"I quitted Moscow on the loth of  July."  , "And Nadia also had to leave Moscow  on that date. Her letter told me so expressly."  "She waa at Moscow on the 15th of  July?" asked Ivan Ogareff.  "Yes, certainly at that date."  "Very well," replied Ivan Ogareff.  Then, recollecting himself, he added:  "But. no; I was forgetting. 1 was  about to confound dates. It is unfortunately too probable that your daughter has had to cross the frontier, and  only one hope remains���������that,she may  have stopped on receiving news of the  Tartar invasion!"  Wassili Feodor hung down his head.  He knew Nadia, and he knew well that  nothing would prevent her setting off.  By this statement Ivan Ogareff had  just committed gratuitously an act of  real cruelty; With one word he could  reassure Wassili Feodor.  Although Nadia had passed the frontier under the circumstances previously described, Wassili Feodor, by comparing the date at which his daughter  was certainly at Nljnl Novgorod and  the date of the order forbidding any one  to leave ft, would without doubt draw  this conclusion���������that Nadia could not  have been exposed to the dangers of  an invasion and that she was still, in  spite of herself, on the European territory of the empire.  Ivan Ogareff might have said that  word. > He did not say it. Wassili Feodor withdrew heartbroken. After that  interview his last hope was destroyed.  During the two following days the  grand duke several times asked for  Jhe pretended Michael Strogoff and had  'hinTrepeaTairtfiaThTTli^  imperial cabinet of the New palace.  Ivan Ogareff, prepared for all those  questions, answered without ever hesitating. He did not conceal designedly  that the government of the czar had  been altogether taken by surprise by  the invasion; that the rising had been  prepared with the greatest secrecy;  that the Tartars were already masters  of the line of the Obi when the news  reached Moscow, and Anally that nothing was ready in the Russian provinces  to throw Into Siberia troops sufficient  to repel the invaders.  Afterward Ivan Ogareff, entirely  free in his movements, began to study  Irkutsk, the state of its fortifications,  their weak points, in order eventually  to make use of those observations If  any circumstance should prevent the  consummation of his treason. He devoted himself moro particularly to the  examination of the Bolcliaia gate,  whlcli ho Intended treacherously to surrender. Twice at night ho came to Inspect that gate nnd tho fortifications  around It. He walked about there without nny fear of exposing 'himself to the  missiles of tho besiegers, whose llrst  posts were less thnn a verst from the  ramparts. Ho kuow woll Hint he wns  uot exposed���������nny. even that ho waa  recognized. Ho hnd hnd a glimpse of  a shnilow which had glided to tho foot  of the ramparts.

CHAPTER XIX.  HE plans of Ivan Ogareff  had been laid with the  greatest care, and, unless  son������e unlikely circumstance should occur, they  must succeed. It was  necessary that the Bol-  chaia gate should be without defenders at the moment when he should do-  liver it up to tbe Tartars. Thus at that  moment It would be indispensable that  the attention of the besieged should be  drawn to another point of the city;  hence a diversion agreed upon with the  emir. That diversion had to take place  along the suburbs of Irkutsk, up and  down the right bank of the river.  The attack on those two points would  be made very earnestly and at the same  time a feigned attempt to cross the Angara on its left baik. The Bolchaia  gate would then be probably abandoned,  especially as on that side the advance  posts, which were said to be at some  distance off, would seem to have been  collected together.  The fifth day of October had come.  Before twenty-four hours the capital of  eastern Siberia ought to be iu the hands  of the emir and the grand duke ia the  power of Ivan Ogareff. During all that  Clay an unusual movement was taking  place in the camp of the Angara. From  the windows of the palace and from the  houses of the right bank one could see  distinctly that important preparations  were being made on the opposite  heights.    '      ���������    ' ,  Numerous Tartar detachments were  seen moving toward the camp and thus  hourly re-enforcing the troops of the  emir. This was the preparation for  the diversion which had been agreed  upon, and it was being made in the  most ostentatious manner. Moreover,  Ivau Ogareff did not conceal from the  grand duke that some attack_wasjo_be  feared on that side. He knewv he said,"  that an assault would be made at the  two extremities of the town along the  river, and he counseled the grand duke  to re-e'nfqrce those two points more directly menaced.  