(From Our Own Currcupuiiilent.)  n Vancouver. Nov. 24.��������� Joseph Martin has laid an information foreriininal  libel against J. G. Field-Johnson, it  veal estate agent of this city, in respect  of a letter which appeared under the  norrr do plume "Siseiuen" in the  "Ledger" of the 17th instant. Several  statements in the letter are objected  to, tho most important being a paragraph  reading:  "This man was ejected from the  Manitoba Government by .Mr. Green-  way not so much for political misconduct tis for doing that which no  honorable man would be guilty of."  The complaint, was laid before- J. A.  Russell, Police Magistrate, and Martin  claims that the statements made are  "exposing him to public hatred, contempt und ridicule." His solicitors  state that he is determined to fight  the matter to the bitter end. There  were stories round during the 1000  election about mysterious early morn-  'ng visits paid by Mr. Martin to Great  Northern officials in Winnipeg but no  one took particular notice of theni.  If I remember rightly N. F. Huge!,  late of Winnipeg, fathered the statements Imt of course nothing is known  upon what Mr. Johnson's allegations  are based and the impending prosecution is creating no little excitement.  A good many hold-ups have taken  place here recently and several arrests  made. Two men, one "Terrible" Reagan the prize lighter, and Griffiths  have been committed for trial. Another pugilist, Kid Chamberlain, was  discharged for want, of evidence.  famous by Ada Rehnn and shows  Shakespeare 111 his best. The plot  deals.*as the title suggests, with the  tinning of this termagant of a woman  by Petrtichio. His love for her, however, is apparent all through the action  but it is disguised under seeming  roughness until, to use the vernacular',  he "makes her dance to his music,"  which he . literally does. The play  abounds in witty sayings aiid laughable action and will be a great surprise to those who have only seen  Shakespeare's well known tragedies  and comedies of 11 somewhat stately  nature. The play will he preceded by  a curtain raiser "The Turquoise."  Of "Richelieu," to ho produced on  Friday, it is unnecessary to say anything.

HICHBINDERS  SUSPECTED  THE SUCCESSFUL  HOSPITAL BALL  Of. the Murder of Charlie Sing-  at Steveston���������Satisfaction at  Re-election of Hon. Charles  Wilson.  (From Our Own Correspondent.)  Vancouver, Nov. 21.���������The murder  of Charlie Sing, at. Steveston, is still  engiging the attention of both the  ^local.and^provinciaLpolice.^JTtJvilLJie-  remeinberedthat he accused the secret  organization known as the Highbinders of threatening his life and later  investigation has shown that he informed A. W. Mcintosh, chief of  police at Steveston, of almost the  exact hour of his execution. It was  at first thought the Japanese had  something to do with it hut it is now  practically- certain that they... are  innocent although one member of that  race has been formally placed under  arrest in addition to the two. Chinese  mentioned in previous correspondence.  Provincial Superintendent JHussey has  taken the caso up vigorously and discovered that Charlie Sing was, with  out doubt, a member of the Highbinder organization. The excuse given  for his killing is that he gave evidence  to the police that resulted in a big  successful gambling raid on Dupont  street here, but that is deemed to be  merely an excuse. It is thought that  there was some other reason that, up  to the present,has not been discovered.  The Chinese have, however, taken  the bull by the horns and commenced  tlie prosecution of the Jap, Tumasaki,  for the murder. ��������� He was before Stipendiary Magistrate Alexander yesterday and today but the hearing was  adjourned for a week, Mr. C. B. Mac-  Neil), acting for the private prosecution, stating he was unable to produce  his witnesseg. The friends of accused  -state they will produce .evidence to  .startle Chinatown when the bearing  is resumed and state they will conclusively prove the deed was done by  Chinamen hired by tbo Highbinders.  They do not think Taniasaki will be  even committed for trial.  Great satisfaction is felt in tho city  at the re-election of Hon. Charles  Wilson by a largely increased majority and "the best elements of both  ���������shades of political opinion agree that  his return will much assist in restoring stable government.. The business  community, in particular, evidently  gave him practically unanimous support.  Held Friday Evening in the  Opera House ��������� Supper was  Particularly Good���������A Financial Success.  The Annual Bull held in the Opera  House last Friday under the auspices  of the Ladies' Hospital Guild was  even a more pronounced success than  previous ones and the ladies are to be  'lieal-til^coiTgro^  ance was not finite its large as last  year but in other respects everything  was splendid. A new supper" room  had been provided by Manager Tap  ping and full advantage was taken by  tlic'lndies of this improvement. The  supper was under the supervision of  Mesdames Kilpatrick and Clark who  were ably assisted by Mrs. Urqtihiu-t.  Music was supplied by the Independent Band and supper extras were  ������layed by Mesdames McCarter and  litigate, Miss Cliffe and Messrs. Kirk  and Smythe. The floor was in first  class condition and all present enjoyed  themselves immensely. Many visitors  were present, among them being Miss  Richardson, of Kamloops; Messrs. M.  Carlin and H. G. Parson, of Golden;  Mrs. Ludgate, of Arrowhead; "Jas.  Taylor, of the steamer Rossland and  Capt. Bacher, of Nakusp. Mr. XV. R.  Beattie, of the Arrowhead Lumber Co.  atoned for his absence by a donation  of $10.  Special mention must be made of  the supper, to which the ladies had  devoted particular attention. All the  delicacies of the season were provided  and full advantage was taken of the  kitchen etc.. attached to the new supper room. We regret exigencies of  space prevent our referring at length  to the ladies' costumes which were  extremely beautiful. It is understood  that financially the ball was all that  could be desired.  Cameron ��������� Grant.  There was a pretty home wedding  at the residence of Mrs. H. A. Brown,  Victoria road, on Tuesday evening  when JErwin A. Cameron, of Sandon,  was united in marriage to Miss Jennie  Grant, daughter of Mr. P. R. Grant,  of South Branch, Glengarry, Ont. The  bride-groom is an ex-alderman of  Finch County, Out., and for three  years has filled the same position in  Sandon, of whicli thriving burg he is  one of the most progressive citizens.  The nuptial knot was tied bv Rev. W.  C. Calder, of this city. Two brothers  of the bride, Messrs. Duncan and  Donald Grant, of Silverton, were  present at the ceremony and Miss  McRiie. of Revelstoke, acted as bridesmaid.

Bennett Executed ��������� Mayor  and Aldermen Fined.  Small Blaze.  There was a small blaze at the residence of J. J. Porter, McKenzie  n.vetriie, about 8 a.m. yesterday caused  by a defective Hue in the upper storey.  The lire brigade was promptly on  bund and prevented much damage  being done. The loss, about $200, is  fully covered by insurance- in corn-,  panics represented by Lewis Bros, and  the necessary repair** were proceeded  witli as soon as the fire was extinguished.  Mining Association.  A meet ing of the Executive of the  Revelstoke branch of the Provincial  Mining Association was held in .the  Library building on Saturday afternoon when matters effecting the  association were discussed. It wa.s  decided that an effort be made to  increase the membership this fall and  winter and it is likely that fortnightly  meetings will be held when discussions on mining and mining laws will  take place. W. M. Brown, a member  of the Provincial Executive, intimated  his intention of being at Kamloops on  Monday, the 23rd inst., where the,  Provincial Executive meets.  Visiting Officials*  " Messrs. Win. Whyte, assistant to  the President of the C.P.R., and J. S.  Dennis, Land Commissioner for B. C,  spent Thursday last in this vicinity as  mentioned in our issue of that date.  Thev visited Arrowhead, in company  witli J. D. Sibbald, of Sibbald & Field,  local land agents, and expressed themselves as greatly pleased with the  progress of both this city and the  sawmill industry at Arrowhead. There  are very, few lots unsold in the coming  town at the end of the South branch  Taming of the Shrew.  Shakespeare, for once in his life,  became practically farcial when writing "The. Taming of the Shrew." This  is a rollicking comedy and shows how  superexeellent dramatic talent can be  allied with a keen sense of humour.  The preseritation of this play on  Saturday night by Harold Nelson  should possess a particular interest,  also, as it received its initial production at his hands in this Province, at  Kamloops, during his previous tour.  Katbarina, thc shrew, is a part made  The first incursion of Revelstoke  Aerie", Fraternal Order of Eagles, into  the realm of public cnterlfiinrnent was  tin unqualified success. The peculiar  character of the invitations, a summons under the hand of the Prime  Kangaroo, to appear at a Kangaroo  Court, was a decided novelty in the  city and many wera on the tip toe of  expectation to see how the new Court  would deal with" the multiplicity of  humourous charges to be brought  before it. It is safe to say that when  ^the^Eiiglejs^hpJd^anoihetpublic^sociiil  session only the most important business will keep those invited away.  As   the   commission     creating, the  court stated the intention was to deal  out justice or injustice in any old way  the officials might deem fit.   They certainly   carried   out this part of "their  instructions.   The officials were:  Prime Kangaroo���������E. G. Burridge,  Goose-quill Kangaroo���������H. Cooke.  Prosecuting   Kangaroo ��������� J.    Theo  Wilson.  Executioner���������J. E. McLean.  Mephistophcles���������A. M. Hyatt.  Gaoler   Kangaroo���������Theo.   J.   Wad-  man.  The platform was well decorated foi  the occasion, the most important  features being the blood red table of  the Court and the sable, execution  stand and block. Only one victim  received the supreme sentence, in the  person of J. W. Bennett, but the  Mayor was very near it. The Judge  was arrayed, de rigour, as a member of  the Supreme Court bench and the  other officials in gorgeous uniforms  typical of their exalted positions.  No one was exempt from the erratic  prosecution and each charge from that  against J. W. Bennett, for not leaving  his deposit in the Treasury as he knew  the Province was hard up, to the  Mayor and several aldermen,for allowing the lights, to go out in the afternoon, was received with shouts of  laughter by the" large audience and  taken in good part by the unfortunate  victims. One of the accused, G. S.  McCarter, brought evidence of bis  guilt with him. He was charged with  having too much dog and fetched  some 200 lbs. of it into court.  In addition to the court there were  bountiful refreshments and a good  musical entertainment provided.  Among those taking part in the latter  were Bros. Cooke, Aitken and Wilson  and Messrs. Humphreys, Burk, Crick,  Dolan, Bennett and Roy Smythe.  "God Save the King" brought an  excellent evening's fun to an end  shortly after midnight.  (Special to Thk Heiiai.0.)

