QUOITING  A number of enthusiasts are playing  quoits  every  evening  on   McKenzie  Avenue.     There   are several experts,  among whom  are  Guy  Barber,   Dr.  Coghlan, Percy Boyd, L. O. Anderson,  and Lewis.     They  should organize a  ���������ri       _,*_������������������_,       ..     14.-1-1--' bucket brigade and have  the  pitches  Fiom O. P.

In 1898 they had a  attend to the hg-hte, and it will be championship tournament when J. W.  sei5'etLs-*-*t'r"J"* .    *.   _      Currell won against all comers after a  R.

Provincial Secretary re grant to  pest house and stating matter was  referred to Health Department.  WATER EXCESBK8.  The Government Agent wrote stating that the city was using more  water than its record called for and a  further record must be obtained or the  Hume reduced.���������The matter was reserved for further consideration.  .'���������: BILL OBJECTED TO.  .W. A. Galliher, M.' P., forwarded a  copy of the Columbia River Improvement Co.'s Bill. Tlie exposure of the  enormous powers asked evidently has  produced the required effect. The  mayor and aldermen strongly object  to it and a wire was -sent to Ottawa  requesting amendment on .the lines  recently suggested by the Herald."  .'.CLAIM DAMAGES.  The council instructed the city clerk  to make a claim, for damages against  the C. P.-R. for non-delivery of fire  trucks.    - ,' _ -  .KfcECTRIC"LIGHT RATES.*  The Mayor's proposal to reduce installation costs was turned down by  the Light - Committee who reported  that they remain as at present.���������  Report adopted.  * A bylaw requiring removal of certain Chinese laundries within the new  boundaries was introduced and had  its three readings.  ��������� TAX SALE.  This   bylaw  was  reconsidered and  finally passed, the date of  sale being  fixed for August 14th.  .MILK TESTING.   "  - The city clerk was, by resolution,  ordered to have the city's milk supply  tested by . his new outht. It was also  ordered that, in all cases, merchants  must only supply goods to the city  after receipt of requisition.  SPORTS   ANO    PASTIMES  TRAP AND TRIGGER  The gun club held their regular  weekly shoot on Friday afternoon,  there being a good turn out of members. The following were the scores,  20 birds, unknown traps and angles:  J. Sturdy 12, McRae 11, W," Armstrong 11, A. McDonell 0, Skene 8,  Dr. Cross 8, Whalen 8, Leake 8, Dr.  Sutherland 7.  THE NATIONAL GAME.  - The boys are getting out to practice  regularly now and are putting up a  good game.  An 18 feet addition has been put on  the dressing room at the Athletic  grounds. It is of Gothic pattern after  design by Dr. Coghlan.  Arrangements have been made for  games withNelson and Rossland next  week. The team will leave on Thursday morning next playing at Nelson  on Friday and Rossland on  Saturday.  At a uieeting of the players held  "\Vedn_._lay evening A. _f. Hyatt was  elected captain of the team. The  choice, is a wise one as the newly  chosen captain has had considerable  experience in the east having been  captain of the Thistles the intermediate champions of Ontario in 1001.  The flrst Fulton cup match will take  place at Kamloops on Dominion Day  when the Revelstoke boys will cross  sticks with the holders of the cup.  They will give the bunch grass outfit  a hard rustle.     The   following  is the  Masonic Service.  The members* of " Kootenay Lodge,  No. 15," A. F.'fc A. -M.  turned out in  large numbers for the*special service  at  St.   Peter's  Church 'last   Sunday  when a very able sermon on the character of the order was delivered by  Rev.  C.   A.   Procunier. ���������   The hymns,  were especially suitable to the occasion ��������� ,  and the choir sang splendidly, probably the best being the retrocessional, *���������  "Fight the good fight." ,  -  The day being Trinity Sunday the  first lesson, the story of the creation, -  was most appropriate and the text  Romans iv.. 7 and 25, was' the theme  upon which the .speaker based an  address on freemasonry. He pointed .  out that the Order had been in existence from time immemorial, that its  remains may" be found in Rome and  Egypt and inscriptions embodying  masonic characters have been discovered antedating written history. The  Order, one whose ideals arc veiled in  allegory and illustrated by symbols,  was founded- on belief in God, > no  atheist being eligible for membership.  It taught the utility" of prayer and  accentuated a belief in immortality.  In social matters * it emphasized the  love of fraternity, and formed a bond  between capital and labour, both Bides  being represented in its'ranks. Masonry taught that labour had its rights as  well as capital and recognized the fact  that the laborer was as worthy of his  hire as the financier of his usury. In  conclusion, the high ideals of the  Order were spoken of and Longfellow's well known lines: "They build  too high who build below the stars*.*' .  quoted. The large congregation listened to the sermon* with!' marked  attention and* the member's of the  masonic fraternity were evidently  impressed by lhe able discourse.  U* B. R."e. Strike  -"���������Vanco-VER,-- June 10th.���������(Special   Correspondence)���������It is expected that  the settlement of this strike will be  announced today as conferences have  lieen going on for some days between  the strikers committee and the-C.P.R.  A meeting was held on Tuesday but  there were not enough members of the  brotherhood present to warrant  definite action* being taken but at a  meeting last night it is understood  that a definite.. arrangement was  arrived at which will result in a compromise. 'The result of the deliberations were not made public but the  committee seems confident that the  trouble would be at an end by the end  of this week at latest.' THURSDAY,  JUNE u���������  1903.  $2 Per Year  New Buildings.  Excavation has been completed for  a now three-story block on Front St.,  to be occupied by Chinese merchants.

He had been subject to  fits, and was found dead in an  irrigation ditch containing only a foot  ot water. It is presumed he had a  seizure while stooping down to take a  drink of water. He was a native of  England and only 27 years of age.  W. A.

We don't mind the New Denver  "Ledge" copying the Hisrald'S article  re the disappearance of John Brenmm,  but crediting it to the "Alail'* is rather  rough.  ���������James   Hathaway,   the  road-house  keeper of 19 mile, has just taken up  a  t pack horse  for  the   convenience   of  '. those who wish to visit Laforiue and  I surrounding  creeks.       This will  be  much appreciated as it   will  save tlie  necessity of their taking a horse from  Kevelstoke.  The Herald has been requested by  tlie Provincial Mining Association to  call attention to the fact that by a  recent amendment to the Assessment  Act it is necessary to lile affidavit of  work on claims before June -41th each  year to secure exemption from taxation.  Tii ree children of Joe Lonzo, the  farmer just outside the city, ate some  bologna sausage that had been in the  house for some days and were attacked  with ptomaine poisoning. They  suffered very severely until' medical  attention was .secured.  Probably the man most acquainted  with the mineral resources of this  Province living is Mv. Angus K.  Stuart, the representative of the  Dominion Government, who is now  inthe^^yjuTTOJiiging^ for^ the exhibit  from B. C. for the ^St7~I--m .-Exposition. Arrangements have been  made whereby the expense of all  exhibits from uny point on the C.P.R.  or ita branches will he paid by the  Federal authorities and all intending  exhibitors have to do is to forward  their samples to the Dept. of Agriculture, -"xhibitiorr branch,' Ottawa.  The mining camps adjacent to Revelstoke should take this matter up and  the Hkhai.d will be glad to give nny  further in formation in its power upon  request.

He pointed out that this had been his  view right along and that he was one  of the few wiio ran as a Conservative  ' in 1000. *  Asked as to the general feeling over  Mr. McBride's elevation to tho premiership, Mr. Taylor said:  "Tho most remarkable thing is thc  great enthusiasm with which it was  received on the Island. * The Chimney  Creek and other matters had .somewhat disgusted a number of the old  time tor ies, but thoy have rallied (o a  man round Mr. McBride and his government will have anothor "big four"  in the House, this time solid Conservatives. As to Vancouver and Now  Westminster I may say that both  cities are, except for dyed in the wool  Grits, prepared to give hiin generous  support. The New Westminster  demonstration on Saturday evening  was an event of which any Premier  }ni ght be proud,    I never saw such a  spontaneous expression of personal  popularity anywhere else. The whole  town was worked up and the reception  accorded Mr. McBride, Hon. li. F.  Green and inyself, who,, also had the  honour of addressing the gathering,  was splendid."  Regarding matters of local interest  our.member expressed himself as more  than satisfied.   He said:  "The two most recent matters taken  up by me with the Government, a road  round Death Rapids aud assistance to  the proposed manual training school,  aro receiving every attention. In  reference to the former I may say that  I bave placed facts and figures before  the proper department and the Premier assured me on Satin day that it  would ieceive careful consideration.  He fully understands that a complete  route up the Big Bend must be provided, and I feel assured that the  wishes ot Revelstoke will be complied  with. m  "As to the manual training school,  you of course know the first step has  been taken. Tn the supplementary  estimates provision is made for the  salary of an Inspector of this branch of  education alone, and I fully believe  that if the school trustees make proper  representations assistance will lie  forthcoming towards the expenses of  initiating a eonise here.  "The matter of a bridge across the  Columbia was nol considered feasible  by the late Chief- Commissioner, the  utmost I could do was to get the  promise of consideration to a ferry  scheme, but now that there is a Government in power having liehind it an  united following I shall renew my  efforts and hope ultimately to be  successful."  innoimced his intention'of being a  candidate as a Conservative. It rs  probable he will be again opposed by  J. C. Brown,"but "Tom's" election is  certain.  The people of the Fraser valley are  delighted "at the turn affairs have  taken and appreciate the fairness ot  the supplementary estimates glinting  large increases ovei' the paltry sums  allotted by the late administration. I  have -just leturned from tho Delta  wheie public opinion seems much to  favor- McBiide. "John Oliver will  probably be beaten as he would have  been last election had not the Conservative vote been divided between  Messis. Beny and Forster.  oua Victoria; letter  Victoria, B. C, June 10th.���������(Special)  ���������Beyond the prorogation of the House  iind the consequent steppage ol  political news there has been nothing  of much inteiest this week. Late on  Thursday afternoon all business was  completed and the -Lieutenant-Governor cnhiedo wh and closed the   session'  with the following speech :    Mr. Speaker-!Iin"d" Meinbers-bf���������the"  Legislative Assembly :  I note that several measure, of importance have been passed by you  during thc currei.cy of the present  session.  It has afforded me much pleasure to  know that definite steps have been  taken towards the settlement of the  Alaska boundary *, question, and that  the legal profession of this Province  will be represented among the counsel  retained by the Dominion of Canada.  Tt is also gratifying to know that  greatly increased attention ��������� on * the  part of prospective settlers to Canada  has been directed to British Columbia,  and that there.has been a consi'leraiile  number of arrivals during the present  season.  I thank you for thc liberal supplies  granted to His Majesty.  In relieving you from further  attendance, it is with the.sincere hope  that the results of your dehheiations  may prove of lasting benefit to the  Province.

