(Continued.)  CHAPTER III.  When 'Roger Olnndcnning had found  himself alone, after the constrained  departure of his brother, for a moment he felt almost dazed; his heart  beat in, great strangling throbs, and  the busy world outside seemed to  stand still.  He aroused himself by the greatest  effort to look life in the face once  more and bear the double blow that  had fallen on him. It had been his  own fault, this terrible thing that  had happened; he should never have  introduced his handsome, fascinating brother to the young girl he  loved, but to whem he had not as  yet had the courage to declare that  love. o   ���������  He had toiled hard, and had shared his earnings liberally with his  brother while Oscar was out of a  situation. Thus furnished with sriend-  ing-money and his expenses paid,  handsome Oscar seemed in no hurry  to find "something to do." When  Roger would remonstrate with him,  and remind him that he had to work  or starve, Oscar was always ready  with his answer, declaring enthusiastically that he was just on the  point of a big deal that would mean  a fortune. He generally added, graciously, that he would share it with  Roger,  dollar for dollar.  These schemes always proved visionary; they were sure' to fall  through, or fail to come to a head,  and at last Roger grew tired of listening to them or hoping for good  results. Ih ruminating over the matter, , Roger always said to himself  that Oscar was certainly extremely  anxious    to    work,  but    fate    was  ~against-himy-and~he-could-_find no.  congenial situation open to him, but  that his ill-fortune must take a turn  soon. And this great-hearted, innocent fellow thanked Heaven that he  was making suflicient for both, and  could help Oscar bridge over the present tide of ill luck.  That Sataa always finds mischief  for idle hands to do was clearly exemplified in this case. Roger thought  of that as he stood alone in the  judge's private inner office, battling  with the greatest sorrow that had  ever come to him.  While he had been busily toiling,  Oscar had found plenty of time to  visit Olive Kneeland���������to walk with  her, to drive with her, to accompany hor here and there, and make  lovo to her; whilo he���������ah! how blind  he had been to it all until the blow  full!  From that moment he meant to  tear all thought of beautiful Olivo  from his breast,., oven though it cost  him; his life; yet to give her up to  his own brother, handsome, indolent,  aflablb Oscar, wns moro than he  could endure with fortitude.  "Viiyy Heaven Iind pardon forme!"  he muttered, "I nlmost feel toward  him as Cain felt toward Abel, but  for her sake I will try and save him  from the consequence* of his crime.  Yes, I will do everything in my power for him because she loves him,  nnd to punish him would be to strike  n blow at her honrt!".  Crushing his hat firmly over his  eyes, he was nbout to pass hurriedly  out of the ofl)pc, wondering, meanwhile, where-'ho Should go first to  try nnd vnine thnt thousnnd dollars  which mennt so much to his brothor,  when Judge Kncolnnd's bell rung  eharply. Roger drew back, turning  pale to the lips. He prn.vod to  Heaven thnt the judge was not at  leisure, and had sent for him to  talk with him upon thc subject under discussion when thoy were interrupted, Great Oorll whot could ho  nay about that now, only to tell  him that he luul since learned that  it was useless (or him to aspire to  Olive's hand, for he had just discovered that she loved another, and that  othor his own brothor?  Then, too, every moment wasted  was fatal to 0������enr, for might not  that nots bo presented at any time?  Ho must make some excuso to leavo  the ofllco, Oscar would be waiting  for him.  Little dreaming what was in storo  tor him the privntn fwretnrv opened tho judo's door and entered his  pretence, one giiuice, and lie um not  take the second step forward, but  stood an if rooted to the spot.  Judgo Kneeland stood in the centre  of tho room,    his    fnco  fairly  livid  .*.....  j"  1   . ..*, 1  .>.   j-... ,  . I.,    !���������'  oyes afliunc with rage most terrible  to behold, nnd his lips flecked with  froth.  In his hand he held a ullp of paper,  Roger (tlfndcnning know almost beforo he spoke that it was the fatal  tiiile. Grt'tit '!i>d! he wan ton Into  to save Oscnr, for Olive's dear flnko!  "What it 't'o meaning of fhl������s������"  thundered tlu- judge, fining him, tho  very incarnation of fury. ".SpeakI  what have you to hny to this?"  But Roger could not uponk; tho  words ho would havt- uttf-rod dii-d  sway in hiu throat in n Reaping  croun. .in an Aw.\*ui W inii   vou-  scqtfeA.es' ol BScaf'S^foiiy .swept De-  fore his mind's eye. He saw him under arrest, then in a prison coll, and  Olive's Kir form bowed with grief,  an outcast from her father's heart  and home because she dared plead  with her father for mercy ] for her  lover, and to say that she would be  true to him and wed him at last,  though she had to wait long years  for him. Yes, he saw it all mapped  out before him as in a rapidly moving panorama.  "What have you to say?" roared  Judge Kneeland, fiercely. "How dared you, poltroon and craven that  you are, turn and sting the hand  that gave you bread! Do not mention my daughter's name, or even refer to her in any way; she can not  save you; she is dropped out of the  subject altogether. I have diflicult  work to remember that I am a gentleman, and one who must respect  the law, so terribly am I tempted to  chastise you on the spot, so greatly  am I incensed. This is your writing;  I would know it anywhere; it was  made payable to yourself, and you  collected the money. What have y/)u  to say as to why the full penalty of  tne law snould not be imposed upon  you, and thus remove oue forger  from the many criminals about us?  Your audacity is wonderful to me;  the more my mind dwells upon it,  the angrier I get. There is no punishment too severe for the man who  steals another's purse or forges his  name. A man who *could commit  either crime would in time murder,  if occasion but held open that door  by which the guilty man could escape or cover up his tracks." }������������������  While Judge Kneeland had been  hurling out these words between his  set teeth, Roger Glendenning had  .been_thinkin'g_w.i.th_the__j:apidity_.oi.  lightning. He could not betray  Olive's lover���������his own brother. Ah!  no! he could not; ���������his. whole soul  shrunk from it. Then there was but  one alternative, only one, and that  was to shift the terrible affair upon  his own shoulders and bear the brunt  of it. What had he to lose, There  was no one in the wide world who  cared for him; no one would weep  for him. His life was a blank; hope,  ambition, love, lay in ruins at his  feet���������the future looked black as  night, without one gleam of slight  to brighten his soul. If thc penalty  had been death, he would havo dropped on his knees and prayed tho angels to send it to him thon and  there  "What have you to say?" repeated  Judge Kneeland, his anger increasing with every Jjreath,  Roger Glendenning stood boforo  him like a figure carved In marble,  his arms folded tightly over his  heaving chest, his head bout low on  his breast, and his face white as it  would ever bo in death.  "What can I say, sir," ho fivltorcd,  hoarsely; "do with niu���������ns-you will  ���������if���������if���������you refuso to glvo mo the���������  tho opportunity to go out nnd raise  tho money, which I am sure I could  do in nn hour's timo. I���������"  "What! Ask mo to compound a felony, I, whose duty it is to punish  such dastardly ofl'onces to tho very  extent of nay powor! You hnvo tho  temerity to ask this of mo?''  As he spoke ho jorkod tho boll-ropo  violently, and his socrctnry know  too well what that action meant to  expect any mercy from tho man before him.  In response to his summons ono of  tho court officers entered, inquiring  of tho judgo, "Rid you ring, Hir?"  "Take thnt man into custody," ho  said, harshly, pointing to Roger  Glendenning. "I havo just dotiwcud  him in a most atrocious forgery of  my name. Ho makes no denial 0/ his  guilt. Tako him bolow, I will seo you  vory shortly,"  It wns one of tho hardont dutlos  tho officer sver porformod, placing  tho youug privsto secretary undor  arrest, for ho had always hold Glendenning in such high esteem, Onco,  and not very long ago, whon tho officer's little boy lay dying, and he  had no money to pay for tho luxuries the doctor ordered, it was this  samo kind-hearted young socrotary  who cume to him, placod aHen-dol-  tnr hill in hia hand, bidding him not  to fool offended with tho offer, but to  tuko ll lor in* iiLiic one's take, Tho  mother of the littlo ono had said over since thnt her child owod his ro-  covory to Judgo Knooland's noblo  secretary.  anff-'Btre rdbWr*������Wung ��������� to" aiwr mem.  Left to himself. Judge Kneeland  paced hurriedly up and down the  room with rapid strides.  "Great God! of all men in the  world, Roger Glendenning is the  very last man whom I would have  suspected of a desire to commit a  forgery. I would not havo believed,  the evidence of my own eyes hardly,  had ho not admitted it by not daring to deny the accusation; and to  make the matter worse, I was just  about to give my fair young Olive  to him, trusting to his steady habits to make her a good husband, I  am sure Olive cares for the fellow.  Zounds! what could a smart maa.liko  myself have been thinking of to allow them to be thrown so constantly into each other's society? It was  a, great mistake."...

