Good heavens, man. you little know  hev 'i.nvViy  I  Deliaved towards you!"  "I've not time to hoar ;t now, then,"  J:o answered. "Quick ! lot mo make a  new will while I've strength to sign  It."  Pens, paper, and ink .were soon  forthcoming; and at his insiruction  Mr. Maybourno and the doctor between thorn drafted the will. When  it was finished the dying man signed  it, and then those present witnessed It,  and the man lay hack and closed his  eyes. For a moment I thought he was  gone, but I was mistaken. After a  silence of about ten minutes he opened his eyes and looked at mo.  "Do you remember Markapur.lic?"  ho said. That was all. Then, with a  grim smile upon Ills lips, ho died, just  as thc clock on the wall above his  head struck twelve. His last speech,  for some reason or other, haunted me  for weeks.  Towards sundown that afternoon I  was standing in the verandah of my  bouse, watching a fatigue party digging a grave under a tree in the paddock beyond the mine buildings, when  a shout from Mr. Maybourno, who  was on his way to tho office, attracted  my attention. When I reached his side,  he pointed to a small speck of dust  about a mile to tbe northward.  "It's a horseman," he cried; "but  who can it bo?"  "I have no possible notion," I answered; "but we shall very soon see."  The rider, whoever he was, was in  no hurry. When he came nearer, we  could seo that he was cantering along  as coolly as if he were riding in Rotten Row. By the time he was only a  hundred yards or so distant, I was  trembling with excitement. Though I  bad never seen tho man on horseback  before, I should have known his figure  anywhere. It was Dr. Nikola. There  could be no possible doubt about that.  Bartrand was yu'te right when ho told  me that he was in the neighborhood.  I hoard Mr. Maybourno say something about news from the township,  but the real import of his words I did  not catch. I seemed to be watching  the advancing figure with my whole  being. When lie reached the laager  he sprang from bis horse, and then it  was that I noticed Mr. Maybourne had  left my side and was giving instructions to let 'iiir. :a. I followed to receive him.  On reaching the inside of our defences, Nikola raised his hat politely  to Mr. Maybourno, while he handed  his reins to a trooper standing by.  "Mr. Maybourne, I believe, ho said.  "My name is Nikola. I am afraid I am  thrusting myself upon you in a very  unseemly fashion, and at a time when  vou have no desire to be burdened  with outsiders. My friendship for our  friend Wrox ford here must be my excuse. I .left Buluwayo at daylight this  morning in order to see him."  He hold out his band to me and I  found myself unable to do anything  but take. it. As usual it was as cold  as ice. For f.-.e Enrneni i was "so fascinated by thc evil glitter in his eyes  that I forgot to wonder how he knew  my assumed name. However, I managed to stammer out something by  way of a welcsme, and then asked i  how long he had been in South Afrl- '  ca.  "I arrived two months ago," he an.  swered, " and after a week in Capo  Town, where I had some business to  transact, made my way up here to  see you. It appears I have arrived at  an awkward moment, but if I can help  you in any way I hope you will command my services. I am a tolerable  surgeon, and I have the advantage of  considerable   experience   ol   assegai  wounds.  While he was speaking the bell rang  for tea, and at Mr. Maybourne's in  vitation Dr. Nikola accompanied us to  where the meal was spread���������picnic  fashion���������on the ground by the kitchen  door. A'gnes was waiting for us, and I  saw her start with surprise when her  father introduced the newcomer as  Dr. Nikola, a friend of Mr. Wrexford's.  She bowed gravely to him, but said  nothing. I could see that she know  him for the man Bartrand had warned  me against, and for this reason she  was by no means prepossessed in his  favor.  During the meal Nikola exerted all  his talents to please. And such was  his devilish���������I can only call it by that  name���������cleverness, that by the time  wo rose from the meal he had put himself on the best of terms with every-  one. Even Agnes seemed to have,-for  the moment, lost much of her distrust  of him. Once out In thc open again I  drew Nikola away from tho others,  and having walked him out of earshot  of tho house, asked the meaning of  his vtelt.  "Is It so hard to guess?" ho wild, as  ho seated himself on the pole of a  wagon, and favored mo with one of  his peculiar smiles. "I should have  thought not."  "I have not tried to guess," I an-  swe'red, having by this timo resolved  upon my lino of-action; "and I do  not intend to do so. I wish you to tell  mo."  "My dear Pcnnethorno-Wrexford, or  Wroxford-Penncthorne," he said quietly, "I should advise you not to adopt  that tone with inc. You know very  well why I have put myself to tho  trouble of running you to earth."  "I havo not the least notion," I replied, "and that Is the truth. I thought  I had done with you when I said good  bye to you in Golden Square that awful night."  "Nobody can hope to have dono  with mo," ho answered, "whon they  do not act fairly,by inc."  "Act fairly hy you? What do you  mean? How havo I not acted fairly by  you?" L   ,  "By running away in that mysterious fashion, when it was agreed between iih tlmt I should arrange everything. You might have ruined mo."  "Still I do not understand you!  How might I havo ruined you?"  