Ernest Cashei was hanged on Tuesday morning, at the police barracks,  Calgary, and satisfied with bis life the  demands of justice. He died tb in, but  with an easy consieence, for shortly  before the. fatal moment he told Mr.  Ker-hy that, he was guilty of Ihe murder of Isaac T-iifus Bell, says tho Calgary Herald on Tuesday.  The whole banging was (|iiietly done  and from lhe time the condemned  man left the guard room until the  drop fall two minutes were not consumed.  Just a few minutes afler S o'clock  Itadcliffc the hangman, walked up l.o  the cell, shook bands with the prisoner and said:   "Now, Cashei.''  Tbe latter got up, gave Radclill'e hi.s  hand, took it away again, and walked  bravely out to the snaffold at tbe rear  of the guard house. He did not shake,  appear nervous or show any signs of  weakening, but walked firmly on bis  last march in lifo.  He looked very pale, however, and  had an almost spiritual appearance.  To see bis fu.ee one would hardly realize that this nieok. penitent looking  boy, was tho far famed desperado of a  week ago. The transition was marvellous, rind one in seeing him today  missed that hang dog expression that  has been his during his trial. Truly  may it be said that he wa.s a different  Ernest Cashei.  All the time Radcliffc was tying his  legs hc.stood straight up. on the trap  of the scaffold without a tremor in his  body. Rev. Jlr. Kerby stood directly  in front of him, iuidat Cashel's request  muttered a. short prayer. After' this a  white cap was .placed over-the con-,  demned man's-head and face. When  all was ready RadcliU'e warned everyone away from the trap and gave the  signal to Mr. Kerby to start the Lord's  prayer.  This thc reverend gentleman did.  He repeated the words: "Our Father,  whicli art in Heaven," and on down in  a slow and distinct voice. When the  words "Lead us not into," were  spoken, Radcliffe let down the trap  and Coshel dropped below, a distance  of 10 feet.  The death procession came out of  thc guard room led by Rev. Mr.  Kerby. walking in front and alone.  Immediately behind him was Cashei,  walking without the support of his  guards, who walked on either side of  him. Constable Rogers and Capsey  performed this sad duty. Next came  the sheriff. Colonel Sanders, Insp.  Knight, and last, Radcliffe. The  whole party walked up the 15 steps to  the platform, where, without further  ceremony, tho condemned man's legs  were tied together, bis hands being  =ci'ossi!d������aniVtlie-viiidication-ol'=t.he^!!i.w-i  was carried out.  Cashei came|out. of the guardroom  bareheaded, he wore a dark t.woed  suit, with a white shirt, but, nn collar.  He had on tan shoes.  His hair was very long and bis littlo  brown side whiskers gave hint an  oldish appearance. To his photographs ho bore no resemblance whatever.  ���������������������������^���������������������������^������������������������������������^������������������������������������������������������������������������^���������^���������^������������������������������������.t' ty ty ty ty ty ty ty  ty  E BROS.

The reverend gentleman  has been . a most constant visitor to  the cell of the condemned man, and  there is no doubt that a great deal of  tbe fortitude shown' by Cashei was  due to his faith in the words of 'Mr.  Kerby. The minister has talked' long  and often with him-'-about his career,  and has had a very good idea that  Cashei was guilty. When Mr. Kerby  left the cell Monday aftei noon there  was an understanding between lrinr  and Cashei that something would take  place on Tuesday morning in regard  to the crime. Shortly after Mr. Kerby  arrived he hail p-rayer with Cashei,  read the 23rd Psalm to him and at the  prisoner's request sang "Nearer My  God to Thee." and "there's Not a  Friend Like the Lowly Jesus." During  the prayer Cashei broke down and  sobbed like a little child.  After arising, Mr. Kerby said :  "Now, Ernest, what's your, answer?*'  "I am guilty, 1 am guilty," the condemned man said, and wept afresh.  That was all hc said  in regard to the  crime.    Just the words. **l am guilty."  repenting them twice.  Mr'. Kerby arrived at tire guardroom  this morning al 0:15 arrd never left the  side of the prisoner until all wn.s over.  During the short time Ihat intervened  between the minister's arrival and the  execution.'the time was sperrt in read- j  ing from tbe bible, prayer, singing and j  woi'ds from Mr.  Kerby. J  After Cashei bad been hanging I  nbout two minutes, Dr. Rouleau, the j  N. W. M. P. physician, foil the pulse j  oftho banging man. and .said it was'  still throbbing, but very faintly.  Radclill'e said, "Let him bang aboiri  20 minutes." which was dune. At the  expiration of this time he was cut  down and carried into a lent in the  yard.  '  STOKY OI-* THIS   MUl.DKIt.  The following is from tbe Calgary  Herald : "  It was for tbo murder of Isaac Rufus  Belt, a rancher- on the Red Deer river,  that Ernest Cashei paid the death  penalty. The story is an old one to  most Calgary people,' but will bear  repeating for the benefit of those who  have beard of Cashei in the past- few  months, and know little of the murder  for which he was convicted. 1  According to the Crown's evidence 1  Cashei killed Belt somewhere around j  Oct. 27, 1002. Witnesses at the trial  swore to seeing Cashei at Rufus Belt's  shack on the Red Deer about that date  The young man went by the mime of  Bert Ellsworth, and said he was a cow  puncher looking for some cattle which  he wanted some one to take on shares.  Shortly after this time relatives who  went to Belt's shack discovered the  owner missing. Tbey looked around  but could find no trace of Rufus .as be  was usually called. The shack was  found in ti topsy-turvy condition, arrd  there were, evidences that two people  had eaten there together.  When the relatives began to look  around they discovered- that Rufus  Belt's suit of brown corduroy was mis-1  sing, as was a'lso his buckskin pony  and a stock saddle almost new. Belt  had written his name, on the back of  the saddle in lead pencil. But no  4rtice���������0ll^J3eJtI*s^.ijQtl>keoiild be-foiind.  Mounted Police searched the country  and the Red Deer river very carefully,  but, failed to find the body at that  time.  r'rneit Cashei, or Bert Ellsworth as  he called himself, was suspected of ibe  murder, but there could be no case  against hint until Hell's holy was  recovered.  Meanwhile Cashei  was arrested and  ALL SIGNS  INT TO WAR  escaped from lhe chief of police of Calgary, jumping from the train when it  was going at good speed. After getting away from the cliief he stolea  horse. He was arrested and sentenced  to a term in Stony .Mountain penitentiary for horse stealing.  While Cashei was serving his term a  badly decomposed- body was found at  the mouth of Tail creek, on lhe Red  Deer, on July 2Sth. There was no  clothing on it, bul a .'pair, bf .boots  proved that the body was that of the  rancher. Celt was in the habit of  running his shoes over, and to prevent  this be used a steel plate al the side to  keep the heel straight. Tlris was  found on one of the Irpots.- The size of  the body eorie-sponded to Belt's, although some of the dead man's own  relatives during their evidence had  very vague idea.s as lo size and distance.  Corporal Peniiycuick. of the N. W.  M. P., worked up the case against  Cashei. He secured evidence to .show-  that the man hanged today had traded  Rufus Belt's horse away for another  one. hud exhibited a fifty dollar bill,  which corresponded to one Belt had  before his death, and after the murder  wore a coi-duroy suit of clothes which  were identified as Belt's.

