Addresses to Organized Labor���Mass Meeting in Union  Hall���Street   Railway   Employees'  Union    Tenders  a  Reception  to   Their  President���The Other Speeches.  Last Saturday night we had a flying  ' tvlslt from .the distinguished President,  ,-W. D. Mahon, of tho Street Rollway-  (uton's Union of America,   of Detroit.  ."b.18 occasion was taken advantage of  lyy holding- a mass meeting- in Union  *all in, the evening, but there was, we  .regret to say, not a large attendance,  irtio coronation  of king JSdward-'was  .ibeing  celebrated   as   a    holiday,   and  Ihere being    several   excursions   and  " other attractions, It. was impossible to  avoid this state of affairs, besides ths  .heat  was   very   excessive.   Mr.  J.  H.  -Watson acted as chairman! and after  .a few brief remarks introduced  PRESIDENT MAHON,  .   who dellvered'a short but masterly address on trades ' unions."  He   compll-  jmctitcd   those  present  on  the healthy  condition  of organized labor in   these  jparts.   After referring to the healthy  .condition of trades unions, lie said that  iwe   hear   much   criticism   of  .thorn  In  .this country.   When he said  that,  he  .aneunt In Canada us iwell as the United States.   Some critics said that  the  union'wns not a religious-organization,  and consequently    no   self-respecting  (Christian could conscientiously support  them.   The speaker said, that .the min  ���who criticises  along  these  lines  dojs  jiot know  what religion  ,means.   The  other night ho had been talking to a  jntnlste'r oh  the' subject  of  child'lu~  -   }>or, who argued that religious - bodies  , .were' the-ones  to solve this .problem,  and not the unions, as'tt>was,a religious Question.   But were  the -religious  bodies   doing   that?   The  unions   were  -- t  agitating for the abolition ot child ra-  3}or, yet they were'classed as. not b2-  ing religious Institutions,''-which, he  1 thought," t'heyrvwero -if /the true con  ception of Christianity were unacrstoo.1.  ���"1 have, known," mud the speaker, "of  ministers being sent to Jail for stealing  horses, yet I, did not condemn" the  church for that." 'Neither should the  union be condemned ,by our enurenmen  as being irreligious for the acts of Individual unlscrcants. The trades union  was the only institution that ha3 fought  consistently and energetically in season  and out'of season for the" abolition of  ���������Mid labor. ,In one, winter,in Ohicugj  176 sweatshops .where women and children iwere employed had -been displaced  through the efforts'-of the union. At  that time every single society, religious  and-otherwise, ��� '  "Were Silent,  till the niueh-despUed trades union  arose and said that this slavery of  'helpless 'women -and dhlldren must  stop. "Suiter llttlo children to -come  unto me," said Ctni&t. Now, wtnon we  Tiear men. criticise the union as an  ' irreligious body and .cannot be supported by them on thes,e grounds, we must  naturally icomo to the conclusion that  they are not sincere in their contentions. The "active trades unionists .-ire  used to tho arguments put forth by  every crunk und eveiy other fellow -who  =_want -to_i!nd_exciibes_tn_condejniu_tho  union, lie had'always mado it a rule  never to argue with nn old man. One  had disagreed with 'hlni on tho policy  adopted by trades 'unions to'accom-  plish their nJ.ns uud objects. Ho h-id  ibeen told thnt the decalogue of tho  church -was quite sulllclent to solve the  lndustrl.il question, Inasmuch ns it was  the golden rule, do unto others us you  would Ibe done by. This old gentleman  said If this rule were lived up to ho  thought that society would bo quite dlt-  feront, and thi huh would ho all light.  The speaker said to him, lot's iigric  to Unit, ft' tihls precept wero observed  thero would be nothing for soldiers, the  IxHIcemen or the lawyers to do. But  we've got thein all, though, and tiny  nre kept busy, because among tho ruling cliisscu the Christian prevails, an I  -wo have commercialism rampant all  -over the olvlll'/.od world.' This fuct wns  iiot because itlvore nvcrc no Christians,  lint ibecauso there was no Christianity,  'Again wo w.sre ,  ' Criticised for Strikes.  With the great, majority the strike was  tho lust resort. In this rogard it somotimes (was amusing and sometimes ivery  annoying to .hear nbout criticism ot the  ���union by business men. Yet the strike  was only part ot the tactics the (business -community practised to-day. "We  are always prepared 'to defend ine  .principle of the strike," ithe speaker  added. Critics say that the trade union  is the work of demagogues and agitators. Sometimes in railroad circles it  Is said that'they (the demagogues) only  wuntcd you to organize for whait they  can make out of It. Let us go back into  sacred history. Old Moses was criticised iby tlie powers that be and he took  Ills .union and went 'Into business himself. Old jPtiaroah dldnlt know much  about up-to-date commercialism, or he  would have taken out an Injunction and  stopped his , runaway wage slaves.  "We're passed the day," said Mr. Jla-  hon, "when slander and abuse will stop  our progress. The very fact th'at we  are growing hour toy hour proves that  tho prlnoiples of trades unions are  right." Some of our carping critics say  that the trades union moves too slow:  that Its members are too slow and ��on-  sorvatWo. The trades union does not  stand in the way of those who want  to -go foster. The union stands behind  every reform and honest movement.  We realize that this is a business world  and we realize" that the history of the  world is one of  Slow Evolution. ���'  Therefore It behooves us to be extremely careful in the position we take to  maintain our position. If trades unions  bring men together in their several Industrial occupations, It remains for the  unions to break the fetters which make  them the wage slaves of the world today, and thus lea've things for our  children (better than they were .when we  found them. The, union aids and en-  courages the down-trodden .wortter. It  Is the only Institution that does. Can  we look anywhere else that does?. Do  you 'know, friends, said the speaker,  that strikes mark the higher and better civilized mien .of the world. You  don't hear of strikes In China, India  or darkest Africa, (where the (price of  labor Is so cheap. Some of our capitalists say, when & stnlke Js inaugurated,  "Let us starve the strikers into submission." No hungry man will rebel;  he is too weak. In 1897 iwhen the wages  of miners got below the living line, we  went among the poorest paid men in  Virginia. We couldn't get them to organize; we couldn't even talk to thein.  Then to talk about  him that the shelves   of every   store  along tho many miles of streets were  , Full to Overflowing.  It wus said the reason for tills .wus  overproduction. He contended that it  was underconsumption. The old school  of economics said to him that won'-t go:  Hore ij-ou've got your supply. There,  poinding to an army of'unemployed, ho  snld, you've got tlie demand, and besides you've got the gold standurd and  you've got tho panic. The law of monoy  was subject to the demands of Hades  unions. Give the producer the full  value of his services nnd you ha'vo  solved the problem of the panic. On  these grounds Mio speaker held lhat  the trades union was a true business  Institution, und dt was a true friend of  the masses. It may have its weaknesses, hut lt is battling steadily away:  It 'was battling for society all along the  line to rnlse the standnia of mankind;  it was battling against the pornicio.is  sweatshops. The efforts ol the union  were to organize and educate mankind.  There was no force that i.vlll stop .this  great movement of humanity, and It-i  wonk would continue until It captured  the control of file industrial and'political freedom of the world. President  Million resumed (Ms seat amid loud ap-  ulauso.     .  Knriry Cowan moved a hearty vote  of thanks to the speaker of the evening.  This was seconded by Mr. Wrigley, 'of  the Canadian Socialist, and carried  unanimously. ���'   '    ,  ' -Mr. Mahon replying congratulated or  ganlzed labor of Vancouver for having  'procured so magnificent 'a, hall and  home. V  Revolutionizing the World  by men who were poor and starving, he  thought, was absurd. The policy of the  trades union ls to feed and educate men  to a realization of their conditions.  Then they w'll light ifor and obtain  their rights. -The speaker spoke on behalf of trades unions from a business  point of view. They sny, he said, that  trades unions-lnterforc -wlth-tho question of business. Mon .who talk thus-  ly did not know their subject. The object of trades unions wns ito And a market for the products ot labor. A United Slates Benutor had asked why this  locking of the gates ot Pekln; we wont  ���to find markets for our products. The  speaker here dealt with tlio money  question, and referred' to the panic of  1801 Ho said that money never 'created  a pnnlc, nor yet prevented one. Money  wns a big coward nnd iwas always  roadv to run on the slightest provocation. Tho panic was ithe result of condition)! which prevailed iprlor to Its  coming, In 1S92, Carrol D. Wright  pointed out that the productions al  each iwiige-oarner per dny were worth  $10."l>, but ho only received $1.3.~> for  thein.

