" Victoriajbridge is over 3,000 yards  long and connects Montreal with the  mainland to the south.  " Niagara suspension bridge has  two stories.-  " The Atlantic Coast is most useful.  It has splendid-communication inland  by railways, but hns one great drawback, most of it i.s frozen   up  in  the  winter.

Raise  the  calves    from    your    best  cows.  Sell or fatten all your poor cows.  Keep your herds in a healthy condition.  Feed and milk regularly.  Feed only wholesome food and loo'v  carefully to  the  drinking water.  Poor rood ami dirty water give tainl-  ej\ milk and impair the health of the  cow.  Keep your calves growing.  Don t feed  warm milk one day arid  cold the next.  If yorr want a good dairy cow for  your calf, get a good. long body wilh  well-sprung ribs  on  your  calf.  The coat of an animal is a good indication  of  its   condition.  Try to have some of your cows  "come in" in fall and winter.  Try to raise all the feed for vour  herd.

Last season, jyo2, was one prolific in  apple troubles. Fr.������-;t blister, spray injury, scab, pink rot and the ordinary  rots all proved too well-known sources  of loss to growers ami buyers. In Bulletin 235 of the siatioii at Geneva we  are told that two Miller new, or unusual, rots devclooeJ late ;n the season. These arc (i) a rot verv si.Tiiiar  to pink rot, and (2J a core rot'of Bard-  wins.  The first rot differs from pink roi  in showing no- whi-e or pink growth  on the spots under - ordinary conditions; in working quite deeply into lire  tissues, wliile pink rot'is a shallow tic-  cay; and in giving little or no -taste'  to the affected tissues, pink; rot making  the spots very bittii*. I.il.*.* pink rot.  it can enter the fruit only, through  broken skin, so prevention cf scab will  prevent  tlris  rot.'  For the core rot,  no cause and no  remedy have,  as yet,  been  discovered.  Tho famous EilTel Tower, which attracts  every foreign visitor in Purls, and which  stands out as a beacon light for 30 miles  around, is to disappear. Xhc jMuuiciixil  Committee o������ "Old Paris" has decreed  that the huge structure shall be pulled  down at tlio expiration in 1010 or the concession held by tlio Jiil'fol Tower- Company. Tiro city architects complain that  tho tower Interferes with their- plans for  the embellishment of tlie Champs de  Mars. On Uie other hand, after returning twice over in dividends the capital  invested on its construction, tho KirTcl  Tower has now ceased to pay as a financial investment, and tho company ls annually losing a considerable sum through  the expense of keeping the tower in repair. * Various schemes are now on foot  lor removing the edilico to some olher  place, lt has even been proposed Unit it  shall be acquired by the State and set up  somewhere on tiro French coast to net  ns;a sort of Kisnutic lighthouse It Is  doubtful, however, whether such a  scheme would bo seriously entertained by  tho authorities. Tlie alternative is lo  sell the tower to somo foreign capitalist  desirous of pulling it down and taking it  to America. Hero again- however, there  is a difiiculty, for the actual cost of tearing down the Eiffel Tower 1* estimated to  be not less than ������100.000, -wnllst tho cost  of re-erecting it would be n-t-iut the same.  Meanwhile, as tho tower 1* to bo pulled  down at latest in 1010. rr-nd as the company ls now expending a considerable  Bum on tho upkeep, it seems not unlikely  that an arrangement may be come to  with the city authorities by which the  tower will be pulled down within the next  year or two.

