All those interested in  securing the sueces.-. of the affair arc  urgently requested to at!end. The  Mnehini. ts and 1.0.O.K. have already  taken the matter up anil it is probable  that every fraternal society and  trades union irr the city will give u  helping hand. Thero is no reason why  a record breaking attendance should  not be secured. As Labor Day is a  Doirrirriorr holiday nil stores, shops arrd  tilt* brinks will be'closed and an attractive-programme���������will -secure- a-!arge  attendance from outside points.  A Brutal Attack  The l.l.l.M.ln exlends i.s sympathy  to the Kev. Mr. Odder and Mrs. IVtli-  piece who were so unfairly nrrd  brutally attacked Iiy a coward who  signed ii letter in the last issue of the  Koolenay Mail under')he rioin deplume  '���������One who is Thankful." The author  of tlie Idler, however, in the opinion  of a large proportion of lire cilizens of  litis cily, is not so iinieh to blairre as  the editor who published it without  demanding that, if inserted nl nil. it  ire over the signature of the writer-. It  i.s certainly a duty the editoi of ihe  Mail owes to this *:ity to see to it  that the author's name be given and  tin apology from himself for permitting  the letter'to appear without such signature.   __. .*  Living  Canada   Entertainment.  On Thursday and Friday next will  be seen'at the Revelstoke Opera house  the finest series of living pictures ever  presented in Canada. Tlie.views will  be exhibited by the Bioscope Co of  Jioridon, England, and are direct from  the Palace Theatre, London. The  Victoria Colonist-says:  '���������There have been marry bioscope exhibitions in Victoria, in the past few  years, but it can be said without any  1'ear of.contradiction that rro animated  pictures" have been shown here at all  comparable with, those given last night  at the Victoria theatre. The pictures  produced art* life-sized arrd beautifully  clear', without .iny blur or- flickering of  light on the canvas. It i.s an exceptionally Hire show irr every particular:  indeed, so far as bioscopes go. the  animated pictures of "Living Canada,'  togetlrer with the marry other beautiful life-like scenes from other portions  of tin. w iril, stand in a category by  Uicjjiselv.es."  Revelstoke Deserted on Wednesday, the Occasion of the  First Union Sunday School  Picnic���������Everyone Pleased.  The biggest excursion flint ever left  the city hoarded No. 2 yesterday  morning for Albert t'.uiyon, the occasion being lhe lirstanriual union picnic  of tire Kittidny schools in the city.  JOvery youngster in.town was given a  free ri<ie and at leasl three hundred  boys and j_ir-Is today arc thinking with  pleasure of Ihe good time just gone,  lu addition lo the children over three  hundred adults inok irr the excursion,  and all give un.tinted praise to the  commillee iu charge and the ladies  who looked alter lhe wants of the  inner in,in. The Independent hand  was in at tendance and enlivened lire  pi-oi'i-ciliug**. at 1'reipient intervals,  with iiin.sic.il .-.cled ions.  The day was a perfect tare, nnd  there is no need lo enlarge upon thc  runny .iltiaelions of Albert Canyon.  A siun-l. slop was made af (.reeley  cr-eek fo pick up a lew passenger's, and  I hi' train arrived at the Canyon shorl-  iy after len. The children inarched in  a body from the city hall, shurlly be-  for-i. J. o'clock. Rev. C. A. Krocunier  ieading lire procession. Tin- 1-Yesby-  terian -chool banner wa.s the principal  feat lire, outside the happy faces of the  youngsters, who looked forward to a  good day's fun. And they were nol  ilisstipriiiinled. The time until noon was  spent in usual picnic fashion, the min  ci-al spring being reserved for tin  ladies ititi.it two 'o'clock. Many budding Aphrodites look ail van Inge of  the occasion and, although they found  ti mouthful of ihe water rather unpleasant, the iiniipre attraction irr R.  C. of a practically cold mineral spring  received due meed of attention. Afler  two. Tom. Dick and Harry had their  innings at thc bath and enjoyed it  iiiimeri.-ely.  At high noon came lunch. Ample  provision had been made for the occasion, and the ladies had more than  generously ga.igcd even the picnic  appetite of Revelstoke. In i'acl. some  of the small boys, and it may be even  hinted some small girls, did credit to  tlieir ancestors "in ability to 'consume  provisions. It put one in mind of the  old time description of a well dined  alderman:       . _.  '���������His stoiiin.h lilted iroui every di.li;  Tlictonib of boiled unii roit-i, of flesh nnd li .li.  Where pie and pudding, sweet nnd iiridjnr;  And al! liiu man i_ one inlesiiuc war."  Of cmri-.se the ''grown tips" ���������were more  sedate in rrrierr, but they seemed to  enjoy tlieaffair iirevery way. Every  .lack boasting a Jill wa.s along arrd if  the. trees of the leafy glades could only  speak many are the whispered tales of  ardent devotion they would apprise us  of. Beauty in summer attire wa.s there  irr profusion arrd the daintydernoiselles  seemed even.lovelier amid the selling  of mountain and valley, meadow land  and river*, which in picturesque beauty  is a worthy successor uf the forest of  Arden, beloved of Rosalind. But it's  not right to tell tales out of school, so  anxious mammas will never know from  the Hehau. how many Cliloes and  Phylli&es promised to make their  swains happy amid the romantic  scenery of Albert Canyon.  J_ut this did not interest thc kiddies.  They wanted more boisterous excitement, and Irad it. Race after race, of  all kinds and conditions, was arranged  to meet* the varied sprinting of both  boys and girls and it i.s hard to find  today irr the city a youngster who did  irot obtain a prize irr one or the othei-.  After each race a rush was made to  Horace ?,Iannirrg's fruit stand and he  did a most thriving business with the  lucky competitors, and others. To  sum up. all weirt intending to make  the occjisioii-meinoi'iihle-foi'-tlK. children, and, in doing so, somewhat unconsciously succeeded in having the  time of their- life themselves.  10v^ry good thing musi coine to an  end, however1, turd shortly before six  lire whistle of No. 1 Hurt was lo bring  tile excursionists home was heard, and  (prickiy "All aboard" railed llieru into  the cars and tt start wii.iiuaili1 for" ItVv-  elstokc which was reached nbout. seven.  ICverything went oil' liken charm, ami  it is gratifying to know thai the I rue  Christian "spirit, shown in organizing  lire picnic, met ils reward in demonstrating thai,... after, all. dogmatic differences and theological divergence  can be laid ������������������.side for lire time beiirgand  bring all'creeds arrd classes together  in what will certainly become the most  important, annual fixture iir Revelstoke.  'The committee was indefatigable irr  seeing that everyone enjoyed themselves, mid the Heraid voices the  sentiments of the community irr  thanking them for' their hard work  and tendering the heartiest congratrr-  lntions oil its immense success. The  citizens of Albert Canyon also deserve  thanks foi- the large amount of work  tliey did in clearing up the picnic  grounds for the excursionists and  l-.oadinti.stei*.

That such  candidate   will   carry   the   banner to  victory is conceded   on all  sides as the  i-i'volutioiiarv   principles  of Socialism  and    the   factionalism of   the Liberrls  preclude   Ihe   possibility  of   cilherof  lliese parties   succeeding, even if llieir  supporters decide lo put up rneir lo tie  knocked   down   orr.

