By thc time the  hull of the vpssoI was above tho horizon ivfi had acannrilatod fi sullicipnl  quantity to make a lnr^s beacon, \\re  did not set fire to it at onr-o, however,  for tlio reason Hint I hart no desire  to waste my smoke before those on  board the ship would be able so distinguish itf rom the light clouds hovering about tho peaks above. But before  we could dream of leaving the island  there wore two other matters  10 b(  attended  to..Tho first  was to fill up  the mouth of tho cave with stones, for  there was no time to dig a grave, and  so convert It into a rough sepulchre;  (lie second was to cook and eat our  breakfast.  It  was certain  wo should  require all our strength for the undertaking, und to iiltoiupi such a Ions row  on un empty stomach would. I knew,  bo worse than madness. These things  I explained to Miss llayboiirno, who  wlllinglv volunteered   to   officiate   as  cook while I set about the work first  mentioned. In something loss than a  quarter of an hour 1 had rolled several  .largo rooks Into the mouth    of    tho  cave, and upon these hud placed others  until the cntriiiico was effectually barricaded. By the time this work was  completed  it  was necessary  lo  light  the bonfire. This I did, sotting lire to  tho dry grass at the bottom with a  log from the blaze at which Miss May  bourne had just been cooking. In a few  minutes we had a Hare the flames of  which could not have been less than  twenty feet in height.  We ate our breakfast with our eyes  fixed continually upon the advancing  ship. So far she seemed to be heading  directly for the island, but my fear  was that she might change her course  without discovering our beacon, and *  In that case be out of range before we  could attract her attention. Our. meal  finished therefore, I led Miss Maybourne down the hill to tho beach, and  then between us wo pushed the lifeboat into the water. My intention was  to row out a few miles and endeavor  to get into such a position that whatever course the vessel steered she  could not help but see us.  As soon as wo had pushed off from  thc shore I turned the boat's head, and  talcing up the oars, set to work to pull  out to sea. It was not altogether an  easy task, for the boat was a heavy  one and the morning was strangely  warm. The sky overhead was innocent  of cloud, but away to tho west it presented a hazy appearance; the look of  which I did not altogether like. However, I stuck to my work, all the time  keeping my eyes fixed ou the .rapidly  advancing ship. She presented a fine  appearance, and it was evident she  was a vessel of about threo thousand  . tons.' I hoped she. would .turn out_to  belong to our own nationality, though  ���������-.. ������������������irridst. thS-circumstances any other  would prove' equally acceptable. At  present she was distant from us about  six miles, and as she was still heading  directly for the island I began to feel  certain sho had observed our signal.  For this reason I pointed my boat's  head straight for her and continued  to pull with all the strength I possessed. Suddenly Miss Maybourne uttered  a little cry, and seeing her staring in  a new direction I turned in my seat to  discover what had occasioned it.  "Sho is leaving us," cried my companion, in agonized tones, pointing to  the vessel we had been attempting to  intercept. "Look, look, M<\ Wrexford,  she' is leaving us!"  There was no need for her to bid  uie look, I was watching the ship with  all my eyes. Heaven alone knows how  supreme was the agony of that moment. She had gone about, and for  this reason it was plain that those on  board had not seen our signal. Now  unles* I could manage to attract her  attention, it would be most unlikely  that she would see us. In that case we  might die upon the island without a  chance of escape. At any cost we must  intercept her. I accordingly resumed  my seat again and began to pull wildly after her. Fortunately the breeze  was light and the sea smooth, otherwise I should have made no headway  at all. But when all was said and done,  with both wind and tide in my favor  it was but little that I could accomplish. The boat, as I have already said,  was a large and heavy one, and mj  strength was jerhaps a little undermined by all I had gone through in the  last two or threo days. But, knowing  what depended on it, I tolled at thc  oars like a galley slave, while Miss  Maybourne kept her eyes fixed upon  the retreating ship. At the end of an  hour I was obliged to give up the race  ns hopeless. My strength was quite  exhausted, and our hoped-for saviour  was just showing hull down upon the  horizon. Realizing this I dropped my  head on to my hands like the coward  I was and resigned myself to my despair. For the moment I think 1 must  have forgotten that I was a man. I remembered only the fact that a chance  had been given us of escaping from  our prison, and that just as we were  about to grasp it. It was snatched  away again. Our fate seemed too cruel  to be endured by mortal man.  "Courage, friend, courage," said  Miss Maybourne, as she noticed my  condition. "Bitter as our disappointment has been we have not done with  hope yet. Because that vessel did not  chanco to rescue us It does not follow  that another may not do so. Had w<  not better be getting back to the island? It Is no use our remaining hero  now that the ship Is out of sight."  I saw the wisdom contained In her  remark, and accordingly pulled mysell  together and set to work to turn the  boat's head In the direction wo had  come. But when we had gone-about,  my dismay may be Imagined at discovering that a thick fog had obscured  the Island, and was fast bearing down  upon us. Those on board the vessel we  had been chasing must have seen It approaching, and have thought it advisable to give tho Island and Its  treacherous surroundings as wide a  berth as possible.  "Can you see the land at all, Mr.  Wrexford?" asked Miss Maybourne,  who had herself been staring In the  direction In which our bows wero  pointing.  "I must confess I can seo nothing  of It," I answered, "But if we continue  In this direction and keep our ears  open for the sound of the surf, there  can ho no doubt as to our being able  to make xnir way back to the bay."  "How thick tho fog Is," she continued, "and how quickly It has come  UP| It makes mo feel more norvnug  tnan  even   trie  muugnt or tnat snip  forsaking us."  I stared at her in complete surprise.  To think of Miss Maybourne, whom I  had always found so cool and collected  In moments of dange", talking of feeling nervous! I rallied her on the subject as I pulled along, and in a few  moments she had forgotten her fear.'  While I pulled along I tried to figure  out what distance we could be from  the island. When we discovered that  tho vessel had turned her back on us  1 had been rowing for something like  half an hour. At the rate we had been  traveling1 that would have carried us  about a couple of miles from the shore.  After we had noticed tho change in her  course we hitd probably pulled another  four at most. That being so, we should  now be between five and   six   miles  from land���������two hours' hard work in  my present condition. To add to tho  unpleasantness of our   position,   thc  fos' by this time had completely enveloped us, and to enable you to judge  how dense it was I' may say that 1  could only just distinguish my companion silting in the stern of tho boat.  Still,  however,  I  pulled on,  pausing  every now and again to listen for th<  noise of Ihcs urf breaking on tho shore.  Tho silence was iutensc;   the only  sound we could hear was the tinkling  of tho water as it dripped off the ends  of tho oars. There was .something indescribably awful about the utter absence of noise. It was like tho peace  which precedes some great calamity.  It  stretched  tho nerves  to  breaking  pitch. Indeed, once when    I   allowed  myself lo think what our fate would  bo If by any chance we should miss  the Island, I had such a shock as almost deprived  me of my power    of  thinking for some minutes.  For at least an hour and a half I  pulled on, keeping her head as nearly  as possible in the some direction, and  expecting every moment to hear the  roar of the breakers ahead. The fog  still remained as thick as over, and  ouch time I paused hi my work to listen the same dead silence greeted me  as before. Once more I turned lo my  work, and pulled on without stopping  for another quarter of an hour. Still no  sound of the kind we hoped to hoar  came to us. The island scorned as difficult to find in that fog as the proverbial needle in tlie bundle of hay.  The agony of mind I'suffered was  enough to turn a man's brain. If only  the fog would lift and let us have a  glimpse of where we were, it would  havo been a different matter, but no  such luck. It continued as thick as  over, wreathing and circling about us  like the smoke from tho infernal regions. At last I drew in my oars and  arranged them by nr? side. Under the  circumstances it was no use wasting  what remained of my strength bj  useless exertion.  From that time forward���������that is to  say for at least six hours���������we drifted  on and on, tho fog remaining as dense  as when we had first encountered it.  Throughout that time wekept our ears  continually strained for a sound that  might guide us, but always without  success. By this time it must have  been considerably past three in the  afternoon, and for all we knew lo the  contrary we might still be miles and  miles out of our reckoning. All through  this agonizing period, however, Mis9  Maybourne did not once complain,  but bore herself with a quiet bravery  that would have shamed the veriest  coward iuto at least an affectation of  courage. How bitterly I now reproached myself foi- havlng~ie:t" the-island  to pursue that vessel I must leave  you to imagine. But for that suicidal  act of folly we might now be on dry  land, if not perhaps as luxuriously  housed as we should have liked, at  least safer than we were now. Tho  responsibility for that act of madness  rested entirely upon my shoulders,  and the burden of that knowledge was  my continual punishment.  At last I was roused from my bitter  thoughts by my companion exclaiming that she thought the fog was lifting a little In ono particular quarter.  I looked in the direction indicated and  had to admit that the atmosphere certainly seemed to be clearer there than  elsewhere. Still, however, there wai  no noise of breakers to be heard.  * The light in the quarter pointed out  by my companion was destined to ba  the signal for the fog's departure, and  in less than a quarter of an hour, starting from the time of our first observing it, the whole expanse of sea, from  horizon to horizon, stood revealed to  us. We sprang to our feet almost simultaneously, and searched the ocean for  the island. But to our horror it was  not to be seen. We were alone on the  open sea without either water or food,  any real knowledge of where we were,  or without being able to tell from  which quarter we might expect assistance to come. A more dreadful situation could scarcely be imagined, and  when, I considered the sex and weakness of my companion, and reflected  what such a fate would mean for her,  I could have cursed myself for the .stupidity which had brought it all about.  For some moments after we had  made our terrible discovery, neither of  us spoke. Then our -glances met and  we read our terror in each other's  eyes.  "What are we to do? What can wa  do?" cried Miss Maybourne, running  her eyes round thc horizon and then  meeting my gaze again.  I shook my head and tried to think  before I answered her.  "For the moment I am as powerless  as yourself to say," I replied. "Even  if we could fix the direction, goodness  only knows how far we are from the  Island. We may be only distant ten  miles or so, or we may be twenty. It  must be nearly four o'clock by this  time, and in another four hours at  most darkness will bo falling; under  cover of the night we may miss it  again. On the other hand we cannot  exist here without-food or water. Oh,  Miss Maybourne, to what straits have  I brought you through my stupidity. If  we had stayed on the island Instead of  putting off on this fool's .chase you  would be safe now."  "You must not blame yourself, Mr,  Wrexford," she answered. "Indeed you  must not! It is not just, for I was  quite as anxious as yourself to try and  Intercept the vessel. That we did not  succeed Is not our fault, and in any  case I will not let you reproach yourself."  "Alas! I cannot help it," I replied.  "And your generosity only makes ind  do so the more."  "In that case I shall coasc to be  generous," sho said. We will see how  that plan works. Come, come, my  friend, let us look our situation In the  faco and see what Is best to be done.  Believe me, I have no fear. God will  protect us in the future as Ho has  done in the past."  I looked at the noble girl as she said  this, and took heart from the smile  upon her face. If she could bo so brave  surely I, who called myself a man,  must not prove myself a coward. I  pulled myself together and prepared  to discuss the question as sho desired.  Built was the knowledge of our utter  helplessness that discounted every  hopo. We had no food, wo had no water. True, wo might pull on; but if wo  dill. In whl"h 'Hfpctlnn should wa ������ro-  ceuur io go oast would De to nna ourselves, if we Jived so long���������the chances against which were a thousand to  one���������on the most unhealthy part of  the long coast line of Africa. To pull  wast would, only be to get further out  into mid-ocean, where, if we were not  picked up within forty-eight hours, assistance would no longer be of any  use to us. The Canary Islands, I knew,  lay somewhere, say a hundred miles,  to the southward, but we could not  pull that distvv?e without food or water, and even if we had a favorable  breeze, wo had no sail to take advantage of it. To make matters worse,  tho fishing line and hook I had manufactured for myself out of my scarf-  pin, had boon left on tho island. Surely  any man or woman might be excused  for feeling melancholy under the pressure of such overwhelming misfortunes. '  While we .wore thus considering our  position the sun was sinking lower and  lower to his rest, and would soon be  below the horizon altogether. The  sea was still as calm as a mill-pond,  not a breath of air disturbed its placid  surface. We sal just as we had done  all day: Miss Maybourne in tho stern,\  myself amidships. The oars lay on  either side of me, useless as the rudder, the yoke lines had scarcely been  touched since the ship had turned her  back on us. When I look back on that  awful time now, every detail of the  bout, from tho rowlocks to thc grating  on tho bottom, seems Impressed on  my memory with a faithfulness that  Is almost a pain, I can see Miss Maybourno silting motionless in tho stern,-  her elbows on her knees und her faco  buried In her hands.  At last to rouse her and take her out  of herself, I bogan to talk, What I said  I cannot recollect, nor can I even recall the subjoct of my conversation,  I know, however, that I continued to  talk and insisted upon her answering  me. Tn- this way we passed the time  until darkness fell and the stars came  out. .For tho past hour I had beet,  sufforirug agonies of thirst, and I knew,  Instinctively, that my companion must  be doing the same. I followed her example and dabbled my hands in.thi  water alongside. The coolness, however, while proving infinitely refreshing to my parched skin, only helped to  intensify my desire for something to  drink. I searched the heavens in thc.  hope of discovering a cloud that might  bring us rain, but without success.  "Co-irage," said Miss Maybourno  again, as she noticed mo drop my  head on to my hands in my despair.  "As I said just now, we are in God's  hands; and I feel certain wo shall be  saved at last." .  As if in mockery of her faith I noticed that her voice had lost its usually clear ring, and that it was lower  than I had ever hitherto heard It. But  there was a note of conviction in it  that showed mo how firm her belief  was. For my own part I must confess  that I had long since given up all  hope. In the face of so many calamitous circumsanccs it seemed impossible that wo could be saved. My obvious duty there was to endeavor by  every means in my power to make  death as easy as possible for the  woman I loved.  Iu the same tedious fashion hour  after hour went by and still we remained as we were, floating idly upon the  bosom of the deep. Twice I tried to  persuade Miss Maybourne to lie down  at the bottom of the boat and attemp'  to obtain some sleep, but she would  'not"Iieaf'"or'"Sucn-a-Uilngr*For "mysell'  I could not have closed my eyes for  five minutes, even if by doing so I  could have saved my life. Every faculty was strained to breaking pitch, and  I was con!inually watching and listening for something, though what I expected to see or hear I could not have  told if I had been asked. I pray to God  that I may never again be called upon  to spend such another absolutely despairing night.  (To  bo  continued.)

