The  Tribune, is relying on the "solid, vote"  of Mr. Mara to win for Kelson.

"\Ve,havc heen favored hy Mr. Fred.  Fraser, who lceeips the record of the  rise and fall of the Columbia River  foi- the C. P. fR., with the figures for  1S90 to 1S94-. These -show" that although the year 1S9-1 was the onlv one  in late years, when floods caused serious damage to the hanks, we arc annually liable to the same disastrous'resulf s.  Jn lS9-i,,.the water at it's greatest hight  was but 19 feet 7 inches above low  water mark, whereas the total rise was  36 feet 7 inches. The only thing therefore that prevents the river banks from  being totally destroyed, is the fact that  the riyer dties not rise continuously,  but has its reactions or intermediate  falls during the period of high water,  which continues about two months ���������  from the first of May to the last of  June. It will be seen from these records that should hot weather be conu-  tirmous for three weeks we should have  as great.and perhaps a moro disastrous  flood each year than was experienced,  in 1S9-1.    The figures aie as follows :  YEAR..\ .     ,  '   1S00 :   1S!)1   ]S!)2   1S!W   ISOI   It will he  seen from  by these! Hoods, but  anel Frnsor Valleys  elanirer   from  thorn.

It is not alone the Columbia River  Valley that is liable to be annuallv  devastated  Thompson  eepially in  same conditions that, would operate in  the one e.-ius would cause it, in the others.

To avoid the dangers of tln-w- .-iiiihi-  filly recurring flemels, the iii-.st thing to  be considered by lhewe who licite in  these valleys, is by making ^e'eet ions  above the d.ingei-niai k of high   water.

'' \V on't you speak to Lord Roland, Katie  darling?"' she asked in a lone she might  have used to a wistful child ; "speak to  h'ur., dearie, aud tell him you will let him  take you back to your father and to  '   Grace." ,      '      '  ��������� The words made no impression upon her,  though Lord Roland held her haDd tenderly while her nurse was speaking.  it there was a change in her face it, was  it the name of Grace, but,the frown was so  light as scarcely to be perceptible, and be-  ~~ yonel '.lus she might have been a lay figure  for all the heed she paid to the man who  hud once the power above all others to  move her to respond to liis devotion.  "Why is the matter with her? What  has canted this change?" he asked, dejectedly.        ' ,  ."Her mind has been gone since the hour  you last saw her," was the reply ; "but she  is stronger' iu health than Bhe has been  since that dreadful night, and I believe  ' her reason may be restored to herj' Mod.  dern science has'worke'd even greater miracles."      ft' "       '  "It may be���������it may be," assented his  lordship drearily ; " but you have not told  me how she came here.", '        "   ,  "Xo.   When I told my mother s'ne would  not l.glieve  me," replied Frank,  with ill-  ,    concealed  bitterness," but you, who know  what happened before Kate was lost, may  not be so sceptical." ���������   .  " If you doubt me, however, I can take  you to the spot where she fell at my feet.''  " There is no reason why I should doubt  you," replied Lord Roland, sadly. " Lord  Liibuine, who knew' you,well, could not  have spoken more highly of you hail you  been his own son, and it is evident his  daughter has not wanted for kindness at  '  your hands or at those of your mother." ,  "No.      We would grve'our lives   to do  '   Miss Kate a service ; bat'whether 1 acted  widely or not iu bringing  hor here I leave  you   and her father to judge.    I elid   what  I, believed was best." ['  " I am sure you did ; and now tell me  what, happened." ,  Fairfield complied.  fHe   marie no attempt to shield lams-elf,  ot in   any  way to   hi'de the hopeless   love  that  on Christmas night seemed   to gain  ��������� the mastery over him,, ,  " I had no intention of speaking to Mies'  Kate," he said humbly. c" I should hiive  turned away in silence if I had met her face  to face, .but I wanted' to look at her, and  afler I hail wandered around the castle in  the col el for houts, an impulse that I could  not conquer or control.,drove me to'go to  the old tower and get into the building by  the Fecret- entrance I hael used when a  boy." ', ^ ���������  " It is strange that the secret was not  known to Lord Liburne or any of the servants,"observed his lordship.  " Oh no, it was not. I only found it out  by accident, and I kept the secret to myself, for I had a weakness tor poaching  when 1 was a "lad, and I could got in and  out of the castle without being detected.  "Grace Lilburne watched me once, arid  rt was theriil showed her the trap-door and  frightened her, but unless she has explored  it since she does not know that, there is  anything more than a vaulc below."  "And you  ate sure she pushed her sister t'own into that vault?"   >  '- 1 am sure j,hat somebody did so, and  that the  floor0was   closed a second or two  afterward    by a   person   who  must   have '  known  the   trick of   the spring, ' was  the '  I" I wish ber to remain with you until  she regains her reason���������if she ever'does���������  , but where you and she go will, of course,  depend upon the doctors. I am acting  within my right in making these arrangements, for Lord Lilburne gave me permission to marry his daughter whenever I  found her ?"  .   " And you will   marry her if   her mind  comes back  to her ?"  Mrs. Fairfield looked quickly at her son,  but his face, though pale, was calm.  'His love had always been hopeless ; now,  except rn solar as it might do Kate service,  it was dead.     ��������� ���������  This statement, however, was a great  relief lo his mother's mind, since it would  quite do away with n,ny question concerning;  Kate and Frank. ' ,.  Before Lord Poland Ayre' returned to  town he wentinto trie .ocm where Kate  was still seated watching the fire, but she  took no notice of him aud when he clasped  her hand and tried to attract her attention,  bhe shrank from him, aud her indifference  setimed to change to dislike. ������  "She, doesn't know you," said Mrs.  Farrtield, seeing the pained expression of  his face, "and it is best iiotto trouble her.  She will go out lor a. walk in the garden  with mo preseutly, and then she will have  some dinner : she can eat, and drink, nnd is  altogether better. Hut I do so dread an  operation���������I feel eure it  will kill her."  "I do not share your forebodings ;   what  is your sons opinion 7     .  "Oh 1 hi- is like most of the young men  of the time, full of , new-fangled notions,"  ,was the impatient answer.  "I also am a young man, Mrs. Fairfield,  and I agree with your son that the attempt  ought to be. made." ,  CHAPTER X.  