I The Location or  Gray'* Saw Mill  Officially Inquired Into-i'onnell  Proceeding*.  to he  Atthe meeting of the city council  last Wednesday all members -were  present except Aldermen Fletcher and  ' Teetzel. The following letter, date  lined from New Westminster,' was  read and filed:  Iu reply to your letter of the 6th inst.  in connection with tbe erection of a saw  mill by Mr. T. W. Gray on the west arm  of Kootenay lake I beg tb say that I  have no authority to take any responsibility in this matter.   However, I will  Bhortly be in Nelson and will look over  [Jtlie situation so that. I may be able to  report to the department should I be  called upon to do so.   Very obediently,  . Jos. R Bat,  Resident Engineer.  Alderman Dow introduced bylaw No.  20, providing for the collection ot a road  poll tax for, 1897.   The city collector was  named in the bylaw aa the person to  . whom   the   tax . should  be paid and  October 30 was the date named when.  it should become dne.   It provides a tax  of $2.00 on all male persons resident in  Nelson;, who shall be between the ages  of 21 and SO years.   The bylaw was read  first, second and third times and considered in committee of the whole.   It was  ordered that.it be finally adopted at a  meeting to be held on Friday, October  22 at 3 p.m.  Bills to the amount of $301.33 were  audited and ordered paid. The  amount included one for 1155.25 from  H. J. Evans & Co, for cement.  A petition for a crossing at the corner ol.Josephine and Silica streets was  referred to the committee on public  works.  A communication irom George H.  Duncan, of the. Provincial Board of  Health," acknowledged the receipt of  a telegram; from . the' city clerk to tho  effect that plans for the sewer system  would bo forwarded soon as Mr. Gam-  . -ble had reported upon the'flow of  jvater in Kootenay river, the intention, of the city being to discharge the  sewer iu deep water. Mr. Duncan stated  that he would lay the matter before the  board at its next meeting on Monday,  Oct. 18th.  Adjourned until Friday at 3 p. m.  MILES IN THREE MONTHS.   ,  Spokane articles. Tho witness said.that  milk that had been watered was not nt  food for infants under the age of two  years. It was unfit for all persons suffering from sickness. He anid that all  ingredients in milk are injurious and it  oessed to be milk when they were added.  It would depend on the nutiiro.ofthe  fatty, matter introduced whether* or not  it would be injurious.  Mr..Holdicb testified that the report  submitted by - him was correct and a  supplemental report showed .that when  the solids were reduced to ash the percentage was small. In regard' to the  superabundance of fatty matter, this  might be produced by, taking samples of  milk from the top of the cans where the  cream had arisen. The amount of fatty  matter differed, with each sample. He  believed that the standard of milk fixed  by public analysis was 11% per cent.  solid matter and 88% per cent, water.  '  Mr. Hurry made the statement that on  the morning the chief took the samples  that it was all night's milk. At 6 a.m.  Hurry turned the milk into a 25 gallon  tank and then run it back into the cans.  That was why be could not seo that the  analysis should differ. The milk remained ' iu the cans from 6 to 8 a.m. and  the chief got almost pure cream. V.  The defendant was released on bis own  recognizances.  Before Mr. Justice Walkem last  Thurday evening, Mr. Hurry .elected  for a speedy trial and will probably  have a hearing next week. .

He was tried  before Justice Walkem on Wednesdoy  on a charge of unlawfully entering the  hospital and creating a disturbance. Tbe  jury brought. in a verdict ot guilty and  the court sentenced the transgressor to  three months in jail.- Miles, it appears,  went up to the hospital when his head  was not wholly steady and because he  could not find the party for whom he  was searching he created a disturbance  and terrorized the inmates. He will  probably serve his sentence in Kamloops.  HUBBY MUST ANSWER.  Tans ������f   ������re  ���������welter.  A shipment of 21 tons of Chapleau ore  was made to the -Nelson smelter last  Wednesday from this place.; The:.ore  will average between $200 and $400 to  tbe ton and will net the owners a handsome profit.   .  Frank Dick, the assayer, and one of  the. owners'of the property, feels very  jubilant over-the outlook- of the mine.  The lease of Tattersoll and Teeter on the  property has run out, but arrangements  have been made whereby Mr. Teeter  assumes an interest in the mine, which  will now be worked under the supervision  of all the owners.. Mr. Dick, says, they  intend driving a tunnel on the present  workings until such distance is reached  when bad air will begin to bother them,  when another tunnel will be driven in a  short distance from the old one and a  crosscut made to tap tbe old tunnel. By  doing this a fine body of ore will be  blocked out. '.���������-...     "x  The owners received a rate of $13.25  per ton from this place to Nelson, including treatment, which ;is considered very  reasonable, but by the time another car  load is ready for shipment the Slocan  river road will be built and even a betUr  rate will then be obtained.���������Slocan'City  News. "��������� ."-,  McPHEE IS TREE.-  The grand jury, concluded its labors  last Thursday afternoon, with a pre:  sentuienb to. the   court.'.one   of the  principal   features   of   which   was   a  paragraph    relating   to   the  powder  magazine across-the river.   The presentment inf ull is as follows:  To.   the    Honorable,     Mr.    Justice  - -Walkem, Court of Assize, Nelson.  The grand jury, cc-ngratulate your  Lordship   on   the   small  number   of  criminal cases brought before you, and,  wheii' considering -.the    very,   large  increase of population; it speaks well  for" law and order* in South Kootenay  which,   is... fast  becoming   the : most  prominent'milling   section, of  North  America,     'y ���������       ,-'     :   .-���������"'.  Touching matter&'of vital interest .to  the. community which we believe, come  within our province as jurors we beg  again to _ remind, the government of  the presence of a powder inagizine in  our midst, a very.serious source of  danger, more especially iri view of the  growth arid increase of population of  ttaet City, of Nelson.. We, might also  remind your Lordship that ��������� very  serious calamities have'befallen communities when such disregard to  public safety has '.been permitted to  exist. ''��������� '������������������''  We also feel it our duty' to call  attention to, the present -state of the  government wharf, owing to which a  number of valuable horses have been  drowned .< and; lives .., of. passengers  endangered for .want .of, necessary  repairs and improvements, largely;  owing to the great increase in .traffic.  Our experience'.at this .assize leads  us to express thc opinion that did the  government display; better judgement  in the selection of the administrators-  of justice and officers of the lower  courts of this district, we Avould have  been relieved of several. cases,, and the  country' saved ; .'considerable . j and  unnecessary expense,''' without impairing the:.ends of Justice.  Wejfeel that your/Loi-dsliip-will  hear&iy agree with- "iis * iri" calling  attention to the very poor and inadequate accommodation> in: the .Nelson.  court "h"ouse:, "and that owing to the  increasing law business of this section  demands the immediate attention of  the government. The want of room  for a law library, judge's chambers,  and: fitting: accoinmp4atiqn for jurors  and barristers is a matter well within  the work of reservoir or flume construction on land owned by plaintiffs. It is  claimed that the city without due  authority of law went on land owned  by the plaintiff and started the construction of a reservoir and other works connected with tbe proposed water system,  without first making arrangements with  the company for the land required. Tbe  oity apparently claimed the right to do  8o-.:under the expropriation clause but  Mri Davies contends that his company  was entitled to a settlement either by  adjudication or piivate understanding  before the work was started.  . The case will probably come up for  hearing before Mr. Justice Walkem next  "week.  GENERAL LOCAL NEWS.  EVENTS   OF   INTEREST   IN  ABOUND NELSON.

