A very successful show, with a  large attendance spoke volumes for  tho industry of the farmers of the  district and islands     There was an  exceedingly fine   lot of  stock, of  which i here was probably a better  exhibit than ever before.   The vegetables and  roots  were all in the  pink of condition.   Tlioentries were  numerous, and thc competition very  keen.    The judges, however,   got  through their work in good time,  and  the awards gave every satisfaction.     The day of holding was  not one of the most-glorious of the  year, and tbe farming foil-: and visi  tors ce tainly appreciated it when  the sun appeared during the afternoon.   Tne grounds were crowded,  and the special inU redfc of visitors,  which  was centered  in the stock,  was exceedingly we.I repaid for the  time spent upon it.    The poultry  exhibit was fair, some good specimens being   hovvn, although few  wore en;ered.    This naturally leads  strangers to think that this dis*rict  is unfavorable for poultry raising,  which in not the case, as some uiag-  ni'fic-m specimens have been bred  in Cumbeiland as well as Comox  In the cattle line Holsteins, Jerseys,  and Short horns predominated, .������������������ome  ' fineca tie being shown   The horsey  mostly heavy draught, were excel  lent tht re being quite a competition  in ihat line.    There was a marked  improvement  in   the   number   of  sheep, several grades being repre  sented.  The hogs too, exceeded that  of previous y* are in  nuo^bers, and  the sbow-ng was good.   There were  smne very fine samples of  wheat  and oats in 'straw.     The fruit was  espi oially j-ooiJ.     A box of graven-1  ~sitFiim*f f57irylie"f aFST of "XlTTrPief ey  of Den'o������an Island, attracted much  attention, h-im/ almost perfect in  size, color   ai.d   qualify.

Cowboys are the "fire lighters of the |  plains," and burning grass is the material consumed.  , We-will take, for illustration, the  great Espuela or "spur" ranch in the  lower Panhandle country of northwest  Texas and go back a number of years,  when destructive fires were moro frequent than Ihey aro now. Hundreds of  cowboys were employed on that ranch,  living in camps widely separated, covering the unsettled counties of Dickens, Crosby, Garza* and Kent.  Great and very destructive prairie  fires often occurred, and systematic  plans were adopted to .fight successfully the devouring element, which not  only involved, a great loss of grass, but  of stock also. One of the most success-  fiul plans was tho following: It was understood, among the men at the various  camps; that when smoke was discovered ascending from the prairie each  and every cowboy must saddle his  horse and gallop away toward the fire  straight out in a line from his camp.  This had to be done at night also, the  fire then being detected by its light,  and the boys would come from every  direction, striking the line of fire at  many different points almost at the  game time. ��������� If the fire had spread much,  the men from the different camps  would sometimes be many miles from  each other, those from the same station  going iii a squad together.  If it was at night the scene would be  one of wild and weird grandeur���������the  great line of fire, the galloping.horses  as the cowboys approached it, some  from camps on opposite sides, thoir  forms.and those of their hoi'es stand;  ing in relief in the bright* lave of the  -burning���������grassr--Herds^-of���������hollowing,,  frightened, stampeding cattle made  tho scene more terrible and exciting  as they ran before the pursuing,  crackling,'roaring flames. Above tha  din could be, heard loud shouts of command from leaders of the assembling  men.  The men were not standing still on  their horses. The fire was traveling,  and they were going with it until  ready to begin their attack. Cattle:  must be sacrificed to save cattlo. As  soon as an animal fell four cowboys  dismounted, and sharp knives and  hatchets were at work, and in loss  time than it takes to tell the slain animal was cut in twain. The halves  wore split so as to lay fiat upon the  ground, and to each hoof tho end of a  rope was fastened, the other end being  around the pommel of a cowboy's saddles They clashed away to tho line  of fire, drugging the severed parts after them.  Wli ��������������� tlio cowboys reached this, two  mon 7*ould cross plunge through tho  blnzo. Tom tried it, but his horse  wheeled nnd turned away from tho  blaze, snorting loudly and In terror.  "Glvo mo your end of tho rope,  Tom," ono of tho other men said. "I  can go over. P.lack IHuicnn will face  it." And with a grout plunge ho cleared tho lino of five.  One of the other two nlso crossed,  and without a moment's halt and wllli  scorched faces they wheeled their  horses and ran parallel with tho lire,  dragging Ibi. bloody half ot the boof  over It, smothering the lire mit ns fast  its their hoiwa could vv.n and drag  the weight, Ono num wan tlien on ono  side of tlio lire nud iho other on the  opposite, each with his vopu to tho  font of a beef, HtriuUllliW the Maze and  beat lux out the greater part of It.

