Consumption has been proven highly  contagious, and unless stringent  steps are taken to combat, the en-  emy, the diseane will in time seriously menace the Anglo Saxon  race. It has' heen discovered that  germs of the disease are widely  disseminated by means of spittle  deposited by affected persons, and  it has become a mailer of necessity  that consumptives must be treated  in hospitals where proper treatment can be given tbeio, aud proper  precautions against, the spreading  of the disease be observed. Ordinary hospitals are every day refusing admittance to consumptive  patients, and the unfortunates too  often must sufler in places where  pro pit r precautions cannot be ob*  ���������served,* and where th?y are a men-  nee to everyone with whom they  come in contact Many persons,  strangers in a strange land, when  afflicted with the dread disease, are  even refused admission to hotels  and hoarding housed, and are forced to seek shelter wherever possible  Hence the urgent need of Sanitar.  ium all over lhe world.

"I know that it will cure catarrh of  the head or stomach, indigestion,  headache and any weary or sick feeling.  "It is bound to help anyone, if used  according tp directions.  "I also know dozens of men who  speak in the highest terms of Peruna  and have yet to hear of anyone being  disappointed in it."

Therefore example take by me  To serve thy God as I serve thee.  Another favorite Inscription was  Tempus Fugit," er "Time Files," and  thereby bangs a tale.

A Medical Explanation of Why They  Are Written   In  Latin.  The use of Latin by physicians in  prescription writing is commonly regarded as a harmless survival of  medioevalism. Occasionally a lay writer  suggests its abandonment. In commenting on a recent note to this effect  In a dally paper, which advocates the  compulsory use of English iu prescriptions, the Druggists' Circular and  Chemical Gazette takes occasion to  make a strong defense of the time  honored practice.   Says this paper:  "Suppose the sapient writer quoted,  whose utterances may sound all right  to those who know no more of hts subjects than he does, should fall sick and  his physician should decide that the  one thing needful to save his life was  Geranium robertianum. If there wove  a law preventing the doctor from prescribing in Latin be would have to  choose one of the upward of a dozen  English names for this drug. Supposo  he chose 'redshanks' and so wrote the  word in his prescription. When the  druggist went to prepare the medicine  pe would find that 'redshanks' was the  English name of at least four entirely  different plants���������namely, the one already mentioned, Polygonium am-  phiblum, Polygonium persicaria and  Rumex acetosa. !  "As with redshanks so with hundreds  of other drugs. Aaron's beard may be  Cotinus continus, Cymbalaria eym-  balaria or Saxifraga sarmentosaf Of  snakeroots there are numberless, kinds.  Suppose tbe English writing doctor  wanted to be sure of getting the right  kind, so specified black snakeroot.  Then is the druggist to dispense Ciml-  cifuga racemosa, Asarum canadense or  Sanicula marilandica?"  tr  IOTP  Books.  I would prefer to have one comfortable room well stocked with books to  all you can give me in the way of  decoration which the highest art can  supply.

This new blood strengthens  every organ in the body, and strikes  straight at the root of anaemia, and  the common ailments of life which  have their origin in poor, weak", watery blood. Mrs. A. H. Seeley, of Stirling, Out., tells what Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills did for her fourteen year  old sister, Miss Annie Sager, after  other treatment had failed. She says:  "For some years Annie had not been  well. She would take spells of dizziness and headaches that would last  for several days, and her whole body  would become dry and hot as though  she was burning up with fever. Her  lips would swell until near the bursting point, and then .when the fever  would leave her the outer skin of the  lips would peel off. She doctored  with two different doctors, but they  did not succeed in curing her, and  the trouble seemed gradually to be  growing worse. Then we began giving  her Dr, Williams' link Pills and under this treatment she has recovered  her health. The headaches and dizziness have gone; her color ia improved; her appetite better, and she  has had no further attacks of the  fever which baffled the doctors.

