A\Tith that tendency to forrl their  own r.est that the Opposition press  delights irr an al.tcmpt lias been made  by various newspapers, particnlnrly  the " Vancouver ��������� World," to denounce  the timher laws in ,foi-ee iir .'British  Columbia.   This irresponsible scandal  _inongeringJiiis_discouraged  capital to  a curtain extent" but "investors   whir  .lmvc. invcslifj-ated- the matter have  arrived at a far different conclusion.  It i.s refreshing, therefore, to have the  opinion of Mr. C. McCormick, AI. P.,  one of the heaviest shareholders in  the Pacific Coast Lumber' Company  and also largely 'associated with Lire  Arrowhead Lumber Company'that is 1  about to build a very large mill at"  that point. In a recent interview  with the "News Advertiser," Mr.  McCormick speaks very favorably of  the laws at present in force and considers them the best in the world  burring the United States.   To quote*:  ���������������������������" "Speaking of* the  JJ. C. TIMHER LAWS,  Mr. McCoriniek remarked tlmi. contrary to. local opinion he regarded tho  laws.regulating-timber lands "in this  Province ns the best in the world,  barring United States.     As .far ashe  | Mci4qjJiiiroIc ''ephed that the action   of  the Government was  Wlil.L ADVISED.  and in thc best interests of (he  country. It should be the aim of tlie  authorities to aid irr bniiding rrp the  industries and labor-employing institutions of tho country. To allow  tho raw products to be exported lur  manufacture'1 .'.'abroad, when the  rnnrrufacturer could be forced to come  to Ihe scene of ".production, and  establish his work., was similar to  killing the goose that was laying the  golden eggs. It was uf far greater  importance to a country to secure the  establishment of large labor-employing mills iu its midst arid thus ensure  the retention of the profits and  business of both the logging and mill  industries, than,'for temporary laments, to allow the produce of the  eon n tr,v~lobu-shipper! "abriTinl- in- ies"  raw state to build up manufacloricH in  other lands. The proposed change  would also encourage' the labor' ol"  such countries lo como to our Province, for certain portions of the year  only, for the purpose of earning good  money with which to retiun to tlieir  owii country to spend during the  slack 'sear.on.. The placing of the  'embargo upon the-export of logs irr  Onlario had benefited that Province  to a wonderful extent'.' Irr liig Inlet,  for' instance, the 'population of. some  12,000 people had dwindled down to  about 8,000 in 1SD7-S, owing to the lack  of protection for the lumbering industry. Aftor the placing of tbe  embargo orr the export of logs in J SOS,  tlic-population again increased, and  in a, vear or two reached its former  strength of sorrre 10,000 or *. 12.000  people. He had been one of the lirst  idvocates    of  had been able to look into them, the, public advocates of the embargo,  British Columbia laws enabled a man having -commenced its agitation in  of small capital to secure timber limits 1SS7, mul revived it again in 1S90 and  by merely staking out and  recording   1SIH."  them. He could establish'*(in._ni.ll mill I Hus expression of ..opinion from a  nnd commence business on a p'r.tcti- : heavy investor is worth more than all  cally insignificant capital.

The law there was framed in  the interests of the capitalists, aird  consequently a few men controlled  the business. The .British Columbia  law was framed in the interests of the  nrin.ll man. As regards tire, complaint*;  heard against the riontriinsferrable  licorice law, they did riot exist in  reality.

Seven Miles From Trout Lake  Another Poplar Creek Discovered���������Discoverys Point to  Big Bend.  Between the discovery at Ground  Hog Basin, mentioned irr onr last  issue, and the widly circulated Iind at>  Poplar Creek the splendid mineral  zone has been located and staked with ���������  in seven miles of Trout Lake. And  this strike is'equal" to, if not better  than. Poplar creek, of the same kind  and with similar banging walls. The  latest showing should overshadow the  Poplar'outfit. AVe . say this for* two  reasons, firstly, because the Poplar  creek find was bruited abroad by  novices while tire other1 was ther work  of practical men. aird secondly because  the latest excitement has allraclei  prospectors of approved ability while  the other- was simply a rush of "ehe  cliacos" to a place where they thought  gold was sticking up in chunks.  * The first news that' came to the  Hi.KAr.iT of tlie 'recent find was convoyed iir a .wire from'Trout Lake on  Sunday afternoon which road:  'Another Poplar1 creek discovered,  everyone excited, .'many will leave  when proved."  This despatch created considerable  interest in our office, but wo decried  not to be a viclin. of a stampede until  something tangible was apparent.  But we were too late and now proceed  to tell the story of the find as given  from reliable resources.  About Friday last .Mr. AVm. Davie  went out to do assessment work on  one or two claims about seven miles  north of Trout Lake. Irr the course  of his work he found that,' in addition  to the veins formerly located, several  new outeroppings of quartz appeared  which looked-like, rich ore. One of  tho_<. was therefore turned over and  it was then found that the gold which,  owing to surface concentration, was  not apparent among the largo spheres  of iron capping, was clearly seen with  tbe naked eye a foot or so below the  surface. The news was quickly  circulated by -Air. Davie and, on  Saturday last, several claims were  si,need. AVhen the news came to  Trout Lake the excileiiient started.  The* samples; brought., do wh. made, the  population p'racliciiliy "Avild. "��������� In 'the  twinkling of an " eye business was suspended, men arrd women rushed lrp  the trail iir lire-wild search for gold  and, at the moment of writing, probably two or three hundred are on the  giound wording.wilh pick and shovel,  pan ���������and rocker, taking out for themselves gold from the auriferoi s  Lardeau.  This Ih id has been verified Iiy many  local residents. Deputy Sheriff Knapp,  who came in from Trout Lake leaving  there Sunday morning, says that  from 11 p. nr., until the time of his  leaving, lhi. mad rush for claims continued. Tho trail was a moving mass  of humanity all heading towards the  recently found FI Dorado and the  town of Trout Lake is descried.  A press despatch fronr Beaton says:  "Thc scene of the discovery is about,  three iniles- east bf the lake, in the  direction of Ferguson, where the  Nettie L., Silver- Cup and other- rich  urines aro situated. 'the fact that it.  is iir direct line with the phenomenal  deposits which : have been struck on  Poplar* creek irr the south rind Fish  river in thenorth. indicates that the  free rich gold belt of the Lartleau is  from twenty to thirty miles long."  .Without further absolule news the  HioitAl.l) does not advise its readers fo  seek the new locality. It is probable  that by now all locations in the  _viciiijty-Ju..v.c_-. been.- Ink oii^ii(*t.__Jl__n_.j  new I'mil, however', demonstrates the  fact that a continuity of rock, formative exists through the .'large stretch  of country between the Lardeau and  the Big Bend. ..Wo have insisted orr  this orr several occasions, not only by  personal observation but also through  specimens ol'rock' from the ' various  locations tnudc. There should be no  particular rush to the Iind in the  vicinity of Trout Lake, but practical  men should investigate tho country  between the places much lioomed  recenlly and locate for themselves  claims of equal valiio of those a I.

There are times when we who have  . ived constantly in thc valleys become  tissatisfied with our surroundings, with  .  he commonplace scenery, the narrow  -lorizon  and  contracted    vision,    and  bok  with  envious  eyes to    the    few  "who have succeeded in climbing to tht  Mountain top.   Then, under some sud-  ��������� ���������������������������������������������������. spell, we summon up courage, gath-  rr our feeble strength and attempt to  /Utinb the  steep  and  rugged    ascent.  .���������'-And when at last, after many trials and  -failures, we reach the summit wc arc  lully rewarded for our exertions by the  ;rlorious sight before us and by the cx-  --.ilara.ion of thc upper air.  Those in the valley can see only a  -���������jmall  part  of  the  world's  wonders���������  ���������>kere a field, a garden, there a cavern,  ������ river or lake.    Upon the mountain  "jop the sublime and awe-inspiring pros-  ~|*ect of the world's wonderful design,  .-.eairty, majesty and power bursts full  -tpon  the  eye.    From below  we  saw  - ������nly a few peaks; from above    hun-  '���������Ireds of peaks  come into view,  hundreds of smaller mountains, separated  ky undulations of green forests or by  lilver threads of limpid waters.    From  .elow we !:*\d a limited outlook, s;i\v  ���������snly our own confined surroundings���������  i  few peasants, villagers or conceit-.d  townspeople ; beheld only petty affairs  trf mundane life, which seemed of such  firamount importance to the denizens  if the valley.    From  the  heights  we  lave, comparatively speaking,    an    al-  -nost unlimited horizon and can see at  'i glance many cities and villages, and  31  the  distance hills and valleys,  riv-  :rs and lakes, and beyond the mighty  -.cean  embracing all    things.      From  ibove all great cities seem but as toy  7illages, men and women as tiny mini-  itures and our seemingly vast enter.  -prises as the block houses of children  ' it play.    Standing there on the moiin-  ���������tain top, in thc very presence of the  Lord, as'v it were, upon the throne of  creation, we seem to realize a sense of  tur greater .elves and our larger pos-  iibrlities,  and  to  feel that the people  ������nd the things wc have left below are  ������ut the chrysalis from which we have  ���������.scaped; that the world in the valley  ��������� Ss but the stepping stone to the high-  sr world above.  ��������� -There are luminous hours in our  IveS when the soul yearns to emancipate itself  irom the limitations under  ��������� fhich it was born and has continued  ���������^V.   exist,  and  seeks  to  rise  to  sonic  ���������jigher estate of manhood or woman-  sood.    Wc  have  at  times visions  of  *icn  and  women  who  have  risen to  -Ipiritual  heights   which   we   aspire   to  leach.   They seem to live on the mountain tops  of Hie  arid enjoy a great..-.:  'md broader  view  of human    affairs.  They are men oi unusual wisdom, profound reason, of uncompromising convictions; men who stand on the yant-  igc ground oi truth, who love right-  ���������ousness.  execute justice    and    walk  -sumbly before their God; broad-gauge  ���������nen, full of sympathy and love for humanity; who'.e-.ouled men and women  ���������vho can sniile-.bcnignly.and speak ijrac-  ���������onsly, yet wisely; philanthropists, lov-  its of mankind,  who    temper    jus^'-.  urith mercy, judgment with charity, and  -rho, like Divinity, are   patient,    long  -joffering and abundant in kindness and  iercy.  In our better moments we seek to  rtand  upon  such a  lofty plane.    Our  trrdinarv    lives    seem     commonplace,  "'���������stale, flat and unprofitable."   We go  constantly through the same routine of  ���������jatrng and drinking, sleeping and w_l:-  *ng.

We wish to be not the  5-rby that i* m<>ulded,but the potter who  -fesign*. arid executes the plan.    In our  ictter  !iou-s  we reach out to such an  'Heal life that is   far    above   our   material, woriuiy existence, with its con-  jfent round of toil and care, coupled  With only a modicum of pleasure.  It is such an ideal that reconciles s  *to the most bitter disappointments. It  a lhe buoy that keeps us afloat in the  tempestuous sea of life until some un-  jnpectcd help comes to our rescue. The  -fean  without  an  ideal  is lost in  this  Srdid, sclf'sh and cold-hearted world,  e is subject to despondency, de-  (���������pair and a broken spirit that often  allows bitter disappointment, and to  ���������be loss of health, happiness and for-  ���������enc as a result of the deceit and in-  .jratitude of selfish and treacherous  fiends.  At such a time the words "Go forth  lad stand on the r-ountain top be-  'pre the Lord" appeal to us with a  rronderful fon_e. Get thee out of tbe  Bough of despair, out of the vall.y  ���������There dwell the narrow and tlie evil  ninded, and stand on the heights of  (he ideal life, with the great and thc  food, before the T.or*d. This ideal for-  jfies the soul, brushes aside the brood-  ng care, drives away thc lowering  ilouds and sends a ray of sunshine  iio our dark gorrorindings.    We be  gin to feel that what we have lost is  not all of life: there are still health,  aappiness and fortune in store for us;  :hat the sea is never drained; tliat new  iriends can be made in place of the  ola; that all truth and justice, all appreciation and sympathy are not dc-  itroycd; that new love can grow even  Irom the grave of a dead ailf._tion.  The ideal gives new zest to life, a, new  nalo to our surroundings. It spells  lew opportunity and undying hope.  For the Queen's Nurses.

