A bunch of Italians had a fiee  light in one of the cabins near the  railway track Sunday evening, in  which axes, clubs, etc., were freely  used.

Author of "A Beautiful White Devil," "A Bid For  Fortune/' "The Marriage of Esther/'  "Dr. Nikola/' Etc, Etc  (Continued)  ���������-BuVWiTa't fenson "Have Uie auCIRr!-  ties for connecting this case with that  of Major-General Brackington?"  "Well, in tho first place, on account  of the similarity in the victims' ranks;  and in the second, because the same  extraordinary    amiothetic    seems    to  have been the agent in   both   cases;  and thirdly, for the reason   that   the  same peculiar mutilation    was    practised.    When    Lord    Beryworth    was  found, his left eyebrow had -been cut  completely away. Strange, i.s It not?"  "Horrible, I call it," I answered with  a shudder./'It is to bo hoped the police  will soon run the murderer to earth."  If I had only known what I do now  I wonder if I should have uttered that  sentiment with so  much   fervour?   I  yery much doubt it.   -  The following evening, for some  reason or another, cortainly not any  desire for enjoyment, I visited a theatre. The name or nature of' tho piece  performed I cannot now remember. I  only know that I sat in the pit, in the  front row, somewhere about the middle, and that I was so hemmed in by  the time the curtain went up, that 1  could not move hand or foot. After the  little introductory piece was finished  the more expensive parts of the house  began to fill, and I watched with a  bitter sort of envy the gaiety and enjoyment of those before me. My own  life seemed one perpetually unpleasant dream. In which I had to watch  the happiness of the 'world and yet.  take no share in It myself. But unhappy as I thought myself then, my i  have, an you want, .are you prepared  to do so much to save your life?"  He wrung his hands and moaned.  Then he pulled himself together.  "Yes, I'll do anything," he answered  hoarsely. "Give me the money; let me  have food first."  As he spoke his wife rose from the  doorstep, and came swiftly across the  snow towards us. She must have been  a fine-looking woman ln her day; now  her face, with its ghastly, lead-colored complexion and dark, staring eyes  was indescribably horrible. On her  head she wore the ruins of a fashionable bonnet.  VCome away!" she cried, seizing  the man fiercely by the arm. "Can't  you see that you are talking to tho  Devil, and that he's luring your soul  to hell? Come away, my husband, I  say, and leave him! If we are to die,  let us do It here ln tho clean snow  like honest folk, not on the scaffold  with ropes round our necks. There is  your answer, Devil!"  As she said this she raised her right  hand and struck mo a blow full and  fair upon the mouth. I felt the blood  trickle down my lip.  (< "Take that, Devil," she shouted;  "and now take your temptations elsewhere, for you've met your match  here." *  As if I were really the person she  alluded to, I picked up my heels and  ran down the street as hard as I could  go, not heeding where I went, but  only conscious that at last I had spoken my evil thoughts aloud. Was I  awake, or was I dreaming? It all seemed like some horrible nightmare, and  yet I could feel the   hard    pavement  he"spbKe" with *&" peculiar ftdginsrfsj.t  was not without Its charm. But as I  could not understand what he wanted  with me, I put the question to him as  .plainly as I could without being absolutely rude, and awaited his answer.  "I want the pleasure of .your company at supper for one thing," he  said. "And 1 want to be allowed to  help you in a^ertain matter In which  you are vitally interested, for another.  The two taken together should, I  think, induce you to give me your attention."  "But I don't know you," I blurted  out. "To the best of my belief I have  never set eyes on you before. What  business, therefore, can ycu have with  me?"  "You shall know all In good time,"  he answered. "Iu the meantime let me  Introduce myself. My name Is Nikola.  1 am a doctor by profession, a scientist by choice. I have few frier.ds in  London, but those I have are the best  that a man could desire. I spend my  life ln thi way that pleases me most;  that Is to say In the study of human  nature, i have been watching you since  you arrived In England, and have  come to the conclusion that you are, a  man after my own heart. If you will  sup with me as I propose, I don't  doubt but tlHit we shall agree admirably, and what is more to the point,  perhaps, we shall be able to do each  other services of inestimable value. I  may say cundldly that it lies in your  power Io furnish me with something I  am In setrch of. I, on my part, will,  in all probability, be able to put in  your vay what you most desire In the  world."  I stopped in my walk nnd faced him.  Owing to the broad brim of his hat,  nnd the high collar of his cape, I  could scarcely see his face. But hla  eyes rlvetted my attention at once.  "And that is?" I said.

