Gruesome Burial Place of the Parsees  of Bombay���������Erected 300  Feet  Above Level of the Sea.  High above Bombay, on the freest  "and most airy spot of the city and 300  feet above tha level of ihe sea, is situated, the most peculiar cemetery in.  the world���������the burial place of the Par-  sees.   It is called the Tower of Silence.  These Towers of Silence are found  everywhere in Pei-sia, where the corpse,  placed under the open sky. is dried by  the sun and dissolved by the rain. But  In Bombay, where the burial place is  limited and where death and misery invite vultures in greatest numbers, the  ���������dlsaolution-is-considerably hastened by  these carrion eaters.  The tower itself consists of a stone  wall'thirty feat high.'forming a circle  about 300 feet in diameter���������a roofless  tower. The floor, made of cement, is  an inclined plane, terminating In a  deep and wide well. It ts divided into  three concentric circles, within which  are standing side by side the low, open  sarcophagi. These circles are connected by wide drain gu;ters, leading to the  wall in the oent re of the building. The  men are laid in the outer, the women  in the middle and children in the inner circle.  The whole inner construction reminds  one of the Inside of a classical amphitheatre, only that in this tower the  fplayers���������the corpses and the vultures���������  ���������joccupy tho place of the spectators,  while the centre���������tho arena���������ls occupied by tho wall, fifty feet In diameter.  Having entered the Iron door leading  .into the tower, the khandlas Immediately strip tho corpse of all clothing, for  ���������{Zoroaster has said, "Naked thou com-  .est Into the world, and naked shall  thou depart therefrom." The body Is  ithen placed in one of the vacant sar  cophagi.  In a few minutes the places is covered with vultures, which ls the.course  of an hour devour every vestige of  flesh on the fresh corpse, while the  blood finds its way through the drain  canals down into the wall. The skeleton only remains, as smoothly picked  as though it had been cleaned In the  chambers of an anatomical institution.  In a few weeks the burning rays of  the sun and the heavy rains have dissolved the skeleton and piecemeal worked it down the wall, where the remaining pieces of bones are further dissolved in a mixture of lime and sulphur,  whllg the blood and fluids are strained  through a heavy layer of coal and sand  and enter the undefiled ground of the  Parsees as pure, water.  ���������olt-is-clalmed-that���������thls-mode-of-bufc,  ial is the most cleanly of all methods  and, from the standpoint of hygiene,  the most safe. Certainly as It is practiced In the land of its origin, where  the forces of hature-^-sun and rain���������  perform the entire operation, It does  not appear at all horrible.  Dr. Grace's Autograph.  Dr. W. G. Grace, the most famous  cricketer ln England, probably has  given his autograph as often as any  other celebrity. At a match not long  ago he wrote his name In the notebook  of a little girl, A couple of weeks later, much to his surprise, the same UttU  lady shyly sidled up to him with the  necessary documents and the request  for his autograph. "But I gave it,'to  you only a few days ago," laughingly  said tho veteran. "Oh," came the answer, "I changed that one for two bishops," Dr. Grace laughed heartily as  ho replied, "Well, my dear, If a.cricketer is worth two bishops I don't believe I ought to give you another autograph. But your nalvette ls so dell-  clous I suppose I must. So there you  are."

