FOR BREATH  In Asthma and Bronchitis is Promptly  Relieved by  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine  The wonderful success of Dr.Chase'p  Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine in  relieving the terrible paroxysms oi  asthma and the hard, dry cough C  bronchitis, and in positivelj curing  these ailments, is the best proof u.ai  it is far more than a mere "cough  mixture."  This well-known medicine is composed of a number of simple yet powerful ingredients, which are of proven  value in the cure of diseases of the  throat, bronchial tubes and lungs. It  is prepared by a long and tedious process, that cannot be carried out in  Ulling a prescription at a drug store.  The ingredients are always fresh  nnd of the best quality obtainable.for  the reputation which Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine has  built up in years of success must be  maintained by every bottle that is  sold.  Mrs. Richard Withrow, Shubenaca-  lie, Hants Co., N- S-, writes:��������� "I iyive  jsed Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed  and Turpentine with good success.  My second daughter was troubled  with bronchitis from the age of three  weeks. Oftentimes I thought she  would choke to death. The several  remedies we sot did not seem to be  of much use, but the first dose of Dr.  Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine brought relief and further  treatment made a thorough cure.  This trouble used to come back from  time to time, but the cure is now permanent.  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and  Turpentine has saved us many doctor  bills, and I would not be without it in  the house for many times its cost.

