BY      LOTHROP      PUBLISHING     COMPANY  J  (Continued.) -y'.  CHAPTER XVIIJ.  NEXT day Trove went home. He  took with him many a souvenir of his first term, including  a scarf that Polly had knit for  him and the curions things he took  from the Frenchman Leblane and  ���������which he retained partly because they  were curious and partly because Mrs.  Leblanc had been anxious to get rid of  them. He soon rejoined his class at  Hillsborough, having kept abreast of  lt In history and mathematics by work  after school and over the week's end.  He was content to fall behind in tbe  classics, for they were easy, aiid in  them his arrears gave him no terror.  Walking for exercise, he laid the plan  of his tale and had written some bits  of verse. Of an evening he went often  to the Sign of the Dial and there read  his. lines and got friendly but severe  criticism.  "Is there anything you do not know?"  Trove inquired.  "Much," said the tinker, "including  the depth o' me own folly. A man  that displays knowledge hath need o'  more."  Indeed. Trove rarely came fo* a talk  with Darrel when he failed to discover  something new in hlm���������a further reach  of thought and sympathy or some un-  suspected treasure of knowledge. The  tinker loved a laugh and would often  search his memory for some phrase of  bard or pbilosconer apt enough to pre*  I thy youth I'd*give thee "WK&y.0,  "Since her mother cannot afford to  do it I wish to send her away to  school," said Trove.  "Tut, tut, boy. Thou hast barely  enough for thy own schooling."  "I've $82 in my pocket," said Trovo  proudly. "I do not need It. The job  in flie mill���������that will feed me and pay  my room rent, and my clothes will do  me for another year."  "On my word, boy, I like it In thee,"  said Darrel, "but surely she would not  take thy money."  "I could not offer lt to her, but you  might go there, and perhaps she would  take It from you."  "Capital!" the tinker exclaimed. 'Til  see if I can serve thee. Marry, good  youth, I'll even give away thy money  an' take credit for thy benevolence.  Teacher, philanthropist, lover���������I believe thou'rt ready to write."  "The plan of my first novel Is complete," said Trove. "That poor thief-  he shall be my chief character���������th������  man of whom you told me."  "Poor man! God make thee kind to  him," said the tinker. ,,"An thou'rt  willing, I'll bear o' him tonight. When  the firelight flickers���������that is tho time,  boy, for tales." .,  They built a rude lean-to, covered  with bark and bedded with fragrant  boughs. Both lay in the firelight, Darrel smoking his pipe, as the night fell.  "Now for thy tale," said the tinker.  The tale was Trove's own solution^  ���������oke it.   Of his great store of knowl- i tois Iife mystery, shrewdly come to,-ait-  edge he made no vainer use. er a lon������* and careful survey of the  Trove  had   been   overworking,  and    kiiowji facts.   And now, shortly, time  about tbe middle o_fJuneJhe^.wenlfpr    was'to' Put the- seal of truth upon it  "   *   "     They  B^week-in the woods together,  walked to Allen's tbe first day and  after a brief visit there went off in the  deep woods, camping by a pond in  thick timbered bills. Coming to the  lilied shore, they sat down awhile to  rest. A hawk was sailing high above  the still water. Crows began to call in  the treetops. An eagle sat on a dead  pine at the water's edge and seemed to  be peering down at his own shadow.  Two deer stood in a marsh on the farther shore looking, over at themi Near  by were the bones of some animal and  the fresh footprints of a panther.  Sounds echoed far in the bush of the  unbroken wilderness.  "See, boy," said Darrel, with n. little  gesture of his right band,."the theater  o' tbe woods! See, the slbplng hills,  tree above tree, like whidling ���������,'gijilleHes!  Here is a coliseum ol(J,������ past reckoning.  Why, boy, long before men saw the  Seven Hills it was old. Yet see bow  new it is, how fresh Its color, how  strong its timbers!

