"Thank   you   just   as  much.   Only I happened to know Lady  Ellerslie   well   many   years   ago   and  should   have   been   glad   to   see   her  home."  "Indeed." said the gamekeeper respectfully. "You might have a chance  next week then. Lady Ellerslie's son  Is giving a garden party on Thursday,  and if you send a card to Lord Ellerslie 1 have no doubt that he will be  glad to have an Invitation sent you."  "Thank you; perhaps we may do so,"  said Mrs. Lincoln. "Will you be good  enough to call my carriage now?"  As bo turned and beckoned the  coachman Ethel Lincoln sighed.  "How beautiful it all is!" she exclaimed. 'Tteally I could marry Ellerslie just to live here." The gamekeeper, his face unmoved, stepped  forward.  "May I help you in, madam?" he  asked decorously.  Mrs. Lincoln, slipping her fingers into the tiny gold purse swinging at her  wrist, pulled  forth a coin and.  with- j  hoped lo see you again. But when you  spoke of my mother 1 began to think  who you might be. and of course the  name on ilie locket settled It. Indeed,  I was Innocent."  Mrs. Lincoln laughed.  "Certainly you took the tip badly  enough."  "But I still have It." he asserted,  "and always shall, if only as being  the first money I ever earned."  As host Ellerslie's duties kept him  busy through I lie afternoon, and it was  not until ihe long shadows lay wide  across the lawn that he was able to  follow tlie direction In which his eyes  had often strayed and Join Ethel where  she stood under a huge Japanese umbrella.  "I have been talking to chaperons  until 1 am exhausted." be urged. "Do  take pity on me and let us make an  escape. Oh. no. it is uot yet late," ns  the girl hesitated. "And there is the  view of the mere that you have not  yet seen," he added mischievously.  Ethel smiled and let him take her  parasol from one of the group of men  about her.        ,  "Don't keep her too loug, Ellerslie,"  said one iu rather an injured tone.  Ellerslie shook his head. "1 cannot  promise. Miss Lincoln and I have  much to discuss." be laughed.  But as they paused ou a little rustic  bridge commanding a view of lake aud  woods stretching away to the red suu-  j lit sky Ellerslie seemed to have suddenly lost his desire to talk.- When  finally he turned to her there was an  odd little glint in his eye.  "Well." he said, "do you like It?"  waving his band toward the picturesque reach of wood and water.  "Indeed I do," she answered earnestly.   The glint in his eye deepened.  "Then you are prepared to keep your  word?"  "My word?" said the girl, startled.  "That you  would vuiarry Ellerslie to  get ail this."    He pulled a coin  from  his pocket aud gazed meditatively at it.  "This precious coiu-1 fell in love with  a   girl   when   it   was   given   to   me.  Wasu't it an odd thing to do?  But I  am so delighted with the fact that I  am going to have this bit of gold made  into the best thing 1 know of, aud that  is a wedding ring.    Shall I?   Do you  think she might wear It in time?"  Although he spoke Jestingly, there  was au undercurrent of seriousness in  his tone which the girl was quick to  catch. For a moment a new, strange  shyness kept her silent; then she spoke.  "Of course 1 am hardly competent to  advise on such a subject," she began  demurely, "but," with a swift upward  glance that suggested bewildering possibilities, "there could certainly be no  harm iu having the ring made."  It was several years before Ellerslie  admitted to his wife that as Mrs. Lincoln had dropped him the coin she bad  dropped the locket and that he, willfully and deliberately, had concealed It.  Q*o his astonishment, however, Lady  Ellerslie only laughed.  Men   Who   Take   Holidays  and   Men  Who  Mako Them.  