But, hello," ns thero  camo tho dull thud of a full nnd then  a faint call for liolp, "somebody's  droppod from ono of those npplo trees  shove the hank. Hurry, follows;"  As thoy cllmbod tho bank Uio call  was repeated, sounding very near, A  fow moments lator thoy found nn old  man lying dowu upon his back under  tho first treo,  "Much hurt?" asked Catlin solicitously.  "N-no, I guess not," slowly and with  a long indrawn broatb of pain. "Just  shook up considerable, I think, without nny bonos broken. But I expect  you follows will have to bolp uio  homo "  "Of course." Catlin looked around.  A short ladder wiih leaning ngalnst tlio  treo. "That'll do vory nicely," ho snid.  "Hero, fellows, gather up ull those  empty sacks nnd spread them on tho  loddor tn mnko It snnro comfortable.  Now, sir," whon all was ready, "we'll  lift you as gently ns possible,"  "Oh, I don't mind a littlo pain," tho  old man answered, grimacing, however,  whon tliey iff fed him to tlio ladder.  "It's tlto apples that's worrying uio  most. I've beon sending thom off to  one firm, at nbout this time, for forty-  nine years.   This would make fifty,"  "Tbo firm will certainly overlook the  slip, tlien," said Cstllu coiiMJijuly.  Tbe old man's face en-u^il into a  smile.   "I know, I know." ho rvp'Wti.  ������������������The? won't mind, nnd ib������ money part  does not matter. But when a man nas  done a thing forty-nine years it's hard  for him to miss the fiftieth. I don't  suppose I ought to have tackled the  apples alone. Hello, there comes Ger-  ty.  She heard me call, I guess."  A tall girl, with her face hidden by a  sunbonnet, was hurrying through the  orchard toward them.  "Oh, nnele," she cried, with very  much distress in her voice, "it is you!  I thought I heard a cry, but was not  sure. Is���������is lt very bad?"  "No| so very, I think," the old man  answered. "Just a shakeup. Fortu  nately these young men -frere ne������r.  They will carry uie to the house."  As she bent ovor him the girl allowed her sunbonnet to fall back. Cat  lin was directly in front of her, and he  caught his breath a little at what the  act revealed. The girl was not merely  pretty, as he had at flrst thought; she  was beautiful.  An hour later the three were standing outxuud*er one of the trees on the  lawn.  "I tell you, fellows," Catlin was saying, "it's our duty to stay and pick the  apples for the old man. It's too bad few  him to miss the fiftieth year."  "Too bad for you to miss another  chance of looking into Miss Gerty's  eyes, you mean," suggested Burke.  "Perhaps," composedly. "They are  certainly worth looking into. But we  can pick two days and still have time  to reach Aunt Beulali's on the date set.  The trout fishing doesn't matter."  "All right, Catlin," Burke laughed.  "I don't mind staying. But you had  better keep your mind on the multi-ess  and leave me to talk with Miss Gerty."  Two days later they stood under the  same tree. The apples had been picked  and barreled and shipped. Two bicycles were leaning against the tree, apparently ready for departure. The  third was missing. Catlin looked cool  and composed; the others were plainly  annoyed.  "You can give that letter to Aunt  Beulah," Catlin was saying to Burke.  "It tells her the multi-ess business is  off; She will look after you all right  and give you the good time,as scheduled. You might add of your own accord that you left me well."  "I'll tell ber you are working on a  farm as a commou laborer," grumbled  Burke. "But, first, I've got a good  _mindjto���������goJn_and_tfiILthfi_oJcLmaa-und,  Miss Gerty just what you are���������a wolf  in sheep's clothing."  "Oh,,no, you haven't," smiled Catlin.  "I've known you too long, Burke. You  couldn't do a thing like that if you  tried. Well, goodby!"  Four days later a letter came to Catlin. It read:  My Dear Boy���������You're a fool. And after  the way I raised you too. But it doesn't  s6 much matter now. Miss Claflln will  not come for several weeks. You will g-et  well by that time.  Catlin's letter ln answer a week aft:  erward read:  My Dear Aunt���������There's no chance whatever of my getting well. I haven't spoken  yet, but I begin to seo it in her eyes, Gerty Is the sweetest girl in the world. I'm  stopping with her uncle, Richard Parks���������  but perhaps Burke told you.  Six days later:  My Dear Boy���������You're a prodigy, with a  cat's faculty of sticking on your feet.  Miss Claflln's name Is Gertrude, and hor  uncle is Richard Parks. She wrote thut  he had met with some kind of accident  and that she would remain with him a  few weeks longer.  Catlin's reply, throe days later:  My Dear Aunt���������I discovered her last  name the day before your letter arrived.  I asked her, arid she said yes. We will be  with you the flm of the month.  Had It All Planned.  In tho early days of lotteries in England to dream a numbor was always  looked on as the luckiest of omens. On  ono occasion a footman having plainly soon some numbers in a dream  spent the whole of twenty years' savings in purchasing two lottery tickets  bearing his lucky dream numbers, nnd  when Uio tickets proved blanks, we  lenrn, "after a few melancholy days  ho put an ond to his life." In his  box was found tho following plan of  tho manner in which ho should spend  tho ������5,000 prize, which his mistress  preserved ns a curiosity:  "As soon as I have received the  money I will marry Grace Towors,  but as she has boon cross and coy I  will use her as a sorvant Evory  morning sho shnll get uio a mug of  strong boor, with toast, nutmeg and  sugar in tt; thon I will sloop until 10,  after which I will hnve a large sack  posset.

If I am in  a good humor and Grnce behaves herself, she shall sit down with me."  of his students will vary greatly, depending on the subject taught and the  attractive power of the teacher. Incomes of $5,000 a year and even larger  sums are received in tbe larger universities by certain well known men. Taking into account the fact that the foreign professor has a life place, that his  widow and minor children receive pensions, he is better off financially and  is far more free from the anxieties  which come with modest income than  his American brother, whose nominal  pay is higher.���������Henry S. Pritchett in  Atlantic.  Worth of a Prlneiple.  It is indeed a high day in the human  story when a great principle reaches  its hour. For ages it. may have been  working silently along the subterranean channels of the world's life. At  times it has for a brief moment shown  itself above the surface, only to be  hunted back again with scoff and insult. But it Is already In the blo^d  and will, by and br. mount to tne  brain's throne. When the appointed  time is come the idea creates its man,  and the credential of his authority is  the echo of his word in every soul.  Heir  By  FRANCIS A. COREY  Copyright. 1005, by F. A.