The occasion was a recaption in Sutherland  'hall, Westminster avenue, to W. D.  iMahon, who' was (paying- a short vi3it  to Vancouver. He 'belongs to Detroit,  Mich.,' land ls 'the honored president of  the International Association of ..Street  Hallway Employees of America. Mv.  Mahon has ibeen making a tour of the  western states in company with the  grand old man of lalbor, President Samuel Gompers, of the American Federation of Labor, and party. Among the  Invited guests present were: J. Buntzen, general manager B. C. Electric  Railway Company, limited; ..J. B. (Rannie, .traffic superintendent of the B. C.  E. R. C; President Lamrick, of the  Trades and Labor council; and J. H.  .Watson, the organizer, of the street  rallwaymen's union of thfls city, and  some forty memlbers from the New  Westminster division. Besides these  about 100 men of the local union completed the list. It was shortly after the  bewitching hour of midnight .when all  sat down to the splendid supper prepared iby Mr. Barnwell, - the popular  Granville street chef.  . .ROBERT BRUNT,  the genial presldcnt.after all had more  than satisfied the cravings of tho inn=r  man, set the ball rolling by proposing  the health of His Majesty the Kin,r,  which was heartily responded to.  Next was the response to the toast  of the British Columbia Electiic Railway Company, by  MIR. BUNTZEN. ���  '���SNb trades union wanted to see strikes, Uemand.   Mr.  Mahon pointed   out to  their mutual-busdncas with Mr. Mahon  It Is no exaggeration to say that that  gentleman received such a rousing reception by the gathering as baffles our  dlscriptlon. During his address he was  frequently applauded.' After the loud  but Joyful demonstration had subsided  the popular -manager, in his own plain  business way of putting things, started  by_.,3iiyiins:_'_If I_hnd tho_voIce_and_ the  eloquence I would make you a good  speech to-night" (but nevertheless he  made a good speech). There are many  companies, he said, where a meeting  like the 'present between tho employees'  organization and the management  Would he considered an Impossibility.  "That is not the case with us," he  added. He felt It as a compliment pnld  hlui when he -wiui to meet ithem and  their International president, Mr. Mahon. iMr. Buntzen was particularly  'Pleased to meet his mou lu the presence  of Mr. 'Mahon, ibecuuso ho was sutls-  lled that ho  1 Know .More About the Conditions  of street railway men In this country  than any other mini living, nml thc  speaker had no -four of linking hlni hl.-i  straight opinion on the fitter iho (llunt-  zen) had made the union on behalf of  the company's (board of dlroatni.s nnd,  generally speaking, on the relations ex-  " Istlng ibetwoen tho company's management and Its employees. That morning  he had a long /and interesting talk on  in the inesencc ot President Brunt Mild  Secretary Perry. "I found your Inter,  national president what I expeoted him  to be, un able and thorough exponent  ot union principles, and  A Strong Advocate :  'of your rights, particularly your right  to obtain the ibest possible pny for your  lahor," continued Mr. Buntzen. This  l.lght lie had never disputed. As manager of this Important company he considered himself not only a protector ot  the,.shareholders' .Interests, but he was  also there to see thiu they, on .whoso  careful and sood work the company's  nuceess ao largely depended, got everything thut tliey were entitled to. The  Hluireholder must ihave a .fair interest  on lils Investment, or It Willi be Impossible for tihe company to raise the cup-  3ial It requires 'fiom time to time for  the necessary extensions and Improve,  ments of Its system" and the employe-,:  Must Have Kali- Wages  for his w,oi k, or no good work can be  expected. And when both shareholdei  und employee have been fairly treats 1  It is then that he -wanted to try tho  experiment .he had explained to them  fully in a recent letter. He meant the  system of profit sharing. It isitoo orten  the case in large companies that the  management pulls one way and the employees the other. The directors meet  in private and consider the questions  before them from their point of view,  the men hold secret union meetings and  naturally hear only their own side.  Now tlhis is the pointi  Where Danger Arises.  With strong onesided opinions opposed  to, each other there Is trouble in the  air."-'But there is an effective remedy  always on hand, and that is .to meet  and talk matters over. There is the  safety valve. "I am always pleased  when you ask me to meet you, because  I know that I will learn something from  you, who know where the shoe pinches,  and Jhope I can point out to you a  fow things that may not have occurred  to y6u before," continued Mr. Buntzen.  'And^the one thing tliat he could never  say too often to them was that they  ' Must Protect the Shareholders' |  fair 'interest on their investment. "Be-  cause .you work for a corporation li  'does not .follow that you work for rich  men," he pointed out. The name "corporation" creates with many an erron-  'eous idea of something large, wealthy,  that sliould be opposed.'' But when you  'come to dissect this corporation into its  'component parts and find 370 Individual  shareholders in all walks of life,'and  you rememiber that the money most of  'these people have ti listed to them Is  .hon'thing ibut saved-up earnings, money  'they .might have squandered away, but  'that they have  1 ���      Put Away for a Rainy Day,  MAY STRIKE AGAIN.  The day that the strike was ciII-.'-l  off und the agreement signed by Clo.i-  eral Manager Tonkin for the joinpany,  and by the committee for the Gladstone Miners' Union, No. 70, of the \V.  F. of M��� Mr, Tonkin told the committee that he intended in the neiir future  to draw up a scale of prices wlilch he  wanted the committee to sign in behalf of the union. He assured the committee that he would not cut the prlcei,  or, in other words, that the prl.*2s  would remain ns they iwere. , When Mr.  Tonkin came here, the very next day  he submitted lils scale of prices to the  union. But to their surprise, theie wns  a general cut of fiom 5 to '20 par cent.  In other words, the prices in Mr. Tonkin's scale are fiom 5 to t!0 per cent,  less thnn the prices paid hy.the company previous,to Mr. Tonkin's arrival.  Of couise the union refused to sign his  proposed schedule. It Mr. Tonkin Insists on enforcing his prices, it will  leave but one thing for the men to do,  that Is. to again tie up the mines of  the Crow's -Nest Pass,< either on the  first pay day or at the expiration cf  the two months referred' to In the  agreement.

