S; McCarter. city  solicitor, accordingly waited on Mr.  Taylor at his hotel,-and represented  the wishes of the citizens.   .  .1. W. Bennett, chairman of the  school trustees, spoke on behalf of that  body and requested that some arrange*  merits he mado towards providing free  school hooks. *Thc, Board, he said,  hac. sent a circular-letter to all the  school'trustees in the Province, and,  with two possible exceptions, the idea  had heen approved; of.^. It was stated  that in Toronto such.distribution only  cost,on an average, 11 cents per annum  for each child. This, on investigation,  would he found approximately correct  owing to the fact "that,only actual  text books were -provided, which had  an average life of three years. Slates,  scribblers, etc., were provided hy the  parents. The matter would be brought  to the' attention 'of the Ministet of  Education when he visited Revelstoke,  and steps would he taken to secure  joint action -with other Boards.  Mr. Taylor suggested that the Board  and City Council should pass a resolution covering the subject whicli he  -would be glad to endorse.  City Clerk Floyd promised to comply  with this request and stated that the  objections made came from Nulson  and Kelowna. A member of the Nelson board. Dr. Arthur, objected to the  proposition us he thought there was  danger of infection being transmitted  by passing books from hand to hand.  The objector from Kclowna thought  that the financial position of the province was not such that the necessary  outlay was possible. One suggestion  ���������was thnt threo or four provinces  should combine and issue a joint  series. Tho Board had taken stop* to  provide scribblers and ink for  the  scholars,'which  were sold at cost and  resulted in considerable saving.  Mention was made of alleged copyrights, hut did not ' receive serious  consideration, us all present thought,  this could be overcome.  Another matter that needed rectifying, Mr. Floyd said, was the stoppage  of per capita allowance when the  schojl was partially closed by an  epidemic of measles or scarlet fever.  The teachers' salaries went on and  other expenses. It would be better,  under,present conditions, In close the'  school altogether and thus lessen the  number of sessions which would  heighten the average attendance.  Mr.'Taylor promised to fake this  matter up with the authorities and  then matters the City Count il w*te  discussed, Mr. Taylor said that the  mayor had mentioned three matters lo  him, viz., water rates, localising  Chinese inhabitants.and the regulation  of cattle on the streets.  Mr. McCarter said that under the  Assessment Act all civic properly was  exempt from tax ition. and yet when  the city required water power Io inn  it's electric light system theie was no  similar exemption in the Water  Clau-ies -Act, and the city had to pay  the same as a private, individual. As  the rates for water were regulated by  the Lieut. Governor in Council, an  Order could easily be passed exempting  civic enterprises fiom these chaiges.  The electric light was not run foi  profit hut as an improvement to the  city.  There was alos an informal discussion regarding ihe confinement of  Chinese to certain districts, it being,  in tbe opinion of the city solicitor,  impossible to do so without special  legislation. The trouble was that  'some of the locations objected to were  made before the Act was passed ami  might be vested rights. Mr. Taylor  also promised to looked into this  matter.  The question of better communication across the river was also taken up  and a lot of valuable infoimillion  elicited, As, however, some of the  matters .discussed were of a semi-  private nature the HERALD, by request,  refrains from publication.  .   - Obituary.  Bv*'the death nf Mrs. W. It. Keid.  at Redlands.Califoinia, on March 22nd,  lievVlstoke loses one ot itsmost. estim-  Hlile-residents. '* The late fills. Raid had  liA'pd'in this'city for some years, and  her death at the early age of 24 years  i ame as a shock to- hei uuny friends-  Acting upon ihe advice of her physi  cian she some months ago sought iii  the climate of Call foi nia the restoration  of her health,and it was hoped that her  recovery would ensue. One baby of 0  months old survived her and the  sympathy of the community is extended to Mr Reid and the family of her  father, Mr. C. Brown. Immediately  tbe sad news was received Mr. Reirl  lett for California, wheie it ia expected  the interment will take place.  will be of gieat interest.  A Hrkald representative called on  Mi*. W. B. Pool, manager of lhe Ophir  Lade Co. and formerly 'manager of  ilie famous Nettie L. and Silver Cup,  with the object of ascertaining his  opinion regaiding another proposition  in that camp, which had been brought  to our attention, viz , the Silver Dollar  Group. A verbatim report of the  interview follows:  "After your visit to the Silver Dollar  Group, Mr. Pool, will you he good  enough to let Hekai.d readers know  what yon think of il?"    '  ������������������Certainly. The group in question  is an extension of the Btati ice, and  fuither down the mountain is joined  by the (iiiman. The sime niineial  belt that has been so much spoken  about on the Beatrice goes through the  Silver Dollar and consists of two leads  of highly argentiferous galena and I wo  leads of free milling gold quartz which  average 25 and fl feet respectively.  The two latter leads, which! examined  rather closely, have a similar appearance to thobenf the Ben trice and the  other fiee gold leads which assayed  very high, and I am J eertainly of  opinion that the Silver Dollar group is  equally valuable." 9  "What about facilities'*for,transportation?"     - -  "Thev ai e very good; anil in a short  time the product of the Silver Dollar  will be easily shipped. 'There is also  an ample supply of limber lor mining  purposes on the claims and a moie  than nifflcienc water power to run a.  stamp null is easily obtainable."  "As a prospect, do. you think the  Silver Dollar a good proposition?"  "Ceitainly. I_have very great faith  in the locality known us "Beatrice  basin," and while fully /aware of the  responsibility of a'mining man when  giving an opinion of thisjtinil.'have no  hesitation _ in saying tJiTit 'the Silver  Dollar .group, if. -ptopc-riv .handled,  should "devalop into ������,' valuable property. It's surlace-indicHtions lead  me lo infer a large body of ore in each  lead, which; in' every instance, is fully  up, to all appearances, to the values  obtained bv proved propel ties in the  vicinity. The Silver. Dollar has been  considerably improved, arid the work  done has much enhanced its value."  "Taking it all iu nil I consider that,  with a moderate expenditure of capital,  the group in question should take its  place as a regular and valuable  shipper."  When   asked about the progress of  the Ophir Lade and neighboring pro  perlies, Mr.  Pool  stated he was much  pleased   with   the  results,of   recent  The   development   done    has  will each year become more  as a shipper of the results of  milling operation." on free gold quartz.

Green and Houston, came  in ou Friday's train fiom the south.  The   local   meiiioer  had his attention  Fernie. Strike Settled  The coal strike at Fernie was settled  on Monday, as the result of n second  ballot after the miners had been  addressed hy members of the Mining  Association's conciliation committee.  The figures are as follows: Michel, for  liiO, against 15; Morrissey, for 02,  against 28; Fernie, for U, against 130,  a'total majority for of 58. It is  understood that the  agreement is fori  enough to give a HEKM.D representa  tive an account of the matter.  It seems that, ns usual, the Mail has  misrepresented and abused a political  opponent for alleged statements,  utterly without foundation. Mr.  Taylor said :  "It is perfectly true that at n recent  meeting at Ferguson I had occasion to  refer to Mr. Fred Fraser. government  agent here. I ceitainly did not condemn him, but only the methods  pursued iu this riding by the present  administration.  "The condemnation the Mail takes  so seriously to heart was simply a  comparison of the difference in the  administration of appropriations iu  this riding compared with the course  taken when I was a supporter of the  government.  "I consider that the local member is  the proper man to advise the Gorei'n  ment as to the needs of his constituency  and that the duty of the government  agent is to exercise thc poweis conferred on him by statute and instructions given by departmental heads,  f{.this course had been followed during  "Jonathan J tho past year. Mr. Fraser could have  :_��������� iv,.. _ remained much closer to his office  duties. I may further say that as I  had taken care to ascertain the public  requiiemeuls and represented the same  to ihe government, it. has been totally  unnecessary for Mr. Fraser, acting  on departmental instructions, I pie*  sume, to waste time and money which  should have been devoted to the public  service, travelling constantly round the  district.  "It is easy for * the - Mail to make  unsupported statements.- regarding  reckless extravagance; but I defy any-  'body to point 'to1 instances /of ..such a  'character while I: had any .supervision  of public expenditure. _ . , ~  ' "The Mail labouis under its usual  misapprehension in giving Mr. Fraser  credit for the "facilities afforded for  shipment of ores in the riding. The  only shipments made of -any account  Wdre from the Nettie'L. and.Triune in  the vicinityof Trout f,ake, and".the  road to Thompson's" Landing,* over  which these were hauled was built on uiy  recommendation and before Mr. Fraser  exercised control of the patronage.  Since his posilion of government agent  has been advanced to that of political  adviser the road in question has been  in very bad shape. This will be borne  out by Mr. Forbes, manager of the  Nettie L. and Silver Cup, or any of the  teamsters using it.  "As to my position as a member of  the Opposition; I was elected as a  Conservative to oppose Joe Martin and  could not~he a supporter of a govern-  ment dominated by that gentleman.

"Had   I   not  gone   into opposition  when   I   did,    it   would     have   been  necessary for me to do so last session,  owing to the action of the government  in  proposing an enormous land grant  to the Canadian Northern.   Such traR  contrary to   the   platform on which 1  was  elected   and   the land grant was |  withdrawn solely  through  the efforts  of the Opposition led by Mr. McBride.  The saving of several million acres ot  land to the   Province is ample  justification for the course we pursued.  ���������"As -the���������Premier.-in an open~Ietter  to   the  electors   of  West   Yale,   has  re-ifflrmed    his    advocacy    of   laud  subsidies I  can pursue no other course  than remain where I was Inst session."  Asked   what  he thought regarding  the ability of the government lo carry  ou   lhe  ulfairs  of  the  cuuntry,  Mr.  Taylor said:  "Considering the result of tha  elections in North Victoria and West  Yale I think the life of thegovernment  will be very short. I cannot conceive  how Col. Prior can control the House."  Mr. Green, the opposition whip,  holds a similar opinion, nnd when  asked, said: "The only thing I have  to say is that the government will be  defeated."  Mr. Houston was noncommittal and  contented himself by sayiug that all  he could support would be the passage  of the estimates and noncontentious  business followed immediately hy an  appeal tn the country on parly lines.  ���������Invitations are out for Prof. Hepburn's * Easter Ball.

"Deep calleth    unto    deep."  ������S*tut in the final analysis    the    divine  J.-T0.1 rning is the deeper and is the source  r-of the other, just   as the sea   is tlio  ���������source of the rivers that flow toward it.

Why should it be strange, after all, that the loving Father    should  ...seek to have fellowship with His ehil-  ?"drcn ?

The craving for seeing a fellow-  creature dono to death ou the stage,  or for rending about It In a noval,  has a strange fascination for many estimable people It is singular how anything unnatural is regarded in this country as verj' correct and proper; white  many things that are quite in the ordinary healthy course of nature aro regarded as sinful in the first degree, writs*  Arnold Golsworthy in "Ainslee's."  If you write an affecting little story  about a man and a woman who loves  each other very much, but eventually  overlooked the customary visit to church  before settling matters, many people will  refuse to read your book on the ground  that it Is sinful, and tlie libraries will  push it back at you with righteous indignation. But if you pen a dainty story  of a bad man waylaying the little heiress, whe stands between him and tha  family estates, and dashing her into  eternal rest with a brick, the same goad  people will probably scramble over ona  another in their haste to absorb th*  lovely details.  In the first ease, you will have dealt  with a phenomenon deliberately designed  by Nature; and, as we nil know, Natura  Is really painfully ignorant on the subject of how to run thc earth. In the  second place, you have unearthed a vile  crime, that is so far unnatural as to be  happily extremely rare���������und, as we live  in topsj'-turvy times, you have provided  a subject that good people can read without feeling at all sinful in consequence.  If the villain meets the heroine on the  cliffs, and offers her a furnished flat on  the West Side and five thousand dollars  a year for pocket money, respectable peo-  file shudder at the idea and speak harsh*  y of the book and it3 author. But if  tlie villain, with a wild cry of rage,  springs at the fair girl's dainty white  throat and hurls her over tlie edge of the  beetling dill's, so that she is dashed to  squash on'the rocks below���������that is all  right. Thero is nothing improper there.  We eari take, that story home. I saw a  play, recently, in which tlie villain of th*  pieco was a really beautiful specimen of  rascality. Ho bribM tho heiress's grand*:  mot';er to bring the little victim down;  to the river, and then hs picked the child  up in a hurry and drowned it. As 'he-  was not able to finish his choice job .be*'  fore he was disturbed, he made off when  about halfway through, so that the little child could be brought back to die on  the stiige. ���������'.'.'.���������  I do not think that anyone with his  coat off and both hands free could imagine anything more atrocious than a  scene like that. 'I. didn't hear, however,  that the public had objected to the incident in any way; though, I believe,  soma years-'ago ..they hid objected to a  public performance because some of tha  ladies had their dresses cut too low in  tho neck, or too high tit the knees, or  something of that sort. I think the idea  was. that-it wouldn't be correct for a  young man to sec a lady in public in  such scanty attire, but a nice, choice exhibition of child 'murder was evidently  calculated to do hiin a lot of good.  When writing it book or a. play,, nowadays, that will depend for its success on  tho patronage of icspettuble people, it  is aiu-nys siller to wiuick in a liberal lot  of murder, rather than to deal with people who ought to hi: .married, hut nron't.

For the Farmer.  Mushrooms may be grown in a cellar  and in boxes in a dark paleo, but it is  hotter to make a bed, consisting of fine  manure, with about one-fourth rioh  soil. The manure should be allowed to  heat and thoroughly decompose, whan  tho spawn should be planted. A temperature of about 70 degrees will  then ba required. As some experience ia  accessary, and many details must be explained, beginners should procur* spatial books on the subject.  Women and Genius.  Women are seldom born with genius.

