Purse events, running stakes  and relay races, entries for which  closed Sept. 1st, all filled well for  the Spokane Interstate Fair, Oct.  3 to 9 next. Manager R. H. Cos-  grove, who has just returned from  Butte, where he made final arrangements with owners participating in  Butte's big summer meeting,-says  the Interstate Fair is assured of at  least 100 horses now racing at  Anaconda, Great Falls and Helena.

Morris, who, at 7S years of age," is  the oldest horseman now actively  in the racing game. In 1888 he  sold Sir Dixon for 840,000, probably tbe highest price ever paid for  a running horse. He was following the ponies as early as 1864  when he -journeyed leisurely  through Spokane on the hurricane  deck of a prairie schooner. Some  of Morris' horses which will be  Been at Spokane are Brighton and  Harlem,Maid, both of which were  in money often at the Montana  meetings.  Jim's Remarks.  - The pioneers of the Kettle river  will banquet in Greenwood this  evening. Like the pioneer prospectors of every camp in the west,  tho**e of the Kettle river are fast  disappearing over the last divide.  It is only a few years ago that the  prospector added to his.outfit a  padlock and key. Twenty years  ago a padlock on a' cabia was an  unusual eight in the interior of B.  C, so unusual that the owner of  the locked cabin- was looked upon  with suspicion.. Now, the man  with the unlocked cabin is laughed  at as a fool. The old timers were  honest, becanse only the honest  survived. The thieves were all  either hanged or shot. Every  great mining camp in the early  days frequently tnadei examples of  those who wouldn't be straight, so  in time only the honest were left.  In the Kettle river country locks  came in witu tbe construction of  the Columbia and Western railway  and the first "dress" ball held iu  Greenwood.���������Slocan Record.

In a subsequent interview  with   a   Miner-  representative  Mr.   Sharp paid he  was astonished  at, what   he  saw  here.    In his conscientious opinion  it was a splendid property.   ��������� With  twenty year's metaliferous experience and as a mining engineer  up  and down the whole of British Columbia he  could   confidently, say  that Rosslaud was tho best camp of  %ny, but somehow or other capitalists had lost sight of it.     The Progressive Association   was Working  Uong right lines iu  boosting the  camp and all one had  to say was  the truth.    The oro at the Blue  Bird was silver oro, just the same  as that at Butte, which ran to copper at depth.    lie had in his hand  a specimen of tho oro which was a  ���������uiperb  piece of valuable ore.    He  had also inspected the Mayflower1  which was another excellent proposition  and   ho' could confidently  recommend capitalists to turn their  attention to the camp where there  were abundant   opportunities   for  successful investment. ���������'KoBetoud  Miner.  \imaumuLmMmwMMi  mmmnmamxttm THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,   BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Doris was slnghjg as she came flying  ���������Sown the wide ..stairway and out Into  the warm brilliancy'.of the young day,  for It was .midsummer,... the'.rime of  roses,; of fragrance, of romance.  And Doris seemed the veritable spirit of It all-at least so thought the  young fellow watching her from his  seat under the great elm. But It was  not till she was quite close to him that  "she was aware of his presence. The  gay little chanson she had been lilting  censed, and Ihe pretty, startled color  deepened In lit;- ������oft checks.  "lion Jour!" she cried blithely and  paused* In ber A talari'a like night.  "Mercy! What 'a morning to be poring over a book! Why, instead you  should"���������  "1 know!" He had risen nnd was  towering before her, straight and  stately, a. .nmu with an air that was  more that of a soldier than a student  "You think I should prefer to cultivate  Dame Nature."  There was a quizzical dicker In the  gray, black lushed, black browed  eyes that met hei accusing gaze.  "If you will put down ihut book you  may walk wiih me as far as the abode  of Mrs. Alelinda Parsons*, who is expecting me (Ids 'morning to write her  monthly letter lo her ���������>���������*!) iu the Philippines."  .''The permission is tempting," confessed John Jardine, "but there Is  Freddie"��������� I  "Oh, It jou prefer Freddie's society  to  mine'"    The  little chin with   the /  dimple went up In the nir.  "But I'm paid lo teach your brother,  Miss AYare," he hastened to explain.  "And uot to accompany uie. i. quite  understand." And then. with.much  dignity of demeanor, "Good morning.  Mr. Jardine."  "Good morning." he replied ruefully.  Rut the quizzical  smile  was dancing  again in  bis handsome eyes as Miss  AVare flashed open her parasol, whisk  ed up the skirts of  her embroidered ]  batiste and turned loftily away only to i  pause when she bad takeu a tew steps  and look back over her shoulder with !  eyes full of infinite reproach. !  "There's that dog at Brown's and��������� j  he might bite.   And���������and it's bard to  get over the pasture stile���������alone.

