On  Saturday Ins. the fourth gold'brick  from t.he Northwestern Development,  Co's proper-ties wns brought to the  city hy Manager Frank Blackwell and  this output fully Sustains, by its size,  the values of the free gold (pmrt*/. of  these important mines. The brick  weighed U lbs. il oz., troy, and was  worth in the vicinity of $2<i0(). This  bullion was the result of 18 twelve-  hour' shifts of a 111.II run arrd, as there  are nbout 7 torrs put through to,the  shift means the result, of milling 12(i  torrs of ore. The average value was  therefore slightly over $20 to the ton,  .which is a highly satisfactory showing.  The mill started again yesterday arrd  will be in continuous operation from  nowon unless dosed for a clean up.  (iOAT  MOUNTAIN.  Recent developments ill this vicinty  have proved that another' mineral belt  i.s tributary to Goldfield.-.. Goat M01111  tain, about 10 miles north east, has  been extensively prospected this season and excellent finds reported. On  the Scout, group, live claims owned  by ('corgi. .Johnson and others, two  line iends ol" 15 and 20 feet respectively  have heen uncovered mimI a tunnel 00  feet in length, driven on the carbonate  vein. Assays of this ore have been  taken arrd run 00 lo 05 p.c lead, 70 oz.  silver and SIU to *._:_ in gold. The  country rock and vein matter- air very  similar lo those of the Triune and  Nettie __.. near "Ferguson, and it is  believed the continuation of the. mineral '/.(jntjs of these well known mines  has heen thus struck further north.  Another group orr Goat Mountain,  from which some very line specimens  were shown to the "Hl.KAl-D. is the  Condor, owned by Clarence .McDowell  nnd others. On this property the surface showings are massive steel galena  interspersed with copper- pyrites.  Thercis a high value also iir gold. In  the lower workings a diiVerent lead  has been struck consisting of a white  ipiartz thickly .studded with galena  which carries a very good percentage  of silver. This group will-be more  extensively explored in a short time  and bids fair to become a very important mine.  STOf.'KIIOI.....  ' The recent phenomenal strike, orr  well known claim, situated orr the  'Goldfields side of .Lexington mountain,  has been proved for 1500 feet. The  property lies directly below the Kva  a mi hns'running through it a continuance of thatmine'siissure vein. Messrs  Lai-sen and I.onza. the owners of the  Stockholm, aie gettirrg all kirrds of  gold fronr the vein which Arthur  (Sowing has stripped for them almost  to Fish river flat. The vein is from 3  too feet in thickness and consists of  practically hematite, decomposed and  studded with pin head gold. A representative of the ILkhalu witnessed the  horning of two or three average samples aboirt the size of a walniitand the  result was hundreds of particles of  flour gold. So rich is this decomposed  rock, which can be crumbled between  the fingers, that it would easily pay  more than wages by crushing and  panning.  -VII the. other "claims around are  looking well.

PASSED TO THE  GREAT BEYOND  Pope Leo XIII Died on Monday Afternoon ��������� Tribute by-  Bishop Dontenwill ��������� Funeral  Arrangements.  Ko_li**, July 20-(i::.() p.m.���������The Pope  died shortly after I o'clock this afternoon. His last moments were comparatively peaceful and painless, and  were preceded by a period of insensibility.  A   TUlltl.TK.  House of  Riilfour  tbe.   Irish  the  third  After the supreme struggle, between  life and death, for the mastery over  the person of the aged and PorrtilT,  death now remains victorious.  It seemed as' though the august patient held a charmed life and that his  indomitable spirit would command the  mlunt less reaper to desist from striking  him low.  "Was there ever such a death-bed  scene!* Thanks to the magic power of  the electric wires which gird the globe  and hold in touch the inhabitants of  the extretnest poirrts of the earth, the  spiritual children of the common  father of the faithful were fortunate  enough to.assist at the last moments  of his ear tbly life. Hope succeeded  fear as the patient rallied somewhat  and three hundred millions of Catholics  knelt in prayer arrd sirppliantly implored the God of life to preserve their  beloved father. Heaven had decreed  otherwise. Today the soul of Leo  winged its flight before the .judgment  seat ot* the Supreme Judge while hi.  worn out frame remains on the death  couch in the Vatican.  Leo XIII, the philospoher, the theologian, the poet, and the statesman,  has left this world. lie will be regrel-  ted by all who during his long and  eventful reign have learned to appreciate his genius.  But what of   his   spiritual children?  For them he was the representative of  Christ upon earth.     For them he was  the mouthpiece of God; the infallible  interpreter ol the divine word; the unerring guide of tlieir way.     For them  he was the successor of Peter to whom  Christ has said:    "Thoir art Peter and  upon this rock I will build my church,  arrd the gates of  hell shall rrot prevail  against  it,"   arrd  "To thee I will give  the   keys of   the kingdom of   heaven,  what thou shalt loose upon earth shall  be   loo.ed   also   in heaven; What thou  shall, bind upon   earth  shall be bound  also in heaven."    For thern.lie was the  father   of   their  souls and they were  his children.     Hence their grief.    But  this grief is not without hope.    While  j many a   "De   profurrdis"   has already  risen before the throne of God of trrer-  i cies and  millions  more will be wafted  ! irr fervent   prayer, imploring   rest for  I the soul of their departed Pontiff, from  j the lips of   his   bereaved children   the  ���������j world   over,   a   feeling of   confidence  I pervades their hearts.  I    Loo XII I, the faithful stewartl will,  they trust, receive   the   reward he so  well deserves  from his Master, for his  long nnd faithful services for the cause  of Holy Church.

"William F.   Manning,  Vicar St.  Agnes' Chapel. New York.  T'he grace- cf cur Lord Jesus Christ bo  wi.h you  all.���������I-iiilipi'.l.ir.s,  lv.,  2*1.  We are all very familiar with these  words. Perhaps some of us are loo  familiar wilh them. Wc hear them so  often that tiny have lost the keen edge  o:  their meanig.  For some ..i us tliey may have come  to be little in..re than a convenient formula with v.-1-i..h to end our pravcrs;  a sor; oi stereotyped expression for  ��������� iiitably clo-i:*.^ our devotions, public  or private.  And yet they arc words that Saint.  Paul especially- loved. It seems thai  he could hardly write a letter without  ising them. Vou will find them ir:>e<!  over and over again at tile close or  tear the close of his epistles, and then  are no words in the pages of the New  Testament that hold a more beautiful  ���������meaning or utter a sweeter prayer  They ask that the grace, or favor, oi  good-will of Christ may be with us ar..  rest  upon us.  That is their first and most obviour*  meaning. But that is not all that the;,  mean. There is another and an cquall*  beautiful sense which these words bear  Tlie lexicon says that grace is "tha;  which affords joy, pleasure, delight  sweetness, charm, loveliness." And 1  think it is the Apostle's prayer that-ir-  ibis sense also the grace of Christ maj  ac with us; that our lives as Christian-  may have aboirt them something o  the charm and the loveliness anil tl*.*  rvonderful grace of our Lord and Ala*.  cer Jesus.  Let us think what the "grace oi  Jesus" means in this sense. Graces w-  say, is that which affords joy, pleasure  delight; it is sweetness, charm. It. elr  ness. Grace does things, not from .**  cord sense of duty, but for the pun  ... joy and happiness of doing thenr. Whci  wc speak of the "grace of God" wi  mean that which God docs for us, no  -ecause He'owes it to us, but as tin  free gift of His unspeakable love.  When we speak of a gracious man o:  woman we mean one in whom wc-sci  thoughlfuhie.s and courtesy and kind  liness, one who shows not only wil  lingness to serve others, but plcasur.  ind gladness in doing so. And I think  we can imagine how "the grace, of our  Lord Jesus"���������the gracious spirit thai  .was in Hini���������expressed itself in look  "Tuiil word and mariner.  I think we can picture that grace hi  Him as He took the little children up  irr  His arms; as He sat down by. the  .veil       to       talk       to        that        bad-  "-���������cnipered      Samaritan      woman      and  von       her     in     spite       of      herself ;  as" He took the hand of thc poor widow  who had lost her only sort, aud said  "Weep not"; as He went into the room  *here Jairus' daughter was lying,  and  said, "Talitha ctmii���������Little maid, I say  "jnto   thee,   arise.'"'     Yes,   we   can   picture the "grace of our  Lord    Jesus"  -   and, what is even more important, we  *can reflect it and reproduce it.   ln the  simple,  homely  round  of daily  Irving,  in home and store and workship ami  office, we are, if we are Christians, to  chow something of that    grace    ourselves.    It will show itself first-oi all  *4o our manners, in a beautiful courtesy  -and considerateness toward all.  We sometimes think of courtesy as  ������ little thing, a matter ot outward  _bearing, one of the "extras" oi Christian character, so to speak, an ornament-  rather than an essential part. But'  courtesy is not a little thing, and it is  not a mere matter of outward bearing;  it is the outward expression oi the iu-  ���������ser life and spirit. One of the com-  ���������"nands that' the Apostle is most careiul  to lay upon his converts is "- --������������������-*  ������OU3.''  these love makes it holy and bcauti-  !ul and most divinely attractive. And  lo 1 think that the Apostle's wordr.  nave a twofold meaning. I think they  isk not only that Christ may show Viis  grace and favor to us, but also that  tve Christians may show something ot  His grace and loveliness to others.  They ask that "thc grace of our Lord  Testis Christ" may so^Jiov. it#.lf in  Dttr daily lives, in the idling of all our  work, in our very bearing and manners that there may be more considerateness and tenderness in our  tiomes, more joy aud pleasure in our  religion, more gladness and delight in  Diir "giving," more of kindliness and  :ourtc.y and thoughtfulncss and broth-  :rlincss in all our dealings one with  mother.

