[Copyright    1009.   by  Associated   Literary  I'ress.J  V frcus." began Brother  Gardner of the Limekiln  club tlio othor (.'veiling after the routine business of  the meeting hsiil been disposed of, "I  do not wish to be critical, but us de  days go by 1 Mud myself laniciitin' mo'  nnd mo' de finssin' of de simple life  of fo't.v or fifty years a^o. I was  lining up in de old fashioned way, and  "pin nisr.ii snots and heu dresses fit-  THO 15V A  MAN."  I can't git used to dose newfangled  noshuus. Seems like de world had  gone on and left me behind. Seems  like I hud been laid up on de shelf wid  old fashioned things to dry out and  become dust.  "It makes me powerful sorry to note  dat de cull'd people am cuttiu' away  from de simple life far mo' dan de  while folks. Fo'ty years ago arter my  day's work was dun I sot down by  my cabin doah and played de banjo  and was mighty glad to know dat dere  was taters aud co'u meal iu de h.iuse  fur breakfast. Nine o'clock was my  bedtime, aud I was up at G in de  mawniu'. If a white man come along  while I was work-in' in de garden it  wasu't any strain on me to talk wid  liim. I didn't have to rack my brain  fur big w.ords. Sometimes I had hard  cider to drink, but most'of de time it  was only water. If fried oysters and  lobster salad had been invented in  dose days 1 had not heard of 'era. If  I had gone to de barber shop fur a  hair cut Mrs. Gardner would have  thought de jedgment had come. If I  had come In and found her manicurin'  her nails my knees would have wabbled.  "In dose good old days we a to off of  tin plates. If company drapped in of  nn evenin' buttermilk was thought  good miff to pass around fur refreshments. We all talked, but nobody  lugged in Shakespeare and de dictionary. Nobody axed hisself to git up  and sing or recite. De women talked  about caliker dresses instead of de  opera, and de men didn't have any  patent leather shoes to shove into  view. And when de company had departed Mrs. Gardner and me didn't  sit up de rest of de night pitchin' into  'em and tryin' to make out dat dey  was ou de way to de poo'house.  A Good Life.  "It was a simple life, but a good life.  *��������� "lou could leave your spade and hoe  in de garden obeniight and dey were  right dar in de mawniu'. You could  leave de doah of your hencoop unlocked and de hens would be dar next  day. If we traded mewls we p'inted  out de spavins, and we neber come  home at night and found dat de ole  woman had skipped out wid some odder man. We didu't know iiuffln about  politics and we keered less. When we  met up wid a strange man we didn't  wonder^ how much boodle he had got  away wid. but took him as an honest  pusson and gin him a show.  "In dose ole'days when Sunday come  I took Mrs. Gardner on my arm and  walked a mile or mo' to de meetin'  house. We all sot down on hard  benches. We all j*ined in de singin'.  De preacher didn't squint and peek  around befo' begmnin' his sermon to  see how many rich sinners was present, but he jest went right at It slam-  bang'and hit right and left, fie dldn'l  say dut de sinner wuth a mlllyon dollars stood a purty good show of goln'  to heaven, while de sinner wid only n  dollar in his pocket was gwine straight  to de roast In' place, but he put us all  In de same pen. It was jlue de church  or sulphur nnd brlrastun fur rich and  poo' nllke.  "Dar was newspapers In dose days,  and once hi awhile I got hold of one  and spelled de words out.   Dey spoke  respectfully   of  de   government;   dey  wasn't full of pictures for de babies;  you might read a dozen and not And  a society scandal. Husbands and wives  'penred to bo satisfied wid each other,  and dere wasn't any talk 'bout members of de legislature sellln' delr votes.  If do papers differed wid a man's poll-  lies dey didn't call him a linr and a  boss thief to show dat dey were right.  "My frens,  when you  realize what  wan and what is kin you blarao an ole  ���������mm   fur  l-imcntln'  dat  de day  has  passed nebber lo return?   No mo' do  simple life.   it was too slow fur dis  generation.    It was too old fashioned  lo  last    Today  ebeu  de cull'd   man  llliln' In n pole cabin five miles from  anywhere am expected to hum do latest   operatic   n'lra   nnd   drop   French  words now nnd den.  Faults of Brother Jones.  "Befo' us yore tonight am Brudder  Cllveudfim Jone.**. lie nm ono of doso  who hns put de simple life behind him.  To kocp puce wid de world he must  have linen collars, n rod necktie* cuffs  and button-i, and dat diamond pin of  lila nebber cost Km 'n 7ni cento.   Ho  uses nalr lie: lie wears blue suspenders; lie pays 13 cents for his socks. At  home lie lias a cane and a plug hat  for Sunday use. lie hain't happy; ho  can't be happy. lie simply has to do  desc things to keep up wid de procession. If he should fall back eber so  lcelle he would be a goner.  "Befo" us also am Brudder Samuel  Shin. I know fur a fact dat he hung  to de simple life as long as he could  and only gib in when he found de  pressure too much for him. Last week  1 bought some shirts for <1S 'cents each  at a bargain sale. Brudder Shin has  to pay a dollar'apiece for his. De society In which he moves don't countenance bargain sales. Fur $2 I kin buy  at a secondhand store a coat dat de  governor of de state has got tired" of  and cast aside. I kin put on dat coat  and do a heap of sweilin' around ou  Sunday, but Brudder Shin dasn't try  it on. If some one recognized hi in In  de governor's secondhand coat he and  his wife would take such a tumbjo In  society dat you would feel dc jar Ave  miles around.  "Ober by de stove sits Brudder  Whitewash Johnsing. I knowed him  in de old days, when de simple life  was good 'miff for him. lie had no  aims or nmblsliuns to worry him. IIo  jest worked and ate andslept and was  happy. If he found a cokeruut in de  road ho had a feelln' of bliss for a  month afterward. At length de new  way of libin' took hold of his wife,  lie hung out fur a good while, but ho  had to gib in at last. Ills wife wanted a cuckoo clock, a red plush sofa and  a rug wid a tiger on it. She wanted  to go to do theater, and she wanted  lobster salad befo' goiu' home. She  wanted pin heeled shoes and her dresses fitted by a man. Waal, she's got all  dese, but do you reckon" Brudder  Whitewash am any happier fur it? 1  saw tears on his cheeks half an hour  ago. and I have no doubt dat ho was  thiukin' of how be would have to go  home and drink wine and eat sweet-  cake befo' rctirin'.  "Let us not oberlook Brudder Way-  down Bebee. He hung to de simple  life until a year ago. lie used to come  ober to my cabin aud talk about it and  say ho nebber would gib in. But he  had to at last, as 1 predicted. Etis  wife and two gals pecked at him till  he could stand it no longer. lie had a  leetle money saved up for old aige and  was doin' fairly well at whitewashin',  but his family insisted dat he go out  of de bizuess fur delr sakes. IIo had  to go and git his finger nails manicured  befo' dey was satisfied, and den fol-  Icred a cane, a plug hat and patent  leather shoes. lie gin up bis cabin  fur a flat, bought a planner fur his  gals, aud de hull caboodle of 'em go to  de theater once a week. When I called  at his place de odder evenin' on business I,had to send my card up in advance. Whon I got inside I found gilt  clocks, paintings, statuary and pra3*er  rugs Iyin' around loose eberywhere,  aud Mrs. Bebee and dem gals was so  strained up dat I expected to hear  sun thin' bust ebery miuit.  Bebee an'Unhappy Man.  "Make no mistake, my frens. Brud.  der Bebee am not a happy man.  lie's got to appear at a soiree somewhat' oue night next week, and he has  got to look like de owner of de Union  Pacific railroad, but if de case was put  to him he'd tell you dat he would a  heap rather come dowu to my cabin,  slip off his coat and shoes and sot dere  aud eat raw turnips wid me and feel  dat he had got back to natur'.  "1 told you iu de begiuuin' dat I  wasn't goiu' to criticise. 1 haven't. I  have simply held up some pictures to  your gaze. If you like dis newer way  of libin' it hain't fur me to find fault.  I reckon de good Lawd put us yore to  lib 'bout as we wanted to, and If you  want clawhammer coats aud lobster  salad dat's fur you to say. My old  woman has lately taken to wautlu' a  blue parlor set and a clock wid a Cupid  on top, and dere have been reports dat  I wah gibiu' in to her. I brand 'em as  false. De simple life fur me while I  lib, and dar will alus be pumpkin pie  and a glass of buttermilk fur any  member of dis club who draps in of an  ereniu'. Let us now go our devious  ways." M. QUAD.

