That afternoon T was sitting In. my  usual place on tlio fore-hatch, smoking  and thinking about oar next port of  call, and what a miserable figure I  should cut before tho ship's company  if by any chance I should bo arrested  there, when I became conscious that  someone had como along the hurri-  -. ��������� cane deck and was leaning on the-rails  gn-itig clown al inc. t looked up, to  discover that it was none other than  "Miss Maybourne. Directly she saw  thai I was aware of hor presence she  moved towards tho ladder on tho  port side and came down it towards  whero I sal, Her dress was of some  (lurk-blue material, probably serge,  and was cut in such a fashion tliat it  showed her beautiful figure to the  very best advantage. A sweeter picture of an English maiden of gentle  birth than she presented as'shc came  down tho stops it would have boon  difficult. toTinrt. Kindness and sincerity  were the chiof characteristics of her  face, and 1 felt, a thrill of pride run  through mo as I reflected that she  owed her life to mo.  "When she camo up to where I stood,  for I had risen on seeing her approaching me, she held out her hand with a  frank gesture, and said, as she looked mo in the eyes:  "Mr. Wrexford, you saved my life  tho night before last, and this is the  first opportunity I have had of expressing my gratitude to you. I cannot toll you how grateful I am, but  I ask vou to believe that so long as  I live I shall never cease to bless you  for your heroism."  To return an answer to such a  speech would not seem a difficult matter at. first thought, and yet I found  it harder than I would at any other  time have imagined. To lot hor see  that I did not want to be thanked, and  at the same time not to appear churlish, was a very difficult matter. However, I stumbled out some sort of a  reply, and then asked her how sho  had managed to fall overboard iu that  extraordinary fashion.  "I really cannot tell you," she answered, -without hesitation. "I was  leaning against the rails of the  hurricane dock talking to Miss Durs-  ley and Mr. Spicer, when something  behind mo gave way, and then over  I went backwards into the water. Oh,  you can't imagine the feeling of utter  helplessness that came over mo as I  rose to the surface and saw the great  ship steaming away. Then you nobly,  -sprang in to my assistance, and once  more hope came into my heart. But  for you I might now be dead, floating  i ;  about' in the depths of tliat great sea.  ~ H-���������l>���������*/vwi,-v.������Mv'Vil..j',\C"i<rlti-'u.i.--������.iic-inj-  tion, and swept her pretty hands  across her face as if to brush away  tho thought of such a thing.  "It was a very narrow escape," I  said. "I must confess myself that I  thought the boat would never reach  us. And yet how cool and collected  you were!"  "It would have meant certain death  to, have been anything else," she answered. My father will be indeed grateful to you when ho hears of your  bravery. I am his only child, and if  anything were to happen to me I don't  think he would survive the shock."  "I am very grateful to Providence  for having given me such an opportunity of averting so terrible a sorrow,"  I said. "But I fear, like everyone lse,  you attach too much importance to  what 1 did. I simply acted as any  other decent man would have done  had he been placed in a similar position."  "You do not do yourself justice,"  she said. "But, at. any rate, you have  the satisfaction of knowing, if it is  any satisfaction to you, that Agnes  Maybourne owes her life to you, and  that she will never forget the service  you have rendered her."  The conversation was growing embarrassing, so I turned it into another  channel as soon as possible. At the  same time I wanted to find out something which had been puzzling me  ever since I had first seen her face,  and that was where I had met her  before. When I put the question she  looked at.me in surprise.  "Do you know, Mr. Wrexford," she  said, "that I was going to ask you  that self-same question? And for  rather a strange reason. On the night  before we sailed, you must understand,  I was sleeping at the house of an aunt  who lives a few miles outside Southampton. I went'to bed at ten o'clock,  after a rather exciting day, feeling  tired. Almost as soon as my head was  iipon the pillow I fell asleep, and did  not wake again until about half past  twelve o'clock, when I suddenly found  myself wide awake sitting up in bed,  with a man's pale and agonized face  staring at me from the opposite wall.  For a few moments I thought I must  be still asleep and dreaming, or else  fleeing a phantom. Almost before I  could have counted five it faded away,  and I saw no more of it. From that  time forward, like yourself, I was  haunted with the desire to remember  if I had ever seen tho man's face before, and, If so, where. You may Imagine my surprise, therefore, when I  found the owner of it sitting before  me on the hatch of the very steamer  that was to take me to South Africa.  Can you account for it?"  "N'dt in the least," I answered.  "Mine was very much the same sort of  experience, only that I was wide  awake and driving down a prosaic  London street when It happened. I,  too, was endeavoring to puzzle It out  tho other clay when I looked up and  found you standing on the deck above  mo. It seems most uncanny."  "It may have boon a warning from  Providence to iw which wo have not  the wit to understand."  "A warning It certainly was," I  said truthfully, but hardly in the fash-  ion sho meant. "And one of the most  extraordinary ever vouchsafed to  mortal man."  "A fortunate one for mo," sho answered with a smile, and then offering  mo her dainty little hand, she bade  me "good-bye," and went up the steps  again to tho hurricane deck.  From that time forward I saw a  good deal of Miss Maybourne; so  much so that wo soon found ourselves upon comparatively Intlmiito  terms. Though I behove to others sho  was Inclined to bo a llttlo haughty, to  mo sho was Invariably kindness and  courtesy Itself. Nothing could have  been moro pleasant than hor manner  wluin wo were taealhc*������ and vou raav  do very sure, nrtor an tnat x nacTlatoly  passed through, 1 could properly- appreciate her treatment of me. To be  takeni out of my miserable state of  depression, and, after so many years  ,of ill fortune, to be treated with consideration and respect, made me feel  towards her as 1 had never done towards a woman in my life before. I  could have fallen at her feet and kissed her shoes in gratitude for the luxury of my conversation with her. It  was the luckiest chance for both of  us when 1 went aft that night to'see  that photograph in the second officer's  cabin. Had I not been there I should  In all probability never have heard  Miss Maybourne's shriek as she went  over tho side, and in that case she  would most certainly have been drowned ; for 1 knew that, unaided and  weighed down- by her wet clothes as  she was, she could never have kept  afloat (ill thc boat reached her.  Strange as it may seem, I could not  help deriving a sort of satisfaction  from this thought.  It was evident that my refusal to  accept the captain's kind offer to take  possession, for tho rest of the voyage,  of tlie vacant berth aft, had created  a little surprise among the passengers.  Still, 1 believe it prejudiced the majority in my' favor. At any rate, I soon  discovered ihat my humble position  forrard was to make no sort of difference in their treatment of me; and  many an enjoyable pipe I smoked,  and twice as many talks I had with  one and another, sitting on the cable  range, or leaning over the bows  watching the vessel's nose cutting  its way through the clear green water.  One morning, after breakfast, I  was forrard watching the effect just  mentioned, and, as usual, thiiikin������  what my sensations would bo if I  should be arrested at Tcncriffe, when  I hoard footsteps behind me. On looking round I discovered Miss Maybourne and the skipper coming towards me.  "Good morning, Mr. Wrexford," said  tho former, holding out her hand.  "What a cousinnt  student of nature  you are, to be sure. Every morning  lately 1 have seen you standing where  you aro now, looking across the sea.  My curiosity could hold out no longer,  so this "morning I asked Captain Hawkins to escort me up here in order  that I might ask you what you see.  "I'm afraid you will hardly bo re-  peid for your trouble, Miss Maybourne,1' I answered with a smile, as  the captain after shaking hands with  me and wishing me good morning, left  us to speak to one of the officers who  had come forrard in search of him.  "But surely you must see something  ���������King Neptune, or at least a mermaid, ' she persisted. "You are always  watching the water."  "Perhaps I do see something," I answered bitterly. "Yes; I think you are  right. When I look over the sea like  that I am watching a man's wasted  life. I see him starting on his race  wilh everything in his favor that the  world can give. I see a school career  of mediocrity, and a university life devoid of any sort of success; I can see  a continuity of profitless wanderings  about the world in the past, and I am  beginning to believe that I can make  out another just commencing. Disgrace behind and disgrace ahead; I  think that is the picture I have before  me when I look across the sea, Miss  Mrn'iy a pretty'one,-is" ut '" ~     ������������������*  "You are referring to your own life,  I suppose?" she said, quietly. "Well,  all I can say is that, from what I have  seen of you. I should consider that  you are hardly the man to do yourself  justice."  "God forbid," T answered. "If I were  to do that it would be impossible for  mo to live. N'o; I endeavor, as far as  I am able, to forget what my past has  been."  She approached a stop closer to me,  and placed hor little white hand on  my arm as it lay on the bulwark before her.  "Mr. Wrexford," sho said, with an  earnestness I had not hitherto noticed  in her, " I hope you will not consider  me Impertinent if I say that I should  like to know your history. Believe me,  I do not say this out of any idle curiosity,-but because I hope and believe  that it may be in my power to help  you. Remember what a debt of gratitude I owe you for your bravery the  other night. I cannot believe that a  man who would risk his life, as you  did then, can be the sort of man you  have just depicted. Do you feel that  you can trust me sufficiently to tell  about yourself?" -  "What there issto tell, with certain  reservations, of course, you shall hear.  