Few people study into the reasons  'or doing a thing, and instead of doing  ihcir work according to reason many  lo it according to "grandfather's rule,"  handed down from bygone days. When  the soil was new, full of humus and  >lant food, and was light and loose, thc  roots could get through it to great  .cngths easily, and if cut off by a care-  ess cultivator could get plenty of food  'n the circumscribed area; but now our  toils have been robbed of all material  which holds them up and keeps them  mellow, and are sadly deficient in  lvailablc plant food, so that a larger  irea is required to grow thc plant, and  in injury to the roots causes a failure  of food and a lessening of the yield.  The ploughing between the rows and  extensive hilling once in fashion is not  the best method for the piesent time,  and certainly is not thc cheapest. It is  laid that when the potatoes were  Drought back to their native home from  Ireland the practice of hilling was  brought with them. I know of no other  reason for it. In that country they  made hills, to get them up out of the  too moist soil; here we need more  moisture as a rule. The roots are the  means by whicli food is obtained; to  cut off roots is to cut off food supply.  The roots as they become old and  tough lose the power to take in food,  and the process is continued further  out where they are smaller. The older  the plant the further from the base is  the food obtained. The growth and  length of the roots are very great.  When the foliage is not more than  :en inches high the roots are eighteen  inches long; later tliey are from three  to five feet. Should one wash away  :he dirt carefully and get all the roots  without breaking them, they would  make a rope larger than a braid of a  woman's hair. It is safe to say that by  midsummer there is not an inch of soil  in a potato field that is not filled with  the roots. No deep cultivation can be  given at this time without injury. Once  I grew 150 bushels,an acre without any  cultivating at all. Potatoes grow in  spite of, not because of, cultivation.  We cultivate to keep down weeds, to  break up the crust and preserve the  water supply, not to make potatoes  grow. If you do not believe it, plant  some and cover with straw, and sec.  The method which will do all of these  things best, quickest and cheapest,  without injuring the root growth/ is  the one we want and are seeking.  The previous preparation has much  to do with the methods we can use. and  the after treatment should always be  kept' in mind when planting anv crop.  Potatoes that arc planted shallow must  be hilled up some or they will be sunburned ; hence, level culture requires deeper planting. The new-  tubers are always attached  :o thc stalk, and are always above the  seed piece planted. Therefore, a shallow-planted potato must be covered  by hilling to keep thc new tubers cov-  sred. This hilling not only cuts off  die roots, but gives the sun a chance  :o dry out the sides of the hills and  decrease the yield.  Where the mark was shallow and the  soil  was   not  very  mellow,   I    would  .lough  deep   between   the   rows   with  1 one-horse plough or cultivator witli  .���������ery sharp  teeth  the  minute  the potatoes  begin  to  come   up   and  before  I the roots arc long.    I would turn die  ! iirt   onto   them   and   completely   cov-  jr the just protruding top.    This will  imother small weeds, cover them deep-  :r   and   loosen   the   soil   between   the  rows   all  at one operation;   but    the  weeder across the rows should follow  it once,  to  level  and   loosen  the  dirt  j *hat  is   on   the plants.     If you  have  i 10  weeder  use  a harrow  with   "pig"  teeth.  !    The  roots  arc  the  canals   and   thc  ! water   the    agent    which carries    thc  food through them to the foliage.

Relics of Ancient London.  According to London papers, recently  to hand, the workmen employed in tho  acmolltions on the slto ot the new Sessions House In the Old Bailey have un-  _arth������d a portion of the old Roman wall  immediately behind tho "Dead-man's  Walk," the burinl-ptace for executed  malefactors. A substantial ploco ot tho  old -vail was known to exist at tho back  of Newgate, and thoro la a special clause  In the contract for tho present works  there providing for tho careful preservation of the relic. The old wall formerly ran almost parallel with the Old  1-alif.y.

The  wall was built about 30!i A.D. by tho Km-  peror Constantino, to keep out tho hordes  of Plots and Scots, at which tlmo, north  of tho wall, was a huge forest, tract in-  rested with wild hoirs.

After thc first deep,  thorough work, twice in a row, the  teeth should not go deeper than two  inches again at any time.  Where (Jthe tubers arc covered four  nches deep, as they should be, they  ihould be narrowed with a smoothing  _arrow, or a spring tooth with teeth  ;ct shallow, twice before they come  ip. This will not tear them out; do  fot be afraid of it. Let the team  Maik between the rows and not step  on the hills.

Work over the potatoes often  :nough to keep any crust from forming, to keep sprouting weeds killed,  md raise a dust to drive away flea  beetles.  Unless compelled by the manner of  planting, do not hill up at ajf. The  workings will work up a little soil,  nnd there will be a rounded surface  toward the plant, but no deep trenches. By this method of rrsing thc team  harrows and weeder the cost of cultivating should be only a few dollars  an acre; for a boy. who costs 50 cents,  and the team will harrow ten or twelve  acres a day, and tlo it better than any  man and cultivator.  Thc great trouble with all ordinary  cultivation is that the weeds in thc  hill and the crust 011 it arc not broken  and both cause a loss, that the cost  is too great and too much lime is taken. To grow potatoes at from 10  to 20 cents a bushel we must adopt  improved methods.���������G. E. Chapman,  in N. Y. "Tribune  l-'anner."  *We have yet to get many of tho details of what the Discovery has achieved  in the Antarctic for exploration and science, says The London Chronicle. More-  3ver,  when tho  relief ship Morning left  nor, bringing news to New Zealand, she  had only half done her work. We know  enough, however, to bo ablo to say that  the present  British Antarctic expedition  will rank as one of the most notable ln  :he history of polar travel and research.  Captain  Scott and  his  comrades  of tho  Brrcat  sledge journey  got  nearer  to  tho  ���������outh   polo  by  two   hundred   miles  than  anybody has been before.    Thoy readied  i'2 dcg. 17 8., and it is nut Impossible tliat  during their second year's stay In these  regions   thoy   may   voimivo   to   surpass  this record.    Then  laird  has boon  found  at tho extremity ot tlio Ico barrier, and  It   hrrs   been   made   clear   that   Mounts  ISrebus and Terror form part  of an  Island  set  ln   a strait,   and   not,   ns  onco  had been  thought,  part of a solid Antarctic continent.    Altogether, a vory remarkable ndiilllou  is  likely  to  be  made  to our knowledge of tlie Antarctie,  nnd  30 to our full understanding of tho globe,  when tlio Discovery cornea back from tho  wilderness of Ice which lias closed around  her.    Hor equipment  for  her mission  is  In singular contrast for Its completeness  to  that   of  the  craft  which   first  sailed  to   the   far   south.     Chronicles   of  them  go back to  the early part of the  eighteenth  century,   arrd  suggest  tho  names  of  Goorgo   Shelvoke  and  Lozler  Bouvet  of   Crozot,   James   Cook   and   Kurneaux.  Tlio nineteenth century brings us to Bel-  llnghausen,    the    Russian,     to    Charles  Wilkes,    the   American,   and in particular to the expedition, In tlie years l_il_-.ll,  of Sir James Ross.    Iio discovered Victoria   Land,   christened   Mounts   Erebus  and   Terror   after   his   own   ships,   and  reached as far towards the south polo as  78 deg. 10.   In 1S74 Sir George Nares, with  the   Challenger,   lirst   crossed   the   Antarctic Circle by steam,and In recent years  there have  beerr   the  expeditions  of  the  Belglea and  of the Southern  Cross,   tho  latter fitted out by Sir George Nownes,  and  commanded   by   Mr.   C.   B.   Borch-  grevink,   who   penetrated   to   78   deg.   BO  south.   With thc coming of tho twentieth  century   there   also   came   a   revival   of  Antarctic exploration, on what may fairly be  called  tho  grand   scale.    Scottish,  German and Swedish expeditions are all  at   present   probing   the   secrets   of   the  far south,  and all  ln such   a  way  that  they work ln with the larger undertaking  organized   by   the   Royal    Geographical  Society.    The  Discovery  took  the   route  of   the   Ross  Sea,   while  the  Scotia  approached the polar Ice from the direction  of   the  Falkland   Islands.    The   Swedish  vessel   Antarctic   went   by   Capo   Horn  and Graham Land, and the German ship  Gauss, by   Kcrguelcn.     "The   main   objects." said Sir Clements Markham,  discussing Antarctic exploration before the  Discovery sailed  from  England,   "are to  determine as far as possible the extent  and nature of the south polar land,��������� to  ascertain the nature of its glaclation and  the condition of tho Ice-cap,  to observe  the   character   of   the   underlying   rocks  and to make a magnetic survey south of  ���������10 deg., S.    Much importance Is also attached to the meteorological observations,  and especially to meteorological observations south  of 7*1  deg.    Deep-sea soundings,  with  temperatures,  aro also to  be  taken,   and   biological   observations   nre  to be made." Here was work enough for  the Discovery.   She sailed from England  In July, 1901, for New Zealand. At Lyttle-  ton   Captain   Seott   mnde   his   final   preparations   and   then   steamed* south   into  the   icy   unknown.    During  the  ensiling  Antarctic summer she visited Cape Adaro,  Wood Bay, and Cupe. Crosier, and made  a. far-reaching cruise eastward along the  ice  barrier.  The   coast  was   followed  to  latitude 76 deg., longitude 152 deg. 30 min.,  or  about 150  miles  beyond   the   furthest  point  previously  reached   in   this   direction.    The land discovered In the extremity of the Ico barrier was extensive and  rugged, peaks and mountains rising from  It Into the clear Antarctie sky. Returning  westward, the Discovery eventually found  excellent   winter   quarters���������sho  was  Btlll  frozen In when the Morning left���������ln tho  vicinity   of   Mount   Erohus.   whero   Mc-  Murdo   Bay   Is   Indicated    on   the  map.  "Here," Sir Clements Markham had said,  speaking In anticipation,  "thero Is probably   a   better   climate   than    at   Capo  Ad.ire,   because   It   is within   the   anti-  cyclonic region," It; has now been ascertained   that   McMurdo   Bay   Is   really   a  strait,   and   valuable   observations   have  been   made   as   to   the   volcanic   Mounts  Erebus   and   Terror.     Only   smoke,   not  lire,   seems   to   hnve   been   seen   Issuing  trom   them,   and   by  it  the  officers  and  erew   of   the   Discovery   could   tell   tho  direction   of   the   wind.     A   trying   but  valuable sledge expedition was mado to  trcunt Terror by a party under Lieutenant  Royds.    The   log-books of  lhe Discovery  also record a fine piece of work by Lieutenants Armitnge and Skelton. who wero  away   twenty-one     days   exploring     the  western   range   of  Antarctic   mountains.  Greatest of all In this ico travelling was,  of course, the Journey southward "of Captain   Scott's   own   party.     If   they. got  nearer   by  2K   miles���������that   seems   to   be  as  exact a calculation  as can   bo  mado  at   the  moment���������to  the   south  pole  than  anybody has been before, they assuredly  did it by heroic toll and endurance. Exposure almost cost one of them his life,  and as their  dogs died   they had  themselves  to drag the  slndges back to tha  Discovery.    Her people will have adventures enough  to  tell  ns well  as a  mine  of  information   to   give   tho   world.    Wo  shall have the evidence which points to  the Ice barrier being afloat, though connected with  the land Ice.  Again, a Victoria Land traversed by ranges of high  mountains will mean new marks on  tho  soutb   polar   map.

British Trade for 1902.  The annual statement of British trade  for the year 1902 shows that aa far as  imports aro concerned the highest figures over reached are recorded���������������5_8,3S_,-  274. Tho nearest approach to this was  ln 1000, when tho Imports amounted to  ������523,075,1110. On tho other hand, exports  for l-0_ only come to ������.*19,__8,779. In 1900  they totalled over ������5,000.000 more. Tho  difference between Imports and exports  ls thereforo ������179,152,-195, and has not been  so great at any period of tho country's  commercial existence. Many ot tho ltoma  of trudo have an Interest of their own.  ln 1902 we bought motor cars to the value  of ������992,229, nnd exported them to tho extent of ������156,3*10.

Aliens in Britain.  The President of the Local Government  Board has furnished Sir Howard Vincent,  M.P.. with the result of tho Inquiries he  has made concerning the destitute aliens  relieved from the British poor rate In  England and Wales during the year 1902.  The result Is not less remarkable than  that . bourn by Mr. Akf-rs-Douglas' recent  census of th*. foreigners in his MoJ-itys  prisons. That sho-ved* a total ot nearly  .even hundred criminal aliens, maintained by tho British taxpayer at a* cost  estimated at ������i������.000 a your, apart from  th������*lr depredations and tho expanse of  law and police. Four thousand six hundred and eighteen destitute aliens were  granted poor-law rellof laBt year. Of  these, 1,9_9 were admitted as Indoor cases,  whilo 2J7 were sent to lunatic or Imbocllo  asylums. London accounts in tho total  for 3,234 destitute aliens, of whom 1,210  were indoor and 105 lunatics, or idiots.  The provlncfls afforded relief to J.SM destitute aliens and 120 alien vagrants, nna  tt������nt 65 to lunatic asylums.

Mr. J. V. Densal, writing from on board  tho steamship Oceana, off Port Said, has  kindly sent us a translation of the inscription and an explanation of the do-  sign.   He says :���������  "The top lino means tlie State of Bundl.