This tlmo I took him unawares. Ho  looUal Jit mo for tt moment la sheer  "I should advise you to give up thli  sort of thing," he said, licking his lips  In that peculiar cat-llko fashion I had  noticed in London. "Remember 1 know  everything, aud one word In our  friend May-bourne's ear, and���������well���������  you know what the result will be. Perhaps he does not know what an illustrious criminal he is purposing to  take for a son-in-.law."  "One insinuation like that again,  Nikola," I cried, "ami I'll have put  off this place before you know where  you are. You dare tr> fall me a criminal���������you, who [doited and planned  the murders that shocked and terrified itll Rsglami:"  "That I do not admit. I only remember that 1 assisted you to obtain  your revenge on a man who had  wronged you. On summing up 'so judiciously, pray do not forget' that  point."  Nikola evidently thought ho had  ohi alncd an ad vantage, and was quick  to improve on It.  "Come, come," he said, "what is the  use of our quarrelling like a pair of  children? All 1 want of you is an answer to two simple questions."  "What are your questions?"  "i want to know, first, what you  did -with Bartrand's hotly when you  got rid of it oui of the cab."  "You really wish to know that?"  Ho nodded.  "Then come with mo," I said, "and  I'll toll you."  . I led him into thc house, and, having  reached the bed in tho corner, pulled  down thc sheet.  lie beat over tho figure lying there  so still, and then started back with a  cry of surprise. For a moment I could  see that he was non-phisscd as he had  probably not been in his life before,  but by thc time one could have counted twenty, this singular being was  himself again.  "1 congratulate you," ho said, turning to. mo and holding out his hand.  "The king has come into his own  again. You aro now ono of the richest  men In tho world, and I can ask my  second question."  "Bo certain first," I said. "I inherit  nothing from Mr. Bartrand."  "What do you mean by that? I happen to know that his will was made  in your favor."  "Vou are quite mistaken. He made  a later will this afternoon, leaving all  his money and estates to four London  hospitals."  Nikola's face wont paler than I had  ever seen it yet. His thin lips trom-  blod perceptibly. The man was visibly  anxious.  "You will excuse my appearing to  doubt vou, I hope," .he said, "but may  1 see that will?"  I called Mr. Maybourne into the  room and asked him if. he had any  objection to allowing Dr. Nikola to  see the paper in question. Ho hand-  tii It to him without hesitation, "Keeping close to his e.lbow while he perused it. Tho Doctor read it slowly  from beginning to end, examined the  signature, noted the names of the  executors, and also of the witnesses,  and when he had done so, returned  it to Mr. Maybourne with a bow.  "Thank you," ho said, politely. "It  is excellently drawn up. and, with  your evidence against me, I fear it  would be foolish for mc to dispute it.  In that case, I don't think ������I need  trouble your hospitality any inether."  Then,"turning to mc, he led"mo from  the house acioss to where bis horse  was standing.  ������������������t;-aoet-t.\e, T'er.-itcOvornc," he f,atd.  "All I can'say of you is that your luck  fs greater than your cleverness. I am  not so blase but I can admire a man  who can surrender three millions  without a sigh. I must confess I am  vulgar enough to find that it costs mo  a pang to lose even my sixty thousand, i wanted it badly. Had my coup  only come off, and thc dead man in  there not been such an inveterate ass,  I should have had tho whole amount  of his fortune in my hands by this  time, and iu s'x rnc.ir.hs I would have  worked out a scheme that would havo  paralyzed Europe. As it is, I must  look elsewhere for the amount. When  you wish lo be proud of yourself, try  to remember that you have baulked  Dr. Nikola in one of his best-planned  .schemes, and . s&v.cd. probably half-a-  million lives by doing so. Believe me,  there are far cleverer men than you  who have tried to outwit me and failed. I suppose you will marry Miss  Maybourno now. Well, I wish you luck  with her. If I am a judge of character,  she will make you an able wife. In^ten  years time you will bo a commonplace rich man, with scarcely any  idea outside your own domestic circle  while I���������well the devil himself knows  where or what I shall be then. I wonder which will be the happier? Now  I must be off. Though you may not  think it, I always liked you, and if  you had thrown in your .lot with me,  I might have made something of you.  Good-bye."  He held out his hand, and as he did  so he looked me full in the face. For  the last time I felt the influence of  those extraordinary eyes. I to������k the  hand he offered and bade him goodbye with almost a feeling of regret,  mad as it may seem to say so, at the  thought that in a.ll probability I should  never see him again. Next moment he  was on his horse's back and out on  the veldt making for the westward. I  stood and watched him till ho was  lost in the gathering gloom, and then  went slowly back to the house thinking of the change that had come into  my life, thanking God for my freedom.  ���������       *   .   ������      *       *  Three months have passed since the  events just narrated took place, and I  am back in Capo Town again, finishing, the writing of this story of the  most adventurous period of my life, In  Mr. Maybourne's study.

