A new flag has been given to' tbe  collection of banners emblematic or  the peoples and nations of the world.  It is not', however, the flag of a new  nation   or   one   that   lias   freed   itself  from   another   governing   power,   but  is  the banner of    one of the    oldest,  European countries, and  which  owes  allegiance  to .another. At  is   that  of  Norway, and from it is erased every  color'and every line that.would suggest'the    sway  of  the     Swede.   For  more  than a  quarter     of ' a century  have the Norwegians struggled to secure  this  emblem   of  their  nationality and dispense with the flag of thai  of  their  conqueror.   Three  times  has  thc   bill   been   passed   over   King   Oscar's  veto,   which,  under   the  constitution,  makes  it an  operative    law,  and  Bjornsen,   the     poet,     ca.n  , look  ���back with  resignation     on   the    riot-  ous     demonstration     his     agitation  aroused.  It was tho French Kevolution, that  terrible struggle for liberty 'that,  commenced in 1789 and is still continuing, though not with armed foi-i-  ces,   that' gave  Norway     to  Sweden.  try wns forced mot only to riVsrrt  Hon-ipnrte's standard, but furnish  10.COO  men   to" fight  him.  Hut  Norway  was  sincerelj'  attached  to   Denmark and refused  to quietly submit  to     the     tra-nsaclion     and  yield   to  her  enemies   of hundreds'' of  years.    Under  Prince    Chrisl ian Frederick,   hereditary'prince   of   Denmark  and   duke of Slesv/ig  T-Iolstein.     who  was  governor of Norway,  the Norsemen   revolted  and   enlisted  under  his  standard   three  days   after   the  signing  of  the   treaty.    A    month     later  the Danish    flag    gave way    to-   the  Norwegian,   and   April   10 "a  meeting  of,the states  was  convoked,  when  a  constitution   was   proclaimed,,, Prince  Christian   crowned   and   preparations  ChiNESE JUSTICE.  made for national defense,. The  mountains formed a sort of protection from the Swedish invasion,'" but  the most serious question was the  grain a.nd ' provision for'which they  were dependent-.-upon England. The  latter, being a party to the contract  to deliver Norway;- slopped the food  supply aeid blockaded all tlie hitter's  ports,     t  All    the   allied    governments ���  sent  envoys  to Copenhagen   for'  the   purpose   of  effecting an   amicable   settlement of the     question.'   On     Julv     7  they presented aynolo  to    the ' effect  that tho cession of Norway had been  guaranteed'by four  powers,  that   the  polio'. was  irrevocable ns   the    allied  powors   considered   the  union   of'Norway' and Sweden  one of the bases  of  the new    system of    equilibrium,    n,-,  iiidenin'i/k-alion    against     -war       and  payment "to   .Sweden    which   no   other  arrangement  could  effect.

Of Li Hung Chang numberless stories  are told in Chinese society.    On one occasion, says The Literary Digest, when  the  premier  was  having a   bitter  fight  with   some   of   the   more   conservative  members  of   the  tsung-li-yameD   he   received as a present a magnificent cake  which he had reason to suspect contained  poison.  He put the cake'aside and set all  his powerful machinery to work to find  out who was at the bottom of the plot.  The investigation was partly successful,  the crime being traced to three men; of  whom    one   at    least    was    absolutely  guilty.     Li   had   the, trio   arrested   and  brought to his yamen.    When  they arrived,  they were ushered  into his presence and were received in his courtliest  mauner.    The cake  was produced  with  the remark that "politeness forbade his  tasting  it  until  the, three generous donors   had had an opportunity to enjoy its  excellence."    Li cut'the cake, aiid one of  his servitors handed it to the unwilling  guests.    Each  took a piece and ate   or  pretended to eat it.    One crumbled  the  pieces and let them fall upon the floor,  but  the other  two ate calmly,   without  manifesting any emotion.    Ten' minutes  and the two men began to show symptoms of suffering.   Li smiled benignantly  and said to the man who had not eaten,  "Your   wisdom   is  so  great   that   1   am  compelled   to  preserve' your  head   as  a  souvenir to transcendent genius."  The man was removed and' promptly  decapitated. To,the other two the premier remarked: "The cake that you are0  eating is not the one you sent, but one  which I had my cook imitate. The poison from which yoii are suffering.exists  only in your imagination. 1 know of no  way to cure,your present pain except by  letting you share the same fate ns your  friend who has just left the room."  As they were led away the statesman  said to his retinue, "It is a,pity that a  man who can eat a deadly corrosive  poison with an unmoved countenance  should so misapply the talent "wherewith  heaven has endowed him." ,i  ABOUT CANADA.

