A low cry of terror broke from the  girl's lips, but he continued, gaspingly: "I have named you my heiress,  Helena,  upon  the condition you  A violent spasm choked further utterance, and. the squire fell back upon the- pillow, a bright stream of  blood issuing from his purple foam-  flecked lips.  Helena sprung forward with a  shrill, piercing scream. The bright  warm life-blood spurted over the  bosom of her fleecy dress, her white  hands and upon her flowing curls,  but she did not heed it.  "God��������� bless ���������you���������my���������only���������  child," he wailed.  "Oh, Squire Cameronf" cried the  girl, in an agony of remorse. "Listen to me one moment! Can you  hear me? Oh, sir, I can not rob  poor Frederick of his inheettance, or  your wife of hers. I will not accept  your money."  The sweet young voice, so pitiful  with grieving remorse, went on  quickly���������"I have done you a terrible wrong, sir; strike me down at  your feet if you will���������but I must  confess the dark secret that is wearing my very heart out. Listen,  Squire Cameron, I am not your long-  lost daughter, Ollie. You have been  cruelly deceived���������"  She stopped short in her terrible  excitement, expecting to hear a  groan or a cry break from his lips,  but no cry came. Was his anger so  intense he dared not trust himself,to  speak? She raised her curly head as  a condemned man raises hia eyes - to  his executioner at the last dread moment.  But Ihere was no gleam of anger  in the glazed ej-'es that met hers.  No  consciousness in  the__white. sert_  i/4ffM^**WAwWMm*Wm  or tne crime l"    "***"  " face.  Her terrible confession had fallen  upon deaf ears.  He would never pass judgment upon her; never know that he had willed his wealth to a stranger.  Squire Cameron was dead, with the  ,will tightly clutched in his fast stiffening fingers!  Ono glance at that white, set face,  and Helena know the truth.  Snatching tlie paper from his hand,  with a low, sbuddoring cry she  thrust it into the bosom of her  dress, and with a wild scream dashed pantingly from the room, and directly into the arms of tho doctor.  lioaring that tho squire had retired to his room fooling unwell, he  was on his way towards Iiis apartments, when ho onco un tor od Helena  dashing in affright through tho corridor covered with blood.  "What is tho matter? Stop!" called tlio doctor, as tho girl dashed past  him, wild with terror.  Faster and faster flow the slippered feot straight through tho groen  arch, and into tho crowded ballroom, with tho doctor in close pursuit.

Helena raised her lovoly dark eyes  to her accuser's face with a low gasp  of unutterable horror, then she looked appealingly around at the awe-  stricken guests. Oh, God! would they  believe it?  In an instant Frederick Castleton  waa beside the girl he loved with  such a mad, passionate love.  "It is false!" he cried, clasping  Helena's little, cold, trembling hand  in his. "I would stake my very life  upon her innocence. One would as  soon think of accusing an angel from  heaven."  "And I would stake my, life upon  her innocence," cried Hen wick, huskily.  Dr. Thayer, who had been bending  over the squire's form, turns upon  them angrily.  "Who is it that makes such  strange accusations?" he says, impatiently.  "I do!" responded Vivian, trembling with excitement.  Dr. Thayer shakes his head gravely ������ "That is a woman's flrst thought  in a case like this���������murder or font  play. Mrs. Cameron is too excited  to be held accountable for what she  has said. I beg of you, Miss Helena, pay no heed to what she has  said. The squire has burst a blood  vessel, which caused instant death -���������  yet a perfectly natural one," he .concluded,  briefly.

"I forgive her," she*.says,,, gently,  as she puts the blonde hair back  from Vivian's white face, "Her  troublo came upon her so suddenly;  she was frantic with horror, and, as  the doctor says, 'we must not hold  her accountable for what she has  said.' "  "You are an angel, Miss Cameron,  to 'forgive lier so readily," whispered  Henwick, as ho bowed for an instant  over Helena's little white hand, then  quitted tho room.  In the excitement no one had noticed that Helona stooped down and  regained tho will Vivian had snatched from hor hand, and which had  slipped unheeded to tho floor.  A blank shoot of crumbled noto-  papor lay besido it. and���������as this,  too, by a strange coincidence, was  torn at tho corner���������ovory ono believed, as tho doctor did, who picked it  up and laid it upon the tabic���������that  it was this Mrs, Cameron had taken  from Holona's hands,  All that night Holona paced up and  clown hor room in a fovor of excito-  mont..  "Oh, Heaven! what shall I do?"  sho cried, bringing forth tho fatal  will from its hlding-plaeo, and gazing at It llko ono stunned, Tho voice  of conscionco answered: "11 o away at  onco."