Powell, Private Secretary. Admiral Bickford and officers of the  Fleet and Col. Grant, R. E., and his  staff were also in attendance. Both  downstairs and the gallery were  crowded with visitors, hundreds being  unable to obtain admission. The local  militia supplied the guard of honour.  Premier McBride received an ovation  on entering the legislative chamber.  Tliat the Government has been  strengthened through the honest desire of the masses for political peace is  evident on all sides. . There ure some  surprises apparent for practical politicians. ..

To all outward appearances he had recovered his self-control, yet if anyone  could have looked into his soul it would  have been as easy to see that he was  completely unstrung as it is to,see tho  waves running high just after a storm  is over.

St. Malachie, Dorchester Co., Que.,  Sept. 12.���������(Special).���������A medical case  of particular interest, especially to  women, is causing much talk here.  Mrs. James Kinsclla suffered from  Kidney Disease, whicli so affected her  that she could not sleep and she was  obliged for two summers to pass her  nights sitting in a chair.*To-day she  is practically a well woman. Interviewed regarding her cure she said:  "I had a pain in my right hip, in  the hack and was swollen all down  that side of the abdomen. I could  not sleep at night and I was obliged  to sib up in a chair for two summers.  "Reading of cures by Dodd.s Kidney Pills I bought .one box. That gave  me such relief that I continued to use  them. They did me a world of good  and now I can go to bed like other  people.

William Haddon looked upon  the ground and smiled to hlm.self,, Jhere  was nothing���������absolutely nothing, to recall the affair of thc afternoon, whlcis  was of so little consequence to most people, yet was so fraught with emotion to  him. He turned nnd walked slowly back  to the house he had left five miles behind him loss than a short hour ago.  "JEeogh, I'm tired." He dropped into  ������. chair, stretched himself, and yawned.  With an effort he pulled himself together  rind got up."   -   --'--^ ��������� '  "I shall go to bed," he thought, and,  taking up a candle from the table, he  lighted it and went into his room. He  sat down on the side of the bed and  passed his hand wearily over his forehead and his eyc3. Once again he yawned,  and stretching himself he leaned hack  on the pillow. -  -  ��������� ��������� ������������������  ������������������Eeogh, thal's good," he murmured to  himself. "I'll re3t for five minutes before  I undress myself." He raised his feet on  to the bed, kicked off his shoes, stretched  his tired body, smoothed out tho furrows of his troubled brain, and a rapturous languor crept over him. He pulled  up a light silk nig that lay. at the foot  of the bed, covered himself with it, and,  making up his mind that the next minute he would get up and go properly to  bed, he fell asleep.  In his sleep his brain, set free from the  imprisonment of his will, traveled backwards through the events of the day.  He saw himself sitting in This room administering justice to the native prisoners brought before him, sifting the little  grains of truth out of the plentiful cha'ii  of lies as each sitfe outlied the other.  *: He'saw'himself settling down to hear  the ense of Ram Koosh Basha. Once  more he heard the Indian's passionate  threat of vengeance, and once more he  gazed on the dark face distorted wilrr  hatred and with vengeance, lie saw reflected, as in a glass, his smile of con-  !tem-pt at the man's threats as the war  ders removed him from his presence. Hi*  saw himself mount his horse and stnn  with his friend for the daily ride inti.  tho country before going home to dinner.  He saw onco more the snake across  the rond, and staTtcd in his sleep. The  next instant ho was as wide awake n.-  rf It were noon instead of miilnirrlil  iThere wns a strange sensation of weigh'  about his feet.  "They must have gone to sleep, In  ���������thought. "I shall have to get up am.  walk about to set the blood circulating  ngain." _ . i     If he could reach the door!  * Before he moved his feet he* looked | But between him and the door was thc  down, and by the light of the candli j thing he feared���������the thing of degrndu-  glimmering through the darknes-* he^saw , iiojlj llie t|,inp** of death.

If he moved forward it.would.be certain death. If he stood where he was it  would be certain death.  Another instant he had bounded up on  to a chest of drawers at the other end of  the room.  Through the darkness he strained his  eyes to try to discern the outline of the  undulating form as he crouched farther  and farthnr from -the edge, up close  against the wall.  . He could not.  Through   the   silence   ho   strained   his  ears  that   he  might  try   to  locate   the  place in which the dread horror spoke its  message of death.  He could not.  The hissing had censed. As he crouched  against the wnll he could feel the blood  drstend his lips, the icy touch of his fingers strike eold lrporr his palms; ho could  hear the life-throb of his heart beat into  his brain.

Was it the undulating hendf  Was it T  No j   there  on  the  floor, by  tha bed,  extended at full length, lay the serpent  from which he hnd managed to escape.  The moonbeam vanished.,  What was that undulating thing thnt  looked so like a serpent in the dark?  He looked again;  a  hand and arm, ;���������  dark-skinned, glistening arm, nnd naked!  Slowly the window opened, softly nnd  gently, without a sound.  "An Indian dog with theft for his incentive I"  William Haddon watched the window  with a new-born interest, heedless for  the moment of the living poison which  lay only a few yards from tho place on  which he crouched.  Slowly tho window opened, still silently, without a sound. A naked foot came  in, a naked log; another foot and leg.  and in another moment, silhouetted  against the sky, William Haddon saw  the face and form of Rnm Koosh Basha.  in his mouth a long, pointed knife of  steel.  Slowly, softly, silently the Indian let  himself down to the floor. From his  mouth he took the knife ln his strong  right hand, and, stooping, he crept down  round the foot of the bed, the knife in  hand, his right arm swaying just as the  snake had swayed, and, lite it, armed  with death.  Slowly, softly, silently the Indian  moved up to the side of the. bed. With  a sudden movement like a flash of lightning the hand struck out. William Had-!  don saw an indescribable suspicion of  light upon the blade, and tho next instant heard it eut its way through the  covering of the bed on whicli he had been  lying.  "The hand of vengeance I "hissed the  man���������"the hand of vongeaneel" And he  stabbed again.  Another instant and a shriek_ cf anguish rent the silence of tho night; a  scream of terror, a scream of pain, a:  scream of horrible awakening to an un-  irr.ngined horror.  A scream, and then another scream.  William Haddon, his every sense alert  to seek out the meaning of the slightest  sound, realized at the very first scream  what had happened. He knew thai in  the darkness the man had stepped upon  the extended body of the snnke lying by*  the bed, and that the creature, terrified,'  perhaps, and seeking to defend itself, or  angry arrd eager to attack, had reared its  head rind struck, 0its loathsome mouth,  ���������tinctured with death, touching the hu-'  man skin with its poisoned,kiss.  , Through the open window tho light  that was not light,- the ghostly ���������radiance  6f tho hidden moon, not concealing yet  not revealing that on , which it shone,  came into the room.  William Hnddon snt with pn-reho.l lrps  and open mouth watching the half-concealed yc6 half-revealed things on the  .'floor by the side of tho bed: the man  writhing in anguish, the serpent wrilhing  In" "triumplC"the *" snake's""Tiody coiled  around the man's leg, lire man's arm  coiled around the snnke.  A scream, another scream.  And through the open window tho  white light of the moon lighted up the  forms with nn unearthly light.  William Hnddon in the shadow, unrepealed by the blnck clothes he wore,  looked down and sa.w the eyes of liam  Koosh Basha. Thc vengeance that had  filled them when last he gnzed upon,  them had died out, and in its place a  flame of terror blazed.  Swiftly the serpent swayed from sido  to side, held in tho Indian's i -invulsivo  grasp ns he strove to keep the swaying  head from striking onee more at his  body. Hoarsely the man's breath came  and went as he writhed in pain, arrd with  his other hand strove lo unwind tho serpent from his thigh.  A minute passed, two minutes passed,  and William Haddon sat transfixed at  the unequnl battle going on beneath his  feet, the battle of the vanquished with  the victor, the battle of thc dying with  death.  ���������A minute; two minutes.  To William Haddon watching it might  have been eternity.  It was eternity.  With a. sudden inspiration the Indian,  still holding the snake's neck with his  right hand, let go its body with his left  and picked up the kirife with which he  hnd sought to kill the nui.ii who had that  day sat in judgment on him, and with a  quick sweep cut oil' the. serpent's head.  "The hand of vengeance!"'he.'cried, ns  the coil unloosed about his leg.  To William Hnddon, at tho other end  of   the   room,   the   last   syllable   of   the  word   came   up   like   a   hiss,   nnd   Barn  Koosh 'Basha: foil back urrronscious.

