Tho Story l;i 'Brief of, a Church That Was  Originally liu'lt by KlnS KUA-lliert In  A'.'D. *>T*4 uail "Uc-'oitstriK-'t-rt 31*0 Ycarj  Ago���������Onco the Site of tt Temple to  Dliuiu hi ('real iii-jtiiln.  Tradition asserts that a Temple to  Diana preceded tho Christian Church  of St. i'uul's on the summit of Lud-.  galc Hill. It is not at all unlikely.  When the Romans swept the country,  und formed their camp on the eminence,, overlooking the Thames to  protect tho rivor trade at tho foot of  tho hill, they would also erect a  heathen temple somewhere in tho  neighborhood.  How and when Christianity supplanted heathenism in London no man  knows. The barbaric hordes from tho  north who rolled thc Roman' legiotis  into the sea did their work so  thoroughly that no jiraco of authentic history remains. Although it is  certain that at the Council of Aries,  in 314, Restitutus, a Bishop of London was one of the three British bishops present, it cannot be said with  certainty that hjs church was the  Church of St. Paul's.  St. Peter's, Cbrnhill, has been  claimed* to have an older foundation  than that of St. Paul's, but Bishop  Browne gives good reasons for rejecting the claim.  Reliable history begins with the  Venerable Bede, who, in speaking of  the consecration of, Bishop Mellitus  in 604, adds: "King -Ethelbert built,  the Church of St. Paul's, in the City  of London, where he (Mellitus) and  his successors should have their  episcopal scat," but gives no indica-  - tion whether this was an entirely  new church, or one erected on a site  previously occupied.  The demon of lire seems to have  had a peculiar grudge against St.  Paul's, for twenty years after .the  conquest the church was wrapped in  flames and burned to the ground.  Bishop Maurice entertained ambitious plans for a church of considerable magnitude.; When the finishing  touches were put to the structure it  was the pride and admiration of the  Norman builder, William of Malines-,  bury went into raptures over it.  "Such is. the . steadiness of its  ���������heautyT^^he-sa-ys-r-^t-hat��������� it���������is-wor-bhy-  of being numbered amongst the most  famous of buildings."   .*���������������������������.���������    p.  But thirty years later this elaborate 'building was consumed in the  ilames that swept thc city from London Bridge to the Fleet, and a now  jiuvc��������� destined to be tho scene of  many stirring events���������was erected on  the ruins of tho old.  Old St. Paul's, as this church is  known in history, stood for over live  hundred years, and during that period witnessed some stirring and  exciting events. In fact, a great portion of English history is epitomized  in the history of tho church.  In Richard the Second's day, Lud-  gato Hill often witnessed tho picturesque sight of monks, pedlars, pilgrims, nnd other wanderers wending  their way to the sacred shrine to  deposit, -tli'dr offerings or obtain healing and strengthening virtue from a  contemplation of the many relics  that wero guarded by tho monks,  and regarded with awo by tho wandering- 'crowds, Ao suspicions as to  their genuineness ever entered the  minds of thoso simplo people. It is  only in theso less rovivent in I days  tlmt wo raise a brond smile when  wo nro Loid thnt Old St, Paul's contained, among other relics, "A knife  of our Lord, sumo hair of 'Alary  Mngdnlono, some blood of St. Paul,  noma milk of tho Virgin, the hand ot'  St. .lohn, pieces of the Inip-'fuoii'i  skull of ThoiniiH a Rocket, ni,<| the  hond and jaw of King Kfhoilior!!"  In thu early days of Queen Elizabeth tho church hnd becomo what the  Temp!" wns in I 'heist 'h dnv���������-ii den of  thieves and worse,, Tin* ''ineeti issued  n proclamation forbidding fi'iiy,  drawing of swordH in the church, or  shooting of Jinnd-giitin or dugg within the church or ehureh-ynnl, under  pain of two months' Imprisonment.

The flro broke out on Hundny  morning, Sept, *.������. inim.    On Tne*-  day evening it caught the top of the  church, and before nine o'clock, says  Taswell, "it blazed so conspicuous  as to enable me.to read very clearly  a ldnio. edition of Terence which I  carried in my pocket." Evelyn .records in .his diary, "The stones of  St.- Paul's flew like grenades, the  melting lead running down-tho street  in a stream, and the very pavo-  menis glowing with a fiery redness,  so as no man-or.horse was able to  tread nn them, and the demolition,  had slopped all passages,, so that no  help could bo 'applied, tho eastern  win:! still more impetuously rtrivirio'  the flani?s forward." In addition to  the cathedral, 8*1 parish churches suffered -a similar fate.  "he first stone of the now church  was laid on Juno 121, 1075, and it  was thirty-five yoars later boforo tho  'Jo I "emu could be chanted on tho  completion of the work. Wren was  uov, an old man bordering on eighty,  and being unable to ascend the lantern tower, the* fixing of the last  stone .on thc summit was entrusted  to his son, Christopher, who, with  the master mason, Edward Strong,  successfully accomplished, the task,  an.enormous crowd looking on from  below. v  Tho rebuilding Was regarded in the  light of a national undertaking, and,  to defray the cost, the Government  imposed a duty of Is. Cd. per chal-  di on on sea-borne coal entering tho  ���������Thames. The effect of this impost is  to ,mal������j the church the property of  the public. According to Mr. Dhu-  oi:k, the coal dues realized ������810,1S1  18s. 2d., and public subscriptions  and other gifts raised the total to  ������878,523 12s. -fid. The entire cost  including interest on loans advanced  during different stages of the work,  amounted to ������840,214 12s (3d., leaving a balance in hand in 1722 of  ������32,308 19s. 9d.  Tho stone used in the building is  from the famous Portland quarries,  and was selected because of its durability in regard to both weather  and smoke, the facilities for transport, and the size of the blocks.  The cathedral itself, left colorless  and blank-by Wren, has never been  finished.  'During the last thirty years, however, good progress has been mado  with the decorative work. The  eight spandrel pictures round the  dome were completed in 1894. In  niches above the gilt rails of the  whispering gallery are stone figures  of the four eastern and four western  doctors of the church. A marble  pulpit has been erected.

