EVERYBODY WELCOME  POPLAR SREEK  IS ALL RIGHT  Notwithstandifig Futile Efforts  of British' ������tdlumbia Mining:  Record���������A  ^tich  and   Pros-  perous Mining Camp.  . - . 1. .  In an Interview, with   XV.   B.   Pool  a    reporter  of  the j Herald    took  occasion to caH'ttai- attention   of that  gentleman to the .savage assaults upon  him personally; anil i upon   the great  mining  corporatioh   known   as   The  Oreat   Northern TMines,   L,td., which  have from time  to-time  appeared in  the British Columbia Alining   Record,  a journal which   InT'.pulrlihhed at Victoria   in   the   interests -solely   of the  owners, re"giii*dles<*r-������>f- the interests  of  British Columbia,- in general  aud the  Kootenay country in particular.     To  the man of the world, especially of the  world journalistic,.there is  something  sinster in the* bitter phrasing  of   tbe  Record which* is suggestive perhaps of  blackmail   and'in*', thr; methods of its  caustic and reckles.*!'editor.     And yet  he   may   possibly  lie  sincere  in   his  animadversion   against Mr.   Pool and  that gentleman's associates, men who  are every da*y oft heir lives accomplishing more for   the 'advancement  and  progress of this great  Piovince  than  the puny calamity-howler of the B. C.  Mining .Record ever did or could do in  all his life..    Let.  him  learn,   even at  this late  date,   tlifit   the   way  to the  hearts of the people; the road to prosperity,     the   royal   arteries   through  whi-.li run and pulsate the  strenuous  impulses of nohle and lofty endeavor,  of integrity, of honesty,   of  purity of  purpose lies   not  thrdugli  regions of  malice, envy, disparagement or senseless   l-abble.        Notwithstanding   the  futile efforts of the 'Record to   belittle  the matchless mineral resources of the  Kootenay   country;.;. Poplar    Creek,  Ferguson and the Jjardcau distiicts   it  is all in vain in the~f-(ce of the,fortunes  which are yielding   themselves   up.to  the intelligent, persistent, courageous  and hai-d-working prospectors who -in  the early days pinned their unswerving " faith   to   tKe   belief  that   in the  districts referred to there was gold   iu  abundance, * gold,* propositions .'"of ex-  ceptional.richness, rgold   plastered on  the rocks for- the '- woi Id -to   look "at,  with millions in "silver -alongside * to  f   Queen   Statlily  to 'King   Gold,  he   stalwart    confidence   of    these  pioneers has been and is being royally  rewarded. : Can   the   Record    deny  that?     The   Provincial -Mineralogist  can't  deny   that if, he   would.    Even  werehetoattem-itsticharidiculousfeat  in the face  of ** incontrovertible   facts  that stare the honest*, and expert in  vestigator in the face���������aye, even -were  he to repeat the oracular report which  he made after his hurried official  visit  to what-is  destined   to   become the  greatest mining camp the  wide world  over.    In another  column   are  some  interviews with practical miners which,  will enlighten and ought to   interest  the sapient editor of the B. C. Mining  Record.     They   contain   solid truth,  unembellished   with   anything   other  than facts.   The  hopeless .������������������: and   mad  attempt to besmirch the reputation* of  Mr. Pool will prove.* a   boomerang  to  Tbe B. C. Record.   J The   indomitable  coin-age of that gentleman   for  years  past in standing unflinchingly by  his  superb faith in; the   richness   of . the  district which, he has been so potential  in exploiting and developing has compelled   the   admiration   of   the   most  envious   of   his    detractors.      There  appears to lie a clique of mining men  on the coast, who are silly enough to  think that the rush to the wonderful  Kootenay mineral districts is inimical  to their interests.   The stale and shallow   columns   of _the.JJ*;jD.^ Record  furnish them with suitable entertainment, therefore, as from   the   fecund  imagination of  its editor, columns of  invective and abuse nre poured upon  all who darn to tell to the world the  wondrous story of the imperial mining  districts of North Kootenay.    *  STRUCK IT  VERY RICH  Police Court  .Before Lindmark and Coi-don J.  P's., on Wednesday night. R. Desmone  charged Thomas Hugh with assault at  the C. P. R. shops. The evidence was  most conflicting and as a' result the  chai'ge was dismissed.  L. A. Fretz ivas charged before the  same J. P's with dischmgiiig flra arms  within the city limits. He pleaded  guilty and was fined $10 and costs.  A further charge was laid against  Fretz for shooting a dog belonging* to  H. P. Jones, lie pleaded guilty to  this charge also and was fined $40 and  costs and received a free lecture as to  how.he should conduct himself in the  future in the handling of fire arms.  John Smallwood, nn . ex-army man,  turned himself loose in Bourne's store  last Friday night and raised a row  with Alex. Hobson and was promptly  thrown out in the street where he  again assaulted Hobson and Thomas  Lewis. Meantime Chief Bain was  sent for and met the man running  away. He told the,man that -he  wanted him;.whereupon Smallwood  struck at the Chief and ; kicked him.  Chief Bain carries a "Billy" and gave  Mr. Smallwood an introduction to  "Billy" which laid him out for a time.  He appeared before Gordon and Mc-  Lauchlin J. P's, on Tuesday and got &  months "hard" for his trouble. Tho  action of the magistrates is to be commended because these tough men must  be given to understand that they cannot do as they like in Revelstoke.  Messrs. Goodrow and Vincent have  opened up a restaurant on McKenzie  Avenue in the stand formerly occupied  by H, Manning.  A Talk With One of the Discoverers and Owners of the Swede  Group.���������The Property of the  Great Northern Mines. ���������  About twenty-four years ago nn  industrious and highly intelligent  Swede emigrated to America with  little else than his brains and brawn  as capital. But these' he determined j  to make good use' of; - His name is  Henry Magnuson; at "present a resident of thc Kootenay country and  interested in great mining propositions. The illimitable forests of  Wisconsin attracted him lirst and h������  worked in the lumber camps for  Winslow Staples, the famous millionaire of that state, for several years;  earning and laying by good money.  Thence he wandered to Minnesota, but  after a brief stay there he struck out  for Dakota* and prospected for gold in  the Black Hills, near Deadwood. Gold  was to be found in other sources than  those of mother earth, be soon dis-1  coveied and accordingly he went toj  work on the Great Noil hern railroad,  puttnig in culverts and taking out  ties, continuing in the same business  iif Washington where he also took  sub-contracts grading for. the same  company. Receiving an j excellent  opportunity to go into gardening he  trough!, land at Lea ven woith, the too'  of the Cascades, built an elegant home  upon it and outbuildings to mutch  and in supplying the camps of that  vicinity which, were then booming,  made money rapidly,, But when the  Alaska excitement came there was tn  stampede from these camps, and  Magnuson resolved to trek, to Skag-  way. That trip cost hiin, in addition  to loss of time, aliout $800.. . Returning to British Columbia hc worked  again ut railroading on the Columbia  Western lailroad, then building from  Robson to Midway.' Tiring of this he  Irecjiure once more a. gold) prospector  for two years in the Kdrttle River  country: leaving there ih,, lflOO und  settling in the famous Lardeau district where he took tie contracts .with  the C. P. R. Co. for somtj time and  finally located the Handy * Group -at  Ger<u*d.--Ayearvago ��������� Magnuson -and  his partners, made a deal with Col.  Brayton. of Dulutb. Minn.,, for these  propositions* receiving out of $300,000  worth bf shares, his portion ' 83,333  shares which, are now quoted at"**15*J  cents, but which will ultimately.becom-S  very valuable. Mr. Magnuson. Ben'  Lawson and Eric Sternd, subsequently  located a claim named the Gold Bug/  near Magnuson's properties. Tbey hita  other valuable propositions, Gold Hill  and Goldsmith, which W. B. Pool  bought on terms satisfactory tn all  parties concerned. These mines are  very promising, Mr. Magnuson und  his partners still retain the Gold Bug  and have great confidence in its future.  It has been surveyed by. the Provincind  Surveyor and next spring extensive  development operations upon it will  begin for which the owners have  ample capital in hand. They have  interests also in Tenderfoot and Poplar  Creek, which are very attractive. Tlie  lost named district is in Mr. * Magnuson's opinion phenomenally rich and  will ere long become : the greatest  gold mining camp in the world. The  intelligent prospector will here hnd  himself better ie warded for his* toil  and experience thnn in any other campTT  On Lake creek, opposite from Poplar  creek and across the Lardo river there  has been but little prospecting done  but all signs point to a rush to that  country in the spring. If the government could be persuaded to imild a  bridge'across the river and a_trai|  through thiH^iinu'vellously^rich district, making' it easily accessible and  available for transportation of ore and  freight, Mr.' Magnuson is positive  Poplar Creek and adjacent districts  would beat the-world's records as a  mining' camp. "^ And his opinion is  endorsed by*!-all competent bulges  l'amilirtr with that country the Provincial Mineralogist to the contrary not-  withsanditig.. Mr. Magnuson will  spend the win ter in 'Los Angeles, Cal.  In the pleasant shades of orange groves  our Swedish miner will enjoy a well  deserved rest, ' Referring to the extra  ordinary success .which has attended  the cffnrtH of W. B. Pool, Mr. .Magnuson suid that that gentleman could  not fail of success in almost anv pursuit, owing* to the patience, persistence  and tinrememitting energy which, he  put into his work. Moreover, said  Mr. Magnuson, Mr. Pool's example  and personal magnetism has been an  inspiratlon'to many other prospectors  who it-juicu today in the possession of  rich properties which, were it not for  thc advice and encouragement given  them by that gentleman, would in all  piobability never have passed into  their hands.  / * ������^i -^ *i$i> ���������*������$������ t<^ i$> -^n^n^> ^ d^ (t^ i^ *$i i$t> *i$m|> ������$^ -^ c^ ^> ������(^i -h^it t^>������ ���������*!> t^g-i  BOURNE BROS.5  ty Hay, Oat*, Bran, Shorts, Feed Wheat,  Flour, Rolled Oats, Etc.

