Early in the morning the Gun  Cluh held the frhoot on their  grounds. Poor shooting, resultan t  of the sun being in the contestants'  eves, marking the event, which  however, was enjoyed, Tom Bates'  cannon kicking back and hitting  him a biff on the nose, being the  only regrettable incident. However, even this was fortunately not  serious. The Hospital dedication  was left out, owing to the management not being ready. The tire*  man's parade, hose contest, &c,  were well carried out, while meanwhile ihe football game was raging,  this being won by the Camps, they  getting one goal on a penalty kick.  The afternoon passed pleasantly  most of the events being well contested and interesting. In the  evening a packed house assembled  to see the wrestling match between  Gay and liaujol which was gone  into after the preliminary bouts between R.( McNeil'and W. Hudson,  G. Lippiat and Joe.

Commander Scott, of tho Discovery,  together with some of hia ollicei-a,  reached land in latitude 80 degrees  17 minutes south, last year, ninl  thus establishes a world's record.  Tho news was brought hy tho relief  chip Morning, whicli reached Lyttle-  ton, New Zealand, at the end .of  March hist.  In February last the biggest vessel, evoy launched,, either from the  United Kingdom or any other shipyard, started on her first voyage.  This was tho Cedric, built by Mar-  land. & Wolff at .Belfast. Ihe displacement of this leviathan is 87,-  ���������870 tons. She is 700 feet long and  75 foot beam; She will carry 3,000  passengers and 18,400 tons of cargo.  Zt costs nearly ������1,000 a day to feed  and provido for the passengers and  crew. But the Cedric by no means  holds all tho shipping records of the  past year. The German. Kaiser Wil-  hchn II., though of 11,800 ton less  displacement than tho Cedric, is six  feet longer and much'more'powerful.  Her engines ar������ of 40,000 'horsepower, and her speed nearly 21  knots. She has five decks for passengers, and no less than half a mile  of������cabin passenger accommodation.  DeuUclilund Not Uouten.  So far, however, she has not beaten the speed record of tho Deutscli-  tand, of tho Hamburg-American lino.  In September last this vessel beat  the world's records for a 'western  passage by three minutes. Her average speed for the whole voyage was  23.15 knots an hour, and her best  run for 24 hours was 283 miles.  May last was notable for the fact  that a turbine steamer for the first  time on record crossed the Atlantic. This was Mr. George Gould's  ���������chartered turbine yacht Emerald. In  epito of bad weather, the engines  jworked. to    -erfeetion.  It was in May also that the largest  warship in the world was launched  from the yard of tho Fairfield Company ~HlT~Glasgow Sire-is-*HTM-7S���������  Commonwealth, a first-class battleship of the Edward*.VII. type. She  ts 425 feet long, 78 foot in beam,  and displaces over 16,000 tons. Sho  iis not only the largest, but the most ]  heavily armoured of England's or  any other navy. Sho has four 12-  inch guns, four 9.2, ten 6-inch, and  a host of lighter weapons, Sho will  carry a complement of 775 officers  ���������.awl mon, and steam at 18i k^ots.

A    naval record   woll worth mentioning is    that which H.M.S. Ari-  ���������adno achiqved last spring.   Tho Ari-  'iwlno is flagship of tho North Ameri-  ���������c&n squadron.

Reminiscence  of  His 'linrllest Serylotj ln  Canada 4-4 Year* Ago.  I shall conclude with a Canadian  reminiscence. Some 4<1 years ago now  ���������then almost at the commencement  of his military career���������Lord Wolseley  was serving in Canada. Like the majority of newcomers to the "Great  Lono Land" the young officer was  imbued1 with an ardent desire to seo  a Red Indian at close quarters and  study him in his own surroundings.  For'a long time, however, his ambition seemed to stand no chance of  being fulfilled, for all the natives  who visited tho various military outposts at which Lord Wolseley was  quartered were either S0c highly civilized or else so seriously under the  influence of too much "fire-water"  aa to bo completely divested of the  ennobling attributes usually accorded to the child of the forest. At  length, the future head of the army  taet with an opportunity that seemed  to promise well for the gratification  of his wish. An expedition into the  Interior of the Dominion was being  arranged and an appointment on tho  fetafi was offered him.  Delighted at .the prospect of at  .last-achieving his ambition. Captain  HVolseley���������as he was , then���������said goodbye to tho attractions of Quebec,  and accompanied the party into the  backwoods. After a fortnight's hard  traveling word was brought to the  camp one night by a guide that- a  fcmall band of bona fido Indians were  bivouacking a few miles ahead.  Thereupon Lord Wolseley rode . forward to interview the chief, whom  bis fancy pictured as being of im-  {>rcsslve demeanor, and clad In the  fconventional garb of feathers and  war-paint. To his undisguised dismay, hbwoverl tho individual to  Whom the guide presently introduced  him tinned out to bo an extremely  Ordinary-looking person, robed in  nothing more romantic than a dia-  fcarded dress-coat and a pair of very  flirty flannel trousers. Concealing his  disappointment as best he could,.  however, Lord Wolseley entorod into  lonversatlon with him, At tho end  bf flvo mlnutos or so the guido hint-  pd that tho noblo Itodskin would not  be advorso to drinking his distinguished visitor's health. Thoroupon  Lord Wolseley presented him with a  florin, rather wondering if tho insult  would entail his bolng tomahawked.  Any tears that ho may havo had on  tho subject, howovor, woro promptly  dispersed by the lorost chlof's plaintive query, "Couldn't you mako it  half a crown?"���������M.A.P.  Haw th* Vlo������r 0������t Sorplleei.  Tho famous Vicar of Gorleston,  whoso originalities occasionally find  thoir way into public print, decided  recently that h������ wantod new cassocks and supplies for his choir. He  announced that a rocont Sunday collection at church would bo do voted to  his purpose,  "1 think thoro must he a little mls-  undorstandJnjf between us," was his  comment at overling norvice. "I. did  not ask you to glvo mo a surplico,  hut tho wholo of tho Gorleston parish choir. Thirty-two und six Js tho  amount of your onurlngs this morning,  '���������That will not go far toward doing  that, Now, quito frankly, I own that  a surpllewl choir Is n luxury which  is not in any way necessary to salvation. Tho cliuivhwiirdpiis tell tno  you uro too poor to provide surplices.