"Yes, sir."  ln the interval, while he waited,  he thoughtfully paced tho floor of  his room. A revolution was going  on in his mind. Ho felt the rising  tumult; but he kept himself in cheek,  ur.d tried to readjust., dispassionately,  the impressions ho had boon experiencing in tho pnst. few days. He wns  restlessly impatient for tho roturii of  tho servant.  He wns kept waiting for what  semod to him an intreinitiahly long  timo. But at leuglh when the man  ���did return, ho camo empty handed.  Forney's eager answer to tho knock  upon his door was followed by a staro  of blank dismay upon seeing that tho  servant brought him nothing.  "Did you find Miss Rankin?"  asked.  "Yes, sir, and "  "Then where i.s tho answer?"  "She  didn't   givo me    nono,   sir,  and "  "You waited, as I directed you?"

And the  ill-trained follow gavo Fornoy a familiarly confidential grin which tempted tho doctor to throw him down the  stairs. "I hope," the man added  with great friendliness, "that, tho an-  Bwor'll be iavor'blo, Doctor."  Tho door was closed in the servant's  face.

Sho had been sitting or half lying ou the beach, hor  elbow planted in tho sand, hor head  propped on hor hand; but as he sat  down beside her sho raised herself to  a loss abandoned position. Ho noticed  that, her faco wns palo in the moonlight, and grave almost to solomuity.  Tlio tono iu which she spoke to him  was vory low and serious.  "I am sorry, now, that I troublod  von to come," sho said. "I was too  impulsive in sending back that message. I havo been thinking about it  while I havo been Waiting for yon  horo, and I havo dooideil not to toll  you, after nil, what I meant to tell  yon, when I sent you word to come."  "But tho note that you meant to enclose in that envelope., Miss Rankin?"

But you are .vastly  mysterious for so small a person!"  "I suppose so," she said smiling;  and he, too, smiled internally at her  guilelessness in imagining that her  secrecy at all mystified him. He ww  pretty suro that he understood hor  ense, to some extent, at least. However, since she pio.ened that  should not'understand it, ho would  lot her have the comi'ori of her delusion. -     .  "What have you boon doing down  here?" he nsked. "Just Tying hero  mooning? I never saw suoU-a dreamer!"7  "One can take time to live here,"  she said. "I have boon forgetting,  in this dolicious coolness aud quiot  that clings around everything, that I  am tired. It is a good place to como  to wheu you want to have 'more of  God and less of men,' isn't it?"  '"Less of men,'" he repentod, ruefully.

I mentally congratu-  he luted them ou their bliss, but as it  did not fit in with my mood, I felt a  littlo disturbed."  "I can imagine," ho said; then ho  added, " So you think thnt you and  Miss Matthews do not get nn vory  woll together? How about Miss  Halo?"  "I lovo to look at her���sho is so  beautiful. But I havo to closo up  valves in talking to her.

"Iwas thinking of a man that she  rominds me of; when I am with him  I always close up, ns I do with her.  To be married to any one towards  whom I felt so���to me it would be���  hell."  So softly musical was the tone' in  which she uttered the almost obsolete  word, that he was not startled by ��� it,  and scarcely oven surprised.  "Now," he said, "Miss Matthews  would say you wore 'unladylike.' "  "Yes. I would not be ladylike,  though, for the world. Isn't it an  atrocious word?"  "Which? The region to which you  just roferred, or the term used occasionally by tho Matthows?"  "I mean that Door, miserable 'ladylike: '"  to nntl each other out."  "When do you go?" he quickly asked.  "As soon ns���I do not know exactly.   In n week or ton days, I think."  "Shall you go to your home?''  "N���no,���I am   not  suro  where  I  shall go," sho snid evasively.

"Some episodes of tho drnmn woro  a littlo surprising; when tho Qneon  became wearied with the strain of her  interview with tho Roformer, sho  asked Hor courtiers for some soothing  music,. anil what do you think they  sang to hev?"

Tho villagers thought  it  a very telling  touch  and applauded  enthusiastically.''  "Goon," Forney laughed. "What  other adventures and experiences have  you had?"  "Well," she complied, "I'll tell  you somothing I saw this afternoon.  As I'was standing in front of the  grocery store in tho village, I heard  two old fishermen reading a signboard which announced that Mr. Aston Smith would give a oourso of  lectures in Danville on 'The Ago of  Elizaboth.' 'Tho Ago of Elizabeth'  said ono of tho old men. 'The Ago of  Elizabeth? Woll. who cares a blank  how old Elizabeth is?' 'Up'there's  a picturo of old Billy Shakcspoare,'  said the other fisherman, looking  meditatively at tho faco that adorned  tho top of the announcement. 'I'd  know a picture of him anywheres.  Do you know,' he drawled, very  thoughtfully, 'sonie mighty queer  things used to come into his head.  Some things used to como into his  head that never would havo came into  mino!' "  "No wonder you havo not found it  dull hore," he said, "If you co about  picking up little scenes like that.  Any more?"  "You are like a child for demanding,stories.''Any moro?

