The action* will probably be  preferred against    the  mining com-  panies although it is stated  that  the  city itself may be heed, liable.     The  dynamite kept was within the ��� city-  limits and was in excess of  the  quantity named in .the   municipal   bylaw.  Notice was given to the companies  to  have it removed but no  attention  was  paid to the order, it being held on behalf of the companies that the amount  specified by the bylaw1 was less  than  one day's supply of tde   mine  allowed  under the Municipal ' Act,   overriding  any bylaw.  As tbe city failed to insist on the  performance of its mandate it is now  contended that it and not the com-  pam��#, is liable. A test suit may be  brought against the companies, conjoining the city, and in this way at-  temp to overcome the legal point.

Something in the musical voice, so
low and yet so clear and commanding, compiled the youth to an unaccustomed velocity which afterwards astonished him.

Nina hit hnn, pleading and expostulating, and made her way out
into   Kegel)t   Stieet.
Ifaily iu thu alteinooa as it was,
the well known thioughfaro was
crowded,, and -she. was jostled and elbowed as she made her 'way to .',, the
Ninlnd. She went back to the hotel
discouraged and dismayed- She had
spent d. guinea at the sham registry
odice, and saw no prospect .of employment.'.- She was too tired. too
heart-sick.- to eat,'and she spent the
i est of j the evening in the attic near
tho sky.. At nightfall, . weary of her
solitude ,: and the thoughts that
weighed upon her like a, physical
burden, she went out. The streets
were crowded and her solitude in the
midst of the multitude, was almost
intolerable.,-She 'made her way to
the' -Embankment and. . leaning
against the stone ivork which keeps
the., slow 'but. mighty. Thames in
bounds, looked listlessly yet longingly at the -brow111 water sweeping placidly towards the sea.
There, across the ocean, to Which
the, tide was tending, Was the islanl'l

tered a cry of dismay and "■started

had witnessed the latter part of the
.familiar act stopped her with a.
friendly harih' on  hor  shoulder.
"No*use, no uso! They've got clear

never think of taking your purse out

at hor face with-its pure, distraught
eyes—"this is /no, placo '.for you.

"No, no!" said *.Nina, 'bethinking,

she turned and walked up the Em-
lianltmcnt. It was, at, anvj'nto, <iJiiet

penniless, friendless, .in this great city
and 'already/; sho had found how

Sho" mado her way slowly,, mechanically to tho Cholsoa end1 of the-Em-'
bankment. She had' no' _thought' 'of

a gasp 'of surprise < rather .than. relief
that, in 1 the garish gaslight, she" saw
the name of Polly Is stieet staring at'
,' her 'from  the end  house. <*.-">\      ■*
Still mechanically", an*'- half unconsciously, she walkod up f the" street,
'and," as if h\ a dream, stobd' .before
the house'with the^nunibcr Polly had
given  her. 4 <   ,','        \ <
By this time she i was weak and
faint with fatigue and- cveitcment,
and she stood, swaying to and fro,
and, gazing at the house. At this
moment a hansom cab drove up and
*a girl alighted, paid the cabman-
after the usual dispute—and was en-
temig the house, when her eyes fell
upon the figure clinging to the rails.
Polly—f01- it was she—hesitated a
moment, then she •went1 up to Nina.
"Now, then," she said, in a matter-of-fact voice, "what are you doing, here;  what is the matter''"
Nina turned-her white face, and
Tolly uttered an exclamation of sur--
prise and clismav.
"Jliss Wood! Not really! Y'ou, and
here! No, cabby, not , a sixpence
more! I know your fare' Off you go!

The Earl of Lcsborough!
The title rang in Mannering's ears
mockingly. He fought with his emotion and with a gesture of shame
and apology raised his face from his
hands. *"
Lady Letchford had slipped  away—,
with  the  tears  in   her "own  eves—but
Sir   Charles   still   stood     beside     his
"1 beg your pardon," said poor
Vane; "it—it is so sudden, and the
uoy—preat Heaven, to think that he
—and- Augustus—are dead, and that
I—I, who never dreamed of it should
stand  in  their  shoos!"
•'Yes, it's awfully bad," said Sir
Charles, shaking his head, but feeling mean because he could not mourn
as keenly the loss which had made
his friend n peer "But vou ha**e got
to pull yourself together, Vane.
There's no end to do, to **f*e to.

