From  Ground Hog basin have come some of  the very richest specimens of free gold  ore   that'has ever been  exhibited in  British  Columbia nnd   these sample*  have not been ' equalled even   by   the  rich gold ore of Fish Creek.    On Keystone mountain nnd up" Down ie creek  there   are   some, exceedingly   large'  showings of high grade galena   carrying  big   values  in   gold,  that some  day will startle tbe mining men of the  world.

He   will   wait   three  weeks for a bite, and when the exciting  tr.omoni < onses,  he  wrenches his prize  out of the water and feels that ho has  ���������not lived in vain. When yon have once  **ast your bread (or whatever you are  using  for bull)  upon   the  waters,  yon  should   be   prepared   lo   stand   by  and  ut-e the  thins- through  if  it tukes all  Bummer.  ���������No angler expects tn be landlnpc fish  ���������"���������.H the time.    As a matter of fact, the  biggest flsh are never completely landed at all.    If you have ordinary luck  you   will   land    a    few  average-sized  wrigglers,   but    you    can't  very  well  make them any bigger than they are,  ���������and your friends can size up their dimensions at a glance; whereas tho fish  that you hooked out of the water, but  couldn't manage to finally land, grows  every   lime  you   talk  about   It.    This  fish In well  known  to export anglers.  Its dimensions are only limited by the  powers of imagination possessed by the  operator.    Most anglers will  lot it go  with   a  weight    of    about  twenty  to  thirty  pounds    avoirdupois;    and  tho  man who insists upon anything bigger  than   that   must   cliooso   his   audience  very carefully in these knowing times.  I  have   no   sympathy   with   the   man  who hooks a fish that tries to wrestle  him on to his back    as    it    flies out  of  the water,  or that  alms  crushing  blows at his head with Its off-side fin.  And when that kind of man tells you  that he fought three rounds  with  his  prize  in   the  endeavor  to  down   il  so  that he could bring it away with him,  you should not trust yourself to a comment on the narrative.    That kind of  man Is wasting his talents on a modest  Job   like  angling.    He  ought   to   have  been a political Journalist.  When you have cast your line, you  ���������hould sit by quietly and wait for the  results.      That    delightful    old    prig,  Izaak  Walton,  laid it down as a rule  that   anglers   should   avoid   swearing,  lest they be heard and' catch no fish.  tt Is not very clear to me why a man  who has settled down by the water's  eCge for a  day's fishing should want  to swear.    I don't see,  in  any of  the  band-fcooks    on    the  craft,   any  hints  Chat swearln* has ever been considered  balf as useful oa a wriggling worm for  Ashing purposes.   As far as I can see,  a. man  might stand by a stream and  profane    steadily   for-   several   hours  ���������without getting any more bites In consequence.   If a fish will not^bite at a  tempting   hook,   I  should   doubt  very  much.-whether It  will  do  so because  Bomeoody on the hank Is referring to  Its ancestry In disrespectful terms, and  Is casting rather red aspersions on. its  moral character.   The in junction "as to  ���������wearing   appears   quite  unnecessary,  but    dear    old    Izaak    couldn't help  ���������Preaching a little'in:between-;.the, bites'/  After!waiting a little, while and look-  bag  at   your   float,   you   will   probably  Bee it begin to bob up and down.  This  either means that something is biting  at the hook, or else that an empty sardine tin has got mixed up with your  line.   You must let the bobbing go on  till  tha  float  is  dragged  under  water,  and then you pull in, with both hands,  and land the upper portion of a dilapidated boot which someone has left in  the stream by an oversight.  Fishing is  called "the contemplative man's - recreation," -chiefly, I believe, on account of  ths very weird-things that the average  angler Is called npon to contemplate in  the course of. a day's skirmish with the  wonders of the deep.  litany anglers, however, do not recommend U:e practice of sitting down  ������r:d fixing the eye on the bobbing float.  Alter you have thrown out your line,  $*ou open the lunch basket and take  out the first bottle. Then you light a  pipe and take, a glance or so at your  Coat to make sure that it isn't bobbing.  By that time you will be ready for the  second bottle. When the second bottle  lias been properly and truly dealt with,  the float will bob a good deal oftener  than might be expected; but you don't  need to take notice of low conduct like  that. If a gentleman can't sit down  by the water's edge and take a little  light refreshment without being guyed  by a mere decorative quill, it's hard  luck, that's all.  \By the time you have got on to the  fourth bottle, you will begin to realize  what a thoroughly enjoyable sport this  angling business is. You will begin to  wonder at first what bounder has been  =and=to rT>wn-hls=l!r.v* "-alongside���������yours,���������-  as there are two floats to be distinctly  seen. Tou need not, however, bother  . about that. After all, you didn't come  Sown to the water for what you could  satch; but for the Jolly sport of thing.  BVeD, there's the fifth bottle ready  tnyway. and It's thirsty work looking  an and waiting for a bite.  -Of course, there are anglers who can  ������������e carried away by the sport so rnucb  ���������ts to follow a float with their eyes  for a whole day. with scarcely a drop  ai between. These men will wade  through two feet of water, and carry  lhe spare worms In their mouths on  the chance of hooking a wriggler that  ���������tas been hovering about playfully for  tn hour or two. But this Is not the  weather for enthusiasm of any kind;  ind the only thing that you will find  :o admire in these rabid anglers Is  that their per&piring activity makes  fou feel so thirsty that the rest of  Hie bottles can be opened In their  Mght order without waiting. Some  rnglers reel up their line at the close  sf the day's SDnrt and take it back  aome. But after a dozen bottles or so  >f the best, you won't want to be  sothered with any dim nonsense of  that kind. Just kick the whole kit into  :he water, and call for help to enable  zou to get home again without any  trouble. Angling Is a grand sport If  fou know how to take it.���������"Pick-Me-  Vp."  Secrets Revealed by the Camera.  Curious Bits of News.  F  ROBABLY no human Invention  has aided the course of justice  to a greater extent, says London "Tit-Tilts." than the snapshot camera.   It has been Instrumental  In condemning criminals, and has also  been  me. means before.now of saving  Innocent lives.  "  A case In point Is that1 of Alfred  Grayson, nn Knglishmrin who wns living u few years ago at Rio do Janeiro.  Me was accused of the murder of a  Brazilian named Linares, a clerk In the  same ulllce with himself, Thc two were  known to havo quarreled some clays  previous lo tho Sunday on which Linares met liis death. Apparently, how-  over, they hnd made up their difference, for they went out sailing that day  on a small yacht which Grayson had  hired.  In the evening- Grnyson brought thc  dead body ot Linares homo, liis story  was that the latter had fallen from the  mast and fractured his skull. But medical evidence wns of opinion the wound  on the head hnd been made with a  stick or oar. An oar was missing from  the yucht's dingey. The mast-climbing  story, too, sounded Improbable, for the  rigging was nil worked from deck.  Taking the recent quarrel Into consideration, and Grayson's well-known violent temper, the case wns black, indeed, against the Englishman. The  coroner's jury had already, found him  guilty of murder, when a passenger on  a Marseilles steamer, which had arrived In Rio on the Sunday afternoon,  came forward with a now piece of evidence.  This was a snap-shot photograph  laken ns the vessel entered the harbor.  Far away, under tlie cliffs, a tiny vessel was sailing, and against tho white  sail was a dark mark, which a powerful magnifier proved to be a falling  man. By an almost miraculous coincidence the camera had been snapped  Just as Linares fell. The photograph  turned thc scale in Grayson's favor.  Almost equally curious is the way in  which a photograph aided justice in the  Cooper murder case. Cooper was assistant to a young blacksmith named  McKenna in a Lanarkshire village.  Both men were known to be fond of  the same girl. One day Cooper was  found dead on the floor of the smithy.  He had been poisoned with carbolic  acid. McKenna was suspected, but  there was no proof whatever of his  having ever bought or owned any carbolic acid, while Cooper was known to  have purchased, as a toothache remedy, the phial found beside his dead  body. "Death from misadventure" was  the verdict. ���������   "������������������  Shortly afterwards McKenna was arrested. It appeared that an English  tourist provided with a kodak had  passed through the village on the very  morning of the murder. Attracted by  the qualntness of the old forge, he had  taken several snap-shots of it. The  photographer Went on to stay in an  out-of-the-way part of-the Highlands,  and did not hear of Cooper's death for  some days. Then he hastened to develop his plates. Plain in one of the  Pictures were three bottles on a shelf.  Two were boor bottles, the third was  unmistakably one of those fluted blue  glass bottlesjn which poisons are. sold.  It had also a label on it, and though  the wording on this could not be read;  .vet oh the strength of this evidence the  police1 made a. thorough search of Mc-  Kenna's premises. They found the remains of the bottle in question in an  old well, and proved that It had contained carbolic acid. Then McKenna  confessed his guilt.  The more recent developments of  scientific photography must make the  criminal feel less secure than he used  to. One of those thieves who make a  living by. van-robbing got an unpleasant shock one day in March last. He  had safely got off with a tub of butter  which he had stolen from the tail of a  wagon as it was crossing a bridge in  Rochester; N.Y. The deadly witness  against him was-a'photograph taken  by telephotography from the. top of a  neighboring high building.  * A biograph picture of the Grand  Trunk Railway bridge over the Niagara Gorge was recently taken, and,  when developed, thrown upon the canvas at a music hall at Toronto. It was  then noticed for the first time by the  audience that a human body was tossing and spinning in the whirling waters. Search was at once made, and  the body of a missing and much-advertised suicide was discovered, still  caught in the furious suction of the  whirlpool.  Hindu criminals succeed by long  practice in forming a little bag in their  throats into which they can guide jewels when they steal them. Last September a native was arrested for stealing a diamond worth 10,000 rupees from  a Jeweler's window in Calcutta. But as  the evidence was only circumstantial,  and-po3se=3ion-unprovedrhe wouid-lmve=  been liberated had it not occurred to  the police to have an X-ray photograph taken of his throat. Tliat  showed the gem safely hidden in the  little sac. The thief was sentenced to  two years' Imprisonment, but he still  refuses to give up the diamond.  The Roentgen-ray photography has  also been Instrumental In adding several thousand pounds to the customs  revenue of Buenos Ayrcs within the  last year. Valuable Jewelry on which  no duty was being paid was known to  be coming Into the country In letters.  It Is, however, Illegal to open letters or  stamped packages, so the law-breakers were unchecked. At last. In June,  1300, several registered letters and  packages were examined under X-ray*  in the presence of the Argentine Postmaster-General. Sixty-six suspected  packages contained ������4,000 worth of  Jewelry, and were, of course, all confiscated.  It Is said that ' >re Is now little hops  of discovering an unknown First Folio  Shakespeare, as all tho libraries of  England have been ransacked. Nevertheless whenever n First 15olio comes t.>  the surface and is sold at auction the  search beslns anew. No wonder! The  copy sold in London thu other day  brought $S,G00.  A pension worth while is- that lo be  enjoyed by J.

He will be paid  ono thousand dollars n month till tho  end of the year and a pension of five  hundred: dollars a month thereafter as  long as he lives.  Otanl Kozul, a young Buddhist priest  who is kinsman to the Mikado, Is about  to leave England, whero he has been  for some time past, and will come to  America to still further study Christianity and Chrlstlnn institutions.

