Miss Smith's room, when visited,  was occupied in recitation, and Isabal  Bruce delivered some verses in a most  creditable manner. Her decisions in  regard to tight hieing nnd poudre have  much to recommend them.  When the Her.u.d looked in ut the  class piesided over by Miss Robinson  an exemplification of the new geography was going on. Instead ot the  old time dry Hots of countries, cities  und rivers the youngsters had evidently  been taught to take an interest in the  nutiuat'features of the world. They  eagerly answered questions 'regarding  the flora, and fauna of the dilferent  zones and evidently .have a good  grounding in physiography..  Miss Dent's boys und girls were  engaged-in a spelling_ competition,  sides having been chosen and a woid  being given to each in succession. ,We  saw naif a dozan girls go down' to  defeat on the losing side, but one  little red headed fellow stood--up manfully s'ingle handed for quite 'a time,'  finally meeting his Waterloo, over the  "mystic word "glances." Seeing that  he was a lonely boy on the girls' side  it was not to be wondered at. ,  . Reading Wis going" on when Miss  Fraser's room was reached and here  again careful training was shown.  Both hoys and girls had a due regard  for punctuation and that spelling  leceived due attention was shown by  the majestic word "Constantinople"  shimmering in solemn grandeur on  the blackboaid near the door.  The little tots, of whom Miss Grant  is tha tutelary genius, were bright and  interested in their work. Their tasks,  especially writing, were mo3t creditable and the little sums worked out by  a number bf them were very neatly  ai ranged. \  And then came high noon. The  piincipal rung the bell and in orderly  manner the boys and girls got their  hats and, filing up in the main corridor,  departed for their homes. .The rooms  weie brilliant with flowers us a compliment to, the visitors and a very  pleasant hour was spent wnadering  from room to room. There were no  particular jubilations among the  youngsters when they got outside, for  we think their minds were busy with  the question "what will I do tomorrow"  which will be all to tiouble them for  some six weeks to come.

For  example, a copper ore marketed in  1001 would have earned a* net profit of  27.3 per centrabove nil winking expenses; if sold in 11)02 it would have made  no profits, merely paid expenses. With  profits .so diminished, the mine-owner  produced and sold as little ore as he  could afford to, confining his effort*, to  development and leaving his ore in the  ground until such times a.s thc market  should improve, as it was hound to do  soon; iu fact, ,-it the present writing,  the rise in the market price i.s mar ked."  ��������� That Ibis prediction is correct is  shown by current quotations which  are now as follows:  Closing Up Sale.  The Lillooet, Fraser River and Cariboo Gold Fields,* Limited, is in voluntary liquidation and J. V. Armstrong,  of Revelstoke, B. C is the representative of the liquidators in British  Columbia. The list of properties for  sale includes'the Alpha group of mineral claims (better known as "the  Broadview 'group), situated on Great  Northern mountain above Ferguson,  and. two blocks of land, viz., Lot 1144,  iu'st west of Ferguson townsite. and  Lot 2t40,about two miles northeasterly  from Ferguson on the North Fork of  the Lardeau river at the* foot of Great  Av. 1002  Copper      11.02  Silver      52.10  ���������Tune 11XW.  11.7.1  .-���������0.01'  In the report extended iicfcountH are  given on the Cariboo district, hy the  mineralogist, and on coal and iron  deposit*?, Queen Charlotte Islands, by  Di.T. Rhymer Marshall, together with  the usual i eports of the Gold Commissioner, Mining Recorders, etc.  It is interesting also to note thc discovery of metallic tin in.Cariboo, a  very rare occunence and also that  platinum and osmiridium have been  found in black sand from various places  in the same district. Platinum as a  market commodity is more valuable  than gold and yet it has only been  saved m the Similkameen district and  that to the small amount of $190. The  careful analysis ��������� published legarding  its occurrence in Cariboo should stimulate mine owners there to take the  necessary steps to save this valuable  and useful mineral which, in some  localities shows nearly 8 oz. to the ton.  Taken all m all the Province may  congratulate itself on its present position as a mineial producer its output  being over 49 per cent, of that of the  Dominion, and look forward with increased confidence to an even more  prosperous future.  put up a particularly good game, and  Cao, in his new position at goal, showed  up well. In this part of the field,  however, the whole defence* played  excellently, Hyatt, Coghlan and E.  Dodds handling their, sticks" like  veterans.  Although defeated in the first  spasm, onv boys ii'tend to' make ,i  supreme effort to reverse the score  when thoy meet Itevelstoke on their  own grounds on July HJth.  NOTES.

It  is  said  that wc  "dearly  love  tt  lord," and there arc also many of us  who attach more importance to statements made, or opinions enunciated, by  a professor than to those of any ordinary individual, no matter the extent  of his experience  and thc greatness of  his practical knowledge.   This being so,  the remarks made by Prof. Pritchard  on the subject of watering horses before feeding may be taken to heart by  many readers of this journal who have  not taken any particular* notice of the  reiterated advice given  in  these  columns  always  to  supply water before  feeding with corn, and not afterwards.  In the course of a paper dealing with  some maladies associated with indigestion in thc horse, read recently to the  members of the Midland Counties Veterinary    Medical    Association,     Prof.  Pritchard said :���������"He believed that in  99 cases out of every 100 of colic, taking the general acceptation of the term,  it could be traced to indigestion, and  that, in his opinion, the large majority  of cases of indigestion arose from one  cause���������improper feeding.  "This did not necessarily mean feeding on indigestible food; it frequently  meant proper food given in an improper manner.   So firmly did he hold*, this  opinion that if a case of colic occurred  in  a horse  of  his,  the  first  time  he  should caution thc groom, and the second time he should s.c that the man  groomed for someone else.    He  waa  alluding to the danger   of    watering  horses  after' they  were fed.    When a*.  horse had finished its meal    tlie food'  ought  to  undergo  normal    digestion,  but if, after a horse had eaten a portion of his iood, or perhaps the whole*  of it.it was given a drink of water, digestion was interrupted.    The gastric  juice which  nature was   pouring into  the stomach to* bring about tbe digestive process was weakened.   Fernte-nta*  An editor of Tho Francnis, M.

I hatch all my turkeys with common  hens, and keep the turkeys laying from  March to July. Many prefer to set  the eggs under turkey hens. It is best  to allow the hen to choose her owrf  nest if it is in a suitable place and  where other stock won't bother her.  After she has settled down to business  build a temporary cover over her to  keep off the hot sun and rain. Place  fresh water daily near the nest and  throw down a handful or two of corn  at the same time, but don't disturb  her.  Ifit is desirable to have the turkey,  set in a certain place take barrels, lay  them on their sides and build the nest  therein. These nests should be inclosed in a high lence, so as to keep  the other fowls out. Have this yard  as large as possible with a good grass  sward, Place corn and water thenn  and go away. Occasionally look to  see that each turkey returns to her  nest. Always remove the hen to  these _ nests at night. Place artificial  eggs in the nest and lock her in until  she quiets down, when the eggs can be  given her.���������R. W. Davison, in American Agriculturist.    ���������  Scandal vs. Distress.

There is  a difference, however, in hard cold water pumped or drawn irom a deep well,  or drawn from underground pipes, and  Ihe same water that has stood for some  time exposed in an open vessel, and  so had its temperature raised to that of  the atmosphere; the latter would"* be  harmless.  By far. the best plan is to keep water always within reach of horses, if  it is kept clean and frequently changed. Horses allowed' to drink when  they like, and as much as they like,  drink relatively less than those to  whom it is offered at stated intervals,  whether before or after feeding, and  are the least likely to suffer from indigestion. Thc temperature is always  about right, and it will be observed  that when the horse comes into the  stable he takes a drink, and docs not.  touch it during feeding or immediately afterwards. Some horses, popularly  known as "sippcrs," do not thrive at  all well if. they are restricted to water  at long intervals, but do very well if  they have water always by them. There  are a few horses that cannot be trusted, or that make such a mess with it  that this plan cannot be adopted, but  these must'be put in'the "black list,"  and their intemperance is not a valid  argument against thc general adoption  of the Plan of providing horses with  "free drinks." In any case the water  should be given before feeding.���������Pate-  ley Bridge, in Farm and Home, London, Eng.  work, and If they are ynwllftng to undertake It for a dollar a month they will  have to bo paid two *������r even three.