A great campaign, backed by the  weight of every religious denomination, is to be waged in London, Eng.,  on behalf of public morality.  There were assembled recently upon the platform of the Queen's Hall,  united in support of the crusade, the  Bishops of London and Southwark.  representing the Established Church;  Rev. Scott Lidgett, representing Nonconformity; Mr. Percy Harris, the  chairman of the London County Council, who presided arid, represented the  governing body of London; and. the  mayors of nine London boroughs. The  Archbishop of Westminster, voicing  the forces of Roman Catholicism, sent  a most sympathetically worded message; so, too, did the Archbishop of  Canterbury and the Chief Rabbi, Dr.  Adler.  Organizing this important movement  is the London Council for the Promotion of Public Morality, which was so  active recently in its protest against  "living statuary" in the music-halls,  and which had in that work���������as it  has in its present undertaking���������the  earnest support of the Bishoti' of  London.  "Religious London intends to speak  with one voice," declared the Bishop  of London in an eloquent speech, "and  thus speaking, will, I believe, bo omnipotent." Tho bishop then outlined  the five objects of the approaching  campaign.   They arc as follows:  1. The strong discouragement of all  degrading spectacles and exhibitions.  2. The removal from all shop windows of undisguised incentives to vice.  3. The suppression of those cheap  illustrated papers which contain pictures of a directly suggestive character.  i. Tho abolition of questionable  houses.  5. The elevation of public opinion  until what is condemned in woman is  no longer condoned in man.  "By such drastic reforms as these."  said the bishop, "and by them only,  can we hope to make London a decent city; and if the law fails to help  us, the bishop of Southwark and myself feel confident that we should  carry with us the great weight of public opinion wore we to bring a suitable  bill before thc House of Lords. Certainly we should, in such a project,  obtain the noiinigoous support of the  Labor members of the House of Commons."  Preachers' Opinions  Rev. P. K. McRae, Forks Baddeck,  C.1B.: "I always count it a pleasure to  recommend the Dr. Slocum Remedies  to my parishioners. I believe there  is nothing better for throat and lung  troubles or weakness or run-down system. "For speaker's sore throat I have  found  Psychine very beneficial."  Rev. W. H. Stevens, Paisley, Ont.:  "Psychine seemed just the stimulant  my system needed. I shall add my  testimony as lo its efficacy at every  opportunity."  Rev. R. M. Browne, Amherst Head  N.S.:. "I have .often, recommended  Psychin'e since taking "it myself,' for  it a cure for tJie trouble you specify."  Rev., Chas. Stirling. Bath, N.B.: "I  have used Psychine in my family;  the results were marvelous. I have  visited people who state that they  never used its equal. I strongly recommend it."  Rev. J. S. I. Wilson, Markdale, Ont.:  "I have taken two bottles of Psychine  and am pleased to say thai I am  greatly improved in health. I was  troubled with my throat, but now I  find it about restored to its normal  condition. I find my work very much  less taxing. I believe Psychine is all  claimed for it."  These are ��������� earnest preachers of the  gospel of Psychine. They know whereof they speak. Psychine cures all  throat, lung and stomach troubles. It  is a great voice strengthener, acting  directly on the vocal, respiratory and  digestive organs, thus specially adapted to public speakers. At all  druggists, 50c and $1.00, or Dr. T.

