A.  ��������� - Bradley���������Paying   Proposition  -" in Ninety Days.  The recent visit* of _ fr. E. A. Bradley  to tiro eastern states resulted in very  important developments in Uie mining history of the Big Bend. As a  result of his trip he has acquired for a  syndicate of Eastern capita lists  practically the whole placer grounds  on French creek. The company which  is being formed will bo a close corporation and no stock will be placed on  the market.  One of thc claims acquired, the  Consolation, wa.s well known in the  ���������early history of the creek, and even  with the surface scratching of lire old  time miners produced an enormous  amount of gold. Mr. Bradley, before  making the purchase, exlensively  prospected the properties just acquired,  and figures on having the claims on a  paying basis within tiro rroxt ninety,  days. lie left on Tuesday morning  with five or six tons of supplies and a  party of men, to engage in the pro-  liurinary work, and the force, will be (  largely   increased   as    soon   ns    tho  John Sweeny who has been identified  with the district in question for over*  twelve years.  The property will be mined by the  drifting process, and the previous results in coarse gold, which were inspected at the time by a representative  of the Herald, warrant the supposition that not only will Mr.  Bradley's hope of quick returns prove  justified but thc properties in question  develop into large dividend payers.  Mr. Bradley has.-inore than any man  in the province, shown faith in placer  possibilities in the Big Bend and  deserves thc success in his ventures  which we are assured awaits him.  Sirrce the above was written the  unfortunate stoppage of navigation  occurred and Mr. Bradley has lx-en  compelled to postpone his trip until  the Kevelstoke carr get through the  canyon.

TATLOW, President Ex_cutiv_ Council, Victoria.  ���������Dear Captain Tatlow.���������As under the circumstances it is impossible for nre to make an official  statement in the House, 1 am handing you this letter that you may read it for the purpose of acquainting  the members of the Legislature of the position of affairs.  After- most careful consideration and in view of the anticipated dissolution of Parliament, I have  full}* decided that the interests of the country would best be served by a division on party lines. Personally I have always favored this*, course, and 1 feel sure'that the electorate as a whole is desirous that local  affairs ill the province should be so administered.  The government to be formed will be Conservative in character-, arrd after dissolution it i.s the  intention to make an appeal to the country at the earliest possible moment. In the preparation of the  voters' list and irr all other- matters pertaining to the forthcoming elections, everything will be done to  permifof public opinion having the fullest and fairest'expression at the polls.  ��������� Had Parliament continued to the expiry of its legal existence, a composite government would have  been formed, arrd 1 cannot allow this occasion to pass without placing on record my appreciation of the  valued co-operation of the Liberals who were my colleagues in the opposition ranks. They are entitled to,  arrd have, my war-most thanks; and under other circumstances than those to which I have alluded,!,  should have had much pleasure in recognizing their services by a proportion of seats in the Cabinet.

Victoria,   June  3.���������The   hopes  of  those who expected that Hon. Richard  McBride would form a coalition cabinet have been blasted at the ouUet.  The new Premier who, by virtue of his  access.on to office, cannot sit in the  House until re-elected has made a'  clear cut statement of his position.  Hon. R. G.

R.- G. Tatlow,  introduced the following motion: -  ���������  "That in order to facilitate a speedy  agreement upon the estimates, it is  hereby resolved that the.folIoYving be  a committee to revise the* same:���������  Messrs. Sernlin, Fulton,- Kidd,-Pater-  son, Tatlow, Mclnnes, Hall, Clifford,  Houston and Ellison.''  This was objected to by Joseph  Martin, Gilraour and others but was  finally passed by the substantial majority of' 30 for and' 4 against. The  dissentients .were Martin, Gilmour,  Rogers and Neill.  Mr. McBride has all along been  acting with the full concurrence of  Charles Wilson, K.C, tlie Conservative leader, and the latter will be  included in the cabinet which will be  formed immediately after dissolution.  It is not expected that any further  ministers will be selected during tde  few days that will elapse before the  Hon c rises. The Conservatives are  staying loyally with the new Premier  and harmony has been restored in the  Legislature.  I have, from a very reliable source,  the following slate  of who will   form  the new cabinet and it is probably a  close estimate.  Premier and Chief Commissioner���������  Hon._Hichard-McBride.

Council were published in a  extra late yesterday.  'Gazette'  Hon. Richard McBride is the first  native son of British Columbia to  ascend to the high position of Premier  of the Province. He was also the first  to attain to cabinet rank when on  June 21st, 1900, he accepted the portfolio of Minister of Mines, lesigning it  on Sept. 3, 1001, when Dunsmuir's  alliance with Martinisur was made  known by his taking J. C. Brown into  the cabinet. Mr. McBride thereupon  became the leader of the Opposition  and succeeded in securing the defeat  of Mr. Brown.  Mr. McBride was born in New Westminster on December 15th, 1870, and  educated at Lome College, Sapper-ton,  the local public schools and D-Ohousie  University, Halifax, N.

Mr. Bland in conversation with  the Herald yesterday stated that he  had heard a great deal of the free  milling gold of the Fish River, and  has kept in close touch with the news  of the camp and decided to come here  and investigate from personal observation. Mr. Pool states that he had a  most successful trip from a mining  standpoint and with the faith which  his former succe.s-.es in mining has  given him he returns assured that  there is no richer or better- camp on  the continent than the one in which  he and his associates are so largely  interested.

The fli-t report of hydraulic ruining  operations in the Big Bend this _e_-on  was brought to the city orr Friday  evening by Mr-. J. D.-Sibbald. manager  of the -IcCulIough Creek Hydraulic  Mining Company operating on the  creek mentioned. The company holds  five creek.claims, aggregating 2j miles  in length and has applications pending  for- two more when  the total length1  pipe line which  it i.s lielieved will lie  I placer] and in operation by July 1st.  Some small amount of gravel was  washed into the flume by ground  sli'icing for two or three days and a  pn-r-h of Ix-drock .*il)oiit 15 feet square  uncovered. Mv. Sibbald, with two of  the men, went over this piece of bedrock and irr eight hours picked up  between three and four ounces of  coai-se gold, the total value lieing  alxiutSTO. The largest nugget found  by Mr-. Sibbald weighed nearly three-  rjuarters of an ounce and is valued at  about S12.7.'>: several other pieces ran  from S-i to S7. Taking this into consideration, it is reasonable to suppose  that there is about 100 oz. in the flume'  but this will not be known until a  clean up is made. The prospects of  this company arc therefore very bright  and the shareholder's are awaiting  with interest the installation of the  plant. The season's operations are  only in the nature of fully proving  the value of .the ground, and if  the  two more when _  will be 34 miles.

Pilate's question is the yawn of a  tire;! agnostici-m which has encountered the counterfeits of virtue until it  doubts thc rcaiity oi righteousness. Its  conclusions *_-:*i*k the point where the  brain grew woary of thinking about the j  facts of liie. I 'hough its conclusions  be worthless, i:s iacts arc interesting  and valuable. It is as well to realize  that every virt;:e has its sham as it is  to know that each coin of our currency  has its counterfeit. But it is as foolish  to doubt thc genuineness of all virtue  because of these shams as it would be  to declare all coins worthless because  of their countcricits. Truth can only  be represented. lis forms of expression arc innumerable. It can be sung  ���������*-��������� In a song, told in a poem, painted in  a picture, represented in an act. And  In just as many ways a He can be told.  iWherever there is the necessity of representation there is the possibility of  * misrepresentation. Nothing is gained  by shutting our eyes to the fact of  counterfeit virtues. They are in the  world, and it is far better to know them  '- than to ignore them.   They are in the  * -world because they are more easily acquired than the genuine. As long as it  costs less.to seem to be than to be the  world -will be* cursed with counterfeit  righteousness. Bluster is cheaper than  bravery, talk costs lets than genuine  liberality or unselfishness, fake frankness is less expensive than straightforward sincerity, and modest phrases  can be made oi a baser metal than the  fine gold of true humility. It is wisdom to recognize all'this '  Nor is there anything to be gained  by ignoring the    danger    of counterfeits.    To depend  upon the frankness  oi a friend and find that he is, after all,  only a past master, in tlie art of flattery  is a threat to the peace and happiness  01 life,   li you ;ne in no way prepared  for  such  shock.-.,  before you know it  you are saying, m    the    bitterness of  some crusmng .-disappointment,.- '"All  men arc liar's.'*'; Orcatcr than the menace of being tii*.* victim of some piclis-  xic counteneitei ia the danger of being  ourselves count.i.citers.v, Sp subtle are  the temptations ;u traffic in the nefarious business that none of us is entirely  - safe.    It is  so easy to get: credit .for  virtue without paying the price which  - virtue always coils. A superficial view  oi life reveals how easy it is to "fool  all of the people a part of the time,"  but a better vi.-.ion assures us that the  rest of Mr. .Lincoln's quaint aphorism  is equally true. An unctuous manner,  a long face and a convenient tremolo  _*top ;o the..organ pi speech have been  "- sore temptations to men in. very age,  ���������and have oiten arrested and given i$-  -���������aoble satisfaction to noble ambitions.  ,   The; wisdom'oi admitting the fact of  - .counterfeit virtues and recognizing the  "-���������flu-eat-which 'this /act   holds   against  * the peace and happiness of life    sug-  gests tbe further wisdom of (testing all  .. .virtue.   The spiritual counterfeiter has  ��������� _oine of tlie same limitations *t������hich circumscribe the ruanDwho deals in bad  -���������money.   His profits depend upon keeping his counterfeits in circulation.   He  must paira than off on somebody or  they are of no use to him.   We do well  "to -suspect the man who is always teli-  --TBg us of his virtues.   If he intimates  -f$0- often how frank he is, we will be on  "-__��������������� guard  to   repel  duplicity,    li  he  snakes a paraae of    his honesty, our  ___nds will instinctively be    upon our  -pocketbooks.   A tropical luxuriousnes!  oi profession will make us suspect an  arctic barrenness of practice.    We will  -be constrained  to    quote    Emerson's  -words, "What you are thunders so loud  -that I cannot near what you say."   We  seed more especially to note this sign  -���������oi a counterfeit  within ourselves,    li  ���������we feel impelled to talk of any of our  '-    ���������^irtues^we-"fna;.=iibe<juite--sure--tnaF-the>--  ���������_xe not genuine.   Genuine virtues need  -no advertisement.      They enrich their  'possessor    regardless    of recognition.  The counterfeiter must choose nis op*  portunity ior passing his bad coins. An  uncertain  light  is   to  his   liking.    Tne  counterfeit virtue is tendered on propitious   occasions.      It    is  dependent  upon certain moods and. external con-  ditions.     After-dinner   charity is   c nly  a counterfeit  of the  genuine    charity  ���������which "never  faileth,"   which   "sulfer-  eth long," which "is not impulsive, is  sot puffed up."      Virtue  which  need!  the environment of stained glass win-  _k>ws and the accompaniment of organ  _Bosic is apt to be but a worthless imitation of that which can stand the sun-  "Sight and  which  rings  true  amid  tha  _-_i_si->n of tiic busy parts of trade.  But, after all, the infallible  test of  __ry virtue is    to compare it with that  ���������which wc know is genuine.    God has  .given us    a standard   of comparison.  Jesus oi  Nazareth is    God's    plea ol  genuine manhood.    Pilate had the answer to his question if he could only  "have understood Him into whose face  he looked.   Jesus spoke no word in re- j  ���������ply.    There  was no    need    of  words. |  Jesus .Himself was the answer.    Here  was a union ot God and man, without  ���������which there can be no    genuine,  un-1  alloyed righteousness.    Here was One  ���������who served man, but received His re-:  ward  from   GocL     Man   gave  Him   a I  cross,  God  gave    Him    His    crown, j  "What is truth t" To dwell among men, j  living our lives as unto God and nol  onto men.

