Mr. DefeliniiKh' is probably -one of  the greatest Iivirrg authorities on the  lunilK'i' trade.  The l-MciHc tlonst laiinlier Mainrfact-  urers' Association, which meets in  'I'n con in August 22, hay invited him to  address the session. Before ho returns  home, Jlr.

' When seen  at theWashington yesterday he  said:  "The timber value, of 'Washington,  must, continue to rise rapidly from  natural causes which are a.s inevitable  .���������is the tides. In far;., the rise has  already begun. I dare say that the  'timber purchased three years ago by  the Weyerhaettsers at. fronr 30 to 50  cents rt, thousand feet sttinrpago, could  not he bought either in part or as a  whole for three times the original  purchase price." I  But B. 0. has Also 'another cause for  jxrntifioa.ion in legislation by Cape  Colony. Quite recently, by the casting vole of the speaker. Natal decided  upon u, preferential tariff within thc  Empii'e and it is believed ' that Cape  Colony will shortly follow Na I al's  example.

Lhe business of  Vancouver, New Westminster arrd  Vieluria will shortly he an export one  beyond supplying the local demand  This will mean much to Kevelstoke  and its vicinity as Lire large market of  the prairie, will have to be supplied Iiy  irrteiior mills. ltevelstoke is tire  principal point of production arrd can  easily increase it when need arises.  ���������Such expanding markets mean  higher prices and extended employ,  merit, all of which Will be of much  benefit* Lo Lire city.

Hume ������te Co*...  Two Days' Sport Will Be Held  Here���������To Be Annual Event.���������  Energetic   Committees   Have  Been Appointed.  On .Monday evening a very fair  number alt end t'd the meeting called  by the Mayor io consider tire i|uesr.iou  ol' a Labour Day celebration, and  everyone was enllui-.ia-.lie in .support  of llu; idea. It was unfortunate that,  being pay day. m:my who would  have otherwise been present wove  compelled to iviii.iiii in llieir places ot  business, but the town is .solid for a  good' .(.-elebrrition and He.vi-lsi.olci* is  going I ii have orre.  The .Mayor, in opening the proceedings, .siriled Ihal it was only right that  the city should have an annual 'programme .-of . sports. And as the city  was pi'.-rc! ically ('(imposed nl* working  men the. choice of Labour Day \va.-  niost, suitable. The -time was limited,  but if good coiiimitiees were elected  .���������ind' kept fifth.. at it an immense success would be as-.'.ued.    (Applause).  On million the .Mayor was elected  chairman, and Jlr. II. Floyd .secretary,  of the meeting. I'puii being reiuiesteii  by the Mayor to give suggestions for  organization. Mr. A. Johnson puintc'-l  out tbat the work always fell largely  on two or three and the meeting.*  should carenilly consider the o,u*ili.ic.t-  trons of those it appointed. The intention lo have an armvtal celebration  was a good one and Ihe choice of  Labour Day most appropriate Th*  .surrounding cities had their own days,  such as Kamloop*., May 21th, anil 1,  Nelson, Dominion Day. so it would be  a good thing to let everyone know  that Labour Dav was reserved for this  city. I u view of this he suggested that  arr association be formed and submitted the name of Jievelstoke Inler-pro-  vincial Labour Day Annual Celebration.    (Applause.)  Mv. .1". W. Bennett though!, tiie idea  a good one and would do his best lo  secure success. He understood the  inienliou was to have both labour  unionsarid friendly societiesinterested,  some of both having already elected  delegates, arrd suggested that all such  organizations I.e. comrnniiic.ited with  at ..once. He supported the idea o!  reserving Labour Day for lievelsfoke  as it consisted of working men. (Hear,  hear.)  Mr. P. Hoc-ley staled that, although  not sent as a delegate of his union, he  felt it wonld be favorable to the  scheme which had his hearty support.  Jle also thought a fitting way to close  up would he a concert and'dance in  the opera house, thc proceeds being *  he voted towards the proposed city  librarv.    (Applause.)  Mr.  Theo.  J.  Wad man stated that!  the   International Association of Ma-1  chini.ts had'taken   the   matter upa|  month ago and elected hirrr as delegate j  to serve oir the committee.    Jn fact*, if j  the citizens did   rrot decide to hold a  celebration  his order would tackle it  single barreled.    There were some 70 or  SO   of- them, all of   whom were determined to celebrate Labour' Day and do  it well.    (Applause.)  After some discu.siorr it was decided  that the name of lhe association be  "Tho Revelstoke Lab an- Day Annual  Celebration,-" and'also .that the ollieers  consist of a* President, Vice-President,  .SeereLary-Tn-usurer and a committee  of .., with power to add to their number.

Let us ever follow liim  ts   obedient   children,   saying :���������  Food Value of Dried Vegetables.  One of the most remarkable peculiarities of thc lower organisms, as exhibited  in  seeds    and  other vegetable  bodies, is the fact that they arc capable  of withstanding desiccation    for very  considerable periods without losing capacity for    germination    and development.    The vitalized  .crystalloids    and  colloids  which   possess  the  power   of  assimilation    and. metabolism    appear  capable of having all uncombincd water  removed by evaporation without undergoing molecular disruption'by thc loss  of their combined water.    They    appear to retain the combined water much  as crystals retain water of crystallization. If the ordinary drying of seeds,  corms, rhizomes and bulbs docs not destroy  the   integrity    of  their    protoplasm or alter the.availability of   their  storcd-iip albumen, starch or sugar, it  would appiiar that they    should retain  all  their nutritive value, and  that the  same should hold true of most, if not  all, vegetables used for food by man as  well as it docs for forage crops preserved by drying.  It is curious that the desiccation of  culinary vegetables should be so much  neglected, nowadays in view of th������  universal use of dried fruits from pre-'  historic times and the practice of drying such vegetables as the pumpkin,  in vogue among early New England-  crs, in evidence of which the shiny  pumpkin poles are still to be seen  hanging on hooks in the ceiling in front  of the fireplace of many an old homestead. Experiments made i J Germany,  and more recently in California, have  demonstrated that desiccated vegetables  suffer no loss of nutriment, and that  they remain savory and wholesome.  Here is a splendid opportunity for  the utilization and conservation of potatoes, beets, parsnips, cabbage and the  like at the season of their greatest  abundance and in years of overproduction, whereby there may he added to  the regular supply a line of familiar  food concentrated so'.-as*' to. admit of  'economic transportation for army rations and for those who cannot afford  such fresh vegetables put of season.  While it may:not pay to can such vegetables as we .have...mentioned, it would  be a boon to many if they were put on  the market dried.  Do not try to make a specialty of  wool and mutton at the same time. Thc  best muton breeds are not the kind  of sheep for producing the choice  grades of wool. The size of the sheep  does not affect its production of wool.  The heaviest fleeces come from thc  merino, which is the smallest breed of  sheep now known.  If farmers were as careful and systematic in the management of their  herds as the breeders of pure breeds  are with their cattle much better results would be secured from ordinary  stock. Even the best breed will fail  if not rightly managed, and all classes  of stock can be made more productive if extra care is given.  "We go the way &������ir .-illter.   went.

So many complaints come to me  about young chicks dying from some  mysterious cause that I take this opportunity to give my method of .feeding  and caring for" them, as I have had 3c  years' experience in poultry raising.  While my method may not suit all, I  have been verj- successful with it'myself. 1 have fed all kinds ot feed in as  many forms and ways as 1 could invent, and found that it is    absolutely j  MAP OF THE  PERSIAN   GULF.  At Bunder Abbas, Russia has long do-  sired to establish a naval station. Britain says she must not. France in 1SSI9  obtained a concession for* a naval station near Muscat, but Britain vetoed  that. Muscat is ruled by its own Sultan under a British protectorate. ���������New  York Tribune.  No foreign nation, says England, shall  ���������stablish a naval base in the Persian  Gulf. Such an attempt, in the words of  the Marquis of Lansdbwne, tho Foreign  Sceretary, would be regarded "as a very  grave menace to British interests, and  we would certainly resist it with all the  means at our disposal." This move is  to protect the British trade with India  and the east, and prevent Russia, which  borders Persia on the north, from seeking  ���������. railroad terminus in the Persian Gulf.  Tho slgnficance of such a threat is therefore great. Much now depends on Portia- herself, and many who have studied *  the characteristics of the Persian shake  their heads. Lying and extortion are  prominent characteristics of his race, and  whatever may be the fair promises which  he may make to one: power, there is no  telling what he may be whispering to  another.  Using the Waste.  The last word in the utilization of waste  material seems to have been said by a  .orrespondent of The American Machinist, says The Literary Digest,- who writes  is follows to that paper about a New  Tor*, factory for the transformation of  .Id tin cans into various useful products.  "I was much surprised and greatly inter-  sstbd a few days since, when 'shown  tlirough a certain establishment near Now  STork City, to find that the Taw material'  jsed consisted chiefly of empty fruit and  vegetable cans rescued by the cartload  from the dumps or' the city. I had supposed, up to that time, that the only purpose for . which such material was suned  was food for goats or to be attached to  the tails of unfortunate canines. The  principal products of this establishment,  which is a foundry, are window-sash  weights, elevator weights and ballast for  boats. The weight castings,are very hard.  and, when struck with a hammer, ring  like steel.