Historic   Inn   Deliberately   Fired   to  Provide   Cinematograph   Pictures.  1 Ye Olde Red Lion at Hampton-on-  Thames, England, was recently burnt  to furnish a fireman's holiday. _ Despite a history going back to Cardinal  Wolsey and a guest-list including  Pope, Dryden, Swift, Colley, Cibber,  Peg Woffington, and Kitty Clive, the  place had been doomed- to make way  for a modern hotel.  Its internal fittings had been removed, and to Capt. Graham, the captain of the local fire brigade, came  the idea of making the shell serve a  useful purpose���������to give good practice  to his men and to help the orphan  fund of the National Fire Brigade  Union by affording to cinomatograph-  ers and photographers the opportunity of taking realistic pictures and  contributing to the fund from their  profits.  The window frames, accordingly,  wore wreathed with cotton wool  soaked in paraffin, and oil and inflammable materials wore scattered  about the interior.   '  When the cinematograph was in  position tho fire broke out in the  lower part of the house and spread  rapidly. -   -'  i The alarm was given, and tho  Hampton Fire Brigade and the brigade of the Metropolitan Water Board  from tho neighboring reservoirs rushed to the inn with three steamers and  several lire esctipes. The. place by  then was enveloped in flames, and  floods of water were soon playing upon it,  A number of people wero able to  make their escape from ' the taproom by the front entrance, but presently several persons, including two  women whose escape appeared to be  cut off, were seen at thc upper windows calling for help. They-were  brought safely through thc flames and  smoke to the ground by moans of the  escape.