The Telephone in Chinatown.  One of the unique features of the far-  famed Chinatown of San Francisco is  the Chinese "hello girl." The Oriental folk, (prick to adopt the ways  of the American, have long recognized the convenience of the telephone.  For several years most of the rich Chinamen have used telephones, but pidgin  Knglish talked over the wire to central  hnd its disadvantages. "Youcatclree him,  led-ii seblen���������you sabe���������li seblcn-led, led  (1���������oh, you heap sassy now���������you sahe  him���������fi, et cetera," with four others on  the ten party line trying to get a num.*  her, not only created trouble with central, but nlso encouraged profanity along1  tlio line. However, to business-.iko  "John" time is just ns valuable as it is  to the American financier, so Ire decided  to waste rro more time with the "Mcli-  ean" central. An appeal was made to  the telephone company. Tlie result wui>  the establishing of a branch ollice situ*  ated in the heiirt of Chinatown and the  employing of Chinese operators.  That wa.s two years ago.   Since that  time over live hundred 'phones have beer  placed  in   thc   Oriental  quarter,  nearly  every business house of importance being  a subscriber.    The oflice is fitted up in  i luxurious  stylo,    with     polished   (loom,  ebony furniture, and elaborate carvings  so dear to the China man.   At the switchboard five girls and  as many boys, all  native sons and daughters, are employed.  The girls, with tlieir elaborate coiffures,  their jewels, and pretty flowing gowns of  gay colors,  present n  charming picture  Voices  of clenr  falsetto   ring  over  the  'phone with metallic precision.   There i������  no  fussing, no  flirting, each little rnaio  being as demure as a nun.   There is no  trouble about wrong switches, for one o!  the characteristics of the Chinese is that,  when a duty is once mastered, it is al*  ways performed with mechanical accuracy.   The officers of the company say that  a mistake  in  the  books   of   a Chinese  bookkeeper is a very rare occurrence, and  that a complaint of central is absolute!;  unknown.   Ori the side of the room opposite the switch-board a joss is installed.,  and from  the  incense-burners   tiny  columns of perfumed smoke curl up, pervading and purifying every corner wherein  mi evil spirit might lurk' in contemplation of mischief.  For the Farmer.  The great Chicago packing firms  have now taken hold of the poultry  and egg business along with their  beef and pork.  Trichinosis is evidently a very rare  disease. Replying to a question in thc  British House of Commons, Mr. Han-  bury said that Dutch and Danish pork  had recently been condemned in-Smith-  freld Market, as unfit for food, mainly  on account of tuberculosis, but a case  of trichinosis had not been discovered  for the last twenty years.  Humor of the Hour.  A Feminine Financier.  A Peculiar Bequest.  In a review, of tho people he has met  "ns counsel and Magistrate.'* Jlr. Cecil  Chapman, one of the metropolitan Magistrates, points out In M.A.P. tliat a fact  not generally known is that a year or two  ago tlio police courts of l_(-]idon received  a windfall of some twenty thousand  pounds, to be invested- for tlie poor-box  funds, from a man who for many years  used' to frequent lhe ai.-irlboroush street  court as an onloolier.

Some two  and a half years ago a littlo old man,  dressed In a blue suit of a naval cut. entered the Marlborough Street Pollco  Court, und, assuming a businesslike air,'  pushed ills way tlirough tho crowd ot  waiting witnesses towards the bench.  "What do you waul ?" asked Mr. F. J.  Elliott, the assistant Magistrate's clerk.

My object V That" you will seo  in good   time."  Mr.  Elliott,  regaiding him   as a specimen of the harmless ece*. ntric common to  all police courts, humored him in the fulfilment of. what he culled his "mission."  He gave hlrn a seat near his desk and allowed him to sit in his office and hear th.  applications. 'This went on daily for over * serted.  twelve   months.

Keeping Out Apple Tree Borers.  I have spent much time and money  trying to get a young orchard started.  Many of thc trees I planted originally  some fourteen years ago died, and uniformly the cause of death was borers.  The worms would work close to the  ground, and often cut thc tree trunk  off so that a wind would blow the tree  over. This in spite of the fact that 1  hunted the .borers faithfully every  year, cutting the holes out until 1  reached every worm, but many would  escape me.  1 tried winding thc trunks with wire  cloth; 1 painted the trunks, and the loss  continued. Last year 1 tried the plan  of tying papers about the trees. Common newspapers arc as good as anything else. I began close to the  ground, pressing the paper well into  the earth, and winding it around until I had covered some two feet of thc  trunk. Then, with twine, I fastened  the papers tightly at thc top and bottom, so that the moth could not gain  entrance at either place. This was  done in the month of May, which is as  late as the work should be deferred,  since the moth begins its mischief soon  after that. The papers were left on  until fall, when they were all taken of!  for the winter. At .that lime I made  a careful examination for borers, and  was highly gratified to find very few,  and I think these had made their entrance previous.to the time of putting  on. the papers. So well pleased am f  with the result of this attempt to keep  out the borers that I shall put the  same plan in operation this year.���������E.  L. Vincent, in New York Tribune Farmer.

There is no question but private  butter-making, intelligently and skilfully  conducted, can be made, and is made,  more remunerative than the factory  system. This is being proven by numerous examples about us. The reason  for this is not far to seek. In the  factory system the cost of handling the  milk or crcain, and of making and selling the product, is paid for at the factory, ln private dairying ail the labor and detail involved in the making  and selling is done by the parties carrying on the business, and is just that  much added to the receipts for the  product. Further than that, where the  selling is direct to consumers, as in  many cases can easily be arranged,  the profits of the grocer are also secured by the dairyman making the  product. All this adds a considerable  figure to what is paid at the factory  to the farmer who makes the milk.  So private dairying can still be commended to all farmers where liberal  receipts and prompt payment are a  necessity or are the leading motive for  effort.  But notwithstanding the greater receipts from private dairy business,  there is a standing reluctance on thc  part of farmers, even those who arc  in pressing need of its advantages, to  engage in such a line of effort. There  seems to be a general dislike among  farmers to study up, engage in, and  continuously attend to the details of,  business or to take up any line of ef- |  fort calling for attention to the little  things involved in its successful issue.  They seem to overlook the fact, well  understood in business circles, that suc-  =ccs5*=*everywheTe=i*;���������dependent^on^at***.  tention to djigils individually small, but  important in their combinations. Nowhere is this more important than on  the farm. It especially applies to the  business of private dairying. Hence,  though there is money in it, yet there  is widespread reluctance to engage in  the  bfsincss.

A most Interesting address on tho working  of  the   premium   system   which   lias  been Introduced In*the payment of wages  ln    various    engineering    establishments  was recently delivered at tlie Institution  of Mechanical   isnginecrs   hy Mr.  James  Kowan,  a member of tlie cm incut Glasgow   lirm   of  Rowan   &  Co.,   marine   engineers, says The London Commercial Intelligence.    By  the proinium wages system  each   man  is  paid a regular  hourly;  rate of wages.    When a job is given out  a certain  time is allowed   lor it.    If tlio  Job is completed  in  less time than that  allowed   the   workman   becomes   'entitled  to  a premium,  varying in  amount  wlili  the time saved.   It the job lakes longer  than the time allowed, the -worlcman gets  paid his regular hourly rate ol* wages, so  that,'no  mutter hbwsliort a  time   may  be allowed  for a job, the hourly rate of  wages,   at least,   will   ho   paid   while  engaged   on    that   job.      In    outlining    tho  scope and advantages of the system, Mr.  ltowan laid stress on the Importance on  caroful   investigation   and   iniiuiry  Imfor.  the   scheme was   adopted,* as   assiduous  attention and steady perseverance were,  he said, necessary to success.   Experience  In   Messrs.   Rowan's   works   had ' shown  that as   the workman  gained   conlidenee  that   his   time   allowance   would   not   ho  reduced, no matter how short a. time ho  took to a job,  ho gradually reduced his  tlmo. .'Tiro.premium  system  was started  in tho works.iri February, 1S!)S, and since  its  Introduction  tho  times taken  by  all  tho   machine   men .had,   on   an   average,  been reduced during tlio' four succeeding  years by 20, .^3. 31 and 37 .per-cent.* .respectively.'.' The earnings of the men had  consequently increased by these percentages.    The  firm  had given every assistance  in  accomplishing  this  reduction  of  time by  general  Improvements in many  directions.   .Mr. Rowan snid ho had conferred at various'times, with many of tho-  men,   and   they   frankly   admitted    that  they were thoroughly satisfied with   the  premium system, and would not care to  go  back to the old time system.    As a  matter  of  fact,   there were  now    fower  changes amongst the workmen than before the premium system was started.  Hampered by Lack of Time.--  The suburbanite was hurrying to his  train, when a rough-looking man who  was lounging in front of -a saloon  thrust out his foot and tripped him,  says a New York Exchange. Quickly gathering himself up, the suburbanite grabbed him by the collar and  resumed his run, dragging the fellow  along. - ���������������������������  "I haven't time to stop and polish  you off as it ought to be,done," he  said,* administering a stilt punch on thc  other's nose with his disengaged fist,  without losing a step, "but I think  (biff) I can make it interesting for you  (biff) just the same���������here, now, don't  try to hang back (biff) you lazy hound!

Behind .hose two were the companions  whom Lord Wyersdale's daughter had  brought with her, on her very early visit  to enquire about the invalid Astley. The  one was her young "brother,'.tt' round-  faced boy of eighteen or so, who wore his  arm in a sling, and a fragile-looking girl,  exquisitely dressed in a pale gray tailor-  made costume, with gray furs to match  arid a black velvet hat, who proclaimed  her nationality by a slight but not lin-  plcnsing American accent.

"Yes, it's nil very sad, and we've been  -Mel" he cried in cheerful surprise, as  he stopped his horse, which he was driving himself, and tried to smile in the  baronet's face.  The ajttempt was a failure, however.  Before he ..ould compose his face, Astley  had leapt down into the road and come  up to him.  "Yes, you, you plotting knave and unscrupulous rascal!" stammered the baronet, get'ing out the syllables in jerks,  as he tightened his grasp of his hunting-  whip.  "Sir Astley! You forget yourself,"  said Dr. Wharles, stammering in his  turn.   "If you want any explanation���������"  "I don't!" cried Astley, as he leapt on  to the step of the dogcart, "I want satisfaction.   And I take it���������like this."  And with that he cut thc doctor a  smart blow across his cheek, causing the  tlesh to swell and the blood lo come, and  *|i o doctor himself to shrink hack, quivering.  The doe-tor uttered no word, no cry.  But out of his half-closed eyes he shot  It the baronet a deadly look.  CHAPTER XIV.  Although Norma and her visitors were  .oo far from the spot where the encounter took place between Astley and Dr.  Wharles for them to hear .clearly the  words which passed between the two  men, yet tlie actions of both had been  unmistakable.  The stop, the springing down of Astley, his attack on t'hc doctor, and tho  dogged attitude of the other: all were  to be seen too plainly for anybody to  maka more than a faint attempt not to  notice what was going on.     . ..,*._,  And if such an attempt was made on  the part of the visitors it was thrown  away on poor Norma, who was too completely absorbed in the unhappy occurrence to pay any* attention to the effect  It might have upon her companions.  It was not until Astley had "got down  into the road, and the doctor-had suffered his coachman to take the reins and  to drive him off at a smart pace, that  the group on the lawn got their breath,  and the ladies tried to behavo as if they  _.,;_Yv" ���������������������������Wiit"__*"the"poor o'hiid is quite    thinking and   talking   of   nothing   else,  .gurdly;     but n������_i..n.  l;.*-"-"   ���������'._  iTn  ���������"*������������������..,���������     To,!*..  *n-T..._.Ti    T    .cam*.,  -i-nil "   she   <snid  ready to efface herself, and to go away  and never trouble you again, I don't  know what more you,would have."