Russian lleet is leaving  Port Arthur un .-.ridden orders. It is  oflicially said thai the condition of thc  ice in ihe harbor is the reason, but  activity in army .-rs well as navy  circles give ri.-e 10 a disquiet feeling.  lll'SSIANtf (IN" jr.vitcii  Over 9.000 Russian troops have  received sudden marching orders and  the barracks is in an intense state of  excitement.

The Cable Company has announced  that it cannot accept any more messages of a. private nature from Port  Arthur except via "Chee I*'oo, which  mean.- a delay of two days. The government authorities have declared  Ciiee Foo under quarantine for smallpox, and it is impossible to get further  information.  Tokio, Feb.

The Minneapolis Journal (Republican)  says :���������"The action of the Massachusetts  Democratic convention In unequivocally  declaring in favor of reciprocity with  Canada ls significant. The Republicans  do not seem to appreciate, at least officially,' how widespread is the feeling iu  favor of reciprocity in general and reciprocity with Canada. They do not understand that thousands of manufacturers  no longer care so much as they did for a  high tariff, and are \ cry much more concerned than rormerty about getting their  goods into other countries.' There can he  very little doubt that'when- tjie business  men of New England rend the' reports uf  the convention their hearts were softened  toward lhe Democrats." ;  All- of this ls very gratifying to the  people of the Dominion, who do not. however, quite understand why rewspapeis  and politicians of the United States treat  tlie question as lti');i"'i no otliut-count:-;.-,  no other desires but their own. need be  considered In'the'mutter.

Further, Japan has great  geographical advantages, and thus from  every point of view she would have nothing to apprehend at sea.

Ventilation of stables in winter is a  matter which requires judgment. When  a stable is ventilated it means that the  cold air comes i'n. How to ventilate is  a problem, both for dwelling houses  and stables. A window left open, or a  top flue to admit air, may serve llic  purpose as long as the wind is blowing from a certain direction, but when  the wind changes thc result will be a  direct cold draught on thc animals that  may cause pneumonia. Cracks and  crevices in the walls are more dangerous than open windows.  Coupling the Flock.  J. A. McDonald, Hcrmonville, P.  E. I., writes:���������The season is near  when the ewes must be coupled if full  profit is to bc made Irom the flock.  The early lamb is worth twice as  much as the late one, and -is-more  safely reared. Thus lire choice of the  ram and its introduction to the Hock  is a timely matter for consideration at  the present moment. As to breed, it  does not matter very much, unless this  is a main point in keeping the sheep.  If the flock is pure bred, of course, the  breed is to hc kept up, but even then  it is good policy always to get a ram  from another flock than from your  own.

Close breeding is  more  disastrous  to  sheep, than lo cattle or hogs.  The 'best results    are  obtained    by  choosing a 'sound,���������-.well-formed, vigorous animal,  rather than a. bigger  one.  without   these   qualities.  /This   is, an  axiom  which  also .'works .with���������'.- other  classes" o[.livii:st6ck besides, sheep. i-.ii.:i  The fleece, is to be. studied, for.  lire  lambs will take after the ram in respect,  to -wool.mostly, if the animal is from:  a  good  flock.     Choose  a  well-formed,  solid-bodied;.ram,  with short legs! and  small, well-shaped head.     The age of  the ram is of great importance, for upon this, to a very great extent will depend   .the    sex    of the    forthcoming  lambs."  There are many supposed laws of  breeding. One of tlieni is a wise provision of nature for the preservation ol  the species. When any race is in danger of extermination for any cause this  law will operate to secure.the extension of its 'existence in some way.  When food is abundant and'the race is  vigorous we expect it to increase most  rapidly. Then the younger males, active and full of energy, monopolize the  females and drive off the- old' males.  The result is a much greater proportion of female'.births'.' than of male;  even to the extent of three to one. On  the other hand, ewes served by an old  ram produce 'au- equal' proportion of  nielc births.. The breeder, ,then, who,  wants his flock to increase will choose  young, vigorous rams, and will" feed  the flock liberally, so as to preserve the  conditions suitable for "rapid increase  of the stock. The breeder, oil the other  hand, who makes his profit rroni young  tarns which hc sells, will follow Ibe opposite course, and so increase his income from a surplus of those io be disposed ot.  Probably the months of Marcli and  April will bc thc periods when most  people wa������t the lambs to come, wliile  -lherc-arc=not-a-(cw���������iii*=tlic-iior.th_and^  cast who consider May early enough.  This is a matter, of course, for individual consideration. The period of gestation in the ewe is five months. November coupling, therefore, means  April lambs; December, Mav lambs,  etc.  Good feeding of both ewes and ram  from this time on is a-desideratum, and  ilie presence irr the Hock of a sturdy  young ram, under two years ol age. It  is essential that he be well grown aud  matured. A ram eight months old  may be used, if it be growtlry and vigorous; but orre twice as old is greatly  to be preferred.  Feed bats.and'wheat bran in preference to corn, for nitrogeneous food  will bc the best stimulant' for the ewes,  and there is no grain that so stimulates the sexual system as oats. Fat is  rrot desirable at the breeding season.  Thc aim should be in both ram and  ewes to get flesh and a strong nervous  condition. Thc ewes should, receive  a half pint of oals and the same of  bran every day irom now on, while a  pirrt of whole oals and as much bran  a day will not bc too'much lor a vigorous young rani. If thc ewes are not  irr breeding condition, on account of  neglect or poor pasture, or undue exposure, one or two grains-of c.intiia-  rides given to the ewes will usually  bring them into condition for prompt  breeding,' provided it is observed -they  arc lax in this respect. With intelligent feeding, largely of oats, it will ���������  seldom bc necessary to resort to drugs.  But the breeder of pure bred sheep  who may want his Iambs to  promptly on time,'to sell ior  breeders next fall, or for show  poses, or those in thc wint-r  business, occasionally find it ncces.-nrv  to resort to drugs.

"Won't you never breathe a word  of it if I tell you?" asked the girl,  re-entering the room and closing the  door  to.tly  after  her.  Izetta smiled; she was very glad of  even the maid's chatter to divert her  'mind even lor ths moment from  her own sad thoughts. ' ���������   t  "You see, miss, it's just thi s way  here," commenced the maid, myster-  ously.

