Mulock at the Inst session of fai'lia-  nient, upon the following {(rounds :  Our organizations have already protested against the former proposed  Bill which was certainly (if enacted) a  ('oinpulsory Arbitration Act.  Our Organizations have always subscribed to und endorsed the principle  of Voluntary  Arbitral ion as a iiie.111.-  tif_cuiic-ilintioii   in tho  sel tleineitt of  labor disputes.  But we have never subscribed to,  und nre. nor, willing now to subscribe  to the theory of Compulsory Arbitru'  lion. It seems to us thai, compulsion  lakes all of thu essentials nut nl  11 i'lii I ration, nnd if the proposed Bill be  enacted it"would retard the legitimate  progress and iu time disrupt nil such  labor organizations as ours in the  Dominion of Canada.  We wish to call yoiir attention to  the fact that such ornaniziitions as  ours have been established and doinij  biLiinusa in Canada for the past 20 or  30 years. Ana never after being  established and recognized on untl by  a lttiilwny Com nan y has a strike  occurred, *or a lockout lieen declared,  either by or against ourOi-gnni/.titions.  We, therefore, contend and protest  that this Bill if enacted would work  detrimentally to the very best interests  of ourselves and the citizens of this  fair Dominion as a whole, and have  the very opposite effect, intended and  claimed by its supporters.  . At the very least we contend and  protest that legislation along such  lines is unnecessary so far as organizations such as ours are concerned.  St. sure are we that the enactmuut  of this Bill would be detrimental to the  best interests of the citizens as n  whole (as well as ourselves), that we  feel that we are fully justified in  protesting against the same.  In conclusion we wish lo state that  we will continue to protest against the  enactment of legislation of any kind,  which wo consider will injure the high  standing labor organizations have  attained in this conntry; and if such  legislation is forced upon us again.*.!  our expressed wishes, we will employ  every means nt our command to have  such legislation repualed.

Tho  inventor of the syst������in maintained that  fat taken into the stomach does not  produce body-fat���������an hypothesis by no  means accepted by medical men generally.  Under this system, tjiree meals a day  are allowed. Breakfast consists of two  ounces of toast, thickly plastered with  butter. For dinner, soup made of beef  marrow is given, followed by four ounces  of fat meat, smothered with fat sauce.  A small quantity of green vegetables  may -be added. Supper consists of an  egg, followed by a little very fat meal,  and an ounce of bread thickly covered  witih'lnitter. After each meal a cup of  tea, without milk or sugar, is given. It  will be noticed that, notwithstanding the  large proportion of fat, this is really tt  very "restricted diet.  Oertel's system provides a dietary similar to that first described, thougn not  quite so severe, and adds to it a considerate amount of hill-climbing���������a form  of exorcise to which .the corpulent arc  certainly not addicted.  The system invented toy Germain See  is that of Khstein plus thc consumption  of vast quantities of fluid, hot tea being  specially favored, on the ground that in  this way the elimination of 'waste material is promoted. But life can hardly  be worth living on a diet of fat, washed  down with huge potations of warm unsweetened tea! Most people would prefer to remain corpulent.  Most Remarkable Strike on  Record.  That the' women of Persia nre  something more ihau the mere  slavc3 of their lords and master**  is evident from the following incident  related "by Wilfred Spiuroy in his entertaining volume, "Persian Uhildren of tht  Koyal l-'amily:" "In the autumn of 18U0  a complete monopoly of *the purchase,  sale and manufacture of native-grow]  tobacco wns granted by the Shall, Nasi  rud-Din, to an Knglish company, entitlei  the Imperial Tobacco Corporation of I or  sia, which was formed to work it.

The suggestion that tho privnc"  of their homes wns in danger of .hemp  violated sufficed to kindle the irresistible  vitality of the race; and the whole conn-  try, headed by the women and tne  priests,' went 011 strike. Mirza Htisun.  tho high priest, of the sacred city of Ker-  bela, declared tobacco to be unlawful to  the true followers of the -prophet, and  every man and every woman was forbidden either to smoke or to sell it. lhe  priestly prohibition was obeyed;-the women, ever to tha fore in upholding the.  rights of Uie people to develop the resources of the country themselves, refused te allow tiair husbands to smoke  in the harems; raids were made upon  susnootcd tea-ubops by vigilance man,  who smashed every water-pipe, they could  lay thoir hands on; ministers of the  crown were cooreed toy their wives to* forswear the soothing weed; men and women took thoir; walks abroad wearing  the sullen; and irritable look Uaibitual.to  smokers who give* up the habit too_ suddenly; even the Shah, himself had no  choice than to smoke on the sly, like a  schoolboy, eo overruling was the whim  of Uie hsxli-as of his harnm. The result of  the strike, probably tha most remarkable, and certainly tho most representative on record, was'that, .tne Shah, in  January, 1892, v*tj ot goverakig a nation of -Kin-smokew, yielded to the popular damoiMtratSoa by oaaceling the entira  eoncewsion, prontising pecuniary -compensation for the rupture oi eontraet;-*  promise which was faithfally fulnlled.

As they talked they  "heartf a crackling of twigs -behind them.  "I believe it's elecr," said Ma". Holmes,  Tho guide said'"no." A moment later  tho crackling became louder. Both men  then thought surely deer wero coming  down the mountain side, and they leaped  to their feet.  "They're deer, sure; look out," said  Holmes softly.  Both men stepped nsido nnd waited.  Mr. Holmes hud a rillo in his hands, and  ho and Iho guide stood watching tho  thicket above them, whence the crackling  sound eiinio. As they looked, the jji'iiv.  iioso of a grizzly wns protruded through  Ihe foliage, and Mr. Holmes and tha  guide stepped backward while they  caught I heir breaths. Mr. Holmes is a  crack  shot,   but  ho  had   never  had   e.t-  Cericnco with grizxlics. The nose of tho  ear made n Jlno mark, niul Mr. Holmes  raised his rille to blaze away. Iio was  about twenty yards from Iho bear. Just  ns ho was going to lire there was moro  crackling of brush, and two other nnd  larger grizzlies thrust their heads  through the thicket toward Oho men. Thof  guide turned pnlo.  "For heaven's sake, don't shoot," he  called.   Mr. Holmes lowered his riflo.  "Hun for tlio hill! Run for your life!"  yelled the guide. ������  Mr. Holmes heard him yell "run!" but  did not catch the instructions to go for  the hill. Near the crest of till0 hill was  a clump of trees, and Mr. Holmes hande-  a rush for them with the idea thnt he-  might find a hiding place or some place  of shelter. Tho bears gave venL te frightful bellowings nnd went bounding over  stones and chaparral nfter Mr. Holmes.  He afterwards said it was Iho mo-it awful moment of his life. He siretuhed  every nerve .ind exerted every muscle.  The bellowings of the three grizzlies close  behind loltl him (here was one: chance in  a million for him lo escape alive.  The 'bull grizzly bear was nearest. Just  as Mr. Holmes felt the hot "breath of  this beast upon his hands," he resolved to  do something desperate. He wheeled  around quickly. The grizzly towered  above him. lie innclc a Inst ell'ort to get.  his gun in position and fined. At that,  moment he Mas knocked down.

The  female gave tin angry roar, .shook her  head and snapped at Mr. Holmes' face,,  and he gave his head a feeble jerk. It  wns just "in -time. J To heard the teeth  snap in his face with" a sound like that  of closing a steel 'trap.  Mr. Holmes swooned. He wns unconscious for three or four minutes, and  then, slowly rising, reconnoitred the situation. II0*saw .the bears with the cu1>  trotting at 'their feel disappearing in  the brush.

