Tlie remark*-.of the speakers  were   frequently     punctuated     wiLh  applause and the lar^c majority  wore  certainly in accord  with   tin-  position  taken   hy   the   Premier.    Mv.   .1.

Law and J.  Theo.  Wilson.  In opening the meeting the chair-  liMii staled that, nfter the addresses of  Mr. Taylor arid the Pi em ier, the  Conservative Association would hold  a meeting fur organization purposes  arrd those who had signed the roll of  the society or were willing to do so  were rearrested lo lemain behind,  lie understood, he said, the audience  were anxio'ti. to hear Mr. McBride so  would nor, detain theiu 1 Hither, hut  call orr Mi. Thos. Taylor to flist  addie**:-lire meeting.  Thomas Taylor, on lising to speak,  was icceived with cheers and prefaced  his remarks hy saying that he did ^not  intend on the present occasion to  give  an account of his stevv-udship* as  rep-  lesentative, hut would take advantage  ot   an   early   opportunity   to  do   so.  Referring to  the  previous campaign,  he h.ul always bee!i a strung  believer  in the party system of Government  and that his idea was a correcfoue hud  heeu proved hy the. enthusiasm*^vitb  which the-masses of-the  people had  taken up the mutter.     The fight was  now about to open   between  the Liberals and  Conservatives* and  he   was  srrr e that the latter \vouId lie victorious.  (Applause.)     He   wished*fto    pay "a*  tribute   ot. respect  to .his* honoured  leader,   wlro," like'-himseif,. ~had-*-been  elected'as a'stiaight  Conservative  in  1900  and   thought  British  Columbia  had reason to   De 'proud  'of   its "flrst  native son to attain the  highest oflice  in the gift uf the Province. -  (Cheeis).  He al.ways thought  the   best, way   to  judge of a man's past career was to see  how lie was received where he lived  and carried on his avocation.   Shortly  alter Mr. Mc Bride's accession  to the  Pienriership   he  had  the  pleasure  of  attending   the public   reception   tendered to hiiu in his native city,  New-  Westminster,   and   was   more    than  pleased   with   the   great  enthusiasm  displayed.     All   shades   of    political  opinion took  pait in  the  demonstration and it was one of which any man  might well he proud. This showed thai  the Premier whs most respected where  he wai best known and such a tribute  was    one    which     strengthened,    if  possible,   his contidence   in   Mr.   McBride. (Cheers.) Mr. Taylor concluded  hy   saying   that   he   was   not   yet  it  candidate,   bitt  it'   he   received    the  nomination at the convention   to  be  held shortly he  would  be more  than  proud to cai ry the Conservative banner  to victory. He bad implicit confidence  in his leader,   he had   implicit   confidence in the gentlemen caiied upon to  join  the   cabinet,   and   he   was sure  when the election was over and Mr.  verled into  learns   to  Eagle.

(Loud applause.)  Hon. Kichaid McBride wns loudly  cheered on coining tn the front of the  platform to commence his address  und it was some time before he was  permitted to ptoceed. In opening, he  stared that while on the tram he had  been met by a telegram fiom the  Conservative Association atRevelstoke  asking him to speak at a Conservative  niriEs meeting and he had replied he  would be glad to do so. Accordingly  he was present, and while not wishing  to deliver what might he termed a  campaign speech lie would touch  lightly on some of the matters  mentioned in the party platform. The  Premier first dwelt on the events  leading up to party lines'and pointed  out that it was not until 1800 such a  division had been made even in  Federal politics in this Province. He  had, however, been strongly in favor  of the move being taken for some  years and was glad to see that the  great mass of the people were determined to fight out the coming campaign as practically an issue between  Lrlierals and Conservatives. (Applause)  Of course, there were in the Province  various men who could not see eye to  eye with either of the great parties,  such as those favoring the Socialist  ticket, and they were perfectly right  to hold such..opinions,*- but he was  sure that a large majority-would line  up behind the Liberals and Conservatives and he was also sure that the  Governnient of which he had. the  honour to be lhe head : wonld be  sustained by two to one at the polls.

After the public meeting on Thursday night the local Conservative Association met and organized for' the  coming campaign. There were ubout  50 present and several new members  signed the roll. The proceedings  opi'iied with a -short address by the  Premier and a r.seolution was unanimously passed expressing confidence  in Hon. Richard McBride and his  administration.  The following ofllcers were then  elected: Hon. President, Hon. Richard McBride; President, F. li. Young;  1st Vice president, R. Gordon; 2nd  Vice-president, "\V. M. Newiniui; Sec-  Treas., C. M.

However, with a large' number of  friends, the rireinbei.s of the order met  in the lodge loom where a pleasant  arrd instructive time was spent, several  notable .speedier being delivered interspersed with music by the Independent Baird.  Upon the rrreetiirg being convened  Ed. Adair, President of the 1_. O. L���������  occupied the chair- iind was supported  on his right by Rev. W. (.. Calder-,  chaplain, and orr the loft by Mrs. M.

CAi.i-ion  hi dcliv.ei' an address., After a few  introductory remarks the speaker gave  a brief history of the movement for  civil and leligiou.s liberty of which  Or.-ingeisrn wa.s the outcome. Although the occasion being celebrated,  ht* said, was tlie 213th anniversary of  the battle of the Boyne when William  llf, then Prince of "Orange, wrenched  the crown from James II who wished j  the nation to retrogress, yet the move- [  incut began, 'almost three centuries  earlier, when.irr 1517 Luther nailed his  thesis on the church door irr Wurtein-  btrrg. The first blow was struck by  William the Silent, who, if he remembered rightly, wius tt grand uncle of  AVillinin of Orange. 0  Mr. Calder then lelated the incide'nts  leading up to the 37 years war; how  Wrlliam the Silent, when on a mission  to the French court, was out hunting  with thc King of France and Philip ol  Spain, and .with ,the French inonaiclr  became separated from the rest'in the  forest .of Fontainbleu. The King of  France, imagining, he wa-s,acqii!iinted  with the^iiuitter, disclosed the particu-  hirs of a plot that .had been arranged  for l.he concurrent massacre of all  ���������protestants in t France, *,_ltnly,-'Spaiii'  rind-'thc "'"Netherlands.' "William said  nothing at that"tiine, thus earning his  sobriquet of "tire silent," but, went  back to Holland and," although a  Roman- Catholic, stood by his largely  protestant people. ' 'Thus commenced  the war which resulted in the unification of the Netherlands and the introduction of the'policy of non-interference iy ith religion.  Sonie people seemed to imagine, continued the ' speaker,' that the anniversary of the battle   of   the   Boyne was  kept by Orangemen  in a spirit of exultation,  that the natmo of the Order  was inflammatory and many tried to  discount its itsefulnesss by the saying  "Rome's   day   is   past."   But none of  these   statements   were   ture.       Tne  Order did  not  exult iu the victory ol  protestantism   won   under King William so   much   as   in the civil liberty  thuL came as a natural result of religious  freedom.      This   was the ruling  principle in the Order, and although  he could look full in the face a man ot  arry religion,  and say  'I have no,.mini ..sty against you,' it must be remembered that thc church of Rome claimed  dominion over the sorrls  of men and  tints curtailed  their civil rights.   This  wa.s" what tho Orange Order was combatting,   knowing   that  history   had  shown the evils  attendant upon papal  domination.   The two countries which  had     heen   " most      largely      under  the     thumb     of      Romanism     had  proven   the   most   backward in   the  _woi'l-l.__^l,lji____it'jic'l"Li,iice1_tliaii_w!joiii  a   brighter   and   more  intelligent did  not   exist,   had   in   the   Revolution a  most terrible experience.      It was the  outcome of a revolt against priest rule,  aird its' baneful   effect was felt today  when   the   ruling  mass of  t he-people  was atheistic antl   making a supreme  ell'oit   lo   tear   tin   by   (he   roots the j  societies  and   orders" of  the   Roman  Catholic Church.  (fever that church had an opportunity of showing its power lor right  government it was in Spain, tlie nro.st  priest ridden nation in the world.  History showed that in many ways  the Spanish was a noble and brave  race, but today out of the 18.000,000  population, .two-third were unable to  rend or, write and were spending  enormous stuns out of their .small  earnings iu incense, masses and jewels  to place on statues of the Virgin. The  ancient glory of Spain had departed  anil almoct her lost province was lorn  from her grasp by the United States  during the late war, In view of these  facts and conditions in the two countries whore the Konian church had its  greatest chances for progress was it  not right to -.isk of the authorities of  that church,-���������"What have you done?"  Although the places where the Romanists had the most power were the  rrrost illiterate, as irr the Province of  Quebec, it must not be thought that it  was not agressiue. It claimed .superhuman nowcr and was, even at the  present day, sparing noellort to secure  power again. In the United States it  was striking at lhe public school system and iir every way was inimical to  the maintenance of civil and religious  liberty. ; Wius it not then right, on  occasions like the Twelfth of July, to  (���������iill to mind such champions of right  as William the Silent, Hampden,  Cromwell, "and Knox, and also the  Prince of Orange, men who high on  the; roll of fame under the hand and  eye of God secured these these liberties  for-the British Empire.

The promise by the Premier!that  assistance to the extent of $2000 would  be given for a High School at Kevelstoke came as a pleasant surprise to  many in the city. It haslx-en realized  for some time that such an institution  was necessary if the rising gerreration  of Revelstoke and vicinity were to  receive the.higher grades of the public  school curriculum and the knowledge  that when the summer vacation closes  the High school will proliably lie in  operation has Ik-oii received with  great satisfaction by teaehei-s and  scholars alike.' As it is too lat<* in the  season t6 arrange for a special building, and there is plenty of vacant  room ih the present public school, it is  probable that for 11)03 some of the  available space there will be utilized.  Not only will the news be welcome to  Revelstoke itself but also to the  fourteen public schools in the vicinity  that can send their scholars, with the  liece-ssarv .jualilicatious here. To meet  expenses it may be that a small charge  from scholars from outside the city  will Ixj required, but these details are  area matter of rrfterarrangeinent.  To Mr. C.

The chairman of the school trustees  wa.s seen on the matter and stated  that the institution of a High school  would do a very good thing and the  trustees would do" every thing in their  power to make the necessary arrange- ���������  ment.;. The matter- had been taken  up before but it wa.s feared the expense would be too great.

Having by iotir years of strenuous  effort infused broadcast into the minds  of Britishers and continentals the substitution of the nomen "prodigy" (oi  "freak" in designating the members jf  | their august profession, they have decided to start the reform movement in  the United Slates of America. The  wave was started on Sunday last, the  : New York papers say. in the "Prodigy  Department" at thc Madison Square  !

Bailey, Manager, Barnum & Bailey, Greatest Show on  Earth:  "Dear Sir,���������-We, the undersigned,  members of the Prodigy Department,  at an informal meeting held on April  5, were selected as a committee* to  draft you a letter expressing our respectful though emphatic protest  against the action of some person in  your employ in placing in our hall a  sign bearing the,, to us, objectionable  word "freak," and permitting another  person to call aloud, ''This way to the  freaks,' and beg you to remedy both,  these matters as soon as possible.  "We are disposed: to consider both  these actions .as oversights, or, because the person or persons complained of were unaware of how deeply we  feel the application of the word 'freak'  to us, and not to attribute either action to a violation of what you were  pleased to abide by at our meeting of  protest in London,' Eng.> three years  ago. At that time, you will remember, Rev. Canon Wilberforce. of Westminster Abbey, suggested the word  'prodigy' as a substitute for the obnoxious word 'freak,' and which ft is  but fair to yoti to say has been faithfully carried out while we were abroad  in Europe. The reappearance of the  objectionable sign here, it is needless  to add, is equally offensive as it was  in London, and the calling of "This  way to the freaks' even; more so, and  we feel sure that 'we have only to direct your attention to these fact's, inform you of our protest, and appeal to  your sense of justice to have them immediately abolished.

It could be plain  ly heard by the officer of the deck as  well as the men, and it continued for  several minutes.

