The C,P,R. and  the Island,  The news that negotiation* were  on foot between Mr Dunsmuir and  the C.P.R. officials for, the purohase  of the B. & N  Railway, hat again  raised hopes in the hearts of us  isolated people, of ibe early ezten  sion of the line north.    That this  extension will be of immense benefit to all, tbere is no question.   The  resources of the Island, now lying  partly dormant, reedy to spring into life at the advent of a railway,  have been so often written on, explained, and put before the puhlic  that it is unnecessary to enlarge on  the subject here.     So far as Mr?  Dunsmuir was concerned, he had  little incentive to extend tbe road.  He has always declared it would be  a losing proposition, which, is probably correct, and no one can well  blame him for refusing to risk capital where there was eo poor a prospect of any profitable return. Witn  the C.P.R. however, conditione are  widely different.    In order to com-  pie.e their vast   trans-continental  system, it becomes to them an absolute necessity to acquire and control  Island Railway rights, unless they  are prepared for and acquiescent to  any   other   corporation   acquiring  those rights, which would'surely be  acquiied in the near future. ? Having gained control, it would seem  that the Island is destined to be-  "oorniFp^rrfTneuiyBleb^^dTmore  direct: communication will be  es?  - tabtiehed between, rtffcud^the Mainland.     It is argued by a ffew that  the Company   will  acquire  these  rights simply to tie them tap agaimt  rival concerns, but against thir-, is  the fact that immense sums are be  ing expended ou work of a mos  substantial character ia Victoria,  and it seems unquestionable that  the deal is being made in connection with, and, as it were, a part ot  those   works.       Curtain   railway  charters now exist giving rights to  ciosb the Island, and a further weal  port on the Pacific is a possibility  of the near future.

Took His Mon In  In  Ilia CabJu.
An Australian millionaire, Mr. James
Tyson, loft behind lilm whon he died
a fortune of fS.000.000.   One of the
many stories concerning him tells how
on one occasion lie was a passenger
ou a Queensland coasting steamer.  As
usual, when traveling he declined to
undress at night and lay in his bunk
fully clothed, boots and all.   lie had
taken   thither   Avith   hhu,   moreover,
three loaves of bread upon which to
subsist for forty-eight hours in order j
to save the expense of meals. The stewards complained to the purser of the
crumbs which the millionaire's methods caused in the cabin.   But nothing
would induce Tyson to eat his loaves
elsewhere than in his bunk. Great was
his rage when at tho end of the voyage
he was charged not only full rate, but
one-fourth extra for having "taken hi3
meals In his cabin."

Armoar'a Revenge.

Vent into business on his own account
on one occasion and built up a powerful opposition house. The man had j fast
remarkable ability, but his career
shows that he had not Armour's conception of things nor his loftiness of
character. And it shows, too, that despite his long and intimate association
with his old employer the secedcr had
not thoroughly appreciated the quiet
power of the originator. X, for Ave
will call him so, rose to prosperous
heights and then was seized with the
desire to be thought a greater man
than his old chief, against whom he
began operations in the chosen way
of corners and similar financial exercises knoAvn to the street. He said one
day, "I used to work for Phil Armour,
but before long Phil Armour will be
working for me." He thought he had
the old man squeezed, as the word
goes, but. Armour proceeded at 9
o'clock one morning to .convince the
complacent gentleman that he was sadly mistaken: By noon there was a
rushing fall in prices, and the once
jubilant merchant was a bankrupt.
With the news he also received from
Mr. Armour the offer of an instant
and friendly loan of $500,000 in cash.
Leading Business Man of Welland
Gives His Experience with the
Great Canadian Kidney Cure.
Welland, Ont., Dec. 5.���(Spesial).���
There is no better known or more
highly respected man in Welland
than Mr. J. J. Yokom. Bom and
brought up in the neighboring township of Crowiaiid, by his own industry
and sterling honesty he has grown to
be one of Welland's leading merchants. Consequently when Mr. Yokom comes out with a'statement that
he was cured of a serious Illness by
Dodd's Kidney Pills, everybody
knows it must be so.
"For a year or more I had Kidney
Trouble in all its worst symptoms,"
says Mr. Yokom. "My head was bad, I
had uo appetite and I lost weight
At times I was entirely incapacitated. I doctored with a physician of vast experienco but got no
good results.
"I became despondent of ever being
well again, when by good .luck I
chanced to try Dodd's Kidney Pills
and from the first day they seemed
to suit my case. Five boxes cured
me completely."

