CHAPTER IX.  "It is cruel that you should be  deprived of every pleasure because  some one else met a sad fate by-  going to the city. Many a sailor is  lost at sea, but that does not deter  others from breasting the billows.  Your fate would he different from  that of tho poor, pretty girl who  Bleeps under the daisies yonder. But  never mind; some day you will marry,  and ������������������your husband, can take j-rou to  the city. You are so bright, so  vivacious, you would enjoy life  there."  Neva blushed red as; a rose, looking shyly at him from beneath her  dark, curling lashes, but could iind  no words in which to answer him.  Days lengthened into weeks and the  weeks into months. For two months  Oscar Glendenning, had tarried beneath that roof, loath to leave the  little red farm-house half buried beneath the trailing rose-vine and golden-hearted honeysuckles, though he  had been able to use both arm and  ankle long since. And at last it became whispered about among the  farm-hands that -there 'was an attraction at the old farm-house for  the handsome city; chap, and that the  attraction was Neva, Farmer Gray's  pretty daughter.  John Anderson, one of the helpers  on the farm, heard these whispers  with compressed lips and darkening  brow, bending his head still lower  over his, work, but speaking no word.  Neva; was but a little child when  he had come, to work for Farmer  Gray, ten .years before, and he was a  lad of seventeen. For ten years he  had watched her grow in hcaith and  -"boauiy^���������and���������he_Jiad_leai:ned_to_loxe_  her as the apple of his eye. He had  been very frugal, and had laid* by a  goodly little sum 'against a rainy  day."' He had his day-dreams, too,  and they were golden and roseate as  tho flush of a sunny summer morning. His heart was in his work; he  was toiling hard to save enough to  buy the littlo farm across th': way;  and then, perhaps, Neva Gray would  marry him, he often said to himself;  and he whistled away or sung snatches of song over his work, quae as  happy as the day was long.  But from the moment the city chap  crossed the threshold of the old red  farm-house, life had gono wrong with  him. Nova did not como clown any  more to the stile to watch him as ha  drove homo the cows, nor linger in  tho deep meadow grass for a littlo  chat as he wended his way homo from  work through the fields. It was all  different now. The city chap, Glendenning, wus always by hor side', from  early morning until the bright stars  camo out in the sky. .lohn Anderson bent his head lower and lower  over his toil, and Ills lips grow moro  compressed and his nature in on  morose. No one knew of the terrible  Wight that hnd fallen over him, eating nt his heart like a worm at tho  heart of a sturdy tree.  Ho grew to hnti1 Gk'nilonnlng with  a deadly hatred horn of direful jealousy. Ho luited hiH white, soft hands,  handsome faco and line wnys, .and ha  longed for tho tlinu when ho should  go on Iiis way, leaving tho old rod  fnrtn-houso and the treasure it contained lV,r Ivhind h\ui. (hive nwny  from lier, ho, folt qiiilo sum that hn  would soon forget I lie pretty, win-  Bomo faco or lovely Neva Gray. As  for the girl, she might miss him for  ninny u dny, but in time her ,life  would drift buck onco moro into tlio  Muno old chiiiniol in which it hnd run  hi uneventful before I lio hiuiilsonio  utrnnger hnd crossed her path,  Nova's father, too, hnd begun t.o  wonder why tho stranger tarried lie*  nfiith his roof now that ho was per-  Jrrtly able to resume his journey. Tho  farmer's wife grow a tritlo uneasy,  too. She did not liko to nee Neva  ftrolling nbout under tho light of tho  moon with tho fascinating stranger.