Advice Free.  Wild Man  of the  Woods Causes Excitement   In  Old  Land.  The "Wild Man from Borneo" is a  less awe-inspiring individual than  the wild man from nearer home. Almost any holiday-maker who 'has had  the good or bad fortune to come across  the wild man of the woods will readily agree with this.  The latter has given many a holiday-maker a scare. Down to a few  years ago, Hadley Woods, a holiday  resort of many Londoners, boasted a  wild man. His name was William  Hodsdon, and he appears to have had  the idea that Hadley Common was  his by right.  Hence he made the woods his home  all the year round. Clothed in little  more than rags, he roved amongst the  trees by day, and at night slept in a  sack, with nothing but the sky for a  roof.  The simple life, however, has its  limits, and finally tlio complaints of  holiday-makers and others caused the  police to pay the wild man a surprise  visit.  They found him in a terribly neglected condition, covered with dirt,  his nails of extraordinary length, and  his hair and beard like tangled rope.  He was loth to leave tho solitude of  the woods in which he had roamed  so long, and the police had considerable difficulty in effecting his removal.  Some time ago a wild man of the  woods was unearthed in the neighborhood of Carlisle. At one time he  had occupied a good position, and in  those clays he answered lo the name  of Richard Brewer.  But, for some reason or other, he  took to the woods, after which nothing  would induce him to return to his old  way of living.  Later on it was deemed desirable  to inquire into his condition of mind,  and a magisterial order was obtained  for this purpose. By this time his  mode of life had given him quite a  weird appearance. His diet on some  occasions consisted of raw meat and  fish, which he had been seen devouring. To- "roosting" in trees and  sleeping in sand-holes habit had made  him quite accustomed.  Dentist (to street singer)���������For heav������  en's sake, man, step Inside and have tt  out!  Food of the Chinese.  In^ the Revue d'Hygiene Dr. Male-  gnon, who lived for many years in  China, gives some curious details of  the food of the Chinese. This is what  he says of the sons of heaven and the  way they eat eggs: "Tho Chinese are  great eaters of eggs, which they take  hard boiled. One finds them in all the  roadside places for refreshment Tho  Celestials have an expression, 'Eggs of  a hundred years.' The eggs are not  always a century in age, but one is  able to get them of many years' standing. Tho Celestials have a preference  for the egg of the duck or goose. They  are placed with aromatic herbs in  slaked lime for a period, the minimum  time of treatment being five or six  weeks. Under the influence of time  the yoke liquefies and takes a dark-  green color. The white coagulates and  becomes green. The product of the  egss. which has a strong odor, from  which a stranger betakes himself  quickly, the Chinese eat as hors  d'oeuvres, and it is said to have the  taste of lobster."  Expense No Object.  During an Inclement spell of weather  a lady of the order of tbe newly rich  was so unfortunate as to coutract a  painful affection of the throat, and she  accordingly accepted the advice of a  friend that she consult a great London specialist noted for his expensive  fees.  "Your ailment Is not a serious one,"  said the specialist after examination.  "You'll soon be all right I'll just indicate to your family surgeon precisely where to touch your throat with  nitrate of silver, and 1 think that will  meet the case exactly."  "Ob. doctor," protested the wealthy  matron in a tone of mingled surprise  and indignation, "do order him to uso  nitrate of gold! Expense is a matter,  I assure you. quite immaterial to mel"  ���������London Answers.  Tndlgnant Scot (as he reads the no-  ticc)���������Na, na; I'll gang dirty first-  Tatler.

