When I reached England, the ley  hand of winter was upon tho land. The  streets were banked feet high with  snow, and tho Thames at London  Bridge was nothing but a mass of  floating ice upon which au active man  could have passed from shore to shore.  Poor homeless wi etches were to be  seen sheltering themselves in every  nook and cranny, and tho morning  papers teemed with gruesome odescriptions ot dead bodies found *in  drifts, of dapiage douo to property,  and of trains delayed and snowed up  in every conceivable part of tho country. Such a winter had not been experienced for years, and when T arrived and reali/.ed what it meant for  myself, I could not but comment on  my madness in having left an Australian summer to participate in such a  direful state of things.  Immediately on arrival I made my  ���������way to Blanket ton's Hotel, otf the  Strand, and installed myself there. It  was a nice, quiet place, and suited me  admirably. The voyage home from Australia had done nic a world of good���������  that Is to say as far as my bodily  health was concerned���������but it was  doubtful whether it had relieved my  brain of any of the pressure recent  events in Austialia had placed upon  it. Thougii nearly three months had  elapsed since my terrible disappointment in the Boolga Ranges, I had not  been able to reconcile myself to it;  and as the monotonous existence on  board ship allowed me more leisure,  It probably Induced me to brood upon  it more than I should otherwise have  done. At any rate, my first taught on  reaching London was that I \ -.in the  same City with my enemy, and my  second to wonder how I could best get  even with him. All day and all night  this idea held possession of my braitt  * I could think of nothing but my hatred  of the man, and as often as I saw his  name mentioned in the columns of the  Press, the more vehement my desire  to punish him became. Looking buck  on it now it seems to mo that I could  not have been quite right hi my head  at that time, though to al ntents and  purposes I was as rational & being as  ever stepped in shoe leather. In pi oof  of what I mean, I can remember,  times out of number, talking sensibly  and calmly enough in tho smokies  room, and then going upstairs to ray  bedroom and leaning; out of my window, from which a glimpse of the  Strand was obtainable, to watch th*  constant stream of passers by and to  ���������wonder If Bartrand were among the  number. I would imagine myself meeting him and enticing him into true ot  those dark passages leading from ti.e  gas-lit thoroughfare, and then, wten I  had revealed my identity, drawing a  knife from my sleeve and stabbing  him to his treacherous heart. On  another occasion I spent hours cor-  cocting a most ingenious plan for luring him on to the Embankment late  at night, and arranging that wtan I  got him there I would seize him witn  Irresistible force and throw him -Tver  into the stream. I could pictuie aluc  struggling among the ice noes, tb.  freezing water numbing his llinr.s  more and more with every paes np,  second; and, in fancy, would follow  him along tho bank, taunting him "With  ���������with his treachery, until the cold  proved too much for him and he disappeared from my sight. Hundreds of  such schemes occupied my brain to  the exclusion of almost every other  thought, and the more I perfected  them the more my hatred grew. At  this point I must pause to make an  explanation. I am quite aware that in  thus candidly revealing the depraved  condition of my heart at that particular period I am not presenting myself  In a very favorable light; but, I cr  tend, if I desire to set this chronica  of the blackest portion of my life before my reader in such a way that ho  may see for himself exactly what induced me to consider the awful temptation which was afterwards placed before me, I must not keep any single  Item back from him. To refrain from  revealing the motives would be to give  a false notion of the effects, and that  I have no desire at all to do.  The day following my return to the  mother country was destined to prove  an eventful one. According to custom  I rose early and went for a stroll. It  was half dark and   a   bitterly   cold  morning;  the air along the Embankment, which I choso for my promenade, could only be described as Arctic.  Ice floes covered the water from bank  to bank, and nocks of ravenous gulls  wheeled and screamed above my head.  