The guard had all but raised hla  ������������������whistle to his lips, when a porter waa  ���������seen hurrying along the platform with  ���������a young lady, dressed-in slight niourn-  ilng, who was evidently anxious to  vcatch the train.  The porter pulled open a door; lt Tbe-  "���������longed to a first-class compartment,  .and there was a single passenger in-  :6ide���������an elderly gentleman with a  ithick travelling rug wrapped round  "his knees, and books nnd papers litter-  .lug tho scat beside him.  ���������- The young lady gave a little inco;  "herent exclamation, and seemed aa  though she would hav.o drawn back.  -, But there was no time for this.  The guard banged tho door, ths  whistle sounded and the train moved  out of the station.  The young girl���������for she was nothing  Ttnore, being barely eighteen years ot  age���������sank into one of the comfortably  cushioned seats, with a look of such  "unmistakable agitation and distress  that the gentleman could not but observe it.  "I hope there is nothing amiss," lis  ���������said, courteously. "Surely tliey have  'not put you in the wrong train. This  :1s for London."  "I'm in the right train, thank you1,  tut," she flushed crimson, then added,  .-bravely, though with an evident effort:  "'But this is a first-class compartment  .and I am only a third-class passenger."  "Indeed!    That Is a very trifling ac-  -cldent," said the gentleman, pleasantly. "I think you need not'worry over  ���������it.   No doubt the porter made a mistake."  "Y������s, that was it." murmured ths  ���������girl, with a suspicion of tears iu her  "eyes. "Can you tell- me how far I  ���������Shall have to go beftpre I can change*!"  "Well, we stop at.Stafford, 1 believa  Don't be uneasy. You may take mj  ���������word for It, the raiiroad company will  ���������not be hard on you."  And he .smiled in a frank, pleasanl  ���������fashion, calculated to set her enurelj  -at her ease.  After this there was silence for a  .minute or two.  The'gentleman li --hhiI to his papers;  (but, nevertheless, be gave, every now  ���������and then, a quietly scrutinizing look at  the girl sitting opposite.

A pure oval face���������the eyes large anil  lustrous, and fringed by long dark  .lashes, the complexion delicate as a  Tose-leaf, the shining hair of a beautiful golden brown.  A truly lovely face, the gentleman  ���������decided, but rather a sad one just now.  He noticed tlje extreme plainness ol  ler dress���������indeed, his clear gray eyes  ���������seemed to take in everything at a  glance���������and came to the conclusion  that she was a gentlewoman, though  a poor one.

After a few m'* *ites, he laid aside  >*his papers and lcoked at his young  traveling comi-t-alon. _  It waB easy to see that she was in  ���������"deep trouble; the tears were standing  'in her lovely eyes.   -  "My child," said the old gentleman,  "you are too young"���������his look added,  ���������"and too pretty"���������"to be making this  'long journey all alone. Have you  friends to meet you?"  The pleasant, fatherly manner appealed to the girl's Inmost heart; II  caused her tears to flow faster and  .faster.  "You are in trouble, I see.

' The girl needed no further encouragement to toll her simple story.  She was an orphan, she said; had  (lost both ber parents while she wai  iTery young, and had been brought uj  'by a relation of her mother's, who had  lived In the south of France.  This relation having died recently,  and her annuity dying with her, thi  girl was loft to make her own way la  ��������� the world.  She had no other relative that sh|  know of, and no friends in England. ,  Through tho medium of an advertise*  m-ent, however,' sho had, a fortnight  ago, obtained an engagement as companion to on Et'gllsli lady, and had  traveled from Franco yesterday to ful*  -n.: ������������������.-;���������;���������*.,.��������� ���������    ������������������:' ���������������������������..

' Marjorie uttered this little exclamation, and then sat silent, looking at  him with a world of gratitude shining  In her eyes.  "Take a little time, and think this  over," said Mr. Hyde, kindly. "It ia  my daughter for whom I want a companion, ��������� my only child, and a dear,  sweet girl, with whom, I feel sure, you  would be happy. We are by no means  people of fashion; but our home is a  pleasant one, a quiet country house, a  dozen miles from London, and very  prettily situated. As to references, I  can only refer you to my friends aid  ...neighbors." .   "Oh, sir!" exclaimed Marjorie, teal***  fully, quite overcome by his kindness.  "Well, then, my dear child, think it  over for yourself. If you do decide to  come to us, I tell you frankly I shall  be very pleased, and so, I am sure, will  my daughter.

After a little morn conversation the  train slopped at Sinn'ord.  You will stay with me, o*: Bourse.***  said Mr. Hyde, nrtlcing her look of  hesitation and indecision. "You will  not leave this for a thlrd-elass compartment?"  She thanked him with ber eyes, and  the next moment a mnn-ser.vant, in  neat dark livery, come up te the window, and, touching his hat, asked it  bis 'master wanted anything.  (To be Continued.)