A shy uml reserved man, truly I   .  I could forgive iill that shyness nnd  reserve of his'had it not,boon 'for;7'a  fortnight's visit he paid my country  somo yours ago, in the person of a  crisp critic of a London journal, who,  on his wuy, stopped at Sligo town,  in ,wet weather; got a "native" to  row him on Lough; Gill for an hour,  studied the native and the rain, and  then bottled all the Irish questions in  one crisp column iii one wot evening.  ���Had tliat evening not been wet, he  would, he said,- have,fished for trout,  leaving all the Irish questions unsettled. So do the destinies of nations  hang on small English incidents,  I could forgive his crisp, columnar  settlement of nil the Irish questions  hud il hot boon that he included tho  question of my native brogue on the  English singe, a question the solution of wliich 1 had reserved for myself, or hoped, at lenst, to soo settled'liy. , somo ''other''Irish-speaking  ''Irishman.: In my indolent, Irish wny  I lutu been for years studying an,imminent need for a inngiium opus,  formulating the data uml generally  cultivating the nientiil growth that  must load to a -.triumphant; climax,  when John Hull ciimo to Sligo, borrowed a rusty nib, and, in a rainy  hour, took my brogue out of my  mouth, not to mention his appropriation of the Government of my country at tho same time.  Since then I have had my rcvengo  on various occasions,. in London  theatres and elsewhere, listening to  his laughter at the stage pronunciations ho himself had established in  the above journal���lie laughed at his  own inventions, and I laughed at  him? Irish readers will at least understand the grotesque stupidity of  audi pronunciations as "praisht" for  priest, "swail" for sweet, etc. When  these phonetic outrages are accompanied, by a rod nose, a muddy faco,  /drunken hair and a drunken stagger,  the sight and the sounds arc very  much like an English asylum for  criminal lunatics than anything anybody has ever hcuid or seen in this  island of mine. The sufferings unnecessarily indicted on Irish people in  this wuy are considerable, and call  for redress, if only in the interests  of tho Englishmen.  . Such aro tho reasons that lead me  to attempt a few suggestions that  may su\c the Englishman from making himself so intensely ridiculous in  thc matter of Irish stage pronunciation.  The great bulk of tho difficulty  with vowels and their combinations  is in connection with ea, which is  very commonly equal to a in fare,  as, for example, meal is "mail," seal  "sail," steal "shtail;" etc. Nothing  else in the whole business of the  Irish brogue comes nearer to a general rule ...ithan this, though the exceptions ure numerous. Here are a  'number'.of the commonest and most  useful words with ea that do not  change by the brogue���clear, dear,  fear, gear, hear, near, speiy, year,  tear (that is, weeping). I cannot remember any others. It will be noticed that they all cud in r. Wono-  syllabli-s with en, and ending in any  otlier letter, are nearly all pronounced in brogue fashion, as "mait" for  moat. The same applies to all terminations of words, of whatever  length. With duo attention to those  exceptions and remarks, it mny be  taken as a safe and general rule thnt  ea is equal to a in fare." Thi.s information alono ought to go halfway  toward the redemption of tho English stage Irishman from his phonetic follies.  1 do; not. think that, anything, like  -a-siife-'gunei-al-ruler���excoption-this,-  can be established in connect ion with  vowels. ''Queer", is the only word  with ec that 1 can remember to - bo  incorrectly pronounced���it is always  "quurc." You can tnkjc this as a  general rule, if you think it necessary  for tho sake of ono word. It may  be, for tho English estimate of our  brogue vowels- is hopeless���as hopeless us the English judgment of us  ull.round. If it bo well to makogon-  eriil rules for tho sake of a fow odd  words, I could multiply such words  to an inconvenient extent.  Tho vowel i Is very ���..Interesting for  stugo purposes. Only ln one respect  docs It depart from the proper value,  but this departure is most characteristic, and, onco mustered, mny go  fur to help the, actor. Tho brogue  pronunciation of i i.s liko ol in moist,  but thinner; It is much nearer to tlio  valuo it has in tho French oui. which  is probably hotter known in English  than any other French' word. Try  to begin tho sound with something  of tho u value In it, finishing up as  thlii us possible; mind, "moind ;"  iind, "foind," etc. There ls no practical need to bother about o, except  that mother Is  "muther."  The oo assumes the brogue in two  instances, in door the oo has the  same valuo ns in moor, and the same  follows with floor,7 which is "dure."  In theso cases, of course, the Irish  brogue is tlio proper English, and  would be accepted as such had the  English languago not boon so' unreasonable.  '; ;>(��� ii 'ought    nearly    always    to  sound like oo shortened, and there Is  no need to trouble about w or y.  Any vowel between :onsonants retains ils proper value, whether long  or short, except i and ei. E is generally equal to i in wit; spend is  "spind," send is "sind," etc.  The ��� Irish never go wrong with ie,  notwithstanding the English  "praisht.": and although the English  actor invariably makes it liko 'n in  fair. ��� When 1 first heard "praisht"  I felt almost ill.  Either is "ayther," neither "nay-  thcr," receive "rcsave." For the  rest, ei retains its proper English  sound.  1) Is like th in wether, In a smnll  number of words: border "borthcr,"  order "orthor," etc. This applies  only when cr follows thc d. lid is  equal to lh in.father; but the words  to which this applies arc not many  ���ladder is "lather," fodder "fothcr"  rudder "rulhcr," shudder "shuther"  etc.  As lo h, tho most, illiterate of  Itiiyomcn; may give lessons.to a largo  minority of English educated peoplo.  Among consonants, s is almost as  impoiliint as ca among tho vowels.  Befois" the consonants c, k, 1, n, t,  at any part of thc\word, s is equal  to sh. "Shkar" is scar, "shkip"  skip, "shlavo" slave, "shnipo" snipe,  and "shtop" stop. There are no  exceptions that I can remember. In  a few words, t is equal to th, water  is "walher," bloater "bloather,"  porter "porther," ; splinter "splin-  ther," winter "winthcr."  Except nt the end of the word, tt  is equal to th, as "other" (otter)���  the tt sounds ns th in with, not ns  th in smooth. Exceptions'. Whon tho  tt is followed by i or y, the correct  pronunciation is retained, as in putty, wittier, prettier, &c. I do not  know  any -farther exceptions.  Of course, this is an imperfect  grammar,;being.- a first edition, by  one who is not a grammarian; but  itVmay afford_a basis, and if.only for  the sako of ed and It, it may at onco  save actors from doing thcir injustices to themselves and Ireland. I  cannot pretend.to go, through the  whole dictionary and make my lists  of exceptions, absolutely perfect, but  should tho actor studying his part  find matters on which he wants further information, he Can easily look  out an Irish-spon' ing Irishman, who  may now he found in any civilized  country whore English is ipokcn.���  Pall Mall Gar.ette.