I.OVE S   ItEWARD.  Some time had elapsed before Lord Ayre  could engage tho cervices' of a very cele-'  brated doctor, who had already performed  several successful operations of a kinel  similar to that which alone coulel' restore  Kate Lilburne's reason.       * '  The injury which had reduced the baron's  'eldest daughter to a condition little better  than thatot idiocy was, as we know, caused  by her fall, the skull being fractured/-)  A piece of the skull was1 pressing" upon  the brain, and only by relieving this pressure'could the organ of reason be made  once more capable ot acting in a natural  manner. '  . This was, of course, one of the moat difficult operations for mortal man to perform  with safety, for' the bone that was doing  tire mischief had to bo eaweel through  and removed, , but if one particle  of matter fell upon the brain, or if the  membranes in which the important organ is  held were in the slightest degree injured,  then death was , inevitables, and probably  would be instantaneous. ,,  If, however, the bone eiould be removed  effectually and without accrdent, a thm  plate could be fastened over the roxpo3ed  spot, and the patient would in all probability completely recover. ,'  The danger, as wilT'bc seen, was"'very  great, arid 'Mrs. Fairfield over anel over  again entreated that Lord Lilburne should  be consulted before,such a terrible risk ^yas  incurred. '  But Lord Roland's argument was that to  do as the nurse wished woulel be to give his  lordship, unnecessary anxiety and pain  without doing Ins daughter one particle of  good, while ;he accounts which lie inelirect-  ly obtained from Silverton Castle described  Lord Lilburne as generally cheerful and  resigned, though sometimes sad anel anxious  as to the uncertainty of his daughter's fate.  " Her father would, not hesitate tor a  moment," he said,confidently ; "and I wrshi.  to spare him the terrible dread of failure  that haunts me day and night."  As her son was of the same opinion as  Lord Roland, Mrs. Fairfield was obliged to  yield, though sue did so unwillingly aud  against her judgment.  The news of ("irace Lilburne's contemplated m image with 'Sir Victor Gayherd did  more lo reconcile the nurse to Lord Roland's  vieus than anything else, and even when  she heard th'-il the wedding was not to lake  tcr Christmas Day her  aud fie listened with breattih-ss attention  while Fairfield described iiow he wrapped |"  Kale iu his ulster, cairied ner ro the river,  placed her in a boat and brought her  through the darkness and the thickly falling snow all those weaiy miles io nis  mother's house.  Vividly as though he had,.been with him  .the young nobleman seemed to see the  scene, and he ,saiei frankly when Fairfield  paused in Ins narrative :      c  "Ir* I had been you, I   believe T   should  have acted as you did, 'anet   I think' now"  that it was the wisest course   to   take.    If  Grace   really tried to  kill her   sister, 3he  wouid have found  some  means  to accomplish her eud eventually,and in poor Kate's  condition she could neither protect herself j  nor expose the traitress."i.  "���������"Triat. was my feeling with regard to the '  person, whoever he   or she micrht   be, who '  hud heen guiity oi such a piece of   cruelty  ami treachery," responded Frank.  "I knew that Miss Kate musr be serroueiy  injured,"' he wont on, "for such a fall waf 1  enough ro kill her, but I did not for a  moment anticipate that reason would so  completely and permanently de?ert her aii it  has done." .1  Trie <ieprt:s>8riig si'ence that ensued was  broken by Mrs. Farrtield, who expre-.->ed  her opinion that Lord Lilriurne ought to be  anquainte'd with his daujiUor's condinon,  and nn consent obtained to any operation '  that might endanger life.  '   But Lord Roland said positively :  "No; Lord Lilburne has suffered enough, \  ind 'he shock of knowing Kale'? condition,  coupled with thj fact that, in -til probahiity i  Grace !.-. the caiiie of it, might haie a  fatal  offec-t upon him. I  "Resided, he can do nothing that -,ve p,in-  ��������� not do.    I cin obtain the hesr. medical  ind  8iirgrc.il ?l:ill as  well as h"   e->n,  3iid   1 am  euro, Mn. Fairfield, no one e.-iii  nurse  The operation had been completely successful, but it was well not to put too great  a strain upon the newly awakened intellect.  So Kate was persuaded to try to sleep  for a while,' having previously been assured  that everything should be explained to her  in-good time, and Lord Roland-and Frank  went away with the doctors, while Mrs.  Fairfield alone remained to guard her  nursling. ���������   '        ��������� p  " The young lady should be taken to  some quiet place by the sea, and excitement of every kind should be carefully  avoided for several mouths to come," said  the great surgeon who had conducted the  operation.  " For several months!" repeated Lord  Roland, dn~tli3inay : do you mean that  several months must elapse beiore it will  be safe for her to marry ?"  " .Most decidedly," was the reply ; ���������" under very favorable conditious.and provided  she ia kept free fronr.all trouble and anxiety  in tho interval, it may be safe for her to  marry in December, but certainly not before, and it 13 now the end of July." ,  Lord Roland almost groaned. ,  He had arranged all his plans so that if  the operation wore successful his marriage  with Kale might lake place almost immediately, and then he would; gladden the  heart of her father by taking 'her back to  Silverton.  For the sake of the family honor he had  no intention of exposing Grace to public  shame, but he meant to frighten her by'the  urrexpected appearance of her victim, and  by makinir her betray herself, place it completely out of her power to do her siater  any further injury. ������  The doctor's decision, however, seriously  disarranged his lordship's plans, and he  began to think anxiously-aB to whether il  was not his duty to see Lord Lilburne aud  acquaint him with his daughter's safety,  ami with what had happened since they  parted.  But the fear of Grace, the dread that she  might' find some means yet of'getting' rid  of the sister whom it was evident she hated,  made him pause and hesitate, and a second  consideration forced it upon his mind, and  it was, that it Kate returned to her father's  house, it was next to impossible foi her to  have the absolute rest uud quietude that  she woulel iinel elsewhere.  He consulted with Frank Fairfield, and  the young man advised that Lord Lilburne  should not be told anything until Kate  could be taken to his house a bride.  " When once she is your wife she will be  sate," said the young engineer, generously;  "but until you'can protect her with a  husband's authority anel a husband's love  she would be at the mercy of any member  of her family who lives to stand between  you. . If you have any doubt upon the  matter, however, let Kate herself deciele."  " The decision shall reit with her,", was  the reply. ��������� c  Ry the time the arrangements for Kate's  remejyul to the place recommended by Sir  Felix were completed, our. poor heroine was  strong enough to listen to the details of  her,) rescue from the secret vault, and to  understand that Graco and her father, and  all the'world save tho Fairtields and Lord  Roland,,looked upon her as lost, never to  return. ,  "Let them think so still," she decided,  when the situation was explained to her,  "uud when I go to see eiear papa 1 wilt go  with you, Roland."  .So the matter was decided, though Mrs.  Fairfield shook her head over the arrangement, but, she did not refuse to take her  foster-child down to the quiet fishinc village, and remain there with her while Lord  Roland very reluctantly went for a short  tour on the Continent.      *  A Badness which he could not altogether  .throw off even now had settled upon him  immediately after Kate's disappearance,  and lifs story having got about,people called him lord Lovel, and many fair maiden3  did their very best to console him for his  loss.  But he * was singularly blind to their  charms,* fact that woulel not have surprised  them as much as it diel if they could have  seen the rapturous manner in which on his  return lo England ho embraced a girl, who  was strangely like the tost Kate Liihurne.  Strangely like her, indeed. The bloom ot  health ha.i returned to her cheek ; the fearless queenly dignity that ha.i deserted her  with the loss or" reason; but for which she  had been distinguished before that terrible  fail, had comeback to her now, while she  was as winning and'loviug as she had ever  been.        c,  f>"o trace   now  remained of the   terrible  ordeal   which    she   had i recently   passed  by without witnessing Kate's return to her  father's house.  This expectation went a great way toward inducing her to accept "clie invitation  to be Grace Lilburne's bridesmaid, though  at that time she had no intention of bringing the bridegroom as'a truant lover to hor  own feet.  Trie strength of their old love, however,  proved too strong for Miriam and Sir Victor  to withstand, and they were both resolving  that this marriage with Grace mu3t be'pre;  vented, when.as already narrated, the doors  were thrown open and Lord and Laely Roland Ayre appeared on the threshold.  CHAPTER XL  '        f, RETRIBUTION".  Lord Lilburne caught Kato in his arms,  and expressed his delight at seeing her,  then he grasped Lord Roland's hand and  bade him also welcome. '  "Vou see, I have taken you at your  word," said the bridegroom, gayly. "Kate  and 1 'were married more than a week ago."  ," A week!" echoed the baron j "but,  where has she been all the past year 5"  " That is too long a story to tell now,"  was tho reply ; "but where is Grace ?"  In the general delight at welcoming back  the lost heiress aud the new bride'Graco  had for the moment been forgotten.  But they had not far io seek for her.  There, in'their midst, she lay like one  strickon,,wilh death, and people looked at  each' other curiously as they lifted her, for  this sudden swoon looked moro like tho  consequence of fear than the effect of joy.  ��������� "Take her to her room, she has only  fainted," said Lord Lilburne to tho servants  who were called. , '( '  '  The order was quickly obeyed/Sir Victor  somewhat carelessly giving his assistance.  But her father aud friends noticed that  of the Lilburnes was lost and could not be  found.  Grace sat up in bed, and wondered if  the past year had been a dream ; but the  sight of her wedding dress spread out on a  couch at the further end of the' room con-'  vinced her of the reality' of all that had  passed.    .  Rut  she would not or could  not think,  neither would she' allow   herself to realize  the possibility   that  Kate's return would  in any  way interfere  with  her own mar-  -rijge.  f-hi meant to carry'everything with a  high hand, to'* defy her sister and her  sister's husband to prove anything against  her. , "  In this frn-:o of mind she rang'for her  morning cup of tea, and the maid brought  the tray, on which, besides the tea and  toast, there was a carefully sealed  note.  For a second or two she did not break the  seal, but when the waiting, woman had left  the rqom she tore the letter open wildly  and read its brief contents.  "Your own conscience, Grace Lilburne,  will probably tell you,why, I refuse to fulfil  my engagement to marry you this morning.  I offer no further explanation or excuse for  the step I am about to take, but am ready  to bear all consequences which ,you or anybody belonging to you may think���������fit to  inflict lrpon me. ]$y the time this reaches  you I shall boon'my way to London, where,  as soon as tire law will permit, Miriam  Hind man will become my wire."  This was sigired ."Victor Gayherd," and  had evieieruly been written with a 'total  disregard for the,feelings of the wretched  girl to whom it was addressed.  Her reason had been tottering on its  throne for some months past.though neither  Grace nor her friends know it, and now the  last5=bolc^had-f.-.l!G:;r=and   sho started  ABOUT THE HOUSE  up  neither did she offer  in   any  way to help j  her.  ,, ,   ���������  , ,        , , . madly from her beel a wild   and dancerous  Kate showed no sympathy, for her sister,    maniac.      '    ' '  Tho servants met her as she was on her  way,shrieking and gesticulating frantically,  to the disused tower.  They secured her,and a doctor was sent  for, and all that care an'd'skil^could do for  her was done, but nothing could save tho  unhappy girl. ���������  For a few day3she lingered iu great pain  and mental agony, but as the old year was  dying she likewise drifted away into the  uuknown.  Her death was a rolief to all who,were  connected with her.'        , ���������  Another year swiftly passes by anel  Chrisimas Day is again upon us.  ' But this day is the brightest'of all'the  three for Kato and her husband and her  father. ;  To tho baron a, grandson hai been born  who will bear his name, anel one, day will  succceel to hfs title, and the old peer is, if  possible", moro proud of tho tiny boy than  are his fond*parents. . ' ' '  '  Nothing, indeed, is wanting to complete  Kate's perfect happiness, though even now  she sometimes rerriombers with,a shudder  that awful moment when she was a victim  to heartless treachery.

