Feb. 21.���������As a  result of a head-on collision between a  westbound pnssengei train and an  eiislhound freight train, hist night,  four mail clerks were burned to dealh  and several train men weie more or  less seriously hint. All the injured  are in a hospital in Cleveland. Il is  repotted that no passengers were hurl.  The passenger train was well filled  and many of the passengers were  stlionl superintendents and teachers  on their way tu Cincinnati to attend a  in-veling of school directors and  teachers|in that city. The unfoitn  nate mail clerks were caught like rats  in a trap within their car when it  caught fire, and being locked in, were  unable to release themselves.  The scene of the wieck is but a few  miles west of the city of Cleveland,  and relief was started outtiminediately  on hearing of the wreck, from this  city. The injuries to the train crews  consisted mostly of cuts and bruises,  and are not considered serious. All  but two of the cars of the passenger  train were destroyed by a .fire which  probably started from the overturning  and explosion of oil lamps in the  express and mail cars.  Wedding Bells.

We  expect to have more money, if the  retjuest for greater assistance for this  province is granted, and if ihat is so,  why of course, it would alfect the lay- j  ing out ol' appropriations."  P.

Thc majority was  ���������mall, but its mandate Is to be immediately acted upon.    The   vote  was not  the result of a wave of reform or a persistent  agitation   against   the   barroom,  but was taken because of the offer of a  railway company.    An exchange recording   tlie   circumstances     says:���������"Collinwood is not only  the home    of    many  Clcvelaiulers, but  thc site of the shops  of tho Lake Shore & Michigan Southern  ltailroad.    This  corporation   has  under  way   improvements    amounting   to  ���������?-.,-  000,000. The corporation announced that  it would invest an additional $1,000,000  in building homes which would be sold  to employees ut cost if  the dramshops  ���������were driven  out  of the  suburb.      The  ���������presumption   is   that thc rnilrond company had  found  that the presence    of  tho saloons and dramshops was a menace to its interests, that they decreased  the reliability of its employees and exerted a    demoralizing    influence    upon  them. Thus, while the railroad company  was actuated by motives of sclf-intorest  it at the same time    emphasized    tho  premium  that is put upon  9obriety  in  this  department of industrial  nctivity.  The  election also  illustrated the effectiveness   of   woman's   influence   exerted  upon voters  when a moral  principle is  at stake.    The majority against the saloons was  not large, but it    was    big  enough to wipe them out for a year and  to secure for thc  suburb the    million-  dollar prize offered by thc Lake Shore  Eoad.  Major Glenn's Actions.  Women Song Writers.  At a lecture recently delivered in a  Scotch town on the subject "Women  Song Writers," Mr. Joseph Wright said  that "Ower the Muir Amang the Heather" wns .written by the daughter of a  Scottish weaver, who married a strobing player, and became the best actor  and singer in his troop. A poor wandering woman who died in Greenock  poorhouse, and was buried in a nameless  grave, wrote " There's Nile Luck Aboot  the Hoose"; her name was-Jean Adam;  and "Ca the Yowes to the Knowes" was  written by Isobel Pagan, who kept a  small alehouse by the wayside, and frequently sang this and others of her  songs as a means of subsistence.  The Cruelties of Nations.  Whenever American criticism of any  foreign nation becomes especially severe  on the score of'inhumane conduct we  are very apt to hear something about  the lynching of negroes, says The Chicago Itecord-Kerald. Spaniards and Filipinos .have made use of this retort, it  might be employed by the Grand Turk  himself, and-a .German paper-incorporates it in a reply to Ambassador White's  comment on Itoumania's treatment ol  the Jews. 'So far as the .lews themselves are concerned, the reply is irrelevant, for it is clear: that the ill-treat*:  ment of negroes in this country-does .not  justify the ill-treatment of any race  elsewhere, hut theic is a certain just.iee  in the rebuke to our national self-righteousness. We are inclined to . sec thc  faults of other nations all expanded to  the largest dimensions, and -to-, discuss  theni in terms of immense superiority  if not of absolute perfection. Yet it  is true that no ether nation in the  world has such a disgraceful antl hi Icons  record as wc in thi-* matter of lynching*. Putting aside the question of the  political rights of the negroes, which  might be the subject of satire at our  expense, this grave national cri nn stands  out with a terrible distinctness that  might lead foreigner-! to conclude quite  naturally that civil li'-crty. and slf-gnv-  ernment were a farce lire, antl that our  boasted iusitution's were a failure. The  German . paper' certainly hail reason  enough for its Scriptural rcfeicn.e to  the mote and the beam.  Major Glenn of thc 5th United States  Infantry was tried by court-martial at  Manila Inst May for administering the  "water cure" to natives during the Sa-  mav   campaign,   and   was  found   guilty  and sentenced to one month's suspension  of  duty  and a  lino  of ?50.    President  Koosevelt approved the findings of tho  court.    Major  Glenn  returned  to  duty  In September, and is now to be tried by  a court-martial on the ch.irgc that lie  unlawfully and wilfully killed seven prisoners of war.    The gallant Major docs  uot deny that ho ordered the execution  of the Pilipinos, but claims that he was  justified by the ortlers of liis superiors.  Generals  Chalice and Smith are  to  bo  summoned    from    the    United - States.  This second charge against the Major is  ���������due   to   the  evidence  collected   by  tho  Anti-Imperialists'      Committee,     'which  some time ago, having failed to arouse  tho authorities in any other way, addressed an open letter, through the columns of a number of leading newspapers, to President Roosevelt.   In this tho  committee  said they were  prepared  to  prove a long list of charges of cruelty  and   conduct  unworthy   of  the   United  States army.   A number of newspapers  absolutely refused to publish the  communication ;   others  treated  it,   editorially, with  ridicule and contempt,  and  Secretary    of    War    ltoot, in a speech  shortly   afterwards    vigorously    denied  the charges.   The anti-imperialists were,  however, asked to furnish their evidence,  and in every case they have taken up  the charges have been proven, and the  offenders punished, lightly, as a rule. In  one instance charges against men of a  volunteer    regiment    were    held  to  be  proven,  but as the regiment had been  mustered   out   of   service   the   culprits  could not be reached.   The United States  Government have, in any event, a great  task in bringing and maintaining order  out of chaos in the Philippines, and it  has not  been  made  easier  by the  unnecessarily    brutal    conduct of certain  commanders and soldiers during the *c-  tive campaign.    It would be absurd, of  course, to charge that the whole army  was guilty of the atrocities which have  been brought home to a few.    But for  the sake of the army, and for the future of United States rule in the Philippines,  it   cannot   be   too   strongly  impressed  upon the people that they are  as much entitled to justice and decent  treatment as are the white men.    Britain has found this to be true in India  ������,nd other of her dependencies and protectorates.    "The white man's  burden"  entails responsibilities   and   obligations  which cannot be shirked. Even-handed  justice is one of them.  DISASTnOTJS -FLOODS.  People In O'Brien, Washington, in  Danger.  Seattle, Wash., Jan.

Her  soft, white sntiu wedding gown wns covered with chiffon, the bodice being trimmed with old Brussels luce and a full  Court train of lace ami gathered chiffon.  She wore a coronet of orange blossoms,  and a veil of old Brussels lace. The  two daughters of the bridegroom were  among the eight bridesmaids, who .were  dressed in ivory satin, with pnlc blue  sashes and large picture hats of the  same shade of blue. Premier Balfour  was the best man, and Bishop Welldon  conducted  the  marriage  ceremony.  "Governor of Gibraltar ?"  The King's birthday review at Gibraltar this year, says The London Daily  Graphic, had an additional interest in  the visit of the Governor of Algeciras  and "Gibraltar, now temporarily in the  hands of the British"���������such'is his title���������  and General Chacel, the commandant of  San Roque district. These otticers.-who  were accompanied by a brilliant staff,  lauded from a Spanish gunboat at the  Ragged Staff, wlter-" a guard of honor  and a troop of Spa- i-sh lancers awaited  them. At the palar? they were received by Sir George Vhite, V.C., and a  procession was formed to the north  front.���������-���������Uere^-sin���������haUs-w^^sanace^^-were-  drawn up 5,00*0 blue-j'iekets and marines  aud the troops of f-hc garrison, 6,000  strong.

