The Toronto Globe, in discussing  "Mr. Foster's resurrection," says the  candidature of George E. Foster in  North Ontario is frankly admitted by  himself and his associates to have been  undertaken in the interest of the  Conservative p-irty. "This." it says,  'is tantamount to a confession that  the party in parliament cannot dispense with his general ability, his  parliamentary experience and his  aptitude for debate. It has apparently  taken the party managers a good  while to (ind this out; the public saw  it from the'flrst.  "It was. perhaps, inevitable that in  his address he should appeal to his  supporters to .have, a pure, gentlemanly  contest, but he had good sense and  good taste to refrain from any implication that Liberals are chief Binnerp in  the practice of political corruption. If  Mr. Foster will always keep on his  present high ground and induce others  on his own side to do so along, with  him, he may hope to accomplish  something in  the way of purification,"  Curling.   <���������  Tne following games in the different  competitions have been played this  week :���������.

Rapid  Running of Silk  Train.  The train bearing eastward over the  Canadian Pacific Railway the silk  caigo of the Empress of Japan is  muled as an "extra special," and is  being pushed along at a speed that  makes the regular express time appear  as but a snail's pace.  The train, which consisted of lour-  teen cars, left Vancouver Fnday  morning at 0 o'clock. It i em lied  Kamloops, 250 miles from heie, ten  hours and forty five minutes later.  The time of the i egular express for the  same i������n is eleveu hours and forty five  minutes.  Revelstoke was reached at twenty  five'minutes past midnight Sttmday,  and barring a short stop for inspection,  no time was lost in pushing .eastward,  as the train is under orders to make up  all the time possible in view of the fact  that tbe Empress of Japan was twenty  four hours late in reaching this poll  from Yokohama.  The silk special was rushed through  the mountains at better than expi ess  speed. She had the right of way  everywhere, and two hours ahead of  the time made by the express she sped  off the division early Saturday morning. The train occupied but twenty  seven hours in clearing the division,  which is two hours better than passen  ger train time. .-���������' A  The Chinese special, hearing a large  number of Chinese coolies consigned  to foreign point*, left here Friday at  12.30 p. m. ^j^he .alio is being rim at  better thati/passenger speed, and made  Kamlopps- in -ten- hours; ;and ttfleen  iniriutes afl'er leSvtngTtnTs- city.���������Pi o-  vince. ��������������������������� ''',"--     ���������������������������.'���������'���������'������������������  "  Salmon Arm Notes.

'     This is a moral as well as a physie.il  ���������world.    It  is governed  by moral laws.  iian is a moral being, and he is subject  to these laws.   This does not mean that  he is under the bondage or tyranny of  law.      There is a  disposition in    many  Quarters to regard  man  as   the victim  of seen  or unseen forces,  which  either  make or break him.    There  is  a false  teaching to-day which says  there  i3  a  predetermined  course    marked   out  for  each man by an arbitrary, partial power,  and   each   individual   must  follow  this  predestined course.  Then there is a philosophy of fate and  chance, and they who believe it look  upon the soul as in a lifelong game of  battledore and shuttlecock. Too many  persons regard their lives as marbles  flung out indiscriminately upon the bagatelle board of human existence. They  bump against obstacles, -wobble aound  life'* honors and go bounding and rolling toward gome unknown destiny. Pathetic indeed it it to see the persons  Hrho have yielded to such teaching. Many  ef them have ceased to struggle and  ceased to caer. Baffled, discomfited by  the strange and hard experiences thvouirh  which they hare, passed, they have lost,  or well-nigh lost, their' faith in human  volition and divine providence. It is  pitiful to see them swept along ]ike  driftwood on a river or hustled about  like dead leaves in an autumn wind,  victims of forces over which they, eca.-ic  to exert any control.  Much of modern fiction is saturated  *rith the thought that heredity and environment are the all powerful factors  in human destiny, . tint personality  counts for nothing, that every man U  the ghost of his dead ancestors, who  look through his eyes, speak in his words  and act in his deeds.  It is against this morbid and erron-  _ eous conception of life that we raise a  ^fQrd of protect and warning. .Heredity;  and environment' are not to be underrated. They are powerful factors. Nor  are they to he overestimated. But 1  maintain that in every man there is an  untainted power, something which passes  from generation to generation, untouched by change, and even though it may  be shut in by evil conditions and tied to  a thousand evil tendencies,.yet it may,  and it does frequently, assert itself aiid  fchow  its superiority.  ���������Man is morally free. Strip that statement of all theological sophistry and  metaphysical'subtlety; is it not true of  every man that. he has the power of  moral choice? If vou deny that, then  .... it;..- ...r.lis? to appeal to nionv.osrrYri'if  may as well close the avenues to academic honors and abolish courts of }us-  ticc and penitent iarie?'. We preachers  rr.ay as well close our churches a;u!  cc.-.se pleading wth the. consciences of  men. Deny man's capacity of moral  choice and you destiny man's personal  a.-.*finniaW:tr and destroy manhood  it-  Man is al*o under law. You admit  that of man's bodily nature, but there  ere ls-.rs moral as well as physical. Man's  ph viral freedom consists in an  odjiis'.:no!:t of his lioriy tr> thc=e physical liw. ?,������ man's moral freedom consists in the adi'.istuu-ut oi his spirit to  rmral lt'.vs. ];.>Mi physical and moral  laws f'nl their !������mvitaiing centre in  God. Tlftp laws are inexorable in their  operation. W'p talk about breaking tbe  laws of f!od, but that is careless speech.  .We break the laws of God? No. If wc  do not obey them they break U3. There  is no more escaping the consequences  ������������������cf-the���������violation. .L>t^the_m.oral_la\y_than_  there is coemption from a broken body  U you violate the laws of gravitation.  Ifan is under the law of heredity.  This means vastly more than the reproduction of the traits and characteristics  of bi= parents. It means that he is not  only heir to his environment, inheriting,  (or example, the lineaments of parents,  affected by birthplace, nursing, car'.y  training, and the like, but it means th.it  he is also inheriting himself in' himself.  ���������He is reproducing his own character, lie  is repeating himself in himself. K-ich  repetition ot an act is intenscr than  the preceding., Each bad act becomes  the sire of many bad act3, even as each  good act becomes the sire of many good  acts. In other words, he illustrates in  himself the la.w of the harvest. "Whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also  reap."  The harvest gathered is ever larger  than the seed sown, lie who sows sparingly reaps sparingly. He who sows  bountifully reaps bountifully. For example, a man bows the love of money.  JWhtit does lie reap? Dollars and cents?  Possibly; but one thing he docs reap���������  an intensifying love of money. As ths  growth is ever larger than toll germ, he  growB fonder and fonder of money; It  is not to be wondered at if he grows  covetous, becomes more and niore grasping and grinding. Xor need we wonder  If we sec him grow miserly, until the  habit of miserliness is ever becoming  more and more confirmed. What is true  Of covetousness and avarice, is also true.  of intemperance, indolence, scepticism  nnd the whole trai nof moral evils.  Each man is responsible  for  his own  character.     Each   man   has   the   liberty  ^of sowing what he pleases.   The harvest  that   he  rcarn  is   the  aggregate   of   his  r>iHi=:    t.h*������.   '���������'   I"    'hi-   -Vii-Vtor.  'Accordingly, then, it Isj for each man to  *aj", whether he will be good or ha 1,  \viiciht-r lit' u,.l i,\ t>tv t.ci Li-/ or wiu'sp.  Each man is rcspon--:ble for his destiny.

A profound  truth lies in the adage of Sallust, "Every  ���������.. man is the architect, of his own fortune," Daily rharactci is shaping yor.r  futui^,destiny.

"Sow and  ������'ct, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a  character; now a character, reap a dea-  fir;-."  No Call for Invisible Ink.  A writer.for The New York Sun rc-  scntly made a lour of leading retail and  wholesale ink dealers and manufacturers in that city and found that none of  :hem either made or had invinsiblc ink  in stock and all agreed that within tlieir  lime there had been no demand for it.  After  detailing  his   experiences   in   tlio  hunt, the writer gives several instances  in which invisible ink has played an important  part,  and   continues:���������"One   of  the most remarkable cases on record in  which invisible, ink played an important  part   occurred in England during Queen  Elizabeth's  reign   and   resulted   in    the  escape from  Loudon's Tower-of   Knllici-  Gerard,  a Jesuit priest under sentence  of death.    All the letters were  written  with orange juice, the relative value ot  which and of lemon juice for the same  purpose is carefully set down by Father  Gerard in one of his later letters. ".Now,  lemon juice," says the priest, "has this  property, that what is written in it can  be  read  in  water  quite  as  well  as  by  fire,  and  when  the  paper  is  dried   the  writing disappears again till it is steeped  afresh  or again held  to  the  fire.    Hut  anything  written  with   orange  juice  is  at once washed out by water, and cannot be read at all in that way; and if  held  to the fire, though the characters  are  thus made  to   appear   and  can   be  read,  they  will not  disappear,   so that  a letter of this sort once read can never  be delivered to any one as if it had not  been read.    The party will see at once  that it has been read and will certainly  refuse and disown it if it should contain  anything dangerous."   As neither lemons  nor oranges, pen nor ink were furnished  to  condemned  prisoners  in  the Tower,  Father Gerard obtained a supply of oranges  through  his jailer.    He   made   a  peri out of a quill.   Ont of orange peel  ho made crosses and rosaries.   Then he  begged for some paper in which to wrap  his crosses and rosaries.    He got it and  next bribed  his  unsuspecting jailor   to  carry a cross or a rosary as a small present to friends outside the prison, each  wrapped in paper covered with invisible  writing..   Ho   received   answers  to   his  (letters' in   the   same   way.     Thus   his  escape was arranged for and he got away  to safety.  Tho article continues:���������  An  irate  father  in London   one  day  intercepted and read with  the liveliest  satisfaction this letter:  Dearest Clorinde.���������By the time this  reaches you I shall he on route for, the  Continent to travel 1 know not where.

