IT��� cca9c��o��8->ea<igeiqif s-��<������������-��e��g��o������5>��8J  (Continued)  CHAPTER XII.  At last th'e answer came and it  was Maddy who brought it to "Guy.  She had been home that day. and on  her return had ridden by the office  aa Guy had requested her to do. She  saw' the letter bore a foreign postmark, also that it was in the delicate  handwriting of some female, but the  sight did not affect her in the least.  Maddy's heart was far too heavy that  day to care for a trifle, and so, plae-  ing the letter carefully in her basket,  she kept on to Aikenside.  The letter was decidedly Lucy-ish  in all that pertained to her "dearest  darling," her "precious Guy" but.  when she came to Maddy Clyde her  true womanly nature spoke; and  Guy, while reading it, felt how good  she was.    Of course he might teach  . Maddy Clyde all he wished to teach  her, and it made Lucy love him better to know that he was willing to  do such things: She wished she was  tliere to help him; they would open  a schoo1 for all the poor, but she  did not know when mamma' would  let her come. That pain in her side  was not any better, and her cough  had come earlier this season than  last. The physician had advised a  winter in .Naples, and they were going before very. long. Then followed  a few more lines sacred to the,lover's  eye, lines which told how pure was  the love which sweet Lucy Atherstone  bore for Guy Remington, who,: as he  - read, felt his heart beat with a throb  of pain, for,Lucy spoke to him now  for the first time of what might possibly be.  "I've dreamed about it nights,"  Bhe said. "Pve thought about it days,  and tried so hard to be reconciled;*  to feel that if God will have it so, I  am willing to die before you have  ever called me your little wife, or I  have ever called you husband. Heaven ia. better'than earth, I know, and  I am sure of going there, I think,'  but oh, dear Guy, a life with you  looks so very sweet that sometimes  your little Lucy shrinks from the dark  grave which would hide her forever  from you. Guy, you once said you  never prayed, and it made me feel so  badly, but you will when you get  this, 'won't you?  You  will  ask  God  . to make me well, and maybe He will  hear you. Do, Guy, please do pray  for your Lucy, far away over the sea."  Guy could not resist that touching  appeal, "to pray for his little Lucy,"  and though his lips were all unused  to prayer, bowing his head upon his  hands he did ask-that she might live,  beseeching * the Father to send upon  him any oalamity save this one-  Lucy must-.be spared. , Guy felt bet-  . ter for having prayed, it was something- to tell Lucy, something that  would please her well, and though  his heart yet was very sad, a part  of the load, was lifted, and.he could  think of Lucy now without the bitter  pain. her letter' first had cost him.  Was there nothing that would save  her, nobody who could cure her? Her  disease was not hereditary; surely  it might be made.to yield; had English physicians no skill, would not an  American do better? It was possible,  'and if that mother of Lucy's would  let ' her - come where doctors knew  something.. she might get well; but  she wouldn't; she was determined  that no husband should be burdened  with an ailing wife, and so if the  mountain would not come to Mahomet,' why, Mahomet must go to the  mountain, and Guy fairly leaned from  hid r-jiair as b" exclaimed: "T have it  ���doe!���he's the most skillful man I  ever knew, T'll send him to England; send him to the Atherstones:  he shall go to Naples with them ap  their family physician; he can cure  Lucy; I'll speak to him the very next  time he comes here"; and with another   burden   lifted   from   his   mind.  _Guy~began_to~wonder_where_Maddy_  was.  He knew she had returned, for  Flora had said she brought the letter, and he was about going out; in  hopes of finding her and Jessie, when  he heard her in the hall, as she answered some question of Mrs. Noah's;  stepping to the door, he asked her to  come in, saying he would, if she  chose, appoint the lessons talked  about so. long. Ordinarily. Maddy's  eyes would have* flashed with delight,  for she had anticipated so much from  these lessons; , now, however, tliere  was a sad look upon her face, and  she could scarcely keep from crying  as she came at Guy's bidding, and sat,  upon the sofa, near to his armchair.  Somehow it rested Guy to look at  Maddy Clyde, who, having recovered  from her illness, seemed the very embodiment of perfect health, a health  which glowed and sparkled all ovei  her bright face; showing itself as well  in the luxurinnce of her glossy hnit  aa in  the  brilliancy of her complex  Ion and the,flash of her lustrous eyes.  