Green Bone For Fowls.  Fresh grass makes milk. Fresh bones  make eggs. Green bones contain the  right materials for egg production, and  also stimulate the egg-producing organs to action without detrimental ef-,  fects.  In a scries of experiments conducted  at a*West Virginia experiment station  thirty-four hens were divided into two  similar lots, each kept under exactly  the same conditions and each receiving  the same grain ration. One lot, however, was fed fresh green bone and the  other meat meal. During thc experiment the fowls receiving -the fresh  bone laid 3,824 eggs, weighing 405.2  pounds, or an average weight of 1275  pounds per 100 eggn, while the_ meat  meal lot laid only 3,260 eggs, weighing  391.2 potmds, and weighing 11.94  pounds per 100. Consequently, thc  fowls fed fresh bones not only gained  more in weight, but .they also laid  more and larger eggs.  We should, however, avoid using  bones that have on them tainted meat.  If fed continuously it will impart a bad  flavor to the eggs, and -some go sofar  as to say that thc eggs will grow stale  more quickly and will not keep well  even in cold-storage. Protein is what  we are after in selecting - a feed for  eggs, and in no way can it be so easily obtained and at so small a cost as  in fresh ground bone.���������Agricola, in  New York Tribune.   .

At CHesterfield recently it is reported  a woman died owing to exertion occasioned by killing a fowl. The London evening paper that records this*  strange circumstance cannot resist,a  joke on* the remarkable .toughness of  the fowl, but , when we have done  laughing, it must. be * acknowledged  tl^crc .is a serious side to the story,  even  from  the  fowl's point of view.  Far too many poultry are inhumanely  killed, and in-many cases from'excess  of sentimentality on the part of owners, who, not caring to accomplish the  task themselves, delegate it to a boy  who enjoys prolonging the bird's death  agony.      It is perfectly easy to kill ,a  fowl instantaneously, and with no more  effort  than  that required  in  snapping  a thread.     Anyone who has ever seen  a Sussex fattcner at work will wonder  that   the method    he employs    is not  more followed, for it cannot be bettered.      Thc    fowl i3    taken in thc   left  hand, the tips of thc wings and the legs  gathered together, so that it lies quite  helpless   and   cannot . struggle.      The  operator is usually seated, and,   laying,  the  fowl  over his  knees,  so  that  the  head dangles down*- he takes firm hold  of the latter with ihe thumb and forefinger, and gives it a smart jerk. Head  and neck come apart, but the head is  held by the skin, unless, of course, a  clumsy hand jerks too hard and pulls  the head entirely off.      By this method,   a   certain   amount   of   btood  is  drawn from the b'ody, and fills the cavity between head and neck, but none is  spilt visibly.     Death is instantaneous,  but violent   muscular   contraction follows for a minute or two, and thc body  must  be firmly held while  this  lasts.  A novice, killing a fowl in this way,  should deal_ it a sharp  'blow    on the  head, stunning it,, and  then, encircling  "the" neck with' finger and thumb, jerk  at  it  till  the 'joint snaps, but with a  little practice one pull is all that will be  required.     Breaking thc neck will also  kill the fowl, but in "this case no blood  will be drained from the body.     Also  the bird can be hung up by the legs,  and the point of a knife driven into tlie  upper part ot thc throat, the brain is  pierced,   and   death   in.tantly   follows.  The fowl should hang some minutes to  bleed.      If amateurs   at poultry killing  will  carefully follow  thc above directions, they can kill their fowls without  unnecessary pain to the bird and also  without  endangering  their  own   lives  and adding to the hilarity of readers  of evening papers.���������G.D.L.,in Farmer  and Stockbreeder, London, Eng.  Feeding Sheep on Roots.  Thc results of experiments carried  out by the Royal Agricultural Society  of England on feeding sheep on* roots  have warranted thc following conclusions:���������  (1) That feeding sheep on a limited  supply of roots will not fatten them as  well or as quickly as giving them a  more liberal supply of roots.  (2) That feeding sheep* on thc land  without any roots, and making up for  lhe deficiency by giving extra hay with  treacle and water, resulted in considerable financial loss.  (3) That feeding with gorse or furze,  in partial replacement of hay, led to the  production of gocid mutton, but showed  no advantage over hay so far as expense was concerned.

She was always a, most impulsive woman, and I am dreading what  will happen if she is really still alive,  when she learns that there is a Lady Astley nlrendy established here."  "We must he prepared to face that  risk," said Norma calmly. "You may  trust ine to take emu, however, that Srr  Astley is not intiudcd upon."  She gevo the doctor a look which implied that he was going farther with his  admonitions than was necessary, nnd be  took the hint, and bowed himself out,  with another mummied expression of  his readiness to do anything lie could to  help her. ,  When he had gorre Norma flrst gave  I  Astley frowned.  "Oh, he's got round you because ho'������  good-looking," said he impatiently. "I  can't think how women can admire that  type of man. To me it's the very emptiest sort of looks, such as you might  admire in a tailor's dummy, and���������"  Norma, 'who had taken his mutely given invitation to sit down on the dhair  by the bedside, rose and leaned over him.  "If' you don't leave off talking this  minute," sho whispered in the gentlest of  voices,-laying a softly restraining hand  upon his twitching fingers, "I muat go  away."*,- -. * i  Sha was surpris. d by the wistful look  which there was in his gray eyes as he  looked up.  "No, no, don't go away. I won't say  another word if only you'll stay," he  said.  The thrill which shot through Norma's  heart at these words brought the sudden tears to her eyes. What did he feel  for her tben?_ Something more, surely,  than hod been appai-ut all this time under his easy, every- iy charm of manner? Did he, could "e feel for her that  strange something whioh made her heart'  beat faster when she heard bis voice or  met Us ������ye*t .-Was he beginning to lore  her!  Oh Hm.y������. the thought was bitter���������  _ sweet, almost mora than ahe could bear I  As i his hot fingers closed round her  own,-Norma resumed-lier seat,* glad of  the excuse ta do'bo, since she* could  scarcely stand for trembling. Where was  her boasted coldness now? Where was  tlie adamantine hardness which she'had  believed in so firmly, which had made  her think it possible for hor to t-toat the  marriage tie as a mere form? Here was  she stirred to the very depths by a mere'  ~ touch of the hand of the man who was  to have been merely a business partner,  sharing her fortune but not her .heart,  'heart-whole himself, leaving her heart-  whole tool i ���������    ���������       ,  As ehe sat there, listening to his rapidly-drawn breath, Norma felt the'scales  of. ignorance and girlish .folly fall from  her eyes. She knew what" her mother's  unconventional counsels had prevented  her learning before, that a woman is but  a poor, weak thing when nature speaks  within her, ready to bow her head* and  to stretch forth her hand, and to place  "herself 'under the yoke of that instinct  for which she was born, of love and  honor for-tlie first true man who shall  look into her eyes with eyes of love.*'  For it' wns love,'was it not,"that she  saw in his eyes, that .she felt in his  touch, love repressed till then, but apparent now that illness had relaxed lus  hold upon himself?.  Norma felt little doubt of it; little  doubt either, that he who had-known  so much more than she, had'understood  what she had not, that the bond entered  into by her so lightly would soon become  more permanent. And her heart was,  -toni-by- the-pangs-of- Iove_on_the_on_e_  hand and of distress on the other. For  ahe knew, what he did not, of the danger'whicli hung over them, of the shadow  of the woman which was hovering be-,  .tween them and happiness.  "Norma,'.' said he srrddenly, "give me  something to drink.   I'm parched."  "Yes, dear."  As she rose, and withdrew her hand  gently from his detaining fingers, she  felt a mad throb of joy at the tone in  which he spoke to her.-It was an order  that ha gave her, not a request: it was,  so her instinct told her, the tone of a  man who is sure'of his own. She was  delirious with the excitement of this  new feeling as she moved- softly ahour  the room, drew down the blinds, rang tho  bell, and gave her orders for the cooling  drink she wanted. The medicine hud  come, and sire poured the dose into n  glass, and went track to tho bed, with a  loving smile upon her f.ice.

