CO.,  LIMITED  London, Melbourne and   Toronto.  , (Continued!.  CUAPTlfiU XVII  At tho adjourned inquest Dorothy  \va������ called'-to give evidence, and a  half-suppressed, murmur of sympathy  ran round tlii* big room 'at the Inn  vhr������n she. rose to. ..nnswer to her  nnine. The placo was packed to  overflowing, for the ^oase, involving  ns it did ono of the most prominent,  landowners In tha neighborhood,  hnd aroused unwonted interest, and  everyone who could by any possibility be squeezed Into the room was  there. Mr. Wynne, the coroner, an  elderly man with a naturally sharp  maimer, and a not. wholly undeserved  character for severity, spoke, more  Konlly than he had ever been known  to ftpeak to the tall woman, whose eyes  looked nt him so wistfully, and then  looked with a certain quiet'", confidence toward the place where her  husband sat. Miles was pale, but  his face wore no signs ot disturbance,  the steadfastness of his eyes was undaunted, nnd his wife's confident  glance in his direction made his  heartbeat his;h; bis answering smile  to her was full of reassurance. The  coroner's face softened as he said���������  I am very sorry to have to ask you  to come here, to-day, Lady Hernesley,  but it is imperative that you should  answer a few questions.  Dorothy assented quietly, and her  eyes met those of the coroner with  n certain fearless directness that  greatly Impressed him ln her favor.  The former evidence baa shown  conclusively that:Sir Miles was not  at home on Monday duri;\g the time  the murder was ��������� commute.1; at what  time did he go out?  At, about;half-past, six. He and 1  walked across the. park together lb.  the gate leading into the lane.; It!'  Is called tlie Green. Gate.  There he left you?  There he left me- He was going to  the Home Farm on business."..  And when did lie come back?  ���������lust, before eight.  Late.' than was his custom?  Yes���������a good deal later.  Did he account, for this lateness?  Nfo;^Jie apologisec], and said he had  been dHalned~arihe"faThT  Did you notice anything' unusual in  his manner? For a second Dorothy  glanced down at her husband, who  met. her glance with a smile.. She  hesitated, then with a proud lift of  the hervd, she answered���������     .  He was very quiet and distrait. Tie  had some important-business'to think  over. ''-.-.-���������  You know what the business was?  Oh, yes. V  Had it; anything to do with.tho  young man known as Denis Tritton?  A little color crept Into Dorothy's  face.  Yes.-     - ���������'    ' ���������" '���������-.������������������/'  Then Sir "Miles hnd received some  Information from this young man?  Certainly, he had. Mr, Tritton met.  him earlier in the afternoon and gave  hliii the Information-in person,  A murmur.of" excitement ran round  the room, nnd the coroner, with a  withering look at. the crowd, of eager  ncii and women, said sternly���������  Silence, If you please. Can you  give us the gist of the communication  made hy Mr. Tritton to Sir Miles,  Lady HcrncHloy?  Mr. Tritton told my husband that,  he had found a letter wrllten by IiIh  mother, n lPlt.er stating that, his  father was George lleniosloy. a son  of the Into Sir George,  This information.would nffect youi  husband's claim lo the estate,  U would deprive him of the estate, [  Doioitfy answered; my hu&bund only  inherited  because his  cousin Qeorgo  was supposed io have died leaving no  heir.  Was Sir Miles very much troubled  by iho information?  Very much troubled, chiefly because  of the way lu which the change iu his  I'ort unes would affect me.  Then, when he went to the Home  Farm in the afternoon he was greatly  upset.  Ves.  JJad he his slick with hlm~a black  ebony stick with a silver handle?  ���������'"������  , Yes.  This is the stick? The coroner lifted a stick from the table and handed  it to Dorothy,. who glanced shudder-  ingly at tho dark stains upon it.  Yes, she answered, this is my husband's stick. His Initials are on the  handle.  