My  experience  with  cut bone as  a  food for fowls extends over two years  only with a flock of one hundred hens,,  writes   W.   F.   Adams,    in    Farmer's'  Voice.    Prior to that  time I  had  not  used cut bone, and my article is based-  on    tlid    percentage   oi   gain    in   the  growih, health and eggs of fowls over  the two years previous, when I did not  use cut bone; all other conditions for  the four years being about the same.  I get a'soup bone of "tlie: butcher,  shave off the meat (a little meat won't  hurt if you intend,.feeding as soon as  cut)-and I feed lhe sarne; day it. is cut.  Some people make the mistake of  using bones that have been boiled or  lain out -and sim-blcached..:./ t'orat oi  tlie most essential feeding value of the  bone has thus been lost, especially as  feed for growing chicks.  For growing chickens, after two  weeks old, I mix the bone meal with  corn chops, dampened"with curd liiiik.  (water will do), so that each bird gets  from half to one teaspoonful of the  bone meal, according to age.  "Extra .large and quick growth bone  in fowls means more meat, and more  meat means seven to ten cents per  pound. ���������  For laying hens I feed mixed as  above, only that each hen gets one  tablespoonful twice or three times a  week, according as I think they may  need an extra allowance. They noed  more when they are . laying regularly  or moulting.  Taking every advantage gained by  feeding bone;���������i.e., general health of  flock," quick growth of broilers, increase in amount of eggs, etc., ov:r  the two years bone was fed, I figure-it  ���������and I keep close accounts���������that ths  profit, derived is fifteen per cent, over  the profits of the two preceding j'ears.  This fifteen per cent, is attributed to  the bone feed, and the other increase  in profits was credited to the source1  from which they came.  Now don't feed any overdose at first,  or at any time for that matter; feci  regularly.  .Red Mites in the Poultry House.  The little red mite is a very serious  pest among chickens if it is allowed to  have the roam of the premises for a  short time, although it is one of the  easiest to guard against when proper  precautions are taken. We have known  cases where they have killed grown  hens and made life almost a burden  to their keeper, besides tormenting  horses and cows so they would turn  away from their feed. Just a few days  ago a young man was telling me his  little chicks had been all dying off, and  he believed it was lice and wanted to  know how to get rid of them. Upon  questioning him we found they were  mites. Kerosene oil as a remedy has  never been known to fail when properly used. , '  Many do not recognize the difierence  in the red mite and lice, which must  necessarily be considered when attempting to get rid of them. The louse  is at home on the body of the fowl  or chick, while the red mite breeds and  lives on the roosts, in nest boxes and  in the crevices of' the walls of the  poultry house or coops. We found  once that they had established themselves in one of our houses, and in a  short time, with a few gallons of kerosene oir and a whisk broom we killed  every one we could find, and as long  as we kept our chickens on that place  we never saw one again. Since that  time we made a practice of using  kerosene oil on the roosts and in nest  boxes, occasionally, and have never  had any to fight since. Warm days  are wonderfully helpful in the propagation of insect life.���������Indiana Farmer,  We often hear men say that they  are going to stop farming and go into business. They do not know what  they say. This expression is very  common, and can bc .heard every day.  Why is farming not a business, and  why should it not be classed as such ?  I go further and say that firming  should be classed as a profession, aud  one of the highest and most honcr-  able in  tlie professional line.  Some time ago 1 told some of my  friends and neighbors tljat I was going  to an agricultural college, and you  know what followed. Vou know how  I was laughed at and how they ridiculed the idea. Brrt I was not discouraged at this ; for all good things lrave  been strongly talked against. If I can  leave I will take a short course this  wirrter. I would like to know more  of my business. This country needs  farmers who arc more highly educated  and prepared for the work.  Farming as a business is the highest  occupation that a man can Iill, and  every farmer should think so.' He  should know that farming is the most  independent of all trades. The farmer feeds the whole population of the  globe, and so all are depending upon  him for food ; and if agriculture supplies food for all the vast number of  people in the large cities, is it hot  worthy of being called a business ?  Many times the farmers themselves  give tlieir business a low name, and  then the people of the city arc not going to praise it when the farmers arc  running it down. We farmers should  know that wc are engaged in the most  important work and business on the  earth, and while we are farming we  should not say, "We have no business,  we are only farming." By this some  might be led to believe that farming  is a sort of slavery, as it is when done  as many farmers manage it. When  done in an up-to-date way and by the  latest methods and improved machinery it is a pleasure. Why do we consider ourselves so low? Let us look  a little higher and know that we have  a business which is worthy of the highest honor. Above all, let us consider  our work as a business. It is a business, and we should know and realize  it.���������E. J. Waterstripc in N. Y. Tribune.

The hull of tho old battleship Bellclsls  which has rested for five weeks on til-  mud in Portsmouth Harbor, was ralsec.  yesterday, says Tho Graphic of October  9, and taken Into dock. Experiments  wore conducted on September i with tiro  object of testing tlte resisting qualities of  a new celluloid m-'-par.itlon against torpedo attack. A torpedo was attached to  the hull and fired by electricity, indicting  such extensive injury that lho vessel had  to be run ashoro on thc mud immediately.  Since then efforts have continuously been  made to raise tho Bellelslc and bring he:-  in for examination. It was. however-,  found to be almost impossible to deal with  the mud that oozed tlirough the rent in  the vessel's side.