"Another athabasca ledge.  It   Buns   ut  Uight Angles   With the Otil  .-                            lend.  A strike has been made on the Athabasca property on Toad mountaiu which  promises to be nn important ooe.   About  ac month ago some float was discovered  which gave assays of $300 and over.   A  number of men were at once put to work  to locate the ledge and last Saturday  tbey., found it about 350 feet above the  present workings.   At the place where it  was opened it  showed a width   of 18  inches but it is thought tobewider.in  places as some of the  float showed a  width of 24 inches.   The new ledge runs  at right aDgles tb the present one arid  "the company is now stripping it for the  purpose of following it and finding the  contact with the old lead.    The ore is  very similar to that taken from the old  ledge aud carries considerable free gold.  No. assay bas yet been taken from the  ledge. '        .  ,-/ DISPUTE OVER A 0LAIM..  Question ������>r Prior location ami no Mineral  in Place.  The case of Beaton.vs. Grobe is on  trail .before Mr. Justice Walkem and  occupied tho greater part,of yesterday.  The fauit involves the title to n mineral  claim staked by the plaintiff as the Olive  Beaton and by the defendant as tbe  Chahalis.. The plaintiff contends that  he is the prior locator < and that the dis-  'coveryrpost. of defendant is 3% inches  instead:of'four inches. Another contention ia -that' there is no mineral in place  at the1 discovery post. The defendaut  clairiis to the . contrary and puts in a  counter claim that he has the prior location and. that the Olive Beaton location  is void on account of having no mineral  in place .at the- discovery post. J. H.  Bowes and' R. E. McDonald represent  the plaintiff" and W. A. McDonald, Q.C.  and E. A.'Crease appear for, the defense.  The  Jury  Itound  lletorns   a    Verdict   of Kot  Guilty.  J. M. McPhee, the man charged with  forging the Keen petition at; Kaslo is  once more a free man, the verdict of the  jury last Tuesday being *?not guilty."  The case occupied the greater part of  two days and much expert testimony was  introduced. The line, of defense wa3  that the petition could have been forged  by anybody and that the prosecution had  failed to fix the responsibility, on- the  defendant. The jury' was out about  three-quarters of an hour.  A CHINESE SUICIDE.  Over   on  a  Charge   of Belllns  Impure Milk,  Ou Thursday F. K. Hurry was bound  over in the sum ot $500 by Magistrate  . Crease, to answer before a court of competent jurisdiction, to a charge of having  in his possession, for sale, adulterated  milk that was unfit for human consumption.  Acting Chief of Police. MoKinnon was  the first witness called arid testified tbat  on, October 6 he took 12 bottles ot milk  from Hurry's wagon and these he took to  Teetzel's drug store to be delivered to  Dr. ��������� La Bau for analysis. Two of the  samples were Spokane milk and the other  10 were from Hurry's dairy.  Mr. Hurry at this announcement said  that the Spokane article was sterilized  milk and the cream would not come to  the top.  Mr. Teetzel nnd his clerks testified  that the milk was left in the store by the  chief for Dr. La Bau and that there was  no chance of its being tampered with  while they were there. Either Mr.  ' Teetzel or one of the clerks was in the  store all the time. The defendant  endeavored to draw out the point that it  was possible for the milk to have been  , tampered with during the time it was in  "the store.  Dr. La Bau testified to delivering the  milk to Mr. Holdichfor chemical analysis and said that they were marked eo  : they could be indentified. Ten of  Ife 12 samples had been reported as  I'lnlterated and the other two were the  your Lordship's lawwlpdge7"7T7~   -T ,~  We   congratulate -the 'government  on the, building of a suitable jail, now  in course of erection. -  We feel that tho rapid development  of our district, and thc_ state of law  and order under -which'-we live must  be a matter of sincere congratulation  to your Lordship, the , f earlesss and  impartial administration of justice by'  yourself and brother judges having so  largely contributed to;bring about tho  present state of prosperity and general  order. . . . -  ��������� Verdict of Not Cnllty.  John Raskopf was tried twice before  Mr. Justice Walkem last Thursday on  a charge of stealing $G0 from Rodger  Hopkins. The first jury disagreed and  another was impanelled arid a verdict  of not guilty brought in. A short  time ago Raskopf went to Spokane  and Hopkins thought hecouldindentify  the money used in the purchase of the  ticket. He swore out a warrant but  extradition was unnecessary as  Raskopf voluntarily returned to  Nelson.  Will go to Klondyke.  W. F. Thompson, publisher, of the  Trail Creek News, will head the first  Klondyke party from Trail. He proposes to leave there about March 1,  arid go to the gold fields by way of  Ashcroft and the Cariboo country.  He will be accompanied by Loss Bernard of Trail, John Garvin of Denyer,  aud Rev. F. L. Pollard?of East Orange,  N. J. It is possible that Dr. Hayes  and J. J. Inkster, also of Trail, may  join the party. "  Six Months for Assault.  P. Costello, the Rossland foreman, who  assaulted Cronyn by kicking him in the  head as he was attempting to emerge  from a sewer trench, was tried for the  offense last Wednesday before Mr.  Justice Walkem. The jury brought ina  verdict of common assault and Justice  Walkem sentenced him to six months at  Kamloops. The sentence was commuted  to $100 which was paid.  PILOT BAY SMELTER.  Concentrator  Will   Start   lo   WorK   Xcxt  Week.  William Braden.'of the Pilot Bay  smelter, .states that" the sampler aud  concentrator aro in a first class condition and the latter will probably start  in operation   some   time next week.  He4s not-at  liberty to state when the  smelter  will blow iri.   The\smelter is  commencing to receive ore from their  own mines, the Lucky Jin), on the X.  & .S.; - the .Tariff at-' -Ainsworth;   the  Blue Bell on the peninsula, and also  from ono outside mine,  the No. 1 at  Ainsworth.     At   present, the Lucky  Jim is employing from 22 to 25 men,  the Tariff 20 men and the Blue Beil 20  men.   A number of other mines are  under contract' to ��������� supply ore but for  business    reasons    they    cannot    at  present be named.     As soon as the  concentrator starts in work, between  40  and  50  men. will be employed at  Pilot Bay.    -The . matte and  bullion  produced will be seut to the Omaha &  Grant smelter,   -  Sickness, and Poverty   Is   Alleged to   be  the   Cause.  On Thursday morning the dead  -bodyrof-I^m-Lung,_a^Chinainan,_i\^s.  found in his shack on tlie water front,  and an examination revealed the fact  that he had died from the effects of  opium poisoning. He had eaten large  quantities of the drug and there is no  "question but that he took ib_with, suicidal intent.'  . Lung had .been sick-for 'a long time  and was practically -without funds.  As there seemed to be no immediate  prospect of his getting well or replenishing his exchequer, he" became very  .despondent and took the dose that  carried hiin into an oriental hereafter.

Mr. Justice Walkam today or Monday will.render a decision in the case  of the Center Star and the Iron Mask  mining companies.   The  dispute   between the companies is over an important vein lying near tho boundary.  lines between thc two claims.   Both  properties wore located under the act  of 1891 which confers a title to all mineral found in any vein thc apex of  which Hes within thc claim.   The-in-  terpertation by the Center Star is that'  they are legally permitted to follow a  vein tbe apex of which is on the claim  and whicli leads into a body of ore on  the Iron Mask ground.   Ifc is this body  of ore that is in dispute and the Iron  Mask people claim that there is no  apex on the Center Star leading to it.  They'further allege that the Center  Star people are trepassers and have no  right to go into Iron Mask ground.  There is a large body of iron stained  rock ou each side of the Hue and hence  au ordinary survey would not settle the  dispute as it might be an open question  as' to -which"'''claim contained "llie true  apex .of .the vein:-Such'> controversy'  would be impossible under the present  miniug laws, which only grant the mineral'  contained within the borders of a claim.  DECISION EOT RENDERED.  Hall Mine.-.  wns followed by a dance which was fairly  well attended.  Lieut.-Col. Domville, M.P. for Kings,  N. B., A.-T." Salisbury Jones and G. Mortimer ot London.

The application of the Hall Mines com-  pany.for'2C0 miner's inches of water from  .Cottonwood creek below the dam ofthe  Nelsou Electric Light compauy was  heard before Gold Commissioner Dennis  last Thursday but no decision has yet  beeu rendered in the matter. The  inquiry was secret and the commissioner  -refuses-to-divu]go-hi3-finding.untiLthe_  attorneys can be brought together. The  Electric Light compauy filed a protest,  against the granting of thc petition on  the ground, it is understood, that it  ���������would work, an injustice to that company  providiug the overflow from the dam  should uot amount to 200 inches. The  commissioner is expected to render his  decision this afternoon or Monday.  -"  -is PIN ALLY ADOPTED.  Koad  The Spokane Falls  way has changed its  TO ENJOIN THE OITY.  Mr.    Davies    Wants   the  Water  Service  Construction Stopped.

Reserved seats aro on sale ' at the  Cauada Drug and Book Co., In all the  cities where the ladies have appeared,  the press notices give' evidence that  they were enthusiastically received.  Miss World is said to have a voice  quite beyond the average and capable  of grand opera." In addition to the  volume and richness, the charm of her  voice is very much enhanced by a  peculiarity which she possesses, of  imparting expression, feeling and  sentiment to her songs. ._  Miss La Dell's histronic talent is of  the highest order and her dramatic  action magnetic and exceptionally  strong.  The Cloud Removed.  There is reason to believe1 that the  cloud that has rested for several  months 'on the titles to lots in Ymir  and Erie, has ab last been removed,  and the deeds of purchasers of lots in  those towns can now be registered.  The solicitors for the Nelson & Fort  Sheppard railway at Victoria, Messrs.  Bodwell, Irving & Duff, have advised  D. C. Corbin, president of the road to  that effect.  & Northern rail-  time nnd is now  leaving Nelson nt!):20 a.m. instead of 9:10  a.m. as heretofore. Trains arrive at 5:35  p.m. instead of 5:15.

The grand jury in the case of William  Ryan, the contractor at Ymir, who robbed  himself of $1,802 and was held on a  charge ��������� of perjury for giving false testimony before Justice Buckworth at Ymir,  did not return a true bill. The defendants bondsmen were released.  The dance held at the Fire ITall on  Thursday evening under the auspices  of the Nelson Brass Band and Orchestra was a decided success, about  50 couples being present.

THAT TEMPLETON INTERVIEW.  The newspapers of British Columbia  are still writing about that famous  interview of Tue Minek, in which  Mayor Templeton of Vancouver  talked unwisely in relation to the  supposed political conditions that  surround Representative Cotton of  Vancouver. Regarding thc statement  made to our reporter by the Vancouver mayor, the Victoria Colonist has  this to say:  "We venture to say that no more  damaging statement was ever made  against a public man, that is, speaking  politically, of course, and that Mr.  Cotton remained silent under it, for 15  days after it was made public and  for 11 days after his co-worker, in  Opposition called on him to explain it,  is as damaging to his political reputation as the statement itself. On Sunday, the 20th inst., there appeared in  the News-Advertiser a column and a  half interview with Mr." Templeton  and a short editorial purporting to  deal with this matter. Both deserve  a place among the curiosities of political literature. To understand the  matter properly it is necessary to bear  in mind that the Nelson Miner, in  whicli the statement of Arr. Templeman appeared, was, and is, the most  aggressive of the Opposition weekly  papers. When asked about the Mixer's  remarks, Mr. Templeton said:  " 'I did not see the report until long  after we  left Nelson,' or I would have  returned and  spokeii to the reporter  again.'  "We note that Mr. Templeton here  ��������� does not pretend to deny the substan-  ���������tail accuracy-of-the^MiNEiHnterview,-  but,  on oiije contrary, must be taken  in  usiv.71 these  words to endorse it as  correct." Therefore   the Times of this  -- city was wholly justified in calling on  him for an explanation, and the papers  supporting    the    government    were  warranted in their comments.  ,,lfc also  shows the absolute falsity of the following statement made by the News-  Advertiser in regard lo the last named  papers: - ...  " 'Tliey fastened with avidity on an  item- in a brief report of an interview  in a Nelson paper with Air, Templeton  during his recent visit to that city,  and from it constructed a most wonderful piece of fiction,'  "We say this is wholly untrue  becaurioall that, was done by thc  papers referral to \\\is to quote Mr.  Templelon's language as reported iu  ment made in 1S9I, not to enter the  present government, he has ' shown  himself to be a hundred times more  disloyal than we ever imagined he  could be. For his own political credit  wc hope that the date of the option  was some time in 1S97. Wo say that  if Mr. Cotton bas been bound during  the whole of the present year by a  a pledge, which he understood and  whicli his associates understood prevented him from entering the ministry  or doing anything that would contribute to its support, he is the most  extraordinary sample of a public man  that ever occupied a scab in a legislature."  "Anything to attract attention from  the political questions of the day,"  seems to be thc motto of the Colonist.  Of what moment to the voters who  are interested in the questions now  seasonable is the garrulousness of a  Vancouver solon?  The editors of the Coast newspapers  are convicting themselves of egotism.  The genealogical tree of Editor Lugrin  of the Colonist, the liberalism of  Editor McLngan of the Vancouver  AVorld, the political sins ofpmission  and commission that attach to the  personality of Editor Cotton of the  News-Advertiser and tlie political  acumen of Editor Templeman of the  Times aro subjects of little moment to  the over-taxed and misrepresented  voters of British Columbia, no matter  what these brilliant warriors of the  pen my believe to the contrary, and  The Miner begs leave to move the  previous question���������the conduct of the  Turner administration during its term  of life and reign.  min F. Butler in 1884; it opposed  Cleveland in 1888 and in 1892; it urged  gold democrats to bunch their hits on  McKinley in 1890."  The California press hns begun to show  a proper amount of indignation because  Durrant is still unhung. Quite a little  army of thugs nnd cutthroats is accumulating in the California prisoDB, their  lawyers holding back the enforcement of  their sentences until the supreme court  at Washington shall have passed upon  the Durrant case. There is very little  doubt what the decision of tbat court  will be���������when it gets ready in all probability it will say that it has no jurisdiction. Then Durrant will be hanged and  California be purified. Justice in California has beeu made a fool of a long  time. But you can't fool justice indefinitely.  A DIVIDEND DEOLABE0.  PKOFBSSlOJiAI.