Kann?tti, M.P., one  of ihe candidates for the Mayoral  ,.ui;r of Dublin, does not spend the  rivtrs in quest of health, but goes  '.���������.anc''to his position as foreman over-  i-.cer on a Dublin evening paper,  where, he declares, he is much hap-  ;;ier getting out editions one after  another than in sitting in St. Stephen's hearing Saxon speeches. In his  youth, he was a Fenian, trusted in  the inner organizations, and in less  exciting times helped to found tho  first Homo itule Association in Liverpool. For years he has been associated .with the Labor party in  Dublin, which he will probably split  'f Aid. Dowd, another Labor represent alive, comes forward as a candidate for the Mayoralty. Mr. Nan-  netti succeeded Mr. .1. L. Carew as  member for the College Green division' when the latter broke with his  party over attending a levee by tho  l-'rince of Wales.   Men In Petticoats.  It" will probably be a matter "of surprise to the general reader to learn  that the petticoat was first worn exclusively by men. In the reign of King  Henry VII. the dross of the English  was so fantastic and absurd that it was  difficult to distinguish one sex from the  other. In the inventory of Henry V.  appears a "petticoat of red damask,  with open sleeves." There is no mention of a woman's petticoat before the  Tudor period.*.  Ileal Work.  "I've just been reading Gladstone's  life and the work he did. He governed the nation, wrote several books,  studied two languages, saw a hundred  people a day and answered all his mail,  besides sitting up all night reading  Homer."  "That's nothing.

In the column devoted to social  gossip appeared* a paragraph the other day which recorded that a gathering had been held in honor of a lady,  who had recently taken up her residence in the place. As is the wont of  the social chronicler, the costumes of  several of the ladies present were described, and tho mention of the eta-  mine, the voile; de soie, the bertha,  the chiilon, and the applique indicated that tho affair was held in a place  on tho highway of civilization. There  were charming young ladies in the  tc������.-room,' ana, indeed, all the resources and even superfluities that  aro considered indispensable to moderate comfort in this stage of being.  Such paragraphs may bo found in  newspapers every day, but what drew  attention to this one'particularly*  was that a person might have stood  on the spot where this gathering  took place five years ago, and unless  he had carefully grub-staked himself  would have been in danger of dying  from hunger before he could work  his way out of thc bewildering wilderness of woods and mountains that  rose all about him. For that was  what it was���������an untouched wilderness. Tho only trees that had ever  fallen in the thick fir. bush in the  valleys were tho������,e that had succumbed to age. The wild creatures of  stream and hillside did not know  man well, enough ��������� to be afraid of  him; and now within five years' space  we have a..well-grown town, with its  social gatherings made bright and  elegant by the rich fabrics of the  looms of France and Britain.  The matter is worth remarking, for  it constitutes a factor in every calculation that may be made as to  national growth. If we were to argue from Canadian progress in the  past to Canadian progress in the  future we would be egregiously misr  led, says The Toronto Globe. Five  years after John Gait cut the first  tree on the site of Guelph or Gait  there would scarcely have been receptions graced with Faris gowns  and the other luxuries that arrive in  a Rocky Mountain mining camp almost as soon as tho first, shipment  of ore goes out. Hon. James Young  in his "Public Men and Public Life  iii Canada" eays that even as late as  iS53 matters were decidedly rude,  raw,, and democratic in this Ontario  of ours. "Every thing," he flaj's,  [-"produced���������on-th-j-farm-or-manufac���������  tured. which required to be exported,  as well as all kinds of groceries,  hardware, and goods of every description imported into the interior  of the country, had to be laboriously  teamed by horses or oxen to or from,  tidewater. . . House of stons or  brick were still tho exception in ths  country. , . Tho surroundings of  all but ths wealthy classes, and especially of tho farmers, were rude  and backward, judged by present  standards, The houses of the latter  were scantily, often indeed " roughly,  furnished. In the country Canadian  homespun and the coarso tweeds and  othor woollens mado at the old-  fashioned woollen mills were still  generally patronized, Luxuries of all  kinds were scarce, . , There Was  neither tho wealth, tho conveniences,  the comforts, nor the pleasures which  are now enjoyed by tho great mass  of Canadians in all the well-settled  soctlons of tho Dominion,"  The Provlnco had been settled for  moro than fifty years, and yet these  wero tho conditions in tho fairest and  most fertile portions of it. It must  bo thought that we make moro pro-  gross to-day in five yoars than in  fifty in tho early days. Tho railroad  is undoubtedly the groat lover of pro-  gross, and tho speed of presont-day  settlement will bear the samo relation to tho settlement of tho past  that tho locotnotivo and cars boar to  tho springloss ox-cart on the corduroy roads of primitive Ontario.