The physician is generally considered  to be rather a poor business man, and  his history in Toronto compels us to assert that he is not a good gambler. The  historian tells us that all peoples, of all  shades and colors, "amble, but the biggest piunger of the lot is the Anglo-Saxon, "because of his superb vital lite-  force." We incline chiefly to three  forms: horses, cards and stock margins.  Tbe gambler at the Woodbine hns a  good time for a couple of weeks; has his  ups and downs, and, of course, comes out  short at the end of the races. He doesn't mind, however, if he has had lots of  fun, and he goes to work with the laudable aim of saving something for the  next races. Card gambling is less healthy.  The player works at night in a room  which becomea close nnd stuffy, and  generally smoke3 nrrd drirrks too much.  Neither of these forms of gambling is  considered correct; neither meets with  the approval of the clergy.  Stock gambling is really the only form  that is eminently respectable. Here the  doctor can work shoulder to shoulder  with thc preacher, the elder, tho church  warden, U'e class-leader, the widow and  orphan, or the fellow who has the willow's and orphan's money. We understand that the preacher is more scientific in his methods than the innocent doctor, and becomes therefore the shrewder  speculator; he knows more ahout.selling  short. We learn from experts that in  stock margin gambling it is more satisfactory to sell what, you haven't got  than to buy what you don't get.  Of course, in the long run, the large  dealers capture the pots. They then become great philanthropists, pillars of  churches, and by eommon consent occupy the highest seats in Ui������ synagogue.  Occasionally, however, even the top-  notchers come to grief, but .strong influences' come to their rescue, the press  loudly proclaims that they are men of  undoubted integrity.' The banks help  them in various ways and assume an  "attitude" tliat has a "reassuring effect.':'  In troublous times things sometrmes be  come unhinged, but guidually "stability'  comes. This is well explained in a cei  tain instance in one of the leading paporr,  as follows "The cause making for stn  bility is tho fact that many weak hold  ers have been wiped out, and their places  taken by strong interests, fully able to  protect themselves" The devil ma^  take care of the small holdeis, the press,  the banks, and the people in high places  don't bother much about them  Stock fever has been  endemic amonir  the physicians of Toronto for  the lust  twenty five  years     Our  profession   fui  nisihes a fine share of the "small denleis"  who are necessary  for the game     Duf  fin's Creek,  Hogs'  Hollow   and  JMnnieo  stocks are put on the market at a suit  able time.