Green as Minister of  Mines. Charles Wilson, K.

Hon. A. I<". Green was sworn in also  as Provincial Secretary, tempoiarly  holding that another Mines poitfolio.  From a reliable source I learn that  the House will bo formally dissolved  on Tuesday next and the" election hur-  .I������d as much as possibly.   *I"lje date is  given to nre a.s about the 25th Sept.

The new minrsteis got down to woik  this morning with the exception of the  Piemier. who was detained   at   New  Westminster   by    business    engagements.

He left  home in 1882 and tor some years resided iii Winnipeg taking his degree  at Manitoba College, andseived with  distinction dm ing the North -West  Rebellion of 1883 as Iieutenaut'in the  90th Rifles. Upon coming to B. C. in  1801 he was called to the bar and  commenced practice as partner ot  Ohailes*-.\_lson,__. C. On the latter  iemoving*-**to the mainland Mr. Mc-  Phrllrps became the bead of the firm  ot McPhillips, Woot-on arid Barnaid.  He was president ot tho Victoria Bar  Association rrr 180S-00 and appointed  If. C. in 1900. Mi. McPhillips is a  si/tong Conservative .in politics and  wiote a ' much; admired pamphlet on  the Manitoba school question when  the Remedi-'.l Bill campaign of 1890  was in progress. He was liist elected  to the Legislature for Victoria at the  general electrons  in   1S0S,   which seat  FISH RIVER  FREE GOLD  he still holds. ^- He was the only  Victoria member who fought the  Canadian Northern land giant, being  o.ie of the present Premiei's 'chief  lieutenants and won the respect of the  whole Province for his straightforward comse in spite of great opposing  influences.  Hon. Robert Francis Gieen, the  new Minister ot Mines, is a native of  Peterboro, Ontario, wheie he was  born on November 14th, 1801 He  first came west iu 1882 residing until  1885 in various p.uts of Manitoba and  tbe Noith West. . Ho then came to  Jlleoillewaet where he conducted u  stoie until the opening up of South  Koolenay when he moved to Kuslo.  Mr. Green had the honour of being  the first Mayor of that city in the yeai  1807. He w.rs first elected as a member of the old Provincial Party in 18U8  for Slocan, being re-elected lor the  same constituency in 1000. His work  as whip ot the McBride opposition is  well known. In politics Mr. Green is  a Conservative and is a member of  that paity's provincial executive.  .   Hon. Charles Wilson is a' native of  Loiidoii. i_ng.. where he _w_��������� bpin in  1841. At the time he became of age  in 1802 the Fr.iser Hi ver Gold excitement broke out* and, iu common  with many others, he came fo this  Province wheie he has since resided.  When the gold fever -waned he went  into the newspaper business at Bar-  kerville, studying law in the meantime,  and was appointed a barrister .at law,  by special Act, in 188,'-. Hi1 commenced practice iu Victoria (bat year  and lemoved to New Westminster in  1800. when he became , a member of  the firm ol Corbould, McColl, AVilson  and Campbell. In 18!).'. he moved to  ���������Vancouver' where' he how resides  undisputably the leader oi the bar ol  British Columbia of which he i.s the  senior King's.Counsel. He also le-  ceived" a similar-honor, from the  Dominion iu 1805. He has been  associated with many important trials  notably the "Bawnmore" conspiracy  and the Kennedy murder case. His  work representing the Province before  the Chinese Commission is well known  and his Closing argument has become  a classic in legal oratory. He has always been identified with the right  of labor acting tor many years foi- the  Island Miner's unions, his latest  appearance in that capacity being before the Royal Commission now  sitting. He also seemed tho recognition of the unfairness ol taxation oi  railway employees on tlieir income  and lias successfully defended a number of members of the U. B. R. E. aud  other unions. Mr. AVilson is an old  member of the Provincial Legislature  having sat lor Cariboo from 1882 to  1800. In 1800 he unsuccessfully contested Victoria city on an independent  ticket.

Oyster-Criterion, Goldfields  and Other Groups.  Among the promising mineral  claims in the Lardeau mining division  the Lucky Joe group of four claims,  containing about 200 acres, is worthy  of mention. The group in question is  the property of; Joseph Gottlieb and  is situated about two. miles north-east  of Couiaplix, uu the Oomaplix-Cam-  borne wagon road. These claims are  near the shore ot the noith-east aim  of Arrow lake* and have the same  characteristics as the other well  known mines of Pish River camp.  The ore found isj free milling gold  quartz and the first'vein discoveied  has a width of twenty teet, all acioss  which free gold is visible to the naked  eye. The owner has been working on  the property for some time and reports that thiee other ledges were  found this spring, making four in all  whicli appears to ho of good shipping'  value.  Pioperties in the vicinity havLJtaken  an upward tuin lecently owing to the  success of the Northwestei n Development Symlicate.it Goldfields and the  Oysfei-Criterion and other groups  and Mr. Gottlieb should have in the  Lucky Joe a property of good value.  Even the limited amount of woik  done has to a large extent proved the  continuity of the oie bodies and it is  moie than piobable that this, t'.e  south-western portion of Pish river  camp, will become productive in the  near tiitute.  With the return of Mr. J. 'A.  Daii'.igh to the camp the season s  work on two other important gioups  will be inaugurated. These are the  well known Copper Dollar and Western Star opeiuted by the Ell wood  Tiuwoikers' Gold Mining Company, a  well known syndicate of capitalists  resident in the state of Indiana.  Preparations have already been made  this spring for the prosecution'of extensive development hy the-erection  of cabins, "etc.,"^and Mr. Darragh's  appearance on the properties will be  the signal for this work' to commence.  At Goldfields the Northwestern  Development Syndicate, under its  manager Frank Blackwell, have continued _work not only on the recently  reported rich strike but also in blocking out iuither ore for the mill. This  company niade _*he��������� third J payment of  $22,000 on the pioperty recently, and  but for an unfortunate accident to a  part of the mill machinery would have  started steadily running on the 5th  instant. It is believed, however, that  the stamps have" started^ hefoie this  and within a week or two anothet  gold brick"of very-large dimensions  will be brought to Revelstoke. The  recent phenomenal discovery of gold  bearing quartz has cieated quite a  sensation at' Hancock, Mich., whet e  most of the company's shareholders  reside and it is more than likely they  may endeavour to acquire further  pioperties in the vicinity. This will  be a difficult matter, * however, as  claim owners in the Pish river camp  fully realize the value of their holdings.  The Oyster-Criterion mill has been  completed, with the'-exception of the  letaining wall, for*a couple of weeks.  The non-arrival of 100 barrels of lime  oidered some time ago by the management has been the cause of the delajy,  but upon their arrival the work will  be rushed to completion. As soon as  the concrete floor's have heen laid, the  machinery, which is now on the  ground, will be put in at once, and  thus another- stamp mill added to the  gold producing iudustry-in thc biggest  tree gold camp in British Columbia.  Every indication points not only to  a large output of bullion before the  end of the Reason but nlso to un immense increase in business opportunities.; The merchants of Revelstoke  should strain every elfoit to retain  this trade, which natuie has oidained  should belong to them. To Fish river  and the Big Bend this city must look  for its gieafest tiade expansion and  there is nothing like seizing time by  the forelock in the splendid chances  that have lately arisen.  School Trustees.  The school trustees held a meeting  bust Thursday and disposed of a lot of  routine business.. bteps weie also  taken to complete the school and  grounds. Contracts will bo asked for.,  concreting the basement and building  a picket tence round the school property. The playground will be tiiken  in hand at once and giaded.  A matter which may be of great  importance to the pi ovnrce generally  was also discussed. It was the agitation for iiee school books, anil, m  order to secure united action it wa.s  decided to write all other Boaids in  tho province urging them to obtain  pledges from candidates in the coming  elections that something wrll be done  in this connection.  Conservative Committee.  There was a well attended meeting  at Le Maistre and Scott's office nn  Friday evening last when good progress was made in the party's business.  All present were determined to do  yeoman service during the coming  campaign and expressed confidence of  an overwhelming majority for their  candidate. The election being in the  near future a further meeting was  arranged for the 10th instant, when  the Committee will report.  ���������*t*. -T. _T. .*f*. -*r������ .-_*. ������*t*. .T. .*1*. .T. .*���������*. ***"., .-t*. .-S*. .*T. _T������ .T*. .-j*. _T. ������T. _T. _T. _*fr. .-T. .'

