LIMITED.  e  ���������  e  a  ���������  o  e  ���������  o  EVA MINE JOINS  THE SHIPPERS  Satisfactory Results of First  Clean up���������Quartz Averages  $15 to the ton���������Description of  Machinery.  Camborne, B. C, Nov. 9. Now  that the Eva stamp mill has made its  flrst mill run a description of the  8-ime will not he   out  of  order.     As  repotted at the time construction was  commenced a lot of blasting was done  to give a rock foundation to the  battery frame.-Tho wisdom, however,  of this has heen proved since the mill  began working.  The mill itself occupies a space of  about SO by 35 feet and the total  .height* from the tram terminal to tlie  lowest floor is 85 feet. The vanuer  room contains four 0 ft. Frue vanners  whicli are fed from a cone sizer and  the battery consists of ten stamps  made by the Fraser & Chalmers Co.,  weiging over half a ton each. The  ��������� mill is also equipped with automatic  feeders.  The source of ppwer is water,  brought froiu Pool creek about 4000  feet from the penstock above the mill  by a 2A by 30 inch covered flume. An  18 inch rivetted steel pipe conveys the  water about 1000 feet. from the penstock to the Pelton impulse wheels  ���������which work under a head of 400 feet.  There are three Pelton water motors,  one for the Comet Brock crusher (05  li. p.), one for driving the stamps (135  b. p.) and one for the vanners and  electric light plant (20 h. p.). The  building is heated by a (5 h. p.) boiler  of locomotive type.  The tramway was built by the well  known firm of R. U. Kiblet, of Nelson,  and is about 1100 yards in length with  one span of KKK) ftiet. It has a capacil y  of about 200,000 lbs every ten hours  and the buckets nre sized to hold 10  cubic feet of ore. Everything aboul,  ���������he mill is in   good .shape  and   it   is  estimated that from   now   on the mill  will be kept in constant occupation.  As foi' the resultof-sthe mill run it  was not as large as I anticipated owing  to some practically barren schist being put through with the ore. There  were 705 tons milled in just short of  500 hours or about 15 tons for a ten  hour shift. When the mill finds herself it is expected to increase this to  400 lbs an hour each stamp or a tofcil  of 48 tons for a full day. As for values  the result was quite up to what the  management thought. The plates  saved 385 oz. of gold which averages  about $18.50 or a total of ������7122.50,  and there are nearly 5 tons of enn-  centrates=.w.hieh^slrould^bring^=the  grand total in the vicinity of .$0000.  As there was little more than 800 tons  of average run ore, outside the barren  stud' mentioned above, the general  value may be taken as .$15 to -the ton  -which is very good;  Some remarks have been made regarding my forecast of .$20,000 for a  full month's run. AH I can say is  that when the mill gets running  steadily with 48 tons per diem of the  same value as that turned out, about  $15 to the ton, the nmnthlv output  will he over $20,000. Tlris is clearly  proved by* the present returns and the  only reason mj- statements were misunderstood'is that my remarks for  the October run were not read as intended to refer to a full month.  Gharlie Sing- Murdered at  Steveston���������Highbinders Suspected���������Verdict at Inquest-  Stuart the Sacrifice.  (From Our Own Correspondent.)  V.vxcouVEii, Nov. 11.���������The. sensation of the week was the murder of  Charlie Sing, a well known Chinese  gambler and merchant, at Steveston  on Saturday. He was running a branch  store there and not appearing'at the  'usual time some countryim-n investigated and found him on his bed with  his throat cut from ear to ear. As no  weapon was discovered it is evidently  a case of murder*. The whole room  had been rjinsacked and as he had  about .$700 in his possession robbery  may have been the cause. There aro  two other theories advanced; one that  Lhe lirtndor was done by Japanese  gamblers with whom he had some  trouble and the othov that it was tho  work of Highbinders. It is stated  thai Charlie was suspected of being a  tool of the police here and was responsible for tlie success of the big raid on  Dupont Street recently. Hc. had certainly complained to the police that  be was in fear of his life but when  nsked to make an official complaint  refused to disclose the names of his  enemies.  An inquest was held on Saturday  when Dr. JR. F. Greer gave evidence  that death was caused by two if not  three gashes with a large knife. The  jury returned a verdict of murder  against* parties unknown. The mui-  dered man was buried in Vancouver  on Monday.  Two arrests have been made, one  Chay Say, the old man who discovered  that murder had been committed and  -Lee Ming Foy a piu-ther of deceased  in his gambling enterprise; ' The Highlander theory is i-ejci- in> close altm  tion. Several members "of the police  force have identified the dead man as  the one who complained to them and  his friends have given corroborative  evidence of the meeting at which  Charlie was warned he would be killed  if he did not secure the release' of the  men arrested during the big raid. Although three Japs were among his  gambling partners it is not at present  thought they had anything to do with  the murder. They have, on the contrary, given the police valuable assistance in their investigations.  Capt. J. Duff Stuart was selected  last night, to lead the forlorn hope  against Hon. Chas. Wilson. There is,  as usual, considerable division in Grit  ranks and the Attorney-General will  have a bigger mojority than before.  ai even more perfect   rendition than  before.  The   company   has   been   provided  with scenery and costumes -legardless  of expense.     Mr. C. P. Walker, of the  Winnipeg Theatre, who unmakes the  present tour, has provided   an   equipment never   before   equalled   in   tbe  wesi' and the performances will  be in  every way equal to those   of  the best  metropolitan   companies.     We   may.  say, also, that  a  complete acetalyne  and oil plant is carried to   provide   ah  adequate stage effect for the principal  s:enoin "Que Vadis," the   burning of  JRonie. "*  SEVEN HUNDRED  PLUNKS SILVER  Orangemen Entertain  The supper and concert given by L.  O. L. No. 1058 and L. T. 13. No. 174 in  Selkirk Hall on Thursday evening was  very, well attended. Thcc ladies had  provided a boun'.iful supper which  was much appreciated by all present.  Mr. Ed. Adair acted as chairman of  the concert the program me for which  was as'follows:  'Choi-us'>' "Maple Leaf."  Members L. T. B.  Address Chairman.  Instrumental solo       Mr. A. G. Crick.  Recitation     . Mr. .T. XV. Bennett.  Solo ' Mrs. Tweedale.  Address    . ���������     Rev. AV. C. Calder.  Duett "Whispering Hope"  Mrs. Lee and Miss Swift.  Recitation "Prayer or Works"  Mrs. O'Brien.  Solo, "People who live in glass Houses"  ,  ' Mrs. AV. Bews.  Address Rev. R.McIntyre  God Save the King.  Too much praise cannot be given to  the ladies who were responsible for  the supper and proved indefatigable  in tlieir efforts to see everyone well  provided for. Most of the items on  the programme were encored and the  speeches of the Chairman and Rev.  II. Mclntyre were most suitable to the  occasion. A satisfactory sum was  realized towards the building fund for  the Orange Hall the corner stone of  which il-is.-hoped will be laid in the  near future.  IS COMPLETED  Purvis-Dunn.  This morning at 7.30 the wedding of  Miss Helena Dunn and Mr. J. P. TPi-i-  viswas solemnized by Rev. Henry L.  Roy, the ceremony taking place at  1157 Hat-wood street, the residence cf  Mr. L. T. Solloway, brother-in-law tf  the bride.  The bride, who was attired in a neat  brown travelling suit, 'wasattended hy  Miss Lew, arid the best man was Jlr.  Alex. Purvis. A large 'number of  handsome arrd costly presents testified  to the popularity of both bride and  groom. JMr. Purvis is well known in  atbletic.circles. having been it member  of Ihe Vancouver Footlxill Club since  1SSS). lie was a prominent figure nn  the all-Canadian football team whicli  went, to England Inst year-.  Shortly alter the ceremony Mr. and  Mrs. Purvis left for Seattle and Portland on their wedding trip. Upon  returning tlrey will proceed to Field,  when; they will take up their  residence. (Vancouver World, Nov.  ���������.tth.)  Quo Vadis and Hamlet.'.  The two night's engagement of  Harold Nelson and his talented company at the Opera House next Mon-  1lity1ind~Tiie������da^  big theatrical event of the season.  His last visit was a source of great  pleasure to all lovers of the drama  and we predict for him crowded  houses both nights.  Monday evening's play. "Quo Vadis,"'  is of a semi-religious ��������� character.  Founded on the masterpiece of the  great Polish novelist,. Sienkiewicz,  introduced to the . western world by  tlie admirable translations of Jeremiah  Curtin, it abounds in dramatic incidents full advantage of which was  taken by the dramatist. The story is  too well known to need a'summary  hut we may say that wherever Mr.  Nelson has appeared in the principal  role of Marcus .Vinicius he has  achieved a veritable triumph. The  dashing reckless soldier who becomes  changed, through love of Lygia tbe  hostage daughter of the christian  King, to the ardent follower of the  then despised sect of the man of  Galilee, is a character study of brilliant  conception and well sustained portrayal. As Petronius, the arbiter  e'.egantariuni of Rome, Clifford JLane  Bruce has added new laurels to his  already favorable reputation ; and  altogether the performance will be a  notable one in the histrionic annals of  Revelstoke.  Of Hamlet little need be said. Mr.  Nelson appeared as the melancholy  Dane here in thc spring, and we know  his performance was an artistic  success. From everywhere we receive  accounts of his remarkable advance  in his profession and feel assured that  the well known soliloquies will receive  Premier    McBride   Announces  .   the new Arrangement of Portfolios���������Fulton   President    of  Council���������His Career.  (From Our Own Correspondent.)  Victoria, B. C, Nov. 6.���������The cabinet  has been completed, the rearrangement of portfolios resulting as follows:  Premier, Minister of Mines and Provincial Secretary, Hon. Richard McBride.  President of the Council, Hon. F. J.  Fulton, B. A., K. C.  Attorney-General, Hon. Charles  Wilson, K. G, (late president of the  council.)  Chie? Commissioner of Lands and  Works, Hon. R. F.

