Autos as yet are  very  scarce,   but bicycles,  buggies and  buckboards constantly vibrate the o/one  111 every direction.    The  farmer with his  oadof turnips, and the country lass with  her heckles move amongst tlie sceneiy  without raising a sensation.

(Continued)  .-i'-iiac niKnv~l nnti been smoluiig for  some tunc on tho fo'c'sle, but"after  supper, feeling tired, had gone to my  bunk at an earlier hour than ..usual.  For sorno reason my dreams were the  reverse of Rood., unci move than once 1  woke in a Crigiit, imagining myself in  danger.' To such a state of nervousness did this'.fright. af'last, .bring me  that, unable to sleep any longer, I got  out of bed and dressed myself. When I  was fully attired 1 sought the tlen'c,  to 'discover a f'ne ���������slai*lir;ht. night with  a nice breeze blowing. I made my way  to rnv usual spot foirard, and, leaning  on tho bulwark, looked down at the  sea. We were now in tho region   of  'Phosphorescent *."a,ter, and the liquid  round the boat's cutwater sparkled and  glimmered as If decked with a million  diamonds. In the apex of the bows  the look-out stood, while black and  silent behind him the great ship showed twice its real-size n the darkness.  The lamps shone brilliantly from the  port aiid starboard lighthouses, and I  could just manage to distinguish the  'officer of the watch pacing up and  down the bridge with the regularity  of an automaton. There was something  about tho silence, and that swift rushing', through'the water���������for wo must  have been doing a pood sixteen knots���������  that was most exhilarating. For something like an hour I stood and enjoyed it. My nervousness soon left me,  and to my delight I found that I was  beginning to feel sleepy again. At the  ���������end of the time stated I made my way  towards the ladder leading from the  topgallant fo'c'sle to the spar deck, intending to go below, but just as I  reached it a man appeared from the  shadow of the alloy way, approached  the bell, and struck three strokes���������  half-past one���������-upon it. At the same  instant the look-put called "All's well!".  The words were scarcely but of :his  mouth before there was a shuddering  and grinding crash forrard, then a  sudden stoppage and heeling over of  the great craft, and after that a dead,  ghastly silence, in which the beating  of one's heart could be distincly heard.  The confusion of the next few minutes can be better imagined than described. The vessel had slipped off and  cleared herself from the' obstruction  whatever It was tliat had caught her,  and was going on her way again, -but  at reduced speed.I heard the skipper  open his cabin door and run up the  ladder to the bridge shouting, "What  has happened?" The officer of the  watch replied, but at the same instant the sailors and firemen off duty  came pouring out of the fo'c'sle shouting. "She's sinking!   She's   sinking!"  .The . engtne-roora telegraph had meanwhile been rung, and the   ship   was  perceptibly stopping.; I   stood   where  I was_\von(lering_ail_the.time_whatJ.-  had better do.  "Every man to his station," bellowed me: skipper, coming tothe rails of  the bridsre. and funnoli^e��������� hie mouth  with his hands so that his voice might  be heard above the din. "Be steady,  men, and remember that the first man  who gives any trouble I shall shoot  without warning." Then, turning : to  the chief officer: he signerTto him to  take the carpenter and hasten forrard  In a.n endeavor to ascertain-the nature  of the injuries the vessel had received.  By this time all the passengers were  on deck, the women pale and trembling, and the men endeavoring to  calm and reassure them as well as  they were able. I made my way up the  ladder to the hurricane deck, and as  I did so felt the vessel give a heavy  lurch, and then sink a little deeper in  the water. A moment later the chief  officer and carpenter crossed the well  ar.d hurried up the ladder to the  bridge. We all waited in silence for  the verdict that meant life or death  to everybody.  "Ladles and gentlerren," said tho  skipper, coming down from the bridge,  afi.er a short conversation with them,  and approaching the anxious group  by the chart room door, "I am sorry  to have to tell you that the ship has  struck a rock, and in a short time will  be no longer nabitable for us. I want  however, to reassure you. There is  ample boat accommodation for twice  the number of our ship's company, so  that you need have no possible fear  about leaving her. How long it will  be before we must go I cannot say.  