These can bc had knocked down at almost   any   sawmill     for     about   eight  cents  each, and  they should not com  more than ten cents each made up. As  three boxes  hold  about  as  many apples  as  a  barrel, they  will    be    found  much cheaper than barrels at fifty cents  and   upwards.     The   boxes   should   he  well   and   strongly  nailed,   and   should  hold about forty pounds of fruit.    Thc  dimensions  of thc  boxes  used   by t'le  Grimsby   shippers   arc   nine   by  twelve  by   eighteen   inches,   while   the . IJritihh  Columbia standard box is ten by eleven  by  eighteen inches,  these being inside  measurements    in    both    cases.      Thc  boxes  should  be  made  of strong  material, not  less  than ���������five-eighths'of an  inch  thick  r'or  thc  curls,  and  not  Ies  than  thrcc-cighlhs  of an  inch  for  tiie  sides.     The   tops   should   have     strips  across thc ends to prevent the  weight  of  other  packages  piled   on  top   irom  bearing directly on thc fruit.    It is also usual  to  leave open corners at  thc  top and bottom for ventilation.    Little  or no packing material should bc used,  as purchasers like to find thc package  quite   full   of  fruit.    A   sheet  of  cardboard at the top and bottom will materially reduce  thc  amount of    injury  from bruises. But it should bc remembered that even in this year of scarcily  of barrels  it  will  not  do to ship  anything but  first-class  fruit in  boxes,  as  thc   reputation   of   thc   Canadian   box  and of the Canadian  trade in    general  will  greatly suffer if  inferior  or  common   fruit  is  exported   in  thc   box   or  any  fancy  package.���������Agricultural  Department,  Ottawa.  "Breeding "Lady Bugs."  About a year ago the United States  Government presented Mr. Wm. M.  Scott, the State entomologist of  Georgia, with twenty small insects  known as the Asiatic lady bug. It was  said to be an insect, imported from  Asia by the United States Department oi Agriculture, and was guaranteed to kill the San Jose scale rapidly, provided, of course, there were a  sufficient number of bugs. They were  discovered by one oi the Government  entomologists several years ago, and by  being very careful he managed to bring  several pairs to this country. These  pairs multiplied, and last year the Government furnished several of the Southern States with twenty bugs each.  Mr. Scott determined to try the  scheme and he took the bugs to Mar-  shallville, placed them in a wire cage  built: around a peach tree which was  Infected with the San Jose scale, and  now the State o: Georgia owns some  40,000 of the scale killers. Mr. Scott  is very proud of his colony and says  he will in a short time he enabled to  furnish every fruit grower in Georgia  with a supply. Where the bugs have  had an opportunity to get afler the  scale they have almost annihilated it.  For some time past the scale has  been playing havoc with the peach  trees in the State, and thousands of  trees have been completely killed or  dug up as a result of the dreaded dis-  ieas���������7=T=ri=7^The���������biigs=iar<*r=saidi������to���������be-  much better for the San Jose scale  than the kerosene spray and all other  remedies combined.���������Journal of Agriculture.

Milch co\vs---Smce November cows  that have calved have been kept separate, and, in addition to their ordinary  feed, have for the last two years been  getting 2 kilogrammes (4.40 lbs.) of  molassine meal. The quantity of the  milk was increased, and the quality unproved, and the animals were in perfect health  and condition.  M. P. Hoppe has made an exhaustive series of experiments at the University of Leipsic into the value of molasses in feeding milking cows. Those  used for the purpose were fed 2.50  kilogrammes (5.50 lbs.) per head per  diem. It was found to increase the  quantity of milk, but if 2.50 kilogrammes were exceeded the quantity '.'  butter was diminished, but not the percentage of casein, and the taste of both  milk and butter ivas not affected iu any  way.

"Izetta,"' she continued softly,  "the world is wicked; there are men  who have hcGped to make it so; there  are crimes too dark for young minds  to fully comprehend; but the cruel-  eat of all crimes is the blighting of  innocent gi     ood."   -  Izetta's aps parted, but no sound  issued from them.  "There nre men," continued blind  MarKuiretti', sadly, "who are attracted to a pretty lace; beauty is often a  fatal gift child; lhe voice is tender,  the smile sweet. I huve not wondered they win the love oi* young girls,  butj the folly does not rest "there, Iz-  ette; they soon lire o** them;,can you  think whal would happen then, chifd,'"  "No," came the giri's answer, in a  lo-.v voice, something like the truth  of Blargurrettu's meaning flashing  across her brain.

''Abel tells mo jot; are fair to look  upon. Ue was young and reckless;  your beauty was the' fatal rock; it  .was admiration,  not  love."  Izetta recalled her husband's every  word and look.

"God  knows  best, child."  "I cannot believe he could be guilty  of such a wrong, Mrs. .Moore I If  you had only-known Alderic,, you  would have felt huw iiiipos-sibl-Ts il  would have been jor liim to deceive  any one.

"You will wonder, child, why I have  so lil tie faith in the promises of men.  Do yoii see a motto with the simple"  word 'mo: h?r' worked in wort-ted  flowers, that hangs on yonder wall?''  "Yes." answered lzelta, pressing  the worn hand she held.  "That was my Amy's handiwork;  she -was my only ehild. You cannot  know the depths of mother-love, Iv-  etta; you cannot realize how I loved my only child���������I .worshipped her;  I often think that is why God look  her from me. Amy wa.s fair and good  ��������� she was just about your age when  the dark cloud of her life settled over  her. Love caused it all, Izetta���������  love caused il all.  "This was the way it came about. 'A  stranger was ri.ling through Silvernook; when opp .site this gate, hi.s  horse slipped and the rider fell. We  took the stranger in and cured for  him. Theiy told me he was young and  handsome; but I took no heed; it did  not strike me then as strange. '     '  "He lingered, after he recovered,  many a day���������I shall never forget the  day he left. ��������� As the night came on, I  missed my Amy. I cannot describe  to tyou the agony of that day.

