By W. W. Hines  Copyright, IOC*"*, by T. 0. McClure  ( "The clouds are so white and the sky  bo blue and 1 am so happy," said the  ��������� Birl.  1 "The sky is blue���������so blue���������almost as  blue as your eyes, but I don't believe  that I am happy," said the man, trailing his paddle.  . "But you should be happy," said the  girl. "It is a perfect day and tonight  we are going to leave to take up our  work again. You love your work, don't  you?"  "Y-e-s, I suppose I do," the man replied hesitatingly. "But there are bo  many other things I love; for instance"���������  "The white clouds, the blue sky and  drifting in a canoe. You are a bit lazy,  I am afraid."  "1 didn't mean the clouds, nor the  Bky, nor drifting in a canoe. I meant  ���������but it can make little difference to  you what I did mean. Do you remember that little verse of Reilly's���������  "Where shall -we land?  God's grace!  j      I know not any place  So fair as this,  Swung here between the blue  Of sea and sky, with you  To ask me with a kiss,  'Where shall we land?' "  "That's a very pretty verse," said the  girl. "But I haven't asked you with���������  with anything where we shall land.  We shall land at the hotel from which  we started an hour ago, and it's almost  time to start back. I expect my part  in the afternoon mail, and I am dying  to see it."  :   "You love yoitf work so much, then?"  "Belter than anything else in the  world." ��������� f '*'..*,..  "I have read the book and I think the  part will fit you," said the man. "One  book reviewer said that the heroine  was the most appealing type ever presented in fiction."  "Your speech  was  almost pretty,"  said the girl.   "At any rate, it's by far  -the - nicest-thing-you-have-said-to-me  this summer.   But you say that I can't  act."  "No more you can," said the man  cheerfully. "You don't have to, you  know. Besides, remember that I tempered my criticism."  "I have it by heart," said the girl.  "You did sny some rather nice things  about my looks and my personality.  So I am inclined to be lenient with you.  #5^  p.f'i'v'/''  ���������'J   TTAVK  RKAU  THR  TJOOK  AV0 T TnWK  TUK V.XUV WitiU PIT MOV," HAW MB,  But do you ronlly numn to sny that  you tlilnk I novor will becomo u groat  adr-x.iV"  "Tlifi'O Is about ns much clmnce of  your becoming a grout notrosw nn there  Is for Puss going Into musical comody.

"I'm paid to go," said the man, grinning.  "And do you only come when you  are compelled to do so?"  "You played in New York sixty*three  times last year. Of course, I was them  the tirst night." ,  '���������Yos, to write your horrid criticism.  But didn't you come any more?"  "I dropped In occasionally. Sixty-  one times. I think the 'ocoaslonnllv'  was. Once I had another first night  to cover."  "That's better, ever bo much better.  Now tell me why you dropped in for  the sixty times you didu't have to  coino."  "Not for art's sake."  "Then it must have been for the  same reason that"���������  "I didn't admit it to myself until I  mot you this summer, but it is a fact."  "The sky is so blue- and the clouds  are so white and I am so happy."  There was the lilt of a song in her  voice as she repeated the words.  "Of course you are happy. You are  young and beautiful���������and everything.  Why shouldn't you be happy ?"  "I am happy���������for many reasons.  One of the reasons is that you come  to see me for the same reason that  other people do."  "If we go back to the hotel you will  find your part waiting for you and will  take the train back to town tonight?"  as a question.  "Yes, rehearsals begin the first of th-J  week!"  "And If we go back to the hotel I  will take the afternoon train back to  town and smoke and write and be  lonely and miserable all this winter,"  as a statement.  "I can't help It if you do.   It isn't >  my fault that jtou are going to smoke  and write and be miserable."  "I was Just telling you what would  happen if we land at the hotel."  "But where in the world would we  land if not at the hotel ?"  "On the other side of the lake is a  village, a beautiful little village."  "Yes, I have been there. But what  has that to do with the question of  where we land?"   .  "There Is a quaint, old fashioned  __churg_On_t__j village and a __uaint_  priest in the church."  "Yes?"    .  "If we land at the village, you can  Bend a telegram to your manager telling him that you have retired from the  stage."  "What a preposterous idea! Why  should I send bim such a foolish telegram?"  "So that I need never be lonely or  miserable again."  "Take care or you will upset th*!  canoe!" ,  "Where shall we land?"  "In the rlyer, If you are not careful."  "Will ybu be serious ?"  "Wo will both be very serious and  very wet if you upset the canoe."  "What ls your answer?"  "Are you sure there Is a telegraph  office In the village?"  "I do Insist," said the major.  So the girl counted seven buns into a  paper bag and gave them to the major,  who went home greatly elated with his  success.  "Look what firmness can do," he said  to his wife.  "I got seven for sixpence."  "Yes," said his wife, "but you have  been cheated. "These are ha'penny  buns!"���������Spare Moments.  Fata Silver In HU Coffee.  Two business men were hastily eating their midday luncheon in a Chestnut street cafe a few days ago when  one of them, in attempting to drink a  cup of scalding coffee, set it down  with an exclamation of pain as the hot  fluid burned his throat, "It is a poor  waiter," remarked the other, "who  does not see that coffee is of a proper  temperature before he puts it on the  table. But Just place a silver spoon  in that and in a very short time It will  be cooler." He explained that silver  Is a wonderful absorbent of heat and  carries it out of the coffee. He added  that he had a friend who had a silversmith make two small bars of solid  silver which he uses at home for cooling his coffee.���������Philadelphia Itecord.