One of the most pathetic things is the  manner in which the animal' kingdom endures suffering. Take horses, for instance, in battle. After the first shock  of a wound they make no sound. They  bear the pain with a'mute, wonderful  endurance, and if at night vou hear a  wild groan from the battlefield it comes  from their loneliness, iheir loss of that  human companionship which seems absolutely indispensable to the'comfort of  domesticated animals.  The dog will carry  a  broken  leg for  days wistfully, but uncomplainingly.  The cat,* stricken with stick or stone  or caught in some trap from which it  gnaws its way to freedom, crawls in  some secret place' and bears In silence  pain which we could not endure. Sheep  aud cattle often meet the thrust of the  butcher's knife without a sound, and  even common poultry endure Intense  agony without complaint.  The dove shot to death flies to some  faroff bough, nnrl ns it dies the silence  is unbroken save by the patter on the  leaves of its own lifeblood. Tbe wounded deer speeds to some thick brake and  in pitiful submission waits for death.  ; The eagle, shot: in midair, fights to the  last against the fatal summons. There  is no moan or sound of pain, and the defiant look never fades from .Its eyes until  the lids close over them never to uncover  again. ��� y   ���������. y  Worth   Alt   ami   2llore   of   tha, Work  Put  ..,      y Vu.c u......   ri,u,��.

Serious Conditions that Milburn's  Heart and Nerve Pills can "  Readily Cure.  , One of the indications of serious hsart  trouble is the sensation of weakness or  faintness that comes on at times.  ' Sometimes it is simply a dizzy feeling  that passes off, or it,may be a .state of unconsciousness  with hands and feet  cold  and countenance  ghastly pak*.  'These symptoms indicate a  weakened heart.  They are unmistakable evidences  of the engine of  life breaking  ,down.    '  '���'f&aS&YK ^0W there's  t****^ only one.reliable  remedy for restoring strength and vitality  to weakened hearts and relieving all the  distressing symptoms. It is Milburn's  Heart and Nerve Pills!  The case of Mrs. A. Stratton, Frederic-  ton, N.B.,';amply proves this. Here ia  her statement:  "I suffered very much from an impoverished condition of tho blood, coupled  with extreme nervousness. A dizzy sensation on arising quickly or coming down  stairs, often troubled me,- and my breath  was so short that I coiild not Ayalk up  stairs. Tho least exertion caused my  heart to flutter and palpitate violently,  and I sometimes felt a smothering sensation on going to sleep,..  I doctored back and,forth for my weakness, but I got no relief from any mc-dieine  until I tried Milburn's Heart'and Nerve  Pills, and I can say that they helped me  wonderfully.' Sometime?, my face and  arms .would swell and puff, but all these  troubles speedily yielded to the restoring  influences of Milburn's Heart and Nerve  Pills, and I am now strong and well. 1  did not use them long until I regained the  blessing of healthful, refreshing sleep and  it will always be a pleasure to me to  recommend them to others."

The  ueigbbor called out: ��  "Good morning, Mr. Rogers. Where  are you going?"  "Why," said Mr. Rogers, In' a surprised way, "I'm driving the cow to  pasture." And he waved his lyind  toward where tbe cow ought to have  been. .   ' '  '"Well, where Is the cow?" asked his  friend.
