Mr Win. Hicks who has  favored up with <?orae of his delightful songs on . two occasions last  week, displayed his rare talent in  "The sound hi the drum," and  "Neath the rolling tide." , Mr  Hicks' voice never seems to lose its  fine timbre, even -in the fortissimo  passages. The severe cold from'  which this gentleman was suffering  prevented him rendering other selections which would have given his  magnificent voice more scope and  range. ^Mr Napier.confirmed the  highest expectations which had  been held, iii the singing of one qf  - Lord Bomr-r.-ot's pathetic and beautiful songs, "Echo," his singing  being . both powerful and sweet.  Mrs Moore sang "Alice, where art  thou?" but wii3, prevented by a  severe cold 'from - singing in her  usual'easy manner.

H. LOVETT CAMERON,  $ Author of ������������������ Worth Winning," Etc  "They are ditTorcnt."  *'And \y,hich am I. pray?"  ���������"Upon ray word, I don't know!"  he answered, earnestly, looking up at  roe intently, as if ho were really  puzzled by me.  I laughed.  "One judges women by a higher  standard than one does girls, you  know," he said, by way of explanation.  "Is marriage, then, tho portal to  thoss higher realms of bliss from  which the spinsters are excluded?"  "Generally, not always though.  Bella is a girl in every sense of tho  word; but I am not sure about  you."  "Weil, I shall very soon be    married, you know," I answered, airily;'  "'and that,   perhaps,   will determine  ij tny status." ;  , "Yes; you needn't remind    me    of  that so very often," he said, testily.  I was rather surprised by the  ���������audden change in his manner,, and  was silent.  Captain Thistleby had settled him-  boU down to his work and was pulling well.  I don't know that a woll-madc man  ever looks to better advantage than  when he is rowing.  As I looked   at   my   companion's  tjroad chest, and at the steady, easy  motion of his muscular arms, at his  "well-shaped    head,    from    which    he  had removed his hat, thickly clustered over by crisp, short curls, and set  oa to his shoulders   with    the grace  ���������and strength of an   Apollo, I began  to,think that Captain Thistleby was  ���������a very type of all that was perfect  -kt. "manly beauty.    I    stole', furtive  'glances at his face from    under the  shade of my.hat.    I had not noticed  tmtil now what glorious eyes he had  ���������^eyes that, at times, drooped    lan-  ���������guid and sleepy boneatli long veiling  J[ashes.; and at times flashed but sud  denly in gleams of fire and energy.  5n the straight-cut nose and square  ���������chin were a subtle blending" of  strength and refinement; and;though  Win mouth was nil but. concealed bv  ��������� .f-t-heJoTsg tawny moustache, I could  guess from what I saw that its lines'  ������teabted '"firmness and character.

A golden    light  ripples all over the waves,-the boat  cleaves her way through thejni-   with  oi fresh,    sounding   swish,, at    every  istroko   of the   oar,   followed by* a  mellow gurgling after   every onward  tiound   she gives.    Big white   sails,  ���������some near, some far off, pass and repass in a solemn,   silent procession  between us and the bluo lino   of   tho  borizon; and now and thon a trail of  smoke in the distance tolls    us    of  ������������������soqus   outward-bound   steamer drop-  . -ping "down Channol."  I lean back In'tho stem of tho little boat, fooling at peace with my������  mlt and tho wholo world, and I won-  ttec vaguely what it is that makes  ���������one so supremely happy to-day. Tho  ���������bc-ocsw rulTIi-js my Imlr and flushes my  '���������chocks. I-hang one hand ovor tho  wide and let tho wator trickle Idly  through my fingers. Ah! delicious  day, why did it notilast for ever?  .  At length   we reached    tho    little  b*y to which wo wore bound, I had  ���������not Ucllod its beauty. It was hollo.w-  ."wi deeply, out of* the stoop clIfTs that  ������nclosod It perpendicularly on   throe  uidcs.    Thoir   weather-boaton    faces  wore frowning and dark,    and   con-  truJiU'd    charmingly   at  low    wator  "with   the yellow   smuts nnd    brown  roc|<������, and tho llttlo bluo   pools   ol  ���������water nt  their, foot.