There is no one to whom I would confess so readily as to yourself. I will  noti in'-nilt you by asking you to let  what I tell you remain a secret between us, but I will ask you to try  not to judge me too harshly."  "You may be sure I shall not do  that," she replied; and then realizing  what her words implied, she hung her  head with a pretty show of confusion.  I saw what was passing in her mind,  and to help her out of her difficulty  plunged into the story of my miserable  career. I told her of my old home in  Cornwall, of my mother's death, and  my father's antipathy to me on that  account. On my Eton and Oxford life  I dwelt but lightly, winding up with  the reason of my being "sent down,"  and the troubles at home that followed close upon it. I described my bush  life in Australia, and tnld bov nf tho  great disappointment to which I had  been subjected over the gold mine,  suppressing Bartrand's name, and  saying nothing of the hatred I had entertained for him.  "After that," I said in conclusion,  "I decided that I was tired of Australia, and, having inherited a little  money from my father, came home, intending to get something to do and  settle down in London. But I very  soon tired of England, as I tired of  every other place; and hence my  reason for going out to seek my fortune In South Africa. Now I think I  have given you a pretty good idea of  my past. It's not nn edifying history.  Is it? It seems to me a parson might  moralize very satisfactorily upon It."  "ft Is very, very sad," sho answered. "Oh, Mr. Wrexford, how bitterly  you must regret your wasted opportunities."  "Regret!" I said. "Tho saddest  word In tho English language. Yes, I  think F do regret."  "You only 'think?' Aro you not  sure? Prom your tale one would suppose you were very so"ry."  "Yes, I think I regret. Hut how can  I be certain? The probabilities arc  tliat If 1 had my chance over again 1  should do exactly the sanio.  "It's not a pretty thought, perhaps,  to think that one's bad actions are the  outcome of a osid nature, but one Is  com polled to own that It Is true."  "You mustn't talk like that., Mr.  Wrexford," she cried; "Indeed, you  mustn't. In all probability you have a  long life before you; and who knows  what tho future may have In fltoro  for you? All this trouble that you have  Hiifi'ered may bo to lit you for somo  groat success In after life,"  "Thore can never be any success  -tor mo Miss Maybourne." I said, mora  bitterly tnan i oencve rnaa spoicen  yet. "There is no chance at all of  that. Success and I parted company  long since, and can never be reconciled to each other again. To the end of  my davs 1 shall be a lonely, homeless  man, without ambition, without hope,  and without faith in any single thing.  God knows I am paying dearly for all  I have done and all that I have failed  to do."  "But there is still time for you to  retrieve everything. Surely that must  bo the happiest thought in this frail  world of ours. God, in His mercy, gives  us a chance to atone for whatever we  have done amiss. Believe me, I can  quite realize what you feel about yourself. But at the same time, from what  I have seen of you, I expect you make  more of it than it really deserves."  "No, no; I can never paint what I  have done in black enough colors. I  am a man eternally disgraced. You  try to comfort me in your infinite compassion, but you can never take away  from me, try how you will, the awful  skeleton that keeps me company night  and day���������I mean the recollection of  the past."  She looked at me with tears of compassion in her lovely eyes. I glanced  at! her face and then turned away and  stareit across the sea. .Never in my  life before had hope seemed so dead  in my heart. Now, for the first time, I  realized in all its naked horror   the  effect of the dastardly deed I had com  mlttcd. Henceforward I was a social  leper, condemned to walk the world,  crying, "Unclean!  unclean!"  "I am so sorry���������so very sorry for  you," Miss Maybourne said, after the  little pause that followed my last  speech. "You cannot guess how much  your story has effected me. It is so  very terrible to see a man so richly  endowed as yourself cast down with  such despair. You must fight against  It, Mr. Wrexford. It cannot be as bad  as you think."  "i am afraid I am past all -fighting  now, Miss Maybourne," I answered.  "But I will try, if you bid me do so."  As 1 spoke I looked at her again.  This time her eyes met mine fearlessly, but as they did so a faint blush  suffused her face.  "I bid you try," she said very softly. "God give you grace, and grant  you may succeed."  "If anything can make me succeed,"  I replied, "it will be your good wishes.  I will do my best, and man cannot do  more. You have cheered rue up wonderfully, and I thank you from the  bottom of my heart."  "You must not do that. I hope now  I shall not see you looking any more  across the sea in the same way that  you were this morning. You are. to  cheer up and I shall insist that you  report progress to me every day. If I  discover any relapse, remember, I  shall not spare you, and my anger  will be terrible. Now good-bye; I see  my uncle signalling to me from the  hurricane deck. It is time for me to  read for him."  "Good-bye," I said, "and may God  bless you fo your kindness to one who  really stood in want of it."-  After that conversation I set myself  to take a more hopeful view of my  situation. I told myself that, provided I managed to reach my  destination undetected, I would work  as never .man ever worked before to  make an honorable place for myself  among those with whom my lot should  be flfv^.LTi'P-wbnJe, of J,he..r.eaijijnder_  should be devoted to the service of  my fellow creatures, and then on the  strength of their respect and esteem  I would be able to face whatever  punishment Providence should decree  as the result of my sin. In the strength  of this, firm resolve I found myself  becoming a happier man than I had  been for years past.  By this time we had left Madoria  behind us, and were fast approaching  Teneriffe. In another day and a half,  at the longest calculation, I should  know niv fats.  (To r,e Continued.)  SPRING BLOOD  IS BAD BLOOD  How to Get   New Health and  Strength in the Spring.

Why  Moisture   In  Air Takes  Globular  Shape When It Falls.  Why does rain fall in drops nnd not  In a sheet of water? How many boys  nnd girls can answer that question?  Perhaps those who cannot would like  to have the explanation, which can  best be given by telling first what rain  Is, says the Chicago News. The air  contains nt all times more or less watery Vapor, which is evaporated from  the ocean, lakes and rivers by the heat  of the sun. When the temperature of  the air falls below a certain point-  that Is to say, when the air loses a  certain amount of its heat���������this vapor  condenses into water again.  The particles of water are quite  small, and as they form in the air  they begin to fall of their own weight,  and In falling they meet and unite with  other particles, thus forming drops. If ,  the cloud from which they come be  near the earth, the drops are larger  than when It Is higher, for there la  less air resistance to be met In fall-  ,ing. The higher the cloud, then, on  general principles, the more the drops  nre broken up.  But even if water ever formed In  sheets or In a body up in the nlr,  which it does not, it could not possibly  reach the earth In that form, for the  resistance offered by the air makes It  break up Into drops. That is the principle of the shot tower, by the way.  Melted lead Is dropped from. an elevated point, and It brenks into shot before It reaches the ground.  Kept Leaping.

"Living like a king," is a favorite  republican expression to designate the  acme of luxury, but, as a matter of  fact, most modern ruler3 live very  simplv. Edward of England s cook  receives a salary of $10,000 a year,  but he is rarely called upon to prepare an elaborate meal. Both the  King and the Queen prefer simple  dishes. Plain and nourishing food  is what the King likes He is very  fond of oysters, and of vegetable  soups. Fowl, with toasted bread and  asparagus, is quite a favorite dish  on the roval table, and His Majesty  gencrallv 'takes a second helping ot  preserved fruit nnd toast.

She is also  verv fond of the American "fritter,"  and until a short while ago nn old  Virginia cook was employed to make  corn fritters, peach fritters, and to  prepare egg-plant with batter and but-  te sauce.  The Queen nf thc Netherlands is  especially fond of chocolate in all its  forms, and has a special "chocolate  chef." Queen Wilhelmina has also a  decided penchant for all kinds of milk  dishes, and for everything made with  ceam. ,  King Alfonso of Spain wns formerly  noted for his liking for highly seasoned and French dishes, but his  Queen, Victoria, has taught him to  like roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, it is said. Snanish dishes, this  English Queen of Spain declares, are  "too oily and too garlicky."  Boots Away Up.  Again the pendulum of taste has  swung, and the opposite extreme has  been reached.  The craze for oxfords seems no less,  but the desire for high tops seems to  be more. The so called; Napoleon top  on women's boots, the result of the  tendency toward shorter skirts for out  of door wear, is being made very attractive for walking and general outdoor wear as well as for the artistic  appearance of the boot and the comfort and support of the ankle. The  Increased length of the leg of there  boots gives a narrower and more slender effect to the foot and at the same  time offers increased opportunities for  elaborate decorative effects. Fancy  toppings of leather aud cloth are being  used In these boots, and both buttons  and laces are in use as fastenings.  A new notion in footwear Is a boot  with a pocket In the top. The Napoleon topped boot worn by women affords nn opportunity to engraft a little purse or pocket on the top of the  right boot which Is Inrgo enough to  hold a sum of money securely and  more conveniently than the time honored stocking receptacle.

