Rumors of .another Apache uprising  were growinp- stronscer eiu'li day. Then  Payson was successful a ml therefore,  despised by. loss fortunate men ever  ���������eager for a quarrel.  After a moment's thought Sage-  orusli Mushed (iniuc ms fears and  brightened' up his comrades with tbe  remark: "Mebbe he rid < over to Florence station to get a present for Miss  Echo. He said somethln' about get-  tin' an articUle from Kansas City."  "Mebbe so." agreed, Allen, eager to  cast out any forebodings. "It's time,"  be continued, "he wuz tun-in' up if  this weddin's to be pulled uff by the  clock."   ,'.������������������-.  "lias the sky pilot got  here yet?"  'asked Sagebrush.  "No," replied Allen. "He's started.  though. There's one thing sai'tin���������we  can't lighten up the cinches till the  bridegroom gits here."  The absence of .Jack Payson and the  failure of "the. minister to arrive aroused the������������������ suspicions of Sagebrush. Coming closer to Allen, he smiled knowingly and. speaking in a confidential  tone, asked:  "Say. .Jim. they ain't figgerin' on git-  tin' away on the sly-like, are they?"    ,  Show Low interrupted with the explanation, "You see. we're goin' to decorate the wagon some."  The suggestion that any one connected with Allen Hacienda would  ride in anything on wheels except the  driver of the chuck wagon on the  round-up aroused the indignation of  the old cattleman. For him the only  use to which a wheeled vehicle drawn  by a horse should be put was to haul  materials that could not be packed ou  a horse.  "They ain't usin' any wagon!" he  fairly shouted.    "They__r___goin'  away  in the leather."  The idea of carrying out tne traditions of the horse in Pinal county even  to a wedding journey tickled the boys  Immensely.  Slapping one another on the back  and nodding their heads in approbation, thoy shouted: "That's the ticket!  Hooray!"  "This ain't no New York Idea, where  the bride an' groom hits the life trail  In a hired hack!" cried Fresno.  Allen's feelings apparently were not  yet fully soothed. Turning to Sagebrush, lie said: "Wheels don't go in my  family. Why. her ma-an' mo were  married on hossbuck. " The preacher  had to make a hurry job of it, but l.t  took."  "Hush, now." wnu Parenthesis* awed  comment.  "For her pop was n-ohasln' us nn'  kcpt*lt up for twenty miles after the  parson Riild 'Amen,'"  ;,-D1(l he ketch you?" nsked Fresno,  ���������with great seriousness.  "He sure did," answered Allen, with  h twinkle In his eye, "nn' (hanked me  for lnkln''.Josephine off his hands."  The boys laughed. The joke was  upon themselves, as they had expected to hear a romantic story of earlier  dnya.  When tho laughter hnd subsided  Show Low suggested, "If wc can'l decorate the wagon, let's put some (lxln's  on the ponies,"  Tho proposal was received with more  whoops, shinning and ylpplng, They  waltzed about the smiling rancher.  ���������Thai's whnt!" cried Sagebrush en-  thuHiaHll.n Ily.  Allen grew sarcastic, remarking. "I  reckon you all must have slopped some  time at Ihe wn lor lank."  Itenewed laughter greeted this sally.  "This Ih my lirst weddin'," explained  Baftebnish nil lier apologetically,  "I want to know!" exclnlincd Allen  In nurprlt-o,  "I'm lol 1,1 n' you, I never seed a weddin* la all my life," replied Sagebrush.  n������ seriously ns If he wiin denying a  false iiccnsiitlon nf n serious crime,  "Mother used |o tell me about her'a,  an' I often wlsht I luul been there,"  Fresno slum led wllh amusement, lie  Iind Sagebrush rattled.

Sagebrush grinned in anticipation  of the good times that he knew lay ln  store for him :W: the dance.    ���������  "You're fixed up as if you was the  ma!������ attraction at this event." snld  Allen, looking" Sagebrush over carefully nnd schilling him around on his  heel.