The Cost of Radium.  The most interesting thing about  radium is not its cost, The London  Chronicle says. Bitf' as one statement on this point is as good as another, let us say that a milligramme of  radium would buy thc British Empire  or, the entire planet ; it doesn't matter. That will strike people. This  extraordinary substance is the most  powerfully "radio-active" of all things  known ; five hundred thousand times  more so than its next 'known rival,  uranium. Sir Oliver Lodge has pointed  out that radio-activity rs probably a  universal and fundamental property of  matter. This substance can be left  alone, untouched, for j-ears,; and glows  and glistens untircd. Whence is this ?  Radium takes up the vibrations in the  ether around it���������this being much, more,  probable than the statement attributed  to Sir William Crookes: that it gets its  energy from the air���������and transforms  theiri into light and heat. It takes the  light-waves of Roentgen and transforms them into visible light and plap-  able heat.  Experiments in Grafting.  Spring is  the time    when   dormant  6uds start to grow.      For ages apple  and other  trees  have  been  top-grafted in thc spring.     According   to the  processes of nature there did not seem  to be any other time to do the job.  There    was a man way out west who  in his idle moments one Summer day  cut a scion of the new year's growth,  and, making a longitudinal incision ip  a limb of an apple  tree,  tapered one  side of the scion and put it under the  bark.     He forgot all about it until lhe  nest  spring,   when   one   day   he   was  trimming thc lice and to his surprise  he  found  that the cut in  the  tree had  healed and that  the scion  had united  with the limb in close union arrd was  ready to grow,     lie did not disturb it,  but watched it put out leaves, and later it made a vigorous growth.    Realizing the  importance of this  summer  grafting    he put a large    number of  scions in the top of an apple tree that  bore poor fruit.     Most of these scions  grew, and he cut off thc limb grafted  the    year  before,    throwing    all   the  strength into the last year's scion. The  result was a phenomenal growth. This  pioneer, Theodore  Vv'iiliams, .of Benson, Neb.,    has  now    practised    this  method three years, grafting all kinds  of fruit trees in the summer.    He has  grafted cherry on to plum and successfully grafted deciduous trees.  The operation is very simple : a  child can do it. Mr. Williams' children, , eight to twelve years . old, have  set thousands of scions, and do it, not  as a labor, but as a pastime. As  soon as the terminal buds arc mature  in -the,summer this grafting operation  can begin, and be kept up as long as  the tree; is growing, so as to effect a  union between the'scion and the inner  bark of the limb. The best months  for the operation have proved to; be  the months of July and August.  A limb can be grafted orr opposite  sides ifv it is considered desirable, and  when the limb is cut away it will have  all the effect of two scions set in a  stump, but one scion in a limb will  usually do the best. By Ibis" method  a tree can he relopped in two years.  The method is the same that is  practised in budding trees. The bark  is cut in the same way and the scion  is put in in the place of the bud. While  no wrapping is 'necessary, it would be  better,to .wrap the limb ; in;a wet season the water will run down into the  slit, and in some cases rot will supervene before the wound closes up.  This operation is so simple that any  one who is the owner of a growing  fruit tree can test it for himself. The  scion is prepared for insertion.in the  same way that it would be for a splice  graft, and may be from two to six  inches long, with .from one to four  buds, besides thc terminal one. The  orchard owner does not have to hire  an expert to graft ; he can do it himself. Thc idea seems so revolutionary tjiat it is doubtful if it will take the  place, of stump grafting, when renewing thc tops of _ trees that bear undesirable fruit,'-but some trial'will convince the tree owner ihat it can be  done.���������C.

Realizing lhe significance  of thc news, thc Greek Government al i  once despatched to lire spot two ships  of  war,  with  whose    assistance    and  under whose superintendence thc divers  made a systematic search for the treasure,   ln a short time they succeeded in  bringing to the surface a quantity of  objects,   which  were  forthwith   transported to Athens.   Thc gem of the collection was the ligurc of a youth, rather  more than life-size, of singular beauty  and  the  finest    Greek    workmanship.  This exquisite,   bronze    niay, without  hesitaion, be assigned to the, age of  Praxiteles, to whose    lovely    Hermes  found at Olympia in 1877, and: now* in  the museum there, the head bears a  certain resemblance.   Indeed, it is not  too much  to   say   that   at ��������� last   the  Hermes of: Olympia has a formidable  rival to his claim to be the most beautiful statue in the world.  Mr. Vicars describes the process: of  restoration.   The head had escaped injury, but the rest of the statue was iu  fragments.   The work was done by M.  Andre   of   Paris,   for:i 20,000   francs  (������8ob).   He first constructed a sort .of  skeleton, on which he built up the statue, piece by piece/ beginning with the  lower extremities. Whenever two fragments required to be fastened together  the edges were joined by very powerful cement, and the pieces riveted on to  a framework of copper bands,  which  supported and braced them frbrii inside.  When each of the fragments had been  thus securely pieced together, each in  its proper place, the missing parts had  to be restored. ���������  When the figure had  been completely rebuilt M. Andre proceeded to cover the rivet-heads with a  kind    of putty, and then treated    thc  whole surface with ' a bronze-colored  preparation, so as to make, it of uniform hue and consistency.   The strong  Jacids in which the fragments had been  immersed for many weeks, for thc purpose of removing    the    incrustations  which so thickly coated them, had taken away all appearance of bronze from  the metal, and left it of a dull black." It  was accordingly found necessary to restore  the original  color    by artificial  means; and, though it may not be altogether pleasant, when gazing at this  exquisite figure, to reflect tliat the fine  bronze hue is the result of a thick layer ,of paste, which, moreover, conceals  rivets and seams and joints, it must be  remembered that without these aids it  would not have been possible to  restore the statue at all.   The statue is  supposed  to  represent  Paris ..holding  out*the Apple of Discord.  DEMONS OF  INDIGESTION.  Dyspepsia    and   Other  Stomach Disorders  The Cause of  Endless Misery.

They  met abroad many years ago, and kept  in touch until thc greijt showman died.

"It came about through Mr. Bar-  num's love of temperance and his great  kindness of heart," said the poet, in telling the story recently to friends. .VAn  old sailor who had been everywhere  and seen everything came to Barnum  one afternoon in Bridgeport, Conn.,  and asked him to buy some things  which he had carved from wood on his  last voyage across the Pacific. He  was ragged, hairy, hungry and altogether a terrible specimen.  '"Where have you been V asked the  showman.  " 'Been to Borneo,' answered the old  sailor.  " 'Well, you look it I Come in and  sit down. We are Just going to have  supper.' ........  "The sailor did come in, and after  thc meal begged Barnum to lock him  up in a cage, a cage with iron bars,  that he might refrain, from drinking.

Carlyle,-in the nineteen'.!! annual report of the Wisconsin Agricultural Experiment Station,  reports a seric.3 01" experiments in  feeding different varieties of swine,  including some razorbacks brought  from Indian Territory, and their progeny. We quote only the result of  experiments to test the value of skim  milk as swine food. Two lots wero  used, one of razorback and the other  of cross-bred razorbacks, Poland-Chi-  nas"arid ���������Berfcshires.  Both lots of pigs having been fed  for four weeks on a mixture of grain  fed without milk followed by seven  weeks, during which a limited quantity  of skim milk was fed in connection  with the grain, an excellent opportunity was afforded to measure the value  of skim milk as a factor in feeding  when fed with a liberal grain ration.  As soon as the skim milk was added  to the ration the rate of gain '.was  greatly increased. With skim milk  added to thc ration, both lots of pigs  _ate__n*ttich._largcr_ quantities of their_  grain, which would seem to indicate  that the addition of skim milk to an  all grain ration not only results in a  marked increase in the rate of Rrain,  but at the same time exerts a surprising influence of the appetites of the  animals, inducing them to cat much  more freely of their rations than they  were.." doing before the addition of  the skim milk to *. icir daily rations.  During the first 'our weeks of Uie  Itpcriment, when thc jiigs had no milk  A required 5W po'.n'.ii-j of ground corn,  ground rye and shorts, equal parts, to  produce 100 pounds of live weight gain  on the cross-b: cd pip.i, and 62.} pounds  of a similar mixture oi grain feed to  produce the same amount of gain on  pure-bred ra/.orbacks. Comparing the  amount of the same grain ration required to. produce 100 pounds of gain  on the salne pigs Ior the last seven  weeks of the experiment;..when approximately one' and four-tenths pounds of  skim milk was fed with each one pound  of the grain ration, we find that it required only 3,31 pounds of grain to produce too pounds gain on the cross-bred  pigs, and 364 pounds for the razor-,  backs; It will,' therefore, be��������� readily.:  seen that the feeding of the skim milk.  r-cstiUcfi in a marked saving in the grain'  feed required for ipo pounds of gain.  Each: 100 pounds of the skim milk fed  was found: to be equivalent to 6.26  pounds of grain for'the cross-bred pigs,  and to p.78 pounds of grain for the razorbacks, We cannot account for the  marked difference ir. the'effect upon.thc  two lots of pigs of feeding thc skim  milk with the grain, c't.upt that we  have itivariablv noticed that razorback  pigs never thrive well on a ration composed entirely of Cniccntratcd grain  feci- Thi;/ are always much more  healthful and thrive better when they  have' aci-.ejrs to abundant pasturage or  hulky food of some sojyt than where restricted to an iltgrain diet*  *    Water and Genlatine.  "It is a remarkable fact," according  to  The  Lancet,  "that water ��������� may    be  made  to  assume apparently the solid  form by adding 1 per cent, only of gelatin to it.   The more or less stiff jellies  used as table delicacies'contain probably over 95 per cent, of water.     The  jellyfish similarly contains only a small  percentage of solid * matter.    This remarkable property of gelatin    of rendering water,  so  to  speak,  solid has  been a problem to physicists. It is generally maintained, however, that after  all the water in a jelly is in a fluid condition, and that therefore it retains its  properties unchanged.     According to  this victv the solid condition of a jelly  is a property of the gelatin itself.    At  any rate, it" has been established that a  jelly behaves under certain physical experiments very little    differently from  water.   Thusjelly offers little more resistance to the passage of diffusing substances, than  does  pure water.   ��������� The  condition of water in a jelly, therefore,  resembles its state when absorbed by  a  highly  porous    substance    such  as  pumice-stone or sponge.      In    other  words, the gelatin on setting forms a  sort of fine spongy network, in which  the_ liquid water    is held    captive  by  capillary forces.    Gelatin is, in short,  a very capacious carrier of water, and  it is not unreasonable to suggest that in  -thosc-cascs- in^which-the-conveyance of  Borne liquids is found to be inconvenient thc use of gelatin might afford an |  easy way out of the difiiculty.   Thus, by  dissolving a very little gqlatin in milk  the milk could be carried    in    solid  blocks.    Moreover,  the    milk    would  gain rather than lose nutrient value by  thc process."

Ten minutes passed, during which Norma sat silent and submissive by* the bedside.   Then Astley spoke.  "Norma, kiss mc"  Did he suspect anything? There was  a world of anguish rn her eyes as they  met his, and a sob escaped her lips as she  presaed them to his forehead.  But ho made no remark; it cut her to  the heart, though, to see the 'uneasy/  glances which he threw at her in the  course of that day and the next.  On this second day he was allowed to  Set up, and it was while he was sitting  y the fire in his room, late'in the after  noon, that Norma, making the excuse of  ��������� letter to write, slipped out of the room,  ran to her own apartment, and taking  the twenty-five pound notes which ehe  had received by post from her London  tank that morning, ran downstairs very  quickly, and into the same long dark  corridor by which Lottie had entered  and auitted tlie house two evenings previously. **"  Norma had in the meantime-found out  that this corridor, which was in the most  unfrequented part of thc big house, led  to a little side-door into tho garden,  which was always unlocked. .  It was dusk, and there was a thick  mist over the grits... Nobody was likely  to see her, and Norma, who had not  been out of the house before since her  arrival, had no difiiculty in making her  way to the orchard without fear oi spying eyes. The lights glowed in the windows of the servants' quarters, but the  upper part of the house looked dark and  gloomy: Norma, sped over the grass,  dashed through the shrubbery, aud into  the sparsoly filled orchard, where the  whitened tree steins looked ghostly in  the gloom.  Lottie was waiting, shy,-timid, grateful, hysterical again. Norma gave her  the packet of notes, waited for no  thanks, *___[ turned to flee back into the  * hoasa.  She had scarcely got into the shrubbery, however, when sho heard -a man's  hunried footsteps, and almost shrieked  witb te-rror when she found herself in  the jmsb ot Astley, who, trembling, stag-  gerK Seized her arm and glared into  her fogs. - '  "Wkat are you doing out here?"said  he hoarsely.  -    CHAPTER XII.

Se they went upstaus, quietly, like  two naughty children, afraid of being  caught after an escapade; and it was not  until they were back, again-in Astley's  room that, he turned -to her, and again  demanded-why she had gone out in the  fog.  "Don't you know," said she, evading  his question, "that 1 haven't been outside tlie house since I earne here? .Surely you could spaie me those few minutes I"  **You   are making   excuses,"   said  he,  sharply.   ,"You went out  to see some-  ' one?