This was very unlike tho Kate of former  days. ' i  'Then she had been tho first to hasten to  the side of the suffering aiid to try to  assuage their pain.  But now she only looked after her sister  with an expression on her face of wondering  pity not unmixed with aversion, and she  neither tried to caress nor revive her. '  Tne ��������� curiosity of the guests, however,  was not to 'be restrained, aud so many  questions poured in upon our heroine that  she at length briefly told her friends, that  in fintling a hiding-place the previous  Christmas she had fallen down a trap door  in tho disused tower, and would.have remained there; and perished, if her foster-  brother hael not rescued hor.  And then Lord Roland told the rest of  the story, even down to the present day.  "There is something sho has not told  us," said Miriam Hindmau to Sir Victor  Gayherd ; " she has not told us what hand  Graco had in her disappearance. Depend  upon it, we have only- heard half the  story."    .  Miriam's curiosity was not satisfied, however ; only Lord Lilburne was ever told  how Grace- had consigned her^sister to  what/she believed would be hor tomb.  By this timeia servant came to say that  Miss Grace was conscious, but would not  leave her room again that night, though  idle requested her guests would not let her  absence interfere with their amusement.  They took her at her word ; tho dancing  recommenced, aud no one seemed to miss  the girl who had been hostess until now,  aud who to-morrow was toboa bride.  In view of tho ceremony of the morrow,  the partv broke up soon after the arrival of  Lord and Lady Roland Ayre '   '  Those guests who were not.staying in tho  house took their leave, and these who wcro  want off to their rooms. ' -  Sir Victor Gayherd alone lingered.  Lord Rolar.d was his ccusiu, and he trieel  to find out from him the motive which had  made .Kate kesp  even hor. father in ignorance of her existence so long a time.  " I cannot  tell you  why, but  we had a  very goid reason," was the evasive reply.  " Had   Grace  anything to do  with it?"  was the next question.  1   " Grace elid nol know, that her sister was  alive any more,than you elid."  " Probably not; she assured me she was  dead; but thht is no answer to my question. Did Grace know that her sister had  fallen through this trap-door ?"  " I cannot toll you���������I can tell you noth-  ing-"  "I think is very unfair of you not to toll  me; do you know I am expected to marry  (he girl to-morrow.  " 1 would rather you than I; but question  her yourdelf if you have any doubt."  " Oh, I know what her answer will be ;  she is not too careful of the truth, and,  though she is not the great heiress she was  supposed to be, still, as I have i/oue so far,  I wouldn't draw back now if I were con-  vinceel that sho was innocent of all guilty  knowledge of what had befallen her sister."  Lord Roland made no reply.  He felt sorry for his kinsman, but ho had  promised Kate not to expose her sister.and  he felt that he must keep his word to his  wife whatever happened to his cousin.   , *  " I'll ask Lady Roland herself," exclaimed Sir Victor, passionately.  "Von will do nothing of the kinel, my  dear fellow," said his lordship, firmly; "my  wife has hael quitrf enough to go through  without being cross-quoitioned about hor  Hicter.  " Use your own judgment n the matter.  It I loved a woman I should want nobody  ehc to tell mo whether to believe in hor or  not."  I    '" And what  if  you didn't   lovo   her ?'  asked Sir Victor, grimly.