Only iris  (yes moved as the snake's eyes moved.  Through the eloaed shutters there crime  n glint of moonlight that fo" ncro-is the  room and broke the spell which bound  lib eyes.

It was a 'book of an exceedingly realistic character, written  witli extreme frankness and with intimate knowledge of a certain* kind of  Jewish life���������that is to sny, tho lifo which  is led by orthodox Jews of tho well-to-  do middle class. The principal character  of tho book is a Jewish physician of  great talent who is married to a dull,  fat, affectionate woman who is no companion for him, and who bears him no  children. Dr. Phillips lives ostensibly  the lifo of a popular family doctor, but  nil the time he ������������������> carrying on an intrigue witli a beautiful Englishwoman,  whom he met when she was a governess,  nnd whom ho has installed in a houso of  her own. Tlris dual existence loads to  complications which become moro nnd  moro difilcult, especially when a young  Englishman of good family and of great  attractiveness moots the English girl and,  knowing nothing of her story, falls in  love with her and proposes marriage. A  friend of his in like maimer falls in love  with a young Jewess in the same set,  and rouses the horror of her intensely  orthodox parents. The book throughout  is hard and cynical, but it gives some  wonderfully vivid pictures of Jewish life.  It became known that the author of it  was a wom-an, and it was suspected that  In Dr. Phillips sho had drawn the nor*  trait of a well-known London physician.  Thi3 person waa so incensed, that hc  caused the book to be suppressed by legal moans. Not long after, the novel  was reprinted in this country in a. cheap  edition. It was seen on all the newsstands, and then of a sudden it disappeared. You could scarcely buy a copy  anywhere. Just! what caused this disappearance we cannot sny with certainty; but some years ago in these pnges  we hazarded the conjecture that its suppression was due to the influence exercised by wealthy members of the Jewish  community, to whom some parts of it  were exceedingly offensive. A number of  Jewish publications declared this supposition to be untrue, and so we let it go  nt that. But if you ever happen to come  across a copy bf "Dr. Phillips" in some,  second-hand book-shop, we advise you tc  buy it, for it is a work of exceptional  interest and power, is the "Bookman's"  advice.  "Prank Danby" was a literary disciple  of George Moore, and for a lime, she wains, personal friend. Vor some reason oi  other, however, the two quarrelled, and  Mr. Moore had the exceedingly bad taste  to attack her in the pages of thc Loudor  "Saturday Iieview." To this attack she  made a spirited reply; but she seems tc  have been T.-ithcr disheartened by tin  criticism, and for several years she.  wrote nothing further. Later, however  she published a second novel, called "A  Babe in Bohemia," which passed througl*  several editions in England, but Which  so far as we k.iow, hns never been re  published in this country.

���were not safe from the depredations of

like hawks about the English coasts,
-While it is related that one daring pr-i-

The Chesapeake Bay became the
��� great rendezvous of these privateering
craft, owing to the difiiculty of blockading it, and the city of Baltimore
gained Its early commercial supremacy
and laid the foundation of Its futura
prosperity by the ventures of its mer-[
Chants In this sort of speculation. (
Early in December, 1812, the.-priva-
teer schooner Harpy, one dark' and
stormy night, ran into the harbor of
Baltimore, having successfully avoided
the blockading vessels. She had been
(one on a six months' cruise, having
' sailed from the port of New York; but,
* on her return, finding it closely blockaded sh�� had sought the safer waters
Ot the Chesapeake to make port.
Wliile on her homeward voyage, the
Harpy, during a heavy fog, had got Into
closa proximity to an enemy's brig,
twlthout being aware of it.. The fog suddenly lifting, she had found herself lying-! directly under the guns of a ship
carrying double her. weight of "metal,
flying the British flag. Her own character was well enough told ln her; tall
masts and low, sharp linos; and the enemy had at once opened on her with a
���broadside. The wind favoring, the
commander of the Harpy resolved on a
daring manoeuvre to escape capture or
.'destruction. Bearing; directly down on
the enemy, lie exchanged broadsides,
���then turning away, got considerably to.
the windward before the latter could
tack and again bring her guns to bear.
The Harpy, being very swift, had now
jio difficulty in drawing away from the
pursuing enemy, annoying her In tha
meantime as much as possible with her
Jong swivel gun.
In this little affair; two of the Harpy's
���crew had been killed and several
.wounded; and the flrst duty of the commander, after casting anchor, was to
-get the latter ashore.
Among the wounded crew, was a
"handsome young man, who could

Bide by a Hying bolt from the gun-carriage of the gun he was helping to

of three or four ribs, had received severe Internal Injuries.
He was not yet out of dnrrger*���Indeed,

his removal to the hospital had aggravated his symptoms, and caused tho
surgeon considerable anxiety. His first
words, on reaching the hospital, had
been the inquiry:
"Doctor, how soon can I get out of
this?"       *�����'���.
The surgeon did not reply, but proceeded to examine into his injuries, and
then to recommend to hisasslstant such
measures aa he thought necessary to
better his condition. But ere the surgeon drew away, the young patient
repeated his question:
"Doctor, won't you tell me how soon
I oan get out of this?"
"Why, my dear sir," replied the kind
surgeon, "Judging from your present
condition, you may have to remain
.With us several months."   ,
"Oh, no, no, no," almost moaned the
young man; "it cannot be. Don't deceive me, doctor. Can't you put me on
my feet in a week?"
"Nonsense," replied the surgeon.
"If you are out ln eight weeks, you
iray consider yourself lucky. Now, no
more talking. The less you talk,and

"But I must have the assurance thai
I can leave this place soon���very soon,"
continued the young man. "You " da
not know what depends upon It, "doctor.

The surgeon glanced again at the
White, sunken face, that showed plainly
the traces of deep suffering, and the
large, brilliant eyes, and replied, with a
grave shake of the head:
"I can make no promises, my dear
young sir. You are very badly hurt,
and lt will need a good long rest and
plenty of care to cure you. Of course,
I will do my best for you; but you must
not worry or fret. It will only delay
your cure. If you . have friends you
wish to Inform the attendants will writs
for you. But now, no more words. 1
Btrlctly forbid you saying anything
The young man turned his head away
���with an expression of pain and despair,
and the surgeon passed on In his rounds
of the hospital.
A week passed by, and every day tha
"interesting young patient," as the sur.
geon termed the wounded young sailor
rers, or else they honestly - confessed
that they had no wish to enter the old
house after all the strange occurrences
"It la Just as I feared, Ralph." said
the. lawyer to his son, after returning
from his unsuccessful mission. "This
Infernal trickery has so Imposed upon
the community that lt ls practically Impossible to get anybody to go within
gunshot of the old house. There ls no
other way for it���we must go alone.
And why shouldn't we? I confess I feci
somewhat nervous; but; pshaw! what
is there to be afraid of? Suppose we
should run across old Crum or some
other mischievous fellow there? We
shall go well armed aiid prepared, and
have really nothing to fear. Get your
pistols ready, and I will see to mine,
and to having the lanterns propared:
and, after a good dinner, and a bottlo
of wine to warm our courage, I think
we will be ready for the trip."
"Well,   I  am   not   disposed   to   back
out," said Ralph.   "My plstois are good
ones; and If, as   you say, we    should
meet any fellow there, we ought to bo
able to give a good account of ourselves,
But I have no idea we shall meet anybody; and, of lourso, the Idea of our-encountering ghosts  is  preposterous."
"Exactly, Ralph���perfectly silly."        j
"Strango people should be so super* j
Stltlous," remarked Ralph, with an air
intended to Indicate his own entire su- j
periorlty to such a feeling. ;
"Well, I don't know," was thc reply, [
"considering the popular ignorance. ���
There are very few who have any real :
���knowledge of philosophy and science, :
and it is perfectly natural that the un- [