The scene was depressing in the extreme, and I turned   to   retrace  my  steps to my hotel, feeling about   as  miserable as it would be possible for  a man to be. What did life contain for  me now? I asked rayself this question  for the hundredth time, as I walked  up the sombre street; and the answer  was, Nothing���������absolutely nothing..By  judiciously Investing the amount I had  inherited under my father's will I had  secured to myself an income approaching two hundred pounds a year, but  beyond that I had not a penny in the  world. I had been sick to death of Australia for some years before   I   had  thought of leaving It,  and   my   last  great disappointment had not furnished me -with any doslre to return to it  On tho other hand I had soon too much  of the world to be able to settle down  to an office life in England, and my  jenfeebled constitution, even had I dc-  blred to do so, would havo effectively  idebarred mo from   enlisting   In   tho  lArmy. What, therefore, was to become  of me���������for I couIO* not entertain the  prospect of settling down to a sort of  tregetable existence on my small la*  come���������I could not see. "Oh, if only 1  had not been taken   ill   after   Ben'a  death," I said to myself   again   and  again;  "what might I not then havo  done?" As Jt was, that scoundrel Bartrand had mado millions out of what  was really my property, nnd as a result I was a genteel pauper without a  hopo of any sort In tho world. As the  recollection   of   my    disappointment  came into my mind, I ground my teeth  and curBed him; and for tho rest of  my walk occupied myself thinking of  the different ways In which I might  compass his destruction, and at the  came time hatfjij^ny'selJF for lacking  the necessary pluck to put any one oi  them into execution.  As I reached the entrance to ray  hotel a paper boy came round the cor-  ������kw  crying his wares.  " 'Ere yer are, sir; 'orrlble murder  In the West End," he said, running to  meet me; and, wanting something to  occupy me until breakfast should be  ready, I brought a copy and went in  and seated myself by the hall fire to  read It. On the second page was a  column with the following headline,  In large type: ���������  "SHOCKING    TRAGEDY    IN    THE  WEST END."  Feeling in the humor for this sort of  literature, I began to read. The details were as follows:���������  "It is our unfortunato duty to convey to the world this morning the details of a ghastly tragedy which occurred last night in the West End.  The victim was Major-General Charles  Brackington, the well-known M.P. for  Pollingworth, whoso speech on the  Short Seivice Extension Bill only last  week created such a sensation among  military men. So far the whole affair  is shrouded ln mystery, but, it is believed, the police are in possession of  a clue which will ultimately assist  them in their identification of the  assassin. From inquiries made we  learn that Major-General Brackington  last night visited the Royal Shakes-  pearo Theatre in company with his  wife and daughter, and having escorted them to Chester Square, where his  residence is situated, drove back to  the Veteran Club, of which he is one  of the oldest and most distinguished  members. There he remained in conversation with some brother officers  until a quarter past twelve o'clock,  when ho hailed a passing hansom and  bade the man drive him home. This  order was given in the hearing of one  of the Club servants, whose evidence  should prove of" importance later on.  From the time he left the Club until  half-past one o'clock nothing more was  seen of the unfortunate gentleman.  Then Police-Sergeant Maccinochie,  while passing along Piccadilly, discovered a man lying in the centre of  the road almost opposite the gates of  the Royal Academy. Calling the constable on .the beat to his assistance,  he carried the body to the nearest gas  lamp and examined It. To his horror  he recognized Major-General Brackington, with whose features he was well  acquainted. Life, however, was ex-  tinot. Though convinced of this fact,  he nevertheless obtained a cab and  ������������������rove straightway to Charing Cross  Hospital, where his suspicions were  confirmed. One singular circumstance  was then discovered���������with the exception of the left eyebrow, which had  been cut completely awaj;, evidently  with some exceddingly sharp instrument, there was not a wound of any  sort or description upon the body.  Death, so the medical authorities asserted, had been caused by an overdose of some anaesthetic, though how  administrated it was Impossible to  say. The police are now engaged endeavouring to discover the cabman,  whom it is stated, the Club servant  feels sure he can identify."  With a feeling of interest, for which  I could not at all account, seeing that  both the victim and the cabman, whom  the police seemed determined to associate -with the crime, were quite unknown to me, I re-read the paragraph,  and then went in to breakfast. While  { I was eating I turned the page of the  paper, and propping it against the  cruet stand, scanned the fashionable  intelligence. Sandwiched in between  the news of the betrothal of the eldest  son of a duke, and demise of a well-  known actress, was a paragraph which  stirred me to the depths of my being.  