("The Book of the Priests"). It is supposed to have been written by the Jewish priests, but probably dates from
tho eighteenth century. Here is one of
the curious recipes contained In this
book: Mix a quantity of iron filings

reason for this does not appear until

has too much shade, tho law will uot
allow him to havo ono or moro of the

The   proprietor   and editor   or the
Hartney Star is a newspaper man >��� of
two    decades   of   western experience.
Ho was but   a   lad vWhen he started
the'-'.Birtie   Observer���the   parent   of
the present Eyewilness.   This was in
1884. when   the   northwestern   town
confidently anticipated that it would
be on tho main line of the.C. P. It.,
ancl be a centre second in importance
to but few in thc province. For years
Mr. Murdoch    stayed    at the   pretty
little town on the banks of the Bird
Tail.    But the Observer  did  not observe much progress made by the ambitious and once hopeful little burg.
The population of the town decroased
ancc as a trade centre grew less instead  of  greater.    All  that a newspaper  could  do  to  stem  the  falling
fortunes  of    the    placo the Observer
did.   Issue after issue it pointed out
the wealth   of    the rich agricultural
section of which *-Bir tic is, the centre,
and   enlarged    on    the   success that
awaited those who properly tilled its
fertile soil.   But it was of but, small
avail.   The number of settlers steadily decreased, as it did in many other
parts of the West at the time.   This
is ...itv no sense remarkable   when   the
conditions are known,   The   original
settlers of the district came in with
little, or no means,   As so in,.as thoy
had performed their homestead duties
and secured their patents a "majority
of them mortgaged their farms,   and
abandoned  them    to    tho   mortgage
companies.     With   the    money   thus
raised they    moved to a newer   district, took up a second    homestead,
ns they wero then enabled to do under the law, and with much -larger
capital  wero nblo to make   a   fresh
start on a larger nnd moro successful  scale,   While the individual    settlor so doing was benefited by this,
it is obvious' that the district' niiist
suffer thereby, and in fact tho country    around   Birtle   was,   for somo
years dotted with  Idle farms owned
by morlgivfic companies,
Tho Observer, as conducted by Mr,
Murdoch, was in many respects a
model local paper. Nona of the country papers of thoso early, days wore
mechanically faultless, Tho conditions undor which they wero produced prevented thnt, But. few, if
any, could compare In point of typographical neatness with tho ono of
which Mr, Murdoch was editor, Conscientiousness nnd thoroughness aro
the keynotes of Mr, Murdoch's character, No detail Is too trivial for
his attention, If that detail Is necessary for the completion of what he
has In hand, Typographical excellence Is gained only by careful attention to numerous 1 rifles, and that
this nMention was given by Mr. Murdoch iho Mcs of the Observer boar
witness, ���
In duo course   Mr, Murdoch determined to clxiiifju bis locution, HoMlis-
sed of   the   Observer    plant,   and
poise. His temperament is calm and
judicial. Partizanship or extremeness' of belief are naturally foreign to
his disposition. He is a practically
believer and example of the old Orir
ental proverb, which says that there
is no stick so short or so crooked
I but that it has two ends. Mr, M'ur-
! doeh always wants to see ml sides
of a question before coming to conclusions. Naturally, therefore, he
seldom makes up his mind as to poli-
cios'lhurriedly.'- As is equally natural,
too/ his mind once made up, he seldom has occasion to change his opinion. It is this finality and fairness
in his arguments and reasonings that
make his published opinions so
weighty. Few editorial expressions
I carry so far as those of the Hartney
jSttir, and the reason is to be found
jin the thoughtful personality whose
rideas they reflect.
While all Mr1. Murdoch's newspapers
haye been.,remarkable for this sanity
and fairmindedness,  there is another
characteristic they have all shared in,
common   to   which   reference   ought
here to   be    made���their keen observance of the world of nature.     With
Mr. Murdoch natural history amounts
almost-to a passion���not :a,   bird   or
a beast, or a flower of the prairie to
which he is not    a   friend,    and    of
whose habits of life he is not.a storehouse of knowledge.   His little articles on natural    history    are   widely
ji'ead.and much quoted.   Tn these days
of the hurly burly of federal, provincial .or,, municipal politics, and of the
goingteahd comings of people, the reporting of-' whose .-movements"-constitutes too often the bulk of   the news
of a local papor, .it is a refreshment
to pick up the Star, and read there-
of the wild goose,  the habits of the
muskrat, : -the,!-  bloonyng'of the anemone, or a description of.some rare
and    beautiful   mirage.   Few  among
the busy workers in the West tako the
necessary   time  to  familiarize  themselves with nature.   The fact that one.
of tho western editors gives frequently the results of his own communion
with tho various forms of naturo is,
therefore,   all   tho  more appreciated.
Many of his subscribers would doubtless notice the omission of. son-i'e item
of local news, but among -'those who
from week to week look for tho .'Hartney-'Star as one of the few,exchanges
for !whoso    arrival    they look   With
oagorness,   tho    littlo    naturo t^lks
that from tlmo to timo apponr   aro
always tho flrst   things   sought   for.
Whatovor    modifications    may   from
tiino i to ,timovbe mado in tlio   Star,
thoy hope this will remain a' pCrhid-
nont fonturo.