Ruins of Ancient Structure Found In  Babylonia.  Many boys and girls do not know,  perhaps, that the archaeologists���������the  people that are always delving into the  past���������have, as they believe, located the  ruins of the tower of Babel, says the  Chicago News. The Birs Nimrud, the  "citadel of Nimrod," in Babylonia, they  fake to be the remnant of the tower  or of a temple that was built on the  same site.  This ruin seems to correspond more  nearly than any other with the conceived notion of the tower., It Is of an  .oblong shape, the circumference being  labout 7C2 yards. There is a deep furrow at the eastern end, that part of  the tower being not more than fifty or  3ixty feet In height, while on the western side it rises to a- height of 198 feet  . in a conical shape. On its summit is a  solid pile of brick, thirty-seven feet in  height by twenty-eight.in width and  diminishing in thickness to the top,  which is broken and irregular and rent  by a large fissure.  The bricks are fire burnt, most of  them bearing Inscriptions, aud so firm  Is the cerneut with which they are put  together that it is almost impossible  to get a brick out whole. There are  great fragments of brickwork on other  parts of the hill where the ruins stand.  They are all tumbled together and are  converted into vitrified masses, as If  they had been subjected to the action  of a fierce fire. All this is strange If  not suggestive when taken In connection with the ancient tradition that the  tower of Babel v-n������ rent aud overthrown by fire from heaven.  How to Save Bills For Specialists,  Manuicurists and Others.  There are several good habits that a  woman may acquire that(save bills for  specialists, manicurists, masseuses and  others and which insure her looking  well,; no matter what hurry she may  have been in while dressing. To feel  that details are not attended to will  put a woman at a disadvantage, and  she is so constituted that-unless she  feels herself at her best she never enjoys herself.  It is a very good habit after washing the hands to push back the cuticle  from the nails with the towel. This  keeps the nails always in good condition and renders frequent visits to the  manicure unnecessary.  It Is a good habit, too, to rub the  ears with a powdered chamois after  washing.' Who has not seen newly  bathed ears shine like a looking glass?  And, although there 'seems consolation  in such proofs or recent bath, the shine  can hardly be considered pretty.

MAGISTRATE   PRAISES   ZAM-BUK  A TRICK ON AN AMBASSADOR  The ' Different Interpretations'of the  Same Acts Performed by a Crochety  Spaniard and a Hard Headed and  Canny Old Scotch Butcher.  It is said that King James I. on removing to London was waited upon by  the Spanish ambassador, a man of erii-  dltinii. but who hud a crotchet in his  head that every country shouldhave a  professor of signs to teach him and the  like of him to understand one another.  The ambassador was lamenting one  day before the king this great desideratum throughout all Europe, when the  king snid to him: "Why, I have a professor of signs in the northernmost college in my dominions��������� viz, -at Aberdeen-but it Is a great way off, perhaps  001) miles."  "Were It 10.000 leagues off I shall  see him," snid the ambassador, "and  am determined to set out iu two or  three days," The king saw he had committed himself and wrote, or caused to  be written, to the University of Aberdeen, stating the case and desjring the  professors to put him off some way or  make the best of hi in. The ambassador arrived, was received with great  solemnity, but soon began to inquire  which of them had the honor to be professor of signs.  Being (old that the professor ���������was  absent in the highlands and would return nobody knew when, the, ambassador said, "I will wait his return',  though it were twelve months."  .Seeing that this would not do and  tbal they had to entertain him at a  great expense nil the while, they contrived a stratagem. There was one  (ii'ordy, a butcher, blind of an eye, a  droll fellow, with much wit and roguery about him. He was got, Instructed to be professor of signs, but not to  speak on pain of death. Geordy cheerfully undertook the role. The ambassador wns told that the professor of  sisns would be nt home next day, at  which he rejoiced greatly.  Next clay Geordy was gowned, wlg-  ged arid- placed in a chair of state in  a room iu the college, all the professors and the ambassador being in an  adjoining room. The ambassador was  shown into Geordy's room and left to  converse with him as well as he could,  the professors awaiting the issue with  fear and trembling.  