He poiiiod out a glass of (lmiri-
pacne and Vane took it mechanically.
but sat with drooping head and
moody brow, twisting the glass round
and round by its slender stein; and
Letchford watched his friend anxiously and curiously) ,
"Better get to bed, old mail," he
said after nearly half an hour, "you
look played-out and-as if'"you wanted' a good night's rest. In- the morning—" ■ . i! '■".,■
Mannering nodded and rose, and
Letchford took him to his room.
"Is he better?" asked Lady Letchford when Sir Charles: -entered then-
room.- "My heart aches forVh'lm." I
have never before soon a' man break
down; and it makes it all the worse
when he is such 4 great, strong.fellow as Mr. Mannering—Lord Lcsborough,  I   mean." •
Sir Charles shook his head reflectively as he brushed his hair.      |;
"i can't make him out, BSunche.
You saw how he looked when we
tound     him—wandering    «.bout    *ho

"The wreck; perhaps?" suggested
Lady Letchiord.
- "Not much!   Vane could stand half;
a dozen wrecks."
"Judith? Oh, Charlie, how could I
have been' so gauche as to mention
her!" she -wailed.
Sir Charles shook his head.
Ic. "Rather unlike your usual tact, old
girl,"  he admitted.  "Yes,  I'm afraid
ho was hit  hard  there.,     I'm    sorry
Judith is a pal of yours, Blanche—*'
".Was, Charlie.'Be just! You know
I have not spoken to her, since she
jilted Mr. Mannering. Of course, he
must have felt it, for no doubt he
loved her. She is not only the most
beautiful woman in the world—" ■ „
"Present company excepted," said
Sir Charles, with a fond glance over
his shoulder, at {the figure sitting up
in bed.
"Nonsense," retorted Lady Letchford. "Bon't be foolish! I was never in. tne same street—oh, I ,wish I
did not pick up your slang'so easily!
—I never 'could be compared with
Judith; she was, and is, and always
will be, simply incomparable. But I
hate her for -treating Mr. Mannering
so cruelly." , ,
' "Well, she was punished, anyhow,"
said Sir Charles. "Fancy chucking

Mr. Tiessider was one o,f the old-

Inns. His office was in Grey's, and
Mannering, as he mounted the steep
and not too clean stairs, paused and
looked absently at the trees in which
the rooks had nested and brought
out 'their young; he did1 not seem in
any hurry to put in ,his formal claim
to the  title.     ,
A confidential clerk, of as old a
fashion as his master, received Mannering, and with a grave earnestness
ushered him into the presence of the
lawyer. ' ,
Mr. Tressider came to meet him
with outstretched hand, and exclaimed with intense satisfaction and
"Lord Lcsborough! At last! How
do you do? I need scaicely say that
T am glad to see you! My advertisement will be sufficient proof of
that "
"I've seen none," said Mannoring.
"I've been abroad—been wrecked. I
heard the—tho bad news for the first
time last night, from my friend. Sir
Charles Letchford—"
Mr. Tressider nodded; he had a nod
which Lord Butleigh would not have
been ashamed to own.
"Quito so; quite so! I have the
honor of Sir Charles Letchford's acquaintance. So, of course, you know
the—er—sad circumstances nhich have
placed you in possession of the title.
Very sad; very sad! But I am very
glad to see you, my lord."
The title was still strange to Mannering and he moved uneasily.
"All the more glad,", continued the
old lawyer, "because at one time we
almost feared that you' had ^com-

The columbine, geranium and-'larkspur we think of together because they
are' all named after birds—the dove,
the crane and the lark.' Tbe meaning
of geranium is "crane's bill," and lf
yoit notice tbe seed pods of a geranium
you will see that they do look like the
long bill of a crane. The touch-me-not
, gets its name from a peculiarity of the
seed pod, too, but not a peculiarity of
appearance. It Is the pod^you must
not touch, for if you .do it will burst,
and out will fly the seeds..