'    Damp Weather and Health.  The influence of damp weather upon  sensitive people is remarkable. If there  is a sore spot anywhere it hurts more.  Latent weakness of any of the organs  is brought out by congestion and Irregularity of function. Suppressed coughs  start into activity and neuralgic nerves  speak out. Old chronic rheumatism renews its life, while corns are aggravated. The pulse is slow, the heart  weak.** the blood vessels lack tone, tlie  muscles are flabby, the venous and  lymphatic systems become engorged.  The mind n is languid and clouded.  There is a general depression of vitally- ��������� *;  ..The Coster'* Cnrl.  Many east London barbers, who have  been journeymen in many west end establishments, declare that young cos-  termongers and barmen, witb tho peculiar rolling curl that protrudes from  under the cap or bowler, are far more  particular about their hair than tlie  soiis of the aristocracy in general.  This same curl, standing forth from a  surface of hair that seems to have  been flatironed, is not achieved without much trouble." Scores of theso  young dandies of tho east subscribe to  a "toilet club" and have weekly attention given to their distinguishing curl  in a manner that might be expected  of a patrician beau.

LOVETT CAMERON,  Author of ������ Worth Winning," Etc  _,___r__|____-______'4  Kw7a^vi*%~M>WM!a  "Ohl hy tlio wny, you Had registered a very uncomplimentary vow tho  night before; you swore you would  never see mo again."  Captain Thistleby contemplated the  burnt ash of his cigar.  "I kept that vow very well, didn't  I?" ho said with a smile.  " Remarkably."  "What a funny girl you are!" were  his next words. "Do you know, you  have never asked me what brings mo  hero so suddenly, nor where I have  come from."  "Have I not? Where do you come  from?" I said indifferently, not caring much for the answer. That ho  stiouid be here at all was enough for  me. It did not occur to me to be  critical as to why or wherefore.  "Well, I have been at Newmarket,  where, with my usual luck, I have  lost my money. I am on my way  to town. I had to pass Sloppertow'n  Station; I thought I might as well  stop an hour or so. I am fortunate  in finding you. Your servant directed me to the field. I have called,  you know, to see if you ��������� had any  message for Bella, for I shall see her  in a day or two."  "No; I have nothing to send to  Bella," I answered, carelessly.  What did anything signify to me  now, since he had so plainly come  here for my sake, just to see me. It  almost irritated mo to think he  should frame so manyrelaborate excuses for coming. ������  I sat looking away from him,  across the valley, in silence, with a  great joy at my heart. Suddenly he  bent down and looked into my eyes.  "Child you look ever so glad to  see me!"  "Do you know that you cannot  hide your ��������� thoughts one bit? everything shows in your faco."   ���������  "I am," I answered, simply.  He closed his hand upon mine, and  held it0.tightly.   I~clid normSEeTven"  an effort to take it away from him.  I was too happy.  Surely now, I thought, he must seo  shat I love him. Surely now he will  say: "Givo up your engagement, and  come to me."-  I waited breathlessly, trembling  from head to foot for his next  words.  His next words wero as follows;  "You aro very foolish to sit on tho  grass in that thin dress; you will  catch cold. There was a heavy shower this morning."  I jumped up hurriedly.  "Yes, you are right," I said,  sharply, with a sort of discord in my  voice; "the grass is damp, and I am  very sorry I have sat here so long. I  am going in."  And I walked rapidly along the  narrow footway that led across tho  flold towards tho orchard, Captain  Thistleby following mo, since thero  waa no room for him by my sido,  Tho shallow stroam that divided  Farmer Rickett's field from our orchard was spanned from bank to bank  by a singlo plank.  "You have loft your sunshade under  the hayrick," said Captain Thistloby,, as wo reached it. "Wait an instant for mo, and I will go back and  fetch it."  - It was too truo. In my indignant  haste I had forgotton it, and my  companion had not beon slow to take  advantage of this point in his favor.  Common poUtoncss forced mo to  stand still until ht brought it to  tne.  X crossod tho stroam, and leant  against tho knotted trunk of an old  applo-troo awaiting his return,  Groat branches, heavily ladon with  crJmson-flufilu'd fruit, hung over my  hoad, and swept down on ������very side  of mo to tho ground, shadowing tho1  bluo of hoavon, nnd screening mo in A  frame-work of groonory. Fallon apples, somo rosy-rod, some croamy-  yollow, lay scuttored ovor tho short,  thick grass nt my foot, and tho clenr  brown stream rlpplod on with a pleasant murmur in front of mo.  Presently Mark Thistloby enmo  back to mo across tho rustic bridge,  with my sunshndo in his hnnd.  As ho camo up to me our eyes met  suddenly, Captain Thistloby forgot  to glvo mo iny sunshado; instead of  doing so, ho first took iny hand, nnd  then drow mo closo to him���������-so clowo  that my heud luy for ono blewed  minute upon.! his broast, whilst h\t\  tip* touuiou mine.  Then ho /.ait n.o i-Mddenly from Wm  "It is hard to give you up," lio  said in a brokon volco. "I ought  novor to havo como horo, Freda; J  hove dono you a groat wrong, 1 fear,  When T mmt* in stnv nt ("hartley I  was desperate, darling���������so dospornto  that I had mado up my mind that I  would mako you my own at any  ���������"ost; but I havo thought, bottor of it  hlnco. I lovo you too woll to drag  you through troublo and disgrace."  "Tin you think I should caro?" I  broko in, passionately. "Uo you sup-  pnao it would matter to me what  was snid of me?"  I longed to tell him that I loved  him so dearly that to give up wealth  and position for his sake would be  no troublo, but only a happiness���������  that   to  be thought worthier*   and  heartless by the world would not disgrace me so much in my own eyes as  to marry ono man whilst I loved  another.  I longed to tell him this; but Murk  Thistleby did not ask me for iny  love. . He drew my head down again  upon his shoulder, and softly stroked  my hair.  "My little darling," he said tenderly, "I have come here to-day to  wish you good-bye forever. Had our  lives been differently shaped, we  might have been very happy together; but it cannot be. Thero are  things between us 'that can never be  swept away. Don't cry, sweet lovo;  you will be happy by-and-by, when,  all this is gone by. I wanted you  to know that I really loved you, because sometimes I have been afraid  that" you had accused me of trifling  with you. I am a bad man in many  ways; but, believe me, when I tell  you that my love for you has been,  and will ever be, the purest thing in  my life, and that is why I will not  spoil your life for you."  I clung to him, weeping.  * 'There is no disgrace���������nothing  that I would not bear for your  sake," I .said, brokenly.  He held me tightly to his heart in  silence.  "How sweet,    *���������  After long grief and pain,  To feel my true love's arms  About me once again."  Alas! why did it not last forever.  Looking ,back upon that moment of  joy in after years, I can truly say  that greatly as I suffered later, that  instant of happiness was cheaply purchased at the expense of all that w'as  to come. ;  "Darling, I, must go," he said,  gently withdrawing himself from my  arms.  __"AhLwiH_y_Pu_not explain to'PieIV  I cried, despairingly:     Since    I Had'  found mv lover, it seemed so hard tn  .am go. "Mark, why   must   you  j'.avo me? I love you so!"  "Hush!"