As they disappeared down.thc drive,  with nods and smiles and waving hands,  kindly 'meant to keep up her spirits in  the portentous circumstances, Norma,  rather comforted in spite of herself by  these demonstrations of kindness on the  part of her new acquaintances, went  quickly into ..the house in search oi Astley.  She did not find him: she wns told that  he had shut'himself into the library, and.  after pacing up and down outside tin.  door for a little while in the hope tha;  he might hear her arid tell her to conic  in, she went sorrowfully away to hei  own room.  It was still very early, wanting an  hour or more to luncheon time.

There was nothing that Norma desired  less than another interview with this  lady, especially after the scene she had  witnessed between hor hushand and Astley an hour before. She did not liko to  refuse, however, _o she went down to  the morning-room, irrto which the visitor  had been shown.  The doctor's wife was in no fighting  mood. She was nervous, humble, almost-  hysterical, and the first words she uttered were an apology.  "I must beg you to excuse this intrusion, Lady Darwen," she said, "but I  dare say you know what's happened���������between Sir Astley and my husband, I  mean, and���������I've come to tell you how  wrong Sir Astley is, how entirely wrong!

But she was in  such a state of nervous agitation, lest  Sir Astley should burst in upon us again,  now that he's taken to personal violence,  that I thought if better that she should  get away at once, before she broke down  altogether. But as I knew what Sir Astley would say, when he heard she was  tone, I thought it best that you should  know, once for all, that if the lawyers  or the police, or anybody Sir Astley likes  to send, will go and see her, she will be  ready to meet them as she will be ready  to meet him. There, I won't trouble you  airy further.   Good morning."  "Good-by," said Norma very coldly,  with her whole heart up irr arms against  the doctor and his wife arrd family, who  had irritated Astley to the extent "of provoking him to thc morning's attack. She  Vhought this woman's new humility * in  the face of such an outrage very suspicious, and began to feel her hopes risirrg  that the lawyers would Iind out something which would free Astley arrd herself from their present miserable position.  At luncheon time she met Astley, who  was looking so worn, so much distressed,  that her heart ached for hiin, nnd it wus  with great difiiculty that she maintained  that* reserved air which they had now  both tacitly agreed to hold towards each  other. ���������  He gave her hut a brief account of tho  occurrences of the morning, but she had  seen and heard enough to understand  pretty well what hnd taken place. And  he to'ld her that Mr. Geoffrey Capper of  the firm of Johnson & Capper, would arrive that evening.  Astley said he should spend the afternoon alone in the library, and only ono  look passed between these two unhappy  beings before they separated until dinner-time.  By that time.Mr. Capper had arrived,  and the presence of this third person was  a welcome relief to them both, lessening  the acute tension at.which they hnd.  passed the day.    -*��������� '  Mr. Capper was a-tall, gaunt, middle-'  aged man, with a little ginger-colored  hair still left round his head, hut with  none on the top, a long,-shrewd face  and a pleasant, courteous manner.  He heard all that had to be told, and  declined to pass any opinion upon the  case as if stood.  He, however, had previous knowledge  of Lottie's-conduct while her husband  was away, and although he saw the danger of a scheme being laid by her-family  to shelter her from the consequences^of  her levity by wholesale perjury, he  would not say that he had no hope of  being able to circumvent them.  "There is one person," said he, "who  . must be found.   And the most suspicious  feature of the case is that 'he seeni3 to  have disappeared altogether."  "Who is that?"-asked Astley.  Mr. Capper glanced at Norma a3 if reluctant  to  go  on  before  her; but  she  mado an entreating gesture.  c   "Let me. know all 1 may,"'she pleaded.  "Do you think I'm not interested too?"  Mr. Capper went on:  "lt is a certain  Tom Rogerson, whom she was fond of  when  she  was an unmarried girl,' with  whom.she also carried on a flirtation afterwards,   when  you,   Sir  Astley,  were  away.    This Rogerson appears to be a  ne'er-do-weel, and a man undeserving of  the shghtest respect, a man who would  be useful to us, as he would  have no  honorable  scruples  about    telling    the  .truth, which a better sort of man would  never do in t'he circumstances.*"  Astley frowned.  "I'd rather not make use of such a  man," objected he.  While Norma's quick movement of assent showed that she sympathized thoroughly with his feeling, 3lr. Capper  shrugged his shoulders slightly.  "We rinist use such tools as are to  hand," said he drily. "This follow,"as. 1  say, would undoubtedly be a strong witness, and probably we could get his evidence supported. In fact, I feel sure of  that. On the other hand/: the. family  know this 'alio, and there is no doubt at  all. that they are keeping him out of the  way."  "Well, I'm glad of it," said Astley  quickly.  "Oh* no, you cannot be glad of a circumstance which probably makes all tho  'difference'-between happiness and misery  not only to you, but also," and ho  {������������������lanced at Norma, "to Lady Darwcn."  "It's horrible," put in Norma in a low  voice, "to be persecuting a woman, isn't  it? Hunting Irer down?''  And she shuddered. ...'  "If she or her family had shown tin  least compunction in their dealings wrtl  you ���������b6tli,".snid Mr. Capper deliberately  ���������'I should say there was some sense ir  what you urge. But, as it stands, I  think your sympathy is misplaced."  "Periraps, if he's such a loose fish," suggested Astley, "he would be a worthies  witness to niiyhculy."

(To be Continued.)  A High-Priced Dinner.  The- Paris newspapers have lately  printed the account of a strange,lawsuit,  which the "Green Bag" of Boston translates for its readers. The complainant  in the case testified that he was dining  on the terrace in front of a restaurant,  enjoying the air as well as the food. He  had just begun to eat his soup, which he  found too hot for his palate. While  waiting for the soup tii cool, he took  from his pocket a roll of bills which he  had received in payment of a bill.  In counting the'money he accidentally  dropped a'hundred-franc bank-noto into  his soup. He took it out of his plate  with a fork, and sent the soup away.  The-bank-note was saturated with the  greasy liquid, and he laid it down on thc  tablecloth to dry.  'He was partaking of the second course,  when n sudden gust of wind blew the  note i the table. He ran after it, but  a do*,, which, although it wore a collar,  arid therefore in all probability had a  home, yet showed every sign of hunger,  seized it. The taste of ..lie soup on the  paper made it palatable, arrd the dog  swallowed the note in an instant.  The complainant used all.his persuasive power in an effort to get the dog to  come near him. "Good doggy I Como  here I" he coaxed.  .The animal, pleased with the taste of  the soup, was finally tolcd near enough  for the complainant to : read the name  engraved on the collar. When he had  made a note of the heme and address of  the owner of the dog, he dismissed him  with a Scotch blessing.  Then he sought his lawyer, and brought  suit against the owner of the dog for  the restitu   m ot the hundred francs.  Ths court decided that the owner of  tho dog must pay, holding that since the  dog was property, the owner must ho  held responsible for any act committed  by tho animal.  Mr.  IT rank H.