"Hello,  boys!" she shouted, witlrthe fascinating cordiality of the western girl,  wherein the breath of the plains, the  purity of ilie air and the wholesome-  ness of life are embraced in a simple  greeting and the clasp of a hand.  The cowboys took off their hats and  made elaborate bows to the young woman. "Howdy, Miss Polly?" they  cried. '     -  "You sure do look pert." added  Sagebrush with what he considered  his most winning smile, Fresno snick-'  ered and hastily brushed back the hair  from bis forehead.  "Where's Jack?" she asked the two  men,,who at once ranged themselves  one on each side of her. ,  "He did not start with the boys,"  explained Allen. "He'll be along soon-  Polly."  "Well, now, when it comes to lookers, what's the matter with Polly  Hope?" exclaimed Sagebrush slyly.  Glances of admiration .'we're, cast at  the girl, wbo was dressed simply and  plainly in a little white gown which  Mrs. Allen had made for her for the  wedding. Polly's youth, good nature  and ability to take care of herself  made her a favorite on ��������� the ranch.  She had no need of defenders, hut If  an occasion should arise that Polly  required a knight there were a ' score  of guns at her service at; an hour's  notice.  "Looks like a picture from a book,"  said Fresno, hoping.to win back the  ground he had lost by Sagebrush's  openly expressed admiration.  Polly was flattered by the comments  and the glances of the boys, which expressed their approval of her appear-  !ance_moreUoudlvLthaii_spokeji4-w,ords.  She pretended, however, to be;annoyed. "Go 'long,' she said. "Where's  Bud Lane? Didn't you give him his  Invite?"  The boys turned  from  one  to tbe  "Wnat's the news?" she asked as  jhe slowly straightened out her fingers one by oue.  "There's .be-ou   a   killiu'   over   Flor-!  ence way," announced the sheriff, put-*'!  ting on his hat. uud-becoming an offl- j  cer of the law with duty to perform.    I  "Who is the misfortuuate?" asked  Sagebrush ������s they gathered' about  Hoover and listened intently.  Murder  in   Arizona   wns  a   serious  matter   until   punishment   was   meted  out to the slayer or he was freed by  his fellow ci'izcns.    Far from courts  of justice and surrounded by men to  whom death was often merely iin incident, in a career of crime, the settlers   were   forced   to   depend   upon j  themselves to keep peace ou the border.    They  acted  quickly,  but  never  hastily.    Judgment   followed   quickly!  on    conviction.     Their    views    were j  broad, and rarely were their decisions  wrong.-  '"Ole Man' Terrill." replied the  sheriff. "Happened about 10 this  tnortiin'.. Some man caught him aloue  ln the railroad station an' blowed his  head half off."  "Do tell!" was Allen's exclamation.  "Yep." continued the sheriff. "He  must have pulled a gun on the fellow.  He, put up some sort of a light, as the  room is some mussed up."  "Robbery?" queried Polly, with wide  open eyes.  "That's what," nnswered Slim, turning to her. "He had three thousau'  dollars pinned in his vest, county  money for salaries. You know how he  toted his wad around with him. defy-  in' man or the devil to get it a way from  him? Well, some one .who was both  man an' devil was too inuch for him."  "Who found him?"  "I did myself. Went over around  noon after the money. Didn't stop to  go back to town fer a posse. Trail  was already too cold. COuld tell it  was a man that rode a pachi' horse."  His auditors looked at each other,  striving to remember who.-of their acquaintance rode a pacing horse. Sagebrush Charley shook, his head.. "Nobody down this way, 'ceptin', of  course., the boss, rides a pacer. Must  be one of the Lazy K outfit. I reckon."  "Most likely," said the sheriff. "He  struck out south, probably to throw  me off scent. Then befell in.with two  other men. an' this balled me up. 1  lost one of the tracks, but follered the  other two round Sweetwater mesa till  I come where they rode into the river. Of course I couldn't' roller the  trail any farther at that.p'int, so. bein'  as I was near Uncle Jim's. I rode over  fer help to look along both banks an'  pick up the trail wherever it comes  _b,ut-l_of_���������tbe_rive������,_Soj-^  up yer fun, boys, but some o' you  must come along with me. Duty's  duty. I want Sagebrush anyhow, as I  s'pose I can't ask for Jack Payson."  Sagebrush  pulled  a  long  face.   At  other with feigned glances of disgust   any other time he would have jumped  A ROYAL FAVORITE  Ambassador   Reid's   Daughter,  Who Scorned a Title.  CAN OUTSHINE ANY PEERESS.  RALEIGH'S WIFE.  But Is Altogether Indifferent to Society,  Devoting Herself to Her Husband  and Little Boy With . a Zeal That  Charms England's Domestic Queen.  Mrs. John Hubert Ward, the pretty  daughter of the American ambassador to England, the Hon. Wbitelaw  Iteid; ranks easily first among the  American women who have married  Englishmen. It is true that her husband, a younger brother of the Earl of  Dudley, is only un "honorable," and  honorables are thick as hops lu London, but then he is a Ward, the favorite equerry of the late King Eaward  aud so popular with King George and  Queen Mary that he is certain to be  a person of importance in the new  scheme of things. Before Miss Jean  Iteid accepted the Hon. John Hubert  Ward she bad refused scores of devoted noblemen, and rumor said she bad  even turned away one serene highness.   Miss Reid didn't care for titles.  It was at Biarritz that the romance  J)egan. King Edward was staying  there, and so were the Reids. The  Hon. John was in attendance upon the  king, who enjoyed the society of the  American ambassador. While Miss  field's father was engaged with  his  at being slighted by Polly for-an absent one. The otic- sided courtship of  Bud and Polly was known up and  down the valley, and Indefinite postponement of their wedding day was  one of the jests of the two ranches.  "Oh, we sent it on to him nt Florence. He'll git it in time if he ain't  gone to the Lazy K with Ruck McKee." said Sagebrush: then,'turning to  the other cowboys, he added In nn aggrieved tone, "Polly nln't got no eyea  for no one excep' Bud."  Polly stepped to Allen's side and,  laying her bond on his shoulder, snld,  "Ain't I?" Allen patted the girl's  hend. Ho wns very fond of hor, looking upon her ns another daughter.  Polly smiled buck into his fnce nnd  then, with n glance nt the cowboys,  said, ''Say, Uncle Jim, there's some  bottles to be opened."  The invitation was nn Indirect one,  but all knew wlml It: meant and started for the house.  "Root beer," added Polly nilschle-  rously.   "Tho corlis pull awful hard."  Allen glanced at her In feigned  rilarm.  "What do yon wnnt to do���������stampede  the bunch?"  Before she could answer the approach of a horse uttrneted tho attention of the group, ���������    '.'���������  "There's Jack now!" cried Sagebrush In tones which pin Inly, showed  Ills rollof. "No, It ain't," ho added reflectively. "He rode IiIh pacln' maris  ���������in' tliut'n a troltln' horse."  The cry of tli*! rider was heard  quieting IiIh mount. Allen recognized  the voice, "It's Slim Ilouvur." he cried.  Polly chipped her hands and snld  mischievously to Sagebrush: "Now  you'll see ine mnl'ln' googoo eyes to  Komehndy besides Itilil l.niie, 1 ain't  a-golii' to he the only girl lir IMnal  coiuiiy Slim Hoover nln't set .up to,"  "An' Nhled off froin," added Sngo-  brush, a littlo nntl led by Polly's over-  looking him us a subject for'Uhtitikin.

