NAPIER & PARTRIDGE The Heiress of  Cameron Hall.  BY LAURA JEAN LIBBEY  Anchor of "Miss Middleton's Lore*/* "A ForfefaHen Han*-  age," ���������' Daisy Brooks," Etc, Etc  "I am going to somo other hotel,"  ���������he said. "Vou may bring your aunt,  to me there to-morrow, and I    may  consider your kind proposal."  Herbert Renwick was overjoyed.  He would make a confidante of his  aunt"; she would receive Helena with  open arms when he told her his  story, and with her wo-juan's wit she  might persuade her to give her heart  to him.  A quiet hotel was found where Helena chose to remain, and here Herbert lienwick left her, declaring that  on the following afternoon he should  call, bringing his aunt with him, for  the ostensible purpose of taking her  home with them.  He looked at her with all his  yearning soul in his eyes as he said  "good-bye," and hurried away.  His heart was light and gay as he  ran quickly down the steps and hailed a passing cab, little dreaming  what the future held , in store for  him.  At that moment Frederick Castleton was just entering1 the hotel  where he had left the note. He crossed the rotunda with a firm, ringing  step.  "Have you any letters or messages  for mo?" he asked of the clerk in attendance.  He was surprised to receive an answer in the negative.  "Was my note delivered to Mr.  Herbert Renwick, or the lady who  accompanied him?"  he asked.  "The note was delivered immediately, sir; then the lady and gentlemen left hurriedly. No message  whatever was left for you," responded tho clerk, glancing, up curiously at  tho handsome , stalwart American,  who turned so abruptly on his heel,  muttering bitterly between his  clinched teeth:  "The  despicable   coward!   he    has  -fled-to-csGape-me-r^������������������-���������   It never occurred to Frederick Cas-  tletmi to doubt that Helena and Herbert Kernyick had eloped together, or  that they had been married before  leaving Baltimore. He quite believed tliat Helena Was Herbert Ren-  wick's bride, and the thought was  more bitter than death to, him,  Meanwhile, in her room, Helena  was pacing wearily up and down in  deep thought.  "I havo averted the duel," she  sighed, pressing her cold hands to  her throbbing temples, "and now I  must go away���������-so far away,*. that  Herbert Renwick will never find me..  I will not share his aunt's home.  Why should I, an outcast upon, the  world's mercy, depend upon , ber  charity, because her nephew loves  me so truly, yet all in vain?"  Hor future stared her in tho face  onco more, just as it had stared her  In tho faco on tho dny poor Agnes  died. Sho had no money about hor  sho must, soil her jewels to obtain  sufficient money to pay hor bills, un-  till sho could find employment. Seeking employment���������ah mo, how drear  and how like a death-knoll tho  words sound to thoso who, by experience, know how much thoso  wortls imply! Helena know what  thoy meant but too well. If sho had  novor known tho luxury of wealth it  would not havo beon ho hard to go  back to thorold lifo again.  Sho wroto to Herbert Renwick,  thanking him for tho kindness shown  her, stating that Sho thought of loav-'  ing tlie country, and bidding him  good-byo, Sho scaled tho note, and,  leaving' It for Herbert whon ho  should' call, sorrowfully took hor departure,  Jlorbort Ronwick wns half mad  with denpnlr when ho called tlio next  afternoon with his nunt, nnd Helena's fnrowell noto of deep rogrot  wns put Into his hands*.

