January ."5th, 1903, should he regarded  l>y those "citizens who keep a chrono-  lojrica I list of the principal events it)  ReveUtoke's career as a red letter day.  The first day of occupancy of the new  school building, a new school session  and a new principal. Anyone who  perchanced to he on Second St., Monday morning about I) o'clock could not  Fail to not ice the groups of youngsters  of various sizes and ages trudging  along with hooks and slates under  I heir anus. Although the different  temperaments, bilious, sanguinary,  lymphatic, etc., were represented,  i here was one noticeable . feature  possessed in common by the majority  and that was their cheeks and eyes,  betokened health and if the old saying  "a round mind in a healthy body"' be  correct, then il this city does not  produce any genii, there will he at  least a goodly number of strong  minded citizvns. The rew building  id certainly one of the best assets the  municipality can uiuu>t of and reflects  great credit upon all who have had  anything to do with it. Recently -we  made a thorough examination from  basement to ceiling, accompanied by  the architect and superintendent. Mr.  J. B. Henderson, of Grand Forks, who  is undoubtedly entitled to a full meed  of praise, both on account of the  excellency of his plana and the able  manner in which they were executed  with the skillul and faithful co operation of the contractors, Messrs. Smith  Bros, and the sub contractor, Mr. J.  Wilson. Personally ��������� we consider it.  a judicious method of having the  architect act in the dual capacity of  architect and supei in tendent, the result  has most assuredly demonstrated the  advisability in the case in point. - The  heating and sanitary arrangements  leave nothing to be desired. The  system which was installed' by their  lepresentative Mr." Oldershaw, ably  assisted by local talont, is known as  the Kutley system, based on .tue ulau  of the old Sineud Dowd, but with all  of the hitters defects eletninated.  There are two large furnaces. " which  supply warm air to all the rooms and  in such a manner tha.t the temperature  can be easily regulated, to give a full  description would occupy too much  space, but we would mention in passing that thesanitary arrangements are  na vastly superior to what we had  before as day is to night. Every room  is well lighted and there is a sense of  cheei fulness felt as soon as entry is  made into any of them. The front  entrance is from Second St., the first  door on the right is occupied by the  principal, Mr. A. E. Miller and his  class. This gentleman is a recent  arrival in our midst from Vancouver,  where he was teaching the young idea  how to shoot in the Dawson school.  He comes well recommended and it is  earnestly hope he may satisfy the  most critical expectations.-The second  room on the rigjiiT-is occupied by Miss  Dent and her pupils. The first one on  the left by Miss Fraser and her juveniles.  The second one on the left we find  .Miss Grant in chaige of those who  have jlist started on their bcholastir  i.-neer. In this loom there is an  evidence of forethought on the part of  somebody and that is the hlackhoaids  ure within reach of the smallest tots.  All of the rooms are well supplied in  the matter of blackboards and so  .irranged that there is no straining of  i he eyes on the part of any of the  pupils. The stairway to the flooi  .i.huve is .wide, step.* bioad. the hani-  -tei!-firmly and solidlv made and the  local firm of Sawyer Bros, is worthy of  special praise for their workmanship.  The Hist door to the left on reaching  (he landing is in charge of Miss  Robinson, whilst the room adjoining  is at present under the supervision of  Mr. A. Smith, who is temporarily  relieving bis sister. Miss Annie Smith,  who has gone east for the benefit of  her health. On the opposite side of  the hall are two rooms with an open  arch which can be utilized for an  assembly room and wheie it is  intended the singing classes shall be  held, as an organ used tor accompaniment is placed under the arch. This  instrument is old and nut of harmony  with the rest of the building ae well as  in point of sound and we hope that ere  long it may be substituted by a first  class piano. On the floor above which  we examined by climbing a step laddet  the floor space is open arid of course  will need finishing and furnishing  before it can be occupied.  This will no doubt occur at  a date not far distant if the present  rapid increase in the pupils attending  continues. We did not go on the roof  as there is quite a pitch but the view  enjoyed from the belfry is one worth  theui'onble of attvnt. In conclusion  we can but teiterate that this valuable  addition to the city's property is one of  which eveiy citizen can be pleased  with and we foel confident that we  express the uniinimous vote of the  community in accoiding a hearty  vote of thanks to the board of trustees  on the creditable manner in which  they have pei formed the duties during  their incumbency.    ���������  Public Meeting.  An open meeting of the Local  Division of the United Brotherhood of  Railway Employees, will be held on  Thursday evening at 8 p.m. in Selkirk  ball.  Mr- Haj&ld V. Bone, the general  organizer for Canada, will give an  address upon the principles of the  order. All railroad men are earnestly  invited to attend.   Admission Free.  The Band Boys Ball.  - The ball given under the auspices of  the  Independent   band   New   Year's  Eve proved tone all that was expected,  one of the most  enjoyable   affairs of  the kind ever held in the city, and one  which will   long   be   remembered  by  those who weie fortunate enough to  be  present.     The   hand,   under   the  | leadership of Mr. R. Sawyer, supplied  the   music   and   those   presrnt    were'  unanimous in the declaration  that it.  was the bust ever furnished for a dance  in Revelstoke.   This was fully demonstrated   by   the   fact that   with   the  exception of the square dances, every  number on the programme had. to   be  repeated   befoie   the    dancers    were  satisfied.     Combined   with  first class  music   was   an   excellent  floor which  made dancing a pleasure.  At the tick of midnight the entire  company formed a large circle and  sang -'Auld Lang Syne" after which  the various couples waltzed in the  New Year. Supper was then served  to which full justice was done and  during the interval, while the band  were refreshing themselves, Mrs.  Wilkes played a few extras which were  much appreciated.5&The second part of  the programme was then taken up and  dancing was continued till \������ a. m.  when the "Good Night Waltz'' was  played. ' .   -*  FISH RIVER  GOLD CAMP  The Late Mrs. Anderson.  The funeral of .Mrs. Nels Anderson  who died on the evening.^of the 2nd  lust, was held from the family residence on Monday. There were a large  number of friends of'the deceased to  pay a last token of respect. The  fimeiyil left ..the home at one o'clock  and proceeded to the Presbyterian  church where'the Rey". yv;,^). Calder  preached the funeral sermon, during  the course of which he spoke of the  kindly Christian spirit of the deceased.  After the service in the church the  procession proceeded to the cemetery  wheie the body was interred. ��������� The  deceased leaves a husband and three  young sons to monrn her loss, to  whom the Hekald extends its  sympathy in this sad hour of bereavement.  Card of Thanks.  The Independent hand desires to  heartily thank all those who assisted  in any way at their ball on New Year's  eve,  E. Edwards, Secy.  The Richest Gold Ore Camp in  B. C.    The Camborne Group  Will Test Their Big Values in  the Stamp Mill in February.  Although   mid-winter, and   usually  quiet in the mining camps of, British  Columbia, the Fish Biver gold camp,  is       a       striking        exception       to  the general rule, and is   a   scene   at  this   season   of   great    mining   and  business activity.     A Herald representative visited   Golcflelds   and   the  Fish Biver camp   last   week, with  a  view to looking   oyer   the   situation  at this season of the year.    In every  direction development   work is being  pushed ahead.     On   the famous Beatrice,   Western    Star     and     Oyster  groups a large number of men are at  work driving tunnels and  developing  ore bodies for   shipment   and   treatment*     On   the   famous    Camborne  group there is a large force   of   men  at   woik   under,  the direction of the  manager, H. Z. Brock, and the  engineer, A. U. Floeter.     A   new tunnel  was started about two weeks ago  on  the   Goldfinch   claim   just below the  big rich showing at the  top   of   the  hill and 25 feet of tunnel was finished  in-less than a  week's   time, showing  the   speed   that - the   work -can    be  accomplished   with the   Durkee electric diill.1 In the twenty five  feet   a  number of stringers and rich looking  gold quartz was cut through and the  drills were working in a splendid gold  rock.     A   new   tunnel   will be commenced at ence lower down the   hill  which will give greater depth on the  ore bodies and when finished sufficient  of rich ore of the Goldfinch   will   be  blocked out for the constant running  of the mill.      The   stamp, mill which  the company are rushing through  to  completion will be in operation   very  shortly.       The   foundation, which is  the most important in the  construction, has been completed and is very  substantial.       The     plates    for   the  rafters were all in   place   when    the  HKRAtD man left and the  closing of  the     mill     and     erection     of     the  machinery can   now   bo   done   very  rapidly.      The    tramway    from   the  Goldfinch to  the  mill   is just  about  ready.     The upper terminal   is completed   and   the   lower   terminal   is  all ready for the work by this   time.  The   confidence   of   the mining men  who know the Fish River  camp has  never wavered.   There is no camp in  British   Columbia   that   carries   any  bigger valius ui free gold    ore   than  does this camp, while the silver  lead  mines   are   all     high     grade.     The  permancey   of   the   gold   ore ledges  weie never better demonstrated than  by   the   test of the Silver Cup ore^ >i  short Mm"   ago. when   a   return   of  $283 in gola '.o the   ton   was   given.  This   is   a   siarlling   piece   of news,  when   it is  k'tnwn   that   the   Silver-  Cup has been operated for   the   past  eight years as a high grade silver lead  property and very little attention was  paid to the gold   ore   in   the   viens.  The   Triune    now    owned    ny    the  Metropolitan Co., is also proving rich'  in gold, far beyond the   expectations  of  the  old  owners,   as   well   is   the  company now operating the property,  who purchased it in May last,  solely  as a high grade silver lead  property.  The same can be said of the Beatrice  and Silver Dollar groups. The Beatrice  has been developed  for the past five  years for silver lead only, and last fall  was the first time there was any attention paid to the big gold quarts', ledges  crossing the Beatrice and Silver Dollar.  A thoiough test across the two ledges  gave a return of $13.20 to the ton in  gold on these properties,  while special  samples   gave   returns   up   into   the  hundreds.    On  the Camborne group,  owned by tin: Northwestern Development Syndicate, there are tremendous  shewitifts of high grade gold ore, from  which  the Herald   nutn personally  took samples that gave returns of over  $3,C'J0 to the ton. As lime and development  proceed   the  confidence in the  camp extends and the Herald looks  forward to the operations of the stamp  mill on   the Camborne group as  the  beginning of a-new eve of " prosperity  for the famous Fish River gold camp.