An announcement inserted by a jilted  swain whose lady-love eloped with  Chou Ling, closes with these heartfelt  words:  "I cannot control my wrath nnd blt-  torneee. My loved one has, It Is plain,  been enticed away by this rascal's deceit. How, I wonder, can a mere  tailor's dummy like this succeed iu  winning her?

A mother writes to a son who has  run away from home:  "'K you delay longer and do not ro������  turn, I cannot bear lt, and shall most  surely seek an end to my life, and then  you will stand in peril ot death by  thunder.

I ousht to say that  the boy was altogether unacquainted  with Shanghai and the character of the  people, and I presume ho has been decoyed away by rascals for somo bad  purpose.

The easiest and best way to des-  froy all kinds of weeds is when they  ire just beginning to appear above  ground, as even a slight stirring of the  loil will then seriously cripple lhem in  frowth or destroy them. If weeds arc  >ermittcd to grow, however, they make  sxccllent green material for ploughing  mder, but while they may nearly reach  naturity before being thus utilized,  indcr no circumstances must they be  permitted to produce seed. If no  weeds arc allowed to scatter seeds it  will be but a few years before thc farm  vill be entirely clear of them. It will  >ay the farmer, however, to keep weeds  lown by stirring the top soil when the  weeds arc young.  Cutting Seed Potatoes.  The results of several experiments  :onducted within thc past few years  iliow that cut potatoes have a marked influence upon the crop produced.  Large pieces of seed cut from the best  marketable potatoes produce greater  ���������fields and better quality than small un-  :ut potatoes. It has been round that  Stood potatoes cut into pieces of about  1 ounces in weight gave very satisfactory results, when thc amount of  seed used, as well as thc yield of potatoes produced, were both taken into  ���������onsiucration.  As the result of an experiment conducted for three years rn succession,  In planting -one, two, and four pieces  of potatoes in the same place, and by  wing the same weight of seed in  rvery case, it has been found that larger yields and better satisfaction have  teen obtained where only one piece  was planted in each place. The cutting of a potato tends to increase the  tumber of stems produced, and when  from two to four small potato sets are  planted in one place, there is a greater  tumber of stems produced than when  ���������me,good piece is used. A few large,  rigorous stems appear to give better  results in both yield and quality of  potatoes than a large number of small  weakly stems.  An experiment has been conducted  lor seven years in succession in cut-  ling potatoes and planting them on the  lame day, as compared with cutting  potatoes from four to five days previ-  }us to planting It has been found  that the potatoes which were cut and  planted on the same day gave upwards  of six bushels per acre per annum  more than those_ which were cut and  illowed to remain a few days before  ;h<!y were planted. Experiments very  :learly demonstrate the great import-  ince of planting potatoes immediately  ifter they "are cut.���������Farmer and Stock-  Breeder, London, England.  A Remarkable r-ciiot.  .There is a parrot now for sale in a  New York bird store for which the  owner wants a thousand dollars. Thc  bird, it is said, shows unmistakable  evidence of doing its own thinking. A  maid who taught it some of its words  entered the room where it was one day  and had an attack of coughing, whereupon Commander, the parrot, remarked :  "Well, Annie, that's a bad cold you've  got"  Scolded by its owner a short time  ago for throwing scraps of food on the  floor. Commander said :  "I didn't do that; it w������s Dick."  ' Dick is a canary, that occupies thc  next cage to Commander. Whenever  Commander docs anything that should  bring censure it tries to blame Dick.  Commander's owner says that it is constantly coming out with new remarks,  which show that it is a thinking bird.  Commander is very much interested  in the telephone, and one of its favorite amusements is to imitate with remarkable exactness the bell of a telephone, and then proceed to hold a conversation with some imaginary person.  It always ends this conversation by  making an engagement to meet thc  person downtown. If any one speaks  during one of these imaginary conversations it will say :  "Hush 1 Don't you sec I'm talking  over the telephone ?"  Commander has many other interesting tricks. It will imitate thc popping  of champagne corks, will bark at its  owner's dog until thc dog is in a rage  and will howl at thc cat until its patience is exhausted.  According to the owner of these  birds their training is the result! of the  hardest kind of work, and must be conducted along thc same lines that a  child's training is. They are brought  here from Africa. To be of any use  they must be taken from the nests  when babies. When the babies get  here they are generally a few months  old. Nevertheless they are worth from  $15 to $20 apiece. It takes from four  to six years to complete the training.  Commander is six years old. He will  probably live to be 75.  The first thing taught the baby parrots is the alphabet. Then they are  taught to count. They are taught the  meaning of words, and gradually, according to the trainer, they learn to  think for themselves.  A Lady Tiger-r_iucr.  Mrs. Donnett,   an   American,   who  Is  the wife of  a    British    officer    in  Northern India, has receutly shot the  largest tiger ever killed in India. The  great brute was ten feet eight inches  trom the tip of his nose to the end of  his tail.     Mrs. Donnett had been with  a  party  of  officers   shooting  in    thc  Chanda jungle and had already killed  two tigers, four panthers and other big  game when  the chance  of a lifetime  came to her.      This is how she tells  thc  story :���������"Wc  heard a tiger    hail  killed a lot of deer in a piece of bamboo   jungle  about    six  miles  off,   so  Timmins, my husband, got about forty  beaters together antl wc took up our  positions  near  an   open   space,   while  the beaters went into the jungle with  drums and horns, driving six buffalo in  front  oi    them,   and    made    hideous  noises. After about half an hour, when  thc beat was nearly up to my tree, I  saw what I first took for a deer* gliding  through  thc high  grass and bamboo,  when suddenly an opening revealed a  huge tiger to my astonished gaze. Tic  was going full bat, so I saw it was a  case of then or never, and. although  it was a very blind shot,  I  let blaze  at the vanishing stripes.as they flashed  through the  bamboos.      A  roar  and  rush told me the.monster was hit, V.'Jl  I could see nothing, as thc jungle was  so dense.     When the shikar came up I  told him where  I had fired and  got  down,  and with  loaded  rifles  we  approached  thc  spot   where   about   ten  yards from where I fired lay the very  finest  monster   I   ever   saw,   and   his  great striped Body did, indeed, look like  a slain king of the forest.     Thc shikar  and I all but hugged   in our excitement, and when thc beaters came up  our hurrahs and jubilant,exclamations  brought Timmins  tumbling down  out  of his tree, and his joy and pride quite  touched me. The monster was, indeed,  glorious with his ten feet eigth inches  spread out to their full, his gums rolled up showing his enormous teeth and  his skin in its prime, and, oh, so beautifully yellow and black."  Humor of the Hour.  The new teacher asked of the class  the following question :  "John had five oranges. James gave  him eleven and he gave Peter seven.  How many did he have left ?"  Before this problem the class recoiled.  "Please, sir," said a young lad, "wc  always docs our sums in apples."���������The  Little Chronicle.  Indigestion in Cows.  With the exception of a few cases  due to organic disease, indigestion is,  ss a rule, a consequence of errors* in  diet, too much food or feeding on material of unsuitable quality. In cases  Bf indigestion in the adult bovine, whether there be or be not any marked  engorgement associated with it, special treatment applicable to the case is  desirable. Generally, simple indigestion means loss of cud, with the symptoms that inevitably follow in the train  of cessation of rumination. The distinction between acute and chronic indigestion is bound to be in a large  measure an arbitrary one, but it is  generally found that in chronic cases  there is developed a depraved appetite,  which grows on what it feeds upon.  The animal becomes unthrifty, as denoted by a dry, harsh, staring coat, depraved or irregular appetite, irregular  ind imperfect rumination, a tendency  to tympany���������that is, to become  'blown"���������flatulence, torpidity, or sometimes looseness of the bowels, a "tuck-  ed-up" appearance, and loss of flesh.  Generally the treatment of indigestion  In bovines is quite as much a matter of  giving up as giving of" less food, or a  change of food, as of the administration  ������f medicine. The treatment should  comprise change of diet and of general  surroundings, conditions, and the administration of stimulant tonics and  cordials, after the bowels have been  sleared ont by a brisk saline purge. An  example is: Powdered ginger, 1 or.;  Bicarbonate of potash, 1-2 oz.; Epsom  ���������alts, 13 o*. to 16 oz.; warm ale or  gruel, I quart. After this has acted  give: Powdered mix vomica, 1 drachm;  bicarbonate of soda, powdered gentian,  ginger and calumba root, of each 1-2  ������z.: warm ale, I pint; twice daily. Salt  b known in many cases to promote  digestion in unthrifty ruminants, and a  (ump-of _rock_salt_should __b_. placed  within reach.���������Pateley Bridge  t Wli*-***- Fathar ami Sot, tlo lo Sctm-1.

Dressed Poultry.  The prize poultry at the recent Canadian winter fair was shown' by  Messrs. Woodrow & Sons of Beacons-  field, Ont The turkeys, in particular,  were very heavily meated, plump and  white fleshed. The method of feeding  had much to do with thc result. Mr.  Woodrow feeds for a period of about  five weeks in all a preliminary diet of  whole grain���������corn chiefly���������and chop**���������  oats and corn���������mixed with skim mi]k  to a stiff consistency, and fed in  troughs. A crammer is not used. The  finishing period is one of about twelve  days, and the birds are fed three  times daily, about 10 a.m., 1 p.m., and  again in the evening. No hard grain  Is used in the finishing, but a mixture  of oats and barley, not more than  quarter of the latter, ground fine and  sifted as the end approaches, mixed  with skim milk, soft enough to eat  freely, constitutes the cliief diet. Tf  the bird shows signs of getting off  feed, a breakfast of hot roasted corn  lis fed, whole. The night feed is tal-  iow, in thc rough. This tallow is fed  I crumbled, and about a handful to each  ! bird. This insures the bright, light-  ! colored flesh that is so desired. Mr.  j Woodrow says that when no tallow is  fed, thc meat being a bright yellow,  the price is reduced about two cents  i per pound. The birds are allowed  out on the ground in the yards during  the day and driven into sheds or pens  j at nights, without roosts, but straw-  ' floored. Thc spring hen turkeys weighed about sixteen to seventeen pounds,  and thc gobblers twenty pounds. The  starving and killing Mr. Woodrow considers most imporlant matters. The  birds are always starved a full forty-  fight hours before killing.  An Early and Uniform Moult.  When a specialty is made of producing winter eggs it is of much importance to have the hens shcd.thcir feath-  :rs early in the fall, so that the new  plumage may be growrr before cold  weather begins. Tn case moulting is  much delayed the production of a new  :oat of feathers rn cold weather is  such a drain on the vitality oi thc  iowls that few if any eggs are produced until spring, while if the moult takes  place early in the season the fowls begin winter in good condition, and with  proper housing and feeding may be  made to lay during the entire winter.  A few years ago Mr. Henry Van  Dreser proposed a way whereby fowls  may be caused to moult as early in  the fall as is desirable. Briefly this  method consists in withholding food  either wholly or in part, for a few  days, which stops epc* nroduction and  reduces the weight of the fowls, and |  then feeding heavily on a ration suit-  iblc for the formation of the weathers  and the general building up* of the system.  The experiment designed to study  this method was begun August 5, 1902,  with two pens of Rhode Island Reds  ind two pens of White Leghorns,  ibout two years old. One pen each  af Rhodo Island Reds and White  Leghorns received no food for  thirteen days except what they  :ouId pick up in their runs,  which had been sown to oats in  die spring. These runs were fifteen  leet wide and one hundred feet long,  ind nearly all of thfe oats had been  picked from the heads before the beginning of the experiment. The other  two lots of fowls were fed as Usual on  mash, beef scraps, corn, wheat and  >au. After the expiration of the thir-  :cen days all four lots of fowls were  led liberally. Each lot of fowls confined twenty hens and two cocks.  The following table shows the number of eggs produced during the first  thirty days after the beginning of thc  ���������est :  Lot 1���������Rhode Island Reds ; fed continuously ; produced 75 eggs.  ���������Lot 2���������Rhode Tsland-Rcds-;-no-food;-  ���������iroduced 17 eggs.  Lot 3���������White Leghorns ; fed continuously ;   produced 172 eggs.  .  Lot 4���������White Leghorns ; no food ;  produced 25 eggs.  Lots 2 and 4 ceased laying entirelx  Dn the seventh day of the test.  Thirty days after thc test began the  "no food" nen of Rhode Island Reds  had practically a complete coat of new  feathers, had begun to lay, and withit.  1 week from that time one-half'of the  hens were laying regularly, while the  other lot of Rhode Island Reds were  iust beginning to moult, and the egg  production had dropped down t.o two  or three eggs per day. Both" lots"oj  White Leghorns were a trifle slower  in moulting than the Rhode Island  Reds, but otherwise the treatment affected them in a similar way.���������West  Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station BullctinNoJ83-____*_  An ingenious young man once took  his fiancee to church in a small conn-;  try village, and when the time for '.'collection" came around he rather ostentatiously displayed a sovereign.

