(Continued;  \nion i eiimo. lo my senses again .1.  found myself, lying in a bunk in a  cabin which was certainly, notiiny own.  The'' ,appointments'��������� were decidedly  comfortable, if not luxurious; a neat  white-aiid-gold , washstand stood  against the bulkhead, with a large  mirror 'suspended''above" it,'. Under the  porthole,'which was shaded with a  small red curtain, was a cusliiotvjd  locker, and at ono end of this locker  a bandy contrivance for hanging  clothes. Two mei'i-���������one a young fellow  about my own age, and the other the  elderly gentleman with'.; whom I had  often seen Miss Maybourne^-walking-  were standing beside me Watching  me eagerly. When they saw that I had  recovered consciousness they seemed  to consider it a mat tor for congratulation.  "So you know us again, do you?"  said the younger man. whom T now  recognized as the ship's doctor. "How  do you feel in yourself?"  "Not very bright just at present,"  I answered truthfully. "But I've no  doubt I shall be all right in an hour  or two." Then, when a '.recollection.; of  what had occasioned my Illness came  over me, I said, "How is Miss Maybourne? I hope they got hor on board  safely?"  "Thanks to you, my dear sir, they  did," said the old gentleman, who I  discovered later was her uncle, as I  hud suspected. "I am glad to bo able  to tell you that she is now making  rapid progress towards recovery. You  must got well too, and hear what the  entire ship has to say about your  bravery."  'T hope they'll say nothing," I answered. "Anybody could have done  it. And now, how long have I ' been  lying here?"  "Since thoy brought you on board  last night���������about twelve hours. You  were unconscious for such a long time  that we were beginning to grow uneasy about you. But, thank goodness,  our clever doctor here has brought  you round at last."  The young medico resolved to stop  this How of (lattery and small talk,  so he bade me sit up and try to swallow some beef tea he had had prepared for me. With his assistance I  raised myself, and when I had polished  off as much of the food as I was able  to manage, he made me lie down once  more and try to get to sleep again. I  did exactly as I was ordered, and, in  less time than it takes to tell, was in  the land of Nod. It was not until I  wns up and about again tliat I learnt  the history ol' the rescue. Immediately  Miss lUaybourne's.shnak had roused  the ship, and I had sprung overboard  to her assistance, the chief officer, who  was on the bridge, ran to TUBjcusimj-  room telegrap.. and gave the signal to  stop the vessel; the second officer by  this time, with commendable activity,  had accompanied the carpenter, who  among others had heard the alarm, to  one of the quarter boats, and had her  ready for lowering by the time a crew  was collected. At first they had some  difficulty in discovering us, but once  thoy: did.soJhey_lost no time in picking us up. Miss Maybourne was quite  unconscious when they took her from  my arms, and I believe as soon as I  felt myself relieved of her weight I too  lest my senses and began to sink. A  boat-hook, however, soon brought me  to the surface. Directly we reached  the ship's deck the captain gave orders that I should be conveyed to an  empty cabin at the end of the saloon,  and it was here that I found myself  when I returned to consciousness.  For what length of time I slept after  the doctor and Miss Maybourne's  uncle left the cabin I cannot say. I  only know that when I woke the former would not hear of my. getting up  as I desired to do, but bade me make  the best of a bad job and remain  where I was until he examined me  the following morning. It must have  been after breakfast that he came to  sea me, for I heard the bell go, and  half an hour later tne voices of the  passengers die away as they left the  table and went on deck.  "Good morning, Mr. Wrexford," he  said, as he shut the door behind him  and came over to the bunk. "How are  you feeling to-day? Pretty well, I  hope?"  "I feel quite myself again," I answered. "I want to get up. This lying  in bed is dreary work."  "I daresay you find it so. Anyway,  I'll not stop you from getting up now,  if you're so minded; that is provided  you eat a good breakfast first."  "I think I can meet you on that  ground," I said with a laugh. "I'm as  hungry as a hunter. I hope tJtey're  going to give me something pretty  soon."  "I can satisfy you up on that point,"  he replied. "I saw the steward preparing the tray as I came through the  saloon. Yes, you must hurry up and  get on deck, for the ladles are dying  to shake you by the hand. I suppose  you're not aware you are the hero of  tho hour?"  "I'm sorry to hear it," I said in all  sincerity. "There has been a terrible  lot of fuss made over a very simple  action.  "Nonsense, my dear fellow, there  hasn't been anything said yet You  wait till old Manstono gets hold of  you. He would have said his say yesterday but for my preventing him,  nnd ever sinco then he has been bottling it up for you when you're well  enough to receive It."  "Who is this Mr. Manstone of whom  you speak? I don't think I know him."  "Why you must remember, he's  Miss Maybourne's uncle���������the old  gentleman who was In hero with mo  yesterday when you come to your  senses' again. You must have seen  him walking with her on deck���������a flue  military-looking oid chap, with a big  grey moustache."  "Now that you describe him, T remember him perfectly," I said; "but  I had never heard his name before. I  wish you'd tell him from me that I  don't want anything more said about  the matter. If they want to reward  mo, let them do It by forgetting all  about it. They couldn't do anything  that would please me more."  "Why, what a modest chap you  are, to bo sure," said the doctor.  "Most men would want the Royal  Humane Society's medal, and Homo  would oven aaplro to panics of sovereigns."  "Very probably. But down on my  luck, as I am, I don't want either. The  less notoriety I derive, the happier  man I shall bo. To c'ifng) the subject  I hope Miss Maybourne Is bettor?"  "Oh, she's almost herself again now,  X cxiuuil in imvu hor un   ������������<���������    "hnut  agaln'to clay. STirely you will not mma  receiving her thanks?"  "I should not be so clnuiisTi, I  hope," I remarked; "but all the same,  I would rather she said nothing about  the, matter. That is the worst part of  doing anything a little out of the ordinary: one must always be thanked,  and praised, and made a fuss of till  one begins to regret ever having committed an action that could produce  such disastrous results."  "Come, come, you're looking at the  matter in a very dismal light, I must  say," he cried. "Nino out of every ten  men, I'm, cortain, would have given  their ears for the chance you had of  rescuing Agnes Maybourne. That it  should have como to a man who can't  appreciate his' good fortune seems  like the irony of Fate."  I was about to reply to his jesting  speech in a similar strain when there  was a tap at the door, and a steward  entered bearing a tray. The smell of  the food was as' good as a tonic to  mo, and when the doctor had propped  mo up so that I could get at it in comfort, I set to work. He then left me  to myself while he wont io see his  other patient���������tlie lady of whom we  had just been speaking���������promising to  return in a quarter of an hour to help  mo dress.  ' I_ had just finished my meal, and  was placing tho-tray upon thc door in  such a way that tlie things upon it  could not bo'spilt if the vessel should  roll, when there came another tap at  tho door, and in response to my cry  "come in," the captain of thc ship appeared, and .behind him tlie elderly  gentleman whom the doctor had described to me as Miss Maybourne's  uncle, under whose care she was  traveling to South Africa.  ', "Good morning, Mr. Wrexford,"  said the captain, politely, ns ho advanced towards me and held out his  hand. "I hope you are feeling better?"  "I am perfectly well again now,  thank you," I replied. "Tho doctor is  going to let me got up in a few  minutes, and then I shall be ready to  return to my old quarters forrard."  "And that is the very matter I have  come in to see you about, said tho  skipper. "First, however, I must toll  what tne entire ship's company, both  passengers and crew, think of your  bravery the night before last. It was  as nobly done, sir, as anything I have  ever seen, and I heartily congratulate  you  upon  it."  "Thank you very much," I answered; "but I must really ask you to say  no more about it. I have already been  thanked ever so much moro than I  deserve."  "That could not be," impetuously  broke in Mr. Manstone, who had not  spoken hitherto. "On my own behalf  and that of my niece I, too, thank  you most heartily: and you may rest  assured I shall take care that a full  and proper account of it is given my  brother when I roach South Africa."  "Until we do so, I hope, Mr. Wrex-  ford," said the skipper, "that you  will take up your quarters in this  cabin, and consider yourself a saloon  passenger. I'm sure the owners would  wish it, and for my part I shall be  proud to have you .among us."  "And I say 'Hear, hear!' to that,"  added  Mr.  Manstone.  For a moment I hardly knew what  to say, I was touched by his kindness  in making tho olt'ir, but in my posi-  This' notoriety"was~uitoiy -io-uu- mo-  quite enough harm as it was.  "I thank you," I said at last, "and T  hope you will fully understand how  grateful lam to you for tho kindness  which prompts the offer. But I think  I will remain in my old quarters forrard, if you have no objection. I am  quite comfortable tnere; and as I  made my-choice ��������� oh-principle at the  beginning, I think, with your permission, I would rather not change it  now."  "But my dear sir," began the captain, 'you must let us show our appreciation in some practical form. We  could never let you off quietly, as you  seem to wish."  "Vou have already done more than  enough," I answered. "You have told  me what you thought of my action,  and you have also made me this offer,  the value of which, you may bo quite  sure, I fully appreciate. I have felt  compelled to decline it, and under  those circumstances I think it would  be best to let the subject drop.  "You are too modest by half, Mr.  Wrexford," said Miss Maybourne's  uncle. "Far too modest."  For some time the two gentlemen  did their best to persuade me to  forego my decision, but, hard as they  tried, they did not succeed. Thero  were so many reasons why I should  not take up my residence among the  first saloon passengers aft, and as I  reviewed them in my mind, I became  more than ever convinced that it  would be madness for me to forego  my resolution.  When thoy discovered that I was  not to be moved they shook hands  again, and then left me. Five minutes  later the doctor came in to help me  dress. He carried a bundle of clothes  in his arms, and when he had shut  the door behind him he threw them  on the locker under the porthole.  "Your own clothes, I'm sorry to  say, Wrexford," he began, "are completely spoiled; so if you'll allow me,  I'm going to lend you these till you  can see about some more. We are  men of pretty much the same build,  so what fits me should fit you, and  vice versa. Now, if you're ready, let  mo give you a hand to dress, for I  want to get you on deck into the fresh  air as soon as possible."  Half an hour later I was ready to  leave my cabin. Tho doctor's clothes  fitted me admirably, and after I had  given a look round to see that I had  not lefranything behind me, I followed  the medico out into the saloon. Fortunately, there wore very few pcoplo  about, but, to my horror, those who  were there would insist upon shaking  hands witli me, and telling me what  thoy thought of my action before thoy  would let mo escape. To add to my  discomfort, when I loft the saloon and  passed along the spar deck towards  my own quarters I had to run the  gauntlet of tho rest of the passengers,  who clustered round mo, and overwhelmed me with a chorus of congratulations on my recovery. I doubt  very much if over there was moro  fuss made over an act of common humanity than that made by thc passengers ol the Fiji Princess over mine.  If I had saved tho lives of the whole  ship's company, captain and stokers  included, there could not have been  more said about It.  Reaching my own quarters forrard  I went down to my berth, in search  of a pipe and a pouch of tobacco, nnd  whon I had found them, wit myself  down on tho fore-hatch and began to  smoke. It was a lovely morning, a  merry breeze hummed In the nhrouds,  and the great steamer was ploughing  hor way along with an exhilarating  motion that brought my ttlrongth back  quicker than any doctor's physic. On  tho bridge my old friend the second  offlcor wim pacing up and down, and  whon ho saw me ho camo to the rail,  and waved his hand In welcome.  ��������� The chief steward also found mo  out, and ombracod tho opportunity for I  tolling mo that my conduct reminded  bl~< ������f a soUflin'a   oxnlolts   in    the  l-iffogmy, which- sain narrative 1 reit  constrained to swallow with a few  grains of salt. When he left me I sat  where 1 was and thought how pleasant  it was, after all, to find that there  were still people in the world with  sufficiently generous natures to appreciate a follow creature's actions.  Ono question, however, haunted me  continually: What would the folk  aboard this ship say when they knew  my secret? And, above all, what  would Miss Agnes Maybourne think  when she should como to hear it?  