How Guy wished that Lucy could  share in what seemed almost a superfluity of, health-, and "why shouldn't  ehe? Dr. Holbrook had cured Maddy;  Dr. Holbrook could cure Lucy; and  so for the present dismissing that  .from his mind, he turned to Maddy.  and said the time had come when he  could give those promised 'lessons,  asking if she- would commence tomorrow, after she was through with  Jessie, and what she would prefer to  take up first.  ' "Oh. Mr. .Remington," and Maddy  ��� began to cry, "I am afraid I cannot  ���stay! They need me at home, or may.  Grandpa said so and T don't want to  fto, though T. know it's wicked not to.  :Oh. dear! dear!"  ��� Here Maddy broke down entirely,  sobbing so convulsively that Guy be-  *came alarmed, and wondered what he  ourht to do to quiet her.  Controlling her voice as well as she'  was able. Maddy told him how the  physicians at-'the asylum had written  thnt as Uncle Joseph would in all  human probability never be perfectly  sane, and .as a 'Shange of scene would  .do him. good. Mr. Markham had better try taking him a while; that having been spoken with upon the subject, he seemed as anxious as a little  child, even crying when the night  came around and he wns not at home,  as he expressed*it. "They have kept  him so long," Maddy said, "that  Frand pa thought it his duty to re  .lieve them-.'.though he can't well afford it, and ?so he's coming next week,  and jsracdma will  need, someone - to  neip, 'anil ' r "must go. 1 "Know it's  wrong, but I do not want to go, try  as I will."  It was a gloomy prospect to exchange Aikenside for the humble home  where poverty had its abode, and it  was not very strange that Maddy  should shrink from it at first. She  did not stop to ask what was her duty,  or think how much happiness her  presence might give her grandparents,  or how much she might cheer' and  .imuse the weak imbecile, her uncle.  She was but human, and so, when  Guy began to devise ways of preventing her going, she listened, while the  pain at her heart grew less as her  faith in Guy grew stronger. He would  drive down with her to-morrow, he  ���said, and see what could be done.  Meanwhile she must dry her eyes and  go to Jessie, who was calling her.  ':'. As Guy had half expected, the doctor came around that evening, arid  inviting him into" his private room  Guy proceeded at once to unfold his  scheme, asking  him  first:  "How much he probably received  a year for his services as physician."  The doctor could, not tell at once,  but after a little thought, made an  estimate, and then inquired why Guy  had  asked  the question.  "Because, doc, I have a project on  foot. Lucy Atherstone is dying with  what they call consumption. I don't  believe those old fogies understand  her disease, and if you, will go over  to England and -undertake her cure,  I'll give you just double what you'll  get by- remaining here. They are going to Naples for the winter, and .undoubtedly, will spend some time in  Paris. It will be just the . thing for  you. Lucy and her mother will'. be  glad of your services when they know  I sent you. Lucy likes you now. Will  you go? You can trust Maddy to me.  I'll take good care that she is worthy  of you when you come back."  At the mention of Maddy's inimi!  the doctor's brow darkened. He was  sure that Guy meant kindly, but it  grated * on his feelings to be thus  joked about what he knew was a  stern reality. Guy's project appeared to him at first a most insane one,  but as he continued to enlarge upon  it, and the advantage it would be to  the doctor to travel in the Old World,  a feeling of enthusiasm was kindled  in his own breast; a desire to visit  Naples and France, and the places  he had dreamed of as & boy, but  never hoped to see, Guy's plan began to look more feasible, and possibly he' might have yielded but for  one thought and that a thought of  Maddy Clyde. He would* not leave  her alone with Guy. even though Guy  was true to Lucy as steel. He would  stay; he would watch; and in time  he would win the young girl waiting'  now for him in the hall below, waiting to tell him 'mid blushes of shame  and tears of regret how she had meant  to pay him with her very first wages,  but now Uncle Joseph was coming  home, and he . must wait a little  longer.  ��� "Would he, could he be so good ?"  and unmindful of Guy's presence  Maddy laid her hand confidingly upon his, arm, while-her soft eyes looked beseechingly into his.   ,  How the doctor wished . Guy was  away, and kindly taking the hint,  Guy left them together in the lighted  hall. Sitting down on the sofa, and  making Maddy sit beside him, the  doctor began:  "Maddy, you know I mean what-I  say, at least to you, and when I tell  you that 1 never think of that bill  except when you speak of it, you  will believe me. I know your grandfather's circumstances, and I know,  too, that I did much to induce your  sickness, consequently if I made one  out at all, it would be a very small  one."  He did not rot any further, for  Maddy hastily interrupted him, and  while, her eyes flashed with pride ex-  claimed:  "I will not be a charity patient!  I say I will not! I'd be a hired girl  before I'd do it!"  It troubled :the doctor to see Maddy  so disturbed about dollars and cents  ���to know that poverty was pressing  its iron hand upoij, her young heart;  and only because she was so young  did he refrain from offering her then  and there a resting place from the  ills of life in his sheltering love. But  she wasYnot prepared, and he should  only defeat his" object" by his rashness, so he restrained*himself, though  he did pass his arm partly around  her waist-as he said to her:  "1 tell you, Maddy, honestly, that  when I want that bill liquidated I'll  ask you. I certninly will, and I'll  let you pay it, too. Does that satisfy you?"  Yes, Maddy wns satisfied, and nfter  a  little  the   doctor   continued:  "By the way. Mnddy, I hnve some  idea of going tc Europe for a tew  months, or a year or more. Yon know-  it does a physician good  to'study .--u.  while in   Paris.    What do vou think>.  if it?    Shall   I   go?"  The  doctor   hnd   become  quite  ne-;.  cessary   to   Maddy's   happiness.    Ha,  it was to whom she confided all her'  little troubles, and to lose him would-  be a terrible loss, and so she answer-'-  ed  that  if  it  would   be  much   better  for him she supposed he ought to go,  though' she   should   miss   him   sadly  and. he so  lonely  without him.  "Would you, Maddy? Are you in  earnest? Would you be the lonelier  for my being pone?" the doctor asked, eagerly. With her usual truthfulness. Maddy replied: "Of course  T should"-; and when, after the conference was ended, the doctor stood  for a moment talking with Guy, ere  bidding him good-night, he said: "I  think T shall not accept your European proposition. Somebody, else must  cure  Lucy."  The next day, as Guy had proposed,  ���he rode down to Honedale, taking.  Maddy with him, and offered so many  reasons why she should not be called  home that the old people began to  relent, particularly as they saw how  Maddy's heart was set oij the lessons  Guy was going to give her. She might  never have a like opportunity, the  young man said, and as a good education would put her in the way of  helping them when they were older  and needed her more, %it was their  duty to leave her with tHem.

All this  ���ounded very feasible, especially as  it was backed up by Maddy's eyes,  brimful of tear? and fixed pleadingly  upon her grandfather. T?he sight of  them, more than Guy's arguments, influenced the old man, who decided  that, if grandma were willing, Maddy  should stay, unless absolutely needed  at the cottage. Then the tears burst  forth, and winding her arms around  her grandfather's neck,. Maddy sobbed out her thanks, asking if it were  selfish and wicked and naughty in  her to prefer learning rather than  9taying there.       ' Y  "Not if that's your only reason,"  grandpa replied. "It's right to want  learning, quite right; but if my child  is biased by the fine things at Aikenside, and hat5*-.? to-come back to her  poor home, because 'tis poor, I should  say it was very natural, but not exactly  right." ���  Maddy was very happy after it was  settled, nnd chatted cay ly with her  grandmother, while Guy went out  with grandfather, who wished to  speak with him alone.  "Young man." he said, "you have  taken a deep interest in me and mine  since I first came to know you, and I  thank you for it all. ,1 have nothing to give in return except my prayers, and those'you hnve every day;  you and that doctor. Somehow you  three come in together. You're uncommon eood to Mnddy. 'Taint everyone like you who would offer and assist on learning her. I don't know  what you do it fqr. You seem hon;  est.

Guy attempted to speak, but grandpa motioned him to be silent, while  he went on:     '  "I do not suspect you, and that's  why T trust her with you. My old  eyes are dim. .but 1 can see enough  now to know-that, Maddy is beauti  ful. Her mother was so before her  and the Clyde? were a handsome race  My' Alice was elevated, folks thought  by-marrying Cnptnin ' Clyde, but 1  don't think soY She was pure and  grood as the'ahsrels, and Maddy is  much like her..onlv she has the ambition of the CH'des; has the taste  for evervthine n little above her.