Who the ladies,  and two of the gentlemen were I had  no notion; the third man, however, I  had no difficulty in recognizing, he was  Bartrand. As I saw him a tremor ran  through me, and every Inch of my  body quivered under the Intensity of  my emotion. For the rest of the evening I paid no attention to the play,  but sat watching my enemy, and  writhing with fury every time he  he stooped to speak to those with  whom he sat, or to glance superciliously round the house. On his shirt front  he wore an enormous diamond, which  sparkled and glittered like an evil  eye. So much did it fascinate me that  I could not withdraw my eyes from it,  and as I watched I felt my hands  twitching to be about its owner's  throat  When the play came to an end, and  the audience began to file out of the  theatre into the street, I hastend to  the front to soe my enemy emerge. He  was standing on the steps, with his  friends, putting on his gloves, while  he waited for his carriage to come up.  I remained in the crowd, and watched-  him as a cat watches a'bird. Presently a magnificent landau, drawn by the  same beautiful pair of thoroughbred  horses I had seen in the morning,  drew up before tho portico. The footman opened the door, and the man I  hated with such a deadly fervour escorted his friends across the pavement  and, having placed them inside, got in  ���������himself. As the vehicle rolled away  the bitterest curse my brain could  frame followed it. Oh, If only I could  have found some way of revenging my- ���������  self upon him, how gladly I would have  seized upon it.  Leaving 'the theatre I strolled down  the street, not caring very much where  I went. A little snow was falling, and  the air was bitterly cold. I passed  along the Strand, and not feeling at  all like bed, turned off to my left hand,  and made my way towards Oxford  Street. I was still thinking   of   Bart-  Just as I reached Piccadilly Circus  a clock somewhere in the neighborhood struck one. Then it dawned up  on me that I had been walking for two  hours. I stood for a moment by tha  big fountain, and then crossed the  road, and was about to make my way  down the continuation of Regent  Street into Waterloo Place, when I  heard the shrill sound of a policeman's  whistle. Almost immediately I saw an  officer on the other side of the road  dash down the pavement. I followed  him, intent upon finding out what had  occasioned the call for assistance.  Round into Jermyn Street sped the  man ahead of me, and close at his  heels I followed. For something like  three minutes we continued our headlong career, and It was not until we  had reached Bury Street that we  sounded a halt. Here we discovered a  group of men standing on the pavement watching another man, who was  kneeling "beside a body upon the  ground. He was examining It with the  i assistance of his lantern,  i "What's the matter, mate?" inqulr-  1 ed the officer whom I had followed  from Piccadilly. "What have you got  there?"  "A chap I found lying in the road  yonder," replied the policeman   upon  bis knees. "Have a look at him, and  ' then be off for a stretcher. I fancy he's  , dead; but, anyway, we'd best get him  i to the hospital as soon as maybe."  j     My guide knelt down,   and   turned  his light full upon the'vlctlm's face. I  peered over his shoulder in company  with the  other bystanders. The face  we saw before us  was  the countenance of a gentleman, and also  of   a  well-to-do member of society. He was  clothed in evening dress, over **ihlch  he wore a heavy and expensive   fur  coat. An opera hat lay in the gutter,  where it had probably been blown by  the wind, and an umbrella marked the  spot where the body had been found  in the center of the street. As far as  could be gathered without examining  it, there was no sign of blood about  the corpse; one thing, however, was  painfully evident���������the    left   eyebrow  had been severed from the face in to-  rand, and it seemed to me that, as I It0' From the cleanness of the cut the  thought, my hatred became more and   operation must have been performed  more intense. The very idea of living  in the same city with him, of breathing the same air, of seeing Ihe same  sights and meeting the same people  was hideously repulsive to me. I wanted him out of the world, but I wanted to do the deed myself, to punish  him with my own hand; I wanted to  see him lying before me with his sightless eyes turned up to the skies, and  his blood crimsoning the snow, and to  be able to assure myself that at last  he was dead, and that I, the man he  had wronged, had killed him. What  would it matter? Supposing I were  hung for his murder I To havo punished him would surely have been worth  that. At any rate I should havo been  content.  When I reached Oxford Street I  again turned to my left hand, and  walked along the pavement us far as  the Tottenham Court Road, thence  down the Charing Cross Road into  Shaftesbury Avenue. By this time tho  snow was falling thick and fast. Poor  homeless wretches were crouched in  every sheltered corner, and once a  tall man, thin and ragged as a scarecrow, rose from a doorway, where he  had been huddled up beside a woman,  and hurried after me.  "Kind gentleman," he said in a  voice that at any other time could  not havo failed to touch my heart,  "for the love of God, I implore you to  help me. I am starving, and so is my  wife in tho doorway yonder. We are  dying of cold and hunger. We have  not touched bite or sup for nearly  forty-eight hours, and unless you can  spare us the price of a night's lodging  and a. little food I assure you she will  not soe morning."  I stopped and faced him.  "What will you do for it?" I asked,  with a note In my voice that frightened oven myself. "I must have a bargain. If I give you money, what will  you do for it?"  "Anything," the poor wretch replied.  "Give me money, and I swear I will  do anything you may like to ask me."  "Anything?" I cried.   "That   is   a  large word. Will you commit murder?"  I looked fixedly at him, and under  the intensity of   my   gaze   he   half  shrunk away from me.  "Murder?" he echoed faintly.  "Murder?  