On  one occasion she remained fourteen hours  without intermission, and only consented to take rest when the doctors became  imperative in their orders to the nurses  that they must persuade the 'l-'rincess'  to leave her mother's bedside. . . .  There is no modern movement connected  with women which appeals so strongly  to the Queen as the development of the.  trained sick nurse; and should her-Majesty, following the King's example,  found nn Order of Merit for twelve notable women of the empire, we fancy that  Florence Nightingale would head the list.  Tho Queen has been a. gratified observer  during the last thirty years of the  gradual displacement, of the good-natured bub unskilled -'Sairey* for the trained  nurse; and t.o-dny it affords her great  pleasure, and satisfaction to be the representative head of the Koyal 1'ension  Fund for Nurses, nnd of the Queen's  Jubilee Nurses."  Is Dickens Played Out P  The best answer to the question, "la  Dickens played out ?" snys The London  Globe, is given by his original publishers,  Messrs. Chapman & Hull, who have been  looking into figures and taking a "box  oilicc" estimate ot the author. Jfor  many years their sales of Ills books have  averaged over tt quarter of a million  copies, and to these must be added the  innumerable issues, of the. majority that  arc' now' out of copyright. >So there  bctenia every justification for the new  biographical edition. As most people,  would guess, "David Copperfleld" comes  second in favor. First in fnvor, of course,  comes "I'ickwick," which is not the title.  of the hook.  It is a generally accepted belief that  on the elate th.it-wo call Christmas Cay  Christ was born. This is questioned  by some- chroniclers, but the doubt does  little hnrin, says, the Brooklyn Bugle.  Kvery ou'e is satislicd to take this date  as the nativity" of' Christ, anil it matters little whether it is historically correct or not; one day in the year, it is  believed by all good Christians, should  bo set aside for the celebration of the  birth of Jesus of Nazareth, and the  25tli of December is as good a day as  any on the calendar.        .  It Is necessary to go back to the  Roman era; to find the first recorded  reference to a festival on the date,  known to us as Christmas day, so that  It .need not be cause for surprise if  through all the past ages the record of.  the exact day on which Christ was  born should have become lost. History  tells us that the first feast to be celebrated on the 25th of December was  established by Commodus, emperor of  Home, who flourished about 185 yeara  after the birth of Christ.  After that there are many references  to the meetings of the new sect called  the Christians, who gathered on this  day to celebrate the birth of the God  Man. It Is not until a century after  the time of Commodus that we find a  particular reference to the persecution  that the ,Christinns underwent at the  hands of the pagan emperors having  culminated In a grand Christmas day  massacre.  Diocletian -w&s the Roman who decided to celebrate the date by killing  off a few" Christians. He did so with  a vengeance. The most horrible deed  perpetrated during tbe festival was on  Christmas day, when the assembled  Christians, gathered in their place of  meeting, were set upon and slaughtered, while the Romans looked on in  great glee at the sight of autipagan  people being put to death for their religion's sake.  When Rome was no longer a pagan  state, the feast began to be celebrated  In the Christian style, although, some  of the songs that were sung nnd some  of the rites of the festival would greatly shock the strictly orthodox churchgoer of the present day. At that time  there were no excursion trains to carry  those who wished to take part in a  public celebration from point to point,  nnd the electric telegraph had not been  thought of. Consequently those who  celebrated the birth of Christ in early  days did so in widely separated countries, sometimes at widely separated  periods of time nnd according to no  set programme. It was every community for itself, and-no one to criticise the others for not being careful  about the date.  As a matter of fact, the ancient celebration of Christ's nativity was left  entirely to tbe discretion of the different bodies, and as every community  bad divergent interests the time was  arranged to suit the exigencies of the  case. If Christmas day happened to  come upon a time when there was too  much work to be done to permit of a  holiday, thou It would'he postponed  until a more suitable season. Owing  to this, indifference to precedents the  exact date when the birth of Christ  ought to be kept was hopelessly lost.  On only one thing were all the ancients agreed���������namely, that the festival  In commemoration of the birth of  Christ ought to be tbe. most magnlfi-  cent-'of-tbe^yearv^lJiSame.cflsesJt^was^  =-*  Fop th* F������rm������P,  kept up for days and the meaning of  tbe festival was forgotten long before  the revelers returned to their homen  again.  It Is Interesting to observe that tbe  custom of giving presents at Christmas time, which has survived to tbi������  day, was begun In the first days of tbe  Christmas feast So was the custom  that Is known as carol singing. The  songs of today are based on tbe event  that makes Christmas day a time of  rejoicing, but -at-.that timo they were  not overparticular as to the subject  chosen by the singers. In fact It would  be difficult to find In gome of them-an  excuse for the singing of such ditties at  a religious festival.  It Is a striking feature of this Christmas celebration that from Its earliest  recorded history^ there Is no.sentiment j'  In connection with It but those of kind- j  liness   and    good   feeling.    However  much   the   old   style   of    celebrating j  Christmas  might be objectionable  to .  the twentieth century critic of orthodox |  tendencies who frowns at the frivolity j  of some of the customs, it was-alwnys j  a time for the better side of human j  nature to be'exhibited-'.and-for people |  to take gifts to encb other In a spirit of  peace and good will.   This kindly spirit  has been maintained until nil over the  world  today It is seen in the merrymaking, the happiness conveyed by the  glorious Institution of Santa Clans, the  steaming hot dinners presented to tho  poor, the frolic and the funninklng In  almost every home, and tho -gathering  together for tho yearly reunion of those  whom circumstances separate for the  greater part of the year.

Seed Testing and Its Relation to  Agriculture.  The testing.of seed for purity and  vitality by scientific methods has been  an important factor in the agricultural  progress of Germany, Switzerland and  other Suropean countries. Laboratory  methods for seed testing were devised  by Dr. Nobbe of Tharandt, Germany,  thirty years ago, since which time seed  testing stations have been established  in nearly all JSuropcan countries and the  United * States. Canada has now one  modern seed laboratory equipped with  the necessary apparatus for testing the  purity and vitality of seeds. The fact  that Germany alone now maintains  thirty-nine seed control stations shows  that seed testing is highly: valued as a  means - of safeguarding the interests of  agriculture in that country. The results of the work that has "already been  done in the Dominion Seed Laboratory  reveal a great need for active work in  6ccd testing as-well as persistent efforts  to prot'ect Canadian farmers and fields  from the "many evils that are connected  with -the Beed trade.  .���������'Early-'in the spring of the present  year, G. H. Clark, 13.S.A-, who is connected with Trof. Robertson's staff, and who  is now uncharge- of the seed laboiatqry  planned to make an investigation of the  trade in grass and clover seeds. With  the assistance of agricultural associations, institute workers and other interested persons, over five hundred one-  half samples of timothy, alsike and red  clover'seed'that was offered for sale by  local dealers were procured for the seed  laboratory. With each ���������=ample_was enclosed a statement showing the name of  the dealer, the place at which it n������3  offered for sale,, the price per found or  per bushel, and the origin of the seed.  In the seed laboratory these samples  were subjected to two examinations,  one fnr'the: purity and one for v'tality.  In making these examinations the  rules adopted by : the Association  of American Agricultural Colleges and  Experiment Stations .were followed in-  detail. ,  Evidence of wilful adulteration was  found in a few instances. One sample  of alsike obtained from Prince Edward  Island contained 26 pounds of seed. From  sand per hundred pounds of seed. From  ten to twenty per cent, by weight of  sand was frequently^found in-,>!iniplcs  of alsike and timothy seed. On the  whole, there has not been serious cause  for complaint because of low vitality.  It is the large quantities and noxious  nature of the weed seeds found in most  of the samples that render the evils  connected with the'* trade' in grass and  clover seeds of more than-ordinary importance to agriculture. The number of  weed seeds per pound of seeds as marketed ranged with timothy from 0 to 237,-  600; alsike from 90 to 180,450, and red  clover from 0 to 45,505. The approximate number of seeds in a pound of  itirrwtbv^eedsiis-1.350,OOQ,taJsike^7AO!Qprji  and red clover 300,000. The weed seed,  named in the order hi which they most  frequently occurred, consisted of foxtail,  Tibgrass, lamb's quarter, white cockle,  sheep sorrel, curled dock, false flax,  pepper grass, Mayweed, Canada thistle,  common plantain, lady's thumb, pigweed, black medick, ragweed, charlock  or -wild mustard and perennial sow  thistle. -���������'���������  Tho trade in red clover and alsike is  undoubtedly the most fruitful medium  for the dissemination of weed pests  The steadily increasing demand W the<c  seeds for both the home and the export  trade has encouraged their production on  farms that are foul with weeds Canada exports-anhnally large quantities of  alsike and red clover seed to European  countries, where a thorough, aysifin of  eeed control has become established  and where only the be���������t rccleaned  stocks can find a market. The screenings from these imported seeds are much  in demand on our home markets and  arc retailed by local dealers.  There are few agricultural mercantile articles the real value  of which is so difficult toi  judge from appearance as gr-iss,  clover and other small seeds. Competition is said to be the life of trade but  fair' competition in the seed trade is  possible only when the seed is sold according to fixed standards of quiltty, or  under a definite guarantee based upon a  standard method of analysis. The seed  trade in Canada has been passing from  the hands of rel able seed hou>t s into  the hands of incompetent and irrrnpon-  eible local dealers whose main .tin mew  is of nn cn'irr-ly different chiruti-r.  ���������'Xherfe-nre far too many jobber* dab-  1 ling in the serd business arid the. result is (hit cor-ipcHtion has been confined to pries alone.