Grandpa felt' relieved when he had  snid all this to Guy .who listened politely, smilins at the idea of his deceiving Maddy. and fully concurring  with grandpa in nil he snid of her  rare beauty and natural gracefulness.  On their return to the house grandnn  =howed Guy the bedroom intended for  Uncle Joseph, nnd Guy. as he glanced at the furniture, thoneht yithin  himself how he would send down from  Aikenside some-of the unused articles  piled nwav in tha. garret when he refurnished his house.

The well-known American anarchist,  Miss Emma Goldman, is in London.  After the international anarchist  conference at Amsterdam, which has  just concluded, she visited Paris, and  is now on a three months' lecture toui  in. England.  She spoke on the labor struggle in  America at the Holborn Town Hall.  In an interview, Miss Goldman said  that the Amsterdam conference had  been a great success.  "There were ninety delegates pres-  ant from anarchists of all nations,  and some very important points have  been cleared up," ahe said.  "One of the most interesting is the  decision to form in London an anarchist bureau, to which all anarchist  groups and organizations throughout  the world will be affiliated.  "This bureau will exist to aid, not  to govern. Each affiliated group will  retain perfect freedom of action and  ���policy. One important duty of the  bureau will be the collection of anarchist literature, so as to form the  archives  of  the movement."  Miss Goldman, who hails from New  York, has been for twenty years an  enthusiastic upholder of anarchistic  principles, and she will deliver lectures on social and economic subjects  and on literature during her stay in  England.  Asked as to the future of anarchy,  she expressed herself as very hopeful.  "I am not going to say that a state  of. anarchy will come to-day or tomorrow," she remarked, "but it is  coming very soon."  England, Miss Goldman thinks, has  produced the finest anarchists of the  world. Such men as Herbert Spencer  and . Darwin, she said, have done  great things foi the cause.  "England is undoubtedly the freest  country in the world; I mean politically the freest, but in no country  have I seen such depths of poverty,  not even in America."  Although to a great extent in sym-  Dathy with them. Miss Goldman is  by no means an p-^vocate of what she  describes as thf "daggers and bombs"  tyno 'of - revolutionary.  Speaking of the acts of violence  committed by anarchists of recent  years. Miss Goldman said: "I never  advocate such a course of action. I  do not know that I should be prepared to' go to such lengths myself,  and, conscnuentlv. I do not feel justified in urginsr others to do so.  "On the other hand. I do not blame  thos" extremists. The man driven to  steal from sheer want, and the man  driven to violence from sheer oppression, are both undeserving of blame."  In answer to a question as to whether she approved of the action _ of  fhe anarchist. Morales, in attempting  the lives of the King and Queen of  Sn.iin on thpir. wedding day, Miss  Goldman replied:.. "Society was responsible for creating such men as he,  and society must take the consequences."  BEGGARS HAVE JOURNAL  ITCHING ECZEMA'S  CAUSE AND CURE  Eczema'K*common to rich and poor,  old and young, and is neither contagious nor an indication of unclean-  liness, as some suppose.  Teething, improper food, indigestion',  vaccination, poisoning hy clothing or  from ivy, etc., are named among the  causes.  There is inflammation, redness,  heat, swelling, discharge, formation  of crust and all the time annoying,  troublesome itching and burning,  which often becomes so torturing us  to be almost unendurable.  This ever present itching is what  makes eczema so dreaded, and it is  this feature to which Dr.. Chase's  Ointment gives relief from almost tlie  first application.

A Link With the Past.

Although the well-known brick tower  probably dates only ��� from', Henry  VIII.'s day, Canonbury House is  supposed to have been built as long  ago as 1362, when Poictiers was a very  recent memory; and its palmiest days  were probiibly at .the close of the 16th  century, when it had" for tenant "rich  Spencer," one of London's most :fa-  mous chief magistrates.