' tried to mislead tbe public, but. be lias  not correctly studied either* the old  nets or tire rrew. I Ie Iras not attempted to verify his figures, relating tc. the  taxes payable under the former nits  just repealed. His illustrations fruni  the riots '.tire accordingly absolutely  erroneous and. therefore, his comparisons are not. merely misleading,  but worthless. If bo bad taken tlio  slightest, trouble to acquaint himself  with ibe laws ���������under' which business  men have been paying taxes for years,  tlie author ul' the document, would  bave been t^e last man to promulgate  such a I'ai'i-ago of misstatements.  Por the pur-pose of enlighl nirrg the  general public, we. will .state the law  lis (o the taxation of perMinal property  and income in this Province-is it existed up to the I inre when tbe new act  came into force, on ibe Ut,b instant.  All personal property and income  were liable lo taxation, subject, to  cei-laiu exemptions. Tbe exempt ions  were: (1) Income of every person up  to $1,000: (2) Hus income of n fanner  derived from his J'arni and lire income  of merchants, mechanics or- other  persons derived from capital, liable to  assessment: (T!) mi rniirMi ol* tbe  personal properly of any poison as  was equal to the jubt. debts owing Iiy  him ou account of the purchase price  of snid personal pr-opcil.y to the vendor  of s*yd personal property: (11 tbe net,  personal properly of any person up u>  iSIIll; (.">) household elVects of whatever kind, books nnd wearing apparel.  Section G B of chapter ,">(". section 7  of lhe .statutes of lildl. explains the  method of arriving at ihe taxable property or income, wheie the income is  derived 1'vorrr personal propoviy. the  Province taking whatever tax should  be the greater.  Before showing the errors made in  the famous schedule, it is also  necessary to know just what the former Assessment Acts described as  personal estate. Section 2 of chapter  21 of tbe Amendment Act of 11M������.  which was in force in May last, derbies  personal property as including al!  goods, chattels, wares, merchandise,  effects, stocks, bonds, debenture***,  .securities. _ _  investments. (except  \i stuck aird book debts, or is the capital  * j exist irrg iir some other form. No sane  i | merchant could carry on business with  v- la stock of $l."i0.000 and book   debts   of  'V   1  $l.-.!l.l.00*-niid if the capital (which is  also personal property) existed in  addition to the stock in trade and book  debts, then be ought to have paid  taxes on :?:-S75,tK)0. or $1,675 instead of  lire !**.!7,*i, of the Tillies* allusion.  The olher illustrations of onr contemporary, being based upon wrong  foundations, it is un necessary to expose their errors mul the fallacious  reasoning which runs through the  schedule and the.Times' article.  If any person will, however, take  the trouble the trouble to make up a  statement, of the russets and liabilities  of the merchants referred to in the  illustrations given in tbe schedule, he  will Iind that the taxable property in  each case is quite different from what-  the schedule tries to bring out. Upon  the assumption, however, that tin.'  lowest tax payable by the merchant  on personal property wa.s j** 1,125, a  person who owned real estate to lire  same value.(!ji22.,),tK)l)) would bave paid,  under the old acts, $1 ,'������>(). and under  tbe new act, tlris inequality is done  away with, as both merchant arrd real  estate owner pay an equal fax on  eqiral investments. Thus, on .4)225,000  personality the tax is (less discount)  $2.02.-). and orr tt^Tj.OOO ol" really the  the tax is *2.02.*i.  The real cause for this calamity  howling is that some taxpayers, under  the old   acts, paid  loo little, some not.  even   what   thev   should   bave   dorre  i ���������  legally, arrd now t.hal no discrimination is made bet wuon owners ot' real  esfateand owners of personal property,  sorrre few, but, active persons among  Ibe lat (cr arc resorting to tactics  which are rrot patriotic, but inimical  lo tbe best interests of the Province.  The increase in taxation now imposed should not be unduly bui'deiisoioe  to any peiv-on or class o[ persons iu  tbe Province, nnd although the increase is higher on personal than on  real property, Hint arises from the  fact that, they were unequal before,  but are now made equal.  Xo taxation act ever devised in any  part of the civilized world has been  faultless, perfect, equality in taxation  is, humanly speaking, impossible, and  it. is not claimed thai, tbe present act  is perfect. Under it tbe incidence of  taxation is neaier equality than under  any former- act of this Province.  The Times and tbe Victoria Hoard  of Trade ought, lo be sure of their fact.-,  before attempting thus to'criticize,  and we are quite Mire that tbey will,  on calm, reconsideration, regret having published abroad such doleful blue  ruin complaint.--, injurious to the Province and everyone in it.���������Victoria  Colonist.

Pliiladelpliiana  rein-ember well the pretty rosy-faced  Ava Willing, who, ln a severe black  habit, hor satiny hair caught up un-de**  riding cap with a black ribbon, galloped through Fairmont Park every  pleasant winter afternoon.  At tennis she was always proficient  To-day she plays as sirong a Kamo  as a man. Every Wednesday afternoon, last winter she and her husband  spent in the tennis court of the tennis  building. She delights in singles, and  rarely fails in beating her opponent.  She makes the prettiest sort of a picture In her white tennis shoes and a  tenuis suit of black, which neatly escapes her ankles.  Last summer her feats In the water  excited the envy of many a timid belle  at Newport She is a most accomplished and fearless swimmer, and  when ln the water wears black silk  tishts under her skirt, because they  give hor unrestricted liberty of limb.

A part  of the sum is no go as a bonus to th9  Government, the remainder to serve  as a fund for the improvement of the  ground and for the purchase of prizes  for successful participants. In this  latter respect the modern Olympic  games will differ from those of ancient times, when the prizes were  honorary, not substantial.  One~of "the-greatest ^"disadvantages"  ���������f the modern Greek  Is  his lack  ol  physical and manual training, both ol  which have been sacrificed upon the  altar of excessive mental    training,  The  love of learning which  so  ton*  epicuoucly characterized    the Greeks  of old  is innate In their descendants  of to-day.   When Greece regained her  independence, more than sixty years  aeo.    and    the    entire    length    and  breadth of the land  was  smoldering  from  tho Turkish  firebrands,  one  of  *h������ Jlrst  Bteps of  its  Boule���������Its  national  council���������was   to assemble  under the olive trees of the Epidaurus  and fortunate plans for public education.

The language was to be modeled upon  tha Greek of St John's Gospel, and  thereby  purified  of- the    barbarisms  .which had been bequeathed to it by  cemturies of Venetian and Turkish oppression.

"Commodore" is simply the Italian  "Commnndntore." or comma rider, and  "naval cadet" was originally the French  "capdet." which, gnirrif a step further  back, has the same origin as the word  captain.