"i'oor Frederick!" wuraiired    tbt  girl, sTozGuiy. "i: -i surnea  this," she told herself, "Frederick  woidd have his own, for I should  never contest it���������never!"  The great struggle of her life   had  come.    Could she give up wealth and  luxury���������going back into poverty ;���������  for      love's    sake-���������she     who   loved  , wealth and magnificence so well?  Ah! how mighty was the love that  led her to stretch tlio will out iu  her white hands over tho gas-jot, and  set her beautiful crimson lips together resolutely, murmuring: "It is  all for my love's sake," as she saw  the ring of smoke curl up from the  burning parchment, and a bright red  flame burst forth.  Was there a hot' breath on her  white shoulder or was it only fancy?  Was there a voice hissing in her ear  or was it delusion?  Before she could turn her head a  white jeweled hand dashed the paper  from her and Mrs. Caineron, with  flaming eyes and anger-distorted  face, stood pantingly before her.  "Ha!" she cried, in a voice quivering with passion, "I knew you  were up to some treachery, I knew  it, and hero is tho proof of it. I will  arouse the household. The wholo  world ������ shall know that you have  been tracked down in tlie very act  of burning Gilbert Cameron's will."  The dark, velvety eyes raised to  hers gazed fearlessly into her own.  Helena threw her dark head backward with a queen-like gesture.  "Hush!" she said, sternly, "I will  not allow you to say such words to  me, Mrs. Cameron! I admit that I  burned the will; it is useless to deny  it, with those charred fragments lying on the floor at your feet. Was it  so great a crime," she asked, simply, "the burning of a will?"  "A crime!" Vivian repeated. "The  person who could even ask such a  question must be dead to all sense of  honor and shame. The iron hand of  the law could grasp you for it and  thrust, you into prison for burning a  dead man's sacred will."  "I did not know," answered Helena, vaguely. "I never once thought  of that. Could 1������ really be put into  prison for it, Vivian?"  "Yes, if those whom you have defrauded chose to prosecute you," replied Vivian, and she wondered at  the soft, sweet light that came over  the white stillness of Helena's beautiful, dimpled face.  "I see," returned the girl, slowly,  "I understand now. Look at fhe  will, Vivian,_'^^o^xcla^-^_^J-3mn!  Ty~"Everything ~ was Teft unconditionally to me, and I burned it tnat  the money might go to you and  Frederick Castleton, as a former will  directed, which was made before I���������  I same hero,"  For an instant Vivian Cameron  was fairly eloctrilicd; the room seemed whirling around her and tho lights  to darken.  "Groat Heaven!" sho muttered, gathering up tho charred fragments;  what if Helena's words were true?  Had her husband, whom she had  married for sordid gold, cut her oil  without a penny save iho paltry  dower?  "Examine the proofs for yourself,"  said Helona, calmly, and with trembling fingers and "an-ashen faco Vivian gathered tho fragments in her  jewelod hands and spread thom upon  tho table, and then she know tho  truth,  All Baltimore was shocked when  tho squiro's will was road a fow days  later. No provision was mado for  his beautiful daughter Holona. lflv-  erything ho possessed was equally divided by tho deceased millionaire's  bequest botwoon his young wifo  Vivian and his nophow, Frederick  Castloton.  Truo, it was duly drawn up boforo  his daughter had rotumod to Camor-  on Hall; but if ev later ono had boon  mado ho had evidently destroyed it,  for nono othor was found.  Y*ot Holona still remained at Cameron Hall, and socloty lookod on in  pity at tho bountiful outcast who  found aholtor bouoath hor stup-moth-  or's roof, Yot, strange to say, of  lato Vivian had sooinud to bo growing quito fond of Holona, Eow was  tlio world to know of tho dark bo~  crot botwoon thoso two, and that in  hoiLt't Vivian hatod the fair young  girl to whom she owed such a debt  of gratitude.  On tho aftornoon tho will was  road Fredorick Castloton sont,up his  card to Holona with tho urgont request that she would not refuse hlxn  nn interview.  A fow mouioiitfl later sho entered  tho rocoptlon.rooin with a hesitating  stop.