"What a place for a picnic, Miss  ClifTord! Why are you going tomorrow? We might have a charming timo here."  "Well, it would hardly do for a  wholi; day; the sen conies up to thft  cliffs nt, high tide."  "Keally? I wonder if the boat Is  safe?" lie looked burk somewhat  anxiously.    "The tide is coming in."  "Oh! we have lots of time. We  have still the cavern to see. Come!"  A low opening at the fool of the  cliffs was between us. Mark had to  stoop his tall hond considerably to  got into it; but after a few steps the  roof roso suddenly, and we stood iii'  a high vaulted chamber, lighted by  a fissiire in iho rock above. The red  sandstone was grrinod in regular  curves, like the roof of a cathedral,  and a carpel of whitest silversand  was .spread out under our feet.  And here���������oil! wonder of wonders  --were myriads of lovely twisted  shells, such as I never saw there before, strewn about all over the  (Joor, in countless numbers, of every  shade and hue, from palest rose to  deepest orange.  "How beautiful!" T exclaimed delightedly. "1 never found shells here  before. Where can they have come  from in such quantities? It must  have been yesterday's storm that  brought, them."  1 stooped down und eagerly began  gathering them up; J filled iny handkerchief and Captain Thistleby's,  and all our pockets.  "What on earth do you mean to  do wiih them?" he said, laughing,  but down on 1.is I;noes, too, picking  them \ip7~ '       :  "[ don't know in tlie very least, i  Haa 11 probably throw tljem 'away'before' we are home again;, but- .have  thorn 1 must!" ���������   "   '"    . ,,  "Lei us take shots with thejn.at  that clump of brown seaweed' up  tbere," said my companion.-  Happy thought, no sooner suggested than acted upon.

The worship of tbe sea appears to be  pretty general throughout Melanesia.  In some of the Fiji Islands, for example, the natives attempt to propitiate  the sea by building a small house In a  retired spot near It, in which they set  out a table with ready cooked yams  and painted cocoanuts. They then  drum with short bamboos morning and  evening for several successive weeks in  order to summon the luve-nl-wal, or  children of the waters, to the feast  thus provided.  They build a Jetty to facilitate the  ascent of tbe sea spirits from the water  to the house and plant flags at certain  points to prevent them from wandering  inland. Finally, the worshipers call  and whistle to the deities to encourage  them to enter, and, when they Imagine  this has been done, they eat tbe feast  themselves.  The Inhabitants of the Banks Islands  also pray to a being named Qat, who  either controls or represents the sea. as  he is invoked thus: "Smooth the sea  thnt I may go safely. Beat down the  crests of the tiderlp. Bent It down  level that I may come to a quiet landing placet"  Eccentric.  Giving evidence of character for a  man charged at North Loudon, a witness declared that he was eccentric.  Mr. Fordham���������Cun you give an in*  stance of his eccentricity?  The Witness��������� Well, yes. I can. During the fourteen years 1 bare known  bia> he bas never been a minute late in  getting to his work.  Mr. Fordham���������And you call that being eccentric?  The Witness���������Yes. certainly, for e  worktogman.���������London Times.  There arc three things to aim at in  public speaking : First, to get into  your subject; second, to get your subject into yourself; and lastly,' to get  your subject into your hearers-*  . An editor thus    distinguishes   be  tween different sorts of patriotism .-  Some esteem it sweot to die for one's  ,country; others regard it sweeter to  livo for one's country; but most of  our patriots hold it sweetest to live  upon one's country.  BRAIN CONTROLS  EVERY MUSCLE  Injury to  Brain or Nerves, Deficiency of Nerve Foroo Mean  Paralysis  and   Helplessness. .,  DR. CHASE'S NERVE FOOD.  HEP ONE ANOTHER  Every muscle of tho body controlled by the will is connected with the  brain, and every muscular action la  originated by nervous force, generated in the brain and transmitted  along the nerves to the muscles.  When the nerves are injured or diseased, when there is a deficiency in  the supply of nervous energy, paralysis, locomotor ataxia or some  form of helplessness results because  the brain no.longer lias control of  the muscles.  It may bo weak heart action, inability to digest food, failure of the  lungs to purify the blood or impaired action of any of the vital organs,  but the^cause of trouble is with the  nerves.  The restorative action of Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food is soon felt  throughout the entire system, because it restores the vigor and vitality of the nerves���������fills them with  new nerve force, the vital power .of  the body; weakness, nervousness, irritability, sleeplessness and low spirits disappear and new energy and  strength take their place.  Mrs. D. Ardies, Brandon, Kan.,  writes :���������"My son, aged fourteen, aaad  little girl of three years, were both  stricken with St. Vitus' Dance. The  doctor told us what tho ailment was,  but could not keep them from getting  worse and worse, so when I received  a book about Dr. Chase's Nerve Food  I decided to buy it. Tije boy had lost  eighteen pounds in two months, and  could scarcely take hold of anything.  The little girl lost the power of her  tongue, and could scarcely speak.  "1 now take pleasure in stating  that they are' both quite wdl, and  you would never know there had been  anything the matter.

