemed to  be burning up the living flesh.  It was not until Dr. Chase's Ointment was used that relief and cure  came. This case is certified by a  prominent Sunday school superintendent of St. Catherines.  Mrs. Wm. Millar, St. Catherines,  Ont., writes:���������"My daughter, Mary,  when six months old contracted eczema and for three years this disease  baffled all treatment. Her case was  one of the worst that ever came to  my notice, and she suffered what no  pen can ever describe. I had her  treated by three different doctors, but  all to no purpose whatever, and all  sorts of balms, soaps and lotions were  tried with no beneficial results.  "Finally I decided to use Dr. Chase's  Ointment, and to my surprise she began to improve immediately, and after regular treatment for a time the  disease of so long standing completely disappeared. As that was four  years ago, and not a symptom of this  distressing ailment has ever shown  itself since, tho cure must certainly  be a permanent one. At the time of  this cure we were living in Cornwall,  Ont., and the doctors there feared if  she was not cured of Eczema she  would go into a decline."  Mr. S. Richardson, jun., Superintendent Christ's Church Sunday schol,  St. Catherines, Ont., writes: "I am  acquainted with Mr. and Mrs. William  Millar and believe they would not  make any statement knowing it to be  in any way misleading or untrue."  rue."

The crowd of admirers of Shakespeare in England is a largo one, and  perhaps that is one reason why there  is a division in the councils over the  best way to erect a lasting and a fitting monument to his memory.  "Shakespeare week" is a festival season recently established In London,  and it ls none too long In which to  hold the world's attention upon the  man whose Influonco upon the world's  thoughts Is uocnnd to none.

Australia got confederation too early. In Canada confederation came a^ the result of a deadlock, which, being broken by compromise, resulted in a united whole.  In Australia confederation was due to  agitation. As an evidence of how  forced must have been their confederation, as the capital of the country  they had named a placo with one  hotel and ono house.  1 He could not remember tho name of  it.  So far as her constitution is concerned, Dr. Montagu������ was afrai-d that  Australia would have to    recast it.  UNIQUE AZTALAN.  St. Catharine's Canadian Club recently listened,to an address by Hon.  Dr. Montague on the study of Canadian History. In part tho doctor  uaid that what Canada haB wanted  through all its history is a strpng  Canadian sentiment, and we cyhnot  have Canadian clubs throughout the  country without maintaining and  sustaining that sentiment. "Referring  to tho example of Japan, he said,  her success to-day was due to hor  systematic teaching of patriotism ix.  every department of her educational  system. Canada has sadly lacked ik  this respoct; the patriotic sentiment  has not been-B\iffieiuntly developed ia  this country. Happily this is passing  away. Canadians were beginning to  pay more attention to their country.  Patriotism is growing in Canada. Ho  liked tho spirit that influenced that  old patriot to say "My country may  she always be right, but my country  right or wrong."  Of the Canadian population 87 per  cent, are native born. That was a  tnarvolous compliment to our national development, showing that tho  ���������development of Canada has. been  practically accomplished by Canadians themselves. Providence was  wise in allowing, this for there are no  persons like those to the manor born  who can so woll lay the foundation  of a country. In the great North-  West there are three Canadian born  citizens to one foreigner to-day,  which is a matter of congratulation,  as it ensures the future of our great  heritage. The speaker said he would  like to see established either by the  Government or by private subscription a chair for the study of Canadian history in our chief university.  This he thought was (necessary if  patriotism was to be fostered, and  made to grow in Canada.  Some say there is little of interest  -ln���������ther-hisfcer-y���������of���������������anadaT���������but���������-he-  wished to argue against that   view.  Was there hot something stirring in  tho story of the sturdy pioneers who  camo hero and hewed out homos   in  the wild country?   Was there no Interest in tho    history of the United,  "Empire   loyalists    who   left    their  homes aci oss tho lino and came   to  I Canada because thoir loyalty to Britain would not 1*1   them remain un-  dor a foroign flag?   Then thero was  jthe story of Lasallo and his voyagers  who forged their way westward, nnd  tho   story of   Canadian   boys   who  fought   and    died    at    Queenstown  Heights or who gave up their lives  In South Africa.   Was there nothing  in the story of our commercial   and  political development,    which would  provo   an  Interesting   study to tho  Iboys and girls who hold tho dostiny  of   this grand   Dominion    in   thoir  hands?     '"Surely,"    remarked    the  speaker, "it would bo a sourco of interest and wonder to our boys   and  girls to learn of tho wonderful development of'"their country.  Yet if you  ivlsit our itfiblicV   school to-day   you  will find    thafrrvory    llttlo is boing  'don������ to instil prldo of country  ana  pride of possession into tho minds of  our boys and girls,"  Dr, Montaguo   spoko   of tho   pro-  Judlco which oxists in England   and  Scotland    against Canada, and   mo  ' said ho was of tho opinion that this  projudico would novor    bo dlstiolvod  . until wo thoroughly informod tho old  country pooplo   regarding our country'! wondorful' poaslbliitlos.