Heic  they   put themselves    in    communication with one of the disciples of Jesus  ind request an interview with the man  who has created so great a stir in thc  popular mind.  Their ������action may well be regarded  by us as suggesting the cry of an enlightened religious instinct for the-personal Christ.  Mere curiosity may prompt such a  try.  Now, as then, Jesus Christ is the  problem of the ages. He' is a personality that must be explained; a force  tliat must be accounted for. This  wan, whom millions love and no one  bates, thrusts Himself before us in such  * way that life is entirely changed for  *s after we meet Him. "By what au-  ���������Ihority doest thou these things ?." is  ft question we must have answered for  the sake of our own peace    oi mind.  For the Farmer.  Keeping cream after being separated  from the milk works mischief every  time. The sooner cream can be  carried through the necessary changes  after being taken from the milk the  better will be the butter made from  it  Great care is exercised in producing  the famous Cotcntin butter of Normandy, which sells in Paris at $1.25 per  pound. The cows are brushed and kept  very clean, the udders washed and  dried, and the attendants and milkers  keep .themselves clean. The milk is  doubly strained, and the churning i.s  conducted on the best principles. No  odors are allowed to conic in contact  with the milk at any time, and even the  food and water of the cows are carefully inspcclcd.  The food animals consume modifies  the character of their llcsh. Turnips  yield a peculiar flavor to mutton. The]  flavor of mutton from sheep that have  lived upon thc highlands is different  from that of sheep which have obtain* I  cd their food clricily from the lowlands.  The garlic of the meadows and some  fragrant herbs modify the flavor of thc  meat. Oily food lends to make thc  fat soft. Hens partly fed on scraps o(  decayed meat yield eggs that arc al  once unpleasant to the taste and unhealthy. Feeding the animals for human food is then of great importance  and demands experience. It is nol  enough that food makes fat���������it should  also impart an agreeable flavor.  A Fast Electric Road.  ���������What shall I do with Jesus ?" is the  fciquf*f**f of a soui who is confronted  fcy this perplexing personality, this  masterful man. The age of inquiry in  wJrTcTi we live finds its curiosity balllcd  fcy this teacher, whose character defies  human analysis, whose truth transcends  human philosophies and whose influence is more living, more personal.  more powerful in each succeeding age.  Eager to know what God would have  vs do and be. we turn from all else  lo Jesus, in the hope that at last wc  can find an authority upon which wc  can rest.  Appreciation may lead us to Him.  Beyond mere curiosity a soul has conic  lo know enough of Jesus to make him  led that life otters nothing better than  the study of this character and life.  Moral beauties disclose themselves in  such a way as to charm us. We arc  iascinated by His gr.iciousr.cs_. sub-  ���������iued by His tenderness, moved by His  love. We cease to wonder why it is  tha: those who reject Him vie with  those who accept Him in laying their  tribute of admiration at His feet, and  -can understand how it is that even an  Infidel can find the life of Jesus liis  highest theme and greatest satisfaction.  The motive which draws us to Jesus  may be even deeper than these. There  ma}- be a strong personal desire on our  part for Jesus because He has wooed  and won us. We hold Him not at  arms' length: we look not at Him in  tlie spirit of inquiring criticism; we  Ireat Him not as something outside  pf ourselves, but as dearer to us than  til  the  world;  we desire  to take  Him  rto our very lives, to reign there king  ���������f love and life.  In any and every case that which  this religious instinct cries for is a personality. When the church, by those  ������udc methods which it once used, tried  lo convert the world to Christianity, it  fcrought into its fold a mass of Inr-  karous and unspirttu.il'votaries, which  left its impress on church life for a  Ihousand years.

This  defect is caused by an uneven distribution of salt. Take three lots of butter from the same churning, even  where no artificial coloring has been  added, salt one lot at the rate of one-  half ounce, the second at one ounce,  and the third lot at one and a half  ounces, and the color will be so strikingly high in the last lot that it could  not be mixed with thc other lots without showing streaks.  This is no doubt due to the fact  that salt has an affinity for water. The  tendency is for them to run together  and form a solution. When salt is  used the water collects in larger beads,  thus giving the butter ,1 darker shade  of color. Wherever you find light  streaks in butter, you will invariably  find no salt. Therefore, the first consideration in, salting butter is to get  good salt that will dissolve readily. The  butter should not be drained very dry.  It is better to use a little more salt if  it is inclined to wash off some.  Salt should always be put on the  ���������butter in the churn, and the churn revolved a few times to thoroughly incorporate the salt and butter before  putting the rollers in gear, thus retaining as much moisture as  possible.  Allow the butter to stand from fifteen to twenty minutes before working, and then work it until it becomes  waxy in appearance and thc salt ceases  to be gritty. If these precautions arc  observed, there will be no danger of  mottles.���������C. C. Lyon, in American Cultivator.  Skim Milk for Pigs.  I wish to call the attention of dairy  farmers to the high value of skim  milk for furnishing bone material for  the growing pig. One hundred pounds  of milk contain seven-eighths of a  pound of bone material; Nature intended milk for thc young calf; that  is, the cow's milk is for the purpose  of nourishing a calf; now, if you feed  that to the pig there is thc materia! in  that milk which  is  intended    to  build  One frequently reads about trains going  at the rate of one hundred miles an  hour, but few persons hnve ever ridden  at tho rate of over seventy-five or eighty*  miles, says Harper's Weekly. On a  littlo railroad extending: from the suburbs of Berlin to tho Town of Zossen,  an electric car lias been travelling as  fast as 110 miles an hour, breaking the  record for speed on the highways of steel.  It Is what we call a trolley car, but  the trolley systom Is Installed on a very  elaborate scale, and the motive power  which operates tho car ls simply enormous.  The railroad In question  Is only about  sixteen   miles   In   loriRtli.   nnd   wus   built  by the Prussian Government for military  purpose..     Several   months   utto   It   was  turned ovor to 1111 association ot elect rl-  ciil  ciiKlneor-R and   oilier experts for ;ho  purpose of nsccrlaltiiiii. what speed could  bo developed  by the oleclrtc current. At  the works of tho Siemens ,*.

What engineers cull tho three-  phase system of cl-.clrJi.Jty Is ntil|ssed tor  running   the   enr   and   tho   two   trailers  which it has been huuliris during the experiments.    Instead  of the current being  conveyed   by   ono   or   two   wires   to   tho  motor,   it passes  over a  scries  of four,  three of which aro carried along tho sldo  of  the  railroad  upon   posts.    These  are  known as high tension, nnd are capable  of supporting a current  or. no less thnn  12,000 volts, owing to the system of conduction    and    insulation.    Thc    current  passes through the trolley bur, which, ns  ���������will be noted, Is a very elaborate affair,  and thence throne), transformers to the  motor.    The motors nre bolted  upon  the  axles of the trucks beneath the car. each  motor being large enough to run an ordinary factory,  as  It can generate  fully  250  horsepower    under   ordinary    conditions.     Although   these  ponderous   pieces  of machinery weigh no less than four and  n.   half   tons   each,    they   move   at    tho  rate of 900 revolutions to a minute when  a car is at full speed.

It Is very simple,  ns I havo said.   There arc lll'ty-two cards  ln   every  pack,   nnd   Ihey   uro   numbered  from one to ten in spots, and frum cloven  to thirteen in faco cards.   I glvo llio iluvu  face cards tho remaining value abovo len;  that   ls,   tho  jnck   Is   eleven,   tho   queen  twelve and the king tlilrlecn.

But to return to the system.    I  do not know what started me oft on tho  Idea,   but this is what I did:    First arranging the pack'in regular order of suits,  and all tho cards of each suit ln regular  sequence from ace up, I started in to add  thorn   as  they   fell.    If  tho  sum   of  the  thirteen mado 91 I knew that no mistake  had been mode.    If tlie total was something else  I started all over again nnd  worked at it until  it came right.    This  formnl preparation completed, I took the  .whole pack, sequence by sequence,  until  I was ablo to reach  tho correct total of  304 without error.    Then I shuflled each  suit and went nt adding the cards as they  fell In unexpected and disordered sequence  irntil I perfected myself In that advanced  branch.   Then came tho hardest test, tliat  of adding the fifty-two cards, all shuflled  together as this pack Is.    I had mnny a  bad halt hour at that, but nt last I was  so trained that I could deal the shuflled  cards  off as  rapidly as my hands could  fly, and get. through  to  tho total of .101  without a. blunder.    I spent nearly nine  months perfecting myself in Ihat system  of mine, nnd never a word did I say to  anybody   .about   It.      If   my   old   teacher  Is livln,-. yet:I would like to tell her how  I came to be so quick at the figures.   After leaving school   I went to work In  a  bnnlc nnd there I found that my training  with  thc cards stood me  in good stend.  for  with   a   littlo   practice   a   formidable  regiment of figures marching In. fours or  fives would he    attacked    and   captured  without much trouble."  humor of the Hour.  fiGRTKAW FAN5T  A   Real   GTtlemnin.

"So yougot up in '1rc-tr.ee for fear of  eing discovered by Sh* Astley on the  lookout   for   Iris   rabbits?"     said     Dr.  IWharles.  The  lad  began   to  stammer  and  to  remble.  "I didn't do no harm," he said in his  I rough voice. "There's others gets into t'  I wood besides ine."  The doctor instantly changed his tone  j������o one of good-humored kindness.  i "Oh, Sir Astley won't be hard upon  ���������you this once in a way for trespassing.  I As you say, you're not the only offeud-  f-er."  '. .-���������  The doctor had scarcely finished spoak-  [ing when the people began to make way  [for tho baronet, who appeared suddenly  fidesirous of taking* a more prominent  ['���������part in tbe proceedings than he had  done. As he came forward, the miner  i who was on one side of _\ed gave way at  once: tie doctor, however, did not. "  "Don't be flurried, my boy," said Dr.  Wharles in his choery tones, "you know  what you saw, or what you didn't see,  and what you heard'Or didn't hear. Don't  let anyone flurry you."  "Be good enough 'not to prompt the  i toy, Dr. Wharles," said Astley sharply.  All present held their breath.   News of  the  scene between   these  two men had  spread like wildfire  through the neighborhood, and  minv  mil  wild  were thu  N conjectures afloat as to the cause of the  auarxaL   The d_>et___*s usually handsome  . face still bore eloquent witness to  the  resist! of it, . .  "Nobbing wan further from my  theugkU, I assure you, Sir .Astley," said  Dr. Wtuueles, with a bland and* slightly  martyr-like air conducive to a feeling of  from the tree, that the murderer lifted  the 'body up and threw it down again."  "What J"  "SU���������ah! I don't think you'd better  go "back," said she -jureklj-, as Astley.  stopped and turned. "\'ou'U gel. nothing  from him now. Let Mr. 'Capper know.  There'll be an inquest, won't there?"  "Yes, of course."  "Perhaps the truth will come out  then."  "The truth. What h the truth?" said  Astley, his voice sinking till it was a.  low as hers.      '...**'  But that was a question she ivas imt  -prepared to answer. Tliey looked at.  each other furtively in the weak lijrlit������������������'-.  .the one lamp, and..'they saw the ���������snmu  .fear in each'other's ayes.  It was Norma who spoke first.  "Let's go out into'thu fields," sire ...iM,  '"where we earr be quite sure, no one ���������jnn  hear us. Just for a minute. 1 want lc  say something to voir."  So they went back, nnd re-crossed tin-  lane, and went over the stile, irrln Lhe  open ground, where Norma felt, safe frum  being overheard.  "1 want to tell you," she said, "before  we say good-night���������"  "Good-night!" cried ho in consternation. "Aren't yon -going back with mi!  then?"  "Not on any account. And .you .ero  not to ask where I'live, or to uorrie urrd  see me."  "But why shouldn't you stay.at ibe  Haigh?   People will chatter, and ask all  sorts of questions if you'don't come.:back,  ���������and if they*know you're living here!"  Norma made an impatient movement  with 'her hand, in ber impulsive, half foreign fashion.   *  * "What does that matter?   Wouldn't   , ..  they chatter   in any case?

