(Continued.)  "This is number 21," said "my conductor, pointing to the door before  which ho stood.  [ rewarded him, and then turned  my attention to tho door indicated.  Having rapped wlih mv Knuckles  upon the panel, I waited for It to be  (���������i.eucd to me. Rut tlmso inslrlo were  In no hurry, and for this reason some  minutes elapsed before I heard anyone  moving about; then there came the  sound of shuffling foot, and next mo-  irent the door was o;>e.ued an inch or  two, and a female voico -arjuiied with  an oath���������which I will omit���������what was  wanted and who was wanting it.  To the firsc query I, ro"h������>d by asking if Levi Solomon lived there, nnd,  i' he did, whether I could see him.  Tho second I shirked altogether. In  answer 1 was informed that Levi Solo-  v on did reside there, and Unit If I  was tho gentleman who had called to  see him about a hansom cab I was to  cop-e in at once.  The door wns opened to me, and I  Immodlatelv stopped Into the grimiest, most evil smell'ng passage It has  over been ivy ill luev to sot foot In.  Tho walls were soiled and stained almost beyond reco- nitioi; the floor  was llttcro'l with ora-ge peel, paper,  cabbage leaves, and garbage o������ all  sorts and descriptions, while the  stench that greeted me baffles description. I have sever smelled anything like it before, and I hope I may  never do so again.  The most 1 can say for the old ladv  ���������who admitted me is that she matched  her surroundings.  She was short almost to dwarfishncss, well-nigh bald,  and had lost her left eye. Her dress  consisted of a ragged   skirt,   and   in  placo of a body���������I believe that Is the  technical    expression���������she    wore    a  man's coat, which gave   a   finishing  touch of comicality  to   the   peculiar  ,     outline of her figure. As soon as she  saw that I had entered, she bade me  shut the door behind me and follow  ,'_   her. This I did by means of a dilapi-  . dated staircase, in which almost evePy  step was  take i a', the risk of one's  life, to the second floor. Having arrived there, she knocked upon a door  facing her; and I noticed that it was  not until she had been ordered to on-  r������r that she ventured to turn the L>ti-  die.  "The gentleman   what   has   come  -'bout the 'ansom keb," she said, as  ' " ushered me into the room,  'he apartment was lit by two can-  .s stuck In their own wax upon a  otle deal table, and by their rays I  .  'could distinguish the man I had come  in search of standing bv the fireplace  awaiting me. He did r.ot greet me until he had made certain, by listening  at the keyhole, that the  old   woman  had gone downstairs. He was a quaint  r little fellow, Jewish from the soles of  his feet to the top of his head. He had  the nose of his race, little beadv eyes  as sharp as gimlets, and a long beard  ���������which a little washing   might   have  made white. He  was   dressed   in   a  black frock coat two sizes too large  for him, black trousers   that   would  have fitted a man three times his size,  and boots that had been patched and  otherwise repaired till their   original  maker would not have   known   them  again.  "Mr. Pennethorne, I presume," he  began, rubbing his hands together and  speaking as if ho had a bad cold in  his head. "I am delighted to see you.  I am sorry that I cannot ask you to  sit down, but I have no chair to give  you. For the same reason I cannot  offer you refreshment. Have you had i  a good look at me?"  My surprise at this abrupt question  prevented my replying for a moment;  then I insinuated that I thought I  should know 'him again, after which,  with a muttered "That's all right," he  blew out one of the candles, remarking that, as we now knew each other,  we could conduct our business quite  as well with half the light.  "I received- word from our mutual  acquaintance Dr. Nikola this morning," he began, when the illumination j  had been thus curtailed, "that you  would bp coming to see me. Of course  I did not ask the business, for Dr.  Nikola is my friend, and T obey and  trust him to the letter. By his instructions I am to fit you with a disguise,  and then to take you to the place  where you will discover a certain hansom cab awaiting you."  I nodded. At the very mention of  the cab my old hatred of Bartrand  sprang up again, and I began to question the Jew as to where we were to  find it and what f was to do when I  had got it. But this impetuosity did  not meet with his approval.  "My young friend, you must not be  in such a hurry," he said, wagging  his head deprecatingly at me. "We  shall have to be sure we make no mistake otherwise the doctor would not  be pleased, and I should not like to  risk that. Have you known Dr. Nikola  very long?"  "I met him this morning for the  first time In my life," I answered,  realizing on what Intimate terms we  now stood, considering the length of  our acquaintance  "If that is so you have much to  learn regarding him," the Jew replied.  "Let us be very careful that we do  not risk his displeasure. Now we will  get to work, for it is nearly time for  us to be going.''  As he spoke ho crossed to a cupboard in the corner of the room, and  took from it some garments which  he placed upon the table in the centre.  "Hero we have the very Identical  things," he said, "and when you've  got them on, you'll be as smart a cabby as any that mounts his box In the  streets of London. Try this and see  how It suits you."  He handed me a bushy black beard,  which worked on springs, and assisted me to fasten it to i..y face. When  It was made secure ho stepned back  and examined it critically; than with  a muttered "that will do," turned to  the garments on the table, and selected from the heap a. tarpaulin capo,  such as cabmen wear in wet weather.  This I fixed round my shoulders. A  sou'wester was next placed upon my  head, and when this was done, as far  as I was concernod, we were ready to  be oft*. My curious acquaintance was  not/long In making his toilet, and five  minutes biter found us passing out of  tho filthy alley into Groat Guntcr  Street once more.  "I'll go first," said the Jew. "You  follow two or three paces behind mo.  It,'*' lust pja well wc should not be seen  'together."  I accordingly took my positon a  few steps in the roar, and in this fashion dodged along behind him. until  vvp reached the corner of Wardour and  Pultnoy Streets. Here my guide stop-  pod and looked about him. Evidently  what he wanted was not forthcoming,  for he began to grow uneasy, and  stamped up and down the pavement,  looking eagerly in each direction. All  the time I did not venture to approach  ���������him. i was considering what I was  about to do. I thought of my father,  and my brother and sisters, and wondered what they "would have thought  If they could have known to what a  pass I had fallen. What would my poor  mother havo said if she had lived?  But she, as far as 1 could learn from  those who had known her, had been  a gentle Christian woman, and if she  had lived I should in all probability  never have left England. In that case  I should not have known Bartrand,  and this revenge would then not havo  been necessary. By what small chances are our destinies shaped out for  us! '  At last the rattle of wheels sounded,  and a moment later a smart hansom  cab, which I recognized as that shown  me by Nikola at his house that morning, drove down the street and pulled  up at the corner where we stood. The  lamps glowed brightly in the frosty  air, and it was evident the horse was  one of spirit, for he tossed his head  and pawed the ground with impatience  to be off again.  The driver- descended from his  perch, while the Jew wont to the  horse's head. The other was a tall fellow, and until he came into the light  of the lamps I could not see his face.  To my surprise, he did not speak, bui  stood "fumbling in the pocket of his  oilskin for simething, which proved to  be a letter. This he handed to me.  I opened it and scanned its contents. It was, of course, from Nikola.  "Dear���������Everything is arranged, and  I send you this, wich the cab, by my  servant, who, as you know, will not  reveal anything. As soon as you receive it, mount and drive to Pall Mall.  Be opposite the MonoVth Club punctually at 11.30 and once there, keep  your eyes open for the man we want.  I will arrange that he shall leave exactly as the clock chimes, and will also  see that he takes your-cab. AVhen you  have dropped your fare in a quiet  street, drive as fast as you can', go to  Hogarth Square, and wait at, or near,  the second lamp-post on the left-hand  side. I will pick you up there, and will  arrange the rest. The man in ques  tion has been entertaining a distinguished company, including.two_dukes  and a Cabinet Minister, at dinner this  evening, but I have arranged to meet  and amuse him at twelve. May good  luck attend you. "Yours, N."  1 stuffed tho note into my pocket  and then glanced at my watch. It was  exactly quarter-past eleven, so if I  wanted to be at the rendezvous at the  time stated it was necessary that I  should start at once. Without more  ado, I climbed on to the seat at the  back, wound the rug I found there  round my legs, put on tho badge the  Chinaman handed up to me, and,  whipping up the horse, much to the  Jew's consternation, drove off down  the street at a rapid pace. As I turned into Great Windmill Street snow  began to fall again, and I gave an  evil chuckle as I reflected that even  the forces of Nature were assisting  me in my murderous intentions. In  my heart I had no pity for the man  whom I was about to kill. Ho had  robbed me as cruelly as one man could  rob another, and now I was going to  repay him for his treachery.  CHAPTER IV.  The cab horse was a fine animal,  and spun along to such good purpose  that when I turned from Waterloo  Place into Pall Mall I had, contrary  to my expectations, still some few  minutes to spare. Now that the actual  moment for putting into effect the  threats I had so often uttered against  the man who had wronged me so  cruelly, had arrived, strange to say I  was seized with a sudden and inexpli-  1 cable feeling of compassion'for him.  