Von can hear a  good deal of talk about getting in  new* scholars and needing 'em, but I  tellyou it isn't that; they can't get no  teacher to stay, and it's all that Miss  Glendyke's fault, the hateful old  thing," cried the girl, shaking her  forefinger warningly. "She's the  worst bf the lot; sho sets 'ern up  against a body from the first: All  I've got to say is. I'd look out for  her if   I   were you."  With this parting advice, the girl  quitted the room, and Izetta was left  to the contemplation 'of her .own  confused thoughts.  . She stretched out her hands with  a low, bitter cry, the one great cry.  of her life issuing from her* white lips.  "Oh, Alderic, my love, my husband,  ���������where are you?'  The tea which was sent up to ber  remained untasted; it was not the  hunger of the bo:ly but of the heart  .-which   Izetta   felt   mest   keenly.  She rose early t he next morning,  donning onj or.' her plainest dresses,  a dark silver-gray (hat fell iu graceful folds aboul her shapely form, iind  her dark curls were drawn back by a  pearl comb, which was her only ornament. 1     .  The picturesque, foreign beauty of  Izetta struck Madam Roof forcibly as  she entered the musi --room. Soon' after the young ladies of the college  took their- scats.

The memory  of "that smile was'precious' to lzelta  all the, years of her after-life. ������������������''������������������  "1 shall try hard to win' their love,"  thought Izetta, as she listened to  their low whispers, which ended in  suppressed bursts of laughter.  There was rebellion in their hearts  and war in their faces. She'might as  well have attempted to govern the  fiery lava of Vesuvius as stayed the  torrent of their disliki*; her very  beauty, and the picturesque, large,  dark,   starry   eyes   were   the main  -causes^of-^-their��������� envy  it he oould. He had come across this  pearl in quite an unexpected fashion-  It was a chilly morning in the  early winter, Vernor Key strolled  leisurely up the marble steps of the  collefge.  It was rather an early hour for visitors, slitl, as he was (iu tu a favorite,  he knew admittance would not be  denied bim.  The long halls were quite descried;  from where lie stood, he, had a good  view, unobserved, of thb music-room  beyond.  A young girl sat at the piano, her  head"drooped over the keys; whilo beside the instrument, her arms folded  across her cbost, stood Miss Glen-  dyke.  There was no mistaking the look of  fierce haired sho bent ^tipon the girl  before he.r. Vernor Kay was completely terrified at the change apparent In her hitherto smiling countenance.  "illow abhorrent Is the faoo of an  angry woman," he muttered, feeling  that he sliould turn away, but some  impulse chained him to the. spot.  "You will play the last bar ovor  again, Miss Rienzi."  Tho white fingers rippled ovor the  ivories, and "the sweet, sad strains  touched a hidden chord in Vernor  Key's heart; tha sadd-st anl s-.vestcst  that ever fell on a  human heart.  "Ha! I thought as much," continued Miss Glendyko, wrathfully; "no  wonder that passage sounded unfamiliar to me; How dared you insert  those variations; answer me, girl!"  The slight  figure swayed   to      and  fro.  Vernor could not catch the reply.  "I'm in time to  frustrate a   grand  scheme of yours, Miss Rienzi. No  doubt you would like to get your  namo up for a Composer, but you  shall never build up your triumphs  from this establishment," she said, in  her coarse, deep, peculiar  voico.  In another moment sho had snatched the music from Izetta's hand, tearing it spitefully into a thousand  shreds.  For. one brief instant Izetta's faco  was turned partially toward him,  and tho voice, tho sweetest  Vernor Key had ever heard, faltered, brokenly:  "I am very sorry indeed if I have  displeased you, Miss Glcndyke; believe me, I never once thought of heing k no ivn as a  composer."  'A low, discordant laught was Miss  Glendyke's'only response.  "I assure you I jvas only practicing  It for my own , amusement," continued ilzetta.  "Amusement, indeedl do not  trouble yourself with unnecessary explanations. I can seo for .myself,"  sneered .Miss Glendyko.  "1 hope you will forgive mc," sighed  Izetta.  ���������A look, freighted with such abominable scorn and contempt, Vernor  ���������Key inever forgot; it, crossed Miss  Glendyke's ,face.  "Wo will waive all Ihat," sho said;  "by.rights I should report this affair  instantly to Madam Root. A severe  reprimand in the presence of the  wholo school is what you richly deserve. Leave the room at once, Miss  Rienzi, or I may be tempted to  change my mind."  The. next moment a quiet little figure glided past the spot whero Vor-  nor Key sat, quite shaded by the  heavy curtains; he knew ho was unobserved, for the large, .dark, lustrous eyes wero suffused with blinding tears that rolled off tho long,  curly lashes in pearly drops.  That was the first time. Vernor Key  over remembered jju imprecation lo  have wilfully passed his lips; as ho  turned savagely on his heel, hurriedly quilting the building, murmuring  to himself:  "Woman's inhumanity to woman is  certainty heart- rending."

"lioiv long do you think you will  remain abroad?'' Miss Ulundyko was  saying,  "That I really cannot say," ho replied.  "That r's hardly a definite urrswur,"  ehe replied, laughingly.  "I assure you, I wish I could guide  my own ioi-runes," Mglii'-d the. lieutenant, thinking of fze.lla; "but, a Ins, 1  cannot; I am quite beginning to  despair;."  "I can hardly realize tlrat this i������.  your last day in Oxford for some limo  to come, lieutenant: I am very  pleased to see you re.in������inbor your old  triends in calling lu-riny."

One day, while Millr.is was engaged  in painting his famous picture, "Chill  October," among the reeds and rushes  on the banks of the Tay, near Pcrlh, a  roicc came over from the hedge :  " Man, did ye never try photography?"  "No, never,"  replied   Millais,  painting slowly.  A pause.  " It's a hantle    quicker,"    said the  voice.  "Yes, I suppose so."  AiiothcrupAiisei  'A perfectly healthy condition of the  stallion is indispensable to enable him  to    propagate    a   vigorous    progeny.  Whatever will contribute to give him  the best health, the greatest vigor, the  hardiest condition,  will  make ot him  the most successful stallion, and to this  end he should have the proper amount  of exercise.   No horse or man can be  in the hig-hest state of health or vigor  without physical  exercise.    It is  one  of the natural  demands of his existence.    It cannot be ignored unless a  penalty  is   exacted.     Many    stallions  have    proved    failures  as  sires  when  kept cooped up in tlieir stalls without  proper exercise,  but when afterwards  sold and properly wor-ked have proved  successful    sires.      But    the   exercise  should not be excessive.   Good, moderate road work for a stallion is all that  is required.    Fast speeding should not  bc   tolerated.     His   phyiic.il   strength  should not be exaustcd by fast work  and  by being bred  to   marcs  besides.  Both are heavy taxes on  his  physical  strength. Give stallions long, slow road  work, even about your ordinary business,  and  it  is  all   riyht.    Better  attend to driving them yourself than  to  let employees drive, tiiem.    When you  are absent they will want to sec how  much speed they can get out oi thc:u.  They  like  thc -cxlrilinraiicn   oi  a  fast  .ride and  will  he  sure  to  get  it  when  you are out of si;;!it. and more particularly  if  the driver  is  a  young  man  or boy.   Recollect what you did yourself when  a  boy.  and  don't  think  ;hc  boys of the present (lay are any bettcr  than   when  you   were  a   boy.���������Maine  Farmer.  u  nrl. =-  rrant-rJ-*--  ������������������ivit-v.-'n ������������������-.  -Ir.   i^--r.o-  ���������.lie-X7r*v* - - *  ~'il.f-  :.''. .'.*> ���������  -. bv"'-'-  ��������� 1 ���������,=  poppy   means?

