Just  when the powers arc ripest the thinker,  thc   genius,   the   empire   builder   must  drop   his   plans   and   retire   from   the  stage of life.    Shall we woirdcr, then,  that from oi old wise men should have  asked Job's great question, "If 1111111  -die,   shall   he   live   again ?.',*   And   that  * jrcat pagan thinkers sought by natural  proofs to construct a doctrine of immortality ?    The  strongest    of these,  perhaps,  was  the historical  one���������that  irawn from un'rvers-al belief. The Egyptians, in the fabled bird the phoenix,  rising  irom   its   own  ashes;  the  Homeric  poems,   with   Asheron   arid  the  realm of shades; the Hindu doctrine ol  .netempsyc!5'jsis.    the ... transmigration  oi souls,  and  the hymns of the Rig-  Veda,   the   next   oldest  book  to   tire  Bible in  the  world,  all teach  an  ex-  _*.tence'.bcyon.i   the .grave.    And  arc  not  such   universal   beliefs   reflections  of eternal truths ?    And do they not  point to objective realities, just as the  eye prophesies things to be seen  and  the  bird's  wing  points to  a medium  nted for flight ? Hence wrote Victor,  .Hugo :���������"My   thirst  for  the    infinite  prox'cs that my being is infinite.Winter is  on  my silvered  head,  but eternal spring is in my heart."  The philosophical argument, based  upon the indestructibility of any simple entity, has also been resorted to.  On this ground Plato held thai "tire  soul was imperishable and immortal."  \nd Kant, the intellectual giant of  -modern times, deduced the same result from the voice of conscience.which  lie called the "Practical Reason." The  sthical argument, drawn from thc incompleteness and inequality and in-  iustice of this stage 01 being, * has  -also been adduced.  "And even science is not without its  proof.    For  Professor.   Tait. ' in    his  T*rcatise on-the    Unseen    Universe,"  shows   that  the  modern   discovery  of  '���������he  conservation    of    force���������that    no  particle  of  force  amid  all  changes  is  ���������:\er lost���������indicates thc indissoluble 11a-  -��������� ture of the soul.   So the indestructibility  of   matter   and   the     mystery    of  - -deep, "twin sLtcr of death," bring fur  **'��������������������������� ther corroborative proofs.  Such  are  the  reasonings  by  which  '-���������r-j-ien in all ages have sought to frame  ---������  theory   of   immortality   with   which  * to break the lance of the grim tyrant.  -'death.   Addison has thus strongly and  -" beautifully voiced this sentiment :���������  "It must'be so; Plato, thou    reasonest  well;  .���������Else whence  this pleasing hope,  this  fond desire,  "This longing after immortality ?  Or whence this secret dread and inward horror  .Of falling into naught?   Why shrinks  -the soul  - Back on herself and startles at destruc  tion ?       -  Tis the  divinity that stirs  within  us;  Tis  heaven   itself  that  points  out  an  hereaiter  find intimates* eternity to man.  aot without a divine inspiration In*.  the blessed Easteri.de been fixed by  thc Church at the season when thc  earth shakes off her winter's sleep;  when the birds come back and the  flowers begin to bloom; when every  seed that falls into the ground and  dies, and rises again with a new body,  is a witness to us of the resurrection  of Christ, and a witness to us that  some day life shall conquer death, light  conquer darkness and joy conquer  grief in that rcal'n of immortal being  where "there shall be no more death,  neither sorrow, nor crying, neither  shall there be any more phrn; for the  former things are passed away" (Rev.  xxi., 4),  Fortified, then, with this assurint*  Easter faith, let rrs. when our summons comes to quit these mortal  shores, make response with the tranquil mind of the Christian poet, Tennyson :���������  Holland and the Achinese.

Vet what are theories.speculations and  philosophies when confronted with the  remorseless logic of facts ? So. with  all their arguments, a tone of inconsolable lament and subdued despair  characterizes the writings of the  ���������ncicnts. "Happier never to have been  born," sings Sophocles, "than so soon  io pass tbrouch the hapless gates oi  --3iades.'-!������*^nd-H=.ecke!'**S-^-Sleep^QLlhc-  Boul," Huxley's "Engless Sleep" and  Hume's "Leap Into the Dark" show  the same doubt and scepticism among  modern secular philosophers.  And this, then, is the uniqueness  mnd the glory of thc Easter message.  "It meets fact with fact. It proclaims  with a trumpet that rends the universal air :���������"Christ has risen I Thc  Son of God **ns burst the bars of the  Rrave ! The king of terrors is discrowned ! Jesa; hath abolished death  ���������nd brought life and immortality to  Kght !" This all men feel to be the  .most blessed and significant fact of  fcistory. It is the .��������� cornerstone of  Christianity. Well may Rcnan admit  dat this Easter message has revolutionized thc world. Naturally and  lightfully, thinking men everywhere  rose up and questioned its credibility.  "But Christ would have risen in vain  "fcad not the resurrection been satisfactorily attested. And so the Church  formulated thc evidence, and little hy  little the world came to accept the  Easter miracle as an indisputable historical fact. And then the nightmare  ol ages lifted. The Sun of tminor-  lality rose t<*> thc zenith. A great in-  ipiration uplifted humanity. Thc floodgates of history were reversed. Rclir*;-  4on was transfused with hope and  ���������pladness. Literature took on ������������������sunnier  moods. Art bloomed with lovelier  _>rms. Cemeteries lost their horror  and became peaceful couches where  lhe loved pilgrims slept the "sleep  beautiful." to be wakened by'the joyful trump of endless life. The race  had undergone a new creation.  The resurrection of Jesus is thus a  idemonstratron of immortality. And of  ������ur persona! immortality. For, as He  was made man for us. so wc triumph  aver death in Him, our representative.  ,-Vnd so is it a demonstration of our  personal resurrection. Immortality  nnd Resurrection���������were ever such  twin  truths   heralded  as   these ?  And  ���������From the Shepherd's Notebook.  The feet of every member of thc  flock should be trimmed before sent to  pasture.  The best breed of sheep is the one  that suits both taste and requirements.  Liking induces interest; interest  brings enthusiasm, and enthusiasm  pays in sheep-raising.  The shepherd that treats his sheep  like friends is the most successful in  their care.  A ram must be a typical specimen of  the breed he represents in order to secure results expected.  Pure air and sunlight have a favorable effect in the breeding of ewes.  Their quarters should be kept dry.  Feeding a lot of rich grain the first  few days before weaning is a common mistake, and causes a good deal  of trouble, which often occurs both  to the ewe and the lamb.  If the ewe is weak at lambing time,  oatmeal is one of the best and most  strengthening foods. It is nourishing,  increases the milk flow, and prevents  bowel trouble in the offspring.  The special twine made for tying  wool should always be used, as unsuitable material is liable to interfere  with certain parts of thc machinery  used in the separation of the wool.  A lamb that is plump and fat without undue forcing with heating foods  makes the best growth.���������American  Cultivator.  Killing Insect Pests.  In the destruction of insect pests the  remedies are designed to act in one or  two ways. Tn one way the poison is  taken into thc digestive tract of the insect, and causes death. This is done by  simply coating the plant..* with some  poisonous substance (such as Paris  green), which is taken by the insect  with the food. By the other method  the food is not poisoned, as the material (such as kerosene emulsion) is  applied directly to the insect, and  ���������causes death cither by penetrating the  body directly or by closing the breathing pores. Many insects cannot be poisoned, as they feed upon the juices ot  plants (by sucking), and do not cat the  external covering, birt many of them  have soft bodies, so that they succumb  to treatment it thc poison comes in  contact with their bodies���������kerosene  emulsion usually proving fatal to them.  All of the apliides,  or lice,    feed    by  The Sultan of Achin, Tooankoo  Mohammed Daood, has surrendered to  the Dutch, an event which is confidently expected to close one oi the most  extraordinary chapters in thc colonial  history of the world. Achin is a  Moslem State in the northern portion  oi Sumatra which for some thirty  years has been a theatre of sanguinary war. Holland in all that period  has been trying desperately to overcome the Achinese. The Sultan  just, conquered has led his people in  battle for twenty years past, his spi.'it  being broken at last, it is said, by the  recent capture of his favorite wife.  His country has had a glorious history, according to Thc St. James'  Gazette (Loudon) :���������  "Achin has    lived  in  history    as a  powerful kingdom,  with  an  Imperialism   of its own    and a King    whose  every word  was law  in  many  islands  outside    Achin.      Klizabeth   sent   her  greetings  to  thc  King of Achin,  and  envoys   with   confidential   communications, and her successor was on such  gracious   terms   with     the   King  that  lie sent to Achin    two  brass cannon,  whicli -.land to ibis day at the gate pi  the palace in thc island capital.      So  strong   had   the   island   kingdom   become, indeed, that within a  few years  of its emerging from the position of a  vassal   State   it   broke   the power   of  Malacca in ten expeditions, and fitted  out five hundred ships, carrying sixty  thousand men.     It must have been one  of the world's wonders, this Achinese  navy ;    quite a hundred    of its ships  were bigger than anything Europe had  ever seen before.     So the island State  went on its way, swallowing up other  States, mining gold and coining money,  and encouraging wild extravagance in  its ir  narch, one of whom had a thousand elephants of state.      No country  in thc east, save Japan, was so rich in  its output of gold as Achin, and it is  not   astonishing,    perhaps,    that    the  Achinese    begat    a pride    of  empire  worthy  of an  Imperial  race.      Pride  gocth  before  a  fall,  and    the  fall  of  Achin has been complete.      The days  of its power have gone forever. Time  was    when    England    was    interested  enough in    this little State    to make  treaties for its protection, and so late  as  1824 England and  Holland agreed  upon a treaty maintaining    the  independence of the kingdom, which, commercially, was in close touch with this  country.     It was to thc Port of Achin  that the merchants of London directed  their energies when they were seeking  trade in India, and for generations the  little kingdom was on friendly    terms  with  England,  who found her friendship useful."  The British withdrew their protection from Achin in 1873, "which may  well make every Englishman blush for  his country, for in the desire of our  Government to settle all outstanding  difficulties with Holland in the Malay  archipelago and peninsula, the Kingdom of Achin was shamelessly and  cruelly abandoned." In 1874 war between the Dutch and Achinese began.  An insight into the nature of the  Sultan's sway is afforded by a correspondent of The London Times, who  writes:���������  "Upon the whole, our greater knowledge of Achinese Government and social institutions obtained since the  Dutch conquest of that strange and  antique empire, whose dominion formerly extended over a large part of  Sumatra and many adjacent islands,  has enabled^ us to correct some of the  prevalent misconceptions regarding the  real power and prerogatives of the  Sultan of Achin. The Dutch themselves "have had to admit that ther  were misled when they acted upon the  belief that in thc Sultan centered all  authority and power ; that he was, in  fact, an absolute monarch, and that  to seize him was to put an end to all  active resistance. They have found  out since, to their cost, that in Achin  the real ruling power lies with tlie  classes, the great nobles, and the high  priests,   who   together    form     a   very  The Midland Earthquake.  On March 24 the Counties of Derby,  Yorks, Stafford, Cheshire, Notts and  Leicester were all visited by an  undoubted earthquake, the main feature  of which consisted of two successive  shocks, each short in its duration, and  the one closely following on the other.  The London Daily Mail comments  thereon as follows :���������  Happily, there is no reason for any  seripus  alarm.      Our    knowledge    of  earthquakes and their causes has advanced to such a stage ihat what has  taken place in the-Midlands can be determined wilh almost absolute certainty.      The most formidable feature of  earth-dislurbances���������-lire volcano���������is not  likely to appear  in  England, and,  indeed, it is rare for any relationship to  exist between an earthquake    and    a  volcanic cruplioh.   The ordinary earthquake consists of more or less   clastic  vibrations of the earth'**-surface, generally due  to sudden yicldings in  lite  crust   of  the  carl.li,   and  when  it  occurs on a scale of some magnitude it  is usually accompanied by two shocks  ���������the first caused by welKmarkcd surface  waves, which  roll  outward  from  the centre of their origin and then return to their starling poinl to combine  with other waves and produce the second shock.   This is really quite a commonplace affair.   It is goiirg on all over  the world, and a considerable area of  thc earth is shaken,    on tho average,  every half-hour.   Compared with many  other countries, England is almost immune from earthquakes.   Our last visitation of any importance was the Severn basin earthquake of 1896.   In Japan,  on the other hand, the average number  of earthquakes exceeds a thousand a  year.      And  the  present  disturbance,  alarming though it naturally is to those  who experienced it, may after all be a  blessing in disguise;   for as Professor  Milne, the great seismologist, informs  us to-day, _ the    Midland    earthquake  probably arises from a movement along  the  "fault"  of  some  great  geological  formation. Conseqcntly it may not only  add to  our knowledge    of the    solid  structure of  thc  locality  affected,  but  even reveal sources of mineral wealth  hitherto  unknown and till now    unattainable.