"I perceive from your manner that  you're going lo be a tyrant," said hc_ as  sho rearranged his pillow before he In;,  down again. -  "I shouldn't wonder," said she.  That wits all. Without another word  he took her hand again, and lay quietly  holding it, sometimes looking at her,  sometimes keeping his eyes closed.  She, poor girl, wondered what his  thoughts were, aud comforted herself  with the knowledge that they could uot  be us sad as her own.  ���������And yet, through all the distress, all  the terror she was in, Uie fear that he  might wake to the knowledge that he  was still bound to a woman irr whom he  had lost confidence and who had deceived  liim cruelly, hideously, Norma could not  help feeling, side by bide with this miB*  Ana he felt this even more strongly  than she did: she was sure of this. Love  had given her sympathy, understanding.  She needed no words to tell her thnt, for  good or for ill, for happiness or for misery, it was she, she only, who held Astley's heart.  It was strange that, ill as he undoubtedly was, the one fear that never entered  her head was that death would take him  away from her. A shadow there was  between them, but it was not thatl  When the idea presented itself as a dim  horror to her mind, she scouted it instantly, incredulous, fierce. No: her love  could avail nothing against the possibility of the existence of a living, breathing woman who was his legal wife: but  against tho powers of death she felt  strong. Blind, foolish as the feeling was,  she believed that her love, her tender  care, her trust in heaven, would keep the  hand of death away. .  As night drew on Astley grew Testlcss  and began to mutter incoherently, nnd  to turn his head from side to side on tho  pillow. At flrst thc sound of her voice  would be enough to cheek these symptoms; but as tire evening wore on she  know, with a pang, that ho had lost consciousness of the fact that sire was by  fcis side.  When the doctor came in again, ns ho  had promised to do, Astley seemed for  a moment to recognise 'him, for he  frowned slightly, and turned his head  away; but the next instdnt he began to  speak in a low voice, in a rumbling manner, about his cousin Hugh's dogs, and  about the new stable arrangements.  Dr. Wharles did not stay long; at the  door of the room Norma, who would not  go outside, asked for instruction** for the  night's watching. "You'll surely not sit  up yourself, Lady Darwen," said he.  "You had better let Mrs. Griffiths���������"  Norma shook her head decidedly.  "Mrs. Griffiths can relieve me to-morrow for a little while," said she. "But  nobody but me shall watch by him  thiough tue -night."  "But���������excuse me���������you look too fragilo  for this sort of work!" said Dr. Wharles.  Norma smiled.  "A woman," 9he answered, "is always  strong enough for the work she loves ta  do."  The doctor was touched. He hesitated,  frowned slightly, seemed inclined to say  something, then changed his mind very  suddenly, and left her somewhat hastily.  "Who was that?" cried the patient  from the bed.  Norma turned to him quickly. Without quite recognizing the doctor, Astley  appeared to have been conscious of an  antipathetic presence, and was for a few  moments petulant and difficult to manage. Then, under the influence of caressing woi ds and tones, he sank back on the  pillow, and presently began muttering  once more.  Then for the first time Norma heard  her own name. But he was not addressing her.  "Norma���������Norma," Baid he slowly,  speaking with'closed eyes and below his  breath. "Poor littl girl!'; Then he  laughed a little. "1 won't do it!" ha  said suddenly.."I w< *'t do it! Absurd,  absurd! And yet���������'-' There was a pause,  and he went- on: '/Why not? Why  shouldn't we join forces?  It's mad, mad,*  mad!'

"We will do it," eaid he in a whisper.  "There's a*tie between us already: she  feels it���������she's grateful���������in her. odd way.'  Yes, we'll do it, we'll do it, and defy the  gods! Norma, Norma, little .wife that  is to be no wife���������or she thinks so. Poor  chUd!   Poor child!" ���������.*'���������-*",  ��������� Norma, with her eyes full of tears,  drew nearer to the bedside and laid her  warm hand en ABtley's hot fingers. At  first 'he did not seem to feel the touch,  but presently he turned his head, in her  direction, though without opening his  eyes.  "You shall be happy; wa'H be happy,"  said he. And then, while her tears fell,  he rambled on, with a sudden change to  an irritable tone, about the things he  had to see to at the Haigh, about his  cousin's death, and about bis lame limb.  All through the early hours of the  night he slept very little, and had  snatches of delirium in between. But  Norma remained alone with him, refusing all companionship, watching him,  tending him, soothing him sometimes  with tender, whispered words. And  through, all the trouble and all the pain,  she felt the comfort of his kindness, of  his sympathy, of his dawning love.    '  With the morning came a strange dec-  tor, who said that'Dr. Wharles hod been  called away suddenly, and that he was  taking his'patients for the Hay.  Astley' was conscious when he came,  and Norma thought that an enquiring  frown crossed his face. But he said  nothing, and indeed spoke very little all  that day. But be got some refreshing  ���������sleep, and Norma was able to go away  "an'd*Tget~a���������oouple-of-houra'-rest���������whilo  Martin took her place by the bedside.  And in the evening a note was brought'  to her from Mrs. Wharies, which ehe  opened and read in the sick-roam.    *  It1 contained an enclosure and the following words from Mrs. Wharles:  "Dear Madam���������I have just received thc  enclosed letter from my husband, and I  have thought it bast to seiid it on to you  at once. Yours truly,  TANNY WHARLHS.*"'  Tbm enclosure, which was in a man's  hand, was aa follows:  "Dear Fanny���������Our suspicions were well  founded.   Lottie Is alive, and insists on  going to Darwen Hajgh. -Let poor Lady  larwen know at once. Yours,  "FRANK."  t������* ffiT-sSSS. ^SSr^1  CHAPTER X.  ���������Norma' had been prepared for some  such shock as that contained in the letter, so she folded the paper calmly, pur  it and the enclosure into her pocket, am'  was at the door of the sick-room befon  the servant who had -biought the not(  was out of sight.  "Martin," she called in a low voice  from the tones of which no one couh1  have detected the agitation from which  she was suffering, "who brought this letter?"  "Mrs.' Wharles herself, my lady."  "Is she gone?"  "Yes, my lady, she didn't wait."  "Send someone after her; ask her to  come back and speak to nre. And, then  you will take my place by Sir Astley till  I come back."  Martin ran downstairs, and Norma,  unwilling to return to Astley to answer  questions, remained outside tire sick-room  door till she heard by the sounds below  that the doctor's wife bad entered the  hall and been shown into the drawing-  room.  Then Martin came up, and Norma, outwardly calm but inwardly agitated as  .-"iie had never been before, went down  wi*-***,  -.-������������������-- - " ���������  __><��������� ..������������������- _-_.i-t.i__e ana across the cold,  bare hall to that gloomy apartment of  state which betrayed, as rro other room  in the big house did, how long it had  been without feminine occupation.  A footman was lighting the heavy old-  fashioned jjlass chandelier which hung  from the middle of the lofty painted ceiling. The lighting un showed yellowish-  white and gold walls, with somo tarnished gilding; rows of choirs placed  stiflly against the sides of the room, interspersed with sofas and couches, all  swathed alike in washed-out brown hol-  land coverings; tall glasses which reflected each other in endless weird depths of  glimmering gas-lights arrd spectral hol-  land furniture; tables which held nothing; a brown Holland harp; a brown lrol-  land piano.  In the middle of the floor stood a tall  woman in black, whom Norma recognized, as she had been pointed out to her  by Astley at the station. A cold-look-  Ing face, with aquiline features and hard  black eyes, a.languid and all'ccted manlier; these were her most striking attributes, and Norma was not surprised at  ABtley's prejudice ngainst her.  "Mrs. Wharles?"  The doctor's wife put out a limp hand,  with her elbow raised very hij;h.  '���������Yes." *      ���������  There was a moment's pause, as Norma invited the visitor to be seated; but  the footman, having by that lime finished his task of lighting up, left thc  room, and the two ladies faced each  other on the sofa.  '���������I thought," brj-nii Mrs. Wharles, in  a mincing tone, "Unit 1 had better lose  no time. So I didn't even have the car*  riage ordered round. I came myself ������n  foot at once."  "It was very kind of you," said Norma with a little coldness. The woman's  air of mingled patronage and affected  languor was intolerable.  "Of course it is very dreadful for you,  and my husband and I both feel for you  sincerely. But at thc same time there is  my sister to be considered, and of course  she has every right to be recognized as  Lady Darwen," went on the doctor's  wife, serenely.  This was rather too much, and Norma,  who saw that Mrs. Wharles intended to  presume upon her own mild manners and  quiet tone, began to p'crceive that she  must assert herself a little. She laughed  drily.  "A woman who has laid a cunning plot  to deceive her husband by pretending to  be dead may find it rather difficult to  justify herself," she suggested. "Especially when ahe is more than suspected  of 'having deceived him in other ways."  Mrs. Wharles reddened slightly and  became a trifle less off-hand in manner.  "Lottie was always a wild creature,"  said she, "and not like other people. That  was one of her charms."  "I'm afraid Sir Astley is hardly likely  to appreciate these particular instances  of-it!"  "You are prejudiced, very naturally,"  Baid Mts. Wharles with vivacity.  "I dare say I am. Sir Astley happens  to be prejudiced in the same way."  "But he won't be able to divorce her,"  eaid Mrs. Wharles, quickly recovering her  ���������elf-oonfidence.  "That I'm convinced of."  ' -"H-yil Its the beat juda^-aMia-V". said  Norma quietly,*  Uu doctor* 'wife __9okaft at ber, and  after * pauae, spoke in a much gentler  ton-st  ��������� Ton mustn't *ba surprised at ay taking my sister's part,"-she said, "especial*'  ly as I was always very fond of Lottie,  end proud of her. , But I have every wish  to make things as pleasant as we'ean for  you too.