., he interrupted, quickly,  ��������� laying his hand upon my lips, "don't  tell me so. I know it well enough,  darling; but don't tell mc of it; it  would make it too hard to leave  you. Believe mo it is best. Nothing  can alter what is, and I will not  spoil your life. Perhaps, by-and-by,  thc day may come; but now I must  go."  IIo took both my hands, ono in  each ot his, and one after tho other  raised them to his lips, kissing them  hungrily and Iingerlngly; and then ho  dropped them suddenly, and, turning1  from mo, strode away through vtho  applo trees���������a tall, strong figuro in  dark relief against tho primrose evening sky; whilst I,sank prone upon  the grass whoro he had left me, and  wept as I havo novor wept again.  CHAPTER XV.  I never quite know how it came  about, or why I did it, nor what  woro the immodiato influences which  ��������� drovo mo to commit tho wildest,  maddest, most indefensible action of  my lifo.  It was a week before my wedding-  day. I was sitting up vory lato at  night alone in my little room, The  window was uncurtained, tho moonlight shono in and lay in a cold, palo  stream across tho shabblly-carpotod  floor. I loant my arms upon tho  window-sill, and my chin upon my  hands, and lookod out.  The npplo trees in tho orchard below woro all Jn a denso, dork matt*  of shadow, save whero tho starlight  hart hore and thoro caught and silvered their topmost branches," the  valley beyond was filled with a hu/y  light; tho background of hills was  shudowy and indistinct; only iho  groat chalk-pit shono out in tho din*  tauco, whlto and gleaming up Inst,  Iho gray hill in which Jt was Imbedded,  I. was thinking of nothing In particular. I ft.lt only a weary sense  of isolation and hopelessness, llko  one who. tired of stri.gglliig iipliist  tho strong tldo of a stream, lots  himself glide on in tho eddying waters, cmi'oJobs of whero thoy may carry  him,  Thoro was an absoluto sllonro in  the air; not a breath of wind ruffled  tho troos; not a living croaturostli*-  it;ii upon tie: i.i. I.,, ..ul n ���������),.*.). .,,  Irjjf dropped to the ground hi tin.  dark gardon below.  Suddonly from afar, across tlio val.  loy, camo tho low, faint sound of a  railway-whistle. I llstonod to it  lunfllosslv. idly, as ono listens who  hears not, until It diod awny, And  then all nt onco, llko a flash of lightning boforo my oyes, liko a thunderclap Into my honrt, como a thought,  a word���������escape! Why should I not  go whilo it was yot timo? What a  fon] T wn* to sit still and await my  destruction, whon flight and liberty,  end perhaps i>von happiness wns still  within my reach.  Whoro was Bella's letter? Whnt had  sho said about lending ino her  houso? With trembling hands I flow  to my dressing-table, and struck a  match, and then ransacked the draw  er of my little writing-table until I  found it.  She- had told mo to go up to her  house if I wanted to make use of it.  Evidently her servants were there.  Sho said how gladly she would have  had me for her companion abroad,  and I knew her well enough to feel  sure that these wero no idle words.  Bella loved mo dearly; she would  give a good deal to save me from a  marriage to" which she had always  strongly objected. ������  She was now no further off than  Paris. I would go to her; it would  be easy for mo to follow her there.  I would go up to hor iiouso in Chester Square, tolegraph to her from  there, and start as soon as possible.  Only what I had to do must be dono  at once���������at onco.  If I waited till the morning my  courage would fail, and another day  would bo wasted; besides tho opportunity to escape would perhaps be  wanting.  In a few moments my plans wero  matured. I glanced at tho clock, it  was twenty minutes past twelve, and  the express was due at Narborough  at five minutes after two. Narborough was five miles off, but I was a  good walker���������I had been there on,  foot onco before. It would tako mo  a good hour and a-half to get there.  I had no time to lose.  . I thrust a few necessaries hastily  into my traveling-bag, and a five-  pound note, a present from my aunt,  into my purse, dressed myself hurriedly in a dark woollen dress and  jacket, and tied a black veil over my  hat. And then I sat down to perform the hardest task of all. Drawing my writing-case towards me, I  wrote, with a trembling hand;  "Dearest Father,���������  "Do not be very angry with me. I  cannot marry Mr. Curtis. I have  gone up to London to Bella Thistleby's house for a day, and then I  shall join her in Paris. You would  not like mo to be miserable, dear papa; and I should be if I married Mr.  Curtis, for, good as he is, I do not  love him. I will write to him from  Paris. Ask him to forgive me. Dear  papa, don't be anxious about :no, I  will come back in a few weeks.���������  Your unhappy child,  "FREDA."  Then, like a guilty creature, I put  out my candle and crept out into the  darkened, silent house. How the  stairs creaked under my descending  footsteps! I stopped and shivered,  hardly daring to breathe, as I passed my aunt's door. Half way down,  -on~a~little-square-landingr-was-s^-the  door of my father's room. Softly I  turned the handle, and stepped into  tho room. I. do not know what made  me go in. I might have left the note  in his study; but a certain . remorse  for ti-fc sorrow I was about to bring  upon, him- stung my heart. I must  see the old man onco more before I  went.   ���������-������������������������������������������������������.  Tho moonlight shone in across tho  narrow, iron bedstead, my father lay  still in deep, untroubled slumber. I  stooped down over him, and fancied  as I did so that ho looked strangely  gray and aged to-night. As I noted  tho worn lines round his mouth, the  angular outline of his pale old faco.  the thin gray hairs scattered over  his pillow, my heart almost misgave  me at leaving him so selfishly; but  aa in a moment of doubt, I stooped  down and kissod him softly, tho  clock below in the hall struck half-  past twelve.  Five minutes more ond I should  lose tho train���������my opportunity  would bo lost,.probably forever. I  stooled my heart, and turned swiftly  from tho room.  The front door was locked and barred; but many a summer's night in  tbe years of my childhood had I  crept out of tho study window on  applo depredations intent. I had not  forgotton tho way to "softly unbar  the shutter and to creep out through  the French window. Flvo minutes  later I was outside, flying across tho  silent garden and through tho shadowy orchard, undiscovered and safo.  I was in the opon meadows, a rapid  scramble across a wot ditch nnd a  gap in the hod go and 1 wub landed  in the high road, speeding along as  fast as my swift footsteps could  boar mo, alono in tlio sllonco ot tho  night.  I was very tired boforo I got to  Narborough���������vory tired and footsore. Onco I nearly gavo in and  turned back, so appalling was tho  lone darkness of tho way, anil so  muddy was tho road along which my  tired steps plodded entllesHly, It  seemed oh if I should never get thoro  ���������as if it must bo ten miles instead  of flvo, and thon if I woro to miss  thn train, if I reached tho station  just too Into, nnd hnd to como all  tho way back, if ho, I knew 1 Bhould  novor go through it all again I I  should sit down and accept my fa to,  and marry, Mr. Curtis decorously  that day week, and bo miserable ovor aftor.  i\o; if i dm nut liy ioioy,)ii I  phtitdd iivwv l)y ol nil. And tin. br.rr-  thought ot having to trudgo all  that weary way back again mado mo  hurry on breathlessly, till nt lust the  madness of tho deed I was doing was  lost In the nhet>r ti-rrnr of being too  lato for tho train.  