Thank you, that will do. The coroner's voice was still very gentle, aiU  as Dorothy sat down beside Clare his  eyes still rested for a moment upou  her beautiful face. ..-.,,���������  The remaining evidence was merely ii repetition of what hud been given  at tbo opening of the inquest, and  although Dorothy heard the words  spoken by tho witnesses, she was  only vaguely aware of their'purport;  ln her brain were swinging to and fix  all the bewildering thoughts which  had been there ever since Miles arrest. She was as sure that iv r  husband was not guilty of tritton's  murder as she was sure. that, she ii;\-  se'f had not committed it; but it was  evident, to her, as to the rest, of the  world that a web of suspicious circumstances was being woven around  Miles, the tnreads of wh&h woull h-s  very hard to disentangle. Clare's companionship was an infinite boon to h''r  in this time of anxiety, and'the lite.i  cloudv,that had arisen between th?  .'ri'endB on Dorothy's marriage hud  been completely swept away by rh ?  overshadowing trouble. Although  Clare liad found it difficult to forg.ve  Dorothy for, as she supposed, having  been bribed by Miles Hernesley's title  ani wealth to throw over Oliver-D, iu--  court, she was too truly fond of her  friend and too real a helper to allow  any thoughts of the past to interfere  with the help"ne������(<?d in the present.  The two friends had tacitly avoidod  any refcerice to Oliver, and Claro,  by virtue of her old friendship an I  her knowledge as. a. hospital.;'-'. nuAic'  uriI* contrived to fend off from Dov-  cthy a visit from her'parents. ;~  Mrs. Carstairs had written at length  to say how glafl she and her husb uid  would he to spend this time of suspense and anxiety,, at Mansmere, but  Clare, remembering, well howi much'  Dorothy's father and mother had made  her suffer,, when she was their sole  mainstay, wrote them a tactful letter  explaining at length the inadvisab'ility  of their coming just how to the  -Grange. .    - ;  ;���������   ��������� _���������___.���������������������������'������������������.'; - '-; ,':  THE KAISER'S VENTURES  \  A Farm in Africa and a Big Steamship  Line,   ������..  *,  The German Emperor has Just  bought two sheep farms in German  South-wost Africa for ������4,800, The  export of wool is at present email, but  it. is believed that in the courso ot  timo thia will become a valuable,  source of income to the colonists, and  the Kaiser desires to encourage this  branch of colonial activity.  In choosing the farms his Majesty acted on tho advice of Herr Heck-  el, a gentleman attached to. the -Imperial Court, who ' Is'visiting"his  brother's ranch near Wlmihoek.  ��������� In acquiring two farms in South  Africa the German Emperor is finding  further outlet for those business  qualities Which, had he been born  to commerce instead of a, throne,  would havo assuredly have" won for  the Kaiser a high , position among  merchant princes; It may not bo  generally known that tho Kaiser  is already the owner of a porcelain  and tile factory at Cadinen, in East  Prussia  This commercial venture has proven very successful owing- to the  Kaiser's active participation in the  management. No detail has proven  too ^insignificant for him to master,  and the Emperor Is not above recommending personally his own  wares and finding new markets for  the'Cadinen products, ���������  These wares are on sale at a shop  in Berlin called "The Royal Hohen-  zollerh stores," and at one time It  was his Majesty's custom,to pay visits of inspection to houses and build-,  lngs where the Cadinen tiles had  been used.  ' >  The Emperor is n keen agriculturist and all the latest practical developments of this important science  finds illustrations on the farms which  form an important part of the royal  estate in Silesia. : Hii.Majesty is also financially interested in the Hamburg-American Line and almost ini"  variably attends the launches of new  liners from the Vulkan yard. One  of these, the I.mperator, is to take  water this month, and the German  Emperor has again signified his intention of being present. "  THE ART OF FELTING.  .it  The strain would be too much for  you, dear Mrs'; Carstairs, she wrote,  and whilst the anxiety about Sir Miles  lasts, I am sure you would not find  the Grange a very pleasant place, nor  would it be good for you and Mr. Carstairs: Dorothy is" so fully occupied  and hei' thoughts are so entirely with  her husband, that 1 think it would be  better to postpone your visit till a  happier time.  Mrs. Carstairs tdok the letter as a  tribute to her own graceful invalidism, which was the chief occupation  of her existence, and ever afterwards  regarded Clare Bevan as a model of  tact and consideration,  So much more thctl'ul than poor  dear Dorothy, she was wont to say.  Clare glanced at her friend, as they  sat. side by side In the hot,' crowded  roon\, and at sight of fho fair face  and serene eyes it flashed through her  mind to wonder how she would he  feeling if she were in Dorothy's place  and if���������another man were accused of  the murder. Oliver's dark face rose  before her Inward vision, his restless  troubled eyes seemed' lo look into  hers, the memory of their last  strange talk at Waterloo station,  haunted her llko a nightmare. Would  she bo able to sit with such serene  certainty of her husband's innocence  us Doiothy waa sitting, If���������If���������Oliver  woro the accused, and she his Wife?  Or would those nameless, dreadful  suspicions, which against her will had  pressor, themselves upon linr, mnke  every moment it fresh torture? Like  Dorothy, uhoo lost tho thread of tho  evidence, conscious only of quest Ion  and answer thut continued with ceaseless monotony, until the Coroner's  voice, raised rather sharply, recalled  her wandering attention.  Walt a minute, you must repent'  Unit answer, please. You were asked whether you had seen I .inly  HcrnoHlcy go hack across the park on  the evening of Monday hint?  And I wi Iil,'n ninn'n gruff tones responded, 1 snld iih 1 did see her go. I  hc������ her leave the wlcltot glite Just  after the gentleman who was there  wllh hir hnd gone nwny,  The gruff tones awoke Dorothy, too,  from her reverie. Hhe leant, forward  wllh r. little gasp, and looked at the  Hpcnlii r, 11 wna John Dawson, the  keeper, who hnd panned along Iho hum  nt the moment wheir she and Oliver  stood hchMe lhe wicket gate, nnd tl  sudden pang of now fenr shot for tho  first time Into her mind. What If  Oliver-- Her heart boat In sickening  throbs. Kile leant forward, nnd looked nl the mnn inleritly, trying In vain  to recall how much of her interview  with   Hvneeouvt   he  eniilrl  have  Wai Developed Long Beforo tho  Weaver Was First Known.  .-Pelt la a. fabric formed without  weaving by taking advantage ot the  tendency of batr and wool to Interlace*  and cling to each other. Antiquarians  Bta.te.that the art of felting was developed long before the weaver was first  known. FeltlDg antedates the Christian era by many centuries.  Authorities state that the felting  quality of hair or wool results from  the natural structure "of the .material.  The-balr-of-roost-anlmats-ls-nodeed-  to be more or less notched or Jagged  on its surrace. This is. tlie moreapparent when an examination of the  material Is made by tho aid of a  microscope. In some animals there  appears to be a set of barbs on the  hnlr, and these barbs are so placed thnt  tbe tip of each points to tbe end of the  hair.  It follows thnt when n number of  hairs are pressed together those Which  lie In the opposite; direction to each  other will interlock wltb tbe barbs of  the hair surface and resist an effort'to  tear them asunder. When the hnlr bas  a nnturnl tendency to curl the interlacing proeesH which Is called felting is  oioro easily accomplished.  Although tbo felting property Is possessed by wool In a special degree,  other animals hove It In their ooverlug.  This Is true of tho gont, ox, tin re, rabbit und beaver.���������New Xork Sun.  MAN  WHO  STOOD   STILL  Half  Shop Stocked With   Goods  , Century Old  There has just died at Aurori, Illinois, Mr, D. W.