He got up and closed the window.  Then he read the story again'. ���������  It brought great breaths, of fragrant  nir Into the stuffy room. He could see  the open meadows and woodlands; the  dashing, 'overflowing: brooks, where the  trout were rising; the throbbing new  life bursting out into the sunshine.  He felt.lt nil keenly, for he had spent  most of that happy boyhood of his up  among the hills of Connecticut. Yes,  the busiest editor in New York srj  there dreaming, while below in the  general office'.people with Important  business were being turned away by  the dozen. ' ������������������:'���������'  The story was signed simply M. B.  Turner, with an address somewhere  up'in Connecticut. "I never saw any  one catch the real spring feeling as  that man does," the editor said to himself. "He must be a good angler and  general sportsman."  Instead of sending the usual printed  slip accepting the article, he picked up  his pen and ���������wrote the following note:  Mr. M. B. Turner:    V  Dear Sir���������I have just read your���������manu-  script, "The Call of the Red Gods," and I  like it so much that I shall try to make  room for It in the May number, which is  already made up. I want to tell you personally how much I have enjoyed reading  It and how it took me back to my boyhood home. I, too, am an angler by  choice, though an editor, by. necessity. If  you have other stories I should be glad to  read them.  Very truly yours,        JOHN MONTEITH.  The editor of the Twentieth Century  was still young and genial, and his  outer shell had not yet hardened.  Then he went back to his w;ork and  forgot the "story. But sometimes in  the midst of the rush and confusion of  the great magazine office there came  a faint," sweet scent. of violets and  damp, spring earth, and the roar of  the city streets was confused with the  rush and roar.-of the brooks overflowing with the spring floods. I twas then  that the oStpry was uppermost Th iiis ���������  mind.  One or two other'manuscripts came  ��������� from the same writer, but none was  equal to the first.    '  "He ought to stick"to nature," mused  the editor one day iu a leisure moment. "I wish I could see him and  have a talk on the subject."  He wrote a little note.to air. M. B.  Turner and told hliti that When he was  in town he sbould.be^gladto have h-ijn  call at the office of the Twentieth Century. ,.,,In reply.cainoa little typewritten note thanking him for the invitation, but as M. B. Turner was setting  out for a long summer trip through  Canada-ho could not be in New York  until the early'fall. It mado tho office  scorn very hot and stuffy���������tho thought  of that Canadian trip.  The last of August Montoith managed to got a two weeks' vacation,  When ho returned from the Maine  woods tho c-Ky looked dirtier und moro  dingy than over. It was refreshing'to  find a noto from Mr. Tumor stilting  that ho would, call at the office on  Wednesday morning at half past 10 If  that would be convenient to the editor.  That wns Monfclth's busiest day, but  without hesitation lio' soii't a cordial  Invitation to the young author to como  nt the specified time.  When ho went to the office on  ���������Wednesday ho hint a strange feeling  of expectation which ho could uo<:. explain until he remembered thut thin  was Ihe day that the disciple of Isiink  Walton was to call. Even whllo dictating letters to his typewriter his  mind was wandering off to tlio woods  nnd fields ho loved so well, His  thoughts were ciill'ed back by Miss  Jones and iho cessation of the click of  tho typewriter, "I did no,t catch (hut  last sont-t'tH'O, Mr. Montoith," slio said,  looking up; "something nbout pines  inul a brook."