As long its there is a demand for cheap seed, a worthless low  grndn nrlicle will be offered; nnd until  Canadian farmers have come to know  Hint the highest obtainable, quality of  si'i-il is always l.lm cheapest, the best  quality of our home grown seeds will  'l,i> exported to countries where the seed  trade is conducted on n more htt iriiiss-  like basis. F. W. Ilndson.  Live Slock Commissioner.  A Friend ot Thaokery.  Mr. Herman Charles Merivale, lawyer,  poet, author, journalist and playwright,  in a book of rcminiccnccs just issued,  tells a number of interesting stories  and anecdotes regarding the famous  men with whom at various times he wns  acquainted. Of Thackeray, his great  idol and close friend, he tells this:���������  Onco I wandered under Thackeray's  wing through the exhibition of 1802, a  tawdry, uninviting show of industry and  ugliness, I thought. Thackeray's mind  brought its own beauty to bear on it,  or I should remember nothing of the  hideous monster tit all. As we wandered down an unintei-csting street,of shops,  each shoppier-than its neighbor, but supposed to be remarkable for something  not in evidence, wc met a school'of little girls in grey, with very wide-open  eyes, indeed, improving their harmless  little minds under their mistress's guidance, in a quaint row of two-and-two.  Thackeray stopped when he saw the.,  little maidens, arid they stopped, too,"  randbobbed.  "How many littlr girls arc there?" he  asked the mistress. :   .  "Four-and-twenty, sir.".::  "Four-ahd-twenty ,-: little.  girls.   .They  must   have  four-and-twenty  little   sixpences to  buy-   four-and-twenty  Uittle*  things with." ' ' ���������      -  : -   . ,  And the procession was stayed till he  had got all tho change for himself and  himself deposited a bright sixpence in  every tiny hand. The eight-and-forty  eyes grew very large and bright, and  tlie chorus of "Thank you, sir," very  sweet and general. Then the procession passed and so did we.  Matthew Arnold's was, he says, tiro  most evenly cheerful disposition I have'  ever known, never in high spirits, as 1-  remember him, and never in low. Arnold was an amusing talker on the subject of the drama, caring admittedly  only for the classic. He looked upon  the cothurnus as the truscst analyst of  the perplexities and destinies of life,  and had small sympathy, which was odd  in him, with the laughing portraits of  the. Muse of Comedy, which liacl in thorn  to him something of the. nature of mere  caricature, at best. The plays of Aristophanes were in reality but satire in  burlesque, and even the comedies of  Woliete were to him but as weaker im-.  itations.  I saw hiin one day on the opposite  sido of the street, pacing along and  smiling to himself in the \ss\y I knew  eo well. Amused, I went across to him  and asked him what had ^happened.  "What is the funl" I asked. "Have  they been attacking you again in The  Saturday?" For to, break lances with  that periodical was an amusement to  both.

The strike of Lord Penrhyn'a quarry-  men,  Bcthcsda,  North  Wales,  has entered upon its third year, and according  to English papers is likely to continue  several months longer.  When tho strike  was  declared   2,800   men   in   his  Lordship's quarries went out.    Nearly one  thousand have given in  to'him;  about  000  remain   in   llelhcsda   and   vicinity,  and   are   partially,  support ed   by   tuulc  union subscriptions, nnd  the rest have  found worok In the coal fields and elsewhere, and'will-not  return under any  circumstances.    The London Daily Mail  says that there is extreme bitterness between the men who rstill hold out and  those who have given way, and this has  transformed Bethesda.    "Ordinarily the  district is absolutely -crimeless.    A sergeant and twq policemen suffice to regulate  its  conduct. "'Within   a   radius  of  two miles there are thirty chapels, and  not a single pawnbroker.    The keenest  pleasure    of    the    inhabitants    is    in  'preachings'  and prayer meetings.

" The strike arose because the men say they were fined for  trifling offences,  harried" by private detectives, and had to work by the month  without knowing,  even    approximately,  what  they  would' be paid.      They  demanded   that   these  grievances  be   adjusted  through  a  committee  to  be  recognized by Lord Penrhyn.  He, however,  is- an   old   and   ctauneli     foe  of   trad"  unionism,   ana   is  said  to  be  fully  determined  to  "smash"  the  Quarryinen's  Union in North Wales, and to force his  men   into   surrender.    "11   is  c   melancholy fact," says the paper quoted, "that  the quarrymen commenced this struggle  one- hundred" years ago.    It is exactly  a  century  since   the   men   mndc   tlieir  first' attempt  to  get  what most workmen now enjoy.   They have had a whole  scries- of  strikes  since   then,  nnd  have  achieved- success once     In 1874 the late  Lord  Penrhyn   conceded  the  men's  demand for combination, and till his death  all went smoothly."

The music did  J fjnot begin aga,n, and, having turned a  ��������� 'corner which she could only tiust was  ;!the right one, she found herself in a  i: dark and quiet street.  .        It was very long and straight, and at  ���������;    each junction with another road Wim-  ���������     fred  paused-and  peeied  through  her  thick,  improvised  veil,   hoping   to see  ��������� ��������� the name of Salt stieet.   If it .were not  V   -somewhere near" she was wrong in her  V"'    calculations,  and  -would   have. to. ask  the way of someone, or be hopelessly  i    lost.    She ,went on  thus,, s.lowly, l and  cduld see the name she looked for nowhere.    It was not late, but most of  tha houses In" this quiet street appeared  to  have  gone  to  sleep  for  the  night.  There was no sound, save the dulled  1   ., murmur of distant   traffic," so  that  a  '   ' rOotstep coming after her seemed un-  , naturally- loud.  It began by being just audible, far  away; then grew more distinct, till it  rang clearly along ^'the pavement.  What if, after all, she had been followed, Winifred thought. Somebody  might have watched her, waiting his  chance';' and now in this dark, silent  street-7-r_.,^.,...    . . ,  She could not follow the supposition  further without  turning to look over  her shoulder.   Against her'vvill she did  it, feeling as If some power other than  ��������������������������� her own forced her head round.  The dim light that shone through a  yellow window-blind in a house where  the inmates j were still up fell upon  something   bright,   and   struck   out   a  - gleam.   It was  the metal frame of a  banjo;   and  "Winifred   sighed   wlth're-'  lief.    Instead of being afraid she was  glad that the!man was near, for if she  '   must ask anyone to direct her she felt  , she would rather trust him not to betray her than a stranger.  Even, supposing he recognized her,  instinctively she felt that for the second time he would do what he could  to protect rather than injure her.  He came on rap'dly with a swinging  stride, as if he were in a hurry, and  ., passed  "Winifred  without   paying.- the  j   slightest attention to the _sl!m,woman's.  figure in its dark, inconspicuous clothing.

' "I haven't"'been abler.1'to'do very  much,", .said-the masked man. "You  know, her daughter's ia, then?"  "Mrs. Purdy told me."

"But I thought  perhaps I ought not to say 90."  "As you are Mrs. Purdy'a lodger, and  ��������� I shall" be In her, house for a lime,"  said Winifred, "we' aro sure to see,  1 each other's faces.

