A wart on a lady's nose, or, rather,  Its unsuccessful removal, was the subject of an action brought in the Vieuna  law courts recently. Plaintiff was Frau  Ettinger, who consulted a Dr. Brauch-  bar regarding the removal from her  nasal organ of a too conspicuous excrescence. ���������  Dr. Brauchbar undertook to remove  the wart without leaving a trace, but  when the wound healed, it left behind  a tiny cross-like scar. The surgeon admitted having made a slight mistake  and advised a second slight operation,  which, he promised/would only leave  a little seam-like line. The second  operation, however, turned out worse,  and suppuration set in, resulting in an  ugly scar as big as a threepenny piece.  The lady, in despair, now consulted  Prof. Gersuny, who declared the case  had been wrongly treated from; the  first. He offered to operate again, but  without guaranteeing the result. The  result was nil, and the blemish remained.  .', After consulting other specialists,  who could suggest no cure, Frau Ettinger went back to her first surgeon,  who made three more attempts to  eliminate the trace of his first failure;  ���������but, alas! the scar now became the  size of a sixpence.  The lady then went to law, entering  a claim against Dr. Brauchbar* for the  -return of the fees paid him and ������160  damages. After some of the best-known  face specialists had been heard in the  case, the court decided that no guarantee could be exacted for the success  of such an operation, and non-suited  the plaintiff.

His feet and hands  were large, and his walk was singularly ungraceful. He always spoke quickly, in short sentences devoid of ornament, but to the point. A habit of "batting" his eyes added no little to tlie  peculiarity of his appearance. His  eyes were gray and ordinarily dull and  expresalohlcss, but when excited by  drill, which always seemed to rouse  him, especially when charges were  fired, the whole man would change, aa  if he were transported by the roar of  the guns to the exciting scenes of an  actual field of battle. ��������� Thomas M.