J Badly as he had injured mo, and desirous as I was of repaying him for  his treachery, I discovered I could not  bring myself to do what I had arranged without reluctance. If it had been  a matter of fair fighting, with the certainty of no one interfering between  us, It would have been a totally different matter, and I could have gone into It with a light heart; but now to  decoy him to his death by the aid of  Nikola's science was an act of cowardice at which my whole nature revolted.  Feeling half. Inclined to put off���������If  not for ever, at least for that evening  the dastardly deed I had had artanged  for me���������I drove    slowly    down    the  street, quite unable to resist the temptation of seeing the man whom, if I  wished to do so, I could kill so easily  In the event of his hailing me as had  been arranged, I would reply that I  was engaged, and leave him to find  another vehicle, unconscious   of   tho  narrowness of his escape. At any cost  I would not lei. him set foot   in   my  conveyance. While I was thus arguing  with myself I was drawing closer and  closer to the Monolith Club. Already  I couid discern the stalwart form of  the commissionaire standing upon the  steps tinder the great lamp. At tho moment that I approached, two men left  the building arm in arm, but neither  of them was the man f wanted. Little  by little their steps died away In the  distance, and so nicely had   I   timed  my arrival that the clock at the Palace ahead chimed the half-hour exactly  as I came opposite the steps. At the  same instant the doors of   the   Club  opened, and   Bartrand   and   another  man, whom I recognized Instantly as  Nikola, came out. The mere sight of  the man I nated   shattered   all   my  plans in an Instant. In the presence of  the extraordinary  individual   accompanying him I had not sufficient pluck  to cry "engaged"; so, when the commissionaire   hailed   me,   there /was  nothing for it but to drive across tho  road and pull up alongside the pavement, as we had previously arranged.  "You're In luck's   way,   Bartrand,  crlod Nikola, glancing at  my   horse,  which was tossing his head and pawing the ground no If eager lo bo   off  again; "that's a rare   good   nag   of  yours, cabby. He's   worth   an   extra  faj'fl."  -i grunted something In reply, I cannot remember what. Tho more sight  of Bartrand standing there on tho  pavement scanning the horse, had  roused all my old antipathy; and    as  I have said, my good resolves   ver#  cast to tho winds like so muct chaff  "Well, for the present, au revolt  my dear fellow," said Nikola, shaking  hands with his victim. "I will meet  you at the house in half-an-hour, and  if you care about it you can have your  revenge then; now you had better be  going. Twenty-eight, Saxeburgh  Street, cabby, and don't be long about  it."  I touched my hat and opened the  apron for Bartrand to step inside.  When he had done so he ordered me  to lower tho glass, and not be long in  getting him to his destination or I'd  hoar of it at tho other end. He little  thought how literally I might interpret tho command.  Leaving Nikola standing on the  pavement looking after us, I shook up  my horse and drove rapidly down the  street. My whole body was tingling  with exultation; but that it would havo  attracted attention and spoiled my revenge, I felt I could have shouted my  joy aloud. Hero I was with my enemy  in my power; by lifting the shutter In  tho roof of the cab I could sec him  lolling inside���������thinking, doubtless, of  his wealth, and little dreaming how  closo he was to tho poor fellow he  had wronged so cruelly. The knowledge that by simply pressing the  spring under my hand I could destroy  him in five seconds, and then choosing  a quiet street could tip him out and  bo done with him for ever, intoxicated me like the finest wine. No one  would suspect, and Nikola, for his  own sake, would never betray mo.  While I was thinking in this fashion,  and gloating over what I was about to  do, I allowed my horse to dawdle a  little. Instantly an umbrella was  thrust up through the shutter and I  was ordered, In the devil's name, to  drive faster.  "Ah! my fine fellow," I said to myself, "you little know how near you  aro to the master by whom you swear.  Wait a few moments until I've had a  little more pleasure out of your company, and then we'll see what I can  do for you."  On   reaching   Piccadilly   I   turned  west, and for some distance followed  the proper route for Saxeburgh Street.  All the time I was thinking, thinking,  and thinking of what I was about to  do. He was at my mercy; any instant  I could make him a dead'man, and  the cream of the jest was that he did  not know it. My fingers played with  the fatal knob, and ence I almost pressed it. The touch of the cold steel sent  a thrill through me, and at the same  instant one of the most extraordinary  events of my life occurred. I am almost chary of relating it, lest my readers may feel inclined to believe that I  am endeavoring to gull them with tho  impossible. But, even at the risk of  that happening, I must tell my story  as it occurred to me. As I put my hand  for the last time upon the knob there  rose before my eyes, out of the half  dark, a woman's face, and looked at  me. At first I could scarcely   believe  my own eyes. I rubbed them and looked again. It was still there, apparent-  ly hanging in mid-air above the horse  I was driving.

