Keeping of poultry combined with  tare of small fruit makes the land  doubly useful and the profit more than  double, as each crop assists in thc protection of the other, while the waste  enriches the soil, and, if well stirred,  rotation of crops and health of fowls  are better than if cither is pursued  ilone.  With the exception of strawberries  ind grapes, fowls  enjoy thc shade of  .���������he vines, without injury to the crop,  ���������ind will do much good in picking up  :he fallen fruit,  and  thereby  destroying the  worm,  which  does much  toward preventing the.scourge of <h *se  Insects during  another  season.      The  shade, too,  is very essential to fowls  during the hot summer days, and while  they  scratch    and  wallow    under the  bush the working of the soil keeps the,  moisture  in  the ground  and improves  the crop.     If the little chicks are free  to run in the garden as well, their food  will consist of worms and insects injurious to the plants ; in th's little difference thc amount of lood  saved in  reeding them will be many dollars during the year.      Many    breeders  seem  afraid to let their poultry bave access  to the garden and berry field, while  I  have   always   found    their  presence   a  benefit   to    the    crop.      My flock  is  healthy, free from lice and disease, always laying, and go about with a Hve-  ly cackle, seemingly glad that they are  so ; and I reap a profit from them jnst  because  I give them  nature's way  as  far  as possible  in cliickendom.  To conclude, I think $20 worth of  fruit, and $20 worth of eggs and poultry can be raised on a single village  lot each year.���������Michigan Poultry  Breeder.

The present time is. most favorable  for the production, fattening and marketing of farm chickens. There has  been such a substantial increase in :hc  consumption of chickens and eggs  within the last few years that it is not  possible to rear a greater number of  suitable market, chickens than can be  sold with profit. Last year there were  not sufficient chickens sold in Canada  to supply the home markets. As a result of the shortage the trade with  Great Britain was lessened. This is  unfortunate on account of the great  demand for Canadian chickens in Great  Britain and the good prices that are  paid.  The chief of the poultry division. Mr.  F. C. Hare, states that numerous letters have been received from produce  merchants, poulterers and'commission  merchants who desire to learn in what  localities chickens can be bought in  great numbers and at reasonable  prices. From several Canadian cities,  and especially from Montreal, produce  firms have asked to b(i informed where  market chickens suitable ior shipping  to Great Britain could be obtained in  the greatest numbers. British poulterers and commission merchants have  repeatedly asked for the same'information. The letter of a well-established  produce house in London, England,  was received last week. This firm wished to "start an undertaking for the  purpose of importing Canadian poultry  to Great Britain." They desired in- .  formation as to the probable success ���������  of such a project and the_ possibility,  of obtaining poultry (especially fowls)  in large quantities, and the best districts for the collection of theni. L?.st  fall a firm in Cape Colony wished.a  poultry trade developed with that colony. One shipment of Canadian chickens was made to Cape Colony, which  arrived in a satisfactory condition and  pleased the trade. A New York firm  wrote.that they desired to import  Canadian chickens and were recommended  by the   department  to  a  firm  *TS the rising generation  ot American  girls  ls not taught to use the speaking  voice  properly  we   shall  develop   Into   a  race      of      unconscious,      unintentional  shrews.    It some rich woman -wished to  bring upon her head the blessings of posterity, sho should endow a chair of voice  development, which  would not necessarily include singing lessons."   So said Miss  Helen Lord, one of the prima donnas in  "���������The Runaways," as she sat at a table In  tho centre of a smart restaurant.    "Listen to the penetrating feminine voices all  around us, shrilling-, almost shrieking In  head tones.   And 1 am sure that not one  of thoso women realizes that her remarks  are being heard all over the room,   tf she  did she would talk less of personal matters.    Ride on  the elevated  trains or on  open   surface   cars,   and   your  head   will  ache more from the piercing voices of the  women around you   than  from  the combined din ot tram nnd street.   Have you  ever   had  a  telephone ring  In  your ear  because the woman at the other end of  the  wire was using head  tones ln   talking ?    It Is frightful.    The  true  root  of  evil  Is  that tho American woman either  cannot or will not use her speaking voice  properly.    Hundreds  of  dollars  to  cultivate a singing voice, but not one cent nor  a jot ot her time to Improve hor speaking voice !   Massage and lessons ln physical  culturo to  develop a plump throat,  but  not  llvo  minutes   a day  to enlarge  her chest.   And yet a gentle voice Is woman's most effective weapon.    If a woman will stand squarely before her glass,  with lier shoulders back, her head high,  while she slowly inflates and empties her  lungs, she will secure excellent chest development.    Then let her give the sound  of double O (ool as the (unps ore emptied,  but in rich,  low  tones,  "which she  feels  como   straight   from   the   chest,   or,   as  one woman expressed to me, from the pit  of her stomach, and she will have taken  tha  first  step  in   developing  a   pleasing  speaking voice.    Next,  let her  take  the  same  position   and  count  up   to  ten   as  slowly   as   possible   wliile   emitting   one  long breath, steadily increasing her chest  expansion.   Then let her practise her new  speaking tone on her family, seeing how  deep she can place her voice and yet be  heard distinctly by members of the homo  circle.   When on trains or walking on the  street let her aim to strike a voice tone  below the din, and not above It, so low.  In fact, that it rings like a second or alto  part In singing.   She can then be heard fis  distinctly as if she tried to shout above  the roar of street traffic, and her voice  will  lose that penetrating, shrill quality  ���������which   is   the   hallmark   of   the   ill-bred  woman."���������Exchange.  Artists  and Fashions.  The Tailor and Cutter's * art critic  (London) is again lamenting the lack of  sartorial knowledge displayed by portrait  painters in their pictures at the Royal  Academy. In a recent issue of the journal he exclaims, in large capitals, that if  these pictures represent the present day  school of British artists, it is "high  time England awoke!" "Are men's clothes  to-day," he asks, "so utterly unworthy  of the painter's art? Are" they so completely devoid of taste and beauty that  they are so shamefully reproduced? They  cannot prove otherwise than to be tho  laughing-stock of tailors and tnelr customers." Coming to details, the portrait  of Lord Mount-Stephen shows a '*t.*>!:il  absence of buttons on the coat.; there Is  not a buttonhole In the lapel, and tha  trousers are quite innocent of seams. The  coat and vest are contortions ln black,  the trousers a smudge In grey.  "There were few of the pictures. Indeed, that portrayed a gentleman In ordinary dress that was the least bit.like  what  gentlemen   of  to-day' wear.  '  "Coats are so miserably drawn that  they bear no possible resemblance to tho  originals."  In one portrait "the right lapel Is at  least five times as large as the left."  while In another "there is one solitary  buttonhole in the lapel, and that is large  enough for three,and there Is not a single  button indicated on either the coat or  the vest." One coat presents "a style  that no ono but. an old -woman who is  brought Into the house sometimes to  mend the clothes would adopt. It is a libel on tallordom."  A reverend gentleman, alas! Is portrays  ed with his sleeve half way up to his elbow. * . ��������� i ������������������......

Dressing the Wirksworth Wells  With   fltHnrj mirth   and jollity  "Wirksworth, in Derbyshire, celebrated the centenary of the annual custom of dressing  the   wells   or  -taps."    AU   the   previous  night long ln the streets of Wirksworth  the people worked hard wiUi mosses and  llowers   nnd  grasses,   drossim*;  tlie   wells,  in annual pursuance ot a custom which ls  really   thousands   of   years    old.     It    is  chronicled   by   Seneca,   and   was   carried  out ln  Pagan ritual   by  the Greeks and  the   Romans.    When   yesterday   morning  broke there were decorated shrines inside  the old Derbyshire town, and flower-built  structures   hard   by   the   gaunt   quarries  whore millions of tons of hard stone have  been hewn out of the sides of the great  round   hills.    Little   boys   and   girls  with  strong  Midland accents sprang out from  tho small  shrines and  rattled  mugs  and  asked the pusscr-by for a copper for the  wull-dressers,   and   at   the  large  shrlnea.  architectural  structures of  noble  dimensions and praiseworthy design and coloring,   men   and   women   kept   watch   and  ward, and set white china bowls on snow,  white   table cloths  for   the   reception   or  coins thrown down In  admiration of the  work.    As  a matter of  fact,   there wero  no wells.    Tho decorators piously erected  monuments  for  the  occasion    In'*' places  where  the  wells   used  to   be  before   the  prosaic   days   ot   waterworks.     A   great  slab  based  on  mlnernl  water boxes,  approached   by   nn   improvised   lawn,   and  decked  out  with  a really charming  picture  of Chatsworth.  nil  done  in  llowers  nnd berries to  make   the   lines  and  different colors   fthese stuck on  with  deftly-handled  clay),   won   the  first  prize  of  seven sovereigns.    The  red  berries  were  used  beneath  the picture    to    limn    Ine  words,   "Fountains and  gushing itrsa-ns  murmur,   "God  is  good.' '*    A  stream   of  water forced through a gas-burner made  an   effective  nnd    feathery    fountain    In  front.     Most   of   the   shrines   about   the  town  (and there were  several   iozens o������  them)   bore   scriptural   texts.     The   frst  prize was  won  by Mr.   Luther (Jould,  a  mason's laborer ; the second (������0) by Mr.  Isaac Gratton, general dealer ; the third  (������5)   by  Mr.   William  Leeson.   a farmer,  and the fourth (������4) by Mr. William Oakley, a bricklayer's laborer.  Unionist Fault-finders.  The Parliamentary reporter of The  Christian World says, in its Issuo of May  28th :���������There ls scarcely a sitting at which  some of the most crushing criticisms ot  the Government do not come from thoir  own side. In fact, the lethargy of leading  Liberals Is sometimes excused on the  ground that lt allows a greater opportunity for the Unionist fault-finders. The  opportunity was improved on Monday  night, when Sir George Hartley sneered  and Sir John Gocst scoffed, and when  even faithful Mr. Klmber, and equally  faithful Mr. Cripps, hotly denounced the  constitution of the education authority  designed for London. Passion flared up  when Mr. Mlddlemor-e, one of Mr. Chamberlain's colleagues In the representation  of Birmingham, Joined in. the denunciation. Mr. Walter Long aiid the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Education, who were in charge of the bill,  had been Impatient nnd disdainful under  criticism,. Sir William Anson's attitude  being that of an Oxford don among  troublesome undergraduates. "Rubbish! '  exclaimed one Minister to the other. In  an undertone. Tho word reaching Mr.  Middlemore. he exoressed his enraged  feelings with almost savage severity. It  was generally supposed that the offender  was Mr. Long, who carries on a. running  commentary, but subsequent reference  proved that the contemptuous word had  fallen from Sir Willian Anson. "He  speaks," said Mr. Middlemore, "as if he  were one of: the deities���������ns if he wero  omniscient. ��������� All the time, sir, he ls only  an ignorant child of time, for whom it  ls enough to follow his nivn nose." A  roar of laughter from the Liberals greeted  these words. They were uttered, as.Mr.  Middlemore afterwards remarked, in "a  moment of irritation," but thoy seemed  to have been lying in his mind. They  revealed in a flash how strained are tho  feelings of certain Unionists.  Boer Doctor in British Prison.  The London Daily Mail of June 1 says:���������  Dr.  F. E. T.  Krausa,  late public prosecutor and Governor ot" Johannesburg, who  ���������was convicted early last y-rnr in connection with the Broeksn*r.i-D*ju^las Forster  matter,  has   now served  fourteen and a  half months of his sentence���������two years'  Imprisonment    without   hard    labor���������and  will be liberated from Pentonvillc Jail on  August 29 next.   "Infirmary No. G." as ho  ls officially described irr tho prison register, has grown much stouter since his incarceration,   and,   although . the    yellow  prison garb sits strangely upon the dapper   young  Afrikander,   he   speaks   wilh  enthusiasm and gratitude  of his  British  custodians.