Two anecdotes of King Edward,  ���������a hieh go to show that His Majesty is  a strict constitutionalist in his own  country, but is less strict when another country is concerned, are given  by the Wiener Allgemeine Zeitung on  high authority:  The first is that some years ago,  it-hen Mr. Chamberlain was at the  Colonial Office, the King asked him to  send him some papers relating to a  colonial question m which His Majesty took a special interest: Mr.  Chamberlain is said to have refused,  declaring if His Majesty had no confidence in his Minister he might dismiss him, but that as long as the  Nfmister enjoyed the confidence of the  King and Parliament it was inconsistent with the constitution for anybody  t") interfere with details of administration. AENer a moment's reconsideration the King replied, "You are  perfectly  right."  ��������� The second story would show that  it u owing to King Edward's influ  once that Norway, after the separa  tion, did nut become a republic  Bjoernstjerne Bjoernson, the great  writ.'.r and Radical politician, who  play.id a most influential part in that  event, was convinced, it is said, by  m t.utograph letter from King Edward that a monarchy would be a  great advantage to Norway, particularly if King Haakon, whose wife is  an English' princess, should ascend  the Uirone.  King Edward is represented to have  pointed out that England was ready to  secure for Norway, after her separation from Sweden, the same international position as was secured foi  Sweden and Norway by the treaty ol  1855, by which England ana France  had guaranteed Hie territorial independence of ihe two countries.- The  King, it is said, added that he could  ���������nuch more easily attain tnis if Nor-  vay, in? Lead of declaring a republic,  :lectcd Haakon King. His Majesty a  ���������irguments had .so convincing an effect  m Bjoernson Miat he dropped the  idea of a republic. Thus, the Allgemeine Zeitung concludes, it is owing  to a letter of King Edward -tHat 5iw-  ivay is not a republic.  Hecreased Drunkenr.. ss.

During the year l'Jttt  1,713 licenses ceased to be operative,  the persons holding them, and those  owning the leases or freeholds of the  license-value, being compensated. The  average amount paid for extinction  of licenses appears to havo been less  than ������1,000, which would have been  greatly increased if the claims of those  dispossessed had been fully satisfied.  The total would also have been greater  if the local authorities hud claimed  for licenses voluntarily surrendered  by them, in the interest of thc community, as they will be ablo to under  Mr. Asquith's new bill if it becomes  law as it stands. It has been said  that the attack has been mr.de chiefly  upon liconse-holders with small moans  and therefore likely to suffer tho  greatest hardship. But the fact that  the compensation paid varies in individual cases from ������'230 to nearly  ������3,000 seems to dispose of that allegation.