Had the expected discussion taken  place, we should have had, in common with our brother -journalists, to  lament our total inability to give  any account of it, either for the  gratification of the public, or of the  speakers, or for the benefit of the  interests of the nation, so materially connected with it.���������Times, April  21, 1804.    Convijrtei* tlie Reporters.  An amusing feud between the bench  and the press has arisen in Melbourne, according to The London  Chronicle. One of the local morning  journals alleged that the court hours  wero too short altogether and that  public inconvenience thereby resulted.  Chief Justice Sir John Madden".read  that statement and staggered counsel by sitting until G o'clock every  day. A deputation of barrister;.'  .waited upon him and remonstrated.  He replied that so long as the public, as represented by the press, considered that the court w*as consulting  its own ease he would continue to  sit late. He has already converted  the reporters.  "Qulncy Tufts."  Lord Carnarvon, during hia visit  "to the United States last year, took  a commendable interest in all things.  He was passing one day through a  small Eastern town whon lae noticed  the shop of a man called Quincy  Tufts. Mr. Tufts was his name u;)on  his sign in huge letters, and Lord  Carnarvon misunderstood that odd  name. He imagined that it represented some interesting object which  he had never seen. Accordingly, entering the shop, the distinguished  foreigner said to * the proprietor:  "Pray, sir, what are quincy tuf..s\*  Show.me some, won't you?"  was dedicated on St. Paul's Bay,  1888. Several stained glass windows have supplanted those of plain  glass, and Sir W. B. Richmond's  mosaics, though subjected to much  adverse criticism, have lit up thc  choir with gleams of harmonious  coior.   n  The church has been the scene of  many imposing ceremonies, chief of  which in recent years have been tho  attendance of Queon Victoria and tho  royal family in February, 1872, to  give thanks to God for the recovery  of tho Princo of Wales, and the still  more recent thanksgiving for tho  Jubilee reign of Queen Victoria in  1897, when the service was hold at  the foot of tho west front steps, a  record of which is inscribed on the  granite* pavement,  FOR THIRTEEN YEARS.

I'U Brow Workers in Lancashire Collieries I  Wear Trousers���������'i'helr ^Hcutlgear  Also Worthy of Note.  Pit brow girls are among ��������� the  most remarkable Women workers, in  England.. They work as hard as  men and dress almost like men.  Very few pit brow girls are found  in Britain outside Lancashire, and  5,000 of them liad employment at  the coal "mines. Their w-ork lies on  the pit brow���������at tho surface and  not below, Onco women wore employed in the coal seams, but in  1842 in the face of groat opposition  from colliery owners an act was  passed prohibiting women and children from being employed below  the surface in coal mines.  The duties of tho pit brow lasses  consist in dealing with the coal as  it comes up tho shaft to tho pit  head. Whon tho cage roaches the  top, tho girls haul out tho wagons,  which contain several hundred-weight  of coal, each, and run them on rails  to a tipping machine, which shoots  the coal down bolow to tho screen  or riddling machine. This is an iron  slide several yards long, with holes  through which tho coal drops at  various stages into trucks waiting  beneath. It is jerked about by  steam power, and the coal moves  downward While the girls stationed  alongside pick out the rubbish. It  is dusty work. ,  The girls start work at 6 o'clock  in the morning and finish at 3 or 4.  o'clock in tho afternoon. As may  be judged, their work is arduous,  and for its performance they receive  50 cents or less a day. Men who do  the same work get ������1. Taken altogether, the pit brow lasses are a  strong, healthy lot, ranging in ago  from eighteen to twenty-five.  Their dress is distinctive and peculiar. The working costume consists of trousers, clogs and a coat  which has at one time been worn by  a brother or has como from a rummage stall. When going to and  from work, tho girls w������ar petticoats, which they, roll up round tho  waist while engaged on the pit  brow. At most pits nowadays tho  trousers are hidden in front by a  short apron, but this is a comparatively recent 'departure in the way  of dress. Tho headgear is also  worthy of note. The hair is closely  covered with a handkerchief, on the  top of which is a soft bonnet.  ST. VITUS DANCE  MUST   BE    TREATED    THROUGH  THE BLOOD AXD NERVES.  Painted "The Derby Day."