As she did so her  tortured eyes met Mncnirc's, and the  glint "of satisfaction that darted from  his, though he would havo hidden it,  startled lier. She set down the glass  quickly. What In d that look meant?  Was he pleased that she had drunk his  wine only because of his triumph in compelling her obedioncp, or wns there a  more subtle reason?  Her heart knocked against her side,  and her hands grew cold ns her gaze traveled questioningly from one hard face  to another. Was there one in this  strange company who would sympathize  or help her.if she went down on her  knocs to implore it? She did not believe  that there was one. And Baron von Zellheim did not come. :.--.;.-'���������.  Fearful lest she hnd made a serious  mistake, sho watched her own-feelings.  Had she experienced any did'erent sensations, she asked herself, anxiously, since  she had drunk those few sips of wine?  At first she hoped thnt lier excited  fancy alone conjured up the imagined  difference, but slowly she was obliged to  acknowledge that she felt a slight giddiness, a weakness of tlie limbs of which  she had not been conscitjp.*** bofc-rc. Her  eyelids drooped, and she lifted them with  nn effort. There wns a faint prickling  in the pnlqis of her hands nnd the; soles  of lier feet.' The beating of her heart,  which had been like the wild fluttering of  a bird against the bars of a cage, slowed  to a heavy, measured throbbing at longer intervals. Thc shrill laughter of the  women nl 'to table sounded metallic,  unreal, and ..ir away. A mist rose between her and the faces lo which a few  minutes ago she had turned a vainly appealing gaze.  CHAPTER XL.  The Eye of the Moonstone.  How the dinner went on Winifred did  not know, foT she wns like one in*n.  dream. Macaire had talked to her and"  forced answers at first, but now he let  her alone, well pleased, perhaps, wilh the  progress of events. Some of the guests  who appeared to know each other well,  had addressed a rcmaik to-her now and  then, but when she scarcely replied they  turned their attention elsewhere.  "I've been drugged, I've been drugged,"  Winifred kept saying to herself, ns if the  repetition of the startling -words must  rouse her failing.energies to some su-  .preme effort. " 'But, though her . mind  struggled with the creeping lethargy, the  body would not answer the call to arms.  As the champagne went round the  laughter grow louder, the women bolder.  Strange jest* were made, such jests ns  Winifred had ii"vci- been forced to hear  even behind the scenes at the Salisbury,  nor did she hear them now. The words  drummed upon her oars without conveying a meaning.-All the voices seemed  to join in a wild babble, inarticulate ns  the voice of a river fed from many rushing brooks.  'Winifred wns going to sleep, nnd so  dulled were all her faculties that she no  longer cared.  ���������Her head, with ils crown of bright,  waving hair���������so different from the artificial structure of her neighbors'���������nodded  on the slender throat, like a lily shaken  on its stem by the wind. Her lashes fed..  "Ila, ha!" laughed Macaire.- "Sec, our  Mis3  Ingenue  is  missing, -her    beauty  mo. You bound yourself, in your gold-  greed, to do'anything I exacted of you  when the six months should bo up. What  I meant to mako of you was a. groom in  my stables, a place you're well fitted  for, and you can't refuse it without  breaking your pledge, the same as obtaining eight thousand pounds on ftdse  pretenses. How will Miss Gray fancy being tho wife c*f my groom? We must  ask her when she wakes from her fainting fit."  r'Lct me first twk you a question" said  Newcome.   "Whose property is this?"  He supported Winifred's slender, white-  dad body with his lott arm, and pressed  it close against his heart. With his right  hand he held up. a moonstone, cut in the  shape of a Sphinx's head. As he raised  it aloft the light touched tho stone, and  struok out a strange blue gleam, like an  eye that peered through a cloud, searching, searciiing for something that sooner  or later it would find.  "That is mine!" snid Macaire, and  sprang towards it. But Kowcoinc lifted  tlio stone beyond his reach.  "You aro sure it is yours?" he asked  again.  "I've had it for years, till it was stolon from mo. Unless you want to bo  called 'thief as well as dog and liar, you  will hand it back."  "You have had it for yea������s?" Newcome  aediocd. "I thought so. lt was you who  stole it from Harold Norman."  For once in (ij^ life, Lipnel Macaire  visJ&fy quailed. His hideous face seemed  literally to wither, his bo.dy lo shrink;  hut in a moment he was himself again,  all traces of emotion gone), save for n  quivering of thc nostrils, a slight twitching of the marred eyelids.  "I don't know the name," he said.  Hope Newcome turned a sudden blaze  of hatred and contempt upon him. "You  know it as well as that of "Leland "Mar-  mioii, the Californian murderer!" he  flung at the millionaire.  Speechless, Macaire stared at him.  with mouth falling open, jaw dropped  down.    Then, his veioe eoniing back, he  gasped: "Yiiu scoundrel!>v  "I am Harold Norman's son," answered the man who hud called himself  Hope Newcome. "His son, and the son  of 1"'. E. Z. I am Harold Norman's namesake, and I have lived for this night,  lived to be his avenger."  "Great Heavens!" he heard Mncniru  mutter, beneath his panting breath.  Even for that iron self-control, the? stubborn courage that could inllict horrible  sclf-mutilution for bare life's sake, and  safety's sake, was broken down. But  again it was only for a moment.  "I wonder if you know what you nre  talking about?'' Macniro sneered, his  voice coming back to steadiness. "I only  know that you seem to be threatening.  Tako care or I will have you arrested."  Hope Newcome*���������or Harold Normun���������'  laughed. "Try it," he snid. "You will  nover havo so good a chance. Tho police  are outside now, for they havo seen certain letters found long ago, but not too  long for justice, in the pocket of a dead  man���������one of those whom you, Leland  Marmion, mmuerod."  As that last word leaped like a sword  from tho accuser's lips, a strange tiling  happened. The women at the table cried  out in terror, antl in thc same instant  utter darkness fell. The brilliant lights  that had made vivid the blue und gold  and purple and marble-white vanished  like a burst bubble, and the room wns  black as a night of plague. The screams  and! the sudden darkness came together.  Tlio quickest eye and ear could not have  sworn with certainty which wa3 first.  Someone had turned off tho electric  lights���������how, nobody knew. There was a  soft fluttering and rustling of women's  dresses, hyst rical exclamations, and the  crash of breaking dishes and falling  chairs a.s people pushed away from the  table, blinded and confused by thc black  darkness.  Only Hope Newcome did not move.  Even if he lost his revenge, ho would not  put Winifred away to recover the chance,  slipping from him. She was waking from  her stupor, nnd clung to him. murmuring  the name hy which she had known him.  And, stooping closer, he thought he  hoard her whisper:  "Partner, partner, if you could forgive!"  Bleep 1 ' Sho would have-us. believe that  she's in bed every night at ten."  "You've plied her with too 'much champagne, oh, generous host!" cried one of  the women,  -i ���������'   _-  "Perhaps," " confessed Macaire, while  everybody laughed. - "The child must not  have any more to-night. 'Next time you  meet' her 1 warrant" she'll'do better. In  a month she'll hold her own with any of  you."  "To the next meeting!" Glasses were  lifted,'and much champagne'was drunk.  "Poor little dear, she doesn't look very  comfortable!" giggled a lady in many  diamonds and a small allowance of bodice- "She -iTon,t^be-able-to-sit_up_with  us bigger children for dessert."  "Ill give instructions for her to bo  tnken away where sho can have her  nap out in peace," said Macaire, his eyes  viciously bright. He nodded to a footman, who moved forward respectfully to  take his master's order; and at this instant, 'without being announced, Hopo  Newcome came into thc house.  "Von Zellheim I" exclaimed one of the  men.   . -'���������".     .'���������..������������������'..  Winifred's closing eyes. opened -wide  for the fraction of a second. They were  no longer bright, but dull and curiously  glassy.. "Help!" she whispered, rather  than spoke, straining to make her voice  heard as one tries to scream and break  the cold spell of a nightmare. -Then her  head fell forward again, and she would  have slipped from her chair to the floor  had not Macaire caught her.  