He is slowly  dying of a malignant cancer of the  face and his friends are taking him  to his home at Eddy. Wash. The  mino'ho found has turned out  nearly two million dollars in jgold.  Nearly all the shacks in Anaconda arc rented to men who work  in the smelter. Many of these  men are only a short time in the  country from Sweden, Austria,  Italy, Quebec and other countries.

There is a chanco in the Boundary to do more business. The mint  at Ottawa requiieH large quanti-  lies of electiolytic copper for milking cents, but hoik* is made in  Canada. Then* is big money in  making refined copper and some  company should start a smelter for  that purpose in or near Greenwood. The mint expects to buy  its gold in Ii.

When complete! he new  furnace, together with the one  now in operation, will make the  capacity t>r tho smelter 1100 tons  of ore a day. AV. 0. Thomas, the  popular manager of the. smelter,  states that as the likelihood of obtaining material rapidly is much  better than it was a few months  ago, tin* work of tearing out the  old furnaces and building the new  one will be completed in a short  time, and then the force of men  will again bo increased at both  smelter aud mines.

Suburban shoppers, business folk and the  Idle minority were all homeward  bound. Electric trains -whirred and  clanged in every direction, and eager  crowds surged into them.  "Rosedale! Rosedale!" shouted the  starter.  Helen Groy gathered her suit case,  string bag and Boston fern and made  desperate efforts to secure a place. In  her haste she tripped on a loosened  shoestring and fell heavily into ' her  seat. She was wemy beyond words  with the day's shopping. It was a hot  evening, aud tho train was packed.  Passengers behind b.er crowded and  pushed, Jamming her against a man  nt the seat's end. A brass curtain rod  .which she was carrying prodded him  sharply in the ribs. She turned to  apologize, but the words tiled on her  lips when she found herself confronted  by the eager face of "tlio enemy."  With-"a brief word she drew the offending rod into place and tried to  edge away from him.  He had passed her early in the  morning bound cityward in his motor  car. She had encountered him si number of limes during the day, and when  she had committed her one extravagance, lunch at Maclean's, he, too, had  sauntered iu and had seated himself  at a window table beside hers. The  enjoyment of her lunch was spoiled  by the scrutiny of John Norman's gray  eyes.  The feud between the Normans and  Greys was of the flue, unreasonable  Now England typo. There had been  real cause for grievance at the outset,  two generations back, but when the  craned "Us Ifeck'In  Intense "'enjoyment  at what was going on.  Tho .motonnan, angry ut tho delay,  clanged lho bell with furlous-Juslstence,  and tho conductor's sharp "llurry up,  hurry up, lady; don't keep the car waiting!" added still further to her nervous  embarrassment.  John Norman's clear voice rang out,  "Wait a minute, conductor," in the  tone of one used to being obeyed. The  conductor had a profound respect for  Mr. Johu Norman and ran forward to  stop the clanging boll. In tlio moan-  time Norman had produced his pocket-  knife and had cut tlio knotted laces,  his and hers. She gave n confused  murmur of thanks, and Norman, hastily catching up lho parcels, followed her  out. There was uo word of protest,  and his sympathetic glance revealed  quivering lips and big brown eyes  suffused Willi tears.  Tho car whirred away, and n faint  echo of laughter was borne back. It  was tho last straw.  "Fools!" he ejaculated, while tho girl  leaned 'against a nearby wall and  laughed-till the tears ran down her  cheeks.  Tho vagaries of women wert beyond  his comprehension, and he looked his  bewilderment, standing mutely, with  suit case, bulging string bag and pot of  fern.  "Please, please forgive me," she  pleaded. "I cannot imagine how I camo  to do such a stupid thing."  He liked the pleading touo aud  the  kindly way in which she looked at him.  "It was a  happy mistake for me,"  ho said eagerly, "and I hope that wa  may bo friends."  She had an inkling that there was  more than lho thought of good fellowship in his mind as he held her hand iu  a lingering good night.  Some months later Mrs. John Norman, looking particularly pretty and  charming, loaned across the dinner  table and put a pertinent question to  her husband. -  "John, do you remember the evening  that I tied myself to you?"  "Of course 1 do. Is it likely that I  should forget anything so delightful?"  She hesitated. "I've been thinking"���������  Color came to her face. "John, did you  know that I tied that string to yours?"  Norman leaned back in his chair and  chuckled.  "Of course I did. Why, didn't I tell  you, dearest? Do you think that after  watching and waiting for mouths to  make your acquaintance I would  throw aside such an opportunity? You  tied yourself to mo, aud I knew it a  significant omen for our happy future."  