"Oh," she said, "you're going to give*  them to somebody."  "I don't care much for flowers." [  replied with palpable evasion.

"I beg your pardon," said I. "Speaking of botany reminded me of so:ue-  -:CHAPTER. IX..  BO'SES AXP LILIES.  HEN a gentleman has serenaded a,lady in the evening,  it is polite to send her flowers  next day. Reflecting upon  this matter while eating my morning  meal, it came into my mind that thero  might bo a florist's garden somewhere  in that region. Indeed I seemed to remember the shining roof of a greenhouse beside the road frppi the city.  After breakfast I sought "information  of .Timmy, who was sitting In a corner  of the principal Wltherspoon porch and  staring at nothing with the air of one  who understood it perfectly, who knew  why it was nothing and could create  It out of something whenever the universe should run short.  "A place where you can buy flowers?"  Baid Jimmy.  "M-m-m."  Ho had caught tills sound from Mrs,  Wltherspoon and had modified it* in  accord with his own nature, As uttered hy him nnd accompanied by s!ow  nodding of the hood lt meant: "So IIiIr  man wants to buy flowers? Well, welil  This is just whut I expected,"  "There's two or throo of thom around  here," said he. "I'll think which la tlio  best. I've got to go into tho houso now,  but I'll bo right hack. Will you bo  hero?"  In nn earlier stage of my acquaint-  unco with Jimmy I should havo accepted this statement nt Its face value;  but, having gained a knowledge of his  methods, I perceived tho truth, whioh  wnu that ho hnd no Idea whero tliere  was a llorlst, and wns going into the  ��������� houso to Hnd somo ono who eould cm  lighten him. It was immaterial to mo,  bo I sat down In tho porch to wait for  him.

"I don't . see  anything in it to make a person swear."  "You're a Puritan," said I, "or a  Quakeress. I didn't swear, though thc  idea was-really startling. Where did  [roil say your aunt's garden was?"  "It's way off over there," she replied,  waving her hand in an indefinite fashion toward the upper end of the lake.  "About how far?" I inquired.  Shcgave me a quick., keen glance.  "Why do you want to know?" she  queried. ,  "The day that I arrived," said I,  "your aunt camo in from tho garden  with a pan of peas. As a botanist, you  understand, uot as'n boarder, I wouid  llko to soo the warm corner of Michigan whore peas ottain that size In the  middle of June."  Lucy Ann bent forward so thnt her  faco was hidden by tho edge of thu  gray sunbonnct. I observed that hor  hands, which wore clothed In tho remarkable gloves tljflt sho had worn  tho flrst time I saw lier, wore some-  whnt tightly clinched. I began to  laugh.  "You won't say anything about this,"  die said, looking up. "Promiso mo you  won't."  "I cross my honrt," said I,  "Woll. then." sho whlspored. loaning  forward, "my mint hasn't any garden,  What's the use?

"Hut, they stand nmntour enko," snid  I, "nnd I will light any throo mon In  Michigan who daro to n,ssort that it  isn't the best In tho world."  "Bless your heart!" exelalmod Lucy  Ann.

"There's a place on the east end;, of  the lake," she said, "but I'm, afraid you  couldn't find it   It's queer."  "And the best posies grow there?"  "You'll say they are the prettiest -vvild  roses you ever saw." she cried, with  enthusiasm��������� "triple leaved and so  sweet that if the wind, blew off that  shore today you could, find them by  their scent in the air."  .'"Unfortunately, the wind is west,"  said I. "Perhaps Jimmy could pilot  mo."*-      ", "���������'.,"  "1 don't believe he knows where they  are," answered. Lucy Ann.

"I am a great stickler for propriety  myself; and yet"���������  "Goodness!" cried Lucy Ann, with a  laugh. "It isn't a question of propriety: it's the work. There's such a lot to  Jo."  Somehow this struck me as very harfl  iir.es and ro-eni'orced my suspicion that  tho genial-' Mrs. Witherspoon was a  slave driver in disguise.  "Mr. Twisk is always wanting me to  go here or there with him and Miss  Jones," -snid'Lufcy Ann. -Talk about  a stickler for propriety���������there's ono."  "Trasip?^ I ..cried.