DANA.  The Whitewater Mine UUtrlbHtei $34,M*  tn Stockholders.  On "Wednesday of last week a dividend  of $24,000 wns declared at Kaslo by tbe  directors of the Whitewater mine. As a  total of $40,000 in dividends had been  previously declared, tbis brings tbe total  to date, up to $64,000.  This does not represent the profits up  to ��������� date for in addition to the dividend  92,000 was put into the working fund,  and ot the ore shipped prior to Wednesday's declaration 42 cars yet remained to  be heard from. These cars net on an  average $1,000 each, so tbat there is now  842,000 due from smelter returns uot  yet in.  Tbe shipments for October will run  over 50 cars, and in tbe mine there is do  apparent decrease in the amount of ore  in sight, so that regular dividends may  be expected in future.  Charles A. Dana, editor of the New  York Sun died at 1:20 o'clock Sunday  afternoon, at his home at Glencoe,  Long Island. He commenced his  newspaper career in 1847 as a member  of the editorial staff of the New York  Tribune and his remarkable intellectual power and extraordinary editorial gifts, in time placed him at the  licad of his profession. He gained a  high character as a public man and  although frequently mentioned for  political honors, he preferred the editorial career in which he made himself  prominent. However, there is another  phase to the question and the Anaconda Standard in relating it says:  '* '(The obituary notices that take full  account of the career of Charles A.  Dana will refer to his relations with  General Grant. That Mr. Dana, aftPr  his trip to Vicksburg, rendered a signal service by sending reports tp  Washington in Grant's favor, is unquestionable true. The relations of  theso two men were uniformity pleasant until some years after the close of  the wiir. Mr., Dana ���������was an impulsive  man; ho wrongfully carried his personal matters into the columns of his  newspaper. At one time he considered  that-Piesident-Grant���������had-affronted -  him; thenceforth Dana's warfare on  Grant was one of .the most remarkable  to which any public man in this country was every exposed.  "To a degree it was the same with  Cleveland���������thc Sun. carried its criticism of the ex-prcsideut .to a point  which sometimes seemed not to observe thc line that separates criticism  from abuse. Tbe story may not be  true, but it certainly was woll understood at the ,time ���������when Cleveland  became governor, that a request for  tho appointment of a well known member of the Sun's force as n member of  the governor's staff was ignored by  Cleveland. Certain it is that, almost  immediately thereafter, thc Sun became Cleveland's critic. Many of Governor Cleveland's performances, during bis term at Albany, were so unus-  C. V. Smith KetanM.

"Then follows a vcrv weak reference  - to a  May  innocently  pledge signed by Mr. Cotton on  0, 180-1. and-Mr. Templeton  goes on, after" ii lot of  explanation which explains nothing,  to say that he cannot conceive why  the Nelson Mineu's report should 'be  intended to mean more than it conveys.' We submit that it lias not been  used by any one as conveying any  more than it conveys, or any more  than Mr. TempletonVstatcmcnt, niade  under the coaching of the News-  Advertiser, conveys. We also submit  that, if this pledge, was of the nature  it is now represented to be, that is, a  mere general pledge of Opposition, the  demand, made by the Times of this  city and above quoted,, is absolutely  inexplicable. We further submit that  if Mr. Cotton was bound by anyagree-  "The very large proportion of: the  democi ills of New York shared the  belief, in 1S8-1, that Cleveland was nn  utterly unfit man to be president���������he  could not possibly have been elected  to the oilice of governor of the state  again.' Hut there was that mammoth  majority of 1SS2; the New Yorkers  knew that, on his merits,-Cleveland  was not entitled to any part of it-^  bickerings and; as it tuvned out, unfortunate misunderstandings, and the  sequel of the Conkling fight,1 and tlie  disorders and disorganization of the  republican party, gave the big majority to Cleveland���������any democrat good  or bad would have scored in that year.  But the famous majority made Cleveland a hero in Texas and Arkansas and  Kentucky and Indiana and everywhere, in fact, except in New" York  and his nomination for the presidency  couldn't be stopped.