"The Ungodly Cough."  "You never know where he is going to break out next," someone once  said regarding Rev. Ri- J. Campbell,  pastor of the City Temple, who; is  about to visit Canada' on a preaching tour. This person was referring  particularly to kr. Campbell's somewhat unconventional remarks. On  one occasion he addressed his hearers  .upon the timely subject of congregational coughing, and assured them  that there was such a thing as "the  ungodly cough." Then,,again, he one  day stopped his congregation singing that hymn, "0, Beautiful, My  Country," saying that the compilers  of the hymn book had spoilt it by  altering the time. And then,'breaking into song-, he sang the lines aa i  he thought thoy should be written.  The iippliui.se which greeted this musical effort was tremendous. Apparently, however, Mr. Campbell, does not  consider himself to bo the broadmind-  ed man his admirers imagine, for.  when he was asked if he was likely  to stay abroad, lie replied, "I am such  a narrow, bigoted .John Bull that 1  am afraid I couldn't be comfortable  iu auy country1 uut, my own."

E. Green, a British  medical student. The theory is based  on the'resemblance of animal cancers to plant tumors , aiid supposes-  that the undiscovered organism of  animal cancers must be very similar  to Plasmodiophora brassical, the cause  of plant cancer. Sulphurous substances specially favor the growth ol  the plant parasite, while calcium and  copper tend to. destroy it, As this-  would suggest, human cancer is most  common in chimney sweeps, brewers and furriers, who are most exposed  to sulphur vapors, and is rarest in,  tanners, copper workers and paper-  makers, whose occupations bring contact with copper or lime. The house*  and districts that have most cancer,  moreover, are those where sulphur  dioxide is present in the air-���������that is,  whero coal is burned and chimney  draft and ventilation, are imperfect.  A   Bishop  on   Beer   Barrels.

Dr. Percival is something ot  a wit. Ono day ho-. was passing  through a town noted for its beer, and  ho observed many signs of browing  and also of mourning, "Why is that  flag half-mast highr"' ho inquired. He  was told that somonno well known  in tho town wns dead. "Ah, how  sod," he observed; "1 observe that  oven th* barrels aro in tiers,"  The  Money  Lender  In  Rhodesia.

'IV the old Sikh, with, his family'  tradition of war, the lure of youns.  Bengal has as yet little attraction,  "Thu English beat us, and ive and  they beat 'the Poorbeahs; now who','are  the Bengalis that they should preach  to men of the sword? V>c know our  masters, with whom we share tne  army."  So when he talked it ovor with me  a-i au old friend, the spirit-,of the  Khalsa, which irom a sect had be-'  come a soldiery of the Wallenstein  type, rung out ruthless, forgetting the  plough and the prize seed-corn.  "Pull, Bengal!" quoth lie; "if the  English leave the country we would  see to it'tout there: be neithera merchant nor a virgin left in Bengal in  a month." '.From which saying, again,  1 saw why India needs the English,  chatter the H.A.'s-never so wisely.  The good English must keep the peace  for the millions wlio cannot keep it  for themselves .  It was only a year ago that I chatted with some Afghan friends settled  within the British border for at least  fifty years before that same border  became aritish.  ., "What," 1 asked, "would you do if  the Sirkar left the land?"  My friend was a civil officer of a  subdistriet who helped the English  magistrate preach trade and agriculture; with him was1 his younger brother, a'resalder in the 15th Cavalry;  a third brother was also in the same  regiment. "Ho! ho! Sahib," laughed he. "What would we.do, eh? 1 will  tell you. Afzul here, and young Wali  Dad, who is with his regiment, wf*  should raise fifty of our own arid our  fathers' retainers, Ali'zais and Ganda-  purs, and we should ride straight for  Bickaneer."  "Ah," said I, in my ignorance,  "why for Bickaneer?"  "Because," said my friend the benevolent magistrate, "in Bickanee)* city  all the rich Hindu merchants keep  their treasure."  "Yes, indeed," said the cavalry  brother, "and tjie Hindu banniah women are the finest in India."  And once again 1 saw clear that a  country uf conflicting races and religions needs a rule that has at its back  the drawn sword and the galloper  gun.���������From The Keys of all the  Creeds,  in The Cornhill  Magazine.