One day he gave a man a letter  to one of his intimate friends In Brussels. Tbe friend, a wealthy merchant,  received him as though he had been  Dumas' own brother, introduced him  to his circle of acquaintances, placed  his stable at the man's disposal and  did everything in his power to make  life pleasant for Dumas' friend. After  the lapse of fourteen days tbe man  suddenly disappeared aud with him  the best horse iu tbe merchant's stable.  Six months Inter tho merchant visited  Dumas and thanked him for the kind  of people he recommended to his consideration. "Dear friend," he added,  "your friend Is a shark. He stole the  best horse In my stable." Astonished,  Dumas raised his bands toward heaven  and cried, "What, he stole, from you  too!"   Maxcppa and the Cossacks.  The word cossack means robber, and  the name Cossacks was given by the  Turks to a race in manners, appearance and language like the Russians,  but who are said hot to be really akin  to them. The Cossacks of Little Russia* and the Don Cossacks are said to  be the most unscrupulous robbers in  tbe world. They excel in horsemanship  and form a large part of the Rustiian  imperial cavalry. Styled sometimes  the spies of the czar, they keep the  nihilists in greater check than any  other power and number many moro  than a million men. Mazeppa, a Don  Cossack, the subject of Byron's poem,  wheu condemned to be bound upon a  wild horse and borne away to bis fate,  was carried toward the Ukraine, on  the borders-of-Poland, and, being rescued by Cossacks, became their chief.  Violet For Mourning.  It was not by accident that violet  was chosen by many nations as the exclusive color for mourning and by us  also for half mourning. Painters suffering from hysteria and neurasthenia  will be inclined to cover th<*ir picture-  uniformly with the color most in accordance with their condition of lassitude and exhaustion. Thus originate  the violet pictures of Manet and his  icEool7^whiciripflSg7from-no-actually-  observable aspect of nature, but from  a subjective view due to conditions of  the nerves. When the entire surface  of walls in salons and art exhibitions  of the day appears veiled in uniform  balf mourning this predilection for violet is simply an expression of the nervous debility of the painter.  Skull Worship,  Locky, In his "History of tho night-  ocnth Century," shows us that skull  worship, Btmugo us It may soom, was  almost t'ho only form of dovotlon In tho  uppor circles of Francs Just prior to  tho revolution. A skull lllumlna'od by  tapors, garlanded with gny ribbons and  adorned with pearls might then commonly bo found In a dovout lady'* boudoir. Its pet namo was La Bulla Mla?  non, tha pretty darling, and tha fair  dovotoa waa wont to spend a part of  avary day In prayer and meditation ba������  for It, iho wuuun of Louio XV. wm  much addicted to thla, and tho aY\\\l be*  tore which sho prayed was said to ba  that of Ninon da l'Bnoloa, tha noted  oourt boauty, around whom flitted Cardinal Biohoilou, tha groat Conda, tnd  La Rochefoucauld,  A Broad Hint.  Sir Andrew Agnew of Lucknow, a  well known Scotch baronet, was long  pestered by an impudent sort of person, who Insisted on being constantly  "underfoot." Finally, however, he  dropped off, aud Sir Andrew was asked how bo got rid of him.  "Oh," said he, "I gave him A broad  hint."  "A broad hint?" repeated the inquirer. "I thought he was one of those  who never could be Induced to take  oue."  "By ma aaul," said Sir Andrew, "be  was obleeged to tak* lt!

At the level of tho sea tho pressure  of the atmosphere on tho piston of an  engine ia about fifteen pounds to the  square Inch, but decreases at higher  altitudes.

Btntt  o*.o*'0">*.e..o-.o..oi.owwa^tM0^o*o*o-^-iO-.������(e)  Miss Lettlce was crying. It was ia  the mind of Donald Ordway, a brave  hearted gentleman, aged fourteen, that  this tit of teiirs had to do with the  visitor who hnd just left her. Therefore it was befitting that this visitor  ahould return and make prompt apology to Miss Lettlce for anything ln  , his words or actions which might hava  caused tears. It seemed to Donald  that it was both his peculiar duty and  much to be valued privilege to bring  back this visitor and see that the apology was, made, even If lt should be  necessary to resort to force to accomplish the desired end.  There would be odds against him, ha  reflected, aa he thought of the stranger's broad shoulders and athletic appearance, but odds In battle were not  to be considered by an Ordway, nor  was lt well that one of the family  should contemplate the bare possibility of defeat in any warlike undertaking. Of course defeat was possible,  but one could and did put it out of hia  uind in going Into battle.  Therefore Donald set out hastily  ���������long the oak arched driveway which  led to the big gate. It was his calculation that he would be able to overtake the late visitor just outside the  - boundary of the Ordway demesne, and  this cheered him, for it would not do  to attack a guest within your gates..,  Once outside the gates the duties of  hospitality do not shield the offender.  This was ln the code of Konald's blue  grass country and was not to be questioned by one who was raised upon  the lessons furnished by that code.  And just beyond the big gates he did  overtake the visitor, who was walking  along the roadside toward the station,  slashing angrily at weeds with his  cane. Donald had not figured on the  cane and wished that he had thought  to provide himself with a weapon af   some sort.   But there was no time to  hesitate, and'he made haste to put BlmT  self alongside his adversary to he.  "Pardon me, sir," said Donald, "for  Interrupting you." The whole procedure must be carried through with  perfect politeness. Rudeness, even to  an enemy, was never justifiable. Donald recollected having heard his father  often say that.  . Tba man with the cans came to a  ���������top.  "Wall, what Is It, young roan?" he  ���������aid, somewhat brusquely. This  fcrusqueness was very ungentlemanly,  thought Donald, but the man was a  northerner, and this, in Donald's eyes,  showed that he knew no better.  'Tou are Mr. Douglass?" He had  eten the card on the tray In tbe ball.  "Yea. What of It?" this brusquely, aa  before. Tben, "Did Miss Mason send  you after me?" with a trace of eagerness In his voice.  "Certainly not, sir," said Donald,  with dignity. "I bave come on my own  account, sir," It was not in the coda  that one should drag the name ot a wo-  nan In the quarrels of men.  "Weil, what do you want?" Tha  hruaquenesa was again quite evident.  "It will be necessary for you, sir, to  apologise te my cousin, Miss Lattice  Mason,"  "Apologise to Miss Mason!"  "You have beard ma correctly, sir."  Donald was greatly rejoiced at tha  irm dignity of hia own tones. He felt  that he was carrying through bis part  tn the affair In a way which would  have won tbe sincere commendation of  his father and even of his grandfather,  wbo bad beon the most famous duelist  ef bis day and state,  "But, young man, I don't ewe Miss  Mason any apology,"  "That, sir, Is a question which you  must permit me to decide Miss Ms-  son is, as I have said, my cousin, Wa  Ordways"���������tbero was a quiver of pride  In tbe way which Donald pronounced  tbo namo-"nro not acciiBtomed to receive Instructions from outsiders upon  Matters of etiquette."  "What mnkoa you think I ewe Miss  Mason an apology?"  "Is lt not tinougb, sir, for yon te  Inow that I doom an apology necessary?"  How his prospective antagonist threw  bnck his bead and laughed loud ond  long. Donald watted puiiouuy uuui  the fit of laughter bail pm>t*vd U wna  merely another Item to be added te  Mr. Douglass' count of rudeness.  There bad been nothing in the Ordway  blood or tbe Ordway upbringing to  teach tbls fourteen-year-oid tUfti*intent of tho cavaliers that there was  anything ridiculous In bis demanding,  without condescending to explain, aa  apology from a bearded man of thirty,  "Ho," said Mr. Douglaas. still half  choked with laughter, "ft la not  enough for me to know tbat yon con-  eider au apology aecmary. I must  catch my train and will bid you good  afternoon." With tbls be turned and  would have, walked forward, but that  Donald laid ��������� detaining band en hie  erio.  "Abee yeo must fight we, str."  "Now, look here, you young savage,  why don't you pick out a man of yonr  else Instead of trying to pick a quarrel  with a little fellow like myself?" Evidently Mr. Douglass was inclined to  consider the whole affair a joke, for he  threw up bis arms in a position of defense which Donald could readily sea  was burlesqued.  All that could be demanded ef etes  the Ordway courtesy was passed, and,  the limit reached, Donald struck with  all his might at the head of his antagonist. But the antagonist would not  fight fairly.   Ha simply grasped aotM  or Donald's small hands. in., bis own  big palms, held tliein fast, nud when  the upholder "of the Ordway name attempted to kick he found himself lying  fiat on his buck.  "Now, youngster, come down off your  high horse a bit and tell me what is the  mutter with you."  Searching his memory "or some precedent of his own condition, Donald  found none. His ancestors had, some of  tbem, been imprisoned for upholding  what they believed to be their right  or their honor, but none, so far as Donald knew, had ever been so lgnomin-  iously .treated ao himself. Tha big  U&ra weitea up to bis eyes arm <rere  prevented from overflowing only by  pride. His opponent caught sight of  the tears and at once released him.  This was putting Donald on honor not  to renew hostilities without due warning. He drew himself up with all the  remains of dignity which ha could  command.  "You have the better of me, sir, ln  the matter of strength. But rest assured that I shall not permit the mutter to drop. You will hear from me  again, sir."  "Now, youngster, tell me what ls tha  matter. If I owe an apology, you can  bet I will make it at once."  Truly this northerner was not so entirely deficient in courtesy. It might  ba well to explain.  "Miss Mason, my cousin, upon whom  you called a few minutes ago, went to  her room in tears as you left I naturally take it for granted that you said  something to offend her."  "In tears! Something to offend her!  Are you quite sure about the tears, my  boy?" There was eagerness in tha  questioner's tones.  "Certainly I am sure,"  "Tireff^mia~with~m������-and-watch-me-  apologize."  And Donald'a rather short legs found  much difficulty In keeping pace with  the longer ones of Mr. Douglass. In  fact, Mr. Douglass reached the house  a good five minutes before Donald  came up, puffing and blowing.. He  could not understand why bis cousin  should bo.standing there in the doorway with her head on Mr. Douglass'  shoulder and crying at tbe same time.  Ha pushed forward fiercely.  "Oh, Donald, Donald, dear!" said  Mla* Lettlce, amlllug moat happily  through a mist of tears. Donald went  forward mora slowly, confronting  something now which ha did not pretend to understand.  "I've apologized, Donald," said Mr.  Douglass.  It was not to be expected tbat Don-  aid, at the age of fourteen, should hava  arrived at an understanding of woman  nature sufficient to comprehend that  Miss Lettlce bad rejected Mr. Douglass and tbat tbe tears which she shed  were tears of regret at her own action.  Nor did he understand exactly tha  part be had himself played in bringing  back the man wbo bad been rejected-  bringing him back to be accepted.  But, despite tbe fact tbat be was  only fourteen, Donald was the best  man at tbe wedding.  chicken, carnivorous or graminivorous?  Graminivorous, of course.