There really  was no excuse for her to linger at that  particular window, for Berg & Co., as  everybody knows, are haberdashers,  and Miss Van Orden was fatherless,  brotherless and unmarried.  "Talk about women's clothes," ran  her thoughts ns she reluctantly prepared to move onward. "Why, there  Isn't a window In town that compares  with this for" charm. Dresses���������ugh!  Ruffles, tucks, plaits, French knots and  fussiness! But this���������it's a poem! Just  imagine some big creature in that pink  bathrobe or"���������  With a silent laugh, she caught her  b!p between her teeth and moved down  the street toward the dry goods shops.  But the windows appeared cheap, overloaded and tawdry. Berg's store, with  its display of masculine attire whose  severity sometimes verged just near  enough to softness and beauty to be  fascinating, kept rising before her eyes,  and almost automatically she retraced  her steps in that direction.  By the time she again 'reached Berg  & Co.'s she had an idea that made her  giggle, though her eyes were bright  and her cheeks went pink. Some girls,  she reflected, hoarded china and silver,  others linen and still others old mahogany against the day when "time  and chance" should bring the man  whom they all confidently expected.  She would depart from such main  traveled ways and do something equally practical, though more unusual.  She entered the store rather timidly,  but the sight of a portly dowager at  one of the counters reassured her, and  she was soon examining bathrobes  with an ease and assurance that might  have been acquired by. years of shopping for masculine relatives.  "What size?" asked the clerk when,  after much hesitation between a pink  and a blue one, she had finally decided  on the former. _���������   ���������ATthT " "  1  t  ion "she stared at him In  blank amazement. "That is, how tall  is he?" he went on, judging from her  look that she failed to understand.  Then she recovered herself.  "Six feet," she answered, with a non-  cbalant,you-shouJd-bave-tnken-that-for-  grantcd air. And then, remembening  her preference in the matter, she added, "And broad���������very broad shouldered, you know," lu a manner so deliberate and composed that without  further* question* the clerk made out  the check for "Mrs." E. Van Orden  and solicitously begged her to look at  their, "spring shirtings and the newest  cravats.  "I don't think he needs anything in  that lino just now," sho "remarked,  with well assumed doubtfulness, ns  she languidly viewed tho stock.  "Do thoy���������would iny husband have  to bo measured for those shirts?" she  demanded,,' Tho clerk nodded.  "Rut we'll send,a man up any time,"  ho explained, wltli a pollto deslro to be  accommodating, The lady shook her  head.  "You see, that wouldn't do. Ho isn't  here-yot! But couldn't I give you his  collar m'onsuro and couldn't you just  mako thom proportionately?"  The clerk thought they might,  though thoy couldn't guarantee tho lit  undor thoso circumstances, and whon  his customer announced airily that that  wouldn't make tiny difference ho lookod  a trifle mystified,  Elolso monnwhllo emerged Into tho  street aglow with tho eagerness of a  rather bored young woman who has  found n now and Interesting occupation.