"Old Lady's"  New Governor.  Thc monetary world has now a new  monarch in the person of Mr. R. E.  Johnston,  who   has   been   appointed  governor of the Bank of England.  To  describe  Mr.   Johnston's   position   as  regal may be-high-sounding, but it is  not inapt, for tho money market is a  kingdom over which the governor of  the Bank of England consist of about  twenty-five   wealthy   city   men,   who  have generally   invested   heavily   in  bank stock, the $500 shares of which  have nearly trebled in value.   These  gentlemen,  constituting  the board  of  directors, meet every Thursday in the  court-room  to   consider   whether  any  change is necessary in the bank rate,  and to transact business of moment.  ���������Their employes in the bank and its  branches number some 1,200 men, and  about 100 women.   Their annual payroll amounts to over $1,000,000.    The  head cashier, curious enough, receives  more than the governor���������a little matter of $17,500 a year.   The bank is a  generous     employer,     the    pensions  awarded to its old clerks (who must  retire at the age of 05) amounting to  no  less  than  two-thirds of-their  incomes.    Tho governor's responsibility  to the nation is perhaps as great as  that of any man under the King, for  there   are at  least  forty  millions  of  gold stored in the vaults of his estab  lishment.    Happily  the  Old Lady ol  Threadneedle   Street   has   a  military  guard of her own, consisting of thirty-  two   soldiers,   to  say   nothing   of   a  drummer-boy,   who   has   never  been  known (officially) to sound his drum.  Dorking, Where Meredith Lived.  The neighborhood of Dorking has  many literary associations independent of its connection with the famous  novelist just dead. It was at Burford  Bridge, near Dorking, that Keats completed Endymion, in November, 1817;  close by, at the Rookery, was born  Father Malthus, the population economist; at West Humble, Frances Bur-  ney, after, her marriage with Gen.  d'Arblay, built Camilla cottage with  profits of her novel of that name, and  settled down. Sheridan resided at  Polesden, and John Stuart Mill at  Mickleham, while other illustrious  residents in the locality in earlier  times were John Evelyn and Daniel  Defoe. To most people, however, the  chief literary association of Dorking  is with Dickens, for was it not at the  Mnrquis of Granby���������variously identified with the White Hart and the Old  King's Head���������that Mr. Weller, senior,  made the fatal blunder of proposing to  a "vidder "  .  PROTRUDING PILES  Read the evidence that'this distressing   ailment   is  cured   by   DR.  CHASE'S   OINTMENT.,  Some people find it hard to believe  tlmt anything short of a surgical op-  ora'ion will cure protiu ling piles. The  doctors have brought about this belief. There is any nmount of proof  that Dr. Chase's'Ointment is-a .positive cure for this as well as all other  forms of piles.  Captain Win. Smith, Revelstoke,  B. C, writes:���������  "It is with much pleasure I state  you in praise of Dr. Chase's Ointment for itching ������������������protruding piles of  many years .standing and it has completely cured mo. I had previously  tried many other remedies, but- they  did me no good. I would strongly  rccommond this ointment to those  .suffering from this complaint for it  is a good and genuine cure."  Mrs. Captain Clinansmith, Salvation Army, Essex, Out., writes:���������  "It is with pleasure that I write to  you in praise of Dr. Chase's Ointment. Two years ago I was taken  with a severe attack of protruding  piles and became so bad that I had  to keep my bed and could lip. in no  position except on my stomach. Doctors could give me no help and tho  various oils and ointments used proved of'no avail. " '  "One Saturday night when I was  suffering untold agony my husband  went to thc drug store for a box of  Dr. Chase's Ointment which T had  heard of as a,cure for piles. Although  I had almost given- up hope, to the  wonder of those around me I was able  to bo up on Monday and have had no  difficulty from piles since. As a treatment for all kinds of sores and burns  Dr. Chase's Ointment works like  magic."  Dr. Chase's Ointment, 60 cts. a box,  at all dealers, or Edmanson, Bates &  Co., Toronto.

She listened carelessly, scarcely rc-  " plying. In reality her mind was busy.  "with Its own affairs.

Cousin.Nell had seen that  her.' frock was appropriate,  and sho  -   herself had been long enough In the  gay world to learn that the majority  judges one by one's raiment mainly.  Yef" Hills Hubbard seemed to judge  .   her iu different wise". -  "Vou must-be very nice to him,".  Cousin Nell had advised the first day  Mildred was in the house.  "And why?" the girl had inquired.  "Because he is a good match, as good  as there Is to be bad. That counts  very much In my world, Mildred, It  may be that you will charm him, being a type "that he Is * unacqualuted  . with."  ��������� Certainly It seemed that she had  charmed him. Since the first day she  met him he,bad been attentive to her,  sending her.flowers, taking her to ride  In his motor and to lunch at the best  places/ Cousin .Nell was delighted.  And Mildred-thought,It fascinating  business to be thus sought after by a  man whom so many girls had tried unsuccessfully to capture.  She had been quite frank with him  from the first in spite of Cousin Nell,  telling him that her father was only a  poor country doctor and this was the  first time she had been asked to visit  her "cousin. He had seemed not to  mind. Perhaps he had so much money  himself that be did not care whether  the woman he married had a dowry  or not.  As she leaned back in her chair she  was wondering how It would seem to  always have plenty of money, to buy  one's frocks at the best shops, to livo  In a house where the work was done  as by magic, to go about in a blue and  gold motor and be able to hear all the  best music.  Just that afternoon Cousin Nell had  said when, she came in to inspect her  -   toilet:  "You understand, Mildred, that Mr.  Hubbard will have something to say to  you before you go home. 'There Is but  one answer for you to make, and 1 am  sure he expects that one."  "But���������but I'm not certain I care for  him enough," Mildred had stammered.  Nell had stared at her.  "My dear child! Do you think that  any one in these days marries for love  alone?'  "I didn't know." the girl said humbly. Then she thought of her cousin's  elderly, husband, who Mas seldom visible save at breakfast time, and the  hitherto concealed reason for Nell's  strange marriage was suddenly revealed to her.  Mildred had indeed experienced  much since coining into ber cousin's  house. Noue of the golden rules which  her parents had taught her were applicable here. Other Ideals were cherished, other aims kept in sight At  . first it had been very mystifying to the  girt to Ond.that the teachings of ber  whole lifetime were of no account. It  wns as If she bad taken great pains to  acquire Latin only to find that French  watj demanded of her.  Her father and mother had married  for love. Money they knew~to_be a  great good which one could yet bo  happy without The poorest person  was as good as the wealthiest, provided he was of moral character.