Holiday-makers are not so common  as one is apt, at first blush, to imagine; for when we mention "holiday-  makers," it.is not "holiday-makers"  we really mean, but "holiday-takers."  The men who take holidays, and the  men who make them are of a very  different order. ��������� The former spend the  greater portion of their lives endeavoring to make a pleasure of business,  while the latter succeed in- making a  business of pleasure. Vacations are  their vocation.  King among the small company of  true holiday-makers is Sir Henry  Luna, whose inclusion among the  neiy knights has caused such general  satisfaction. For almost twenty years  "Dr. Luim's Tours" have been a feature of every holiday season, and he  has made holidays in the most literal  sense of the words.'  "Curiously enough," Sir Henry told  an interviewer recently, "1 have, during the past few years, entirely re-,  versed the principle on which I worked in the days of the Grindelwald  Conferences, which were tho beginning of my tourist campaigns. My  object then was to bring together people who differed. My object now is  to bring together people who agree.  "But, no matter how careful one  may be, on very rare occasions one  is bound to find a gooseberry in the  strawberry baske't, cr a strawberry  among the gooseberries. I recall one  gentleman who got mixed in with a  party of savants with whom I went  on a cruise to the Isles of Greece.  Naturally, the talk on this particular  expedition was somewhat learned,  while tho places we visited were mainly of academic interest. He stood it  bravely for s.oine days, without a inur-,  niur of complaint, till 1 came upon  him standing on the steps of the Museum at Olympia, passing a handker-  chief across a frenzied brow.  "He regarded me reproachfully for  a minute. " 'Phew !' ho exclaimed at  length. 'It'll take me three good weeks  at  Blackpool  to get over this!'  "Quite an unexpected incident happened at the time of Queen Victoria's  Diamond Jubilee. I had chartered  three steamers���������the Argonaut, Bothnia, and Koh-i-Noor ��������� for the great  Naval Pageant, but on the Monday  before the eventful Saturday discov-  eied that only a handful of people  had applied for places on the last-  named vessel. Almost at the same  moment I learned that Lord Goschen  was encountering great trouble in ar-  ianging for the presence at the review of all the Colonial troops. I at  once telegraphed, saying:  " 'Can put at your disposal steamer  and two special trains for the con  veyance of Colonial troops.'  "Lord Goschen was as glad to avail  himself of my offer as I was to save  what looked like being a serious financial loss. In this way I helped tho  Government, and the Government  helped me."  One of the most remarkable examples of Sir Henry's enterprise is the  manner in which he has opened up  the different valleys in Switzerland  during the winter season. A few years  ago these valleys were all closed in  winter, and no ski-runner or tobogganer disturbed their virgin snows or  skated on their lakes. To-day, Sir  Henry controls no less than 3,000 beds  in tiiese Alpine valleys, which are  mainly occupied each winter by members of thc famous Public Schools Alpine Sports Club, of which the headmaster of Eton is president, and Earl  Roberts and the Earl of Lytton are  vice-presidents.  WHEN KINGS WANT CASH.  The Reason Why.  A wilfully literal answer Is sometimes the most Impudent kind of retort. Of such nature was the reply  made by General Early and quoted below from "Tbe Confederate Scrap  Book." a collection of cuttings gathered by Mrs.-Lizzie Cary Daniels and  published after the civil war.

"I suppose not," agreed Ethel, not,  however, without a secret twinge of  disappointment.  But the next day. on reluming from  their drive, the innkeeper met them.