Hor la. t duller was ovhauMcd, mid  ftlitt was growimr d.^pernto, Sho  must obtain t'lupio.vuH'ni of Koine Horc,  before nightfall, ur gu tu bed sttjt-  peilesa.  It,was with a heavy heart she set  out to answer Mme. Avery's advertisement for a governess. The mad-  ame and her husband were busily engaged in reading a letter in the library when she was ushered into  their presence.  Helena raised her veil timidly as  she made known her errand. She  wondered why the lady's face grew  so hard and stern, while her husband smiled so pleasantly, and seemed exceedingly pleased with her appearance.  "I would like the position very  much," said Helena, earnestly. "I  would do my best to meet your approbation, for I love little children  very dearly."  "I am sorry," exclaimed Mme.  Avery, flushing nervously under her  husband's keen glance, "but you are  too young to suit me; I wish an elderly lady to fill the position."  "That's all nonsense!" declared her  husband'! energetically. "It's terribly  discouraging to see old and homely  faces forever about the house. Madame, you could not, I am sure, do  better than engage this very charming young lady. She knows that I  am fond of pretty, girlish faces, and  for that reason she takes great care  to have none about," he added,  stroking his waxed mustache with  his white hand in a fascinating way.  No more embarrassing situation  could have been imagined.  Mme. Avery drew herself up with  a proud, stately air. It pained her  to the very core of hor heart to have  the secret sorrow of her life rudely  laid   bare.  Before she could reply her husband  continued;  "I will take this matter into my  own hands in this case; I a.m master  and head of Cite house. You may  consider yourself engaged for the po-  ~5Tt"iTiT*7~^it~'yO'"ir"'clTo(5se"tTFremaim 7H~  ter reflection m.adaiiie will agree  that I have acted sensibly in this  matter. By the bye," he concluded,  "what lias condemned such a beautiful creature to tlie drudgery of a  governess's ' life? 'With such a fate  as that it can never be from choice."  Something, very like tears stood in  Mme. Avory'S'������������������oyes," which, she tried  in vain to conceal.  Helena pitied tho poor wife; she  understood, perfectly, just how matters stood.  "Am I to answer, your husband?"  asked Helena, proudly.  '.'''Certainly not, My husband is  jesting, Ho forgets my presence.  He is jesting, I assure you. You  must neither answer nor listen."  "And .1 sny that she must listen!"  declared, her husband, with a jolly  laugh. "I will'leave you," ho continued, with a low bow to his wife  and nno'thor look ut Ildoae, frr which  sho could have annihilated him; "and  I trust when I return to find you established in our family. Au rovoir,  mademoiselle.",  With enothor fascinating smile at  Helena ho quitted the room.  Whon tho door closed after him  Mme. Avory fell back in hor chair  with a gasping moan born of outraged wifely pride, bitter anger, and  the fierce pangs of jealousy.  Thon., after a momentary pause,  sho looked up at Helena.  ���������'I should liko to ongago you, my  dear child," sho said, looking up  through hor tears'at Holona's beautiful fnco; "but I foar It would be  neither pleasant for you nor myself.  My���������iny husband would talk nonsense to you���������nnd that would not  do, I am by no means Jealous," sho  added, engerl.y, "still, I nm bettor  satisfied when I luivo older nnd moro  experienced people nbout me, I am  sorry to sond you awny," she said,  gently, ns Helena roso to tnko her  departure,  She followed Helena to tho door,  In.vlng iv delnining, trembling hnnd  upon her nrm.  "l,oi, inn glvo you n. word of caution," she snid, nervously; "you nro  very young, very bountiful, nnd if 1  can rend your fiivo nriglit I should  Hay Hint ymi ore. very innocent, I  would advise you, if in the future  you should see my husband, to avoid  him*���������puss hhn without recognition.

Hho    turned   away abruptly,    IIo  followed.  "I sincerely impo my wlfo has  nindo nn om-agemont with you, my  dear youny lndy?" ho sold, eagerly,  peering impertinently and admiring'  Vy into tho flushed, bwituUlui tece,  "Your wife has not engaged me,  sir," returned Helena, haughtily, attempting to pass him.  "Confound a jealous woman!" he  muttered, under his breath; "I say  that you shall have the place, if you  desire it. I assure you, upon my  honor as a gentleman, when I have  a few words with her she'll be pleased to reverse her decision. I pray  you return with me, and we will  soon settle the matter, my dear."  "Your wife's wishes should be  your law!" exclaimed Helena, with  withering scorn. "Allow me to  pass. Do not dare to address another word to me."  