How tba Falk of "Sarata Island" Resard-  *U "Vika" the Croat Qae��, irkau  Fluff Conferred Strouslh~A: Kinc. in  I'ettlcaats-Qnaea Takes Off Her Boots  ��� How tha 31arina Lad tha rrencti.  Mr. Basil Thomson, tho governor  of Dartmoor Prison, in his now book  "Savngo Island," tells u most diverting story of his visit to ono of  our newest possessions, which lies  1,000 miles north of New Zealand.  In 11)00 he was sent to establish a  British protectorate over tho island,  and mora recently it was annexed to  Now Zealand by Lord Kanfurly. The  people had sent to Queen Victoria���  "Viku" they culled her���and begged  her "to send 'the powerful flag. of  Britain to unfurl in this island of  Niue, in order that this weuk island  of ours might bo s'rong."  Their conception of Uuoeh "Vlka"  was very quaint. They imagined her  as the "all-powerful chief whose  house wns built upon tho coral  strand of Lonitoni ' (London), Opposite tho lauding place, where her  mon-o'-war were moored stem: and  stern in rows before her doors. Sho  read their letters with her own eyes,  and had her captains to sit beforo  her on the, floor: mats while she gave  thorn messages for the brown folks In  far islands."  Mr. Thomson arrived at Savage Island on board II.M.S. Porpoise, nnd  sent word to King Tongia. "Early  in tho morning persons reported that  men were, erecting awnings i on the  green beforo the schoolhouso, that  the headmen of villages hair all arrived, aiid that' His Majesty was being helped into his tuniform. Ten  was the hour, and on the stroke of  the hour Captain Ravcnhill landed  .with- the portrait of the Queen, sent  from Windsor as a'present to the  King." But the King..wns; late.',;One  said ho was "arraying himself in the  how rifle-green uniform imported. for  him by the. storekeeper; another that  ho was taking off his royal trousers  nt tho behest of a Samoan teacher,  who assorted - that trousers were no  trappings for an interview with  Queen's commissioner."  At":hist, the royal procession came  in sight, and -Mr. Thomson is not  likely to forget it���for a less royal  affair could not ho imagined. It was  "headed vby;';a dozen mon in .slop  clothes nnd villainous billycock huts  set at rakish angle. Thoy all carried spears and: paddle-shaped club's tin  ieither hand, and a similar rabble  brought up the roar. In tho middle  of this grotesque bodyguard wal ed  the King and Queen, both in petticoats, as befits the sex to which they  belonged, for, if tho Queen was a  young woman, the King was assuredly an old ono. To thcir united  ages of ninety-four, His Tilnjesty contributed seventy-six.''  The Queen "wore a wreath of  rosos; he the soldier's helmet, with  tho cock's plume; which was all that  tho officious Samoan teacher would  leave him of his military uniform,  and from which he refused to be  divided; although it assorted ill with  his petticoat."  After much tal'��� ing, the treaty was  signed in the schoolhouso, "upon the  schoolmaster's standing desk, and  tliree separate messages were despatched to bring ink, pens and  blotting paper." At ono end of the  room a troop of children were noisily playing, and nearby a womnn was  sitting on the floor, placidly suckling  her baby."  The next thing was to put up a  flagstaff to fly thc British flag. This  was to be the-work of the bluejackets. But "as soon us the people understood thoir purpose, the crowbars  arid shovels w-ere snatched from the  hands of the bluejackets, and tho  natives themselves;; with shouts Of  laughter, fell to with a will upon  tho grave of their independence. The  bluojacketsr nothing loth to exercise  thoir unaccustomed role as foremen  of'works, were laughingly directing  operations," when some officious ciders, scandalized by. what they felt to  be a broach of manners, fell upon the  volunteors with thcir paddle-dubs  and drove them off, though not before tho happiest7 relations had been  established between the natives nnd  their visitors."  ��� A little later the King and Queen  returned the visit of Qii��en."Vika's"  representative. The captain of 1T.M.  S.;PorpoLso sent his boat for them.  "All went well until she nonrcd. tho  ship, and then the Queen, after a  whispered consultation .with her con-  s6rt~-b~gan~~ td~~ tTike~~~~ofI-her_bOots~  This operation being still in progress  long nfter tho boat was alongside  the gangway, faces began to peer  curiously over the side, but tho bluejacket stationed at the foot of the  ladder, preserved an admirable composure, and when Her Majesty had  paddled up tho steps in her stockings  ho gravely, followed thc procession  carrying the royal .boots, as if they  wore insignia of cjfllcc, lo tho suppressed.' mcrrimunt of his follows who  were drawn up to rocoivo the royal  party."  It wns the chart-room of the ship  which impressed tho King mostly.  "Docelved by tho brass chimney of  tho heating stove, ho declared it to  bo tho finest kitchen'.'ho had over  soon. It wus in vain for the interpreter to explain tho real uses of tho  room. It was. the. kitchen���anyone  could seo that for himself���and if tho  captain chose, for reasons of his own,  to lie about its real uses,���'. he, Tongia, was too old in the craft of tho  world to bo taken In I"  When tho interpreter, had hinted to  tho King,, "that it was timo to tako  loavo, tho King, producing a dollar  from his--waistband,-signified-his intention of jtipping tho captain for the  pleasant entertainment ho had provided; and the interpreter had tho  greatest difficulty in; persuading him  that such an act would be contrary  to the decencies of European custom."  No wonder British bluejackets are  popular. Mr. Thomson declares that  ii he were sot   ; tho task of winning  the confidence :of> suspicious and hostile natives, he would nsk' for nn escort of the first naval petty officers  rthat. came to hand, nnd consider the  work done. Here is a charming  story of how they won confidence :  ���'���U-turning from a walk late in the  afternoon,' we heard sounds of merry-making in the village square, and  found the whole population sitting  convulsed with laughter nt un entertainment provided by their visitors.  It appeared that the shore party, returning to their' boat, hnd discovered a lam! of urchins playing cntch  w iili oranges, niul seized upon thc  opportunity for teaching the new  Hi-ith-li. subjects I'-e lli-itish national  ':���.:.!". Willi slicks for wickets and  -i> tiitiiiii  butts'   for bats, they soon  tail tlie game going, und when wo  : ami! up a boy of eight was bowling  lt>. a hoarded, engine-room artificer,  wlio was going through ihe unties of  limn u-iLM-t to the huge delight of  'In- onloolcn-s. The little boys posi-  ii i.-ly  w-t.'j.t when  the boat, came   to  ni-:-y iiiv'uy I holt- new-found friends."  'llie King of.the Tnngnns onco told  Mr. Thomson that il. was because the  r-u'ii-li jol.e with the Tongans that  i. i.-v wire such guod friends, and he  '.(.l.i liim tliis lovely story in illus-  '.I'ution.- A French flagship arrived  in (-.ne cf the island's ports at the  .--���lien! i. hen il.M.S.

The English  ���MpUin went first to see the French  'Iill-. .in;! .so the- natives said, "Sec,  '.lie -Englishman'! admits his inferiority." lint they did not speak thus  on the next day. Eighty French  soldiers landed, und also one English marine, who used to carry the  letters to the postoflice. The French  soldiers" marched proudly in ! lines, of  four, and the natives thought tho  English marine would bo abashed  when he met them. 'What"was their  .surprise to see the .marine actually  wailing ior thc French soldiers, and  when they came up to. him "he put  himself nt their,-head and marched  so bravely, in his red coat that tho  Tongans: cried out, 'Lo, aking is approaching up with his bodyguard!'  "Tho face of the French ollicer was  not good to look upon, for when h--  called upon his men io stamp tht  ground and lot the marine  go on, ho also stamped thc  ground, and when they pressed for-  waid to .pass him, ho quickened his  steps and kept with tliem as if he  was indeed their leader; ; Nor was.it  better when thoy passed the guardroom,- and saw oven the'Tongan sentry dissolved in laughter, for ; the  marine'-behaved as if he was too exalted to know his friends, save for.a  H-n-et sign that he made to them  v itli one eyelid. So they went on  together to thc boat. Thc rumor of  I'us thing was carried throughout  Tonga, and tho people thought more  of this marine than of the French admiral and all his men."  .���SLAVES IN LONDON.BANKS.

Who tho first man was that bore  the name of Stanley is a mystery  that has bullied the most industrious  of the old chroniclers, but it appears  tolerably curtain that the family was  .settled at Sloncley in Derbyshire before the death of Edward the (Jon-  fishor. and subsequently became allied with thn iNorinan Audleys. It wns  not, however, until tlie reign of Edward 111. that the ntune was made  famous by John Stanley," whose  prowess.. ,nt the battle of Poicticrs  was reiiinrkablu o.cn on a day of  givtil deeds.