"Won't you como into tho conservatory?" ho asked, rather confusedly. "I huvo HuuicUiing to���������.to way  to you."  Un fnnoiorl thnt tlio beautiful perfumed blossom a might teach him in  what words to toll hor what wns In  his heart-���������of the great, passionate  lovo that wns oatlng his lifo away.  Whut was all the money In tho world  onnvpnrrxl to what tho !<">ss of hor  lovo would have bean to, bim?   H$  put the thought rrolm him  as they walked together  through the brilliant blooms.  Ah, would that they could  walk through life together!" Squire  Cameron's will gave him an excellent opportunity to declare his love  and refuse the wealth bestowed so  unjustly upon him.  He found her a seat where the golden sunshine fell the brig-htest, and  sat down beside her with all of a  lover's bashful hesitancy. Neither  of them saw a woman's dress  through tho green foliage, or saw a  white, anguished faco, framed in  golden hair, peering at them through  the branches of the palms.  CHAPTElt XH  For a moment a deep silence fell  between them. It was strange tliat  they did not hear the stifled breathing of the woman separated from  them only by the foliage of the palms  ���������strange that they did not hear the  wild throbbing of her heatt.  It was Vivian, and she stood as if  rooted to the spot, gazing at them  with dead-white faco and gleaming  eyes, as she listened to every syllable that fell from his lips.  ��������� "Helena," he was saying, tenderly, "do you know what I brought  you here to tell you? Do you know  what I wish to say to you?-but my  courage half fails me."    c  Helena raised her bright, dark eyes  to his handsome face with a startled  glance. Had he found her out, and  did he bring her there to denounce  her? Her beautiful face grew pale,  and she trembled with fright. The  flowers she held dropped unheeded to  her feet, as she raised her eyes to his  like a frightened school-girl.  Frederick Castleton stooped and  gathered one of the roses, pressing it  fervently to his lips, and smiled a  little at her confusion. He half sat,  half knelt at her feet, talcing the fingers that had dropped the roses in his  firm, strong clasp.  "I brought you here, Helena, to  tell you that I can never accept one  penny which belongs to you, and you  alone; and I shall sign it back to  you this very day unless���������"  Helena interrupted him with a cry  of dismay.  "Oh, no, no, no, Mr. Castleton,"  she cried, tremulously, "you must  not do it! I have no right to it, I  will never accept it���������never!"  Frederick looked up curiously Into  |-the���������beaut-ifulT-girlishT���������agitated���������facer  "You are Gilbert Cameron's daughter���������I am only his nephew," he said,  quietly, thinking her too young and  inexperienced to understand matters  of that kind thoroughly, yet amused  at her generosity.  "I could never accept it," declared  Helena, vehemently; "give it to charitable  institutions."  "And leave my beautiful cousin an  outcast, without a dollar of her own,  dependent upon Vivian Cameron's charity and pity? Ah, no,  I am well off in this  world's goods, and I can not accept the inheritance my undo loft mo  unloss your lovo goes with it, my  darling!" he cried, tremulously, as  he extended his arms to hor yearningly. "Do you understand mo, Helena?" ho whispered, his hnndsomo  faco fairly glowing with his great  J������w-������    for her;  "I want vou for   piy  wifo, darling, for I lovo you, and  without you lifo would not bo worth  living. Say that you caro for mo a  little in return, sweet ono!" ho crltd,  earnestly, drawing tho trembling figure closer in his embrace. "Look up  into my oyes, Helena, and toll mo  Uiat ray lovo hns not boon given in  vain!"  Deforo Holona could answer lilm  tlio loaves of tho palm tree parted  suddenly, and Vivian camo hurriedly upon the sceno, warning thom a  moment In advance by tho rustlo of  her silicon skirts, giving Frederick  Just tlmo to drop the llttlo whito  band ho was kissing so pnsslonntoly  and tako a stop or two backward,  Vivian effected pretty surpriso as  sbo saw tho two standing togothor  by tlio splashing fountain.  "Ah, horo you nro, Holona!" Bho  cried. "I havo boen looking tho  houso and grounds ovor for you, If  Mt, Castloton will klifdly oxcuso you  for a fow momonts 1 shall bo glatl of  your assistance ln my boudoir, a  littlo whllo, dear."  Frederick could only bow, but In  his heart ho was bitterly chagrined  at Vivian's Inopportune appearance,  Hut lvo managed to whisper, as ho  bowod low ovor'Holona's hand;  "I will come to-morrow for my tin*  Bwor, Ro kind to mo, thon, my  darling, and whon I louve you I will  bo tlio happiest mun in tho world if  you toll me that my dearest hopo Is  to bo roallisod,"  Helena tried to answer him, but  tho    words diod away on hor llpo,  twill   (tt.    tout   o....nuc.il.