And, fitting ia latch-key  w>lo*i he had taken from his; pocket  ���������si* U10 key-hole of .a biiwUJ, battered  doer k> a mean Mttlo.'houee.liia row of  other mean houses exactly like U,' he  threw the door open  for Winifred  10  walk In.  Inside was a tiny passage, lit by a  common, unshaded paraffin lamp suspended fiom the wall by a bracket,  with a tin reflector as a background.  The floor was bare, save for a narrow  strip of carpeting meant to cover a  staircase, and on one side of trie passage were two doore.  "-Mlsa Purdy's In that room," said the  masked man, Indicating the door near  the front. "At the back here theie's a  sort of sitting-room and dining-room  and kitchen all In one. "Will you walk  in?���������and I'll light the lamp."  WInified did walk in, and in a moment, after some fumbling with  matches, darkness was turned into  light. The girl saw dimly through the  double folds of her fichu veil a small  loom, uncarpeted, and furnished only  w,th a red-covered table, a few chairs,  a kitchen range, plenty of, shelves for  bughtly-pollshed tins, and-'cheap blue  and white china. A queer old-fashioned  clock, with the picture of a pastoral  landscape on the door under its face,  ticked with supernatural energy on a  very nairow mantelp'ece above the  range. Hanging o-v er this was a vilely-  executed crayon enlargement of a photograph, representing a good-looking  young woman dressed as a "pantomime  boy."  There was hardly anything else in  the room save a colored mat woven of  -rags, which adorned the bare floor and  afforded a resting-place for a largo  black cat; but everything was spotlessly clean, and, despite its poverty,  the poor little room contrived to wear'  an air of homely comfort.  Winifred's heart warmed to her refuge. Somehow she suddenly discovered that she was not as unhappy as  she had been. She felt a sudden accession of courage and hope, though there  was little which-could reasonably account for either emotion.  The masked singer gave her a chair,  and she sat down, conscious that she  was faintly embarrassed in his presence. He had Tecognized her voice,  just as she had recognized his; they  knew each other.^and she, desired to  account to him.in some "commonplace  manner for her anomalous position; yet  she did not see how to do so without  revealing the'actual, .hateful truth.  The young man laid his' banjo on the  table beside hfs.hat' and began removing his mask. ' As he did -'so, with as  sudden Impulse "Winifred's hands went  up to the^knot which tied the piece of  chiffon.-at the back of her head.  Perhaps he had his secret as well as  she. But he was trusting her,, and she  would show that she meant to trust  him as well. Many wise people, knowing her "circumstances, would (have  thought her exceedingly imprudent to  do this. And doubtless she was imprudent. But she'dld not fear the consequences. And^ the veil and the mask  slipping down "at the same instant, the  man and the girl looked into each other's faces.  . The man's was pale, and his dark  eyes were bright, 'if "Winifred had possessed the slightest clue to his strong  feeling she might have wondeied at the  light in his eyes. His expression was  that which -a man might wear in  dreaming a wonderful dream from  which he feared to ibe awakened. But  Winifred was not in a mood for soibtle  comparisons,' and she only realized  more keenly than she had at their last  meeting that his face was fine and vtr-'  ile, and singularly attractive in a way  that she could feel without analyzing.  Sha wondered, nervously. If he would  ask any questions; but he did not, and  it seemed to her that lie. was making  an effort to pass the whole matter oft!  as df it were but a, mere commonplace  occurrence���������no thing "to 'excite surprise  at all.  "I must go to Miss Purdy's door and  knock softly, to find out whether "she's  sleeping still, or if she's woke up and  -waat3-anythlng,^_he_annpunced, "Af-  ter a fashion I'm acting nurse when  the poor girl's mother's away; but she's  so ���������well again now that she can be left  alone for a while, so I went out for an  hour. I'll be back In a minute, and  perhaps you'll let me get you something to eat or drink, if���������If you're  tired." 1      '.'   .1  As he spoke he had been gazing ^t her  with a wistfulness that would not he  concealed. Winifred ������nieased that sho  must be pallid and weary-looking after  all's'he had gone through, and fancied  ,that her white faco had suggested his  stammering offer.'  ���������> There was.something ourlouslr comforting and "helpful in his manner,  though he had mad* no offer of help ������r  hinted his suspicion that she might  need It. Whlls he was gone from tha  room Winifred listened attentively to'  the sound ot his,footsteps In the pas-,  sage, his low-toried conversation-with  ths sick-girl, and was glad when he  cam������ back again���������a warming, protected gladnsss &s of one who has found  safe haven after, storm.  "I always make myself a cup, of t������a  or 'cocoa-when-1 come in about this  time," he said, when he.had returned  to the kitchen sitting-room. "<Mrs.  Purdy Jbas given ine "permission, and I  feel myself very much at home, won't  you have torn* t*a? Or do you like  cocoa better at night?"  ,, "I should Ilk* tea very much, thank  'yoii," WinlfMd answered.  Sh* leant 'bask in'the cheap, old easy-  chair and watohed him. Thexo was  something wsndsrrully restful about it,  after all she had passed through.  Be seemed to understand by lnstlnot  that she was too weary and worn to  talk, and w������nt quietly about his work.  -Ia this little household the lumps of  eoal and auaeUm*- were luxuries, so ths  flr* bad net ba*n lightod. Hope New-  come boiled th* water over a spirit  lamp, and before the kettle-had begun  to sing* hV cut thin, tempting slices of  bread' and buttered them. He knew  where to an* everything, a'nd performed his self-appointed task with the  skill of on* who has oooked himself  many a meal at .times and in places-  when otherwise he would have had  none.  There  was a  glass  of milk for  the  sick girl in the next room, and when it  had  been  carried  to her  the  tea hac":  stood long enough to be good.   A pleas  ant fragrance  filled    the    little  room  Feeling like one in a dream, Wlnlfrec  ate bread and butter and sipped strong  tea.   It was a very strange thing, but  nothing on earth had ever tasted sc  good.- !  "What nice tea you make!" she said  "Do I? Tm glad," he answered,    "j  used to make It for my mother."  "And my mother used to make it foi  me!" the girl exclaimed. Then suddenl;-  It struck her that it was curious the;  two should have been', thrown togeth  er again, and be talking most familiar  ly In a calm, everyday way, Ignorin  all that made each one's he Jit sad r  anxious, and knowing absolutely noth  ing of one another's lives.  Yet, now that she thought of It, die  this  man  know  nothing  of  her  life  She had told him nothing.   But he hac  been  at  the  Duke of  Clarence's  thai  night, and now he was here in Brlgh  ton.    He might have had some super  flclal knowledge of her as an actress in  the   beginning,   and    possibly   he   hac.  asked   questions.    At   least,   he   coulc  hardly be ignorant of her name afte  what he had done in her service out  side tha stago-door of the London the  ater; and if he remembered it, he musi  know that Winifred Gray was billed tc  act in "Mazeppa" to-night and after.  The blood .lushed up to her face a-  this conviction seized her. What h,.  had not alfeady learnt Mrs. Purdy  would probably tell him. Somehow the  girl could hardly bear that he should  know all the truth. It would be horrible to feel that she was associated in  his mind with a man of Lionel 11a-  jCaire's reputation.  Of course there was no reason why  she should caro what this poverty-  stricken young minstrel," who masked  himself and played his banjo, in the  public- streets, thought, of her, even  though, whatever his outward circumstances, he was certainly by birth and  breeding a gentleman. Still, Winifred  did. care,- disproportionately,  cruelly.  She was seized with a vivid desire to  discover how much he already knew.  All the brief, sweet restfulness had  vanished with those thoughts.     '    ,  ,  "Do you know my name?" she asked,  abruptly.  "Yes," he answered without hesitation. "I hope you don't mind my remembering it so well. You are Miss  Winifred Gray. I couldn't help enquiring at the theater that night; and the  doorkeeper told me. As for me���������not  that you'd be Interested, still, I'd like  to tell'you���������I call myself Hope New-  come. It's not my real name; I merely  chose It because it meant something  to me, for a sort of mission that  brought me to England, and I shall  drop it when that mission's done. But  I haven't told anybody else this."  - "Thank you for trusting me," said  Winifred, guessing that he had told hei  just to show his trust, and co let her  see.that she���������was not the only one who  had eecr*ts to steep. ^"I-can't feel that  we're strangersafter'what you did for  me that other night. I've never foi-  gott������nr But there are other things 1  want to ask you. -Did you know that I  was to have acted In Brighton? Of  course, though, you must have seen the  bills."  As she spoke her eyes fell and he:  color rose, for she seemed to see one  terrible poster with a crowd about II  Perhaps he had been one of that crowd,  or asother like it.  "I know, yes," said Hope Newcome  and flushed a little, for it was because  he had known that he had come to  Brighton. But he would not tell her  that.    -  He could not tell her how he had  been tempted that night when he had  flrs't seen her (and the whole woild  had seemed the brighter and sweeter  for his knowledge of her) to follow and  find out where she lived, merely {hat  he might sometimes pass the house and  look up at the windows.  He could not tell her of his astonishment and pain when he had read in a  paper that Miss Winifred Gray had  suddenly seversd her connection .with  the Duke of Clarence's Theater. He  had meant somehow to get the money  for a seat on the flrst night of "As You  Like It" to see her as Celia, but. the  Duke of Clarence's lost Its attraction  for him when he knew that she was  gone.  CHAPTER XXTV.   Pa  aer3._  Ha could not tell her that, nor how  often he had thought of her, v.'ondei-  lng whether she were still In London,  whether she were ill or well; whether  she wore "resting" or rehearsing for  seme new play of which he had mlssetl  the announcement.  (,IIe oould hardly have looked her in  tha fa.ee to-nifht if shn renin ii'v*  iHSBft-.C h^��������� '"^-ti he had read that  sh������ was in Brighton, he had hastily  answered an advertisement In a dramatic paper requiring a banjo-playei  a/nd singer of Amerloan "plantation"  melodies lor a negro minstrel party to  open at an early,,date at a cheap music-  hall in that seaside .town. He could  play'the banjo well, and a very good  one which he had had "since his college  days-was still, in his possession;' that  is, grim necessity had not -yet obliged  him to pawn rt. "'  He had got tha engagement," as the  manager was In a hurry, and ready to  take almost anybody. - And he had  boen delighted with tbe chanoe, though  he would have to black his face with  burnt oork every night, associate with  cads and bounders, and receive in exchange for his services the sum of one  pound a week.  As a matter of fact, the pound was  forthcoming for one week, and no  more. - Business was bad, and' the  manager disappeared Before treasury  day of th* second week, leaving the  flva members of the troupe to do as  bast they could.  What Hope Newcome did was to stay  and help his landlady take care of her  sick daughter. When his funds failed  h* put on a mask, which Mrs. Purdy  made at his request, and went out into  the street or down by the sea with his  banjo, earning not only money enough  to say his way, but to provide some  littU dollcaales for the Invalid, which  otherwise she would have to do without.  Unassisted, b* would perhaps not  hav* thought of this method of refilling his empty pockets, but when the  "ghost" ooaiwd to "walk" for tho "Six  Jolly Niggers," Clara'Purdy had suggested  the 14������a.

