He states that having obtained  permission totrade in Manchuria, he  torn up, and his papers were cut up  left Tientsin last December, and upon reaching Mukden he was arrested  although Port Arthur was a place ho  had never visited. His papers were  in the search" for any incriminating  r!;:diluents, the only reply to his rc-  monstiaiices hoiiig-, "Oh, you British  me all the same, you would help the  Japanese."  At the end of ten days he was sent  under escort to the military prison  at Harbin.\; There he remained1, for  six months'. ,->��������� Then Mr. Geddes' was  placed'among a gang of forty criminals, tthe lot >'-boing hustled into a  prison wagon, with three- soldiers  watching each , man.

At ; Warsaw, though suffering  from exposure, he was placed in a  small room devoid of furniture, and  without sufficient "--warmth. Each  morning an official came in,, and giving him half a dozen lashes with his  belt;1 said ''Confess you arc a spy."  He refused and the whipping eventual  iy censed.

Life was extinct when the  coal was removed unil it is supposed  that the blow on the head caused instantaneous death. As is customary,  fellow workmen of the deceased re-  l/urned home on*the next train and at  two o'clock ail that remained of the  young fellow Jwas brought to town.  The accident has cast deep gloom over the entire camp.  Of the late Mr. Kipling but little  is known, and his most intimate  friends can teib nothing of his family beyond the fact that what relations he had were lining in England.  He came from England to this country when only ' thirteen years of age,  and at one time resided at Extension  He had been residing at Ladysmith  some months, living at llrs. Josephs  boarding house, Roberts Street. He  was unmarried and a little over (thirty yeare of age, but looked much  younger. He was a pleaeant person  and in the boarding house was greatly beloved by the proprietress and his  1'cllow boarders. Among the younger men of the city hy whom he was  well known, Mr. Kipling Kvas a great  favorite and that he should he taken  away while in the prime of life causes sincere and widespread sorrow.

Steamship uinpa-  ny, who died at sea while on '"3: y  homo    from    Bombay    on iuc  mail steamer    Egypt, which has just  reached London from India.  It appears that Mrs. Martin, who  was a widow, joined the Egypt as a  passenger.. Nothing about her was  known except that she had been for  many years a stewardess and that  her husband when living was employed in the Bombay dockyard. When  hw body had been \cosnmitted to the  ���������sea her effects were overhauled with  the. view of discovering the .names', of  her relatives.  The search f ailed in. this direction  but ina cash box concealed among  clothes in . a cabin-trunk was-found  documentary proof that the woman  had in the biwik'to her credit jn London the sum >pf ten 'di-jnfraiil pounds  the accumulation of tips received dur  ing her many voyages.  About thirty pounds in gold was  discovered in a bag which Mrs. Martin was accustomed to carry around  her neck while asleep, and the jewelry found stowed away has been valued at several hundred pounds.  ._.

As   we know, a hors"  when walking or trotting advances  only one leg of each pair at a time,  but when galloping lifts both foro  'eet together and then both hind feet  and now the question is how other  animaU manage this matter. The  birds, of course, flap both wings together, hut which ' run and' -which  'hop? We human beings trot when  we walk and gallop when ws swim,  that is, if we are using the plain  breast stroke. The dog, however,  trots for -both. Now, do the amphibious animals, the seals, otters  and the rest, swim like men or like  other  four footed  creatures?  Then ther are the fish. One-  would .ratlur expect that, as they  move their tails from side to side  they .would flap alternately with thr  fins, which are their hands and feet.  Who < can tell whether they 'do or  not, land whether all fish follow one  rule? By Vie way how does a frog  use its hands?  ���������  The great anatomist, E. Ray Lan-  hester, has pointed out that, while  the thousand legs' such as our common gaily worm, advance two feet  of a pair together, the centipedes,  which aremuch like them, do exactly  the opposite, aind the swimming  worms also alternate the stroke of  each pair of paddles. I doubt if  many people can tell on which system the caterpillar manages its dozen or so legs or whether the adul  insect walks, trots; paces or galloi s  on its six. How does the spider  use eight?  . Altogether this is a large field for  observation, a field, too, where anyone' may discover new facts as yet  unrecorded^ andthus add to the store  of knowledge. ���������St. Nicholas. -   o   thb tar.