The foundation objection to thc dual-  purpose idea for dairy purposes is that  such cattle arc not prepotent in the  transmission of dairy capacity to their  progeny. Thc instances of such cows  as are so often cited to us as convincing proof of the soundness of the idea,  are, in fact, no proof at all that it is  a practicable thing to breed such cattle  to a profitable average from the dairy  standpoint.  Mr. Frank D. Ward of Batavia, N.  Y., is writing some very instructive  articles to tis-. Tribune Farmer on  "Types in Breeding." We take the  following extract from the issue of  April 16 to show his experience in this  desire to secure a cow that shall bring  the largest profit both for milk and  beef and still breed true to such mixed  purpose.  "��������� Mr. Ward says:  "But how docs the general or dual-  purpose animal compare"   with    those  bred for a special purpose, and which  will  return  the greatest  profit  during  their life on the farm?   I well remember some animals I owned whose merit  Impressed  me  forcibly.    One of  them  was a pure bred Shorthorn cow, Hope  VI., which was bred on the farm, and  was kept there  until she was sold at  about ten years, of age.    She was one  of  the   most  perfect  types   of  a   beef  :ow we ever owned, weighing over sixteen  hundred pounds,  low  down  and  broad, with a back like a table, and at  the same time she was a most extraordinary  milker.     Some   idea   of   her  merit  as  a  beef  cow  may  be   gained  from the fact that she won first prize  as aged cow in the Shorthorn class.at  one  of  the  largest  fairs  in   the  state,  and at the same fair the next day she  won   sweepstakes  prize  as  best   dairy  cow of any age  or breed,  in both  instances  having  a large  class  of competitors.    But Hope VI. never bred a  :alf that was even an ordinary milker;  and as to her dairy qualities,  she was:  simply  a  "sport,"   without  any  power  of reproducing the  dairy qualities she  oossessed,:   In    the  spring of  1873  I  bought two heifers Which were typical  specimens of dual-purpose cows; they  were high;grade Shorthorns, and were  the  choice  from  two  good  herds  in  Livingston  county.    I have  owned  a  good many cows, and some good ones,  but I neyer'owned two'.cows that would  give as many pounds.of milk or butter  in a year as they.,, did;   *They were in  my herd eleven years, but during that  time   I   was   able   to   breed 'only   one  heifer, from  either of.\ those cows  that  was even, up to the average as a milk  cow, but that was one of the very best  :ows I ever owned, and she was sired  by a pure Shorthorn, bull.  ;    >    ���������',������������������:.-  "She was kept in my herd until she  failed to breed at sixteen -years-old."  but she never bred a calf that was of  iny value in the dairy. If T- am asked  to explain as to these cows, I ."'must  say they ' were ' other instances of  'sports"���������cows in which abnormal  :haracteristics were developed, .but  they had no power to transmit these  characteristics to their offspring. Tt is  true that, as individuals I made money  bn these cows, and lots, of it; but I  suppose that in the years I milked,  them the three cows dropped about  ihirty-two calves, of which proh.ibly  fifteen were heifers, and .in:my desire  to secure more cows like the old ones  t kept on growing up heifers which  were acf ail ure in the dairy, and were  sold as second-class beef. Thus they  robbed me of all thc profit I made  on the phenomena' cows that bred  ihem. After balancing some books and  doing some hard thinking, I sold all  the dual-purpose cows, and bought  Jerseys  for the dairy."  The true purpose of a dairy cow is  twofold: (1) To produce milk to the  best possible profil; (2) to contain  within her Ihe elements of procreation  *thftt=isha!!**=perpetnate.  increase dairy quality in her daughter.  The dairy sire must have" within him  lhe same and indeed more dairy prepotency than the cow, or* else he is a  costly failure.

Prof. JaWes (who letrds the Harvard  faculty in the number and variety of his  donrees,   being  a   Doctor    of    Mediclno,  Philosophy, Letters and Laws) relates the.  caso of a brilliant Harvard man who received un appointment  to  teach l_iigllsh  literature  lu  another  college  before   tho  awful discovery was made hy the governors of tho institution  that  he  had  not  tho Ph.D. degree.

So   the  candidate  divided the time during tho next year between   teaching   English   literature   and  preparing a thesis orr u. philosophical subject.   Ho rocelvod the degree, which signified nothing in rogard to his knowledge of  Knglish   literature,   and   the    stain    was  wiped out.    Now the aim of such a college, as Prof. James explains, Is to dazzle  the readers of Us catalogue with a bewildering galaxy of titles.   Tho parent or  student will say to himself:  "This must  be  a  terribly  distinguished  crowd���������their  titles shine like  the  stars in  the firmament;   Ph.D.'s,   S.D.'s   and   Lltt.D.'s   l>n  spangle tiro page a.s if they wore sprinklsii  over,it from a pepper caster."   This spirit  Is pure sham, declares Prof. James.   He  continues:���������  "Will   anyone    protend   for a  moment  that  the  doctor's  degree  ls  a  guaranty  that Its possessor will be successful as a  teacher?    Notoriously   his   moral,   social  and personal characteristics may utterly  disqualify him  for success In the classroom,   and   of   these   characteristics " his  doctor's  examination   is  unable   to   take  any account whatever.    Certain bare human beings will always be better candidates for a given place than all.the doctor-applicants on hand: and to exclude the*  former by a rigid rule, and in  the end  to have to sift the latter by private inquiry  into. their    personal    peculiarities  among those who know them, just as if  they were not doctors at all, ls tn stultify one's own procedure.    You may say  that at least you guard against ignorance  of  the  subject   by  considering  only   the  candidates   who   are    doctors;   but   how  then about making doctors in one subject  teach a different subject?   This happened  ���������In the Instance by which I Introduced this  article, and It .'happens dolly and hourly  in all our colleges.   The truth is that the  J.oetor-Monopoly   in   teaching.- which   is  becoming so rooted an American custom,  can show no serious grounds whatsoever  for Itself in reason.    As lt actually prevails and grows in vogue among us, it is  due  to   childish   modish   exclusively.

Though every effort has been made by  the authorities at a certain Cambridge  theological college to suppress the facta  relating to the "ragging" of some of ths  students during last term, the circumstances have at length leaked out, according  to English  papers.  Practically every college at the University is at one tlmo or another the sceno  of mild und harmless "ragging," but in  this  case it was of a thoroughly brutal  type, and the evil effects of lt upon the  college are likely to be felt for years.

Later  on   the   unpopular  undergraduate was astorrlshed to receive un invitation to a dinner.   He attended it, only  to find himself the butt and victim of his  hosts.    He managed to escape, and succeeded   in    barricading    himself   in    hla  rooms, whither he was followed by twelve  undergraduates,  who made desperate attempts to break In, with the avowed Intention of destroying the furniture.   Somo  sabres adorned the walls of his room, and  when  his .assailants  contrived   to  break  out a panel of the door and one of them  put his arm through, the let-rilled undergraduate slashed at htm 1 with one of the  weapons and inflicted 11 long gash 011 hi..  forearm.   For this act he was warned by  tho college authorities that he had been  guilty of "very dangerous conduct."