I regard it as- one of the best tonics now on the  market."  TORONTO is one of tne most beautiful cities in the world.' It is  a city of homes and churches, a city of intelligence and good government, a city of healthful climate and beautiful scenery.  Among the many beautiful homes which make up the city of Toronto,  is the home of J. E. Carson, 218 St. Clarens Ave. In this home Peruna  is revered as a family medicine.  Peruna can boast of being a fixture in over a million such happy  homes on this continent, where it is used for the petty ailments that  afflict the family.  Coughs and colds, catarrh of the head and throat, sore throat in various forms, disturbances of digestion, catarrh of the stomach, and  other internal organs. These ailments, petty in themselves, are often  the beginning  of very serious diseases.  A dose or two of Peruna taken in the beginning may quickly avert  tedious   if  not  fatal  illnesses.  Head Stopped  Up.  Mr. G. W. Martin, Hartford, Ontario, choir leader at St. Paul's Episcopal  Church,  writes:  "I have been troubled with catarrh  for a great many years, and always  trying something for it, but was able  only to secure temporary reliej until  I used Peruna. Only five bottles rid  my system of all traces of catarrh,  and I have hot noticed the slightest  trouble for several months. My head  was stopped up, my breath offensive,  and it is a relief to be able to breathe  freely once more."  Lungs  and  Bronchial Tubes.  Mr.  J.  C.  Hervus Pelletier,   Dept.  de 1'Agriculture, Ottawa. Ont., writes:  "The   Peruna   is-  particularly   effica-.  cious in  the cure of catarrhal  affections of the lungs and bronchial tubes.  "Six bottles cured mo this winter  of bronchitis. .1 am' completely restored and I owe thanks to the Peruna. f  "I have recommended this remedy  to a large number of my friends afflicted with the same trouble, and  they. have verified my good opinion  of this valuable remedy."

The protection of a  forest from fire is one of the best possible illustrations of the old saying;  tor often a few minutes spent in thoroughly extinguishing camp-fire or  a quarter of an hour passed in putting out an incipient blaze may mean,  and often has meant, tho saving of  many thousands of dollars worth of  timber. This is the main idea of the  patrol system carried on in Ontario  and Quebec forests for years past;  what is aimed at is to discover the  fire in its early stages and put it out  then, before it has a chance to reach  large .proportions.  Small torest fires do a tremendous  amount of damage which is not realized. Such fires, burning in the dead  leaves and other litter of the forest  ("surface" flies) or consuming the soil  itself ("ground" fires) .wound the roots  and bases of the trees and these  wounds give an entrance to fungi and  insects.  . In places in tho Riding Mountain  forest reserve in Manitoba.it is found  that, among the poplar trees, three out  of every four are affected with rot in  the "butt" log���������i.e.,the log nearest  the stump���������a condition which is due  to the fact just mentioned, as the reserve has been repeatedly burned over  in years past.  Most to be feared, of course, are  the fires which consume the entire  forest, the "crown" fires. Evidence  of many of these can be seen in mile  after mile of the wooded districts of  Canada, where charred black trunks  are all that is left of what was once  a thick, green forest. - Occasionally  even more serious disasters occur, as  in the well known Miramichi, N.B.,  fire of October, 1825, where 160 lives  were lost and a quarter of a million  pounds sterling were lost in property consumed.

Though I have'never been sick myself, and have not hud occasion to use  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I thought  you ought to know of the remarkable  cure they have wrought in Mr. Old-  ing's  case.  During a visit to my homo in Mcri-  gouiish, '.S., some years ago, 1 was  grieved to find our next door neighbor and frir :d, Michael Olding, very  low. "He is not expected to live,"  my mother informed me, "And you  must go over and seo him a3 he is  liable to pass away at any moment."  "Not expected to live," that was the  opinion not only of the doctor who  attended him, but of his wife and  family as well. Upon visiting him  myself I found abundant evidence to  confirm their opinion.  Mr. Olding had for years been nf-  flicted with asthma and bronchitis,  but now a complication of diseases  was  ravishing his system.    Ho had  had ever seen him, for, as 1 said, he  had always been ailing. In sheer desperation lie had asked his wife to get  him Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. They  soon began to help him*. His appetite  and strength began to improve, and  lo the astonishment of his family and  friends he rapidly regained his health.  Now, though the burden of well nigh  four score years is upon him, he is  ablo to do a fair day's work, and is  in the enjoyment of good health,  oven the asthma has censed to trouble him as in former years.  Mr. Olding himself, as well as his  neighbors and the writer of this letter,  confidently believe that his rescue  from the very jaws of death���������seemingly so miraculous���������is due under tho  blessing of God to the timely and  continuous use of Dr. Williams' Pink-  Pills.  REV. EDWIN SMITH, M.A.  Mr. Olding himself writes: "I am  glad Rev.

' ^  Prof.  Bolley. of the Noith Dakota  Government Agrcuituial Stauon, after a prolonged soiics ot experiments  came to the conclusion that the flax  ^ crop as such is not moie exhausting  "to land'than    other oidinaiy    faini  crops.    "Indeed," says  Pi oh  Bolley,  "it  has   boon  shown   by   the  experiments of our chemist and agriculturist  and  by  my  own   biological' ex-  ��������� periments that'the flax plant is less  radical-in its draft upon the soil than  wheat, corn or oats."  It is almost universally recognizee!  by farmers of the .North-Western  States that flaxseed is the most profitable crop for new lands and it has  become the common practice to sow  it on first breaking, but Prof. Bolley  is of the opinion ttiat it may also be  . very profitably grown on old lands  ���������if a proper rotation is observed. He  points out that the - summer season  in tho North-West is very short and  that consequently it. is very desirable  that the "farmers should have "as many  different crops as "possible that will  mature in a short season. Maxseed  is pre-eminently a short-season crop,  maturing more quickly than wheat,  oats or barley and the' experiments  'carried on by tho North Dakota Government agricultural station , prove  that it may bo made a permanent  source of income to North-West farmers if they will grow it in rotation  with other crops.