Governor the   need   of  retrenchment  and His Honour cheerfully acquiesced  in the mines and Provincial Secretary's  departments being administered by  one-member of tho cabinet. The  necessary legislation to make this in  form will be passed at the coining  session. .���������'.*.  The writ for the bye-election in  Vancouver has been issued. Nomination will be on Monday, Nov. 10th and  election Nov. IS. The Liberals will  bring out a candidate to oppose Hon.  Chas.   Wilson.  Hon. Frederick John Fulton, the  new minister, is a member of the  legal profession, rind sits for North  Yale, where he defeated Mr. F. J.  Deane, the Liberal candidate, on two  occasions. Hon. Mr. Fulton is a son  of Alexander Fulton, Scotch, and  Barbara Fulton, English. Born the  8th of December, 1802, at Bedlingt*������p,  England. Educated at Haversham  Grammar school and Magdalene  college, Cambridge (B. A. Cantab.)  Unmarried. A barrister-at-law. JFirst  elected to legislature at general- election of 1000. A Protestant; a Conservative.  Hon. Mr. Fulton settled in Hamilton, Out., on first coming to Canada.  In the autumn of 1888 he went to  Kamloops, with which enterprising  town be has been ever since identified,  and where he is held in high esteem  bv all classes. The choice of Mr.  Fulton is considered by shrewd observers to be a particularly happy one,  as he is a very strong man in his own  constituency of North Yale, where  two victories in succession over an  admittedly popular, as well as a  young and exceedingly vigorous man  like F. J. Deane, attest the grasp  which he has laid upon the affection  of the Nortli Yalers.  CLAIM JUMPER  DEALT WITH  E. Tanghe Convicted on two  Charges in Connection with  Poplar  Creek Claims���������Three  ' Months and Committal.  (Special to The Heiiald.)  Trout Lakk, Nov. 5.���������The first trial  jigai n stJ?oplatX!i*cc k^clni nu=j um pers  ended today in convicting prisoner E.  Tanghe, a prospector from Rossland,  on two   charges.      fn   first   case   the  magistrate sent Tanghe up   for   trial  ona   two   thousand   dollar   bond for  stealing gold ore from   famous  Lucky  Jack   mineral    claim   outside   of the  limits of ^a   placer  claim   which   the  prisoner   was   permitted    to    locate.  Robt. Hodge, of Ferguson, prosecuted  on behalf Great Northern  .Mines  Ltd.  The defence was conducted by A. II,  McNeill,  K.   G,   of   Rossland.     The  second was on an information laid by  Fred Fraser,  Gold   Commissioner at  JUevelstoke,   against Tanghe  for   disobeying   his   order to remove certain  stakes.    In this case Fraser prosecuted  on his own behalf, the prisoner   being  defended by Mr. McNeill.   The Magistrate   sentenced    prisoner   to    three  months hard   labor   at  Nelson   goal.  The  toials   created   intense,   interest,  the court room   being   packed  with a  crowd  of   Poplar   Creek   prospectors  who universally approved   the Magistrate's decisions.    Claim jumping and  unlawful surveying have gone to such  an extent in that camp that only   the  prompt execution  of  justice has prevented   the miners   taking   the    law  into their  own   hands.     Other   civil  cases  against  Lucky   Jack  are   still  pending,   and,    from    today's     convictions, the owners have apparently  little to fear. *.*,  ���������Our Ram Lai's Tea is put up in one  pound packages, 00c. a package or Ave  packages for $2.50.

Is the Latest Discovery on the  Mammoth at Goat Mountain ���������  Silver Dollar Gold ��������� First  Masquerade.  (From Onr Own Correspondent.)  Camborne. Nov. 9.���������Since my last  week's letter another important discovery has heen made on the Mammoth  group, Goat mountain.     lt   was,   as  usual, made in an unlooked for manner.  The owners intend to  work   the   property all winter and have accordingly  devoted their  attention0 to   building  camps, trail work and taking supplies  up to the claims.   This was practically  completed   and   they  were   starting,  under foreman Sid Graham, to  excavate a foundation   for   the   blacksmith  shop, when they came  across   a   new  vein of silver-lead ore that assays all  the way from $300 to $725 to the  ton.  Five and a half tons were taken out of  the find to complete  excavation work  and the liguies given are from assays  of a dozen or so unselected samples.  Tbe North western Development  Syndicate is out of difficulty. The  reconstruction scheme has worked so  well that enough money has been  raised to meet all liabilities and it is  probable work will be resumed before  Christmas. A new directorate has  been elected, all new blood with the  exception of Judge J. B. Curtis who  made such a favorable impression here  when he acted as temporary manager  of the company.  The recent rich strike of free gold on  the Silver Dollar group, Mohawk  creek, has every appearance of being  permanent. I was talking to Tom  "Wills, who came down Friday .from  the property and he says that gold is,  visible to the naked eye all across tlie  lead -and several specimens, one  weighing 10,000 lbs., have been taken  out fully, equal to,' the big pocket  foimd last spring on the Goldfinch.  It is more than possible that develop  ment will be continued all winter.

Katharine, for il. waa she., had no  knowledge of hi.i gaze or of his prn������p  encc; she walked b.y, lost in her confused, miserable thoughts, seeing,  knowing nothing, savo that the, sacrifice, was over��������� her task was done.

"Come, that's betlerl" said a gentle yet cherrj; voice just above her;  and lifting l**sr* sweet gray eyes, Katharine mot tho eager, interested, nl-  most tender gaze of a pair ot deep  blue omea bent anxiously on her  faco.  She tried lo murmur something, or  lo mo\e, bul both jfforts were fruitless, arrd all sho could do wrist to close  Iter, eyes   again   and   sigh   faintly.  Lord Otway stood by irresolute,  with the station- riiasier.

I think we  should have a doctor. Arid does any  one know where she lives? She ought  to be taken liome."  Lord Otway . was starting to run  off rapidly for medical help when tho  old lady stopped him. ,  "Can't the porter bring the doctor? I think the child would liko  to speak to you, sir."  Lord Otway flushed a* little, but  .without a word, turned and re-entered the waiting- room. '  Katharine's eyes   rested   on  him  as  he came up to tier.  She stretched out,  her  trembling hand.  "I���������I want to thank you," she said  faintly. "You saved ���������my���������my life;  it .was vory good of youi"  Lord Otway looked down for an instant at the delicate hand that lay-  like a lily on his sunburnt palm, then  his fingers closed tin it.  "I did nothing��������� absolutely nolh-  ingl'' he answered hurriedly, "Vou  were in no imr.itrdi itely danger. forCy  feared you had hurt yourself, and I  ara grieved to find, through this kind  lady, that my tear was too well founded."  ��������� ���������       ������������������;���������.���������  "I have twisted my foot, but it  will be better directly, and I must  get homo as soon as I   can.' ,  Katharine spoke bravely, but ho  saw by the twitching of her white lips  and the convulsive movement of the  hand he still held that she was even  now in great pain.  "May I help you still further?  Please let me?" he urged eagerly. "Is  there anything you' want? Can I do  anythingt"  Katharine drew her bund from his  and tried to bring herself into a  sitting   position.  "I must, get back to Ledstpne, at  once,'* sho murmured, and then hor  strength failed her and she had to  sink down on the cushions and close  her eyes.  JLord Otway felt a sudden thrill of  tenderness strike  his   heart.  "I���������I am afraid''that will bo impossible," he replied gently. "You see you  cannot move. The doctor- will be here  directly, and p?rlraps he maygivc ycu  his permission, but I doubt it���������I do  mdeed. You are not strong enough  to stand,   I can see that for myself.  Katharine made no reply; she lelt  terribly troubled. What would-Mrs..  Smythe think or her absence.? How-  anxious and frightened she would be!.  Lord Otway's voice broke in on her  musings. It was odd how curiously  his tones seemed to breathe an atmosphere of comfort to her!  "Will you let nis send a telegram  to your friends! That will set their  mtndd at rest."  Katharine feehly shook her head..  She knew- how timid Lucy Srnythe  was; she would always turn pale and  shrink from the very sight of a buff-  colored envelojie, and she had not beon  well in tire morning.

The intolerable bursting sense of  fear that Gordon's crime would be  discovered, and the mother's heart  be torn with anguish, shunie and despairing grief;: the effort to keep her  emotion hidden from her cousin; the  growing loathing and horror of Ih*  man for whom she was about to sacrifice herself. Then the hurried note  from -Gordon telling her he had arranged everything; the license was  taken, tho one day necossary had expired, and he was awaiting her in  Northrminster for the fulfillont of her  promise that was to give hira safety.  London had been impossible. Katharine could not have gone thero wi.hout  curiosity. She occasionally went  over to Nort.hmi.n.ster to shop for Airs.  Smyihe nnd herself, as Gordon knew.  Therefore the'marriage was fixod lo  take place at the registrar's office.  In .-ill the long forty- eight hours  tliat had elapsed beforo the note  reached her, not a sign of tho murdered man came forward to convict  and condemn the ���������murderer; nnd now  Gordon Smythe was safe.thts hot .fuly  afternoon, as he was whizzed through  the country to London. For Katharine Breroton had not failed; sh*; had  kept her word, and was his wife���������wife  to* a man who was to her tho modi  horrible thing in the whole world!.

And then, utterly regard loss of his  costume, Lord Otway walked to tho  booking- office and took a ticket for  Ledstono. _ Ha suddenly felt a curious sensation come stealing over him  that he would take a ticket fur  Kanrschatka, or the world's end, if  thereby hu might sof.ure the exquisite, delight of gazing into Katharine's  lovely eyos.  CnAtVl-EI.il V.  Tho doctor's large, roomy brougham wentr tlirough Aorthininster's  wide, picturesque streets at a nice  even pace, out notwithstanding ali  the coachman's criro thu jolting caused Katharine inotit terrible pain, and  gcod- heart oil Miss Weston was growing quite arrxrous as she gazed r.t the  sweet face, ail drawn and contracted  with suffering, thu pai.'or increasing  every moment.