It was on the following day, early w  the afternoon, that Norma, who kept indoors for fenr of meeting Astley, and,  with a view to keeping a watch on the  sl.cr - KiigrroUs* cottage, saw two smiling faces  ��������� *���������** ni "tire gale, and'recognized, with tears  irr her owrr eyes at the sight, two visitors  from The Hull, in lhe persons of aadxe  Brown and "Jack" Scorton.  Sho opened the door, to them herself:  but they would not come in; she must  come out with them, they said.  "Poor child!    She's been crying!" said  Sadie, with a caressing gesture.  "Xo, she .hasn't," s:iid Norma. "At  least, she hadn't till she saw you."  "What! Don't say the sight of 113  made you  miserable!"  "Miserable! Oh, no, just the reverse.  I was glad, delighted, to sec your kind,  bright faces."  '���������'There, Jack! isn't she nice?" said  Sadie, turning with a smile to her young  companion, who seemed rather nervous,  and who blushed more than Norma had  previously seerr hrm do.  **Of course she's nice," said Jack laconically.  '���������Now put on your hut, there's a dear,  r/ood creature, and come out with us.  We've got .-something to say to you; at  least, one of us has," snid Sadie, with arr  air of importance.  Norma did as she wns told, and was  soon walking up the lane between her  two companions, who seemed overwhelmed by some fact, or secret which  they appeared to hesitate to divulge.  '���������Voir begin, Sadie," said Jack at last,  leaning forward to throw a mysterious  glance across the intervening Norma at  the face of the bright American girl.  '���������Well, then, you must know that Jack  has something very important lo say to  you, and thnt he wants ijio to open the  matter for him," begun Sadie gravely.  "I'm to tell yoii that what he is going to  sn'v is serious, and is the result of car-  nest thought, and Ihat he hopes you  won't treat it frivolously because ha  happens to be rather yoiinif."  "I'm not .so very young," put in Jack  with irritation. *T 'shall be nineteen in  a.week or two, which is, I fancy, about  the. age of���������of you.  too, isn't it?"  "I'm nineteen)" said Norma, wondering what was coming next.  ���������''Well, then, now 1 think I've said  enough, and you can speak for yourself,  Jack," said Sadie, as she suddenly turned  and left the two together.  Norma turned round, too.  "What docs she mean?" asked she in  amazement.   "-Miss Brown���������"  But Sadie walked on quickly, and Jack  put a detaining hand oir Norma's arm.  '���������Never mind her for n minute," said he  earnestly. "It was ull arranged between  us that* she should go away like thnt.  She's a real good sort, Sadie, and a dear  girl. They wanted me to marry her, you  know, because she's ever so rich; but we  didn't take to each other, at least not in  that way. And so we made a compact  to help each other in other ways."  Norma began to smile.  "You seem very good friends," said  she.  "Oh, we arc," said Jack. "Look at the  way she's helped me this morning! I  shouldn't have liked to come here by  myself j I should have been.afraid you'd  send down a message that you couldn't  see anybody," he went on, his bright faco  glowing with such sympathy and shy  kindness that the ready tears sprang  again to her eyes as she looked at him.  "There, don't cry! Oh, don't, don't! I  was there yesterday, you know. Sadie  and I both were, and she had to hold me  down- when that beastly cad Wharle3  said what he did! It was a shame, an  infernal, awful shame, and this morning  I met him in the street and told him  what I thought of him. I did really:  you ask Sadie 1"  Norma felt divided between an inclination to laugh  and an inclination to cry.  "You shouldn't do that," said she.   "It  doesn't do any good, you know."  "It does do good to let him see what  gentlemen   think   of   a   man   who   tells  lies!" retorted Jack robustly.   "But anyhow, that's not what I came here to tell  you.   You won't mind my speaking to  you?   You won't think I'm impertinent,  or���������"  "Indeed I know you couldn't he that."  "Well, then, I'll tell you what is the  greatest wish of my heart.   Sadie knows,  and she thinks my idea" splendid.   I do  hope vou will too."  "What idea?"  "Well, it's this. It's horrid for you  ,and for Sir Astley, too, to be in this  plight through this horrible Wharlcs woman's sister."  "Oh, don't talk about it, please."  "I won't, I won't more than I can help.  Look here, I've thought of a way out of  it. I know Sir Astley's a good fellow,  and a nice fellow, and 1 know you're fond  of 'each other., But what's the use of  that, if there's another woman in tho  way? Now what I propose is that you  should marry mc���������"  "Marry you!" echoed Norma aghast.  "Yes, yes'," said he earnestly. "I know  it3 strdden, this idea of mine, but it's a  good one, isn't it?"  "A g���������good one!" stammered Norma.  "Yes." Then you could snap your lingers at lhem all, and show them that  there was a rush for you, don't you see?  And' Sir Astley, well, poor fellow, I'm  awfullv sorry for him. Still, it will bo  better" for him to know you're provided  for, won't it? I'm sure he'd rather. Arrd  then, if ever this woman dies, he can  marry Myfanwy, you know. She's aw*  fullvsweet on hiin, she really is."  ��������� "Why,���������you- take���������my-breath-away,"  ;aid Norma, still uncertain whether to  smile or to cry; for in contrast with tho  wirdness of the lad's suggestion, there  was an earnestness, a breezy, enthusiastic sincerity in his manner whicli warned  her that she must not hurt his feelings  fcv any appearance of treating his offer  lightly. "Don't you know, don't you understand," she said gently, "that I love  }stley. that I married him, as ho married mc, believing him to be free; and  that I can't look upon myself as anything but his wife now?"  "Well then, why don't you go back  and live at Thc Haigh?" said Jack with  routhful straightforwardness. . "Why  but because you feel you can't as long  as this woman's alive?" Oh, I know*the  feelingl" he added with confidential sympathy. "You feel that you're his* wife  in the sight'of heaven. But what's.the  use of being his wife in the sight of heaven, as long as you can't be in the sight  of'earthr"  At that -blunt putting of the case. Norma felt her inclination to laugh get the  better of her wish to cry, and she smiled.  "Look here," she "said gently,' "it's of  no use to argue the matter with me. I'm  > wo���������in, you know, and must have nry  .wn wav.

And noth*  insr could alter tliat'feeling of mine, even  if it's a feelrnrr onlv. nr.d not a fact."  "Well. I think .'it's a great pity you  won't listen to reason, and Sadie will  think so, too," said he soberly, and with  a most thoughtful expression of face.  "But remember this; if you change your  mind you've onlv got to hold up your  flngcr.'and I'll fly to you like a bird. I  should love to! "You'll remember that,  won't vou?"  "Oh," ye3,   I'll   remember   that,"   said  Norma, Irer face wreathing in smiles in  spite of herself. "And now let's go and  run after Miss Brown. I'm sure she'll  be miserable at 'being so long away from  you."  As Jack accompanied her, with a very  grave face, he said suddenly: "it isn't because I'm so young, is it? That wouldn't  be fair, you know, because you're nearly  as young yourself!"  Norma assured him Hint that had  nothing whatever to do with it, and then  they camo up with -Sadie, at whom Jack  shook his head woefully.  "She wouldn't hear of il, of course!"  cried the American tit once, "i told you  so, Jack, didn't 1?"  "It's nothing to boast about," said he  sulkily. "And. Indies generally say 'no'  the first lime.   1 shn'rr't lose heart."  Sndic begun to laugh, hut Norma broke  in quite gravely:  "It's beautiful to hnve such friends as  you both. It makes me feel much happier."  And then they both hastened to glue  themselves to her, one on aire side r_:id  one orr the other, (tnd to sny cheering  and comforting things to her out of the  kindness of their hearts, bulh talking at  once, for (he most part, in a very cheering nnd cheerful manner.  They enure to see her again .ind tigniii  in the course of the next few days, during whicli Norma lived quietly at the cottage ami kept carefully out of Astley's  way.  Whether he knew of her whereabouts  or not she was riot sure, urrl.il one day  she saw him walking slowly down tho  lane and glancing up wistfully at her  window.  Her heart leapt up. She. wanted to. go-  out to him, hut she struggled with herself, feeling that .it was best for both  thnt they should for the present remain  altogether apart.-  And then the very thing happened, in  her sight, before her eyes, Unit she had  been constantly dreading: Dr. Wliarles  drove up, on one of his so frequent visits  to Raggett's cottage, and he arrd Astley  came face to face.  Norma saw from her window that the  two men exchanged a few fierce words;  a taunt from the doctor, no doubt intended ns a provocation, begnn it; it was  followed by a sharp retort from Astley.  Fearing that the latter would not he able  to keep his terrrper, Norma rushed out  into the lane, and was by Astley's side,  holding his arm, before the exchange of  another word between the men.  He was 'so,much astonished, moved,  overwhelmed, by the unexpected appearance of the woman he loved, that at once  he allowed himself to be drawn a step or  two back. And the doctor, thinking discretion desirable, went on into the cottage.  Norma kept her hold on Astley's arm,  and led him away down the lane.  "Where did you spring from?" asked  Astley, who was flushed and delighted  at this meeting.  "Oh, the cottage .where I'm staying."  "I know. I've kept religiously away  until this morning, when I thought I deserved a peep at you, and came along  here on the chance."  "Well, now I want you to take my advice, and I should like a promise that  you will to "begin with."  "Well?"  "I want you to leave the! Haigh for a  little while. I.t's had to risk these meetings with that man."  ight.    But I don't  It  ngs  TT believe you're right,  want to go away and leave you here."  "I'm not goiag to stay here long. I'va  got something to find out before I go."  "You won't tell me what it is?"  "I'd rather not. I may he quite wrong,  you see, and then I should only raisa  false hopes."  "What is that fellow doing at Raggett's cottage?"   *'  "How should I know? Somebody ill  there, I suppose."  "Raggett's boy was the witness who  wouldn't speak," went on Astley thoughtfully.  "Never mind about that. Will you  promise to go away, and keep clear of  awkward meetings with the.doctor?"  , "I'll do whatever you wish. But he  wouldn't be able to taunt me again as  he did ih the court that day. I wrote to  Leamington, not to her, but to Mrs.  Finch, to ask how things slood with  them. It seems she has run into debt.  So I've sent her five hundred pounds to  clear that off,'and I'm going to allow her  five hundred a year. I couldrr't be expected to do more than that, could I?"  "Certainly not," said Norma thoughtfully.   "Is she still ill?"  "They say so."  Thoy were standing under the wall and  the     overhanging     and  ' still     lealless  ���������yn nches.  . ''Good-bye," said Norma softly.  Astley hesitated. Looking beirirrd him,  Ire saw thaL they were out of sight of  the collages.  "You'll kiss me, won't you?" snid he.  She Hung herself into hi.*, arms.  "Good-bye,   good-bye,   God   bless   you  -a nd-keop-you-safe !"���������wIiispprcd-sho-brokenly.  A minute later he was hurrying back  through the plriiitaLion; and she, with  Irer eyes still dim, was returning to the  cottage.  Orr the following day Norma knew  thnt Astley had left The Hnigh, and the  next thing she learned was that the inquest on Tom llogerson's body hud been  ignin adjourned. .    *   ^  CHAI'TCTl XX.  When she knew that Astley .had left  the neighborhood, Norma found herself  more free irr her movements. She geri-  ���������rally took a walk iih the morning, arid  inotlier in the afternoon, frequently  passing through the plantation and lire  grounds of The Haigh'on her way.  Astley had left a key to all;the private  gates with her; and although she hud  told him, with a shudder,,that she could  never go through the plantation where  she had made the ghastly'discovery of  Rogerson's dead body, she subsequently  jot the better of her feeling on this matter, and chose this walk more often than  anv other.

The Idea seems to be gaining ground  that the first calf dropped by the heifer should not be allowed to suck, the  reason given that the heifer should  not find out that there is any way but  to be hand-milked, and the ��������� affection  that would otherwise be bestowed upon  the calf ls as freely given to the milker, and the maternal Instinct that ls  so strong In the desire to supply nourishment for her young then knows no  other demand; and if the man..,who  milks her is gentle and coaxes and  feeds her, she quickly adopts him, and  she gives him all her milk, and in her  way "loves" him. But if the calf  ls allowed to suck for a week or so,  the heifer cannot understand the  change to hand-milking, and the usual  performance of breaking has to be gone  through; milk is not only held up, but  kicked over, and less milk ls obtained,  the estimate being that between two  heifers, one*,not allowed her calf and  the other given It for a week, the flrst  will, during thu season, give 15 pur  cent, more milk, and will milk the  longest. The calf need not be removed from her -sight, but tied at her head,  but If hand-milked she quickly discards the calf and cares only for the  one who milks her. The question is  an interesting one, and is worth not  only discussing, but giving it a trial.���������  C. Or. Freer-Thonger, in London Farm  and Home.  Skliumed Milk for Chlckcnn.  At the Indiana.