A aeries of valuable experiments hat  just been completed   at Storrs Agricultural Experimental Station, Connecticut,  with a tuberculous herd of cows.    Tha  results of these efforts to oradicate tha  disease with a minimum of financial loss  are of enhanced importance, in view of  the   fact that, while heated discussions  are going on all around us concerning  thc relation of tuberculosis to the publio  health, controversialists have too often  lost sight of the practical utility of experiments.     Here,   therefore,   we   have  something tangible upon whicli to act.  In 1S90 the Connecticut Agricultural  College owned a herd or about fifty head  of  cows and young cattle.      Prior  to  this date  the  herd  consisted   of  grade  animals, mostly of Jersey and Guernsey  blood, but in that year fifteen registered  Jerseys, Guernseys and  Ayrshiros were  purchased.        Since     that     time     the  acquisitions to the herd have been from  the natural  increase  of  these animals,  and   the   occasional   purchase  of grade  cows.     Up to October, 1SU7, the entire  herd  wns   untainted; .but  in .November,  IS',18,-a-cow, which had dropped a strong,  ������������������vigorous   calf in  the   previous August,  and -.from Xew Year's Day to, the 1st of  NovciiiLer in I he'latter year had yielded   '..02  pound's  nf  butter,  fell.'suddenly. .Hi, at'd. ns'l.hero were no hopes of rc-  rnvory. she was skmahtercd in November,   1SS8.  a   post-mortem   examination  showing a g.ner:'..'Jzc!l and advanced ensp  of  tuberculoids.       Tlie   herd   was   then  tested with tuberculin, when, twelve ani-  niaiij responded,  making'.a total of fifteen  out of a  herd   of forty-eight animals' that   had  contracted   the   disease  in o:ie year. di,mc>i->li.ilirg how remarkably infectious it i=.  The following are some of the main  practical conclusions .arrived at from  these experiments:���������  The elimination of tuberculosis from  a herd is a gradual'pmccs*.. One tuberculin test is not sullicieut, as neiv eases  will develop from time to time.  All the breeds represented in the herd  were about equally susceptible.". Twenty  per cent, of the Jerseys,' twenty-six per  .cent..'.of. the Guernseys, twenty-one per  pent, of the Ayrshiros, and twenty per  cent, of the Holsteins responded to the  tuberculin test.  The largest producers in the herd were  not more susceptible to tuberculosis  than those of thc least productive capacity.  The disease was not inherited. None  of the offspring of the tuberculin animals, seventeen in number, have developed tha disease.  Repeated injections of tuberculin  often result in a failure to respond.  Sixteen animals that had responded once  to tuberculin failed to respond to subsequent injections in ten out of* twenty  instances, or 50 per cent.  The post-mortem examination of certain animals. which previous to  slaughter were apparently in good physical condition, showed the disease extensive, virulent and evidently in the infectious state.  The post-mortem examination of certain animaU, slaughtered in some cases  sixteen months after first response,  showed mere traces of the disease, which  had then made little or no progress, and  the ency****-ed condition of the nodules  misht indicate possible recovery.  The slow  progress  of  the disease  in  certain animals and the Tsipid progress  in others took place at the same time  i under the same sanitary condition*,  ia  Tha "Savag-aa' ' Banquet.  different  onder if men know that so few women that we might almost say no  woman who is perfectly happy ever  seeks a career?

The Chairman,  in proposing "Our Guest," regretted very  much the absence of Sir Edward Clarke  and expressed his fear that his absence  was due to his mixing too much in highly civilized society. (Laughter.���������Sir Edward waa engaged as one uf the counsel  in the Hartopp divorce case.) Tlie toast  he would couple with tbe nume of Sir  Harry Johnston.  Sir Harry Johnston said Africnn savagery was fast disappearing under th*  influence of a not altogether compensating civilization. One wf his first African banquets was in a wild part of  West Africa. He was a very timid guest,  because he had been hauled out of hia  canoe on the Upper Cross Kiver, nnd his  porters were imprisoned. It was a feast  "in honor of ancestors," and lie was told  that the dinner to some extent consisted of tho ancestors themselves. (Laughter.) " He asked about the composition  of one rather agreeably flavored dish ot  red paste, and was told it was Man! It  was made of triturated relative, which  had been previously smoked over a iiro  of weeds, and had been mixed with palm-  oil, red pepper, and salt. Having consumed this enticmct, he became a member of the tribe. (Laughter.) His last  African banquet wns in very dilferent  circumstances. It wa9 little more limn  a year ago. It was an assembly of  blacks, but the menu was in French, and  the feast was certainly cooked under  French influences, so that in this as in  other matters Africa was fast losing its  savagery, and would in time become as  tnme as much of this life seemed to him.  But they (tho elub) were developing a  little mild savagery, for they were trying to bring to bear a little more of tho  real into our artificial life, and per'-raps  in that aspect of savafgery they were doing a very .wholesome work.

Among the royal betrothals recently  announced, and which is of widespread  interest, is that of thc Grand Duke William iSrnest of Saxe-Weimtir and the  beautiful and popular Princess Caroline  of Ilucs3.

The old journalism has its points ot  superiority over the new, saya Tho London Star.     The Times the other morning hnd a great "scoop" story of tha  disastrous  defeat   of   the   Emperor   of  Morocco by the Pretender, and printed  it in the usual place for news from Fez,  on   the   foreign  page,   with   the  plain  heading, "The Moorish Revolt. Sultan's  Army Routed."     Tho new journalism  would have filled a column with headlines alone.   The story comes from Tho  Times' own correspondent, who got away  from Fez just in time, and arrived at  Tangier  on  Saturday morning,  having  ridden through without change of horse,  and the last 90 miles without halting.  The correspondent in question is Mr.  Walter B.  Harris, tho well-known traveller and author, who has throughout  kept The Times exceptionally well informed of the progress of this Moroccan  trouble, and who has had more than ono  interview with the Emperor himself. Mr.  Harris was  reputed, just a  year ago,  to have been attacked and 'robbed by  Arabs in the interior of Morocco,  but  that story fortunately proved to be unfounded.    He has written several books  on Morocco and Western Asia, and accompanied Sir Arthur Nicholson's Special Embassy to Morocco in  1800.    He  married a daughter of the fourth Earl  of Mcxborough, whose second daughter  married   the  Prince    Lowcnstein   SVer*  thein,  who  disappeared  so  mysteriously three years ago, and was a f ter ward i  reported  to  have  fallen  while fighting  as an adventurer against the Americans  in tho Philippine war.

So Contract Labor.  Six British workmen, who arrived at  Sydney on board the steamship Orontes  under a contract with a clothing manufacturer, have been refused permission  to land under the immigration act.  : A Melbourne correspondent of The  Times, referring" to the matter, says -.���������  Sir Edmund Barton says that it was  imperative to refuse'.'- permission to the  six English hatmakers to land at Sydney  because the law forbids the admission  of men coming under engagement to  labor. This provision was made on  the motion of the leader of the; Labor  party when the immigration bill was before Parliament. The Government then  concurred, the object being to prevent  employers from importing men ;. during  strikes. The community are surprised  at the action of the Government in now  enforcing the provision at the bidding  of a trade union desiring to prevent new  men from entering the territory of the  Commonwealth. Their trade apart, the  opinion of the Labor party is strongly  against excluding fellow-subjects from  England, whom Australia would rather  welcome.

Stopping Trains,  lit a. recent report to'tho State Department at Washington the American  Consul at Berne, Adblph L. Frankenthal;  mentions a' test for stopping railway  trains, which he witnessed at the request of an inventor. Thc Consul rodo  in tho cab of a locomotive drawing four  passenger cars at a speed of 30 miles an  hour. At a predetermined place the  Westinghouse brakes wero set without  any action of the : engineer. The' stoppage of the train was indicated on a*  dial, the brakes were then released, and  a whistle, which had already once sounded as a warning, of trouble, now .reported the brakes; thrown on.  Two pieces of apparatus arc necessary  for this service. One is a lever on the  truck, which Is raised into the right position whenever the. signal is set to  stop a train., lb does not matter whether the signal itself is operated by a,  wire, compressed air or electricity. The  lever moves when the signal does. Tho  other part of the apparatus is mounted  on the engine. There is an arm hanging  down in such a position that it will be  moved whenever the train arrives���������', at  the place where the lever is, if the lever  sticks up. Ono might suppose that the  shock of contact would hurt either the  lever or the arm; but the latter ia  mounted so as to awing in such a way  a.s lo escape injury, and yet perform'  'the duty assigned to it.. That portion of  the mechanism which is up in the cab,  when it is actuated by the stroke below, sets the brakes with a degree of  rapidity that is variable, and that ia  controlled by previous adjustment.  ������������������Mr.'.'.Frankenthal-' says that several  trains on Swiss . roads have: been  equipped with this apparatus provisionally, for purposes of experiment, and the  hope is entertained thnt the Government will require its general adoption.  On trial trip3 in Switzerland a speed of  37 miles an hour was developed. In  Austria test were made at various  speeds, the maximum being 02 miles an  hour.. One road in Germany, oh which  several accidents have happened���������the  Grossherzogliche Badische���������has ordered  a number of its expresses to be thus  equipped.  The Brandt Swindle.  According to the Marquise de Fonto-  noy, Germany, like France, has its Humbert swindle, that is to say, a swindle  based on a mythical inheritance to the  extent of many millions of dollars. It  has just been brought to a close by the  condemnation of the alleged heirs to  the estate to terms of penal servitude  by the Berlin courts. It is known as  the Brandt affair, and, as in the case  of the Humbert-Crawford sw.indlo in  France, has led to ull sorts of prominent  pcople=being=di'aggcd'=into-iunwilling*tind-  unjustified notoriety. Briefly speaking,  it aceniH that fifty "or sixty years ago  some peoplo of the name of Brandt, citizen* of the little town; of Acherslehcn,  went to thc father of the present Count  Douglas, who wits filling lhe office of  their Mayor, told liim that thoy wero  heirs to n fortune left by an uncestor  of theirs at Amsterdam nt the close of  tbe eighteenth century, and asked him  to help them in getting hold of what  was due to them from tho Dutch authorities. Old Count Douglas, whose son  is now the most intimate friend and  crony of the Kaiser, paid little attention  to the affair, warned the peoplo that:hs  believed it to be a myth, and paid no  further attontion to tho matter. Nothing mora was heard about the matter  until in 1888, whicli-lhc Brandts started  in to endeavor-to obtain money from  the present Count Douglas on tha  ground that his father had taken their  papers and had milde use of them in  order to appropriate'to himself tbo  iirnndt fortune tit Amsterdam, amounting, thoy declared, to 8,000,000 florins.  Tliey pointed out that in the '00s th*  wealth of the Douglases was greatly increased, and insisted that this was due  to the Brandt money. Lawsuits- which  they brought demonstrated the complctu  absurdity of the story. In spite of this  they went on accusing Count Douglas of  haying wrongfully: secured possession of  their mythical inheritance.and obtained  loans right and left on the strength of  stories thnt the courts would yet forco  Count Douglas to disgorge. -  "I beg your pardon, doctor," said tho  toastmastcr, nfter the dinner was over,  "for introducing you inadvertently 'as  'professor.'"

His complexion was a  rich, clear olive; hia eyes brown and  bright) hla hair ahort and black; his  ���������aouth full-lipped, yet firm.  There waa a good-looking girl who  aved opposite tha good-looking man. Tha  rirl was small and dainty and flower-  like. Her face was pink-and-white and  lovely; her cyaa big and blue; her hair  tight and aoft and wavy; her mouth  iiniill and red. And the good-looking  girl was good. The good-looking man  joon found that out. He smirked at tha  rood-looking girl. But she only smiled  buck, sadly. '   '  And the man became intensely inter-  .������������������sled in the good-looking girl, and, finally, he spoke to' her.  "Let me talk* to you," he whispered;  'I know everything."  "Then I cannot let you talk to mc."  answered the girl, quietly, "for I'know  nothing." She paused, nnd then went  on: "But I suspect a lot. I suspect that  men are either wolves or sheep; and I  suspect that they are mostly wolves; 1  like sheep."  And bhe girl walked nway. But the  man stood still. He was dumfounded.  The girl had not fallen in love with hiin!  Instead, he had fallen in love with her!  "And sho doesn't like wolves!" he  mused; "and she does like sheep!" Then  ho went and donned; sheep's clothing.  The good-looking innii ceased to smirk  at the good-looking girl.   But he smiled  nt her, sndly, even as sha had smiled at  him.   And he loved her with all his heart  and soul.   Finally, he spoke to her again  "I respect and revere you," he whispered.  "And I respect you," said the girl.  After that, the good-looking man and  the good-looking girl were often together.   Tho man was always courteous and  devoted, and the girl was always gentle  and kind.   They lovedjCnch other, dearly.  One day a good-looking woman, who  waa bad, came to see the good-looking  girl, who was good.   And the good-looking woman, who wns bud, said  to  the  good-looking girl, who was good, "The  good-looking man who comes to see you  is not good; he is bad.   I, too, nm bid.  But I will not let him be bad with you."  "Oh 1"  moaned  the  good girl,, "is ho  then a; wolf?"  "Yes," snickered; the bad woman, "he  is a wolf I"  "A wolf in sheep's clothing!" sobbed  the good girl.  "Yes, a wolf in sheep's clothingl"  sneered the bad woman.  Before the bad woman left, the good-  looking man came. The good-looking man  gasped. The bad uoiiian laughed. But  the good girl cried.  "So you wear sheep's clothing, eh?"  jeered the bad woman.  "Bo you?*' wailed tho good'girl. "Is it  true?"  "Yes; it is true," answered the good-,  looking man; "and I always shall wear  it!"  "No, you shall not!" snarled the had  woman. "You shall not wear sheep's  clothing. You are a wolf!" And sho  sprang at him and tore off his sheep's  clothing.

All day long he has scarcely left her  tide; when he did so, it was with reluctance, and he returned as soon as  he could. *  .Marjorle's heart beat high as she no-  -need this, beat high with pleasure, for,  short as had been her acquaintance  with this young man, she was already  beginning to like him more than was  irell for her peace of mind.  There *was a frankness about him  which was very winning, and this,  coupled with his attractive face and  high intellectual capacity, could scarcely fall to charm a girl so young, so inexperienced, and so impressionable as  ���������Uarjorle.  The clear, observant eye of Mr. Hyde  saw all that was going* forward.  He made no attempt to detach his  nephew from the society of the lovely  young stranger; nay, his countenance  even lighted up with benevolent pleas-  ore as he watched them.  It might have been one of the dearest  desires of his heart to bring about art  attachment between the two.  * Madeline, on the contrary, seemed  displeased by her cousin's attentions  lo her companion.  "When she could keep him apart from  her she did so, and seemed, moreover,  lo find a malicious joy in doing it.

"When the two girls retired that  evening, Madeline called Marjorie Into  her room.  "Come and alt with me for a few  ���������minutes," she said.  And, as they sat beside the fire to**  {ether, she began almost immediately,  to speak of her two cousins.  . Of Edgar she said little.