You  had made up your mind to stay, so I  understood. Have I grown too unbearable?"  His lover-like tone nnd manner thrilled  Norma through and through. She dared  not look round, but sat very still" and  upright, clasping her hands on her knees  and looking solemnly at the fire.'.".':  It wag horribly hard to do what was  right, what was best for him. She was  longing to turn Iter eyes to his to whisper to nim that she was ready, then and  always, to give her life to hun, to ba his  slave, his nurse in sickness, anything to  be near him. But even while these passionate longings filled her heart, her intelligence, quickened in tho service of thc  man she loved, told her that there was  no safety for him or for her but in sueh  semblance of coldness as sho could put  on. The puzzle of Lottie's reax ���������*_arance  must first be cleared up: and before  that, Astley must be himself again, well  enough to bear tho terrible shock in  store for him.  So she maintained, though at great  cost to herself, an attitude of rigidity  and apparent indifference, as she said  deliberately after o. few moments' pause:  "You are always kind, always charming. I should like to stay here longer.  But I've been thinking things over, and  I've decided, if you'll let me, to go to  London and see my mother's lawyers,  and make them understand how I am  placed. I'm sure Iiought to do this, anil  that I ought to have arranged, to go before."  Astley drew back, hurt.  "Oh, of course I shouldn't think of putting any obstacle in1 tho way of your  going to see your lawyer's, or anyone  else. Do you propose to earry out the  programme you had previously ananged  for yourself? Is the East End of London to be your future home?"  She tried to answer, but her voice  broke. He softened immediately, but yet  through the kindfwoids he used it'was  easy to see that he wus offended, puzzled,  suspicious.'     , ���������   '       .  "I  didn't  mean   to  he  unkind.    Of  course ypu aie free to cart/ out-your  ���������intention   if you choose.. It was understood from the fiist that each was to go  his own way, wasn't it?" 1  Norma, fighting against the tears, gave  a sickly little inclination of the head towards the 'glowing fire.'       .   '  "And if I was vain enough 'to fancy  that I,had made such an attractive invalid, had taken my gruel so beautifully, and. swallowed Wharles's poisonous  draughts so gracefully, that you' would  never have the heart to adhere to your  original intention, why, that's my lookout, isn't it?"  A stifled sob was'Norma's only answer. Astley looked at her for a moment, leaning back in his own chair, and  holding up his head in an offended manner, as if he expected her to turn suddenly and make amends. But when she"  did nothing of the kind, but still sut  staring, and persistently turning away  her face, with a stillness of manner  which showed" no intention of relenting  ever so little, he leant abruptly from his  chair, and began to walk up and down  the room. _ 7  Something rose in Norma's heart that  forced her to move, to speak. If her life  had depended upon her, silence, she could  not have let thi3 man, who had saved her  life, who had sacrificed himself, ko she  felt, for her, juice up arrd down, replies'-,  dissatisfied, without giving him so much  as a woid of sympathy or tenderness.  So sl'.e unclasped her hands, and just  said "Oh!" ever so softly below her  breath., But not so low* but that it  caught Astley's eur, nnd brought him  back quickly, glowing, tender, p.issionate,  to her side. Tho next moment he was  upon his knees beside lier low chair, his  "It's true, great Heavens, it's true I'  said he hoarsely.  And with a trembling hand he held  out to her a letter in a woman's handwriting.  "It's from her, from Lottie. There'!  no trick. It's no forgery. Read it, read  it!" stammered he as he threw hirasell  into a chair.  Without a word Norma took the letter, which was short and scrawled in a  rather peculiar band, and, first dashing  her hand across her eyes, which were for  the moment dim and moist, she read  these words:  "Dear Astloy���������-It's all true, and I confess it.

But, earnest as her tone was, clear ns  were her words, Astley persisted in his  attitude of utter disbelief in her story.  "Oh, no, no, it's some trick," said he.  "It's sonic plot laid by that doctor nnd  his precious wife. Oh, I know it is! I'm  sure of it. Only wait till I've come face  to frtco with tlicm, and you'll sec." He  had turned awny for a moment, so angry  that he could scarcely trust himself to  speak. Then lie c.guin faced her, with  his eyes aflame. "They dared introdudo  her into my house, this woman, whoever  sho wns, and let her speak to you! It's  an insult I'll make that cur pny for.   I'll  Norma sprang across the room, and  laid a restraining hnnd upon his arm.  "Listen," she said, "just listen."  But he would not.    He turned upon  her, and went on, as furiously us ever.  "They mado you pay, of course.   Tell  me, you had to pay her something, had  you not?  Ah!   That was what you were  doing out in the orclrardl    Come, you  may as well confess, since I've mode a  good guess."  Reluctantly Norma,acknowledged that  he was rigiit.  "I did give her some money," she admitted,  imploringly, "but she was  not  rude' or cruel to me.    She was gentle,  ashamed of herself.   I felt half sorry for  her, 1 did indeed!"  "Sorry!" cried Astley, "sorry for this  Impostor, this adventuress!"  "I  shouldn't  havo  been  sorry  if  I'd  thought she wns thnt," said Norma, earnestly, "but indeed I'm afraid you won't  think that either   when you come face  to face with her. * Sho wanted to see  you, you know."  "She  said she did,"  retorted  Astley,  obstinately.    "But you'll  find, when  it  comes to the point, the lady will have  disappeared.   Oh, to think you could be  taken in so easily!   Come, kiss me, child,  kiss me; you are my wife, never fear!"  And he flung his arm round her, and,  with  a  loud laugh  which  was  not  as  hearty   as   he   intended   and    believed,  pressed his lips to hers, and told her not  to be afraid.  But through all his almost boisterous  assurances that all would be well, Norma- detected  a vague,  unacknowledged  uneasiness;  and she was not  surprised  when he presently sank into moody silence, and sat back in his chair, with an  air  of   reserve  and  gloomy   foreboding  which contrasted strongly with his first  Tcccption of the news.  She,  on  her  side,  had  by  this  time  grown  so accustomed to the * miserable  position of affairs that she was complete  mistress  of  herself, and  waa  presently  able to steal gently to Astley's side, te  thrust .a loving hand, into his, and to  *try_ to console him for the fresh misery  which, so ahe declared, it was she herself  who had brought upon him.-.   ���������  By this time he was feeling ill and  weak from the strain of "strong emotion,  aeting upon a frame enfeebled by fever  and'by-his premature exertion of the  afternoon. ���������' ,  He began to shiver again, and Norma  was full of fears for him, and. dreaded en  recurrence of the fever that night.  Astley was rather glad of these symptoms, since they gave him a right to her  renewed attentions. When she expressed  her intention of sitting up with-him, he  made but a faint murmur of pio test,  and,she felt comforted in her heart of  hearts at having this excuse for remaining near him.  Ho passed a peaceful night, on the  whole; though he stalled up from time  to time complaining that ho had bad  dreams. And towards morning he slept"  quietly enough for Norma to slip out of  the room and away to her own vast  apartment, where, with tcais in her eyes,  slie began to prepare her things for packing.

Astley pulled himself together, and,  snatching rrp the letter, buttoned it up  in his coal-pocket with nn air of determination.  "I shall go round to the Wharles'  house.* Sho is staying with them, yon  see. I shrill see her, tell her plainly that  I mean to go on with the case against  her, and let her know, nt the same time,  that she will be-provided for.

"And' if���������supposing you eari't prove  anything. \ou know they say you  can't."  "I don't believe it," said he shortly.

"Perhaps 1 shall know better-  when���������when I've seen ilicso people."  * And he turned away abruptly, and  walked towards thc door.  Norma ran .after him, and tried to  smile into his face.  "You are not to trouble'your head  about me," she said gently. "I'm not  unhappy, and nothing they can do will  rnnke me unhappy. Remember that, lt  is for you, you only that I'm concerned  m this matter.   Not for myself.   Really."  Then she ran back again, and he, after  a moment's hesitancy, restrained his inclination to go back to hur, and saying,  in a low voice: "Thanks, thanks, dear,"  he left thc room quickly.  A little later she saw a dog-car!  brought round to thc front door, and  Astley, wrapped up to the eyes, got in  beside the groom, to whom ho loft 'the  driving.  He had lost no time.  ��������� The doctor's houso was in a road ou  the outskirts ef Blackdale, and was a  conventionally fanciful red brick house  of the usual modern suburban type,  standing at tlie corner of a road, with a  little bit of garden-in front, and a little  bit more behind.      '  .  There was, a brass plate on the door,  and there' were 'flower-boxes of rather  showy colors in the windows; and the  lace curtains were pink, and wero arranged in a fashion more eccentric than  tasteful. The whole house 6eemed "to  wean a sort of ostentatious air of being  inhabited by people who thought themselves of moie importance -'than 'their  neighbors, so Astley thought'as he' got  down from tlio dog-cart aud walked up  the garden-path.  He asked for Dr. Wharles, but was  told by the servant that he had started  on his morning tound. Then for Mrs.  Wharles. Yes, the doctor's wifo was al  home, and Astley" was "shown into the  drawing-room, a front room on the right,  furnished in the worst of would-be elegance.  As he entered, the folding doors which  eut the room in half*were hastily shut,  and Astley heard whispering, scuffling,  and then the closing of a door.    '  He caught also the sound of a suppressed laugh, and the anger whicli already possessed him against these in-  tiiguing, greedy people increased tenfold.  He was seized hy an impulse to tear  open the folding-doois and to confront  the giggling women, one of whom, as he  'A DARKTOWN STAR.  6ha Ba*___*d to RIDS Before the Recorder SS  the _-������_t IMclarie  "���������Blandy Matthews Is a Darktown  Btai',** stated the officer when a Crooked  Alley belle's name was called.

And, scarcely uttering the last words  in a voice loud enough to be heard, she  buried her face in her hands, and, leaning against the mantelpiece, sobbed as  if the very springs of life and joy were  broken within her.  Astley stood still for a'moment, misunderstanding her. Was she so modest,  so silly, as to doubt him?   Did she think  not come.   She wns afraid.

Wondering, doubting, uneasy, yet  touched to the quick by her distress, he  drew near to her step by step, until he  was able to lay his hand lightly upon her  shoulder.  The thrill which ran through hex, the  sigh which escaped her lips seemed to be  answer enough to his doubts.  "_vly wife," said he, below his breatk,  "my little wife, look up at me, look up,  I say. Don't you know that even if you  did marry me at a registry oflice you  are bound to obey me?"  ,  His playful tone, which yet did not  hide the 'deep earnestness underneath,  forced from her another cry, more heartbroken than before. Losing her prudence, her dear-bought reticence at one  breath, she raised a flushed and quivering face to his, stammering out amid hei  sods:  "Oh, don't, don't, you break my heart!  though I meant  'max   w-w-wifel  She���������Lottie���������U aBver" "  felt certain that nothing but misery  could come to him through her staying  at Darwen Haigh if the truth of Lottie's  existence in the flesh weie once demonstrated beyond any doubt.  When Dr. Wharles came thnt morning  she" would~have-gone -to~meetrhimj_but"  Astley, who hnd not yet got up, sent  Martin to command, rather than to request her to come to him.  "That fellow Wharles has dared to'  turn up," growled Astley as soon as Norma came to his bedside. "I won't seo  him.   And neither shall vou."  "But���������"  "I'll have no buts. You're to do as I  tell vou.   Do you hear?"  "Yes," said Norma meekly, as she  will-dicw a step or two, white and tremulous. *  "Then you may go," said he.  He wns snappish, peremptory, irritahlo  beyond his it orrt. She went back to her  room, and heard with a fast-beating  heart the wheels of the doctor's gig on  the drive. She had wanted an explanation with him above all tilings, and slie  dreaded the attitude Astley was taking  up.  When she went downstairs, and sat  alone at breakfast in the dreary morning-room .at   the   front   of   the   house,  Wharles,  but her widowed sister, Mrs.  Finch, came in.  Ho bowed coldly to them both.  "Where is Lottie?" he asked abruptly.  "She worr't come," said Mrs. Wlnulcs.  "Sho's afruid of what you would say to  her."  Astley shrugged his shoulders.  "She must ijak that," said he_shortly.  Tdoh't" mean to'leave life house till T~  have seen her."  Mrs. Wharles turned to her sister, who  was a much less showy-looking person  .linn "herself, very well but quietly  dressed, aad of more simple nnd straightforward manners than thc doctor's wife.  . "Emmeline," said Mrs. Wharlcs, "go  and tell her she must-come. Sir Astley  Vsists." Then, ns Mn. finch went out,  sho continued: "You mustn't be surprised  at Lottie's - shyness. She's awfully  aslmmed of herself, and sorry now, for  what sho did.   Did you get her letter?"  "Yes," said he. "But of course forgiveness is out of the question. Unless  someone had suggested it to her, I'm  suro she would never havo conceived it  possible that I could entertain sueh an  idea. Does she consider the frightful position she placed another woman in by  her wicked freak?"

" 'This is inexcusable,' said he, 'when  a man loses golf balls in such a way as  this he either ought to find them or  give up the game for good, lt shows  .very weak character.'  "That last ball had gone Into a pond,  and there seemed to-be something so  ridiculous about the idea of a man  searching a place like that for a ball  that all of us, the doctor, the student  and I, began to laugh.  "The pond was near the end of the  links, and it was a slimy bit of water.  It was Just about wide enough, to get  a ball over it. There might have been  bo trouble provided that were dry land  for that distance, but the shine of the  water always made you pause and wink.  and think, and as a result the ball generally made a gentle little splash,' and  you stood on the bank expressing .your  feelings as beet'you could.  ^"The caddies grinned behind their*  nands as Slimson slowly took off his  ���������variegated stockings and'rolled up his  abbreviated trousers. He was a sight.  The edge-of, the pool was lined .with  black slime, and as Slimeon went'in  he nearly fell, into the pond. Hs  caught himself Just in time, and started at the exploration again. He had  a sapling ln one hand, and he locked  for all the world like an Indian wading a stream to hide his trail.  "He stepped on a tin can and rolled  and pitched like an Atlantic liner ia  heavy seas. The water was above his  knees. He stooped down and plunged  his arm down, to the shoulder.

He lifted up his clinched  fist and broughtvup what looked like a  bit of coal. He washed the black  .thing about ln the water a little, and  there, sure enough, was a golf ball.  " 'Well,' said I, 'I hope that you aro  satisfied. Do you thiult that it paid  for all the trouble?'