Two      soft  arms   stole  round   my   neck,   a   tired  head  fell on my  breast, and a   voice,  I scarcely knew was Amy's, sobbed:  " 'Do not censurt���������rae, mother, J  have come horue to di.!.'  '���������'What of your husband, Amy?' I  cried.  '��������� 'Do not speak of him, mother.'  "Little by little she til.l me all; of  the morning they had left, and of  the little, dwarfed minister who had  married them in the murniug light���������  o.' the lew short weeks tlint had been  like a dream of heaven to her. Then  came the horrriiL*. awakening. .Saying  he would soon return, he left her^ He  never relume!; instead, he wrote  her a letter which oruke her trusting  heart, con*'es.-rug that the marriage  she so iutly believed and trusted in  was no marriage, that the dwarf who  married them was no minister. A  bank- note was inclosed in the letter,  which read:  " "1 would indeed undo the past if  it was In my power, Amy, but it is  too late. I cannot. Go back to Silvernook, Amy, and forget me.'  "Poor child, she came back to her  mother's love, but she never forgot  . him���������she died with his name on/ her  lips. You can see a grave, a little  whito cross .beneath the trees. That  is Amy's grave. Her poor old father  never was the same. His heart ia  buried in Amy's grave.  "The name of our child haa seldom  been spoken between .us; our sorrow  is too deep for words. Now you will  understand, 'Izetta, how my heart  yearns coward'you��������� how 1 would  shield your tru.ting heart from every cruel stab."  Izetta lafd her head on Marguir-  ette's shoulder.  "She was yo- ig, as I am," she  said. "She could not live without  her love; I cannot live, without mine."  ' "She might havo lived," answered  Margutrette, "had she come to me  for comfort .when the first stab of  grief fell upon her. She pined away  for want of a loving word of courage and strength. You must look to  God to be righted, if you liave been  wronged, my child. Promise me you  will look {or guidance  up there."  "I cannot believe I have been so  wronged, 'Mrs. Moore. I solemnly believe (t was a minister o*f| God who  married Alderic and me."  "There are others, child, who have  been just so trustful."  "Mrs. Moore," said Izetta, solemnly, "in heaven I have an angel mother. She could not have allowed a  c-ime so dark to fall on her helpless  child. I have never done a single  wrong for which I   should atone."  "Alas! it is the good who seem to  be called upon lo suffer most," said  Marguiretto, sadly.  "I shall always believe I am hi.s  wife in the sight of heaven and in the  sight of man," said Ize.tta, firmly.  "That is the one great thought that  will help mo to bear my life bravely.  It may be with me as it wa? with  your poor Amy. lie may have ceased  to love mc, but for all that I believe  I am his lawful wife. The world  shall proclaim it. I never could die  with the least stain clouding the  name my mother gave me in all its  purity.

Soon anoth -r facL    became    apparent .to Izetta; she must not     remain  longer under .the flute- mtfcer's roof.  Abel's scan y la.nr'ngs sciroey  provided the nccebsaiies of life for  himself and wife; she must not add  to their -burden.  She made one more effort, with  Abel's help, to find the former nurse  of her Husband. The endeavor proved useless'.  "if have known every one in Silvernook this many a year. I never knew  but two who were nurses; one was  good old Aunty Becket, as we used  to call her; she died fully forty years  ago. Then there is Mrs. Ryegate,  who, fn her early days, lived up at  Ulvesrord Mansion, but never anywhere else, so-'twas not she. No ono  hereabouts ever heard of a Mr. Ross!  Ahl child, there is too deep a mystery here for Honest country folk like  us to probe."  "Shall il have to give up the  search?" asked Izetta, pitifully, sick  and weary at heart.  "I don't 6po what cUe you can do,"  replied 'Abel. "Could you pick up a  grain of sand and fling it into that  rushing river, with the hope of finding it. again? He has gone out of fyour  life, child. There is nothing left you  but to forget."

I might  not know the difference between one  grain of sand and its mates, but, ohl  Mr. Moore, my love would teach me  by its sweet thrillings, when Alderic  is near me; he is like none oilier."  "Was there ever a lovo so grand,  so passionate, so sublime as Urn was?'*  thought Abel, in simple wonder; he  could oot comprehend ils great  depths.  One great prayer rose up from  Abel's heart that these two should  never meet, if, perchance, fates  e'er willed it otherwise. He trembled  for the young girl standing there, so  beautiful, 60 pas.-ionate, so loving: he  little 'knew what lay in store for her.  ���������Izetta began fo look around her,  .wondering what shu should do.  Those little white hands were unused to toil, other than Ihe pleasant  task of drawing the sweetest melody  from piano, harp or guilar.  ���������Her grandfather had been wont to  say that her voice alone was a fortune  to"her.  ���������Alas! alasl it was worse than    use-  He deeply piiied her, wi.-drinpr I..  knew her history. Hi was sure smur  great sorrow had crept into her li.',;  and he longed to comfort her.

She oould not spin, neither could  she knit; these were the principal .industries of the village. ���������  She had invested her little store in  an advertisement as governess, in an  adjacent city paper, but nothing had  come of it. She had dispensed wilh  all the pretty ornaments her husband  had given heT, .wailing patiently in  the hope that some one would want  her who read tli-tt advertisement, but  all in vain; oni., the plain gold band  Alderic had placed upon her finger,  remained.     .        .   ��������� ...  "I would not part wilh that," she.  told herself, "if I were to die of hunger; when I gaze tipon it, this 'little band reminds me, even though  deserted, that I am an honorable  wife. I have done no wrong; this-,  must  be  my  passport to  hea /en."  One day  the pastor sent for Ize.tta;  he  had  said  she tnujt  not  hope; tyet  why had he sent for her so suddenly?  She H'ted  the  latch of  the cottage  gate and entmed.  Dr. Morleifrh was among his flowers, care'*ully pruning the dead leaves  and   withered  tendrils.  "Would there were gentle hands to  prune away all that is harmful from  the buds of life's irartlen,'- he thought,  as he looked up ber.ignly upon seeing  who hit- vi- ilor wa.s. He never forgot Uie mournful expression of the  beautiful eyes thai soarchod his face  so eagerly "for one ray of hope. ���������  "Sit down, my dear," surd Dr.  Morleigh, motioning lo a rustic garden coat beneath a spreading cedar;  "I have news for you.*'  Fur one. bi-iex inatant the hope that  it mitrhl be from Alderic, her husband,  rose in her hi art.  A tide of color rushed across the  white, face, her breast heaved, arrd  her little white hands were clasped  convulsively together.  "Il is about a skuarion," continued Dr. Slorleiirh. chti'tily.