Iio   added,  jokingly,   "I   have   earned   ten   shillings  since I came here.   This, with the Ills Id  I hnd when my career was Interrupted. Is  registered   in   my   favor."    Ills     Is     the  "otium"   without   the   "dignitatc."     "'infirmary No. 0"  is not. however,  without  the wherewithal to commence a new start  in life.    Though  "dlsbaured," and.  therefore, unable to practise as a hnrrlster In  the   British  courts   by  a  dec's! .n   of  his  former Inn, Dr. Kranso will endeavor to  obtain his rehabilitation utter his release.  He also Intends to visit America, ai.'d ls  petitioning the Home Ofllce for a remission  of his sentence.

"The truth is, we have been living in  such a state of misery and anxiety, always afraid of being found out, and  wretchedly poor, boGause nearly all Sir  Astley's money wont to Frank and his  wife, that we'didn't know what to do.

"I���������don't���������think���������we do," sobbed Mrs.  Finch. "And now, oh, do let us get  away before Sir Astley comes, do, do let  usl I wouldn't face him for the world!"  . "You could face him" at Leamington  though, and with a lie," said Mr. Capper  -trying  to   screw  my  courage    up,  but   st���������rllV   "By the'by," hc went on, with  -afraid it would be of no use, since he was  Already married to someone else, so that  le would feel there was iro tie, even the  slightest, between us and himself any  Eonger. ' So I went away from Oxford  -without speaking to liim!"  "If only you hadn't done that!" sighed  Norma. "That was the beginning of the  whole miserable affair. I wondered  whether his wife was really dead after  -all, and when Dr. Wharles said something about her, I asked the question  ���������which unluckily put this wicked plot into his head!" ,  "I can't understand how you, Mrs.  Finch, could evor have lent yourself to  such a business," said Mr. Capper, very  -sternly.  She burst into tears again.  "You don't know how ashamed of myself I felt over it," sire said, with her  head bent down, wiping her eyes. "I  was over-persuaded; my sister and her  husband were in fear of nothing less than  ruin: my mother was not well, and I  liadn't money enough to get her the little luxuries she likes. And so, arid so���������  when the doctor urged and coaxed, and  even threatened, 1���������1���������gave way, and  came here, and���������and passed myself oil  as Lottie."  "But you tried to get into his room!  a puzzled face, "how did you manage to  pass yourself off to him as your sister?  You are not very like her, and���������and,  why, surely you were with me all the  time!"  Mrs. Finch hung her head.  "'It was my mother���������you know she is  very like Lotlie���������she pretended to be  she. And in the darkoned room, where  you couldn't see how-much older she was,  and with some of the hair poor Lottie  used to wear peeping out from under her  cap, I myself thought she looked wonderfully, horribly like her!"  "Oh, trickery, trickery, thy name is  woman 1" muttered Mr. Capper. "There,  go away, if you like. I don't suppose Sir  Astley will be particularly anxious to  see either of you!"  But Norma stopped her.  "I think you'd better see him," she  said quietly. "He may have sorrre _ques-  tions to ask, and you owe it to hint, as  1 think you'll admit, Ho give him all the  poor satisfaction you can. I don't think  you need hc afraid of liis not treating  you even more generously than you have  any right to expect."  "Very well," said'Mrs. Finch, who was  completely broken, very contrite, shy  and miserable.   "I'll go upstairs and see  -An^������lhe4r'^  have been found out!" said Norma. do?-R nnd >va,t wherever you tell rae to."  Mrs. Finch looked up,  "I knew very well you'd never let me  see him," she retorted. "I only pretended to.want to go in,-because, if'I hadn't,  you'd have thought there was something  wrong."  "Well, if the plot wasn't of your devising, you took very nicely to deception!" remarked Mr. Cupper, dryly.  She made a reckless gesture with her  right hand.  ���������'Since it had to be done, it wns ns  well to do it thoroughly," she said. "And,  I suppose there's deceit in the blood of  all the family. One thing I must tell  ���������you, though"-���������and she turned earnestly  ���������to orma���������"I very nearly broke down  and confessed everything when you took  -me into your room and Were so kind to  ���������me. If you hadn't been called away you  would have known everything in another five, minutes."  Norma sighed. It all seemed like a  ���������nightmare, that she had gone through,  ind she was trying to understand that  -���������he was now wide awake.  "And the letter," she asked suddenly,  "the letter that Astley received, and was  ���������lure was written by your sister, was Mint  1   forgery?''  "No," said Mrs. Finch. "It was not.  'When the idea of making up this story  came into Frank Wharlcs' Trend, yoii  remember that he went to 'Leamington,  as lie said to find out the truth?"  "Yes."  "Well, what he really wanted was to  ���������see us, especially nry mother, and to  make sure of having n good, 3orrnd story,  ithat had no weak points. And he rmii-  mrrged among the things Lottie had left'  behind, 'her desk, and lim- cupboards, mul  he found this old letter, one of the  (cores.she used to write and then never  lend.   If you remember, it said just this:  "Wflrj-oir-rorgri-n mo for my u.ecuitT*r'  "Yes, I rcmomber."  "Woll, she inennt deceit of Another  kind, something Unit could have been  proved against her."  "What n mass of trickery I" cried Mr.  ���������Capper impatiently.  Norma, ant silent, chilled wilh horror  and disgust in the midst of the relief she  isjl.  She went quickly past them, and ran  upstairs.  "Do you think wc shall ever see her  again? Or will she steal away before he  comes?" asked Norma.  The lawyer shrugged his shoulders as  he drew on his gloves.  "Impossible to say," he said. "Could  anyone predict with certainty anything  those wretched  women  would  do ?"  "Do you know," whispered Norma as  she accompanied him to tlie door, "I feel  rather sorry for her, just as I did before,  when I thought she was���������the other woman. She seems so unhappy, so miserably, horribly ashamed!"  "So she ought to he," retorted Mr.  Capper quite fiercely, as he started in  search of Astley.  Norma tried to sit still in the drawing-room until they came back; but she  found it: an impossible feiit. Wild  thoughts, hopes, fancies, danced in her  brain. Bhe could not believe her good  fortune, and was forced to torment herself by imagining that Astley had grown  tired of her, that he would rather have  had Lady.Myfanwy for a wife than the  wayward, wicked little girl whose:life he  had saved..'.���������.������������������������������������*  \And then, while she was still wandering 'up and: down, up and down, listening with pained ears.*������������������' to Mrs. Finch's  eighs as she sat in the library, ready'to  rush out and make confession, there was  a tap at the window, and Astley, trembling, pale indeed, but with bright eyes  and a different look on .his face from  tho hopeless expression he had recently  worn, demanded admission.  Norma (lew to shirt tire inner door,  *lrich she had left open, listening for his  m rg, believing that ho would come in by  llio portico entrance.  Mr. Cupper hud discreetly left the  fcronet to come across lire. Inwn by hirn-  ���������Jcif; nnd the next, moment Norma unfastened* the window, nnd husband and  wife were in each ot hoi's arms.  "My wifo, my wife at Iastl Didn't I  tell you it would conic true?" murmured Ire into her ear*.  "Oh, Astley, is it line? Can you believe it? Do you love rrre? Aren't you  *i*-od of me?   Oh, it's too much, it's too  much joy!"  But the young baronet had not many  minutes to spare at that time for his  newly-found wife. There was another  sentiment, a less tender one, in his heart.  The resentment which, in the woman,  was instantly swallowed up in happiness,  burned high  in  his  breast against  tha  two women who had so readily joined  the scoundrelly doctor in the conspiracy  against him.  He went straight to the library, on  hearing that Mrs. Finch was there, not  apparently heeding Norma's prayer that  he would not be harsh. But she need  not have been afraid. Fmmeline Finch  was so abjectly miserable that it was  impossible for a kind-hearted man to do  anything but let her off easily: and the  end of it was, that though he bade her  follow her mother out of the house, and  never come there again, he promised  them a small allowance to free them  from the monetary troubles which beset  them.  "And you were a very silly woman,"  he added by way of postscript, as she left  the house, "not to apply to me at Oxford  boldly, and save all this horror."  Then he wont back, and as the two sat  together by the fire, too solemnly happy  to talk much, the door opened, and  there burst in upon them not only Mr.  Capper, but Jack Wyersdale and Miss  Brown, and Lady Myfanwy.  "You've got to invite us to dinner,  Lndy Darwcn, and let us drink your  health in the most solemn manner!"  cried Jack, who' was crazy with delight  at the news which Mr. Capper had imparted on meeting them returning from  a drive.  "Why, you ought not to be glad, you  know," said Norma, mischievously to  him, in an undertone, while the others  talked. "You seem to forget that you  gave me to understand that you were  desperately in love with me yourself."  "Ah, well, so I was, so I was," said  Jack, with a boisterous, boyish laugh.  "That is, I was as long as I thought I  had a chance. But I'm not one of those  fellows who can sit and sigh for a woman who won't have anj'tlung to say to  them," he added with a man-of-the-  world air. "So I say honestly, I'm not  jealous of Astley, not a bit."     .,  "And you'll marry Miss Brown, and  live happy ever after," suggested Norma,  laughing.  "Well, perhaps I shall. I think  I might do worse. She's a very decent  sort of girl���������for an American!" 6aid  Jack loftily, as ho twirled���������nothing, and  tried to persuade himself that it was a  moustache.  Even Lady Myfanwy was nice. She  had indeed taken a fancy to Astley, and  would not have been sorry to console  herself and him, if circumstances had  permitted it. But, now that there was  no doubt he was happy in the safe possession of a wife with whom he seemed  thoroughly content, there was nothing  left but to make the best of it, and to  accept the inevitable in the shape of a  new and amiable neighbor, with a good  grace.  The young people positively refused to  go-back, home to dinner, although they  were warned that no preparations had  ���������been made for anybody. So' after a little waiting, and much tribulation on the  part of the housekeeper, some sort of repast was spread for them all, and Jack  made a speech at what he persisted in  calling the wedding breakfast, although  it was pointed out to 'him that there was  no breakfast and that the wedding was  an old affair.  It was all the same to him. He  thought that he shone as a speech-maker' and he was eloquent in the extreme.  And they all had a pleasant' evening,  clouded from time to time by certain uncanny recollections ,-of the past, of the  tragedy whicli had so recently taken  place, and of the further tragedy that  was to come.  It ,came sooner than thej' expected.  Dr. Wliarles was arrested at Liverpool,  as he and his wife were about to sail  for America. But the wily doctor escaped the gallows. Probably he had  been prepared for some sueh contretemps as this. For he had not been in  the hands of the police ten minutes before he contrived to swallow poison, and  in.' half an hour he was dead, in spite of  every effort which was conscientiously  made  to save him.  Mrs. Wharles disappeared from the  sight of her mother nnd sister, and no  one in Blackdale ever knew what became  of ber.  Poor Ned Raggett, though not exactly half-witted, never entirely recovered  his normal wits after a relapse occasioned by the excitement of the adjourned  inquest. He was taken on at Tho  Haigh for such light work as he cared  to do, and remained for many years the  one sad reminder of a hideous tragedy.  Astley arid his wife lived a very quiet  life, ns if they never quite recovered tho  "youtbful-zest~of"life~a^  those dreadful weeks laid upon tlrem.  But they were happy, even happier than  gayer couples, and Norma's gentle manners endeared her to her husband's,tenants and friends, as much as her earnest efforts to make him as happy as  mortal could be  endeared her to him.  And when, five years later, thej' were  present at the wedding of Jack (now  {���������town into "Reginald") Wyersdale and  Sadie Brown, the best wish anybody  could give, the young people was that  they should be ns hippy and devoted a  couple as the baronet and his wife, who  had made their way to.happiness through  such a veritable sea of troubles..