The door of tbe Settlement library  opened and in rushed the children, all  ages and sizes, from the kindergarten  to the highest grade of three of the  large public schools.  The librarian examined the cards  ���������which had been filled out at home with  the signature of the child and that of  the father.  "Alfretta, you have forgotten to put  down ���������.what your father does," said  Miss Jones as Bhe took the card from a  little colored girl.  "My name la Miss Alfretta," replied  the child, "and my father Is a traveling  man."  "He's not, Miss Jones," interrupted  Tom Brown. "He's just a common  porter on the train." ������  "Well," said Miss Alfretta, "doesn't  he travel, and lf he travels Isn't he a  traveling man, I'd like to know?"  "John, you have not told what your  father does." Miss Jones turned to  the child next ln line.  "I don't want to tell, and he said I  wasn't to tell, neither," replied John,  looking half scared.  "But I must know what your father  does before you can take any books."  "Wel),"-poor little John caught his  breath���������"I do so want to take books,  but If he knows I told he'll lick me.  I'll just whisper lt to you, and no one  else need hear." So he went close to  MtssJLoMS-aud^puttlng his arm around  her neck, whispered, "He's the bearded  lady at the dime museum."  "Next!" Miss Jones wrote something  hurriedly on the card.  "I want to explain about mine." A  little girl stepped forward eagerly. "I  wrote my own name myself, but my  father, being dead, was unable to write  his, so I wrote It for him, but my  mother wrote hers herself."  "Annie, you haven't told us what  your father does."  "Please, be works hard. He says he  does," said Annie.  "Well, what does he work hard at?"  "He works at being an Invalid."  "My father is a miller," said the next  "My mother is a housekeeper."  "My father is a carpenter."  "Mine ls a peddler, for he peddles."  "I don't know what to do about my  card," said Julia Trusky, pushing her  way toward tho desk, "You see," Iff  this way. My mother has divorced my  father, and I doa't know If I ought to  send the card to him or wait until next  week, for.theu I am to havo a new father."��������� LIpplucott's Magazine.  . t.v.   ......