After tho march past by  the whole body a Sta'e lunch was given  to  the visitors  at  the  palace.  Miss Terry Will Not Appear.  London, after all, says Air. T. 1*.  O'Connor in his .\l:i nly About 1'eople,  will not have the pi astue of seeing .Miss  Klleii Terry act with Sir Henry Irving  in Unite. Sir Htnry will, of coursp, produce .\1. Sardou's play during his Ornry  Lane season, but he also intends it to  be the chief attraction of his American  tour. Now thc drama, as may easily  be understood from tho subject, has not  a part of sullicient importance to tempt  Miss Terry to undergo the anxiety and  fatigue of crossing the Atlantic. She  ha.", therefore, dciin.l.cly abandoned tho  idea of appearing wilh Sir Henry in its  product inn. Playgoers, however, arc  not without cor.--.olation in the disappointment caused by her decision, since  there ore very authoritative rumors for  the statement that our most important  and popular actress w.ll shortly be seen  cither in a piece written expressly for  her, or in a series of revivals.  London Truth says :���������The mnnagcra  of the Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh, havo  been searching their hearts touching tho  propriety of accepting an offering in  thc shape of thc proceeds of a concert  given by the Sunday Society. Tho  sterner brethren were of opinion that  tho Christian religion���������apparently that  of Moses rather than that of tho Gospels���������forbade them to receive such "unholy gains," even as trustees for the  Hick and thc poor. However, after somo  diBcussion the meeting decided "to defer action until the check had been ro-  cei-ved."   Very. Scotch I  How She Stays Youthful.  Parisian newspapers have again been  Interviewing a number of well-known  French actresses . on the question of  their retention of youthful looks and  s contemporary thus deals with the results :���������-' - :���������  That marvellous woman, Sarah Bernhardt, celebrated her fifty-seventh  birthday a few weeks ago. Her incomparable physical strength and the  youthful appearance of many other  hard-worked-French actresBe caused an  intrepid reporter some little time ago  to procure interviews with the various  ladies and learn their different methods  of caring for their health and beauty.  This is the result : Mme. Bernhardt  almost always drives in a closed carriage to and from the theatre, where  she works eleven or twelve hours every  day, "without ever seeing the light of  the sun, and without a breath of fresh  air."  A simple diet of fish and eggs suffices,  principally the latter, of which she  sometimes cats as winy as ten a day.  She never drinks anything but champagne. Two months of the year she  spends at Belle Isle, her seaside residence, and durinc that lime sac is seldom indoors. \Vhen she is, every window in the house is open, no matter  how inclement the weather. These  are the "days,--, she claims, when she  takes iu enough fresh air to last for  the other ten months of the year. Her  rule of living, summed up as she gives  it, is: "Xo precautions of any kind,  rnceasing work ten months a* yc*  Hardly a safe rule to be followed indiscriminately.  Mine.

The King'--* Sympathy.  . The "Nose For News."  An interesting incident is told in  the New York "Times" of the exploit of an oflice-boy connected with  that journal. The telegraph editor  and members of the staff had gono homo  in tho early morning of a day last fall.  Their work wn.-. done, nnd the paper  had gone to press. Tho oflicc-boy, tired  and sice; *���������, sat at his desk finishing up  somo littlo tnsk preparatory lo going  homo.  Just as ho wns leaving tho room one  of tho carriers used to bring mc.-wiagc*  through tho tubo from the Associated  Press office leaped out into tho receptacle. Mechanically tho hoy stepped  over to tho tube, and, lifting out tho  envelope, tore it open. Hastily glancing down the page, he saw that it was  a "bulletin of most important news. Ho  had been long enough in the ofllce to  realize the value of news.  Ho looked around tho rooms, but not  an editor was left to whom ho could refer tho matter; so he ran upstairs to  tho composing-room and had a consultation with the foreman, who at once  recognized tho value of tho news item.  Tho office-boy and foreman pie-pared  the despatch for the printers, put the  head-lines upon it, and had it set up.  Meantime the presses in the basement  were grinding out the morning edition.  A message was sent by thc foreman to  the pressroom to stop the printing. One  of the stereotyped plates was taken off  and a new one, containing the new matter, substituted.  From that time on until dawn this  boy was the editor-in-chief of the'paper,  nnd got out three editions. Ho did not  know whether his act would meet with  the approval of his superiors or not,  but he was doing what ho felt ought to  be done; and, in fact, he had saved the  paper from being beaten by its rivals.  When he came down to the office a  few hours later, a littlo anxious, he  found himself in high favor. His act  was chronicled on tho office bulletin-  board, and he wa3 commended for his  thoughtfulness and enterprise. Tho editor-in-chief .further' told the boy that  his salary had been raised, and that a  place was open to him on its staff of  reporters.  One of William Black's Yarns.  A New Terror.  A new terror nas been added ro the  life of tbe Knglish novelist. Mr. Arnold  Bennett tells the tale, says The New  .York Tribune. The_ Secretary of thc  Patlding'ton Free Public Library, it appears, sent him an autograph comimiiii-  ;ation the olher day. What did this  missive contain? An order for fifty copies of one of his books? A testimonial  Lo the popularity of lii.i work among tin*  i-ender-i ul Patlaiiigtou'.' Neither of these  thing.-?, but ������o?..<.'*!''i.!,; very ���������':'i,-tiCi;:l;  >n fact, says Mr. Jit".'.licit, ibe Secretary  wrote simply ".inking mc tu present a.  :'j]iy of my last novel, and c.'ipi.';,-i o.'  any of my other books' to the lihr.try."  Now, Piidiliiigtou has a population ot  nearly a. hundred and fifty thousand,  'and a rnj.able value \,t nearly a mil-  '.ion and u half sterling.". Thc Secretary attempted to stroke down the re-  -.ipietit of his letter with the information that many noted authors have  very generously helped his institution,  but Mr. Bennett is cruel enough to say  that the library in question is less justified in appealing to hiin in this manner  t.ha.n it would be in going to the pit's  .nouth and saying to the miner: "Now  fou have worked hard and brought that  :oal to the surface, kindly forfeit your  wages and give the coal to us to warm  ������nr rooms with*" He concludes to stick  to his principle of getting people to reatl  sis books in order that ho may receive  monoy, and not to pay away money in  nrder that he may got people to read  aim.  Here Is, to my mind, says M.A.P., the  finest: story of the King's    unbounded  sympathy for the sufferings of his subjects  that  has yet come to light.    A  young dressmaker was threatened with  consumption, following upon long   and  dangerous chest trouble, and was left  nearly destitute.     The doctors advised  her to obtain admittance to an open-  air homo to undergo a course of treatment.   Meanwhile she was taken into a  convent  and  devotedly  nursed   by ,th'������  nuns;  but, unfortunately, all their efforts to, get her admitted into, a ho.ne  of the kind were quite fruitless.    Then  the  girl,  learning  that   the i King  was  patron of one of these institutions on  the south  coast, resolved    secretly : to  write to him and plead; for his assistance.   About a fortnight later, a gentleman called at the "convent and asked to  see her.   He,gave no name, and at first  he was told that she was too ill to "sea'  him.    He   then explained   that  it, was  necessary for him to see her, as he had:  come to inquire into her case, and as to  the    desirability of, sending her to an  open-air home for the treatment of consumption*     She ; was   aided: downstairs;  and he questioned her as to what the  doetors had said, and then inquired  to  whom   she  had  applied  for  help.    She  mentioned 'several names, and  at    last  hesitatingly admitted that she had writ-;  ten to the King.   He then informed her  that he had come,from the King to inquire into her ease, as his Majesty had  noticed  her  letter  and wished  to  help  her.    After further inquiries everything  was satisfactorily arranged, and the girl  was sent for a prolonged period to the  home, with the result that her health  was greatly benefited, and that she has  since been able to return to work.  The Royal Actors.  Though thc fee for a "command"  play at Whitehall was only ������20, says  The St. James' Gazette, the generous  George delighted the players by paying  them X2j0 for "their trouble in only  seven times acting," and the L-urd  Chamberlain of the day took charge of  "the household music, the wax lights  and    a      chaise-marine    to* carry    tho  moving wardrobe to every play."

He would pass very well .'or  a.