After riding  for sixteen   years on  the  only desirable seat Inside a prison van-  that of the conductor,  says Tho London  Daily Mail,  Sergeant Delaspee  has Just  retired    from    tho    Metropolitan    police  foreo, leaving behind him at Marlborough  Streot Police Station  a small  black cat  that has  sat upon   the  step  of  his  van  every afternoon for nearly the wholo of  that period.   Among tho criminals of the  west end Sergeant Uelaspeo and the small  black cat have come  to  be  regarded as  Inseparable   friends.   Not   long   ago   thc  sergeant was ushering one of Ids passengers Into  tlio  varr,  arrd   the  man   espied  pussy standing by.    "Wiry, guv'nor,  you  had that cat when I had ti ride ten years  ago," said the prisoner, who seemed quite  cheered  by  the recollection.    During liis  sixteen   years   as   conductor   of   "Black  Maria"   the   sergeant   has   driven   about  ono    hundred    thousand    miles    between  Marlborough Street, Marylobone and Bow  Slroet Police Stations and Pentonvillo and  Holloway Prisons, and has conducted 3U0.-  000 men and women of every, rank In'life.  A baby  was  born   during  one    Journey.  Onco   ho  provided  an   impromptu   entertainment for Queen Victoria,   in his van  were nineteen West End llower girls, sent  to  prison  in  default  of paying lines   for  obstructing the streets.   In Oxford street  the  van   had   to* wait   while   the   Queen  drove by,   and tho nineteen girls whlled  away  the time   by  singing.    The  crowd  laughed   and   cheered,    and    tlie   Queen  must  have  been  much  surprised  at  the  cheerful   strains     proceeding    from   the  black  "musical   box,"  as    the    sergeant  named It.    Although    ho    has  travelled  with so many thousand prisoners, including quite a score of murderers or alleged  murderers,   Sergeant  Delaspoe   has   only  onco been attackd,. and  that by a man  who was half mad.   No prisoner.has ever  tried to  escape  from  hlrn,    and    he  attributes his Immunity from trouble to the  sympathetic attitude he invariably adopted   towards  his  charges..   One, night   ho  travelled with twenty men, everyone of  whom   was   cliargod* with   some   act   of  violence.   He "boxed" sixteen of them in  the tiny compartments, and  had to ride  with the other-four uv the central pas-  sago.   Two of the four were charged with  murder, but there was no disagreeable incident on the ride, although a dense fog  rendered the. Journey much longer tnan  usual.    Peers.of the realm  havo  ridden  In the van.   After a well-known raid on a  west end club three members of the nobility rode In the seclusion of "Black Maria"  rather  than  ride with  police officers   ln  hansom  cabs.    Of  the  murderers whom  Mr. Delaspee escorted the most notorious  were the German  Muller,  who  killed   a  man by baking him  in  a baker's  oven,  and Mrs.  Pearcey,  who  killed   the wife  and child of a former sweetheart.   Even  ln the seclusion of the prison van  Mrs.  Pearcey protested her Innocence, and she  seemed fully to expect to be released. Another murderer on his way to trial gleefully promised to go round in the evening  and see   Sergeant Delaspee and  present  him   with    he bost cigar in  London  for  his kindness.   In the evening he returned,  sentenced to death.  A Valuable Picture Refused.  There has Just come to light In Bristol, England, an Interesting romanco of  a picture.

In connection with African railway undertakings. It is interesting to read an official statement Issued by Sccrotary Jones  of the British South Africa Company,  who recently visited Bhodesia. Mr. Jones,  eays Public Opinion, speaks with special  gratification of tho "inexhaustible supply  of coal" which the advent of the railway  to the Wankie coal fields will soon throw  open. He estimates the initial output of  the Wankie colliery at 300 tons daily, and  declares that, with the exception of tho  best Welsh coal, there is no better steam  coal ln the world than the product of  Wankie. With the- gold-mining Industry  of Rhodesia we are more or less familiar, but It is not so well known that copper, zinc and other mineral deposits  abound ln that region. Mr. Jones further states that the prospects of agriculture are exceedingly hopeful, and that  facllltles^noWi exlst-for-thoiemployinent or  modern farm machinery.  Prooeedlng to Uganda, one finds that  the railway there ls practically finished.  AU the steel viaducts for the road have  been completed, and there only remains  the substitution of steel structures for a,  few small and unimportant temporary  bridges. Trading vessels are being placed  on Victoria Kyanza. At present thero is  a through train twice weekly I'n eadh direction between Mombaua and Fort Florence. -  In Ethiopia and the Soudan the work  ef development nnd exploitation is progressing apace. The treaty recently concluded betweon King Monelik and the  British Government probably moans the  early construction of tho Berber-Sunkin  railroad "via Kassala (costing seme $16,-  300,000), and tho subsequent extension of  tho Kassala line southward to Lake Rudolph, where eventually It will form a  function with the Uganda Railway, at  the same time marking a long step toward the realization of the Cape-to-Calro  scheme. A few days ago tlie DJibouli-  Marrar Railway was opened; thus  Ethiopia ls to be exploited from the east.  It is, however, not unlikely il-.it a larae  part of tlie future trade of I his virgin  kingdom will be drawn towards Khartoum. English nnd American oapltalists  recently despatched a corps of engineers  lo survey a railway from Khartoum fo  Mills Abcba, and In June an expedition  will stjir-t for Abyssinia to descend Hie.  Blue Nile, In order to test its value as a  commercial waterway, in view of diverting a portion of the traffic passing via  Djibouti.  The general Impression as to-the natural resources of Rthlonia arrd tlie Soudan Is that they nre rich, but undeveloped. Willi particular reference totlie Soudan, The Egyptian Gazette wiys editorially :���������"On the whole, although the Soudan will take several more years to develop, there are praetienlly no ' limits to  the possibilities for outside capital which  the recovered provinces afford. " With  great tracts of fertile soil now producing  ilttlo but Jungle, and with a water supply only needing scientific storage aud  distribution to fulfil all requirements,  there is no reason why the Soudan should  not become one of the world's greatest  exnnnrles.

JNnrirm was so grateful, so deeply  touched by these words and the tone irr  irhicli they were uttered, that it was  villi dilllcully she kept hack the tears.  Lady Myfanwy answered him at once,  rather impatiently.  "If thoro were any serious idea of con*  lecling you with this dreadful thing,"  die said, "it would be dilferent. Hut  shere isn't. We all krrow you to be iu-  ���������apable of anything but the most liouor-  ible and chivalrous conduct.

"I've already  Heard a good mal'ry things said about me,  by people who didn't know who I was,  K'hich were rrot, pleasant hearing for any  nan.

"Come," Ire said, "you will be able to  talk more freely to rrie than you dare do  fcere.    Lady Myfanwy and Lady Violet  will excuse us "both, I'm sure.

"You promised, you know I"  "Even a promise is subject to revision  In a case of emergency," he said, courteously, but rather coolly; "I'm very  frateful for your kindness to me, Lady  fyfanwy, but I must show some regard  to  the wishes of my wifo."  When Ihey were "outside in the dark  ���������and the eold again, Norma's spirits fell  ���������till lower than before. The belief that  ���������she was losing whatever hold she had  opon Aslley, arrd that Lady Myfanwy  had succeeded in supplanting her in Iris  regard, weighed trporr her like lead. At  the same time she tried to bear up under  this new blow, arrd told herself that,  since happiness with herself was out of  *lro question, she ought to bo glad that  she had found, in the carl's daughter, a  powerful friend. These feelings and  thoughts made her silent, and it was  Astley who spoke first. Following her  down the drive, after he had been de- -  tained a few moments by the imperious  Lady Myfanwy, he drew her reluctant  hand through his arm and snid:  "My dear, you look unhappy, horribly  unhappy I What is.il?

