A Sale of Work and Concert  will be given by the Ladies' AidV������f  Grace Methodic Churoh on March  23rd An excellent ptogramme is  being prepared. A number of fancy  and usetul articles will be offered  for sale during the afternoon, while  refreshments will also be served.  As this is the only occasion, since  the bazaar which was held a year  ago, in whioh ihe publio are invited  to assist', it is to be hoped that a  generouB response will be made.  Since th-.* advent of Rev. Mr Misen-  er, who has made himself extremely I'Opular with all classes, tbe  Methodist Churoh has been entirely  Belf-tupporting, to the great credit  of tbe clergyman and congregation.  Tuere still*being a debt on the  church building, the entire pro*  oeeds of the sale of work will be  devoted to that fund. Particulars  of concert, &c, will be published  later.  The dance and concert given In  aid of Trinity Churoh, last week,  was largely attended. To Mrs Hill  is due the credit for her untiring  efforts in arranging the affair. Several new numbers were on tbe programme. Mrs Christmas treated  the audience to an exquisite rendering of tne iiueruiezsu irom Cavalier ia Kustioana, while Rev. Mr  Christmas and Mr Napier proved  themselves a decided acquisition to  musical circles, their singing being  vciy much upprcciatod. Mr Taylor  displayed his power over the man*  dolln, in several selections, the  "Lost Chord" especially meriting a  hearty applause. Mrs Hill and  Miss McQuat wbo have appeared  horo before contributed their share  towards a very interesting programme.���������Com.

Barnstaple Fair.  An annual fair at Barnstaple, England, bas beoH held for hundreds of  years. It was originally held In July,  but tho time was altered to September  by a charter granted by Queen Mary.  'Barastaple fair Is inaugurated with a  ceremony in the town hall, where a  special meeting of the town council is  held uud spiced ale and toast (prepared  in the council chamber by tbe beadles  and mace bearers) are dispensed to all  who crowd the building. Appropriate  toasts are proposed and speeches made  by the local member of parliament and  others, after which the mayor preceeds  lu procession to three points of the  town, at each of which ls read his proclamation opening the fair and enjoining all concerned to keep the peace during its continuance. Not until tbls  ceremony has been performed can the  business and fun of the fair proceed.  On the Inauguration of the fair a huge  stuffed white glove, adorned with flowers, ls thrust on a pole from one of the  upper windows of the town hall and  remains in evidence during the continuance of the festival as the symbol of  open handed welcome.  Deterioration of TVatcli Spring*.  "I wish l knew what particular thing  is lacking in the manufacture of our  watch springs nowadays," said a New  York jeweler, "it really does seem as  though they had permanently lost the  art of tempering watch springs. I sent  out a hundred dollar watch the other,  ���������day, brand new. just from the factory,  and the spring broke within twenty-four hours. Manufacturers have  spent thousands of dollars within the  last fow years experimenting to get  back the old quality In their springs  arid they have failed. I can never tell  whether a spring will last a week or a  year, nnd the.v seem to be getting worse  instead of better."  'The Lt.aor Trade Ik Cuba.

Freeman, the historian, was naturally familiar in the spirit to readers of  the Saturday Review. In the flesh Mr.  Leslie Stephen's single meeting with  the historian was in the nature of a  collision.  "I came in contact with him only  once, and at a later period. He wrote  a life of Alfred for the Dictionary of  National Biography under my editorship, but declined to do more because  we had a difference of opinion as to  whether Athelstane should be spelled  with an 'A.' That; was, I confess, a  question to which I was culpably indifferent; but I. hiad taken competent  advice, and, my system (I forget what  it was) had been elsewhere sanctioned  by the great historian Stubbs. Now.  as Freeman was never tired of asserting the infallibility of Stubbs. I 'innocently thought that 1 might take refuge behind so eminout an authority.  The result was that for once Freeman  blasphemed Stubbs and refused to cooperate any longer in an utiseholarlike  enterprise."  .',.['.-.The Druggist I������pst In IJmen,   ���������',.,  Some one in Scandinavia unearthed  tbe report of the examiners on |D.r. Ibsen's papers at his examination tor the  A Fortune In Ambergris.  A hundred pounds of ambergris has  been seized at Seattle as stolen property. The appraised valuo is $30 an  ounce, or $-18,000 for the hundred  pounds. A hundred pounds of puro  gold would not be worth as much by  $10,000. Ambergris is scarcer than  gold. It Is more of nn uncertain quantity. It Is harder to find and harder to  transport. It is found floating in lumps  in the ocean and occasionally ln the Intestines of the spermaceti whale.  There are, however,, few sperm whales  available,'end the lumps of ambergris  have boon growing scarcer as the  whales have decreased in nnmher.,  Tbe Same Brand.