The preparations that had been noticed, coming to the support of Ivan  Ogareff's recommendations, it was necessary to take some account of them.  Thus after a council of war which was  held ot tho palace orders were given to  concentrate the defense on the right  bank of the Angara and at the two extremities of the town, where the fortified terraces rested on the river,  This was precisely what Ivan Ogareff wished. lie evidently did net reckon that the Bolchaia gate would re-  main without defenders, bnt they would  be. there ouly lu a small number. Besides, Ivan Ogareff was about to give  to the dlyerslou such Importance that  the grand duke would be obliged to oppose It with all his disposable forces.  And Indeed an Incident of an exceptionable gravity, devised by Ivnn Ogareff, was ���������to powerfully aid In the accomplishment of his projects. For even  If Irkutsk' had not been attacked ot  points distant from the Bolchaia gate  and along the right bank of tlio river  that Incident would have sulllced to  draw the chief body of tho defenders  to tlie placo whoro Ivan Ogareff wished precisely to bring thom, It would  cause at tho same time a most terrible  catastrophe,  All the ehanees were then that tho  gate, being free nt the hour fixed, would  iio given up to the ilunisands of Tartars who were waiting under the thick  cover of the forest on the east, During  that day the garrison and population of  Irkutsk were constantly on tho alert.  All the moni-uirus which woro required  to repel an attack on points never before threatened were taken.  The grain] duke and General Vorac-  zoff visited the various posts which had  been strengthened by their orders, The  picked corps of Wasslll Feodor occupied the north of the towu. but with  tho Injunction to march at ouoe to  Whore tho danger should bo most press-  lug. The right bank of the Angnra was  protected by the only artillery a. their  disposal.  With those measures taken In time,  f'li'iks to tho fMiimrnini' recommendations of Ivnn Ogareff. tliere was every  reason to hope that the prepared attack  would not succeed, lu that case the  Tartars, diwoUi..ged for the t,l;ne, without doubt would defer for a few days  '���������ny now nttaek iv.*i'.!nst the town, P.������-  Khit's. tho troops expected by the grand  duke might arrive auy hour. The safe'-  iy or the loss cf lrkimd; hung c* a  thread.  On that day the run. which had risen  at" twenty minutes past ti, had set at  *i:.u. Twilight would stiii huve tu strug-  :!.' with nhrlit for two hours, Tii.-n  -y.t.ee would bt- filled with thlrk Cnv'.i-  u'ess. for heavy clouds hung still in the  a.������r, ami the moou would not appear.  This profound obscurity would favor  more completely the plans of Ivan Ogareff.  Already, for some days, au extremely  kivn frost had c-onie as a prelude to  the rigors of the * Siberian winter, and  on that night the cold was still more  piercing. The soldiers posted on the  right bank of the Angara, being forced  to hide thoir preseuce, had not kindled  any .tires. They therefore suffered  dreadfully from great lowering of the  temperature.- At some feet below them  the ice blocks floated past, following  \\he��������� cwent of the river.'.  During all that day they had seen  item in close ranks floating .-rapidly  between the two banks. That circumstance, observed by the grand duke and  his officers, had been considered as fortunate. It was evident that If the bed  of the silver became obstructed thu passage ef-.it would become altogether Impracticable.  The Tartars would not be able Xt*  manage either rafts or boats. As fo  attempting to cross the river oyer thr  blocks of ice when the cold should ha xe  joined them, that was not possible. The  field, newly cemented, would uot hare  been strong enough for the passage  over it of an attacking column.  But Ivan Ogareff did not regret that  circumstance, although it appeared favorable to the defenders of Irkutsk, for  the traitor knew well that the Tartars  were not seeking to cross the Angara  and that at least on that sidt the attempt would only be a feint. Nevertheless toward 10 o'clock at night the  state of the river visibly changed, to  the extreme surprise of the besieged  and now to their disadvantage. The  passage, up to that tinie impracticable,  suddenly became possible. The bed of  the Angara soon became free. The  floating ice,;which for some days had  come down the-js^er In great, quantities, dlsappearej^nd, very little could  be seon between $fe two banks.  