Tha wonder of radium in ��������� still before us; und now , up comra a  new elonnent���������it Ic-.jt ni>w from  the newspaper standpoint. A������ 11  mutter of fact, says "Current literature,"  it is quite <as old' as radium, having been  discovered almost at the inne time snd  by the name person*!���������Professor and  Madame Curie, hike radium, it is a constituent of pitchblende and hns many  ("haracteriutics similar to that element.  The cause of the prc-ent interest in po-  lo'iium is due -largely lo certain experiments recently conducted by Prof-iW.  Marlcwitlil before tire Chemical Conirre-is  at Berlin. Since then the paper- have  been taken up with articles rn.tkirr; all  manner of'claim- for tiro new clement,  tlie most persi-tlrf'tit of which is that it  will cure blind-rc*--. Concerning tlris element "Electricity" says:���������  Scientists as yet ur'trer.itand loo little  of the marvelous proper-tic-'of this new  clement lo venture iiu.re thnn v-i���������ue predictions of what spheres of future 11-3-  fuini'ss it may ill!, but it is not improbable that it may bc found to perform  lite present functions of* the so-callrd  l.oentgch or X-rays far more powerfully and without thc somewhat embroils apparatus now e--ential to their  use. In a much higher degree even than  radium it possesses the property of shining in the dark, and although it is  known tint actual particles in'rriitcsim-  ally small arc b"ing shot out from it  continually���������a fact Which is proved by  magnetic experiments���������tlris strange substance does not seem to exhaust it-Mf  nor to lose its luminous power with the  passage of time. Here, therefore, is a  liint, at least, of the future possibility of  a constant and brilliant illuminnnt gen-  crated 'without heat or combustion.  Polonium is more valuable than radium, and Professor Curie himself, who  has a chemically pure specimen of radium not larger than a buckshot and  weighing less than half a grain, would  not selfit for $20,000.  At the meeting in Berlin, Profes-or  Markwald exhibited a bit of polonium  weighing 13-100 of a grain, which w.i-  produced from two tons of uranium nt n  cost of $73. Be then proceeded to give  a marvelous exhibition of the powers 01  his speck of polonium. It intercepted  u strong current of electricity p-tssin1.-  ,������hrough the air from tire generator tc  the receiver, thc nir cea-ing to bc a con  ductor for tho Hashes. The room wa-  then- darkened, and pieces of barium  platinum, nrrd zinu-bler.de, placed ner:  the polonium, glowed with a bright  greenish light. There is no doubt that  the discovery of polonium is a mo-t val 11  able one, although no one carr say aa ye!  ���������how it can be adapted to practical use.

Mr. Wright, was in the thickest o!  tho fight at Chickaniagua and it was  here that, as ,the result of a volley ot  Bhots poured in upon him. he received  seven wounds, the scar ot each shot  being still plain. One ball entered his  body under the right arm, lodging in  his liver; another entered the right  elbow and ranged downward into the  waist, where the bull remains to thia  day: another entered his right thigh:  another grazed his left thumb and  three balls entered his breast, and,  passing through his body, came out  under the left shoulder. All of thosS  balls passed near the heart and Mr.  Wright was left upon the field for  dead. He lay in that position without food or drink or attention in any  form from 5 o'clock on Saturday evening ��������� until 9 o'clock the fol-  Vowing Monday night. It - was  stwen years before ho could  do anything toward his own support  His wonderful vitality ��������� wtss not to-be  subdued and he triumphed over death  eo to speak, and to-day is as much aliva  as some of his comrades who did noi  receive a wound during the war.