SAYS IT DOES WONDERS  DRUGGISTS HEAR MUCH  PRAISE  FOR THIS  MIXTURE  Lots of Men and Women in Montreal  Having the Simple Home-Made  Mixture   Prepared  Some remarkable stories are being  told about this simple home-made  mixture curing Rheumatism and Kidney trouble. Here is the recipe *and  directions for taking: Mix by shaking  well in a bottle one -half ounce Fluid  Extract Dandelion, one ounce Compound Kargon, three ounces Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla. Take as  a .dose one teaspoonful after meals  and  at bedtime. -     -  No change need be made in your  usual diet, but drink plenty of good  water.  This mixture, writes one authority  in a leading Montreal newspaper, has  u peculiar tonic effect on the kidneys;  cleansing the clogged-up pores of the  eliminative tissues, forcing the kidneys to sift and strain from the blood  the uric acid and other poisonous  waste matter, . overcoming Rheuma-.  tism, Bladder and Urinary troubles  in a short while.  A Montreal druggist who has had  hundreds of calls for these ingredients  since the first announcement in the  newspapers stated that the people who  once try it "swear by it," especially  those who have Urinary and Kidney  trouble and suffer with Rheumatism.  The druggists in this neighborhood  say sthey can supply the ingredients,  which are easily mixed at home.  There is said to be no better blood-  cleansing agent or system tonic  known, and certainly none more  harmless or simple to use.  WHITE SLAVE TRAFFIC.  Important   Development   of   Internationa! Movement.  ;   An important conference has just  j been held, at Brussels in connection  j with the further development of in-  ' ternational effort for the suppression  i of the white slave -traffic.   The conference   was   composed   of   delegates  from    the    national    committees' in  Europe and America:   Mr. Coote, one  of    England's    representatives,    submitted a scheme for the closer and  fuller co-operation of the various national ' committees   with*  the   International Bureau of London.   This will,  in future be composed of seven Eng--  lish' members and 'one member from  each  national  committee,  the  whole  constituting   the   bureau,   and "being  responsible for the direction and 'organization of the entire work throughout-the world.    He also stated that  there   were   now   16   national   cbm-  mitte'es organized in as many countries, that most of them were energetically dealing with the suppression  of the traffic, and co-operating fully  with   their   respective   Governments.  One  of ihe other subjects discussed  was the question of the railway-station work in Europe.   Mr. Coote reported a large increase in the number  of    societies    at    present    supplying  workers at the various ports and railway stations for the purpose of meeting young women  on, their  first entrance into a strange home, city, or  nation.    After  an  interesting  debate  it was ^agreed that Mr. Coote should  invite {he Swiss society ("Les amies  de la jeune fille"), which founded the  railway-station   work   over   20   years  ago, to call a European conference of  all   societies   interested   in   this   particular branch of humanitarian work.

Revelations of a sensational charae-'  ter, and affording a lurid picture of  low life in Glasgow, have been made  by the Rev.  David  Watson,  St Clement's    Church.      At   the    Glasgow  Presbytery he submitted a motion to  "seriously consider  the grave social  problem of the lodging-houses in the  city, and the Church's duty in relation to the same."   Mr. Watson presented  a scathing indictment of the  "model" and other lodging-houses in  the city,.in which accommodation is  provided for 9,000 men and 8,000 women.    He said he had visited  them  all,   both   during   the   day   and   the  night.   How he managed that, and in  what garb he went, he was not going  to reveal.   Suffice it that when he had  completed his round he felt that he  had   been  through   an  inferno.    The  deg aded,  savage,   bestial -faces,  the  lew J gestures, and the foul language  we' e truly awful. 'The' scenes he witnessed  were unforgetable, lurid, and  horrible.   Such a mass of ruined humanity,     human     derelicts,     social  wrecks���creatures    who    once    were  men, and, sadder still,'' creatures who  were  once  women.    In  one  lodging-  house   every   woman   seemed   intoxicated.   Little did the "citizens of Glasgow dream  of the existence of that  vast under-world of wretchedness, degradation,   vice,   and   crime.    