It happens, then,  that the chief scr-  *tce   of   man   to his fellow-men is   to  tlear away  difficulties  that  the   Divine  Person   and   power  may   work,  as   on  Scat day human hands had to roll away  the stone  from  before  the  tomb   that  fj^zarus   might  feel   the  thrill   oi  liie.  Difficulties   are  of   various   kinds,   but  till alike  prevent  the   free  working  of  iEvine power in the soul.     A non-conductor,   has   conic   between   God   and  man, and  this  must be removed  from  the human side because of human  sin.  SThis is why Christ came around from  the side ot divinity to thc side of  hu-  panity,    Lrirrging   His' divinity    with  Him to give effectiveness to salvation.  The business   ot" discovery in the natural world is to clear away hindrances  and to make channels for forces which  were long ago reposed in nature right  under our bands 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 nf service  rather than a means o? destruction, so  Ehe chiil l-.-isiness of.religion is to clear  "���������.way the.diitiurlties in the divine path  so  that   Giici  may Work    naturally   in  the hearts of.'men.    ���������'���������Martha was  uu-  Ersppy in, ���������the. incident of the text  because' she Was   not   willing   to   make  -way.-for'; the" full working of the power  of God.     Most of ihe 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 the  "Bead-" Hi- i-\  "How wonderful it would he if we  Could Folly realize that Christ stands on  ftbe human side of every trial and every  trouble and every disappointment and  every sin and says :���������"You do your  part and I will do Mine! 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 at  Lazarus' tomb." It may not be much  that you can do, but it it is ever so  tittle- it mu-st be done before the divine  power can work. The world can never  be made better without positive effort. The cheeriul face, the willing  faeart, the forgiving spirit, the helping hand and the godlike purpose  wake the journey of life a grand  ���������march  of  triumph.  But we are also to remove the stone  of 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.

"Dog ��������� watch" is another curious ea������e  of a term gradually corrupted oirt of its  original form. Originally it was "Dodge  watch," so described liccn use it la-sts  only two instead of the usual four hours,  and thus makes it possible that the same  men shall not be on duty every day during the same hours. "Dog v.-atclrcs," so  called, are from 4 to ti and C to 8 in the  evening.  Sailors call meat "junk." It is not n  complimentary term, for junk is nautical  for a rope's end. Some 3,000 years ago  ropes were made out of Tmllrusltes, for  which the Latin word is "juncus."  Nowadays" we talk of "porfand "starboard." Originally, it was "larboard" and  "starboard." Starboard has nothing to  do with stars. It is really "steor board,"  Anglo-Saxon for "steer side," because in  old galleys steered by an. onr. the oar  was fixed somewhat to the righthnnr]  side of the stern, and the helmsman  held the inboard portion in hia right  'rand;. As for ''larboard," it is prob  ably a corruption of lower board, the  larboard side being originally considered  inferior to thc other. ,;*  , "Sheet anchor" is the namo given .to  the largest -anchor* carried by a. vessel.  It is almost as complete a corruption ns  "dog watch." "Sheet J anchor" is really  "shote" anchor, so called because it can,  from its great weight, be easily shot out  in'ease of emergency. ..  Again," "jury mast" has nothing directly to do with a law ,court jury,  though both have come from the same  original word, "jour," the-French for day.'

During the last three years considerable effort has been made to find a  means by which the odor and taste of  wild onion and bitter weed may be removed from milk and cream. In the  spring of 1901, 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, ...ut 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 weedy taste in the  milk, thc next step was treating the  milk and cream. Bitter weed taste  was removed entirely from cre.un by  thoroughly mixing it with two or  more parts of water at airy temperature above 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and  then running the whole through the  separator. Saltpetre dissolved in water  was tried as an aid in removing tho  bitterness, but as good results were  secured without it as with it. Rapidly  and slowly heating milk and cream to  various high temperatures did nol remove bitterness, but often imparted a  cooked taste. Butter made from  washed cream (ns above) was pronounced free of all bitterness by the  [ station customers. Butter made from  unwashed cream was decidedly bad and  was often rejected by the customers.  No means were .found to remove the  bitter weed taste from whole milk. In  the spring of 1902 milk and cream were  ���������treated for thc wild onion flavor thc  same as in thc previous year for the';  bitter weed taste.���������Alabama Agricul  tural Experimental Station.  An Interesting Letter.  The Globo recently had a brlof quotation from a letter written to Tho London  Times by a citizen of the United Stales  visiting his country after several years'  absence. Following ure lengthier extracts from the communication, a decidedly Interesting ono in Its way. In minutely analyzing America's future in the  world of trade the writer says :���������  "In the matter of foreign trade, tho  manufacturer In America has definite aspirations instead of concrete ambitions.  He would like to trade with all thc  world. He could not explain this aspiration, but he might full back upon his  belief in destiny, which Is as strong in  him as it is In a Mahoinmedan soldier,  whom death in bairle carries into paradise. The American has come to have  tho strongest faith In his gift for direction. He Is convinced that other people,  somehow, are losing rhat power, arrd he Is  convinced that It is .inly a question ot  time   when   the   llnari.-l.-il   centra   will   ho  Lord Robert's Criticism.  shifted to New York or Chicago. He docs  not take Into account lho fact that he has  not yet developed a bunking system llex-  Ihle enough to adjust itself to a commercial crisis."  Trades unionism, rhe writer declares,  has weakened the Mulled States, and  while Iho wages in skilled trades advance  thr..*?e in  unskilled  irados decline.  Replying to a question as to how long  tho present period of prosperity Is likely  to continue, tire writer says the genera!  feeling In the United states predicts It  will last "until tlie next Presidential election is settled." He concludes with tho  following remarks ancnt foreign trade. :���������  To my mind nothing Is clearer than that  whatever chances Americans had at one  time of getting slowly but surely a paying foreign trade In manufactured products have been lost for the present:  (1) Through Ignorance In not knowing  nnd not learning lhe conditions existing  irr   foreign  countries.  (2) By trying to make a place for their  pi-oducts in crowded communities, whose  peoples have great experience and ample capital, Instead of In outside or neutral markets.  (3) By inability to,seek or take tbe advice of those who knew or who had the  chance to know.  (4) Hy innpportuneness of effort, and, as  if these were not enough���������     *  (5) By rushing blindly into combinations,  many of which nre purely speculative, and  then proceeding to advertise all over the  world their intention to take everything  nrrd leave nothing for anybody else. This  thundering in index has not left much lor  the text to say or threaten, and little for  tire  authors  to do.  These; however, are mistakes that will  be overcome tn time. When tho home  demand declines, when prices and profits  both in America and everywhere else  have come down to their natural level,  when half or three-fourths of Che so-  called trusts hav-,*. gone to the wn.ll l'ko  other speculative companies, and. fir-ally,  when the overweening desire for puhllcrty  and advertising has given way to a careful study of lire conditions in (.he four  quarters or tbe globe, then will Amei-k-a.n  comp2titinri become prolilnble to itself  without being of necessity hurtful or dangerous to the industries of other c luri-  trios.