CHAl'TKIl I.  was many years ago���������before this  era of steam, telegraph and electrical  and mechanical development in fact,  just previous to that very queer war  of 1S12���������that lu a quaint old Dutch-  built village of southern Hew York, lying not far from Hudson's noble river,  there was living one Jacobus Bruyn, a  substantial farmer, of the purest Dutcji  lineage.  On a beautiful sunny fall afternoon  farmer iiruyn was sitting on the front  porch of his tine old Dutch farm-house,  lolling at ease in his great chair, and  smoking his long, clay pipe with an expression of perfect contentment resting  In his stolid features. He could well  afford to take his ease. His broad acres  of fat valley land had borne unusually  abundant harvests, .and his capacious  farm buildings were filled to overflowing. As he sat and allowed the wreaths  of blue smoke to curl up about his  swarthy, honest face, ho was listening  With satisfaction to thc beating of tho  flails of his threshers in the great red  barn not many rods distant.  The house of farmer iiruyn was built  on the substantial, comfortable style of  thc   well-to-do   Dutch   burghers  of   the  colonial period of New York history, it  was a large stone building, whose heavy  walls had been laid by  those who  evidently intended them  to  last lor generations.    The great  roof  mounted  up  to a high peak, and sloped nearly to the.  ground in the rear.   The numerous windows, wilh their many little green panes  of glass,  hinted  of  light and  cheerfulness within.   Everything about the place  was neat and orderly.    Along the garden fence, at the end of the low krt.lt.n,  was a bench, on which a row of shining milk-pans were sunning themselves.  In-the rear a tall, sloping churning machine hinted at "one of the domestic occupations of the'place.    The yard was  not  particularly  spacious,   but   showed  the supervision of sonic one with a love  for  order  and  beauty    in  clumps    of  shrubbery    and  beds  of  late, blooming  llowers.    It was  evident  who  was  the  presiding spirit  of    this    horticultural  display, for a young' maiden was wandering among the flower beds, dallying  with  the  plants  ln  a  patronizing  way  that declared more plainly  than words  the deep interest of affection and guardianship..   This was Rosa, farmer Bruyn's  only daughter,  whose  age,   it  was  apparent from her looks, could not be far  from eighteen.   Moving gracefully about  under the soft light of the clear autumn  sky,  her plain,  neat  house-dress    contrasting with thc brilliant verdure about  tier, the young girl presented a charming object to the eye���������and so thought  farmer Uruyn, as he watched her from  his seat on the porch.    Her ligure was  plumb and comely,  although  perhaps a  trifle under size, and perfect health was  indicated in the full, graceful curves of  ier form, the rosy bloom uprn her checks  ind the liquid clearness of her sott grey  eyes.    A  wealth  of  rich    brown    hair  liung  about  her  shoulders    In  natural  ringlets, unconiincd and untied, free to  the  kisses  of the sun  and  the toyings  of thc gentle zephyrs.   No fairy creature  was Rosa Bruyn, but a substantial bodily  presence,   who  might   have  sat   for  Vie Madonna of some old Flemish pnirrt-  *cr.   The form, features and movements  all Indicated a pure,  healthy,  womanly  nature,   capable   perhaps   of   great   devotion and tendenness, but one not lilco-  Iv to succumb to any trial or duty  of  life.  The house of farmer Uruyn sat some  distance back from the read. Several  tall poplar trees throw their���������'" shade  along the roadway in front, and, at  the upper edge of the yard,'some.clumps  of--shrubberj���������actc-(l-n3-(i~partinl=scrccii*-  to a lane that led to the outbuildings  in the rear of the house. The rond in  front wound down a gradual hill and  down the hill the tail form of it young  man could be seen drawing ���������near. Kosn'.-i  wandering gaze had detected his approach, and, with a Buddcn Hush, she  irew slowly away from her position  irnong the (lower beds, and proceeded,  is if inadvertently, up to the lane fence  tmong the shrubbery. Iter movements  were evidently observed by' tiro young  aian, for he entered the lane, and, drawing near, placed his.hand on the fouee,  gave a light spring, nnd bounded over,  in a moment he hnd taken the blushing maiden In his arms, and pressed n  iiss upon her brow .with all the ardor  )f an accepted lover. .-���������.*  ��������� "Freei���������why, Claude, what can you  mean? One might suppose that you  rejoiced that your aunt is worse���������perhaps upon the brink of the grave."  A peculiar shadow passed over tho  young man's face.  "Do you think so kindly of me,  Rosa?" he asked. "Or���������but, no; you  read my feelings, and *-ou misinterpret  them. Suppose aunt should die���������can I  help it? I shall sorrow for her as sincerely as anybody; but I must own that  there is a sense of freedom in the  thought of my being my own master  and coming into my fortune. What  Is the use of denying or concealing it?  I do not wish her dead; but I cannot  deny that the grief I should feel ls  tempered by the thought of the scope  that will be opened to my hopes and  ambition. There, there, little one���������don't  look so grave. Remember, I have not  been brought up to be sensitive. Aunt  has not wasted any tenderness upon  me, although I know she loves me  well."  "But, Claude, think how it would  grieve her to the soul to dream for a  moment that you could count up the  gain her death 'would be to you."  * "But she will not dream It, little  monltress. No act or word of * mine  shall add a pang to her dying hours. I  shall do all and be all that duty and  affection require. But can I help my  natural feelings? I am not an angel ln  human guise, like yourself, Rosa. I  profess only one virtue���������a desire to be  honest, and not to hide my real feelings  for mere appearance's sake. It is not  In my nature to play the hypocrite. I  shall feel very badly if aunt dies. She  has always been kind to me���������In her  way��������� and I truly believe has loved me  .with her whole heart. But it is only  Just to remember that her way has always been a strange one, and that her  guardianship has deprived me of .the  rights and privileges In a large measure to which I was born. A strange,  gloomy, eccentric woman, fixed in hep  Ideas and Immovable in her' resolves,  no one can tell the tyranny her government has exercised over me. And, by  a strange fate, I have no escape from  tyranny so long as she lives except at  the peril of my fortune. Look at It!���������  with all her wealth, her farms, her  boats, her ferries, her ��������� mills (there is  an immense fortune stowed up somewhere.' and I the prospective heir), what  pleasure or privilege has been mine in  life that the veriest country lad ln the  region could not enjoy? Aunt's love of  hoarding has run away with her Judgment till her household has been kept  as If we were predestined victims ot  poverty. Rolff House has been abandoned to decay. As for me, the eccentric whim of my father has made me  more subject to her than the veriest  servant���������dictated "to ln my * education,  curbed ln every natural wish and am  vote my time to Improving myself, so  that I may become more worthy of  your love. I can't stay here, ln this  dismal little village, to rust and fret  myself to death. I must cultivate my  talents. I desire to become a great  painter. As soon as I am in a position  to carry out my plans, I will tell you  all my dreams, and I am sure you will  sympathize with me. and take delight  In my purpose to achieve talent and  fame. It will not be so long that I  will be separated from you; and we are  young, Rosa, and can bear up under  separation, and wait patiently for the  happiness that will be ours when I return with some part of my ambition  achieved to claim you as my bride."  The eyes of Rosa Uruyn lit up for a  moment, but she dropped them quickly  to the ground, and was silent. At last  she spoke quietly:  "I hope your aunt will get well soon,  Claude."  The young man bit his Up and turned  his face Impatiently* away.  But his anger was only momentary.  Turning his gaze back to the fair, grave  young face before him, an expression of  deep tenderness took possession of his  handsome countenance.  "Tou do well to .reprove me, Rosa."  he said. "Yes, I, too, hope aunt will  get well, and live many years. Then  all my fine plans will be scattered to  the winds, and I shall be sure of nothing���������not even of you."  "But you know, Claude, we are oo  young, yet ��������� and ��������� and father may  change his mind when you settle down  to steady habits. He thinks you are  wild and reckless."  "I see, Rosa," said the young man,  with a return of the bitterness of his  tone, "that even in your estimation to  aspire to any life but that of a plodding  money-getter ls to be wild and reckless,"  "No, no, Claude," she exclaimed  hastily, "you know I do not think so.  But you would not have me offend  father?"  "No, my love and my light!" he exclaimed, with a. glow of enthusiasm,  "I would have you do nothing unbecoming your character as the purest and  best girl ln the world. Better that I  should suffer the wreck of every hope,  but I must not linger. Tour father  will begin to suspect something. Goodbye!"  And, with a tender caress, he turned  and, springing over the fence, disap*  peared as he had come.        *A.       --.  THEIR SILVER VVEDD.