There is a strong bulkhead between  us and the Water which may stand  long enough for us to reach Teneriffe,  which is only about a hundred miles  distant. I think, however, it would be  better for us to be prepared for any  emergency. The ladies will therefore  remain on deck, while the gentlemen  go down to their cabins and bring  them such warm clothing as they can  find. The night is cold, and in case we  may have to take to the boats before  morning it will be well for everybody  to make themselves as warm as possible."  Without more ado the male portion  of the passengers ran down the stairway to the saloon like so many rabbits, I following at their heels to see  if I could be of assistance. Into tho  cabins we rushed at random, collecting such articles of apparel as we  could find, and carrying them on deck  ���������with all possible haste. The necessity  for speed was so great that we did  not pause to make selection or to inquire as to ownership, but took what  wo could lay our hands on and were  thankful for the find. In the cabin I  entered I noticed a pair of cork jackets pushed under a bunk. I dragged  them out, and heaped them on top of  tho other things I had collected. Then  a sudden inspiration seized me. On  the rack In the saloon I had noticed  a large flask. I took possession of It,  and then, collecting the other things  I had found, ran on deck again. I could  not have been gone half a minute, but  even in that short space of time a  change had corne over the ship. Her  bows wore lower In the water, and I  trembled when 1 thought of the result  of the strain on-the bulkhead. I found  Miss Mayboumo standing just where  I had first seen her. at a little distance  from the others, aft of the chart-room  and beside tho engine-room skylight.  She was fully dressed, and had a little  girl of eight with her, the only daughter of a widow named Bailey, of whom  she was very fond.  "Miss Maybourne," I cried, throwing  down tho things 1 had brought on tho  deck as I spoke, and selecting a thick  Jacket from the heap, "I found thoso  clothes In a cabin, I don't know who  thoy belong to, but you must put on  as much as you can wear."  She obeyed mo willingly enough,  and sihea I had buttoned tlio lout ear-  merit;,up a insisted on ner"putting o  one of tho cork, lifebelts. As soon as  she was clothed I put another garment  on the child, and then attached the  second lifebelt to her body. It was too  big for her to wear, but fastened round  her shoulders \ knew it would answer the same purpose.  "But yourself, Mr. Wrexford?" crLed  Miss Maybourne, who saw my condition. "You must hud a cork jacket for  yourself, or you will be drownded."  At the very instant that 1 was going  to answer her the vessel gave a sudden pitch, and before the boats could  be lowered or anything be /.one' for  the preservation of the passengers,  she began to sink rapidly. Seeing that  it was hopeless to wait for the boats,  I "dragged my two companions to the  ladder leading to the after spar deck.  When I reached it, I tore down the  rail just at the spot where Miss Maybourne had fallen overboard on the  Spanish coast a few nights before, and,  this done, bade them jump into the  sea without losing time. Miss Maybourne did so without a second  thought; the child, however, hung  back, and cried piteously for mercy.  But, with the ship sinking so rapidly  under* us, to hesitate I'knew was to  be lost, so I caught her by the waist,-  and, regardless of her screams, threw  her over the side. Then, without waiting to see her rise again, I dived in  myself. The whole business, from the  moment of tho first crash to the time  of our springing overboard, had not  lasted fivo minutes. One thing was  self-evident���������the bulkhead could not  have possessed the strength with  which it had been credited.  On coming to the surface again I  shook myself and looked about me.  Behind me was the great vesselrwith  her decks by this time almost on a  level with the water. In another instant she would be gone. True'enough,  before I had time to take half a dozen  strokes there was a terrific explosion,  and next Instant I was being sucked  down and down by the sinking ship.  How far I went, or how long I was  beneath the waves, I have no possible idea. I only know that if it had  lasted much longer I should never  havelived to reach the surface again  or to tell this tale. But after a little  while I found myself rising to the surface, surrounded by wreckage of all  sorts and descriptions.  On reaching the top, I looked about  me for the boats, which I felt sure I  should discover; but, to my surprise,  I could not distinguish one. Was it  possible that, the entire company of  the vesseicould have gone down with  her? The thought was a terrible one,  and almost unnerved me. I raised myself in the water as well as I was able,  and as I did so I caught sight of two  people within a few yards of me. I  swam towards them, and to my joy  discovered that.they were Miss Maybourne and the child upon whom I  had fastened the cork life-preservers  a few minutes before.  "Oh, Mr. Wrexford, cried Miss Maybourne, in an agonized voice. "What  are we to do? This poor child is either  dead, or nearly so, and I can see no  signs of any boat at all."  "We must continue swimming for a  little while," I answered, "and then  we may perhaps be picked up. Surely  we cannot be the only survivors?"  . ."My poor, poor uncle!" she cried.  "Can he have perished! Oh, it is too  awful!" -'-"���������  The cork lifebelts were keeping  them up famously, and on that score  ~T���������rv<l v-������u,--.������...������L������^-_^4-_ n.l l^Q.u +,_ o 1.11 l~f 1. ei  situation was about as desperate as  it well could be. I -had not the least  notion of where we.were, audi Knew  that  unlocc   wo   wctiQ.-piolcod .'Up     we  should be better drowned at once than  continue to float until we died of starvation. However, L was not going to  frighten my only conscious companion  aby such gloomy^ anticipations, so I  passed my arm round the child's waist  and bade Miss Maybourne strike out  for the spot where the ill-fated Fiji  Princess had gone down. At the same  time I asked her to keep her eyes opC^T  for a boat, or at least a snar of soma  sort, upon wnich we could support our.  selves until we could find some safer  refuge.  On the horrors of that ghastly swim  it will not be necessary for me to dilate. I must leave my readers to imagine them for themselves. Suffice it  that for nearly a quarter of an hour  we paddled aimlessly about here and  there. But look as-we might, not a  sign of any other living soul from  aboard that snip could we discover,  nor anything large enough upon which  three people could rest. At last, just  as I was beginning to despair of saving the lives of those whom Providence had so plainly entrusted to my  care, I saw ahead of us a large white  object, which, upon nearer approach,  proved to be one of the- overturned  lifeboats. I conveyed the good news  to Miss Maybourne, and then, with a  new burst of energy, swam towards  It and caught hold of the keel. She was  a big craft, and, to my delight, rode  high enough out of the water to afford  us a resting-place. To pull myself and  the child I carried on to her, and to  drag Miss Maybourne up after me,  was the work of a very few moments.-  Once there, we knew we were safe  for the present. ���������'���������_..'���������:  CHAPTER VII.  , For*some minutes we lay upon the  bottom of the upturned boat too exhausted to speak. I still held the unconscious form of little Esther Bailey  in my arms, and protected her, as  well as I was able, from the marauding seas. Though the waves about us  upheld many evidences of* the terrible  catastrophe,-such as gratings, broken  spars, portions of boat gear, still, to  my astonishment, I could discover no  signs of any bodies. Once, however, I  was successful in obtaining possession  of something which I knew would bo  worth its weight In gold to us: It was  an oar, part of the equipment of one  of the .quarter boats I imagined; half  the blade was missing, but with what  remained It would still be possible for  us* to propel the boat on which we had  taken refuge.  What a terrible position was ours,  lodged on the bottom of that overturned lifeboat, Icy seas breaking upon  us every few seconds, tho knowledge  of our gallant ship, with all our friends  aboard, lying fathoms deep below the  surface of the waves, and the remembrance that the same fa to might bo  ours at any moment; no possible notion of where we were, no provisions  or means of sustaining life, and but  small chance of being picked up by  any passing boat!  It was Miss Maybourne who spoke  first, and, as usual, her conversation  was not about herself.  "Mr. Wrexford," she said, and her  teeth chattered as she spoke, "at any  risk something must bo done for that  poor child you hold In your arras, she  will die else. Do you think we could  manage to got hor up further on to  the boat and then try to chafo her  back to consciousness?"  "By all means let us try," I answered, "though I fear It will prove a difficult matter, Sho seems very far gone,  poor little mite."  "With tho utmost care I clamborcd  OirtlifiCUD the boat UJI I ual with ss* I  Dtrracmustriae-xne* Keen Urine ciai'it-  ness wo could scarcely see each other,  but once the child was placed between  ���������us''we set to work rubbing her face  'and hands and trying by every means  In our power to restore consciousness.  