The Russian officers, wko had noticed this change in the state et the  river, made It known to the grand  duke. Besides, it was explained In this  way that at some narrow portion of the  Angara the floating toe had accumulated and found a barrier. We know  that such was the case. The passage  of the Angara was therefore opeu to  the besiegers; hence the necessity for  the Russians to watch with greater attention than ever.  In the camp of the Angara there was  plenty of agitation, as was proved by  jihi^ligMsjt^:iat^Uy_fliitLugjibpjvtj_^Lt_  a verst up above, as also down Low  the point where the fortification slopes  dowu to the river, there was a dull  murmur, which proved that the Tartars were on foot, waiting for some  signal. Again an hour passed by.  Nothing new.  Two o'clock,in the morning was about  to strike from the clock tower of the  cathedral of Irkutsk and uo movement  had taken place to disclose the hostile  Intentions of the besiegers. The grand  ,duke and his'officers began to ask  themselves If they had not been led  Into error, If It had really entered Into  the plan of the Tartars, to attempt to  surprise the town, "     :     ,  Tho preceding nights had not by any  means been so calm. Firing had been  kept up from the advanced posts, and  shells had hissed through the air, nnd  this time there was nothing of the kiud.  The grand duke, Oeneral Vornnzoff,  their alds-de-cauip. waited therefore,  ready to give their orders according to  the olrcumstnneos.  It has been stated thnt Ivan Ogareff  occupied n room in the palace. It was  n pretty large room, situated on the  ground floor, and lis windows ppencd  out upon a side terrace. Ouo need ouly  step a few paces ou this terrace to  overlook the course of the Angara. A  profound darkness reigned lu that  room, Ivan Ogareff, standing ticnr a  window, wns waiting for the hour of  action to arrive. Evidently the signal  could ouly come from lilm. Once this  s.giail was given, when t.iu.st of tlio defenders of Irkutsk chouid have been  called to the points openly attacked.  Ills plan was to.leave the palace and  to go and accomplish Ills work. Me  waited thou lu ihe dark, like a tiger  ready to spring upon Its prey.  Meanwhile, sonic ml nut oh before 12  o'clock, tho grntul duke asked thnt Michael Strogoff���������It wus the duly mime  he couljl give to Ivau Qgnreff-shouul  be brought to lilm. ^ An nid-de-enmp  came to his room, the door of which  was closed, "lie willed lum. Ivan Ogareff. motionless near the window and  Invisible iu tlie darkness, took good  care not to answer. The grand duke  was then informed that the courier of  llie cv/lIv was uot at that moment lu tl.e  palace.  Two o'clock struck. It was the moment tlmt action had beeu agreed on  with the InruiiK, who were ready lor  the assault. Ivnn Ogmvff opened the  window of his room ami placed himself  nt the north angle of the side terrace.  I5"lo\v him In the idinde (lowed the waters of thu Angara, which roared as  they broko against the plies of the but-  trews,  Ivan Ogareff drew n IJJut from his  pocket and lit wltli It a piece of cotton  wool impregnated with priming powder, which ho threw uuu the river. II  was* by tlio order of Ivnn Ogareff that  torrents of iiineial oil had been <jki  np tho ������i:rfnra������ of Hie Angara.   Uurlnga  of naphtha had been discovered above  Irkutsk on'the right bank, between the  village of Poshkavsk and the town.  Ivan Ogareff had resolved to employ  this terrible means for setting fire to  Irkutsk. He therefore made use of>the  immense reservoir which contained the  combustible liquid. He had only to  make a few canals to draw in streams  into^the river. These he had made that,  very night, some hours before. The  cotton wool had been cast on the waters of'the Angara." In an tustaut. as if  the current:had been made of alcohol,  all the river became a mass of flames,  up and down1 the stream, with the rapidity of .electricity.. ��������� Volumes of blue  flames covered the whole surface of the  river and shot far up into the sky.  