Edward Connolly, a brakeman in  the employ of the Canadian Pacific  Railway was drowned at midnight oft  Tue.vlny of lust week in Ihe slip at  Slocan City. Connolly was on the end  car of a train which was being backed  on the car barge, which lay in the .slip.  Ha gave tin* signal to the engineer to  stop and Ihen to go ahead as lire car  he was on was run on the barge. The  engine, however, was light, and became stalled when iljattenipled to go  ahead. When the engine stoppe'd il  appears that the coupling of tlie end  car broke anil the momentum ot the  released car was so great that il went  over the check block at tho end of the  track on the barge and plunged into  the water, ciurying Connolly down  with il. The car was loaded with  bullion from thc Trail smelter and was  so heavy that it sank instantly, Con-  Inolly going down with it,  An Interesting Event.

The bride was  given away by lier brother-in-law,  Mr. TH. Cooke.  Thu bride wore a handsome gown of  white silk organdie 'trimmed with  white satin, and with a lace berthe  falling over the shoulders. She was  crowned with a bridal wreath of white  roses, while in her hand she carried a  beautiful boquet of white roses, white  carnations and ferns.

The Bonspiel  A meeting of the executive of the  Kootenay Curling Association wa.-*  held yesterday morning at which the  date of the bonspiel was finally set for  the week commencing January illh.  The committee aie hard at work gelling the programme in shape and the  prize list "promises to be more extensive than in former years.  The Lardeau-Thistle culling club of  Trout Lake has made   application for  affiliation with the Association which  makes thiee additional clubs joining  the Association this year, the other  t wo being Ashcroft and Golden. 11 i.s  also expected that Vernon willaffili.ite  prior-��������� to the bonspiel' as step.s 'are  already being Liken, in .that diiection.  .The number of 'new 'clubs entering  the Association is due to the fact of  Revelstoke having been chosen as the  place for tlie --holding of. tthe bonspiel  lhis-sei'i*sou nnd il is^ confidently hoped  that "the great winter event ot the  Ivootenays will be more largely attended, than evei. In addition to the  usual contingent, , of curlers from  Southern Ivootenny i who ru-e in the  habit of- attending tliis great annual  event there will be rinks from Calgary,  Banif and 'Golden in the e.-ist���������Tro'ut  Lake*in" the" Lardeau. and,from-Vernon, Ashcroft and".-Vancouver in the"  west. ��������� With a kind" Providence the  .bonspiel this year should eclipse all  previous efforts.

Presbyterian Christmas Festival  The Christmas festival of St. Andrew's Sunday school wiw held on  Monday evening last, in the church.  The children turned out in force and  with patents arrd friends spent a very  enjoyable evening. After the rendering of a programme of music, recitations and songs, the children is entreated to refreshments and on .retiring from the church, each child was  given a bag of candy and fruit. The  Christmas tree was absent this year,  the school having decided to-forego  this so as to give the sum of $25 to the  Home Alission work of the church in  the Nortliwest. This sum with grants  from seven other schools going to  make up the $200 requisite for the  support of a Missionary in one of the  outstanding station-.

The unfortunate man ^wrus  walking along the track the same way  the train was moving. The engineer  caught sight of him ju-l as a sharp '  curve wits roundt-iiaiidwliistledto give  him warning to* got- off the track.  Finally he nut on tin* air ht.ikes in the  hope of stopping the train, .but this  was done too late. The cowcatcher  ���������struck the man and tlm-w him with  great violence tw enty feel down an  embankment. When he was picked  up it was found that both logs wen*  broken at the ankle aud that his  shoulder was fractured. It. wus - discovered that he was a deaf mute anil  this accounts for his failure to heeil  the warning toots of the whistle of the  locomotive. The injured man was  taken to Cranlirook where he was put  under the care of Dr. King.

Sometimes thia proved a convenient  arrangement; more often, * however, it  waa not, for the village people soon  learned tliat it was only too easy to impose upon the kind-hearted, gentle old  doctor. They loved him, of course���������thoy  could not help doing that��������� but apparently the village conscience slept when  It enrao to settling with the easy-going  -physician.  There were those who said thnt the  reason hc submitted so tamely to being  underpaid was bt*i:ui-e he feared lo risk  making'his patient- ill again by demanding larger fees. Tiv truth of the matter  was, however, that the overmodest doetor undervalued liis own worth.  "But, James," Mrs. Bronson would remonstrate, "it's ai! very well to tako it  out in potatoes, Lot you know just as  well as I do that Timothy Peek always  ���������ells his best potatoes, and brings us  only the little undersized ones that nobody would think r.f buying. Those last  ones weren't bigger than marbles. You  must stand "up for your rights."  But the doctor, apparently unmoved  .by these protests, continued to accept  hii patients' excuses along with then  ���������>' offerings of wormy apples, wood that  was full of knots, eggs tha t were more  than doubtful, and milk that wirs guiltless of cream. The Bronsons were ever  Bhort of ready money, but nil their other  wants wer^, in a measure, supplied, if  not always to Mrs. Bronson's satisfaction.  "I really, need a new horse," said thc  doctor  one morning, as he stepped into  his shabby  buggy   to  make   his  usual  round of visits.   "The colt is pretty siire  to give out before the summer is over."  The "colt," which was a colt only by  ���������courtesy, being twenty-two years of age  . and old for his years, certainly looked  aa if he might give out at any moment.  _He limped slightly, he was blind in one  -eye, and something was wrong with his  breathing apparatus.    His owner drove  bim with the utmost tenderness, but it  was plain that the doctor needed a new  horse, and that without delay.  "Here's a letter for you, father!" called  Cicely, the Bronson3' only daughter, as  the doctor turned in at the gate that  noon. "I'll put it at your place at the  table, so you can read it while you are  ���������rating the beans th.rt Airs. Binkc'brought  you for setting'Johnny's.leg."  "JNow really," said the doctor, when he  had read *.'the letter, "this is very fortrr-  "i nate. I've' tried all the spring not to  wish that Sam'.Peters would fall ill, but  It's been n. great temptation, for Sam is  the only person I could think of that  ������\ouId be likely lo pay his bill with a  horse.

"Isn't she;  i'the person that you sat up with for six:  rrsonseeutive nights when she had pnetr-  ^smoiiis ?    You deserve a doxen iVrrses ,1:  '.���������reek   for  all    the    beautiful,  unselfish' |  'Jthings you do."  The doctor smiled gratefully at this:'  tribute.   For all tire years of his married! j  -life he had cherished a mild ambition tn'1   -!ho  to me he said he could get a good pries  for this one if he could only bring it to  the right market. He said in his note  that his wife wbb anxiou9 to get home  to her own people, and that he didn't see  his way clear to selling the horse. No-  one in Cloverly seemed to care to buy:  the animal."  "I'm not surprised," said Airs. Bronson.  "His looks are decidedly against him."  "Still," said Cicely, whose darkest cloud,  always had its silver lining, "lie is much  better than a lion, or a hyena. Suppose  that this acrobat nnd his wife had been  obliged to take their pay in monkeys or  giraifes or boa-constrictors! "Where  would the poor Bronsons have been then?  I think we've had a fortunate escape." _  The horse, except -for a few peculiarities, proved an excellent animal. He was  gentle and tractable, a good traveler, and;  Ire seemed to be possessed of more than;  ordinary intelligence. Thc townspeople  soon became accustomed to the gorgeous*  ness of his exterior, and the Bronsons  would have forgotten that ho had once'  been a circus horse had it* not been Joy'  a certain singular trick which he frequently played. '*-*  If his driver happened to twitch the  reins in a certain way, the horse, whose  name waa Aladdin, would suddenly stop  short wherever he happened to be, nrj  regardless of both harness and consequences, would seat himself on his  haunches, with his forefeet still resting  on the ground.  Nothing that the doctor could say or  di would induce his calico steed to rise.  Aladdin would turn his head and look  pleadingly at his master, as if imploring  him for permission to stand on all fours;  but the bewildered doetor was powerless  to help him.   ���������  At last, when the horse could no linger endure his cramped and uncomfortable  attitude, he would cast a final reproachful glance at his puzzled master, and, as  if abandoning all hope from that quarter, would scramble to Iris feet and proceed on his way like any ordinary horse.  The doctor was finally obliged to use a  patent harness without breeching.  Aladdin's only other reprehensible trait  was his custom of dancing to the music  of the Cloverly band. Whenever the doctor's business took him to Cloverly, ire  found it expedient, after his first experience with Aladdin's waltzing hoofs, to  enquire by telephone if there was any  likelihood that the band might appear  upon the streets that day.  If, by any chance, it happened to be a  gala day, the doctor would turn Aladdin  out to grass, and would drive the ancient  colt; for a summer of idleness had much  improved that iuisnrr;ncd animal.  County fair week was approaching, and  as usual the Bronsons were short ol*  ready money. Cicely, with her elbows 011  the table, spent several" evenings over  calculations in domestic economy, for lier  autumn wardrobe was in need of replenishing. She had little time for embroidery, and the only thing she had ever  painted was, as she said laughingly, the  front fence.    ' .  ,  "No," she said, "I'm afraid this fnmily  doesn't boast a single exhibitable possession, unless���������'   Father!"  "What, is it?" asked the doctor, looking up hastily from This book.