Tlje two colonies of Vancouver  Island, constituted in 1S-19, suid ih-itUh  Columbia (first instituted ns Now*  Caledonia on Nov. lOtli, 1S5S). were on  Isov. 19th. I860 united under the name  of the latter. But the present province  did 110c, however, become a part of the  Dominion of Canada until July 20th  3S71, when it joined Confederation as  .the Province of British Columbia. Anil  so. on Monday next, we celebrate the  .thirty-second anniversary of the entrance of this Province into the confederation of the Dominion of Canada.  Those who most opposed this step at  the time have seen the error of their  ways and admit it was a ino..t wi.se  one. Though small in population yet,  its resources very largely lying dormant, the name "British Columbia'* is  'becoming a power in the markets of  the world, and we have reason to be  proud of om- country on the shores of  the Pacific, the brightest gem in the  jewelled casket of Confederation, emblematic of the Dominion of Canada,  th'.* goddess of imperialism lays at lhe  foot of King Edward's throne.  GOLD  MEDALS.  The succesi^fullSHletc^IrTlJest" 1 na 11"  ufacture or- the head of a school i*  usually, awarded a gold medal as the  symbol of .superiority over all competitors. And so, when in 1SI.7 .Sir*  "Wilfrid Laurier was awarded the gold  medal of the Colxlen Club that decoration, by hi.** acceptance, stamped hiin  as one of the apostles of free trade and  gave him an emeritus professor-ship in  the galaxy of political fetish woi-drip-  pe.*, known a.*: the Manchester- School.  But Sir Wilfrid litis sadly fallen from  gfiiee since Diamond Jubilee year and  .Harold Cox, the secretary of the Cob-  den Club, calls the Premier of Canada  to his aid in the light-against Mr.  Chamberlain's programme of. j* rcfer-  'ential trade. ZSTot only this, Mr. Cox  is using Laurier".. speech orr Aug. 10th.  1887. acknowledging the receipt ol  this wonderful medal, as campaign  litei .iture on behalf of the Little I_ng-  landei-.-.  In a recent letter to the London  "Tiures" .Mr. "Cox quoted from Ilie  speech in 'question as; follows:  "I, was a free trader before'I rami  to England. I am still more a free  trader, having seen ..what free trade  has done in England. You have whal  is sometimes, 1 believe, in this coimtrv  termed one-sided free trade; The im  presaion which T have gathered from  what I liuve seen irr -'Europe is that  England Iras nothing to fear for-her  commercial supremacy so long as sin  lias "one-sided free trade." In'Canada  we can do no better than follow the  example thus sefc us. There are partie.**  ���������wiio hope to maintain the British Empire on lines of restricted trade, ll  fie British Empire is to be maintained (  it can only be. upon tlie most absolute  freedom, political and commercial. In  building up this jji-eat Empire, to  deviate fronr tire principle of ii-eeilom  will lie to so much weaken the ties and  the bonds which rrow bind it together.''  and he concluded his letter with the  following rea.*.:*iial>le deductions:  "The Cobden Club adheres to the  views then so ably expressed by its  gold medalist, and therefore is opposing to the best of its ability a scheme  which, H carried into effect, would  certainly wreck the Empire.*'  Bui. the G'ohdeu cltrb has seen  through lire Simiiy Smilor's Iiu le game  and a short time ago issued Leu Hot  _STo. 1211 which slates:  "Bol'or-o giving a pi-eforaioe lo British goods Lire Laurier Ministry wa.s  caiefnl to raise the dirties on col ton  goods largely coming from ('rent, Hri-  tain, while lowering or abolishing tlie  duties on raw materials coming fronr  the United States. Thus the iiitirh-  hoastccl British preference is to a  large extent a delusion. The mor���������(���������  important* branches of American trade  arc encouraged by the Canadian tarilf,  while most branches of British trade  tiro discouraged."  These extracts are not from a Canadian newspaper Ural might be biassed  in its utterances, but from official  documents of the Cobden club. After  this arraignment, if Sir Wilfrid is a  man at ail. he will send back the medal  or-have it melted down into a watch  chain. It is now up (o him to say ���������'!  was mistaken when 1 accepted the  gold medal" or' else get in and help his  associates of the Cobden club in lighting preferential trade.  Brrt he must beware. If he pursue',  the latter course let hiin icmember  that the people of Canada have their  own opinions on the -uibject. They  will stand no more shilly-shallying  when maybe the life of the l-hnpire is  at stake. Let him .speak np like a  man and acknowledge his former  error. His actions as premier have  -liww (1��������� his- adhct-errce -to-Hip Cobden"  club was mer-ely time serving, for not  a step I*,-*.., he taken towards free trade  since a.-sirinrng the reins of power-.  The "Mail and Empire" well points onr,  lh.it "il" we tt Uh I" -.cruic a preference  in the I5iiti.lt market we must undo  Sir- Wilfrid's work in opposition to it.,*'  the truth of w Irich assertion is unequivocally proved by lhe above extr'.iels.  And we cm never hope for'such preference wilh ii Liberal goii-rrinrcni in  power.  ACROSS  CANADA.  lion. A. G. f.lair' talked in his .sleep  when, at the Coast, he drew grand pic-  cures uf a government owned and eon-  trolled railway ,icroi.s Canada. There  was no suggestion of somnambulism  in his speeches I here, but recently in the Tlou.se of Commons he  admitted it was nil n dream nnd that  he had no idea of making a concrete  fact jf his plat form plalil ndes nl. Van  couver. Later ocsurrenecs have certainly proved Ihu tiiith of his Ink-si,  utterance, for the dream of a Government railr-nr.d has been cut in half in  the lirst place and Ihe half iir which .1  slight por tiorr of his 'airy fabric of a  vi-don' remains* will bu handed over 10  the Grand Trunk for at least fifty  yea rs.  The latest result of the deliheralioris  of the mixed pickle government at,  Ottawa, of course assisted by subsidy  hunters, is a contract with thu Grand  Tiimk Pacific   lor the  Dominion to  build a railroad from Moncton, N. B.,  via Quebec, to Winnipeg, and then  hand it over to that company for a  period of fifty years. The company  will, for thc first five, get it rent free;  after that, for live years, for the  profits on local business, iind during  the. ha In nee of tho time will pay a,  rental of 3 per cent.' on the cost of  constructing the roadbed. It is stated  by the "Globe" that "other railway  companies are to he granted running  rights over the Wiriiiipcg-Morictoir  section. 'Phis is to be a matter of  'mutual agreement, and in the event  of I'ailrne to arrive at, a friendly  understanding, the Government will  presort be the terms, subject, of course,  to the rights which tlie. Grand Trunk  P.rcilic possess as lessees and operators  of the line."  Kui-tlreraid has been arranged from  AVinnipeg to tiie Pacific at the rate of  SK-.OOOa. mile for the prairie section  and .S'JU.OOO for- the road thiough the  mountains, this heing the amount  upon which a bond guarantee of '1  per cent, is to be given.  "Without going into the merits or  demerits ol the assistance thus rendered to the new transcontinental  r-oad by the Federal authorities, we  wish to point out that this aid is  certarrfly sufficient to warrant the  constt notion of the road and no raid  upon the Provincial Treasury should  be permittecLtn supplement it. This  is us it should be. The road is one  that will be for the general good of  Canada, and a*** the Dominion authorities have been so liberal, there will be  no excuse for the company asking  anything else. In view of this, there  should Ire no chance of another lobby  similar to that which distinguished  the Canadian Northern proposition,  and the Province will bp s-ived .1  repetition of the attempted steal by  -Mr*. Green-shields,���������K.-G.,��������� a-couple���������uf  years ago.  A.s time goes and event*? prove tbo  wisdom of the course followed by Hon.  T.ichard McBride, then leader of the  opposition, in checkmating one after  another the schemes thai, were brought  forth to give away millions of acres of  public lands to a company that only  existed on paper. I-'uriher than this,  although despite the elTorts of the  opposition a substantial money subsidy was granted, it is very unlikely  that airy steps will he taken under tire  Canadian Northern charter and "even  this financial assistance will i*ot be  culled for.  At a later- date wo hope to go  thoroughly into the character of the  Dominion subsidy lo the Grand Trunk  Pacific, so are content to voice the j  congratulations of tho Province to the  piesent Premier, who, more than  anyone else, stood between the people  and lhe charter monget s and saved a  large portion of our national heritage  from both thc Government and Mr.  Greenshields, both of whom were  showing indecent haste, one to give it  away and the olher to grab it.

The remedy  ^was-.embodied   in   the   Conservative  Iftifdttorm, published   in   many   news-  '" papers in the province,   and   by  that  platform they would abide.   It  was  isimilar.to that on the other side.  ay:  lie  ^proposed  that  the  general   Hailway  f|Act be.so amended as to give Government control of rates  and any   other  M%safeguards   necessary   in   the   public  ^���������...interest  and   then    pass    legislation  ,J.

These  fjjb?*-*!** powers were in thc hands of the  \ul"Dominion Government under Section  fei02 of the B. N. A. Act, and he thought  iJ5J@that, iu view of this, such works must  ���������"V^bo construcled solely by thc Federal  Siauthorities, at leant until such time as  Ssome arrangement could be iirade  'Ktireby the Dominion would enable  cK-works to be carried on either as  -the work of that Government  mutual agreement between tho  the carrying out of whicli  ii_-Qiil������ the Dominion  "{.thing in thu way of,  of lire Pioviiuo but mini' others of  such a character as would warrant a  large expense until soiiiu such agreement wa.s ariived at.  Turning now to Ilie Oriental qui's-  tion, tlie audience knew (bat two of  the minister**., Messrs. Wilson and  tiii'en, were now ill Ottawa endeavouring to have the 1-imrirriou Government  permit tire local Immigration Act to  U'lnain on the statutes. Tliey tiuciit-  erred disallowance upon the ground of  Imperial policy, but it was not llritish  lair play to pel mil Natal and Austial-  nsia to enact such legislation and  refuse il to llritish Columbia. The  delegation expecled to secure the  cudorsatiim of Senator Tcrnpletnan  and all the members irom this lJro\-  ince irr the Dominion House arrd had  great hopes Ibal the idea of llritish  lair play would prevail and the Ad be  allowed lo U'lnain irr force, (Hear,  hear'.) The Government had taken up  the matter carefully and were eel tain  this legislation was within the power  of the Province under the 11. N,_A.  Act and the only ground upon which  disallowance wiim attempted to be  instilled was that of Imperial policy.  ���������J'liey said the Mikado had piohibiled  emigration fiom Japan, but it was  easy to see that such was nol the ease.  .Air.'Kllis, the chief l-hovincial immigration ol.lcei', had reported that  uioie .laps were routing* in now than  ever before and he was sure that this  statement was correct. The fishermen  orr the Fraser weie being deprived ot  their livelihood by Ironies of these  yellow men and irr,my who a few years  ago were able to make a good_ living  fishing lor salmon, wore now forced  to the wall. And, not only this, the  Japanese were invading olhei- departments of industry. In the mills,  tanneries and lumber camps they were  displacing white labour, and yet, in  spite of all this, llu; Government at  Ottawa thr citeiied lo pievent British  Columbia making itselt a white man's  country whore those ot liiitish blood  .ould make a com foi table, honest  living and invite immigration ol the  highest class. The Government weie  now determined to light the matter to  a finish���������the Dominion House was in  session and the tirrre was opportune lo  demand tor British Columbia that  British tail- play which was given  everywhere else wheie the good old  flag "waved in the htcuy.es. (Loud  cheeis). Other matters would be  taken up, such as assistance to the  bridge across the Fiaser , at New  Westminster. The Government at  Ottawa had stated that it was  its policy to give aid of this description  to a private corporation hut not lo a  Provincial Government. And yet the  case of lhe bridge in question was  exactly like that of the bridge across  the St. Lawrence at Quebec, towards  which the Federal authorities had  given every assistance. It was true  the Quebec bridge was being built by  a private company, but both were the  means of bringing transcontinental  railways into the cities concerned and  the ministers now in Ottawa would  pi ess with all their power for adequate  assistance to the structure that would  bring the Great Northern into New  Westminster and 'Vancouver and  double their population iu a very lew  years. The Government at Ottawa  were collecting three or four times as  much per head in taxation from Br.il-  ish Columbia th.ui any other province,  and yet, while they hail money  enough to ' build a railway fiom  Moncton to Winnipeg, thus benefiting  all the older provinces,' they did not  seem to view with favorable eyes the  proposal to assist in constructing this  bridge which would be of great benefit irot only to the Province but also  the great North West Territories.  (Hear, hear.)  This-brought up the subject of better  terms. British Columbia was entitled  to an incre.ised subsidy from the  Dominion. As he had just stated, we  paid three times as much per head in  taxation as any of the other pro\inees  and had paid into the Dominion  Treasury very much more than was  being returned in public works or any  other way. British Columbia only  asked wh.it was just, no _n\ ours, but  what was right, and Messrs. Wilson  and Green, had additional facts to  present in this matter beyond the clear  c.use laid before the Federal Government by the Dunsmuir Government  when ho was n member of the Cabinet.  Money was required for roads, trails  and bridges in this Province more  than any other and although he  believed in exeicising every legitimate  source of revenue by the Provincial  Government, still the people must  agitate and keep on agitating for  lwtter^Jei'ins^ It was not a party  question, but oneoirwhirh-all-cliisses  were as a unit iind eveiylhing should  be done not only by the local authorities but .Senators and Dominion members to sscure this measure or' justice  for British Columbia. If the increased  subsidy w,us not granted now, the  agrlation should Ire continued, and the  people should stand shoulder to  shoulder in the demand for better  terms until thc Governmental Ottawa  gave way and granted them. (Cheers.)  "In conclusion," said Mr.. McBride,  "I wish to insist on the importance of  everyone putting his name on the  voters'list. No matter whether you  are Liberal or Conservative it is your  duty to exercise the franchise. The  Government intends to have a clean,  honest campaign, and have shown no  bias to either party in the selection of  election officials. It is important that  all those entitled to vote are registered.  When appropriations are being considered in supply the number of names  on the list are an important factor. A  member might give the excuse that  there were many more people _ in his  constituency than the voters' list disclosed, but it was hard to so convince  his colleagues."'  The Premier, liefore taking his s?at.  paid a graceful compliment to the late  member Thomas Taylor. Hesaid that  Air. Taylor had been assiduous in his  parliamentary duties and iir his  requisitions to the Chief Commissioner  had overlooked no pail of the riding���������  Mr. J. M. Kellie here interposed with  a denial which the Premier nromply  nn.swored by stating  he could   uuder-  eould easily wiite and obtain copies of  these requisitions trom the Lauds and  Works Department. It Mr. Taylor  leceived the nomination at the convention he would be glad to have him  sitting side by side with him in the  1 louse for he would surely be elected.  (Cheers.) llepoits trom all parts of  tlie province convinced him that the  Conservnti\e party would win in the  coming campaign and have a large  nrajoiily. The light would on his pait  be ((inducted iu a clean and upright  manner: he wanted fair play to all. If  they weie electid the I'linservntivcs  would endeavour to do their duly by  all pints ol* the Province, if not, they  ������������������well' willing to be leleptted to that  '���������oblivion which awaits discarded  "politicians." (Loud and prolonged  applause.)  Mr. C. |-\ landmark wished to ask  the Ptemier a question regarding the  establishment of a lii_;h sdrool in  Kevelstoke and pointed out Hurt there  weie fourteen public schools in Ihe  vicinity fronr which studcnls could be  drawn'and requested a slaicnrent as to  what the Government would do  tow ni ils it. ilr. Mi'llridi* said, in  reply, that if the conditions were, as  lie was informed, the same as those  surrounding the establishment of high  schools at Nelson and Vernon, the  Government would be prepaid! to give  the same measure ol assistance as was  given those cities. This was no favour,  but only what was right. (Hear,  hear.)  The public proi eedings then terminated and aroiisingpartyorg.inizntion  meeting was held, a report of which  appears else when.'. Mr. McBiidc  made hosts ot friends by his straightforward, manly address, and, although  its delivery was somewhat marred by  a slight indisposition, those present  were Healed lo an able exposition of  public affairs by the first native born  piernierol British Columbia.  The Ul-ilAi.n makes no editorial  comment at the piesent time upon the  speech of the Premiers believing it  best Lo let Mr. McBiide's own statements speak for themselves. It is  certain, however, that in respect of  the abolition oi-railway charter  lobbying, demanding fair play in  hrnmgration matters and pressing tor  bett-i* terms trom the Dominion he  will have the heartiest suppoit 1'ioni  all sections of the Province.