On Thursday evening, January :5th,  Flora Macdonald and Gavin Spence will  appear in the Opera Horse, under the  auspices of the Revelstoke St. Andrew's  Society. Tlie two are well known entertainers and are very highly recommended  by the press and people in the east. The  Ca'gary Herald says: "Last night's concert in the Opera House was, in a way, a  novel experience for the large number of  ladies and gentlemen who attended. Not '  only was the programme crowded with  humor and pathos, but to the majority of" ,  those present new beauties were revealed  in Scotch music and new meaning-s thrown  into time worn Scotch songs. CIl is .  always a , difficult task for two people,  however good ihey may be, to entertain ,  an audience .hroughout a wholw program  but Ga\in Spencc and Miss Flora Mac-  Donald proved themselves to be what  their.press criticisms claimed for them,  really great Scottish entertainers.  "Mr.   Spence, who "was  dressed   in all-  the  brilliance   and   glory of kiits, tartan,  a.id   sporran,   and, looked   every   inch a  fighting  man,   introduced the prograioaic-r-  with-a   preliinini������ry "Talk oh Scotland and .  its songs.    Mr._ Spence, with, his   broad,"  ScptCti   dialect,   has   aT refreshing   ,and -_  wholesome   stjle, whirh   took immensely  Willi    ihi:   audience,   and   lii-'" numerous  '  Scotch stories, if  slightly affected by age,  were remarkably well told.    Mr. Spenc*'"s  voice is a   powerful   tenor, into  which at ".  times he throws ,-i-touching pathos.  "Flora Mac Donald is a beautiful dancer  and he.- two efforts in   this line, the High- .  land   Fling   and   the  Shean Trews, were  loudly encored.      Her   voice, though  not  powerful, is  sw eet, and she has a charm-   -  ing manner on the stage."'  The next regular meeting of L. O. L.  No. 1058 will he held on Friday evening, Jr 11.10th.

V  Some ethnologists have endeavored to  place the cradle ox the Aryan race in  Lithuania and have maintained that  there, rather than in India, the language  begins. Whether this be true or not,  certainly the ancient speech of Lithuania  .is one of the oldest of human tongues.  The study of derivations as applied to  language is one of the most fascinating  which can engage our attention.i; History, science, art. evolution, to say 110-  -ihing of folklore and fancy, are preserved' by philology.  I have been looking up the meaning  ���������oi the word '"restraint," and I find that  one oi its origns is in an ancient Lithuanian word meaning to freeze, conveying the idea of absolute rigidity. This  understanding lends emphasis to the  word in modern usage. It seems to indicate that restraint originally referred  to a power as inexorable and as ruthless as the cold. Of all substances ico  1b the most devoid of any quality that  ���������appeals. If there inay.be sympathy in  the inanimate���������as in the sunlight or the  flower���������there can be none in the glacier,  the iceberg, the frozen sea. They stand  for absolute and unbreakable pitiless  constraint, the absence of life, the dead  ������s distinguished from the quick. A cold  bell is infinitely more appalling than a  hot one, if we only stop to think of  it  That is what restraint should mean,  then, a cold, passionless, rigid control;  a conquest of self, a self-mastery which  commands personal powers, controls  vices and exalts virtues; conquest over  eclf. stern, irrevocable, overwhelming.  And constraint in human affairs'-in necessary to success. -'Achievement is more  often the restilt of self-control than any  other quality. The necessity for self-  control in every field of endeavor or expression, is :at'-": once ; apparent to the  thoughtful.  Shall 1 enlarge or diminish .my sermon  "If I now limit.restraint entirely to I hat  'littfe'/member called the tongue'( J'cr-  haps^ because -speech is so easy there.-'is  more necessity for restraint and control  In talk than in anything else. It cannot be gainsaid that we talk too much.  As individualss-this is true; and as the  nation-is'simply the collected-individual'  it is equally true of the country. We  talk too-much about every subject under the sun. Sometimes' I think the  Tate of tiie Athenians'is before,us. The  nation wliiyh of ail others litis the proud-  Kti record in nrl, i'i letters,'in history,  tonally decrcnerated through its pcisis-'  -tent ^o:..".,) and gulble into a community  whose sati'inal insignia, it was suggested  by one- of the satirists, should he a huge  -.-.:.d v.::^',;:j:0- tou^i:;!. The Athenians  wi-rc finally overthrown by a people not  half so gified as they whose habit of  reiieen.ee h..s passed into a proverb and  ,-eiven us tr.e noble adjective ''laconic."  As? nation and as iuilividuitls we have .  the fatal  gift  oi  fluency in a complex)  laiigit.i::*   constantly   increasing  and   of,  vast ili-xiliility ;  to this is added an exuberant  fancy,  facile  modes  of expression and a constant desire to say something,   even   if  it  he   something  about  ���������noising.   Where two or three are slithered   together   in   this   country   there   is  usually a speech called fur and dolivere.!,  eometiiiu-s two or throe, and mori> often  than r.ot it happen* that the Lord is not  pre.M.-nt in t:.s group cither.

Nine-tenths  of it serves no purple whatever and is  of no value to anybody. We could get  along a great deal better without it.  We waste" lime in useless discussions, in  considering subjects about which we  know, and about which we wish to  .know, nothing. We are so busy with  our tongues that our brain?, either as  "talkers or talked to, are unable to keep  pace. Vi'e do not digest what we say or  irrhat we write, and we do not digest  ���������what we read or what we hear. We  are as mad as Hamlet and over "Words,  words, words." Vox et praeterita nihil!  The great men of history have been  ���������silent men. The gre.-n nations of the  world have been "silent nations. Not  because, in either case, they had nothing to .=:>y, but because tbey thought  bard and long before they said or did  things, and because they exercised the  great quality of self-restraint, beginning  in language, in spoken thought, and extending naturally therefrom in most  other other directions. The truly heroic is never garrulous; loquacity is as  Incongruous with a hero as fatness is  <with a saint. The greatest and most successful patriot of history���������unless it he  Washington���������was that Dutch William of  Orange, who was called the Silent.

Thought and expression are co-rclatcd,  but the man who attempts to be nil expression with no basis of thought soon  ���������comes to grief. There was something  good in the Stoic, He endured in sii-  -ence. There is something to admire in  the fatalism of the Orient which suffers  ���������rid gives no sign.

The lost art of meditation  might be sought for again, to our great  advantage. Let us see with how few  words we can get along, and let us  strive to have great thoughts of God  and nismback of our simple expressions.  Let us cultivate the stylo of silence.

That was Talleyrand's perverted" idea. It was a good  thing for him that he had something  with which to conceal his thoughts, for  he was one of the most ignoble characters who have ever glossed over lying  and treachery by calling it diplomacy!  But speech is" meant to express thought.  It is one of God's noblest gifts to men.  It distinguishes us from the animal, pro  Tided we use it wisely, provided it has  thought back of it. The gossiping, gabbling, eternally talking man, whose words  arc as shallow as tjic babbling brook,  is entitled to no more respect than a  chattering monkey. Take time to think,  then. There is no thought without time,  there can be nib'wisdom without silence.  There ..was-silence in heaven once for  ���������half an hour."