down the narrow stairs.
Arriving at the bottom, they found
that the stairs led Into a long, narrow,
dark hallway. They stopped and peered carefully ahead, and the quick eye of
Anthony Saybrook discerned what
seemed to him tbe faint, struggling
gleam of a ray of light piercing the
darkness from the key-hole of some
He stopped, and whispered to Ralph
his suspicion. They closed the slides
of their lanterns, leaving the hallway;
in darkness; and then the surmise of
the lawyer became a reality. There waa
certainly a door-way ahead, and rays of
light gleamed from within.
"It may be sunlight," whispered tho
lawyer, "which finds its way in through
some chink or window. We must examine Into lt, Ralph. Keep close up to
me, and have your pistols ready."
Thus prepared, they proceeded cautiously forward toward the door. The
lawyer placed his hand on the latch,
lifted It, and pushed the door open before him. A sight was presented that
caused the two intruders to start back
In consternation.
The door opened Into a large room.
The bare stone-walls were unplastered;
the beams overhead were unlathed, and
hung with cobwebs. Tbo floor was of
rough boards; and no window admitted
a single ray of sunlight. At a tall, old-
fashioned secretary In one corner of tho.
room there sat the figure of a tall man,
clothed ln. a dark robe that entirely
covered his figure. Two candles burned;
on the secretary, and from these proceeded the rays of light that had shown,
through the door. Tho deslc of the see*
retary waa covered with papers.
The door had scarcely ceased creating on its rusty hinges, and a single
glance shown this picture to the two astonished gazers, when the figure at th��j
secretary arose. It was the sudden
'spectacle of his strange appeoranco that
caused the intruders to start back in,
The figure was that of a tall, very,
venerable man. He was shrouded from
shoulders to feet.in a long black robe.
A small, close-fitting black cap was upon his head, from underneath which escaped snowy white locks. His face was
smooth-shaven, and large, piercing
eyes looked out from underneath,
shaggy white eyebrows. The expression of his countenance was dlgnlfledl
and majestic as he gazed sternly at tho
pedltlon on hand.

enjoy it with hi3 usual appetite, spite
of an apparent effort to appear unconcerned and cheerful. But each made
up' for want of "appetite by indulging
rather freely in the after-dinner potations, until their spirits were thoroughly fortified, and they felt almost courageous enough to meet a. verltabla
After securing their arms "and lanterns, they set out for the old house.
On arriving, they found the door locked, the workmen having been theie,
taken away their tools, and closed tha
house. They consulted together a few
moments ln whispers. Then they got
their arms ready, lighted the lanterns,
For a moment, the two men stoofl
huddled together In the narrow hallway,
ln the full light issuing through tha
door. Sudden surprise had deprived
thorn of all power to act ln so unexpected an emergency. They could only gaze
as If petrified at the majestic and ap-.1
parently unearthly figure before them.
Raising an arm, and pointing a long*,
skinny finger at them, the strange personage spoke:
"Who are you that Intrude uninvited
on my sacred privacy?   Begone, ere It
prove the worse for you." \
Anthony   Saybrook   strove  to   speak,
but no words came from his chattering
teeth.   The gloomy, strange surround-
' Ings,  and  the sudden  aspect of    thla
'��� strange figure, had deprived him sud-
I denly of all courage whatever.   He felt

(with the surgeon to secure an early dis- !

care, rest and nourishing food, he was
Blowly gaining strength,  and  asserted
that ho felt well enough  to leave;  but
the surgeon was afraid that the Interna i
���Injuries were of too grave a.character
to warrant an early discharge from his
care, and denied every appeal allow ed *
to leave. !
Ono  morning,  on  his  rounds  of  tho
hospital, the surgeon came to the ward
that  contained   the   wounded   sailors��� ,
most of whom were now convalescent. |
On approaching the cot that had con- '
tained the young man, he was greatlj;
surprised to find it vacant.   He had just
been considering, as he came along, the
advisability of Informing hla very anxious patient that he could.be discharged
ln a week or two.    But he was gone, j
Inquiry gave no clue to the secret of his
departure, nor were any of the.hospitai;
attendants aware of it.    He  had  evi- j

"Ugh! Ralph." said the elder Say-
Tbrook, "this old, gloomy hall strikes a
chill to my veins. I don't wonder that
people get ghost-fiightened on coming
ln here. It ls high time the old houso
was put In order, and the light and air
allowed to enter and banish this ghostly gloom. One's voice.sounds unearthly
ln here. Ah, here is where the masons
have been at work. Pity they couldn't
have kept at It. A coat of good white
over* this old brown wall would have
lightened- this gloomy aspect and afforded us a. more cheerful reception.
Now, which way shall we turn���upstairs or down?; I suppose the proper
place to investigate Is down in the basement and cellars; but, before doing so,
suppose we take a turn about up hero
and view our future domicile.
Acting on this suggestion, they pro**
ci-euea up tne staira, and, passing rroifl
room to room, chatted cheerfully on tho

Of a spirit from the nether world.

pause till, pale and panting, they wero

"It's a mystery beyond my fathoming," said the lawyer.
"I expected to be annihilated on tho

"I, too," responded the father. ."It'a
a most Incomprehensible mystery. What
shall we do?" y
"Go home," responded Ralph.
"And Rolff House?"
"Leave It to tlio devil and old Rolff'a

of it."
"Ralph, a suggestion strikes me,"'
said the lawyer. .'

Hilda informed me that she was on hei
way home from an ambulance class that
was held every week at Lady Mac-
"Everv woman ought to know how U
render first aid to the injured," she said,
with gentle decision.
j I assented warmly, and asked for par
'tier-liars as to the method of procedu,r��
at these valuabln gatherings.
"First, of course, we have tea," Bali
Hilda, "and then we all go into the lib

the side."
"And can you see the skeleton fronf

"Quite as much ns I want to!" rcpliet?
Hilda, firmly. "We were a littlo late ir
beginning to-day," she went on, "as Mrs

begin till she had had her ten."
"And what was the subject this afternoon?" I enquired.
Hilda turned reluctantly from the shoj
window she wns contemplating.
"Fractures!" she said, importantly.
"There arc eight signs and symptoms ol
fractures. I-'can only remember one���

Hilda's face assumed a pitying tenderness, beautiful to behold.

For many weeks, the disappearance
Of the young sailor was the subject of
curiosity, and speculation In the hospital..    '
Spite ol his skepticism as to the nature of the mysterious occurrences at
Rolff House, and his suspicions that
Carl Crum was at the bottom of the
Whole business, Anthony Saybrook felt
���nervous and uneasy ln regard to the
proposed visit of himself and Ralph to
the house to Investigate the matter.
The truth was, that the lawyer. Ilk.
many men who are Intellectually very
* daring/was physically a coward, and,
though he was no believer whatever in
ghosts, he had an undeflnable dread of
again entering the old mansion while
In Its present state. He could not forget the strange" and terrible death of
Leb. Sackett, nor the fright he had had
at the time of the discovery of the
corpse of the would-be robber of tho
strong vault built  by Magnus   Rolff.
.While Inwardly sneering at his own
cowardice, he made an effort to secure
the services of some resolute man to
accompany him on the pioposed Investigation; but without success. Then-
were but few men in the little community whom he would have trusted for
such a purpose, and, not much to his
surprise, all whom lie approached on
the subject had buslnoss on hand that
prevented  their  ivcceptano:  of  1.1s  ofr
tants roundly for their want of watch-j an$ tjje improvements that could    bo
' made in them. But there was little to
attract them long in the bare; unfurnished floors, and they proceeded down'
stairs again and wandered through tho
rooms leading off from the old ball.
���Here there was much to interest them,
In the quaint and massive furniture,
the once rich but faded decorations, and
the many evidences of former grandeur
end taste surrounding them. Ere lonff
they found themselves in the room that
had been occupied by the late mistress
of Rolff House, and in which she liad
died. While examining this room, the
keen glance of Anthony Saybrook detected a small door that was set ln tho
dark wainscoting, and which appeared
as If It might be a sloset. Opening it
casually, he was surprised to discover
a staircase, which evidently led down-
to the basement.  -   .
"Ah, Ralph." he said, "here ls a discovery. This seems to be a secret staircase, and perhaps lt Is Just the clue we
Want. It leads down stairs, and, as we
are about ready to go below, suppose
we see where this will take us. to."
By this time, the two men had recovered from any feelings of nervousness
felt on first entering the house. The
dead silence reigning everywhere had
convinced them that there waa nobody
ln the house, and the trip up stairs had
been taken by the shrewd but not over-
courageous lawyer to give ample time to
any Individual, If he were secreted in
the house, to get out of the way. But
they had ceased to have any expectaf
tions of meeting anybody, and the dis-1
covery of the secret stairway had simply awakened curiosity.
Nevertheless, before entering lt, they
trimmed their lanterns, and looked
���gain to their arms. Anthony Saybrook
then proceeded ahead, carefully holding
his lantern so as to throw its beams
"I must have something to steady my
nerves, Ralph," he said. "This day's
bad luck has -upset me completely.
Curse all the blundering fates that havo
conspired to create this snarl ln our
plans. Oh, it's too bad, too bad, when*
all was going forward so nicely. Here,

