If he could only gain'it!  He was a poor boy." Tt had been-hard  work for him to complete the academy  course.    But by doing    whatever    ho  found to do, outside of school houi��s,  arid patient, persistent study.' he had  succeeded in not. only keeping up with'  This class, but in practically leading it.  'He 'w'as looked upon as the'member of  the graduating class who   was   most  ���likely to carry off the honor3 a-i .the  'coming 'commencement.  '   H13 heart was sefc upon obtaining a  thorough education,'  out   it   seemed  "probable that his school days must Lena  'with the completion"of the   academy  ^equrse'.    But  wli'en: the possibility pf  'securing a scholarship in college wais'  "preseiited   a   great- hope took possesr  eion of him.

' "That'a  'the' best "anyone can do "  He had one rival m'his class. That  rivai was Robert Torrey, the son of'the  rone rich man of Brandon. He was a f el-  'low'of gd'pd natural ability, 1 ut being  'a. rich man's son had interfered with  his progress in many ways. He had  not felt the spur of necessity, as had  John Darryll, and the result was that  he had become/*areleas and lacked am;  ^ition. lie ' would :gp' through school  'because it wes expected that one in' hia  position would do so, but not because  he cared very much about the education which a college course is supposerj  to represent.  " He recognized the fact that in John  Darrj U he had' a rival,-who was quite  likely to' carry off the honors of the  class. He respected John, as did all  who knew the raanly young fellow, but  that did not prevent him from cherish-  'ing a feeling of jealousy toward hirh.  It seemed to Robert that the honors  ought naturally to come to him, because he occupied a social position  which the other did riot, ne did not  care about the scholarship as a scholarship, put itwotiid'gratify his pride  to win it away from'his rival, and so  he made up his mind 'to secure it if it  were possible to do so.  "I suppose you're going to try for the  priz��?'.' he said'to John one day.  "Yin, I am," answered John, fraakly,  "You will, of course?"  "CertainljVresporided Robert. "And  I mean to win. I give you fair warning  of'that."        '��������������� ' '  "All right, if you win fairly," answered John, with one of his bright,  pleasant smiles that made his face attractive. "L-shall try very hard to get  the Btart of you, but, of course, X may  fail to do eo, li I do, you may be very  euro thtvt it won't- bo booauso I didn't  ,do my biast."  "Of course, the prize Uea between us,"  Baid Robert. "Both of us know, that  no one else stands any chance of getting it. It'a you and I���and I'm go-bog-  to win."

Just about that time President Jackson was obliged to go away  for a fortnight, and he announced to  the graduating class just before his departure that the orations were to bo  handed to Prof. Fay, the Hocrotary of  the faculty, for examination.   ,  John Darryll .put a great deal of  honest, conscientious work on his oration. He wrote and rewrote it. He was  not content with it as long as he saw a  chance of improving it.  "There!" he said, as he finished  copying it for the last time. "That ia  all I can do with it.

A parachute can be guided  n-ndily on the down trip, but you can't  steer a balloon. To guide a parachute  out of barm's way a practiced band  can tilt it one way or tbe other, spill  out air and thus work it to where vou  want to land or to avoid water, trees  clmmiej's or church spires:  "Circus ascensions are generally  made in the evening. When the sun  goes down, the wind goes down. The  balloon then shoots into tbe air, and  the parachute drops back on tbe circus  lot or not far away.'  "A balloon is made of 4 cent muslin  and weighs about i'.OO pounds. A parachute -Is made of 8 cent muslin. Tho  rope that secures tbe parachute is cut  with a knife. Tbo aeronaut ck-ops  Hilly 100 feet before the' parachute be-  wins to fill. It must lill if you're up  high enough. Invariably the fall is  head first. When the parachute begins to fill,'the descent is less'rapid,  and finally when the parachute has  finally .filled, it bulges out'with a pop.  Thou the aeronaut climbs on to bis trapeze and guides the parachute to a safe  landing.

A re4  porter of tiio Sun hearing of the wonderful    effects     which     Dr.   Williams'  -Pink Pills have had on Miss Huskin-  soa, called at her-homo to enquire into  tlie  truth     of  the  rumor.      After  stating   the'reason   of  his   visit,     he  was kindly received  by Mrs.  Huskin.-  son,   who    gave. ,hiin     the  following  facts of tbe cure:   "Some years ago."

She  had    frequent headaches,    was - very  pale,    and    lhe  least  exertion  would  gVeaUy  fatigue  her.   Y/s   thought     a  change might wm ho'r ��ood and consequently she' went on a visit, to Toronto. While,* there she was advised to  try   Iir.   Williams''.Pink  Tills and    at  once purchased a supply." ��*c-fore she  had finished the second' box she noted  a marked change for  the better,  her  appetite'improved,  her  color  returned,! the feeling of exhaustion had disappeared,   'and  by   the time she'had  taken hull a dozen, boxes she was enjoying the best-of health', and all her  old-time    vigor     had   returned.       Alr  though  her   work    in    tlie  Salvation  Army is hard  and exposes her to all  kinds of weather, she has since been  able  to  do   it   without  the  least   in-'  convenience.

Remembering the benefit my  daughter.had received from Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, 1 decided lo use  them, and before I had taken half a  dozen boxes I felt fully recovered and  have been in the best of health ever  since.