Meanwhile tho man and woman had  climbed tho hill anfl. now paused outsido  ������,' cottago that stood In a small garden'in  which un watered stocks and carnations  drooped, whilo from'the. closed door no  sound of children's voices issued, all being still and silent as'tho grave.  Something seemed'ta tako Tamminy  by tho throat; wild thoughts of treachery, of crliiio even, flashed through lier  brain. Ho had killed tho children. This  was his revengo on her; this . the reason  of his docility, when turning to him as  her god, and expecting but scant mercy,  he had como out to bring her home.  Tottering over tho threshold, only tho  empty room greeted hor. He had only  sont theni away. And then sight returned  to her eyes, for behind tho door in their  wooden cod lay fast asleep a rosy boy and  girl, with tho tears nob yet dry upon  their cheeks. She dropped like a stono  beside them, and with a sob' laid her  head down upon their, little innocent  breasts. How long ago was it that slie  had left this puro haven to be a strangcr-'s  light o' love? How long since she had  nourished evil thoughts against the man  Who, God-like, had resisted tho world's  command to stone and cast lier out, and  had forgiven and reinstated her in her  home? : .  -" Steve had set down thc bundle, and  uow was kindling the lire wid filling the  kettle to make tea. He had got through  ins agony ' during those hours when in  the deserted home his children had wept  and called out in vain for "Mammy."  Who shall say what memories crowd the  heart of the man who yet loves the woman who has. betrayed him, what visions  of her innocent youth, what, piteous  thoughts plead for her in his breast,  while her children's eyes cry out to him  for forgiveness of her siiff-1 Even though  it be as scarlet lie cannot in a moment  unwind the strands that mutual,love and  habit have bound about tlieir lives, and  tho man in him being stronger than the  judge, he hearkens more to the exhortations of mercy than'those commands to  vengeance that only those of austerely  pure life may venture to obey.  God kept his own reckoning, and Steve  knew that God had chosen in this instance to make one man and one woman  even.  So  when   Steve   received   Tamminy's  message, he did  not   hesitate   for a mo  ment what" he   should   do.     Ho   went  straight out and fetched her horoe.sayiug  no"word,"good or bad, concerning- psise cr  'future, as they came. Ho had taken her  back. Could she over fortret his tall flg-.  lire striding. swiftly through the coombe  and "shouldering her bundle, making a gesture toher to.follow, till on,entering the  village ho had fallen back aud walked  beside her.   -  ��������� And now tlie moment had come when  they must look-in each- other's eyes,  wheu he must show all noble as one who  forgives by-reason of the Godhead that  Is in liim, or ��������� pitiful as the weak flesh  that shuts his eyes to the vileuess of  what ho lovos, lest that delicate morsel  of pleasure bo taken from it- and he be  left in hungering. Tamminy had picked  up and put on the cotton apron thai;  sho had flung down, how many yoars  .ago? when she thought that in throwing  off her duty to him she could throw off  ���������mother's lovo also and all .that a good  .'woman holds dear.  And now Steve an 1 she were sitting  opposite each other at the tablo, and between 'thom tho little fair heads were  bobbing over their mugs of milk and tho.  childish voices worn chattering.' It was  all just as though sho had nevor been  a^ay at all,'and already-the children's  grief was forgotten and,their littlo world  was full of ..joy again. But Tamminy  neither ato nor drank, and seeing that  ���������Steve's meal was also but pretense, she  lifted her head at last and spoke.  "Eh, Steve," she said, pitifully, "why  did 'ce take me back?"  "For the children's sake," he said, but  sho shook her head, for his voice did not  ring true.       |(,  "Eh, but I misdoubt me you'ro. play-  in' wi' mc," she said, sadly. "G'ce 1110  my punishment, lad; liao it out wi'- me.  but don't go about softly,, wishin! mo  .dead. Well enough I know I ha' bruk  your love, but whilos ago 'twas you that  bruk mine. Au' I daurna say ought to  'ee ' or bo jealous of 'ee again, for I:vo  ta'cn away the right to.say anythin'."  ���������"Tis ill work talkin' o' love atwixt  ���������you and mc," he said, roughly. "You  look after tho-little ones, I'll look after  tlie work, an' the shed'll do for me to lie  in, an' to take our bite an1 sup together  won't poison us." -  He had risen and was looking out at  his nets. His man's world had to bo  faced and conquered, and ho meant to  get over it at once, and start fair and  square with the now life in the morning.  Turning in the doorway he looked back  to where she stood, her littlo ones clinging about her knees, .eyeing hiin with  hostile , glances, conscious that.in somo  way ho was hurting "Mammy."  "Let things bide," ho said with a  sternness that well became him, and tho  woman's heart. thrilled, fbr.-he was mas-'  tor aliko of himself and of her. , "I've  put 'co back in your own' place, an' the  man or woman who says nay to that '11  nnswer to 1110 for lt, but if ever your  lover comes sneakin' round, I'll kill the  pair o' 'ee���������that will I afore God.' *  The door closed sharply, but tho echo,  the manner of his words remained bo-  hind him, and with-a sudden wild gesture of astonished joy, "Aw, .but he's  jealous," she said in awe-struck tone?;  then snatched up the children in a sudden exuberance of .joy and 'gave herself  up to a -feast of love with them that only  ceased when they were abed and asleep.  She oamo' slowly down the stairway,  binding up her disordered hair as she  camo; ^ then, in the middle of the room,  suddenly throw out her grand arms with  a~ gesture .of- profonndost* content, gazing  around lier-as if the humble" room were a  palace and its. contents beautiful beyond  compare. A shephered and shepherdess  in delft stood on tho chimney shelf, one  of Steve's "fairings" during courtship,  and Tamminy picked them both up aud  kissed them heartily, then went around  tho place touching this and that homely  articlo of everyday use, with keenest  pleasure, .for every, pot and pipkin formed  a link in tho chain that .bound her to  her old life,- once so vilesome, but now  dear and beautiful in her eyes. No matter under -.'whf.t conditions, this was  home, and;but a few hours ago she was,  an outcast,under yonder sky, hungering  for 'hor .children, and .with only tho  mercy of oue-man to  come 'between her  .and.hell And_li'o-had-not-passed-hcr_by.-  Chrlst himself had not shown ��������� a moro  divino forgiveness' than did this poor  fisherman upon whom Tamminy in her  lawful despair,, or, as others said, in her  hardihood, had cried out,-.and not in  vain, for he had come to her instantly,  and by- walking beside her through thc  villago mutely made her quarrel' with  tho world around.  * And now he had goneg out to face gibo  and sneer, and Steve's pride had always  been his besetting sin, and blows would  1)0 struck and ill-blood gotten between  hini and his fellows, but tho women's  tongues ho could not silence. Cassandry's  least of all." v  Well, -.they wero even now, thought  Tamminy, and laughed harshly. ��������� That  was the fatal mistake a woman made  when she revenged herself on a 'man,  she only brought herself down to his  level and that . of the other woman,  whereas sho on thc - right side of the  hedge may suffer indeed, but with such  suffering as winnows her soul pure.  And then Tamminy smiled.  "-Aw, bub he's jealous," sho said in" a  tone of huge content, then.turned to go  at her cleanlng-up as if sho loved it, and  haviug mado all as neat as a new pin  nnd put Steve's bread and cheese out  against his return, she disappeared into  tho little lean-to that he had built  against tho liou.se, and soon a.great com:',  motion was to be heard inside, and dust"  ilew through tho keyhole and spread  itself over the sanded floor.  For all tho odds and-ends of a fisherman had gono iuto that rubbish shop,  and now they had to bo turned out or  decently hidden. Tamminy was almost  as black as a coal when, at last sho  emerged, and, having washed off somo  of tho dirt, disappeared up the stairway,  returning with first ono thing, then another, a mattress being one of the most  important Item?,.and when this was disposed of. and fair white sheets and  lalaukets added, Tamminy stood back ro  'look at her, handiwork, then stopped and  pressed her lips to tho pillow wiicre  Steve's head was to lie.  "Aw, but I'll make it up to 'ee, my  .lad," she said with a sob, then resumed  her work, and when all was dono and'  comfort reigned she took one last journey, and eanie back dimpling with a j  looking-glass that she propped up against  the wail, and which she further embellished by- a faded daguerrotype representing herself at sixteen.  "He can thraw it away if he've got a  mind to," she said, chuckling like a  mischevious child at sight of its own  work, and it was at" this moment that  Cassandry, prowling round, or attracted  by a light shining through a chink in  the boards, peeped in.  ''Aw, but she've g������t no   shame!" said  Cassandry as Tamminy, carrying a light  in her hand,  disappeared   into  thc   cottage.  Half an hour afterwards  Steve  came  lh . head   foremost   and    flung- himself  spent and bleeding into a chair.  "M'appen they'll let her alono now,"  be muttered, fiercely, as ho glanced round  the cottage, so disturbed yesterday, now  restored to its usual purity, with his  supper set, liis pipe aud 'baccy beside it,  and the one comfortable chair tho place  afforded drawn close up to tho tablo. But  the hurt In tho man's soul was .too deep  yet to be soothed by bodily comfort, and  for a long whilo he sat with head buried  in his hands, living over again in agony  all tho events of thc past few weeks. It  was dark night now, and.was not some  unquiet step moving near at hand, something that held one hand to a heart nerve  that throbbed and throbbed in pain?  Presently ho took thu light and throw  open tiie door of tho lean-to, starting  back at sight of tho neat bed chamber  revealed.  "Eh, but she've stripped herself that I  may" lio soft," he .mustered, and tho  woman who watched from without saw  his wandering "glance fall on the faded  daguerrotype, that after a moment's hesitation he pickc-.l up aud looked at -furtively, as one ashamed. '"Tis an Innocent face,!' ho s.ild aloud. "God's curso  on him' who spoiled it, and on him as  let her. be led into temptation," he added,  turning about with tho picturo still in  his hand. Not a sound camo from overhead. Shading thc light with his hand,  lio climbed tho stairs, treading on tiptoo  and moving like a thief in tho night.  . Tho stripped bed looked naked in tho  distance. On.the floor, with her head  pillowed on .the breasts of her children  as they slept on their low couch besido  her and one arm thrown about them,  Tamminy slept. Tho woman out in tho  garden for all tho warm summer night  shivered as sho waitsd in her jealous  agony, watching with sickening impatience for tho gleam of tho returning  candle.  At last it came. Steve reappeared "in  thc doorway - and began to throw his  clothes off for the night, but iu the  midst kneeled down and prayed.  '.' God!" he said audibly; "forgive her.  tO God! do thou   forgive   me,  a sinner."  Ci'ssandry stole away. She was far  enough from the heart and lips of Steve  that night. Yet when he prayed for himself he should have prayed for her.  CHAPTER II.  The little Ashing village of Yale, innocent of sewerage "savo what ran down  .the stream on ono side of its long, unsavory strcot, actually boasted-a church,  ���������to which tho-fishing population, went,  clean for once, bnt still redolent of that  smell of fish that in Yale was never entirely forgotten. ��������� j  The K. A.'s and lesser painter folk,  who made tho place headquarters at  some.period or other of their existences,  thought nothing of tho smell, only they  objected to living on. tho origin of it,  and "on days when no butcher's meat  was obtainable, bid fair to die from a  surfeit of crabs, but invariably recovered.  Church theu being an institution, on  thc especial Sunday following Tamminy's  elopement and return tho' congregation  was "well seated and the advent of parson momentarily expected, when a ripple  of excitement, beginning just inside the  church dnor, spread, with extraordinary  rapidity to the "very altar steps, ns Dr.  Troveninek looked down the aisle to discover thc cause of it.                  <,  Thc cause was not far to seek, with  hundreds of angry eyes to guide hini,  and there on a bench reserved mainly  for casuals^ sat Tamminy, with her two  'young children aud Stove, his face stern  and controlled, besido her. Dr., Trcven-  nick saw the whole thing - in a flash-  more,.ha grasped it as another might not  have dmie, for ho*knew Stove and Tamminy both,their characters making a real  refreshment to him in his .labors about  the place. Both were so-noble, so apart  from tho rest of the fisher folk, and both,  alas!, had fallen, the one in secret, the  -other injiight of'God and man, and ttcy  had come hero ^humbly, as sinners, to  sit beyond the palo of. tho righteous and  endure the stare of tho scornful, because  in their simple hearts they must .worship  evcrTthough they sinned. Dr, Trovonnick  did not preach the7' sermon that day he  had previously prepared. Instead he took  thet text, "Let him who is without sin  amongst you cast the'first stone," and  without allusion to the woman dragged  beforo Christ, ho preached in a way that  mado old sins wriggle in men's minds,  old faults show naked in virtuous women's  eyes, and when lie had dono there was  scarce a man or ���������woman there who felt  equal to-turning the glances on Tamminy they had been clioko full of when  service began.  Onco Tamminy-lifted up" her eyes and  met Cassandry's, full. It was an eloquent look, saying much, nnd beforo tlmt  glance tho woman, respectable in the eyes  of tho world seemed to shrink up and  change place with tlio wrongdoer, and  Martha, whom littlo escaped, chuckled'  in her heart..  "Maybo 'twill bo your "turn next,"  sho said to herself as sho joined tho  group gathered in the churchyard to dis- j  cuss "parson's sermon," a group com- ;  posed mainly of women, as Steve's fl.-;t j  iiad taught silence to many a wagging \  ���������tongue during tho past few days.  - j  "Aw," said   Cassandry,    "he've   took !  her back sure enough, an' ho   stands   by ;  her when she brazens it out at   worship. ���������'  for ho   bo .a   man"���������her,, voico   swelled |  out in a noto^ot  curiously ' mingled   ad- j  miration and   personal   pride���������"but   he  -don't lovo her no   moro���������an'    sho  upstairs with  tho children, an  shifts in tho lean-to by nights."  "An' how might 'ee be knowin' that,  less 'ee'd sneaked round to see?" inquired  Martha.with her pawkiest air.  "An'"don't tho back 'o our garden run  down to the back o' Steve's?" inquired  Cassandry, with' arms akimbo.- ''An'  can't I seo tbo light a-shinin' through at  .nights?" .    .  "If 'ee was mindin' yer hou������o - 'eo  wouldn't havo time for that," said another woman, drily. -"You'd best keep  more within"door till Pete comes back or  there'll bo a reckonin' 'ee won't want  to pay," and nodding her head significantly sho went her way.  Meanwhile Steve and Tamminy had g.me  back to tho divided  lifo - in - which   they  constantly met, yet never touched hands.  All that love could "do for   liis   comfort  Tamminy did; all that he  could  .do   fur  j hers and the children's bodily welfare  ho  j was indefatigable in doing,   and   cut   of  j his little   store   he   had   bou:;ht   a   new  I mattress that ho drove ten miles to fetch  i and smuggled in after  dark, carrying it  j upstairs without  a   word,   sleeping, per-  ! haps, all thc better for knowing that =he  lay as soft as ho.  And yet with all this mutual observance, with the real, deep lovo there was  for each other in their hearts, and the  strong' tie tha lovely, innocent; chil.'jvn  made between them, the self-con!-.''! on  L-nth sides was so great that the attitude  bsSwecn them was always one. of dignity.  and listen ns Cassandry mightno sound-  of strife ever issued., from tho' dwelling.  And.the day was to work,- to -smile,' to  show pluck iu, but what' of the night,'  when apart each tossed and turned, and  tho woman wept and the man cursed  himself as being tho root of this evil  thing that had como upon him?  Leaning   against   tho  boards    in   tho  outer darkness, hor eye' to   the' crovlce,';  of which  Steve was ignorant, Cassandry  would watch him till tho   light  was extinguished,   thnn   linger   on,' hearkening  to   his   slight   groans and cries, longing  with a passion that shook her liko a reod  to bid him unbar the   door   and   let hor  take liis head upou her breast  and comfort him.    Onco ho seemed   to   fool - her ���������  near   and   started   up with an   oath   to  chase her away, bub before ho   could un- ,,  bar tho door, she had gono, and tho dark  cottago on tho   otlier  sido  of   the   fence    i  swallowed her up.    "If   I thought 'twas  she I'd   mako shift'ln   the- kitchen " ho  muttered a.s he went buck to.be:!,  but for    -  many eights after that   scaro   Cassandry  never came near-the place.  , PART II.���������CHAPTER I.  "Tamminy!",  Tho word camo in a fierce whisper  from tho wood behind her as she sat ou  tho cliff, knitting, her children playing  at a littlo distance from her.  "Aw," she said calmly, iind without  turing her bend, "an' what might 'ee be  want-in' o' mc?" ��������� ^  Tlio man who had called to hor emerged  into, tho open, and in his light summer  clothes and with n straw haft at tho back  of hisihuad came round with an injured  expression and stood before her.  "So you are here," ho said, "and a  pretty dance you've led me."  She laughed and nourished at him tho  stocking heel with whicli sho was busy.  "For.Steve,' she said exultingly, "and  best ho ou the lookout, iny man, for if  ho catches 'eo, he'll pick 'ee up liko u  maggot and drop 'ce over the cliffs."  "He has taken ynu back?" said the  man, as if stupefied, for those fisher.folk  were beyonti him. Had they no primitive  passions���������hato, jealousy,, revenge; was  even lovo unknown to them?  "If you wero so fond of your Steve,  why didn't you stick to him?" he said,  savagely.  "Aw," said Tamminy, letting her  scornful glance travel over liim from head  to foot, "do 'ee think mau an', wife can't  have a word or two .wi'out a" stranger  cuttiii' in beween 'em? An' becauso yoii  wa= n lord an' thought 'ee , could paint a  bit an' I'd make a good modd'c, 'ee was  alius danylin1 after, me���������an' 'co just  comoi' thu nick o' time an' took advant- t  age o' mo, as a good mau 'ud scorn to do  'an' like tho fool" I was, tho' I wouldn't  listen afore, I listened thon and 1 went -  wi' 'eo."  "And having dono so, you .belong to  me, not him," ho said, mortified ns a  man, but thrilled as an artist by tho perfection of her beauty, flawless in the  strong lijrht of the sun. The coppers-red,,  ot her hair, tho exquisite coloring of skin  that goes only with such hair; the grand  lines of her throat and0 figure1' and the  black-lashud, black-browed blue eyes���������  where had he. beforo met with such loveliness combined in one woman?  "Aw,"- said Tamminy, calmly,- "you'd  best go, yonr ways and paint your pictcrs,  and doan't look .for no moro moddlos  .'mongst poor fisher folk lilto wo. When  'co asked mc to set to 'eo 1 never guessed  th' end.