THE COST OF  GOOD HEALTH  Will Be Lessened By the Timely  Use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  How much money is wasted on useless  medicines. ' How  much  time  is  lost; how much pain, endured simply  because  you  do  not  find  the    right  medicine to start with.

My condition was growing worse  and  a general  breakdown  threatened.    I  slept poorly at night  and lost much  in weight, and began  to fear that I was drifting into chronic invalidism.    One day "while  reading a newspaper I was attracted by  the statement of a follow sufferer who  had   been  cured  through the  use of  Dr. Williams' Pink PiUs.

After tho first couple of weeks  they began to help me, and in seven  weeks     after    I     began     the    pills  I  was  as  well  as ever  I had  been.

Almost any Mexican In professional or business life carries on his  person anywhere between $200 and  $800. Even the poor Indian in his  blanket can more than likely produce  more than-many foreigners.  The ordinary foreigner In Mexico,  whether tourist or business man located here, carries perhaps $50. to$100  with him and no-more. If a tourist,  the foreigner will deposit any money  over that amount lie happens to have  with him in the safe of the hotel at  which he is registered; if a business  man, he will carry no more than that  amount on his person and will give a  check for anything over that amount.  The Spaniard resident In Mexico Is inclined to carry much larger suras than  any other foreigner here, and he will  often carry sums of money aggregating nearly $1,000.  The ordinary Mexican professional  man will be found to carry sums of  money on his person that would surprise the ordinary traveler and even  cause him worry were he forced to  carry It with him, yet the Mexican  never eve'n thinks of It.  It was but a few days ago that an  Instance of this kind was brought to  attention. One Mexican of the middle  class asked another In a casual way  If he could change a thousand dollar  bill. The other pulled out a wallet  from his Inside pocket and counted out  nearly $2,000. Time after time this  has happened, and It seems no uncommon thing for a Mexican of the middle  class to carry between one and two  thousand pesos on his person.  One Mexican, who was being reproved for this apparent carelessness  and imprudence, replied:  "We do uot have any of your American holdups and highwaymen In Mexico. I have known my friends to have  their pockets picked for large amounts  through their own carelessness as to  where they carried their money, but I  have never heard of any one being hit  over the head with a blackjack and his  pockets rifled of their contents.- That  thing is unknown in Mexico, nnd so  we have no fear In carrying these  amounts."  The check Idea seems to have taken  but small hold as yet upon the citizens  of Mexico, especially when small  amounts of less than $1,000 are concerned. They consider it much easier  to pay spot cash than to give a check  jTor amounts of $50 and $100, and they  41nim, with some amount of reason,  that a business deal can be put through  with better advantage ,to themselves  when the cash is in sight.  Even tho Indians in the street carry  amounts of cash that,would never be  supposed to be in their possession. They  carry their money iu leather belts fastened around their bodies Inside their  trousers. These belts are hollow and  are open at one end. Into the open  end the Indian slips his pesos or bills  until he has the whole full. The belt  then is either taken off and hidden  away or the bills aro changed for larger denominations and still carried  around tho body. But the Indian is a  stickler for "pesos duros" and"prefers  them to any other class of money except gold. ��������� ~"  SOME PROVERBS.