Still the little old maid,  brave and kind as she was, could not  help regretting that that nice young  man had not come with her, nnd it  .was with extreme joy Unit sho dis-  coveied Dr. Stewart standing on lier  dooistep ns tho carriage pulled up.  "I am in excellent time,'' he said,  coming forward to open tho door, "t  just mot tho porter running up with  a message tor Lord Otway, to the  Mupie Tree House, aud he "told mo  you had kindly come forward to this  young lady's rescue; now, would you'  like to make any airangementa first,  before my man and I lift her out,  beonuso I should wish to havo her  Icpt perfectly quiet when we have  placed  her down,  so���������'*  "I will speak to Dorcas,'- was Miss  Weston's J'ep/y, nnd she tripped up  the spotless steps, and after a line!  ���������..lerviuw. with her old- fashioned  maid, returned quickly.

Jane ite Unexpected, f
By ANNIE P. DftBIE. .���*
ANTE TII011XT0X reclined nt ease
irr  the most luxurious of hammocks,   on    the    roomiest  and
shadiest of verandahs. The warm
June sun tried in vain to reach
her through tlio thick curtain of
wisteria and Virginia creeper.   Jane felt
that  she owed   it   to  herself  to   take
-things easy after nil her efforts of tho
past two weeks.   Siie had entertained all
ier friends, nnd paid all Irer social debts.
She felt that sbe could look the whole
world in the face, for she owed not any
man���or woman either, which was moro
to tire point.    Such a  time as she had
had, too, with mother away in Europe���
not that she was  much  help when site
was at home���and  Irow   terribly  disappointing cook had been, witli her father
���taking sick just at  the  very  time  she
was most needed!    Tommy Irad done errands  und  carried   iiiess.ijjc**.,  but  small
���brothers of twelve are not always to be
counted   upon.    It   laid   taken   nothing
short of  two  evenings  and   two  afternoons to get around all tlie people in her
set.   It was really an awful thing to live
���11 one's life in a growing country town;
one's circle of friends was ever growing
wider and  entailing larger responsibilities in entertaining.  And owing to mother's ill-health  tlrey  had  been  in everybody's debt���in everybody's, tlrat is, but
the Martins'.   It was" really too contemptible the way those people acted!   Tliey
.were asked everywhere, arrd never gave
as much as an old-fashioned tea in return.    And they were such pretty girls,
too,  and  so popular  with   the  men, it
���seemed too bad to'cut them.   But why
on earth couldn't they give something!*
Even if it were only an "At Home," that
���one only goes to to show one's newest
���gown.   And then the mean little tricks
they Tesorted to!     Just  as  everybody
was getting tired of inviting them, and
tbey were just about to topple oil the
social wave, thoy always gave out that
they were going to have a large party,
were going to ask  everybody;   and on
the strength of this tliey received invitations for the rest of tire season.    But
tire "large party" always failed to materialize.    Some  of  their  intimate  friends
said  it was because  their upstairs was
-"awfully shabby;" but really, if people
couldn't keep in  the swim  they sliould-
relire from the struggle gracefully.   At
-any rate, Jarre had left tlrem out*  she
.was not going to be imposed upon.
A light step ori the walk startled Jane
Irom her reverie, and her bosom friend.
Eleanor Smith, came tripping up in ra-
-diaut summer garb.
"IIow can you lie there this lovely
'���morning? You sard you had ever so
many things to see to before going to
"the mountains. Are you going next
week?" Eleanor's conversation consisted
largely of questions that she seldom gave
one time to answer.
"Oh, well, I need a rest before I go.
:No one ever w.-.nts to go to a slimmer resort fagged out. You know how wearing it is," said Jane.
��� "What do you think I got nt thc post
thia morning? Guess who is giving a
tea!" and Eleanor held up a dainty pale
pink envelope bearing lier address in a
delicate hand. "You could never guess in
���the world! I nearly fainted with".surprise'when' I saw whom it was from!"
"The Martins?" faltered Jane at a
^venture.
"How in the world did you know?"
<said Eleanor. "Someone told you, of
(course.1'
"No, indeed," said Jane; "youi* mind
must have communicated it to mine."
��� "Well, they are actually giving a garden party! They have asked everybody.
���You should have been at the post to sec
..������fall the people walking off-with pink envelopes. It looked too funny 1" laughed
[Eleanor. "What shall you wear, Jane?
[Your new gown from J���"a?"
"Perhaps I sha'n't be invited," said
Uane. "You know I left them out when
d gave iny parties, and I fancy Mrs. Mar-
jtin and Lou are rather cool to me when
������we meet."
"Oh, the ideaI" sard Eleanor.    "Just
..*9 if-every hair of their heads doesn't
!owe you an invitation!   Of course you'll
.���'���be asked!"
.   "When is it to be?" asked Jane.
j   "To-morrow.   I met Mrs. Skimmer and
���she told me all about it.   That woman
knows everything.   It's a mystery to mc
jwhere she gets her news.   The party-is
(for Bob Martin, who has done so well
out in Vancouver.   He is making a flying
.visit, and they have to give something
���for him, you know.    I shall  wear my
pink muslin with the frills.    What are
you going to do this afternoon, Jane?"
====^-Nothi-ng-in**particuInr.���I=am=goingHo
the Willsons' for a while this evening,
��feut shall come homo early."
^i   "f. promised in a moment of weakness
���to take Bee nnd Jacky to the Beach this
afternoon," said Eleanor.    "I can't get
out of it.   Come along and help me take
care of them.   We can have tea there ]
and you can go to the Willsons' after."
"Very well," snid Jane; "I shall meet
you on the two o'clock boat. The sail
will do me good."
Eleanor went off, leaving Jane to review the possibilities of her wardrobe in
thc event of her  being in> ited.-to  the
Martins'.   Her blue muslin with the'.lace
was still fresh, but then pale blue was
rather trying to any but the most youthful complexion by daylight.    Why not
wear her cream voile with  the medal-j
lions?   It was intended for swell occasions at the Mountain House, and she
might as well look her best, especially
as Bob Martin  would  be  there.    One
cannot afford to overlook   possibilities
when one is thirty-two.      ���������
j   When Tommy came in to lunch the
pink envelope was not forthcoming. Jane'
. felt some misgivings; but when she ques-1
tioned him and found that he had been
off at Loon Lake all morning w*ith Iris,
^chum, Dick Winters, and had forgotten
to go to the post-office, she felt relieved. I
Luncheon was late, so that Jarre had noi
time to call at  the  post-oflicc  herself ;j
in fact, she had no time to think about'
Martins, garden purty, or anything but
catching the boat. *
���*.-, The afternoon was anything hut dull,
with the children to be amused and res-'
cued from several more or less perilous
situations. Eight o'clock found tlrem
making the home trip, each with a
young Smith fast asleep on her hands.
Jane hurried on to the Willsons', where
she spent the evening, and twelve o'clock
'wag just chiming out as she reached
home, weary in overy limb.
�� As -"'ie pasted through tiro hall on her
ways placed���tnere, sure enough, was tiie 1
pink envelope directed to her in a neat j
handI o
Next liiornii!*-* Jane slept late, and hi'd
to rush aborrt to keep her appointments
at* various dressmakers' and dry goods
shops. Several times she met Bessie
Martin, who greeted her with the most
engaging ot* smiles. She was late for
luncheon, and had barely time to snatch
a little rest before it was time to dress
for the Martins' party.
This was a very important ceremony.
Baths and wavings of hair and arrangement of laces absorb a large amount of
time; but when at last Miss Thornton
sallied forth she was well satisfied with
the result. To see Irer sauntering leisurely along, the perfection of grace and
elegance, one could never have guessed
how hard it had been to get her back
hair done at the proper angle or the
fearful strrrggle she had had in getting
arrayed in her new voile.
When she reached lier destination the
party was in progress. Some of the
younger guests were playing tennis,
while others were scattered in groups on
the lawn. The older Iinlic3 preferred to
remain chatting indoors or hugged the
verandahs, trying to look as if tlrey
were thoroughly enjoying themselves.
Jane mnde lier way to the drawing-
room, where the Mirtins were receiving
their gue3ts. - As they greeted her she
was conscious of a peculiar note in their
cordiality, a vague indefinable something
which quickly communicated itself to
her. A sort of veiled* surprise, impossible
to explain or describe. She was presented to the cousin, who proved to be a fine-
looking man of simple manners, with
whom one was at case in a moment. But
much ns Jane felt inclined to stay and
enjoy his society, she felt impelled to get
away as soon as she could decently make
her escape. After partaking of the ethereal viands usually served on sueh occasions, Jane made her ndieux, excusing
herself on the ground that she had many
preparations to make for her intended
journey.
On the way home, try as she would,
she could not account for the strange
feeling she had experienced on greeting
the Martins. There was something wrong,
hut what? As she neared home an awful
thought struck * her. She hurriedly
opened the door and rushed to the hall-
table. There lay the pink envelope still
unbroken. She hastily tore it open, aruj
read the following:

toe.
Jane turned cold and collapsed on the
lowest step of the stair, utterly regard
less of her new voile in her humiliation.
Was  ever  anyone  in such  a  predicament?   What would the Marlins.think?
And .Bob-Martin!    And  she  hnd made
such a good Impression.   If she hnd ouiy
opened that envelope, and not taken so
much*for granted!    How should she ever
explain?    She could not cat at dinner,
thinking and planning out wny3 of making tho  matter right;   and by bedtime
she had in imagination apologized ami
explained to the Martins in about twenty different ways.   Occasionally the ridiculous: side of Tit would conic uppermost
nnd she would: laugh "'heartily,' but misery
returned when she faced tho awful-facts
���    Her sleep that night was troubled, but
when morning    came    her  resolve was
made.   Taking the pink envelope in lier
hand she started out, dreading the en
counter and trying to imagine what the
Martins would   do  and "say.    She   war-
shown into the drawing-room, and \yhen
Mrs. Martin came in a few* minutes later
Jane at once entered upon her difficult
task.   Of course they treated the-mistake'as a huge joke, and Jane soon felt
quito reassured.    In the midst of it nil
JBob Martin came: in and joined in their
laughter, rind the end'of it was that his
visit was not the Hying one he had intended.   He lingered on in M. for some
weeks longer, much  to the surprise of
Mrs. Skimmer and gossips of her type.
Somehow Jane postponed her visit to the
mountains,  and   when   her   mother  returned home three months later there

