'������  i  [Copyright, li**7, by Homer Sprague.]  : Mr. and Mrs. Bowser had taken a  Beat on the front steps after dinner  when ii young* woman poorly dressed  passed the gate with slow steps. He  watched her until she disappeared  around the corner and then said:  . "That poor woman Is in trouble, aud  I wish I had gone down to the gate  and spoken to her. She is making for  the river, and so far us we know it Is  with the intention of committing suicide."  "I think that same woman called  here the other day and was intoxicated," replied Mrs. Bowser.  "1 don't believe anything of the kind.  No one with that hopeless, dejected  look gets It from whisky. You could  see by her very walk that she was  tired of life and Its troubles. I wouldn't  have such a flinty heart as you for all  thc money In the world. Haven't you  got a spark of sympathy for any human being?"  "Plenty of sparks for those who arc  worthy, if I wanted that woman to  wash or Lron she wouldn't come for $2  a day.   There was a man here today  ���������*rOUHO WOMAN, I SHOULD IiIKE TO SPRAK  A FKW WORDS TO YOU."  asking for an old coat, and I offered  him a quarter to cut thc grass.   lie  turned away as if I had Insulted him."  "But he wasn't hungering for human  sympathy," protested Mr. Bowser. "He  -was a man and a tramp.    The other  ���������was a woman who was crushed with  troubles.   I shouldn't be the least surprised  to  see  by  the 'papers  in  the  morning that she had leaped into the  river and ended all."  "That may be the best thing she  : could do."  She Needed Kind Words.  : "Well, if that isn't brutality then I  don't know the English language!  Mrs. Bowser, If that poor woman does  commit suicide then you are a murderess! Who can say that a few kind  words from you would not have saved  her, and yet you saw her dragging her  weary way along and never even gave  her a look of pity."  "What had I to do with it any more  than you?" asked Mrs.'Bowser. "You  could have stopped her and assured  her of your sympathies. In fact, I  was waiting for you to do so."  "You were waiting for nothing, unless it was to see her fall down In a  faint. Even then you would have begrudged her a smell of a camphor bottle. It is a few people such as you  that make this world cold aud cruel.  Imagine the feelings of "that poor woman on her way to the river! Here  you sat, stiff as a poker, well dressed  and looking content, and as she surveyed you with pleading eyes she received only a cruel stare in return.  She will have a^ picture of you right  before her eyes as she goes to her  death."  "But she hasn't gone yet ������ She's  standing dow-n there ou the corner  thinking it over. You might go down  and assure her of your pity and interest and offer her a quarter not to commit suicide. If you walk around for  i an hour you will meetrwith several  other cases."  Mr. Bowser Decides to Act.  "By the ten tons of beeswax." shouted Mr. Bowser as his face got red and  his hair began to curl, "but I'll do .it!  I'll not have this house pointed out as  the residence of .two barbarians. 1  ' am not a,rich.man, and I can't found  ��������� hospitals nor glvo thousands to the  poor, but I can let my fellow men  know that I have a heart and arn willing to do my mite. Mrs. Bowser, when  I return I want a talk with you���������a long  talk. If I have been living with a savage all these years I want to know Jt  and make a change. I think you can  hold yourself in readiness to takn the  10 o'clock train for your mother's tomorrow."  With that he walked down the steps  and out of the gate. The dejected  young woman saw him coming down  the street and went her way, but "he  soon overtook her. Her humped shoulders and dragging feet excited new  pity, and as soon as near enough he  ;uald:  I "Young "woman, I should like to  upeak a few words to you."  ��������� She stopped and turned to face him  II������ looked for tears In her eyes, but  there, were none. He looked sfor lines  of grief In her face, but they were  taking a late summer vacation.  "Well,  what's tho row now?' she  asked as he hesitated.  "There is no row. You are in trouble, and I am one who would help you  out"  "How am I in trouble?"  "I don't know. I am going to ask  yoa to tell me. If you feel that life is  no longer worth the living and If you  are contemplating suicide"���������  "G'wan with you I" she Interrupted,  with u wave of her hand. 