Ho was not acquainted with  tho locality and was most. ��������� anxious  to see his customer at once. Theso  facts ho mentioned to an obliging  clerk behind tho counter.  Ho was at onco informed that he  could bo sont to tho required address I  "by registered post" at a feo" of!  threepence a mile, Tho gentleman !  gladly accepted the ofl'or, and In j  less than a minute found himself in ''  charge of a smart messenger boy, I  who vory soon guided him by the j  shortest route to his destination.      i  Tho    boy carried in    his    hand   a i  printed'slip with a description of his '  charge under    the heading,    'Articlo  required to    lio delivered," and   this \  ho required tho gentleman' and   customer to sign tjoforo ho loft tho lat-  ter's houso.

St Vitus danco is a nervous disease  chiefly alllicting children. There are  a number of signs by which it ���������may  be detected such as a twiching of  the muscles of the face, shaky hands,  or a jerky motion of thu arms, a  trembling or a dragging of the legs,  irritability and restlessness. St.  Vitus dance is caused by disordered ���������  nerves and Wood���������that is why it is  always cured by Dr, Williams' Pink  Pills. The pills fill the veins with  pure, rich red blood, which in turn  soothes and braces the nerves, making the sulYerer well. Mrs. Luflmtin,  Poucher's Mill's, Ont., tolls how Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills cured her daugh-  Vr, Louise. "I do not think it possible," says Mrs'L,uffinan, "that anyone could be afflicted with a more  severe form of St. Vitus dance than  that which attacked my .daughter.  Her arms and legs would twich and  jerk, her face was drawn, and finally,  hor loft side became numb as though  paralyzed. Her speech became thick  and indistinct and she could neither  stand still or sit down. Two doctors attended her but gave her no  tfcnefit. The last doctor who attended hor told mo sho would never get  better. It was at this discouraging  time we decided to give her Dr. Wil-  liaifts' Pink Pills. After taking two  boxes we coukl see an improvement;  she could sleep better and the spasms  were less severe. From that on she  steadily" grew .better, and after using  eight or ten boxes she was as strong  and healthy a girl as you will find  anywhere, and sho has not had tho  least symptom of the trouble since."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ,'are the  surest curo for St Vitus danco, hysteria, neuralgia, nervous exhaustion, paralysis, and nil tho nervous  troubles of men, women and children.

Well,  by an unscrupulous falsehood on the  part of a tenth century reprobate  called Eric the Red of Iceland.

He called it Greenland and to delude  the Iceland investors and general public said it was a wonderful green country, .which he wished them to visit  with their families and take shares in  some mines he had discovered. Well,  some of the deluded creatures went.  Tfiey never returned to good old Iceland any more. '  But there are plenty of equally gross  Impostures. Take the Black sea, for  instance. Why black? Who said it  was black? It is no more black than  It is pink or purple. The ancients called it the "Euxine"���������which means "inhospitable"-sea. That was another  good old fiction. It is not at all an inhospitable sea, for, having no tides, it  is one of the easiest to navigate. Now  and again there are big storms, just to  give the sea a realistic touch, but generally speaking it isn't black, Vand it  isn't inhospitable.  The Cape of Good Hope! Good  Hope, Indeed! .

Ask any ono to explain why a certain girl is regarded as pretty and see  if you get a direct answer. Probably  you will hear that "she certainly is  pretty, but really I don't know .why,  for she has not a good feature in her  face, and,'now I come to think about  it, I have seen prettier complexions."  She may have a good figure, but that  does not alone make a girl worth looking at twice and certainly does "riot.  gain her a reputation for prettiuess.-  Your "pretty girl," you will find, is ���������immaculately fresh and neat looking.. Her  hair looks well brushed and is well und  becomingly arranged; her dress is well  chosen in color, and, however simple iii  style, it is thoroughly trim at the neck,  and there is never a suspicion of rags  or. untidiness about her skirt braid or  her petticoat,  The "little things",, of that girl's toilet are not slurred over, and bor hands  and feet are as dainty as care can  make them, for her innate refinement  makes her abhor the dictum of the  sloven that "all that matters is the  general effect, and little, details are not  worth "bothering about." Those little  details just make all the difference between the well and badly dressed girl,  but attention to them is not enough to  gain a girl of average looks the reputation1 of being pretty. Look at her well  and see. if lier irregular features do not  form part of a bright aud" animated  face that makes you feel'glad when  you look at it. The attractive girl who  without beauty is considered to possess it is a girl of culture and refinement, and the reason why: ugly girls  are less often met now than in former  times is owing to the superior education which maidens of today in every  class of life enjoy.  ; Long ShonltlerM Beeoiulug Marked.  j "Boleroi-i n������il Skirts.       ,  I little coffee jackets of embroidery  ; and lace are spring necessities.