Suddenly a great thought occurred to  me. I remembered the flask I had taken  from tne cabin where I had,found the  clothes; Iii an Instant I had dived my  hand into my pocket in search of It,  almost trembling with fear lest by any  chance it should have slipped out when  I had dived overboard, but to my delight it was till there. I had pulled it  but and unscrewed the stopper before  anyone could have counted a dozen,  taking tho precaution to taste it in  order to see that it was all right beforo  I handed it to Miss Maybourne. It was  filled, with the finest French brandy,  and, having discovered this, I bade  her take a good drink at it. When she  had done so I put it to the ' child's  ' mouth and forced a small quantity between her lips.  "Surely you are going to drink some  yourself," said my companion, as she  saw me; screw on the top and replace  it in my pocket.  But I was, not going to do anything  of the sort. I did not need it so vitally  as my charges, and I knew that there  was not enough in the bottle to justify me in wasting even a drop. I explained this and then asked her if she  felt any warmer.  "Much warmer," she answered, "and  I think Esther* here feels better too.  Let us chafe her hands again."  We did so, and in a few minutes  had the satisfaction of hearing the  poor mite utter a little moan. In less  than an hour she was conscious once  more, but so weak that it seemed as  if the first breath of wind that came  our way would blow the life out of  her tiny body. Poor little soul, if it  'was such a terrible experience for us,  what must It;have been for her?  7 What length of time elapsed from  the time of our heading the boat before daylighl'came to cheer us I cannot say, but, cramped up as we were,"  the darkness seemed to last for centuries. For periods of something like  half aii hour at a time we sat without  speaking, thinking of all that had happened since darkness had fallen the  night before, and remembering the  rush and agony of those last few  dreadful minutes on board, and the  awful fact that all those whom we  had seen so well and strong only a  few hours before were now cold and  lifeless for ever. Twice I took out my  flask and insisted on Miss Maybourne  and the child swallowing a portion of  the spirit. Had I not brought that  with me, I really believe neither of  them would have seen another sunrise.  Suddenly Miss Maybourne turned to  me.  "Listen, Mr. Wrexford," she cried.  "What .is that booming noise? Is it  thunder?"  I did as she commanded, but for  some moments could hear nothing  save the splashing of the waves upon  the boat's planks. Then.a dull, sullen  noise reached my ears that might  very well have been mistaken for the  booming of thunder at a great distance. Thunder it certainly was, but  not of the kind my companion imagined. It was the thunder-of surf, and  that beiiii so. I-knew there musk-be  witt.at no great distance from us, I  told her my conjacture, and then we  sot ourselves to wait with what patience we could command,   for   day-  -.ltBUl. -       - _    What a strange and, I might almost  say. weird dawn that was! It was the  oeginniiig ur a new inc ., ...������..���������_  ly altered conditions. The first ..shafts  of light found us still clinging to the  keel of the overturned boat, gazing  hopelessly about us. When It was light  enough to discern our features, we  two elder ones looked at each other,  and were horrified to observe the  change with the terrible sufferings of  the night had wrought in our couu  tenances. Miss Maybourne's faoe was  white and drawn, and she looked years  older than her real age. I could see  by the way she glanced at me that  I also was changed. The poor littlo  girl Esther hardly noticed either of  us, but lay curled up as close as possible to her sister in misfortune.  As the light widened, tho breeze  which had been just perceptible all  night, died away, and the sea became  as calm as a mill pond. I looked about  me for something to explain the noise  of breakers we had heard, but at first  could see nothing. When, however, I  turned my head to the west I almost  shouted in my surprise, for, scarcely  a mile distant from us, was a comparatively large island, surrounded by  three or four reef-like smaller ones.  On the larger island a peak rose ragged and rough to a height of something like five hundred feet, and upon  the shore, on all sides, I could plainly discern the surf breaking upon the  rocks. As soon as I saw it I turned excitedly to Miss Maybourne.  "We're saved!" I cried, pointing in  the direction of the island; "look  there���������look there!"        7  She turned round on the boat as  well as she was able and when she  saw the land, stared at it for some  moments in silence. Then with a cry,  "Thank God!" she dropped her head  on to her hands and I could see her  shoulders shaken by convulsive sobs.  