Anil ho smtlod to  himself ns ho remembered tho Jealous  pangs that bad shot through his  heart with tho four that sho would  look kindly upon Herbert Homvlck,  his desperate rival. "How groundless woro nil my fours," ho rumJmit-  otl, "lor ll lovo, tender, soulful and  nweot, over shono out ot girlish oyos,  it Rhone out of Holona's ns thev  woro rnisoil ior ono blissful momont  to mine, nt tho momont Vivian camo  upon us!"  And, whistling n gay retrain of  song, he walked rapidly from tho conservatory; and ns ho reached the  por^h ho mot Horhort Tlonwlok an-  courting tho broad marblo steps.  Only a slight bow passed'between  these two who had been such devoted friends.  It was but a trifling matter Vivian  had brought Helena to her boudoir  to discuss, still it had served the  purpose she had in view of separating Helena and Frederick Castleton  ere she could breathe an answer to  the ardent avowal that had sprung  to his lips.  "She WUI give an answer to-morrow," Vivian determined. "I will  bear him his answer, and it.will not  be a pleasant one, I fancy."  For hows Vivian paced her elegant  boudoir plotting and planning, while  ln her own room Helena sat by tho  open window, her flushed face buried  in the crimson roses that nodded  against tho casement.  "He loves me," she murmured, in  a stifled, frightened voice, "but I���������  I���������daro not love him! I, who am  only a poor sewing girl, and Who  have stolen into a dead girl's home  and fortune! An imposter���������shivering with dread when I am brought  face to face wiUi strangers lest the  consequences of my tolly will fall upon my head tlien and there. I must  not link his proud, honorable life  with mine���������and, yet, how can I give  him up? I can not give up my love.  When he discovers the truth I can  die!"  To-morrow she would give Frederick his answer, and that answer  would be���������yes. She dared not think  of the future; she would live only in  the present. She had gone too fur  to draw back now.  And as she looked out over the  green hills, another face rose up before her; the face of one whom she  had quite forgotten, and' a voice  seemed to whisper through the soft  wind that swayed the trees; "Never  be false to me, Helena, for if you  were T should kill myself, and perhaps both of us; for the pain of losing one wo love is a thousand times  worse than death!"  "Mark wjll never find me now,"  sho whispered, "he has ceased to  search for me long since. Poor honest Mark!" she sighed, and for the  first time in her life she realized  what Mark must have suffered by the  loss of his love.  What if Frederick Castleton should  prove as false to her as she had been  to poor Mark.        p  When she was once Frederick Cas-  tletori's wife she would persuade him  to go abroad, where there* would be  -no-possible���������cha:nce���������ofngvt3r~m'eetiTT*g'"  Mark. For not only would he bitterly upbraid her, but he would denounce her before the world as an  impostor; and prove to her horrified  lover that she was Helena Heath-  clilT, a penniless outcast, and not Ollie Cameron.  That evening Frederick Castloton  and Herbert Ronwick met at Cameron  Hall, by Vivian's express invitation,  and again cool bows wero exchanged  between them.  "Ho is determined that I shall  havo no chanco of winning lovely  Helena," thought Herbert, his brows  darkening ominously, "but I shall  outwit him," ho muttered, "by asking Helena to be mine this very  evening."  It would haye boon amusing if it  had not led to a tragedy, watching  tho two handsome rivals, each so  eager to gain a smilo or a word  from Helena's lips.  Vivian at onco tried to ongross  Fredorick Castloton, who was most  unwilling to bo .engrossed boeaiiso he  desired to talk to Holona, and , it  lookod vory much as though It was  quito understood botwoon Herbert  Honwick and his fair hostess that he  should devote himself to Holona,  "You havo never heard*Mr. Ronwick sing, havo you, Holona?" asked  Vivian, suddonly.