Aa to heriace, it was shaded by ha  hand.  Almost wild with excitement, Marjorie went to do her bidding.  The moment tha door had closed ot  her, Madeline drew her hand from before her face, revealing it ghastly wltl  horror.  An awful shudder ran through net  frame.  "My God!" she cried, in a sort a  desperate agony.   "Oh! My God."  It was three or four minutes heron  Marjorie returned.  The cherished fragment had been pit*  away .so carefully that it had taken hei  some time to find it.  Those three or four minutes had sufficed to restore Madeline to somethlnf  like composure.  When Marjorie quitted the room n  was with difficulty, Miss Hyde kepi  herself from fainting; but she had  dipped her face into a ewer of ice-  cold water, and by that means ha<  brought some slight vestige of coloi  Into lt again.  It had braced.her nerves, and pro*  pared her to think and plan.  "See!" said Marjorie, kneeling dowi  on the hearthrus In front of her, am!  disclosing a tiny fragment of blui  enamel in the corner of an Ivory box;  "If you put lt on the locket it fits ex*  actly."  It did Indeed.  How strange it seemed that that do  tached fragment should meet with thi  stolen locket after all those years.  "How long have you had it? When  did you buy it? Oh, will you tell mo  please?" cried Marjorie, still In great  excitement.  Miss Hyde passed her hand acroa  her brow, with a gesture of weariness  as" she said���������  "I've been trying to think, Marjorie  I have so many articles of jewelry, anc  have had this particular locket so long  that I am not quite certain for the moment where it came from. Ah! I. remember now. I bought it in London-  It was about five years since, I think���������  at a shop in the neighborhood of Ludgate Hill. It was a second-hand shop  and I saw the locket one day in thi  window, and ��������� went In to- buy it Wi  Were living In London, then."  "And the shop was near Ludgatt  Hill?" .questioned Marjorie; breath  le-isly.  "Somewhere near there���������in thi  neighbourhood of St. Paul's, at an)  rate.

The locket seemed but a slender cluV  by which to trace her father's murder  er, after all'.  "And it was chipped when ..yoii  bought it?*' she asked, after a pause.  "Oh, yes," said   Madeline,   wlthou  hesitation.  After a moment or two she added-*-  "I didn't notice that till I had  "���������-*:  edly, and without noticing what they.  were, but after a minute or two sha  turned deathly pale, and    uttered   a   Kolne> Rnd ���������**. alQn*t seem worth while  jasplng cry. w return It."

She had risen to her feet In hor flrs\  ���������excitement: but now she was too much  agitated to'continue In that attitude,  Trembling, she sank into her seal  again.  &T  ���������<r  ���������is'��������� ***  1 "See!" exclaimed Marjorie, too mud  agitated herself to notice the agitation  of her friend.

As she spoke she laid one hand on  ���������Mnrjorle's, while the other she pressed  to her own forehead, half shading her  face.  "I seldom speak of it," eald MarJ-orie,  ladly, Vtor it is very, very painful to  me. I was a little child at tha time,  and I saw the murderer."  "What?"  Madeline's Tolce rose almost to a  scream, so greatly was she affected by  this Intelligence." =   Marjorie hastened to explain, that it  Iras only the shape, not the features, of  the murderer she had seen/and then,  very briefly and simply, sha rotated  the main Incidents of the tragedy  which had cast so dark a shadow over  her young life.  Madeline, still shading her face with  her hand, listened in silence and when  the story was concluded she said, very  quietly and calmly���������  "Marjorie, I'm glnd you'vo told ma  this, because, knowing how much  you've had to suffer, I shall be aide to  sympathize with you���������and .help you,  too, I hope. But I think you are wise  J in not speaking of it to every one."  "I couldn't do that," said Marjorie,  eoftly, "even after all these years, it  is'too painful to me. I did love my  father���������he was so good to me. Oh, ho  was kind and good to everybody. I  don't think he ever did an unkind act  in his life." '  ���������  A tear:had trembled on her long,  dark.lashes; but now she dashed it  away, and her beautiful face was very  stern, as she added���������  "The man who killed him must have  6oen fiendishly cruel! Some day his  crime will find him out I feel it���������I  feel It here!"  She pressed her hand to her heart.  "And would you "wish that, Marjorie?" asked Miss Hyde, with an accent of horror. "You are so gen tlo  nnd���������"  The look of sternness deepened oa  Mnrjorle's face.  "If I could trace my father's mur.  derer. and give hlni. up to justice, I  would most certainly do it," she answered. "I hope I am not vindictive.  lfl no other Instance in all   my   lite  Xmve I ever felt the slightest wisn io  punish an enemy. But this man���������this  murder���������deserves neither pity nor  pardon. For the sake of money he  killed one of the best and kindest men  that ever lived. He has two lives to  Answer for. He murdered my father,  and broke my mother's heart."  Marjorie was standing erect now.  The lamplight fell upon her face, re-  ���������realing thc firm Iiues about the mouth,  the look of steady purpose In tbe lustrous, dark-lashed eyes.  All the softness and gentleness had  fled from her face.  Sho was no longer a soft, tender  girl, but a woman with a wrong to  avenge.  The sight of the Uicket. which was  to have been her dead mother's valentine, had transformed her thus.  If ever fate delivered that midnight  murderer Into her bunds, he would  11 ml this slender, delicate young creature a stern and bitter Nemesis to  reckon with.  "I cannot wonder at your feelings."  eald Madeline, slowly. "If I were In  your place perhaps I should feel the  same. It was an awful���������a terrlblo  crime. But when one thinks of the  (penalty the law awards to lt���������to bo  hanged by the neck���������"  She broke off with a shudder, and  eald no more.  "It is horrible, but it Is just," said  Marjorie calmly, though aha too, trembled.  "But If," resumed Madeline, after a  pause, "nine years have elapsed, and  the police haven't been able all this  time to discover the slightest clue, it  ts unlikely they will ever find ono  now."  "And yet yon see I have been dl������  ffected to this locket after all these  years."  "Yes, hut what goood can that do"!*  eald Madeline, hurriedly and with a  slight change of color. "This man  from whom*I bought It was a respectable tradesman. Most likely it has  passed through several hands before  it came to him. After all these years,  it would be next to impossible to trace  it."  "Perhaps so. And yet the very sight  sf It has given me a strange feeling,  as though lt will not be long before tho  murderer Is found. I have faith to believe that my father's blood has not  cried for vengeance all these years in  ���������fain."  CHAPTER V.      '  The Bit of Blue Enamel.  The next morning Madeline found  fcerself so unwell that it was clear sha  would not be able to go down stairs for  breakfast, if, indeed, she were not confined to her room for several days.  Marjorie constituted herself her personal1 attendant, nursing her'with solicitude, and feeling her heart drawn  towards her in great tenderness now  that she lay weak and ill.  There was no coldness in Madeline's  manner now.  She clung to Marjorie as though she  Coved herr and wanted to win her love'.  And very soon Marjorie did love her,  tor, as Madeline unfolded her nature  to her day'by day, she found in It a'  wealth of generous, qualities such as  could not fail to touch her heart.  Mr. Hyde was deeply concerned  about his daughter, nnd visited her  sickroom at least half a dozen times  a day.  Edgar Hyde,.though he made con-  Itant inquiries, did .not strike Marlowe as being overwhelmed with grief.  The doctor suid that Madeline was '  ffl a highly feverh'.h ptate. and It jvhk  ������������������**. *���������_-������*���������������������������  concluded ��������� she had taken cold ��������� while  skating.  It seemed unlikely, now that there  would; be any torch-light skating parly, as had been suggested, on St.' "Valentine's day.  Madeline was confined to her,room  for c. week, and although Marjorie de-  roted herself to her, yet there were  times���������a great many of them���������when  she was thrown into the company of  the gentlemen downstairs. "  Mr. Hyde was extremely fond ot  music, and Marjorle's singing so delighted him that he begged her to come  downstairs for an hour or two every  evening, while a maid sat with Madeline.  That both of the young me* admire*  >er,_MarJerie_'*������uld_not:_JwiP^_h8intt_  aware of.  Edgar would hang over her as she sat  at the piano, singing the sweet sacred  melodies his uncle loved; and It wus  evident he regarded with jealous anger  any attempt of bis brother's to oust  . him from his place.  This troubled Marjorie.  In the flrst place, she did not partle-  elarly care for Edgar; and on that ue-  countalone his attentions would havo  been distasteful; in the second place,  elie believed liim to be, If not absolutely tbe affianced husband.of Madeline,  the man on whom her heart's best love  was set, and whose love she had somo  right to expect in return.  Charles, on the other hand, she.llki-d  exceedingly; nay, there Was some danger of net -.liking ripening Into lovo.  Ills frank,'pleasant face was fast bo-  .coming the most attractive thing lier  eyes could look upon.  His voice and his smile had power, ta;  make her heartbeat fast.  One day she went .for a run in. the  ffood3 at the .back of the house.  Madeline had declared she was grow*  Ing pale with her unremitting a'.'encl-  ance on her, and had urged her to go  out for half an hour to breathe tha  clear, cold air.  "There are snowdrops in the wood,  Marjorie," she said. "Get some for me,  please. I think they are my favorite  llowera."  So to the wood Marjorie went, anil  was looking for tho graceful snow  flowers at the rcots of the sheltering  trees, when Cl'arlea Hyde came aloug  one of the paths.    His frank, healthful face was glow  tng with exercise, and bright with good  humor,    lie WrtUcu with a brisk, nr.n  tread, whistiictc a lively tune.  He stopped short at sight of Mar*  Jorie, his bright face growing brighter  than ever.  "Why, Marjorie." he exclaimed', joy**  ously, "you here? What a pleasant  surprise!"  The girl blushed rosily, and stooped  to gather a snowdrop that grew at untl  feet.  How lt had come about that he oe������  tasionally called her Marjorie she her-*  self scarcely knew.  Perhaps because his uncle, in picas**  ant, fatherly fashion, had fallen into  this mode of address; perhaps it w*aa  elmply because he was an audacious  young man, and liked to do lt.  However, this may be Marjorie by  no means objected to hear lt, and  thought her name never sounded so  ���������weet as when it fell from his .lips.  "Shall we sit down a moment? Will  It give you cold?" he   said,   pausing  against the trunk ot a fallen tree.  "Oh, no!" \  "Havo yon heard about the attempt*  ���������A burglary at Mortimer House?" he  asked, a little abruptly, after they had  tat for a moment or two.  "No; when was it?"  "Well, It happened last night. For*  Innately some ot the servants heard!  a noise, and gave the alarm In time.  Nothing waa taken; but, on the other  band, tha burglars made their escape  In safety. It Is suspected they belong  to a wonderfully clever gang, - who  have baffled the police for years. They  gain entrance into houses In the most  skilful manner, and do not atop at violence���������or even murder���������lt they meet  ���������With any resistance."  Aa he aald this, his eyes were fixed  OB Marjorle's faee with a keen, though  furtive gaze.  It was aa though he wero watching  for soma look of suspicion���������as though  he were half expecting that his description of the mysterious gang ot  thieves would awaken some special in*  terest in her mind.  And It did���������though not in the wa),  lie had expected.  Her cheek flushed, and her breath  came fast. She uttered such an exclamation of surprise and horror that  It startled him.  "What is it, Marjorie?" he asked,  looking at her curiously.  "Mr. Hyde, my father was murder**  ed at midnight by a thief who camoto  rob him!"  He looked amazed���������bewildered.  "Your -father? ��������� when? ��������� how long  ago?" he queried, in a voice which, try  as he might, he could not keep quito  free from excitement..  "Nine years ago. We lived in West*  tnoreland then���������at rather a lonely  house. My father was writing a book,  and he always sat up late alone. _ One  night���������it was Valentine's eve���������he was  murdered���������stabbed to the heart by  some villain for the sake of a hundred  pounds in bank notes which had been  paid to him that day."  .Again the young, man cast on her a  strange look.  "I fancy I remember something- ol  that murder," he said slowly.    "But  the name���������surely it was not St. Clair?"  "Oh. no!"  And'then Marjorie explained hrieflj,  how she had come to change her name.  She']told him, too, that her full name  was Ethel Marjorie," and that' it was as  Elhel Bruce she had been spoken ot  in the newspapers at the time of the  murder.  "Tell me all about* it,, will you?" he  said, and she comp-isd, beginning with  tier father's mysterious dream, and  soncludlng with the extraordinary, coincidence of Madeline's possession ot  lhe''locket.  So amazed was he nt this that he  eoiild not repress a start, and,' if he had  not kept his eyes bent on the ground,  Marjorie must hnve marvelled at tho  suange look in them.  She went on to tell him how she had  preserved the little piece of blue enamel, and, by that means, was able to  prove, beyond the shadow of a doubt,  that Madeline's locket -was the one  Which had been stolen from her fathei  an that fatal night.  "That bit of blue enamel Is of the uU  ���������aost importance!" - exclaimed Hyde,  raising his head far the first time during the narrative. "Take every care of  lt.   Where do you keep it, Marjorie?"  "Oh, It is quite safe. "Ihaven'tkept  It all these years to lose It now.    I  Canada, in 1884.

Of Canada  the  author  says  that  the  Government  is free, but "'learning has made so little  progress that  few  of the natives can  cither read  or  write."    He  announces.,  also  that  "at  an  early  period  of   life  the Canadian is healthy and robust, but  his strength is not of long duration, and  he soon looks old.

During the last two or three years ft,  great deal of interest has been taken in  the subject of feeding roots to swine.  Formerly a prejudice existed against  them on account of an idea that titeir  use was responsible for a considerable  portion of the soft bacon produced in  the Canadian packing houses at certain  .seasons of the year. Careful experiment  has shown, however, that roots can be  fed in moderata quantities ,combined  with other feed without any , injurious  eti'ects on tbe quality of the pork produced. As heavy root crops can be easily and economically grown in nearly all  those portions of Canada where swine-  raising is carried on extensively, the fact  that roots can be profitably fed without injury to the bacon, and with positive bcnelit so far as thc general thrift  of the animal is concerned, becomes of  considerable importance to our farmers.  ���������li'iglit pounds of mangels or    carrots  and about the same weight, or a little I  less, of sugar beets arc equal in value to  one pound of grain.

Artichokes have a'feeding value similar to that of potatoes.  Turnips have not been found as satisfactory as mangels.or sugar beets for  swine feeding, either in amount of gain  produced or in the readiness with which  they aro eaten by pig3. Indeed no  other root seems iiioro satisfnctoiv.  considering the yield per ii<";e, pnlatabil-  lty and feeding value, than the large  red mangel.  The experiments conducted  by  Prof.  Day and Prof. Grisdalc and myself, as  well as the experience of many of   our  best farmers, indicate that    the   "most-  economical  nnd  satisfactory ration   for j  swine feeding contains equal parts by j  weight of grain and roots.

There are rumors of an agreement to  pass the estimates and appeal to th������  country on party lines, but nothing  ban been given out directly by the  parties concerned. Thos.