Shelton  Allen strode ncrqss the grounds in  the mellow wanntt of that early summer afternoon and sought his favorite  retreat���������a rustic ssat in tho shadow of  the beeches near fhe northern wail. He  opened a magazine he had borrowed  from the superintendent's office and  strove to interest himself in the pages,  but the articles seemed to be composed  of meaningless Jumbles of words, and  the illustrations seemed distorted and  unreal. He dropped the magazine with  a sigh and dosed his eyes. He was  very, very tired.  He was afraid, too, that Thompson  would come along and worry him  about the codicils of that will. Thomp-  Bon had been dead these five years,  and, moreover, those codicils had been  fixed to his satisfaction long before his  demise, but Thompson seemed totally  indifferent to the trouble he was causing. Instead of staying peacefully in  his grave be came poking along at any  old hour of the day or night asking  most absurd questions and making all  sorts of annoying suggestions.  Allen had spoken to the superintendent about Thompson that very afternoon. He had said pointedly that if he  were to stay here they must keep  Thompson out. The superintendent  had been very kind. He had assured  Allen the matter would be attended to.  He bade hiin worry over it no more.  And then the superintendent had looked at him pityingly. Allen was keen  enough to recognize tbe pity in that  glance.  It was strange that they should pity  him; everything was strange. Nothing  had been real since that day in the  courthouse when he was conducting  the state's case against the election repeaters���������when the walls bad caved in  so suddenly and he had felt the  strange, tingling sensations in his toes  and finger tips and some one had put  his arms about him just as the '��������� black-  ness had come on.  They told him���������the doctors and the  nurses���������that this place, where he had  awakened, was a private sanitarium;  that he was  overworked and  must  "If you would be so good," said he.  "I tried-to read myself, but somehow I  couldn't seem to grasp the thread of  things. 1 hope Thompson won't come  poking around," he added.  "Thompson has been forbidden the  grounds," she said reassuringly, and.  opehing the magazine, she began to  read in a sweet, low voice that soothed  Allen wonderfully. She read until sunset, and Allen, to has infinite joy, found  he could grasp the meaning of all she  read.  After, that they "met at the beaches  every pleasant afternoon. She always  broudit a book or a magazine, and Allen, seated on the ground before her,  found his interest in life returning.  Moreover, Thompson had ceased to  trouble him. He began to feel that  some time in the future matters would  adjust themselves properly. As to the  present, he was content to sit at her  feet and listen to. her full, rich voice.  One-afternoon when the reading waa  ended for the day and the sun made  long shadows of the trees Allen rose  and stood looking at her thoughtfully.  "You see," he said, "I don't know  whether you are real or only a phantom like Thompson, and so I may  speak freely. If you are reaL I lov*  yon. If you are unreal���������well, then I  want to stay here like this for the rest  of my days."  The girl flushed scarlet. She dropped  the book and fled across the grounds.  Allen stood watching her flight with a  puzzled frown.  "Suppose she Is just another, phantom like Thompson���������suppose she Is!"  he muttered, and the bare thought of  such a possibility made him sick at  heart  ���������        ���������        ���������   .    ���������        ���������,        ���������     '  e..  It came like a flash. Allen was walking toward the beeches one sunny afternoon when something seemed to snap  inside his skull. He stopped in his  tracks and stood for a moment dazed  and trembling. Then a great joy welled up In him. The numbing fog had  fallen from his mind. Everything was  perfectly clear now. It was all over;  he was a well man again. He could  take up his life where he had dropped  it.    -'  He made his way to the beeches and  sat down, but as he did so a, sudden  fear tightened his throat. How about  this girl, who had come to mean so  -much-to-him ?~-Wffs~sUe'"a~fearffy,~������5rr  had she been only an image of his tired  brain? Suppose the latter were the  case!  He heard voices and lifted his eyes.  Across the lawn the superintendent  was approaching, and with him was  the girl. Allen leaped to his feet and  ran forward.  "Thank God," he cried beside himself  with joy.  The superintendent looked at him  narrowly for a moment and then seized  his hand.  "Ah," he said, "I thought it would  come. You may well thank God, Mr.  Allen. It was a narrow escape from  permanent trouble."  He turned to the girl beside him.  "Oh, by the way-, Mr. Allen, this is  my daughter."

Why is the savory salted herring  upon which so many people banquet at  breakfast-time called a bloater? Likely enough the common or domestic wag  will be ready with the self-suggested  answer that it is because he bloats!  Well, Johnson and several other philologists define "bloat" as being "to swell,  to inflate," and herrings are certainly  not swollen by becoming bloaters; Indeed, the case is the contrary, a fact  which was put upon record early In the  17th century by the. poetaster Joshua  Sylvester, who, in his "Tobacco Battered," wrote:  .  . . herrings in the sea are large and  full,  But shrink In bloating.  The explanation is that salted herrings  are called bloaters because they are  "bloted"���������that is, soaked (in a picke of  brine, to wit); from the Swedish "biota," to soak. In the Swedish tongue  these prepared herrings are ��������� "bfc*t'-fisk"  ���������i.e., soaked fish! And so the irresponsible humorist of the breakfast-  table is pretty nearly right after all,  though, perhaps, without knowing it.  "Ananas."  Probably the earliest account we  -have-of-baffaTtia^~(OT^*SMn^"S~FlTey"  were at first called) is from the pen "of  Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, who, being on a visit to Hanover in 1816, sat  at a table where two of the fruit���������hothouse grown���������were produced at dessert, and she went inio ecstasies over  them, "They are," she wrote, "perfectly delicious. They are naturally the  growth of Brazil, and one  cannot, imagine how they came  here (Hanover), except by enchantment. Upon inquiry I find that they  (the Hanoverians) havo brought their  greenhouse stoves to such perfection  that they lengthen their summer as  they please, giving to every plant the  heat It would receive from the sun in  Its native soil.

The free end  of the rope is now pulled as tight as  necessary, the end of the rope Ls fastened in a simple manner  by  lapping,  it around a protruding cornstalk, while  the band is placed on the shock.   Instead of having' a hook on the rope one  end may be tied in the eye of the pulley and the other end left loose to be  inserted in the pulley each time the  loop is formed.