The quickest way to get away from  the counter is to work hard, be polite  and obliging at the counter. The  trouble with people who complain that  they cannot get above the positions  they are in is that they can not see  that the step to the* thing above them  is in the thing they are doing, in their  manner of doing it, that the opportunity for advancement is in the promptness, the thoroughness, the efficiency  they show in the positions they now  occupy.  Of two clerks working side by side  in a store, one knows that the best  part of his salary is not found in his  pay envelope, but In the ooportunity  to learn the business, to extract from  it the secrets which his employer may  have paid a fortune for, besides putting his life into it. He is all eyes,  all ears, all the time thinking of bet-  . termethods, Improved ways of doing  things, and he finally becomes a proprietor himself. The other sees nothing in his life but drudgery and a  perpetual clerkship.  If you have a hundred acres of land  and only four people to support, as one  correspondent states that he has, If  you have enough brain, ambition, determination, and grit, you can not only  support the people depending on you,  but you can also give yourself a good  education,���������for you can buy all the  hooks you need,��������� and if you are a  good manager, if you have system.  ybu can have all the leisure you require for study.  If you are. made of.the stuff that  wins nobody can keep you back, for if  you do not find your chance where  you are, you will find i't somewhere  else. But remember that your achievement cannot rise higher than your  resolution. So long as you think you  are tied down so that you can not  move, you will never get up or get on.  The man who acknowledges that he  is a" "perpetual jClerk" will never become manager or proprietor of anything until he changes his conviction.  Hia own lack of confidence and push,  not circumstances, is the chain which  binds him.  It is as natural that we should obtain the thing we long for with all  our hearts, and persistently work to  "^htainT'a������^th'at~a~stone-should���������come  to the earth when hurled into the air.  The ambition; the desire, the longing,  the hunger, the struggle toward the  aim, these are the forces of gravitation which bring us the desired result.  r.o.B.������fw* G^RiAkllN! h������������. im  Canadian Co-operative Company, Ltd.

I'm sorry for the woman whose standards, social or physical, do not permit her to handle a hoe. It seems to  me as graceful an instrument as a  golf club. An hour's exercise along a  tidy garden row will produce the finest kind of a glow, and, withal, you  get so much more done with a hoe!  It is but a poor spirited person who  will "putter with flowers" but dare  not work in the vegetable garden for  fear that some one may think she has  to do it. If the neighbors are scandalized because I turn the baby loose in  the shade on the grass and push the  wheel hoe instead of the perambulator  it is their lookout. Perhaps, now, they  are dying to dig and have not quite  dared for fear of my scathing criticism! Let them know the worst. I  purpose to dig, to rake, to sow, to  weed, to hoe, and to harvest, for the  sake of what I get out of it in mental  growth, flowers, exercise, aesthetic uplift, and vegetables. I shall take my  turn, too, with the bicycle, the tennis  racket, and the golf clubs; but next  to the go-cart the wheel hoe is my  favorite vehicle!  St. Joseph Lewis, July 14, 1903.  MESSRS. C. G.

Her-?; are some facts and figures relative to a hen's egg which may not be  withovit interest to the student of poultry possibilities. Its average length is  two and twentyseven hundredths inches, its average diameter at the broad  end one and seventy-two hundredths  inches, and it weighs about one-eighth  of a pound. The pullets are smaller  than those of old hens. The shell constitute* about 11 per cent., the yolk  32 per cent, and the white 57 per cent,  of the total egg. Chemically speaking,  an egg consists of two nutrients���������protein and fat���������together with some water and a small quantity of mineral  matter. Popular belief to the contrary, there is no difference in the  nutritive Qualities of eggs with dark  shells and those witb light. Their  flavor 1b affected by the food ot the  fowl, for good or for evil. Exhaustive  experiments by well equipped investigators proves that the egg deserves  its reputation as an easily assimilated  and highly nutritious food, if eaten  raw or lightly cooked. Such experiments also show that eggs ".at twelve  cents per dozen are a cheap source  of nutrients; at sixteen cents somewhat expensive, and at twenty-five  cents and over, highly extravagant.  The basis of comparison was the market price of standard flesh foods considered in relation to their nutritive  elements. But there is a physiological constituent of eggs which is of  great value, yet it defies the search of  the scientist or the inquisition of the  statistician, and that is there palata-  bility. Unless a, food, however rich in  proteins, is relished, it loses much of  its value, while, per contra, a less  chemically desirable food that is enjoyed becomes valuable by reason of  that fact.