Before ber departure from town for  the summer Eloise's carved chest contained many treasures of masculine  wearing apparel. Among other things  six shirts���������it had taken her a forenoon  to select them, and it had almost been  her undoing���������had joined the pink bathrobe   ������������������ '--,.--  It was really the "swagger" monogram on the sleeve that had convinced  ber that she could not be happy until  she added them to his trousseau, as  she called It. She had decided, every  detail���������that on the pale gray one the  monogram should be in dark red, on  the tan In dork brown, etc���������when the  clerk, who had learned to know her  and whom she guiltily permitted to  address her as "Mrs. Van Orden,"  >\used, pencil suspended above his. or-  &ur book, as if waiting for some further instructions. She regarded him Id  surprise.  "That's nil," she said at last.  "But Mr. Van Ordeh's initials���������fpT  the monogram, you know," he prompt  ail  omiHu������l������  Eloise gasped. Never once had it  occurred to her that in order to have  that fascinating monogram on the loft  sleeve some initials would be required.  The floor showed no disposition to  open and swallow her up, and the clerk  sat watching her as if he might tap  his forehead significantly to his fellow  clerks once her back was turned and  shake his, head sadly. What should  she say?   The possible man���������  "Oh, T. P. M���������" she flung out with  hysterical relief as a thought occurred  to her.  "T. P. M���������" the clerk repeated, eying her reproachfully.  "Bight���������er���������they're not for Mr. Van  Orden," she observed firmly, giving  him look for look.  Neckties and scarfplns were added  to her collection without difficulty, but  wben it came to the purchase of a  waistcoat that lured her with its dash  and style the question of size again  cropped up.    By this time, however,  the clerk had learned ,to think of her  as the "eccentric Mrs. Van Orden" and i  was prepared for the vagueness of her ���������  orders.   Not even when she dreamily |  selected a pair of gray socks with dark  red clocks, to match the gray shirt,  and demanded them of a size Jo match.  a~No. TOT collar did he make any demur.  The time for leaving town had arrived, and the contents of the carved  chest were carefully arranged for the  last time and thon locked up with the  eweet scented bags of lavender.  Eloise sighed nt tho thought of leaving the things, for they bad come to  have a sort of personality of their own.  Thoy were beautiful In themselves, and,  besides, the one who was to wear them, j  should they ever, be worn, would be, for ,  her tho king of the world. I  She sometimes tried to picture him, [  but his face eluded her. Yet the face ,  of hor dream often bore a startling  resomblnnco to Philip Hamilton, and  that gentleman himself was becoming  a more nnd moro prominent fact in her,  life.  More than onco sho had surprised a  strange, tenso question in his eyes-a  speculative look that made her happy,  yot afraid, She.half wished that he  was not going to his cousin's for the  summer, slnco that would plnco thom  in tho samo littlo colony for tho next  throo months.  But ln tho wooks that followed, whon  riding, golf and moonlit evenings ou  tho broad plazas brought thom constantly together, her feelings underwent a ohango, and sho was appalled  nt tho desolation sho folt when ho ran  up to town for a few days, as ho did  now nnd then.  It was on ono of thoso occasions,that  sho found horso!f nlono on tho porch  ono evening, when a brisk stop sounded  on tho gravel,  Slio rose as Philip Hamilton sprang  up the steps nud camo toward hor in  tho soft moonlight, tlio tumultuous Joy  that sho supposed lilddon in hor heart  shining In her eyes and dancing on hor  lips,  IIo lookod down nt her for ono mo*  mont with eyes beforo whoso mastery  hor own wavered and foil.

It was ono raluy evening soon nftor  tho return from their wedding trip  that Elolso told her husband tho story  of tho trousseau lt had amused hor to  provide���������n rnle thnt ho llatonod to with  a gust of laughter.