A low laugh rippled from between  his white teeth.  "What a prude and vixen you  are!" he exclaimed, turning on his  heel; "you should be pleased at the  interest I take in you."  Without deigning a reply, Helena  walked indignantly on, leaving the  conceited master of the Avery mansion staring after her in surprise and  amusement, not unmixed With vexation,  plainly expressed in his face.  Discouraged and considerably depressed, Helena turned in the dire-  tion of her lodgings. At the first  corner she observed quite a commotion.  A pair Of prancing hays, attached  to a basket phaeton, were tearing  li'ke lightning down the boulevard,  and the occupant of the phaeton���������  a dainty, golden-haired young creature, was clinging to the dash-board,  screaming frantically.  Helena was brave and daring by  nature, and in an instant she had,  decided what course to pursue.  "Jump!" she cried out, springing  to the edge of the pavement; "jump,  and I will catch you!"  And, to the wonder of the  breathless, terror-stricken by  standers, the golden-haired young  creature heard, understood and obeyed; but not an instant too soon, for  the next momenl the phaeton lay  dashed into pieces against an adjacent lamp-post, and the young lady,  through sheer terror, lay in, a deep  swoon in Helena's arms.  "Why, I declare, it is Rosinel, the  the bewitching little actress!" cried  the. by-stan-ders in a breath.  But as they spoke she showed signs  of consciousness, and struggled out)  of Helena's arms to her feet, but she  sunk back with a cry of pain. "My  ankle is sprained!" she oried, faintly. "I can not walk. Oh, what  shall I do, and the new opera to be  brought out to-morrow night? Won't  4Loai_stop_a cab_������or���������me-,_and~acGoni���������  puny me as far as my lodgings?" she  asked, plaintively, looking up into  Helenrt's face. "I am afraid to be  left by myself. I should be sure to  faint again with the pain. Oh,  please come!",  Helena consented timidly, looking  with wonder at the beautiful littlo  creature of whom she bad heard so  much, and an hour later she was  seated in tlie little actress's magnificent blue-and-gold boudoir that  looked like a fairy's bower, pouring  into her sympathetic ear tlio story of  her unsuccessful search, for employment. ,'  The sprained ankle was bandaged  and was doing nicely, and the little  actress lay back among the silken  pillows thinking deeply.  "How would you like to go on tho  stage?" sho asked, gazing up into tho  girl's beautiful face, a peculiar glitter in her bluo eyes.  "On tho stage!" gasped Helena;  "why���������-I���������I���������" Sho stopped short,  gazing at her companion in speech-  loss dismay.  "Yes, why not?" exclaimed the  llttlo actress, impatiently.  "I would never mako an actress,"  replied Helena, blushing. "I aim not  suited for it. I was never in a theater In my life."  Tho littlo queon of the English  stage opened her blue eyos In surprise. "You are behind tho times  then," she answered. "I havo a proposition to mako you," sho continued, excitedly, "and you must not refuse what I shall ask you."  A momontnry silence foil between  them, thon Rosinel continued, abruptly, "I am tho star of tho Oaloty  Theater; to-morrow night wo woro  to bring o.iit a now opora; It was  to havo been tho hit of the season,  and now," slio cried, breaking into  a passion of tears, "my sprained  ankle will prevent mo from singing  tiio loading rule to-morrow night,  and tho part will Im given to my  rival nnd bitterest enemy, That  would kill mo!" sho cried. "You  don't know whnt, such nn opportunity means to an ambitious rival;  thoy are Jiim, wailing for such  chniut'S lo gniup thom and hoop  thom, nnd triumph over you. Slut  must not. hnvn the loading role, You  must prevent her,"  "II"  cried   Helena,  nrjhnst;   "why,  how could 1?"  '"I will    toll    you," crlod Rnslnel,  llt'O'it Mm***.!-"    "tl..'    tnitfle   Iti   imt    i\ I tn  cult; yon can en.'illv muster it by tomorrow night; you shrill nceompnny  my maid to tho theater; sho will  dress you for the part without, attracting attention us to yinr identity; you aro discovered when thu  curium i inch.  "I would���������bo���������dlncovorodl" tfchood.  Helena, In horror,  "Why, you littlo gooso, you don't  understand! In theatrical parlance,  'bolng discovered' meniiN being upon  Iho stage when tho curtain goes up.  ^ ou must do this to cheat my rival  of hor laurels," sho cried, excitedly!  thousand that finds such a glorious  opportunity offered her in a life-time  to go on the stage, and have the  star's part at that," concluded Rosinel "Yet I own frankly that I  do this simply that my rival shall  not make capital out of my misfortune. You tell me you are searching for work-���������take what the gods  provide."  