He introduced Dowling to a  stranger at the Gayety and then whis-,  pered to him: "Dick, my boy, do your  best to make yourself agreeable to our  friend. He is the largest buyer of  those Christmas stories of yours. I  must be off."  Dowling spoke for awhile on general topics to the stranger, and at last  be ventured on the subject of books.  "I suppose you know," be said, "that  I am tbe unfortunate man who wroto  Tlnsley's last annual?" "Yes, I recognize your name, Mr. Dowling," said  the stranger. "Mr, Tinsley tells me  you are a large buyer of books," said  Dowling. "Yes, I buy a lot of stuff of  one kind or another, I am a waste paper merchant."  MemUora Kara a Llvlnar,  Monkeys are more than pets In some  parts of the world. At Malabar, India,  tbey are taught to work and have actually made themselves almost Indispensable ln tbe homes of the wealthy.  The Malabar monkey Is of the fine species known as tbo langur. It is very  warm la Malabar, and there le a fan  called tbe punka, which used to be  kept In motion by a slave. It required  a ������lave to work each punka, but now  every punka In Malabar ia worked by  a monkey. It was an English officer  wbo conceived the Idea of making tba  langur work ln tbat manner.

The   Salaries   That   Professors   aad  Tutors In Harvard Receive,  Only a few Harvard professors get  $4,000 a year. The cost of living and  the demands of life in general have  greatly increased, but no increase has  come in the stipends of these able and  hardworking men.  In 18G8 a full professor got from  $3,800 to $333.32, with an average of  $2,273; tutors were paid an average of  $1,007.22; instructors, an average of  $548; assistants received salaries between $S75 and $41G.G7.  Today a full professor's salary ls  $4,000, an associate professor's $3,500,  an assistant professor's $2,000, an instructor's $1,000 or less, an assistant's  between $250 and $400.  In the course of the thirty-seven  years which have passed since 18G8 almost all other persons on salary hava  had their compensation raised to suit  the times. It costs a professor much  more to live now than It did then, and  it takes him longer to become a full  professor, which means a shorter working life.

We had'crossed a deep valley and  ���������were climbing a long bill in the dusky  twilight.  "Willie," said Uncle Eb, "your eyes  are bet ter'n mine. Look, bacs ana see  if any one's comin'."  "Can't see any one," I answered.  "Look way back in the road as fui  as ye can see."  I did so, but I could see no one. He  slackened his pace a little after that,  and before we had passed the hill it  was getting dark. The road ran into  woods, and a-river cut through, them a  little way from the clearing.  "Supper time, Uncle Eb," I suggested as we came to the bridge.  "Supper time, Uncle Eb," he answered, turning down to the shore.  I got out ot the basket then and followed him in the brush. Fred found ii  hard traveling here, and shortly we  took off his harness and left the wagon,  transferring its load to the basket,  while we pushed on to find a camping  place. Back in the thick timber ,a long  way from the road we built a fire and  bad our supper. It was a dry nook in  the pines���������"tight as a house," Uncle Eb  said���������and carpeted with the fragrant  needles. When we lay on our backs  in the firelight I remember the weary,  droning voice of Uncle Eb had an impressive accompaniment of whispers.  While he toid stories I had a glowing  cinder on the end of a stick and was  weaving fiery skeins in the gloom.  He had been tolling me of a panther  -be-had~met-in-the-woods-one-day~and-  how the creature ran away at the sight  of him.  "Why's a panther 'fraid o' folks?" I  inquired.  "Waal, ye see, tliey used t' be friend-,  ly, years an' years ago���������folks an' panthers���������but they wan't eggszae'ly cal'lat-  ed t' git along t'gether some way. An'  ol' she panther gin 'em one uv her cubs  a great while ago jes' t' make frleu's.  The cub he grew big an* used t' play an'  be very gentle. Tliey, wiiz a boy he  tuk to, an' both on 'era got very friendly. The boy1 an' the panther went off  one day 'n the woods���������guess 'twas  more'n a hundred year ago���������an' was  lost. Walked all over an' fin'ly got t'  goin' round an' round 'n a big circle till  they was both on 'em tired out. Coni6  night they lay down es hungry es tew  bears. The boy he was kind o' 'fraid  o' the dark, so ho got up clus t' the  panther an' lay 'tween his paws. The  boy he thought tbe panther'smelt funny,  an' the panther he didn't jes' like the  smell o' the bey. Au' the boy ho hed  the leg ache nn' kicked the piinthor'n the  belly, so't he kin' o' gagged an' spit nn'  they won't neither on 'cm reel com-  f'table. The sof paws o' tbo pnnther  was Jos' like pincushions, He'd great  hooks Id 'em sharpor'n the p'int u,y  a needle. An' when ho was goin' |H  sleep lic'd run 'em out jes' like an orW  thors after thet. Hain't never oeen  frien's any more. Fact is a man be  can be any kind uv a beast, but a panther he can't be uuthin* but jest a  panther."  Then, too, as we lay there in the  firelight Uncle Eb told the remarkable  story of tbe gingerbread boar. He told  it slowly, as if his invention were severely taxed.   And bore is the story:  "Once they wuz ri boy got lost. Was  goin' cross lots t' play with 'nother boy  an' hed t' go through a strip o'"woods.  Went off the trail V chase a butterfly  an' got lost. Hed his kite an' cross  gun, an' he wandered all over till be  was tired an' hungry. Then be lay  down t' cry on a bed o' moss. Purty  quick they was a big black bear come  aloug.  " *"V\;hat's the matter?' said the bear.  " 'Hungry,' says the boy.  " 'Tell ye what I'll dew,' says the  bear. 'If ye'll scratch my back,, fer  me I'll let ye cut a piece o' my tail oft  t' eat'  "Bear's tail, ye know, hes a lot o  meat on it���������hearn tell it was gran' gooa  fare. So the boy he scratched the  bear's back, an' the bear he grinnea  an' made his paw go patitty pat ou the  ground���������it did feel so splendid. Then  I the boy tuk his jackknil'e an' begun t'  c cut off the bear's tail. The bear he  flew mad an' growled an' growled so  the boy he stopped an' didn't dast cut  uo more.  ���������' 'Hurts awful,' says the bear.  'Couldn't nev������r stan* it. Tell ye what  I'll dew. Ye scratched my back, an'  now I'll scratch your'n.' "  "Gee whiz!" said I.  "Yes, sir, that's what the bear said,"  Uncle Eb went on.   "Tbe boy be up an-  iainJike^a_nailer. The-bean-he-laugh-  ed hearty an' scratched the ground liki3  Sam Hill an' flung the dirt higher'n his  head.  "'Look here,' says he as the boy  stopped, "I jes' swallered a piece o  mutton. Run yer baud iuf my throat  an'I'll let ye hev it'  "The bear he opened his mouth an-  showed his big teeth.''  "Whew!" I whistled.  "Thet's oggszac'ly what he done,"  said Uncle Eb. "He showed 'em plain  The boy was scairter 'n a weasel. Tup  bear he juwoed uo au' down on his  hind logs nn' lnughed an' hollered nn'  shook himself.  " 'Only jes' foolin'," says he when he  cut���������Ulud o' playful���������au' pur an' pull.  "All t' once the boy felt surathln*.  like n lot o' noodles prlekln' his buck;  made him jump un' holler like Sam  11111, Thc panther lie juplt .sassy au'  riss up an' smelt o' tlio ground. Didn't  neither on 'oin know whut was tbo mnttor. Rime by they lay down ng'iu.  'Twnn't only it lllllo whilo 'foro the  boy folt suuitblu' prlekin' uv him.