The captain of mi ocean steamer Is  often warned of the proximity of Icebergs by the men In the engine-room.  When a ship enters water considerably  colder th: n, that through which it ha:i  been going its propeller, runs faster,  and as such water surrounds the vicinity or icebergs for many miles thc  engineers know that when tlio propeller's action is greatly accelerated without any Increase of the steam power  icebergs may be expected. Of course,  the thermometer is the most useful Indicator of icebergs.  A curious custom exists in the Prussian  royal  family  of selecting  every  July a half dozen deserving young couples too poor to marry, and to have  them wedded In the garrison church at  Potsdam   on   the   anniversary  of   the  death of Queon Louise of Prussia. After the ceremony each bride receives a  gift of a sum equivalent to about $115  and   a   handsome  family  Bible. ., The  function took place, as usual, a short  time ago, in the presence of Princess  Margarethe,    the      eldest    unmarried  daughter of the Prussian royal family.  Some time ago the old trystlng. oak  In Harthill Walk; so frequently mentioned In "Ivanhoe," was. felled to thc  ground in order to preserve the trunk.  The tree was one of the oldest in England, and Is described by Scott as beings  venerable when siege was laid to the  castle of Torquilstone.   The tree stood  on the estate of the Duke of Leeds,  whose agent, Mr. Mozey, is devoted to  Scott.   By his instructions the tree was  taken down, and the trunk will be preserved on the lawn In front of Mr. Mo-  zey's house.    A young oak tree is tn  be planted by the Duchess of Leeds on  the site of the trystlng tree.  The meaning of the word "humph"  was recently the subject of judicial decision in the Irish Court of Appeal. Mr.  Justice Madden and Mr. Justice Boyd  held that "humph," as used by Sir  Walter Scott and Mi.ss Austen in their  novels, was an expression of dissent,  while the Lord Chief Justice and Mr.  Justice Burton inclined to the conclusion that "humph" only meant a "dissatisfied condition of the mind." Thc  Court of Appeal has now decided tha (  the word Is "an expression of doubt oi  dissatisfaction," or, as Lord Justice  Walker:'. put It, in the words of the  "Century Dictionary," "a grunt of dissatisfaction."

T  HE historic  site of  the Calcutta  Black  Hole    is   'being  worthily  dealt with by Lord Ourzcm.   The  ugly brick and plaster g-ite loading   from   Dalhousle   Square   into   the  Post-ofllce precincts Is, it Is understood,  being demolished, immediately in front  of the historical spot.   A gate of light  and elegant ironwork is being erected  in Its place.   Immediately behind this  gate,  through  which  even  when shut  anyone enn see, Ills Excellency has had  tho square site of the lllack Hole paved  with  polished  black  marble,  specially  ordered from Italy,   This space Is surrounded  by   a  low  iron   railing  on  a  slight stone plinth.    On the rod brick  wall of the Post-office building above  there is art inscription, in gilt letters on  black marble, visible from the street,  describing the site and Its restoration.

What She Said.  A curious phenomenon was observed  at the village of Lo Ghazll. in the  French Alps, recently. One day, towards evening, the- inhabitants were  disturbed by a loud rumbling In the  vicinity of Mont Farand which increased in intensity. Looking toward  the scene of the disturbance, the villagers were further startled by seeing  bright flashes of fire. At .first the unusual spectacle was attributed lo volcanic agencies, and a party of civil  engineers set out to examine the cause  of the phenomenon. They discovered  that the intense dry heat had caused  the^ehalk-Toeks-on-the^scmmtt^of^the  mountain to crack and to break away  in alL directions. These rocks had descended the mountain like an avalanche, and being thickly, veined with  silex, in descending they had struck  one another with terrific force, scattering brilliant showers of sparks In all  directions, with such rapidity that they  resembled one single sheet of flame.  ��������������� TILLY, realizing how difficult It Is  f*     for the ordinary man'to manage  even  an    ordinary    wife,. Max  O'ReH comes forward with some carefully-considered advice.   "If your wife  loses her temper, -keep cool as a ��������� cucumber and  enjoy the scene.    If you  are jealous, do not let her see It, for it  will  make her proud.    If she is Jate  don't scold.   Tell her it is much  better to have her late than not at all.  Next time go without her.   The cure is  Infallible."    On the virtue of Industry  M. Blouet Is equally emphatic.  His advice practically Is to assume this virtue If you have it not.    "If you have  nothing to do/' he writes, "tell her you  have to be very ibusy all the morning,  and  'will she  be kind enough  to  see  you   are   not   disturbed?"    Then   lock  the door, light a cigar, and take a.paper or a book, and bg-fearfully busy all  the time."   -Next in -this charming code  of ethics comes the advice to never re- '  mind yo-     wife of a favor done,  for  gratitude, like love, ia not to be had for  the asking.   Never -ask your wife for  the return of a loan.   She would think  It shabby of you.   If she should return  It (there are some extraordinary  women), give it back to her in tho shape  of a jewel.   This will cost you nothing,  as you had made up your mind to the  loss of that loan."   A hint to notice a  woman's new clothes, and to treat her  with the same respect and politeness  everywhere as accorded to any other  lady acquaintance, is followed by a few  emphatic  remarks  on   the  "ethics  of  deshabille."    "Shame her by the irre-  proachablenesa   of   your  own   appearance"   Is  the  prescription for  dealing  with tho woman who appears in curlers.   "If she is intelligent she will take  the  hint   at  once.    Lc-t   your   neglige  at home be as carcful'iy put on as your  best  dress  coat.    Love  feeds  on  even  such trilles as t:.o>e in the case of people of a reflnoi and artistic temperament."  Cheap Meals.  It wasn't a smoking compartment,  but they were using it for that purpose all the same, and she was too modest to object. By and by the two men  got Into a discussion over :he woman  question, and at last one of them, an  unregenerate bachelor, appealed to the  lady thus:  "Do you think there will be man ,'n  heaven, miss?"  She blushed.  "No!" she said. "They will r/ant to  go somewhere where they can smoke."  The discussion stopped; so did the  smoking.  To be acceptable to the aristocracy,  one must be an ass or a millionaire.  "About the cheapest restaurant I  sver visited or read about," said a man  lately returned from Kngiand, "was a  dining saloon In the Whitechapel district of London, where a relishing and  fairly substantial meal may be had for  s. halfpenny, or one cent in our money.  This cheap repast Is not served up In  the shape ot a cut from a Joint and  two! vegetables. It Is a big brown pie,  very juicy and very hot. The absence  .if beefsteak Is evident when you cut  the pie! but you find inside a. liberal  sprinkling of sheep's liver, onions and  turnips, and a plentiful supply of gravy. .For a haltpeuuy extra two slices  of bread and a oup of tea arc supplied. Between the hours of twelve  and two the poor and hungry from alt  parts of the East End of the city flock  to the dining-room. Most of the patrons are shoeblacks, penny toy men,  sostormongers, nnd now and then  young clerks whoso salaries will not  permit thorn to Indulge In a more cost-  y dinner." . ,    .i:rA%PV*f<fM  Cricr.tal Compliments.  An amusing trait in human nature is  the mutual contempt with which nations regard each other/ It is a trait,  which can be traced back as far as  history extends. The Greeks caiied  the outside world barbarians; the Romans scoffed at the Greeks,; and the  Egyptians i.-arded other people as no  better than slaves.  In our days the contempt we exhibit  for-Qrlenta.1 natlons-lsmild compared-  with their contempt for us. The Turks  are but little behind thc Chinese In this  respect, their ordinary designation of  a Christian being a "dog."  When the first Dutch ambassador  was sent to the Porte, he visited the  Sultan.  "What does the dog -want?" asked  tho Su.tan.  This was translated In a speech full  Df ornate Oriental compliments, ar������l the  ambassador replied In the same strain.  "Let the dog feed," answered the  3uitan; "and when fae dog Is fed, kick  the dog out."  The ambassador wan delighted with  the Sultan's comj>llments. The Sultan  felt that be had held his own, and the  treaty was signed next day.  It turns out that the'lnte Are In the  3ultan's palace was the result of a plot  among the ladles of the harom.

When Boston was three years old, the  word "coasting," in the sense of sliding  3own an Inclined plane, was urerl for  the flrst time by the Court of AsHlst-  ance.