Having no engagement for thfc^vear,. slit  had been in the habit of gorng-'out  masked, to sing popular music-hal  airs', with a sweet," untrained voice,  and fhe had thought that Hope New-  come, might Utilise his rich tenor ami  his banjo.'  So he had taken her advice, and haO  been In Brighton three weeks. Bu'  there was' very little, of this which  could be explained or even mentioned  to "Winifred Gray.. And if he could; lei'  her nothing about himself, still ^ess  could he -ask her questions. He musi  bo. content, for. the present with the  crumbs that she cared to throw to him  And how content he was! As if ii  mattered what wind had buffeted hei  within his reach, if he weie not hurt  by Its roughness, since here she wa1-  beside him!  "Yes, I knew you were here," he ha������  said, simply. And the answer seeme..  bald and cold enough compared .witl  the whole reality which he had in hi  thoughts. "I knew it some weeks ago  You were here before I was."  He had not referred to her queatior  about the posters.   But perhaps he h-a>  only forgotten to speak of them.   Fei  haps  he  had  not  seen  those  >>orrlbi  new ones of   which   that girl   Jt   th<.  theater had told her.  "Did Mrs. Purdy speak of me?" sh<  asked.  "No. Not to me. Since she went r.o  the dress rehearsal she hasn't sppkei.  of anyone in pat ticular at the tbcatei  and, of course, as there's been nothing  going on there except rehearsals, she  wasn't at the place till then, since yot  came to Brighton."  Newcome might have added that hr  had taken the room in Mis. Purdy's  iiouse because someone at" the music-  hall had told him she acted as a,dres&-  sr at the theater; and that he had tried  to extract fiom her some information  concerning Miss Gray after the dres--  rehearsal of Mazeppa, but had no',  gone about it tactfully enough to ge!  the satisfaction he wanted. But he  kept this part untold.  "You must be wondering very much  why I am here, instead of playing m>  part on the first night," WiniEied said,  hesitatingly, not sure yet how far she  meant to go In. explanation.  "I'm not thinking about that," New-  come answered. "I am only thinking  that I should like to help make you  comfortable now you are heie."  "I simply couldn't play the part as  they wanted it done," the girl faltered  on. "'They deceived me up to the very  last, on purpose, of couise, -beuauie  they must have known I wouldn't do  it if I had been told Jn ,tlme. They  hoped that at the last moment they  could force me to take their way. Bui  I would not. Still, if it hadn't been for  Mrs. Purdy they might have succeeded. She helped me to gat away, and  nofbody at the theater guessed. , When  they found out that I was gone���������as  they must have long ago pow���������I don't  know .what they could have done.

But I can't care much, because it was like a plot, and I had to  3ave myself, sinoe they were" determined that I should wear���������that I should  play the part exactly in their way. I  don't want them to know where I am  'It's to be quite a secret, if It can. be  kept so.   And, oh, I hope It can!"  "It shall be," said Hope Newcome.  His firm tone gave the girl courage,  and she felt a thrill of gratitude.  They were still talking together when  Mrs. Purdy cams home with the news  of the theater and all that had happened after Winifred's disappearance.  "Winifred flew down the passage to ;  meet the old woman when her latchkey was heard scraping in the lock.  She wanted time for one whispered  caution before her hostess should come  into the sittlng-room.-  "Itf you guess the name of the man I  most want to escape from," she said,  hurriedly,.in Mrs. Purdy's ear, "please  don't mention it to anyone, not even  your daughter or your lodger, will you?  I can't bear to think that people should  know In what a horrible way I have  been persecuted."  , "If I've a thought In my mind about  that, there it stays locked up," rejoined the old woman. . "The name I  was thlnkln' of isn't known to'the public as the manager of the play, and  there's--no reason ��������� why anyone here,  anyhow, who ain't in theatrical secrets  should put it alongside o' yours."  "That is what I hope," the girl exclaimed: "And now I'm so anxious to  hear all you have to say.

For many  seasons the bar'has been a favoiite  resting place for flocks of wild geese on  their long flights to the far north.   Ke-  ^/MEDICINAL QUALITIES.

The first flock  of geese that alighted eagerly gobbled  "lip the~conrand eoon-bee-ame decidedly-  intoxicated. Some ot them rolled over  and went to sleep"; others squawked absurdly and staggered about tho bar,  and still others tried to fly, but only  plunged around in tbe air awhile and  again alighted on the strip of lhe band.  The farmer, who had been in hiding,  watchin'g the effect of the scheme,  ruehed to the sand bar and captured  nearly the entire flock. He now has  plenty of geese.���������Exchange.

When a hen steals her nest and is  allowed to sit, the result is usually a  large hatch. When hens have been fed  carefully and have produced eggs for  a long time, it is folly to expect good,  results from setting such eggs. Nature  causes the female to become "broody"  (when her nest Is full of eggs; therefore,  the first twelve or twenty eggs laid are  strongly fertile, and will produce healthy .chicks. The result is less satisfactory as tbe number of eggs increases.  I' have experienced this, and do not  breed from my layers.  The best results are obtained by matins two or three-year-old females with,  yearling birds, keeping such fowls bach  until you wish to mate. "Breeding fowls  can be allowed to run at large or mated  .with one male; partial confinement  with more than one male -will lead t*  trouble and lack' of fertility.  -  Do not blame your Incubator or ths  place where you set your hens; tho  trouble can be further off.