The ambassador held up one of his  fingers to Geordy; Geordy held up two  of his. The ambassador held up three;  Geordy clinched' his fist and looked  stern. The ambassador then took an  ornnge from his pocket and held it up:  Geordy took a piece of barley cake  from his pocket and held that up  After wtilc-ll Ihe ambassador -bowed to  biin and retired to the other professor  who anxiously inquired his opinion  of their brother.  "Lie Is a perfect miracle," said the  ambassador.    "I  would not give him  for the wealth of the Indies." >  ' "Well." said tho professors, "to descend to particulars."  "Why," said the ambassador, "I first  lipid.up one finger, denoting that there  Is one God: he.held up two, signifying  that these are the Father and Son. 1  held up three, meaning the Father, the  Son and-'Holy-Ghost;'he clinched his  fist, to 'say; that these three are one  I then took out au orange, signifying  the goodness of God. who gives his creatures uot only the necessaries, but the  luxuries, of life, upon which the wonderful man presented a piece of bread,  showing that It was the staff of life  and preferable to every luxury."  The professors were glad that matters had turned out so well; so, having  got quit of the ambassador, they next  got Geordy to bear his version of the  signs.  "Well, Geordy. bow have you come  on and what do you think of yon  man*"'  "The rascal!" says Geordy. "What  did he do first, think ye? He. held up  one finger,- as 'much'as to say. You  have only one eye. Then I held up two,  moaning that my one eye was perhaps  as good, as both his. Then the fellow  held up three of his fingers, to say that  there were but three eyes between us,  and theu I was so mad at the scoundrel that I steeked my neivo and was  to come a whack on the side of his  head and would ha' done It, too, but  for your sakes. Then the rascal did  not stop with his provocation here, but,  forsooth, takes out nn orange, as much  as to say. Your poor, beggarly, cold  country cannot produce that.

C. A. KING, M. D.  How a Steeplejack Got Into Tight Fix  on Tall Chimney.  A well-known Welshman tells tho  following story of his childhood���������an  experience which came within an ace  of depriving the world of a' useful  man. "I was lost. Everybody .was  looking for me in every nook and  corner of the farm. Suddenly my  mother came out of the stables, all  white and trembling. She had found  me sitting in- a heap in the straw,  with both my fat little arms clasped  'quite tight round the hind leg of the  only unapproachablo animal in the  stalls���������a vicious, unbroken, thoroughbred colt, of whom even the men were  afraid. To have picked me up would  have been certain death���������for me, at  least. I had got there safely. I  might get back the same way. It  was my only chance. So my mother  called gently: 'Baby, baby,' then they  waited while a century seemed to  pass. Then they tell me I staggered  out with rosy cheecks and a heavenly  smile. At that moment my mother  fainted. To regain my feet I must  have crawled and scrambled and  clutched the legs and tail of what was  nothing more nor less than a vicious  wild, beast."  A well-known steeple-jack tells the  following: "Once I got into a tight  fix by an engineer's forgctfulness. I  wa3 repairing the top of a chimney  stack a hundred and fifty feet high,  and my work was nearing completion. I had arranged with the engineer not to fire the boilers until I  gave the signal. 'He forgot, and tho  stokers set the great furnace going.  I was on the opposite side of the stack  to that on which the ladders were,  and to my utter dismay I found myself cut off from them by intense heat  and thick stifling black smoke. The  heat and smoke mado my head reel.  I clutched the small blocking���������the  extreme top of the chimney���������to keep  myself from falling, but the stone was  bo hot that I burned my hands badly.  "To avoid" crashing down on the'  pavement of the mill yard far beneath, I had to incline my body somewhat over the mouth of the shaft. ' In  a few seconds all my hair was singed.  Suddenly a thought flashed through  my-mind: 'The guy-line below.' This  is a' line used for hauling up small  articles, such as tool baskets. It was  very slender, but it might bear my  weight. To get at it I had to slide  over the projecting parapet and feel  for the rope 'blind' as it were. But I  found it and wrapped my legs round  it sailor fashion, and gently let go  of the copi������g. Down, .down I went,  150 feet! My hands were nearly cut  to the bone when I landed���������but I did  land and that was the main thing.  The engineer nearly had a fit when I  told him."  