Then his faco sobered, ond bo stared  at tho monogram on a shirt sleeve  llxodly for a second and tbon looked  up at hor with puzzled eyes, whllo she  watched him furtively, wishing that  sbo could get thut ridiculous, effeminate bivtlirulie nut of sight Without his  catching n glimpse of it.  "T. P. M���������" ho said r^owly. The words  Rounded llko water dropping on a bot  stove and eye* took on a steely light.  "I am waiting for you to explain," bo  said coldlv. .  Eloise made a little rush at him and  hid her face on his shoulder. "Don't  you see?" 6he murmured. "Why, you  silly boy, 'T. P. M.' stands for 'The'  Possible Man,' aud so, you see, it's your  monogram!"  . A great light broke over Philip's face,  and as a penalty for the momentary  clouding of his faith he wore the silk  lined bathrobe like a martyr.  A ���������Wmely Prompt.

Under his kimono a man of the upper  class wears a sort of kilted divided  skirt, something approaching the na- *  ture of trousers.   This is called the  "hakaina" and is always made of stitf  silk.  A woman wears instead an uu- !  der kimono.  Both sexes wear two little   aprons   round  the   loins,   called i  "koshi-maki," and a sort of shirt called ;  the  "suso-yoke."   The  narrow  sash  worn by a man is not an item of great,  Importance, for, although it ls always j  made of rich silk, it is not so much for j  thow as for use, to keep the kimono ia  place.

Rose  did not submit to her costuming as  meekly as her father had done. She  pouted at the hanging braids of hair,  bucked against the white "apron and i  begged for a dip to her blouse. Jane  authoritatively silenced and overruled'  these objections, and Rose went sullenly to school.  For five years, since the death of her  mother, Jane had held a tight rein over  the household, and its members were  strictly under Jane rule. She was a  woman of convictions. One of them  was that ber duty clearly lay in managing the affairs of others. People  were afraid of Jane. They submitted  to her domineering or avoided Jt.

But Rose's speech rankled and  lingered in her memory through the  week, and she anxiously awaited what  Saturday might bring forth.   *  It brought Joel just as she was starting her father for town. As Titus gathered up the reins Jane Intercepted the  exchange of winks between her father  and her, lover. This troubled her, and  she was in a puzzled rather than an  antagonistic mood when left alone witb  Joel.  "Come with me," he said, taking her  by the arm and marching her out of tho  house. Surprised, she suffered herself  to be led or rushed through the orchard, down the hill to where the road  wound its way.  "Now,- stand behind this tree and  watch out." he'isaid.  Wondering if he had gone crazy, she  did as he directed. She saw her father  drive jogging Fleetwood up to a zigzag  corner of the rail fence, get out, take  the soapstone, wrap it in tbe shawl  and pitch it behind a stump.

"And has every one about hero  known It?" she asked faintly.  "Yes; they have thought it n good  Joko on you, and thoy liked your father too well to glvo him awny."  Sho looked so utterly miserable that  be almost butnot quite relented.  "No, don't go In the houso yet," ho  Bald, "Thoro goes Rose down the  rond. When sho's ont of sight I want  you to follow."

"Yos, sho hides her apron under a  stono, perks up her front hair and jerk;,  up tho braid to meet It and pulls down  her shirt waist."