Earth-worms have a reason for being ever so much more important than  to serve ;is bait for fishermen. For  all their* lowly estate, few creatures  have done more for mankind. Earthworms arc not merely tire original  ploughmen���������they have brought about  tho condition of the earth's aiirfaea  that makes other ploughing possible  and profitable.  Field crops, for the most part, grow  and feed upon vegetable mould-���������tho  layer of warm Unlit, brackish earth  resting upon the sulisoil. Save by  Knicc of tho earth-worm vegetable  1110I1! would exi*;i only In thoso place:!  where dead leaves ami decaying  growths generally resolved themselves  Into their original elements. Tho  earth-worm, which may ho described  ns an embodied 1  tiling���������animal   111  turd dead ones, twigs, leaf stalks,  small stones and earth. Thc residuum of all ho casts up on tlio  surface at the rate , throughout pastures and garden ground,  of some ten tons a year. Continue tho process a hundred years or  even fifty and many inches of tint.  friable, productive soil result.  lioyond all that, their burrows le.  down light and air from the -subsoil.  Sometimes the burrows run six fefit  deep. In winter the worms hihornato  In roundish chambers at tho bottom.  The chambers are lined with very  email stones or hard, rounded seed.  __ dozen worms sleep together, knotted  into a squirming hall. It is only ia  the winter sleep that they are thus  gregarious. At other times (hoy !_o  in pairs. Though they do not in captivity appear very sensible of either  cold or heat, in Uot, dry weather they  go almost as far down as thoy do la  .Winter.  Eyeless, they have yet a certain perception of light, retreating before it  to their burrows. Vibration also affects them���������hence, say the country  folk, the woodcock's habit of drumming to call them out of the ground.  Their souse of smell is acute, and  by the help of it they find tlieir food,  cither buried or lying upon the surface. As soon as it is found the worms  drag it to the burrow. They burrow  by pressure of their smooth ringed  bodies and by literally eating out tho  earth ahead. The digestive apparatus  includes a crop and gizzard, like those  of birds. After the manner of .birds'  the gizzards arc kept supplied with I  small stones to servo as millstones  in grinding down the food.  The burrows are plastered all round  with   the  finely  chewed    earth,    and  keep shape often long after they   are  untenanted.    From    the    dead    loaves  which make so largo a part.of.' their  food the worms secrete hum tis' acids,  which attack and help to dissolve tho  rocks buried in the soil.      Tims    tho  earthworms not merely transform tho  soil:    chemically     and      mechanically      but     add      to     the      bulk      ot  it      since      soil      of      every      kind  comes    from      tlie    disintegration    of  rocks.;   Further, many loaves dragged  down into the* burrows are only partly oaten  and decaying,  furnish gases  which permeate the soil and react upon its mineral element.  .Earthworms are the best   allies   of  those gentlemen  the antiquaries.      A  coin, an arrow head, a spear point, aa  inscribed slab, a lessclated pavement.  they hurry, surely, safely, to await tha  day of resurrection.    The burying is  done in two ways--by castings spread  above the thing to be buried, aud ".?  undermining tho soi!   oeue-uh.    Eac**.  honeycombed with burrows sings    in  times of heavy rain or frost.   Thus, ir.  course of a thousand years, an object  may be many fee: under tho surface,  yet remain exactly as it fell.    Indeed  the wise men declare the earthworms  In the mass, keep the whole face of tbe  planet iu a state of gradual evolution.

Such a vessel Is likely to "turn turtle*' and go to the bottom within a few  minutes,    whereas    the    wooden   war  ship, though full of water, would float.

'''"tion to tho terrible dangers of iron-  ' chuls was the loss of 1-1. M. S. Captain  In 1S71.   She was a sea going, masted,  turret ship, of ii,900 tons, and was regarded as the finest fighting vessel In  the  llritish  navy.    She  was 320 foot  long, with a beam of 53 feet, a draught  of 25 foot 9._ inches, with a freeboard  of only  C  feet S  inches.    The  turret  urmorwas 13 to IS ..inches thick, and  that on the water Hue 6 to H inches.  She  had an immense sail 8pre_.il on  her three masts, and carried five hun-  <red officers and men.  Ou September ti, 1871, she was manoeuvring in  tlio  Cay of Biscay with  the  British  Channel  squadron,    near  Capo Finisterre.   Under sail, hut witti  steam up, she was rolling at   angles  fronr  12.1*.  to    14 degrees    in    heavy  squalls of wind.   The last seen of her  was at a   quarter   past   one   A.    &).  Some of thc survivors struggled to  Cape Finisterre.    Tliey reported that  the Captain, with steam up but screw  not working, and under three    duhle  reefed topsails,  hogan to roll heavily  and tlien to lurch from side to side at  increasing angles of from IS to 2S degrees.    She filially" rolled to her beam  ends and low   011 her side, her masts  in the water.    The sea rushed down  the funnel onto the furnace fires, and  many of the engineers were scalded to  deala.   As the .Can tain slowly turned  over some of the men walked on her  bottom.     Suddenly   she   sank,   stern  foremost.     Out  of  five  hundred  men  oa board only eighteen survived. Tlio  catastrophe was attributed by the Admiralty to too great top-weights.  The second disaster to an .ironclad  was unattended by loss of life, but it  emphasized the "sinkability" of the  new ships. The British Channel  squadron left Kingstown for Queens-  town on September 1, 1875, when the  Iron Duke, steaming at seven knots,  struck the Vanguard four feet below  her armor on the port quarter abreast  the engine room, making a rent twenty-five foot square, the opening being  into' the two largest compartments In  the ship. One-hour after-tho collision  the Vanguard, which was -heavily  down by the stern, whirled around  two or three times and then sank, after the crew and officers had been  taken off.  Three years later a similar disaster,  occurred to   the   German fleet   when  'DO ANIMALS FEAR.DEATH.

Hero Is a problem which no scientist has over settled, but upon which  French observers have recently,  thrown light.  To assume that tho animal cannot  undorstand death because lie cannot  comprehend tho foolish thlng'3 that  men say about it, is to do him au injustice.  As a matter of fnct, it appears that  animals that do tear death havo  caught this f. ir from human beings  with whom th y havo mistakenly associated, and that tho wilder air animal is the more serene and dignified ij  his attitude toward his own dissolu*  tion.  Compare, for instance, the lion pictured here���������courageous, defiant ia  the faco of death���������arrd tho dog, cow  oring before f _ policeman's pistol.  Most religk * teach that this present life is but an avenue toward ono  most glorious.  Most animals���������with tho exception  of those assured of decent burial in  tho back yard���������havs no reason to  hope for more than prompt extinction  and a slow whitening of their bono:;  under tbo blue of heaven.  From-this tlie relative attitude toward death of men and���������dogs, for instance���������should logically bo the opposite of what it is.  All animals, according to the Frenchmen who have just been studying the  subject, realize when death is    near.  Ravage' beasts actually   "prepare" for  death with a fine composure unshadowed by auy possibility of subsequent  "will contests."     So-called    domestic  animals,  while not showing the fear  characteristic of tlieir    masters,    bo-  come strangely clinging and   dependent and seem to dread separation from  the human beings to whom they an.  attached.  To give definite instances.  Pierre Loti    tells    the    following  story of the death of a young ape, particularly tamed,, which he had mortally wounded.  "As 1 raised it up lt still lived, but  ���������was too feeble pulsation to _ual.e restoration possible. Liko s. dead thing,  1 took it in my areis. Tho littlo  pinched lips trembled and the childlike eyes looked into mine with an unforgettable expression of agony, terror and reproach. Its forehead resting oa my broast, the ape died in tho  confiding attitude of a little, child."  On the other hand, a wild ape,  ���������wounded.by Brehm, a German naturalist, foil to the ground, remained"quietly seated, and wiped away without tho':  least cry the blood which poured  trom its wounds.  "There was,(" says the naturalist.

The    Grosser  , Kurfurst  .was a turret ship of 6,COO tons.  But the most tragic of all these mia*  adventures was the loss of the Victoria flagship of the British Medite.ran-  ean squadron which occurred June 22  _S93.    The fleet was manoeuvring off  Tripoli in two columns, one led by ths  Victoria,  the other by  the    Camper-  -.own.    Admiral  Tryon, on board  tho  Victoria, ordered  thc- two columns to  turn inward at an angle which would  inevitably  bring the leading    vessel:)  into collision.  1     As the Vitoria and Oamperdown ap-  i-proaehfid_.e3.*___D������_i_____^^  j that one would strike the other.

The Irish witness, especially when  belonging to the peasant class, is often  a trial to the counsel, for not only is  he quick at repartee, but his answers!  are often confusing by their quaint-*  ness and whimsicality.  I'n the Bankruptcy court I once  hoard a witness asked the amount o.  liis gross Income.  "Me gross income, Is it?

These witnesses are often confused  through tlio misunderstanding of  words and phrases and as a conss-  quence many a laugh cannot bo sup-  ���������Jirossed, even by the most strict tipstaff.