She would have opened her pansy purple eyes very wide Indeed aud  have been honestly amazed had any  one accused her of being heartless.  She would have said that no one  meant to be serious. Anyhow all knew  ���������for it was an open secret���������that she  was not free. Her marriage hud been  arrauged-oh, ages ago���������by parents  nnd lawyers aud solicitors and that  kind of people. It was purely a marriage of convenience.

One morning not long ago, before  the weather got so hot "that the lion  longed for the comfort of tlie tropical  jungle, a party of three made a pilgrimage to the Riverdale Zoo on an  ���������unusual quest.. It iva'a to make observations and photographs upon the  effect which different music as rendered by a phonograph has upon different animals.  There is the usual temptation to offer1 hasty conclusions as to the'character of animals from tlie manner in  which they received different selections, but this will be resisted, while  a few general and safe: conclusions are  hazarded. For example, the noble  lion was''regarded as a fit subject for  .something robust. Ah, we have it.  We will try Caruso on him. With  the first mild notes of the Italian  songster, the lion stood and pawed  tlie floor in the keenest '.animation.  Then as Caruso warmed up the lion  became more attentive, and as the  song grew in volume until the roof  fairly raised, the king of the jungle  turned and stood facing the phonograph horn in a state of wrapt contemplation that was a tribute to the  king of tenors.  ���������; Of all tlie unresponsive inhabitants  of the Zoo, the goats took the prize.  This experiment just put them where  they belong in the scale of culture.  The phonograph man hunted out'a  Sousa inarch which."we felt sure would  be popular'in:goat pastures. But it  had no. effect whatever. Cornet solo?  and other delicacies were tried in  vain, but when 'a resourceful attendant put some grass in the mouth of  tlie horn there was a procession up  the inclined post that did more credit  to the goat stomach than to the goat  brain.  The procession of experimenters  presently, visited the "Scotch deer.  Here, we thought, is an opportunity  to test this cianishness to the utmost.  So out over the Don Flats there pealed Harry Lauder in his best voice,  singing "Stop Yer Tieklin', Jock."  The so-called Scotch deer must have  come from a remote fastness, for  Harry .Lauder'had no charms for him.  and he remained at the far side of  his'peri and would not be comforted.  The llama made, a picturesque effect as he came up to the phonograph, all alertness and curiosity. He  was evidently pleased with 'the cornet solo selected for his diversion.  When we came to the buffalo ��������� wolves  we had real wild things to deal with.  A band selection drove them hither  and thither over the i>en. Then we  remembered the old story of the man  lost in the woods who saved his lift  by soothing the wolves with a violin. So we put in a violin solo by  Mischa Ehrian. The result was that  the wolf stood on his hind legs, threw  his head back and howled.  So the narrative, might go on.  /Ihe  THE BASTILLE.  !"ll"fU"Jl'.ry"'S. !������..<,O,"'0al by pull-"si monkeys jumped Vh^'ufaf-d scolded  his cap down ovet his race,  "Why,' Robert, what have you been  doing?

The Color of His Coat.  Professor Vircbow was almost as famous for his excessive bluutuess of  speech as for bis very remarkable  mental attainments. Often be spoke  so unfeelingly to the students who sat  under bim iu the lecture rooms that  they have been known to leave his  classes and not return. According to  Berlin traditions, one of the professor's  favorite replies to a wrong answer to  one of his questions was:  "Certainly not. Any cook would  know better than that."  On the other hand, be seemed to appreciate the spirit in some of his stu-  deuts which prompted them to answer  111 in back in very much his own tone.  Once when be was presiding In a very  old and faded suit of clothes he turned  suddenly upon a seemingly bashful  mau sitting near bim and asked:  "Do your eyes tell you the truth?