I    Astley waa furious.   The doctor wae  j Indeed making artful use of his wounds  ! to excite sympathy for himself  and an-  ! tagoniam against -the baronet, who was  ! really the most kind-hearted of men.  '���������     It   was   some   seconds   before   Astley  eosfld trust himself to speak.   Then he  ; turned  to   the  people  round  him,  and  j laid, in  m steady and straightforward  j way  that appealed  as strongly  to the  ,' men as the more theatrical manner of  * the doctor did to the women: "I think,  j though you don't know mo very well yet,  ���������ously. "Now I want to tell you not to  be alarmed if the truth doesn't all ec.no  out at the inquest. 'I have an idea that  it wont; I have an idea that* we -shall  be mode to suffer a ������ood deal more before it does. Now wdl you promise me  not to quarrel with Dr. Wharles again,  and no*- to express any suspicion of a'ny-  ���������body���������J"  "You know Bomething?" said Astlej  quickly.  "I don't indeed. 1 know absolutelj  nothing. But���������I believe it's my Italian  blood, I have a fancy that I can plaj  'detective a little, and I tell you J  shouldn't scruple to do it  in a cause 1  you have all seen enough of me to-be    8_ad deeply at heart.'  sure I would never use violence towards  Miy person who didn't thoroughly de-  .earve it."  There was a murmur of assent audible  at once; and the doctor grew rather less  florid as he shrugged his shoulders, still,  however, keeping a showily protecting  hand on the shoulders of the boy who,  truth to tell, was ns solid and sturdy a  young rascal as the county held,* and  \ could havo held his own in a tussle with  \ either of the men.  \ "You got up in the tree to hide from  Ime," said Astley, in a very calm, mea-  Isured voice, and witlioiit airy trace of  Violence; "and what happened aftei  that?"  \ Stubborn silence on <the part of the  boy. .  ___J^'6pt������ik__piit).,l^ic^_sa  bom a little distance.  \ "Don't be afraid," reiterated the doe-  or close to his side.  1 "I dunno what happened after that,"  Bid Ned sullenly.  j "Yo' must ha' seen ssmebody down  ielow. If ,you could see t' squire you  _i_H see other folk," suid lire miner.  "Did you see anybody else?" asked  te doctor, still keeping up that friendly  >ne which contrasted so strongly witli  ie slightly cross-examining manner of  ie others.  "No," said Ned.   "I see nobody 'ceptin-  ���������quire."  | "You mean, perhaps," suggested tin*  fenial doctor, "that you saw .Sir As tli;;.  fhile you were still on the ground. Bui  vben you got up in the tree you were  too high up to distinguish anybody below."^  I "Ay, that's rcght," said Ned.  I Astley laughed* a little, and at thr  sound Br,,jV.harles looked round with  some slight uneasiness, perhaps afraitt  of another attack from the hot-headed  baronet.  "I daxe say," said Astley quietly, "wc  shall get at something more reasonable  from the lad when there's no one beaidi  bim to put tlie words in his mouth."  At that the doctor stood up quickly.  "Do you mean to suggest that I.aim  taking this boy's part, and saving him  from being ' bullied, witb any improper  motive, Sir Astley f' asked he-with fire.  "I only mean," said Astley, us calmly  as before, "that we've not heard ull tke  ' v-uth yet, but-���������that we shall probably  be able to get at it by and by."  t Thero was an uneasy feeling growing  in the group, that resolved itself into an  instinctive withdrawal of.the better sort  among them towards tire door. Something in tiie faces and in the manner of  the two men who were mooting cacli  other eo fiercely eye to eye, seemed to  imply that there was more than a mere  discussion of an exciting affair between  tlrem, that there was some tiling intimate, ���������ome thi rig pcr.oiial in tire matter.  Come, you can tell .me, what do yot  I'jspcct?"  "I can tell you nothing. You woulc  laugh at me. But I want you to be verj  circumspect, and very quiet and���������verj  generous to your wife."  "You are my wife," cried Astley passionately.  "I don't mean nre, though," said Nor  ma   demurely.    "I mean  to���������tho  othei  one."  "But why���������"  "Do as I tell you. And remembet  again aird agaiir, you are not to bc  alarmed whatever "they say, whatevei  they think."  "I wish you'd .explain," said Astley  uneasilv.  But she would not. She called his attention, nt that moment, to a commotion  -'in^tlio-lane-bcliind^Ureru^and^returriinn  tliitlu.'i-, tliey found that the police had  ���������come from Blackdale, nnd with them a  fresh crowd cf sensation-mongers.  The people streamed into the road,  into the plantation. The police went  first, with Dr. Wharles, who had* been  summoned from Raggett's cottage to  explain what indeed there was little  need to explain. Norma and Astley  drawing together under the shelter ol  the hedge that bordered the lane, beside  the stile, heard the doctor's ringing tone-  as he talked. The people.'who had been  in the cottage, and who 'had seen the  body, did not, for the most part, join in  this second expedition into the wood;  they fo lined groups in the lane, discussing tho mysterious affair.  The words of some of these gossip;  reached the ears of Astley and his companion, ns, anxious that the people  should disperse before they themselves  went back into the lane, they waited a  few minutes in silence.near the stile.  "It's a rum thing this, and a bad be*  ginniug for t' new master oop at t*  .Haigh," said one man to another, in a  low voice.  "Ay,"* said his mate, "let's hope as o������  V truth '11 coom out and clear him."  Astley started. Norma held his arm in  her hand like a vice.  The first speaker went on: "I'll no!  believe it easy of t' new master. He's _  nice chap, for all he's a bit violent, as !'.  doctor says."  "T* doctor had proofs of it t' othei  day!" said the second man. "But hi  says hissen as how he doan't think wi  ought, to talk as if we felt suspicion.,  without more proof titan we gotten."  Nomra was trying to draw Astley  away: but he seemed to be rooted to tin  spot. "They suspect me of the murder*!'  he cried hoarsely.  CHAPTER XVIII.  Very gcutly, very sweetly, Norma tried  to  soothe  Astli-y,  and  to  restrain  hiin  irom following tho artful doctor then  and there. "Don't you see," cried tin  unhappy Astley, "that it's this ntscalh  fellow who's been spreading the bclie'i  that it was I who killed this man, tin  very man I've been so anxious to meet?'  "Well, if he has," said Norma persua.  ively, "his talcs will turn against himsell  by and by. People will say that he i_  malicious and revengeful, after your attack upon him, and tliat this is the way  be is trying to satisfy his malice."  But Astley would not be convinced.  "This affair is of too intimate a nature for the truth to be given to the  world," said he, "and the beggar knows  that, and presumes upon it."  "Well then, how can you bring up the  subject now, before all the people?" said  Norma. "You know it's impossible. Thc  doctor would say such things before everybody, that you would not be able to  control your rage and disgust. No, no,  let me persuade you; let me, oh, let me  have the satisfaction of feeling that I  havo done some good, some little good!"  Her plaintive appeal touched Astley  to the neart. Once more he entreated  her to oome back to the Haigh with him,  and when his entreaties failed, he began  to reuroa.h her and to say she did not  care for him.  "Don't you Bee,", urged be, "thrit while  you live in the neighborhood, yet not in  my house, people will ask questions, and  ferret out things? While if you come  back, and live in the same house as you  have done, the gossips will be quiet?"  "Oh, no, they won't," said Norma.  "This affair to-nigb.., this dreadful story,  will bring out more than you think. Ami  then you will find people will see we have  done what is right, what is best. And,  remember, the more of the truth they  learn the stronger the feeling for us will  be. We need not tell anybody anything:  we don't want to parade our grrefs before the world. But since the world  will never be satisfied till it knows the  truth, and since'the truth is that we are  both quite blameless, isn't it better not  to make any pretense, but to face the  facts as'they* are, and wait?"  He let himself be persuaded at last.  But her heart ached for him, as, weary  and worn out, he left her, when the* excitement in the neighborhood had died  down, and tbe body had been carried  away, and went back, through the dark  wood, which had been the scene of such  a terrible tragedy, to his. great, lonely  bouse���������ill and alone.  On the following morning Norma, from  her upper window, saw Dr. Wharles come  up the lane, not iu his gig, but oni foot,  and go quickly into Raggett's house.  Her lundlady., old Mrs. Giles, saw liim  too, and instantly began to gos3ip, with  an old woman's malice, about black-eyed  Nance Raggett and the handsome doctor.  "Is he often at the cottage, then?"  asked Norma.  - "Dear, no, my lady," said Mrs. Giles.  For she' had learnt who Norma was, and  was very proud of her lodger, though  somewhat puzzled by her choice of a  residence. "I've never seen him there  afore. No doubt he noticed ber black  eyes and her saucy ways last tneght; for  she's a bold 'un; not but what there's  something to be said for her, poor thing,  tied to a drunken fellow like Raggett;  which she's his second wife, and no children of ber own, only that gowk of a  . Ned, tbe eon by Raggett's first wife, to  look after. But there, I'm running on,  and I see you don't care for gossip, my  lady; it's not likely a lady of your  quality would."  Norma let her run on,witb ber remarks, but tbe point of interest was  past for ber. This, then, was tbe doctor's first Visit to the cottage, with tlie  exception of bis share in the. visitation  of tbe previous night. She took mental  note of this -fact, and even condescended  to play the -epy from her window, in order to ascertain how long Dr. Wharlcs  stayed there. And bis visit was a very  long one.  It waa on the following day that tbe  inquest was held, and Norma, more dead  than alive, crept, into the town hall by  tbe hour appointed, and sat, trembling  in her place not far from Astley, with  whom, however, she scarcely exchanged *  word. A heterogeneous crowd the witnesses were, .consisting, as they did, oi  Sir Astley of The Haigh, his wife, Dr.  Whnrles, Mrs. Wliarles, the boy Ned  Raggett, an Innkeeper of the town, two  or three of <the townspeople, and a  brother of the dead man. who had come  from a Midland town, and who identified  tha body as that of Thomas Rogerson.  formerly a soldier, but who, according  to this witness, had done no work of  laic.  The brother 'gave evidence tbat he  knew of the proposed visit to Darwen  Haigh, where he .-understood that the deceased man had some business with Sir  Astley Danven; but what Ure nature of  it was he declared be did not know. He  knew of no grudge entertained by tlie  deceased against any mnn or of any  grudge entertained against liim;  *i^^__hernext-=witness=called^was*=No_TnaI  who trembled so pitifully that they gave  her a chair, in which she "sat, limp and  lifeless, her features shrouded by a thick  black veil, the raising of which was suggested by one juryman; though his demand was overruled.  She looked sueh a forlorn little creature in her black dress, with her great  black eyes shining out of a pale face  through the meshes of the veil, that n  good deal of sympathy was aroused for  her. Rumors bad not been wanting as to  the existence of a lady with a better  right than sire had to her title, and the  fact that she was not living at her reputed husband's house was taken as convincing proof that there was something  in the rumore.  The nature of some of tbe questions  put to her was startling in the extreme.  "May I ask, Lady Darwcn, how it was  that you were in the wood that evening,  the evening of tbe murder?" asked the  coroner, respectfully enough, but so unexpectedly that Norma started violently.  She waited a moment before replying*.  "I was in the lane beside the wood,  when I saw a (lash in the darkness, and  then another  flash, and  heard two  reports and  a loud cry.    I got over the  wall and ran through the wood until J  touched  something.with  my   foot, and  found*���������it was���������the body."  "Did you see anyone in tbe wood before  you saw the fla9h?"  "Not at that time," she answered, after a moment's hesitation.  The jurors grew attentive.  "Not at that timet   Do you mean you  had previously seen someone there?'*'  "I had seen someone go into the wood  ���������two people."  "Two people?    How long before was  that?"  "I cant tell exactly.  Some minutes before."  "They passed you in the lanef  "No.    I saw  them  from tbe window  of Mrs. Giles's cottage.".,  "Will you tell us just what you saw?"  "I was at my window when  I saw  someone���������cross the road, from the stile  a little beyond the cottages, and go into  the wood."  "Over the wall?"  Norma's heart nnd her voice sank together.  "No.    Through the gate."  "Through   the  gate!    Is  it a public  way?"  "No.   He unlocked tiro gate and went  through."  "Did you seo who it was?"  "I  thought it was���������Sir  Astley  Darwen," said Norma tremulously.  Here Astley nodded a decisive assent  to the coroner and jury. Thc coroner  went on with his interrogatory:  "And you say you saw a second map?  Did be go through the gate with Sir Astley?"  "No.   He came from the stile, went  up the lane to the right, and got over the  wall into tbe wood."  "When wae this?"  "A few moments later."  "And who was this man?"  "I don't know at all.   He was never  }-ar enough for me to see."  "But you can give us your impression  aa to bis appearance. Was be a tall or  a abort man?"  "Tall, I think. Not particularly short,  I am almost sure."  "Did you ever see thc deceased man in  life?"  "Yes.   Once for a fow moments only."  "Was it he you saw?"  "I really didn't see well enough to be  sure.   If I must give my impression, it  was that the man 1 saw cross the-road  waa a broader-built, stouter man 'than  he."  This answer created  an unfavorable  impression among the jury that Norma  was drawing upon her invention in order  to avoid incriminating Astley.  "But you could not see clearly?"  "NoJ"  "When you came to the body, was  anybody near?"  "I thought not until I cried for help  on bearing a noise above me, and a boy  came down from a tree."  "Was anybody else in sight at that  time?"  "No."  "Did you hear any sound aa if anybody else was near?"  "While I was talking to the boy, I  beard a noise as if someone was getting  over the wall into the road."  "What sort of noise?"   '  "The crocking of branches, and tben a  bound like a drop into the road."  More amiable invention���������thought the  .jury.  "Did you recognize the dead man, Lady.  Darwen?"  "Not till they brought a light."  "What did you do on finding it?"  "I knelt down," said Norma with a  shudder,  "and finding  bis face to  the  ground, I raised his head, and turned bim  .on bis side.   His coat and waistcoat were  open, and there was blood���������" She stopped,  shuddering,   "I knew be was dead," sbe  added at last.  There was a pause, and then a jury-  <man asked, "You say you recognized ths  deceased when    they    brought a light,  your ladyship. You knew the man then?"  "Ob no.   I had sees bim once only?'  "May I ask on what occasion?"  "It was tbe day before.   He called at  ij_he Haigh, and asked for Sir Astley, and  went away on learning he was not at  borne.*"  "I think that is all we bave'to ask  Lady1 Darwen," said tbe -coroner, after a  pause.  And Norma rose in a daaed marmot,  ind slid into an offered seat. .'  The next witness called was tbe lad  'Ned Raggett. He proved an absolutely  impracticable person. He had seen the  (quire in the wood, and nobody else. He  had got into a tree to escape being seen,*  and then be bad beard a pistol-shot. He  was too bigb up to see who fired the  ���������shot, or who was fired at. On befng reminded that it had been reported be said  the murderer raised the body and threw  it down again, be said be must have fancied this; he was sure be wa������_ too far  off to have made anything out-distinctly.  .He gave his evidence witb such, stupid  stolidity tbat most of the listeners  Vhought him too unintelligent not to  i>ive told the truth. '  The next witness was the keeper of an  ���������tin where the deceased bad passed the  tight previous to his death.  This man deposed tbat the deceased  ..*ad said his business in the town was  with Sir Astley Darwen, and he had  bragged that he would be a richer man  when he left Blackdale than when he  went into it.  These statements, which were afterwards confirmed by two or three townspeople, customers, at the iim, who had  spoken with Rogerson, produced u profound .sensation in court. .__aiiy a curious glance wns diicted, after this,'to  the corner where Sir Astley and his wife  sat, both very quiet and downcast, side  by side.