McClure  Donald Murray was not thinking  about Hie strike.  Iu fact, it made precious little difference to him at just this moment  whether any trains ran ou the D. It,  and G. tracks at all. His engagement  with Miriam Benlley had been suddenly derailed,, and that was trouble  enough for him. Ho had appointed  himself a wrecking crew of one lo act  tliat. very night at the church fair and  possibly to undo tho mischief wrought  by too much steam in the form of  hasty words. And then had come the  orders from headquarters to stand by  Ihs instrument until relieved.  Brownsville was an unimportant station, in the center of a thriving farming section. Its stockyards and grain  elevator dwarfed the passenger station, and there wasn't enough business In the whole town to support a  night telegraph station. In fact, Donald, with his lusty helper and messenger boy, Andy Johnson, constituted the  entire D. It. and G. force.  Young Murray was not afraid of  work, and at any other time the order  to remain at his post for twenty-four  hours would have affected him not at  all. But tonight he thought of Wilson, Graham, Donaldson arid the rest  all clustered about tho table where  Miriam was selling fudge and other  homemade sweetmeats, and his hands  were-plunged into his pockets, even as  his soul was plunged deeper in gloom.  The idea of disobeying orders, however, never entered his head, though  he did not fully realize the danger  which beset thc road. This strike  through the great wild west was not  the ordinary seething turmoil of sudden dissatisfaction which yields quickly to pacific treatment It had been  a prolonged, quiet struggle between  capital and labor, with no apparent  gain on either side, but an attempt to  install a yard force of "scabs" at Mid-  ford Junction had precipitated active  demonstrations. Seeds of trouble bad  ~l)een~_own'w-ithn,eckiMS~li������nd������~I57tIIg"  shops and yards, where the stolid  Swedes, seeing their jobs and comfortable home lives threatened, bad set  their teeth hard. And when a Swede  says nothing, but draws his eyelids  down to a narrow slit, railroad authorities know that trouble is browing in  the brain behind that stolid face.  .  ���������������       *       *       *       *    ,; *   '    *  Andy Johnson stock his head into  the door. Murray caught sight of a  vivid red necktie and knew what was  coming. j  "i'ou won't need me, will you? I  want to take in the fair again."  Andy's long, lank body, clad Jn a  wonderful store suit of gray, green  and brown checks, followed his good  nnturcd faco. Lie closed the door, and  his voice took on a wheedling tone.  "There's goin' to be such doin's,  honest there Is, Mr. Murray! That  there fish pond just takes my oyo, nnd  yen get the funniest things what you  ain't cspcctln' to got. Then there's  Kola' to bo a votin' contest tonight.  That silver toilet set cost so much no  one won't buy It, so they're goin' to  vote it off to the most popular lady  present."  Murray's faco was suddenly illumined,  "Of course yon can so. Andy. Thoro  won't ho much doing hero tonight. Besides, I want you to do somo voting  for me." Uo laid n live dollar bill oa  the table. "Mitra Bontley must havo  that prize."  "Of course she will. Everybody likes  Miss Miriam," assented Andy, with  oyes fairly devouring tlio bunk noto.  "But wc wnnt her to be so far ahead  of tlio other girls tlmt they won'! bo In  tbo running. Hoc? Now, you voto tlmt  money slow. IJuvc tt changed and voto  it n quarter nt n tlmo."  Andy nodded and thon, filled with  Import unco, tnrnod to go,  "Walt o mlnuto." *  Murray drew a pad toward Mm and  bit his pencil nervously.