"He could have 'laughed outright to see the farmer's honest old  face brighten, strive hard os he could  to repress his delight at this intelligence. ,  "We'll miss you.a heap, Mr. Glendenning. But I allow you'll be glad  to git back 'mong, your friends," he  said.  "I shall leave behind nve the plea?  santest friends I have ever known,"  Glendenning said,  gallantly.  "I reckon everybody hereabouts')!  be powerful sorry to see you. go,"  said the farmer, pulling vigorously  at his pipe.  For a little while silence fell between them, and Glendenning took  his hat and strolled out into the  grounds. Down by the gate Ney<������>  was waiting for him, as he knew she  would be.  "I have been here an hour,! Mr*  Glendenning," slio said, pouting a  little. "T���������I���������almost: thought you  had forgotten me."  "Mister!" he repeated, reproachfully. "Why so, formal on this day,  above all others, *\cva? You pain  me; and as to forgetting you, am 1  not about to prove to you to-day  that it will be impossible for me ever  to forget you, in this world or the  next?"  The little hand on the gate crept  'confidingly into his. Her pretty head  drooped, and she looked up at him  shyly with her dark, bright eyes.  "I am going to make you my wife  to-day, Neva," he said, with dignity.  "That is proof positive that I cun  never forget you."  "It seems a little hard not to say  aiid artless "waf of phrasing them  captivated him completely, and he  often said to himself that had he  met her years before life would have  been different with him. He was in  deadly fear lest she should ever find  out what his past life had been, or  of the crime that hung even then,  like a dark, formidable cloud, over  his guilty head. He would never  have thought of asking her to link  her bright young life with his, had  not the tears sprung to her lovely  dark eyes and hor lip quivered when  he told her he was going away, and  had brought her out under the apple-trees to say good-bye to her  alone. She turned her head away,  and he saw her lovely face grow  pale. He stood leaning against the  trunk =of a tree and watched her.  "Will    you  bo    sorry  when  I  gone'P'j he asked, slowly.  It never  occurred  to  her    to  swer anything but the simple truth.  "The old farm-house will never be  the same to ine again," she answered, faintly.  NOTED FORGER RELEASED.  SANITARY MILK.

It was William Barmash, the man  who was concerned in the most sensational forgery of Bank of England  notes of recent times. He has just  been released, after having served only  a third of the sentence of ten years'  penal servitude passed upon him in  December, 1902. He was the youngest,  and certainly not the most blameworthy, of the forgers; and his liberty  has been given him, to use his own  words, "So that I may make a fresh  start in life, and devote my energies  to a more honest and less hazardous  calling.  Barmash was transferred from Park-  hurst to Pentonville prison after serv-  ! ing three years and three months, and  "Did my present brighten your life, ', then released to rejoin   his   wife   and  Neva?" he asked huskily. /children.

Still leaning against the tree, he  asked, slowly:  "Do you care for me, Neva?"  She looked up at him with startled eyes, then huried her face in her  little, trembling hands, and her dark  bead nodded in the affirmative.

One  man can cleanse the udders for .nine  or ten milkers if the cows are conveniently situated. In 'toy early work I  had each milker go over his row of  cows and cleanse them before cleaning  himself up. But 1 soon discovered, as  the cows wero put from the other stables into this certified milk stable, that  there was very soon a shrinkage in  the milk, and it worried me. I did not  know what to think. My first thought  was that the cows had been injured by  the tuberculin test. Finally I evolved  this idea���������that manipulation of the udder in the cleansing stimulated the secretion of milk, a������d to get the best results you must follow that right up  and relieve the cow of her milk at  once or else there is a reaction that  makes trouble. That solved the whole  question,  s Clean Milking.  Then we discarded the first few.  streams of milk from each cow. It  has not much value anyway; there i������  not much fat in it. We milk through  an absorbent cotton strainer applied to  the top of the pail. This is regular  Burgeon's cotton. It is placed between,  two layers of gauze and put over the  top of the pail and fastened there. The  pail is emptied through a covered  spout, so the pail is not opened; only  the spout is opened when the milk of  each cow is weighed. From the barn  this milk Is carried in cans to the milk  house, and there it is put through a  centrifugal separator.  That  "Animal   Odor."

Ploughed Up Old Coin,    ,  WilHam White ploughed up an old  Spanish silver coin of Charles III.,  dated 1787, on his farm In the Township  of Matilda. "THe~date colncldes^wTtH"  that of the first settlement of the district by U. E. Loyalists from Mohawk  Valley. The coin is in a good state of  preservation, about the size,, of a 50-  cent piece and is one of the last issued  by Charles UL  How It Prevailed Among Early People* In the Southwest.  Springs are rarely found ln the southwestern part of the United States, and  for this reason they have been from  ancient times prized as a most valued  possession. The people who dwelt ln  this region, says Walter Hough ln  "Becords of the Past," saw in these  sources of life giving water the founts  of continuance and well being, and  near them they located their pueblos.  Save air, no elements of naturo are  nearer to human life than those combined into the primitive fluid which  must always be within reach of men  who put themselves into the grasp of  the desert The primary knowledge of  the tribes who were the pioneers and  of every human being who has since  made his home in the great American  desert was complete aa to the location,  distribution and idosyncrasies of the  water supply.  Spring water is naturally more prized  by the Inhabitants of those desert solitudes than that from living streams,  because it Is always drinkable and always at hand, while the watercourses,  which for the greater part of the year  are sinuous reaches of dry sand, furnish  at flood a quickly disappearing supply  of thinned mud which will not be touched by man or beast except,in the distress of thirst.  One ls not surprised, therefore, that  a primitive people will regard these  springs as sacred. In fact, the Indians  of the southwest are not peculiar in the  worship of springs. The sentiment is  worldwide, has bad a vast range of  time, perpetuates Itself ln the folklore  of the highest civilizations and presents  ln its manifestations a most interesting  body of myth and fancy. But ln the  southwest the arid environment has so  intensified this feature of primitive culture that no spring in the region is  without evidence of many offerings to  the deities of water.  It ia small wonder then that the Pueblo Indians came to regard springs  with special veneration; that they wove  around them myth and tradition and  made them objects of religious worship.