Of all vices, jibbing is one of the  most objectionable, and, when established, the least amenable to treatment,  says The Horseman. As an occasional  and passing freak, it is sometimes displayed by horses on first leaving tho  stable, as a result of exuberance oS  spirits begotten of idleness and good  living; but these are only' transitory  acts of playfulness, quickly overcome  by a word of the -remonstrance or a  flick of the whip. It is otherwise..with  the confirmed jibber, who will not bo  moved cither by coaxing or coercion,  excepting in a backward direction, to  the danger of those upouliim and about  him. This form of vice is for the most  part the outcome of a cruel disregard  of the comforts and requirements of  tlic animal in the course of his tuition.  .When', the time comes for him to ba  put, into the shafts he is often made to  wear an ill-fitting collar, or, if the fit  be right, the leather lining has become  hard and unyielding, and with the one  or the other, or both, of these conditions to contend with, he is made tii  do his first journey, perhaps uphill, with  the result that his shoulders are galled  or the withers are chafed and bruised,  or both. For "the, time being the patient beast bears the infliction, but.on  the morrow, when tin; ill-fitting liariuSs-S  is again applied to the swollen and  painful skin, he naturally rebels ami  declines to start, and seeks relief from  pain by backing, and so removes all  traction on the. traces, which he has intelligence enough to know is the canso j  of his  suffering. i  It is under these circumstances''Unit j  coercion is brought into play by untut- !  oral breakers, and. failing in this, un- |  willing obedience is exacted by means |  of the whip and other forms of punish. |  intuit and brute force. The tVar and j  mistrust thus engendered sooner or i  later excite in him a stubborn resist- ;  ance which, unless appeased, ends in in- j  curable vice. The remedy for such -i ,  state of things is almost too simple to'  need  description.  The   intelligent   and     Itumnnc     lior?.-.- ;  breaker will  take care  that every  item .  of   harness   is   wMl   fitted,  well   padded.,  and nicely adjusted, and. above till, that--  -ULC^Jjarlier^ussiji!?.._:! re._of. jOiort   dura- .  lion,   the   trap  woin>ul,iiice!d7-flnil   Hie-  siiritioe   to   be   driven   over   level     and  easygoing.     Any    disposition    to   sore-  ncss  of  parts  in  contact with  the   ha.--!  ncss   should   receive   prompt   attention, \  and,   if  need   be,  discontinuance   fdr  3. \  lime of the objectionable collar or sad-  die. or whatever else may be at fault.     1  Strain   on   the  collar  in  ascending  a :  hill not only tends to tire the colt, but j  to cause chafing of the shoulders,  and, I  should  he  attempt to  hack for one  01 i  both of these reasons, the relief afford- |  ed  by  an  easy  descent  will   encourage  him  to persist in his retrograde movement, which sli-mid he promptly stopped  by blocking the wheels.  "Any soreness or chafing of parts in  contact with harness should be the ai-.r-  nal for cessation of work until the  chafed skin  has become reinstated.  Should the habit be repeated, 4.\e  false collar, or some such protection,  should be employed to guard the shoulders, and, as a young horse's mouth is  always tender, an eye should be given  to the bit and bridle, which, if in any  respect severe or ill-fitting, will materially aggravate the. fault, and rerVcr it  more difficult to overcome. All else may |  be left to patience and persuasion, with  the judicious employment of gentle  coercion should occasion require it.  Once an established vice, jibbing is practically incurable.

Last year a  bulletin  w������3  issued   by |  the  Dominion  Department*.of  Ajrricub ,  ture dealing with anthrax, and demonstrating the efficacy of the use of j������a������-  teur'3 vaccines to produce immunity.  The anthrax bacilli themselves are  easily killed, but their spores resisit ordinary germicides, and even such degress  of heat'as kill other spores of bacteria.  If the disease be left unchecked and preventive measures be neglected, not only  may present serious losses be experienced, but the land itself may be rendered  infective for centuries. The spores of  the bacillus in seme way get into the  ground and remain there in a������dormant  state for many years. The skin, hair,  wool, hoofs and horns of infected animals, if soiled with blood, are contaminated by the bacillus. It is an infection the very reverse of that of contagious pleuro-pneumonia, which requires  the contact of living diseased animnis  with living healthy animals, whereas anthrax infection rarely takes place from  living animals, unless the blood containing bacilli 'be allowed to contaminate the  food, or inoculate a wounded surface.  Th* carcass nnd excreta are to be dreaded as the sources of infection.  If after death the blood be confined  within the body, nnd discharges from  tho natural openings be prevented by  plugging them with tow saturated with  a 20 per cent, solution of carbolic acid,  and the carcass be carried, not; dragged,  to the place, prepared for burning it, no  infection is likely to take place from  it. As a precautionary measure, however, the .stall and surroundings where  the. death occurred should be. thoroughly  disinfected, as well as the cart or waggon in which jt lins been  carried.  After burning the carcass bury th"*  ashes deeply with lime. The risks that  are run by any carelessness in dealing  with a carcass from which millions of  millions of infective spores mny tic given  off, which'mny yenrs nfter infect find  destroy cattln. sheep, swine nnd horsed  and enormously reduce the value of tlio  farm, must, he obvious.

The answer is, the more fact  that they are whites gives a slight advantage when marketing fowls ; and,  besides that, the practical poultrymen  have taken them up, rather than tho  other Wyandottes, and bred them especially for practical purposes. Therefore we see tho 213 egg strains of the  whites advertised, but not of the other  breeds of the same family.  ft may bo conceded that the Wyandottes on one or iwo points do not  equal the Hocks ; they weigh a pound  less and they do not mature quite so  quickly. But they lay more eggs, they  are plumper and* fuller on the breast,  and are smaller boned.

Now I have  always disliked philanthropists and  altruists without knowing why, nnd  yet Hie reason is one Uhat should be instantly obvious to any thoughtful man.  The trouble is that they lack subtlety,  and that there is no excuse for then '"'I  am holler tlian thou" attitude. Their altruism is all back end foremost, and that  is why so many of them are rcgaidcd by  a large section of the public as men who  have not learned the difficult art of  minding their own business.

"Very well, then," Macalre commented on the other's answer. "Then you're

"I've heard that there's a Mr. Lionel

J'l'm that 'Macalre. I like to amuse
myself, and I can afford to pay for it;
I -do pay for It. I .invite you to cater
for my amusement, and I'm willing to

I've explained, I don't mind giving you
a sum down IX you're so situated that

;"Thank you,'; said Newcome.    "If I
saw that I  could  earn  the  money,  I
* don't deny 'that it would he a convenience."      ��� -

.  , - The Rest of. the Baigain.. .,   -_���.
"How soon could you get into training-  for  the  biggest  "light    you   ever
had?" asked Macalre.   "That Is, every- .
tbtng.being favorable.",    .     K    \    ���
"I could be ready" in" a fortnight, I'm
sure," Newcome answered, after an'tn-
'stant's thought. "I haven't much' superfluous flesh to work off, and I al-i
ways go in for a certain amount of
exercise every day, with the exception"
of-a few when I slept on a seat on th*
Victoria Embankment; Without excising each morning I feel as lout,"
somehow, as I do without my cold
plunge/  But as for a fight "   '
���'No 'buts' until you've heard me
out!" 'Macalre toroke in! "*My friends
all.know me. for a sptortsman, and I
hav-e few friends, who are'not sporting
men. Sometimes,���to amuse ��� them, I
have a show la a big vault of a room
under my house, and nobody outside-is
the wiser. Last spring I managed a
pretty good glove flght-^oe Nash,
known as Joey .the Kid, and a mulatto,
Bill Clay. They---were both "-first-rate
men. The Kid is the champion of his
county, and since he downed Clay,
who had a splendid record in the prize-
rlngt in-the States "
'U'vc'heaid of him," said Newcom?.
' "1 ttfought you must have. Well, the
Kid has gone swaggering about shearing there's no one who can to_'.!. ""-.
He's getting tlresomo,i*md I should like
nothing better than to see you knock
him out���at my place, with my friends
and me looking on���for a purse, of, say,
two thousand) pounds. "It-'.would be -a
very sporting thing for you"to'accept."
Hope Newcome flushed a little, and
did not hurry In answering. He saw
that the millionaire looked upon him
as an animal, and valued 'him as a
man may value a new hunter which
he thlnks'-of,.iec'urlngT <~Kewcome'>felt
that there were things In him of more
worth than his muscles,, and he liked-
not tho proposal made by the mllllon-
���aire.������But-only- this-morning -he-had-
told himself that he would do anything
for a hundred pounds, even to committing a crime. Not for his own necessities, though he wanted money .badly
enough, but for another use upon which
he had set .his 'heart and soul. -Now,
here,was the chance, of earning .much
more than'the sum he had thought of���
���a chance which'a few hours ago had
seemed as far away from him as the
stars in heaven. .It .would be madness
to think oMe'ttlng It slip.   ' "-
But Macalre believed that ,hei was
hesitating'in. the hope of'"a larger
bribe. That bribe he had meant t'o ,ofr
fer by and by; now, however, he proceeded to "spring" It at.once".       i,. ������- '
"Two thousand pounds Is the purse
for 'Which you -would put on tho
floves," he said., '"But I'm rather a
���jw-himsical fellow. 'I like my jest with
the world, which has played some hard
tricks on mc;-ah'd in'this hour that you
and I have had together, an idea has