N MEMORY OF VI  GREAT    NATIONAL    TRIBUTE  MAKING   SLOW   PROGRESS.  IS  HE   LOOKED   HIS   BEWILDEUIIENT, STANDING- MUTELY.  grandnieces of Ezra Grey came to live  in the old homestead John Norman,  grandson of William the Offender,  was more than ready to bury the  hatchet, and it was his irony of fate  that he should fall in love at sight  ���������with Helen Grey.  He was rich and popular and the  most eligible of Rosedale bachelors.  ne had never before been anxious in  regard to friendship with women.  During his thirty-six years there had  been so many things that ho had considered more important But for the  past four months he had planned and  schemed to reach a friendly footing  ���������with his neighbors and had failed.  ���������They quietly ignored his friendly advances, snubbed him a few times, and  now the fear of marring the armed  neutrality kept him from overstepping  their limit.  As Helen settled beside him in the  tram, he was very conscious of the  pressure of her arm against his and of  the weary droop of her pretty head.  ne had had her under espionage all  day and this accounted for his unusual  proceeding, going back to Itosedale by  trolley.  He was eager to take some of the  heavy bundles that Incumbered her  lap, but he dared not make tho suggestion; her shrinking movement from him  and her unfriendly glance were earnest  of a rebuff.  Twilight deepened, and the tights  twinkled In the car. When there was  elbow room, she must tie her loosened  shoestring. She made two or three  attempts to reach it, but to tie a shoo  In a crowded car, with bundle laden  lap and gloved fingers, is no easy feat  John Norman was aware of her efforts, as his foot was beside hers .on  tho rail of tho seat ahead. When he  felt a sharp tug at his shoestring, he  understood Its significance-. He knew  also by the energetic twist that tho  offending string was tied In a hard  knot and that was as it should bo.  She signaled the conductor to stop  at a corner some distance from her  home, rather than at the nearer one,  where they must alight together. Ho  understood the significance of this also.  She was getting off, bundle laden, to  avoid the possibility of any association  with him. Norman's hand stroked his  iiuistacho to conceal tho smile at her  transparent tactics.  As. tho car slowed, she rose burdened  ���������with bundles. Then came a struggle,  confusion and sickening distress, as  she dropped back fairly on John Norman's kneo. Then she realized what  the trouble was���������she hud tied her shoestring to his. She was profoundly  grateful for the cool, matter( of fact  way In which he took her wild behavior. She struggled to her feet  again, and all of Bosodalo that was  ridhig. jiopie Jn  that special  electric   ^ ���������u^'hl  When  Umbrellas Were First Used.  The introduction of the umbrella in  some places has been regarded of sufficient importance to be included in the  local annals. About 17S0 a red leghorn  umbrella was introduced into Bristol  and it created quite a sensation in  the city. It was about the same period  that an umbrella was first carried iu  tho streets of Stamford, Lincolnshire.  It was of Chinese manufacture and  was brought to Stamford from Glasgow. Mrs. Stockdale in 177G is recorded to have brought from the island  of Grenada, in tho West Indies, the  first umbrella seen in Carlmel, Lancashire.  In 1779 Dr. Spens, a popular physician, carried an umbrella in the streets  of Edinburgh, and he is credited  with introducing it into tho Scottish  capital. John Jameson, a Glasgow  surgeon, visited Paris about 17S1 or  175&! and brought back with him an  umbrella, which was the first seen iu  Glasgow, whore it attracted unusual  attention. William Symington was the  first person to carry an umbrella in  Paisley.  It is related by Horace Walpole ia  bis account of tho punishment of Dr.  Sliobberere for libel, Dec. 5, 17GS. that  when ho was iu the pillory a footman  held over him an umbrella to keep off  the rain. This has been described as  an aristocratic style of bearing punishment. The inidorshoritf got into  trouble for permitting the indulgence.  ���������London Chronicle.  Why  Bill Was  Umpire.  A cricket match was being played in  a meadow adjacent to Fanner Cow-  stick's orchard, and the worthy agriculturist was at tho wicket.  There had been great difliculty about  an umpire for this match, and when a  boy from the local school for young  gentlemen volunteered to act ho was  gladly .accepted.  Presently, to all appearances, the  farmer was run out, but the umpire  said no; and in the next over he was  obviously'stumped, but still the decision was in his favor, much to the  wicket keeper's disgust. Then when  tho farmer had compiled over fifty  runs, he was palpably "leg before." ���������  "'Ow's that?" called the bowler.  The youthful umpire'hesitated over  his decision and looked uncomfortable,  with a nervous glance over his  shoulder in tbe direction of the orchard.