In the course of  conversation it developed that each of  the four had at one time or another  been a telegraph operator. Tbey sat up  until after midnight telling tbe weird  stories of adventure which are the  stock in trade of old time operators.  It was 8 o'clock the next morning  when two of tho party went into the  djning ear. Their two friends of the  night before were already seated at a  table far down the car, and across the  aisle from tbe latter sat a beautiful  young woman and a handsome man.  One of the old operators, uow a dignified and portly, lawyer, was struck  with a brilliant idea as he sat waiting  for his breakfast. He would see whether his new found friends down the aisle  still remembered the letters of the  Morse code. With the handle of his  fork he began to tick off a message on  the edge of his plate:  "E-a-p���������rap���������rapety���������r-a-p." came the  clicks in quick succession until be had,  spelled out the message, "Darn pretty  girl across from you."  Both the men at thc other table were  quick to catch the message, aud, with a  smiie, one of them answered it. using  his fork and plate as a telegraph ticker  and sounder.  "Regular peach. Look like bridal couple. Man might be worse looking, too,"  came the message from the middle aged  banker, who used to handle the chained  thunderbolts in his youth.  "Can't beat blue eyes and yellow  hair," the first old sinner rapped out on  his plate. "Wish 1 was twenty years  younger. Let's drink her health any*  how." ,.    ,  Then as the four men lifted theit  glasses a strange thing happened; JThe  bridegroom across the .aisle began to  beat on the edge of his water glass  with his silver knife. All four listened  intently. Yes; there was no doubt about  it. He was actually rapping out a  "M'orse~messa"ger���������A-nd-this-is~what-they^  spelled out: '  "Thanks, gentlemen.

'  "You have' no . ambition," he .said.  "You are content to do nothing. When  I was your age I wanted to be somebody -1 wanted to-excel. I saw what  ethers were doing, aud I tried to beat  them." "  "That's what I want to do, father,"  pleaded the boy.  "Oh, you do!" retorted the old gentleman scornfully. "Well, you have a  queer'way of showing it. You should  pick out some man who is or has been  a star in his line aud try to emulate  him."  "That's just what I'm doing," said  the boy.  The old gentleman looked at him" in  astonishment.  "Have 1 really judged you unjustly?"  he asked.  "Indeed you have." asserted the boy.  "Is it possible that your mind is tilled  with great thoughts? Have you really  an aim in life? Do you .wish to lead, to  excel or at least to equal the triumphs  of others?"  "That's it exactly." asserted the boy..  "Thon I have done you an injustice."  said the old gentleman. "If you really  have nn ambition, you may count on  the help of your old father. What is  it?" - *     .     -  "Well,-1 was reading awhile ago of a  young fellow who set out to spend an  inheritance of $75,000 cash in two  years," explained tbe boy. "The papers  made quite a fuss about it, and he certainly did well and deserved all the attention he got. But,*, father, J believe  I can beat him, if you'll give me the  chance. I think I eould make him look  like a plugged nickel in that lino.

BABY'S DANGER.  The summer months are a bad  time for babies, and an anxious time  for mothers. Fermentation and decomposition in ., the stomach and  bowels are the cause of the many  summer complaints of babbles aud  youug' children. This is the reason  why the hot weather months are  more fatal to little ones than any  other season; Baby's Own Tablets  should always be found in every  home whero there are young children,  and their prompt use during hot  weather may save a precious little  'life. The, tablets cure constipation,  diarrhoea, and stomach'troubjles, and  are guaranteed to contain no opiato  or harmful drug. Mrs. Walter  Kollins, Sissons Bridge, N.S., says:  ���������"Before using- Baby's Own Tablets  my littlo one cried almost continu-.  ously with stomach troubles.