HOW TO OBTAIN  A GOOD COLOR  Ladder as a Pit Boy.  The famous artiste's recent appeal  on behalf of the pit ponies recalls the  fact that he started life as a pit boy  and for years worked as a miner. He  afterwards eked out a precarious livelihood by appearing at small local  -concerts,_siug-song8,_and~the~.like-in.  his native Scotland. Between now  and then, with a rapidity hardly  equalled, Lauder has made himself  a name to conjure with in the music-  hall world. With two or three performances every night, not to speak  of royalties on his enormously popular songs, he now makes an income  which a prosperous barrister might  envy; but, ''so far as I am concerned,"-he once, declared, "I find that  money makes no difference whatever,  save that when I. want a thing I can  walk into a shop and get it. It's a  pleasant difference, 1 grant you;, but  ��������� a. man's a man for a' that'."  British Military Bulls.  Some queer, quaint efforts, at  composition have been made by  British officers. A certain major ordained this: "Reveille will be at 3.30  a.m. The brigudo will parade at 4  a.m. The brigade will move at 4.15  a.m, The sun will rise at 5 a.m."  It was during the guerrilla war of  1901-2, after the building of the block-  houses, that it became necessary to  check the habit of the men of sleep,  ing outside the blockhouses for the  mike of coolness and comfort. A certain staff oflicer thereupon issued the  following quaint order: "No one ia  permitted to sleep outside tho blockhouses except the sentries." Though  the intention of this order is clear,  its phraseology is not, "Men on outpost, duty are forbidden to strilto  mutches on the sky line."���������London  Standard.

You are pule, and weak because you  haven't enough hlood and you won't  be better until your blood supply is  increased. You should not lose any  time in increasing your blood supply,  for ,'people "who negleet anaemia, often .-slip "into a deadly decline. When  you have increased your blood supply you can reasonably expect, to  have a good color, to have lost that  tired, breathless feeling-, to have,, a  goorl appetite and get good nourishment from your food. Now the only  quick a;id always effective way to get  a supply of new, rich, red blood is to  take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Every  dose helps to make now blood, and  this new blood coursing through the  veins, brings health and strength to  every organ and every part of the  body, milking weak, ailing people,  bright, active and strong. This has  been proved in thousands of cases of  which the. case of Mrs. George Clark,  Abottsford, B. C, is a fair sample.  Mrs. Clark says: "After spending  two years and six months-in a hospital training for a nurse, I began to  fail in health, was very pale and the  least exertion would leave me out of  bre'ath. ..After graduating I caine to  British Columbia to take up my profession as a private nurse. The first  case I took I found I was not able  to go on with my work. Doctors'  tonics failed me. and acting on my  own judgment I purchased a supply  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Before I  had finished them I was really sur-.  prised at the result. The color came  back to my face. 1 gained in strength  and by 'the time I had used nine  boxes I was hack ,at my work as a  nurse. I have since married,''������������������hut  still have mv friendly feeling for Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.''  __Sold_bv all medicine dealers or by  mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes  for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams'  Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

Canadian    Manufacturer    Does  Impose on the Duties  An erroneous impression exists in  tho minds of many, Western people,  that the. manufacturer of Canada  takes advantage of the tariff by raising his selling price by the, full  (iniount of the duty, with which ho  it protected from foreign competition.  Facts show that the Canadian niiinu-  fiicturer docs not, anil could not safely, do such a thing. The home innnu-  f'neturer, to-day, does seven times ns  much business in Canada ns the foreign manufacturer. Would the fnctor.  ie.s of Cnnnrln he able to secure that  much more business thnn the keen  foreign competitor if prices were so  inflated? No they would not nnd  the main purpose of the tariff is not  to rob, but to protect.