Imperial Monument Being Erected���������  Will Cost $1,250,000���������Twelve Years  to Build���������Gigantic Statue to Form  Centrepiece���������Twelve Groups of Figures at Base���������Finest Work of Art  In. Empire. ������  The slow progress of the great me-  nforial to tho late Queen Victoria,  which is to be erected in front oi  Buckingham Palace, has been the sub-  ject of public criticism from time to  time, and it was stated some time'ago  that tho King wits bitterly disappointed that greater advancement has not  boeii  made.  Tho work has boon in hand for six  years, and loading sculptors who are  familiar with the magnitude of the  undertaking, declare that il cannot  be finished before the autumn of 1913,  and that, twelve years is not too long  for the completion of a piece of work  of such si/o and magnificence. A  full statement of the work already  accomplished was laid before the King  recently, and after inspecting models  of tho work now in hand, lie declared that ho was fully satisfied.  Victoria Central Figure  The production of the memorial i&  iu the hands of Mr. Thomas Brock  and Sir Aston Webb, the former, of  course, having charge of the sculpture and the latter of the architecture  of the memorial. All tho sculpture is  being executed in Mr. Brock's studio.  The central figure of the memorial  will be a gigantic statue of Queen  Victoria, 13 foot high, dressed in her  robes of state, seated amid groups  symbolical of tho personal and imperial qualities which made her reign  so illustrious. On her right will bo  Justice,, on Iter loft Truth, and at her  back Motherhood.  On the cornice of the upper pedestal there will be eagles with outstretched wings, representing Dominion, and on either.side will be figures  ���������Courage to the right, Constancy to  the left, making an admirable foil for  the great figure of Victory which will  rise above the whole. At the base  will be foiu ships* prows, two bearing trophies of the army and navy,  and two others with fruit and flowers,  emblematical of commerce and prosperity. On either side will be a great  fountain, one representing Empire,  the other Progress, discharging their  waters down steps into .a basin 160  feet long and twenty-eight feet wide.  The first fountain will be decorated  with .naval and military figures. On  the other fountain will be figures representing a triton  in  recline.  The enclosing wall, eight feet and  a half in height, will bear panels,  symbolical of the British as the spe-  ically favored sons of the sea. Flanking the steps will be lions and figures  representing Peace, Progress, Manufactures and Agriculture.  Twelve Group Figures.  The memorial will thus contain  twelve great groups of figures and  ISO panels The pedestal, with its  plinth, will be seventy feet high The  cost has been fixed at ������250,000.  Tt will be seen that this is a gigantic work for one man, with three assistants, to do in twelve years. The  Albert Memorial was the work of a  group of sculptors, hence its disappointing result. That is why the King  resolved from the beginning that the  Victoria Memorial should possess the  homogeneity lacking in the Albert  Memorial, and it also explains the  slow growth of the work.  V/hole World Ransacked.  It is probable that the magnificent  bronze lamps that Mr. Brock has 'designed for the Processional road will  be erected some time before the completion of the statuary. The whole  work, in adition to being a memorial  of the greatness of Queen Victoria's  reign, will be the finest modern work  of art in the British Empire.  The whole world has been ransacked for perfect' blocks of marble, of  which 350 tons were needed At one  time it was hoped to find a fifty ton  block of flawless Carrara marble for  the statue of Queen Victoria, but the  impossibility of getting a block of  such magnitude without a flaw, has  led Mr. Brock to determine to cut the  statue  from  smaller  blocks.

