Direct as  lior name, she refused to marry Henry  Jasper.^ He stood before her a little  ���������awkwardly, but yet a mnn that most  ���������women would have considered kindly.  He was not forty, well off for Ihe simple community, highly respected, and  his wife, Caroline, had been dead three  years. Being u more iiuiii, how could  he know that Ann, his old schoolmate,  hud sult'ei-ed agonies when as a young  innn he had coin-led and married her  cousin?  No one knew why Ann had not married. She never wore her heart on her  sleeve. Xow, in spite of herself, ber  heart softened lo lilni, uoiing how his  hand ruffled bis hair us It always did  when ho wus puzzled and unhappy.  ���������J never did think I could be second  best in iiny mini's life." she went on  rather cruelly. "And I don't see how  at my use, thirty-five, and I don't cure  who knows It���������I don't see how 1 can  beuin playing mother to another'woman's child. The boy will hate me, as  nil children do a stepmother. No; ask  Rome other woman." The man flushed  nnsrrily.  "Don't insult me. Ann. You know 1  don't want any other woman. I've al-  ���������ways���������you know I can't toll you what  ] always ihmifdii of you. It wouldn't  seem fair to Caroline, who did ber best  by me."  The   world   knew   sho   bad   been   a  weak, ifretful, untidy woman, jealous,  thriftless,  her baby beauty gone in a  few years.  And it knew of his loyalty.  He could not tell this woman how in  tbe years she had heen about his house  helping Caroline  his   heart  had  gone  out   to   Ann's   cheery   strength,   her  wholesome, healthy kindness. Ee tried  one word more.  "Ann, if you knew how I needed yon  " In every way you would come.  Do you  flunk I have forgotten how to love?"  Pi ill she shook ln>r head.   He turned  slowly awny, climbed   into his buggy  nnd drove to liis own farm.   Ann sat  thinking,  for  she   remembered   many  things.  She finally.rose and went into  - her sisler's house, where she was visiting.   Molly looked at Imr curiously ns  she entered, waiting to be told something,   for  she   had  guessed   nenry's  ' errand.   But she was forced to respect  Ann's silence.  In Ihe crisp September morning Ann  started out 'or a walk. She went over  the hill wliPi-e she used to play with  Molly nnd with Henry ancl Caroline.  How strangely things hart worked out!  She thought'of'her busy life ns forewoman in a big shop, her practical,  busy, useful, lonely life. How soon  her visit to the old "place would be  over! Reaching the top of lhe hill, she  *snt down in the falling leav*>s. pushing  the heavy dar I; hair back from her  face. Her big eyes were soft and kind  and dark, like an animal's oyos. She  w-.-is (all and vigorous.  Down in the valley she could see  Henry Jasper's house nnd barnyard.  He was hitching the bays to Ihe buggy, and presently he drove awny. A  sudden temptation assailed her. She  hnd heard Molly say his most recent  housekeeper hud left. Should she go  nnd have a look at things? She did not  see the boy ubnut. Probably .Mmmy  was at bis grand mother's. She rose  and walked across the stubble.  The door was locked, but she found  the key under (he- mat and entered.  She could have groaned at sight of the  kitchen���������dishes unwashed, floor ditto,  disorder rampant. The sitting robin,  the bedroom, everything was a sorry  sight to her housewifely eye, for she  " was first and always a housekeeper.  Things had beeu bad enough in Caroline's time, but now they were impossible. ' .     -  She had no compunction about, entering. She had always been In and  out before she went to the city.. He  would not care. She looked at the  clock and calculated that he could not  get back fronb town under two hours.  Then she rolled up her sleeves nnd  skirt and went to work���������dishes first,  then the door, then sweeping, dusting  und making beds. Before she knew  it three hours had gone and it was  noon. She found a bite to eat and decided lo go on even if he caught her  at it.   She did not care.  Knowing it would take weeks to get  everything as it should be, she chose  those points to put to fights flint would  make  for sheer comfort.    She   made  some   ph-s   mid   ginger   cookies   and  doughnuts and boiled some corned beef  from the barrel, trying not to see the  condition the cellar was in. The afternoon wore on, nud still Henry did not  return. '. She mended some of Jimmy's  cloi lies, "poor'child!  She bad decided thnt she would keep  . at work ns Jong as possible and then  sllde.ont. the buck way when she saw  hitn  coining,  but  it was   not. to  be.