The Vancouver Province, acting  possibly as an "inspired'' organ, has  started a crawfishing campaign for thn  Grits, and now advocates an enlarged  membership of the Senate. Considering the fact that a few years ago the  Senate was " a monument of obstruction '' and " a menace to the will of  the people." Bro. Nichol's position is  somewhat humorous. Perhaps he  thinks the other new .Senator should  lie a good Grit editor, too.  The Koss Government has been  urged by prominent Liberals to resign  owing to the Gamey charges. The  request has nothing to do with the  morality of the case, but is brought  forward merely on the off chance that  Lhe voters in Ontario may forget  somewhat of the scandal before next  Dominion election.

(Edited  by the OQlco Hoy niul set up hy the  ��������� Devil."  It   is   proposed, in   this column, to  give   week   IA*   wi*ok   a   synopsis   of  lioUoii   cuntnineil   in   the    Kootonny  Mail.    Tho stulV  in question does not  iippcar   in   this    "Story   Companion"  hut, tlio editorial section, evidently the  work of tho loenl lyre.  The principal   pipe   dream   in   last  week's   issue   is   it   yarn    that   Price  Kllison,   31.P.P.,  of  Vernon,  will be  to   the    Government    next  liec-msii   Proiniot*   Prior   has  lo   acquire   und   sub-divide  opposed  scission,  proposed  liivjro evtates. It i.s truo that* M.  l-'llisnn has a fair sized fiirm, but  eouipnred with the holdings of Lord  Aberdeen and others it is certainly  not a Int-go estate. The humour of the  situation is found in the fact that the  minister of Piimnee is part owner and  iiiitnii(rer of thu largest estate in the  province. .U New Westminster last  full, when addressing the Forestry  Association, Mr. Prentice stated with  pride that with his father and father  in law lie held no less than 212 square  miles ! Whereat one wns disposed to  say, "Thank God, his wife, mother  urd mother inlaw are not in the grab  game too.'*  Our contempor.-try also devotes a  couple of paragraphs to laudation of  ,1. Bullion Ilobson, the Curilioo hydraulic man, terming him "enterprising, skilful and generous.'' Without  wishing to detract from the professional qualifications of the gentleman  in question it seems rather too much  to class as "generous" the man who  employs more Mongolian labor than  any mine manager in the Province  except Dunsmuir,. And of course tl ���������  lately honorable "Jim" is beyond  redemption.  The Mail also states that during the  present strike the C. P. It. has "ap  pointed" special constables. Now the  appointment of such is entirely within  the province of the crown and its law  ollirers, as, although the C. P..R. it*  paying the men in question; they  cou'd not exercise their functions without being sworn in. The trouble both  during the present and the trackmen's  strike.was'a'nd.is that Attorney-Gen-  ernl* El'erts permits - the unlimited  swearing in of peace officers. This  could any day be prevented by instructions being i.-sued to J. P's. not lu  exeicise this power unless specifically  requiredjSo to do by the  Government.  Jt is amusing to see our friend "on  the next street holding up us right tin*  course of New Zealand in refusing to  Crown grant mineral hinds, merely  leasing them, while a week or two ago  he shouted for Crown grants for  . hydraulic placer lands in B.

Apropos  the   renewal of the Shake-  I  spearc-JJacon   controversy,   an   article  by William Sheppard In   the  "Era" on  the   making;  of   anagrams   Is   enlightening*.     "A   correspondent   has   asked  me,"   says   Mr.  Sheppard,  "to furnish  ���������him'   with   some   good   anagrams   on  the    names    of    famous    people.    He  further      Informs       me       that       ho  has    spent    a    good    deal    of    time*  trying lo make nn acceptable anagram  on the United States, and has failed to  du so.   With reference to this failure, 1  would remind him that he must not be  discouraged.   The task he has attempted Is nn enormous one.   United States  lin* just a dozen letters.   Now, mathematicians will  tell him  that a dozen  letters  will   admit  of  seven   thousand  nnd 'twenty-nine millions (7,02!).000,000)  of  possible   transpositions.    Old  Camden has vividly described the vexation  of soul undergone "by nnagrammntlsts  when oft-repcateil effort, with nn oft-  repeated   approximation     to    success,  have  tlnally  resulted   In   loss  of   time  and  labor:   'Some have been seen,'  he  says, 'to bite their pens, scratch their  heads, bend their brows, bite their lips,  beat   their  board,   their    paper,   when  they   were    fair    for    somewhat   and  caught nolhlug herein.'   Again, let him  comfort himself hy the reflection that  no one has yet succeeded In making a  trood    English    anagram    on    United  States. .   Anagrammatlsts    have   been  forced'to fall back upon .the more fluent  and   manageable  Latin.    It  has  been  discovered   that    the    letters  forming  United States may bo transposed Into  the following Latin words:  In te deus stat. "God stands In thee."  Inde tutus stat.   "Hence thou stand*  est .safely."  Dentatus est. "He has teeth," the  "he" evidentlyreferriwg to Uncle Sam.  /Desiste, nutat! "Hands off, he  sTiakes!" a sentiment which may have  been applicable in 1S61, when It was  made, but Is now, thank Heaven, without meaning or point.  Slste, nudat te. "Stop, he strips  thee," which might be revived to-day  by the Anti-Imperialists in their warnings to our new subjects in 'Cuba and  the Philippines.  A te desistunt. "They keep off from  thee," which Is exactly the attitude  which the anil's 'wish the United States  '- assume towards Cuba and the PitfJ.  NOTICE.

Commenting on the phenomenal sale  of some recent novels, a correspondent  of the "Book Buyer" writes interestingly-of notable .books that years ago  were popular, but since have become  practically unknown.    He says:  There was once a very popular  preacher who wrote many books, and  for every one there .wtas a large demand, on the day of publication. But  most of them passed out of print while  he was still living, and I doubt If a  single one of them Is now kept in  stock-by any bookstore. Not many  years ago appeared a book which the  laboring classes and the tenement-  house population bought so eagerly as  to run the sale Into the hundreds of  thousands, because they thought It  showed how an equal distribution of  all property might be brought, about.  Now it appears to be dead. Helper's  "Impending Crisis" attained a sale' of  140,000 copies, forty years a.go, which  was as great an achievement as half a  million would be to-day. .That was  because of Its bearing on burning political questions and the fact that It  was systematically attacked in Congress. Now you can occasionally And  .a_etra*f_copy_of_lt_ln_a_second-hand-  ehop. Tourfjee's "Fool's Errand," twenty years later, reached about the same  circulation. For purposes of comparison, this and "Uncle Tom's Cabin"  would seem to be closely analogous,  But while the "Fool's Errand" has almost, If not quite, gone out of circulation, -Mrs. Stowe's great novel, thirty  years older, still sells largely'in several  editions, and at many libraries Is called*  for more frequently than any ether  book. Mrs. Stephens' "Fashion and  Famine" was the best selling novel of  its day, and three translations of lt  ���������were published "in France. But to-day  tt Is difficult to find a copy of It anywhere except in the lumber-room of a  public library. Another example may  be seen In the midden popularity and  subsequent deadness of "Robert Els-  mere," the author of which is still  writing successful books. ."Were lt not  that It might seem like telling tales out  of school, something could be said of  certain books that have begun life  with a phenomenal sale, which has  stopped suddenly and unaccountably,  as If at some mysterious signal.  For the reverse of the picture, the  most notable example Is afforded by  "Ben Hur." This book had no sale  worth mentioning for a year after its  publication, and was considered dead.  Now lt Is said to have attained a circulation surpassing that of any other  American novel, wdth the single exception of "Uncle Tom's Cabin."  Someone might prepare a curious  and entertaining article on three  classes of books jn light literature: 1.  Those that have had an Immediate  large sale, and have then gone to oblivion. 2. Those that have had no sale  at flrst, but afterward have met with  large success. 3. Those that have  been popular at the start and never  lost Wtelr popularity. The first class  would be the largest. Probably the  second -class -would be the smallest.  Tlwo that .would shine In the third are  the "Autocrat at the Breakfast Table"  ���������nd "Reveries of a Bachelor."  For Sale.

