Tho Cumberland Hall was crowded upon the occasion of the Premiers meeting herej and out_ide of a  few senseless interruptions, to which  little attention was paid, the utmost  decorum prevailed.   Mr J. B. Ben'  net, the Liberal   Candidate, -being  invited   to   addr'ees- the   meoting,  made a   most creditable  showing  for his maiden effort, and  was remarkably cool   and   oollected,   in  view of the fact that he was facing  the moat formidable   opponent   to  his party in B.C.

At the same time,P1  spiking of   an interview be" had  just had with tbe Mayor and Couri-  jiU-JieJiiUy^ma^  peculiar situation of the Cumberland School, and promised to take  the matter up as soon   as  he   got  back to Viotoria.

Bettor terms had beon made a political cry by the Liberals, not the  Tories, and the more   they howled  it out, from tho housetops and   at  the street corners, the mote he was  pleased, it was advertising the record he had mode,     Kaien island  noxt received the Hon Gentleman's  attention.

KIDNEY DISEASE  ON THE INCREASE  But Prevention and Oure Are   Readily  Obtained by the Use of  DR, CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVISi PILLS.  AN EXCITING TRIP.  Recent reports of the New York  Hoard of Health prove that the mortality from kidney disease is greatly  ou tho increase.  ���������13right',? disease as well as the other dreadfully'painful forms of kidney  disease enn usually be prevented nnd  cured by giving some attention to  the diet and to the activity of the  liver and kidneys.  Excesses iii eating and thc use of  alcoholic drinks must be avoided,  and the filtering organs can best be  kept'in good working order by the  use of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Livor  Pills.  The derangements which lead to  Bright's disease usually have their  beginning in a torpid liver and tliere  is suffering from headaches, biliousness and indigestion before the kidneys fail and such symptoms appear  as backache, ���������peanty, high-colored  urine,' painful,/ .chiding urination,  deposits in urine, etc.  Mr. James ;J". Jerjson, Olds, Alta...  writes.-���������"J liave be&ft-troubled considerably with lame back, which I  suppose_ came from derangements of  the kidneys, and I have never been  able to find a treatment that was so  prompt and effective in curing this  ailment, as Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver  Pills. At two different, times in my  life this preparation has entirely  cured me of this trouble, and of "late  years .1 have found it unnecessary to  use any medicine whatever. I feel  it my duty to add this statement to  the many others* which I see in recommendation of this excellent medicine."-  Mrs. J. C. Johnston, Carman,  Man., writes:���������"I have been a great  sufferer from kidney trouble and  have used Dr. Chase's Kidney-J-iver  1 ills with very marked benefit. I  cannot say too much for this medicine as it seemed to be the only  treatment that suited, my case."      .x  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills  suceed where ordinary kidney medicines fail, because of their direct  and combined action on the liver  and kidneys. This has beery proven  in thousands of cases of seritpus and  complicated diseases of the kidneys.

One of .the most astounding and at  ��������� the same time heartrending cases of  the many -which passed through The  Montreal Star's Information^ Bureau,  ���������was that ot a woman who wanted a  tew dollars more than her husband  ���������had allowed her 'for clothing for her  daughter's flrst communion.  ���������Caught   by   the   alluring   circulars  ,:*-. which had been freely sent abroad by  inail and hand  delivery,  she went to  the office of onefof the worst of the  ���������usurers, and bojp&wed ten dollars. She  .,Was told that. .���������gjliie would have to get  '-the  signature: of her  husband  to the-  note; and she replied that she did not  want, her husband, to know anything"  ���������abo.utit.i " "7        '" .',  ������������������'���������-Thr-crafty-manager-of��������� t-he������firnu.ra-i_!  plied that there was no necessity for  her to let her husband know, apy thing *  -about lt, but to simply sign his name  tn a "kind of a back hand" andi.tkari;  eign her own name.    He told, her he,  would leave her alone for a few minutes, and a man would then-come Jn.  and ask her If she had seen her hus-.  band sign the note.   She fought to get  out of the act and Its attendant disgrace, -but the man assured her that.  to just answer yes to a question was  not Itke taking an oath.  She fell into the trap and \vhen the  usurer's tool had left the'room she  forged her husband's name} and then,  wrote her own.  Here ave her own words: "When ths  'Other man came Into the room I stood  "with my face to the floor, because..I  knew what I  had  done.