Referring to what he described as the lowest    circle    in    the    lodging-houses,  namely,   the   farmed-out   houses,   he  said    tliere    was   "no    use    mincing  matters.   The farmed-out house was a  den  of vice  pure  and simple.    Professor   Reid    seconded   the   motion,  which was adopted, and-a committee  was. appointed    to    investigate    the  whole matter and report.  HIS OWN JAILER.  History of a Prisoner In Monte Carlo  Reads Like a"n Opera Bouffe.  Should the Go*olds be extradited tc  Monaco and tried, one wonders what  A-ould happen to them in the event of  heir   being   found   guilty   of   wilful  nurder   by   the   Monegasque   court,  ind, in uniformity with the law, sentenced to death, writes Irene Osgood,  in The, Lor/don Daily Mail.  "Monaco  has no puillotine and no executioner,  and indeed no arrangements for dealing with criminals.  It is the place to recall the amusing  story told by Maupassant about a  murderer who was tried, convicted  and sentenced\ to death in Monte  Carlo. The authorities asked France  to loan them M. Doibler and his little  instrument, the "red widow." The  French Government consented to  oblige for the consideration of $5,000.  The prince thought this too dear, and  so applied to his brother in Italy.  Ttalv offered to do the thing, all included, for $3,400. This again was  found too dear. "The man is not  worth it," said the Monegasque authorities.  So the sentence of death was commuted to one of life imprisonment.  But there was no prison in Monaco,  and a jail had to be created for the  pxpress purpose of confiding this murderer, and a jailer had to be appoint-  nd. This state of things - lasted for.'  some months, and then the jailer,  died. .  The authorities at Monte Carlo,  when considering the appointment of  his successor, came to the conclusion  that the man, the one prisoner, was  costine the state a great deal of mon-  ev. So a commission visited him, and  told him that in future he would be  required to act as his own jailer. He  -rumbled a bit at this increase of sentence,-but complied. His meals used  '-) he sent down to him from one of  the hotels of the town, but one day  the scullion who brought him his dinner did not turn up in time, and so  the prisoner walked up to the hotel  and took his meal there. After that  he pot into the habit of going up to  the hotel for his meals; then, after a  stroll on the front, he used to return  t.) his prison and shut himself m.  But again the authorities found that  he was costing them too much, and  so one day they called him up and  told him that they were sick of seeing  him about the place and that he must  -lear out. He emphatically refused  to do anything of the kind. "You  sentenced me to penal servitude for  life." he argued, "and I expect to  work oift mv sentence. I have no  means of earning a livelihood since  vou created all the bother, and it is  t.) vou that I look for my sustenance.  to cut a lone story short, the Principality of Monaco was obliged to  settle an annuity.of 600 francs ($120)  a year upon the convict before he  would consent to accept his freedom  nnd leave the country. As soon as  this was arranged he took up his  "bode in a little cottage just over  thf Monaco border.  This is a true story, and the document fixing the-man's pension, toother with details about the payments, may be seen in the Monaco  Archives.      - .    ,  Tho late Princr* de Monaco was fond  ot telling this story in Parisian drawing-rooms, and, il I remember aright,  [ heard it on the same occasion as  did the late "Guy de Maupassant.

Nov. 7, 1783, In the  person of John Anstln, convicted on  the preceding Saturday of robbing  John Splcer and cutting and wounding, him In a cruel manner. In Wal-  ford's "Old and New London" It Is erroneously said that "the last criminal  executed here wus one Ryland. who  was hanged (slci for forgery in 1783."  William Ryland was executed on Aag  29, two months before the date of  Austin't, conviction, and many a poor  wretch made the fatal pilgrimage to  Tyburn In the Interval, hanging by  wholesale being tlie rule In those days.  The long procession westward had  been attended by such disgraceful  scenes that the authorities resolved to  hang criminals henceforth outside Newgate prison, straight from the condemned cell. Accordingly on Dec. 3,  1783, the recorder ordered the erection  of a seafifold In front of the jail, of  which a notice and descriptive engraving appear In the Gentleman's Magazine for the same'month, and on the  10th the new hanging place was inaugurated by the execution of ten  malefactors.���London Notes and Queries.