Gentle had arrived in  Jericho acd.gjad,that he^had brought  lottery tickets alpng with him.  The third victim was Deacon Spoon  er. He had read of the Patagonians iu  'history, and' he did not believe that  money got through a lottery scheme  would elevate their moral standard.  That same money, however, if judiciously expended in buying wooden  legs and killing off potato bugs would  bring blessings to mankind. The*'deacon grew enthusiastic as he talked, and  he decided to take two tickets.  '  Then Good Fellow Davis, Trueman  Clapham and Moses Taylor were struggled with and became..the possessors  of a" ticket apiece, and at the end of a  fortnight the twenty tickets had been  sold and G. Gentle had taken his dyspepsia to some other locality/  Then ensued a period of awful suspense in Jericho. The drawing was to  lake place on the 1st of the month, ten  days after G. Gentle, bad folded his  tent. Each one who had purchased a  ticket was supposed1 to be the only One,  although every man doubted his neighbor and felt rancorous toward him.  The post office seances were almost  broken up by the bitter'spirit that prevailed, and1 there'was less trading'of  horses and borrowing and lending than  ever known before.  The night when the lists arrived in  Jericho will long be remembered by  every citi::on of the town. Not a. ticket  holder had drawn a prizetor come within a' mile qf' it. ��������� There was no G. jGehtle  to lay hands on, but there were others  who needed walking, on; and they were  slammed and banged and left where  they fell. The constable could do nothing except to wait until the last man  had tired ;himself out and gone home,  and then" he left the wounded in the  fence corners* and sought his own bed.  t-^- G.~ Gentle-had-come-and_pocketed,  $200 in cash, and G. Gentle had* vanished and left twenty eminent citizens  to kick sliins, pull hair and black one  another's eyes.  On the next Sunday the heathen contribution in the two churches fell to 2  cents and a button,-and to. this dayr the  .ministers are not sure what caused the  sudden and awful scaling down.  M.

Mrs. Thomas Adams / ls this lady's  name, and she has now been, a* resident  of C'olling-vood for a year and a halt.  before .that she lived in Burk's Falls,  whero she is widely known and highly  respected. Mrs. Adams feels it her duty  to spread the good, news ail over Canada, all over the world, that she has  found a ture for Bright's liisease, and  that that cure is Dodd's Kidnoy Pills.  '"Yes," she said, when interviewed regarding her case, "my friends can tell  you how. terribly ill 1 was., My doctor  pronounced it Bright's Disease und Sciatica, but 1 got no relief from anything  he gave e. It was Dodd's Kidney Pills  that drove away the terrible disease,  raised me from my bed of suffering, and  made me a well and happy woman.  "1 was for" years, troubled with a pain  in my back, at times I would have to  keep my bed. in March, 1900, I got so  bad with pains in my back and hip ihat  1 was*;inore helpless than'an infant; and  at times gave up all hope of getting  well. I had no power of my back or  limbs.  "I   was  for  eight months  ab   invalid,  "I was for eight ' months an invalid,  something too terrible for words to describe.