No bird is so easily netted as the  lark; he generally starts from the  ground just before the lower edge of  tho net touches him and invariably  mounts perpendicularly. This characteristic propensity to ascend at onco  may he observed by any person who  "treads up" a lark in a field and satisfactorily illustrated by releasing, at the  same momont, a newly captured lark  and a sparrow tyom a cage or hat  within the precincts of a room. While  the sparrow will fly off horizontally,  dash himself against-the window aud  lie almost stunned from the shock, the  lark will almost always mount upward to the ceiling and flutter there  for a time in vain efforts to reach  the sky before, he attempts any other  ���������mode-of-exit:JlbtJthis,hablt is fatal to  him in the netting season. He would  generally he able to escape, as indeed  tho bunting or clod bird, the sparrow  iind the linnet constantly do, by flying  straight forward; but ascending, as he  does, directly from the 'ground the moment his wings have touched the upper  part ,of the net it is suffered to drop  suddenly, and his capture is rendered  Inevitable.���������London Standard.

Getting on a sand bar is a part of the  Yukon program me, and we reached  this act early in the afternoon of the  first day. The river is constantly  changing, and a new channel is made  each year. All steamers carry huge  poles, known as shears,'"'or sometimes  called "ships' legs." When a sand bar  ls struck the pole is dropped off the  side and stands upright in the sand.  A pulley is attached at the top, the  engine is started and the boat lifted  and swung forward six or eight feet.  This process ls repeated until tho ves-  Bel is clear of the bar. During the  Jumping off process the passengers ar*  sent aft in ordor to lift tho bow. When  somebody stupidly asked the captain  how long we were going to stay at  this point he answered, "Anywhere  from an hour to a week." We were  lucky iu being fast for only two hours.  The Selkirk, which followed a day  later, spent the entire night on the  same obstruction. Soundings were taken with a gaudily painted pole, which  ���������uggested a Fourth of July pole vaulting  exhibition. The man who did the measuring had a singsong Way of speaking,  and he constantly drawled, "Two feet  ���������two aud a half-three feet���������no bottom���������four feet," until we were in deep  Water.  Late in the afternoon we reached  Lake La Barge. Here the ice was from  ten to eighteen inches thick and spread  from shore to shore like a great field  of snow. We pushed on, while the  sharp ice pounded savagely against the  hull, which was built of iach and a half  planks. It scraped and cut the side3  of the boat and buckled, and formed  little ice mountains over the lake. We  ran slower and slower until, after cutting through five miles, the captain decided that, we could go no farther in  safety, so the Casca tied up at an uninhabited island to wait until the sun  and Mind should cause the ice to break.  The mosquitoes welcomed us and came  aboard by the thousand. Some of the  passengers rushed ashore and built a  huge fire out of old logs in order to  protect themselves from the pests; others climbed to the top of a hi'l and sat  ln a row like so many owls. All day  -Sunday-we~waited^Ilie_cr-aw���������carriedj  logs aboard and built an ice plow for  the boat. After twenty-four hours' delay we cast off and went into tbe ice.  The river Is tortuous and muddy, and  ln many places the current runs nine  miles an hour. Narrow gorges are entered, and at" Five Finger rapids we  were treated to the sensation of running the rapids between rocks scarcely  twice the width of our boat apart. This  placo is considered extremely dangerous, and boats coming up the river, in  order to avoid being dashed against  the rocks, pick up a cable fastened on  shore for that purpose and by winding  lt around the capstan pull themselves  up tUo. rapids.���������Mrs. 0.