"Early one summer be crawled ont of tbo dark bole In wblcb bla mother bad  left tbe egg from wblcb he camo nnd hopped to tbe tlrst stalk of grass ho saw.  "It wasn't a bit too soon, for a sharp eyed robin was watching tbe bole  and would have whisked hltn np to the nest nnd fed bim to ono of bis hungry  nestlings. That la what bad happened to every one of tbo littlo brothers and  sisters who bud come out of the hole before Grasshopper Green. The reason  Mr. Itoblit missed Grnssliopper Green was because be happened just then to  spy ix fat caterpillar which would mako a much more appetizing meal.

"When Grasshopper Green bud wriggled Ills wny out of tbe skin nnd  stood fiinulng tils wings ln the sunshine, he found out something odd. By  rubbing the right wing over tbe left ono bu could make what seemed to bim  very delightful music. Like the locust aud the crickets, bis cousins, be curried n violin on his back. ..

They seek merely sufficient nuts, fruits' and other edible growths to keep them- alive.  The Kubus wage very little warfare upon the small amount of animal  life Jn their silent and somber land.  The* only notion he could get from  them of, a difference between a live  and b dead person was that the dead  do not breathe.- lie Infers' that they  aro Immeasurably inferior to tho  paleolithic man of Europe,.who fashioned tools and hunted big game  with his Mint-tipped arrow and 'knife.

Such a sufferer waa Mrs. Wiilinm Sullivan, Main Rivor, N.B., who says: "I  am writing to acknowledge the groat  good I received through Dr^WUliams'  Pink Pills. After my baby was horn  last summer I was so run down that  llfo was really a burden. I had to  drag myself about to do my housework, and every moment was ono of  trial. If I went upstairs I would be  breathles's and tired out, and my  heart would palpitate violently, and  would have a feeling as though I was  smothering". My appetlto was pobr,  and my baby was suffering from my  weakness. I was advised to try Dr.  Williams' Pink.. Pills and got six  boxes, and beforo they were all quite  used I was liko a different woman.  My appetite returned; I regained my  strength, and the work about the  house no longer bothered me. As  the result of my experience I would  strongly urge all weak women and  nursing mothers to use Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills.  There Is no woman, no matter what  her station In life, who will not enjoy  better health If she occasionally fortifies her blc.od through the use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.

But St Helena ia  1,400 miles nearer a continent than is  Tristan d'Acunha.

It Is a rocky and cliff girt littlo Isle,  with a solitary mountain 1,000 feet  high rearing Itself from the midst  Yet on this lonely speck of rocfc and  earth there lives a community seemingly happy ln their Isolation from all  the rest of the world. They are farmers, cat tio misers and shepherds. In  the valleys of the Island are fertile  fields, where potatoes mainly are  grown. The food of tho people consists  for the most part of beef, mutton,  fowls, potatoes and fish.  Tristan used formerly to produce!  many fruits and vegetables which can  no longer bo grown there. The reason  of this Is that tbe Island for a long  tlmo was overrun by rats which escaped from a ship that anchored there  and which the people have been unable, It Is said, ever entirely to exterminate.���������Harper's Weekly. /  A FORTRESS OF THORNS.

Near the  trunk of the, tree "is built a dome  shaped nest about a foot In height  The sides of this nest are all Inter-  woven with thorns.  Next a covered passageway Is built  from tho nest to the end of the platform ln as crooked^ a manner as possible.