RAISING   SILKWORMS.  An Industry Whic i Is at Once Profitable and interesting.  "In my young days," said the naturalist, "boys used to go in for silkworms a great deal more than they do  now. 1 suppose it is harder to obtain  the eggs out hen- than it is in England, and it is certainly more difficult  to rear the worms In this country, for.  as you know, we have no climate here,  but only weather. However, the industry is extremely Interesting.  "Once got the eggs, even if you have  to send to Europe for them���������and they  are always to be had at this time of  the year or a little earlier from Covent  Garden market���������then set about- seeing they are batched by putting thorn  In the sun. With a camel's hair brush,  for they never ought to be touched by  the hand, take every worm off the mulberry leaf, or lettuce leaf for tho matter of that, for they will thrive just as  well on either, every mornlug. When  a silkworm is hatched it Is about a  fourth of an Inch in length. After  eight days it changes���������that Is, It refuses Its fuod and'remalns In a state of  .lethargy Tor throe days. Four days  afterward it goes through the same  process, unci In live tiays. again, and  lastly after eight days more.  "Ton days then elapse, and tlio caterpillar attains its full size. At the end  of thls^tlu'e the worm change;! ton  clear pink color and looks semfrrans-  piiront. It refuses fo^l. becomes restless and prepares to spin Its cocoon. It  one wishes to obtain the silk In quantities It Is best to supply n cornucopia  Drop the caterpillar Inio this contrlv  nitre, and It will weave Its silk.  "The cocoon (.-(insists of three tli.a-  tint layers of silk. The first Is loose  .nml (lossy, the second Is closer, and.  the third Is still liner and Is the real  silk After a lapse of two weeks the  chrysalis forms Into a moth. To prevent Its eating Its way through the  silk tho latter Is wound off on n piece  of cardboard before ' the chrysalis  turns Into a moth. If tho cocoon Is  submerged In warm water tho silk will  como off easily. There Is no. fear of  drowning the chrysalis, as It Is.protect-  ed by a watertight skin. One cocoon  will yield from 000 to 1.000 feet-of silk.  When the moth appears It cannot fly,  although it has wings. The females  lay their eggs and die, and the males  do not live long. One female produces  about 400 eggs. Many diseases menace their lives In tho worm state, but  they must bo kept In a warm atmosphere.

Compared with the census of 1901.  which was for the calendar year 1900,  there wore in the first class 173  works producing each $500,000 and  over in 1905, as against 72 in 1900;  in tho second class there were G2  works producing $750,000 and over' in  1905, as against 2-1 in 1900, and in the  third class there were 17 works producing $2,500,000 and over, as,  against (5 in J 900. There were  four works in 1905 producing each $5,-  000,000 and over, whereas not one fac-'  tory had reached the amount in 1000.'  Some Great Producers.  The greatest volume of production  by n single factory in 1905 was over  $3,000,000, and the-great'":1 in 1900  was under $4,500,000. T' production  of all works in tho year 1900 was $481,-  053,371, and in 1905 it was'-$717,118,-  092.  /n the third class there were four  Canadian sugar refineries producing,  on the average $4,288,005 per annum,"  nine smelting establishments producing on the average $2,899,707, twelve  slaughtering and meat packing" establishments . averaging $1,687,481, . six  flouring and grist mills averaging $3,-  318,242, four cotton mills averaging  $1,715,333, and three agricultural implement works averaging $1,725,737.  All told, there' were in 1905 eighty-  one establishments with an annual production of over one million dollars  each, as compared with thirty-nine in  1901.  Growth ot Population.  Canada now has a population of  over six and a half millions. The Department of Census and Statistics has  recently made a careful and elaborate  estimate of the population. It found  thut on tho first day of April, this  year, the population of Canada was,  as nearly as could bo estimated, 6,-  504,900. This is a growth of population in six years, since the last decennial census, of 1,133,535. The total  population in 1901 was 5,371,315. If  the present rate of growth is maintained Canada will show a population of  over seven and a half millions when  the next census is taken.  Since April 1 last the immigration  has totalled over 100,000, so that the  total population at:tho present date is  in the neighborhood of $6,GOO,000.   ���������  FEEDING FOR MARKET.  Simple   and   Profitable   Way  of   Preparing  Birds  For Table  Use.  Well developed and well-fed fowls  find a ready' market at good prices  all seasons, but "scrubs" are not in  demand anywhere, and cannot te  raised to sell at a profit. " ,  ��������� The Plymouth Rocks, Wyandottes,  Orpingtons -and Dorkings, are tho  breeds best adapted for tending purposes for farmers. First crosses oi  these .with Indian, game make' excellent table birds. Our -illustration  shows' the result of a Dorking and  ���������Indian game cross, which produces  almost, tho ideal carcase.  ; -Unfortunately, the high comb ol  the -Dorking renders-it rather susceptible to frost.' and therefore care and  good shelter is required t.o keep these  birds laying'in winter.