Tho station was nearly dwiortod  when at last, panting and woary, 1  reached its friendly lights. Thoro  scorned to bo no pasnongors on tho  platform, only ono sloopy portor who  stared at me very hnrd as I went  into tho booklng-oflice to tako my  tlrkot.  "London, miss? Any luggogo?'" he  laid, peering rather curiously at mu,  I drew my veil down lower over  my faco as X muttered an unintelligible reply.  Presently tht white lights   of tho  engine gleamed out in the distance,  and tho train rushed into tho station. I jumped into it unnoticed in  the confusion of its arrival, and in  five minutes more thc deed was done,  and I was borne swiftly away 'into  the darkness of the night.  I shall never forget tho misery   of  that journey.      In order to    economize my slender means, I had  taken  a third-class ticket. A working man  in a fustian   jacket, and   a   woman  with a crying baby and a big chocked bundle, were my fellow-travelers.  Thc   man   was unwashed    and    unkempt, and   smelt    of bad tobacco."  Tlie woman kept drinking every  five '  minutes out of a black bottle which  sho carried in a basket,    and which |  emitted a suspicious odor of gin.  Sickened and disgusted, I turned  my faco rosolutoly out of tho open  window, and tried to inhalo tho  sweet night scents of the woodland  country through which the train was  rushing, till at last, wearied out  with conflicting emotions, I sank  back into my corner and slept.  Whon I awoke it was five o'clock,  and tho train was steaming into  Euston Station. Thero was not a  cab to be seen; so weary and footsore as 1 was already, with my long  walk into Narborpugh, I was, perforce, obliged to go forth on foot towards Bella's house in Chester  Square. When I got there a fresh  disappointment awaited me. I , could  not rouse any ono in the house. In  vain I rang and rang violently first  at one bell and then at the other.  I hoard the loud clanging through  the silence of the morning, but no  ono from within answered my, summons. Then I recollected that as  Bella was abroad, tho house was in  all probability left under the caro of  one servant, and that she most likely slept in tho attics, and could not  hear my frantic peals at the hall-  bell, more especially if her bedroom  was at the back of tho house.  As I stood thus, shivering and  nearly worn out with fatigue, with  hot tears of disappointment and  misery welling up into my eyes, a  policeman came up behind me, and  asked me, somewhat suspiciously,  what I Was about. I hailed his appearance with positive rapture, and  turned to him eagerly.  "Oh! do help me!" I cried, pite-  ously, clasping my hands together.  "How can I get into this house? 1  can't wake anybody up."  The man    eyed    me narrowly.     I  think he was debating   in    his   own  mind whether a woman found   alone  at five o'clock in the morning,-ring-  _ihg_at_aj������xuse door, 'should not,   hy  every known rule of his order, be described as "drunk and disorderly,"  and be dealt with accordingly. But  I suppose something in my dress and  voice must have shown him that I  was a lady, for, after a minute's hesitation, he answered mo quite civilly:  "You'll not bo likely to find anybody awake, miss, for tho next two  hours. You had best go to an Hotel  and wait."  "But I don't know where to go.  Can you toll me?" I said, despairingly.    .  "Well, miss, I do know a respectable littlo family hotel in tho  Strand, as is vory likely to bo open  at this hour. Should I walk with  you to a cab, miss, and give you tho  address?"  I jumped at the offor with alacrity,  and prosontly we actually did find a  cab, and I parted from tho friendly  policeman with exaggerated expressions of gratitude,, which wero , not,  howovor, a whit too strong for what  I felt for him nt that moment,  Tho "littlo dingy hotel" turned out  to bo a small inn, of a very dingy  description. A sleepy waitor admitted mo, and showed me into a cheerless little sitting-room, where, how-  over, I was thankful to throw myself  upon tho hard horse-hair sofa, upon  which I soon fell into aa uneasy  iilumbor.  CHAFTEUXVI.  I was roused by tho sunshine coming In through the uncurtained window, ond by the ontranoo of tho  samo wnltor who had shown me into  tho room, and who now enmo to ask  mo if I would tako any breakfast,.  I ordered something to eat, and  thon mechanically opened i,i,y tinvcl-  Mng-bug, and sought my purse, imagine my horror when iv was no-  whora to bo found! I turned out ul)  tho contents of my bag upon tho  floor, nnd emptied my pockets; AU  Jn vain!   My purse was gono!  I hud hud ,a few Hhllllnjis looso in  a small inner pocket of my jacket,  out of which 1 had paid tho cub-  man; of this thoro remained to mo  four shillings und sixpence���������not u  farthing moro.  How I had lost my purse I could  not imagine; although I romnmborod  now having opened my bna; whilst in  tho train, and possibly my travelling companions, tho dirty-looking  mt*������-   ned   thn  n'nnttn  **d*h  I'm   fdn-  hottlo, hnd abstracted it whilst I  Slept.  What was to bo dono? I know  that four-and-fcix would probably  not ovon pay for tho wretched room  I was in und for tho simple break-  last i haa oiuoieii.  I sank down upon the sofa in perfect dospair, and then all at onco  I thought of whnt I would do,  I would sond for Captain Thistloby. Even as I mado the rosalvo I  blushed hotly at my own boldness.  But, after all, what elno could 1  do? Had ho not said that he would  help mo and be my friend nlwnys,  and to whom olso could I turn in my  need?  I started up, and rang the bell.  "Can yon send out a telegram for  me?" I asked of the nan who ans  wered my summons.  "Yes, ma'am, I will take it at  once for you."  "I am expecting a friend from  Hounslow; can I stay here, in this  room,* until* he comes?"  "Certainly, ma'am."  The waiter got me a telegraph  form, and I sat down and wrote:  "I am in great trouble and distress. Will you come to mo at  once? "FREDA."*  Having despatched the telegram, I  felt that a weight was taken oft my ���������  mind, and I sat down with some  amount of appetite to cat my modest and not over tempting-looking  breakfast.  It was twelve o'clock before any  answer came to my summons; but  whon at last, sick with anxiety and  suspense, I watched a hansom dash  suddonly up to thc door, my spirits  roso at onco, for my lover was, in-  sido it.  "Freda! what is the matter? Good  heavens! what brings you hero in  this wretched place?" he cried, as  he entered.  Ho looked pale and agitated, as if  my telegram had thoroughly frightened him, as, indeed, I beliove it  had. For all answer, I dropped my  head down upon the table in front of  me, and burst into tears.  Mark Thistleby stood by, looking  the picture of ^misery and distress.  He was very honorable, was my  handsome lover. He did not move a  stop nearer to me, or call me by any  loving words, or attempt to comfort me in any way. I dare say he  was longing, poor fellow, to take me  in his strong arms, and to pillow my  poor littlo sobbing frame against his  breast. But he did not forget that,  in less than a week, I was to be the  wife of another man, and that It was  too late for any demonstrative expressions of sympathy. He simply  stood there, opposite me, with the  whole width of the table between us,  and looked indefinitely distressed and  miserable.  "What can I'do for you?" he said,  piteously; "for God's salfe! tell mo  what is the matter?"  And then I looked up through, my  tears, and smiled at him.  "I am very stupid, am I not, to  cry like a baby? It is only because  I am tired arid worn out, and because���������oh! I am so glad to sec you!  Nothing very dreadful has happened.  I am only, like the naughty boys in  story-boots.