United States Senator Ve?t once paid  this eloquent tribute to a dog in a suit  brought against a farmer who shot his  neighbor's faithful be.nt in malice: "The  one absolutely unselfr-h friend that mnvr  can have in this selfish world, tbe one  that never deserts him, the one that  never proves ungrateful or treacherous,  is his dog. A man's dog stands hy hrir  in prosperity and in poverty, in health  and in sickness. He will sleep on the  cold ground, where the wintry wind*  blow and thc snow drives fiercely, if onlv  he may be near his master's side. He  will kiss the hand that has no food tf-  offer; he will lick the wounds and sore-  that cortre in encounte.r with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep  of his pauper master as if lie were a  prince. When all other friends desert h<  remains. When riches take wings and  reputation falls to pieces he is as constant in his love as tlre'snh in its journeys through the heavens. If fortune  drives the master forth an outcast in  the world, friendless and homeless, the  faithful dog asks no higher privilege than  that of accompanying him, to guard  against danger, to fight against his  enemies. And when the last 3cene of all  comes, and death takes the master in Its.  embrace, and his body is laid away in  the cold ground,.no matter if nil other  friends pursue their way, there by the  graveside wil] the noble dog be found,  his head between his paws, his eyes sad,  but open in ale.rt watchfulness, faithful  and true, even in death." On the strength  of this speech, it is snifl, the jury was so  moved that it awarded the plaintiff a  verdict of five hundred dollars.

The thing is French! One of the negroes  at the Nouveau Cirque,, interviewed by a  Paris papgr, says that the origin of tho  dance was French. According to this  latest account, some of the French refugees from the court of Alarie Antoinette introduced thc minuet into New  Orleans about the time of the Revolution, and it was the native imitation of  the most fashionable dance in Europe  that was afterward developed into the  cake walk.  The Declaration of Independence is to  be seen no more l>y thc public, an order  having been issued that henceforth the  historic manuscript shall-be kept under  lock and key in a great fire and light-  proof safe. This decision has been  reached as the result of an examination  of the document by a committee of the  American Academy of .Sciences,' recently  in session in New York, wiio acted at  the instance of Secretary Buy, whoso  attention had been called to tire sad  state of the famous document. -Alost of  the text of the Declaration is Mlill legible, but only one or two of the signatures can be made out.

A delightful literary find must bo credited to the. authority, of a recent book,  "Sidelights on Charles Lamb." Dirring  ono day with a friend and. being pressed  to take some rhubarb pie, Lamb declined  because it was physic. ''That niay be,"  said his host, "but it is pleasant and innocent."

Andrew Lang tells this story illustrating the rigorous and ascetic life of the  Scots. "It seems that a laird, in the year  1705, set out to join the Pretender, taking with him his son, a youth of sixteen  or so. One night this laird and his little  troop were compelled to .sleep in the  open, though it was snowing,* and snow-  lay deep upon the ground.