"There  is nothing left for mo tb do but refuse him. I shall tell him to-night.  Oh, dear, what will everybody ln  Boisville say? What will poor John  say ?"  "Mother, I shall tell John to-night  that I cannot mi *ry him," she said  aloud to her mother; and Mrs. Fenton,  after sewing a little while silently,  then declared, "Well, after all, you do  take alter me In some things, Mary  Alice. That's just what I'd a-done for  my mother. You're not altogether like  the Fentons. You have some of my  ways in you." The woman looked utterly satisfied.  That evening a few minutes after  eight Mrs. Fenton called upstairs to  Mary Alice, "Mary Alice, John hez  came." The girl, who had been rendy  and waiting half an hour, slipped down  to the parlor.  John, a very stout, red-raced young  man, was standing nt a table looking  over the family album. He immediately put down the book upon  Mary Alice's entrance, and walked  over to the black hair-cloth sofa In  one corner and seated himself. Then  he patted a place beside him and  looked over with a playful smile at  the glil. John alwtiys went through  this performance and Mary Alice, always nfter a series ot shy giggles and  blushes, would seat herself beside him  glrrger-Jy and on the very edge of the  sofa. But to-night she stood in the  center of the room and twisted and  twisted into a hard little ball her  handkerchief. Her eyes showed traces  of weeping and her pool- little face  was puckered up with her emotion.  "No, John, I can't, not to-night. And  I want to tell you something. I want  to tell you that���������that���������I want to tell  you that I can't marry you!"  Then she was silent and looked with  frightened eyes at her lover.  John slowly pulled out a great red  cotton bandanna handkerchief' from  his pocket and started to wipe carefully away the beads of perspiration  that had suddenly started out on hi.,  forehead. He looked terribly dazed.  "Why, Mary Alice, what has struck  you? You are just fooling now, aren't  you?"  "No, I am not fooling," Mary Alice  answered. "Do you think I could fool  on such a subject, John? I Just cannot marry you���������I cannot, John."  "State reasons, state reasons." John  eald,  In businesslike tones.  "Well���������well���������oh, John, iny mother  does not want me to get married, at  least not yet," the girl answered, in a  trembling voice.  "For God's sake when does she want  yciu to gel married?" John burst out  "When you are fifty, eh?" He laughed  disagreeably. "I've been coming here  long enough for her to say that before  this )ato day. Are you going to do  what she says?"  "I shall have to do just as mother  wishes," Mary Alice said, in a. thin,  little voice. "I always do. I'm awfully  sorry, John. Indeed, I liked you. I'm  awfully sorry."  John stood up and stuffed his big  bandanna handkerchief Into his pocket. "Well, all I can say is that  you'll be sorry. It Is easy enough for  a man to get a woman, but not so-  easy, for a woman to get a man. I  guess you are about losing your last  chance, Alice. Well, I guess It's not  any of my funeral," and John! tried to  look jauntily indifferent, but failed. Hi-  reached the door and stood there with  his hand on the knob. "You don't think  you might change your mind, 'eh;  Alice?" he asked, and gazed wistfully  at her. "You are old enough to do just  ���������as you please. Why don't you marry  me whether she wants it or not?"  But Mary Alice cried out sharply:  "Oh, I could, not, ,Tc_!.n* l must do as  illy mother wishes."  John opened the door and stepped Into the hall. "Well, I guess you'll regret it all right," he said.  M'ary Alice.leaned toward him and  put a hot little hand on his coat sleeve.  "John, I shall regret it whilst t live.  But I must do it for my mother's sake.  Be sure that I shall always regret it."  "Yes, I think you will.*' John answered. "Well, it's not my funeral," but  he looked as if it was; and then he  ���������backed out of the front door, turned  down the stoop, and walked briskly  away.  Mary Alice stood  where he had left  her, and watched him unt  appeared from view.  Three weeks later, when Mary Alice  reached home one evening from the  factory, she was qui:'"* ristmrnded to  find her mother bustling ahout the  kitchen getting supper ready, attired  in her best black gown���������one never  worn but on Sunday**. But the wonder  of it all was that Mrs. Fenton had a  ribbon of cherry-colored silk twisted  "_:rnra"i'ilfer-'"5ec_-"im  underneath her chin���������h.**r mother who  had not worn a bit of color for ftfu*e.-i  years. Mrs. Fenton's hair, too, was  elaborately frizzed, and stack Into lhe  faded gray knob on the top of her heart  was a tortoise-shell cninli that had he-  longed to maiden days. Mnry Alice was  so surprised she did r:Ot remove her hat  and coat at once, but s.*u down on the  nearest chair, and gazed wide-eyed at  the woman.  "Well, what yer lookin* at?" Mrs.  Fenton said, hoc not ungraciously. She  felt at the bow underneath her chin,  ���������_nd the comb in her hiti.. Then she  .Tttnt over to the mirror hanging above  the table and took a orilic-il survey of  herself, twisting her head about, in all  directions.  "What yer lookin- at?'* she asked  again, when she turned around.  ������������������Why, mother, when*- .are you going?" Mary Alice a...U****i.  "I ain't, goin' a place," her mother  answered.  Then she came up iiulle close to the  girl.  "Mary Alice, guess who's a-com.n  to-r.i-rht to see me. Just, gue-ss." She  lit-r.L over the girl and said slowly, In  most Impressive tones: "Martin  Schwart:.. the hui.cher! He up an' ast  me to-day. when he brung the meat,  to keep cornp'ny with him. Oh, men  is sly, I tell yer." Mrs. Fenton chuckled pleasantly. "Who'd a-thought he  hed his eye on me all the time? But  so he did. Well, Mrs. Schwartz hez  been dead goin' on five years, an' my  man's been gone fifteen, an' wu/.n't  good to me, so I guess nobody kin say  anything. I always believe In not  glvin' any one anything to ������ay. Well,  he's a good man, an' that's all a  woman kin ask or git. I don't think  red looks half bad on me, eh, Alice'."  Mary Alice did not answer her. Sha  took oft her hat and coat and sat down  St the table to supper.    But there was  a, lump ln her throat to prevent her  eating. Mrs. Fenton talked and talked  of Schwartz, the great, fat, vulgar  butcher, and was so preoccupied and  interested ln her own happiness that  she failed to notice the distress of the  girl. Finally Mary Alice got away  from the table, and immediately went  upstairs to her own little room ln the  attic. On a table in one coiner was  Ink, a pen, and some writing paper.  Mary Alice took up a sheet of the note  paper and, dipping her pen in the Ink,  started to write:,  "Dear John ��������� I was all wrong. I  have changed my mind. Please come  back to me. I am not going to give  up everything for mother. She would  not do the same for me.   Dear John���������"  The light wns getting so bad Mary  Alice laid down her pen, and, going  ovor to the one small window, threw  out the shutters. Two were coming  down the village street together. Mary  Alice leaned far out over the window-  sill to watch them, for both seemed  familiar. They came near, and passed.  One was John Mason, and leaning upon  his arm wa.s the prettiest and silliest  girl in the village. Mary Alice pulled  In the shutters again, and taking her  unfinished letter, she tore It into tiny  scraps. Then she threw herself upon  the bed, and buried her wet face In  tho pillow.���������"Everybody's Magazine."  Wit and Wisdom from New Books,  (From the "Era.")

"If there Is so very much law  to be learned in Ohio," remarked  iBalley, "I must advise the Senator to  spend all Ms spare lime there. He  needs It."  A somewhat apocryphal anecdote of  Sir Wilfrid Laurier is going the rounds  of the United States press. During the  last general elections, it Is related, a  Quebec Liberal/whose acquaintance  with Sir Wilfrid was only political,  sent this telegram to his leader, who  was In Ontario on a speech-making  tour: "Report in circulation in thla  county that your children havo not  been'baptized.

We -were sitting on the terrace of an  old French chateau, sipping coffee nnd  smoking? cigarettes. It was a hot  autumn afternoon. The tapestries  of tlie woods were worked ln tho  ���������faded colors of decay; they rustled  with tho sentiment ot the lost,  the past, and. the dead. The  ���������warm sun had raised a wavering  veil of moisture about them, and lri  allowing for its Influence orre was inclined to exaggerate the definition of  leaf-line underneath���������that delicate definition. Incident on the sparseness of  autumn, which charges the smiling  abundance of summer with the first  exquisite thinness of renunciation, to  sharpen later into the hard features of  winter asceticism.  Beneath the tobacco smoke my old  friend's face showed shriveled and  wrinkled .with a like delicacy ot line.  Its sentiment of expression was nlmost  one with the sentiment of this essentially French moment of lhe year. Tl_.  woods were sad, but they were more  happy than sad; with them lt wns thu  time of .dreams, and they were haunted  by the fragile loves of a vanished  spring. The sorrow that was in theni  ���������was plaintive, wistful���������almost a tender  impersonation: theirs was the sentiment of sorrow, its Iridescence and  play, unconscious , of any depth or  darkness of suffering. '  It was forty years since I had met  Louis de Brlssac.    In Paris, as young  men, we had been close friends.   I had  gone over to study in the French capital, and from the very first Louis had  won rrie to him by the charming romance of his friendship for me.   Since  .that time, during the long years in India, men had come near to the fibre and  core of me through mutual danger and  mutual endurance; I had felt the stir  of those silent friendships whose most  open manifestation  Is a firmer handgrip, an understanding eye glance. Beside   these hidden  vital  emotions  the  memories of my Paris friend were as  pale-colored as his autumn woods, but  yet  in   these  far-off   memories   there  was a sweet fragrance which the  ro-  buster attachments lacked.   Louis had  written to me regularly for years and  years: I had whole boxes of letters ln  his fine, pointed handwriting.   He was  expansive,  and  thought no detail ��������� too  trivial for my Interest:  not only was I  familiar with the administration of his  estate down to the minutest particular,  but also'his whole "mental life, with all  its philosophic doubts and conjectures,  was laid open before me.    The letters  were written  with  tlow and  lucidity;  they were full of keen observation and  admirable criticism of life and books.  But partly through lack of time, partly through difficulty oC composition ln  the    French    language,     and    mostly  through  constitutional self-repression,  my replies'wore* 1 fear, somewhat bald  and brief.   Then, during a period of extended travel, I missed several of his  letters,   and,   having  no-.Incentive   to  write to him, I let the correspondence  -emj, '.-   '*,'���������������������������  On my return from India the London  doctors -advised me. to try the waters  at Vichy, and thither I repaired, intending to find out If my old friend  still lived In the neighborhood. On the'  very first evening I came across him  unexpectedly. I had dropped Into, the  Cercle Prive to watch the gambling,  and amid the grasping and repulsive  faces of those present my attention  ���������was attracted by an old man of great  benevolence of aspect. I could not be  mistaken. I knew him at once, in spite  of his white hair and his wrinkles. The  peculiar charm, tlie dash of melancholy  happiness, that had always belonged to  Louis were there still, more marked  than ever. He was playing the game  with a childish pleasure���������staking deliberately, but not high. He had evidently set a limit to his losses, for  presently'he can over, with a pleasant word to a friend or two*, toward  the window where. I was standing.  "Louis!" I said, touching his arm.  He looked at me for a moment quite  ���������blankly. Then his face grew irradiated.  "Richard!" he said, pronouncing the  name French fashion. "It is Richard  ���������my friend Richard Wright! My poor  Richard, but how you have.changed!"  , I smiled. "Well, it Is forty years," I  replied.  "And to meet you here!" he continued. "I always tline here when 1  come to Vichy on business.