No advertisement is more valuable  to a British tradesman than the  royal warrant which allow? him to  place the royal arms over his place of  business and describe himself as "purveyor by appointment to His Majesty  the King."  Each tradesman who has the royal  custom must send in his bill at the  end of the month. It is compared  with his ledger account kept at Marlborough House and if correct is paid  in the first week of the month. No  discount is asked on any of the royal  accounts, a tradesman who receives  the royal custom is informed that he  must supply goods at the lowest reasonable prices and there is never any  attempt at bargaining by the official  of the royal household. If a tradesman is thought to be making extortionate charges he simply loses the  royal custom.  Coal is supplied to Marlborough  House by contract, the contracts being made for three years and the contractors paid in equal half yearly pay-  ments. Window cleaning, carpet cleaning and chimney sweeping are all  done by contract and the glass frames  of large pictures are also kept clean  by  contract.  Servants' wages are paid monthly,  the upper servants being paid by  chock sent to each from the Treasurer's Department. The King's account.-*  for clothes, cigars, theatres, newspapers, books and other personal articles are sent to liis secretary, not the  Treasurer, and are also paid monthly,  King George always like to see these  accounts before they are paid and it  was once a rule that they should bo  initialled by him before they were discharged.  The Uncivil Side of Royal Civil Lists  ���������"Trusting" King William.  "It is necessary that renewed provision shall bo made for the Civil  List" was King George's constitutional message to Parliament, -.lit was not  sv$r thus. Some of, our earlier mon-  archs satisfied their financial needs  by simply appropriating all the money  they could lay hands on!  Even then they were hard up. Once,  the "Merry Monarch" "had no nan-  kerchers and but three bands to his  neck," so Pepys says. The royal debt  to the linen-draper was some $25,000  at that moment. Moreover���������Pepys  again���������"several of the menial servants  of the court lack bread; they have not  received a farthing, wages since the  King's coming in." And this, notwithstanding that King Charles' annual income at that time was over a  million sterling.  Of course, the financial expedient*  of King Charles I. cost him his head,  and made history. A favorite little  plan of the "martyr'd monarch" was  to collect a "voluntary" loan. On  line occasion, in Cornwall, the freeholders were called together to contribute, but many of them refused to  pay anything. One Cornishman has  loft this record: "Some with great  words were drawn to it. I was like  to be complimented out of my money  but, knowing with whom I had to  dual, I held my hands fast in my pockets when I talked with them."  William III. and Mary were granted an income of 14,500,000. Hitherto,  the royal .revenues had been" granted  to the monarch for life, but Parliament was becoming wary, and only  gave William hia income for four  years, whereas he exclaimed: "The  gentlemen of England trusted King  James, who was an enemy of their religion and laws, but they will not  trust me, by whom their religion and.  laws have been preserved."  This seemed a most reasonable protest, and the result was that Parliament resolved henceforth to make the  vote of supplies an annual one!'  George III., in particular, was a  monarch who found it difficult to  make both ends meet. Indeed, he  found it impossible, and tho state paid  nearly seventeen million five hundred  dollars' worth of debts for hini.  On one occasion alone, the country  paid debts to the tune of $3,000,000,  $200,000 of that amount being a farrier's bill for horse medicine and shoe  ing. On another, the King and his  brother raised the wind by the issue  of bonds secured upon the revenues of  the Duchy of Cornwall. These bonds  were taken up chiefly in France and  Holland, and were repudiated by the  royal brothers upon the outbreak of  the French Revolution on the ground  that they had probably fallen into  other hands than those of the original  subscribers. In vain the holders protested. The royal brothers appealed  to the Prime Minister to pack these  troublesome creditors back to their  native country, and twenty-six bondholders were expelled from England  accordingly.  But it is certain that a-great deal  of this monarch's money went to  maintain useless sinecures. The Cofferer of the Household received $10.-  000 a year for nothing. There was also  a Clerk and a Groom of the Bakehouse, a Gentleman of the Buttery,  a Groom of the Pastry, and even a  Child of the Pastry���������all subordinates  in the Loid Steward's department.  Another royal spender was George  IV., provided that it was not his own  money that was being spent. He himself always had money. When he died  they found $50,000 in his boxes, and  money scattered about everywhere,  including a good deal of gold. They  were about 500 pocket-books of different dates, and in every one money���������  guineas, one-pound notes, one, two, or  three in each, mingled with a prodigious quantity of women's" hair and  gloves and notes and letters.  With the accession of William IV.  things were' put on a sensible basis  He surrendered all the crown lands  in exchange for an income of $2,550.  000 a year.