That Fish River free gold has attractions for other people than investors wns evidenced in Calumet, Mich.,  last week- As will be remembered a  quantity of the recent rich strike of  ore was taken e.ust u couple of weeks  ago to the head office of the Northwestern Development Syndicate, on  whose property at Goldfields it iva-,  found. This w.'is deposited in Jud*.*-  Curtis' safe and a couple of aniateui*  burglars, investors in the stock, wanted to obtain specimens upon production of "which they hoped to unload  th**ir holdings at a hi^h ficure.  The Houghton Mining Gazette give*,  the following amusing account o*  want happened.  "When they saw the rock that bad  gold stuck in it as Calumet A_ Ilccla  conglomerate has copper, they got ���������  veiy excited. Tliey got,,ncxt to the  fact that the justicejkept the gold in  bis safe and'they thought it would be .  an easy snap to break into thc safe  and get o;ie *jf the pieces of rock.  They didn't want it all; just' one piece  would be plenty to make them square  on their unfortunate bit of stock speculation.  "They wei e .lrincd with an old bicycle lantern, a couple of hammers,  which it is claimed by some of the  officers of the company were used for  "knocking" purposes on previous  occasions, a stick of dynamite and a  little dril^.uhich they had stolen from  a buigl.us'krt.

But the way in  - .vhich very* many love and seek and  - - ase money is a curse to themselves and  *o everybody else.  _Man loves power.      Money confers  ��������� sower.     The po.scssion of enough of  - -'-it confers the power to acquire and en-  ���������Joy almost anything,  except personal  worth,  which  thc  heart    may   desire.  Here  lies  its   danger.      It  gives  the  ���������*���������*.-���������������������������ower to furnish the necessities, com*  - "oris and luxuries of life, not only, but  .. -:o indulge every appetite and passion  ���������"*���������*��������� with the promise of escape from some  ���������~������f   the    natural   consequences.

How then .shall a young man, with a  rife to make or-mar, regard the getting  tnd the'using of this wonderful medium of power ?  I. He ought to have some of it.  Young man, the world does not owe  ���������fou a living. The only thing it owes  ���������you is a fair chance to-make something of yourself and make a living for  -fourself. On the other hand, you owe  ���������the world something. If you think it  awes you something, remember that  't owes the same to every other man,  ��������� ind thus a part of the debt is yours.  : iTou owe to the world, first, a contribution of personal worth and character.

He   has   proved   how  ��������� iase he  is,  and has still   further  de-  - Sased    himself*   besides.        Get   your  -'money honorably, or do not get it at  -__D.  ���������"���������SVork for it.   .  The world has  not  ".-putgrown the curse (or blessing) pro-  ~. Bounced in Eden.

How shall you   use   it ?    Do  not  jlritt into any  way of  using it.    You  may drift along fairly well  for some  time, but there is a shore somewhere,  _nd drifting almost invariably ends in  stranding.     The world is strewn with  the wrecks of stranded drifters.   With-  ��������� Dot being miserly, determine definitely  now, when and where your money shall  _*p.f and insist that it shall produce results for you." It is most important  '-'���������that you Shouiu recognize the religious  -bligation involved in its possession.  You are God-kept, and air you get is  in a sense God-given. Thus you are  responsible to God for its use. This  _-ligation, which should be of first im-  ���������porlance to you. agrees with and is  reinforced by the ordinary considera-  -fions of wisdom and morals and tire  fundamental requisites of business suc-  tess. ���������''';���������..���������'���������  .'By this, and by all of these, wast-  ing money is vicious.

No amount of  - money or of good works done with  money   can   secure   this.

The ������e*wers of Paris aro now beins  ���������searched for treasures, owing to the recent discovery by workmen of a bundle  containing $120,000 in securities,  j     "The latest Atnorlcan Idea for the  j sheathing of vessels to prevent fouling and corrosion  is to sheath them  with glass plates, which is said to be  entirely feasible."   The above Item Is  '.. from The Engineer, ot London. While  I this mny be true, we have heard noth-  ' Ing about It, and it sounds suspiciously  j like paper bicycles and  other things  of liko ordor. which seem to exist only  Un the minds of newspaper reporters.  The British Eastern Australasian and  China Telegraph company filed a clnira  with   the  State  Department    of    tho  United States for $30,000 damages for  cutting its cable by Admiral Dowey  nt Manila last May.   The United Statos  Attorney-General has now rendered a  decision finding that, according to International law, there -was no ground  for ft   claim  for  Indemnity where a  military commander cuts a cable within the territorial waters of an enemy.  Petit Bleu, of Brussels, recently had  a curious experience In which it was  shown that no one is indtspenslhle ln  this world.    The compositors having  struck, the text accompanying the illustrations   was   written out on the  typewriter;      then     the      typewritten     sheets     and     the     copy     for  the pictures were pasted    on    large  sheets of cardboard and the whole was  reduced by photography to the required size.   From this negative a photoengraving was made from which the  (taper was printed.  Ths authorities of the Southern Metropolitan Gas company,   an   English  corporation, have added worklngmen  directors to the board of the company..  The report stated that the profit _har-,'  Ing system, which was introduced sin *  1889. continues to Justify Its existence,.;  as lt induces a generally Intelligent In--  terest In the welfare of the -company 1  on  the part of Its officers and men.  Two of the workmen were elected by  the workmen "shareholders to sit' on  the board,: and the* result so far has  proved  very satisfactory.  According to The Medical Sentinel.  It has been ascertained by careful observation that certain families In a  village of St.Ourn. France, enjoy ab-  soluta immunity from tuberculosis.  Thoy are gardeners of excellent habits  who Intermarry among themselves and  keep apart from tho Immigrant laborers. The latter suffer severely from  the disease. Il Is considered probable  that hygienic cor.ilil'ons are not. the  sole cause of tho difference,-:but*:thnt  by a kind of natural selection a race  Immune from tuberculosis has been developed.  * Caisson disease, or compressed air  disease, Is a. malady which Is often  contracted by those who are engaged  In engineering work ln positions where  they arc subjected to great-air 'pressure. Dr. Thomas Oliver has observed  several cases of this kind, and he has  arrived at' the conclusion that the  symptoms: are best explained by the  theory that the malady Is'due to Increased solution by the blood of the  gases met with It In compressed air.  and the liberation of these gases during decompression. The Increased solution of the gases Is due. of course, to  the greater prefsur. upon the person  of the caisson worker.

If sale  milk is to be his specialty he wants thc  deep milkers. If butter, he wants the  butter producers regardless of the  quantity of milk. If money is what he  Is dairying for, then he wants thc breed  that in his particular line of effort will  return him the most of it.