"You have run nway from home!"  he repeated, looking at me with    a  sort   of   dismay.     "And���������and   your,  marriage?���������Mr, Curtis?"  "I am not going to be married. I  will never, marry Mr, Curtis 1" I.cry  passionately. "I am going to Paris  to join Bella."  Oh! why. does he not look glnd?  Why does ho not cry "Thank God!"  and roach out his arms to me���������tho  dear arms in which I long to take  shelter? With a mute dismay I look  at him and seo no joy, no gladness  in his face; only a palo, misorablo  face, and sad, aching eyes, that look  at mo with an evei^-increasing despair. ������������������      ������������������      *..       .      ,;..

C. McChm  By HARLE OWEN CUMMINS  Considering that Greyson and Bradbury were both ardent enthusiasts at  the game, it was not surprising tbat  they should have decided to let golf be  the arbiter of their fates. The two  young men were desperately in love  with Marcia Van Znndt. So, for that  matter, were half a dozen others of the  male contingent at Westerfeldt. But  all recognized that Greyson and Bradbury were the two favorites, and tbe  withdrawal of one of them from the  field would naturally place the other  In a fair position to win out.  It was Bradbury who offered the  challenge of a nine hole match, the  loser of which should immediately  pack bag and baggage and decamp.  Greyson had considered the proposition for a brief minute, then accepted,  nnd a elate was set for the trial of  skill.  It was a fair contest, even though  there was a difference of four in the  records of the two players. Bradbury's  best score for the nine holes was thirty-seven, but he was very erratic, usu-(  ally playing somewhere in the neighborhood of forty.' kreyson, however,  had never played around in better than  forty-one, but he was as steady as a  machine and could be depended upon  not to vary from that score by more  than one or two strokes. .   i  Probably the explanation of the dlf:,  ference "in their, playing was to be  found In the respective habits of the  two men, for while Greyson was notljln  the least what bne^would call a'rabid  downstairs with tbe long hross foot  rail.  On the momentous day which was to  decide their fates tbe two men with  their caddies sought the links. Scotty  Ferguson, the red haired, freckled faced  little chap who carried Greyson's bag,  had been his club bearer ever since the  latter's arrival at the hotel andjhad  it proved even worse than usual, for he  topped his ball twice arid then broke  his midiron just above the whipping  while trying to recover. The next two  holes were halved in four each, so that  the score as the two players walked up  to the eighth tee was 35 to 33 in Bradbury's favor.  Whether it was the result of an overindulgence in "rickles" on the previous  evening, overconfidence in victory or  whether it was due simply to nervousness on account of the size of the  stakes for which they were playing  will never be known, but tor some  ���������noiise Bradbury went to the bad on the  eighth hole, and it cost him six Dexore  he holed it, whereas he usually played  it in four, as his, companion succeeded  in doing.  Greyson's lead of three on this hole  just made up for tbe same number he  had made on the fifth, so that the score  at the last green was again tied at  thirty-nine.  There was an air of suppressed excitement about both players and caddies as Greyson built his tee and prepared to drive for the last time. The  ninth hole is about 200 yards and is located on the farther side of a little  hill, so that only tbe upper half of the  red flag is visible from where the driver stands. Scotty, the caddie, had  gone oii ahead, and when Greyson's  ball just cleared the brow of the hill  he followed quickly after it and disappeared over the other side.  He found that tire ball had landed in  the middle of a bunch of fog, so that it  lay in an almost unplayable position.  It was the work of but a moment to  kick the ball sharply from its resting  place toward the hole; then he ran back  to the top of the hill and shouted:  "You're dead, two feet from the hole,  Mr. Greyson. Jt's a <3nch for two."  "'Then the rfekieis, or the nerves, or  something or other, got to work on  Bradbury, again, for he sliced his drive,  and the ball fell within,a hundred  a recent importation from the Emerald  Isle, to tell him that dinner was ready.  "When the waitress knocked, the new  boarder was unpacking his valise. Responding to a second knock, he stood at  the door holding a set of false teeth in  one hand and a nail file in the other  and said:  "Yes, 1*11 be diQwn in a minute."  The domestic stared at him in amazement, and returning to tbe dining room  announced sharply:  "He'll be down, ma'am, as soon as he  sharpens his teeth."���������New York Press.  Mnrringe Superstition*.  Matrimony is surrounded with superstitions, many of which apply only to  the marriage ceremony. The wedding  ring is made plain and thick only for  the reason that its thickness and plainness secure it against breakage, for to  break it is the very worst of luck for  both bride and groom. White is the  best color to get married in, but a widow mny marry in any color save yellow. Should a bride drop one of her  gloves woe betide her! She must exer-  i else great care in getting in and out of  her carriage, and a false step is an Ul  omen which brings niisf or^mc.