Capt. J. Dull* .Stuart, the ilefe.-il.eil  candidate, is a mnn of IiIkIi personal  character and therefore no extra neons  j-easons can he alleged for the small  vote polled hy him.  Hon. Charles 'Wilson will, ns Attorney-General, uphold the truest principles of judicial rectitude. Mis high  personal character, acknowledged even  by his opponents, eminently ..fits hiin  for the position of one of the Lieutenant-Governor's most trusted advisers.  J lis well known ability a.s a member of  the bar is written large upon the history of the Province. Several of his  more important speeches, such as the  closing argument before the Oriental  Commission, the defence in the "Bawn-  moi-e" conspiracy ease, and hi.s ili-nin-  atic pleading for Kennedy, the alleged  murderer, at New Westminster some  years ago, have become classics irr the  lecordsof forensic eloquence in 'British  Columbia. Thus equipped he will fill  his new position not only with honor  to himself but credit to the people of  of the Province.  We congratulate the Attorney-General on the recent emphatic endoi-sa-  lion given him and also the people of  Vancouver on the wisdom of their  choice. No part of the province need  fear that Mr. Wilson's re-election will  give the Terminal cily undue weight  in the Executive Council as both he  and Hon. R. G. Tatlow are men of  bron.b minds determined, like the rest  of the Cabinet, to do equal .iiisticc lo  every part of British Columbia.  unfair for the parents  lo unduly ham   i which will, we  believe, he  considered  per- their-  children  irr the hattie of life) during the presenfcsession with results  hy withholding that; foundation for  future enlightenment, which, afler all,  is as much ns both public and high  school training* can give them.  A NEW START.  CIVIC ELECTIONS.  It. is Hearing the time when the  lnunicipiil elections will engage the  attention of the City of Bevelstoke.  We understand Mayor 0*l-5rien has  stated definitely that he will not be a  candidate for re-election. This fact  will remove some interest from 'the  oampaign but will also admit of new-  blood more easily being infused into  our body politic. There are seveiaj  good men, both in the present* council  and out of it, who would occupy the  position of Chief Magistrate with dignity to the city.  The selection of aldermen will he  much more easy if only the most competent men can he induced to become  candidates. All things being equal,  past experience should count for much  in their- election, but it will he unwise  for any voter to cast hi.- ballot for  _either_ mayor or aldermen for that  reason alone  The coming year promises to he one  of great pi-ogre.-s in the city and pro-  gierwive men must he placed at the  head of affaire. There should he none  of picayuni.-h temperament in place.**  of power1 in Kevelstoke. Many civic  improvements will have to he marie  in the near future 'which will entail  expense, but no policy of shilly shally  should be permitted. The city has to  face the problem of adequate water  supply and electric light facilities. In  competent hands these could he provided and revenue at once derived  therefrom equal to interest and sinking fund on additional outlay. Hut  this cannot lie accomplished unless u  comprehensive scheme is d-ivised and  adhered to. Many experiences, with  the electric light plant in particular',  show the unwisdom of false economy  nnd the needs of Revelstoke demand  that her next Mayor and Council  consist of men who are not afraid to  suffer a little unpopularity for what.  the}- deem right.  In associatiorr with the School Trustees tbe matter of a high school will  next year he of paramount importance,  The present School Board did as much.  we believe, as laid in their power' but  the apathy of paren's caused the  (dropping of the project for the present. This must he takeir up, and at  once. Revelstoke is the only city of any  The opening session of a new Legislature must ever lie the occasion of  speculation ns lo the t-haraeler of the  business tn he. brought hefore it. At  lln; present juncture, however, this  forecasting is considerably aided by  foreknowledge of many important  matters upon which lion, Richard  McvHi-iile and members of his cabinet  h.-iue already announced the government's policy.  And this we know, that the opening  of the Legislature today gives the  Province a new start on its career  which has, for the past lew years, heen  one rather* of retrogression than progress.  Probably the most serious subject  for dismission will he the firriineial  positiorr, upon which we dwelt somewhat fully in our last issue, and we  are sure that the course of action  shortly he outlined hy the Minister of Finance will meet, with the  approval of the electorate.  There are other matters of very  grave importance, foremost among  which is better railway communication for that large stretch of territory  extending from Sinrilkaineen to the  mouth of the Fraser and embracing,  besides the rich mineral belt from the  Tularneeri valley to Mount Baker, the  fertile agricultural municipalities* of  Chilliwack, Langley, Surrey and the  Delta. The Premier-hasalready stated  that he hopes lo provide (his railway,  commonly called the Coa-sL-ICoolenay.  without cost to the. Province and we  can hardly understand that he will lie  hampered in his efforts by the local  members, although they have beerr  elected as members of the Opposition.  Vancouver has also a very large  interest in this project, which, through  the Hearing completion of lire Pras-er  river bridge, will at. last give that cily  a competitive railroad to the (',. P. ll.  and also permit its merchants to  obtain a larger .-hare of the trade of  the interior than at present. The  ������������������solid five" will not only work for the  good of their own constituent.-* hut fnr  the whole province south of the Kra.-er  far' reaching in their cliai-m-ler- for lhe  helter-meut of conditions in the  Province.  Despite the Opposition statements  to the contrary the present Government is in power to stay and we do  not think (hat. any factious obstruction will be tolerated hy the people at*  large. The Conservative pari.y is orr  ils trial anil will, we are assured, ie-  llect credit not only on the present  Mouse hut. also upon the principles  with which thc party in power is  identilied.  Hot Air Jim.  Tlie Vancouver World is a little  astray in the initials of out* own Jim  who anticipated a query from a reporter and delivered a het air oration  as published below. Fin- the benefit  of the World we might state that Mr.  Kellie's name is James Mugwump and  not .1. XV. as our contemporary lias it:  "Yes; 1 intend to cairy out the protest," said Mr. J. \Y. Kellie, of Revelstoke, almost anticipating a query.  "I am not doing this to embarrass the  government," he continued, "but I.  believe I have good grounds, distinctly  good grounds, to ask for the invalidation of the eleetiorr irr my constituency  and I run assured that that being  dorre I will get my seat irr the legislature.  '���������As regards other matters, from all  that I can learn I am convinced that  the Liberals will hnve.au even chance  in Kamloops, aird if Mr. .Stuart; is  elected, as he should he, if Vancouver  is true to its owrr interests, the. Liberal party will have just as good, if not  a better' chance lo carry orr the government without an .appeal to the  people than the Conservatives have or  can have. It would certainly he preferable to avoid an appeal to the people,  wilh its consequent cost and iiu-moil,  if possible."

Tho following extract from n speech  delivered before the (Jo-istitiitioiml  Club on June 2i'th. lfHKl, at ���������intctie.iilly  thc opening of his tariff c.'Uiipaigii,  gives a good idea of Mi*. Ohanibeilriiii'.s  vivid and enlightening method of public speaking. The publication of .such  extracts in pamphlet form, with heavy  black type for the more important  phrases, (which we regret necessities  of space prevent our reproducing.)  form a particular feature in the propo-  ganda of the. Tariff Committee and  will, by their forceful representation,  be important factors in obtaining that victory which, even now,  appears in sight for one who has been  aptly termed "the Missioner of the  JEmpire."  No7 0���������THE'QUESTION*  OF COST OF.  LIVING.  Ten years ago I made a speech to  my constituents in which, after-reciting what had alreadv been done, I  pointed out to them that the greatest*  of all reforms was yet to come. The  greatest boon that could be conferred  upon the working people of this country was such a reform as would  ���������ensure to every industrious man full  and constant employment at fair  ���������wages.  Do Free Imports secure this result ?  (No, no.) Surely it is a mathematical  truth that if imports of manufactured  goods���������which we' can make as well as  -.other nations���������come into this country  in constantly increasing quantities,  thej- must displace labour. Although  it may be true that these particular  articles are sold a little cheaper, what  is the good of that to a man who cannot afford to buy them ?  WILL, THE  COST OF   FOOD BE RAISED ?  1 am told that it is a main feature of  our plan to increase the cost of the  poor man's food, ls that true ? (No,  no.) If it were true it would be  serious. I leave it to the experts to  say'.whether ii tax upon any article of  consumption will in the long run inevitably be paid by the consumer, or  whether it may not' possibly be paid,  in part or wholly, by the producer of  the article. I am willing to assume  for the sake of argument���������although I  do not believe it myself���������that the  Whole cost of the tax wili fall.upon  the consumer. But even then, suppose  that the tax on corn increases the  price of bread, does that necessarily  increase the cost of living ? Man does  not live by. bread "alone. > If the increased cost of bread is met by a pro-  portionate decrease in the duty on  some other articles that are necessary  for comfort or life, the cost of living  will not be increased iii the slightest  (degree.  THE QUESTION' OF OLD AGE PENSIONS.  _l have suggested that, inasmuch as  of  tional on the cost of their bread, they I  may be entirely relieved by a reduction of a similar amount in the cost of  their tea, their sugar, or. their tobacco.  What is taken out of one pocket  would bo put back into the other.  There is no working-man in the  kingdom who need fenr, under the  system that 1 propose, that without  his goodwill, his cost of living will lie  increased by a single farthing.  Note.- If the duty on wheat riiis*.-d  the price by 2s. a qiiiirtoi-, the extra  cost would amount to ls. Od. a year  per head of the population. . Under the  present taxation the State takes 3s. 3d.  aj head by taxing tea; oil. a head by  taxing cotl'ee. chicory and cocoa; and  at least 2--. (I<1. a head by taxing sugar.  The duty on unmanufactured.tobacco  (exclusive of foreign-made cigars,  cigarettes, and packet tobacco)  amounts to 5s. (trl. a head. Thus theic  is ample room for the sort of compensation proposed by Mr. Chamberlain.  Food is already taxed; and if a duty is  put on corn, a duty yielding the same  amount can be taken off some other  sort of food.  NOTICK.