For a moment only Helena, hesitated. An outcast, forlorn and penniless in the great city of London,  searching for employment,, she dared not refuse Rosinel's bewildering  offer; she must accept what fortune  had in so strange a manner placed  at her feet,  Seven o'clock on the following  evening a cab containing two dark-  robed figures, one of which was heavily veiled, was rolling rapidly  through the gas-lighted streets toward the Gaiety Theater.  Once or twice Helena drew her  veil back from her frightened face  and ga^ed out of the cab window,  but eacli time shrunk back trembling  against the dark cushions.  Evory place that her eyes rested  she could read on tho flaming billboards as she whirled quickly past  them:  '' Rosinel To-xigbt as 'Pbincess Gay.' "  Rosinel in white, Rosinel in blue,  Rosinel in crimson and gold. The  city was fairly flooded with advertisements of Rosinel the brilliant  little queen of the operatic stage.  "I can never take her part," gasped Helena, the full force of her position forcing itself upon her. "My  voice will be sure to fail me."  "Oh, fy,M laughed Miss Rosinel's  maid, "you'll get along splendidly;  why, your face alone will carry the  audience by storm. The brilliant  lights and the music will exhilarate  you. Yes, I predict you will make  a great hit."  "But I know nothing about the  stage; I shall bo so confused," cried  Helena, piteously, wishing with all  her heart that she had not allowed  the beautiful little actress to persuade her to take her part.  Miss Rosinel's maid laughed.  "Novices often get along the best,"  she said. "They step on the stage  aiid face the footlights full of enthusiasm and life, because they have  never experienced the terrors' of  stage fright���������what the threatening  scowl of the leader of the orchestra  means if they miss a note, the great  responsibility of giving their cuesi  loud .and distinct for the other act-*  ���������ors���������to���������appear���������on~1;h'e~st~agc7"or~tlnr  terrible -storming there'll be if it  should slip from their memory. Ah,"  '���������om! intiod Miss Rosinel's maid, "life  on the stage is by no means what  romantic young girls picture it, for  it's a- life of-endless strife, jealousy  and hardship that people little  dream 'of. -If an actress is clever  and takes with tho public, her comrades look'-upon her with the bitterest envy and will do everything in  the/r power to keep her'back and'  prevent her from making'a hit, Tt,  don't take long lo toke lhe starch  out , of these insipid, pretty-faced  girls, who got stoce-struck, when  they once face the foot-lights. They  find out all but too quickly Hint  thoy nro not 'Hie brilliant,  beautiful  gifted creatures that they took thorn-  selves to bo. It takes from fivo to  ten years to understand tho tricks of  tho business, and then tliey wake up  to the fact that their beauty is on  the wane and their attractiveness Is  ovor, Stars take good care not to  have thoso tod ambitious pooplo in  thoir companies. Thoy soon find excuses io discharge thom or keep them  back."  "You don't seem to like the  stage," said Helena, in, astonishment. "I wonder that you aro connected with it."  Miss Rosinel's maid laughed, admitting frankly that sho had' been  connected with it so long sho  couldn't do anything else.  At last tho cab drovo up boforo tho  door, depositing Its burden.  Hurriedly Miss Itoslnol's nmld led  her veiled companion by the hand  through tho narrow, dusty passages,  ovor piles of lum bor and stago properties that woro to bo usod during  tho ovening; stumbling against tho  stago carpontor nnd "supers" In tho  dim passages, thoy emerged at last  into tho apari.merit known as tho  star's drawing-room,  Miss Rosinel's nut Id turned tho koy  in'tho lock, then, with deft lingers,  throw off Helena's veil and wraps,  "Hour mo, don't tremble ho!" sho  cried, clasping thu gold Inicklo of  llclona's pink sat in slipper, "Why,  you'ro working yourself up into a  III. of excitement nl ready,"  Sho llttlo dieaiiieil file causo of her  oxciti'ineiil. was tho dress tho laid  Just 'dipped over her head. It was  a roso-pink silk, fairly glittering vHh  Hooil-jwitrl.s over ita slilituucriiig uuv-  fucu.  turpentine ls used. Turpentine la not  good for windoAY glass, because It  must be washed off carefully or it will  leave a sticky film. The white marks  left on varnished wood after water haa  been spilled on it can be entirely taken -  out with alcohol.

Rub  the woodwork well with the nlcohol,  then let it dry before touching it again.