A toad which has awakened after  a sleep of centuries is a wonder exhibited by the ' zoological garden of  the City of Perth, Australia.  While'the actual period of its long  dream is still under discussion ,by  scientific men. it is generally believed that the toad sank into its blissful  sleep long before Columbus started  out to discover the new world.  The toad was discovered by a miner  ���not a mariner���and the alarm clock  which broke its rest was a stick of  dynamite. The miner was sinking a  shaft in a stratum of hard -cement  when his pick uncovered the animal.  He had no idea the toad was alive,  for it was still inanimate and its eyes  were transparent and without pupils.  But before it had been in the air a  long time it began .to show signs of  life, the optics assumed the same  shape as those*'of any other toad nnd  in a little while it was just as lively  -as-though-it-had-prone-to_sleep_only_  on the previous night.  How the tond got into the stratum  of cement and how its life was sustain-  e 1 in its long ppriod of inanimation,  without food, lif-ht or air, naturally  form subjects for investigation. But,  s > far, nothi-ng has been determined  on either point.  In their clever, roundabout way of  piecing things * together, scientific  men ar trying to get at the whole  story of the toad's sleep. But the  average citizen would he better satisfied rf the animal could talk.

The work of unloading proceeded  ihat night along a stretch nf nearly  three miles with the aid of flare  lamps. Hundreds of horses and carts  were occupied till past midnight carting away fish to the curing houses,  ind the Highland herring girls,, pursuing their work with the aid of naphtha torches, lightened their labors by  singing choruses.  Some boats were diverted to Grimsby to ease off the pressure. Hundreds  of baskets and barrels filled with herrings had to remain all night on the  quays. Every man in want of a job  was able to find one during the day.  One firm reported that, the average  catch of their fleet of a hundre<*V boats  was 130.000 fish.

The   most   amazing   cracksman   in  Europe,  the exact prototype in "real  life of "Raffles,", has''been arrested at  Munich   after  a  series   of  burglaries  probably unequalled in modern criminal  historv  by  one man.    He  is  a  Swede,  Cafllson  by  name, who prepared himself for his career as a burglar   by   serving   an   apprenticeship  as a locksmith.    Since then he has  posed  as  a nobleman,  an  author,  a  millionaire,  and  a diplomatist, with  consummate skill, living in princely  style in Berlin, Munich, Pans, Vienna  and other cities under different names  and   in  different   disguises.    All  the  time he has lived by the most daring  burglaries, usually at hotels, although  at times he was not averse from looting  the  private  residence  of a millionaire  or  an  art connoisseur.    He  has changed his role and his address  according  to  necessity,  and   avoided  nrrest with great skill,  although the  best-detectives-in-Europe-havo-been  searching for him  for months.    Car-  llson is described as a man of "very  gentlemanly"   .appearance,   with   refined tastes', and pronounced artistic  and   literary   inclinations.     He   was  a great favorite  among women, who  were ch.vmcd by his cvouisito manners.  Carllson was noted for his taste  in dress, and while living in -Vienna  in the guise of a, diplomat on leave  he is said to have inaugurated a new  fashion in neckties.    When .arrested.  Carllson   was   staying   at   the   most  fashionable   hotel   in   Munich,   where  he occupied  an expensive suite, and  posed as a Danish nobleman of great  wealth.    The  police  found  $7;500 in  his possession, in addition to jewelry  valued   at   $15,000.     It   is   estimated  ..savs the Berlin correspondent of the  "Express,"   that  his   annual, income  from burglaries averaged $75,000 during   the   past   ten    years.    Carllson  took   his   nrrest  philosophically,   and  threatens to write his memoirs while  in prison. '.  Oratory   In   Hay   Loft.  The Pope has decided a dispute between Right Rev. Dr. Brindle, Roman  Catholic Bishop of Nottingham, England, and Rev. Father Meenagh, a  priest in his diocese, in favor of the  priest.  Some time ago Alfred Wright, of  Swanswick Grange, near Alfreton,  opened a private oratory in a disused  hayloft, and allowed it to be used  for public celebration of mass.- Father  Meenagh protested, as it was injuring the attendance at his church, but  the bishop took no notice of his protest, and a few days after held a confirmation service in the hayloft ora-  The Pope has now decided that the  obligation to attend mass on Sunday  is not satisfied by attendance at a  private oratory���-.  Forest   Protection  Protection of forests' already existing is the first step in forestry. Fire  is by far the most serious enemy of  the forest; damages from insects and  fungi usually occupy an entirely secondary place. In the valley of the  Ottawa River,'it has often been said,  ten times as much timber has been  destroyed by fire as has been taken  out by the lumbermen.  