To say that Roger Glendenning was  ���������dumbfounded at the turn affairs had  taken, but faintly expresses the true  situation He had walked in tho  gloom and shadow so long, fully believing his sun had set in eternal  night, that he could not become accustomed to the dazzling sunshine  that illumined his path so suddenly  ���������it almost blinded him.  Boger mourned truly for the un-  timely fate of his handsome, wayward younger brother. But now that  he was no more, he felt relieved that  the dark shadow had been lifted from  his own head by Oscar's hand, and  that it had been proven to Olive  that he was innocent. His surprise  to learn from the judge that there  was.no truth in the story that Olive  and Oscar had ever been betrothed  knew no bounds, and he was fairly  "'.bewildered when the judge added, "I  knew that it was you whom'the little witch cared for, not your brother.", And it seemed to the poor fellow ^tjhat he was transported straight  to hetiven at once when he was invited -to stay to. dinner, and Olive  joined them.  It was the happiest day of Roger  Uleirderiining's life, and when he bade  them gopd-nigh^.at last, and found  himself ''; walking slowly down ��������� the  street alone, he wondered if , it was  not all a dream: from which he  should soon awake and find himself  still enveloped by the same old dark  clouds which made the world so chill  , and gray, and life not worth the'living. Then, he remembered that he had  made arrangements to'' go driving  with Olive the next afternoon. Sure-t  ly the gods were kind to him, after  an. ..    V *  . ���������.: ���������;������������������. ..,    ���������  fledge-Kneeland~was���������vepy��������� anxious-  to atone for the past by doing everything in his power to advance  Giendenning's interest, but Roger  would not allow any money, advances  to be made.  "I prefer to carve my own road,"  he said,, though he was deeply grateful, for his kindly thoughtfulhoss.  ���������Through the judge's influence, however,, he obtained an excellent position with ft large mercantile firm,  and at theVend of the first quarter  of the year Ahe was liked so well and  had proved^himself so valuable to  them that lie' was taken in as junior  partner.       |: *  His sky n&w looked roseate with  happiness, H$;;r-*W*as a constant visitor at Judge-jKneeland's home, and  one lovely summer evening, not long  since, while fhoyj'wjoro standing on  the balcony, he had, summoned up  -���������sufficient courage to ask Olive to  marry him, begging! her to toll him  then and thero if sVioYcould over care  for him* that, much.    \  Ho never forgot hoty she drew  back from him, looking np at him  shyly from bonoath those long, curl-  . ing lashes, and after long coaxing  for a reply, admitted, with ������,7o������������  covered by tho prettiest and sweetest blushes in tho world, that she  had cared for him more than for any  ono olso from tho vory first moment  they had mot, and through all his  troubles sho hnd carod for'him'still,  Judge Kneeland, who waB sitting  ��������� in an adjoining room, apparently engaged in his newspaper, but In reality listening keenly to what wns going on out on tho balcony, concluded that, that was a very propm* moment for him to put in on appear-  mien on tho scono. Ho put this  thought into execution at once, much  to tho discomfiture of tho lovers.  Well, it was cruel just at that particular epoch of their love-making,  Of course, tho whole matter, was referred to the Judge, who gavo a very  gracious consent, but declared, whon  Kogor plnnded for an immediate marriage, that that .whs not to bo  thought of, that if ho succeeded in  claiming Olive's hnnd in six months  from that timo ho must conHldor himself very fortunnto.  Thero was nothing for It but to  puhmit to tno Btorn decree. There  was but ono drawback to Roger'*  happiness, and that was ho hnd lost  nil trace of his friend .lack Murray,  who had boon lite guardian nngol ������1������  roobt during thoso long, weary weeks  k-'i v.������...j*li.,i v'lt dc-ii In "T.nii'-itni'in.  v-V.on hi" trnnbl-** r*or������nied grantor ���������)linn  he could lifinr, nnrl If it hnd eat been  for Jack he would have ended hli������  wretched cxistumo then and then*.