Criminals, like other people, have  their weaknesses and temptations. Up  to a certain point the burglary planned by John Henson on "Colonra," the  premises of Mr. Ernest Dimand, at  Chiswick, was a distinct success, says  a London newspaper. He had collected booty to the value of ������40, and  the household was still asleep. Then,  in an evil moment, Henson saw a full  bottle of rum. -He emptied it, and  went to sleep on the hall floor. There  Mr. Dimand found him, wearing two  coats.  "How very foolish of you," said the  west London Magistrate to Henson,  whom he committed for trial. "You  might have gone off cjurte easily with  all those beautiful things"���������indicating  Mr. Dimand's silver, which was displayed attractively in court.

The interesting proposal for a Forth  and Clyde ship canal, which Mr. Caldwell has brought before the British  House of Commons several times during the past few weeks, is a comparatively old story, though it is not unlikely to be revived one of these days  in an unexpected manner. Such  shrewd, far-seeing Scotsmen as Professor Patrick Gcddcs are firmly convinced that the work must be undertaken before long, and that when it has  been completed Scotland will' really be  the hub of the universe. The country  to be canalized is the narrowest part  of Great Britain. Indeed, a little-used  canal already exists, but it is a very  small affair. About fourteen vcars ago  the ship canal idea was infiuentially  taken up and a survey was made. The  length of the canal would be slightly  over twenty-six miles, and the cost wan  estimated at ������7,000,000.

Asparagus Out of Doors.  This is one of thc choicest and most  desirable of all thc vegetables, and one  of thc simplest to grow. A bed once  established will, with proper care, last  for fifteen, or twenty years without rescuing.  Asparagus is one of thc best and  most healthful products of thc garden;  one of the first of thc many fruits and  vegetables that wc can enjoy in thc  early spring. With the average season it is ready for table use in this  section about the middle of April, and  continues to produce edible stalks until July first. We can therefore hope  to have this luscious, health-imparting  vegetable every day for ten weeks. We  have for several years past enjoyed  this excellent dish for this length of  time, and very often use it at two of  the meals each day. If for want of  land we were restricted to the growing of one vegetable, it would be asparagus. No garden plot can be considered well provided unless a good  portion of it is planted with it.  I am often asked, "How many plants  do we need for our family?" This is a  hard question to answer intelligently  without first knowing something about  the existing conditions. In a general  way, however, and with a thorough  knowledge of the requirements of my  own family in this respect, I feel pretty safe in advising 250 plants for a  family of five persons, and 500 plants  for a family of 10. Boys and girls  from seven to twelve years of age will  eat as much of it as adults, and they  ought to have all they want of it,  too. It is good for all. The plants arc  inexpensive, easily cultivated, and a  bed once established will last for many  years.  These remarks are, of course, intended especially for the amateur gardener. When the conditions are reasonably favorable, there is no single  vegetable that from year to year will  be a source of more profit to the commercial market gardener than an acre  or more of asparagus. Here is a product of thc garden always in demand.  The plants are comparatively cheap,  requiring no special skill to plant and  cultivate, an easy and pleasant crop to  prepare for market, and, above * all,  one that brings the first income from  the garden in the early spring.  The writer has grown asparagus  successfully on a variety of soils. Almost any land,will do,'providing it is  well drained, naturally or ��������� otherwise,  and the land is loose and mellow. No  one should try to grow this vegetable*  on hard ground or land liable to bake.  The top soil should hai. e a body of at  least 10 or 12 inches���������if more, so much  the better. ��������� The ground should have  been in, cultivation a year or more;  under no circumstances , should you  plant in new-plowed sod ground. Use  stable manure or other fertilizers to  enrich the soil. It is also beneficial  to* use stable manure directly over the  rows during the winter months, as a  protection to the roots, on the same  principle as covering_ the strawberry,  except that the covering for asparagus  need not be so heavy. It would be  better to have the manure more thoroughly rotted.  After your trenches have been made  with the team and plow, if you are  planting largely, or by the spade for  the small garden bed, you should apply in the bottom of these trenches a  good dressing of well-rotttd stable manure, or in its stead wood ashes or  some complete fertilizer. This can be  readily and easily incorporated with  the soil in thc bottom of the trench  directly before the plants arc set. Tlie  ground should be thoroughly prepared,  and the soil finely pulverized, freed  from all stones, **-iots or rubbish. Perhaps in the planting of no other fruit  oi* vegetable is it of such supreme importance that thc land should be worked and brought into the best possible  _c_qndjtion_as_in_tlrc_establishing of the  asparagus bed, be it !arge"_or "sinall.-  The great cost and labor is in the  beginning, and it must be well doite  for the best results.  Plant for garden culture three feet  apart between thc rows, and one foot  apart in thc row; for field culture, set  the plants four feet apart between the  rows and 18 inches apart in the rows.  Irr either case be sure to set them, if  possible, one foot below the surface  of thc ground. Where the virgin soil  is shallow, of course, this cannot be  done, but be sure always to plant as  deep as possible and never work into  thc subsoil more than two or three  inrhes. Spread ihe roots out, covering them not more llran three inches  deep every ten days or so after, or  as thc leader shows above the soil, fill  in again, and use this method of covering until the leader is above the  surface of the ground. I have observed many failures of plants to grow,  that havt been wrongfully charged to  the inferiority nf the plants, when they  were caused by thc planting in these  deep trenches and filling in over the  plants, level with the surface ground  at lire time of planting, the plants decaying in thc ground for want'of air.  bcc.iuse of thr. deep eoveriirg; then  let it be remembered Ihat while it is  of the first importance to get the'  roots deep in the ground, this should  be done in the manner described.  Thc plants may be set in the spring  during Alarch, April and May, the  earlier the better after the ground is  fit to work to get into proper condition. As a matter of fact. May is. in  c?rly climates, too late. Wc must always study the "condition of the pla*it.  When too far advanced, it is more or  less risky to transplant it. Plant while  the stock is dormant, and all will b?  well if other things are equal.���������T. J.  Dwyer, Cornwall, N.Y., in Country  Gentleman.  Anecdotal.

When she got upstairs again Norma  found Aslley, who was bettrr than he  had been on the previous night nnd for  tho lime completely conscious, in a state  -of evident anxiety. No sooner had Martin left the rooni'than he asked quickly:  '���������What did Mrs. Wharles want with  jou!"  "She  came  to  explain   that her husband  had  heen  called away  suddenly,"  said Norrrra in a sooiurng tone.   "Didn't  you notice that you hnd a change of doe-  torst"  i     "Oh yes," said Astley, still frowning.  Then, after a short pause, he added:    I  wonder what Wharlcs * is up''to!   "And  why his wife should have 'thought it ne-  -cessary  to   call!     They're a  detestable,  pair, greedy and I fancy unscrupulous,  -and I know* they're ostentatious and ex-  "  travngant-   Don't have any more to do  "^--with'^either-'of-them than you can help,  ��������� Norma; mind thnt."        *'    ���������      "-,*���������   >.  "Yes. dear.   Why do you have him if  you dislike hiin so much?"_.  "Because, unluckily, he's the only  .medical man about here .who knows any-  ' thing about his profession. I dare say,"  ho added, after a moment's thought, "I  -am influenced by the'fact that his wife  was a sister of mine and that her influ-  ' -ence was not for good. There was .only  one decent member of the family,,the  third sister, a widow,* a. Mrs. Finch. All  ���������tlie rest, mother, T_������ tie. Mrs. 'Wliarles,  ���������were untrustworthy, -jvory one."  "What is the third sister like!" asked  ("Norma, with a sudden- suspicion. "Is  ahe a twin sister of the one you married?"  "Oh, no. She was'taller, and not at  ������11 like her. Lottie was the shortest.  lsut' the prettiest, and took after the  .mother, who must have been a very lo\e-  3y woman ii her day."  "Oh!" s' id Norma, with a. spaam^o!  disappointment. For the idea had shot  into her mind that, if the sisters had  been twins, Mrs. Wharles might have  conceived the plan, of getting the living  one to pass for her dead sister.  ���������  "Don't let us talk about them," said  lAstley. "Let us talk about ourselves  each other."  Norma smiled a rather pitiful smile, as  ������he accepted his mute invitation to take  -Iris hand and sit beside him.  "I'm afraid I must forbid your talking  mt all,"  said she, gently.    "You have   cha |.tered_too_imieh already."      _  "Well then, I'll give yoii a rest, on "one  condition: come nearer and tell me, just  whisper���������whether you'll be satisfied with  a marriage which is only a business partnership, whether you won't let a touch  ���������of sentiment come int Coinc, come,  haven't you any answer!