"I know, oh, I know that I'm nothing  to you now, that it sccrri3 impossible lo  hope that we can ever be happy, and���������  and I know I don't deserve to be!" she  almost sobbed, "liut���������oh, to find you  there, with that woman leaning over  yea, and talking to you in that charming, caressing way she has with the peo-  pte she likes���������oh, don't you see how hard  it seemed? When I'd thought you were  miles and miles away!"  "The reason why I wns not miles away  was that there was .111 attraction that  drew me back here," said Astley gently,  keeping her hand tucked under, his arm.  "I came back only this afternoon���������a flying visit to hear whether thc police had  found out anything, and to learn how  you were. I had scarcely got out of the  station when some of the Hall people  drove up, and insisted on my going back  with them instead of going to an hotel,  as I had intended to do. There! Are  you satisfied now?"  Norma drew a shivering sigh.  "Satisfied! No," said she. "It would  tako more than that to make nre feel  anything so floute as satisfaction. I shall  feel that When*���������when you are perfectly  happy, no matter what becomes of mel"  "Would you be satisfied to see me happy with Lady Myfanwy?" he asked playfully.  But ths shiver which passed through  her made 'him grave again. She, however,  tried to smile, as she said gently: "Yes,  yes. If you could be. happy with her,  then I should bo content. Kcally, really."  "Well, I could not," said Astley decidedly. "There's only one woman who  could make mc happy, nnd that's th*  wife who slwll be my wife yet In the  "eyes of all the world!"  And he pressed upon Irer lips a comforting kiss of love and tenderness,  which, sll .unreasonable as it was, gave  her a little fresh hope, fresh courage.  And whon ho left her at the end of th*  lane, by, her own wish, that they might  ��������� irbt   scf   the   eol lagers   chattering,   sire  '  walked with a lighter step and 11 lighter  heart llnrri when she went forth that af-  I  ternoon on her errand of discovery.  I      In the darkness, when she came to the  ��������� first cottage, she raw Nance flagged in  her doorway. AfU-r a moment's hesitation, Norma slopped U* :,-k her' how Ned  waB. She fancied f.onr tin* woman'.-,  rrrarrrrcr that she was ruu-asy about something.  I    "It's   about   hiin   I'm   worriting,"   .111-  ; ewered Nance civilly enough.    "The lad  ��������� eoorrr home this afternoon, arrd he's been  greeting about t' cold, and I'm rrigh sure  he's downright ill. ilny bo he's caught  cold wearing these fine new claes of t'  doctor's."  I     "I thought he was ill when I met him  1 In the wood this afternoon," said Norma.  ,     "Ay, so he is too, and rne wi* nobody  1 to go and fetch V doctor."  ;     Norma said  eagerly:  "Let  rue  watch  him while you go."  j     "Oh, I doan't like for. to trouble your  ladyship," said Nance, looking, however,  ; as if she felt rather grateful,  i     But Norma persisted in hev oiTer, and  , Nance,   apologetically   saying   she   had  tried to get someone from the'neighboring cottages, but they were nil out marketing for the next day, which was Sunday, at length availed herself of the of-  ' fer,  and  ran  in   to  put on  Irer shawl,  1 while Norma went back to her own lodging to leave her mull' antl gloves. '  ,     At tho door  of Nance's cottage they  '. Darted,  Niurcu    speeding    away   to   the  town, with her basket on her a 1111, after  ��������� learning that Norma was quite ready to  I stay for a couple of hours if necessary,  irr charge of the invalid.  1 "He's lying quiet enough," said Nance,  ��������� "as if he was asleep. He'll not take no  notice of you, most like, your ladyship,  nor so much as open his eyes. I'didn't,  tell him as how you was.so good as to  coom to him."  "All right. I'll take great care of him,"  said Norma, as she went into the cottage.  Nance had made lire sick lad a bed in  tho little parlor, into wlrieh the frorit  .ioor of the cottage opened; and there ha  lay in the corner, just as she had ;said,  with his eyes closed, and a dusky flush  on his face.  Norma sat down without making tire  least noise, in a chair which was jusfc  out of his sight if he should open his  eyes. She thought that lire sight of her  might disturb him. so that if he would  sleep on quietly without knowing sho  was there, it wott'id be better for him  than if she were to have to soothe him  by assurances that she had nothing to  worry him about whilchc was ill.  As" she sat there, recalling vividly the  scene which had been enacted irr that  very room only a short time before, the  group  of starllcd  faces,  the wondering  women, all* crowding round the figures  of Astley, tha doctor aud the boy, with  the 'very same smoky little lamp, smelling strongly of pru-alliir, burning on the  corner of the mantelpiece, Norma noliccd  llrat the invalid was beginning to grow  fesllcss, nnd to mutter and to turn in his  uneasy sleep.  Presently he woke with a start, and  looked nt her, apparently without knowing who she was.  * Norma offered him some water, as he  was moving his lips as if thirsty; he  drank a little, and then turned his head  away and was quiet for a space.  Before long, hwroesxr, ho began to'mut-  tcr, and prcsr.r.JlN<������w>rirra caught a few  words of sucherthilsus import that she  listened with LaeLuihiiiig cars and wild  eyes.  "No, no, I sw������;fv I swear I'll say nowt,  not if they flays nre, I woan't!" muttered the boy brokenly.  Then after a pause he repeated the  same words, varied by the repetition of  a word here and there, and then again  he fell into silence.  Suddenly he sat up in bed, and stared  before him with blazing eyes:  "Doan't do it, doan't* do it, doctor,  doan't, doan't! It's murder, murder!  Murder!"  He almost shrieked the Inst word, and  then, after a moment's silence, during  which he drew Iris breath hard, with  clenched teeth and. deep moans, he fell  back on the pillow with a shudder and  a- low-cryr  Norma shook with horror. Here then  was the truth, lire ghastly horrible tru-tlr,  wrung in his delirium from the unfortunate boy. Before she could move from  where she sat, the lad began again.  "Doctor, doctor, it's murder! Yon poor  chap's dead, und yo'vo killed him! No,  no, I woan't say nowt. I woan't .say  nowt!"  Always the same words, varied ever so  little; always lire samo grim horror dictating it nil.  And while Norma, with her face  turned lo the hed, listened, terror-struck,  still ns a statue, something made her  look up and turn to thc middle..of.-the  room;  There, listening also to the boy's ravings, nnd witness of her presence there,  was Dr. .Wharles, * white-faced, grim ol  aspect, desperate.  Norma leaped up from her w*at: brrl.  .with a hand of iron, he forced hev down.  :.���������:��������� /chapter xxn.  Norma con trailed herself by a strong  effort, arrd instead of appearing afraid of  the doctor, presently looked up at him,  and said:  "You frightened mc at first, Dr.  "Wharles; but I'm very jjlnd you've corae.  The boy's delirious,'ami his head U full  of the wildest fancies."  The doctor, who still had his hand on  her arm, looked at her for a moment  suspiciously, and their said, in a sort or  tentative way, ns if uncertain whether U*  bullv or to conciliate:  ',.  "Whnt did he say their?"  Before Norma could answer, the voice  of the lad broke out once more, crying  ;in a tone of abject fear:  "Doan't   hurt   me,   doctor.     I   woan't  say nowt, I wonn't, trust me."  '    Norma turned her facu again   to  llio  doetor, with an appearance of being deeply puzzled.  "There, he talks like that all the  'time."  she  said.    "I  suppose,  through  talking to you yesterday in the wooer,  where he was also on the night of the  , murder, he has mixed the two occasions  together.   Don't you think so?"  Dr.   Wharles  looked   her  full  in   the  eyes, tut Norma stood the test, returning his gaze without blinking.  "Ah, perhaps he has," said he.  But before he could say more tire hoy's  voice cried out again, more loudly than  before: "Doctor, doctor, doan't do nowt  to me.    I'll he as still as the dead, I  woan't say as how I see yo murder him!"  In spite of all her cave und  caution,  .Norma could not repress a shudder as  these   wild   words,   earnestly     uttered,  came from the dry lips of the sick lad.  Dr. Wharles mnde a  sudden movement  towards the bed, and she sprang up.   As  .he  turned  on   hearing  her  move,  they  .came face to face so abruptly that there  was  no   time   for  cither   to   prepare   a  mask:   the real  thoughts, the real  feelings  of each  were  shown  on  the  two  fSces:   both  knew  the  truth;   that  the  man was a murderer, and  that thc woman knew it.  Norma, knowing lire whole truth ns  certainly as if she had seen the doetor  commit the crime, could not support the  strain long. An irrepressible shudder  ran through her, and she sank down  again on the chair with her head turned  away, so that she might not meet his  eyes.  There was a horrible silence, broken  only by the mutter Ings and dcep-drnwn  breaths of the sick lad. Then, when Dr.  Wliarles had had time to collect his  thoughts, he went up to the bed and  looked at the boy.;  Instantly Noinm. turned, watching him  closely; and the doctor's fresh-colored  face {*rew pale as he read iir her eyes  suspicion of his possible intention.  When he spoke, however, his voice was  gentle and much softer than usual. Norma, who knew that his utterances were  usually of the furl-voiced sort to be expected from the full bloodrd type of manhood to which he belonged, thought the  unnaturally subdued tones uncanny.  "You are right, Lady Darwen, the boy  is full of wild fancies. I always thought  he must have seen something more than  he owned to on the night ol" the tragedy,  aird now I'm certain of it."  Amazed at bis audacity, Norma sat  stupefied, unable to make nny sort of  answer. The doctor took the lad's hand  in his, and went on:  "I am very strongly of opinion thnt  he knows perfectly well wko committed  the murder."  Seized with a sudden disgust at her  own attitude in temporizing with this  scoundrel, she answered recklessly, with  unmistakable dryness: "And J'm sure of  "it!" .'.,'������������������  With a rapid glance at him she noted  that the momentary pallor of his face  had been succeeded by a deeper flush than  before, and she knew that he took her  ���������words as a sort of challenge. He did  not turn his head, however, but sat still  on the 'boy's bed, holding his hand, and  'watching him.  His touch seemed to hat* a strange  .effect upon Ned Raggett. Instead of  crying out. as before, the lad lay very  still with the exception of a slight  twitching of thc rnusHcs of his face, and  .very silent except for occasional and indistinct muttering.*!.  "He seems quieter -ow," said the doctor, after what seemed to Norma a long  pause. She made ro reply. She was  watching every movement of his with an  eagle eye.   She knew well that the man  who. had not "hesitated at murder on one  occasion, would not shrink frfom a repe-  tition.'of the crime in order to hide the  evidence of his first misdeed.  Did he mean te kill the lad, the sole  possessor of his guilty secret?*  Dr. Wharles tur '.*������d his head suddenly,  and read her fear i;i her eyes. He met it  with a horrible smile, that showed his  white teeth but did "not reach his cold  blue eyes.  "Don't look so frightened, Lady Darwen," said he, "'������������������he lad's not so ill as  you fear. After a quiet night, he'll ba  better in fche morning, take my word for  it."  Norma looked down, and said nothing.  She held the firm opinion that the doctor was very anxious that Ned should  noj; only have a quiet night, but that he  should  remain quiet  for  ever.  There was another awkward-silence.  Then the doctor said, in his old voice,  ringing,  sonorous, cheerful:  "Would you go and ask your landlady  if she would go into the town and get a  little ice? I think 1 could make him  more comfortable with an ice-bag over  his forehead."  "Mrs. Giles is out," said Norma. "She's  doing her Saturday night's marketing;  and so are all the other neighbors, I'm  afraid." ,..''.  As she said this, she saw a look in the  doctor's eye which sent a chill, down her  spine. Drd he contemplate seizing the  opportunity of making away not only  with the sick lad, but with herself?  As he "rose abruptly from his seat on  the^bedplhe^fcar^wns^so^strong-upou"  Norma that he.meant to do some mis-  ehief either to her or the lad that she  sprang across Ure room nnd took her  place by the head of the boy's bed,  glancing down at the same time at the  lirtplnce by her side }o make sure that  the poker was ready to her hand in case  of need.  It struck her ns strange that Ned, who  had been quiet and silent, even in his  delirious condition, while the doctor's  touch was upon him, now begun to chatter and lo moan again, using always the  same words, with dull reiteration. And  each time that he called upon tire doctor  "not to hurt him, for he would say  nowt," Norma felt that the niurdercr't*  eyes were upon them both, and dreaded  an .attack.  The moments dragged wearily along;  she heard the tfe-tae of the clock in the  kitchen, the.movements of the fowls in  the yard outside, the slight sound of the  wind in the brandies of the trees on the  opposite side of the lane: but never,  strain her ears as she might, the sound  qf a human being near. It was indeed as  she had said: all the occupants of the  tlrreo cottages, except poor Jsed,, had  gone into the town: except for her own  powers of . persuasion, stratagem or  muscle, she and Ned were at the doctor's  mercy���������at Ure mercy oi" a desperate criminal." .*'  Ned was growing noisy again, waa  raising his voice to the old pitch, of  screaming terror: but thc doctor, who  knew that nothing could happen which  would either strengthen or alter Norma's  convictions concerning him, did not again  try to pacify him. Instead, he walked  thought fully to tho door, opened it, and  looked out.  Norma stared at him, watching every  movement. The dimly burning, smoky  lump and the red fire, combined to give  but a feeble and murky light. But it  I seemed that her senses wero unnaturally  acute, for not the srnaJlcst action,of the  doctor's, as He stood outside in lire liWJ-e  porch in the darkness, escaped her. She  saw him put his hand to Iris breast pocket, and, with a cry, sho rushed across the  cottage floor and caused him to start.  "Why, Dr. Whirries, you carry a re  volver about with you, then?" almost  shrieked ���������she, as she leaned, panting,  against tire doorway, nnd the doctor,  who had turned at hor words, staggered  a step or two backwards irrto the lane.  She had not seen arry weapon: it was  ���������nly her intuition that it was a revolver  his fingers were touching, when he put  up his hand. Brrt tins startled, guilty  look which flashed across his face at her  accusation told her Ural she had made a  good guess.  For one moment she stared out nt hirrr,  as he, taken 11 buck, found himself for a  moment without a reply. Then she shut  the door in his face, and drew the bolt.  Tiro boy's voice from the bed rang out  again, hoarsely:  "Doetor, doctor, I'll swear I sec nowt!"  Norma put up her, hands to her head,  giddy wilh the horrible sensations which  had followed each other so rapidly.  What would happen? She had lluiig  down the gauntlet now; she had let thu  doctor sec that she knew him to bo tire  murderer, that sho ferried irew outrages  on his part. Would he leave her thore,  and content himself with bold denial of  there being any truth irr Ned's ravings?  Or would Ire, since Ire appeared to have  for a moment contemplated some sort of  attack, carry out his intentions still?  The suspense she felt was horrible, not  to be borne. The cottage window���������there  was only one to this froni room ��������� was  shutterless. She crept towards it and  looked out. Whether the doctor was  ooncealed in the porch she could not  make out; and she could hean no sound  from outside.  She run across the room and into the  kitchen behind, to see whether he had  gone round to that entrance. But even  as she went, Ned cried out, in a voice of  terror that arrested her steps:  "Why do you run away? Is he after  you?"  He was sitting up in bed, staring at  her with eyes full of terror. Fearing  that the torment which he had been suffering would turn the lad's brain, arid  recognizing that her first duty was to  thc patient* of whom she was in charge,  she contented herself with shutting the  door of the room she was in and drawing a heavy chest in front of it.  Then she went quickly to Ned's side,  and, sitting beside him, addressed to him  soothing words which, to her great relief,  presently appeared to have some ell'ect  upon hirrr: for he allowed himself to be  persuaded to lie down again, muttering  still, but with less vehemence.  She was still sitting beside him, listening intently for the least sound outside,  When there. was a- violent pull at the  handle of the door.  Norma stood up abruptly, in attitude  of battle. But the voice which called  out sharply to her was not that of Dr.  Wharles, but of Nance Raggett, who  cried out:  '������>veri, open the door. I say!"  Norma ran to obey her, with a great  feeling of thankfulness that her watch  was over.  What, however, was her horror and  dismay when she found, on unbolting the  door, that she was confronted, not only  by Nance, but by the doctor, who followed the indignant woman into the cottage.  It was he indcad wiio spoke first. !  "Well, Mrs. Raggett, what did I tell  fou? We all know that your sex has  (���������rivileges, and rank also.. But for a lady,  lo turn a medical man out, and lock the*  Ioor upon him, when he wished to do  lis duty and try to alleyiflte the sufferings of his patient, is, I think, a stretch  iven of beauty's prerogative."  "It's a piece o' cheek aa ever I see!"  sried Mrs. Raggett indignantly.* "And  i'd ha' scon yo' nt t' bottom of t' sea,  ny lady though yo' are, if I'd ha' thowt  fo' meant to use Ned so!"  Norma, who felt how awkward her  position was, and how hopeless it would  jc for her to fry to get this woman to  >elievc her, with the artful, persuasive,  kandsome doctor using his utmost influence ngainst her, felt nevertheless that  die had better take up at once the posilion she meant permanently lo hold as  regarded tire whole matter.  So she turned boldly to Nance, and  laid:  "The Ind has been delirious for some  time. If you will hear what he says you  will undersland why I did what I did."  The doctor broke in: "Perhaps I can  ���������xplnin this lady's motives and actions  better than she could herself. Lady Darwen, naturally enough, takes sides with  her husband, who, as I dare say you have  heard, attacked me,in the open street  the other day on account of some family  affairs of his, in which he, quite wrongly, imagined that I was mixed up."  As he spoke the doctor laid an unpleasant emphasis upon the words "Lady  Darwcn" nnd "hor husband," in order, so  SHE   SIGNALS* ALL  SAILORS-  "Tho Little Uslit!i.,u������> Girl" KsTer FbIIi  to <;r<ict Ships Tlnit l'nai.  Sailormen who navigate the seas on  the South Atlantic coast are always  glad when they near the harbor of Savannah, for that means that they will  ���������pass within saluting distance of "the  little lighthouse girl." This, be It understood, Is the officially accepted title  of Miss Florence Martus, who has for  the last eleven years waved a friendly  signal to every craft passing between  the city and the sea. It is the hobby o!  this young girl to greet the ships that  go and wish them a safe return, and  Erect the ships that come and congratulate them on their voyage. She  6ays that the ships are her world. She  hasn't much world orrtslde of the marine houses, to be pure, for she lives  fwith her brother nnd her mother on  ���������the bleakest, most uninviting island  imaginable on the southern bank of  the Savanah Itiver, ten milc3 from  itown.  Tiro Martus dwelling Is thc only Trnu-  Station on Elba Island. There is no  'landing wharf and visitors arrive on  an average onco a year. George Mar-  ttus attends to tho range of lights which  keep the pilots in the right part of the  most tortuous channel in that part of  (the ocean. Besides the lighthouse Is  ithe cottage where these three persons  ���������spend their lives. Tho barks, tho  (steamers, the schooners and the various other craft never get near enough  for an exchange of greetings other than  (that expressive form of good will, the  waving of a handkerchif by day and of  a lantern by night. And as the girl  (sends out her welcome the seamen,  ���������who all know her and who woifld re-  Bent the elimination of the ceremony  [which she has popularized, send back  an answering salute, three "toots" of  Ithe steam whistle. Then Miss Martus  9s as happy as a belle at a debutante  party.  It is her desire that no vessel shall  pass the lighthouse without receiving  J ia salute. She never overlooks a sail  jn the daytime, and her handkerchief  ds ever ready for its service of cordiality. And at night she seems to feel Intuitively the approach of her ships, for  tshe has frequently marie ready the lan-  Itern before the expected boat*-hove in  '���������sight. She says It is her ambition to  signal every ship that touches Savannah. She was asked her reason for  ���������signalling the passing sea throng.