It was the movement, not the sca-reely  audible whisper, which drew Hope New-  come's eyes to the drooping figure in  white; and, seeing the lovely, pallid face  of Winifred Gray, he sprang towards ber,  hia eyes blazing incredulous horror at  her presence here. '  "This is a pleasant surprise, my dear  Von Zellheim," said Macaire, his ejajree-  sion somewhat belying his words. "Your  pardon for one moment while I see to  Miss Gray's comfort, and a place shall  ke made for* you. Our young friend's  head is not as strong "as it might be,  and she has been overcome by a little  more champagne than -she's been accustomed to taking."  For an instant Hope Newceme bad  lost) self-control; but in tha short interval occupied by the millionaire's excuses  he had regained it. * He knew Winifred  Gray; and he knew Maoaire���������at last!  Never in his life of vicissitudes, perhaps,  had he received such a shock as the sight  of Winifred Gray at Maeafre's house,  dining in this eempeny, had given;  but, though he was absotately ignorant  of the circumstances whiei. had led up  to her coming, it took him no longer  than a second to ebfine that she was the  victim of some plot���������possibly not- the  first web which this cunning spider had  spun for her undoing. And at4thc end of  tEat  one  second  he  had  made   up  nn  mind how to act.  "Whatever had caused Miss Gray's indisposition it is certainly not due to  champagne," he said, in a loud, cold  voice, to be heard by everyone. 'I know  her well enough to vouch for that, since  sho is to 'be my wife. And aa the is to  be my wife it is my place to take care of  her. I will relieve you of the trouble,  Mr. Macaire."  -  As he spoke he slopped forward as if  to remove her from Macaire's arms.  It was the first time that the millionaire had touched Win.ifred Gray" more  familiarly than to take her hand. Thc  fragrance of her yellow-brown hair was  intoxicatingly sweet in his nostrils; he  had been half drunk with the joy of success at last; and with an oath he drew  back from the younger man who had  just announced himself his rival. There  was no reason for holding his iieroe temper in, so far as he knew, and he loosed  it savagely I  ."How dare you?" ho demanded. "She's  nothing lo you, you liar. She's mine, or  she wouldn't be hero to-night."  Newcome did not answer, but grasping  Macaire's wrist with one of his brown,  strong hands, he twisted it back so that  the joint cracked in its socket, and the  millionaire gave a shrill, irrepressible  squeal of pain.  Quietly Newcome took Winifred from  him, holding her against his "shoulder,  and defying Macaire with the cold menace of his dark eyes.  Always hideous, the rod, glazed face of  Nero '"the Second was appalling in his  rogc. At sight of it the women sprang  up from the table, pale under their paint.  Glasses were overturned, and eyes that  liad gazed, on many a strange scene  opened- wide to behold something of  more than common interest.  "You dog; you common cur that I  Jook from the gutter!" shrieked Mncaire. "You puppet that I hired with  my money to dance at my bidding! You  thought you might presume oh your brute  strength to come here and insult me in  ray own house, I suppose, since our con-  "tractwasn't-out-yetr-But-ifs-gofc'hard--  ly a month more to run "  "We'll call it cancelled now," said  Hope Newcome. "You and I will have  no more contracts in future."  "Everyone here shall know who you  are," Mncaire went on, furiously. "All  the world that I've been laughing nt  shall knew to-morrow, and whore will  you.be then? Why, kicked back to your  kennel by the women who've made you  their pet."  "My kennel's rathor a nice'one," snid  Kewcotne, "Sehloss Zellheim, ori the  Rhine. It is no longer a ruin. I have  had it restored in these last few months.  I hope to take Miss Gray there; only  she will then be thc Baroness von Zellheim, and any man who has told lies  about her will have heen horse-whipped  into publicly apologizing."  "Sehloss Zellheim I" sneered Macaire.  "The money you've saved out of what I  flung to you wouldn't have bought it."  "The ruined castle has been tho property of my family for many years,  though they were absentees, and too  poor to restore it. That has been my  privilege."  . "Pshaw 1" laughed Macaire, hatefully.  "These friends will know how much to  believe of tha-t, and what to tell in their  clubs to-morrow when I say that you've,  no more right to the name of Von Zellheim than I have. I gave you tho name,  to make sport for myself, and sport I've  had, but there's better to come. For  six months your pay for breaking Joey  Nash and being at my beck and call was  to continue-^good pay, a thousand  pounds, a month,-to say nothing of the  sum you got down to start with*-������������������"  ��������� "It's trebled ..now," cut .inr Newcome,  coolly. "You gave ine such excellcnt'ad-  vice as to speculations. I took it. and  succeeded beyond my best hopes. That's  the one thing for which I have to thank  you."  "There speaks your dog's ingratitude.  But many a servant's got rich in his  master's service; and you're my. servant  ���������or you're bound by your* own word to  be���������till the end of the she months, and  pvprylmdy shall know it; cvervbodv shnH  hear the great joke now and laugh with  CTIAPTiai XLI.  The  Mills  of   the  Gods.  Never for one moment had Lionel Macaire been unprepared for the possibility  of the blow which had fallen to-night.  He had not expected it; he had told  himself a thousand times that it would  never fall upon him���������that it could not  fall. Still he loved life, and he had  worked hard to make it worth living.  Ho lift *' shed blood to make it worth  living, and he did not mean that* Nemesis  should strike him from  behind. :���������  The millionaire had not a house nor a  room of his in one of his houses where  all electric lights could not be turned  off by means of a single button. His  steam yacht, waiting his orders in harbor, was always ready to start at ten  minutes' "notice. Once he would have  had to depend upon horses for a dash to  the sea, but now he had the means by  which he could outdistance the fastest  horse on earth.  In his stables stood a racing Daimler  auto-car of fifty horse-power, though  its seating capacity was but for two persons. Like the yacht, it was kept ready  by its engineer for an instant start, filled  with petrol and water, its machinery  oiled.  To-night, as he switched off the lights  from the dining-room, he flung himself  at a swinging door behind the purple  drapery���������a door by which the servants  entered through a passage leading to the  huge kitchens. The door moved noiselessly, and Macaire's artificial foot limped  over the thick feU with which the floor  was covered faster than it had ever done  before.  Half-way clown the passage was a door  which opened near the stables. A moment, and Macaire was in the room  where the motor-car was kept,, for the  key was on his chain, and only the engineer, absent now, had a duplicate.  Macaire sprang to tho car nnd lit the  electric lamps, his heart pounding in his  ear, for the great crisis had come, and he  was working for life or death.  Tine, Hope Newcome might have lied;  lie might suspect, yet-not have the proofs  he hinted tit. But it would not do to  risk his having lied. If Mncaire could  reach Gravcsenel, whore the "Diavola" lay  (ho hoped that few knew she was there),  before the police of London had warned  tho police of Grave-send by telegraph,  there was a chance for him still. He  would trust the yacht to show her heels  ,a anything alloiu. The sets were wide.  There were countries where he could  hide himself; and thero wns money on  board the "Diavola"���������money and thousands of pounds' worth of diamonds  which he l-cnt there i" ���������* fifr* in r**>*..-< *-*r  "suchnecessityns hnd nrisento-niglit.-He-  wbuld be comparatively poor, yet ho  would want for nothing, and ho would at  least have defied the hangman.  In two minutes the car was ready to  start, the stable doors flung open. By  this time those whom he hnd left groping  in the dark would have light again. Tho  police would be in if the dead man's son  had told the truth���������but they were not  hero yet.  He ran limping from the opening doors  back to the car and olimbed on board.  Then with a rush and throbbing of its  machinery, the Daimler tore into the  street.  Lot them come now" if " they would.  What did he care? W-ho could catch  him now?