In sky-scraper, or foot-wca-f, the covered up base, that which  is least seen is of greatest importance.  No single item in a, shoe costs so much as the best sole  leather, and no part can be wrcbb5d"rso .easily, without revealing  it to the eye.  Paint and polish cover equally the best, and the worst, sole  in the finished shoe.  Wear alone tells the consumer (too late for remedy) what  gradeof leather has been put into it.  This is where the " Slater Shoe "~~ the slate frame " Slater  Shoe" ��������� steps in, to eradicate lottery.  As the Slater Shoe Makers brand their own price on the sole  of every pair, they thus become directly responsible to the Wearer  up to that price, for its durability and shape retention, in addition  to its window appearance.  They dare not rob the vitals of the shoe to put the plunder into  the mere sellingpoints---into surface value, and finish chiefly.

There in the1 midst of the crowd she  had seen all. Not a cry had escaped  her wben tbo blade, white with heat,  . passed over the-eyes of her companion.  She had the strength to remain motionless'and silent. A providential inspiration told her to preserve herself still  free to guide the son of Marfa Strogoff  to tho end which he bad sworn to attain. Her heart for the moment ceased  to beat when tbe old Siberian fell lifeless, but a thought soon restored all  her energy.  "I will be the clog of the blind man,"  she said to herself.  After the departure of Ivan Ogareff  Nadia had bidden'dn the shade. She  waited until the,crowds left the plateau. Michael Strogoff, abandoned as  a miserable being to be feared by no  one, was alone. Sbe saw bim drag himself as far as his mother, bend himself down to her, kiss her forehead,  then raise himself up and grope for  flight. '*.. '  Some moments later Michael and Nadia, hand in hand, bad descended the  steep hillside, and, after, having, followed the banks of the Tom as far as  the extremity of the town, they happily passed out by a gap in the fence.  The route for Irkutsk was the only  one that struck eastward. They could  not make a mistake. Nadia rapidly pulled along Michael Strogoff. It was possible that early nest morning, after some  hours of orgies, the scouts of the emir,  throwing themselves again on the  steppe, would cut off all communication. ; It was then of the/utmost importance to outstrip them and to reach  -KrAsnqiaEsk_befoEe-them,^wJiich_jivas.  800 versts separate from Tomsk���������In  one word, only to leave the highway as  late as possible.  The next morning, twelve hours after  their departure'" from Tomsk, Michael  Strogoff and Nadia reached the town  of Semllowskoe, after a journey of fifteen versts.  ! heard it somewhere, and without doubt  j it was suflicient to, cause him to recognize the driver of the kibitka, for his  face at once became serene,  "Well, now, where are you going?"  repeated the young man, 'addressing  himself more directly to Michael Stro-  gon.  "We were going to Irkutsk," answered the latter.  "Oh, my good man, do you not know,  then, tbat there are many, many versts  between this and Irkutsk?"  "I know it."  "And you are going on foot?" i  "On foot.",  "As for you, It's all right, but the  miss?"  "She is my sister," said Michael Strogoff, who thought it more prudent to  give this name again to Nadia.  "Yes, your sister, my good man. But,  believe me, she will never be able to  reach Irkutsk."  1 "Friend," replied Michael Strogoff as  he drew near, "the Tartars have robbed us, and I have not a copeck to offer  thee, but if you will take my sister  near you I will follow the carriage on  foot. I will run if it be necessary and  will not delay you one hour."  "Brother," cried Nadia, "I do not  wish it! T do not wish it! Sir, my  brother is blind!"  "Blind!" said the young man In a  voice moved with emotion.  "The Tartars bave burned out his  eyes!" answered Nadia, stretching out  her hands as though to implore pity.  "Burned your eyes? ,Ob, poor, dear  man! I am going to Krasnoiarsk.  Well, now, why do you not mount with  your sister Into the kibitka? In sitting  a little closer we shall hold each other  up. Besides, my dog will not refuse to  go on foot. Only I db not go fast in or-  der-to-spare-my-horse.���������  CHAPTER XIV.  ICHAEL STROGOFF and  Nadia had left'Semllowskoe about two hours  wben Michael stopped  suddenly.  "Is tbo road deserted?"  he asked.  "Without a soul on it," replied Nadia.  "Do you not bear some noise behind ?"  "Truly."  "If those nre the Tartars, wo must  hldo ourselves.  Look well."  "Listen, Michael!" replied Nadia, ascending the road, which diverged some  paces to thb right.  Michael Strogoff stopped an Instant  alone, stretching bis oars to listen.  Nadia returned almost immediately  and said: -  "It Is a vehicle. A young man ls leading It."  "He Is alone?"  "Alone."  