Ho  went tbe rounds of his little station,  making sure that all was secure. Then  he examined his revolver and laid it  within easy reach on the table and sat  staring at tbe instrument while he reviewed the dangerous points between  Brownsville and the stations east and  west Tbere was the cut seventeen  miles east. It had once been a favorite; spot with train robbers, but little  harm could' come there from a derailment. The one dangerous spot was  the Jamison arroyo, below the town  i.-r Hiroo miles nt least If Na 3 was  stalled there and the fast freight imp-  peued to whirl after it round the curve,  as it usually. did now that the time  card was demoralized by weak service,  there might���������  Murray closed a nervous hand over  his revolver. Nothing must happen.  He sat thus with straining ears for  half an hour. To him it seemed as  if hours had passed when suddenly  he heard a faint tap at the outside  door. Very cautiously and with revolver in hand he stepped to the door  and asked in a firm, clear voicef  "Who's there?"  "It's���������it's me���������Miriam."  Almost dropping his revolver, Murray threw open the door and drew the  girl inside.  "Miriam!" he gasped and led her into  his little den.  "Yes," she replied, with the calmness of the feminine mind which can  ignore past grievances when it chooses  to rise above them. "I wanted to thank  you for helping me to win that lovely prize, and I���������well���������I didn't think  Andy���������could thank you quite as well as  I could."  It was full ten minutes before Donald Murray came back to earth and  the realization tliat No. 3 was four  minutes overdue. Just as he reached  his hand toward the instrument to  communicate with the junction the  door of the outside room creaked, and  a burly form, followed by another and  another, pressed into the waiting room  and jerked down the small gate leading  into the agent's room. Murray did not  wait for a second glance at the intruders. One hand stretched toward  the receiver, the other toward the revolver.  "No messages goes out of this office  tonight, young feller."  For answer Murray's finger sent the  first word over the wire. With an oath  the leader sprang forward, and something cracked with a sickening sound  "i!T~MnTfay's���������right arm. , He turned  white, and the left hand loosened its  grip on the revolver. A burly fist shot  forth, but a small, white one closed  over the weapon first. Miriam stood  beside Murray, the revolver leveled af  the group of men.  "Send It, Donald. I'll shoot tbe flrst  man that moves!"  Her voice trembled, bnt not with  fear.   Murray felt'his brain reeling.  "I don't know what happened," be  murmured thickly,  The meu were edging away.  "Tell him!" cried Miriam. "What  have you done to that train'/"  Down at the junction they caught  tho words nnd wondered why Murray  had such a jerky, uncertain touch.  "No. 3 derailed Jamison arroyo. Hold  No. 9 and send help."  .        .        .        .        m        .        e  Above the mantel in tho Murray  homo thero hangs an out of date revolver. When Master Donald .Murray,  aged six, discovered it and asked  where it camo from his father replied:  "That is your mother's. Sho onco  used it to bring down big game."  "Why can't sho shoot lt now?" per-  ! slated Uio boy.  "Becnuso she doesn't know b������w," was  the answer as Donald Murray. Sr���������  gave n luughlng glanco In his wlfo'a  direction.

The  chief feeling that my appearance inspired I could easily perceive to be  disgust, for they wore firmly persuaded  that the'���������whiteness of the skin -is the  effect of disease and a sign of weakness, and there is not the least doubt  that the white mnn is looked upon by  thom as being greatly inferior lo themselves. One day. after bargaining for  some onions with a country girl, she  told me that if I would tako off my  turban and show her my head she  would give me live more onions. 1 insisted upon having eight, which she  gave me. Whon I removed my turban  she started back at the sight of my  shaven crown, and wben I jocularly  asked hor whether she should like to  havo a husband with such a head she  expressed the greatest surprise and disgust and declared that sbe would rather have the ugliest black slave for a  ���������lUKband."  Why He Wouldn't Sell.  He was the gray haired proprietor  of a country store, "the village emporium," he called it, though it was  weatherboarded and whitewashed and  "hiproofed." Summer sojourners said  they could never find anything there  that they wanted, but the proprietor's  chief pride was that he was quite  "out" of anything. His "method of  keeping up his reputation in this line  as discovered by an importunate sojourner was. to. say the least, original.  It chanced that this sojourner wanted  a pair of hobnails for some impromptu  theatricals and wanted them at once.  Yes, the proprietor of the "village emporium" had a pair of No. S's; but,  after rummaging among various  shelves and boxes: "It's the only pair  o' that size I've got, young man, and  I don't like to get out o' anything  that way. Couldn't ye put off tbe  show tel nest week? I'll be goin' tu  town then and can lay in another pair  or two." Upon being assured that delay was impossible and he could have  double the price of the boots if he  would only part with them, "It's a  temptation." he said, shaking his  bushy head, "but a man must stand  hy his principles, young feller, if be  means to make his mark in the world."