JANUS-FACED GRITS  The Socialist party are outspoken in  their opposition to trades unionism  but the Liberals have shown their  hostility on the statutes. While even  now the latter are straining every  nerve to affect an alliance between  organized labour and Liberalism the  present session of parliament has,  through its Grit 'majority', been the  medium of more anti-union legislation than appeared on the statutes in  the whole previous period since' Confederation. The eighteen years of  Conservative rule never witnessed the  passage of a single Act directed  against trades unions or curtailing  their powers. It has reinniued for the  self styled friends of labour to become  traitrous to their ivorkinen supporters,  who now realize the trap into which  they fell and will endeavor, irr every  possrhle way,-to free themselves.  ���������So critical is the condition of affairs  that the Dominion Trades Congress  has issued a manifesto calling a convention at Brockville on September  22nd. And in this manifesto occur  the following paragraphs:  "The past session of the Dominion  parliament, witnessed the introduction  of legislation of the most oppressive  character, aimed at organized labor.  ..^'he^-two^followiiig^brllsthreafehtlfd"  very existence of trade unionism, and.  rro matter at whose instance they  weii*. introduced, the intent is plain,  namely, to administer a quietus lo the  legitimate aims and effort, of organized labour:���������  CHI H.���������"An Act tu amend the  Criminal Code respecting Offences  connected with Trade and 1. reaches nf  Contract." The object of this bill is to  kill international trade unionism.  Bill S.���������"An Act to amend the  Criminal Code. I.S.r2, respecting l-'iee  l-abonr."' This hill, if passed, will prevent a trade union discussing ordinary  trade matter.-.