'��������� ..'���������������������������������������������   .��������� ���������  She was the wlfo of a notable rich  man and very agreeable. In Harlln  she would have been looked upon with  suspicion, but hero she was courted.  Yes. money wns a wonderful thing.  It brought one so much. Even if she  did not love Mr. Ilubbiird she could no  doubt be very hiippywlrh hjin. To bo  able to wear a dress like that gray vel-  rct and black furs with long silver  'hairs In them, each one of which represented a purseful of money, nnd rubles like Mrs. Ogden'sl  The girl drew a long breath nnd  stirred uneasily. What would her father and mother suy? Whut would  Tom think? Sho bit her lip na tho  memory of hls'briivo yet tender fuce  possessed her. She could almost bear  liltn saying: ,  "Now, look here, Daffy-Down-DIIly,  you n'ro going up to town to visit your  flue, coiislu, and she'll* havo .some fellow picked outt for you, I know. Ho'll  be rich and- lin-V different, and that���������  will end my chance, which always was  mighty, poor, wasn't It, dear? If It  | wasn't you'd say one word, and then  I wouldn't feel so entirely down and  but as I will be If you go without say-  ���������ing it."  ; 'She had not said tbe word, and so  she was quite.free as far as Tom was  concerned'to' marry Hills Hubbard If  she chose. With a start 'she . came  back to reality and the sound of his  voice.- ., ���������  ''.You can understand that everybody  is watching Miss Steuben with n great  deal of interest. But there is no doubt  .in my mind that the Englishman will  win out."  "What makes you think so?" Mildred  asked... , . ���������  "Because. That's a woman's reason,  1 know; but, as I say, It involves a  good deal. The American, you see. has  only his business prospects and for the  present an average'living.' The Englishman has a fine old home, ancestry  of 'the best, acres and tenants aud a  coronet about to drticend upon his aristocratic head." i  Mildred sighed and looked again at  the girl in blue. She was very pretty  as she stood with her back to a great  mass of daffodils particularly, but now  something about them set her heart to  beating quickly with memories " of  home. A month later there would bo  a great showing of, them in the llttlo  'garden sho and her' mother tended.  The dear, dear things! Nell'had-ordered them simply because .they looked well against the wall paper of her  drawing room, but to Mildred's girlish  -fancy they were vital, appealing. .They  meant home, the country, springtime���������  yes.and Tom, walking toward her, his  face full of Joy at sight of her.  Oh, they had no business to be here  In this hot, crowded room, jostled by  furs^and velvets, simple; open air blossoms that they were! ��������� No one apparently was aware of them save herself  and the girlJn blue, who,, had drawn  one from thenar and was pulling it to  pieces.    ���������   ������������������'-  A~woman came across the.room,.set  her cup down upon the table, smiled  at Mildred and leaned toward .Hills  Hubbard.  "I have,something to tell you which  I just now heard on "the best authority," she sald._ "You have lost "your  wager, my dear boy. Love wins. Miss  Bertha Steuben marries the American  after all."  "Is that possible?" he exclaimed. "I  would not have believed it of her"."  "Nor I. Thank you, no more tea. my  dear Mlss^Verrel. I am just leaving."  She made her adieus and passed on  gayly. Mildred's eyes, with a new expression in them, were again on the  girl in blue. _  He turned sharply.   -  "You would do it yourself?"  "Yes," Mildred said.  -He studied her a moment.  "Yes, I. believe you would," he said,  "but In your case there are no parallel  circumstances.  May I come tomorrow  when you are alone, dear, and explain  to you what I mean?"  Mildred turned white, but she faced  him bravely.  * "No," she gasped. -"No. It would be  of no use. -You see, I have Jus* made  up my mind to go home tomorrow." It's  the best place for me, I think, nnd  they want me, father and my mother  and''��������� She stopped abruptly,-with a  vivid blush.  "Ah, I see!" Hills Hubbard said. He  -looked very straight before him for an  instant.  In Mildred's ears were ringing tho  absurd old nursery rhyme with which  Tom had teased her before she set  forth to visit her c,ous!n Nell:  DafCy-Down-DIlly has gone tip to town  In   her  yellow   petticoat  and  her  eieen  gown.  But Daffy-Down-DHly was going  home from town to be happy with her  own.  KIPLING SEES DISASTER.  Predicts Trouble as a Result of Present Social Tendencies.'  National disaster from present-day  tendencies   of   the   National   Government is prophesied in a long poem by  Rudyard Kipling, which the Morning  _Post prints.    '  ~" Describing the citizens of an imaginary state, "The City" of Brass," he  tells how they, started to "decree h  new earth at a birth without labor or  sorrow " ' .  Their administrative ideas arc thus  described: ���������    *  They said* "Who has hate in the soul?  Who has envied his neighbor?  Let him  arise and oontrol both  that  man and his labor."  They said:   "Who is eaten'by sloth?  * Whos-s unthrift has destroyed him?  He shall levy a tribute from all because none have,employed him."  They say: "Who has toiled? Who hath  striven and gathered possession?  Let him be spoiled; he hath given full  proof of transgression."  They razed  their ramparts to convert them into pleasure grounds, encouraged  rebellion in  their colonies,  flung  away the  Imperial  possehsion**  their forefathers gained,* scouted iuith'  and endeavor, and derided the idea of  restraint.  Nemesis comes when thoy aro steeped in self-satisfaction in the form of a  hostile host, and the poem concludes:  The eaters of other men's bread, the  exempted from hardship.  For the hate they had taught through  the State brought the State no  defender,  it passed  from  the  roll  of the  nations in headlong surrender."  CANADIAN IN LONDON.  And  A Fading Art.  The art of carving is disappearing  among the * Maoris of New Zealand.  There is no demand for war canoes  now, except from world's fairs and  Paris expositions. In the olden days,  the chief's house, the storehouse, undt  the posts of the village stockade were  ornamented with carved figures. But.  the rainy climate,of the country and  other causes have been fatal to these  monuments.- "One must go to thc  museums to see specimens, of "this  fading art. ���������   -    "  ' .The "haka" is the war" dance or  call to arms of old Maoriland. Stripped to the waist, the men arrange  themselves in two files and begin to  chant in a low tone, a woman giving  them the time. They turn right and  left, stamping and waving their arms,  till* they work themselves up to a  prodigious pitch of fury expressed'by  lolling eyeballs and deafening roars.  Standing. to one side, , the woman  "leader" urges them on to the  climax. They give one thundering  stamp, and thrust out their tongues  as far as they can. This was the  supreme act of defiance to the foe.  In the olden days if was no lignt matter to attend a "haka." Then each  warrior brandished .a heavy greenstone club, ".and once heated to the  pointed of battle frenzy, would hardly cool down, even at a play ''haka,"  without clubbing somebody just to  keep his hand in practice.