CHASE'S  NERVE  FOOD  It is said that the average man or  woman who reaches seventy years of  age has had two years of sickness or  ten days for each year.  To-day medical experts are studying  how to avoid this and the general  opinion seems to be that every effort  should be used to keep the blood rich,  red and healthy by using such treatment as Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.  There are always plenty''of indications to warn you when the blood is  getting weak and watery and the  nerves exhausted.  You are easily tired, both mentally  and bodily, you fell down-hearted and  discouraged, digestion fails you, you-  have headaches and become irritable  and easily annoyed.  In this condition you easily contract  colds, pnucmonia or fever of some  kind and are not able to throw them  off as you would if the blood were rich  and the body in vigorous health. |  The food you eat does not build 3rou  up and it is therefore necessary for  you to look to such a prpparation as  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food to enrich the  blood.  Mrs. S. Storey, 19 Maitland street,  Halifax, N. S., states: ^'My whole a  nervous .system was run down, I was  troubled with wakefulness during the  night and frequently suffered with '  neuralgic .pains in my head. Nothing  that I took seemed to be of much benefit to me until I began the use of Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food and under this  treatment my health at once began to -  improve. By continuing the use of  the Nerve Food I gradually grew  stronger until at. the present time I  can now say that I am quite well  again. I now enjoy refreshing sleep  and thc pains in my head have entirely disappeared.  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food has proven  an enormous benefit, because of its  power to form rich, red blood and  thereby to overcome weakness and  disease. 50 cts. a box, all.dealers or ���������  Kdmanson.

Shine, the well-known English  comedian, was awarded $5,000 damages for falling over a wooden batten, and his accident came some time  after the fatal stabbing of a man on  a London stage, the shooting dead of  another, the fall of a jockey in a mimic horse-race, which resulted in the  unfortunate man losing his life, and  the fatal fall of a slack-wire walker.  Probably the most extraordinary recent fatality was that in which a super \  dressed as a savage fell through a  hole in the scenic mountain. The hole  was so smaU that a man's body could  only just be" got through it, and the  mystery was deepened by the fact that  the super was running at the moment  he fell.

(    LACK OF PURE BLOOD  The Cause of Most Illness-  The Cure, Enrich the  Blood Supply.  Any illness caused by lack of blood  ' will be benefited and cured by a  course of treatment with Dr. Wil-  lanis* Pink Pills. These Pills increase the red matter in the blood  and enable it to carry to every organ  and tissue an increased supply of  oxygen, the great supporter of all  organic life. This has been proved  by cures in thousands of cases not  only in Canada but in all parts of  the world. More people to-day owe  health and happiness to Dr. Williams' Pink Pilis than to any other  medicine. One of these is Mr. James  Stair,   of  Galahad,  Alta.,   who  says:  - "A few years ago 1 became ill and  Very weak. Some days I would have  a hot dry fever and on others would  be bathed in a cold sweat. 1 grew  weaker and weaker until I could do  no kind of work and was finally confined to my bed. I tried several doctors-, who cost me considerable  money, but did me no good, as I  was still getting weaker and weaker.  I asked the last doctor who attended  me' to tell me frankly if he could  cure me, and he told me my case was  so complicated that he did not think  he could help mc. I told him I had  heard   a  great   deal   about   Dr.   Wil-  - liams' Pink Pills and asked if he  thought they would help me. His  reply was: "Weill they won't do you  any harm and they may help you."  1 sent for a half dozen boxes at once  and began taking them. After taking three boxes there was no doubt  they were helping me, and I continued using them for some time longer,  with the result that ,1 am now as  strong and hearty and can do as good  a day's work as aTiy man in- my  neighborhood."

Tho last of the series of disastrous  fires which have pursued the career'  of The Montreal Herald is responsible  for some interesting reminiscences  by Mr. Lutton, the veteran Quebec  journalist, who for years has contributed a" weekly page of. comment to  that model among weekly newspapers,  The News and Eastern Townships Advocate of St. Johns, Quebec. Particularly interesting are Mr. Lutton'a  references to Hon. Peter Mitchell,  M.P., one.of The Herald's famous editors, who used to.be described as "The  Third Party." Of Mitchell the writer  says:  ' "Upon,the scene, then, entered the  late 'Sir' Peter Mitchell, on Beaver  Hall Hill, where The Herald, phoenixlike, rose from its ashes.  "Now, if ever the true Bohemian  walked this planet, he did so in the  person of the 'Hon.- Peter.'  "When one thinks of the spaciousness of the man; his charming sense  of irresponsibility; his happy indifference to overdue notes; his child-like  insistence upon joy as his inheritance;  his profound' and careless ignorance  of the duties of management; his ingenuous delight in the notion that he  was moulding public opinion while he  was, in reality, playing the dashing  role_ of boulevardier; his slap-dash  editorials which warned the wicked  Conservatives at Ottawa that 'we had  our eye on them,' after the manner  of the 'Skibereen Eagle,' which warned the Emperor of Eussia 'that it was  watching his conduct,' or fulsoniely  bespattered what the "Hon. Peter"  called the 'McShane-Mercier administration,' then reigning at Quebec  (save the mark!)���������when one thinks of  these aspects and attitudes, he can'!  only regret the passing of so gay, so '  delightful a figure, for which a,more  strenuous generation is not inclined  to find a place.  "To see 'Sir Peter' sallying forth,  say, in the winter, enveloped from  head to foot in his seal coat; to note  him the cynosure of the general regard at the St. Lawrence Hall, where  the local politicians used to congregate; to observe the entire delight of  the large creature in life, in the passing moment, in clinking his glass,'  smoking his cigar,, throwing off cor-,  ruscations of wit in the careless moment, while the paper came out or  did "not come out���������was to observe as  charming and inconsequent a creature .' as ever made for the general  optimism and gayety."