What more forcible indictment  could he framed against the Liberal  party of Canada. Tliey used lo denounce the Senate, but have now  packed it with sturdy Grit** arid use  their large majority there fur sounding the death krrell of unionism and  striking at it, root and branch.  Their supporters in Ibis Province aro  now asking the votes of working men  and assume the old pose of friendship  for the labouring classes. But this  forcible indictment from the parliament of unionists will nip that project  in the bud and force those who believe  in trades unions from supporting  either the Socialists or Liberals in the  coining campaign.  And it is rrot only the trades unions.  Even Liberal associations art* rising up  jn amis and condemning the apathy  ^of the Dominion Government.

In many parts of Tennessee, .\rnt-  Ing wildcats is as popular a sport ns  the fox chase. The wildcat ia ns  tricky as tlie fox. He has a stili  more dogged way of sticking to the  thickest cover and the most rugged  ground, and when overtaken will ;jen-  erally  light  till  he  dies.  Some years ago I witnessed a wildcat perform an act of cunning quite  as remarkable as arry I have heard  attributed to the fox. With six other  young men I was eitiirped near tho  tread waters of llu flu lo Creek, not far  from tho Alabnnia line, when we determined to try a wildcat chase, and  for that purpose went to a thickly  wooded strip of country lying between  tho iittffalo and orre of Its tributary  streams. In tho dense woods there nro  occasionally small openings .onneetctl  by a few old roads which wo could  traverse on horscbnrlc. Only at tho  lower end of this strip of woods were  there any caves or holes to which the  wildcats wotrltl be likely to retreat.  Our chase begun on a cloudy, drizzling morning, a c.ipilal time for the  hunt, for In such weather tho game is  easily started and the trail is strong.  Three of our party, including myself  took positions hear the junction of tho  two streams, in tho edge of a 3mall  space that was clear of undergrowth,  but set with tailor trees. The other  four, taking the dogs, went some two  miles up the river to start the same,  which would probably pass near our  position, either to take refrrge In a  neighboring bluff on the river bank,  or as was more likely to dodge the  hounds by winding among the rocks,  and  then doubling on their trail.  We had waited fully two hours v/hen  we heard the distant cry of a hound,  and soon afterward a full chotir.. of  the dogs. They were coming toward  our place of concealment, although as  yet far off. and to judge from their  icry the trail was growing hotter every  'moment. After a run of some twenty  minutes the steady baying was succeeded by a din of short, sharp yelp3,  and then we knew the pack had sighted the game." We kept perfectly quiet  among the bushes, our guns ready for  action and when the hounds v.'ere  about a quarter of a mile distant wo  heard a rustling among the bushes  between us and the dogs, a succession  of light, springing leaps, and then an  enormous . wildcat bounded Into the  clearing.  We should have flred but that our  curiosity was roused by the eccentric  movements of the creature. ' For nn  instant he looked hack in the direction of the hounds, then making several active springs to the left he returned to his trail nnd made as many-  springs to the right. Then turning he  jumped upon the trunk of a leaning  chestnut tree, which, having been  blown down, had been broken off  some forty feet* from the root. Th������  (break was seven or eight feet from  the ground, and the leaning-trunk was  pointing in the direction from which  the hounds were coming.  The cat ran quickly to the upper  end, but instead of leaping off, as we  expected, he scrambled underneath the  trunk, and crawled out upon a broken  limb that projected two or three foet  from the lower side. Here he sat,  close crouched with his short eare  thrown back and his great yellow'eyes  glaring fiercely.  Pretty soon the dogs came up In full  cry on the trail. Three old hounds led  the pack and these were a little pua-  zled when they came to where the cat  had turned aside. The other hounds,  most of them bein?-* young, scattered  over the open place, all the wliile baying lustily, brrt without striking the  trail at all. The le-ders, having made-  several starts in different directions,  finally struck the t*-. il, and were forthwith joined by th*--others.'' Up the  trunk they went with sonorous bay,'  one right after the other.  Under the end of the log on the  broken limb still crunched the wildcat,  motionless as stono. except as he bent  his fierce yellow eyes around him and  moved his short tail slowly from srde  to sida. Only the thickness of the log  was between him and the foremost  hound; still he dltl rrot move, but only  crouched closer to the limb. Ills pursuers patrsed but for a moment on tho  log." and then leaped to the ground in  quick succession, /ifter a Iittl*. confu-  ion in searching for the tr_ll. they  sstartcd=ofr*-at=fiill=-Kppod-on=the-brtck=-  track, and were soon some distance  from the place.

In the first fourteen years of  life the effort should be to tvaln a  child so that he or she may know how-  to pay close attention, ho-.* to learn.  A very few subjects thoroughly mastered are of morS valns than many merely glanced at and superficially discerned.���������Harper's Bazar.  Iio v. to II.m-I Y. Ill,   Drink.  The true object cf legal punishment  Is to eliminate crime by rescuing or  reforming and our punishment should  combine the deterrent and reformatory  elements.  About 26,000 of tbe G2.000 drunks in  the State of Massachusetts belong in  Boston. About half bf them are discharged' after a night, in the station-  house, 7,000 are fined and -..000 suffer  imprisonment. Of the 26,000 only 1,270  go on probation. Thus the best form  of discipline is used least and tho  worst form is used most.  Most of the judges of the municipal  court, the police captains, superintendents and chaplains of the reformatory  and charitable Institutions say th?**  tho most promising field for reducing  the evils ot drunkenness lies in the direction of an extension of the probation system. They agree in emphasizing the value of the personal moral  relationship.  And that is partly an answer to the  question as to whether the State is  properly meeting its responsibility  that goes with its extraordinarily so-  yere treatment of drunkards.  It Is necessary to impress upon  every individual in the community  his personal responsibility for the law  antl its administration. At present we  nre doing for drunkards not what will  reform but what degrades them. I refer to the 11,000 fined or sent to prison  every year.  Tho system of fln<*s violates the fundamental principle of democracy, he-  cause it is no punishment to ths  well-to-do, while it Is a punishment to the poor. The rich  man is able to secure his immediate discharge, while the pour man  has to go to prison for want of tha  money to pay his fine, and there he  associates with the nrost degraded peo-  _pl_!_and^becomes_pemianently^-corrup--=  'd, very likely. j  Often tho only alternative ls that the  wire or children hav������ to be deprived of  the necessaries of life in order to release tlieir bread-winner. It Is the Innocent who are punished by such =  system.���������By Prof.  Kdward Ctrnrnrings.  the  paper  he   read  Aloud:  "This is no shell game. Use tha  famous Bumm Dtitnni Shin Plasters."  | The young man took another pea-  I nut from the left-hand pocket and  cracked that open. Out fell another  fold of paper containing the same advertisement. The Italian's eyes were  nearly popping out of bis head. Tho  young man put on a great show of Indignation.  "This is the worst bunco game that  I ever ran against," he exclaimed.  "Take these peanuts back and keep  them. I don't want the blame things."  ��������� nd with a rapid motion, he extracted  a handful of peanuts from the same  left-hand pocket, ard throwing them  in with the Italian's stock mixed thera  up, and went on his way, leaving the  Italian gesticulating wildly, and making frantic efforts to explain.  This much was witnessed by a reporter, who decided forthwith that Ihe  young man was up to some game, an  impression which was strengthened  when he saw him approach another  peanut vender and go through tho  same performance. So when the  young man went on his way the reporter accosted him and asked him  what the game was. The man was  delightfully frank. Here is what he  said: *  "I get enough fun. out. of this thing  watching the faces of those dagoes to  pay me for doing I'. even if I wasn't  getting good pay. Say, it's the greatest game ever played. You see. it's  this way. I make a living suggesting  ways to advertise to big concerns.  Now the" Bumm Bumm Shin Plaster  company wanted to reach the common  people with advertisements of th.ir  stuff. So they send for me and ask  me for a suggestion. The peanut game  was one that I thought out a long time  ago, but had never put into operation.  The Bumm Bumm people thought It  was alb right and were willing to put  up good money. I had a couple of women open up a bushel of peanuts, fold  up these little circulars, put them inside, and then, by the use of a very  small quantity ot paste of each shell,  put them together again. I sold tho  meat of the nuts to a candy man, and  got more for them than I paid for the  original bushel.  "I took the lot down to the ofllce of  the Bumm Bumm company, and they  were dead stuck on the game.    They  gave me a fat check, and that being  the end of my contract,"I  bobbed upi  with another sugge=:ion.      "You    can  reach a lot of people with those things,  just   scattering    th**m    around: the  street,' I says, 'bu*  I've got a better-  game than that.'    Then  I  told them  that for  .10 a day I would mix those  fake  peanuts   up  with   the  stocks   oS  venders,    so  that    every    man    who  bought peanuts on the, street would be  bound '_i get at leas- one of ours.   Say,  they w'<r# dead stuck on the game, and  we closed at once.    That's all there is  to it.    You've  seen  melat work  and  know how I do it.    Say. but isn't it a  peach of a game?   I bet I've put forty  peanut  stocks   on   tins  bogus  since   I  started out. and I've only been working three days."