Most of the .queens and empresses  of the Old World surpass their husbands in stature. The Czarina is considerably killer than Nicholas II.,  while tho King of Italy barely reaches  to the shoulders of his handsome wife,  Princess of Montenegro. Beth Queen  Alexandra and tho Gorman Empress  are slightly superior in height to their  respective consorts. Moreover, England's future queen, the Princess of  Wales, is much bigger than the  prince; and although thc King of  Denmark stands six feet on his stockinged feet, ho appears a short man  wh������n compared with his Queen, who,  a daughter of the late King Charles  of Sweden, is a perfect giantess, being a fraction over six feet two inches.  King Leopold of Belgium enjoys the  distinction of being quite the tallest  sovereign in Europe, his stature attaining six foot four inches. He experiences "much difficulty in finding  beds sufficiently big- to enable him  to stretch himself, at the various hotels where ho stays during'tho course  of his almost continuous peregrinations. Although he has always stooped somewhat, and is now considerably  bent with ago, he makes even thc tall  officers of his household���������many oi  whom, like Count John d'Oultremont,  thc grand marshal of court, are six-  footers���������look small in comparison.  Both Prince George of Greece, who  has just married Princess Marie Bonaparte, and who was formerly Lord  High Commissioner and Governor-  General of Crete, and Grand Duke  Nicholas Nicholaiovitch of Russia,  military governor of St. Petersburg,  the foremost cavalry leader of the  Czar's army, come next in point of  stature, with six feet throe inches to  their credit; while Archduke Eugene  of Austria, brother of the widowed  Queen of Spain, and grand master of  the ancient and historic Teutonic order, is within a fraction of the same,  stature.  The late Alexander Til. of Russia  was likewise six feet three inches in  height. This is the measurement recorded against him on that wonderful  column in the Danish cathedral of  Roeskild, the resting place of the ancient Kings of Denmark. Against  this column a number of monarchs  have been measured and their heights  recorded. Conspicuous among them  is Peter thc Great, who measured 6  feet 10 inches. Only one of. the sovereigns was taller, and that was King  Christian I. of Denmark, who, according to this record, was just a  trifle over seven feet.  The new King of Sweden is six feet  two inches, as compared with his  father, Oscar, who was six feet two  and one-half inches. He was one of  the most majestic and imposing men  that lias ever occupied a throne in  modern times. His great-grandfather  was a Pyrenean peasant, whose cottage  near Pau is still shown to tourists.  The old Emperor William of Germany was likewise a splendid looking  man of six feet two inches, and Prince  Bismarck, the first German chancellor, in spite of his huge bulk, seemed  always less impressive when standing bv thc side of his imperial master. The present King of Greece is  six feet one inch, and the King of  Denmark is six feet, which is likewise thc stature of the Queen of. Portugal, whose husband, Don Carlos,  measured only 5 feet 10 inches  The King of Italy is thc most diminutive of rulers, being five feet one  inch. Thc brevity of his stature is  accentuated by the fact that the trunk  of his body is'abnormally long, whereas his legs arc very short. Owing to  this disproportion, he looks at lushest  either, on horseback or when driving,  and at his worst when on foot. Only  two crowned heads have been shorter than tho present King of Italy,  namely, Queen Victoria, who was  slightlv under five feet, and the late  Queen"' Isabella's husband, King  Francis of Spain, who was in every  sense of the word a dwarf, measuring barclv 4 feet 10 inches. When  she had been forced by political intrigues to jilt her good-looking fiance,  Don Enrique de Bourbon, Duke of  Seville, and to wed this royal mite,  Queen Isabella remarked::  "I understand that I was to have  received as husband a man, and they  have given me nothing but an Infante."