Dr. Frank E. Stow-  ell of Worcester, Mass., himself a victim, became satisfied that thc irritating cause was not always the pollen  of a plant. While -hunting around for  another source of trouble, he came to  suspect that the actinic rays of sunshine might be to blame. Thereupon  he put on colored, or -"smokeo. ,(Uss-  es, and obtained instant relief. He  is anxious now to. have-other's do the  same aiid report the effect. Inasmuch  as his own trouble is of the early summer variety, he is not sure what thc  effect would be on cases of autumnal  hay fever. Dr. Stowell gives these additional hints about fitting the glasses :���������  "The patient should feel a sensation  of relaxation come over ins face as  soon as he looks through thc girisses.  And 1 would suggestc that the shade  of glass used be such as to produce  thc above. "In ray case No. 3 vvas sufficiently dark."  Colic in Horses.     .'" ���������   t'���������"  Dr. Smead, the veterinary authority,  writes regarding* colic Jin horses:���������,.  "It is of great importance in the  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 Tin the: intestines.  common, sense will tell.:us that this,  mass needs'to_be removed.  " Therefore, more is needed than  stimulants. Physic is demanded. And  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 ra^v linseed oil (never boiied). Give with a  round teaspoonful of ginger, and ii  there is much pain add an ounce of  sulphuric ether, or halt 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 the 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 cloth out of hot  water and apply to the abdomen.  "In cases where the attack may be  due to the consumption of a quantity  of soft food or to drinking much cold  "\vater,^.aTgcstioh"is in sTTirriisTfrtfTtop?  ped, 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 poured down irom  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  ipain is relieved."  Rains and snows assist to a certain  extent in adding fertility to the soil.  In one year rains bring down about  four pounds of ammonia per acre.  Nitric acid, chlorine, sulphuric acid and  ammonia are all brought to thc ground,  though the amounts are not large.  Banking the earth around fruit trees  will serve to protect the roots and also   _ __         ^      cause the water to flow away from the   glowing terms to the Madeira wine serv-  ttees,   thereby  preventing pools   from  fcrming around thc trees.   The ground  being kept  dry,  trees  wil*> "adure the  cold the better.  F. W. "Walker in The "London Dally Kx-  press of Sept. 19,wrote that J..orrt Tinbertfl  summed up his criticism with the conclusion that Sir Evelyn AVood, of the  invading army, had attained his object in  drawing (Jcneral French, who was defending ljondon, away from lhe south  coast. Therefore, while the latter prevented the advance on London via Heading, ho was attracted so far north by his  opponent that a larger invading force  might land on the southern coast today and march by a shorter route to  L.ondon.  Tho conspicuous figure of thc whole  maneouvr������s Is Brigadier-General dcobell,  who commands the 1st Cavalry Brigade at  Alderslmt. under Sir John French. This  officer haa shown leading of a high quality, and Lord Roberts has complimented  him before nil the seniors In conference.  Lord Roberta himself Issued the following remarks on Sept. 17 In regard to  the army manoeuvres:���������  ln (south (Vfrlca we wore wont to attribute most nf our fa llu ies in gaining information to thc Intimate knowledge of  the ground on thc pari of the Uoers, and  to their natural power of concealment.  Thes(i manoeuvres have, however, clearly  brought out the fact tlint- the increased  range of rifles, smokeless powder, and  tho nrentcr dispersion of troops will probably always cause extraordinary dlttl-  culty In obtaining Inforoiallon. Wo havo  had instances where n very small hi dy  or troops has been able, by concejliaerrt  and by rapid lire, lo induce tiro opposing  force to multiply th" estimate of their  strength  into   battalions,  or even   10  re-  frort ti squadron as b>*lng a brigade. This  s a point to which v. must pay particular attention  In   future,  arrd  officers employed ln reconnaissance must henceforth  be   prepared   to   take   greater   nsks   than  they have ever hitherto done, if they hope  to supply their commanders with reliable  Information.     A    greater    dispersion    of  troops under nro will still further accentuate the importance which mobility gives  to   cavalry   for   reinforcing  a   weak   spot  ln their own line, or of attacking a weak  spot in that of the enemy.   By an Intelligent use of the power of mobility, coupled  with a thoroughly expert use of the power given them by modern firearms, either  in delaying an infantry advance or in attacking   it  in   flank,   the   cavalry   of   the  future should accomplish great things.   I  am satisfied that in Mieso manoeuvres the  cavalry havo displayed quite as, much independence   or   initiative   as   I   expected  would have been tlio  case after our experiences in South Arrlea, and I think  if  cavalry  commanders  will   carefully   consider   what,   they   might   have   dono   and  weigh against i������  what they did do, they  will agree with me.   The condition of-the  artillory horses excited my admiration. I  was  much disappointed  to find  the guns  were so much  exposed.    There were exceptions,   but,   on   tho  whole,   there   was  practically vory little attempt at concealment, and In seve.ra.t cases batteries  neglected Infantry fire  In  a manner which  would   ha.ve   caused     (hern     unnecessary  heavy loss.    The  Infantry marching Was  admirable.     They   took   cover   well;   and  both   In   attack  nnd   defence  showed   the  great    improvement   in    the    training   of  -Ihat arm  as 11. rwult it err experiences  In Bouth Africa.  To Settle Differences.  Little credence haa been given to rumors that have appeared from time to  tlmo in European papers, to the effect  that the Mohammedans of Asia and Africa were making nn effort to sink tlieir-  differences, and present a united front  against the Inroads of Christianity. Tho  enmity between the two great sects of  Islam, the Sunni and the Slrla, has for  generations been as bitter and virulent  as that between any two branches of  Christendom at any (Ime in Its history,  and it would seem impossible that this  animosity could be quelled. Moreover,*:  tlrft Mohammedans have rro moans of Intercommunication, no religious newspapers, nor olher method or moulding public opinion and bringing scattered peoples to think alike on ���������any subject. The  great focus or intercommunication, tiro  Mecca pilerlmage, is losing its Influence.  Its numbers are steadily diminishing, nnd  last year It was altogether prohibited by  Government, on account of the plague.  It appears, however, says Public Opinion, that neither   missionaries   nor   publicists may have Blvon sufficient Importance to ona uniting force, the fraternities  which  are  rapidly  springing   Into  belne  among   Mohammedans.     Professor   Nnl-  lino of Naples has recently published ln  a Geneva paper an article upon the "Pro-  sent  Tendencies   of   Islamism."   treating  of tlteso fraternities ns a movement   demanding  serious  attention.     It    appears  that these orders existed a century ago.  but have been suspected and opposed by  orthodox Mussulmans,  who deemed (hem  to bo  opposed   by  the   Koran.    Even  ns  recently as 1S40 only about fi per cent, of  the Mohammedans of the Sahara belonged to them.   But the conquest of Algeria  and tbe ensuing contact with tlio abhorred "Roumis" (itonrnn Catholics or Christians)  not only aroused  a  new effervescence of zeal   through  all  Mohammedan  Africa., but gave a preponderant importance  to   the   hitherto   despised   fraternities.    Now,  Professor Nallrno says,  fully  95 per cent, of the Arabs of   North Africa are affiliated  with one or another of  those fraternities, and in all of them religious zeal is kept alive by hatred of the  Christians.    Thus   pan-Islamism.    which  even ten years ago was a mero Utopia,  may now Decome at almost any moment  a  reality.    It  would  suffice   for  half   n  score   of   the   great   chiefs,   meeting   at  Mecca at the time of the pilgrimage, to  agreo   upon   time   and   method,   nnd   all  Islam, from the Atlantic to tho Malayan  archipelago,  would  unite  ln an uprising  against Christians.