There Is a common Idea that fowls  can only be maintained iu health where  there is a large grass run, but this is  quite a mistake, says the American  Poultry Advocate. A few hens confined in a small yard if fed properly  aud kept clean will lay more freely  than those that have an unlimited  range, and, usually being in more sheltered quarters, they are more likely to  lay in the winter than farm poultry. It  is not an expensive business to wire  off a corner of the back garden and put  up a small house. A wooden house for  half a, dozen fowls need cost but very  little, and wire for the run is very  cheap. The house must have ventilation provided at the top above the level  of tbe perch. An old box with a little  well broken straw in it will do for a  nest The floor of the house can be  made of earth beaten bard and level.  A sprinkling of dry ashes under the  perch will enable the droppings to be  removed with a trowel In a few seconds. A portion of the wire run should  if possible be covered so as to afford  protection from tbe rain, and under  this should be placed a good sized box  of dry sand or sifted earth. In this the  fowls will clean themselves, a great  essential, conducing- immensely to  their health.  The feeding of the hens is a very  simple matter. There must be a warm  breakfast of meal given as soon after  the birds are off the perch as can be  managed. This meal should be cotnj-  posed of middlings and barley meal in  equal parts mixed into a stiff paste  with hot water. Any scraps of meat,  etc., from the house can be added and  stirred in with it. At noon some cut  grass, cahbagc leaves or other green  food must be given and before the  birds go to roost some grain, such as  wheat Poultry mixtures of various  grains are not good; neither is corn,  except a handful or two in the way of  a treat It is most important that the  fowls should only have as much at  each feeding as they will eat greedily;  none must be left over. In cold or veryl  wet weather a little pepper may be  idded to the' meal. There must always  ���������be plenty of fresh water for drinking.  Salt For Fowl*.  It Is a prevalent notion that salt Its  poisonous to fowls, and this popular  Impression Is based on many unhappy  experiences with it when fed too liberally. Of course, salt is poisonous If  fed largely; but, on the other hand, it  ls beneficial when fed In moderate  amounts���������that is, at the rate, say, of a  half ounce to 100 adult fowls per day.  It is true that a great many fowls have  been,killed by eating salt and by having their food mixed with the water  ln which salt meat bad been boiled.  Tbe careless throwing out of rock salt  which the birds eat under the iniprts-  sion that they are eating grit, Is the  most usual way of killing fowls with  salt���������Western Poultry Journal.

On a certain fateful day I was tn

whose nicknanw./'waa "Sonex," nvintr
to hia old-faahioned. appraranco, whon,
on passing the entrance to cloisters.
wo noticed that the door leading to the
clock tower was hatf-opeh. Without a
moment's hesitation wo crept inside,
and found ourselves facing an Iron
Bptral staircase. It was very dark in
tho tower, the only light coming through
llttlo slits In tho wall. Taking our
courage, howovor, In both hands, we
began to cMmh the stairs, and aa we
got higher and higher, so the noise of
the mig-hty ticking of the clock Increased , and lured ua to our' fate, till
finally we found nm-eh'os in a sort of
room,' where all the works wero exposed to our eaper eyAs. For the first
few minutes we were too awed to mow,
$>ut by decrees we gained confidence
and began to touch'various .parts of tho
mechanism. "S^nex" was particularly
busy In this respect, and finally pulled
6 weird kind of lever. Suddenly, without a moment's warning, the clock
_trv��fc! Ye gods, what a noise it. made
in tho alienee of that little room! . It"