Copyright questions are grave enough  nowadays, but they no longer threaten  to end in war, as in the case of St. Co-  lumba, the Irishman who settled in  Iona converted north Britain and is  commemorated on June 9. He had a  passion for fine manuscripts and copies  of them and among others copied a  certain Latin psalter belonging to an  Irish abbot whereupon King Diarmaid  condemned Columba at Tara ruling  that "to every book belongs its copy, as  to every cow its. calf." Columba .appealed against the verdict in the practical form, of inciting his kinsmen to  revolt, and they defeated Diarmaid in  the battle of the Psalter. The book is  claimed to be the one which in a silver  cover was carried into battle by the  O'Donnells during more than a thousand years and may be seen at the  Royal Irish academy today.���������London  Chronicle.

The sacred black stone of the Man-  ctiu dynasty of Chinese in Mukden is  the center of the universe, according to  old Chinese superstitious, and added  vcncrability comes to"Mukden from the  graves of the emperors near by.  The Do-ring in Lassa, Tibet, Is another center of the universe, which, according to the Tibetan priests, Is shaped exactly like tho shoulder blade of a  sheep. All distances are measured  from it, and it is very sacred.  Another center Is the kaaba, ln Mecca, a dirty black stone let Into tho wall  of the most sacred mosque and polish,  ed every yoar by the lips of thousands  of worshipers. The Arabic word for  stone, "hagar," appears In Scriptural  writings as a proper name.

Comforting,  Throwing a fresh slick on the fire,  Dick Vance gazed approvingly about  him. The room which the dancing  flames lighted up had a cozy, homelike  air delightfully in contrast with his  cheerless lodgings in Paris. At last he  had one little spot within four walls  that he could call his own.  As he stretched his legs comfortably  to the blaze he was still tiygliug with  the thrill of amazement he had felt  wh*n informed by tlie village Lawyer  during their brief interview that afternoon that he was Robert Chilton's'heir;  "The estate consists of this old house,  which has been in the Chilton family  for a hundred years, and $30,000 in  stocks and bonds," Mr.. Blackstone had  said.  "And it's mine, really mine, to do  what^ please with?" Dick asked eagerly.,  "Nobody, can dispute your legal right  to It," was the stiff response. "Chilton  took care to make a will that would  ho'd. The Justice of the bequest is  quite another thing."  Although three hours had gone by  sir,x:e then, Dick still almost doubted  his great fortune. How often he had  gone with empty pockets and nothing  to eat!  One blissful thought made his heart  let'.p. He could marry Alice Dale!  Tbey. had waited two years because of  thoir poverty. There was now no occasion for delay.  The wind whistled around the house,  driving great gusts of snow against  the windows. Dick laughed at its futile rage and stirred the fire afresh.  In fancy he saw Alice sitting on the  other side of the hearth, one pretty  pink check in her palm. How graciously she would rule over tho house!  He would-hasten to her the first thing  on the morrow with the wonderful  news.,  The doorbell rang. Mr. Robbins, the  -gpa-yJiaiiied-ministeE_whb-had~officiated  him. He would be a fool to -jbcucat*  in her favor. No doubt she _eserv#t  all tbat had befallen her, And e\&K  worse.  Presently his thoughts turP^-5 to Alice. She had forbidden him tQ -������vrite''ta  her. He should be free, she had said,  since they would be unable \o marf?  for years, if ever. Not,a.line had priced between them for months,- But ha  felt no misgivings. Sbe loved jjlta; sha  would remain true.  "How I wish it were mortfi*i������ that t  might go to her," he said aloh-i.

Shaking the snow  from his great coat, he sat down heavily before the fire, his face wearing a  stern expression.  "Mr. Vance, how long had you  known the deceased?" he abruptly Inquired. !  "About six months, sir.'1  "You met abroad?"  "Yes, sir���������in Paris. Mr. Chilton fell  seriously 111 at one of the hotels. He  wns alone, and I took care of him. He,  was pleased to think that my nursing  saved his life."  "You traveled with him afterward?"  "I did. I was a poor medical student. I had just tnken my degree. I  could act as courier and also keep  careful watch over his bodily health."  Dick smiled pleasantly, but tho clergyman's faco grew harder than before.  "Did be ever speak to you of his  family?"