Michael Strogoff hesitated for n, moment. Ought he to hide, or Ought ho,  on the contrary, try tho chance of finding a pluco lu his vehicle, if not for  himself, nt least for hor? For himself,  ho would bo content to rest IiIh hand  on It and would push when needed, for  his logs wero far from falling lilm, but  lio folt that Nadia, dragged on foot  since tho passage of the obi���������tminoly,  for moro that eight days-was at tho  end of her strength.  Ho waited. Tlio vchlclo arrived'soon  ot the turn of the rond,  It was a very rtllnnldntrtl vehicle,  able to hold nt most three persons���������  what Is called In that country a kibitka,  Tho klbllka Is usually drawn by three  horses, but this ono wna drawn only hy  one horse, with long hair and u long  tall, but Us Mongol luu blond ullirnicd  strength and courage,  A young man conducted It, having  uoar lilm a dog.  Nndla at onco ������tw that this young  man was ������ Russian. lie had a sweet  and phlegmatic uppvuruuee whicli la-  i-pirtu cuuiiu'euce.  Moreover, ho did not appear to bo in  the least hurry. lie walked with a  quiet step In order not to oVerdrlvo his  horse, ami to see lilm one could never  have believed tlmt bo was toil-nviug a  route which tho Tartars might cut off  ot nny'moment.  Nadln, holding the hand of Michael  Strogoff, stood on ono sido,  The klbltka stopped, nnd tlio driver  looked nt the young jjlrl, at thc same  time smiling.  "And wlifi'o niu you going In this  fashion?" ho asked her as ho looked  plea unfitly round.  At the sound of Ii!s volco Michael  Strogoff sr*W to hlni������elf that bo bad  Friend, what do they call you?"  asked Michael Strogoff.  "I am called Nicholas Plgassof."  "It is a name that I shall never forget," answered Michael Strogoff.  "Well, then, mount, my good blind  man. Your sister shall be near you at  the back of tho car; I In front to conduct,'' There are somo good birch bark  and some barley straw on tbo bottom,  It's liko a nest. Come, Serko, glvo us  room."  The dog Jumped off without much  asking. It waa an animal of tho Siberian brood, with a gray hido, medium  size, with a good, large and caressing  head, and which appeared to be very  attached to his master..  Michael Strogoff and Nadia In nn instant were Installed In tho klbllka. Michael Strogoff had stretched out his  hands as though to search those of  Nicholas Plgassof.  "Is Jt my hands you wish to press?"  said Nicholas. "Here thoy are, my  good man. Shake them as much aa  you like."  The kibitka was soon In motion. The  horso, which Nicholas never ��������� struck,  ambled along. If Michael Strogoff did  not gain much In rapidity, at least new  fatigues would bo spared to Nndla.  And such was tho exhaustion of the  young girl that, rocked by the monotonous motion of tho kibitka, sho soon  foil luto a sloop that resembled an titter  prostration. Michael Strogoff and Nicholas mado a bed for hor on tho birch  loaves ns well ns they were able. The  oompasslonato young man was much  moved, and If a tear did not escape tlio  eyes of Mlclmel Strogoff In truth It  wns been uso the redbot Iron had burned them dry.  "She Is pretty," wild Nicholas.  "Yes," answered Michael Strogoff.  "Those ('.iirllngH would bo strong, for  they are courageous, but Ihey aro really ouly weak. Do you como a grout  distance?"  "From a groat distance."  "Poor young folks! It must have  hurt you much when they burned your  eyes."  "Very much," snid Mlclmel Strogoff,  turning as though he could seo Nicholas,  "Did you not cry?"  ������������������Yes."  "1 IliliO SJiOUJU  lllllll ClU'U,     J.0 tilllli'  Unit vmi van *.i,'t'' m.v i.hi.ila Cottts Ue  loves! Anyhow Ihey *tw ymi, Thut Is  perhaps somo consolation."  ���������'Yes, perhaps. Toil me, frlond," demanded Michael Strogoff, "hnvo you  liuvnr kxivli luu Ulijitumv bviuiu lu-  duyT  "You, my good man? No, novor."  "It Is bocnuso the sound of your voice  Is not unknown to mo."  "Uo you seo?" said Nicholas, smiling.  "He knows tho sound of my voice.  J Perhaps you risk tno this to learn  , win nee I cviiue, Oh, I am going to  j tell you. I nm coming from Knlyvan."  I "From Kalyvan?" paid Michael Stro-  j goff. "Well, then It Is there that I mot  ^0%   Tou woro at the telegraph of-  IS  ii.���������*U������������&z.  lice?.'  ���������"That may be," answered Nicholas  "I lived there. I was employ eu us* u-ie-  graph operator."  "And. you ..remained at your post to  the last moment.'?"  "Eh! It is especially at that moment  one ought to be tliere."  "It was the day when an Englishman  and a Frenchman, rubles ia their  hands,.disputed the turn at your'wicker, and when thv-imglishman telegraph-  oil the first verses of the Bible?"  "That, iny good man. is possible, but  i do not remember it."  "What!   You do not remember it?" ���������  "   "I never read the dispatches.which I  transmit.    My  duty  being  to  forget  them," the shortest way is to bo ignorant of-them." -.-,  This answer wa3 characteristic of  Nicholas'Pigassof.*  However, the kibitka kept on its easy  course, which Michael Strogoff would  have liked to render more rapid, but  Nicholas and his horse were accustomed to a gait from which neither the o:ie  nor the other could depart. The horso  walked for three hours and, thon rested for one, and this day and night.  