A despatch from St. Catharines, saysi���������  Mr. Walter T. Duncan, brother-in-law of  Mr. James Robertson, of tho Globe hotel,  Queen8tou station, dropped dead- shortly  before uoou ou Monday in the yard of tho  hotel. He and eight or ten others around  the hotel wore out in tho yard this morning  throwing a heavy stone, jumping, etc.,and  then several of those presont began stooping over, touching the ' ground at their  toes without bending their legs. Duncan  put tho palms of his hands on the ground  in this way, aud after some of the others  had done the sumo, Mr. Duncan stood on a  stone about three inches high and again  touchod the ground. He then straightened  up, and went over to meet a horse that had  just come in, and' when he reached the  horse's head lie fell to the ground. Mr.  Georgo Robertson called to his brother  James, and they curried him into the house,  bub lie never spoke, arrel was dead almost  instantly. <  Possibilities of Pie Plant.  "I never dreamed that so delicious a pie  could be made from canned pie plant, you  ought to, give others the benefit of your  experience in making,the most of what is  eo little appreciated, and by-the-by, if you  do, don't fail to tell them- how you make  pie crust, for I never ate any that suited  me quite so well as yours."  My guest stimulated me to that extent  that I will pass on to other housewives the  different ways of uBingrie-plant���������an article  that little use is made of beyond making- a  few pies in the spring, says a correspondent.  With quantities of it going to waste in  their own gardens, many buy expensive ,���������  fruits which might be largely saved by a  little lorethought. These hard times noth-  ing should be allowed to go to waste, not  even "pie-plant which with the opening  spring is abundant and cheap.    ,  Jelly.���������At this season of the year-the  supply of jelly runs short, and but few  housekeepers seem to know that pie-plant  made according to any good jelly recipe, is  a good substitute for currant and other tart  jellies to eal with meat, but it is far more  palatable, and much firmer, mado'with an-  equal part of apple.  ..Last spring in cleaning the cellar the man  brought  up  a peck or moro of shrivelled,  tasteless   apples,   saying :  " They   are  no  good, I will put them with   the  garbage."  ,  But "Waste not, want not," being one of  ,  my mottoes, I  rescued them,  and cut up  the apples that looked hardly worthy the  name���������cooked with equal parts of pie-plant,'  not peeled���������to a pint of the juice I added a ,  pint orfsugar.'and boiled twenty minutes,  and  presto ! jelly  that   any   housekeeper  would relish, onel, be proud of,' too.     The  combination   was perfect,   the  tartness of  the pie-plant supplying that lacking in the  apple,the latter giving tho desired firmness.  ' Canning���������The simplest and host way is  to wipe well.'ciit'up in small pieces without  peeling,    place   uncooked   in   glass   cans,  '  and   fill   to the brim wilh cold water, and  seal up,  the  secret of  keeping being   the  acid supplied by tho pie-plaut.    Being ������o ���������  little trouble I put  up in   this way until  lato in  tlie season when it becomes pithy >  and tasteless.    It  can   be   used in   many  ways.   ,- "'    i ,  Sauce.���������Tho fresh or canned pie-plant ���������-  makes excellent sauce, ' sweotoneel and  baked ;,it keeps its form, hence is more  pleasing to the eye than when stewed to a  mush, anel is richer to the taste as well. ' It  is also nrce ciirofully steamed,aud rich syrup"  added. c ,       '       '  , Cake Filling.���������One cupful of pie-plant,  either green or canned, stewed; one cupful  elf sugar, one egg well beaten.  Pie.���������One cupful of stewed'pie plant,  one cupful of sugar, one tubleBpoontul of  ,flour, yolk of one egg, flavor with lemon,  frost with the while of egg .beaten to a  still' froth and two' tablespooufuls of pul-  veriz'ed'sugar added. ��������� In using the caured  pie-plant for pies, ic is necessary ' io drain '  all the juico from it.  Pro Crust.���������You may not agree with my  guest aB to the following pio crust, but if .-1  you are , not satisfied with your own  "method it may pleaso you; it does me  better than any I over tried. I obtained it  fiom an old housekeeper, whose p.e crust  was always perfect." The formula sounds  strange, but it is most' satisfactory if  properly niado. For two pies take one  cupful of lard, put it in a small earthen  dish, and melt till it is like smooth thick -  cream. Sift flour into a dish and make a  hollow in the centre, and a littlo salt; into  this pourlhe lard, stirring it well with the  water, then quickly stir in all tho' flour it  will take up. Tho work has to be done  very rapidly after the iarel touched tbe-  cold water, for it hardens very quickly,  nnd then will not take up sufficient flour,  anel will bo too rich. I expect you will  sny as I did: "What a queer way to make  pie crust;-' but I tried it, and now it is  "my   way."  Rusty Black Goods  Rusty black goods may ho rnado to look  as good as now by tho following  process :  To   one   pailful   of    soft   hot water   add  one   teaepoonful    of   soft   soap  and   two  liiblespooufula of extract of .logwood.   Have  the goods ripped, freo from dust and washed, and while still wet put in the mixture,.  which should   bo kept  quite hot, ��������� stirring  and ailing often, as in   all dyeing.    At the  oriel of two  hours   or longer,   according' tq  the result   desired,    hang  out of   doors to"  drain, then rinse and iron while elamp,   as  before directed.    If the   cloth   is   double  width, iron a fold'down the middle of ouch  breadth, as in new goods.  Black cashmere,  etc., may also lie renovated by washing in ���������  strong borax water, and rinsing in t water  made very dark by the   free use of the bluing .bag. In removing spots from any Hack  goods, make all-applications by means of a  picce,of black cloth, aa by this   means the  linty look is avoided, which rs sure to follow  the use of a- white cloth for this purpose.