'According to "Harper's Magazine," a  certain teacher of English In a school  of high rank in hor native State, Mississippi, who, in spite of hor vivacity  In convov tlon, Is perhaps, if anything, too fastidious In her choice ot  words, was spending the summer at  the Now York Chautauqua. Her flow  of spirits made hor the delight of the  dlnlng-tnble at which she was llrst  seated, but nt tho end of a fortnight  she was moved by her landlady to another place. A lady from Boston who  had been sitting opposite the Southerner expressed her regret at tho  change. "I am so sorry you are going  to leave us," she said, with warmth;  "we have all enjoyed your dialect so  much."  Mr. Baring Gould tells n story about  the Vlcnr ot Helium!, Cornwall, nnd  his neighbor, the Vlcnr of Bllsland.  The former was going to London, and  hoped that tho Archdeacon of Cornwall could be Induced to take his service on the Sunday following so that  ���������he might stay away a few extra days.  He left It to his neighbor at Bllsland  to negotiate the Ilttlo arrangement,  and asked lo be Informed how things  went by telegram. All went well; and  the Vicar of Bllsland gave In a telegram at the nearest office: "The Archdeacon of Cornwall is going to Helland.  You need not return." But whon delivered In London the words wore thus  divided: "The Archdeacon of Cornwall  Is going to Hell; and' you need not return."  A story of a "joke" played in Vienna  on   Mascagnl,  tho  composer,  who   Is  soon to visit the United States, is going  the round  of the  newspapers  in  Italy, where it has created an extremely bad impression.    The distinguished  Italian was the guest of honor at n  soiree given  by  the  theatrical  artists  of    the   Austrian    capital,    and    ox-  pressed regret that    he    was  unable  cither to speak or understand German,  whereupon   an   actor   of  comic   parts  arose and addressed him very solemnly,  saying: "Most Illustrious maestro, you  have  given   to   the   world   'Cavallerla  Kusticana,' which Is a musical freak."  At this point Mascagnl also rose, and  warmly shook the orator's hand.   "You  have no other talent than that of self-  advertisement."    Another  effusion   or,  the part of the composer.   "In a word,  you are merely a genial sausage." Prolonged   iipplause,   at   which--Mascagnl  could scarcely master his'emotion.  Adelina  PattI  Is,   as  all   the  world  knows, one of the most charitable women in the world, and nothing pleases  her more than to do a good turn "on  the quiet,"  as  she herself  laughingly  puts it.    Last winter she was staying  for a few days In an Isolated village at  the extreme end of Yorkshire.   To kill  the monotony of the place,  the gro.it  singer went one night to a concert got  up in aid of a certain village institution.    Not half the performers turned  up.    Seeing the difficulty in which the  chairman and committee were placed,  Madame  PattI   (Incognito,   of  course)  offered to oblige them with a song or  two if they cared about it.   After sh"  ���������had rendered, in -her own glorious way,  three   of    her   sweetest    ballads,   the  chairman approached her, and, in solemn  tones,  thanked  her:   "Well, Miss,  you've done oncommon well; and, although  'Arry  'Ock,   the  juggler,  who  thinks nowt of takln' 'old of 'ot pokers  and a-swallowln' needles, couldn't turn  up, yot you've pleased us very considerable. Miss!"-  Colonel Oslo was the present King of  Italy's "governor" for very many  years, when, as Prince of Naples', hi?  charge was a delicate lad. Colonel  Oslo's strict regime has been very severely criticized, buL that thc King remembers him with roipect, if not with  affection, is proved by his having conferred the hereditary title or count upon him on the occasion ot the birth of  the Princess Yolanda. One day a request came from a well-known personage for the young prince's autograph,  to be added to a-collection containing  that of his grandfather and his father.  The prince was about to comply, when  the colonel said, sharply: "Certainly  not; what value has the signature of  an insignificant boy who does not even  know how to write properly?" For  some act of disobedience a little later  the prince was brought before his ���������'governor," who exclaimed: "If I were the  King I would cut off your head." "And  I will cut off yours when I am king,"  defiantly replied tho lad. His punishment is unrecorded, but, instead of  cutting off his tyrant's head when that  day came, he has ennobled him.  During the famous Douglas and Lincoln debate and subsequent campaigns  the point was frequently brought out  by the supporters of "tho Little Giant"  that Mr. Lincoln had served only a  single term in Congress, but that Senator Douglas had enjoyed for years a  ^natiQn1aUrcputaUoii.=ij'his^poInt,=says-  a writer in "Lippincott's," was urgsd  In a heated discussion between an ardent supporter of Douglas and a German voter who favored Lincoln. Fin-  ally the former, thinking to overwhelm  his opponent, said: "Who is this Lincoln, anyhow? Nobody ever hoard of  him until Senator Douglas brought him  i*ilo notice by holding a joint debate  with him. Senator Douglas, on the  other hand, ii* a. great statesman. Why,  ho has had his eye on the Presidential  chair for the last ton years!" "Vot Is  dot you say?" 'was tho reply. "You  Htiy Moostor Dooglas havo hat his eye  on der Breeldont chair for ton years?"  "Ves, that Is Just what I said." "Veil,  you shoost tell Meester Dooglas if ho  vlll keep his eye on dot chair shoost u  leedle vile longer he vlll see old Abo  Lincoln slttln*; down In It." This closed  the debate, amid a roar of laughter  from the bystanders.  A Pathetic Appeal.  HE following    plea   for Judicial  mercy, sent to "Law Notes" by  a correspondent, will be found  brimful   of   pathos:   Ex   parte  Samuel Rice.  To the Hon. H. A. Sli.-upe, Judge of  the City Couil of Birmingham, In Equity: Your petitioner, Samuel Rice, of  Mobile, Ala., would deferentInlly represent that, on January 10, in the year of  grace ISIU, your honor dissolved I lie  eonnubl.il'ties theretofore existing bo-  tween petitioner and his consort, Annie  Rice, granting hor a divorce a vinculo  ct matrimonii, with tho beatific privilege thereunto annexed of marrying  again, ti privilege, It goes without saying, sho availed herself of wilh an  nlncrlly of spirit nnd n fastidious levity  disdaining pursuit; but on this vltnl  point your honor extended to petitioner only the charity ot your silence.  Petitioner has found in his own experience a truthful exemplification ot  Holy Scripture, "that it Is not woll for  man to be alone," and seeing nn inviting opportunity to superbly ameliorate his forlorn condition, by a second  nuptial venture, ho finds himself clr-  cumvallnted by an Ossa Pellon obstacle, which your honor alone has  power to remove.  His days rapidly verging on the sere  and yellow loaf, the fruits and flowers  of love all going; the worm, the canker, and the grief in sight, with no one  to love and none to caress him, petitioner feels an indescribable yearning,  longing and heaving to plunge his adventurous  prow  once  more   Into  tho  vexed waters of the sea of Connublal-  lty:   Wherefore,   other  refuge  having  none, and wholly trusting to the.ten-  dor benignity and sovereign discretion  of your honor, petitioner humbly prays  that In view of the accompanying flats  of a great cloud of reputable citizens,  giving him a phenomenally good name  and fair fame, you will have compassion  on  him,  and relieve him  of the  hymeneal  disability  under  which  his.  existence   has   become   a ^burden;   by  awarding  him  the like   privilege    of  marrying again;  thus granting him a  happy  issue  out   of  the  Red  Sea  of  troubles Into which a pitiless fate has  whelmed him.   For, comforting as the  velvety touch of an  angel's palm  to  tho fever-racked brow, and soothing as  the strains of an Aeolian harp when  swept by the fingers of the nlghtwlnd,  and  dear as  those ruddy drops that  visit  these  sad ; hearts  of    ours,, and  sweet as sacramental  wine to  dying  lips, it Is when life's fitful fever Is ebbing to its close to pillow one's aching  head on some fond: wifely bosom and  breathe his life out gently there.  And In duty bound to attain the pos-  sroillty of compassing such a measureless benediction, petitioner will, pray  without ceasing, in accents as loud  and earnest as ever issued from celibatarian lips.  SAMUEL RICE, Petitioner.  Hamlet's Island.  w  TLLIAM E. CURTIS has  been visiting the Island ot,  Elslnore, the scene of the  tragedy of Hamlet, which  stands on! the northern  point of tho Danish peninsula. He  nays that although the present cnstlo  of Kronborg wns not built for rive hundred years after tlio time of Hamlet,  tho numerous guides will point out the  Platform where Hamlet played before  tbo king, and tho rampart upon  which the ghost walked. The fact  that Ophelia does not appear in  tho account of the monk named  Saxo-Grnmmntlcus, who first told  the story of Hnmlot nnd from  which Shakespeare took his plot, does  not Interfere with tho Imagination or  the poets nnd guide-book writers. They  t the'  A Familiar Odor.'  Senator William E. Mason ot Illinois  Is a good campaigner and a great  stump speaker, relates the New York  "Times." HI������ wit and eloquence are  not of the most refined order, but they,  are Just the thing to catch a crowd.  Mason is never at a loss for a retort,  and enjoys being Interrupted In a  speech. During one of tils campaigns  he was getting his usual share of interruptions in a speech he was delivering.  Mason was enjoying himself, and was  making a great hit with the majority  of the crowd. There was one man,  however, who tangled Mason up somewhat. TJiis man had Imbibed more alcohol than was good for him. He was  on the outskirts of the crowd, and he  was asking Mason questions In a thick  voice. Tho Senator could not catch the  quostions.and as he did not at first know  what was the matter with the fellow, he  stopped and attempted 'to catch the  question each time, lie always failed,  and this led to several awkward pauses.  At last Mason became Irritated. Thc  next time an Interruption came from  the Intoxicated one, Mason asked:  "Who are you?"  "Don't you know me, Billy?" came  the answer, in maudlin and swaying  tones.  Mason paused. "My friend," said he,  in a measured and metallic voice, "I  don't recognize your face, but your  breath is familiar."'  point out tho place In the mont ot  old castlo whero she was drowned, and  In thc park there Is a spring which Is  chrlstonod In her honor.    Near-by Is.,  another spring that bears the name of  Hamlet, and in a beautiful sequestered  dale is his burial place, marked by a  cairn of stones, partially moss-covered,  and   a  rude  shaft  of  grant I e   which  boars the inscription, "Hamlet's Qrav."  It Is the favorite Joke of scoffers to  ask tho guides "where the grave used  to ho," because, according to traditions  that are said to be well founded, It has  occupied its present site less than a  century,.and was originally In the private  grounds  of a  merchant  at   the  other end of tho  town.    This gentleman became so annoyed by the pilgrims who came to the place that he  told the town council he would pay tho  entire expense of fixing up a more appropriate  grave   for   Hamlet   If   thoy     ���������'.  would designate a proper location  in  one of the parkas.    He did as he pro-,  mlsed.    The result has been satisfactory all around.   He is not annoyed by  sight-seers, nnd the present location-is  much moro convenient to the public;  but, upon the payment of an extra fee  the guides will point "out the original - ������������������  grave. However, Hamlet's tbmb, Ophelia's drowning-place, the rampait where  the ghost walked, and the grassy plain  which Hamlet used as a Btage for his  celebrated outdoor performance, are a  great attraction to tourists and support  several  hotels.      They  have   brought  much  money to Elslnore,  and publlo      ;  interest in them still continues.    Notwithstanding the doubt that has been  cast upon their authenticity, all of the .  great tragedians have- been' there. Including Bernhardt, Irving, Forrest and  Booth, and largely  through contributions from  the dramatic profession a  statue  has  been  erected  by  Nfelsine  Petersen, a Danish artist.   Everything  about the town is named after Hamlet  or Ophelia, just as everything at Strat-  ford-on-Avon  is  named  after Shakespeare.     There   Is   a   Hamlet   bicycle  and a Hamlet hotel, a Hamlet biscuit,  and a Hamlet cigar, Hamlet perfumery  and Hamlet hams, Hamlet butter and.  Hamlet dressing-cases and' traveling-  bags.    Ophelia does not fare so- welln  although    there    are    several    places   ,f  named In hoc honor.   The ghost has_hls>  promenade, but the king and queen{ar*  entirely  Ignored.

An' American once said to a German  who'clalmed that he ha.d the real New  England sense of humor, "Did you  ever hear the joke about the guide In  Rome who showed some travelers two  skulls of St. Paul, one as a boy, and  the other as a man?" "No," said the  German, beginning to anticipate a good  story. "Tell me at once, meln friend,'  dat Joke."  P. A. Mlnakoff hag made ah exhaustive study of the nails of the hand,  some of the results of which he regards as of medico-legal importance.  Among other things, he asserts that  the nails of the right hand In a right-  handed person are wider by from one-  half to two millimetres than the'corresponding nails on the left hand; while  In left-handed persons the reverse obtains, and in the ambidextrous the nails  are of equal sl':e on the two hands. The  thiacness' of the nails diminishes progressively from the thumb to the little  flnger. /���������>  =TKe Moonstone=  ==========^phirkx=========  X  By Hn. & N.

The reason of that was, I wanted  bo very much to say certain things to  ' you which I had no business to say ifl  .were to bo unfortunate, that. I' dared  Hot trust myself near you till my atTuirs  nvere more settled. But, oh! thc struggle it's been to keep away."  Winifred did- not answor. She - oould  not if she would. A ilaiuo seemed to  ���������run through hor veins. She knew what  .were the things that he wanted so much  to say to hei-���������sho thought that she  knew.