In Ihe most tin-  boylike fashion, snatched her about  the neck und kissed her. Then he fell  asleep'.- ,;  liy this time she had no thought of  going back till the child's father cauie.

It was ucarlnt? fi  o'clock.  Alter a little Jimmy awoke nnd  without warning began to cry, refusing to tell what troubled hlin, but denying I hat It was his foot. Finally  Ann got a low rocker, took the child in  her arms and began lo rock him.  CJreat boy that ho was, he snuggled to  her. his unloved little heart accepting  the comfort. I rust Ing this soft voiced,  smiling.. mother armed woman who  called herself Aunt Ann.  As she sat thlfs, her attention quite  absorbed. Henry Jnsper came wearily  to the kitchen door, his arms loaded  with groceries, his race hopeless. He  bad.been wondering where to look for  Jimmy, who. had been allowed that  morning lo go to a neighbor's.  Then with unbelieving joy he saw  the clean room, (he spread table, the  new air of comfort, and, best of all, In  Ann Mark's kind arms he saw his  sleeping motherless child���������a child nearly ns uninothered before his own mother's death as after it. Sho looked up at  Iiitii and smiled.  "lie cut his foot and came home crying. I came over, and when I snw so  much to do I went to work. 1 knew  you wouldn't mind, Henry."  Mind! The hard thing was thnt she  should come just to go again; that she  should give him a taste of this calm  comfort, let him see her like this and  deny him a continuance of it. lie was  \ory miserable lu his gratllude.  "Put your packages on the sink."  she commanded, "and when I have laid  Jimmy down I will put them a way.  Will you open lhe oven door and look  at the biscuit?" He obeyed her, then  stood looking while sho deftly put  everything in its place. Tlie milk pail  shiningly waited for him to take it  and go out to milk, but he lingered.  And Jimmy awoke and wanted to tell  his father about the enormous fish thai  nibbled nt his hook nnd got almost  caught and how he hnd cut his foot ou  the broken bottle and found Aunt Ann  to bind it up.  "Supper is ready, nnd you had better  eat before you do the rest of the  chores. Henry," she said, helping the  boy to limp to his place.  They ate joyfully, talking, laughing,  the man wondering how many minutes would pass before she rose lo go.  The future yawned emptily. She wns  asking him about his housekeepers,  what he paid them, advising him wh.-u  ho should do. Finally when she rose  he rose too. They stood facing each  other, and her clear eyes smiled.  "You arc��������� Oh. Ann. you have been  good!" he said awkwardly. "Shall I  hitch up and drive you home, or will  you walk?" So he had taken her at  her word. It was evident that he had  no thought of anything permanent in  all this. But the woman had. She  saw here her place, her opportunity.  The old hurt and anger had passed,  and she was again at heart the simple  girl who had loved in secret this man  who -was at last hers. She paused a  moment, still looking at him. There'  was now no thought of being "second  best." She would make herself all to  them.  "I'll wash the dishes up first, nnd  (lien after you have done the chores  you can walk back with me."

They were discussing tbe client  tiaits of old Squire Uregsuu's character, the funeral being a thing of the  past. ���������'Somw way or 'nother, between  bis goin' an" the bury in", nobody felt  free to speak," Abel Nutting bad said  as an Introduction to his remarks.