The figures show that in the ten  years previous to the Postmaster-General's report for last year, new post-  offices had been established .at the  rale of one for every working-day.  With the tremendous inrush of people into the Canadian West this rate  of extension must be greatly accelerated. Last year, the postoffiees in  the provinces west of the Great Lakes  numbered 2,716, as against G-15 in the  same territory twenty years ago. In  Saskatchewan alone there were, last  year, 861 postoffiees, or almost one-  third more than in the whole of the  West in 1889. The increase has not  been in the West alone, however, but  has been general throughout the Dominion. Ontario last year had 3,G94  postoffiees, as against 3,228 ten years  ago, and 2,971 twenty years ago. That  the increase in j>ostofIices means better facilities for existing population  as well as new facilities for new places  is proven by the fact that Prince Edward. Island, which has fncreased but  little in population, had, last year,  465 postofiices as against 409 in 1899,  and 315 in 1889. For New Brunswick  the figures are 1,397 for 1909 as against  1,180 ten years ago, and 1,085 twenty  years ago. The number of offices in  the Yukon last year was 21.  Sir   William   Butlsr.  Canada remembers Sir William  Butler as the author of "The Great  Lone Land," a book on western Canada before railways and migrations of  people were features of prairie life.  Sir William died recently in the old  country at the age of 72. He was one  of the brilliant roll of soldiers whom  Ireland has given to the Empire's service. Sir William was born in Tip-  erary. and started soldiering nt.the  ago of 20. He served in many parts  of "the world, and saw much active  service, in which he greatly distinguished himself. After four years in  the east, he went in 1870, with the  Red River expedition in western Canada. The years 1873 and 1874 saw  him in Ashanti, and the following  year he went on a special mision to  Bloernfontein. In the Zulu war (1879-  80) he was staff officer at the British  sea base. In 1882 he was in Egypt,  and fought at Kassassin and Tel-el-  Kebir. Two years later he was selected hy Gen. Wolscley to organize  the Nile Expedition for the rescue of  Gordon  and the fact that it was too late was  no fault of his  Rise and the Fall of the Famous State  Prison of France.  The famous French prison known  as lite Hastille was started on April  22, 135G, by order of Charles V. The  Bastille turned out to be an important structure in history, and its fall  on July 15��������� 1789, marked the beginning of the French Involution. It  was originally intended by Charles as  a defense against tlie English. When  it came to be used as a state prison  it was provided with vast bulwarks  and ditches. The Bastille had four  towers of five stories each on each of  its large sides. It was curtly in these  towers and partly in underground cellars that the prisoners were situated.  It. was capable of containing from  seventy to eighty prisoners, a number frequently reached during Uie  reigns of,Louis XIV. and Louis XV.,  the majority of them being persons  of the higher ranks. In its site now  stands thu Column of July, erected in  memory of the patriots of 1789 and  1830.  The name bastille, or bastel, in ancient times was given to any kind of  structure calculated to withstand a  military force, and thus, formerly in  England and on the borders of Scotland, the term bastel house was usually applied to places of strength 'and  fancied security. The French Bastille  was originally called the Bastille St.  Antoine.  Stephen Marcel, provost of the merchants, undertook the erection of Uie  French Bastille. Tlie building was  enlarged in 1369 by Hugh Aubniot,  provost of Paris under Charles V.  He added two towers, which, being  placed opposite to those already existing on each side of the gate, ina.de ol  the Bastille a square fort, witli a tower at each of the four angles.  After the death of Charles V., Aub-  riot, who had many enemies, was  prosecuted for alleged crimes and wa?  condemned 'to.'-perpetual.-.confinement  in the Bastille, of which,-according to"  some historians, he was the first prisoner. After some time he was removed thence to Fort l'Eveque, another  prison, from which he was liberated  in 1381 by the insurrection of tlie  Alaillotins.  After this insurrection, in 1382, tlie  young king, Charles VI., still further  enlarged the Bastille by; adding four  towers to it, each 100 feet high, thus  giving it, instead of the square form  it originally possessed, the shape of  an oblong or parallelogram. To in-  ciease its strength the Bastille was  surrounded by a ditch 25 feet deep  and 120 feet wide. The road which  formerly passed through it was turned to one side.  The Bastille from its commanding  position was closely connected with  important affairs in French history  and was occupied by the Guises in  1588, by Charles IV. in 1584, the Fron-  deurs in 1649 and Conde in 1652.  It was natural, therefore, tiiat the  Bastille should be one of the first objects of attack at the outbreak of the  Revolution. In. July 15, 1798, the  populace of Paris, recruited chiefly  from the Faubourg St. Antoine, "attacked the fortress and stormed it after a half-hearted resistance by the  governor, De Launay, and a handful  of Swiss. The governor and seven of  his men were killed, the archives of  the prison scattered, .and the prisoners, seven jm number, were carried  through the streets and hailed as victims of tyranny and martyrs in the  people's cause. Tlie building itself  was torn down. The anniversary of  the taking of the Bastille is celebrated  every year as the national holiday of  France.