Yoii'remember I told you  that' I'd como to England a few inoiuha  . ago on n mission? Woll, now I'm in a  fair way to accomplish it���������if it's.to bo  done at all."  i CHAPTER XXIX. ' .  The Burdou. of Revenge.  Winifred listened with excitement and  deep interest; yet there Was a queer little pain in hor heart, lie lutd said nothing yet of what she had guessed that he  meant to say. Perhaps sac bad been  mistaken. Perhaps he had intended  something quite different.  . "Before I can talk of what is nearest  my. heart, far nearer now than tho mission for which I was brought up," he  .went on, "I must confess to you what  the work is I Dante hero to do. It was  to btdag a^muiderer to justice���������to revenge too ruin ho wrought���������; in two lives.  It is that for which I have lived, until  lately.' But now another interest has  {lushed it aside���������pet haps it's a sin to let  t d* that���������but I can't help it. Tlio new.  Interest-is too strong for we���������stronger  than my soul. lias a man a right to  .love a woman and tell her so while' there  is such a burdou on his Ufa!"  "A burden of revenge!" Winifred  asked, slowly. "Must the man bear it?  Can revenge ever lis cnnoblodt"  "Yes a thousand times, yes!" ho cried,  almost fiercely. "Jiven for lore it couldirt  be given up, for that would bd a wrong  to tko dead."  *'ft 'isn't revenge for the -man's own  wrongs, then!"  "ior those who gave him his life���������his  father and his mother. Do you say that  he must not tell a woman of his love  while he has such a mission to work  out? If you do say so I ahull know that  you are right."  "No���������I don't say that; I can't aay it,"  whispered Winifred.  "Then���������you know, don't you, what I  long to ask? You're all tho world to  .me, and ^heaven, too. Is it possible that  you could learn to care for me a little,  that you could. forgive me the dark  ' things I must keep in my mind���������-"  s. '.'I have learnt already,' the girl broke  ia, "to care���������not a littlo, but more' than  I can tell. I learnt when we were partners. Since we flrst saw each other you  have been my knight. Bvon at the very  first I. thought differently of you from  any other man."  "It seems impossible," cried Newcome.  "That you���������such a girl as you���������should  even think of a shabby beggar "  "You were a gentleman.. What can a  van be more? Oh, I- wish you'd told me  that���������you liked me in Brighton."  "What,a brute I should have been if  I had! It's'bad enough now. You 'ought  to marry a millionaire."  Winifred shuddered, and drew away a  .little from ths arms that'held her tight.'  "Oh���������don't apeak to me'of millionaires!"  Newcome was quite willing not to.  There were.only two persons in the  ..world worth talking of as that moment  ���������herself and' himself���������and they, talked  ef those two unceasingly, until, Dick was  heard at the door, and they began hastily to speak of tho weather, or. the first  subject that came into thou: heads.  Ifewooms and Dick wero somehow, introduced to eaoh other, though it was  ������lee.r that Dick did not at all understand  who Baron von Zellheim was. -They had  aot had many words together when  Winifred's lover turned to her with a  look that only she could read. "There  was so much to talk of at first," he said,  "that I forgot something important; But  ns it concerns your brother, perhaps it's  just as well I waited till he came. Now  be can answer for himself .Mr. Gray, I've  heated from your sister that you write,  I daa't know whether if s ia your line,  orwkather you haven't something you  like better to do; but, anyway, I can  offer you a secretaryship it. you'll havo  it, with a salary of seven guineas a  week."  "By Jove, that is good of you!" ex-  alaimad Dick, who had a hearty and  pleasant manner, which endeared him to  strangers. ''I'll be only too thankful to  make it 'in my Una,' and do the very  best I can, for I've had boastly luck lately, as maybe Wlnnip has told you. Is it  you'who .offer me. the position?"  "No," said Newcomo, flushing a little,  as Winifred remembered afterwards. "It's  a friend of mine, a richer man than I  am���������a very good fellow, not young,  lie's engaged to-night," continued New-  come. "But will you dine with me tomorrow evening at tho Savoy Ilptel- at  eight,' and go round with mo to ,ihiy  rooms afterwards to -��������� meet him ?"  "Delighted!" oricd Dick, thankful that  he had not pawned his evening clothes,  as he had been tempted to'do lately.  "And'I wonder if you would both dine  with me somewhero to-night," went on  Newcome, "just we throe alone? Do  say 'yes,' Miss Gray."  Winifred did say 'yo������' with joy. It  was so wonderful, so almost unnatural  to feel joy. Sho basked in it, she revelled; in it, thrusting all: the old troubles aside as if tbey had ceased to exist.  Presently Dick loit them alone together,  and Newcome ventured to say something  which had stuck in his throat before.  Wouldn't Winifred lot him lend her  money���������heaps of money? It was for  that he bad rejoiced in his luok. If she  would not take it what he had would be  worthless to him. Sho had given herself  to him now, and surely he had some  rights over her. Besides, she must remember their compact. He had borrowed from her because sho had promised to'do the same from him when he  should bo in a position to lend. That  time had come now; ho had thousands,  and he would claim her promise.  Of course Winifred said no; but New-  come would not accept hor refusal. He  was-urging- his-point-whon_Diok_came  back, and had succeeded so far as to  make the girl" consent to think it over.  They dined together at a quiet place,  and even the presonoo of a third person  could hot damp their hapinoss. They  looked into each other's eyes while Dick  ate the flrst good dinner which, he announced, he had tasted for an age.  Next morning came flowers for Winifred. Sho had never loved flowers so  well before. Some she took to hor mother, kissing their sweet faces before she  parted with them; but others she wore  whon Hope Nowcome came to her again  in thc afternoon. She was alone, as on  the day before, and her lover helped cut  bread and butter for tea; and they called  each other ."partner," as thoy had in thc  strange days at Brighton.  -That night Winifred sat up to wait for  Dick when he should come homc^from  his dinner at thc Savoy nnd the engagement at Newcomo's rooms afterwards.  She longed to hear all about what had  happened, and what sort of man her  brother's employer had turned out to be.  CHAPTER XXX.      .   : i  Mncairc's Secretary.  Half-past oleven came and stiU no  Dick. But just as the clock of St. Mary's  (jkurehatruek twelve the door, was flung  open, and Diak entered, whistling the  lntast music-hall air. Winifred ran to  meet him.  "Oh, Dick, you'Jl wake everybody in  the house," she said warningly.  "Well," he echoed. "My appointment's  all right. And I'm to live in tbo handsomest house in this old village."  "What���������you wou't be at hums? Oh,  mother will be disappeint-od. Still, it  cau't be help-id. Anyhow, you'll be m  London."  "Fer a while. And then I'm /ping  abroad witk^-Ulm. Guess whe. \#u've  heard jnsjiamc a thdusond Mates. Tliiak  01 on* ot the most important men m  England. By Jove! von Zellheim has  some swell friends."  "No; financier; sporting-man ��������� all  round good fellow, I'll bet. And by  Jove, he may do something for you.  Seems he's interested in theaters. Got  so much money he doesn't know where  to put it all.   But guess, Winnie."  The girl had grown suddenly pale. "1  ���������can't" she faltered. "For Heaven'*  ���������ake, tell me���������quickly."  "Well, I'm private secretary, if you  please, to nobody less than Mr. Lionel  Macalre."  With a cry Winifred sprang to her  feet. "No, Dick���������no I" she gasped. "Say  you're only joking."  "Then I should toll a Ue. I'm in dead  earnest. What makes you look so  queer?"  The girl stood still, pressing a hand  against each temple, her bright hair  pushed back.  "Did you say that���������Lionel Mncaire  was Hope Newoomo'a���������Baron von Zell-  heim's friend?" she aaked.  "Bather. They're no end of chums.  Maoaire calls Von Zellheim 'my dear  boy,' and pats him on the shoulder. He  thanked Von Zellheim for bringing us  together, whioh it seems had all been arranged between them for some time be*'  fore it came off. And I can tell you I  have to thank young Zellheim, too. This  will be the making of me, Win."  - "It will be tho undoing of us all," she  moaned. "Oh, Heavens to think that he  should be false, too."  Dick stopped in his walk and stared  at her., "I don't know what you're driving at, Sis," ho said.  - She seemed to be looking at him,  though her eyes, dark with pain, saw  nothing save Hope Newcome's face,  which rose before them as if to mock  her with its sham nobility, its sham  truth, its sham love. But it was not for  Dick to know the bitter: anguish, the  shame that made her writhe.  "It doesn't matter," she answered him  dully,-almost sullenly.   "You can't possibly be Mr. Macaire's secretary, Dick���������  that's all."  "Can't?" he repeated.   "My dear girl,  rcu must be mad. Tbo thing's settled,  go to work early to-morrow morning.  Seme time this winter he and I are off to  the Riviera and Monte Carlo together;  think of that I"  "I oan't. think of it It won't Jbear  thinking of. For Heaven's sake sit down  and write a letter saying that���������that you  accepted the offer under a misapprehension���������anything���������only make it dignified  and firm. Oh, Dick, listen to me! The  worst trouble I have.ever known has  come from this man. He has persecuted  me. You weren't told because, though  you're older than I am, you're very-  young in many ways, and it soemed best  not. Even mother doesn't know nearly  all. Because I wouldn't listen to his  hateful -love-making������������������"  "What!" broke in Dick. "He made*  love to you?   I didn't know you'd evor  met him. For. goodness* sake, why  ���������euldn't you take ham? He's no beauty,  but, by Jove! I shouldn't have thought  there was a girl In England who wouldn't  have snapped at the ckanee of being Mrs.  Lionel Maeaire." -  "I would not have taken that chance,"  ���������aid Winifred. "He is a horrible man.  But it was not offered to me. B.umor  says there is a Mrs. MAeaire���������* woman  he married long ago for her money, and  perhaps drove mad, for she's said to be  in an asylum.1'  "You moan, then "  "Oh, Dick, don't . ask me what I  meant"  Dick began walking up and down  again, but his face was very grave, even  sulky. He looked as he felt, personally  injured by his sister's explosion,  ���������Til bet anything you were mistaken,"  he said. "Girls aro so morbid, they're  always imagining queer things���������especially girls bn the stage. They're always  thinking men want to insult them. 1  don't believe poor old Maoaire meant  anything of the sort. He's old���������must  be nearly sixty���������not a bit of that kind.  And why should ho pick you out, anyhow, when there are such a lot of girls  ''in:'.the'' world?"  "Why, indeed?" eohoed Winifred. "But  whether you defend him or not, you certainly won't put me and yoursolf into  his power by "  ".Now you're talking like the heroino  ;.of a melodrama," exolaimed Dick, flushed  with vexation, and looking very boyish,  very handsome. "Tell me straight out  how he injured you."  "He was furious because I spoke my  mind to him, if you must know. I told  him I loathed him���������that he was horrible. He induced- Mr. Anderson to discharge me ���������"  "How do you know that? Did Mr.  Anderson or anyone else tell you so?"  "No.   But I'm sure **  "Ah, there it is. Just as I thought  What's the nest indictment?"  "He���������I believe how that he tried to  kidnap me by hiring a man to bribe the  driver of my cab one night,_ and; "  Dick burst into scornful laughter.  "That's good enough for the Surrey sido,  but"it-won't" do^for-West End-drama!"-  he sneered.   "Next, please."  "What is the good of telling you  things if you won't believe ino? i Oh,  Dick, I swear to.you I'm not mistaken.  Lionel Mncaire is cruel as the grave. If  he evor cared for me he hates mo now,  and he will'never rest till he has had  revsnga. He said he would, 'bring me to  my knees.' For weeks he has been plotting against inc. That company I joined  in Brighton���������so pleased bocause I was to  hnve such a splendid salary and a.lot in  advance���������was really hi3������������������"  "How did you know that? Did he tell  you bo?" .  "No. But the manager did. He .told  me that Mr. Mocaire was the backer.  And it wns all got up on purpose to humiliate me. If you wero anyone but my  brother you would have heard tho.gossip, yoii would haye known about the  wicked posters pretending to be pictures  of me. It would have killed mother if.  she hod seen them. I ran" away because  I would not play the part���������and now  that way has fafled Lionel Majsoire is  trying another. ..Just what be means I  can't see yet, but somahpw he expects  to hu������t:throuah you.''  "You seem to think yourself a young  person of some ' importance, my dear,"  retorted Dick, "that one of the biggest  millionaires in the country should be  fretting himself sick to get you 'in bis  power,' as you call it. If this is all a  plot against you, and I'm a mere, figurehead, why, your Hope Newcome Von  Zellheim is in it pretty thick, too."  The taunt was a swOrd in Winifred's  heart. -..With a moan, Ufa* a dove wounded" to the dtath, she covered her face  with her handsand sobbed.  was making a  tremendous fuss about  nothing; and, being a young man with   #������_-_._..,.   ���������j,.