(so let us  call the little old Dutch village), was a  wooden, clap-boarded building, with  three stories, a double-sloped roof, and  many windows. It was a somewhat  pretentious structure, and did a thriving business, for the village was on the  line of an Important mail and business  route, and the times were favorable to  travel and convlvall.y.  The, bar-room of I'.onk's Tavern, as  the hostlery was ca'led, was the great  meeting-place for the men-folk of the  vicinity. Here they -athered of an .evening, and smoked th***ir pipes, and drank  their flip or other decoctions, and told  stories, talked politics and retailed the  gossip of the vicinity.   .  It wis on the evening after the events  detailed in the last chapter. The candles were lighted ln the bar-room, and  the landlord was behind his bar answer.

Ringlets of fair,  flaxen hair escaped, from' beneath his  cap, and curled over a broad, ;white  brow. Clear, mirthful blue eyes lit up  a countenance in which the expression  of geniality was offset by a certain air  Bf over-confldence that almost Indicated  recklessness.  "And how's my little sweetheart?"  he asked, releasing her form from his  arms, and gazing upon her with undisguised admiration.  "I am well, Claude," she replied.  "Little need there ls to ask. And you  appear well, too. But how is your  aunt to-day?"  "Aunt? oh, she ls growing worse."  he replied. "The doctor told me since  dinner that she is failing slowly but  surely, and cannot possibly survive,  long.

An expression of gloom passed over  the young man's countenance.  "Tou Judge me severely, Rosa," h'e  said: "but I do not care for that. I do  not plead the propriety of my feelings,  but only that I cannot help them. Yel  why should I not gratify my ambition?  I am the son of a wea-lthy man; and In  Justice and right should bo undisputed  master of my father's estate. I do not  long for vulgar display and pleasure.

To the Krtuor of lhe IlEi:.ii.n:  Sill.���������On  Saturday   morning  last, a  number   of -gentlemen   waited   upon  Mayor   O'Brien   to   enquire if  the License Commissioners would alter their  position in regard to the license granted for   the  sale of   liquor during I be  sports on the athleta* grounds on Monday nnd Tuesday.    As a result of  this  interview   the   Mayor   stated that he  would call together the Commissioners  and  receive or  consider any petition  that,   might  he presented.    In view of  Ibis de;;ision  a petition requesting the  License Commissioners to rescind their  action was circulated.      In  the course  of the few hours at .the. disposal of the  parties  circulating  the  petition some  ' 131 names  were obtained representing  all classes of citizens.     The gentlemen  bearing the petition were most kindlyi  received and  recognized   the fact tbat  the.  town   was  with  them, and   with  . sufficient time, could easily have secur:  ed   ehe   names, of   two-thirds of   the  citizens.      At   S   o'clock   on Saturday  evening   a   deputation   composed    of  Revs.   O.   Ladnerand   W. C. Calder  with  Messrs.  Landmark,   Howson, T.  Graham   and  T. More attended at tbe  council   chamber   to present the petition   to   the   Commissioners.  -   They,  found instead a  meeting of the sports  committee  with   the   Mayor acting as  chairman.     Tho   Mayor     asked    the  deputation  if,.they had any communication   to  make."     As  the deputation  had   attended   with   the  intention of  presenting the  petition   to' the Commissioners  this  seemed  a little extraordinary.     In   fact  what was evident  to the members of the  deputation the  whole matter was subjected practically  to the decision of the sports committee,  A most, singular thing was witnessed :  the chief   magistrate of   the city and  chairman  of tlie License Commissioners abdicating   his   responsibility and  submitting   a   high inor.il question to  the decision of an unconstituted authority, and that, as far as could be seen,  prejudiced.     The Rev.   Mr. Ladner in  presenting   the   petition to the Mayor  as chairman   of   the License Commissioners   stated   briefly   the object and  aim of the petition, the large* number  of signatures, the  heartiness and sympathy  with  which  the bearers of the  petition  had  heen received, that fully  two-thirds  of the citizens would have  signed  had  there been time for such,  that,  it  was   the largest and most important   petition    ever    presented   to  ~~sTicinrcoiirt,"concluding"with_an~oar-"  nest request that the petition be granted.    The Mayor alter the petition with  signatures   having   been   read by the  city clerk submitted it to the consideration of the sports committee with the  remark that "I see in looking ovor this  list of names not inany'who have subscribed to the sports."   Uev. Jlr. Ladner   pointed   out  that while this in a  number of  eases Was true, yet many  had not been asked, also that some of  Iho   largest  comributors   were, represented amongst the signers.     This the  Mayor   admitted.     Hev.   Mr.  Calder  being asked  to speak said that at the  present   singe   he  had nothing lo say  when Mr. Wadman asked the question  was it not   better  to sell the liquor on  the grounds than have it sold in the  hush out  of  ginger   beer bottles, etc.  Mr.  Lindniark then spoke in favor of  the petition   and in.the course of   his  remarks   pointed   out   that there was  sufficient   law  to prevent the disposal  of   liquor in the bush.     None of   the  other   members    of   the    deputation  speaking the opinion of several of the  sports committee was   asked.   There  seemed   to   be  some hesitancy on the  part of the gentlemen when one of the  members  proposed   that   it would be  better for the deputation to retire so  that the sports committee could speak  more freely.    In this the Mayor iicqiii-  eseed   with   the   statement   that  the  matter   iv.6uld   be   discussed   and the  decision   arrived   at .submitted to the  commissioners,   the   delegation .'being  asked to retire.   "Before doing so Rev.  Air-.   Calder   risked   the Mayor if they  should have air opportunity of appearing before the commissioners and be  said   no.      Mi,   Calder then iu a brief  speech reviewed the.-.situation answering Home of Ure arguments advanced  Iiy members of tho sports committee,  lie stated that there was no relationship   between   the  selling   of   liquor  surreptitiously nnd that under license.  The one  could  lie met by the law, tho  othor   was   legalizing  n   wrong.    He  pointed out that if Mr, Liuiyhton was I w* J  already   under  expense   through the  granting   of   the   license, if   that was  withdrawn the members of the deputation would see him reimbursed for any  loss.      Mr. Calder asked the question,  even if Mi'.   Laughton would be out of  pocket what was his loss compared to  the   injury   done onr   young men and  boys by this moral wrong.     He pointed out that if it  had  been thought for  an instant  that* a body of merlin this  community wonld have asked for such  a   thing   or   that   a   responsible body  would h,i.ve granted this a stand would  havo been taken to  prevent the granting   of   the   license.      Air.   Calder remarked that there was no   antagonism  between the delegation and legitimate  sports.     In this matter the committee  had their entire  good will.    The delegation   on   request   then retired.    To  this  hour, beyond   the fact of the sale  of liquor on   the  grounds, the deputation have had   no notice of  the ollicial  action of  the  License Conniiissioii.irs.  In   placing   this statement before tin;  public we do so  in the interest of   the  moral welfare of this city and with the  hope   thai,   there   will   be such air expression   of   opinion   as  to make any  such   experience for the future impossible.