Seneca, the Roman rhetorician; was able to repeat 2,000 words  upon onco hearing them, each in its!  order, though they had no dependence  or connection on each other. Pontius  Lat'ro retained in his memory all the  orations he had ever spoken, without  failing.-in even a single word. Cyneas,  Ambassador to the Romans from  King Pyrrhus, in-one day so well  learned the names of his audience  that the next morning he saluted tho  whole Senate and all the populace  assembled, each* by his name. Cyrus  knew every soldier in his army by  name, and Scipio had a speaking acquaintance with all tho citizens of  Rome.

Writing in 1900 to Ewart S. Gro-  gan, a plucky young traveler who  had just completed u journey from  the Capo to , Cairo. Cecil Rhodes  said:  "EVery one supposes that the railway is being built with tho onljP object that a human being may be ablo  to get in at Cairo and get out at  Capo Town1. This is, of course, ridiculous. The object is to cut Africa  through the centre, and the railway  will pick up trado a.U along tho  route.

From this point onward, however,  Rhodes' scheme has had to be modified    as thc    nature of   the couniiy  around the chain of lakes stretching  from tho Zambesi to the Nine came  to be known.      As  Grogan  pointed  out, Lake Tanganyika is hemmed iu  by steep,; mountains   offering    well-  nigh  insurmountable  difficulties     to  railway    construction,     but on   tho  other hand,  tho lake itself offers   a  magnificent  waterway    of four hundred miles on the direct line between  the Capo and Cairo. -It may bo taken as granted,   therefore, that .this  part of the journey will be mndo by  water, and .that passengers will   he  carried by steamboat from Kituta to  Usambara,  at the north end of  thc  lake.   From here   to Lake Kivu    is  ninty miles,  offering no serious   obstacle to a-railway beyond a rise in  level  of two thousand feet.       Lake  Kivu is sixty miles in length,    and  1 this sheet of water also is surrounded  by high  and  procipitous mountains,  so that   another   break in    the lino  will have to be made and the waterway utilized.

It was originally intended to carry  tho lino from Buluwayo due north  through, .the Mafungnbusi coal district, crossing tho Zariibesi at tho  Kaidba" Gorge. It was found, however, that tho country north, of the  Zambesi at this point .odors immense  difficulties for railway construction,  and that tho valuo of the coal. deposits is not to be compared with  that of the Wankio coal fields.  Thb certainty of a largo tourist  trailic if the.lino wero carried to the  Victoria Falls formed a further inducement to choose th6 western  route, uud accordingly the line northward from Buluwnyo* was begun- -in  May, 1001, Last' year :it reached  Waiik'ie, a distance of two hundred  miles, and the additional seveniy-  ftyo-miles to tho fulls have been constructed in letiH than 'a '��������� twelvemonth.

HUMAN SKILL versus MACHINES.  ^^.^Mgn^sjng^njtyjnvents machines to do workT man^ skill cannot do.   No fingers, however deft, cpuld ever sew a stitch locked inside a piece  of leather.  No eye, however true, could gauge with absolute accuracy the length of  the stitches on a hundred thousand pairs of shoes���������or on one pair.  No human muscle could work eight, ten, fifteen or twenty-four hours a day,  and draw the stitches evenly, tightly, all day long.  And no human being would have the patience to wax his thread before  every stitch���������or remember to do it if he had the'patience.  And fifty men could not make a3 many imperfect shoes in the time one  Goodyear Welt Machine takes to makes ������Tty perfect pairs.  " What does Goodyear Welt mean ?"  "It is the very best, most perfect method ever invented for joining the  Uppers of shoes to the Soles."  "^Vliyisatthebest?"  " Because it's the only method that makes  a shoe without a stitch or a tack under the  foot and stronger than hand sewing/'  " Why is it stronger than hand sewing ? *  "Because it locks its stitches inside the  leather of. the outer sole, draws them tighter and  more uniformly than nand sewing. *  oooovcm w������.t looked .T.TCH. ������ What advantage does the lock stitch give f  "The holding power of thc stitch remains till the sole is worn through  whereas in hand sewn shoes, the top of the stitch wears off ia a few days and  only straight strands of thread are left to hold the sole on.'  u Does it make the shoe cheaper as well as better ?"  "It docs because it makes fifty perfect pairs, where one imperfect pair  could not be made by hand."  " Have any improvements been made in the  Goodyear Machines in recent years ?"  " Yes, a vast improvement has been made in  the New, Improved Goodyear Welt Machine, now  iu use in the Slater Shoe Factory."  " What is the nature of the improvement ? n  " A better motion of the parts, producing better  results ia the shoe."  " Cau a novice tell a Coodycar Welt by ncchg it?"  44 Not always because there are imitations,"  " How ca|_ he be sure of getting a genuine Goodyear Welt Shoe ?,f  n By buying only " The Slater Shoe " because " Slater Shoes " are made only  by the m:w, improved Goodyear Welt process."