Hon. John Ward, who accompanied  the King to Biarritz as his Equerry-  in-Waiting, tells an amusing story of  an experience he had'a few-years ago  while acting in a similar capacity. He  was traveling with the King in the  royal saloon when the train halted at  some small town in order that an address might be presented to the King  by the local corporation. While this  ceremony was going forward, Mr.  Ward alighted from the train for a  few moments, and it was commencing  to move off without him. Making a  dash for thc open door of the saloon,  he just managed to get his foot on  the step, when the mayor, aghast _at  what he deemed to bo a sudden invasion upon the privacy of the royal  traveler, seized him firmly by the  coal-tails, and hung on to him until  the station officials managed to stop  the train.  Couldn't Really Say.  "Now, I want to know how long it  will be before I L'et an answer to this  letter?" a young lady demanded, with  a tell-tale blush, as she handed the  postoffice clerk a communication addressed to her lover.  "That depends," said the clerk reflectively. "If he's in jail, they will  let him write once n week, on Sundays. If he's dead broke he'll have  to wait until he earns the price of a  stamp, and I havo no data on which  to base an opinion i of his earning  capacities.

Small children with the common  .-.kin diseases such as eczema, are  pitiable. The constant itch makes  them tear and scratch the affected  parts, thus hindering thc healing process, and worst of all it spreads over  the hands and face until it becomes  a serious disease.  Eor such troubles ns Eczema, Salt  Rhettin, Pimples, Hushes, Scalds,  Burns, etc., there is nothing better  than Dr. Chase's Ointment. It immediately stops all itching or paining from hums and scalds, so thc  sore gets a chance to heal by not being aggravated by. scratching. Jt also takes out all' poison and allows  it to lionl.  Mr. Wm. Craft, Jr., Burk's Falls,  Out., tells the experience of his little  boy.    He  writes:���������  "Our little boy, aged three years,  broke out with eczema all -over his  face, hands and back, and wo had a  terrible time trying to relieve his suffering. It was so bad that when he  scratched it would almost make the  blood How. The use of Dr. Chase's  Ointment quickly brought relief and  made- a thorough cure, as there has  never been any return of this disagreeable  ailment.