GHAPTKiJ IV.  '���������''"'" Repented  at  J>i,su;*,  The week that followed seemed  like a.,strange dream to Izetta.  Those who saw I ho young gentleman anil his beautiful, cluiging gir'l-  wifo wondered at them.  There was a world of passionate  love in the girl's dark nyes; every mio  -could seo sbe lived on his words and  glances; tier sweet, foreign C.rce told  its own story. A child no lo.iyc. ���������  love Bad nuado her a woman, devoted nnd tender, a.s th** genraL sunshine  ���������expands the bud into the rose.  Her husband mnde Little pretense of  ���������affection, yet ,it was not in human  nature to .be wholly blini to the ar-  ���������dent love tliat glowed in that beautiful face.  rjlmonc waa -beginning to realize  that tlie iovo which tha Rev. Paul II-  lingswortli had predicted was coming  to His young ivU'e; he had yet to  learn its depths. Ue never dreamed  tie one great thought that filled  Izetta's souL iwas:  "X love uUderic so dearly, so deeply,  lie must love me in return."  Tins weeK had hardly passed ere Ulmont repented most bitterly wh.at he  had done; it was a sad fact, yet too  -terribly true, he told himself. -  Trie vow which had been extorted  from mm nad cost him a terrible  .price.  How Wonld he meet Loraine, who  ���������was ma tietrothed bride, and tell her  wfiat ne Had done? What exxruse could  The offer to atono for her outraged  pride? He knew Loraine loved him  ���������deeply In her cold, proud way; he  Jcnew How she would come forth to  meet mm, a flush on her beautiful  face, ann with the love- light in hr.r  ���������eyes; ins rlnpr��������� thi ring with wli'-h  the; bad plighted their troth���������sparkling on her little white hand; lion* , u ���������  light would die out of her beautiful  eyes wAen he told hor what he had  .   done,  BBa cotild easily see hs had not married lor love,.he told hiin^olf; he had  bean forced into Lt through duty; still,  the ratal work had been done��������� he was  -securely. married.  Brave as the young man was, he  haa not tne courage to face his stern,  -haugnty mother; he would not have  ilincned an Lhe foremost of-a battle,  twitn snot and shell falling thickly  about mm; yet he did shrink from tbe  *ury- tnat .would gather in his mo-  tier's eyes .when he spoke tho words  W-hiclt were beginning' to gall like  Wormwood on this lips��������� he was married. It it had been Loraine-, proud,  peerless, aind Self- possessed, how different it would all bare been.  itf he chanced to meet a maiden  Svitn golden trair, his heart almost  ceased to .beat, and the name Loraine  .would spring .unconsciously to his  lips.  IX ne saw a handsome, graceful woman, wnom every one universally ad-  tnired, or Jbeard her solrery laughter,  ie would remain silent for long hours,  thinking bow blind and rash he had  been; tiros nia impulsive recklessness  ������truot trome .to his heart at Last.  Xt waa a   strange bridal week.  -Uimoot treated his young wife gently, considerately, but in his own  heart lie oried oat:  "This marriage was a great mistake!"  Tiie young heir of Ulvesford Mines  told Himself he was  wretchedly    un-  - happy, yet all of his  future      years  must pay the price of one moment's  impulsiveness.  There was >no one tcblame but himself.     JH'e fully resolved, howevor.thut   Izetta-s-Jiould-not suffer-for-it  unite sure slie Haw him gtizinjr Ions  arrd earnestly nt a lock of golden  hair, which he replaced wilh the letters in   hi.s hrenst-  packet.  Then, for the first time during the  short week of her nrirririge, she addressed  him   involuntarily:  "Do you like ij&Iderr hriir very much,  'Alderic.?" sire   asked,   wistfully.  For a brief instant Ulmont quite  forgot it wus liis dark- haired wifo  wiho asked tho iiuesiion, as he answered, enthusiastically.-  "ft is the most glorious of all tho  crowns  of  womanhood."  Ulmont" never dreamed that Tzettn  was wondering' why God made her  own curls so dark, with a deep pain  in her heart, whilo her hand-sraio  young* husband admired fair, shining  hair.  "I will elbow you, Izetta," he said,  "how gloriously shimmering golden  hair can crown a   licnuiil'ul  face."  As he spoke hu drew from his pocket  a pearl case, half hidden in its bed 'of  purple. Tzotta silently took the picture  from his hand.  "I warn you not to be enraptured,"  he lnughed. "I am the artist, 90 you  see it is by ho means what it should  have been; the subject, though, is  .worthy of the prandest masters."  Izetta -gazed tong and earnestly at  the picture, drinking in every detail  ot  that   equisitely   perfect   face.  A strange, numb feeling stole over  her.  She was to remember it all with  rivid distinctness in after {years.  The picture was certainly a strange  one���������half reality,   half   ideal.  A graceful, tall, white lily was represented on the polished irory, quite  in the centre of a vase of rare exotics,  while upon Its snowly petal was tha  rarest face Izetta had over gazed upon. -~y 1  v V face pore sod spiritual, yet  blended with the eoldest pride, from  the perfect, arched browa to the delicate curves of tbe smiling, sensi-tiva  mouth, so HIce a cleft, deep crimson  rose-leaf. .   .  The eyes were a large, deep, expressive blue, the face was perfect in  contour and dainty coloring, crowned in * halo of goldeu bair, long and  surfing, which mingled with tho lily's  golden calyx."  Beneath was written in fanciful design, "My love."  Izetta scarcely knew how long she  fazed at It.     Dlmont interrupted her.  "Tou are pleased with rny fancy?"  te said, gently.  "This Is your Meal of lore, Alderic,,M :  lhe said, softly; "it is very beautiful,  fet is only ������   picture from your imagination, fs it not, Alderic?"  The flush deepened on Ulmont's face  is he answered, evasively:  VI hare seen such a picture^.it was  we of a few choice ones in a private  roi lection. I painted it .quite from  memory."  "It must" hnve impressed* yon  itrongly, Alderic."  "So it did," he replied, carelessly  snough'.  How little sfie kn������w every Hnrnment  *f .that   beantiiul  face,  of  which  Le  al! others, was the one best fitted to  break the news of her soli's marriage  to the stern, cold woman, who never  forgot nor forgave an injury.  If she would pardon him and receive  Izetta as his wife Ulmont had decided  to return at once; tbat was tho message he sent her, which the strange  workings of fate destined she should  never receive. .   1   ,  It happened in this wiset ' '  UJmoat had desired the rector to  let him know at once the result of  thla interview, directing his communication to a (-mail station at the  orossroad, which they should read  late in the week.  It favorable, he could take Izetta  direct to Boston; if not, he could take  her for the present to his old nurse  at Silvernook, who would receive her  .with open nrm/r for bis sake.  He hoped when Iris haughty mother  saw remonstrance wns useless -and  regrets in vain the principal difficulty  .would be removed.  "When they reached tho station nt  the crossroads, Ulmont received a note  .which quite unmanned him.  A letter, dated two days previous,  hastily written, a waited him, which  .was as follows:  "Boston, Thursday morning ��������� My  Dear Boy:��������� If you would see your  mother alive hasten home at once or  you may bo too late. I found her in  so feeble a condition, fearing the  slightest shock inigfrt prove fatal, I  dared" not broach tho subject of your  marriage. TLotive your -wife there until the crisis is past. I will bo at each  train to meet you. Your faithful  friend,  "Paul  Illingsworlh."  (Again Ulmont made the mistake of  his Life by not confiding fully and unreservedly in his young wife.     .   1  In ten minutes the train started for  Silvernook; five minutes later he could  catch the express direct to Boston. He  had not a   minute to lose.  He hurriedly explained to Izetta, as  he thought, all that was necessary for  her to know at present. His mother  lay ill, perhaps dyr"n.g;.he must go to  her at once, whilo she must go on  alone to Silvernook, which was fortunately but an hour's ride.  He would give her a note to his old  nurse, whom she could readily find,  who would receive her kindly until he  came for her, which would certainly.  be within the following, week.  Ulmont hastily tore a leaf from his  memorandum, wrote a short' note  which he addressed and placed in her  hand, together with the little package containing the money her grandfather had left her, and two hundred  dollars which he happened to have by  bim.  It was all so sudden.  Izetta struggled hard to bravely  bear the separation from the husband  whom she so madly worshipped. The  next moment found her alone on the  train.  Ulmont watched long and earnestly till she was quite out of sight, the  sweet, tear-stained. face pressed close  against the window-pane.  His heart gave a great throb.  "Was it possible," he asked* himself,  -'he was. learning to love-his young  wife after all?'"  Izetta's face haunted him during all  Df his journey home; he quite wished  ihe was by his side' again.  How little Ulmont UiTe������������ortl dreamed under what pitiful cironststancep  be should look upon her face again.  CHtATPTJER-V.  In the midst of a - gr<-������o nnd grassy  lawn, thickly studded here and there.'  ivith towering elms and stately beech'  treea. stood a    gray- stone   structure,'  la If hidden from  the main road     by  One tHj-ght, sunlit morning, toward  the ctose of that eventful week; *, Ulmont asKed Izetta if she would like  to taice a* ramble by the seashoro; tho  .sun was 'lighting the water,* with a  thousand arrowy sparkles.and the air  was rigorous and exhilarating, nnd  laden .with .the aroma oi the distant  . spice- groves and myriads of blossoms  over .wniah It had lately lingered.  Izetta looked up into his i������ce with  jjlad, sdiining eyes.  "I should be so pleased to go, Mr.  Ross," she said.  How she longed to call him husband,  but Ulmont's proud, haughty face In-  ^fritod.little familiurity.  ���������"��������� He had grown quite used to the title; indeed, it had never struck him as  Strange his beautiful young wife  Should call him Mr. Boss.  1 .Woman- Like, Izetta bad donned her  prettiest robes, of which he had purchased her quite a supply, to please  ham. Ulmont had been simply surprised* at the great difference dress  could make in her.  In her plain dark dress and crimson cloak he had thought of ber as a  child, yet he was forced to admit she  jvas a beautiful young girl in the  eoft, dark pluab traveling- dross she  wore, wlucdi fitted her ho perfectly;  yet, after the first .surprise, he quite  forgot to notice lier '���������'appoarauco' at  nil.  For quite nn hour they promenaded tho beach in utter silence; those  wiho passed tlrem wondurud why lho  young man's -face was turned so per-  tj-iterrlly awny from tlio beautiful, for-  '���������'cign face' that .was raised so wistfully toward his -own; they woirdcred  why he looked far out over thu sea  and sighed.  'Izetta never nt templed to con-  vurso with him, luring only *io content to answer his questions if ho  chanced  to iidrlrei-iH      hor.  She often rut him tako from his  pocket a pricket of letters, tied by a  dainty, p,ilc-bluo riblrni; fomu til  tlnvm were old nnd worn, aa if by  marry perusals,    and  onco  abo      wns  ralne Lorrlmer wa3 tho original, .was  stamped indelibly on his "heart.  The great wonder was, how was he  ever to learn to forget her?' Izetta's  hand trembled as she handed the portrait  back  to her liu-sband.  Was it fate tbat caused the handsome case to drop from her nervous  fingers upon the sharp urags -at her  feet?     She uttered a   -startied cry.  There was but 11'tie damage done;  the face was uninjured, only a por-  tioa-cf one of the cornoru was broken off, which fell into -her hand as  she stooped to recover if."  Izetta could not just then account  for the sudden impulse tl-^t led her  to preserve that little jagged edge of  pearl so carefully; perhaps because ft  had belonged to toinetbijg her husband had prized; it had lain in her  hands; his eyes had gazed upon it.  Ulmont was quite amused at the  grieved face turned toward him.  _^*I_ hppe_you. _wilL Corigive-me,- Al-  deriol" she said; "X have sporled your  beautiful portrait, your pretty love."  How little Izetta realized the vital  truth of her words. Ahl she had  spoiled his love, and his life; yet he  laughed gayly at her sorrow. Of "course  ho was sorry, too, but mistakes would  happen; there was no help for them.  Ulmont laughed as he noted how u  few pleasant words had brought back  tho sunshine to her eyes.  She came np closer lo him and laid  her hand timidly on his arm.       ���������:������������������'.  "Do you think, Alderic," she asked,  eimply as a child might have done,  "your ideal of love is prettier than  I?      You  had not  seen  me  then."  The very caudor of the question  amazed him. Looking .down into  those starry eyes, he, so chivalrous to  all women, how could he help telling  her evasively that her face, above all  others, was the most beautiful io the  world?  As he loobed down upon her he  wondered if, after nil,, there was ever  any possibility of his becoming really  interested in In*3 fair young wt'e,.  Ki that moment a sudden inipu'.-re  seized Jrim to throw the pc..*crait far  out into the sea and the 'letterd after it.  What right had he, now that he  ivas bound to another, lo drenin of the  fair face of Lor.ir'ne Lorrlmer. or to  .gaze ru������fu,'iy upon the'pictured face?  Had U.'munt, for. once in' his li'e,  oboyed    the    sudden   impulso that  sprang frim his heart, the . greatest  tragedy of liis Lite would have been  spared liim.  The grand old'harao and honor of  Ulvosford, which Lhe young heir would  havo shielded with hi*** ITCe, would never have been dragged through -the  rmlro of dishonor, and this story would  aovor have been written.  I   Then   a    strange   ovens   happened.  .When Ulmont had parted from the  rector he hnd asked, 'ns a special fav-  or.^lh.-iL the Itev. lllirijj.iwoi'lh should,  upon his arrival nt Iloiton, call iinnie-  atoly on his mother.  .. Ulmont kDcw that tha rector, above  creeping vines and intervening shrubbery; ite jnoss-igrown turrets and gabled roof towering toward the sunshine��������� this was Lorrlmer Place, one  of the finest old mansions to be found  in the suburbs of Boston.  The spacious grounds, which surrounded it were a model of artistic  beauty, from the miniature lakes on  which the graceful white- necked  swans glided to and fro, to the marble statuary half hidden by the rare,  dense foliage, and rose- covered arbors which extended to the thickly-  wooded glen which lay beyond.  At one of the windows, from which  the heavy, amber satin curtains were  looped back, stood Loraine Lorrimcr,  the heiress.  The golden sunshine never lingered  npon a fairer picture than she made  in her. morning dress of creamy lace,  which fell in graceful fold's about her  perfect figure; she looked what she  was���������a queenly young girl, one born  to command.  There were pride, poetry and passion  blended in each_ glance_of_.her__blue,  fla"shihg~e.yes,' her lace in its haughty,  charming repose, was simply a perfect oae, from which her long golden  hair was pushed carelessly, back, a  spray of white heath in its golden  waves, fastened with a diamond arrow.,  tA magnificent solitaire gleamed upon her finger, on which her eyes often  rested. //  'At last sho turned from the window, with a light shade of disappointment on her face.  "I had quite expected a letter  from Ulmont," sho said, meditatively.  "I am surprised at not having some  kind of a   message from him.*'*---  Her mother, who reclined on an adjacent divan, closed the book she held  in her lap with a smile its she replied:  "Ulmont may count himself lucky  if he reaches here by to-morrow. You  must not , forget, my dear Loraine,  how very uncertain the arrival of  these steamers are nowadays. Young  people are always impatient. I never  saw a young, expectant bride, without thinking of the day before my  own wedding."  "Did you leel a strange, happy  restlessness that y<m could scarcely  explain, mamma?"  asked Loraine,  blushing rosily, seating herself on   a  low hassock at her feet. .  "Yes, and I was much like you,.never quite satisfied unless I was at the  window, watching for the coming of  my lover."  The rose bloom deepened on Loraine Lorrimer's flower- like face.  "You are mistaken, there, mamma,"  sho said. "I do -not expect him until  the eventful to-morrow."  'As she spoke, she thought of the  closing sentence of the last letter she  had received from liim; he had written:  "I shail be at horrimcr JPInce by thc  15th inst., positively, to claim for my  bride the sweetest, fairest girl in all  the wide, wide world. My sweet Loraine, time nor tide could e'er withhold me."  - The snpcrfc  troasseaa a       princeqj  might hnve been proud of, had .-rrriv-  ud the day ibetoiv;-tli������n l.orninu had  done a foolish tlrinr?; shu had array-  od hnrself in the shimmering gossamer  robes to note tire ef.uul; even clasped the pearls around her perfect neck  and arms, und lastcmd the veil to her  golden heir, smiling proudly'the while,  as she thought iron- phased her haud-  eo-me young lover would be with her.  As Loraine stood thero an evont  happened, which, though trifling in  itself, caused.her a strange sensation.  She had gone to her jewel-case to  consult her watch.  "How strange," she said to herself,  ns she took it in her hand. "It has  stopped!"  It wanted twenty minutes to eight.  Loraine gathered up her bridal- robr\s  ubout. her, stepping out into tho corridor, to whore the iruga old clock ticked away the hours;, hur heart almost  ceased to beat���������tire pendulum stood  still, watch and clock, as if by common consent, hnd stopped on the selfsame moment��������� twenty minutes to  eight.  Loraine hastily re-entered1 her boudoir; she was not superstitious, yet  she could not help but remember the  story she bad otten heard, how that  same old clock hail stopped on the eve  preceding some great, sorrowful family event. Still she did not liko to  remember old traditions on the eve  before her wedding- day,  Pretty young briduemaids had taken full possession oC thc hall. "Everything should be in" perfect readiness on the morrow," thoy said.  The bride'eake Had arrived, and was  really a   work of art hi its way.  Merry peaisc of laughter filled the  corridors and spacious rooms, ns nimble fingers fashiuned the great pillars of  rotes.  "One wedding makes many." More  than ono maiden secretly hoped that  some faint-hearted lover would take  courage, under- the mystic influence  of the occasion, and who knew but  their own wedding- night might be  the  next   to  follow.  Full many a happy thought was  twined anion? those roses,those sweet,  fragrant roses, tbat could keep their  own secrets.  Mrs. Lorrimcr gazed upon her  dau7hter with all a mother's fond  pride.  "You are peerlessly beautiful, Loraine," she said, caressiny the young  girls bright, golden hair. "You might  have married a- duke or prirnce, .yet  you havo chosen lovo. You hiive-  weallh, beauty and love; truly your.  lines have fallen in .pleasant places."  She kissed her dauyhtor's upturned  face and left the room, leaving Loraine alone .with her own happy reflections.  At that moment KTaty, the maid, appeared at the door.-  "If you* please, Miss Loraine," she  aaid, "there* Ls a person down stairs  who insists upon seeinj you, although  I told him .you gave orders that no  stranger should be admitted!"  "Did he give you no card, or state  his business?" asked Ixjraine, sur-  prisedly.  "Card! oh, no," answered the maid,  .vith a slight grimace.... "He is down  ..n the servants' hall and refuses to  give his name."  "That's strange," murmured the  neiress, reflec-tirfly, dr'nking perhaps  ,t was some poor tenant., or a former  recipient or her p-iiTims "bounty; for  Loraine was as capricious and gennr-  >us as she was haughty and beauti-  Tul.

