So, later in the day, she 'prepared* her  long unused finery to such good purpose that wheno her escort 'called for  her that eieniug he believed her the  ' loveliest of women.    ,  " Upon'their arrival at the hotel he regarded her, with <>a fresh access of  pride, for the function proved to bear  little resemblance  to  a  mining camp  .party. The women l wore handsome  gowns, and every man was in evening  dress,  ythe wide hall ran the length  " of   the   hotel   and   was   flanked--'with  'boxes, while its floor -was (like polished  elass  and  its   walls   effectively  decorated       "' '" ' -    ,  V t- J *"  , "Oh, how lovely!" -exclaimed Ilelen  as she first*caught sight of it "It's  just like home." ��� '  "I've1 seen quick, rising cities be-  l'fore," lie said, '"but nothing bke .this.  StHb if these northerners can build a  railroad in a month and a 'City in a  summer why shouldn't they have symphony orchestras,, and Louis Quinze  ballrooms?" :  "I know you're a splendid dancer,"  she sold.  "You shall be my judge and jury.  I'll sign this card as often as I dare  without the certainty of violence at  the hands of these young men, and the  rest of the time I'll smoke in the lobby.  I don't care to dance with any one but  'j*ou."  After the first waltz he left her surrounded by partners and made his way  out of the ballroom. This was his first  relaxation since landing iu the north.  It was well not to become a dull boy,  he mused, and as he chewed his'cigar  he pictured, with au odd thrill, quite  unusual with him, that slender, gray  eyed girl, with ber coiled mass of hair,  her ivory shoulders and merry smile,  lie saw her float past to the measure  of - a two-step and caught himself resenting the thought of another man's  enjoyment of the girl's charms even  for an instant.  "Hold. on. Alec," he muttered.  "You're too old a bird to lose your  head." Ilowe^ er, he was waiting for  her before the time for their next  dance. She seemed to have lost a part  of her gayety.  "What's the matter? Aren't you enjoying yourself?"  "Oh, yes," she returned brightly.  "I'm having a delightful time"  When ho came for his third dance  r?he wns more distrait than ever. As  he led her to a seat thoy passed a  group of womp-n. among whom were  Mrs. Champa iu and others whom he  know to be wives of men prominent In  the town. He had seen borne of them  at li.i in Judge Ktlllman's house and  therefore was astonished when they returned hi.s greeting, but ignored Ileien.  She .shrank slightly, and he realized  that there was something wrong. Tie  oould not guess what. Affairs of men  he conJU cope with, but the subtleties  of women uero out of his realm.  "What ails those people? Have they  offended you?"  "I want you to nnswer a qnostJoa.  No' beating about  the bush.    Understand?   I'm blunt, and I want you to  be."  "All right." .  '  "Ybnr wife has been entertained at  Miss Chester's house. I've seen hor  there. Tonight sbe refuses to speak  to the girl. She cut her dead, and I  want to know what it's about.-"  "How should I know?"  ,"If you don't know,'I'll ask yon to  find out"  Till: other shook his head amusedly,'  nt -nhic-h McNamara  flared up.  "I say you will, and you'll make  your wife apologize before she, leaves  this ball, too, or you'll answer io me,  man io man. I won't stand to have a  gUi like Miss Chester cold decked by  ���a bunch of mining camp swells, and  that goes as it lies." In his excitement  Mc.Vsunar.i reverted to his western  idiom.  The pther^uid not n?ply,at once, for it  is embarrassing fo deal with a person  who disregards the conventions Utterly,,  aud at tlie same time has, the inclination and, force to compel obedience.  The boss' reputation had gone "abroad.  "Well���er���I know About it in a general way, but of>course I don't go much  on such 'things. You'd better let it  drop." '  "Go on."  "There has been a lot of talk among  the ladles about���well, er���the fact'is,  it's that young Glenister. Mrs. Chanl-  plan had the next sfiiteropm to-fthem���  cr���him���I should say���on the, way up  from the States, aud 'she saw ,things.  Now, as far as-I'm concerned.'a girl  ran do as she pleases, but Mrs. Cham-  piau has her own ideas of propriety.  From ,what my wife could learn,  there's some truth iu the story, too, so  you can't blame her." ,_    ' i  With a word' McNamara could have  explained the -gossip and made this  man put his'-wifCirighii-jfQrclng through  her an elucidation of, tlie silly affair  In such a way as to spare Helen's  feelings-and cover, the, busy tongued  magpies'with confusion'.