"AU thoso men. taken at Omsk and at  Kalyvan; ������������������ are going to defile before  your eyes, and if you do not point, out  Michael Strogoff you shall receive ni������  many blows of the kuout as there shall  be men who have passed before you."  Ivan Ogareff had now realized that  whatever threats he might utter and to  whatever tortures he might subject her.  the Indomitable Siberian would not  speak. To discover the courier of the  czar he now counted not upon her, but  upon Michael Strogoff himself. He did  not believe it possible tbat when the  mother and the son should be brought  into the presence of each other an Irresistible impulse would not betray them.  Certainly if he had only wished to  gain possession of the imperial letter  he could, simply have given orders for  all these prisoners to be searched. But  Michael Strogoff might havo destroyed  this letter after learning its contents,  and If be were not recognized and he  should- gain Irkutsk the plans of Ivan  Ogareff would be all frustrated. Wherefore it was not only the letter which he  must have from the traitor; he must  have the bearer of it.  Nadia at length understood all, and  she now knew who was Michael Strogoff ������and why he had wished to, traverse, without being, known, tbe invaded  provinces of Siberia.  On the order of Ivan Ogareff the prisoners passed one by one before Marfa  Strogoff, who remained immovable as  a statue and whose regard expressed  only the most complete indifference.  Her son was in the last ranks. When  ln his turn he passed before his mother, Nadia shut her eyes in order not to  see him.  ��������� Michael  Strogoff had remained ap-  ^P.ai^ntlxJj!iums������iMe._Jb���������uJ;Jiis hands were  bleeding from the pressure of the fetters.."? .*.*,  Ivan Ogareff was conquered by the  son and the mother.  Sangarre, placed near him, ouly said  one word���������"Knout!"  "Yes," cried Ivan Ogareff, "let this  old., jade have the knout and let the  punishment continue until she die!"  A Tartar soldier, carrying that terrible instrument of torture, approached  Marfa Strogoff.  Tho knout is composed of a certain  number of leather thongs, to tbe ends  of which are attached twisted iron wire.  One can easily understand-that to bo  condemned to receive a hundred and  twenty blows from such a. whip' Is the  same thing ns to be condemned to  death. Marfa Strogoff knew it, but  she also knew that uo torture upon  earth could make* her speak, and she  had already offered the sacrifice of her  life for her sou's safely.  Marfa Strogoff, 'having been se!i:ed by  two soldiers, was thrown en tier knees  on (lie ground. Her robe, having beeu  torn, exposed her linked back. A .pnbor  was fixed before hor breast at'.the distance of only a few Inches, nml In ciko  Hho should bend under the pain her  breast would bo pierced with tho sharp  point.

The letter to tho Imperial armies was*  fouud lu lhe breast of Michael Strogon,  who had not hnd tlmo to destroy it, aud  it wan handed orer to Ivan Ogareff.