Poor Oscar! he was  his own Worst enemy. He might  have had a brilliant life of it, but ho  got on the "wrong road and would not  turn back."  Time flew by on golden, happy  wings. The six months, dwindled  away at last, and it wanted but four  days more now to the dawn of his  wedding day. Roger Glendenning was  inexpressibly happy, yet through it  ull thero were moments of vague unrest, a dark foreboding as of some  unlooked-for event which would come  and shatter his cup of happiness just  as it was within his grasp.  While the preparations are going on  for the wedding, and the feast is  being made-ready, we must take this  occasion to leave Roger Glendenning  and Olive in their happiness, reader  mine, and return to Neva, the fair  ymmg Southern girl -who had been  wade such a cruel plaything of by  capricious fate.  The train which she had boarded  that midnight carried her swiftly  away from the scene of her childhood,  aad as the tall hills and smiling valleys, lying so peacefully in the moonlight, faded from her view, * she  bowed her head and wept like a  child, and thus sobbing, tired nature  e nd overstrained nerves asserted  themselves, and she fell into the deep  lUeep of exhaustion.  The noises of the early mornir.g  awakened her quite as soon as the  ���������sun was up the following clay. For a  moment she felt stunned and bewild-  eced at finding herself on a train and  In the midst of the noise and confusion which surrounded her. Then  came the swift thought that she  was journeying toward the place  where she was to meet her young  hTsljaKd7T"that-each-momenfc-and-cacli-  revolution of those great iron wheeln  brought them nearer and nearer each  other. ������������������<���������' ': ���������  The. girl pressed her sweet young  face against the window-pane and  gave herself up to beautiful reveries  which are so/ dear to maidenhood.  She watched the sun climb to the  zenith, cross it and sink slowly toward the western sky, with a smile  on her lips, the deep yearning grdw-  fng in hor lovely dark eyes. Only a  few hours more and she would be  with him, never more to port un<il  one of them died, and she prayed  that God in heaven would take her  first.  She watched the '''isk of night creep  up, and the gloain...,;"; settle into deeper night; watched tho bright stars  and tho full, bright moon that almost Boomed to "keep pace with tho  flying train. Sho smiled up lovingly  at the moon, saying to herself that  its bright beams shone over him,  wherever ho might bo at that selfsame moment/but quite as soon as  hor dark head touched tho pillow in  hor ���������Sleeper, sho sunk into tho deep  oblivion of sleep.  It was noon tho next dny when tho  Southern express steamed into the  Grand Central. Depot in Now York.  Nova's heart boat high with expectancy, and ovory moment that the  great crowd hold hor back seemed like  end lens years to hor, At last, she in  turn roachod tho door,, was hurried  down tho stops of tho car by tho  conductor, and stood on tho platform; but n������ ono riiRhod up to her.  Quickly hor oyos traveled eagerly  ovor tho donso throng, but her young  hwsbnnd wan not there. Every ono  had somo ono to groot them, Where  Was ho? A strange wave of desolation and terror swept over her, A  groat sob roso to hor lips, and Room-  <i<\ to stick in hur throat nnd uhoko  hor; groat toars hrlininod over her-  eyolldB arid ��������� splashed down on hor  littlo trembling hands,  All tho groat crowd .rushed hurriedly 'through tho xatos, and who was  ���������loft clone on tho platform,  Thivo, four, flvn minutes dragged  thoir blow lengths*by; still sho stood  there, with her, white, pretty young  face turned despairingly toward tho  gates, tho tours now falling llko rain  from hor eyes.  At tho far ond of the platform a  ���������fw-tHrnmnn stood watching . hor curiously,   At length he approached Imr,  "Are you looking for any one,  mlsB?" ho inquired, kindly.  "Yes, sir," sobbed Neva, chokingly. "I���������I waa to meet my���������my husband hero, and 1���������I must havo mlst-  oii him hoiuuiiow, and 1 uo ma Knun  what to do,   I���������l am so frightened."  