C.  The Sourer*,  tjf tho  Sweet  Not  Known' ID  tha Krallar  Tlmrft.  A corresptradent who inquires as to  the value of hone-}' as, tood will find  an answer here:  Honey has been known from th*  carlluat times. The Scriptures makes  mention of it and pagan writers celebrate Its vlr-tues. It was called "tho  milk ot the aged," and was thought to  prolong Ufa. Honey was also used In  the embalming of tho body after death.  Thin food, as useful as It ts dallcloue,  wits esteemed most highly by tho  Greoks, who celebrated lia virtues  alike In prose and verse, so that tha  fame of Atti-c honey has been transmitted unimpaired to our own day.  Used ln all kinds of pastry, cake and  raRouts, lt was also esteemed as a  sauce. Pythagoras, in the latter portion of his life, was a vegetarian, and  livod wholly on bread and honey, n  diet which he recommended to hla disciples. And this gentle philosopher  reached the ripe old ag������ of ninety,  years before he departed from life,  Tho true source from which honey  Is derlTed was only discovered in later  years, Virgil supposed that Its delicious aweetness fell from heaven upon  flowers in the shape of gentle, invisible dew, a belief which he shared  with Plrny and even Galen. It was  left to modern observers to study wiih  enthusiasm plant life and bee life, and  learn from them some of the most  wonderful lessons of nature.  Honey was often served by the ancients at the beginning of a banquet  in order that the uncloyed palate  might enjoy to tho full its equisito  flavor. It tcok the place that sugar  occupied after the discoveries of the  properties of the sugar cane, so that  all conserves, cakes and beverages  were dependent on honey for their  sweetness. Apicies prepared It for  seasoning purposes in. this manner:  Boll eight pounds of honey with ono  pint of wine, skim, add pepper, spikenard, saffron and ried dates. This  mixture was kept in jars as occasion  required.���������St.   Louis   Globe-DemocraV  Her Interpretation.

As he happened to be a friend of the  young man's father, he thought;,ha ���������  might prevent the marriage by sending a peremptory telegram couched'  in these words: "Join at once!" Tha',  lover was in despair. ; He presented!  himself before his fiancee with tha  fatal missive in his hand, and anything but a look of pleasure on hia  counienaJuce;: but Uie lady was equal  to the occasion. With a blush of maiden simplicity, she cast her eyes upoa  the ground and said:  "Dear me, I Jam glad your colonel  approves of the match! But what a  hurry he is in! I don't think I can gefl.  ready so (soon; but I'll do my best; because, of course, his command must  be obeyed."  The young warrior was puzzled.  "Don't you see," he said, "that thin  message puts a stopper to our plans!  You don't seem to understand the telegram. He says, peremptorily,' "Join  at once.' "  The lady's blushes redoubled; but  with a look of simplicity, she raised;  her lovely eyes to his face, and replied: ���������-  "It ls you, my darling, who don't,  seem to understand it. Your colonel  says plainly, 'Join, at once!'���������-by-  which, of course, he means get married Immediately. What else can ha  mean?" A look of Intelligence replaced the air of bewilderment on the,  young man's face. He accepted tha  explanation, and was enabled to answer the colonel's telegram, forty-  eight hours afterward, in these words:  "Your orders were obeyed. We wero  Joined at once."���������Youth's Companion,  A Dancing Hki* sicrlcap.

It wa.s  difficult to realize ihat her future  was soil led so easily and quiekly; slro  had anlicirpatod having to wail weeks,  penhups months, before sho obtained  employment.  She weirt slowly down the steps.  .Tust hi front ol* her stretched tho  park, and .yielding to a sudden'impulse, Katharine turned and walked  rra"fleetly as iher foot would allow  across iho wide road into it.

Sho was glad  she had agreed to accept the post, for  tho remunorat.Ton was most handsome  and fitted in with a desire thai had  grown 'fn her mind ever since she had  resolved to bo independent, namely,  that mow she would be able to materially help Lucy Smythe, whom she  knew required such help badly. It  was almost ais if some good fnnr'y had  exercised her power and brought,  about this speedy engagement; and  yet, though >KaUiari-ne felt satisfied  and (pleased more than gratified by  Lady - iTDrunnniond's aftewtiona-to ap-  preci-iatiicrti of her dead father and his  art, there lived through it ail that  sruno curious, dull pain at her heart  that had come when she gazed on Or-  jitauda's picture, and heard that he  was d2cj>l'y' in love with Barbara Mos-'  tyn.  Kulharino sighed uneasily as she  sat .down on an eunpty bench m ��������� a  quiet corner, arrfl wondered why such  a pain should come to her. She had  riaver feilt the like beforo, although  us we know well, she had had her.  aha ro of human suffer Tug. For the  first time thc hateful remembrance cf  Gordon und her connection wiih him  faded Out of her ru'md, and she  thought of Lord Otway, and Lord  Otway  alone.  "I could trust him, believe in him,  as 1 trusted and'belioved' in daddy,"  she murmured to herself. "Lady  .JDrummoud is -right��������� an angel bo is,  indeed!"  .She, sighed again, and then she gave  a JiTti.le cry of .-ustimisTnment that wa������j  echoed by anotli-r person . just :ni;  front of her.

The good- nRturocr, fussy old lady  drovo Katharine* to CBciing Cross,  and saw her Into the trnln herself.

"Oh, love��������� my lovo," she said to  herself -sorrowfully; "why have you  coiim du add to my miseries? Surely  nry lot wa.s hard enough without you!"  Then she lifted tho roses to her  lips passionately, and crushed their  soft, dewy, fragrant hearts lo her  burning eyes.

To fling away  rosea was an easy task, but to tear-  out this newly- born love was something biiyo-nd nor puny strength, bo  the desire ever so great.  When Brexley was reached, Katharine-got. out on uie platform, collected her luggage, which was very  small, and then was conducted to a  wagonette that was waiting.  She little imagined as she drovo  away, from the station that Gordon  ���������Smythe's black eyes were following  her on this hor lirst entrance on her  new life. - T ���������  He uttered nn oatli of mingled surprise and anger as Irj beheld the girl.  .Not until (his moment hadft.

"This is part of tfrn tomfoolery ot  earning hur living that mother wrote  ime, I suppose," lie said to himself.  "Looks, as if she irad fallen on hor  feet.

Few people would have recognized in this  shabbily dressed man, his lea tu res  half disguised under a slouched felt  hat, the smart, handsome Gordon  Smyihe.' ������,  "Can you direct me lo lhe asylum?"  he*asked a   porter, civilly.  "I'm going *oma for a whiles. I'll  Jwalk a bit and set yj-u on tho road  to it, mate."  Tho two men Turned nnd toiled  along the hot, dusty i.ide in silence.  "There you be, mate Go straight  ahead, you'll cmno to it."  Gordon thanked (he man, and hurried on to the square, red- li ricked  building, which was exactly like the  hospital, and wa.s erected"��������� as the  stranger lo Brexley soon discovered���������  by Squire Mostyn *ror the use of the  several small parisnes around.  As he npprotichcd I hi: iron gates of  tho asylum Gordon- pulled,out  of hrs  pocket a   copy ol a   daily paper, and  perused a   ceria'in paragraph eagerly.  This paragraph told how a   traveling  tinker and his  wife  had rescued  an unfortunate, man from the nuiiih  of an old coal mine near the town   of  | Ledstone.      The pour creature, it  was  j supposed, had missed his fooling and  'fallen over in thu dark, and il      wa.s  ! simply miraculous that  he had     not  j been dashed lo pic.ies.   The tinker and  his wifo had taken the man inlo their  j homo���������  a   caravan  on   wTioeLs  ��������� and  nursed  hiin for in rets weeks,  till    he  grew so bad they were compelled    io  call in the assistance of a   doctor,   so  ono evening, us Uiey settled   in  Brexley  village,  they solicited    uid      and  charity tram the Brexley authorities  etcetera.  Gordon read tlirough the paragraph  till ho came lo tire end, which said  that, despite every available effort,  no cine as to the identity uf tlie man  -cohidnbo^discoVeredr^'nd^ihe-firexiey"  authorities having pity ori his condition, had subuiiiTied his case* to Miss  M'-sfyn, the lady or the, manor, who  had -sit once commanded that the unfortunate man sliuuld be placed in  tha asylum-built by her father, and  carefuTly nursed, ll possible, back to  h.aTtlr  and  reason.  This paragr-upli wa.s the cause of  Gordon cjni.v;th'--'-t Jourtury to' Brexley.