Two,thousand pounds Is a, good enough

and^I hinted J.o you that ,you might
make" your fortune. If you knock the
Kid out you get.the purse; but h'ow
(would you like -a"t the- same time to
blossom out as a rich young man about
town, .with a name and enough money-
to buy you a place in society? A place
as good as mine^ for, Instance?"
CMacalre -watched the.siark.face, but
It changed .very little. ThereVas only
a slight quivering of the lips for a
eetond, which ended In a smile���not
exactly 'the sort of emotion that the
millionaire had expected .to call "up.
He had looked-fon astonlshmeht.
."The higher the plate, the better I
should like It,"'said Newcome, laughing. "But I don't-see any ladder to begin tho climb on at picscnt." ���
"If.yourflght Joey the Kid, and lick
him," returned Macalre, In" tho vernacular of Jhls kind, "I'll provide the

xou'd havo to put up -with a foreign
makeshift. What would you think of-
er���let me see, Baron von Zellheim?"
Now, at least,' Macalre 'had no need
for    disappointment, -for    the    young
man's face was red from chin to forehead.    "How did you happen to think*
of that for a name?" he asked, quickly.
"It came Into my head," answered
Macaire, "partly because there really
is such a title, which has lapsed, I believe, for lack of a man'with the right
to bear it; partly because it's not Important enough to be doubted and disputed; and partly because of an association In my mind."' 0.*"
"Would you object to telling me what
��� that association Is?"
. ."Not at all. When you recalled to
me the fact that I. had seen you-at the
Duke'-of Clarence's theater one night"
some weeks ago I remembered that I
then asked my friend Anderson who
you were. Said he: .'That young man
was sent to "me with i- letter of introduction from the once famous F..B. Z.'
Well, I knew 1*. E. Z. slightly���a long
time ago, when ohe was very^ young
and.I not much oldeK IE she-had .been
a man she would have been" Baron von,
Zellheim.. You knew her personally, I;
suppose? Did she ever mention that
to you?" ,
"Yes!  She spoke of her antecedents."
"If she had., married and had a son he
would have been the Baron von Zell-'
helm. But, as a matter of fact, I believe she never -did marry. However,
you may know better than,I about
that.", -'     '
"No," remarked Newcome, coolly.,
"About her private life, until I.had'the'
privilege of meeting her, I knew very
little." This time his expression told
���no^more than .his words.
"Well, you understand what I meant
by.the 'association,' " quietly explained
Macalre. "Seeing you, 'and remembering, what Anderson said, brought" up
the thought of.the" beautiful F." E. Z.
So I recalled the title which Is going,
begging���a good old German name, and
nobpdy-to dispute' it, if "you choose to
keep your mouth shut.> As the lady is
your, friend������"/,.     '-   -    '.'
"She is dead!" 'cut In tho other.        '
So George Anderson had notified Macalre .after receiving the information
from'Newcome: 1 But the, millionaire
affected" surprise' and regret. Ho still
professed ceitainty, however, that she
would gladly have.lent the family title
to her young, f 1 lend if it, could serve
him. ' ,
"'Why should it soi.ve me?" asked
Newcome.
'fit would offer a foundation to acsiii
upon, which, with the money I should
put afyour seivice. would at onceslve
you a free pass into society���real society, I meaii.'Va ,""���,' ', ,���/   -
"But "I "don't understand yet why
you should put money at my service',"
Newcome answeied,
"To amuse myself. I should like above
all things to play a trick on the society which has only accepted me because of what I have. I should enjoy
seeing you take everyone by storm;
seeing you flattered, and run after, and
made much of, on my recommendation.
I tell you, if you fight the Kldi for me
and come ..out on top, you shall have
six months of-such'llfe; as perhaps
you've never dreamt of."
The   thought   that   flashed    through
���Hope   Newcome's   head     was:     "Six
months ought  to be. enough  for ray.
purpose.- With such, a chance as this
madman.offers me for sgine queer iea-v
son of his own, which he's hiding and'
���doesn't want me to guess at, I could
not only.gl've the help I would'sell my"
lite  to give, but I should be alble to

"And at the end of the six months?"
he Hald aloud.      , *
" 'After'mp,"the,delqge,' " smiled Macaire, grimly. "Why, at the end of the
six months I should come to the kernel
of my joke. Wouldn't you be willing
to help me<"c'rack'the shell?" -
; "I don't, know, ivhat you mean by
that. Perhaps.you don't wish me to."
"' "I confess I'm fond of a harmless
mystery," answered the, man just baffled by the mystery wrapped round the
"vanlsljgd figure of a girl. "If I���merely to amuse myself���not out of any exaggerated whim to be generous���offer

without asking questions, -.Wouldn't you
grant me my mystery till the end of.
that phase of our partnership?"
"I've never yet taken any money I
haven't earned,"  said Newcome.
"I mean you shall earn this. At first,
with the fight'(the thing's off if the
Kid-knocks you out);'afterwards, at
the end of the six months. Oh, ""you
needn't look-so suspicious, my friend. ,1
swear I would ask nothing dishonorable. Will you-talce my word.for that,
and, trusting me for the rest, give me
my way?"
"""Lionel Maealre, -with his hideous,
scarred face, and pale eyes, did not look
a' person to whom trust would naturally flow out; but Hope Newcome wanted money and position���position not
for what it could give him of enjoyment, but for the help It would' afford
in the mission for which he had lived
until the moment when an Incentive
even stronger came suddenly into his
life. Money he must have for the accomplish ment of both objects.
It seemed .to him, holding no cue to
the tnotlf-muslc which sang so strange
a tune In Lionel IMncalre's blood, that
tlie eccentric millionaire must be hovering otr the verge of madness���a verge
where It was dlfllcult to draw a line of
definition. But ther,e was the offer,,
such as It wns, for him, Hope New-

Hope Newoome had wanted as many
hours, meaning to walk by the sea In
the November darkness making up his
mind. But the offer of fifty pounds
down and a chance to live without
spending too much of it was, in the
strange circumstances known only to
himself, more than he could resist.
"I'll try it," he said, without waiting
for even one of the five minutes to go
���by.
CHAPTER XXI.       '   '
>  A-Backward Glance.
When Winifred Gray had  cried out
, her broken prayer for help on the night
' of her great trial at the theater, Mrs.
Furdy had"honestly striven to comfort-
the girl.
The old woman thought that the
young one made far too much of the
ordeal through which' she was'expected
,ta pass, and bluntly said'so. "What's
an extra petticoat here or there?" she
had scornfully "demanded. ' "There's
many a girl just as good without as
with 'em. My own daughter" now is
one of the best, and she plays the boy
In pantomime,' my dear, whenever she
can get the job, and I .wish she had one
now. It didn't kill me, not, it. Wr-y
should-it. your mother?"
There was a difference, .but perhaps1
too subtle for Mrs. Purdy's comprehension. Winifred; quivering andpant-
ing still, "did not attempt to golnto it,
tout a few words which tile woman had
spoken made her turn wet, -wistful
eyes up to the common old face.
"You've" a daughter, of your own",'
she said. "For her sake, and for my
mother's, help me. It isn't only this
scene'that is'^o dreadful." There is far.
more than that. A man���a very rich
man ��� has persecuted - and plotted
��� against me. My playing Mazeppa and
being here at all to-night is part of
the trick. He would spoil my whole
life-if'he-could���I think he has nearly
spoilt it now. This is to bring me Into
the dust under his feet; and he would
be glad if the shame of it killed my
mother,-who'is-'very 411, for then* I
should have no one onjjarth to care for
or protect me. Thinlf how you would
feel If your'daughter���your good daughter���were in such trouble and danger.
Do for me what you would have my
mother do for ,her if our places were
changed:    Help-me- to   get   away���to
hide'myself from this "man."	
She caught the woman's skirt with
her hands, when,, Mrs., Purdy half
turned away." Eyes, and shaking voice,
and falling tears all did their part in
pleading.
"'Dear me, if you ain't suddenly the
image of my own beautiful lady, the
first and .dearest" I was ever dresser
to!" exclaimed Mrs. Puidy. "It's your
eyes���I think���and the look of your
face now. I'll never forget till the day
I die, seeing her cryin' because of a
trouble a bit like yours. Why, ir there
was anything I could do for you, miss,
I'd do it and be glad, for my gal's sake,
and the look on you like mylady.   But
what could a body like me do that
would be any use? In fifteen minutes
you'll be on'the stage, and "
'"But there are those fifteen minutes
first. "Somehow, if you would, you
might smuggle me out.of the theater,
'and then, if you could ,tell me what to
do just for the night "
"Hist!" whispered the old dresser,
holding up a finger of-warning. "Someone Is coming.to the,door."
��� "Winifred was hushed Into Instant
silence, her wet eyes large and- shining,
her lips parted for hurried, uneven
breaths.
r ^Knuckles rapped out a summons on
the door. It was then that the,stage-
manager Jiad asked Mrs. Pufdy how
she was getting on. With a quick,
meaning glance at Winifred, her answer-had- been that-she-was-t'gettlng
on as well as could be expected."
Then he had been Induced to go
away, and the parley had begun again
where It had'been so abruptly broken
off. -
"Supposing I could get you out���I
don't say I could, but supposing"���the
dresser went on, "you couldn't go to
your lodgings, could you? This rich
man you're talkln' about, he's sure to
know where you lodge, eh?"
"They have my address here at the
theater. 'He could easily have found
out."-      -���'.----
"Then he has found out.    You may
bet,oijithat,<.miss._.The 'search^for you
would begin  the  minute' they dl'scov-
erpdVyou'd given 'em the slip.. And If
you'was* to   try  and^get  to London,
eviivtheVail;way stations wo.uld be the
���very place's they'd look for you."
'"I haven't, a. penny.    I  couldn't  go
to London If I. wanted to," said*Winl-,
fred.    "I'm/everi"in  debt at my lodg-,
In'gs���for I was counting on my salary
at the end of the week."
"There it is, you see!" .       ^
"Ah, but I can earn money, somehow. Hide me at your house, and 1
swear I'll pay you back one day before
long. Do help me. In a few mlnute.-
it will be too late."
As the girl talked she had begun
unfastening the hated silken garments,
for Mazeppa's "great scene." But, as
she would have begun hurriedly dressing herself in her own clothes, Mrs
Purdy, with a shrewd glint in her little
eyes, laid a-restraining hand on the
girl's arm. "
"It you want to get off without leaving a trace," she said, quickly, "you
mustn't put on one of your own things.
And look here, It isn't payment I was
thlnkln' of, 'ttvas yomcthln' else. My
gal's got diphtheria, and I've kep' it
from the do'ctors, so she could be
nussed at home, she cried so at the
thought of goln' into hospital. She's
better now, but she's laid up yet. Ain't
you afraid?"
"No," ansuerod Winifred. "I'll help
nurse -her. I'm a. good nurse���m>