Peculiarity of the Ring Srojintalna  of tlie Moon. . i -;  The moon Is really>ihd tru%a great  planet of mountains,'' its w*|iole visible  surface being dotted with elevations  of curious shapes and of extraordinary  height. We say "its whole visible surface" and hasten to explain that we  make this statement simply because  the eye of man has never seen but one  side of the surface of the moon. What  we see convinces us that the little  planet is extremely mountainous, for  on the "end" exposed to our view  there are no less than 30,000 peaks,  varying in height from 2,000 feet to  l'our miles. When we consider the fact  that this lunarian world is only one  thirty-second part as large as the  earth we can easily see why it deserves the title of the "planet of great  mountains." There is a peculiar thing  about these 30,000 moon peaks. Each  and every one of them has a ringlike  form, the open end of the conical point  being of greater or lesser diameter, according to the height of the' mountain.  In a low grade telescope these peaks  resemble true volcanoes, but when  viewed through a high grade glass it is  seen that the depression in the center  jpJLthe queer "ring mountain" Is .often  The whaling cutter Snowdrop of  Montrose has been lost on the coast of  Greenland with a cargo on board, the  whalebone being valued at about $10,-  000.  so great as to he below The general"  level of the surrounding country. The  depth of these depressions is calculated in a curious manner, by figuring  on the relative shadows they cast  when the sun Is shining full upon  them. The diameter of these "ring  mountains" varies greatly, some of the  larger ones being 50, 100 or even 150  miles, while the smaller look like post  holes when viewed through a good telescope.  MARKING TRUNKS.  Odd DeTlces Used liy Which to Haaily  Identify Unuifngo,  A curious fashion of marking trunks  by some individual and odd device has  come Into practice. It is a trick that  helps to Identify ouo's baggage instantly, even at a distance, In a crowded  railway station, and thus facilitates  travel, especially abroad, whore so  much red tape entangles baggage  trausportatlon.  Some of the devices used are queer,  to say tho least. A lover of dogs had  big brlndle's heads In brown and white  painted at Intervals on all her trunks  and suit cases before sailing for Germany. She felt sure, sho snid, that  she would bo able to Identify her hag-  gage auy where by theso slgus,  Anothor curious design Is that of  skull and crossbonbs, dono ln black,  wblto and rod, on top, sides and ends  of trunk and on tho bottom of every  bag of ono traveler.