In the newly published "Biography of  Bret Harte" not the least interesting inci(lent_ narrated is the revolt  of tho printer of the "Overland  Monthly" against the appalling profanity  of the editor in not merely accepting, bat  in contributing to its second number,  this blasphemous story. Bret Harte, as  the editor of the new magazine, feeling  that it ought to have distinctively Cali-  fornian features, sent the manuscript of  "The Luck of Roaring Camp" to the  printer. The printer, little suspecting  how ���������monstrous was tho birth ho was  asked to assist, passed it on to his staff,  who, mechanically, let us hope, set up  the type. Tlie proofreader, a young lady,  was, therefore, the flrst, most unfortunately, to rend, or to begin to read, the  blasphemous production. When she had  got over lire first shock, sho hurried to  the printer, a church lncwibor, even a*  deacon, and complained to Win of the  outrage to which she hnd been subjected.  He, hardly believing his ears, or even his  eyes, hastened to the publisher, and laid  before him the proofs lie should have sent  to the author and editor. Thus it happened that the editor was summoned to  account to the printer for his misdeeds���������  a delightful Gitbortian inversion.  "The printer, instead of -returning the  proofs to the editor and author, submitted them to the publisher with tihe emphatic declaration that the matter thereof was so indecent, irreligious and im-  firoper that his proofreader���������a young  ady���������had been with difficulty induced to  continue its perusal, and that he, as a  friend of the publisher and a well-wisher  of the magazine, was impelled to present  to him personally this shameless evidence  of the manner in whicli the editor was  imperilling the future of that eater-  prise."  But what, you ask, so horrified the  young person? Why simply the scene  whore Kentuek, after reverently fondling  the ininnt, said: "ITc wrnstled with my  finjier, the d d little cuss."  When tslie came to -this a.ppalling passage, tlie proofreader, like Franccsca,  "read no more that day." Dear old  James Payn used to relate that in private letters to Ure editor of an American (magazine to which'-Hie contributed,  housed to send the current club stories,  which were perliaps more shocking even  than this exitreict from "The Luck of  Roaring Co.mp;" it was not, however, till  he 'had supplied regularly for seven years  these club delicacies that bis, correspondent wrote nit last to inform lrim that  she was a lndy! "I give you my word,"  added Payn, "I blush even now in  bed When I think of her seven years'  long-suffering!" But to return to the  criticism of 'the .prudish proofreader, who  recalls Moliere's satire on "people whose  ears are more chaste than all the rest of  their bodies," Bret,Harte's answer to it  in his defence of his ha'bit of holding up  to admiration "a man of one. virtue and  a -thousand crimes" is most effective. 'He  wrote:  "Tlie author has been repeatedly cautioned, kindly and unkindly, intelligently and unintclligently, against his alleged tendency to confuse recognized  standards of monriity by extenuating  lives of recklessness, arrd often criminality', witli a single solitary virtue.

The Mother-in-Law.  Very little is known of the origin of  this species, writes Dorothy Dix in hen  "Studies in Natural HisioVy." Many  people who have had opportunity of  studying it at close range beli**vc  that the first one was the original  Serpent in Eden that pul Eve up  to making trouble for Adam, nnd  that its descendants aro still at  work breaking up Domestic Paradises.  In confirmation of this theory, which is  beld by many men of experience, it is  pointed out that the Mother-in-Law is  generally the First Aid to the Divorced,  and that in families where none is kept  ���������tSic wife generally lives arrd dies without  eating of the apple of knowledge, and  finding out that she is married to a.  Bruto and is a Poor, Persecuted Angel.  Generally speaking, the Motlrcr-irr-Liiw  fa indigenous to Europe and America,  only a few scattering ones, and those of  a. feeble character, being found in Asia,  and none at all in Africa, whicli account*  for the large immigration of recent years  to the latter country.  Naturalists hnve no trouble in placing  the Mother-in-Law among the predatory  and man-devouring animals, but much  difficulty has arisen iir settling the exact  class to which it belongs, some students  contending that because of its mania for  putting its finger in everybody's pie it  pertains to the genus femiuis intermod-  lis, while others hold that its arbitrary  temper and determination to rule the  ���������xoost indicate that it is a species of the  genus feminis henoeckus. An eminent  authority, however, advances the opinion that while both of these theories are  true, they do not go far enough, and  that the Mother-in-Law is, perhaps, thc  finest specimen extant of the genus feminis stirup troublibus.  In appearance this strange animal is  what is described as h-.ird-featured, being  particularly noticeable for the set of its  jaw aiid the fact that it presents, from  every aspect, an unyielding appearance.  It is generally of a black color, and it  bristles.with bundles as a porcupine does  with quills. Its voice is also of a peculiarly grating and harsh quality, and  has the extraordinary power .of affecting men's nerves to thc extent of driving them to drink.  The chief characteristic of the Mother-  in-Law is its inability to let people alone.  It can no more see a man and Iris wife  happily going their own way in pence  without wanting to throw a bomb in  between tliein, than a dog can see a  horse grazing in a. meadow without snapping at its heels. This is not intentional  mischief. It is just the nature of the  beast, and it can't help it. It is built  that way, with an insatiable mania for  ���������butting into affairs where it is not wanted. No man can hope to run his house.  or play anything but second fiddle, who  keeps a Mother-m-Luw on the premises.  As may be supposed, knowing the danger to which they will be exposed, and  seeing the fell fate that,-lias befallen  thedr friends, no man desires to -have  such -a household pet, but so crafty and  foxy is the Mothcr-iu-Law that it como**  upon him unawares, and the first thing  he knows one of these creatures is inalienably attached to his establishment.  A great many men arc able by strenuous  labor to keep the wolf from the door,  .but comparatively few are ever able to  fight off a Mother-in-Law..  Let" it not be thought, however, that  tlris bloodthirsty animal has been made  in vain. Not without reason is it well  called the Watch Dog of Monogamy, for  no man 'has such a horror of polygamy  as One who bus a Mother-in-Law.  ft Scientific Explanation.  A woodsman, said the New. York  "Sun," was one day chopping a tree over-  hanging a stream, and, pausing in his  work to flirt with a passing milkmaid,  ae dropped his axe into the river.  The woodsman. sat down comfortably  -������d proceeded to bemoan his fate. Merely, ���������hearing his lamentations, appeared  before him, and upon being informed-of  the'loss of the axe, he at orfce dived  Into the water and brought up a golden  Hatchet.  "Is that yours?" asked Mercury.',.,..  "No,"   replied   the  man.   ^  Mercury thereupon plunged unto the  water for a second "time and brought up  i silver hatchet Again the man denied  that the axe was his.  Por the third time Mercury disap-  neared under the water, and at' last  brought up the veiy axe that the man  Bad lost, which the woodsman eagerly  jlaimedas 'his.'  The god, being pleased:with the man's  lonesty, presented him with the gold  "ind t^ilver''hatchets also. ,  The man 'told his friends, about "this  tnd''the Mercurial Gold and Silver Company was at once organized with a. capital of a billion or so.

The minister called at a certain Oana-,  dian home just after he had come to his.  new pastorate. The small boy was pres-'  ent long before Iris mother came downstairs to greet tlie dominie. Trying to  be cordial, the minister said, "How old  axe you, my little man?" "I'm five at*  home, six in school and three on. the  oars," was the delightful reply.  P. T. Barnum was a great practical  Joker. On one occasion he notified the  dealer from whom ho bought a large  amount of supplies that half the pepper  he sent bim was peas.