This story- commences  in the  white  langes of Switzerland, that'wcnderland  of beauty, and on a mountain pass, up  which  iwo young men were climbing,  had gone on smoothly, he'would have  have pursued! their callings, and laid  the- foundation for substantial fortunes.  Not the least prosperous among- them  was Richard .Inglefield, a 'merchant  who dealt in produce 'of many kinds,  knapsack on shoulder and alpenstock 'and carried on a large exporting  in hand. Their nnmss were Richard , trade. He had one daughter, who at  Inglefield and Batil .Per.rhyn. And'(this period was eighteen years of age,  toilsome as was lhe path, its difficulties 'he being forty-two.  The circumstances  were encountered and made light of in  the blithest of-spirits. These young  men were well-to-do in the world, had  been at school together,' were firm  friends, and were now enjoying a holiday tour in0summer weather, and with  summer in their hearts. They had not  entered Into the serious ��������� business of  life ;* the glamour of youth was upon  them ; and, although, as will hereafter  be seen, there wru more of prose than  poetry in at least one of thfeir natures,  they were indulging in dreams wilh an  earnestness which bore the stamp of  sincerity, though it-proved to be evan-  " c-scent."  They had slept the night before in a  small inn, in which, as is usual in  Switzerland, comfort, cleanliness and  plenty reigned ; and they were recalling  the images of two persons they hael  met���������a, mother and her, daughter���������the  contrast in whose "appearance was so  marked as to have produced in the  niinds of the young men a kinel of wonder���������the1 mother being worn, haggard,  and unsightly, tr.d the daughter fresh  and beautiful as spring. A sort of  fr-jeni51y>jiuimac.v, which in Continental  ,trnvel is often horn and dies In an  hour, had heen established between the  twain of each sex, anel the mother had  shown to the young men a picture of'  herself at seventeen years of age, which  was so like her daughter that it mig'it  well have passed for the young girl's  pert rait. ' >���������  " It seems," ,-iaid Basil :Penrhyn, " as  if it wei-; Impossible tha!t tliat haggard-  faced woman should once have been  so fair and beautiful." .  , ,        ���������  "In all piobabllity," said Richard Inglefleld, " the daughter, when she  ..grows to her mother's age,' will.be  as haggard and y.-rniiUed. If that is  'generally the case, it, serves to prove  that we are in the present ,very unfaithful likenesses of ourselves in the  ',    future."        '  "Our faces may,change," said Basil  , ,-   "but not our hearts."  " Xot mine,* I  am sure," said Ingle-  field.  " Nor mine." saiel Basil. ^  They rested ' here, and sat hy the  s-icie of a mountain stream, fefl, by a  laughing, babbling waterfall, for the  purpose of partaking of food and wine,  which they carried with them. They  poured out the wine and clinked their  horn drinking cups, and toasted themselves'.  -    " To yju,"  said  Basil.  "To you,"  saiel Richard.  "And to our friendship," said Basil.  " Never to end," said Rrchard, "while  we live." .   , " ���������  There came from a hush close hy the  mocking note of a bird, which caused  the young men to look at, each other  fl nd'1 laugh. ��������� ���������  "If that bird could speak," remarked Basil, " we should probably hear  a ver? ' unfavorable, '-estimate of our  Sincerity. 'Words, .words, words,' as  Hamlet says." ���������  " That wouldn't render it a just estimate," vsalel his companion. "For  my part, Basil, when 1 say that I hope  our friendship will last all our lives  I am really and truly sincere."  So speak -the young ; so believe the  young.   , The drama of " Damon and  Pythias" is one played very frequently by cultured lads,  to whom us symbol   of  friendship   is  exceedingly  captivating ; but it is ever an uncompleted  drama,   for   the   curtain   falls,   if   not  at   the   moment,, very  soon   after   the  serious  work of life has  commenced.  It opens with a grand flourish of trumpets,  with  quickened pulses,  with  fervid protestations, with eager looks and  words, but after the first  flush  of excitement and  enthusiasm,  it gradually  trails off into the reginri of forgetful-  nfss and oblivion,    -Perhaps it is besl  not'to deplore too deeply this termination ;   perhaps  it  is   best   not   to   take  things too5'seriously.     Nature teaches  the   philosophy   of   enjoyment,   and   so  long as it is Innocent there is but little  W'bdom In turning a -2)1111 lish face upon  .trie pleasures she offers with'so liberal  a hand.     If they are evanescent, what  then ?     Others immediately take iliei,-  p'ace.      Spring,  summer, autumn and  winter,   each   season  is  filled  with  its  own  special delights and  beauties for  the enjoyment of mankind.      So with  our moral natures ; each season of life  brings its own gladness,  its own sunshine,  and if perfect faithfulness and  constancy are rare, the fault piobably  comes more from our outer than our  inner lives.  1  Richard Inglefield and Basil Penrhyn  telicved themselves to be sincere, anil  this   conviction   was  su/jielent, during  ��������� their   holkiay   tour   to   fill   their   days  f with joy.  " 1 wonder," said Basil, " whether we  shall ever marry."  "If I marry," said Richard, "it shall  be for lovo."  "And 1." said Basil.  "If we could marry two sisters,  now," sard Richard, with a light lauglr|  " it would bring us ev.:-n closer together."        0  They played upon the theme, half  sr.oriively, half in eai-.iest, and drew  many pleasant pictures of their future.  Had a. wizard shown them "what that  future v.-as to be and what pictures  were to occupy the place of those thoy  drew, they would have looked upon  (lic-irr wrtlr incredulity, and declared It  could never be. It is well that the  veil should be drawn before the to-  tioitow, otherwise ir.iny a pleasant  rc.tir   would  bo  "in bl tiered*.  For three happy months the young  n.cn travelled in company, anel when  they returned to ICnglanel. it was with  tho assurance thnt the e'liain of friend-  chip the*y had forged could never be  trokerr.  of his having married when he was but  a young 0man was regirded hy those  who thought they knew him best-as'  cue of the very few unwise acts which  could, be Jcid to his account. But,  wise or unwise, he married in his  twenty-third year, .and- (strangely  enough in a m*in who hael yarned the  reputation of thinking of little else  but making money), he married for  love, as he had declared to Basil Penrhyn he would : arid whether it were  wise or unwise', anil whether if things  awakened from his romantic dream  only to deplore it, is not in the power  of any man to say. Fate snapped the  thread for'Richard Ingl-afield���������the golden thread of Jove, . for within a few'  months of the birth of his little daughter Rachel, lie k.. .