THE GRAIN COMBINE  -   *  '������������������* i  Past and Present  ..  -,  .mm.   ^ "���������        A  Perseverance and determination, are  admirable qualities provided they  are exercised ln a good cause, N but  when theso virtues are pro3tltutea to  minister to selfishness they are dangerous to the commonwealth and must  be resisted with equal perseverance  and determination.        ~  This is the situation in Northwestern Canada today. On one hand  stands a thoroughly united band-of  grain dealers, and on the other hand  there are the farmers, tho producers  of the country., The grain mon are  using every means in their power to  exploit the farmers.  The history of the grain trade ln  tho West is one of a continual struggle by the grain producers for fair  treatment nt the hands of the grain  dealers. The struggle dates back to  the early eighties when tho first frosted grain was put on tho market. The  grain men refused to buy the damaged wheat and caused much suffering all through the southern parts  of Manitoba, Not only farmers, but  merchants- as well were brought to  the brliijc of bankruptcy. Tho grain  men at';that time sought to reduco  tho' price' of wheat to the lowest  level. Then the farmers met and  made arrangements to ship their own  grain to the Eastern dealers. The  C.P.R. aided them by arranging to  have the grain shipped through to  Sarnia where it was disposed of. As  a result every bushel offered was sold  at fair prices. As soon as the, western grain dealers saw that tlie farmers had found a'way to dispose of  their crop, they, .were quite willing to  get into the market too-  This is a fair'.'sample of the tactics  of the grain men. They are "determined to control the" grain trade of  the West. Their latest scheme Is  the sample market. Should they get  that, they will again control the sale  of wheat.'  A sample market in Winnipeg Is  asked for, As a justification, the  sample market in-Minneapolis is quoted. But the conditions are not the  same iu these two places.. In the  first place, there are a great many  more railways running into Minneapolis than into Winnipeg, therefore  the work of re-shipping the cars  after the ^ grain is -sold Is  spread among more companies and  consequently the cars are moved more  'quickly.-., Then, owing tb the big  mills, located 'in Minneapolis, over  seventy Per cent, of .the- wheat.-, received in that city is milled there,  while not more than four per cent of  the wheat .taken into Winnipeg is  jnilledl^Uthat-pointT-and-the-remain--  der is shipped on.  Another claim made In favor of a  sample market is that the farmers  will receive a-better'price, for-their  grain. The plea, put forth; is that  a carload of grain that -^oiild just  miss grading No. 1, has under the present system to be graded No. 2,  whereas if a sample market were in  effect, that carload of grain would  bring one or two cents per bushel-  over the price of No. 2, and by mixing  it with a carload that wns-a littlo over  No. 3 would make two carloads of No.  2.- , :���������-��������� .-'���������..     '..,    '  But experience proves Its fallacy.  We hnd grain mixing practised openly  for years, hut no one except the grain  dealer gained by it. A sample  market would .kill-competition as tho  men who operate it are the same  mon who every dny until recently,  named the prlco to bo paid for wheat,  at every buying point. In the Western.!  provinces, and by nn agroomont  amongst themselves would .name- the  price to lie paid on Iho sample market. You cannot'expect''-'to* gather  grapes from thorns or figs from thistles.  Thero Is nt present n grain hoard  thai meets every fall 'and docldos on  tlio grades. If thoy do their duly  properly there ia no need whatever  for mixing, nnd at any rote experience  has taught, that the farmers would  never obtain the benefit of fho'iiilxing,  Another important fact. Is thnt tho  mixing of grain will certainly insult  In lowering-the standard of Western  Canadian wheat In Croat Britain, who  Is our chief buyer.  We notleo In Iho dally pnpors (lie  Minister of Trade nnd Commerce, at  Ottawa, hns given notleo of the Intention of th?" government to establish sample markoN before the crop  of 1AK1 is put on llio markets, Thero  Is therefore no time lo lie hjst. hy  Western farmers nnd-others interested In fair piny being given to them,  In Inking slops to prevent the grain  trade being handed over lo men who  have proven Iherfisolvpa utterly unworthy of confidence.  ^-3*v?<r*  jmjt\^  N*  kN5S5ST  ������vV J-  XT'  ���������> Tfr'vr'W* ���������xe,mj*t^ra*.\**  M  t^tatMt.-- ,<"**��������� t-���������%*-*W** -T-r.'vr-%T������ ���������*���������!���������?****������������������ *  Esmwrnm  a  s  te  ������*������*���������  i������*:'  ���������*,WJW���������;.:.J.V*-'  It  THE BUGABOO OP BAKE DAY  MAKES LIFE DREARY IN MANY A HOME  -%a  The groat bulk of home baking ia no longer necessary.