The other end of the  rope (D) may be pulled as tight as desired, and an attachment on the pulley  block holds  the rope from  slipping  while the shock Is being tied.   The  twine (E) is placed through a loop on  the supporting hook and carried around  ready for tying.  Where one man alone  must tie the shocks a compressor of  this kind Is the ideal one.

It consists of a sharpened round stick  with crank and handle and a wooden  washer through one end of which ths  windlass rope is conducted.

ROBKUT MILLER, STOtJFKVILLS, OST.,  Chairman of Record Board of National  Live Stock Association,  that there is always a demand for good  animals at handsome prices is fully  borne out! A good animal costs no  more to feed than an inferior one, and,  more and more is the farmer becoming  convinced of the fact that although  tlie initial cost of the introduction of  a pure-bred sire into a herd may bu  large that' th^l_imnrqyjjjijanLJesulting_  justifies the price paid in the corresponding increase in the herd value.

In my effort to obtain results whieh  seemed to me satisfactory 1 have endeavored t6 imitate nature as far as  niy limited knowledge gavo me a conception of ber methods and to improve  ou them where, in my judgment, improvement wns possible.  In observing'wild birds it lias seemed  to me 'that they bunt food **boiU nil  day long, and In my fancy 1 have  pictured them as often going to their  roosts at night with their hunger but  partly appeased.  Fowls will not exercise for the sake  of exercise. Given a full crop and they  will doze until hunger prompts them to  move. Tliis has been my experience  and the experience of all with whom  I have conversed on'the subject. Given  a mash in the morning they apparently  do not see tbe grain thrown in litter  ('or them to scratch for.   ���������  With my first lot of fowls I .���������followed  the beaten paths given in poultry literature of the day nnd fed "all they  would clean up quickly" of mash iu  the morning as instructed. "All tliey  would clean up quickly" bothered una  a bit, for I found their appetite** to  vary considerably, a pen of 12 fowls  cleaning up anywhere from one to six  pounds, so that when making the mash  I was at a loss to know how much'  meal,.to use. The noonday meal of  grain'scattered'in litter seldom interested them, and their scratching was hpna-  modic and rare. I changed the bill of  fare and fed them mash for the noon  meal and after awhile secured exerciso  in the forenoon. Another' change,- and  mash was fed at night and by this  method was secured constant exercise  throughout the day. This seems to me  more in-line with and perhaps an improvement on uature's way. A careful sprinkling of small quantities- of  grain in deeplltter during the day imitates nature in tbat -it 'compels the  fowls to seek for their food grain ly  t;rain, while the 'feeding of mash at  night ls the improvement on nature's  way, which insures a full crop daily  just before going to roost. I prefer  mash'to grain at night because it digests quicker, bringing birds from the  roosts the next morning with a sharp-  pti(^rappeTiTer^ni"^^  often but partly digested In the morning. One n!gut an accidental dropping  of grain after they had eatoh nil they  would of mash surprised me by causing the fowls to jump for It greedily.  1 thought It over and tho next night fed  about half of the quantity they cleaned up the night before, ihen gave an-  other portion nnd n third, w'th aliont  ten minutes' Interval be'weeti ���������������������������.���������ictt. nnd  noted tbey ate fully one-half tii'ii*" n  this way. Since then l hnve rep������������������uu-illy  tried feeding them nt once the full  cjiinnrlty tliey ate the night before, but  I never bad them finish it. in'uhort, by  feeding small quantities tit n time 1 wna  coaxing them to eat more thnn the.:  otherwise would.