She wanted to be business-like,'hard, matter-of-fact, forbidding  And then he looked up, and her heart  gave a great leap, and without anobher  ���������word she leaned down impulsively and  pressed a loving, lingering kiss on his  forehead.  He took it quite quietly, without a  eound, but after that he seemed satisfied  to obey her injunction to be still and  .submissive, and lay back with her hand  ���������clasped in his, bteathing regularly, and  looking at her with a sort of half smile  hovering about his mouth.  As for her, she felt completely brokenhearted. How should she tell him thc  truth! How should she be able to go  -away and leave him when ho learned  that the tie between them was non-existent, that he was bound to thc woman  who had so infamously deceived him?  For Norma had tho strongest suspicions that the Whnrlcscs, husband and  wife, would succeed in trumping up such  an answer to the grave charges Astley  bad brought against Lottie that it  .would indeed, as they had predicted, be  impossible for him to get free.  After a time, to Norma's great dis-  irawL. Astley began    to    cro.w roetless  me���������it will ho easy enough���������though you  don't know it. No, you don't know it!  You shall love me, and console me for  what the other one did; and you shall  he happy yourself, yes, I promise you  that. Normal Little wild bird, little  ���������-ricked Norma. Normal Norma! Norma!   Hark, what's that?   Who's thatt"  To Norma's great distress his tone had  suddenly changed, and he had sprung up  in bed. She rose to her feet, soothing  him, begging him to lie quietly. He paid  no heed to her words, bub remained in a  listening attitude, staring at the big  screen which, hy Dr. Wlrarles's orders,  had been put round thc door to keep out  some of the draughts for -which the old  houso was famous.  "Who's thatt . Who's that, I sayt  Come in, come in, can't you?" he repeated in a loud, harsh voice, with his eyes  staring vacantly.  In vain Norma tried to calm him.  "There's no one there, no one," urged  she. **-.  Yet still, in a. louder voice thnn hc-We,  ho shouted: "Come in, come in, I saj|','  "Hush, hush, do lie clown, you raustVa  down," cried Norma imperiously. "Listen," she said, distinctly in his caT, as  she wrestled with him, and tried to;get  him to Iio back upon his pillow, "I'll go  and see that there is no one there, if  you'll only lie down, if you'll only ba  still, and quiet and calm."  As she repeated these words emphatically in his car, the sick man seemed to  take in part, at least, of tbe sense of her  words, and rs she made a movement as  if to go to the door, he at last, allowed  her to settle him again among his pillows, as she ,kept on-repeating: "You  sliall see; I'll show you there's nobody,  there."        -    '     *        '    , " '  V * I  With her'eyes upon-the bed', and full  of ��������� the idea of satisfying his feverish  fancy, she walked to the screen and  looked round it.  '  She did not cry out: she did not faint,  .or full, or'.stagger: hut"the. sight which  .met her eyes-froze her blood and sent a  "deadly sickness to her heart.  There, behind the screen, in the 'very  sick-room, trembling, shamefaced,' silent,  but doggedly, sullenly asserting her  earthly presence, lier reality, was the woman whom Norma had seen in the hotel  office at Oxford, the woman who had followed Astley and herself through the  streets.  .CHAPTER XI. -  Scarcely had Norma's startled eyes  rested a moment upon the woman behind  the screen, when Astley called to her.  "Norma, Norma? come here, I want  you!"  As she hesitated, not knowing what to  do, divided between her fear that he  would guess something, and her even  stronger fear that the dreaded visitor  would force her way in, Norma was recalled to decision and to action by a sudden movement forward on the part of  the woman.  The door hy which she had entered  was still open behind her. Norma, with  unexpected strength and dexterity,  threw herself upon' the intruder, and  forced her back into thc wide corridor  outside. At the same time, she had the  presence of mind to call out, in a ringing, cheerful voice, to Astley:  "Wait one moment I I'll he back in a  Btomentl"  It was a risk to leave him; hut it must  -be-done���������Shutting_thc_door_quickly_be-_  hind her, Norma faced the intruder,  who waa dressed very quietly in dark  clothes, and whose face was shrouded in  a thick veil of brown gauze which formed  an admirable disguise.  "Let mo pas3! Let me go in!" cried  the visitor, not loudly, irrdced with some  sign of nervousness on her part, but doggedly too.  But Norma seemed to have become  suddenly endowed with -a, strength of  iron sinews and iron nerves.  "Who are yout" she asked, in a hissing whi.per, "and what do you want!"  The visitor panted as she drew back,  forced away irom the door-handle by  the energetic action of the other womaa.  "You know who I am," she answered  at once, "and I want to see my husband."  For one moment Norma was too  much overwhelmed, prepared a3 she was  for this answer, to frame a word in reply. Recovering herself, however, she  gasped out:  ���������   "How do I know itt   I thought���������he  thought���������his first wife was dead?"  The woman drew herself up, recovering herself in her turn.  "Let me go into the room," said she.  "You will want, no further proof when  he sees me.','  And again she mado a plunge at the  door. Norma put up her hand imploringly.  "Not now, not yet," she entreated.  "He's ill; don't you see what the shock  would bet Have yon no heart, no regard  for himt"  "Of course I have. And that's why  I've come; I came directly I heard he  was ill. Lot mc go in, I say. I hare the  rigiit."  Norma bent forward, with flashing  eyes that pierced under the veil to the  visitor's features.  "You have the right!" she echoed in a  voice tremulous with passion. "You who  deserted him, chose to be dead to avoid  him. No. You have no more right than  the dead, and you shall not force your  way in, to disturb him, perhaps to kill  him, if I have to rouse the house to keep  you away!"  Her energy and passion got the better  of the determination of tho other woman.   Tire visitor drew back a little.  "Call the servants up if you like," said  she in a scoffing tone. "And undo all  that I've been so careful about. For your  sake I came quietly in by the garden  dc-or, with this veil on that none of them  might recognize me even if thcy.inet me.  For your sake I've taken every precaution. I don't want to make a disturbance: I don't want to make things unpleasant for you, Brit I've come all the  way from Leamington to sec him, nnd it's  hard to be dciried orre look."  Norma drew her breath sharply  through her teeth. She felt that sho was  not in an unassailable position herself,  and therefore she could not take a high  hand witli this other woman. .  "If I promiso that you shall see him,"  she said in a gentler voice, "will vou promise mo in return that youWon t try to  make yourself known to him until���������until he's well againt Of courso he must  know tho truth then: but I want to keep  it from him whilo he's ill and weak."  Her words, her pleading, humble tone,  evidently surprised the other, who hesitated for n reply.  Then the voice of Astley was heard  again, calling for Norma, sleepily, faintly.  Norma pointed to the door of her own  bedroom.  "Will you go in there," she said, "and  wait for met I must get someone to  stay with him, and then I'll corae to  yon."  The visitor obeyed without n word;  and Norma, much relieved to find that  she had found the right way to treat  her, re-entered the sick-room and rang  the bell for Martin. Astley was falling  into a doze; he just opened his eyes  sleepily on her entrance, and closed them  again at once with a half smile.  When the housemaid appeared to take  her place, Norma slipped out of the room  quietly, and went to her own bedroom,  where the visitor, having taken off her  veil, revealed an extremely pretty face,  somewhat worn and thin indeed, and  with evident anxiety in the eyes, but attractive enough to excuse the infatuation Aslley had once had for her.  "Well," she said at once,-"am I to see  him now!"  Norma clasped and unclasped her  hands nervously.  "You shall see him if you insist," she  said.   "But I hope you won't insist.   I  hops you will wait.    He's not in any  danger, you know.    Ask Dr. Wharlcs:  he will tell you he's not.   There's really  no more reason why you should insist  upon  forcing  yourself   upon  him  now  than there was at Oxford."  The woman started.  "Then you saw me at Oxford!"  "Yes.   Why didn't you. make yourself  known to him then?    You would havo  Bavcd both him and mc a great deal  if  you had."  "But you were married to him already,  weren't yout   They said you were." .  '"* Norma hesitated. -'   .  "I'm sure," went on * the ��������� visitor, "I  Uon't want to bring any more annoyance  npon you or him cither than I can help.  I know I did wrong in letting him think  I was dead. '.But I was frightened; we  hadn't got on well together, and I  thought that .was the best way out of  it. Indeed, I' 'never hnd ' any idea of  coming into his way again. It was only  when we got very badly off, my mother,  and'sister and I���������that I heard'he was at  Oxford, and thought of going there nnd  'asking him to forgive my ^deceit and' to  help us. Well, then I. heard you ask for  him, and I mado enquiries, and found  you had married hhn; and there Twas  for days, watching him and, debating  whether I should speak to him or not.  And then he w'ent away. And the next  thing I heard was that he was Sir Aslley  Darwen wilh ever SO much money, and  there were we with hardly any. So what  could I do but come?"  Norma was revolted*  ' "It wasn't his illness that brought you  thent" she said. "Only the want of  moncyt"  The visitor looked down.,  . "Didn't you ever care for himt" pursued Norma, aghast.  "Not as much as you do," answered  the other frankly. "We were all poor,  you"know, and bad to marry. 'Fanny,  who married Dr. Wharles, was the only  'one of us who made a love match. Em-  meline married, as I did, because she'had  to."  "Emmeline��������� that's Mrs. Finch!"  "Yes."  "Astley says she is a nice'woman, a  good woman."    _        ~  The visitor moved petulantly.  "She's no better than I am," she retorted sullenly.   Then after a moment's  i.  riknea m\a added in on aggrieved tone:  -J-Stfls easy-to.be pwfcetly_good_whc_n ypu  lawe no"cares, when you've always.got'  plenty of money and everything you  want. This deceit that I've practised  upon him is the only thing I've ever had  to reproach myself with, whatever any-*  body may say."  And she looked defiantly into Norma's  face in the candlelight.   ���������  Norma believed her. There was rather  an attractive appearance of sincerity  about her visitor, which impressed her  in spile of herself. The very fact that  she did not make any hypocritical pretense of devotion to Astley seemed to  Norma to be in her favor.  A pang of jealousy shot through her  heart. This woman had been Astley's  choice; he had loved her passionately;  the rumors of her misconduct had caused  him the most cruel tortures. If���������nay���������  when Lottie should prove that these  stories were untrue, would she not easily, with her pretty face, lisping, sweet  voice, and unaffected manners, be able  to regain the place which she had for  the time lost in his affections!  The hot tears sprang to Norma's eyes.  "Well," she said at last, hoarsely, "if  what you say ia true, if you have been  misjudged, as you say, so much the better for you when you are able to see Sir  Astley and explain yourself to him. Perhaps he will forgive you for your cruel  deception."  Lottie looked at her uneasily.  "And���������and what about you?" she said  in a low voice.  Norma bit her lip.  "It's rather late for you to ask that,"  she said bitterly. "If you had given a  moment's consideration lo anybody but  yourseli before you played this trick on  Sir Astley, you might have known that  he, young*, handsome, good-hearted as  he is, would wnnt to love and marry  someone else some day."  The other woman began to walk restlessly up and down tho long room.  "Well, well," she said at last, hurriedly, turning to Norma.nnd speaking with  great earnestness, "there's no harm dono  yet, is there! Nobody has seen ine here,  nobody who knows me. And Astley  doesn't know that I'm here. Why tell  him? Why tell anybody? I tell you I  only want help, a little help for us all.  I'm sorry Icame rrow, very sorry; but  remember, I didn't come until my brother-in-law told me you knew or guessed  that I was alive. Kerriernber that! Perhaps I never should have come but for  that."  Norma sat down, trembling.  "But," she said, in a hoarse whisper,  "your coming or not**eomirrg would make  no difference to the fact that you're his  wife, and I'm not."  Lottie started.  "Oh, don't put it like that," she said.  "Even I shouldn't put it like that. You  married him thinking he was free, nnd  ho thought tho same. So, if nobody  knows about my being alive���������"  "But he will know, he must know,"  said Norma quickly. "Don't you see  yourself that Dr. Wliarles and his wife  are dying to make the thing known!!'  Lottie .looked uneasy.  "Not hy my wish," she said quickly.  "They do too much: I wish they  wouldn't. Look here: I seo yon arcforrd  of Astley, and no doubt he's fond of you.  I don't want to come between you. I'm  not ill-natured really. I've forfeited nil  right to his affection by my wicked deceit, as you said. Let mo go away: help  me a little if you can: I'm poor, and  you're rich: you can spare something,  and you would, I know. Then I'll co  quietly away, and I won't ever trouble  you again.   There!"  Sho spoke earnestly, simply, sincerely.  Norma was touched.  "You shall have all the money I can  give,*, she said at once. "But as for  hushing up the fact of your existence,  it's absurd, you know. The people in  your neighborhood must know all about  it, and Dr. Wliarles and his wif������ are only  too anxious to spread the news about.  Lottie moved away impatiently. "No,  no," went on Norma with axeitetnent,  "we can't go on. It is I who must go  away: I'll tell you the truth: our married life has not begun: you have no  need to be jealous: you are Lady Darwen, and I am Norma Ba .cot."  Lottie reeled back, confounded.  "You'll���������you'll give him up!" cried she,  in amazement.  "I must. We can't begin life on a lie.  Th������ moment he is well enough to hear  the truth, I shall simply tell him, and  go away, and���������"  "But I���������I���������he'll never forgive mel"  stammered Lottie. "You'll just spoil  your own life without doing any good to  me!"  "I can't help that," said Norma, who  was wise enough to know how mad it  would be to expect this erratic woman  to keep any secrot for. long. "You and  he will settle your affaire between you. Of  course I shall be grateful to you if you  will go away as you have come, and say  nothing to anyone 1:11 I have left this  house. After that, y> j. must do what Sir  Astley chooses. -In -he meantime," she  went on, while Lottie paced up and  down, wringing her hands in evident distress, "I'll give you some money which  ���������will keep you comfortably until you can  arrange with Sir Aslley.