Yes,   murder,"- I   cried,  hysterically. "I  want-suurder   done.  with an exceedingly sharp instrument,  A more weird and ghastly sight than  that snow-covered pavement, with the  flakes falling thick and fast upon it,  the greasy road, the oilsklnned policemen, the curious bystanders," and the  silent figure on the ground, could  scarcely, be imagined. I watched until  the man I had followed returned with  an ambulance stretcher, and tlren accompanied the mournful cortege a  hundred yards or so on its way to the  hospital. Then, being tired of tho matter, 1 branched off the track, and prepared to make my way back to my  hotel as fast as my legs would take  me.  My thoughts were  oppressed   with  what I had seen. There was a grim  fascination about the  recollection   of  the Incident that   haunted   me    continually, and which I could not dispel,  try how I would. I pictured Bartrand  lying in the snow exactly as I had  seen the other,  and   fancied   myself  coming up and finding him. At that  moment I was passing Charing Cross  Railway Station. With the exception  of a policeman sauntering slowly along  on the Other side of the street, a drunken man staggering in the road, and a  hansom cab approachlnfj us from Trafalgar Spuare, I had the street to myself. London slept while tho snow fell,  and murder was being done   in   her  public   thoroughfares.   The   hansom  came closer, and for some inscrutable  reason I found myself   beginning   to  tako a personal interest in it. This Interest became even greater when, with  a spluttering and sliding of feet, the  horse came to   a    sudden    standstill  alongside the footpath where I stood.  Next movient a man attired in a thick  cloak threw open thc apron and sprang  out.  "Mr. Pennethorne, I believe?" he  said, stopping mo, and at the same  time raising his hat.  , "That is my name," I answered  shortly, wondering how he knew me  and what on earth ho wanted. "What  can 1 do for you?"  He signed to Ms driver to go, and  then, turning to me, said, at the same  time placing his *-Ioved hand upon my  arm in a confide**.tlal way:  "I am charmed to make your acquaintance. May I havo the pleasure  of walking-a little way with you? I  should be glad of your society, and I  "BiAibre me, m; dear Mr. Ponne-  thorue, I am perfectly acquainted with  your story. You have been wronged;  you desire to avenge yourself upon  your enemy. It is a very natural wish,  and if you will sup with me as I propose, I don't doubt but that I can put  the power you, seek into your hands.  Do you agree?"  All my scruples vanished before that  magic word revenge, and, strange as  it may seem, without more ado I consented to his proposal. He walked into the road and, taking a whistle from  his pocket, blew three staccato notes  upon It. A moment later the hansom  from which he had jumped to accost  me appeared round a corner and came  rapidly towards us. When it pulled up  at the kerb, and the apron had been  opened, this peculiar individual invited me to take my place in it, which I  immediately did. He followed my example, and sat down beside me, and  then, without any direction to the  driver, we set off up the street.  For upwards of half-an-hour we  drove on without stopping, but in  which direction we were proceeding I  could not for the life of me discover.  The wheels were rubber-tired and  made no noise upon the snow-strewn  road; my companion scarcely spoke,  and the only sound to be heard was  the peculiar bumping noise made by  the springs, the soft pad-pad of the  horse's hoofs, and an occasional grunt  of encouragement from the driver. At  last is became evident that we were  approaching our destination. The  horse's pace slackened; I detected the  sharp rings of his shoes on a paved  crossing, and presently we passed under an archway and came to a standstill.     -  "Here we are at last, Mrv Penne  thorne," said my mysterious conductor. "Allow me to lift the glass and  open the apron."  He did so, and then we alighted. Tc  my surprise we stood in a square courtyard, surrounded on all sides by lofty  buildings. Behind the cab was a large  archway, and at the further end of it  the gate through which we had evi  dently entered. The houses were in  total darkness, but the light" of tha  cab lamps was sufficient to show me  a door standing open on my left hand.  "I'm afraid you must be very cold.  Mr. Pennethorne,"'said Nikola, for by  that name I shall henceforth call him.  as he alighted, "but if you will follow  me I think I can promise that you shall  soon be as warm as toast."  As he spoke he led the way across  the courtyard towards the door I have  Just mentioned. When he reached it  he struck a match and advanced into  the building. The passage was a narrow one, and from its appearance, and  that of the place generally, I surmised  that the building had once been used  as a factory of some kind. Half-way  down the passage a narrow wooden  staircase led up to- the second floor,  and in Indian file we ascended it. On  reaching the first landing my guide  opened a door which stood opposite  him, and immediately a bright light  illumined the passage.  "Enter, Mr. Pennethorne, and let  me make you welcome to my poor  abode," said Nikola, placing his ham,'  upon my shoulder and gently pushing  me, ]isSo������o "lim,.  (To be Continued.)  Toronto Newspapers Say Hundreds of  People  Will  Welcome This Ad-  vice,  if Only Partly True  What will appear very interesting  to many people here is, the article  taken from a Toronto daily paper, giving a simple prescription, as formulated by a noted authority, who claims  that he has found a positive remedy  to cure almost any case of backache  or kidney or bladder derangement,  in the fo'lowing simple prescription,  if taken before the stage of Bright's  disease":  Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half  ounce; Compound Kargon, one ounce;  Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three  ounces. Shake well in -a bottle and  lake in tcaspoonful doses after each  menl and again at bedtime.  A well-known druggist, when asked  regarding this prescription, stated  that tlie ingredients are all harmless,  and can'be obtained at a small cost  from any good prescription pharmacy, or the mixture would be .put up  if asked to do so. He further stated  that while this prescription is often  prescribed in rheumatic afflictions  with splendid results, he could see  no reason why it would not be a splendid remedy for kidney and urinary  troubles and backache, as it has a  peculiar action upon the kidney structure, cleansing these most important  organs and helping them to sift and  filter from the blood the foul acids  and waste matter which cause sickness  nnd suffering.