Her Money Saved Her.   To hear the lady try to sing  Humor and Philosophy  By DUNCAN M. SMITH  Copyright. 1904, by Duncan M. Smith.  OF COURSE.  Hts new umbrella wasn't wh-Jre  He knew he put it yesterday;  He said! he'd searched with greatest  care,  But it had simply got away.  He questioned every one at hand  And asked the boys which one had  sneaked  His pet umbrella from the stand  The last  time that the skies had  leaked.  Within a closet, dark, remote,  A place where many things he flung,  He stepped to get his overcoat,  And there his lost umbrella hung.  He gazed with unbelieving eyes;  Amazement o'er his visage spread.  He took lt down in shamed surprise.  "Now,  what'd you think of that?"  he said.  "But won't the fellows question now,  When out I this umbrella bring,  And ask me when and where and how?  I wish I hadn't found the thing."  Wanted Him oh the String,  "Miss   Blinks,"   said  the  impatient  young man, "for three months I have  waited for an answer, and you still  keep putting me off." *.*".;*.  "Are you certain you love me, Freddie?" ������������������'.;:'  "Love you? I could die for you!"  "And should I tell you that there was  an obstacle In the way of our marriage  could you wait for ten or fifteen years,  though without a definite promise to  marry you at the end of that time?'"  "With the possibilities of winning  you I could wait forever if I were to  receive the faintest ray of hope."  "All right, Freddie, You Just wait  around, and if I don't land something  better I will probably marry you as a  last resort."  HOT WEATHER DANGERS  More little ones die ..during the hot  months than at any other soason.  At this timo stomach arid bowel troubles assume their most dangerous  form, and sometimes a few hours delay in the treatment means the loss  of a little life. Baby's Own Tablots  is tho best medicine in tho world to  prevent these troubles, or to cure  them if they attack the little ones  unexpectedly. Every mother should  havo a, box of theso tablets in the  house���������their prompt use may save a  child's life. Mrs. Arthur Cote, St,  Fortunat, Que., says: "My little  ono was greatly troubled with colic  and bowel trouble, but since using  Baby's Own Tablots the trouble has  disappeared,' and sho is growing  nicely and .has .good health." These  Tablots aro guaranteed to contain  no opiates, and ore safe for a new  born baby or a well grown child.

I am the owner of a pony and a small  black pig, which, after the manner of  tho country, runs loose and rinds its  own food. Tho pony is kept stabled at  night, but for part of tho day Is out  grazing and is fed with corn every  morning near tho dining room window.  The corn is put Jn a box which rests on  tho ground. Whon tho pony comes ho  Is always accompanied by the pig, who  sits botweon hia foro feot and occasionally takes a llttlo corn himself, If  ho tnkos too much tho pony gives him  a gontlo blto, as a reminder not to bo  greedy.

Lord Strathcona and His Career-Incidents  Which Show tbe Trend of the Character  of a Shrewd, Forceful Kan-How He  Fat Up a Subscription to Beat His Own  Railway at Law.  There is no more unique figure in  Great Britain to-day than Lord  Strathcona and Mount Royal, Lord  High Commissioner of ,Canada,  Knight of St. Michael and St.  George. He is tho largest land owner-in the world. He possesses millions of acres of land in the great  Northwest, land rich in minerals and  furs; ho has a vast estate in Scotland and ho owns tho controlling interest in the Canadian Pacific railroad.  And still Lord Strathcona, with  his vast wealth, is a plain, unassuming! rnaxs, and he speaks with pride of  his humble birth and his struggle  with poverty in his early days.  Like Carnegie and Sir Thomas  Lipton, ho talks lovingly of his poor  but honest parents, and he has never  forgotten tho friends of his boyhood  Wan   ETBATOC02U, G.C.M.G., lL.D.f*P.������.'  days. Neither has he forgotten his  relatives who have been less fortunate than he, but he-has assistcd^hem  to lucrative positions and thus helped them to hcljj themselves.    .:������������������-������������������  It was in Morayshire, Scotland, in  1821, that   Donald A. _Sjnith first.  saw the light oFdayT  His father was a poor farmer, and  it was with dMiculty that he made  a scanty living for his already large  family when Donald put,in his appearance. If is said that his mother  did not havo tho necessary clothes  for tho bairn, but being a God-fearing woman she said:  "Tho Lord never sends a mouth to  feed unless he sends something to put  into it."  "So sho took tho best of caro of  tho newcomer, and as ho grew older  sho instilled into him tho principles  which ho says were the foundation  of, his success through life���������honesty,  frugality and perseverance,  "A mother's early training has  everything to do with a man's career," he said. "I know mine had  with me,'' She taught mo to work  when 1 was very young, and to save  motfoy���������two very important things in  a man's lifo."  Roared in tho Frcshytorlan faith,  ho has been deeply religions throughout his lifo,  Ho" is strictly temperate, too,  which in this period of fast living is  somothing unusual. His glass is always filled at a banquet, but it is  novor emptied.  Through tho influences of friends he  was sont to Labrador in tho interest  of tho Hudson Bay Company whoa  ho was a young lad of seventeen.  This was tho turning point in his  lifo.  His position was tho vory lowest,  and meant hard work, long hours  nnd very littlo pay. But this sturdy  Scotch hid begun at tho bottom of  tho ladder with tho determination"of  ' reaching tho top.  "I oppliod myrolf faithfully to my  work," ho snid, In talking about his,  beginning with tho Hudson Bay Company. ."Whatever I had to do I did  my best to do it well, I prepar-xl  myself for a higher position, which I  was In hopes of filling somo duy, If  ono docs his \vor������. well and Is faithful to his employers I do not think  thero Is any doubt that a man can  rise In llfo. I hud to work very  hard, of course, but ono cannot axn>  coed in llfo without working hard. I  was young and vory strong then and  could endure a great dual, I was  born, in tho north of Scotland, you  know, and tho cllmato is vory frigid  thoro, so I wns prepared for* tho ox-  trc>mo cold of tho Arctic regions."  It did not tako his superiors long  to una out thut thoro wus tno n_ut  kind vi Uuil in Urn iSiiuUh Jad ol  which to make a grout man.  Ho wna rapidly promotml from ono  position of trust to another until ho  bocamo a factor.  The ',',vt.,'���������''���������,'*'.*, cj*'d cf *^" \rrtlr* re.  gions and tho long winter nights had  a bad effect on his eyes and ho wai  threatened with color blindness.  /Tlicro was no woy of getting him  to London, for it Wfas October, and  tho great north country was Ico-  bound. Hia only hope lay in his  reaching Montreal.  This, too, meant great peril, p������������r-  hapa death, tor he had to travel five  hundred miles by dog train, ovor  vast fields of unbroken snow and  ice. The trading posts were few and  far between in those days.  But he determined to take his  chances, and he set out with three  Indian guides for Montreal. In  speaJdng of the trip he said: "lt  was the coldest, winter I ever experienced during the thirty years I  was stationed in Labrador., The  snow was unusually deep, which  mado it harder for the dogs to  travel."  The operation on his eyes proved  successful, but when the timo came  for him to return to the far north  country, with its everlasting snows,  *io he^Hntcd. for to tako th* trip at  that time ot the year would tie almost certain death, and his marvelous courage about forsook him.  "I was a factor in the Hudson  Bay Company at that timo," ha  said, "with a great responsibility  resting upon me. It. 'was imperative  that! I should return to the post as  soon as possible. The Indians waited to wait until the warm weather  began before we started, the snow  was so deep."  "And couldn't you?" I asked.  "No. I had my duty to perform,"  ho said, "Everything must give  placo tb. one's duty, you know. - The  Indians insisted that they never could  reach the post alive, the snow was  so deep. They were right, poor fellows���������two died from cold and hardships we were forced to endure before we had gone half-way; the other  succumbed when wc were over ono  hundred miles from the post."  "And you?" I asked.  "I went on. lt was the only tiling  I could do."  "Not olqne?"-  "Certainly. 1 had to; there was  no other way for me to do. I don't  liko to tali; of that time; it was too  terrible. However, my nse in tho  Hudson Bay Compa.iy was very  rapid after that. 1 am glad I took  the trip."  When the people of Montreal were  trying to get the council to donate  the grounds for the Royal Victoria  Hospital Lord Strathcona quietly  bought ten acres of choice city property and gayc it to tho board, with  an additional sum of a million dollars. The members of thc board were  unanimous for naming the hospital  after Lord Strathcona, but he would  not listen to it, and insisted it  should be called after Queen Victoria.  ��������� A common employe of the Canadian Pacific Railroad was killed and  his widow was left penniless with a  large family of children to support.  Tho widow sued thc. road for damages^ she^ won_tho_ suit., The road  "appealeH'Tff again^tlicn^oor-woiiTan*  won. Then the big corporation decided to carry {he suit up to the  highest courts in England. Tho  widow had no money to fight the  road any further. Her lawyer, however, wasn't to be beaten, and he  headed a subscription list, determined to soo justice dono tho poor woman. Liord Strathcona heard of tho  case, Ho asked tho lawyer, how much  it would tako to carry tho suit to  England.  ��������� "Twelve hundred dollars," was tho  reply. "Wc have fivo hundred of tho  amount already subscribed."  "Thon put mo down for tho bal-  anco," said Lord Strathcona. "That  woman should havo tho money; do  your best to get it for her,"  And ho gave tho money to beat  his own railroad.  When I asked him what ho attri-  days was books. * He was very fond  of studying scientific subjects, and  the money others would have spent,  on clothes he spent in buying boolyi.  I never met a man who possessed a  greater lund of knowledge than Mr.  Hill. He is a power in the financial  world to-day. I 6hould like to tell  every young man starting out in lifo  the necessity of preparing himself for  his work.  "Then he must be honest and save  his money. The great trouble with  the people to-day is they all want  to be rich without first having been  poor. I was very poor when I began  lifo as a boy, very poor."  I looked about tho magnificently  furnished room, and mechanically  asked: 'Isn't ono happier amid such  surroundings as yours?"  "No," he replied quickly. "Great  wealth cannot bring happiness. Real  happiness must como from a contented mind and hard work. Great  wealth is a burden, for ono has to  think very hard now to make tho  best use of his money. I would not  advise any man to strive after great  wealth. I would rather be a very  good man than a very rich man."���������  New, York Herald.  ACCESSORIES OF DRESS.