Tho policeman looked hard at hor,  saying to himself that the tfirl, with  her frank young face and beautiful,  innocent oyos looked moro llko a  child who should havo boon playing  with her dolls, than a wjfo,  "How long have you been war*  rled?" ho asked, suddenly.  "Only two days," murmured Neva,  blushing as red as a roio, "and ht,  my husband, waa called suddenly  away, and he left money for me to  come to him; and now I am here, tut  I t*u uot find Um."  "It is the, old, old story," thought  the policeman���������"a too trusting maid  and a scoundrel who has tired of her  and flung her off."  "Have you a home and a mother,  little girl?" he queried, earnestly,  and to his great relief she nodded:  "Yes."  "I would advise you to go right  back by the next train, and wait for  him there. Tell your mother, just  how you happened to miss him here,  and she can advise you what to do."  Neva looked at him indignantly,  "My husband will soon come to uie  hero," she said. "1 shall wait for  him here until Tio comes. Is thero no  waiting-room?" **;���������  "Yes," answered the man, pityingly; "como this way, please."  He opened the door and motioned  her to enter.  "If there is anything I can do for  you," he said, "do not hesitate to  call on me. 1 shall be just outside;  and while you wait, think over what  I have said about going back to your  home���������do, miss."  There was something suspiciously  like a tear in the policeman's honest  eyes., He had a young daughter of  his own at home whom he. loved as  the apple of his eye.  What would become of this young  girl? he thought. How would life  end for her? Would she grieve for  awhile, then go the same road he had  known of so many traversing? He  clinched his great, strong hands, and  his mighty bosom heaved, and he  breathed out a terrible imprecation  against the young man in the case,  whoever he might be, and tried to  forget the girl sitting waiting inside,  but in vain.

"Before my daughter Lena began  taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills she  looked more like a ..orpse than a live  girl," says Mrs. Geo. A. Myles, of  South Woodslee, Ont. Her blood  seemed as though it had all turned  to water. Then sht oegan to have  bad spells with her heart. At the  least excitement her heart would beat  so rapidly as to almost smother her.  She grew very thin, and had no appetite, and what liuJe food she did  eat did not seem to nourish her. She  was treated by one of the best doctors in this part of the country, yet  she was daily growing worse and her  heart got so bad that we were afraid  that she would die. She slept but  very little, and would frequently  awake with a start and sometimes  would jump right up in bed. These  starts would always bring on a bad  spell and leave her weak and .exhausted. We had almost given up all  hope of ever seeing her well again,  when we decided to try Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills. After taking a couple of  boxes she beganjto sleep better at  night, and color began to return to  her lips. Prom that on she kept  right on gaining and after taking  eight boxes of the pills she was again  in good health. ��������� She is now fifteen  j ears ;of age, the, picture of health,  and since beginning the pills .has  gained about forty pounds in weight.  Only those who saw her when ill can  appreciae the marvellous change Dr.  Williams5 Pink Pills have brought  about in her condition. I believe  that had it not been for the pills she  would be in her grave to-day; and it  is with feelings of deep gratitude that  1 write you in* the- hope that it may  benefit some other sufferer."  And Dr. Williams' Pink Pills can  do just as much for the weak, ailing,  pale-faced young woman who is slipping from anaemia into a deadly decline. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually make new blood. In that way  t.hey strike straight at the root of all  they strike straight at the root  of all common diseases like anaemia, headaches and backaches,  heart palpitation, indigestion, neuralgia, rheumatism and the "secret ailments and irregulartiies of girls and  vomen.