A large slice of territory is to be  added to the British Empire without  a shot being fired. Negotiations are  now pending between Great Britain  and Siam which have, says Router,  been in progress at Bangkok for sonje  time. When they are completed, the  cession of territory referred to ,wili  take effect. The negotiations referred  to were initiated by Siam, which'desired a modification of British extraterritorial rights. In return," Siam is  prepared to cedo the two outlying  Btates of Kelantan and Tringano,  which arc adjucont to the British  Malay States, and in which there are  important British interests. The States  of Kelantan and Tringano are twe  tributory provinces of Slam, the former being administered by a Siamese  Commissioner, assisted by an English  adviser appointed by tho Bangkok  Government. It is natural that both  these provinces should be under British control, n's they are- contiguous  to the British Malay States, and are  determined as within tho British  sphere of influence by the Franco-  Siamese Treaty of 1906. The two  states referred to cover an area of  between 8,000 nnd 0,000 square miles.  As regards- Kelantan, there are valuable British interests. The Duff Development Company owns a concession of some 2,500 square miles of the  country, obtained from the Rajah of  Kelantan, supported by the British  Government and ratified in 1902 by  the Siamese Government, in which  year the Rajah of Kelantan acknowledged Siamese suzerainty. Subsequent to this, however, differences  arose between the-Government and.  the Company regarding. the exereiseX  by the latter of -legislative and administrative rights (which were the  subject of negotiation through the  British Foreign Office until quite recently.) The country itself is little  known, but is believed to be ns well  endowed" by nature as the prosperous  Malay Federated States. It is believed to bo rich.in gold and tin, and  rubber growing'has met with success.  The Rajtih of Kelantan, it is stated,  would welcome British control. The  State of Tringano.is practicully untrodden ground for the European.  There are no roads, and the principal river, the Tringano, is rendered  useless for navigation half-way on its  course to the sea by- a series of large  waterfalls. The country to the west  of these falls is practically uninhabited. Tin is, however, known to exist  in the south. The political rftntus of  tlio country is to some' extent indefinite. It is held by some that the  Rajah of Tringano is an independent  ruler, but the Siamese Government  claims that Article 12 of the Angioma mese suzerainty of 1S26 impljes  Siamese suzerainty over the country.  The extra-territoiial rights of Great  Britain in Siam which form the basis  of the negotiations are those of consular jurisdiction conferred upon  Great Britain by the treaty of 1856.  These are, and always have been, a  source of vexation and annoyance to  tlie Siamese Government.  ���������"���������4*0  ENDS LIFE IN EXILE.  GIRL NEARLY LYNCHED.

Catherine Rooks, twenty-three years  old, was recently returned ' to her  parents' home nt Pittsburg by the  authorities of Lawrence county after  a most exciting experience. Miss  Rooks, while in man's attire, was  chased by a sheriff's posse in Lawrence county which was in search of  a negro who had fatally stabbed his  wife. In the darkness the girl was  mistaken for the much-wanted negro  and she narrowly escaped lynching.  Her voice saved her as she was about  to be hoisted on a rope by tin mob.  The girl, whose family is poor, has  a brother sick in Chicago, and a few  days since she got the idea that she  might beat her way on freight trains  to Chicago to "help him had she but  boy's attire. Being of large frame,  she secretly tried on the clothing of  her uncle, nnd finding it fitted well  she left a note in the house and started for Chicago. Soon she had gotten  as far as Newcastle. In the dusk  around the railway station, she was  noticed by one who had been out  with the sheriff all day looking for  Robert Washington, whose wife is  dying from knife wounds inflicted  by him. Tlie word soon passed that  there was a "strange nigger man"  about, and the posse was soon in  full cry after Catherine, who, unham-  nerod by skirts, fled like the wind.  At the end of a mile she was brought  *o earth, exhausted and frightened  almost to death, but she mnnngnd .to.  scream a few times so lustily that thc  posse found it had no man to denl  with. Miss Rooks was taken to  Youngstown. Ohio, for the night and  then taken back to Pittsburg.  Terrorist  Chief  Made   Men Ass&ssln*  by   Hypnotic  Spell.  Gershuni, the ex-sktJjnt, pioneer  and ruling spirit of the'present revolutionary Terrorist movement in Russia, is reported by the newspapers to  have died in exile but a free man.  He escaped from a life sentence in  the East Siberian political penal settlement two years ago by getting some  fellow-prisoners to conceal him in a  coal barrel which, with a load of others, was to be taken further north.  The driver was bribed and "lost" the  barrel, its occupant escaping aftur  many perils to Japan, and then to  America".  Among his young comrades ho w-is  credited with strong, powers of hypnotism, by which he'became thc real  pivot of their movement. Most "f  Ihe attempts against heads of tho  Russian Government in recent years  were of his devising., Tt was his instruments who assassinated .Prince  Obolensky and " M. de Plchve, nnd  since his escape he organized some of.  tho chief attempts of recent montliB.  , He never took personal part in the  actual deed.i, but by choosing men  among, his desperate comrades, fascinating and frightening them, he directed the most daring coups. .  '^Once, his friends admit, he was foiled completely. He had instigated an  attempt on the life of the late M.  Pobiedbnosizeff, procurator, of the.  Holy Synod, which was to be carried  out at the funeral of M. Lipiaguine,  the Minister of the Interior, whose  execution he hnd decreed. For assas-.  sin he had chosen a young subaltern  of radical leanings. After four "seances" with Gershuni the officer promised to kill the procurator.,  On the morning fixed for the deed  the chief went to his agent's room  and found him terrified from'remote,  swearing that he could not commit  murder. Gurshuni upbraided and  derided him, finally giving him a bottle of strong wine and telling him to  do as he was bid. The officer went  out obediently with his revolver and  poisoned bullets rnd took his position  on the line of the funeral procession.  As M. Tobiedonostzeff approached  on foot the eyes of the two men met,  nnd the would-be assassin, who had  cowered under the eye of Gershuni,  felt himself even more helpless a3  the aged procurator's cold, grey, masterful eyes did not release their hold  from him. It was (is if th'ey met and  fought in a life-and-death combat and  \he Terrorist was vanquished. He  broke down, turned and fled. They  found him in his lodgings in an hysterical state, exhausted with throwing off the. spell of Gershuni.   '_'   _   ,  Going Him One Better.