Tragedies an* comedies o' the forest are enacted here.  Many a thrilling scene has.held the  stage���������the spent deer swimming for  his life, the painter stalking his prey  or leaping on it," ��������� ,  " 'T!s a cruel part," snld Trove. "He  is the murderer of the play. Icannot  understand why there are io many  villains In Its cant. Both tbe cat and  the serpent baffle mc,"  "Marry, boy, the world Is a great  school, an' tbls littlo drama o' tbe good  God Is part of It," said Durrol. "An'  the play hath a groat mornl-thou shalt  learn to use thy brain or d!#.

Now,  tbe settler's cabin was, like thnt of ray  father, on tbe shore of a poid. It was  round, as n cup'* rim, nnd n mile or  so In diameter. Opposite tbe cabin a  trail came to tbe water's edge, skirting  tbe pond, savo In cold weather, wben  It crossed tbe Ice. Tbey waited for a  night wben tbelr trucks would soon  disappear.

Now, tell;me, hast thou reason  for that?"  "Ample," said Trove. "When thej  took him out ,oi the sleigh the first  words he spoke* were 'Anab jouhan.'

The risk is too great, especially  when you wait to think that Dr.  Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine is for sale In nearly every  store that keeps medicines at all.  This' letter gives you some idea of  the effectiveness of this great medicine.  Mrs. A. Barnum, Ingersoll, Ont.,  writes:-���������"My husband had a very  severe cold on his chest and got so  bad he could not speak above a  whisper. The cough medicines he tried  seemed to have no effect and reading  about Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed  and Turpentine I sent for a bottle.  In two days'he was cured and is very  grateful for such a medicine. He says  we will never be without this medicine in the house,"  The very name of Dr. Chase's Syrup ofi! Linseed    and    Turpentine     is  of which  this  great medicine ^. is composed.  While linseed sheathes the mouth,  tongue and throat, with a protective  coating to prevent injury from hard  coughing, turpentine disinfects and  stimulates the ulcerated parts of the  bronchial tubes and lungs and is almost specific for bronchitis.  Other ingredients which along with  these go to make up Dr. Chase's Sy-  run of Linseed and Turpentine, soothe  the nerves, loosen the cough, aid expectoration, and by thorough action  on the whole system completely cure  coughs and colds, bronchitis, asthma,  whooping  cough  and  sore  throat.

Why, were the early settlers of Manitoba drawn so largely from the counties of Huron and Bruce? asks a writer  in Toronto News. Are they more rocky  and less fertile than other Ontario  counties, and did the people go because population over-ran Hhe growth  of wealth, just as Scotchmen have  been popularly supposed to be shoved  out from their barren land to conquer  the world? There may be something in  that, but the writer, never having seen  either country, cannot say. But, looking at the map, and remembering the  process of settling the Western United '  States, one is inclined to believe thaHi  proximity and ease of travel had much  to do with it. Steamers ran from both  Lake Huron, and Georgian Bay ports  for Duluth long before the Canadian  Pacific Eailway was built. Water travel is cheap and the tendency would be  for adventurous spirits to go up to  have a look at the new country. Some  of them would be seized_of-its.,.advan-.  tages, and^aiter the first score started,  and reports were   received   of   their  firosperous,spirits to go up to have a  bpk at the new country. Some of them,  would be seized of its advantages, and  after the first score started, and re-  f>orta were received of their prosper-  ty in the new land, their relatives and  neighbors would follow. There is no  immigration agent like the prosperous  settler, and so it happened that there  was a large colony from those_counties  ir, Manitoba before the rest of Ontario  had fairly awakened to the fact that  there was such a place. If that ia not  the true explanation, t>ei;haps somebody who knows can give it.  /  I consider MINARD'S -LINIMENT  the BEST liniment in use.  I got my foot badly jammed lately.

In Comox valley there is available-  land for at least five hundred such  families. There are toomanyof that  birds-of-passage class in the province, men who work a while then  loaf u while, and somf eventually  become a burden on the community.  We would (suggest to tho Vancouver World to do a little mies-  onary work in how tho present  Alien Laboi Act is being earofally followed by somo of our lumber companies, and give results of  investigation. We hear rumblings even iu tlito district of violations of the not, and if all be true,  .or oven ono half, then it is up to  S'Jinebody lo protest vigorously  and effectively.