Don't try to get a cinder out of the  eye by rubbing the injured orb; rub  the other eye.  Don't sleep too much or too little.  Too much sleep weakens the eyes; too  little fatigues them.  Don't work longer than two, hours  without closing the eyes and resting  them for five minutes.  Don't neglect to bathe the eyes before retiring, so as to remove any dust  that may have gathered on the lids  during the day.  High HccIm.

'One Explodes With Formidable Noteo  Like Dynamite Bomb.  Nature has made many kinds ol  bombs ii), the shape of sea pods which  open with great force and project the  contents to a considerable distance.  There is a.seashell which explodes  with a formidable noise and suggests  a veritable dynamite bomb.  Not long ago a young lady wandering on the shore of Mobile Bay picked  -up a handful of shells left by the tide.  Among them were the shells of a  :small marine snail, the largest of  -���������which were not more than a half inch  in diameter. She dropped them into  lier pocket and forgot all about 1,hem  llll some days afterward she noticed  an unpleasant odor which came from  her wardrobe. On taking the shells  from her pocket one of them dropped  <on the floor and exploded with a sharp  noise loud enough to be heard in an  adjoining room. She tried another with  the same result. The shells were  then examined, by a scientist, who  found the mouth of each firmly enclosed by a membrane of greater or  less thickness, formed by the drying  ������o������ the animal's slime. This had prob-  ���������u'aly .occurred soon after removal from  the moisture of the beach, and the  inhabitants of the shell dying, the  Jigases of decomposition had entirely  ���������filled the air space. On exerting a little pressure a loud explosion was produced, the shell fragments flying in  .gill directions. Out of a dozen shells  only two failed to explode. The conditio us. most successful in making the  ���������experiment seemed to be removal from  the beach in hot, dry weather, which  caused the slime to be exuded in  greater quantities than usual and  ���������dried up rapidly.  ���������������������������=���������^A'*hat_the~*Stames-e��������� Eat:    ;    *""  "Siamese food principally consists of  dried, frequently rotted, fish and rice,  done into curries which comprise a little of about every kind of condiment,  and  especially a very. popular sauce  called   namphrik.   a chutney-like and  thoroughly mixed  thing made of red  pepper, shrimp, garlic, onions, citron,  .ginger and tamarind seeds.

BLOOD DISEASES  Can all be Cured by the Use of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  More than half the disease in the  world is caused by bad blood ��������� weak  blood, blood poisoned by impurities.  Bad blood is the cause of all the headaches and backaches, the lumbago and  rheumatism, the neuralgia ami sciatica,  tho debility and biliousness aud indigestion, the paleness and pimples and all  the disfiguring skin diseases like eczema,  that show how impure tho blood actually is. It is no uso trying a different  medicine for each disease, because, they  all spring from the same causo ��������� bad  blood. To curo disease you musr get  right down to the root of the trouble in  the blood. That is what Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills do. They mako new, rich  blood. Common medicines only:touch  the symptoms of disease. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills root out the cause. That is  why these pills curo when doctors and  common medicines fail. Here is positive  proof:-^-"I suffered agony from indigestion," says Mr. Fred Fillis, of Grand  Desert, N. B. "I had no appetite for  my meals and no energy for my' work;  my stomach caused mo constant distress  aud everything I ate lay like lead on  my chest. At times I felt my life a burden. I was always doctoring, but it did  me no good. Then a little book came  into my hands, and I read Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills would cure indigestion. I  got them and began taking them, and I  soon found they were helping me. My  appetite began to improve and my food  to digest bettor. I used the pills for a  couple of months and I was well. Now.  I am always ready for my meals and I  can eat anything, and all the credit is  due to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I keep  the pills in the house all the time, and  I occasionally take a few as a precaution.  I can honestly advise all dyspeptics to  use this medicine, as I am sure it will  curo them as it did me."  Give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair  trial and they will cure you, simply because they make that rich, strong blood  that disease cannot resist. See that you  get the genuine pills, with the full name  "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale  People," on the wrapper around every  box.