One of the Most Remarkable Changes  V    of Diet on Record  Ono of the most remarkable  changes of aiet on record was that of  the kea, or mountain parrot of New  Zealand. Originally a vegetarian, it  suddenly took to killing sheep and  lambs, devouring certain tit-bits to  which it had taken a liking and leaving the rest of the carcase untouched.  Owing to these ravages the flock-owners and the Government have been  waging a war of extermination  against the keas that are interfering  with the human liking for fleshy food.  Even the sheep at the Antipodes  have "developed the carnlverous habit," as a Melbourne paper puts it.  Theyhave"takeirto'atfa"cking'"and"eat-"  lng each other as well as rabbit's,  whicli are still very numerous in Australia in spite ot the prodigious  quantities o������ them that are every year  trapped, tinned' and exported. So  fa;t the phenomenon of the carnlverous sheep has not been noticed outside tha southern district of New  South Wales, but the news will doubt-  lelss soon spread- Ono paper thinks  It posslblo that Australia may evolve  a "wild man-eating meriTTo" that will  provide good sport for big-garao hunt-  era.

Mistakes In Handling ths Flock That1  Tend to Cut Profits.  In the management of a flock ot  sheep there nre several mistakes usually mado, nmong which mny be,mentioned, Brat, the temptation to turn  theuKout too early In the spring with  the thought of snvlug feed, snys ty\ II.  Underwood. If they nre turued on  the regular pasture they will get, the  start of It and fall to obtain lhe sustenance they should from It tbe rest  of the season, whereas If it hud been  allowed to get n sufficient slnrt It  would served them much better later  In the season.  If the pasture Is a field to be plowed I feel quite' sure the extra vegetable matter thnt would be turned un-.  der if left, rather than to have It pns-.  lured off. Is worth much more to the  land than to the sheep, ln any event,  this soft, watery grass, while relished  by the sheep, hns little nourishment in  It. It fills, but docs not feed. The ani  tnnls,will get to scouring tiffo* lose llesh.  while It will tnke more and better feed  to put them back In good condition.  -  Another mistake Is to shear tho  sheep, as the custom was, ln June. Liy  all means shear before they go'to pasture. If tbey are put on grass wllh the  wool on, tbe looseness of tbe bowels,  ilwnys following a change from dry to  green feed, will soli much of their  "wool~about~the-hlndcr-purtsr-whlch-ls-  a loss, fpr It will cost as much to wash  It out ns It will bring. >  The old talk about the gain, from accumulation of oil In warm weather ts  aonsiense,   If the weather is at nil wet  THE COUNTERSIGN. -  Ns One but Mr, Hennessy Wiil Draw  Her Deposit.

Isn't  this u safe plnco to leavo it?"  "Certainly, nuidtim, but you may  chitngo your mind about leaving It  here."  "Me mind is mado up.".  This wus partly ou the level and  partly a stall, as Mrs. Hennessy could'  not write. She admitted tbis fact  ���������grudgingly and became a bit wrathful  thut thero should be so much trouble  over tbo simple matter of transferring  her money from a sock* to.a strong  box.\  - The cashier took a new tack.  "Well, Mrs. Hennessy," he said,  "now" that you have Indicated that you  cannot sign a check nnd that you are  not going to give anybody the power  of attorney (the phrase was Irritating)  we shall have to agree iipou a pass  AYord."  "What's that?"  "Why, somo word or phrase by which  you can Identify yourself ln ense you  want to muke n withdrawal. While I  know you, I might die und somebody  else must know you."