Dick Gray in Clover.  tsi-A- honestly believed that his sister  a very"good opinion  nettled that she should put him aside as  a mere dummy, a cut's-paw by which a  chestnut was to be dragged out of the  fire. Besides, he had -been half frantic  with delight at the thought of so splendid an engagement, and he simply oould  not give up the radiant prospect which  for the Last- few hours had dazzled his  youthful eyes.  He thought Winifred a pretty girl,  and clever enough, but, being her brother, he was unable to realize the fascination sho might possess for other men,  and he was sure that she flattered herself far too much in fancy that a man  like Lionel Macalre should be at such  desperate pains either to win or punish  her.  "I'll ask von Zellheim to come hero,  and you can talk to him," he said when  Winifred continued to cry.  "No!" she ejaculated quickly. "He  must* not come hero. I never wish to see  him again. I shall write to bim myself  to-night and���������tell him so."  "And the reason, tool"  "He -will understand that well enough,  without explanation. Diok, you will  write to Mr. Macairo, won't you? Even  if you think -I'm mistaken, do this for  love of me. Oh, you could not go to  him���������you could not shame me by living  in his house, taking his money 1"  "By Jove, what it is to talk business  with a- girl!" groaned Dick. "They fly  into hysterics. I've given my word to  Macabre to begin his work to-morrow.  He's written to lots of chaps who were  dying for it to say the matter's settled.  I must have money somehow, for mother's sake and yours, as well as my own  "Do you think I'd touch what you  had from that man, or let mother touch  it?" the girl flung at him.  Dick let tho question pass. "I've debts  to pay���������more than you know of. I shall  never get such another chance. Macaire  hinted that if I did well he might think  of me as editor of one of tho papers he  "The one that told lies about your  sister, perhaps!'' cried Winifred, desperately. Never bad she been really angry  with Dick before through all the trying  episodes of their youth together, but  she was trembling and white with anger  now. "  "Maybe, if there were lies, that's the  reason he'll get rid of the present editor, retorted Dick. "Anyway, my whole  career's at stake, and I'd bo a fool to  give it up for a girl's morbid prejudice.  I don't believe������������������*"'���������  "Don't repeat that again," she commanded, her eyes blazing. "I have told  you the truth. You do.not believe me.  You do believe my worst enemy. I can  say no mora as to that. But I do say,  Dick, that if you go to his house you  must not come back hero���������not while you  are in his pay.   And you may tell him  why your mother and sister will not.see  you."  "Speak for yourself!" exclaimed Dick.  "Mother and I will be one in this.  We've only each othor left in the world  now."  Winifred slept not at all that night.  She told herself that never .before had  she known what real ��������� unhappiness was.  She could have borne to give up her lov-  _er, but to know him unworthy���������to know  him, to whom she had surrendered her  whole confidence, her whole heart, in the  Slot,against her, perhaps from the very  rst-���������seemed more than she could bear  'and live.  Early in the morning sho heard Dick  .stirring in his room, which was'next to  hers. At' first she hoped that he had  risen betimes to como and tell her that  he was sorry for last night, that he had  made up his mind, if only for her sake,  not to go to Lionel Macaire. But she  soon: found out her mistake. Dick was  packing. He did not even come to hei'  door before he went, though he passed it,  dragging the box, which he would leave  in thc hall outside for thc janitor of the  flats te carry down.  "If only lie tells Lienol Vncairc why I  have refused to see htm���������my own brother���������while he lives under his roof!" slut  thought. At least she would like to feel  that. Macaire had little upon which to  congratulate himself.  -But Dick had no intention of tolling  his new employer anything of tlie kind.  If, as he argued, he "went blabbing" to  Macaire all Winnie's silly fancies, probably he should soon find himself out in  the cold. Natuially, Macaire would nol  wish to'keep for liis secretary a young  man whose sister imagined that he entertained a wild passion for her and  plotted for her undoing. Ho had decided  not to say anything to young Baron von  Zellheim either, for what von Zellheim  heard Macaire would hear also, as they  appeared to be such intimate friend^.  Winnie had said that she would not explain* von Zclllieim "would understand'  why he was forbidden to gee her, with  out that; and whether he did understand or. ho was hot; Dick's. business.  Winnie and von Zellheim could figlil  thcir;quarrel-out-between-thom.  T  coin Died.   HE following very remarkable  story is told In "James Russell Lowell and His Friends,"  by Edward Everett Hale.  He is writing of Sidney H.  Gay, then managing editor  of the New York "Tribune;"  "I have never seen In print Gay's  story of that tearful night when Lincoln was. killed, But one 'hears it freely repeated in conversation, and I see  no reason why it should not be printed  now.  "With the news of the murder of  Lincoln, there came to New York every  other terrible message. The office ot  the 'Tribune,' of course, received echoes  of all the despatches which showed the  alarm at Washington. There were orders for the arrest of this man, there  were suspicions of the loyalty of that  man. No one knew what the morrow  might bring.  "In the midst of the anxiety of such  hours, to Mr. Gay, thc acting editor ot  that paper, there entered the foreman  of the typesetting-room. He brought  with him the proof ot Mr, Greeley's  leading article, as he had left it* before  leaving the city for the day. It was a  brutal, bitter, sarcastic, personal attack on President Lincoln���������the man  who, when Gay read the article, was  dying In Washington,      '  "Gay read the article,, and asked the  foreman If he had any private place  where he could lock up the type,' to  which no one but himself had .access.  The foreman said he had. Gay bade  him tie up the type, lock the- 'galley  with this article ln.Xbls cupboard, and  tell no one what he had told him. Of.  course no such article appeared In the  'Tribune' the.next morning. ���������  "But when Gay arrived the next day,  at the office, he was met with the news  that 'the old man' wanted him, and the  Intimation that 'the old man' was very  angry.   Gay waited upon Greeley. \  ,"'Are you there, Mr. Gay? I have;  been looking for you. They tell me you'  ordered my leader out of- this morning's  paper. Is it your paper or mine? I  Bhould like to know if. I cannot print  what I choose In my own newspaper!',  This iff a great rage.  " 'The paper Is yours, Mr. Greeley.  The article Is in type upstairs, and you  can use It when you choose, pnly.thla,"  Mr. Greeley: I know New York, and I  hope and believe, before God, that'  there Is so much virtue In New York  that, If I had let the article go into this  morning's paper, there would not.be  one brick upon another In the "Tribune" office now. Certainly, I should  be sorry If there were.'  "Mr. Greeley was: cowed. He said  not a word, nor. ever alluded to the  subject again. I suppose the type is  looked up In the cupboard of the 'Tribune* office at this hour.  ; "It was by this sort of service that  Mr. Gay earned Mr. Wilson's praise  that 'he kept Mr. Greeley up to the,  war.'"  j Interoalional        ;  i     S.

T������  ,^__ ''���������","1���������  Brtdgewater,  Ontario,  once a boom  town of note, was'���������; brought into exist- ���������"  ence Toy one of the strangest gold finds'  and crazes, In the history, of this con-.  tlnent.   Nearly thirty years ago a far-.-  mer's  wife  was  searching  the  woods  near their  farm  for  a sow that  had-;  strayed, and, becoming thirsty, stopped,  to get a drink fronv a spring.   Slipping,  she fell upon a small, loose rock, which  rolled to her feat, and which proved to1  be, a- twenty-pound nugget of��������� almost ���������  pure gold.    Bridogwator at that time'  was .nearly- forty miles from the near-'  est rallroad.'ahd the present: site.of the'  town  was  nothing - but  a  wilderness,,  but  inside: of  six   months  'what  had  been, a burned-over, barren wilderness '  was converted into a substantial city  of nearly five thousand people.  In digging a shaft about a mile south  of the.,town site, an Immense quarry  of the purest white marble was.found,  and the town was practically.built of  marble, for It has to-day the only hotel,  church school, court house, and private  'dwellings constructed entirely ofwhlto  marble In the world,' and!.a mile north  of the town are an abandoned:axe factory arid grist mill, whose, foundations  are built of. the : same beautiful: material. And now comes the strangest  part of the story.. During, the building  of the town thousands: of men prospected the entire country/and shafts  and tunnels were driven���������some of them  nearly one hundred foot deep���������but',  strange as: It may seem, there : was  never enough gold found to pay the  cost of a single shaft or tunnel sunk or  run in the entire district.  A Sensible Bishop.  Dick" was-rather unhappy, for a. few  hours, for-he was'fond of Winifred in  his; way, and was : sorry to ��������� have gon-  against her, though he did not for a moment really regret what he had donc>  But, established in his new quarters at  Macaire's beautiful house, far'more mng  nificent than anything lie had eve:  seen, his spirits bounded up again. M:v  caire treated him right royally, nnd  Dick was more iudignnnt than ever that  Winnie should cherish.such imjust bus  picions of so good a fellow. .��������� ..'...;  lie found tuat ho was not Macaire'-  only secretary. There waB another, in  elderly man of a retiring disposition.  \vho apparently loved "work for its owi  sake; liut: he was oh a very different  footing in tho big household from thai  on which Dick was at once placed. Eith  er from his own choice or hecauso Macaire 'preferred: it,; this person!had his  meals served in the room where ho attended to his' correspondence, and was-  seldom seen oatside it, except wlien taking instructions, from the millionaire;  while, on the contrary, Dick was constantly, in request. His daily task, apparently, -was to do nothing more arduous than sending out or answering note;  of invitation to entertainments, though  cVcn that bade fair to'occupy him for a  couple of hours eaoh- morning.  The first day in his new berth lie  lunched with Macaire and half a dozer-  rich city men, who had been asked to  tho house. He drank, a great deal of  champagne, smoked sovoral cigars, which  he thought fit for Olympus, and was excited and happy, contrasting the present  -with the past in scorn of the latter, Tho  man who sat next him at tho table took  him quite seriously, despite his youth,  'and  talked  so  ������*Uuringly  of  the  stock  market, that Dick Tesolved as soon as he  could scrape enough sovereigns together  to iro in for a little plunge of lifts own.  (To be Contiaiwd.)  Tho Italian Bishop of Pano, reports  "La Science pour Tous," has sent out  -to-the--prlests-of-hls-dloccse-the-foI-  lowlng circular:  "1. In all churches/Immediately after  feast days on which there have been  very large congregations, the floors  must be disinfected by moans of wood  sawdust soaked: In oner tenth; per cent,  solution of corrosive sublimate;' On  ordinary days they must be frequently  swept, after sprinkling thorn with water so as to raise no dust.  "2. Every week, and even oftenar,  the pews' arid confessionals must be  cleaned with sponges and cloths moistened with pure water. '������������������';  "3. Every week, and oftencr If necessary, the grills of the confessionals  are to be washed and polished. "  "4. The holy water receptacles must  .bo emptied every week, or oftener if  necessary, and* washed with hot'water  or a solution of corrosive sublimate."  The same Journal comments as follows:  "That the provisions of the circular  may he carried out, the bishop has' Instituted; a; serviceVof Inspection,'.and  requires the payment of fines Into the  diocesan treasury for transgression "of  any of these hygienic rules. It is to be  desired that the Bishop of Fano's example' should be imitated by church  authorities'In other countries."  Great Things Probable. ���������     -  A Chicago professor is lecturing on  "How to Lie When Sleeping." The  politicians are much interested.

LESSON EXPOSITION.  L The Glorious Message.���������Shepherds  .... keeping watch by night, v. 8.  Judea is a ehecp-ralsing country  Shepherds are many, ot necessity, for  the people of Syria could not have fenced farms or pastures, as with us. Hence  some onA must be with the flocks of sheep  constantly, lest they wander so far aw ty  that they would be lost.* Shepherds  ���������till live out on pastures er in booths  all winter in Palestine. This fact has  been observed by Syrian missionaries  and travellers, as well-as by explorers  occasionally visiting the land. Whether  the birth of Jesus was in December, or  in March, or in some other month! of  the year, is not surely known. The  ���������trongest.tradition puts it in December,  and it has been celebrated by a,large  part of the Christian world on December  26 for several centuries.  Fear not . ... . 1 bring vou good  tidings, v. 10. The sudden flashing forth  of the angel beside the shepherds needed some assuring words to remove the  fear. The first thought to an Oriental,  perhaps to any mind, on the appearance  of a celestial messenger is that of a  wrathful message, a message of  coming judgment. But here was a  message of good, one of joy'beyond measure.  Unto you is born .'���������' . . . a Saviour,  v.-ll.-. The world needed a Saviour���������wa3  looking,for one about this time. Thc  Jews were longing for tbe Messiah. The  shepherds would ; understand that this  Saviour would be .the Meeaiab, for the  angel calls bim "Christ"���������that is, anointed, or Messiah the Lord.  You shall,find the babe.wrapped in  swaddling clothes, v. 12. But all little  babeB in the East were wrapped in  swathing cloths. So the messenger added, "and lying in a. manger." This was  a Very unusual place to put a babe.  There could hardly be a mistake in this  sign. There would not be two babes in  that city in mangers, though there might  be several wrapped in swathing bands.  Glory to God, on earth peace, v. 14.  Thc angelic choir must have sung that  song in language intelligible to simpto  shepherds. The song would exalt the  importance of the cent and make the  shepherds eager to see the child. The  two renderings of this song arise chiefly  from a variation in the Greek ,tc-xt.  The Authorized Version reads, tllory  to God in thc highest, and on earth  peace, good will toward men. Thc Kc-  viscd Versions read:  Glory to God in the highest,  And on earth peace among men, in  whom he is well pleuscd.  Tlie Syriac,    in   "the    oldest   version  known, supports the sense of the A. V.,  that the birth of Christ was God's fcx-  prcssioniof his good will toward men.  II. Tho Shepherds and Jesus.���������Let us  now go . . ..,��������� . and see, v. 15. Tho  shepherds were practical men. They did  not stop to speculate about the' probability or, improbability of the news, or  upon, whether they-.had actually seen  and heard angels, or simply been deceived' or dreaming. They went at once to  "see this saying that is come to pass."  They had: no doubt about the reality of  the messenger and the message. They  wanted to see, and were sure they would  see the. thing by going into Bethlehem.  The town was in sight by.night, or very  near���������on ,the opposite hill perhaps. And  away they went on the glad errand in  great haste.  When they had seen . . they made  known, v. 17. They had seen not "it,"  but the child, or strictly thc fullillmcnt  of the angel's "word." "They could not  keep the good-cews.-^Tbe-wonderful-visit  of the angel, the song of the heavenly host, the view of the babe, and of  Joseph . and Alary, made a story fitted  to interest Oriental hearts and cars.  AH they {hat heard it wondered, v.  18. The facts seemed to be slated by  too many, witnesses to be questioned.  The people could not explain the facts,  nor did the flipplicrds' oiler to do so.  Thus the multitude wondered; what  could all  this menu?  Mary kept all these things, v. 19.  Mary "put "all these tilings"���������tint is,  thc "angelic announcement of the birth  of'thc child, her visit to Elizabeth, this  fresh angelic message unci song reported bv the shepherds���������in her mind, and  fried' to consider how nil tho promises  were to be fulfilled in the child's life.