Mrs. Wharles .went on:    *  "And I quite see ttiat Lottie has be*  Staved foolishly, wickedly. But she' was  frightened when she heard of the proceedings against her, and took this mad  way out 'of* the difficulty."  "Who helped her}" asked Norma suddenly, ,"  "Oh," I don't know. , Our old servant,  I think. I know'my mother and my other sister were away: ,they would never  have allowed her to do such a wild  thing."  ' "Well, it will all have to be very closely enquired into,"'said Norma with decision.    " i    .  '   ��������� ''  "Of course. Only unluckily for you,"  said Mrs. Wharles, her tone becoming  rather aggressive again,' * "nothing that  they may find out about her deceit can  alter the fact that she's Sir Astley's wife,  and you'are not."  ��������� Norma was stung to the quick. She  dared not answer. Mrs: Wharles went  on:  "You'll excuse my speaking plainly,  won't you? I always think it's best.  Now poor Lottie is sorry and ashamed  of herself, and most anxious to return to  ber husband and explain things."  "I can quite understand that," said  Norma frigidly.  ���������A-sudden-illuminating_ flash _of_intelli-_  genoe rfiowed her' a possible reason for  the action taken by the doctor and his  wife. She conceived that, this Lottie,  whether innoeent of the charges brought  against her or not, had grown tired of  her husband, whose slender allowance  had not been sufficient to provide her  with any great amount of luxury, and  had determined, when deceiving nhn b\  her pretended death, io disappear from  his sight forever.  And Norma thought it probable tha!  it was less by the. wish of the ���������Aromas  herself than by that of her greedy and  ambitious relatives that she now proposed to coma to life again, and, with  the help and connivance of these aanrc  relations, make it impossible for Astle\  to prove his charges against her, and n<*  settle herself upon him again now thai  he waa in a. brilliant position.  For if, she argued to herself, the wife  had really been as unscrupulous and n**  greedy as her sister evidently^ was, slu  would not have been so retiring and  modest on the occasion of her appear  ance at Oxford. For that, the wonri*  who had followed Astley and hersr'  would prove to have been t'he unfortn  nate Lottie she could scarcely doubt an\  longer. ,    *  Mrs. Wharles -sighed.

Toronto, April 20.���������Sir Oliver  Mowat, Lieutenant-Governor of On*  tario, died on Sunday at 9 45 a.m.  Peacefully, almost imperceptibly, thi  semi-conscious sleep iu which Sir Oli  ver Mowat has lain since Wcdncbdaj  night became at six minutes to 10 yes  terday morning the dreamless sluinbei  ot death. The aged statesman wa'  surrounded by his. family, all oi whon  had remained within call since thej  were summoned to his bedside at mid  night on Wednesday, a long vigil o  eighty hours. They were Sheriff am  Mrs. Mowat, Mr. Arthur and Mrs  Mowat, Mr. C. R. W. Biggar, K.C  and Mrs Biggar, Mr. Thomas Lang  ton, K.C., and Mrs. Langton, and Misi  Mowat. Dr. Primrose and Dr. Temple were also present. Sir Oliver die  not regain consciousness. His vitality, tlie physicians said, was wonderful, and his life simply ebbed away.  The first public announcement of thi  death was the hall-masiing of the flag  on Government House, and it was not  long before on all public buildings anc  many private ones Hags were at half-  mast and spread the news throughou'  the city.  Premier Ross called at Government  House in the afternoon, and it was aftei  a conference with him that the abovt  announcement regarding the state funeral was made. This morning tht  Premier will arrange with Colone  Otter the details of the ceremony. Thc  members of the Legislature, City  Council and other public bodies anc  also many societies will attend. There  will be a military escort, composed oi  a detachment of Royal Canadian Dragoons, mounted. lt was not thought  advisable to parade all the city regi  xnents. At the request of the famil.  six members of the Toronto Caithness  Association will act as bearers. The]  are Messrs. D. Rose, sen., Past President; Wm. Banks, sen.. President,  Daniel Ross, Vice-President; Donald  Inrig, Treasurer; D. A. Rose, jun., anc  Gilbert L. Sutherland.  The City Council meets this afternoon in regular session, but the Mayoi  said last night he thought they would  adjourn till Thursday. . He intend:  to request the citizens to suspend business during two or three hours on thi  afternoon of the funeral. The Leg-  ��������� islature will assemble to-morrow afternoon and proceed with' business, but  when they rise will adjourn over Wednesday.   _  Oliver Mowat was born at Kingston on  July S3, 1820. He came of good Scotch  stock, being one <~f the Mowats oi  Bucholie. Caithness-shire, Scotland, thc  restorers . and owners of the ancient  castle of tbe Vikings in Scotland. H\s  father, John Mowat, was a soldier, who  had seen stern service under Wellington during the Peninsular wars witb  France. * His mother was Mao  Levack, also of Caithness. The  elder Mowats lived at Carisbay, which  place they left in 1816. coming to Canada' and settling in Kingston. The  fruit of the marriage was'hve children,  three sons and two daughters.

A WOMAN'S LOYE.  "Paul Car'.ngton had been away from  ~ lis home for ten long years.   A great  *   misfortune had come upon him early  jn life, and he had sought relief from  it-__ningled feelings of remorse and shame  in strange lands.    But discontent fol-  *'    -Sowed him everywhere he went.   Now  *���������*.���������      -lie was   back once   more to   try the  - .soothing quiet of his old town.   At last  "-    _.-__be seemed to have found what he bad  -sought for ln vain ia foreign lands���������  *_reet and peace of mind.  He wondered If Grace Dean was still  ���������-"^Tving at her old home in the quiet  'little village nearby; but he refrained  from making inquiries about the girl  that everybody In    tbe neighborhood  -knew he had jilted for a vile adventuress.      Somehow    hiB surroundings  - reemed to bring her back to his mind,  -and  he often   found himself thinking  ���������nf their youthful love, with a longing  -���������to know what she was liko as a grown  ^lp woman.      H. knew she must    be  ' *>eautiful, for she had given promise of  - "j_>ea.nt-' M a Elrli 'fhen he had known  "Iter.  As he was strolling along the road,  that led to the vlllajre. in the quiet  ���������afternoon, he came suddenly upon a  -���������fjony carriage, driven by a young lady.  60 absorbed w.ts he with his thoughts  that she was nearly upon his before he  ���������was aware of her approach, and as he  Siurriedly stepned aside to let her pass,  ie looked full into her face. Their  -eyes metr^iud-h~e_r~ecognlzed ~ Grace-  Sean. A gr<*at flood of feeling came  over him, but ere he could speak or  move, she was past him. A faint odor  of femininity filled the air about him.  S_������  stood   motionless  for  some time.  ��������� -drinking in  t'.re sweet fragrance, and  ��������� --then, with tho full conviction of his  "3ore upon him. he hurried home and  ���������.������hnt himself in his study. For hours  "he sat as one in    a dream, thinking,  -thinking, thinking.. Then he arose and  ���������went    to hi3 writing-desk.     He   had  eome  to  a sudden    resolve,  and    ha  wrote the following letter:  ' Oak Knowl, September 28, 18���������  Dear Grace: ���������  '. I know the gulf between us ts  wider than eternity.   Not even hope,  ���������with me. dare even attempt to span It.  ��������� Only death can bridge It over. Then  "���������we must all forgive each other If we.  ��������� 'lope for the forgiveness that shall lead  -us Into the happiness never known  <*this side of the grave.  When I drifted away from you and  ��������� your great ior?. I thought I saw hap-  .-piness ahead of me, even greater than  il had ever known.   But oh, how sadly  .mistaken I was.  I have been pursuing a bubble all  ���������these weary years. It was all gilt  and glitter, and to my blinded eyes,  -was worthy of all tbe Jove I lavished  ���������upon it. But alas! it burst! as all bubbles must, and there is nothing left but  the ashes of a burned out passion. Not  one happy memory Ib left to reward mo  lor my reckless devotion. All it has  left me is a heart full of sadness and  regret.  After years of ceaseless travel, seeking for the contentment I cannot find,  I am back again in my old home; but  tt is anything but a happy home-com-  Ing. It brings b���������'r* memories of those  early years, when you and I were  happy young lovers, without a sorrow  or a care in the world. ri tose are  happy memories. But then, too, it  brings back memories of her who came  between us and wrought us so much  woe. And those memories aro wormwood to me.  With all her beauty, she was a very  wicked woman, as you no doubt have  heard, and led me a devil of a lifo for  three years, then discarded me, as she  would have discarded a pair of soiled  Gloves.  She Is dead now T have heard, and  ���������with her that bitter past is buried.  "Look not mournfully Into the Past.  It comes not back again. Wisely improve tho Present. It is thine. Go  forth to meet the shadowy Future,  .without fear, and with n manly heart."  Those words have Impressed themselves upon mo with the full force ot  their meaning, and as they strengthened Longfellow, so have they  strengthened me. Henceforward I  Bhall strive to live only in the Presents and let the Past bo dead, and  speculate not out the Future, but take  what it shall bring to me from day to  day.  I had thought to spend some tlmo  here, looking after my much-neglected  estate; but when you passed me today, Buch a flood of thoughts and feelings came over me that I knew lt  would be Impossible for me to live so  near you, with so much to remind me  of our by-gono happiness.  When I looked Into your face, 1  thought of what life might have been  for me���������of all the happiness that  would have filled these years of mis-  cry, hnd I been faithful to you. I felt  like crying out ln my despair, and  flinging myself at your feet. Imploring  you to forgive and forget. But I cannot hope for that���������I have no right to  hope for it���������the die 1b cast, and tomorrow I leave this place forever.  I cannot trust mysslf to see yon  again; but I must tell you���������though you  will not believe me now���������that I love  you as I never loved you before���������with  my whole heart and souL To me, ail  that is sweet and pure and lovable in  woman, Is centered ln you. You are  my ideal, and you alone will I worship unto the end���������and now, good by!  PAUL CARINGTON.  With trembling hand, he wrote the  address he had written so often in  years gone by, and gave the letter to a  years gone by, and gave the letter to a  servant to post.  When he was alone, he bowed his  bead upon his arms nnd lived over  again, ln.hlB fancy, the years since he  bad drifted away from Grace Dean, and  indelibly emblazoned In burning letters upon the memory of those years  (was the one word���������"regret!"  Divining from  his masters countenance, and from the name on the envelope, that the letter was of unusual  Importance, ths servant took it upon  blmself to deliver It at IU destination  at once.  Grace, herself, answered his ring.  The servant���������the hand-writing   an*  ell, told her at a glance from when  the missive had come.  . Bidding the man wait, she broke the  eeal, and pale as death, read what she  bad been longing to know���������that Paul  still loved her.  Without hesitation, she threw a  wrap about her shoulders, saying te  the servant: ....   .  "1 will go back with you."