Here is another personal narrative  told by a now famous traveler: "It  happened in Algeria. I wanted to  reach a place to which no high road  led and I could not go by train because I had anticipated my allowance  and for the moment was stone-broke  and could not raise may fare. So I  decided to walk along the railroad.  There was a gully to be crossed and  the viaduct which crossed it was of  a very primitive description. There  were planks and sleepers, but noth-  Ina   /.lnrt.      ~li ���������wno   jncl    o  .mipstinn   ()f  stepping from one sleeper to the next.  I trod very gingerly and tried not  to see too much between the sleepers  into the gulf below. But it was giddy  work, nevertheless. Before T was half  across I heard a train overtaking me.  There was nothing for it but to drop  down between the sleepers and hang  on like grim death till the monster  had passed over me. Being used to  gymnastics at school I managed it,  but it was a frightful trial to the  nerves, and I shall never forget it  to my dying day."  His  Little Joke.  There is an amusing story of a  Highland soldier who, while lying  Jangerously ill in hospital, expressed  a desire to hear the bagpipes once  more before he died. The hospital  doctor agreed, as there were only 14  inmates of the ward, and none of them  were serious cases.  A regimental piper was found to  play the bagpipes, and for a long time  he paced the ward playing tunes of  the homeland. The next morning the  piper called at the hospital.  "Well, doctor," he enquired, "how  is my countryman this morning?"  "Very well indeed," replied the doctor; "he wen', to sleep after your entertainment, smiling happily, and  awoke this morning a new man. He  will rapidly recover now."  "Good!" said the piper.   "Good!"  "But," added the medical man. "the  other thirteen patients are dead I"  THIS IS THE PARAMOUNT FEATURE OF  GREEN TEA  Free From Artificial Coloring, Dust,     Dirt   and  LEAD PACKETS ONLY ^A^tlXtl ���������������  All   Foreign   Substances.

Prof.  Saunders   and   Other  Scientists  Say It Is no More Exhausting  Than   Wheat. '  The question is  often  asked,    "Is  flax a specially    exhausting ' crop?"  Leading agricultural authorities   say  -.  that chemical analyses which   have  repeatedly been made of this    crop,  showing the principal elements of fertility taken from the soil during the \  period of its growth indicate that it  is no more exhausting than wheat or  oats.    Prof. Saunders  of the Dominion Lxperimental Farm, some   years  ago made a enreful  .study   of    this  question.   In a pamplet which ho published on tlie subject, referring to tho  results of chemical analyses, he said: '  1 lie greater part  of    tlie straw    of  v���������   !\\��������� ������'dis. and flax erown in   the  Aortli-Wcst is usually burnt, when tho   -  mineral   ingredients* taken   from   thet-  land are returned to  it in the form'-'  ot ashes.   In the East, where the straw'1,  is utilized chiefly for bedding anim-,  als,   the mineral    constituents takeni ���������  up are returned to the soil-with thp   '  manure, hence tlie seed only need be-,  considered.   The grain in the case of.'  tlie wheat crop; takes up a little more':  nitrogen    and    somewhat    less      of ?  phosphoric acid  and potash than is-'  taken by the flax seed; while the oat'J  crop takes for the grain a larger pro- ������������������  portion of nitrogen,  nearly one-thirfZ'-'  less ot phosphoric acid and about one-  eighth Jess of potash.   The difference  however, in exhaustive effect of these-C  several  crops  on   a  rich  soil  would'  scarcely be perceptible,    and    woult-'  not justify the opinion that flax is :," ���������  very exhaustible crop.    In some ex-'"  pen merits tried at the Experimental-  1-arm  at Brandon,  Man.,  in  sowirr'  '  wheat, oats and barley after flax, thr  results   obtained   point   to   the   sam������.  conclusion." , ,  However, it is not wise to grow flav  on the same soil year after vear .

Paul Bourget's attack, on .Germany  and Germans has aroused much criticism not only in Gorman ''newspapers,  but'iii the papers where he expected  to receive.support. The Paris Revue  says that Bourget's words arouse only  painful sensations. "When he speaks  of the venom of the miserable Kant  and of the musical misdeeds of Wagner, he harms himself only and does  nothing to lessen the fame of these  men of genius. France smiles nt the  assertion that she is under obligations  to Germany for nothing, for It is well  known and has been proudly proclaimed by Bourget that liis maternal ancestors came from Alsatla and originally from Germany. If for nothing  else, France Is indebted to Germany,  then, for Bourget."  Worms cause feverishness, moaning and restlessness during sleep.