The few blocks of ice that came floating down the river, being seized by the  burning liquid, melted like wax ou the  surface of a furnace, and the water,  sent off as vapor, rose hissing to the  clouds.0 At that very moment the firing began at the north and at the south  of the town. Tlie batteries of the camp  of the Angara threw an uninterrupted  volley of shot and shell. Many thousand Tartars rushed to the assault of  the ramparts. The houses along the  high banks, constructed of wood, took  fire in every direction. An Immense  light dissipated the shades of night  I "At last!" said Ivan Ugareff. And he  had good reasou to applaud. The diversion which he had planned was terrible. The defenders buw tbeioA&lve*  placed between the attack of the Tartars and the disasters of au luiinensfl  couflnrratlou. The bells sounded, and  every nbtebodted man of the population  hastened to the points attacked and to  the houses which were being devoured  by the flr������, which was threatening to  communicate itself to the whole city.  The Bolchaia gate was almost free. It  was with difficulty that any defenders  had been left tliere.  Ivan Ogareff re-entered his room,,  then brilliantly lit up by the flames  from the Angara that overtopped the  balustrades of the ramparts. Then he  prepared to leave It. But scarcely had  he opened the door wben a woman  rushed into the room, with . her garments dripping wet, her hair in disorder.  "Sangarre!" cried Ivan Ogareff in the  first moment of surprise and uot imagining that It could be any other woman  than the gypsy.  It was uot Sangarre; it was Nadia.  At the moment when, seeking refuge  on the block of lee, the youug girl had  uttered'that"'cry'wireir"she"-saw'tlie-fire-  spread over the current of tho Angara,  Michael Strogoff had seized hor in his  arms, and he had dived with her to  seek even In the depths of the river a  shelter from the flames. After having  swum under the waters Michael Strogoff had fortunately put his foot on  ground at the quay, aud he had Nadia  still safe with him.  Michael Strogoff was touching ot last  his goal. He was at Irkutsk. "To the  palace of the governor!" said he to Nadia. In less than ten minutes afterward both arrived at the eutrance to  that palace, tho massive stone walls of  which were being licked by the long  flames from tno Angnra, without, however, their being able to set the structure on fire. Beyond, the houses on the  bank were all In Humes.  Michael Strogoff and Nadin entered  without   difliculty   Into   that   palace,  whlcli was open for nil. In the midst  of the general confusion no ono noticed  thom, although tbelr clothes were drip-  p.ng wet.  A crowd of ofiicers came for  orders, and soldiers running to execute  them blocked up tho graud salon on  tho ground floor.  Thore Michael Strogoff and tho young  girl, in the midst of so great a crowd,  found themselves separated from each  other. Nadin, distracted, ran along tho  lower rooms, willed her cainpatilon und  asked to be led before tho grond duko.  A door leading into a room that, was  Inundated wltli light opened Itself "before her. She entered, and she found  herself unoxprt'teilly luce to face will)  him whom she hnd seou at Ichim,  whom sho luul neon at Tomsk, iu the  presence of tlmt inau whoso cursed  lmnd an Instant later would have delivered up tho city,  "Ivan Ogareff!" cried sho.  On hearing his nnmo pronounced tlio  miserable wretch trombled. Ills truo  nnmo being once known, nil his plana  would be ruined. IIo had only ouo  thing to do���������to kill tlio being, whoever  It might be, who hnd Just prououueed  It, Ivnn Ogaruff threw himself ou Nadia, but lhe youug girl, with a knife lu  her hand. pl������ewl her Uncle to tho wall,  resolved to defend herself.  "Ivan Ogareff!" cried again Nadin.  knowlug woll that detested uamo would  bring succor to her.  "Ah, .vou shall bo ollont!" said tho  traitor,  "Ivan Ogurolll" cried a third time Uiu  Intrepid young girl In a voice whoso  hate had Increased tenfold the force.  Drunk with fury. Ivau Oaaroff drew  n dnirsor from his belt, rushed upon  Nndla and forced lier back Into a corner of tho room. It wns all ovor with  Iter whon tho wretch, suddenly knock-  ed down by n tremendous blow, rolled  to the ground,  "Michael!" cried Nadin,  lt was Michael Strogoff. Mlclmel  Strogoff hnd heard tho appeal of Nadia.  Guided by her voice, be imd arrived nt  tho room of Ivnn Ogareff, ana bo had  entered by the door which had beeo  left open.  "Fear nothing. Nadia," he said as ho  placed himself between her and Ivan  Ogareff.  "Ah," screamed the young girl, "take  care, "brother! The traitor is armed!  He can see well!"  Ivan Ogareff had risen, and, believing that he had the advantage over a  blind man. he threw himself upon Michael Strogoff. But with one hand Michael seized the arm of him who could  see well and with the other, turning  aside his weapon, he threw him a second time to the ground.  