To successfully raise chickens and  realize higli prices in summer and  autumn, the birds must bo well fed  from the time they are hatched, and  particularly during the early weeks  of their lives, for if stunted then, they  are not likely to recover from it, in  time to be of value the first season.  The writer has tested a great many  methods of fattening fowls of all ages  and has arrived at the conclusion  that the simplest and most profitable  way is to "confine them for about ten  or twelve days in large pens (not  coops or crates) and feed them three  times a day as much cornmeal and  oatiitieal, moistened and'mixed, as they  will'"eat. . If they have -been previously properly cared for, this treatment  will..finish them sufficiently well to  meet the requirements of any .market.  Old hens, when fattened in this  way, are equal, if not superior, as  table birds, to either pullets or cockerels in their prime, though they do  nof'usually bring as good-a price on  the market.  THE  BAY   HORSE.  OBJECTED TO CHANGE.  Indian  With  Gun  Prevents Payment  of Treaty  Money.  With a gun pointing . at Indian  Agent McKenzie's torn at Sabaskosh-  ing an Indian named Nee Shoo Kee-  *jick threatened to shoot any Indian  who accepted treaty money, and also  the agent if he paid any of them.  This was tlio outcome of the deci  sion of the Indian Department to pay  the different tribas in the district at  their own camping grounds instead  of asking them to meet in one big  camp at Sabaskoshing as in former  years. In the interest of the Indians  this was felt to be the better method,  as in former years when they con-  -gregated together at Sabaskoshing  they frittered away their money.  The new method, however, has noi  appealed to a few agitators among  them, who liked the big gathering,  "with its pomp and show, and the visitation of large numbers of whites.  Agent McKenxie, accompanied by  Dr. Hanson, Government medical representative, and interpreters have  \-asitcd several camps making - payments during the past couple of  weeks, and though grumbling was  heard the" Indians did not make any  demonstrations. ������������������-���������:-..-  \However, when Sabaskoshing" Ee-  serve \\ as reached they were not long  left in; doubt that something would bo  done. As soon as the tent was erected Nee Shoo Keejick tookhis position  before the entrance and 'informed Mc-  Kenzie that if he paid any of the Indians he would shoot him and also  the Indian who received the money.  As a result, no payments were made  and. tlio agent and his assistants returned to town, and on Tuesday" Constables Sherman and Woods went out  and arrested the Indian. He was looking at the muzzle of a couple of guns  before he realized the situation, and  was bro'iglit to town. In the absence  of mi interpreter the cat-e was adjourned."  In former years tho Sabaskoshing  treaty grounds wore the scene of the  greatest gathering of Indians in New  Ontario.     -  A New Complaint.

The bay colored horse is said to be  the sw'ftest of all the horses. A story  to illustrate this is told of a certain  Arab sheik who, having been engaged  ���������u a fight with another tribe, was tills-*  ng his flight with his little son.  They were both mounted on a mag-  ltficent white mare which belonged to  the sheik and which had always been  highly" valued on~ account of the great  -peed lit which It could go. After hav-  ug .;ridden some little distance the  'hoik asked his son to look around and  *ee if they were being followed.

A Little Vaseline Improves and Preserves the Binding.  An official of the.Congressional library was talking with u friend who  recently had purchased a handsome set  of leather bound volumes and said:  "You had better examine those volumes carefully to see if the leather  needs feeding.'. If It is new stock they  will be all right let alone for several  years, but If they have been on the  shelves for some time the leather will  have lost most of its natural oil and  become brittle. This applies especially  to books kept in private houses, which  are as a. rule'much' hotter than the book  stacks1 of a large library. There Is  nothing more attractive than a fresh,  well preserved leather binding on a  volume and scarcely anything.less..so  than u,dilapidated, cracked one...  "You can add years to the life of a  leather binding and a hundred per cent  to Its appearance by rubbing In a little  vaseline with a piece of raw cotton-  not too much, just as much ns the  leather will thoroughly absorb. Where  tho binding bends Is where It Is most  likely to crack. The leather will not  be grea.*y, as tlio vaseline will bo ab-  iorbed. One treatment every year or  two Is.sufficient unless the books are  unduly exposed to heat."