POSTIE!" called Genevieve   Deere   through  the  open   latticed   window   of  the breakfast room, "have  you any letter for us children?"  Over her shoulder peeped Brother  Ben and little Sister Helen, their  eager faces full of, tho same inquiry, as  the postman, who was about to ring  the doorbell of the house on the op->  poslte side of the street, turned at the  sound of Genevieve's voice and  glanced up their way.  "Let me see," he answered. "Why���������  yes, I think I have a letter for you."  "Oh, oh!" squealed Helen. "It's  frum Auntie Wiggins, I know!"  "Oh, may we come and get it from  you right away?" asked Genevieve.  "I'll run across to you," called Ben  before the good-natured postman had  time to so much as ooen his mouth to  fay "yes." Delving into his bag, he  produced the letter just as Ben reached hts side.  "Thank you," said Ben, and flew  back to the house, where Genevieve  and Helen were impatiently waiting  to see the address and postmark of  the letter.  "Yes, it's Auntie Wiggins' writing!"  said Genevieve.  "And the postmark says Walton  Hills," said Ben.  Helen, who had not yet learned to  read writing and did not understand  the meaning of postmarks, .thrust a  paper cutter into Genevieve's hand.  "Oh, do open, the letter, sister," she  begged.  "Poor Helen! We -won't keep her  waiting,any longer,"  declared Gene-  Thoroughbred Dogs Need  to Work  YOU boys and girls are used to  thinking of dogs as idle and useless, unless they happen to be  . good watchdogs, in which case  you might consider them somewhat useful at night.  In  general,, however,   it  is  true  that  our dogs are mere pets;    And, indeed, *  we are probably all the fonder of them'  because   they   are   pets,    rather   than  beasts of burden.  Many people, however, are coming to  think that if we would be really kind  to dogs we would train them to work  for us. This is especially true of finely  bred dogs, which are growing more ahd  more stupid and more and more delicate.  Dog fanciers tell us it would be a  great   blessing- to   prize-dogs   if   they  could be regularly 'employed' in some  kind of work. They would feel much  better physically; and the number of  deaths would be' tremendously decreased.  Great Danes, mastiffs, St. Bernards,  Newfoundlands and one or two other  breeds could be made most useful, for  instance, to carry garden truck and  milk to customers. An English friend  writes us:  "I have relatives in Holland, and I  frequently pay visits to a town in the  north part of that country, The house  where I stay is next door to a baker's.  This baker has a dog which takes him  round the town twice a week. A draper, living about a stone's throw further  on, has a dog which takes his travelers  regularly on long rounds from village to  village, and he, too, has had the same  dog for some yeans now. But these  records are a_ nothing to the postman's  two dogs, who have drawn him on alternate days from Assen to Wlnschoten, a  distance of some twenty to twenty-two  miles, returning the same afternoon, for  the last seven or eight years, or perhaps more. There are many who would  not be able to follow their callings as  milk venders or small market gardeners  but for tho help of their doge."  The Dutch Societies for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals havo  long since got over the idea that It  is cruel to make such dogs work, On  the othor hand, they say the kindly  treated working dogs are by far hap-  ������ler and healthier than the idle dogs,  o they now get up working-dog exhibitions, and give prizes to the owners  whose dogs give evidence of the best  treatment,  vleve, and she opened the letter Immediately.  What a lovely, long letter it was���������  the first one they had ever had from  Auntie Wiggins!   For Auntie Wiggine  had   spent   many   years   abroad,   and   (  they had never so much as seen her   {  until   about   two   months   before   the   J  time of this story,- when a great big I  ship had brought her over' from Italy. ������������������!  And oh! how like a fairy godmother  she then seemed, with gifts for Helen  and gifts for Ben and gifts for Mar-/'  guerite. ��������������� ���������    ..' '  Since her arrival what good times \,  they had had listening to her fasci-  natTng~^toriesJ-j=soTrre~of~whreH'f,Ka:dT"  been born into print, and so been v  read by thousands of children who I  had not the happiness of owning, her f  as their Auntie Wiggins.  A week before this story begins she  had gone away to Walton Hills, but the  last thing she had said was:  "Now, Genevieve and Ben and Helen,  don't fail to write Auntie Wiggins a  letter some time this week."  "You will answer it,, will you?" they  hadasked.  "Indeed,  I shall!"    '  So they had written a letter���������Genevieve the flrst half, Ben the second  half and little Helen thi postscript.  And now here was Auntie Wiggins'  answer:  A SURPRISING LETTER  "Dear Genevieve, Ben and Helen:   ,-,  "lour letter received a warm welcome.  "But, my three deary dears, what  ailed your letter? I have struggled  through Chinese puzzles, but never,  never havo I had such a jumbled  letter to unjumble us thiB one from  you.  "And when I came to Helen's cunning little postscript I was most puzzled of all. But at last I made it  out, "SaC kFuL uV gLOvJOs AnBI.  AsktfT fuL uv KltTonS-sack full  of gloves and basket full of kittens."  "That wasn't what 1 printed!" interrupted Helen; "I didn't sny anything  about kittles 'n' gloves!"  "Never mind, deer," snid Genevieve,  "It's very queer and I don't understand;  but let's see what Auntie Wiggins say*  next."  "It's awfully queer," muttered Ben;  "but go on, Genevieve."  "Then I understood whnt Helen wns  sending me, for just thnn Mrs. Warner camo to toll me a large sack and  basket had come. There wns such a  inlawing in tho house, as if all the  oats In Walton Hills had come to sue  $' ie!    'Oh,   just   op������n  them,   please,      \  ���������''������������������ Irs. Wagner,' said I, 'and count the     i  .hings in them.'  "So in a few minutes Mrs Wagner  came and said, '500 pairs of gloves in  the sack and 250 kittens in the basket.'  " 'Dear me,' said I, 'that makes  1000 gloves! Four times as many  gloves as kittens! It's very kind of  Helen, but why die sne send so many  gloves? For I haven't lOOOhands, you '  know, Mrs. wagner.'

He  will give out a sentence, every word  of which begins with the same letter.  Each of you must repeat it after him.  Then he repeats this sentence, adding to it this time, however, another  sentence, the words of which all begin with another letter. You must repeat both sentences after htm correctly.  Any one making a mistake must  drop out of the game and watch for  errors in the remaining players.  As the players become fewer in  number, they must repeat the sentences after their leader more and  more rapidly and without a moment's  hesitation.

Here are some suggested sentences  which the leader might use:  "Four   fishermen   fishing  for   fiddlesticks."  -���������"Si3r-siippery-snakes������sl!pping-slowly_  southward."  "Nine  nautical  Norwegians nearing  neighboring Norway's narrows."  v'   "Ten   tiny,   toddling  tots  trying  to  train their tongues to trill."

All during July, Whitney progressed
to Mildred Mason's faror with the op*
proval of her Btnatl brother, Tom, a
consideration by no-means to be do-
Bplsed, when tbe cnrtrte of St. Jude'a
appeared on tJ>o scene and epolled It
all. The first Intimation of change in,
tho usual or46r of events came when
Mildred refused to play golf on Sun-
"When a person can play nfll the
week," she said, "I think he oughfto
make a dlfTerence 00 Sunday."
"But ft is my only opportunity to
play with you, and I spend my week
ends here for that sole purpose," pleaded Whitney. "1 cannot -understand
this sudden access of conscience."
Mildred, lopked offended, aud Whitney was about to apologize when Tom
slipped a hand through his arm.       fc
"Come and go around with me, Mr.
Whitney. Mildred Is a little morbid
Just now; but It won't last," aud asthey
went away together Tom explained.
"It Is that curate chap���he came out
here last Monday and spent tho week-
all the women are crazy about' bim.
Heaven knows what there Is about a
collar that buttons behind, but girls
always go down before It like ninepins." * ��� ' .'