And I���������I -wouldn't take  money from you if only I' were not so  hard up. Look heie!". She put out a  little foot, and' showed a broken boot.  Norma, who had already noticed thc  pathetic shabbiness of her dress, drew her  breath sharply through her teeth, and  ran to her writing-table, where she unlocked her little desk.  '"Shall  I  write  it  out  lo   yout"  sho  asked.    "I'm going lo give you a check  for a hundred pounds."  'Lottie sobbed aloud.  When she had muttered some shamefaced thanks, she said:*  "Don't give me a check. I don't want  to use your name.",  "But I .have only a few pounds here.  Shall I,make it out to your sister, or  your mother, or���������"  "No, no, I should never get the money.  I���������I mean," said Lottie, hastily checking  herself, "I'd rather have the .money instead of a check."  "What shall I do then? I can write up  to my bank to-nigh I, but I can't get the  notes till the day after to-morrow. I  don't know these people yet, or I would  get it cashed here," said Norma, who was  m/Uier. shy and ignorant about money  matters, and afraid to excite remark in  the neighborhood.  "I'll wait, I'd rather waif till you get  it." r    '  "And I'll send it to Leamington?" said  Norma.  "No. Ill meet you in the orchard,  tho day after to-mo..ow, at dusk, just  after tea.

Trembling nnd amtatod, Norma went  back to Aslley, who had been dozing,  but was now awake and conscious. She  had some difficulty in quieting his curiosity as to her long absence, nnd he was  evidently displeased with her for it.  However, she flattered herself that she  succeeded pretty well with him, until  the following morning, when Dr. Wharled  came. Then, after answering the doctor's questions wilh marked coldness,  Astley caught the exchange of a significant look between Norma and hiin, and  thereupon promptly called her back ki  she was following Dr. Wharlcs out of the  room.  (To be Continued.)  A story which may or may not illustrate certain'peculiarities of what has  now and then been called the feminine mind is told by The Kansas .City  Journal on the authority of The Sedgwick Pantagraph, presumably one of  its not'very remote neighbors.'As the  tale runs, two young w,oj*nen,of Sedgwick hired a livery horse with which to  take a drive out into the country. 'Before the start was made the liveryman,  in answer to his patrons' inquiries as  to the temper and disposition of the  horse, assured them that he would be  as gentle as a lamb if they kept the  rein away from his tail, while there  might be trouble if tliey didn't. The  young women returned in Safety, and  when asked if thc horse had misbehaved one of them replied : "Oh, no. There  was one Kttle shower, but we had an  umbrella, and held it so that not a  drop touched the' horse's tail." "And  that," concludes The Pantagraph, "explains the ddzed look the liveryman  has been wearing for the past few  dayg." * ..*?

The British detachment held out until  its ammunition was exhausted and then  charged with the bayonet, but it was  ultimately overwhelmed by weight of  numbers.

Opinions of Russia's Course in Manchuria.  London, April 27.���������In a despatch  sere that Britain . and Japan have  strongly urged China to reject the demands of Russia in regard to Man-  :huria. Viscount* Hayashi, the Jap-  incse Minister here, received yesterday  j. .cablegram from the Government at  Tokio, duly confirming the reports of  the Russian demands regarding 'Man-  :huria. The Minister expressed the  opinion that they were entirely opposed to the policy ot the "open door,"  but he added that he,was not yet in a  position to say what action will be  taken by the ^interested powers.'  St. Petersburg, April 27.���������The officials of the Foreign Office here expressed to the correspondent of the'As-  sociatcd Press intense surprise at  the report that American public opinion was disturbed by the news regarding' Manchuria. They declared the  people of the United States were being misled by Japan, and said tliat the  improvements** which were in progress  in Manchuria certainly would benefit  International commerce. The Foreign  Office officials added that no new fundamental conditions were being imposed, claiming that what are now in progress are pourparlers concerning the  act of eyacuation itself and the organization of the Chinese Administration to  secure order.' The Chinese Administration, however, is not ready. Russia  desires an assurance that China will  maintain a sufficient police force to repress local disorders, which are continuous* throughout Manchuria, espec*.  ially in the mountains. The detachments of Russian troops remaining in  }Jiel country have no object  Dut the' maintenance of order  locally * until China is ab*e to  guarantee that order will be  maintained.