His latest manifesto enjoins Canadians to prepare to  meet a further increase, in the public  expenditure, amounting to millions.  This is quite in keeping with Mr.  Pi-efontaine's municipal record at  Montreal, and shows that our newest  Cabinet Minister has not fergotten  anything or learned anything by his  ignominious rejection from the mayoralty of his native city. He is evidently  paving the way for a regular "wait  until you see us next year" scattering  of the people's money, and ths coining  - budget promises to be a record  cbreaker.  On tbe tariff question, Mr. Prefontaine is very reticent and has lost some  of his^protectionist enthusiasm. Can  it be that the Free Trade section of  the party are treating the Hon. Raymond to some of Mr. Tarte's medicine?  Or is it part of the Liberal's double  dealing fiscal policy ?  A Busy Session Coming.  Parliament is booked to meet early  in March. The coming session will he  one of the most important since confederation, and will probably last for  six months or over. Among the important questions .to be ^considered are:  The tariff,|the fast Atlantic service,  the redistribution bill, the report of  the Colon-'al Conference delegates, tha  Railway's Commission bill, the Telephone hill, the Cattle Guards bill, the  Grand Trunk Pacific bill,; granting of  railway subsidies for the years 1001-2  _and,19JB^, andjhe^proposal t������ further  lextsnd the ntercolonia). From this  partial synopsis it can be seen that  Canada's legislators have abtisy session  before them.  Marvel of Mechanism.  One of the largest printing presses  in the world, and undoubtedly lhe  largest in Canada, is shortly to be  installed in the premises of Ths Mail  and Empire, Toronto.  This monster is known as th* Scott  Straight Line Sextuple Insetting nnd  Folding Machine. > Its enormous capacity of 72,000 papers per hour, printed,  pasted, cut and folded, will enable The  Mail and Empire to publish news an  hour and a half later than at present.  .'This mammoth| press is one of the  most up to date aud complete machines  ever manufactured. An idea of its  prodigious size may be gathered from  the fact that it is 20 feet in length by  13 feet 10 inches in width and weighs  ������2vtons! It will print 8, 10. 12, 14. 16,  20 and 24 pages, as required. It really  consists of three presses, double width,  or fa>ur pages wide, placed one above  the other in parallel planes.  Each press carries sixteen stereotype  plates, and is fed from a roll of paper  70 inches in width. The webs are  brought together in register after  being printed, and receive a longitudinal cut in the centre, making six  continuous webs or sheets, the present  width of the paper. The several  sheets receive a fold in the centre,  while on the run, and are cut oil in  lengths of one page, after which they  are again folded  to  half or  quarter |  any given  number. This machine has lieei  constructed with great care, utid it  capable of turning out a very supsrioi  class nf work, special attention bavins;  been given to a perfect ink distribution.  The printing cylinders are in horizontal, parallel planes, and tbe rolls o<  paper are all atone end of themaihint,  while the finished product is deliverer  at the other.  The tensions are controlled by oin  lever and separately, and an inde>  provided for the purpose, showsexacth  the strain on each web of paper.  There are two ink distributing eylin  ders, with tbair several compositioi  rollers to eachjplata cylinder, and thi  ink supply'is controlled by pawl am  ratchet mechanisms/  In order to produce papers of an)  combined number of'pages, either se<  of printing cylinden can be run without tbe others, and the folders wit!  each.  The driving (gear, which is designed  for electric power, is mounted on a sub  bed-plate below the floor level, and h  securely fastened to ths base of the  machine. A slow motion with power h  also provided to facilitate tbe threading of the webs and getting the machine in running order.  REDISTRIBUTION  IN NEXT HOUSE  Measure Proposed to be Introduced by the Government in  the Commons.  Ottawa, Jan. 3,���������The Minister of  Justice has prepared a memorandum  in reference to tbe ^coming redistribution of seats iu the House of Commons  based upen the census of 1000. As a  result of this, Ontario will lose .six  members; Nova Scotia, two; New  Brunswick, one; Prince Edward, one;  and the Territories, two; while Manitoba gains three and British Columbia  one.

The Train Despatcher.
The frightful accident at Wanslead,
Ont.. has drawn attention to the tiiiin
despiltchtir uivl his duties. When the
ordinary piiMriMigi'i- fcils iu a well
cushioned se.u in it cur. and peacefully
raadH tho Intent novel whili*lhv train
swiftly travels down ' tho grades,
through the cms and aroitnd sharp
curves at the rate of 45 miles an hour,
hif> thoughts seldom ever turn to the
faithful servants upon whose shoulders
rest the responsibility of briii^inn him
safely to the loved ones at homes.
Here and there, perhaps at the dead
hour  of  night,   his  train  conies to a
standstill at a station,'where there is
no representative other than, the ever
wakeful   Wielder of  the ticker.   One
minute passes, sometimes two or three,
and the passenger moves restlessly in
his  seat; another   minute   pusses, he
jumps,   walks  excitedly    about,   and
then   in   a    domineering   tone   asks:
"Why   are   we delayed in this nut of
the way place?"    From the, conductor
he receives   the infui-malioii: - "Wait
ing  for  orders."     To:   the    comfort
loving   passenger it is   unsatifactory,
and   he  seems  quite oblivious of the
danger to which he would be exposed
-Vers  his  train  . to  dash   madly   on
"without  a  signal  from   the-.'watch/
tower"���the dispatcher's office, where
every minute is carefully counted and
���very utile as carefully calculated upon.
He  never 'thinks of   the telegrapher
.who controls the signal tower; that it
is from him the engineer receives his
cue; that from his cool and level head,
as he sits   by   his   table, emanate  the
~ signals which bring   the   train out of
the   way   of  collisions  and   dangeis.
He  forgets that, as  the engine driver
peers through the dark clouds of night,
bis eye is'ever watchful for'"white' or
"red", signals   from   the   tower.     He
forgets  that   as   he  speeds along, the
v.orations  of  the  electric^ wires are
ever and anon sent fi om thie despatch-
er's desk to every station  on the linij
* to  protect  him  from   being hurried
headlong into eternity. ���;'
Danger is on all sides, and yet the
thoughts of the traveller are far from
the railway despatcher who controls
the signals truly by which every
.danger is averted. -
We stroll every day into the despatch-
-er'sor the station master's office and
~.sse the telognipher sitting at his desk
��� bold ing the -key lightly, between his
fingers, and we bear the click, click,
dots and dHshes and we' give not a
moment's thought to what it'..' all
means. There sits the operator with
a chess board before his'mind's eye,
and on it representing men and kings
are biiperior and inferior trains, running sast and west.- north and south,
freighted heavily with priceless humanity. He directs. their movement,
he calculo tea theirspeed, and[bringing
them to the same point, he gives "theiu
���harp connection. He is always on .
the alert and in his hands are th��
destinies of a thousand souls. Let
them err to the extent of a single
moment, let them forget a single
station on the line and maybe a hun
dred people may meet' death in a
deadly railway collision, so remember:
Your safety, then, not all depends,
On the man who rings the bell;
Divide your praises with telegraphers,
To them some praises tell.
Back at the Old Home.t
tells a story of having; gone back-
after many years' absence, to hlf
ota country homo In the New En pi ami
States. On the ruined doorstep of tho
old house stood the seedy remnant o'
a once noble race. He wore, amongst
other things, one suspender and a seed;,
pair of trousers. The conversation ran
like this:
"Glad to see ye," sez he. "Thanks,"
says I. "We've heeid about you," shy.
he, "and they say you done noble.''
"Well, nnd how are you?" says I.
"Porely," sez h��. "How's that?" says
I. "Jest makrln' a bare Hvln\"'sea he.
"Why don't you go away?" says t.
"Can't," sez he. "Why not?" says I.
"Mortgaged," sez he. "That's too bad,"
says I. ;"Tts," sez he. "Tou don'l
seem to have muci to live for," says 1.
"Don't want, to live;", sez he. ."Tou
might die." says I. "Can't'," sez he.
"Why not?" says I. "Mortgaged," sez
At this point they were joined by
another old acquaintance of Mr^Bach-
eller's���a man who for yearSj had held
a mortgage on every acre of the country-side. "Bo you're Paul Bacheller's
boy?" he said, after scrutinizing the
visitor closely. ��� "The same," said Mr.
Bacheller. "Well." said Mr. Wallace,
reflectively, "If your father had kept
you on the farm It would not have
looked as it docs now." TJp to this
point the unfortunate farmer who was
mortgaged had tn ken no part In the
conversation. Now, however, a Strang
grin came across his face.
"That's right, Mr. Wallace," Bea he.
"If he had been kept on the farm the
farm would hev looked batter, but he'd
hev looked a damn sltfht worse."