Perusset, daughter a.  * favorite mai I of the flighty Empress.  Napoleon had brought the 1 ace from  Italy. He often brought her beautiful  things on his return from ii successful  campain,' and Josephine never asked  himhow he had got them, for she though**  ���������pei-h-ips he would not care to tell.  It was a large squar of thc finest old  point   do Venise,   and   Josephine,   as  soon a-s she had it iriher possession, sent  for M. Duplan, her nian-niilliner, and  asked hiin to make with it a certain  fichu and a pcplum. "Impossible. Vour  Majesty." answered Duplan "the piec-  is too large, and we could not arrange  It gracefully,",,  "���������."Well, cut it then !"  "Cut a treasure  such  ns  that!  Or,  .   madam, I could not do such a thing!  ������������������Konsence!" crieil Josephine. The laca  was draped on her shoulders; she kuev.*  how she wanted it; so she calmly took a  pair of scUsors.and i"  a second had it  r>et right, while long   narrow pieces oi  the priceless stuff fell round her.  At this moment the Emperor entered  the room, "Canniba. e!" he cried.  And he gave her a soundingsUtponher  violently rouged cheeks, which wero  soon covered with tears.  Duplan discreetly withdrew and the  t-ice was thrown into a chest of drawers  Josephine could not bear the sight ol"  it after that, and at last gave it to Mm*-*.  Perusset, her favorite maid.  The odd bits of it have now been told  for 52.000. Another bundle fetched  H.000. The passion of Josephine for  lace caused frequent scenesbetweetr her  and Napoleon. Slie would have lace,  and she seldom let anything stand in tht?  way of aquiring it.  It is even said that this frivolous fancy  helped to bring about her downfall' fix  Napoleon, who at first would not hear o.  forsaking her. one day said to the Prince  De Wagram: "The cup is full ivw.

THE   WOMEN   OF   FRANC"-*.  \  ���������.  ���������The Powei-tul Xoniteuce 'Tney "Save J**xei������  cluutl in Politic,! ami Society.  At all times, in Erance, women havo  exercised potent influence, politically,  socially and sentimentally. The country of Jeanne d'Arc ha* never lacked  heroliLoa and martyrs. During lho  relgr.s of Catherine de Medici's miserable sons, tlieir Italian mother, by her  Absolute cruel and narrow-minded policy, plunged the country into the horrors of St. Bartholomew, which wero  only equalled by the excesses of tho  ltoign ot Terror. During the corrupt  i-oigus of Louis XIV. and Umis XV.  tho influence of women at Court and  therefore all over Prance, wns paramount and entirely pernicious io the  welfare of the people.  Women in all ages have matched  the men, so as noble aspirations, unselfishness, love of justice and right  were at a discount among the men who  crowded tho courts of tho licentious ���������  Bourbons, where the debauchery and  depravity wero unparalleled since tho  era of Tiberius and Commodus, thov  throngs of titled courtesans merrily,  joined' their royal and aristocratic  lovers ln spending the revenues exacted from the miserable peasants with  tears of blood, untiPsimilar tears wero  extorted from them in turn, by the revolution thoy 'originated.  Many generations of bad government  by kings, courtesians and couriers, the  oppressions of the rich clergy and  nobles who monopolized all that was  worth having in the State, and exacted their taxes and seignorial dues  from those who at last had nothing  left to tax, culminated In the intense  misery of the years Immediately preceding 1789, the flrst year of deliverance, and bred tn the hearts of the  victims a ferocity of hate for their  oppressors, a fierce love of the principles of liberty, and an overwhelming desire for its immediate fruition.  In 1789 women of all classes threw  themselves with ardor into the great  revolutionary movement, and by their  burning enthusiasm intensified the  zeal of tlie men and urged them on to  heoric deeds of self-sacrifice and duty  to suffering humanity.  Women of noble and unselfish ideals  such as Mme. Roland, or of stainless  life and character like Charlotte Cor-  day, or the fascinating, fearless, unhappy Theroigne de Mericourt, the  heroine of the women's march to Versailles, or the women of the people  full of hate and desire of vengeance,  who crowded around the guillotine in  1793, uttering ferocious shouts and  counting with exultation the ghastly  heads as they fell before Uie axe ot  Sanson, were one and all animated  by the same passionate love of liberty,  the mother of all virtues. All were  ready to sacrifice their lives gladly^for  freedom conscious of the righteousness of their cause and of its ultimate  triumph.  Many unthinking superficial people  even now who have never known what  it is to suffer and be despoiled to support the luxury and vice of. tyrants,  while shuddering at the excesses of  tho Reign of Terror, entirely ignore  ,the causes of the sanguinary deeds  which stand forth so luridly. They  do not realize that nothing but a terrible baptism of blood could have regenerated such a corrupt country and  purged lt from Hs grossness and selfish Indifference to wrong-doing. It  was civil war in another form. When  the day of vengeance came, how was  it that the women seemed more ferocious than the-men? The answer is  very simple.

The fair plaintiff's counsel in the  (breach-of-promise case thought that ho  ���������would make life a burden to the unfortunate young man who was the un'  /willing defendant.  ���������**��������� "Do you mean to say," he asked after  A lot of embarrassing questions, "that  after yon had been absent for au entire month you did not kiss the plaintiff, to whom you were engaged to bo  '���������married, wheu you flrst saw her oo  {four return?"