"What ye 'l'raid uvV"  "'Can't hour t' stay here,' says the  boy. ' 'less ye'll keep yer mouth shot.'  "An' the bear he shot his mouth an'  p'inlod to tho big pocket '������ ills fur  coat an' winked an' motioned t' tho  boy,  "The bear ho rcely did hev n pocket  on the side uv iiis big fur coat. The  boy slid his hnnd In up t' tlie elbow.  Wun' d'ye s'pose ho found'/"  "Dunno," suid I.  "Sunithin' t' eat," ho continued.  "Roy liked it best of nil Hilngs."  I guessed everything I eould think  of, from cookies to beefsteak, nml gave  K1:,  "Qlngorbread," snid  lie soberly  at  bears   couldn't  length.  "'ifo'nB  fought   ye   snid  talk," I objected.  "Wnnl, the boy 'tl fell asleep, nn' he'd  only dreamed o' the boar," said Uncle  Eb. "Ye see, bears can talk when  boys nre drenmln' uv 'em. ('nine daylight, the boy nol up nn' kcMioil a  prow; broke his wing with the emus  gun. Then lie lied the kite Hiring on  f tho crow's log, un' the crow Hopped  I aad* as outcry, but clung to my old  companion, trembling. He did not stir  for a few minutes, and then we crept  cautiously into the small hemlocks on  one side of the opening.  "Keep still," he whispered. "Don't  move er speak."  Presently we heard a move in the  brush, and then quick as a flash Uncle  Eb lifted his rifle and fired in the direction of it Before the loud echo had  gone off in the woods we beard something break through the brush at a run.  "'S a man," said Uncle Eb as he listened. "He ain't a-losln' no time  nuther."  We sat listening as the sound grew  fainter, and when it ceased entirely Uncle Eb said he must have got to the  road. After "a little the light of the  morning began sifting down through  the tree tops and was greeted with innumerable songs.  "He done noble," said Uncle Eb, patting tlie old dog as he rose to poke the  fire. "Purty good chap I call 'im! He  can hev balf o' my dinner any time he  wants it."  "Who do you suppose it was?" I inquired.  "Robbers, I guess," he answered, "an*  they'll be layin' fer us when we go out  mebbe; but, if they are, Fred '11 find  'em, an' I've got 01' Trusty here, an' I  guess thet'll take care uv us."  His rifle was always flattered with  that name of OP Trusty when it had  done him a good turn.  Soon as the light had come clear he  went out in the near woods with dog  and rifle and beat around in the brush.  He returned shortly and said he had  seen where they came and went.  "I'd a-killed 'em deader 'n a doornail," said he, laying down the old rifle,  "if they'd a-corue any nearer."  Then we brought water from the  river and had our breakfast Fred  went on ahead of us when we started  for the road, scurrying through the  brush on both sides of the trail as if  he knew what' was expected of him.  He flushed a number of partridges,  and Uncle Eb killed one of them on  our way to the road. We resumed our  journey without any further adventure. It was so smooth and level underfoot that Uncle Eb let me,get in the  wagon after Fred was hitched to" it.  The old dog went along soberly and  without much effort, save when we  came to hills or sandy places, when I  ���������.always-got-out-and-ran-on-behind.���������  queer little fritter,   Couldn't neither j along an' the boy followed lilm, nu  on 'em uuderstsn' It,   Tbo boy c'u'd  see the eves o' the panther iu the dark;  shone lf.ij tew live coals oggszac'ly.

Am for myself, ! never hnd n more fearful hour than that we suffered before  thc i'^ht of ujoiuiujj uiuie.  ( i%L*u  Uncle Eb showed me li'ow to brake  the wheels with a long stick going  downhill. I remember how it hit tbe  dog's heels at the first down grade and  bow he ran to keep out of the way  of it. We were going like mad in half  t minute, Uncle Eb coming after us  calling to the dog. Fred only looked  over his shoulder with a wild eye at  tho rattling wagon and ran the harder.  He leaped aside at the bottom, nnd  then we went nil in a heap. Fortunately no harm was done.  "I declare!" snid Uncle Eb as he  came up to us. puffing like a spent  horse, and picked me up unhurt and  began to untangle the harness of old  Fred. "I guess he must 'a' thought the  devil was ufter him."  The dog growled a little for a moment and bit at the harness, but coax,  ing reassured lilm, and he went along  nil right again on tho level. At a small  settlement the children came out asking me questions. Some of them tried  to pet the dog, but old Fred kept to  his inbor at the heels of Undo Eb nnd  looked neither to right nor left. We  stopped under a tree by tlie side of a  narrow brook for our dinner, aud on������  Incident of that dinner I think of always whon I think of Undo Eb.