"UiiSviiiiS do TOUA*ffi��^S.
to any one?"   Whitney's voice shook.
"Sure���stuck to Milly like a barnacle
to a lamppost  I thought when she
feaw, him play golf she'd break atway.
It was enonsb to make angels bawl."
"Did you say she was pleased with"���
"Couldn't drive six feet���made eleven
strokes and sis foozles to the first
green, then"���
'���But do "you think sho enjoyed"���
"Then putted out In five.  What do
you think of that?"
"It wus a hideously excruciating, revolting; spectacle! E|ld Miss .Mlldwtd
apfiear' Interested in"���
"Ho drove four balls litfo tho broot
and Instead of cussing liko a gentleman
ho said, 'Dear mo, what an cxanper-
utlng gnmer "  ' '
It was no uso trying to get any satisfaction from Tom. He talked of nothing but tbe curate's fooales and failures, nnd tlio only Information Whitney
obtained wns tlmt tho parson intended
to bo at Wlnilcllff every week during
tho reiunlntler of tho"summer,
The cost feiturdny Whitney found
Mildred raoaF than over en aim red by
the curate, Sho not only refused to
play golf Sunday, but read a book
called "Narrow Paths" nil tho evening.
Tom walked to tho station with Mr.
Whitney Monday morning and asked
If thoro was anything, ho'could do for
"Got rid of the foozling parson," eaW
Tom. "Ho uses his Irons llko a grave-
digger, anil ho has lost threo of my new
hnudmnde pneumatics,"
"I winh bo was a mlsslonwy," BlgbotJ
"In tbe cannibal Islands," added
Tho following Friday Whitney received n postal card with theso words:
"Plot thlckous. "Tako a vacation.
Whitney, panto stricken, went to

By August so many baardr-r.-? arrived

tage divided into bedroom:-, by thin

Whitney nnd Tom were re!*- c,:ted to
these? quarters, Tom's ruoiu Inilng he-,

Whitney p-.issed the tlmo playing
golf with Tom, who wns Rlnguhirlt u::-

he was languid nml dull, lie said tho

"I have hopes," said Tom.
That n^ght Whitney lay awuko with
oo aching tooth, i&e heard the curate's
bed creak as the poor fallow tossed
restkvv-sly. "Roller skating m hts^pnd,"
thought "VYhftiiey. Then he heart! Se-
ton pacing- back nnd f-iwtlv. Presently
ho appeared to try. sleeping again and
gave forth a gchtlo snore. Suddenly
he JBi,.rang "out of bed, threw open his
door, rushed madly through the hall *
nnd (hwu (he stairs. Whitney, alarmed,
chased after him. Reaching the garden, lie was horrified to pee Seton making', n full tilt straight for tbe lake.
Whltr.ey picked,up an. apple and threw
it, bitting Sefbn in the small of the
back. . He stopped and turned slcssvly
around. His pursuer^ was upon him in
an instant and, grappling tbe astonished cleric, threw and held him down.
"H:>Ip!   Murder!" he yelled.
"Shut up," said Whitney. "I've saved
your life."
"Why. it !a Mr. Whitney. What do
you mean?"
A young surgeon, capping near the
shore heard the cries and, seizing his'
eimes':!;ency outfit, ran to the spot
"What's the row?'vhe asked.