It is suggestive, that not to the  high priests, to the ruler?, the scribc3,  the Pharisees or the leaders in Jewish  theology, was this good news told, but  to humble shepherds, and tficy at once  believed.

Most people. If they were asked to  state the color of the sun, would say  that It was orange, and they would as  confidently assert that the color of the  j atmosphere was blue. Recent researches and Investigations, however,  I says "Knowledge," point to the conclu-  jslon that thc real color of the ������un li  ,ulue. while that of lhe atmosphere  jam-rounding the earth Is orange.  i A good many formalities are neces-  isary for the women of Sumatra berorr  j they can lay aside their widow's weeds,  ,aays "Womanhood." Immediately after the husband's death the disconsolate widow places a flagstaff In front  er her door, and on this a flag Is ralaid.

A little machine which threads one  thousand needles a minute is at work  In St. Gall, Switzerland.

It takes the needle  from a hopper, carries It along an.!  ���������threads it. ties the knot, cuts the  |thread oft a uniform length, then car-  lies the needle across ah open space  ,������nd sticks it In a rack, f The work of  threading these needles was formerly  done by hand.

But  higher yet Is the fall in the San Cav������-  Un canyon, in the State of Durango,  Mexico. It was discovered by some  prospectors ten years ago in the great  Barranca district, which is called the  Tlerras Desconocidas. While searching for the fatuous lost mine; Naranjal  a great roar of water was heard. With  "treat difficulty the party pushed on  and up and down, the mighty chasms,  antll they beheld the superb fall that  ������ at least 3,000 feet high.  ; The date-palni' may solve  the prob-  em of what to do with  the arid and  llkau lands of Arizona and other West-  irn   States.

The citizen of Vienna who doeii  not wish to oe out 'of pocket must  koep early hours, for after ten  o'clor-lt he is taxed on entering his  own house, or, for the matter of that,  any house. The "sperrgeld," or door-  opening tax. is peculiar to Vienna,'as  the London "Express** explains. The  entire population of that city, numbering- nearly two millions, are practically imprisoned in their houses from  ten o'clock in the evening until six  the next moriilii*;. They can go In or  out only by paying at least flour cents  to the Janitor or "house-master," as  he is culled.  Vienna la built on the "Hal" or apartment-house plan. .Millloiiiulies and  working people alike live In Jiouses of  this description. The houses tare large,  having five or six floors, with four flats  on a iloor, so Hint It is not unusual to  find a hundred pui-sous living under  one roof. There Is one common entrance from the street, nnd after ten  o'clock nt night this door Is bolted and  Inured. From tan until twelve all wifo  go in or out must pay four cents. After twelve the clitu-go Is doubled.  The tax must -be paid every time one  passes through the doorway, without  exception. If a man has occasion to  go lu and out half a dozen times, he  must pay every time. One who has  dined with a friend must, If he stay  late, pay four cents to get out of his  friend's house, and four mo-re to gat  Into his own. A telegram in'the night  necessitates the payment of the tax  before the boy can enter.  Tho .house-master also collects and  keeps duplicate copies of the forms on  which every Individual In tho house  must report to tlie police his age,  birthplace and religion, his exact occupation, and oilier personal details  which the Austrian authorities Insist  upon knowing. Nor does the power of  this important personage end even  here. From the little guard-room  which he occupies at the foot of the  stairs he sees every one who goes In  or out. Ho ascertains with amazing  accuracy the amount of each tenant's  Income, the events of his family life,  and the character of his visitors. Ills  far-reaching power enables him to terrorize every servant In the house Into  entering his intelligence department,  and thus he spies 'on the Innermost  life of the subjects In his five-storey  kingdom.  In some cases the house-master is  more powerful than in others. An  English resident was obliged to move  from an apartment that he particularly liked because he could not venture to speuk with any degree of  sharpness to the man at the door, even  when the man was remiss in his duties. The flat was owned by a. railway belonging to the State. This madi>  the house-master a State official, an  insult to whom Is a very serious offence In Vienna. A reprimand for delaying letters would be construed Into  nn insult, and the Englishman deemed  it wise to move to other quarters.  Thousands of people In Vienna live  In such terror of the house-master  that. It Is said, they never make an  apple-tart without giving him half.

A hunter .who was trailing after  -bear.-mcat In British Columbia reports to t'he "Western Sportsman"  an experience' which ' he calls a  "narrow graze." If the incident happened as the .hunter tells it, it was Indeed a narrow, graze; but one cannot  help suspectlng'.that some of the-invigorating ozone of the North-West hai  got into the story. Nevertheless, It is  worth hearing.'  "It was warm and dry, and along  In the middle of the afternoon I began to pine for rest and a plpa. It  was all quiet and no traces of game,  aud so when I'd had a comfortable  smoke I stretched out for a nap.  "It  must  have  been  an  hour  later  that I woke up and found myself covered with two feet of leaves anug as  the  babes   In   the   wood.'   I   was   all  tucked In  that cosy that nobody  else  could have done It but a cougar, and  most likely a  female cougar at that.  It occurred to me with some force' that  I'd  been  filed away  for future  reference,  and   that   I    hadn't   waked   up  any too soon.    It didn't soothe me to  figure on that cougar stowing me away  as a. dog hides a bone.  ' "It seemed  that the best thing for  me to do was to countermine that cou-'  gar's mine,  as  it  were.    So I hunted  up  a.  log  about   my    alze    and    covered   It   with   the   leaves���������a   nice   fat  hump on the ground.   Then I shinned  a tree  close by,  assuring myself  be-'  yond.any doubts or peradventures that  nobody had meddled with the working  of my repeater.  "The cougar came In such a short  time as to show, how fortunate it was  that-I- had-waked-up-when-I-did, and-  with her, as I had calculated, were a  ohoice lot of young ones. She had left  a dinner located and had been off to  get her family.  '.'Well, that cougar circled around the  pile of leaves for a matter of minutes,  crouching and picking a nice select  place to spring from. When she got  satisfied and made the leap she went  through the air tremendous, throwing  the leaves in a whirlwind and scratching and snarling. It was some of a  shock when she found the log, but she  didn't display any disappointment. She  just took the scent and came to the  foot of my tree and looked up, real  venomous.  "It seemed to her an o.wkward Job  to handle, I having my gun ready so,  and the cougar had an inspiration.  She went to a tree about ten feet away  and started to go up. She was after  that meal and not to be discouraged  by any trifles. It was .her idea to  plimb up above me on the other tree  and then bring me down with a flying  leap.  "I didn't lose any more time with experiments or speculations, but let her  have it the first time she came round  the tree. The ball, went through her  Jaw and breast, and the varmint'went  to the ground. The young ones wers  running around, and I knocked them  over, too, with tbe gun.

They mean tliat "the fear of the  Lord ia the beginning of wisdom."   Fear,  -as we commonly take it, is considered a disgrace by manly minds, and right  ���������i- fcere is the truth that upright, courageous men will never do that for which  ��������� they need have fear. The fear of Cod  is based on tlie soul's duty and responsibility to its Crcal or. If the last spark  -af dignity and pride is not put out, the  - -uinner will be luhaiued to meet liis fellows, because he is conscious of bis disloyalty to the general law of good doing.