It is probably a low estimate when  one says nine bo.> s out of ten make up  their minds at ss.v'8 Lime during their  careers to r:::\~ away from home.  There ar-.? various causes that contribute to the.forming of such resolutions, but whatever the cause, the boy  is always firm in the belief that he is  not being used Hsjht, and that the only  way to better his condition is to gather  up such personal property as he can  -conveniently carry and get out into  lhe world, where he can make a name  for himself by killing Indians, or, pirates, or by becoming a great detective. \  Sometimes the hoy resolves to become a pirate, or highwayman, and it  is  not  always the most vicious  who  form   such  a  determination.    To   the  ���������mind of the average boy there seems a  ���������-great deal of romance in such a career.  For  many weeks Rob Norton  had  'Jleen  planning to leave  the  paternal  ������������������roof-tree, and it must be confessed the  -Testing of a most Improbable and Impossible pirate yarn had brought about  this reckless determination.  Rob had mace up his mind to be-  -come a pirate!  -Many a night he dreamed of treading  She quarter deck and roaring out his  arders to his gallant crew. Many a rich  jrke had he captured���������in his mind.  He had fancied himself performing all  manner of desperate and daring deeds,  ��������� and  had  even   decided  he  would  be  Scnown as "Red Eob, the Rover of the  tDeep."   He thrilled ail over whenever  lie contemplated the magnificence of  ���������the title.  Working on a farm was "dead slow"  -^if ~inm"aj^'^e^liowe=di'tb"qi:6te"' Rob's"  owe definition of it.   Hoeing potatoes  and  chasing cows his mind  revolted  against.  Ey shrewd dickering he had been  ���������able to get hold of a cheap revolver,  And this he concealed under the eaves  in the open chamber, where likewise  nestled the pirate yarn that had so fas-  ..crnated and bewitched him.  If Roh's father had known he possessed the revolver there would have  "been trouble, and the weapon would  Jiave been confiscated.  Il wos some lime after he obtained  possession of tha revolver before Rob  jreally settled on the time of his departure. For two or three days he had  Shirked about his work, and the result  ���������was he got a good "dressing down,"  and was told, he would get another It  Ae did not complete a certain amount  ������T work the following day.  *TU never do it aa long aa I llvei"  ^declared Rob.  .'But he took good care not to utter  &ke "words aloud.  '���������'That night, when all the house wan  oauil. he gathered up a few things and  4U������a them in a small bundle, and the  '<t*nolTer and the wild pirate yarn were  Sfcroaght from their place of coneeal-  eiMBt.    "  ���������vT.4. -window of his chamber opened out  -30b the s'.cplc? root of a  shed,  and,  -Raiding his sbecs in hii hand, the boy  ^Brepl eilectly forth.  "The night was dark, as the moon  4U not yet risen, gut Rob knew every  "inch of the vicinity. He crept to the  ���������*jwer edge of '.hp roof and slid down  "S beard he had !eoued in a slanting po-  <*ttlon for that purpose.  "I'll never come back here again."  :%������ muttered.  Somehow, the thought dfrt not make  -*lm feel as hilariously happy as it  ^night He remembered he was running away from hit mother, and a hard  lump formed! i,n his throat,  Quickly choked' if down.'  It was beneath the dignity of a i'l-  rato to feel any regret.  He slipped over the fence into the  cornfield; whero ho hesitated for a moment.  A light breeze was stirring, and all  about him tho long leaves seemed  whispering, mysteriously.  Tho sound made him shiver, nnd lie  nlmost wished that ho was back In his  comfortable bed.  After a little time ho put on his  shoes and started down between tho  long rows of corn. The shadows were  deep about him, hut ho saw a sheen of  silvery light appearing on the eastern  horizon, and he knew tho moon would  be up within half an hour.  He had almost reached tho limit of  the cornfield when, of a sudden, his  heart gave a great thump, for a dark  form seemed to rise before him only a  few steps away.  It was a human figure, there was no  doubt about that, and Rob found himself motionless with���������was It fright?  Could it bo the bold Rover ot the Deep  was seared?  ITe did not make a. sound as he sunk  to the ground, keeping his eyes on that  ���������fall figure looming up before him. Ho  remembered heaving I1I3 father reading  in the weekly newspaper about a def-  pp'rnte wretch Who had nearly murdered ,,a man in a neighboring town,  and it' was said the perpetrator of tho  deed was still at large.  Had Hob suddenly uomo upon this  desperado?  He began to tremble, for he really  felt cold, despite the fact that the night  was warm and pleasant. Ho hugged  the ground, and longed to see the unknown move away.  But the stranger stood perfectly still,  seeming to be listening with great ih-  tentness. Rob wondered if the man  had seen him, and decided he had not.  The minutes dragged slowly away.  The boy on the ground could hear his  heart thumping vigorously in his bosom. Still the dark figure remained motionless.  Rob thought of creeping away, but  ho believed the man was waiting fo;'  him to make such a move.  I  Then he remembered his revolver.  It wasn't loaded!  '  The weapon was utterly useless as a.'  means of defense, for he did not even"  have any cartridges to load it with!  By this time Hob felt really alarmed.  His teeth would chatter so he feared  they would betray him.  He would have given the revolver1  and the pirate story, too, if he had  been safely back in the house.  By looking iutcr.ily at tho man he  could see his bristling beard sticking'  out around bis face, and the way tha  fellow wore his hat was enough to indicate he was a ruffian of the deepest  dye.  Suddenly Bob remembered the moon  would soon be up, and the' thought  filled, him with terror, for he now understood what the wretch was waiting  tor. '���������.���������'...'  The moonlight would reveal the hiding boy.  Nerved by his great fear, Rob crept  cautiously away, expectiug lo be attacked at any moment. Inch by inch  and foot by foot he crawled away. It  Eeemed that he moved with the slowness of a snail, but he knew lhe nedl  of caution.  He crept every bit of the way back  to the fence, and, instead of climbing  over, he found a way.to get through.  He had changed his mind about running away that night. In fact, he had  postponed becoming a rcmorsolcss and  red-handed pirate.  He was relieved beyond measure  when he reached the shed, and he  shinned up the slanting board with  ogility. In at the window he softly  climbed, closing it behind him, and he  did not feel really and truly safe until  he was in bed with the clothes pulled  up over his head.  The following day Bob went out into the cornfield to see if he could end  the tracks of the man he had seen.

WHO IS SANTA CLAUS?  rrndtticm   Aj>������wer*   WltU   a   Pretty  Story.  It is frequently asked, "Who Is Santa  Claus?"   Here is ti story about him that  lets light upon  his real character.     He  was bishop of Myrn and died about tha  year 320.     Among  his  parishioners  (so  runs one story) there lived a certain nobleman who had three daughters.    From  being rich he became so poor that thera  eeemed  to   him  no  means  of  obtaining  food for his daughters but by sacrificing-  them to a dishonorable life.    Over and  over  again  the  thought  came   into   his  mind to^ell them so, but shame and sorrow   held   him   dumb.     Meanwhile   tho  maidens  wept continually,  not  knowing  what to do and having no bread to eat,  and their father became more and mors  desperate.    When St.  Nicholas heard of  this, he thought it a shame that such u,  thine should happen in a Christian land.  Therefore one night  when  the  maidens  were asleep  and   their  father  alone sat  .watching and weeping he took, a handful  of gold and tyiug it up in a handkerchief  repaired to the nobleman's dwelling.    He  considered how be might bestow it without making himself known, and while ho  stood  irresolute  the moon coming  from i  behinda cloud showed him an open win- I  dow.  i '    POINTED PARAGRAPHS--^  Weeping willows should he paintetJ  tn tiers.