Late Senator Wark Tells of Struggle  of His Early Years.  The late Senator, Wark, who died on  August 20, 1905, at the age of 101 years,  six months and one day, had quite a  strenuous early life.  "I had an education to qualify me  for the duties of a merchant's clerk or  bookkeeper," he said in telling the story  of his early days, "but I found there  was little such employment to be had.  Some of my acquaintances, older than  I, had come to America before, and  had spent what money they had brought  with them, wrote home pitiful accounts  of thoir sufferings. I was determined  not to commit such an error.  "There was plenty of employment for  any one willing to work and good wages,  and I worked in a shipyard through the  fall and winter. Ih the spring I removed to what is now called Moncton, to  help build a small vessel. I remember  part of the work I did for her was to  make the dead-eyes for the riggers. I  then painted her, and as my employer  had to go a way. in her he engaged me  to take charge of his store and books,  which I did for some time.  "The parish school required a teacher, and I took the situation and taught  for two years. I taught school for eight  years, teaching mensuration, navigation, algebra, Euclid and trigonometry.  I think I was doing more work than  two teachers do now. It proved too  much for my health and I had to give  it up, and I next engaged in mercantile  business for thirty years."    .  Mr. Wark liked to tell the story of  one of his teachers in mathematics."  "There was a man in Belfast then,"  he said, "named Thompson, who used  to get out an almanac every year. He  was great in mathematics. In every  book he'd have a lot of puzzling questions, some needing advanced knowledge for their solving. I remember  one, the Irish papers said was impossible of solution, but my teacher worked it out. He and Thompson corresponded about it and grew quite friendly before the almanac man moved to  Glasgow. That Thompson's son is Sir  William Thompson, or rather Lord Kelvin. So you see I studied under pretty  good men."  Executions In Toronto.  'Tis rather a gruesome subject but Is  full of interest as a record, the executions in Tororr-io.

CHASE'S OINTMENT  The stages of eczema are marked by  redness of the skin ��������� heat and inflammation���������swelling ��������� watery discharge-  formation of a crust or scale ��������� and almost constant itching varying from  that which is simply annoying to that  which is positively beyond human endurance.  The beginning is often neglected chafing and skin irritation, or a small pimple or sore which has been poisoned by  the clothing.  Too frequent washing is to be avoided, but the afflicted parts should be  thoroughly cleansed with Packer's Tar  Soap and tepid water. After careful  drying (not rubbing) with a soft towel,  apply Dr. Chase's Ointment plentifully.  The ointment may seem a little se-  vere at first, but this is necessary to  a thorough cleansing of the sores, for  rolief from the dreadful itching will  come after the first few applications,  and thorough cure will be the reward  of persistent treatment.  One thing you can be certain of, and  that is that you are not experimenting  when you use Dr. Chase's Ointment as  a curo for eczema, saltrheum, psoriasis,  tetter, and similar skin diseases. It has  acquired its #world-wide reputation by  the positive cure of these very diseases,  and while using it you can seo that  gradually and certainly it is allaying tha  inflammation and healing up the annoying, and distressing sores.  Mr. William Castle, Eagle Hill, Alta.,  writes,~"About Nov. 1st, 1903, I broke  out with small red blotches on my arms  and they afterwards spread all ovor my  body. It was so itchy that I could not  sleep at nights for scratching. I suffered untold misery and was almost driven  te desperation. I tried everything at  hand and my friends recommended  numerous remedies all to no avail.  "When I began the use of Dr. Chase's  Ointment I had little hope of relief but  tho result has been wonderful. From  the first this preparation gave relief from  the dreadful itching and it has now  brought about a cure." ���������  Dr. Chase's Ointment, 00 cents a box,  at all dealers, or Edmanson, Bates & Co.,  Toronto.