There is one little denizen of the  marsh world that makes his slow way  quite unmolested amongst the prowling food-seekers of the drowned lands.  Science has fastened a long Latin  name to this fearless little chap, but  the barefoot, freckled boy calls him  "mud-turtle."  He is found along the causeway-*  and waterways of the warm, dark water and muck bottoms. At the slightest" sound he pitches forward and  hides himself with lightning-like contortions in the friendly water weeds  and, if you stand quietly by and  watch,- you will, ere long, see him  swim to the surface, protude his little  snake-like head on its leathery, wrinkled neck and watch you from bright,  yellow-rimmed eyes.  He is a curious, good-natured, even  a friendly little creature.  His shell house,'which he carries on  his back, is beautifully marked with  varying shades of grey and brown,  slashed with flecks of deep vermilion.  Should hungry mink or gliding  marsh snake appear, he has simply  to draw in his head, legs and short,  spiky-like tail and be immune from  danger. That shell, with its sharp,  corrugated edges, makes the turtle too  indigestible a meal for hungry worn-  per, mink or marsh-coon to relish.  And so the harmless little land-  turtle, who is first-cousin to the  ferocious' snapping turtle, commonly  called "moss back" by the boy of the  freckles, lives out his days. He grows  very slowly and outlives almost any  other denizen of the marsh or water.  Through the long summer days he  suns himself on bog or log and when  the cold weather comes he burrows  deep in the muck and sleeps out the  long winter.  There Were Other Reasons  At the Lawyers club the conversation turned on the rebukes that the  judges have sometimes administered  to lawyers.   Mai tin W. Littleton s.iid:  "You know that some trial judges-  fare 11s badly' at tho hands of lawyers  as lawyers fare at the hands of trial  judges. Down in Texas there was a  trial judge we will call Jones in  a county we will call Mexico, because  neitlier of those names is at all like  tho original. Tlie supreme court reviewing ii decision of Judge Jones  paid him a compliment in the following words:  "This case," said the learned upper  counsel, "is an appeal from a decision  made by Judge Jones, but there are  other reasons why the official should  be sustained."  "The court then went on and gave  the other reasons," but Judge Jones  wounded in his amour proper, never  forgot that first sentence." ��������� New  York Herald.