She, however, kept quite still, and endured the  rest of his speech with as much equanimity as the opening:  "When she undertook to watch by  Ned's side this evening, she no doubt  conceived thc idea of gelling him. to incriminate someone in the matter of the  terrible crime that was committed in firs  (rood across tho road the other'dny, in  Drder to divert the suspicion which, ns  we all know, rests upon Sir Astley Dar-  woa, the man whom poor Rogerson came  iio the town to see." ���������  Still Norma said nothing, though every  moment the doctor's tone grew moro bitter, more, insulting.   He went on:  "I understand, Mrs; Raggett, that Ned  was quite quiet when you left him?"  "Ay, he was lying quiet, most o' t'  time/'  "And yet, not an.hour later, no, nor  half an hour, I found liim. raving I"  Here Norma did glance up quickly, but  ���������he did not speak.

Mnny of our readers know Hint, in  the commercial world, if one's credit,  is not sufficiently good when l-nisinij"  the wind lie must get n note endorsed  It is the .same in liolilicnl life. "When  ri prospective candidate's credit has  been dissipated by past nrisdeeds lie  ���������wandersround promiscuously lookirrg  for endorsement. Xo man witli the  str-c-ngtlr of a. party behind him finds  it necessary to be endorsed, Ire comes  ���������forward as the straight candidate of  his political allies and stands fairly  and squarely before the electorate 'on  his own merits, lie does* not require  or ask for a crutch in the shape of  endorsement to enable him to pursue  Iris devious way.  AVith our usual prophetic eye we  located the political cripple to be  endorsed by the Liberal remnant here,  but hardly thought he .would ask for  more than one crutch. But J. JL  Kellie knows his weakness and has  not only appropriated a pair of  crutches, but a walking slick also.  They are quite necessary, hut such  confessions of weakness at the outset  mii. ill auguries of success. Yet we  "find him entering on the campaign  entirely unable to staird by himself,  supported on one side .by a few ���������Liberals, by a few renegade Unionists on  the othei', and providing a walking  stick for himself in the old , flim flam  "Independent." On the other hand  Thomas Taylor stands where he stood  in 1G00. He was placed in nomination  and elected as a Conservative their and  the same course Oi events will occur  on the piesent occasion. He serves  one iL-aster alone���������the people at large  ���������and does not descend to forming an  unholy trinity like his opponent, who  poses as a Lib-Lab. Independent, ilr.  Kellie should take to heart the  biblical adage, "no man can serve two  masters." and not try to get round it  by endeavouring to be a myrmidon of  tlFfee^ ^i^aAiie^iii^~ir~tbVe^Oo'u''ci^iv:'  clusion, but he would lietter have died  fighting as a recognizable political  entity than something, to use the old  saying, "neither fish, fowl, nor good  red herrinir."  and expel every Socialist as a traitor  to the cause of labour and a renegade  to the obligation imposed upon hiin  by membership. 'I'liis^danger is not  chimerical.. The Labour Commission  that, recently investigated trade disputes in B. C. iir its report gives some  interesting letters from Geo. Estes,  President of the V. B. R. E., to  Harold Toore, late organizer, irr one  of which appeal's:  "fir this way you will constantly  .stimulate anil augment a great, public  sentiment for. lire U. B. II. 15. for  Industrial Unions, for- the A. L. U.  and for- Socialism (Imt don't use the  word.)"  This absolutely, proves our: contention  that the presence of Socialists in  trades unions is part, of a concerted  effort tn bring the Socialist cult; into  union 'circles. But they insist, orr their  object* being well concealed ..and  accordingly President Estes says work  for Socialism'.'��������� BUT DON'T USE'  THE AArORD.": Asa. 'matter'of lac'l,  these letters were all sold to the. C.P.R.  by the organize..- who received but. a  a small sum of money for' bis betrayal.  Tlie motto of tire. American Labor'  Union Journal now circulated in'this  city hy'Jlr. Bennett's ''-committee, is  "The working class���������may tlieyalwnys  be right, but the working class "RIGHT  OR WRONG. The Socialists stop at*  nothing, realize no principle of right)  or wrong, bub are so anxiorrs for'  political power that self exposure is  always apparent. Right is Right for  the working as for other classes, but,  no man with the smallest sense of  justice .would claim advantages for  the woi'kingmen if such were wrong.  We liave cited a few instances of the  traitrous actions of Socialists in trades  unions' arrd will later on take, occasion  to expose the fallacies of the whole  creed.  A DISGRACE.  On Wednesday of last week II. -11.H.  Princess Louise formally launched the  battleship "Dominion," the" last of a  series known as the Edward vn. class.  In the course of the event the Duke of  Argyle, known arrd respected as  Governor' General of Canada when  ]\larquess of Lome, is reported to have  said that ������������������whatever was in any way  connected with Hie Dominion of  Canada, was sure to become a great  success."  Referring to the Dominion, was  Canada in any way connected with  the occasion ? A careful scrutiny of  the public accounts and Hansard fails  to disclose iinytbing but the name.  And, as Shakespeare says, "whats' in a  name?" If reference were made, to arry  other colony arrd battleships identified  with it wo would find that not only irr  rraruo but in fact the man of war  referred to had an additional connection with such colony. Formally years  New Soutii Wales and other colonies  in Australia liave paid the expense of  a. battleship in the imperial navy.  The Diamond Jubilee gave occasion  for. Cape Colony to present to the  Empire another in the "Good Hope."  But where has Canada been ? Echo  answers, "Where?"  NOTICE.

NO SOCIALISM  The underhand methods by which  the Socialists try to use trades unions  in their propaganda was well shown  in Grand Forks recently. The brunch  of the American Labour Union there  wished to put a labour candidate in  the field and finally decided to do so.  But the irren;who wished fora labour-  man, pure and simple, were disgusted  to find that ^immediately he was  nominated he avowed liinr.i'lf a  Socialist and accepted that platform.  Tbe result has been the withdrawal of  a large number of members and the  formation of a Smelter-men's Federal  "Union, affiliated with the Dominion  Trades and Labour Congress.  XVe have often warned our leaders  of these tactics and again state, without fear of denial, that tbe only use  Socialist have for trades unions i.s to  join theni and, when members, try to  undermine union principles and force  the Socialist cult. Kvery Socialist in  .1 trade union is a, traitor' to Hint  -union. Tlie proceedings are alleged to  Ik; laid bare lo the Socialist local.  Their* presence is a menace to the very  life of working men's brotherhoods.  Jf trades unionists would do their  duty tlrev would rise  in   llieir   might  The monkish axiom "Labor est  orare"���������work is prayer���������conveys in  epigrammatic form a most important  truth. Tbe definition of pi-ayer is "to  ask earnestly," aud with what greater  earnestness can a petition be made  than by sweat of die brow anil henest  toil. It is true today as in apostolic  tlays, "''^y^tlieii'^^flSi^yl^lw'irimow'  thenr." In this tiirre of tierce business  competition it is well to remember the  fate of worshippers of the golden calf.  Money i.i not the highest reward of  labour, it is found irr the consciousness  of duty done. Tin: man who does  with all his might whatsoever his  hand findeth to do is the true rich  man, the man of millions may be. poor'  irrdeed. Let us not forget that "Virtue is its own reward" arrd tho cardinal necessity of virtue is efficacy.  And irr carrying out thc furtlicrrnerit  of virtue the most potential inxtvu-  nient lias been trades unionism. It is  all very well to prate of the liberty of  the subject, of the sovereign right to  work of every man, but membership  irr the union of his craft is a guarantee  of cllicacy and that bis work will be  well performed. We krrow there are  socieiies calling themselves trades  unions that do not insist on proficiency as a sine qua, non for membership, but they cannot, be representative of a, trade, and are therefore  without the pale. And true, unionists  on Labour Day would do well to  recall who it, was that gave llieir  unions legal status. Georges Blown,  tire fathei' of Liberclism in Cnnneln.  impi'isoneel his printers when they  wished to unite. The Mackenzie  administration afforded them no  relieraird it, was not until 1&S2 that  the; Conservative government, uneler  the late Kir John A. Maceloiinlrl,  passed tire Act which has become tbe  magna chartn. of unionism in Oannrln  niiii ennbli'S rrrerr of every barrelii-.nil't.  to form brotherhoods for mutual pro-  tection, social advancement nnd  betterment of trade conditions.  The richest,'iar'gest, niejsfc populated  colony in the Empire lias been lip  loyal only and it is time for'a change.  A prefix she-ruld be put to the name of  the battleship just, launched. Itshould  be called "Not the Dominion." It is  a disgrace to Canada, guarded on tlie  east by the North Atlantic Squadron  and on the west by the North Pacific,  that nothing at all-has beerr elone  towards paying our share of the  expense. Britain is and always will  be "Mistress of the Seas" but it i.s  hard if she he not assisted in' retaining such comriianel by the premier  colony, this Dominion of ours.  The unpatriotic tactie-s of the  Liberal party are shown not only in  this way, but also by actually stealing  from the British excheepier money  paiel for the equipment of Canadians  to serve in South Africa.

CITY COUNCIL  The City Council held a short but  most important meeting on Friday  evening, the only business being the  fixing of tax lata for the current year.  The Mayor picsided and Aids. Foote,  Law, McCarty and McLeod were  present. After a short discussion the  rates were fixed at 13 mills general  and 15 mills special rate.  The special rate is for amounts due  on debentures and the general for  civic improvements. As the rate is  only on half improvements the  amounts to be realized are $7911.52 for  the special rate and $08*57.05 for the  general. After the usual rebate is  made it is pr obnble the amounts will  be $7000 and $0000 respectively. As it  is expected sonre $4000 profit will be  made un electric light and water there  is about $10,000 available for civic  work, from which must be deducted  the moving, fitting up and painting of  the new City Hall, costing about  $1250. Most nt the balance hus been  already appropriated.  Liberal Convention  The Liberals met iu convention on  Saturday evening and endorsed the  candidature of J. M. Kellie for Bevel*  stoke riding. Several wild'speeches  were made one alleging 05 % of the'  vote in Fish river. As half the  electors have signed the Camborne  Conservative roll the idiocy of such  statements is appaient. -  There is a rift in the lute, however,  and already rumours "are rife that  another 'convention will be called.  The reason given is that"- Mr. Kellie,  fronr his reactionary and straw clutching tendencies, is unacceptable to the  rank and file ,of the party.  .<��������� _���������     - Conservative Rally  A.large and enthusiastic meesing of  Conservatives * was held on Friday  evening. President Young in the chair.  Short addresses were made by Thos.  Taylor, A." Johnson 'and, others 'and  all present were confident of a handsome victory. The workers are doing  nobly and will not let up until after  election day.

Editor Herald:  Sir, I see in Saturday's Mail the  statement made that the Premier  knew all about the C. & "VV. dej.1 and  was present when the order granting  the coal lands was made. Is this  true ? ,  Inquirer.  Editor's note���������In the flrst place coal  and oil lands are not. under the  jurisdiction of the Minister of Mines,  which office Mr. McBride held in the  Dunsmuir cabinet. The only department which could be aware of the  lands in question was that of Lands  and Works, presided over by Mr.  Wells. In the course of his evidence  Mr. McBride swore that the reason  given by Mr. Wells for his recommendation was the saving of 300,000  acres of land, that no intimation was  given by Mr. Wells as to their value  and that the council meetiug of Aug.  10th, 1001, was only a step in the  negotiations to clear up the long outstanding dispute with the C. P. R.  In this connection it is well to note  the findings of the committee., "The  Minute of Council, which was placed  before the* Governor, signed by Mr,  Turner and Mr. Wells, although dated  the'lOth" August, was not signed until  some date later than ��������� the 28th of  August, 1901."        , *    ���������  'Mr. McBride left Victoria about  August 15th, and was in the city of  Revelstoke on August 25th and 26th,  1001. He returned to Victoria ori the  evening of Sept. 2nd and resigned at  10 a. m. on Sept.' 3rd. It will thus be  seen that he was present at the first  discussion of the matter and left  Victoria immediately after.        <  He was* not piesent * when the  Minute of Council was signed. He  was not in the Cabinet on Sept. 3rd,  when it was sent to the Provincial"  Secretary's office for transmission to  the Governor. He was not in the  Cabinet when the Order in 'Council  was approved. ' He relied on Mr.  Wells' statement. As he stated in his  evidence: "I never at any time went  into the full details of the thing; it  came from the Department of,Lands  arid Works, and it is customary, if the  Minister brings a ��������� recommendation  into Council, it passes." The inference  to be drawn is this, that although by  his oath of .office Mr. McBride., could  not divulge what occurred, there was  some dissension in the Cabinet as, if  not, why was not the minute signed  on 10th August, when considered?  That the disturbing element -was Mr.  McBride is inferentially proved by the  fact that, although nearly a month  old, the Order was signed during Mr.  McBride's ahsence on the mainland,  rushed to the Governor' the day he  resigned and signed by His Honour  the day after. This appears to be the  only correct solution or  a matter  thc  crux .of  which must, be   somewhat.  obscure owing to the secrecy, maintained by oath, surrounding the  proceedings at Cabinet meetings.