The Herald Supplement  THURSDAY, JULY 9,  1903.  CITY SOLONS  SOLILOQUISE  What Happened at Last Council  Meeting-���������River Improvement  ���������Electric Light and Waterworks.���������Minor Matters.  At last Friday's Council meeting the  Mayor was in the chair and Aids.  Hume, McLeod and Law were present  for the transaction of, civic business.  After   the   minutes  of  the   previous  ��������� meeting had been read and adopted  the City Clerk read the following.  . COMMUNICATIONS.  Chief Bain���������Reporting fire alarui  system as working satisfactorily.���������  Adopted.  P. Agren���������Asking for an extension  of time in contract for remodelling  City Hall.���������Granted imtil 20th July,  but no further.  * J. I. Woodrow���������Requesting use of  .public library building for meeting of  local branch of the Provincial Mining  Association.���������Granted subject to such  "regulations as council may impose.  Invitation to be present at Lord's  Day Alliance mass meeting was filed,  the date having passed   Mayor, Trail���������Invitation for Dominion Day and offering to pay travelling  expenses. " City Clerk to reply thanking for same and regretting, inability  of Councillors to attend.  RIVER  IMPROVEMENT.  W. A. Galliher, M.P., wrote'stating  that Columbia River Improvement  Bill would not "be* passed without  certain amendments, also regarding  river improvements. ' The letter  stated that the* dredge . had , been  ordered, when fixed, to be utilized at  Beaton and the best thing the Council  could do would be to write the  1 Department of Public Works requesting that H. M. Keefer, Dominion  engineer of New Westminster, make  an examination and report upon the  feasibility of dredging out the old  channel opposite the city.  The Mayor stated that he had  secured the consent of the local Liberal Association to endorse such  request and accordingly a resolution  setting forth the facts of the case was  passed on motion of Aid. McLeod and  Law, copy of which, together with  all correspondence, was ordered sent  to the Liberal Association and W. A.  Galliher.  FALLING BANK.  H. Edwards wrote requestingpro-  tection of river bank at end of Third  street by extending fence east to  opposite Presbyterian church, as the  vicinity was much visited on account  of scenic attractions; also asking that  holes on Third street be filled in.  After a remark from. the Mayor that  not scenic but utilitarian reasons  should govern action, both letters  were referred to the Boards of Works.  ELECTRIC   LIGHT.  ���������For- the-Fire,-" Water -and���������Light  .committee the Mayor reported that  rock work on the new flume would  be finishe _ by Wednesday, although  the crib could be started on Monday,  70 feet being ready. The rock work  was very slow owing to only small  charges being permissible through  danger of rock above heing displaced.  Very good work hod been done of a  permanent nature and it would be  impossible for the flume to go out  again. The lights would be running  again about Thursday or Friday.   *  WATER WORKS.*--- '  * He also'stated that the upper dam  had been repaired and was * now in  good'shape.   As  to  the  dams, there  had been some difficulty in stopping  leaks, but by sacking clay and putting  it over brushwood and filling in holes,  the work had been done satisfactorily.  Arrangements had been made to  secure water supply while tank was  being lined.  FIRE TRUCKS.  Aid. McLeod reported that the  delayed trucks had arrived and were  now ready to be set up.  INQUIRIES.  As to some work required by Mrs.  Smith and others, the City Clerk  reported there had been some delay  owing to Inspector Gordon having to  devote his whole time to the power  repairs. After some discussion the  matter was left in the Mayor's hands  to do the best possible.  IMPOUNDING STOCK.  Aid. Hume suggested that steps betaken to do away with the nuisance of  stock on the streets. Several citizens  residing on McKenzie avenue had tales  of woe as to being kept up all night by  wandering horses and cows. Aid.  McLeod thought if the why and  wherefore of proposed action were  known the owners of the offending  stock would be "ca canny" and corrafl  them for a day or two. The best  thing was to be -. like the Assyrian,  come down "like a wolf on the fold."  Accordingly power was given to the  Board of Works, when, necessary,  to hire a cowboy to round up offenders. After the usual monthly accounts  had been passed the City Clerk was  asked as to  "ASSESSMENT ROLL.  -���������He stated that-it had been com  pleted and notices would be sent out  forthwith. After some *. discussion it  was' decided to "have the Court of  Revision about August 21th, the roll  to be " officially "returned at next  Council meeting.  The Mayor stated that all accounts  re the extra work would be in by July  llth and he would call a meeting of  the Finance committee early ^the  following_week to consider ways and  means. They might also strike the  tax rate as it was unlikely the assessment would be much altered by the  Court of Revision. The Council then  adjourned.  MYSTIC BONDS.  L. O. L.  Great preparations have been made  by the members of the Orange Order  in New Westminster for the Provincial  Grand Lodge celebration in that city  on Monday next, the 21Stb anniversary of the Battle of th* Boyne.  There will be a grand procession at 1  o'clock, when, among others, ��������� Hon. R.  G. Tatlow, a prominent member of the  order, will address the assembled  brethren. This will he followed by an  intermediate lacrosse match for a silver cup presented by Hon Richard  McBride and a liaseball match Chilli-  whack v. New Westminster for the  Orangemen's trophy. There will be a  .long programme of athletic sports at  Quoen's-Psrk-ftnd,--in-the=eyening-F  gHinesJunder the direction of a citizens'  committee on Columbia street. The  celebration will terminate with a  grand hall in. the Exposition building  commencing at 9 p.m..  Arrangements have been made.for  the round trip from Revelstoke and  all Kooteuay points at single fare and  a large number of the brethren and  friends have signified their intention  of making the trip. Visitors will also  have a good opportunity of seeing the  salmon industry in full swing, which  in itself is a sufficient attraction.  CHURCH PARADE.  At a special meeting held on Saturday last it was decided by the L. O. L.  and True Blues to attend divine service on Sunday morning next at the  Presbyterian Church. Brethren will  parade at the lodge room ut 10:30a.m.  ANNUAL PICNIC.  The members   of  the Order and the  True Blues and   tlieir friends who are  unable to get away for the big celebration at New  Westminster on Monday  will hold a picnic the same afternoon  at the gun club grounds.     Sports and  pastimes will lie indulged in.  f. o. E.  A lodge of the Fraternal Order of  Eagles is about to be established in  this city.    More than sufficient names  have been obtained to secure a charter  and the same was applied for some  days ago.    It is expected   that Bro.  Von Rhein, of Esquiiualt, the head of  the Order  in   British  Columbia, will  visit this city some time next week to  institute the lodge.   Although only of  recent formation, the Fraternal Order  of Eagles has   a   very large membership and is particularly noticeable for  tbe close attention  paid to sick and  [distressed brethren.     A large number  j of business, ard professional men in  the city have signed  the application  fer a charter and   the older  lodges in  Revelstoke will have to watch well if  they  are   not   shortly   surpassed   in  influence   and   membership    by    the  latest additions to. fraternal" societies  here.  K. OF P.  ' A well attended -meeting of Gold  Range -Lodge was held last evening  when officers for the ensuing half  year were installed. Under the "Good  of the Order" a short impromptu  .programme was rendered and several  of the, newly installed officers made  short speeches dealing with, subjects  of interest to Pythians. It is expected  that a branch of the Rathbone Sisters  will be formed here shortly, thus  giving the ladies an opportunity to  forward the work of this progressive  Order.  s. o. E.  Tbe tegular meeting of the Sons of  England Benevolent Society will be  held on Tuesday evening next, when  brethren are requested to attend, as  business of importance will be transacted.  SPORTS   AND    PASTIMES.  THE NATIONAL GAME.  Referring  to   the  Dominion    Day  Kamloops   "Standard"'  the  Quite Cut Up.  The Kootenay Mail of Saturday last  shows a cut of' what it alleges is the  Fulton Cup. "Where on earth they  ever dug up such, an atrocity is a question. The cut is no more like the  Fulton Cup than day is like, night.  Possibly some of the Revelstokers,  making merry over the pros ect of  eventually winning the cup, have mistaken some old beer mug that they  have been imbibing from for the  genuine  article.���������Kamloops Sentinel.  The Herald begs to inform the  Kamloops paper that the editor of the  Mail was not present when the cup  referred to appeared in the last issue  of our esteemed. The cut represents  the mug that the editor of > he Mail  has with him on a still hunt through  _tjie *'.Lardeau jforlGritjyoters, and no  doubtTiiTT*he . mug < that Mr. Haggen  used on Sunday at Comaplix to round  up the faithful in that Burg. After  the meeting Mr. Haggen preached  from the text: "To the Grit grafters  belong the spoils, or a Province we  wiUgive you."  Tlie Herald has received a copy of  "The Royal Tour in Canada, 1001,"  being the official account of the visit  of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall  to the Dominion in that year- It is a  handsome volume of nearly 400 pages  and contains many interesting photographs. -The volume it a valuable  souvenir of the visit of the present  Prince of Wales.  match  said  "Kamloops did not show at all to  advantage, want of combination and  playing too much on the man instead  of the ball being the principal causes,"  which accounts for slight damages to  the limbs and optics of the winning  team.  On Dominion Day at Vancouver the  Terminal City had everything its  own way. It gave Victoria the worst  beating at lacrosse ever known in the  senior league, seventeen to a duck's  egg. The only time in the Province  when this score was exceeded occurred  in New Westminster last year when  that city's team beat Vancouver 21  toi.  The New Westminster team beat  Nelson on July 1st and 2nd by 3 to 1  and 8 to 3. The Royal City boys,  when passing through on Saturday,  gave glowing accounts of the hospitable manner in which they had  been treated. The old timers on the  team were Wells Gray, Biscuits Peele,  BobCheyne, Alex. Turnbull, Lynch,  and Barlow Galbraith. The balance  were comparatively new to senior  ranks.  Kamloops, it is understood, has  crawfished on the Fulton cup match  set for the 13th, as agreed when Vernon,-dropped out of the race. Itis  stated they will import some men and  stand by the original schedule which  slated them here for Labor Day.  The juniors  are  very enthusiastic  over the  national  game  and  a  big  bunch are out practising every night.  It would be a good idea to form two  teams,   which  could easily be done,  and arrange a schedule of matches. ' ���������  It .was too bad the Royal City boys  could not stay over here and give an   ,  exhibition   game.     Most    of    them, "  howeVer, were compelled to be back at  work Monday which prevented  this  being done.  Brantford ran up against the Shamrocks on Friday and Saturday lost in  a trial to capture the Minto cup. The  challenging team was twice defeated  6-3, 6-2. Ten thousand people witnessed the games.,  RIFLE AND TARGET.  George Turnbull, of New Westminster, created a new record at the Central Park range last Saturday, scoring  102, 7 shots at 200, 500 and 600 yds., out  of a possible of 103. Cunningham  made 98 and Johndro 04. At the 600  range tliey fired a further 10 shots,  when, out of a possible 60, Turnbull  and Cunningham tied at 48 and Johndro made 47.  Eminent Oculist.  Dr. McKay Jordan, the eminent eye  specialist of Vancouver, was in the  city yesterday but was compelled to  return west at once to Vernon being  called there by important business.  Ho will however return in five or six  weeks, Qf-1 whichlldue__notice__.will _be_  given, and/Will then be prepared to  receive those who wish to consult him.  Dr. Jordan's reputation as an oculist  extends from one end of Canada to the  other and he has been the instrument  of many wonderful cures of difficult  diseases of the mo it delicate organ of  the human body Upon his return be  will take centrally located quarters at  the Union Hotel.  The United States squadron now  visiting England received the unusual  honor of being permitted to enter  Portsmouth harbor, the Empire's chief  arsenal, * Foreign warships have al-  . nays anchored off Spitheau before. ������,>.__r������ni.1iiini:*M1ii  Ltd.-  W '  fit  NOTICE.