Then an American Citizen Discovered  Thnt Iridium Could Be Died For  Protecting the Points, and the Perfect Pen Resulted.  To an American is due the credit  for having made tho fountain pen the  nseful article it has come to be, for  without the gold pen point, which can-  aot corrode, tbe fountain pen would be  useless.  Tbe manufacture of gold pens was  lommenced iu the United States in 1S35  by a wa&hmaker of Detroit. Attempts  bad been made in England to make  gold pens prior to that time, but they  met wity little success. Alloyed gold  is too soft to make a durable point, and  this circumstance made it necessary  to protect the pen points with diamonds or rubies until John Isaac Hawkins, a citizen of the United States, but  residing in England while the experiments in the manufacturing of gold  pens were in progress there, accidentally discovered that the native alloy of  Iridium and osmium ore, one of the  bardest and most refractory of all metallic alloys, could be used for protecting the points to much better advantage and more cheaply.  Hawkins* rights were purchased by a  clergyman of Detroit, who induced the  watchmaker above mentioned to manufacture gold pens. The first pensmade  by him were poor substitutes for the  quill then in use. In 1840 his plant  was taken to New York, where the  business was enlarged.  Quite an improvement was added to  the plant by the machines for the making and tempering of the pens, invented by John Rendell, one of the employees of the establishment. This establishment soon produced a gold pen  so perfect that it combined the elasticity of the quill with the permanency  of the metal. About 1850 it was discovered that by imbedding the iridium  points ln the gold Instead of soldering  them on the corrosive influence of the  ink on the two metals, the solder and  the gold, was avoided and a firmer  hold in the pen was given to the points.  The gold pen bas been brought to Its  present degree of perfection by the  -American���������manufacturer���������and���������the���������industry from its inception has been  characterised by the use of American  methodr For the production of the  gold prs. a high degree of skill ls necessary, .md only experts are employed  In the different plants.  Tha gold used in the making of the  pens ls obtained from the United  States assay office. It ls then melted  nud alloyed about sixteen carats fine  and rolled Into a long, narrow ribbon,  from which pen blanks or flat plates  in the shape of a pen, but considerably  thicker than the finished pen, are cut  by means of a fever press or die and  punch. The blunt nib of the blank is  notched or recessed at the end to receive the iridium that forms the exceedingly bard point wbich all good  pens possess.  The Iridium Is coated wltb ft cream  of borax ground ln water and laid In  the notch formed In the end of tbo  blank. It Is then secured by a process  of sweating, wblcb Is nothing more or  loss than melting tbe gold of wblcb tbs  pen Is formed so tbat It unites solidly  wltb tbo irldJ'"a. Tbe blank is then  passed betSrwn rollers of peculiar  form to {five ft gradually diminishing  thickness from tbo point backward.  Tbe rolls bavo a small cavity in wbich  tbe extreme ond of tbo iridium pointed  Bib Is placed to prevent Injury to. tbs  Iridium. After rolling tbs nib of every  pen is stiffened and rendered spongy  by hammering,  This Is tbs most Important process  In tbe manufacture of tbe pen, as tbs  elasticity of tbo pen depends entirely  ttpon tbls operation. The pen Is then  trimmed by a press similar to tbat  which ts used for cutting out ths  blanks or by automatic machinery.  When tbo blank has been trimmed tbs  namo of the manufacturer aud tbe  numbor of the pon are stamped on It  by means of a screw press.  Tho pen 1b given Its convex surface  also by means of a screw press, tbs  bljink being pressed between a concave  die beneath nnd a convex one above.  Quite a little forco Is necessary to  bring the pen to tho required convex-  Ity, and when this operation Is completed two Jaws approach tho blank  nn.I press It up on opposite edges, thus  living the pen Its final shape,  Tbo next stop Is to out tlio Iridium  the grinding is done the pen is polished  upon buff wheels, which completes the  process of manufacture.  Before the pen is placed upon the  market, however, it Is given a thorough  Inspection to see that lt possesses the  proper elasticity, fineness and weight.  then passed to au inspector who tests  It and weighs lt.