Tho Now Toronto   Clearing House  in. the building of tho Bank of British    '-North     America,     corner     of  Yonge and   Wellington   streets, was  opened for business on ������ recent morning in the last month of 1003.   The  clearing house is situated on the. first  flat above the ground floor, and is a  handsome, spacious apartment 49 by  15 feet.   The room is well lighted by  large windows    and the    furnishings  are all done in finely polished quart-  cr-cut oak, tho wall panelings being  of oak, and    green and red plaster,  and the floor of polished wood.   In a  semi-circle round the  room  are   arranged the   desks   for  the    various  banks, while near the centre is the  desk for    the  manager,   Mr. G. \V.  Yarker.   Provision has been made for  twenty-four banks,    but at   present  only nineteen of theso desks are    jn  use,  as there are only that number  of hanks in the city.  Four massive pillars, fifteen feet  high, support thc ceiling; and the  carving of the woodwork abovo the  entry, and of the panelings, is very  -artistic:   poses. The Bulkeley Valley is, says  Mr. Findlay, well mineralized in copper and gold. Intending settlers havo  pre-empted a good deal of land thero  within the past few years. From Bella Coola a flno valley runs up into  the famous gold country, comprehensively called Omineca, while farther on is tho celebrated Chilcoten  ranching country. For a railway th������  grades would be easy. The chief settlement has been by a colony of.Norwegians, .who were taken there during  Col. Baker's incumbency of the Provincial Secretaryship. They have already broken considerable grounJ,.  and are raising cattle and grain.  rrlnolpal Story ia lt*ontr������ol.  Montreal many years ago had a  tall, handsome young Scotchman as  assistant minister of St. Andrew's  Church. His name was Robert Story.  To-day ho is Principal Story, of  Glasgow University, and tho " othor  day ho was telling the young lady  students of the commerdal capital  of Scotland that their mental culture  will not expand over reading the novels of Annio.

Tall, white,, bearded, with  handsome flashing black eyes, the  Princrpal carries him.������olf with , tho  mien of an old-time cardinal. In debate in the Established General Assembly he is feared for the keenness  of his replies, couched in irony which  no member can equal. An example of  his withering retort may be given.  An officer in the suite of the Lord  High Commissioner had. in the lobby  of the Assembly, accidentally entangled his spur In the Principal's  robe and torn it. Profuso apologies  followed, but the Principal was not  to be placated. Staring at the delinquent with his haughtiest gaze.  Principal Story icily remarked: "An  officer of Volunteers. I presume?".