Orr July Kith tho last address delivered wan hy President ted. Acinic, a  report of which was omitted from onr  columns last week owing to pressure  011 .space. Iu part his speech was as  follows:  I'HKl.1 Ill-NT   UU.   AI.AIH  delivered a most hearty speech. He  must apologize, he said, in corninenc-  itijj;, iit'liC-ini* unprepared to do justice  to Ilie occasion as it was understood  thill the Past President should have  filled his position, hut considered it  would he remiss if he did not make a  few remarks orr the 213th anniversary  of the battle nf the Boyne. He had  the honour of heing a Past President  of the Loyal True i.lues and was for  the first three years after its institution President of the lodge in Revelstoke and w:is the only charter menr-  liec piesent orr this occasion. He well  re mem he red M7 years ago, the state of  the Fenian raid orr Fort J.rie, and was  glad to see in the room Bro. O'Brien  who was with .him at that time and  wore the badge for his good service.  Although only a, hoy-of 18, he, the  the speaker*, had shouldered his rifle  then and was tho only one in the  company who was not an Orangeman.  He, however, was too young, hut  when the trouble was over, on Nov. 0,  18GG, he was let into the mysteries of  the Orderairl had been a member ever  since.    (Applause.)  And in all that time, continued Mr.  Adair,   there   had   been   a     for ward  movement.      Iu 1S71, what today was  1 he   city of  Winnipeg,  .with   nearly  70.030 inhabitants, Was old Fort Garry  surrounded by Indian tepees.    He had  the honour.of attending,-a few weeks  ago, the Supreme Grand  Lodge in the  Scott Memorial''Hall at the capital of  Manitoba,' erected  to  the memory of  Bro. Scott who was 'murdered' during  tho trouble with Kiel.   Times.had very,  much changed since the date he first  mentioned.  The charter for the ioitial  lodge  west  of  the   Great   Lakes was  carried hy a  brother  who went with  Woiseley. on  his greut inarch to Fort  Garry and   when   that   brother came  and the trouble   was; partly  over the  first lodge  was  instituted  in the hold  of  a   small   steamer,   the   captain of  which,  sword  in harrd, stood on deck  and acted as outside  sentinel.     That  lodge, .No, 1307, was in existence today  .������������������."in Winnipeg   with   135 '.'members and  .Major   Mtilvey,   probably : known   to  many   present,   was   its first master.  Since that time' the Orange Order had  progressed   enormously..'until   .there  ���������wore 249 lodges  in Manitoba and the  .JVorth  West arid 42 in British Columbia, of which 15 were in theKootenays.  -The president  then spoke of events  surrounding .���������tiie ��������� first attempt to erect  :  a Scott iireiirorial some years ago. The  brethren, he said, had collected $1500  for this  purpose when AVinnipeg was  visited hy a plague.   ... Every dollar of  \ this sum was spent in helping the sick  and   burying   the   dead ��������� without any  '.'���������'"' distinction   of ' creed   or' colour. ..The  Eomivn Catholics- had 'recognized this  self-sacrificing   work   and'what   had  *.'.*   been the result?   When the Romanist  '  owner of the land on which the present Memorial Hall  was" erected lit. ard  for what purpose it was intended he  ,    cut tlie price in half and even the flag  which -<'tl6ated over the  building was  presented, at   a  cost  of  $150, to the  Order   by .another   member   of    the  ������������������-���������Roman Catholic Church.    (Applause.)  Mr.   Adair   then   gave   a ^splendid  description of the recent Grand Lodge,  meeting in  Manitoba when the: memorial was dedicated, aiid described tin  electric effect of Rev. Dr. Young, wh<.  had been Mr. Scott's spiritual adviser,  unexpectedly appearing on the seen?  and giving a  detailed   description   ol  the   last days   of  his   life.     He then  referred   briefly to the great material  advantages  of   the   west, concluding  with   "British   Columbia ������������������'.���������the gem of  them   all, on   the   east of  which God  Almighty   had  erected  'the    Rocky  Mountains   as  a  wall to protect his  chosen   people of   this Province from  the  cold   winds    of    the    prairies."  (Cheers.)  The   Orange Order, he said, as had  "    heen stated   by Mr. Calder,  stood for  civil   and   religious   lioerty.   as   well  . shown   by   its   first motto "My God,  My Country and My King."   And not  only Orangemen butevcry true citi. Kir  ^=���������o_=the-=*-Biiipiie "could^celebrate-^the  present occasion.      It   was one lo call  lo our remembrance the foundation of  our freedom   "equal   rights for every  man* special  privileges for none."   Jn  conclusion,  he thanked  all  for being  present and  though  the weather had  prevented outside sports heing held he  thought  an   enjoyable afternoon had  been spent.    (Cheers.)  After another selection hy the band  all present rose and sang the National  ��������� Anthem which terminated the pro-  ceedings. Before separating I_. O. L.  1058 by formal resolution tendered a  vote of thanks to the committee who  planned and carried out the arrangements for the day; to the True'Blu.s  for their hearty assistance and cooperation in making the celebration  of the Glorious Twelfth so successful  and to the many friends who by word  and deed encouraged  the brethren in  * their elfin ts to emphasize the victory  at the Boyne.  cHUitcrr SERVICE.  On Sunday, the 12th instant, being  the 213th anniversary of the battle of  the   Bovire,   L. O. L. NTS'. 1058,.accompanied iiy L. T. B. No. 174, paraded to  tlio''Presbyterian   church   where   an  eloquent  and instructive address was  delivered  by Rev. Bro. Calder, Chaplain of L. O. I..1058.    The members of  both lodges then returned to I lie hall  where ti joint  meeting was held arrd a  resolution   passed expressing satisfaction with   the masterly and able manner in which   the  Hev. Bro. had dealt  with his subject, and extending to hirrr |  the hearty thanks of nil  members for  his sermon.    Bro. Calder responded in  liis usual   happy   manner arrd all dispersed well satisfied with the annual  .Sabbath service.  ANNUA I, HI-llMON.  On the occasion of   the  711011   to   the   members of   the   Loyal  Orange Lodge, on  July 12th, Rev, W.  C. ('aider took for his text Joshua iv,  li, "What mean ye by these stones,"  presenting his subject under these  heads, the Past, the Present and the  Future.  1���������The Past.  When Israel had passed through tbe  Jordan   by   the   way  which   God   bad    opened    for   them  Joshua commanded  that  twelve men  should be chosen, one from each of the  tribes,  to  fake each a stone out. of the  bed of the river and  form them into a  monument  so  that   this   might   be a  sign among  you  that.when your children ask thoir father's irr tinre to corrre,  saying.   "What   mean   ye    by   these  stones?" then ye shall answer them,  that the waters of .Ionian were cut oil*,  and these stones  shall   be a memorial  unto   the   children of   Israel forever."  That cairn  of stones  Union fronr Jordan's stream and set up in Gilgnl stoop  for. 1st*. I.i'liverance from the horrible  bondage    ol"     ICgypt:   2nd.   Krci'dorn,  religious liberty, national life, und Mwl  thu Memory of Jehovah their deliverer.    We can today, (this 12th of July.)  also raise otrr cairn of  storres   bearing  the names   of   the   nations that have  played a large part irr the struggle for  light and liberty, in   throwing oif  the  yoke of spiritual bondage and political  slavery under  the hand of God. Prussia,   Denmark,   Holland,   Switzerland,  France,  as represented in the lliigen-  ots, Norway,  Sweden,  Fnglitnd, Scotland, Ulster, arrd the United States as  seen   in   the   Pilgrim   Father's.     Our  land mark:, of history are witrressed irr  the   Reformation     movement    when  Luther nailed his thesis on the door of  the   church   in   Wittenberg,   the St.  Bartholomew     massacre,     the     long  struggle   of   37   years in Holland, thc  land to  which   we owe so much.    We  boast,   claiming   civil   and     religious  liberty as  the outcome of the struggle  in the mother   laird,   forgetful that in  Holland the  battle  was fought which  alone   could   have   mads   10SS and '1)0  possible.    That small but brave people  who, almost driven'to .their last ditch,  had come'to'the determination to sink  their land 'beneath the ocean, putting  their families on board ship arrd sailing  across   tin known   seas   to     unknown  shores to find a land where tliey could  worship according  to  tlie dictates of  conscience.     William the Silent, that  great hero who stood With his people  in the hour of  their extremity, finally,  becoming a martyr to the cause.    'The  Spanish Armada, the concentration of  the great power of Philip II.     "We'see  the hurrying'thousands of .England us  they gathered on  tlieir white clHi's to  defend their land, watching this great  Armada  as''it.'."swept up the English  Channel.   Lo, behold it caught in the  storms of the German  ocean arrd scattered  by the  hand of- God.    England  with its long struggle running tlirough  the reigns of Charles I. and James 11.  culminating   in   the   victory of   1G8S.  Scotland  with  its story of the Covenant.      Ulster   with   its stirring story.  The -.Pilgrim'. Fathers���������-that   Puritan  band���������driven   from   their native land,  taking, ship from   the 'shores of   Holland,.facing the.'-.dangers'of the ocean  arid: landing   orr   Plymouth ' Rock, to  found the great nation to:the south.  2���������-The; Present^ As*; we tunr-our  thoughts to the "present 'we. meet a  .question which lis.often asked, '- WJjj-  rrot let these things die���������this 12th of  July celebration with its "Protestant  Boys' aiid 'Boyne Waters.' It only  creates bad feelings, it stirs.up strife,  Why: hot*, let; peace brood Over the  scene." .* Surely those who asksuch  questions are forgetful of'many things.  Who is the agressor? "Who disturbs  the peace? * Is it not that great power  the Church of Rome, which is ceaseless  in its eoitstf to turn hack the hands of  time and rob us1 of our liberties. Let  Rome cease her������������������������������������ meddling with the  nations, let her come down from her  claims of political ascendancy and take  herplace as any of thef other religious  bodies and all necessity for this day's  celebration���������'. is at an end. : Loolc at  Germanyr-^as vthe result of the recent  .lection the clericals stand at the head  .if tlie polls with a representation of  102. The Emperor William in league  ���������villi, this force to gain his own ends.  The great influx of Jesuits from France  aid the efforts being made to remove  all legal barriers, * the sure'effort to  reverse the work of the reformation.'  Let us turn our attention to England  at the present moment. Think of the  established Church of England, that  great church -which has done so much  in the past for the advancement of  Christ's Kingdom, with its heritage of  great and noble men whose lives are  an inspiration, witn its 20,000 clergy,;  .1300 of whom are doing Rome's work  in restoring the mass, the confessional,  prayers foi- the dead, the worship of  saints, etc. Watch tho struggle imposed upon the people of England  du-^gh^h^^pre^n^go^^mmeiiiys-  note of enmity or strife but the glad  utterance of thousands who rejoice in  the past through tbe successful struggle for the things which we enjoy  today. When our children ask what  mean you by these things, we shall  tell them the' story over again aird  hand down our glorious inheritence to  generations yet unborn. It is for us  to draw inspiration from the deeds of  the noble rrren and women who have  lived and suffered and died for principles which we all hold dear. It is for  us to remember what we are and  should be. Many things hard have  been said against us in the past which  I feel we deserve. It is for us to remember our high calling as Orangemen. The humble Christian as he  makes his confession of faith does not  begin to take upon hiin the vows which  we do a.s we pass fronr degree to degree  of our Order. Kvery Royal Arch man  as he watches the 'next' initiation, as  he Irenes oui' ritual set forth will realize what it demands of him. It calls  hirrr within the veil of tho holies where  God's presence dwells and demands of  hirrr the life of a truly Christian man.  It i.s not for- trs to read history ignor-  antly Imt intelligently and out of this  to cultivate that spirit of peace that  will enable us to look with kindness  illto.the faces of those who oppose us  and while it. might be said there goes  an Orangeman, it will also be said  there goes a worthy man. There is  nothing irr one ritual, nothing irr our  lodges but what breathes a spirit of  kindness to those of another faith.  We can look forward with hopes of  seeirrg in other days the union of Orange and Green, and that unity of all  colours made known by the prism of  history, unto that unity which will  characterise the Kingdom of God as it  rules the nations  in the ages to come.

Is she inactive in  our  own   land, Canada.     Watch the  renewal of the Manitoba school struggle.     See  her  in her claims for a majority of till civil offices.      The present  government is staving off the question  of forming tlie   Territories   into provinces. Why? Because there is Rome's  claim for the dual language and separate schools.     Is  there one moulder of  unity and peace and national greatness  greater   than   the   common    school:*'  Then it is for us to safeguard this. Our  contehtion  is, not with Roman Catholics as faras tlieir religion is concerned.  It is with Rome's political aiirrs.   The  Hottentot can bow down  to his fetish  and   no one is concerned.     The I3inl-  dist   can   come   into our country and  raise   his   temples  undisturbed.

"Hero Is a specimen of favorito  table delicacy of the Fiji Islanders."  baid tbe man who kept the delicatessen shop, ���������and 1 will make the whole  batch of il a present to you if yo.  wi.l eat a half-inch square ot it."  Me removed several layers of heavj"  pa] er from the    parcel he    produced,  aiul as the contents of tho parcel wore  gradually brought nearer to the open  air an arena as of a wlrirT from a moss  of    rare-ripe    sauerkraut,    garnished  with    bits    of    pungent    Limburgei*  cheese, made its presence known. Tlio  reporter retreated  a  few  paces.    Tlio  storekeeper took a largo roll from the  paper  wrapping, and, unwinding    an  inch or two of curious loo     lg leave:;  with  which  it was bound, revealed a  dark brown substance of a consistence  of cream cheese.    He cut off a piecu  with his knife and ate it,    ostensibly  with relish.    The reporter drew uc;U"  enough to investigate.  "What is it, anyhow?" he asked.  'This is the fatuous maidral of tho  South Sea Islands." replied the delicatessen man, "ami It is too palatable by  far for any one to mind a li".le thing  like its smell.    It was sent to me by  Dr Rawsorr, who has lived on one of  the islands for several ye; *s.    Peoplo  generally think that the    South    Sea  Islanders are' cannibals, but that isn't  so.    They cprit that long ago.    Fruit  Is their food staple    now,    and    this  maidral  is  the  favorite  edl-ie."  "I didn't suppose before," remarked  the reporter, "that there could he anything much more awful than caniil-  balisni."  "That's all right," said the storekeeper: "but wait until you hear how  this is made. This Is simply a lot of  bananas, yams and a fruit they call  the taro, all pounded together " until  they become a thick and vilelookiiis  paste. The paste Is wrapped up tightly in layers of dried leaves of the banana tree, in rolls like this and is then  hurled in pits on the sea shore,  dug between high and low water  mark. It is left there In sweet repose  for- oue year, with the salt water  filtering into the pits upon it, as tho  tide flows* and ebbs. By tbat time it  has reached the delightful stage of  maturity that you may have observed  in this specimen. After being iltis  11 p the packages are steamed tor an  hour or so, anil the maidral is then  ready for use.    Try a piece.  "Dr. Rawson .writes me,'" said thn  delicatessen man, as he took annth.-j.  bite of the paste, "that the South Sen,  Islanders have another delicacy that  lin would have liked to send me specimens of. but owing to ths .nature of it  he was unable to do so. He calls it a  suki. It is a fish four or live inches  long, which the natives eat alive.  When a Fiji Islander feci_ as if ho  would like a dozen raw he doesn't  have to go to the counter and order'  'em, as we do oysters, but saunters  down to the seaside, and with a littlo  net scoops out his suki and bolts it.  before it has time to know what has  happened to it. The beauty of lunching on these fish is, the Doctor says,  that you don't have to chew nor swallow. You throw your head back, open  3'our mouth and drop the suki into it.  head first. The suki gives a wrigglo  and goes down as slick and easy as  an oyster. I'd like to have just ono  dozen sukis now. after which, 1 think  I could better enjoy this suluka, which  Is one of half a dozen the Doctor sent  me." '  The suluka was a cigar, Ave inches  long, tapering from a broad, flat end  to a point as sharp as a lead pencil  point.  "This is the only thing they smoke  In the South Sea Islands,"   said   thn  storekeeper, "and some people might  pot like the flavor.        Every    citizen  Hown there has his fireplace    in    hia  house for the curing of the wrappers  for these cigars.    Cocoanut husks are  always   smoldering   ln the   fireplace,  which is a spot on the bare ground in  one corner of the  house, surrounded  by a few stones.    The cigar -orapper  Is dried   banana    leaves.     The   cigar  filler is leaf tobacco, which is dried iu  j the sun, and when  wanted for cigar-  , making    Is held    over    the    cocoanut  ! husk  fire until  it  becomes  crisn.    ft  ,_la_.then_xolled_In_the___anana*deaUunti,,=  !