Color  Troubles   of  the  Color  Blind  Poet, Whlttier.  It Is well known that the poe������ Whit-  tier was color blind and unable to distinguish red from green. He once  bought for himself a necktie which he  supposed to be of a modest and suitable olive tint and wore it once. He  never wore it. again, for his friends  soon made him aware that it offended  against the traditional quietness of  costume enjoined alike by the habits  of the Friends and by his own taste.  The tie was of flaming scarlet.  On another occasion, when he found  a little girrin distress on account of  a new gown, made over from her elder  slster-s.--wliieh-w,a9���������not becoming to^  her coloring and complexion, he tried  to console her.  "I wouldn't mind what a rude boy  says about it, Mary," he said, kindly.  "Thee looks very well Indeed In it,  like an oread, Mary, dressed all in  green."  Unfortunately, Mary was not dressed  In green. She was red haired, and her  dress was red.   That was the trouble.  Once, on a day In mid-March, when  out walking with a Friend and deeply  engaged In conversation, Mr. Whlttier  approached too near for safety to;' a  place where blasting was going, on.  The danger signal was shown, but  neither Friend noticed it until a workman, violently waving his arms and  shouting, leaped before them and  warned them back.  "I didn't seo the flag at all," said  Mr. Whlttler's companion.  "I saw It," rejoined tho poht, with  a twinkle In his eye, "but I thought lt  was In honor of St. Patrick. Thee  knows my defect.

But, better than that, she  is a very,������sweet girl, and her little sisters, Madge and Katharine  and baby Elizabeth, love her dearly.  Almost every clay, when they are tired  of playing, they rush to Gertrude and  beg her, please, to read them a story.  So Gertrude takes Andersen's Fairy  Tales or Swiss Family Robinson or some  other lovely story book and they run  out to the garden and sit under the  trees.  And Gertrude reads so well that it is  just delightful to listen to her  Now, let's see how well you little boys  and girls can color this picture of Ger  trude and her little sisters.  Get out your paint boxes, and do your  best. Madge, who is sitting on the camp  stool, has dark brown hair and eyes;  Katharine, on the footstool, has light  brown hair, and baby Elizabeth has  golden hair and blue eyes. Gertrude's  hair is between dark and light brown,  and her eyes are hazel.  The footstool -Is red, the wicker chair  is green and the cushion back of Gertrude is white with pink polka dots and  pink ruffle.  Gertrude's hair ribbon Is pink and  her dress is pink, while the little girls  all have white dresses, stockings and  shoes on.  *  The Experiments of  Tom Tit  HERE are a couple of experiments  which  I know you  will enjoy,  ���������boys-and-girls: ; "TT"  The flrst is an experiment with  air, and a curious,one to onlookers.  Take a carafe or a large bottle with a  fairly wide neck and, holding it horizontally, lay a cork inside the neck.  Then say to some friend, "I defy you to  blow that cork inside the bottle so that  it will stay there."  "Pooh!" he will cry, "that's easy  enough," and he will be cocksure that  he can do it. But to his astonishment  he will find that no matter how hard he  puffs at that cork, the moment he  ceases to blow it will bob straight back  to where it came from���������the neck of the  bottle.  "Well,  I declare!"   your   astonished  \r  friend will ejaculate, "how do you explain that?   is thc cork bewitched?"  Thc explanation is simple enough,  after' nil. The bottle Is full of air, of  course, you understand. Well, whon yuu  blow your breath hard against the cork,  you cause a sudden compression tit' tho  air that is inside the bottlo nnil when  you cease your blowing, this' compressed  air immediately expands to its former  volume, thus pushing tlio cerk back In  4tB original place in the neck of the bot-  m.    *Btai" Traveling ^o&ct,,-.