ANXIOUS MOMENTS FOR  YOUNG MOTHERS  The hot weather months arc an anxious time for all mothers, but particularly for young mothers. They  arc the most fatal mouths in thc year  for babies and young children, because of the great prevalence of stomach nnd bowel troubles. These come  almost without warning, and often  before the niiaihcr realizes that there  is danger the little one may be beyond  aid. It is the duty of every mother  to use all reasonable precautions to  ward off summer complaints. For  this purpose no other medicine can  equal Baby's Own Tablets. An occasional dose will keep the stomach and  bowels free from offending matter,  and will insure the little ones good  health. If the trouble comes unexpectedly the Tablets will speedily  cure it. Every home, therefore, should  keep the Tablets on hand always; they  may be the means of saving your  child's life.

Will Force of Which He Boasted Proves  a Failure When 'He Tries to Defy  Disease���������His Voice Returns . After  Interview With Tramp.  [Copyright, 190S. by T. C. McClure.]  At the breakfast table Mrs. Bowser  was telling of three .different neighbors  that had lhe grip and were laid up iu  bed ond she had jumped from that to  say tlu-.L New York had 700,000 cases,  Boston 500,000, Chicago 000,000 and  Philadelphia over 500,000 when Mr.  Bowser put down his coffee cup to reply:  "Bosh!    Bosh!   Don't talk to me of  baby diseases!".  "Why-, the grip this year is n pretty  serious thing with most everybody,"  sho protested.  "All bosh. IT it wasn't for the doctors and druggists no one would know  he   had   it.     What   they'call   grip   is  W.   N.   U.   No.   695.

Any one that goes to bed with  the grip is a person of weak character."  "lias character anything to do with  it?"  "It has everything to do with it. By  character I mean mostly will power.  Just imagine me going to bed with the  snullles, will you? Ha, ha, ha! If wo  had a boy three years old and he gave  up to it I'd spank him."  "I-I thought yesterday I was going  to have it."  "And you probably will. You are  just ono-of these namby-pamby sort  that get it. Oh. yes, you'll have it, but  don't look for any sympathy from mc.  This house has got to run right along  just the same."  "But suppose you get it?"  "What! What!" shouted Mr. Boyv-  ser as he bolted a piece of chop and  nearly choked over it. "Woman, don't  class me with that crowd. Suppose  the heavens fall? Suppose wo have  ten earthquakes this afternoon? Suppose our blamed old-yaller cat turns  green tonight? I get tho grip���������1, Bowser!"  But Mr. Bowser got it, and, like all  good things, it came suddenly. That  evening he sat reading and smoking  and saw a paragraph to which he  wished to call Mrs. Bowser's attention.  He opened his mouth to say the words,  and he got them out, but they sounded  as if he had his head in an empty barrel.  "Whatever is the matter with your  voice?' asked Mrs. Bowser as she  turned on him.  "Notli-iiotli-nothing!" he croaked like  a raven as he sat up and turned white.  "Are you holding marbles in your  mouth?"  "N-o. I've���������I've just got some-  something���������the���������the"���������  "Yes, you've just got something the  matter with you, and I can tell you  what it is. It's a case of laryngitis,  and laryngitis is a-.form of the grip.  Everybody around here has been taken  that way. Have you got. a sore  throat?"  "Y-yes," was tho husky reply as he  swallowed and nodded his head.  "And you are feverish and have got  a. regular case of the grip. That is,  you will have it if you are a nainby  pamby sort of man. What you want  to do is to exercise your will power.  Just keep saying over aud over to yourself that you won't have It. Say that  it is only a case of baby snullles.  Say"-  Mr. Bowser jumped up and went  through all kinds of motions with his  arms and legs. At thesame time he  tried to say something, but all the  sounds ho could make consisted of a  wheeze like a wind broken horse being  galloped uphill. Then ho turned to  the telephone and pointed.  "You mean for me to telephone the  doctor?   Very well."  Doctor Called In.  Mrs. Bowser announced over tho wire  tlmt Mr. Bowser had got It at last, nnd  .twenty ��������� minutes later I lie doctor was  there. He put Ihe handle of a spoon  on Mr. Bowser's tongue and pressed it  down for a look nnd thou cheerfully  nniiouiKTd:  "Yes; I fa laryngitis and the most  beautiful case of It I have seen this  ytiir.