Around the  margin are set in a row small pieces  of wood, diamond shaped, gathered  from all over the civilized world. Ia  one end of the back is inserted a horseshoe made of castor wood, and in ths  other end is tbe image of a rabbit '  carved in cherry.

The report that Siegfried Wagner  was to marry an opera singer proved,  like the story of Paderewskl's -second ,  marriage, to be a canard, but a German musical paper supplies its place  with another Wagnerian anecdote. The  story goes that Siegfried' took his Srst  composition, a polonaise, to his father,  and asked for an .opinion. Wagner, *  however, refused to look at it, saying  *hat only fools wrote polonaises. Siegfried pointed oul that one of his taker's earliest compositions had been a  piece of that kind. "A boy* twelve  ���������years old ought to mind his books,"  said Richard. "Mozart began composing when he was six," replied Siegfried. "You are not Mozart." "No.  but I am the son of Richard Wagner."  After that there was nothing for Wag- -  ner to do but look through tbe polonaise.

That  he was. while* a  member,   devoted   to  the fights of the  people,  was  proved  on many occasions.

He hrs no apologies to muke regarding  his previous, course in the Legislature,  for none are required, and  Mr. Taylor  again submits  himself to  the  people  with a -record of which any mnn might  be proud.    "We heartily congratulate  him on his selection and have absolute  confidence   that   on    October '-Slat he  will be  elected  by   a  handsome   inti-  'jority.

This being the ease, i.s not the total  unworkiibili.y of the 13. C. Socialist  platform shown'- when its very first  plunk reads :  " 1. The trims.urination ns rapidly  as possible of capitalist, property i'n  the means of wealth production ( * * *  * * * * rail ways etc.) into ihe  collective   property  of   the    working  I'lllSS.*'  We have heard many Socialist,  speakers tell of whut they would do if  in control of the Provincial Legislature, Among olhei' things they  piornised to acquire the (MM., in H.C.  and operate it as a public* work. Sueh  a proposal can oply be made either by  a knave or an ignoramus. We have  pointed out. on several occasions the  total failure of Socialist aspirations  when their- airy clouds of theory run  against the mountain of solid fact anil  this is only another instance of the  absence of knowledge of existing legislation which has characterised the  Socinlist party from its inception in  the Province.  And the Liberal platform, in dealing  with this matter, is also noticeable for  the name fault. The convention of  February 7th, 100_!, (where bye the bye  the Martin and anti-Martin factions  had a free fight) dealt with the subject  in the following manner:  " 2.

The   latter knew  very well of the limitations imposed  by the B. N. A. Act, but attempted to  delude the electors by promising what  the Province has not power to per-  fotm. This sort (if thing has been  done too often by the Liberal party,  and we tiro sure the people are at last  alive, to the buncombe set out as the |  Grit platform.  Tho honest position of affairs is  shortly this. The Province cannot  undertake thu construction or acquisition of any important railway as a  prrtylic.work, that power resting solely  with the Dominion. The Socialists  and Liberals have promised impossibilities, in*doing so they cither make  absolute misstatements or show gross  ignorance. The people will see to it  that neither liars nor fools, aud their  platform makers must be.one or the  richer, shall be entrusted to conduct  the Government of British  Columbia.  NOTICK.

PUBLIC   RAILWA YS  Tlie attitude of the Conservative  party in British Columbia is. orr this  important matter, clear and distinct.  The platform adopted at the first  "~P'riirt*iHdiar"^conVentibnf^heId-tttr^ew=  "Westminster in October, 1S99. contained the following declaration of  principle:  " To adopt the principle of government ownership of railways iii so far  .���������is the cin.urrr__.in_i*.. of the province  will admit, and the adoption of the  principle that no Ixmus should lie  -granted to any railway company  which does not give the "government  uf the Province control of rates over  lines iKinu-sed. together with the  option of purchase."'  That Conservatives have not��������� altered  their views was conclusively shown by  the re -affirmation of thesame principle  nl the last convention held irr this city  un September ISth. 1002.  The cprestion will be reasonably  asked, why is such declaration limited  to ���������' in so far as the circumstances of  the Province will admit"? The  answer shows clearly the fact that the  Conservative party docs rrot promise  ���������what it cannot perform. The reason  ���������of such limitation is found in the B.  _N\ A. Act, under Section 02, of which  the pi-ovinces are expressly prohibited  from building railways "connecting  " the Province with any other or  *" others of the Province or extending  *' beyond the limits of the Province."  Jt will thus \te seen that the power  given to British Columbia, for the  prosecution of railway* i.s extremely  small and, at least until such time as  tiie B. _���������������. A. Act is amenilcrt. ),))<.  Provincial authorities could rrot built)  other than branch railways covering  merely local traffic. The section  Mentioned also debars the building by  In its frantic efforts to defeat the.  presunt Government our contemporary  was 'more than ordinarily silly last  week. 11 gravely asserted that "the  trail between Gold Stream and Smith  creek is impassable, though owing to  the amount of work and packing  there it is most necessary." Such a  wise looking assertion deserved every  uttention, only there is no such trail.  Gold Stream and Smith creek flow  into the Columbia on. opposite sides,  one from the east and the other from  the west. We remember the. editor  of the "Mail" was missing recently for  a few days. The mystery is now  accounted   for.       Donning   a   diving  the river  bed trying to find something ahout  which to register a kick. As, at best,  the Columbia is rrot what might be  termed a limpid stream, his classic  corns must have butted against a.  boulder and our as teemed suffered a  shock that had to he worked off in the  sanctum. In the course of a few  weeks we expect to hear him howling  ���������alM>iit-=the=circ������inambenfc=ethej*__.-jiot_!  being clear'for airships, or that mnr-  conigrams are beirrg obstructed by  bluebottles and blaming Hon. Richard  Mc Bride for that.  Political antiigiiriism is often the  ground from which spring pretty lively  polemics but the occasion mentioned  is the fii-st to our knowledge where a  man dived to the Ixittom of a river to  get mud to fling at his opponents.  These geological excursions may have  a value to an earnest seeker like our  esteemed but we trust he will pardon  us for suggesting that there is danger  ahead when 1. grown up makes mud  pies.    He's liable to _ticl. in it.  NOTICE.

To the Editor of the Heeale:  Sir,���������Permit me to trespass upon  your space for the purpose of commenting upon the editorial "Crass  Ignorance" in your last issue.  Mr. Ogle stated publicly from the  band stand that owing to the ambiguous phraseology* of the paragraph re-  garding the Taff Vale strike it was  ifflcult to determine whether you  wished to convey the impression that  the Taff Vale decision was rendered  inoperative in Great Britain or in B.  C, if the former you were in error ai_d  if the latter it should have been more  clearly expressed. To quote "showed  what he did not know aliout trades  unions and gave a re-hash of the Taff  Vale strike which by the bye as far as  B. C. goes has nothing to do with the  case." From this one might naturally  assume that in your opinion, incidents  which transpire in Great Britain have  no effect upon B. O. Continuing you  say "'special legislation was passed  making the decision in that case inoperative." What other case than  that: case, viz., the Taff Vale strike,  was involved? hence no other conclusion could .redrawn grammatically  interpreting your language than that  which Mr. Ogle drew. ; *  : Analyze your own wording carefully  and doubtless you'll realize how easy  it is to misunderstand what you really  meant. Following Mr. Ogle at the  same place and on the same evening I  stated that the Taff Vale decision had  established a precedent which manufacturers in the U. S. A. quickly followed as instanced by a recent controversy in; Rutland, Vt.,.whe_*ejdamages  had been awarded against the local  lodge of I. A. of M. for $2500 and that  as the union did not have sufficient  funds: in the treasury the personal  property of individual members had  been distrained upon, that, as a result;  the International Association of Machinists at the last convention at Milwaukee realizing * the inadequacy of  ignoring politics passed a resolution  urging upon its members to take political action and advocating collective  ownership.  I quoted * the case referred to, to  show how quickly the capitalists copied  any legislation of a repressive character no matter where it was originally  passed and complimented B. ol upon  having at least one representative (J.  H. Hawthornthwaite) who was alive  to the workers' interests by the introduction of legislation that was beneficial to . them-..- and amongst others I  referred to the one re the trades  unions. It is true that there was no  representative of ��������� the press at this  band stand meeting, at least I did not  observe one whilst making the speech  hence I presume your reason for making the assertion that neither I nor  any ot "ier Socialist .had entered a  denial, however, as' you reiterate the  statement I feel called upon to take  issue with you and for corroborative  testimony would respectfully refer  you to some of the audience in attendance.  -=You���������have=repeatedly=stated=that  Socialists oppose trades unions, their  words supplemented by their actions  unequivocally disprove this; the last  convention of the party held at Vancouver, Sept. 1002, passed resolutions  urging upon every Socialist to join the  union of bis craft and so far as the  local of Revelstoke is concerned I am  the only man who is not the proud  possessor of a paid up union card.  Furthermore all of the Socialist magazines and weeklies that I read, and  their name is legion, all bear the union  label. We Socialists thoroughly realize the great benefits tliat have lieen  obtained through unionism but contend that it is exceedingly foolish for  the workers to co-operate on the  economic  field   where they are weak  for higher wages and leas hours and  then stultify their actions by joining  hands with their masters on the field  where tbey are strongest viz., the  political field.  If at auy time we err there is nobody who will more readily acknowledge than I but let us prosecute this  fight fairly and squarely on its merits  with justice to all and malice towards  none, refraining from petty insinuations and unjustifiable inuendo characteristic, of a fusillanimity of spirit  which ill accords with a dispassionate  discussion of issues vital to the well  being of the commonwealth. During  the campaign every courtesy will be  shown to candidates of either old  party_ whenever the Socialists have a  meeting and I might conclude by  inviting any member of the Liberal  or Conservative party especially the  nominee of the latter party, Mr. Thos.  Taylor, to debate whenever and where-  ever it is convenient.  Thanking you in anticipation,  Respectfully yours,  J.W.Bennett.  [Note���������It now being clearly understood that the Taff Vale decision is  inoperative here there is no use pro-.  longing the discussion. As to the  attitude of Socialists-towards trades  unions a quotation from page 228 of  the "Fabian Essays on Socialism"  states that such unions taught "it was  their duty to one another to discourage rapid and efficient workmanship  by every means in their power." And  the following extract from the last  issue of the "Western Clarion" cinches  the matter.  v ^Unless they are reached by socialism, the workers, beaten from strike  to "strike, under misguided leadership',  will slowly sink to such a low level, of  impotence, mental and physical, as. to  allow the capitalist class to carry out  and enforce whatever plan it sees fit."  ���������- This matter will be referred to at  length later. We may state that Mr.  Bennett himself is entitled to every  respect. We believe him to be an  honest, although mistaken man, but  even he too much ignores actual- conditions in B. C, which are the only  proper subjects for discussion during  the present campaign.  S. S. Iliecillewaet.  On June the 7th, the old steam boat  Iliecillewaet that had laid on the beach  at Nakusp all winter was floated off  by high water. She swung head from,  shore and, aided by a slight land,  breeze, vanished into the mist that  enveloped the lake that particular  morning. Her boiler was cased with)  brick and one of her cylinders made of  gas pipe.  Without a shout or a cheer from shore  8he crept into the gloom;  Adismanil'.r In k and neiirij* sunk  Bound on her voyage home.  Tbe last of four old pioneers.  She had done her duty well.  But the lack of a guiding hand she felt*.  A* Bhe labored In the swell.  The Columbia, Trail, and old Nakusp,  In a cloud of fire had passed.  But tbe flagship, Illeolllewaet  Nailed her colors to the mast.  Not to the elements alone  Would she give up the ghost;  Butsbe bowed to the will of the klngol kings-  Father time and his myriad best.  She'll stem no more as in day* of yore  The ruth of the mighty stream;  Her skipper no more at his post will stand  To hard a port her wheel.  She headed out for the great beyond  Witb her boiler covered with bricks;  And bergaspipe cylinders how they'l screech  When sbe ferries us over tbe otyx.  And if the O P.R. bave a monopoly that  You can bet as sure as fits,  Instead of getting a ten cent ride  You'll bave to pay four bits.  B.H.B.