Mr. Alfred Pleau, an expert machinist, 173 St. John Street, Quebec  City, Canada, writes:   ��������� '.  "Two years ago, an accident necessitated my confinement for several  weeks. The good health I had enjoyed was slipping, away and there  developed a complication of diseases.  My physician said my case was one of  general debility.  "Among the many ailments which  developed was a serious attack of catarrh, which annoyed me considerably and kept me awake whole nights.  "t decided to give Peruna a trial  and soon found it acting as a wonderful tonic to my system. The catarrh grew less severe and shortly afterward disappeared, as did also the  various other maladies.  "I attribute my prompt relief and  ultimate cure entirely to the use of  Peruna and gladly recommend it."  Don't Stand When Yoa Can Sit; Don't  Sit When You Can Lie  Down.  Women sit too much, and women  stand quite too much. Nothing is more  wearisome than "standing about," even  to the "well trained body that has been  drilled into good poise, and sitting is  not resting, however cleverly women  may delude .themselves on this point  The young girl who desires to keep  away crow's feet and the jaded look  and to retain the suppleness and bloom  of youth should when off parade and  duty and in her own room make a  couch or the floor her habitual resting  place.  Absolute repose comes to the tired  muscLls only wheu the body is in a reclining position, and absolute repose  comes to the overstrung nerves only  when the muscular system is perfectly^;  at rest, relaxed.  Tbe middle aged woman can woo  back much of the freshness and llthe-  someness of girlhood if she will be at  a little pains to learn how to rest.  Five minutes of rest flat on the back  on the floor or on a hard, smooth couch  are worth half an hour of so styled,  rest in an armchair or In that unre-  poseful tempter, the rocking chair.  Some one has said to the woman of  today: "Never stand when you can sit;  never sit when you can He down." This  exhortation, applied with some elasticity, is an excellent beauty recipe.

A reader,, asks if shavings would  make good scratching litter, and as the  answer was not very positive in its  favor I will venture to speak from several years' experience and say that I  have always used them with the best  of success and prefer good, clean shavings to any other material, says L. E.  Hudson in American Poultry Advocate. They will not pack down so  much as straw, and as most shavings  are from dry lumber they will absorb  more moisture than other material.  They will also last longer. With six  to ten inches of shavings on a good  floor you may depend on your fowls  getting proper exercise.  r  The William Snyder took away 380,-  000 bushels of wheat in one land from  tho Fort William elevators, tho record cargo out of Thunder bay.

Tea and coffee, however, bead the  list, and these two drinks, which the  famous William Cobbett denouuced as  "slops." have been the means at spur-  ring many a drowsy journalist to renewed energy.  Voltaire, tho Icing of wits and litterateurs, was a confirmed coffee drinker.  In his old age bo often took fifty cups  a day, which sadly hurt his digestion  and hastened his death. Balzac never  drank anything else but coffee, .and  during the early hours of the morning,  for he began at 12 o'clock midnight, be  used to take copious drafts of thla  stimulating drink.  iir James Macintosh was so fond of  coffee that he used to assert that tbe  powers of a.man's mind would generally be found to be proportional to ths  quantity of thnt stimulant which be  drank. Cowper pays a tribute to tea in  the "Task" when he says "the cup that  cheers, but not inebriates." He was  very fond of the Chinese beverage.  But the king of tea drinkers was Samuel Johnson. On one occasion Sir Joshua Reynolds reminded the great man  that he bad drunk eleven cups of tea,  whereupon Johnson retorted: "Sir, I  did not count your glasses of wine.  Why then should you number my cups  of tea?"  Chinese Monopolist.  Chang Chlen, of Chlnkiang, has already eleven textile, ftonr, silk,'soap,  machine and other factories, says the  Shanghai Commercial Intelligence, and  he has nineteen new enterprises, all  with steam and Electric equipments, in  hand.