Winifred.

that you couldn't have left the theater,

had a thick veil now,, to hide youi
face, you could slip out of this room
while Jeffrey's back was turned; I'd
peep first and make sure , you'd z.

stage-hand about the place, and tin

you weren't bein' dressed in here fo.
your next scene. Miss Emmet���one of

after "the.first act. If you could g"
now, it would be about her time, am"
with a veil "
"My black' chiffon fichu," cried Winifred. "Doubled, it would hide my
face."
In five minutes she was dressed ani
ready to "go; Mrs. Purdy peered out,
,'even her-tjld heart'DJOling fast with
excitement.-1 Jeffrey was talking to Sel-
-lm's jrroom behind the big screen. No
one was looking. " "Now!" whispered
the old woman. "Don't forget the wa>
I've told you to go when you get out.
Now's your one chance."'
Winifred tdoR.lt. Mrs. Purdy softlj
shut the door after her and locked it,
muttering to herself. - She had, whli.-
getting the girl ready for the venturo_.
told her how she must, when she
passed through the stage entrance, go
to the left, take the second turning to
the rixbt, first to the left again, and
so en through confusing directions Until she should come to a little street
called SsJt street. -The Purdy house
was No. IS (there were but ' wenty
heuses In the street), but the old woman feared that Winifred would never
find her way. She had said that she
would be certain to remember the directions, since so much depended on
not forgetting; still, Mrs. Purdy doubted that the glrlts confused, "excited
mtndcould possibly retain them wlth-
���out getting hopelessly mixed.
She had done all that she could do,
however, and in the midst of her misgivings a crabbed sense, of humor set
her laughiiig at the,thought of Wlm.
fred ��� Gray's slim little fleet} flopping
through the,streets in the Purdy, go-
loshes^���for the smart patent leather
shoes had been left.behind .with everything else that was'Winifred's.
The old woman's meditations were-
Interrupted by another call from the
stage-manager;\ and she;had gained v
three or .four"" minutes' time for, the
fugitive by*her: complaints, that It was
difficult to dress other peop'le who were
fainting.
"In for a penny,"'In for a pound,"-
was her motto; and her conscience was,
not of the mifnosa'type, -which shrinks
from a fib or two'.' 'in fact, she ^vas.to/
tell, many more before the night was
out, and with such innocent eyes that
her prevarications would . have done,
credit to  an' accomplished -actress.
But she, th'i^igh feeling her triumph"
was desperately impatient to be at'
-home. "What had happened there?"
she continued to ask herself, under the"*
plucld mask of the commonplace, dried-
apple face. Had that poor, distracted
lassie ever found her way through the
darkness? , ..        -   ,
CHAPTER  XXII. "
A Lady In a Veil, and a Man in^a
Mask. v j
"All went well with Winifred, so far"
.as she could tell, until she was out of
the theater, and had taken a few'of the
many 'turnings prescribed^ .by hei
'friend/- Shev did not, think- thatr herr
leaving'the theater had'attracted "any
attention, as several ladies of the bal-^
���let, employed in the first act only, were'
departing for their homes, about the
3ame time. And" she was nearly cer-.
tain that, at all events, ,she was not
being followed. '���
When she had gone a certain distance, however, she'-began to feel confused, to fenr that she had taken;a
wrong turning, and might do so again,
Ihus^setting hopelessly lost, unless she
-should���enquire-of-people���whom-she-
mlght meet on the way to Salt street.
-But Mrs. Purdy had warned hei
against the risk of making enquiries,
if possible to avoid It, as a search for
her would.certainly be instituted-by
the person she most wished 'to avoid.
He would very likely^ employ detectives, and someone might remember
having been accosted on that night at
such and such an hour by a veiled wo-
man with the voice of a lady, asking
"to be directed to Salt' street. So "a
clover detective might.be put upon her
track, and Mrs.-Tliiitdy-tvas as anxious
to avoid such a'mischance as Winifred
eo,uld be;:'for,the lies she .must.tell at,
the theater would put her" in a pecu-"
liar position if they should be found
out. Mrs. Purdy had been at the Thespian Theater as dresser xsince it" had
-been built 'a few years ago,' and- she ���
did not wish to lose her-place. . , -
' Suddenly Winifred heard the ilively
tmusie of a banjo. A man's voice was
singing a dark'oy song. Not one of tho
songs known in 'London's music-hall's
as "genoiine plantation ditties" warbled
by shapely young ladles In broad white
collars, knlckeibockers, and silk stockings, attended by black-faced "pickaninnies;" but the real thing, Invented
by Southern darkies for darkies���senseless, tuneful, contagious of mirth. It,
was that quaint bit of Kentucky, gib-,
berish known "as "Homo-made Chicken-Pie" and the people who had crowded round the singer to listen'were
laughing and patting their foet, some
of them joining In the chorus.
They wore collected at a well-lighted
���=tieet corner, and AVinlfred had begun
to wish that she could find a quieter'
thoroughfare when the song came to
an end. -   '
"Give us 'Linger Longer, Loo,' " suggested someone.
"Can't, thank you. Shop's shut up for
to-night," laughed tho man who had
'icon singing, with a slightly American
accent, which might or might not be
affected. Something In the voice
caused Winifred to pause at a distance outMde the radius of the nearest
lamp, and tiy to obtain a glimpse of
the speaker. 'lie" was tall; and'wore ft.
black mask, which lompletely hid his
race; but Wlnlfiod v.as sure that she

Iter. M*. Crowe Compares Some Am-,

The Rev. W. S. Crowe of the Chuicli
of the Eternal Hope, We-t Eighty-fn^t
meet. New Yoik, pie.u-l.ed List Sunday on the. subject: ' Why I Lika
Araj.'-Ica BetUr." The seir-ion embodied a series of comparl.oim of foreiju
national life with that of America. Mr,
Crowe has spent the past three months
in Europe.   He "said In part:
"This-is an age of fault flndcis opposed to nattonal ambitions, of thos^
v,ho sigh for 'the good old times,' and
r,;cm to believe that the last days have
come and that politics, religion md
1 iucss are going down hill. My pui-
P'.-r-e this morning is to measure a few
nome things which we are in the habit
of oiitlcising, with things'- in other
counti les. Let me speak fist of Amii'i-
cin and other neuspap.is. I luai.l
the president of one ot our great um-'
vers,ties, not long ago, s=ay that the
coi'.rtry was being hulled into a-poi.i-
cul and moral abyss bv the sensatUnil
lies of the American press. You wi 1
appreciate the worth of Amfi,lc~.n
ns vspapers when you have sli uggleJ.
with what they call newspapers vi
other countries. They have not leam-
el abroad to procure news.' All summer the British and Continental pi<.:,a
quoted the latest Chinese .woid frori
the American press. The Americans
live all over the, earth; the people of
other countries have only a local haul;-
tation. Our newspapers have tiain <l
us to cosmopolitan habits of thought.
They waken our minds, and mutuij
awakening means moral awakening.
"A word on politics In America niyl
elsewhere. We are in danger of beco.1'1-
Ing blind to the virtues of Am:ric'.n
politics. There is no greater danger-un-'
our country than the wid.spiead'-strs-
piclon of every one in office. Our
modern presidential campaigns are unspeakably cleaner than a political cam- ,
paign anywhere else. It'Is the buslnisj
of our politicians to take up an iss 10
and make ithe people familiar with it.
They teach the meaning of money,
trusts and business combinations. In
England a campaign means.vitupeia-.
tlon. Here are some headings copi-��J
from- prominent English political "papers: "That Old Hypocrite, Salisbury;'
'The Villains of the Rosebery gang:''
'Chamberlain's Lies, Old and New." T
felt that I had, stepped ,into a higlv:r
civilization when 'I saw in this country
political foes treating each, other with
personal respect. A political campaign
in France or Italy is'a thing for 1110.-
tals to'blush at and'for angels to weep
ov er.
"As to American and foreign morality: Here it is 'the unwritten l.iw
among the humbler classes that women
who are otherwise respectable shall not
frequent the saloon. Abroad that bar-*
rier is broken down; the lower classes
in the cities are debauched drunkards,'
repulsive in appearance. Here they aie
healthful in looks and apparently decent. The problem with us is to kerp
American mothers, of every class,
healthy, intelligent, and pure.