But I was speaking about Miss Jones.  She is so awfully particular she won't  do anything, and she drags mo out on  all'occasions to sit with her and Mr.  Trask. Of course I'm willing enough.  Oh, there comes auntie back from the  garden.".  1 looked at Luey Ann closely, almost  anxiously.  "You don't like Miss Jones very well,  do you?" said I. ;���������"*'���������  But Lucy Ann protested that sho  thought Miss Jones was one of the  loveliest girls ever created, an object  of envy to nil others and quite unapproachably perfect. Yot my opinion  was unshaken,.'and I began to feel a  certain animosity against Trask.  "Are they sweet on each other?" I  asked.  Lucy Ann shook her head, not negatively, but as one who considers tuo  whole-question.  "I don't think they're engaged," said  sho at last,  "Do you?"  The last.two words had notable force,  though thoy wore spoken softly.  "Thoy might Uo married," said I,  "they're so bluo."  "I don't think they'd bo blue If thoy  wero married," snid she, as if my  worn joko wore .worthy of serious consideration. "Thoy'ro vory handsome,  both of them.  Don't *j;ou think so?"  "P.eauty soon failed" said I, "especially undor tho conditions which you  Indicate, Jlut hot ween ourselves I  don't think Trask Is so much,, He's got  a tino head, of course, but his eye Is  cold. Under certain circuinstnncos I  thin!'

I presented my pica for Lucy  Ann and carried it, though witb dllll-  ctilty.  As n result wo walked down the long  path thnt afternoon and embarked In  tho vory boat thnt had btdinvod ho hnd-  ly with mo on tbe previous evening.

"It is very romantic." said I. ."The30  roses are for a young lady whom I  never saw���������that is, I don't know whether ,1 ever saw her or not."  "That's queer," said she, with heightened interest. "You don't'mean"���������  ���������? And she waved her hand toward the  orchard,* which was coming abeam. I  nodded afflrmatively and then instinctively glanced in the direction she had  indicated. The fair artist was almost  in the precise spot where I had first  seen hei* at"',worb,.but on this occasion  the umln-ella planted in the ground obstructed my vision even more than lt  had done before. I could see the green  skirt, hut uot the pretty hand that  wielded the paint brush until, in resting, she let it fall by her side.  "I wonder what's the matter with  that igirl," said Lucy Ann. "It doesn't  seem healthy to me tb^live like that, all  alone. Goodness^ She won't be young  again! I should think she'd want to  get out where there are lots of .people  and where she can have a good time.  IM have a fit living the way she does.  I'd feel, like the poor, lonesome calf  that's tethered up in our back pasture  so that the boarders cau'think, we .raise  our own milk."  ���������'���������Perhaps'She sees enough people In  the winter," I.suggested.'  "I've got ho patience with girls that  mope," said she, "nor with"any''l*ind of  people'that "get tired of the. sight of  humanity.   I don't see enough."  "That's why you're so tolerant," I  .replied, "and :<o much interested. Yet,"  between ourselves; I think you're riglir.  I caine out here to be alone; I wanted  to live in that house, as she does, and  yet r���������m glad I clidu't. I'm glad to have  met Trask' and Scovel and- Derringer  and you, of course, and your aunt, who  Is'the greatest creature of hor kind ever  born.",   *., ';  '���������I'm glad to -hear* you talk so."  answered Luey Ann. "Our boarders  as a ruie are an unsociable lot. We  make a specialty of that sort, but I  wouldn't wi:di^ to catch their ways.  I've beon afraid of it."  "Don't." said I. "There is' nothing  in it. I>e frank, sincere, earnest, unselfish, busily employed, and then you  won't mope."  "That's good advice," answered Luc_7  Ann. "butvl can't help remembering  that you are going to get roses for  another kind of girl."  "I will give you one," said I;-"more,  if you want thom."  ���������U-Thst���������isnit���������-f-airT^-she-rejoined  shall nocoijt no foe for being your pilot.