With its two electric lamps like great  white dragon-eyes Hazing in the night,  tho Daimler tore through the streets at  tho rate of thirty miles an hour.. People  filing-themselves wildly out of the way,  shrieking for tho ppUce, shouting that  here was a madman ori a motor-oar;  cabmen lashed their snorting horses-up  side streets to avoid destruction or drove  in desperation on to the pavement, the  wheels of their vehicles here and there  smashing a window, adding tho keen,  high treble of crashing glass to the uproar.' .-���������������������������"'  Policemen yelled to the hatless man  bent forward over the steering gear, bidding him stop on pain of desperate penal-  ticiv but -Macaire only laughed. Rain  had begun to fall, and the '".wind and the  water, spraying against his hot face,  esolod his brain, giving him a sense of  power and exhilaration. Ho felt like  Juggernaut, and longed for victims for  the wheels of his rushing car, which flew  faster bhan tho flying minutes, bearing  him out of dange* to a new lffe.  He ,eMd not think of all that he had  left behind, all that be must sacrifice,  for that way madneBs lay. Yet Winifred's sweet., airlish face would rise be-.  I'oro liim. He would "not have "nad this  thing happen until ho had crushed the  butterfly under his heel and broken iu  wings so that it must lie for ever in the  dust. And Hope Newcome, the son oi  the man he had done to death; he would  i'niii hnve sent him after his father.  "To think that she. should have been  11iirohl Norman's wife, and I miyei  guessed it! Fool���������fool!" he railed uitnl  ly against himself.  Jlo had passed the suburbs now. I.on  dou nnd London's lights would soon be*  lol't. behind. lie would do the trick. The  Daimler and his "Diavola" would save  him yet.  Suddenly it was ns if a figure rose out  of thc ctirth before! him, .lilting in front  of the cur its it rushed on along a white  ribbon of winding road, lt was radiant  with a strange, pule radiance, and out  of a faint golden mist gleamed a face���������  tho face of F. K. Z.  "I'm mad!" he cried. "I'm mad. It't*  not thero���������it's a delusion."  Yet the eyes looked at him from tin  pale, lovely face that he had seen in  countless tlteiuns, that he had fancied he  saw duplicated in Winifred Gray's, and  he could not run it down.  In another instant tho faco would  havo been under his wheels, crushed out  of all semblance of beauty. With a jerk  of the steering lever ho swerved the car  to the right. The movement wns too  sudden for the tremendous speed at  which tho car wns going, and, with a  crash, the Daimler leaped from thc road  into the ditch at the side, turning over  as it fell/ Macaire was flung olf, and  .with a grinding, renUmg pain in his leg,  fell into unconsciousness.  Then came dreams, a changing kaleidoscope of dreams, with flashing lights  and tho booming of cannon. He was  dragged back hy sheer physical agony to  consciousness again.  At first he hoped, well-nigh prayed,  that this waking was the false waking  of a dream. Ho ilreamt���������or was it true?  ���������that the car had fallen on him, pinning  hiin underneath, writhing and helpless, in  an agony of pain, lie dreamt���������or was  it real?���������that the whole sky was bright  with tho weird, pale light from a pillar  of flame that shot far up into the purple  night, up, straight up, higher than the  tree-lops.  Tho lamps had ignited the petrol with  tho falling of the car, and the whole  fabric was on fire. Oh, tlie pain, the  horror! Yes, it was true, and he must  die here, like a rat in a trap.  In his agony faces crowded round him,  faces that he had struck life out of long,  long ago. For what they had sufl'erea,'  for what he had made many sutler, was  he paying now.  Heavens, how long it lasted 1 How  long it took a man to die! Perhaps  even now- it ��������� was a dream. It was too  horrible to be true.  Interesting* ]:  It has passed into as:  Yet the papers said next day that it  j*iad been true; and the world that had  known Macaire was shocked. No one  grieved for the man who was gone. But  a girl, hiding her face against her lover's  arm, shuddered, sobbing that in spite of  all she would have saved him from so  terrible an ending if she had had the  power.  "The mills of the gods,-my darling,"  answered the man who loved her, and  would never let her -go far from him  again, "are slow in their grinding, but  they grind exceeding small."  (Tlie End. )  Cunning* Siberian Natives.  When compelled to travel' all night,  the Siberian natives always make a practice of stopping just before sunrise and  allowing their dogs lo go to sleep. They  argue that if the dog goes to sleep while  it is yet dark and waxes up in an hour  and finds thc sun shining he will suppose that he has had a full night1*** rest  and will travel all day without thinking  of being tired. One or even two hours'  stop at any other time is perfectly useless, as the dogs will be uncontiollahle  from that time forward until they arc  permitted lo take what they think a full  allowance of  sleep.  A Hopeless Case.  There was a brilliant reception at the  house of Mrs. Amoiy. Among the guest3  was a certain Mr. Mackenzie, a man o������  grave and somewhat taciturn demeanor,  whom .several of he young ladies present had tried to engage in conversation,  but without much success.  One of them spoke to thc hostess  about him.  "He seems to he rather uneasy and  out of place at a party like this," sho  said.  "Yes," replied Mrs. Amory, with a  bright smile, "he can't talk anything but  sense."  most anything can be iusurcn .i. i-.iyu'*,,...  The other day, according to the "Out.-  look," a broker actually received a letter**  from an ardent golfer who wanted a rat*  for insuring himself against the loss of  Haskell balls. The broker was not i*������  golfer, but his enquiries speedily eliciteti  the fact that there was no market its  Lloyd's. That venerable institution, by  the way, 'has a flourishing golf club ot  its own, so the risk was nde.juately appreciated.  They   have   got   a   highly   ingeniou*  method of dealing with drunkenness ilk  Denmark which  reflects groat credit oa  tho niaster-mind that devised it.   Wheal-  a policeman finds a drunken man in thai-  street he hails a cab and drives tho toe*������  ardent devotee of Bacchus to his domicile.   If he is very far gono, a consider-  r  nble time is  often spent in  diseoverinjjf   "  whero   the  intoxicated   individual   live.****.  Hut who pays for the cab?   That is jusfc  whero the ingenuity comes in.    The calk  is paid for by the publican who sorvoet  tho man with"his la**t drink!    Now what,  we should like to know is, how they find:  that public.it'.  Appendicitis i*> by no means new, if w������.  aro to credit thc researches of a Frenchman, M.   I.annelongue,   who   claims   to������  have discovered that cases of it existett  in Egypt under the Pharaohs.   Says th**-*  ���������'Revue  Scientifique:"  "It has long been confused with peritonitis, typhlitis, intestinal catarrh, and!  with disea-.es of tihe liver, kidneys and.  ovaries. At the Trous9eau Hospital from.  1SS5 to 1SS9 there were noted 470 enscte-  of peritonitis.   From 1805 lo 1S9D, in the*  same hospital, after appendicitis had become recognized, thero were 443 cases or-  it���������about the same number.   Appendicitis is thus not any more frequent than its*,  the days when it'constitutc-el a good parfe-  of the acute case3 of peritonitis of unknown  cause.    Appendicitis is a micro--  bian disease.   .   .   .   Its causes are nu*-.  merous.   .   .   .   Tlio influence of  into*  tinal worms has been noted by Metchni-  l.ofl".     'These   worms,'   says   M.   Lni:ne*<  longue,  'have   boon   found   by   my   colleague, M. Guilliod, in 12S cases, or thir-  ly-live per cent, of those examined.'   Thd-  worms may cause appendicitis by introducing into this organ the microbes witfe  which their bodies are covered," j.   "  False prophets and fictitious Messialiu  are not always merely victims of their-  own  hallucinations.    They  aro   not in-  frecjuently  the  result of the  fanaticisn*-.  of others.    A strange and certainly instructive example of this is to be fouiiti  iu the proceedings of thc Russian  peasantry near Kronstadt.   A famous priestk  of  the  neighborhood, Father John, ha*--  in  spite  of  himself been   credited  witl*.  divine  attributes  by   the ^village  folks.    _.  -One peasant wrote a hymn to him, and   i_,  a sect began to grow up whose object*. -*."  wero to worship  him.    The remarkable* .  thing is that the peasants persist in tlieir-  . belief in spite of rebukes and denials and:  threats from Father John himself.  Paris is enjoying a swindle now nofc,  comparable with the Humbert affair, bufc  ���������=till   with  some   unusual   features.      A. -  _  pretending  canon,  an  unfrocked   priest^,    ..'  named  Rosemberg, of Jewish  origin, ������--  financier named Malleval antl some others plucked a wealthy  widow, Madamet**-  Civet.    Malleval U an interesting character.    His lively youth  lcsulted in hi**.,  being disinherited.   He decided to marry  money, and did it.   And then on the day *'  of  his wedding  he  went   out   with   his,-.-  ivife, took a cab, went lo a certain gambling club on the Bouleiards, and  toltt-  lier to  wait outside.    That was,  it np���������'  pears, in the afternoon, nnd at *i o'clock",  in the morning the bride* was still waiting.   When he finally arrived, the bride-   * -  groom informed her that he had loot the, *.  whole of her "dot" nt play.    According^  ���������o the Paris papers that was bill a iypi---<r   ,  <al incident of his career!  I  HUSH!   THESE  MAIDS KNOW  that the long agony  of female weaknesses,  the torture of their  more mature sisters,  may be all avoided by  the use of the great  South American  Nervine Tonic  which ���������jives impulse,  power, vigor end vim  to every vital organ,  thus producing or  preserving BEAUTY  of FACE and FORM  "��������� by feeding the nerves  directly until they put the sys-  tem ia order.   - Edward Purrey, of Sydney Ontro,  British Columbia, states: ,rMy wlf������  wai taken down with nervous prostration which later developed into  paralysis o������ onu side.