" "And allow his mother to perish under the knout?"  ��������� "Do you believe that he has acted  better by his rash haste than bis mother and his sister?"  "I don't believe anything; I knownoth-  lng," answered Alcide Jolivet, "only  had I been ln his place I should not  havo acted otherwise. What a slash!  Eh, what���������the. devil, we must boil over  sometimes. ���������God -would have placed  water in our veins and not blood had  he wished us to remain always and everywhere imperturbable."  "What a splendid incident for a newspaper article!" said Harry Blount. "If  Ivan Ogareff wrould ouly communicate  to us the contents of that letter!"  Ivan Ogareff, after having wip&d off  the blood which covered his face, had  broken the seal of the letter. He read  it again and again for a long time, as  if he wished to fathom its contents.  Then, having given his orders that  Michael Strogoff, strongly fettered,  should be sent on to Tomsk with the  other prisoners, he took command of  the troops encamped at Zabedeiro, and  amid the deafening sounds of drums  and trumpets he marched to the town  where the emir was awaiting him.  They had not long to wait for the  lieutenant of Feofar. Resounding bugles announced his arrival.  Ivan Ogareff���������the Hashed, as they already begun to call him���������dressed this  time in the uniform of a Tartar dOcer,  arrived on horseback before the tent  "oTrtTe emlK**^FwII^7WTairante;d~by-  a body of the soldiers from the camp  of Zabedeiro, who drew up along the  sides of the plateau, in the middle of  which he remained only during the  time allotted to the amusements. One  could see a deep gash cutting obliquely  the face of the traitor.  Ivan Ogareff presented to the emir  his principaFofficors, and Feofar-Khan,  without departing from the ,coldness  which was the main,foundation of his  dignity, received them Iu a manner  which made them satisfied with their  reception.  Alcide Jolivet and Harry Blount.then  joined tho, crowd and looked on In such  a manner as not to lose any detail of a  feast, which was to'furnish a hundred  good lines for tho newspapers. Thoy  gassed with astonishment on Feofar-  Khan In his magnificence, his women,  his officers, his guards and alt this ovl-  ental pomp, of which tho ceremonies,  of Europe can give no Idea. But they  turned away with disdain when Ivan  Ogareff presented .hlm.self before tho  emir, and they waited, uot without  Rome lmpatlonce, for the feast to begin.  "Do you see, my dear Blount," said  Alcldo Jolivet, "we aro como too soon,  like good citizens who must, needs como  or lose their money. All this Is only  tlio rising of tho curtain. It would  hnvo been better tnsto to have arrived  only for the ballet,"  "WhaJ ballot?" asked Harry Blount.  "Tho obligatory ballet, faith. But I  thiuk tho eurtnlu Is about to rise,"  AlcJdo Jolivet spoko as If he woro at  tho opera', and, taking his glass from  Its case, ho prepared to huvo a look nt,  as a connoisseur, tho first subjects of  Feofnr's troop.  But a tedious ceremony' was to pro-  codo tho amusements. *  Meanwhile most of tho prisoners had  piwod beforo tho omlr, nnd In passing  each of them had to prostrate tho forehead to touch tho very dtmt as a ������lgn  of servility. It wns tho slavery which  commenced with humiliation. When  the unfortunate), were too slow In bending, tho rude hnnd of the guards cast  thorn violently to tho onrth. Alcide  Jollvot nnd his companion could not  iiHslBt at such a spectacle without feel-  lug the greatest Indignation.  "This Is cownrdlyl Let ua go awayl"  said Aiuuu .jutim.  "*\u," rvplH-U Uuuy BlutiLli "xvo  must seo all."  "Seo all! Ah!" cried Alcide Jolivet  suddenly, seizing tho arm of his companion.  "What Is tho matter with youV" ask-  ed tho former.  "Look!