Kichurd Crookback  who managed to I eep his head on his  shoulders and eventually to got safely out of/the clutches of the tyrant.  Whether it was Sir Thomas, or his  brother William, who placed the  "Crown of ..ornament ',' oh Henry's  head nfter Bosworth Field is not certain; but the victor's manner of rewarding these ..noble brothers who  had risked their lives! for him was  remarkable. Thomas he.created Eail  of Derby; "William he executed for alleged complicity in the conspiracy of  Perk hi . Warbeck, and,; hastened to  confiscate his estates, a stop tliat  was only ,too pleasing, to jiving; Henry VII. Tho earldom of Derby, it  should be explained, had; long been  merged in the Crown. It wns first  bestowed by King Stephen on Robert  de Ferrers,.' who led tlio men ;of Derbyshire at tho battle of the Standard. ... .������Nevertheless historians .have  agreed to consider Sir Thomas Stanley as the first earl. Sometime later tho King visited the Etui of Derby at Lathom, and it is related that  when they went on to the housetop  to view the sin rounding countiy the  nobleman's jester whispered, loud  enough: for .'Henry to hear, "Tom. remember Will," whereat tho monarch  turned pale, so the, story goes, and  hastily took his departure. The first  earl was a careful man and saved  money. Ho was also diplomatic and  appeared at tho Court of Edward IV.  with both roses; entwined7 in his helmet. His second son, Sir Edward  Stanley, fought at Floddcn, and it  is to him the, last words of Marmion  are addressed.  Of ' the succeeding earls the fifth,  whom Spencer personified as Amyn-  tas, died ot a mysterious illness, possibly due to poison, and his brother,  who wns bis successor, had been so  long abroad that it required a law  suit of:several years' standing to convince his family that he was the  rightful heir. James, the seventh  holder of the title, surnnmed the  Great Earl, was a brilliant figure in  the Civil War. His countess was  worthy of her husband, and her defence of Lathom with a handful of  men against a determined host of  Hoiiniihcads for three months was  considered us great a feat in her  time us the defence af Jlafcking in  our own day. In "Peveril of the  Teak" Sir Walter Scott represents  her' as a ..Roman'. Catholic;; * Worcester, that was Cromwell's crowning  mercy, sounded the earl's death  knell, for while Charles was safely  hid in his oak tree, Derby fell into  the hands of his enemies, and'after  swift trial was executed at Bolton,  the town which he and Prince Rupert  had brilliantly taken by storm some  years bcfoio. It has been said of  Charles 1. that "nothing in his; lifo  became him like the leaving of it."  Derby's life was without stain and  without reproach, and he met death  no.less firmly than his Koyal master;  indeed, so7 admirable was his composure lhat on thc very scaffold ho de-  ~l"i^i~~~l~Tin~~rddr��bS"in~praise"oi princes  mid of laws, whicli so_: stirred tlie  people that tho soldiers bad dilllcully  in iu eventing a geneial uprising in  his favor, oven as lie laid his head  upon the block. A romance of tho  stage is associated with tlio name of  the" twelfth Earl of Derby, whose  second wife wns Elizabeth"Fn'rrcn, of  Driiry Lane. This fnscinnting and  talented actress is said to have numbered Charles James Fox amongst  her admirers, but, .Lord Derby .was  thc man she chose to marry, and  their union was In every respect a  happy one. Tho enrl was a noted  patron of sport, particularly ofiock-  flghtlng. and ho was fond of introducing the birds Into bis drawing  room to thu uinuseiiicnt of some of  his friends and the consternation of  others, At Knowsley the thirteenth  curl, who was an authority on;- nnt-  iii-al history, formed " nn unrivalled  collectionof birds and inannnallii.  .'lii. the ���fourteenth Earl of Derby  tho Houso of Stanley produced by  fui- its'most1 illustrious, member, lie  was Colonial'Secretary, in IS.'!.'!, and  left the Cabinet in disgust when  "Johnny (Lord John Kussell) upset  the coach" by voting for llie* disestablishment of the Irish Church  Both Disraeli and "Lord'Salisbury  held ollice in the Derby Adminii tuition of 1S32, and six years later il  fell to a Pei by Cabinet to add India  to the vast possessions of tho Crowft.  ���\\hon tho Conservatives made wn.*  for their opponents Queen Victoria  bestowed on "their- chief -an ext'rn'o'r-  ri'narv mark of Koyal favor bv   a��-  pointing him an extra Knight of thw  Garter, an honor hitherto; reserved  for princes. Nor (lid his countrymen  miss the opportunity of paying him  homage. A gi cat bouquet at Liverpool was amongst the compliments  showered upon __,ord Derby, and this  was followed by a review of 11,000  Volunteers at Knowsley���the Earl  was far-seeing enough to perceive  that a gieat fuiine lay before tho  much abused 'citizen soldiers. Then  the Rupert of debate settled down in  peace to complete" his translation of  Horner's Hind, but the country could  not allow him to plough his lonely  furrow loo long, and soon ho was  back In the political arena, making  thu whole country laugh at,his humorous criticisms nf. Russell's "meddlo  and muddle" policy. His last administration closed in three years by  his illness and resignation, und ho  died in 18(50.  Lord Stanley, afterwards fifteenth  Earl of Derby, had the unique experience of being a member of a Cabinet  presided over by his father. He was1  tho first Secretary for India, nnd  later us Foieign Secretary it fell to  him to draft the terms for settling  the'.. Alabama'claims. In 1870, as  Lord Derby, he married the widow of  the second "Marquis of Salisbury, for  whose sake, it is said, he had . re-  p.ained single three and7 twenty  years. From the Disraeli Cabinet, in  wliich he was Foreign Secretary,  Lord Derby retired after the Russo-  Tui-kish war, strongly disapproving  the foieign policy of Lord Beecons-  fiold, and went into Opposition. Under' Sir.