The winter had been long; **eous ot  darkness when that .yiiieh wa.s slept In  the cavern of ihe universe before  Brahma had quickened or Vishnu  wanned, or Sivy., who is Mahadeva,  had looked upon the earth.  The garden lay on an island that,  was called Eden In tho place of tho  ocean where now b.gins lhe river of  the Ganges. Ou the horizon to the  west there was a rim of blue peaks  which are the Himalayas, and beneath  them was a thin Hue of shore visible  from the Island. The tides that ebbed  aird flowed from nialnlaud to island  brought voices of the shore and iuton-  ings from the black liuga caves that  are the temples of Sivu, even to this  day. And when the tide was out there  was a path of shallows thut rippled  and beckoned from island to shore  through which none had passed.  There were two in the Garden  ���������when it was the first spring in the  world, the Man and lhe Woman that  5:.* had found iu the forest and who  was like to hlni. And t.hey were created ns the bcas's, the birds and till  that had life in the Garden, fnll-stat-  urcd and of perfect growth with no  blemish; but more goodly than the  boasts, for they were tlt'.cd to stand  upright so that they might look toward the great eye ot . Vishnu, and  within them tho senses and the soiric  ���������was so mingled that they 'could perceive more than the instincts in them  or the elements about them.  The Earth Spirit that was over tho  Garden had placed there all things  that were good for them; fruits to fill  their hunger; springs to quench the'ti  thirst; caves for their shelter from  storms; trees to shade them from the  moon heat; and no beast, bird or  I thing that had life would do harm to  I   th-im  Trnlu the Children to Uaw Joyous Faces XI  \ You Wlsli Beautiful Suns ana Umij. liters.  woman physician, who point3  with pride to the charming  faces of her three beautiful  youngsters, declares that i: i3  the parents' fault if children  _2___.hnve not beautiful, frank and  sunshiny faces.

"Oh, dear," said Brahma Jack, a fine  young cockerel, as he looked through  the meshes of the wire fence which inclosed the yard in which his    family  lived, says an exchange.   "Oh, dear:  how I wish I could go out and    play  with those chickens.   They are having  lots of fun."  "I don't wish you to play with such  low-bred    fowls,"    said    his    mother.

Just then   a rowdy   little    cockerel  came to the fence, flapped his wings  defiantly and crowed.  "Cock-a-doodle-iioo.    Say,   who    are  you?"

For a full moon's length the Man  and the Woman wandered in the forest by day and slept in the mosses or  the caves by night as two children  who wonder up to the sky. They had  conversed with the mild-eyed antelope and the shagged boar, with the  striped tiger and the stealthy jackal,  with the parrot, the hammersmith  and the gray crow; and by cries and  laughter and sounds made into primitive "speech they held converse with  each other, so that each, knew the  thought of the other by sign and  sound.  Then Siva, ruler of the currents ot  heart and brain, looked upon them,  and strange forces of the spring world  stirred in the soul of the Man and  troubled the eyes of the Woman as  they sat Beside the stream in the forest by day; and when the stars came  out their pulses rose to the throbbing  of the. spheres, as rise the tides of the  waters, and they sang and cried aloud  in the night silences for what they  knew not; and when the wind was in  the forest and the Btorm came in from  the sea they cowered in the caves and  felt the beating of Siva's, heart in  time to their own.  Then said the Man, when the morning laughed In the forest and the flowers whispered together: "The stream  calls me to follow it from the forest; come with me for we know not  ���������what lies, beyond."  "But it is well here," answered the  Woman, reluctantly. "I know the  trees that bear the best fruit and tha  caves that can shelter us when the  rain comes. The place of "storms' may  lie beyond."  "The stream calls to me," said the  Man;   "and I hear the deep voice of  the waters shaking the earth when I  lie in the night on the ground of the  cave.   T would find from whence come  the sounds and I would see the world  that-encompasses this garden."  j     And he went forward while she staid  j in the forest.   But when he bad trav-  j eled  with  the  stream  for a day and  ( could almost define the line of waters,  ! a mighty loneliness overtook him; and  1 the retlessness that had se.med to him  i the calling of the waters when he had  ' wandered in the forest, he knew now  ! as the desire for tbe woman whom ho  I had  left  behind   in   his    journeying.*.,  i.and he turned backward  in  his path  this lady's opinion,  Children reflect the emotions, tho  manners and characteristics of their  ciders.

Occasionally I receive letters from  distracted mothers who tell me rues,  extraordinary talcs of baby depravity.

Women are naturally superstitious,  and. therefore, it goes without saying  that charms of all sorts are to be found  in the nurseries of different nations.  hero Is no part of the whole human body that has been moro  constantly abused than has thet  foot. ,  From time immemorial it has  been crushed aud squeezed into  an unyielding case of hard leather, rarely as large as the foot itself  .When in a natural position, and in consequence come all the diseases aud deformities to which the foot is heir,  such as corns, callouses, enlarged  joints, bunions. Ingrowing toe nails  and the breaking down of the arch of  thc foot.  A healthful condition of the feet is  an essential to perfect general health.  A connection exists by means of the  nerves between the feet and all other  parts of the body, including tho brain  itself. Dr. Browu-Sequard, in fact,  tells of a patient who, whenever he  bore the weight of his body on tho  right toe. became violently insane.  Almost everybody can testify to the  miserable stck-all-over feeling which  accompanies the effort to walk in a  tight boot. A celebrated oculist not  long since discovered that au abstlnato  case of sore eyes was caused by wearing tight shoes. When the feet wero  properly cared for the eye trouble entirely disappeared.  Each foot contains twenty-six bones.  In health it is a marvclously hardy  member. Such violent exercises as  leaping, running, etc., cause it no discomfort. To prevent the grating or  jarring of bone with Uone each one is  covered with an elastic cartilage.  Many people havo to give up taking  liencflcial active exercise owing to the  condition of their foot. It is an every  day occurrence to hear a woman say;  "I have to give up walking, my feet  hurt so." A person who never exercises cannot long remain well and healthy. Indigestion, bilious liver and pulmonary complaints set it, old age and  decreptitude are hurried on apace. The  beginning of all ill health and unhap-  piness can often bo traced to wearing  uncomfortable shoes.  The human foot should be just as  sightly and free form deformity as is  the hand. How rarely this is so is exemplified by thc exclamation of a celebrated humorist when watching men  bathing one day at tho sea-shore. "The  ugliest thing in art or nature is tho human foot," he said.  It was said some years ago that managers had great trouble trying to find  actresses to take the part of Trilby, so  ugly and deformed were their feet.  Mothers often allow little ones' feet  to be cramped and squeezed into tiny  shoes, not remembering that the little  bones are soft and easily deformed.  Happily, nowadays both bootmaker  and customer seem to be growing more  sensible, and the: well made, well cut,  broad soled shoe is gradually pushing  out of the market the monstrous toothpick, high heeled article. ��������� Consequently, women are taking far more exercise  especially walking more, than formerly, with accruing benefit to their general health, happiness;and well-being.  Following are some excellent rules  . for the prop.r care of the feet:  . The feet should be thoroughly, wash-;  ed every morning and * evening. : and  wiped carefully dry, especially between  the toes, that hotbed of soft corns.  The toenails should be cut regularly,  but not too often, and never shorter  than ends of the toes.  When buying shoes allow perfect  freedom for: the toes, have the breadth  of the foot measured while you stand  on it, and allow fuliy half an Inch to  an inch more than the length of your  foot  Have no tightness anywhere. What  slight pressure there is should be beneath the instep and on its sides; which  parts are, sometimes spoken of as the  "waist" of the foot.  Have the sole thinnest and narrowest  at the "waist" and broadest at the  "tread."  Don' be ashamed of the size of your  Toot. A well formed large foot ls mueb  "better to look at than a small distorted  one, and remember that well proportioned parts always look smaller than  they really are.  It is only a mistaken standard ot  beauty that represents hands and feet  as disproportionately small. The best  antique standards of beauty show the  KEEPYOURTEMPER.  ttt_r_._   or Passion   ami   Worry Do   Blake  Women 1 *i*cum-Uroiy Old.  ad    temper and    worry    make  moro wrinkles in one night than  hot and cold  bathing and mas-  otge and complexion brushes and  creams and lotions can wash out  in a year's faithful application.  Physicians assort   thai un   immense amount of ucrvo   forco is   ex-,  (tended in every fit of bad temper; that  whon one little part    of the    nervous  system   gets   wrong,    the   face   first  records It.