CHASE'S OINTMENT  Especially during the teething period, children are subject to Eczema,  scald head and various forms of skin  disease, which cause the keenest suffering to themselves, as well as anxiety to their parents.  There is no treatment so successful  as Dr. Chase's Ointment, and as eczema always tends to become chronic  and last for years, prompt cure ia ot  the utmost importance.  Mr. C. Wiley, who is employed as  cooper by the Kennedy & Davis Milling Company, Lindsay, Ont., states:  "I used Dr. Chase's Ointment for eczema on my little girl some few years  ago, and soon brought "about a thorough and permanent cure. She had  suffered for considerable.. time, Dr.  Chase's Ointmeut was the only preparation io prove effective. I cannot  speak too highly of Dr. Chase's Oinl  ment as it certainly effected a prompt  and permanent cure in this case."  Mrs. F.    Clarke,   Belmont, Man.,  writes:���������"My baby had eczema on her  ear. The sore was very bad and nothing seemed to do her much good.  Hearing of the remarkable cure Dr.  Chase's Ointment was making we  sent for some and after the third application the sore began to heal. I  am glad to Bay that it is quite well  uow and we give the credit to Dr.  Chase's Ointment' We cannot recommend this preparation too highly."  Any mother who once becomes acquainted with , the merits of Dr.  Chase's Ointment would not think of  being without it in the house. Where  there is a baby or small children it is  of daily value as a means of curing  skin irritations and eruptions, chafing  and all sorts of burns and sores.

Finally she blurted out that she had  lost it, but she did not seem anxious to  go back after it. The car kept going  all the ^time, .and when she did not  show any anxiety I knew that she was  bent on beating her fare across town.  I told her that if she did not pay her  fare I would be compelled to put her  off the car. She looked at me, smiled  and replied: "You wouldn't put me  off the car for the sake of five cents,  would you?"' "By this time we had arrived at Lenox avenue, and there she  got off.

MEN ARE fN THE MAJORITY IN  THE UNITED STATES.  (From "Success Magazine."-  Taking it "by and large," the male  sex is ins the majority in our country  by some l,fi-8v-21,'according to a recent census bulletin. In some of the  states, however, the women exceed the  men in number, notably in the district  of Columbia, Massachusetts and  Rhode Island!. Usually men are in excess in sparsely settled communities  and women in thickly populated regions; cities, for example, as a rule,  have more females than males. In the  later years of life, the women exceed  the men, which seems to indicate that  they are longer Ifv-ed. In the period of  sixteen to twenty-five years of age,  also, the report shows them to be in  excess.  One.of the greatest blessings to  parents is Mother Graves' Worm Exterminator.