According to the Vernon "News",  The intermediate lacrosse match:  Revelstoke vs. Vernon, took place yesterday afternoon resulting in a score  of four to five in favor of Vernon.  The teams were pretty evenly matched  as regards weight, and the game  throughout was hotly contested, the  goals only coming after a great deal of  energetic stick-handling. -rrn.

"To actively assist by state aid in the develop*  ment of the agricultural resources ofthe province.  2. That in the meantime and until the railway  policy'above set forth can be accomplished, a gen*  eral railway act l>e passed, giving freedom to  construct railways under certain'approved regulations, analogous to the system that has resulted  in such extensive railway construction in the  United States, with so much advantage to trade  and commerce.  3. That to encourage the mining industry, the  taxation of metalliferous mines should be on the  basis of a percentage on the net profits.  4. That the Government ownership of telephone  should be brought/about* as a first step in the  acquisition of public utilities.  -^5.���������That-&rwrtm^ ���������  to be disposed of should lie reserved from sale or  lease, so that state owned mine.** may be easily  accessible, if tlieir operation becomes necessary  or advisable.  6. That iu the pulp land leases provision shmiM  be made for reforesting and that ateps tdmnld bo  taken for the general preservation of forests bv  guarding again*������t the -wavteful destruction of  timber.  7. That the legislature and government of thu  province should persevere in the ctfort to secure  the exclusion of Asiatic labor.  8. That the matter of better terms in the way  of subsidy and appropriations for the province  should be vigorously pressed upon the iHiminioii  government.  9. That the silver-Iuad industries of tlio province l������e fluttered and encouraged by the impfttd-  tion of increased customs duties on lend and  lead products imported int-u Canada, and that the  Contfcrvalive members ������f the Dominion House 1������;  urged to support any motion introduced for such it  purpose.  10. Tliat as industrial disputes almost invariably result in great loss niul injury both to tho  fiarties directly concerned and to the public, legis-  a*ion should be passed to provide means forati  amicable adjustment ni such disputes Ik*tween  employers ami employees.  11. Tliat it is advisable tn foster the manufacture of the raw products of the province within  the province as far as pntcticable by means of  taxation on the said raw products, subject to  rebate of the*same in whole or part when manufactured iu British Columbia.

Finally, the lion, growing confident, approached tire ass and said to, hiin:  "What are you doing here, comrade?  9*Tiat has mnde you so bold ns to come  beret   Who are you?"  To -whom the "ass replied:  "And who are you yourself that asl:  toe this i*' ' ������������������'  Then the lion, astonished at this proud  reply, answered:  "I am the king of all the animals."  "What is your name?" demanded tin  fcss.  "They call mo lion.

Nevertheless. I am of the opinion  that we would better prove each other."  Those words so puffed up the nss that  he turned his lwiek virion the lion, throw  his hind legs into the air and brayed  very furiously to the great surnriso of  ihe lion.  The evening now being near at hand.  the liou said to the ass:  "We will repose now, brother,, and tomorrow .morning prove .our strength and  skill."'He'wiio "Mien.'.shows himself be-st  tble to do three things which I shall  propose, shall be lord of the mountain."  To which t'lre ass agreed.  The -morning came, aud they arose and  went, forth in company till they arrived  at a deep nnd wide ditch. Then the lion  tsiid to thc ass:  "JBrancaliou, 1 am your friend, but i  shall never be nt rest till f know your  power and skill. Do me the pleasure, i  beseech you, now that the occasion pie-  scats itself, to let me see which of irs  ran best leap this ditch." Saying this, he  bounded to the other side.  The ass did his best to follow him, but  Scaped so awkwardly that he fell upon a  ���������jreai log in the. .'middle of the ditch,  where he was in great danger of death,  his fore feet and head on one side, and  ihe rest of his body on the other.  The lion, noticing  the perilous condition of the ass, cried out:  "What are you doing, comrade?"  But the poor ass was past answering.  So tie lion, fearing  that he  would die  Sf left to hang there upon the log, descended into the ditch and drew him out.  The ass, finding himself out of danger,  turned to th������ lion and heaped tinon him  all tire abuse in -liis power.   The lion, astonished   at   this   ungrateful     conduct,  asked why he thus upbraided hun when  fee had so kindly saved his life.  Tne ass, pretending  to  be angry,  re-  "C-omrade, my dear friend, I wa-s afraid  rou would drown irr the river. Tliat is  why I drew you out.

II.  ^ard, of 723 Pine street, Alameda, returned recently from a trip into the  mountains of southern Santa Clara  county, *where he had an exciting night  adventure while robbing the nest of a  golden eagle. Ward Is carrying his left  arm in a sling. Describing his singular experience he said:  " I went down lo Sargent's Station  to spend a week with the eagles, intending to study their nesting habits  and to collect some of thoir handsome  eggs.  "It was suggested  that *n*e try our.  luck by the light of the moon, and wc  determined to visit    nn eagle's   nest  which we knew of in a big sycamore  three or four miles distant.    We set  out with a fish basket to hold the eggs  and a pair of climbing Irons.    It was  about 10 o'clock when I began to climb  the sycamore.   There were no birds in  sight, but just as I reached the branch  near which tha nest was built in a big  fork I saw that the eagle was at home.  "It rose, bristling out all its feathers and making a hissing  sound.    I  had not expected any such opposition  and with a startled yell I struck at  the croatrrre with my hat.   There wae  a swish of wings and tho bird sailed  off.  "I moved along nearer the nest,  built of sticks as big as my arm, and  then suddenly I got a grip on the limb  and ducked. There was a rusti  through the air a few Inches from my  head that seemed to me like a small  cyclone. 'Fight liim off!' called out  inj' companion, and summoning all the  nerve I had left I got out my big clasp-  knife.  "I had not long to wait for a chance  to use it. With an angry scream I  saw the eagle swooping down for me.  ���������Looking my legs tightly about my  perch and seizing hold of a limb on  my left, I was just in time to prepare  tor the blow. The bird struck me  ���������squarely in the breast, nearly stunning nye, with Its wings, while it sank  its talons in my left arm to the bone.  I struck at lt with the knife, but It  was blind with fury, and, perhaps, talcing me for a marauding wildcat or  coon, fought desperately for my eyes.  "I felt my blood flowing while my  clothes were being torn Into shreds by  the wild passes it made. I knew that  I soon must fall to the ground or be  cut to pieces away up there in the  tree. It was a dreadful sensation.  With a howl of pain and terror I made  a last effort and plunged the knife deep  into the eagle's body. It seemed for  a moment that It would keep on fighting We. but weakening, it released  Us hold and fell off slantingly, to be  lost in the gloom, carrying n.y knife  with It.  .  "I was too weak to do anything but  hold on tor some minutes, and then  you can wager I took a long breath of  relief. Feeling sure I was now well  quit of the eagle I recalled what I was  tip in the tree for, and, looking Into  the nest, saw two fine eggs', which I  lowered safely into the basket.

She was fond of fishing!  Eagerly Mr. Snlvoly assured hlr* vial-  or of hla pleasure In putting his boat  t her disposal ano* gave hor cxhaus*  ivo directions as to the means of draining It.    A  delightful  half-hour cf  onverfiatlon  followed.    Aa though lt  7ere a magician's    wand tho    dainty  sh polo had placed the editor and his  ,'ucst at onco on    terms ot the    rnoiit  harming   Intimacy   and   tho   former  Itln't rememher ever to havs enjoyed  conversation bo   much ln   his life,  albeit the tain was *������*n������Uy of reuU  and rods and spoonhooks and other  instruments of slaughter.  All things, however, are bound to  >come to an end, especially In an editorial office, so it wasn't long before  Mrs. Tracy took her leave, escortei  down the stairway by her delighted  host ������������������-..���������  At the door they were met by a eplcy  breeze straight from the pine woods  across the bay,    Mr. Snively sighed.  "Where Is this wonlterful place yoi  are going to?" he asked.  "Ah, ���������'hat's a secret," sne replied  gayly. 'I promised I'd never, jieve**  tell."  "Oh, well, then I suppose it's i  crime to even guess." And onco more  the editor sighed as he glanced out at  the sparkling waters.  "But you've been so kind," exclaimed the widow, noting the sigh and immediately filled with compunction. '"It  seems ungracious of mc to keep it from  lyou who love so to fish." And then  as she saw him give another wistful  glance bayward she burst out impulsively: "Promise not to. betray me  aud I'll tell you���������It's Patchang Lake!"  'Patchang!" cried Mr. Snively in <uir-  p.'iae. "Why, I never heard of a lish  down there in my life."  "That's the charm of lt," she rejoined gleefully, "and the man who told  me about it (such a dear, dirty, old  fisherman he was) was fearfully atraid  some One else would find it out; sc  don't betray mc." And ehe hurried  away with a parting smile that made  the dusty pfice seem duller than  evsr when he got back to it and reluctantly commenced setting up iris  editorials, for Mr. Snively constituted  the whole working force o? the.Monitor.  And his task. too. seemed hardei  than ever,, after the interruption.  TTli.oughts of his pretty visitor kept  intruding themselves into tho midst o������  his most impassioned apeals to the  voters of Meloogic.  How blue here eyes were aud what  bewitching little ringj of hair the wind  had blown up under the big hat.  And then the fishing.  The editor of the Monitor shook his  head.    Could it be possible any tur.u  living could  have  a soul  so lost to  honor as to play a joke on a woman  who looked like that ? It seem***! impossible and  yet Mr.  Snively  was cs  sure*)there wasn't a fish within a mile  of Patchang as he    was    that    there  Hraent a free silver man in Molooiric.  Perhaps then Mrs. Track was sitting  In that yawl vainly waiting for Uie  bite he felt certain sho wouldn't get.  if,she sat there till the United Hrr.tes  got an honest government. And he  was actually staying at home and deliberately abandoning a friend to such  o. fate!  As this agonizirg thou-uht occurred  to Mr. Snively he dropped his type  and started for the door. But once  there 'he paused and slowly returned  tohis form, only to find it more and  more impossible to keep his mind on  his work.  At last he gave up tn aespah. ���������***  Taking a hasty stnvey of what Ic.'d  already accomplished ho found his col.  lumns tolerably full, with the exception of perhaps a single paragraph on  the local page. By hard ivork the following morning he might hope to set  up his pages and would trust to luck  Cor the missing paragraph.  Like all fishermen, Mr. Snively was  a firm believer in luck. He was hIfo  a mar. of action when he chose ana  within five minutes of this calculation  be had locked **jp tho odltoi-I.il department and was on his way to Patchang  Lake.  When he reached that nhallow sheet  of water a littlo lady In blue serge  f.at In' a boat In the centre thereof,  with an expression oi virtuous indignation on her sunburn*; features.  "What luck?" call-Jl the editor from  the shore.  "Luck!" cried ���������.he fair sportswoman,  iolefully. "There's not enough vater  !n this lake to catch cold in, much less  *t fish. All I've got for r,iy trouble is  i mighty poor opinion of flshermin In  g-eneral ani one dirty ou<* in partlca-  iar."  T"Come over here," stti'l .Snively.

"I can't," confessed the widow,  blushing with anger and mortification.  'I'm stuck���������In the nnd."  One moment the man of letters ho-il-  taled on the bank and then, with nn  Inward prayer that ho might at leant  pe spared to K-H out that wonk's ptrpe**  ho waded boldly Into the expanse of  treacherous mud that rolled betweon  bim and beauty In distress.

With hisacciifitoi/iod  methodical neatness he pulled off his  :oat, hung it behind lire door, nnd  carefully drew over his linen sleeves  i pair of black alpaca ones. Then ho  lighted his plpo and took his place at  the form.  There, Just as he had left It, was the  vacant space at the end of thc local  lolumn still yawning for the missing  paragraph.