The plaza was almost deserted; the shnbby men who seem  to be as much a part of Its adjuncts as the trees and the benches,  and who sit, day and night, with  their hats pulled far over thetr eyes,  and their hands ln their pockets,  thrusting "their feet out Into the paths,  fcad disappeared. The babel of Chinatown -was hushed, and even tho electric cars, clanging their way through  Kearny Mreet, seemed remote. The  Jlne of battered carriages that stretches  ���������Always along the eastern side of the  *j>]nza formed gray silhouettes against  ��������� grayer background, the horses' heads  .drooping dejectedly. Now and then, a  eoft-shod Chinese "-hurtled by, ln his  ���������gu-ssage, compassed in a few steps,  tram the Occident to the Orient. Thc  ���������gilt caravel crowning the Stevenson  memorial fountain caught and rollected  damply the faint glow of the street  lamps, and the Ins.rtpiion on the block  of granite forming the shaft was dimly discernible.  Horace Belden stood before it. Like  the other shabby men who frequent the  ���������plaza, he wore his hat over his eyes,  ���������.nd carried his hands In his otherwise  empty pockets, and, like them, he had  "been sitting on one of the benches,  ���������with his feet thrust out Into the path.  He had been thinking of Stevenson and  S������ls wonderful spirit; reflecting that he  ���������osed to come and sit ln this plaza when  ���������"things were running crossways," and  ���������wondering If, with Stevenson, things  ocemed always to be "running cross-  ���������ways" In spite of his "brave front. So  *be got up to read again the inscription that ho knew by heart.  "To be honest, to be kind"���������and  Stevenson knew something about poverty and ill-health and discouragement,  too���������"to renounce, when that shall bo  ���������necessary, and not be embittered"���������ah,  but Stevenson created! When the  ���������world was black without, he turned to  fcls own! ., It he had been a musician,  ���������a singer, would he have been able to  ���������withstand eo nobly the disappointments and failures that he might have  met? If he had seen youth and position and voice and pupils slip from  bim, one by one, leaving him stranded  at last, having given his life to one  thing, loving but - one thing, knowing  ���������but one thing, and that one thing gone  Irom hlni, could he have conceived the  idea ot renunciation Nvitliout bitterness.  To do something that endures Is to  crystallize hope; then, failure seems  temporary, for * there remain the uncounted years bt "the future. But to  the singer, whose best work is born and  ���������dies in a breath, there is only the present Instant. And yet, Belden thought  passionately, no man, not even Stevenson, had ever loved to write as Horace  ;33elden'had loved to sing. Nothing that  ���������endures, he argued lo himself, can be  ���������es dear to, the 'human heart;;as that  which never can be Imprisoned, never  can be possessed; that moves men  -mightily, and dies in the effort, to live  again in the next breath. Could one  "bave that power, and see the years  ������teal tt * from him; without* bitterness?  A drunken man lurched.out of the  ; -surrounding gray ness, and, with an un-  ���������eteady linnd, drew a cup' of. water.  ���������Straightening himself, with an attempt  ���������ot dignity, lie waved the cup at the  ���������caravel. "Here's to you, Louis, old  "boy*-" he gravely said. "If you were  -is-ive, you wouldn't see me here drinking this."  Belden staged at him a moment in  ���������aisgust, and then turned impatiently  away and wandered down Kearny  r. treet. He was cold, but what of that?  3Ie was hungry, but what of that? He  ���������nvas without a dime, but he had grown  rased to that. The only thing that impressed itself on his consciousness was  " that over in Mission street, at the opera house, they would be singing  ".Faust" within an hour, -with Helene  Solani as Marguerite"and a new tenor  -as Faust. He stopped at the window  -of a music-store where her portrait was  -displayed, * her name in large type on  the margin. He looked at the picture  critically, noting the calm poise ot the  3_ead, and the authority in the attitude.  The line o������ the lips, as he remembered  Ht, should be softer, the chin less Arm,  and the level glance less certain than  ,-thiS.  She had made her debut as Marguerite, and he remembered how her voice  had trembled in her opening phrase,  ���������"No, slgnor. io non son damlgella ne  bella." He had whispered reassuringly  to her, and she had smiled at him gratefully. By the time they had reached  the third aot she had forgotten the audience "~and-*^*tus^inslng^supenbly,__������nd_  at the end of the great trio the people  rose from their seats, shouting, and  ���������when he ltd her down to the footlights  she was crying. He had never seen  ier weep but once again. That was  ������������������when, at the benefit which the com-  tpany gave poor XIco**.til, Belden, the  ���������prlmo tc-norc. sang "Kathleen Ma-  ���������vourneen." She v.... to sing the next  number, and they had to wait for her.  ���������"���������That Horace BeHhn."* she had sobbed,  "he breaks tny heart when he sings like  Vhat!"  Leiden smiled confidentially at the  picture, and .worid<--*-d if she remem-  berc-d. lie stroll_d along, oblivious to  "his surroundings, io'.t in memories of  the days when his name had been pla-  ���������card.d above hers, and enthusiastic  ���������critics had hailed him as "the purest  lyric tenor of the century-" When he  realized the pre.ent again, he found  "himself at the stage-door of the opera  house. He wondered if she had arrived. Should he make an effort to see  her? It was years since he had entered the stage-door of an opera house.  "While he hersltaicd, a carriage rumbled around the corner, and stopped  near him. Someone opened the door  ���������and stepped out. and then a voice���������-the  rich, sweet voice that he remembered���������  said: "Is it very wet. Marie?"  '���������Tea.   madame:   and   madame  must  not talk," replied the maid.  "Why   don't   they   open   the  door?"  ���������queried the voice.  Belden .impulsively  started  forward.  At.   that   moment   the   stage-door   was  Siorriedly   'opened;'"   and      the     light  ���������-streamed out.    Solani stepped from he:*  i_ar_*jage.   only  lier  Mrulght  brow   and  -weary eyes showing ab >ve the lac? that  _-iufrleu '.lie lower i--.it of hor* race.    In  a Hash, Iluldeu s;*w his own figure���������hi..  -���������-aunt, uri-ili.'.'.pSi face, shabby clothing.  ���������rayed   l!i������en   and   ragged   shoes.      He  shrank   tuck   i_tio   th-   shadow..,   and,  Tilh a (-are.'-**.-: g*!fin'**: in his direction.  *(.*-.e paK-.ee   In'o   the  theater    and  the  ���������__>or waa closed behind lier.  Belden's hands were clenched and his  teeth were set. That was Helene Solani, one-time prima donna of the Ma-  pieton Opera Company, -and he, Horace  Belden, prlmo tenore when she made  her debut, cowered in the dark and  dared not speak lror name as she  passed him. And why? Because he  had outlived his power. But had he?  It he could get one more chance���������if  someone who had iuiluence would  speak to the manager ot this company,  for instance���������Helene was always an  angel ot mercy to the unfortunate���������If   .   Then lie remembered the drunken  man   in   the  plaza.     "Here's  to  you,  Louis, old boy!   If you were alive "  Ho laughed bitterly and turned away,  stumbling toward the street.  But the voice lie had heard haunted  him. He wondered it she still used  that fascinating trick ot phrasing in  the ballnd. And had her voice gained  power enough for the great trio? It  hnd sometimes seemed a shade light  for that. So, with his memories and his  jdlsappolntmcrrt, he summoned afresh  all the ghosts ot his past, and they  taunted him Into a. fever. Tyie, ho hnd  not tasted food for more than forty-  eight hours, but hia physical hunger-  was as nothing compared to his longing to hoar again that voice.  Stop���������there Is the Kormesse! They  nre beginning the second act. It was ;i  hand-organ. He cursed the owner, and  passed on. Money���������ho must have  money; Ire must hear that opera. He  wondered that he had ever called  "Faust" old-fashioned. What had the  new operas, what had Mascagnl and  Leoncavallo and Puccini to offer a  tenor���������a lyric tenor-���������that could compare with the "Salve! Dlmora?" He  was hurrying, almost running out Market street, when his glance was arrested  by a sign.: "Anlmatoscope. Free Show  before the Pictures... Admission ten  cents."  People wore filing rapidly Into the  place, and he knew that while one audience, was being entertained by the  moving pictures downstairs, the one  assembling listened to cheap vaudeville  turns in the small theater above. He  entered rind asked for the manager.  "Busy,", replied the man. at the window, shortly.     *  "I know. He is always busy," feverishly urged Belden, "but it is important. I���������I can sing. I want to sing for  him."  "The deuce you do!" growled the  man, with a keen glance at him.  "Broke,; eh?"  "I must see him! I���������I have sung with  Solani.   Tell him ukt."  The man laughed. "Better move on,"  he suggested.  "I was -witli Maplcton for four  years," pleaded Belden. A door opened  and a man came rapidly out of the  ���������theater and paused behind him."I  studied with Lamperti���������oh, you won't  know what that: means! I studied in  Italy.   I���������-I���������yes, yes, you. hit it right.  I'm broke, you know.- and "  "Oh, come 'now.'move' on, will you?  I haven't lime lo stand here fooling  with you all night.   Move on!"  "Hold on a minute!" exclaimed the  man behind Belden. "You say you can  sing?"   ,  "Yes, I ,ean," eagerly replied Belden.  "I have sung with Solani."  *   "Yes,  you look it," said  the other,  derisively. '"What can you sing?"  ���������'Anything;  opera,' ballads "  ���������.':��������� "Coon-songs?"  "No!" blazed Belden.    "Not If I "  His manner: suddenly changed. "I am  sorry,", he said, quietly, "that my repertoire, doe's not include coon-songs. I  never before appreciated their value."  "Oh, well, never mind." replied the  man, "I guess you'll do. I'm the manager of this; show." He turned .to the  man at, the window, "diet and Hat-  tie struck for ten dollars," he brielly  explained. "Thought they had; mo in  the door. Told 'em I'd go out in the  street, aiid pick up somebody in ten  minutes ..who'd take their turn. It was  ���������a great bluff, but I done it!   Come on."  He led Belden through the bare room,"  filled with: wooden benches, which  served as the theater, and into a dirty  little dressing-room, where there were  several other people. Belden got a confused-impression of coarse jokes and  smothered laughter, of short-skirted  women and men in burnt cork, but  there was only,one thought in his mind.  The manager tossed him a dirty copy  of a cheap collection of songs.  "There you are," he said. "Find  something you know."  Belden caught at his arm as he  turned away. "How���������how much?" he  asked. The manager looked at him  shrewdly.  "Oh, well, we'll see how you catch  on," he said, carelessly.  "No, no! How much?" persisted Belden.  "Four bits?" suggested the manager.  *-^Belden=shoo___,hlS-J-i.e^_.___^Ai_dollar,"^  he said.   Admittance to the gallery of  the  opera   house    was  a  dollar,   and  I'Faust" was to run three nights.  The manager swore. "What do you  think we are running here, anyhow?"  he asked���������"a gold mine?" Belden laid  down the book of songs and turned j  away. "Well, six bits, then," reluctantly said tho manager. Belden looked  blindly for his hat. "Well���������see here���������  till right; a dollar goes. I can't let  Chet and Hattle think they own me,  anyhow. And you do your turn every  half-hour until we do?..-���������about eleven-  thirty."  __c!J..n again took tip the hook of  songs and glanced through it. He was  dimly conscious that a. blatant piano  was Jangling somewhere, and of occasional tempestuous applause. The  manager was having an altercation  with someone outside. "No, it don't  go," he said. "I told you I'd do it, and  I done it, see? You can't bunko me  that-way. No, he's here and he's going  to stay, seo? You and Hattie, you lose  your turn to-night, that's all." A string  of oaths followed from the other man.  The manager joined Belden again.  "Found anything? 'Kathleen Mavour-  neen,' eh? That's all right, too. Mrs.  Blumenberg, the lady out at the piano,  will play it all right for you. She's a  bird," he added. "Here comes Katie  off.   Now it's your turn."  Belden, In a daze, walked out on the  tiny platform that served as a stage,  and handed his music over the footlights to the fat woman with dirty finger-nails, who sat at tho piano.  "Turn, turn, turn, turn; Turn, turn,  turn, turn," she played.  The shabby room faded away, and  Belden stood once more in the great  New York theater. The lights In the  house were lowered, and tiny (leeks oC  llame hero anil there suggested diamonds. He he-surd the burst of welcoming applause die away, followed by  the soft rustle of the audience settling  Itself to listen to its favorite tenor.  Helene Solani and Girado, the basso,  were standing in the wings nodding to  him, and the orchestra was humming  softly at his feet.  "Kathleen Mavournuen, the gray dawn  is breaking,"  His voice rang out silver clear, and  never had Ks haunting pathos impressed him as it did now.  "Let her break!" called ���������a. rough  voice in the audience, and loud laughter followed, but Belden, far away ln  his youth, did not hear it.  "Oh, hast thou forgotten this day we  must part?  It may be for years "  "Four years? Oh, it it's nil the same  to you, let's call it fourteen, at hard  labor," came from the -man in front,  followed by shouts of rough laughter.  "Oh, why art thou silent, thou voice of  my heart?  Why ������.rt thou silent, Kathleen Mavour-  neen?"  Sang Belden to Helene Solani, weeping  silently In the wings.  "Turn, turn, turn, turn," played the  fat old woman. A policeman walked  down the aisle, and warned the talkative young man.  "Kathleen Mavournoen, awake from  thy slumbers."  "Yes, wake up! Come, Kittle, Klttie.  Kittle!" shouted" the young man. Hoots  and cart-calls followed. Belden quailed  ���������as if he had been struck, but sang  bravely on:  "It may be for years, and it'may be  forever������������������"  But n'o one was paying the slightest  attention to him now. The interest of  the audience was entirely given to a  dispute between the young man and  the policeman, and nobody but Belden  himself heard his voice split and break  on the high note, and die away almost  in a whisper. It was only when the  piano stopped that they became; aware  of him again," and he hurried off the  stage, appalled by the chorus of hoots  and jeers and cat-calls that followed  him.   The manager met him.  "That's all right," he said. "Livened  'em up, didn't you?"  Belden shrank away from him and  moved toward the door.  "Here, where you going?" called  the'.manager; "You go on again in a  few minutes." Belden paused, irresolutely, and theiwxiontinued liis uncertain progress toward the door, which  seemed to be miles away.  "Here, you, come back!" The manager was tugging at his arm. "If you  go now, you don't get no pay, see?"  Belden shook his head. "Well,: then,  you stay. You're all right. You made  lots o' fun for 'em."  Belden shivered.V "I���������I am not well,"  he said.: "I think I will go now, thank  you."  The/manager looked at him curiously. "Say," he exclaimed, "you didn't  think you couldsirig, did you?"  "Other people have thought so," said  Belden, "but Hhey were mistaken, I  suppose. Thore are so many people .in  the world who are mistaken,; you know.  Especially singers. Good-evening."  "Here, don't you want your hat?"  Belden took his hat rather reluctantly���������he objected to receiving anything  from the manager���������and made his way  to the door, where he paused again,  bowed courteously to: the; staring people In the room, and gently closed the  door after him.  "Well, I'll be damned!" slowly exclaimed the manager. "Daffy, I guess,  but I wonder what made him thinlc he  could sing?"  Belden, stumbling out into the street,  was saying over and over to himself:  "That was my voice!   My voice!"  ._':-'_ _ * . *  A policeman found him wandering  about in the vicinity of Golden Gate  Park toward* morning, and sent him to  the Receiving HospitaJ, where he wa*;  booked as suffering from starvation  and exposure, resulting ln the grippe.  Me raved for hours of Solani and Maple-  ton, and Insisted upon .singing "Salve!  Dimora" to the interne. Late in the  afternoon he died. ��������� A : newspaper reporter, who happened to be at the hospital, suspected a story;- and went to  Solani for the details.