I'Jo he Continued.)  c  PINE FOREST  IN HIS  BEDROOM  AGK FROM FAR NORTH  BRITISH NAVY MYSTERY.  Traditions Regarding the Death of Sir  Clouclesley   Shovel.  Of the almost complete wreck of a  squadron under Sir Cloudesley Shovel  on the rocks of thu Scilly Isles, together with the death of its gallant  commander, the greatest seaman of  the age, a number of curious traditions aro . associated both with the  events leading up to the catastrophe  ��������� and the fate of. the celebrated admiral.  The outstanding feature of the catastrophe is the mystery of Shovel's  death, which will probably never be  solved, and the latter turns upon the  admiral's emerald ring. One story  goes that the body was picked up on  the shore by a soldier and his wife  and buried by them on l'orth Rollick sunds. A spot is still shown at  l'orth Hollick as being the burial  place of the admiral, and, according  to tradition, grass has never grown  upon it. Subsequently tho identity  of the corpse was discovered. The  romains were exhumed and conveyed  to London via Plymouth, where they  wore embalmed. Lady Shovel rewarded thc soldier with a pension for life  and received from him the ring found  on  her husband's  finger.  Another story is that Paxton, the  purser of thc Arundel, discovered two  St. Mary men quarreling over the  possession of a ring. He at once recognized it as Shovel's ring and inquired from which body it had been  taken, and when that wns found he  knew nnd claimed the body. Lastly,  there is the startling narrative of foul  play���������viz., that many years after the  wreck an aged woman confessed to  the parish minister on her deathbed  that, exhausted with fatigue, one man  who had been washed ashore on a  hatch reached hor hut and that she  had murdered him to secure the valuable property on his person. She  then produced a splendid emerald ring  taken from the finger of her victim  and identified as the gift of Lord  Berkeley  to  Shovel.  The responsibility for this story  rests upon the admiral's grandson, the  Earl of Romncy. Modern research  reports rather in favor of the murder theory. The ring was eventually  recovered, and altered into the form  of a locket and set with diamonds  it "is a precious relic of the Berkeley  family.  The theory as to how it passed into  the  possession  of  the  family  of the  original  donor  is   that  Lady  Shovel  received   it   from   the   murderess,   as  stated, and bequeathed it at her death  to Lord Berkeley.   Several old works  of reference contain thc baseless story  that Ladv Shovel was aboard the Association'an<r.was-'arowne.i-ruoi'g-wiu.  her husband.

Those who have a leaning to the sentimental side of history will accept the  version that the hero of tho ballad was  a young and handsome Irish surgeon,  who, finding his way into London society about the middle of the eigbteeuth  century, was fortunate enough to secure the affections of Lady Caroline  Keppel, daughter of William, secoud  earl of Albemarle, and his wife, Lady  Anne Lennox, daughter of Charles,  first duke of Iticlmiond. The match  was naturally looked ou with disfavor  by the family of the young lady, and  It was during a period of temporary  separation that Lady Caroline is said  to have written the words of "Robin  Adair" and set them to the old Irish  tune of "Eileen Aroon," which she bad  learned from her lover. At length,  however, love triumphed, and the pair  were united on Feb. 22, 1758. Within  a few. days Atluir was appointed Inspector general of the military hospitals and, subsequently becoming a  favorite of the king, was made surgeon general, king's sergeant surgeon  and surgeon of Chelsea hospital.

"A good many' of the lakes were  swampy, which marred the scenery  somewhat, but finally we came one  day to a beautiful lake with rocky  snores crowned with magnificent pine  trees. Little creeks a>*d brooks emptied into it, at their mouth grew  reeds and water lilies, and standing  in the clear water were five moose  and two deer, as tame as you please,  never offering to stir. We said right  off that that was tho place for us,  but afterward we pushed on farther  and found even prettier places. We  finally built our shack on the bank  of a little trout lake, fed by many  small springs and little streams. We  tout down logs and put up our shack  ourselves, put up a cool-stove, set up  I'the cat that we had carried in from  twenty-five miles back, and were  ready for housekeeping..  1 "Once we had a pet clog, a regular  Jack London sort of dog.