AN   EARLY  CALL  Mark  Twain's  Story   About   Hie  Absentmlnded Brother.  One   bitter   December   night   Orion  (Mark Twain's brother) sat up reading  until 3 o'clock in the morning and then,  without looking at a clock, sallied forth  to call on *a young lady.   He hammered  and hammered at the door: couldn't  get any response: didn't understand it.  Anybody   else   would   have   regarded  that as an indication of some kind or  other and   would  have  drawn   inferences nnd gone home, but Orion dldn t  draw Inferences.  He merely hammeivd  and hammered, and finally the fatuer  ���������of the girl appeared at the door hi a  ���������dressing gown._ He had a candle in  his hand, and the dressing gown was  all the clothing he had on, except an  expression of welcome, which was so  thick and so large that it extended all  down his front to his Instep and nearly  obliterated   the  dressing  gown.    But  Orion didn't notice that this was an  unpleasant   expression.     He   merely  Tvalked  In.   The old gentleman took  bim into the parlor, set the cndle on  a table and  stood.    Orion made the  ���������usual remarks about the weather and  ���������sat down���������sat down  and talked and  talked and went on talking, that old  man looking at him vindictively and  ���������waiting for his chance, waiting treacherously and rfialignantly for his chance.  Orion had  not asked for the young  lady.   It was not customary.   It was  understood that a young fellow came  to see the girl of the house, not the  founder of it.    At last Orion got up  -and made some remark to the effect  that  probably   the   young  lady   was  'busy and he would go now and call  ��������� again. That was the old man's chance,  ������������������and he said with fervency, "Why, good  land, aren't you going to stop to breakfast?" ��������� Mark Twain's Autobiogr������������ii������  tn North American Review.

BRITISH   COLUMBIA  The Practical Application oi the Stenographer's Knowledge  v.  HOW TO ACHIEVE THE GREATEST RESULTS IN THIS BRANCH OF WOMAN'S INDUSTRY  By Cynthia Westover Alden  Copyright. 1805. by A. S. Barnes & Co.  NOW a word as to the different  sources of employment when  you have learned your profession. Business Arms employ perhaps four-fifths of all who are employed.  The age of the typewriter has come  upon us almost stealthily, so that it is  bad form to send out letters in somebody's doubtful handwriting. The man<  or the firm that does it is set down at  once by its correspondent as either very  eccentric or very hard-up. No matter  which may be the supposition, it is  one that repels trade. Therefore, in a  general way, it may be said that lf you  know of any business house that has no  typewriter at work for it, there is a  chance that you may be afforded a Job  there, if you can make terms with the  management.  I need not dwell on the necessity of  accuracy in such work. Remember  that every letter is a contract if it  quotes prices or promises anything; that  your employer can be held in a court of  law to the performance of what your  typewriter makes him promise to perform. If he dictates to you, "our price  for such and such silk is 75 cents a  yard,*' and you write out the letter  T1.2&,": and he signs it without reading  too carefully, the receiver may answer,  "Ship me 1000 yards of such and such a  silk at quoted price," the silk may be  shipped, and ho court will compel the  buyer to pay more than was asked. The  loss will be $400 from that one error.  It  might be ten times as much If tbe figures were multiplied. And there are recorded cases where 14000 or $5000 has  been the penalty for just as simple a  slip. *....-���������.'���������.:���������.  I know the reader will pardon me for  going into the concrete in this way. It  is ao much easier to grasp than abstractions. It is meant only to impress you,  wnen you havo once got a business  place, with the idea that on your accuracy great interests may hinge. There  are one or two other suggestions which  I "want to make about this sort of a  place as stenographer and typewriter.  