me: "This is ' true ef Paris���it Is tho

A few hours later some friends of tho

WELL  MERITED  GROWTH.
Among the publications that came
to our exchange desk this week is
that little annual messenger, Dodd's
Almanac, published by The Dodd's
Medicine Co.. Limited. This is its
eighth annual appearance, and Its
growth in the estimation ot the public is attested by the fact that i��
the eight years oi its life its circulation has grown from thousands to
many millions, and that-it is now
printed in - "many languages and is
Xouniirin"' almost every English-speaking home as well as in nearly every
quarter of the civilized world.
Dodd's Almanac differs somewhat
from other publications of. the kind
in that it is filled from- cover to cover with useful information. The data,
weather indications, etc., are prepared by expert scientists and have established a . reputation foi accuracy,
while the antiquated joke that " has
made the ordinary almanac a bye-
word is banished from its coulmns,
���which are filled instead with simple
straightforward talks on the rules of
health and interesting accounts of
some of the various cures^that have
been accomplished by Dodd's)Kidney
Pills and Dodd's DyspepsA Tablets.
And it might be remarked "inhere
that people.who are prone to ovcC?
look such reading simply because the
cures are the work of what they call
a proprietary medicine, devote much
of their time to gorging their minds
with less, interesting, less wonderful
and far less truthful matter. This is
simply another exemplification of the
general tendency to dodge tliat which
is useful in the way of reading matter." ^
' But aside from its value as a book
of reference to the healthy and sick
alike.Dodd's Almanac is a wonderful
evidence of" how an enterprise will
flourish when it is founded on merit.
As the circulation of -Dodd's Alman-
ae has grown from thousands to millions, so has the domain- of Dodd's
Kidney Pills extended. Eleven years
ago they were placed on''the market
in Tonjnto, "after, years spent in the
lnvestigationVof Kidney 'Disease , and
its cure had led 'to their discoverv.
They had their own way to make,
and they made it.' As one man. 'or
woman was benefited bj" them he, or
she'.told another. 'Their, fame , has"
spread--till it ^ers one continent
and has made inroads into every civilized country in the world, and .The
Dodtls Medicine. Company has grown
into one of^th��- iaigest- concerns of
its kind, and we might even say one
of the-largest influences for good on
the American continent. And all this
immense structure has been built by
the* hands of those whom Dodd's
Kidney, Pills have raised from beds of
sickness and suffering. Eadi one told
others. That is the secret oi it all.
- 13u't it is not the intention here
to go 'into 1 the theories on which
the Dodd's Remedies work nor mention, any of the wonderful cures they
have accomplished. Those are now
almost-common knowledge, for, like
Dodd's "Almanac, Dodd's Kidney Pills
and,'Dodd's" Dyspepsia Tablets, have
found their way into every community and into almost every home. The
intention is to simply welcome Dodd's
Almanac^^.1003 and to commend it
to the consideration or the public
generally-.
A Great Blessing.
Just'say "It's a great blessing" to
Gov. Wells when you meet him and seo
liiin Binile, says The Salt Lake Herald.
It happened in this way :���The Governor was feeling particularly happy and
sociable when Surveyor-llcuVrul Ander-
"son~cirmc~aiong"last Saturday and-atart-
cd the conversation.
"Well,"  remarked   the  Surveyor-ocn-
era!, "it's come at last." "*
,   "Yes," responded 'the   Governor, with
liis most expansile, smile, "it's come."
"It's a great bitssinj;, i->n't it ?'���' continued Mr. AndereoiC with the air of.a
man who knows whc.eof lie speaks.
"Is it!" said the Governor, with some
perplexity.    "Well, 1  -.liould  say it is."
"-And it's a line thins for the farmers,
too," asserted the land man.
Then a great liplil d.ivrned upon tho

���   THE FIMGEn NAILS.
Long naiij, never indicate such great
physical strength as short, broad one'.
Very long finger-nailed persons ar��
apt to have delicate chests and lungs^
Long- nails very wide at the top1
and bluifh" in appearance -denote badE
c.iculauon. Long-nailed men 'and
v, onion are less critical and more impressionable than those with, short
na-ls.
Long nails indicate ideality and aif-
aitistic temperament.
Long-nailed people are very apt to
he visionary and hate to face disagree.,
able facts.
-They :udge even themselves severe- ,
Short-nailed women never give up
"an argument.
'   A keen sense of humor accompanies
short nails.
Short-nailed    persons    make    good ,
critics;   they  are  sharper and    mor��
logical than long-nailed ind v.duals.
Short nails, thin and flat at tho
tise. Indicate a. weak action ot th*
heart.
Short nails very fiat and sunken, ����- -
It were, into the flesh at the base ar��.-,
a sign ot diseased nerves. , .   '
Short nails very flat ��nd inclined,to-
curve out or lift up at the edges are '
the forerunners of paralysis.
Don't scoff at the Idea that pressina ���"
the ends" of the fingers    gently    will  ,
make them assume the shape of J.h��
nails, for it is a fact.
Don't use nail bleaches too generously, and don't fall to he stingy of
rogue and powder. Let your nails' be
beautiful, with no visible signs of the
iranicurlng that keeps tbem pink"ar.#-i
lovely.
Don't fancy that the tiny whit*'

Thursday. January 3. 1903.  Disease is Still Coming.  The United- States Senate is taking  further steps to exclude diseased iin-  migrants from Uncle Sam's domain.  An exhaustive enquiry, conducted by  ������������������* special Senate committee, adduced  . that 60; per cent of the undesirable  immigrants destined -for the United  States enter at'Canadian ports. His  also Shown that only one-tenth <if one  per cent of diseased foreigners attempt  to land at American ports. At tlie  Canadian frontier, the United States  employs an efficient corps of officials  to repel undesirable* attempting to  secure illegal entry to that country.  Stringent as the laws have been in the  past, they are to be enfoiced with still  greater rigor. Thus, the danger of  Canada being made the dumping  ground for American rejected foreigners is increased.  Jn the large cities of Canada, loathsome eye and scalp diseases have been  firmly established by the refuse population of Central Europe. The Canadian government was repeatedly asked  to put a stop to the fret^entry of  affected persons, hut Hon. Clifford  Sifton, persistently refused to intervene, urging that the abuses com  plained of existed only in the minds of  tho complainants. The situation  became so acute, however, that the  Minister of the Interior was forced to  appoint a medical superintendent of  immigration, and station examining  officers at the principal ports.  But the new system is quite inadequate, if we are to judge by the reports  of the  United   States  officials, who  _wot;t_side by side with the Canadian  officers.  Mr. Robert Watchorn, the chief of  the American Immigration bureau in  Canadu. in a recent interview, stated  that, "the Canadiar government is  still too generous in admitting Europeans to this country." And then he  cites numerous instances of diseased  persons being admitted at our lending  poits  Perhaps the best explanation o the  weakness of the Canadian system is to  be found in the orders issued to our  officers by the Interior Department.  Even after rejection of an immigrant  by a United States official, a Canadian  detention agent may grant a permit to  land.  Jn this policy is found reasons for  the presence in Montreal of a United  States bound colony of foreigners,  equal to 25 per cent of the total Canadian immigration. Scores of these  people apply each day to the United  States bureau for certificates, which  will guarantee them entry to United  States territory. The majority of  candidates are pronounced to be  suffering from contagious diseases of  a disgusting type, and Canada will  reap the awful harvest their very  presence invites.  This most regrettable situation costs  Canada half a million dollars annually.  High salaried officers are maintained  abroad to scour Europe tor settlers.  A vicious system of bonusing augments  the evil. Quantity and not quality is  demanded, and the populating of our  cities with disease is the natural  outcome.  It would be invidious to waste words  in condemnation ot this outrage on  Canadians'.     The strongest argument  against the insane course pursued by  the Minister of the Interior is to lie  found in the attitudes the United  States and Canada have assumed  towards it. With years of experience  to justify them, the Americans ait-  spendii.g hundreds of thousands of  dollars to avert the very disasters that  Canada showers forth millions to  encourage. Our policy is self-con  demnatory, and cannot tie changed  too quickly. Reckless toleration  towards immigration is not the least  of the sins of the Laurier government.

DEPEW  ... recently visited Monte Carlo on  his wedding Journey, and watched  Lord Itostlyn attempt to break. the  bank. "Everybody," he says, "la laugh -  ing at the earl's ao-called ������y������tem., Me  announced In England that he had an  Infallible system, and only needed $50,-  000'to make it go. People tumbled ov������.-  each other to give him the money. ,He  began playing with thousand-franc  notes. "When I left he was playing  with five-franc pieces. I was told that  all but about $6,000 of the 160,000 was'  gone. There is no such thing as breaking the bank at Monte Carlo. A nia:i  who has lived in the plac������ merely as *  resident for years told me the gambling-house paid returns as regular a*  dividends on the .New York Central  Railroad. I suppose there are ten roulette-tables, and each table U a bauk  with a capital of $120,000. If you win  all its capital that particular table  closes for the day to get a change Of  luck. That la all th* bank-breaklni-  there Is. You .would have to go through  all the other tabl'is���������roulette, rouge-ct-  nolr, and trentej-.et^gjiarinje ��������� before  you close up the concern, and there are  several of each. They are a dismal;  looking lot���������the players. I never saw  one of them smile, and the winners  looked as miserable a* the losers. Nobody gets away with any money, no  matter how much he- wins. At least It  la very. rar������. I saw on* man begin  with a thousand-franc note���������$209. He  played aad won���������doubled his money;  played, and won again, and agala  doubled. He kept on until he had won  about $24,000. Then he started resolutely to go out. At the door he stopped,  hesitated, and turned back. He sauntered over to the table, and looked en  at the game for a while. Then he buttoned up his coat again, with great  decision, and started out with a firm  stride. But he could not ��������� positively  could not get through the door. The  last I saw of him he was playing away  again, and the $14,000 was going pell-  mell back Into th*g-ambling-hou������e corV  fere. I did see one man, however, win  and go away with hU money. Ha wai  a very rich man, as I happened to  know, and Just played for fun, not earing whether he won or not. He had  astonishing luck. The same number  came up five times In succession���������an  unusual thing. It made a great sensation in the room, and people gathered  about. At the fifth turn of the number he swiped in everything from tbe  table, and poked away the wade ef  French banknotes Into hie pockets  right and left. He won about $������,0M In  s very few moments."  Henry Thomas Buckie's thoughts ana  conversation were always on a high  level. Once he remarked: "Men and  women range themselves Into three  classes, or orders, of intelligence; you  can tell the lowest class by their habit  of always talking about persons: the)  next by the fact that their habit Is always to converse about things; the  highest by their preference for the discussion of Ideas."