"Have you bought the clolhes, Tom?"  ;  "Yes, Mary."  "And brought the hill with you?"  1 "Yes, Mary."  "Then let me s*~*e lt."  Tom Bedson meekly drew a piece ot  carefully folded paper from his waistcoat pocket, and with a rueful look  handed it to the young lady who had  been subjecting; him to cross-examination. And a very imperious young wo-  tD.an~.she looked as she leaned back In  her chair and regarded the young man  opposite with a close scrutiny. Tall  and dark, with clear-cut features, n  broad, white forehead, and eyes whose  steady gaze was nt times almost disconcerting, Mary Branltsome wns n  ���������girl in whom any man might feel proud  to have awakened nn Interest. That  tTom Bedson should have succeeded In  doing so was a constant source of surprise to their mutual friends. The announcement of their engagement was  greeted with uplifted eyebrows, and  unrestrained speculation as to how  long lt would last. The two were so  ���������different In disposition. Mary Brank-  aome took a serious view of life, "while  Tom Bedson was notoriously easy-going in a harmless way. His means  ���������were moderate but his tastes extravagant. He spent a prodigious amount of  money on his clothes, and prided himself on being the best-dressed man In  . BColohester.  To Mary this characteristic of her  betrothed was a source of anxiety. She  ��������� .wa* weH oft, and at her father's death  ���������would Inherit a comfortable fortune,  but she regarded everything from the  point of view of a stringently defined  principle, and a tendency to extravagance and unnecessary personal adornment, even with unlimited means at  command, was distasteful to her.  "Fourteen dollars and ninety-eight  ���������cents?" she said, regarding the piece ot  paper In her hand. "That seems reasonable enough. Do they look respectable?"  "Respectable enough," replied tho  young man with a dismal laugh. "Too  respectable. They are the regular 'Sun-  iflay best' style. It's pretty rough on  me, you know, Mary."  "It's for your own good, Tom," was  the girl's reply. "You are too extravagant, and I want you to show that you  can be man enough to curb a serious  tailing even at the expense of your  .vanity. It does not seem to me that I  ���������am asking such a wonderful sacrifice.  Eurely to wear a ready-made suit of  clothes for three months is not such a  ���������direful probation. Think of yourself as  my knight, and that suit as the armor  In which you are to win me."  "But It's such a confoundedly badly-  flttlng suit of armor," groaned Tom.  "Really. Tom, you are ridiculous.  Either agree now to do as I ask you,  or say at once that you do not think  that I am worth the effort. I will certainly never marry any man who will  not do as-much as that for my sake."  Tom hastily disclaimed any idea of a  refusal. At the same time he thought  Hejectedly. of .the numerous well-cut  ���������ults which reposed: in his wardrobes,  and In fancy saw himself, dressed. In  reach-me-downs, going wearily along  a path 'beset with the smiles and Jeers  of his friends.  "Then  that's  settled,"    said    Mary,  briskly, when Tom had made due subjection.    "You had better wear It for  the first time to-morrow at Alma Tres-  sllls's wedding."1  "Oh, I say, Mary���������" Tom protested.  "Tou will wear it,"  repeated Mary,  Bternly, "at Alma Tressilis's wedding."  "Oh,   all   right   then."    replied    the  young man, a trifle sulkily.  "I shall not be there myself," Mary  continued,-"but that need not make  any difference. Think, Tom, how happy I shall be, knowing that you care  for me enough to sacrifice your pride  for my sake."  She spoke in a caressing tone so unusual with her, that Tom was at once  eppeased, and expressed himself a3  willing to attend the wedding In his  flowered dressing-gown If she so desired lt.  When the time arrived for Tom Bed-  eon to dress for the Tressills wedding,  he unfastened the parcel which contained the ready-made suit, and, after  regarding the component parts for a  tew moments with extreme distaste,  proceeded to put them on. The fit  teemed even wor3e than when he had  Inspected himself in the store mirror.  The young man who sold them to him  bad said that it was a most gentlemanly suit. He must have been an ass. No  matter what view he took ot himself,  profile or full-face, a dozen blemishes  manifested themselves to his critical  -eye.^and^wrlnk.es^app^ared where no  ���������wrinkles ought to be. ---^=  "Oh! hang it all," he muttered. "It's  too bad of Mary; I simply can't go  looking like this."   He divested himself  of the suit, and put on the latest creation of his tailor. "Just to see the difference." The Improvement In his: appearance was so great that he began  seriously to contemplate the advisability ot putting off the evil day,  "Mary won't be there," he argued  with himself, "and nobody will be likely afterwards to "remember what  clothes I wore."  liis conscience put up a pretty good  flc-ht in b*~h"ilf of th** promise which ha  had made, but vanity came out victorious, and, having donned a big overcoat, and kicked the- offensive ready-  made clothes Into a cupboard, Tom  hurried off to the wedding.  *T have come after all, Tom."  The young man was just entering thi  cloak-room. and. starting violently,  turned to meet the smiling face of his  betrothed.  "I nm longing to ������ee you In your  new clothe**-." slit- snid. "I will wait  for you.    Don't be long."  Tom ga.--p*-*d inai tlctil.iteiy and  sought refuge in the convenient shel-  i ter of the cloak-room. This was a  complication for which he hnd not bar-  S**\Itic*d. "What a we.ik ass he had  r,een. How could he face the look ot  cold dl.'ijpproval in Mary's eyes whon  Bhe realized that he had failed to keep  faith with her? U was quite on the  cards that she might see fit to break  off the engagement. Anything rather  than that.  The room was empty, with' the exception of himself and the attendant,  and he leaned dismally against a table,  undisturbed, a.s these gloomy reflections passed through his mind, 'i he  chances of making his escape undetected, by feigning ,- sudden indisposition, were weighed, but the idea wa.s  dismissed as Impracticable. "Was there  no way out of the difTlcu'.ly?  His  gaze  wandered  absently to tho  | attendant, who was watching him wiui  Borne curiosity, and a brilliant idea  flashed upon him. The man was something of his own build, a trifle shorter,  perhaps, and he was dressed in a suit  of biack which was respectable  enough, if a little shiny in places.  "What is your name?" he asked abruptly.  "Thomas Robinson, sir," was the reply.  "Look here, Thomas," said the embarrassed lover. "I want you to exchange clolhes with me."  "I beg your pardon, sir," the other  replied, in great astonishment.  "Change clothes did you say, sir?"  "Ves, don't stand staring. It's lm-  porinnt. Look here. I'll give you live  dollars to do lt, nnd nfter the show  we'll change back again, or you can  keep my clothes, whichever you prefer. Oh, damn It nil, man, hurry up!"  So Impetuous wns Tom's urging, and  so eloquent the five dollar bill which  ho fluttered, that tho attendant, scarcely conscious of his own movement!*.  Buffered himself to be led Into a hidden  corner, where he speedily removed his  outer husk.  "Put 'em on!" cried Tom, thrusting a  bundle of his own1 clothes on the man,  and rapidly attiring himself In the  other's suit. "Quick! before anyone  comes!"  The exchange was happily effected  without Interruption, and Tom hurried  out. He caught a fleeting glimpse of  his figure in a large mirror, and noticed that fully, half an inch of pink  sock was visible above his shoe, and  that the general Impression created by  his newly-acquired garments was one  of extreme tightness. He was too  much relieved, however, at his escape  from a most embarrassing position to  be greatly concerned about his appearance.  "Good gracious, Tom!" Mary cried,  when she caught sight of him. "Whai  a horrible suit.   Why, it's not new."  "Not quite new," Tom replied. "It's  been a) little worn. I thought It better  not to get a brand-new-suit; they look  so beastly, and this is really very good  material. Cheap, too," he added. "I  thought I might as well do the thing  properly  while I was about lt."  "your enthusiasm does you great  credit, my dear boy," Mary said. "But  really, there wa3 no reason that you  should make yourself look such a  fright."  "It was for your sake, Mary," the  young man urged  reproachfully.  The girl's face softened. "Tou are a  dear, good fellow," she said: "a true  knight.    Don't think that I am unap-  preciative, but really " ���������'.'.-���������  She stopped as she noticed a stare,  and a half grin of surprise, on the  faces of a couple Who met them. She  was not altogether satisfied with the  success of her experiment, and had a  dim idea that Tom had carried out her  instructions to tills extravagant extreme in order to punish her. She dismissed; the suggestion, however, as ungenerous, and was more than usually  tender in her manner in consequence.  Although handicapped by a consciousness of his own ludicrous appearance, Tom was nevertheless happy In  the smiles of his betrothed. He even  began to give himself credit for genuine self-sacrifice, and to feel that he  was to some extent deserving of Uie  encomiums which Mury bestowed upon  him. Mr. Branksome, Mary's father,  who had been previously apprised ot  the promise which Tom had given, was  quite facetious nt his expense, but he  Was not particularly well pleased to be  identified with -..the ill-fitting suit, and  suggested an early adjournment, to  which the young people readily assented.  "You will come home with us, of  course," Mary said to Tom. and tlie  young man, who was longing for an  opportunity to get rid of liis garments,  was obliged to accept the Invitation.  "Give me. a cigarette, Tom," Mr.  Branksome said, as they drove away.  Tom felt in his pockets, and suddenly  remembered that he had left his case  in the suit which the attendant was  now wearing.  "1���������I'm afraid I haven't got It with*  me," he stammered.  "Tom without his inevitable cigarette-case!" laughed Mary. "Wonders  will never cease! Don't look so disturbed, my dear boy."  Tom's efforts to find his case had  disclosed to the keen eye of Mr. Brank-  some .the ends of a couple of cigars  protruding ..from his waistcoat pocket,  and he demanded one, delivering at the  same time a brief disquisition on the  unwisdom of carrying good cigars in  such a careless fashion. "There is one  thing about you that I can always  trust, Tom," he said, "and that Is your  tobacco. For a young man you are  not a bad judge."  Tom ~~slowl-r~proddced-"one=-of-the=cl  was, The paper waa of a florid tint,  nnd there was a fine gilt edge to lt. Not  at all the kind of paper which people  of his class were In the habit of using  In their correspondence. He dreaded  what might be revealed when the blank  space became filled.  Mary continued to scribble, occasionally stopping to bile her pencil and  think of some necessary Item in ���������">  man's expenditure. Gradually the  whole of the back of tlie letter wns  filled, and Tom gave an involuntary  gasp as the girl with a quick movement turned it over to find more space  to continue -her work. He saw a sudden start of surprise, tho red lips droop  at the corners with a look of contempt,  nnd an expression of pain and aversion  cloud the clear eyes. Then he knew  thnt he was in for it.  The girl's face was very pale as she  handed tho letter back to him. "1 am  sorry that I should have read your  privute correspondence," she said,  haughtily.  Tom took the letter from her, nnd his  jaw dropped as he read It.  "Dear Tommy Tlddleums," lt began.  What a horrible name!  "More than that," she continued,  slowly, "she showed me a card-case  which you had given her. It was lying  on the table in her room; I have  brought it with mo."  With these words the girl look something from the drawer of the writing-  table and held it out lor Tom's inspection.  It was his own clgnrette-caso, with  his initials embossed in silver.  "Our Interview was a short one,"  Mary continued, as Tom remained  speechless. "She said that sho knew  but little ot you; that you had made  her acquaintance in a very Informal  manner a fortnight ago, and that you  had represented yourself ns a Mr. Robinson." There was a tone of deep disgust in Mary's voice as she pronounced  tho supposed alias. "She also mentioned thnt last night, after you had  left me���������oh! Tom���������-Tom���������you told her  that you had been at the Tressills wedding. I*���������I did not think It necessary to  mention that we had been engaged,  and I will ask you not to refer to It  when you see her again."  The young man's head was a chaos  ������������������_,,, ���������.    . i of conflicting emotions.    "That clgnr-  "Dear Tommy  Tiddleums-Meet  me    ctte.caSe-" he began,  In    a    choking  -morrow   in   tho     shiha    ������������������nlnnn.   mul     vnlpi*  to-morrow  In   the    same    place,   and  please don't have a skate on this time.  "Your own,  "MOLLIE MULHERN."  "Well?" said the girl, after a few  seconds' silence, which Tom had employed In staring at the fatal letter,  and wondering in a dazed, hopeless  way how he was going to get out of  It. "Well, Mr. Bedson���������have you nothing to say?"  "Look here, Mary!" he replied ap-  peallngly; "this confounded letter Isn't  mine. I don't know how It got hereupon my soul, I don't. I don't know  any Mollle Mulhern; never heard of her  in my life.".  "You can hardly expect me to believe  that," said the girl  coldly.  "But it's true!" cried the young man.  "This Is a second-hand suit, and I suppose the ass that owned lt didn't know  any better than to leave his love-letters in the pockets when he sold it."  "Give me the letter." Mary took It  and scrutinized lt again. "When did  you buy the clothes?"  "The day before yesterday!" Tom  cried, seeing a way out of the trouble.  "It's all very simple.   The Idiot "  "This letter is dated yesterday."  Tom felt very much as if someone  had thrown a pail of cold water over  him. Thore was' evidently nothing for  It but to make a clean breast ot th������  whole deception.  "Look here, Mary," he began.  "Miss Branksome, now, if you please;  and I have no desire to hear anything  about It. Your love affairs do not Interest me. No, Mr. Bedson, I will not  hear a word. I will see this girl���������th*~  address is on the letter���������and thoroughly satisfy myself of the truth. Now  go at once! Go���������or I will ring for a  servant!"  Her manner was so commanding, and  Tom's head Was in such a whirl, that  he bilntlly obeyed her, and rushed home  In a state of mind bordering upon lun  acy.  That evening and the following  morning Tom' spent in a state of utte:  despair. Several times he seized papei  and pen with n view to writing a'full  explanation. Better confess himself a  liar than have that other horrible Imputation laid upon hiin. B"ut he forbore. ."She is going to see the girl," ho  thought, "and then she will learn the  truth for herself."  The hours dragged wearily, but at  last the monotony was broken by the  entrance of his landlady, who handed  him a letter. There was no mistaking  that firm, almost masculine hand, and  he tore it hurriedly open. It contained  only one line.  "I have learned the truth.   Come at  once."  "Thank God!" cried the"young man,  greatly relieved at the thought that he.I  had been spared the necessity of making a most embarrassing explanation.  "And how I will go up and abase myself. I will throw dust on my head and  grovel at her feet. She cannot refuse  me forgiveness. After all," he added,  with the cheerful optimism of a rather  . shallow nature, "I was driven into it,  '��������� and she can't be'p^seelng that."  When  Tom  rang    the  bell  at    the  gars, ot; which he had been previously  unaware, and handed tt to Mr. Branksome. That gentleman regarded it dubiously for a few moments, and then  lit it. He took a couple of puffs, which  filled the carriage with a most unsavory odor, and then, letting down the  window, threw the offending weed into  the roadway..  "Good heavens, Tom!" he cried, "how  much did you pay for that filth?"  "Five cents," Tom replied, well knowing, with that awful scent In his nostrils, that prevarication was out of the  question. "I am trying," he added,  glancing tenderly at Mary, "to cut  down my extravagant habits."  He was rewarded by a tender pressure ot the hand. Mr. Branksome only  grunted and relapsed into a disgusted  silence.  "You don't know how happy you  have made me, Tom," Mary said an  they sat alone In the drawing-room,  Mr. Branksome having retired to the  library to smoke the taste of Tom'::  cigar out ot his mouth. "Really, you  will get to be quite a thrifty person."  "I seem to be getting on that way,"  was Tom's disingenuous reply.  "I should think," continued the girl,  "that you could live quite easily on six  or seven hundred dollars a year."  Tom both looked and expressed his  doubts.  "Oh, but I'm sure you could," Mary  cried eagerly. "Let us make out a list  of your expenses. Give me a piece of  paper, quick!"  Tom mechanically put his hand Into  the breast-pocket of his coat, and produced' a paper, which Alary snatched  from him.  "This will do well enough," she said,  nnd immediately set to work to cover  It with items, nnd their corresponding  amounts.  Tom watched her with a growing uneasiness. He did not like the look of  that letter���������for a letter It undoubtedly  Branksomes' front door it was with  the look and sensation of a man who Is  "pracing himself for a painful interview  with his dentist. He even fancied that  the face of the servant who opened the  door wore a look of commiseration as  he said: "Miss Branksome will see you  in the library, sir."  "This is going to be a dashed unpleasant half-hour," he said to himself as he .was ushered in.  The girl waa standing by the wrltlng-  J;aJbXe_when^_he_.entered, arid Tom was  chilled by "h^r~TeleliUe;ss~~^expresirionr  She motioned him silently to a seat  and, dropping into a chair, leaned her  elbow on the table, and regarded him  for a full minute with a sombre but  penetrating gaze. Tom's attitude and  countenance evidenced the most abject  penitence, as he waited for the storm  to break.  "I have learned the whole truth,"  Mary said at last.  "I am glad of it," was Tom's eager  reply. "You don't know what a burden  It has been. Will you���������can you���������forgive  me my little deceit?"  "Forgive you your little deceit?" The  girl regarded the penitent with unbounded astonishment. "Your little de-  celt! Are you mad? Do you not understand that I have seen this Miss  Mulhern?"  "Well," said Tom, "after all, there  was not so much harm in lt. Most  girls would look on it a3 a sort of  joke."  "A joke!" Mary cried. "A Joke!'that  I should have consented to marry you"  ���������she gave a little shiver of aversion���������  "and that you should afterwards ha v.*  engaged yourself to another girl���������to  this Miss Mulhern!"  ';.  "What?" Tom almost shouted, In his  indignation.    "En go gee]  to .    Come,  Mary, you must be crazy. I never saw  tha woman In my life."  "Oh, Tom���������Tom���������" Mary cried, In  deep distress. "Why will you persist  in lying to me? Why have you humiliated me?"  Tom's Indignation was getting the  better of his penitence.  "I tell you," he said, "that I know  nothing of the woman. What internal',  mischief-maker has been telling you  that I arn engaged to her?"  "She told me so herself."  This was such a. staggerer that Tom  gaped in bewilderment.  "She's a " he was beginning, when  Mary raised her hand.  "Why deceive mc* more?" the girl  said, almost appenllngly. "You remember how troubled you looked when  father asked you for a cigarette yester-.  day? The reason is apparent, enough  now. You had better go now, Mr. Bed-  son���������go, and make your peace with  Miss Mulhern. But oh! Tom"���������and  there was a pathetic little catch In the  cold voice���������"I do not think that she Is  a nice girl."  Then Tom broke out. In an almost  incoherent torrent of words he told the  story of his temptation and his fall  from the paths of truthfulness. He  bestowed many hearty maledictions on  himself and Mr. Robinson, and incidentally on Miss Mulhern, and wound  up with a passionate appeal for forgiveness.  Mary watched him throughout his  recital with an unwavering gaze, and  without the slightest change In her position.  "I do not believe a word of It." *���������"���������  The young man was leaning forward,  his form rigid, and his eyes bulging  with the Intensity of his feelings, but  when he heard those words, the tension suddenly relaxed and he sank  back in his chair.  "You do not believe me?" he cried,  as If doubting his own ears.  "Not a word. Your story is nn absurd fabrication from beginning to end.  Why do you add to your sin by further  deception?"  Tom was about to enter a violent protest, against her scepticism, when a  knock came at the door' and a servant  entered.  "There's a young man downstairs,  miss," ho said, "as says he wants to see  you very particular."  "I can't see him now," Mary replied.  "He said It was very particular Indeed, miss. He says his name's Robinson."  Tom sprang to his feet. "Show him  up at once, James," he said. "Thank  God! it's the man himself!"  Both Mary and the servant eyed the  sxoited young man with some surprise,  and the latter looked to his young mistress for instructions.  "I will see him at once," the girl said  -shortly.  While waiting for Mr. Robinson to  make his appearance, Mary stole a. covert glance at Tom, and.noticed that he  had now assumed an air of conscious  rectitude; the look of one who has been  grossly maligned but is about to have  his innocence proved before the world.  She began to experience an uneasy  sense of having possibly been too hard  on her lover, and a dim hope that she  had been mistaken.  When Mr. Robinson made his appearance It was evident that he was ill  at ease. He wore a suit of clothes of  superfine material and workmanship,  but a full size too big for him, and he  stood fumbling with his hat.  "Speak up, man," said Tom, encouragingly.  "I called, miss," began the stranger,  "about a matter as is rather important  to me. You was to see a Miss Mulhern  this morning?"  Mary inclined her head.  "An" you took away a cigarette-case  as you found there?"  "It Is here." Mary picked up the Incriminating article, and began absently to trace the outlines of the silver  Initials with her fore-finger.  "Well, miss; what I want to say Is  this: The young woman told you as I  had given it to her. I didn't do nothing ot the sort. She hooked it outer my  pocket last night, just for a joke like,  an' when you seen it this morning she  stuck to it that I had given it to her.  Js^Mosn^mij^t^B^e.^n^ipn'tyrant  to git into no trouble over~It77sO~Tt=  thought as I'd better call an' explain  before you done anything about It."  "How did lt come Into your possession?" Mary enquired.  Mr. Robinson hesitated and looked at  Tom, who had now assumed a magisterial air.  ���������'Make a clean breast of It, Thomas,"  he said. "The young lady Is anxious  to know."  Thus urged, Mr. Robinson in a few  words described the scene in the cloakroom, dwelling strongly on the suddenness of the demand made upon hlni,  and the temptation offered by the sight  of the five-dollar bill.  "Thank you," Mary said, when the  narrative was concluded. "I do not  see that you have anything to be  ashamed of." She laid an unmistakable emphasis on the pronoun, and Tom  looked penitent againl  Mr. Robinson turned to go. "I think  that is all, miss."        ,  "One moment,". Mary said. "Will  you kindly give this, o^ a present from  me, to Miss Mulhern. I think sii*-;  might like to have It." She laid the  cigarette-case, with Which ahe had  been playing, In'ths young roan's hand.  "And here is something for yourself,"  Torn cried, laying a ten-dollar bill on  the top of the case.' "And for heaven's  sake, man, get. yourself some decent  cigars!"  "Thank you, miss; thank you, air,"  said Mr. Robinson, greatly mystified by  this sudden outburst of generosity.  "There Is a letter which Mr. Bedson  found In the pocket of your coat, and  whlcfti we���������we accidentally read," Mary  said. "You will find It in the clgaretto-  case."  Mr. Robinson was not a person of  keen perceptive faculties, but a dim  Idea of lhe true stato of affairs dawned  on him. However, it was none of hla  business. "Thank you, miss," he said  ftgafln, and bowed himself out, ,.  "Mary?" Tom "-had drawn nearer and  was holding out his hands.  "Well, Tom?" The ice in the girl's  voice was broken, but not altogether  thawed.  "Can you not forjrive me?"  "I am afraid that I have been a little  hard on you, Tom."  Mary's heart was beating wildly. She  had not realized till now how deeply  she had become attached lo this light-  hearted, improvident lover of hers.  "Say .that you forgive me." Ills  strong arm slipped about lier waist,  his hand gently turned her face towards his, nnd the next moment she  was sobbing on Tom's shoulder.  "If you hnd only not begun to deceive me," she said,  "I know; I know," Tom replied,  soothingly. "I nm a beast, nn ass, but  you know what somo fellow says: 'Oh!  what a tangled something or other.' I  didn't mean to do lt, but I couldn't  bear to see you look distressed, and,  upon my honor, Mary, I meant to wear  those miserable rench-me-downs next  day. I will never tell you another He  as long ns I live."  "The truth Is always tho best, Tom,  but I forgive you, and see���������hero Is the  sen!." and she kissed him bn the lips.  There was a pause.  "And that ready-made suit?" Tom  hazarded anxiously.  "I think," replied the girl, laughing  happily, "that you mlglit send lt as a  present to Mr. Robinson, to wear at  his wedding."