I did my best to console her, but she  soon recovered of her own accord, and  addressed herself to me again.  "These must be the Salvage Islands  of which the Captain was speaking at  dinner last night," she said. "How  can we reach the shore? Whatever  happens, we must not drift past them."  "Have no fear," I answered; "I will  not let that happen, come what may."  So saying, I shifted my position to  get a better purchase of the water, and  then usin'g the broken oar began to  paddle in the direction of the biggest  Island. It was terribly hard work, and  a very fow moments showed me that  after all the horrors of tho night I  was as weak as a kitten. But by patience and perseverance I at last got  the boat's head round and began to  lessen tho distance that separated us.  At the end of nearly half an hour wc  were within a hundred yards of the  shore. By this time I had decided on  a landing-place. It was a little bit of  open sandy beach, perhaps sixty yards  long, without rocks, and boasting less  surf than any other part of the island  I could see. In addition to those advantages It was nearer, and I noted  that that particular side of tho Island  looked more .sheltered than the others.  Towards his haven of refuge I accordingly made my way, hoping that  I should not find any unexpected dan-*-  gcr lurking there when I should be  too close In to be able to get out again.  It was necessary for every reason that  we should save the boat from damage  for by her aid alone could wo hope to  inako our way out to passing ships, or,  if the worst, came, to strike out on our  own account for the Canary Islands.  That the rocks we were now making'  were the Salvage Group, as Miss May-,  bourne had said, I had no doubt In my  own mind, though how the skipper  came to bo steering such a course was  more than I rnuld Mi  (To bo  Continued,)  No man ever worries half as much  about his inability to pay hia debts  as doos tho man ho owos.  and FIREPROOF  | Easily applied, Cannot  Crack nor Fail Gf f  Sond us a skotoh showing snaps  and oxaol measurements of your  oeillnge or walls, and wo will  eubmft designs, estimates and  llljistrntod booklet froo.

It was a quiet,  harmonious ureal, and Mrs. Bowser  kept wondering what was going to  happen.  ���������When Mr. Dowser came home Monday evening he had no complaint of  finding the gate opeu or the doormat  turned end for end. lie ate heartily  of the dinner arid found it good.  Later* on a gentleman called and  asked him if he was interested In ballooning and wanted to stop for an hour  and sell him a share in the latest thing  in 'alreliips,' but he met with such chilling Indifference that he soon took his  departure.

Mrs. Bowser called his attention to  the fact that it was the regular night  for the weekly meeting of the Gay Old  Boys' club and asked If he wasn't going, and he replied that he might not  attend again this winter.  The evening glided away so peacefully that the cat sneaked out to find  some excitement and raise a row in the  back yard, and Mrs. Bowser tried in  vain to get interested in a book. Once  she_ asked Mr. Bowser why he didn't  try to Invent an ice machine, but he  simply shook his head.  Tuesday was almost a counterpart of  Monday, except there were more callers in the evening. A man who had a  model of a five wheeled wagon called  )and wanted to exhibit It, but Mr. Bowser courteously passed him on.  Auothor man. with a patent beehive,  got inside the door and had just.explained that with his hive the; bees  would make 200 per cent more honey,  when he was courteously told to call  again.   ��������� '. ��������� "...  Then two politicians called to see If  Mr. Bowser would accept a nomination  for mayor, and they were astounded at  his promptness In declining; also at not-  being invited into the library to have a  drink and a smoke.  "The beehive may be a good thing,"  observed Mrs. Bowser when Mr. Bowser was seated again.  Reads United States History.  ''More likely to be a swindle," was  the reply, and then he read a history of  the United States for an hour and went  to bed.  Same attitude when he arose on  Wednesday. After he had left the  house, for the oflice the cook washed  up her dishes and then came upstairs  to say:  "Are you going to send for the doctor  and ask hlnr what he thinks, ma'am?"  "There Is nothing to think about except your work."  "But, ma'ani, when all of a sudden a  man begins to get so awful good and  qulet"-  "Brldget, this Is your busy day. and  we nave no time to tain."  That evening n man with a wheelbarrow that did all tho loading and unloading and run Itself met Mr. Bowser  nt the gate and sought to financially Interest lit in, but ho was not heeded for  more than a minute.  Later on a mini with n patent cork  for cider barrels rang the bell.