Here i: is:  Avoid all starch*- and sweetened  food, all ..cereals,ygggtables contalni ng _  (iugor or starch, socli as peas, beans,  corn, potatoes, -etc. Have your bread  toasted; sprinkle'-it with salt Instead  of butter. Milk is fattening. Hot water is an excellent **'ib.stittite for other  liquids. Add a lit:"e of the juice of  limes or lerrrons to it, If you choose.  Limit your sleeping hours to seven at  tbe outside. No naps. You must take  exercise.  If you cannot walk at least five,  miles a day. and do not wheel, go to  ^ e ot the institutions where mechanical massage is given. Several of my  correspondents report, excellent results  from this r..ethod of getting the vigorous exercise they require. The system is thoroughly wholesome and not  expensive. In red*.ring llesh the ono  fact to recollect is that fat is carbon  ���������oxygen destroys or burns out carbon.  You must consume he carbon by tha  oxygen you take through yonr lungs.

She knew that to strike Into the right  road Zaidee must ere long take the secluded path she was treading. Her sole  aim waa to reach the tiny footbridge  which crossed the narrow river flrst.  And she succeeded. It wae quite  dark���������the fragrant, starry darkness of  a midsummer night���������when she hurried  down the steep ehelvlug bank.  "The planks aro old and ruinous,"  she murmured. "They shook and rattled under my feet as I passed oyer today. Zaidee Raymond _ha.ll come between me and my plighted lover no  more!"  As she crossed, she dellberatly  stooped, tearing up plank after plank  behind her and throwing them into tho  river with a dull, splaefclng sound.  They were not large, but they had heen  twice, nay, three times their size, Bertha Wyman would have torn them  away from the molderlng beans, so supernatural seemed her strength in that  Instant.  "There!" she said, half aloud, pausing to look down Into the peaceful  stream where the planks floated amid  the faint reflection of Innumerable  stars. '.'Long ago, when I was a child,  a man was drowned h������*re. The water  ls deep, and the spot is very lonely."  The next moment she was gone, hurrying madly away, as if some unseen  presence were following close upon her  footsteps.  "You're late to-night, Bertha!"  Paul was looking out for her from  the piazza steps, and came pleasantly  to meet her.  "I know it," she said, putting the  hair away from her forehead, where  the cold dew 6tood out in beads. "It ia  e. long way from Redcote farm, and I���������  I did not walk very fast."  "Come and sit by me. Bertha," said  Paul. "I've got a long story to tell  you."  "What la It?" she asked mechanically.  "It's about  little Zaide   Raymond.  She's not a widow, after all."  ���������"Not a widow?"  "No; and how do you suppose I  found It out? Clifford, my cousin Clifford, wrote to me from India, and he  is her husband. You see, there was.  some misunderstanding, some absurd  quarrel between them before the honeymoon was over.

His face, was fairly radiant with honest pleasure as he looked down into  Bertha's faoe. He did not see the gaze;  her eyes, wide open and dilated, were  fixed on vacancy, and hetr face was  deadly white.  Merciful Heaven! What had she  done in. the wild, unreasoning madness  of her jealousy? Was the blot of Cain  upon her brow?  When she rose the next morning she  looked as if an illness of months had  passed over her head.  "How* 111 you look, dear," said her  aunt, "I'm afraid that walk was too  much for you yesterday. And it's so  strange that Zaidee.did not come home  last  night."  "Strange!" As Bertha closed her  heavy eyes she almost seemed to see  the dead face turned upward among  the water lilies, with its wealth cf jetty-  hair tangled amid their wreathed  stems! Oh, as long as she lived that  white face would he. int her waking or  sleeping hours.  Would it be long before they found  the corpse?