Money and Dreams.  He settled himself lit his roomy chair  In hit big-, old house, where he had  lived ao lone that the city had grown  up away and beyond him, leaving  the house, which had been In a  fashionable neighborhood, so far  down town that there; was little  more than the hum of business to'  be heard all day around It. The uid  man's housekeeper brought him a =001  drink, and one of his nephews came  In to enquire how he had stood Llie  unusual heat of the day.  v He had ao many nephews and nieces  to look after his comfort. Some ever,  stayed in town all summer to be near  him. When they tried to persuade him  to ro away tor a little rest In the hut  ���������weather he would aay:  1 "Rest! Who wants rest? If you let  money rest it rusts���������rusts! Turn It  over; keep turning it over; It grows. It  stows!" And he would .add that 'th������  summer waa the beat, .time of all for  work.' The old financier was-the possessor of many millions. But he walked  -Olone. Uhla evening he sat In the twilight which settled itself hot and thick  about him. The night was bringing nj  cooling breath. The roar of the metropolis was dying away In tired sobs  outside. The city's life seemed sapped  with the heat. Even the old man, who  never stopped his work for anything,  - realized that it was unusually hot to-  , night. He fanned himself with Ins  newspaper and took a sip from the  glass which stood near him on the table.  He closed his eyes. He felt such a  'strange sense of oppression. No, he  was not- dlezy. It had passed. He  opened his eyes and put up his hand to  unfasten his collar. At his neck he  feuched a-twisted cord of silk that was  ound it. ..He pulled at the cord and  "drew.1 out its length. From It hung a  ring���������ft silver-ring���������old-fashioned ami  'worn, and on it two raised hearts ly-  Ing^ against .each other and rubbed  smooth by time.  He  sat  now  with  his, eyes  closed  'again,and bis hand folded over  the  ring on his breast.   He dreamed once  "more,, and it was his-last dream.   It  'w������b summer���������yes���������but-It.was  nearlj  ���������,; fifty years ago.   The dust and roar of  the city gave -way  to:- the -scent and  : quiet of an old garden;, the heat to the  j dew of a country evening.

Then they kissed each  . other, and the girl fell to sobbing, with  .her arms about,her compflilon's neck,  ���������and he spoke:  '_ "Never mind, dear; Annie,, dear.   1  - am going away to make a fortune, and  -"I'm coming back for you, and,we. will  ;be married, and I'will take you away  'to the city, and you will be rich ano  have everything you want."  ,     "Bat I don't like the city.

I hired  i cozy little, ofhee in a building iilled  " with scores of prominent law flrmb.  After arranging my well-Btocked library, I nailed up my new sign among  the rest and waited for my clients to  appear. It soon became a sad trial ol  .patience.  Among the many brilliant lights oi  the day my own name passed unnoticed.  -Day   after   day.   and   month   after  Xmonth, I attended the courts or pass-  ���������; sd the    time in    pursuing   celebrated  ~-L-~ eases.    Like Micaw'rer. I was waiting  ���������Tor something to turn up.    The small  capi;:'.! v.-iih which  I had started was  dwicil ing  away at  an  alarming pace  .'��������� "and. a3 yet, I saw r.o prospective fee.  One     pleasant     afternoon     Stanlej  Ferris, a young lawyer, who, like my-  . self, was unwillingly idle, dropped in  to see me.  ���������������������������;  "What news, Jack " he asked care-  "Same as usual." I replied, despond-  ������ntly. "I've a notion to pack off in the  wilderness for a few weeks. Everybody is out of town, and there is little prospect of picking up a fee until  they return." '       . Ji  " ' My friend was about to reply, -when  ��������� there came a low rap at the door.  As the door opened my heart gave  "a ���������'great bound.    I felt that my long-  -'tooked-for client had  arrived at  last  ���������"i&t a single glance I took in all the details of my visitor's appearance.    Ho  .was a middle    aged man, dressed    in  'platn  costume,  and  with a seemlnglj  .. food  catured  face.    Most  men  would  iia-ve eet him down at once as a jolly,  cpen-bearted individual; but I did not  '���������{Sty constant attendance at the courts  kz&   taught    me   much.     There   was  something underlying  his  only  smile  caod obsequious manner that made tns  distrust him.  "Is this Mr. BurnB?" he asked  blandly. I     ���������  .1 bowed in th& affirmative, and re-  jiested him to >c seated. Stanley lefl  lie room at that moment, aud thi  Jfcraugcr continued:  "My name is Brown, sir,���������Martin  SBro'P'3. I have called upon you In a  ^iase of emers.?n<.y."  ���������"In -what way can I be of service?"  Z asked.  "My friend, who ie In a dying condition, wlsties you to draw up a will  'it once."  1 seized my hat and hurriedly followed my visitor. In the elegantly  furnished room of a hotel wo found  ;he man.  Owing to the heavily darkened room,  j .could distinguish nothing of his features. He lay with his face turned to-  -������rard tbe wall, and In feeble tone*  aictated tbe terms of the will, as J  Ircw it up.  ;i accomplished my task to his sat-  1 fefaction. nnd placed the document  icforr: h; rr.to sign. A������ he did no I  jotlcr d n cl-cp red senr running .-icroFE  !hc !.;i:-l; of hi.-, baud. The whole ol  the <Iy''. ^r rami's property���������an immense  too, l.y the way���������was left to his dcat  fciecd, Martin Browsu  '" 'Ae T left the house" the smiling Mr.  Brown handed me my fee. It was a  beggarly amount���������the more so trorr.  tha fact Mr. Brown was soon to become wealthy. The' man's wily smile  too, while' his friend lay at the point  of death sickened me, aud I was glad  to hurry away. On my return I met  Stanley, and in answer to his inquiries I related the circumstances.  "A beggarly miser," he exclaimed  indignantly, "I'd never believe it  from his appearance."  It was nearly a week afterward  that a young lady, dressed in deer,  mourning, called upon me. This  time 1 had a" case In reality. She w-as  not more than twenty, but her beautiful face bore the Impress of grief. In  a few words she stated her business,  retaining the names until she had  heard my opinion.  Her story was as follows:  Three weeks before her, uncle had  left home in company with a man he  called his friend. While in the city  he had been taken suddenly ill and  died. She had received no information ot the fact until after her relative was buried.  Then came the strangest part of the  story.  Two years before her uncle had  made a will, making her, his only living relative, his sole heiress.  On her arrival in the city, however,  she had been shown a will drawn by  her uncle on his death-bed,-in which  he left hls'Qentire property' to hUs  friend.  She could conceive of no reason for  such a strange act, and, distrusting  the friend, had sought out a lawyer  Luckily she was unacquainted with  the names of our distinguished lawyers. My glaring gold sign had been  the first fo. catch her eye, and so she  called upon me. . ��������� :���������-.  "The case,v certainly looks .;suspicious," I remarked. "I think I will be  able to make a fight in your behalf  Now, will you kindly furnish me with  the names of these parties?"  "My uncle, sir, was Andrew Thur-  ber. His friend calls himself Martin  Brown."  Iuvoluntarily my pen dropped from  my surprised fingers.. It was the very  will I had drawn up myself.  She turned pale    as I    related    the  circumstances anil arcee to leave.;> Wi  "I see I have made a very awkward  mistake by calling    upon    you,"    she  ���������said, sadly.  "Wait one moment," I replied,  quickly. "This 'Martin Brown is a total stranger to me. If he has been  engaged in an act of villainy I shall  not shield him."  We. entered into a close conversation, at the end of .which I said, confidently:  "Leave tbe case fo me. If I fall it  shall be through no fault of mine."  She accepted my offer with thanks  and left me, thinking deeply.  .During the,interview I bad learned  that the deceased had no scar' upon  his right hand. Now. certain of vill-  aiuly, I set to work diligently to find  It out.  Working cautiously. I found the man  who had laid the body out for burial.  From him I learned that h.e had performed lite task on the morning ot  June 23, just ten hours beroro I. was  called upon to draw up the will, 'i'be  will bad already been ofCered for pio-  bate, so there was no time to be lost.  Andrew Thurber's body was disinterred and the contents oC the stomach  analyzed. It was found tD contain  poison.  By some" means the sly wretch got  wind of my movements and attempted  to fly. At that moment the detectives  seized him. Confronted by the ternt?le  proofs, he made a-full confession.  Before his trial came oil he ended  his life by swallowing n quantity of.  tbe same deadly poison with which he  ha(l-kllled"hls^victim^=  - ^^^.