Terrible Suffering and Deeds
of   Heroism.
Thelntesl particulars of the awful
passenger wreck on the liallimoie A:
Ohio, eight miles from Connelsville.
I'n.. on Christmas Kve. make the dis-
asii-r-even worse t Iran at -lirsl reported.
Timbers dropped from a piocedin:-;
freight, were the cause of the accident,
and the terrible calamity list was
mostly owing to the steam that lilled
the lirsl. passenger car and literally
cooked lire unfortunate occupants,
many of whom run screaming into the
nearby woods.
When General Manager Sims, of the
l.rilltinoi-i* iV Ohio Railway arrived at.
the scene of the wreck of the IJuqticsiic
Fiver at. Dawson that, night, in which
02 persons wore killed, he was so overcome that he cried. Tire spectators
were compelled to turn away from
the sights.
When the relief train reached here'
thousands of people were at tiro station. A large number of Connelsville people hail gone to-Pittsburg for
Christmas shopping and were expected
home on the Limited. Kvery available
cab and carriage had been held in
waiting to convey lhe injured to I he
hospitals. Citizens formed a relief
corps and helped (���> remove' the
wounded fr-oiii the train.
In addition lo those who have died
si nee. being taken from the wreck, inn nv
others are certain lo Ire added to the
number of victims. All have inhaled
the steam and ace siilVering intensely.
I.onis Hilgol, the conductor of the
train, was in the second day conch
when the crash ciime. and no one
knows just how or what happened tii
him. I.). W. I lills, porter on une of
the sleepers, said that, as soon .'as he
could get oil' his car he went forward
aird hi'iiI'd ITilgot shouting from the
top of the batik, lie was in terrible
.agony, bill, shouted: "Por- God's sake,
I am scalded to denth, but some one
of you get a red lamp, and flag-III pi-
she will In-mi us." liven in the merlin! siilVering of every rare about the
scene the bravery and tlioiightfiilness
of the dying conductor was sufliciont
lO;bt'ing words:-.(.if-, -praise.: arid : cuin-
niendafion.      ..
When asked if there '-would-' he any
investigation on the part of the railroad
ullieials. Supt.. lb W. Direr said, "!
don't think that' an ���investigation is
necessary to explain this affair, it isalf
too apparent." Pointing to half a
dozen heavy timbers under the dining
coach, he said: ���There is the cause of
it. An extra -freight west bound,.'has
dropped'those' timbers on the track and
proceeded unconscious oft lie trouble it
had left behind."
....Never were more terribla scenes to
be'witnessed than those aborrt the
wreck. The steam front the car's filled
the air. Many of the stricken people

