Tlie part's'were'   well   sustained  and    the    > interest     maintained  throughout.    Tho plot'was"as follows:     Mr.    Walter    Litherland,  who is courting Miss Emily Wat-  muff, is objected to by Mrs.  Wat-  muff  and ordered    to   quit   the  house.    This ��� he does not do, > but  later seeking an interview   with  Mr. Watmuff, -.yho'is favorable to  his aspirations, - discovers a   plot  being   concocted  ^between    that  gentleman   and_, JnCi'.  ! Ferdinand  Swift, a  Canadian  inventor  who  has  brought  out\to    Canada   a"  "Patent Freezing Fluid."    By. the  exercise of a little duplicity these  gentlemen  intend   to   get'_ Mrs.  Watmuff to submit herself to  be  operated on.    Litherland discloses  the plot to' Mrs.   Watmuff,  wlio  throwing away the  mixture  substitutes water and then  pretends  to fall   in  with  the  couspiator's  plans.    Tho   scene    that    ensued  was full of humor and  fun.    The  curtain filially fulls  upon a  scene  iu which Mr.  Watmuff ia  promised a  "cold"   time,   aud  Walter  Litherland and Emily receive  the  mother's concent  to  their   wedding.    Had we  scirched   though-  out the province we could  hardly  havo    found   an    amateur    who  would havo sustained thc part  of  the   henpecked    husband    better  than Mr. Sois'th.

<■    A gentleman very richly dressed in

and stared at the djor as tho"gh he

hastened away down the corridor with
the air of a man who has come to a

to himself, as he pulled his thick dark
mustache, "he is off to make some

little choice between breaking my orders, and making an enemy of her for

feared. Ah. heaven be praised, it is a
friend and not a foe. Good morning,
MUe. Xanon."
"Good morning, Captain de Carina*-"
The newcomer was u tall, gtaccful
brunette, her fri-sli. face and sparkling
black eyes the brighter in contrast with
her plain dress.

"I would rather talk to Mile. Nanon.
.but if—
■ "Ob!" .There, was an exclamation, a
whisk of dark skirts, and the souhrette;
disappeared down a side passage. ,
Along the broad 'lighted corridor was
gliding a very stately and beautiful
ludy. tall, graceful and exceedingly
'.haughty. "'The lady was past her iirst
youth, it is true, but the magnificent
curves of her queenly figure, the purity
*of her complexion, the brightness of

regularity of her features enabled her
still to claim to be the most handsome
ks well as the most sharp tougued wo-
jn'an iu the court of France.
"Ah, it is Captain de Catinat!" said
Mme. de.Montespan, with a smile.
"Your'humble servant, marquise."
"1  am fortunate in finding  a friend

"Such',aro v_iny orders, madame. It

"You may spare;your protestations,
captain,   You   may' yet  find 'that you
have every reason to.be deeply pained.

drawn tliem off a few paces'and who
stoo'd open eyed, staring at tbe scene.
"I tell you that I will,see the Jdng."
"You will ruin me if you pass."
"And none tlie less I sbalUIo so."
The matter looked sorious?ftoDe' Catinat  was  a  man  of  resource,  but  for
once lie was at his wits' end.   Mme. de
Montespan's .resolution, as.lt'was called in lier presence, or effrontery, as it
was termed behind her back, was proverbial.'   If she attempted to force her
way, would lie venture to use violence
upon one who only yesterday held the
fortunes of the vv, liole court in the hollow  of her hand  and  who,   with  her,
beauty, her wit and her energy, might
very  well be in the same position  to-
'morrow?   If she passed him, then his
future was ruined with the king, who
never brooked  the 'smallest deviation
from his orders.
"If madai^p  would  deign   to  wait,"
said  lie, soothingly, "the  king will  be
on his way to the chapel in an instant."
"It is not yet time."
"J tliinJv tlie Jiour has just<gone."
"And   why    should   I    wait   like   a
"It is but a moment, madame."
"No. I sliall  not wait."    She took a
.stop forward toward the door.
But the guardsman's quick ear had
rainrht tlie sound of moving feel from

The monarch slipped it into the pocket of Ids scarlet undervest and was advancing once more' when his eyes fell
upon Mme: de Montespan standing
very stiff, and erect in the middle of
the; passage. A dark flush of' anger
shot to liis brow* and he walked swiftly
past her without a word, but she turned
and kept pace with hrm down the corridor.