A characteristic story is going round  about Her Majesty and the Archbishop  of Canterbury.   It is said that they were  filaying at cards, when His Grace sudden-  v "exclaimed; "Vou have revoked."  "Well," replied the Queen, "it is tlio  Grst time anyone has ever told me that  I revoked at cards." "I dure say.  ma'am," responded the Archbishop; "I  don't suppose tliey dared!"

A New Jersey clergyman in a small  town recently electrified liis congregation  by introducing into his sermon a dramatic account of Rudyard Kipling's deathbed scene.

"No, no," remonstrated  the  pastor;     "that     isn't    matrimony;  that's    the    definitio'i    of    purgatory."  "Leave her alone," said the archbishop;  "maybe .-she's.right."

Early in his literary, career, the lato  Frank Stockton, in conjunction with his  brother, John, wrote many poems with  which they afflicted the editors of various periodicals. The effusions came back  always. The editor of one magazine'.'was  an especial target of the Stocktons, but  as none of th-jii* poems were ever accepted, the brothers.came to the conclusion  ihat  this  editor had   no  conception  of  food poetry. To prove their belief, they  unted up and despatched to him an ode  little known from Milton. Within two  days they received a check and a letter  ef" thanks.

Mark Twain has address,-* tho following letter to the press:  *5'i* ��������� I am approaching .-.eventy;  it is In sight; it is only three years  away. Necessarily, I must go soon. It  is but matter-of-course wisdom, then,  that I should begin to set my worldly  house in order now. so that it may be  dono calmly and with thoroughness, in  place of wailing until the last day.  when, as we have often seen, the attempt  tc set both houses in order at the same  time, has been marred by the necessity  for haste and by the confusion and waste  of time arising front the. inability of the  notary and the ecclesiastic to work together harmoniously, taking turn about  .���������ind giving each other friendly assistance  ���������not perhaps in fielding, which could  hardly be expected, but ht least in the  minor olTices of keeping game and umpiring; by consequence of which conflict  of interests and absence, of harmonious  action a draw has frequently resulted  where this ill-fortune could not have  happened if the houses had been set in  order ono at a. time and hurry avoided  by beginning in season, and giving to  each the amount of time fairly and justly proper to it.  In setting my earthly house in order I  find it of moment that I should attend  in person to ono or two matters which  moil in my position have long had the  habit of leaving wholly to others, with  consequences often most regrettable. 1  wish toi speak of only one of these matters at this time: Obituaries. Of necessity, an Obituary is a thing which cannot bo so judiciously edited by any hand  as hy that of the subject of it. In such  a work it is not the Facts that are of  chief importance, but the light which the  obituarist shall throw upon them, the  meaning which he shall dress them in.  the conclusions which he shall draw  from them, and the judgments which he  shall deliver upon them." The Ycrdicl-s,  you understand: that is the danger-line.  In considering this matter, in view of  my approaching change, it has seemed In  mc wise to take such measures as may  bo feasible, to acquire, .by courtesy of  the press, access to my standing obituaries, with the privilege���������if. this is not  asking too much���������of editing, not then  Facts, hut their Verdicts. This, not foi  present profit, lurther than as concerns  iny family, but as a favorable influence  lii'able on tho Other Side, where there  ire some who are not friendly to mc.

From *l ikiv book of dreams, not by  a played-out jjypsy, but by a college professor, the Chicago "Tribune" selects the  following passages:  To be sure, the gray grniuldamcs have  always held their dreams to be true, and  have always interpreted their ccrio visions of the night into future events of  colossal moment. So, too, the romantic  lassies in search of signs of lovers, and  here and theresome masculine rhnpsodist,  who warmed to the world of tho unreal  and fanciful. But not so the scientific  (vise men. They have always known  better���������until now.  X. Vnschidc and H. Picron of the Paris  Institute nre two leading exponents of  the value af dreams in diagnosing physical disorders, and have collected from  here, there and everywhere, of all times,  not omitting the all-convinchig present-  day, illustrations and data which go to  establish the accuracy of their position  in a way not known to tho ignominious  gypsy.  This is their idea: In sleep the mind  forsakes thc outer world and yields itself  to introspection. During our waking moments the external sensations prevail.  The. brain is preoccupied with what occurs outside the body, and, unless there  bo importunate calls from internal  sources, pays no attention to what is  happening within. When sleep overtakes us il is vice versa. The internal  organic sensations predominate aiul occupy tlie exclusive attention of the mind  unless external demands for its notice  become emphatic. This is why reasoning  begun during the course of the day or a  problem too intricate for the preoccupied  brain of waking hours can be carried'on  to successful issues in sleep. The brain  is not disturbed with interruption.  'Dreams are chiefly.'of three kinds:  those which reveal the temperament of  L11o dreamer; those which prognosticate  disease, and those which arc symptoms of  a. disease.  How Salt Cools Coffee.

I  Famous For Repartee.  ���������Of all lhe brilliant preachers of modern times, no one shone more re-  splemlenlly in conversation than  the eloquent Baptist minister, Robert  Hall. It is remarkable that, while in liis  writings hardly a glenni of wit or humor  is to be found, yet in the. social circle he  was distinguished by his terse and pungent sayings. All his life he was a martyr to an excruciating disease, and his  wittiest sayings were uttered when he  was writhing with sharp pain. A lady at  a friend's house found him so lost iii1  thought, that she vainly essayed to engage him iu conversation. At length,  impatient of his reveries, she said rlip-  panlly, in allusion to a "Miss Steel to  whom he was engaged lo he married:  "All, sir, if we hnd "but polished steel  here, wo might secure some of your attention; but "  "���������Madam,"interrupted the now roused  preacher, "make yourself qui to easy; if,  vou are not polished steel, you aro at  least polished hrnssl"  Hall had nn intense ahhorrence of religious cant, to whicli ho gave expression sometimes in thc most scorching  terms. A young minister, who was visit- ,  ing him, spent a day in sighing, ever and  anon begging pardon for his suspirations,  and saying that they were caused by  grief that ho had so hard a heart. When  tho lamentalions, which Hall had borne,  patiently the first day, were.resumed'at  brenkfast on tho second, he said.:    ���������  "Why, sir, don't be so cast down; remember tho compensating principle, and  bo thankful and still."

Christianity consists largely in tho  ability to sco visions���������ideal things���������and  be lifted by them into a better life. In  all tho round of our living to belicvo  in good things is to sec them nnd to  have them.  To be cynical about men and women,  about institutions and societies, is lo  put out one's eyes nnd walk in darkness. Nothing pays better than to believe In good things, in the good Cod  and in tho good in men. This makes lifo  optimist ie,   charitable   nnd   hclpful-  The best investment you can put iu  men is to believe in them. For it has  this cll'eet on men when they are believed in, that they nre stimulated to be-  como what you believe theni. If there  is any manhood it will hear that call  and respond to il. Disbelieve in a man  and you make it hard for him.  But to be vitally aflectcd by a heavenly vision we musi see one that will  6top us on our. way. as Paul was stopped on his way to Duma.-.'us and ever  after saw things in a new lis;lit���������a vision that shall be like a new -tin risen  at high noon, or as it" a great battle  tad .been fought and tho dead and  ."wounded covered the ground, and the  ���������un looked dowu on many a thing that  ���������we loved and cherished, dead and cold,  oil tlio banners of our resistance furled  lor eYer and the true Hag triumphant  everywhere. Then a man awakes out of  Indolence into work, out of shifllcsi-ness  Into care, out of selfishness to live God's  truth and for his fellow-mtn.  This vision is not so far off or so rare  RS some may tkiak. Tho heavenly villous elustor and crowd around us. l.-'v-  ������ry "bush is ailamo with God and overy  ipot ts holy ground. Every life is a holy  Kind to bo resoued from tho infidels.  Cod in thi3 age and in this land masses  and multiplies heavenly visions. Every  Sne who is brought up in a good fauiily  baa everyday visions that for hi*- life  She must not be disobedient lo���������tho  quiet, shining life of father and molhjr,  the Christian home, whore all the atmosphere is suliused with the beauty aud fragrance of the gospel. A man must bo  obedient to the law of honor, integrity  nnd commercial worth that is taught  every day in this city'nnd throughout  the land or sink himself to the lowest  disgiacc. The cleanness, order and temperance of Christian communities are  tho elevating and ennobling principles of  our civilization and patriotism. All tho  lessons of industry, application and conduct taught in our schools;" every pretty farmhouse nestling among tho trees,  where contentment, virtue and' thrift  reign; overy court of justice and house  of penal detention, all the round of our  many-hued civilization constitute a vision of heaven and incentive to Christian living. By all these or by some of  ��������� these a man may bo lifted to a vision of  'Jesus Christ, to a better life and a bet-  -ier outlook.  The majority of men arc not moved  l)y great things, but by many things,  lt is the cumulative argument that is  drawn from a thousand sources and  grows by a thousand tributaries that  conquers men's minds and transforms  their lives. We look too far off and  .hope for too great things .when it is but  ��������� little turn in the path that will bring  us -into the right road.  This vision is not a solitary one. Wo  ture tempted to believe that it is the  ���������only one we shall ever have. This is a  mistake. Paul's life was a series of  .heavenly, visions and repeated impulses  to duty and service. We have repeated  fn this world what we believe in. If wo  "believe in truth and righteousness wo  ���������eek nnd find these for ourselves. Patriotism, art, sense of beauty grow in  eouls devoted to them. Many" pull down  the shades, draw the curtains, close tho  Hinds and say the world is dark.