Learning that it was  the great diamond, the two men had  an anxious journey. Some months  later tho truth becarrie known, by tbe  Transvaal postmaster general's report,  that the diamond had really gone in  the mail as an ordinarily registered  package. The detectives' mission was  simply an elaborate piece of deception.  Combs Made of Old Shoes.  A mountain of old boots and shoes.  Indescribably ugly, Indescribably filthy,  lay in the factory yard.  "We'll make combs out of them,"  said the chemist, "combs that wiU'pass  through the perfumed and lustrous  locks of the most beautiful girls.  Seems strange, doesn't It?"  "A'ery."  "Yet it's a fact. That is what becomes of all the world's old shoes.  They are turned into combs. The  leather is first cut into small pieces and  Immersed two days ln a chloride of  sulphur bath; then it Is washed, dried  and ground to powder; then it is mixed  with glne or gum and pressed Into  comb molds.  ��������� "It makes good enough combs, but I  prefer the rubber ones myself."���������Exchange.  ���������w, ���������  Tho Overcoat,  Probably in no other department sartorial is there exhibited so much indifference' to hygienic considerations  as ln the overcoat The greatest fallacy of all perhaps in regard to thc  choice of an overcoat is that the terms  "weight" and "warmth" are synonymous.

There are some curious features in  the case of an old Manchester (Eng.)  woman who lived a simple and lonely |  life and died of starvation, although!  she had over $22,500 in money and,  securities.  Mrs. Ellen Cresswell, a widow, liv-,  ed her life quite apart from the outside, world, occupying a house in  Billington place, Clifford street, Chorl-  ton-on-Medlock, ���������a typical -working-  class district. "Recently the' -people,  'who live next door heard a'noise like'  some one falling, but ''their t knowledge of the eccentric habits-of their  [neighbor led them' to attach little importance to it. The, postman received  no answer, to his repeated knocks",'  and when the, rent collector palled  he was told by the neighbors that,  the old, woman had not been seen  for a week.      ' .,  1 The police were then informed 'and  two constables burst open the door  and found the old woman"lying-dead  on tho kitchen floor. She was-fully  dressed and the body bore no signs  oi violence,, though, it was-in a neglected and emaciated condition.-There  was little food in the" house, and -the  place generally, was in a deplorable'  state. There was strong evidence that  /the deceased, who was about 70 years  of age, had died 'of starvation. -'  A more careful search of the house  iby the police "showed that the'late  tenant, had balances 'in- Manchester  banks amounting to over $22,500. She  had had transactions .with the Manchester and Liverpool District Bank'  and the Manchester, and Salford 'Savings' Bank,' but most of the money  was deposited in the district. 'In  drawers and unlikely places' the police found $200 in gold,- while.stitched  to the clothing she was wearing were  'three sovereigns and some silver  amounting to $25. ' .  Efforts to find any^ of her relatives  have failed, and what the neighbors  say about her is - most -contradictory.  They agree, however, that she has a  eon on board ship', and that she buried  a son at Lancaster four or five years  ago. There is every indication-that  at one timej of her life' she lived in  more comfortable circumstances and  bettor surroundings," for - the police  found some old jewelry-and a quaint  miniature portrait of> a young man,  which is. believed to-be-that of , one  of her sons. , , ,   '   ��������� .