Too Much at Stake.  The question for discussion before  the debating society 'that had met in  the little sehoolhouse belonging to"district No. 13 was this: "Resolved, That  the works published under the name  of William Shakespeare were really  written by Lord Bacon."  The debate was fierce and prolonged,  but, as frequently happens in such  cases, the disputants on one side had  informed themselves thoroughly, while  the others, relying upon their having  the popular side of the controversy,  depended solely on their oratory; hence  the Baconians, having learned all that  could be said in favor of their contention, made really a very plausible  case aud had decidedly much the better of the argument. At the close of  tho discussion the three judges who  had been selected held a brief consultation and decided in favor of the negative.  "Why did you decide against us?"  subsequently asked one of the disputants. "You know we presented good  arguments, while the other fellows  didn't show any."  "That's all right," answered the  Judge to whom this question was addressed, "but two of us had Just  bought expensive copies of 'The Works  of William Shakespeare' that cost us  $15.

B Stuart of tbe  Confederate cavalry was u soldier by  nature. Dashlug and daring, cool In  the face of dauger. be was one of the  brave and picturesque figures or the  civil war. II. B. McClellan quotes In  "Life and Campaigns of Major General  Stuart" from General Fitz-Eliigh Lee's  impression of the future cavalry leader while he was still at West Point:  "I recall his distinguishing characteristics, which were strict attention to  military duty; erect, soldierly bearing:  immediate and almost thankful acceptance of a challenge to fight from any  cadet who might feel himself in any  way aggrieved aud a clear, ringing  voice."  Stuart was a most cheerful soldier.  That "clear" voice of,his was often  used In singing his favorite war song:  If you want to havo a good, time,  Jine the cavalry.  His courageous attitude was held  until the very end. lie was wounded  by a pistol ou tho battlefield. As ho  was being carried away he noticed the  disorganized ranks of his retreating  men.  "Go back!" he called out "Go back!  Do your duty as I have done mine!  Go back! I'd rather ale thun be whipped!"  Those were his last words on the  field of battle. Later lie said, with the  same courage:  "I'm going fast now. God's will tn������  done."  How One May Grow Old Attractively  and Gracefully.  Growing old is not a condition to be  dreaded.   Youth is delightful and full  of zest, but that Is no reason why Its  loss should be bemoaned.   A woman  who wishes may' gain attractiveness  with each year she, lives and at thirty  be far prettier, more'delightful and entertaining than at twenty.  This ls_the  working of the eternal law of averages  that never fails if one will only put It  Into operation.  Only" one must understand the situation 'and the law' and  abide by It accordingly, remembering  that there is no gain without loss and  that to achieve one must work.    *  ��������� To grow old gracefully is an art, and  to step into middle age successfully is  a triumph. It Is women "who do this of  whoin.one hears others say she,is "better looking than when she was a girl"  or Is. "ever so 'much nicer thfln when  she was young."   Every woman may  be   this   by   developing   attractions'  which a girl can never'nave."  The original mistake that many women make as they feel their youth going is to fail to bring out the next set  of'attractions.  Mere youth is pleasing,  nnd because of It much Is overlooked,  condoned or Ignored.  "She is'n pretty  girl," some ono says and forgives tho  evidences of bad temper.  But they will admlro more a woman  of middle age who has learned to control her temper and to show sweetness  and self control  when  youth  would  try Into a rage.  A middle aged woman who has learned from life as she has gone-on Is infinitely  more  attractive than  a  girl.  The former has gained sweetness and  strength In trial.   She Is more entertaining, has more tact, more knowledge . of- how to please.   When n girl  pleases it is simply in the fact that she  Is a girl.   But with this same power in  nn older woman there is "knowledge  before which a girl fades Into oblivion.  The adventuress In a play is never a  girl.    She  is always 'a woman  past  thirty years of age.   She must have  age to be clever,-but the mental ability which a woman of that type turns  to bad purposes may in one who Is,  honest and well bred.be used for the  best ends.      v  For  one thing, "she  makes, herself  helpful and particular.   A certain care-  Iessnessin dressing that in a girl .may ���������  be picturesqueness in a middle aged  woman is slovenliness, and one- who  wishes to look and be her best will not  give way to it    It is a, mistake to  think that-because one's hair is turning gray how it Is done up,doesn't matter.    