The time was about eleven, and tho
schoolyard was full of boys waiting to
go before thoir respective mastors. At
first we wero not. greatly perturbed,
but wlren we had counted thirteen or,
fourteen stroltes, uncontrollable panic
seized ns hot h, and wo be,gan tumbling
dbwn the nta'rs as hard as we could,
pwrsuod'.hy th'? sound of the mad clang-
fti-g of the'outniged clock. And what
���added to our terror was .tho " sight,
through tho silts in the masonry, of
some two or throe hundred boys and
mantrrn gazing up at tho clock tower

For ten years past, remarks The London Standard, it has been the practice  of those directly interested in the highest developments of yacht racing in  British waters to refer to the seasons  in which the famous old Britannia led  the racing fleet round the coasts as typifying the high-water mark of the  sport in Britain. There is little doubt  that the magnificent sport enjoyed during these seasons owed much to the direct interest and participation of tha  then Prince of Wales, and there have  been those who held stubbornly to tho  opinion that the same keen, interest  and enthusiasm would never be reached  again unless the King returned to his  first love among the sports, and enrolled himself again among the racing  owners.  Whether the revival initiated so successfully this season by Mr. R. M.  Young of the Nyria and Mr. Myles B.  Kennedy of the White Heather, would  have developed far enough in another  season to have falsified this opinion  remains an open question. In the  meantime, the universal feeling in  yacht racing circles is one of absolute  satisfaction that the matter has been  put beyond doubt by the decision of  His Majesty to hoist racing colors  again to the truck of a first-class cutter.  This decision���������or, rather, the negotiations which preceded it���������gave rise  to a variety of rumors, mainly conflicting,1 and wholly premature, and  the result is that those who 'have followed the matter with the closest interest are most -mystified as to the  exact position in which the matter  now stands. It may now be stated that,  although the negotiations have not  reached the point at which the proposal to build becomes an actual contract, they have advanced so far as  to put it beyond all reasonable doubt  that there will be a new "royal cutter  in the class which will lead the racing  fleet through the regattas of next year.  In the lifetime of the late Mr. Geo. L.  Watson, the most eminent of British  yacht designers, he was the authority  to whom the King turned for expert  advice on all matters pertaining to  yachting, and the cutter Britannia,  which he designed for the King when  Prince of Wales, was easily the most  consistently successful racer ever built  in the first class. ; Oh the dea*th of Mr.  Watson, the business passed���������under the  .pEo.vJsi'Ons-of.-.hisasy,ll-==to--M.n,.X.J}..^Bar=_  nett, his chief draughtsman and assistant. It is with the same firm, therefore, Messrs. Geo. L.. Watson & Co.,  that His Majesty has been in negotiation for the building of the new racer,  and whether the new craft repeats all  the success of her predecessor or not,  there are circumstances which will  mark her an epoch-making vessel.  The keenest desire of the framers of  the new International rule of rating  was that the change might do something for the encouragement of International sport among the ��������� yachting  countries of Europe, and the fact that  the first Important racer to be built  under that rule will be -for the use of  King Edward gives the best reason  for believing that this hope will be fulfilled. In the sketch plans which have  been made the definitions of the framers of the new rule find definite expression,  Britannia II., unless some great and  unexpected alteration Is mado ln the  plans, will conform to the latest fashion  in the building of racers by avoiding  altogether the extremes which began to  creep ln when designers were a llttlo  hard pressed to find a means of checking the victorious career of tho previous Britannia, On the measurements  suggested she will rate so closely to the  rating of the first-class cutters, Nyrla  and Whllo Heather, that tho measurement allowances duo betwion them will  bo of a vory trilling description.  This goes with tho spirit of tho new  rules; but even moro vu.lua.blo support  to their provisions is the fact that tho  new  vessel   will   be   of   exactly   the ���������  staunch  and  useful  typo  which  it is,  specially desired  to cultivate.     