Wc; It la Our   Clrl������ Are   nilfjudzcd   at  Uso* of Slitnc ���������-,*-*  There ls no reason at all why any  girl, ln however humble a station in  life, should not try her very best to'  speak good English,   tleading the bast  literature and listening to well educated people are both great means of  helping  her,  especially  If  she  offers  both tho sincere flatery cf imitation.  Thero nre a   good    many    every-day  faults in  speaking, which one  hoars  often from the lips of people in different stations  of life.    They  are    the  weeds of speech, and the moment ono  Is  recognized  lt  should Ijp  promptly  pulled up by the roots and cast aside,  Tho curtailing and alteratios ot certain words is not pretty.   Say an "invitation," not tin "invite;" a "face,"  not a "phiz;" or, worse .still, a "mug;"  a "cousin," not a "coz;" and remember  to say "photograph," and not "photo."  That poor word "got" is often sadly-  used, or rather misused.   It is wrong  to say that A is "going to 'eetl married," she is "going to be married;"  and   you   can. axpress   your   meaning  quite as well by "I have a-brother" as  by "I have got a brother."   People who  spoalc good English avoid long words,  and prefer saying "buy" to "purchase,1*  "house"  to 'residence,"    "begin"    to  "commence.   Also they never speak of  "sherry wine" or    "carriage   drives,"  but "sherry" and a "drive."   They also  recollect to apply "ride" to Its proper  use.   "They "ride" a bicycle, a horse  or doskey, but they "drive" in a carriage, team, or omnibus, and "travel"  in a train.    There are some expressions which are not pretty or indicative of gentle breeding.   I dislike the  "word "vulgar" so very much  that I  must denote these expressions hy the  term "common."  "That fat is in the fire," an expressive ot a quarrel or scene, is much used  by uneducated people, who also speak  of "outings," and worse still, "airings."  Instead of saying, "I got that pattern  from,," they  say, "I had it off her,"  which sounds very bad indeed.   In alluding to servants, do not say. "the*  girl," or,  "Miss  A keeps two girls,"  but use the word 'maid," or servants.1*  It is better to say, "I had to stay indoors,"  and, "stay   at  home,"  rather  than "-stop   at   home."     The   words  "stylish"   and   "genteel,"   ave   equally  objectionable   words.     "Father"   and  "Mother" are far preferable to "papa"  and  "mamma."  and  the latter  words  sound very foolish in the mouths ol  those who have passed childhood.   In  spsaklng of your parents to acquaintances say "my mother," "my father,"  not omitting lhe possessive pronoun*.  When anyone is speaking lo you, do  not jog them by saying "yes, yes" constantly;   it is not  polite.    Let them  take'their own time Cor saying what  they want to say.     As tor slang, a  little bit of it is perhaps permissible'  nowadays from girls who  in  formeu  years would  have been greatly condemned for using any.   However, it is  well to use a little discrimination for  a great deal of slang used by school  boys, men, or others, is very unsuitable to a girl,    A peculiar expression  used by some people should be avoided, and that is "out."    Some persons  when they are goin away for a holiday, or to leave the place they are in,  say they arc going "out."   If they said  they were "going out of town" it was  quite correct:   but "out"  by  itself is  ugly and incorrect.   To hear a person  say they "enjoy bad health" is absurd  and foolish on the face ot the matter.  You may say. "I dined," or "lunched",  or  "breakfasted,"  but   never  "toad;"  you must say, "had tea."   The habit  which obtains among some people of  nipping off the "g's" is extremely ugly  To hear of "travelin*," "slttin'," goin',"  etc.,'grates on one's ear, as all incorrect speech does, or ought to do.   Rus-  kin says:   "A well  educated    gentleman"���������and it applies equally to a woman���������"may not know many languages  ���������may -not be able to speali any butj  hla own.   But wbatever languages he  knows, he knows precisely  whatever  ���������words ho pronounces he pronounces  rightly.    Above all, he is learned ln  the peerage of words, knows the words  of true decent and ancient blood at a  glance from words of modern canaille."  "Provincial dialect, he also remarks,  "is not-vulgar, -but-Cockney__dial_e_ct is  so in a deep degree, because it is the  corruption of a finer language continually heard."    With care and attention a great deal may bo .done,   and  good anunciation 'be attained, as welll  as a selection of words In  speaking,  whicli will show a knowledge of English "As she should be spoken."  HISTORICAL LOVE   STORY  MADAME ROLAND'S LOVE  A Literary Romance.  The Mme of Mme. Roland is one ol  the most famous in French history  Her learning, her cleverness and hei  power in political circles are well  known. Her love story has been less  often told.  As a child in Paris, 150 years ago.  Manon Phlippon was the constant  companion of her father in his leisure hours. At other times she assisted her mother in thc household. When  alone sho read constantly.  Then she wns seut away to a convent school. Iir five years she returned Jearned, accomplished and beautiful.'  Many lovers sought her, but she  eared for none of them. liar parents  were glad, for they wished to keep her  with them.  Then camo a jeweler of great  wealth. Her father was pleased and  urjted Manon to accept hint.  But the girl refused.  "He does not know enough." sh������  said; "I can only be happy with my  equal."  The father was angry. He thought  her wilful.  The next suitor was a young physician.  "Now," said her mother, "Manon  will be satisfied. Dr. Dupont has a  profession."  "He knows nothing but his profession," exclaimed Manon disdainfully.  "A thousand things 1 have read he has  never even heard of."  In vain her father stormed and  raged. Even the tender, sad pleadings  of her mother could not move her.  "I am an invalid." said the mother,  whose health had failed. "I would  like to sec you settled in a home ol  your own, with a husband to care foi  you."  'I could not he happy. I do not  love him," returned the daughter. "I  would gladly do as you wish if I  could."  Mme. Phlippon said no more. She  had married a man she did not love  at the command of her parents, and  was not happy.  Shortly after this Manon's mother  died.    It  was  a  terrible  blow  to the  girl, who loved her dearly.    So great  was the daughter's grief that she became ill and her life was despaired of.  When she recovered she found comfort in her books once moro.  Then she met M. Roland.  He had long wished to    know her.

At the same time he ls working,  says "M. A. P.," on a new op'era.  For several months past he has  kept this a dead secret, and even his  most Intimate friends knew nothing  whatever about hip, project. But  ���������ovcntually they.began to make discreet Inquiries as to the reason why!  the tmaestro shut himself up so many  Ihours dally in his study, and it was  thus that they learned at last that he  was writing an opera.  1 But even now "Verdi is very reserr-  c'd upon this subject. All that Is really definitely known ls that tbe hero-  of the work is Nero and that a few of  the passages, which have been played  over to his intimate circle, are of exquisite beauty. Before giving the opera to the world Verdi will take the  advice of his friends, for he is afraid'  that (to use his own words) "this  chlid of my old ago may come into  lhe world weak, sickly and ill formed."

His broad brow expressed intellect. His voice was strong but sweet.  His usual expression was sad, but ut  times his face lighted up with bright,  winning smiles.  Above all, Manon found him in sympathy with her tastes and ideas. He  had read and studied much, and they  were interested in the same things.  They talked of poetry, of -philosophy, of history. They discussed the  lives of noted men and women and  the political affairs of different countries.   .  As yet they thought only of being  friends. ���������**���������  Then M. Roland traveled. He went  lo Italy, Switzerland, Sicily and Malta.  From every land he wrote Manon long  letters describing his travels.  For several years they corresponded.  Then they met.  - Manon was more beautiful than before. They were happy in each other's society.   "Mjtnon," whispered^ M. Roland, "let  us be "always happy a"s_we"*are_nowr*-  Why should we ever part?"  "If my father will consent," replied  Manon.  But the father would not consent.  He was still angry because Manon  had refused thc man he hnd approved.  Now ho would not allow her to marry  the one she loved. -  -���������  "It. I cannot marry M. Roland, I will  accept ho one else," said Manon firmly.   "I will enter a convent.    If need  be I will become the bride of Heaven."  Neither father nor daughter would  yield.   M. Roland was forced to leave.  Manon went into the convent where  years before she had attended school.  She did not spend her time in weeping  and   sighing.    Instead,   she  used  her every moment, in adding'to her  store of knowledge.  Nor was she resentful against hei  father. Each week she visited him,  mended his linen antl saw that everything was done for his comfort.  Six months passed. Then.M. Roland  appeared at the convent. He was, pale  and sad.  "Manon," h������ entreated, "I cannot  live without you."  "But my father," said Manon, hesitatingly.  - "Perhaps now he will relent. May I  not again ask him?" pleaded the lover.  They went to the father. He was  touched by their devotion. He consented.  So Manon Phlippon became Mme.  Roland.  Her noble, heroic, p-nltcd rli^ructer  called forth tlte admiration of Europe,  and still is remembered.

JQ- ���������.  &  n  A Very Impolite Dog.  A man ia New York State, -writes a  eorrespondent, ia the owner of a small  nut pure-blooded Skye terrier, named  Bex, whoso intelligence is remarkable.  Borne of Rex'a bright performances certainly are the result of reasoning power,  triHch used to be regarded as the gift of  bhe human family only.  Rex sleeps at the foot of his master's  if bed, upon a soft rug of his own.   He is  I y t dog of good habits, better behaved than  many children, in fact; but, like a, child,  he insists upon his rights: his own spot  before tho fire, his own corner of the  sofa., his own bed and, what is most interesting, his own bedtime.  Often in the evening when visitors remain beyond ten o'clock, Rex enters the  parlor, walks anxiously about, and lies  Jown in the very midst of the circle with  fc wearied air that cannot be mistaken.  1^ U the visitors still remain, he will rise  ft*. tud yawn, then mildly whine, and with  rapidly wagging tail seek his master's  lide and look expectantly up into his  face, as if to say, "Why "don't they go,  IO that we may retire?"  If all these tactics fail, he will drop  his ears and tail and walk to the door,  lometimes giving a sharp, cross bark, his  ("������������������hole manner indicating deep disapproval of such late hours.  Twice in his lifo he has done more than  to hint at his wishes on occasions of this  kind.  One wet evening a stranger, who was  , .sailing upon Rex's mistress, left his rubbers near the hall door. With the privilege of an old friend*, hia call was extended beyond the hour for Rex's retirement.  As usual, the dog' displayed his sleepiness and evident opinion that tlio gentleman was outstaying his welcome, but no  notice was taken of him until, with an  air of desperation, he marched into the  parlor with one of the callcr'3 rubbers,  laid it nt his feet, and then quickly returned with the other, which he placed  , beside it. Then, with a triumphant gleam  in his eyes, he backed off and stood looking at the stranger as if to say, "There!  Do you understand that hint?"  His second exploit was even more remarkable.' On this occasion a half-dozen  people had been playing \yhi3t with his  master and mistress. When the .game  was over, between ten and eleven o'clock,  they still stcod or sat about tho room,  engaged in conversation.  Rex was tired, and thoroughly out of  humor. No ono seemed to give athottght  to him, and nothing that he could do  attracted any attention. There were too"  many visitors to urge them all to do-  part hy producing their overshoes, even  ������f they wore them, but a brilliant idea  canto to him. He dashed upstairs to the  ���������deejjing-rooms, seized his master's nightgown, which lay ready for use upon the  bed, and, dragging it behind him, spread  it nt^hia master's feet in the parlor be-  }ovr, in full view of the assembled guests,  lliis stratagem wa3 a brilliant success,  for, amid shouts of laughter and the consternation of the master, the callers said  good-night.  .. .  Antipathies of Great Men. '  It is a natural human trait to desire  kinship with great minds, and partly  for this reason the world loves to hear  of the little weaknesses, inconsistencies,  and illogical prejudices of its intellectual  giants. .The following, then, a carefully  compiled and, so far as the writer knows,  absolutely authentic list of the antipathies of certain past-masters, may prove  of general interest, thinks "Punch":  Shakespeare, it seems, disliked a forced  abstention from victuals.  ���������Lord Chesterfield hated to have the  ahair upon which he was just sitting  down withdrawn from under him.  The Iron Duke .(and it may be remarked in passing that Lord Roberts of  t>ur own day has a- similar aversion)  would grow quite uneasy if shut up in  the same room with a mad dog.  Dr. Abornethy, a man proverbially intolerant of mere fads and crotchets, had  vet a strong personal objection to sleeping in damp sheets.  iSchiller would never, if he could avoid  It, write with a broken ni'b.  Carlyle never liked being alluded to as  a. "blithering idiot."  Seats would go out of hi3 way to  avoid a lunatic with a knife.  Faraday, _ the great ohemist, disliked  /he sensation of nitric acid on his  bands.  Macready had a great disrelish for  either the    flavor or    perfume of bad  *-gg������*  Mendelssohn did not like the sound of  J, finger-nail being drawn across a. slate.  A thumb-nail caused him similar disquiet.   Disraeli would  walk  about  or  stand  rather than sit upon a freshly-painted  oenoh.  . Dr. Johnson hated to have anyone run  ���������md butt itrm in the waistcoat.  Sir Walter Raleigh had a marked db-  Sion to prison life; and Lord Bur-  h, nis great contemporary, never liked  *o slip off a curbstone with hia tongue  ftetween his teeth. .  late-retted Motives.  Tbe fliwt mdasionariea who landed In  New Guinea had many difficulties to contend with, of which the most persistent  maa the suspicion of the natives.  The Rev. Jamea Chalmers, who was  there twenty years ago, says tiie pre-  railing theory was 'that the missianiuries  pad been compelled to leave their own  land on account of hunger. This was  iho oonvereatton th&t-book place shortly  liter his landing:  , "What ia the name of your country t"  "Beritani," which da the native corruption ot Great Britain.  ���������Is it a large land?"