'Tin having  V Idi ,<tf Bhlndj;. wlUvny. I'JiHl.mn'L ffho  baVTeft nfe and IS'passIng hrinsdlf off  as a single man to a hired girl along  here. I'm looking for .her. She's red  headed aud has ������ mole ou her chiu. If  1 get hold of her I'll give you enough  of that red hair to stuff n sol'y' pillow  with."  "Then���������then you are not crushed  down?"  "I'd like to see the man that could*  crush me!"  "And you are not thinking of suicide?"  "What d'ye take me for, old man?  What's all this jabber about arlywuy?  What is It to you if Jimmie and me  have a bit of a row? I don't like your  talk, and I don't like your looks."  "But you passed my house back  there," replied Mr. Bowser.  "And what if I did? Is there auy  law to forbid me passing your house?"  "But you looked so dejected and forlorn that I told my wife she ought to  have spoken, to you and let you know  that you had her sympathies,"  "If she had I should have thought  her a bigger fool than you are. Now  get along with ye. There are people  looking at us, and I don't want them  to understand that I'd pick up with  the likes of you."  "Woman,   I  felt sorry  for you and  thought"-  "And who "asked you to?'  "But the other day you called at my  house, and my hard hearted wife turned you away without a kind word."  His  Sympathy  Rejected.  "Was that your house?  I was pretty  full,  and I  thought It was the  place  where thc red headed girl lives.    Yes.  the lady told me to-get a hustle on me,  and I'm not blaming her a bit.   You'd  better be trotting along now."  Mr. Bowser trotted. He wanted to  tear pickets off the fences as he passed along. His sympathies had been  wasted and his kindness, rebuffed. He  was wandering along, absorbed in  thoughts of Mrs. Bowser's barbarlan-  ism, when a woman he had been following almost without knowing it turned on him of a sudden and demanded:  "Look here, you old masher, who are  you following and for what?"  "Madam, I am not following you,"  he replied;  "But you have been following me for  five blocks, and I won't have no more  of It.   I'll call thc police."  Mr. Bowser looked at her- more closely and thought he detected grief in her  face and hopelessness In her eyes. He  was about to offer his sympathies and  fatherly interest in case she had made  up her mind to leave the cruel world  behind her when she stepped forward  and brought a closed umbrella down on  his head and then uttered shouts for  assistance. For a few seconds he was  too dazed to realize the situation. Then  she gave hlni a second blow, and he  took to his heels. Boys and men and  dogs pursued him, but they stood no  show. He had come out to sympathize  and had been called hard names. He  had been ready with a fatherly Interest and had been whacked over the  head and his hat'broken.  It was two hours later when he en.  tered his house. Mrs. Bowser waited  for Ave minutes for him to speak, and  as he did uot she inquired:  "Well, did you prevent the crushed  from' committing suicide?"  "Mrs. Bowser," he replied after a  moment, "as I said before leaving the  house this evening, I want to talk with  you���������a long talk."  "Yes, you said so, and now I want to  say that I want a talk with you���������a <  short talk. If your heart has got over  aching for the general public please  lock those back windows and come to  bed." M. QUAD.  HIS   BAD  BREAK.  He Didn't Think  Ho  Was  Talking to  the Woman's Husband.  The conductor looked at the thin  man.  "Do you see that stout woman at the  other end of the car���������the one with the  monkey hat?" he asked.  "I think I see the one you mean,"  the thin man responded.      >  "There, she's looking this way," said  the conductor. "Well, sir, I admire  tflut woman."  "You do?"  "Yes, I do. She may have a squint  mid'.wear bad fitting clothes and big  shoes, yet 1 admire her."  "Why?"  "She knows how to get off a car the  right way, that's why. She's too stout  and her hair is ratty and she hasn't  any taste, but when she steps down  from the back platform I never worry. I know she'll land all right. I'm  dead sure she isn't going to sit down  iu the mud and ask me for my number.  That's why I admire her. Here she  comes now. Watch her when she gets  off."  The stout woman came down the  aisle and briskly descended to the  street. And tho conductor, with his  hand on the bell rope, winked approvingly nt the slim man.  Then the stout woman looked around.  "Come, fieorge!" she called, and tlie  slim man meekly followed her.���������Cleveland Plalu Denier.  THE. VORACIOUS  SEA.  Babu. English.