During the halts the horse pastured,  tlio travelers of thekibitka ate in company with,-the faithful Serko. Tbo kibitka was provisioned, for at le.-*st  twenty persons, and Nicholas had generously placed tho reserved food at the.  disposal of his two guests, whom >"���������  believed to be brother and sister.  Ou the 22d of August the kibitka  reached the town of Atchiusk, which  was 3S0 versts from Tomsk. A hundred and twenty versts still separated  it from Krasnoiarsk..**No incident had  marked this journey. During the six  days they had been together Nicholas,  Michael Strogoff and Nadia had remained just the same, the one i-li his  uuaiterabie calmness, the other two  anxious and looking forward to the  moment when their companion would  separate from them.  On the evening of the 25th of August  the kibitka was only half a verst from  Krasnoiarsk. One_could see on the  right aiid left the numerous wooden  crosses which are erected along the  road at the approaches to the town. It  was 7 o'clock at night.  The kibitka bad stopped;  "Where are we, sister?" asked Michael Strogoff.  "A little over a half verst from the  first houses," answered Nadia.  *��������� "Has the town, then, gone to sleep?  ^Ktrnirige~strikes~up*onwmy~caT:"~~r*^���������*"  Ten minutes afterward the'kibitka  entered the principal street.  Krasnoiarsk was deserted! Tbere was  not any .longer an Athenian in this  "Athens of tho.Nonfh," as it is called  by Mme. de Bourboulon. Not one of  those equipages, so splendidly rigged  out, rattled along tbo handsome wide  streets. Not a foot passenger trod the  sidewalks that skirted those, maguiii-  cent houses of wood, palatial in their  grandeur  Not a living soul remained In Krasnoiarsk.  Michael Strogoff, Nadia and Nicholas  had not to search long for a place in  which to rest. The flrst. hou^o of which  they tried the door was empty, ns "were  all the rest. Tboy found nothing thoro  but a heap of leaves. For want of  something bettor, the horso had to bo  content with this monger food. As for  tho provisions of tho kibitka, they were  not exhausted, and each ono took his  share. Then, after having knelt before a modest picture of tho Pnnaghla  that was hanging on the wall and  which the last flame of a lamp still lit  up, Nicholas aud the young girl fell  asleep, whllo Michael Strogoff remained awake, his anxiety driving away  all sleep.  Tho next day,'20th of, August, before  daybreak tho klbltka wns traversing  tho park, of birch trees to roach the  banks of tho Yenisei, which was crossed by tbe llttlo party'on on Improvised  raft.  Michael Strogoff could at length believe that tho route was free as far as  Irkutsk. IIo had ouisiripped the Tartars, und when the soldlerw of the eiiilr  should arrive nt Krasnoiarsk thoy  would on|y Und an abandoned town  there and no. means of linmcdlnto communication between tho two banks of  tlio Yenisei; hence a delay of somo days  ! until a bridge of boats, diflicult to construct, should open a pas-sago to them.  For the llrst time slnco tho unlucky  mooting with Ivan Ogoroff at Omsk  the courier of tho czar felt hlmsolf less  uneasy and could hope that no new  obstacle* would nrlso to the accomplishment of his plans.  Tho klbltka, after having proceeded  about llfleou versts toward tho south-  east, camo to and retook tho long highroad across the steppo. !  uu Uiu -*->ui ut August tno travelers  "...J i;.!.*-,���������*,*.*] llie luiili uf Jj.ll.ti.*>]*., -ililcii  was eighty versts from Krasnoiarsk,  nnd by tho 20th that of Rlblnsk, forty  versts from Balalsk,  Tho next day, after traveling moro  than thiriy-livo versts, they nrrlvetl at  Kiimsk, a moro considerable town, ira-  terod by the river of tho samo name,  a small affluent of tho Yenisei, which  descends from tho mountains of Ba-  yonsk.  On going out from KnmsU Mlclmel  Informed Nndla nnd Nicholas that tliey  would tind only one little town of ho mo  Importance, Nljnl Oudlnsk, before It*  kumk, Nicholas answered that he  kucw that tliere was a telegraphic station lo that town.  Therefore If Nljnl  Oudinsk bad been abandoned like  Kamsk he would certainly be obliged  to seek for some occupation in the cap-,  ltal of'.eastern Siberia. .  From Kamsk to the neighboring town  was very long, about a hundred and  thirty versts.  After having crossed the little river  of Biriousa the kibitka reached Biriou-  sins.'v on the morning of the 4th cf September. There, very fortunately. Nicholas, who saw his provisions becoming  exhausted, found in an abandoned bakehouse a-dozen--calces, prepared with  mutton fat, and a large supply of boiled rlo-V  After a reasonable halt they contln-j  uod their journey once more on the aft- ]  eruoon of the Sth of September. Tho!  distance to Irkutsk was not more than j  500 versts. Nothing in their rear sig-t  naled the advance guard of the Tar-j  tars. Michael Strogoff had therefore  settled down to think that his journey!  