Wo could take you down and  bring you back in tho ambulance, yoa  know.   What do you say?"  Mr. Bowser didn't say anything He  simply sat there and glared and said  to himself that he would murder that  doctor.the very first thing when he got  out  "Oh, well, I won't press you If you  don't want to be accommodating. Airs,  Bowser, I believe you havo an alcohol  lamp In thc house. I'll give you something to steam his throat with. - Gurgles won't reach lhe larynx, and cough  medlduuH are uo good In this cusp. .1  floil't' want uTru to go outdoors" ICt a  whole week."  Mr. Bowser jumped up and down  and pawed the air.  "If he does 1 won't answer for tbe  consequences. You see, he is a man  with a weak will aud must take no  chances. Just have him steam his  throat once an hour or so, and if he  wants to repeat tho Declaration of Independence lo try his voice let him go  ahead."  Mrs. Bowser sent to the drug store  for the medicine and fixed the lamp,  and Mr. Bowser ih haled. He drew in  his breath like an ox. Ho wanted to  be cured iu two hours so that he could  kill the doctor that evening. After an  inhalation he tried to talk. No good.  It was a huskinoss and a wheeze all  mixed up. It was the hiss of a goose,  tlie yeowl of a cat and the call of a  buzzard all copper fastened together.  It was thc beginning of things.  . Next morning that case of laryngitis  was worst, of course.' The larynx does  not often bob up and raise a row, but  when it does start In it keeps things  lively for several days.  Mr. Bowser Inhaled and sneezed and  sputtered.  The doctor bad said that a gargle  would.do no good, but he sent for a  pint and gurgled away like a man sawing wood hy tho day.,  no had been told that cough medicines would have no effect, hut he sent  for- three kinds nt once and took them  by turns.  About every ton minutes he tried his  voice.  Same husky old wheeze.  Same.ravens holding a convention  over his mangled remains.  After the first day things settled  down to the following'programme:  On arising In the morning glare at  Mrs. Bowser. She is tq blame, of  eourse. She no doubt brought the grip  in from some neighbor's house.  Fervent mental, wishes to dabble his  hands in the doctor's red hloodT  Cook's Pitying Glances.  Breakfast of something soft and tender. - No conversation. The cook's  pitying glances were taken for what  they were worth. No raise of wages  on account of the aforesaid p. g's.  Inhalation. Had Mr. Bowser had  chin whiskers he.would have burned  them off each time in the flame of tbe  alcohol.  Ten minutes spent In gargling.  Another ten in taking three different  kinds of cough medicines.  Trying his voice on the cat nnd other  objects.  Attempts to make Mrs. Bowser un  derstand that he wanted her to telephone for the doctor and that he would  stand behind the door, ax in hand.  Attempts to make Mrs. Bowser understand that he considered it all her  fault and.that wheu he finally recovered there would be such a tragedy  around that house as to make tbe  whole world turn pale.  Baleful looks at the cat.  Baleful looks at the cook.  ��������� At tho close or the fifth day Mr. Bowser tried his voice on a dog that had  wandered iulo the front yard, and to-  his great -surprise and gratification  thero was a squeal to it.  On tho morning of the Cth he could  bo understood by .Mrs. Bowser as saying that he was willing to pay a reasonable amount of alimony. "That afternoon as he was taking a last inhalation and swallowing the last of his  cough sirups a tramp rang the basement bell and asked for wine and  sweet cake. Mr. Bowser heard him and  made a rush downstairs and roared  like a bull, and he was running the  fellow out of the gate when tbe cook  called up the stairs to Mrs. Bowser:  "Oh, ma'am, g;>t right down on your  knees and thank heaven!"  "Why, what's the matter?"  - "Mr. Bowser has got his voice back!

A story about Ilobert Louis Stevenson not generally known, according 10  tho New York Sun, Is told by Mrs.  Stevenson's grandson, Austin Strong.