A cause celeb^e.of deep and romantic interest, popularly known as the  Carlingford case, t>ut disguised as  Swifte .vs. Swifte, was opened in No  vemberlst, after apparently interminable delays, in the Chancery Division of the High Court, Dublin, Ireland.. '  The- dramatic personc in this    romance of real life are:  George Godwin Baker Swifte  (plaintiff)  alleged  lawful son and one  of the next of kin of G. M. P.  Swifte,  commonly known      as  Lord Carlingford,, by his      first  wife,   Jane Annie Hopkins.  Mary J. .Swifte (nee Clarke),      the  first   defendant,  widow  (second  wife),   and  administratrix       of  ,    the late Lord  Carlingford.  0.  B.  M.   Swifte,  the second defen-  i dant,  a younger son of the   deceased Lord Caelingford by his  marriage with the defendant.  Lord Carlingford  died  in  18C4,  intestate, possessed of considerable pro  perty, which his widow claimed,    alleging that  her husband's first  marriage  with  a Miss .Hopkins, t(hc  mother of the plaintiff,  was invalid, he  haying at that time gone through a  form  of marriage with an Austrian  baroness.   The validity of this    . is-  trian  alliance  is disputed on  behalf  of the plaintiff.  At     the  time administration   vas  granted     to the widow the plaintiff  ivas serving as a midshipman in the  East Indies.   He returned to Ireland  in      18C5, and found his stepmother'  and a number of her relatives living  at his  father's place,  Swifte Heath,  near Kilkenny.    'I he defendant  represented t0 the plaintiff and his brother that  she  had no  right  to  maintain  themr,  that they' had  no lawful  claim on their father's estate,     and  she gave them.������50 each on condition  that they would leave and seek   their  fortunes elsewhere.  The boys left home." Plaintiff's brother joined   the  Royal   Irish Consta-  blary.    He   happened   to   be in  Tip-  pcrary at the time of the Fenian rising  in   1807,  and he got a very    bad  ��������� ilncss  from  exposure  on the  mountains while scrv,.ng on one of   those  battalions ^that were sent after   the  Fenians.    Subsequently hejiad       to  leave the R.I.C. on a small gratuity.  His step-mother refused Ito let    him  in,   and he   was turned away penniless.   He died a pauper in the South I  Dublin Union  of   disease of the tiraui,  on  the 15th of April,  1871.  Counsel  for  the plaintiff, in       his  opening statement, said that the   defence had been raised  that the plaini-  tiff and his 'bltotiher, Tonguevillc,  and  his sister Julia  lanthc Swifte,  were  not  lawful  children  of the deceased,  because he had openly committed bigamy by marrying with Miss    Hopkins, and had rendered himself liable  t0 ^criminal prosecution,,a previous  b^Z/iago    having been gone through  by"'Lord Carlingford  uith   Baroness  de    Wetziar.   In that the, defendant  had stopped by a judicial act of the  Court of     Probate in Ireland, which  had declared Lord Carlingford to   be  the lawful husband  of the mother of  the plaintiff.  The' plaintiff challenged the marriage with the foreign lady on many  grounds, one of which was that it  was void by reason of a statute then  in existence as being a marriage between Catholic and Protestant, and  celebrated .'by a Catholic clergyman.  Plaintiff's career,; said counsel, was  as  interesting as,a novel.    When the  question   arose as  to   what the boys  were to do, it was decided that the  plaintiff  should  go   into  the marine  service.  He was asked to sign indentures in  Dublin  to go in a vessel called      the  Sawlingham.     . Plaintiff,  who     was  then   10  years  of age, declined'    to  sign, and  went to  his sister,     Mrs.  O'FJaherty, in London.  'Before     the  vessel sailed from Plymouth beseemed to have reconsidered his decision,  and went there with  the intention of  joining the slip.   He was rowed out  to the vessel, hut the captain said he  know nothing about him, and refused  to takc^him aboard.  After some time plaintiff was put  on  board the Royal. Alice, \and  . v_ _     he  sailed  for  Australia  with  directions  to join the Sandiingham there,    but'in   Kilkenny,   which have  since  when he, arrived the captain     again   loaged to the family.  I.  refused to admit him.  Subsequently when he was at Calcutta on board  the  Royal  Alice, he  heard    by     accident of his father's  death,    which     took place  in July,  1801.   It so happened that the Sand-  ringham was also at Calcutta at the  time,  and  left 'port   while  he     was  there with  seventy coolies  onboard.  It was     her last voyage.   She went  down with all hands except the captain and his wife, who managed   to  escape.    Subsequently   plaintiff       returned  to Ireland as stated above.  It is interesting to note that     the  very estates  whose ownership is now  in dispute, were obtained under     romantic circumstances.    Rev.

IIe    was  known   to be     a person of exoejitric  disposition.  The   old     coat was examined and  found  to  contain  4,000  gujneas��������� his  whole Jortune, which he had  convert!-  ed   into  money.