The'princess rs~r*feclared~>to=be-  ������rell educated and accomplished, and  expects to give a course of lectures on  social conditions In Turkey, In which  she hopes to arouse sentiment against  the existing state ot affairs. Her husband is well known as a leader of tho  Turkish Legitimist party, which Is  working for the' release ot Murad V.  from prison, where his brother,, the  reigning Sultan, placed him on the  plea ot Insanity." It Is said in political  Dircles that the accession of Murad to  thc throne would Introduce n progressive policy Into Turkish governmental  iffnirs. The princess, who is deeply  interested in these plans, is the daughter of the late Mahmoud Pacha Ben-  Ayad ot Tunis, a friend of Napoleon  III. and prominent during his reign in.  Paris society.  Mclba's Wants.  Mine. Nellie Mellia enjoys meeting  her friends in the most simple way.  She docs not hedge herself about with  guards to keep people from her. Therefore a recent Injunction of hers is of  much Interest. In Purls she met an  American millionaire who Is on the  xhudy side of fifty, nnd has great  charm ot manner and a good sense of  humor. Ho asked Mme. Melba for the  privilege of bringing to see her one'or  two Philadelphia friends, who were  ���������itaylng In Paris.   She turned' and said  very earnestly : "Now,  Mr.  C ,  do  you really want to be a good friend oi  mine ? If you do, I want you to keep  xbsolutely these rules that I havv  trlvon to my best friends. I don't want  to meet any young man. I don't want  to meet any poor man. I don't want to  meet any stupid man. I don't want  lo meet many women ; and I don't  tvant to meet any who are not lovely,  and well dressed, and brilliant."  Anecdotal.  Once, "while Daniel Webster waa  speaking in the United States Senate  on the subject of internal improvements, the Senate clock began to strike,  but instead of striking twice at 2 p.m.,  it continued without cessation more  than forty times. All eyes were turned  to the clock, and Mr. Webster remained silent until it had struck about  twenty, when ho thus appealed to the  chair: "Mr. President, the clock is out  of order!   I have the floor!"  An amusing story is told by a well-  known business man of Philadelphia,  who recently was introduced to John  D. Rockefeller. Mr. Rockefeller's favorite pastime outside of business  hours Is pltching.quolts, at which he is  said to be very clever, He was speaking of this game when someone asked  him lt he ever played golf. "Golf?"  was Mr. Rockefeller's reply. "I don't  know anything about golf. I wouldn't  even know how to hold my caddie."  Gouverneur Morris, whose life President Roosevelt wrote and published  gome years ago, and whose prefix Is  not, as so many Imagine, a title, but a  Christian naime, was the senator Who,  on being assailed by the Paris Revolutionary mob with cries of "Aristocrat!"  probably saved his life by thrusting  his wooden leg out of the carriage  window, and exclaiming, "An aristocrat? Yes, one who lost his limb In the  cause of American liberty!" This was  "cute" ot Gouverneur Morris, but not  In ihar*mony with faots. His leg was,  in truth, amputated as the result of a  carriage accident In Philadelphia.  ���������  **1  One of tihe finest instances ot absence of mind on record is that furnished by a certain Oxford don, whose  "scholarly abstraction" frequently  landed him In difficulties. Dining out  one night, he suddenly became Immersed. In thought, and for a .time sat  gazing at his plate, evidently deeply  engrossed in some mighty problem.  Now it happened that "his left-hand  neighbor, a portly dame, had a habit  of resting her "hands on the table, palm  down and fingers closed. Suddenly the  professor awoke from 'his brown study,  seized his fork, plunged lt Into the  plump .paw reposing to the left of his  plate, and, ���������beaming genially through  his glasses, remarked: "My bread, I  think!"    .  General John H. Llttlefleld, who  studied under Abraham Lincoln, says  ithalt all clients knew that, with "Old  Abe" ias their lawyer, they would win  itheflr case. If it was fair; If it was not,  that it was a waste of time to take lt  to .him. After listening some time one  day to a would-be client's statement,  with.Ills eyes on the ceiling, Lincoln  swung around in his chair, and exclaimed: "Well, you have a. pretty  good case In technical law, but a pretty  bad onei in equity and Justice. You'll  have to get some other fellow to win  this case for you. I couldn't do lt. All  the time while talking to that Jury I'd  be thinking, 'Lincoln, you're a liar,'  , and I believe I ehould forget myself  and say it out loud."  In the 'seventies, the artist, Anton  von Werner, was appointed to perpetuate the German Imperial proclamation.  He first made a sketch, to submit to  the old Emperor William. In this, the  various personages were grouped in the  same'order as during the ceremony at  ���������Versailles, William I. standing on a  raised platform, with Bismarck at his  left, on a lower step, and on his right  the Crown Prince, whom the artist had  represented with one foot on the upper  level.

Mr. James L. Ford, in the course  of an article in " Munsey's Maga-  tine," sots out to show that in  the highest institutions of femalo learning there is one study too few instead  of ten too many; and the thing that is  needed is a chair of courtship and matrimony.  "Te study tho ourriculum of a women's  loUege   is  to   become deeply  impressed  with the fact that no matter how wide  ������r deep may bo the rango of learning  placed at the disposal of  the students,  the most essential study of womankind)  las been strangely neglected.    There is >  iot a single women's college in the land  Which hns a chair of courtship and matrimony.   When I become rich ib is my in-1  tention to establish and endow one at1  tome  leading  seat   of  feminine  educa- [  Uon.   My chair of courtship nnd matrimony is not designed to teach girls how!  io attract  the male of  their species���������,  Host of them are born with a fuller com*'  prehension of that engrossing art than I  jould give them���������but rather to aid them  tb  the far  less understood  nnd   vastly  tnore important matter of selection.    I  would    also    suggest    a    post-grndunto  Course of lectures in regard to the best  icheme for retaining a husband after he  has been chosen. i  "I'shall'stipulate in ray deed of endowment that the incumbent of this  ihair of courtship and matrimony shall  be a woman of nature years, high" native  intelligence and great social experience.  t should prefer one who had herself been  gourtcd and married, and shall endeavor  to secure one who has also undergone  the experience of divorce. It shall be  ter duty to lecture three times a week  Bn the perils of modern society, and to  Illustrate her discourse, whenever pos-  Jible, by placing on the platform specimens of the different types of men that  ft. young girl may oxpoctv to encounter  when sho leaves college and begins to  take up the serious duties of life.  "The first thing that I would desire the  Incumbent of my chair of courtship and  matrimony to impress upon her undergraduate hearers is the fact that to make  a really good match in this country it "is j  necessary to wed eiUici a pauper or u I  multi-millionaire. The man who possesses  a small income, and has not sullicicnt energy to work ns if he had nono at all, is  to be avoided like the plague, aj he will  make a most unsatisfactory husband.  "It will he impossible,* of course, for  the chair of matrimony to discuss within  tlie brief limits of a college course all thc  kinds of men that should be avoided,  but it can at least sound a warning note  in regard to some of those with whom  th* young girl graduate is likely to be  brought in contact under present social  conditions. In the choosing of a multimillionaire she should seek* advice, not  from my chair, but from someone who i3  quick at figures, as it is a mere matter  of dollars; but in regard >to the others,  she should be carefully "instructed during her college course.  "There is no variety of the male of our  species better deserving of conscientious  consideration at the hands of this instructor than that which "the impulsive  and inexperienced woman delights to  brand as 'interesting.' I positively shudder when I hear a young girl express a  preference for a man because he is so 'interesting,' and I know that she is on the  .wrong road to happiness when she rejects the attentions of .-anyone on tho  ground that, although he.may be honest  and truthful and sincere, he.is 'not interesting.'  "The Interesting Actor-is a particularly  ^dangerous type of fakir, because ho not  only carries with him the glamor of his  -profession, but also has so many unoccupied evenings on his hands���������thanks to a  popular taste that does not always go  astray���������that he has better.opportunities  , 'than his fellow-players, who are busy on  the stage, to make the acquaintance oi  impressionable young women, and to con-  ���������vince them by his persistent talk about  himself and his 'art' that he is as interesting as they would like to.believe him.  'Another type who will serve to illustra te  a* discourse is the Interesting Artist who  has "never learned how to draw. He pes-  . Besses, however, a fine vocabulary of the  claptrap  of tho profession, and always  Keers at anything that is (popular. A  vorite- pose of his is that of tho neglected genius who is starving in a garret because his work is too good for ths  world to appreciate. The Interesting -Literary Man occurs in endless variety in  tie pathway of the young graduate, and  requires a special course of lectures tc  himself. To begin with, there is the In  jteresting Playwright, whe has been writing dramas for several years, and who  hopes that an artistic revolution willone  day place in control of a metropolitan  "theater some manager with a soul above  the box-oflirr and a brain capable of appreciating really good work. Tlio Inter-  eating Poet is also well worthy of the  attention of the incumbent of my choir  "~ef "courtship" and'm.i trimonyr" ~IIc~ is~at  least true to one anoient poetic tradition  In thai he wears long hair, and has always in stock a smile of singularly sweet  and sympathetic sadness, which he produces" on special occasions as children  produce their company manners. After  having listened to'the full course of lectures on the men whom they are to shun,  ���������ratli graduating class should have an opportunity to meet some really interesting  and accomplished men who can tell them  .something about poetry, art and letters."  *'Grappling in the Central Biue."  (Being "Mr. Punch's" report of thc  duel between "M. Santos-Dumont and  Comtc de la Vatilx as fixed to take place  in the vast inane.)  Paris hnd slept uneasily. AU night  long the light.! burned mysteriously in the oflices of tho leading  papers, and here and there in the darkness could be heard tho rhytlunical  "puff! pull!" of gasoline engines.  As the first streaks of dawn began to  struggle through the mists, the sound of  the engines became more noticeable, and  presently from the shadows in the North  a huge airship slid silently across tho  tremulous city. A moment later a dozen were on the wing, waiting for tho  principals to appear. As yet the scene  of the battle had not been announced,  but soon a tense wlusper hissed through  tihe chilly air:  "The Kin-el Tower."  Ah! At last it was known. The first  duel of the new regime was to take place  above the greatest engineering triumph  of the old.  By t liis time the air was dark with  dirigible balloons nnd dusky airships  moving in wide spirals through the silvery dawn. An anchored balloon shot  up on either side of the Eiffel Tower, and  everyone knew thnt they contained the  seconds ' of thc high opposingo parties,  who had in this way measured off the  distance foi" thc duellists.  Santos-Dumont was the first to appear  on the scene. There was something falcon-like in the vicious rapidity of his  movements, and as he circled about the  balloon that contained his seconds nn  occasional flirt of the tail-propellers of  his airship showed clearly that lie was in  tho best of spirits.  Your correspondent, who was hovering  just above thc scene in an aeroplane  borrowed from Mr. If. G. Wells' story  "When ���������the Sleeper- Wakes," was constantly sweeping the horizon with liis  binoculars, and was the first to descry  Comte de la Vaulx as he moved bulkily  towards his station at the other balloon.  There was need for haste, for the gendarmes were already aware of what was  taking place, and were frantically searching for telescopes sufficiently powerful  to draw the law-breakers down near  enough to be arrested.  Just at the moment when the sun  touched the horizon with gold, the seconds of Comte de la Vaulx dropped a  parachute as a signal, and the duellists  swooped at one another with a great  rattle of machinery and odor of gasoline;  but at that moment a puff of wind struck  them unawares, nnd before they had a  chance to recover they were, separated  by several meters. Santos-Dumont was  the first to adjust himself to the new  conditions, but he" courteously waited  for his enemy to pull in part of his sail  acreage and make his airship obey its  rudder.  As the wind had now become steady  from the cast, the duel was drifting rapidly towards the English Channel, leaving the seconds anchored near the Eiffel  Tower. Something had to be done quickly, and it was. "Rushing upon his enemy  like an eagle upon a swan in mid-air,  Santo-i-Dumont punctured his gas reservoir with a quick thrust of his fountain pen, provided for the occasion by a  press agent.  At tliis, De la Vaulx threw up both  wings and sank helplijpsly to the earth.'  It had been arranged by the seconds that  he who drew first gas was to-be the victor.  Was Lady Macbeth a Study of  Queen Elizabeth?  To tho "Dublin "Review" the Rev,  Vincent J. HcNabb contributes a  well - thought - out and most interesting argument as to whether or not  Shakespeare wrote "Macbeth" prompted by a desire to show a parallel to  Queen Elizabeth's treatment of Mary  Stuart, Queen of Scotland, to the theater-going audiences of James I.'s reign.  After quoting' evidence to prove that  Shakespeare was in the habit of holding the mirror up to Nature in his  plays, the writer brings forward the  friendship of the poet with the Earl, of  Southampton, an ardent friend to Mary,  who was thrown into prison by Elizabeth and released by James, as an argument to prove- that Shakespeare had  cause for a dislike of Queen Elizabeth.  And further :  "According to Malonc and other competent critics, 'Macbeth' could not have  been written earlier than 1(500, three  years after the coronation of James,  the son of Mary Queen of Scots. Evidently thc play had been recognized as  suitable to the circumstances of his  nationality and history. Thus we find  the king's visit to Oxford in 1C03 marked  by a play, or interlude, called) 'Macbeth/  performed in the king's presence."  The writer gives six points of resemblance- between -theiplay-and^hislorie'.il  events. Of these thc following are the  most telling :  "It is the only play of which Shake-  epeare lays the plot in Scotland. This  could hardly fail to please a Scottish  \ing ; and we have seen that this fitness  With circumstances had already been recognized by the University authorities  at Oxford." The play is based on the  murder of a kinsman, sovereign, and  guest. Mary Stuart was kinswoman,  queen (in tlie eyes of her adherents),  and guest of Elizabeth. The outcome of  the 'vaulting ambition' which overleaps  itself is that the sovereignty passes  from Macbeth to the son of the murdered sovereign; just as the crown of  England passed on Elizabeth's death to  James, the son of Mary. And we may  remark thas Shakespeare has made  many additions to the source of the  play, Ilolinslicd's Chronicle. The whole  character of Lady Macbeth is the poet's  own creation."  As  the    writer    very  truly remarks,  ,r.r*in      n fn      O+I'/ITI 1������      ft f Ml 1 111 A M f a      ltl      -Tl IT fl ���������*���������*���������      f\i     !  Ctroager Than Death.  There is in Gloucester, Massachusetts  ��������� perha;* it should be said there  ivas not long ago ��������� a captain of a  Sshiug-smack who was the hero of as  oravo a story as was ever told; and  ���������.here is in Philadelphia the office of a  it-eirmsliip company \vhere the other side  of the story is well known.  An ocean liner crossing the Banks in  icas that swept the decks sighted a fishing-vessel with the flag flying union  iown���������everywhere the recognized signal  *>f distress. The captain looked at the  rcssel through his telescope, and' saw no  ligns of life. It was freezing cold, and  the waves rolled m gray mountains  which threatened to crack a boat into  iplinters before she was fairly lowered.  The captain thought a while, and looked  out ou the sea and figured his chances  ������f getting to the distressed fisherman.  He called his crew, rang the engineer's  Oell, aud made ready to lower a boat.  Tho crew listened to what he said about  the danger, but declared themselves ready  to try it. Then the captain looked again  through fiiis telescope. He rubbed his  eyes in astonishment. The ling on the  fisherman, which, a little before, had  been flying union down, was now flying  from the masthead, union up.  Here was a strange thing. There were  otill no signs of life on board the distant  vessel. The captain thought hard, and  spoke again to the crew. They were still  for going.  So they put off in a boat, the first officer and the second mate and men at the  oars. The liner meanwhile had gone off  her course nearer the smack.  When the boat drew near the strange  fishing-schooner, the chances of boarding  her seemed slight. The sea pitched the  ship's boat high on a shaking peak of  water, then slammed her heavily into a  chasm between two tottering walls.  In justice to his men the officer in  charge of the boat proposed that thev  put back. On the deep hulk that lurched  a hundred yards from them-was nothing  to indicate that a living man was there  to be saved or left to his fate. But the  crew and the mate urged that they  should try to make fast and swing on  board. If that flag had been changed, a  livo man's hand had changed it.  So they pulled nearer, and, keeping  free of the dark hull that tossed and  rolled and threatened to smash theni,  they flung a rope over the rail, and one  by one clambered on board.  They found the captain and the crew  lashed to the masts, frozen unconscious,  took them off, and got them safe back  to the steamer. Some of the men were  dead, but the captain and several ofi the  crew came to life.  Whon the captain of the fisherman was  able to speak, they asked hiin about the  flag which had been first upside down,  then righted. This was his simple explanation:  He had reversed the flag to summon  help. Then when he felt himself going  and saw how mad was the sea, he  thought that if any came to save hfca,  they would run too great a risk, bo with  his last ounce of strength he had righted  the flag again to prevent good seamen  from losiug their lives in a vain effort to  save his.