"Tell me.  did my last letters make mention of  any h0lil\y of mine?"  I reflected a moment. "A hobby?" I  .repeated, a little puzzled.  "Why, yes: oae must have a hobby-  birds' eggs," said Louis.   "It Is a hob-  1   ���������16=  by full of poetry, -of romance, of sent.-  ���������ment. When I was young, lt took me  out Into the open woods, out ln the  ���������springtime, out ln the early morning.  Every specimen I collected made me  mor*e exquisitely aware of the marvels  of creation, and woke 1n me new wonder for nature's supreme artistry of  color and curve. Have you evor pondered over a bird's egg, Richard���������over  the frail brittleness thnt encloses the  germ of sublime music? As the crinkled  ahell Is characteristic of the crisp  ocean���������as It is thin, tout of Infinite resistance, and shaded mainly with the  yellow and red hues of sand���������so the  bird's egg Is characteristic of the softer  contours of the land, nnd memories of  leaves and skies are blended In the  ereens and blues of its shell."  "That seems to me . . . just a  little fanciful," I protested, "-but to  tell the truth, I have not given the subject any attention."  "I will show you my collection presently," said Louis. "I am arranging  and clrr.sslt.vlng It now. Of course 1 am  too, old to get any more specimens myself, and 1 l'enr to employ the village  lads, lest they should be lacking In  ���������wise discretion. But believe mc, Richard, on the most bitter winter's day  my.birds' eggs are potent to bring lit*  spring vividly before me. Within these  ���������fragile cases, I whisper to myself,  ���������there lives in essence the whole magic  of spring���������its crystal-clear calls,. Its  high and liquid notes, Its Hash of lark  mounting Into tho sky, all Its varieties  of faint fiutterings among new leaves.  I touch my eggs and say. 'Thrush,  finch, wood-dove;' and the pressure ot  woven _iests grows round me, and I  see the green-cradled babyhood of  birds."  "I wonder," I said, "that you ever  found the will to take and blow the  eggs?"  "All," Louis replied, "you nre too  prosaic. I take but one egg of many;  with us scientific interest does not necessarily kill sentiment. And the birds  ���������do not resent it; they have been kind  ���������to me, kind beyond expression. They  have given me a gift. I have told you  ���������this that you maybe In the night mood  .to understand. Come In, now; I will  show you."  Together we went into tlie chateau.  It seemed to me charged with an atmosphere of old-world sentiment, conventionalized by the lines of ancient  perpendicular wall papers, of panels  and parquets of oak���������dim hand-worked  tapestries reproduced within the rapture of autumnal decay. A sombre richness had grown about the greens and  .blues of the threads, like an emergent  shadow; Lhere was the pallor of exhaustion in the blanched yellows and  waning whites. Everywhere huge potpourri of roses reproduced about the  corridors the sentiment of the lost, ths  .past, the dead; giving for the passionate beauty of. June an attenuated  sweetness, grown a little sickly in  heavy confinement. Louis led me up  the slone staircase to n long, bare  room, arranged as a museum, with a  number of cases containing birds' eggs.  It was Inconceivable to me how anyone  could extract a dream of springtime  from so arid a spectacle. Louis drew  me over to a table upon which stood a  casket jeweled with small turquoises:  this he opened with a key. Within lay  a curl of golden hair tied with t*. piece  of faded blue ribbon. .  "She Is with me always," he said  dreamily; "her sunny presence pervades the house; I almost think, at  times, I see her flitting up and down  the staircase. Before, I -was lonely���������  lonely and often .bitter���������.but since' she  came all has been changed."  "Your dead wife," 1 said reverenlly,  for the moment forgetting.  "No, no; I was never married. I told  you that. But I did not tell you why.  There was consumption! In our family.  I consulted a doctor after you left  Paris. ... I did not think I was  justified"���������  I grasped Louis' hand. 'IMy friend,  my .friend, how could I guess at so  deep a tragedy?" I exclaimed, deepiy  moved. Here indeed was courage,  heroism. "I. fancied���������forgive me���������I  fancied 3-ou lfad not known real suffering. My own case... . . I have loved,  .���������too.". '  "But . . ��������� let me finish. I think  you mistake. I never loved . . . in  the flesh," he interrupted hastily.  "That would have been terrible, terri-  We. I could not have conquered a  great passion. I think I-should have  killed myself." He touched the curl. I  "I never saw her," he went on. "I |  found this . . ���������-. just as it is now ��������� .  . .* tied up Willi'blue ribbon . ������������������'. . in  the nest of a bird. That is my romance, Richard���������the whole of my romance."  "Bui���������I don't understand!" I gasped, j  *-!t gave me something tangible to j  build upon���������a lock of hair, brought me  in that tender way by the bill of a j  ^birdfiissociiited-wlth-all-tliat^ls-dear  and beautiful a*nd wonderful to nre. I  think: this bit of sunshine in the soft  moss ot a nest, a golden pillow for wee  feathered things. She would be pretty,  with such hair! She has blue eyes and  gentle'ways; she has changed a little  during* the long years she has been  with me, but always she is young, always she is sweet and lovable, with  golden hair. Her gentle compan!i;r:.<.'.i|i  has grown dearer to me, and dealer:  her voice Is the blended voice of ail  birds, and tho lightness of the birds is  In her step, and their timidity, and  .soft, nestling ways."  ! "But It Is a dream!" I exclaimed.  "Perhaps.    Still,  there Is  lhe  curl,"  he said.   Then he put his hand on my  arm.    "It puzzles you," he continued,  ���������with a whimsical smile.   "No Englishman is like that: you are material, and  must have the substance; you do not  understand that a dream has as actual  j an existence as a reality.   We have the  1 belter, of you,  dear Richard,  In this:  we  have found  one secret of  happiness." ��������� ,'���������     .  "If there had ever really been ai woman," I began.  "I know. This could not have happened," hesaid gravely, "It could'inever  have happened���������ln that easel and I  should have suffered���������like you."  I took up the curl, examining it curiously. At one time I had given some  study to physiology. "But this Is. not  woman's hair," I remarked, without  thought.  Louis grew pale. "Not woman's  h'airl"  Then I realized the mischief I had  done. I cursed myself inwardly that  In a moment of recklessness I had  chattered the whole fabric of his life's  dream. It is, of course, easy enough  to tell from a lock of hair the age and  sex of the owner when it was cut off,  and lt w-as quite evident that this curl  5  liad been taken from the head of a  young child. But why had I not had  the wit to keep the discovery to myself? Why must I burst in with my  crude science upon this delicate, Incomprehensible romance?  "Not woman's hair!" repeated Louis.  "It is the hair of a child���������of a younx  child���������about seven year's old," I said  dully. "Oh, Louis, I should not have  epoken."  He looked dazed, bewildered. The  next moment he was wringing my hand  ecstatically. There were tears ln his  eyes. "Richard, Richard," he cried, "I  -ind never thought of that���������a child I  We pass the time . . . for loving  .women, and sometimes I have felt . .  . lately . . . that an old gray-haired  curmudgeon like myself has no right to  let his fancies run forever on golden-  haired maidens. But a elil'd, a little  girl���������one Is never too old lo love ..  child! It Is what the chateau wants  'beyond all else���������childish laughter, tha  patter of childish feet. Oh, Richard,  think what you have given tne���������a littlo  child, to be with mo always till I die!  It Is good���������It Is good that you came!"  He leaned on me, nlmost overcome.  But I ... I could not understand.  Only In my heart, was a great void���������a  pitiful cry for that childish laugh'...,  the patter of childish feet, which I  should never hear.  It was twilight when we reached the  staircase. The wind was in the tapos-  trles on the walls. They rustled like a  shower of falling leaves. Suddenly  Louis touched my arm. And down at  the bottom of the stairs, amid the fantastic movlngs of the hangings, I  thought for one moment I saw a brief  vision of a little golden-haired child.���������  "Atlantic Monthly."  An Acrostic of Gems.  There was formerly a very pretty-  fashion In ; the. setting of getns  whlch was so quaint that it deserves to be remembered. It consisted.  in so setting the gems of a -wedding  ���������ring that the initial letters of the gems,  read In acrostic style, would give the  name of the bride. Sometimes, when  the names presented difficulties In-  gem-type, they were set up so as to  form a motto on the same plan. The  most Interesting example1*������!! this peculiar fashion is that connected with the  name of -Rachel, the famous actress.  Someone made her a present of a diadem In which were six jewels. The  stones were so set that .when read*  acrostlcally they gave not only the  actress's name, but also the Initial let-  .ters of the principal parts she had  ���������played. Put in proper form and -translated into words, it .was as follows:  Ituby, Roxana,  Amethyst, Amenalde,  C ornellan, C nmllle,  1-1 ermlone,  1_ mllle,  L aodlce.

What she had  failed to realize beforehand was the dif-  .! -Scatty of completing thc undertaking���������a  ��������� difficulty   that   grew   more    and  more  jfUHirUefl with every glance at her unsus-  & pectins* husband.  I|' In order to make the writing of such  ������������������} a, letter even moderately easy, a woman  j* must be either greatly wronged or greftt-  }-i ly in love with another man. Wlien she  ;f began to write, Mrs. Martin was fully  convinced that she possessed both these  requisites. Clever, charming and thor-  i' ������uglily spoiled,  from    her    motherless  V childhood through two years of a child-  .'.leas marriage,'*'-ihe had early learned to  ,  blame anyone, rather than herself, if life  .ailed to meet her brightest expecta-  i itions. Existence was monotonous-  then her marriage was n failure. She  was unhappy���������her husband* iiiiist be at  fault. Mr.'Martin' was not fond of poetry���������blinded hy passion, she had blundered into marriage with a man whose  tastes nnd interests were beneath her.  The situation is not uncommon: given  time and" thc absence of* temptation, it  may right itself, but she was Riven neither the one nor the other. With the first  .Weakening of her inward loyalty toward  her husband, there appeared a man who  Bo .evidently possessed the graces which  "her husband lacked that she forgot to  notice -that he as evidently lacked thc  .virtues which her husband, possessed.  .They dallied along the path of a sentimental friend .hip, meeting first at teas,  ���������which he frequented only to protest hi-  ���������detcstation of them, and "later, and more  often, at her own house.  Mr. Martin. .after meeting him once,  always departed for the club at the  sound of his voice in the hall���������a procedure that Sirs. Martin'outwardly deplored.  "I don't sec _why._you won't ever wait  ond seo Ted," she"complained, one evening, as he was slipping on his coat, preparatory to departure. "lie's so very  congenial to me: in fact, our disposition;  are almost identical."  'I Her husband nodded.  ,f' "As a woman, Alice, you're a dream,"  lie said. "As a man, you'd he a tame  cat. I don't like cats "myself," and he  gently set down the Huffy Angora* kitten  (that was climbing up his trouser-leg.  Ted, coming later, petted the kitten and  tread Shelley, with interludes in which  ie and Mrs. Martin exclaimed over the  ���������remarkable similarity of tlieir tastes.  If Ted Langham had been merely ���������'n  tame cat," the friendship would have  run its course and vanished into nothingness. Unfortunately, he was possessed  of a few masculine ideas, which, instigated by persistent nnd increasing gossip,  suddenly rose up and declared liim to he  desperately, hopelessly in love with Mrs.  ���������Martin. The awful secret remained his  two- days, at the end of which time he  confided It, with remorse and self-eon-  ���������demnation, to Mrs. Martin���������who listened.  HWhen a married woman listens to ari-  other man's love-makintr, the result is  easy to prophesy, provided the man he  persistent. From self-reproaches Ted  ���������,-went to Tegrets, and from regrets to affinities: and the step from discovering  that two people are affinities to proving  that they ought, therefore, to disregard  all the laws of God and man, is not such  Y       a stride when taken in'the path of/sen*  i,    tip-en.alisro.

"  "Yes?" said her husband, not looking  ���������p from his paper.  ft  i  "I���������I got a letter from a girl to-day  that I���������I wan. to ask your advice  about." Mrs. Martin's voice was not so  entirely under control as is fitting for  the voice of at, unusual woman about to  enter on an unusual course of action;  but her husband apparently noticed nothing,, laying down hi. paper with the re-  . gretful air of the man who has left tho  stock market unread.  "Ifm afraid my advice won't do in women's mixes," he said, "but go ahead and  we'll see."  There was a pause. Mrs. Martin hesi  tated, drew a long breath and made tho  plunge.".':   -.���������'*   ...''". '  "You see, she's married. You don't  mind my not telling you her name?"  she ndded, mentally applatrding herself  for the subterfuge.  "Rather you didn't," answered her husband. "What ahout her? She's unhappy, I suppose, or she wouldn't have written you about things."  "V ery unhappy," said Mrs. Mn rtin,  feebly. "Very, very unhappy," she added, more strenuously, feeling that the  occasion demanded the emphasis.  There wns another pause. Mrs. Mar-  ' tin's mind, instead of applying itself to  the matter in hand, persistently lrurkod  back to the dny. when she first met Dick,  nnd ire had told her sho wns the prettiest  .girl-he hnd ever seen- She tried to shivei  ���������at tlie recollection of his bluiilrrcss, and  ���������was struggling  to  compare  it  unfavor  ably with Ted's way of quoting, "If you  were what the roso is," when her husband's voice brought her back from tho  conventional past to the unusual present.  "Is that all?" ho asked, patiently.  "Of course not," snid his wife, moro  energetically. "She's wretched, nnd her  husband and she nre utterly uncongenial,  so she's going to leave hiin���������and sho  wants my ndvico ahout it."  "I sec," snid Mr. Martin.   "Husband's  i brute, I suppose," he added,  tentatively.  "Well, not precisely a brute, you know,  but impossible���������you know the kind."  Mrs. Martin gestured vaguely with a  linrul thru t rem hied in spite of herself.  Noting that hor husband's eyes were on  the gesture, she regretted it, but consoled he ...elf wiili the thought thnt ho  was utterly unobservant���������an idea which  she hnd so' long assumed to he true thnt  she   never  irriostio**(*d   it.  ���������'Knocks her up ('gainst the furniture,  docs he?" queried Mr. .Martin, pushing  liis chair slowly hack out of tho firelight  into the hitlf-durkness.  "Oh, no!" Mrs. Martin's tone implied  that this would havo been a trifle.  "Drinks, then?"  "No���������no, he's all right in those ways!  lie's simply uncongenial. Thoy made a  mistake, and she thinks they'd be better  apart."  "Oh," said Mr. Martin, quietly, "so  there's another man in itl Did she tell  you that, too?"  "She told me all," answered "Mrs. Martin, with dignity, adding, hastily, "all  about it," ns she saw a faint smile on  her husband's face.  He nodded assent, stroking his chin in  a way that meant he was seriously  troubled. Even the clerks in his office  knew that sign, but it conveyed nothing  to. his wife.  "What were you going to advise her?"  he asked at last.  "I thought," answered his wife, "that  I should advise her to leave him. It's  such a mockery, marriage under such  condidons," she added. The argument  was one of Ted's, and had impressed her.  "It's so much more noble to brave thc  world and be free than live a slave to its  opinions."  _ "Well, I'm not so sure," said her husband, meditatively.  Mrs. Martin g-asped.  "Oh, of course," she said, hastily, "l  didn't expect you to agree with me about  it."   ;  She had risen on her elbow in her interest, but she sank back again into the  couch corner, and her husband watched  fondly the little curls and tendrils of her  hair as an enterprising gleam of* firelight  touched them.  "I think most men would not agree  with you," he said, slowly. "It's women  ���������nice women���������who talk about braving  the world's opinions. Men don't believe  in it much. They know .too. much about  it.   It's too hard work, Alice."  He paused, but his wife made no reply,  and after a moment, he went on. "Now,  of course, if this girl's husband was a  brute to her, or didn't support her, or  anything like that, she could leave him  and get a divorce in regular order., I'm  not for divorces myself, though that's u  matter of taste. j_ut if she leaves him  and runs off with another, man, the  world isn't going to say that.she's braving it. It's going lo say that she fell in  love with one man when she was married to another. And the world doesn't  think much of tliat sort of woman."  "Who cares for what the world  thinks?" said his wife, defiantly.  "That's what you women say, again,"  said her husband. "Uut do you realize  what it means to a nice woman?���������-that  the people she likes won't speak to her;  that her friends must be among a set of  people who reully are what she is only  called; and that - she's thrown away  everything but love for a man who didn't  have love enough to keep, her from doing  wrong. Love isn't everything, Alice.  Now, that's tlie world's point of view,"  he added, in a lower-tone. "Then there's  the other. Have you tllought, when  you're advising her to do this, of the  man she's leaving?"  Mrs. Martin moved restlessly. Something in his voice. reminded her of the  old days, when they were first married,  and she had fulled to notice their uncon-  geniality. Life had beerr easy then, and  now it was very complicated���������and she  was very tired. Her eyes filled with  tears, and she buried her face in the pillows of the, sofa, while her husband's  voice went on, quietly.  "It's rather rough on him, yeu know, i  He isn't really a bad sort, I judge. Very  likely he realizes, too, that he isn't 'congenial.' He's probably devoted to her;  thinks all day at the ollice how, if this  Seal goes through, there'll he more money  for her to enjoy; hurries home from the  car at night so that he can dress for  dinner, because that pleases her and  makes her a little more satisfied with  liim. It's probably a sort of heaven to  him just to have her in tho room. Men  are-that-wayryou=know.  thinking it's a mistake? A man's not so  good na a woman thinks him at first,  but 'he's usually better than she thinks  when she's worried. Very likely he loves  her as���������as I do you���������" he clicked a little���������"and, dear, though 1 don't say much  about it, perhaps life without you would  be a thousand times worse than what  I've said.   For I do love you, Alice."  Mrs. Martin hesitated, struggled one  last moment for the unusual thing, and  achieved it.  "The letter I've begun is on the desk,  Diek," sire said. "Will you put it in the  tire, please?"  Dick groped his way through the dusk  to where tho linU-tiitisltcd letter Iny,  picked it up and commited it to tho  flames, face downward. As lie stood flicking the burnt paper to pieces with tho  poker, his wife propped herself on one-  elbow and regarded him critically  "You always were a dear, Dii������k," she  snid. "but I never knew you could talk  so well." ,      .       ���������..,,  "Oh," snid he, without turning, its  all in 3*otir "Brownir.g, somewhere, I believe.