Ivan Ogareff. pale with fury and  ehame, remembered that he was carrying a sword. lie drew It from the  scabbard and returned to the combat.  He bad also recoguized Michael Strogoff. A blind man! He had only, i������  short, to deal with a blind man.  Nadia, terrified at the danger which'  threatened her companion in such an>  unequal struggle, rau to the door,1 calling help.  "Shut that door, ^,adia.,, said Michael  Strogoff. "Do hot call any one, and let  me do It. The courier of the czar has  nothing to fear today from this wretch.  Let him ..come at me if he dare. I am  waiting for him."  Meanwhile Ivan Ogareff. gathering  himself together, as It were, like a tiger did uot utter a word. The noise  of his step, his very breathing, he  would have wished to keep back from'  the ear of the blind man. He wished  to strike him before even he had any  warning of his approach, to strike him  with a certain blow. The traitor did  not dream of fighting, but of assassinating him whose name he bad stolen.  Nadia. frightened, yet at the same  time confident, contemplated with a-  sort of admiration that terrible scene.  It seemed that the old coolness had  come back to bim.  Michael Strogoff had as his only  weapon his Siberian knife, and he could  not see bis adversary, who was even  armed with a sword. But by what,  favor from heaven was he able to overpower him?  Ivan Ogareff glanced at his adversary  with a visible anxiety." That superhuman calmness worked upon him. Ia  vain, appealing to his reason, he kept  saying that In the Inequality of such A  combat all the advantage was in his  favor. That immovableness of the  bliud man completely froze him. He  had sought with his eyos the place  -where-he^niust-strlke-hls-vlctlmj���������He-  had found it., Who, then, was preventing him from giving the finishing blow?  At length be made a blow and thrust  his sword full at tho breast of Michael  Strogoff.  An Imperceptible movement of the  knlfo of the blind man turned the blow.  Michael Strogoff had not been touched  nnd coolly seemed to wait another attack without, however, challenging It.  A cold sweat ran from the face of  Ivan Ogareff. IIo recoiled a pace, then  made another thrust. BuMhe second  blow, like the flrst, fell harmless. A  simple parrying with the large knife  had sulllced to turn aside tlie sword of  tbo traitor. The latter, mad with rago  and terror before that living statue,  fixed his terrified look on the largo'  open eyes of the blind man. Those  eyes that seemed to read the very, bottom of his heart nnd which could uot  see���������thoso oyes seemed to have for him  an awful fascination.  Suddenly Ivan Ogareff gave a cry.  Au unexpected' light had entered his  brnln.  "He enn seo!" cried ho. "Ho can  soo!"  And, like a deer trying to re-enter Hs  onvo, step by step, terrified, ho'retreated to tho lower end of the room. Then  the statue, took life, The blind man  walked straight to Ivan Ogareff, and,  placing himself In front of hlra, said!  "Yes, I see���������I seo Um blow of the knout  with which I have marked you, traitor  nnd coward! 1 iw'tho place where I  nm going to s:rll:e you. Defend your  life! It Is a duel whicli I condescend  to offer you, My knlfo will suUlco wo  ngnliist your sword!"  "IIo sees!" said .Nndla. "God of mcr������  ey, la It possible?"  Ivnn Ogareff felt hlmsolf to bo lost,  Rut suddenly, taklug courage, sword  In front, ho rushed upon his Impassible  adversary, The two blades erossod,  but nt tho flrst plash of tho knlfo Of  Mloh/iel Strogoff, grasped firmly In the  baud of the Siberian hunter, tlto sword  flew In pieces, and the wretch, pierced'  to .tlie'heart, fell dead to thogrouud,  At that moment the door of the room,  pushed from the outfiide, opened. Tho  grand duke, accompanied by some officers, showed himself on tho threshold,  The grand duke advanced, He recognized on the around tho dend body of  lilm whom ho thought to bo tho courier  of the czar, nml then lu a threatening  volco ho asked:  "Who 1ms slulu this mnu7"  Ml," replied Michael Strogoff.  flno of the otllpi'i's placed a revolver  to his hond, ready to tiro.  "Your name'/" nsked tho grand duko  beforo giving tho ordor to uhoot him  dead.  "Your highness," answered Mlcbnol  Strogoff, "oulc mo rather tho namo of  thc man stretched at your feet." ,.

Hc grew up in  and with the town of which   he   is a  citizen.   He was a lad of six years in  1881,     when    his    father,    WilliaiiY  KlSgs, decided  to move from   Ottawa,  with his four children,    to   tho  West.