The curate's blood was up; he fought

The six weeks which was  ef Jack. Murray's vacation  too quickly, and lie made up his  mind to extend it two weeks longer.  Surely the firm by whom lie was employed could not be so very angry  with him for taking it upon himself  to do this, he was so valuable to  them. And when the time came to  set his face homeward, even thon he  would fain have tarried; but funds  had run low and he was obliged to  get back to business ngain. Itoger  Glendenning accompanied him as far  as Baltimore, and there they parted,  it being Roger's intention to remain  there a. week to settle his affairs.  And then he might go to South  America���������Africa; it- mattered little  enough to him where fate drifted him  on  the turbulent waters of life.  On the second day after his friend's  departure, quite mechanically he  bought one of the New York papers,  as was his custom in other days. His  exile amid the swamps of Louisiana,  where he had not seen one human  face, save that of his friend, for two  long and weary months, had seemed  to him like seven years, and he felt  a longing eagerness to know what  was going on in the world from  which he was banished for long  years, perhaps .forever. With wistful  eyes he devoured page after page. On  the  last    page  was  an  item     which  'caught.* acid held his attention. It  was an account of the recent, illness  of Judge Kneeland, narrating that a  serious conflagration had swept away  ail his property. Jn a few short  hours he had been reduced from a  wealthy man to a poor'one,. for there  had not" been7.one'dollar's worth of  insurance upon any of the property.  The shock had brought on paralysis,-  and  he had   been  forced    to    retire  "fronTOW^lOTrTa^  Roger Gleudcnning's heart gave a  groat throb. Ah! how his heart  throbbed with pity for Olive in that  dark hour! If he bad had a fortune;  how gladly would he have given her  every dollar of it; ay, his very life's  blood, every drop of it, Then, with  this train of'thoughts quite another  came to him which alarmed and worried him. With this terrible change  in her fortune, how long would his  brother Oscar, love her? His betrothed would be irksome to him, and he  would snap the slight chain of an  engagement asunder as ruthlessly as  ho would brush rtsi.de a cobweb from  his path, Ah! if he but, dared go to  New York in disguise and see Oscar, and plead with him, if ho-found  him weakening in his vows, to keep  his pledge and faith with hor! ' Ho  could readily believe that her beauty  had fascinated-him, but had sho possessed that alone, ho'1 quito believed  his brother would' havo passed hor  by carelessly enough.  Itoger was just about to closo tho  paper when another littlo item concerning the judge came under his eye,  and that was to the effect that  Judge Kneeland had entered his  daughter's horse, Judge Morrow* for  the great handicap race which was  to como off tho following day, and  all of tho old judge's hopes of retrieving his fallen fortunes lay in tho  issue.  Roger Glendenning bowed his hond  on his hands, and great tears gathered in his oyes. Little Judgo Morrow, the colt thnt Olive fairly idolized, lay ns a sncrifleo on tho altar  of her father's misfortune! Ho ruuli/.-  vd how it must have wrung Olive's  heart to consent to this, for since  the hour of his birth almost, she hnd  fed him lumps of sugar nnd petted  him with her own I'll if hands. Oik'h  her fathor hnd been offered quite a  Hum (or him, but, ho luul I'tntinrkod,  with a (wile, "Money could not buy  ' that. colt. IIo is my daughter's property, nnd she is almost, us fond of  him ns she i.s of mo, f often think."  And little Judgo Morrow was to run  in the great ra''*'! Ah! how ardently  he hoped that thn gallant littlo'Ci^lt  Would win a fortune for Olive!  He resolved suddenly that ho must  go to New York in time to got ovel*  to Brooklyn to soo thnt nice. It wits  n during thing to do, to walk blindly into tho pit yawning to receive  him. Ihit ns his heart nnd soul worn  there, his body might ns well bo nl-  of the windows. Jt was only a faint  hope, but he caught at it as a drowning man catches at a straw.  Up and down the length of the  street he paced, backward and forward past the hotel, until he grew  fearful lest he was attracting too  much attention. At length he grew  desperate and ventured within the  hotel odiee and called for breakfast.  A few moments later he was seated  in the dining-room. How he hoped  and prayed that Olive would enter  the room! He felt that if he could  feast his eyes on her face onco more  he would be willing, nay, glad to  wander olT somewhere and die. His  very soul yearned for just one glance,  with a longing that could not be appeased.  He lingered at the table as long as  he could find any possible excuse for  doing so. Then, when it was no longer wise to remain, arose slowly'and  quitted the room, wondering vaguely  if she had already breakfasted, or if  it had been served in her apartments.  He wished he dared make inquiry of  one of tho waiters ^yho was passing  through  the corridor;,.  While he was pondering over this,  Olive herself came slowly down the  wide ball, her long gown trailing after her -with a soft, lc|w rustle. She  passed him by so closely that thc  dark-brown dross-^fho wore brushed  his hand. She did not raise her eyes  to his face, or she would have been  startled at the burning, despairing  eyes looking with pitiful intensity into her own. She vanished at the ond  of the cool, dim, wide hall, and the  light and sunshine seemed to go  with her, leaving the world cold,  gray, and desolate. He wished he  could die then and there; he was so  bitterly unhappy.  He was among the first waiting to  be admitted, when the gates of the  race track were thrown open. Quite"  mechanically he walked down the  track to the stables, with wistful  eyes strained to catch one glimpse of  Judge Morrow, the gallant little animal that was to win or lose a fortune for Olive. He passed the stable  with slow feet. Judge Morrow was  standing at the door, surrounded by  an admiring group, as were all the  rest of tho noble steeds. Suddenly  the colt lifted his head and listened  He had caught the sound of familiar  footsteps; he saw him, and before  those about him could realize what  he was about to do, he had*i>lunged  suddenly forward and reached Glen-,  doniiing's side, whinnying in a manner that quite amused those about  him.  Glendenning drew the colt's faco  down close to his own und rested  his head against it. Ah! what true,  what beautiful instinct told tho animal that, despite his disguise, this  was his old friend Glendenning!  Thoy took the horso away from  him quickly, remarking, as they noted tho shabby clothes of tho dark,  Italian-appearing, slender young  man, that ho had probably taken  care of the colt some time in tho  past, turning and asking him if this  wero not so. Glendenning nodded,  thinking that tho best way to end  tho questioning.  , In a vory few moments all tho riders, booted and spurred, camo hurrying out from thoir quarters in response to a sharp clang of a bell,  and in a trice had mounted their  horses, only awaiting the signal to  be oft liko arrows from tho bow.  Suddenly, at tho very Inst momont of timo, Judge Morrow's rider  leaned forward heavily in thu saddle, swnyod un instant like a rood in  the wind, thon droppod heavily to  the greensward. In an instant tho  wildest confusion reigned,  "Judgo Morrow will hnvo to bo  fitriekeii from tho nice," crlod a  Hi'ore. of voices, triumphantly, but  adding:''".It will bo too bad i'or the  young girl who owiih the nniinttl; It  mny mean the loss oif n fortune to  hor,"  At this Oli'tidennlng sprung forward,  trembling  in every  limb,  "Let me ride him J" bo cried,  hoarsely, "Let mu take the plai'o ot  tlio mun who was to havo ridden  Judge Mwi'i'iiw. ,1 will win tho raco  with him, or die in tho uttymptl"  i.->   ci.'Od   j-iV(wn������'f>  ���������would  completely  n   dlufiilwo     which  conceal   his  irlent-  ity. ;\  Before nightfall this was iiii'om-  pllshed, and with a Htrango feeling  of lioM-lii-nrti'thti'SM which he was  whnlivi/mnhlft to account for, Kogor  (JloniM'nhing boarded the midnight  r-xproAw. He took a sleeper, and "it  cost him nearly nil the money his  friend hud loaned him.