THE END OFA ROMANCE  the Mysterious Hero Turns Out to lit a  Dolect!v(*.  At a large wedding reception recently the attention of a couple of girls waa  attracted to a rather fine looking man,  whose prematurely gray hair and clear  cut. features combined in giving him a  distinguished appearance.  "1 see him at nearly every large wed-1  ding I go to," said one. "I wonder who  ho can be. I've asked lots of people,  and nobody seems to know. Yet ho  seems to bo invited everywhere."  "Yes, I've noticed him, too," said the  other girl. "While ho apparently goes  to all tho big weddings, he doosn't  seem to know anybody; or, at least,  I've never scon him talking to anybody. He's such an Interning looking  mun, too. I'd lovo to moot him. Ho  looks like a man who had lived and-*  and suffered."  A young man standing near, who  couldn't help overhearing this conversation, laughed.  'Tcrhaps I can throw somo light  iipon the Identity of your mysterious  hero," he said.  "Do you know him*." exclaimed both  girls In the same breath.  "Well, I can't say that I exactly  know him," replied the young man;  -but I know who ho is. He's a private  detective. Perhaps you have noticed  that he never strays far away from tho  tables on which the presents are displayed. That's what he's there for���������to  watch them.

A young man who looked as if he  might bo about twenty-five years old  was sitting in the waiting room of tho  depot. On his knee was a. year-old  baby. Presently the baby began to cry,  and the awkwardness and helplessness  of the young man were so marked as  to attract general attention.  At this point one of the waiting passengers, a fat and amiable looking marr,  crossed the room and sal dto the distressed baby tender.  "A young woman gave you that baby  to hold while she went to see about her  baggage, didn't she?"  "es."  ���������"Well, now, I knew it as soon as I  saw you.   You expect her back, I suppose?"  "Of course."  "Ha! Ha! You are looking for her  every minute, ain't you?"  "I think she'll come back."  "Ha! Ha! Excuse me, but I can't  Iielp laughing. A woman once played  the same trick on me. I was ln Chicago. You're caught, young man. Sho  took you for a hayseed."  "Oh, 6he'll come back," answered the  young man as he looked anxiously  around.    .  "She will, eh? Ha! Ha! Ha! What  makes you think so?"  "Why, because she's my wife, and  this is our flrst baby."  "Oh���������un���������I see!" mutterd the fat  man, and he was in such haste to get  back to the other side of the room that  he nearly fell over a passing pug dog.  ���������.Buffalo Enquirer.

Though the voice of the speaker had  ft sharp, rasping tone, it was not altogether unkindly in its accent, and the  twelve-year-old boy, to whom it was  addressed, stopped short in his headlong course, hastily brushing one of his  ragged sleeves across his tear-dimmed  eyes as he faced the other.  He had a thin, pindhed face, and his  ellght figure was clothed in a well-  worn suit of ahout three sizes too largo  for him, bo that he presented anything  but a comely appearance. Ho was following tho wheel-path leading across  lots from Dcnby main road to the village, wihon he wns suddenly accosted  by liim who hnd steppped from thc  bushes overhanging the pathway.

"I say, bub, what's the matter?" he  asked, for though the boy had dried hia  tears he had not answered his first  question.

"That's a lie!"cried the old charcoal  burner bluntly���������"at least while ol'  Noah Dahvers lives. Come over to my  sod palace an' share a livin' with me.  You're welcome as long as you'll stay."  The boy) who, until we know a'better name for him, we must call Curley,  had often heard ot the old charcoal  burner am a strange, eccentric outcast  from society, but he was not loath to  accompany him. '  After going a short distance .they  eame Into a clearing in the growth of  gray birches, where a dark cloud of  smoke and the emell of burning sod-  and wood* betokened the vicinity of a  charcoal kiln. Near by was the queer,  odd-shaped abode of Charcoal Noah.  This last looked like the roof of a  small building with the eaves coming  to the ground. The sides of this A-  ���������haped structure were made of inner  surface of upright sticks covered * on  the outside with a heavy coating of  sods. One end had been left open, and  this faced the side of a perpendicular  ledge at the base of which a fire-was  burning cheerfuliy. Though the only  couch the occupant knew was a pile of  straw, the sod dwelling was more -comfortable than It appeared at first sight.  In such a habitation as this Charcoal  Noah had passed more than twenty  years of his life, tending his kilns and  growing much griraer and blacker each  succeeding season, until it was no  wonder he was almost like a piece of  charcoal himself.  Friendless and homeless, Curley was  only too glad to accept of the old man's  rude hospitality, and he began to do  such work for hlrn as he could, which  service was gladly received by the  other. . <   So a week passed, and though there  was every indication of the near approach of snow, and wintery weather,  the,, old charcoal burner declared he  must prepare and burn two kilns more  before ho quit.  As the wood had got to be chopped  for the purpose, this meant considerable of a job, which would take nearly  two weeks of time. Now, after a kiln  baa been built and set on fire", though  is has to be continually watched, night  and day, the old burner had generally  intended to cut his wood for the-following one during his Intervals of  waiting on the first. The weather, however, had prevented him from doing  this for the preceding days, so Curley's  the jury and began telling the story to  the judge.  The judge, in a bland and courteous  manner said:  "Address ymimelf to the jury, sir."  The man made a short j>ause, but.  for him, as, after a .little showing the  lattter managed to tend the kiln almost entirely days: Then during the  night watches he took his turns in the  lonely vigils, climbing the sides of the  notwithstanding what had been said to .smoking kiln whenever it was neces-  j sary and "stamping in"  the sods, as  I had to be done as. fast as the wood un-*  1 derneath waa charred by the Rro so as  to settle away.  ���������;.'���������'���������  One afternoon there was a visitor to  tha "bush," a Mr. Preston, who bought  coal and had come oyer to look at somo  housed near the kiln. Ifo wn3 accompanied by Romanzo Harden, who had  come 10 show hlrn the way, and his  own son, about' the other's ago.  "Whew!" exclaimed Komanzo, at  sight of Curley, "If bore isn't Ihat  poorhouse boy who ran away from  fathcr last week, and he hns lotfked  everywhere for him.

The judge w-s then more explicit,*  and said to him, "Speak to the jury,  sir; the men sitting* behind you on tho  benches."

"Thought you did a smart thing, running away from us, didn't you, you  lazybones?"  "I didn't run away," replied Curley.  "Your father said he didn't want ma  any longer."  "Oh, such a atory! But perhaps you  like burning charcoal better. It is  such nice, clean work! And look.  Will, see what a fine house they live  ln.   Let's take a peep inside."