How They Handle Manure For  Profit In That Land.  About five years ago I got a manure  spreader, direct from America,, through  seeing the advertisement in your valuable paper, writes John Arrea Mather  in American Agriculturist 1 believe  this was,the first ever introduced into  Britain. Two years after I got another  machine from the same makers, with  several improvements over the   first  , one, through agents they had by this  time appointed in England. Both these  machines have spread a large quantity  of stable and other rough manure  since I got them, spreading considerably over 100 acres every year with  from 16 to 20 loads per acre. They  are simply Invaluable, and during the  last year several farmers in our  neighborhood are going in for them.  When the fields we wish   to manure  j are near the   yard,    we   haul   with  I spreaders direct from covered cattle  yards, and in doing this we save all  the expense of hand spreading���������about  $6 per acre I.would.say. Then the  machine does the work so much bet-  i ter, tearing and pulverizing all sorts  of manure, but fine manure It does to  perfection.  We are in the habit here of putting  most of the manure on oat stubble  (which followed grass or meadow, or  lea as we call it) in autumn, plowing  It under with a furrow 10 inches deep  on land to be devoted to green crops  ���������, the next season. In March we harrow and cultivate and clean several  times, as we have opportunity, up to  the beginning of May, when we begin  ' to sow turnips. We mix 336 ponnds  of superphosphate (containing' 2b' to  28 per cent, of soluble phosphate) with  112 pounds of bone meal containing  4% per cent ammonia and 50 to 54  per cent phosphates costing about  $3.25 for each acre. This ls sown broadcast (not with the spreader, but  another machine) and harrowed, then  , we ridge up into 27-inch drills and sow  the turnips with a double drill sowing  machine, and single out with a 7-inch  hoe when the turnips are large enough.  ' We could not grow turnips without artificial manure. I have tried it on oats  and beets and did not find it profitable,  also on grass for hay, but nitrate of  soda is good for this purpose.  j Our rotation is as follows: Two  years in grass (first year possibly  hayed), third year oats, fourth turnips and a few potatoes, fifth barley  and oats sown along with clover and  gfalI~seedsr~We~pull~half-of-the-tur--  nips, take two rows and leave the next  two, and so on. Then we turn on sheep  to feed on the turnips left unhar-  vested, making a fold with temporary  fences or huddles big enough for 300  sheep to feed three or four days. We  have dry soil and a dry climate, and  of all our farming we find the feeding of sheep most profitable, and no  other way can you enrich land more,  particularly If you give   the   sheep,  , which we Invariably do, corn (grain)  and care when eating the turnips.  1    Manure. made after   Christmas   Is  1 left in covered cattle yards until midsummer, after the busy hay harvest ls  , over, when we haul it out with an  ordinary farm cart, a ��������� single horse  dump cart oq two wheels, and make  a large heap that would do ten acres,  ! taking the horse and cart over and  then treading it firmly. When thus  completed, we cover the pile all over  the top with earth or dead weeds and  It remains this way till the autumn  with very little waste. This heap (or  mlddlng as we call Jt) is oval shaped  so that the rain runs off. We arrange  these heaps ln such a way that the  spreader has not far to go without  working, and when you have two machines with an assistant to help teamster to fill, we get over a lot of work.  When one ls being emptied, the other  Is getting filled. Then by putting  Btuds In the wheels to keep them  from skidding, we can spread in frost  or snow. It is also very valuable for  spreading manure on grass land, it  spreads so evenly and pulverizes so  thoroughly. Of courso on a large farm  like this (600 acres) the hauling out  is a big job. I would not get along  without these machines now on any  account.  CHEERFUL GENEROSITY.  The Womu Who Takes Pleaawe M  the HapptneM ef Others.  A woman who has taught herself td  give, up cheerfully, taking pleasure la  the happiness of others, becomes generous in mind and heart, giving help to  all with whom she associates.  She is able to rise above the mean in-  flueuce of gossip or scandal, for in-  stanoe, because, being generous minded, ihe can give others the benefit of  the <loubt and the kindness of spirit  that Is part of generosity keeps her  faith strong ln the good and makes her  ! doubi". the bad, says the New York  Telegram. The spirit will go even  farthir, for if the bad is proved It  gives assistance either by word or act,  not bitterly or grudgingly, but sweetly  and kindly because of the generous  na*ure that prompted.  Much that passes for generosity ls  . either Indifference or a form of self  cor celt. No desirable reputation ls  mere easy to gain than one for generosity, as *a woman may by sending  caitoft gowns to poor relatives, giving  m'sney or other gifts io friends or  j philanthropies, and in other such ways  I bting quoted as a person who gives. .  ; This may not be generosity, though  Sndoubtedly it is giving, and it ls pleasant and gratifying to be known as a  benefactor, no matter in how limited a  way. Indifference that passes for generosity is that form of giving that Is  done because it Is expected and it is ,  easier to give than to refuse.  True generosity lies deeper than, either of these, and with it is happiness.