She did i  not even observe the rider, her gaze  was riveted so intently upon the  horse. I  Suddenly he saw her turn and  whisper to a young girl sitting beside her, and he recognized her companion at once���������-sweet, gentle, fair-  haired Nannie, Olive's true littlo  friend. And even in that moment the  thought came to him., bow loyal  Nannie was to her friend; even the  loss of Olive's fortune made no dif-j  fe.renco to her, and in his heart ho  blessed Nannie for that quality of  sweet and noble sympathy which endeared her so to those who know  her He looked anxiously about for  his brother Oscar, as he grew a little more accustomed to discerning  faces at that distance, and as he  came toward them. No, Oscar was,  not with Olive, To the right of her,  and leaning over Nannie, his fiancee,  was Mr.' Armstrong, his face and  keen, dark eyes all aglow, watching  Judge Morrow eagerly, as though he  were mentally summing up his  chances of success. ,  Glendenning had no time to lose in  further observation. His whole attention must be absorbed by his horse,  for now they had reached the grand  stand, and, amid the wild cheering,  the riders were attempting to form  the animals into line. This was at  last accomplished. There was an instant of expectancy, then the flag  dropped, and away they flew down  the curved road like swallows, the  gay colors of the riders flashing in  the sunshine, and the great race had  begun..  For a moment it is one pell-mell  rush. On, on they fly, like giant  greyhounds from t.he leash, down the  gray track, until they are but slow-  moving specks in the distance. Then  on they come again,' thundering past  the grand stand at a maddening  pace, with Pessara in* the lead, a  dozen horses dashing like the    wind  at his heels, and Judge Morrow���������  poor Judge Morrow!���������fully a score  "of yards behind. A mad shout goes  up for Pessara. But the.' wiser ones  notice that Judge Morrow is running well within himself, and that  there is game in the gallant little  horse that the rider is holding back*  with a steady hand, and there is an  answering shout, "Judge Morrow!  Judgo Morrow!" c  White to the lips, Olive   Kneeland  -sits���������and���������watches������������������Nannie's���������hand-  creeps   confidingly   to hers,   cold as  lumps of ice, arid clasps them gently.  "All of the horses show signs of  the terrible strain���������all save your  little Judge Morrow, He is fresh as  a daisy," murmurs Harry Armstrong, hopefully. But Olive does not  answer; her lips are mute. To see  little Judge Morrow running at that  frightful pace almost stuns her. She  feels like sobbing aloud, but the great  .crowd about her hold her in check.  Again tho gallant steeds are specks  in the .distance. Now they pass the  curve ttyd'aro on the homestretch,  "dashing , swiftly on to the finish.  Nearer, nearer sounds the thunder ot  their oncoming hoofs. Thirty thousand people grow mad with wild intensity as thoy dash swiftly, steadily  onward. They aro but a hundred  yards from tho grand stand now,  with Pessara still in the van. But  the othor horses havo dropped further and further behind���������all savo littlo Judgo Morrow, who gains steadily, steadily, inch by inch, until ho  passes those before him, and now  thoro is but a ribbon of daylight  between himself and the great Pessara.  Tho excitement grows Intense.  Nerves are thrilling liko stricken  wires as down tho long lane of whito,  strained faces dash tho racers almost  with tho rapidity of lightning. Every  one risos to his feet in the mad hopo  of catching a. full view of tho flyers,  and tho air rocks, roois, and trembles  with tho hoarse, delirious cries of  thirty thousand throats, hats Ball  into the air liko shoals ol fish, and  faces are whlto as death.  lT0 JMB CO IVTfNnKn.?