Just before going to bed Mrs. Bowser  asked him why ho dldu't sell tho house  and buy a cranberry marsh, but be  carelessly replied that things were good  enough, and ho didn't care to upset  them.  Thursday dnwned on an even more  peaceful attitude If anything. During  tho night Mrs. Bowser got up aud  placed an old frayed collar nnd n pair  ofji.olcy socks where Mr. Bowser mimr  ggr,tTo!Tr~cTirieffir*a'ftcr fhe' obtiiitecT on  the monotony being broken. It .wasn't,  however.. He put on both collar and  Bocks and never said a word. The cook  bad her little scheme about the coffee,  but the weak stuff was swallowed  without protest. ,  Thursday evening brought the same  dreary harmony. Mr. Bowser hadn't  Invested In any hair dyes during'the  day and hndn't had any rows ��������� with  passengers on the street car corning  homq. He offered to go to the theater  or make a call on a neighbor. Mrs.  Bowser herself didn't care about It.  During the evening a man called  with a scheme to make hair grow on  the heads of baldheaded men by using  goats' fat. A week before that Mr.  Bowser would have taken him into .the  library and talked for two hours and  had all the goats in America scared  half to death, but now he curtly declined to discuss the project for two  minutes.  There .was also a man who had been  sent to the house, by the family butcher, ne had Invented a,way of making  raspberry jam out of cows' tails and  was prepared to show that the jam  sales would reach .fl.OOO.OOO. a year,  ���������half of "which would be clear profit,  but Mr. Bowser observed that it was a  cold night and would be colder before  morning and worked him outdoors.  Gave Mrs. B. a Book.  At bedtime the cook gave Mrs. Bowser an appealing look and wanted to  tell how she once had a brother who  was taken just the same way, but she  was hustled off-to hor room and given  no show.  Friday morning���������all serene.  Friday noon Mrs. Bowser telephoned  over to tho ofHce, and the answer came  back, "Never felt better in my life."  So quiet and harmonious was Friday  evening that pedestrians stopped In  front of the house and wondered what  had happened.  Mrs. Bowser was not charged with  selling the coal out of the cellar.  She was not charged with taking the  ax and chopping off the water pipes.  Nothing was said about going to the  poorhouse.  Not a word about alimony or divorce.  A man .called with a scheme to heal  Lake Erie to a bolliug point and then  use the water to melt the snow In  three states, but Mr. Bowser refused  to go into it.  - There was a second one with a  scheme to make the hens of the country lay four eggs every day in tho year,  including holidays, but he was dismissed with a wave of the hand.  Saturday morning���������serene still.  Saturday evening when he came  home there wns a look of sorrowful  dignity on Mr. Bowser's face, though  he asserted that he was feeling well.  Mrs. Bowser proposed that he buy a  chicken farm, that he go into strawberries, that he buy fire escapes by the  dozen, that he go. into any wildcat,  scheme, but he.'sat and smiled and  shook his head. He was Bowser no  more. It was with a great sense or  relief that she finaily heard him say  that he had got to go over to the.drug  store, aud she flew to help him on with  his overcoat.-- Then- she " wished' that  something would happen-to him before  he got back, and, when the tearful  Bridget came up from the kitchen to  console her both wept In unison and  cried in chorus:  "Oh, what has become of the real  thing?"        - M.