Sang-*-tcr,   in Harper'*  Baxar.  [    THE FIRST CLASS.    |  Bertha started up with a wild, hysteric scream. It was her aunt's voice,  and Zaidee Raymond stood in the  midst of them, with blooming cheeka  and soft, dimpling smilea.  "At Farmer Geary's, to be sure. It  was so dark when I passed there irtst  night that the kind souls insisted on  my staying there with thorn until  morning. And It was a v������ry lucky  thing I did, for when we got to the  bridge this morning we found that, the  thunder showers In the night had  raised tbe stream and washed away  half of those ruinous old planks!"  Bertha Wyman rose and came toward Zaidee, taking her to her bosom  with a strong, tender pressure that tho  young creature scarce understood.  "Oh Zaidee, we were so frightened!  fhank Heaven you are safe once more!  Dearest Zaidee, Paul has told me all,  and I am so glad!"  If ever a woman spoke from the bottom of her heart, Bertha Wyman did  at that moment.  The next week Mrs. Raymond went  out to join her husband in India, and a  month afterward Paul Fordham was  married to Bertha, whose unwonted  gentlence-* and sweetness of demeanor  rather astonitdicd the whole household.  "Something haii changed her very  much," said the good old man. But no  one ever know what that "something"  was that had wrought such an all.orac  tlon in Bertha's character.  "Please Mr. Ray, may I recite ln tho  Srst class ln arithmetic*.  The request wan made by a rather  plain little girl, with a single braid ot  flaxen hair hanging down her back.  Bhe was dressed in a scrupulously  clean, but somewhat faded, cotton  S. wu.  lt was recess, and Master Ray waa  correcting some writing exercises. He  looked up from the paper spread before htm and glanced somewhat quiz-  deal ly over his spectacles at the petitioner.  "Why do you ask. to recite ln the  Brst class?" he asked.  ���������"Because By mother can't send me  to school long, and I want to learn as  fast I can."  "That is commendable, rery commendable," said Master Ray, kindly,  "but Josephine, you have not learned  long division yet, and not knowing  long division you cannot do examples  in the greatest common divisor."  "Yes, please, Master Ray, I can do  them. I heard you explain them thia  doming, and I have done all the examples in to-morrow's lesson but one.*-  "Ah!" said Master Ray, becoming  interested. "So you understand long  division, lot me see how well you can  do the wofk for to-morrow's lesson,  you may find the greatest common divisor of these two numbers," and,  turning to the blackboard, he wrote  196 and 1728 on it  Josephine took the chalk and set' to  irork. Slowly, carefully, without hesi-  lation, and without erasure, she set  iown figure after figure, and in a short  time the example was correctly finished.  "Very well done! Admirably done!"  !_:.laimed Master Ray, who had oritl-  M_Uy watched the progress of the  vork. "You may recite with the flrst  class for a week, begining to-morrow,  ind we will see how well you can get  m."  The Stony Brook school was a small  ���������ountry school and the boys and girls  tad their recess together. When  losephine *__ade her request, no one  mas In the room but herself and the  leacher. But Esther Baker, one of the  arse girls, came in to get something  Irom her desk, Just in time to hear  Aaster Ray's last words.  "Oh, girls, girls!" she cried, as she  ran out into the school yard. "What  lo you think! Master Ray Is going to  ���������et that Fees Tbayer into our class in  irlthmeth.."  .'The idea! That little midget!"  sried Dora Paine indignantly.  "We don't want her, in our class,  ud we won't have her," said Jennie  Srant. ���������'-.'���������  "Why don't she stay with the little  ftrls, where she belongs?" asked Let-  lie Carr.  "I'll tell you what we'll do," said  Bsther Baker. "We will spreaa out  ind take up the whole of our bench,  md then she will have to sit by Will  Rogers on the high seat. Won't she  ���������ook comical then?" and Esther gig*  ;led as she spoke.  "Why don't you say something,  Sophie?" said Jennie Grant. "Don't  fou think it ls provoking?'*  Sophie Ralston was little stouter and  i little slower than her classmates.  ���������Well, really," she drawled, "I don't  mow. If she can get the lessons"-���������  mt just then Master Ray appeared at  ihe door and rang the belL Recess  _*as over.  When the first class in arithmetic  ras called next day, .Icva-phine Thayer  tame timidly down tbe aisle, with her  .ook and slate.  On the low bench the girls arranged  _hemselves as Esther had sugg-isied.  io that there was apparcn-.ly no room  lor another. Josenhin'* pursed hesitatingly at the end of the bene**, and  good-naured Sophie would have xaove-1  ip a little, but Esther, who sat next,  jtoutly resisted the eijott on Sophic^  ���������rartT^Tosephthe, with "a ufejrTJ.u-fir,  ���������ook a seat on the higher bench bfrsids  Will Rogers, the only boy In thc class.  At t%9 sight of her feet dangling down  md not quite touching the floor, thc  girls smiled, and an lrrepre������sible giggle escaped from Esther, but it was instantly checked by a stern glance  from Master Ray, and the recitation  commenced.  First came the example? given out  ���������he day before all the classes had them  .oi-rectly done. Thei* Master Ray explained carefully the use of the table  of prime numbers, an explanation to  which the different members of the  .lass gave varying degrees of atten-  lion. Next followed an example to bo  worked at once, that the teacher  night see how promptly and correctly the members of the class could do  the work. The flrst pupil who finished  the example out "one." The next who  Unished thc example called out "two."  and so on. Dora and Will usually  called "one" and "two," and it was ^o  In this case. Tbe other girls called in  wder, varying from time; Sophie gen*  wally bolng the last. To-day Lettio  railed "three" and immediately after  Josephine sa.id "four." Esther and.  Jennie looked up in Indignant surprise, but Sophie patiently kept on  with her work. When the example  had been finished by all, the work for  the morrow was given out, the class  was dismissed, and recese immediately followed.  An unpleasant ex per.! en co awaited  Josephine. The girls with whom sho  usually played, felt aggrieved at her  ���������Infection. "Ot cour.se," eald Mary  Kay, "Fcony Thayer don't want, to  play with us now that she has gono  into the first class." And little N'.in  lieckott. the smallest    girl  In school.  ���������phtne. wit*, heightened color, walkea  slowly away.  The boys by the brook were working  ���������on a water-wheel. Will was the leader  land tho other boys were following his  directions. The brook waa not so far  oft but what Will saw and heard what  transpired among the girls and he felt  sorry for the forlorn littlo figure apart  irom the rest.  "Say, Feeney," he called out pleasantly, "will you please go into tho  schoolhouse and ask Master Raj* if  ���������he will come out and tell us why this  wheel will not work?"  That was Will Roger's way, and  Josephine turned with a lighter heart  to do the bidding. She felt from his  tone that she had one friend.  Will, like Josephine, was the on.y  child ot a widowed mother. But Josephine's mother lived ln a little cottage  on the outskirts of the village, and  earned a scanty living by doing wash-  tng, scrubbing and  plain   sewiag  for  ier more fortunate neigh boors.   Will's  mother, on the other hand, lived lu a  *lg house on the hill. She led the village society, and ber son would go to  college ln a few years.  Tbe days went by. It was a long  week for Josephine, who went and  came by herself, the other girl's keeping aloof from her. Sophie smiled at  her, but Sophie's dimpled face was so  benignant that lt was hard for her not  to smile. Josephine confided all her  .troubles to her mother, who encouraged her to perseverance in trying to  get the lessons in the flrst class.  "Keep on, dearie," she said; "it will  oome out all right by and by. It must,  ���������for you have done nothing wrong, you  know."  Will Rogers always had a cheery  morning greeting for her, and sometimes a little chat about the arithmetic  'lesson. Master Ray looked on, apparently taking no notioe as day after  day Josephine was forced to perch  'herself on the high bench.  It was the last day of her week ot  .probation. The lesson was a review ot  the week'e work, and examples were  given to be worked at once by  tho  i "You may find," said Master Ray,  "'th* greatest common divisor of 1_'j3  trad 4049." Instantly six pencils were  clicking on six slates. But Josephine,  Slaving drawn the curved lines to begin division, thoughtfully considered  the numbers. She opened her arithmetic and looked at a certain page it'  It  "One," 6he called in a o!.y, low  tone, scarcely louder than the music  of the hurrying pencils. The pencil.,  all stopped. There v/as absolute  eilence. All eyes were lixed on her.  . "Are you sure you have the correct  answer?" asked the teacher.  \ -Yes sir."  "Very well," sa"d Master Ray,, "let  ���������as see who will have the answer  next"  1 It was two minutes, perhaps, before  tWill Rogers called out "two," pres-  iently, followed by a rather dejected  "three" from Dorm. A. few _uinut.3  later and all had completed the work.  "How many* figures did you mak* in  doing the example, Dora?"  . Dora counted.   "Fifty-five, sir."  "And how many figures did yoa  ���������gtake, Josephine?"  "Bight, sir," was the answer.  ������ Josephine was the only one in ths  class who rememhered the explanation  of the use of the table of prime mino-  trers and applied lt.  Master Kay leaned back in his chair.  He rested his elbows on his arms and  Vrought the tips of his fingers and  thumbs together, as he thoughtfully  ���������urveyed the class.  "I have a question to put to you,"  lie said. "Who is the beat scholar in  the class? Your Judgment is usually  good, Dora, who do you say?"  Poor Dora! It was hard for her.  She had held the first place so long,  her seat being the seat that in traditions of Stonybrook School belonged  to the best scholar in the class. She  had often thought that it belonged,  perhaps, to Will, if be had chosen to  claim It And Dora was bright enough  to see instantly the end at which the  teacher was aiming. But she was  equal to the occasion. A smile brightened her pretty face as she answered  j pleasantly:  j "Why, Feeny Thayer, of course,'  ��������� and as she spoke she moved along the  j seat to make room for Josephine to sit  ! above her.

Sprigga, a faithful widower and an officer of the church, quoted to the spinsters of his family, "Judge not that ye  be not Judged."  Tho Rev. Mr. John Draper was all  tbat a congregation could reasonably  demand���������a good, devoted man, too old  for the dangers of youth, too young for  the errors of age. Mrs. Dodge, with her  valuable experience, appreciated the  strong qualities of such a man and  acted accordingly. Her dealings with  the other sex had taught her that the  bu.t way to manage a man was to make  him believe tliat he was the only person  in the world who could do impossible  things. In the fullness of such vanity,  even a minister might forget two previous husbands.

Here  is Miss Corelli's  picture of  the  daily life of the average "wife" who belongs to the smart set:  "She rises languidly from her bed.-'at eleven, and occupies all her time till two o'clock in dressing, mnnucuring, 'transforming* arrd 'massaging.'    She also  receives and sends a  few telegrams.   At two o'clock she goes  out  in   her   carriage  and  lunches  with  some choseri intimates at one or. other  ���������of  the fashionable restaurants.    Lunch  over, she  returns  home  and  lies down  for an hour.   Then she arrays herself in  an  elaborate:��������� tea-gown  and  receives   a  favored few in her-borrdoir, where, over,  a cup  of tea,  she  assists  to  tear  into  piecemeal portions the characters of her  dearest friends. Another 'rest,' arid again  the business of toilet is resumed.   When  en grande tenuc she either goes out to  dinner  or entertains  a  large  party  of  guests at her own  table.    A tete-a-tete  meal with her husband would appear to  her in the light of a positive calamity.  She stays up playing, 'bridge' till two or  three o'clock in the morning and retires  to bed more or less exhausted, and can  only sleep, with the aid of narcotics.: She  1      resumes the same useless existence and  ���������perpetrates  the  same   wicked  waste  of  time again the next day, and every day.  Her children she scarcely sees, and the  management of her house is entirely re-  i- ��������� moved from her hands.   The housekcep*  !     er takes all the accounts to her husband,  who meekly pays the same, and lives for  the  most  part  at  his  club  or  at  the  houses of his various sporting friends.

But this did not cause him  to abandon his intention, and he decided  to fulfil it by learning to draw with his  mouth. In six yeurs from the date of  the accident he had acquired such facility in this extraordinary'method of work  that he could accomplish with ease most  things thnt we do with our hands.

'"What halt did he use?' I asked.  '"Live grasshoppers,' replied the old  man, 'but he didn't impale t'hem. From  his 'head 'he would stoically pluck a hair  ind with-it bind the struggling insect to  the hook. Almost upon bhe instant that  this bait struck the water a fish would  leap for it. After landing him the Indian would calmly repeat the performance of snatching a hair from his head  ind affixing a fresh grasshopper to the  hook.  "T became fascinated,' continued the  narrator.