And often it happened  that tho bigger boy of the Jtwo would  make suggestions for the'make believe games and insist that they be car-  rlcd out too.  One day Austin had arranged some,  chairs in a row, playing that they  were ships, and he, standing on the  front, wns tho captain. For a long  time -he proudly walked the deck of  his vessel, encountered pirates and  "weathered all kinds of storms until he  felt the floor positively heave under  his feet  Mr. Stevenson looked on In perfect  silence, but complete absorption, no  doubt playing the whole thing much  the harder of the two. Finally Austin  got tired of his vessel, climbed off his  chair aud began walking across the  room to some object which had attracted bis Interest.  This was too much for his uncle.

The readers  of  this  paper  will   be  pleased to learn that there is at leasl  one dreaded disease that science has  been able to cure in all its  stages,  and that is Catarrh.    Hall's Catarrh  Cure  is the only  positive cure  now  known   to   the    medical    fraternity.  Catarrh being a constitutional disease,  requires   a   constitutional   treatment.  Hall's   Catarrh  Cure  is   taken   internally, acting directly upon the blood  and .mucous surfaces of the system,  thereby destroying the foundation of  the. disease,  and  giving  the patient  strength  by  building  up    the    constitution and assisting nature in doing  its   work.    The   proprietors   have   so  much faith in its curative powers that  they offer One .'Hundred Dollars    for  any case that it fails to cure.   Send  for list oe testimonials.  Address F. J.

They contain just  the elements that actually make new  blood and strengthen the nerves,  That's why they cure anaemia, indigestion, rheumatism, lumbago, headaches, backaches, heart palpitation  and skin diseases like pimples and  eczema.

It is certain that the ancients had a  knowledge of dentistry, but It is difficult to determine when or by whom  the use of artificial teeth  was introduced.   Herodotus says that the Egyptians had "dentists for the teeth."   In  tho British museum there are various  dental   instruments   which   had   been  found  In   the  rnlns  of  Pompeii,  nnd  Galen In��������� the second century describes  tho   method   of   extracting   teeth   by  means of forceps.

Modern ���������dentistry admits that the  first to teach how.to make artificial  teeth was the Arabian Alhucasis, and  In his work "Al Tarlf" are drawings  of instruments used" for this purpose.

It was the well-dressed men  and women of a still earlier period,  when trrcat ruffs were worn, who apparently christened a famous thoroughfare adjoining.  "The-edge of the ruff was called the  'piccadilly,' as may bo seen in several  of the earlier dictionaries; hence the  name of the fashionable-street abutting on Hyde Park to-day. When  there were practically no houses  there, a ruff shop, kept by a man named Hitrcins, existed, and was called a  'piccadilly.' Hieeins is said to have  made money, and built a row of houses  to which he handed on his name."  The term "Pickadill." however, is applied to Ihis district in Gerard's "Herbal." where it is mentioned that "the  small wild buirlosse" was crowing on  the banks of the dry ditches "about  Pickadilla." Changes in the park  have been frequent, and not all for the  best, perhaps. Thc greatest change of  all, for which habitues remain indebted to Queen Caroline, Consort of  George II.. was the Serpentine. Why  "Serpentine?" Perhaps five persons  out of six, if nskod to give the reason  why this particular name was applied  to the newly-fashioned lake, would not  be able lo guess correctly.  It was so called because of its shape.  Tn   fact   the   bond   is   very   small,  scarcely noticeable, yet in its day it  marked  a   revolt   from   the existing  order of things.    Hitherto no one in J  laying out ornamental water in a land- )  scape garden had dared to depart from  thc perfectly straight line or square  form  which" had  been  brought  over  '"nn Holland, and was considered the  acme of good taste.    Queen Caroline  was wise enoutrh to break away from  those absurd limitations.   But so established was the idea of a sciuare or  oblong lake from which she departed  that    mapmakers    represented    thr  stretch   of  water   in   a  quadrilateral  form   for  some  years."      Mrs.  Alec  Tweedie's chatty and informine paces  are well worth close perusal.  She has  written  a  fascinating   book,   "Hyde  Park:   lis History   and    Romance,"  round a fascinating subject.  Lincoln  Calendar Clock.  The parish  church of St.  Botolph.