Copyrighted, 1907, by Mary McKeon.   a o  ' In the birch blossom path I saw her  first, aud my mind was full of annoyance because my sister, who kept my  house, should Invite a girl to visit her  and then Insist that It was my duty to  help entertain her. I would do nothing of the sort, I was thinking, when a  turn In the white blossomed pathway  brought her to my view.-  . She was slender and had a great  mass of brownish yellow hair, piuncd  up with gold pins, one of which glowed sardonically at me with its topaz  eye. While I was wondering why she  didn't comb her" hair smoothly she  turned, and her eyes, of a wonderful  vivid blue, scorned to look down Into  my very soul.  " "Stand perfectly still, Mr. Angove,  and shut your eyes. Is there anything  so sweet in this wide world as a birch  Dath in springtime? Don't open them,  Mr. Angove. I want you to get the  fragrance uninterrupted by any other  sense."  Why' I should have stood there with  my foolish eyes shut tight 1 don't  know, but I did until she gave me  permission to look at the white feathery sprays and at her. Then quite sociably we strolled the rest pf the way  together. I began to feel Interested In  knowing what she would say when we  came to the end of the path and she  saw���������  "������vhy, I don't know your name," I  eaUl abruptly.  "At first you are going to address  rue as Miss Britland," she replied  promptly. "Afterward you will say  Frances, and at the end you will call  me Caprice."  "Why in the world should I call you  Caprice?" I asked.  "I don't know," she said. "Don't you  ever say things just as if'somebody  inside of you'were saying them with  your own tongue?"  My reply to this amazing question  ���������was hindered by the ending of the  birch bushes. Wo stood facing a little  pagoda of white marble. I looked at  the girl. Her hands were tensely  clasped; her red lips were quivering.  "It's like walking down the pathway  of love and suddenly coming to the  very temple of .love itself!" she exclaimed.  I frowned. Why should my sister  prattle to strangers of our ancestors'  conceptions? She seemed to divine my  thoughts.  "Why do you look at me like that?  ���������What Is It?   What does it mean?"  I showed her the inscription on the  worn threshold���������"Temple of Love"���������  and with a sudden swift grace she  knelt above the lettering." Then she  sprang up. "Come, Mr. Angove," she  cried gayly; "I will run you a race!"  -So back along the birch lined path  we ran like two childreu, and only my  Bister's amused smile at the end of tho  race reminded me of my forgotten dlg-  , /nlty. I spent tho rest of the day  among my books and alone.   .  Next morning Miss Britland and I  selected a walk opposite the birch path.  This was a straight path through an  avenue of stalely pines. Yesterday the  girl had been fanciful or merry; this  day she was neither. She walked sedately by' me, talking quite learnedly  of the future cf radium. I began to see  why I might some time call her Caprice.  "This Is the path of the pines," I  said when we had exhausted radium.  "We should have taken this one first,  for It leads straight and true as the  compass needle to the temple, while  the birch path meanders foolishly this  way and that and makes one many unnecessary steps to reach the same  place."  "One welcomes unnecessary steps  ���������when one walks with the spirit of the  woods," she answered. "Anyway, you  should not have told me that this path  leads to the same place. - It would  have been nicer Cor me to discover It  for myself."  "So it would," I answered humbly.  "How shall I atone?"  "By telling mo of yourself," she replied.  -There Isn't much to tell," I said,  feeling pleased at her interest. We sat  In the pagoda, and for me at least It  was the temple of loye. Let he who  will prate of long growing affection.  To me love came as tho sun *rises suddenly over the mountain.  I told her of niy-life as a boy In college, as a man in the business world  till this estate came to me, neglected  r.nd long uninhabited.  Another day I- told her about the  temple, how my ancestor had laid out  these paths to typify his love for his  fair young wife and hor love for him���������  one path, quick and true as the compass mjedlo, the other sweet in Its shy  deflections, iut ending Just as surely  it the temple.  "What was the young wife's name?"  she asked.  "I don't know. His diary Is full of  hor beauty and sweetness and accomplishments, but it never mentions hor  name. He had his own names for her  ���������Sunbeam, Starlight, Heartsease. Love  like that should not die when the  bodies of tho lovers are dust."  VHow do you know that It does?"  she demanded. "How do you know  but their souls are living again and  laving just the same?"  She nad so many strange thoughts,  this  little. I'-rnnccs,  and  she  had  so  taany   moods���������gay.   serious.. learned  childlike.   How I loved her!   I could  ���������ot waft ninth longer to tell her so,  but I seemed to lack the right wo rau.