Russia, says The Illustrated London  News, has produced a marvellous city  in the wilds of the far cast, and has  made it possible for thc terminus of  her gigantic Asiatic railway system to  assume at once a commercial importance. M. de Witte, by an expenditure  of over ������4,000,000, has succeeded in  constructing a town capable of housing  100,000 people, and has done this before any of the permanent inhabitants  have arrived. It was only after all the  scheme had been worked out that any  plots of land were put up to auction  for the general public. Dalny is to be  a free port open to thc merchants of  all nations; indeed, the Russians ex-'  pect that the town will be populated  rather by foreign merchants than by  Russian, since the latter can not compete openly with rivals prepared,, to  work for a return of 5 or. 10 per cent.  The town lies on thc shores of Talien-  ���������van Bay, and, following out M. de  Witte's idea, is .equipped with every  necessity of a modern port and city.'  There are jetties and breakwaters  alongside which vessels drawing thirty  feet of water can unload into the  trains from Moscow and St Petersburg. On the larger jetties will be  warehouses; there are two dry docks,  one 350 feet long and the other 700.  feet The sea frontages are all faced  with specially prepared concrete  blocks. In the city itself are roads,  electric lights, electric trams, drainage,  gardens, and parks; while the municipal buildings, in which form a centre  of the foreign "members of the Council  will sit, is the commercial town. The  Chinese .town lies at some distance,  ind the official town clusters around  Ihe docks and jetties. The bay of  Talienwan is an ice-free harbor; thus  there is no necessity for the suspension of trade during the winter, as is  the case in the other Manchurian port  of Newchwang.

"As for his wanting your money," he  said, when ho had recovered his gravity  a little, "it's very natural. Everybody  wants money.   1 want it myself."  "Do you?" said Norma with interest.  "Now it's about the only thing I don't  want.