We must save  her J"  "RMtr-ifn yourself." coldly replied  Harry Blount, "Our Intervention in  behalf of this young girl would be more  hurt foi than useful to ber.M  Alcide Jolivet, ready to rush forward,  stopped himself, and Nadia. wbo bad  Dot DWtfred tbem, belna half relied  by her hair, passed in her turn before  the emir, without attracting his*attention.  ' ;' '���������  , In the meantime, after Nadia. Marfa  Strogoff, had arrived,* and as she did  not throw herself Quickly enough into  the dust the; guards: brutally '.pushed*  her.  Marfa Strogoff fell.  Her son made a terrible movement,  which the soldiers who were guarding,,  him could witb'difilculty master.  But old Marfa raised herself, and  they were about to drag her when lvaa  Ogareff intervened.,saying:  "Let this woman remain."  As for Nadia, she was throwu back  among tho crowd of prisoners. The  look of Ivan Ogareff had not fixed itself upon her.  Michael Strogoff wa3 then led beforo  the emir, and there he remained erect,  without lowering his eyes.  "Your face to the ground!" Ivan Ogareff cried out to him.  "No!" replied Michael Strogoff. Two  guards wished to force him to bend,  but it was they who were 'thrown to  the ground by the hand of the robust  young man. ��������� ��������� , ������  Ivan Ogareff advanced toward Michael Strogoff.  "You are about to die," said he.  "I shall die," fiercely, answered Michael Strogoff, "but your face of traitor, Ivan, will not the less bear and forever the infamous mark of the knout!"  Ivan Ogareff at this answer became  horribly pale. '���������"*:*  "Who is this prisoner?" demanded  the, emir in a voice the more menacing  because of its calmness.  "A Russian spy," answered Ivan Ogareff.  In making out Michael Strogoff a spy  he'   knew   the   sentence   pronounced  against him would be the more terri-  ���������ble.  'Michael Strogoff moved toward Ivan '  Ogareff.  The soldiers stopped him.  The emir then made a gesture before  which the w7hole,, crowd bent their  heads. Afterward he .motioned, with'  his hand for the Koran, which was  brought to him. He opened the book  and placed his finger on one of the:  pages.  ilt was chance, or, rather, as these  orientals think, God himself, who was  about to decide the fate of Michael  Strogoff. The people of-central Asia  , give the name of "fal" to this practice.  After having interpreted the sense :of~  the verse touched by the finger of the  judge they apply the sentence, whatever it may be.  The emir had left his finger resting  on tho page of the Koran. Tlie chief;  of the ulemas, then approaching, read:  with a loud voice a verse which-, finished; with these words:  "And he shall see no more the things  of  the  earth."    "Russian  spy,"  said  Feofar-Khan, "you came to see what;  is passing in the camp, of the Tartars!  Look, then, with all your eyes!  Look!"  CHAPTER XIII.  ICHAEL STROGOFF,,  with his hands bound,  ^was held ln front of the  emir's throne at the foot  of the terrace,  His mother, ovorcomo  at last by so many physical nnd moral tortures, had sunk down,'  not daring to look or listen any longer.  "Look with all your eyos! Look!"  Feofnr-Khau had said, stretching out  his threatening hand toward Michael  Strogoff.  Without dq,ubt Ivan Ogareff, knowing  well the Tartar customs, had understood tho bearing of that word, for his  lips parted for an Instant Ui a cruel  Emtio, Then he went to tako bis place,  uear Feofar-Khan.  A call of trumpets was heard Immediately. It was tho signal., for the  amusements. ,  ".Vow we have the ballet," snid Alcldo Jollvot to Horry Blount; "but, con-  trtiry to nil custom, thoso barbarians  give It boforo the drama."  Michael Strogoff had been ordered to  look. He did took. A r.wnrm of fonmlo  dancers enmo upon the space reserved  for them. Various Tartar instruments,  united with' the guttural voices of tho  singers, formed a u trim go harmony,  Thero wero a mandolin with a long neck  made of tho wood of tho mulberry treo,  with two strlugs of twisted silk, a kind  of violoncello, open at tho back, fur-  nUlietl with horsehair and made to  vibrato with a bow, a loug flute mado  of a reed, trumpets, tambourines aud  tomtoms.  At onco tho dances began.  These dancers performed very gracefully various dances, sometimes Kingly  ami sometimes In groups. They had  their fares uncovered, but from time to  time tbey drew a light veil over their  figures, nnd one wuimi have .aid (.Ui.  a cloud of gauso was pasxiug over their  sparkllug eyes like a vapor over the  starry heaven.  When tills flrst entertainment wns  over, a grave volco wns heard, wumu  said: "Look with all your eyesl Look!"  