would not again be interrupted and!  that in eight days or iu ten at the most'  ho would be in the presence of the  grand duke.  In coming out of BU'lousinsk a bare  crossed the road about thirty paces ini  front of the kibitka. '���������''.-  "Ah!" said Nicholas.  "What ls the matter; friend?" asked  Michael Strogoff eagerly, as a blind  man whom the least noise held on the  watch.  .  "Did you not see?" said Nicholas, I  .whose, Bmiling face suddenly became  cloudy.  Then he added:    '  -.���������' "Ah, no, you could not see, and it Is  happy for you, good father!"  '"But"I have seen nothing," said Na-  dra-"  "So much the better! So much the  better!   But I���������I havo seen!"  "What was it, t_en?" asked Michael  Strogoff.  "A hare tbat came across our path!"  answered Nicholas.  In Russia when a hare crosses the  path of a traveler popular belief looks  upon It as a sign of approaching evil.  Nicholas, superstitious as are the  greater part of the Russians, had stopped the kibitka.        .     **"  Michael Strogoff understood the hesitation of his companion, although he  did not share bis. credulity regarding  hares crossing the path, and he wished  to reassure bim.  "We have nothing to fear, friend,"  he said to him.  -^Nothing-for-you-nor������for-her,-I-knowr  good father," ansAvered Nicholas, "but  for me!"  And, continuing, said he: i  "It is my destiny."  And ho again put his horse to tho  trot.  Meanwhile, In spite of the sad prognostications, the day passed by without any accident.  Next day, Sept. 0, at noon the kibitka  halted at .the town of Alsalevsk, as deserted ns was tho surrounding country.  There on the threshold of a houso  Nadia found two of those knives ,wlth.  long, sharp blades used by Siberian  hunters. She gavo one of them to'Ml-*  chad Strogoff,' who hid It under his  coat, and she kept tho other for herself. Tho kibitka was not moro than  sixty-five,versts from Nljnl Oudinsk.  Nicholas during the last two days  had not boon able to regain his usual  good humor. Tlie ovll omen hnd affected him moro than ono could have believed, and ho who up to that time had  never remained an hour without talking had now long spells of,silence, from  which oven Nadia could with difliculty  withdraw lilm.  In splto of all his somewhat fatalistic  resignation bo would not believe himself safo except within tho walls of  Irkutsk, Many Russians would havo  thought llko Nicholas, and more than  one, pulling tho brldlo'of bis horso,  would havo turned back after seeing a  hnro cross-their path.  Tho next day, toward 4 o'clock In tho  afternoon, Nicholas descried on the  horizon tho high belfries of tho churches of Nljnl Oudinsk. They wero crowned with thick columns of vapor which  could not bo clouds.  Nicholas and Nndla lookod and communicated to Michael Strogoff tho result of thoir observations. They must  docldo their courso of action at once.  If tho town had boon abandoned, they  could pass through It without nny risk,  but If by a movement that thoy could  not explain tho Tartars already occupied It they must turn It at any price.  "Let us advance prudently," said Michael Strogoff, "but let us advance!"  Anothor verst was mado.  lie was about to proposo to Nicholas  to loavo tlio route and In case of necessity only to regain It after having turned, Nljnl Oudinsk, when tho sound of n  gun hum heal J ua the ii^hL A Lull  liljisul, and Uio horse In the klbltka,  struck lu tno head, fell dead.  At the same Instant, a dozen horsemen throw themselves on tho road, and  tho klbltka was surrounded, Mlclmel  bUDgoU*', Nuuia uud *uu������uia*������, Vt-lt.i-v-u'.  having nnd tlmt to recover themselves,  woro prisoners nnd being led rapidly  toward Nljnl Oudinsk.  Tbo next day, nth of September, the  detachment pasted through the town  of Cblbarllnskoe.  At tbat time an Incident occurred  wblcb wav to bavo very ecrlous consequence**.  Tbe nlgbt bad come. Tbe Tartar  boraemen, having bad t halt, were  more or ton drank. Tbey wen about  to continue their Journey.  , Nadia, who up to that time, as though  by a miracle, had been respected by  those soldiers, was insulted-by one of  them. .  Michael Strogoff had been able to see  neither the lusult nor the insulting.per-  son, but Nicholas had,seen for him.  Then quietly, without having reflected, without perhaps having any '-consciousness of his action, Nicholas made  straight for the soldier, and before the  lafter could make nuy^ movement to  stop him, snatching a pistol from tlie.,  pommel of his saddle, he discharged it  full at hl3 breast.  The officer who had command of the  detachuient rau up immediately at the  souud of the pistol.  - The horsemen were about to cut Nicholas in pieces, but at/a sign from the  officer' they bound him fast with cords,  they flung him across a horse, and the  detachuient set off at a gallop.  The cord which tied,Michiel Strogoff,  gnawed by him. broke at an unexpected dash of the horse, aud its rider, half  drunk, carried away in a quick run,  did not even perceive It  Michael Strogoff and.