STANLEY'S WAY.  ���������A-  r  i  Explorer's ContessUm ui  Faith Wus to Do  tho Work to Which lie Had  Set His Hand.  Writing of the lato Sir Henry M.  ���������Stanley, in The Cornhill Magazine,  Mr. Sidney Low says:   .  I remember once asking him .what  he would havg. done if he had been in  " Emin Pasha's place on tliat last fat-  el day .when .the emissaries ol" tho  slavers camo into his tent. "1 should  iiot have allowed mjaelf to bo  slaughtered like that," said Stanley;  "I should have thought it all our, bo-  forehand, and I thiniv 1 should have  known very well what the ruliians  meant tlio moment i .set eyes upon,  them, 1 might have been killed, but  iiot," lio n(������:led,- grimly, "by thoso  iiiL-n, for 1 shoulu have killed thom  first."  .Similarly- he. spoke of Gordon's  ���������eii'd.'"'i"'," he "said, "I'had been sent  to got,the. Khartoum garrison away,  I should have thought of that and  nothing else; I should.have calculated "the chances', , made'out exactly  what resistance I would have to encounter, ^ and how it ..could be overcome*,'" ami laid";a]l my plans.with the  sipglcj iobjoet,, 'oL-acconiijlishintf my  ��������� purpose.'���������'��������� (I'holi'6ve, though he did  not say so, that he thought the retreat could have been effected, or the  town held, ti.ll tlio relief column arrived, if nrr.per measures had been  taken and the on'e definite aim had.  tjeen kept ���������stefirdilyi.'m- view ��������� rill the  time. That was 'his own principle of  action. When he had an object to  fulfil, a commission to carry out, ho  could think'ot'j'nqlhing else till the  'woi-k' - was done: Difficulties, toil,  hardships, sacrifices of all kinds, of  timo, pfwmun,.,of. money, - were- only  in.ndcnts in the journey, that led io  a'goal, to. bo'reached if human endeavor could gain it. "No honor,"  ho wrote, ','no reward, however great,  can be equal to the subtle satisfaction that a man feels when he can  "point tohjs, work and say: 'See,  now," the'task I promised you to  perform with all loyalty and honesty,, with might and main, - to, the  ' utmost of my ability is to-clay finished.' " This was tho prime article1  in Stanley's (cqnfesj>ionrof faith���������to do  the'work to"; which he <ha'd set his  .hand, and in doing it, like Tennyson's Ulysses:  To strive, to seek, to find, and   not  ��������� to yield/* ' ���������  Unique Relic ol 17TG.  In'tho fall of 1899 a boy named  'Charles Cooper was trying to dig  out'n rabbit on tho property of Mr.  E. D, Smith,.near Winona, about a  mile east oV what is known ns tho  McNoilly Mountain road. Scarcely  mure than a foot from tho surfaco ho  turned up a piece of a large shell,  whole specimens of which are sometimes found in Ontario Indian graves  although the habitat'of such sp. ci-  mcii's is the coast of Florida. On this  bit of shell thero wns n littlo rough  engraving done, evidently by tho  hand of nn Indian. Close to thu  shell, ho" found what is, in somo respects, nn extremely interesting o.v  ample of carvinfe cm stone. The mu*  terinl (lithographic limestone1) is six  and a half inches high, seven and ai'  half wide* nnd averages an inch and  a half in thickness. Mr. W, S.

Comparatively few peoplo know  what a large "amount of water the  human body consists of. A man  weighing 200 .pounds is made up of  120 rioi..nds of water ' end 80 pounds  of solids. Tho latter includes bone,  muscle, etc. Even tho fat of the  body contains 15 per cent, of water,  the liver is made up of 09 per cent.  and the biuod of S'J. The skin.contains 72 per cent., the Drain .75 and  tho muscle 7-V  It may be naturally supposed that  a (tuid -so universally distributed  throughout the body must constitute  a very important article of its existence. Experiments have shown  that on water alone life may be sustained as long as fifty-fiv������ days,  whereas if dry food only were Riven  death would ensue in a quai;te> of  that time, anil this in a most aco-  nizinft way. The terrible agony that  shipwrecked mnr.'ivrs. sometimes suffer in thir, way will induce their! to  drink s<>n water, and this adr's a  hundredfold to the uncontrollable  thirst that induces delirium and  death.    ,  ���������Women Mali* I'oor Detectives.