Wood ashes   have been known for  nany years as excellent for all kinds  >f   crops.      Long   before   fertilizers  vere placed upon the market wood ash-  :s were highly esteemed'  by farmers,  tnd if they can be had at fair prices, on  juarantee,  they sell readily.   But ash-  ������svary greatly, those from hardwoods  ������eing more valuable   than   the ashes  Irom soft wood, and yet it is difficult  io .decide upon the value of ashes even  .-hen  the   kind   of  wood  is   kno.vn.  -The: ingredient sought in ashes is pots-lib.      Hickory ashes contain as high  ���������is*9.17 per cent;    red oak, 5.75 per  ���������tent.; rock   elm, 6,30;   walnut,  4.65;  -.sherry, 5-82; quince, 6.30;  pear, 9.70 ;  butternut, 3.98; plum, 4.80, and peach,  6-95-     The cuttings of grapevines produce  ashes  that  arc  exceedingly rich  In   potash, containing 12.20 per cent.,  while the pear tree, as may be noticed,  produces more potash in its ashes than  does hickory.      These facts make the  purchase  of wood ashes  a matter of  uncertainty, so far as the actual value  to the farmer is concerned, for unless  ie is informed of the kind    of wood  from which they arc made he will have  ao knowledge of the amount of pot-  ������sh   they   contain.      Should   he   pur-  :hase butternut tree ashes lie will not  get jone-half as much potash as from  hickory ashes,   while ashes   from old  jrces, young shoots, limbs, trunks and  branches differ, even from  ;he same tree. , The bags  tontaining a lot of ashes will also  wry in percentage of potash, while he  ���������vill also find it very difficult to distinguish leached from unleached ashes.  Then, again, the weight of ashes depends largely upon the humidity of the  .tmosphcre. If purchased when the  weather is damp there will be more  moisture in the ashes than during dry  weather, as they quickly absorb mois-  ;ure. Analysis of ashes shows that ���������  aiffercnt lots vary greatly.  Potash alone does_ not give value to  ashes as they contain phosphoric acid  md lime, 'lhe recognized averagefor  jnleached ashes-is 5 per cent, of polish, I 1-3 per cent of. phosphoric acid  md 32 1-2 per cent, of lime. A ton  of ashesi therefore/contains 100 pounds  of potash (worth about $5), 30 pounds  of phosphoric acid (worth about Si.so),  ind 650 pounds of lime. The value of  :he ashes depends upon' the potash and  nhosphoric acid, the total being $6.50',  is the lime is given no value in fertilizers that are purchased as such, yet  ,'t really has a value, which is the same  is the market value for stone lirrte. The  jroportions of phosphoric acid and  lime also vary according to the kind of  ishes, but owing to their bulk for shipment, and the fact that they are some-  limes leached before put upon the mar-  cet, the price of ashes is frequently  nuch greater than-their actual value to  she farmer. Every farmer, however,  thould carefully .save all the ashes  nade from-wood on-the farm. .Coal  ishes have little or no value as fertilizers. Corncobs, thc cuttings from  rines and trees, and even dead weeds, -  nake ashes which are rich in potash,  ������ut the ashes should be kept under  ihelter and not allowed to become wet.  is they are more easily applied on the  and when in a perfectly dry condi-  ���������ion. If mixed with barnyard mantra thry-causc- loss of._ammonia from  ���������he heap, but ashes and" manure may  te applied on land at the same time and  worked into the soil.. Potash in ash-  :s is in a pure, uncombined state; very  :austic, and at once exerts a chemical  ind mechanical effect on the soil.while  hat in fertilizers is combined as a  'salt," with acids, of which about one-  ialf only is pure potash.  As there are about 600 pounds of  ime in a ton of wood ashes, it is apparent that some of the benefits im-  jarted to land by ashes is through the  'ime, which is in the finest possible  ���������ondition, and is also produced from  vegetable matter ; that is. unlike stone  ime, it has been used in the growth.,  3f plants and returned for use again in  :he wood ashes. But the objection to  Buying lime in wood ashes is that in  iuch form it is costly, for if a ton of  wood ashes cost $10, and the value of:  '.he potash and phosphoric acid is  ������6.50, as stated, the 650 pounds of lime'  would cost the farmer $3.50, and, as  .ie can buy stone lime much cheaper,  ie will not be benefited corrcsponderit-  ly by purchasing ashes in-order to pro-  :ure the lime. Lime sells at from 50  :ents to $t per barrel, the cost of thc  sure lime being 31 1-2 cents per ico  pounds when lime is 75 cents per barrel, while the cost of transportation  ���������nay be bat a small sum if the lime can  oc procured near thc farm. Ashes  :ontain all thc mineral elements of the  woods from which they are derived,  which includes also soda, magnesia,  silica, etc., but the nitrogenous matter  Is eliminated during the burning of tho  wood.. Farmers who desire to use  ishes will probably find them profitable  if the pr'.e does not exceed $7 per  ton for unleached, but some lots may  be worth more. Fruit growers have  a preference for aa'ics, as they serve  to neutralize thc acids of the soil  when vegetable mai'er is ploughed under, and for clover, peas, etc., ashes  ������rc also excellent.���������Philadelphia Record.  ,Pu_*_c Opinion-publishes the following condensed translation of an article  'which recently appeared in Thc Figaro,  Paris:���������Wc should enlighn-11 those who  teem to think that .the mobilization of  2^0,000 men is a con-sidci-ablc step for  Turkey.   The fact of tlie matter is that  it   present  the  Turkish   army    could  muster twenty classes, each containing  $5,000 men, which, by allowing a large  percentage for loss, makes a mass of  about 1,500,000 men.    Thus, in giving  thc order to mobilize ���������.���������40,-00, thc -Sul-  'an only places the seventh part of his  army in motion.   Thc figure of 240,000  men docs not represent even one-half  of lhe  force  that Turkey,  hy  calling  iipon all of the reserves, could place in  Macedonia alone.  For clearness of demonstration it is  necessary   to   state   that  the  Turkish  army is composed (1; of the corps of  the  regular army,    thc    strength    of  which depends on whether or not it is  in a  state  of  mobilization,    that    is,  whether it is on a war or peace footing; (2) of thc divisions of the reserve  corresponding to the corps of the regular  army;   (3)   of thc  battalions of  milita, also corresponding to the corps  of the regular army, and (4) of the excess  from the first two classes, from  which there are formed complcincnlar}  battalions.  The second corps of the army, with  a base at Adrianoplc, and the third,  with -a base at Monastir, are, because  of their strategic positions, ihe strongest of thci Ottoman army, tin*, number  of men being greater than in the other  corps.   They comprise different bodies  of  troops  taken  from  other  military  subdivisions, thc second corps of the  active army being composed on a war  footing as follows:  Infantry���������Two    divisions,    comprls-  lntr 22 battalions; also two battalions of* cavalry, 'of 900 men each. 30,600  Cavalry���������One division, compHsins 30  squadrons of 153 men each ........   4,690  Field   Artillery ��������� Tlueo   brigades,  comprising   41'   battalions,   of    140  men  each   ...... ....5,710  Formication Artillery���������Three battalion*., nf 10 companies, of _50 men  each   .....    2.C0O  Howitzer***���������One   regiment,  comprls-  ���������������������������iiiK six batteries, of 1*10 men each.     810  ���������EiiBlneel'H���������I*"our,-.uORipanlcs,   of   200  men each .......    800  BnKjasi*���������Six companies, of 150 men  each ....      900  45,970  Thus thc force of this corps on a  war footing, but without the reserve,  's 45*970'men.

If, now,  we consider the reserves, which are  formed at the rate- of- four divisions  per corps for thc infantry of the re-'  gular ar'tny and four regiments per  corps for the cavalry, we have a total  reserve:for these two corps of 102,400  men, which, added to thc^ figures of  tlie active army, gives a total of 240,-  000 men in round numbers for the regular and reserve forces of the second  and third corps���������thc number which advices from the front tell us. were mobilized.  * Th_se two corps if the Sultan's European army are in reality the very  soul of the Turkish military establishment, and they are continually���������in diverse degrees���������in a state of mobilization. The Sultan ordered the mobilization of 240,000 men, that is, he added to  the" 140,000 men of the active army the  102,000 of the reserves, which is no extraordinary thing from a military  standpoint, although it may be from  a political.  __ffect of London's Smoke.  A startling indictment of London  smoke and its disastrous effects upon  the health of the metropolis was formulated at the meeting of the Coal  Smoke Abatement Society held reccnt-  Jy at the Duke of Westminster's Gros  Tesla's Wireless Method.  Jj*    ������^_v*.-    *_*..-.*-    _.     ..   venoif'House- under- the-pr.sidcncy-of  the Duke of Argyll, according to The  London Daily Mail.  ,- The everlasting pall of smoke habitually robs London of half its due amount  of sunlight. The investigations of the  Meteorological Society have proved  this fact. Speakers at a recent meeting declared that smoke clogs the pores  of the skin, lacerates the mucous membrane of the lungs, poisons the blood,  and by reducing the vitality- weakens  the power of self-cootrol, and drives  men to the public houses for the false  support of alcohol. Smoke destroys  trees and flowers; spoils works of art,  fouls food and clothes, and eats away  buildings.  , This is the state of things which the  Smoke Abatement Society has been  striving for three years to remedy. It  has succeeded in depriving London  fogs ol their ancient power of stinging  the: eyes and choking the throat. Sir  William Richmond, R.A.,: went so far  as to aver th.it the beautiful abnormal  February weather was largely attributable to thc Smoke Abatement Society.

Ammonia in the House.  I have often read of the great aid  rendered the housekeeper by ammonia,  but, as happens in the case of much  of the,other good advice, it was absolutely thrown away on mc until quite  lately. I one day went to work to  clean thc silver, and as there was quite  a little of it I was prepared for a long  job and a most disagreeable one. An  old aunt who was with me proposed  a wash" in strong soapsuds, with a dash  of ammonia, when lo, at the expense  of a good washing and wiping it was  restored*to thc sideboard with a lustre I had never been able to- obtain  with polish or whiting���������and unlimited  elbow grease. More, the filigree work  was cleaned perfectly, without any of  the white sediment left that is so difficult, nay, almost impossible to get out.  The knives, forks and spoons had to  have a little rubbing with whiting to  remove the discoloration, but nothing  to what was usually required.���������The  Household.  Mc. Donley on Keeping Lent  Most Attractive Age.  It was Thackeray who decided that  the age of the Venus of Milo was 32.  This we may take as an expert authority, and so regard 32 as thc era when  a woman, is at her perfect moment of  full bloom. Certainly, it would seem  that from this on to forty are the  years when she is most apt to feel and  to inspire great love. Someone has  announced that Cleopatra was thirty-  eight when she and Anthony '.'kissed  away kingdoms," and someone else has  declared that Helen of Troy was nearly forty when Paris was smitten'with  her beauty and embroiled the gods and  heroes in battle. And as these two  ladies have a reputation for attractiveness unequalled since Eve gave ear to  the serpent, we may take it that the  age of charm is nearer the days of  Indian summer than thc days of spring  buds and young leaves.���������From an article on Woman's Perfect Age," in Ain-  slee's Magazine.