Professor Curie of Paris, wiio, aided  i>y his wife, discovered and extracted  from pitch-blende the strange substance  :alled radiuru, recently remarked that  ho would rrot venture into a room containing orre kilogram of radium be-  :ause it would probably destroy iris eyesight, burn oil' his skin, und even kill  liim. Radium gives oil more abundantly  than any other . known substance tho  mysterious emanations named Becquerel  rays, which ure supposed to consist of  almost infinitely ininuto particles. Thoy  are driven oil with a velocity as high as  100,000 miles per sccorrd, and cause  serious inflammation*, upon the hands of  persona working with tho substance.  They also give rise to luminous effects.  In consequence of the construction of  Iho great Assouan dam on the Nile, (100  miles above Cairo, the famous temples  an the Island of l'hilao are partially submerged when the reservoir is full of  water. Hut the civilized world would  not willingly see these magnificent relics  of antiquity destroyed, and accordingly  an elaborate system of underpinning the  buildings was adopted. Some of the  colonnades and temples were found to  be resting on fractured stone beams,  broken by subsidence of tlie soil. Heavy  steel girders, enclosed with rubble  masonry and mortar, which protect  them from corrosion, wore placed under  the broken foundations.* nd the masonry  waa carried down to bed rock beneath.  The work was done in the face of considerable danger, but without accident.  The project of climbing the loftiest  mountain on thc earth, Mount Everest, in  the Himalayas, whose tremendous head  rises, according to trigonometrical .measurements, 29,002 feet above sea-level, has  now reached a stage immediately antecedent to the actual attempt. A party,  led by Mr. Eckenstein, an experienced  climber, has set out for tho foot of the  (jreat peak. Several celebrated mountain-climbers have expressed the opinion  that the feat is feasible, but only by  the method of gradual ascent, whereby  the adventurers may become inured to  the effects of a rare atmosphere.  Months, and even years, may be spent  in ascending to higher and higher levels,  a long pause being made after every  considerable advance. The highest  ascent now on record is that of Aconcagua, in the Andes, tlte elevation of  which is 23.0S0 feet, 5,022 feet, or more  than a mile, less than the height of  Everest.  Recent pres3 despatches announce the  discovery by a professor in Prague of a  lamp lighted by means of bacteria. Of  thia report "Tho .Lancet" (London) remarks: "We suppose that the discovery  amounts to an improved method of feeding photogenic bacteria, the existence of  which has been known for some years.  . . . The experiment is quite simple  and easily succeeds. All that is necessary is to plane the flesh of fresh haddocks or herring in a two or three' por  cent, solution of common salt, keeping  the mixture at a temperature of aboirt  7 degrees C. above freezing point. After  a few days it will be found that not  merely the flesh "of the fish but also the  whole of the liquid in which it is immersed gives off' a pale greenish light,  which becomes much more brilliant if a  little sugar is added. ; . * . Doubtless  by paying attention to the needs_ of  these specific bacteria���������by employing,  for example, highly stimulating food���������t  more intense light than was hitherto the  case has been obtained. It is even suggested that the bacteria light might  afford a safety-lamp for the miner."  Probably few persons who go up or  down Broadway or any other important  thoroughfare of New York city have  ever stopped to ask why the hands ou  the faces of nearly all the big wooden  clocks that swing as signs over jewelry  stores indicate that it is eighteen  minutes past eight o'clock. These clock  hands indicate; according to the New  York "Tribune," the exact time in the  evening when Lincoln, nccompanied by  his wife, left the White House on April  14, 1805, to go to Ford's Theater, Washington, where John Wilkes Booth, the  actor, shot him. The man who first  originated this wooden clock sign idea  Irad a workshop in a downtown street in  1805, and shortly after the assassination  ire conceived the idea of painting the  hands on all hia signs to point out this  special time. His successors in the  business continued the practice, as -lid  other men. There is probably not a  great street in New York city to-day  that has not one or more of these reminders.  Tobogg-aningi Into a Bear.  A member of the Wellman polar expedition of 1808-P, Paul Bj( rvig, is described by Mr. Walter Weiiman, in "A  Tragedy of the Far North," as a man of  superior courage, of unexampled fortitude and of inspiring character. If fclrero  was a bit of dangerous work to do, he  was sure to be the first to plunge in. He  sang and laughed at his work. If ho  went down into a "povridge," half ice  and half salt water, and was pulled out  by hia hair, hc came up with a joke  about the ico cream freezer.  One day three men were out bcar-hunt-  Ing on an island. Two of them had  rifles, the other had none. The last was  Bjoervig. They found a bear, wounded  him, and chased him to the top of a  glacier. There bruin stood at bay. Ono  of tiro huntcra went to the left, another  to the right. Bjoervig laboriously mounted the ice-pile to scare the beast down  where the others might get a shot. But  one of the hunters became impatient, and  started to climb up also. On the way  ho lost hia footing, fell, and slid forty or  fifty feet into a pocket of soft snow.  At that moment, unfortunately, Bjoervig frightened the bear. Leaving the  summit of the ice-heap, the beast slipped  ind slid straight toward the helpless  man, who was floundering up to his armpits below. Apparently the man's life  was not worth a half-kroner. In a few  seconds the bear would be upon him, and  would tear him to pieces. The brute was  wounded, furious, desperate.  Bjoervig saw what he had to do. He  did not hesitate. He followed the bear.  From his perch at the summit he threw  himself down the precipitous slope. He  rolled, fell, slipped straight down toward  the big white bear. He had no weapon  but an oaken skee-staff, a mere cane;  nevertheless he made straight for the  bear.  Down tlie hillock slope he came, -bumping and leaping, and yelling at the top of  his voice. His cries, the commotion  which he raised, the vision the bear saw  of a man flying down at him, frightened  the 'beast half out* of his wits; diverted  his attention from the imperiled hunter  to the bold pursuer.  This ivas what Bjoervig was working  for. _ The bear, dug his -mighty claws into  the iee and stopped and looked at Bjoervig, but Bjoervig could not stopl The  slope was too steep, his momentum too  great. He dug his hands into the crust  of the snow; he tried to thrust his skee-  staff deep into the surface. It wns in  vain. Now he was almost upon the bear;  the beast crouched to spring at him. Another second and it would all be over.  Crack! the rifle spoke. The man down  below had had time to recover his equilibrium. Another shot'and the battle was  over. Bjoervig and the bear rolle'd down  together.  . "You saved my life," said tho mar.  with the gun, when Bjoervig had picked  himself up.  "No, no," responded Bjoervig, whipping  the snow out of liis hair, "you saved  mine."  The Domestic Shah.  i  Spoiled the Scene.

This untamable little creature, which  Is well called "The Terror of tho Neighborhood," is perhaps the most feared and  dreaded of all animal*;, and the one that  causes the most aggravation.  Most peopie have Uie samo instinctive  desire to throttle a boy at sight, and on  general principles, that they have to kill  a snake. Unfortunately, the law prevents this; and as it has been found inexpedient to keep it confined like a lion  or a jackal in a steel cage, out of harm's  way, human beings have been unable to  protect themselves against a creature so  bloodthirsty that it finds its chief delight in torturing its victims.  Thia causes everyone to view the advent of a Boy in a community witb  alarm, while the presence of two or  three depreciates the value of property  and makes nervous people flee from the  vicinity.  Although naturalists have devoted  much time to the study of this subject,  they have never 'been able to definitely  classify the Boy, owing to his partaking  of the obnoxious traits of all the other  animals. Physically, it is all Stomach  and Yell, with a rudimentary heart and  no soul.  Notwithstanding all this, however, the  Boy ia greatly_ esteemed as a household  pet, and is quite generally kept in that  capacity. Indeed, few families are satisfied and happy without one, although  after having received* one they never  know another minute'3 peace and quiet  as long as they have it about the house.  This is the most startling fact in all  natural history, as, having observed their  friends' boys, one would think that no  money could induce a person to undertake to raise a creature that was so  much trouble.  In looks the Boy presents a curious  anomaly, as it changes at different ages.  When it is quite young, and at the time,  it may be observed, that most people select it, it is soft and beautiful, with nn  angelic expression that appeals strongly  to female owners and causes them to  rave over it.  '. A little later it gets stringy and long-  legged, with pale green ������ freckles and  warts, and generally uncouth and unprepossessing appearance; Fortunately,  ���������however, 'by this time its owners have  become attached to it; otherwise it  would be cast out to perish.  The habits of the Boy afford a most  instructive study. It eats steadily from  the time it gets up until it goes to bed,  and devours the most indigestible substances with perfect impunity. Green  apples, liquorice, hunks' of bread and  meat, doughnuts and whole pots of jam  disappear down its throat without raising the slightest commotion in its stomach. When it is not opening its mouth  to poke food down, it is opening it to  emit a series of hideous sounds, so practically a Boy's mouth is never shut.  These sounds are unintelligible to human  beings, 'hut are apparently understood  by its mates.  Naturalists also call attention to the  fact that a Boy is the only animal that  spends its time in play; arrd it 'hasbeen  further observed that it soon wearies of  any sport that does not hurt someone  else. Another curious thing is that although a Boy can play all day, he becomes ill and weary the nunute work is  suggested to him or he starts to school.  Thia is probably constitutional.  Occasionally a boy has been broken in  to do a few household tasks, but it requires so much energy and trouble to  make it do any useful work that few  people fcave the physical strength to attempt it.     .  'Boys are also femiphobes, and frequently bite and kick when a pretty girl  desires to kiss them and stroke their  hair. In time, however, they can be  broken of this bad habit, antl taught to  endure female caresses with much equanimity.  The chief characteristic of a Boy is  hi3 aversion to* soap and water. In this  it is like the. cat, and it is witli difficulty  driven near the bath tub. It also balks  at 'being dressed up and shown off before  company. Now and then, it is true, you  find one who will consent to be adorned  in Fauntleroy collars, and who will get  out on the floor and do its little tricks  without the whip, but these are never  pure-blooded Boys. They are mongrels  ���������with a strong strain of Sissy in them.  A curious tiring in this connection is  that everyone who owns a Boy believes  that he is a wonder and will be a future  winner in the show. He also bitterly  resents the insinuation that hia Boy possesses the same characteristics of other  ���������boys, or would be guilty of such a tiring  as breaking windows or ringing old  maids' door bells.  Most people, aa has been said, like to  keep-a-Boy- them selves,- but -all,-wilhoui  exception, object to their neighbor's, and  those who have none get even by prophesying evil things of the Boy acrosa  Hie street. Sometimes, however, the  creature turns out well, and then wo all  brag that ire knew it when it was a  Boy.  His Complaint  .

"Before the mists arc scattered along  Rue Duperre hy a tardy sun rising above  the white towers of Sacre Coeur. on the  heights of Montmarlre, when the goatherd, in liis blue smock and sabots, has  driven his flock before the wild music of  his pipe along Rue des Martyrs beyond  Montmartre, into suburban Paris, there  Is a, gathering of tho* brotherhood of  models around the fountain of Place Pig-  alle. They gather there every Monday  morning of the year. It is an old custom of the quarter, the origin of which  is forgotten in tire melee of traditions.  "It is a strange group of humanity,  these models, in their varied and eccen-  trio costumes. Velveteens, long cloaks  ���������(which drape the figure with a certain  picturesque grace), wide soft hats, and  long hair seem to be the accepted mode,  as well as the peasant's costume of Italy,  which the women sometimes wear. The  men who possess costumes* usually carry  them in a bag of bright stuff un*dcr their  long cloaks.   -  "The commandirrg Raphael,' whose  name, no doubt, wu3 chosen after hia  choice of profession, occupies the central  position, partly by reason of his great  height and also because ha is a bulwark  around which the weaker members cling*  He is to a limited extent a born tragedian. His natm-al pose is one of uncompromising fierceness, lie, the mildest-  hearted of old poseurs, would make a  splendid model for a bandit, with his  fierce brows, long wild looks and beard.  "A little pathetic, faded, grimy figure  by liis side is 'grand mere,' as they call  her, an old, gray-haired woman, still hugging the illusions of her youth, and wailing in tihe tawdry splendor of her national costume for the painters who  used "to celebrate her, and who have long  since passed by for the last time. The  kindly Raphael taps his brow significantly, and murmurs 'Bile est follel'  "And that little rogue Jean Dagnano  of the glorious melancholy eyes! It is  not often tliat Jean joins the group at  tlte Place, for he is a much-requested  model, and his engagements are made  ahead, but sometimes he comes looking  like a little old man in his long trousers,  much too big for him, and great hat  which reposes comically over his ears.  But even in those absurd clothes he has  a certain charm���������the union of the ludicrous witli the beautiful.  "Tlie young Madonna but recently  como from the vineyards of Italy, her  brown cheeks still warm with Southern  sunshine, has learned the value of a  sweetly maternal expression, and is always provided with an enfant of the  proper age, even when she must rent it!

"Raphael, with a step forward, tosses  his head and knits his shaggy browa into  their fiercest expression; the elder Dagnano turns his martyred eyes heavenward; the Madonna rests hers tenderly  on the infant for whom she is paying a  franc a day; the short man with thc  bushy hair, whose figure shed of its  strange garments is a model of athletic  power, turns his back (which is his good  point) and demands a light of his gay  friend!