It ran as follows:���������  "It is stated on reliable authority  that Mr. Richard Bartrand, the well-  known Australian millionaire, has  purchased from the executors of the  late Earl of Mount Chennington the  magnificent property known as Chennington Castle in Shropshire, including several farms, with excellent  fishing and shooting."  I crushed the paper up and threw it  angrily away from me. So he was  going to pose as a county magnate,  was he���������this swindler and liar!���������and  upon the wealth he has filched from  me? If he had been before me then, I  think I could have found it in my heart  to kill him where he stood, legardless  of the consequences.  After breakfast I went for another  walk, this time in a westerly dliectlon.  As I passed along the crowded pavements I thought of the bad luck which  had attended me all my life. From  the moment I entered the world nothing seemed to have prospered that I  had taken in hand. As a boy I was notorious for my Ill-luck at games; as a  man good fortune was always conspicuously absent from my business  ventures; and when at last a chance  for making up for it did como in my  way, success was stolen from me just  u I was about tc grasp it.  Turning into Pall Mall, I made my  way in the direction of St. James'  Street, intending to turn thenco into  Piccadilly. As I passed the Minerva  Club the door swung open, and to my  astonishment my eldest brother, who  had succeeded to the baronetcy and  estates on my father's death, came  down tho steps. That he recognized  me there could be no doubt. He could  not have helped seeing me even if he I  had wished to do so, and for a moment, {  I felt certain, ho did not know what  to do. He and I had never been on  good terms, and when I realized that,  In splto of my many years' absence  from home, ho was not inclined to  offer me a welcome, I made as if I  would pass on. He, however, hasten-  oa arter me, and caught me beforo 1  could turn the corner.  "Gilbert," he said, holding out his  hand, but speaking without either  emotion or surprise, "this is very unexpected. I had no notion you were in  England. How long la it since you arrived?"  "I reached London yesterday," I an-  swored, with a corresponding coolness,  ns I took his hand. For, as I have said,  there was that In his faco which betrayed no pleasure at seeing mo.  Ho was silent for halt a minute or  ������P������ADd I oould eaa that ho wan wandar-  fiYg Tiow fie" couin tie-si geT ffir <5t me. _  "You have heard   of   our   fathers  death, I suppose?" he said at last.  "I learnt the news in Sydney," I replied. "I have also received the Ave  thousand pounds he left me."  He made no comment upon the  smallnoss of the amount in proportion to the large sums received b>  himself and the rest of the family,  nor did he lefer in any other way to  our parent's decease. Any one watch-  lna- us might have been excused had  hey al?en us for casual acquaintances so cool and distant were we with  one another. Presently I enquired, for  politeness sake, after his wife who  he daughter of the Marqul of: Bel-  gravia, and whom I had, so far, never  ^"Ethelberta unfortunately is not very  well at present," he answered. Sir  James Pe'ckleton has ordere her complete rest and quiet, and I regret for  hat icason, I shall not be able to see  as much of you as I otherwise should  have hoped to do. Is it your intention  to remain very long to England?      h  "I have no notion," I replied, truthfully "I mav be here a week���������a year  -or'for the rest of my life. But you  need not be afraid, I shall not force  my society upon you. From your cordial welcome home, I gather that the  less you see of me the more you will  appreciate the relationship we bear to  one another. Good morning."  Without more words I turned upon  my heel and strolled on down ' the  street, leaving him looking very uncomfortable upon the pavement.  There and then I registered a vow that  como what might, I would havo no  more to do with my own family.  Leaving Pall Mall behind me, I  turned up St. James' Street and made  my way into Piccadilly. In spite of  the slippery roads, the streets were  well filled with carriages, and almost  opposite Burlington House I noticed a  stylish brougham drawn up beside the  footpath. Just as I reached it the owner left the shop before which it was  standing, and crossed the pavement  towards it. Notwithstanding the expensive fur coat he wore, the highly  polished top hat, and his stylish appearance generally, I knew him at  once for Bartrand, my greatest enemy  on earth. He did not see me, for which  I could not help feeling thankful; but  I had seen him, and the remembrance  of his face haunted me for the rest of  my walk. The brougham, the horses,  even the obsequious servants, should  have been mine. I was the just, lawful owner of them all.  