The enste marks worn by women lu  India aye confined to the forehead and  are more uniform than those affected  by the men. '  The orthodox mark Invariably worn  on religious and ceremonial occasions  is a small saffron spot in the center of  the forehead. But the more popular  and fashionable murk is a,tiny one,  made with n g!unlike- substance, usually jet black In color, which Is obtained  by.frying sago til 1 "It gets charred and  then boiling it lu wnter.  Women who have not reached their  twenties nre sometimes partial to the  use of small tinsel disks, purchasable  in tlie bazaar at the rate of about  half n dozen for a pie. To. attach  these to the skin the commonest material used is the gum of the jack fruit,  quantities of which will be found sticking to a wall or pillar in the house,  ready for immediate use.  In the moro orthodox families it Is  considered objectionable that the forehead of a woman should remain blank  oven for a moment, and accordingly It  Is permanently marked with a tattooed  vortical line. The blister takes sometimes a fortnight to heal, but the Hindoo woman, who is nothing If not a  martyr by temperament and training,  suffers the paiu uncomplainingly.���������  Madras Mall.  THE GHOST OF THE FUTURE.  Fear of Coming to Want and the Terror of Failure.

'"���������  Wherever we go this fear ghost, this  terror specter, stands between men and  their goal. No person Is In position to  do good work while haunted by it.  There.can be no great courage where  there is' no confidence or assurance,  aud half the battle Is In the conviction  that we can do what we undertake.  - The mind, always full of doubts,  fears, forebodings, is not in a position  to do effective, creative work, but is  perpetually handicapped by this unfortunate attitude.  Nothing will so completely paralyze  tlie creative power of the mind aud  body as a dark, gloomy, discouraged  mental attitude. No great creative  work can be done by a man who is not  an optimist.

WARFARE IN IRELAND.  Peasants   In   Mountains  ���������   Farmers  Defy the Constabulary.  A''State of affairs bordering on revolution' prevails in some .parts of Ireland at the present time. - In the  mountains of Roscommon the peasants are in arms,' and have fortified  the entries against the police. One  hundred constabulary are encamped  near Boyle, County Roscommon, but  have so far made no attack. Recently they made a demonstration against  the mountaineers, but retired without  effecting anything.  The correspondent' of a London  paper wrote regarding this:  "Thc mountaineers claim*1 the ��������� withdrawal, of the police as a, victory. I  have just returned from''the, district.  When I went there last night I found  bonfires blazing on the hilltops, and  squads of men galloping about, evidently planning a great midnight demonstration in honor of the event.  "At the entrance to the mountain  fastnesses I was meo by several young  peasants mounted on ponies, who surrounded me, arid.-after-a short conversation, being satisfied that I was not  in the service of the Government or  the landlords, passed me through.  Some moments afterwards the long  toot of a horn enmc from this vedette,  and was answered from the hills and  along the route.  "The signal evidently insured a  free passage, for there was no further  hindrance, but hearty salutations  wore shouted from the hedges by  rough-bearded men and amazonian  women.

Mr. Smith stated that he went to  Mr. Cox's surgery to have a tooth  stopped, nnd at "the assistant's suggestion, he agreed to have his teeth  scaled. When this was being done  the hair of his moustache became entangled in the machine, and some of  it wns torn out by the roots.  "The whole of one side of my lip  was bald before I realized what had  happened," he continued plaintively.  "The assistant became very excited,  nnd paced up and down the room. He  seized a brush, scarcely knowing what  he was doing, and tried to brush part  of the centre of the moustache over  the bald portion.  "The   assistant   offered   to   pay   a  hairdresser for puttimr the moustache  right."  Mr.  Smith declared.   "I saw  Mr. Cox, and he advised me to have  a clean shave.   He said he bad known  n man to have the centre of his mous-  . tn'cnetpulled but.  "I renlied.  'Shnvo!     Tndeed,    no,  not after twenty years.'"  Tn    cross-examination   Mr.   Smith  said he was satisfied that he would  never have a proper moustache again,  and that ho would probably have to  hnvp it shaved off.