It was in a Philadelphia public  school, according to The Ledger, the  other day, that a class in spelling was  going on over a lesson in words of  two syllables. One of thc words was  "mummy."  "Children," said the teacher, "how  many of you know the meaning of the  word 'mummy'?"  After a long silence one little girl  raised her hand.  "Well," Maggie?"  "It means yer mother."  The teacher pointed out her mistake and explained fully the meaning  of the word.

Second Grand Rally to Encourage the Development of our  Great Mineral Resources in  the Province.  The I'tiiiipaigu of Remedial Legislation, which was commenced by our  Association nl, its general convention  in February last litis been prosecuted  with zeal by the executive ciiininittee  ever since.  The Legislature wa.s, at the lime, iu  a state of inlei-nal dissension and unable to give its attention to the many  pressing needs of the Province. Nevertheless, we did succeed in obtaining  two of the reforms recommended by  tire Association, viz:���������  1 'I'lie right of redemption of mineral  lands! sold for taxes.  2 A provision enabling the owner of  a group of crown granted mineral  claims In perform all requisite work  upon any one of bis claims.  I'lie Association, us you tire aware,  is composed of nieii representing all  classes of industry and politics in the  Province, but. the Association itself is  absolutely non-pa il.iz.in.

How many peoplo understand tlio  (tliseascs which altect their watches?  lake human beings, watches suffer  Trom exposure, they take cold, or they  nay catch the contagion of dynamoa  or strongly vitalized bodies. Au ounce  homo remedies will save many a  of prevention or tbe use of Biniplo  jeweller's bill.  Watches often sulfer from changea  of temperature. Aft.er a watch nan  teen worn next to a warm body all  day it should not be left over night on  cold marble or near an open  ���������window. The pivots however slightly  tighten up the works. The next morning, for no apparent reason, one's  ���������watch will be found to be losing time-  It frequently happens tbat watches  are slightly magnetized by statis electricity given off by the human body.  It has been found that dark peoplo  are more likely to exert this influence  over their watches. This influence is.  "besides, more common among women  than with men. Persons of this sort  can never hope to carry the correct  time unless they carry their watches  tin rubber or steel cases.  Never lay your watch down for tho  night in a horizontal - position. It  should always be hung vertically, aa  It Is carried during the day. If the  iPivot of the balance wheel be in tho  [least worn this change of positions  Mends to loosen the "cap jewel."  Every one has had a watch suddenly stop for no apparent reason,    and  k'o on again   when   slightly   shaken.  This may not happen once a year, but  all watches are liable to such an accident.   This is due usually to the catching of the delicate hair spring.    It  is caused by some sudden   movement  such as jumping on or oft a car.   The  jolt must come at the exact fraction of  .a second when the spring is in position to catch, so that the chances   of  ustich an accident are rare.    A   watch  should be oiled every eighteen months.  :,The oil dries up ln this time, as a rule,  and if the mechanism be run with tho  oil dry it quickly wears out.  ��������� In examining   a watch   all   Jewellers  tfollow the same plan.   They first look  ,to see If the hands are caught,   if tho  fault lies deeper  they  next take out  ithe balance wheel and examine    the  th   mainspring     and    examine     the  ���������pin and pivots.    Next they let down  .v heels.    It sometimes happens    that  ,s jeweller will not find  the cause of  !che trouble for days.   The most difll-  Icult disorder to locate is a slight hur  ;on one of the wheels.  ���������'*   Many  Jewellers  have collected  fees  for   repairint?     watches    when     tho  ;.watches refuse to go    because    they  .run down.   Women are aaid to be tho  .iiest  customers of the  watch   doctor,  since they seldom wind their watches  iregularly.    A watch should be would  ���������early tn the day, and   not. as is   tho  icommon practice,   at   bedtime.     The  .reason for this is that the spring is  ���������then tightest during the day while the  ������������������watch is being carried   and    ls    less  ���������sensitive.  CARELESS   WITH    DYNAMITE.  Bfeu ma I'KruRin Hunters  ���������This perennial joke about the lova  ���������of women for bargains wearies me,"  eaid a bright business woman the other day. "With most presumptuous  superiority men charge our sex with  an extravagant zeal for bargains, but  1 see enough of business men to as-  eure me that they are just as eager as  (women are to get an article at a few  cents less than the usual price.  "Mr. A  is a generally, extravagant man in his personal expenditures,  ���������but he la keen after bargains. The  other day he came into our officer  wearing an air of great satisfaction  and his jubilation had no other foundation than the discovery of a street  stand where "seconds" in lead pencils'  (were sold at two cents each. -  "'If you know a good pencil when  you see it,' he explained, 'you can  rummage in the pile and pick out Ave  and ten cent pencils at two cents  ������uch, or three for five.  .ten WliO   Handlo nish. Explosives   "a*ol*  gflfc Tlieir Maiig**r.  A party of gantlemea stood ln one of  tho hotel lobbies the other evening discussing general topics of everyday interest, and In tho course of the conversation th* subject of high explosives came up. One of them said it  seomed one of tho m������tst astonishing  ol' facta tliat a man wh* is engaged in  tho bundling or manufacture of such  high and dangerous explosives is so  thoroughly oblivious of the imminent  danger that is always present where  nitre-glycerine, gun cotton, dynamite,  or any easily exploded substance is  being handled. Iu the party of gen-  tleineu was tho Hon. Samuel J.  Ritchie, of A���������-trou, Ohio, one of tho  best known, capitalists in his own  State, and a man whoae experiences  would fill a set of volumes. A discoverer of copper, a constructor and  promoter of railroads, and as a mining expert with few equals, but most  prominently connected with the various movements that have been  started from time to time relative to the annexation of Canada. Mr.  Ritchie's reminiscences turned on his  many narrow escapes from high explosives and the careless and reckless  manner in which ihey were handled  by men who seemed indifferent to tha  nossibility of their momentary annihilation.  "I remember ono occasion out in my  State," said Mr. Ritchie, -"when I sat  for over thirty-five miles in close-proximity to a couple ot. cans of n'itro-  Blycerinc that stood iu the most dangerous way near a railroad car stove,  and might have ait any moment blown  the train and passengers to kingdom  como. I boarded the train at a little  station along the line, and, noticing  a man whom I knew in the fore end of  the smoker, I took a seat beside him  and began a spirited conversation  about some then important matter. I  noticed these cans standing near us.  but didn't suppose' they were anything  but molasses, or. possibly, 'bugeye,' he  was taking to the boys up the line.  'Aftei* a while, in a jocose way, I said:  ���������Bill, what have you got in those cans;  liquor?'  " 'It's the strongest liquor I know  of.' he replied; 'it's nitro-glycerine I'm  taking up for some work to be do-ne in  tunnelling.'  "I didn't lose any time getting away  from the vicinity, I tell you. aud in a  little while the passengers found out  what was on board. The man was put  off as soon as possible, and we all  breathed freer, I tell you. Any moment during that thirty-odd mile ride  might have been our last, and yet that  fellow sat there smoking and chatting  as gayly as though he were having the  best of fun. I know lie didn't think  of Jt, for long acquaintance with such  powerful mixtures had eliminated all  fear of their danger.  "Another time," continued the  speaker, "I had occasion during my  experience in railroad construction to  enter into negotiations with a. man for  the purchase of three or four tons of  dynamite. He had beeen doing somo  blasting, and his work being finished,  and I being anxious to get tho explosive for some tunnelling that was necessary, I bought lt from him. The  town where I waa, being one of those  email Western settlements, there was  an apology for a hotel, where I put up.  The deal took me three or four days,  and when. I had about settled .it I  casually inquired where I would find  ���������the caps that xere to go with the lot  of dynamite I had just purchased.  " 'Oh,' said the man, 'the caps are  under your bed at the hotel. I thought  Jt the safest place to put them, and I  really had almost forgotten them. Glad  you mentioned theni.' Would you believe it," said Mr. Ritchie," "I had  beeil sleeping on a bed under which  were enough explosives to blow the  hotel into atoms. Just suppose a slat  had given way or some other casualty  ���������had occurred���������why, I'd have gone to  glory quicket than I'm telling you people, and I didn't sleep there that night  you can rest assured, and I put some  miles that day between your humble  servant and those caps and dynamite."  A-Setnon in Cor-race.  At Sebastapol. during the siege, a  Captain Samoiloff, wishing some wine,  ** 'And that reminds mc of another jprdered an officer to send a man after  "bargain.