After dinner that evening I was sitting in the smoking room looking into  the fire and, as usual, brooding over  my unfortunate career, when an elderly gentleman, seated ln an armchair-  opposite me, laid his paper on his  knee and addressed me.  "It's a very strange thing about  these murders," he said, shaking his  head. "I don't understand it at all.  Major-General Brackington last night,  and now Lord Beryworth this morning."  "Do you mean to say there has been  another murder of the same kind today?" I enquired, with a little shudder  as I thought how nearly his subject  coincided with the idea in my own  head.  "I do," he answered. "The facts of  the case are as follows:���������At eleven  o'clock this morning the peer in question, who, you must remember, was  for many years Governor of one of one  Australian capitals, walked down the  Strand m company with the Duke of  Garth and Sir Charles Mandervan.  Reaching Norfolk Street he bade his  friends 'good-bye,' and left them. From  that time until a quarter past one  o'clock, when some children went in  to play in Dahlia Court, Camden Town,  and found the body of an elderly gentleman lying upon the ground in a  peculiar position, he was not seen  again. Frightened" at their discovery,  the youngsters ran out and informed  the policeman on the beat, who returned with them to the spot indicated.  When he got there he discovered that  life had been extinct .for some uaa."  (To be Continued.)       ^  A  PROPER  EPITHET.

In less than a  month I noticed a slight change in my  condition. I continued the Pills for  three months and at the end of this  time the swelling had disappeared;  every pain and ache had left me and  T felt better in every way. I was  completely cured and once more able  to go about my work with ease. Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills are certainly  worthy of all the praise I can give  them."

Among the least known people of  the world to-day are the hairy Ainus  of the island of Yezo. 'A traveler  says of them: "The men grow great  beards, of which they are excessively  pioud, and their bodies are thickly  covered with hair, almost like' members of the monkey'tribe. The women grow, no hair on their faces,  but seem to' find a solace for this  imaginary'defect in tattooing mous-  'taches on their lips and often primitive designs on their 'hands and  arms and also "across their foreheads." ' Young unmarried, women  have very- little, tattooing on them,  but once a woman is married her  husband seems to take a pride iii  decorating his bride_with representations of hirsute- adornment. The'  modus operandi'is one which requnes  considerable fortitude on.the part of  the patient, since the crudest form of  tattooingr,iss adopted.1 This consists  of making" a number of incisions in'  the skin with the point of a knife.  A characteristic of the Ainu jrace is  the color of "their skin, which^is of a'  deep bronze or copper color," and in  nowise resembles any other 'of the  Oriental" races  "The* Ainus have no records, written or otherwise, of their, former  history nor of how and whence they  came "to inhabit the island of Yezo.  Legends, however, exist among cer-  tain of the Ainus to the effect that  ''many years ago Yezo was inhabited  by a race of-diminutive people who  were -conquered and apparently exterminated -.by the Ainus. ��������� These  people were called by'* the Ainus  Koro-pok-kuru, or pit,dwellers, owing  to their 'habit of living in' huts constructed over'a-form "of rectangular,  ciruclar or oval shaped pit, many  traces 'of which are still - found in  Yezo and the Kurile islands. ' A few  years ago the present writer also discovered on the Behring.Sea coast of  "Alaska some perfect remains ofa-pit  -dwellers' village, which, is-quite'unlike any settlements,made "to-day by  the Eskimo or Aleut natives of Alaska.  "The' Ainus/ claim .that at; some  remote period-they were themselves  the inhabitants of some far northern  country, and as evidence of this they  cite .their hairy - bodies. J'They :say,  "Why,' if we did not come from,a cold  country, should we need to have skins  like a bear?! It is possible that 'they  did migrate southward from the shores  of'the Behring Sea either-by-the way  of the" Aleutian islands or along the  coasts of Kamchatka-, and* the Kuriles.  ."Like certain other northern races,  the Ainus have no'* religion."-' .They  have-no'.knowledge of a "supreme being and no belief in"-a future state.  Mr. Landor,, who questioned , many  natives on various.subjects,-was once  scornfully-told by one of them, that  'the Ainus are taught - nothing and'  they know nothing.' This exactly describes the state,in which they,'live.;.'