Astley looked at her v,ith interest.  These vague longrngs excited his sympathy; they betokened something more  than mere restlessness, the generous- de-  Bires of a noble, kindly spirit. He gave  her a quick look, nnd a little nod of intelligence and sympathy.  "I see," said he. "But can't you man-  ago it? Can't you get away? Haven't  jou any other relations, or friends, who'd  help you?"  Norma answered by a slight but depressed shake of thc head.  '. "Not one," said slie, in a low voice.  "I'm   tied,  bound  hand   and   foot.    Of  - course," she went on, with eager interest, delighted to have a. sympathetic listener, "1 could insist on going away if I*  liked, and on having my allowance paid  me, and I could go ,t������ London, and join  some sisterhood, or do something like  that. But though I'm so self-willed, I'm  timid too, and I don't like to dare the  opening. Do you sec? I'm so ignorant  that I should make mistakes, and do the  wrong things, more harm than good, as  so many people do, wno want to do'the  right thing, but don't know the world  well enough .to begin."  - ���������    Astley was by tins time deeply inter-  _sted in thc mingled innocence and good  sense which the young girl showed. He  was going to put a lurther question to  her, on the subject vital to her thoughts.  -when,   as  she   hud   prophesied,   Robert  Bascot came fussily across the room to  them, and carried her oil* to the piano,  to play-for one of the old.ladies.  - Thc girl  exchanged  vi ith  Astley one  " significant look, and went away like a  .. lamb. m  He got no further chance of sneaking  to her that evening, but from that time  he frequently called at tho house, cither  hy himself or with Jack Fielding, taking  care-always not to ruffle Robert~Bascot'3  susceptibilities further. Indeed, that enthusiastic collector of postage stamps  gave' him no cliarrce of another .tete-a-  tete with his well dowered cousin, so  that the first occasion on which these  two strangely acquainted persons were  able to exchange urry words except of a  trivial kind was when thpy met by  chance one day while he was strolling  along under the leafless trees in Addison's Walk.  Her greeting was abrupt and impulsive.  "I've "been thinking of you," she said  ln a low, breathless voice, "and wondering whether you'd help mc!"  "I'll help you in any way I can, I'm  sure," said Astley heartily, conscious,  liko the good fellow he was, of quite a  pleasure in thc possibility of doing a  --good -turn-for-llie-unhappy-and-oddly  attractive girl.  "But not this, I'm afraid. I hardly"  like to suggest it," said she, with sudden hesitancy, which yet was not ordinary shyness. "You hate the thought of  marriage, don't you? You don't approve of it? You would never want to  marry, you are sure?"  "Jlost heartily and certainly sure,"  said Astley, Iris sun-browned skin growing redder, so earnestly did he speak.  "If you had to marry, in fact, there's  nothing you wouldn't do to bo rid of the  society of your wife?" pursued Norma,  with a sudden flush overspreading her  usually pale face.  "Certainly." And feeling like that, why  ehould I marry at all?" said Astley, naturally enough.  "Would you do it���������would you marry a  girl, not really, but at a registry oflice.  for her sake, to set,her free?"  "Good Heavens, Jliss Bascot, you must  be dreaming!" cried Astley, with his eyes  starting out of his head.  "Dreaming 1 Do I look like it?" said  she simply, as she gazed steadfastly into  his face, her great black eye's gleaming  with excitement, her lips parted, her  bosom heaving, and the ever-deepening  flush rising to thc dark hair above her  brow. ,   , 't  CHAPTER IV.  'Astley Darwcn, though he was not yet  seven and twenty, had knocked about  tho world, and seen something of life,  both in pence and war, and at home and  abroad. But never hud it occurred to  him before to nrcct with a* girl like this  one, who was both shy and bold, innocent and yet shrewd, at the same time.  Never before, cither, hnd it .happened to  him to have an offer of marriage mado  to him by a lady, and the conjunction of  such singular circumstances went nigh  to, overwhelming him.  Norma guessed something of what wns  passing in his mind, and the blush which  nad rapidly overspread her faco suddenly died away.  "You're disgusted with mc, of course,"  said she, biting her lip, and turning nway  he? head, whilo her eyes filled with tears.  Astley answered her quickly, with a  warmth and kiirdncss thoro was rro mistaking.  "Indeed I'm not. Tho fooling uppermost in mc nt this moment is the nrost  interr.se sympathy for you, the strongest  wish to be of use to you. I'm only wondering what I can do. What you suggest wouldn't do anything but plunge  you into frc-h troubles."  "I supposi* I was mad to suggest it,"  mumbled Norma, "but it would have set  mo free. And as you're .always protesting  you would never marry any woman, and  complaining of your poverty at thc samo  lime, why 1 thought you might help mc,  and let mc help you at the same time.  For we would have gone shares in what  I have, and I should have been grateful  to you to my life's end."  Astley felt a natural difiiculty in rcal-  feing the intense force of passionate feeling "in this girl, which made her so unable to face common accidents of life  squurcly and sanely. That she should  have attempted suicide; that she should  now suggest the maddest of mad expedients, merely to free herself from the society of uncongenial companions, did indeed suggest a nature so out of tire common run that to suppose her mad would  have been a pardonable assumption.  But, pardonable as it would luivo been,  Astley did not fall into this mistake.  Knowing what he did of her parerrtage.  appreciating too the constant irritation  which the restraints of her uncongenial  life put upon her, and the steady determination with which all the members of  the Bascot family pursued their intention of forcing her into an ill-assorted  marriage, he saw that her desperation  was not thc result of insanity, but o������  ignorance. This girl, brought' up in ":*.  convent school abroad, and accustomed  to hear of marring*-��������� arranged on business principles only, d hit upon a w iy  out of her rniscrv, v .hout realizing tho  fresh difficulties to **������ -rich thc course she  proposed would give rise.  It was not easy to put the matter in  a right light.  "Don't  you   know,", he   said  gently,  when they hnd walked side hy side for  some moments without speaking, "that  there's no sueh thirrg as half-marriage?  "Matrimony contracted -in a rogrslry-of-  fiec is every bit as binding asif the ceremony were performed in a church."  ,> "But it-wouldn't seem the, same!" retorted Norma quickly. ."I could never  feel thnt a mnn to whom I'd only -been  married in an oflice was really my husband."  Astley smiled at her feminine view of  thc matter. - ,  ' "What you would feel 'doesn't matter:  I'm telling you what would be the fact,"  said he. "If I were, some needy arid un-.  scrupulous adventurer���������"*  "Oh!" interrupted Norma with an indignant flash of the eyes.  7,I repeat, if I were some penniless  rascal, ready and eager to profit by your  impatient generosity���������"  "I'm not generous, and you've not an  adventurer, so it's ridiculous to put it  like that."  * . "Will j-ou listen to mc, Miss Bascot,  or will you not?" said Aslioy, wilh half-  serious "peremptorincss.  "I'll listen,".said Norma,-after a moment's pause, submissively enough.   ���������     ,  "If I were to marry you���������" ���������  "At n registry .oflice," put in Norma.  "At a registry oflice or anywhere else,  vou would be legally mv wife, and therefore you would "he prcc'.u led from mar  rying" anybody else as long as ,1 lived.  You  never   seem   to   have   thought   of  -that." "   .  "But there's nothing Fnr more determined about than this, that I will never  marry at all," said Norma firmly, "ex-,  eept, as I suggested, as n matter of business, a partnership of convenience. And  it was because you always talked as if  you felt exaclly-as 1 did about this horrid subject of marriage, Hint I ventured  to be so bold as I was, and io suggest ir  to you." "  "Oh, belie e me, I quite understand  that," faaid Astley, who now began te  -flnd-a-sceret-hutidMidpiLni_L������__-ii_ntJn  this most odd discussion. "But I, when  I say that sort of thing, speak from experience, while you are too young to  have had any."  "Oh, no,.I'm not," said Norma gravely  and with deeisiorr. "I know what the  experience, of nry own mother was, and  through her I know of other cases, of  plenty of other cases. And there's nothing I'm nrore strongly resolved upon  than that I'll be my own mistress as long  as I live."  "I wonder you don't go into a convent," suggested Astley.  "I shouldn't be nry own mistress  there," said Norma. "However, we  needn't discuss it any longer. You think  what I said absurd, unwomanly, unconventional, I can see that."  "Unconventional, certainly. But not  unwomanly, and I don't even like to  say absurd. I'm rather touched by thc  confidence you show in me, a confidence  which, I am bound to add, is wholly misplaced." v #J  Norma, who had been walking on besrde  hhn in a state of so much shame-faced  excitement that she had scarcely been  able to subdue her pace to his leisurely  lame gait, stopped and stared at him.  "Mis-placedI" echoed she in surprise.  "Yes,6 3aid Astley with dogged decision. "You take it for granted that,  because I've abjured matrimony, I must  be a hard-headed philosopher, superior to  the ordinary human emotions. But I  tell you I'm nothing of the kind. Supposing I agreed to���������to���������to your idea,  and began with a lofty and noble refusal  to touch a penny ofyour money, as I of  course should do. Why then presently,  when I found out you were spending  (our comfortable little fortune In benefiting thc human race, and in other species of what the mere man calls tomfoolery���������you'll excuse my speaking with  hideous  frankness?���������"  Norma nodded, smiling a little in spite  of herself. ...  "���������Then I should bo mad, and I should;  ������������������, .������������������ ���������-*������������������- -**.-- ���������_.������   __���������*.**. *���������"*  como snenKing unci _ uu, wim suggestions that we should join forces, and  spend what we'd got on ourselves, just  like Robert Bascot."  Norma drew herself up..  "You couldn't be like Robert Bascot!  That's why I like yon," she said.  "Oh, Bascot is ������ good deal more human than you think,'* said Astley.  "There's only this dill'cronce between us,  that his hobby is postage stamps, and  mine isn't: and that ho shows he's  greedy, and I take care not to show  whether I'm greedy or not."  ���������Tm delighted to hear it. Because I  owe you a deep debt, and if you one.  greedy, I enn repay you. But I don't believe yon are."  This was ihe very first expression of  gratitude which Norma had ever used to  Astley in connection with his rescue of  her from the river. And -she uttered the  words in such a low breathless voice,  with her eyes turned away and her  hands moving nervously, that he was  grcatly'touchcd. He tried, however, to  faugh it. oir.  "Oh, nonsense," said he. "You know  that was no moro than anybody would  have dorrfc. I thought you were too  sensible to think of it irr nny other way."  They were both moving again at n  very slow pace, and rrow Norma stopped  once more.  "Ah," she said. "You think, of course,  becnusi* I haven't spoken of it, that 1  never think about it; but 1 do. At first  I admit 1 wasn't grateful; life seemed  too dreadful a thing to bear. But���������but  ���������now I see more sanely, and���������and I'm  aUiamcd of myself, and���������and thankful  that���������nobody knows���������but you." _  There was a simple confidence in these  words, uttered in the same diffident manner and low voice, which thrilled Astley  to the heart: He felt impelled to revert  to the previous subject of conversation,  which began to have a new attractiveness.  "Come," said he, "let us get back to  thc point. Suppose we were to marry,  yon and I, what would your people say?  What would they think of me? Wouldn't  Ihey spread the tale abroad that I had  taken advantage of their hospitality to  ileal away your heart from its rightful  owner? Come, now, I'm sure you must  :onl"ess they'd say something like that?"  Nonna's black eyes looked down  haughtily   through   their  long  lashes.  "Would you mind?" said she. "I  shouldn't."  "Well, I can't sny I should care to get  the reputation of being a mean fellow.  You sec, if you don't marry me, you admit you will probably end by marrying  Bascot."  . - "They might make mc marry him,  but if they did, 1 should murder him,"  raid Norma,' with ferocity. "If you  would save me from that, therefore, you  would at the same "time save a man  from heing murdered."  Astley laughed a little. He was not  afraid of letting her see him laugh rrow,  for she was getting used to his way of  looking at things, and no longer resented  his lightness cf heart.  ."I'm not sure," he said gently, "that  the prospect, as you put it, is altogether:  reassuring."  "Oh, hut I shouldn't murder you, if  you mean that," said Norma, quickly,  but" smiling a little. 'iYou wouldn't  really be afraid of that, would you?"  - And then she-turned upon him a look,  th_ firs_"of the kind she had ever given  him, eloquent of womanly feeling and  charm.  Decidedly, she" was too good for Bas-  -cot!    Astley involuntarily came a "little  nearer, as if to' speak low.  , "Perhaps not,"-said he. "But���������there's  something else I should be afraid of."  She might have known what was coming, but she did not. Sire met his eyes  full, enquiry onlv in hers.  "And what's that?"  "Why, I might fall in love with you,  you know."  The "girl laughed almost harshly.  "I wouldn't let yorr," she said quickly.  "I would keep you to the bond. My  mother used to say that no man falls in.  love with a woman without some sort of  invitation."  "And' you're not afraid," suggested  Astley, half amused, and half resentful,  "that you'mrght some day be inclined  to give the invitation!" . .  * "Not a bit," said Norma, frankly. "I  respect you too much. I should ,be very  sorry to see a man I liked sink down  into a husband like my uncle, meek in  the presence of his wife hefore other  people, a tyrant in private. Or to see  him become another sort of husband,  openly neglectful and cynical. No, no,  no.    It's better for a man to feel free."  "Yet not to be free?"  Norma was silent. But there was a  deep flush in her checks as she looked  away, and he saw that he had pained  her by the words.  "Look   here,"  he hogan    ngain,  in   a  humble tone.   "I don't quite understand  yet whal you propose to do, supposing  we were to���������"   Shc_raovpd^mpatiently. ^   "Oh, don't let us talk any more about"  it," said ahe.   "Forget that I ever���������"  "But I don't want to forget it; I want  to talk it out and help you if I can. I  want you to tell me, supposing you were  to go "to the registry oiliee mademoiselle  and to come out madame, what would  you propose to do?"  "Nothing," said Norma, quickly, "nt  first, but just to tell them what I had  done, so that tliey would know it was  of no use to worry me to marry Robert;  and so that they would have to let me  have mv money."  "I see. But if you proposed to remain  with them, surely they would make it  more uncomfortable than ever after  that?"  "I don't think they could," said Norma. "You see, I should be absolutely  my own mistress directly; and instead  of doling me out a wretched allowance  of a hundred a year, more than half of  which I have to pay them as my share  of the household expenses, they would  be at my nieicy, since 1 could threaten  lo go away at once, and then my money  would go with me. It's all a miserable,  sordid -affair," she went on restlessly,  "but I'm obliged to tell you all, am I  lot*.'   -  "Yes," said he, "of course you nre.  Well, you wouldn't stay with lhem permanently, would you?"   *  "Oh,' no; I should go to London, to  thc East End, where the poorest people  Ire, and try to do some good there,  -here are lots of associations, charities,  and bodies there for doing good, aren't  there?"  "Ob, yes. plenty. They all do good,  some to the poor, and some to themselves," said Astley, rather cynically.  "I expect I should have nry work cut  out for me in keeping you out of the  hands of rogues, advertising charity-  mongers, and sueh folk."  "You need not worry your head about  that," said Norma, superbly. "I've  given ud  all idea  of this, and  I  quite  /-.���������jrce witn vou that l was mad to spear;  of it."  "Now, don't be nasty. I only wanted  vou lo understand what yon were doing," said Astley, humbly. "But I  quite .agree we've talked enough about  this for thu present. Now 1 must seo  vou home. You're getting cold.: I walk  so slowly with this still' log of mine." *  So ihey turned back, "am! said ������ov-i_a,;  word morn on the subject of Norma's  freak until he had delivered her up  sui'ely at her unclu's dour. But perhaps there was a sort of self-conscious  look on their faces, for the parlor-maid  peeped oul after hiin when she had admitted the young lady, with a sly look  irr her eyes.  She at least was not astonished when,  a little more than a fortnight later, the  news bc-Mine known irr the household,  and filtered down quickly to the kitchen,  that Miss Norma had gone nnd got married to Mr. Darwcn.  Poor Norma had ill-calculated tho  force of the disappointment to the whole  family which tliu news of her suddenly-  announced marriage created. -She had  had half a dozen secret meetings with  Astley since the day when she startled  liinr so greatly by hor unconventional  proposal, and each time he saw her Astley was moro attracted to the passionate  and wayward girl. Not that he was in  love with her: Norma's pronouncement  Unit no man could love a woman without invitation not being without truth,  and she herself refraining distinctly from  giving sueh an invitation, it was interest  rather than love which he felt irr her;  but it was interest strong enough to*  make him throw prudence and common  Bcnsc to tho winds, and become in his  turn the proposer that she should take  his name nnd thus free herself from the  hateful position in which she now was  placed.  There was of course just this differ-  since between their attitudes towards  each other: Norma believed that the  business footing on which they started  could be maintained; Astley knew that  it could not. But to his prophecies  that they would hate or love each other  within a year she turned the deaf ear  of scorn, nnd told him that she thought  better of both him and-herself than he  did.  When, however, she announced at*)  tea ono afternoon, that she had been  married that day "at a registry oiTrce"  to Astley Danveir, the rage and despair  of her aunt in particular knew rro  bounds; nnd during the scene which followed, both that lady and her husband,  to say nothing of Robert, reviled Norma  and Astley in such bitter terms that  the girl rushed fronr the room, put on  her hat and. jacket and started at once,  before any one could discover her in! cation, for Astley's hotel.  Under the old-fashiorrcd wide entrance  she went quickly, and presenting herself  with a loudly beating heart at the office,  asked tremulously whether Mr. Astley  Darwcn was at homo.  As she uttered the name, Norma saw  that a quietly dressed 'woman, who wo3  standing with her hack turned towards  the new comer, and whom she had not  noticed as she entered, started perceptibly, and moved so'that she could get  a look at the speaker.* Even before thc  manageress could, answer Norma's question, the other woman, with a stealthy  glance. at Norma as she went, passed  quickly and quietly out into the stieet.  CHAPTER V.  * Yes, Mr. Darwcn was in the hotel, tho  manageress said.. Then Norma hesitated and asked: "' ���������   "  ' "Did the lady who's just gone out" ask  for Mr. Darwen?" '  The manageress look surprised.  "I .thought she was with, you," sho  answered. "She came in just before  you did, and hadn't spoken when you  .followed her."     _  It was rather a.strnnge circumstance,  .Norma thought, as, much loo shy to send  up her married name, she gave the mes-  ��������� sage that some "one wiahed to see Mr.  Darwen.  So she was shown into the coffee-room,  and in a few minutes Astley came in.  He seemed surprised to see her.   -  "You never sent up any name," said  he, "or at least tliey didn't give me  any."     ,  "I didn't like to," said Norma, who  suddenly found herself -afflicted with an  overpowering shyness in Astley's presence. She was realizing to tlie full tho  strangeness of the fact that.,this man,  who yesterday had been but an acquaintance, was to-day legally hor 'husband.  * Astley, who'had been considering tho  matter also, smiled a little.  "Why not?" said he.  They had the room all to themselves  and oould talk at their ease. But there  was something soothing, " too, in the  knowledge that it was* a** public apartment, and that, as they were liable lo  the entrance of a waiter or a chance  visitor at any moment, there was a sufficient excuse for keeping the conveisa-  tion-at-a* pleasarrtly-eommon-place-levcl..  There was a pause" before Norma said,  rather hurriedly, as sire looked down at  the fire before which she was standing:  Were vou expecting anybody else,  then?'i      *  "Oh, no. Jack Fielding sometimes  looks in, but they know him and bring  up his name, if he doesn't come straight  up himself. But to see you is an unexpected pleasure."  Norma    raised    her    evebrows    and  She  ttlc  demonstrative gestures from her mother.  "Pleasure!" she echoed, with mocking  lips.  "It is a great pleasure," returned Astley, as he came close beside her, and  leaned against the mantelpiece, as she  was doing. "Or at least it would be, if  I were not, afraid that something has  happened to worry you or put you out.  Come, what is it?"  He did not touch hor, but he bent \iiJ  head a. little towards her and smiled reassuringly into her face, as if to remind  her that he l.as her staunch friend at  least.  Then her face quivered, and she almost  sobbed out:���������"It's been dreadful!  Worse, much worse than I expected.  They were hateful, all of them, especially my aunt. At least I suppose Robert waft really as hateful as she, only  I despise him so that he doesn't count.  But oh! It's beautiful to be able to  despise him only, and not to be afraid of  him, too." '  Astley laughed, but not mirthfully.  "I'm afraid this is only the beginning  of the trouble," said he. "Why couldn't  you keep your secret until I was there  to back you up?"  ���������<W_n   T  **' "  (To be Continued.)  shrugged   her  shoulders  dismally.