Like the planets, they niiisfe be  kept in place by poweiful opposing  forces.  Tin-: people of Vancouver are  becoming alarmed, especially the  women. A thousand drummers  will hold a convention in that city  next month.  Ml-cii' of the Boundary news  printed in outside papers is dated  from Phoenix, notwithstanding the  good intentions of Greenwood's  Board of Trade to have it otherwise.  Ib'o.MK men run the universe by  sitting around a saloon talking,  while their wives at home study  practical finance and economy by  reading the signs on the washboard.

A t'KW tinhorns have -already  drifted back to the Boundary. Being a close season for buzzards no  one will shoot them and they will  hang around watching a chance to  steal from the innocent until public  opinion puts them to work, They  should be hived in Phoenix, whore  iu the past the tinhorn has found  more protection than those whom  he robs.    Geoitc. 13 Buiifi is well known on  the coast. He kept a hbtel and  marble works at Port, Essington  some time ago. When he wasn't  busy in the bar he would be doing  nice work on headstones. The  Indians are fond of buying monuments to placo over their dead. So  when one came to George to buy a  headstone he, with an eye to future  M-ade, made one sacred to tlie  ine:T:ory of John Jack and put  extra trimmings on it, and for $("5  he turned out a stone worth much  more money and a work |of art.  The Indian took the si ono across  to Queen Charlotte island and  when lie came lo the spot at. which  his relative had been drowned be  dumped the stone, overboard,  George was wild when he heard  this, for he was out SHO warl.h of  work and did not get a chance to  advertise, among the Indians. lTe  never thought" that the. Indian  would plant the stone in the ocean*  Tin* Kev. \V. AL. Rochester, who  is paid to keep up an agitation in  favor of .Sunday observance, sees  no reason why the law should not  be enforced in this province, particularly against the sale of yellow journals upon the streets ol  Vancouver dining the holy duyof  the week. The. journals alluded to  should not be sold upon any day.  They are filled with trash done in  daubs of red, yellow and black,  and tend to rob the mind of itslove  I'cn- truth, beauty and poetry. A  mind fed upon the average Sunday newspaper colored horror that  emanates from the United States  must become degenerate. These  daring journalistic, freaks that  conic over the line from Seattle,  New York aud other vulgar cities  of the United States, are an  abomination to literature and a sad  commentary upon the class who  buy and read them. There are  good Sunday newspapers, but they  are not painted like an Indian ou  the war-path, nor are they tilled  with the literary sewerage, that  (lows from minds prostituted by  the"love or Sr������-.r,-t.c._-wu���������rW_ to.the  mud and muck of the human race.  Tin-: majority of the newspapers  in the west will say nothing against  great trusts or corporations, because any journal that becomes  fearless or stands for the people is  snowed under for the hick of  money. The corporations buy the  press because they are not afraid  to spind money for that purpose.  The people do not-buy the press,  because they arc afraid to spend  money, and in consequence they  get the worst o"f it. The most  truthful and fearless journal ever  published in Canada was put out  of business by the postal authorities in order to please a trio of  men with great political influence.  The people and press silently saw  this outrage committed, but had  nothing to say.' They were too  much afraid to rise up in defense  of the only journal in Canada that  played no favorites and handed out  the truth in large bunches and exposed the evils of church, state  and society wherever found. This  journal became too dangerous to  the .grafters in Ottawa and they  put it out of business in the meanest and most cowardly manner.  Vet the slaves did not even make  a howl when liberty and justice  was slabbed. Simply whispered  that it was too bad, without taking their necks'out of the collar.  Thk more we give away the  more we have, and in order to help  ourselves we must advance the interests of others. Show us a town  in which the majority of thc people  are too slow to advertise their  business and we will show you a  town that does not assay much  higher than a dirty douce in a gale  of wind.  Thk ninjarity of doctors, lawyers  and preachers live upon records,  precedents and ghosts, Like parrots they chatter the lessons learned  at college, over ready to throw  rocks in front of the car of progress, and hand a piece of ice to  the rnossless man who jumps oil  the trail and poiuts the way to  better ground.  It is the errors that we commit  in the use of air, drink, raiment  and thought that makes so many  lly to religion to seek surcease from  sorrow and suffering. People who  are walking mistakes cannot be  saved by the doleful sermons of a  billious parson, and the majority  of parsons aro billions, A theologian as a rule iu a deceived egotist  The Kootenay Cigar Co. of Nelson have in the Royal Seal a cigar  that is known and smoked between  the wheat country and the blue  Pacific.