An interesting story Is toiJ by the  commissioners who have beon -������ngaged  for the last eighteen mouths in fixing  the Anglo-German frontiers in west  Africa between the town of Tola aud  Lake Tchad.  The region traversed is .little known  owing to tbe hostility of tho tribes.  The Fulani villages were found quite  friendly, but beyond Lau, n large town  on the Bornu. there lies n mountainous  region inhabited by pagans who In  many cases nre cannibals.  They were found to bo a most Industrious people, who cultivated their  fields with a good deal of method. In  most cases, says Keuter, they were  practically naked, but were always  armed. Even when at work in the  fields plowing they carried a full kit of  spears, sh.'.lds and poisoned arrows.  The arrows are much dreaded, for  thoy are tipped with a deadly poison  extracted from vegetables and from  dead bodies. This Ts carried In small  bottles, and when fresh it proves fatal  in a few minutes.  These people nre adepts at game  stalking and disguise themselves as  birds nnd animals In order to approach  their prey.  They are smaller than the Fulani,  being often quite dwarfish, and they  live in flimsy grass huts perched In  inaccessible nooks among tit" mountains.  At Kuka the sheik of British Bornu rode out to greet Colonel Jackson  at the head of 300 horsemen and a  large number of men on foot. He was  accompanied by a band and dancing  girls.  His people carried enqrmous spears,  and some wore old armor, while the  horses were caparisoned with housings  llko those of the crusaders.  The surrey has proved that existing  maps are to a large extent inaccurate  and has placed the boundary farther  to the oast, thus enlarging the British  sphere.���������London Express.

A meeting was recently held nt the  BoW6^)F lIPraTinF'l^^^  L'Enfant, tho African explorer, who.  has found a new road lnto'the interior  of that country which, it is claimed, ���������  will altogether supersede tho present  Kongo route. The aim of his mission  was to find a mouns of communication,  between tho Benone and the Logoue  und to see lf lt wns possible for a,  barge leaving tho mouth of the Niger  to reach Lake Tchad by following a  water route���������thnt is, the Niger, Be-  none, Mayo-Kohl, Tonborl, Logono nnd  Chnrl. Cuptaln L'Enfant carried along  with him a steel barge, taken over in  sections,-and successfully accomplished  the Journey. Ho says tho route can,  easily bo mado navigable, shortening  tho tlmo of the Kongo passage to sixty-five days and reducing tbo cost of  carrying merchandise from $400 to  9100 per ton. The link of communlcar  tion between tho Niger nnd Luke  Tchad being thus discovered, a solution has been 'afforded of one of tho  greatest African problems.  To Weed Out Baronets,  A permanent tribunal for tho Investigation of nil now claims to baronetcies  and nil existing doubtful ones bus  boen suggested.

Could Tiot Eat op Work-Powders and Quick Cures  of no Avail-Lasting Cure Obtained From  DR.   CHASE'S   NERVE   FOOD.  This case of Mr. Barber well illustrates the way in which Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food euros headaches.  He tried the so-called "quick cures"  first, but without obtaining benefit.  It is a well known fact that such  remedies whon they do bring temporary relief do so with a tremendous  waste of nerve force and consequent  Injury to the system.  Dr. Chase's Nervo Food cures by  enriching tho blood, vitalizing the  nerves and building up the system.  Headaches, as well as all other symptoms of an exhausted system, disappear before its influence. Its cures  lasting because' it removes the causo  of the trouble.  Mr. 0. Barber, Srmcoe, Ont., writes:  "Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is a splendid medicine. I was troubled for' a  long timo with headaches, which  would come on about once a week  with such violence that 1 could not  ea.t or do my work. I tried headache powders and quick cures, which  did no good,  "About eight months ago I took  bsx boxes of Dr. Chaso's Nerve Food,  and I have not been troubled with  headache since. It made a thorough  and lasting cure."  Mrs. James Clancy, 714 Water  street, Peterboro', Ont., states:���������'"I  havo usod four boxes of Dr. Chase's  Nervo Food, and found them an excellent medicine. I was troubled  more or less for ninteen years with  severe headaches, which made me  useless as far as accomplishing my  work was concerned.  "The Nerve Food seemed to build  me up generally, and so made a  thorough euro of my old troublo. I  would not think of being without Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food in the house,  and would strongly recommend anyone suffering as I did to give it a  trial. It succeeded in my case after'  a great many remedies had failed."