Though young Harden wns four  years older thnn tho youthful coal  burner, he showed by his notions Ihat  ho wns somewhat afraid of him, or it  may be he feared the iippouranco of  Noah Dan vers, for ho left the hut at  once.  Mr. Preston wns down to tho coal  Bhert*. nnd Romanzo. looking about as  If for some mischief ho could do, his  . attention became fixed upon the coal  kiln, when he said:  "Let's see you climb it, Rnggy."  "1 can't go up now."  "Afraid, eh?    You're a pretty coal  burner!    But perhaps -you're afraid of  soiling those nice clothes of yours.'-'  "The kiln Is too near������tlme for drawing for anyone to go into it," replied  Curley, appearing calmer than he really felt.  "Bah! you say that because you're  afraid to. I guess if old Noah knew  what a little coward ydu are ho  wouldn't keep' you long. But perhaps  you will go up now, just to show ub  .how spry yoii are," and catching Curley's cap from hU head he flung it to  the top of the kiln.  The cap was an old one, but it was  nil that the poor boy had. and he could  not aiford to lose it. Stifling the anger  nnd grief that he felt, he said:  "I can get it with a pole," and started  after one that lay on the ground near  Iiy.  "You are too bad, Romanzo," declared Will Preston, who had no sympathy  With him in this disgraceful affair.  "Think so, do you?" cried the other.  "Well, while the raggy Imp is about lt  lie can get two caps as well as ono,"  and* without considering what he was  doing, Romanzo seized the new cap belonging to Will, to toss that upon the  crest of the smoking kiln.  Without realizing what risk he was  taking ln his excitement over the prospective loss of his cap, Will rushed up  the' steep, treacherous side of the kiln,  and though he sunk ankle-deep ln the  dried' earth every step, he reached the  bollow depression on the top where hla..  cap lay, half covered by the fine dust  and cinders.  Then, as'he stooped to pick up his  leap he suddenly felt the footing beneath him yield, and he sunk downward Into the burning pit, with a  ehriek of terror upon his lips.  Curley and. Romanzo-had witnessed  this fearful'mishap with looks of horror, and as the unfortunate youth was  enveloped in a cloud of Are and smoke  and cinders the last uttered a cry of  dismay.  Mr. Preston's, attention was drawn  to the frightful scene by the cries) but  be was too far away to rescue his son,,  If that were possible, though he started  for the kiln at the top of his speed.  Will, feeling the kiln caving in,  scrambled to reach a place which  would vbear .his weight, only to sink  deeper Into the fiery pit, which was  liable to break forth into a light blaze  at any Instant.  But by that time Curley sprung up  the side of the kiln, and throwing himself flat upon Its side, he reached out  his arms to grasp Will's outstretched  {bands.  The smoke was pouring up around  him in dense, black volumes, and the  air was filled with sparks which caught  upon their clothes and caused them to  gasp for breath.  Curley"proVed his grlttlness wellrand"  with all the strength he could muster  be pulled Will out from the deadly  crater, and together they rolled down  the side of the 'clln. Just as the flames  burst forth with a loud road.  Mr. Preston bore them in their half-  *incon8Clous state away from the heat  of the fire, and at that moment Noah  came pufllng nntl panting to the place.  Curley.and Will soon recovered their  cpnscl6u6ness, though they presented  a sorry appearance, blackened and  burned as they were.  Explanations quickly followed, during which Romanzo stood by trembling  from suppressed emotions over tha  contemptible act he had perpetrated,  expecting the punishment he deserved  for his misdemeanor. At the same time  Mr. Preston ;was praising Curley  heartily for his heroic action, and from  that-moment the poor, orphan had  gained a second friend, whn waB to  prove Invaluable to him In the years  th at were to come.

Toward 10 o'clock, when nearing the  gate of the pasture, a light appeared  ahead and to the left of our course.  'As we came up to the fence we eaw  that it was a lantern hung on a fence  post some twenty rods oft the road,  nnd swinging in the wind. By Its fitful flare a man ln a long ulster was  digging in the hard soil with a short-  bandied spade.  The man engrossed in his task had  not seen, or, at least, had not noticed  us.

He asked if he might  ���������go, too.  The two men went to a pastor's  etudy, and the section hand, requesting him to produce the largest . pulpit  bible, was solemnly sworn, with his  band on its open page, to abstain forever from all Intoxicating beveragoa,  "That is a long while," waa Lara-  (sray's comment.  .   "Do you keep the bible locked up?"  asked -the-Irishman.-anxiously.   All men may be liars, but alV IU")  are not men.  "Tbe building is always closed when  gaot in use," replied the pastor.  "Why did you ask him that?" demanded Laraway, when they bad come  nway.  The Irishman marveled at Che question. "Why, don't you see?" said he.  "It's because If I can't get at the book  When the t'Irat is on me I can let off."  Laraway bought a bible, and be  -promised himself with hla band upoa  it. that he would taste oo liquor for  six months. Then be came home and  went to work. He wrote the date la  the book, and kept the bonk in bis  (pocket. He kept the promise to the  letter and the day.  After tbat spree he made an entry  on the flyleaf, agreeing to abstain for  one year. This time he did not carry  the hook in his pocket; he took it out  on the rangro and burled it.  ,  "That crazy Irishman's notion about'  getting let oif if he can lay hands on  the book don't go for a cent before me  now," said Laraway, "but before the  year Is up I'll be a crazy Irishman myself."  He made no secret of the measures  (he took against himself, and when  s. me ono offered to keep the book tor  hirs in a secret place, said: "It would  do no good, if T wanted it when the ap-  dr> no good. If I wnted it when the appetite is upon me I'd have It if I had  to kill my best friend. '   ���������  The one year pledge proved too hard  to keep. Twice since ite making at intervals of six or eight months Laraway  lad dug up his bible, canceled his  pledge and got dru'nk. To:night we  had seen him overcome for the third  timo.  ^_"S?hy dont some  ������f   you   make   a  sneak on hie bible and cache lt where  le can't find It?" asked the Kid,  "Oh, he would kill the man, that  touched it, and get drunk just the  eame," declared the cook.

"What, me?" said the Kid, in a snaky  volco; "I'm only a boy," aud he .went  away to bed.  iAs the clock struck for midnight the(  mcss-houEo door was flung ct-en���������as I  thought by a stronger gust of   wind,!  Turning to l**:ok, I found myself look-1  lug Into tho nozzle of one ot Laraway'a"  guns.   Ho stood nt tho doorway, with  his eyes afire and a gnu In cither hand.  "Which one ot you dngs has git my  bible?" ho cried,   "it's not In the hole,'  and I'll give you jtt->t len seconds lo  produce lt."  "Now, Laraway," snitl thc foreman,  In a smooth tone, "you got the drop  on us all right I tell you it's God's  truth that not a man here knows any- '  thing about your bible. We thought  you had dug it up and was half way to  town by now." -'  It looked as though some one "Was  ���������going to get hurt. - Every man in the  room wae looking square at Laraway.  And to every man lt seemed that the  pistols were looking square at himself.  The Kid always was cindy���������and  freckled. Half an hour before he had  slunk off to bed. Now, juet at the rig������t  moment, he elunk up behind Laraway,  jumped on his back like a cat, put both  Ills freckled hands to the man's throat  and brought him down. The guns  went oif through the roof.  Mr. Laraway was tied to the bed that  night and many nights after. He had  a eevere attack of brain fever, from  which he came out as weak as a baby.  During his convalescence he never  spoke of the bible, and ?ie had an aversion to liquor; During those days a  etrong and quiet friendship grew up  between Laraway and the Kid.  The "old man" wae visiting bis  ranches this season, and took a groat  interest In'the sick man, told hlrn to go*  off somewhere and get well and hearty  before trying to work again; _ald his  pay would go on exactly as though be  were in the caddie.  But Laraway said: "I've no place to  go that I like half so well as thij old  ranch, and no friends so good as  these." So he stayed around camp and  made hair bridles and cinches, and*  read books, and helped tha cook, and  did all those* things which a cowboy  does only when he is invalided.  Among the visitors whom the *V>W  man'* entertained at the ranch thab  spring was Mitchell, the famous mind*  reader. One Sunday .afternoon he volunteered to "* show the boys what be  could do: We hid objects all over,the  place and'kept bim cbaslag around for  an hour.'   ' *  "     '  At last Mitchell*said: "This la all  dead easy.for me; it doesn't amuse me..  Ton.all.know wh'ere^these objects axe  placed, and the trail Ib hot' to then.

'  tlclpants, "you fix your mind on something whose whereabouts i_> known,  only to yourself and which you don't,  want me to find."  He took tbe Kid's hands and began  to wander around the buildings. Twice  be circled the corals, then, getting hia  bearings, made a bee-line for a small,  bowlder-strewn biitte a quarter or., m  milt away. By this time he was falrty  dragging the reluctant Kid along.  The mind reader halted at the Brat  -big bowlder and the boys qudekty  turned It over.