"lie was, free to give to philanthropy  an' the church," said Barton Sedgwick  when his turn came, "but In the faiu'-  ly circle 1 called him kind o' close. 1  won't go so fur's to say he was aetu'l-  ly nigh, but be curt'uly was kind o'  close."  "As how?" inquired three voices in  unison. They all bad plenty of instances of the old squire's "closeness,"  but il was Barton's privilege to speak  first, lie being a cousin once removed.  "Well. 1 was there to a Sunday dinner with him last December," said  B.-irton slowly. "He luvlted Sally an'  me, same as always, once a year.  "Well. Sally had one o' those stuffy  colds that make you feel worse'n if  you had pneuinouy. an' she vowed she  wouldn't go. She said she couldn't  taste any thing anyway, an' the mere  thoughts o' his cold pork an' boiled  potatoes went against her. But she  wanted I should go for policy, same as  all us relations went, an' 1 did.  "Well, when I got there an' "told  squire he said, 'Sally not eomin'!' au'  clipped It right out Into the kitchen,  leaviu' the doors open all the way.

"And now," he said, in closing the.  ceremony, "I hope you fully realize  the extreme importance of the step  you are taking, ancl that you are prepared for it."  "Prepared!" she said, innocentlv.

In those days, the makers were working  on the wrong idea.    They were trying to .  find a way to finish Underwear so that it  would not shrink, instead of trying to find  a   way' to get the shrink,out the  vyool  before . the ,yarn   went   to * the  knitting  machines.1 " ���������  _ 'i  The late C.

'  Living in Nova Scotia, he soon realized  that woolen underwear, and the best of  pure woolen underwear, was the only kind that would 'and could protect  the Canadian against the rigorous Canadian Winter. ., He found that as  underwear was then made, he could not make, woolen underwear that  would not shrink, mat and harden. He devoted himself to. this problem  and after many years of experimenting, he# finally discovered a method  by which he could take the shrink out of the wool before the garments  were knitted. ���������  '"'  ��������� -  This method, improved and perfected, has made possible the immense business  of Stanfield's Limited, with a larger output of their special classes of Underwear-  than any other factory in Canada. ,  The Stanfields make underwear today because Canadian people find Stanfield's  Underwear the most comfortable, the most durable, and the warmest for its weight,  The Stanfields are making more underwear every year because the  buying public demands more of it.

Most pantomime characters were originally borrowed from the Italians. The  first real English pantomime was pro  duced at a theater in Lincoln's Inn  Fields in 1720. It was called "Harlequin Kxccuted." and its subtitle was  "A New Italian Comic Scene Between  a Scaramouche. a Harlequin, a Country Farmer. His Wife and Others."  The performance was very successful.  About the middle of the eighteenth  century the character of pantomime  performances was completely altered,  chiefly because of (he genius of the  famous (Jriinnidl. who made the clown  the lirst figure ln������lhc pantomime. (Jrl-  maldl first appeared at Sadler's Wells  theater, where he played the part of a  monkey. He was actively engaged on  the stage for forly-nine years, and at  the close of his career he took a benefit at Prury Lane theater which realized nearly ������000. He also received ������100  from the Dniry Lane fund. This was  in June. 1.S2R He died In 1837 mid was  burled In the churchyard of St. James'  chanel. Pentnnvlllr* Hill.  Decorative Exchange.

The effect consists of the impossibility of seeing anything ou the outside  unless the observer directs his line uf  sight within forty-eight degrees of the  vertical. If a forty-nine degree angle or  over is takpu, the surface, no matter  how clear the water Is, acts as a perfect mirror and reflects objects at the  bottom of the water, thus not allowing  anything on the outside to be seen.  The consequeuee of this property Is  the most startling of all, for everything  ou the outside can be seen and thus  has to be seen in the cone described  by the forty-eight degree angle from  the eye. This shows nil outside objects huddled together and appearing  high in air. Thus, if one dives into tho  middle of a wide river, on looking up  the banks will appear close together,  but, at a great distance from the observer, high in air. -   ���������  This angle is called the "critical" angle and of course varies with tlie two  media In contact.