EXPLANATION,  tilir. explanation of the value of. cov- J  er crops to the orchardist,   of which'  thu following is a synopsis: ���������  "Among the many advantages to  be derived from the system of orchard culture which includes the growth  of cover crops, we may cite as tho  two most important; tbe control of  the soil moisture, and the improvement of tho soil.  Cor.sonying Soil Moisture.���������Speaking generally,'it is desirable that the  soil moisture should be conserved for  thn orchard trees during the earlier  months of tho season. Up to, say,  July 1st, the tree, is making now  growth and is transpiring through  its loaves large quantities of water.  Furthac, .the swelling fruit is xnukiug  its doBtlmto for water. For every  pound of dry matter of leaf or wood  or fruit, the tree uses at least 300  pounds of water. Hence, in districts  where drought? may prevail in spring  or ihe rafnfali be scanty, thc importance of surface cultivation is marked. By this means earth mulch is  produced, and thus evaporation  checked or prevented. The cover t  crop system allows of surface culti-.  yatioil iii t-hv spring and early sum-'^  iner months."* . t'  Some iDxpcrimcnts. ��������� Experiments [  have been made to ascertain tho effects of cover cropu and cultivation  on soil moisture on the Central Experimental Farm for several    years.  Thus, May 6th, 1901, wc found that  thero was 130 tons more water per  acre,, to a depth of 14 inches, in cul- ,  tivated soil    than in, the    adjoiniug |  plot carrying a vigorous    growth of,  clover.   This means that the    latter j  soil  contained one-haif the water in ,  thc cultivated soil.   But grass, sod is  more exhaustive than clover sod.   In  1902,  from May to  July,  trials ev-j  ery two weeks showed' that the soil j  in sod contained from 50 to 100 per  cent,  less water than .adjoining soil  in cultivation���������the difference being at  times over 200 tons per acre.    The  drought  in  the early  part  of   1903  emphasized  these facts and    showed  most markedly the value of cultivation.  In the autumn, on the other hand,  it is desirable that thc water supply  Bhould be diminished, so, that vegetative growth should be checked and  the wood given an opportunity to  ripen'before thc winter sets in. This  is readily brought about by sowing  - the-cover���������crop-in- June���������or���������the-early-  part of July.  Legumes for Improvement of Soils.  ���������The improvement of    soils by    the  growth of clover or some other   legume is effected by the addition   of  humus.and nitrogen. Experiments go  to show that by this means the soil j  cun bo enriched to the extent of 100  pounds or more of nitrogen per acre}  ���������this    nitrogen    being appropriated j  from    the atmosphere by tho    plant!  through the ugosscy of certain    bacteria that reside In the clover roots.  It seems more than probable that a!  .good crop of clover turned under will j  enrich the soil to- an extoot equal to ���������  nn application of 10 tons of    ordinary barnyard manure.   Not only Is ,  that valuable and    necessary    plant j  food, nitrogen, furnished   cheaply by '  thin meaiiFi.  but humus-forming nm- (  terial is added    in large ounntlties. <  nnd tills by Its .partial decay Is par-J  -.tlculniiy    important in ameliorating (  the physical  condition of the .soil.'  And, lastly, thV-mineral matter stored up    in tho cover crop is    finally  set free In forms readily nsnlmllablo  by tho roots'of the orchard trees.  ���������__ ,    /  A Siilj.itttiitlul Drlvoivnjr,'.