General Viljoen is a remarkably modest man, speaking de-  precatingly, when lie i������ forced to Hpeak,  of bin many line military exploits during the late war. It is on record how  at Vaalkranz he rescued a Boer gun  from tbe British, single-handed, scampering across an open plain with it amidst  il veritable hail of bullets. I was told  by a personal friend of his that hn simply does not know what physical fear  is, nnd one may readily credit this, to  judge only from the Vanlkrnnz incident,  ft is no matter for wonder that his rise  from Krugcrsdorp policeman to Assistant Commandant-General of the Trana-  vanl fDices wns so meteoric in its swiftness i id brillin*������������������v  Stories which illustrate the Scotch  habit of thrift are constantly  coming to light. There was one  which greatly amused the late William  Black, and whioli his biographer, Sir  Wemyss Reid, says ho was fond of relating. It is a story within a story, and  although one part of it is old the rest  is not.  Somebody was telling a Scotchman a  tale which he had just been reading of  a certain Eastern potentate who, having taken .offence at the doings of his  grand vizier, had ordered him to be put  to death. The victim knew he must die.  but he wished to die'. comfortably. He  was aware that his master's chief, executioner was very prolicicnt, nnd could  "despatoh his victims not only with  swiftness, but with no appreciable suffering. Accordingly ho sent for the executioner,-and offered him a large sum  of money on condition that he would  put him to death without pain.  ��������� The executioner promised to do his  best, and������������������' the grand vizier went to his  doom in a frame of pious resignation.  Kneeling to Teeeive thc fatal blow, he  was conscious that the sword of tho exo-  cutioncr was whirled about -his head,  but he felt nothing,  ..... "How is this?" he said..: "You undertook for a large snm of money to put.  me to-death inslnntiniobus.y and without pain, yet you nre only playing,with  me and prolonging iny misery. Do your  work quickly!"  Thereupon the executioner stepped up  to the condemned man and offered him  a pineh of.snulV. The vizier took the  pinch of snuff and sneezed, and forthwith his head tumbled from his shoulders.   :  This is the story which, according-to  Mr. Black,. was  told  to a  fellow-countryman of his.    The Scotchman listened  and at the end said:  "Well?"  "Well!" repeated the interlocutor.  "What do you mean?"  "I'm waiting for the finish of the  story," said the Scot.  "But you've got the finish," said the  other. "Don't you see? Thc executioner was so clover that he cut the fellow's  neck in two without letting him feel  it."  "Oh, n3*e. I kent thnt weel encugh,  but that's not tho point. What 1 want  to know is, did thc executioner get the  money ?"  Was George Eliot Immoral?  One of the most interesting passages in Sir Leslie Stephen's book on  Oeorge Eliot is that in which lie  attempts to interpret the metives that  led George Eliot'to unite her life with  that of Coorge Henry Lewes. He ssys:  "Lewes had married in 1S10. Ho'.was nt  this time living in thc s.iine house wilh  Thornton Hunt, who had edited t,be  "Leader" in eo-oporntion with him. Mrs.  Lewes preferred Tliornton Hunt to her  husband, to whom she had already  borne children. .Though Lcwes's view.!  of the niurringe tie were anything bur  strict, this had led some two years previously lo il break-up of his family. A  legal divorce was impossible; but George  Knot held that the circumstances justified her in forming a union with  Lewes, which she considered as equivalent to a logiLiniatc marriage. . . . It  may be a pretty problem for casuists  whether thc breach of an assumed moral law is aggravated or extenuated by  the offender's honest conviction that the  law is not moral at nil. George Eliot,  at any rate, emphatically look that position. She had Jong protested against  the; absolute indissolubility of marriage.  She thought, wc arc told, thnt thc system worked ba.-'ly, because wives were  less anxious to please their husband.-!  when their position was 'invulnerable.'  She held, with Milton, that so close n  tio between persons not united in soul  was intolerable. . -. . Writing n few  months after the union, she. says she  cannot understand how any unworldly,  unauperstitious person, who is sufficiently 'acquainted with the realities of life,'  can pronounce her relation to Lewes  'immoral.' Nothing in her life, she declares, has been more 'profoundly serious,' which means, it seems, thnt she  does not approve of 'light and easily  broken ties.' No one can deny that the  relation to Lewes wa.s 'serious' enough  in her sense. It lasted through their  common lives, nnd their devotion to  eneh other was unlimited nnd appeavs  only to have strengthened with time."

She had  the right to a title of her own if she  had cared to use it, hut she did not, and  very few people in England knew much  about the German family from which  she was descended.  "When she was still quite a girl she  had a very temp'ting offer to go to America and act, and thc offer was accepted.  On the ship she met a young man on  his way to California to make bis fortune, or rather to improve it, for he had  nbout ten thousand pounds which he had  just inherited, and wanted to invest in  some profitable way.

"Somehow, thc threats of this" saturnine individual, who had followed her to  England from Australia, where' she  played one year, had made a very strong  impression upon her mind, and mat impression revived when she fell 'in love  wilh somebody else. Once in a while he  sent her a.souvenir o*: his continued existence; and the last packet she had received from him���������a year ago���������had/been  posted from some'place, the name bein-;  indistinguishable, iu-America.

The fellow had shown my hero  some wonderful specimens, and they were  already chumming together. At the end  of the letter ray hero told his wife th:  name of his new friend. It was that of  the man who had loved and threatened  her in Australia, and from whom she  had heard a year ago in America.  "Here was a development; nnd, as you  can see, Comtesse, the villain of the piece  is on the stage.  "Thc poor girl was sick with forebodings.

No one had talked in this way to the  lady of dyes and paints for many a long  year; yet she listened, and laughed, and  was not displeased; but she knew that  she would never give up her talisman.  "And how do you propose to make  use of my sense of justice with your  wits?" the Comtesse de Silbery deliberately asked.  "By telling you a story," said Hope  Newcome.  "Is that all? An exciting one, I hope,  or I shall remember that in half an hour  it will be my usual time for beginning a  littlo game."  "1 shall try to make you forget," replied Newcome.

"Clo-en   Hoof."  "Ohl" exclaimed the Comtesse, "at  last you have come to the moonstone."  She bad laid the !-Jp;urix's bead on the  table, and had been toying with it as she  listened. If ope New-.'nine's eyes and hers  were upon ii, now, i.ml the spirit-light  imprisoned within the stone sent up one  of its elusive gleams, like an eye answering  tlieir glan.'es.

The man  looked rather like Byron, her husband  answered. He had a deformed foot, and  the miners round .nbout called him in  their rude slang 'Cloven Hoof.'  "Quickly she wrote again, telling the  whole story, which she had kept fron  her husband before, warning him to be  careful; whatever he did he muBt not  let the other dream that thoy were married, or even knew each other, if it were  not too late for that. And she begged  that in any event the partnership might  be dissolved. She had a presentiment of  evil to come.  "But many days passed, and she got  no answer to her latter. She "could not  sleep nt night for terrible dreams; and,  at about this time, another great perplexity had come to her. She knew tnat  she was to be a mother.  "All her anxieties made her ill; her  tour had to be interrupted in the midst,  and engagements cancelled. Then ono  night she had n dream more horrible  than any which had tortured her before.  She dreamt that she saw the man with  the deformed foot digging a grave for  the dead body of her husband, whom lie  had murdered, and hoped to hide away  for ever, with all traces of the crime.  "She told me afterwards���������for I heard  this story from her own lips���������that she'  must have been half mad. She hardly  knew what she was doing until she  found herself in the train traveling alone  from Chicago���������where she had been taken  ill���������on the way to California and the  place where her husband was living wiwi  his 'friend.' Without a word to anyone  she had stolen away in the early dawn.  Had she confessed the truth to nor manager, and told him what she wished to  do, he would have tried to prevent her  from going to her husband, and, in her  weak state of health, would probablj  have succeeded. As it was, he would  have followed, no doubt, had he guessed  her destination; but she left a note  which put him upon the wrong track,  and not only did she contrive to disappear, but, as a matter of fact, the mystery which surrounded her disappearance  was never cleared up. Circumstances  which came afterwards made her desim  to remain behind the veil she herself had  dropped, nnd it was never lifted.  "The nearest railway town to the place  my poor heroine wished to reach���������we'll  call it Caxlon; it's very like the real  name���������was thirty miles away. When  she- got there the whole country was  aflame with excitement, and hardly hnd  she been five minutes in the small, rough  hotel when she heard a strange story.  "It seemed that two young men who  had come out from the East to this pan  of California'had mysteriously vanished  within six or seven weeks. They were  both well* off, and had had a good deal  of .money sent to them by tlieir friends,  who, anxious at not hearing from them  for a long time, caused enquiries to be  made. They were traced to thc neighborhood of Caxton, but no further. Matters had reached this stage when anoth-"  cr man also disappeared���������the very man  whom the poor girl had feared might  murder her husband. Yet, judging from  the tale she was told, her dream was a  contradiction; for her husband had been  arrested, and -was now held on suspicion  of having murdered his partner.  "He, her lover-husband," had been  grievously wounded, lying unconscious  when he was found; but in a pocket of  his coat was a diary which coolly recounted in n cypher easily read by experts the details of the two murders already accomplished, even jotting down a  memorandum of the spot where the bodies of his victims (the young men'who  had recently disappeared) were buried.  "Instantly the girl knew that tliure  had been a terrible plot, but even she  could- not guess the whole. She had  given in the oflice of the hotel a common  name, calling herself 'Mrs. Smith,' 01  something of the sort, and her face, pale  and haggard with illness, anxiety, and  the fatigue of her long, hurried journey.  was not as striking in its beauty as it  had been before.  "She said that she-was a distant relative of thc suspected murderer, who had  been brought to Caxton only that morning, to lie.in tbe infirmary attached to  the town jail, awaiting his trial. She  begged for an interview with the prisoner, and as there was little difficulty in  the Far West in those days about granting 8uch~a~ requc3t~to_a~pretty~ woman,"  she obtained her wish.  "The poor fellow had been badly  wounded, but he was conscious, and was  between joy and sorrow at thc sight of  his wife. They were not allowed to sec  each other alone, but the thought that  she had come to him and loved him, believing him, despite the evidence which  others accepted almost without question,  gave new strength and courage, ne determined that when he hnd to stand his  trial for murder he would make a brave  fight for his life. .  "But that very night an infuriated  mob who believed him guilty and feared  that he would not be hanged after all  broke open the jail, and took the prisoner out to lynch him.** His wife heard the  noise, and learnt what was going on  from the landlord's son, a reckless fellow  who was for hurrying out to see the  fun.