That  a change ln the discount rate of the liank  of England does affect the money markets in Berlin; Paris, Vienna and New  York, and tlrat It also affects the foreign:  exchange markets in each of these cities,  and often' causes an advance or decline  In their stock markets as well; Is known  to. everyone Interested , in tinnncial subjects. Why a change in the rate at which  a single bank Is willing to loan money  should liave finch a. world-wide effect,  however, is not generally .understood,  even In Wall street. . where brokers and  speculators make their living by their  Intimate knowledge of financial  subjects.  To understand, the Importance of the  Bank of England discount rate It must be  remembered ihat ljondon Is the financial  centre of the world.

Visiting Island of Tristan.  Douglas M. Gane. In nn article In The  Pall Mall Gazette, describing a visit to  tho Island of Tristan D'Acunha, lying  midway between Cape Horn and the  Cape of Good Hope, In tho very centre  of the south Atlantic Ocean, says:���������Some  hours elapsed before we hove to,*ofC. the  shore, und lt was a brave sight to see  tho settlers come off in their two whale-  boats. A tremendous swell was beating  up from thc southwest, and the small  craft Beemcd ever and anon lost in the  trough of the sea. The men hnd hardly  cared to cornc out In such weather, ihey  told us. but they had seen no ship for  six months nnd were greatly In want of  stores. Tlrey were a well-set-up body of  men, somo twenty In nil, and dressed,  the greater number of them, In blue  .dungaree and liomc-raado shoes or un-  tanned skin. Their Governor, Joseph  Tieeiham, a "Vorkshlreman. was of tho  typo of tho "grand old man." He. had  npent more than half his life on thc Island, and had no rnlnd lo leave lt. Tho  boats brought us Maniples of lho most  aeceplnblo things the place produced, a  quantity of blueflsh, nome wild pigs, and  merino sheep���������very diminutive, and fed  chiefly on grass nnd lish���������wild geese,  crawfish antl potatoes. We. gave them In  oxrhnngo flour, split peas nnd oatmeal,  biscuits, cocoa, eorrce and spirits. They  bad many curiosities with them, too, the  skins of birds and animals chletly. and  for Iheso we gave them old clothes and  underwear. Tbe ono thing they would  not take was money. They had no use  for 11; but a cake of scented soap or a  packet of Lobacco excited the" keenest  competition. One of them hoped to find  a wife among the passengers, and ������:  (linnppolnled to learn that no one was  willing to share his isolation.  Our Prison Systems.  The savagery of our prison systems, aa  they existed   previously   to  the   time  of  John Howard, says The Literary Digest,  appears  to  have  been   so   far  mitigated  that that gr������a.t prison reformer might bo  considerably astonished  If he could visit  some of our American ponal  institutions  of the present day.    Wc learn  from  the  Mississippi papers that it is no uncommon  thing  for*  convicts  who escape from  the  Mississippi-:..Penitentiary  to  the  inhospitable outside, world to come back nrrd ask  to be admitted again;  and  tho  Pennsyl-  varria  papers  aro  lilled  with accounts of  the   discovery   of   a   counterfeiting;   plant  that has been running for months in the  Eastern Penitentiary, in Philadelphia, and  which had escaped tho notice of; the prison attendants.   IL had escaped their norico  so completely, indeed, so the papers say.  that*, they ��������� unsuspectingly   received   from  the prisoners large number's of thedirhes,  Huartei's arrd  half-dollars  turned  out  hy  this   rival   Philadelphia   mint, nnd   spent  them  in   the  city until   Philadelphia was  "flooded with  them.*'   ,Thc couirtoi-L'eiting  business was carried on  by  the convicts  mainly' "to pass away the time." so Tire  Philadelphia Inciuii-er thinks, as they had  nothing.else to do.   In a prison  there is  a great deal of time to pass, and the recollection  of tho old  saying, about  lime  and money might easily suggest the passing of the.latter.   Most of the prisoners  engaged In tho counterfeiting are said to  have beerr emplovcd in  the plumhing,department,  learning, to become plumbers,  and the material for the coins is thought  to   have  been   obtained   by   them.    Trie  counterfeiting was   curried   on  at  night,  when only the night watchman, who was  formerly-a  Philadelphia, policeman,  was  supposed to be on duty.   The newspapers  comment   very   severely   on   the   prison  managcmenit, and  tho critics  of tho Ite-  publican  State administration  profess to  see a connection between the alleged mis-  government of the State and tho dereliction of the prlsoli officials.   Tho Washington Post remarks satirically :���������"Inmates  of "the   Pennsylvania   penitentiary   have  been robbing the State with just as much  daring as though they were outside and  holding office."  A ,'Dutch Proposal.  /he Dutch propose to reclaim the whole  of theJ.Zuyder Zee;, from the" grasp of  the ocean, says Walter Wellman, in Mc-  Clure's Magazine. It is a vast, a daring,  project, the most picturesque engineering  enterprise .known to the world to-day. An  Isthmian canal may cost more money, hut  an Isthmian canal Is, after all, only a  great ditch. While other nations are  seeking colonial .expansion,, the Dutch  propose to create a. hinterland at home.  They propose to reclaim from the waters an area equal to one-fourteenth of  all the present Holland. They propose to  add nearly one-tenth to the area of cultivable land in their country. They propose to find new homes, where now the  sea rages, for a population equal to I per  cent, of all the inhabitants, of the Netherlands. In the United States an enterprise of relative proportions would Involve the creation of a new State like  Missouri or Texas, the reclp-matlon of  land enough for more than three millions  of people to live upon arrd thrive by agriculture.  One of the stork stories about tipping is that of t e : waiter in a swellc  hotel sneering '1,. a quarter and remarking to the giver: "1 beg pardon;  haven't you made a mistake?" A few  nights ago, in the main dining-room  of the Waldorf-Astoria, where tips  range frmo a quarter to $5, a .westerner* said to his two companions:  "Watch mc paralyze this'* waiter, he  ain't worth a cuss. He hasn't showed'  us any etxra attention, and doesn't deserve a cent,, but here goes."  Thc bill being paid; and '(.hangc placed before him in a plate, he handed  the 'waiter a copper cent. '.'As'lie. ex  pected, garcon turned up his nose and  said :  "I beg pardon; haven't you made a  mistake?"  "Not at all," was the reply;'* "not at  all. You are quite welcome. 1 never give  less."