Through prosperity and depression, through times of war and oi  peace, he continued the publication  of his paper, during most of the time  filling simultaneously every position  in the editorial, mechanical and business staffs, never for a moment faltering "in his belief in the ultimate  future of-the country he loved so well.  In 1885, during tne stirring times oi  the rebellion, he alternated between  military duties at the garrison and  the publication of his paper as opportunities offered.  What more can be 'said than thai  he did his part well in Jtiis capacity  of pathfinder for western journalism'.  It required a man of energy and purpose,, a" man of great confidence, to  establish a newspaper so far removed  from the settled districts:   It required the courage  born of  strong conviction, to persevere during the early  days, when the country was slow in  developing, and to retain a faith then  that has been more    than   justified  in the marvelous progress nnd prosperity that has since taken place.  The Herald has been managed since  ' the death of Mr. Laurie by his son.  Mr. Richard C. Laurie, who though  not a journalist,    had    considerable  practical experience in the early days  of Winnipeg. The first paper on which  he set type was the Manitoba News-  Letter in 1871.   He was born at Owen  Sound in 1858, and received his earlier  education   at  the  public  school  at Windsor.   On coming to Winnipeg  in 1871, he attended the public school  taught by  the  late    W.  F.  Luxton.  Ho was a student of Manitoba College from 1872 to 1876 (mathematical  medalist);    Royal   Military    College  from  1877    to 1880    (gold  medalist).  He won a commission in the English  army although he did not accept it,  but adopted tho profession of survey-  and motion of atoms moving in vast  vortices, to learn thnt Inside the hardest and most' impenetrable of sub  stances there was probably a feverish  Intensity of inner motion.

The great man, with his amused and  weary smile, wn** Infinitely gentle and  left me, I will far more conscious  of the beauty ,d the holiness of  knowledge. 1 said something to him  about tbe sense of power that such  knowledge must give. "Ah," he said,  "much of what I have told you is not  proved; it is only suspected. We are  very much in the dark about these  things yet. Probnbly if a physicist of  ii hundred years hence could overhear  me~ he' would be amazed to think that  a sensible man could make such puerile statements. Power���������no, it is not  that! It rather makes one realize  one's feebleness ln being so uncertain  about things that are absolutely certain nnd precise In themselves, if we  could but pee the; truth. It Is much  more like tbe apostle who said: 'Lord,  1 believe. Ilelp thou my unbelief.' The  thing one wonders at is the courage of  the men who dare to think they  know."���������Putnam's.  German- Warehouse 'Confiscated   By  'Warship���������Alleged 'Contraband.,  ���������' It _ is stated that, a warehouse,, belonging Jo ^the, Hamburg "firrn, of  .Wonckhaus,' and' situated on the' island ofAbumusa, in' the Persian  gulf, has' been confiscated by the com-  .mander of- the British warship Lap-  iwing on the ground that it contained  'contraband goods. The Hamburg  i firm has called upon the German Foreign Office to take energetic'steps fojr  the recovery of damages.  I _ 'The firm issues a lengthy statement,  in which it brands as ridiculous the  assertion that the confiscated building held contraband, and alleges that  the action of the -British commander  had no other objectrthan to checkmate  a successful German commercial en-  terprise,-his real object being to transfer the oxide business which the  Hamburg rfirm ' was conducting., to  British hands and to rob the Hamburg-American line of a profitable  freight traffic.  The statement further declares that  the Lapwing brought an Arabian  sheikh to the island of Abumusa, and  that after the German firm's ^coolies  had been driven back to the Persian  mainland the sheikh prohibited the  Germans from further working the  oxide mines, although they had a  contract for that purpose. The sheikh  then fired upon the German firm's  representative.  Commenting upon the affair, tlie  leading Hamburg journal says:  , "The British procedure is an act  of violence of the worst kind and an  outrageous breach of the law, which  constitutes the sharpest contrast to  the assiduous assurances of friendship  of the British "press.  *"'We must insist that the German  Foreign Office shall take strong measures."  .

The position of the nautch girl is  no longer what it was in the Indian  social system. Not merely Europeans,  but some of the best among the natives, feel that in view of the gradual raising of tbe tone of society, the  evils associated with her profession  should cease to enjoy the toleration  accorded to them in the past.    ,  This view, however, is by no means  universal, and the conflict of opinion  is strikingly illustrated by the experience 'of Gauhar Jan, a well-known  nautch girl of Calcutta, and one of  the finest native" singers in India.  A rich Marwari family of Bombay  recently ^engaged her to perform at a  marriage ceremony, paying her a fee  of Rs 15,000 ($5,000). Later she visited  the Lady Northcote Hindu Orphanage,..and consented to sing in its aid  gratis in the town hall. The citizens  of Bombay, male and female, flocked  in large numbers to listen to her, as  tlie gramophone has made her namo a  household word in India. The handsome sum of $2,000' was collected on  the spot for the - orphanage. At the  close of the assembly Hon. Sir M.  Pcrozeshah Mehta pinned a medal on  her breast.  Hearing this, Mr. Justice Chandra-  varkar of Bombay, a well-known social reformer and Brahmin leader,  ceased his connection with the managing committee. A hot newspaper  discussion has followed. Mr. Tilak  and others have written in defence of  Sir M. Mehta, while other correspondents are against him. On another  occasion Gauhar Jan sang in aid of  the Mohammedan College of Allgarh,  but Nawab Mohsan-ul-Mulk refused  to receive any profit from that source.  ���������London Telegraph.  Hard Work.