The only question is as to how much tim������  each person puts in talking during each  day. Some men and women are situated  so that they camiot talk during the day,  exqept ot mealtime, on account of the  character of the work they have to do.  Tbere are others, such as traveling m.ii,  for instance, who depend upon talking for  a living. I have figured that the high  maiv, probably the traveling man, will  talk five hours out of every twenty-f >ur,  which would give him a total of 12 000  words every day. I have figured that  most any sort of man vvill talk as much  as ten minutes out of every twenty-four  hours, and this would give him a tutal of  C00 words for the day.  "These are tie two extremes.

CHAPTER VI.  HE lone pino stood in Browcr's  pasture,   just   clear   of   the  woods.    When the sun rose  one could see its taper shad  ow stretching away to the foot of  .Woody ledge, and at sunset it lay like  a fallen mast athwart the cow paths,  Its long top arm a flying pennant on,  the side of Bowman's hill. In summer  this bar of shadow moved like a clock  hand on the green dial of the pasture,  and the help could tell the time by the  6lant of it. Lone pine had a. mighty  girth at the bottom, and its bare body  tapered into the sky as straight as an  arrow. Uncle Eb used to say that  Its one long, naked branch that swung  and creaked near the top of it, like a  sign of hospitality on the highway of  the birds, was 200 feet above ground.  There were a few stubs here and there  upon its shaft���������the roost of crows and  owls and hen hawks. It must have  passed for a low resort in the feathered  kingdom because it was only the robbers of the sky that halted on lone  pine.  This towering shaft of dead timber  commemorated the ancient forest  through which the northern Yankees  cut their trails in the beginning of the  century. They were a tall, big fisted,  brawny lot of men who came across  the Adirondacks from Vermont and began to break the green canopy that for  <jjt.ges hud covered the valley of the St.  Lawrence. Generally they drove a cow  with them, and such game as they  could kill on the journey supplemented  their diet of "pudding and milk." Some f  settled where the 'wagon broke or  where they had buried a member of the  family, and there they cleared the forests that once covered the smooth acres  of today.  Gradually the rough surface of the  trail grew smoother until it became  Paradise road, the well worn thoroughfare of the stagecoach, with its "inns  and outs," as the drivers used to say,  the inns where tlio "men folks" sat in  the firelight of the blazing logs after  supper and told tnles of adventure until  bedtime, while the women sat with  their knitting in the parlor and the  young mon wrestled in the stable yard.  The mon of middle age had stooped and  massive shoulders and deep furrowed  brows. Tell one of them'lie was growing old, nnd he might answer you by  holding his whip in front of him and  leaping over it. between Ills hands.  There was a little clearing around  that big pine tree when David Brower  nettled In the valley. Its shadows,  whiffing in the light of sun and moon  llko the arm of a compass, swept the  spread Ing acres of his farm, and ho  built his house Rome forty rods from  the foot of It on higher ground. David  wns the oldest of thirteen children.  Ills father bad died the year before ho  camo to St. Lawrence county, leaving  lilm nothing but heavy responsibilities.  Fortunately his great strength and his  "Kindly naturo wero equal lo tlio burden.  Mother nnd children were landed safe-  ly In thoir new homo on Bowman's hill  tho dny that David was eighteen.  I havo lion ri I tho old folks of that  country tell what n splendid figure of  0 man lio wns (bono (lays���������six feet ono  In his stockings nnd broad ut the shoulder. Ills eyes wero gray and set under lionyy brows. I hnvo never forgotten tho big niMii Unit laid hold of mo  nnd tho broad, clean slinvon, serious  faco tlint looked Into mlno tlio day I  camo to rnrndlHo valley.   As I wrlto  1 enn soo plainly his dimpled chin, his  largo nose, Ills firm mouth Hint wns  tho key to Ills character. "Open or  Hliot," I hnvo heard tlio old folks sny,  "it showed ho was no fool,"  After two years David took a tvlfo  and settled in J'nrndlso valloy. Ho  prospered In n small way considered  handsome thereabouts. In a tow yonrs  ho hud cleared the rich acres of his  farm to tho sugar bush that was tho  north vestibule of tlio big forest. He  "ind aeen tho flo'iHnf* ���������"���������Men nn'M "ni*  cotlld dlseern the bare summit* of 1hf������  distant hills, nnd far ns ho could see  were tho nent white houses of the settlors, Children had come, threo of  thorn, tho oldest n Hon who hod loft  *hnmo  mnl   rt'eil   in   o   tor r*r,-,,.������>...  !',>i>������  Iioforo wo camo to raradlso valley, tho  youngest n ha by.  I could not havo enjoyed my now  homo moro If I Iind boon born In It.  I htd much need of n mother's tender  ���������mm. no doubt, for I remember with  ���������what n fcciiHO m pence und comfort I  lay ou the lap of I'.ll/.iibetli Brower that  first evening ntul iii-unl lier i-lngle-,- us  llie rocked, The littlo daughter stood  Mt her knees, looking down sit mo und  putting my bare too,*- or reaching over  to feel my fuce.  -���������urou sent nun to us, didn't he, mother?" said she.  "Maybe," Mrs. Brower answered.  "We'll be good to him anyway."  Then that old query cume into my  mind. I asked them if it was heaven  where we were.  "No," they answered.  " 'Tain't anywhere near here, is it?"  I went on.  Then she told me about the gate of  death and began sowing iu me the  seed of God's truth, as I know now  the seed of many harvests. I slept  with Uncle Eb in tlie garret that night  and for long after we came to the  Browers'. He continued to get better  and was shortly able to give his hand  to the work of the farm.  There was room for all of us in that-  ample wilderness of his imagination,  and the cry of the swift woke its' echoes  every evening for a time. Bears and  panthers prowled in the deep thickets,  but the swifts took a firmer grip on us,  being bolder and more terrible. Uncle  Eb became a great favorite in the  family, and David Brower came to  know soon that he was "a good man  to work" and could be trusted "to look  after things." We had not been there  long when I heard Elizabeth speak of  Nehemiah���������her lost son���������and his inime  was often on the lips of others. He was  a boy of sixteen when he went away,  and I learned no more of him until long  afterward.  A mouth or more after we came to  Faraway I remember we went "cross  lots in a big box wagon to tlie orchard  on the hill and gathered apples that  fell in a shower whon Uncle Kb went  up to shake them down. Then came  the raw days of late October, when the  .erows-w^ent-fly.ing-southwTard-before-the-  wind���������a noisy pirate fleet that filled the  sky at times���������and when we all put on  our mittens and went down the winding cow paths to the grove of butternuts in the pasture. The great roof of  the wilderness had turned red and faded into yellow. Soon its rafters began  to show through, and then, in a day or  two, they were all bare but for some  patches of evergreen. Great golden  drifts of foliage lay higher than a  man's head in the timber land about  tho clearing. We had our best fun  then playing "I spy" in the groves.  In that fragrant deep of leaves one  might lie undiscovered a long time. Ho  could hear roaring like that of water  at every move of the finder, wallowing  nearer and nearer possibly, in his  search. Old Vvei came genera lly rooting his way to us in the deep drift with  unerring accuracy.  And shortly wlntor came out of the  north and, of a night, after rapping at  the windows ond howling In the chimney and roaring In the big woods, took  possession of tho earth. Thut: wits a  tlmo whon hard elder flowed freely and  recollection found n ready tongue  nmong the older folk, and the young  enjoyed many diversions, including  measles and whooping cough.  nrelight. While we sat alone I plead  for a story, but tlie thoughts of Uncle  Eb had gone to roost early in a sort of  gloomy meditation.  "Be still, my boy." said he,- "an' go t'  sleep. I ain't a-gnin' t' tell no yarns an'  git ye all stirred up. Ye go t' sleep.  Come mornin' we'll go down t' the  brook an' see if we can't find a mink  or tew 'n the traps."  I remember hearing a great crackling  of twigs in the dark wood before I  slept. As I lifted my head Uncle Eb  whispered "Hark!" and we both listened. A bent and aged figure came  stalking into the firelight. His long  white hair mingled with his beard and  covered his coat collar behind.  "Don't be scairt," said Uncle Eb.  '"Tain't no bear. It's nuthin', but a  poet."  I knew him for a man who wandered  much and had a rhyme for every one���������  a kindly man. with a reputation foi  laziness and without any home.  "B'ilin', eh?" said the poet     ____]>  "B'ilin-," said fncie Eb.  "I'm b'ilin' over 'n the next bush,"  said the poet, sitting down.  "How's everything in Jingleville?"  Uncle Eb inquired.  Then the newcomer answered:  "Well, neighbor dear, in Jingleville  We live by faith, but we eat our fill.  An'   what w'u'd  we do  if  it wan't  fer  prayer? ������������������-  Fer we can't raise a thing but whiskers  an' hair."  "Cur'us how you can talk po'try;"  said Uncle Eb. "The only thing I've  got ag'in you is them whiskers an' thet  hair.   'Tain't Christian."  "'Tain't what's on the head, but  what's in it ��������� tbet's the important  thing," said the poet. "Did I ever tell  ye Avhat I wrote about the birds?"  "Don' know 's ye ever did," said Uncle Eb, stirring his fire.  "The boy'll like it mebbe," said he,  taking a dirty piece of paper out of his  pocket and holding it to the light.  The poem interested me, young as I  was, not less than the strange figure of  the old poet who lived unknown in the  backwoods ana who died, I dare say,  with many a finer song in his heart.  I remember how he stood in the firelight and chanted the words in a singsong tone. He gave us that rude copy  of the poem, and here it is:  THE  ROBIN'S  WEDDING.  Young   robin   redbreast   hed   a   beautiful  nest, im' he says to bis love, says he:  "It|sready now on a rocking bough  "LAST OF THE BARONS"  CHATTER VII.  f*** IF nil thiit long season of snow  \J J I remember most pleasantly  Uio days that were sweetened  wiih the sugar milking.