"I've seen something of that kind in  tbe papers," he said, "but I won't attempt to offer you anything just as  good.   Where is the rheumatism?"  "In de handt und in de arm," the boy  replied.  "Well, see here," said the proprietor,  with a sudden smile, "I haven't got  the cure on my shelves, but I keep lt  ln my back yard. You go out through  this door and walk around my flower  beds. When you see four or live bees  resting on a flower, just try to pick  them up."  .The boy .nodded and wenj put.   He.  was gone at least ten minutes.     ���������     |  When he came back hlB face was red,  and his nose, where an angry bee had  alighted, was beginning to swell. He  held out his hand.  "I picked me some of dose bees oop,"  he placidly remarked.  "Did you?" said tho amused proprietor. "And does your hand feel auy  better?"  The boy looked up.  . "It aind't for me," he placidly replied; "it's for my bruder."���������Cleveland  Plain Dealer.  BLOTTING PAPER.  It Was KaoTrn and Used as' Far Back  am the Year 1G75.  There is a pretty prevalent belief that  blotting paper is a modern invention;  that a hundred yeara ago it was unknown, white sand being used in its  stead.  Blotting paper, as a matter of fact,  was a recognized convenience of the  writing desk as far back as 1C75. In  that year there was issued a book cfilled  "Town9end's Preparative' to Pleading,"  a copy of which is in the possession of  a Chicago antiquary, and this volume  contains on page 8 the following paragraph:  "Let the dusting or sanding in books  be avoided, rather using fine brown paper to prevent blotting if time of the  Ink's drying caunot bo allowed, for  sand takes away tho good color of the  Ink, and, getting into the backs of  books, makes them break their blnd-  .ing."  Tbe sand that was used for blotting  ln tho past was, the Chicago antiquary  says, very clean and white and fine,  and it was called silver sand. It -was  kept in a cruet with a perforated lid,  like a salt cruet, nnd thence it was  sifted over tho wet writing. An odd  thing about .it was that the ink never  seemed to stain it. It could be used  over and over and It remained to the  end as white as snow.     ,...+*&)������������������������  INVESTING MCNEY.  I'M.  Irregularity In the Punishment.

The custom, of carrying ftags or standards in battle dates back at least to  1490 B. C. We find in Numbers ii, 2,  that "every man of the children of  Israel shall pitch by his own standard  with the ensign of his father's house."  Each standard of the twelve tribes thus  distinguished was supposed to have  been of a color to correspond with the  Btone in Aaron's breastplate which  bore the name of that tribe. Under the  generic name banner are included many  species, such as standard, ensign, pennon, flag, eto. These have been used  from earliest times and ln all countries  to direct movements of troops.  ) The earliest Roman standard was  a bundle of straw fixed to the top of  a spear. This' was succeeded by figures of animals, such, as the horse and  the boar, which soon gave place to the  eagle, the chief Eoman ensign, afterward assumed by the German and  French emperors.

In "Romeo and Juliet" the servants  of Capulet and Montague begin a quarrel by one biting.his thumb at the others. Commentators have regarded this-  act as an insult, quoting the following  passage from Decker"s "Dead Term:"'  "What swearing is there, what shouldering, what jostling, what jeering,  what biting of thumbs to beget quarrels!"  Sir Walter Scott, however, in a note  to the "Lay of the Last Minstrel," says,  "To bite tho thumb or the glove seenia  not to havo been considered .upon the  border as a gesture of contempt,  though so U3ed by Shakespeare, but aa  a pledge of mortal revenge." It was  thus accounted to be a solemn assurance that at the proper time the sword  should settle the dispute or purge tbo  offense.  Something of the' sort may have pre-..  vailed among the Romans, for it is  thought that the Latin  polliceri, to  promiLJ, is derived from pollex, the  _thumb.         ���������    .    ��������� ^2ui_  PRISONS OF SILENCE.

Should Ma\or Manson of Nanaimo accept the Conservative nomination for a seat in the Federal  House It behooves the supporters  and friends of the Conservative  party to be ready for the day of  battle by having their organizations  perfected. The name of Mr Leighton has also been mentioned in connection with the filling of the office  but it is thought he will retire in  favor of Mayor Manson. The fact  *hat Mr Manson is a thorough go  ing Conservative and a representative laboring man places hi in in  the position of being the strongest  candidate for the position. He is  in close touch with the lab .ring  classes, the masses, and the people  generally, He is level headed,  shrewd, far seeing and a thoroughly o^ervant m;m and has always  been a loyal, steadfast and zealous  man for the right* of Nanaimo.  Mr Manson is not an oflice seeker  nor will'he sacrifice his principles  , for personal gain or gratification.  AVe feel assured that no matier who  his opponent may be���������and there is  one��������� he will vanquish him.

It is certainly going tb be a very expensive matter  for the Laurier government to carry Canada. Every directly or indirectly purchaseable vote mint be  cast for the Li eral party because  that party has lost the support of  that variable element which swings  first for one party and then for the  other. Under such circumstances  the government's main reliance is  upon a campaign fund of preternatural dimensions. When a government once begins to go down  hill in popular estimation it seldom  or never recovers ground.