There is a souietvh-.it widespread im-  H-ession that tho use o������ so lmiuir. wire  ir 't-ulophona and ether electrical pur-  . fDses, ia cities and towns, largely inti cases tha danger of lishtnini;  P.-olies. Tho notion is bused upon tho  Mmcensratiou within certain limits o������  l great quantity of conducting mineral, v.'liich, it is assumed, attracts tho  electricity and thereby increases iho  langer ������roiu it.  Whilo it is true 'that the increase of  ionducting nrateriai increases the at-  .Taction, it la not true that it increases  :ho danger. As a matter or fact, it  iecreases the danger, for the moro  iurfa.ee electricity has over which to  spread, the more readily and quietly  It is carried to the earth. A houso  tvith a metal roof is not often struck  by lightning, for while the metal may  attract the electricity, it also gives ft  room to spread out, and its force ia  thus dissipated.  The fact was demonstrated by  Franklin with his kite long ago, and  lightning rods are put ou buildinj.a  to give storm clouds a means of discharging their electricity into tho  earth. This discharge takes place  without the report that we call thunder, for eleciricity makes no noise unless it meets some resisting medium.  It is a well known fact ihat thero  Is less danger from lightning in cities  dian in the country, and this is due ta  the general use of iron, steel and other  metals In city buildings. The buildings are tall and would;seem, therefore, to be specially attractive to tho  liifhtning; indeed they are often  struck, but the metal in them dissipates the .force of the tltiid and carries lt harmelssly aud quietly to the  earth. The effect of telephone wires  upon atmospheric electricity has been  under official investigation by the  German department of telegraphs, aud  statistics from 900 cities show that  the danger from, lightning strokes is  tour times as great in towns that do  not have -the telephone as in these  that have it The conclusion of the  whole matter, therefore, fs that an  abundance of wires gives protection  from lightning, instead of increasing  Lhe danger.���������Philadelphia Presa.--  V*^_���������-���������... ;'-."  ���������'-���������..���������*..

Kal lrariue, lire one ana  only being whom he had ever allowed  to creep into lus heart and be enthroned there. Katharine, whoso  image had been blended in those  sweet, lost dreams of ir future, when  his saint and. its angel should also he  his  wife.      Wus not the  cup of sor  row too Wtiter? -  No wonder a blight and a shadow  had fallen on the handsome, frank  young face. The prospect had been  very hard to bear when she had ^told  liim his love was hopeless, but its  weight was as nothing compared to  irow. Then, allhou.gh hope was debarred him, be had iind the glorious,  lire ever sweet Knowledge that he  loved and waa beloved.  A week had gone since ihat day-  only ci week, lo Ormande it seemed  one long, weary year. He had prayed so hard for' comfort, for light in  his darkness, for peace of mind and  resignation. He had prayed for forgiveness, tix>, for irr hi.s humility he  said, ''I put her before Heaven, and  1 have ninneil -most terribly 1" but  r lunigh his prayers soothed they could  not bring rorgettulne-ss, ond as lie  walked away from hi.s aunt's carriage through the dusij, hot, August  scorched streets, "nis heart was crying out tor hi.s love ���������not for lire  Katharine, as he knew her now, but  for hi.s pure, lovely- faced Kalharine,  who had seemed to hiin to be. the  earthly embodiment of one of those  sweet, grave, good spirits sent some-  liuie-s by a beneficent I'a'ovidence to  strengthen und purify man for this  earthly  existence.  'Anl ihn, suddenly, his thoughts  changed, and with a shiver he remembered her in her lone estate, and  a. great flood of emotion broke loose  in his heart. He had not permitted  hiutsc-lf hitherto to dwell much on  Katharine, wliere Bhe was, what she  was doing, or aught appertaining to  her, nnd it seemed io him all at  once, as if  he  had   bsen   too  selfish.  "I should have trodden down my  own feelings, crushed rny own pain.  What is my broken heart to her  soul's danger? Yes. yes, I have, been  wrong; I see it all plainly now. I  must;, seek her* out, I must find them,  nnd by every means in my power  1 mast try to rrw-aken the dormant  good that lies hidden in her heart.  I have, neglected my Muster's duty;  henceforth I will forget my own  sorrow, forget: myself to think of her  ond of her salvation ! I will commence  my task this very day, this very  hour!"  iAnd such is the strange destiny  that bangs about we dwellers on this  globB. While Ormande was determining this ���������having no clue to the  whereabouts of the woman he meant  (o succor, imagining her to be, per-  hapa by now, miles away oai 'the  brood ocean ���������he was erven then going toward hor; in a few more momenta they would meet 1  'OH'APXEn XXIV.  Lord Otway was bound, as be had  told his aunt on a jte-w hours' hard  work in soma of the dingiest slums  in this rich, bustling, prosperous London. It wusnot, as ho had said, exactly a neighborhood in which to tako  Lady Blanche, or, indeed, any refined, highly cultured woman, but he  did not shrink from it. He knew  every place so well, and the welcome  he received, if expressed in blunt nnd  somewhat uncouth language," Was  none tho less pleasant to him for  that. _ >  Here, situated in t he very heart of  poverty nnd wretchedness,- was a  home for nursing sisters; a fluid,  unpretentious place, with no pomp or  outward fuss connected with it, but  which, for all that, was ono of the  busiest and best conducted establishments it was possible to find. Lord  Otway knew it well. He had had  much help nnd sympathy from these  good womr-n in his work; he. knew,  their value, and he set a hi.gb store.  upon it. Their charity was worth  more than fifty such model v' 11aires  and patronesses as Brexley and Barbara Mostyn any dny, he snid to  himself.  On -, this rtfternoon, when he had  conquered the excitement aird emotion that followed on hs sudden determination, Ormande plunged into  his work. There w-ns a great deal  of sickness ���������fever ond other ailments ���������and ir was not long before  ba. found  he mus;!   have, a   coadjutor.  "If Sister Dora   Ls  not  engaged  she  will   do   lr,"  he,  snid   to  himself,  confidently,  nnd  he   turned   his footsteps  to   the home above  mentioned.  The ma' ron  received  him  cordhlly.  "Please sit down,  Lord Otway," she  snid,   with   a   smile;   "Sister   Dora   is  just  at  this  moment  engaged  with  a  lady.