It was a few minutes after 8, and the  drums and brasses of the orchestra  were announcing the finale of the overture. People crowded past him and  streamed far down the sloping aisle,  and all about was the chiller of seats  turned down, the swish of silken skirts  and tho subdued hum that precedes the  rise of the curtain. Then half the  lights in the housa wont out, and tho  orchestra began a curtain cue in a  creepy minor.  ��������� Crompton fished in his pocket for his  check. "H 21, Left, Orchestra Stall."  he read in the dim light He was blissfully ignorant that his check was a  week old and from another theater uptown, while the check ho should have  presented reposed undisturbed in tho  pocket of his overcoat. He strode down  the aisle, where worried looking ushers  were hustling people into their seata  When he reached" "H, Left," he found  21 was tbe end seat, and he sank into  it, thankful for its proximity to tho  aisle.  Scarcely had. he seated himself when  he felt a hand 6n bis arm, and a voice  beside him said:  "I was afraid you wouldn't get my  note, Jack. It was late whon 1 seat it  to the club;"  Crompton, turned and found beside  him a refined, elderly lady with a kindly face. He was about to inform her of  her mistake when she turned to a  young woman on her left.  "Constance, dear," he heard her say,  "Jack has come."  The young woman leaned forward,  and Crompton caught sight of a very  charming face. Her great, dark eyes  looked at him for a moment and then  opened wide with surprise; an angry  flush colored her cheeks, and her mouth  curved scornfully. For a moment she  simply stared at him, while his heart  went-throngh-i3������m^-strangengymoa"sti?sr  .Gladdening: a Humorist.  The financial burden which Mark  Twain carried some years ago weighed  on his mind heavily. In these moments of despondency there was one  tactfnl friend who could make the  humorist forget his troubles. This  was Dan Beard, the artist, who illustrated some of Twain's books.  "Dan Beard, there is no tonic that  can equal the company of a cheerful  man." snid tho humorist as he entered  the artist's studio.  "Ah, but I bavo such a pleasant subject to work upon that I am not tn  need of either man or tonic for my  cheerfulness," retorted the artist  "Beg pardon, it* Is I that noed tho  tonic, and that i������ why I am here,"  snid Twain forlornly.  "Thon allow mo to proscribe a doso  of your own modlclne,"* And Mark  wns bunded a copy of his book which  Board had been studying.  "I thank yon," replied the humorist.  "It took me n yoar to get thut medicine out of my system, and I do not  propose to imbibo lt ngaln."  A cHseussion of the book was followed by n hearty dinner, nnd Twain  left bis friend, having 'received tho  cheer that be neodod.  The Vulf Wfaft* Mnn.

"Thank you. dear," she said. "I can  see it myself now."  Crompton wiped his brow. The teat  had come, and he had passed it creditably. He felt a sense of elation.  Whatever this strange situation meant  he would see it to the- end. The absurdity of the whole affair appealed  to him.   He would play the game out.  It was'evident that the note had not  replied Armstrong at hia club, for,  do-pite Crompton's'qualms in that direction, the original "favorite nephew"  Called to appear.  'r'rnmntnn found himself enjoying,  the unique -adventure wonderfully, i-.ts-  ���������twoen the acts he chatted with Auut  Agatha. He, found good need for'a  ready wit, for that lady had a way of  asking personal questions about hlmsolf and bis trip abroad, which, as he  was totally unacquainted with Mr.  Armstrong, he found quite impossible  to answer. Therefore he parried them.  And once, whon he found himself in a  conversational tangle, Constance came  to the rescue and. deftly extricating  him, turned the talk, to safer subjects.  Why she had not shown hjm up for  an impostor, why she had jgiven him  the cue to his identity aud why she  allowed���������nay, even helped���������bim to poso  as Armstrong was quite beyond his  comprehension.  At 11 he found himself in the carriage driving uptown with thom, Aunt  Agatha still chatting With him and  Constance sitting silently opposite, hor  face giving no hint of what was taking place in ber mind.  The carriage drew up finally before  a comfortable house well uptowu, and  they entered a quiet drawing room,  "I'm quite tired out," Aunt Agatha  said, "so if you'll pardon the. Jack. I'll  leave you to Constance. Dine with us  Wednesday if you can." 7  When Aunt Agatha had left on tho  arm of a maid Crompton- rose and  picked up his hat.  "1 realize It was detestable of tne,"  he said, turning to Constance. He  paused. She stood watching him silently. "I���������I'm very much alone here.  My home is in the west. It savored of  udventure, and���������well, 1 succumbed. I  confess*I found it a diversion���������a very  charming diversion ��������� and more," he  added, looking quickly at her.