-ed for the last time  the cold lips ot the wife who was never  more to brighten his home with her  pleasant ways. '  His  grief   was    poignant,,   and    he  mourned   her   witli   passing   sincerity,  hut the cares of his business pressed  heavily   upon   him,   and. in   the   busy  routine   of' his 'olllce   he 'sought   and  found a substitute for love.     This substitute, may be described not as money,  but as more money���������an absprbing occupation,   in  which   the sweeter joys  of  life are often engulfed, and', sometimes  lost  forever.     ,So  absorbing,    indeed,  did Richard Inglefield find it,  that he  had no time  to devote to  the rearing  and   educating   of   his   little   daughter,  Juid ho sent her into Shropshire,  to a!  maiden   sister, ' who     undertook     the  charge  of  the r child,   and   really   anel  truly did her duty by her.     That Rachel's mother had.been_a pure and good  woman,, with  a sweet disposition  and  a sympathetic nature, which delighted  in kindly acts, wa? of course of advantage to the orphan, and I have no doubt  that Rachel, if she had been given to  deep   thought,   would   have  felt   truly  grateful for her inheritance "of'virtue  find    goodness    of heart.      Unhappily  ', there are in the world too many  who  are born into an inheritance which can  scarcely fail to lead their steps toward  the     downward     path���������the     path     of  shame.  ' But, apart frjm'the fact that'  Rachel,  by  fortune' of  birth,  was  endowed   with   sweet'  and   kindly   dualities, she'had the advantage of possessing in Aunt Carry  one ,w*ho 'worthily  filled   the  jjlaee  of   her   dead   mother.  True, Aunt Carrie was a spinster, and'  not young-; true, she had'in early days  a heart-disappointment, which saddened   and   weighed   heavily   upon   her'';  true, that in  these  circumstances she  should, according to popular idea,   have  been sour, shrewish, snappish, and severe ;   and,   also   according   to , popular  iC.en,   lhat  she   should   have  exercisea  tnesd disagreeable  qualities  upon  hor  niece, to llio child's misery and discomfort.      But  it happened,   and   happily  Happened,  that in    this    instance  the  popular  idea  was   wrong,   as   it   is  in  many other large and more important  instances.     Under Aunt Carrie's training  Rachel   grew   to   be   a   sweet  and  lovable girl, ripening to a womanhood  which would  surely  in  good time be-  ccrne   the  light   of   some   good   man's  home.      All,,who knew her loved'her.  Near to Aunt Carrie's house was an  Institution  dating some   three or  four  hundred   years   back,   in   which   some  very cild people of both sexes found a  resting  place  for  the 'latter' days   of  their life.     They were poor pensioners,  grateful   for1 any   trifle,   and   Rachel's  kindness  endeared   her  to   them ;  but,  indeed, she was adored by all the poor  people of' the  neighborhood,   to  whom  she fwas  a.  sure  and   constant  friend  rn   trouble *and   sickness.      This, may  be regarded by some as a small matter  to  mention,  but' it is really of unimportance, because it 'touches with a  firm   sure hand the very heart of humanity.  Meanwhile. Richard Inglefield  thrived   and   prospered   in   the   world,   and  every yetr added to his wealth. Twice  in every twelve months he visited his  maiden sister in Shropshire, and spent  a few hours with her rind  his daughter.      He  was kind   to Rachel  in   his  own pe'cullar way,  never going to see  her without taking her some little present" ; but for the: cementing of strong  bonds  of love    something    more  was  needed than such few and far between  visits.      The Iocs and  the  misfortune  were  of   his  own   creating.

In the governments of Perm.Uta, Orenburg and Samara, in East Russia,  drinks are to be sold only by the Slate.  The vote recently taken in the Maine  Legislature on the cruestion of resubmission of the prohibitory law was  13 .for and 114 against.  A saloon keeper should not be allowed to sit on a jury or vote. A man  who is so morally degradeel as to engage in selling for his own selfish  gain that which he knows robs mm  of their reason, injures' their bodies,  and destroys their souls, is ��������� not to be  trusted with the affaiis and fortunes  either of individuals or of this -great  nation.���������Judge' Randolph.  A man in an Ohio town failed in the  dry goods business, and tried to retrieve his fortunes by, going into tho  saloon business. His wife opposed,  but to no purpose. He opened his  "place," arrd his resourceful wife argued that if the barroom was a good  place for her husband, it was a good  place for her. So she dressed herself  in her finest, and took her workbox  and sat down hy the bar, to keep her  husband company. The presence of a  cultivated lady froze out the thirsty  patrons, and the husband was soon  forced to quit the business.  ,     ,        ,  Gen. O. O. Howard tells the following incident, in illustration of the  power of a kind anel helpful word. It  was at Fair Oakes, in 1SG2, at which  fiattle Gen. Howard's, right arm w'as  shot  through.      He   says<:  As 1 was making my way to the  hospital, weak from loss-of blood and  from pain, I saw' a young man intoxicated. He was so under the influence  of whisky that,ho could hardly walk.  As T came near him, I' stopped long  enough to tell him it diel not pay to  drink; it would ruin him and he had  better, stop before the habit had control of him. , -I passed on to the hospital, had my arm attended to, anel was  sent home to recover. 1 saw or heard  nothing more of the drunken soldier  until a short time ago, when a letter  from an officer in AVashington told me  his subsequent history. Impressed by  the fact that in my wounded condition  T had taken enough interest in him to  stop and give him advice, he had,then  and there resolved to quit drinking. Ho  kept his resolution, and when ,the war  was over, settled, down ' to a life'nf  steady, honest work. He gradually  rose, anel 'the letter from Washington  told me he had" just: died a judge on  the Supreme , bench, in the State of  New Hampshire, one of tlie foremost  in "the commonwealth.