Looking at tho young man over his  spectacles, Mr. Bobbins said gravely:  "Then you aro not aware that Mr.  Chilton left a daughter and a grandchild?"  Dick turned pale, and all at once  thoro was a curious pounding ln his  ears.  "Nol It simply can't bol Ho would  have told mo"-  "It HceniH thnt ho did not.

I'.efore turning in he  nsked ine to kneel and say my prayer  as 1 had done every evening at. the feet  of my .mother. I remember clearly  kneeling before my old companion and  hearing the echo of my small voice  tliere in the dark and lonely woods.  I remember, too, and eveiV'more clearly, how he bent his head and covered  his eyes in that brief moment. I had a  great dread of darkness and imagined  much evil of the forest, but somehow  I had no fear if he were near me. "Wher  we had fixed the lire and lain down foi  the night on the fragrant hemlock and  *wi ��������� ry T\  It was a big boss.  covered ourselves with th,e shawl,  Uncle Eb lay on one side of me and old  Fred on the other, so I felt secure indeed. The night had many voices there  in the deep wood. Away in the distance I could hear a strange, wild cry,  and I asked what it was, and Uncle  Eb whispered back, " 'S n loon." Down  the side of the mountain a shrill bark  rang in the timber, and that was a fox  according to my patient oracle.' Anon  we heard the crash and thunder of a  falling tree nnd a murmur that followed in the wnko of the last echo.  "Big tree fallln'," snid Uncle Eb nu  he lay gaping. "It has t' break a wny  t' tho ground, an' it must hurt. Did  ye notice how tho woods tremble? IU  wo wns up abovo them we could see  tho hole thet tree hed made. Jes' like  nn open grave till the others hev filled  it with their tops."  My ears had gone deaf with drowsiness when n quick stir in tho body of  Undo Eb brought me bnck to my  MnsoR. II* was up on bis elbow listening, nna the nrolignt hnd sunk to ft  glimmer, Fred Iny shivering nml growling bosldo mo. 1 could hear no otlior  sound.  "Bo still," snid Uncle Eb ns ho boxed  tlio dog's emu Then ho roue nml begun to stir the Uro nnd lay on more  wood. As iho flntnc leaped nml threw  lis light Into the treo tops n shrill cry  like the scroiim of a frightened woman,  only louder anil more terrlblo to hour,  brought mo to my foot crying, I knew  tin; source of It wns nonr uk and run to  Uncle Kb In n IVnrful panic:.