Weighing- a. i bought.
Professor W. G. Anderson of Yale University  lately   succeeded  in   practically
weighing tlie result of a thought's action.      A student   was   placed    on    a
"muscle-bed,"    poised     on     a    balance.
bo.   that    the  center    of   gravity    of
his  body  was  exactly  over  its  center.
When he was sot to solving mathematical  problems,   the  increased  weight  of
blood at his head changed his center oi
gravity and caused an immediate dip oi
the balance to that side.   Repeating the
multiplication    table    of   nines    caused
greater displacement than repeating the
table of lives, and, in general, that displacement grew greater with greater intensity of thought.   Carrying the experiment further, the experimenter had the
student imagine  himself going through
leg-gymnastics.     Aa he performed    the
feats  mentally,  one  by  one,  the  blood
flowed to thc limbs in" suilicient quantities to tip the balance according to lho
movement thought of.    Uy purely mental action the center of gravity, of th*
body   was   shifted   four   inches,   or   as
much as  by  raising  the  doubled  arms
ahove the shoulders.   These experiment",
were repeated on a large number of students, with  the same  results. I
To test still further the mastering influence of mind over muscle, the strength
of the right and the left arms of eleven
young men was registered.   The average
strength of the right arms was ono hundred and eleven pounds; of the left arms,
ninety-seven pounds.   The men practised
special exercises with the right hand only
for one week.   Tests of both arms were
again    made, and, while    the    average
strength of the right arm had increased
six pounds, that of the unexercised left
arm had increased seven pounds.    This
showed clearly that the brain action connected  with  the  gymnastics  developed
not only the muscles put in action, out
also  other  muscles   controlled   by   the
same portion of the brain.    This could
only come about by sending blood and
nervous force  to  the  proper  parts  by
purely mental action.   Professor Anderson says of the results:
"I can prove by my muscle-bed that
the important thing in all exercises is
the mental effort, put forth. I can lie
'down.on this muscle-bed and think of a
jig, and though apparently my feet do
not move, and actually the muscles are
not active, the muscle-bed sinks toward
my feet, showing that there has been a
flow of blood toward the muscles, and
that, if I did dance a jig, the muscles
would be well supplied with blood under
this mental stin ulusA-T���J. Lincolt

A story of a roan blind from birth nnd
who can now (He, is told by a London
"JDaily Mail" correspondent. It was on
April 24 that John Carruth left his home
at Croft Head, Bridge of Weir; for the
Glasgow- Ophthalaiic Hospital, where the
operation which gave-him his sight was
performed. "The first face he saw was
that of JDr. Stewurt. : He did not know
what it was at first, but When the doetor
spoke he knew that what he wa3 looking
at must be a face. -It was like a "dream.
'I was bewildered,' said Carruth; 'all
was so beautiful.' Then the day after the
operation. That .was the day the bandages were .removed. Then Carruth beheld the first woman he had ever seen.
She was.Nurse Mellor. 'I knew she was
a woman because her face was pale and
smooth. I was too long in "seeing JDr.
Ramsay.. I should like to have seen his
face first.'
"No words were too good for 'Nurse,'
or for all the nurses. And his mother!
'Witli what: emotion he spoke of the
first time he saw her. 1 kind of surprised
her/ he said, proudly. 'She came to the
ward and said, "How are you getting
on?" Well, I had a peep at her sideways and asked her how many wrinkles
she had on her brow. Then she said,
joyfully, "You can see. How can you
tell? Con you count them?" I could not
see aye enough for that, but I could see
her dear face.'
"Then, what does, he think of women
no*y that he first beholds them? They
are very beautiful, he says. 'Thoy all
seem so good. I think the world and
the people ih it are fine. I have always
(this with a touch of pride) thought a
good deal of the ladies, and now it is so
good* to see their faces, to look at them
m their fine dresses., They always told
me women were my best friends, and I
always knew they were, but now I know
it more than ever. They are so kind and
gentle, beautiful and graceful.'
"What did he think pf the earth ? 'Oh,
it is lovely I So much lovelier and greater than I had ever thought or imagined.
I am surprised and overjoyed. I had
never thought^ there was such.difference,

He had no idea there were so many people on earth. Carruth is in a curious fix

A STORY   OF  A  CLOCK.   &
By JETN'A. *|
,*��$wSk*->3><^..*->^..$
i'M an old grandfather's clock.
In these days, when there's a cry
for "all things new," anything thai
is not "up to date," however interesting and valuable it may be, ii
apt to be relegated to the shelf.
In my long life I must say, truly, 1
have always been treated with the utmost deference and affection, for, you
see, people of good family and high education generally are very much attached
to handsome and useful bits of furniture,
and seldom discard lhem for a fashionable "fad." Anyway, I hear that wo are
quite in demand now, though in bygone
cays there were few houses that could
not boast of one of us, and, to my thinking���but that's neither here nor there.
I am two hundred years old, and not
ashamed to sny so. A good deal of tick ing
I've done in that time, and a good deal
of life I've seen. Ah, me! the changes
that take place, with the llight of ages.
Tire old faces vanish and are replaced by
the younger ones, who irr tlieir turn
have their day and then make way for
others. Yet, looking back, it does not
seem so very long ago tliat ladies wore
powdered hair and patches, and inflated
their gowns with huge hoops, aiid went
a-visiting hi sedan chairs. Queer times
those, when a man was hanged for stealing a sheep and duels were every-day occurrences. 'Twas always love affairs they
fought over. Ladies, I have heard, dye
their hair now, instead of powdering it
and wear gowns in which "the clingin't
effect" is carried to such an extreme
that I marvel how they get in and out
of them. Of course it's a graceful style,
if only people would not carry what tlrey
call "style'' to.such a ridiculous length.
Thank goodness, though,-there are numbers of sensible folk who like to look natural, in spite of the mandates of fashionable  modistes.
I haven't done much traveling. You see,
almost ali my life has been spent with
Scotch people, where, the "auld hoose"
passes fronr generation to generation,
with all its belongings. Many a tale I
could tell, ofttimes humorous and oft-
times sad, for is not life made up of contrasts? I often think what strange
pranks.human- eiDOtion, love, hate, fear,
sympathy, make human beings play!
'At.the time I am'wrilirrg of my; home
was with three old sisters: high-bred, aristocratic   ladies, -with   straight   backs
style too. Just thc day before it was fo
come off an unlucky accident befell the
coachman, who wus to assist in waiting
at table. He sprained his ankle. Mrs.

leaves. If I even began to tell you about
the sweet," old-fashioned flowers that
grew in such profusion.I'd never be abb

Sandy was "awfu' prood of."   And yon
to take his "place. "So everything went
off swimmingly. Whnt a display of fmo
things! The old family plate was all on
show, and made a brave one.
'Twas a bright, happy gathering: many
young, fresh faces, too, amongst it. Tlrat
pleased me; you see, when ono gets old
it seems natural like to feel that way.
Mr. Archie told such amusing anecdotes
of his life in the colonies, and also somo
terrifying ones, principally relating to
his trip to a place called���something end-
in-; with a "dike," where gold was plentiful. I fairly shivered when I heard
them���such hnir-breadth cscapcsl And
there ho was, sitting amongst us, alive
and well, and as jolly���("Come now, old
Grandfather, get on; no havering!")
But I must say, JMr. Archie had been
born with a silver spoon irr his mouth.
A couple of days later 1 overheard Mr.
and Mrs. Archibald talking, as they
were coming down the stairs, ann in nrrrr
���for they were always "that loving." '
She seemed a wee hit put out, for there
were tears in her dark eyes, and she
looked different altogether, for she wns
wearing a black gown instead of the usual white one���a relative had died, I suppose.
It wns the 12th of August, and her
husband was goirrg away for a week'a
grouse-shooting, which begins in Scotland
on that day.
I am soft-hearted. Those tears went
straight to my heart. They are the solace of the old, but the young should not
grieve.
"It's my nose, Archie," she was saying, half laughing, half crying, "I think
I could make them love me if only I
had a 'family nose' and could look stately."
You should have heard Mr. Archie
laugh, and he assured her she hnd the
dearest little nose in the world. It was
the feature in her face he'd first fallen
ia love with, and then he quoted some
poetry about "the petal of a flower"-^
"tip-tilted, like the petal of a flower,"
that was it.
They stopped beside me, "They'll lovs 3
you, never fear, some day, sweetheart,"!
says he. "Won't they, old*fellow?" And J
I struck two o'clock, which signified,!
"They will!" I didn't think, then thatl
������but I'll tell you all about it, j
So v,-e were left alone���and some fine ;
grouse from the moors marts their tap-J
pearancc. Of courso yon know these'
birds are always kept till they are quite j
old, so Susan"took  them down  to  the'
solemnly, tick, tiak,. ticking, calm and.
brave aud strong, I; verily believe* if
that coward had seen and laid a finger
on the little heroine of ihe play I would
have cried out loud.
But he didn't���he just gave, a smoth-
eied cry, a wild glance from right to left,
and then he mado for and was through
tliat small window in a* jiffy. I've often
since wondered how Tie managed, for he
was a phenomenally tall man. He did,
snywRy, and left everything "behind)
even tho blaek bag was dropped in hit
flight.
Our poor little lady had to k��p to hei

tho kind. And I had quite a siege o: indigestion and was al! out of order for
some time after, my heait beatinc* like a
steam engine, and several times 1 struck
twenty-four without stopping.
You may imagine the gratitude of/onr
family and thc praise we both did get.
But what pleased m* more than anything was that, ther: and there, Mr.
Archie's wife, "the thorn in the 'flesh*

One day, when the roses were blooming grandly, an unwonted excitement got
up in the house. I found out that a
young nephew and his bride were expected from across the ocean. Goodness
me, if there wasn't a fuss! I was rubbed