Every parish clergyman 6f the Established Church.. in - England nnd  Wales is being circularized by the  Marquess of Salisbury,' who pleads for  the formation of a branch-cf "The  "Parents' League for the Assertion and  Maintenance of the Eight of Parents  to Determine the Character o* the  Religious -Teaching of Their Children." -.*".' ..   ,   f  Lord Salisbury, who is president of  the league, proceeds:  ' ''The education crisis is so acute,  the' attack to be delivered;upon de-.  nominational schools so .imminent,  the danger which threatens ;the religious basis of society so serious, -that,  no time should be lost in organizing  our forces.  "At such a moment are the parents  wishes to be unheard? Is-their essential authority over the teaching of  their children to be ignored? If not,  I am sure you will agree that a Parents' League such as is now being  organized is most necessary."  Accompaning the circular is a-  poperof instructions to those engaged in the formation of branches, from  which we gather that persons who are.  not parents may be enrolled as "as-  ���������sociates" at 4d., while parents will  pay 6d. These sums may be reduced  if the local branch so determines.-  The objects, of the league are stated to be "the assertion .and the maintenance, so far as is practicable, of  the right of parents to determine the  character' of the religious teaching of  their children in the schools ol the  country, and to have such teaching  given by teachers who are qualified  and believe in what they teach."  "Phantom Hounds.  Conan Doyle's "Hound of the Bas-  kervilles," a "fearsome animal,"-is  said to have its origin in the legends  of packs of spectral hounds which are  popular in various parts of England  and Wales. In the north of England  these apparitions are known as "Gabriel's hounds," in Devon the "Wisk,"  "Yest," or "Heath hounds," in Wales  "Cron Annwn" or "Own Wybir" and  in Cornwall the "Devil's Dandy dogs."  They are supposed to be evil spirits  hunting the bouIs of the dead. Generally they are only heard and seem  to be passing swiftly along in the  air, as they usually choose cloudy  nights for the pursuit of their prey.  Their yelping is said to be terrific,  resembling the note of a bloodhound.  All of which tends to show that the  origin of these legends of goblin  hounds is to be found in the terrifying noises mado by flocks of wild  geese.  Veteran   Commander   Tells   Story  Forty-Three Years' Service.  Forty-three years' sea-service in the  mercantile marine' must be quite exceptional. Yet that is the record of  Capt.

But such  a circumstance in no sense represents  a grievance. The commanders of regular liners ore quite content to take  their luck in such a matter, and fixed  sailings must naturally be'independent of high days and holidays. One  of the most astonishing features, of  Capt. Simpson's career is that,, while  he has made no fewer than 75 round  voyages to the Antipodes���������with only  ^one exception, sailing frorn London to  Sydney ,���������-he has never been shipwrecked and has never had a "man  washed ovtrboard.

Simpson, of course,  began his experience in sailing ship  days.(- He served liis time on a 'well-  known ' clipper ship,_, the Queen of  Nations., In those days the tea clip-  psrs.-with the first'of the new season's  tea,', raced home; from China, carrying those'"fancy" sails from which  they got''an 'extra knot or two in-a  favoring breeze.    - ���������"'        - ��������� '   ,    -  'At that period, or a little earlier,  the China seas were by no means  clear, of the,Celestial,pirate.