They were the bane of his life, and  bothered him of nights by scampering  over his bed. They ransacked his  pantry and built their nests in his  cupboard. As he smoked and planned  for their death, he could hear faint  squeaKs from their snug hou.-es and  stuffy corners under the sacks of dour.  No doubt they were commenting upon  the appearance and also planning in  their way to do live times as much damage as formerly.  It was easy to see that Hans Snuff had  lived in the mill all his life, for it  seemed as if either he had grown much  like the mill, or else lt had patterned  after his appearance. Hans was short  and squat, so was the mill; Hans wore  an old ccat, yellow in color and whitened  by the flour; the mill was of the same  dingy yellow white. In but one thing did  they differ���������Hans hated the rats of the  mill with a flue hate; the mill seemed  to love them ln its dry, musty corners  and floors, protecting them from all his  efforts beyond traps.  But with traps Hans had quite a  reputation, and when the rats were  caught he would speedily introduce them  to Tom, a large cat, with gray and  white stripes. ,  From the loft Hans could see across  country to where the dike spread, all  yellow in the sunshine; beyond it the,  sea. Hans nodded once or twice, but  the thought of the rats never left his  mind. He had just about settled the  fate of every whiskered fellow in the  country, when a very funny thing happened. The sun ran across the sky and  plunged downward into the sea, the  dike seemed to dance a jig, and Tom,  the cat, in the window,. rew smaller and  smaller, until he at last disappeared.  The sails of the mill stopped, and the  little red-roofed house on the hill turned  into a tree.  "Surely," said Hans, "surely something strange has come to this part of  the country."  Then he glanced downward toward the  grinding stones, and there���������there sat the  largest gray rat he had ever seen. It  was an old fellow, with whiskers nearly  six inches long, and a tail that seemed  to be broken in one or two places. One  of his eyes was gone, and an ear consisted simply of ribbons, and hung limp.  He had a very funny cap on his head,  too, something Hans had never seen on  a rat's head before. Hans was so astonished that a rat should come out on  his millstone and brave him that his  pipe fell to the floor and smashed t-  little bits.  "That is the very rat," said Hans  himself,   "that  I  threw  the  stove IM  after three days ago." /  The old fellow stuck his head on  one side, so as to better view Hahs  with the good eye, and stroked his  whiskers in a most comical fashion.  "Hans Snuff, Hans fc'nuff, you're a  bad man!" squeaked the rat.  "Only to rats," mumbled Hans.  "Well, I am the king of the rats,"  -said-the-old~fello'wr-proudlyr-������and--I-ve-  come to have a talk with you, Hans  Snuff, and tell you what I think of your  ways. You threw a stove lid at me the  other day, Plans Snuff, and I have only  to thank that cast in your right eye that  the rats are not holding.a convention  over a new king, lt was a heavy stove  lid, Hans Snuff, and.had It hit me fair  I would.have been a very sick rat. You  should be ashamed of yourself, Hans  Snuff!"  "I'll never do it again," said Hans.  "You'd better not. Don't yuu see how  your mill is stopped and the sun run  down? We've managed all that because  of the stove lid. You are getting above  yourself, Hans Snuff; you're a naughty  boy."  Hans gasped.  "Boy! Why, I'm an old man, I'm���������"  "You're not near so old as the King  of the Rats. I knew your great-grandfather, Hans Snuff; and. by--, the way,  you've broken his fine yellow pipe. He  Was a much better man than you, Hans  Snuff, and I fall to remember any stove  lids of his."  The rat moved Into a more comfortable  attitude, thon continued:  "Now, you see, Hans Snuff, the rats  are tired of your ways, and all those  terrible traps and snares must go. Look  at this foot, all chewed up by a trap,  and look at my back, seriously strained  by jumping out of the track of your  stovelid." '  "But," said Hans, "you'll'eat me out  of house and home."  "That's just what I want to talk  about, Hans Snuff. The rats held a meeting last night over your bedroom���������"  "That's why I couldn't sleep," interrupted Hans,  '���������And all made speeches, including  Lord Whiskers and myself. Then they  voted that, I should come and talk to  you. We want you to part with all the  traps and ihat terrible creature you call  Tom. If you promise this, every day at  the hour of 12 the stones will grind out  a handful of gold coins instead of  flour���������"  "And if I don't," argued Hans.  "Then 10,000 rats will gnaw and gnaw  and gnaw .ill the mill falls about your  ears.   If that don't fix you, we 11 get the  gold coins for rat traps, the grinding  stones will grind out rats���������live rats���������  and you'll neverbe free of them.''.  With this, the old fellow put his cap  oh sideways and limped away. At tho  same time Tom, on the window ledge,  gave himself a great stretch, as all'cats  do.  "Why, I've been asleep," said Hans,  and he' laughed. "As ..' all the rats In  the country could make me���������"  A great clatter ��������� rose in the darkest  corner of the mill, and. going there,  Hans found It came from his largest  and best trap. Tin e in she trap was  the old, gray-whiskered, lame King of  Rats!  Hans rubbed his eyes and looked  again, There was the king, und no mistake! *'"*.  "Now, I've got you," s.-tid Hans. Then  he thougnt of the promise he had made,  and even though it was only in a dream  he was afraid tn i.ivak It, a'id, besides,  he could not help a faint thought, that  I  300 tribes of Holland rats, Including tho  pink-eyed rats, the gray-striped rats  and the Norway rats, and burrow  through the dike and let tho greedy sea  in on you." ,  The old fellow's single eye blazed, and  h.'s tnll shook a warning.  Hans trembled,  "I'll do it," ho suid. Thm from aU  sides enme a shrill squeak of applause.  "Then I'll bid you good-day, Hans  Snuff; but mind, if you over spend the  the king might fulfil his promise to  grind out gold coins every day at 12. So  he released the old king, who limped  slowly to the nearest hole arid out of  sight. ��������� ������������������- ..   ,������������������������-   ,  Hans Snuff now rides to church In a  gorgeous coach nnd owns a yellow plpo  far better than tho one left him by his  grandfather. ....