To Lady Blanche Belluir's great delight, Miss Mostyn suddenly ronnun -  ed the idea of paying the visit to her  friend wilh the handsome penniless  brother, und declared her iiituution  of going direct to Brexley Hull iu-  ���������*������������r*ad.  "I forgot all about my birthday  when I promised Maude I would go  to h������r. Of courso I must be nt  Brox2a*y on tho tenth. My peoplo  would bo very groived aliout it if f  disappointed them."  Barbara was fond of alluding to  the parish and village around her  home a������ "my people," there was a  fine sounding ring in the words that  sho liked. Sho hnd of.'en made Oy-  mando smile nnd (hen wince nt this  putty   assumption   of   sovereignty.  It was not the pieinriiure depart uro  of Lord Ot'wn'y from Maple Tree  House that had aliinii influenced Barbara in her desire to end lier siny  in N'orlhminstur, too; she was absolutely .devoid of sympathy, and lln  sight, of poor, pale, deformed Maria.r  Adair, sitting iu the. garden or drawing- room, with lim palitmt. sufferiu;;  dwolling in her large eyes, annoyed  and depressed her.  Lady Blanche, too, was rrot so ������i-  inusiiiig sirrce the news of this nephew's disappearance had como.  "One might: as Woll be with a parcel of mules !" Miss Mostyn declared,  ill- leinpcredly, to her.self, after she  had struggled through a week of this  "arrd sirrce Lord Otway evidently does  not intend to return, I don't seo.  ..what occasion there is for mc to slay  any longor. Upon my wtird, I think  I did a vory foolish thing when I cut  mysolf out of Goodwood nrrd Cowc-s  simply to come 'down hero and bo  bored  and  disappointed."  And thou she called sharply to her  two maids ���������Miss Mostyn could not  possibly travel without two women  lo wait on her ���������and ordered thorn  to pack her voluminous wardrobe into tho half-dozen immense'imperials  which always her aided hue approach  when visiting. ' 'I'o Lady Blanche,  howover, Barbara was sweetness itself.  ""I'cannot say liirw grieved I nm lo  leave you, dear Lady rilarrohri, especially now you ar.*1. so troubled; arrd  wero it not for my ditt.ns, I should  be.g you lo keep ure u little longer;  but," wil.!; it plaintive sigh, "you sec  hrf.v 1 am placed, rloa"! you?

To this, Of course, Lady Blanche  made uurnu pleas.nit reply, though she  could nol repress u smile nt the  girl's infallible beiit-f irr hers-If and  her marvelous coiiceii.  "You will write fo me, Barbara, of  courso?" she said as she kissed tlio.  girl, "and tell in3 all your plans.  I suppose you 'will not stay long ul  Brexley 1"  "It all depends," replied- Barbara,  with another sigh. "I generally find  I am wanted in a* hundred direct ions  and Aunt Mildred is not of lhe  slightest use. I only hope this new  companion may turn out well. You  kliiiol.vi I Wii'olo up lo Aunt lillen and  asked hor to engage some ono for  me, and this morning I received a'  hurried note informing me sho had  found tho very person who, if all accounts bo true, is a perfect-paragon  of perfection !"

"Yes, 1 have 'bt'cn a fool," she  communed. "I have undoubtedly losl  Sir Henry JBracy by not going lo  Goodwood or Cowes, nrrd. my i.iirie has  been simply wasted here.

"It's to shut in the park like  and keep   it to its selfun." ..  "Oh, what a pity I" Katharine exclaimed. "It quile spoils the view,  that tall, ugly wall I I wonder how  any  ono could  have built it."  The coachman touched the near  horse with his whip. ���������  "Miss Mosiyii seemed to want it  like, and so she did it, miss.  Katharine was silent as the great  gates were opened, and then she was  driven through the avenue of beech  trees up to the hall, a, large turreted  mansion, bearing here and there evidence  of  the   builder's  hand.  A, stout, motherly woman was  standing at the entrance as Katharine   alighted.   -;  "Miss Brereton," she asked, respectfully; "would you like to seo  M>s.

"The stairs is steep, liko; you'll be  careful, miss, a.s you go, ivom't you?"  said Patty, anxiously, noticing Katharine's weakness and limp; and then  nothing would do but she must go  down first and show the way.  It   was  a    glorious    evening,    and  Katharine's soul seemed  to revive as  the  fragrant, warm  air kissed      her  face and ruffled, her hair.

The Lord's Prayer is a volume of  doctrine and ethics, basic and far-reaching. This first petition is tlie cornerstone of thc whole structure, and sets  forth the same radical concept that St.  Paul does in his treatise on charity.  It creates the viewpoint of the religion  of Jesus Christ. To make something  holy is to develop the highest attitude  of our nature, the result of the union  of the mind and thc heart.  There is holiness that belongs to certain things aside from what we ordinarily call religion. The thing that has  become holy to you may have little or  no value. An old book that your mother often read, that would not bring  five cents in the market, is treasured as  a holy thing by you, and perhaps by  you alone; the old homestead is a holy  place; a little half-worn shoe is a holy  thing to a saddened mother's heart. All  because these things have been linked  with the affections.  Tlie grant locomotive has become a  holy thing to the man that sits in the  cab, the realization of the dream of  years, the shrine of worshipping labor;  there is no need to bid him to give it  Ms best energies; they belong to it. A  drop oif stagnant water is a holy thing  to the man of conscience who has devoted his mind to study of its revelations, and through his microscope he  enters it with such reverence as a  worshipper does a temple. No need  to bid him to prayer, or such it is; he  kneels day after day waiting for the  revelation of God.  The devoted son, the loving mother,  the mechanic who gives honor to hi.s  work; J and the student whose every  thought is a prayer, arc examples of  the best tilings in this rife of ours, and  the nearest to our loving Father, creating and working in His infinite wis-  . dom: but, as with,all the noblest'things  in life, they are the most dangerous.  .The son, the mother, the engineer, the  . student may become idolaters, arid that  which was holy degenerate into a selfish  superstition, that- which 'ought:*-to'"lie  a motive to a broad and wealthy life  become a positive hindrance to . true  growth. -.;'������������������.

This is when it has grown two full  seasons. If kept beyond this time either weeds or grasses come in, according as the soil is best seeded with  these. Whoever keeps a field in clover longer than two years lessens the  crop that can be grown after it. On  the other hand, a clover sod will rot  down the first season after it is plowed, so that the land may be sown with  clover seed the following spring. An  old sod made up from any ol* the grasses should be cultivated two years before it is ready to reseed, hence the  smaller amount of fertility it furnishes  is more thoroughly exhausted by three  crops on it instead of two, as clover  shows before the laud is again being  reseeded.  Canadian   Shorthorn    Cows   Wanted  for St. Louis.  Mr.  H.  H.  Hinds,  Stanton,  Mich.,  who  is  selecting  the   Shorthorns   for  the dairy cow demonstration at the St.  Louis Exposition, is desirous of getting in communication with the owners of the best dairy Shorthorn cows  in Canada, and for that purpose    has  written Mr. F. W. Hodson, Live Stock  Commissioner, Ottawa, for information  regarding the best method of achieving his object.    He writes: "I am exceedingly  anxious  to  locate  some  o������  the  best  specimens    of .dual  purpose  Shorthorn cows  in existence  for the  purpose of securing them to enter lithe d-airy demonstration to be held at  the  St.   Louis  World's   Fair   of  next  year.   I am aware that our Canadian  friends have  many specimens  of this  type  of Shorthorns,   and  am   hoping  and  expecting  to   receive  very  valuable assistance from our friends across  the border. At the Columbian World's  Fair of 1893  we" had some very fine  cows from Canada that were selected  by  a committee    of your    Shorthorn  Breeders'     Association,     and     were  brought out under the auspices ol" the  .Canadian Government.