The "green water" of the Nile H'  quite a different thing from the green  water of the ocean, says the Scientific  American.  About April 15 the Nile begins' its  annual rise, and a month later the  effect is felt at Khartoum. A very  ������������������urious phenomenon accompanies  this increase in the appearance of  the "green water." ,  For a long time it was believed that  lhe color came from the swamps of  the, upper Nile, lying isolated and  sta<rnnnt under the tropical sun and  polluting the waters with decaying  vegetable matter. With the spring  rise this fetid water was supposed to  he swept into the, streams to make its  Hpnonrance in Egypt.  ; Within recent times, however, thia  theory has been abandoned. Now we  are advised the gr-en water is caused  by the .''presence of innumerable mini-  hers of microscopic algae, offensivo  to the taste and smell. They originate.away up in the tributaries and  are carried'to the Nile, where under  the hot sun and in the clear water  they increase with amazing rapidity,  forming columns from 250 miles to  500:miles in length.  Tlu> weeds continue to grow, die  and decay until the turbid flood waters put them to an end, for they can-  not exist except in clear water.  Offensive as, in some respects, the  green water is, it is hailed  with delight   by   the    Egyptians,   since   its  appearance   :'--   a.   sign   of   the   real.

Surprising as the revelation, have  been whicli were made in sortie of the  'recent el -tion petitions, they scarcely compare with the old days beforo  such a keen eye was kept on the  financial disbursements of those who  sought farliamentary honors.  So long ago as 1826, for example,  cabbages were sold at, Sudbury during the general election at the rato  of $50 for four, whilst a plate of gooseberries, such as one could buy nowadays for a penny, woro sold for $125,  the vendors, of course, being voters,  Ard at Great Marlow an elector was  given the hint that he could buy u  sow and nino young pigs for a penny.  Uo bought them, too.  A quarter of a century later things  had not improved, for we find that a  voter would he ushered into tho presence of a certain agent, hy whom ho  would he asked, "Well, how do you  do to-day?" at the same time holding  up three lingers to signify that lie wan  tn receive $15, If the elector wore dis.  satisfied, ho would roply that he wai  uot vory woll, and promptly up would  go tho agent's fingers, showing that  lie was to rooulvo $25, And while ha  looked out of thu window the money  would be placed on the table, and ho  would turn and pick It up and than  take his doparturo.

There f.ill be many important points  on which the union Parliament' will  halve to come to 4 decision, but perhaps it will be agreed tha't the most,  vital of all South Africiin questions,  and the one needing the e'a'rliestand  soundest solution, is that of the'Native  Policy,  '  The native territories, large in extent and with .rapidly growing popula- o  tions, may within a few years become  part and parcel of the Union of South  Africa, and some definite scheme ior  the future governing of these great  populous territories will have to be de-i  vised; one which will give the native--  no handle with which to shake the  confidence of the outside world in the  wisdom' and integrity of the Union  Government, while at the same time it  'appeases'.'the established feelings of  the dominant color.

With the great advancement ot  education among the natives, with the  recognized striving for book learning  which they evince, and above all with  the example of the whites before them,  it is very natural that they should  move for- the possession, of some sort  of political, franchise.  In what manner' is it possible to  grant, with benefit to the natives aiid  at the same time with; dignity to the  whites,  this  rational  demand?   ;".���������.''.'.-���������'  Under existing circumstances the.  position is rou_;..iy: this: In the Cape  Province natives may attain a vote  under more or less easy qualifications;  iii tho Transvaal and Orange River  Colojiy they have no vote. In Natal  the qualifications is so stringent that  it is practically prohibitive. The Basu-  tos hold Pitsos, wliich are assemblies  of chiefs or headmen, in.which their  tribal affairs are discussed. The Swaz-  is and Zulus have nothing resembling either the Parliament ot the white  man or the Pitso of the Basuto.  Thousands of natives are with extraordinary diligence acquiring knowledge; already hundreds have been sent  over to America to undergo a course  of education there, and thu3 the white  of South Africa must be prepared  shortly for a strong display of native  educational results, terminating ih a  well-founded cry for political rights.

(home, (for this was the only home she

She told mo 'when we grew confidential
that she had been lu lier present position

yeara. and that the chest of drawers,,
had been put there nt .her special request��� thus explaining her monopoly of
its -accommodation, Within n few weeks,
however, after this conversation, tho
walls and lloor were re-covered and
tlie celling whitewashed, I was very
fortunate In hiivlni* n brighter room for
tho rest of my stay, although the color
scheme of the new decora tions left much
to be desired.
There were about twelve bedrooms on
my corridor, several of which looked
down on back yards crowded with packing cases, straw, etc.   The rooms above

CARRYING out the "motif* of this

for my weekly familiar talk, an

American girl now living in England,
In a private lnclosure giving lier
name and address and .other particu-r
Jars not. meant for publication, our
delightful correspondent says:
"I read with great pleasure the letter tio.n ���Justiciu." > Vou invite criticism from your, readers upon the subject she sets forth. '