"We have little use for cook books  In our town." said the man from Al*  ���������yuguerque, N. M. '  ���������/���������  " "Why. don't you eat?" he asked.  "Yes," he answered, "and that's  ���������why we do not use them. If we did  overy thing would be cooked wrong."  "How's that?"  "Well, you see,'we are so high up."  **I don't understand."  'We are nearly 6,000 feet above sea  ���������level���������almost a mile. Water normally bolls at 212 degrees; with us it  bolls at 202 degrees. Consequently  everything cooks slower with us than  In places lower do'wn. The cook  books are based on the normal degree  of heat and cold effect. They are uso-  less to us; we have to make up our  own recipes. Farinaceous food like  beans, corn and such, hits to be left a  longer time ln wuter or It is moisturc-  Icsb when we go to eat it.

The  ���������Captain, in a rage, ordered the man  ���������into his presence, and demanded why  he had not obeyed his Captain's or-  , der.  "I beg you to pardon me, Captain,  but I was terribly afraid."  "Afraid!" cried the Captain; "afraid!  !A Russian soldier afraid! Wait a minute. I will drive the fear out of you.  Come with me."  The Captain led the way to the  rampart, mounted it, and there, with  .the bullets raining round him, began  putting the man through some mili-  ,tary exercises. The lookers-on in tha  rfort held their breath. If a hat was  ,'rput on a bayonet and lifted above the  "walls, the bullets came that way on",  the Instant. Not many seconds elapsed before a bullet struck the Captain  in the arm. He did not wince, -but  kept on with the drill, while the blood  dripped down his hand to the wall.  I Next a bullet went through the tail  'ot a soldier's coat and another through  his knapsack. Then suddenly the firing ceased. The soldier begged for  grace, and promised to go wherever  he was sent. Still, the Captain continued his drill. When he thought the  lesson had been learned, or, perhaps,  iwhen his arm grew too painful, he dismissed the soldier and went himself  to the surgeon and had. his wound  dressed. The French explained after-  Word that they ceased firing out of  sheer astonishment at Uu* sight of the  two men exposing themselves so recklessly.���������San Francisco Argonaut.

When   the    stranger,  gracefully  dressed   nnd   freshly   shaved,  wns wheeled among them, the convales-  :ents stared nt lrinr with languid, invalid  curiosity;   nnd  lie   stared   back  with  a  fleeting thought  upon  tho irony of unequal distribution,    thrusting    its face  among tho sick nnd feeble.  His eyes rested upon one immovable  bundle huddled in the shelter of the wall.  An old, wrinkled and painful face  emerged at tho top of tire bundle. Tho  man's eyelids opened nnd shut automatically, and his breath camo feebly, with  much effort.   He was a consumptive.  A young girl, with a flaming bit of  ribbon on her hat, had come to visit him  ���������doubtless a daughter. Her vivid, restless eyes followed the stranger rather  than the consumptive's bloodless; face.  He watched her with understanding, uncritical eyes. He knew that she turned  to life and sought to avoid the look of  death. Soon she .went, and the stranger  spoke to the consumptive.  "This is fine weather for us all," he  said.  "It makes���������no difference. It is^���������all  the���������same," gasped tho consumptive  f-pasmodieally.  "Oh," ho replied good-naturedly, "tomorrow you will feel differently."  "Even they say that no longer. I care  not."  "Your daughter, oh? You would not  leave that pretty girl alone���������"  The consumptive's Iip3 trembled, and  'he interrupted shrilly:  "She will go as her mother went. I  cannot snve her!"  Between gasps he told his fear3 to the.  sympathetic stranger. This daughter,  the sole child of a weak woman who had  abandoned her arrd him, was now unfolding the meretricious bloofn of her mother. . ���������'������������������ ���������   '  "But she must even take what lies'inside her," the consumptive ended indifferently.   "I can do no more now."  "Suppose someone should take your  place? Should do for the girl nil that  can be done? Give her a good home and  start her well?"  For a moment the sharp-set features  of the consumptive relaxed, and his eyelids stayed open.. ; **  "Sho might be saved!" he  whispered.  "But who can do that now?"  "II" the stranger exclaimed.  "You?"  the   consumptive asked  won-  deringly.    "Why,   why   do  you���������    Air  well, I don't know.    She must suffer as  all do in this life." ���������'-..;..    -'���������.'._  The momentary pairsion died from his  face, and lie sank back numb.    Soon hi*  loused himself and said complainingly:  "The sun has gone���������I am cold. Why  doesn't someone wheel me into the sun  :way from this cold'wall?"  The stranger moved him gently into  the sunlight, perceiving that illness had  mercifully.simplified life for hira and re-  .'uced his desires to a few that might  easily be satiatied.  That night the consumptive died, in  .treat peace, the breath fading from hire,  easily*. The stranger, as Ire left th;  iiospital, a-sked to see the dead one. Tire  nody lay in the morgue���������a cold, whit-:  room.  . "Here, again," thought the man, while  he gazed at the composed features ti',  ;he corpse, "God has ordered wisely thi'-'  ���������liflrcult matter of breaking with life. He  takes from us each desire, one by one:  ind leaves us with a eiirri vacancy or  ��������� oritent, unmoved by the tenderest pa--  -ions of our hearts.