Lake Erie, in that somewhat inaccessible region adjacent to Selkirk in  Haldiinand County, comes upon some  objects sat out in the lake that-'suggest defences against some future' foreign invader. One's mind turns at  once to Fenian raids and perhaps to  a query whether defences of this sort  are not contrary to the provisions of  the Rush-Bagot treaty. The apparent  defences are concrete arrangements  with recesses on the land side and a  circular front sloping toward the top,  facing Uncle Sam's country. A series  of pipes and valves adds to the mystery.  Inquiry, however, shows , that the  "round towers" are no more nor less  than the covers of natural gas wells  sunk in Lake Erie to secure the precious fuel and lighting material for  large Canadian cities and towns many  miles away. The fields hereabouts are  studded with wells from which the  farmers often reap large rentals, but  the ' four competing, companies*��������� were  not content with land operations and  last winter began boring under Lake  Erie. They met with,.the same success as on land, and at a depth of  about 800 feet secured a good flow,  though naturally varying in different  wells.  The drilling" operations for tho  wells farthest in the lake were carried on during the winter, with the  apparatus standing on the ice, for  Lake Erie, being shallow, is frozen for  some distance out during the cold  weather. The workmen found it a  cold job, for the winds that swept  over the ice fields did not suggest  proximity to any banana belt. Since  then the operations have been extended and several lake wells are now being sunk. The gas companies believe  they will find oil by drilling still  deeper, and later on it is proposed to  make the. experiment. The proximity  of the Pennsylvania oil fields just  across the lake is the basis for this  belief.  In the vicinity of this gas supply  most of the farmhouses are lighted  from the wells, though the great bulk  of the gas is piped to Hamilton,  Brantford, Paris and Gait. The roadsides are seamed with the pipes of the  competing companies, until one would  think he were in a city too young to  perfect its public services. Most of  the houses are old and weather-stained from a half century's storms from  tumultuous Lake Erie. Gas lighting  and fuel, pianos and top buggies now  signal the arrival of a happier day.  The upper works of wells appear  in the grain fields every few yards,  and the farmer as he circles around  them with his binder is only solaced  by tlie large rental which he derives  from a good producing well. One  man indeed has an automobile for  himself and for each of his two sons,  the fruits, it is said, of the natural  gas wells on his property.

The lawyer smiled in a superior  way. "Surely," he said, "your honor  would not have it believed that this  court is on the intellectual plane of  that jury."  or not matters little for the purposes  of this story. Anyway the general-  manager became exasperated with the  C.P.R. and wrote a caustic letter to  Mr. McNicholl in which he said if  the bill were not paid instanter he  would instruct every branch of hia  bank not to use the C.P.R. passenger  trains when avoidable, not to use  C.P.R. .telegraphs, nor C.P.R. express  lines, nor anything with a C.P.R. label on it.  "Mr. McNicholl's reply was brief  and to the point. He said if the general-manager carried out his threat he  would instruct every employe of the  C.P.R. to refuse any bank bills bearing the label of that particular bank.  When tlie general-manager got that  letter he concluded he had played the  wrong card with Mr. McNicholl. What  would happen to any bank whose bills  were systematically refused by tho  C.P.R. can be easily imagined. Anyway the bank never boycotted the  C.P.R."

Here  ice-rivers drain lakes of snow up iu  the clouds and tumble in a wild contusion of seracs over rocky beds-walled in  by mountain sides;  waterfalls  leap down rock precipices;   cascades  thunder from the heights; rock tails  *ut wide gashes in the virgin forest;  shining, jewel-like lakes of exquisite  -.hades of blue and green reflect their  surroundings   so  perfectly  that  it  is  difficult to know where land ends and  water begins.- In the primeval forests  of mighty conifers there are spreading  boughs, "festooned    with    beards   of  moss, and the foliage is so dense that  it creates a dim religious shade illuminated only by .the slants of sunlight  that find a way through the openings.  These forests are filled with wonderful   things;   prickly   shrubs   six   feet  high, that wound the flesh with sharp  spines; rare flowering plants that delight tlie eye with beautiful blossoms,  and bushes loaded with luscious huckleberries  and  full  ripe  raspberries.

In a certain New Brunswick county, where the councillors served without anv sessional indemnity whatever,  Councillor C. was defeated in a con-  V-st in the parish of X., and at the  next session to which he was elected  the councillors voted themselves $5  per day.  Councillor C. supported tho resolution. He believed, he said, that his  services were worth $5 per day to  the electors of the parish of X. and  that if he had not thought so he would  not have offered his services.  "Mr. Warden," said a member who  was optwsing the increase, "there is  nothinp 'in that. Three years ago,  Councillor C. offered his services to  the electors of X. for nothing, and  they  rejected him."  Wiser After All.  Tho late John R.