Eookb O  D������C������0������CoO������0������OG������0������0������0*Q������0������0  CHAPTER XV.  THE BUND MAX.  Mi|y conversation with Derringer  J had cleared all mysteries except the conduct of Mr. Scovel. Whatever change had  taken place ln my view of tlie young  lady whom I bad known as Anna Lamoine 1 could not conceive that any  man should run away from her because  of her looks. There Is vast variety of  Individual taste In such matters and  yet not enough to satisfy the conditions  of the problem.  Either Scovel had seen somebody else  or the youug lady had assumed a form  of disguise, perhaps upon a warning. It  Was not improbable that Jimmy had  guessed the lawyer's Intention, seeing  him go out for a walk equipped with  his fieldglasses. and had promptly conveyed his Information to the apple tree  lodge.  I was considering this matter as I  walked in the north grove after luncheon and was really very near tbe truth  about lt when I came somewhat unexpectedly Into a path that led me to the  familiar scene of Mr. Trask's artistic  endeavors. My first clear view down  the path showed me Lucy Ann, and  ihe seemed to be Indulging in room  form of exercise. She was pacing back  and forth under the north tree ln a  highly energetic manner. The plain  gray gown displayed her form and carriage to excellent advantage, and I waa  then first aware that nature had very  remarkably favored her. She had a  girlish figure, slender, but most gracefully rounded. There was good breadth  of shoulder, and her head was well set  in the way that shows a high spirit.  I judged that she was parading thus  at Trask's command, so that he and  Miss Jones might make a study of attitudes, and somehow the idea filled me  lwithAvrath.--I_strode-OUtJnto���������the_cIear-  m tMawtwrnrma-wmtwammwat  ed space as one who intends to do  something Important, and when I suddenly perceived that Lucy Ann'was  alone I had the sensation which comes  of ascending one more step than there  is upon a flight of stairs.  She had stopped at the noise of my  advance, and we exchanged a glance  before either spoke.  "I thought Mr. Trask and Miss Jones  were here," said she. "That la how 1  happen to be hero."  "Lucy Ann," said I, "did you ever  try walking as a relief to the mind?  When anything goes wrong, I can almost always get rid of it by pacing tho  floor."  "When anything soes- wrong with  me," sho replied, "I make It go right.  That's better than getting rid of it."  , "You speak with tho confidence of  youth," said I.  "Why shouldn't I?" she answered.  "I have youth, nnd anybody can get  confidence. So thoro you uro. 1 havo  faith to bellevo that I shall havo what  I want lu tho world."  "Might I veuturo to nsk for a few  dot a lis V"  Slio sat dowu upon the grass and  fanned herself lazily. Splendid self  control the girl had. There was not a  sign that her soul had beeu boiling  Within her so recently. But for tlmt  glimpse of her tlmt 1 hud had, walking,  thero like a little tigress In n cage, L  nover should have guessed tbat she  wns not altogether nt pence.  "I wnnt to travel," she said.  "It's not much fun to travel alono," I  suggest ed.  "L will toll you a secret," she ro-  ���������ponded. "It's not for the fun tlmt I  Should go, but JtiKt to travel."  "To get away from old surround'  tags?"  "It la so beautiful hero!" sho cried.  "Who eould wish to go nwny? No, no; I  want to take the surroundings with ino  and leavo myself nt home. Can you dls*  entangle that nonsenseV"  ������������������Busily," I replied. "And ronlly It  Isn't nonsense. It Is always possible to  go nwny nnd leavo yourself at homo.  Tho train starts every minute, nud as  much of you as you please gets aboard.  The trouble is that most of ub aro deadly enreful that our regrets nnd our  anxieties  shnll  uot  mitis  tlto  train.