But bow changed  wore the circumstances  of the journey! Then a comfortable  vehicle, teams often renewed, well provided post horses, Secured,for them a  quick journey. Now they went on foot,  with an impossibility of procuring for  themselves any means of locomotion,1  without resources, uot knowing even  how to procure the least wants of life,  and they had still to make 400 versts I  And, moreover, Michael Strogoff now  only saw through the eyes of Nadia.  As for the friend whom chance had  given tliem,"',they had just lost him under the most affecting circumstances.  It was 10 o'clock at night. For the  last three hours and a half the sun had  disappeared below the horizon. Thera  was not a house, not a hut, in sight.  The last Tartars wore lost in the distance. Michael Strogoff and Nadia  were indeed alone.  "To what place shall I lead you, Michael?"  ���������JiTo-Irk.utsk,IL.be_nnsw.ered.   "By the highroad?"  "Yes, Nadia."  Nadia took the band of Michael Strogoff, and tbey once moro set out on  their journey.  Next morning, Sept. 12, twenty versts  farther, at the town.of Toulounovskoe,  both halted for a short'time. The town  was burned down nnd was*deserted.''  During that day they had to pass the  littlo stream of tho Oka, but it was  fordoble, and that passage*.offered no  difficulty.  P.ut, contrary to what Michael Strogoff had perhaps hoped, there, was not  any longer a single beast of burdhi in  the couutry. Every horse, every camel, bad been either killed or taken  away. It was therefore on foot tbey  must cross this novor ending steppe.  And thus thoy walked .on for threo  days.'  Several tlirws Nndla was obliged'to  stop. Michael Strogoff then took her  In his arms, and for the moment, uot  having to think of :Nadia!s fatlguo,  Whljo carrying her ho marched moro  quickly and with his untiring pace.  On the ISth of September, at 10  o'clock at night, both reached at length  Klmlltoiskoe, From the top of a bill  Nadia perceived a lino a llttlo less dark,  on the horizon.   It was tho DInka.  Suddenly thoy stopped, as If thoir  feet had stopped Into somo crevice In  tho ground.  A dog's bark was heard across tbo  steppe.  "Do you hear?" said Nadia,  Thon camo a lamentable cry, n cry of  despair, llko the Inst appeal of a human  being who Is about to dlo.  "Nicholas! Nicholas!" crlod tho young  girl, urged on by somo evil foreboding.  Mlclmel Strogoff, who listened, bung  dowu his head.  "Corpo, Mlclmel, como!" said Nadia.  And she who Just before could sonrco*  ly drag herself along suddenly recovered hor strength under tho sway of violent excitement.  "Havo wo loft tho road?" said Michael Strogoff, fooling that he was  treading no louger tho dunty road, but  the open grass Held.  "Yes; It Is necessary!" answorod Nadia. "It Is from over there on the right  that tho cry came!"  Some minutes afterward tho two woro  onlv half a verst from tho river.  A second bark was heard, and, although moro feeble, it was eenuuuy  Dourer.  (Te be continued.)  BpUetnh  Miss Oldglrl-I don't llko tho color of  my hnlr.

Tho Daily 'Mirror says: The  strange complications of tho Grad-  lior peerage, which has been dormant  since the death of the third baron  without male ��������� issuu, will shortly once  more come before the House of  Lords. In the early part of tho last  century, Stewart William Gardner,  a grandson of*-Hoar-Admiral Lord  Gardner,* lived in the southwost provinces of India, and contracted a  marriage-with a native woman, and  begat numerous descendants. In  1884, soon after t-"10 third baron  died, the,eldest of these colored descendants sought to take his seat in  tlie House of Lords, but tho0 Lord'  Chancellor decided an enquiry, must  bo hold into his claims. On the  death of his father, in 1901, Alan  Hyde Gardner, who also claims the  title through a collateral branch,  proceeded to India to obtain evidence as to the validity of tho marriage, on which tho title of tho Indian claimant depends. . Ho is advised that tho result of his enquiries clears the way to tho success of  his own claim to the peerage.  Jufi-Kerua-nt nnd Hid Car.

The  majority of shows  which have been he id up to the pre  sent date far surpass those of previous years.    It. has been the wish  of the managew^nt ihat every one  ���������should avail themselves of the opportunity to study' the best anitjials  and the requirements of the best  trade in this line, and also to avail  thepje^'ves of the opportunity of  foxruing how products in different  branches can he produced so as to  ���������make therp ft "financial success.    Jt  js the opinion of those competent to  judge that the conditions existing  in this Province aie exceptionally  good after producing the very best  food products at an expenditure as  reanoiiable as in oiher pans of Oan-  jqida.    A very pleasing feature is*  that British (Dolumbi.. fruit js high  -    ly coqijmended, and the production  of it js decked to take the lead in  the Dominion.    The avidity with  which people take the opportunity  to get a small supply of the fruit  .exhibited, shows__thaj_not^on|y_do  thfy  recognize   and   appreciate a  good article, hut are willing to pay  for it.    Imdairy and beef exhibits  some very good samples have bten  shown.    On October 4tn, 5th and  6th, all interested in breeding and  dairy stock and  poultry raising,  will have an opportunity of attend  ing lectures to be glyen at Comox  by experts.    The dairy school is  certainly .>' good  thing  and   the  ���������Government acted wisely jn providing such a .practical' object le?son  for the benefit of the people.    All  who do any dairying should at'end  these meetings as there   is great  need of improvement in both the  quality and   quantity of   butter.  These lectures are a splendid agency  to bring about this much-needed  reform.    AU farmers should assist  thece lectures in order to be able to  assist in the effort to replace the  system of butter making  now in  vou ue, thereby giving the consumer  a belter quality and tho maker a  larger quantity and a better price  which would also mean  a  more  ���������jeady sale.   Our markets which are  large could bo supplied with home-  made butter if vye only take suflici-  9iit interest in a good work.  CONCERT AT COMOX.