'I wish that It could speak, for ll  "A secret drawer in the wall, back of  my   wardrobe!"   she   gasped. '   "Anil  three nights since she has been here  has  Frances  dreamed of finding  lei  ters!"  I saw with a ��������� curious feeling the  peculiar chirog'raphy, of my ancestor,  f read aloud:  "Look under the threshold of the  temple, thou man of my own blood,  but think not to appropriate to thyself  what,thou'Shalt find there. They are  for her whom thou Iovest as I loved  my own Caprice."  "Dig, dig!" exclaimed my sister,  dropping ou her knees and trying to  pry up the step with her bare bauds.  "Don't sit there and stare at each other, you two.   Let's find what's here."  It was not a hard task, for time had  loosened the 'marble steps till they  were easily removed. It was au-excll--  Ing moment when "my sister.'s eager-  hands dragged to view a small Iron  box.    ~ -        !  "Open it, brother!" she cried.   ���������  ."Jewels!" cried the sweet, excited  voice of my dear girl. --  I have always admired my sister, but  ���������ever more than at, that moment, when  her curiosity must have been well nigh  uncontrollable. She cast one swift  look at us two; thcujshe started up the  pine path.   .

'       -  '  "Tell me "that you love me, dear," I  pleaded.        ���������  .   .  " She put her flower-like face to mine.

The great mystery about Indo-Chlna  and one which must ever be Insoluble  is the story of the lost race and the  vanished civilization of that strange  country. The mighty walls of Angkor-  Wat, rising In the midst of sparsely  settled jungles, remain as the memorial of a great empire which has utterly disappeared and is altogether lost  to history. No one will -ever know  who planned this gigantic temple or  what tyrant hounded on his myriads  of people to build up those immense  blocks of stone and cover them with  the most elaborate of sculptures. Angkor-Wat was one of the.most astonishing monuments In the world, and  this forgotten t<������nple was built so*"as  to endure as long as the ������irth Itself  were It not for the Irresistibly destructive effect of plant life on the  strongest walls that man can raise.  Only a highly civilized , and very  wealthy people could have' erected  Angkor-Wat, a very different race from  tho Anamlto of modern days. The  whole nation has disappeared as utterly as tlio busy myriads who once populated tlio wastes and solitudes of  Mcmphls.-  To Cook an Appetizing Meal Without  Outside Heat.  What can be.more, tiresome than to  have to set to work and cook something when one gels home thoroughly  fired In the eveuing? And yet this is  what nine girls out of ten have to do.  Those who cannot afford tho "expense  of a restaurant must fall back upon  what they can manage for themselves,  more often than not a chop or boiled  egg, with the teapot to cheer things  up. Of course one would not think  of regretting tbe dear little flat which  was fitted up with such pride. Still,  one cannot but sometimes wish, as one  fits the key in the door, that some good  ���������fairy ha_d,popped in-and cared for the  dinner.  ��������� I fear that' I cannot .-promise the  fairy, -but with the help of a box,  which any girl can make for herself  from the directions I shall give, there  may certainly be found a nice meal  waiting that will only need-a .trifle  of warming up before it can be served.  Fifteen minutes or so given to the  preparation of the dishes before leaving In the morning will surely not be  much hardship.  Get a strong box with a lid���������a suitable one can usually be found at tho  grocer's���������and paste a thick layer of  felt all over it inside, the lid as well.  Fill the box with hay, and it Is ready  for use. Two or three dainty, fireproof  dishes of different shapes and sizes,  with well fitting lids, should be invested in, as they save the trouble of  "dishing up."  , THE  PLATE  RACK.  i '  It May Be a Decorative Bit or a Discordant Note.  Plate racks tell many a tale of taste,  or, rather, of the lack of it.

There Is a rule that is worth adhering to in choosing such plates, and  that Is to choose only simple designs  and colorings, unless you do, as one  woman, did, make a hobby of collecting plates of' a certain country or  kind. She went In for Chinese plates  and used only the pretty variations of  medallion and its kindred wares, with  the result that her plate rack was Interesting In its orientalism.

SLEEVE HOLDER,  bunched at the shoulder. An ingenious  Englishwoman has Invented a simple  contrivance which does away with all  these trying perplexities, and she thinks  so highly of the device that she has  bad it patented In the United States. As  shown in the illustration, It comprises  a narrow elastic band, having on each  end a ring, one being larger than the  other. Attached to the band Is a double cord. In using this device the band  Is formed into a lasso (by slipping tbe  smaller ring through the larger one),  which la slipped over the,end of the  sleeve of the waist The fine end of1  tho band Is then secured to the thumb  by tho ring." The cord Is attached to  the little finger. After slipping the  arm Into the sleeve of the coat the ring  on the thumb is released and the band  pulled out of the armhole by means of  the cord.  * At night apply to the nose an ointment made after this formula: One  dram of powdered sulphur, two and  one-half drams of powdered starch,  one and one-half ounces of ointment  of zinc oxide and three drops of oil of  rose.