Russian police methods have once  more moved the British Foreign Office  to action. This time the case is more  flagrant than usual, a London merchant having been summarily arrested and cast into prison in Odessa.  The unfortunate individual it Mr.  N. Luxemburg, who carries on business in Cheapside, and is well known  among London and Continental business mnn. On Feb. 2G he left England foi a continental tour. He* visit-  id Berlin, from which he sent a pic-  lure post-card���������the last direct communication any of his friends have  had from him���������to his wife, and after-  Wards went to Odessa, where he arrived on March 5.  Later came the following cable from  his agent at Odessa: ���������  "Luxemburg arrested; am taking necessary steps."  Later a letter was received from the  agent stuting that Mr. Luxemburg  was suddenly dragged out of bed at  his hotel nnd clapped straightway in  prison, without any explanation beyond "Ordors from St. Petersburg."  The agent wrote that he had been  unable to ascertain why the arrest  had taken place; that no charge had  at present been made; that he had  not been allowed to communicate  with Mr. Luxemburg, and that Mr.  Luxemburg had not been allowed to  communicate with him.  According to one correspondent Mr.  Luxemburg was awakened at two in  the morning. When he opened the  door of his room an officer and five  constables presented revolvers at him.  He was removed to the prison, and  placed in a filthy cell which had no  ted. As a result he had a nervous  breakdown.  It has been suggested that revolutionary pamphlets were found  amongst Mr. Luxemburg's baggage,  but it is asserted by those who should  know that Mr. Luxemburg kept himself aloof from politics. The package  which Mr. Luxemburg took with him  contained sample boots and shoes.  Mrs Luxemburg has made personal  representations to the Foreign Office,  which has promised to make inquiries  at once.  The British Government has taken  energetic action. At the instance of  the Foreign Office the British Ambassador at St. Petersburg has presented  a nofri to the Russian Foreign Minister, calling attention to the arrest,  and requesting that if there is any  charge against Mr. Luxemburg his  trial might be expedited, and, if not,  that he should be released.  The matter, we understand, will be  further pressed, and, if, as seems to  be the case, a serious blunder has  been made by the Odessa police, the  British Government will consider the  question of making a claim for com-  "pensation.  In addition to the representations  which have been made at St. Petersburg, the British consul-general at  Odessa has been instructed to inquire  fully into the circumstances of Mr.  Luxemburg's arrest, and to report as  soon as possible.  PUSSY IfJ THE WALL.  Cat Alive "After Being Bricked up for  a Month.      _    _  From Sunderland comes a remark-  able'story concerning a cat which had  been accidentally imprisoned in a wall  during alterations. Some weeks ago,  Mr. John Stephenson missed from his  home in Chntsworth street, a Persian  cat, and as the animal did not put  in an appearance after the lapse of  some days, it was concluded that it  had been stolen. A few days ago a  member of the family heard mewing,  but the cat was not to be seen. The  mewing was not heard again that day,  but on the following day was repeated, and seemed to come from beneath  the flooring. Boards wore taken up,  but the cat was not found. On the  same day the cries of the animal were  again heard, and this time seemed  to come from behind the wall of the  sitting-room. It being obvious that  the cat was in some place of confinement about the house, Mr. Stephenson obtained help, and had the wainscoting detached and bricks removed.  While these operations were in progress, the poor beast was- discovered  by one of the mon. The cat had been  a month in the ventilating chamber  while alterations were being made  to the place, and was bricked in.  When found the animal was in a pitiful condition, but with careful treatment it is now gradually getting over  its terrible experience.  Rabbits Eat Up the Farms.  Some idea of the expenditure and  efforts made by the farmers in Queensland to mitigate the rabbit pest may  be gathered from the fact that in the  colony 10,152 miles of close netted  fencing have been erected, the maintenance of which involves an outlay  of $700,000 per annum, including the  interest on the capital expended for  fencing, which represents approximately $-1,000,000.  To keep this mileage in repair alone  costs $-100,000 per annum. Despite  these precautions but little headway  can be made against the multiplication  and  ravages of the pest.  This condition of affairs is staled to  be mainly the fault of the Government, which takes no steps to arrest  the fecundity of thc animals upon the  vacant state land.  Had to Fight Wolves.  A despatch from Cheyenne, Wyo.,  soys: Attacked by a large pack of timber wolvos, the drivers of the ftalian  car Zust. in tlie New York to Puris  automobile race, were forced to use  rifles und pistols near Spring Valley,  to drive tho ..hungry animals away.  The car was creeping 'along over a  muddy road, when the cry of the  wolves was heard. behind them, and  thc animals, growing bolder each minute, surrounded the car. They wore  not frightened by the tooting horn  of the machine, nor did they fear  the lights that were flashed on thorn.  They snapped at the rubber tires and  mudguard, and then the revolvers  were brought into use. Cowboys afterwards picked up pelts of twenty  wolvos slain by the Italians.    -.