There are plenty of men in Giles County, and better-looking and better-mannered men than any I've seen here.  How many children have you?" she  asked, changing1 the subject abruptly.  "Four, ma'am, all boys���������oldest thirteen and youngest five," Mr. Pooly explained. "They're gittin' purty wild,  too���������jest like young colts that been  runnln' on the range, with nobody  much to look after 'em.

Mr. Robert Barr, of the "Idler,"  tells a good story of a tramp  from Hastings to. Winchelsea in  company with a friend. When the twain  arrived at their destination - they sought  a hotel for refreshment.' What took  place there is described by the novelist  ns follows : "In the coffee room they  had a visitors' book, which was full of  poetical efforts and sketches. "Some of  the pictures were very clever; some  of the poetry was very bad. However,  the poetry was unanimous in one respect���������the writers had all been very  much pleased with the hotel and its fare.  It appeared 'suspicious to me that in  almost every leaf a jiart of the page had  been cut out. I imagine that when  anybody wrote anything that didn't suit  the views of the proprietor, that gentleman used the closure in the shape of a  pair of scissors. My own sentiments,  which are probably cut out by this time,  were given in a few lines, which, I may  ���������daim without being conceited, were the  ���������ivorst in the book, always cxeepting  those written by my friend. Here they  are i  " 'It seems to me that those who write  The truth about the place and prices,  Have what they say cut out of sight,  So flatter���������that's whit my advice is.  '"We had a plain and simple tea,  Very nice, but not extensive ;  The price they charged us seemed to be,  All  things considered,  darned  expensive.'  "I signed this with the plain and noncommittal letter B., after which my  friend.-wrote.: .   " 'With, Mr. B. I don't agree,  To join his grumbling 1 decline ;  I never had a cheaper tea,  But then, you see, he paid for mine.'"  one of 'em, jest as fast as we can.'  "Yes, and I'll bet a horse, Ted Sanders, you'll be over 'fore breakfast tomorrow spyln*. round to see what thls'n  looks like," said the big man, with a  sparkle In his small eyes. "But doggone my times! Teh better stay away.  I swear I'll git an Injunction on you  fellers, and not let yeh come on the  place."  The whistle of the approaching engine Interrupted this colloquy, and the  men scattered in a line along the platform watching with curious faces.' Mr.  Pooly stood a little in the rear, inwardly chuckling at a seasonable joke which  he felt was about to be perpetrateJ on  the boys. As the train came to a stand,  puffing and hissing, a single person  descended and stood confronting the  staring spectators. Looks of anger,  disgust, pain and resentment passed  from rain to man, looks that said plainly and despairingly, "Is that her? Do  you think thet's her?   Good Gawd!"  The person who was being thus unfavorably received stood for some time  looking from one observer to another;  then her face reddened angrily.  "Well, what are you staring at?"  She fired the question point-blank into  their faces and put them quickly to  rout. "Don't you like my looks?

They moved away from her In alarm  and huddled helplessly on one corner  of the platform, swearing deep oath's  of vengeance against Pooly, and keeping their eyes fixed in a sort of fascination on the.stranger.  "Where's that man Fooly, or Pooly,  or" whatever his name is?" asked the  apparition, approaching the group of  men.  Pooly was at that moment behind the  depot jumping up and down and hugging himself in an ecstasy of joy. But  at mention of his name he came forward soberly enough to greet the new-  comer.-  "Good-mornln', ma'am," he said, with  hearty politeness.    "I'm Pooly, and I  reckon you're Miss���������Miss "  ~  "Miss Virginia Quigley, from Tennessee, Giles County/Pulaski Postoffice."  "Glad to see yeh, Miss Qulgley.   Fine  day."- "*  1 "I hadn't noticed anything remarkable" about the day," she answered  curtly. "Here's my check. Tou better  get my trunk and let us be going.  "Where do you live?'.*  "Tes'm, ten mile out, ma'am, south,"  responded Pooly. "Wagln's round behind there. Jest climb in, and I'll have  the trunk out in a hurry."  In the privacy of the baggage-room  Mr. Pooly Indulged himself with another brief period of Jubilation, side  shaking and thigh slapping. Then,  pulling the trunk out, he heaved It Into the wagon.  ��������� "Here we are, ma'am. Everything  ready? All right, off we go." And  cracking, the whip, lie set.the team of  mules going at a gallop.  As they drove past the saloon many  faces peered at them, muttering soundless imprecations, and many fists were  raised in Indignation. Pooly succeeded  In giving the men In return a * sly,  triumphant wink on the side of hia  -face that was away from his formidable companion.  "Who were those Ill-mannered fellows?" she asked.  "Who? Them at the depot? Oh, I  don't know; some| of the boys, I "reckon. They're always there, 'specially if  they think a woman's comin'."  "They didn't seem to be highly  pleased," she said, smiling grimly.  "Why, mebbo not," answered P.ooly,  with bluff frankness. "No, I guess yeh  did strike 'em purty hard." He laughed  loudly at the recollection. "Lord! Lord!  but-"I- reckon-yeh- did-hlt--'em���������hard-  enough!"  She turned to 'him a face fiery with  anger, "I wasn't aware, sir, that there  was anything so extraordinary about  my looks," she said.  "No'ni, oh, no'm!" Mr. Pooly hastened to explain. "Nothln" so very extraordinary, only, yeh see, they wuz  lookin' fer somp'n different. I told 'em  I had another governess comin' to-day.  Tou're the fourth one inside of a year.  The others didn't turn out well."  "Couldn't give satisfaction?"  "That wuz jest the trouble���������they give  too much satisfaction. Teh see, they's  about a hundred men In .the county,  and only half of 'em married, and no  women loose, so whenever one comes  the boys Jest flock after her. An' these  others that I brought out from East  wuz young and peart and good-looking,  an' the boys wouldn't give 'em no  peace. They married, every one of 'em,  'fore they'd been here a month."  "Huh!" ejaculated Miss Qulgley in  extreme disgust.  "Tes'm, that's what I said," continued Pooly. "I got mighty tired of  lt, an' when the third one married, I  wrote East an' told 'em to .send on  another, but doggone it all, not to be  sending one that 'ud up an' marry on  me inside of a month, but to find one  that wuz so blamed ugly no self-re-  spectln' white man could stand to look  at her."  "And they sent me!" said Miss Qulgley, with spiteful emphasis on the pronoun.  "Effgznctlj"! They sent you," said  Pooly, looking at her wilh the admiration that a man. must always bestow  on a perfect typo. "An' I guess you'll  do. I don't hardly think you'll be tr.k-  in' up with any of the boys right  away."  "Huh! I guess not!" responded Minn  Quigley In contempt.   "If I had wanted  sprang down without waiting to be ni<-  rl.ted. The four yiiuiu*- Poolys dushe !  out with wild whoops to greet her, but  'stopped short, shocked Into speechless  silence and stood with mouths agape  as they saw what manner of woman  she was. The youngest, out of sheer  childish sympathy, set up a frantic  wailing and ran back Into the house.  Mr. Pooly laughed immoderately at the  effect produced by the prospective governess, and called loudly to the weeping youngster:  "Here; Ben, what's the matter with  yeh? Teh ain't goin' to be a baby, air  yeh? Come along and see the lady:  she won't bite yeh."  The aggrieved Bennle came sullenly,  rubbing his fists deep into his eyes. The  woman stooped down and in a voire  altogether different from the one she  had hurled at the impertinent gazers  at the station, soothed the child till his  resentment was so far modified that  he allowed her to lead him Into the  house. The other boys followed at a  safe distance, whispering to each other: "I say, Jim, did yeh see her nose?  Did yeh see her nose!" "An' her spectacles. Bob? I bet yeh don't pull her  hair and play tricks on her like yeh  did the other one."  It became evident before many houi ������������������  that the new governess, whateve-  might be her superficial defects, had  an effective way about her. She had  had no previous experience of the domestic economy of a ranch house; but  with a few quick, comprehensive  glances she took in the whole situation.  Her position was school mistress to the  four boys, but, she took a large view  of her function's. Mrs. Reed, the widowed sister of Mr." Pooly, who was the  nominal head of the household, was a  thin, colorless creature, who let the  boys and the Mexican servants do  about as they pleased. She was quite  willing to havo some stronger will assume the responsibility of management.' So the new governess, with the  approval of everybody whose approval  was necessary, set to work to Institute  a domestic revolution In the household  of Pooly.  Before night she came to' the inevitable issue with the juvenile Poolys.  She took Jim first, he being the largest. The conflict for a few minutes was  fierce and noisy; but when lt^was finished the wild colt was broken; she had  only to look at him after that tot have  quick and cheerful obedience. The senior Pooly from a safe distance watched  the conflict, with various dramatic  gesticulations and Inward guffaws'expressive of satisfaction.  The following day several of the men  who had witnessed the arrival of Miss  Qulgley rode out to the ranch. Pooly*  went out to the gate to meet them with  boisterous good will.  "Hello, boys!" Git down an' come In,"  he said, then added In a stage whisper,  with expressive grimaces: "She's in  there, right in there! Walk right In an'  see her. She noticed yeh yesterday, an'  has been wishln' she might see yeh  again."  "Say, Cal, we want a-know what yeh  got agin us," said Ted Sanders in a  tired, aggrieved voice. "We ain't never done nothin' to yeh, have we? We  ain't killed yer sheep, or run off yer  cattle, an' what in thunder yeh want  aT-treat us like this fer. Why, man"���������  lie leaned from his horse and spoke In  regretful tones���������"the creek down  there's already dryln' up; the' won't be  a foot o' water In the county Inside of  a week, and the grass is all dyln'.  What yeh want to do us like this fer?  We wouldn't mind her bein' old nnd  ugly and havln' a voice like a sawmill,  but that nose! that nose!"  Pooly leaned on thc gate In a convulsion of laughter. "Oh, yes, her  nose! her nose! Git down, boys, an'  walk-rlght-In,"-heurged.���������"She's-wait-  in' fer yeh. I say It's dog mean of  yeh to como an' take every one I get,  but I reckon I'll have to stand It fer  tho good o' tho community. Which  one'll go first? Tou, Ted, you're tho  smoothest-tonguod."  The melancholy Mr. Sunders looked  at Pooly without a smile. "Don't,  pardner, don't," he said, "you hurt our  fceUu's. Don't make us yer enemies  fer life. Box her up an' ship her away  to-night; we'll pay the expenses."  At this moment the subject of their  lamentations appeared at the door and  stood frowning nt the six cavaliers.  They looked at each other in alarm,  then, taking up their bridle retois, rode  away. Pooly followed them, calling  loudly:  "Say, boys, don't rush off like this in  the heat of the day. Stay an' take  dinner. Can't? Well, come over often,  be glad to see yeh any lime."  The  men  called   back  to  him   with  sundry  threatening motions,  "Sack  lt '���������  up,  Cal,"    "Stave  it off."    "Try  cold  buttermilk,"  and  "Cornbrcad an'  molasses makes a good poultice."  Before the rule of Miss Virginia  Qulgley was a month old order and  thrift had been Introduced into the  Pooly household. Every room and tha  verandas and yards were tidy. The  meals were served on time by servants  who moved deftly and with thc precision of clockwork. The children went  to their lessons without murmuring, j intended to  and  no longer,  whon they were free, j saj(i   nothln'  tho sheep. "An' they say 'at they're  comin' up here an' set the barns on  Are an' scare us and run off, 'cause I  heard 'em," explained the boy, In great  excitement.  Miss Quigley, with the masterly decision of a general, took things immediately In hand. She put the children  wilh Mrs. Reed and the two Mexican  women Into one room and told them  to stay there. Then she took her stand  at the door to await developments.  Pretty soon the four Mexicans rode  up, yelling furiously. They dismounted  and came toward the house, evidently  bent on mischief. Pedro had a Winchester and began shooting at the  chickens. Fortunately, he was half  drunk, so .that most of his shots went  wild; but his conduct set Miss Qulgley  I  &  housekeeper, an' one 'at will be permanent, an' the' won't be no danger  o* some other feller comin* along an'  takln' her away jest when she Is gittin' useful. Understand? Hey? How  does it strike yeh?"  "But I'm -so ugly, you know, that no*  self-respecting while man can stand to  look nt me!" declared the lady, her  eyes flashing again.  "I know���������I know *bout that," responded Pooly, turning red to the edges  of his shaggy beard. "An* I ain't say-  In' yeh would take any prizes In a  beauty contest. But looks ain't everything by a long sight. An' I ain't such  a handsome looker myself. So come  now, no hard feelln's; what d'ye say?  wild with anger.   She strode out boldly ] 1 got to go to  town  this mornln*, an'  If yeh say so, 1*11 jest put on my coat,  an' while we're down there we'll git  hitched.   What d'ye say?"  Miss Quigley said nothing, but her silence must have been quite satisfactory, for Mr. Pooly blustered noisily  out of the loom, stopping at the door  and confronted the drunken greasers.  "Here, you hombres, what do you  mean? What do you mean, I say!" she  stormed. "I'll teach you to come round  here ������ scaring women and children.  Gl'me that gun."  The Mexicans huddled together like  frightened sheep, not knowing what to ! to call hack to her:  do.   Pedro had raised the gun, pointing j      "All right, rush along now an* primp  it at the Irate woman. ! yehself  up  a little,  an'  I'll have the  "Put down that gun!" she cried, in j buggy at the front catc rn half nn  feminine fury.