Something still more important happened to me from my connection with  the case. I wooed and won tbe beautiful girl for my wife. As Stanley  Ferris remarked afterward, I "gained  fame and fortune with  a rush."  Pretty KxpcrlniBntii,  There arme many tricks and experiments that can'be performed by boys  and girls without the aid of expensive  or intricate apparatus. Here are lwo  good ones which fulfill this condition  and one well worth trying: How many  of you know that lads, lasses and lucl-  fers 'have likes and dislikes in common? The average boy would prefer  a sweetmeat to a bath at any time,  and, strange to say, a common 'luci-  fer match has the same fastidious  taste. If you want to test this curious  quality get a basin of water and arrange a number of matches! on the surface In the form ot a star.  When the match heads are all nicely together in the centre of the basin  touch the water with a piece of scup.  Like a'little boy they will run away  from It as fast as they I can. The  matches will make for the side of Lhe  basin without, the 'least posi'iirt delay.  Now take out the oap and touch t.hr  ���������water with a piece of sugar .mi yoc  ���������will see 'a strange srght. All the  matches will return to the (centre ojj  the basin, and appear to feed on the  sugar with the greatest'avidity.  GRAINS OFSENSE  It is one of the easiest things In tho  ���������world to    economically   lay out   tae  money you never will hare.  Women would never do for soldier*.  tfhey would change thelT uniforms every few days, and' would never grow  old enougk to be placed on the retire!  list.  The newspapers are for erer speaking of "the blushing bride." Well,'  when you reflect upon theiklnd of husband not a-few of the brides marry,"  you cannot wonder that they ehojlj,  blush.

Unluckily, however,  her own boat had not come, so she  oad ventured to ask If, In case he was  not using it, Mr. Snively would be so  kind as to lend her his yawl, it being  Impossible to hire one in the village.  Mr. Snively v.-ns delighted. Mrs,  Tracy was a pretty widow of uncertain ago but no uncertain charm, who  had taken tho cottage next to the eti-  Itor'fi own some six months before.  tri the course of a rather desultory acquaintance the gonial bachelor, whoso  ideas of tho fair wr. v/crc those common to hl������'kind,-bud'discovered.that  hlfl fair neighbor . was .a cheery Utile  body ot sound political views and excellent literary tastes (from the first  lhe had been n prompt and paying subscriber to tho Monitor), but beyond  that hla Imagination hud not soared.'  Now, however, behold the pretty wKl-  ow Invested with a wholly new lntor-  siit.   She was fond of fishing!

'���������  "Oh, well, then I suppose it's a  crime to even guess." And once more  tho editor sighed'as he glanced out at  the sparkling waters.  "But you've been so kind," exclaimed the widow, noting the sigh and immediately filled with compunction, yit  Ecems ungracious of me to keep it from  lyou who love so to fish." And then'  as -she saw him give another wistful  glance bayward she burst out impulsively: "Promise not to betray me  and I'll tell you���������It's Patchang Lake!"  'Patchang!" cried Mr. Snively in ������uS  pitlae. "Why, I never heard of a fish  down there in my life."  "That's the charm of it,'.' she rejoin-  ed gleefully," "and the man who told  me about It (such a dear, dirty, old  fisherman he was) was fearfully afraid  * Borne One else would find it out; bo  don't betray me." And she hurried  away with a parting smile that made  the dusty ' oflce seem duller than  tvier when he got back to it and reluctantly commenced setting up His  editorials, for Mr. Snively constituted  the whole working force of Che Mini-'  tor., i  And his task, too, seemed harder  than ever,. after the interruption.  Thoughts of his pretty visitor Kept  intruding themselves into the midst ot  his most impassioned apeals to the  voters of Meiooglc.  How blue here eyes were and what  bewitching little ring:i of hair the wind  had blown up untter the big hat.  And then the fishing.  The editor of the Monitor shook his  head.    Could it ,be possible any man  d|lving could have a soul so lost to.  Ihonor as to'play a Joke on a woman  who looked like that.? It seemed impossible and yet Mr. Snively  was as'  sure<there wasn't a fish within a mile  of Patchang as be   was   that   there  wasn't a free silver man in Meloogic.  Perhaps then Mrs. Track was sitting  In that yawl vainly waiting for the  hite he felt certain she wouldn't get  If , she sat theretill the United,States  "got an honest government. And lie  was actually staying at-home and deliberately abandonintr a friend to such  a fate!  As this agonizing thought occurred  to Mr. Snively he dropped his type  and started for the^door. But once  there die paused and" slowly returned  to his form, only to find it more and  more impossible to keep his mind on  his work.       | ~      '-stijMU  At last he gave up In despair.  .

Charles I. is on record as having, while at Oxford, sent a  request to the library, for the loan of a  volume, the request being endorsed by  the Vice-Chancellor of the university.  Thereupon the libiarian went to tht  King and showed him the statutes,  "which, being read, the King would not  have the book, saying that it was fit  that the will and statutes of the founder should be religiously obscr-, ed."

Two Young Men.  Once on a Time there were Two Young  Men, each of whom Bought an Automobile, says Carolyn Wells in Tho Smart  Set.  One Young Man, beirg of a Bold and  Audacious nature, said :���������  "1 will make my Machine go. Fast,  that I. will break all Previous Records."  Accordingly, -he did so, and he Flew  through the Small Towns like a Red  Dragon Pursuing his Trey.  Unheeding all Obstacles in his Mad  Career, his Automobile ran into a Wall  of Rock, and was dashed to Pieces.  Also, the Young Man was killed.  -The Oilier Young Man. being of  Timorous and Caicful Disposition, started off with great Caution, and Rode ni  a Slow Pace, pausing now, nnd then,  Lest he might Run into Something.  The Result was that T'n'o Automobile  and an-Ico Wngsor. r.tn into him ft "in  populal ion,  al- J behindfspotiing    his    Car    and    Killing the Cautious Young Man.  Morals:���������This Fable  leaches Us,  The  More Haste The Less Speed, and Delay  Are Dangerous.  What Could Hanna Tell ?  Walter Wellman, a well-known United States journalist,, in an article in  Collier's Weekly, says:���������"'J he operators  gave out some statements to the New  Yoik newspapers In which they declared  tho Civic Federation had done more  harm than good in the strike, and intimating Hint-Mr. Hanna would do better not to nii-c politics with labor qu s-  lions. Hanna wns indignant, lie callcj  up Geoigc W. Perkins, forking told  JI.-iiiiiiv_not_lo_jiiiiHl^vJmt_J.hc_rniluad  Presidents were baying���������to let it pas>,'  'But I do mind, and I won't let it pass,'  replied llnnnn. 'Poikins, 1 want to serve  notice on these men, through you, that  if I ever see another lin/> like that in the  papers coming from them I will go t������  New York, call amccLing of labor piopli  at Cooper Union, nnd I'll give the full  hislory of this coal strike. Vou know  what that means.' Air. Perkins pas-ed  the word on toj-he Presidents, and they  havo not uttered a word in criticism ol  Hanna or the Civic Federation si-.cc."  Wellmun wrote this just before th������  strike was settled, and while Hinna him-  in.    "So 'you  arc  making Sir  Henrys   .SG][ wj, striving to bring ab-,ut an un  wigs, are you?'' he asked sharply,     lo.s, j dcrstanding.   It'has not been lost sight  sir, sometimes."    "I suppose you h.iro      -   ���������  one,in there now," pointing to the bos.  "Let mc sec it."   The wig was produced.  "So you call    that  a wig,  do   'you?"  sneered   the irritated   wig-maker.'  "Do  you mean  to tell mo tli.it you believe  that thing looks like a wig?"   "No, s r,  I don't!" retorted the nettled sev>ant.'  "1 mean to sny as it looks likc,the''air  of the 'uman 'end."  A New Ear.  Surgeons ut the Presbyterian Hospital, Philadelphia, me much gratified  over the success of the opeinlion performed on Alexander Hammond, by  which the latter was piovidcd with a  jicw ear. The mnn hns just returned  to his home in Malvoin, Penn,, well  satisfied with modem surgery.  Hammond had his left car frozen  about four years ago. A cnncciotm  growth developed, and three weeks ago  ho was sent by his family physician, Dr.  Cm lis, to *ho Picsbyfcrian Hospital.  Tlio car was amputated, leaving only a  stump.  Dr. Henry AVhitrton of the hospital  stair then made an incision back of the  car slump nnd lifted up a flap of skin  in the shape of a peninsula, with the  conneel'on just a'fc the Toot of the car.  The flap was-then-moulded in to the  fihapo ot an car and hewed up to place.  of, however, and several newspaper*  across the line arc suggesting that much  might be forgiven if Mr. Hanna told tho  whole story anyway. Some of them regret that the operntors did not adopt  towards him that lofty air of patronizing condescension which invariably chir-  actoris-cd-'tlieir dealings with Mr. Mitchell,- In which case there is litt'e doubt  that Mr. Hanna would not have displayed the same skilful, shrewd,-and in the  end triumphant, tactics of the strike  leader. His methods might in the end  have been successful, but they would  have been more ponderous, and rough���������  very rough. The operators are to be  blamed for not giving Hanna an opportunity to tell nil he knows, and he knowt  a lot evidently.  t~-t-. -���������IT ���������    '  Oh, may I write a verse to you.