WAGE REDUCTIONS  Some   Strange   Observance*   Among  Australian Tribes.  There are some queer customs ob- j  served by the native Australians, their '  modes of disposing of the dead beim; ]  noticeable and varied.   When a mother !  loses a favorite child she carries ' the !  dead body about with lier in a box or  casing   of   bark   until  decomposition  forces ber to dispose of it either by  burial or fire.  In the case of some prominent person  of the tn'ue dying his nuarest relatives  cut off lt!s'Wan<lK and keep them aa  sacred rt,;!iieml;rani-e,������. onIj- parting with  them after the odor from the dead  members has becomo unendurable.  Then they are thrown Into a stream,  hidden in a hollow tree or burned.  Women are held in such contempt  among the Australian tribes that often  they receive no burial nt all. and it is  a rare thing to see oue mourned for by  family and friends. But at the funeral  of a man or boy the lamentations are  loud and long, the femalemourners being the most -demonstrative:  With some of the tribes the practice  of throwing the bodies of the dead over  the branches of trees and leaving them  for nature to dispose of is observed.  Why need a 'traveller never starve  in a desert?���������Because of'the sand  which  is sandwiches  tliere.  A deadly poison injected into a vein  kills in about 15 seconds; injected  under the skin in four minutes.  TRIED ALL ELSE  TO WBENEFIT  Then Dodd's Kidney Pills Cur-  ed His Diabetes.

By the closing down of such  companies as the Pullman Company  thousands are thrown out of employment.

By the death of   James   Strang'  one of our oldest and moat  respected   citizens     has    been   removed.  The shocking accident which led tn  this fatal   ending   is   now   widely  known but a brief description may  no. lie amiss for the benefit of our  distant readers.    Mr Strang wap in  the habit, of coming up to tha pithead  at No. 5, of which mine he  was overman, at noon euch day lo  partake of  his   lunch,   and  then  take anything  required down the  pit.   Last Friday,  when ready to  go back to the mine, he had occas  ion to cross the main line to the  blacksmith sh-ip, for some piping.  He haa already been there, had got  -part]y-up-the-pithead-&tairtv<when-  lie thought  of something  he had  forgotten  and  turned back,  as it  happened to hia death.     Crossing  under the picking table, he stepped  fr m under tlie pithead building,  dir. ctly on   lhe  track       Slightly  hard of  hearing, probably further  deepened hy lue sound of ihe picker, and the heavily falling rain, he  ���������failed." to hear th* incoming locomotive, pushing ahead of her three  coal cur.-, ihe first of which struck  ihe unfortunate man as he reached  ihe second track, a few feet frum  thv first one.     Andrew Th uripson,  the blacksmith striker, saw through  the window of the   smithy tome  'movdm.ei.it on the track, aid looking oloser, saw a figure lying between the two tracks.     Culling to  Mr RobertBon, the blacksmith, he  rushed to the spot, and una horrified to find poor Mr Strang, one leg  gone at tbo thigh, and in.a pool if  blood, but perfectly conscious, und  attempting to fix up the mangled  member.    He united for a drink,  and Thompson at once ian for In-.,  while Robertson  g utly laid   him  down and did all possible to mako  the injund man ea.iy.    Thompson  return inn with the drink, had mean  while telephoned to town, and -hon--  ly afier Mr Strung was taken to tlie  hogpiutl, where hu gradually sank,  until at 6.30 he expiredv,surrounded  by friend* and conscious to tho hint  Shortly after his removal there he  asked Dr Staples if there was any  hope, and being told there wan very  little, he began at once putting In  order Ivs last w.,>r dy affairs.