An old volume, the "Noble Iloke of  Cookry, ffor a Prynce Houssolde or eny  other Estately Houssolde," written  about the year 1407, contains many  rare and curious recipes in use in those  days not only for ordinary dishes, but  those to be eaten on fast and fish days.  It is curious in reading this cookery  book to find that there ar/s'tbe same  birds, beasts and fishes, the same  courses and sometimes the same names  to dishes as in a modern one, but, although the names nre often the same,  the ingredients and the preparation  are very different. For Instance, their  "blanche mange" was composed of  lamprey or other fish, and their custards contained fresh pork mluecd  small.  Here is one recipe from the book:  "To make mon amy take and boil cows'  cream and when it is boiled set it aside  aiid let it cool. Then take cow curds  and press out the whey; then bruise  them in a mortar and cast them in tho  pot to the cream and buil together.  Put thereto sugar, honey and may butter, color it up with saffron and in tho  ���������setting .down .put'in yolks of eggs well  beaten aiid do away the strain and let  the potage be standing; then arrange  it in dishes and plant therein flowers  of violets and serve it."  Some of the recipes in this quaint old  book were' intended specially for a  "lorde's" table. For instance, a pike  was to be Served whole to "a lorde,"  but cut in pieces for the "commonnlte."  Cabbages were to be thickened with  grated bread for ordinary people, but  served with yolks of eggs for a "lorde."  The dishes at this time used at table  "were'either gold or silver for great occasions and wooden trenchers and platters for ordinary use. It was not till  the time of Queen Elizabeth that  plates of metal and earthenware began  to be generally used instead of wood.  WILLS IN ENGLAND.

"Sir," replied Harry Blount, wlihthe  most imperturbable coolness, "it is sixpence a number, including postage " *  And thereupon Blount returned to his  tompanion, who appeared to approve  tompletely of his replies.  Ivan Ogareff, without frowning,  mounted his horse and, going, to the  oead of his escort, soon disappeared ia  a cloud of dust.  "Well, M. Jolivet, what do you think  of Colonel Ivan Ogareff, general in  thief'of'the Tartar troops?" asked  Blount.  "I think, my dear friend," replied  Alcide, smiling, "that the housch-begui  made a very graceful gesture when be  gave the order for our heads to.be cut  off."  Whatever was the motive which led  Ogareff to act thus in regard to the  two correspondents, they were free and  could rove at their pleasure over the  scene of war. Their intention was not  to leave it. The sort of antipathy  which formerly they had entertained  tor each other had given place to a sincere friendship. Circumstances having  brought them together, they no longer  thought of separating. The petty questions of rivalry were forever extinguished. Harry Blount could never  forget what he owed his companion,  who, on the .other hand, never tried to  remind him of it. This friendship, too,  assisted the reporting operations and  was thus to the advantage of their  readers.  "And now," asked Blount, "what  shall we do with our liberty'("  "Take advantage of it, of course;"  replied"Alcide,"and go quietly to Tomsk  ������������������to-seo-wha-t-is.gQiiig-oiu1Jiere.LL^_ ___  "Until the time���������very near, I hope���������  when we may rejoin some Russian regiment."  "As you say, ray dear Blount, it won't  do to Tartarize ourselves too much.'  The best side is that of the most civilized army, and it is evident that the  people of central Asia will have everything to lose and absolutely nothing to  gain from this .Invasion," while the Russians will soon repulse them. It Is  only a matter of time."  Tho"arrival of Ivan Ogareff, which  bad given Jolivet and Blount their liberty, was to Michael Strogoff, on tho  contrary, a serious danger. Should  chanco bring the czar's courier into  Ogaroff's presence tho latter could not  fall to recognize In him the traveler  whom ho had so brutally treated at the  Ichim posthouse,' and, although Michael had not replied to the Insult ns  he would havo done under any other  circumstances, attention would be  drawn to him, and at onco the accomplishment of his plans would be rendered more diflicult.  This was tho unpleasant side of tbo  business. A favorable result of his  arrival, however, was tho ordor which  was given to ralso tho camp that very  day and remove tho headquarters to  Tomsk.  This was tho accomplishment of Michael's most fervent desire. Ills Intention, as has been said, was to reach  Tomsk concealed among the othor prisoners���������that Is to sny, without nny risk  of falling Into tho hands of tho scouts  vVio swarmed about the approaches to  this Important town. However, In consequence of tho arrival of Ivan Ogareff  and In tho fear of bolng recognized liy  him, he questioned whether It would  not ho bottor to glvo up Ills flrst plan  and attempt to oscapo during tho journey,  Michael would no doubt hnvo kept to  tho latter plan had ho not learned that  Foofar-KImn nnd Ivan Ognrcff had already set out for tho town nt tho head  of somo thousands of horsemen.  "I will wait, then," aald lio to himself; "at least unless somo exceptional  opportunity for oscapo occurs.