With so much battling with the servant problem-there has sprung up'"a little code of servant superstitions which  many housekeepers observe. "I always shiver when a new cook burns a  hole in her apron," says one woman,  "for It means that she will not stay  with me long. I don't like to hove my  girls come to me dressed in black either, for it is a.8ign they won't^ stay  the year out."  Questioned as to some or the other  superstitions" which influence a housekeeper in dealing with her servants,  she said:  "Don't allow your new servant to  jome Just as the old one Is departing  It's very unlucky.  "It Is unlucky for a maid to reach  ber place of service so long as there  Is light enough for her to see to hang  up ber wraps.  "If you hire a maid on Friday, yoo  may expect smashed china.  "It is unlucky to forbid a servant  eating hearty meals the first day she  Is with you, for if not permitted her  appetite will never be satisfied, and  the will eat you' out of house and  borne.  "If you praise your servant before  breakfast, you will have occasion to  scold her before dinner.  "If your new servant has many scars  from burns on her bands, it is a sign  she will be a good cook. Look for  them If you are hiring a cook.  "If a maid has short, stubby fingers,  It Is a sign she isvwasteful and extravagant In tbe extreme.  "Do not hire a maid with hair of the  tight, curling variety, for it's a sign  she will not be neat in ber work.  *  "If a servant calls you 'lady' frequently in conversation, beware of nei;  tor she Is probably dishonest"  rio"hg the ruins of the old city of  Bagdad,  to the   left- of   the Tigris,  stands a large square brick structure  in which the Moslem keepers solemn  ly assert the body of Joshua is bur  ied.    It is useless to test their state  ments   by  the  apparent  age  of  the  building, for the, small square bricks  of its walls, gathered from the ruins  of .the  Arabic  period,   may .indicate  'only a reconstruction.     The present  building is not ancient. The'entrance,  protected  by a.portico, leads into a  large open court, which- is surrounded by chambers.        -���������  At the further end of the^court, occupying the entire rear of, the building, is the shrine, a spacious, window-  less chamber, lighted "only> by the  doorway and entirely destitute of fur  niture save for, the coarse'reed mat.s  which cover the brick floor. Its centra is capped by a .large dome, and  the walls have recently been white1-  washed,* yet ��������� in places beneath the  thin white ^coat appear the-more .ancient Hebrew inscriptions which were  once the interior decorations.. >  The tomb beneath the centre of the  dome is protected by a large rectangular paneled case of dark wood, and  ���������excepting in one place, where a panel  is missing, it is invisible. At the head  of the case are two tin projections,  about which are tied a number of  strings or rags torn from the gar  ments of the visiting pilgrims. One  day, while I was standing at the head  of the 8aci:d tomb, a young Moslem  woman, entered, and with'eyes wet  with weeping, she tore a small rag  from her garment and tied it about  one of the projections, while she mumbled a.prayer to God that before a  year hence, when she should come to  untie the rag, she might present htr  husband with* a child.  It was but a repetition of the i������c-  ture of. Hannah, the mother of Samuel, while she was at the temple we jp  ing and praying before Eli the priest,  "fn the shrine������ of the east tht -picture is still common. Before the.Government buildings, at Bagdad stands  a big cannon, which the ignorant  Arab women, aware of its^ tremendous  power, believe can answer prayer. Tbe  old g-un is halt hidden with the strings  and. rags tied about it, each to represent a prayer and could 'it speak it  might tell strange stories of the confessions which the confiding women  have poured out to it. So' with the  tomb *ot Joshua There the women  gather and pray for all'kinds of favors, firm iu the belief-that the prophet  will in some way cause'them to'be  granted.  Less than half a century ago the  tomb of Joshua was in Jewish hands,  but the Turkish officials caused a  number of-them to be-'arrested as  they were bearing the body of a noted  rabbi there for burial. They were imprisoned for attempting to bury a Jew  at the shrine of the great- prophet.  They were finally released Upon the  payment of large sums of money, but  the care of the tomb was taken from  them. Since then the tomb has been  forbidden to the Jews, and like most  Moslem things, it now shows sad neglect. Yet should we follow the Jewish woman as she orosses the old boat  bridge we might see her turn toward  the tomb and from a-distance look  longingly at the doorway which she  is .forbidden to enter, while her lips  utters-a prayer with the hope that  the long buried leader, even 'so far  away, may hear and answer it.