General Usefulness  The work of taking and writing out  letters will not use up all your time.  You will probably be asked to do thinps  about the office, to assist in other ways  between times. A man would certainly  bave even more of such demands if he  were in your place. Remember that.  And don't do what is asked of you as  if it were a favor, as if you were being  imposed upon. Do it always as a mat-,  ter of course. The more you know about  thc way that business is rton the more  likely you will be to keep your job and  have your wages increased. There is no  instance that I know of where any  woman in your place has ever got more  than $15, except as a reward for this  sort of interest in the employer's business. There's a deop lesson in that statement of fact. Read it over again. It  will bear repeating.  Clergymen, lecturers, authors and  newspaper editors have use for stenog  raphers. The man who has prepared  the thought of a sermon finds a great  relief in being able to dictate the verbal  crystallization of that thought to some  one else, and having it come back to  him in cold, legible typewritten form.  He will demand a lot of patience from  the stenographer. He will order a sentence stricken out; he will partially reconstruct another; he will change an  adjective every now and then, and,  worst of all. he ls likely to make so  many changes when he sees what he  has said, that the matter has to be all  rewritten. Never mind. That is what  you are there for. He must use your  services in his own way.  You will find the same annoyances in  working for an author or lecturer. In  all three phases of the occupation you  will also find your hours subject to the  whim or mood of the employer. There  will be less of this in what an editor  will ask of you. General information is  of great assistance here, and a knowledge of reference books, where vou can  find what you never knew, or what has  slipped your memory, is invaluable. You  write the sound, but your copv must  contain only words of the English language, and name3 or mythological references often compel the oldest hand to  have recourse to the cyclopedia.  Law Stenography.  Another and even larger field ls law  stenography. This does not call for  quits as much general information as  the branches just considered, but It is  like business stenography   in   insisting  on accuracy, and for the same reason,  that errors are costly. Deeds, wills, papers in summons and complaint, and important contracts are copied in law offices. Thousands of dollars may depend  on correctness, even in punctuation.  The strain is great on any one who  realizes this, and one who doesn't is  worthless. But arguments for the court,  or pleas for jury, are often to be dictated, and tn������.-ir scope covers a wido  range of human information, lt is not  wise to interrupt, the dictator. You  must depend on yourself, even where  the language used is technical nnd you  feel that you are walking amid pitfalls.  Thc reward is that you get good wages  fcooner thun almost anywhere else, and  that you can quickly make (yourself  nearly indispensable, for there are not  many good law stenographers in the  business. 1(  When Fitted.  Court stenography is a different thing.  I know of no case where this is done  in a court of record, by a woman. The  positions are public ones, their salaries  are fixed by statute, and they ere filled,  more or lc-ss, by political influence.  When you think yourself fairly fitted  to do ordinary work, that is, when you  have attained a real speed of 120 words  a minute, can write out notes correctly,  and can manipulate the keys*of a typewriting machine readily and effectively,*  you will hunt for a place. If you are  in a large city.you will do well to advertise, understating rather than overstating your qualifications. You should also  answer advertisements, never gettlngr  discouraged at a. failure. You will locate somewhere, if you have patience.  But even in a village there are possibilities.    Suppose  there  are  ten  or a.  doeen  small  merchants  In  town,   and  not one of them has ever sent out typewritten  letters.