I remembered Mr. Archie���a fine, stalwart young fellow. He had married an
American heiress. The fortune she would
inherit had been made in "trade." Now
this was a great blow to the pride of the
JKer family���besides, they had had other
hopes concerning their nephew. So when
the couple arrivryi I could see they had
hard work to conceal their rather unjust
prejudices. Sho was a tiny creature,
���with large, dark c3res and a plump littlo
figure. I confess I fell in love with her
at the very first, and she seemed equally
taken with me, for she cried out when
passing mc, "Why! what a very qunint,
love of a clock! I dote on these delight-

ai.* about them!" .
6he had an attractive manner, and!
looked kind of shy-like, I thought. You
see, she was but young, poor thing, and
had spent most of her life at un Knglish
boarding-school, I heard. Then, of course,
meeting new relatives must be a littlo
bit trying, even for an American heiress.
It seemed so for her, anyway.
Mr. Archie wus gay and "canty" as
ever. He smiled at me and said: "Well,
old fellow, glad to sec you in such good
healtlrl" Just at that moment I struck
four o'clock, which meant from me, "The
same to youi"
.: When "Petite", (as we all called the
young wife) chose sho could be most fascinating, but I noticed she seemed rather
ill at ease with her new relatives.   You
see, her ways were   so   different   from
theirs.    Her voice wanted softness, and
her expressions were oftenvrather odd.
I  fancied   they  grated  on  the  refined
manners'. ot the old people.   I ��� used to
love  to  listen   to   the   negro   melodies
which she sometimes sang in the evenings, to the accompaniment of the banjo
Her voice  was  clear  and  sympathetic,
but often had a sad rirrg in it, I thought
Peihaps she was a wee bit homesick,'for
all  she -had; a  most  devoted  husband.
Amongst  her   songs   my   favorite   wim
"Swannee Biver"���it  touched me  wonderfully���and then there was the "Canadian Boat Song."    She Would sing that
with Mr. Archie.   I did enjoy that one!
It was such a pity, 1 often thought a��
the days went by, tliat the young crcu*
ture seemed as far away from tire old
ladies' hearts as ever.   The trouble warn
they had made up their minds that thei:
nephew was to marry the fair, tall and
stately daughter of a neighboring bur
onot, who possessed irreproachable mnn
ners and "a. family nose."   Report said,
she had been "fair daft" about our youn*<

Because they cannot stand a. man having all the conversation to himself.

An Eccentric Man's Funeral
���  ��� .^      Sudden Death.    .    --*1
I  am  frequently 'asked   to   cxplaiir
mysterious  cases of sire: "en death oc- -
curring  in   the  poultry  yard,  and    in--."'

the deceased made these provisions for
come.
I was fearfully excited, so muuh so
that my heart beats were louder tlr.in
usual, and how I ached with sympathy
when her littlo mites of hands could
scarcely lock the door of my co*-*?, th.ry
were trembling so! But she did il, anil
slipped the key in within the bodice of
her dressing-gown.
Just a few moments nfter we could
hear the thief's footsteps returning. He
evidently was going to make his exit'by
a small window just behind tho stnir*
cibc, and probably planned throwingth*
booty out and then making away with,
it. But if ever a man hnd mistaken his
vocation, he hnd, for hc hadn't the pluck
of a. mouse in him.
On hearing him returning, she crept
behind me. All her courage must have
left her, for sho just sank down, and I
could hear her poor teeth chatterirrg,
My size and the darkness pretty effectually hid her small figure. Anyway, the;
tvhilom burglar (I could not catch a
glimpse of his face, for his back was to
mo all the time) made direct for that
precious coffee-pot and all the other bits
bf silver that were so dear to my old
mistresses.    He hnd a blnck baize bf>g
his funeral, and which is quite as eccentric as that of the late ,S. ���!. Major of
Ottawa: "That iio' service's of a religious
character be held; that a special train
of Pullmans be chartered to take his remains from I.-ouffivillc���'where he has for
so long been buried alive'���to Cincinnati!
that the buffets of the cars be well
stocked with good things to eat and
drink, in order that his friends do not
tbirat or hunger; that while the remains
are being cremated at Cincinnati an orchestra render a programme of popular
and select music." The programme is attached to the will, and it is stipulated
thatyvhen an intermission is reached the
friends ask the orchestra to join them
"in drinking my bon voyage."
The Playful Czar.
London "Truth."
I do not know whether���as stated by a
medical journal���Peter  the  Great  first
made Spa. a fashionable resort. But what
I do know is that when his Czarisb ifa-
je3ty���as ho was then termed���frequented a watering-place in order to benefit
his  health,   his   habits  were     peculiar.
When lie visited JXfarienbad ort Carlsbad
(I think it was Carlsbad), his doctor recommended him to take three glasses of
water on rising.   The next day, on calling upon him, he found Peter with three
water barrels before him.    He had got
through the first and was attacking tbe
second, but he complained that hc was
already feeling somewhat uncomfortable.
The doetor assured him that ho had recommended three glasses nnd not three
barrels.   In order to twoid such mistakes
iu future,  Peter  took up a pistol  and
shot him through the head.

There  are  two  prr'nei-..*!!   cr.n.cs    of
sudden death in poultry: the one apoplexy���effusion of bloo.i on the brain;-.
thc  other syncope���fata!   fainting���the;
seat of which  is,  of course,    in    the
heart.  Both  these, especially    the former,  can  be  induced  by  over-feeding,.
A  bird   becomes  inordinately   fat,   ifl
Jr'vcr  does  not  act  pr**-)*c,-!y.    and  its
blood becomes sluggis.':.      ijudden ex
citcment  or  a   generally   overwrought
condition of the system" causes, one ot
the tiny vessels  to give  way    in  the
brain, and paralysis  sets  in.     A case
of apoplexy  should  always   be  distinguished  from  one  of syncope by the
paralyzed state of thc bird for    some,
time   before it  dies,  the    head  being
often twisted round, the bird blinking. ;
its  eyes  ai  though  it could    see but.
could not see straight.     On   the other*"
hand,     syncope���fatal    fainting���is   m-
mattcr of a few moments.     The birtf
is apparently weH, but after some mar
usual  piece of exertion it  falls down
and is dead before it can be picked up.
There is practically no cure for cither
of these troubles; thc one is too sudden      altogether, and    thc other���the-
brain   trouble,   apoplex.i ���is   likely  to*
recur.     Often a bird wiil have an apoplectic seizure, and wil! slowlv recover, but until it il -very carefufly looked  after  and  never  allowed   to   overfeed itself, the trouble  is sure to recur.    I   always   advise    fanciers, when
they have had a case or two of sudden   death   among  their   poultry,    to
take it as a warning and  reduce    the
food    allowance   end    treat    them, afi
though  they had liver  complaint���fay
saline   aperients   and   by  giving  thenr*
some work to dotP earn their living'.
This is always safe, and its adoption *r

Obviously the way to learn is to  study tire methods uf men who have succeeded.  Guides to success are ninny. Whnt do tlrey sny ? Be honest. Tell the truth.  Work hard. Save money. Oo $20 worth of work for wages of $$. Such advice  is good, no doubt, ns far as it goes,���������-but is not something more needed?  Did these methods alone muke IIillis, nnd Bok, nnd Reed, and Carnegie,  nnd Curtis, successful ?  Young irrerr nre not fools. Tlrey see thnt there is a secret of success, and  thnt it is more than honesty nnd hard work, else every honest hard worker  would lie successful.  The secret lies in controlling the minds of men. How to make others believe  you, trust you, nnd do what you wish,���������this is what you must learn. To be sure,  few will learn it but those who also work hard and tell the truth. These come  first,���������but tliey are not all.  As n fiuide to the highest success, "Modern Eloquence" has no rival. Itis  a. splendid series of object-lessons by masters iii the art of influencing men's minds.  And the success aimed nt is far more than mere money success. Fame, power, honor,  thc gratitude and love of generations to come,���������these are the rewards which have  spurred to such efforts lire men whose words are gathered in these ten rich volumes.  In " Modern- Eloquence" the men who have won success in every line speak  for our instruction:��������� Q )  In Law, there are Evarts and Phelps, both the Choates, Coudert, and David  Dudley l*'ield.  In Journalism, Dana, Halstead, Watterson, McClure, McKelway, and  Whitelaw Reid.

This maxim  may be "tested by coin-  paring the statistics- given above with  the following  statement of imports of  manufactured goods into the United  Kingdom:  18S3   .  1S90   .  1000   .  So we find that as imports rise exports-are falling.  Nevertheless, yon will often hear  this discredited maxim re-asserted by  those who prefer the theories of 60  years since to the. experience of today.  The same theory-loving politicians  and economists are opposing the suggestion of Preferential Tariffs, or  Reciprocity with the Colonies, on the  gi-ound that our commercial prosperity rests solely on free trade.  Germany and the United. States are  both highly protected countries. They  enter our market freely, but make us  pay in import duties for access to  theirs.  The statistics given above prove that  to say thc least, the advantage does  not lie altogether with one-sided free  trade against protection.

Taking the self-governing  Colonies alone, the increase was  ������18.225,000, or 15 per cent.  This increase is partly due to the  system of preferential tarilfs instituted  by Canada.  In July, 1002. the Colonial Premiers,  at the Conference in London, passed  unanimously resolutions:  (1) Recognising that the principle of  preferential trade between the United  Kingdom and His Majesty's dominions  beyond tho seas ivotild stimulate and  facilitate mutual commercial intercourse, and would strengthen the  Km pi re:  (2) Declaring it lo be desirable that  all thoColoniesshould give preferential  treatment to tho products and manufactures of the United Kingdom:  (3) Respect fully urging upon His  Majesty's Government the expediency  of granting in the United Kingdom  preferential treatment to the products  and manufactures of the Colonics.