It doubtless will be news to many  that Edward VII Is the one king in all  the world who, unites In his person the  oldest royal dignity in Europe vrlth the  oldest blpqd royal���������and both Irish. Por  he t������ genealogically and indisputably  the direct descendant and eupr-etne representative of the high kings of ancient  Ireland. The history of Ireland goes  back to Coneirie Mor, or Conairy the  Great, who -00 years before Christ ruled as high king over the clans of the  Gaels of Ireland at Tarn. From this  Cohalry the Great, the historic ancestor  of the Hy Ntals, to King: C>naor Mac  Nessa, who was the contemporary of  the Ronton Emperors Tiberius and Augustus; from Connor Mao Neasa to  King Nlal of the hostages, who reigned  ln the generation before St Patrick  came to Ireland; from King Nlal to  King Malcolm Can Mor, who married  Princess Margaret, sister of the Saxon  king Edgar Athellng; from King Malcolm to the heroic King Bruce of Scot-  fettd; and from thenoo, through the  Stuarts, the house of Hanover and that  of Coburg, to Edward VII, the descent  Is as direct and as Incontrovertible as  any descent In ancient or modem history, says the Marquise de Pontenoy..  Of course, there -are other people,  some of them great Irish nobles, and  others, mere oommonera, besides hundreds of persons who can show descent  from the ancient kings of Ireland. But  all hivvo quitted the royal caste, which  King Edward Is alone to retain. Por  all those who wish to havo fuller par*  tloulars of this Irish ancestry of King  Edward, I would refer to tbo works of  (he late Str Bernard Burke, Ulster kin*  at arms, to other eminent genealogists,  and lost, but not least, to that trusted  associate ef Parnell and former Nationalist member of Parliament, Prank  Hngih O'Donnell, a recognised authority  on Irish history.  This Irish ancestry of King Edward  Invests his dynasty with an sntlqulty  superior to that of any reigning house  of Europe. Indeed, lt Is necessary to  seek the records of snob offspfthf of  the gods as the Mikado of Japfgi for a  genealogy to rival the -woll-Tdih " tj*-  rmlllannlal ancestry of Edward Va*  heir of Wettlni Jiofr of Quelph, \\m\r:ijjf  Stuart, heir of Bruoo. and heir of Nlal  ���������on annestry wWeji many Irishmen  apparently Ignore wfoen they refuse to  do honor to the present King of Ira-  lnnfl,  The Wedding Cheque.  An absentmlnded, man was com-  plaining of his Infirmity when a -friend  ���������aid:  "You are Mke the old father at the  Wedding, eh?

The fact that Bileans are  being looked up to as the  safest and surest and most  perfect family medicine of the  day is due to the many distinctions existing between  Bileans and old-fashioned  medicines- Bileans occupy the  foremost place as a cure for  blliou-mes3,cons,tipation, piles,  CANADIAN NOBEL PRIZE.  sleeplessness, indigestion, hsadache, dizziness, and all stomach and  bowel complaints. *���������>  First, Bileans are purely vegetable. They contain none of the  mineral po sons (mercury, calomel, bismuth, etc) such rs are found in  the older pills. They are I repared from a formula altogether unique,  and possess ng a strictly natural action on the system. They do not  gripe, weaken or purge. They suit young and old. They promote  digest.on���������give tone to the walls of the stomach and bowels  brace up the tirad nerves and stimulate the lfver. Equally  to the housewife in the home, the daughter engaged in the  office or store, and the farmer, Bileans are an indispensable boon.

"I felt dull and sleepy, had no energy whatever for work, and every now and agaiiv  I had a bad attack of biliousness. The food I ate seemed to Ue heavy onmj stomach  and did me no good. I had wind and cramps in the stomach and bowels from the  food decomposing. The*constipation was so bad that my bowels had to be forced at  each passage. All kinds of medicines I tried, but nothing did mo any lasting^ood  until I got Bileans. I have never found anything to equal them for constipation, liver  and stomach troubles. They soon began to dome good and in the end cured mc.  Since then I feel like a different woman. I am bright and buoyant in spirits, not dull  and sleepy as I used to be. I have got my energy and activity back; and, in fact,  all my ailments have yielded to Bileans."

Deceased left a considerable estate, and  two clauses of his will are of publio  interest,  A bequest of $10,000 to the "University of Toronto is made in the following clause: I give, devise, and  bequeath to the Provincial University  of Toronto the equivalent of $10,000 on  the following terms and conditions,  namely, that the interest therefrom  shall be given from timo to time, but  not necessarily every year, like the  Nobel prizes in a small way: (1) To any  Canadian from one end of the country  to the other, and whether student or  not, who invents or discovers any new  and Improved process for the treatment  of Canadian ores or minerals of any  kind, after such process has been prov-r  ed to be of special merit'on a practical  scale; (2) Or for any important discovery, invention, or device by any  Canadian that will lessen the dangers  and loss of life .inreonneotion with the  use of electricity; in supplying power  and light; (3) Or for any marked public distinction achieved(1by any Canadian in scientific research in any useful practical line.  ��������� The Nobel prizes, on which his bequest is modelled, are those founded  by the late Swedish millionaire, Al-  lVed Bernard Nobel, as a reward for  those who have rendered some signal  service to mankind in tbe realms of  science, medicine, art, or in the promotion of, ��������� peace throughout the  world.  Mr. MoCharles, who died on' Aug.  5th at Victoria Hospital, Montreal,  was widely known among mining men  as one of the first to become interested  in the Sudbury nickel mines, and enjoyed quite a reputation as a well-informed man of the K^r'd.