Character In a Room,'  The suggestion that a room should be  a reflection of oneself is more than  worth giving heed to. It is worth acting upon.

There are  two aspects to the Individuality of a  room arrangement, and these are the  general and the personal, and they  should pleasantly agree. Every room  should portray a personal note.

THE  NEWS,   CUMBERLAND, BRITISH   COLUMBIA.  i  it  mas  I  IVI  I  But There to Quick Relief From Itching and  Thorough Cure in  Dr. Chase's Ointment.  It may be truthfully stated that piles  produce ihore excruciating pain, misery and wretchedness of feeling than  any known disease; Life becomes a  perfect burden during the attacks, of  itching, burning,  stinging pains.  It is a great mistake to imagine that  the effects of piles are local, for, as a  matter of, fact, they sap the vitality  of mind and body and slowly but surely lead to the ruination of the health.  This is true ol itching and protruding as well as of bleeding piles, which,  because of the loss of blood, are more  rapid in their disastrous effects.  Dr. Chase's Ointment brings almost  Instant relief from the itching, burning, stinging sensations of piles and  is a positive and thorough cure for  every form of this wretched, torturing, and oftentimes stubborn disease.  This has been proven in so many  thousands of cases that there is no  longer any room for doubt that Dr.  Chase's Ointment is the mo������t satisfactory treatment for piles that was  ever discovered.  Mr. John Johnson, Cowley, Alta.,  writes:���������"Three years ago I Was cured  of blind, itching piles of 27 years  standing by using Dr. Chase's Ointment. I used to think that death  would be the only relief I would ever  get from the terrible misery of piles.  Often I was laid up for three days at  a time and at other times worked  when I should have been in bed.  "Dr. Chase's Ointment is worth sixty dollars a box instead of sixty cents.  I am a different man since using lt.  I am farming all the time and never  miss a day. Words fail to express my  gratitude for the cure this ointment  made for me. I cannot tell half as  much about it as it deserves. Anyone doubting this can write direct to  me."  Frequently when doctors have failed  to cure piles and the"surgeon's knife  has proven futile Dr. Chase's Ointment has effected thorough cure; 60  cents a box, at all dealers, or Edmanson, Bates & Co., Toronto.

USE OF THE LEECH.  8aid to Be Growing In Toronto���������What  Druggists Say.  The use of leeches is said to be growing in Toronto. Leeches are mostly  bought by people who have had a blaw  or fall, causing a blue spot to appear  where the blood has congested. They  apply leeches to take out the tblood from  these spots;  The best leeches are known as tha  Mediterranean leech and come from  San Gulguela, Spain. They are about  three inches long, with a soft smooth  body tapering to each extremity, and  are marked with from ninety tb ond  hundred fine annulations; their backs  are olive green with six rusty red  longitudinal stripes. The ends are  terminated by suckers.  A peculiar medical law provides that  -AjSjtuggisljam^  may i*U them to persons, but only a  ���������d&otor is allowed to apply It. One well-  known druggist says that he once applied a leech to an abrasion on a man'i  forehead, because a doctor could not  be got as tho hour was late. "After  the leech had gorged itself and rolled  o������ the mark left by the leech tolad so  profusaly that it took me over four  hours to stop it; and then the ma.n's  fact was ten times worse with tha  acids I had to use."  Some druggists state that the appll.  cation of leeches is not to be recommended; the cure Is almost a* bad ai  the disease. The leech has three small,  sharp, semi-circular teeth that radiaU  from a centre. They cut de������p, and always leave a scar of the same shaipa as  themselves. On the common leech the  mouth where tho cutting teeth ar������  found Is at the anterior sucking disc  Just back of this, and on the uppar  ���������Ida, are ten small black atpots that  serve as eyes. The usual quantity of  blood drawn by an average leech averages from one drachm to half' an  ounoa, It Is digested vary slowly, and  after toeing gorged in this manner, ths  leech lies for severa.1 days beforo It regains its njinpal alae.and ajjpeajunc*  Unexpected Death.