It was a big  bribe for him; and by raising an alarm  that. the soldiers were coining from a  military garrison not many miles away  the trick wns done. Tbe mob was  robbed of its victim, the rescuer let the  lady know that her 'relative' was safe,  and in a few days aided her to join him.  "But Hie pTcnt pxcitnment nnd exertion brought on a relapse, and for weeics  her husband lay at death's door. They  lited in .1 it*ii"M cabin with scarcely the  necessaries of life, much less the delicacies needed by an imnlid; still, love and  faithful nursing pulled him through to a  pale scinblitce oi" -cunning health. And  there at that little cabin their child was  born���������a son."  "You were the child!" exclaimed the  Comtesse, all her affectations forgotten  in her interest.  "Yes, you have guessed it. I was tne  child. And before I had lived a year my  father was dead���������but nol before" he had  told the true story of the ending of that  fatal partnerabiplo my mother.  "His paitr.er and .'��������������� slept in the same  ing strange things in bis sloop. 11 ia Hits'*  picions were 11. ������,d ng.iinst the man ]le  had believed in, anil lu* began to ussti.  ciato him with the mysterious disappearances which were so much talked of  in the neighborhood.

He determined  that he would go to the place one day  and make a search.  "Perhaps it would not have occurred  to him to do this had he not begun to  fear that his partner had lied to him  about the gold discovered on his property. Gold he hnd seen, but he had reason  to believe it had been brought from a  distance and placed where he hnd seen it  for the purpose of tricking him into putting down his money. But it was not  yet too late to dissolve tho partnership.  "One day 'Cloven Hoof went away,  and my father took advantage of his  absence to pay a visit to the red trees.  Close by there was a cave, and in a nolo  in the cave, under a great bank of sand  and debris, he found not one body, but  two. The skulls had been broken in bo-  hind with some heavy, sharp instrument,  like an axe, and the bodies had been  huddled into the hole dressed exactly as  they had died. Their bloodstained clothes  had not mouldered away like their flesh.  Probably the murderer's courage had  failed him before emptying bis victims'  pockets, or else he had felt so certain  the bodies would not be discovered that  he had not thought it necessary to do  moro than hide them; for (determineu  to be sure that the accusation lie meant  to make was well founded) my father  searched the pockets of the dead men's  coats. It must have been a grim task,  but it was rewarded by the finding of  letters from the murderer upon one of  the bodies, proving beyond doubt that ho  had been the man to lure the young  stranger from the East to his doom.  Just such promises ns the fiend had held  out to my father bad lie given to hi3  predecessor.  "My father took the letters and thrust  them deep into a pocket of his own coat.  Then he went back to the house, where  he meant to confront the murderer with  his knowledge of tbe double crime. But  his partner's journey had been a pro-  tense. Tho wretch had only gone a short  distance, meaning to return unexpectedly, and, taking my father unawares, kill  him a3 he had killed the others. Afterwards my -mother found that all my  father's money had been withdrawn from  his bank by moans,of a forged letter;  and this having been accomplished, the  sooner he was out of the way the better.  No doubt the murderer meant this to ba  his last crime, and intended in any event  to fly with the spoils, throwing suspicion on his latest victim.  "As ray father was walking back to  the house, someone leaped at him from  behind, but he sprang aside in time to  avoid thc full force of the blow. Ho told  my mother that somehow he felt no  surprise at sight of his partner, with the  lust of murder in liis eyes; and they  fought together a desperate fight, eacii  man for his life.  , "Once my father got his enemy down,  and panted out what he bad learnt; but  the fiend wriggled himself free, and-  struck my father wfth/a knife, which  pierced his breast, touching the lungs. It  was this wound that finally resulted in  his death. -      .*, Jji.:s_i_2a  " "While he was unconscious his enemy  must have placed in his pocket the diary  in cipher, which had evidently been pro-  pared expressly for the purpose. My  lather know that he had wounded his  would-be murderer, nevertheless, the  wretch escaped; and it was supposed  that my father had killed him and hidden the body before falling down in a  faint induced by his own wound.  "As for the letters, which must have  shown conclusively who was guilty, they  had disappeared���������my father and mother  believed that they had been sfolon by  the murderer. The moonstone Sphinx  and my mother's miniature were also  missing, and it was not dillicult to guess  where they had gone, though 1 lie treacherous brute bad no means, of knowing  what his victim had really been to the  girl nicy both loved.  "The letters being lost and the murderer gone, there was no absolute proof  that my father had not committed the  crimes of which be bad been ticcuscd;  and my mother begged that he would remain with her, hidden and safe, while he  lived. Such an existence must have  proved impossible for a man of spirit,  had he not died within 11 year;"but I  think that, in spite of all, they must  have known some hours of happiness together.