"One of them would, I know."  ���������..���������"Ah, indeed!    Why should he?"  "Because he was present when I first  B������w her. He was at the gate when I  rode up, and she stuck her head out ol  the second-story window, and I asked  her, 'How d'ye do?' and said I'd be back  to supper ln half an hour. I'm no giraffe.'*'  Some Frenchmen were boasting' ot  their "affairs of honor," when one of  them declared that he had inflicted  upon an antagonist the most dreadful  fate that a duellist had ever met.  \ "How was lt?" asked everybody.  1 "l was ln a hotel," he went on, "and  I chanced to insult, a total stranger.  It turned out that he wae a fencing  master.  " 'One or the other of us,' hc declared  fn fearful wrath, 'will not go out ot  this room alive!'  "'So let lt be!' I shouted ln ro-  ���������jponse, and then I melted out of the  room, looked the door behind me and  left him thene to die.'!  ��������� ���������-���������������-���������-������������������������������������--  ���������Died of a Broken Heart.  In tho old days, when the practice  of medicine was according to a lot of  illogical    empirical    notions,  "broken  heart" was often set down as causing  death.    Later,  in the youth of medical science, it'was declared that thero  was no such thing as heartbreak, and.  It ls not so many years even now since  the doctors found out that excessive  emotion    does,    sometimes,    actually,  cause rupture of the marvelous muscle that,  strongest and  at the  same  time most delicate of the human body,  6ends the life blood coursing and pulsating through every artery of the entire system.   It seems to be agreed by  doctors    that    Mrs. Agnes Wolf,   ot  Brooklyn, died of broken heart    the  other day, for the^-certificate of death  rsxive  "heart  failure    and    excessive  grief as the cause.   Mrs. Wolf's grief  was on account of the death   of   ber  mother.   'It was in  June that relief  "came to the elder"woman��������� who" had"  suffered  from  a  painful  illness    for  months, and the younger was  never  herself again.    After  her  death  her  funeral was delayed several days, la.  order to enable the doctors to definitely decide upon the cause of her death.  It is not often that heartbreak operates   so   slowly.     Usually lt   causes  d-eath ln a few hours. If not instantly.  One of the saddest deaths that might  properly be   spoken of as    due to a  broken heart occurred on September 1,  ten years ago, In, Cadiz, O.   The victim  was Miss Alice McClba, a young and  exceedingly intelligent girl ot a rather  nervous  temperament.    She was  engaged to marry James Nash, a young  man who was given to joking.   On the  Saturday evening prior to his sweet-;  heart'e death young Nash called upon  her, according to his weekly custom.  During the entire evening he allowed  his rather clumsy wit full play. When  he was ready to go, after kissing tho  girl  good-night,  he  turned suddenly,  and said: , ,  "Well, Alice, I guess I won't como  to see you again. We've had a good  time playing engaged, haven't we?  ���������We'll be friends all our lives now, but  that's all." . |  Alice looked search ingly ln his face,  aud then sank to the floor in a spasm,  dying in thirty-six hours.���������New York  Press. <  CITY OF REVELSTOKE  The City Onuncil is prepared to  receive, lenders for the supplying of  ���������ievwity-fire (75) cords of wood, Hi* and  hemlock in four foot lengths, to he  Iflivured at the Power House, piled  (ir measuring where directed by the  '���������I-ttisiger.

r Odd Origin of Sea Terms.
.' Hov.' many people imagine that
What familiar word "admiral" ia
jprything but a thorough English
krord? Probably tho last origin any
(would give it is Eastern. Yet its deriva-
|Moh is simply "Emir el Bagh," which is
{Arabic for Lord of the Sen.
' V; There is hardly a language thnt wc
Cave not put under contribution1 for sea
Manns. The names of thc various officers
jjjif a. ship Illustrate this most vividly.
"Captain" comes straight from the
"Latin "caput," a head; hut "mate" owes
nothing to nny dead language The word
is almost Identical with the Icelandic
"-nati," -whicli means a companion or
���equal. The derivation of "coxswain"
{would never be suspected. Coxswain wat
originally the man who pulled the aftor
oar of the captain's boat, then known
as a cock boat. "Cock bont" is a corruption of tlio word "coracle," nnd, as
most people know, thc coracle ls a small
���round boat used for fishing on sorrre of
the Welsh rivers, such ns tho Wyo and
TJsk. So coxswain comes to us from the
Welsh. Other languages nre also pressed
Into tho service.
"Commodore" is simply the Italian
"Comnuindatore," or commander, and
"naval- cadet" was originally the French
"capdet," which, going n step further
back, has the snmo origin as the word
oaptnin. The reason of this apparent anomaly is that originally all naval cadets
were younger sons of noble families, who
���erved as privates previous to obtaining
their commission.
There was never such a person ns
"Davy Jones," though we frequently
tear of his locker. One ought to talk of
"Duffy Jonah's locker." "Duffy" is the
fWest Indian negro term for spirit or
ghost, while "Jonah" refers to the,prophet of that name.
��� "Dog watch" is another curious ense
pt a term gradually corrupted out of its
original form. Originally it wns "Dodge
���watch," so descrilied because it lasts
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 t'ho same hours. "Dog watches," so
called, are from 4 to 0 and 0 to 8 in thc
Sailors call meat "junk." It Is not a
.complimentary term, for junk is nautical
;for a rope's end. Some 3,000 years ago
Topes were made out of bullrushes, for
���which the Latin word is"junciis."
Nowadays we tnlk of "porf'nnd "starboard." Originally it;was "larboard" and
"starboard.". Starboard- has nothing to
do with stars. ; It is really "stcor board,"
iAnglo-Snxon for "steer sido," because in
.old galleys steered by an oar the oar