Wood, in Farmer*'  Tribune,  Travel From England to South Africa  In a Nine-Ton Boat.  The two venturesome seamen,  Messrs. Napper and Langford, who left  Brighton last August in a nine-ton  ketch to seek fortune in the South  Australian pearl fishery, have found-  so far plenty of adventures, if very  few pearls.  A letter has recently been received  in London from Capt. Napper, who  says that on their arrival at Cape  Town, where they were met with an  enthusiastic reception, they were approached with a view to working some  pearling beds in South Africa. The  offer was accepted, and they were then  on their way. The voyage from Brighton was accomplished In 105 sailing  days, a notable performance, considering that the rudder was lost during  a storm, and that the two men had  to rely upon the sails for steering.  "Soon after leaving St. Vincent,"  writes Capt. Napper, "we discovered a  stowaway concealed under some old  sails in the after cockpit; a little woolly-headed Antonio, a native of the islands, who could not speak English,  but gave us to understand he wished  to Join us. So we made him cook and  steward.  "On October 27, five miles south of  ���������the Island of Brava, we saw a large  whale in deadly combat with a sword-  fish and two sharks. In its agony it  came straight for our little ship, but  when about fifty yards off it expired.  "The saddest event of the whole voyage happened shortly after this. 'Nelson," the dog, my faithful old comrade, rushed from one end of the vessel to the other, barking loudly, foam  flying from his mouth (not for the  want of food or drink, for I always  saw he had plenty of bot\i). My mate  -got-his_ gun, out. to__shoot, for I had  not the heart to kill my old friend,  hut we were both saved, the pain of  so doing, for rushing to the stern of  the vessel, the dog deliberately jumped  overboard and swam away. I at once  brought the boat up to the wind���������  there was a heavy sea running���������thinking the immersion would perhaps  bring him to his senses again, but he  only swam away from the ship, and  darkness coming on we lost sight of  him forever."  Describing a terrific storm during  the night of December 8 in the South  Atlantic Capt. Napper says: "The little Brighton, her mast lowered back  and ollbaga out, rides to,her sea-anchor, mounting the high billows like a  bird, and never shipping a drop of  water, but our' feelings can bo better  imagined than described, for tho motion of our llttlo ship could only be  compared with a motor car looping  the loop, and every bono in my body  seemed to work with the motion of the  boat. During the storm we lost tho  rudder,  "On December 1!) a largo whale followed our llttlo ship for two hours,  evidently taking us for a younger  member of his family. Ho would swim  under our bottom and come up the  other side, blowing as he camo to the  surface, sending tho water ovor the  docks; but after a few shots from  our guns he thought it better to leave  our company,  Sad Story of British Columbia Druggist, Who Was Suspected Unjustly.  A few months ago Mrs, T. H. Atkinson of Ymir, British Columbia, committed suicide, after having been socially ostracized; her husband had  just stepped from the dock at the Assize Court at Nelson a free man, pronounced by the jurge to be without a  stain on his character. Mrs. Atkinson  died because of ill-natured gossip; to  Atkinson irrevocable ruin and misery  have come from the same cause.  Atkinson's drug store at Ymir was  burned down somo months ago, and he  was arrested on a charge of arson, an  accusation which was shown to have  had not the shadow of foundation.  But lt caused one of the most painful  tragedies in the history of British Columbia. Some evil-minded persons  whispered that the druggist had fired  his place for the sake of the Insurance, and the police arrested him. At  once Mrs. Atkinson was made to suffer also. At the time she most needed  comfort sho was deserted by her own  sex in the mining town, the women of  Ymir practically sending her to Coventry. This social indignity, added to  her other troubles, served to throw  her mind off its balance, and she  drowned herself in the reservoir.  The tragedy of his wife's death, added to the baseless charge preferred  against him, made life almost unendurable to the unhappy drugglBt. How-  over, Atkinson kept up the courage of  "despair and was arraigned at the Assizes at Nelson. The Crown presented its witnesses, but the evidence was  so shallow that the case gave signs  of breaking down at a very early stage.  When the Crown's meagre evidence  was all In, counsel for the prisoner  said he would place his client in the  box. But there was no need for that  action. Peremptorily stopping the proceedings, the foreman of the jury told  the judge that if the evidence before  them was all the prosecution could  bring, the Jurymen felt that the accused had no need to put in any defence;  they were certain of his innocence.  In order that the last lingering doubt  might be removed from everybody's  mind, Atkinson was, however, allowed  to go into the box and tell his own  story, showing that he had no knowledge of how the fire broke out. This  done, his counsel declined to address  the Jury, and the latter, without leaving the box, brought in a verdict of  acquittal.

Death br Lottery,  Among other complications of Chinese law and its execution is a unique  and rather racy method of dealing with  prisoners by lottery.

One of those rare Instances of one  woman's kindness to another Was seen  on a Yonge street car last night as  the conductor wae taking up the fares,  says The Toronto World. By the way,  he was a youngish-looking young man,  and his actions denoted that he had  but lately taken to the handling of the  coffee-pot collection box.  On the long seat of the closed car  sat a well-dressed young woman, apparently an English emigrant, taking  in the new sights.    In taking up the  fares the conductor passed the fare-  box under her noee, which brought her  back to the material and the innovation  of a new custom. Sh* sni^ssed what  it meant and asked him the price of  the fare, while she produced her pocket-  book. She then handed the man what  appeared to be a golden half-sovereign.  Handing it to the conductor, she said:  "I 'aveh't anything smaller."  ' In the mind of the young official a  vein of thought of his "Id schooldays  passed in his trying to reckon what  the value of the mon������y was, He gave  it up and told the lady that as far  as he knew the company did not receive foreign money. For a moment  the young woman's Up quivered, She  was alone in a strange country, she  did not know tho customs of the people, she might be put off the car. The  breach was happily closed by an elderly woman, dressed in black, paying  tho poor girl's foro, Turning to her  tho assisted ono ventured: "'Eaven  thank you, ma'am.