A "throwing stick," "throwing  board" or "spear thrower," as It Is  Bometimcs callo*. Is a Contrivance for  castlii;^ a Javi>i:Por h-.iriwon, which ls  employed by various.* savage races,  tsuch as the Australians, some South  Arnercan tribes and especially by the  Eskimos, among whom its use Is almost universal. Roughly speaking, it  Is a narrow grooved board a foot or so  long, with one end cut Into a handle  and the other provided with a stud or  Bpur for the butt of the spear to rest  against It is Used thus: Grasping the  handle as he would a sword, the man  fits the shaft oT the spear into the  groove, with the butt resting against  the stud, steadying the spear with the  finger. Then, extending his arm and  bending back his hand till the spear  lies horizontal, he aims at the mark  and propels the weapon by a quick  forward jerk of the slick.

Oscar OkMulcnniiig was'quickly removed to a hotel across the way.  the doclor following to render him  all the assistance in his power; but,  despite all bis efforts, und the efforts  of the council of doctors that, were  hastily summoned, the stranger sunk  rapidly.  They were greatly troubled over  him, for there was nothiiig whatever  about, him to reveal his identity, and  if they failed to bring him to consciousness for even a few moments,  to tell the whereabouts of his friends,  they would be obliged to bury him  in a namcsless grave.  At length their strenuous exertions  were rewarded. He opened his eyes  in a dazed way, looked in bewilderment about him, and at the strange  faces around his beaside.  "What is the matter?" he asked,  struggling to gain a sitting posture;  but he fell back with a terrible groan  of excruciating pain, ond before they  could answer him, he went on, "Oh,  I remember���������I remember; I fell from  the step of the train���������it gave a lurch.  Have I sustained any serious injury?  I���������I want to know the truth���������I must  know it."  The doctors looked at one another,  and one of them made a sign to his  companions, and then turned to  Glendenning,  saying;  "It is better that you know the  truth and the worst. Your case is  beyond all earthly aid. You are sinking rapidly with each fast-fleetidg  moment, When the powerful -stimulant which we administered to::^*du  to bring you to consciousness^ has  wornjaway, you will fall ii*jmediate-  ly into an unconscious state again,  -���������,1    41-.nM    ..���������..    ...Ill   .-.������,:._    -'������������������rfjw"     y  and then you will pass awafc'^A ' ���������  are    quite sure"?",^|lf-o1hui-5i!r.

"If you have anything you wish to  say, any friends you wish notified, it  would be well to speak at once while  you have strength nnd reasoning  ability. Every momont is precious  to you,"  How strange it was that in this  fatal hour, while bis soul lingered  between life and ' death, all remembrance of tho young wifo whom he  had wedded, and whom Mo loved so  well, was complotjgtf-t obliterated from  his mind, as tlioii]^ .^������ had never  existed, lie i-onuwiib-M'eajv.only tho  forged check, and that Jitoger, his  brother, had promised to (ry and  raise the money for him, and hnd  gone back on tlmt promise; and in'  bid terror ho had. lied from New  York, nnd had never known another  moment of ���������pence from that hour to  this, because of the haunting dread,  by night and by dny, that loo was  hunted ���������dowii, and that sooner or  Inter the minions of the ,lnw would  confront him, and th" end would be  a prison cell, dank anil lone, during  all the best years of his life, to bo  freed when be was old and feeble  nnd all chanco of making something  for his old age out of lhe question.