In refusing to grant a private interview to a certain politician, who is always trying to give him advice and information ou important matters of legislation, President liooscveit is said to  have remarked: "It is always most distressing to me to be obliged to talk to  that man. I find myself constantly expecting him lo revert to his arboreal ancestors, grow a tail, and swing gracefully  from the chandelier without interrupting  the conversation."  It is related that on one occasion  Judge Boy Bean of Texas, who is better  known as "the law west, of the Pecos  Kiver," held a coroner's inquest on a  Mexican who had been found dead near  the Pecos River. The jury brought in a  verdict of accidental death. The crowd  was dispersing when the judge called  them back. "There is another matter to  attend to," be said; "on this man's body  was found fifty dollars and a six-shooter. It is contrary lo the laws of Texas  and to the peace and dignity of the  Stato to carry concealed weapons. Therefore, I confiscate the revolver and fine  the deceased one dollar. The costs of thc  case are just forty-nine dollars, which  just settles his estate."  A good story is told of the quickwitted Irish lawyer, Baron O'Grady, who  on one occasion was trying a ease in a  country court, outside of thc walls of  which a fair was in progress. Amid the  miscellaneous herds of animals were a  considerable number of asses, and one of  these commenced to bray loudly. At  once thc chief baron stopped the advocate, who at that moment happened to  be pleading. "Wait a moment, Mr.  Bushe, I cannot hear two at once." The  court roared, and the advocate Hushed.  Presently, when the judge came to sum  up, another ass struck in and the bray  resounded through the court. Up jumped  Mr. Bushe at once, with bis band to his  car. "Would j-our Lordship speak a little more loudly? There is such an echo  in the court thnt I cannot hear "distinctly."  During a visit to the South with an  eclipse "expedition, some years ago, an  eminent American professor met an old  negro servant, whose duty it was to look  after the chickens of the establishment  where be was slaying. The day before  the eclipse took place the professor, in  an idle moment, called the old man io  him and said: "Sam, if to-morrow morning, at eleven o'clock, you watch your  chickens, .you will find Uiey will, all gc  to roost." Sam was skeptical, of course,  but when at the appointed time next day  the sun in the heavens was darkened,  and the chickens retired to roost, the negro's astonishment knew no bounds. He  approached the professor in awed won  der. "Massa," lie asked, "how long age  did you know dat dein chickens would  go to roost?" "Oh, a long time," said  the professor, airily. "Did you know a  year ago, massa?" "Yes." " "Then dal  beats de debil!" exclaimed the astonished  old man; "dsyn chickens weren't hatched  a year ago!"  Booker T. Washington recently told a  gathering of ncgro.-s that one" of the  great faults of his race was a disposition  to exhibit knowledge under any and nil  circumstances, and" asserted that, until  the negro learned not to display liis vanity, ho was useless in any confidential  capacity. By way of illustration, he told  a story 'which, he said, might be or  might not be apocryphal, but "which was  good enough to be" true. General Sherman had been told that the soldiers of a  negro regiment in his command were  very lax when on sentry duty, and  showed a fondness for passing doubtful  persons through the lines just to uidulge  fcbeir power to do so. To ascertain if  this were so, he muffled himself one  night in a cloak, and tried to get past a  black sentry. After the "Who goes  there?" the "A friend," and the "Advance, friend, and give the countersign,"  had been exchanged, Sherman replied:  "Boxburyl" "Xo, sab!" was.the polite  but firm response. "Medford!" "No,  sa.h!" "Charleston!" Sherman next tried  "No, sah! No, salt!" said the negro, determinedly. Then he added: "Now, seea  heaQi���������yo' can go fru th' whole blamed  joggrafy; but Massa Sherman lie dono  say-that-nobody-can got-pas'-me-wifout  Cut  UIllM  mitt  Hrlc-a-llrac  a cat; the next best thing is a trap*  Few housekeepers know, however, thaU  mice will not go near a trap unless IB  is thoroughly scalded and aired altefl  every three or four captures.

It has been  adopted as the national crest for so  long that (partly through thc taste for  stamp-collecting) the existence of one  nf the rarest und most beautiful of the  bird creation has been made far more  widely known than it otherwise would  lave been. There is a race of birds  called trogons, moat of which have very  fine feathers and remarkable coloring.  They nre found in India and the Malays, but are most tuiinerous in Central  and Southern America. It was from  their plumage that the Mexicans made  their famous mosaics of feather work.  From the tail feathers they made the  lustrous green helmets of their kings  and nobles. The most gorgeous of all  was the long-tailed or resplendent tro-  gon, which was kept n������ a sacred or royal  bird in the palace of .Montezuma, or in  one of the two houses which formed  lhe royal menageries. Adequate description of the bird is almost impossible, it  has a rounded plume on the head, cascades of feathers falling from the back  over the shoulders, plumes falling over  the tail a yard long, and a most elegant contour. The color of the whole  of the upper surface and plumes is a  "most resplendent golden green, that of  the breast and under parts crimson or  scarlet. Such is the national emblem  of Guatemala.  you   au- j  vise ? j  George���������Love is ! he salt of life, my ���������  friend.

Travelling South one notices the  lack of neatness aruund the home.- and  on the streets of the villages, and begin  to wonder if it is possible to keep  tilings in the order that they are .-:een  in the North.

I have noticed  today that the towns on this road are  better kept than on any line South I  have travelled, but still the hon.-.es  need paint and the sidewalk* to be  paved." We were then entering the  sandy region of North Carolina wheie  things looked very discouraging. Mis  reply was "Vou wait a half an hour  and you will see a real New England  town with painted houses, nicely kept  yaids and .streets in best of order.

C7T MONO the employees of one of the  J\     important mercantile establlsti-  J~A     merits   of   C'r.ieajjo   is   a   husky  young  man   who   Is   known   as  "Mike."    There seems to be no  clear  understanding   among  "Mike's"  Immediate superiors as to the nature of  his  duties.      He    sits    around   among  boxes at the rear end  of  the  concern  most of the time and smokes an old  plpo  that  lias  the  death-rattle   in   lln  throat.  Occasionally thero is a| rag-picker or  a suspicious looking prowler to be  driven out of the alley, but aside from  looking after such persons "Mike" has  no regular work to do. This gives him  plenty of time to get fat and to ponder  upon the great mysteries of existence.  The other day one of the linn's  trusted men had occasion to look  around among the boxes where "Milce"  was on guard, and, finding the latte:  with his heels cocked up and his chin  on his breast, while the old pipe gur-  Eled and wheezed and threatened fitter  every pull to give up the struggle forever, the man from the oflice proceeded  to read his colaborer a little sermon.  " 'Mike,' " said the one who amounted  to something, "why do you sit around  here wasting your spare moments? You  are   neglecting   golden    opportunities.  Instead of idling your time away you  might have a book and  be studying.  Many a man in your place would educate himself, and so become capable o:  taking a higher place in the world.   3  myself started in here at the bottom.  But I was determined not to remain at  the bottom.    How  do you  suppose  ]  got up?    By sitting around and waiting for.my employers to come and lifl  me  out  of    my   place?      No,  Indeed.  'Mike,' I fitted myself for a better posi  tion.    I put in my spare time finding  out things about the way the establishment   was   run.     I   made   myself   too  valuable to be kept at the bottom.    1  was determined from  the start that i  would be promoted, not merely for my  own benefit, but for the benefit of the  firm.     I   decided   to   make   myself   so  valuable that they could not afford not  to  take  advantage  of  my  knowledge  and my ability.   1 think a great many  young men make mistakes in the attitude they assume at the start.    They  try to get up merely for their own, profit.    They should  make themselves sc  competent  that their employers  could  not help seeing that it  would be un  profitable   to   keep   them   down.     Yoi  have a hundred chances here for ever.",  one that I had when I started.   Three  fourths of the time you have nothing t<  do.   You could put in this time study  ing and finding out how our business i."  done.    In   that  way  you  could   make  yourself worth more to the firm than  you tire at present.   "Why don't you dt.  it?"  "Mike" slowly removed his heel*  from the box on which they had rested,  and, after having gulped down n  mouthful of nicotine, he replied:.  "I've noticed one thing'around thl*  place. The less a feller knows the lest  he has. to do."���������Chicago "Record-Her  aid."  NOT8CE.

I wa9  telling four or i" re of them last night  about a dress I naw that was white,  ������vith a little i: *sh of lavender, nnd  they all laugh*-. .1. I wonder why they  laughed.  Women aren't angels, and It's mighty lucky for the women.  Political opinion Is like a, mustache;1  lt never looks well on a girl's lip unless there-Is a man hitched to it.  Probably the first thing Jonah's wifo  ���������said after he told her the whale story  was that she needed a lot of new  clothes.  A woman's foot Is two sizes bigger  than the shoe she wears to be stylish  and two sizes smaller than tho ones  ���������he wears to be comfortable.  If the average woman could havo  <her choice ot the way she.would like  ������o be "won," she would probably  choose the man that would knock hor  down with a club and then sit on hor.  A woman can always find somo  flaw in a man's story���������unless it isn't  true.  For the first three weeks after 11  gets born a baby looks 'most as rod  and uncomfortable as its father.  It takes a smart woman to make a  man out of a fool, but any fool womaD  i;r.n make a fool out of a man.  No girl over 16 can be expected to  lie satisHed with the idea of kissing  that she gets out of Sunday, school  books. ������������������������������������������������������ '������������������������������������������,&(*:>>���������' ������������������������������������*  A girl's way of flattering a new man  Is to insinuate that she has heard tho  other women talking a lot about him.  It is much more likely that women  are angels than it is that angels aro  itvomen.  Marriage is a great thing for a man,  It makes him ashamed to talk about  -this small  troubles.  If the men got up a "Fathers' Club"  and talked nothing but baby-talk, all  the women would believe they did  -nothing but drink cocktails.  A woman can get engaged and havo  the wedding all talked over in less  time than she can decide with another  woman what is the best kind of canary seed.  It is easier for a woman to find n  reason than it is for her to find a haifc  pin, and harder for a man to find any  reason in it than it is for him to find  ?ier pocket.