Tho fra-  i grance  wafted   from  It  was  like  that  wafted from a tire in a rural baek-  ; yard in spring cleaning up time. The  i delicatessen man handed It to the re-  j porter. The reporter ventured on one  ��������� wiff and hastily handed the suluka  ! back.  I "What Is It like?" asked the store.  j fieeper, holding the suluka poised.  "It leaves a sensation In your  j /nouth," replied the reported, "as If  j you had chewed a green persommon  i and    scattered    red    pepper    in    tho  pucker."  .AN INTERESTING QUESTION-  HERE AND THERE  Why niun Onci .lore to llii Wife Than  ills .1 lotli.r.  The Interesting question of whether  a man owes more to his wife or to  his mother comes up iu a Kansas City  court.  "If a man's mother is dependent upon him. and his wifo objects to living  in the same house with her, he must  provide separate homes for his mother and for himself and wife," sai'l  ���������Judge J. H. Stover.  **If he refuses to provide separate  homes she has a good excuse for leaving him and he cannot secure a di-  torcc from her on thu ground of do*  vertiou."  The evidence showed that the man'*,  'mother and sister did not gel along  smoothly with his wife, but that they  occasionally quarrelled about household affairs. Hut the facts did not  show that the wife was blameless or  that her condition was rendered intolerable. But in spite of this the Judge  decided that the wife was entitled to  * separate home.  This supports tire Biblcal injunction  for a man to "leave father and nrothe.  arrd cleave to his wife." In discussing  this question from a modem legal  point of view the Judge said:  "A mau owes more to his wife, of  course. The Bible says so, as well a.  the law.  "A woman has a right to demand a  separate home when she marries a  man. It doesn't make any difference  whether the man's relatives make it  unpleasant for her or not. She didn't  marry his relatives. She married hintl  ���������'But a man ought not to let hia  mother go to the poorhouse on that  account, and If lie is a common laborer on |'l a day and it is impossible  to support wife and mother in different homes it is hard to tell what ho  should do, but his wife has the prior ���������jjy'hfm.  claim.  "Wherever the husband goes tho  wife must follow, whether she wants  to or not, but once in the home it ia  as much hers as his and he has no  right to bring any one into it who is  objectionable to ber. I had a breach  of promise case lu the courts here a  few years ago ln which the man refused to marry the girl unless she  would consent for his mother to live  with them. She would not consent.  Neither would he marry her, so shi.  sued him for1 breach of promise aiul  recovered damages. Both shed tears  In court and both protested that the;r  still loved each other.  "The reason that the man owen  more to the wifo than* to the mother  is that it Is a law of nature. She l'i  rearing his family. In the eyes of th.  law they are oue." ... .    .  The lawyers in the case have found?  several decisions orr the point, one a  "Vermont case similar to this, in which  the court said:  "Any man who has proper tenderness and affection for his wife would  certainly not require her to reside  near his relatives if her peace of mind  were thereby seriously disturbed.  "As the wife alleges the vicinity of  .he husband's relatives as a reason  why she cannot live with him, and as  every one at all experienced in such  matters knows that It is not uncommon for the female relatives of tha  husband to create, either Intentionally  or accidentally, disquietude in the  mind of the wife, and thereby to destroy her comfort and health often,  and as there Is no attempt here to  show that this Is a simulated excuse,  we must treat it as made in good faith  and If so, we are not prepared to say  that she is liable to be divorced for  acting upon It."

The plant  bearing it is a hybrid between tho  raspberry and the common blackberry. The taste of the fruit combines  the flavor of the dewberry with that  of the raspberry, and it comes into  perfection as the raspberries are falling.  Up to the sixteenth century English  beer was very poor, only/flavored with  broom, bay berries or ivy berries; but  in 15-12 the cultivation of the hop  plant was begun in England, and from  that time a great change was made in  the quality of tie beer manufactured.