A Pittsburg physician was visited tho  other day by a very nervous man, who  had dropped in to secure medical advice.  After a brief examination, the doctor  said there was nothing much the matter with his visitor. "Take n tonic nnd  dismiss from your mind all that tends  to worry you, concluded the physician.  Several months later the patient received  a bill for eighteen dollars, together with  a polite request to "please remit." This  is the reply the nervous man made:  "Dear Doctor���������I have tnken a tonic and  your advice. Your bill tends to worry  mc, and so I dismiss it from my mind."  E. S.

He fixed his eye on tlie assistant,  and said to the customer: "Wc havo  plenty in reserve, ma'am, plenty upstairs." The customer looked dazed for  a moment, and tho shopkeeper did not  seem happy when his assistant* informed  him that the customer wao speaking  about Uie weather, and had remarked,  "We haven't had any rain lately."  There is a story of a man of seventy  who, when he was asked if his "father  lived to be an old man, replied that his  father was upstairs putting his grandfather to bed.

The book was named "'Man and Wife."  and the description of Geoffrey Dela-  mayn, tho illustrious athlete, contained  a world of wisdom.  We see the demonstration of this Immortal truth In a thousand everyday  ���������experiences. We hear pugilists and  oarsmen called old and "stale" at  thirty. We see race horses retired  rrom the course nt six as "nged," All  animals, human und brute, that habitually undergo so-called iralnlng���������  another term for exercise���������arc mado  prematurely old. They are the easy  victims of disease. They have rrot tho  vitality of any ordinary boy or girl of  twelve.

The new Premier, a native sorr of  British Columbia, has had conferred  upon him the highest gift in the .power  of his natal province. Young, ambitious and of sterling integrity, his  past political career warrants the  lK'lief that his administration will be a  long and able one. Mr. _ I ciSr-idc lias  been a close student of labour (jues-  tions and legislation regarding them  in all part* of the globe, arrd we look  to see remedies foi- the ton ol't -recurring disputes introduced by him in the  House. His recent promise of civil  service reform has met with unqualified approval and we await with  interest the actual measure that it is  now in his power' to place upon the  statutes. Until the new Premier has  outlined his policy wu arc rrot in a  position to discuss it at length,  although, from past experience, we  are able to judge its tendency.  We believe we are voicing the  opinion of a large majority of the  citiz*...- of Kevelstoke in congratulating Hon. Richard -lcBride orr his  newly conferred honour arrd expressing the hope of a long and useful  career for hia administration.  1891 emphasized the same views., The  phrase "A British subject I was born;  11 British subject 1 will die"*���������was the  rallying cry of his last and, as always,  successful campaign.  It is also interesting  to   note   that  during his first session in the Assembly  he  spoke   strongly    in      favour    of  (���������differential   duties   irr favor  of Great  Britain, contending that:  "In .iny opinion the danger  of our markets.' is not from British  but American manufactures; and  whilst British 'manufactures '.-.'coming  through the.United States -must, of  course, pay the high duty, coming by  the St. Lawrence they will pay in  ad valorem duty of five per cent.'"  There have been very few men Jin  political life whose prophetic instinct  was so sure. ; The -ambitions nf Sir  John .Macdonald in ISM are accomplished facts today, and his life was a  notable example of that quality so  tersely put by Abraham Lincoln���������"Be  sure you're right, then go ahead."

But taking for a moment' -the.'expressed view of the speaker* that the  last motion orr "Wednesday, carried  with it the unspoken ..words'"until  two-o'clock tomorrow", then he should  have 'immediately ruled it out of  order. Itule .'11 of the Legislative  Assembly says "A Motion being once  made and carried in the affirmative  or negative, cannot be'.-put again in  the sarin.* Session, but must stand as a  Judgment of the House." Therefore,  in his efforts to save the Premier from  the inevitable result of a false move,  if he thought the unspoken words  included, the speaker acted irr direct  violation of the Rules of the House.

At the early age of fifteun  he had   to   leave   **H*ooI   to   help   in  -- support of the  family,   and   choosing  the  profession   of   lav,*,   entered   the  office of George Mackenzie,  of   Kingston, as a student, being culled to   the  bar in 1S30,   the   year   before   Queen  Victoria ascended  the   throne.     It is  strange that the first two students   to  enter his   office   were   the   late    Sir  Alexander  Campbell  and   Sir Oliver  Mowat, both of whom, after long and  honourable careers as public   servants  died     representing    the    Crown   as  Lieutenant-Governors      of     Ontario.  Sir John entered political life in   18-10  as member of the Assembly for Kingston and in the foreground of his first  manifesto struck the note of Imperial  loyalty which characterised his whole  life when he said  "The prosperity of Canada depends  upon its permanent connections with  the mother-country, and I will resist  to the utmost any attempt (from  whatever quarterit may come) which  msy tend to weaken that union."

The  initial defeat of the Government was  .upon the usual pro forma motion by  the Premier "That the House, at its  idjoiirned rrnti| two  which was defeated  to   17 against   the  o'clri-.c tomorrow1  by a vote of .15  C-iiveriiirH-iit. ,;������  To enable supply to be passed it was  necessary'for some other mem lier to  move adjournment to another- set  hour, which vvn.s done by .Mr. .McBride, his motion setting the hour'as  :, p. in.

At. this timo the   Premier intimated  that he would accept the first, of these  motions as a defeat   "and   would "ask  His Honour to come down and dissolve  the House at   two o'clock tomorrow."  This   definite    statement  made,    the  Premier moved   "That   the House do  now adjourn." When this wa.s brought  up, Mr. Mr-Phillips al, once  asked   tlie  rirling of the speaker as to   its   effect.  Mr. Poo ley said its   effect wa.s "In adjourn until   two   o'clock   tomorrow."  This   dictum   of   the   speaker   is   too  untenable   to   need   serious consideration.    Anyone iir the slightest degree  conversant with   parliamentary   procedure knows   that   n, motion barely  "to adjourn" is, if passed, nn adjournment    sine     die. The Opposition  realized this   and   accordingly   voted  against it for the purpose, we   believe,  of   defeating    the  intention   of     the  Government     to     adjourn     without  passage of supply.

Fortunately, we hav-e  been up to the present'practically hn;  from serious crimes, but this haswrrt  been the result of foresight but good  fortune. The large influx of a floating  population has,-however/changed the.  condition of affairs, and some addition-  should at once be made to the police  department. The recent case of the  negro, Kid Rogers, committed for  trial showed conclusively the necessity  of such a step. There was only one  policeman on duty in t _te city at the  time the assault in question was  committed, and he was engaged in  taking a man, who was afterwards  convicted as drunk and disorderly, to  the station, leaving the   city   without  Red Rose Degree meets second nnd fourth  Tuesdays of cuch month; White Rose Degree  meets third Tuesday of each quarter, ih Oddfellows Hall.

The recent influx of population  certainly increases the so.rrees of  taxation from which municipal  revenue may be derived and, in any  event, protection to life and property  should not, bo over-looked through  mistaken ideas of economy. This is a  matter on which there should be no  hesitation and we are sure the ratepayers would cheerfully contribute  the amount necessary.to increase the  police force.

According to a return presented to  the Provincial House on April 20th,  and just printed. 1,-00.450 acres of  land have been reserved for pulp  companies. To this must be added  the 700 square miles for the I-.land  Power Co. This means 2888*1 square  miles of land reserved for gangs of  grafters whose only excuse for existence is a paper charter.  It has been stated that Dunsmuir is  employing Chinese as miners in his  mines ut Cumberland, who have not  the necessary certificate of competency.  Tlie Inspector of Mines, Mr. Thos.  Morgan, has been instructed to see the  law enforced and has left for Cumberland.  It is amusing to notice how the Grit  and Railway press are down on  Richard McBride. But still Dick  k������eps on his even way, beloved * by  his friends, but detested by those having axes to grind. Aided by his  friends he compelled the withdrawal  of the Canadian Northern land grant.  Which accounts for the milk in the  "cocoa nut.  NOTICE.