Tlie successful hostess of to-d:iy  must provide for her guests, some-  Uiing more than the conventional  dinner, reception, luncheon, card  party, or dunce of the days of our grand-  lnothcrs. It is (lie indoor functions which  (ax milady's ingenuity nnd originality;  the summer diversions, consisting of garden fetes, In nil ch ing excursions nnd picnics are not diilicult to arrange. Winter  and autumn arc the strenuous seasons  fori the ambitious hostess.  An amusing evening may be spent at  n gossip party. For this an even number of girls und men must be present,  each receiving a. card with n numbered  list of subjects for conversation written  upon it���������a lively piece* of social news of  the day, the announcement of a certain  engagement, a striking or conspicuous  costume in wfiJeii "Mrs. So und .So" np-  penred recently, or anything which might  be discussed for a few minutes. There  must be as many subjects as couples.  About the various rooms tho hostess  has arranged tcte-a-tctes, each with a  number above it. Each gueat is asked  to draw a number from a receptacle of  some description, there being duplicates  of each number, one for the man und  one for the woman. These numbers are  matched with those above the tetc-a-  tetes until each guest has a seat antl n  partner with whom to gossip. When  everyone is Ben ted the hostess taps ii  bell and announces the first topic on the  card, and for five minutes that particular bit of news is discussed. Again the  mistress of ceremonies rings her beli  and reads the second subject aloud.  Eneh man then says- au revoir to the  girl witli wthom he has been talking, and  moves on to the next number to gossip  about the second topic. This continues  until the subjects nre exhausted, and at  tho same time each man has talked with  every fjirl in the party.  Pencils and slips of paper are distributed at the conclusion, and the girls  write the name of the man who has gossiped with them most entertainingly.  The men do likewise, and prizes are given  to those voted most proficient in the art  of gossiping.  'This form of entertainment may be  made pretty and picturesque by giving a  garden or out-of-door cll'eet to the rooms.  Palms, (lowers, hammocks, porch chairs,  and other outside accessories -scattered  about over a green canvas lloor covering  or imitation grass rug3 lend a pretty  lawn party cll'eet. In case the latter  idea is employed tlio invitations may  read, "A Garden Gossip Party"���������a more  or less startling invitation in the midst  of winter. Summer gowns add to the  warm weather cll'eet of this sort of entertainment.  Proposal parties are new and clever  when properly introduced. The hostess,  when her guests have arrived, informs tho  men that they must propose to every  girl in the room within a stated period  of time. She also tells them they musi  do it in. proper-style, and take her off  to ono of the cosy corners or secluded  nooks she has arranged about the rooms.  She then takes her women guests aside  and gives each of-them half as many little  red hearts of paper, ilannel, silk, or any  convenient material, as there are men in  tlio party. -She also gives each, girl an  equal number of tiny white-mittens.;  At the signal of the hostess every man  selects a girl and asks hev to marry him,  pressing his suit until, he is forced to  leave her by the jingle of the hostess's  bell. He then proposes to another girl,  and so on until he has laid liis heart at  tlie feet of everyone-in" the party. The  girls distribute tho hearts and mittens,  n heart for a well-told confession of lovo,  a mitten for u less impressive tale. At  tho end of the stated' hour the men's  collections of hearts and mittens .'.re  counted and prizes are given them. The  man with tho largest pile of mitten? is  consoled- with a pair of white woollen  mittens. The men fare best at a. proposal party, as the prizes go to them.  ! :  Parenthetical Pick-Me-Ups.  Tho "(-"nflcSr.3.1 Girl" discourses on ������h"u  subject as follows:  "However much one nuy try  one's very hardest to blink a most,  impleading feature of modern life, tlie  fact remains that the habit of having recourse to little pick-me-ups between  whiles is beginning to assume very definite and undesirable proportions among  the society women of the twentieth century. The reason is, of course, not far  to seek, but the remedy seems as diilicult of discovery as Ihe philosopher's,  stone. The highly artificial conditions  under which we live, with nerves always  strung to the highest state of tension,  nnd ever looking out for some new form  of excitement, make it inevitable Hint  artificial stimulants should be resorted  to in order fo enable the jaded human  organization to meet thc excessive demands that are made upon it. From  morning till night, and often through  tho night as well, there is one long round  of worry and excitement.  "The demands of modern civilization  are so exacting that even the simplest  things bexmie either fatiguing or exciting. The mere act of dressing, for instance, which h;i3 to be repeated several  times in the day, makes a severe call  upon the strength of a delicate girl, even  if she has a clever maid to assist her;  and if she is one of those unfdrtunato  individuals who have to; try to be  'smart' without possessing the indispensable services of a lady's-maid, the mere  strain, for instance, of arranging her  own elaborate coiffure is quite enough  to exhaust lier for some time after the  operation is completed.  "Plenty of girls find that the mere  physical exertion of brushing their bailor lacing a pair of tight corsets leaves  them so tired that before going out to  face the world a nip of cognac or a glas3  of liqueur is required to brace them up,  and give them courage to face the world  with the society smile without which no  self-respecting lady of fasliion dare appear in public.  "Many ladies, too, find the fatigues of  shopping and  of  'trying on'  extremely  exhausting,   owing,   in  many   cases,   to  their pretefnaturally small   waists and  their abnormally high heels, which often  have the effect of making them short of  breath and short of temper at the same  lime.    At that moment, unfortunately,  the considerate dressmaker or millineV,  who  has  herself  experienced  the  same  feeling, only in a. worse degree, because  she has to wort while her customer is  only  amusing herself,  obligingly  comes  forward with an od'er of a glass of Hene-  dictine or the 'tiniest drop'  of    Green  Chartreuse, ana her fair customer finds it  so grateful anl comforting that on hei'  next visit she looks out (or it as a matter of course, and in a short time starts  a bottle in her own room to have recourse to whenever she feels 'a1 sinking.'  "Tlie high-sounding names of the various expensive liqueurs have such a distinguished ring about them that it never  occurs  to   the  lady   who  is  consuming  them how perilously near she is going to  the woman who, in a lower rank of life,  has recourse to a quartern of gin under  similar circumstances.   Some women de-  ludo themselves still further hy drinking  can de Cologne or "some other perfume on  tho assumption that a pick-me-up of this  kind is quite harmless, whereas, if anything, it is more deadly than the other.  "Of course, it is not .suggested for a  moment that Indies who have recourse  lo this kind of thing go  the length of  making themselves intoxicated. But they  do often get as far as acquiring a color,  and a sparkle in the eye, and a style of  conversation, all of. which aro quite for-  ign to their real nam re, and the effect  in  the long run is bound  to bo highly  ..elcterious."

When Cardinal Manning was rector of  Lovington he went to visit a parishioner,  a widow seventy-live years of age, who  had ten children, of whom all but ono  daughter hud married aud left her. This  daughter also was about to be married.  Thet old lady would then be quite alono.  "Dame, you must feel it lonely now, af- !  ter having had so large a family," said  tho Cardinal, sympathetically. "Yes, sir,"  she said, "I do feel it lonesome.

Some years ago, w*ien the present  Queen of England was Princess of Wales  and her children were very small, they  were staying at a quiet watering-place,  and one day on returning from a short  sail, one of the little princesses was  walking up the plank. Au old sailor instinctively said: "Take cue, little lady!"  The child drew herself up haughtily and  said: "I'm not a lady, I'm a princess!"  The Princess of Wales, who overheard  the kindly injunction and the rather ill-  bred reply, said quickly, "Tell the good  sailor you are not iu little lady yet, bul  you hope lo be some day."  At a dinner recently, Archbishop-elect  John M.

It is customary in the cheaper classes  of German inns to substitute chicory for  coffee. Prince liismarck was aware of  this, so one day when he came to a small  inn, after a long journey, he sat down  and called the innkeeper "to him. "Have  you any chicory?" said he. "Yes, sir,"  returned the innkeeper. "Well, bring all  you have 'here lo me!" ordered Bismarck.  The innkeeper was gone a few minutes,  and returned with an immense armful of  chicory. "Is this nil the chicory you  have in the housiV" asked Bismarck.  "Yes���������all." 'Well, then," said Bismarck,  "leave tin's chicory here and) make me a  cup of co'll'cc."  M.