Amusing   Oddities    of    Some   Ancient
'        _1
English   Churches.
Some pews'in the fine old church
at __alpas, Clieshiie, England, possess
a most amusing "peculiarity. ^ Each
one consists of sc-veral seats,' which
are really, though not appaiently, de-
taclied, and they look easy and comfortable. In this case appearances
are deceitful, for sliould one occupant
of any one seat lean forward while
"nidnid nodding" over he goes, on
the floor. The seat is so constructed
as'to easily tip over when any weight
is placed on its,'outer or front edge
nnd was so designed to prevent people from going to' sleep in church:* ' i
, We still find in a few of our ancient
churches the high pews,, luxurious |
cushions and curious, fitting? of former
days. '
Jn the good old times, when the
squire was lord of all he surveyedVn,
the1 village, his pew in the parish
church was often a kind of sitting
room. One such pew occupies the
.whole of the soutli transept of the
diminutive chuich at Gatton, in
Surrey. ■ It has a fireplace, a low seat
which extends around two sides of
the room and. blue tapestry 'decoration: Above it is another floor, on
which are three or0four ordinary pews
for the use of'the squire's servants,
and from it a .covered way leads to
Gatton Hall, some few yaids away.
There may be some truth in the story
that aMormcr squire used to enjoy n
pipe'by the'fireplace during the ser-,
mon and that' if he became Weary he-
would go out through-thef private door
for a 'short stroll in the- churchyard.
-A "similar pew exists in a church at
Colwich, Staffordshire. It has a stair-
cas-e'lending -lo a private door, and
it, is 'said .lhat the postman came this
way to convey letters and that the
servant brouglit in cake and wine for
'Consumption during the service.     ,
The royal pew of St. George's "chapel, Windsor,-is ^peculiar, because - it
is theolargest of its kind in England
and on account''of its being situated
above the choir, down upon,which the
Queen, can see the service from a fine
oriel window. , * ~' '<- f> 1 ,

reminiscences' pf these royal comings
and goings during his 29 .years in,
chargerof the, Brighton station. Queen.
Victoria was''a frequent visitor to the-
station on her way. to and from?Os-
boi;ne. When Ithe* Queen died, Mr.
Wright was responsible foi* the arrangements for convpying the body
from Osborne to Victoria, and King
Edward expressed his high, appreciation of* them.      -   '   "
Of tlie late Kine of Portugal and
the late Crown Prince Mr. Wright
has the pleas-mtest recollections.
"Most kindly and genial" is'his description of the murdered monarch.
The two royal- personages who preferred to travel slowlv were Queen
Victoria and the late Shah of Persia.
Her Majesty never cared to travel at
a speed higher than ,from 40 to 45
miles an hour; and the Shah was
frightened if a speed over 20 miles an
hour were .attained. Tn -"February,
1884, part of the station was blown
up bv Fenians. A Gladstone-bag had
bcen'depositod'in the cloakroom containing dynamite, and when this exploded it wrecked the cloakroom and
the ticket office, besides doing other
damage. Mr. Wright, who lived in
the neighborhood, heard the noise of-
the explosion," and hurried to the
station, He' found that the flames
had been speedily extinguished. One
station hand, who at-the. time of the
explosion was fixing the fire:hose near
the cloakroom, alone wa^injured, but
not. seriously. ' '
After the' Victoria explosion a
search was made at the other railway
stations, and at Paddington and Charing Cross'Gladstone, bags containing
dynamite-were found in the.cloak-
?oC" .The dynamitards were never
discovered. They escaped, it was be-
hevad to-America. Mr. Wright has
only had to deal with one strike.
This occurred many years ago, when
he was on the western .section. * The
engine-drivers went out on strike, but
retu-ned after two days. Guards
were pressed into service as firemen
in order to keep the service running.
Since Mr. Wright took charge of the
etation thc traffic has been multiplied
by  three.	
Docrease   of   Crime.
The number of people tried for indictable offences in JOOC in England
was 59,07'J, as against 54,007 in 1857,
when the population was foity per
cent, less than now.
This is levealed in a Blue Book
issued recently by the Home Office,