Across tlie  way was an empty hnndsom cab wait-  in, for patrons. There was rather  n ore than the ordinary bustle of traffic ia the famous thoroughfare. Auto-  E-ijo'kii roiled sii-'iitly and swiftly,  jsLages It:mb*-rcd slowly and noisily,  buq all manner of private vehicles  were on parade, making it a matter of  to _ma!l difiiculty for pedestrians to  cross from one Fiuew-all; to the other.  Tho clock on the tower ot the Grand  Ctntrai station near by told all who  cared to note that it was five minutes  pest 2.  Just cs Mrs. Getty was stooping to  en.er her coupe a __���������_ camo hurriedly  cp Forty-third street from the direction of the Grand Central, took in the  scene on the avenue wilh a quick  glance, jumped into the waiting han-  Eca and pushed open the little.trap "in  the top. There was a bill in his hand.  The driver promptly possessed himself  of the bill while he bent his head to  hear his customer's orders.  "Go to No. 3*7 "���������.Vest Forty-fourth  street as fast as you can," said the  can; "there'll be somebody there to  tell you where next. Don't let anything I-*-never delay you."  "All right, sir," answered the cabby,  dropping the trap and jerking the  rcir-s.  The horse started at once, and at the  came moment the passenger got out.  "Cabby saw him go, and wondered, but  vi.h the bill still crumpled in his  hand, a'nd with the passenger's struct  ' injunction to let nothing delay him  ringing in his ears, he drove on, and  the jam of vehicles was so great that  be could not even turn his head to see  vrhat became of the passenger.  "It's a good job, anyway," thought  cshty. thi_'_i_g of the bill, "and if tha  fellow at No. 347 is as generous as this  -cne,-r-!!-ssuthat__c_r_ccatJ!'xe_n^dedi  eo long."  The man who had left the cab sc  shortly after "*-ns "i'.r.g it rlsed bib  teck by running in front of a r.tage,  dodged an auto and darted across the  avenue, making as straight as ..'ircum-  t'.anccs would p.-rmit for Mrs. Getty's  coupe. Sh������ l'3d nestled into a comfortable position and the coachman  was climbing to his box when the man  opened the coupe door, .meted and  pulled the Coor to quickly, but noiselessly,  "Say nothing, madam," he said  sharply, "or I thai, i-��������� io:n;i?11ed to retort to violence to quiet you."  Mrs. Getty shrank, terrified, against  the side of the coupe, her cheek3  blanched', her lips par.ed and her eyes  -istended. Tbe man rank upon tha  teat beside her and breathed heavily.  Then tbe coachman, all unmindful of  what had taken place, spoke to his  horse and the vehicle started.  The episode had attracted no attention from the sidewalks, for the pedestrians, intent on their own affairs,  could not see what went on in the  rc-dway. It may be that a number of  ���������persons In p sing conveyances saw a  part of it, but they eomprehended'not  nnd cared not. So when, a few seconds  later, a number of men came rushing  eicltedly up from the Grand Central  -.tattoo, such information as they could  gain by hurried inquiry sent them  are-ding, some on foot, some in cabs,  tiown West Forty-fourth street.  So soon as the coupe was ln motion,  th- man turned to Mrs. Getty with a  .������������������precatory smile, in which there waa  _ gleam of satisfaction, and said:  "I am truly sorry to intrude on you  Jn this unmannerly way, madam, but  there's room for two here, and you'll  have to endure my company for a bit."  .  *_. can easily attract tbe attention ol I  Yny eonchmSh.'* said Mrs. Uctty, resolutely, "aud have Ul ' put you out and  Into the hands of thu pnllco."  "As she finished speaking she raised  a hand to rap on the Window.*  ������������������Don't madam," e.;i.*lalm**'' the man,  nppealingly, and lie help u;; a band  too, nol lu "ureal, but us a gesture of  entreaty.  At .sight or it Mrs. Getty sank again  into her cornor and stared at liim,  once again, with speechless horror.  A roi ������������������*" the wrist he held up wr.s a  steel -.nd, and from it depended a  Xrag'aert ol" ehnin.  "1 tekl you 1 should have to shock  you again." he Raul quietly, "but you  know the worst now. Yes, 1 am a con  vict. Ten minutes ago 1 was on 1117  way to Slug Sing. You may not know  that convicts are always taken up on  tho train that leaves the annul Centra*-  :it five minutes past two. 'lire train ha3  gone and 1 am here. Wait your assistance 1 shall Ue a. free in nu wit bin un  hour."  "No! No!" sho protested, faintly,  "you shall not make me a parry to  your crime." And again she mado as  if sho would rap on the gass.  "One moment, madam," he interposed, a little sternly, and ns he displayed once moro that steel band and  Iho broken chain, her resolution gave  way to helpless terror. "1 have committed no crime," he continued, impressively. "My life 1ms beeti venture  some, colored with many an episode  that I regret, but before heaven I am  innocent of tho chargo upon which I  have been convicted nnd sentenced. 1  can prove my Innocence if I can he  free but a few days.. To go to prison  now would mean the destruction of my  only hope of clearing my name, unless that might happen after I had rotted for years in a cell. You are listening, madam, and I will be brief, for  time is pressing. Convict though I am  in the eyes of the law, I have faithful  friends who know my innocence. Thoy  have helped mo thus far on my escape.  One of theni"* managed to supply mo  with a pair of super-hardened steel  pincers. Another thrust money into  my hand during the moment of confusion at the railroad station. I waa  manacled in tho usual way to a deputy  ���������sheriff. When wc were about to board  the train I nipped the chain that bound  nre to my guard and broke away.  "My friends mado a diversion that gavo'  me a flight start, and here I am. Now  you know everything except my plans  for establishing my innocence. Those  I have not time to tell you, and;you  might not understand them. Liberty  I must bave. You will not give nro  up. Pity me, madam, and save nro  from the unmerited degradation of a  felon's life."      ������  "What do you expect me to do?"' cho  asked.  "Have your mnn drive lo tho Twenty-third street ferry," ho replied coolly, "and cross the river. 1 shall then  be not only in thc Pennsylvania railroad station but in another State, and  iiiose facts together will give me ail  the time I need."  "I cannot do' it," she said. "II is  not right for mo to interfere with the  law. In a moment my man will stop.  You may then go out, and I will not  ask him to summon an officer. That  is all 1 can do, and it is more than 1  ought."  Even then the coupe was driven to  the curb preparatory to stopping.  "Madam," said the convict, hopelessly, "lt shall be-as you say. and within  ten minutes from the time you leave  ine I shall again be a prisoner."  If he had used threats or shown desperation, the outcome might have been  different. To this day Mrs. Getty is  puzzled to explain her course to her  own complete satisfaction. When the  coachman opened the coupe door ho  started a little at sight of a stranger,  hut, liko a well-bred servant, said  nothing.  "Wilson." said Mrs. Getty, with astonishing calm- ss, "my friend is in  a hurry to catch a traia at the Pennsylvania station. Go over by the  Twenty-third street ferrj as quickly aa  possible." . .  Wilson bowed and closed the door.  "You are an augol!" whispered tha  convict,  ��������� Ke said nothing more for a time, but  fcusied himself in winding a handkerchief around his manuclcd wrist.  ������������������Unfortunately," he remarked nt  length, "I lost my pincers in the :*rut-  (le and so can't get. rid of this just  at present. May r ask one t.c.*o *.'.-.vor  of_ry.ou.?____ast_n_,_i_ul____Li_^____1U_u_,  pin, please, and It will then rp-rar  that I have injured my wrist and the  sign of my disgrace will not be visible."  He held his hand toward her, .--.nil  Mrs. Getty,"wondering if she were under a hypnotic spell, complied with  his request. He thnnkod her and remained silent until the coupe was driven from the ferryboat to the platform  of the railroad station on the New  Jersey side of the river.  "Thank you once again," he said  then, as he p"���������iitnd.   "if f might know  who has assisted "  "No." she Interrupted; "I navor  want to knew more than this.'  "You are prob-bly quite right," ho  responded. "Good-bye," and lifting  his hat he went rapidly toward the  ticket office.  In the next day's papers Mrs. Getty  read long accounts of Ihe sensational  escape of a noted forger on his way lo  Sing Sing prison. There was a lot of  detail about the -rsuit. of an empty  hansom cab, but not a word about the  coupe in which there proved to bo  ample room for two.  A YELLOW SEA POPPY.

Some time after 1 had entered thc  court, I was introduced to a very well  known detective, who has gained many  laurels in the past*, and who will gain  eo many in the immediate future.  He is a very gentlemanly man, well-  dressed, smart-looking; and when you  have talked to him tor a few minutes  you realize ln tho quickness of his eye,  and the sound sense of his conversation, the ability that has brought him  into his present position.  I wanted his reminiscences; but an  inherent dislike of publicity forbid*,  him from helping his wouid-be scribes;  nor would he help me more than otn-  ers.  "Never mind," I said, "I shafl have  them for all that, you see if, f don'L," I  I am able, however, to tell you some  amusing things about this great detective, things learned in a chat with  an old detective officer, almost as famous, and an ardent admirer of my subject. ,  He is now forty years of age; he has  been in the service for twenty years,  but has only been a detective for ten  years. During that time he has seen  as much of London life���������in its better  and more vicious forms���������as any living  man; and were he to write a book, it  would he ono of the most entertaining  volumes that we could possess.  * One of the most amusing' cases that  he was ever engaged on was when, in  I3S2, he arrested throe famous "mags-  reen," that is, confidence-trick men. in  a public-house near Euston Station.  He had followed these men for days,  until one morning he saw two of them  fn the    public-house    and    the    third ,  loafing about outside. Thev were ! oeen charactinzed by* the skill that he  waiting for a victim; "and so," said j ���������las brought to bear upon them. With  the "tec," "I will be their victim, and i -hCEe T do **-ot Propose to deal;  but I  'Oh, yes; I enjoyed myself very much."  This is the amusing side of detective  ife. Lot us take another side. In tho  lame year, my friend was instrumental  n capturing eight desperate burglars,  if whom tho captain was a man named  iVillim Lovett.  This man, a regular desperado, was  traced by tho detective to a loft over;  1 stable, and, although knowing that  :wo or throe desperate scoundrels were  at tho top of the norrow stairs, out  detective went up, taking but ono officer with him.  The moment he ente*'cd tho room,  he saw that the affair was full ot danger. Lovett drew a knife from his  pocket nnd sprang upon him, but ho  struck the man under tho ear and  knocked him down. Then, lest ho  should recover, ho took hlni In his  inns, nnd thinking that tire other men  wero -about to spring on him. ho contemplated throwing l.ovott down the  stairs.  However, In tho end lie carried him  down, and called his olllcer', who said,  *We*re carrying a corpse," a statement  which frightened the 'Toe" very much.  They faid .the man down in the* police-  station aud applied cold water to hiri  head. But Lovett did not Tike cold  wnter. 1  With a howl and a bound ho sprang  up, and made anotAor grab at the detective who had caught him; rather a  roolish proceeding, seeing that' he was  surrounded by police officers, and had  no chance of escaping.  This Lovett, afterwards sentenced to  a long term of imprisonment, was a  daring fellow, for he made his escape  from Alillbank, and then walked about  London for two days witn a loaded re ���������  nolver, his sole purpose being to shoot  tho celebrated detective, whom ho regarded with a perhaps easily compro-  aensible feeling of animosity.  Fortunately tor himself, that gentleman was at that moment lying in his  own house, suffering from a sharp attack of typhoid fever, and when he  recovered he learnt the great risk he  had  escaped.  All great criminals seem possessed  of a great desire to shoot detectives,  and this is not unnatural seeing that  such officers are, in the opinion of  thieves, impertinently inquisitive and  offensive  in  their* curiosity.  The suject of this article once had  a narrow escape with an American  nurglar named John Owen, a man who  had committed many crimes* in the  north of London. The detective followed him for days, knowing well  that the man always had a revolver  in his pocket; and that, wore he tackled, he would certainly shoot his captors.  Here was a desperate job then; and  one of the detective's assistants  thought it so desperate that he bogged not to be left alone with Owen  even for a few minutes.  The hour for this burglar's canturc  same at last. Walking close by him  in tho street, the. pursuer suddenly  pinned his arms and threw him backwards. The fellow was thrown down,  md when he learnt that his captor was  a detective he said, "Well, [ should  have mado a hole in you, I guess, if  I'd known who you were."  These are but a few of the many  groat cases that the great enemy of  evil-doers has been engaged in. For  instance, he captured the perpetrators  Df the Regent's Park murder, when a  young man was stabbed and no clue  of any sort was left to identify hi3  Assailants.  Again, he brought Hatton to justice  when a woman was discovered in a  5eld near Elstrce with her head crushed, and dozens of other    case's    have  RETIRED.  The strong tide breaks upon the narrow pier,  The ships go by; and ono who know  them well  Sits at tho close ot day, and sits alone.  Captain no more!    But ho remembers  yet  Tho littlo town in dear old Maryland,  Where flrst he learned   by star   and  wind and tide  The track of '.Ire ocean, and the way of  war.  Upon tho wave that smote his nativo  land.        _ #    u..

The pseudo-father cried to thc suspicious man, "It's all right, you idiot,  shut up," and then he fell t.o tossing  with the detective, and Anally opened the whole scheme, saying that, if  the detective would trust his son with  his one hundred dollars to go round  tho cornor with, he would give him  more money, and the son hinted that  ho (the victim)" and himself might.di-  vide it.  "Exactly," said tho detective, nnd  with that Ik* whipped out the handcuffs and buckled the psVir.  Of course tho BWlndlers were falrlr  taken. "That "big sum of money did  me," said one of them, "I never  thought that the police went about  with so much money."  These three sharpers were In a fasting mood when tried.