PILORIU OAKS.  That's All.  A Queen's Thoughts on Love.  The Queen of Rotimania's latest literary production is entitled "Whispered  Words." The theme sho touches on is  love and marriage, and here are a few  of her reflections:  The moment bhe thought of patience  flits through the mind in marriage, Hip  ���������marriage has, strictly speaking, ceased to  exist, liocauso lovo has vanished, on  \ri\idh alone this relationship can be built  trp and preserved.  For that which we fully.fathom stands  not in need of patience; it conies to us  toe a thing of course, natural, simple and  clear.  Unto love every little  foible and pc-  '    euliarity is dear.   Every sacrifice is welcome to love, which never feels it as  -such.  In presence of the world no doubt it  is proper that forbearance Should be ex-  ���������erased, and it is meet that the eyes of  outsiders should not catch a. glimpse of  ���������the misery of an unhappy union.  Marriage has but one sole end, to bring  children into the world, and to shield  tfiem until they can protect themselves.  ' ' If we could bring ourselves to look  upon marriage as a holy sacrifice, an act  ��������� of perfect self-abnegation,'we ehould  make much greater progress.  In  marriage   people   fancy   they   can  throw off all restraint, heedless of the  ���������fact that when they act thus their short-  <*    coinings assume coloss *tl dimensions, and  ���������/-.their-good qualities dwindle -to -notking-  ���������lJ '-'ness.   . *.-" . ���������-  In marriage, more' than in any other  .   form of relationship, one should nevei  ,vthrow the reins aside, but always keep  a firm liand upon one's will.     ���������  An unseasonable "yawn is sometimes  enough to produce a whole draina.**  She Had an Aim in Life.

But there are occasions when  lii_ lriencllinc-sM is put to severe tests.  Orre of these came soon after the Boose-  vdt family settled at Sagamore Hill  last summer, when -many greartly exaggerated stories of the exploits of the  Kooscvelt children found their way into  the columns of the daily press. The  President decided to put an end to these  stories, and one day summoned a correspondent who had been active in supplying his paper with thi. class of news.  The President lost no time in stating  the object of the summons.  "I have noticed,  Mr.  , ttiuit a  greait mamy atones have appeared in the   regarding the exploits of my ohil-  'dren.

A eareful perusal of all thc health jour-  BaJs and text-books being published*, with  i study of lectures given throughout tha  monaftry, and a courso of hygienic troat-  nent under various popular methods, has  resulted in the following eclectic system  to preserve your liculth. It is,free for all.  Anybody 'with the usual number of;  bones, surrounded by the average amount  of tissue, and having a nervous systom  capable of standing the strain, may en-]  joy its benefits.  * The bet uty of orrr system is that ltl  takes only about ten hours n day. By  business men who arc obliged Lo support;  whole families, and who nniy have tried  other systems, this will bo duly appreciated.  You must rise at four o'clock in the  morning and take a sea-bath. For this  pnrpOMc* 8.1 It watci Hhorrlcl be used, and  it should be taken from tlie sea. A pipe  can bo laid directly from the nearest  ocean right into your bath-tub. lt may  coat a few thousands, but think of how  much more you would buvo to spend if  J'oit consulted a specialist! A cold bath  9 necessary, and if tho water be too  warm the tub should bo filled with  cracked ice. A short plunga of from fifteen to twenty minutes will be ull that  is required at first. This can be in*  creased as you grow stronger. Immediately upon emerging from the bath, go  over yourself with a large number ten  nutmeg-grater. Tin's will improve the  circulation and gradually loosen any  particles of superfluous tissue. Now,  after drinking a gallon of hot water, you are ready for your breakfast, which should consist of two  small capsules of nutty nut and one  ounce of selected grainy grain and a  wine-glassful of prepared cream,' from  which the casein, albumen and fats liave  been withdrawn. This should be followed  by a sun-bath under green, ��������� 'blue and  yellow glass, thc actinic rays of the sun  being carefully removed. At ten begin  your deep-breathing exercise. To doj  this successfully you must stand in fron t  of a eheval glass. Raise the chest gently but firmly to the ceiling and let it  rest there for four or five minutes; then  let it fall slowly* but surely to t'he floor.  Every window in the room should, oi  course, be open, and, if possible, the roof  removed. This movement should be  lihythmio and accompanied by a piano  attachment, or else try a bass-drum, as  music helps the muscles to -dilate. If all  else fails, try a. brass band.  At noon you will begin to feel hungry,  but do not let this di-turb you. Hunger  is an abnormal condition. You will  gradually get over this. For dinner, take  a baked apple, from Which the pulp has  been removed, and scrape off the inside  of the skin.

The real aristocracies of Europe, such  ns the consular families of Koine and  thc magnates of Austria-Hungary, hold  English pretensions to .Jong descent in  supreme contempt,   lt is not only true  tliey despise the peerages of the Victor-  inn age and such growths of the Itcfor-  -matioii  as   tire  Cccil-j  and   the  Cavendishes and tho Kussclls, but they even  think scorn of our mediaeval glories, and  hold Seymours and Howards and Percys  to be merely ennobled squires. Thore are,  however, some three or four'Englisli families which arc ranked as great even by  the exacting requirement, of Rome and  Vienna,  arrd   eminent  among  these are  the  Talbots, the Stanleys and the Ne-  vills.    This reflection gives piquancy to  Lord    William    Ncvill's    just-published  book on convict life.   To number "Warwick t/he King-maker" among his ancestors, to have one's home in  the oldest  enclosed deer park irr England, to have  been    oneself    the    best-looking,    best-  dressed and most popular young man in  London, and  then to pas** with  pcrfcot  equanimity and contentment to drawing  a cart on a convict farm and washing  medicine bottles in a convict infirmary  is, indeed, to have established a social  record of unusual interest.  In discussing the attempted pil>frimage  of the Canadian Douklrobor., who net  out through the snow "to find Jesus,"  tlie London "Spectator" says th.it this is  only another instance of lite length to  wQiich the credulous Eastern rrrirrd .an be  carried. It gives a parallel case of wild  belief among the Munits, a race ot squalid savages living in Borneo.  One day, a year or two ago, tlmr������ appeared among thorn a Afurut, naked like  themselves, and apparently differing in  no way from his fellows. Yet in a sli������rt  timo lie was able to make Ibe msnrbers  of the tribe surrender to liim tlieir wives,  their cattle and other possessions simply  on the strength of his own declaration  od to his powers. '  He asserted that he could rotifer on  devout disciples the power of tlyirg. .No  'I.n6 asked him to fly 'himself; it seemed  never to occur to thorn. Yet a number  of men climbed to the lops of the highest  cocoanut-trees  in  the  village,  arrd  .le������ped_iato_ Mic_air. , ,  When they -ffcrc .found to be dead, it  is only reasonable to ���������Kiiiipodo that tho  survivors stltr |ipon the firiso prophet anil  killed liim. Not'lrirrg of llyj sort! On  the contrary, he explained llral Uro dead  men had not been sufficiently devout,  and lie found no difiiculty Ui inducing  others to follow  their example.  At itrst, after he had initialed over  twenty men into the process of llyirrt;  from tire tops of trees to tKo ground,  Ire was arrested through foreign nguncy  nnd thrown into prison. Hut even then  the natives believed in liim to such an  cxicnt that they resented any interference in the matter.  There is a story of a gcntlen������a.n who.  upon visiting Mt. Vernon, came across a  Udy kneeling 'before a building quite a  distance from the Washington nronu*  merit. "Are you in trouble!" he asked  ker. "No, eir," sire replred; "tcrank you  very much. I am not in trouble, but  my patriotic feelings overcome me when  I gate ttfftm the tomb of thc 'Father of  his Country.'" "I quite understand,''  he araid, kindly; "but, madam, you have  made a -mistake. This is not the tomb  of Washington; it is over yonder. Thin  is the ice-kouse." Quickly ceasing her  weeping, the lady rose and. moved nway.  There is nothing that that cheery old  gentleman, the Pope, enjoys more than  huggiiig himself on the fact tliat he is u  youth in oil but years. Recently a favorite cardinal wns dining with him, and  after the removal of the dessert tire  guest drew from his pocket a dissertation  on St. Peter, and proceeded to re������d, but  stuck fast at' an ill written word. The  Pope insisted on iris handing him the  manuscript, and deciphered it at once,  /smilingly remarking, "You see, my^dear  friend, you ought always to carry specs  at your age. 1.0 buy a pair.