His Reward For It Cams When He N»
Longer Wanted Money--Britain
Paid With Knighthood.
In an autobiography of Sir Henry
Bessemer is told how, in 1833, when
h-2 was a youth of twenty, he learned
that the, British Government was losing about $500,000 a year through the
use of forged ' stamps. He set about
finding a remedy. In nine months he
discovered how to forge Government
stamps with tha greatest ease. This
was a risky bit of knowledge for a
struggling-" young man who wanted
money wherewith to get married to the
girl of his choice. But young Bessemer,
having invented forthwith the' perforated stamp that Is tnow known everywhere, went gayly to. the Government
officials with the forgeries In hts pocket to ask.'if they were genuine. When
Sir Charles' Prasley passed thi-m as
ge'nutne, Bessemer remarked -that he
know they,were forgeries—"simply because I forged thsin myself" Then he
suggested a remedy. It was accepted.
Bessemer was offered the post,'Of superintendent ' of stamps—for, plant and
siaff must be reorganized—at $3,000 'to
$4,000 a year.        , '  ,
-Young Bessemer went away 'happily
to tell his good luok- to tho girl of his
choice..j He .explained ,to her the situation, how old stamps' had .been picked off documents and used again and
how he had Invented an elaborate plan
to remedy ttif«* '* "But surely," said the
'young lady, "If all the stamps had a
date puf on' them they could not a( a,
future time be used with detection."
This rather startled young, Bessemer.
But lie devised a' slriiple method of mark-,
Ing the- date."' Tho British .Government
was delighted. The "device was accepted. And,'as no change of'machinery or staff was needed, Bessemer was
Informed that ,no superintendent of
stamps'^wbuld be,appointed.', ■ Thus he
had*,deprived himself o.f'a Job.
,- Forty five years' later,, after ;be had
Invented cthe "Bessemer .process" "'of
preparing Iron.and had made a great
fortune, Bessemer wrote'^o Lord Bea;
consfield/.then . Primes-Minister,' poinding but that he had saved the',country
millions-without-the reward pf a penny.

Accordinc to John Adama, It  Should
Be July 2.
On the 3d cf July, 177G, John AdamsF]
then one of the representatives of Massachusetts in the Continental congress,
wrote to his wife Abigail:
"Yesterday the greatest question -was
decided which rwas ever debated in
America, and a greater perhaps never
was nor -will be decided among men-."
> In a second letter, written the same
day, he said:
"But the day is past. The 2d of July
will be the most memorable epocha in
the history of America. I am apt to believe that it,will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to, be commemorated as the day of deliverance
by*-solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized
with pomp and parade, with shows,
games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and
illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward, foreverinore."
Wh«n the resolution was taken up on
the 2d, all the states, except New York,
voted to accept it Thus, on the 2d
day, of July, 1776, the Independence
of the thirteen united colonies from
the throne of Great Britain wasdefl-
nltely decided upon. The 2d. and not
the 4th, may be called the true date of
the separation. We could with propriety celebrate tho Fourth two days earlier. That the participants in the work
considered the 2d us the true date Is
shown by the letters written by John
Adams, quoted at the beginning of the
article. The popular fancy, however,
seized upon the -1th, tbe date of acceptance of Jefferson's more dramatic declaration of tho reasons for the separation, as tlie proper day to celebrate.
The debate upon the document" was
continued until tho afternoon of the
4th, and, says Jefferson, might have
run on Interminably at any other season of the year. But the weather was
oppressively warm, and the hall in
which the deputies sat was close to a

South Africa's first diamonds were
paid for in cow-s. The btory is told by
Joseph B. Robinson, one of tbe wealthy
pioneers of that country. In 187!) be
gave eight oxen and 'a wagon loaded
with sugar and tobacco to a native in
exchange for a twenty-tbree carat
gem. ''The news spread like wildfire
through the countryside that a white
man was giving away wagons and
oxen for bite of st,one," he says. "1
set all the natives who came to work
to seek for diamonds'on one side of tbe
Vaal river, and I brought up my owu
fifty men to bunt for diamonds among
the bushes and scrub on tbe oilier'side
of'tbe stream. I had bought the land
on both sides of the river, so that 1
was working on my own property.
Next morning at sunrist?, when 1 was
having'my coffee, I was startled by
a loud hullabalooing, and, looking
out,' I saw the wh'ole gang of my men
rushing toward me In a state of wild
excitement.      , ■ '
"One of them had found a diamond
of good size. They' all had come''to
see what I would 'do with it. , 'What
will you give, me for it?' said the
finder.. '1 will give you ten cows,' I
replied and sent the man into the herd
to take his pick, He marked ten of
the best cows as his own. The men
bad never dreamed of making, such a
bargain. Ten cows for a bit of stone!
Off-they went again and found diamonds'every day. -They became rich,
and I accumulated a good store of
precious stones: „ (
"After we had accumulated a large
quantity we decided we would'better
send them to London. We made a belt
full of small pockets, in each" of which
we placed a diamond. When the, belt
,was filled my'partner girded it about
his body and started for Cape Town.
He never, took'off the belt until he
reached London. And' it 'was in this
way' .tbe„rlrst consignment of African
diamonds' reached London." ,      ,     >