"Nearly every person who commits  suicide by drowning partly undresses  before entering the water," suid Dr.  Wynn Westcott at an Inquest in Loudon. ���������  AN INDIAN LEGEND.      ~  The Wny Nun-nb-bejii Mnde the New  Enrth After  the Flood.  "I will tell you tlie story of Nan-ab-  beju. He is the man who made the  new earth after the big water came  and covered it.  "Big waters came, and tliere was  nothing anywhere except water and  the sky and tlie sun and the stars,"  said the old Chippewa. "Nan-ab-beju  made a great raft and put on it some  roll<f������ of Bvprvthinar tiint hnd b������*������n or  tne eartn���������specimens of each kind ot  animals, of all the trees, shrubs, plants,  flowers, birds, rocks, and one man and  one woman. In short, he did not leave  anything except sand. He forgot to  save some sand, and yet he could not  do anything without it. He sailed out  far into the flood and made a little  island, very, very small. Then he found  he had no sand. He made a very big  line, longer than hundreds of deerskins cut up into ribbons and tied together, and he took a muskrat off the  raft and tied the line to it and threw  It into the water. The frightened rat  dove down and down, and when there  was no longer any pulling at the line  Nan-ab-beju knew the rat was at the  bottom of the sea. Then he began to  pull the line up. At the end of it came'  the poor muskrat, stone-dead,drowned.  -^ut~J^an^bibfij.u_^aA^i~th{iJuitlie_Jittle-,  black paws of the animal were clenched as if there was something in their  palms and that the rat held tight hold  of even after*death. The little paws  were forced open, and in them were  found half a dozen grains of sand. One  grain would have been enough for the  great Nan-ab-beju.  "Nan-ab-beju blew his breath on the  muskrat, and its life camo back to it.  Then he mixed the sand in the little  island that fie had,made and blew on  that also. As ,he' -blew and blew it  swelled nnd swelled until lt was so big  that Nau-ab^beju could not see the  sides or end of lt In i y direction.  Nan-ab-beju was not <. ilte" certain  whether he had made it as big as tlie  old earth beforo the big wator came.  Ho had to make it as big as It had  been-so big, In fact, that no man or  creature could find the end of lt. He  had plenty of animals that could travel  over tho earth and find out how big lt  was, bo he decided to tako two huge  buffaloes off the raft and scud them to  soo whether thero wns any end to what  bo bad made. Tho buffaloes ran off  with all speed, and Nan-ab-beju sat  down and waited. In a few days the  buffaloes camo back and said they had  found tbo end of the enrth. So Nan-abbe J u blow und blew and blew ou tho  ground again, and It swelled so fast  tbat you could see It broadening. When  be bad blown until bo was tired bo  took a crow off tbe raft and sont it to  see If it could find the end of tho  enrth. The crow was gone n vory long  time, but at last It came sailing back  on tho wind and snid It bad flowu till It  was tired out and there was no sign of  any ond to tlio earth.  "Nan-ab-beju, to make sure, blew  again nnd swelled tho enrth n grout  doal bigger. Then ho untied and uncaged and untrnppod nil tho nnlmnls  and drove them from tbo raft on to tho  hind nnd left them freo to roam whero  they might IIo took nil tho trees,  plnntH, bushes nml shrubs nud planted  thom around, ami be blow tho gnms  out of his bands ns hard an ho could  blow It, so thnt It scattered nil ovor.

Wtows-i  he left the other members of the erewm  were held in Montevideo awaiting sero-  tence on what Steele says is -wily te>  trumped-up charge. Steele, seeing boir  matters were shaping, thought it beat*  to quit the Uruguayan capital on tl������e  first opportunity, and is well satisfied  to get back to his home in Victoria a������*  ter months of a most trying experience  ln Montevideo. When he left on ApriS  3rd the prosecuting attorn������y In tb������  case had recommended to the. ctrarta  that Capt. Ryan, commanding* tbm  schooner, Bhould receive Ave years' tm-r  prlsonment; that Wim Ryan, -chief  mate, should get two years; Wm. Por-  ler, second officer, one year; and tb������  members of the crew should be imprisoned for six months.  Put In For Water.  It was about November l'lth    that  Donoghue put in to within about four  and one-half miles   of   the   shore   of  Uruguay for water.    The weather wa������  so rough that it was impossible to lan������t  a boat, and after waiting all the next  day the captain decided to leave.     A  cutter,  described by  the Uruguayans  as a man-of-war, approached, and after  firing three shots across the bow    eft  the schooner the, vessel was boar-BedL  No attempt was made  to investijratw -  affairs aboard the schooner, but after'  taking ten of the crew of nineteen meisf  oft a crew was put on the Agnes Don_*--'  ghue  to  bring  the  vessel  to    Montevideo.   This was accordingly done, an&  upon their arrival the officers and men  were imprisoned for sixty-seven  days.  Couldn't Get Redress.  Repeated   attempts   were   made  by  the., officers and men to get redress. Th������  British Minister was appealed-to, but  the authorities replied that $5,000 of a  bond would have to be put up.   Finally at The end~of"sixty-seven dayPtfiii-"  captain was taken back on board ttoo  schooner with a griard of' five men in.  charge.    Other members  of ' the ' crcrr '���������  were allowed to come and go on takingr  an oath that they would appear where-  called upon to do so.    Steele describes?  the treatment accorded the men in the"  jail as none too good.    The floor was*  bare rock, and the rations meagre.