Latterly he has been  visiting relations in Kankakee, and is  now in Chicago, where ho attracts  marked attention on the street, even  among the big-footed girls of that  town, lleaupre is eight feet three and  one-half inches tall, weighs 1170 pounds,  woj.rB a No. 10 hat, n No. 22 shoes and  n No. 21 collar. His chest measure is  5(1 inches. He is twenty-one years old,  nnd was boru near Winnipeg, of French-  Canadian parents, whoso statures were  not nbovo tho average.  "Whero did 1 get my height V asked  Eenupre, repeating the question of a  friend. ".Te ne snia pas," and he shrugged his  ninssivo  shoulders.  "Am I strong in proportion to my  size 1" he went on; "well, you may decide." With the remnrk he walked out  of a local restaurant into the Btrcst.  threw ono arm around the body of a  farmer's horse, and lifted the animal  off its feet.  When Beaupre was ten years old he  was six feet four inches tall. "That  fact enabled mc to escape ono thing  few boys do escape," remarked the giant  when comment was mndc on his early  growth.- "My father's clothes were  never out down to fit me. He is only  five feet eight inches." For a time  Beaupre was a cowboy in Montana. His  size was too great for the horses he  had to ride, so he gave up the occupation. During his cowboy experience  a pony kicked him, . and broke his  jawbone, leaving a bad scar. But for  this he would be as handsome as he  is strong.

"It  is amusing to sec how the women with  the grey squirrel coals soon tako to  rouge, nnd to black the eyebrows," sh������  said, wilh a, laugh; "I think it is only  necessary for them lo have one good  look at themselves in a mirror while on  the street to sec thc need of this. If  they are unusually endowed with color,  dark ej'cs and hair, their natural looks-  enable them to withstand the unbecoming effects of a mass of dull grey fur;  but there are few women with enough  natural color to lake such liberties with  their appearance. When they realize  how trying the fur is, they come here  to mc in search of the sort of color  that is suited to tlieir hair and eyes.  Women who never thought of using  rouge in their lives before have come  to me" in their grey squirrel coats and  asked me what iu the world they were  to do. To throw away the coats with  all the hundreds invested in them was  out of the question. So they had to bo  made over to suit thc coats., Perhaps I  do not succeed in making them over altogether. But a high color, strongly  marked eyebrows and red lips go a long,  way toward overcoming the deadly neutral tints of the fur."  FEMININE OBSERVER.

Marie Corelli's "Temporal Power" is a  poliemie���������thc arraignment of royalty  and of the Church of Rome in favor of  what the author considers Justice, Truth,  and the Rights of the People.  In the first chapter a prince and heir  'to a throne���������what throne or where tho  scene of the story is laid we nre not informed���������discusses kingship with his tutor.  "Professor," said the prince on one occasion, "what is man?"  "Man," replied the professor, sedately,  "is an intelligent and reasoning being,  evolved by.natural processes of crca.tion  into his present condition of supremacy."  "What is supremacy?"  "Tho state of being nbove or superior  to the rest of nnimnl creation."  "And is he so superior t"  "He is .generally so admitted."  "Is my f ither a man?"  "Assuredly. Thc question is superfluous."  "What makes hhn a king?"  "Royal birth and the hereditary right  to bis great position."  "Then if a man is in a, condition of  supremacy over the rest of creation, a  king is more than a man if he i������ allowed  to rule men!"  "Sir, pardon me! A king ia not more  than a man, but men choose him as their  ruler because he is worthy."  "In what way is he worthy! Simply  because he i������ born, as I am, heir to the  throne?"  "Precisely."  "He might be an idiot or a cripple, a  fool or a. coward���������he would still be  king?"  "Host indubitably!"   .   .   .  "Strange sovereignty!" said the young  prince, "and still stranger patience in the  people who would tolerate it."  Such reasoning leads the young prince  to thc resolve that he will be a man as  well as a king. He resolves to break  through all tho "miserable conventional-  . ism, the sordid commonplace of a; king's  surroundings," and stand for something  more than a dummy. He is married for  state reasons to a princess of a neighboring realm. The situation of a loveless  union is accepted by them; hut the memory of a youthful love-affair that ended  in tragedy because of his rank and the  impossibility of marriage with a "daugh  ter of the people" makes him finally re  bel to some purpose against such conditions. Under the name of Pasquin Le*  ���������roy, a journalist, he joins a band of So*  'Cialist3. He plays the double role of king  -and of revolutionist, and in these two  ���������roles succeeds in learning and correcting the intrigues of his ministers, in "reforming" the press, and in breaking down  /what the author considers the hostile  ,power of the Church of Rome. In a  ���������word, he becomes the king of the people  ��������� ���������the ideal exponent of "temporal power.''  But in attaining this ideal he proves  that, after all, there is something fai  -greater. In the meetings of the Social  ists he meets a woman who is recognized  -as one of their leaders. His love for thi-  -ffomaii comes to be the great influence in  his life. He discovers that he has served  "the people not through an ideal, but  through love. He puts aside the position lie has won, to win her love in return. The climax of the story the author weaves around this motive. The  woman is assassinated' by a jealous lover. According to her wishes, she is set  adrift after death in a ship, after the  old Viking custom, "to sail the seas  alone." On the deck of the helpless  craft that is being driven by storm out  to sea the two rival lovers meet. One of  them kills himself, and.the other���������the  king���������ties himself to the coffin and goes  ���������down with the ship.  Such, in brief, is the story. But in  .Miss Corelli's work it is not the story  that, counts. Her success is sensationalism. Here, for example, is what sho has  to say of the press:  "Originally the press in all countries  ���������was intended to be the most magnificent  institution of lhe civilized world���������the  voice of truth, of liberty, of justice���������a  voice which in its clamant utterances  could be neither bribed nor biassed to  ���������cry out false news. Originally such was  meant to be its mission; but nowadays  what, in all honesty and frankness, is  the press? What was it, for example, lo  this king, who from personal knowledge  was able to practically estimate and  -enumerate the forces which controlled it  ���������thus: six, or at'the most a dozen, men,  .the .proprietors and editors of different  newspapers sold in cheap millions to the  .people. Most .of these newspapers were  formed into companies; and the managers issued "shares" in the manner of tea  merchants and grocers. False news, if  of a duly sensational character, would  sometimes send up shares iu thc market;  true information would equally on occasion send them down. . . And, concerning the people who wrote for these  newspapers���������of what calling and election  _._wcro t hey.? _Male_and female, young and  old, tliey were generally of a semi-edu-"  cated class, lacking ail distinctive ability  ���������men and women who were on the average desperately poor and desperately  dissatisfied. To earn daily bread they  naturally had to please the editors sot  in authority over them; hence their expressed views and opinions on any subject could only be counted as nil, being  written not independently, but under the  absolute control of their employers."  So much for tho press���������the "weathercock of speculation," as it is called a few  pages further on. In her ideas on thc  Church of Rome the author makes thoroughly good the promise in lier earlier  novels. The question is not whether one  agrees with or condemns these attacks  on thc Church of Rome, on thc press, on  tho Jews, on all the various topic3 that  Miss Corelli discusses in the course of a  novel. The point is that the melodramatic way in which she expresses her exaggerated ideas is her most picturesque  attribute as a novelist. As in this novel,  most of the discussions could be omitted.  But if they were, there would only ba  left a melodramatic stoi-y with only one  unusual way of committing suicide not  mentioned in the author's former work.