But the reason  ���������was not so much because he had fallen  under the peculiar spell of Brother  Packard���������a spell not likely to be very  potent with a man of'Hli. all's temperament ami training���������aa because he had  fallen under a spell of much subtler  and more insidious kind, the spell of a  woman's heart.  For three months l_Iijah had beer,  paying somewhat regular calls at the  home of Joshua Kipperton. a prosperous farmer just outside ihe. village;  and although the excuse always was  that 'Li.e had to seo Josh about some  horses or colts, there was a suspicion  abroad that tho horse-dealer had more  pressing business with Josh's daughter  Agnes than with Josh. AVhen Elijah  cumc* to the revival meeting with Agues the very next night after she had  gone up to the penitent bench the  tongue of every local Grundy was set  a-wagging. And when he came a second time and a thir!. and a fourth,  1. rincanville was ready for an immediate announcement of the wedding-  day.  Agnes was a good girl, and sincere  In her profession of a change of heart,  as In her desire, that such a change  might come to the big, cheerful, kind  mg.   with every puff the sound of | The Isle of the Lush Bananas.  breaking glass added a discordant aa- -w_._,__ ~~....._t_._..  these revival rneetin's?   The boys say]   but  worldly   fellow   whose   attentions  you've   been   there   four   nights   hand-  runnin'���������they seen you goin' In."  'Llje turned with an exclamation ot  disgust and denial���������Just one sharp,  summarizing expletive. Then he  cracked a fifty-cent piece on the top of  the pine bar with enough force to mark  the soft wood with an impress of the  milled edge.  -Step *up, boys," he said, with a wave  to the arm-chair philosophers; "the  drinks are on me this time."  But Elijah Todhunter, the horse-  buyer and all-round sporting man, took  a. lemon soda .while his friends disposed of sterner stuff. Then, without  offering a word of explanation of the  reports on which the jovial servant of  Bacchus had based his Jests, Elijah  turned the conversation to other matters���������the price of horseflesh, the re-  coids of Blinker and.Beefer as prize- j  winners at the bench shows, "Bud" ���������  Burnslde's homing, pigeons, Job En-  Oeld's new silo, and a score of other  subjects of current comment in the village and township.  Having talked "and listened with  equal intelligence, till there seemed to  be nothing more to talk about, the  horse-buyer -asked Jerry Pull for the  latest Toronto paper, and, pulling a  chair up to the fire, sat down and  busied himself with his pipe and the  last night'3 news.  "Not for a dozen years had slow and  sleepy Duncanvilie been so disturbed  as by the union revival services now  tfoing on in -the dingy old agricultural  ball���������the largest assembly room ln the  place. The Rev. Winterburn Packard,  professional evangelist, had fairly  ticked the town into a consciousness of  cin. Duncanvilie was not in the ordin-  ery sense a bad town���������just a common  country village, with six stores besides  the post-O-Rce.-a bank, a woollen mill,  two taverns, a blacksmith and wagon-  chop, an* annual fair, a railway, and  e market. Its people were much the  eame as people in most other country-  places���������somewhat superficial and conventional in their standards of conduct,' addicted just a trifle to gossip  and uncharitable speaking, possibly  too prone to measure merit by success,  yet on the whole a kindly disposed,  right-intentioned, temperate, clean-living and honest people.  But since the advent of the Hev.  Winterburn Packard, Duncanvilie had  teemed, in the eyes of many of its  own best.cllizens. to be a very stronghold of sin'*and uncleauness. It was as  though the town had been rocked from  s nethermost foundations by an  earthquake shock. No gaping fissures  bad as yet appeared in the thin earth-  ITind on which Duncanvilie, in common  ���������with other human habitations, stands  suspended o'er bottomless lakes of fire.  But the very smell of brimstone was  in the air. and it would have occasioned  oo surprise to the local saints had the  eolld earth dissolved at any moment  end precipitated the whole of sinful  creation into the pit of everlasting torment. Revivalist Packard had figuratively taken Duncanvilie by the scruff  of the neck and dangled it over the  bad place till its garb of mere respectability was singed on its quivering  body and it yelled for mercy. Everybody was taking the shortest cut to the  penitent bench with the least delay  practicable. Steady church-goers, self- j  confessed worldlings. e������en the few  open scoffers of the village���������both sexes j  and all ranks and conditions of people t  ���������'���������old men and babes and loving  trlends and youths and maidens gay" ,  ~s*we-r a" being" ni s'n t i j**sa t h ered-i n to ---th s*f  "fold.    Not since  the  postmaster's son |  she  had  accepted   and   to  whom   she  yielded a secret homage of affection.  "I'm sorry, Agnes," he said to her,  .as tliey went home from one of the  meetings. "I wish I could catch this  'epidemic of religion just to oblige you.  But I can't, and there's an end of it.  I don't doubt the meetings are doing-  good, and of course everybody who  says so means to lead a better life. I  mean to do so myself. I can see where  I've made mistakes. (But I haven't  been intentionally bad. and I can't get  up and say I'm a desperate sinner and  feel that I'm lost, arid all that. Honest now, I can't. There's no use of  making a hypocrite of myself, Is  there?"  Not very deep nor very clear thinking on the momentous question, and  yet difficult to meet aiid answer. Agnes had too much tact to attempt to  ���������argue with 'Llje, but she made him  promise to go again with her the following night, and she trusted Inwardly that his eyes might yet be opened,  as so many others' had been.  Agnes had her own plan for rousing  'Lije from what seemed his spiritual  lethargy. A* very rash and. ill-considered plan it was, but In .the state of  emotional fervor and religious self-  hypnotlzatlon to which the good people  of Duncanvilie had wrought themselves, many rash and ill-considered  plans were looked upon by their authors as flashes of light from on high  and special dispensations of Divine  wisdom. Agnesbelieved that her project had come to her from a source  beyond her own intelligence. And she  proceeded to carry it out with all the  zeal and conviction of a chosen instrument.  She had already spoken to the re-  viva'llst about 'Llje, and he of the eloquent tongue and tea,-biscuit complex-  Ion had _a_ _ few earnest but unavailing words with the big. straightforward man in one of the after-meetings.  Now, she would ask Mr. Packard to  ���������make a different move���������a flank attack  that should take 'Llje unawares In his  entrenchments.  So next morning she called on the revivalist and had a long heart-to-heart  talk with him���������one of those confidential outpourings in which overwrought  women delight to indulge with persons  of the pastoral profession, over their  own "experiences" or the spiritual progress of loved ones.  It  was  in    the    after-meeting  that,  night   that   the   assault   so *'��������� cnrefullj-  planned    was    delivered.     Excitement  had  now  reached  such  a  pitch   that  nearly everyone stayed for these after- |  meetings.   Agnes Kipperton was there, !  and beside her sat Elijah Todhunter.    j  After five minutes of silent prayer, l  "Just  As  I Am"  was sung,  and  then |  the workers commenced moving rouni j  through the assembly, engaging in per- j  sonal exhortation of those who had not '  yet professed a conviction of sin.   Ag- !  nes was one of* these workers, and as i  soon as  she  had  left  Elijah's  side  to  take her share of the duty in hand, the  Rev.     Winterburn    Packard     walked  straight down from  the platform and  seated  himself  in  her place  to  "talk  'Llje over."  But the horse-dealer was obdurate.*  so Brother Packard left him and pursued his tactics elsewhere.  Then, in the prayer that followed  this part of the work the revivalist  singled out 'Llje for special and pointed reference. He did not mention him  to the Almighty by name, but described him In such terms that the  *eriest-du!Iard=knG-.v^w*ho^was=tneant,-  and   with   a  detail   that  could  scarce  companiment to the growing crackle  and roar of the flames. All Duncanvilie was in the street as soon as the  bare essentials of dress could bo  thrown on.  The bank building was three storeys  high and of brick���������one of the proudest  structures ln the village. The "junior"  roomed in the second storey, and there  - the fire had originated in the explosion  of a lamp left burning for the night, ln  the third storey lived Judd, the carpenter, his wife, who swept out the  bank and "made up" the junior's room,  and their three young children.  No one who has not seen a midnight  fire   in   a  small   community  unaccustomed to such casualties and with only  the  most  primitive  resources  of protection at hand,- can form a true conception of the excitement that attends  such    an    experience.      Duncanvilie s  bank stood slightly apart from other  buildings, but owing to its height and  the   headway   the    fire    had   already  gained,   much  property  might  be  involved.   Men dashed madly about collecting buckets and palls of -all sorts  with which  to  form a line from the  river; others wero breaking in a stable  door to get out the antiquated hand-  engine that had done service at three  Ares in a dozen years.    But above all  the babel, and adding a piercing note  of  tragedy  to  the  calamity,  rose  the  shriek of a  mother's voice bewailing  the fate of one of her children.and beseeching   someone   to   enter   the   fiery  furnace and rescue her darling.   With  that  voice  in   their  ears    the- motley  crowd stood helpless, oppressed with a  vast  horror.    The  father  and  mother  and two children were safe;  a third,  ���������overlooked  in   the  scramble  for  exit,  remained  in   the  doomed building,  ln  the calm slumber of innocence.   Father or mother would gladly have gone  in to save the missing lamb or perish  with  it,  but  strong  hands held   them  back.  "AVill no one volunteer?" called the  Rev. Winterburn Packard, pacing up  and down before the crowd, waving his  arms toward the burning building and  anon covering'his pale face with his  hands as if he "himself would go, did  his strength suffice or could he shut out  the impending fate ot any who might  enter that stronghold of fiame. "For  the love, of God and the price, of ar.  immortal soul, will no one volunteer?'  So easy Is it* to call others to great  deeds, so hard to step into the breach  oneself.  But a cry arose from someone at the"  ���������back of the crowd���������a cry taken up  instantly and swelled to a mighty  cheer. At one of the third storey windows appeared in the glare of the  forked flames and the reek of smoke a  man, with a terrified child clinging  about his neck. '  "A blanket!" he shouted���������his voice  coming as from a great distance beyond the Are. "Quick, a stout blanket  arid six strong men. Here, below!"���������  pointing to a space where there seemed  to be a "providential opening in the  draft of up-curling fire.  Seconds seem like hours, minutes  like,days, In such, a fearsome case. But  at last the blanket was brought,* and  six men, firmly grasping Its edges,  braced themselves with might and  main. Then there was a little struggle  piteous to behold at that upper window, the child clinging to its fellow-  being ln danger, seeming almost to  prefer the ordeal of fireto the perils of  the hideous plunge. But the little  arms were, unlocked; the tender, firm  and reassuring touch of a master-  hand was imparted���������perhaps the brave  word spoken; and down through the  hot, red-lltten air shot the small body,  straight into the well-held blanket,  bouncing up again with the resiliency  of'a rubber ball, hut caught in stronc.  eager arms���������terrified, screaming, but  unhurt! And another cheer���������a cheer  half sigh, half sob���������went up from te*_.  ���������muititude.  For a. time���������how long, who of tha *  waiting throng coukl say?���������the mar-  disappeared from the window. Then  he came back. Ail egress except by  the dread drop from thirty feet above  the flinty street had been cut off. The  flames were licking along the upper  cornice and framing the windows  where he stood with mouldings of fire.  "Can you hold it, hoys? It's my only  chance!" he shouted, above the roar,  to the men with the blanket.  "Courage! We'll stay with you!"  came the answer, as they gathered  once more where the dry, sickening  heat seemed to parch the very blood  In their hands and faces. The blanket  was stretched. "Ready!" signalled  one of the men.  But Just then a dull, muffled roar  rose   from   the   burning   building   and  A millionaire and a beggar suffered  ���������shipwreck and both were cast upon  an uninhabited island .wfflch abounded in 'bananas. The millionaire,  whose property wa.s ali in railroads, did not lose a cent by the  shipwreck, .but the poor beggar saved  only the shirt on his back���������which, indeed, was the only shirt he had had  for longer, than he esuld remember.  When they found themselves on the  shore the millionaire nodded affably to  the foeggar and said: "I don't remember  to have seen you before, but I suppose  you must  have been on  the steamer.  Second cabin?"  "No, stowaway.   It's cheaper."  "Ah, yes.   I hadn't thought of that.  Well,  this shipwreck Is something of a  leveler,   and   we   might    as    well   be  friendly and see how we can help each  other until we are rescued.   What can  you do?"  "I?   Oh, I can beg."  "I'm  afraid  that in  the  absence of  Inhabitants that is  a useless  accomplishment,"  replied  the millionaire.  "Well, what can you do, yourself?"  "I can' buy,'' said the millionaire.  "Umph!" said the beggar.  "A very just remark," said the millionaire.    "I see  that we are  on  the  same footing and  the outlook is discouraging."  "That is just where I fail to agree  with you," said the beggar. "For the  first time since I can remember I can  live without begging. See, tha island  is full of bananas."  "But," said the other, "bananas don't  agree with me."  "You should have bought a better digestion when your money had purchasing power. Still, if you don't like  fruit, there are fish. I see them leaping in the cove there, and we can make  fire with your spectacles for a burning-  glass."  "But fish almost poison me. I never  eat them."  "Well, ypu .are "difficult. 'But there Is  a small bird."  "I never eat them without the accompaniment of a cold bottle. Still, I  suppose I could go a small bird If you  caught it and cooked it."  The twain spent months on. the is-  . land and ��������� the beggar grew fat while  the millionaire .became as thin as an  ascetic.  One day, while the millionaire  watched the beggar making a, meal of  weak fish and fried bananas he said: "I  would give air my millions (if I could  get at them) for your appetite."  "There have been times," said the  'beggar, "when I'would .have jumped  at your offer, but as we seem out of  the track of steamers I won't even  consider it. And to tell the truth, I  don't believe 'that all your millions  would make these fish any more delicate to my palate nor would seven  millions buy so luscious a banana In-  New York as this that is rrow slipping  over my tongue. But ns for you, if  you could buy my appetite It would  ���������be cheap at any price, for I am happy  and fat and you are starving and sad.  A word of advice.

Twain's   idea  of   a  gentleman   is   "a  kindly,  courteous,  unselfish  man,  who  thlnk3 first not of himself, but of his  ���������fellow-man;   not, one  of   those*'chappies,' who are ln reality the most.sel-  fish men on earth," and he adds: "Take  the men of prominence in the United  States  to-day and  pick out  the  true  gentlemen.    I'll venture that nine out  of ten of them never had a high school  education,  let alone a  college. education.   Why, the flrst gentleman I ever  Knew was an old California miner, who  .ould hardly write his own' name.   He  was  a '.9er,  and  he and  his  partner  had struck It rich in  the early days.  The  old   man   had  neither  chick  nor  child, and he had worked hard all his  lie, and when he did get his money he?  hardly knevvvyhalto, do withjt. ^He  didn't try to jump Into society, or~~to"  push   his   way  with   the  'big  fellows'  there.    He continued  to live with  the  people he had associated with all his  life, and many an act of kindness was  done, many a wandering son and father saved, many a sorrowing woman's  burden lightened and her life brightened   by  an   unknown    donor    whose  Identity, was only known to a few.    It  ���������was   different   with   hla   partner.    He  had   a   wife   and   two  daughters   with  social aspirations,  and  after  a  whols  lot of pushing and hauling and shoving  they landed  in society.    The  expense was too much ot a drain on the  husband's   purse,   and   he   speculated,  with the Inevitable outcome.   He lost  his  entire   fortune  and  shot  himself.  Then it was the true gentlemanlineas  of   the  old   man   showed   Itself.    The  widow and  her daughters had  no one  to  turn   to  but  him,  and  he  did   not  disappoint them.   He saved their home  for  them  when  everything  else   went  under the hammer, and he maintained  them   In  it  in   all   the   regal  style    to  which they were accustomed, although  he still  lived  in  his old  lodgings.    Ha  lived  long enough   to see  both of the  girls   well    married    and    the   mother  comfortably settled  for life.    Then   he  died in a charity hospital In San Francisco.    He  had  spent every penny he  owned   on   the   r-imiiy  of  his  partner.  That Is what  I call a gentleman."  It is difficult to account for the enormous velocity oi some'''birds' flight  when migrating. The northern blue  throat goes at the rate of 540 miles an  hour, flying 4.S00 miles from Egypt to  Heligoland in a spring night of barely  nine hours. Virginian plover fly from  Labrador to North Brazil, 9,000 miles,  without stopping, going at the rate of  636 miles in an hour, and probably  more. Plow can this speed be attained?  "Nature Notes" thinks it is because the  ���������birds resort to great heights, where  the resistance of the air is slight.  Among the most interesliing experiments In telephoning without wires are  those of .Monsieur Ducretet, a French  scientist. He places an ordinary telephonic transmitter In direct communication with) the ground, and at a considerable distance away, on the other  side of some buildings with thick walls  and cellars, ,he has a receiver, connected by one wire to the earth, and  by another wire to a small metallic  sphere let down through an opening  to the floor of tho catacombs beneath  Paris. When words are sipoken into  the transmitter they are heard in the  receiver with muoh greater clearness  than Jn an ordinary telephone. Monsieur Ducretet. is continuing his experiments at increasing distances.  In many farming districts of the  "West the telephone is taking the place  of the newspaper in certain directions.  With the spread of the telephone to  farms has come about what the company calls a "news service."