'.,__.  The Late Dr. Gatling.  The fearful instruments of    destruction   which   modern   warfare   has   developed   have   not   always   been   -the  inventions     of     professional     Boldiers,  but   in   some    cases    have   been    devised by  civilians with a purely  philanthropic intent.   Take the gatling gun for  example, the inventor of which, Dr. 1-ticli-  ard J. Gatling, died in New York the other day, aged eighty-five.   Tire idea of his  destructive  gun was suggested to  him  early in the Civil War by the spectacle  of the  great  number   of  soldiers, sent  ���������home for burial, who had died, not from  bullets, but from disease in the hospitals  It occurred to him thnt there were toe  many men in the service.   He thought il  something   could   be   invented   whereby  one soldier could do the work of a hundred,  the  other  ninety-nine  could stay  at home, and there would be fewer widows and orphans in consequence.   So he  invented a gun which would throw hundreds  of .bullets  by   merely  turning  a  crank.    But though this gun made wai  more destructive, it did not reduce th.  number of soldiers  as he hnd anticipated.   Dr. Gatling, there is reason to believe, sought to mitigate the evil he had  unintentionally wrought by turning his  inventive genius to the arts of peace, and  his last years were spent in perfecting a  new plow he had invented, which, it is  expected,  will  revolutionize  agriculture  on the great farms of the West:    The  plow runs by gasolene motor of sufficient  power to propel  the machine with  the  shares at any depth up to twelve inches  The plow not only plows, hut harrows  rolls and seeds the ground at the same  time, thus saving one-fourth the cost oi  planting,  Bmithers had returned from business,  citeir his dinner und rend half through  Ilie evening paper before he noticed tli.it,  lis wife had scarcely spoken for the prist  .wo hours.

Every mother is responsible to some  extent for the health-of her little ones,  and the prudent mother will always keep  at hand the means for protecting the  health of her children. For this purpose  there is absolutely ho medicine can compare with Baby's Own Tablets. These  Tablets speedily relieve . and, promptly  cure all stomach arid bowel troubles,  break up colds, check simple fevers, prevent croup, and allay the irritation accompanying the cutting of teeth. They  are good for ohildren of all ages from  birth upwards, and nre sold under a  guarantee to contain no opiate or  harmful drug. All mothers who have  used Baby's Own Tablets praise them  and keep them in the house. Mrs. John  Weaver, Blissfield, N.B., says: "I have a  family of six children nnd have used  Baby's Own Tablets and know that they  are the best medicine I have ever used  for my little ones."

He  was already married, with *Wris or that  number of children, nnd it wns evident  that my client had him already in her  eye, for she nearly always said, 'Yes.  that's him!' and gave me details about  him, and said she was sure 'things would  right themselves'���������which, of course, referred to his wife being got rid of somo  how when her husband had gone to  glory."  The Pope's Contemporaries.  Another Fishing Fact.  It was a guest night nt the club, and  from .the gleam in Stretcher's eyes, wo  who krrew him recognized that he was in  that humor when a man can tell a fishing story and actually believe it himself.  It came sooner than we anticipated,  however, owing to a remark dropped by  Fodders during the secoird course.  "Awfully woolly, this fish, don't you  think?"  "It isn't as good ns it might be," replied Stretcher. And then, jumping at  tiro opportunity, he continued: "That reminds me of when I was sheep funning  in Australia, somo years ago���������we hnd  some fish once which were woolly with a  vengeance."  "Worse thim this?" nsked Ftrdders.  "I'll tell you nil about it, nnd then you  can judge for yourself," answered  Stretcher. "I wns fanning a few thousand acres of the low hinds which wore  watered by the Brirrirmudgee Itiver, and  wns doing remarkably well. In fact, 1  should lruve mmle n fortune there if the  infernal river hnd not taken it into its  head to flood just about the lninbing season.  "Nearly all my grnss-lnird was covered  with wnter, nnd for weeks we didn't sec  anything of our largest flock of sheep,  and naturally enough camo to the conclusion that they were all destroyed.  "One day the hend-shep'lrcrd and I  went out in a little punt that we'd  knocked together, just to have a look  round, and see if we oould catch some  fish���������for the.hands at the station began  to want a change.of diet.  "We caught a lot of blue fish and some  bass, and* then I got a bite that nearly  jerked me out of the boat; but John,  the shepherd, lent me a hand, and between us we pulled the beggar in���������and  he was the strangest looking fish that  ever I'd seen.  "However, there was a lot of him, and  so we made our way back to the station,  pleased at having done so well.  "I needn't tell you that* out in the  back settlements, down below there, we  didn't use to go in much for cooking.  Our chef at that time was a native called  Wagga, to whom we handed over our  catch, with instructions to clean, and  bake them in  the ashes.  "Later on the meal was served up,  and, of course, everyone wanted to have  a bit of the big fellow, so I served him  out accordingly. But before I'd helped  half a dozen, I noticed that something  was wrong.  "'What's the matter, boys?' I enquired.  "'Well, boss,' answered old Steb, T've  heard of woolly fish afore, but I'm  blamed if I ever come across anything  like this. Looke here!' And he held  out on his fork a large piece of wooll  "There was no mistaking it; so I set  to work to inspect the remainder of our  b:y-*flsh, and I found that just inside Uie  outer layer of scales it had a layer of  wool for all the world like a sheep.  "Of course I began to suspect the  truth then���������and, to cut a long story  short, we found that the lambs that  had just been born when the river-flooded had adjusted themselves to circum*.  stances.   ,  "They'd grown fins instead of legs,  gills in place of lungs, and had acquired,  an outside skin of scales.  "There hadn't been time for the wool  to disappear altogether, but no doubt  that would have happened in a, few generations���������only, when the floods went  down, of course their environment altered again, and they had to change back  once more. ��������� J  "No, I can't say that they were a success, for, as fish, they were very tallowy;  and afterwards, when they resumed their  proper shape, there was always, a hcr-  ringy flavor about the mutton."  A Moonlight Pastel.  The moonlight fell full upon the green,  sward of the park at Palm Beach. The  greensward was soft, however, und. ths  moonlight sustained no serious injuries.  Two figures might have been seen Kitting  in a secluded nook. They were economizing space in a painfully evident manner. The voice of the youth rose nn_  fell to tho music of the sea, and finally  staggered to its feet nnd remarked:  "Winsome damsel, I om in love. I  hnve arrived nt this conclusion not hastily, but after careful introspection and  experimentation. Since first I met. you  I have been troubled, my most alarming  symptom being an aching void. To-night  tiro throbbing of that vacuum has been  so strong that 1 have been able to locate  it in my heart."  The voice of the youth choked with  mingled emotion and tobacco, both of  which ho had been swallowing right  along. Spreading u handkerchief ti|>on  the ground, he fell upon his knees, severing in his imp_.iio.ity the lust bond of  connection between his suspenders and  his sky-blue trousers.  "Oh, fairest of maids!" he pleaded,  "enter now into that emptiness nrrd fill  it with thy light and lavender perfume."  The fairest of maid., smiled sadly und  abruptly. Her face wore tlrut fur-away  expression so characteristic of Pike's  Peak. Her mind was wandering down  the dim corridors of memory and had  far to go. Her silence hnd the delicate  odor of pepsin gum. 'Hie youth pressed  her for an answer until his arm ached  with the exertion.  Finally, after consulting her notebook,  she made reply:  "At present I am heart-free. However,  Jimmy Brown is scheduled for two weeks  from next Monday; until then I am  thine."  As the fateful words fell from her lips  the youth caught them before they hit  the ground and pressed them to his  bosom. Tire maid leaned over and planted a kiss on his youthful brow, coyly removing her teeth as she did so.  After regulating their hearts so as to  run neck and neck, and combining their  thoughts into one idea, they wandered  out into the cold, unfeeling world, and  naught could be heard in -the'palm*'  punctured atmosphere save the strident  bazoo of the dyspeptic toy alligator.���������  "Judge." ���������*...-;  nSH^TiWitat.ons.

Tin*.-, time swords  and long hows are not the implements  of vengeance, but the pens of authors.  Nob long ago the publication of "The Unspeakable Scot" aroused much resentment among the dwellers in Caledonia  by its unjust: criticism of the Scotch  people. A counter-thrust has now appeared from the' peri of Angus McNeill,  entitled "The Egregious English." This  is made up of scathing irony,) sarcasm,  criticism, and hypercriticism, directed  against the English people and some of  ,their customs and institutions.  In brief, Ml*. McNeill says England is  decadent.   Heririen of business are* "Willie  boys;"  her  journalists  are  tied   to  apron-strings; her employed men are servile slaves; her women1 are as homely as  Don Quixote's duenna, and with no redeeming qualities of mind; her army is  weighted down with  commissioned officers, knowing well how to climb the social  ladder,  hut  understanding nothing  "and caring as much about how to scale  a, kopje^  iice sJtrsy  nre  deba-ied creatures, dishing up to a" gluttonous public  pabulum   containing   no   ingredients   of  true  religion  or etnr'cs;  her  politicians  are  wire-pullers;   her   poets   died   long  ago;: and her fictiori writers nre skilled  only in glossing oyer the vulgar and presenting the manufacture to an urrdiscern-  ing public   And so on through the list  of subjects to the last, "The Beloved"���������  the Englishman  abroad���������well  described  in the irony of the author as follows:  "He drops fatness and blessings as he  walks.