The modern detective has of late  been compared to a keen and discerning physician, Prom a few apparent  tokens���������a rag, a button, .a'handkerchief, a footprint���������if he is an observer, and -is. endowed with the gifts  necessary to * his profession, he will  often be able to reconstruct all the  'different^ events connected with a  drama, and discover the culprit--  just as an able doctor manages to give  the right diagnosis from a few exterior signs. The famous detectives  invented by Gaboriau, Conan Doyle,  and Edgar Poe are types'to be found  in real life. We read every day ^ of  remarkable facts concerning modern  detectives and their art.- We will select a few of the most typical. Some  years ago at Lyons a woman was  found strangled. , She bore on her  neck five finger-marks���������four on the  loft and one on the right, which was  broader and shorter. Tlie defective  was struck by the irregular disposition of these marks, and tried to ap-  ' ply his own fingers to them. He  found' it impossible, without folding  his forefinger in a peculiar and abnormal way, and thus inferred that  the murderer had an ill-shaped finger.  The fact made his search for the  criminal easier. The man was discovered; his forefinger had boon injured  in an accident, hit, confessed his guilt  'The Tobacco Ash Clue.  In a small Belgian village a.detective found near the body of the victim  a cylinder of cigarette ash. The detective, who knew a good deal about  tobaccos, was able to convince himself that the ash came from Algerian  tobacco.' This article , being rare in  that remote village, he inquired from  the tobacconist, who was able to give  him the description of a man to whom  the day before lie had sold a packet  of ��������� these particular cigarettes. Two  hours later the presumed-, murderer  was arrested, the packet of cigarettes  being found in his .pocket. These examples, which could easily be multiplied, show gifts of observation and  reasoning. How is it, then, that the  number of undiscovered and unpunished crimes increases every year.  The reason !s that the methods employed by criminals have "improved." Their methods have become  scientific, most scientific. The criminal of to-day handles chloroform,  opium, morphia with all the cleverness of a physician. Acain, the tools  used by the modern jail-bird are unrivalled masterpieces. One amazinp  proof of the scientific knowledge of  the modern criminal and his keennciss  In keening abreast of modern discoveries lies in the following fact: Recently in Marseilles the huse safe of  a bank wns rapidly opened bv means  of a complicated apparatus which had  only been  invented  by a prominent  onpinocv   10   monlHa   pi cviously !       Dill  the detective also avails him������elf of  scientific discovery. Formerly, in  cases of forgery, for instance, a drop  of water was placed on the forged  words. If "the paper had been  scratched and its size removed the  water was immediately sucked in; if  the paper, had not been scratched  the dron remained for a while- on thp  top. This process was primitive, and  spoilt the document. Nowadays the  suspicious paper is photosraphed,  and on the pi oof Hie marks of  scratching are easily detected bv very  clear differences in'the color. Photo'  graphy is also nsr-d in the case of for-  efrios made by means'of chemicals  When a heap of burnt documents i?  ���������fennel in the,'fireplace,' thin sheets of  class are carefully inserted between  the burnt pinr>r������. As soon as onr  sheet is on the glass it is rendered  less brittle by moans of a special  liouid. nrd it is unfolded and photo-  sraphod. The prncr-ss is repeated with  evcrv sheet, and after a few hours  all the documents are easily-read.  Classified Bloodstains.  A p**oe<\ss formerly used for the  cLiPsiiicfition of bloodstains consisted  in examining them under the microscope, and- from the appearance of  the red globules the investigators  would draw .their' conclusions as tc  the nature of the blood. Unfortunately this examination cave no result  when the bloodstains were not recent  To-day. ������ more scientific method i11  used. The stain is ���������washed; a few  drops of the water used are poured in-  b n .'.'t"be containing some specific  serum fmm a rnbbit inoculated with  human blood. When the addition of  the water produces in the serum a  line deposit, end gives a misty on-  pesranee to the. liquid, one can be  ppifectly certain .that.the bloodstain?  were human. A detective must bn  . and usually is nowadays, a psychologist  On a sheet of paper a series of  words are written, a few of them hav-  im.' no connection with, and others  having a direct or indirect connection  with, the crime. The list is handed  to the prisoner. He is asked to pronounce lonrllv the words which ��������� by  association of ideas���������come to his mind  when rondinc; tho written words. It  has been discovered that for words  having no connection with tho crime  his answers come at once. At the word  "ink," for instance, the man wi.U  answer rapidly "paper, pen, write,"  or a similar word. If he is innocent  he will nnrwer in the same manns:  and.' with the same rapidity to all  words whatever they may bo. But  if he is guilty he will avoid carefully  those words "having any relation to  his crime, or will hesitate a long time  before sayinjr, for instance, "blood,  dogger, heart," after having read  aloud the word "knife" on the list.