Uo told me  ilso the story of the mit Hon���������n big  beetle tliat lives in the jungles of the  fruln and the grass -of which I remem-  ... ouiy an outline, more or less imperfect.  Here it is in my own rewording of his  tale: On a bright day one of the little  black folks went off on a long road in  a great field of barley. He was going  to another city of his own people to  bring helpers for the harvest. He came  shortly to a sandy place where the barley was thin nnd the hot sunlight lay  near to the ground. In a little valley  close by tbe road of the ants be saw a  deep pit in the sand with steep sides  sloping to a point in tbe middle and as  big around as a biscuit. Now, the ants  are a curious people and go looking for  things that are now and wonderful as  they walk abroad, so thoy have much  to tell worth hearing after a journey.  The little traveler was young and had  no fear, so he left tbe road and went  down to the a'vt nnd peeped over the  side of it.  "What in the world is the meaning of  this queer place?" be asked himself as  he ran around tbe rim. In a moment  be bad stepped over, and the soft sand  began to cave and slide beneath him.  Quick as a flash the big lion beetle rose  up in tbe center of the pit and began  to reach for him. Then his legs flew  in the caving sand, and the young ant  struck his blades in it to hold the little  he could gain.  Upward he struggled, leaping and  floundering in the dust. He had got  near the rim and had stopped, clinging  to get his breath, when the lion began  flinging the sand at him with his long  feelers. It rose in a cloud and fell on  the back of the ant and pulled at him  as it swept down. He could feel the  mighty cleavers of the lion striking  near bis hind legs and pulling the sand  from under them. He must go down in  a moment, and he knew what that  meant. He had heard the old men of  the tribe tell often how they hold one  We ivcre going liltc mod.  helpless and slash bim into a dozen  pieces. He was letting go in despair  when he felt a hand on bis neck. Looking up, he saw one of his own peoplo  reaching over tho rim, and in a jiffy  they had shut their fangs together. He  moved little by little as the other tugged at him and in a moment was out of  the trap and could feel tbe honest earth  under him. When they had got home  and told their adventure some wero for  going to slay the beetle.  "There is never a pit in the path o'  duty," said tho wise old chief of tho llttlo black folks. "See that you keep in  the straight road,"  "If our brother had nok left the  strulgbt rond," said ono who stood near,  "ho that was In danger would have  gone down into the pit."  "It matters much." ho answered,  "whether it was kindness or curiosity  thnt led him out of tho road. But he  that follows a fool hath much need of  wisdom, for If he save the fool do y������  not see that ho hnth encourugod folly?"

The passenger traffic manager of  the Canadian Pacific Railway, Mr.  Robt. Kerr, has just received from  Glasgow, Scotland, details regarding '  the successful launching, at the Fairfield shipbuilding yards upon the  Clyde, of the first new passenger  steamships which the company intends adding to its Atlantic fleet  poilBO sj .touu avou oqx "uoswes }xon  the Empress'of Britain, and will make  her first trip from Liverpool to Montreal when navigation opens on the  St. Lawrence next May. The Empress of Ireland, a sister ship, is now  receiving its finishing touches in the  Fairfield yards, and will he launched  in January. She will make her first  trip from Liverpool to Montreal in  June next.  The Empress of Britain is the largest vessel ever launched from the  Fairfield yards, has a displacement of _.,  20,000 tons and ranks as one of the  largest, leviathans upon the North  Atlantic. The ceremony of launching  was performed by Mrs. Arthur Piers,  the wife of the manager of the Canadian Pacific steamship lines, who  struck the blow which started the  huge vessel down the ways with an  ivory mallet, presented by Admiral  Sir Digby Morant. Among those  present upon the launching platform  were Sir William Pearce, Chairman  of the Fairfield Co.; Dr. Francis El-  gar, the architect of the new ship;  Mr. Alexander Gracie, the managing  director; Admiral Sir Digby Morant,  Colonel Paget Mosley, Mr. W. M.  Rhodes, (directors), and Mr. A. W.  Sampson, secretary of the Fairfield  Company; Lord McLaren, Sir Samuel  Chisholm, former lord provost of  Glasgow; Sir David Richmond, Admiral Wilson, Professor Purvis, of the  Imperial University, Japan; Dr. Robt.  Gourley, Mr. R. Hunter Craig, M,P.;  the Right, Hon. Parker Smith, M.P.;  Mr. Robert Strachan, Mr. George P.  Dodwell, Mr. G. B. Dunlop; Mr. Neil  Munroe; Mr. J. Currie; Professor  John Wylie, Mr. Archer Baker and  Mr. Arthur--. Piers,  At the luncheon, in proposing the  health of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company and wishing success,  to the new ship at a luncheon which  followed the ceremony of launching,  Sir William Pearce said that the enterprise of the Canadian Pacific Co.  in establishing this last splendid link  in their chain of communication be-,  tween England and the Orient had  done-a-greafc-deal,���������not-only_to���������in*-���������  crease the prosperity of Canada, but  also to promote the interests of the  British Empire.  Mr. Archer-Baker, manager of the  Canadian Pacific Company in London, replying on its behalf, referred  to the conviction which was expressed in many quarters twenty-seven  years ago, when the transcontinental  railway across Canada was completed  that the enterprise would never earn.,  enough to pay for tha axle grease  usee in the operation of the railway.  The company had grown to be one of  the largest corporations in the world.  It had established an all-British  route from London to the Orient and  Australia under a single management.  He paid a tribute to the foresight,  Intelligence and untiring energy of  the company, to whioh much of the  success which had attended the enterprise was due.  Admiral Sir Digby Morant proposed tho health of Mrs. Piers, and  presented her with the ivorv mallet,  encased ln n silver casket, with which  the new ship had been launched.  Mr. Arthur Piers, responding to the  toast, dealt at some length with the  gradual evolution of tho present Canadian Pacific route from England to  the Far East. Tho company had taken great chances in extending the  scope of Its operations, and the success which hnd attended those oper-  ntions was simply nn indication of  the rapid increase which had taken  Place in the   trade   between   Groat  Pa'!* Bnst      Sr0at0St C0,0ny' nnd tbe  Mother Uv*���������*������������������*r'������ Well,  In tho grounds of Llvesoy Hall, near  Blackburn, there is * spring called  "Mother Llvesey's well."