Then'  .we think of the enormous treasures the  English,   Spaniards   and   Dutch   have  harvested from their tropical colonies,  and naturally we think that the tropica  axe the richest regions of the world.  'All this may be true, yet nevertheless,*  In another sense, instead c*f being rich,  the tropics are fatally poor.   Unable to  6ecure the necessaries of life, the people of tropical countries are like the  man In whose hand everything turns  to gold, yet who perishes of hunger and  thirst  \ "Of all the breadstuffs necessary for  s man the tropics furnish only corn anJ  rice, sad these only to a limited extent.  1*hey have no wheat, rye or irotatoes.  .The banana may be, as Humboldt says,  133 times more productive than wheat  end 44 times more so than potatoes,  yet it cannot replace either as food,  dor-can white men live for any length  of time on rice and corn alone, nor on .  bananas and palm nuts. Native tropical foods can only hold body and soul  together, as they furnish but little  .vigor, energy and power. No machine  can do good work with poor fuel. A  man who has neither bread nor meat  cannot get life and strength and push  from tea, coffee, sugar, vanilla and all  precious spices. Tropical products ara  merely commercial luxuries, and if the  Inhabitants of cold climas did not buy  them the people of the tropics would  lack the necessaries and comforts oi  life and would yet choke with their  Bwn riches. ' *"'  "lt we wish to know the effects of  the poordlet of the tropics combined  .with the effects of the heat, we hare  only to look at the inhabitants of these'  couBtries. As a general rule, they aro'  thin, poorly built and unfit for intellectual or physical labor. Occasional1  exceptions will only confirm the rule..  I "Eren the foods which are produced,  are insufficient ln amount, so that the.  least Interference with the annual  crops results in famines, as Is the case  ln India today. Indeed, India has always been the land of fabulous riches  of a few and of famines of the millions.  Until recently in the cold countries  there were none of fabulous wealth aid  but few famines.  "Bverything in hot conatries la  liar-nful to man; ths -pround, the water  and the air, swarming with miasms  and Tennln, and with torment and daa-  ���������per.

Their chief argument against pure  breeds is that the success is in the  feeding���������"the trough is the breed''���������  and, while it is admitted that breed unsupported by the trough can never  prove a profitable agent under any circumstances unless the proper breed lie  used for the purpose to be attained.  Good breeds require good feeding, but  they give greater returns for such  treatment than can be procured from  common stock under similar treatment.  The difr'.ctitly in the way uf breeding is  that farmers do not familiarize themselves with the characteristics of the  breeds. Some dairymen who sell milk  improve thoir stock carefully to the  best of their knowledge by procuring  Jerseys. Such cases, in which m li*  dairymen introduce dairy blood iir their  herd's with a view of increasing milk  production, 'arc often 'noticed, not supposing that because the Jerseys arc better adapted to butter-making they have  no high records for milk production.

There  are besides the tire Insurance annual bill  and   the   bill   for  the   Hie   stations,   with  their  costly sites  nrrd   buildings,   tlie  fire  engines,   the   other   machinery   and   the  horses.    All   this   outlay   keeps   us  poor.  But   the   loss   of   life   IS    worse,   and   it  is  easy  to  build   fireproof��������� or better.

Then  there is no nSilrtlirg or parr-  elling.    In Britain cement should be used  for   that   purpose,   aud   there   should   be  no   boxing   of   doors   and   windows,     the  fra.mes being built in securely.

To make dairying profitable the  dairyman must first determine his preference as to whether he intends to sell  milk, butter, or both. The cow is the  machine that converts food into more  salable products. She is the factory  which manufactures either milk or butter, and she must be the right kind of  cow for the purpose required or she  will be a failffre. If she is to give a  large yield* of milk daily for immediate  sale it will* be a rare exception if she  is a Jersey, and 3rs the dairyman has  the privilege of breeding exactly the  kind of anima\l that will suit his purpose, he alone, and not the cow, will be  at fault if his milk supply i3 not up to  the highest yield.  There is another thing the dairyman  must guard agfiinst, whicli is that a  milch cow must not convert her food  into beef. If a cow is intended for  milk she must be a milk machine and  Mrs. Smeaton, wife of tlie Hon. B.-*nald  Bmeaton, in a letter to Tlie Daily News,  throws some light on tlie remarkable incident, of the Maharajah of Benares'  Ivory suite of furniture, which hns been  acqu^d by Lord Curzon. "While travelling in tbe Northwest Provinces," says  Mrs. Smeaton, "I wa.s huspitably invited  by the Maharajah to rest a day at Benares in his guest-house, Nardosur. His  TDIwan (Minister), who received me,  apologized for the bareness of the stateroom, explaining that the line old suite of  carved Ivory furniture, presented to nn  nncestor of the present Mahal ajah, as  reward for services to the British Government, had been taken by the Viceroy,  who had intimated his desire to possess  it. This, to a native gentleman. Is equivalent to a command, so lhe Maharajah  received 'In exchange' n rllle (which a  roll-known sportsman In lhe district valued nt about 30 gulne.-isi. uml sent his  heirloom, nt his own uxpeusu, to Calcutta. There i saw part ot' It nt the  School of Art, being repaired urrder tho  supervision of Mr. llaxoll, Iho .superintendent, who declared the exquisite painted carvings to bo unique, and, though  said to have cost originally n thousand  pounds, to be now practically priceless,.  To anyone, like myself, who has seen  the carvings, the idea that they are  worth, as is declared, but ������100 is ridiculous. My memory still retains visions  of the exceeding beauty of the delicately-  tinted wreaths of flowers and leaves,which  formed tho bands of tho couches, chairs  and stools���������Incrustations, ns it were, In  solid ivory, of old-world broideries. One  word more. The Maharajah was most reluctant to part with his possession. Pair  play, honesty of purpose and consideration  in dealing with native chiefs have hitherto been conspicuous qualities in our Indian administrators; tbey have', to say the  least, been compromised in this transaction." The Hon. Mrs. Smeaton's husband has spent over 30 years' in India  and Burmah. He is now Financial Commissioner of Burmah and a member of  the Viceroy's Legislative Council���������p'osts  bo high that on the one hand they guarantee the authenticity of Mrs. Smeaton's  information, and,- on the other, they make  it almost impossible for Mr. Smeaton to'  long remain in them under Lord Curzon.  In the House of Commons, in reply to  Mr. MacNeill, Lord George Hamilton  stated that thia ivory suite of furniture  was "lying in an unoccupied house In a  very dilapidated condition. The. Viceroy,  having ascertained' that the Maharajah  took no interest In it, offered to buy it;  and when the Maharajah offered to present it.explalnod that according to Tosha-  kand rules, he could not .accept presents.  "Having ascertained that tho Maharajah was fond of sporting weapons, and  would like a* first-class rifle, the Viceroy  ordered one at JES1, which he exchanged  for the  furniture."  The furniture has since been restored  at the Viceroy's expense (������S0), and Is  valued by an expert at ������100, say3 this  official explanation.

One of the most Interc-sting discoveries made by tho savants in their experiments was that an inoculated  mother can impart immunity to her  offspring. A tabby cat was one of tlio  ���������many subjects employed. Chbrn venom -was pumped into her tilcod by  slow degrees until sho was in fit condition to play tag with a* family of  snakes and not come to any Harm.  ShcrLly afterward she presented tha  ^ratified scientists with a family of  six bouncing kittens���������which meant to  them six new subjects for experiment.  Those unhappy kittens soon felt tire  .prick of the hypodermic needle* and  the sickness that follows small' doser,  of snake poison, and, not knowing  that ft was in the interests of*' mankind, they doubtless felt aggrieved.  The astonishing part of It' -was- that  they proved not at. all susceptible to  -tho venom, and the obvious conclusion was that the mother's milk immunized them. One of them, actually  withstood twice the lose largeenougTi  to kill a full grown cat. Ic fe sad'to  record that the savants, hungry* for  precise facts, killed another of tho  kittens by injecting a triple*dose.*  It is generally supposed that snako  poison taken Into the stom-aeli has no  effect upon the system, but Dr. Frazer has come to the conclusion that it  acts as a prophylactic.against snakebite Just as quinine does against  malaria.  This is one of the* instances in*  which science has confirmed a discovery of savage man. The Bushmen ot  South Africa swallow the poison bags  of snakes to make themselves immune from the fangs, and the blacks  of Australia, by eating venomous  snakes whole, arri-re at the same Jesuit In addition to providing themselves with a hearty meal when kan-  graoos are scarce.