The city boy on a visit to the country
is often puzzled in trying to distinguish
black walnuts and butternuts in the
green state. . The leaves are almost
alike, being compound and having a
variable number of leaflets arranged on
a long stem. The butternut'stem ha**
from nine to seventeen leaflets, and the
black walnut from fifteen to twenty-
three. The teeth ou the latter are larger
and sharper than those on the butternut
and lack the fuzzy stem, but the real
distinguishing feature Is the odor. Having once smolled the crushed leaves of
a butternut and a black walnut, a person can never fall to know them thereafter.—St. Nicholas.

The Sunday 'World of the 20th August. •
For he was the driver of the car—in
one of the wllc"*.=>t rides that ever happened In theso parts.
It was on Monday evening, between
8 and 9 o'clock, when the 'phone rang/
down Into the Auto and Supply Co.'a

"Yes," said Mr. Smith. - "What is it?
"jDr.   is speaking.    Have you a

"Well,  we don't make a practice ol
sending cars out at night, on hurry-up

"Out Sutton way—nine miles pas',

r"Whew! That's over. GO miles."
„ "Yes, and it's a case of life' and
death?' said the doctor. "I've Just got
a 'phone message'from ,the local doctor. Unless another.doctbr and myself
can get out there to-night there's not
the ghost of a chance ot saving the patient. There's no train now. And if
we wait, till the first train It's a three-

garage for,a few minutes. One of the

from the garage. ,The party of Ave

made no difference.*' , That car , was
scheduled to'run through,to nine mUes
past Sutton, if possible without a stop.
Once out of' the city and the car was
opened -up. The big lamps glared into
the' dark and the datk was as black
as ink;1 not even, a 'dash > o£, lightning

"" the first' s'top was ,made. Five minutes
were consumed here, in loojdng over
the engine. Then tlie party started on
again. Another stop was made at King,
but no more-till Sutton was,reached.
Sutton is >a village. Folks were -all
abed by now; scarcely a light anywhere, but those big lamps on the
auto. The east wind was now a gale,
with spits of rain in It, and'there was
still nine miles to cover—after a 13-
minute halt to" doctor up the car. From
some of the villagers directions were
■got as to the rest of the'journey.
"What's the time now,'doctor?" asked   the  driver.
"Eleven o'clock," said the doctor.
,    "Are you all ready back there?"
"All.ready," replied the nurse, who
was the only lady in the party.     -
'It was raining in gusts when the
house was reached. The hour was then
11.20, and the odometer on tne car read
63 miles, which was an average, not
counting the stops, of nearly 30 miles
an hour.
, The rest of the story .was not much
in thcautomobilists line. His part of
the business was done—for the present
at least. Up to that point, the doctors
had done nothing but sit tight in the
tonneau . Now it was their turn to do
their work. The woman .was still alive,
but In as critical a condition as any
woman could be and live. An operation was immediately decided on. Just
how much of It had been rehearsed
during the ride out the chauffeur never knew, for his hand was on the wheel.
And while his assistant worked with
the car out in tho shed, getting her
ready for the home tiip*hc sat in the
house waiting for the doctors to reap.-
It was long past midnight and the
rain driving in dismal sheets on the
east wind when the door ot the bedroom opened and tho three medical
men came out.
"Well, doctor, how la sho?" asked
the anxious farmer.
"Tho operation was successful," replied the doctor. "If we had been
three hours later no operation would
have been necessaiy."