First the official  Washington time is given, so that  clocks may be regulated, and then  come the weather quotations for the  next twenty-four hours. Market quotations of farm commodities always  follow, so the subscriber In South Dakota knows what his butter sent last  week to New York, Chicago or Boston  sold for that day. This one feature  .alone is changing;the markets. for_ce_r**-_  tain farm products, nnd swinging them,  for instance, from Boston to New York,  and vice versa.

J*_ _ *"  'A great firo was put out with wine in  Southern California recently. It happened that the water had given out.  but thoro was plenty of the fluid usually held in higher esteem. Strange to  eay, the wine proved a very effectivo  Cro extinguisher. ���������-������������������  This incident is described and illustrated in an interesting article in thi.  Scientific American.  The fire recently occurred near tho  town of Wrights, in the Santa Crux  mountains, south of San Franclsoo.  Here the Are was started, as in many  other instances, by an irresponsiblo  rancher who was burning brush. Tha  wind sprang up suddenly, swept tha  (lames into the forest, and in a very  short time a fierce wall of flame was  rushing up the west slopes of tho  Coast Range, carrying destruction before it. The mountains here were covered with a fine growth of old oake.  mazaults and mandrones���������landmarks  ln the country���������which fell like straw  before the destroyer. The walls ot  flame swept to the summit and descended into IJie canyons, following  these rivers of verdure in and out.  rushing on in an ever-increasing vol'  time.  In the pathway of the fire were tho  ranoh and Mare Vista winery of B. FI  Meyer, one of the largest wine-making  establishments and vineyards in Santa  Clara county.    To protect it and tho  tiomies in the vicinity;'the people oftho  surrounding   country    assembled    en  masse,  organized themselves into an  efficient body of Are fighters, and began a campaign in which striking acta  of valor were performed.    It was impossible to stay the flames, and as they,  "went rushing down the canyon toward  the winery, destruction of the.valuable  property seemed inevitable.    Trees in  advance   were  cut  down,   ditches   ot  earth dug, and every expedient known,  to fire fighting of today was tried; but  eo  fierce  were -the  flames  that they,  seemed to leap hundreds of feet Into  the air, bounding in lurid sheets over  thc breaks, and In an incredibly short  time swept down to the winery, ani  ..urrounded  it.    Under  ordinary   circumstances it would have 6oemcd im-  j-vossible to save the building, but tha  band of workers rallied under the intelligent lead of the Meyers, and men  were posted on the roof who poured  streams of water upon every portion.  Young Mr. Meyer was held by ropea  from a window while he used the hose  upon the flames wihich were licking up  the timbers at the base of the building, the heat being so intense that a  6tream had to lie played upon his body.  Tt   was   believed   that   the   winery)  could bo saved, when, without warning, the water gave out.    Some large  trees, which  were dropping in every  direction, had fallen upon the supply  pipes, crushing them in and clogging  the reservoir.   This was an unexpected  catastrophe," but the resources of tha  firo fighters were by no means exhausted, though a desperate expedient waa  resorted to. t i  The owner of the winery gave the  order to attach thc hose to the great  vats of Zlnfandel wine, which were  stored in the cellar, and man the wino  pumps.   This was promptly done.  Four thousand gallons of this wine  was thrown upon the flames in this  way: before the' building was safe,  probably one of the most remarkable-  and successful methods of fighting fire  known. The method was somewhat  expensive, a_. the wine retailed at 50  cents per quart when bottled, ana  $8,000 in wine was used, yet it saved  buildings and machinery worth many,  thousand dollars, and demonstrated  that a Winery has a protective against '  Bre In Its vats if the owner has tha  Wurage to use it  The Social Veneer.

I  A fruit supposed to bear the mark  of Eve's teeth Is one of the many botanical curiosities of Ceylon. The tree  on which It grows Is known by the significant name of "the forbidden fruit,"  or "Eve's apple-tree." The blossom  has a very pleasant scf.-nt, but the  really remarkable feature of the tree,'  the one to which It owes Its name, Is  the fruit. It is beautiful, and hangs  from the tree In a peculiar manner.  Orange on the outside and deep crimson within, each fruit has the appearance of having had a piece bitten out  of.it.

The Smithsonian Institution authorities say that more varieties of poisonous  snakes are found in Arizona than in any  other part of the United States. The  best authority on Arizona snakes is believed to be Graham Peck, who has been  studying them for years.  "No other region in the United States  Is so much of a natural breeding-ground  for the rattlesnake ������3 is Southern Arizona," says Mr. Peck. "The rocks of  the mountains and foothills are of a  heavy yellow and gray color nnd the  soil is so like the hues of a rattler that  a snake can move slowly along and hardly be perceived by a person fifty feet  away. The hot, dry nir and the warm,  sandy earth and the immense quantity  of small birds and ground squirrels in the  mountain canyons and brush all combine to make life for rattlesnakes in this  region one of rare ease aird comfort.  Thero are literally tens of thousands of  rattlers in the sage brush and chaparral  along the edge of Southern Arizona  wastes. They grow to enormous size,  and it is common to read of the capture  Df rattlesnakes five .and six feet long,  With fourteen and fifteen rattles.  "Hog-nose snakes are qujte plentiful  In the mountainous parts of Arizona.  'After all the talk about serpents hissing,  this is the only specimen of the ophidian  family which I have ever heard utter a  sound.  "Many writers on reptiles in America  say that thunder snakes are common in  Texas, New Mexico arrd Arizona. They  are really uncommon in the territories.  They are a prairie reptile and are often  encountered by prairie travelers, especially before and after thunderstorms.  Hashes of lightning and claps of thunder, which are terrifying to bipeds and  quadrupeds, seem to have a charm for  these members of the ophidian family-  Whenever n thunderstorm comes up these  snakes come crawling out of holes, from  behind rocks and rotten stumps and cn-  jov the fun while it lasts.  "The coach-whip is remarkable for its  tremendous length und surprising speed.  It is cream or clav colored, very much  like the hard-baked prairie over which  it glides, is very long and its scales are  arranged in such a manner that they  closely resemble the plaited leather of  a whip. Not endowed with poison, it  has tremendous power of constriction. It  forms its .body into coils which are capable of crushing sheep, dog. and coyote..  When I was in Lower California in 1S00  I wns told by a Mexican peon that he  had a ten-year-old boy squeezed to death  by a eoa eli-whip a few years before. The  man said that on another occasion his  wife was attacked by a coach-whip which  threw its coils about her quicker than  she could sec. She' was too frightened  to do more than scream and fall to the  ground, when her daughter came running up and quickly released her by  merely unwrapping the snS-ke's tail.  Strange as this may seem, it is a very  ���������easy way to release a victim in the  coach-whip snake's grasp, for while the  reptile's constricting powers are abnormal, a child may unwrap the coils by beginning at the tail."  "Do you believe that snakes have tire  power "to charm animals!"  "Yes, there 13 a certain power to fascinate in a snake's eyes and movements.  I saw only the other* day a typical illustration of the power of a snake to fascinate. Over in the pine woods I saw a  ground squirrel fascinated by * a black  gopher snake. The forked tongue darted  out of the snake's mouth almost as regularly and rapidly as the needle of a  sewing machine rises and -falls. The  squirrel seemed to watch it spellbound.  The snake crept slowly nearer. When  the gopher snake was within two or  three inches from thc squirrel it gave a  leap and threw three coils nbout the  .' squirrel. Instantly the spell was gone  The fascination or charm there had been  over the little animal was no doubt broken tire very moment the serpent's coils  were about the squirrel, for the animal  gave three convulsive, terrified chirps and  realized that its death moment had come.  "I believe implicitly that all snakes  have a certain degree of power to fascinate their victims to death. Black snakes,  gopher snakes and racers have the power  to a large degree. Rattlesnakes have the  most fascinating power among all  the  Poisonous; serpents in the south-west,  he,indications of charming among poisonous snakes are deceiving sometimes.  Poisonous snakes fang their prey once  only. The poison does not kill at once.  The victim flutters to a branch, it may  be, or runs a short distance and stops.  The snake watches it. The poison docs  its deadly work, and the bird falls. Anyone who. eomes up, not having seen the  attack, might be readily deceived into  Imagining that if*.was the glance of the  snake and not the poison that caused the  victim to fall."  The Proudest Darkies.  When Rebecca Douglass Lowe was  made president of the Federation of Women's Clubs of America, writes Van  Vlatch in the "Argonaut," the negro  servants of tho Lowe homestead in Atlanta were justly the proudest darkies on  the continent. 'The position to which  tlieir mistress had been elevated was  the highest in the gift of American womankind, and "Mis' Beck" was "suttenly  IT as she was bawn to."  .On the death of Queen Victoria, Mrs.  Lowe cabled the condolences of the women of America to the Prince of Wales,  now King Edward VII. In due time an  official acknowledgment found its way  back to Atlanta by post, nnd was delivered to Itobcrt, the factotum of the*  Lowe household, by carrier,, together  with the customary bulky bundle of official nnd private mail. The big seal at  trneted the attention of Robert, and ex-  cited his interest. Sarah was not good  enough to "tote the mail up to Mis'  Beck that mawiiin1; rro sah! Robert muss  done do it hisself, that mawnin'," and so  he did.  The mistress received the weighty correspondence with accustomed dignity and  nonchalance, and did not even "start"  or turn pale at the great letter which  had impressed Robert so mightily. She  began opening the letters in the usual  manner, not ut all to the satisfaction ol  Robert, and he took tho liberty accorded  to old .servants in t'he Soutii of "interpos-  in'."  "Mis* Beck," said he, "'pears like you  hnd a very iirrportarrt letter in yo' mail  this mawnin'?"  "Yes, Robert."  "'Pears, Mis' Beck, as if it was from  royalty?"  "Yes, Robert, it is from the King of  England."  Robert waited for nothing more, but  hastened down to the servants' quarters  to herald the great news. Mrs. Lowe  thought no more about tlio matter ol  the servant's curiosity until she was out  riding with her daughter, Mrs. English,  in the afternoon, and sut waiting in the  carriage while her daughter did some  shopping.  Andrew was on the box, and took advantage of the opportunity to find out  more about the royal letter than Robert  had been able to tell theni. Using the  before-mentioned privilege of old fumilv  servants in the South, he turned to his  mistress and asked: ".Mis' Beck, Robert  was tellin' us this mawiiin' that you had  a letter from the King er England <.'"���������  mawnin'?"  "Yes, Andrew; Robert spoke true."  "Robert said it was a ver' iinpa",vti.iit  letter, Mis' Beck."  "Yes, Andrew, a very important letter."  This closed the enquiry for some min-  rrte3, but the negro curiosity had not  been entirely satisfied. Turning again to  his mistress Andrew enquired in an undertone suggestive of a wheedling bid  for confidence: "Mis' Beck, 1" s'pose the  King of England is nskin' us to corrre  over and spend the sununah with him?"