I Twas 2 o'clock In thon ft-  oruooa on the 12th of  August, under a hot sun  and cloudless sky, that  tho toptschl-baacbl gave  tbo order to start  Alcldo and Blount, having bought horses, haa already taken  lhe road to Tomsk.  Among tbe prisoners brought by Ivan  Ogareff to the Tartar camp was uu old  woman, whose taciturnity teemed to  keep her apart from all those wbo shared her fate. Not a murmur Issued from  ber lips. She was like a statue of criif.  This woman was more strictly guarded  than any one else and, without her appearing to notice or even to suspect,  was constantly watched by the gypsy  Sangarre. Notwithstanding ber age.  she was compelled to follow tbe convoy of prisoners on foot, without any  alleviation of her suffering.  However, a kind Providence bad placed near her a courageous, kind hearted  being to comfort and assist her. Among  her companions in misfortune a young  'girl,.remarkable for her beauty and a  taciturnity equal to that of the Siberian, seemed to have given herself the  task of watching over ber. No words  had been exchanged between the,two  captives, but the girl was always found  at the old woman's side just when'her  help was useful A* first the mute as-  sista^ci of the stranger was not accepted without some mistrust. Gradually, however, the young girl's clear  glance, her reserve and the mysterious  sympathy which draws together those  who are in misfortune thawed Maria's  coldness.  Nadia���������for.lt was she���������was thus able  without knowing it to reuder to the  mother those attentions which she had  herself received from tbe son. Her instinctive kindness had doubly inspired  her. In devoting herself to her service  .ttadin secured to her youth and beam.*  tho protection afforded by the age of  the old prisoner.  On the crowd-of unhappy people, Im-  bittered by sufferings, this silent pair-  one .seeming to be the grandmother, the  other the granddaughter���������imposed a  sort of respect. .'"'.��������� y  After being carried noff by the Tartar  scouts on the Irtish Nadia, had been  taken to Omsk. Kept a prisoner in the  town, she shared the fate of all those  captured by Ivan Ogareff and conse  quently That ofMaria Strogoff"     ������������������  Thanks to her .'young companion,  ���������Marfa Strogoff was ablo to'follow the  soldiers who guarded the, prisoners  without being fastened to a saddle-  bov.vas were many other unfortunate  wretches, and thus dragged along this  road, of sorrow.  "May God reward you, my daughter,  for what-you have done for n,iy old  age]" said Marfa Strogoff once, and for  some time these were the only words,,  exchanged between the two unfortunate beings.  Nadia also, if not completely silent,  spoke little.  However, one day bor heart overflowed, and she told, without concealing anything, all the events whicli had  occurred from her departure from  Wlndimlr to the death of Nicholas Korpanoff. All that ber young companion  told Intensely Interested the old Siberian.  "Nicholas Korpanoff?" said she. "Tel!  mo again about Nicholas. I know only  one man, ono alone, among all the youth  of the time in whom such conduct,  would not have astonished me. Nicholas Korpanoff 1 Was that really his  name? Aro you Buro of lt, my daugb-  tor."  "Why should he have deceived mo ln  this," replied Nadia, "when he deceived  mo In no other way?"  Moved, however, by a kind of pre-  sentiment, Marfa Strogoff put questions  upon questions to Nadin.  "You told mo ho wns fearless, my  daughter. You hnvo proved that ho  lins been so," said sho.  "Yes, fearless indeed," replied Nadia.  "It was Just whnt my son would  have done," said Maria to herself,  Then sho resumed:  "Did you not sny that nothing stopped liltn, nothing astonished him, that  bo was so gentlo In his strength that  you had a sister as woll ns a brothor In  him and that ho watched ovor you llko  a mot her ?"  "Yes, yen," snid Nndla; "brother, sister, mother-he hns been nil to me.''  "And defended you llko a Hon V  "A lion Indeed," replied Nadin. "Yos,  a Hon, a hero."  "My son, my son!" thought the old  Slborlan. "But do you sny that ho has  submitted to a terrible affrout In tbe  poitbouse of Ichim'/"  "Ho has borne with it," answered Nadia, lowering her liesiU.  "Has he submitted to it?" murmured  Marfa Strogoff, trembling with fear,  "Mother, mother," crlod Nadia, "do  not condemn him. There 1b a secret  tbere ot wbich Uod alono ls tbo judge  at tbo present time!"  "And," said Marfa, raising her head  and looking at Nadin ns though she desired to read tbe depth-of ber soul In  this hour of, humiliation, "bave you despised this Nicholas Korpanoff?"  "I bave admired bim without under-  ���������lauding him," answered the youug  girl. "I bave never felt bim to be more  worthy ot respect than ba Is at tbe  present moment,"  Tbe old woman wai illeot for a mo  ment*. ���������     .-,,.  ''Was he taU?" she asked.  "Very tall."  "And very handsome���������is it not so:  Come, tell me, my, girl."  "He was very handsome," answered  Nadia, blushing deeply.  "It was my son! I tell you it was my  son}" exclaimed tbe old woman, embracing Nadia.  "Your son!" said Nadia, amazed.  "Your son!"  "Come." said Marfa, "let us get to  the bottom of this, my child. Your  companion, your friend, your protect or.  had n mother., Did,he never speak to  you of bis mother?"  "Of his mother?" said Nadia. "He  spoke to me of his mother���������ns I spoUe  to him of my father���������often, always.  He adored ber."  "Nadia, Nadia, you have just told me  about my son," said the old woman.  And she added Impetuously:  "Was he not going to see his mother,  whom you say he loved, on his way  through Omsk?"  "No," answered Nadia; "no, be was  net.". ;���������  "Not!", cried Marfa. "You dare to  tell me not':"  "I have said it, but "it remains for mc  to inform you that from motives unknown to me and which had to guide  him.'before every other consideration I  was given to understand that Nicholas  Korpanoff had to traverse the country  in the most absolute secrecy. It wus  for him a question of life and of death  and. more sacred' still, a question of  duty and honor."  "Of duty In reality, of Imperious  duty," said the old Siberian, "of that  kind for whicli a person sacrifices everything, for the accomplishment of  'whic-li he would deny himsei-. everything, even the joy of coming to. give  a kiss, the last perhaps, to his old mother. All that you do net know. Nadia.  all that-1 did not know myself at this  moment I know. You have made me  understand all.

The good deed yotr  bave iloneome I cannot return to you." *  "Mother, I ask nothing from you,"  Miswered-Nadia.';  All was thus explained to the old Siberian, all, even the inexplicable con-  .[tud^f^aiiJso^  'In the Inn at Omsk in presence of.tne  wUoosses of their'meeting There ������';is  oo aoutic" r,������9T The,'young'girl's companion wtia Sticrtaev Strogoff and that a  secret nv-Kin, "'soriie, important dispatch to r,a .-Acn'od across the invaded  c-.onntry, .orj.'"goiV him to conceal his  -juaifty of rb<$ c7.l',v'b courier.

Marfa com-fl with a word have paid  Nadia for *M bor devotion to her. She.  could ham iola hor that her companion, NicLoi'is* Korpanoff, or, rather, Michael St'OWif, had not perished lu the  waters or Tne Irtish, since It wns some  flays alUr teat incident that sho had  met him.