CHAPTER XXT.  lawyer Saybrook had very littlo 01  the sentimental in his disposition. But  Who is proof against the rosy archer at  all times p.nd under all circumstances?  The time comes when the most wary  must be taken in a snare.  The elder Saybrook entered his domicile one day, with thoughts Intent upon  business. He wished to have a talK  -with Ralph, who, however, was not in  the ofllce. He made his way to the domestic department where Mrs. Grewy  presided. That excellent housekoepez  had been engaged in moulding bread,  and three shapely loaves stood on the  moulding board as he entered. Mrs.  Grewy . blushod "slightly, and then  ���������smiled sweetly, as she saw the lawyer.  Somehow, It had never before struck  TMr. Saybrook that Mrs. Grewy was an  attractive female, but Just at this par  tlcular moment it flashed on him that  the widow, as she stood with her  sleeves rolled up above her elbows  showing a white and shapely arm, and  ���������with a Jaunty cap on her head, present.  ���������ed rather a handsome ; figure. This  thought entered the: lawyer's mind, but  hia immediate object was to enquire  'for Ralph, so he said:  ' "'Has Ralph been In, Mrs. Grewy'?"  -"He went out about half ��������� an hour  ago," replied Mrs. Grewy, and again a  : rosy hue suffused her face. Now, there  was really no reason for -the widow  to blush.'.'.'.������������������Mr. Saybrook's objeot. waa  plainly, very prosaic, and : there -was  certainly nothing unusual in his inquiring for -his son. Still, his sudden advent had evidently so accorded -with  some fancy of tie widow's as to produce the tell-tale signal. In question.  "Did he say When he would be back?"  continue!} the lawyer.  "Oh, bless- you, no," -replied the  ���������widow; "he never does, you know.; and  J shouldn't presume to ask."  "Or didn't say .where he was going?"  "Oh, dear, no, Mr. Saybrook; but then  If you are anxious to know, I might  make a pretty good guess. He dressed  himself with unusual care, and I suspect that he was going Tup -to Mr.  Bruyn's."1  .And having said this,, the widow  thought it proper to look down archly,  ���������and.again let a rosy tinge suffuse her  face.  Now the lawyer-had been fully .answered, and there was no occasion for  ihim to remain longer Iri the kitchen.  ���������But he hesitated a moment, and .then  advanced toward the table where tho  (Widow had been at <work.  "Making; bread, eh?" he said.    "Really, Mrs. Grewy, I must compliment  _****ou.on,yourself ort.  The effect of these words on tha  iwldow was truly remarkable. They hot  'only caused her to blush again in a  very charming manner, but the lawyer  oouM havo sworn tbat In the space ot  about three seconds she grew twenty  years younger, so pleased and animated did she become under .the effect of  liis compliment,  Now the truth was that the widow  had long worshipped ln silence the  stately lawyer, and had ln fancy cherished the idea that he would make a  more than Acceptable substitute for the  late Mr. Grewy, who ln truth had been  but a plain and illiterate, though good-  natured   blacksmith.     Mr.   Saybrook, :  -   - ,,   ,  liowever. had hitherto never manifested   *Ii?er' and Bee U th?y areJ.,aU r'Kht*  "Well," said the lawyer, "I ngre<  with you about Ralph. The girl will b<  fortunate who gets hirrr. And yet 3  om particularly anxious about this ires*  ent affair of his. I think he is getting  along, Mro. Grewy. I do not think i!  would be any mistake to have It understood that he Is lo marry Rosa, but o!  course I would not wish to have II  known as coming from mo, you know."*  "Oh, certainly nol," replied thi  ���������widow. "Really, I ar. quite surprised-  ond pleased, too, although one may bi  eure that Ralph cannot get anybody  too good for him."  "Well, if Ralph comes In this way,  tell him I want to see him," said th*  lawyer. "I am going up In. the office."  "But won't you have Just a bite of  something before you go, Mr. Saybrook," inquired the widow, with a sudden display of tender anxiety for his  carnal comfort. "Let me ��������� show you  some cake I have Just been baking."  "No, no, Mrs. G rewy; ..not at present; do notdisturb yourself. I must go  at once."  And so the lawyer loft, having succeeded in raising the most ardent hopes  in. the bosom of the widow that - she  .would yet be the rich and distinguished  ���������lira. Saybrook, while he had at the  same time taken tho best measure possible to have It publicly understood that  'Ralph and Rosa were irot only engaged  but very shortly to be married. He  took his accustomed seat In his office,  and hour after hour flew by while ha  [was deeply absorbed in writing.  I  At last Ralph came In.  "Eh, Ralph," said the elder man,  "take a seat. Just home, eh? Well,  ���������what lucy to-day? Any more favorable  report."  "Well, slightly, perhaps," replied tha  young man, drawling out his tones with '  easy indifference. "It isn't my tactics,  you know, to hurry matters. I undertook to press my claims a little to-day,  however, and succeeded in extracting  the answer that, while I was held in  the deapest respect, it was not possible  that I could become the recipient of  anything more than friendship while  any doubt remained as to the actual  sentiments of a certain young gentleman now in Europe. Not a very encouraging answer, perhaps; but infer-  entially I see therein a sign of hope."  "Ralph, I am rather out of patience  iwlthyou," exclaimed the father.: "And  yet I admire your imperturbable coolness. But I never can bear to delay in  ���������such matters as this. There is no telling what new difficulty will spring up.  That girl's obstinacy annoys me exceedingly. Everything Is' straight now* It  It wasn't * for her Infatuation for that  * young fool of a Rolff. I have the old  man completely in my power, I think,  and I believe I could speedily.bring him  to exert his authority. But you have  been so opposed to it, I have hesitated."  "Well," interposed Ralph, "I don't  "know but that I am getting a little  tired of the way matters are going myself. I don't like to own up beat in  such a contest���������in fact, I.don't; but if  time is a question of moment, I donTt  know that I should object to a little  pressure 'being used."  "Well," responded the elder, "I have  a plan In my mind to. stir up the old  gentleman that I think will work satisfactorily, and I must put it in opera/  tion."  ��������� "What is  It?"  asked  Ralph.  ! .-"Well, never mind at present," replied his father."All you need concern yourself about is to note the result. Old Bruyn will doubtless be ln  this evening, and I shall see what I can  'do with-him. My idea Is, that if we  can only induce him to bring a moderate amount of pressure to bear on Rosa  she will speedily, yield. This Is the sentimental period of her existence, and  young Rolff having secured the flrst  place in her affections, she naturally  clings to him. It ls very natural, and,  ln fact, she is to be'eommended for it;  only it is cursed inconvenient for us.  But she will not be a whit less devoted  "to~ydu7^my_bo'yr~ift"er"^he^nceTnaK(Mr  up her mind to accept you as her lover.  She ls rather more constant .than her  sex generally, and I like her .the better  for it."  < "She's a tip-top girl," replied Ralph,  "and I'm hanged if I don't grow to  like her better every time I see hor.  She's the soul of sweetness and sincerity, and I'm almost sorry for her, she  grieves so over that fellow Claude. But  of course I'll make her a better hus-  ���������fcand, and I fancy I'll cure her yet of  admiration for anybody beside myself."  "Well, Ralph, we'll hope for the best,  and work for lt as well. And now Just  look over these papers in Saybrook vs.  ���������Parmer Bruyn, "first sell me the wood  lot, and the meadows next to the road.  Jt'll pay more than lie will."  I "Ah, but, my dear sir, that would  cripple the balance of the estate, and  spoil my bargain."  I "But you promised me," said the farmer doggedly, flushing up in a way that  Showed how deeply he was interested.  1 "I said I would consider your claims;  but the fact is, my dear Mr. Bruyn, I  trD not wish to sell the place at all. My  ambition has been to put it in repair,  and deed the place to Ralph as a wedding present, of course calculating also  to make" it my own home for the balance of my days. If there were an7  immediate prospect of Ralph getting  married, I might still adhere to my  plans���������in fact, I undoubtedly would;  but it is an expensive project, and one  I worrld not care to undertake witJiout  the boy was to make a good match  with a young lady who would have  something to add to his own fortune  and enable them to support the place  in the style it would require. As matters are, however, there seems no immediate prospect of Ralph succeeding  with the only matrimonial suit he has  yet undertaken���������of course, my dear sir,  you know to what. I refer���������and the old  place Is rather a weight Dn my hands;  and I don't know as I am Justified in  refusing such  an  excellent offer.    Cf  Course, my dear Mr. Bruyn, I would  like to oblige you, if my interests rendered lt In any way admissable. The  truth is, I have indulged the fond hope  that Ralph would succeed in his suit  with your daugl.ar and that thus our  two properties, which seem destined  naturally to be united, would come together as the Joint property or our  children. But, of course, you know, Mr.  Bruyn���������"  "No, I* don't know," interrupted tht  old man. "I thought we understood  each.other pretty well on that subject,  and as far as I'm concerned, I don't see  why there ls any trouble about it."  "Ah, but Ralph informs me that your  daughter positively refuses to give up  her belief in the good faith of her former lover,-Claude Rolff, and make3  every prospect of his winning her hand  dependent upon her being flrst fully assured, that young Rolff will hot return  to fulfill his pledges. Of course, that  creates an obstacle whose removal ls  so uncertain and indefinite that lt  seems absolutely foolish, from a business point of view, to refuse a good offer to sell in order to take such improbable chances."  Farmer .Bruyn satdown the glass he  had been holding in his hand, and leaned forward in his chair.  . "And so Rosa tells Ralph she intends  to marry Claude Rolff yet?" he asked.  "That's about it," replied the lawyer.  "She seems to have full faith that ho  will come back, and is resolved at least  to wait and give him the chance to  claim her."  The farmer leaned back ln his chair,  and laughed heartily.  "Ab, sir, she's a rare girl, and, by my  "Sunder, I believe she's got some of my  own grit in her. . But don't you fear  sir;.she'll never throw herself away on  that young scamp. I'll take'care of  that. She's always been a good girl,  and she'll do as I say, I'll warrant. I've  taken a liking to Ralph myself, and  Rosa will like him too, yet. But he's a  dunder head. Why don't he spark her  so as to cut out that young scamp?  'Ain't got the courage, of a mouse, eh.  Sir���������ha, ha, ha! 'Twasn't so when I  was a young man. I never gave nry  wife any peace till she,said she'd have  me. She was bound she Wouldn't marry  me, but.I was bound; to haye' her, and  I got her. No.-no; Rosa's all right It's  Ralph that don't know how to manage.  Well, I must see to it���������I must see to it.  It won't do to have our plans broken  up.'  "It would grievj me exceedingly," replied the lawyer. "I had already begun to make my estimates for having  the old house, repaired and fixed over,  .when, this offer; came, and, together  with Ralph's despondent report, set me  to thinking seriously. But, of course,'  my dear Mr. Bruyn, as you say, w*e  must not allow our plans to fall througt  so easily. I am disposed now to agree  with you that the fault is partly  Ralph's. I must talk to him, and give  Thim some advice. These young people  need the supervision and advice of their  parents, Mr. Bruyn'.  "Aye, that they do; and I mean my  daughter shall have It-"  . Thus under the influence of wine and  the blandishments of the lawyer, the  old farmer was fully caught in the trap  that had been laid for him; and, after  some further talk, he started for liome,  full of thoughts and plans that boded  nojaDDinega tn Rosa. . __^. ���������__'   the slightest interest in the widow's  efforts to please him, and this sudden  unbending quite took her by surprise.  fl*he lawyer, though, had long been  aware of the not very carefully concealed worship of his * housekeeper, but,  While lt had not been displeasing to his  .Vanity, to reciprocate her sentimental  attitude was about the last thing he  (would have thought of under ordinary  circumstances. **  *   But this digression Is  delaying   the  -widow's answer.