Escaped the Frost That Injured'Much  of the Whoat Last Year.-  A piominent business man whose  intoic&ls demand a very close'study  of Northwest crop conditions, said recently: xt is an inteiesting - fact  that while theie was a shoitage m  most of the cereal crops last year, the  flax crop of the v/anadian West was  larger than ever-before. This was  cliieliy due to the fact that flax can  be sown later than wheat, barley or  oals as it matures much more quickly so that in a short season with early  host is is not so risky a crop as wheat.  Flax i& vary extensively grown in the  Noi tliwcstern States, but me fanners  of Canada linvo never raised enough to  supply the home market, so that  large quantities of flaxseed, as well  as linseed oil and other products-of  flaxseed, are imported every year.  Millions of dollars huve been sent out  of Canada for flaxseed and its products and this money might just as well  have been kept in Canada- to circulate  among the farmers of the west. This  is a matter well worth the attention  of newspapers circulating in the Can>  adian West.  "Flaxseed is used for a great variety of purposes and the demand for  it is steadily increasing. The chief  crop of the west must continue to be  whoat, but those farmers who sow a  portion of their" land with flaxseed  will have something to fall back on  when theirXwheat crop is destroyed  or injured by early frost."

Have you ever almost run into  someone on the street, and then  dodged fiom side to side for half a  minute, vainly endeavoring to pass,  while the other person, by some  strange fatality, blocked your every  move by trying to pass you in the  same way ?  Such was the recent experience of  a young man in Portland, Me.

Doubtless every one has" observed  while traveling by train that the trees  'or houses in the distance appear to be  speodlnjg along in the same direction  as the train, while the nearer objects  are fast receding. Many, too, have observed that the top of a level wall  built on a steep incline appears to  slop'o upward In a contrary direction  to the hill Itsell" at nearly the same  angle to tbe apparent level, and some  have curiously regarded the ghostlike  gliding and vanishing of dark shadows while passing a double row ot  fencing, but the 'following are not so  commonly remarked:  .  One might stand for several minutes  watching the revolutions of the cup3  of an anemometer���������for measuring the  velocity of the wind���������and still be puzzled as to the real way they are turning round. Gaze up at them when  there is an uncertain breeze blowing.  They revolve rapidly, and you are perhaps perplexed as to their direction.  As the wind subsides you would expect  to find it easier to tel' the direction by  the slower revolution; but, as a matter  of fact, the difficulty is increased.  With the varying speed your first impression Is that such and such Is the  direction. A moment later you reverse  that idea, and the longer you gaze tho  more It seems as if they are spinning  round erratically in every possible direction, whereas, of course, they can  only turn one way.

He found a policeman.  Oi" late Toronto has become so good  that the "restaurant keepers are fined if  ihey allow meals to be carried out of  their places on Sunday.  Undkr the new regime we notice a  decided improvement in the Nelson  News. Money is a great power in the  production of newspapers.  There is fine fraternal feeling in Grand  Forks for we notice that the Sun calls  the Nelson News correspondent "Our  estaemed fellow prevaricator."  The dark clbucl that hangs over the  red metal market is the great production  of copper that may come shortly from  big coucentrating properties in Nevada.  In some parts of Canada men are fined  or imprisoned if they work or play upon  Sunday. Some men'are also imprisoned  because they do not work upon the other  davs of the.week.

The first case before the court was  that of Frank Ccddio, charged with  murder by blowing up the. hotel at Niagara year ago last November, in [which  Louise King lost her life. The following 'petit jury was drawn to try the  case: Kenneth McKenzie (foreman),  M. MeLeod, II. McGillivray, E Collier,  P.T. McCallum, II. A. Sheads, W. J.  Harrison, J. Docksteader, F. Mosher,  E. Spraggett, E Pope, L. Mader*.  W. J.-Bowser, attorney-general, conducted the case for the crown, and W.  P. Dockerell of Kossland acted in defense of tlie prisoner.  The trial of Ceddio lasted a day,  many Italian and other witnesses being  examined, among them two from Salt  Lake City, and Mrs. King, mother of  the murdered girl. -It took the jury an  hour to find the prisoner guilty. He  was sentenced to be hanged at Kamloops on July 31st.. Tho prisoner had  nothing to say and took his sentence  with apparent indifference. Hedid not  appear to have a friend at court even  amongst his own countrymen.  The case otBowen vs. Yale Columbia  Lumber Co. was settled out of court.  Tlie 'plaintiff got $1,000, each paying  their own costs.  Say the right thing at the right  time and some fool will  envy you.

But when he covered a newspaper with a heavy cloth  and road tlie print through it, she  grew a little nervous. He then  doubled the cloth and again read  the letters accurately. This wais  more than she could stand, and  rising in her seat, she said: ."T'm  goin' home}" This aint no place for  a lady in a thin calico dress."