Carter, the well known mining man of Ferguson, came in to town  on .Saturday'to meet 'Mrs. (..ii-ter, who  for* the past few weeks lias been visiting friends in Snohomish, Wash.  A convention, of British Columbia  lumbermen'was held in Uie city orr  Saturday, irr the evening the visitors  were-entertained to an inlorinal dinner-  by the local lumber-men, at the Hotel  Kevelstou'e.'..

H. Cooke provided a good programme  for the evening.  Joseph Trainer, who recently left  the Ptarmigan mine, 'near Windermere, was irr towrr a oouple "f days*,  en route to his home in Phoenix. He  had with him some remarkably fine  samples of .gray copper and massive  galena, tho former from AVilmer and  lire latter from Jumbo creek, 11 tributary of Toby creek.  The Ladies , Aid of the Methodist,  church realized a handsome -.11111 from  the La Dell-Scott concert Monclav  evening. There was a large attendance and Miss LaDell fullynraiirtaiued  her reputation as an elocutionist  while the singing of Miss Scott was  much appreciated. Miss Hall presided  very acceptably at the piano.  At the last moment Sheriff Vail, of  Kamloops, received a telegram further  respiting the murderer, Alex. Louis,  until July ___th'. This was pending the  result of au appeal as to improper  admission of evidence, but an adverse  decision has been received from the  Supreme Court and the law wiii  probably take its course.  3. M. Kellie returned from an eastern trip orr Saturday evening. Mr.  lvellie informs the 'Hkkald that he  did not get tlie post office, in fact he  was not looking for it, and that it wai,  none of our business what he went  east for. There will likely be a further Dominion appropriation for river  improvements this year, but no more  drill sheds.  A" number of citizens residing on  Third street have approached His  Worship- the Mayor by letter calling  attention to the disgraceful condition  of the Third street roadway whicli has  been entirely neglected this season iiy  ehe council up -to. tlie. present. The  petUioiicalled for repairs to toad sur-  i^ce"fiejf^to=I.i*(F_b'j-tdiHivirCliur-ch-arici  requests the extension of the fence  along the river bunk. The Hkr.'.ld  heartily endorses these needed improvements.  Among the lumbermen who registered at the Hotel Revelstoke for the  meeting on Saturrlav last, were, H. de  i'encier. I't. Bowman, AV. I).

A meeting of the Fruit Growers'  Association will be held at Salmon  Arm, July Gth, at 2 p. m. Several  speakers from the Coast will address  the meeting. All parties interested  are invited to attend.  L. A. Lewis, at one time one of the  New Westminster champion lacrosse  players, who was here for the lumbermen's mooting, went south to Nelson  so as to lie present at the game on  Dominion Day.  It is expected that the new Hume for  the power irorrse will be completed  about Monday next and the electric  light plant in working order again.  Tile improvements rrrade are of a permanent nature.  The Province is speculating on the  possibilities of preserving eggs by silicate of soda. A solution of the same  should he put ovor the Grit, platform,  if there is jrre. It will have to keep  four \'ears tit least.  Two young men name-l Stewart  James* and Arthur AVaby were  drowned in the river near Enderby  the other day. Mr. James was a  member of the Orange Order and the  funeral was held under its auspices.  ���������/There was danger of collapse at the,  new City Hall last week, owing to an  error in insufficiently securing the  foundations. However it was discovered in tr'rrre arrd there is rro further  chance of its caving .in under the  martial tread of Tom Bain.  Don't forgot the strawberry and  ice cream social on the 'Methodist  parsonage lawn on Tuesday next,  commencing tit I p.rrr.

The G ravenliursl, group of five claims  is'llre Itrte-sL one to be opened up on  Kis.li ri ver and from present indications  will shortly occupy tin equal place to  the other free milling gold properties  of this thriving carrrp. Tlie group irr  question covers about 250 acres and is  the properly ol .1. A. JJarragh, mil-layer' of the Copper Dollarand "Western  .Situ-, and li. K. Fleeter of Lima. Ohio.  Mr. Fioeter- is expected to arrive any  day and will stay irr the camp for the  siiiiimor.  "Wurk on the Graveuhrrr-ht was commenced lato last fall and invostigat ions  made which resulted in a good free  milling ledge being located. Snow,  however, prevented further development being clone. The claims aie cm  Lhe west side of Camborne mountain,  which is divided from Leviiigton  mountain by Pool creek, and they adjoin the well known Sir Wilfrid group.  Work was commenced irr tire early  part ������f last month and latest advices  stat*1 that the ledge ha.-* been uncovered and a* 12 foot vein of white quartz  exposed. Assays show it to Ih- fully  up to the average value: of Fish river  ores and as soon a.s _ifr. Fioeter arrives  tunnelling will be commenced. Tlie  Gravenhurst is situated in an ideal  spot for mining and the Ukk.vi.i_ believes that before fall development  \. ill prove the propel ty to l*e.-_l*ig  mine.  Another recent strike, which created no little sensation in the camp, was  made on the Stockholm, .1 property on  Lexington mountain situated near the  Kvvi and belong  to  P. l_m*sen and W.  Boms."- The���������Stockholm   i*- __m I he  north side of the mountain and when  developed will lie tributary to Gold-  fields. The ore irr question was found  in an open cut. and although the yellow metal wa** not visible, horning  showed an average value of about $.j()  to the ton.  Work is being steadily continued on  the Copper* Dollar and rSrunsvvir-k.  operations at present being confined  to the main lead on the west portion  of the Copper Hollar'. in the iror;th  east lead I here has been 110 feel, of  tunnelling done, sullieient lo prow the  value* of the ledge and this season's  work will he devoted to exploitation of  other' leads on the property.

The   mass   meeting   in    the   Opera  House on Sunday evening in the interests of the Lord's Day Alliance wa.s an  unqualified  success.'   A.   large and intelligent audience,   representative   of  all classes  and  denominations, was irr  waitirrg when the chair was taken. On  the platform  were  llev.   Messrs. Lad-  ner, Calder.  Mackinnon,   the  Captain  of the Salvation Army, and the united  choirs  of   the   Methodist arrd Presbyterian   churches.        Mr.    Humphreys  presided at the piano, ilr. Taylor leading   the   choir'.      Uev.   W. C. Calder,  president of the local Alliance occupied  the   chair.      After   the   .singing of a  hymn,   the reading of the 2!th Psalm,  arid   prayer   by   Rev.   C.   l-adner, thc;  speaker *.if the  evening. Uev. Clarence  Mackinnon,   T5.I).,   of Sydney,   X.   S.,  was introduced by the chairman.    Mr.  McKinnon   for   the   space of   half an  hour' held the attention of his audience  iua   very   interesting address ou the  drums of   the   Lord's   Day   Alliance.  The speaker based his remarks on   the  ��������� experience of  Xeheiniah in the rebuilt  city of Jerusalem   where  the Sa bin ith  had   heen   desecrated   by   those who  drove their trade oir that. day.    "While  riot advocating  the   establishment of  Lhe Jewish Sabbath   with   its  absurd  restrictions   imposed   by   the -Jewish  Habliis which 'Jesus  had swept awny,  the Sabbath   being  made for man not  man for thc Sabbath,  -Mr. Mackinnon  claimed tliat tlie'iuiderlyiiig principles  held good in regard to the Day'of Host  arrd rrrade  for  national   righteousness  and   national   prosperity.     It was an  effort to  preserve  the  Canadian Day  of Rest. Tlie Hev. speaker emphasized  tho lad of the attempted inroads on  the day by Lhe  greed  of  corporations  and the 0rg.mi7.ed excursions for pleasure.      The   value   of   the day to lhe  working man was eloquently sot forth  and the   successes   which  marked the  efforts of the Alliance irr checkmating  the power!ul influences in our* land lor  ils destruction.    Mr. .Mackinnon rrrade  a strong  point in  remarking that we  had   a   gieat   opportunity   while   we  were laying the foundations of a   firre  empire to make it   good and strong behaving the  Lord's Day   as one of   the  good   -stones   in   its louud.-ition.    The  i.iilure of the United   States irr this di-  lection, and the warning voice  which  came to us   fiom  aeio.--   the   border  urged upon us the necessity   of faithfulness on   our part   as   we  had   the  opportunity now.     A very interesting  feature     of   the   meet ing     was    the  anthem    rendered     by     Lhe    choir.  During Lhe  taking  ol   Lhe   collection  the   chair   made   a   lew   remarks   iir  which ho made reference to the   kindness on the part of Mr. Tapping,   who  had given  the  opera   house free  arrd  had done so much for  the  comfort of  the gathering.      Keierence   was   also  made to Lhe kindno.s ol   the  choir  irr  aiding so materially to Lite  success  of  the   meeting.    The   highly successful  gathering was brought to  a  close by  singing tlie  hymn   " Nearer My  God  to     Thee,"     ilev.     Mv.     Mackinnon  pronouncing the benediction.  .1,.