It seems the star of agricultural empire has deviated from ita course and  ts headed northwest, an<i even perhaps  .9. little towards north-northwest.  Wheat raising In the Peace country Is  already demonstrated as not only ��������� possible but safer than Dakota was in the  eighties. With the development of the  Grand Trunk Pacific, which cuts the  valley on its way from Edmonton to  'the Yellow-head Pass and the Pacific,  this will become the logical source of  vrheat supply for Japan and the eastern countries of the Asiatic continent.  The Opulent Mackenzie Basin.  The very fact that the enormous Mackenzie basin produoed fur well In proportion to its extent has led to the assumption that it could produce nothing else. Tbe fur bundles have brought  ���������with them tar stains and the smell of  tar, for the banks of the Athabasca are  black and oozing with the stuff for  miles; native coal has always been used  at the company's posts for blacksmith-  ���������ing purposes, and the Yellow Knife Indians of Slave I^ake were so named be-  cause"tS^���������u^ed''ccTOeFTfflIW"S:=fBr~a:3i���������  ���������these reasons It has long been known  there was mineral wealth in the north*  But it ls only recently people came to  realize that the coldest winter days on  iyj.ke Athabasca could be duplicated  *osily in Manitoba and North Dakota,  and it was the Catholic Mission that  first showed that garden produce could  be successfully grown in the north  country. In the old days potatoes were  not grown' oven at Fort Garry, where  ���������Winnipeg now stands; .the missions  'have pushed thoir cultivation to Port  .Good Hope or tihe Mackenzie, 14 miles  south of the Arctic Circle.  A Great Agricultural Country,  But Good Hope la called 1,070 miles  troiii Edmonton, mostly north, though  a little west, Grossing the zone of possible cultivation one has to travel almost as many miles as he covers In going from New York to Chicago and back  .again���������and In none of this atrip would  the conditions of llfo. be harder than  they are In certain long-settled parts of  Norway and Russia, Thore is an  abundance of game in tho forests an<?  on the prairies, though tlu> game would,  pt course, not long survive suttlwinent.

AN HISTORIC FIGHT.  House of Lords at Last Consents to Bill  to Legalize Marriage With a Deceased Wife's Sister.  After an opposition extended through  many years  to  the principle  Involved, ;  the British  Hxuse of  Lords  has  con- j  sented to the passage of the bill legal- '  izing marriage with a deceased  wife's  sister  in   the  British  possessions.      It  is not likely that the House of Com- j  mons will throw out the measure, and .  as a result such marriages where legal ,  lvin the colonies will be valid  in Great  x>ritain.  Lord Strathcona has been the j  chief advocate of the bill, and the ar- |  guments used in its favor were thosa  with which he must have been familiar  twenty yeara ago in the Dominion Parliament.  A Law of Henry Vlll.  A history of the subject dates back  to the reign of Henry VIII., who waa  peculiarly qualified as an authority on  all subjects relating to marriage and  Who forbade a man to marry the slater of his deceased wife. The law then  passed was later construed to mean  that such a marriage might be invalidated; but in 1835 such a union was  made not only voidable, but void In  fact. This was Lord Lyndhurat's Act,  under which previous marriages of the  kind wero declared legal, "but later ones  illegal. At the time, the understanding  waa that the prohibition should be removed at the next session of Parliament. Nevertheless expectations ln  this respect were notf realized, and  time after time the Commons or  Lords refused to Interfere.  Introduced by Prince of Wales.  In 1841 Lord Thorncllffe endeavored  to have the Lords repeal the act, and  the next year the Commons defeated a  similar bill iby a narrow margin.     In  1847 a Royal Commission was appointed to examine the marriage laws, and  the result was another bill, Introduced  in the Commons in 1849 by Mr. Stuart j  Wortley.   This  bill  passed its  second ,  reading,  but did not  reaoh   its   final  stages.   Next year it was passed.     In  1851 Lord St. Germans introduced the I  bill in the Lords, but ..it was again de- I  feated.    In 1855 the Commons    again'  assented to the bill, but the Lords remained obdurate. Since then the measure has been pressed,  in varied form,  a score of times, but always the Lords  has  .thrown  it  out.    Sometimes^  too,  the  Commons dissented,  but    usually  approved.  There: was no change in the  ^oEds^evenan^SZa^wJien^KLng^dWArd,.  then Prince of Wales,  introduced the  ���������bill.  On that historic occasion the vote  was 101 against to 81.  The Law In Canada.  Until 1882 the law ln Canada was aa  the law ln England previous to the Act  of 1835, but In 1880 Mr. Desire Girouard  (now Mr.  Justice,   and  father of  Sir  Percy Girouard) Introduced a measure  to make marriage legal with the deceas- j  ed wife's sister.    It waa seconded by  Mr. Cameron, of North  Victoria  and,'  eloquently argued by them both.   The*'  opposition to the measure was based  primarily on Scriptural grounds, it be- \  ing held that Leviticus xvlli, 18, and i  xx, 21, forbade the marriage. The very  best authority, however, declared   the  interpretation put upon these passages  to be far fetched and unreasonable. Tha  fact that the Churoh of England prayer book forbade the marriage was held  to be due to an imperfoct translation  from  the original  Hebrew.      It  waa  shown that tho Jews never construed  the versea to prohibit the marriages.  In short, the case waa made conclusive  on tho grounds of Scriptural Interpretation.  Objeotions Raited.  The objections founded on aoclal  grounds appear to have foeon more  formidable If loss concrete. Nobody  was nlblo to arise and plainly state  them, but thero wore many vague and  mournful all union* to tho deplorable  social conditions that would result in  families whero a man's sister-in-law  was domiciled and his wife living.  After all, tho ohlcif difliculty was found  in the fnot that the Roman Catholic  Church disapproved of tho marriages,  .iiul that tlio Church of England fur-  bade thom. Thu House hesitated to  take a stop that mlwlit ho construpil as  an affront to either of thoso boilkt*  Uldlculty was alno encountered in tho  marring*) lawn of Nova Scotia which  fxUled by on liriporlul Aot, and which  It wuh not In tho powor of tho Dominion Ciovermnont lo amend. Finally,  nfler great tribulation, thu bill worked  itu way through ihe Mount and Into the  Kti������,tut������������s of the country In 1SS2. That  ihrro Iiiih boen nny harm dont ns a rn-  sult th������Tf> is no <'vidt'iico to uliow, With  the passage of I lio law In Groat Britain, tho principle! that marriage with n  (ieceaiitnl'n wifu *inlor is right will bo  i-"ongnt/,iitl in HtiKlaml aa regard* such  nnliiiih effected in Urltish ponaoHHlona  which have removed the prohibition.  PREMATURE BURIAL.  -rfte "ven. Archdeacon Colley, who  was nearly burled alive in his infancy,  stated that he had prepared plans  whereby part of his house at Stockton,  near Rugby, was to be turned into a  "parish parlor," where poor people, living in one or two rooms with a large  family, could bring their dead and pay  them loving attention. The rooms would  be pleasantly furnished and filled wHh  flowers, and the bodies could remain  there until signs of decomposition had  set in.  Cost of Coal For Fleets.