In  fact, merely as a matter of general information, it is a valuable asset whenever one has not the integrity of some  established house or person to depend  upon for judgment.  Speaking first of the diamond, the expert's* eye, without applying any tests,  will tell at once the genuineness of a  stone. A real diamond is opaque; you  cannot See through it at all. Whereas  the imitation is largely transparent, or,  at the best, translucent. Moreover, the  real diamond is an absolutely perfect  reflector; Umt is, whatever the light may  be that it is in, it reflects truthfully,-  and that with perfect brilliancy. So  that daylight is the best in which to  test the stone, for even in that pure,  searching light, the diamond reflects the  white, clear rays. An imitation, under  $u'ch circumstances, has what the expert calls a "dead centre"; there is po  brilliancy nor fire; it is dead.  It may be   remembered���������that-imitation���������stones���������are-  alwavs exhibited in a room brMliantly  illuminated with ailificial light, to lend  all brilliancy, possible. In honest daylight the diamond can bear tho scrutiny  of an eye; though, of course, it ia  specially brilliant when under a number  of light sources, such as the myriad  lights of a theatre or the dancing rays  cast from above by the leaves of trees.  One crude test of a diamond is the  file. It makes no impression whatever  upon the real stone. Many clever  "fakes" will demonstrate ostentatiously  upon an imitation, seeking to prove by  vuo file test;that It ls the real article.  They heat the (lie, thus taking the tem-  , pering out of the steel, so that lt cannot  '.    affect tho imitation.  -A perfectly cut diamond has fifty-  eight faces, or l'ncets (the planes), which  number is tho best for brilliancy. Also,  two-thirds of the stone's height should  be under the girdle (the circular edge)  or belt, and one-third abovo, Many  people experience an uncomfortable surprise when a stone breaks or chips. This  coats no reflection whatever upon its  genuineness, It is only an unfortunate  circumstance, The diamond has a grain,  or certain weak spot, which, with perhaps the slightest touch and at the  most unexpected moment, will part it or  chip it, when, under ordinary circumstances, it could be pounded all day  with a steel hammer and come out tip-  harmed,   i ���������*.'.. ;���������.;. ���������;,  The best test for a sapphire is to hold  it up to the light, with the lower point  toward the eye. If it is an imitation, a  red circle appears around the girdle.   In  , a ruby the same test may be applied,  with the opposite result; a blue^cirele  appears; if it is an imitation. In tesrt-  ing an emerald, the imitation presents a  brownish red circle. The file test also  may be used here; One means, which,  however, is not reliable in every ease, is  to seek an imperfection in an emerald.  Nearly all the real stones have then-.;  it is next to impossible to obtain an absolutely perfect emerald. -The French  imitations are specially good, for they  are careful to have the imperfections.  So, should you find a perfect stone, it is  either a cheap imitation or a gem of almost priceless value.   Rather ,_an_amus-  ���������ing-situation!"~ "   ��������� "���������  ��������� ".... -  Perhaps the most interesting jewels  are the so-called limestones���������the opal,  the turquoise, for example, lt may be  i omembtred that the opal is softer and  more brilliant in damp, warm weather.  This is due to the limelike qualities of  its elements; it absorbs moisture and Is  affected by heal, which conditions add  noticeably to Its brilliance. It is soft  and brittle, and acts very like a plant;  when kept dry nnd cold, its llf.3 seems to  droop and ^-ither, and its fire grows  dim: and yet it responds instantly to  ���������warmth and moisture, glowing with indescribable beams. The turquoise acts  the samo way, though in its "live" moments, it is a rich, pure blue.  6l������7er Mexican'Trick  An interesting oxomple of this trait of  the opal is seen among the ^Mexicans.  On the border of the country the natives  in possession of stones cluster about the  points where travelers enter and besiege  them to', buy the gems.   They claim to  have smuggled them, and so sen them  % cheaply. ������ However, they are not above  ~ resorting to a fly  trick to raise  tho  price on the spot.    One   has button-  .   ,,.���������-���������  ������,V    -wot, .��������� mmm-,mm-*>*.m ,*���������������.-<������. m*** -". ~  holed a traveler, or, perhaps, is entertaining a party with his toft, glib-  tongued persuasions. He whisks a jewel  from his mouth, and, presumably to remove the moisture, vigorously rubs it on  his coat for' a few seconds. There you  a;e���������moi&ture and heat (by the rubbing),  and before the interested traveler is a  precious stone, aglow wnh beautiful fire  and soft, myriad-colored lights. Jf he is  a sensible man, he buys and chuckles  about his bargain. However, a little  later on he is not a little puzzled at the  way that opal acts.  