Wo were both thirsty and started off on rough footing wiili-iut stopping to eat. We climbed and crawled  for hours, it seemed to me. and 'everywhere the fallen tree trunks were heaped" in'our way. Uncle Eb sat down on  one of thom awhile to rest.  "Like the bones o' the dead," said ba  as he took a chew of tobacco and picked at the rotten skeleton of a fallen  tree. We were both pretty well out of  breath and of hope also, if I remember  rightly, when we .rested again under  the low hanging boughs of a basswood  for a bite of luncheon. Uncle bib opened the little box of honey and spread  some, of it on our bread and butter. Iu  a moment I noticed that half,a dozen  bees had lit in the open box.  "Lord Harry, here's honeybees!" said  he as he covered the box so as to  keep them in and tumbled everything  else into the basket. "Make haste now,  Willie, and. follow me with all yer  might," he added. ���������''...  In a minute he let out one of the bees  and started running in the direction it  flew. It went but a few feet and thou  rose into the tree top.  "He's goin' t' git up into the open  air," said Uncle Eb. "But I've got his  bearin's. an' I guess he knows the way  all right."  We took the direction indicated for a  fewr minutes, and then Uncle Eb let out  another prisoner. The bee flew off a  little way and then rose in a slanting  courso to the tree tops. He showed us,  however, that we were looking the  right way.   '  "Them little fellers hev got a good  compass," said Uncle Eb as we follow-  ed the line of the bees. "It p'ints home  ev'ry time an' never makes a mistake."  We went farther this time before releasing another. He showed us that we  had borne out of our course a little, and  as we turned to follow there were half  a dozen bees flying around the box as if  begging for admission.  "Here they are back ag'in," said Uncle Eb, "au' they've told a lot o' their  cronies 'bout the man an' the boy with  honey."  At length one of them flew over our  heads and back in the direction we had  come from.  "Ah, ha," said Uncle Eb, "it's a bee  tree, an' we've passed it, but I'm goin*  t' keep lettln' 'em In an' out. Never  heard o' a swarm o' bees goin' fur  awny, an* 60 wo nius' be lieur the  clenrin'."  In n little while we let one go that  took n road of Its own. The others had  gone back over our bends. This one  boro off to the right in front of us, anil  wo followed. I wns riding In the basket nnd wns flrst to soo tho light of the  open through tho tree tops. But I  didn't know whnt it mount until I  heard tho henrty hurrnh of Unolo Eb.  We had como to smooth footing In a  grove of maples, and tbe clean trunks  stood up ns straight ns a grnulte column, Presently we camo out upon  wldo fields of corn nnd clover, nnd ns  we looked back upon tho grove It bad  a rounded front, and I think of It now  as the vestibule of tho grent forest.

And then she held me to her  breast and nearly smothered me and began to hum a bit of an old song.  "Yer full o' mother love," said her  husband as he sat down on the grass  a moment. "Lost her only baby, an'  the good Lord has sent no other. I  swan, he has got purty eyes. Jes* as  blue as a May flower. Ain't ye hungry?  Come right in, both o' ye, an' set down  t' the table with us."  They made room for us, and we sat  down between the bit re elbows of the  hired men. I remember my eyes -came  only to the top of the table, so the  \',0rp7in-n, ch?"  good woman brought the family Bible,  and, sitting on that firm foundation, I  ate my dinner of salt pork and potatoes  and milk gravy���������a diet as grateful as it  was familiar to my taste.  "Orphan, ehV" said the man of the  bouse, looking down at me.  "Orphan," Uncle Eb answered, nodding his head.  "God fearin' folks?"  "Best in tho world," said Uncle Eb.  "Want t'  bind  'im   out?" the man  asked.  "Couldn't spare 'im," said Uncle Eb  decisively.        ���������    ,  "Where ye goin'?"  Uncle Eb hesitated, groping for an  aiisweiH-Tl-suppose,-that-w*:ould-do~no.  violence to our mutual understanding.  "Goin' t' heaven," I ventured to say  presently, an answer that gave rise to  conflicting emotions at the table.  "That's right," said Uncle Eb, turning to me and patting my head.  "We're on the road t' heaven, I hope,  an* ye'll see it some day, sartln sure,  if ye keep in the straight road and be a,  good boy."  After dinner the good woman took  off my clothes and put me in bed while  she mended them, I went asleep then  and did not awake for a long time.  When I got up at last, she brought a  big basin of water and washed me  with such motherly tenderness in voice  and manner that I have never forgot-  teu it. Uncle Eb lay sleeping on the  lounge, and when she had ��������� finished  dressing me Fred and I went out to  piny in the garden. It was supper  time in a little while, and then again  tho woman winded the shell and the  men came up from the field, We sat  down to eat with tbem, as we bad dono  at noon, and Uncle Eb consented to  spend the night after some urging. He  helped them with the milking and as  I stood beside him shot a Jot of the  warm white flood into my mouth tbat  tickled lt so I ran away laughing,  The milking dono, I sat oa Uncle  Eb's knee in tbe dooryard with all the  rest of that houiohold, bearing many  tales of the wilderness aud of robbery  ond murder on Pnrndiso road. I got  the impression that it was a country  of unexampled wickedness and ferocity  ln men and animals. Ono man told  about tho ghost of Burnt bridge���������how  tho brldgo hud burnt one afternoon  mid how a certain traveler In the dark  of the night, driving dowu the hill  ubovo It, foil to his deuth nt the brink  of tho culvert.