I  had been sent to London to look up a  sharper and make him disgorge for the  benefit of thc heirs of another sharper.  Tim wife of one John Saunders, an  Fngllshman who had died in Buffalo  "    several years previously, had put her  clnlnis in the hands of a New York  lawyer. This Saunders had been mixed  up  In  a  big swindle before leaving  England.   Something llko ������20,000 had ,  boon reaped from it, but bis partner in  the transaction had gobbled) on to most ,  of it and.bad.o_ao managed to pull his ]  neck out of the noose, while Saunders j  had beon bunted out of the country.   It ,  waa the claim of one swindler against  another���������-no more, ho less.   Tho lover-  age we had consisted of a number of ,  papers to which both names were attached.   The name of <he living partner was Smallwocd, and it was understood that he had set up as a money  I-puder. These papers criminated Small-  wood ia a sense, but Ic ca*e he was defiant wo could not push the case against  him.  At*oe some  little trouble  1  found  Smallwood aud bis den. He was^bur-  ^   ly, big mnn. with a lord voice and a  domineering way.  In assisting to pep-  SAT TX-.W1.T nwsrnB ME akd felt mv PTJLStt  pot rate that swindle he had bad a narrow occiipe, and ���������'���������fie realized that In a  way ho wjis still under tho surveillance  of tho police, but I put bim down as a  man not tb'. bo. easily frighteued. I  found I was right In this, Whon I  bad "stated rov on-mid, he laughed In  ������>y .face and colled me a fool. Retween  OTinoIvos ho did not deny the swindle.  On the contrary, be boasted of tho slick  way In wblcb It hail been worked. Ho  bad furnished the bralus, and John  Sounders was the oatspaw. Ho had so-  curod i 10,000 of the monoy nnd escaped tho law, while his partner had fled  to a foreign land with tho remnant aud  died among strangers.  "My dear Bir," he said as bo smiled  nnd rooked to and fro, "you were a dolt  to come on any such errand. You bavo  papers, but I would not give you tbo  price of a dinner for tbem. I am solid,  and you onn't disturb me. Go to Soot-  lend Yard, go to tbo attorney, do what  yon will, wad 1 shall only laugh at  you,"  Neither Scotland Yard nor the attorneys oould help me in tho case.

For awhile I was chary of the m������.n,  thinking he might be, In the pay of  Smallwood, but I Anally decided that I  could lose nothing by trusting >Mm.  Smallwood bad once lived In Liverpool  under another name and had been  guilty of a crime for wbich he had to  flee to Brazil and remain for several  years. This man, who gave the name  of Duff, proposed to go down and look  up tlto matter an<l put the police on tbe  scent He was going,to do t'ns ou: of  revenge, but in my case I had no ro-  v-v-ngo to gratify. I thought it might  ii" n trood tbbitar to hold ovor Smallwood  as a bluff, however, and I promised to  reward Duff if anything came of it. lu  the 'courso of a couple of hours I returned to the money lender's olliee. He  greeted me affably aud laughingly said:  "I have heard that you Yankees are a  persistent race, but iu this case you are  simnly wasting yonr shoo leather. I  suppose you have come to make a new  offer r  "I have come about that Liverpool  affair," I replied, and.I went on and  stated the nature of his crime and the  name he used to sail under.  The shot told. The man grew nervous and pale faced, and when I had  concluded he said:  "How you secured your Information  I do not know, but I will franklv admit  that it is partly correct. I have little  fear that the police would meddle with  mevat this late date, but I do not care  to havo tbe affair stirred up. I am willing to make a fair financial arrangement with Saunders' widow."  That was a matter to be talked over  at another meeting. I was a bit surprised that Smallwood should give in  so quickly, but concluded that the Liverpool affair was rather 'serious, and  that like a rnaD of sense ho preferred  to part with a couple of thousand sooner than have it resurrected. He hai?  rooms over his office, and I was +p sup  wltb him on the nest eveifing but one  at 8 o'clock, and the matter of restitution would be arranged. I went to the  piace appointed by Duff to meo+ him,  but he was not thero. I. had given him  my address/but he did not call on me.  As a matter of fact, I never saw him  again. After he had played his part  be vanished.  When I made my third call on Small-  wood, I was cordially received,, and  while waPing for supper to be served  we came to an understanding. He wns  to give me $10,000 for Saunders' wid-  ���������*ow,~nnd"I~was* t(Tgivo~him"a" receipt-in"  full. He grew sociable and Jolly as  the affair -was concluded, aud my glas������  was no sooner empty than he pressed  roe to drink again.