Each year we'  see new breeders entering the field.  Each year the old timers find it harder and harder to take home a bunch  of ribbons, And to a man who has  once been a big winner of ribbons,  it's tough sliding to see tho.novice  break into the winning ranks.  ���������And let me tell you another thing,  the novice who does break into the  .winning camp has a good right to  iiwull up like a pouter pigeon and  strut about just a litfle^anyway. A  fjw years back show herds from Ontario would be sent West to 'clean  'cm up' each year, and they did too  to a largo extent.

In tulk'ng with many of tlie breeders, thoy advise that it was on account of "tin; boy" that they took an  interest in show stock. It was because "Ihe hoy" worked lo shape up  a few animals, because he showed an  i nclinifion to beat out some, of tlie  old-timer1, that the f.ithers put their  stamp of approval to the scheme  rather than disappoint th**'boy.

SOUTH AFRICA'S CHAMPION.  s .   All Round Athlete of the New Domin-  ion Is a Versatile Man.  It must be admitted that the win.  ning of over COO prize-* in the athletic  field by a man who is not'yet twenty-  eight years of age is in itself a wonderful record. When if is mentioned, however, that these prizes have  been won in such a variety of sports  as , long-distance , running, jumping,  wrestling, boxing, cycling, football,  roller-skating, throwing the cricket-  ball and hammer, and putting the  shot, the record becomes even more  astonishing.  Mr.. W. W. J. Ewins, however, the  all-round athlete of South Africa, who  holds this record, and is at present  contemplating a walking tour round  the entire coast of Great Britain,, regards it very lightly. "Nature," he  said to an interviewer recently, "wa3  .very kind in providing me "with a  fine frame and a particularly healthy  body. And being imbued with a spirit of athleticism, what was more natural than that I should have tried  to excel in sport?"  "But, then, Mr. Ewins, a great deal  is due to your own training?"  "That, is quite true; but I seemed  to take to athletics like a duck takes  to water. I specialized to a certain  extent in running and walking, but I  was always very fond of a change,  and that, I suppose, is why I developed certain all-round skill. As a matter of fact, I" could not even remain  true to athletics, for in my early days  I became a jockey and won a good  many races, not only on the flat, but  over the sticks, until increased weight  made mo give it up.  "My most successful seasons in the  athletic field? Well, it is difficult for  me to say. I should think, however,  that my best three years were in  1897, 1808, and 18U3. In'the first year  I was presented with a gold medal  and a gold watch by thejate President Kruger for winning most events  at an athletic gathering, while in  1898 I-ady Hutchinson presented me  with a diamond modal. According  to a little memo book I have, I find  that I" won seven open boxing and  four wrestling competitions, got three  firsts in sculling races, and won three-  road cycling races. I finished up the  year by breaking, my ankle through  giving exhibitions of high jumping on  roller-skates. It was shortly after  this that I gave up jockeying owing to  increase of weight.  "In 1899 I devoted myself entirely i  to athletics, and gave many boxing  .and' wrestling exhibitions, being presented with a gold medal by Lord  Milner, and then I met with another  accident, being foolish enough to try  and loop the loop on a bicycle, the  result being two broken ribs and two  smashed fingers."  At one time Mr. Ewins was champion, cyclist of South Africa, and considerable interest was aroused when,  in 19C2, he started the National  Sporting Club in Johannesburg. He  himself entered all the principal  events; and it was about this time  that hedistinguished himself by winning a forty-five mile race, and came  in third in a sixty-four mile race.  Mr. Ewins was entered for the second Marathon race of 1909. A fortnight previous to the race he was  unfortunately bitten on the leg by a  dog. In spite of this, however, he  was amongst those to finish the race,  although not amongst the first arrivals.  Everybody   now   adrait/r  Zam-Buk best for these.