One of the most distinguished of  Washington clergymen, says The Star  of that city, was seen the other day  walking uncertainly along First street  northwest, just south of the entrance  to the Soldiers' Home. He held a slip  of paper in jus hand, looked at it every  little while with a puzzled expression on  his face, and then turned to stare absently at the open fields all about him.  A mounted policeman rode up to him  ���������iter a little, And asked: "Can I help  you, sirt"  "Maybe,*' answered the venerable doctor. "I'm looking for a house up in this  neighborhood somewhe.'e," and with that  he handed his slip of paper to the officer. "It is No. 2,816 First street. To  guide me I've written after the number  that the house is on First street, near  the corner of Ninth. But I don't see  how there can be any corner of First  and Ninth streets."  The policeman was as much puulcd  as the clergyman. A letter carrier who  passed just at that time was accordingly  called into consultation. The three  were studying over the address, when  the minister folded the paper with a  strange, faint smile, and began to walk  back toward the city.  "Have you found the house**" asked  the letter carrier, catching step with  the clergyman,  "No, I haven't found the house," was  the answer. "I find that the address I  had written down is the twenty-eighth  verie of the sixteenth chapter of the  First Epistle to the Corinthians."  Barbara Frietchie.  Let no one again doubt that Barbara  Frictchie lived and waved the flag she  loved.    A contributor to The Atlantic  saw the Sag, and records the testimony  of the old lady's grand-niece.   At 90 tlie  poet's heroine was still intensely loyal:  "Her unpretentious flag was usually flying from its mast at the window of her  humble home ia West Patrick street.   It  was   removed   when   the   Confederate  troeps entered the city, Sept. 10, 1862,  and carefully folded away ia her Bible,  but  it  was . again   displayed  by Dams  Barbara  as  she  stood   by   the  window  watching the passage of Burn side's troop i  on  the  morning  of  the   12th.    This   it  the occasion usually referred to as her  historic waving  of   the' flag,  though   it  was not in the face of the enemy, nnd  called  forth  not  shots,  but  shouts,   as  the  passing  troeps  noted   her   extrema  age and this expressive token of her loyalty.    Major General Reno him-:elf w.'.s  attracted by the scene,  and stopped  to  apeak a  word  to the old lady,  imjuire  her age and  beg thc flag of her.    She,  however, resolutely refused to part with  this one,  but finally consented  to give  the gallast General"  another  owned  by  her!   And this Hag, thus presented, wa������  a few days later laid on the bier of the  brave Keno, who fell the day after at  South Mountain."  How to_Tell Cut GIass.  Concluding an interesting article, dealing with the cut glass factories at Corning, N.Y., a writer in The New  York  Tribune.Bays: "Many persona are puz/.lod  to distinguish good eut glass from ths  inferior..'article.    One good rule is that  if it is cheap it must be inferior, for it  costs to make good cut glass.   Here are  some directions which Corning manufacturers give by which one can toll tlie real  article:   "A  piece of line cut glass transmits light colorless as a crystal.    Inferior glass usually shows a tint, yellowish or greenish, and its surfaces are apt  to  look  smoky  as  you  hold  the  piece  between your eye and thc light.    Then  you  will  notice  that in  fine glass  the  pattern is not only better designed, but  truer in execution, that the cuttings aro  sharp  and   polished  with   perfect  evenness.-.In the inferior glass you.will ti:*.d j  by comparison all sorts of irregularities, j  Until  you  have  mastered   these  di!T{T-;  enccs you  will not be a connoisseur of j  fine cut glass, and will not understand j  why the collector is willing to. pay the;  necessary  difference   in   price    between |  good   glass,   artistically     designed   and j  Tbe Kaiser's Divine Right.  Though the German Emperor claims  to  rule  by  divine  right,  in strict  history the power of the Hohenzollerns originated in the right of a pawnbroker  over an unredeemed pledge, says    The  London Chronicle.      Until the fifteenth  century  the  Kaiser's    ancestors    were  merely Burggraves of Nuremburg. Then  -Frederick VI. of Hohenzollera accommodated  the  Emperor  Sigismund with  a>  loan of 100,000 gulden on the securitx  of Brandenburg.     In 1417 the Hohenzollera money-leader foreclosed on the  mortgage, and became in default of the  repayment ot the 100,000 gulden Elector  of the Empire and Frederick I. ef Brandenburg.    Not until 1701 did the Hohen-  ���������ollcrns become a royal houBe and the  crowned Kings of Prussia, while their  Imperial rank dates,    of course, from  1871 only.     Of this lean incident in the  history of the Hohenzollerns, York has  a souvenir which might almost tempt  thc German Emperor to visit the northern capital.     It is the city's great two-  banded sword of State, which will figure  in the inauguration  of the new Lord  Mayor of  York  for  the  ensuing civic  year.      This aword formerly  belonged  to that Emperor Sigismund, from whom  Frederick  Hoheniollern     exacted    the  Mark of Brandenburg in exchange for  a timely loan.     Sigismund was made a  Knight of the Garter by Henry V., and  as custom demands, sent a sword to be  hung with his banner over his stall in  St.  George's r Chapel,     Windsor.      Ths  Emperor died in 1437 ; his sword was'  taken down asd offered at tha altar' in  payment fer masses for the repose of  his. muL     One ef the canons of Windsor, named Henslap,  thus became possessed of the Imperial weapon.     Being  a man ef peace and also a native of  York, he presented the sword to that  eity, where it was and still is borne before the lord Mayor oh State occasions.  Lord Kayos and Jews.  Sir Marcus Samuel was not the first  Lerd Mayor ef London to pass through  the Jewish district of that city on Lord  Mayor's day. The Jewish World in commenting on tha event says:���������Sir Mar-  ews, who as a communal worker is certainly popular with the Jewish people,  did net confer any favor on ths Jews by  riding in his State coaeh, led by his  multi-garbed precession, - east of Guildhall, before going west to the Law  Courts te be received by his Majesty's  Judges. The rule is that the Lord  Mayor's procession shall traverse the  principal streets of the ward he represents ia the City Council. Aocordinj  with this precedent Sir Henry Aaroa  Isaacs passed through Portsoken, ths  principal street of which is lloundsditch,  when lie assumed the duties of fLord  Mayor. Nov. 9 then fell on the Sab-  batk. The Jews protested vigorously  against his desecrating the Sabbath by  riding. As a concession, it was proposed  that the procession should pass through  the street while his then Lordship should  walk the length of ths street. Ths precedents of Mayoral pageantry interfered'  with this scheme. This year the Jewish  market street eo.me into the reute because it has been rebuilt and is now a  wide thoroughfare. Formerly Petticoat  lane was so narrow that two pushcarts  could not pass each other witseut' eo-  eroachisg on the sidewalk.  Ths Horse in Heat and Dust.  When at work in thc field on a hot  dny, and especially in dusty work, si  harrowing, cultivating and running ths  horse rake or tedder, which usually stir  up a dust, there are few men who do not  think it seceesary to stop occasionally  io wash, the dust out of the mouth and  throat with water, if they have not anything worse. Yet how many think that  the team also may be suffering from  thirst or from a mouth filled with dry  dust T W> fear not many do so. if  near the well or spring thsy go for their  own drink, and. if far away they are  usually thoughtful enough to take  One of Napoleon's Boasts.  WE who know the last as well as  the flrBt of Napoleon, who have  read about Moscow, Leipnltz,  Elba, Waterloo and St. Helena as studiously sb about the campaigns in  Italy, and Marengo, Jena and Auster-  lltz, cannot fully comprehend with  what reverence some of his apophthegms were received by the French  when he was still unbeaten and apparently unbeatable. One of his boasts  waa that he was not governed by circumstances; that he made circumstances and was superior to them.  When someone hinted that destiny  might compass his defeat he replied  that destiny would not dare. Even Victor Hugo, half a century after Waterloo, was blinded by the light of Napoleon's genius, and treated him as a Titan, fit to contend, though vainly, with  high heaven. It was not Wellington, not  Blucher who defeated - Napoleon, says  Hugo in his beautiful rhapsody on Waterloo; it was God. Napoleon, he declares, with blasphemous brilliancy,  embarrassed God. "Waterloo waa a  change of front on the part of the universe"���������the quotation is from memory  ���������"in the new series of facts there was  no room for Napoleon. Therefore a  second-class commander won a first-  class battle."  A good many believe with Napoleon  that genius rises above circumstances.  Napoleon's boastful epigram has been  declared a rule of faith by successful  men, who scout the idea of village  Hampdens and mute, inglorious Mil-  tons. But the epigram Is nothing but  a boast. It is not true. We are held  fast in the vise of circumstances and  are not completely masters of our fate.  Luck enters into every game, even the  game of life. No man can arrange the  cards In the game with destiny, for  destiny always deals. It may rain  some day when the best laid plans call  for sunshine, and the plans may be  pulverized. At Austerlltz, which was  fought at dawn, Napoleon said: "We  have a rendezvous with the sun and  both parties are on time." The Sun of  Austerlltz became a* superstition In the  Grand Army.  But at Waterloo there was another  rendezvous with the sun and the sun  was tardy. Waterloo is the convincing  answer to Napoleon's boast and to the  precept that great men are superior to  circumstances. Hugo points out that  accidents defeated Napoleon. His plan,  as experts admit, was a masterpiece.  But he reckoned without luck. The  battle was to have commenced at  dawn, but rain fell the previous night,  and the ground became too muddy for  the manoeuvres of artillery. Napoleon  therefore delayed the assault nearly six  hours, until the ground became firmer.  That delay gave Blucher time to come  up when lie was needed and to turn the  tide of the fray. The rainfall defeated  Napoleon and drove him to St. Helena.  A peasant guide led Blucher aright,  and he chanced to debouch on the field  from the point and at the moment  where and when he was supremely effective. Another peasant guide led  Grouchy astray and he did not arrive.  Had it not rained before the battle,  had Blucher had a bad guide and  Grouchy a good one, history might  have been different. Napoleon was  conquered by circumstances. ��������� San  Francisco "Bulletin."    .   .  Fop Farmers.

Hugo Reed, one  of the expert judges employed by the  Government Department at the recent  Charlottetown Fair:���������  If a man is breeding for the market  he should find out what the market demands and then make up his mind as to  what style of the horses in demand he  can produce at most profit to himself.  The best selling horBes to-day are heavy  draughts, carriage horses and saddle  horses.  Heavy draughts.���������Frinco Edward Island is certainly in a position to produce  good heavy horses. The Clydcs are a  good breed and seem to be in most demand. The stallions at present owned  on the island when mated to good marcs  will certainly produce colts that will  sell well. A reasonably heavy mare of  good conformation is required. There  were' instances on thc grounds where  Clyde stallions had been bred to light  mares of standard bred blood. The  progeny were nondescripts of no particular use, and this iB the general result of such violent crossing.  Carriage horses.���������The distinction between carriage horses and roadsters is  evidently not well understood by exhibition managements or people in the  Maritime Provinces. These aro two distinct types of horses, and should-not ba  judged m the same class. There should  bo provision at least for a single roadster in harness and a matched pair.  The distinction between roadsters and  carriage horses is not a matter of size,  or of breeding. The road horse is valuable for hia performance in getting over  the road; the carriage horse for his attractiveness, his style and action, in addition to his road qualities. The carriage horse in demand to-day must havo  action, high action, folding his knees  and hocks well, and he must do this no  matter whether going five miles an hour  or fifteen. He must hold up his head  without the aid of a check and always  look proud. In size he may vary 15-2  to 16 hands or even slightly over. As  a general rule the carriage horse should  have more Substance than the roadster,  be more horizontal in the croup, aud  above all must have a high proud head.  Tho road horse with low action and perhaps low head may go faster and farther and last longer than the carriage  horse, but he is not so much iu demand.  In the large markets, Chicago, New  York, Detroit and even Toronto the carriage horse may sell for from $009 up,  while the road horse will bring from  9150 up.  Breeding carriage horses.���������Standard  bred owners claim that their stallions  will get good carriage horses. This is  true to some extent, but the percentage  is very small. The-surest way to get  carriage horses is to use a' stallion with  the desired action. He is best got in  the Hackney or one of the coaching  breeds. Personally I prefer the English  Hackney. The dam must of course be  carefully selected. To mate well with  tho stallions above mentioned she must  have more or less worm blood. She  should have been sired by a standard-  .bred or a thoroughbred stallion.* This  is necessary because the Hackney and  coaching breeds have not a long-continued purity of breeding nnd so have  not that prepotency which the thoroughbred stallion, for instance has. Tliey  Cannot therefore like thc thoroughbred  impress their individuality upon colts  from marcs of course typo and cold  blood. Kilnwick Firfaway, the Hackney  you have here should be able, if intelligently mated, to produce a good typo  of carriage horses. To get carriage  horse by the use of a . thoroughbred  sire, you must have marcs of high action, for the thoroughbred's natural  gait is a gallop or run; lie has long  low action. He is, however, tho purest  blooded animal in the world.  Referring to the term "thoroughbred"  the word is much abused. It can only  be correctly applied to the English thoroughbred racinjr horse or his pure bred  descendant. The word cannot be applied  to a Clyde or a Hackney, nor a bull, a  ram or a boar. Such aniinnls may be  brod, but never thoroughbred. The  thoroughbred stallion from Mb.purity, of  breeding can give better results than  blooded mares, and will often get good  saddle horses that way. It is tlie influence of thoroughbred blood that has  produced the standard bred trotter of  to-day. It is his thoroughbred ancestry which gives him his courage and endurance.  =SaddIa^horaes.~-As^above=.indieatod  Pudding: Day In London.  Tlie London Daily Mail, in an article  dealing  with   the  passing  of  old  London, says that the spirit of change, so  marked in recent years, has left "untam-  pered a few ancient customs.    One of  these is "Pudding Day" at several of the  inns in the neighborhood of fleet street  and the Strand.   No amount of money,  it is said, could purchase the recipe of  the pudding,   Mr. CharleB Moore,    the  present holder  of  the  secret  and the  proprietor  of a well-known    hostelry,  having often been tempted in vain.   The  hand  of the proprietor  himself    compounds the ingredients���������beefsteaks, kidneys, oysters,   larks and    mushrooms.  Then there are various Bpices and gravies known only to himself.   The boiling  process takes about sixteen to twenty  hours.   But it ib not in the making or  eating of ths pudding that any old practice survives���������though it might be argued  thnt one of these operations antedates  the first pudding that ever was���������but in  the manner of the serving.   Fitting ceremonial attends the appearance of    tho  pudding in the dining-room.    The head  waiter, with Btately step, bears in the  steaming delicacy, followed  by all the  other waiters in single tile, the proprietor himself bringing up tlio rear.   Only  a man of exceptional    trustworthiness  and proved fidelity is allowed to carry  in the pudding.   It is wisely regarded  as a position in which temptation is ever  before the man who occupies it.    The  pudding���������which weighs    about    eighty  pounds���������is directly under hia nose, and  the delicious steam is wafted into his  face as  he marches  along.      What if  some  day  he  should   bo  very   hungry,  and succumb to the temptation!   If the  head waiter at the "cheese"'  were not,  there survive quaint old customs which  were observed in the same place a hundred or more years ago.    To assist at  one of these functions is inevitably to  court imagination's  play.    One peoples  the surroundings with the greater men  who  ligurcd  there?   Only one accident  has befallen-the pudding in the whole  of  its  long  nnd  distinguished  premiership over all other puddings.   Tom, the  head waiter of former days, tripped   on  the stairs and rolled to the bottom, man  and pudding and sawdust -commingling  at the foot!    Mr. B. A. Moore, the father of the present proprietor, went to  the wine office and said to his son, the  tenrs tho while gathering in his eyes:  "Charles, the pudding is down."  "Well,"  replied  Charles, "why  aren't  you carving itl"  "Yes, but it is down on tho iloor.  Tom has dropped it down stairs."  Then the overcome proprietor sank  into a ehair, while a crowd of disappointed guests trooped dejectedly away.  "Old William," for many years the  head waiter, was never so impressive  as on pudding days. He would walk  round the tables urging the diners to  have a second or a third helping.  "Any gentleman says pudden!" was  his repeated inquiry.  . "No gentleman says 'pudden,'" was  the unkind retort of'many customers: .  But William died in happy oblivion  of the point of that joke.  From the earliest days the proprietor  himself has always carved the pudding.  Thc late Mr. B. A. Moore was restrained  with difficulty from rising from his bed  when stricken down with illness and  driving to "cheese" to serve out the pudding.'       .  Robins fn Captivity.