Moro over, every time she loses control ot her temper sho unhinges ai  ivoriil brain-cell and weakens by several degrees her capacity for self-control.  The oftener she permits herself to Indulge In what she believe., to b righteous indignation the moro frequently  she finds such 'occasions presenting  themselves, for life is full of such Irritating opportunities.  It is theao bursts of passion that tire-  vent women from growing old so 1.0:111-  tifully that they seem to retain their  youth and liko.a tree, becoming moro  attractive with age. A ntuii'.h that  learns how to set itself in an aggrieved  or hard line soon settles in a i-rliu  curve that writes years ot age upon 1.  woman's face and deep lines an accusing and disfiguring wrinkle. There is  no use attempting to reason with a  woman about the evil effects of ill-  temper while she is in an ugly mood.  She knows perfectly well, that it is  bad form; that it savors of the coarse  md underbred: that It is weak and be-  fittling and immoral, and that it hurts  hor cause to lose her temper. But she  does not stop at just that time to think  . about it, and to remind her of the fact  .nly adds   fuel to the flames.  WELL EARNED  jOTLAffl  J.

Letters received by tho Bureau ot  Mines from Government inspectors now ln northern Ontario contain further gratifying reports of mineral wealth discovered. Prof. W. G.  Miller, geologist, writing from , I>ak������  remiskaming, on August 9, says he has  lust been up the Blanche River and several of its branches, to the height of  land. He refers to the stretch of good  agricultural land. 30 miles wide, passed  through just north of the lake. "Then."'*  he says, "rocky ridges begin to crop up.  with intervening areas that seem to bo  good.land. The rocks show considerable variety, conglomerates, diorites.  quartz porphyries, etc. We also found  Jasper-conglomerate, and some hematite copper and Iron pyrites are widely  disseminated, and when the country Is  more carefully prospected I think there  is likely to be important discoveries  of ���������' mineral deposits���������judging both  from the variety of the rocks, and from  the discoveries which have already been ���������  made. * :We visited the Lake Temis-  kaming, sliver-lead mine;' which Is being  worked on quite an extensive scale. The ���������  character of the ore body ls peculiar,  appealing to have the character, and  structure of the rock's similar to that wiV  met with, up the Blanche waters."  The ��������� officials of the* Bureau of 'Mines  regardi.the report of Prof. Miller witli.  much v satisfaction, as showing : that  what is probably another valuable mineral belt has been located in this hitherto little  known  region.  Prof. Coleman, the well-known geologist, writing from Port Arthur, ,say3  he has just returned;- from a trip  through the country between there  and Fort Frances, and back by way,  of Rat Portage. "Everybody," he says,  "is on the qui; vlve for iron ore, and  the band of magnetite and silica known  as the Steep Rock Range has been  traced for many miles. The tunnel through the Atlk-Okan range discloses mucn more: good ore than I expected to see. There is certainly a  large mine of magnetite of excellent  quality in the range. The other ranges  have not yet been proved to contain  important ore bodies, but their great  extent makes it probable that more wilt  be found.  "Thc,'recently-discovered.'.,' iron range  near Dryden was visited, and found  to be several miles in-length, and in  places very wide.. .'The ore is ���������;* magnetite. So far no development of any  kind has taken place. It is interesting  to note," Prof. Coleman concludes, "the  number* of; Americans; some of them  geologists of good reputation, ..who*arc.  studying our Iron ranges, with u. view  to  taking  up   properties."  The Government's large diamond drill  has been loaned to Mackenzie & Mann,  who will use it for some time developing some properties in the Atik-Okan.  iron range.