ON OCEAN'S BED.  KILLED THE LAUGH.  What Becomes of Ship. "Which Sink <l  to the Bottom of the Sea.  What becomes of the ship that sinks  in midocean? If It is of wood it takes,  in the flrst place, considerable time for  it to reach the bottom. In a hundred  or more fathoms of water a quarter of  an hour will elapse before the ship  reaches bottom. It sinks slowly, and  wheu the bottom is reached it falls  gently Into the soft, oozy bed, with no  crash or breaking,  Of course if it is laden with pig iron  or corresponding substances or if it is  an iron ship lt sinks rapidly and sometimes strikes the bottom with such  force as to smash in pieces. Once  sunken a ship becomes tbe prey of the  countless inhabitants of the ocean,  They swarm over and through the  great boat and make it their homo.  Besides this they cover every inch of  the boat with a thick layer of lime.  This takes time, of course, and when  one generation dies another continues  the work until finally the ship is so  ��������� laden with heavy incrustations, corals,  sponges and barnacles that if wood  the creaking timbers fall apart and  slowly but surely are absorbed in tho  waste at the sea bottom.  j Iron vessels are demolished more  quickly than those of wood, which  may last for centuries. The only metals that withstand the chemical action  of the waves are gold and platinum,  and glass also seems unaffected. No  matter how long gold may be hidden  in the ocean, it will always be gold  ' when recovered, and this fact explains  the many romantic and adventurous  searches after hidden submarine treasures lost in shipwrecks.  ST. HELENA.  The   Transformation   of   Thin   Once  , Barren Volcanic "Waste.  | St. Helena was a barren volcanic  waste at the time Napoleon was sent  there. The Englishmen were there,  however, to stay and for duty, and,  though they had a bard scramble for  every drop of water they used, they  , set about a beginning of making something grow toward sustaining life, or  at least modifying its conditions.  Gradually, by slow degrees, but surely,  their efforts were successful.   Kindly  -nature���������requiEes_but^little~enCQu_ragft:,  ment, and tbe dews fell and crystallized, and the herbage and shrubbery  spread, and little trees took root and  shed their seed, and the mountain in  the long course of years became largely covered, until at last this one time  waterless heap of waste products of a  lifeless volcano became able to provide  millions upon millions of gallons of  water, which is stored In Its caverns,  for the ships that pass to and from tho  Cape of Good Hope and to Australia,  and beneath the shades of umbrageous  terraces, high up in tho cool air, the  Invalided soldier from tropical Africa  and India and the orient finds a restoring sanitarium which has brought  back to health and lite many a weary  soul and stricken body. Truly there Is  magic In the rain and healing in the  forests!  The Story ot the Prayer Io Roaalnl'a  "Moie  In Egitto."  The sublime prayer of the Hebrews,  when preparing to cross the Red sea,  ls, perhaps, one of the most solemn  and majestically grand compositions  that can be found in the choral repertory, yet, at the same time, simple to  a degree. This was an afterthought  of the composer and was not introduced until the second season of the  production of "Mose In Egitto" at Naples.  The opera then, as now, terminated  with the passage of the Ited sea by  Ihe Israelites; but, although the audiences were entranced with tlie music,  they invariably saluted the passage of:  the Red sea with peals of laughter,  owing to want of skill of the machinist and scene painter, who coutrlved  to reuder this portion of the affair superbly ridiculous and brought down  the curtain amid uproarious mirth.  Rossini exhibited hie usual indifference,'but poor Toltola, the poet, was  driven nearly crazy by this unwelcome termination of hi3 literary labors and Intensely chagrined at tbe  Idea of so sacred a subject exciting  laughter. This lasted throughout the  first season; the nCxt it was reproduced with similar brilliant success  (on the first night), for the music* and  similar laughter at the end of the opera. The next day, while Rossini was  Indulging In bis usual habit of lying  in bed aud gossiping with a room full  of friends, In rushed Tottola, In a most  excited state, crying out:  "Eviva, I have saved the third act!"  "How?" asked Rossini lazily.  "Why," replied Tottola, "I have  written a prayer for the Hebrews before crossing the dreadful Red sea,,  and I did it all in one hour."  "Well," said Rossini, "if it'has taken,  you an hour to write this prayer I will  engage to make the music for it in a  quarter of the time. Here, give me-  pen and ink," saying which he jumped!  out of bed, and in ten minutes he had!  composed Vie music without the aidl  of a piano and while bis friends wero  laughing and talking around him.:  Thas, owing to the blundering ignorance of n stage carpenter and scene-'  painter, the world is indebted for th������.  most sublime preghiera ever penned.  Night came. Tbe audience prepared  -to-laugh~as-usual_W-hen_the_Red,seai.  scene came, but when the new prayer  commenced deathy silence prevailed,  every note was listened to' with rapt  attention, and on its conclusion tho  entire audience rose en masse and  cheered for several minutes, nor did  they ever again laugh at the passage  of the Red sea.