'"Tis a  lio   that   Steve   ha"   forgiven  her," whispered   tlie   fierce,   black eyed,   -  Murillo-likc-. girl, "an"   if   'ce   go   away,  come back, an' 'cc'il  get yer pieter yet."  More   conversation   followed   between  , the worthy pair, and ir. was with .;: light  I heart that Ca-s.iudry  by and by desoend-  : ed the winding path that led to   thc village, while   Lord Allandale   struck   out  ; across the cliffs in the direction of Trask.  rteve had been out fishing all day, and-  as lie ca;:ie in witli the   tide   tho   beauty  and p'eacu nf   the evening hour smote on u  his senses and   his   heart was lifted   up,  1 ouly to be da-hod   again earthward by a  ] sudden thought.  i For so it is that a man will sin, yet in  ; his own eyes be clean, yet if bis wife fol-  j low his example and sin also, there is no  j Jordan that will  wa-h   him   clean,   and  ��������� the shame and defilement of her sin will  I cat like a corroding ru=t into   his   heart, -  ; turning the joy of life to   ashes   between  : his teeth. -Therefore, Steve took no pleas-  ��������� ure in nearing tiie home nestled in with  ���������' its back to the cliffs and tiie half-opened  j dtjor, iyi!h tho two curly heads peeping  i around it for "daddy,"    He wanted   liis  i s  !

C. SATURDAY, OCT. 23, 1897.  V !  I.  ���������   I.  girl Tamminy as she had been before a  cursed woman came between them, and  that could never be, ho thought, and his  head sank as he went, and the neighbors  nodded and said: "His spirit is broakin'  at last."  Thero was-an unusual liaht in Tamminy's eyo, a brilliant flush' on her  chepk, that evening, which Steve was  swift to note, and account for���������she had  seen her lover in spite of his warnings,  nnd would undoubtedly seo him again.  He read the intention in every quickened movement of her lithe figure, iu  the wlldncss of the laugh which sho  miugled with tho children's, and thc  man's heart sickened within him, though  more for herself than others.  ' For there had been times when, looking in his wife's face or wntelilnjt her  with that minuto ob.'-ervatiou that is informed only by jealous love, lio had not  ���������rdarod to think of her as sinful, and if  ever a man should know tho dilTorcnru  between a good and a bad woman it  should bo ho, who had so intimately  known a typical instance of each. But  to-night Steve realized that tho world's  verdict was just, that' the reckless fever  which had swept her away before was in  her veins again, and that for the fake of  the little ones, if not for his, a strong  hand must bo put out to save her from  herself. A dcrcliofc, she had yet come  into safe anchorage within the harbor of  home, and now she was willing to cross  tlie raging bar onco more and put out in  her frail cockle shell to sea, there to go  to pieces, as, God help them, women,  and men, ay, did every day.  He sat with bowed head at tho table  listening to her light foot as sho put  the children' to bed overhead, to her  voice as she talked with them, and the  thought went through him that sho would  take them with her whon she went, and  that ho would come home one day to  iind the placo empty. Had she, indeed  repented of leaving them behind? Had  her return only boon a ruse to regain  ' possession of them and then rejoin lier  lover?  Tamminy's face gavo the lio to the  thought, as she just then appeared, het  face rosy with the littlo ones', kisses,  their simple prayers still sounding in  her ears. Seeing him sitting there sc  still, her face ���������changed; but intensely  conscious as each might bo of the other,  the boundaries of mutual reserve were  never overstepped, so she merely took up  the half-knitted stocking and sat down  by tho open door to work.  Novor did a woman look more lovable  than sho at her homely occupation, and  it suddenly flashed into" Steve's mind  that if she were going to leave him  again sho would not be knitting him  that stocking. And the words ho had  been coing to say to her died on hi?  lips, and even in thought bocainc sacrilege as ho looked on her face. So thoy  sat silently on till tho gloom became  ;- darkness, ' nnd with a s=igh Tamminy  arose and put her work away. Somehow  in that quiet hour Steve and she had  come nearer together than they had ever  como since a.certain day when Cassandry  and she had bad a cet an conversation���������  and Lord Allandale had profited by the  results. i>  CHAPTER  II.  ������������������ Through tho chink in the lean-to a  little stream of light fell on Cassandry's  dark face as sho looked in to soo Steve  carefully-placing under his' pillow the  little daguerrotype Tamminy had sot tip  besido his glass. ''  ' Cassandry's eyes flashed, and she  knocked at the door, not loudly, but  imperatively, and Steve's voice called  out "Who's there?'' from inside.'  ��������� ; She answered by knocking again, but  when he remained   silent   she   disguis'od  - her voice and demanded entry on a matter of the most vital  importance to him:  -self. "Aw, 'tis you, then?" said Steve,  with infinite scorn in his voico. "J  thawt as much; but 'ee may knock forever���������'ee don't come in here.