The Cznr Was Caught  M.A.P. tells a story with regard to the  playing a game of whist at Horn burg,  and the present ICing, then, of course,  Prince of Wales, and several of his  friends were of the party. Among those  friends was Sir James Mackintosh, a  well-known bon vivant of the eighties  and nineties. Sir dames *,\as one ot  those blunl, downright, rough-spoken  Scotchmen. In the midst of the game  Sir James called out to the Czar.  "You've revoked." Everybody's blood  ran cold. The Prince of Wales, 1 have  been told kicked the Scotchman under  the table, and the Czar, blushing and  confused, exclaimed in bewilderment;,  '���������Revoked I Why, i never did such a  ���������"king in my life." But Sir james persisted, and the Monarch was proved to  be iu the wrong, whereupon Sir James-  replied to the observation of the Czar :  "1 dare say you've often t evoked, your  Majesty, but this is the hrst time you  were ever told so."  It is a curious example of the persist-  ?nee of tha English governing families  and of their close intermarriages, says  Mr. Harrison in his "Cromwell," that  the blood of Oliver Cromwell still run3  through female lines in the veins of the  following well-known persons; Marquis of Ripon, Earls of Chichester, Mor-  ley, Clarendon, Cowper, heir presumptive to the Earldom of Derby, Lord  Ampthill, Lord WaUinsham, Countess ot  i-lothcs.

Gladstone's Bravery.  In an address  at  the  unveiling of a  statue  of Gladstone  at  Glasgow,  some  lima  ago.  Lord    Rosebery    told  somo  stories of the "dead statesman.      "Most  men,"   ho   said,   "are   physically   brave,  but  Mr.   Gladstone  was   brave  among  the brave.    He had to the end the vitality of physical courage.      When well  on to 90 he    was knocked    over by a  cab   and   before   thc   bystanders  could  rally to his assistance he had pursued  the cab with a view to taking, its number."   In. regard to his genius for hard  work Lord Rosebery said :   "An  eight-  hour day  would  have  been holiday to  him���������for    he  preached    and    practised  Iho gospel of work  to  the  fullest extent.       When he  was  staying at Dal-  meny in 1879 he kindly consented to sit  for-his bust.      The only difficulty was  that there was no time for sittings, so  the  sculptor with  his  clay  model  was  placed - opposite Mr.   Gladstone   as he  worked  and   they   spent   the   mornings  together���������Mr. Gladstone writing    away  and the clay figure of himself less "than  a   yard   off gradually   assuming  shape  and form.     Anything more distracting  I cannot conceive, but it had no effect  on the busy patient."     Here is another  story: "A contemporary of his at Eton  once told rat of a scene at which my  informant was present, when some" loose  or  indelicate   toast  was   proposed   and  al! present drank it but young'   Gladstone.    In  spite   of  tho   storm   of  adjuration, objurgation and ridicule  that  raged around him he jammed his face,  as  it were, down in his  hands  on the  table and would not* budge."  it was n grand thing for him to"be able  to say whon he "-.toot! before King Ag-  rippa nnd thomrlit of his whole" life  from Uie day of Ihat ride to Damascus,  "1 was not disobedient." For obedience  is lhe one solid foundation of character  and success���������in the family, the school,  the store, the bank and' the railway.  Civilization is based upon obedience.  'A boy who will not obey has no place in  tho family and in the school. Disobedience i3 a source of demoralization and a  menace to'fho well-being of, society.  Kvery switchman or engineer who will  not obey is a peril to tho travelling public. The man who persists in disobeying  the laws of his nrind nnd his body is  on tho way to the insane asylum. If  ���������we are disobedient to natural law wo  Xnay escape with slight penalty.

It is favorable to the suf-  iragc amendment that this great body is  absolutely impervious  to   the influences  -which-in-ttll-States-but-two hare-accomplished  the   defeat of  every  bn*>  which  has been submitted to the eleclors. Ths  Grange  from  its foundation  has  recognized  the equal rights nf women.      At  its last national convention, a few weeks  ago, it passed a ringing  resolution  demanding the  franchise    for  lhem.      In  Maine the women nre preparing to ask  the   Legislaturet for   suffrage   for   tax-  paying women. "' The State Grange lias  34,000   members   and   is   the  largest  in  the United States.     At the State meeting on Dec. 17 over 1,000 delegates, unanimously, by a rising vote, adopted a  strong   resolution   for   the   passage   of  this bill.     Women now have no form oi  suffrage in Maine.     In 1S87 a bill for a,  full suffrage amendment received a majority vote of both Houses of the Legislature,  but  not  the    necessary    two-  thirds.      Several  times  since  a  similar  bill has passed one or tbe other branch.  Very few States have more liberal laws  for women.     It is one of tho nine whicli  give  fathers   and   mothers  equal guardianship of children.      Women are .eligible as Justices of the Peace, registers  of prmbate aud deputy town clerks. They  are serving as trustees and county superintendents of schools and public libraries, trustees and physicians of State institutions,  etc.      There  is   little  doubt  that in the near future they will bava  not only'taxpayers, but full sulfrage.

The man who  heads  the  present attempt to overthrow the Government of  tho  Sultan  of  Morocco   is  reported  to  say   Ihat  he  has not  the  slightest  intention of seizing tho throne.    His mission,  he says,  is  to  wage  a  holy war  against Christians, keep Europeans out  of Morocco and remove lhe present Sultan from  the throne on account of hia  tendency to  listen  to  European  advice  and yield to foreign influence.    He says  that  he and  his  followers  will  nominate a Sullan from some Shcreefian family  who  will  promise  lo  continue    the  war against the Christians.    According  to  lhe correspondent    of The    Loudon  Times, Mr. W. B. Harris, who recently  "got away from Fez,  just in  time," in  his  own  words,   the    rcbeU    are  very  strong in numbers.    The rebellion is an  expression   of   total  disseut    from   and  rcprobaliou    of     the   Sultan's -   recent  scheme  of   reforms.     Mr.   Harris,   who  had    many    interviews with Morocco's  young ruler last year, and who is credited with being "the Sultan's confidential adviser, reports that he as wholly  unlike   other" Oriental ���������  potentates    in  thoughts; habits aud manner of life. "He  is keenly* sensitive to public opinion in  Europe; is ��������� interested in educational systems abroad and in'.the workings of con-  stilutionai government; and  is 'anxious  to keep on good terms with the powers,"  Mr.'Harris says.    The Sultan told Mr.  Harris that as soon as his Government  was better organized he hoped to travel  abroad and learn what he could.for tlie  benefit of his country.    To reform Morocco, to* introduce modern and liberal  ideas  into .its  system  of    government,  may,     however,     require    genius    and  strength beyond the powers of the young  ruler.    In 188*1 Dr.-Oscar Lenz, one of  the. most acute  observers of affairs  in  Morocco, .wrote that though the father  of  the  present Sultan had liberal  tendencies and was a man of independent  and  energetic character, as well "as an  autocrat, he was not in  a position  to  introduce revolutionary reforms against  the will' of the official class.     The fanatical party was too strong .both in the  country  und at  court  to  be forced   to  submit to drastic measures of reform.  -    When  the late Sultan's.son came  to  the throne in  ISOf" he was a mere boy  of fourteen.     During  his minority  Sid  Ahmed,   the  Grand ��������� Vizier  of- Morocco,  ruled the  country,with  the  iron  hand  of an  absolute  despot. -  He    held  the  country together, quelled rebellions and  subdued disorderly tribes with  the  utmost cruelty and" at -the same time by  wholesale confiscation and enormous exactions amassed a great  fortune. -Two  years ago the young Sultan reached the  age of. twenty and just as he assumed  control" lhe stern old regent died.    The  report that the old' man left  his great  fortune  to the: new-Sultan  is  probably  incorrect.   At any rate, it is known th-it  the Sultan's finances have been in a bad  wa v,  and that since he. came in to att-  ual   power   he.has   raised "considerable  All kinds of early crops that are to  be grown from seed in lhe spring may  be hastened by starting lhem in a hotbed.