Lord Stanley  of Preston.  The piesent Earl, born ln 1841,  has hud a wide'experience.ot public  life. After holding the posts of a.  Lord of the Admiralty, Financial  Secretary for War, and subsequently  to the Treasury, Secretary for War.  and afterwards for the Colonies, he  was President of the Board of Trade  in 188G. and two years later wont  out to Canada as Governor-General,  returning in 1S03. lie has been  .Lord Lieutenant of Lancashirosince  1897.  ... It has already boon shown how the  7Isle'of Man camo into the possession  of the Stanleys. On the' death of the  eleventh carl, it passed to James  Murray, Duke of Atholl, whose  grandmother was a daughter of the  seventh cit��I. In 17P3 1b<- "interests  and privileges" of the historic island  were sold to tho Loi (Is of tho Admiralty for ��70,000, and in 1S0G; tho  sovereignty of Jfnn was purchased  outright by the British Government,  and what privileges remained were  bought In by the Crown twenty years  later.  "; ��� Triclitful llanccrii or thw llntli.  Tho London Lancet,which has for  many years been engaged in the -"  .noble':work of protecting humanity  from tho dangers that keep continually springing up, comes forward  with a timely warning against too  much bathing. In the spiing when  people's underclothes begin to stick  to them tho bath becomes particularly seductive. People-who ,can go  for a weelf in the., winter without  bathing frequently desire when tho  weather warms up to plunge into tho  tub every fow days. This condition  moves The'Lancet to say :  "Too much bathing is harmful, as  it tends to maceration of the superficial part of tho epidermis. _wliich .  is too frequently removed, and occasionally probably too rapid a proliferation of the colls of the mal-  pighian layer."  Let people who arc in the habit  of giving themselves up to tho pleasures of the bath pause and consider.  It is doubtless a serious thing to  bring on maceration of the superficial parts of the epidermis, and we  are free to confess that wc should  shrink in dread from c.ne who carelessly went about with a prolifcra-  tion of the colls of the malpighian  layer.  It is fortunate,that The Lancet has  pointed out the' dnnger in time to  heud off an epidemic of the trouble  mentioned, and we have no doubt  that the warning will, in most Quarters, be gladly heeded.  ::,.lturn* In Kermuny.

wages wero from 20 to 25 cents. These
conditions woro attributable 'to organisation. Tho principals of the association
woro mediation and arbitration—and
tlio policy to avoid strikes. Organization
was more urgently required by the street
railway employees than any other class
of workers. They woro exposedjto much
thinner, had )«reut responsibility resting
upon them, and had to he always on the
alert—to Im in full po.-iussion of tlnir
mental l'aciiltios. Short hours wero
therefore lu be desired. Ho strongly
advised r.ou-members of tho union to
enroll tliunu-chi-s iu its ranks ami assist
in tlio liiaintcnaiicc of tlieir funds—defence, t-ick aud death. Ho urged thc
conduct of tlio unions ou business lines.

When tho trades unions became strong
enough then compulsory arbitration
would bo resorted to. The union stood
ready lo arbitrate, but wanted to do 80

O  it ��� a  O     Copyright,   1901,   by O  �� David II.  Tclmsdet.    ��  $ofcoltoltotoo*4oKiiofco*o-MO~io��<ovi  In the flrst place, Mrs. Boxley struggled with herself prayerfully for upward of a week, and finally, ns frnll  mortals usually do, crushed her better  judgment nnd arose trlumpliunt. In  the second plnce���nml this is a sequence���she took the money whlcli she  hnd been honrdlug for tbe purpose of  a buying Christinas presents for her bus-  band nnd family niul purchased with  lt a camera. Afterward she soothed  lier conscience by the utterance of  vows Internal.  She told herself seriously that she  would give none but photographic gifts  to her friends. She would malte n  booklet for the girls���her Intimate associates beforo M\. Boxley "bad appeared with his little proposal. Some  of tbem were married now, as she  wns; but others, poor things, wove not,  nnd she conceived the Idea ,of sending  to these'unfortunatesDa collection of  pictures taken In her own modest  home, exhibiting Mr. Boxley, lii slippers and smoking jacket: with the  baby, sans vetcment, Juggling a cake  of soap; the dining room, with her  cut glass nnd silver upon the board,  and the baby In his high chnlr shaking a spoon at bis smiling father; the  kitchen, with Its glistening range, and  tho baby sitting up beside it wnrmlug  his tiny feet, and her own bedchamber  ���a dream in white���with the baby  kicking and crowing upon the bed. If  these offerings caused the recipients to  turn green with envy, so much the better. Most of them hnd expressed sentiments derogatory to marriage, ns unmarried women without prospects  often do. -        ���   n  As for the married ones, she would  photograph their several dwellings  secretly and label the collection "Auld  Lang Syne" In gold ink. : And to the  relatives she would send dainty likenesses of the bnby, writing upon each  likeness the words, "With love from  Kobert Greening Boxley, age fourteen  months, weight twenty-two and a half  pounds."  These things, I sny, she purposed do-  ���ug; but none of them did sho do pre  Af.tt    ���  1  THE OLD ELM ON,THE aOLDBY IiAWH.  clsely ns she purposed. The truth Is  that Mrs. Boxley was possessed of the  artistic sense���a remarkable quality  born with people and discovered sooner  or Inter by chance.  ; Possessing tbe artistic sense, she  could not hnve been expected to map  out a plnn and follow It rigidly, Mrs.  Boxley made pictures with her camera  Which nttrncted nttention���glimpses  here and there Into picturesque corners of tho town, artistic little dabs at  Inartistic dwellings, happy groupings  of unsuspecting people, beautiful pre-  : sentments of single objects���like the  ���, old elm on the Goldby lawn that had  been snubbed for fifty years before. It  was not altogether Intentional on her  part to produce artistic effects; sbe  simply saw things from the nrtlstlc  point_of "Ylewpthcro-was-no-speclal-  straln upon her eyes.  Thus it enme to pass tbnt her friends  ���bent, most of them, on the object of  getting something nt a price far below?  tho market���lavished praise upon her  and hinted with monly mouths at the  grntlflcntlon they would experience  were she to run over some day and  just tnke a snap nt their houses or  tholr babies or this, that and the other;  which hints she understood perfectly  and proceeded to turn to prnctlcnl account.7 She gathered.. from . the gabbling of those friends tlint whnt each  of thorn most desired wns a 'photograph  to send to some one lit Christmas time,  a .photograph, or a collection of photographs If the price wero not too high,  which would give Maud or Minnie or  Mnrlon nu Iden of the lovely village In  which thoy lived.  Then It was that Mrs. Boxley, perceiving the demand, set herself to work  upon the tnsk of supplying It. Her  iden was to enter to all the bints at  one fell swoop. And the result wns  the fnmous "Blue Book," a collection  of twenty photographs iu .blue print,  mounted upon excellent paper, bound  In fnncy blue covers mid tied with blue  satin ribbon. These books she sold,  actually sold, at $1.25 for ench copy.  The cnll for them wns such,that she  wns unable to prepare gifts for ber  own absent friends. She worked like  a toy steam engine (Mr. Boxley's sotne-  ' what'satirical simile) to the very dny  before Christmas, nnd then she cast up  accounts.  She had hoped, even ln : ber most  snnguine moments, to make no more  thnn 5115 from the venture���the prl<-e  she had pnld so guiltily for her camera.

Her conscience passed nt  thnt moment Into the calmest and most  delightful slumber. She kissed the  bnby rapturously, and, Mr. Boxley arriving home nt that Instant, she kissed  him nlso nud scattered tenrs ot joy  adown his shirt front.  "Denr ine!" exclaimed Mr. Boxley,  returning the endearment perfunctorily.   "What hns happened tl"  Mrs. Boxley luul indulged In no such  dcinonstrntlons for a number of weeks,  having beeu too fully engrossed with  other mutters; consequently Mr. Box-  ley had fnllen Into the habit of expecting nothing of tlio sort, lie returned  tho kiss In a half hearted, chilling wny,  because he felt thnt It wns not compatible with bis dignity to conduct  himself like a boy who has como, after  n period of undeserved punishment, Into favor again.  "What has happened?" ho repented. -.-  "Eighty-two dollars and twenty-five  cents!" replied his wife, withdrawing  her arms from nbout lils neck.