"Tho adjuster found that somo sixty  or seventy minor josses wore also insured. When ho reported this wc certainly had a merry timo trying to figure how much a god was worth who  couldn't care for himself. But wo finally arranged a scale of values that satisfied everybody,"  The Useful Douglas Mixture.  Douglas mixture is made as follows:  Sulphate of iron (common copperas),,  eight ounces; sulphuric acid, one-half  fluid ounce; oue gallon of water. To  prepare mis tonic, placo the gallon of  water in a jug or crock and add the  copperas. When the latter is dissolved  drop in the sulphuric acid, and when  the compound clears it is ready for  use. A less quantity may be made in  a small bottlo ln the same proportions.  The mixture is a tonic, which may bo  given to fowls ln drinking water at the  rate of a gill to twenty-five head every  other day.  Superstitions of l'lsherme-n.  English herring fishermen are, many  of them, remarkably superstitious. For  'instance, on some fishing boats whistling is forbidden, and neither, milk  "nor burned bread is allowed on board.  t Furthermore, not even the name of  fthat unlucky animal, the bare, may be  (mentioned, and a common method of  ^unishhigan enemy is to throw* a dead  hare intoVhis boat Some of the fishermen believe in luck attending an odd  numbered crew, but the good fortune  'may-be7neutralized^-sh()iild~onei-of-������th_-  Aumber have red hair-London Standard. v  j        The Evil of a Good Nome.

She was a gray squirrel, with a  saucy, frisking, bushy tall and lovely,  big, dark eyes���������two marks of beauty  highly esteemed in squirrels.  If Sylvia WAS only a baby, she was  a very Independent one, with a strong  will of her own, which she first manifested1 by stating firmly (not very  gently, either) that handling was  most distasteful to her. and that a  cage was qultfe too wretched an affair  for lier to honor with her presence.  Like most babies, she usually had  her own way. Her sharp yellow teeth  were as good as a  PLEASE DO NOT HANDLE  sign. And she w������s so much more  happy and beautiful when let out of  her cage to. leap from.chair* to chair  , and go scrambling over the curtains  than when standing on.her hind feet  a*.lonely little prisoner, with her nose  against the bars,, that we never shut  her up if we rould And any one willing to watc.h, her.  We alwayj felt that we belonged to  Sylvia more ^ihan Sylvia belonged to  us. She, seldom permittedus to put our  hands on her, but would crawl all over  us, and when she happened to be in  one of her,playful moods she would bite  and scratch our hands just as a playful  little kitten would do.  Then, top, she looked on us as the  chief source of nuts���������cracked nuts, if:  you please; If we dared offer her un-  cracked ones, she firmly poked them  back into our hands and patted our  fingers down over them���������a, reproof which  we could not help but understand.  Once she hid a nut ln a lady's hair  and abstracted in its stead a bone hair  pin, which, strange as it may seem, she  regarded as the choicest of the dainties,  and gobbled down with amazing relish!  We human beings were not the only  ones who stood in wholesome awe of  Miss Svlvia's sharp teeth. The fox  terrier, too���������poor little wretch!���������was  afraid of her, and would run yelping  from room to room with naughty Miss  SyiVia biting his heels. ���������- .  ���������  If Madam Ginger, our family cat, had  been a less dignified person, she, too,  might have suffered. As it was, we  could see that she regarded .Sylvia's  wild, rough manners with silent disfavor, and once or twice we saw a look  in her eyes which seeemd to say, "Wait  till I catch you. my giddy young lady!"  Sylvia being so tame, we often let her  go out of doors, and generally managed  to bring her in again without much  trouble. One evening we opened her cage  and let her out as usual, and soon she  was sporting among the branches of an  apple tree that grew In the yard.  Now, Sylvia wata quite a flirt, and always if one of us waa out on the lawn,  she would come scampering over the  limbs till she was Just within reach;  then, with the most impudent whisk of  her lovely tail, she would dart to the  very highest branch and sit chattering  roguishly. ��������� -.     .  ���������   a  On this particular evening, Madam  Ginger suddenly appeared on the scene,  and before any one could stop her she  had climbed the tree and taken a,  crouching position on a high limb, lashing her tail to and fro, while she watched the gambols of her little innocent intended victim. : ��������� ��������� ������������������"��������� ^  ', "Poor little Sylvia! Is this to be the  sad end of your evening's frolic?" we  wondered, and seeing the cat; about to  spring, we put our hands over our eyes  to keep from seeing the sight.  There was a sudden whir-r-r, a rustle,  a cry! Down the tree, flew Madam  Ginger, her dignity for once cast to the  winds and her tail big with terror! She  was fairly routed, and lf ever a squirrel  laughed, Sylvia did as she leaped hilariously from bough to bough.  No doubt she laughed in derision later,  when, after trying in vain to coax her  down, we placed her cage under the.  tree, hoping that it might please her  ladyship to make her usual return to it.  But no! Whether she was justly indignant at Madam Ginger's assault upon  'her, or was' merely bored by our society.  we shall never-know. We never saw  her again.  Don't you think she probably found  her way back to the woods and is this  very autumn storing away nuts for a  family of little Sylvias? In that case,  who do you suppose cracks the nuts  for the saucy lady? C. M. B.  tiycw  THE boys of the' Durham Boarding  School   were   gathered  on   the  campus, engaged in a very anl-  ���������mated-discussion.   "I tell you, fellows," said Joyce, the  captain of the football eleven, "that  chap Dale is a beastly cad and a coward, and if he were not such a good  quarterback I'd send him to Coven-  try."  Dale was, a new boy at the school,  had never been away from home before  and was inclined to be "sissified," as  the boys ut the school had often remarked.' ,, .  Ho had on several occasions refused  to fight, when challenged by boys who  were by no means stouter than he, and  now, yvpen struck by Joyce, had calm'y  walked; away. .-,  The ?two things most despised by  schoolboys are u thief and coward, and,  even though Dale had scored the winning touchdown Jn the game between  Durham and Preston and a report had  como to the school that he had thrashed one of the village boys for Ill-treating a kitten, tho boys kept him at a  distance,  ' At last this became unbearable, nnd  he resolved to leave after the Christmas holidSys.  It was the 20th of December, tho last  . day of school, and tomorrow tho boyH  would return home for a threq weeks'  vacation. The senior class gave un entertainment In tho evening, and had  decorated the assembly room with ever-  groen and holly,  At half-pa-ft 10, when nil tho boys  wore in thoir dormitories, n smell of  smoko wan 'detected issuing from tho  assembly room, and In another fifteen  mlnuteB the boys were out of the building watching the ilremen light tho  flames. The green decorations had In  some mnnner caught fire, nnd, nfter  smouldering for somo time, had set fire  to the celling,  Dale was with the othor boys, when  lie.suddenly remembered that littlo Jtm-  mio-CUilr Woh In'the sickroom with n  sprained nnklo. ,  Quick uh iv flnsh, ho was through tho  front door, nnd, groping through tho  Hmoko, found his way to the room  where Jlmmlo was vainly trying to  crawl to the door. Ho carried him to  tho window and down the flro-escano to  safety.  ���������m  EVERY country has its own customs, many of which are very curious and picturesque. And some countries, like the United States, are so large that the customs of one section are quite different from  those of another section of the same country.  For instance, it is only in certain parts of the South that a young man, when he wishes a young  lady's company to a party, asks her if he may "tote her" to the function. No young man in any other part 6j_  the South or in the North or East or West would think of using the expression unless as a joke.        ..,  Polly Evans cannot tell you what phrases this handsome Latin gentleman employed to invite his lady;  ���������love_to visit the village fair with him.   But they were beautiful, soft, Italian words, you may be sure.   For  everything conhe~cted~with"th^^^  A  Would you boys be as gallant as Beppo, do you think, and foot it yourselves up and down the mountain"  passes, leading the donkey upon which you have enthroned your lady love ?  Perhaps you have no lady love as yet, and you certainly have neither donkeys nor mountain passes.  But you meet with girls and women every day. YOU do not let them stand in the aisles and suffer from the  rough jolting of the cars, do you? YOU do* not fail to uncover your head in tiie presence of ladies, do you?