Owed His Surname to the Fact That  He Was the Last Member of the  Bar to Receive a Royal Patent as  Baron of the Exchequer���������Of Humble Origin Married Lady Diana  Beauclprk���������Was Cremated.  At last the ashes of Sir John Huddle -  ston, popularly known as "The Last of  the parous," have been consigned to a  tomb in consecrated giound in the  family vault of the ducal house of S'.  Albans at Bestwood, writes the Marquise de Fontenoy. For the last fifteen  years they have constituted in a silver urn one of the principal features  of the bric-a-brac that filled the boudoir of his widow at the Grange, her  pretty place at Ascot, near "Windsor.  At the time when Sir John married  the sister of the late Duke of St. Albans, Lady Diana Beauclerk, who had  been the most stately and beautiful of  all the bridemaids of Queen Alexandra,  nine years previously, she was 28 and  he verging: on 60, and in spite of his  great reputation for wit and culture it  was generally predicted that his union  to so high spirited and self-willed a  woman as Lady Diana would turn out  unhappily, owing to the great disparity  of years. In spite of this the marriage  proved a great success. Lady Diana  and Sir John became the most devoted  couple in existence, and when he died  his widow was unable to bear the idea  of parting from his remains, and so  had his corpse cremated and kept his  ashes by her in a silver urn until her  own death the other day. In this way  she seemed to have him always with  her, and when she left the Grange to  stay with relatives or friends she would  always carry the urn with her, and it  would occupy a place in her bedroom  or sitting room wherever she staid.  Fortunately, she abstained from traveling on the continent, so that the  question of getting the urn through the  foreign customs houses at the various  frontiers on the continent never arose.  Sir John owed his surname of "The  Last of the Barons" to the fact that he  was the last member of the bar to receive a royal patent as baron of the  exchequer, the title formerly given to  the $35,000 a year judges of the so-  called exchequer division of the Su-  .K"3ffla_G^rJt_Qf_Judlcature,,titles~which*  ceased to be conferred on the reorganization of the high courts of justice.  He was a man of relatively humble  origin, indeed,, entirely self-made, and  In his earlier days had earned his living as a school teacher. Lady Diana,  on the other hand, was both in appearance and In breeding one of the finest  types of the old English aristocracy,  and had in her veins a strain of royal  blood, being descended in a direct line  from King Charles II., and his favorite, Nell Gwynn. The latter, it may be  remembered, obtained the dukedom of  St. Albans for her illegitimate offspring  by suspending the infant by his shirt  out of the window of her house when  King Charles was riding by m the street  below and threatening to drop it, so  that it would have been dashed to  pieces at the feet of its royal fathor,  unless the latter consented to confer  upon it then and there the sumo rank  that he had granted to natural sons by  his other favorites,  Tho ducal houso of St. Albans in In  nowiso ashamed of this foundation of  Its honors, and a beautiful portrait of  Nell Gwynn, painted In tho last century, occupies tho most conspicuous  place at Bestwood among tho pictures  of tho ancestors and ancestresses of  the family,  Lady Diana's remains wero, In no-  cordnnco with her directions, cremated  the othor day at Woking, near London,  In the presence of a few relatives und  frlonds, and after tho ashes hnd boen  placed in a silver urn similar to that  containing thoso of lier husband, both  receptacles wero conveyed to the ducal  mausoleum at Bestwood, whoro they  aro placed sido by side on a marble  table.