Borne days passed by, and the toils  about poor Rosa Bruyn grew more distressing and hard to bear. Sbe could  see that her father had fully set his  mind on her marrying Ralph Saybrook.  She was aware that he was a man who.  with all his kindness of heart, never  could brook being thwarted in any way  and was altogether too practical and  coarse in his nature to appreciate her  sentimental objections to the proposed  matrimonial agreement He apparently  did not consider tbat her objections  could be anything more than temporary, or that sooner or later she would  not forget Claude Roi IT and be ready  to accept Ralph ln his place with all  her accustomed cheerfulness and obedience.  At the same time, a change was go***  Ing on in the nature of the old farmer.  He had for two or three years retired  trom the more active labor ln managing his farm, and now found time every  day to spend a few hours in the village,  and was certain to make thither a regular evening trip. This spare time was  mostly spent either in the tavern or In  the company of lawyer Saybrook. The  'lawyer not only liked a social glass  himself, but was well aware of the ef  ���������feet of good spirits in promoting a  friendly and complying disposition it  those he wished to influence, and, interested as he was in securing the welfare of Ralpb with the old farmer, ha  did not fail to ply him with his best  liquors as often as he called. Moreover,  the old man took pride in supporting  the chnracter of a free-hearted burgher,  and did not escape from Ronk's tavern  of an evening without having indulged  ln more strong spirits than was good  for him.  Mrs. Bruyn and Rosa could both notice that the effect of these potations  was to increase the Irascibility and obstinacy of the head of the household  when he was crossed, while the constant brooding to become the possessor  of more lands, aad particularly of the  rich fields and heavy woods adjoining  on tbe side of the Rolff estate, became I  more and more a monomania with hlni.  The means the old farmer took to influence his daughter���������or-, rather, the attitude and disposition toward her which  were a natural result of his feelingn and  wishes���������were such as to greatly increase her distress and weaken her res  olution.  He used no harshness toward her.  His irritability showed Itself rather In  a quarrelsome and dictatorial disposition toward his farm laborers, and a  faultfinding habit about the houso  which was a source of great anxiety  to Mrs. Bruyn.  The generous-hearted girl was deeply  grieved thus to see herself the innocen/  cause of trouble to others.  Toward herself, however, hor fathei  was more than usually kind.   He treated her obstinacy in clinging to her faith  In Claude with a bluff nnd hearty ridicule, but under it his love for her shorn*  out ln a certain tenderness of look nrrd  tone that belled his curt words.  i    Rosa recognized this, and it added to  Ithe difficulty of her position.    Her na-  iture was    naturally    a seli-saerlllclris i  one.   Were her own happiness alone Involved,   she  felt   that  she  could   yield  without a murmur to anything that her  'father Wished.      But  her"  word    writ  plighted; deep Jn    her heart she    feit  convinced  of   Claude's  constancy  and  rattn; sne oould not face the reflection  of his returning one day to find that*  Bhe had been weak and false.  Thus, all the efforts of her father to  convince her of Claude's unworthlnes3  only resulted in her clinging more firmly to her faith ln him.  The old farmer was withal amused  with her display of firmness, and rather  admired her spirit. Had it not been  Tor his frequent visits to lawyer Say-  brook's office and the skill with which  that accomplished schemer played on  Iris ambition and avarice, he probably  ���������would have left Ralph to his own fate.  But the fear of seeing Rolff House go  Into, the hands of a stranger, and of.  entirely losing the lands he had coveted for so many years, spurred him on.  He sat on the front stoop one day, in  ThlB accustomed chair, smoking his pipe.  It was early autumn, and his eyes could  wander over a portion of his own land,  and down to where the woods and meadows of the Rolff place joined his own  line. Over the crest of the intervening  hill, the gables and chimneys of Rolff  House rose clear against the sky.  It was a beautiful view, and Rosa,  Who had appeared at the hall door  stood awhile passively admiring it. Indulging, no doubt, sad reflections as to  the future.  , "Come here, Rosa,", said the farmer.  |   Ehe stepped quietly to his side.  "See there," he said taking his pipe  from his mouth with one hand, while  .with the other he pointed toward Rolff  ���������House, "there lies the best bit of land  In the.whole country. The old house  there, in my day, was a grand place,  and everybody thought it a palace. It's  In bad shape now���������'twasn't in the Rolff  blood to keep: it up. Ah, it's bad blood,  erlrl, lt never could keep what it.didn't  gain honestly. That place now is Anthony Saybrook's / and he tells me he  ls going to sell it if Ralph don't get  married, but if .he does he will give it  to him. A grand place lt would bo if it  was fixed up and the: spooks driven out.  It can be yours and Ralph's, and with  It enough money to make: It as grand  as it ever was. Now, I am going over  to Mr. Saybrook's to-night; and if I tell  him ayou.are willing to marry Ralph,  he'll draw up a deed giving the whole  property to you two, arid of course wha  I've got: will be yours, and In my old  age I'd' be happy, to see my little girl  the lady of the country."  Rosa grew pale, and was silent a moment.  "The place is Claude's, father," she  said finally; "It was left to him; it  ought to be his."  "Tut, tut, girl; he gave it away for  the money to waste and riot in a foreign land. It's his no longer. I knew  he would never keep it; but I never  thought he'd be such a dunderhead as  he was about it."  "He was cheated; there is fraud  somewhere; Claude would never have  given up Rolff House," replied Rosa,  speaking low but with painful intensity.  "What's done is done, girl," said the  old man, resuming his pipe. "I saw  the paper deeding the old place away,  and It had Claude's name to it. I know  his writing well enough. He's lost it,  and lost it for good, and there isn't  much chance that he'll ever como  back here. Come, Rosa, give up your  foolishness about Claude, and take a  man that's got brains, and knows how  to make money and keep it, too. You'll  never get a better chance." _    j  ���������"Ohr-father,****-;you^do-not'kn^ww'Hatr  you ask me," replied    the poor   girl.  Mainly About People.

The old man turned and gazed after  ber as she slowly disappeared.  "Ah, poor girl," he muttered.

Ai  last, his olfactory sense rising in open  rebellion, the indignant judge shoutedr  "Usher, open the windows; open the  doors. For heaven's sake, jet out thi*,  abominable smell!" Since then M.

Give your horse grain in a lArso  eurfaeed feed box, or- use aa ircn or.o  with an irregular surface (half ball;,  molded In; he will not fill his mouth  so full, chewing his food better.  Feed your horse as near the ground  as possible; wheu eating low down  more saliva becomes mixed with tn<������  food, aiding dige-stion.  Have your stable stalls as nearly o*������  a level as possible.  Use a little lime occasionally in.  your stalls and barn yard. Lime ls ?  great purifier.  Don't speak to your horse louder,  than you would to your sweetheart,  an don't allow profanity used around-  him���������a horse with brains "don't lik������  to be talked to like a prize fighter.  Have regular hours for feeding yonti  iorse, and give him sufficient time to  cat.  Don'f strike your horse with a fora  Ifandle, or strike him over the head;/  If he needs punishing use a small  .whip���������everyday clubbing or striking  does no good. Make him respect j'ou  and the whip, and have him teas  nothing else.  Use your horse kindly, but do not  pet him���������it makes him too familiar.  Pet horses are like pet people���������na  good.  Feed your horse clean food; if yoar.  oatfi are dusty clean thenr, and don't  feed hay full of dust or dirt.  Don't tie your horse too low down  or too long, just so be can have tha  use of his head to lie down.  ChaDge your horse's feed occasionally; it will make him feel good. Give  him bran, roots, etc. (small quantities  of roots at first until accustomed to  them). How would you like to be fed  day in and day out on one kind ot  fcod?  Don't allow your horse to stand,m  manure or wet places. This is what  causes thrush, and the ammonia arising in such places affects the eyes,  etc., and coming in contact with tha  carriage and harness destroys Tar*  ���������aieh and weakens leather.  ���������Keep your horse feeling good by.  proper food and care and he will mora  than repay you for the little extra tim������  you give him.  Keep your horse well groomed, as *  .-well-kept animal not only appears better but keeps easier and feels better  (Uke a man after a bath) than onr  ���������neglected.  Keep a little salt where your horsa  can ijet it at his pleasure, not throwing it in his feed. How do you lika  your food over salted?  Keep your   horse's mane   and tall-  ���������well cleaned and wash  h:a tail    and*  dock occasionally in a pail of water.

Ellis got so HeCould not Walk  Alone or Feed Himself���������He Tells  of His Cure.  Cedar Dale, Ont., Aug. 2*1.���������(Special).���������Every day seems to furnish  fresh proofs that Dodd's Kidney Pills  are the one sure and permanent cure  for rheumatism. This village furnishes evidence that no one can doubt  in the person of W. E. Ellis. His  story is best given In his own words:  "Two years ago," says Mr. Ellis,  "I gob Muscular Rheumatism. I tried  all sorts of medicines, but none ot  them did me any good.  "At last my wife would send for a  doctor. When he arrived I said 'Doctor, can you cure Muscular Rheumatism?' 'No," said the doetor. 'Then,'  I said, 'you arc of no use to me.' "  ''I got so bad I could not feedmy-  self or walk alone. Then I was induced to try Dodd's Kidney Pills. I tool-  six boxes of them, which drove all  the Rheumatism out of me and left  me in good health again."  Dodd's Kidney Pills cure Rheumatism by removing the cause���������by putting the Kidneys in shape to take ih*  uric acid out of the blood. They always cure Lumbago and Sciatica Ja  ihe same way..  flutter-fat percentage is not increased or decreased by this, that or the  other feed. The percentage seerce to  be as much a fixed thin? as is the  ���������number of legs, or ears, or eyes, on  bones in the cow's body. Dairymen  may safely recognize this truth -audi  act upon it with confidence in the  making up of rations for their cows.  In building up a dairy herd the  ���������dairyman must work on the individual  cow with feeds and tests. Pedigree  .will not insure milk-flow or butter-  fat Blood will not insure vigor. Kvery blooded and pedigreed cow should  be tested just as thoroughly as tha  grade cow or the promising scrub.  The cheap cows of the great strain*-*  are generally not valuable dairy cows,"  for they are generally cheap because  they lack the chief characteristics ot  '-'their^etralnpthe^quannty^affd'quaiuy"'  of milk, the ease of keeping, the good  make-up in general. The observant  dairyman will find some so-called  Jersey or Holstein-Frlesian or Ayrshire or other herds that are very Inferior herds in every essential, beciusa  made up of the cheapest and poorest  cows tbat are entitled tb bear one ot  another of the great strain names.  If the dairyman buys blood or strata  at all he should buy at least respectable animals of the selected variety.  Milk will vary ln color as well af  flavor with varied feeds.  Butter fat is a compound of ten oa  more separate substances, all of which'  are oily, and this may be the reason  .why no single oily substance fed to a  cow will perceptibly increase her percentage of butter-fat.���������New Yorj-*  Farmer.