Cameron's rejoinder was  H&w    a    Picturesque- Spot    in    tho  Thousand Islands Was Named.   '  Few of the visitors to the Thousand Islands realize how many historical associations this region possesses. It has always been the boundary line between nations, and every  great war in the history of America  has seen some large or small tragedy  enacted near its waters.  In the year 1760 two armed vessels, the Onondaga and the Mohawk,  with 1,000 men on board, under the  command of Gen. Jeffrey (Lord Amherst), set out from- Oswego, N.Y.,  intent on capturing Montreal.  Just as the expedition was entering the St. Lawrence a lookout on  the Onondaga saw a bateau filled  with soldiers putting out from an  island arid heading down the river.  Judging at once that they were  French scouts, the two invading  ships gave chase, hoping to capture  the  bateau.  After' going several miles the  bateau suddenly veered, at a point  where three hills extend into the  river, and ran down a narrow channel between a large island and several smaller ones. It then passed out  into a large bay, beyond which could -  be seen another and a larger channel  extending among the islands.. Knowing that the channels between these  islands are usually very deep the  Onondaga continued the pursuit.  When in the middle of the channel  the vessel was suddenly attacked  from all sides by the Indians and  French hidden on the surrounding  islands. The decks /were swept with  musketry and arrows. The guns were  trained on. the islands, and the attacking party was 'soon forced to  escape in canoes. Coxswain Terry  and his crew were ordered to lower  a boat and to bear a message to the  captain of the Mohawk, telling him  to turn back into the main channel.  Another boat was then lowered to  seek ont a passageway and, a deep  channel being found, thc Onondaga  dropped down stream * below the  thickest group of islands and awaited  the return of Terry and his crew. As  they did not return Ensign Barry was  -ordered to lower the cutter and  search for them. He returned after  some hours, having found no trace  of the boat. He had been bewildered by the intricate channels and  numerous islands and had not been  able to find the channel through  which the Onondaga passed. It was  thought probable that Terry and his  crew had boarded the Mohawk, but  the officers of that vessel reported  that the message had been delivered  and that the boat had started to return to the Onondaga. The coxswain and his crew were never heard  from., and were undoubtedly captured  or killed. Ensign Barry named the  scene of the fight the Lost Channel,  which name it has since borne.  J.  has  au-  Art Treasures  In Fredericton,  That    very    keen     gentleman,  Purves   Carter,   English   artist,  sprung  another sensation.    Last  tumn, it will be remembered, he rummaged through  an old lumber room  at Laval  University,   and   told   the  academicians   that  .their . storehouse  was the greatest art gallery in Canada, alleging that   it contained,   for  instance, Ruben's Fruit Garland, also  a Gainsborough, a Salvator Rosa, and  a Poussin.   While a great many people agreed   with   Mr.   Carter,   some  thought that clever copies had bam-  foozled him.   In fact, the Laval Collection is a mystery yet; no one has  been  able to quite  decide as to the  individual merits of the two million  dollars' worth of art treasures in the  quaint Quebec  College.    Mr.  Purves  Carter has given it up, though   not  his hobby of digging up rare pictures.  He has migrated elsewhere, lately to  New Brunswick.   The other day   he  journeyed   to   Fredericton.     In   the  Council Chamber of the Government  building, four courtly figures have for  years    looked   down    benignly   from  their gilt frames. Who they are every  high-school    ooy    can    tell:      King  George of   Tea  Party   fame,   Queen  Charlotte, Glenig, Scottish earl, and  His Excellency, the Earl of Sheffield.  As to   who   painted   these   pictures,  well, no one in Fredericton has been  able to recollect.  Connoisseur Purves Carter has  come out with his explanation. Arriving from Boston in St. John the  ���������other night, he said that the paintings of King George III. and Queen  Charlotte were no less than the work  of Sir Joshua Reynolds; that the  Glenig one was done by Graham,  famous Scottish artist, and that John  Hoppner, R.A., was responsible for  the portrait of the Earl of Sheffield.  Took the Wrong Cue.  When anyone shakes hands with the  Premier, says The Toronto Mail and  Empire correspondent who has accompanied Sir Wilfrid Laurier to the  West, he at once enquires the name  and then makes some remark or comment designed to please the voter or  his wife. If the name is Mrs. Jones,  he insists that it must be Miss Jones,  and if the nationality of the speaker  is betrayed by the name that fact is  seized upon "to advantage, but now  and then the most wily politician  makes a mistake.