Should you get  entangled with one, however, and in such  a way as to bring yourself and it crashing down into the performer's violoncello,  leave all vituperative display to the owner of the instrument.  Don't, when singing, if you are standing behind the accompanist, keep hole! of  his' ears all the time, and seek to indicate your wishes by tugs and jerks. It  diBtracts his attention from the copy.  Don't, during a lullaby or * plaintive  ballad, get up a fierce battle between  Fido and the cat, and never seek1 to divert the company by firing* paper pellets  into the singer's mouth.  Don't, if your emotions are appealed  to by some pathetic little trifle, bellow  or give way to violent grief. If you cannot stifle your sobs by burying your face  in the rug, leave thc room until you have  recovered self-control.  Don't be grumpy and sit brooding in  a corner all the evening because you.  hostess _oes not ask you for a song.

The latest story relative to the methods of President James J. Hill of the  Great Northern Railroad comes from a  Western city in which his line luis car-  .yards and many side-trheks. A prominent citizen of, the pluce desired to have a  subway built to his property. Its"construction involved tunneling under the  trades of the Great Northern. It, seems  that he had experienced somc.delav in  getting the corporation's consent, and so  when President Hill passed th-ough the  city recently the citizen bearded tiro  magnate in his car. "I want this subway bad," Mr. Hill's visitor explained. "T  have petitioned your company, but without getting satisfaction. So I hane come  to you for advice." The railway builder  smiled.

Joseph Jefferson, the veteran actor,  once struck a progressive Western town,  where he was to give a two nights' performance of "Rip Van Winkle." Aftei  the performance on the first night, Jefferson went back to his hotel, and there  he found waiting the most prominent  merchant of the town, a wholesale manufacturer of bedsprings.

Perhaps the most extensively traveled  lady in the world is Mrs. Crossley of Indianapolis. She is now preparing to  make her twenty-first voyage round the  wor'id. She has crossed the Atlantic no  fewer than seventy times, has made  twelve journeys to the top of the Pyramids, and has visited every town of note  in Europe, Asiu, Africa and America. All  this amount of traveling, too, she has  crowded into eighteen years, nnd she  possesses n wonderful collection of curiosities from every quarter of the globe.  The fact that the birth of Marconi has  been found registered in Bologna has  cut short the claim of other Italian  towns to this distinction. Florence, however, has discovered that the inventor  went to school there between his sixth  and tenth years. There has also been  discovered an aged lady, Signorn Luisa  Cavallero, who taught young Marconi  how to read, and she says that she was  obliged to punish him many times be-  enuse he wns very naughty, arrd since he  has become a great man her conscience  has severely reproached her. "Fancy  punishing a genius!" she exclaimed. "At  the same time," she added in extenuation, "he was never able lo learn anything by. heart. That was impossible  with him."  Perhaps the most interesting gift to  the Pope on his Pontifical jubilee was an  ancient clock, in the form. of a planisphere, dating from 17.25. It was constructed at Plaisanc-e by the mathematician Barnnrdo -Fat-mi,, who'presented it  to the wife of Philip H.. of Spain. The  planisphere gives the hours and the minutes, according to the Italian and Spanish style, tire length of (lays and nights,  according.to the seasons, the daily position of the sun according to the signs  of the. zodiac; solar, and lunar eclipses,  the real seasons and the seasons according to astronomy.

So many quick retorts are ascribed to  the ''Autocrat of the Breakfast Table"  that it sometimes seems as if the witty  poet could scarcely have taken time to  eat or sleep.

"Only one more question," said Ttus-  sel.'as he.took the proffered weed. "You  ���������laugh at the way railway travelers  act in these little affairs. Now, how  would you act? Suppose a fellow were  suddenly to put a pistol to your cheek  and Insinuate a desire for your watch:  No one is near. You are alone In the  carriage.   What would you do?"  "I'd knock the -pistol out of his hand,  while  pretending   to   comply  with   hl.������  demand, and  throw him out  the win-  . dow after it."  Cnruthers said this quietly and determinedly, and Vtussel knew him loo  well to suspect braggadocio, so he only  laughed lightly at his companion's emphatic reply and proceeded to envoluj*  hlmself In clouds of smoke.  "Well," said the tall man, locking at  his watch, and starting up; "I must be  going. The express starts at seven-  forty-five, and I've to stop at a couple  of places before making the station."  And he rang for his bag and overcoat.  "Now, Gerald Caruthers," said his  companion, as Gerald was being helped  into his coat, "remember what you  have told me. If I hear of any attempt  at train robbery on the seven-forty-flve  express I shall not write to you, but  shall at once have tho track examined,  and the body, of the robber discovered  and Interred. I suppose you will be  willing to do that much for your victim, won't you?"  "Oh, certainly," laughed Caruthers,  and the next moment he had wrung  Russel's hand and had gone.  At the station he secured a first-class  ticket, and then set about to'find an  empty compartment if possible. As  luck would have It, the second coach  he looked Into was unoccupied, and h.  quickly stowed his portmanteau away  and, settling himself luxuriously in the  the biggest lie would get the dog.

An Irishman, who, much to his wife's  sorrow, had got into  the company of  one would come in to Interrupt, with  the usual traveler's commonplaces and  platitudes, the nap he had in prospect.  He looked at his watch; only one minute remaining till .train time, and already he heard the doors being banged  td as the guard went his rounds.  And then���������then, just as he was putting his watch back into his pocket  wilth a breath of relief, the door of the  Held a Winning Hand.

The rcr.!  estate agent wad caught short on some  investments of his own and his client's,  and it was decided that he and the Archbishop must lu'.steir at once to New  York, where they had moneyed friends  who they expected would help them out.  The reverend gen I Ionian suggested that  down before a little old man, who Insisted upon fitting around his neck a  meat prodigiously high and stiff colli'*'..

His persecutor coolly continued  traveled ou the Sabbath, as it was con-. ,to fit on the collar, nnd finally, having  trary to the Scriptures.

Journey?  | He slipped his fingers into his waistcoat pocket for his watch. Then, with  an exclamation of surprise, he ralwct  himself quickly to his feet and somewhat weakly stood there, feeling for  the handsome hunting cas* which ha  could find nowhere. 11 took Mm but a  minute to realize this, and also that  the gold cuff-buttons he had worn ana  his diamond scarf-pin w.iv gone, and  that a curious stone-studded ring had  disappeared from the little finger ot  his left hand.  They all had gone; hut where? a:  sudden recollection of the old, bent  man who had been his traveling companion made him peer closely into tha  corner in which that figure had heea  curled when he last saw him. Eut tha  corner was empty now.  As Caruthers' glance moved quickly  over the opposite seai, however, ona  object caught his c-ye. He picked It  up. It was a handkerchief, Innocent of  any markings, but smelling strongly,  as he Instantly noticed, of chloroform.  The pungent odor told Caruthers all  he needed. It was a complete confirmation of the theory which had flashed!  upon him at the first. He had been  robbed, and In all likelihood by tha  little old man who had been his companion.  Caruthers pressed his face agilnst  the "window. He wa.s familiar with tho  country through which the train waa  passing, and he soon s*nw where he  was. The express was fifty miles out  of  the  metropolis,   and    by  schedule  must have made a stop at R , about  ten miles back. It was there, he decided, that the thief had got out. The  next stop would be made some twenty-  five miles farther on. and he would  have to wait until then to communicate the knowledge of his loss. So ha  arranged h'rr..el_ as comfortably aa  possible and began to consider how ha  could most quickly recover the articles  which had heen taker, bj- the robber  he ha*d not thrown out of the -window,  and whether he could prevent the news  of the robbery from spreading so that  he should not receive the taunts of  Toppy Russel. try telegraph or otherwise, upon this doubly trying experience.  As soon as the guard had opened tha  door of his carriage at the next station, half an hour later, Carulhera  Jumped down, and, dashing Into tha  telegraph office, quickly despatched *&  statement of the facts to the chief ot  police at _. .   His message ofCere.1  a generous reward for the apprehension of the rascal and the recovery ol  ���������the stolen articles, with the least possible publicity.  Two hours later, arrived at his des-"  tlnatlon, he left the train, took a hansom to police headquarters, and notified them that a despatch addressed In  his name might be received there from  R���������������������������   If such a despatch'-did come lt  -was to be sent to the B  hotel, ha  ordered. Then he was driven to thm  hotel, and, having engaged a room,  turned in and quickly Tell asleep.  It was seven o'clock In the morning***  when he was awakened by a knock oa  the door of his room, and a telegram  was handed him. It was from the police at R , and ran as follows:  "Have got thief, and recovered all  articles. Thief dUrruised. Young main.  Think he Is old hand at business. Cora,  municater* at once."  Caruthers sent the servant doubt*  quick for a morning paper, and, having satisfied himself that the n������W3 0*  the robbery and of the capture of th*  thief had at least not gained circulation outside of R , he dressed himself leisurely. Then he ate- a comfortable breakfast, lit a cigar with the utmost satisfaction, and Ft roi led down  to police headquarters.  To his surprise he found another despatch from R awaiting him ihcrow  He read:  "Come andj;et me out of this.   I was  "���������fie-brd"~~Trian=*who~ traveled*-with-you���������  and stole your things.   I wanted to se*   .  you throw me oul of the window, -t   *  acknowledge the corn.    Come quickly.

Caruthers read the message a second  time, and then he telegraphed to thm  chief of police at R :  "Hold thief. Dangerous man. Pay  no attention to his story. Be with you  to-morrow. "G. CARUTilEIiS."  It was a* woebegone nnd Irate specimen Which Caruthers saw when th*  'dangerous man*' was led forth from a  cell at the police station at R  next  day.

Sueh is our wish, we want  only to do ns others and not to be  attacked when we do not attack. Our  priest will answer to the charges  hi-ought against our church,, if necessary, we only require that hereafter all  religious questions may be left aside  when 1 hey hint, (be feelings of our  neighbour. Wo hope that our position will be taken into consideration  and that nil shall be recognized equal  in duties as well as in rights for the  pence and happiness of our town.  1'*. Lrirdou, F.