An' they're the purtiest crittei  alive an' the spriest au' the mos' graceful."  "Men are the mos' terrible of all crit-  tors, an' the meanest," said Uncle Eb.  "They're the only critters that kill fei  fun."  "Bedtime," said our host, rising pres*  ently. "Got t' be up early 'n the morn-  fu'."  We climbed a ladder to tho top flooi  of the cabin with the hired men, ol  whom there were 4wo. The good lady  of the bottle had made a bed for us ob  the floor, and I remember Fred cama  up the ladder, too, and lay down bo*  Bide us. Uncle Eb was up with the  men in the morning, and at breakfast  time my hostess came and woke me  with kisses and helped me to dress.  When we were about going she brought  a little wagrfi out of the cellar that  bad been a plaything of her dead boy  and said I could have it. This, wonderful wagon was just the thing foi  the journey we were making. When  I held the little tongue in my band I  was halfway to heaven already. It  had four stout wheels and a beautiful  red box. Her brother had sent it all  the way from Now York, and it had  stood so long in the cellar it was now  much in need of repair. Uncle Eb  took it to the tool shop in the stable  and put It in shipshape order and made  a little pair of -thills to go in place of  the tongue. Then he made a big flat  collar and a back pad out of the leather in-old boot logs and rigged a pair of  tugs' out' of. two pieces of rope. Old  Fred was quite cast down when he  stood in harness between the shafts.  He waited patiently to have his,collar fitted; he had grinned and panted  nnd wagged his tail with no suspicion  of the serious and humiliating career  -he-was-entering-uponr���������Now^he-stobd-  with a sober face, and his aspect was'  full of meditation. .  "You flghtin'.bound!" said Uncle'El).  "I hope this '11 improve yer character "t  Fred tried to sit down wheu Uncle  Eb tied a leading rope to his collar.  When he heard the wheels rattle and  felt the pull of the "wagon he looked  back at it and growled a little and  started to run. Uncle Eb shouted  "Whoa!" and held hlra back, and then  tho dog got down on his belly and  trembled until we patted his head and  gave him a kind word. He seemed to  understand presently and came along  witb a steady stride. Our hostess met  us at the gate, and the look of her face  when she bade us goodby arid tucked  some cookies into my pocket bas always lingered in my memory and put  in me a mighty respect for all women, The sound of her voice, the  team, the waving of her handkerchief  as we went away aro among tho things  that bave- made me what I am.  We stowed our packages in the wagon box, and I walked a few miles and  tben got into the empty basket. Fred.  tipped his load over once or twice, but  got a steady gait in tbo wny of industry after awhile and a more cheerful  look. We had our dinner by tho roadside on tbe bank of a brook an bour or  so after raldday and came to a little village about sundown. As wo were near-  ing it thero was some excitement among  tbe dogs, and one of tbem tackled Fred,  He wont Into battle vory promptly, the  wagon jumping and rattling until it  turned bottom up, He-enforced by Uncle Eb's enne, be soon saw the heels of  bis aggressor and stood growling savagely.

In paying for It Uncle Eb took a package out  of his trousers pocket to get his change,  It was tl-Kl In a red handkerchief,  and I remember it looked to bo about  tbe size of bis fist, Ho was putting it  back when It fell from his hand heavily, and I could hear the chink of coin  as It struck, One of the mon who sat  near picked it up and gave it bnck to  Ulus, A.