CHRISTMAS WAS FORBIDDEN  Co lie Obsei-Vfiil by th������ Puritans Who Denounced It as a Heathen Foast.   ,-' * ~~  As everybody knows, Christ was  not born on December 26, and Christmas, though celebrating His birth, is  really a survival o������ the heathen festival���������among the Celts called Yuio  and by the Romans Saturnalia���������celebrating tho turning point of the year  and tho henceforth increasing power  of the sun.  On this account the Puritans denounced Christmas as a heathen and  Popish feast and did not observe IL  During the Commonwealth they carried their objections into force and  forbade tho celebration of Christmas. .  In 1644 Parliament ordered December  25 to be strictly kept as a solemn fast,  end that all people should pass tho  ���������day in, humbly bemoaning the great  national sin which they and their ancestors had hitherto committed on  that day by eating boar's head, drinking ale flavored with roasted apples,  devouring plum, pudding and' romping  under the mistletoe. For twelva  years this order remained in force.  Municipal authorities also sought to  reduce Christmas Day to the level of  other days. We are told that, "Upon  Wednesday, December. 22, 1647, tho  cryyer of Canterbury, by the appointment of Master Maior, openly proclaimed tbat Christmas Day and all  other superstitious-festivals should be  put down, and that a market should  be kept upon a Christmas Day."  For attending service in the Cathedral on that day many people were  mobbed. Tbe inhabitants divided)  themselves into two parties���������tho  Chrlstmasites, and the antl-Christ-  masites���������and came to blows. >  On December 24, 1C52, an Order in  Council was issued, proclaiming  "that no observation shall be had of  the five-and-twentieth day of December, commonly called Christmas Day,  nor any solemnity used or exercised  in churches upon that day in respect  thereof." ' (  . This was simply a roproclaniatlon  ot an edict of 1647. abolishing Christmas, Easter, Whitsuntide and all other  holy days. Soldiers were sent to tilie  houses of all suspected., persons to  search the ovens and larders and carry away for their own consumption  all seasonable dainties found therein.  People who ate mince pies and decorated thoir houses with evergreens  were declared unworthy of sitting ia  Parliament.  But the restoration.of King Charles  was "also the restoration of King  Christmas, who has ever since reigned  undisturbed. But the Puritan's hatred  of Christmas lingered. long among  Noncomformists.  It has now disappeared, and services  aro held in all places ot worship on  Christmas Day, while the rest-is celebrated equally by all sects. '  Would Do In Either Case.'  Ganta Claus was in a quandry. Ho  thrust his hands into his pockets andi  gazed despairingly at the stocking suspended in limp supplication from tho  mantel-piece.

NICHOLAS DAY. >  t")m������thln>r    Ahont   fix   flood   Season    ot  "Slytlic In Sweet Confusion."  HRTSTMAS tide has already  long been ushered in, property  speaking, by St. Andrew's day  (November 1). the introductory  festival of Advent season.   But   all of them   except   Christmas  Bay itself have faded into comparative  insignificance, and gradually the St.  Nicholas, Kriss Kringle, and Santa  Claus myths, with, the story of the  Christ child, have gathered p- und  the 25th of December in such "swset  Confusion" that In it are concentrated  the essence and beauty of all, and the  former special gift-giving ot other  days of this season is mostly dona  away with, says the New York Evening Post.- Even St. Nicholas day, December 6, Is Uttlifeelebrated. It seems  n pity that the knowledge ot American children should be so limited  concerning their own patron saint, at  least so canonized by the Greek, and  Roman churches centuries ago. Ha  lived during the fourth century in Pa-  tara, a city of Lycin, in Asia Minor,  tut his history proves his cosmopolitan, "popular" qualities, for he became patron saint of Russia; in England there are 372 churches named for  bim, and his tomb at Bari, in Italy,  Is a shrine for thousands of pilgrims  every year. He became the protector  ot boys and girls, and even found ht3  ���������way to the hearts of sailors and robbers, and was adopted by them. ;  Gift glring on this day had its origin in tue story of a nobleman of  Patara who was too poor to dower  his. daughters, and they were thus  forced to remain unmarried. St.  Nicholas heard- of this state of affairs,,  nnd one night stole unobserved to tho  house of the nobleman, seeking a way  to give.,him of hie.own store of gold.  The moonlight revealed an open window, and through this the good man  flung a bag of money. This provided  a marriage portion for the eldest  daughter, "while a similarly mysterious present the second night dowered  the next daughter." The third night  Nicholas was discovered by the nobleman, but the saint begged that : his  gifts might remain unknown to. any  others. Since that time it has been  ���������generally understood that sweetmeats  end other trifles found in shoes or  stockings set outside the door on St,  Nicholas eve'have been placed thoro  by the jolly old gentleman himself.  In some parts of Germany Knecht  Jtuprecht, a modern'zed form of St  Nicholas, goes to houses on Christmas eve, taking gifts for good children and rods for the disobedient. lie  Is sometimes called "Pelsnichol," or  Nicholas with the fur. Some of tha  early Christians, who used the pretty  custom of filling shoes and stockings  with gifts, told their children that)  these love tokens were dropped  through the roof when the Christ ch'.ldi  passed over, the house: in the Bight,  At Christmas tide man's pride and Joy.

HAVE considerable respect for  the female spider, notwithstanding the fact that she does not  treat the male very considerately," says a correspondent. "I hnd  an .opportunity last .slimmer to watch  a. large ono that had a web in the top  of a decayiiifr peach tree' with so few  leaves that it was In plain view. I  causht sight of lier first when watch-  in**- some birds with my gluss. She  seemed to be climbing from the lop of  the tree on nothing; to a telephone wire  some fifteen feet away and somewhat  higher than her web. When sho  reached the wire she went around it  and then back. In studying tho situation, I found the web was so located  that it required a cable to hold it up,  ana the spider had in some way got  one over the wire so far away. This  cable was, of course, n slender silken  thread which cvinently she had thrown  out, and on account of its lightness It  had floated to the right place and become attached there by Its glutinous  properties. It seems remarkable that  it should have adhered to the wire  firmly enough to allow so large an Insect to climb over It, which she did  every day as long as I watched her,  evidently to mend or strengthen it. Tho  spider must have brains in which tho  ability' to construct its web and adapt  It to conditions is highly developed."  In an article In "Chambers' Journal"  the following account of how the spld- -'  er forms Its silken threads Is given:  "One of the most interest v features in the economy of spiders .: their  power of emitting slender threads of  a silk-like substance called gossamer,  with which most of them construct  mesh-like nets, and a few long, dangling cables, by which Ihey. are buoyed  through the air with: nearly as much  facility as though they had been furnished with wings. The apparatus  provided by nature for elaborating and  emitting this gossamer is a beautiful  piece of mechanism.- Within the animal there are several little. bags or  vesicles of a gummy matter; and these  vesicles are connected with a circular  orifice situated at the abdomen.- Within this orifice are five little teats or  spinnerets, through which the gossamer is drawn. It must not be concluded, however, that there is only one  film of gossamer produced by each  spinneret; the fact ia, these teats are  studded with thousands * of minute  tubes too small for the naked *?ye to  perceive, and each of these emits a  thread of inconceivable fineness. These  minute tubes are known.as spinnerules,  and the films which proceed from them  unite like so many strands of a rope to  form the thread of gossamer by which  a spider suspends Itself. - The finest  thread which .human mechanism can  produce Is like a ship's cable compared  with'the delicate films which flow, from  the spinnerules of the largest "spider.  The films are all distinctly, separate on  coming from the spinneret, but unite,  not by any twisting process, but merely by their own glutinous or gummy  nature. Thus the spinning apparatus  of the disdained spider, when viewed  by the eye of science, becomes one of  the most wonderful pieces of animated mechanism known to man. The  animal has great command over this  apparatus, and can apply It at will as  long as the receptacles within are replenished with the gummy fluid, .but  as soon as this gum is exhausted. all  its efforts to spin are fruitless, and it  must: wait till nature, -by her inscrutable chemistry, has secreted it from  the food which is devoured."���������"Waver-  ley Magazine."  Life is Too Short!'  An evening contemporary has been  Informing its readers 'thatthey can use  the same calendars every twenty years  ���������when the dates of tlie months fall on  the same days of the week���������^thereby  avoiding the expense of five almanacs  Cor the present century. But here is  something even better than that. Those  persons who have the double a.; vantage of ancient family and "careful  forefathers, by turning, up the calendars��������� unfortunately, they are: not  printed ones���������for the twelfth century,  by Solomon Jarchus, will'find the days  and dates coincident with the present  century. Such persons can save the  Expense of buying for one hundred  years. Again, those with a frugal  mind who have preserved the almanacs of the nineteenth century will avoid  an outlay for calendars of the century  commencing January 1, 2201, as the  dates for the hundred years following  will be coincident with those of the  last~ century. But life,, remarks the  London "Chronicle," Is scarcely long  enough for jsuch economies.  A  On the Right Way.  I/MOST every man who has been  successful has written an article  for some magazine on how ho  did it, or been Interviewed by  some newspaper, but all this information has been scattered carelessly  ibroad, so that just when we want  io know what to do, or the right  step to take, we cannot lay our hands  5n the particular species of advice  which we remember to have read. Tha  result Is that we stumble along as best  tve can, anil probably make the very  mistake of our lives, all for want of  mowing what Caleb Coupon did at this  point.  The writer hopes herewith to supply  this deficiency, as he has kept a record  3f the principal necessities laid down  trom time to time by great men  who have given the results of their experience, and lays them before tho  reader, to follow closely and not shirk.  To begin with, you should select for  a 'birthplace a dingy-looking little  farmhouse, on the outskirts of a clearing. Log cabins havo gone out of date.  At one time they were quite fashionable, but something a trifle better Is  now demanded. As time goes on, who  knows? Maybe some of our great men  will be born in the "Ladles' Homo  Journal" three-thou'sand-doHar country  houses. Tills, however, is a remote  contingency.  I3e good to your mother. While the  other .boys of the neighborhood are  playing hookey, marbles and baseball,  you will be doing chores around the  house. This, however, does not imply  a goodness in any other way. You  will, of course, avoid going to Sunday-  school, and when you are not sawing  wood and laying the foundation of the'  wonderful constitution which is afterwards to carry you through life, you  will bo reading a few well-chosen  books, such as the dictionary, the Bible, and one or two good comic papers.  You will find the jokes useful later  when you are called upon to make after-dinner speeches.  You can then take your choice of  "struggling" through college or leaving  the farm with a dollar in your pocket.  Better leave college alone; however, as  It teaches you a lot of superfluous things  you may regret. Many a man who  might have accumulated a large fortune has spoiled It all by going through  college and learning to love other  things more than money. The best  plan Is to come to New York with a  dollar in your pocket. Go at once to  the leading savings bank and deposit  seventy-five cents. Live on the balance .until you get work. As soon as  you get work, save at least seventy-  five per cent, of your wages, if you can;,  or, better: still, ninety per cent. You  will thus: acquire habits of frugality,  which will be a source:of happiness to  you throughout your whole life. .  Atthe end of: a few years you will  have, saved up a' few thousands, and  your success Is now assured. Do not  gamble. Itobbing Is not only safer and  surer, but it is legal. Protected by the'  laws of your country, you can feel entirely safe. Reorganize a railroad,  start a small trust,. or get acquainted  in Washington. - When you get������������������ to be  seventytyou.ought to be worth at least  a hundred millions. You can then make  a bluff at -giving it all away, ,and be  quoted as saying'that it Is wicked for  a rich man to' leave anything behind  him.���������Tom- Masson.

Mr. Balfour on Illustration,,  "There are books," said Mr, Arthur  Balfour, at the dinner given to Sir  John Tenniel In London the other.evenr  ing "In which the text is a mere otiose  and almost unnecessary appendage to  the illustrations; There are other books,  still larger in number, im.which the illustration Is an. impertinent: intrusion  upon' the attention of the- reader, distracting his mind ' from the literary  masterpiece with which he Is concerned, and 'Intruding alien and unsympathetic ideas to disturb the current of his thoughts. Those books are  numerous. But there is a third class  of book In which the illustration and  the text are so Intimately: connected,  in which the'marriage between the two  Is so happy and so complete,'that you  cannot conceive the text adequately  without the Illustrations any. more than  you.could conceive the Illustrations v.n-  elucidated by the text. Our guest of  this evening is one of the happy creators of this kind of illustration. There  are books known to all of us In which  It would be as impossible to forget the  illustrator as It Is Impossible���������and I  hope it will be long Impossible���������to forget the author."