On April Fool's day, the audience at  an amateur dramatic performance in the  Naval Academy at Annapolis was oUivt-  led when one of the instructors nrude  hia appearance before the curtain about  the time the performance was to begin,  uid solemnly announced: "I wish to  make an announcement���������a very sad announcement. Under the circumstances it  scarcely seems fitting that the entertainment, should proceed. .Word has just  been received that one of the navy's vessels has gone down with all on board!"  A hush of horror followed this gravely  delivered speech, for most of those in the  Etudience were connected by close family  ties with the navy. "What was tlio  name of tlie vessel?" came a voice from'|  the rear of the hall. "The submarine  boat 'Holland,'" replied the instructor,  as he dodged and mode a hasty exit.  A correspondent of tlie London "Outlook" tells a story which he heard Lord  Dufferin relate of Sheridan Le Fanu:  Sheridan's father���������the Archbishop of  Meath���������-was a great .-stickler for punctuality, a regard his son did not share.  One morning young Sheridan, then about  eight years old, dc-scemled unusually late  for breakfast, and was met at the door  by his father, watch in hand. "Is this  right, sir; is this right?" demanded the  prelate in sitern tones. "I doii't know,  sir," replied Sheridan, looking at. the  watch and pretending to think Uie question applied to it and not to his conduct,  "but T rather think it's fast." For this  Impertinence young Sheridan was condemned to write an essay on "The Three  Ages of Man." Here is what he wrote:  "Theme are three ages of man: First���������  When he is engaged in planning every  conceivable mode of wickedness. This U  known aa the age/of innocence. Second  ���������When he is putting his nefarious plans  into operation. This is called the prime  of mamhood. Third���������When ho becomes  anxious about his soul uird turns to religion.   This is dotage."  Thomas A. Edison is of the opinion  that it was anger -tliat first* turned, him  toward inventing the incandescent light.  That was, of course, in tlie early days,  and Edison was then quite tlie inventor  that one reads of���������poor, enthusiastic,  never sleeping.' He lived in a small house,  Innocent of anything approaching a. laboratory; scientific apparatuses were In  every room, and all the money went for  experiments. Then, one day, come the  crisis in the guise of tlfe collector for  the gas company, lie had been to the  house often, but Edison, hardly heeding  his calls, had waved him away, saying,  ".Don't bother me." On this last call  the collector's instructions were peremptory, lie must turn off the gas. "But,  man," protested Mr. Edison, "1 can't stop  this experiment to-night. I'll pay the  bill, of com���������*. I didn't know about it.  I must"'finish tlris work with no interruption.". But the man was a gas collector and thc lights went out. , "That  night, as I sat helpless in the darkness,"  says tlie great inventor, "I swore a deep,  solemn ind far-reaching oath that I  would -Tut all the gas companies in the  world out of business. I haven't done  quite that, but I did the" best I could."  Spooks and Their Clothes.  * In a Berlin spiritualistic .trial that has  furnished much entertaining "copy" to  the newspapers, one of the witnesses testified to having seen the Reformer Zwin-  rii standing over the entranced melius*, and gesticulating iu harmony with her utterances. The witness  Ud not know, he told tho president,  when or where Zwingli lived, or who he  was, except that he was a Reformer; but  i* "recognized his features distinctly."  The "spook" was "a corpulent man' with!  a mass of hair," arrayed'in "a summer  jacket suit." This is quite the last get-  ap in which a contemporary and fellow-  laborer of Luther might bo expected to  present himself to a latter-day audience,  tuggests Henry Labouchere. One could  ts easily think of John the Baptist reappearing in a suit of dittoes. Perhaps after all it was only some Schmidt or  Schneider who died last year at Hamburg  or Frankfort.  But whether it was Schmidt, or Zw'rn-  (li, or John the Baptist, the summer  |acket suit raises a question which spiritualists of ii 11 schools ought to face frankly. I had a very interesting letter bearing upon it a fe* days ago. The writer  dealt with "spooks" or ghosts at large,  uid wanted to know where they get  their clothes. He pointed out that in all  ages they have appeared in chains that  cranked and silks that rustled, whereas  in the vast majority of crises they have  been buried in simple .winding-sheets.  Hamlet's father, for instance, was doubtless interred in the usual fashion, whereas there he was on the ramparts, armed  cap-a-pie. Even if you assume that tho  spirit might reconstruct some passable  semblance of his more or less decomposed  tleshly tenement, he could not borrow a  3*uit of armor which was probably at the  same time mounted on a stand, somewhere in the precincts "of the palace. The  same problem presents itself in the case  of all spooks. Do they manufacture a  now suit of ghostly clothing for each appearance in public? Or are there in the  spook world (this is my correspondent's  suggestion) second-hand clothing depots,  where a spirit desirous of materializing  can obtain at the shortest notice a gentlemanly outfit suitable to any epoch or  rank of life���������just as he could, when, living, at Nathan's or Alias's? The evidence  from Berlin about; Zwingli obviously supports the latter theory. The only plausible explanation, to my mind, of trie Ke-  fonmer's summer jacket suit, is that he  wanted a costume'in a hurry, and had  to take anything that would fit���������apparently something that had been worn last  at Margate or Monte Carlo. Having an  insatiable thirst for occult knowledge, I  should like to know more about this.  It was W. D. Howells.

,.~ .������ -....���....��� gag Herald Supplement  REVELSTOKE HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17,  1-303.  MUSIC, SONG  AND SPEEGHES  Proved a Splendid Programme  at the First Public Meeting  of the Junior Conservative  Club.  Despite many counter attractions  the opening of the Junior Conservative (Jlub on Monday evening was a  threat success. The chair was occupied  by President A. Johnson who, in a few  well chosen words, explained the  ���������'���������.'��������� objects of the club and the educational  effect it would have when its work got  properly started. He also referred to  tlie duties of the young men iu the  coming campaign and the great influence they would exert if they only  stood together. (Applause.) ��������� The  chairman then called upon Mr. J. ������1  Taylor who gave "What a ridiculous  thing" in lirst class style convulsing  the audience with laughter.  Mr. O'Brien was next on the pro-  gramiue, aud, in a short speech outlined t he progress of the Conservative  party under the late Sir John A. MacDonald. Ue also spoke of the necessity  for union stating that he had cast his  first Conservative vote -12 years ago  and was still with the grand old party  (cheers). Referring to the duties of  the electors he said they should be  careful whom they sent to the Legislature, they should be men of integrity  and men to be trusted. Their course  in the House should be carefully  watched, and, if they proved recreant  to the trust imposed upon them their  constituents should * say, when they  came back for re-election, "No sir,  you have not done what is right and  we will choose someone else." (Applause.) Mr. O'Brien's speech was  punctuated all through' with good  stories and witty sayings which we  regret pressure on our space prevents  11s reproducing.'  Mr.   J.   Theo  Wilson   next 'gave a  recitation,   "Thc Actor's Story"  and  Mr.  A.  G.  Crick a .mouth organ solo,  lioth of which, were very well received.  Mr. Thomas' Taylor was then called  upon and received round after round  of applause  on rising to deliver his  address.   He prefaced his remarks by  saying that he did not intend to touch  on   local   politics as   there   would be  other occasions for so doing but wished, to congratulate the young men on  their new organization which augured  T. well for the success of the Conservative party. ���������   (Applause.)    And it was  a  party  of   which any body of men  might   well   be-proud.   'The late Sir  John   A.   Macdonald was the greatest  statesman. Canada  ever  saw and although  we had a few fathers af  Confederation still with us his name would  always   he  honoured as its founder.  (Cheers.)   The Conservative party had  always   stood  for   the   rights of  the  people iind would always continue to  ������������������ioso.-^The.audiencejvould remember  how George  Brown, one of the standard*-Irearers   of  Liberalism  in   early  times, had caused his printers on the  "Globe" to be  imprisoned for forming  a union, and for all the Liberal party  did they might have been in gaol yet.  The Mackenzie government did nothing  to  relieve  them   and it was not  until Sir John A. Macdonald obtained  the reins  of  office that working men  were permitted  to  band themselves  together in those trades unions which  were  so   influential  and   flourishing  today.     (Cheers.)     But although Sir  John had passed away his mantle had  fallen on worthy shoulders in the person of R. L. Borden the present leader  of  the  Opposition  at Ottawa.   And  there  were other rising men in the*  Conservative ranks who would come  to the front arid stand before the people as supporters of good government.  One of these was the present premier,  Hon. Richard McBride, (cheers,) a man  of ability, a man of resourcefulness, a  man of honesty and British Columbia's  favorite Hon. (Applause.) He. the  speaker, was glad to see that at last  the era of personal politics was over  and party lines for the first time introduced in the Province. The people  now had a chance to declare for or  against the Conservative party which  he was sure would be sustained on  October 3rd. (Hear. Hear.) The  time was short but the party was well  organized and he was sure that, with  the assistance of the young men, victory would come in this riding and  also' in practically all the others.  (Loud and prolonged cheers.)  After the* enthusiasm 'which Mr.  Taylor's speech elicited had subsided,  the chairman declared an intermission  of; five minutes for social intercourse  which was taken up by those present  becoming better acquainted with each  other.. .During the interval Mr. W.'A.  Smythe played some acceptable selections on the piano which helped the  thing along immensely.  Mr. Kruru was called upon to open  the second part of tbe programme  with a piano solo, and his playing  proved a surprise* to all present. He  treated the audience firstly to a Swedish dance, mainly in the upper register  and, in response to a most enthusiastic  encore, played a. fantasia which, if we  remember rightly, is an early composition of Greig's.  Mr. James Taylor then rendered  the intermezzo from "Ca'valeria Kusti-  cana"in his usual finished manner and  was most heartily applauded. Realizing the lateness of the hour, however,  he did not respond to the cries of  "encore."        _ ,  Mr. Ed. Adairwasthen called.upon  and delivered a most able lighting  speech. He. first paid "a graceful  tribute to Mr. O'Brien who was wearing a medal which showed they had  fought side by side at Ridgeway in  1880. (Cheers). He also expressed his  pleasure at lieing called . upon to  address the Juuior' Conservative Club,  .which he felt sure was an institution  that would carry great weight not  only at the present but at all forthcoming elections. He endorsed the  remarks made by Mr. .Taylor as to the  inception and' progress of the great  Conservative party and related a few  instances from his own experience as  to the depression under Liberal rule  when the best class of woodsmen in  Ontario were compelled to work for  $12 per month and others for nine.  At that time working-men had gone to  Alexander Mackenzie and implored  him to do something for them' but he  had refused. They besought Sir John  A. Macdonald to assist them and he  used all his force to compel the  government to build public works to  relieve .the distress Sir John. said,  "Believe you have a great; country  believe in its future and build ahead of  population" (cheers). But Mackenzie  had refused and it was not until 1879  when the electors had a chance to put  Sir John in power that the stagnation  was removed through the introduction  of the National policy which had  made Canada what it is today.  (Applause.V-The Liberals had obtained  power in 1890 and the country had .remained prosperous. But why? "'��������������������������� Because they had proved false to every  pledge they made before elections, because they had repudiated free trade  upon which they were elected and  continued the tariff policy enunciated  by the Conservatives (cheers). Mr.  Adair then dwelt shortly upon local  matters pointing out the difference  between the local career of Mr. Taylor  and Mr. Kellie and concluded by  predicting an overwhelming victory  for the present government at the  polls.  Messrs. Taylor and Allum then gave  the duett, "Larboard Watch", in  excellent style and, in response to an  unanimous encore, "All's Well".  Mr. W. W. Poster then made a few  remarks dealing with the organization  of the club and emphasized tbe value  of its work by a story of a man in  Vancouver whose  wife had    twins.  The happy father wired home "Have  twins, more tomorrow"." This was  like the Junior Conservative Club,  there would surely be more tomorrow.  (Laughter and applause.)  Mr. Humphries, who was in splendid voice, sang a song in the Yorkshire  dialect which was voiciferously  applauded. "Encore" was called all  over the hull, hut as the closing hour  had arrived whs not responded to.  Mr. Johnson then concluded / the  evening by a few further remarks  and announced that all would be welcome at the next session of the Club  to be held on Friday evening. Three  cheers and a tiger for Tom Taylor and  the National Anthem concluded the  most successful public inauguration of  the Junior Conservative Club.  At the next meeting, tomorrow  evening, it is expected that Messrs.  Smythe, Melville, Murphy, Taylor  and Allum will be among the musical  contributors and Mr. J. Theo. Wilson  and others deliver short speeches on  provincial politics.  St******/*/****************  Polling Places.  Returning   officer  G.   T.