The greatest of the South Indian  poets says: "Tlie woman that worships not God, but her husband, when  such an ono says, 'let there be rain,'  it descends." Here (says Mr. T. Rama  Krishna, writing in the "Bharata")  is a religion given to the woman to  follow, a faith to observe, quite' in  accordance with the genius of the  nation, which in each of its component parts and states of life requires  in the matter of religion an individuality and speciality to faithfully follow and take pride in. Milton's ideal  has a close resemblance when he  speaks of Adam and Eve. "He for  God only; she for God in him." Such  is the belief instilled into every Hindoo girl before she becomes a wife,  and a wife she should become. Marriage is binding on her, and no woman is said to fulfil the conditions of  the ideal until and unless she goes  through tlio marriage rites and performs hor duties as a married woman. And marriage is a sacrament, a  union sanctified in the presence of  God' before the sacrificial fire, and  not a civil contractual relationship.  The first and most important commandment which tho Hindoo woman  i3 bound to obey is:. "Thou shult  have no others ns lord but thy husband." She shall not marry another,  either while he lives or after; if hor  lot be cast with an unworthy husband, she must bow to the inevitable.  If tho husband by accident becomes  permanently maimed or subject to  some_ loathsome disease, thc partner  of liis joys and woes as, well must  cheerfully accept the new condition  in the spirit of the teaching of her  religion. If the husband .predecease  the wife, she must face the new situation with a courageous heart/ arid remain to pray day and night for the  repose of his soul; or, if unable to  bear the pang of separation, she  wishes to wilfully ascend the funeral  pyre to bo. consumed to ashes with  her dead husband, religion allows her  to do so. But such an extreme step  was purely voluntary, and never  was made oompulsory.  Voluntary immolation on tlie funeral  pyre of the  husband  was  of frequent occurrence before Lord William  Bentinck's suppression of it; it is of  rare occurrence now, no doubt, on account of the act.   In olden times the  tendencies   of    thought   and   feeling  gave an impetus to the doings of such  deeds. Those times were more romantic,    and  influenced    the   minds   of  women   moro   readily   than in   times  modern, when thoughts and feelings  have changed according to the altered circumstances of, the country, and  women think it more noble to live and  endure, and serve better their departed  husbands  according  to  the  ideal  set   before   them.   This   devotion   to  the departed husband is not confined  to the widow only.   It is expected in  the wife, even in ���������circumstances of un-  nafural  conduct  on  the  part of  the  living husband.   He  may spurn her;  still she should not only bow to her  lord without a demur, but be loyal to  him.  BECAUSE OF ITS PURITY AND  FREEDOM  FROM COLORING MATTER.

Where flax is    sown    on    first  breaking a seed   bed  'comparatively  free from weeds is provided, the farmer derives a revenue from his land  tlie first yenr, and the crop effectually  rots the sod so ns to admit of ploughing to the ordinary depth in the autumn.    Then  it  can   be . sown  later  than   any  of  the   other  cereal  crops  because it matures more quickly, and  the  new  settler,   taking  up  land   in  Lhc early spring, may not be able to  prepare his land for a wheat crop in  time for seeding.    Farmers who have  only a portion of their land ready in  time   for  sowing  wheat,   barley   and  oats, may sow the flaxseed after the  other crops are in,   Indeed it is better  not to sow the ilaxseed too early as  the flax plant is tender in the' spring  and easily injured by frost, but it is  far less liable to injury    from    this  cause  in  autumn.    The  best  results  arc said to be obtained in the Canadian  West by sowing  from the 15th  to the 25th of May although good results  have  been  obtained from  seed  sown as late as the-, middle of June  and even later.  Last year the spring was very late  and the growing season short so that  i.1 1  GROUND  HOG DAY.   '  Survival   of   a   Festival   of the   Middle  Ages  In Europe.  The origin of ground hog clay is accounted for In the following way: Feb.  2, or Candlemas day,  was n  favorite  holiday, marked by public gaycty and  ceremonies In Europe during "(ho middle ages.    It is still marked the it by  ,fho closing of banks and offices, but  not otherwise, outside of the rending  of church services.   In the church,calendar It is known as the Feast of Purification of the Virgin and wns first Instituted   by   Pope   Scrgiiis  about  the  year GSM AVD.   Tho-popular name of  tho day is derived from the early custom of lighting up the churches* with  candles nnd carrying these in procession on this festival.  As to the weather superstition giving  to Cnnilleinas the name of ground hog  day, that Is a worldwide fable. In Germany it is the badger that breaks his  winter nap on this day to essay the  thankless task of weather, prophecy; In  Franco and Switzerland it is the marmot and In England the hedgehog. Observation shows, says the Housekeeper, that none of these small animals  do thus observe the date fixed; also  that the weather on tin's date does not  nceurately foretell that of the following two months, as is supposed.