With tills preamble, I leave lier to
tell a. story I regret to have kept back
, longer than my inclination moved me
to Uo.   The delay was unavoidable. .
ABOUT   ten   years   ago   1   arrived  ln
������.*����� this country,  with  the rest of my
".-family, after a sojourn of many years
Mn  the United "States,   it was necessary   for  me  to  earn  my  own  living,
and, my  only, assets  comprised ' several   years'   experience   of   store   life  ���
*Jn   various   departments   of   various
drygoods  houses  in  Philadelphia.
The only possible opening for me,
therefore, lay in what is here termed
the "drapery.- business," After many
weeks of futile inquiry- at different
drapery establishments, and a lam-
���ntablo lack of advertisements to
answer, I managed to convince an
extremely gentle-looking little head
of a department- that tho said department had need of me. Having
brought matters to"this happy crisis,
tho question of remuneration enmo
"flow much1 salary do you require?"
he nsked,  rather  timidly,
���"Well," I replied cautiously, "of
course I should like ns much as you'
will give mo, I had $8 n week In
Aiin'rlca, That is about S3 shilling!*,
Riif'-n.'- he gasped���"of course I
know that Is more than I Hhnll re-
ceive in this country. Do you think
a pound a week too mucn?"
"A pound n week! n pound n week!"
ho exclaimed, looking upon me with
indignant'oycH, 1 renlly thought i\t
the moment I had lout nil ohnneo of
employment there, "I could not think
,of such a wage. I will give yon 25
pounds n year, and of course you will
Wo   In."
It was how my turn to look bewildered. Strange to say, I bad never even
heard of tho llvlng-ln system, although
It Is practiced by most of, the largo
drapery concerns In every town liuEngland.
"LlVO 111?" I repented, confusedly,
"Yea, live In, of cmirpc-llvo |n Iho

too, livo In���thnt Is, with very few ex-
ceptlons-iuid ao far as I nm concerned

"Oh, I Ahull b* very pleased to do ho,"
1 hastened to miy.. "Pardon my up-

"You enn conimonco on Tuesday,  Come

climbed eighty-eight steps at the back
part of tho building, narrow, dirty
stairs, which turned and doubled, leading to other places, storerooms, etc. ,1
had traversed'narrow, barren corridors
and passed doors innumerable.   ��� ���   '
To my continued knocking the door
before me'opened, revealing a comfortable, wcll-furnlshed room, with a glowing fire and general air of coolness, but
it shut Immediately behind a disdainful
young woman of about 35, who demanded my busdness. - . ������
After some explanation, I was-conducted up more stairs to my rtom, or
rather our room, for there were three
beds In It, although that night I was
nlone, for one bed had no present occupant, and the occupant or the other was -
away on hei' iinnunl holiday,
1 was very fortunate in having a front
room; fortunate, nlso, that the month
was September, It broke mo in more
grndu.'illy to the many hardships 1 had
to face, ,
You .must'remember that I wns fresh
from tho State*-; that I'or years 1 had
enjoyed warm bedrooms, unlimited hot
water and home life and comforts,
Mv present room was large (about Kix
10 leet) and lofty, Two curtiilnless windows looked out upon the city, This Is
a proverbially snioke-siiilned city, It is
hilly, also, nnd the roofs of lhe,shops
and houses rose and fell like the waves
of a great blnck ocean as fiir iih the eye
could reach, An unlovely view on a
lino dny, but on n wet or cloudy one,
when iho smoke hung thickly over the
city���well, on such days the prospect,
was not one to linger over. And yet
there Is not In all ICnglnnd n city with
lovelier suburbs. Quaint, sleepy villages; ancient historic churches; wood
nnd forest; a score of places well known
to you In Scott's novels���nil are within a
short distance of this snioke-stiiliicd
town. Thev wero not within my view as
I looked from the window on thnt nu-
tiimn evening, And when r, left alone,
turned to survey iny new home, 1 saw���
a dingy room, furnished with absolute
necessities; the walls covered with n,
hideous paper, the celling, once white-
wni-'licd, now a dirty gray; an extremely
ancient fireplace, uulltles** of lire; three