"'Taln't Mike  that's ,the on'y fool about his' wife, foi  Tamminy's just waitin' her opportunity  to slip off - again wi' her fancy mat]  what she spent all th'.' afternoon on the  cliffs wi' this afternoon while you was  llshin'."      ....  She wished that sho could see his face.  The silonco on the other side of thc dooi  was profound."  . "If 'eo don't belicvo me, go out wi:  ' the boats .to-morrow mornin', and slir  home agen an'- up to the cliff beyond  'Creation Ground, an' you'll seo what  you'll see, an' what yon'vo forgiven nu!  taken back an' sot up as a 'sample tc  me."  . "Listen!" said Steve, sternly. "Whatever my wife is or may be is our work���������  your's" an' mine. She were as good t  girl as ever stepped when I took her,  nn' would be now but that when she found  out that I; who'd sworn to' be faithful  toher.we.ro untrue she just' couldn't  boar ���������-it, an', licin' ' so high-spirited,  throwed herself on the first man- that  como along. But she repented quick, an'  I'll niver believe sho'd do it again,'- an'  if she wanted to I wouldn't let her."'-  .. Cassandry laughed insultingly.  '"Tis well to ha' a good stomach foi  daintier folks'"leavin's," she said, "fui'  'tis ill work.for a man whose trade lies  to sea to mind a gay wife that flaunts  ashore."  "Silence, woman!" cried Steve furiously. "Who iver saw Tamminy "flaunt;  She alius stayed to home an' minded that  an' the littlo uns. 'Twas the man that  sought out her, not her him. If _'ee had  been as backward wi' the, men as she  there'd be two sinners less in this warld  to-night."  "Eh," said Cassandry   piteously; "bnt  - we was sweethearts together aforo iver  Tamminy came���������a stranger. 'Ee liked  me well enough till she thrawed the spell  over 'ee."  - "No," said Steve decisively. "I niver  luv'd but one woman i' my life, an'  that's Tamminy. Anv if she did wrong  a hundred times over I'd stick to her  through thick and thin. An' knowin'  -how I luv'd her, why couldn't 'ee let me  .be? An,' she away an' all, an' me, to  my sliaiii?, drunk. What have she don6  worse nor mo? An' often I misdoubt mn  if she havo iver sinned , at all when I  look upon her sweet, innocent face."  Ho heard a slight sound behind him,  and. turning, saw his wife, with arms  outstretched, her faco "all transfigured  .with passionate love.  "Aw, Steve, lad, "she said in a whisper, "but you're about right. - I ha'  si don������ 're no wrong. How could I have  come back to 'eo if I had?"  He leaped Into her arz^ and as they  clung together the candle, splattered "&s4  went out. On the othor sido of the door  they heard a faint moaning; as of some  wild animal tamed by pain, and Tamminy shuddered'as she drew him away  through the darkness into the kitchen,  wl.ere they sat down side by side. |  ''Av,r, poor soull" sho said, "she loves  'ee. But when she como here crowln' au' .  tollln' mc of all that had passed atween  'eo it bruk my heart, for I thought 'ee  luv'd her back, an' how could I bide  along wi' 'ce after that? I couldn't  spoak, for her shame were your'n, an'  th' little uns didn't count for nothin'. I  wero just mad and fit for Bedlam, nn'  th' devil sent th' painter chap to my door  that very day���������ho tried to make love to  me afore���������an' I told him I was going  away for good. An' lie up an' says,  '.Will yo' como wi' mc?' 'Yes,' says I,  an' throwed off my apron (the childron  were asleep) an' made up a bundle, an'  walked down th' village wi' un as bold  as bniss. But folks knew he wore  makin' a pieter o' me, an' wo got off  wi'out nobody hollcrln' artor us, an'  walked 'cross the cliffs to Trask. "This  Is my wife,' says he at his inn, an' they  smiled quiet-like, an' bowed an' scraped  an' seemed to know mc���������as well they  might, scein' th' sketches o' mo littered  all about th' place. But I saw him pick  up a glass an' look out t' see for th'  fishiu' fleet, and then���������then I heard tbe  children callin', an' there was you  waitin" your tea. An' when ho tried to  make love t' me���������aw, rton't 'co think I  know what love, real lovo, be? "Tis the  music wc women make to ono man's  voico���������like the danco drawn out o' the'  children's feet by tho playin' pipes,  whether they will or no; an' what we  loved first we love last, for that is so,  lad, that somethin' draws us to a man,  an' wc may fall out wi' him an' hate  hini, but if we be true wiinmin we  comes back to what wo trcwly loved at  first, spite o' all that''s gono between."  "Eh, but there was my fall!" groaned  Steve, his strong arm.; wound fast about  lier.  "Aw," she said simply, "you was a  man. An' I bo but a woman, an' such  things ain't for we. I thought I could  do it, but I just couldn't. Something  rose up in me that wasn't me an' you  might ha' cut mc in pieces but I couldn't.  They heard it as they talked, though  no stir of wind was abroad���������that low.  moaning sound thnt walled round the  houso like some outcast thing which  longed to enter, but knew Itself barred  out from love and joy. And involuntarily Tamminy clutched Steve's hand tight.  "Eh, Tamminy," said Steve, sadly;  "but I thought thero was two o'-us sln-  ucrs, an' thero be on'y one. How will ye  bide to put up wi' me, an: the neighbors'  scorn���������for they'll nivor believe any thin'  but what's ill o' 'ee?"  "There's. Mike," said Tamminy when  all was quiet again. "He just dotes on  Cassandry, an' if you wasn't hero to bf-  always measured wi' him p'raps she'd  come to be fond o' him 1' time. It's  wnn.iPi'ful how a woman '11 get us������������d t<:  a man in time. An' nobuddy '11 ever believe i'- me here now, so 1 was thinkin',  lad, that if 'ce could bear it we'd sell up  our bit sticks an' go down Plymouth  way, where father's folks lives, and begin our married life o'er agen."  For a moment or two Steve did not  speak. He loved the fisher village. His  earliest associations, all the habits of hie  life, were bound up in it. But he loved  Tamminy moro and consented.  When he was soundly sleeping that  night Tamminy.wrapped herself in fret  cloak and sought in the garden for Cas-  stiudry, but the woman was not there.  Pushing through the little fence, she  easily gained the kitchen of thc house beyond,, in which n lamp was burning that  showed Cassandry, sunk in exhaustion on  thc settle, sound asleejTi  Cassandry lifted herself dully, thc  misery that sleep had extinguished inhei  eyes returning to them. Then, seeing  who it was, she laughed harshly,  stumbled to her feet, and, dropping a  low   courtesy, said insolently���������  "Birds o' a' feather flock together.  There ain't'much to choose betwixt Tamminy Fletcher and Cassandry Renshaw  now!" .  '���������  "That bo true enow," said Tamminy  isadly.--"There's-t!icsi'u-o'"th'���������heart- an'"  the sin o' th' body; m'appen 'tis all  alike aforo God. But I'bo. goin' 'way,  ".Cassandry, an' Steve, he bo com.n', too;  an' aforo we part I want to make fren's,  so as we can think kind o' each other,  tho' we niver meet agen."  "No," said Cassandry, - folding--, hei  arms tightly on her- breast "I wunnot.  ,,If I'was goin' wi' Steve an' you was left  behind I'll love 'eo. But.'tis you that hat  had the top o' every thin' all through, an'  lue th' leavin's. An' I'll niver forgi'e'ee,  an' I'll curso 'co to my.dvin' day!"  "There's , Mike," said Tanilrany.  "He'll be ' back any day" now, an'-he  loves every hair o' your head, an', 'twould  break his heart to.know all that's passed.  You've only-got to bo kind to him ��������� an',  make it up to him," she added pitifully.  "God knows I don't want to make 'ee n  deceitful woman, hut^whaur's the good o'  goin' to wrack and ruin o' coufe.ssin' to  what you've don' an' brenkin' a good  man's heart'?. So long as 're confess tc  God an' are roal sorry th: t's all as is  asked or expected o' a Kinnin' soul, an'  Mlikc an' you may be happy yet,specially  when the children come."  '-'An'what, o' yourself:-" said Cassandry,  waveringly, for every woman lias a natural instinet-tow.'irds saving herself from  open shame. "Ain't you to have no pun  ishinent neither? 'Tain't everybody, thai  cats'their cake an' has it."  For a full minute the two women bent  earnest gaze on each other, then:���������    "  "Eh, but, whatever 'eo" done, you be h  better woman nor I, Tamminy," "said  Cassandry. "But there's Steve to love,  'ce���������while I"��������� "She threw herself down  on the settle and gave way to a paroxysm  of grief.  Tamminy crossed ovcr'to her swiftly,  laying a gentle hand omthe bowed head.  "Eh, but it'll como to "ee, my dear."  she said, "an* when you^sec Mike happy,  an' you've got folks' respeck, an' your  children growing up, you'll forget Stove  ���������an' so God bless 'ce, Cassandry an'  good-by."  The exhausted woman did not stir.  Yet the beginning of a" new life���������a life  hard indeed but without sin or shame���������  dawned in her as Tamminy's footsteps  passed out into the night.  * * ������ * ������ *  The sea sparkled in the sun and  showed Mike's ship making for shore,  danced in the eyes of Cassandry and on  lier braided hair, as sho moved about her  cottage newly redd up against its master's return, and drew tho eyes of Steve  Fletcher as, with Tamminy beside him  and the children playing before, tliey  climbed thc steep cliff beyond which lay  the world-and.the new lifo upon which  they were to enter together. Soon they  had topped the cliff, and, looking on  each other's faces instead of back, witb  hands fast clasped together, the two sinners vanished In the haze of. light beyfcnd.  LIGHTLY'S SUCCESS.  m  if  His Wonderful Combination of  Hypnotism and Literature.  When I went into the club the other  night, I found Lightly turning over the  puges of the Christina* number of All the  World. His face would have afforded a  fine study for a picture of contentment,  and my lirst ibong'iit wus that he must  have an article or story iu the maguziuo.  