Hho pressed her lips together prettily  tv.'l yoititinX  loiXf 'i  iln"ii'i  t'meo  no  If  marking tbo points In an unspoken argument.  "It's not honest of the business manager," snid sho. "lie should hnvo Hinld  nnd seen them through. And I haven't  much respect for n person who is dishonest with hliiiHulf about Ills troubles. Mine nhnll go with tne, but they  shall be tny maids and lackeys."  "Dlschnrgo tbem nil," enld I, "pay  tbem their wages mid let than go.  They are not worth their keep."  "Yen, they ore," sho itmlsttd. "I can  trtotio   tbom   worlt.    Ver.   on   second  though,., It occurs to me tbat 1 haven't  any. It was a mere fancy. I am really  very happy."  I gave her my hand as she seemed  about to rise, and 1 did not let go  when she was upon ��������� her feet. She  smiled at me In the cheeriest fashion  and gave me a little shake of the hand  as If we were great friends. Looking  down into the sunbonnet, I perceived  that Trask had been right about her  looks, confound him! She was as pretty as a picture.  My thinking of him seemed to partake of the nature of a psychic suggestion, for I turned about Immediately  and looked straight at him as he came  walking through the field. Miss Jones  was with him, and they bore the customary burden of sketching material.  I bad no wish to; meet the man at that  moment for my '''sentiments' toward  him were not cordial, so I made a lame  excuse to Lucy Ann and slipped Into  the path by which 1 had come.  At dinner that evening l was surprised to see Miss Jones In Seovel's place.  It was the first time, to my knowledge,  -tnat-she-had-appeared-thus-witb-Fraski-  and it struck me that this tete-a-tete  dinner was a trifle pronounced. It was  strange that this girl, obviously bred  to all the conveationalities, should content herself with so little cbnperonage.  There was no longer any mystery about  her so far as I was concerned. She was  the original Miss Jones, and she'shared with Sibyl a hn'lf of tbe apple tree  lodge. Probably Miss Scott was some  one whom they knew and who occupied her present quarters upon their  account. I could not see, however, that  she was of any particular use.  Miss Jones pi list have returned to the  orchard directly, for when, after a  rather warm debate with myself, I deckled to go clown to the lake 1 found  Trask and Miss Wltherspoon upon the  path.  Tliere nre strange tricks of sound on  a still night. Those two people were  talking when I llrst saw theni-tioth at  once, to judge by their attitude. Yet  I henrd only n I'nlnt murmur. Then,  when I hnd tnken not more than three  steps toward tlieni, Lucy Ann's voice  became perfectly audible, though I am  sua* she spoke no louder than before.  "1 am so glnd for you; so glad!" she  mild. "I know that you will bo very  nappy."  I stopped short, and at tbnt momont  thoy both saw ine nnd begun to walk  toward me. Trunk luul a nervous air,  and when ho came close he looked at  me with' n singular embarrassment.  Then he turned nn eye on Lucy Ann,  almost ns It' asking her ndvicn,  "l don't see any objection," wild she',  with a queer lit lie laugh, ".Suppose 1  tell hlmV" And, ns he tniule no sign of  negation, she continued; "Thero were  two people who lived In n free country  a long time without finding out about  It. They Imagined, themselves to be  chained In separate cells In tho wilds of  Bltierla or some place like thnt, Their  jailer's name was the Opposition of tho  Young Lndy'M Family, and he looked  fierce, but in reality lie wan a paper  dummy. So nt Inst, onooumged by  some of their friends, they decided to  walk out, leaving the poor dummy to  guard nn empty prison. They decided  to walk out Into tho beautiful world.  whore lovo Is the mn by day and the  tiiooii hy night"��������� Her voice shook Jam  the least bit, but she steadied It. "The  iiimii was a tine follow, iiiLe turn for an  tu nu, uml ine g.il wan pusmiih i.u.  nnd had developed an admirable tint uro  In the best miiroundingfl. Otic of tlu-m  will not live in so large ,a house I'm  awhile nor have ho many servants, bin  she will have plenty to ent and to wear,  nml both of tlu.'iu will be very happy.  In plain wordu. Mr. Trnsk and Miss  Helena Jones hnve decided that they  will bo married In September."  "I congratulate you heartily," snid 1,  atid tlu- IVltow liiuuililed MiihftliSng  about his grent linpplnons and looked  rather foolishly iu Luey Ann.  For myself, 1 wns full of admiration  for her, but lt was mingled with rage  against tho Inconceivable, blind brute  who paraded his happiness In her presence.  We walked up the path together, and  when we came to the corner of the  house Trask said that he must go in  and write some letters. Upon this I  urged Lucy Ann to go out rowing upon the lake, which was all blended gold  aud silver under the moou. It was  clear that she wished to go, and very  opportunely her aunt came by so that  1 was able to beg her permission. Mrs.  