THE UGLY OCTOPUS.  8trong Words From Toronto Pulpit On  a Recent Sunday.  Rev. J, T. Sunderland spoke on a recent Sunday morning on the text "It  is more blessed to give than to receive." He strongly condemned that  spirit, too common in our day, which  wishes to get what does not belong to  it, and receive what it does not pay  for. He said, in part: What is a worthy aim of life for a man? Is it to  receive without rendering a full equivalent? Does any really high-minded  man want to get more tnan he gives?  What do we call a man, who, in business matters, obtains what'*''he makes  no proper return for? We" call him a  rogue or a swindler. Is it worse to be  a rogue or a swindler in business than  in other things? Is It more criminal to  rob a man than to rob society? Or  to rob In matters which the law takes  cognizance of than in matters whlcli  it does not? Says a distinguished an4  honored statesman: "The darkest hour  in the history of any young man is  that in which he first consciously cherishes the desire to get something for  nothing." History bears out the saying is true. Such a young man has  set his foot on a downward road. No  human being, at least, no one that Jias'  health and strength has any right to  want to get something for nothing; He  who cherishes such a dasire is nourishing in himself either the pauper or the  criminal habit of mind. He who, being able to support himself, is willing  to be supported by another, is in spirit  a pauper. He who is willing to get a  living by' any practice or business, no  matter how legal it may be, which does  not involve the rendering of a just and  full equivalent for what he receives, is  at heart a criminal; all that he lack*  is either the opportunity or the courage to make him a criminal de facto.  Here lies the greatest evil of lotteries and gambling. It is not so much  that men lose such or such sums of  money. That is bad enough. But the  worst evil lies in the demoralizing and  degrading influence of what is done,  on men's characters. It lies in th������  fact that gambling" and lotteries cultivate in men a willingness and a desire  to obtain something for nothing; to  get something that is not rightly theirs;  to gain possession of money which they  render no just equivalent. That spirit  always and everywhere undermines the  integrity and rots' the moral fibre of  the man or woman who harbors it.  We often find success in life measured by what men get or accumulate,  without rrff'reiice to the return they  rnako to society. No standard of mea-  ~sure ~could"be"more-false:���������It���������is���������the*  standard of the robber. Are we to call  that man successful who, by his financial shrewdness, amasses millions, and  does nothing with his wealth to benefit the world? Rather should we call  his life a lamentable and disgraceful  failure.  Are we to call that man successful  who has found a lucrative sinecure���������a  place with large pay but with littlo  or nothing to do, and little or no service to render to anybody? Rather  ought we to pity any man, and pray  God to have mercy on his poor, poverty-stricken, selfish soul, who desires  any such pauper place, A true man  wants to pay for all he gets in this  world; he Is not a mendicant. The  kind of place a real man seeks is ono  of activity, of influence, of achievement, of service, whoro he can be something better than a loach living on the  blood of others. He wants to do his  proper part���������his own, rigiit, strong  part���������In the world's work. He wants  to be of some use. He wants to lend  a hand in assuaging the world's sorrows, righting Its wrongs, and bringing  for humanity a better day. No onu  who is a man can for one moment be  willing to bo a pauper, or n parasite, or  a cipher, much less a robber.  The only rule of action that is for a  moment worthy of a true man is, not  to glvo as llttlo as ho can, but as much  as ho can; not to glvo merely as much  as ho receives, but moro, Ho who la  really a man desires to make some  positive contribution to tho world's advance.

These suckers also euuble it to drag  Its body into very narrow crevices,  from which scarcely any force will  avail to remove it.