Ho  was buck in the building before .any  one could prevent him, carrying a long  rope with him. He reached the hall and  lowered Mrs. Norman from tho window,  ns tho fire-escape had become loosened  from Its fastenings and fallen to the  ground.  Ho went back into the room, nnd  nothing was seen of him for a few minutes, when Joyce, running through the  front door una up the staircase, which  was now nblnzo, disappeared, onlv to  nppcar nt tho window with the unconscious, form of Dale, who had become  overpowered by smoke.

Qoyemment and its critic*  Tbe most bitter   and   persistent  political critics are those who have  failed most signally in   conFtruci-  Jve statevmanBJbip.   For  the  last  mopth the Liberal press ,of the Pro-  yinee has been  making  a  "dead  flet" on the financial  administration cf tbe  McBride  Government.  ybe attack Js obviously tbe  result  /entirely    ojf  partisan   prejudice,  There is scarcely a pretence of genuine oriticiem.   Jt is conceded,  as  indeed it must be, that the Govern-  ment has .checked the series of annual defioits, unbroken   for  years  before tbe advent to office of Hon.  Mr McBride and  bis colleagues.  But, tbe criticp reply,  tbat result  Jjas been acbioved  by  Increasing  taxes and refusing eyen  peqessary  expenditure.   It is rather diflloult  to see how any Government, or any  /corporation can convert  a  deceit  futo a surplus, except by increasing revenue or f.ducing expenditure or both.   The charge that iux.8  bave been raised beyond the cap-  * oity of the i#f>nte to bpay tbem is  rfdioalous, and  wjll be received  wltb blank atna?er)ient  by those  wbo have board and  read  of the  splondid developments in the mining industry during the past two  years, of the revival of lumbering,  of the establishment of many large  and    importnnt    manufacturing  plant., and of tbe proud   position  just aohioved by the  farmers and  iryi.gf.vrtiM. ut H. ,C.  *,  potilicn  largely duo, a������ they tall gladly  acknowledge, to the intelligent advice  and liberal assistance given by the  Prov, Dept of Agriculture.   "Broken promises to deal  with  railway  lituation aftei proclaiming necessity for action" is one other arraignment of tbe ftomoroent by certain  profeesional crltfoe.   It w*i������  urged  that the Premier hnd lost a price-  ItM opportunity when be failed   to  aeoute railway construction -������tonc������.  These oritics sneered when Hon Mr  McBride expla;ned in parliamentary language, as   truetee   for   tke  Province, he   had   refused   to   be  "held up" by railway corporations  for either, raone'y or land.    W������ attitude has been amply justified by  subeequent   developments,   Three  railway    companies  are  already  building, even fighting for the op.  portunity, where all declared   thnt  construction without   Govern own t  assistance   was   im*<o-*ible,   Hon!  Mr Mo'hride  and   his   c.'ileitgu^*  wisely chone a middle course, pub  lio works, whose construction   was  immediately necessary,  or   which  promised enrly returns in revenue,  were   steadily   prpe^uted.   Only  those have been delayed whose ur-J  gervsy is not clear and from   which  faults   are    problematical.   The  fact Ibat all tbo ajt^k in concentrated m������n tho Premier is itself u  ^.cognition of him as the mnstur of  the administration, and tbo puide  and leader of his party, ae no Pro  rnior of t>>\Q province has boon siiu;e  tbo retirement of Tbe^dore  Da vie,  except Mr Joseph Martin, who wa*?  his own cabinet and his own party.