Witherspoon. not only bears a name  tbat Is on the Declaration of Independence, but is herself descended from  a strong man of those times. So she  is thoroughly American in her Ideas.  "I don't see't you need anybody's  permission but Lucy Ann's," said she.  "It looks so pretty," said the girl.  "I doubt it'll be so pretty when you're  there as it looks from here," remarked  Mrs. YViitherspoon. "That's the way of  the world."  "It is worth while to find out," rejoined Lucy Ann.  As we turned to go Trask called to  me: "I may drop In upon you Inter-  midniglit. perhaps.    Are you a night  owl? 1 want to have a talk witb you.''  ""Any timeaTanT" ea id"TT~ 7 ~~    *"  So Lucy Ann and I went out rowing,  and 1 talked to tier of every pleasant  and hopeful subject within the range  of human knowledge. I am not altruistic in conversation.-'as a rule, sticking to my own themes, which are frequently gloomy, but upon this occasion  I drew upon every resource of my  mind and soul for the betterment of my  companion's spirit. The shining water  and the wandering winds of the night  must have taken us for two of the  cheerfulest mortals under the moon.  TWEED RING "GRAFT."  Two Hundred millions Its Direct an*  Indirect Coat to New York.  The new courthouse was still far  from complete and miserably furnished, yet it had already resulted ln  the neat outlay of $11,000,000, when  the most liberal estimate placed its  value, finished and luxuriously furnished, at less than $3,000,000.  A few items will be sufficient to  show the scale upon which the ring  had conducted, its financial policy:  Forty odd chairs and three tables  had a record value of $179,729.60.  A charge for repairing fixtures,  ithrough J. H. Keyser & Co., was $1,-  149,874.50.  Thermometers, $7,500.  Another charge for furniture, through  Ingersoll & Co., $240,564.63.  A single item of stationery was set  down at $186,495.61. What, in heaven's  name, could the 61 cents have paid  for with stationery bought at ring  rates?  __Thenthere were carpets, shades and  Chinamen and Chloroform.     V  When chloroform is administered to  the Chinese, says the medical reports  of the Chinese customs service, tbey.  almost invariably go under without  making a sound or movement, and  when emerging from tho effects of the  anaesthetic tliere is no sickness, and  food can be taken almost at once and  retained.  A Monkey Burglar.  Many burglaries have been commit  ted in Berlin by a monkey which e*>  caped from the aquarium.  ���������curtains, also supplied by that marvelous firm, Ingersoll'& Co., at the fairly  comfortable figure of $675,534.44. Nor  must we overlook one G. S. Miller, a  carpenter, who was set down as having received $360,747.61 for one month's  work.  But Garvey, Andrew J. Garvey, the  plasterer! Generations of plasterers  yet unborn will take off their hats to  his memory! Two million eight hundred and seventy thousand four hundred and sixty-four dollars and six  ccuts had he earned at his humble  trade in the brief period of nine  months.  It Is unnecessary to go further Into  tho details of this monster and monstrous fraud; $5,063,240.83 had been  paid through tiie single "firm" of Ingersoll & Co.  Matthew J. O'Rourke, who since thnt  time mnde n careful study of tho city's  finances, states that, counting the vast  Issues of fraudulent bonds, tho swindling of the city by wealthy tax dodgers, by franchises and favors granted,  by blackmail and extortion, tho total  amount of tho city's loss through tho  Tweed ring stands at not loss thnn  $200,000,000.

It Is the liver that is largely re-'  sponsible for indigestion and constipation���������derangements that are a constant source of trouble.  The bile, which, when left in the  blood, is a poison to the system, causing i biliousness; headache and muddy  complexion, becomes of priceless  value when passed into the Intestines  to aid digestion and ensure regular  actlpn of the bowels.

Kuropatkin wires that the Japs during  last night attacked Djantanchenan i  on the left bank ot the Hun river, j  i  They captured the village but were ;  subsequently driven out with great  1 es. The Russian casualties were  100. The Japanese after a severe  cannonade reached our forces at  this point today. The Russians  first retired hut ultimately re-occupied the village although some outlying parts are still in the hands of  the enemy. A report is current  that Gen Kuropatkin is to hand  over his command to Gen Liuevitch  This report is not confirmed,  Gen, Kuropatkin has wired ihe  Czar apking him for advice and  guidance.

For  the present Kuropatkin wires that  the tro'ops may be relied upon to  stick to their posts but it is difficult to forecast their future actions.  It would be useless at any rate to  command them to resume the advance as the resuliB of such an order may prove disastrous.  An inkling of the fury of the recent battle on the left side of the  Hun river is given by a report  fromOyama-by-ImperiaUheadquar-  ters.