" .- Limited.  315-317   Mclntyre'' Block,    Winnipeg.  , A Great Deal of Work Is Being Done  on  Its Navy'Yard.  It is not generally realised that the  naval harbor works" at Dover have  been in hand for twelve years. Dover  was used as a base for the fleets  which the Romans maintained for the  suppression of the pirates of Northern Europe. Sir Walter Raleigh recommended Dover for development as  a naval base, and Henry VIII. did  much for its benefit, building a new  pier there.-  In more recent times Dover has  been the subject of much talk and  comparatively little action. Three  royal commissions sat on a proposal  to build a harbor_there in the middle  of,last century���������one in -1840, another  in ,18-14, and a third in the following-  year. "All-that resulted, however, was  the Admiralty Pier, begun in 1847 and  not - completed until' twenty years  after.  Many years later the Dover Harbor Board brought forward a scheme  for the commercial development ot  the port, and their plans were actually  sanction in 1891. Soon after,- how.  ever, they were modified owing to tho  decision of the Admiralty to construct  there a "national harbor of refuge,"  the contract for which was let to  Messrs. Pearson & Son in 1895, and;  wtiich the Prince of Wales opened recently.  .The work has been a tedious one,  ancl it is open to doubt���������in naval  circles, to openly expressed doubt���������  whether the place will' ever be worth  what has been spent'on it! The'result of the twelve year's work is ii  naval harbor 610 acres in extent, ancl  a tiny commercial harbor (by courtesy) of eighty acres. The harbor is  enclosed by the Admiralty Pier, 4,00')  feet long, the "eastern arm," 3,32'J  feet, long, and the detached southern  breakwater, 4,200 feet long. In addition, a sea wall 3,850 feet long was  built in connection with the reclamation of twenty-three acres of land at  the eastern end of the harbor. During  the twelve years of work, as many as  two thousand men have been employed at one time. ��������� . '  " The conduction of the eastern arm  and of the Admiralty Pier extension  were proceeded with simultaneously.  Most of the concrete blocks used  weighed forty tons each, and were  placed in position by powerful cranes.  Three of^these machines always followed each other on tho works, the  first preparing the sea bed, the second  placing the blocks, and the third  working the great diving bells for un:  der-water work. The gantries for the  crane railways were made of Australian blue-gem, ��������� specially ' selected in  the tree by a'representative of Messrs.  Pearson, sent to Tasmania for the  purpose. Each of the piles was about  100 feet long, and their value, when  prepared, was $2,500 each.  Old  iron  Ships.  Modern war vessels become obsolete  with ruinous rapidity; but the mercantile marine shows many instances  of iron vessels now in regular service  at ages rivalling those of the ancient  timber fabrics. Readers will recall  the disastrous wreck of the New Zealand steamer Penguin on Cape Tera-  whiti; but it will surprise many to  learn that this vessel was built on  the Clyde as far back as 1864 by- Tod  and MacGregor, the historic, builders  of Jules Verne's famous blockade-  -runner. Thc same year saw thc graceful Iona, still accounted a model  craft, take the water from J. and G.  Thomson's yard.  In 18f>3 the Lough Foyle was launch-,  ed' by J. Barr; Glasgow, in 1846 the  Mary Jane by Tod and MacGregor,  and in 1844 the Edinburgh Castle by  Smith and Roger. These packets, under other and well-known names, arc  still in active service, and are to  all appearance as staunch now as  when they were launched over half a  century ago, though the firms who  built them have long disappeared.  Steel vessels have yet to prove their  relative durability, as the oldest example now running is probably the  comparatively youthful and popular  Royal Mail steamer Columbia, built  in 1878 of mild steel from the mills  of the Steel Company of Scotland.���������  Chamber's Journal.

Apart from the inadvisability of  mixing np Dominion arid provincial . matters in this country,  there is an unpleasant significance  in Mr. Aylesworth's answer. Vancouver is approximately 3,000  miles from Ottawa, but ib is one of  the leading cities of tho Dominion  of Canada. Ifc is not Vancouver's  fault' that inhabited Canada has  .3,000 miles of length by a small  proportionate width. ��������� If Vancouver finds that on account of this  distance from the- capital it cannot  receive attentiou from tbe Dominion ministers, but that they  feel like turning their matters  over to the E., C. provincial ministers, Vancouver may soon begin  to wonder what is the use of its  belonging to the Dominion of  Canada, ab-all.