The florist frowned as be took up an  order for a table decoration. "That  will never do," he muttered. After  calling up the customer and suggesting a change, he told bis new cleric a  few things.  "You must never take an order that  calls for a mixture of mignonette and  roses," he said. "A centerpiece of  those two flowers wouldn't last half  through the luncheon. They simply  wilt one another. I don't know why,  but they can't get along together.  "It is true of many flowers. Pansies,  for instance, last twice aa long if they  are not. combined with any other flower, and the same may be said of violets. Jonquils and daffodils, on the  other band, seem to get a new lease  of life il you combine considerable  green with them. Carnations will go  all to pieces If you combine them with  roses, although the roses do not seem  to be affected.  "It is more striking in combinations  of green with flowers. If you try to  use in entirely different type of foliage from what the flower is used to,  it won't last so long. So I never put  feathery foliage with lilies of the valley, for you know Its natural foliage  is a thick leaf. I never use thick leaves  with carnations, for their foliage ls of  the feathery type. It isn't as though  the flowers fought, but they seem to  grieve at being misunderstood."  wi; .������!!���������,,   Hg>ir������������   qiinnlUrl  hv   P������f|llsh  Potior rn T'rWUM'i ^nhj������������f.  .Sumo v������r> dl.������:<iiieeiti������tf llguros wero  nif.ji'lwl to tho iwetlng nf the London  Koei.'ty for the Piuvcntlon of Pr*ma-  tnre  Tlurlal  at   H!f������om������bury town   hall  ^  ������������������   '���������-    1!

Formerly male robins were snared by tht  clinking of two copper pennies near a  dummy bird. The dummy was perched  on a twig smeared with bird lime, and  cock robin, attracted by tbe sound and  suspecting a rival, flew at him with  blood in hts eye. This is in violation of  the bird laws in the United States, and  no one who lives where robins make  their home In confidence Is likely to  give the odd trick so unpleasant a  finale, The clinking coppers servtf, a  much more agreeable purpose as a  means of rendering cock robin soda*  bla.  ,  Janln's Rebuke.  Jules Janln, tbe celebrated French  writer and critic, was not malicious,  but occasionally he would say a severe  thing, as If it were wrung from him  without his being able to hold it back,  Ono day a rich but 111 natured man,  who made sad havoc of the French  language, called upon Janln and began  a tirade upon somo trivial matter in  execrable French.  After listening politely for some  time Janln at last replied to his visitor  In Latin.  "What do you mean, M. Janln?" demanded the man angrily, "I don't understand you.   t can't speak Latin."  "Try, sir, try!" cried tho groat critic.  "Vou could not speak It worse than  you do Freocu."  .,_i,, i ���������   i i.