That this convention reaffirms tho policy of  the party in matters of provincial roads and trails;  the ownership and control; of railways ��������� and the  development of' the agricultural. resources of. the  province as laid 'down in the platform adopted in  October, 1899, which is as follows:  "To actively aid in the construction of trails  throughout the undeveloped portions of the province and the building of provincial trunk roads of  public necessity.  ������������������To adopt the principle of government ownership of railways in bo far as the circumstances of  the province will admit, and the adoption of the  principle that no bonus should be granted to any  railway company, which does not: give the govern-'  ment of the province control of rates over lines  bonused, together with the option of purchase.

This subject is oi interest at all.times  and touches well-nigh everyone.  Hardly any there arc but have buried  their dead; hardly any but have, shut  aS from the daily activities of their  souls, a consecrated void; hardly any  but at times are earnestly asking,  "Shall we see these dear absent ones  ���������gain, and will there be some bond of  recognition between tis?"  Now on this question we could  hardly expect thc Word of. CJod to say  much. God would occupy us here with  duty rather than with speculation, how  ���������ver tender and sacred. Not whal  huaven is, but how to get to heaven.  b the great problem before us. Wc  are given little of description, much of  direction. No map of that golden city  Is provided, but on the irarrow road  the cross ever and anon is set up as  a guidepost to point thc way. But although tlie burden of inspiration has  to do with the privileges and the requirements of this world, it gives us  no empty consolation with reference  to them who are fallen asleep. In thc  first place, there is that pervading  undertone which we detect everywhere.  We cannot explain it, we cannot point  it out; but somehow, open the Bible  where we may, it "comforts us concerning our brtfthcr."  But, again, the recognition of those  we have known on earth is implied in  many of the fundamental declarations  of God's Word. We are to be held accountable, for instance, for our dealings with those around us. Can it.  then, be possible that we are not to  know those whom we have influenced  for good or ill?  Perhaps, however, the strongest ol  the indirect teachings of the Bible 011  this point is to be found in those  ���������umberless similitudes . which describe  our state, here and hereafter, as one  cf association. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a net cist into the sea and  enclosing a 'great multitude", of fishes.  It is like a supper furnished with  guests. It is a fellowship, a communion, a family, a'������������������ household.*'Surely,  knit together by such ties,'the,members  of that kingdom must know each  other.  But we are not left to mere inferences and implications. The Bible asserts directly the doctriire of mutual  recognition hereafter. "Many shall  come from the east anil from the west,  and shall sit down with Abraham and  Isaac and Jacob in thc Kingdom of  God." Of course, there would be no  significance in this statement if thc  patriarchs are not to be known as Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Again:  ..ye     -   -  _ Do -not abandon the old reliable varieties. Try .all thc novelties that are  brought out, .fer some cf them may  be excellent, but do not venture on  them until entirely satisfied of their  worth. It ;is not always that new  varieties are adapted to .all soils, climates -and conditions.  Fruit-growing is usually interesting  to the youag people of the-farm. It is  rather" neat; cheerful work, .and the income, especially irom orchards, increases rapidly with time aud attention.  Fruit-growers, as a class, are .often fortunate iu retaining &onie of -their children tb help in the business.  When the season of berries .ia over  collect all the crates and .berry .boxes  and store them away for next season's  use. The farm not only looks !bctt������r  for having the crates and boxes gathered from the field, but also indicates  a careful and thrifty farmer. There  were berry fields every winter where  boxes and crates are strewn in. confusion everywhere, and about the railroad stations are piled crates and boxes exposed to wind and rain. With  such management berries do not pay.  <��������������� #  J Fashion Notes.  <A��������� ^  White-linen and colored linen gowns are  ���������exceedin-jly smart this season, h-tit have  been so imitated In -cheap qualities and  mu-le with aueh .quantities of cheap embroideries ami lace tliat they have lost  the distinctive Individuality that gave  thetn such a eharm laet year, says Harper's Bazar. -The smart -towns and tlia  expensive ones now esee. however, exceedingly handsome.

Says  St.  Paul to the ! ^ s*d������  dl-rect hom the  *&-<**>  to  The Latest Machine Milker.  An improved milking machine is reported to be making some progress in  Australia. It is a modification of an  English machine, about three hundred  of which were in use in Victoria. After some months it was noticed that  the cows began to shrink.  One of the dairymen, a practical mechanic, put an inspection glass in the  rubber tube leading from the teats to  the can, when the mystery was solved.  In the English machine the four teat  cups unite at the bottom into one tub;,  which has to carry away all thc milk,  and through which, at the same time,  the vacuum pressure is applied to the  teats. Thc result of this arrangement  is that, when there is a full supp'y of  milk coming from' the cow, the vacuum  cannot work properly. The pulsation  is caused by letting a little air mis the  can every second, and this air rushes  against the milk, causing it to surge  backwards and forwards in the tube.  Aftar a little while the milk, instead  of running freely into the can, is actually driven up the teat cups against  the cow's_ teats. The final result of  this peculiar action is that'the milking operation is impeded, while the  surging of the milk up against the  teats so incommodes the cow that she  holds up the rest of her milk.   '���������;������������������.  The result of this discovery was tliit  within a few weeks all of the English  machines were discarded. The dairyman, however, who discovered; the  cause of the failure, Mr. Alexander  Gillies of Terang, believing that it  could be overcome, at once set to work  to do so. After numberless experiments  on his own herd of eighty cows, he set  up, some three months ago, a machine  which is claimed to be a perfect milking machine, which he has protected  by patents all over Australasia and  abroad. Recognizing that a pulsiting  vacuum was the most feasible method  of extracting the milk, he was also  convinced that having the one tube  only for both milk and pressure -vas  impracticable. His machine, therefore,  has two light rubber tubes, goiag side  The Norfolk's Monkey.

The all-important question of declaim;  upon tho selection of one or more fetching bathing suits is puzzling mniiy feminine minds, and never wns there sueli n  tantalizing display of stunning suits t'i  choose from as there is this season.

'  After the  material   ls   deeidod  upon   the  next consideration    is  the  fashioning of  lt,   and   this   requires   time,    for   ln   the  tendency toward elaboration on all kinds  of feminine apparel the bathing suit has  not  by   any  means   been   overlooked.  One of the most stunning comblnatlona  is a white taffeta suit with turquol������e  blue. The skirt has liny bias tucks  forming points at the various seams, all  stitched alike with blue silk, and at the  edge of the skirt above a deep hem aro  five small olrcular tucks. The skirt is  shaped rather similar to an umbrella  or parasol covering, exceedingly 'scant  and almost close lifting around the  waist, -but. Increasing considerably In  width as It lengthens. The waist is  closely tucked in the samo bias fashion  as the skirt-with a vest showing down  the front of straight tucks. The broad  sailor collar'Is of the plain blue taffeta  silk, with five rows of white silk braid  bordering It all around, and the sleeves  are finished Just abovei-.'tlie elbow*-, with  turned-back cuffs of the blue silk. .  Something decidedly -hew this season Is  a bathing suit of natural colored pongee.  It has just enough suggestion of a contrasting color on the blouse to make It  becoming. Pale blue is charming combined with this peculiar shade of tan, and  ln fact the paler* tones of blue adapt  themselves so delightfully with so many  different colors that touches of lt appear  everywhere and on about everything this  season.  The accepted walking skirt barely clears  the ground; does not indeed clear when  the wearer walks, but the outing girl  absolutely needs a shorter skirt for serviceable country wear, and if she cannot  afford two tailored uuting costumes she  would better have two skirts made for  wear with one Jacket. One skirt may be  of the inconvenient length dictated by  fashion; the other should clear the ground  well and be suitable for bad weather,  rough tramping, and active exercise of  any kind. ���������"*  The form of coat accompanying the  short skirt is a disputed question this  summer. There can be no doubt that the  bolero or Eton ln some form, or the coat  of hip length. Is more generally becoming  with a short skirt than a'longer coat, and  marks the proportions of tlie llgure in  more satisfactory fashion, but the blouse  coat with knee length skirt seems to  have obtained a certain  hold  upon   rem  Had the Advantage.