Unless she is a hostess a lady need not  rise when a gentleman is introduced to  her.  "A- man is known by the company he  keeps;" this applies equally to a woman.  When shopping, do not order assistants about: a lady never forgets to be  thoughtful for those who servo her.  When visiting, conform t9 the rules of  the house-in which you are "staying; a'  visitor should always boar this iu mind.  No lady would turn and look behind  her in the street; the, girl whp. does so  directly courts unpleasant " atteutions  from'men who are passing.'  Pahmelee's.Pjxi^s possess the power of  acting specifically upon the diseased organs,  stimulating to, action ,the dormant "energies  of the system, thereby removing disease.

Though -this   establishment  'claimed  to furnish  "accommodations  for man and beast," it'had no stable  for horses, and all its lodgers had to  feleep iii bunks in one room, while bread  and bacon constituted thojoill of fare,  'with  now and   then "sugarless coffee.  The "extras" were composed wholly ol  Jjad cigars, strong cheWing'tobaccoand  Jwhislty "of a kind- so miich viler than th6  ordinary fluid thai, oiie drink of it has  been known to'prcduce all the effects  bf  delirium tremens'on a man unaei  Sustomedcto it," and it always produced  'a homicidal mania in^ those   who   indulged in it as often as once a week.  '   The bar of  the Great Western was  ���fhe rendezvous,  the headquarters,' for  all  the  miners   and teamsters in the  vicinity, and you may be sure that it  was a constant resort for the gambler?  and   desperadoes  who  alwaj-s  swarm  about  a new  mining  town  like fiieu  about a sugar hogshead in July.-  For the accommodation of the latter  class, .with whom he was in full sympathy, and with an ey�� to his own gain  '���ha-had only one eye���the landlord of  j.he Gr6at Western had fitted up a. piaoe  for playing faio, and "a number <?f pin^  tables on which'thos^? jo inclined���^and  it was surprising hdw "many were so  inclined���could play ^jjat alluring but  'mo'st uncertain '^anae' e;alled poker.  '"' At thi�� tiigie 'fhere 'j.vere only two  woiciieh in Fairplay, viz,., Mrs. Chamber-  Jain, "the yvii& o'f the principal mine  superintendent, and Lizzy Chamberlain,  Ker daughter.  Somo men, with wives and daughters  at- home in ���the states, rather, blamed  Mr.Chamberlain for subjecting his fam-  ���ily to the hardships inseparable from  such a life, but, had 5hey known "that  thg devoted wife and daughter insisted  on accompanying" him a"nd (sharing his  trial's, they-would not have been bo hard  in their judgment. .. "  ' Arthur Lyons, a fine young fellow of  four and'twenty, was Mr. Chamberlain's  assistant, and as he boarded with his  employer it was pretty generally _con:  pedpd that he Jvad "the inside track'"'so  far ast Lizzy was concerned, and that  their marriage was only a question of  jime.  There was, however, in Fairplay, one  man who emphatically refused to believe tha't Lizzy Chamberlain looked  kindly on Arthur Lyons, and this man  was known os ".'Bed" Sniv-ely, the first  name being given to designate his complexion find the sanguine'color of his  hair.  Bad Snivel}- wished to be known as  ."The ..fountain {Terror,?' and he tried  hard 'to havo ihe nani�� aWa-eh to himr  pelf, but as the majority of the miner*?  looked "ixpon him as a nuisance'rather  tha'n a terror the n&jpe did ;iot stick  ro spy great extent.

With the brazen effrontery of his.  class, Red Snively made himself very  objc-ctlonable to Lizzy Chamberlain, by  Ms disgusting attentions; so much so,  indeed, that she dreaded to ven't-ure out  unless accompanied by her father or  Arthur Lyons.  On one occasion tbe la'tter told Red  Snively very emphatically that his conduct was dieagreeafble'toMiss Chamber-  Iain, and that it must be stopped, nnd  this was said with such calm emphasis  that the (bully was not left in any  doubt as to the young man's meaning  nor of his determination to enforce his  request.  In addition to its many other uses the  Great Western was the post office at  which the weekly���more often the  monthly-���mail was delivered.  One rainy afternoon after lhe mail  had com�� in Arthxir Lyons went up to  get.lft.e ever-nvelcome letters and papers  from the east. ���   ������'  While he was. .leaning, against the  "No more fighting here," shouted a  number of men, .rushing in between  Arthur and the man whom the landlord of the Great Western was'helping  from the floor, "If there's to be shoot-  in' let it me done fair a nidi square outside under the rules of tlie code, and not  in a crowded bar whar innocent inen  may get poppedover."  "I a#ree "to" fiat!" reared Red Snively, who lad now recovered himself,  "Landlord-,"you'll act as my second.'*'  "I'll do that and take your place if  you go dowu,"' replied the landlord,  who was only little less of a brute thaii  the man he waschampionh.-g. / -  "And I'll act' for this gentleman,"  said a tall man, who had been sitting  unnoticed since he reached the place,  a few hours before, with i->*.e mail-car-  rier. lie had a long;" black heard, his  hat was slouched, and Lis cuat Collar  turned up so that but little, of his face  could be seen, but there was thatjn his  voice and bearing that convince'd the  lookers-on, thaf. he was no ordinary  person.

"I'll do nothing of the kind," replied  the'stranger, in tones that evinced coolness and deten.nination; "this bully,'!  pointing' to Snively with his revolver,  f is a good shot; my man is no��.

"Who are you?" demanded Snively,  his countenance purple and his thick  lips trembling with excitement.  "I am George Pierce, the twin brother  of Henry Pierce whom you murdered in  St. Louis one year ago."  The stranger threw off his cloak and  false beard, and stood before the cowed  desperado���Hyperion facing a Satyr.  "Stand back, men, and let us have it  out.