It matters a great deal, and especial pains must be taken to arrange'  it well  and   becomingly.    To try to  wear the same style frock as youth  does   is   ridiculous   and   unbecoming.  Gowns suited to the middle aged fig-  , ure will not make one look older. They  simply harmonize and do not by ex-  Ireme  contrast call  attention  to the  fact that a woman is not a girl.   LittU  airs and graces of manner that were  pretty in the girl are elephantine In the  woman.   Instead of these there should  be a sweet dignity of manner that will  charm all.     ^ .......  ���������There is absolutely no need-to dread  | advancing years If only one will ad  vance with them in dress, habits and  customs. One's friends are getting  along also, and all keep on together. .  But every one, and especially a woman, should grow old attractively and  not carelessly. To be too particular  about the neatness and detail of one's  clothes, that they shall be perfectly  put-together and becoming, Is impossible. Too many women are careless  about this, and it makes them look  horrid. On the other hand, there la  nothing prettier in the world than a  sweet and dainty old lady, and If her  character and mind are sweet as well  she has more friends and deeper admiration than ever fall to the lot of a girl.  TARPON  TACTICS.  ���������/  Wonderful Feats, Flights and Leap's Of  the Silver King.   , '' ,  In the big pas's tarpon can best be  caught from near .the bottom oft the  channel and should be lished for with  fifty feet of line and a heavy sinker.  In shallow  water the tarpon  leaps  high in air the instant be, feels, the  hook, but In the pass'he often fights  for a,minute'or two before coming to  the surface.   More tban once when'I  had come to fear that my tarpon .was  a shark he has suddenly shot above  the surface like a bullet from a gun  nnd in the first wild sliake of bis head  thrown hook and bait fifty feet In the"  air, and one even sent a four ounce  leaden sinker flying over my head from  nearly twice that distance.   Other tarpon   when   struck, came  straight   up  from the bottom, one grazing our,gun-'  wale as he rose and another leaping  over the stern of tbe canoe.   As soou  as a tarpon'was tired enough to let us  pull the canoe beside blmawe removed  the hook from bis moutlf and let him  swim home to his family,  it happened'  once thut a tarpon was less tired,than  we had assumed. On that occasion' we  swam home, and he had a good man  story to tell his friends. .  It bad been counted a poor year for  tarpon, yet In fifteen consecutive days  of llsblng we were fast to forty-four  tarpon, each of which had Jumped for  us  from one to twelve times.    This  high water murk of twelve jumps was  made by'a tarpon which was stimulated to his Inter efforts by the presence  of  n  pursuing  shnrk,  and   the  twelfth Jump was a double number.  There was commotion In tbe crimsoned  water, new vigor ut the other end of  my line, nnd It was an hour later when  I finally landed on a sand bur a shark  with au.alderiuanio stomach   A knife  drawn across this distended organ disclosed the tarpon in sections, with "the  hook still fast in bis Jaw. and enabled  the  camera   man   to .photograph   to-,  gether the subjects   he  had  reeentl.v  photographed    separately.     Although  this shark was only one-fifth the size  of our big hammerhead, yet he made  but two' bites of his victim.  Our work at Boca Grande ended with  the' red letter day of the season of nil  seasons.  I was fishing in the pass with  fifty feet of line and tbe bait was directly under the canoe when a tarpon  struck fiercely, quickly carried away a  hundred   more feet of line and then  swam so swiftly toward us'that I feared from tbe loosened line that he had  escaped.   Then, fifty feet from the'canoe, there shot into the air a giant tarpon, measuring, as we learned afterward, an even seven feet.   Up. up. up.  he rose until the camera seemed to be  pointed at the zenith, and before^the  rattled camera man could get his aim  -the silver king had turned gracefully  hi the nlr and was plunging downward.  The.captain swears that he saw. swinging clear of the water, the ribbon which  raaiked twenty-five feet on tbe line as  it hung plumb down from the tarpon.  Once I gave my own estimate of the  height of the Jump to a group of  friends and after a glance nt their  grieved expressions appealed to tbeone  of most experience on the coast and  with the tarpon. After a single moment of hesitation he remarked (irmly:  "We fishermen must stand together.  I believe the story."���������A. W/Diraoek In  Appleton's..    .  ������'.>  .'  He   LivesI  P. C.