A young woman, for instance  A Study of Autumn Leaves.  THE scientific investigation of various problems connected with the  gorgeous coloring of our autumn  foliage has been undertaken by  the new United States Bureau of Plant  Industry. Some of the results obtained  by Albert F. Woods, the physiologist of  the bureau, are thus detailed ln the  "Sun" (New York):  "The color of a leaf, says Mr. Woods,  is furnished by minute grains of pigment, within Its cells. What we see ln  the fresh leaf is not simple green, but  a combination of many pigments,  which when mixed appear as solid  green.  "Red Is one of the color elements of  fresh leaves. Reddish coloring matter  Is usually in liquid form, within tho  sap contained In the leaf cells. Yellow,  another normnl color element, when  combined with green. Is tho natural  shade of thc grains of pigment within  each cell. Brown Is the normal color of  the walls ot the coll.  "To explain the leaf coll, Mr. Woods  says that he would exhibit a very thin  rubber ball filled with the white of an  egg mixed with water. Ho would add  to this liquid sufficient rod dye to dissolve and color the entire solution. Ho  would udd nlso Paris green, whose  minute grains will not dissolve. Yellow  grains of some powdered substance,  likewise insoluble, he    would    mingle  who Is of the clinging vine pattern, an. { "with the green.

SURGICAL operation performed  under necessity by an.aniateur in  the Maine woods was,quite as remarkable as the operations of city specialists, who are provided.with almost  .perfect implements and elaborate conveniences. The accident was a dislocated shoulder, and the extempore surgeon's outfit was of a kind hitherto unused in; professional practice. ' It is described by a writer , in the Lewiston  "Journal."  Old Sabattus was not an Indian, as  the nickname implies, but a Yankee  guide. One autumn he .was left on a  steamboat at one of the upper landings  on Moosehead Lake whlle:the engineer  went ashore with some guests.  A man named Meservey came aboard,  and in fooling around the boat managed to fall into the flre-plt and put  his shoulder out of joint. Here was a  dilemma. The other: members of the  party would not be back for half an  hour, and the injured man was in great  pain.  The guide was a man of expedients.  He^gotaTOpe^andticd^hislEatle n t se  curely to a post. Then he tied another  rope around the man's wrist and fastened the loo-ve ond.pf.it to a pulley ol  the engine. He managed somehow tc  turn on steam, and the pulley began tc  wind up the rope.  It drew the arm out tight in beautiful shape, and presently the Joint  snapped bark into Its socket. Then  Sabattus jumped around to strut on  steam, while the pulley kept on winding.  "How dc:s it go? I don't know where  it Is!" gas*p*--d th������ guide, excitedly. "1  can't slop the blamed thing!" And thc  pulley rif-nnwhllc was slowly but surely pullirg the patient to pieces. ill������  eyes were sticking out of their sockets,  and he screimed and gasped for  breath.  Sabattus danced around like a wild  man, not knowing what to do, when he  happened to _py a hatchet lying near,  and, jumping for that, he cut the rope.  Some years afterward a lot of summer company arrived at Greenville.  Sabattus was there, too, and presently  a distinguished-looking man, one of the  newcomers, went up to him and said,  with a meaning smile, "Aren't you the  man who practices surgery by steam?"  Sabattus admitted that he was "that  same feller."  New Words.  Many new words have been brought  into use by the automobile. The correct word "Tor a private collection of  automobiles, equivalent to "stubb;,"  seems to afford .oniildernrblt* difiiculty.