'That is an evil tale of a very degrading character,' he said. 'It is not  fitting that such a story should be told,  far less acted, more "specially in the  presence of Indies!'' And when he was-  informed that thc incident was historically accurate, that only servcd: to in-  crcaso the gravity of his disapproval.  'That such a thing should have happened  is very shameful,' he said, 'nnd surely it  wero better to suffer it to be forgotten.  Why revive these ancient scandals? And  why should our pity be asked for folk  so utterly depraved?'"  In ea. indignant editorial, the De3  Vei&ef "Register and Leader" leeently  ���������"���������marked: "The lady (?) who ynaterday  called the attention of another to our  patched breeches, whereat both laughed  so heartily, is informed that a new pair  will be purchased when lier husband's  bill is settled, lt has been due nearly a  year. Don't criticize a printer's dress  too closely while you are wearing silk  with money due us. Tell your husband  to send us $10.7S, and save the cost of a  lawsuit. We need another pair of pants."  Among the new uses to which paper is  being put nre artificial teeth and "uppers" for boots nnd shoes. The old saying, "There is nothing like leather," may  some time bo changed to "There's nothing like paper." At this very moment a  substantial business firm in Boston* is  considering a proposition to take up, the  work of manufacturing paper hate. By  and by a high hat, dress suit and shoes,  rivaling patent leathern, all made of paper, may be considered quite thc correct  thing. Thc paper age may astonish the  .world to a greater degree than any that  have preceded it.  In the center ef a. piece of Canadian birch timber, which recently arrived at High Wycombe, Eng., was  found a young birch tree, 2 1-2 inches in  diameter. It had escaped the saw, although the piece of wood was only three  inches in thickness. The young birch  had enjoyed an independent growth, and  it is supposed that years ago a seed fell  into a hollow part of the old tree and  developed into a sapling, forcing its way  up through tho trunk of its parent. The  hollow was completely filled for a distance of several yards. This curious  freak of nature is to be preserved.  So many members of the staff of the  Mafeking "Mail" were recently incapacitated at one time that the editors felt  obliged to apologize- for the paucity of  news in a certain issue. "We nre sorry,"  they said, "but we could not help it.  One of the staff had rheumatics and partial paralysis of the shoulder, another  has had a few. days' colic, and yet another could not come to work because his  child was dangerously ill. One left without notice and paid two pounds for an  interview with the resident magistrate  in consequence, and another seized the  opportunity to break into teetotalism,  while more tcrriblo still, one of our beat  went and got married."  Tlie Chinese representative at Washington, in a recent despatch to Pekin,  stated that some of the Chinese students in the United States had begun to  cut off their queues and to assume foreign  clothes in lieu of the flowing garb of the  Celestial Empire, as a matter of convenience while residing in the great Republic. His Excellency was instructed  that the queue was the badge of their  nationality, and its abolition an infringement of the laws of the Manchu dynasty. As the result, the students have  been ordered to resume the wearing of  the queue, on pain of being sent back to  China to be punished.  Conversation of Women With Men.  It does not matter how polite a man  may be, woman's instinct tells her when  he "is bored, ajid thet attitude of mind  on his pari stimulates her'to fresh efforts. It is not conversation���������there is  precious little of that, I can tell you!���������  but gossip and story-telling. If the stories are worth telling, lhe man has already heard them, as I said, and remains  bored.

Tittle-tattle has been universal,  I dare say, ever since Eve had a daugh ter,  and, afler all, one does not delight in  discussing burning public questions between courses. It is also true that in  the .Smart Set there does not seem to be  any interest shown in burning public  questions, so far as the ladies are concerned. They find more interest in "spotting" the.exact date at which Mrs. So-  and-So put on a little; rouge, or had her  hair "restored" to a color it never had  been before.���������"Harper's Weekly."    -  Some Freak Hotel Rules.

Mutual consent and mutual contont  are two very different things. A Yankee  firm was dissolved by mutual consent, but the content was limited to  the junior partner. A cloud of debts  had been rising and settling-for weeks  before the partnership was dissolved, and  the senior partner's sentiments may per-  " haps be gathered from a notice which he  caused to be inserted in the local newspaper : "Prom this day forth there's no  such a firm as Gregg & Palmer.- Those  that owe the firm may call on me as  ->oon as they are ready, and those that  the firm owes had better call on him as  quick as they can."

During the winter of 1795-0, when  Judge Samuel Chase was in Philadelphia,  a Mr. Bingham gave a great dinner in  liis honor. The jiulgc wns placed on Mrs.  Bingham's right'hand, and coolly adjusted his spectacles lo view the superb repast, which, unfortunately for him, had  been prepared by a French cook. Having searched in vain for a familiar disli,  he turned to his hostess and remarked:  "A very pretty'dinner, madam; but there  is not a thing on your table I can cat."  With her habitual presence of mind and  urbanity, Mrs. Bingham enquired if sho  could procure anything more suitable to  his taste. "A beefsteak or a piece of roast  beef, madam," was the reply, "will please  me better than anything else." A servant wns called, and a word whispered  in his car, whereupon lie vanished. Very  soon he reappeared, bearing a dish of  _roast_beef,_which Oliase attacked with  vigor and appetiteT Having"fniishedrhe  turned to his hostess, and with a satisfied air exclaimed: "There, madam, 1  have made a sensible and excellent dinner, hut no thanks to your French  cook!"  There is an incident in "Tlie Vultures"  which recalls a very characteristic story  told of Lord Beneonslield at a critical  time whon Russia was threatening Constantinople, and British interposition  was expected every hour.

"I am waiting," replied Carloncr.  "What for?" "1 do not know," he said,  placidly continuing his dinner. In real  life, it happened this way: Sealed by the  side of Lord Bonconslield at thc dinner  table one evening during the Russian intimidation of Turkey, the hostess, a  celebrated lady still alive, having discussed and noil led the political situation  of tho moment, enquired of her distinguished guest in a thrilling whisper,  "What are you going to do?"

It is  easy to imagine how he would have proceeded if there had been a fourth class.  "The second instance was on a steamer  on tho Lake of Geneva.   A well-dressed  Frenchwoman had secured a good seat in  the bow of the vessel, from which she  was admiring  tlio view   between Eviau  and Geneva.   Presently she.went below  to have some coffee.    As she had left  nothing on the seat to mark it as-hcrs.  she very naturally found it occupied on  her return hy a fat Frenchman, whose  dress betokened that he belonged to the  upper class.    On 'hei' representing thai  it was her seat he absolutely declined to  move, and sat stolidly there while she  stormed and  raved  like an  angry  fishwife.   Very soon, however, his-Latin nature prevailed over liis assumed  calm,  'and he began to rave and    gesticulate  with as much vigor and emphasis as thc  lady.    So far there was nothing at all  unusual about thc scene, but at the end  of a few minutes, during which they had  both become white with rage, tho lady  jietunlly_struek_ him_injlhe_fncc with her  delicitely-glovcd'liand.

The latest fad .ot Xew York is  "groin sketching." Ping-pong haa  been retired suddenly in favor of  Ihis latest pursuit, and now the lumber  yards are set to wor'*: supplying caTeful-  ly-plancd ���������'boards on which "the artistio  social belles may gaze, and mayhap find  hidden in the grain a picture drawn by  Nature, which, if she have the true artistic eye, she accentuates with pen and  ink, and brings into full blossom th$  beauties hidden in the lumber.  The.hero of this latest fad���������in fact,  its discoverer, and, in consequence, now  the pet of the society world���������is John  Theodore Bentley, well known to the  -world of art. He hr-s mnde the discovery that in thc grain of all woods there  is a picture. The Bentley eye points it  out, and then it is as plain as the lettering on a signboard. A woman or a man  may see it with half an eye. The Bentley studio looks like a lumber yard, io  littered is it with boards of all lengths  and widtliB. When you turn them over,  however, you find an art gallery. Tho  grain lias_been~"treated," and-stories  are told thereon. They nre all destined  to adorn the places where society  dwclleth.  The craze might not be so bad if production along these lines were confined  to Mr. Bentley alone, or to other artist*  equally as clever, but, not satisfied with  securing specimens of this kind of work,  thc social beaux and belles arc daily  trying to become artists themselves.  Hundreds of young women are hard at  work trying to puz;-.lc out pictures from  pieces of cypress or a chunk of pine.  And some of the results are wonderful  to behold. It will not be very long before we see the "g.v.l.i-sketcliing" face,  though if is hoped that before that lime  society will have discovered something  new.  Saving Expense.

They ran over, hut  before they reached the hotel, to their  utter amazement, Howarth had arisen  from bis sittiDg position and begun to  *viilk down the lane running along  ihelisouth side of tbe Metropole I o  Abbott street.-' 1 Howarth, without  any show of concern, went into' his  hotel and washed, the mud from his  hinds and face. He said he wns  leaning out of the window'and lost  his-^balance and tell, having been  overcome by  dizziness.  Must Pay Up.  Ifc is reported,  says  the   Vancouxei  Ledger, that the Government,, through  Hun. .I. D. Prentice, has  informed  al  those in arrears of dues lariying  their  timber,  under     leasehold    that    tliey  must*  pay up  within   a   certain   time  net    many   monlhs   distant,Or have  theirleases cancel led.    It is  said   that  the notice   has .'c-.-iu-ied   some  coiister-  riation.among those   who  are   heavily  in arrears and holding  large   tracts of  timber 'under   lease.    In   some   rases  then'   lias been   much apparent  anxiety  to   sell      these   large     tr.uts   10  intending   American    investors,     but  although   Hit   demands   for    timber  appear to be great,   the  investors  are  slow in closing deals.     In  som.j   cases  the accumulation   of  dues  in  arrears  run high up in  the   thousands,  and a  nice    cleaning   up   the     government  would make if it either collected   the  fees under  pressure  or  cancelled   the  leases and put them up at auction.