Pills are a convenient form, and fot  poultry they never need be larger than  four or five grains; but better than  these pills are gelatine capsules, which  my own poultry will pick up off the  ground. If I want to give one of my  own fowls a dose of medicine, I have  only to get it into a corner by itself  and throw down a raspberry-colored  capsule, and the bird will pick it up of  its own accord and swallow it whole.  This is in realty far better than having  to get a fowl and force a pill down its  throat, and I want to emphasize, the  importance of treating a sick fowl as  you would treat a sick child; do not"  _make.it worse , by having a struggle  "every time a-dose ���������of-medicine��������� is  .necessary. Failing a capsule, a _ small  pill will generally be taken without  difficulty by a fowl if it is placed in  the middle of a little piece of moist  bread.  There is another point. Most people seem to have very crude ideas as  to what constitutes a "dose" for a  fowl. I come across people sometimes  who think nothing of giving a large  pinch of cayenne pepper to a fowl. I  have known as much as a quarter of a  teaspoonful to.be given to one unfortunate bird.' When the farmer is  tempted to give cayenne pepper to his  birds, let him remember that one grain  of cayenne pepper makes eight doses  for a full-grown fowl. The use of  cayenne pepper is as an occasional���������a  very occasional���������internal irritant, the  object .of which is to act slightly upon  thc liver or to excite the digestive, organs and make lhem a little more sensitive than usual. The folly of overdosing must be one which causes more  suffering to poultry than to any other  members of the animal kingdom. I  can g'wr* another instance. I hear ol  people giving a tahlcspoonful of cod-  liver oil to a fowl, and I always tell  lhem that if thev would give a. full-  grown fowl fifteen drops (that is to  say,' Just exactly onc-sixtccnlh of a  tablcspoonful) three times a day it  would do a great deal more good; for  the system of a fowl can only assimilate a small quantity of thc chlorides  antl the bromides and thc phosphates  and the iodides in cod-liver oil, an !  what is given beyond that is waste,  or worse - than waste, for it  tends to cause hypertrophy oi  the liver. Small doses of 'medicin*  given frequently and rc'gularly are in  finitely better than big doses given mr  systematically and sp-ismodicnlly.���������V  M. Freeman,   in American Cultiv-*'"-.

American farmers and . newspaper  nen are very likely to become 'great  Jeneficiaries of a great scheme of cooperation in making the most of tho  torn crop, says The St. Paul Pioneer  Press. Not of the grain merely, but  if the whole plant, stalk, leaves, pith,  ���������assels,'-'---husks,' cobs and kernels. Af-  cr a long course of experimentation,  Tarried on a Kankakee, 111., under the  Incouragement of thc National Agri-  ���������ultural Department, if is found that  ligh grade paper can be profitably  manufactured, in different varieties,  from various parts of the plant. One  kind is made from the hard shell of the  italk, another from the pith, and a third  from the husk. "From the pith is  turned out the finest grade of oil paper,  Almost equal to linen paper," so it is  claimed by experts at the department.  A machine has been invented, and is  now being manufactured, which will  take the cornstalk, with the ear still on  it, husk the ear, separate thc husk from  the stalk, -.nd then remove the shell  from the pith. Sending this machine  into the fields, the paper manufacturers  will propose to farmers to buy their  corn crops as they-stand .in the fields.  If the farmers wish the corn after it  has been husked, it will be passed back  to them ; otherwise it will be marketed by the owner oi. the ma-hinc, who  will convert every remaining, part of  the plant into some form of manufacture.

These thoughts and feelings brought  the rich color to her, checks, and a look  of.sweetness and softness to her great  dark eyes.  Astley met her eyes, smiled a little,  and looked down as he went on:  "Yes. I fell in love with a girl I met  one winter, when I wiis staying up at  my cousin's, the most beautiful girl, I  still think, that I ever saw in my,, life."  He paused, and Norma made an impatient little gesture, urging him to go  on.  "I don't suppose she ever bared for me  much;: she married me because it waa a  Eood'match for her, though it would  ave been a very poor one for any girl  of, my own rank. She was the sister of  a doctor's wife who lived near Astley  Haigh, and it was at the doctor's house  I met her.

And if only your uncle would  fling open the door while we were enjoy-  ' ing our cutlet, I feel that the dramatic  es well as the humorous possibilities of  life would be exhausted."  "Whatever happens to you nothing  iver seems able to make you sad or even  serious," said Norma with interest;  They were by this time seated opposite  each other.at the little Cable, and Norma  was able to examine with earnest scru-  ���������tiny_the face-of-tbe-man-she-had-mar--  ri ed. A typical English face it was, with  ���������n originally fair skin tanned and reddened by the open air and the African  sun, with smooth and shining mouse-  colored hair, a moustache with a suspicion of ginger color in it, fairly, well cut  features, and honest blue eyes/ Astley  had the further attraction of that: exceedingly clean, trim: look so distinctive  of the upper class Englishman, and par*  . ticularly of .the army man.  When he be*  San to* return her-.scrutiny, she looked  own on the white table cloth, and tried  ' to think of something to say.  .

"Doesn't it "occur to you.that I may  have gone, through experiences so sad  and serious that nothing less than a real  misfortune can disturb me? And, whatever, cause you may have to look upon  our���������what'shall I(call it?���������partnership?  ���������as a misfortune, it certainly doesn't  appear in that light to me."  .  Norma bent her, head and blushed.,,  ��������� "Of course," she said gently; "your fll-,  ."  ness, and being wounded, and all that,  were  misfortunes;   but  that  isn't  the  sort of thing that eats into one, is it?"  "Oh, no," said he readily. . "I don't  count those things at all. ' I've gone  through much worse things than that, I  can assure you, things that would, I really think, make you wonder tbat" you  could- call your troubles misfortunes at  all."  He was serious enough now; and something in his voice thrilled .Norma, and  made her look at him with eyes full of  ehy, sympathetic interest.  "Really?" whispered she.  Ho smiled a little.  "I've a good mind," said he slowly, "to  tell you what they were. But I'm not  sure. It might give you a lesson in contentment, but, on the other hand, it  might pain you, disgust you."  VToll me, whispered Norma after a  pause, and wiWioufi raising her eyes.  not hope to deceive myself any longer."  Astley hurried on, with .an uneasy  frown on his face: "As soon as I got  home I set enquiries on foot, found that  the news was' only too true, and at once  caused the divorce papers to be served  on her at her mother's house at Leamington, where she was than living. You  may judge of my horror when, immediately afterwards, I learnt that she  wast dead."  .   Norma gave a little gasp of horror.  "At first I wondered whether it was  .true;';, hen I resolved to go up there my-  .'scJJ-and found it was no fiction, as I  ha'd'-'for.a moment suspected. She was  "lying in her coflin when I got to her  mother's house.  "Did you see her?" something prompted-Norma to whisper breathlessly.  He shook his head.  " "No. But it was quite true," he said,  in a low voice. "Well, we won't talk  any more about it. But, now you'll un*  derstand better why it is that I can't  tee the tragedy of small miseries so  plainly as you do."  Norma was terribly shocked and remorseful. She began to think, as she  might indeed have thought before, that  she had no right to bring fresh anxieties  into this man's life.  She became uneasy,  gentle, almost tearful; and, try as hs  would to raise her spirits, _. tley could  get nothing but soft and ������_ -lrccatory  answers and.looks from her until they  had finished dinner, and he was seeing  her home.  , She _was still oppressed by the feeling  that her selfishness had been unexampled, and prco. ntly she told him so.  Ue laughed at her fears. '  "You are selfish!" he admitted simply.  "And quite absurdly sensitive and impulsive. But I did what I did with my  eyes open, quite willingly. I suppose I  was selfish, too, and bent upon getting  a new sensation out of life, the sensation  of being married to a lady who was not  my wife." "' '.i  She was walking beside him, hut not  very close: he saw that she shivered at  his words.  "I���������I didn't know what you'd gone  through," she stammered hoarsely. "You  .only said that you were 'a poor devil'���������  that was what you,called yourself���������who  didn't know 'how to manage on 'a pitiful  pension'���������that was what you called it.  So���������so���������f ' '**.  *  , "So you were quite justified, and not  to blame a'bit," added Astley .cheerily,  'v And then, silence fell on them.both.  On Astley, because this unburdening of  his life's secret had '.made him thoughtful;" on Norma, because she -began to  fancy that, the woman whom she had  seen in'the'hoter'ceurtyard-w.is hovering about, following them sometimes on  the one side of the street, and sometimes  on the other. * .  She could not, however, be sure enough  of the woman's figure to-think it worth  while to mention her fancies to Astley;  and it was not until he had left her on  her uncle's doorstep, after her fiat re.  fusal to let him come in and brave tho  storm, that ehe was sure, on seeing the  same figure close behind Astley, that the  woman* whom she had "seen in the hotel  office had followed them to her uncle's  house, and was now following Astley  back again.  He had been very anxious to come in  and "beard the lion in his den," which  waa the wey' he expressed his intention  of encountering the displeasure of Mrs.  Bascot.