"The bath of the next century," saya  T. Baron Russell in his book "A Hundred Years Hence," "will lave the  body speedily with oxygenated water  delivered with a force that will render  rubbing unnecessary, and beside it will  stand the drying cupboard, lined with  some quickly moving arrangement of  soft brushes and fed with a highly desiccated air, from which almost in a  moment the bather will emerge dried  and with a skin gently stimulated and  perhaps electrified to clothe himself  quickly and pass down the lift to his  breakfast, which he will eat to the accompaniment of a summary of the  morning's news read out for the benefit of the family or whispered into his  ears by a talking machine."  Dishwashing will be easy in that  day. Dirty plates and dishes, for example, "will be simply dropped one by  one into an automatic receptacle, swilled clean by water delivered with force  and charged with nascent oxygen, dried  by electric heat and polished by electric force, being finally oxygen bathed  as a superfluous act of sanitary cleanliness before being sent to table again.  And all that has come off the plates will  drop through tbe scullery floor into the  destructor beneath to be oxygenated  and made away with."  There will be many other improvements. Trains will gather speed more  rapidly; moving platforms will do away  with the need of stopping trains at every station. People will have more accidents to avoid, and they will be cleverer in avoiding them. On small flying machines they will visft mountain  tops on Saturday afternoons "for (nonalcoholic) picnics.'' Actors will only  play once in one part, for their performances will be reproduced by a perfected kinetoscope and phonograph.  THE FIRST BALLOON.  Sew tho CowC������m������ Hon*.  "For the Information of those who  art in the habit of sending a dog for  their cows I wish to report a little experience which I have had along this  line.

Modest Greatness,  One day a letter was received at the  postoffice ln Paris bearing the following Inscription: "To the Greatest  French Poet." The letter carrier was  Instructed to deliver lt to Victor Hugo,  who refused to receive It and tent It  to Lamartlne. Tbls genius also declined to accept the letter and passed  It on to Alfred Do Musset. The latter,  equally modest, re-Bent It to Victor  Hugo, who finally accoptod It Thi  letter had reached Its destination.���������  Llpplncott's Magazine.  GLEANINGS.  \\aar.

Result   of   the   Experiments   of   tbe  Monlgolfler Brothers.  Proceeding ou the principle that heated air expands and so becomes lighter,  bulk for bulk, than air at the ordinary  temperature, tho brothers Stephen and  Joseph Moutgolfier filled a paper bag  with heated air, which rose to the ceiling of the room. This preliminary success was rapidly followed up, and they  gradually increased the size of tbe balloons experimented with until they  were so satisfied with their progress  that In 1783 they gave a public exhibition, sending up a linen b llloon 105 feet  ln circumference, which was Inflated  over a fire supplied with small bundles  of chopped straw. The balloon succeeded beyond their utmost expectation, and  after rising to a height of over 6,000  feet it descended ten minutes after In  a field a mile and a half away. The  next balloon carried a car, in which  were a sheep, a cock and a duck.  The success of this further experiment Induced M. Pllatre de Rosier and  the Marquis d'Arlandes to risk their  Uvea by making the imt ascent In the  new and wonderful nachlne. Their  balloon, which was lorty-flve feet tn  diameter and seventy-five feet high and  was Inflated with hot air, passed over  Paris to the great astonishment of the  people, attaining aa altitude of balf a  mile. Ballast was then for the flrst  time employed In regulating the ascending power of the balloon. The first  venture was followed by others, and  De Bozler, the first to ascend, was also  the flrst to meet his death ln this manner, having been killed, with a companion, by the burning of his balloon  near Boulogne.

Tfce Chance That Takes Place When  They Enter the "Water.  The appearance of the keeper of the  penguins at the zoo, with his pail of  live gudgeon, is the signal for sudden  and intense excitement in the cages.  The penguins wave their little flippers  and waddle to the door, whence they  peer eagerly down the wooden steps  leading to tlie pool. The cormorant  croaks and sways from side to side,  and the darters poise their snaky heads  and spread their batlike wiugs. At the  water's edge tlie penguins do not  launch themselves upon the surface  like other water fowl, but Instantly  plunge beneath.  Ouce below water an astounding  change takes place.