With the tall clfffs on one side of mo  nnd a vast ei-pajf.se of ocean on the  other, I made my.way over saud and  shingle, careless of" everything savo  the appearance of my immacuiatc  flannel trousers, until the town of  Brinybay was hidden by a chalk proci*-  ontory, and I found myself .alono, or  apparently alono, with Nature.  As,'however, I approached*an irregular mass of rock lying together at the  foot of the clilf, a scarlet object appearing above lhem attracted my attention, and, on Hearing the spot, I  discovered it was a parasol shading  one of the most'bewitching girls I had  ever beheia in my life���������and I have seen  a good many."  Comfortably seated on a mossy boulder and deep in the perusal of a yellow-backed volume, she was becomingly attired in a dress of pale pink,  and as I passed her I fancied she peeped at me from beneath her shady straw  hat; but young men always think that  girls notice them, especially when  like myself, they are Oxford undergraduates with their college arms emblazoned on the .breast of their blue  serge jacket's.  I had not left this siren very far behind when my progress was. suddenly  brought to a stop by' the sea, which  had covered the beach and was lashing  the base of the cliff. I at once realised tho unpleasant fact that the tide  ,was flowing, and that if I did not speedily retrace my steps, my return to  Brinybay would be prevented in the  same manner as my advance.  Hastening back, and' passing th'6  maiden in pink, who was reading as  unconcernedly ns ever, I again found  my path barred hy a sheet of water  several yards in width. I was completely shut off from tlie mainland.  To scale tbe cliff was utterly impossible, and although I might have resumed my homeward course after wading through the water. I could not  have deserted the fair girl near me,  who was evidently unconscious of her  critical situation. The waves were  rapidly advancing towards the rocks  among which she was seated, and the  ���������seaweedclinging to-themtold-me that-  at high waaer they were totally submerged.  Approaching the parasol, I coughed.  "Excuse me," I saliL "but the tide  is coming in very fast, and, I am  afraid, will soon bo up here."  "Oh, dear!" she exclaimed, blushing,  and hurriedly looking around her.  "Oh, dear, how very stupid of mc not  to notice lt; whatever shall I do?"  "The only possible way of getting  back," I* remari'ed, as sho slowly closed  her book and left her seat, "Is across  this piece of water, but it is rather  Jeep.''- ��������� ���������    In silence she followed mo to the  spot, and after gazing upon the fast-  widening barrier, looked up at me and  smiled.  "I'think I know   how wo can over-1  *ome the difficulty," I snid, "but I hope  you won't be offended at my suggestion."  "Oh, no, no," she exclaimed, with a  little laugh;: ''anything as long as I"  can got out of this horrid fix."       :  "Then, I-believe I could-manage to  carry you across, If you Wouldn't object," I said, aftor some hesitation.  Another s.mllo lllumlnbd her fa.lr  countenance, and she replied In tones,  ot the deepest sincerity���������  "Oh, thank you, thank you; I should  feci so grateful If you would, so very  nuch obliged."  Throwing off my shoes and socks,  and tucking up my Immaculate ones, I  put the yellow-covered book into one  ot my capneious pockets, depop' ->d my  ttlck with the scarlet parasol _n the  beach and gently lifting its fair owner  n my nrms, in nnother moment had  'orded the water and depositee, her oa j  ;ci*ra firma.* .....

Next morning   I wns    told    that a  Bontlcmnn desired to speak to mo in  private,   I   ordered   nry   landlady   lo_  show tho visitor in, and forthwith a'  black-looking man. of middle ago, entered my parlor.  "Mr. Lyon, I. presume?" ho began,  eyeing me unpleasantly.  "I am Mr. Lyon; what is it?" I said,  nnnoyeil at tho stranger's manner.  "What is it?" he sneered; "what la  It, Indeed young man! What do you  mean by sending my wife such stuff  ns this, and by asking her to accompany you in a yacht, etc., you impertinent fellow?" and he threw my Iktlo  note to Bessie Cragg on to the tabic.  "Your wife?" I exclaimed In contusion, "your wife, sir? I think you are  in error; I think that you have made  a mistake, sir."  "Mistake!" cried the stranger fiercely; "mistake���������fiddlesticks. I am Mr.  Joseph Cragg, young man, and if ever  I catch you Insulting my wife with  another such billet doux it's ten lo one  yon won't have a chance of repealing  the offense!"  With this terrible thrSnt, my visitor  lofi the nouse.  I threw   mysplf   into a   chair   and  groaned aloud���������a pretty   ending,   forsooth, to the romantic incident of tlio  preceding day.  During tho next week I had Ilttlo  bliss; it made me miserable lo think  that fair and frolicsome Bessie was  bound for life to such a wolfish  monster as Joseph Crngg.  On reflection, I wondered why she  hadn't informed her husband of hor  adventure .by the seaside (for I presumed he was unaware of it,) and why,  when she was with me, she had av-.  pearcd so eager to accept my invl.a-  tion.  I met Mrs. Cragg' several times  alone in the town and on tho pier, but*  always passed her without any token  of recognition. On one occasion ' I  fancied she smiled faintly at me, but  .taking no notice of her familiarity. I  thought, for a married person, that her  behaviour was extremely improper.  Just a week after my eventful ramblo round the coast, while strolling  'listlessly on thc esplande, I was surprised on being accosted by a pleasant-  looking old lady who, grasping my  hand/exclaimed���������  "Aro you the gentleman that saved  my dear little Marie from being drowned whenialmost caught by the tide  some days ago?"  * I was a-soliitely bewildered, nor was  it until I was seated in the gushing  old lady's drawing-room conversing  with her arrd her fair grand-daughter  Marie���������the identical possessor of the  scarlet parasol���������that an explanation  of the whole affair ioole place.  Mrs. Elizabeth Cragg was a friend  of Marie's and had lent her the yellow-  hacked volume which, ou being return-  tel to its original owner, had fallen Into the hand3 of Mr. Cragg.  Without-showing either Che book'or  the note to* his wifo, this gentleman  had opened the letter with the above  tccorded unpleasant result.  It may interest the leader to know  that Marie and I took our yachting  trip as proposed, and thoroughly enjoyed it, too; but boyonc! tho information contained In the appending newspaper cutting, I cannot furnish fur User  Particulars of tho consequences of my  eventful ramble when, although I elinl-  .G__lh(_-_lii_c_i_i oP__N_cptune,._J_______  victim to the snares of Cupid.

"Cy repose wo do not mean idleness  or sluggishness; but wo mean steady,  quiet, life-building activity. Every  healthy child is brimful of active life,  but it Ib restless only under artificial  conditions,  If repose Is powor then we cannot too  early train the child to observe times  of daily silence, short Intervals when  both mind and body rest. Our public  schools should cultlvato more repose on  the part ot both teacher and pupil, for  in the school lies much of the moulding of tho'race. These practical psychological and physiological lessonB can  be incidentally taught and would result in a freer, healthier and happier!  people. The schools would send home  fewer tired nerves if relaxation and  energizing were more frequently alternated during the day.  Train the mind to free the nerves,  relax the muscles and lay the inert  body down to natural sleep. It you are  not able to keep the body still you cannot control the mind; then begin by.  training the body to lie in rcposn.  Focus the thought force on using the  right nerves and correct muscles for;  the immediate work and let those oft  of duty rest.  If every person weighed down with  cares and tired muscles would thoroughly relax for a short period daily  they could retain and generate force  sufficient to accomplish tho remainder *'  of the day's work without exhaustion,  and the mind would thus be able to  evolve new plans and ideas.  It would be a blessing to humanity,  If there were rotreitts throughout tho  business part of every city for times  of silence interspersed wilh music; music because it possesses that special "  power to quiet and harmony.  Many persons never enter a car 01  fioat, read, teach   or   listen   that   the  nerve tension does not increase, muscles contract, wrinkles come and a sufficient amount of nerve force is wasted  to have prevented any bodily discomfort or fatigue.    Why?    From ignorance how to run their own machinery.  Note how many in conversation talk  all over;* it tires one to see every^nerve .  and muscle  expending force-.for'one-   ���������  duty.

Then Is. a deal of thoroughness  Kbout Mark Twain. When he sets  oufc to relieve his mind ho is apt  to relieve it fully. He stops not  at the end of the page, nor at o convenient point, but when ho gets through.  When that happens it is usually found  that he has made a mark that will stick.  Ihe reader may differ with his views,  but ho does not forgot them. Thoy aro  too well pounded in for that.  Ma_k is publishing in the "North American Review" a series of discourses on  Christian Science aird the future beforo  It. These discourses wore written in  Europe in 1800, and have been seasoning  tor Uireo years. This month's chapter  Is'raainly devoted to tho amazing proflt-  Hbleness of Mother Eddy's monopoly.  Mark insists that the old lady will ba  worshipped in duo timo by her following; meanwhile ho guesses how much  money ahe must have nrndc, and what  are Uie financial prospects of what ho  calls thc Boston Christian Science Trust.  Bo can iind no cviuenco that thU trust  ever gives anything away. It sells many  things���������tire great Eddy book, hymnals,  manuals, miscellaneous writings of Mrs.  Eddy, and the like, "always at extravagant prices, und always ori tlio one con*  dition ��������� cash, ons'i in-advance." From  Mid to end of thc Christian Science Ht-  aroture, says Mark, "not a single (material) thing in the world is conceded' to  be real except the dollar. But all  through its advertisements that reality  b eagerly and persistently recognized.".  Mark has a keen scent for money*  Changers in tho temple, as readers may  reoaJU. The trust, he finds, now collects  *, fee of three hundred dollars for a finishing course of seven lessons at its  metaphysical college in Boston,' and a  Cox of orre dollar a head, annually, from  all members of Christian Science  Uhurches. He thinks its revenues from  all these sources���������books, souvenir  spoons, fees and taxes���������must already be  very large, and bid fair to be enormous.  And he cannot find that it has any serious expenses, or that it supports any  charities. He is very deeply impressed  by Christian Science a������ a commercial  enterprise in the hands of a small trust,  not accountable to anyone for its receipts. He insists that it is destined to  win an enormous growth. He guesses  there will bo ten million Christian Scientists in America in 1910, and that Uiey  will be a political force. He guesses that  they will be politically formidable in  1020, and in 1930 "the governing powei  of the republic���������to remain! that permanently." "Aud I think it a reasonable  guess," he adds, "that the trust will  then be tire most insolent and unscrupulous and tyrannical politico-religious  master that has domineered a people  since the palmy days of the Inquisition."  As for the curative branch of Christian Science, Mark declares that the  power  which  a man's  imagination  has  , over his body to heal it or to make it  sick is a force which none of us is born  without. But because, if loft to himself,  a man is likely to use only that half or*  the force which invents imaginary ailments, it takes two imaginations, his  own and some outsider's, to help him.  The outsider must imagine that he is  doing the work, and thu patient must  imagine that this is so. "I'think," says  Maik, "that it is not so at all; but, no  matter, the cure is effected, and that is  the main thing." The outsider's work,  he says, is unquestionably valuable. ' He,  likens it to the' work done by the engineer when he turns on steam and starts  the engine. , The power is in the engine,  ' but if left alone the engine would never  start of itself. Whatever you call the  engineer���������Christian Scientist, Mind Cur-  ist or Hypnotist���������he is simply the engi-  - neer, and* turns on the same old steam  and the engine does the work. The reason why the Christian Scientist engineer  beats all tie others is partly, Mark  thinks, because he has uie taldngeet  name and wears religious overalls, out  obiefljr because he hae organized the business, backed it with capital, and concentrated it in Boston in the hands of a  small and very competent trust. It is  on' tile existence of this trust that Mark  baa based his expectation of tho vast  spread of Christian Science. If it were  loosely conducted, a* such enterprises  usually ore, it would do no better than  "*__Dig_i__-d great moral and commercial T-nturea" usually do." "But I believe,** be says, "that so long aa this ona  remains compactly organized ... in  a trust, the spread of its dominion-will  continue.**  He Owned "Jay Eye See."  Christian Selence failed to eave Jack*  jon I, Co������, the young nrillionoirn  oi Wisconsin, from the sentcne*  passed passed on him by tho do*  ���������tors Borne months ago. So thoroughly  did he believe in Mrs. Eddy's dogmai  that ho was engaged in writing u. lettoi  to a local papor, denying there was anything tho matter with him, when, ne  dropped dead. He inherited a large fortune from his father, whose .hobby was  the Hickory Grove Breeding 1'arras,  whence came the groat pacer, Jay Ey������  See, and, brought up among horses, he  became'a noted horseman. He was an  impulsivo young fellow, and proved it  by his marriage. At n* roller Bleating  rink lie fell the victim to nn obncuro biit  bewitching divoreoo who wa* marry  years Iris senior.