"The air is very cool aud delicious  outside, Miss Mostyn; do you feel equal  to a stroll? he asked, with a smile  lurking at the corner of his moulh.  Barbara's face cleared as if by magic.  "He wants me," she thought to herself; and then, seeing that the  :>ther men had come iu, anl she might  with etiquette leave, her lady guests,  she gave a   Gordon a. cold smile.  "I shall be delighted, Mr. Smythe.  If yon will oome this way I can pick  up some sort of wrap; those, summer  evenings are  rather   treacherous."  Several of the younger ladies looked rather enviously nfter Barbara  us she carried, ofi the -delightful Mr.  Smyihe. Gor-doii'.s ila.shTrig eyes had  wo. ked havoc in their veiy commonplace hearts.  But JJarbnrv never devoted a  thought to this, and if Gordon saw the  disappo'nnrunt which was legibly inscribed on one or two faces, 'it only  added to the intense satisfaction  whiyh reigned la Iris breast.

'Ain't .the pain no better  at all?"  {Catharine rested quietly for a moment or two, then she smiled at the  girl, her iwan, sweet smile.

"There'sa note, miss, for you on the  tray; it was given m������ by one of the  strange, gentle men's valets as I  comu along."  Once alone.. ������alfrurine tore open the  note.  "IMeet me ,in the coppice at tweLve  sharp., 'oo not fail to c.oure. You must  make any cxo.ii.ie you think fit, but I  shall expect you.

Katharine ,tore ihe note into aloms,  paused only a moment, then ate  some breakfast in a set mechanical  fashion, and then rose and pe.rforrired  her toilet in lire samo way. Her faco  was very -pale, but she looked what  she realty ,\vas, much stronger, anil  Ihere.-fyas a strange.air Of delerni.'ua-  t.ion-about her that, almost savored of  doggedfcsu I lenne.-is.  "���������For his sake! his sake!" she murmured every now and then to herself, as she coiled up lho masses of  her harr, and robed herself in one of  her simple, pretty morning frocks.  "Come what may, I must be brave;  I   must forget myself for his sake!"  Her very desperation gave hor new  strength: she would not, dared not,  let herself think of the future; it was  the present that filled all her  thoughts. Gordon's fierce, evil face  haunted her;- his threats bore double  weight while he was under the same  roof as Lord Otway.  "What use in moaning and wailing,'; she said bitterly to herself, as  she sat down for one moment to rest  from the fatigue of dressing. "I am  face to face with the most hideous  problem that ever J came to mortal  woman.

Barbara had gone hack to the  frank, semi- affuolionale tone she.  had adopted lo win her way with  Kalharine. She throw an extra little warmth into it now, as she wished  to patronize the girl before the assembled guests.  "That girl is simply too beautiful  for words," was Lady Clara Lennox's  remark.    as Katharine vanished.  And J3arbara, hea ring this, gazed  after the tall, graceful frgure with  venomous jealousy rankling in Irer  breast; but her frown soon'changed  into a smile as she noted which way  Kalharine bad gone.  "Patience,", shcjiiurmurod J to herself. "Patience; my time is com-  inK!"  Katharine walked through the August sunshine as pale as a' statue, and  almost as cold in her heart as though  she had indeed been made of stone.  Her feet moved mechanically away  from the :1awn^, where all was bustle  nnd confusion preparing for the  -arrival of the' villagers in the afternoon, and all their festivities.  She neither asked nor puzzled herself as to wlrat Gordon reciuiireri of  her now.* Tlie T"fact remained that  he did want her. and she -was obeying him. for Ormande's sake. What  was there on ca rth sho would not  liave done for him' i  The coppico reached, Katharine  .stood and looked abotut for Gordon.  Thoro were rtb Signs of hiin at first,  but after a time she felt the scent  saf his cigar steal on tbo summer air,  and'in a inoment'he bad sauntered  around a corner and was beside lier.  "Punctual, to tile minute, Kattie,"  he said, with his most approved sneer.  "See what it is to bu so attractive;  yon fly to o1������iy rny smallest worvj."  "You lrivo sent for mo!

The blood, flamed to his face, and  then receded, leaving il as white us  a sheet.  Katharine's bead was turned away;  she did not know .what or wiio  was near her; she. had turned faint  and cold at this contact with a man  who was moro horrible to her than  the vilest animal.  As Gordon loosened her arms and  she staggered back, she heard a  shrill  voice say  very sharply:���������   "  "I am afraid we intrude here, Lord  Otway!" and raising her shame I,  miserable eyes, sh'*. saw 0 lu.nrd^s  well- loved form just moving awav.  With a groan she buried her faco irr  lier hands, and Gordon leaned comfortably against a tree arid surveyed  lier  through  his  half- closed  eyes.  "You really need not hide, you-  face, Kattie," lie saVl. irr titril mocking manner thi; la.slrcd true proud  heart to fury; '"there is nothing so  very strange in the fact of a wiiV  lavishing caresses on her husband,  though T grant you it i.s very flattering to my vanity.