us  were   occupied   by   men,   and   wero
'���reached   by   another, staircase   at   the
other end of the house. '    '..
Another group of-rooms for girls was
also reached by a different route, indeed,--It,wus quite a journey to go there
from my room, and our only bathroom
���was In the same direction, ���
Midway between was ,our,slttln_ room,
oi  very  spacious   apartment,   furnished
with the same simplicity and economy
as tho bedrooms.   In one corner stood
the. only luxury, a piano,'subserlbod for
and belonging to the girls themselves,
having been nald for on the installment
.ysU'in,    m  the  wintertime  there  was
a lire In this room all day, and the light-.
lng arrangement was good,  generally.
Our "bedrooms were very mengerly liglu- *
ed by electricity,    When we wished to
do  any  sewing  there  we  used  to  buy"
candles and, use them.
The ..various    corridors    were    loft,
quile     unadorned,    and     were    kept
scrupulously   clean.     Indeed,   If   half  .
the energy which was wasted on, the.
corridors   had  been  expended on  the,
bedrooms,    we   should    have   gained
gireatly   In   comfort,   for   our   rooms
Were   sadly   neglected.    I   used   to   go
home on Sa.tu.rday evening, returning
very   early   on   Monday 'morning;   but
my     roommate     wis     compelled     to
spend   her  (Sundays  here,  and  1  generally   left   her  'on   Saturday   evening,
1 sweeping  and  dusting   the   room,   to
make It habitable for the next day.
There was no. system = of warming
the living quarters except by the,
old-fashioned fireplaces, and these
were only used in the bedrooms In
cases of serious illness, ns they made
much extra work far 'the'molds. I
have known frequently when we
bave hnd to break the tee in the ���
water-pitchers to get at the wator
1 to wash with In the mornings. Can
you imagine dressing In a room at
)his  temperature?
We were allowed a pitcher of hot
'voter between 9 and, 9.30 P. M., .if
we fetched it ourselves from the
kitchen. For the rest of the time we
had to use cold. Had we been allowed hot water In the morning ,we
should" have felt the' bitter . atmosphere less, as English ',bedrooms, are
seldom warmed. But you must 'remember that our bedrooms were
away from iind much" higher than '��� tlib'
warmed  portion  of  the  house.
The lift (elevaitor) was for th? use
of customers, and although we were
not forbidden to use it, we riiUier
dreaded being seen doing so by any
one In authority,' so used the stairs
invariably. ��� I had to climb ninety-
seven steps to rhy room., - *
I will endeavor to describe an
ordinary day. The dressing bell rang
nt 7.SO nnd the breakfast bell at 8
A. M. Breakfast was served, from 8
to 8.30. ���-. '���-. . ���'���'
On mv first morning T went down
to the floor on which were the housekeeper's rooms, our. sitting room, etc.,
and was directed to the'dining room.
It was a long room, with bare wooden
floor and bare walls. Two long tables
. about a vard wide ran the length of. the
room. Thev were covered with white
cloths and had small plates placed at
regular Intervals down each side. Chairs
were ranged along each side of the
tables. At one table were seated a few
voung men,who stared at ine cmiouEiy,
but ln a friendly fashion. Seeing some
girls seated at the other table, 1 made
���my-way-thither; ����� ������-- ���--
.Tlie meat consisted of tea and bread
and butter. ' I was told I might have
coffee If I wished, but It' ��eemed to be
universally shunned, so T took tei.
After this frugal repast we went downstairs to our various departments.
Between 10 and 10.45 we were allowed
twenty minutes to wash our hands, after;
.itock cleaning, etc.. or to make any pur-,
chases !n the shop.
Pinner was served at 1, and, Ut). .re-,
spectively. Half," the staff went when
the 1 o'clock bell rang and the remain-
ing half at 1,3ft, when all those comprising the first batch were supposed, to he
back in* their departments, having
washed, dined and refreshed themselves
generally. The 1.30 diners were of
course, expected to be In their departments at 2 precisely. - -.,
Dinner consisted o/ meat, potatoes and
pudding. Sometimes _we had beef, at
other times mutton. The beef wns generally roasted nnd served either hot or
cold;' but the mutton wns occasional^
boiled. On boiled-mutton days we were
given mutton broth nsn fl-"'t coarse and
the onddlng wns omit'ed. Very often wo
had nn Utrn vegetab'e. The pudd rigs
rang the changes on rice.- sago nn; tap-
-.. InoiTmim puddlnn* nnd a few styles Of
Sniolicd -met.   Ob one memorable dny wo