Of all modern languages English Is  undoubtedly the most difficult to acquire.    In  addition  to  the   ordinary  pitfalls of forms and idioms that entrap the foreigner struggling for mastery of a-strange tongue, there Is one'  so peculiar to ours that nothing even''-  remotely similar presents Itself In any  other  language,   whether  ancient   or  modern. ���������     ,    '  This Is the' paradoxical word, tho  word which has two meanings diametrically opposed to each other." It Is  not enough that, with all the wealth  of words borrowed from half a score  of other languages, we must impose a  double and often a multiple burden on  some poor little monosyllabic word  like'"get,"'for instance, whose meanings are legion.- Our language must  needs confound the", student at tho  gates with the paradox. To give a  few examples: '��������� ' '"  The word "let" means to "allow"  or "permit" and likewise 'to "prevent," "hinder"or "reruse," meanings  diametrically opposite. "I will let you  do It" in the former sense Is hardly  more common in use than the' phrase  "without let or hindrance," and  Shakespeare has it, "By heaven, I'll  make a ghost of him that lets (prevents) me!"  "Cleave" means to split asunder as  well as to "adhere" or "bind" closely.  Scott* makes . Marralon threaten to  "cleave the Douglas' head," _ while  holy writ enjoins upon the husband to  "cleave unto his' wife."  Another example Is "lurid," "which  means both a .''dull red" and also a  "pale green" hue, tints that are exactly opposed in the scale of color. While  the former Is the more common meaning, the latter Is more scholarly correct, as the word Is derived through,  the Latin from, the Greek adjective  meaning "greenish lined."       , '  Again, we have "fast."

At the Players' club In "New York  one e veil ing there was a guest from  out of town, a playwright well known  for his extraordinary facility in turning out the alleged "drammers" that  do the "ten-twenty-thirt" circuits. It  Is no uncommon thing for this producer to grind out live or six of his  plays annually.  Some one innocently asked the playwright if It was rather difficult to fiud  new Ideas for his plays.  "Iteally I don't know," wns the frank  answer of the man who bus made  thousands of dollars from his ���������'drummers."   "I have never tried it".

It Is located at  San Cosme, near the City of Mexico,  and wns purchased and established In  tbe year ISoO for the purpose of Interring the remains of the soldiers of  tho United States who died or were  killed in that vicinity during the war  with Mexico, and also for the purpose  of Interring the bodies of citizens of  the United States who have died In  that vicinity since that period.    The  existence of this cemetery was forcibly recalled to the minds of the officers  of the war department recently by the  receipt of a requisition  from the superintendent amounting to S10 for the  payment to tho government of Mexico  for expenses incurred hi connecting tho  cemetery with the sewer system of the  city."���������Washington Star.

Yeast is a small plant which can be  seen only with the aid of the microscope, says Good Health. There are  two varieties, wild and cultivated, for  these tiny plants can be improved  through cultivation, as larger plants  can be.  Firms which make yeast for tho  market must grow these plants quite  as caierully as" tne-unrlal-grows bis  flowers. Care must be taken that they  do not become mixed with other varieties, therefore destroying the culture.  In some laboratories where yeast is  grown two separate buildings are kept  for^this purpose. These are both carefully disinfected, and If It is found  that the yeast becomes contaminated  In one building the culture is started  anew and the other building previously  disinfected before moving into it  This plant, like bacteria, requires  warmth, moisture and food. The materials out of which the bread is made  should always be warmed, and the  dough should always be kept in a  warm place. The temperature most  favorable is about that of the body, a  little less thnn 100 degrees.  There is always considerable moisture In bread and plenty of food for  the plant. Tho food which it requires  is sugar. This it obtains from the  wheat, there being some sugar in the  flour, and more sugar is also formed  from the starch.  - As the yeast plants feed upon sugar  they break It down into two substances, alcohol and a gas known as  carbon dioxide or carbonic acid gas.  As the gas Is formed It Is held by tho  gluten, which Is a very elastic substance. When the bread is put Into tho  oven the heat expands the tiny bubbles of gas, causing the bread to rise  or to become much lighter. The alcohol formed, being a volatile product,  passes off into the baking.  A CULINARY WRINKLE.