There i  will bo nothing of the "freak,"   or   of*  Uio extreme racing machine in the do- ���������  SIKH. I  The Under Side of Fish.  Experiments bave been made with  flounders in order to determine whether  the whiteness of tbe under sides of  those fish is duo to the exclusion of  light, and tbe presence of color on tbeir  upper sides to exposure to light. The  iish experimented upon were kept living in a glass tank, having a mirror  placed beneath, so as to reflect light  upon the under sides of the fish. One  of these prisoners survived for three  years under conditions so strangely different from its ordinary habits of life,  and all of tbem exhibited tbe development of spots of pigment on their lower  surfaces. The experimenters concluded that it is exposure to light that  causes the coloration of the upper  parts of ihe bodies, not only of flounders, but of other fish, aiid, conversely,  that it is to the comparative absence  of light that the whiteness of under  sides of fish is due. They extend the  same principle to explain the colorless  condition of the skins of many animals  that pass all their lives in caves..  eeding Piles  ntirely Cured  WEien Doctor's Treatment   and  Surgeon's  Knife Failed Cure Was Effected by  Dr.   Chase's   Ointment.  Bird  Songrn.  Naturalists have long been puzzled  as to how birds learn to sing. Does it  come natural to a : bird of a' certain  species to siug tbe song common to its  kind or does it learn to imitate whatever song it most hears during tbe  early days of its life? Experiments  made by a well known student of bird  life proved that most birds simply learn  by imitation. He placed young linnets  to be reared by skylarks, woodlarks,  titlarks and other breeds,'and in every  ease the linnet learned the song of his  foster parents. Again, a number of linnets were reared where they had no  chance of bearing the song of any  bird at all. In due course they began  to sing,, but their song was entirely  original. Tbe cuckoo, however, seems  to be an exception, for although it is  almost invariably reared by foster  parents of any species but its own,  it always slugs to perfection its own  peculiar' song, quite uninfluenced by  the vocal efforts of its guardians.  Origin  of the  Strike  Fund.  The earliest mention of a strike fund  occurred in the strike of the Parisian  stocking weavers in 1724, when a.  crown a day was subscribed for every  striker and all blacklegs were merci-  -lessly-boycottedr-But-the-biggest-strike-  tinder the "ancient regime" was that  of the silk factory hands at Lyons  in 1744, Ayhen 12,000 men went on  strike and so alarmed the mayor that  he conceded everything they asked and  wrote to his brother that he had "la  tete cassee par cette vile canaille."  The "vile canaille," however, had had  their moment, and it was no longer  theirs. Two months later the king  sent down 20,000 soldiers "pour re-  mettre 1'ordre daus lu bounevllle do  Lyon," nnd we hear no more of strikes  till the supreme strike of 1789.  It is now universally conceded that  Dr. Chase's Ointment is the most effective treatment obtainable for ovory form of piles.  For the benefit of persons who are  accustomed to look upon bleeding piles  as incurable oxcept by surgical operation we quote the letter of a young  school teacher, who, after frightful  experience undergoing an operation  which failed, was cured positively by  Dr. Chase's Ointment.  This statement, was given by Mr.  Lepine with the idea of helping others  who have not yet been so fortunate  as to hoar of Dr. Chase's Ointment.  Mr. Arthur Lepine, school teacher,  Granite Hill, Muskoka, Ont., writes:  ���������"I am taking tlie liberty of informing you that for t;yo years I suffered  from bleeding piles, and lost elnch day  ������** ���������"I*; V  '  ^ -^Jji : I  about half a cup of blood, Last summer I wont to tho Ottawa Goneral  Hospital to be operated on, and was  under the influence of chloroform for  one hour. For about two months 1  was better, but my old trouble returned, and again I lost much blood.  One of my doctors told mo I would  have to undergo an operation, but I  would not consent.  "My father, proprietor of the Rich-  lieu ftotel, Ottawa, advised me to use  Dr. Chase's Ointment, and two boxes  cured me. I did not lose any blood  after beginning., this''treatment, and I  have every reason to believe that the  cure is a permanent one. I gratefully recommend Dr. Chase's Ointment  as the best treatment in the, world for  hlee;ling piles."