How a Boy and  Girl Can Produce a  Clever Little SBiow.  Did you ever see any one write his  name with flame on a piece of paper  without burning anything? The fire  seems to travel over the sir.-face until  the letters are all outlined, and then  it goes out. It looks very weird indeed,  especially if the lights have been turned down, but it's nothing but a trick,  and any boy or girl can do it. What  you need is a few cents' worth of saltpeter, which you can buy at any  apothecary's shop, and some pieces of  THE FIRE WEITIKG SHOW.  unsized paper. Drop the saltpeter into  a bowl of water until'no more will dissolve. Then take a wooden toothpick  or any other sharpened stick, dip it iu  the'���������saltpeter and write whatever you  like on the paper.  A* regular little show might be arranged by a clever boy, or a girl, either,  for that mutter. It ���������might.better be  both. The boy could be stage manager  and tell a wonderful little tale about,  the -way his star conjurer had been spirited away to some Uider Haggard land,  mysterious powers over fire known  only to the natives of the novelist's  strange land. He will then introduce,  mademoiselle the wizardess, who will  iroceed to do wonderful things with the  fire. She will hold the paper and tho  match in her hand, and after saying  the spell in tlie language of this strange  "people of the mist" tlie fire ,will,begin to travel over tlie paper, perhaps  spelling a motto or outlining somo  weird or familiar animal, Of course if  you got a good look at the papers you  would see a pencil mark indicating  whore tho match should be applied, but  otherwise tho paper would appear unmarked. The saltpeter dries quickly  and on unglazed paper will not show.  THE FLOUR MERCHANT.  A Came of Word* In Which Yon Most  Be Quick and Careful.

Yeung artists, not gaining distinction  early, bave bad various instances to  quote as showing that masterly performance often came late in life. In  Dora Amsden's book on Japanese art  .-It is set forth that this is what the  celebrated Japanese artist Hokusal  wrote about himself: "From the age of  six I had a mania for drawing the  forms of things. By the time I was  fifty I had published an infinity of designs, but all I have produced before  the age of seventy is not worth taking  into account. At seventy-five I learned  a little about the real structure of nature���������of animals, plants and trees,  birds, fishes, and insects. In consequence, when I am eighty I shall have  made still more progress. At ninety I  shall penetrate the mystery of things.  - At a hundred I shall certainly have  reached a marvelous stage, and when I  am 110 everything Ydo���������be it but a line  or dot���������will be alive. I beg those who  live as long as I do to see if I do not  keep my word." Hokusal died in 3849  at the age of eighty-nine.  Queen's university council will ask  the.

Sakhalin, the island which Japan iii  now taking���������or, rather, retaking���������from  Russia, is the place to which Russia  lends her violent convicts^..The con*  Vict in Siberia haa some "liberty to console bim for his detention, but the con-,'  vict in Sakhalin none. When a party  of convicts (having been pronbunced  ������������������violent" by the governor of the Siberian station) are landed in Sakhalin  the procession to the jail.is as follows;  First among the prisoners, come men  with fetters on their legs and linked  together ln pairs, the clanking of their  chains making a lugubrious noise.  Next come half a dozen men, each  without fetters, but secured by tht  hands to a long iron rod. Then follow  female prisoners, and after them, the  most affecting part of the whole, thi,  wives and children who have elected  to accompany into exile their husbands^  and fathers. Behind them rumble  "telegas," or rough wagons, wherein  are transported baggage and thos*  children who are too young or infirm  to walk.  When on the march the prisoners art:  allowed three poun'ds of bread and-,  one-half pound of meat each per diem,  and they are not forbidden ,to receive  alms.   But when they arrive at their  destination their lot is a pitiful1 one.  Their cells are damp and fungus cov-.  ered* their food is less than the allow- >  ance during the Journey, and;tbeir work''  in the salt mines ls most exhausting.���������������  Most of the prisoners are very igno-f;-  rant.   Few of them can read, except- -J;  ing the Caucasians, but they are all*;  put to the same laborious work, and ia $  the event of their being physically uu- ���������  able to perform  their allotted tasks  their punishments are very cruel. The '  English cat-o'-nine-tails. ls nothing to -  the terrors of the "bodiga."   In this instrument of torture the prisoner is so':*  fixed that he can neither move nor cry ;'���������  out, and wire thongs, bound at the end ''-  with pointed tin, strike his back at*;  frequent intervals.