Only     let   her  colne I"  lho matron withdrew, and Ormande sukkI with orre hand cleno^vinp  tho chair beside him. in that riu-  ment he had conquered -himself and  his own weakness; he had silenced the  longing Ihat filled hi.s heart; he had  nothing but his duty before him ���������  was no longer an earthly man wiih  earthly,desires; nothing but the servant  of  hi.s God.  His back was turned to the door,  and as il opened, aud a soft fool step  sounded on the bin ided floor, a slight,  only a slight shiver went through  him, then his face grew: cold and  stern  once more. i  "The. matron tells mo you wish to  epeak to me," Katharine said hurriedly; and then, wjf.h a low cry, sho  shrank back with outstretched arms  against the. wall, while an agonized  murmur   brake    from   her    lips      of  "You 1   You 1"  There was a world of unconquerable misery in those two small words,  misery that was greater than sho  could   bear.  Ormande shivered again at what  he thought was her attitude of shame  nnd disgrace. He was silent a moment, and  then he spoike:  "Yes, it is 1. 1 thank Heaven that  ive have baen permitted io meet in  this strange way. I have bsen trying to find nn easy method of bringing us face to^ face and here it comes,  unsought, unasked." He lifted his  cold hand from the chairback. "Will  you not sit down?" he went on, In  his grave, stern, measured tones.thnt  si ruck so cruelly on her sensitive ear.  "I wish to speak to you, if you can  spare me a moment."  Katharine unloosened tbe lace  around her throat: she was even paler and thinner t-han when he had seen  her last. There wore marks of deep  anguish on her lovely face.  "Remorse has rollowed; she ca-n-  not be wholly lost wliile conscience  (still lives," was ormande's hurried  thought.  He came a step nearer.and brought  a chair forward, but Katharine shook  her head.  "I prefer to hear what you have to  say to me standing," was her answer,  in a voice that was weary and full of  bitter pain.  Ormande paused a moment, then  moistening his lips, be moved up to  ber, and came to a standstill just before her. : ��������� i ���������  His heart was beating madly, wildly. The task he nad set himself was  greater than he had supposed, but his  couraga did oot rail, nor his purpose  falter. .                                             :,  "Katharine," be sar'd, solemnly, but  with his deep love dwelling ,. in every  tone; "what have you done? My poor  girl!      My  poor  girl!"  A sob rose to ner tipsj but she choked it back.  Now the fulness or Gordon's; revenge rovse to conrront her in ali its  liideousness. She was dishonored in  Ormande's eyes: sue stood there seeming to him a snamerut thing, who  had wantonly nna���������wilCully- rushed into the path or sin. .She, Katharine  Brereton, the proud, pure spirit  whose record was as wbite, as blameless, as an angel's! Two or three  words would set nil tin's right, only  two or three wor<is, and yet she must  not��������� she dare not��������� utter them.  A shudder ran tcrough her at the  fiendish cruelty tnat had planned  this torture. From Barbara' Mostyn's insults she lln/t never w'n-ed.  She knew the girt to t>j her greatest  enemy, and therefore sbe exnected  nothing kin-d and sympathetic,though  even Gordon would nave heen startl-  could he bave heard tne avalanche of  abuse hurled at nts wife's head hy  his confederate. Sfc nad instructed  ���������Barbara to dismiss the. girl, to hint  at a flirtation witli j*er guest, and  to boldly tackle her on the question  of any understanding ftetween Katharine and himse-U. nut he did no: tell  ���������Miss Mostyn to-intutge her jealous  hatred and anger ������> far as to fcebave  like a thorough virago and a fish  fair. Barbara's insults had    fallen  off  Katharine's  proud    contemptuous  mind,  but  Ormande's  pity,  his  gravity,  his sorrow,  was another   matter:  it shattered the   rod, fry indifference  that     she    hnd.    wrapp'-d   round   lier  heart on tbe night she found she..was  "To- reave-Br^^re.r'atr/r���������fofiOv.--=ni*T=rfu:s--:-  band  to town; .even  hrs  ni-cidenl      at  Kuston  lmmedi.itety on    th"ir arrival  and Iris sufi   rings dfd not  ni^it It,bnt, j  Ormande's  voice p:<"-r."d    through    to ;  her   be.irt  of  hearts  and     rem       the  j  pitched   up  wound  asunder,    Kat bar-  i  ine    felt: her limbs    tremble  beneath :  be.ne.tth her as -sne leaned against  tiie  ;  wall.

Aye! fear me even  when I itm lyin-g stricken down ? Is  it because you know so well thai,  come what may, if you play me  false, I will carry out my revenge,  aye, even if it cost me my life?"  She knew he meant every letter  oif his threat; she knew it she were  to take advantage of this illness to  flip off her bonds and escape bim,  that so soon as the old vigor was  returned to Gordon's frame, he would  relentlessly seek out .Ormande, her  beloved, an'd work him ihe injury he  had sworn to do.  -But, apart rrom this, Katharine  was, in every sense, a true woman.  Evil as Gordon Smythe bad proved  ' himself to be in her life, no though I:  of leaving him, now this calamity had  fallen upon him, ever crossed her  mind. He was helpless and sick, and  her place tvas by his suta. No matter  what had. gone before, she could not  atid would  not desert  ltim  now.  The bi.sk was terribly hard; had  Katharine known how hard,she might  have hesitated beforo taking it up.  She had, in addition, the. natural  worry and anxiety connected with a  =scvero=i!

And as it began, so  it continued; frum one- and all, J-isler  Dora excepted, Katharine received  the barest courtesy, nrrd she lived in  tho. perpetual condition ot feeling  that sho was being degraded and debased before nil the world.

"Why, she was the very :n-  ler-Yi i-'g  inriiid    whom   Lord  Otwav  The Globe recently had a brief quotation from a letter written to The London  Times by a citizen of the United States  visiting his country after several years'  absence. Following are lengthier extracts from the communication, a decidedly Interesting one in. Its' way. In minutely analyzing America's future In tlio  world of trade the writer says :���������  "In tho matter of foreign trade, tho  manufacturer in America has definite aspirations Instead ot concrete ambitions.  He would like to trade with all the  world. He could not explain this aspiration, but he I might fall back upon his  belief ln destiny, which is as strong in  him as lt ls in a Mahommednn soldier,  whom death ln battlo carries into paradise. The American hus come to have  tho strongest faith in his gift for direction. He is convinced that other people,  somehow, are losing that power, and he Is  convinced that It ls only a question of  time when the financial centre will bo  shifted to New York or Chlcagor He does  not take.Into account tho fact that he has  not yet developed a banking system flexible enough to adjust Itself to a commercial crisis."  Trades unionism, the writer declares,  has Weakened the United States, and  while the wages In skilled trades advance  those In unskilled trades decline.  Replying to a question as to how long  tho present period of prosperity Is likely  to continue, the writer says the general  feeling in the United States predicts lt  will last "until the next Presidential election is Bottled." He concludes with the  following remarks anent foreign trade :���������  To my mind nothing is clearer than that  whatever chances Americans hnd at one  time of getting slowly but surely a paying foreign trade ln manufactured products have been lost I for the present:  (1) Through ignorance in not knowing  and not learning the conditions existing  in  foreign countries.  (2) By trying to make a place for their  products ln crowded communities, whoso  peoples have great experience and ample capital. Instead of ln outside or neutral markets.  (3) By inability to seek cor talte thc advice of those who knew or who had the  chance to know.  (4) By lnopportuneness of effort, and, as  if these were not enough���������,  (6) By rushing blindly into combinations,  many of which are purely speculative, and  then proceeding to advertise all over tho  world their intention to take everything  and leave nothing for anybody else. This  thundering in Index has not left much tor  the text to say or threaten, and little for  the authors to do.  These, however, are mistakes that will  be overcome ln time. When the home  demand declines, when prices and profits  both In America and everywhere oise  have come down to their natural level,  when half or three-fourths of the so-  called, trusts have gone to the wall 1'ke  other speculative companies, and, finally,  when the overweening desire for publicity  and advertising has given way to a careful study of the conditions In ihe four  quarters of. the globe, then will American  competition become profitable to itself  without being of necessity hurtful or dun-  gerous to tbe industries of other c run-  tries.  Tariff Changes.  The  market   for   United   States   cattle  nnd^meats_ ln_*_France is now virtually  closed, the French Government having-  made changes In tho tarilf which form an  even moro serious embargo on American  meats declared by Germany several  years ago.