Tho man who repented these words  of tho emir, a Tartar of high stature,  wan tbo chief executioner of Feofar-  Khan. He had taken bis position behind Michael Strogoff, and he held to  his hand a sword wltb a broad and  curved blade, one ot those Damascus  blades wblcb bad been tempered by  thc famous armorers of Karscbl or of  Hlssar.  Near bim lone guards had brought a  tripod op wblcb was placed as Iron  dish, where some redhot coals were  burning without emitting any smoke.  The light crust which crowned (hem  was dye only to the incineration of a  resinous and aromatic substance, a  mixture of, frankincense and ..benzoin;'  which had been thrown on their surface. .  Meanwhile another group of dancers  had succeeded the first, 'but of a race  very different, which Michael Strogoff  at once recognized.  And we must believe that the two  journalists also recognized them, for  Harry Blount said to his confrere:  "These are the Zingari of Nijni. Novgorod."  "The very ones!" cried Alcide Jolivet.  "I Imagine their eyes bring more money to these spies than their legs!"  And in maklug them out to be agents  in the service of the emir Alcide Jolivet, it Is well known, did not deceive  himself.  In the first rank of the gypsies figured Sangarre, lu her superb costume,  strange and picturesque as it was,  which set off still more her beauty.  Sangarre did not dance, but stood In  the middle of her dancing girls, whose  fantastic steps partook of all the countries which their race had traversed ln  Europe, of Bohemia, of Egypt of Italy  nnd of Spatn. They became animated  at the noise of the cymbals: which  clanged on their arms and at the swelling of the "duires." a kind of drum  sounded by the fingers.  Sangarre, holding one of these daires,  which trembled between her hands, excited this troop of veritable corybantes. 0  Then came forward a youthful gyp-  sj*y some fifteen years old at most.   He  held In his hand a doutare, the two  cords of which he made to vibrate by a  simple gliding of the nails. He sang.  During the couplet of his song of fantastic rhythm a danseuse came and  placed herself near him and remained  immovably, listening to him, but each  time the burden came to the lips of the  young singer she again took up her interrupted dance, shaking her dalre near  him and deafening him with the sound  of her drum.  Then, after the last verse; the dancers  enlaced the gypsy in a thousand turnings of their dances. ,  ���������; ���������- .. ..  At this moment a shower of gold fell  from the hands of the emir and his allies, from; the hands of the officers of  all grades, and to the noise of the  jileces-whlch-Struck the cymbals of the  dancers were blended the last murmurs  of the doutares and tambourines.  "Prpdigal as freebooters!" said Alcide Jolivet in the ear of his companion., ... *,,,,.'  And, Indeed, it was stolen money  which fell in showers, for with the  Tartar tomans and sequins rained also  Muscovite ducats and rubles.  Then silence was made for an instant, and the voice of the executioner,  placing his hand ou the shoulder of Michael Strogoff, again spoke those words  whose repetition rendered them still  more sinister:  "Look with nil your eyes!   Look!"  But thi* time Alcide Jolivet observed  that the executioner did notv hold his  naked sword in his hand."  Then suddenly, as if at a given signal, all the fires of tho fantasia were  extinguished, tho dances ceased, the  dancers disappeared, Tho ceremony  wns terminated, and'tho torches alono  lit up. tho plateau which somo instants  before was so full of lights,  At n sign from tbo emir Michael Strogoff was led into tho middle, of tho  square.  Llttlo desirous of assisting at tho torture reserved for this unfortunate man,  Harry Blount and Alcide Jolivet then  re-entered tho,city.  An hour later they were hastening  nloug the road to Irkutsk, and It was  among tho Russian's' they would attempt to follow what Alcldo Jollvot  called by anticipation "tho campaign  of revenge."  Tho'emir made a gesture. Michael  Strogoff, pushed by tho guards, approached tho terrace, nnd then In that  Tartar language which ho understood  Fcofnr snid to him:  "Russian spy, you aro como* to see.  You havo soon for tho last tlmo. In an  Instant thlno eyes shall ho forever shut  tothellgbtr  It was not with doath, but with  blindness that Michael Strogoff was  about to be stricken. Loss of sight,  more tcrriblo perhaps than loss of llfel  The unhappy man was condothned to  lone his eyoslgbt  Nevertheless on hearing the penalty  pronounced by tho emir Michael Strogoff did uot become weak.