She was beginning to see tire system of refined torture this man would submit her t.o.  The meeting in the. coppice had bean  a pre- arranged thing in his mind; he  wished to let Ormande sea her in' a  position that would rouse his doubt  and jealousy, rind lie had succeeded  only too well. A rebellious feelimr  rushed, into the poor girl's mind; she  had prayed so off en'of late, for do-  livevaneo from ihis man, for peace,  and'forgetfulness, and her praj-eis  seemed left unanswered.  "There is none to care," she said to  herself; "let the end come.       I    am  Gordon smoked on in silcn.e for  moment.  "1 Joan* hen! to-morrow morning  early!

"[ hoiie thai plan wiill not incon-  venienca you, l-futtie!'"  She resisted tlm sudden inclination  to strike, hiin across hrs smooth, smiling face: hor'nerves were strung  up to tlie.ii'" highest pitch.  "Your hour?" slro said, in low,  hurtlcy tones, still clasping her  handa. .    i  Gordon gave himself up for a moment to tho enjoyment of his cigar,  the sneering smile lingering on his  lips. '....:���������  ���������".Really, tliis is quite pleasant. Aid  I can foresee a most, delightful existence witli you, my dear Kattie; the  dearest and most obedient wife in  tlio world."

'���������' (  Gordon laughed softly, J and was  about to make, some remark when  suddenly he threw away his half-  smoked cigar, and. witb one stride,  was close beside Irer.  *  "Fling your arms about me quickly,'- he muttered. . almost fiercely;  tlien as sho shraulc back, "do you  Ilear me? At once! Cling to me! Obey  me.      You know our compact."  Kalharine hesitated, hut he seized  bar two hands., and dragging theni up  to his neck, clasped them-there; then  he let bis own arms hang down by  his side, and the. effect on any stranger would bis that Katharine ������was  clinging to hi irr. pleading with all the  abandon of a   lover.  Such, at lea-st. was the translation  that came lo Ormande's mind as, in  company  with Barbara  Mostyn,      be  weary of fighting."* ,-.  But the next, instant' she was  herself again, and was more firmly  resolved than ever that she would ho  true to her love, true to her vow.  Come what might, she must, she  would stand .between Ormande and  danger.  "I will go Sway, as he commands,"  she determined; "but once in London,  I Will find some plan to outwit him  and escape him. The palh is full of  difficulties now, but a way will be  open to me.     It shall! it shall!"  And then Katharine had to call up.  all her courage and ���������strength us she  perceived Mrs. Trevanion and another lady sauntering toward her.  "What are you doiaig here, MTss  Brereton?'- Inquired Barbara's aunt  wilh much ausierily 'as. the gi'I  I would have hurried past her; "there  i3 work for you in lire library. Stay!"  as Katharine would have hu'-rTcI  awy, "you have some scissors at  jour chatelaine. I see; kindly cut oTf  ibis braid that is lorn on my skirl."  Katharine knell oht'dTently on the  ground, and Mrs. Trevanion pursued  her conversation wilh lire other lady.  'I assure you ii is true; he. told  Uarbaia so hiin&clf, so there can he  no doubt whatever, can there?" shu  said.  "Of course nol," (ho lady ro. li'd;  "bul P confess I am astonished nevertheless, lie rs a most delightful  man, and deserves a good wife. Do  you know where the mysterious Mrs.  Gordon Smythe is?"  "Oh, I fan-tv sne is somo disreputable Pray, wiiai    is    lhe    matter,  Miss l3rerelon? I wish you would  would nol start in llrat manner, ir  lira Ices   mo   so   nervous." This     to  Katharine, wiio had indeed giveng**. a  great start as these words crrrie to  her ears. The. girl bent h.*r face  still lower over the refractory braid,  but the scissors trembled in her- hand  so much that she could do nothing for  tha moment. Mrs. T-evrrnioir, aft.r  thai rebuke, co.ninued her convers i-  tion again. "Yes. 1 am quico.su'c  she must be a person hc is ashamed  of!

He was very pale,  and there wa.s a sombre fire in his  eyes that added lo the beauty of tho  blue orbs, but which somehow impressed the beholder with undoubted  distress. Both Barbara and Gordon  noticed it��������� the first witb a frown  the other with a smile of triumph;  and so the long- expected day wore  away.  In the evening there was to be the  ball  to which the whole of the neigh- *  boiing   bouses  for  miles  around  bad  received  invitations.  Ormande. Lord Otway, would have  (riven all his worldly possessions to  have rushed away madly from Brexley Hall before the whirl and rush of  the dance commenced. His aching  heart longed to be buried in some  far distant spot where even the name  of the woman be loved so dear could  never be breathed.  "Slro does *;ot love me! ' She lias  deceived me!" lie. had said hirterly to  himself all through th-.* loirj; weary  day. "She loves another, and that  other a man whom my instinct wn-ns  rne !.*** bad to the core.

The lower purl ni the house  was deserted, while upstairs all was  bustle and confusion as the fair occupants arrayed0 rhciuselves for  conquest.  Ormande had no excuse ready to  leave tha't night, but he determined,  with a sigb. that on the morrow he  would go quite early. i  "t must," he said to himself. "I  have been blinded for a time, now I  must tear.away the illusion and be  myself again."  He stood on for awhile, rind presently Mr. Montrose came up to him.  The good-natured .politician's   face  worn a   puzzled and anxious look.  "All alone, Otwa'yf'T Ire said, wiih a  glance^around. "I drii glad of it. I  rather wanted to speak to yoa. Do  you know anything of this fellow  Snrythe who is: down here?"  Ormande hesitated; his blood seemed  to boil at the Tsound of his rival's  name.  "No; nothing." he answered at last.  "What���������what. of him?"  ilr. Montrose put his hands behind  hia bock and pursed up his lips. It  was: an old trick of his. Ho replied  to Ormande hurriedly:  "This��������� that I think he fs an awful  scoundrel; you know he has a wife?  Miss Mostyn told me that he had informed her of tbe fact only last night,  and yet I very much fear he is playing the. deuce with that lovely girl of  poor Robert Brereton's."