Tboy At. Dying Ofl; Measles mad Whiskey  m.lmg T������������ Much for Tksm-Ths  Vishsrics ot V������lu������.  "The liquor obtained by the Esquimaux was the cause of many murders  among them,- not a season passing  without two or three , during their  drunken bouts. The numbers ot tht  Esquimaux are decreasing very fast.  Last spring at McPherson out of a  band of eighty whose settlement was  at Herschel Island, some seventy died  from measles, thus practically clearing out the entire band. At Richard's  Island thero wero about three hundred, but many also died there."  So writes Superintendent Constantino of tho Edmonton Mounted Police  district in his report of the conditions which he found to exist at the  mouth of the Mackenzie" River, where  he'went, last summer and established  a police post. Accompanied by Sergeant Fitzgerald and four constables  the superintendent left Athabaska  Landing, on J une 1st, and arrived at  Fort McPhcrson on July 14th. The  journey of 1,854: miles was accomplished partly by canoe and partly by,  steamer. Fort M'cPhorson is on the  right bank of the Peel River, thirty  miles from its junction with the Mackenzie and seventy miles from the  Arctic Ocean. The general character  of the country from Athabaska Landing to McPherson is swampy, with  alternate rocky ridges with muskegs  between. The timber is spruce, poplar, black and white birch, willow  and alder. Tho country is full,, of  small lakes, and in a few places there  is arable land, North of the Athabaska River there is no agricultural  land.  The fisheries in Great" Slave Lake  are valuable, the most abundant being whitefish, lake trout and pike.  The trout grow to a large size and  often reach a weight of fifty pounds.  At Vermillion, on the Peace - River,  the Hudson's Bay Company have ��������� a  flour and saw mill. Superintendent  Constantino was informed that about  10,000 bushels of wheat would be  raise* along the Peace River that  season, ,and the company hoped to be  able to supply the northern posts  with flour ground from wheat raised  in that district. He thinks that if  the present -condit'ions continue the  post at;Fort McPherson could be  withdrawn at the end of another,  year, and two' other; posts established at Fort Simpson arid Fort Resolution respectively, farther up the  Mackenzie.  "It was then a friend of my husband  induced me to try Dodd's Kidney Pills.  1 had no faith in them, for 1 >,ever expected to get better. But I tried them,  and I thank Cod that 1 did. TK6y  brought mo relief almost from the flrst,  and ajter taking three boxes I. was ablo  to do my own work and look' after my  children.  "It is three years since I started us*  Ing Dodd's Kidney Pills, and I have not  fha<l a return of my trouble since. When  I feel a little out of sorts I just get a  'jox of Dodd's Kidney Pills, and they  Irlve all the pains away."  It is needless to Bay that Mrs. Adams'  friends all use Dodd's Kidney Pills.

AN OPEN LETTER TO MOTHERS.  "I.cannot praise Baby's Own Tab-  lots loo highly," writes Mrs. James  8, Bench, Campbell's Bay, Quebec.  "From tho time my baby was hovn  ho was troubled1 with pains in the  stomach und bowels and a rush on  his skin which mado him restless day  and night, I got nothing to hol|t  him until J. gavo him Jhiby's Own  Tublots, and iinder thoir use tha  trouble soon disappeared, and all my  frio-'rd*- aro now praising my baby,  ho looks so healthy and woll.

S*ome of the  ores are unlike any that, have hitherto been found* in quantity.in this  Province. For instance, the' mineral  niccolite, otherwise known as kupfer-  nickel, which contains about 44 por  cent, of nickel, and which up to the  present has furnished cabinet specimens only, has been discovered in  what, judging from surface indications, seems to be commercial quantities. A cobalt-nickel arcnldo has  also been found resembling sraaltite  and carrying, according to one assay 6 per cent, of nickel and 18 per  cent of cobalt. Both the niccolite and  smaltito aro rich in arsenic, tho former carrying 5b per cent., and the  latter up to 72 per cent.      ,  In addlt.ioa to these, native silver  occurs, some* exceedingly handsome  specimens of which havo been found.  \Tho valuo of these, discoveries, if  they turn out to bo extensive, can be  realized by a comparison with the  famous Sudbury deposits. In Sudbury 8 per cont. of nickel In the ore  Is the avorage, and 6 per cent. Is exceedingly rich, In tho new discoveries the ore carries 44 per cent, of  .nickel.