Not Suited for His Mouth  Aunt Ann Arkwright, ine bustling  spouse of Uncle Joshua Arkwright,  proudly showed him a silver implement which a friend had given her as  a birthday present. It was shaped  something like a spatula, but broadened consideably towards the handle'  Uncle Joshua inspected it with some  curiosity.  "What is it?" he asked.  "Haven't you any idea?" she said.  "No, not the least in the world."  "Well," said Aunt, 'Ann, "It's a pie-  knife."        ���������. t>  Uncle Joshua picked it up, inspected it critically, and laid it down  again.  "I haven't any use for it," he said,  as far as I'm concerned. It's too  wide. I couldn't cat pie with it  'thout cutting my mouth."  What  He  Wants     -  "I.understand your boy is looking  for a job?"  "No.    Mistaken .idea.    It's a-soft  snap he wants."  The Lady and the Cobra.  An Englishwoman residing in India  one evening found tp her horror thnt a  huge cobra had colled itself about her  veranda rails,' near which she sat playing the violin. She was too near the  snake to run with safety, so she continued playing while she gradually  edged a-way. At first her only idea  was to keep the creature thus engaged  while she escaped, but when she had  gained a safer distance and perhaps  fascinated by the unwonted sight a  strange Inspiration "seized her. She  played air after air of different characters.  The effect was magical. That snake  behaved like an ardent, hot blooded  disciple of PaganinL Every variation  in the music, whether of volume or of  tone, produced instantly a corresponding change In the attitude of the cobra.  If she played a lively dance it swayed  its body sideways In quick time and  yet In graceful curves. Once she struck  a number of false notes In rapid succession on purpose. The cobra winced  and writhed In pain, as If suddenly  struck with a whip.   '  Thus the creature behaved like a  mad musician till the lady, getting  ^Ircd of the sport, gradually moved  herself farther and farther and then  made a sudden boltjnto her room and  banged the door, leaving the cobra to  wander disconsolate to Its lair in the  fields.���������London Chronicle.

The costermonger's love for his donkey was demonstrated recently at the  People's Palace, Mile End road, London. Nearly 200 donkeys, carefully  groomed, with their owners standing  by them in their Sunday best, were  exhibited under the auspices of Our  Dumb Friends' League.  Many of the costeimongers declared  that they would not part with their  little animals for untold gold. "Here's  the foundation of all my little fortune," said William Witt, an East  End coal dealer, as he stroked his  sturdy prize winner, Lazy Lightning.  "Five years ago I was dead bioke;  I bonowed 30 shillings to buy my  little pal here"���������patting the donkey  again. t  "First my donkey carried coal from  street to street on a barrow; but  gradually my trade grew. Now I've,  got three little shops, and a farm out  in tho country. But it was the don-  key-that turned my luck and put me  on the right road. Out at the farm  there's a nice green field, with shady  trees in it. As soon as this show's  over that's where my donkey's going,  to end his days just doing nothing  but enjoy the green grass���������and rest."  Many prizes were awarded to the  best-groomed donkeys. A challenge  cup nnd a set of hanie'ss, given by  the Queen, were won by Jenny, a  smart little donkey that pulls the  barrow of a wood and coke hawker.

The following brief account of his  arrival and welcome in London and  of his first night in the world's capital, was handed in at the Daily  Chronicle>office by a Canadian journalist who had gone to England in  search of work:���������  "I arrived, in England on Saturday  last, having worked a passage as cattleman from Montreal. I had no  money to draw from the 'shipping  company (having walked aboard the  vessel without going through the  formality of obtaining the owners'  leave), and I was therefore compelled  to walk from Tilbury Docks.  "First impressions do not go for  much with me, but from Tilbury to  London is the worst stretch of scenery  I've ever struck. It was a long ,and  tiring walk, and when 1 reached Fleet  street���������about which I had heard so  much���������everybody except the inaccessible sub-editors had either just gone  or was just going for the holidays.  "I had a Canadian quarter in my  pocket, and an obliging firm of money  changers ga <e me an English shilling  for it���������more than they ought to have  dene, I, believe. I went to a neighboring restaurant and did myself well  for 8d. Then I had a shave, which  left me with 2d.  "Having heard much about the horrors of the Embankment, I 'determined  to spend the night here. It was now  nearly 10 o'clock, and as I walked  along by the black river I was painfully struck by the contrast between  the magnificence of this wonderful  boule/ard and the ugliness of its frequenters' poverty.  "Mevi and women slept in corners  of the seats, and their huddled figures  gave them the appearance of having  become parts of the fixtures. All the  time motor-cars whizzed by, and the  feet of the hansom 'cab horses .tap-  tapped along the roadway.  "I sat down to rest, and soon began  to doze fitfully, conscious even in my  sleep that it was growing cold. Suddenly, I, felt a' heavy hand on my  shoulders, and the rays from a policeman's lantern dazzled my eyes.  " 'Come, wake up; you caii't-sleep  'ere!' It was a police officer; and his  gaze followed me curiously as I walked ih the -direction of the Parliament  House.  "Under an arch stood a coffee-stall  bearing the'following inscription:  Coffee, l-2d.  Slice, 12d.  -''The brightly polished urn hissed  an invitation which I resisted as long  as possible. But I was wet and hungry, and the early morning hour (it  was nearly 1 a.m.) was bitterly cold.  How good that slive tasted I How delicious the coffee I I stayed quite a  long time at the stall, for the man  was communicative, and discoursed  on the Budget, the lady suffragette,  and international cricket.  "Then I made my way to the Charing Cross Railway Station, and, being  fairly well dressed, was allowed to  sleep unmolested in a waiting-room.  When I awoke it was daylight, and  the sun streamed through the window. I still had a penny in my  pocket, and, as Oliver Twist reflected, 'a penny is a very comfortable  thing to have.'