Died at His Post.  ��������� Dying in his signal-box at Peterborough, Northants, England, the other day, a' signalman nobly did his  duty and; averted a possible railway  disaster. The man, whose name was  Edward Woods, aged 52, was suddenly taken ill while alone in the signal-  box at Peterborough, on the , Great  Northern Railway. He had just passed a train, but, remembering the fact  that his further inactivity would result in grave peril to passengers, he  blocked the line and died. Death is  supposed  to  have  been  away,' leaving the unhappy rider to  pick himself up, invariably finding that  he is miles out of his way.

Dangerous rocks  nnd crags are often called "carrig-na-  pbookn" (rock of the phooka), just as  deep pools or holes In a river or bog  are "poul-ua-phooka."

Vn.lucil/lu   R.,nriri.ri   rvr.cl   Mormnn   i./%ll/io  have been brought to light as the result  of  the  excavations   on  the  site  of    Christ's   Hospital,    in    Newgate  street,  London,  England,  in  connection  with (he extension of the General  Posloffice.    Several  months ago  the workmen came upon n pottion of  the old Roman wall which ran originally round the City, and the remains  have since been found to extend for  obout 400 feet under the site of the  dining-lmll,   tlie   direction   being   nt  right nngles to Newgate street.   The  wall   itself,  being   of   no   vnlue,   has  been destroyed and carted away, with  the exception of one specimen-piece.  The rampart was  about 8 feet wide  at the base and 7 feet at the top, its  depth bemg 16 feet.    The wall itself  was of Kentish rag-stone, being very  roughly built, strengthened with lime,  and held together by several horizontal'.'layers   of  tiles,   about  2   feet   6  inches  apart.    The   men  also  found  many  mediaeval  chalk  walls,Which  were apparently part of the ancient  Greyfriars' Monastery.  A large number of earthenware nnd  other relics were found near the City  wall, having, it is conjectured, been  thrown on, the rubbish-heap as useless.  Most of them were broken, and  many were only scattered fragments.  Among   a   large" number   of   coins,  which, have.not yet been properly.examined,   there   are   several    Roman  ones.   Curious bone skates, broad and  polished underneath,  with  holes  for  the  fastenings,  leathern   bottles  and  ��������� yns'es, have been found in the earth,  which has accumilated, or been made  up, in some places, to the depth of 20  feet.   There nre also a Roman pestle  and mortnrium, and earthenware pots,  tiles, bottles, but practically no iron  utensils.   All the Roman relics were  discovered within the confines of the  old   City.    Norman   relics   were   also  discovered  in   the   ditch   which   ran  outside the City wall. Here were some  mediaeval coins and tools, and a tall  Norman vnse, about A.D. 1100, which  has been mended.  West, but there wns n remarkable increase in the flax crop. In the pio-  vince of Saskatchewan, where most  of the ilax raised in the Canadian  West is grown, the yield in 1007 was  1,304,716 bushels of flaxseed as compared with 710,689 bushels in the year  1906. In Alberta the yield in 1907was  130,974 bushels of flaxseed as compared with 38,491 bushels in 1906. hi  Manitoba the crop of flaxseed was  317,347 bushels in 1907 as compared  with 274,330 bushels in  1906.  The increased yield of f'axsed was  no doubt largely due to the fact that  'armers sowed flaxseed When it was  too late to sow wheat.  While flaxseed is pre-eminently- the  pioneer's crop, it will pay the old  settlers also to reserve a portion ol  their land for this crop every -year,  taking care to have a proper rotation  jf' crops.  ��������� Tn ... il.o  ��������� IsTo.-il.wootcvr. -Otnico :   ' IL "  io  common to grow flax after wheat cr  jats, but no regular system of rotation is followed as a rule.