He could not utter another word  save in monosyllables, and bis mind  began to wander and his eyes were  growing duller and more hazy in  their expression with each passing instant.  "You have no one else whom you  would have me write to?" queried tho  magistrate, bending over him.  "No," he muttered; "I have no  friend in all the world save Roger,  who is suffering like a martyr for ray  ciime."  Surely Heaven might have pitied  him lying there, his young life ebbing out, and have let one thought of  tho poor young bride whom he had  just wedded, and who had ^icen parted from him by so cruel a fate, pierce  his dull, benighted brain in that awful moment; but it was not to be.

The 'blinding  smoke, the great tongues of (lanio,  the hurling rocks and flying cinders  almost, bewildered him for a moment.  Then he began to realize that ho  must not stand there; that each  moment, was precious in aiding those  about him.  Horses wero dashing about him,  neighing with frenzy nnd tramping  remorselessly upon frail women nnil  little children who could not get  out of their wny.

At one of the street corners which  he turned he came face to face with  an old friend���������a young man who had  for the past two years been stenographer to another judge in the same  building with Judge Kneeland.  "Roger Glendenning, as I live!" he  exclaimed, in the most intense  amazement, for he had seen him taken away by the officer but a short  time since.  Glendenning looked at him and  started back, turning deadly pale.  "Is it you, Jack Murray?" he gasped, in a whisper.  "Yes, it is 1���������Jack 'Murray, your  true friend!" exclaimed- the other,  grasping his hand warmly. "Thank  God you have made your escape! I  do not ask how, nor do I want to  know. 1 only know that I believe  you are as innocent as a babe of  what you are charged. You seem  dazed���������where are you going?"  "I don't know," muttered Glendenning; "my only thought is to get  away, anywhere; it does not matter  much where J go."  "Come with mc," returned the other promptly; "I am on my way to  tho depot. I am taking m.y six weeks'  vacation, commencing with to-day. I  am going to camp out���������rough it���������  with my gun, tramping through the,  swales of Maryland, and I may  even go down into the swamps of  Louisiana. Come with me, Glendenning; let me pilot you out of this  affair." And drawing Roger's unresisting arm within his own, he carried him off without much volition  on his part.  Glendenning had but a few dollars  in his pocket, but his friend was  well supplied, and purchased both  tickets. Thus, half an hour later, by  some strange fate, Roger Glendenning was whirling rapidly, * southward, leaving the scene of his misery  far behind him. ""  GOLD IN SOLUTION.  the  There Are Billions of Tom In  Water* of, the Oceans. i  Do you know that the waters of our  globe hold thousands of millions of tons  of gold In solution, and that If it were *  possible to extract the precious metal  from the aqueous constituent of our  planet gold would be the commonest  of the metals? More than 100 years ,  ago the salt boilers ou the coast oi!  Maine found slight traces of the  precious metal on the sides t>f their  evaporators, and later on Scottish  tradesmen In the same article reported  gold settlings in the water taken from  the mouth of the Dundee, ln 1803 the  chemists Malagtiti and Durocher analyzed waters from several different localities in the several oceans and seas,  tlie result being that they found a  6light trace of gold and silver in every  specimen tested. Finally, in 1S55, they  made a grand summary of all their  findings, the figures presented with  that report being without doubt the  most wonderful exhibit that has ever  been given to the scientific world.  It was there slio .i that the average  depth of all oceans is 2,500 fathoms,  and that the surface area Is suflicient  to make a grand total of 400,000,000  cubic miles of water, or not less than  1,837,030,272,000,000,000 tons. Each ton  of that vast amount of surging liquid  holds, at a very low estimate, one-  thirteenth of a grain of gold, or a total  of not less than 10,250,000,000 tons of  tho precious metal. If this vast amount  of gold could be extracted and thrown  upon the market the best financier in  the world cannot imagine what the result would be.  CHAPTER XIII.  For six weeks Jack Murray and  Roger Glendenning were as completely lost to the world as though they  were out of it altogether, and during  that time Roger regained something  of his old bright, cheerful spirits and  light-heartedness. He had made a  clean breast of the whole affair to  his sympathizing friend, and he felt  the better for sharing his grief with  another; the burden seemed lighter to  bear.