"It is a case of Hobson's choice,"  is a phrase that is used by many  people without knowing exactly what  it means, says a writer in Strand.  As a matter of fact, this adage has  been handed down to us from the  17th century and. had its origin in  the eccentricities of one Tobias Hob-  son. This worthy was a carrier of  Cambridge, who died in the year 1630.  In addition to his ordinary business  he kept a stable and let out horses  to the students of university. He  made   it   an   unalterable   rule,   how  Every    mother    must    know  how fatal the summer months  are to small children.

Capt, Scott rightly counts  himself leader of the most thoroughly organized expedition in the history  of Polar exploration. Given the man,  the expedition will not only be the  most thoroughly organized but also  the most determined that has ever  set out.  Capt, Robert Falson Scott' is a mail  of' keen sentiment and enormous enthusiasms, but they are hidden below  the surface of a very placid and unconcerned demeanor. The traditions  of the naval service on the one hand  and of the great explorers on the  other inspire him. Clean-shaven, with  a strong -and determined face, tight,  firm lips, and keen but kindly light-  blue eyes, he is just forty-two years  of age, his birthday being "on June  Gth. He was thirty-three when he  first set out towards the South Pole  in the wonderful but loo expensive  and not over-satisfactory Discovery,  in which he made the great expedition which penetrated farthest south  for the time beinc*.  As a good captain he liked the Discovery, despite her .faults, and if sen-  tirient had been -jiveii full opportunity he might have taken her with him  this time. By a curious coincidence  she lies in the docks, and was almost  "lthin hailing distance of the Terra  Nova before she sailed. Tlie Discovery is in.the service of the Hudson  Hay Co, to whom she was sold when  she hail done her work in the Antarctic. But now die commander is  quite in love with his Terra Nova,  which he thinks the best ship, in the  world for her purpose.  The first time he ever saw her he  resented lier appearance. He was out  in the lonely Antarctic then, cut off  from the world. It was on a sunny'  morning in January six years ago,  the Discovery was fast in the ice, and  her'situation, and indeed that of the  whole expedition, was a little serious.  The Government had guessed this,  and had sent this old but carefully  chosen whaling vessel racing through  the Mediterranean and Suez Canal,  tugged along at top speed by cruisers  and more cruisers until, with the  other relief ship, the Morning, she  came up to the edge of the Antarctic  ice pack. Capt. Scott and some of  his companions were discussing after  breakfast their plans for the day,  when suddenly they saw a ship. Then  Wilson exclaimed, "Why, there's another!" and there was .the Terra Nova.  The sight meant safety and home  again, but there were considerations  which made the reflection not completely delightful. The Antarctic has  its claims and -its hold, and the explorer has a very sensitive pride; and  so, before he turned in that night,  Capt. Scott wrote in his diary. "In  spite of the good home news and the  pleasure of .seeing old friends again, I  was happier last night than I am  to-night."  However, he marked the Terra Nova  for her sterling worth, and he paid  $G0,0C0 for her when he deternined  on this new expedition. In the meantime she had gone back to her whaling and he had returned.to the navy  to command battleships and cruisers.  A fair amount of money has now  been spent on her ��������� most carefully  spent���������and she has become a ship  of good looks and some excellent conveniences. She has to accommodate  nearly sixty officers, scientists, and  crew, and with the three years' provisions that she takes with her���������a*U  selected this time with the most exceptional thoroughness and packed in  special cases so that no case is too  heavy for one man to carry���������there is  no room to snare for anyone or anything.