TProseeutions for riot—common fifty
years ago— were now' comparatively
rare, and serious offences of poaching
appeared to be. fewer, but the prosecutions for attempts to commit suicide
had continuously increased.
Out of 10,390 persons convicted at

England's Biggfst Goose Farm
To provide ■ the Cbrist*nas goose lor-
eight thousand homes—or, at a "modest
estimate, thirty thousand people—is
no light undertaking. , Twenty-odd
years ago a thrifty youth saved his
pocket money, . during the earlier
months of the year, and later purchased very young goslings with his
little hoard. These he reared and fattened for Christmas on his parents'
farm in Lancashire. Young John
Elarrison saw there-was money in the
little business he had taken up as a
hobby. The thing grsw year by year
as he grew,, until ,,to-day he is well
known as the Lancxshirc Goose King,
and his business has _ assumed tlio
aforemontioned  proportions.    ,.
A peep at his huge flocks of geese
wandering over fields, acres and acres*
in extent, at TTaIs_.ll, a picturesquo
hamlet near the olri market town of
Ormskirk, would indeed be a revelation and a surprise to many. Twenty
sacks of corn, besides a largo quantity of meal and potatoes, have to be
dealt out per day to this slock of
geese, the corn being usually scooped
out of carts into tranches made along
the   fields.
As Ghristmas approaches the birds
r.re even more libeiaUy supplied with
delicacies, until they evince no disposition to fly—and, indeed, very little
to wander about at all. Expert killers
aiid pluckers got to work some time
before Christmas, and half a dozen of
these men can prepare throe hundred
,lo four hundred a day. They/;make
more than a.sovereign ii day jit the
.work. The feathers sometimes bring
m much aa 2s. a pound.
So   Is  This  Joke.

"Whipped" From «  Lunatic Asylum.
'Among the'amusing anecdotes'told
of parliamentary life Sir Uenry Drum-
mond WolfT In "Ilombllng Recollections" gives the following"- as an 'example of skillful,"whipping:"
"At the time of an Important division
a member happened to be conflued In
a lunatic asylum. Every vote was necessary. " Arrangements were therefore
made to deliver hliDjat the house at
the moment required, and ho" was received by tho 'whip' of his party, who
induced him to walk through the lobby
by preceding him with a stlclr of barley sugar lu his band. This I believe
to,be a perfectly true story."

BLACK DAYS QF HISTORY.  Dates  Which Mark  National Calamh  ties Are so Designated.

Dei by and the safety of the  crown 'pf King George was regarded  as seriously threatened, alb.it the revolution was speedily ' brought,  to an end. In the financial 'history  'of England, May 1J, Jg.C, is designated as Black Friday, as on that  Hay began' a, disastrous, financial  panic, which wns brought about ,by  the',failure, of tlie firm of Overend,  Gurney ��!.

"He is a most i-Velleelual man."  sqid the doctor. "His case is an extraordinarily striking instance of the  fact that nine time= out of ten it is'  society that makes the criminal, and  that until we get a state of affairs  in -which a man with brains has a  chance of congenial work "we cannot  hope to reduce our percentage of  crime."