Sir Alexander]  Hosie,   Commercial  Attache   to   the 'British   Legation   at  Pekin, says that many of the provinces of China have a surplus population, and their labor is a valuable  export from ' China,   bringing  in- return into the country the profits derived  from  foreign lands.      Kwang-  tung and Fuh-kien are the great emigration   provinces,    but ' Chihli   and  Shantung,    principally    the    former,  have supplied nearly all the coolies  for South Africa, and it may be interesting to give here a summary of  the emigration up to Jan. 31, 1907.  The total number of coolies shipped  fiom China to South Africa was 63,'-  811, the total number landed at Durban was 63,563, the total distributed  to mines was 63,206,   and   the  total  employed on Jan. 31, 1907, was 53,-  828.   Up to the same date deaths numbered 2,005, repatriated by purchase  1,433, repatriated as physically unfit,  3,976, repatriated   by   state  aid 766,  while   99 were   undergoing  terms   of  imprisonment.     The -percentage   of  wastage of the number distributed to  the mines amounted to 14.99 per cent.  Of   the   total   number  which  sailed  from China 62,070 were from the north  and 1,741 from the south.   The total  amount paid by the Chamber of Mines  Labor Importation Agency in China  to the families and relatives of the  emigrants'   b"   the  allotment system  ti June 30, 1907. was $1.112.558.05., a  sum which of course represents only  a part of the miners' savings.

CANADA TO SUPPLY TIMBER TO  THE  WORLD  The 'general increase in the price of  wood for the past few years has had  the effect .oi turning public attention  to the timber supply in general. To  many, the increase ,m prices is sufficiently explained by saying that  there is a combine among lumber  produceis and manufacturers. But,  independent of the possible existence  of any combine, a deeper cause underlies the increase in prices, and the  cause, is this, that timber is becoming  haider and hauler for the manufacturer to get. Greater and greater  economy and use of materials formerly considered as waste is being introduced into the manufacture of wood,  but in spite of it all the price of logs  is going up, owing to higher wages  that have to be paid, greater distances  the logs have to be brought and many  other reasons.^ ' -s  Not in America alone is the scarcity of timber^being felt; it has become a world-wide question. Only  seven countries in the world are now  in a position to export timber. , In  Europe there are five, namely: Austro-  -Hungary, Norway, Sweden, - Finland  and Russia; in America there are two,  namely: Canada and- the United  States. But Russia, Austro-Hungary  and the United States are-increasing  their population and developing their  industries so fast that they cannot  long continue to be exporting countries. The timber of Norway is threatened with excessive cutting. Germany,  where the practice of forestry has  been brought to the greatest perfection, has never been able to supply  home demands, and is a heavy importer. . *  Canada', Sweden and .Finland are  left, and theirsupply is hopelessly deficient for the~world. If Canada were  to attempt to supply the United States  alone, its entire timber area would  be cut off and denuded in the course  of a very few years���������probably less  than a decade.  Various estimates of Canada's for-  .est land have been given. Eight hundred million acres was a few- years  ago accepted as pretty near the truth;  but considerng the damage caused by  fire and other destructive agencies,  it is doubtful 'if the ex'sting forests  cover half that area. To keep this  area in its most productive state, thus  enabling it "to meet the demand as  far as possible and to produce the  largest revenue, .is the problem set  those in control of.these areas, and  the protection of the forests against  fire and other dangers and their proper management under forestry methods is the only way in which this  can be effected.

How many modern readers of our  newspapers ever knew that Uncle Sam  once engaged in the camel business"to'  provide transportation across the burning sands? In 1S53 congress appropriated $30,000 for the purchase aud importation of camels, looking to the use  of that animal as an aid to army  transportation across what was then  popularly called the Great American  desert, embracing-California,. Arizona,  New Mexico and the greater part of  northern Texas. Congress was influenced "to take this action because of  the successful use of the camel In  semiclvilized warfare by the French in  Algeria and by tbe British in the  orient  It fell to the lot of Jefferson Davis,  then secretary of war and later the  president of the Confederacy, to carry  ont the wishes of congress. He detailed Lieutenant (after Admiral) D. D.  Porter, U. S. N., and Major Henry C  Payne, U. S. A., to proceed to northern  Africa and Asia Minor to buy the  beasts. The expedition brought back  seventy-five camels, one drove of thirty-one being shipped in the naval store  ship Supply and another of forty-one  In the United States warship Suwanee.  Both vessels landed their live cargoes  at Indianola, Tex., Feb. 10, 1S57.  They were driven thence to Camp  Yerde In the care of three Arab camel drivers, who were brought ont for  thc purpose under a year's contract  That year, in response to a request  from the senate, Secretary Davis mado  an elaborate report of the expedition,  which was subsequently published -na  nn illustrated volume of 300 pages.  The experiment was not a success. Its -  failure- was attributed to the fact that  thc camels became footsore and stalled ns soon as they attempted .to travel  over the rocky country outside the  sandy plains, and It ended in the release of the animals ln the Colorado  desert to shift for themselves. Thero  the camels thrived and multiplied. Ono "  of tbe herds contained over'100 head.  The miners and prospectors, howev--  er, did cot take L.ndly to their presence, because they stampeded pack animals and other domesticated stock  whenever they came ln sight It resulted finally in a war of extermination being waged against them as common nuisances, and what few escaped  that raid were slaughtered by the Arizona Indians for their flesh. Although  this experiment with tho camel as a  beast of burden fulled, it was probably  due to a misuse of the animal rather  than to any natural shortcoming ln it,  as its great valuo a������ a harden bearer  ln Africa and Asia Is undoubted.���������Dca-  .ver Field and Farm,  WHEN  APPETITE  It is bocnuse your food doet  not dlgost properly.