The Catholic Church is, however,  much less strict about this than people  generally imagine, and only the other  day one of the most distinguished'generals of the German aimy, Gen. von  Xylander, was accorded full funeral  ri.es by tlie Catholic clergy.in Germany in spite of th^ disposal of his remains by cremation, in accordance with  his directions. Indeed, it is only since  1S88 that cremation has been prohibited  by the Roman Catholic Chuich, save  In certain cases, and among the principal reasons which prompted Leo  XIII. to tako this step was vhe fact  that incineration had been adopted by  th������ atheists of continental Europe as  a feature of their funeral rites for the  special purpose of giving a public expression to their disbelief In the doctrine of the resurrection. Leo likewise  took the ground that the ordinary form  of interment has been, so to speak, consecrated by usage ever since the foundation of the Christian faith, that it  has been accepted from tlmo immemorial as forming part and parcel of the  religious ceremonies of the latter, and  that the old fashioned form of Christian burial may be said to have become  one of the most solemn features of the  rites of the church, a consolation alike  to the dying" and to the bereaved. The  CatholJo Church, however, permits  creatatlon In cases where, owing to in-  *~~<0U1 1n*iaJ'*LtfltM*> the destruction el  the body by means of fire ls rendered  politic and also in certain other instances. . I may add that there are a  number of Protestant denominations,  including the Lutheran state churches  of Denmark, Sweden, Prussia, and  Wurtemberg,, which canonically prohibit cremation.  Of course the adoption of cremation  as the popular method of the disposal  of the dead among the English aristocracy has led to the abandonment in  a great measure of ancestr.j-| vaults and  in the transformation of the old family  mausoleums. Thus the late Lord Mon-  son constructed Immediately adjoining  the private chapel at Carlton in Lincolnshire a sort of columbarium of  carved ornamental stone bearing the*  Monson heraldic devices and arms,  which is destined to receive the urn or  silver jars containing the ashes of the  Monsons now living and as yet unborn.  It is something in the shape of a sanctified pigeon house, there being tiers of  pigeon holes one above the other. Each  pigeon hole, on receiving its urn of  ashes, ls hermetically sealed with a  pane of thick glass, while a brass  plate immediately below denotes the  name, and titles, and the other customary data concerning the person whose  _ashes_occupy_the_receptacle.~���������These-  cplumbarlums, in spite of their ornate  character, do not, however, inspire the  feelings of solemnity jpo^ised by old-  fashioned mausoleums," family vaults,  and stately ancestral tombs.  QUEER MANX CUSTOMS.V  Why   Natives   Ate   the   Meat   Before  They Supped the Broth.  Peculiar to Itself is the code of laws  of the Isle of Man. The laws'of England have never prevailed there, and  somo of the Manx enactments are very  curious. One of the earliest enjoined  "all Scots to avoid the land with the  next vessel that goeth Into Scotland,  upon pain of forfeiture of their goods  and bodies to prison." Anothor enacted that "Irishwomen loitering and not  working be commanded furth of this  Islo with as much convenient speed as  may be (1561). Tho first of these laws  was the result of a series of raids on  the Manx coast by a Galloway rover  named MacCulloch. It is said t]mt it  was at this period that the Manx custom originated of "eating the meat before they supped the broth," lest they  should be deprived of tho more substantial part by tho appearance at their  doors of this Scotchman and his crew.  About this time tho parish dorks woro  ordered "to stand at the church doom  at the time of service and whip and  beat all the doggs." During the seventeenth contury a law was mado that  "whosoever shall bo found or detected  to pull horso tayles shall bo punished  upon tho wooden horso of the parish,  thoroon to continue two hours, nnd to  bo wipped naked from tho waist upward."  Manx deomstors ��������� the high court  judges���������are still sworn, as they havo  boen for hundreds of yenrs, by the  following curious oath: "By this hook  and tho contents thereof, and by tho  wonderful works that God hath miraculously wrought: in tho heaven  abovo and In tho earth beneath In six  days and sovon nights, I do swear that  I will, without respect of favor or  friendship, loss or gain, consanguinity  or afllnlty, envy or mallco,, oxocuto the  laws of this Islo justly between party  ond party as Indifferently as the herring backbone doth lie In tho midst of  the fish. So help mo God and tho contents of this book."  Every woman, widow, or Bplnster, In  tho Islo of Man, whether she bo owner,  occupier or even lodger, enjoys the  franchise for the Manx house of keys  elections.