Holding the. bnll up to the light, the  combination of the colors in its texture  and Interior substance would be the  green tint of plant life.  "To demonstrate tho autumnal  changes In leaf tints he would spread  upon,' a table hundreds of green beads.  Interspersed with others of brown, yellow and red. Then he would take out  all of one color, then all of another, and  so on, the general shade or tint of tho  entire mass undergoing a change all  the while. Just so in the autumn leaf���������  when any of its elementary colors disappear the general effect of those remaining clustered In any particular  area is altered.  "If an autumn leaf turns entirely red,  this tinting is due to the fact that only  its red pigment is left. If it is yellow,  all of the other coloring has been destroyed, except the . minute yellow  grains. If. the leaf turns brown it can  be safely diagnosed as dead. All living  tints have disappeared, leaving only  thebrown;walls of the cells. Tlie brown  leaf Is a dingy ruin, within which; every spark'of life has been extinguished.  "Thore has long been a controversy as  to the cause of the autumn leaf's coloration, said Mr. Woods. Some botanists have attributed it to frosts. We  aro finding that light frosts, not sufficient to kill leaves, greatly facilitate  their coloration by causing an increase  within them of a normal chemical ferment, which attacks the color compounds or color generators ln the cells.  We are finding that the oxidation of  these color compounds by, this ferment  causes the ��������� various shades of color,  especially the purples, oranges, .etc.  The yellows are normally present in  the*;leaf. . .  "Autumn leaves containing sugar,  such as the maples, sumacs, 'gums,  etc., easily oxidize, and thus form the  rich reds, purples and violets so beautiful to the eye. That is-why thes������,  especially the hard maples, v give the'  most beautiful autumn* leaves. Autumnal oak loaves do not' attract admiration because they contain much  tannin. The oxidation color of tannic  acid is dirty brown. Leaves which die  quickly never give autumnal colors.  "The most gorgeous autumn leaves,  according to Mr. Woods, are produced  by a long-drawn-out fall,' whose days  gradually cool from summer heat to  winter snow. But if the frost should  come early and the weather should be  uneven this fall we need not expect the  true autumnal splendors. A" .heavy,  sudden and early frost would kill all  leaves alike and turn them to a monotonous brown.  "Crimson and scarlet autumn leaves,  the most beautiful of all, are more  abundant in the cooler parts of this  country than elsewhere in the world."  /  Staring Labor at The Hub:  "They're busy���������I'll call you." That  Is the exasperating sentence usually  heard on the telephone when one Is ln  a great (hurry to "get" the person at  the other end of the line. The man  who uses the telephone often knows  that the phrase "I'll call you" means  nothing���������that It is never used seriously  ���������and after waiting a few minutes he  calls again. Sometimes the message  comes back, "Still busy," or "Busy  yet," or "Busy���������I'll call you," and occasionally the operator delights the  man in the booth by saying, "There  they are!"  They have a different method ln Boston, as a visitor to that city discovered  a few days ago. He called up a business house and was told, "The line Is  busy; ring off!" It was a sharp, rasping voice, and the stranger connected  lt at once with a small cigarette smoking boy. "I don't believe thsy'r.. biiAy  at all," he said to tho people near him.  "I'll try again."  "Give mo No. 4000, please."  "The line Is busy; ring oft."  "How do you "  "The line is busy; ring off."  ".Well, try them again, and "  "The Une Is busy; ring off."  There was never a change In the  tone, never a word more of less, and  the stranger saw in his mind's eye how  the Impertinent youngster sat repeating over and over again the reason-  destroying sentence.  After a five minutes' waiting he  made another attempt to reach his  friend.  A woman's voice answered and asked  the regulation question, and in a few  seconds the rasping voice was heard  again, "The line is tousy; ring oft."  "Say! are you sure there is-���������"  "The line is busy; rijig oft."  Then he hung up the receiver, and  when he gained the ear of the central  office again'he asked: ."Can that boy  say anything.besides 'The,line is busy;  ring oft'?"  "Yes, if it's fixed right.

Carlyle and Disraeli  M  AGNANIMITY superior' to his  own could shame even the dogmatic Carlyle. /The man; whose  arrogance of. opinion never! permitted  him to take anything back once had: to  confess that a Jew had disarmed his  bigotry and changed his insulting prejudice Into gratitude and.respect.  . ��������� Disraeli, whom he. had often reviled  in speech and in print, had every reason, to know how bitterly Carlyle despised him and; his race; and; after he  had become the most powerful man in  ErfgIah"d-he_took*"his-revenge.���������It- waa  the vengeance inflicted by a great man  who could forget his personal antipathies upon a groat man who could not.

Carlyle declined the title na being out  of keeping with the tenor of his "poor  existence," and the pension because he  was not hr needy-, circumstances; but  the fact of the offer and the generous  language In whicli It was conveyed  startled and subdued.him. He wrote  frankly to Disraeli:  "Allow me to say that the letter, both  In purpose and expression, is worthy to  be called magnanimous and noble; that  it is without example in my own poor  history, and 1 lliirrk It Is Unexamined,  too. In the history of governing persons toward men of letters at the present or at any time; and that, I will  carefully preserve it as ono of the  things precious to memory and heart."  f-trbiequeiitly he wrote to his friend,  tho Countess of Derby:  "Mr. Disraeli's letter is really what I  called It, magnanimous and noble on  his part. It reveals to me, after all the  hard things I have said of him, a. new  and unexpected slr*:ilum of genial dignity and manliness of character which  I had by no means given him credit  for. Jt Is, as my'penitent heart admonishes me, a kind of 'heaping coals  ot fire on my head,' and I do truly repent and promise to amend."

The first  lot of young lobsters that went out  quarreled so violently in their tanks  that they arrived In a deplorable.state  of dismemberment. Many were dead,  and the bottoms of the tanks were  strewed deep with claws. "We can  better that," said the fish;; commissioners; so when' they shipped another lot (at a cost of ten thousand dollaro.1 thoy put wooden  wedges In tlie big claws * of all th_  young lobsters, so that they could not  fight. They arrived in good order,  /were put into the bay, and not one of  ^hem was ever seen alive again. After  a while lt was remembered that the  wedges had not been taken out of ihe  lobsters' claws before they were turned  loose. Consequently they ��������� could not  shut their, claws;' consequently they  could not get tlieir living; consequently  they starved. Does anyone know a  sadder story than that?     *.*'   '  .

Whether on- account of the,  music or from some other cause, the  Empress became Inspired With a, divine  afflatus and began to utter ' the  thoughts put into her mind by the deity. "There is a land to the westward."  she exclaimed, "and in that land an  abundance of treasure, gold and silver,  dazzling to look upon. This land I will  now; bestow,upon you."  The Emperor pushed away his lute.  "If you go up to a high place and look  toward the west," said he, "there Is no  land to be seen, but only the great  waters. They are' lying spirits who  have spoken to you."  Then' the. god was filled with anger,  and again he moved the Empress to  prophesy. "You are not fit," she, said,  "to rule this empire. Go the one  road!" .  .���������But the Prime Minister tremhled  when he: heard these words,* * and ; said  to his master: "I.���������������������������am*' troubled, my  heavenly sovereign, by this terrible  message.

But the Empress put herself at the  head other fleet. Invaded the land of  gold and silver with her warriors, and  soon made the three kjngdoms of Corea  tributary to Japan.

At  length, when the feast was nearly ended,  the chief took out his watch and said:  "Countess, the happiest moments of my  life have always been the shortest.' 1  have another engagement this night. Bad  as I am, none ever appealed to my honor  in vain. You have received me as a gentleman, and I shall lake nry departure as  one. As for you, my men," he said, looking sternly, round with hand on his pistol, "I charge you to take nothing from  this house. He who disobeys ine dies  that instant."  The chief then asked for pen and paper, and wrote some words upon a* sheet,  which he handed to his hostess. "This,  madam, will serve-to protect you in future.

Since then I've made it a practice to put  all my worries down in the bottom of  my heart, then set on the lid an' smile.  . . . Tire way to git cheerful is to  .mile when you feel bad, to think about  somebody else's headache when yer own  is 'most bustin', to keep on believin' the  sun is a-shinin' when the clouds is thick  enough" to cut. Nothin' helps you to it  like thinkin' more about other folks than  about yerself." '  Drug Habits.  It Is  a   regrettable    fact,   says    tlie  "Youth's  Companion,"   that  nothing  i3  easier to form than, had physical habits,  and nothing harder to break than such  j habits when they hnvn been formed. For  s  this reason the watchful care of young  ; people during the  habit-forming period  ;  of life snuuld be the duty of parents and  i guardians.  I      Among these bad habits may he placed  ! thoso little tricks of self-rriedieation that  aro so fatally easy to fall into.   There  comes, for example, tho first attack of  acne, an eruption of the skin, to whicli  Not Adapted to Melons.  An army officer sends the "Youth's  Companion" an account of an experience he had when he was on duty  along tho Rio Grande. He put up  one night at a small town in Cameron  County at a time'when a session'of the  ' court had filled the town with strangers.  , Some' of the visitors wore sitting on the  "piazza of the boarding-house after supper, and .conversation turned 'upon the  fertility of soils." A.stranger from Starr  -County,-which.is near Cameron, waited  his turn and'then said: *  "Well, I reckon the most fertile piece  o' ground in Texas is up on Ed Jones's  ranch in old Starr.

It is a well-known fact that alcohol is  thc basis of many of the so-called tonics,  and t3 to bo found in considerable quantities in some of them. Whatever opinion one may hold of alcohol as a medicine, nothing can be'sriid in favor of allowing it to masquerade in unknown  quantities and doubtful quality in all  sqrts of medicines put up for self-doctoring. No more insidious plan for the  forming of n bad habit could be devised.  If one needs alcohol one's doctor will  know it, and! how much and what kind;  and the safe way is to go to him for a  prescription. We have all heard of the  man who was unwilling to wash in the  River Jordarr because he expected that  a miracle would be performed. The Jordan is for all of us the formation of  clean, healthy, common-sense habits.  Then we shall not need miracles.  In this connection the "Argonaut"  points out that the health department of  New York City has been investigating  the adulteration of drugs there with  startling results. Samples of phenacetin  were obtained from more than three hundred drug stores: Less than one-fifth of  these were found to be pure. ' Some were  adulterated with greater or less percentages of aeetanalid, others were pure ace-  tanalid-with 'no trace of phenacetin in  them. As phenacetin costs one dollar an  ounce, and aeetanalid eighteen or twenty  cents a pound, the incentive is apparent.  Samples of tinctures to the number of  two -hundred and' fifteen were also examined, and of these, forty" were found,  to contain wood alcohol instead of the  real article. Wood alcohol is a.p'oison,  and in time-produces blindness, paralysis  and St." Vitus's dance. When examined,  the dealers confessed that they had  bought the drugs from peddlers at from  one-quarter  to one-half of.the  market  Incident of the Plague in  the Philippines.

Recent unfortunate labour troubles  have caused an ovei supply of logs to  the mills on Buriaid Inlet, but with  the ictuin ol a'lmcable relations  between the null owneis and their  emfljyees this congestion will be  removed and ltunbeiing at the Coast  resume its wonted activity.