Tho richjllght of a  middle May evening pcryaded tho  placo. ' j?  Her fingers wer softly bringing back  memories of "Ermlnle" and other Casino delights as her thoughts travehiJ  back over tho past.  After a time she arose from ine  piano and picking up a number of photographs of John Desmond's friends  that lay upon the tabic, seated herself  upon a sofa with her back to the door  and proceeded to contemplate each of  them.  > Desmond returning home early t.-.at  evening let himself Into his aunt's  house vcrjf quietly with his latchkey,  hoping to catch Kate at'the piano in  the middle of one of the sweet airs be  had grown of late to love.  .: Ho approached lhe great drawing  room doors and took a peep through  the crevlco which separated them. In  an instant his heart seemed to ceast  beating with almost electrical suddenness, for the sight which ;'.!s maddened  brain encountered rilled him with rago  and Jealousy.  With a heart of ice and lead he ,wa9_  about to turn- to leave tho house as  noiselessly as he had entered when the  sTnkins sun shot a ray. of light through  the room and revealed something  which made the blood " course faster  through his body than It had ever  coursed before. Then he turned away,  and, closing the door very softly behind him, descended the front' steps of  the house and passed down the street/.  Mrs. Salisbury and Miss Evanston  were at'their dessert that evening before John appeared. He had left word  in the morning that he might be detained until a late hour, and so they  had not waited dinner for him.  Mrs. Salisbury noticed that her nephew seemed to he laboring under considerable restraint and bluntly asked  him the cause; hut the good body's solicitude met only with evasion and she  presently gave up all attempts to draw  anything from him and retired early  to her room, leaving John and Kate together.  No sooner had Mrs. Saulsbury quitted the dining room! than Desmond  turned to Kate and said:  "Miss Evanston, I'm going to ask you  to "do me a favor."  ���������Kate- looked "at him-inquisitively. ������������������  "I want you," he continued, ''to accompany mo on a hit of a -shopping  tour, I've got a' peculiar mission to  execute and I want your help. Will  you do it?"  "To.be...sure.' I shall be most happy,  Mr. Desmond," Kate answered, "and  ifyou'U excuse me I'll be prepared in  a. very few minutes."  The streets were dark by the time  they left the house, for tho shopping  quarter of the town", and Kate took  Desmond's arm. They had walked for  a few moments In silence whon Desmond'said:  "I want to explain this errand to you  and no doubt you, too, will think it  peculiar. As a matter of fact, I'vo been  commissioned to arrange for the wedding of two very dear friends." '  "Two couples," Kate asked,, quietly.  "Why, no! only one couple; a man  and a woman," John answered,'somewhat puzzled at the question.  "And was Bhe a very.deaf friend?'*  the girl on his Jirm asked.  "Yes;, the dearest friend 1 ever had  among women; In fact, the only wo-  ���������aan I evei i-eally cared for."  In a moment John was half sorry,  half glad he had said this, for he felt  tae little hand of his companion withdraw uatll enly the tips of the Augers  rested upon hl������ arm. "That's a good  ���������Ign," he mused.  For a moment mothlng   was   said;  t*en Miss Evanston broke tho silence.  "And didn't she care for you?" she  asked..  "Yea," he replied. "She loved me  and she still loves me."  Presently Kate's curiosity got the  better of her Judgment and she asked:  "And the mas���������-you say he's a dear  friend, too?"  "Yes," replied Desmond, "the only  tne I ever trusted absolutely."  o-.i~.ATm aoes ne know mat you ioT������  tier ant", that she loves you?"  "'"He knows absolutely that I love her  and he Is mighty certain that sho loves  nie."  Kato was now thoroughly mystified,  "And which of thom asked you to ar-  ran go for the wedding?" sho asked.    ,  "Ho did," replied John curtly. ,  Kato could only suy: "Well, this  mission, as you term it, certainly Jj  Inexpllcublo." ''..������������������;  . "Oh. no, It Isn't," said John. "It  will all scorn quite simple .when tho  explanation comes, It any Is needed.  In fact.-I think it will explain itself.  Just you keep those eyea ot your open  and you'll see it all very shortly." ,  Prosently John touched his companion slightly on the arm and drew her  into the shop of the village Jeweler. ,  "Now, I want you to pick out tho  kind of a wedding ring you think tho  bride should get," he said.  When he had paid and pocketed tho  plain gold l*u������tl they resumed their  walk down the village street and stopped at the local ofilco ot a great metro-  polltandally and DesnionuV" leavls*  Kate at one side, went.iip to the desk  and wrote out a brief, notice and was  about leaving with her when tho advertising clerk called after lilm and  said that he had not told, him when he  Wished the notice Inserted.  "Why, to-morrow, of course," Des-  "Now, ; their,''..said John,, as they  turned into a side street, "we'll go and  make arrangements for the "parson to  tie the knot' and tlioh wo will have  finished our "mission."    ���������/.'.���������.)  They turned Into the gravel walk  leading to the Rev. John Barclay's  house and had just reached tho vine-  clad porch when Desmond stopped  suddenly, as if ho had but that moment thought of an Important thing  and, turning to Kate;; who" was standing close.to him, almost' whispered:  "I want to ask another favor of you,"  bending his face close to hers, "I want  you to let me kiss yon before wo go  in there.". And it was done, In a moment.  Before Kate could recover from the  perfect amazement Into which John's  action had thrown her,he had dexterously drawn her; arm through' his and,  lending her up the steps, had rung tho  door bell.  The. Rev. Mri'Barclay'answered the  metallic summons Iii person and gave  John a most cordial welcome, which  surprised Kate, for she had supposed  John an agnostic and didn't think that  ho numbered members of. the .clergy  among his. Intimates.  "Mr. Barclay/' began 'John, when  they had entered- thcYsnug- parlor,  where the good gentleman's wife wa9  seated doing some fancy "work,' "I've -  come over to-night to * arrange for n,  wedding and I want.you.to perform the  ceremony." ,  "When is It to come off?" asked the  clergyman, consulting-"������'���������' small'..: date  book which he drew, from' bis -.waistcoat  pocket.  "Immediately," said John.  The Rev. Mr. Barclay cast a quiet  glance at Kate.  "And who are the partiestto ;,bo married?" he asked.  John took Kate's hand ln^ his own  anil answered firmly: "This,lady, Miss  Kate Evariston, and mysolf."  Kate could not'belteve her ears. She  stared at John Inamhzement. 'He hastened to reassure her.  "Yc.u're excited, my dear Kate. Calm  yourself."  The whole truth ''had!comeVto her.  :The explanation of the,mysterious'errand was solved. She looked into  John',3 eyes and' read love unspeakable  nnd her. own answered ;in kind, ^he  went through ..the ceremony like one  in a dream and feared it was a dream  and hoped If It were she would never  awaken.  The:parson tied ths.knot and John  slipped the ring which Kate had selected upon her finger and 'then the  parson insisted upon;--his'oscillatory  perquisite, and then they started for  home, both supremely happy. All the  way back Kate clung'"' strongly to  John's arm. '���������������������������'���������<  ...Before they, had quitted, the .Barclay   garden Kate said to Desmond: "Why  did you want to kiss ine before we  went Into:the house?"  "I'll , tell . you," returned John,  promptly. "You see; Barclay nnd I  .were'classmates.'7'I know his propensities, and-I didn't'want to suffer tho  reflection in. after, years,, that lie liad  I kissed my wife first." -  I    When the happy couple'reached their  j home "Kate' said: ��������� ���������  j    "You are the most audacious man I  ��������� over met.    You  bought the ring and  ' even Inserted a notice of our marriage  before you asked me to .marry you.  Tell mo why you did not ask me first?  Kow did' you know I'd not refuse to  ' inirryyou and make "a scene In the  minister's house?"   " ''���������  And Desmond answered: "When a  man of action .sees a girl kissing his  picture he knows .that,,the, time for  action, not words, has come, and ho  carries.her off.to the parson."  .Kate.bhfihed furiously, and'-pressinff  her face against his shoulder, whispered ever so'low"V "I love an audaclono  nan."���������Chicago Dally.

These  Courts; were    founded    over    a  thousand  years  ago, and  there, is evidence that in the year 1108 matters oi  national intcicst    to the Cinque Poita  were dealt with by them.   The Speaker  of the.Ports this year was Mr, Stafford  Charles,   Mayor  of  New   llomncy,   and  ho  appointed  as   his   chaplain   Canon  Page  Roberts,   clmulain .to   the    Lord  Mayor.    The Court.was formed in the  ancient MaUon Dicu llall.   The Court  occupied three nicies of a square, and a  ������laco was allotted to Major-Oeneral Sir  cslia Hundle, commanding   the   southeastern district, the youngest Baron oi  the,'Cinque Ports, who' received his freedom on the previous day.

When It Is possible it 1h alwnys bet*  tor to give tho growing vino uupuurt  to keep pods off the, ground, thiw lai paly increasing ti'uUnge.    To do thin it  is a good Idea to mix corn with yimr  bean seed, and tho vluo will cling to  the stalk, giving it the auw.ssary support.   A full,well developed crop will  give you from twenty-live to fifty bushels to the acre.   Tho green forage is  eaten ravenously by all stock on your  farm, but I would not continue stock  on It steadily for more than a week or  eo at a time, owing to Its fifty-four per  cent of nitrogen.   A few days off to  other. feed occasionally would be advisable.   Should you want to sacrifice  your bean crop you can cut the vino  up at. any stage ot growth, and cure  it as hay.   All farm stock will eat lvi  greedily;   or,  what would -be,   better,  plant, a field ..later which you could  use as a green forage for" a time, and  finally cut and cure It as a dry fodder.  A  good-average acre will  yield you  nearly four tons.  When the bean is ripe in the fan,  pick it, but be very careful to place  pods in an airy, drying-place���������a scaffold is best���������for fear ot heat and  mould. Most all your stock will eat  the hullB and all, but it Is better to  have them ground with hulls and feed  equal part of bran ahorts. This is excellent feed for :new milch -cows,1 increasing the flow;' off 'milk' largely.  After picking your beans in the fall  you .will most likely want to turn your  leaf and vine under for fertilizer.   You  will .find vino exceedingly  tough  and  leathery.and exceedlngy hard to shell,  and they can only .be shelled at all excepting when pods ���������are crisp dry from  exposure to sun, aud even then they  often shell, hard.   If you, want to practice economy and use your muscle freely, you"'.can.shell them fairly well by  placing pods in  a bag and pounding  then'air your might with a bludgeon.  In this way a good strong   man will  pound out six or eight bushels in a day.  With  us we have passed  that stagt,  and found a, better ;way."\- We ,have a  shelter���������a' -Uwo.men :.;machlne���������made  specially for the business,1-that1 is capable; of .turning out from five to eight  burhels an : hour,  the. bean    coming  .through sixty-nine to ninety-eight per  cent, commercially clean."  This' li a  labor saver to us, and one we appreciate, as many of us have, as we do,  from ten to eighty acres of plants to,  eell. -,-<  That the Florida velvet bean is the  coming forage and fertilizing crop ot  the country! there can-he no question,  and as a fertilizer and an uphullder ot  overworked land there Is nothing that  begina to equal It. It has grown steadily In' popular favor here, and men  who commenced to grow'it in a small  way are now growing fifty to eighty  aeres. It is certainly the finest all-  around forage, feed, fertilizer, and  shade for the sun-parched soil that  can be placed upon the farm. With ua  it has beem on trial for several years,  but it Is having a broader test tho  coming season, as I have sent it on orders to all the States of our Union, to  Honolulu, 'Canada, the nineteen Central and South American- republics,  -Austria, England, Irelan'd, Scotland,  Prance, 'Germany, Italy, Egypt and to  tar away China and Japan.

Gapes in chicks is a disease which  has existed on farms for centuries, and  the annual loss of chicks from such  cause is 'large.-- It- seems to prevail  mostly on old farms upon which fowls  have ranged for years. Experiments  : made demonstrate that when Chicks  Are kept on.clean board floors and frequently on clean new locations they  escape the difficulty. The Kentucky  experiment station, after numerous experiments and comparisons, found that  earthworms caused gapes in ' chicks,  but .whether there; is any connection  ���������between; earthworms and gapeworana  Js; unknown. The soil and' conditions  favorable to the earthworm are the'  stme for the gapeworm. On light,  candy soils, where but f������w: cnrtti-  worms are found, the chicks are seldom  atUolted by gapee.