In many respects Aztalau, in Wisconsin, is among the most remarkable prehistoric monuments in the northwest.  It is the only brick walled town site  found in this country. It is on the bottom laud of the Crayfish river, about  two miles from Lake Mills. The inclosing walls of the town site are about  700 feet ou its flanks and about 1,500  feet long. Tho river served to complete the inclosure of seventeen acres  of land.  Within and without the inclosure  there are round, truncated and obloug,  mounds. Just beyond the inclosing  walls the laud rises abruptly over  twenty feet to the rolling table lauds  of the surrounding country. From the  bank above a stone could be tossed into the town site within the inclosure,  which would seem to be a good reason  why this Inclosure, which has beeu  called a fort, could not have been intended for a defense against any human etfeniy.  Along the brow of the higher land  Is a row of more than thirteen round  pyramidal mounds ranging from threo  to twelve feet in height From the top  of these mounds or standing on the  table land an enemy could command  the whole town site. It has always  been conceded that Aztalau was not  inclosed for purposes of defense. It  has been supposed that it was walled  for protection from wild animals,  though the inclosure has never been  high or abrupt enough since its discovery to keep out the panther, wildcat, wolf, bear, moose aud buff alo, which  were the only dangerous animals of  the woods hereabout.  The-purpose of its inhabitants in  constructing this inclosure over a half  mile long still remains a mystery. The  most remarkable art of Aztalan is its  brick walls and walks. In this it is  singular and alone, the only example  of bricklaying among all the monuments of the mound builders. These  bricks or bricklets< are not rectnngu-  lar and regular iu form and size, as are  the modern brick. They are simply  balls of, plastic clay weided by the  hand into small bricklets of irregular  form about the average size of a snowball. The material used was the  glacial yellowish red clay of the vi-  MOTHER OF A. GREAT, HOUSE.  Dowager Duchess of Abercorn, Queen  Victoria's Oldest, Friend.

Japan's Population.  The population of Japan totals at  least 5,000,000 more than that of Great  Britain. If you include Formosa and  the other annexations the Japanese  people numbered 46,500,000 six years  ago, and they were then increasing by  nearly 500,000 a year. Japan also has  some very big towns. Tokio has a  population of about 1,500,000, Osaka  between 800,000 and 900,000, and thero  are about 20 others with a population  of ww* than 50.003.

E. Gladstone's Last Days.  Seven years ago writes an English  correspondent, ��������� I was at Hawarden,  where the mau who had kept the"soul  of England alive was passing gently  into rest, "His family all kneeling  around the bed on which he lay in the  stupor of coming death, without a  struggle he ceased to breathe. Nature ,  outside���������wood and wide lawn and  cloudless far-off sky���������shone at her  fairest." I, have quoted the words ia  which with solemn music ^r. Jtlorley  records the death of William Ewart  Gladstone. Beneath the window of the  room where.he lay dying I saw qn the'  previous day a gardener with a scythe -  *--m"6wi"i*������g"tfc^  ���������it was a type of that reaper whose  scythe was in his hand ready to rob Ua  of our hero.       t ., >  'The world had'been watching-round  Mr. Gladstone's deathbed, and surely  never was the majesty of death illuid-  ined with nobler pathos. The little village hummed with the advent of  strangers eager to chronicle the smallest, events of the moment, but all was  still and dignified within the home of  the dying statesman. Six days before  the end, Lord Rosebery and Mr. Mor-  ley had taken their last farewell'of  their leader and friend "in the largo  upper chamber looking to the sunris-  ing where the aged pilgrim lay,"  Youth, happily only partially conscious  of its coming loss, in the person of  sweet little Dorothy Drew, reriiinded  us of the. Grand Old Man's own heart  of childlike faith. The last timo I had  seen Mr. Gladstone, his little granddaughter was by his side; now sho  was losing her best playmate, and tbo  world its most strenuous fighter, and  the two were one.  After this lapse of time I think I  may reveal the authorship of one of  tho most touching articles which ap--  poared during Mr. Gladstone's Illness.  It gave the Invalid and his family  much satisfaction when thoy learned  who had written It. Tho article was  published in the "Outlook," and was  founded on the message which Mr.  Gladstone had uttered as ho was leaving Bournemouth on his way homo to  die: "God bless you and this placo and  tho land you love," was the benediction which gave the theme to tho "Outlook" article, Mr. Georgo Wyndhanv  wrote, tho article, anrl n finer pleoo of"  unaffected eulogy of a groat man I do  not wish to read.