With Mother Ganga, as the pious  Hindoos reverently call her, no river  >n earth can compare in sanctity.  The old poem tells us that the heav-  ;nly Ganges _ flowed from the toe of  Vishnu and was brought down from  heaven by the prayers of the saint  Bhagiratha to purify the ashes of the  30,000 sons of King Sagara, who had  been burnt by the angry glances of the  ���������age KapHa.  ,  Ganga was^angry at being brought  flown from heaven, and to save the  6arth from her Impetuous rush Siva  caught the river on his brow and with  his matted locks checked its course.  The legends go on to tell how the descent of the Ganges disturbed the sage  lahnu In the performance of,his rell-  Slous duties, whereupon In his rage he  drank' up the river, but subsequently  relented and permitted It to flow from  bis ear.-  the  More Than She Needed  Mr. X���������Don't I give you   all  money you need?

One  Our  daps Never Take Cold.  With the approach of chilly weather  people are becoming fearful lest they  should take cold after a hot bath,.but  this "opinion is unable to reconcile itself with the immunity of the Japanese from colds.  The ordinary bath consists of a  large wooden tub, oval in shape and  fitted with a cover. Before he enters  the tub the bather thoroughly lathers  himself from head to foot and washes  the suds off by means of a wooden  ladle or dipper. He then sits in the  tub, immersed up - to the chin, for  several minutes, enduring a degree of  heat by which a European would be  well nigh parboiled.  When Japan first began to study  the methods of western nations the  excessive heat of the baths was  strongly condemned and & law was  made that the water in "the public  baths should be only moderately heated. This caused great discontent, so  a committee composed of European  and Japanese medical men was ap  pointed to decide the question. The  verdict was in favor of the national  custom, which was pronounced to be  not only harmless  but beneficial.  The high temperature of-the water  was said to open the pores of the skin  thoroughly, even without the use of  soap, and a healthy action of the skin  and cleanliness were secured which  it was impossible to get with any  amount of washing in cold or so-call  ed hot baths.  Scientific   Theory   of   How  Planet May Perish.  A scientific forecast of how the end  of the' world might come has been  (riven by Professor Ellard Gore. His  theory is that final cataclysm may pos-  Bibly be the result of a collision between the sun and some dark, dead,  derelict planet  Although astronomers have no actual proof that such dead suns exist,  without Jlfe or light and careering  about In space, they believe it quite  possible. The result of a collision between the sun and a dark planet  would be that the former's light and  beat would be enormously increased  and the earth instantly destroyed by  combustion.  Professor Gore tells how we should  bo warned of our approaching doom.  "When about 15,000,000 miles from  the sun, the dark body would begin to  Bhlne by reflected light In about ten  years it would have become so bright  as te be visible to the nnked eye. In  fifteen years it would be brighter than  any object except the moon. Very soon  afterward would come the great catastrophe of Its collision, moving at 400  miles a second, with the sun moving  it the same speed."  The Speedy-Mohawk.  According to the Shipping World of  London, the new high speed turbine  torpedo boat destroyer Mohawk, which  recently had several trial speed tests  -onder forced draft in the North sea, i������  one of the^fastest war vessels in the  world.   While all  the official figures-  concerning her speed tests have not  been made public, it has been learned  that she maintained for six hours a  Bpeed of 34*4 knots and later warmed'  up to a quurter of a knot-better on-  six   consecutive   tests   over   a   mile  course.   The  Mohawk,  which is propelled by  five turbines,  three ahead  and two astern,  was  built bf J.  8.'  White & Co. of EasfCowes under license from the Parsons Marine Steam  Turbine company.

Thc forms parson and  person bear the same relation to each  other as dark and clerk. From being  pronounced parson tho word has como  to be so written. Blnckstone,ln his  "Commentaries" says:  "Ho Is called 'parson' (persona) because by his person the church, which  Is an invisible body, Is represented,  nnd he is himself a body corporate In  order to protect and defend tbe rights  of the church which he represents."

Fault fixdi.vo peoim.e are prone  to dis-cafce.  AvMJSiiin   the hand  is  worth'  two in tlie deck.  We all shake the hand of the  man who laughs, while the chap  with the hard-luck story has to  mope alone in the back seats.  Tin*  hand  that guides the pen  rules the world.  T111*   hens  are  laying and   the  farmers are happy,  Goon and had times are largely  the result of thought.  Tin* world Owes every man a  living, but he must collect it.  Wkalth does not necessarily  bring happiness, bub iu help"- some.  G-kntij* spring is here, but so  far no poets have met an untimely  end.  Herb we are in the door of  April overstocked with wood and  no ice.  ,  We give an autograph to everyone sending.us 62 for a year's subscription.  Feopli' who read this _,paper  regularly have a chance to become  like Solomon.  Smokeless powder may be all  right, but what most of us want is  costless* money.  Is a few years Greenwood will  he a second Butte and blue ruin a  forgotten disease.  Money is more plentiful ,in England and we have a notion to  move this plant over there.  Tin: gambling fever is so rife in  Vancouver that tlie citi'/ens sometimes shake dice for umbrellas.  Tjie average civilized man is a  veneered savage. A slight jar will  break the enamel and show the  color of the animal.   ���������  It is a dull day, in , Greenwood  when somebody does not invent a  blue-ruin story or pull the pumps  out of the Mother Lode.  The Empire warns all people to  keep away from Prince Rupert except tourists and those who have  secured a job before they get there.  Aiisoluti* power invested in  any one individual,.will drive him  insane with tyranny. This applies-to "everything as well as  politics.