Then,    menacing  them with  the  gun,  she scolded and  rebuked and threatened until they were  thoroughly  cowed.      They understood  little of what she said, but the vigor of  her  speech gave it all  the rower of  the  most  virile   masculine   profanity.  They tried to slip away to their horses  ana escape, but she stood before them  with the gun at ready, and her finger  on the trigger.  "No, you don't get away," she said.  "Do you see that bench yonder?"   She  pointed   to   the  front   veranda  where  was a long wooden bench. "Go in there  and sit down, every one of you   Sabe?  I say go and sit down on that bench!'*  She put the end of the gun against  Pedro and gave him a push toward the  house.   Meekly as lambs they went In  and sat down as she commanded.  "Jlmmle," she called then to the boy  inside,  "saddle your horse and-go for  your pa.   Hurry, now, and tell him to  bring the sheriff.   Jail is the place for  such outlaws as these." And while the  boy went as,directed   she sat down tc  guard her prisoners..  Mr. Pooly told afterward with a great  relish the story of Miss Quigley's victory.    "Teh see, when we got there,"  he said, "there wuz them four greasers  slttln'   humble  as yeh please  on  the  front porch, and -her settin' in a cheer  In front of 'em with  the gun In her  hands guardln' .'em.   Her nose wuz red  and her eyes still poppln'.   An* dog my  cats   If  everyone  o'   them    Mexicans  wasn't lollln' back with their mouths,  open like they wuz tired to death, fer  she'd -been lashln' 'em with that long  tongue o' hers fer three mortal hours,  so  they wuz damned glad to see the  sheriff come, an' went along same as  If they wuz goin' to feed."  This adventure served to confirm Mr.  Pooly In a determination that had been  slowly forcing ituelf on him for some  time.    The following day,  when Miss  Quigley had finished with the four  small Poolys and sent them scampering away to play, the lord of the manor, coatless, and booted and spurred,  lumbered Into the room set apart for  school purposes.  "Good-mornln'," he said in a robust  voice, for once thinking to take oil his  hat. "How's the schoolma'am after the  fracas? Feelln' peart and healthy, Is  she?"  ���������Miss Quigley's unprepossessing features relaxed to a half smile. Indicative  of serenity and confidence. Mr. Pooly  continued, fingering his hat nervously:  "I want to speak to you on a matter.  I've about decided that I won't need  a governess any longer." He planted  himself aggressively in front of her  with legs a-sprawl and looked at her  with  twinkling eyes.

OLITICAL assassinations were  as frequent in the fifteenth  and sixteenth centuries as in  the nineteenth, only the rank  of the assassins was different.  Philip II. ordered the assassination of  the Prince of Orange and of Queen  Elizabeth, and advised the Queen-  mother of France to have Coligny and  tho Queen of Navarre "removed."  Elizabeth escaped through her great  popularity and the vigilance of "Wal-  singha.m. Henri HI. ordered the assassination of the Duke of Guise. Tha  Lords of the League ordered in turn  that of Henri, and 'one may surmise  that the governments of Spain and  Austria were agreed as to the expediency of murdering Henri IV. Th*  frivolousness of the Diike of Buckingham did not save him from the dagger"  of a political assassin. The sex of  Mary Stuart did not prevent herbeln*f  the accomplice of Bothwell in the murder of Darnley. Ruthven and other  noblemen murdered Mary's favorite,  Rizzlo, in her presence. Cromwell lived  In constant fear of being stabbed or  shot. Recently published documents  prove that the poisoner was a favorite  diplomatic and political instrument of  the Venetian Council of Ten. "To go  back to the time when the bloom of  Italian art was finest, the Borgia wero  always assassinating or employing assassins. Going back still further, assassination was a common political expedient in Rome, both as a rrpublii  and as an empire.  The violent passions that used to  move rulers In times past and the dl-  reotness of their methods have descended, like their cast-off clothes, to  a much lower social stratum. Orders  to take away the lives of monarchs no  longer proceed from the Escurlal, or  the Tullerles, or the Council Chamber '  of Venice, but from dens where Anarchists meet. The monarchs, on tho  whole, have been less badly used in our  time than the Presidents of North and  South American republics.

"Somp'n like that, ma'am," he  replied. "An' I can't say 'at the boys  have been quite so anxious as before.  No, somehow they haven't been round  much lately. But 'tain't goin' to be so  any longer.

"So you think 1 had better go before  the harm's done," said Miss Qulgley,  recovering her composure. "Very well,  I can be ready in half an hour."  . "Hold on now, don't git huffy," admonished Mr. Pooly, in tones that were  I Grandchildren at Edward VII.'s Coro**'  j nation.  Tt has not been a common thing In  English  history  for  the  sovereign  at  the time of coronation  to have royifl  children gracing the ceremony; and as  for   grandchildren   being   present,   no  j king or queen of England had any at  the outset of a reign.   Royal juveniles  have been  conspicuously absent from  these grand ceremonies, and It will be  a  unique   feature  of  King   Edward's  coronation that some of his grandcliil-  . dren will be old enough to witness and  j understand the scene.   It was a matter  ! of regret that the dislikei felt by Kins  i William IV. for the Duchess ot Kent  made a playhouse of every room. The  tired Mrs. Reed rejoiced with many  satisfied sighs, and Mr. Pooly thought  what he thought, ami said nothing.  Then occurred nn affair which might  well have changed the even course of  events.  Mr. Pooly had for some time suspected that some of liis herders were  stealing his sheep, nnd one evening he  discharged four of them.

I  Are at it Hammer and Tongs  Regarding the Price of Lumber���������Is the Notice Requiring*  Survey of Limits Legal?  Over the si-mature of lion. W. C.  Wells, the following notice appears in  the current Gazette:*  "Notice is hereby given, pursuant In  the provisions of Section .IO of the  1.anil Ail, I bat iu litliiie no special  licences lo cut timber on Crown lnnds  will be granted or renewed until after  the applicants have bad lhe limit*,  surveyeii hy a duly i|tialilied Provincial  Laud Surveyor to ibe satisfaction of  the 1/iiids and Works Department."  Refwicine to lhe section mentioned  cli.ils the fact lliut regulation.*, regarding timbei" licences are to be made by  Ibe Lieiiti'ii.-uit Governor in Council.  There is nothing in the notice loshiiw  that such u regulation was approved  as rei'tiired by tbe Act, and it appears  therefore the notice in tpicslnin is  ipiite beyond the powers ol. the Chief  Commissioner. If, however, there has  been an Order passed, the notice of  same should have been given by the  Clerk of;l he Council...  Il would be interesting to discover  whether this notice is merely a bail  break by reason of its publication by a  wrong authority, tir if il, is a nullity,  no Order in Council approving it  having been passed. It is up to Mr.  Wells io explain.  Opinion as lo thu regulation itself is  somewhat, divided, coast papers saying  it is "viewed with consternation*" hy  lumbermen there. .The IIehaLii bad  a talk with Theodore Ludgate on tlie  subject ami that gentleman staled he  considered thu move a necessary one.  fn his opinion when a company invested large -stuns in mills, depended for  their operation on such licence*,', it  was very advisable to have the limits  surveyed. In fact, it was bis inleiition,  regulation or nol, to have all limits  secured bv liim plolteii out by a sui-  veyor. He also pointed out tliat a  batik would not make advances onilie  security of uncut limber unless the  boundaries of the claims were ni-cur-  alely defined.  Mr. 0. F. Liniimark was also seen on  the iiiiittdi" and expressed himself in  somewhat similar terms.  Tbo exchange of opinions between  buyers and sellers as to the present  price of lumber goes merrily on, Mr.  McNicoll, general manager of the C.  I?. R., the other day retracted liis  previous statement that as soon as  rates were reduced lhe pi ice of lumber  was raised. He admitted, according  to u despatch. Unit be wis "mistaken  and uilsiiil'orined."  Tbe fact remains, however, that tbe  price of-' lumber lia-** risen wit h great  rapidity. The inilluieu i-tale thai* tliey  are paying much more for.'their help  than formerly and that the wages of  ni.e'if iu the logging camps have risen  equally with thc-pi iie uf lumber. It is  known'.'..that,'in some rase.-* al least.  such is "the case, but. lhe gist of ihe  mallei' is. are the iiiilliuen and lumber  dealers reaping an extorlicinate profit '?  Humors.-, of royal'.' commissions'.'"ami  judicial"'' enquiries are heard Irom all  parts'of Manitoba and the Ninth West  unci it is very probable 'steps on this  line may 'shortly betaken, linn.Thus.  Greenway, leader of the Manitoba  opposition said in tin interview on  .Saturday last that the Western Retail  Lumbermen's Association was a combine,'aud therefore illegal. To ttse his  own'words',' "They make no bonus of  the facs that they are a combination in  restraint of trade and therefore oprr-  aling in defiance of the l.iw." lie also  recommended that the Dominion  Government be urged to put dr**������sed  lutnliei-on the free list. ''I feel very  strongly nn this matter," said Mr.  Green way tn conclusion, "and when 1  am east I shall make it my business to  make stiong representations to the  Dominion government asking them in  exercise lo the fall every power that  they have in order that the people of  the west may be relieved '.from this  odious and expensive imposition. Tbe  existing conditions are intolerable,  and must not continue.*'  It must net be lot-gotten, however,  that for many years practically all the  mills of the Province were operated  under very adverseciicuinsiance;, and  in many instances at a loss.

The HiiK.vr.n bad an interesting  talk with him regaiding the prospects  of Fish Creek camp, which fully confirmed other advices regarding tbe  richness of this coining disttict. Tbe  Western Star group is situated on the  southerly side of Pool Creek, about 7  miles from Camborne, and is at pies-  ent operated by the Ellivood Tinwork-  ersGold Mining Company. Work was  commenced late last summer and the  development so far consists of 8  tunnels all drifted in upon the lead.  At a, distance of lot) feet in the lower  tunnel . in a cross cut; 7 feet; to the  right a body of oro was encountered  which measured about six feet in  width, lt is of very high grade, carrying sulphides of gold, together with  lead and silver values. Samples of  the new strike of ore have been sent'  east for assay, the result of , which is  uwaited with much interest. Tina  strike, which is the largest made so  far in the camp, consists of a bi.dy ol"  solid galena and has every evidence of  being a permanent, veiii. Unfortunately, four daj's iifter the lend wns  .���������struck the cabins were destroyed by  fire and the contractors,'.Messrs. Ford,  .Thompson and ''others lost all ' tli-aii-  supplies. This necessitated closing  down work for the present until fret.li  supplies can betaken in, which will nol  be until early in May, owing to the  unusual depth of snow. After that  active operations on a large scale will  be carried on and new cabins and other  buildings concerned.  Mr. 'Darragh is also operating the  Copper Dollar for tbe same company.

It is n free gold  proposition and as soon as work is  sufficiently advanced a stamps will be  erected.