The messengers take thf;ir  places in a line outside of the semicircle of desks,0 each opposite the  desk assigned to, his bank, while on  the opposite side of each desk is a  olerk of the bank represented by that  dc-sk.  The hour for making the exchanges   or general    delivery   is 10 a.m.  Just previous to "that timo the manager takes his position at an elevated desk near tho centre of the chamber and calls the houso to order.   At  ihe   stroke,   of   ten each   messenger  moves forward to tho desk noxt his  own and delivers the envelopes containing    tho cheques,   etc.,   for tho  ��������� bank'represented    by that desk    to  tho   clerk on the    inside.   The messenger   immediately    passes   to tho  next desk, dolivoring   tho exchongea  for   tho bank   represented by    that  desk, and so on until ho has made  tho circuit of the room, nnd reached  his   own desk,   tho starting  point,  having delivered tb each bank   the  oxchanges ho had for it, and    con-  soquontly delivering   his entiro   ox-  chnngos for all   tho banks.

At all times a perfect mob of Ideas  And words stands at the gate leading into the mind, trying to get in.

All the others it keeps shooting away with: "Get bifek there! Goon  away!" It is this iuhihltive faculty  that keeps us sane. But In order to  reach the general paralysis of sleep we  bave to pass through a preliminary  stage wherein we are as foolish us any  lunatic. When tho sentinel at the gate  of the mind goes off duty for the night  the mob of irratioual ideas and words  comes trooping in. und so when I would  court sleep I deliberately open the door  of my mind to the rabble, turning  loose upon it a troupe of unrelated  words and phrases.

Some of  these were seen and examined by Columbus, and to his thoughtful mind  they were confirming evidence of tho  fact that strange lands wore not far  to the westward. Theso woods were  carried by the gulf stream and by the  prevailing grinds from the American  continent, so that in part the gulf  stream is responsible for the discorerj  of the new world.

A Discrepancy In Aeea Caused Him  Uneasiness.  Many of the boys la the vicinity of  little Bobby's home were from, three  to six years older than he and, after  the manner of small boys, objected to  having one so much younger take an  active part in their games. When  six-year-old Bobby protested against  this his nurse and mother explained  and excused this grievous condition of  affairs by explaining tbat they -were  ���������'too old" for him. Bobby received this  explanation in silence and, while not  satisfied, remembered Jt  A few days later Bobby, wbo had  been up to somo small mischief, was  reproved by his nurse. After explaining that what he had done waa  naughty ln order to make ber reproof  moro impressive she told him tbat God  would not approve of it. On bearing  this Bobby thought hard for a moment.  "Is God older than I am?" he finally  Inquired.  "Oh, yos, dear! A great deal older/  replied his nurse.  "How old ls God?" was the next  query.  "Very, very old. Older thon the bud  or tbe earth or anything you can see,"  "Is he a million years old?"  "Yes, moro tbon that."  Bobby gave a little sigh.  "Oh, dear! I guess he's too old for  me, then. That's probably tbe reason  why we cau't agree, It's too bad.  First it was tbe boys tbat were too  old for me, and now it's God. Iff  dreadful hard being only its yean  ���������Id.

"For the last twenty moathi I have been  comparatively free, as one or two attempted  visitations have been immediately stamped  out by tho assistanco of Blair's Pills,  "Truly yours, (Signed) Saul.

G    E.,  Armstrong, It. -N., gives an interest- j  inn dercriptioh. of  the  Whitehead  torpedo, that deadly weapon which  the-: Japanese have  already  put  to  fuch  destructive use   ngoinst  the  Eusskn ships at Port Arthur.    Mr  Whitehead's invention may he de-  bcrihed without.fear of exaggera ion,  gays the wiiier, as the most truly  ingenious and complicated piece cf  mechanism which the mind of man  lias hitherto produced.   The Whitehead torpedo is 40  years old,  but  ts form to-day is as different from  what it was in the first year of its  ejUBtfcp.ee as the latest type of express locomotive   is from   Gtorge  Stephenson's <i]d "Rocket".     The  original  design  has been entirely  abandoned,   and   after  a   lengthy  period of expjei'in'i-j-u". und aeoi������i con-  siruciicn'j he.

It io described a- a  ci#ir shaped object  made of  s'l^.i  16 ft. 1\ ins. long and 17.7*2 inches  in di'������u>eter at it*thickest part.   It  is divided into five compartment**,  namely, the   explosive   head, air  chamber, balance chamber, engine  compartment and bouyancy chamber.    In the rear of all are tho  propellers and rudders.    Tho head  of the torpedo iu the latest patterns  js bluff, like thut of any find*, which  is remarkable, for   its speed  and  power of turning; and, so ns to render the reflection,from Nature complete, the eh.ipo tapers away to tho  tail.   After the torpedo U placed  inside the tube, which is closed by  a hinged door, it is blown out either  by compressed air suddenly injuct-  ed into the rear end or by an impulse charge of a few ounces of powder.   The moment it reaches tho  water its mechtuiisni is set in motion, driving it along in tho direction aimed at with a speed of about  25 knots, at tlie same time maintaining a uniform depth of about  10 feot,   Tho extraordinary Huccets  which attended tho attack of tho  Japanese dosiroyorsat Port Arthur  U������8, obi-ems Mr Armstrong, afford  ed the world an obj.ot let-son regarding the capabilities of tho torpedo when used from debtrovers or  torpedo boats against a fleet at anchor.  i--~ 'ii...|,->."....ji'������|.a!i|j.|.w|P8  G, R.