' "I expect," she shrewdly said, "they  will have been so frightened by my disappearance this evening that they will  be inclined to 'climb down' a little, and  to make it easier for me than seemed'  likely this afternoon."  Her expectations proved to be well  founded. Her aunt and uncle, realizing*  that her marriage wna an accomplished:  fact, and that she was now indeed mistress of her person and her money, had  had time to learn the bitter truth that  their solicitude had overreached itself,  and that in trying to force on the girl* n*  distasteful marriage in their own interests, they hnd but hastened the time  when she would emancipate herself from  their control.  Tliey were heartily thankful to seo her  back, and both took care to assure her  that they were sorrv for tho manner of  tlieir. reception of the news of her marriage, and anxious for her to remain  witli them as long as she plouscd. For  Norma told them that sho was quite  ready to stay with t'rem, if they wished,  until Astloy's visit to his cousin at Astley Haigh was over.  So the stormy and eventful day ended  peacefully, and Norma woke next morning in a very chastened "mood, half regretting hor hasty action in getting married to Astley, and yet at the same time  anxious to see him again. He had become a very interesting personality since  her discovery of his history: she,oould  think of little else.  ���������-,.��������� And the woman? -The myst. ���������...������������������������������ woman?   Who oould she bo?  CHAPTER VI-   *  Now Norma was Boon to discover that  a distinct change had taken ..place in  the attitude of her family towards her  since the night before.  Then they had been all contrition for-  their anger and unkindness on hearing  >f her marriage. Now, however, that they  recognized more fully the position of  -Hairs, and began, too, to have dim  doubts whether she had not married  rather to spite them than to please herself, a reaction was inevitable. So at  reakfost Mr. Bascot . was stiff, Mrs.  Bascot was reserved, and Robert was  irritating and inquisitive.  The two gentlemen, to Norma's great  relief, had to go away, soon after breakfast, to their respective duties; but her  . aunt was more difficult to escape from.  And when the young girl had settled  dowii to some needlework by the dining-  room fire, Mrs. Bascot glided into tho  room,;sat down opposite with a basket  of undarned socks, "and fastened upon  her prey.  "Rather an unfortunate circumstance  for you; this marriage of Sir Hugh Ast-  ley's, isn't it?" was her first remark, as  she explored a defective heel, and began  to draw the sides of a yawning gap together.  Norma's face flushed, nnd she bit her  lip,'but in a moment she recovered herself and said:  ;: "How���������unfortunate for me?"  "Oh, my dear girl, surely you know  that, at present, Air. Astley Darwcn is  the heir to thc baronetcy as well ns the  property of his-cousin: but now that  Sir Hugh is going to marry, he may  very likely have a son to succeed him.',  "Indeed, I hope he will,", replied Norma quickly. "And I'm sure Astley  wishes his cousin every happiness."  "Of course, of course, my dear. - Still,  it's not in human nature to be pleased  at losing such brilliant prospects. And  I suppose it was .this change in his life  which made Mr. Darwen anxious to  make a good match."..  These words slipped out quite simply,  and as if thc speaker had no afterthought in her mind. But Norma well  understood the ill-nature whicli prompted the speech, and it was with difficulty  that she controlled lier rising temper.  . "Was he anxious to make a good  match?" she asked quietly. "I didn't  know that he was; and yet I think I  ought to know as much about his ways  of looking at life as anyone here."  "Don't be angry, my dear.- Nobody is  blaming him. But tell me now, isn't it  true that the marriage is a better one  for him than for you? From a worldly  point of view, of course?"  "I think it's a good match, as you call  tt, for both of us," said Norma, with  ipirit. "1 marry a man of excellent  family and social position. He marries  a woman with a little money, to help  to keep the position up. I think he is  the most charming man I ever met; and  I suppose he's satisfied with me, or he  wouldn't have married me."  It was still wilh a little catch of tut  breath that Norma uttered those words  ���������husband," 'wife,' 'marriage,' and with a  burning sense of the strange * position  in which ehe had placed herself. Mrs.  Bascot laughed a little.  "Well, since, according to you, it was  the best possible match for both of you,  what reason had you for keeping the  matter_eo_.very_.dark, _and__fqr_ getting  married at a registry oflice? A thing  people don't usually do when everything  is as it should be, and there are no obstacles in the way."  "There were obstacles; at least, there  was one," "said : Norma, readily. "If I  had said anything about it, you would  have moved heaven and earth to prevent my marrying at all."  Her aunt's face flushed*angrily.  "Indeed, you have no right to say any  nich thing!" said Bhe, tartly. "What  reason could I have had for trying to  Erevent a marriage which, if I am to be-  eve you, is the best possible for both  of you?"  "Oh, jrou know as well as I do," said  "Norma, in a low voice.  And Mrs. Bascot, feeling that the  ground was rather delicate, did not pursue that part of the subject.  "It's* quite true," she said, after a  short pause, "that I should have insisted on a decent interval between your,  jngagement and your marriage, that-  you might have made the acquaintance  of some of his family, and so not have  been subjected to tiie slight of being  married without knowing any of his.  people." .-    -  - "' *������������������- ���������-    v.  "How-is it������a slight?"' asked Norma.  /It was.by "our own choice that we  didn't consult anybody, either his friends  or mine."' ,  "And thc consequence is that he proposes to go on to*his cousin's,1 and to  leave you here," said Mrs. Bascot, drily.  Norma drew her breath sharply  through lier teeth.  "It was my wish," said she. "Of  course the wedding of a man'I don't  Know couldn't be very interesting; to  inc."  "Still, it is a sort of slight** upon you,  that your husband shouldn't take you  with him to Darwcn Haigh, isn't it?"  "You had better speak to Astley himself, when he comes to-day, and see what  lie thinks," said Norma; and, not trust-  inz herself  to say  more,  she. left  the  room.' abruptly, and took, her weft ttp-  -toirs.  Bow impatient she- was for Astley te*  arrive, and to take her part against  these unsympathetic people I It had  been arranged that he was to corae just  after luncheon, when the gentlemen of  tlie family would be at home, so that he  might "beard then*" all together.  And the girl was surprised to find  that her heart beat quite as fast, and  very nearly as joyously, ut the thought  or seeing him again, as if indeed they  hod made a love* match, and had been  dying for each oilier.  More and more did the feeling grow  upon; her that this generous, chivalrous,  quixotic gerrtloman was in truth what  she hud called him, "the most charming  man in the world," aird more and nrore  strongly did she see that sho had taken  an urrdue advantage of his good nature,  Vi using him ns a means to free herself  Irom the thraldom in which alio was  kept at her aunt's.  in this mood of repentance, tho only  lonsolntion Norma had wns in the  thought that she really could help Astley in a" substantial manner, by means  of the fortune which was now her own.  She resolved that, tho moment ho returned from Darwen Hnigh after his  cousin's wedding, she would get him to  tako her to London, and would call upon  her late mother's solicitors, and make  an arrangement whereby four hundred  a year of her money should be paid direct to Astley every year, whether ho  liked it or not. It should be paid by  tlie solicitors, without her saying a word  to prepare him; as otherwise she knew  that. he would refuse and protest. With  the remaining three hundred a year of  her own money Norma knew that ehe  could not only live comfortably in one  of the charitable settlements in the East  End of London of which she had heard  , and read,, but oould give substantial aid  to such charities as seemed to her  worthy-of help. *������������������  For, with a not uncommon blindness,  Norma, while she had freed herself by  in act of undoubted selfishness, was  quite determined upon devoting her life  to the good cause of helping others.  When she hod to go down to luncheon, her heart was beating very fast,  and all through the meal she started at  the least Bound, listening nervously for  a ring at the bell.  But the time pas������ed, and Astley did  not come. More and more anxious and  nervous did Norma become as three  o'clock struck and then four, und the tea  was brought in, and still Astley did not  appear.  ��������� Mr. Bascot had had to go out again,  audi Robert, who spent the aftei noun at  home, did everything in* his power to  make the time pass ns unpleasantly as  possible for Norma, in revenge for what  Ire chose to consider liei* bud treatment  Df himself.  Although she declared that Astley hnd  not snid at what time he would call, it  was evident fo her aunt and cousin tliat  she was bitterly disappointed and miserable as the hours passed, and he did not  arrive.  Robert took occasion to sneer at his  successful rival's remissness.  . "I suppose it always happens, as thoy  .say," snid he, lisping out the words over  his bread and butter, "that ladies think  more of.a man who lets them wait for  liim than they do of one who pays them  too much attention. But I must say,  Korma, though no doubt you admire  }*our husband for -it, I should be  ashamed of such conduct if "I were in  his place." *  . "He has been unavoidably detained,"  said Norma, trying to disguise the restlessness she felt," as* she played with the  tassel of the blind-cord, looking wistfully and eagerly down the road. "You  know him better, both you and aunt,  than to think he could be guilty of discourtesy." _ * ���������* ,  "Indeed, we know very little about  liim," except that lie was an impecunious person on the lookout for a wife  with money," said Robert, sweetly.  "I've known peopleto whom that de-  icription would apply, certainly," retorted Norma, with as much" fire as if  .lie had been passionately in love with  ier husband of the business-marriage,  "but there is no one in the world to  whom it applies so little as it docs to  Astley Darwen."