There is a lad of'nine years in Philadelphia who recently grew most curious with reference to the profession of  a gentleman of pronounced clerical appearance who frequently visited the  boy's father. In answer to the youngster's inquiry in this connection the father replied to thc effect that the good  man was "a saver of souls."  Not long thereafter the lad took a  favorable opportunity to approach the  reverend gentleman himself. "May 1  ask you a questionV" said he.  "Certainly, my little man." replied  the divine. ��������� "I shall be pleased to answer it."  "I only wanted to know." was the  naive query, "how many souls you've  saved up."���������Lippiucott's.  It Is Eating Up -the Coast Between  Nantes and Bordeaux.  During the past eighteen months the1  Bea has been making a persistent attack upon the low lying coast between  Nantes and Bordeaux. At a place  known as the Belle Henriette, between  Tranche nnd Aiguillon-sur-Mer, to the  north of La Rochelle, a bay has .been  formed 1,000 meters wide and 300 meters deep. This result of eighteen  months' erosiou is sufficiently alarm-  lug. ' - ,  The sea .began by sweeping away a  vineyard and part of a farm and'then  pulled down the road which ran parallel to the sen. Another road was constructed a hundred meters ^farther  back, but even this is being threatened,  for the sea is now within twenty meters'of the new road, which may be  obliterated at any moment. Behind  this are 10,000 acres -of marsh land,  which will certainly be covered by the  sea at n very early date unless measures are immediately taken for It's protection.  The woods and forests department  first tried to resist the'attack by consolidating thc shore with 'piles, but this  did not have the slightest effect upon  the irresistible movement of the sea.  Tho points et chnusseso then took thei  matter In hand and made an inclined  wall with 1,200 cubic meters of rock.  Tho sea demolished a part of the wall,  doing damage to the extent of about  ?"5.000, but the remainder of the wall  has so far done good service in keeping  back the invader. It is obvious, however, that this can only bo a temporary  expedient.  'llio state and the department have  decided upon the construction of an  embankment of armored concrete having a length of GOO meters. The armored concrete will form a sort of  covering for the dunes and will therefore constitute an inclined wall with a  foundation at the bottom extending  two meters below the sand. For fear  that the sea will make*n "flan"; attack"  on the concrete the embankment will  have a masonry wall at each end extending backward, but there Is .some  doubt as to whether Hits will prove  efficient If, ..however, the experiment  Is successful the same method of protection will be adopted at the Pointe  de Graves aud other parts where the  reclaimed marsh laud is being continually eroded by the pons.���������Engineer,  On the Links. .

The  extreme   heat   of  summer or the piercing winds of winter  sap  their  strength,   the   kidneys .become diseased or rheumatism sets in.  What is  needed  to    withstand   .this  hardship is rich  red blood���������the pure  blood  that  Dr.  Williams'   Pink Pills  alone can make.    These pills are the  travellers  never-failing  friend.    Con-  corning  them  Mr.   George  Dalpe,  of  St.  Eloi, Que., says:���������"I am a grain  dealer- and am obliged  to make frequent   trips,   sometimes   very   tiring.  I  returned  home  from  one  of these  trips last summer very much fatigued.    I was  overheated  and  tried  to  cool and rest myself by lounging on  the  Verandah till  late  at night.      I  caught cold and the next day I did  not feel at all-well.    I had a headache, pains in my stomach and was  very weak.    I went to  see a doctor  but* he said I would be alright in a  day  or so,  so  I  started  on  another  trip.     I had not gone far    before I  felt very ill and had to return "home  and go to  bed.    I had  chills,  headache, pains in my stomach and kidneys.    The   doctor   came   to  see  me  and he said I  was overworked.   He  treated   me   for   several   months   but  instead  of  improving,   I "continually  grew worse.    I wasted  away  almost  ! to  a skeleton  anil  really  thought  I  i was going to die.    One day my wife  ! returned from the village with a sup-  | ply of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."  She  ! urged me to take  them  as she said  they  had   been  very  highly    recom-  ' mended to her.   I did so and by the  time I had taken four boxes I felt  enough benefit to decide me to continue them and I took about a dozen  boxes.   They fully cured me and today I am able to go about my work  without feeling fatigued." I  Fatigue, on tlie least exertion is a'  sign tliat the blood is poor.