Hefmade no  attempt to persuttde Roger to mako  a full confession of tho matter to  Judge Kneeland, and thus save his  own reputation, for he knew it would  be useless,  "What is reputation, what is anything in this world to me now?"  Roger would soy, gloomily. "I can  nover win the one object that, would  make life and labor sweet to nie.

And  the  Part an   English  Statesman  Played When the Clock Struck  Twenty-Thre*  Times.  There Is a racy reminiscence of tho  present Borne Secretary and his school o  contemporaries in an illustrated article in the summer number of The  Pall Mall Magazine, just to hand. The  first time I spoke to Herbert Gladstone (says the writer, "An Old Schoolfellow") will always remain fixed in  ray memory, for it was one of the  most exciting moments of my Eton  schooldays, and as the episode connected therewith has often toeen dls- /  cussed by hundreds of Etonians, the  solution may Interest them, .^1 refer  to the memorable occasion when "'the  dear old clock in the schoolyard went  ���������apparently off its veneraible head, and  struck twenty-three times without any  known reason.  On a certain fateful day I was fn  the company of a little friend of mine,  whose nickname was "Sehex," owing  to his old-fashioned appearance, when,  on passing the entrance to cloisters,  we noticed that the door leading to the  clock tower was half-open. Without ���������  moment's hesitation we crept Inside,  and found ourselves facing an Iron  spiral staircase. It was very dark ln  the tower, the only light coming through  little slits in the wall. Taking .our  courage, however, in both hands, we  began to climb the stairs, and as we  got higher and higher, so the noise of  the mighty ticking of the clock Increased and lured us to -our fate, till  finally we found ourselves in a sort of,  room, where all the works were exposed to our eager eyes. For the first  few minutes we were too awed to move,  but by degrees we gained confidence  and began to touch various parts of the  mechanism. "Senex" was particularly-  busy in this respect, and finally pulled  a weird kind of lever. Suddenly, without a moment's warning, the clock  struck! Ye gods, what a noise It made  in the silence of that little room! It  seemed as if the whole tower was coming aliout our ears, and as if the old  clock In Its righteous anger was proclaiming to the whole school the sacrilege perpetrated hy two little lower  boys. ,  ; o The time was about eleven, and the  schoolyard was full of boys waiting to  go before their, respective masters. At  first we were not grea;tly perturbed,  hut when we had counted thirteen or  fourteen strokes, uncontrollable panic  seized us both, and we began tumbling  down the stairs as hard as we could,  -pursued-by-the-sound-of^-t-he-mad-clang���������  ing of the outraged clock. And what  added to our terror was the sight,  through the slits in the masonry, of  some two or three hundred boys and  masters gazing up at the clock tower  in speechless astonishment^ "Senex"  reached the bottom of the spiral staircase before me. and ran plump Into  the arms of old Holderness, the custodian of the cloisters.  Seeing ttie capture, I proceeded to  hide ln a dark corner toy the door! and  half an hour later, when all was quiet  and the clock had ceased from troubling, I cautiously slipped out into the  schoolyard. It was here I happened  to mee-t Herbert Gladstone, who was  then high up In the school and a celebrity in his way, for he played in the  school football eleven, and was -In  "Pop." Under ordinary circumstances  I would not have dared, as a lower  boy, to stop ihlm in the street; but X  was laboring undor great excitement,  and was undecided as to what was the  right thing to do so far as my loyalty  to "Senox" was concerned. Accordingly I walked straight up to Gladstone, and without any prelude explained exactly what had happen*^  described the capture of poor "Senex"  and asked Jf I ought to give myself up*.  "Tuppence" always had an exceptionally ploasant, cheery face, and on this  occasion It positively beamed with  merriment. He either took a certain  amount of pleasure in keeping mo In  suspense, or else he was turning the  matter carefully ovor tn his mind, for  he was some time answering. At last,  to my great rollnf, he Bald: "I don't  soo that you will do 'Sonex' any good  by giving yourself up, as he Ih sure  to bo swishod l,n any case," and than���������  tw an after thought���������ho added, "You  might stand him a strawberry mess.after Jt Is over!"