But it didn't pass���������it spread, and infected the husband; and the week-to-week  biographies of Poddies, instead of a solo,  became a duet. Sometimes, in fleeting  moments of sanity, when. Poddies was  out of the room, never if he wns present,  the talk would become rational, but it  was infallibly cheeked in mid-career by  the beast's waddling, grunting entrance  hailed by a yell���������I can use no milder  word���������of besotted admiration from wife  husband, or both: "Oh, look at her!  Isn't she lovely!" and followed by n  gabble of ungrammatieal and mispronounced expressions of endearment supposed to be suited to her nude, standing.  My suffering from Poddies is no longer active.

The phrase  Iwas inen'nt as a humorous exaggeration,  ,but it "ivns the statement of a plain fact  I had been too blind to see. Poddies  was, and is, really the mistress of the  house.

He Watched    the  Cow.-J-When  Sir  Stafford Northcote, afterwards the Earl  of Iddcsleigh, was an officer in a yeomanry regiment in Devonshire, one of  the men who was leading a.small force  across the country was taking a rather  circuitous instead of a straight course.  "Why don't you keep your eye on a  given  point ?"  asked his officer.  "I do, sir."  "Well, what point ?"     '  "That old cow, sir," replied the man.  The Earl was often known'to iise this  anecdote when political leaders did not  go straight���������Illustrated Bits.  ���������.���������������������������  A lady, who is a district visitor, became much interested in a very poor,  but apparently respectable, Irish family  named Curran, living on the top floor  of a great.building in a slum district-of"  her parish.  Every time ,she visited" trie Currans  she was annoyed by the staring and the  whispering of.the other}.women living  in the building. One day she said to  ,Mrs. Curran: ***       '  "Your neighbors seem very curious  to know who. and what I am, and the  nature of my 'business with you."  * "They do," acquiesced Mrs. Curran.  "Do they ask you 'about it?" .  "Indade they do, ma'am.",  "And do you tell them?"'  'Vaith, thin, an' Oi do not."  "What do you tell them?"  "Oi just tell thim," was the calm reply, "that you are me dressmaker, an'  let it go at that"  Crimean veterans recall Genera!  Sir' George Brown, who commanded  the" Light Division, as the typical  repmseiitative of old-fashioned "pipeclay" traditions. Sir George's extremes  though, were not a whit more extravagant in the one direction than (so report insists) Colonel Sum .Steele's have  been on the other. Colonel Steele, it  mny be remembered, led the Stratlicorr.is  in the late war. Though probably hall  the stories told about him are inventions  or exaggerations, his name is "still a  household word among colonials in South  .Africa, One day a llritish ollicer complained to Steele that he met troopers ol  the Strathcona Horse who did not salute  'him. "Why, confound them," was the  answer, "they won't even salute me!" "  It is acknowledged that Sam Steele  knew his men thoroughly and got an  immense deal of good work out of them  .Still incidents like the following do not  make for military discipline. They are  attested by a Toronto man lately back  frem South Africa:  "They say General Buller was annoyed  at him, but soon got over it -Steele, in  his shirt sleeves and smoking his famous  short clay pipe, would sit at thc door of  his tent when Buller and his staff came  riding past. The first time this happened  eve_y-ody__wns_petrified_except__Colonel  Sam, who was quite at his ease. 'Well,  General/ he said, 'anything doing today?' General Buller politely stated  that nothing special was being done.  'Well," said Colonel Steele, 'I think you  should send a bunch of the boys, oft* to  the right there. The blankcty blank  Boers are fiddling round over there all  right enough.'"  It was Colonel Sam Steele, too, who.  heing invited by Lord Milner to Government House at Capetown,, declined the  invitation'on the ground that "things of  that kind weren't in:his line."

He gave" his order, then leaned  against the bar for support.  A man ^standing nearby took from  one pocket'nn addressed envelope and  from another a stamp, which he moistened with his tongue. Instead of adhering to the envelope, _s the man intended, the stamp slipped from his fingers and fluttered to the floor.  The tippler saw it fall and staggered  forward to pick it up. Just as he was  about to grasp it the stamp darted in  a zigzag course toward the side wall,  like a scared thing. Filled with astonishment the drinker drew hack and  intently watched the hit of paper,  which, upon reaching the wall, begao.  to ascend.  As it ascended, the tippler's face  grew more intent, his body more rigid.  Hn saw nothing but the mysterious,  moving thing. His mind was soggy  from years of ceaseless drinking. He  thous-ht that the animated stamp wa?  a warning.  At the top of the wainscoting the  stamp stopped, squatted -ns If for a  moment's rest before ascending higher,  nnd'then made a dart toward the tippler's haggard face.

I was riding in a wild part of Colorado, far from the whistle of a railroad  train or the sound of a church bell,  and as I neared my destination, the  mining town of Silver Creek, I felt the  necessity of a shave, my beard being  of a week's growth. I carried a razor  with me and expected to be my own  tonsbrial artist. So I rode up to an indolent-looking man seated iu the doorway of a hoard shanty and asked for  the privilege of making myself human.  "Why don't you let the barber shave  you?" he asked.  "What barber?" I inquired, in surprise.  "Dave Jones,* over yonder;"  I followed his eyes and saw a neat  oarber shop, with all tbe latest adornments ot the trade.  "How is lt I didn't see that when I  fode up?" I asked.  "Didn't look, probably, stranger; I  .an recommend it. for I am shaved  there myself sometimes."  I offered "the man a fee, but he refused it promptly. Not so with a  flaBk I extracted from my saddle bags,  from which he took a generous pull.  He was a welrd-Iooklng object, with  uncut hair and deep, glowing eyes, hut  he spoke like an educated man.  Dismounting and hobbling my horse,  I entered the shop, and to my surprise  found that the barber was a colored)  man and good at Ills trade.  The place was finely fitted up, only  there were no suctomers, and, as far  there were no customers, and, as far  as I could see. only one mug was*in  evidence, and that had not seen service.    I seated myself ln a luxurious  chair and Dave Shaved me with neatness and dispatch, talking glibly after  the fashion of his kind, to amuse me.  "Ever dream, salt?" _.  "Do you mean do I dream of certain  numbers?" I asked in return, knowing  the fondness of his folk for the policy  shop.  "No, sab; it am always about watch-  1 es���������yoh  chin   am  as   smoove  as   silk  now, sab���������sometimes deys gold watches, an' sometimes tleys silver, an' one,  sail���������would    you    believe it?���������was    a  duplex, an* I says I'm sell dose watch,  an' gets lots of money.

I expressed my sympathy, having  had a similar experience in dreams,  and being now shaved I asked the barber how much I owed htm.  ."Two bits, sah," he answered  promptly, and after struggling a moment with my" calculating powers, 1  threw down the smallest piece of silver  in my purse, a SO cent piece. If I expected to get any change back my expectations were not realized. Dave  did not touch* tbe money, but stood  gazing with a curious smile on his  dusky countenance.  I rode off, passing near enough to  the man who had directed me to bear  him call:  "-Get a good shave?" ,  "First class," I called backhand 1  ran my hand over my chin, confirming the barber's remark, "smoove as  silk."  I reached Silver Creek at nightfall,  and found the hotel where I put up all  astir over a dance to be given thero  that night.  "Well, I'm shaved, at any rate," I  __id, fingering my chin.  But what! My face was as rough a3  a nutmeg grater! A week-old beard  covered my face with its stubble. I  imagined I was in a brain fever, and  hurried to tho landlord.  "Do I need shliving?" I asked as  calmly as I could.  He regarded me critically,  "Well, now, that depends, stranger.  It you air a sheriff,,or-even .a deputy'  that un-common growth of ' beard  would be a good digitise.

Then, by connivance of the chaperon;  he had her off to look for wild flowers.  Tbey climbed thc rocks, nnd there they  found cactus, or', at least, something  that looked exactly like cactus of the  Western   plains.

They looked Innocent  enough, but when the young man undertook to squeeze her hand she discovered, and he, bb well, that the tiny  white hairs were so many almost invisible needles. They sat themselves  down on a rock, and he went to work,  gently, with his handkerchief, to rid  her dainty hands of the torturing whits  "stickers."  Yon can't urge the advantages of the  Omaha climate on  a girl  who    says  'Ouch!" every time you take her hand,  you know.   The young man bided his  time, and when the little hands were  free of needles, he took his handkerchief and quite abspntly blew hiB noBe:  If you have ever blown your nose on  a  handkerchief    loaded   with    cactus  spines you know what happened.