Joseph  Martin delivered an address in  London before the International  Free Trade Congress. In his address he touched, .on .modem political methods in Canada. On  the assumption that it "takes a  thief to catch a thief" Mr. Martin's remarks mak safely be considered "expert testimony." Some  years ago, when Mr. Martin was  attorney-general'of Manitoba, it  was rumored in Winnipeg that  Jee made a 4- a. in. call on officials of-the Northern Pacific, forestalling his colleagues by live or  six hours, and depriving them of  their share in the gleanings that  may be gathered iu the wake of  railway officials wishing to extend  their system into new territory.  Following are a few extracts from  Mr. Marbiu's address in London :  "Oue can well understand that  under tho very best administration  there may be cases of wromg doing  on the part of officials of departments, but it would naturally be  expected when charges of this kind  were made in parliament and committees appointed for their investigation that the government of,the  day would lend every assistance in  their power to expose the wrong  and punish the wrong doers. So  deep rooted, however, is. the corruption in public life iu Canada,  that we find the government employing every means at their hand  to suppress and nullify the investigations of thesegcoramittees. Witnesses refuse to answer questions  and whe" the Conservative meni-  beis of the committee ask for their  committal for contempt the Liberal  majority invariably refuse to exercise its power."  " Members of the government-  become enormously rich while in  office without any apparent means  of enrichment except the power  placed iu their hands by virtue of  their positions. When these matters are referred to in parliament  the ministers in question make no  explanation whatever of the euor-  mous riches which they have" accumulated, but defy the opposition  to lay charges against them and  prove them."  " Since the present government  came into power in many instances  the law has been changed so that  the alienation of public lands,  franchises and concessions which  before had been in the hands of  the governor-general-iii-eouncil,  came within the power of the minister of the department alone,  without any check whatevor. Although the government issues an  official gazette every week, these  grants are not published and there  is no general knowledge of them  unless asked for in parliament and  even then it is only with the greatest difficulty that any information  can be obtained, and in manj' cases  when obtained has been shown not  to be reliable."  " It is true that thre is another  source of corruption in Canada besides the protective policy. It is  thc practise of granting large subsidies for the construction of railways. It is well understood that  whenever a subsidy is given to a  railway company that a considerable portion of the same finds its  way into the election fund of the  government in power. This charge  was openly made by the Liberals  against the Conservatives when  they were in power, and there is  no reason to suppose that there  has been any change in this respect  since J890. The result of this  immense election fund has been to  make the premier and bis cabinet  dictators of the party whose committee of management they ought  be under, the principles of responsible government as administered  with a party system. No individual member of parliament supporting the government is allowed  to haveanyopitiions of his own or  in any way to oppose or fail to  support the course decided upon  by the cabinet. It is trne that  from time to time members supporting the government get up in  the house and criticize adversely  the government policy, but that is  never done without the consent of  the premier, who feels that lie can  afford to allow tho member in  question to fortify himself in his  constituency bys an apparent opposition to a part of the government  policy."  " I was myself a member, of tho  'Dominion house for three years  prior to the general election of  IS!)i>. Binco tho government came  to power I  leugui'S of mine on the Liberal  aide how they could stay in parlia-  ment.and see tbe government depart from-the policy, of the party  us it was understood when they  were in opposition. The answer  has always been that tbe government would take the earliest opportunity of putting, them out of  business. Tins would be done,  they explained to me, by refusing  to allow any of the immense corruption fund accumulated by the'  government from railway subsidies and the manufacturers of  Canada to be used in their particular constituencies. When any Liberal member of parliament lias  been courageous enough in spite of  all these matters, to stand up and  speak for Liberal principles in the  house, the government have sooner  or later closed his career, making  it clear that they would prefer to  have in" parliament a straight-  opponent rather Mian an independent supporter."  "In spite of the fact that both  of the great parties of Canada at  present stand for a protective tariff  it can be demonstrated beyond a  doubt that Canada would be better off in every respect with a  revenue tariff, and if a party should  arise in Canada which would adopt  free trade or a tariff for revenue  only as its policy, I believe that it  would sweep the country."