As hi. class was  large enough to necessitate his stopping  over night in Slocuni, his services were  at once engaged to train those who were  going to take part iu tho jubilee celebration.  The professor was an old young man  Ot sJiort stature, whose struggles with  poverty and a callous public had left  him lean and prematurely bald. He  readily took upon himself the duty offered him bv a delegation of Slocumites  headed by Lem Cadbury, and practice  was fixed for the following Wednesday  evening. Notices were serrt round to  everybody in town, and the result was a  round-up of all the peoplo in Slocum  who sang or thought they could. The  first thing to be done was to fix tlie date  for the celebration. The professor  thought that two months would give ample time to prepare tlio music thoroughly; as it was getting on toward the end of  October, the first week in January would  bo about right. And this date was decided on. Tlie professor spoke blandly  of several fine patriotic choruses and  part-songs which would take well and  be thoroughly up to date, and announced  that at the next meeting he would assign* the parts and begin practice in earnest.  But this was more easilv said than  done. When he came to assign the parts  he found that all the men were bosses  and all the women insisted on. singing:  soprano. In vain the professor assured  the ladies that the second part was fully  as important in chorus singing as the  treble. Mrs. Ketchup, the grocer's wife,  informed him that she would "sing second-to nobody," and the others followed  her lead. And the men were cither too  lazy or too'timid to take a note higher  tt_an D flat. At length the professor  waxed. wroth. He told them he would  try every voice, and that if they did  not take the parts assigned them ho  would wash his hands of the whole affair. **!  Finally, out of the forty-two. female  ���������voices , he selected about seventeen , or  eighteen to sing alto, but as tliey hnd  had no previous experience he 'had to  teach them tlieir parts by the sheer  ���������force of repetition. His success with tho  other parts was not so encouraging.  There was not a true tenor among the  whole fourteen male voices. Somehow  the tenors of Slocum had fought shy of*  the jubilee. But the professor did not  despair.  At the next mo/ting it was decided  that an ode should ;-o composed, to bo  set to music, in hor-.r of the'-town of  Slocum, and this delightful duty was assigned to Lemuel, as having the most intimate relations with the poetic muse.  Next practice night Lemuel produced an  ode of eleven verses, beginning os;fol-'  lows:  "Fair Slocum, dearest spot on earth,  Success to Thee.and Thine!  tWc greet Thee, City of our birth,  And pledge Thee now in wine!"  This was considered a very fine, effort,  and quite the best thing, lie.had hitherto  done. Slocum was as yet'only a town of  some eighteen hundred inhabitants, but  of course it t would grow. But a peculiar  and serious difiiculty arose. Those who  ���������had temperance principles objooted to  pledging Slocum or dny other place "In  wine," and insisted that these sentiment*  must be changed or they would with-.  .raw. This looked serious, so Lemuel  sought the privacy of his chamber and  after another seance with the muse pro*;  iuced the following, from, which they,  could choose:  "Fair Slocum, may Thy woes grow less,  Thy blessings never fail I  We proudly drink to Thy success  In Pieroe's Ginger Ale 1"  ���������or  "O Slocuni, none than Thee more fair,  May Thy glories never fadel  We pledge Thee in ;��������� brimming bowl  Of sparkling Lemonade I"  Everyone felt thai Lemuel Irad done  what he could to conciliate all parties;  but there was so much wrangling as to  which verses to omit nnd which to re;  tain that finally, on the suggestion of  **5iene_er Young, who was something ol  .I'.vag, they compromised by singing tha  whole thing, which amounted to thirteen,  verses���������alas! unlucky numberI   '  However, barring these minor matters,  everything went well. Tlie practices  were well,attended, the weekly meetings  bore their usual crop of love affairs, and  everybody was delighted. The accompanist was pretty Sadie Pendioott, tha  Mayor's daughter, and as sha  gracefully took her place at the, piano  miring eyes in her direction; but. after  practice it was tho professor who accompanied her homo, poor Lemuel feeling  that Ire had not 'the gliQ3t of a ohancs  against so much genius. *  Lemuel a3 pbot avus admired.and envied by everyone, till Professor Water-  house set the ode to music. He was  possessed, of little .originality, and the  tune was a delightful combination of  "Tiro Star-Spanglcd Banner" and "Rock  ���������of Ages;" hut it woii all licnrts, and tho  ladies declared it .-"awfully nice."  As the day fixed for: the celebration  drew near the professor began to grow  .anxious. No tenors hud us yet piit in  arr appearance. Nnnics wero mentioned  ���������of several who sung tenor, and thoso  were sought out hy tire professor arrd bin  minions; hut in spile of being cajoled and I  conicd and bribed wilh prominent' purta  iu tho celebration tliey kept strictly out  of the pimc.   There wns one man in par  ticular tbat had been angled for to no  purpose. This waB no leas a person than  Aaron Pendioott, Mayor of Slocum. He  /.as the fortunate possessor of a rich  tenor voice, which time seemed to make  hore mellow. It was certain that if  Ihey could only get Aaron won over to  the good cause several others would follow in his train. They would be sure to  ret Deacon Lillimug, who sang in a sort  W falsetto; but, as Lean said, "it would  pass all rigiit in a crowd." Then there  vas Dave Stivers, a coffin-maker by  trade, who had a wonderful voice, but  sot the least idea of time. If he could  be put alongside of someone who could  keep liim in tho right key 'ho was warranted to go like a trombone. And there  R*cre two or three others who wore sure  to join once the ice was broken. But the  ���������ueslion was how to get Aaron Pendi-  ���������ott. Every means under the sun was  tried except that of actually carrying  trim to the practice hall: ns Aaron was  i man who stood over six foot two in his  itookings and weighed in the neighbor-  trood of two hundred pounds, this plan  wns left as a last resort.  First Lemuel Cudbury and Ebenezer  _*oung, the schoolmaster, formed themselves into a deputation and waited upon  him, but Aaron said he had no time "to  bother with any of these new lilts';" he  left them for the young folks." Several  rimes Professor Waterhouse had broached  tha subject in tho front parlor, backed  up, of courso, by the fair Sadie, but at  last he was so sat upon that he thought  It safest to drop the subject. Then the  ladies thought tliey might be able to prevail, and a deputation headed by Mrs.  Ketchup and Miss Prinks, the milliner,  fought him out at his place of business,  the Slocum Carriage Works. All their  blandishments wore wasted. Aaron wo*,  obdurate.  All this time the eventful day was  irawing nearer. The singers were all  well up in their parts, and the Slocum  Band had commenced to practice witii  them. Bills were posted far and near,  and notices were printed in all the leading papers. It had been decided at an  early date that ali the ladies were t*.  wear white, and most of them were getting their gowns ready. But as yet there  was no tenor. The professor and his  committee wore becoming desperate. If  tenors could not be obtained before next  practice night the jubilee must fall  through. To try to sing choruses without tenors was like; tiying to make  bricks without straw.  Great needs make men rise to groat oc-  jasions. It was decided to make one  supreme appeal to the flinty-hearted  Aaron, and not to stop wrestling with,  him until lie consented to sing. With  the courage of desperate men, ProfcsstT  Waterhouse, with his two accomplices,  Lem and Ebenezer, bearded the carriage-  maker in his den, and after a two hours'  struggle Aaron consented. to sing, ln  fact, he gave in as the only way out.  Once having given his promise to help,  Aaron went into the. celebration witli all  liis might. Every night he and the other  delinquent tenors whom he had persuaded to join held practices with Miss Sadie  in the front parlor, with such good'results tliat when the final practice arrived  they had their part perfect.  But if the professor believed that his  'difficulties were all over he was sadly  mistaken. When he tried to arrange tho  alto., behind the sopranos on the stage  Mrs. Ketchup and Miss Prinks, who were  getting new White silk gowns, strongly  objected. If they were going to be hidden from the view of the audience tliey  might as well stop at-home. Here they  had faithfully attended every practice  and had consented to sing alto much  against their will, just to oblige the professor, and..now..they, were'going to be  shoved back out of sight, while that  horrid Sirs. Tizzard and that bold minx  of a Naylor girl were put right out in  tire front! They wouldu't stand itl Irr  vain poor Professor Waterhouse used  all the arts of flattery at his comma-nd.  They flatly refused to sing unless they  oould bo seen. To say that thej* had  tho professor in a tight place is but putting it genteelly. They must be pacified.  It would never do-to' have any hitch, and  the celebration only two nights away.  He and Lemuel set the' machinery of  their mighty brains in motion ��������� and  evolved a plan. They would have the  singers seated in tiers upon the platform.  There would be four rows of seats, one  above another, of whicli the two in front  would be filled by the sopranos and altos  in their white gowns, wliile behind them  and forming a background would be the  tenors and basses. This would afford er-  ery singer an opportunity to see and be  Been. At a very small cost the seat*  could 'be put together just for tire eventful evening, ami everyone thought that  when the curtain rose the effect wouM  be fine indeed. To Deacon Lillimug was  assigned the duty of getting the seats  mado.at.orrec, sothatthey-couldbe .*._*_,_  place thc next evening for the final rehearsal, and others of the men were toW  off to decorate the old Town Hall and  get it into such form as would, do honor  to tho great occasion. Every town and  village has its jaek-knife carpenter, and  Slocum was no exception. Tlie deacon  decided to give tho carpentering job to  Daniel Hemphill, a. very deserving man  who was always so hard up that It was  a charity to put anything in his way.  He was not chosen because of his skill as  a carpenter, but because lie was such a  godly man and the father of nine small  ehildTeu. True, he had never been known  to do a satisfactory job in his life, but  are we not told that "He that givcth to  the poor lendeth to the Lord"?  All the next day a mighty' upheaval  was going on in the old Town Hall,  which, by the way, had been the scene  ."if,*a chicken-show a couple of days be-:  f re'. After the sawdust had been removed by'the barrel, the floor was  scraped and swept and scrubbed with all  the energy that Slocuni could muster.  But all the water of Jordan and all the  soap of Slocum could never remove the  odor which hung like" incense throughout  its ancient precincts. Tliat had become  as much a part of the Town Hall as th*  very walls. Small * boys could be seen  ^currying in all directions, 'borrowing  flags,and bunting from various of the  Slocuni merchants, reluctant to lend, but  not daring to refuse. Business was al-  mostsuspcrrded, ns nearly*.all the men in  the village wero tacking up mottoes and  inscriptions, such as "God Bless Our Native Town!" "Slocum, We Rise to Greet  Kieo!" and others. ��������� Daniel, the godlv  parent of the nine small offspring, hni  made the four rows of seats, and tlicr*  they stood on the platform with tlio  Ircsh look of new lumber which wa*  guile inviting.  The final rehearsal 'was a triumph. Not  i single flaw.marred its course. The professor naked the men on the two rear  rows "to sit as softly as possible," as tir*  seats, being only temporary, might not I  be quite secure.   This was a very neces-  lory precaution, as all the basses and  ienors were heavily built men, and it  ���������pas best to 'be on the safe side.  Long looked for comes at lost! The  fiibilee night had arrived. Long before  the doors of the Town Hall were opened  'rowds waited in orderly rows on tho  lidewalk. People from all the neighbor-  Jig towns within a radius of twenty  niles had come to do honor to Slocum.  the building was packed, and hundreds  were turned away disappointed. Profes-  tor Waterhouse "felt that his hour of  triumph had at last arrived, and he cavorted excitedly around, giving orders  and seeing to things in general. When  Lemuel thought of his ode Ire saw Fame  lust within his grasp. And what pen  ran describe the costumes of the performers on that eventful night in Slo-  sum's history! All the ladies wero in  vhite, except Miss Clancy, the dressmaker, who had boon so busy making tho  new gowns of the other Slocum ladies  that she did not get hor own finished.  Sho wore the waist, an elaborate creation, but had to be satisfied to appear in  in old black skirt. But as she sat among  the altos this, of course, would not be  noticed. Every gentleman that wns not  fortunate enough to possess a black coat,  borrowed one, and it is safe to say that  every dress suit in Slocum wns on duty  tut the celebration. All were faultless.as  to collars, ties and coats; but there  ivere various delinquencies*as .to footgear. They fondly imagined that, owing  to tlie arrangement of thc seats, their  feet.would not be visible, so most of  them wore just whatever happened to  feel comfortable. There was a wonderful  assortment of old overshoes, cowhides  juiltless of 'blacking, and boots whose  matched soles and well-ventilated uppers  bespoke tho economy of their owners.  Ebenezer Young, having been troubled  for some time with corns, wore an elaborate pair of crimson plush slippers embroidered on the toes with gold sunflowers. They had been the gift of liis  beat girl the previous Christmas, and besides being gorgeous wore comfortable.  Precisely at half-past eight the curtain  rose upon the four tiers of smiling and  ielf-satisfied singers. The professor  raised his baton amid the hush that pervaded the throng. The singers rose as  _ne( man and began the ode. It took  K>rae time to sing through the whole  thirteen verses, and when they finished  they sat down amid applause which was  ieaiening. Whether it was the applause'  that turned their heads it is impossible  to say, but they forgot to "sit softly'."  Above the clapping of hands was heaTd  **.' sound like the cracking of the roof on  _ winter's night magnified many time*.  Chen followed an appalling crash. It  seemed to the audience that a forest of  block sleeves and white cuffs, surmount-  sd by sheets of music, rose in the air;  then the basses and tenors disappeared  backwards, madly plunging. Alas! for  the fell results of the number thirteen!  rhe seats had given way. The confusion  was frightful. Ebenezer Young, who eat  it the end, tried to stop himself by  dutching wildly at some of the bunting  which decorated the wings. It only  served, however, to hinder his exit a mo-,  ment or two while the audience had a'  .lurred view of crimson and gold-embroidered feet pawing the air. The anna  ind legs of Deacon Lillimug struck out  ,_i- a." vain endeavor to seize a nearby  post, like the tendrils of a honeysuckle'  necking a support to cling to.  The effect upon, the audience was like  ihat of on electric shock. Some were,  thinned, some indignant; some when they  thought of the array of feet so ruthless-.  *y exposed to view, "laughed till they  ���������rried. Old Mrs. Scroggie, who was very  deaf and had not been inside the hall  for over twenty years, (ook it all as a  matter of course, thinking it'..some new  way of celebrating jubilees.  But, more than the dignity of some of  the singers was hurt. Young Mr. Styles,  t rising young'dentist,-was so badly  _urt that a doctor had to be summoned  . n to the stage. Aaron Pendioott struck  nis head on a rusty nail in a piece of  xrard: which the deserving Daniel had  left lying around loose, and seven of the  Unlucky jubilee-celebraitors were carried  to their homes on stretchers. '...,: '  Very soon after -daylight'"'the' next  morning a'tall and portly fisfiire, armed  ��������� with a snake-whip, might have been seen  wui.ing outside Daniel Hemphill's door.  An hour or so later his patience was rewarded, and when Daniel started out he  was met by Aaron Pendicott, who administered as severe a drubbing ns a much  (ess godly man than Daniel might have  looked for. Aaron then made a visit to  L-emuel- Cadbury, with the result that  Lemuel, the poet of Slocum, was incapa-  sitatod for business for the space of a  week. Rumor has it that he also held  ui interview with Professor Valentine  Waterhouse, with the result that that  |entleman has never since been seen ia  *_locum.r^Aaron=fe!t=--that-he=hnd=-boen=  jasely misled and humiliated by these  three gentlemen, and took the law into  nis own hands to obtain satisfaction.  Even to this day it is not wise to allude  in his presence to the Slocum jubilee,  which was his last appearance.  1    Two Easters*    I  s_  :!>.-.  I  Did Burns Write "Comin' thro'  the Rye?"  London "Truth."  Mr. Carruthers Gould, in his clever  ������������������aricatirre concerning a recent election  which resulted in Ure Liberal candidate  ������������������Comirr' Thro' the Rye," 'ia?, I see,  adopted the reading that the '"Bye" was  ���������a cornfield. It has generally been understood that the Rye referred to was the  rivulet in Ayrshire where Burns and his  boy friends teased the girls who were  evading through the stream with their  3kirts tucked up, the damsels preferring  to be kissed rather than to allow tlieir  petticoats to drop into the water. But,  although the fact is little known," there  is authority for Mr. Gould's reading, at  any rate if the lines scratched on a pane  of glass at Mauchline be genuinely by  Burns.    They run: "  "Gin ajbody kiss a body comin' through  thegrain,  Need  a body grudge  a body what's a  body's ain."  When, however, the song was first heard  in London at a. pantomime in 1705, it began, "If a body meet a body going to the  fair." But, although I should not like to  _ay so in thc presence of a Scotsman,  there lias always, I fancy, been a doubt  whether the lines are by Burns at all.  Far-Reaching.