Ho hnd  designs on Washington, but tiio interests  of tlio great threshing inachino work*  which his father had built up, and the  other enterprises in which the Case millions wero invested, bourrd itiiu to that  narrow sphere against his will.  Jackson Caso was as libcrul-lreartcd as  his, father was penurious, and was preyed  upon by every conceivable breed of  crank and trickster that tire Middle  West harbored. They made his life miserable, for he never acquired the art of  ���������aying "No," which was ever on the lips  of the elder Case, who loved to display  his passion for parsimony to all men,  even after he had many millions to his  credit. One of the father's delights was  to rite at daybreak of a winter morning,  hang a basket on his arm, repair to hi_  fine not-house in the rear of his mansion,  pick a couple of huge bunches of gropes,  walk two miles to market to sell them,  returning home with a porterhouse  steak for breakfast. These eccentricities  worried the daughters, who were socially ambitious and very susceptible to ridicule about the paternal thrift. Jackson  was shrewd ana brisk in business, and  ambitious to make tlie most of his immense opportunities. He was .undersized,  sensitive and erratic, and his later years  were tinged with sadness and cynicism  brought on by ill-health and a keen capacity for pleasure thwarted and circumscribed by the duty and hardship of  keeping ten million dollars' worth of property from taking wings in a manner to  delight the hearts of the million cranks  that beset him. His short career was in  strong contrast to that of tiro typical  Eastern millionaire's son, who "puts not  his trust in millions, but put3 his millions in trust," and then goes motor-  earring through Europe. At the age of  thirty-seven one of the brightest careers  in the West was crushed out by one oi  lis biggest fortunes.���������-"Town Topics."  How Carnegie Greeted the King;  The visit which King Edward paid Andrew Carnegie at Skibo Castle was a  . oomplete surprise to the philant*hropi*t,  bhe King merely telegraphing him a| few  hours beforehand that he would arrive at  _ certain time. Mr. Carnegie happened  ���������to"-be -asleep wheni-the���������wire���������came, .says  a correspondent of the Philadelphia  "Press," and it was not handed to him  until he awoke. Tire correspondent relates the incident thnt followed: -  < Then there was considerable excitement. The King was duo in live minutes, and Mr. Carnegie was in despair at  the thought that not a single arrangement for his reception had been made.  Itien Tne had an inspiration. At Skibo  there is-an immense pipo organ whioh  Mr. Carnegie had put in somo time ago  for his own pleasure. An organist is a  permanent member of the millionaire's  household. Mr. Carnegie determined that  tbe orsan should thunder out "God Save  the King" as his Majesty entered the  castle. But when he sent for the organist, the reply came back that the musician had gone down to the neighboring  swimming-pool. ������ v  "Have him out of the water, then!"  roared Mr. Carnegie.  And so-they had him out. Actually  dripping and clad only in a blanket, the  wretched man was brought back to th*  castle on the run, borne into the concert-room and plumped down on the organ stool. '��������� It was just ��������� time, for 'tha  word passed that the" icing's carriage  ������vas coming up the driveway. An immense screen had been dragged in front  Df thc organist, now innocent even of  his blanket, so that.Ire was shielded  from view, and thus, the water dripping  [rom his hair, Iris fingers and his slioul-  ler-blades, the shivering musician played  "God Snvo the Queen," while one servant  rubbed him with a coarse towel and nn.  nfcher gave him brandy. The Kirrg was  delighted with his musical reception, nnd  when Mr. C.iniegro told him the cirenm-  rtances under which tho National Anthem hnd been performed his Majesty  laughed till his srdes ached.  Privileges in Preference to  Rights.  Josephine Dodge Daskam, one of the  most popular-of   the   yourrgor   writers  of    Uie.   day,    is    not    in    sympathy  with"  woman   suffragists,   and   thinks  tire    girl    of    to-day    ought -  to    be  eager to 'hang on to her many privileges  and let her rights go.    "If you cannot  in tbis generation get'your vote, you always can get your voter.   Women have  always influenced man, and I .don't see  but .what that's just as good.   There it  some danger of women getting what our  brothers call the 'big-head.'   If the young  girl isn't careful her brother may turn  Eke the worm.    Whatever we do, we  should leave 'him two tilings.    One of  these la tihe conviction that he know*  and can. do more than we can (as, for in-  ,stance, looking up our trains for us),  < and we should leave him his bank-book.  He may give us every thing'else, including his latch-key.    I think there is a  great deal of unnecessary-twaddle these  days about the increasing strenuousnesi  of the young girl. -1 don't think she hat  changed so much.   I don't think these  little fads "of the modem girl and modern" woman, such as pbysiaal culture, or  vegetarianism,  or  Greek   grammar,  to  which she must devote at least a morning a week, have changed tihe woman underneath.   She haano more mind.   Sht  may use her mind a little differently,  but it's the eo-_e old mind, the same energy tii.   ehe uses. There are two things  Which women  must  always 'have  had  since the creation to be successful, and  those two things are the same in the far-  eff islands of tae Pacific and in the high  school in Massachusetts.    A woman to  tie successful must be good and she must  be charming.    Vou may  think of her  charm as 'her parliamentary ability, hei  oratorical power, or her excellent canning of peaches, but she has got to "nave  it.   ~_U- if ahe is not good, the world  can't progress.   There may be something  interesting in the bad woman, but she  .can't-pe*^tuate_nations,ji^,_after all,  that was the main purpose of our creation, I think.   If a woman is good and  nothing else, she will be aa dull as anything tihe world ever made, but if she  can De good and ohanning, hor heritage  and posterity eaa ask absolutely nothing  better."   Miss Daskam proved her sincerity and fearlessness by including the  above remarks in a paper which she read  before the Pilgrim Mothers, at their recent two 'hundred and eightieth anniversary of tlie landing of the "Mayflower,"  for most of the members of the league  are woman suffragists.   Naturally they  were somewhat surprised and disappointed with her point of piew.  Curious Bits of News.

On the other hand, the Lord Chancellor, thc Solicitor-General, tho Secretary for India, the Foreign Secretary,  the Chief Secretary for Ireland are of  Irish origin. Where does poor England  come in.  The progress of the religious census of  London being made by the "Daily Maws'*  shows, with almost unbroken regularity,  that Londoners are not church-goers.  Seven districts of, t London have been  enumerated ���������.Kensington, Hampstead,  Batter-sea, Padding ton, St. Pancras, Lambeth, Wandsworth���������with the result that,  in a total population of 1,340,090 in  these localities, only 267,514 men, women  and children have attended the churches  and missions of -all the denominations  and faddy religious sects. From this attendance a considerable reduction has to  be made on account of those who go to  church twice daily.  The Lady Chameleon is attracting attention in Paris. She is a young Rumanian, Marga Cerbus by name, whose  coloring is determined by her emotions.  Anxiety turns her green; she is pink  when joyful, violet when afraid, and  black when angry. The Boston "Journal" can see how such a woman would  be a never-failing joy as a wife. Her  husband would never be in doubt as to  the precise nature of' her mental condition. And then there might come a  mildly polygamous feeling to a husband  having a white wife, a colored wife and  a red wife on different days. "Yet Miss  Cerbus will, no doubt, marry a man that  is color blind, and therefore unappre-  ciative; such is the irony of life."  "It begins to look as though tho  brothers Lebaudy of Paris had already  6olved the problem that has battled every  airship inventor hitherto���������sailing against  the wind,'* says a writer in the "Scientific American." "Following up their first  rather sensational success, they made an  ascension at Nantes recently that gave  striking, testimony to the truth of the  claim that they had made the most  nearly perfect airship yet built. Several  ascents were made, the balloon returning to a given spot each time. It moved  in all directions above the fields and  woods whichborder the Seine. In every  instance the airship * was brought back  to its starting-point at a speed of twen-  ty-fiye' miles an hour, the turn being  made against the wind."  Engagement Extraordinary.

It turned out that he was an old  friend of the family, escorting the young  lady to lier home in the West. Their  immediate destination was Oswego,  where they would take a boat.

The sleeves are short in front  and fall long in tho back in exquisite  bite of scintillating drapery, Wirough  which the pink llosh gleams. No neck  jewels are worn with this costume, and  only a few rings���������sapphires aud diamonds.  The cloak which completes this wonderful toilet is of black shirred chiffon  and net, made over a sapphire blue satin  lining of the exact shade of the gown.  The collar is a fluffy mass of black ruffles and plaitings, and the entire bottom of its long skirt is made up of row  after row of double ruchings and shir-  rings.  A delicate blue neglige, matching the  color of Mrs. Langtry's eyes, is per-taps  the most becoming of her toilets. The  bodice of this creation falls quite  straight from the bust, with a long bias  ���������earn up the front. A wide blue satin  ribbon is passed directly around the bust  and tied in a huge bow at thc left front  side, leaving wide ends falling to tho  feet. Tlie neck is medium low in cut,  and perfectly round, finished by three  alternating rows of satin pipings and  white chiffon slrirrings.

Tho latter have deep cuffs buttoning to the wrist, arrd made entirely of  pipings, a dozen or more in number, applied bn white net. Turquoises and diamonds are worn with this costume.  The white water-lily gown, made of  white not, showing greerr graduated rayons at intervals up and down the skirt,  is exquisite. The bottom fulness of tho  skirt is a mass of yellow and blackhearted water lilies, with green-colored  petals, outlined in silver spangles of a  dull finish. The leaves of the lilies aro  made of white chenille, and stand out in  exquisite relief. The bodice shows the  same capelike effect back and front already described, .with only slight modifications. The rapes are made of rare  lace, on which lilies and leaves are embroidered, The graduated flounces which  form the sleeves are, also of this material. The most charming and novel feature of the bodice, however, is the soft  silver fringe' which is united in some  mysterious way,with the lace and falls  over the arms and in stunning festoons  over the bust to the waist line.

NeNon's mail is more important  than any other- business man's or  traveller's through the city or irot.  Air. Harold Nelson states tliat Ire has  Im veiled far irr the Dominion. He  .should therefore know by this time,  that general delivery of mail matter  is fixed for special hour's during the  day and that on Sunday the public  (including Air. Nelson)cannot get their'  mail-tliMjugh the-general deliverVratnl  it was a piece of presumption orr Lhe  part, of Air. Nelson when he sent his  a_si*,t_iil to the post ofllce on that day  witli a demand for his mail.  The editor of the Alarl follows up the  letter* of Mr.   Nelson   with an editorial  touching orr the alleged discourtesy of  the assistant post master Air. Calhoun,  for in tin* first part  of   tlie   article   he  excuses Air. AfcRaefor the reason Ihat  that   gentleman   is rarely irr the .ofllce  arrd   therefore  lias   no  chance  lo   be  discourteous.

During  this   time   we   have" never-   had   the  slightest   cause   for    complaint,   arid  further,   have   never heard a  word of  complaint  from    any   source   of   discourtesy on   Afr.   Calhoun's part.    So  far a.s  the  customs office is concerned  the   same   has   been   the   case.    The  Hkrai.h   will   venture   to  state that  there is not a. single person in the city  of Revofstoke  who  works harder   or  longer hours  than   the assistant postmaster.     The editor of  the Afail must  have gone  a long way out of  his way  to  make such   unjust   assertions and  we are   firirrly  of  the opinion he took  this   course   from    personal    motives  rather'  lhtui   irr  the   interests  of   the  public as he so mildly suggests.

It appears  that at the place where he fell in thc  water'did nob r-each abovo his knees,  hut in his excitement he walked  further out into the river with his pole  instead of discarding it as his companions shouted to him to do. When  he reached deep water they called to  him to hang on to his pole as an  assistance to keep liim afloat hut he  disregarded tliat advice also.