"He snys," he replied, "that in the  picture���the picture of the house In  your book, heaven bless it!���he notices  a-bunch of roses.

"She has been very miserable; she told me so. But, denr, she  has not given In. Tom will come, aud  she will think it Is lie who has taken  the first step toward reconciliation.

"Didn't she place the roses ln the win-  flow?"   "  "No, dear." Mrs. Boxley gave utterance to a nervous little laugh, half a  sob. "Madge was not at home the day  I took the picture, and���and I placed  the roses in the window myself. And���  and lt was I who sent Tom the book."  Mr. Boxley whistled.

With the city visitors came a  gorgeous carrousel,'.with superb lions,  haughty ostriches and glittering chariots. Jim lost nil interest In other  things, and every spnre moment waa  spent In watching tUe giddy whirls of  the merry go round aud its patrons.  Then came the day of days, when the  youth who collected fares on the carrousel announced thnt he was tired of  country life nud wns going back to the  city. Dismay wns pictured on the fnce  of the proprietor of tho. .carrousel, but  joy filled tbe heart of Jim, who stood  by, watching the dally polishing of the  golden chariots. And. best of all, lt  wus vucntioD season!  Drawing on a supply of latent energy  ~whlcb~b"e~dld~not~drenm~bc"p6ssessed,-  Jlm approached the proprietor.  "Say, If you want a boy, I'd like thnt  job. I can rub up the animals and the  chariots, nnd collect the tickets, nnd  bold on the little ones that's afraid,  and"-  ;Hls list of accomplishments came to  nn abrupt end. The man studied blm  with shrewd but not unkindly eyes.  "Yes, I've noticed you Imaging round  here pretty steady, and I guess you'll  do if your folks arc willing nnd won't  pull you off to do jobs around home.  The uniform will fit you pretty well  too." ..' "  Aud so did Jim spring suddenly into  tbo very limelight of Bergen Mills  publicity. Before the first week hnd  elapsed, be fitted Into bis nook as naturally as If ho bad been In the show  business all his life. He could lean  with easy nonchalance agnlnst the  rods of the carrousel as it whirled  round at a mad pace. He hnd a name  for every animal In the circle. And bis  mother hnd denned the red nnd gold  uniform and polished tho buttons-till  tbey looked like new. ���'���.'.'.���".:'.'���  ��� The dizzy existence lie led might  have caused It; but, somehow, Jim commenced to dream 'dreams and to see  visions. The Chariots were ridden by  fnlry. princesses, dnlnty crenturcs In  white frocks,' flower trimmed bats nnd  gny ribbons, who enme with the summer visitors. And Jim was always tlie  knight who would some day rescue  tbem, when the ostrich should stretch |  his long legs aud spring froni the plat  form, or the Hon, stiffening his tuftetj  ��� tall, sliould leap straight over the,  bends of the gaping spectators. Jim  would fly after them ou his Arabian  charger.  But when August enme panting  down It wus not a matter of fairy  princesses, but just one princess wbo  rode a lion every afternoon, with a  watchful' mnld seated In tho chnrlot  behind her. .1 im felt thnt their positions sliould be reversed. The colored  mnld with n gny turbuu nnd currying  a spear should mount the lion, while  the princess, all ln spangled white with  glittering wings should Bit enthroned  lu the golden chiirlot. Jim told the  Arabian charger all about It, too, nnd  warned thnt astute nnlmal to be ready  for the cnll to arms nt any moment.  One dny while hurrying buck to tho  cnrrouscl from dinner he bud worked  himself up to a fine pitch of enthusiasm over the thrilling situation when  ho wns roused from his reveries by  frightened screams nnd the hoof bents  of a galloping horse. He run Into tho  dusty street, to fnce a plunging horso.  Hanging on to the reins lu tho phaeton  wns the colored mnld! The princess  wns not to bo seen. .-Probably sho wus  crouching In terror nt the feet of her  servant. Could bo do It without tho  Arabian charger? All this pnsscd  through his mind In a llnsh. Tho next  Instant lie was clinging to tho bridle  of the mnddeuod horse���then darkness!  Wheu he woke, he wns lying in a  strange room, with a white enpped  nurse bending over him. Sho felt his  forehead with her cool hnnd an'd'gave  him something to drink, something cold  and delicious. Next enme the doctor,  who nskod him ninny tiresome questions, and his mother, who cried n  great deal nud snid very little, which  proceeding puzzled Jim grently. After  they hnd gone he and the nurse hnd a  long talk, and then he recalled lt all���  the princess, the blnck servnnt and the  plunging horse. And he understood  better why his back nched so.  Somehow the nebe never stopped  night or dny, and Jim wus beginning  to weary of it. One day he astonished  his nurse by exclaiming:  "Say! .I'm kind of sorry I made up  thnt piny. I thought It would bo fun  to ride the Arabinn charger- and save  (he princess, but it's lasting such a  (oug time."  At first the nurse thought he was  delirious again, but when she had asked n few questions she understood it  nil. Later in the day she paid a visit  to this'-superintendent of the hospital  nnd told him nil about the princess,  the servant and the'Arabian'charger.  The very next dny the princess with  her fnther ennic to tho hospital. . She  was a serious young maiden, which  was well, because some dny she would  have a large estate .to manage. She  listened very quietly while the superintendent i and the nurse talked. Tho  latter said, as they rose to leave tho  room:  "Now, remember, whatever else you  say he must not know that it wns only  the colored girl be saved. I think it���it  would break his: henrt."  The princess nodded her head wisely  and forced bnck the tears.: She did not  know why-she felt like crying, except  that she bnd seen something like tenrs  In the nurse's eyes; nnd even her fnther  hnd turned away his head once or  twice during the conference.  Jim almost shouted with delight  when bo saw her. : She: wore the dress  he liked best of all���white lawn with  luce that showed ber pretty shoulders  and nrms. blue . ribbons nnd'; a rose  trimmed lint. They talked;it all over,'  and when she rose to go he said cheerily:  "I'll be bnck to the carrousel very  soon. I think.;.' the Arabian ��� charger  must miss me!"  Then the princess looked at the  nurse and started lu bravely:  "You aren't going back to the enr-  rousel���for awhile. My pnpa Is golug  to take you to town with us���to another���another hospital where they keep  boys with  hurt backs.    There's the  BAD POETRY  QC^DCAUSE  By C. M. Stcvuns  Copyright, 1001, by 0.

"My business is everybody's business, und sometimes otlier  people's business Is uiiue. ���:'''.For instance, you have no honest business  to ride your horses to death as you are  doing."  "I reckon they're our horses," replied  the other man In a surly tone, "and if  we want to ride them to death it don't  cost you nothing."  In the midst of this reply the man  hunter had seen a significant thing  through a narrow line of valleys thnt  stretched nwuy between the hills to  the northwest.