Commenting on thc imperial manifesto  just published,  in   which   thc  C"ir announces his decision  to grant religious  frccdom    to    all    his    subjects    other  than   thoso   of    the   orthodox   faith,  and    to    improve    the    conditions    of  village    life    and    of    the    local    nobility and peasantry, William E. Curtis  says: "Russia has made greater progress  toward civilization and civil and religious liberty during the brief time that.  Nicholas has been  ruling tban  during  the entire reign of any of his predecessors, and it is largely due to the influence  of the Czarina, who was the favorite  granddaughter of Queen Victoria, and is  a wise, Intelligent and tjood woman. During his boyhood, like thc ordinary prince,  Nicholas III. was a very wild fellow, and  when about twenty-one he oontraotcd an  alliance with a Polish dancer, much to  the chagrin and sorrow of his father and  mother.   She was, however, a generous  and sensible  woman,   and  undoubtedly  her influence over the prince imperial was  good.    They   had   three   children,  and  were still  living as  husband  and wife  when Alexander III., the late Czar, went  to his death-bed at the beautiful country  palace near Sehnstopol.      For    Bevernl  years the parents of Nicholas HI. had  been hunting through the courts of Europe for a suitable bride for their son,  and finally selected Alix of Hesse, the  daughter of Alice,  the loveliest of all  Queen Victoria's children, who, as you  may remember, died    from    diphtheria  somo years ngo, which   she  contracted  while nursing her babies when they were  ill  with  that  dreadful    disease.      The  Czarina Dowager, who is a sister of the  Queen of England and the daughter of  .that best ot all living monarchs, King  Christian of Denmark,   had  been very  fond of Alix from childhood, and for several years had been anxious to  bring  ahout her marriage with Nicholas.   The  latter was not only willing but eager to  marry  the. young German, princess, because she was beautiful  in person,, attractive in manner, amiable in disposition, and as much admired as any member of the royal families in Europe. Alix.  however, stubbornly denied his suit.  The  Polish actress made it impossible for hei  to necept the Russian throne, and no arguments or pledges had any effect upon  her.   She declined to accept a husband  who already hnd a;wife and three children," to whom he seemed to be devoted,  even if an imperial crown was offered as  a wedding present.; When Alexander III.  lay dying he sent for Alix to come to hi.  bedside.    What occurred between them  nobody knows, except,.perhaps,'Nicholas  and his mother, but soon after it was announced that a marriage had been arranged and that Alix of Hesse would be  the next Empress of Russia.   Tlie Polish  actress and her children were sent away,  given a beautiful residence on tho shores  of the Black Sea, and she has since married an officer of the army.    Nicholas  and his bride have been as happy and  devoted as anyone could wish.   The only  drawback  to   their  happiness has been  tha Isek of an heir to the throne.   They  have four (laughters, but no sons."  The'Anglo-Saxon Conquest  His voice "fell into silence. Mrs. Martin lajr very still. He hadn't forgotten  what it used to be, then?

"It means that lie comes  home some night, thinking of her*nil the  way���������conies hi and she isn't home;-but  'then she probably hasn't taken pains to  be home early every evening lately.  Then somewhere, on his pincushion perhaps, when he goes to drc_s, there's a  note that says it has all been a mistake,  and she's gone off with a man who understands her." And he has to think oi  the years that have meant a bit of heaven to him as being only 'a mistake' for  her; he has to face that cruel thought  by himself while the servants are getting  the dinner ready.  "After that there's the'divoree court,  and he has to help ruin the reputation I  of the w*man he loves, so that she may  patch things up a. little by marrying the  brute that tempted her.  "And when.it's all over, he'll lock up  the house that held his bit of heaven,  and he'll live mostly at the club, and  wonder, day after day, if the other man  makes her kappy, and hope he does, and  wish, night after night, that he could  flrst kill the other man and then himself. And the worst ef it all, for him,  is that if he'd never, married her she  might always have been good. Hint's  ���������his side of it, Alice."

Well, pnrd-  ncr, 1 meet, mi many iiiimii men along the  trail 1 toilers nil these duly years, uu' I  views so many specimens of refined or-  n'rincss that 1 shore hints it a hard thing  to specify the chief malefactor of lhe  herd. But if you was to set all the citizens of l'crro lllnircu to votin' on tlie  subject, you enn bet your life (Iringo  Pete would win tlie title by a mile.  Perro Blanco's n little mining town on  the edge of the il *jnve Desert. They's  notliin' much there beyond seven saloons  and a botudin'-liouso, "nnd the stage stable with its big corral, lt ain't a big  place, but it makes up in excitement  what it lacks in size. There's never any  ongweo in Perro Blanco. A nr.ui knows  he's livin' every minute that liu's it resident of the entcrprisin* towrr; and if lie  begins to act a.s though he was forgettin'  of it, he's shot up a whole lot to make  him more fervent irr his appreciation of  life in general.  Now it's been a fine, rniiry winter, nnd  we'vo all been busy ns gophers placer-  in' in the little foo'l-hills hack of town.  It's shore been a busy season, arid we  nacherly scoops the go.d dust oul of the  ground. Gringo Pete strikes our camp  early in tire winter, arrd stays plumb  through till spring. He takes a run  back in the mountains occasional, but  he never dwells none definite on them  travels. Ue mention., that he has a rich  claim back in the hills, but lie don't locate 'em, and we has too good a savcy  of mining ethics lb go delvin' into no  mysteries of any gent in Perro Blanco.  We concedes that he has a rioh thing  back there somewhere, and we lets it go  at that. We're too busy, anyway, to take  much interest in any visitin' gent's  dreams of wealth.  It's late in the spring," or maybe early  in the summer, and the water hag nigh  stopped rurmiii'. ; We've all come down  from the diggin's and cashed in our dust  for the season. Not a man that hasn't  enough yaller metal to load a burro, figuratively speakin'. The camp fairly  recks with wealth, and the saloons is  (loin' a business I'.at would make the ordinary man weep .curs'of-happiness with  the lucre obsemn" it.  We'd most forgot Gringo Pete, for he'd  heen away for nearly three weeks; nnd  then we/luul money to buy whiskey with.  so naehcily wc ain't so homesick lor him  as we was. But one day Gringo Peto  eomes into camp���������nobody knows where*  from���������plumb loco, with excitement, lie*  gives it out that -he's struck it rich.  Keg'lar Bl Dorado. Quarts! load tliat'!,  goin' to make the Coinstock look like a  pile of slickin's after n rain. He wants,  to buy for the whole camp and turn the  night into one long, glad irallcluja'li.  Now, bein' placer miners,wc hasn't much  use for 'lmrd-ro'ek mirriri'; but we love.  Gringo l'ete, for we sudden -remembers  What he's done for us all durin' the lliirs  ty season. So we falls in with this exultation of his, arid prepares to drink to  his success in a way that won't lower  the -reputation of Perro IJlancO none in  the eyes of tire world as ���������_. town which  <iair be depended on in a celebration.  So about,dark Gringo Pete rolls out a  cask of licker and taps the same. He  gives it out cold that 'he's goin' to be ull  busted up in his feclirr's if lliey's a drop  left in the mornin'. Then the festivities  begins. I don't know whether that  snake pizen is extra strong or whether  Gringo Pete doctors it some; but I tells  you solemn that before midnight the  whole population of Perro Blanco, from  the bartender to the Red Butte stage-  driver, is luyin' out behind tire saloon,  plumb dead "to the world. I may mention a������ 1 goes along Hint it's three, days  before we gets over tlie said slumber and  comes back to earth again.  Then this���������yere Gringo Pete begins to  show his cusscdncss. ,11c goes but to the  corral, selects two of the fastest broncos  in Uie camp, and puts a sixty-dollar saddle' on one, a pack'saddlc on tlie other,  and stampedes the rest miles away into  the brush. Then he comes back to the  scene of the celebration and proceeds to  gather up every bit of wealth in the  whole outfit. He don't miss notliin'.  Wkeh he gets thr* ugh prospeutin' in tlie  pockets and money-belts of his inebriated  guests there ain't a dollar left in all Perro Blanco! Dutchy Gortner tells me private afterwards that Pete actually pries  his mouth open and purloins the gold  fillin' from his tooth. 1 ain't statin' that  last as a fack. I mentions it merely as  hearsay, and you takes it for what it's  worth. *'.''���������'...  Well, after he has all our wealth in his  saddle-bags Gringo Pete carefully collects all our guns and pucks then', aboard  the second hronk.

But he don't wonder long; for out  steps Gringo l'etc. smilin' nn' guy n*  ever, an' holds n gun (in Dave, while he  finches the rope "good an' safe. Then  Dave finds his tongue, an' the way he  hands out. brimstone an' sulphur lo (iringo l'etc shore makes nut blush to talk  about. But l'etc nin'l lettin' it disturb  liis serenity none, lie's willirr' to let the  other feller cuss, so long ns he has the  winnin' hand fur his share.  "Well, well, my old friend Dave!"  snys Gringo Poti siiiilin' sort of injured  like, "wns you gi irr' to pass right by nn'  never apeak? After all the drinks 1 buys  for you, too?"  But Dave Soule don't have no relish  for tiicm little pleasantries. He grows  more an' moro profane, while Gringo  goes through his pockets an' relieves him  of cveryUring of value. Then Pete tics  Dave's hands good nn' linn, loops the end  of the rinta through Iris belt, an' thinks  a while. Presently he smiles again, as  though he had a beautiful idea. He  walks down the trail a little, and pretty  soon comes back with another rope, He  ties it to the end of the one that's looped  in Dave's belt and throws it over the  telegraph wire. Then he. climbs aboard  of Dave's horse, takes a half-hitch with  the rope around the saddle-horn, digs  iia* spurs into the skate, an' up Dave  goes to the, wire, where he hangs, all  spraddled out like a big Hying lizard,  still cussin' an' foamin' most fluent.  Grimm Pete laughs an' laughs, till he's  so weak he can hardly set in his saddle.  Then he starts up the bronk again an'  rides round an' round the telegraph pole,  till the rope is made good an' fast. Then  he gets oil', ties the end o' the same to  the bottom of the pole, and stands off to  ndmire his hiindiwork.  "Whicli I hangs you up in the breezes  like a flag o' liberty!" grins Gringo Pete.  "I'm shore proud o' my elforts, an goes  my way n-lcavin' of the world to judge  ns to the. merits of the same!" nnd with  thai*, he waves liis hand to Davo Soule an'  gallop off down the sandy trail on  Dave's own horse, leaviu' Dave swnyin'  (rraeeful an' solitary in tire air.  Along about three o'clock in the afternoon Dave ain't conscious any -more. The  sun's shinin' some fierce, an' it's shore,  roastin' poor Davo to a frazzle. His  tongue's hangin' out, all black an' dry,  nn' they's a "husky rattlin' in his throat.  If Dava was awake, he'd,undoubted appreciate a drink c*' water.  Just about that time they's a freight  train comes languishin' along through  the desert.with a load of ore. The train  hands notico Dave daiiglin' in the atmosphere. At first they regards him casual  like, for fchey naehelly infers he's the  remnants o' some vigilance meetin'; but  when they gets, closer tliey notices that  he's .hanged by the waist, and not by  the neck. This excites their eui-iosity  some powerful; an' as they hasn't much  to do: that afternoon, they stops an'  takes him down an' pursues some investigations a .reap. Tliey're surprised a  lot when they find he's alive. So they  rolls bim aboard the caboose an' toots  ahead.  In an hour or so Dave comes to sufficient to know what's happened, un' to  try...to make the train hands understand  by signs what's the. matter.

"Of course," growled Carlyie, "ol  course, and he showed his kniwledgi  about things that you didn't understand  No doubt if you ������*ked BlRckie he'd say  that Gladstone knew nothing about  Greek and the gardener would tell you  that he knew ���������������tfaing whatever of gar^  dening."