Metals and Shells .  Coming now tn precious metals, gold,  of course, \ mnot be Imitated, except in  platings and. iomposllions of brass. The  unfailing test is the use of muriatic or  nitric acid. In the first place, "virgin"  gold, as it is taken from the earth, is  rated a? "24 karat"���������absolutely pure.  The ancMttt artists of India us: about a  22-lguat gt Id. However, this is considered if"* Western world too soft for  practl-_;_ ^j^^s,_and_the_Yirgin,gold is_  alloye* lne percentage'of the alloy,  (copp-*    for red gold, silver for yellow.)  ���������l'V gives firmness iind strength to tho  gold without robbing it of Its beautiful  color.  When acid is applied to 24-karat gold  (virgin gold) it has absolutely no euect  upon it. So, according to the amount  of alloy will the add create a disturbance. In the presence of much alloy the  acid makes a brown stain, and on down,  proportionately, in deepening shades to  red. When applied to brass, there is a  green stain, with bubbles���������n sort of- effervescence. The only test for "gold-  filled" articles is to cut them in half, or  by ..weighing them. Gold-filled means  two sheets of gold, with a layer of composition between, usually of copper and,  sliver. This method is popular for  watchcases and pins.  To the Inexperienced, tortoise shell  may seem to baflle all efforts to "tell  which is which," But it is not eo. Of  course, the expert can tell -almost in-  'stantly; but the amateur, with care and  strict attention, can noon detect an Imi  tation. Appearance, touch nnd smell  are the clues. The practical observer  will notice as he looks at the shell from  each, side that the brown and yellow  markings go through sharply, with no  tapering. The mottled effect is copied  with chemicals applied to the horn,  while heated rollers and pressure send  pigments through celluloid, but in  neither case does art equal in delicate  beauty the. work of nature in producing  the shells. There is a clean, pleasant  feeling to shell that is not found in the  imitations. The horn and bone combs  are likely to have a clammy feeling to  the touch or a suggestion ot grease.  This feature is scmetimes noticeable to  the eye."���������  There.isa popular method of using the  smell test.   Rub the shell vigorously on  a piece of cloth or the hand till warm;  if it is imitation, it will smell of cam-  ' phor.   The heat brings out the odor.  "Tortoise shell does not yield to heat  below the boiling point. Hold a comb,  and if the heat of your hand so alfttts  -the-t'eeth-tha-t-you-can -bend- them-easi!y-  to other shapes, you have celluloid or  some other material. Shell is almost as  elastic as a Damascan blade." Another  point' to note is that the teeth of imitation combs are always more or less  curved, while the real shell. teeth ure  straight, yet comfortable and firm in  tho hair. The chisels in the machine  that cuts out the teeth are set at an  angle so that -they make wedge-shaped  incisions, the sharp ends of the teeth in  one comb coming from the roots of adjacent teeth, in another comb, thus  avoiding- vyaste.  A word here about the care of -real  shell combs mlefht be timely. There ia  more, or less electricity and oil in tho  hair; so.Khe combs should be wiped carefully at night after being removed from  the hair. Use a soft, dry rag, and the  ���������combs-will retain their inimitable cleah,  polished appearance. : .  .It is a simple matter to tell real Ivory.  The camphor test may be applied here,.  too, but the facts that ivory has a  perceptible grain, is a rifib, pure cream  color, is heavier than 'any;, imitation,  *}ake enough information to- protect a  buyer in search of the real article,  Intra form another commodity that is  w*Jely imitated. Summing the matter-  up, they ere either' very excellently Imitated or very badly; in the latter case*  ho novice needs any "tips." And the  good imitations are at the mercy oC  only the expert's eye; it As difficult to,  mention any special point. But it is the-,  in-between imitations that may be spok--  en of-, Coney is,a fairly good imitation  of ermine';" but* the hair, longer, larks-  the fine, silky qualities, and easily'  "roughs." Black tips are sewed on to-  imitate the tails. Electric seal, the imitation of sealskin, has a longer, blacker.,  coarser hair than the real skin, though,  sometimes the real skin is dyed black.  The imitation mole skin is dyed musk  rat. But it has not the soft, silvery-  shades of the real skin, and is less silky.  There are imitations galore of every~  . thing; but, perhaps, these few suggestions in regard to the most valuable of*  life's commodities will help when ones  goes shopping about the world.