"You/see; gentlemen,"'said the counsel forj^he defendant complacently���������it  was a 'compensation case���������"I have got  the plaintiff into a very nice dilemma.  If he went there seeing that the place  was darigerous, there was contributory  negligence, and, as his /lordship will tell  you, he can't recover. If he did not see  it -was dangerous, neither could my  client have seen it, and there was no  negligence on his part. In either case  I am entitled to your verdict." The  jury retired. "Well, gentlemen," said  the foreman, "I think we must give him  ������300." All agreed except a stout, ruddy gentleman in the corner, who cried  hoarsely, "Give him another ������50, gem-  men, for getting into the dilemma!"  Verdict accordingly.���������London Graphic.

George listened patiently to the harangue and at Its close remarked: "Well,  boys, I don't think the C. P.

Nothing more was said about tho hotel."  The Vancouver Province chronicled  the other yarn:  "President Roosevelt, according to  the statement of Mr. George Ham, will  make a tour of Canada as soon as Jds  present torm has expired, and will visit  Vancouver.

How far away the banks of the Nile  aeemed to us as school children! When  the teacher recounted the Interesting  etory of the infant Moses; his having  been cast upon the waters; his rescue  by Pharaoh's daughter, it all seemed a  delightful fairy tale concerning a far,  nebulous land apd few expected to  stand upon the actual spot where tradition says the great Deliverer was rescued. Nor did many of us then contemplate, that we would ever behold the  mysterious pyramids or look Into the silent tombs of those mighty Kings who  ruled Egypt when the Holy Family fled  there for safety and shelter., These  ecenes so absorbing to our youthful  fancies, connected as they were so intimately with our religious teaching,  seemed so remote and inaccessible that  fow ventured to obtain even more than  a general Idea of the story, without  thought of , ever visiting the .actual  (scenes of this wonderful drama.  In those days the world seemed very  large and Egypt a distant land. There  was no cable then, no ocean greyhound,  no seventy-mlle-an-hour train, writes  Charles T. Long in The Toronto Globe.

Modern Alexandria, with two hundred  and fifty thousand Inhabitants, Is the  chief commercial centre of northern  Africa and rivals Constantinople as a  cosmopolitan city. It prosent little of  tho aspect of tho purely Egyptian.

Leaving this familiar scene. It is only  necessary to cross the Central Square  to plunge Immediately into the native  district, where Europe is left a thousand years behind, and where the whole  aspect of things changes as though by  magic. Here the streets are narrow.  The houses are very high, the top stories built out so as to meet and form  an arch, through which the sun and  heat may not penetrate. The crowds  swarm like bees about a hive. The  workmen operate the same style of  tools as those found in the tombs of  the ancients at Luxor. Here may be  seen artisans producing swords, brass,  silver and gold work, mosaics, beaded  and silk ware, Jewellery, rugs and a  hundred other precious and Curious  mings, reproductions 01 me wonuera  the Queen of Sheba laid at the feet ol  Solomon.