For Lightly is something of a writer, nnd  whenever he gets unythiug published���������  which is not very often���������he bores us all  for waeks afterward, telling Uow it hap-  peiu-d.  Am soou as he caught sight of ine, he  beckoned ine to his table, aud I thought  tliat I was in for at least u half-hour's  punishment. But it turned out for ouce  that i'wus interested in his talk.  "Have you seen   HI"  he asked, tapping  the cover of the magazine,   and giving  a  little e;'.ger laugh as  he spoke, which con  tinned my iinpressiou  that  he must be iu  luck. c ������  "N'o,"! answered; "have you anything  in it?'  "Anything?" he almost shouted. "Why,  man, I wrote the wholn number."  At this I bt-g.ui to wonder if his brain���������  iifwr too stroug���������had uot suddenly given  way. As you well know, All the World  is one of the most conservative periodicals  ���������as I will admit that I have found to my  son o win the past���������and it wns preposterous  that it should make up a .whole number,  nud a Christmas number at"that, from the  work of one man. And it was clear to my  misd- that Lighty would not have been  tbat oue num. in any event.  While trying to think of something  quieting to" say, I took a magnz ne und  glanced over the table of contents. It was  one of Lightly's fancies���������which did hiui  no good in n literary way ���������to have a dozen  or more pet mimes. He used these iudis-  ciim.nutely, as the humor moved liim, aud  it happened that I knew most of tliem.  So you may judge of my surprise wheu i  tell you-that every poem, story, article nnd  t-ssuy in the entire magazine was signed by  somu oue of the many names that I knew  lie used. The. first was a Christmas poem,  signed G. O. Lightly. Then a Christmas  story, signed T. S. Weaver (this, he had  onco explained to ine, stood for The Story  Weaver). Then an article on "Jerusalem  ���������Nineteen Hundred Years Ago;" ���������'Christmas���������Past and Present," and the ubusI run  ot such mat. rial aa editors have fallen iuto  the habit of serving'up for the holiday  issue. None of the topic's were new, uor,  as far as I could discover iu a hasty glance,  were they treated with much brilliancy.  The signatures were all composed upon  tlie h ine puerile plan as  the  one I have  gi������'rt"i. '     -  -Poor a������ much of the stuff probably was,  I still could not believe -that Lightly had  writt'-u it all, much less secured its publi-  cuii. n in a si.igle number of All the  Word,  i turned to him for an explanation  "Draw up a chair," he said, with what  I thought au air of condescension. "lean  afford to fly high to-night, so let us have  a bird and a b 'ttie qnistly iu this corner,  while I tell you all about it.  ' 'Of course," he said; as soou as" we  were -fairly settled, "this is all on the  quiet. I should not tell even you, if yon  were not one of iny best- friends, aud if I  did uot mean present to ask a great favor  of you. Yon know," he continued, "how  people have been talk iug about tho science  of hypnotism for months pant?"'  I nodded my assent, and he went on with  ���������u uninterrupted flow of words:  . "Well." he said, "I chanced some time  ago to be thrown in contact with an adept  in this art, or science, or whatever you are  minded to cull it. I recognized at once the  value tliat a knowledge of it might be to  me in making fiction, and I asked the fellow to give me some insight into it This  he did, for a consideration, and to such  good purpose that I wns soon able to practice the science to some extent. I presently found tliat itwas not difficult for me to  gain a hypnotic influence over any man of  less robust physique thiu myself, but I  rarely attempted to use the power. -  "When I finally did, it was wholly  without premeditation, and it happened in  -this-way.-'-A-few-weeksago=-in"fa"ct'r"iu"sf  as .they were making up the Christmas  number���������I happened into the office of All  the World, and while there offered Aide-  son this poem." - Lightly put his finger ou  the printed page as he spoke, but went on  without panse:  "Aldeson put me off with some stock  remark about being full of material, of  having mo������-e thnn he could handle; and did  not even look nt the poem.... This nettled  ine considerably, aud it suddenly occurred  to me that Aldeson was a smaller man than  myself and that I ought to give him a good  thrashing for-his impudence. Theu it  camo to me all nt once that I could hypnotize him nnd make him uccept my poem.  I asked him to send his,assistant away ns I  wanted to speak to him privately. When  we were alone I nt once began the effort  to innke liim subject to my will. In less  time thiin I am telling you I had him completely under my influence, and he hnd accepted the poem and promised it the initial place in the number.  "Then the thought came to me to try my  power a little further. Calling a messenger I. sent to my rooms for a bundle of  manuscript nnd sorted out from it everything that would do for a ChriBtmas number. You know," he added, parenthetically, "that I always keep a stock of  material on hand ready for nil needs and  seasons." I took these Christmas things  np one by ono and brought them to his  attention, and he accepted each one and  made a place for it in this holiday number. Then he called his assistant iu and  gave instructions for making up the copy,-  and I took him away with me and gave  him a royal good time for a week. When  he got back to the office it was too late to  make any changes, and so yon see the  number has come out with nothing bnt  my work. And a very good number it is,  too," he concluded complseently.  "But what do you expect to gain by it?"  I asked; "the story will surely come out.  and it will do you no good, but quite the  reverse."  "You nre all wrong," replied Lightly,  quietly; "the story will not come out.  You can see that Aldeson mnst be the  last man to tell it. Aud he could have no  object in doing so, especially as the number h.is already mado such a good impression."  With tbat he took from his pocket copies  of n half dozen leading papers and reviews, and Bhowed me comments that were  not only favorable, but fluttering in the  extreme. .      -  "Paid for?" said I, not a little disgusted  with the whole business, and particularly  at being roadd a confidant of.'  "Yes," he laughed, "but it goes just the  same. And now," he added, wiih a slight  show of hesitancy, "for the other m itter."  "Go ahead," I answered, not very graciously, considering that I was dining with  him; "I might as well bear it all now."  "You asked me what 2 expected to gain  by it. You know Lettie Underwood." ~ 1  started at the name,1-'bnt nodded with what  composure I could command. "That dear  girl," said Lightly, "has promised to marry me as soon as I have won a plaoa in  literature���������in fact, as soon as I hare au  established standing with any of the laml-  inn magazines. This "settles that poiut."  To emphasize his meaning, he tapped All  the World triumphantly.  "But, surely," I said,   "you   would not  consider this fair? " You would uot be wil  ling that she should know���������"  "All's fair in love, my boy. Aud I want  you to bt> my best mau."  I managed to get off with some half  promise, and then, pleading an engage  meut, I got oat of the club as quickly as  possible and into a cab, and gave the driver th* number of Lettie Underwood's  house.  Th* dear girl���������I could have choked  Lightly for using the words;,they were in  my heart whenever I thought of her,  whicli was all the time���������was at home and  received m* with her usual sweat welcome.  But I held her at arm's length, and, with  all the sternness that I could command,  exclaimed:  "Letitia, you arc a wrstched trifler.  Give me back my heart."  "What is the matter with the poor boy  now?" she coo*d, softly.  "Matter enough. You have promised tc  marry Lightly."  "Yes," she laughed, "I remember. He  proposed to me six months ago. I told  him I would when he had made a success���������  '" "Your exact words," I said severely,  "were���������'when yon have a standing with  any of the leading magazines.' "  "Same thing," she answered, airily;  ''he will never achieve either. It was my  way of letting him dowu easily."  "Letitia, listen to me," I said. "Lightly has written tha entire Christmas nuns  berof All the World."  At this Letty looked at me reproachfully.  "Dick," she said, "where hare you been  dining?"  "No, it is not that," I protested; "1  dined at the club, and Lightly told me  himself, and he showed me th* magaziue,  and asked me to be his best-man, and we  ouly had one bottle between ns."  "Well, this is a scrape!" she exclaimed,  ruefully; "I suppose I will bave to ksop uy  promise and marry him,"  "And what about your promise to me?"  I asked, sarcastically.  'That was indefinite," she answered,  thoughtfully; "there waa never any time  set for tbat. So I shnll have to marry bim  now, and if he should - die, or anything  .happen, I could marry you afterward."  "Thanks," I replied,, dryly; "but that  programme does not suit me. Now let m*  plan a little. You have beeu a willful  creature, never ready to name the day,  and see the trouble you have got iuto. I  suppose Lightly will be here bright and  early to-morrow to ^marry yon. Now, 1  propose to marry you myself tomorrow,  at noon." o  At this lier eyes opened in wide protest.  "Yes," I continued, "I shall send a not*  to Lightly,- telling him of your change o(  plane, and asking him to.be my best mau."  "But, Dick, this  is  so sudden. ��������� What  ���������ball we lire ou?"  - "Love, yon practical girl," I orled,  catching her in my arms; "besides, thc  publishers of All the World to-day offered  me the editorship of the magazine, vice  Aldeson, resigned. I suppose his going  out has some connection with this bushiest  of Lightly's. I am sorry for him, but 1  might as well have the pluc* as  another."  - "Then you can print' anything of your  own that you want to, can't you, d������ar? 1  ���������in so glad that you won't hare to b* rejected any more."