There is nothing wanting.  first visit of Mr. Archibald since his  severe illness last winter, and hi3  many friends in Kingston were delighted to see him on the road. to.  recovery. When asked -as'to how*  the parole system was working, and  as to the number of prisoners who  had been paroled since the inception  of the system in Canada eleven years  ago, Mr. Archibald suidthat he was  ut the present time making out a report for the department, but could  perhaps give approximate figures.  Since the svstem was established in(  1899, he said about 3,100 prisoners'  were released on' parole. Out of that  number-only about 65 had forfeited  their liberty. That i3 a splendid  record, Mr. Archibald said. Nearly  2,000 have won their full liberty and  aro in the enjoyment oi gond citizenship, showing that they .were, not  criminals, but had yielded to temptation in moments of weakness, and  afterwards deeply regretted their  acts and. repented in sackcloth and  ashes. One thousand prisoners are  still reporting. Last year 4G0 prisoners completed their paroles. Of the  3,100 prisoners paroled in eleven  years, 1,800 were from the penitentiaries and 1,300 from the jails and  reformatories.  The number of paroles has been  steadily increasing, but Mr. Archibald thinks that the limit has now  been reached. Last year the paroles  totalled about 578, or about 100  more than' in the .previous year. In  the prisons of Canada Mr. Archibald  said that there wore about one-third  of the prisoners in whom the utmost  confidence could be put if they were  released on parole. There were  probably frcm 15 to 20 per cent, who  would be belter incarcerated for life,  as they were genuine criminals.  One year Mr. Archibald followed up  the prisoners paroled, of whom there  were 300, and found that they were  earning a total of about ,1il20,000.  They had "made good," and were  valuable citizens.

At the first opportunity he saw the  picture, and was so impressed with itN  that he asked his friend, the Duchess  of St. Albans, Jo secure for him nil  introduction to the artist. This she  did, and in a few weeks the gallant  soldier and artist were married.

Hall's Catarrh  Cure, manufactured hy F. J. Cneney  & Co., Toledo, O., contains no in r-  cury, and is taken interna.ly, acting  directly  upjn  tlie  bl.od  and  mucous  Lore of the Wedding-Ring.  In the Isle of Man the wedding-  ring* was formerly used as an instrument of torture. Cyril Davenport, in  his book on "Jewellery," remarks  that there once, existed a custom in  that island "according to which an  unmarried girl who had been offended by a man could bring hfm to trial,  and if he were found guilty she would  be presented with a sword.'a rope, and  a ring. W'ith the sword she might  cut off his head, with the rope she  might hang him, or with the ring  she might marry him. It is said  that the latter punishment was that  invariably inflicted."  The wedding-ring was amifhema to  the early Puritan*:, who regarded per-  . sonal adornment as one of the many  snares of Satan.   In the old English  marriage  service  it   was  the  custom  surface-i   of   the   system.

Those who remember the "hardtack," an adamantine form of biscuit  served to the soldiers in the rebellion  of 1835, will appreciate the force of the  following poem, "Ode to a Hardtack," read by Mr. T. W. Gibson,  Deputy Minister of Mines, at the recent banquet of the Battleford Column. The lines were composed by  Mr. Gibson while on service in the.  rebellion :���������  O relic of the old red sandstone age!  O hardened bit of indurated granite.  ������  Compact   alone   of   water   and   flinty  flour,  Thou mockest me!  Returning   oft   from   picket  or   from  guard,  Or from patrol, with leaden steps and  slow,  With hunger famished and with famine pressed,  I've  fallen upon thee,  rifle-butt and  heel;  With both feet have I jumped upon  thee,  In hopes to separate a morsel I could  eat,  But all in vain!  Hard as the nether millstone, or as  steel,  As  diamond,  or as  boiler  plate  unbreakable,  Thou foil'dst my rage I  In vain I'd gnash my teeth and use  strong words;  I  found  thee still invincible;  No moth corrupt thee can, nor rust  decay.

CHASE'S NERVE FOOD  ��������� Pain is often a blessing in disguise.  For when you suffer you got iu.earnest  about a cure.  Many who are in a really serious  condition from nervous exhaustion do  not realize they are in danger became  they have no pain.  They are weak and easily fatigued,  their digestive system lacks the necessary vigor to digest food, uppetitie  is poor and interest in life seems to  sold and can be sure that every dose  brings you so much nearer to health  and vigor.  Mrs. Edwin Martin, Ayer's Cliff,  Que., writes: "Before I began using  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, I was in a  terrible condition, dizzy spells would  come over mo and I would fall to the  floor. I could not so much as sweep  the floor without fainting. My nervous system was all run down.  "Doctors failed to help me so I  turned to Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. I  soon felt that it was a God-send to  me because I could feel that it was  "No Tips."  Lord Sefton, famous as' a hunter of  big game, was Master of the Horse for  two years. For holding this position  he was entitled to a salary of $12,500,  and also to claim as a "tip" the silver plate used at the Kings table on  Coronation Day. His lordship, however, does not agree with tipping,  and at both his country house in  South Lancashire and his shooting-  box in. the'north the visitor finds the  welcome legend prominently displayed in" nil the bedrooms, "No gratuities are to be given to any of the  servants."