You can surmount every othei  faulty habit, but the man who is a  confirmed drinker has not.one chanci-  in a million of success in life," said  Andrew Carnegie recently in address  ing the evening classes of Pratt In  stitute, Brooklyn, at their commence  ment exercises.  "I want to say that the next generation will regards-smoking as this oni  regards chewing���������no, I will not say  the next generation, the generation after that, perhaps.  "Do not be content with merely doing your duty. Always do a little  more, and the wise employer will soon-  ���������er or later promote you. If your employer is not wise, keep looking  around. Some employers have the reputation of promoting their men and  making millionaires of them. That's  the kind of an employer you want to  Iind.  "Another thing, the man that doesn't know a little more about the work  he is assigned to than his employer  knows is a poor stick.  "It is well to make your employe!  know you know more than he does, if  you don't just exactly say it."  Mr. Carnegie, aiter relating a stori"  of the winning for a bride an employer's daughter by one of his bright  young men, exclaimed:  "That was a model employer. How  much better for the daughter to marry  a young American or Briton that had  risen by his own merit than to throw  herself away on a worthless duke!"  Bank  Deposit Left For 80 Years.  In one case the payment of a sum  deposited in a trustee savings bank  in 182G was not claimed by the person in which name it was deposited  until February of last year. By that  time it had accumulated to ten times  the amount of the original sum, solely  by the addition of compound interest.  The Inspection Committee of Trustee Savings Banks in their annual re  port recently issued point out that  .such deposits aro almost at the mercy  of any fraudulently disposed oflicei  with knowledge of the facts, especially if he has possession of the genuine  pass book, and they had long advocated the adoption of a rule requiring  such accounts to be earmarked by  transfer to a separate ledger aftc-r  sevon or ten years, during which no  transactions have taken placo.  Last November there were 222 banks  open. The number of depositors in  the general departments was 1,779,000,  and in special investment departments  50,450. In both departments the  amount of deposits was in cash ������59,-  114,300, and in stock ������2,583,G00.

One of the reasons why foreigners are preferred on public and  other works to English, Scotch,  Irish, Americans and Canadians,  was given by Crown Attorney Cor-  ley in the Toronto police court a  short time ago. William Plewes,  foreman for Kelly & Co., contractors, was charged with fraud  in having accepted from a number  of "Italians a dollar each to give  them work, and then having discharged thorn after ��������� they had  worked for a short time. Crown  Attorney Corley said all foreigners  were in the habit of paying the  foreman- to obtain their jobs.  British subjects would not do this,  so that foreigners secured the  preference.  The sidewalks in the city are in  need of repairs.  During the Hardy  administration,   some   nine years  ago,   new    sidewalks    were   put  down and the streets graded. Since  then little hut patchwork has been  done, and a few  sidewalks  built  to accommodate friends of the administration.      During   the  term  of   Mayor Nation  he   was   never  tired of telling  the  public of how  economical   he   had    been.     His  economy   was   due   to the   large  amount of back  taxes paid during  his administration, and the perfect  condition of the  streets and  sidewalks   when he took office, which  necessitated   only   small  expenditures.    Tho sidewalks on Copper,  Silver' and  Gold  streets are in a  very   bad   state   and    new    ones  should be put down at  once if the  city wishes to avoid  damage suits.  This and next year's  councils will  he compelled to make large appropriations for  streets and sidewalks, and may  expect  unscrupulous  municipal politicians in the  future to take credit for the results  of   the   large   expenditures    now  necessary in the city.

We know  a man in New Denver who kept  his henhouse warm all winter with  them.  It was generally supposed that  the business men of Greenwood  were, sleeping, but their subscriptions to the Dominion Day celebration prove that they are very  much awake.  Wio frequently receivo books  from Ottawa telling us how to  raise flax, wheat, alfalfa, etc. We  would prefer some literature telling us how to raise the wind when  a dead calm  of finance.  journal and mothers' guide is absent from the bosom of his family  aii'l his regular occupation, the  following from Walker's Weekly  will not perhaps be uninteresting  to Slocan readers':  "When we were weathering the  storms of silvery-lined financial  clouds together, over in silvery  Slocan, some eight years ago. our  pressman went off and got married. Colonel Lowery is not particularly averse to marriage, although I've never known' him to  commit matrimony, except in his  writings .Well,���������. _the  . pressman  came home, and brought "with him  his pretty  bride.    She  was  innocent, chaste, innoxious and hard of  henring.""She was both train-sick  and   sea-sick   en  route,  and   felt  many times that  she  would  die.  And for days after reaching New  Denver   she could scarcely   raise  her   head.     Things   were getting  serious, for we had a big paper to  get out and the pressman away  nursing a sick  wife.    The colonel  was seated in his red-decked arm  chair,   one  sultry summer's  day,  awaiting the coming of the divine  a Hiatus.    Instead, there walked in  the pressman's wife.    The pressman wasn't in, so Colonel Lowery  had to do the honors.    Naturally  the girl had to tell him how sick  she was and where she was most  sick.    It was an awful case(of cerebral,  cerebellum  cerebritis plunk,  and Dr. Lowery knew it.    He remembered all the remedies his dear  old   mother had  used upon   him  when a boy, and he advised her as  would a mother her daughter. She  had tried thein all and  still nothing would stay.    That she would  die she felt certain���������she was slowly  starving to death.    She had no appetite and couldn't look a beefsteak in the face without a squeamish feeling.    The colonel was confident that this was a case where  sober thought was necessary. 'Fear  not,' said he ; 'I have often had  the same thing.    Eat onions ; eat  lots of them.    They will cure you  as they have cured me'."  Fishing tackle. Kods, Heels,  Lines, Flies, etc. You can save  money by buying at McEae Bros.

The Week of 'Victoria a short"  time ago published a joke of rather  a questionable nature, and in its  last issue tbe editor apologized for  the joke. It is a question whether  tho apology was not worse taste  than the joke. Tbe averago Englishman should not play with  American jokes off hand. He is  mentally unfitted to appreciate  them without serious consideration. What to the editor of the  Week, on first thought, seemed  a Jiarmless joke, finally filtered  through his brain and came out a  vulgar Americanism.