If they  did-not every, mine and srae'ter.in  the -Boundary would be running  full blast.  Pi'oi'Li-Jrom tlie niaiitirae provinces have a paper printed in thoii  interest in 'Frisco. It is called  th'* Maple Leaf, but should be  called McDonald's Weokly.  Ax invention has been discovered in California that will do  away with the noxious effects of  smelter smoke. We would like to  see it tried in Greenwood.  Stockholders are averse to  having smelters closed down.  Idleness does nob tend to improve  the price of stock,' nor keep rust  from eating up machinery.  Tin?, richness of the Findlay  rivet- placers is now being denied  in the press. Jim Bates must  have been dreaming when he told  that fairy story at JIazelfcon.  Exert a personal influence for  good upon others and the spirit  will leaven the mass and accomplish wonders. Try it in your  daily life and see how it works.  The teaching of religion in the  schools of Italy is liable to cause a  disturbance and troops are being  held in readiness to shoot loyalty  into tho crowd if it becomes necessary^     '���������         A I'REACiiK't in Atlanta rose np  in church and shouted. "Is there  a hell-?" Try an overdose of  Scotch poison,- and you will be convinced that there is at lea-t half a  dozen.  New York is becoming a homeless city, only twenty-five private  residences being erected there last  year. People who bought real  estate in that city a hundred years  ago are all dead or rich.  Witiiix the past three weeks  sixty million pounds of copper have  been sold in the United btates and  it is said lhat there is nob a pound  of copper lefc for sale above ground.  This is bad news for the peddlers  of blue ruin.  Vaxcouvek has lost one of its  great attractions. Tho soup kitchen is closed up for the season,  and many a hobo is shedding tears  as he hits, the hard pike in search  of another place where it is not  necessary  to work in order to eat.  H. M. Waliceu has established  a handsome paper in Enderby. It  is issued in magazine form, which  is somewhat unique for weekly  newspapers. Harry -should be  successful with his latest venture,  as he is a brilliant writer and one  of the hardest workers iu the profession.  Victoria, Prince -liuperb and  New Denver are all trying to be  the most beautiful cities in Canada. Ilere in Greenwood we are  looking for smelter smoke and  have no time to make this a beauty  spot. It has the finest climate in  B. C, and mixed with a taste of  pork and beans anybody can live  upon it.  The abolition in the Southern  States of the barroom has been a  blessing to the negro second only  to the abolition of slavery. Bad  whiskey caused most of the outrages in the South during recent  years. Bad, or even good boo/.p.  when generously distributed will  keepjilmost any community in turmoil. Booze is perfectly harmless  when kept in a bottle When  stored in the anatomy of the race  that is human it is liable to squawk  at any time and wake up the tired  policeman, or cause some other  kind of misery.  While en route to England  with his aunt, a young bank clerk  was arrested and . takon off the  train at Calgary for a $30 board  bill in Revelstoke. We are not  surprised at this,for we have often  wondered how the j*oung bink  ���������clerks of the West could pay for  anything, except neckties, out of  the small salaries they havo to  work for. In order to bo a, bank  clerk a young man should have a  remittance from a rich father while  he it-|paruing to control financial  affair.--. Otherwise theie is more  money in splitting rock in a mine  or driving a' four-horse team on a  smooth road.

Neil Getliing, of Slocan, who is  familiar with the northern country,  strongly deprecates the idea of peo-  ole going to tho new goldfields until reliable information reaches the  outside. Mr. Go-thing owns 240  acres of placer ground on Pete  Toy's bar, Findlay river. It is a  dredging proposition- and was located several ' years ago. - Mr.  Getliing has" never'visited the Ingenika, although he has spent several summers in the ^district. He  says that last summer' he met a  a prospector -named Goldie, who  owns claims on the Ingenika, and  who was going out for supplies.  Goldie did not enthuse over the alleged strike. He'said tlxy pros-  prospects, however, were excellent.  Mr. Gething will not'install a  dredge on his .concession until the  Grand Trunk,, Pacific railway is  built through the region farther  south.      _. '_  OIL IN WASHINGTON.