Tlie Widower ia a migratory bird, and'  ������t intervals makes its appearance in  ������"very community, but so greatly is it  tsteemed as a household pet, and so keen  is tho pursuit nfter it, that ic rarely  escapes tho net of the fowler for long,  ind few of the species are to be seen at  large.  ln appearance the Widower is what  nay 'be called interesting rather than  beautiful, though it varies greatly at  tnlferent ages, when it is young it has  <_ sad and melancholy air, and utters  plaintive notes that make every female  who hears it long to console it. But  this sorrowful swuu song lasts only dur-  fog the first few months.   After that it  Eows chirpy and chipper, und blithely  rols a merry roundelay that greatly  lJeseiT_!ble8 "A Hot lime in the Old Town  Xo-night."  The plumage of the Widower is also  worthy of note, for it has the peculiar,  Uutmeleon-like quality of changing under different conditions. During coptivi-  fy it'almost invariably wears a garb of  (ombre hue unfashionable in cut, and  frequently conspicuously unpreened and  unkempt.  The moment, however, it becomes free  Estrange bird blossoms forth in a  itifu_ and gorgeor. cont of lively  i that is calculated to catch the eye  trom a distance; but as soon as it is  again caught and oaged it molts its fine  feathers and resumes its unattractive  appearance.  No one ha_ ever been able to account  for this idiosyncrasy, but the phenomenon of the Widower doing his lightning  change act into a butterfly, or back into  a grub, may be witnessed daily. This  peculiarity, unfortunately, often causes  great disappointment to the owners, as  not infrequently a female goes to great  trouble to capture a Widower, thinking  tt a Bird of Paradise, only to discover  when ahe has got it home that it is  nothing but a scarecrow. Thus, from this  simple circumstance, docs nature teach  us not to buy a bird by its looks.  Concerniug the anatomy of the .Widower ornithologists differ greatly, though  all agree that it is All Heart. Some authorities contend, * however, that, this  organ, in size and shape, is like an omnibus, while others hold thnt it is of thc  elasticity and durability of a football.  It is interesting to observe that some of  the most earnest nnd painstaking investigators along this line of scientific research ore women, and we may confidently look for valuable light to be thrown  on the subject in thc near future.  The chief characteristic of the Widower is, as has been stated, its ability to  arise from the ashes of the funeral pyre  ���������as long as it is its wife's funeral���������with  renewed youth. Reputable eye-witnesses  d-eclaire that they have seen one of these  birds, droopy, with draggled tail feath-  <- ere, and one leg swathed in red flannel  bandages for rheumatism, suddenly metamorphosed into n. giddy, young tiring  that could dance the two-step and' stay  up nil night, and that looked like a two-  year-old. II. has also been observed that  the oftener the Widower arises from the  ashes tho younger it becomes, until after  about the third rejuvenation nothing but  a debutante is young enough to attract  its attention.  In its habits tire Widower is a curious  combination of thc fly bird and the barnyard fowl, for while 'its giddy flights are  interesting it is admirable because "it  knowB how to scratch for a, living. It  has, too, generally a well-lined nest, instead of having to build one.  In a way tho Widower has something  of the predatory characteristics of the  hawk, and knows that tire only way to  get a thing is to take it, and this causes  it to often pounce upon the most charming young pullet in the bunch and bear  her away, under the very eyes of. her  chaperon.-" On the whole, though, it conducts its love-making after the manner  of the nightingale, and sings a song of  such surpassing sweetness that no heart  can resist it.  There are many reasons why women  should have a {-Teat fondness for Widow-  en, and ft desire to possess ono. It is  always much more comfortable to have a  thoroughly trained pet ahout the house  (has one that one hae to domesticate  themselves.  A Widower's first owner 'has always  taken the edge off of it and taught it  little tricks, and it knows when to pipe  up/ and when to sit on his perch and  keep mum, all of which render it a most  desirable ornament for the parlor or  boudoir.  _____Y-j_k as the Widower has once  bees caught ln the matrimonial trap, it  ~h_e~been~argued~that*-it-showed-lack of  intdligenee In allowing itself to be  sawed'a second time.

From the tight little English island,  da an editorial in the London "Daily  Express," comes startling dietetic news.  It is nothing less than that in tho  |ery citadel of Beefeaterdom, in the very  lortex whence annually descend innuiner-  fblo roshers and countless coriiparrionin"  ggs, a doubt has arisen whether "copi-  fus breakfasts of fried eggs and broiled  (aeon" (as Thackeray puts it), followed  iy two or three solid rrrcnt meals every  lay, is quite tho proper thing. Our British friends, it appears, have at last be-  run to wonder whether emulation of  lohn Ridd, in the matter of morning  nenu, is conducive to agile minds and a  ight and springy step. They are uotu-  JJy beginning tu fear, 'tis said, that they  ���������at too often, too much, uml tho wrong  hing.  Tlio "Express" finds text for its sober  tttlo sermon on over-culin*j in the retort of the United States consul ut I_iv-  irpool, which states that tho Knglish ini-  Kirtationi. uf bacon - from America an-  lually amount in value to ten millions  if pounds sterling; nrrd that most of  ���������his pork is absorbed by the British  ircukfaster. "On the whole," says the  'Express," naively, "this is not a fact to  le exulted in." It goes even f urtlrer, and  iduiHs that there rs a "kernel of truth"  ii the foreign accusation against Eng-  ishmen "of living mainly upon chops and  iteaks, Brussels sprouts and turnip-  lops." "The eternal breakfast bacon,"  the "Express",, continues, "is one striking  instance of the shocking lack of variety  In food, whicli may, with some truth, be  tlleged against England." This dietetic  nonotony it attributes, first, to "want of  imagination" (to which wc unanimously  igree), and, second, to "railway rates''  (which statement seems obscure).  But however "shocking" may be the  lack ot variety in food at English tables,  (till more of a shocker is the redundance  In quantity of meat. Fifty millions of  iollaru' wortlh of breakfast bacon 1���������not  to mention eggs, fried or omelette. No  wonder the "lixpress" gravely asks "Do  ire eat too much meat?" and in conclu-  iion declares for answer that, "it is very  doubtful whether the English habit of  three meals is a sound ono either for  Health or business." For the English  business man, It says, not only partakes  copiously of bacon and eggs in the morn.  Ing, but refuses to forego a substantial  illowance of meat for lunch, and tackles  >. goodly chunk of Old England's roast  beef for dinner. Wc quite agree with  the '.'Express" that lie is thereby "handicapped.**  Among the carnivorous mammals, the  North American certainly rarrks low in  the list in comparison with his voracious  British brother, especially since we, in  this country, have been assailed and  taken prisoner by the innumerable arm****  of breakfast cereals; while they, in Britain, are but just now fronting the attack.  Apropos of cerenl foods, we note that  another English paper, the "Daily Mail,"  speaks of the "many and wonderful"  varieties of cereal foods of late introduced by "divers advertisement-, somewhat to the bewilderment of the public;"  and that it also announces, in an editorial, its plans for a series of practical  articles by an "athlete and brainwork-  er" on the "bewildering" new comestibles. "Tluut the public may be guided in  its choice by compeitent authority," says  Uie "Mail" with great solemnity, "Mr.  Eustace Miles has undertaken an heroic  experiment." "An heroic experiment I"  We sincerely trust that Eustace will survive the fourteen "new foods" which he  proposes to test, one each day, during a  fortnight. '  But surely 'tis a long, long step for  the British citizen from greasy fried  eggs and greasier fried pork, to a light  cereal breakfast. Perhaps, if he get  through this* successfully, he and all of  us may later learn to listen heedful ly to  bhe wise words of the revered Edward  Hooker Dewey, M.D., the original No  Breakfast Plan man ��������� a person who  strenuously contends that only he who  omits the morning meal has really mastered "the true science of living."

"On the flrst night of "The- ���������Cavalier' I  made a slip, which, fortunately, I recovered from by the rapidity of my sub-  lequent actions.

A telephone church service, whereby  hundreds of people can listen to the services while at their own home-, has re-  jently 'been instituted in an Indiana  town.

On t'he cross-examination the defendant's  counsel, Major Conrad, questioned him as  to his personal relations with Campbell.  "I prefer not to go into that matter," he  said. "I regret, Mr. Lea, that I am instructed to insist," -said the major. Then  the Lynchburg lawyer answered the  question as follows: "My relations with  Judge Campbell have been rather peculiar. Some ten or twelve years ago, during the time of my service as commonwealth's attorney, I was forced to shoot  and kill his father. I was promptly arrested, promptly tried and promptly nc-  quitt-dby a judge and jury_ whose integrity has' never been called into question.  For months afterward Judge Campbell  and I did, riot speak. Finally Judge  Campbell came to me, held out his hand,  and said he didn't blame me for what I  had done and that he wished to be  friends. I was placed in an embarrassing position, but, of course, I "shook  hands -with him, and since that time we  have been friendly in a way. There was  never any intimacy between us."  Anecdotal.

And to. each of these  announcements the physician exclaimed,  chuckling delightedly: "Excellent!"  "Charming!" "Splendid!" .