pudding, but could have a little cheese If
WTheSK'dnv dinner wns like tlmt of
Rntirdny, invnrlably the same the year
round, being cold ronst beef, boiled point oen nnd cold npple tart
Th tbe winter months the shop wns
closed at fl V. M.; i�� tbe summer months
at 7. Tea was always served at r. o dock,
and during the 7 o'clock cloning period
wei were'allowed half im hour. IJuriiiB
the carlier-eloslng period we were allowed llfleen minutes for the men); iind
I can assure you one bus to be fairly
rapid to climb, eighty-eight steps, hav.
tou nnd be buck In m-.r-'*' depnrtnieiil
within'fifteen minutes niter leaving It.
Tho bill of fare nt tentlme was pre-
clselv the same ns that at bieakliist.
Supper, served from 7 o'clock to t.Jli,
coiiMlstcd of bread and butter, cheese
i.n hot or cold milk. The bread wiib
always cut and buttered before It was
placed upon the tables for any meal.
1 beliuve the men received a curtain allowance of beer at supperllnie, though
1 was seldom present,ous I, like most
of the nil's, found the food unsuitable. ,
Tho majority of us used to purchase our
supper, outside and" eat It in our o.vn '
rooms, with a cup of cocoa made.on.tho
sitting-room Ure. On one or two occasions \v�� had cold hem' given us ut
supper. " ������'-'���
For the rest of the evening wo did as
we pleased���sat and read or-sewed in
our-great.sitting room tit Ave were i.teky
enough to get'a-ohalr nenr tho tire), or
wrote our letteru at the table. ���
All fi'iolulne employes were required
to-bo. within doors by 10.30 and all of
the-oilier gender by 11. Girls who desired to be oul later for so.;ie iiaiili'iiliii*
reason (theater, etc.), had to obtain
special permission; but this only extended to 11 o'clock, when the outer
doors were locked i'or the night.
At ,11 o'clock our lights were put out,
and any one who had not liiiisncd un-
dresslng had to do so In the dark.
There was a medical club and a lib ry
In connection 'with lhe place, to which
all i,employei' were compelled to contribute. Indeed, the fees were deducted
trom our monthly salaries, whether or
nut'we .look advantage .-of the benefits,
whicli were as. follows; Two or three
times a week at 11 A, M. the big bell
rang, proclaiming the doctor's presence
upstairs. Any one of us having any
ailment might then consult him. Of.
course, .If ally employe was seriously 111
the doctor's iUtt,'i'dance was assured.
Of ���the library 1 know little. One of
tbe male assistants used to come to our
sitting room once a week,'with'a list,
somewhat shopworn, of its contents.
Those girls who desired then made their
selection, which, if unappropriated at
the time, was brought to them.
The actual situation of that libra, y in
the building Is. to me, to this day, an
unfathomed mystery. 1 never took advantage of it, as 1 spent all my spare
"time In ri'tudy, ,to enable me to obtain
a post ln some profession where the
llvlng-in, system was not enforced���a
spost which happily 1 obtained at the end
of six months.
The living-iii system Is the subject of-
much discussion at. the present time, It
mav have some advantages, but It certainly has many ' disadvantages.", Its
moral side I d:),not wish to discuss; I
saw nothing ...Immoral'during my experience of It; but the fearful monotony
of the life as regards surroundings, food,"
routine, dress���yes, everything���Is intensely depressing. It seems'very hard
that girls who have good homes should,
in many .'cases, be compelled to leave
them ln order to earn a living, and for
those who have no home, amino other
means/of living, tliat they should not'be
able to call one room their very own,
even though It be bare, dimly lighted
and, in winter, bitterly cold. Often, on
winter nights, I have lain awake, unable
to sleep for the unaccustomed cold, and
listened to the rats scampering up and
down the corridor. How frightened I
was lest they shoCild'.flnd: sOrpe. crevice
through which, they, could get into my
room!   What noise' they did make!   A-
man   used   to   come   periodically'   with
ferrets and try to thin them a little.
The men and girls were about equally
divided In numbers In ..Engl sh torw

COMMUNICATIONS  Kditor NHWSi-  Direcfly Reciprocity became a  question, pf practical-politics Mr.  Joseph Chamberlain  asktd   liis  standing   tarift   commission    to  make a special report   upon   it  As Mr Chamberlain is one of th.e  most   prominent, -leaders of the  Unionist party even our Conser  vative friends must,   accept   the  conclusions arrived at, especially  a.s his great desire is to tax Iiri-  tish   fo'id   under his scheme of  Tariff I'eforni.    The report appeared iu his political organ, the  Birmingham    (England)    Daily  Post of March 22nd, 19i'r'.      It  suites, that; 'Ca'nadl^uiider' Rec-i-  piocity-   will  a'dnijt free   to  the  United ''States/"gbbds    to    the  amount of $9,960,000. wl'iilst the  States wiHadinii Canadian goods  free amounting to ������11,000.000.  Qauada already itiiports the w,hole  of the $9,900,000 from the Sa'es  except $1,300,000, of which only  11   per cent comes to her, from  Great Britain.     These figures,  the report says, refers solely   to  the import trade of both couutri* a  and seeing that both   countries  will uuder Reciprocity compeie  011 equal terms, the balance   of  advantage   in   respect, of these  goods will rest with those   who  have the greatest potentialities,  namely, Canada; therefore little  opportunity would '.seem   to   he  given by the agreement for the  United States to capture any 61'  Canada's   imports.      IJut   there  appears to be a large area for au  increase of Canadian importation  to the States, Canada's opportu*  nity being especially marked   in  tho case of wheat.      It  further  says Hint the duly of 6c por lb on  cheese is practically prohibitive  against Canadian cheese,   whilst  uuder   ilie   agreement it would  only have to compete with Swiss  and Italian in Ilie United States,  That the 6c per Ui on butter n-  sulte with uo trade between  us,  and that the ultimate effect   of  making it free will lend to a'trade  in bitter, with the result that,we  shall make less cheese nnd   the  price of it will be higher iu consequence.  In Hie matter of fruit, it .'ays  thai- i aiiaciii now imports $270,-  000 worth of American apples,  and ouly export* 840,000 worth;  so that Canadians already depend  n--nt- tlv> St'ik"- for their apple:;.  In the matter of fish, it states  that ihe Uni fed Kingdom-supplies the Americans with large  qualities of fish, but thai under  Reciprocity Canada will capture  that trade from ns,  The report says that tiiere is  an iuiinen.se opening for the Ca������  iiodian farm or under Reciprocity  Agents for Pilsener Brewing Company's BHHR  Wholesale Dealers in all Kinds of  Wines and Liquors.