VISCOUNT KITCHENER  A  Brief  Who  Biography  of,.Soldier  l ' May Visit Canada. '  General Horatio Herbert, first Viscount Kitchener of Khartoum���������who  has just completed the great work he  undertook in 1902 of reorganizing the  British Indian Army���������was born on  Midsummer Day at Ballylongford, in  the County Kerry. \  During his exceptionally brilliant  military career the retiring Indian  commander has asserted himself with  characteristic confidence and unbending will, and Lord Kitchener must be  accounted one of the most strenuous  soldiers that the British Empire has  ever possessed.  Coming of a military family, Lord  "Kitchener passed thirty-eight years  ago from Woolwich into the Royal  Engineers Since then "his cc������-eer has  been one of scintillating brilliance,  for "K. of K."���������as. he is now often  called "for short"���������has been to the  fore in many expeditions and campaigns, and has "built himself an  everlasting name" for thoroughness  in thc profession of arms.  A veritable "glutton for work," he  assisted in the Palestine survey in  1874-73 and that of Cyprus of 1878-82.  Then he was sent to Egypt, and  entrusted with the command of the  Khedive s cavalry and the remodelling  of the native army. Having effected  this to his own exacting desiring, he,  as Sirdar, conducted a vigorous opposition to the forces of the Khalifa.  He found it necessary to build a railway to Omdurman before he finally  broke the power of the prophet, annihilating the Khalifa's army in 1898.  By this time he had reached the  rank of major-general and been made  a K.C.B., and ho came home covered  with Egyptian honors, to receive the  thanks of the British Parliament, a  peerage, and a grant of ,������30,000.  In the yeir following, when matters  seemed to be going wrong with our  forces engaged against the Boers in  South Africa. Lord Kitchener was  sent out as Chief of Staff to Lord  Roberts. Here, again, he distinguished himself for determination and dash  in combination; and when Cronje had  been circumvented at Paardeberg and  the British flag hoisted in Pretoria,  he was promoted to the commander-  ship of the forces in South Africa on  Lord Roberts' return to England.  Kitchener brought the long campaign tc a close. Again the gallant  fighter and fine organizer was thanked by Parliament, given a further  ������50,000 from the country's public  purse, and raised in the peerage to  a viscounty.  As a full general he was sent out in  1902 to India as Commander-in-Chief,  with practically a frae hand to reform  the army of our great Empire of the  Orient. His ideals of duty brooking  no civilian interference in matters  military, Viscount Kitchener soon  came into conflict with the then  Viceroy. Lord Curzon, and the friction ensued in the resignation of that  able statesman in 1905.  -- Since then Lord * Kitchener has  practically been permitted to have his-  own way at .headquarters in India;  and on the completion of his task in  the Orient, he is" credited by some  with hankering after overthrowing the  influence of the non-military element  in the War Office for good and all.

Yet a letter from  the office of Superintendent of Buildings at Zoomba, Nyassaland, assures  me that this is so. The venture is  successful, too. Mr. Hackett, of  Frome, Somerset, is the intrepid pioneer, and the letter I have received  states that "his exhibition has attracted the natives bv tho thousand."

I was engaged for the  defence in a case of robbery. Two  men, the prisoners, had seized the  prosecutoi on the platform of Shrewsbury Station, and while one of them  held his arms the other quietly rifled  his pockets.  They were caught red-handed, and  I had a brief to defend the prisoner  who had held the prosecutor by the  arms. I made the obvious defence.  I urged that it was vindictive to  sacrifice two victims to justice when  one would suffice, that the distinction between the two prisoners was  manifest, and as the one I defended  had not taken any money at all it  was impossible to pretend that he  was as guilty as his companion.  To the amazement of everybody,  not excepting the chairman���������who had  been careful in his summing up to  sweep away my sophistries���������the jury  made tlie distinction I suggested to  them,    and    returned   a    verdict   of  After making a most careful study  of the matter, U."