And she sinks back  wearily with a sigh of satisfaction  in her low chair irr front of a bright  little  fire,  for although  the  days  nearly all through Lent have been  glorious and bright with an early promise  of  spring, the  evenings  are   still  chill enough to make a fire very comfortable if somewhat of a luxury.  She hns left them all early and retired  to her own room, for it has been a busy  day, but now the last charity has been  attended to, Easter letters sent, and tho  lost plant of sweet spring flowers. She  smiles as she thinks of its destination���������  a crusty old bachelor that affects to hold  all such pretty things in the same contempt as he does women���������but she knows  the grim- old faco will break, into its rare  and grim old smile at the pretty Easter  greeting on her part, for isn't she a  prime favorite of his? He has even been  heard to remark, or rather growl, that,  "she isn't quite such a fool ns the rest of  the women he knows"���������warm praise from  him.  So now, in her soft yellow silk kimono, she leans back contentedly among  her cushions, and lazily sends up dainty  little rings of fragrant smoke "Irom her  cigarette. She remembers with a wistful  smile how he "hated to see women  smoke," and how vexed he was with her  once for wanting to try one of his, and  how, just to tease him, she had pretended to light it, notwithstanding his fearful threat of "hot kissing her for a week"  if she did, and of how gently, very gently, he had taken it away from her.  It wasn't of her late husband that she  was thinking. Ah I no, how could it be.  For he, good soul, had never objected in  the least to her cigarettes, or, in fact,  to anything else she."did; but, au con-  tr-iirc, in his easygoing, middle-aged way,  thought'everything his pretty young  wife did was as'perfect as he thought she  ���������was herself, and indulged her in every  whim and spoiled her to his heart's content (if 'not altogether to hers), and  then three years ago comfortably and  rpiietly died,"adoring her to the last and  leaving her all he had to leave���������a very  goodly sum.

She  had, within the last three years, seriously thought of adopting a little child foi  her very own, but her friends had smiled  mowingly and advised her to wait a  ���������virile���������that there was lots of time.

And in the meantime she was lonely to  m. heart-sore degree, and missed her kind  husband's care sadly.  But it isn't of him she is thinking now.  So, no!

And she is alone, as  here, in her own room with her thoughts,  but what a different room, what differ-  ant thoughts, and what a different woman!���������for she was but a slip of a girl  then���������not twenty!

The engineers digging the wonderful  tunnel that runs through the great Sim-  alon^mountain���������to-coriii-ect^Switzerland"  tvith Italy are experiencing great difli-  sultics because of the presence of  boiling: water in the mountain. The  water comes from the top of the  mountain and is heated almost to  .oiling point by the friction and  pressure of its percolation through the  limestone beds of the mountain. Before  the tunnel had been dug very far on the  Italian side the heat became so intense  that it was impossible to live irr it. Tire  iiountain was piped, and soon fifteen  thousand gallons of steaming hot water  ivcre flowing out of the south end of the  tunnel every minute of the day and  light. The immense flow was harnessed  md made to drive refrigerating plants  tnd cold air blowers. To-day the tem-  Jfeature of the tunnel has been reduced  ���������rom a height that would have roasted a  nan in a minute or two, anil the atmos-  .here now has the pleasant warmth of a  fune* day. Tlie hot water also drives  pneumatic drills and boring machines,: s'o  that it helps to dig the tunnel as well.  Mainly About People.  A Yankee tourist who called on Rot>  ert Burns's widow, Jean Armour, ������_ few  rears after bis death, had the audacity  to ask her: "Can vou show me anv relici  of the poet?" "Sir," answered the old  lady, with majestic dignity, "I am th*  only relict of Robert Burns'"  Sir William Kennedy, in his book,  "Sport in the Navy," te'lls the story of*  retired boatswain who hired a bov to caD  hrm everj* morning at davbroiik with  the words, "The captain "wants vou,"  merely for the pleasure of saving, "**TeU  him I won't come," and turning over and  going to sleep again.  Among the guests at a dinner in New  York given in horror of Daniel Webstei  was Dr. Benjamin llrandreth, the inventor of a celebrated pill known by hi*  name. A witty guest proposed the following voluntary ton. t: "To Daniel  Webster arrd Benjamin ilrandrctb, the  pillars of the Constitution."  On a recent day's outing in W.stche������  tor County, N.Y., Ernest Haskell, the  artist, was painting a bit of thc greeii  hillside when a farmer came along,  looked at the half-finished water-color,  then gazed, much puzzled, at three flat  pans containing water which thc artist  had put on the ground olosc at hand.  Turning away with a look of disgust, h������  remarked half-aloud: "Homeopath, b"*  gosh!"  An intimate friend of President C-rairl  said to him one day, "General, my littl������  boy has heard that all great men writ,  poor hands, but he says he believes, yoa  are a great man in spite of the fact thai  you write your signature so plainly tha.  anybody can read it." The'* President''  took a card from his pocket, -wrote hii  name on it, and handed it to him. "Giv.  that to your boy," he said, "and tell hia  it is the signature of a man who is nol  at all great���������but that fact must be ke.pl  a secret between him and me."  It is told of Bishop Williams of Con  necticut, for many years presiding bishoj  of the Episcopal Church iu America, wh������  lived all his life a bachelor, that he wai  talking'one day With a young man front  the West about a tax a Western Stat,  was trying to impose on bachelors, th������  tax to be increased a certain per cent  for every tern years of bachelorhood.  "Why, bishop," said the young man, Ma4  your age you would have to pay about  $100 a year." "Well," said the bishop,  quietly, and in his old-time vemaaulos,  "it's wuth if  An Irishman, 'being annoyed by a howl  ing dog in the night, jumped' out of bet.  to dislodge the offender.

Crcswell, so often mentioned by the Charles II. dramatists, whi  died in Bridewell Prison, and left ������11  for a sermon to be preached at her funei������  al, on condition that nothing should b.  said of her but what was well. Tht  preacher got out of the difficulty rathe,  neatly by saying: "All that I shall saj  of her is. this: She was born well,:'sh������  lived well and she died well; for she wai  ,born with the name of Creswell, she live,  in Olerkenwell and she died in Bridewell."  It has been said of the Southern darkey that he has not always a clear idei  ii3 to property rights, but on some poinU  it appears that he is not in the least  hazy. An old colored man in the day.  "befo1 dc wahj"* was given one of his master's, cast-off hats, which he woce with  great pride. One Sunday hkmaster niot  Him coming home from a camp-meeting  in a pouring rain, bareheaded and holding his hat under his coat. Later on th.  master questioned him jocosely: "Why  didn't* you wear your hat, Jerry? Did  you feel the need of cooling your head?"  "You see it's like dis, sah," responded  Jerry. "My head is yours, but my hat  is mine, and nachelly I feels like taking  care ob it, sah."  When Lord Beaconsfield was at th*  height of his fame, one of his most a***  dent supporters in the House of Commons asked as a signal favor that ha  might bring his son to Downing street  and that "the greatest man of the age"*  would give the boy some wise maxim oi  word of counsel which might in after  years be the treasure and guide of hit  life.

Deceased could not. have picked himself up if he received the fracture