In order to prove its power of discriminating between colors the scientist Dahl made some interesting tests  upon a monkey. He colored some  sweets with a certain colored dye and  some bitter substances with tliat of  another color. After a few attempts  the monkey learned to leave without  even tasting those articles of food colored with the dye which indicated bitter tasting substances and seized at  once upon those which indicated  sweets. Varying the experiments sufficiently he found that the monkey distinguished all the different colors readily, save only dark blue. Many savage  tribes cannot distinguish dark blue  from black and even children distinguish this color later than all others-  YOU REALLY MUST TRY  CEYLON  GREEN  Same flavor as Japan, only perfectly free from adulterations of any kind.

CAMPBELL'S BAKER'  ��������� ��������� ���������Mill        ���������     Jill  .3for25e  ���������aniberfaiid=  "Seymour narrows must be bridge  ed'' is tbe title of an article in tbe  Coloni-st of the 1st inat; It goes on  lo give iu detail, tho time���������honoured scheme for building 5 difficult  and expensive bridges, for building a road 50 miles along Bute Inlet shores, which would be for the  moot part tunneled through solid  rock, aud hard rock at that. But  it does not tell that from the head  of Bute the grade is exceedingly  stiff to the height of land, or that,  in other words, the distance from  sea level at the Inlet head to tho  height of land ift so short that the  grade is very .teep, or that in  building a road along tbe Inlet, it  1b impopeible to gain height, and  that sea level if virtually kept until after leaving tho head. It does  not give any alternative route, and  the general reader must perforce  believe that a railway from Seymour Narrows aeroas the Valdez  group of Inlands and via Bute In-  jet is the only possible way of connecting Vancouver's Inland with  the Continent. Yet only 40 miles  further north, theeontiguout* Bhoros  of Inland and Mainland approach  oaoh other as close a* 3 milo***, in a  plane where n R������eam ferry oo aid op  erate buccj-sa/ul.y every day io tlie  year, and whero tho liicUnoe from  roa level to buight of land it four  times* that y t Bu.c In lei, nr roughly  speaking, GO imU<t.< an again-H 15  miles at Hutu, Tin- route waa  pointed out emne wwfcs ago in the  column*** af Uii* p&p^r, and is be*  lic*."^ V"* the ������������'H*ftr let  hn    %%rint{f%.  ul o I, .>u. iti'i.ilt-'i.y i-s^ja1 ���������<.*,'! 5^-  ���������igineeife nnd wootiamwn of note, aa  well as from personal knowledge  and ob-orvationB.