JOHN LLOYD LEE. D. D��������� Ta*tor  Westminster Presbyterian Church,  New York City.  Take ye away the stone.���������St. John, xl.,  ta.  . On the one side of the stone door of  Ifazarus' tomb stood the dark messenger we call death ; on the other, the  mighty King of all life ; for Lazarus  had been dead four days, and Christ  had come to undo the work of death  and to give to the young man thc most  precious of all gifts���������that is, life.  He who had created the worlds and  had kept them in right relations  through all the ages so tlrat they go  singing on their journey could have  hurled that stone away with a word.  But, since he was working from the  human, side, Hc must needs respect  human conditions and give man a share  iff His glorious work and also a chance  to learn the lessons ot His great life  on earth, for Christ's mission was not  so much to make eternal impressions  on matter on the outer world, as to  make impressions on mind���������the human  soul.  It happens, then, that the chief service of man to his fellow-men is to  clear away difficulties that the Divine  Person and power may work, as on  that day human hands bad to roll away  the stone from before the tomb that  Lazarus might feci the thrill of life.  Difficulties arc of - various kinds, but  all alike prevent the free working of  divine power in thc soul. A non-con-  ducter has come between God _ and  man, and this must be removed from  tlie human side because oi human sin.  This is why Christ came around from  the side of divinity to the side of humanity, bringing His divinity ^yith  Him to give eiifcctiveiicss to salvation.  The business or discovery in the natural worid is to clear away hindrances  and to make channels for forces which  were long ago reposed in nature right  under our hands and .so near that they  actually touch us. Just as the great  discoveries in electricity consist in  giving direction to that mighty power  that it may become a thing of service  rather than a means of destruction, so  the chitjf business of religion is to clear  away the difficulties in the divine path  s'j that God may work naturally in  the hearts of men. Martha was unhappy in the incident of thc text because she was not willing to make  way for the full working oi the power  of God. Most of the.unhappiness of  the world is on the same account.  Every day we pass by a thousand  graves of buried hopes of other people  and never once stop to see if we may  roll away the stone that the light of  God may shine in to give life to thc  dead.  How wonderful it would be if wc  could fully realize that Christ stands on  the human side of every trial and every  trouble and every disappointment and  every sin and says :���������"You do youi  part and I" will do Mine I You remove all that the human hand can  take away and I will banish the rest,  as with a word I put death to flight al  Lazarus' tomb." It may not be much  that you can do, but if it is ever so  little it must be-done before the divine  power can work. The world can nevci  be made- better without positive effort The cheerful face, the willing  heart, the forgiving spirit, .the helping hand and the godlike purpose  make the journey of life a grand  march of triumph.  But we are also to remove the stone  oi indifference. Many people were  there that day who did not seem to  care much whether Lazarus ever lived  or not ; and even Martha seemed indifferent to any effort on the part of  the Saviour. So we find in the world  to-day the hcad-shaWing and hand-  wringing people who say :���������"It will do  no good; there is no use in trying."  It is your place and mine to lift hard  at this world's weight of sorrow that  the resurrection power of God may  give life to a dead world. Martha  and those who- were wilh her have  taught us how wc may roll away the  stone of unbelief and have the power  _of- new_and_gr:eatcr lifc_;_ for_^_when_  they hesitated and doubted Hc asked  "Said  I  not unto   thee   that   if thou  wouldst .believe thou shouldst see'the  glory of God ?"  Then can we not see the glory Oi  God without believing? No, we  ;annot. It is the only way. There  ii many a dark grave of departed faith  sealed forever because, we do not believe enough to'reach out a hand ti������  help. There are thousands of theni  in this city.  When tliey believed and removed the  stone, what matchless glory did tliey  see I It is only-by faith that you may  sec the glory of God. When wc hear  that an astronomer has discovered a  new comet we do not read that hc  found it with the unaided eye. He  saw it with his telescope long before  the rest of us knew anything about it.  When a man announces a mighty  truth of God, that he has seen its  beauty and felt its power, though we  do net see it, we know that it has been  made known to him by the wonderful  reach and revelation pf-faith. When  , we were in the observatory searching  for the stars and could trot find them  the teacher said :���������-"Get the focus ; see  that you are on the right line of vision;  then  ypu  will  see."  Then do we in religious things turn  md ask :���������"What has the focus to do  with it? Can I not sec ?