She flung her wraps over a chair,  storming back and forth like a little  fury. Her eyes were starry with tears  of anger, her face ' was flushed, her;  lfaiids worked nervously. lie leaned  against the mantel, watching her  through his cigar smoke,    , \  "You ,needn't tell ,me,", he' said at  length.

E Lyttelton, heodmaater  of ]*oii Collece, m a speech at_uw  opening of the" new elotoentary facnoo  at Slough, contrasted the care ta*ea  of school child!en in the present day  with the ucntment .which they^received 300 jears ago. and incidentally  pointed out how much happier hng-  lisJi  schoolboys   are   than   the   UUie  boys of Geinmny ���   ,   .        .-1  It was atniuing to Teflect, he said,  that our forefatheis were able_ to  build up this ernpiie out of nothing,  hardly knowing what they were doing.  They "whacked" the Spaniards, aim-  plv because thev had nothing to do  at* home, and took all the best part  of the World from the French' for the  same reason.' H seemed most amazing to remember that these men were  brought up under conditions absolutely- barbarous. People had come to  such a sUite of mind that whenever  ao child expressed a wish for anything, miles', it' was at once gratified,  thev immediately, wrote k> the newspapers and  made   a  remonstrance.  These 'were the sort of things  Shakespeare, had to do. He had to  be ' in his place in the school at 6  o'clock al! through the year. The,,  children had" to stay in school three,  hours before breakfast.

FIRST ONTARIO CURLERS.  Fergus   Club    Played   With   Wooden  Blocks   In  the  Thirties.  The Fergus Curling Club is the  oldest club m Ontario. This year  sees the seventy-fifth anniversary of  the club's establishment. '  , -The original members of, the Ferpus  club m the thirties were a "byordin-  ?.r.V ��.   Scotchmen,   and   in   the  thirties and well into the forties the  club payed tha game with blocks of  wood, turned out in shape similar to  the stones now used. Some of these  blocks still exist and can be seen by  visiting curlers.  The early curlers played on a part'  of the Grand Itiver called the "Washing Green." the place where- the  early settlers used to wash their  sheep in the ranid current below the  old mill darn.' Here the curlers.made  the rocks' ring with their roar and  rattle. The Beavers', Dam, at'the far  end of Perry's meadow, was another  favorite, cosey spot, where the curlers  went for "a day o't" -when 'the ice  was bad on the river or the wind  "too'' nippy," whistling, between the  towering rocks at the "Washing  Green"' But that'��� is all' past and  gone., The Fergus "brothers o' the  broom" now play the game in a fine  modern, covered "rink.  , The following lines are from a "song  composed' by one of the old Fergus  curlers and which used tp be roared  and ranted on ���festal, occasions when  the club met around the "Beef and;  Greens," lang syne^      *',':.

Menagerie-born animals cost on an  average ��10. A lioness has even sold  for under ��4; while, on the other  hand,   iC'MO tc ��300  is  not too  big  a  ���price to ask for an exceptionally line  specimen ot, lion.  .Pumas���occasionally described as  lions���are not in such demand; ��5  will often buy one; fair average spe-  ciinens fetch' ��lfl', ��20, aud a few ��30.

If a Chinaman wishes for happiness  and peace iu this world and the next  he feels obliged to consult his majesty  the dragon as to where his house shall  be built and his grave be made.  Through the earth, so say the Chinese,  flow two currents ��� the dragon and  the tiger. Now, for a man to have  good fortune in life or, as he would  say in "pigeon English," to "catchee  chance," his house must be put in a  certain position in reference to these  currents. If he is to rest quietly in  his grave, that also must be correctly  placed. So called "wise men" make a  business of choosing favorable sites  for homes and graves, professing by  means of a wand and incantations and  other kinds of tomfoolery to' be able  to detect -the presence of the dragon  and the tiger and to tell in what direction they flow.