Weaning a Colt Properly.  An inquirer asks the best way to wean  a colt. I will not try to give that, but  will give a good method. The change  should be gradual. First, the colt should  be handled when running with the maro,  and be made docile and familiar with  the caresses of man. It should be educated to the halter, and, if the mother is  worked on the farm, it is a lesson to tha  colt to tie it by the" side of the mother  a portion, of the time, and let it jog  along by her side when she is hauling  the waggon, or even, the plough or  reaper. It is an education the colt will  have to receive some time in life, and if  given young, the better.1' It will be accustomed to the rattling of waggons and  machinery behind it, and learn to start  and stop at the word. If thus treated  the weaning is a simple thing.  When it is desired to wean it put it in  a stall adjoining that of the mother,  either tied by the head, or partitioned  off, so it cannot reach the teat of the  mother. The first day allow it to nurso  morning and night only, milking tho  mother out at noon if giving a good  flow of milk. The next day allow it to  nurse in the morning, and, before nursing at night, strip out the mare quite  well before it is let to nurse her. Tha  next morning strip out in part, nnd so  continue to strip out before nursing,  and in from four to eight days the mara  will be dry and the colt weaned.* While  with the mare it will learn to eat oats  with her, and should have bats and bran  now, to take the place of milk. There  is far more danger of farmers feeding  too few thau too many oats, and loo  much bran, to a -weaning colt duriug ils  first winter. A pound of the mixed oals  and bran mixed equally to every hundredweight of colt is about right; that  is to say, a 500-pound colt should in  three feeds daily receive five pounds of  the mixed grain'feed, and what fine mixed hay it will eat up in an hour's time.  JChat_is plenty of roughage.  "'.  The coIt"^i6^uld-have^>"xc7cisd"ic\Te~ry~  dny; a good; warm stable to sleep in, or  shed to run under, and a field or yard  lo run in, make the idenl. Uul it should  not be turned out in a storm and made  lo stay out. Allow if. to do as it please*!,  regarding this. A coll weaned and so  carried through lhe first'winter of ils  life is moro of a horse at three years old  than at four if stunted at weaning and  half fed during the first winter- Jn  fact, thc destiny of the colt's life is often fixed nt weaning lime alone, when  turned out to grub for a'living on somo  frostbitten pasture, lo stamp flies, to  worry and become poor, lt may outgrow it, but the chances aro much  against it.

To gain ���������ldmUiinn tu l *ii*  compressed   air    chamber    a   gang    ol  woikmcti enters the air luck by Lhe outer door.     This door U  Iheu clo������ed and  compressed  air  is  introduced  inlo   Lhe  air   lock   lill  the  pressuro   is  the  same  as in the chamber beyond.    When that  stage is reached the inside door can bo  opened and the workmen pass into    the  chamber.     A reverse    process    enables  thom to return again to the   outer air.  In  the  case  of   this  tuiuicl   there   tiro  two air locks  1,500  feet apart.   In  tho  flrst the normal atmospheric pressure ol  fifteen  pounds  to  the square    inch    is  raised to twenty "or twenty-two pounds,  the pressuro in the middle chamber beyond.    Fifteen hundred feel further into  tho   tunnel   is  a  strong   bulkhead  containing u second lock.    In Ibis the pressure  is raised to thirty  pounds io  the  square  inch  or more,  according to   tho  need   in   the  working  chamber  on   tho  other side, thai in which is lhe  shield  and tho head of the lunnel.    Tho limit  of  endurance  is   fifty    pounds    lo   tho  square  inch.     Only men who  are  physically sound and slrielly temperate can  work in these compressed air chambers.  It appears  that  they  must  be careful  nbout coming out in too great a  Hurry  into normal pressure aguin or tiic.s  sutler a serious and sometimes a fatal attack known as tho   "bends,"    to which  workers in compressed air are subject.  There is a rule that on coming out of  the inner chamber,   the workers    must  stay  ir.  each nir  lock  for several  minutes to enable lhem to become used to  the  reduced  pressure.     11  is  lo  aecus  torn   the   men   to  the change  that   Lhe  two air locks are placed 1,500 fcot apart  in the lunnel, for il insures, in pari at  least, a gradual transition���������but the man  who breaks the rule and hurries through  the air locks in five cases out of ten will  bo stricken with the disease.    The victim does not feel the effects lill he gets  through  the last lock and into normal  pressure.     Then    ho    is    seized    with  cramps.    His knees, his elbows, in fact.,  every joint in his body, is affected and  he suffers excruciating' pain. - There is  only one means of relief and that is to  put him again under heavy pressure and  after  he  recovers gradually to reduce  the  pressure again.     If   this  relief  is  not at hand the attack may be fatal,  as it was to a man who was stricken  in Canal street a few weeks ago."   This  has led to the establishment of a compressed air hospital at the top of Ilia  shaft.    This is nothing more than a big  steel boiler twenty feet long and eight  feet in diameter. It is divided into two  compartments,   in  each   of   which   is   a  bench, and is fitted with airtight doors,  electric lights and valve attached to the  compressed air engine.   A workman suffering witb/the "bends" is carried up tho  shaft into this hospital and laid on the  bench.     Then   tho   door   is  closed  und  tho  compressed  air    pump    raises   the  pressure within.    An air goiage nn the  door shows what the pressure is.     As  it  rises  to  the  limit  in   which  he  has  been working, the man's rigid limbs relax  and-his   pains   subside.       After  a  whilo  the  pressure  is gradually  reduced, a physician meanwhile watching tho  man carefully, and he can soon be taken  into the outer air again.    But he vtay  feel the effects of the attack for weeks.  !e Offered Hes-  His Heart.  'But do vou take Dr  Agnew's Cur**? If not. you  know, I couldn't risk accepting  it." she said.  Sho is wise.

He was ac-  quilted on.tho ground of insanity, and  ordered to be confined as a criminal lunatic at'Broadmoor Asylum "during her  "Majesty's pleasuro." The indictment  against liim was for high treason, which  must not bo confounded with the -so-  called "treason felony" for which tho  Fenian dynamiters were sentenced to  penal servitude for life in 1SS7. Previous co the case of .Mnci.ean there was  that of William Smith OMirien, M.P,  who was tried for high treason in September, 1S4S, at Clonmel, in Ireland,  found guilty of tho charge and sentenced by the Lord Chief Justice to be hanged, afterward beheaded and then quartered. The Queen, however, commuted  this terrible sentence passed upon the  leader of the sanguinary encounter between the insurgents and "the police,  known as the Uailingarry affray, to one  of penal servitude for" life, and" some fifteen years later he had been deported.  Some eight years earlier the Chartist  leader Frost was indicted for high treason, but had the capital sentence pronounced against him commuted and was  afterward  pardoned.      indeed,  the  last        ���������.  cases of execution for high.treason we're conimItted"bv' dishonest YitsTran^e'con-  those of the so-called Cato street conspirators in the year 1S20, who, it may  be remembered, were arrested when  about to murder the members of tha  .Cabinet, a crime which was to be followed by the assassination of King Geor"e.