They were engaged in  the taking of Detroit and Niagara, in  the battles of Queenston Heights, River Raisin, Fort Meigs, Sandusky, Beaver Dam, Chippewa, Lundy's Lane,  Fert Erie and various skirmishes, in  which some of them were severely  wounded.  "That many of your memorialists  pursued a lucrative traffic with the Indians ln the American territory prior to  the war, yet they abandoned all their  promising expectations, spurned the alluring offers held out by the republic,  and chose rather poverty with a -firm  adherence to the cause of their JKing  than riches purchased at the expeinse  of honor. The treaty of Ghent obstructing the commerce they formerly carried  on with red m6n, most of them are reduced to hopeless indigence, with their  unhappy families.  "There remains to them, however,  this cheering consolation, which helps  _to_ sustain Jbeny In the midst_of misfortune, that tliey sacrificed e'verypflrig  but honor for the sake of their country, and on the generosity of that country, which never yet abandoned a friend  In distress, they cast themselves, fond- [  ly hoping she wilO-no longer suffer them  to lament over the melancholy effects  of their patriotism.  "Although no mercenary notives influenced your memorialists to join the  sacred ranks of liberty in service of  their Sovereign, yet they respectfully  assert their exertions were of as great  moment to the cause they supported as  the officers of the Indian Department  in the flrst American war, who by an  order from the Lords of the Treasury,  dated Aug. 31, 1786, had half-pay conferred on them. Tour memorialists trust  that the gracious Sovereign will make  the same provision for them, and they  urge this request the most earnestly as  their number Is now reduced to 13,  whereas the officers of 1786 amounted  to 35.

The twists and turns necessary to  follow the active little fish are mado  wholly by the strokes of one wing and  .the cessation of movement in the other,  and the fish are chased,. caught and  swallowed without the slightest relaxation of speed ih a submarine flight  which is quite as rapid as that of most  birds which take their prey in,midair.  In less than two minutes some thirty  gudgeon are caught and swallowed below water, the only appearance of the  birds on the surface being made by one  or two bounds from tbe depths, when  the head and shoulders leap above the  surface for a second and then disappear.  Any attempt to remain on the surface leads to ludicrous splashing and  confusion, for the submarine bird cannot float. It can only fly below the  surface.

The tide  moves   J   Slowly   yet  but none the lesc surely.   The rilling  un of a country, the inye-tmont ot  capital; prosperity, all travel hand  in hand, each one is contingent on  the other, and the prosperity <f  ������  oountry will not be assured by sud  den explosions like the disonv ries  of a fow gold or silver   tt ines,  but  by the steady, plow creeping of the  lava flow���������the coming tf the mul  tjtude.   Years may pans* before thi*  stream HseH high onough to pass a  range of mountains, but when   the  spill takes place, tho  oountry  beyond is flooded, and flooded quick-  ly    The stream of mnnkind  however, does not flow to barren lands,  and were it not for tho remoteness  of British Columbia, Bhi������  long  ere  thiw would have been overwhelmed  by the tide of prosperity, the wave  of immigration, for   preeminently  among British North American pro*  viucea is she suited for a mixed pop-  ulation.

Hudson's   Biv,  and British Columbia,   The;  first  wt I soon be settled   up,   ni'/rtrou*  climate and all, and   the second,  waiting paiienily those many yearn,  is now looked at by  thousands  ot  aegt-r eyes.   The  mainland   \mn  Wii partly known fur  some >������*������������  but Vancouver Island, the garden  of the Province, is as vet a terra incognita and EaPtcn people cannot  quite .realize that this Island, divided by the 50th parallel, has a climate as mild a? England���������a welcome change irom tho severity of  the North west Ontario, or Quebec.  Of natural resources ro much has  been said thiil it is like repealing  an old story., yet those who are apt  to give passing thought to the  Island as a wind swept rock of  bleak climate and unfertile soil,  wiil be amazed when tbey know the  truth. Fruit, dairyinp, bees,  poultry., cattle raising, are pint a  few of the profitable pursuits the  Island is capable of supporting,  and thousands of acres on the  Island and adjacent mainland  coast are capable of high cultivation, The same land iormer  ly denounced as not worth a dollar  a hundred acres, i������ now being  eagerly sought out, and in a short  time aU available land on the  Coast line wil' h*ve been secured.  True, much of ��������� he Island land is  heavily tiinbe.<d, but so valuable  has this timber grown to he that  prices realweu ure in many cases  more than enough to p-ay for the  land. But by no means in ihto land  all heavily timbered. Many large  tracts exist which mxn very easily  be rendered fit for cultivation; The  present activity on the part at the  C P R Co will without daubt result  in the railway extension to the  Northern end of the Island, and  then the rush will be on. And a.  country with undeveloped ayricult  ural fishing, limber and mining resources, will boom. Meanwhile  "let"^vWy^uTTg~maTrof-the~(.'Ountry"  secuie a piece of land before it is too  late. By not doing bo he is selling  bi- birthright.   7  Alderman James Reid, who has  in the past been instrumental in  imposing a tax on skilled labour,  in the way of making all artisans  and tradesmen pay an annual licence, evidently does not believe in  practising what he preaches. For  some years the Reid establishment  has been a boarding house, and ban  never yet paid a licence. If the  Council fail to treat all alike under  the section of tbt* by-law by virtue  of which they make all businesses  not particularly specified, pay, it is  probable thnt there will be inform-'  atlon laid, and in any case, the col-  lectoi will meet with refusals to pay  renewals in many cases.