I did not go to the police  officially, but I did tell the story to a  detective on the quiet. How they  would, bave regarded It at S^ot^n-i  Yard may be judged from what Hip  officer said to me. At the end of the  sfory he winked and grinned and observed:  "What a race of natural born Uirs  you Yankees are!"  A Dit o_ Browning Satire.  A medley of young literary men were  once gathered to meet Robert Browning. The most aggressively literary of the  group was first introduced and at once  began to pour out his personal delight  and admiration with so unceasing a  flow that the other introductions were  being held in abeyance, and the other  literary young men starved. Browning  endured it with great good humor for  some time.

The snow  was falling fast but silently. A thick  white covering was over the grass  plot in the doctor's garden, and on  every twig of thc high trees, and on  the window and door-sills, and was  spread like a soft beautiful canopy  over tho roof of the little house.  From beneath it the lighted windows  looked out in such a friendly way. :  -Across-onc-of--them-a~shadow��������� seem���������  ed flitting every now and then behind" thc white curtains.

I  was siQver angry with you, only  grieved. I shiver when I think of  that time when we both imagined wo  were freo and happy and so superior  to other people, and I was really  wearing my heart out. God bo  thanked, it is over now."  Hortense was silent for a time.  "You are right; it seems sometimes  to me now that I must have been  in a terrible feverish drea.m. It is  beautiful to wake from it. But  you, Lucie, you came here in a  healthy state of mind. I poisoned  it. I want to know whether you  can forgive me?"  "Ah, a thousand times, Hortense,  I know* now how to prize my happiness aright. I\est contented about  that." Sho leaned over and kissed  her friend. "Hark!" she cried,  springing up, "there arc sleigh-  bells!"  She hurried out and down the  snow-covered path. A sleigh had  stopped before the golden gate, and  a man in a fur coat sprung out.  "Alfred," she cried, joyously.  "What, my foolish wife!" he answered, in a joyous tone. "1 really  must scold you, though we are only  married three days. You will tak,o .  cold. Come here, you naughty  girl," he continued, and drew tho  slight figure to him, wrapping his  big fur coat around them both, and  so they came slowly up thc walk in  a close embrace���������like lovers in May.  "What has my little wife been doing  in my absence?" he asked, alTection-  ately; "has she been thinking of,  mc?"  "I have had no time to mins you,  I have been making a herring salad  for our guests."  He laughed loud and happily.

The general impression in diplomatic circles is that we are on the  eve oi the greatest war the world  has ever seen. The Jups are intensely patriotic and will fight with  patriotic ardor, while the Russian  soldiers are deemed little better  than serfs. The result of the struggle between the two nations for  supremacy will be jealou.-ly watched by the great powers having more  or less interest in the Far East. It  seems curious that the sympathy of  the civilized nations is extended to  Japan at. the present time. Great  Britain is pledged to assist Japan  against any third power that may  oppose her. Naval circles freely  express the opinion that the Japanese are handling their warships in  a more able manner than the Russians. The Japs are very enthusiastic over theii��������� sui-cei-set*, and are  prepared to right to the finish.  Never have the.Chine-e.been stiried  from their phlegmatic condition  since the Boxer rising, as they are  now, the wildest excitement prevails among them, and their is a  movement on.foot., to aid the .Japs  in Korea.