The question of graduating expense?  has become nn ium>:ii.liigly serious one  to midshipmen at Annapolis.   In a letter to a friend one of the members of  the class or 'SO. which Is soon to be  graduated, writes: "I hud no Idea that  graduating was so expensive.   I have  Just ordered  my necessary on til L    It  cost $1,000, and  ihore  nre still  Incidental expenses to lie met In connection  with  my graduation  which  will  ninoiint   to   several    hundred   more.  Many of my clnrsniates tell mo thnt  their bills are even heavier, and I think  only n few of the members of the class  hnvo boon able to save much from  their salaries to anticipate these bills.  We are nil wondering how wo nre going to meet them."    Under the regulations of the Naval academy the pny-  mnster reserves $" from the snlnry of  each midshipman ench month hi order  that ho may have "an amount available" to meet his graduation expenses.  This provides, however, only n little  over ?,100 at the end of the four year  course.���������New York Tribune.  Progress.  The martyr cannot be dishonored.

Long, straggling hairs which give an  appearance of roughness to the eyebrows may be temporarily removed  with tweezers or permanently by electrolysis.

A Revival in the Swine  Industry  While  the   swine  raising, industry',  has been in some quarters resting on'  its oais and in others showing posi-*  tive   retrogress'on,   the    Live    Stock  Branch at Ottawa has been getting out  a revision o" bulletin No.  10,  "The  Production of Bacon for the British  Market/'    This   booklet  in    its  first  edition received such  a call that a  very large edition became exhausted  before the demand was satisfied.   The  call for cop:es during the late summer and autumn months fell away to  some extent but'the renewal of intei-"'  est aritl hope in the bacon industry  is showing itself very strongly in a  request  fiora   many  quarters   of   the  Dominion for more information upon  the question of swine raising.    Fortunately the new edition is off the  press and ready for distribution.  The bulletin -'n its revised form will  scarcely  be recognized.    In addition  to an almost complete new set of illustrations, which are much better arranged  than  in   the    roimer    issue,  much new matter    has been added.  Careful treatment has been given the  vital question of housing and in this  connection a number of plans of modern, approved piggeries    are   illustrated  and  described.    The  economical  utilization  of  dairy  by-products -  ���������that maig-'n  upon which profit in  the  industry ', so    much    depends���������is  treated as new matter. The very strong  ,  revival of the swine raising industry -  which  must of necessity  follow the  saciifice of breeding stock that took  place   during  the  past  autumn  has  already  commenced  to   show--itself.  It is safe to predict that with the return of spring with its "pasturage and "  renewal, of   supply,  of   dairy   by-products, together with the shortage of  market  stock,   a  demand  for  swine  greater than has been for many years,  will be experienced.

A letter from the Clark &Cowles Co.,  re the Seagrave cut-off valve, was received  and filed.  It was decided that the city laborers  would be paid tbe same wages ns last year.

McKee addressed the council re a. disgmccful-ruuipuii.i hat .recently  occurred around the manse. He" had  performed a marriage ceremony and the  newly married people were stopping at  his house over night. A crowd of boys  appeared and disturbed the equanimity  of affairs by beating tin cans and demanding to see the man "wot's got married"  so that they could touch him for a ?5 or  $10. Mr. McKee thought such proceedings degrading and that they should be  stopped. The council were of thesatne  opinion.  As boys under age are in the habit of  frequenting barrooms in fhe -city, it was  decided to have cards printed warning  liquor sellers that liquor-must not be sold  to children under 16 years of age, and  that they must not be "allowed to loiter  around the premises where liquor is sold.  It was decided to immediately proceed  with the street work that was necessary  to be done, such as repairing sidewalks,  bridges, crossings, etc. As far aspossible  ratepayers are to be employed or men  with large families.  There was considerable discussion  about the water reservoirs and some improvements were suggested. Next Tuesday was appointed a cleaning day in the  city, and it will be necessary for all to set  their back yards in order.  Vhe tenant of the city farm was notified  to immediately repair fences and otherwise carry 'out his agreement with the  council.