T can't undertake here to  quote from these electric pages; but  without endorsing everything in D.  Parkhurst's book, I do hope it will be  read by pur preachers, and by, thousands of our young people., The chapter 'on "The Pulpit and ^Polities" is  red-hot English. Here is a' sentence  or two that I will quote .*  "And L' am  saying what  I know.  I  uttered only (thirty  minutes of indictment against the blood-sucking scoundrels   that   are   draining   the   veins   of  our body municipal, anel they were all  set wriggling, like a lot of Muckworms  in a hot shovel.'   I am not such a fool  as to suppose that it' was the man that  saiel it that elid the work; nor'that'it  was what was said that did the work,  for it had been .said a hundred  times  before with-more of thoroughness and  detail.     It was ihe pulpit that did the  work. .Tournalistic roasting, there -vagabonds  will  enjoy and grow cool over.  "But when  It is clear that the  man  who  speaks  it  is  speaking  it not' for  the purpose of putting money into his  pocket  or   power  into   his   party,   but  is speaking it because it is true, and  in speaking it appreciates his oracular  authoity as one commissioned of God  to speak it,   there  is  a   suggestion  of  the Judgment Day'aboirl it, there is a  presentiment of the invisible God back  of-it that knots th'e stringy conscience  'of   thpse   fellows   into   contortions   of  terror.

He who *s  on the wrong road is continually losing time. "lie who goes in the direction of. the right gains both in time  and opportunity.  A young man for several months neglected his Christian duties, leading a  careless life anel paying little attention  to the ordinances and institutions tf  the house of God. During this time  in-" called upon a deacon of the church,  who was a watchmaker, and asked  him to repair his watch.  "What is the difficulty with your  watch ?" said the deacon.  "It has lost time lately," said tlie  young  man.  The df.'icon looked up to him with a  steady, significant e-yr- and saiel :  "Have-n't yon ]()}tt lime lately 1"    '  These five words brought    the careless young man to a halt, and eventually back to  the church and  to elutv.  If -eve- would avoid  losing time, let us j  keep'our faces, in the direction of duty  The West Bow of Ediuburgh was then,  aud still is, a,steep and windiDg street  leading from the Lawn Market to the Grass  Market, which lies in the valley to the  souih'east of the Castle���������a portion of the  city associated with some of the most Btir-  ring events in the'civic history of the capital of Scotland.  The Major was a tall and porLly man,  with grim and even saturnine features, anel  a   large   nose,, and he  generally'walked  forth  wearing  a black   cloak.    He  was ii  i 3  bachelor, and his sister, Jean Weir resided  with,   and kept house for, him. '  This portion or* the city was, about the  end of the 17th century, inhabited by,a  number of very strict and religious people,  zealbts, in fact', who were termed' the  Bowhead Saints,' and among whom -the  Major posed as a man of great '.unction  and piety, having a splendid "gift of pray*  er," He had a long " staff" made of thorn  tree, with a crooked head, and which h������  always, carried about with him ; and it was  observed that when he prayed he always  put  the staff* to his mouth,' as   it were,, to  aid him in pouring out his supplications to  the Almighty.

He then made confession of a series cf  horrible and unmentionable crimes anel  offences committed by him in Edinburgh and  elsewhere during thepreviouc halt'ceuttiry,  giving full partrculars of his guilt, with the  result that both he and his sister (who was  also implicated) were apprehended and  lodged in the Edinburgh Tolbooth, to tho  great scandal and astonishment of the oify.  The Major was thereafter charged, upon  his own confession, with all these horrible  crimes and misdemeanours, and his sister  was also indicted as having been "art* and  part," i.e., mixed up with 6orne of them,  besides being guilty of witchcraft, sorcery,  and incantation.  In ihe course of the trial which followed  it came out that Major Weir admitted  having a compact witn tho devil, who had  undertaken to keep him " skaithless"  (llormless) from all earthly ill "except one  burn," and the Major was extremely ap-  prehensive ct fire' or of crossing a "burn"  (small rivulet,), so much so, that he would  often turn back rather than cross nny  running wu'er. He admitted that" hi?  celebrated "staff" was a powerful agent or  ihe unseen adversary ot mankind, as it.

Being interrogated as to whether he ever had personal  intercourse with thedevii, rhe Major replied  in lhe negative, saying "any feeling he bad  of hiB presence was in lhe darkness."  *  Tho result of    trie   trial   was    that the  Major and his sister were, in  April,  1670,  both condemned to death on thesca!fold,tinil  Tiirtiii lionrns to in-: iii;kni:i),  Although  ,tbe   singular   man   and   his J anfl Xew Orleans actor  wretched"sister and   accomplice  paid   the ' "?" t0 form a nai'inuU alliance.  ,  last penalty of the law at the close of the 1    The   ]iU-   Chancellor   Briscoe,   Vicar  '17th century, so great'was the horror   felt,01   Holyhead,  England,   left  his entire  in the cily at therr  mysteiious crimes and | fortune   of   ]0,000   pounds   10   the  poor  admitted connection  with the   devil   that j of  that city.  their house in .the West Bow lernaineil | The Earl of Jersey owns a margarine  unoccupied for generations, while the j factory near London winch turns out  c-rtizens of Edinburgh, and especially those j 17j,0u0 pounds of butter substitute per  residents   inn the   vicinity   of   ihe   Lawn ' day.