The ring was left there because, as  the Sarum rubric says, "a vein pro-  jfj ceeds thence to the heart." In. the  modern marriage service tho ring is  placed at once. upon the third finger,  the invocation to the Trinity being  understood.

Prince Hiroyasu, who is a commander in the navy, gave conspicuous  proofs of his bravery in the same  campaign, and wns wounded in one  of the sea fights.

I was singing some years ago at  Douglas, in the Isle of Man, in the  hall which is, I believe, the largest  in the United Kingdom, and where  the audience is always an enormous  one, writes Madame Albani in M.A.P.,  describing "My Nicest Compliment."  Just as the concert was* about to begin, a dirty little boy presented himself at the entrance and tendered his  money.  The money-taker looked him over  and said: "But, my boy, we can't let  you 'in^rw'ith that awfully dirty face."  "But I must go in. I have saved  up my halfpennies to hear the beautiful lady, and I must go in," "protested the urchin.  His supplications, however, were of  no avail, and he went away looking  very disconsolate.  In ten-minutes he returned with a  clean face, and tendered his money  again. "V  "Why! what have you done to  yourself!" said the attendant. "Washed myself in the sea," was the answer. The manager was so struck by  his perseverance that he admitted  him free and gave him a program as  well. -'.

I thought  be was a man of many friends at  first, but soon discovered that few  of those who told him their troubles  aud received help���������generally financially ���������knew anything about the  old fellow.  He and I stayed on at the office  one night after every one else had  left, I to finish a "special" and he  to clip unnecessary punjab, smoke  his unterminablepipe, and���������to tell  me his story.  "1 know you think I'm nothing  but a sorry old dog," he said, after  he had manoeuvred for a start,  "but I'd like to make you see that  we don't a'l go down without being  knocked down.  "I fought in the civil war and  was wounded (I got my brevet as  colonel for that) and was shipped  home. Our train was within a few  miles of our town; and my heart  was nearly hammering my ribs  out���������for there was a girl there���������in  the town. She had iny ring and I  a lock of her hair. Well, the train  was wrecked. I escaped, but others  were killed. Her brother���������we  fought side by side���������was pinned  under a mass of rails and ties and  wreckage. The wreckage was on  fire, aifd be was���������alive."  The old man very carefully laid  down his pipe here. He needed to  for his hand was quivering.  "He screamed���������high and piercingly, like a woman���������and begged  us to kill him. It was absolutely  hopeless for us to try aud get the  wreckage off���������in time. And the  (lames���������as if they were planned in  hell���������they were jiiBt keeping off-  just leaving life enough to be agonized by them.  "I  tried to turn away, but it  seemed  to me that "the circle of  blinding fire was around   mo   as  pitilessly and  impelhngly.     And  then he screamed again for death  and  writhed  around  so   that   he  faced me.    His arm was free, with  the mark of tho bullet in the hand  that he'd got at Bull Run, and  he  just stretched it out and said, 'Dan,  we were mates.'  . "I stood like stone one instant  more, looking into the,look, iu his  eves���������that look���������God! then I moved.    It seemed to mo,that I was  stiff and ages slow and that I moved  like a log and was far,  far away,  but they say it was all done before  they knew it wat-i 'to bo done.    I  seized an  axe from   a   wrecker's  hand and sprang upon  a burning  tie and swung the axe���������and  that  ended that look."

Imagine,  therefore, his feelings, when, returning one night after a week's  absence, he became suddenly aware  of a suspicious hump under the  counterpane of his bed.  Gingerly he ventured forth a  hand. Great Scott! it was warm;  and, yes, he could have sworn it  moved.  A cat, sure enough. He seized  a handy baseball bat, and with the  air of a rural amateur about to  make a home run, whirled his  weapon aloft for a mighty stroke,  and struck.