During the last three years considerable effort has been made to find a  means by whicli the odor and taste of  wild onion and bitter .wood may be removed from milk and cream. In the  spring of igoi, the writer was requested to try a patent compound claimed  to remove all kinds of weedy taste  from milk, but it proved to be an absolute failure. Cooking soda (salera-  tus) was also given a like trial, uut failed of the purpose claimed for it by  some people. Having failed so far  to find anything that when fed to the  cows would remove ivcecry taste in the  sntlk, the next step was treating the  milk and cream. Bitter weed taste  was removed entirely from cream by  thoroughly mixing it with two nr  more parts o������ water at any temperature above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and  then running the whole through the  separator. Saltpetre dissolved in water  was tried as an aid in removing the  bitterness, but as good results wcrf.  secured without it as with it. Rapidly  and slowly heating milk and cream to  various high temperatures did not remove bitterness, but often imparted a  cooked taste. Butter made from  washed cream (as above) was pronounced free of all bitterness by thc  station customers. Buller made from  unwashed cream wns decidedly bad anc!  was often rejected by the customers.  No means were found lo remove thc  bitter \yccd taste from whole milk. In  the spring of 1902 milk and cream were  treated for tlie wild onion flavor the  same as in the previous year for the  bitter weed taste.���������Alabama Agricultural Experimental Station.  "Smoked" Glasses for Hay Fever.  A number oi remedies have been  tried for hay fever, each based on a  separate theory. Dr. Frank E. Stow-  (.11 of Worcester, Mass., himself a victim, became satisfied that the irritating cause was not always thc pollen  ���������of a plant. While hunting around for  another source of trouble, hc came io  suspect that the actinic rays of, sunshine mii;lu be to blame. Thereupon  he put on colored, or "'smokcu. jias-j-  cs, and obtained instant relief. Hc  is anxious now to have others do the  same and report the effect. Inasmuch  as his own trouble is of the early summer variety, he is not sure what thc  effect would be an cases of autumnal  hay fever. Dr. Slowell gives these additional hints about fitting the glasses :���������  "The patient snould feel a sensation  of relaxation cbme over his face as  scon as he looks Ihrough thc glasses.  And I would suggest that the shads  ot. glass used be such as .to produce  the above. In my case No. 3 was sufficiently dark."  Colic in Horses.  Dr. Smead, the veterinary authority,  writes regarding colic in horses :���������  "It is of great importance in thc  treatment of colic to first ascertain  what has brought on the attack. If it  is due to the consumption ��������� of a quantity of dry food and there is reason  to believe there is a hardened mass of  dry, undigested feed in the intestines,  common sense will tell us that this  mass needs to be removed.  "Therefore, more is needed than  stimulants. Physic is demanded. An:!  what shall this physic be? Shall it be  aloes? No, because they increase the  secretions of the mucous .membranes,  and are so far good, but not sufficient  to wet up that dry mass..  What then'shall it be? Oil, oil. oil  every time, sufficient to soften up and  emulsify this mass of dry food. How  much? it may be asked. It is difficult to say.  "Start with a pint of pure raw linseed oil' (never boiled). Give with a  round teaspoonful of ginger, and it  there is much .pain add an ounce ot  sulphuric ether, or half an ounce of  hydrate of chloral dissolved in water  and  added.  '  "In an hour repeat and continue to  repeat until there is a -natural rumbling of the bowels.  "Also use thc syringe by injecting a  gallon of warm, soapy water in the  rectum, and .repeat hourly until the  pain succumbs or a passage is made.  In bad cases wring clolh out of hot'  water and apply to the abdomen.  "In cases where the attack may be  due to the consumption of a quantity  of sqft_fqqd o������ to drinking much cold  water, digestion is in a measure stopped, and certain gases are formed by  chemical action.  "Nothing will better neutralize the  gas thus generated than half an ounce  of carbonate of ammonia dissolved in  a pint of water and noitrcd down from  a bottle. This will relieve the bloat,  and can be repeated hourly.        .  "Also, if the.pain is severe, give the  hydrate of chloral as before recommended with the ginger, and repeat if  necessary* every half hour until the  pain is relieved."  Rains and snows,assist to a .certain  extent in adding fertility to the soil.  Jn one. year rains bring down about  four_ pounds- of ammonia per acre.  Nitricacid, chlorine, sulphuric acid and  ammonia are all brought to the ground,  though the amounts arc not large.;  Eulwer Lytton's Centenary.  The centenary of Emerson's birthday waa also that of. Lord Lyt-  ton, who is better known to-day by  "The. Last Days of Pompeii," perhaps, than any of his twenty-seven  novels. That this remarkatriy versatile  writer was also poet, play wright,-social  critic, journalist, essayist, editor, orator,  statesman, pamphleteer, is well-nigh forgotten. - It ls safe to say that he has  never been regarded seriously as a literary force. In his own .day he was subjected to criticism that was undisguised*  ly savage. One of the worst offenders  was Thackeray, who poked fun most unmercifully at "Sawedwadgcorgcearllitn-  bulwig." The "English Men of Letters"  and "Great Writers" series omit Lord  Lytton, and lie has been steadily ignored  by tho essayists and critics. Only ow  other writer of equal pretensions lias  been so relentlessly neglected, the author  of "Vivian Grey" and "Kndymion" and  other portentously political" and social  novels of English life. Mr. Lewi3 Melville, in an article in "Temple Bar" f������r  May, wrestles vigorously with Lytton's  ease to raise him out of this urrSeernly  obloquy, but the task is beyond him. We  know of two prominent magazines, whoso  editors were approached some time ago  with mamorial papers on the novcHst'b  centennial, who promptly refused to give  them a place in their pages. Yet it is  claimed that Lytton's novels; are rend  by hundreds of thousands, and rival  those of Dickens in popularity.  Mr. Melville lays liis linger almost unwittingly on tiie chief defect of Lord  Lytton's work. "A w.ork of imagination  may be fantastic," he says, "but if it  deals with life it must necessarily be  true or untrue to life, and if it is untrue  it cannot be accepted as a work of art."  The worst kind of immorality in fiction  is the falsification of facts, thc perversion of truth. Lord Lytton began by infusing into his early novels an extravagance of ,pseudo sentiment and faulty  psychology which created a false sympathy for the vicious and criminal. So  warped and twisted was his view of life,  so confused -his understanding of right  and wrong, so lacking in moral insight  and clear-eyed apprehension of motive  and emotion, that he ^actually defended  his "honesty of purpose," and claimed  "sincere and distinct views of promoting  truth and administering to knowledge"  ���������a. claim wholly unwarranted by the  facts. Wlat would -seem to be the can-  kerworm in Lord Lytton's character led  to the cardinal fault in his work, the insincerity of the man. One of his contemporaries who discovered a goodness  of heart in the novelist, for which few  who-knew him even well gave him credit,  deplored his fondness^for personal metamorphoses, so to speak. "One day," it  is related of him, "he would appear in  black from top to toe, with a dark-  complexioned visage to match. Another  day he would be all brown, and on n  third, he would be -all in white, with  blond hair and-a-fair complexion lighted  up by rouge 1"'-Carlyle, who derided the  dandiacal l'elham in "Sartor Kesartus,".  always spoke -with contempt of its author; Uie sad,.earnest. eyes of the seer'  =aw through the pitiful humbug���������������������������"a.poor  fribble," was .Carlyle's , epithet. Mrs.  fjarlyle, more rplain-spoken, and a chain- ���������  <pion of the novelist's wife in her marital  grievances,-called him "a lanthorn-jawetl  quack!". All this is not to say that Bul-  wer Lytton did not do good work and.-  that he had no remarkable gifts. Espe-;  cially in, his later novels, there are passages and characterization that j-each^n  high level. .But the acid,of insincerity  ���������and flamboyancy bit into the fibre of hia  work and made it meretricious as litera*  ture and worthless as art.

The fact was that Worthington, the  bright young clerk in whom Mr. Stringer  had hitherto taken such a fatherly interest, had fallen away so in his work of  late that something had to be done  about it.

Filings, of'course, could not go on in this  way.  The head of tire linn-rang a bell.  "Tell Mr. Worthington," ho said to tiro  boy, "tlrat I desire to ace him."

If so, I rrm  afraid we shall have to get someone to  fill your place."  Worthington started. The deep flush  thnt spread over his face bore evidence  of Iris feeling.  "You aro right, sir," he stammered. "I  shall have to do better. I will do better."  "May I ask," said Mr. Stringer, "what  has been the cause of your deterioration?   I hope iL is not dissipation."  "Oh, no, sir! If yon will excuse mi'  from the office for arr hour or so, I think  I can produce sufficient evidence to the  contraiy." ,  "Very well, sir: you mny go."  About an hour later, the negligent  clerk one more entered the private oflice  of his employer..  This time, however, lfe was not alone.  "Allow me, sir," lie snid, simply, "to  introduce to yen the cause of my roocrrt  mistakes���������my future wife."  Mr. Stringer nrose to liis feet, and  looked curiottsly down at the beautiful  young girl who s.tood smilingly before  him. Then he turned to Worthington.  as he clasped her irand in his.

It is a passing quip, and bound soon to yield to  freckles and tun, and whon it does so  yield tho practice of dropping into  church without n hat will go with it.  St. Paul himself could well distinguish  between essentials and inessentials, for  after setting forth hi3 views about covered heads for women and for men, does  he not say, "But if any man seem to be  contentious we have no such custom,  neither the churches of God." Which  was saying in effect thut, after all, the  question wasn't worth disputing over.  A kindred question has come up���������so  the papers say���������in Vermont, where a  young woman who expects soon to be  married objects to promising to obey her  future husband, and has been looking fot  a clergyman who will leave "obey!' out  of the marriage service which is to make  her a wife. She has found one, but no<  in her own church. All the same, it will  make little practical difference whether  she promises to obey or not. If she marries a man worth obeying she will obey  at a pinch, and be glad of the chance.  The husband still ranks as the head oi  the family, and though cases are common where he is not really in command,  the happiest families are those in which  he is equal to his job. It is not ant  word of Scripture, or law, or a promist  in the marriage service that makes*tin  husband the senior and ruling partner  but nature and the force of cireurn  stances.  Moreover, the fear'which some youny  women have of having to obey a hus  band is just a bugaboo. As things tun  out there- is division of responsibility  and therefore of authority.