The season has been the best in  the history of the club, and brought  out some strong young players,  notably Chas. Somers, who led for  Dill iu the Warren competition.  For a time all was nob peace and  harmony between the leads and  skips in the Warren competition.  In tbe Itoss- competition, when the  rinks were reversed, the general  opinion among the younger players was that some of the skips  were not over zealous in the use of  the broom when requested to  sweep. There were dark .hints  about what would happen when  the time again camo around for  the election of skips. Finally a  rink of leads, skipped by Somers,  challenged a ring of skips, skipped  by Dill. In this contest the skips  skipped, led and swept, aud the  leads led and swept. It is not  necessary to go into details, the  play demonstrated that- throwing a  rock i.s not all of the game of  curling. As a consequence most  of tho skips'-are secure iu their  jobs for another year, but there  will come a time when it will not  be necessary for those skips to  knock their own rock" out of the  ring to even up the score.  Next year the club .expects to  have over a hundred curlers on the  ice aud the ice to accommodate  them, and 'will endeavor to have  the bonspiel here.  The Editor's Lecture. - ��������� -  A popular edicor tells the following, which he considers a- joke  on his power of attraction as a  speiker. lie was one. of several  citizens who visited the. city jail in  the town in which his paper was  published. Passing- along the corridor, he was halted by a voice  from one of the cells exclaiming  "Say, Cully, that was a good article on lead which you published  in last week's issue���������I used to  write as good as that myself."  " Why," exclaimed the editor,  '��������� were you ever an editor?"  " Well, I had a good' job once as  city editor on a daily paper till,  booze got hold of me and I went  from bad to worse, when I lauded  here."  After listening to the story of  the man's downfall, the sympathetic editor drew closer to the  bars across the door of the cell and  delivered a few words of good advice, and with which the cell inmate seemed to be greatly impressed. As he was about to depart, the prisoner exclaimed :  ���������'Don't go yet, pard ! Just give  me a few more tips, will you?"  The editor, pleased with the reception of his little lecture, and  with the thought thafc his advice  might be of souie comfort to au  ex-brother editor^ followed it up  with additional counsel. To this  the man with an intent expression  on his face, pressed against the  bars and only a few inches from  that of the editor, listened attentively.  When the latter made another  movement as if to join his friends,  who were about to depart, the  prisoner,    with    tear-filled   eyes,  M  begged Jiim to stay a moment  longer and give lit least a few  more words of good advice.  I can only repeat what I  have  already said,- replied   the editor,  deeply flattered and honestly thank  fill that any words of his might do  some little good.  Tell it over again, exclaimed the  prisoner, pleadingly. Come nearer  that I may not miss a word.  After talking for a minute or  two louger he noted that the man  gave a" sigh of apparent contentment and satisfaction.  Aud now, he continued. I've got  to go, but I'm awfully glad that  any words oi' mine have done yon  any good, my friend, and���������  " Twasn't your words that did me  good," interrupted, the prisoner.  " Twas your breath. I haven't  had a drink since I was pinched,  two mouths ago."  Thoroughbred eggs ior sale. S.  C. Rhode" Island Reds, S. C. Buff  and Brown Leghorns. S. C.