Spring has-co-.no! What a beautiful sentence, After a long, dreary  winter of waiting, it announces the  arrival of a new life, a renewal of  hope, an end-of ..various suffering,  conflict, discouragement. Spring  means so much in these latitudes to  ' the farmer, the poet, the" young  maiden, and the boy. It is then  that the poet begins to.sing like the  early birds who are stimulated by  tbe tint of green and flush of blossoms to thoughts of domestic life.  There is no sqund dearer or sweeter  to country ears than the cackle of  the spring hen some morning when  the south wind blows, ai,d the  snow banks are shrinking *away;  when the barn door is open, and  the eaves are dripping, and thr  fl ecy clouds promise both,shower.-  and fine weather. The hen is not  making, music; but she announces  that she has begun; the;'production.'  of a .somewhat indefinite. s-erits of  new lives. To us who know lift  there is a note of sadness in the  cackle, for it is probable that the  maternal instinct of the, ben is to be  disappointed by the nest-hum ing  boy and the greed of the family.  ��������� and all h?r exuberant joy of life   turned'into-a-oommer-cial-ope.nation_  She is just solicitous for the prosperity of her race. But thi-* line  * of remark belittles the glorious  conception.of ihe resurrection time  of rthe year. It is a sort of Miriam  song of triumph that the Red Sea  is passed,' and that the horrid forces  of the enemy are drowned in the  spring freshet. There is also in it  feeling of security'and confidence  that whatever Fiost and Thaw may  do hereafter, things are going in  the right direction, and the. sun is  every morning rising further north.  In such an excellent spirit it is  easy to forgive enemies and.credi-  tors. There are so many signs of  coming abundance. Spring has  come! While this song of the Vernal Equinox is being penned, thc  ground is almost covored with  snow, the branches of the trees aro  bare, except for a few "piis-ey cats"  here and there on the willows, and  a stray violei has dared to lift its  modest head above tho snow in  some unpretentious corner of the  garden. As for Uio rest, tho reader  can imagine it. Most of us livo hy  our imagination, without it wo  would perish.  semblers of us We often hear one  say���������**If it was not for,sQ-aijd sp'e  p.'sinou and salary, Miss or Mrs  Pedigree would not recognize-.him*  fur you kno^ his Er.glish is atrocious, and ho iit-tually e.ats with his  knife &c &c." Yet we pe mit society to guide and direct us in every  duty,-religious or otherwise. The  great trouble.is that only a few  persons in this world do any independent thinking, all of their ideas  being obtained from others. If we  really reflected upon \the various  concerns of life we should long ago  have instituted some radical reforms  which would have made'this world  a much more pleasant bpot than it  is. If you are a loaf of brown  bread, thank God, but do not pretend you are a frosted cake, or a  plum pudding, You will surely  disappoint souiebudy, and then,  conies the day of reckoning.

St Petersburg, 28th���������Iir-portant  news'*is driftingto theliussian capital by mail. Letter from Port  Dalny draws striking picture of its  defenceless condition when Japanese ships attacked Port Arthur.  The smallest Japanese force could  easily have captured the place and  destroyed enormous stores of coal,  half a million pounds, ai;d six Rus  sian-merchantmen lying in the  harbor. As the Japanese seemed  likely to do so the Russians at once  mined the approaches. The haste  with whicli the work was done was  the cause of the disaster to the  Yenise, many of the mines being  badly laid, one of which struck the  ���������cruiser Boyarin. during a fearful  storm. The Boyarin sank immediately.