Beauty-making Foods.  "The best of all beauty-making foods  are fresh fruits and fresh vegetables,";  ,said  Prof.  H.  W:   Wiley,  the  famous  United States Government chemist,  who is incidentally a skilled physician.  "They contain relatively little nourishment���������a woman could hardly ' live on  them exclusively ..for any length of  time���������but for reasons whicli as .yet  are in}lerfectly understood;'.they, possess extraordinary value as real th-giv-  ers. If you want bright eyes and a  clear complexion,' eat plenty' pf them."  The fact is "that most fresh vegetables and fruits are nearly air water.;  Spinach is 92 1-2 per cent, water/ cab-,  bage is 77 per cent.".\valei*i beets arc 88  per cent, water, carrots are 91 per cent,  water, cauliflower is 91 per .cent,  water, * cucumbers arc op, per cent,  water, egg plant is 93'pcr'c'dnr.Vater,^  onions are 78 1-2 per cent, water, tomatoes are 96 per cent, water,.green corn  (cut from the cob) is 81 1-2 per cent,  water, and celery is 94 1-2 per cent,  water. Fruits are pretty nearly all  water, though the banana is relatively  rich in starch.  Fruits and vegetables, then, are of  no great use in supporting the human  body. Their value' is mainly medicinal, and as beauty-makers they are  the chief among foods. It is almost  impossible to eat too much of them.in  a fresh state, though, of course, thc  diet must include a reasonable proportion of those substances, such as meat,  wliich furnish blood,andjmiscle_tisstic.  vide was  a very pretty girl, and was*i -*������������������!"',? l,D who was not so eulogistic.  ������������������.*���������   o'T   mv  narisliicmers        The   Iii-ule-] -..     1'au''ceJ'.    ho said, "l think that story  ...   01   my parishioners.       xrrc   ot rue-. about the clock better every time I hear  It.     r think   to-night   was   tho    fiftieth  time."  ."'Why, President Newell says that story  is a daisy," expo* ulated Mr. Depew.  The   other   laughed,    "l'ou   ought     to  study botany, Chauncey, and you  would  learn that a daisy 's a hardy annual."  -And thereupon the Senator subsided.  Catching a Husband.  The London Dally Express'of a recent  date had the following :���������hloaussines Is a  small village In Belgium,' which possesses  a good sur-ly of girls, who . jalized late-  ���������y ���������that a great many of them were destined  to be old maids unless they took  the   matter   In   hand .'.themselves.    After  many meetings,   from  which' all married  folk  were  rigoro'sly excluded,  the girls  determined   to   Klve ,a   great   dinner   to  which   unwedded* youths   from   far   and  near  should   be  Invited-   Notices  of the  coming festival and its reasons we e published nil  over the  country and even  In  Holland..  This very original way*of, securing a husband has Just come oft, the  preparations and  decorations of the village having kept all ugog for a week. A  table was placed In the centre of the village  street,  and   the  hostesses,   "dressed  ' ..   A11,    "waited the arrival of the guests.  At   3   o clock   the  Mills,   with   their  parents and  the bachelor* guests,1 assembled  In front of the, town hall, whence numerous addresses  were given on the subject of matrimony.   Then tire event of the  day took place.   Tho loVerless glrls:toolc  their places at  table  first,  each  leaving  an empty seat -at herT side,  and waiting*  anxiously for the youth who should elect  to  sit beside, her.

Dinner   lusted   till   7   o'clock   In  true; Flemish-.fashion,-ending with songs  and speeches.' -By this time acquaintance  was made, hearts wore warmed, and declarations made,  a .d  the girls who had  suceceeded In aecu Ing sweethearts made  their   appearance   in; the   village .square  arm  In  arm  with  their captured  swa.'n.  Very few were left lamenting their prospective   slne-le-blessednessT     The   dinner  was  follow-     by  a ball  In   the onen air,  and many wedding days are already fixed.

If you  take off anot. r, you still have a 'bit  left. If you take off still another, thc  whole of 'it remains.

"While as an engine of war the submarine Is of doubtful expediency, It would  Hum ns i' Ji It might be of some service Iii l* prosaic business of salvage,"  says   T Marine    ltccord.      "Beyond   a  certain depth, and a very limited one at  that, there Is tit present no pract :al  means of recovering vessels or their cargoes. So enor. .uiisly does pressure In-  creu e ns one descends below the surface of the sea that vessels become mere  shattered hulks. Occasionally imaginative or optimistic wreckers endeavor to  snlvuge vessels at unusual depths, but  the story ls one of unbroken failure.

(From the Chronicles of Uncle Ike.)  No, I haven't forgotten the time L**ca4  Union Number One of the Amalgamates  Society of Housewives of British North1  America went out on strike. It cams'  right home to me, Mrs. Ike being a mem-'  ber of that late unlamented organization,'  It was off day at the shop. I'd oalou-  lated to take Mrs. Ike out for a drive,  but she refused. "I'm ovor so happy,  that you should have thought of it, Ike,'**  she says, "and you know I'd far rather  go with you than to the mooting, but,"  snys she, "my obligation as a member at  the Housewives calls for my attendance,  except when pliyslcully Impossible."  "Well," I says, "If you go for a drive  with me 'twould be physically Impossible to go to  the  meeting,  too,  so Just  put on your bonnet "  "Why does ***. man always call a woman's hat a bonnet '.'" she Interrupts,  rather sharp like.  "Woll, whatever lt is," 1 answers, kinder apoiogtzlngly, -put It on and we'll go  for a drive."  "I misdoubt, Ike," she says, shaking  her head ; "your sense of honor is somewhat warped."  "Whore ?" I asks, pretending to be  anxious. "I don't feel drawn up anywhere, ana, moreover," I went on,  s long as my horse sense Is In good  working order we'll rrot worry much about  tho other senses except the sense of  taste."  "Thinking of your supper already," says  Mrs. Ike. "Just like a man!" And llien  she kissed me, hoped I wouldn't get lonely before she camo back, and departed.  About the time she was due for supper  I thought to myself, "How'd it do for  me to have it ready for her when she  comes In, and I was so pleased with  myself for thinking of sueh a thing that  I almost allowed lt to stop ut the thought.  However, after a severe mental struggle,  as the story books say, and a good dial  of searching, I succeeded ln getting tha*  table set, and hud just put a kettleful of  water on lhe gas stovo* when Mrs. Ike  came in. She looked a little bit surprised when she saw what I had done, but  she sat down without saying anything  more than was necessary.  . "Well," 1 ' snys,_wondering why slro  hadn t tussea some about setting tlio  things out. "nothing for you to do but  just warm up the ptatoes and meat left  over from dinner, and that won't take  you long."  "You'll have to do it yourself," she says,  trying to speak very iirm.  "Not to-day, thank you,'* says 1, thinking she was just joking. "D'ye remember what happened the last timo I triod  to cook a meal the dav you hurt your  hand?" my mind going buck to a day  when I'd let n line roust of beef burn to  a crisp.  She looked uncomfortable, but answered  back, ."You'll   have   to   do   It:   there's   a  strika on."  ''Strike!" I just yelled tlie word.  , ��������� ijes," says Mrs.  Ike, a bit angry like.  Why. not?" she says.    ".Men have thoir  strikes, why not '.ho women?"  Well, I didn t know why, but I didn't  say anything, just stood and stared at  Her for I don't know how long, und she  just looked buck.  "Local Union Number Ono of the Amalgamated Society of Housewives of British North America is on strike," sho  says, at last.  : "That being the case," says 1, "Local  Branch Number One of the International  Married Men's Association '11 have te*  hold an emergency meeting to-nlglit to  consider the situation."  ���������What I" she gasped : "Why I didn't  know there was any sueh thing." :  "No more did I," thinks I to mrseM.  but aloud 1 says, ���������������������������Tut, tut! Old yo think  the heads of the household wore going to  be caught napping? We've been expecting  this, and preparing for it," I says. With  that I took the frying pan from a hook  at the top, of the cellar staira and man*  aged to knock down a few other pans,  "What are you going to do?" says Mrs.  Ike. ���������:���������'-  . "The Married. Men," I replied, as dig-  *  nifled as I could, "while refusing, to talk  for publication, maintain a very calm and  confident, attitude.'-', '  She looked dazed, but managed to' rise  and say, "I'll get the meat and potatoes.-*  ���������The Married Men," says 1, waving  to her to sit down again, "claim they ,  have all the help tlrey need, and will ndt  re-engage any of their old hands unless  the latter surrender unconditionally."  Then she began' to'* look frightened. -I  went to the pantry to search for tho  meat. 1 made ��������� all the noise 1 could  and knocked a milk jug to the floor, the  ugliest Jug you ever saw, and I'm thankful to say It'was completely smashed A  woman who came and stayed with us for  two weeks at Exhibition time,-on thu  strength of her daughter being acquainted with Mrs. Ike's mother, gave it to ua  as a souvenir, and Just because it was  one of that kind It had seemed Impossible  to break It.  Mrs. Ike, not knowing what I might  break next, Jumped up and savs, all  sweet and hesitating:' "Bee, we all decided  we wouldn't do anything for our husbands to-day, and���������and���������'twas just foolishness. I���������I," and then she stopped.  There was a suspicious gleam In her  eyes, and I guess my own were gleaming,  too. But I opened, my; arms, and when,  her head was resting where It had a right  to, I says, "It ls officially stated that tho  Married Men and the Housewives havo  come to terms." . ��������� -  "The agreement," says Mrs. Ike, all  sunshine again,* "being entirely satisfactory to both parties." W. B.  Kentucky Assassins.