According to thermo-druamics,  great heat is produced in suddenly pasiinp  from a state of great .Activity to a state of  perfect rest.

Introduction of Sliver Into the Bank  Bcserve Mould Belnforee the ttolil   ,  Kcserve   of   England.  The Lop don Financial News of September 25, published the following interesting article oil "the gold reserve in its  true light."  It may not be out of place to ask the  London bunkers who have been lnemor-  alizing,the Bank of England if they  have quite realized why the British government has from time to time sought  the co-operation of the bank in an  attempt to promote the use of legal  tender money by foreign countries. It  may seem paradoxical, but tbe proposal  to introduce silver into the bank reserve  has its root, in a desire to reinforce the.  gold reserve ot this country. Tbe remarkable expansion in lhe production of  gold in recent years has to a great extent  lulled the fear that there might ere long  be such a scarcity of the precious metal  that this country would be compelled to  strengthen the mechanism by which the  outflow of gold is regulated. London is  the only free gold market, and whenever demands arise our stock is freely  drawn upon. The only means hitherto  used to protect the gold reserve has been  tlie simple expedient of raising the bank  rate, which not only made those who  wanted our money pay more for it, but  also created a counter uttraction by making its employment at home more remunerative. Frequently this expedient, the  only one consistent with the maintenance  of a free market, has barely fulfilled its  object. We have been too familiar with  operations intended to "make the Bank  rate effective," and the extent and frequency of these operations furnish a  measure'of the difficulties experienced  by thc Bank of England in maintaining  a sufficient gold reserve. The joint stock  bankers of the metropolis have none of  the responsibility attaching to the duty  of keeping this reserve. It is practically-  kept for them; it is not only their  ultimate, but their only reserve. Take  the bankers' balances from the Bank of  England aud the Old Lady -would look  poor indeed; but distribute these balances to their respective owners and the  latter would look still poorer.  That the clearing bankers should feel a  lively interest in the fortunes of their  reserve is only natural; but we would  beg them .to make the interest less superficial. The strength and utility of a  reserve cannot be judged by an arbitrary,  standard. It is impossible to say that a  reserve of a certain sum and of a certain  metallic composition is good and sound,  nnd that another with a different composition is dangerous aud unsound. Tbe  true gauge of a reserve is its capacity to  bear the extreme possible strain tbat  may be put on it The' strain on the  Bank of England reserve has in recent  years been more variable, and at times  more extreme, thun in the days when all  the world but ourselves thought silver  good enough for "legal-tender money/  Every ndditiou'tothenumber of gold-  using or nominally gold-using countries  has added an actual or a potential drawer  on our gold reserve. It is the habit of  many to hail with delight the announcement that still another country has  "found salvation" in tbe single gold  standard, as though every new recruit  added strength and substance to our  traditional monetary policy���������though it  might be unkind to ask now'_ old the  tradition is. If all the nations���������Austria-  Hungary, Chili, and Japan, for example  ���������which have lately adopted a nominal  gold standard were to practice gold  monometallism as we know it their conversion would have cost us dear indeed.  As it was, the accumulation of a certain  quantity of gold in Vienna and Buda-  Pesth would have caused a severe strain  on the Bank of England reserve had not  circumstances enabled supplies of gold  to be obtained from' the United StntfiB.  Now that the United States can afford,  after going through a phase of tribulation, to recover her lost gold, the burden  of satisfying the demand falls on us and  on the Bank of England.'" So much of  the American gold as remains safely  locked up in Austria-Hungary���������locked  up because of the constancy and intensity of the demand for gold���������will have to  be made good from the supplies or the  accumulations of the world's free gold  market. If the supplies are insufficient  the accumulations must be drawn on, and'  these are represented solely by the Bank  of England reserve.  The people who see all these things,  ���������who have to note every impending gold  movement with watchful eye and take  measures to relieve our gold reserve from  over pressure, are the directors ot the  Bank of England. The manager of a'  joint stock bank in ~ London sees the  inside of none of these things; entrenched  behind the bill-brokers on the one hand  and the Bank of England on the other,  he sits calmly and criticises ��������� sometimes  "entirely disapproves," But why should  he make harder the task of those who  have to bear the burden and heat of the  day, who have to protect the gold reserve  "without, so far as it can be avoided, unduly raising the cost of money to the  merchant and the manufacturer? Cannot these bankers see that everything  whieh encourages the use of silver as  legal tender money outside these islands  reduces the claims on the supply of gold,  makes it easier for the Bauk of England;  to keep a big gold reserve? AVe should  like to commend to them a passage from  Mr. Goschen's speech on the Bank reserve, before the London .Chamber.Koi.  Commerce in December, 1891. After  quoting the well-known letter from the  Treasury to the Governor, of the Bank in  July 1881, on the subject of holding  silver as part of the reserve, Mr. Gos-  ohen, then Chancellor of the Exchequer,  went on:���������Do not let it be thought that  it such as arrangement were carried out,  and tbe Bank of England .were to hold a  portion of its reserve in silver, on the  express condition that other countries  would keep their mints open for silver ns  well os gold,' it would be'in any way in  contradiction to tbe policy we alldesire  to see followed, that the stock of bullion  in the Bauk of England should be largely  increased, because, by the adoption of  free mintage in other countries the pressure upon our stock of gold would be  Considerably avoided. The pressure upon  our stock of gold naturally bas been  increased and-intensified when other  countries passed to a monometallic  system instead of a bimetallic system.  Therefore, there is no contradiction  whatever in saying tbat on that condition���������but, let it be fairly understood, on  that condition only���������I do not see why  the Bank of England might not be  invited to repeat such a declaration as  that ot 1881." This speeeh was made  before an audience largely of bankers,  presided over by Sir John LuVibock, and  no one, then or since, has called in  question the soundness of the proposi-  tionjhat to encourge others to use silver  must reduce the competition for the gold  we wish to use ourselves.   .  This is the principle on which the  present Governor of the Bank of England acted when he wrote to the Chan-,  cellor of the Exchequer agreeing that the  Bank would, oo certain conditions, hold  silver as part of the reserve. The conditions mentioned were even more onerous  than those suggested by Mr. Goschen.  For Mr. Hugh Colin Smith must' be  satisfied not only that silver is as good,  that is as exchangeable, as gold, but that  the prices at which it is purchasable and  saleable are "satisfactory" to the Bank.  Tbis requirement is of double significance:  It suggests that, in addition to having  the last word as to the ratio; the bank  must see its way to making a profit from  its dealings iii silver, as it does from its  dealings in gold. We can imagine.the  shiver that posses through a conventional  London banker at the hint that the bank  of England jobs in gold aud makes a  profit thereby. The "trained, banker"  whom the Times wishes to see in the  bank court has' no" experience of such  work; whereas the capable men who now  direct the" Bank of England are steeped  in knowledge, of bullion movements and  transactions. If "a representative of the  professional banking world" were introduced into the bank parlor he would be  quite at sea, and, so far from educating  the amateurs, would himself be educated  by them. Let each banker who took  part in the comminatory meeting ask  himself what he has learned, in -the  course of hubusihessTof gold movements  and how to control them, and .of the  difficulties., that beset' those who hove to  maintain a gold reserve in the face of a  reclTrnngTdrainr^Tlien lef him contrast  with the even procession of his own  business the'weekly and daily anxieties  of tbe Bank of England, court when the  reserve is being poached on from every  quarter. Having made the comparison  candidly, let bim then ask if he were not  somewhat premature in condemning Mr.  Hugh Colin Smith. "Can he not conceive  that by making one-fifth of the reserve  silver the remaining four-fifths of gold  might be made much larger than the  whole is now, end be made even stronger  relatively, through the fact that countries  now. striving for gold would be,content  with silver?  questions and returii very'foolish verdicts  every oue with the 'slightest knowledge  of the interior of a court pf justice must  admit,' But we must not blame the honest  man too much. The debilitating effects  of a long wranglo between Tweedledum,  Q.C., and Tweedledee, Q.C... followed, by  a pompous abstruse haraugue from Mr.  Justice. Bumptious, should be taken into  consideration. The wonder is when'one,  remembers the'pains that are taken by  the learned counsel 'to mystify juries,  that so rmiiiy. sensible verdicts are obtained. Here are somo cases which do  not show trial'by jury iii-the brightest  light:  A provision dealer prosecuted a mau  for stealing a piece of bacon out of his  bhop^' The evidence v������'RS simple nnd undisputed. The.- prosecutor, silting in a  little back parlor with a glass door, saw  the thief walk up'to the counter,'pick up  the bacon aud put it in. his pocket.  "You saw me through the glass, did1  you?" asked the prisoner.  "Yes," said the plaintiff. .  "Well, then, I must be let off; you  can't swear through glass."  The judge, of course, made light of  this strange defense, but the jury took  the prisoner's view and acquitted him.'  Baron Alderson once tried a civil .action, in which the plaintillMiad had his  ribs broken and his skull fractured by  the defendant. The facts were not disputed; it was only aquestionof damages,'  and the jury awarded the plaintiff ������1..  "Go home," exclaimed the judge, savagely, "and as you value libs at ������11.  hope you will, get some liberal purchasers for your own on the journey."  At Winchester, in 1855, the/same judge  tried Borne poachers. It was noticed that  the defending couusel, the Recorder ot  Portsmouth, challenged a great many of  the penel, so that the jury was very  slowly constituted. There was no question as to the evidence; the men ought to  have been convicted without a moment's  hesitation. The jury, however, acquitted  them. - - '        ���������  "You see," said one of the jurors afterward, ">ve are all Portsmouth men, and  our recorder said one thing and the other  old judge oa the bench said another, and  we thought onr recorder was most likely  to be right, so- we let the men off.'.'.   ���������  JUBIES AND THEIE.VEKDIOTS.  Iu   *'ornier  TIiuch Agreement   Was. Compelled.���������Koine AmiiNini; Kctiirnt.  It used"to be"the" practice to starve  disagreeable jurymen into agreement.  At the conclusion of a case the jurors  were locked up without fire, light or food  and thus they had to remain until they  decided upon a verdict. . Once upon a  time it was discovered that a "jury so  locked up had'refreshed themselves with  some apples which One of their number  brought in his pockets.- The judge  severely rated them on their misconduct,  and fined them 12 shillings each. In  the reign of" Henry Villi, Lord Chief  Justice Reed, presiding at London city  sessions, had to punish a jury for the  same heinous' offense of taking refreshment before their verdict had been  delivered. The circumstances were  peculiar and afford an interesting glimpse  of the manners of the time. - The jurers  on a motion made on their behalf to set  aside the fine,.-pleaded that it was the  judge who was to blame and not they.  They said that they returned into court  witb their verdict after a reasonable  amount of deliberation, but they found  that his lordship had gone out to see an  affray. They therefore "returned and  sought their room to await his return,  and thought they were doing no wrong  in taking a little lunch. The fine was  upheld.  Many and diverting are the stories told  by smart lawyers of poor befogged jurors  That jurors do sometimes ask very idiotic  PHYSIOGNOMY.  The   t'liiu   Considered   as   au   Index   of  Character.  The New York Phrenological Journal  for October prints the subjoined article  on the chin, as an indication, of iudging  character , written by Dr. Crutcher of  Great Falls:       ,      -  "Protruding chins characterize men  and women of the get-there type. Successful people usually carry their chins  thrust forward, with compressed lip's.  This chin, if heavy, with broad rami  and-swelling masseters, indicates-fighting blood.  "A retreating chin shows liick of force,  mentally, morally aud physically;.usually  of.the yielding sort; soon discouraged;  desires protection; small executive force.  The development of other faculties often  makes up for this defect.  ��������� "A small well rounded chin, with mobile and red cushion of flesh upon it,  indicates a-pleasure-loving- owner; if  dimpled, all the more so, for dimpled  chins belong to coquettes. People)'with  dimples love to be petted and loved; like  admiration and praise; general I y'~fickleT  Usually this chin is healthy, recuperative  and long-lived. ' ,  :'��������� "Broad. chins signify nobleness and  largo dignity, unless . vertically thin,  when, if with" it there be thin lips of  bloodless kind, you find cruelty. . ' ,  ���������'"Square chins with little flesh denote  firmness and executive ability.' These  make good haters. ' "  . "Drunkards usually bave a circular  line about their chins.  "Slovens have' wrinkles about "their  chins.  "Long, thin china are' poelicai, unstable aud delicatein constitution. Such  people aro subject to bowel derangeT  mentis.'1' If thin through -the angles of  the mouth, too, they are prone to tuberculosis; generally short-lived.  "Medium chins with" a suggestive bifurcation in the center, with, small  mounds of flesh on either sido, characterize generosity, impulsiveness, cheery  natures. The same bized chins with a  dab"of flesh just under the center of the  lower lip,, iudicates meanness, selfishness, brutality.  "N. 15.���������No one feature can be taken  in judging character. Often development of other faculties of miud or Tea"  ture entirely, governs. In each case  take the-'totality of indications'-before  judging."  ��������� CHUKCH   NOTICES.    -  CnuRcn' op England.

Hepnrt or Chemltl Ui.ldKJi (o Hie IoiiikII  -Sewer <;<iiitrn<-l  for1. Section lt  Relet.  According to the report of chemist and  assayer A. H. Holdich to the city council  there is a quantity of adulterated milk in  the city. Iii his report he states that of  the twenty-two samples submitted to him  for chemical analysis, some are genuine  milk; some are questionable and some  are adulterated. In most of the latter  he found a large percentage ot water and  some fatty substances added. He has  not yet had timo to determine the component parts ot this fatty matter but  would probably have the report completed in a few days. Sugar is usually used  in the adulteration of milk to bring it up  to the standard specific gravity, but this  is 'sometimes displaced by salt or borax.  The analysis is ,for the most part technical, but out,.of the 22 samples Mr.  Holdich found ten that contained from 5  to 27 parts ot water to 100 parts. The  nercentages of adulteration were as follows: 21, 24, 5, 25, 27,10,20,20,22 and 19.  The council concluded to await the balance of the report before taking action in  the matter.  A communication was received from  the president of tbe Nelson & Fort Sheppard railway stating that the company  would grade a road from its siding on  the hill io the limits of the city, providing that the city would continue the  street from the limits to the business  center of the city. Mayor Houston  stated that a fair grade could be secured  on Latimer street to Josephine or Stanley, and that it would be necessary to  grade only three or four blocks. He  thought the company intended to put in  a station at the point named and would  do much of its business from there, lhe  proposition was agreed to and tenders  ���������' for the grading were called for to be in  at the next meetiog.  The question of constructing section B  at the sewer system caaie up for consideration. Mayor Houston staled that  Contractor- McDonald had made up his  estimate hastily and had made an error  in figuring it. The contractor seat in a  revised tender, for $1,210 which is about  $100 in excess of the former bid.  "The man ought to be careful about  putting a tender in," said Alderman Hillyer."  "I might Bay his bid is $200 better thau  " any of the other revised tenders," said  the mayor. "Both of the others put in  revised tenders. Breckinridge & Lund  offered to do the work for ������1,500, aud  Newling &-Co. offered to take 8100 off  from Ward and Victoria streets, and do  Silica street for SI.00 per foot.  "The work should be offered to Newling for the figures of McDonald," said  Alderman Hillyer.  "I don't think lie would accept it,"  remarked Alderman Dow. ^  "I think we had better adhere to the  -j-arulc-and���������giveiit-to-thc-lo.wesfc-biQcler,'!  said the mayor,  A motion to that effect was carried.  ��������� A- petition- was received- from F. D.  "Wright et al asking for permission to  string wires in streets and alleys for a  messenger service to be known as the  . Nelson Messenger Co. Consent was  a granted, the work to bc~subject to the  approval of the mayor.  Contractors'Breckinridge & Lund eub-  0 mitted a bill of. extras for $923.80. The  city engineer's -figures! for.these extras,  amounted . to $681.15 and they - were  accepted by the council. *As $300 had  been ..paid on account, it waa-ordered  . that a check for thc balance, S3S1.15 be  drawn iu favor of the contractors. They  were also allowed 31,200 on the reservoir.  Street lighting bylaw No. 19 was finally  adopted. V  Tho mayor was authorized to enter  into a contract for laying an 8-inch sewer  on Baker street from Stanley to Koolenay.  He stated that the cost would probably  not exceed $300 as they had the pipe on  >    baud.  The mayor reported that he had  ������ received a check for ������1578 from the government &3 the city's share of the taxes  collected. " It was 289-365 of the full  amount. Of the full amount the C. & K.  railroad paid ������1015.80.  Bills to the amount of 8258.16 were"  audited and ordered paid.   The amount  includes 816G.G6 for  the mayor's salary  "     for the month ending October 15.  Adjourned until  Wednesday at 3 p.m.  Cheap Piisscnscr Kales. "  Portland to San Fraucisco via the O.