The young doctor flashed a scornful defiance at his host's comparison, but  yielded to his own wish to tell of her.

When   this young   man's  country   belle  had reached the ripeness of her powers,  the mother of his children, would it not  seem strange to hrm to look  back  and  know that he had sought her, in part nt  least, because she had been the prize of  his day?    In love, it seemed, as in all  else, tho worth of tho thing desired wasi  largely lent to it by public esteem.    So  merchants  stock  their  stores,  and   few  customers give tlrem  tho lie and refuse  their goods.   So brave young men strive  for tho Helen of their city nnd of their  day, and count it  honor  to  carry  her  away.  But   he   wns   too   wise    to   tell   his  thoughts, and the young man cleared-hi  throat nnd answered expectations.  _   "Yes, I  suid  she had  a   heart!  She  III.

Princo Frcderik, accompanied the Into  Cznr Alexander III. of Russia on a pedestrian torn* in Denmark. Weary of walking, they asked a peasiint to give theni  a rido homo, to which he assented. It  was evident from the peasant's manner  that he had no knowledge who were his  august passengers. The King made up  his mind to play a practical joke on tho  man, but ns it happened the man turned  the joke on the King. Nudging tho Czar  with his elbow, the King stud to the  peasant: "Good mnn, tell me have you  ever seen tho Orown Prince of Denmark?"  "Crown Pete? No," responded tho man,  his answer being a vernacular pirn on  tho Crown Prince's title; "but I know he  lives up there in lire castle," i  ���������TVell, I nm the Crown Princo of Denmark," announced, the holder of that  title, restraining himself from laughter  with grent difiiculty.  "And I nm the King of Denmark,"  supplemented King Christian, impressively.  "And I am the Czar of Russia," broke  in the late Czar with his'barbarous pronunciation of Danish, which on tho  tongue of the present Czar, Nicholas,  sounds like that of a native.  The peasant looked them over slowly,  one by one, with n mischievous eye, and  barely removing the pipe stem, ho said  in a slow, crooning voice:  "Weel-a-woel!

It is related Unit when he first visited  Ireland, Thackeray took a drivo on n  Dublin car some distance into the conn-  try. Alileatones had recently been erected  along the roads, and on each wns printed  tho number of miles, with the letters "fr.  P. 0.," distances being measured from  the general post-ofliee. Thackeray was  unaware of this, and in his thirst for information asked lire carman what tho  letters meant. The prompt reply was:  "God preserve O'Coiinell." . Thackeray  believed what he was fold, but the incident only appeared irr lire first edition of  his book.  Tho Manila "American" has discovered  "bite champion eireuhi'tiorr litur."