Then  every face turns to'Mecca, every head  bows in worship, and ever heart pours  out its loh'ejrigs regardless of the inquisitive stare or scoffing remark of the  passing foreigner. During this period a  'solemn hush falls upon these busy  marts, to give place ten minutes later  to renewed and more vigorous, efforts  to drown rival voices. The merchants  in the native shops, which are from  eight to fifteen feet square, are surrounded by workmen engaged in manufacturing the article exposed for sale.  Each merchant confines his business to  a particular article or articles of a particular line, such as jewellery, glassware, shoes, silks, etc., and strives to  arrive as near perfection in workmanship as possible in his own specialty.  The~resulWs-of-CQurse,,a_much_giga:t  DUDES OF OTHER TIMES.  Areas of a Dandy of the Early Nineteenth Centnry.  A cure for the confirmed railer  against modern dress might be a course  of inspection through a file of old  fashion magazines or the perusal of  such accounts as are given by the  author of "Sketches of Lynn." The  description is tbat of a suit worn in  the first part of the nineteenth century.  The boots were an important article  of dress. The'toes were made as broad  as the ball of the foot, with tho corners well rounded, giving the shoe tbe  resemblance to the snout of a shovel  nosed shark. They were very snug and  required strong straps. In order to get  Into a fashionable pair the heel of the  stocking was well soaped and some  pulverized soap sprinkled Into the boot.  The length of time it took to get oue  on depended on the strength of the  owner and the strap. I  The stylish overcoat displayed five  capes, one above the other. The trou- ���������  sers were expected to fit as tight as the  skin. Just how they were put on is a  mystery. The coat was especially snug *  under the sleeves, and the velvet collar  scraped up the back of the head. The  camlet overcoats after a little wear,  became as stiff as birch bark.  The thing worn about the neck was  called a stock. This name was appropriate In its suggestion of an instrument of punishment. The stock was  from three to six inches high, and was  made stiff. A man was forced to look  straight ahead. Only by careful management could he see a little on either  side. About halfway between his eyes  and ears two little points of collar  stuck mp like toothpicks.  Ruffled bosoms aud wristbands fin- i  ished the costume, with the addition of  a tall silk hat. When inclosed in this  manner, with a dash of attar of roses  on his handkerchief,' the man of the  period was considered irresistible.  TOO HUMBUE A HUSBAND.  Position    of   Prince    Albert,   Royal  Contort of Queen Victoria.  A woman looked up with a laugh  from a heavy volume she was reading.  "Now I know," she said, "why Queen  Victoria was so fond of the prince consort.   This husband did not merely re-  er variety of design, the development  of more individuality and skill than is  to be found under the English or American "trust" system.  The middle,and laboring class Egyptian appears to be a kind, courteous,  intelligent fellow, who says he appreciates the freedom and liberty he enjoys under British rule, Notwithstanding the fact of the climate being so  warm all classes of Egyptians seem to  be great workers, the amusements being left to the foreign element.  Like Freedom, Dislike Liberators.  After I had been ln the country sev;  eral months and had become acquainted with some of the native gentry, I  was surprised to learn that while one  and all admitted the many benefits of  British rule, there was a strong undercurrent against the English, the reasons for which I shall reserve for a future letter.  Whllo Egypt affords exceptional advantages as to health, comfort, sport  and education It Is not a country for a  person of moderate means, It Is a  country where European necessities are  very expensive, while the natives aro  able to live comfortably on half what  It would cost ln America. The magnificent hotels aro only open five months  ln the year, and must therefore charge  high prices to enable thom to pay dividends on the great capital Invested. Tho  cost of railway travel Is about tho same  as ln France, or about twice as cxpen ���������  slve as ln Canada, though the Bervlce,  meals, sleepers, etc., are much more  comfortable than ln cither of those  countries. Cairo ls perhaps as expensive  a city to visit as Monte Carlo yet the  fashion, beauty and wealth of Europe.  Asia and America congregati) here, ami  certainly evory luxury, comfort and  amusement Is provided by those clever  people whoso business It la to separate  tbe wealthy foreigner from his money.  In Hgypt ono never hears the re-  mark, "It ls a fine day," for tho reason  that overy day Is lino and no one need  take the subject into calculation when  arranging a trip to one or other of tho  many beautiful environs.

Net a  Single  Professed  Anarchist In  the Good CHy���������The Queen  City Leader.  Toronto cannot boast of having the  same number of Socialist workers as  Montreal, says The Montreal Standard.  In the latter city they are both numerous and aggressive. In the former  they are less conspicuous and more  conservative In'carrying on their propaganda, for let it nnt be forgotten that  Toronto has not yot had a May Da/  celebration.  But If the Queen City cannot boast  ef having' a Socialist movement a3  strong and as active as that of Montreal, it can lay claim to possessing a  great number of intelligent Socialists,  who do not rave and tear their hair in  the revolutionary fashion, but seek to  make converts through the means of  argument and illustration rather than  the wholesale condemnation of everything capitalistic.  Members of Trade Unions.  The majority of Toronto English-  speaking Socialists are nearly all members of their respective trade unions.  Their advocacy of their doctrines Is  not confined to converting individual  trade unionists to their way of political reasoning, but they also have mass  meetings and seek to teach the toiler  the "facts" of their cult. What distinguishes Socialist propaganda In Toronto from that of Montreal is that  while the followers of the red flag ln  Montreal are nearly all foreigners more  than 50 per cent, of Toronto Socialists  are all British subjects, including tho  recognized leader of the movement.  There are at present threo groups,  the nationality of them being English,  Finnish and Jewish, with an Italian  local in the course of formation. All  told, they number some four hundred.  Movement Started Five Years Ago.  The movement is not very old, having -been started some Ave years ago  by a number of Canadians, and was at  the highest point of its progress when  it could boast of having a newspaper  to.get forth its views. Since that time  lt has not made great progress, but  Its followers never lose an opportunity  of making capital out of and exposing  the tactics of their opponents.

That they'believe In his slncer.  ity is evidenced by the fact that he  'has been, for the first time in the history of Ontario, il not in Canada, elected a sohool trustee on the Socialist  ticket, receiving over 6,000 votes. ��������� In  addition he is vice-president of the  Dominion Trades Congress, as well as  president ot the Toronto Typographical Union, which recently elected him  delegate to the Victoria Convontlon of  that body, which, if tho views of his  supporters meet with the approval of  the majority of the delegates, will eleot  him president.