To Broil a Steak.  Few housewives understand the art  of broiling, and consequently chops  and steaks are often robbed of their  delicate flavor by frying In a pan.  A steak or chop properly broiled  should have a thin, well browned crust  Beyond this crust'the meat should bo  red 'and Juicy, hardly a shade less  done In the middle than near the surface. ��������� ���������'���������.:'"  If the broiling Is to be done on a  range, have the fire' very bright and  clear. Open every draft, that smoke and  flames may bo drawn up tho chimney.  Place the piece of meat In the double  broiler and hold It as near the coals  as possible until the surface Is brown,  turning .frequently. It will take three  or four minutes for this. . Now raise  the broiler several Inches above the  bed of coals and continue the cooking  until the meat Is done.  Tho broiler/must be turned often. A  good rule Is to count ton slowly, then  turn the broiler. A steak or chop cut  it little more than an Inch thick will  cook nicely In ten minutes. If liked  well done, It should be cooked for  twelve minutes.  Living Room.  In n living room where all things receive constant use, and hard use at  that, It Is often something of a problem  to know what to have as covering for  the couch cushions, beauty being desired as well as durability." The materials that have proved most satisfactory from every point of view are the  art tickings, cretonnes and - chintzes.  These all stand repeated laundering as  well as hard wear. They are pretty  and possessed of great variety as to  color and design. Stripes, floral designs galore and beautiful Persian patterns may be had in these cottons and  linens, and "when used In conjunction  with each other they make of the living room couch a most cozy und inviting spot, luring tho unsuspecting on to  many an idle hour.  Wrinkles In a young person's face  are often merely lines of congested  pores, tiny lines of blackheads, which  will be found upon opening a wrinkle.  Steaming the face gently, afterward  massaging tho wrinkles easily with  cold cream, will produce a wonderful  effect. Steaming must not be done  often, however, once a week being frequent enough.  For odorous perspiration make a  powder of one-half ounce of oleate of  zinc, one ounce of powdered starch  and one scruple of salicylic acid. Mix  thoroughly. Buy some salicylic soap  and use that to wash the parts most  ���������ifl'octed. Dry and wipe .over with  toileA vinegar. The vinegar helps to  contract th3 pores, preventing perspiration. After wiping with vinegar  duet on the powder. Put on fresh  fluen as often as possible and wash the  dress shields every day, using the  salicylic soap.  Cause of the Queer  Lights That 'Appear In Woods and Swamps.' -  If you should happen to be in the  woods on a dark night and should suddenly see a bright light with a bluish,  ' tinge, don't*get frightened."'The light  doesn't come from the glaring orbs ot  a panther or of even a wildcat'   It is  only a harmless bit of decayed  wood  which in the course of decomposition  emits   phosphoric    light     You   may  ���������readily   dig  this   luminous  wood   out  from the body of the decayed tree, and  it will retain its luminosity ..for some"  * days after you have removed it.

But this light giving  property   of   decomposing   wood   baa  . nearly frightened the life out of many  .- a novice in wood lore. '  Who has not heard of the wiIl-o'-the������  wisp, jack-o'-lantern or ignis fatuns, as  we say in Latin, meaning ��������� "foolish  fire?" But comparatively few people  ' have seen it, and nobody knows just  what causes It. There is no doubt  that the Ignis fatuus is a tangible thing  ���������something more than the usual fabric .  of a nursery story���������but what is it?  Naturalists all have their opinions  about it,' but these opinions widely  'vary., ''       '  It 'usually, appears In marshy d1*-  "trlcts, and the most plausible opiuioa  is that it emanates from the decomposition of bones, generating gas charged  with phosphorus, which Ignites by con-  ' tact with atmospheric air. ,The trouble  In solving the mystery arises from the,  fact that you can't capture a jack-'o-  lantern and take It home for chemical  analysis. No matter how carefully  you approach the mysterious light. It  will elude you and airily dance on "  uhead. The bubble of luminous gas is  disturbed by the slight agitation of the  ah caused by your approach, and hence  the attempt to capture it is as impossible as to catch up with your own  shadow.