LANGTON CLARKE. jjj  NCLE GILES waa dying--dying  hard, and fighting desperately  for breath.  As I stood by his bedside  ^^ and looked down on his gaunt  ���������tab* ud hard-bitten features, I forgave  jmlm Us part in the quarrel which had  fsMtHuiaed us five years before.  - Vnole Giles was a miser���������a real, genu*  WW miser. Money was his god, and when  ������ outraged his religion by marrying a  wenniless girl, he excommunicated me  forthwith. He placed his anathema upon  we, and he did it with so many carefully  ,cho*en adjectives that I swore I would  [never speak to him again, were he as  rioh as Croesus.  I ehould have kept my word, too, only  jllncle Giles had sent for me, and it  ���������Beemed a pity not to make up when self-  interest added its voice to that of re-  Irion, and cried "Forgive your enemies."  My Uncle Giles was popularly supposed to be a very rich man���������how rich  Bo one but he himself knew. A few  years prior to our falling out he narrow-  -py escaped ruin through the suspension  ';bt a financial concern in whioh he was  [largely interested. lie was shrewd  .enough to get out in time, however, and  Ifche shock seemed to paralyze all his enter-  ���������prise. He gathered in the money whioh  'lie had invested, nnd became a miser of  jKhe most pronounced type, secreting his  (hoards and pinching and scraping from  may to day to add to them.  On two occasions attempts had been  Bra.de to rob his house, but Uncle Giles  'yna an old soldier of the Civil War and  ithe frontier, nnd he slept light with a  jpistol under his pillow. There was a slm-  Sple funeral" a few dnys after each at-  'tempt, and the coroner's juries said that  Uncle Giles was quite within his rights.  I attended the last inquest, as a spectator, and heard my uncle give his evidence. I had not seen him for some  "time, and when he stood! up I could not  ���������but think what a striking figure be presented���������six feet two inches ln height,  ibig-boned and nngular, his harsh features  beamed from eye to lip by a puckered  ���������purple scar, bitten in by a Confederate  'Cavalryman's sabre.  But more startling than the grotesque  past of his features"was the expression  ���������Imparted by the great glass eye which  [filledI the left, socket. Steadfast, im-  tnovable, slightly larger than its fellow,  dt fascinated by'its basilis-kian glare.  '.; As a child I had quailed beforo that  'dreadful eye, and onee hnd ��������� asked my  ,. mother, in "a too audible whisper, whether, when Uncle Giles died, he would  Jtake his glass eye with him to 'heaven.  i- My uncle heard and laughed grimly.  ' "I will leave it to yoii in my will,  iTounker," lift said, and I thanked him  iwith perfunctory politeness, which made  : him laugh more. I thought he had forgotten the incident, but Uncle Giles had  '*. good memory. A few months after thc  'inquest Uncle' Giles disappeared. One  day when passing the little store where  he pursued his trade���������he was a skilful  rinendcr of broken china���������I saw that it  (Was closed. I made enquiries next door,  ���������aid learned that he had left New York,  *nd had failed to give his future ad-  idres*. Tlie old woman who answered  my questions said stlre thought ho had  gone for a sea voyage. He had lot fall  a few words which indicated such a purpose-  Six weeks later, on again passing thc  shop, I saw through the dirty littlo  panes the harsh, seamed features and the  glare of the glass eye, and knew that  ���������my uncle bad returned. If he eaw me.  ibe made no sign, and I went on my way.  pry bitterness against him, if anything,  intensified.  "Now Uncle Giles had held out the  right hand of reconciliation, and there  (Was no reason why I should not grasp  it. There was every reason, in fact,  ���������why I should. I was" hard up. My salary in the big wholesale house of Arm-  jbrust & Mathison was altogether inadequate for the support of a wife and  (threo voracious children, and there were  tbllls on the horizon which would have to  Ibe met somehow. Uncle Giles won rich  uid I Was his only living relative, for  tny parents had died many years ago.  As I stood by that ragged bed in the  ibare, miserably furnished room, and  looked down on that desperate battle with  ���������death, I could not but wonder how any  ���������nan with money at command could end  Wi life in such unutterable squalor. A  (ragged strip of carpet lay on the grimy  Swards,-a cracked basin stood on an upended soap box in one corner, a huddle  ef patched and threadbare garments lay  ���������jDn^.a^.clfair=in^jino,tlier_corner,_and _the  .only attempt at decoration was a pho~  tograph of my uncle,'taken God knows  'when, which glowered out of a tarnished  copper frame on the dusty mantelshelf.  The hoarse rattle of the dying man'e  Ibrcath was punctuated at intervals by  jthe clink of pots anc pans from tlie adjoining kitchen, where nn old woman,  ���������ragged,' unkempt, anil thoroughly in  keeping with the surroundings, was busy  (preparing some decoction.  By the head of the bed stood a rickety  .table, and on il, in a tumbler of water,  ���������was.my lincle's glass oyc.  Large and round ns a marble, it looked  at me through the side of thc glass, the  .convexity lending to it n grotesque dis-  vtortion. There was something almost  hatanic in its expression���������a disembodied  tP.oiver which riveted my gaze. When J  'looked away I was painfully conscious  of its presence, nnd-'gladly would I havo  plucked it forth and (lung it away.  "Kobert." It was ray uncle's voice,  gasping horribly. "Nearer���������-I have something to say to you."  I bent my ear to the dry, foam-flecked  lips.  "My will, Robert���������it is In the hands  tpf my lawyer���������nry executor���������I have for-  civec you. Under the boards yonder is  % tin cash-box. It contains all the money I possess���������a, littlo over two thousand  dollars."  I could not repress a start of sur-  .prisc���������surely Uncle Giles had more mon-  ,ey than thnt.   "I have left it to a hos-i  J ratal for veterans���������and to yorr."   I ben I  ower.    "I   have  left���������my  photograph���������  land���������"    Ho  fought   wildly   for  breath]  -while I propped him higher on his) pilj  lows, arid waited irr an agony of expectation. The paroxysm passed. "And mv  ���������glass eye���������" he gasped.    "I���������promised  iJt���������lo you.    It���������is���������"    A  horrible griti  ^storied his features, a grin as I fan:  cled of diabolical malevolence, and he  fell back dend.  "Curso youi" liven ns the spirit  ���������lipped from its ungainly envelope I saw  my airy oastleai crush into ruin, nnd sc  (furious was I at the refined cruelty o|  the old man's revenge, that my rosont*  pent might kiu-i earric4.me to indecent  lengths, but for the hurried entrance of  the old servant.  "He is dead," she screeched, in a thin,  cracked voice.  "Yes," I unswered, "he is dead. Let  him rot!"  As I Hung round from the bed my  eye fell on my legacy, peering at me  through tho tumbler. To my disordered  senses it seemed as though it wero  laughing at me, and I raisied my hand  to dash it to the floor. I restrained tho  impulse, however, and, without a look  to left or right, strode from the chamber of death.  It was lurd to break the news at  home, for our hopes had risen high, hut  my wife accepted the situation philosophically, and even tried to persuade  mo to attend the funeral. I returned a  curt refusal, however, to the lawyer who  sent mo the intimation, and having informed him of the secret hoard, 1 dismissed the whole subject as far us possible fronr my mind, and settled down  to fight thc never-ending battle of the  1:11111 with nn income too small for his  necessities. 1.  Some threo months after my uncle's  death, on my birthday as it chanced, a  small parcel was delivered at mj door  by special messenger. My wife and I  opened it with plcasied expectancy, wondering who had remembered rne. The  first tiring which met our eyes was tho  faded photograph of my uncle. Therr I  knew what that littlo square box contained! The executor of my uncle's will  had religiously carried out his instructions. I tore off the lid, took one look  at the baleful contents, and then, opening a drawer full of odds and end-s,  flung in box and alL The eye rolled out,  and as I closed the drawer with a bang  I could have sworn I saw it wink.  Three days later my oldest boy came  to me with something clutched in his  chubby fist.  "Look at tho nice-alley I found," he  said. He opened his fingcr3, and there,  lying on the pink palm, was that detestable eye.  I substituted a; stick of peppermint  candy, anil, carrying my legacy out into  my little back yard, I turned up a spadeful of earth'in a corner, flung it into  tho grave, and stamped the soil down  on the .top of it.  "There," I  cried, "is an  end "of you!  You shall trouble 1110 no more!"  "Lawlor I"  I looked up from my ledger, and saw  the senior partner's secretary standing  in the doorway of thc-outer'office.  "Mr. Armbrust wishes to see you."  Such a Biimnionsi wns so unusual that  I felt a sudden sinking of the -heart, and  fell to wondering whether I hud in any  way neglected my du ty.  "Don't look so scared," added the secretary, kindly, "he's not going to fire  you."  When I entered Mi*. Armbrust's private'office I saw that he was nofc alone.  .Seated in, one of the deep leather arm  chairs was an elderly man, with a keen,  clean-shaven, face. Ho looked liko an  American,; and yot there was something,  uiidefinably foreign about him.  "Sit down, Mr. Lnwlor," said my employer. "I am about to entrust a some-,  what dilliculttask to you. Thisr is Mr.'  Allsopp, head of the Amsterdam diamond house of that name. Perhaps you  will explain matters, Mr. Allsopp. I  I hink you will find' Jlr. Lawlor entirely  trustworthy."  I blushed at the unexpected compliment.  "Tlie matter can be explained in a few  ivords, Mr. Lawlor," said the stranger.-  -You havo heard of the Eisselburg din-'  Miondsf No? You surprise me. They'  *.rc a pair of large blue stones, quite  matchless), belonging to the reigning  house of that little principality.  "About a year ago bhe Archduke, being  pressed for money, commissioned us to  -ell one of the gems privately. Hc  stipulated for $200,000 and that tho purchaser should not divulge the identity of,  tho stone. The price was reasonable,-  but the other condition made a sale a  matter of some diliiculty. At last I got  a. customer, an American, a most remarkable looking man. He wasi willing  ���������to comply with the conditions���������in fact,  he was as anxious ns we were that strict  Isecrecy should be preserved. He paid  tho price demanded, and between you and'  me lie got something of a bargain.  ' "Not long tijjo the Archduke, 83 you  iniay have seen in the papers, acquired- n;  .wife and a large fortune. He is anxious  to recover the stone, and has commissioned rne to act for him. I have ascertained that a blue diamond,. answering'  itho description in every respect, was'  passed through the customs, great secrecy  being urged by the proprietor, evidently  the same man who purchased it froni  us. He gave a wrong name nnd address,  however, and I have lost trace of him.