In respect to the protection of her  forests from fire, .Canada has taken  the lead on the American continents.  ��� For 22 years past���i. e., since  1835���Ontario, has had a 6ystem of  protection of her forests; and the  Dominion administration and almost  all the provincial governments have  followed her lead.    -      ���*  All the Canadian systems" of fire  protection effect this object by means  of fire rangers who patrol an assigned district. When a fire is discover-  3d in its first stages, they put it out;  if the fire .is beyond their power to  control, they are given'power .to call  in���even to compel���help.  The fire protection system on Dominion -forest lands was inaugurated by-  Mr. E. Stewart, then Superintendent  ii Forestry, in 19m: At the beginning the number of men employed was  small, but by 1904 had risen to forty,  and now about fifty men are employed. This year, for the first time, rangers nre being employed along the  Athabasca and Lesser Slave Lake ;  there'nre three in. this region. The  greater number of the rangers are  -jmploved in the railway belt in' British Columbia and along the eastern  slope of the Rocky Mountains; in  these districts about half the total i  ���mmber of rangers are employed. ,  There are also rangers in the Edmonton district, the Prince Albert district, and .on the following reserves:  Moose Mountains. Riding Mountains,  Duck Mountains, Turtle Mountains  ->nd Sprucewoods.  The rangers are under the supervision of the Crown Timber Aeent.  forest Ranger, or some other official  designated for the purpose. Not only  -lo thev keep watch for fires, but  thev also post fire notices and generally trv to impress on the people-  the danger to the forests,-f��"*"n-'fires  nnd the need of care in setting fires;  'his educational feature is not the  least valuable part of their work. On  private timber limits half tlie expense  of fire ranging is borne by the limit  owners and half bv the Dominion  �����overninent; on lands not under li.-  <*ense the Dominion government pays  the whole expense.  The value of such a system of fire  protection is impossible to estimate  Tt is the "ounce of prevention" and  ���*>e putting out of a small fire ma'*  iienn the saving of many thousands  of dollars.  Testimony as to the .efficiency of  this system has, however, been given  bv manv lumbermen, both on provincial and Dominion lands.

Female��� Labor���Successful���I n_Soirth.  Africa���Prohibited   In   Britain.  Until recentlj women were employed in England in connection with surface work in coal mining and brick  works. The women were found to be  very strong, but they were otherwise  unsatisfactory and were ultimately  dispensed with at the collieries. The  coal mines regulation act of Great Britain prohibits woman labor being employed underground.  In German South West Africa an  Investigator .found many ' native women at work about the mines. Thej  weie useful in carrying in loads, es-;  pecially ol firewood. The women labor was cheap and as long as they  were left alone to tuke as much time  as they liked over the ' work and do  it as they wished they were all right.  His next experience was higher ut  the coast, in West Africi. Labor war  3hort and they decided to try women  to carry stones. They carried the  first two loads and th**y then struck.  Those women quite altered the conditions of carrying stones. They carried them for a certain distance, but  three or four relays had to be provided. After that thoy were tried at  carrying sand and tilings like that.  They went on for n short while, but  did the work in fits and starts. __  Jn another place, also on the West  Coast, where women had been tried  against the black men, it was found  that for carrying in firewood they were  by far the best and cheapest. There,  of course, thov were on piece work  although their tickets were marked  just the same as if they were on day  work. '    '  Their task was to carry in .a cord ol  wood a day. They used to start about  4.30 a. m. and went on carrying until  7, and from 7.30 till 0 or 10. Then il  thev wanted to get off early the next  day they used to carry another.cord oi  wood in the afternoon or a part of it.  They were a decided success, but  they were very particular as to-whether the cord of wood was exactly in  what thev called their circle. They  did not mind how close if was to the  boilers, but if it were a little over  their distance they would go to the  manager and want an increase directly . * . ' ���  Somo w-imen used to carry about  100 ponndi Dn thoir heads; on an average about 85 to 'J5 pounds of wood.  Statistics published in The Mining  World from time to time show that  there are a number of women employed in the coal mines of Belgium and  Germany, for instance, as pickers and  aortera  fits  perfectly  b ccause  each garment  is made to fit an  individual type of "  figure.  After it is finished and  goes to the laundry for  its final washing, each  garment is tested on  models  ranging from _a .  _to_50_inch bust measure-   ment. Thus the size is  determined accurately.-  And the size as marked  is exact, and stays so,  because Stanfield's Underwear can't shrink nor  stretch.