The  mourning which I wear ls not yot for  my son.'- .       . .        ,  Such was now the situation of Marfa  Strogoff and Nndla toward each other.  Tho old Siberian bad understood all,  and If vM young girl wns Ignorant  of tho tact that her companion so  much regretted still lived sho know at  least'th* relationship which ho hold  toward Her whom she had mado her  mother, and sbo thanked God for having given her that Joy and pleasure  thus to be nblo to replace at tho side  of tho prisoner that sou whom sho had  lost.  But that which neither tho ono nor  tho other could know was thot Michael  Strogoff, taken at Kalyvan, was ono of  tho sumo convoy und was bound llko  themselves for Tomsk',  At length, on the JfJlh of August, toward ovonlug, tho convoy reached the  little town of Zabodolro, somo thirty  versts from Tomsk. At this plnco tho  routo agalu lay along tho courso of tho  Tom.  All this night tho prisoners woro to  camp on tho banks'of tho Tom. Tho  emir, la fact, had deferred until the  next day the entry of bis troops into  Tomsk. It had been decided that a  military display should mark tbo inauguration of tbo iuittir headquarters  (n this important city. Feofor-Kban  already occupied its fortress, but the  body of bis army bivouacked under the  walls, waiting for tho moment to mako  ��������� solomn entry.  Ivan Ogareff had left tbe emir at  Tomsk, whoro they had both arrlvod  tbo evening before, and ho roturned to  tho encampment at Zahodelro. Nost  day bo bad to start from tbli place  wltb tbe rear guard of tbe Tartar army.  A houso bod been* placed at bit disposal where be could stay tlie uigbt. At  sunrise, under bit command, horse and  foot set ont for Tomsk, where tbe emir  wished to receive them wltb al! tht  pomp tad display of aa Asiatic sover  eign.  When the orders for a halt had been  given, the prisoners, worn out wltb a  three days* journey, a prey to the most  burning thirst, could at length quench  their thirst and take some repose.  The sun had already set, but the bori-  aoa was still lighted up by the twilight,  when Nadia, supporting Marfa Strogoff, reached tbe banks of the Tom.  Tbe two had not been able so far to  penetrate the ranks of those wbo  thronged the high bank, and they came  to drink in their turn.  Tbe old Siberian bent over tbe fresh  stream, and Nadia, having plunged her  bands into it, carried It to the lips of  Marfa. Then she refreshed herself in  her turn. The cold water of the pure  stream seemed to give back life to the  old woman and the young girl. Suddenly Nadin, as she left tho banks,  straightened herself. Aa Involuntary  cry escaped her lips.  Michael Strogoff was there and only  some paces from her!  It was he!  At the cry of Nadia Michael Strogoff  bad started, but he bad sufficient command of himself not to utter a word  which could compromise him.  And yet at the very moment that Nadia had recognized him he had recognized bis mother. Michael Strogoff at  this unexpected meeting, not feeling  himself to b������ any longer master of himself, ralsfld bla hand to hU eyes and Immediately l������ft tbo spot Nadia was instinctive!? hastening forward to rejoin  him whea the old Siberian whispered  these wards in her ear:  "Stay, my daughter!"  "It is he!" answered Nadia ln a voice  trembling with emotion. "He lives,  mother!   It is he!"  "It is my son," answered Marfa Strogoff; "it is Michael Strogoff, and you  see that I. do not take one step toward  him-   Follow my example."  Michael Strogoff had just experienced,  one of the most violent emotions which  it is ever given to man to feel. His  mother and Nadia were there. Those  two prisoners, each of whom seemed T  b-jld the first place In his heart, wero  thero joined with him in one common  misfortune. Did Nadia know who he  was? No, for he had seen the gesture  it Marfa Strogoff holding ber back at  the moment she was about to "rush upon  him. Marfa Strogoff had .understood  all and kept her secret. *; ������'  Michael Strogoff could then hope that  this fresh and unexpected meeting at  .the_cam,p���������of_ZabadeUo*m  injurious consequences neither for his.  mother nor for'_ himself, but be did  not "know that certain particulars of  that scene, rapidly as it had passed,  had been gained by Sangarre, the spy  of Ivan Ogareff, -.  The gypsy was there, a few paces  from the bunk, watching as ever the  old Siberian, without her uuspecting it.  She had not been able to perceive Michael Strogoff, who had' already disappeared when she tinned f'fouud, but  lhe gesture ot the mothori withholding .Nadia, had not.escapel,her, and a  llgtjt. i'rom Maria's eyes to<1 her everything. :"-.:   *  There was nn longer any doubt .that  tin* son of Marin Strogoff, -the courier  of tho czar, was now nt Zabodolro  among tho prisoners of Ivan Ogareff.  ���������   Sangarre did not know him, but sbo  knew ho was there.   She did hot then  ; attempt to discover him, a thing which  would  have, beon Imposslblo  in tho  ���������midst of this numerous crowd.  ;   As.for again spying after Nndla nnd  Marfa Strogoff, this was equally useless.  It was evident that these two women would bo on their guard, and lt  would be Impossible to seize by sur-  prlso anything of a naturo to compromise tbo courier of the czar.  Tho gypsy bad then only ono thought  ���������to warn Ivan Ogareff. Wherefore *������i  Immediately left tho camp. *>  A quarter of an hour afterward/lflfc  arrived at Zabodolro and was Blibwn  into tho houso occupied by tho lieutenant of tho emir.  Ivan Ogareff immediately received tbo  gypsy.  "What do you wish, Sangarre?" bo  asked.  "Tho son of Marfa Strogoff la at tbo  camp," answorod Saugarro.  "A prisoner?"  "A prisoner."  "Ah," cried Ivan Ognroff, "I knew"-  "You know nothing, Ivan," said tbe  gypsy, "for you do uot even know  him."  "But do you know him? You have  soon him, SangaiTo?"  "I hnvo not seen bim, but X saw bis  mother betray herself by a movement  which has told mo everything."  "Do you not docolvo yourself?"  "I <fc> not."  "You know tbe Importance I attach  to tbe arret of thit eiMirinr," pnld Yvnn  Ognreff. "If the letter which whs sent  to him from Moscow roaches Irkutsk,  and It Bhould bo handed to tbe grand  duke, tbe grand duko would bo on bit  guard, and I should not bo ablo to  catcb b!m. I mn������t hnvo tWn letter nt  any price. Now, you have just told me  tbat tbe bearer of this lotter li In my  power. I repeat It, Sangarre, do yon  not deceive yourself?"  Ivan Ogareff bad spoken wltb great  animation. His emotion bore testimony  to tba extreme Importance bo attached  to the possession of this letter. Sangarre wai not at all troubled wltb tbe  persistency of tbe fresh Inquiry.  "I am not deceived, Ivan," she answered, ...  ...  "But, Sangarre, there are at the camp  several thousand prisoners, and you  say you do not know Michael Strogoff?"  "No," answered the gypsy, whose  face lighted up with a savage joy. "I  indeed do not know bim, but his mother does. Ivan, we must force tbe mother to speak."  h\. "Tomorrow sbe shall speak!" said  Ogareff. ��������� ,4 .  Then he held ont bis hand to the gypsy, and she kissed lt, without there be-*  ing in this act of respect habitual to the  people of tbe north anything degrading  or servile.  Sangarre returned to the camp. She  found the place occupied by Nadia and  Marfa Strogoff and passed the night In  watching them both, with her ears  open for any information. She could  bear nothing. By an Instinctive feeling of prudence not a word was exchanged between Nadia and Marfa  Strogoff.  CHAPTER XII.  HE next day, the lGth of  -   u August, the loud tongued  I trumpets sounded through  the camp. Tho Tartar soldiers sprang at once ito,  arms.  Ivan Ogareff, after having quitted Zabedeiro, arrived, accompanied by a numerous staff of Tartar  officers.,,, His face was more serious  than usual, and his contracted outlines  indicated a great anger, which was only  waiting for some object on which to  hurl Itself.  Michael Strogoff, lost In a group of  prisoners, saw this man pass by. Ho  had a presentiment that a great calamity waa about to happen, for Ivan Ogareff now knew that Marfa Strogoff was  the mother of Michael Strogoff, captain  ln the corps of the couriers of the czar.  Ivan Ogareff arrived at the center of  the camp, dismounted from his horse,  and the horsemen of his escort formed  a large circle around him.  At that moment Sangarre approached and said:  "I have nothing new of which to Inform you, Ivan."  Ivan Ogareff answered only in giving  a short command to one of his otlicers.  Immediately the ranks of the prisoners  were traversed in a brutal manner by  the; soldiers. These unfortunate ones,  urged on with blows and pushed with  the wood of the lances, quickly arrang-  *S,  ,>  ed themselves ..along the outeFeSg������ of"  the camp... Four lines of infantry and  cavalry .drawn up at the back rendered  all escap'e impossible.  'Order for silence wns at once given,  and at a sign from Ivan Ogareff Sangarre,, directed her steps toward the  group in tlie middle of which was Marfa Strogoff.  The old Siberian saw her coming.  She understood what was about to happen, A disdainful smile played on her  lips. Then, turning to Nadia, sbo said  to her in a low ypice:  "Yo'u do not know mo nny longer, my  daughter. Whatever happens nnd however trying may be this examination,  not.,a .word, uot a gesture. It Is'for  bim, not for mo, they senrch."  At-.this moment Sangarre, after having looked around i'or an Instant, placed  her 'band upon the shoulder of the old.  Slborlan.  "What do you wish from mo?" said  Marfa Strogoff.  '    ''  "Come," answered Sangarre.  And, pushing bor with her hand, she  led ber Into the middle of the reserved  space before'I van Ogareff.  Michael Strogoff kept his eyelashes  half closed In order that the brlghtnesi  of his oyes should not betray,lilm.,;  Marfa Strogoff, having come, In frwM  of Ivan Ogareff, straightened her person, crossed her arms and waited.  "Aro you indood Marfa Strogoff ?" demanded Ivnn Ognreff.       ''������������������'  "Y'es," answered the old Siberian,  with calmness.  , "Havo you chnnged your mind as regards tho statement you made to me  when, three days ago, I lutcrrogatea  you at Omsk?" ,   '  "No."' '. (>-  ';*  "So you nro Ignornnt of tho fact that  your son, MJ.ohnol' Strogoff, courier of  tho czar, has passed through'Orosfc?" "  "I am Ignorant of It."  "And that tho mnn that you believed  to havo recognized ns your son at tha  posthouso was not ho���������wus not your  son?"  "Ho was not my son."  "And havo you not seon hlra since  among tho prisoners?"  "No."  "And If ho wero shown to you woula  you recognize him?"  "No."  At this answer, which showed an !���������������  floslblo determination to avow nothing,  a murmur of approbation arose from  the crowd.  Ivan Ogareff could not restrain ���������  menacing gesture.  "LlBten," said be to Marfa Strogoff,  "Your son Is hero, and you go at one*  to point bim out"  "No,"  *  (To be continued,)    "  Japh&ciio Names,  Tbe Japanese name for a torpedo If  lulrul,' literally "wul.r lightning," A  torpedo boat tbey call lulraltel, or  "water lightning iblp."