That  will cov  and  I' shrugged my 'shoulders. "God  knows," I said, "ite died several months  ago.   He was my uncle."  "Your uncle? We'have been fortunate  In our selection of an agent. And the  diamond?"  \ "God knows," I said again. "I srtood  at his dying' bedside���������I was his only living relative���������and he told me how he had  left his money.'-'It'seemed to me at the  time an absurdly small sum, not much  Wore-than a couple of thousand. The  story of the diamond explains the mystery, but he never spoke of it."  "And did you inherit?" enquired Mr.  'Allsopp.  I laughed bitterly. "Oh, yes, I inherited, I said, "but neither money nor  diamonds. My uncle was good; enough to  leave ine his photograph, .which you hold  in your'hand, and his glass eye. We hnd  quarreled, and I suppose that was his  way of revenging himself nt the last'. He  made a grim joke, when I wns a child,  about leaving me the eye.

I suppose he converted his money into a  valuable diamond so that he could easily  carry it about with him -or conceal it.  It may be hidden in the house."  "It was not mentioned in the -will?"  "No. I received a copy from Uie executor."  "And you are the next of kin?"  I stared at Mr. Allsopp, open-mouthed.  This wasi a new light with n vengeance.  Why���������if that diamond could be found it  was mine. To think.that-.three.-hundred  thousand dollars, belonging to me by  law, was lying hidden somewhere!

Then taking a small magnifying glass from his pocket, ho exnrn  irred it carefully.  "Ha-hl" he said. "It is as I suspected  Tt ha3 been made for the purpose.

Around the center was a line, like a  fine hair, showing whore the two halvs-;  were joined together.  Mr. Allsopp eut my inspection short.  Enveloping the eye in Iris handkerchief,  he twisted hard on it. I noticed how  the sinews on the back of the uppei  hand stood out.

Mrs. Humphry Ward is known to the  world chiefly as a novelist, yet one of  the most active aspects of her life is  ter philanthropic work rrmon^ the settlements of London.

While  tho readers of England and America  nave been following with unabated interest the fortunes of Julie T.e Breton in  "Lady Rose's Daughter" during the summer months, the author has been quietly and unostentatiously pumiing hat  >cherncs for the amelioration and gladdening of the joyless lives of the children in the neighborhood of Blooms-  bury.  Mary MncLane is nt it again. Hei  publishers proiiii.it tlrat before the ona  of thc month we shall have a new book  from her radium-tipped pen. culled "My  Friend, Annabel Lee." They write that  the young lady lias been living quietly  in Boston, working orr this book. It is  hard to imagine Mary doirrg anything j  quiatly.  Miss Corelli is always funny when she  13 hysterical, and she" is nearly always  hysterical. Her loud protestations  against the desecration of Stratford by  a Carnegie free library were the first  act of a howling farce which has now-  reached its climax. Sidney Lee, a scholar whose greatest fault "is that he is  quite incapable of hysteria or any other  manifestation of feeling, says that the  cause of Miss Corelli's objection is that  she once tried to get the site in dispute  for a free library of her own, but found  the price too high. Mis3 Corelli, in 0  voice shriller than ever, retorts that Mr.  Lee is a mean thing, and calls on her  solicitors to hale him to the courts.  Then she writes another pamphlet, calls  It "The Plain Truth About the Stratford-  on-Avon Controversy," and sends it out  as her final vindication.

Home ucwr go ueyoiid the "prentice"  stage, some advance and attain all the  honors in the gift of the profession.  That newspaper work claims the greater number is due to the fact that newspapers pay better than any other journals. But whether in the stress and excitement of work on a morning paper, or,  following the quieter routine of a weekly, or the more literary duties of 8  monthly, in no other calling are there  such ��������� possibilities: not: so much for fortune or for ambitious advancement, nt-  for gaining an ever-deeper knowledge of  humanity; for giving and winning sympathy; for keeping in touch with growing and widening -movements-'.in. which  the worker may share.  London Editors Who Arc Women.  Mr. Rudolph de Cordova sketches thi  women editors of London, with portraits  in "Cassell's Magazine."    lie says:  "Among the 'publications thus editcc  are the 'Sunday Times,'- by Mis. V. A  Beer; the 'Westminster Budget,' by Mis-  Hulda Friederiehs, in conjitrictiorr wit-  Mr. F. Carruthers Gould; 'JJaby and Wo  manhood,' by Mrs. Ada S. iSaliin; tin  'Xursing Eecord,' by Mrs. Bedford Fen  wick; 'Mvra's Journal,' by Miss J  l-Ieale; the 'Lady,' by .Miss "Rita Shell:  tho 'Ladies' Field,' by Mrs. E. MacJon  aid; the 'Green Sheaf,' bv iliss Pamela'  Colman. Smith; the 'Onlooker,', by Mrs  ITarcourt Williamson j and the 'Church,  woman,' in part by Miss Gertrude Ireland  Blnckbume." '  He rightly gives tire place of honor tc  Miss Friederiehs.   He'says:  "The first woman journalist to bc en  gaged on exactly the same terms, both  with regard to work and to pay, ns tin  men on the staff of air important Lon  don daily paper with which she was connected, is Miss Hulda Friederiehs. Of  all the woman journalists in London it  is safe to say she is tho most brilliant  linguist. Indeed, it was her facility ir  tongues which won her her place on the-  'Pall Mall Gazette.' Having got ae  quaintcd with Mr. Stead when he wa;  about to edit that paper, he asked hei  to join him as his secretary, and in e  little while she began contributing to thi  paper. Mr. Stead made no difference be  tween his contributors on account o!  sex. He exacted precisely the saim  slnndnrd-of-work -from- nren and -women.  Mr.   Balfour's   Gallantry.

Then she took hold of the wlreel  of her machine, pressed with her small  foot the bulb that made the horn toot  gruffly, nnd swiftly she shot after Mr.  Balfour.  Soon the great car overtook the carriage, and halted. The young girl, an old  friend of Mr. Balfour's, extended l*er  hnnd. and. as lie took it, she said reproachfully :  "You passed me a while ago without  looking at me."  With a gallant smile and Inclination off  the head,  tlie Premier nnswer-v! :  "If I had looked at you 1 couldn't have  passed you."  Praise for the Germans.

The Most Popular Viceroy.  -"Lord iliidley, who'-is considered the  most popular Viceroy Ireland has ever  had, is a remarkable man in many ways.,  lie is one of'the richest peers in Great  Rritnin. He has no need of his salary of  $100,000 a year 03 Lord Lieutenant of  Ireland. Indeed, the cost of maintaining  his vice-regal office far exceeds that  sum. His collieries in the "Black Country" alone return him over $200,000 o  year, and he also owns deposits of minerals in Staffordshire and Worcester-  f-hire, iron works, agricultural estates in  various parts of Krig'and, and plantations in Jamaica and olher West Indian  islands.' Shortly after Lord Dudley was  made Viceroy he toured Ireland in his  automobile with Lady. Dudley, and when  they returned to Dublin he had made  'hosts'of. friends everywhere, arrd there  was hardly a phase of Irish life with  which  he was unfamiliar.  A Shorter and Faster Route.  On the coast of North Pembrokeshire-  the Great Western Railway Company ������re  quietly carrying out a scheme with the  intention of creating a shorter and faster  route to Ireland.