He is  ;at his desk at a little after ten, and,  with brief intermissions for meals, he  seldom    leaves  . before      midnight.  When an election is    pending,   and  close tab needs to be kept on public  affairs, he often stays until the forms  are made up for the morning paper.  Like Charles M. Hayes-, of the Grand  Trunk, work appears to be his pleasure, it only being in response to insistent and unceasing demands upon  his time that he   remains away from  the office..   Day aiid weeks of concentrated and unremitting effort And  him as fresh, alert and bright as ever,  while his staff, none of whom are his  equal in capacity for sustained high  pressure, are  fagged   out.   OnJy by,  systematic    thoroughness    in   doing  his work can so  much  be  accomplished.

To the clear insight and executive ability of the trained business  man he needs to add the courtesy,  and sometimes the polite Inflexibility  at Kiilarney, Man. Mr. Dafoe waa  born in Hastings County, Ont, in  March, 18CC. Ho was educated nt  the Arnprlor public and high schools  and after some years of school teach  of the diplomatist.

In 1902 Mr. Dafoe was offered and  accepted the editorial management  of the Free Press, which under his  control has developed until it has,  become, the biggest and one of the  most influential newspapers in the  Dominion.- >  Mr. Dafoe has been repeatedly requested by his friends to enter public  life, but has always resolutely declined. He is a quiet but very convincing public speaker, altogether  free from the tricks and vic-^s of oratory, and depending for the effect of  what he says upon the matter he  presents. His appeal on the platform, as in the columns of his paper,  is solely to" the reason and intelligence of his audience. He has an  utter abhorrence of the arts of the  demagogue. It is difficult to see how  a man of his equipment can be kept  out of public life, and the general belief is that when editorial duties permit him greater leisure he will be  found among the people's representatives in either legislature or parliament. Meantime, his services are in  increasing demand on the platform.  Canadian Clubs and the societies of  cognate aims being desirous of securing him to discuss matters of general  public interest.  Mr. Dafoe married ,in June 1890,  Alice, the second daughter of Hon.  W. J. Parmelee, deputy minister of  Trade and Commerce with the Dominion government.