Bnt ho did not allow  to be seen any of tbo emotion wblcb he  felt.  Besides, tbe feeling of vengeance, to  be accomplished at some future time,  carried away bli whole being,  "lvaa," said be, witb a menacing  rolee, "Ivan, the traitor, the last threat  of my eyes shall be for thee."  Ivaa Ogareff shrugged bis shoulders.  But Michael Strogoff deceived bin-  self. It was not In looking at Ivan  Ogareff tbat bit eyea were to be fixed  never more te open.  Marfa Strogoff came and stood before  him-.', *' .    '   -     ''���������'..':; !.;-���������  "My mother!" cried he.

"Drive away this woman!" said Ivan  Ogareff.  Two soldiers pushed back Marfa Strogoff. She drew. back, but regained  standing some paces distant from her  son.' : ��������� :-.������������������'  The executioner appeared. This time  he held his naked sword in his hand.  That sword, heated to a white heat, he  had Just drawn from the iron pan  where the perfumed coals were''burning. ' *    _.;,..'   "'���������''' ,  Michael Strogoff was about*'to be  made blind according to the Tartar cus-  tomv with a heated blade passed over  his eyes!  Michael Strogoff did not seek to resist. Nothing else existed in his eyes  than his mother, whom he devoured  then with his look. All his life was in  this last vision.  Marfa Strogoff, with her eyes wide  open and her arms stretched toward  him, was looking at him.  The white heated blade passed over  the eyes of Michael Strogoff.  A loud cry of despair was heard. Old  Marfa fell lifeless to the earth!  Michael Strogoff was blind.  His orders having been executed, the  emir retired with all his household.  Soon there only remained on the plateau Ivan Ogareff and the torchbear-  ers.  Did the miserable wretch wish to in-  BUlt him still more aud after'the executioner give him the last blow?  Ivan Ogareff slowly approached Michael Strogoff, who heard him coming  and at once straightened himself.  Ivan Ogareff, drew from his pocket  the emperor's letter. He opened it and  as the last insult placed it before the .  eyes of the courier of the czar, before  those eyes whose light had been brutally extinguished forever, saying at  the same time:  - "Read now, Michael Strogoff; read  and go and repeat at Irkutsk what you  shall have road. The true courier of  the czar is myself!"  Having said this, the traitor placed  ,-iheJatte������inJhis_biLe^^  turning round, he left the place, and  the torchbearers followed him.  Michael Strogoff remained alone,  some paces from his mother, who was  lifeless, perhaps dead.  One heard at a distance the cries, the  songs; all tbe noise of the orgies.  Tomsk was illuminated and was bright  as a city during.a great feast.  Michael .Strogoff listened.   The scone  of tho lato revels and crime was silent;  and deserted; ^  Ho dragged himself by groping toward the placo where his mother had-  fallen. Ho found her with his\and.  Ho bent down toward her., Ho brought'*  bis figure near to hers. He' listened  to the beatings of her heart. Then ono  would havo said that he spoke to her  In a low voice.  Did old Marfa still live nnd did sho  hear the words her son spoke to her?  In any case sho did uot make any  , sign of life by movement.  Michael Strogoff kissed her forehead  and her white hairs. Then ho rose,  and, groping with his foot and trying  to hold his handy In such a way ns to  guide him, he walked by llttlo and llttlo to tho end of the plateau.  Suddenly Nadia appeared.

For that reason tho case of A. W.  Holman, tho well-known butcher of  193J Mutual Street this city, is well-  worthy of attention. Mr. Holman  had Diabetes. Now he is a well man.

My attention was called to  Dodd's Kidney Pills by an advertisement and I began to use them. I  only used six boxes when I was completely cured."  As it is conceded that what will  cure Diabetes will curo any Kidney  Disease it unust be admitted that  Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure any  Kidney Disease.

G. Short in an address before the  Wisconsin cheesemakers' convention.  In actual work \ve have a condition  where the patron is at one end of n  seesaw, the customer at the other and  the choosemaker iu the middle, trying  to keep both ends even.  An average cheosqmaker can take  good milk aud make a good cheese, but  it needs no prophet nor tho son of a  prophet to foreseo that dirty, tainted  milk will make a poor cheese in spite  of the efforts of tho most successful  among you.  Tbo cheesomnkor's ability to change  the quality of his milk ls limited. Ho  can neither pastourlzo nor sterilize.  The llttlo ho can do with a starter toward improving conditions does not  have a marked influenco on the quality  of milk If It is poor In the beginning.  So his skill Is largely dependent on tho  personal habits of from twenty to sixty men who supply lilm with his raw  material, nnd it naturally follows that  ho must tako an Interest In things outside tho factory whether ho desires lt  or not.