Within the past few months, says The  Navy League Journal, tire tension ln the  far east between Japan and Russia has  greatly Increased, and there Is some danger that Japan may be forced to take  active measures to assure her position.  The danger lies In the fact that, as was  pointed out in a memorandum drawn up  by a number of Japanese professors and  presented to the Japanese Government,  Japan's forces are slightly superior at  this moment to the Russian, both on land  and on sea, but that within tbe next  twelve months that advantage will pass  for ever from her.  The   Russian   fleet   on   the   station,   on  which much deperrds at present, consists  of the battleships Hetvisaii, Pobleda, I-er-  esvlet,   Sevustopol,   Poltava   and   Petro-  pavlosk, all six comparatively new slips,  well  armed and  of  the   ilrst   class,   lho  armored cruisers on  the station  are the  Gromovol, of modern type, and the Russia and Rurlk. of older pattern. There tiro  six modern   fast  protected  cruisers,  and  between   twenty   and   thirty   destroyers  and  torpedo  boats.    This  fleet  is   therefore a very formidable orre.  It has been  assiduously practised and trained���������Indeed,  the   perpetual   shooting   has   awakened  the  suspicion   of  ninny   neutrals   in   tne  far  east,   and   has   led   them   to   conjecture   that  Russia   means   war.   Its   gunnery is reported to be exceptionally good,  and It ls stated In confirmation of this, In  Mr.   Jane's  new  Issue   of  his  invaluuble  All the World's Fighting Ships,   that in  the Russian navy the officers undertake  the   aiming   of   the   gun,   which   means  careful and sclentiflc fire.    The Russian  navy has never been seriously  tested at  sea, but thore is  every reason  to  think  that  lt  would   give   a   good   account   of  itself.     Tactics   and   strategy   are   well  taught, and there is of course a proper  Intelligence   department   and   a    general  staff, so that the organization   is up to  date.    The ships  are very  good  indeed,  and reflect sound conceptions of the needs  of war.    Under orders for the  far east,  as soon as tliey can be got ready, or in  one   or  two  cases  actually  on   the   way  out,   are  no  less   than   five  new   battleships and an armored cruiser.   The battleships   are   the     Osslabia,   Tsarevitch,  Boredina, Orel and Srrvarov, all modern  and   extremely   formidable   vessels.   The  three   last   are   still   incomplete,   but   it  ls    hoped   that  they  will  be    got  away  before   the   closing   of   the   Bailie   next  winter, and every nerve is being strained  to attain that object.   The armored cruiser   Bayan,   which   is  in   service,   is   also  going   out.     With   the   arrival   of   these  vessels  and   of a  large  number of new  destroyers  and  smaller   cruisers,   Russia  will   have   eleven   battleships,   two   good  armored   cruisers,   about   ten   serviceable  protected   cruisers,   and   thirty   or   forty  torpedo   craft.     The   possession   of   this  force will  render her superior to Japan  alone;   much   superior   to   England,   who  has not been building up to the mark of  late  year3,   and   has   no  absolutely  new  battleships   on   the   far   eastern   station,  and  not .much  behind    the'two "powers  combined on that station.  The Japanese fleet will receive no such  additions. As it stands to-day so it will  stand a year hence. It consists of six  battleships, two of*which are now growing  old, and are distinctly inferior to the  Russian ships in fighting qualities; six  good and modern armored cruisers, for  nil practical purposes as formidable as  battleships: four very fast cruisers and  a large number of. smaller cruisers and  torpedo craft. The organization of this  fleet is above reproach; there is a general  staif, so that It is up to date, and not  behind the times like our own naval  organization; the men are well trained  and of unmatched bravery: the officers  are good and of fighting stock. The whole  fleet vibrates with zeal and enthusiasm,  and if it" were beaten'it would fight;to  the .very last, : and: give, the .world an  example of heroism .unsurpassed: in-'any  age.: Yet the weakness, of :tlils people  lies  in  its bitter poverty,   and  it is not  Montreal and New York,  The Evening Fost (Mew York), says The  Nation of the same dry. presents a striking parallel between the conditions at the  port of Montreal and at Now York.   Export cargoes aro plentiful at the  former  point; here the tramp steamer, tho sure  index of  the state of  trade,  has almost  disappeared, and  the few which do frequent our port must remain hero idly for  days, perhaps weeks, waiting to bo chartered.   For tho week ending Juno --0, ioC-3,  more    wheat   went   from Portland, Me.,  than from New York,    Less  than '200,000  bushels came this way for export, while  more than l.SfiO.OOO bushels wcrrt by way  of    Canadian   ports    and    Boston.     The  same freight rates aro offered by rail to  Boston as to Now York, though tiro distance ls greater, arrd,   besides  this,  free  storage with Insurance Is provided In railroad  warehouses  at  Boston.    The  rates  to     Philadelphia,     Baltimore,     Newport  News and other Atlantic ports soulli uf  New  York  are lower  than to this  port,  the result  of a traffic arrangement  between the trunk linos.   As to the decline  itself,  there  is   no   possible  doubt.    The  annual  report  of the  Chamber of Commerce for the fiscal year ending Juno :-.0,  1902,   shows   that  there   was  a   total  decrease   in   the   foreign  commerce  of   tlio  City  of   New   York,   us   compared   with  1901, amounting to SKUitS.GOO.    The figures  for 1901 show a decrease of {23,756,000 over  1900.   Instead of sharing in lhe great increase in the nation's foreign  trade,  tire  port   of   New   York   has   fallen   behind.  Meantime Montreal's exports have grown  from *l32,245,941������in 1SS0 to **(i*l,0*IO,fl83 In ISM,  and her imports from S-C'.-iiiiHS in 1SS0 to  *Ki5,01S,6������ in 1899.   From statistics compiled  by the New York Produce Exchange w--  learn that New York's percentage of the  total exports of flour, wheat and corn, in  bushels, fell from 50.3 per cent, ln li'SO to  32.9 per cent, in 1S99,  while Boston In the  same period of time increased her exporrs  of flour, wheat and corn from 7.9 per cent,  to 13.3 per cent. ; "Philadelphia  from   13.7  per cent, to 10.3 per cent.; Baltimore from  ���������2'2 per cent, to 2(l.*j per cent.; Norfolk from  1 per cent, to 2.S per cent., arrd Newport  News from nothing to S.l per cent.   Since  those figures have beerr compiled the decline has been even more striking.  Cyclists in Parliament.

I have just  completed a new suite, entitled, 'Hebo  and Ganymede,' occupying two hours In  performance, each movement of which  Is contrived to coincide in length and  treatment with a fresh course. Thus In  the soup section tho wooing of the turtle  is suggested by a passage for four Slates,  and the 'bird' ls richly scored wllh bravura passages for the oboes and piccolo.

Results very favorable to  mulching have been secured with cabbage, tomatoes, beans, cucumbers, potatoes and sweet potatoes. In "ai!  these cases the yields have been increased, on the whole, quite decidedly by mulching, and the required labor decreased at the same time..Mulched cabbage produced larger heads than  cultivated cabbage, and there was less  injury from rot. The vigor of tomato,plants was decreased by mulching,  but the yield.of fruit increased. The  fruit was also'cleaner and less subject  to rot. Mulched cucumbers produced  perfect fruits during dry periods, when  the fruit from the cultivated plants  were small and imperfect. The quality of potatoes has not been hurt by  mulching,   except   in   wet places.

England has a remarkable he������d of hair  He is rather proud of his possession  and has no intention of parting with i  at present.  Not long ago a local ne'er-do-wcl  was brought before him on a charst  of poaching, and in the course of the  hearing of the case an amusing incident occurred. Thc prisoner was exceedingly impudent, interrupting the  witnesses and insulting all who had  anything to say to  or against him.  Considering the case proved, the stipendiary turned to the prisoner and  asked :  "Have you any remarks to make :"  "Yes, I have," responded he. flippantly.      "Your  h**ir  wants cutting!"  There was an audible titter in court,  which developed into a roar of laughter  as tlie witty stipendiary coolly replied :  "So does yours, my friend. Three  months."  Before the laughter had subsided the  Prisoner was in the cells.  Perhaps nothing is more difficult that}  ,to sav exactly what we mean. A teachj  |er o{ composition in a private school)  jwho realized this, has lately been -tryinfl  the experiment of making her pupifl  write anything they like about a given  subject in a given-time, generally about*  five minutes; and some of the results  have been most enlightening.-One of th<  subjects was "Wind," for example, ami  here is one.'of the,.answers: "There a:<*  four winds, north, east, south and west*  but sometimes two o-f these blow at thi  same time, and then we get a SAV. oil  N.E.* wind." Another was at least topii  cal: "Wind is an aboroinal element. I-j  blows off people's hats and uproots tree*'  But it Is very useful for yacht races."   ;  The subject "Jam"'was equally inspin  ing, judging by the remarks written on  it. "Jam is to be found in nearly evcrj  house," wrote "someone; "and some peo1  pie eat it at every meal. Somo jams  ore sticky." AVe should rather like tc  hear   of   thc jam  that   is   not   sticky;  "simple directness was^Ireland." Mor������  eloquent than tire eloquence of ft whold  Oaclic ler.gue was the delightful sen)  -fence: "Tire Irish were conquered by tkj  English in days of old, and hnve bceq  annoyed about it ever since."