The Commissioners of Prisons, Id  their annual report just issued, are  nble to point to a-gratifying decrease  ���������of serious crime in England and  Wales. Only,.lS9.232 persons ��������� were  received in the local prisons last year,  as compared with 217,32(3 in the year  before, a decrease of 1-J.044. There  has been' a consider.*! ble decline in  the convictions #t drunkenness.- and  tor larceny, but ihe most satisfactory  feature of the report is the evidence  it gives of the decrease of criminality  among the young. Only 724 children  between'the ages of 12 and 16 were  sent to'prison,*- as compared with  1,029 in the previous year; and there  is an astonishing decrease in the number of lads over 1G who fall into evil  courses. The success <)f the Borstal  system,for the treatment of such offenders is conspicuously proved, and  the'report contains' the suggestion  that such treatment should be extended in a special penal reformatory  to all wrongdoers under the age; of  23. In this way youths may be saved  from life-long crime, and the advantages of the plan are so obvious that  it is bound to be brought into opext/-  t.ion  before Inner.

People of all "persuasions," says the  London Chronicle, will regret to hear  that the old Sardinian chapel off Lincoln's Inn Fields is, after all, to be demolished. It had remained stnndiug  when so many surrounding buildings  had been swept awaj* in the making-of  Kingsway that one bad hoped it would  be spared the general fate. Little remains, of the original chapel of 1648,  for in the "no popery" riots of 1789  the fury"of the rabble selected It for  especial Injury, so as to necessitate an  almost entire rebuilding. Just opposite,  in 1725, when he was a journeyman  printer, lodged Benjamin Franklin with  a Roman Catholic widow and her  daughter���������a very uncommon sort of  printer, as his fellow workmen in Great  Wild street thought, for among the fifty or so employed in Mr. Watt's office,  beer drinkers all, Franklin stood out as  the one water drinker���������teetotaler was a  word not known till nearly a century  later.

It is just lioS years today since  Charles! had his head cut oft' with  an axe iu England. J n those days  kings were not as safe and probably not as good as they are at the  present time.  Tn k society women of New York  are becoming more dissipated every  year, and many of them are a disgrace to their sex. This i.s partly  the effect of having too much  money and not/enough to do.  In reply to a correspondent we,  will say that elephants, boilers,  electric hoists, circular saws, boxcars, pea-soup and several other  articles are not allowed to bo sent  through the mails in Canada.  Fiio.m a Siamese newspaper:  " The news of English we tell the  latest. "Writ"in perfectly style and  most earliest. Stall' lias each one  been to college, and write like the  Kippling and the Dickens. Buy  it.    Buy it."   In Toronto the grand jury recommended that newspapers publishing wild-cat mining stock advertisements be held responsible for  the results. The jury is a little  late, as ten years ago the people in  the cent licit lost .millions of dollars through the suggestive stock  ads in the Toronto dailies. These  people blamed British Columbia  for their losses, when they should  have turned upon their own newspapers in whose columns they read  the lying advertisements. The  great losses to Ontario" people during the Rossland boom of a decade  ago was mainly caused by the  newspapers of Toronto danglirg  golden bait before their greedy,  money-mad eyes. They swallowed  the bait and squealed wheu the  hook hurt, and some of them arc  still sobbing. A press that has no  regard for the welfare "of its patrons when there is money in sight-  for. fat ads does not deserve the  the support of '.honest people and  becomes an ally of the stock  thieves who will always, skin a  sucker when he gets in their game.