Thrift is generally acknowlcdgtl to bo
one of the leading characteristics of tho
natives of Fifeshire, and it never was
more forcibly oxcinplilicd than in tho
person of David Hatton, a native of Dunfermline, who actually proved that even
mice, those acknowledged pests of mankind, could be made not only to earn
their own living, but nlso to yield a respectable income to their owners, says
the "Scotsman."    .
About thc year 1820 this gentleman
actually erected a small mill at Dunfermline for tho manufacture of thread���a
mill worked entirely by mice. It waa
���while visiting Berth prison in 1812 that
Jlr, Hntton lirst conceived this remarkable idea of utilizing mouse power. In
an old pamphlet of tho time, "The Curiosity Coll'ce Boom." lie gave nn account
ef tiro way in which the idea dawned on
"In the summer of the year
1.112," he wrote, "I hnd occasion to be in Berth, nnd when
inspecting the 'toys antl trinkets that
Mere manufactured by tho French prisoners tin thc depot there my attention
vas involuntarily attracted by a littlo
toy house with a wheel in the gable ol
it that"was runnine rapidly round, impelled by the insignificant gravity of n
common house mouse. For a shilling I
purchased house, mouse nnd wheel. Inclosing it in a handkerchief, on my journey homeward I wns compelled to contemplate its favorite amusement. But
how to apply half-ounce power, which is
the weight of n mouse, to a useful purpose was, the difficulty. At length the
manufacturing of sewing thread aeemed
the most practicable."....
Mr. Hntton had one mouse that ran
the amnzing distance of eighteen miles a
day, but he proved that an ordinary
mouse could run ten and one-half iniles
on an average. A hnlfpenny's worth of
oatmeal wns sufficient for its support
for thirty-five days, during which lt ran
7.10 half miles. He had actually two
mice constantly employed in the making
of sewing thread for more than a year.
The mouse threadmill waa so constructed
that the common house mouse was enabled to make atonement to society for
past offences by twisting, twining, and
reeling from 100 to 120 threads a day,
Sundays not excepted.
To perform this task the little pedestrian had to run ten and one-half miles-,
and this journey it performed with ease
every dny. A halfpenny's worth of oatmeal served one of these threadmill culprits for the long period of Ave weeks.
In thnt time it made 3,350 threads of
twenty-five inchesj and ns a penny was
paid to women for every hank made in
the ordinary wny,; the mouse, at that
rate, earned 9 pence every 6.x weeks,
just one farthing a dny, or 7 shillings
and 6 pence.a year. Taking 6 pence off
for board and allowing 1 shilling for machinery, there was clear yearly profit
from eneh mouse of 6 shillings.
Mr. Hatton firmly intended to apply
for the loan, of the old empty cathedral
In Dunfermline, which would have held,
he calculated, ten thousand mouse mills,
sufficient room being left'for keepers and
some hundreds of spectators. Death,
however, overtook the inventor before
his marvelous project could be carried
out. ���.

The newspaper editors and very
special correspondents, who have lately
- been discussing Pupal possibilities with
such owlish gravity, must have felt rather cheap when tho news came that
Giuseppe Sarto, whom t'hey had nevci
even heard of, had been elected aa thc
two hundred and sixty-fourth Pope, under
the name of Pius the Tenth���a name, b\
the way, endued with no particular odor
of sanctity by its last Pupal possessor
But tho new Pius scouts to bu a man oi
character. "Cultured,"       "religious,''
"mild-mannered," "pious," "a country
mouse," "quiet," "kind-hearted," "liberal," "timid"���these are some of the epithets applied to the late Patriarch of
"Venice and now Pope of liome. The
same authorities, however, deny him
political shrewdness, diplomatic , craft,
and executive ability. They predict tha*
ho will bc not a statesiuanly but a "re
ligious"- Pontiff.
. All interest at this time, of course,
centers on the policy of Pius, with reference to the Italian Government. It if
already clear thut it will differ ln nc
vital particular from that of Leo thi
Thirteenth. Tlio new Pontiff is even
quoted-as saying significantly: "My firs:

Young and bashful Homy Dorn and

Although Jenny spoke very mildly,
she frightened the bashful swain, id-
leaned as far back as-his arms would

saw no encouragement. It did not occtn
to him that Jenny might stand farther
from the fence. - *But Jenny's mild admonition was her only effort to prevent

Henry started. He .wondered..-how' ho
oould have been so bold. He let go his
hold on the fence and stood back.
"Our 'brindle cow," he said, "had a calf
last night."
To this bit of information Jenny made
no Teply. She dropped her arms on to
the top rail and looked far beyond the
easily discouraged Henry.

"I ain't mad about y're talkin' about t

"Y're mad from somep'n. I reckoned

Henry began a process of . (Twinging
backward and forward. Several tunes
he approached within a few inches of
her lips. Sho neither moved nor spoke.
Finally the temptation was too great for
him, and as a bit of metal placed too
close to a magnet will suddenly click
against it, he got within an irresistible
attraction and their lips met. Henry
drew back, abashed.

"And I wouldn't''a' had y' done it

girl, coloring. "D'ye think I want anybody to kiss me as feels thata-way?"
"Air y' goin' to' forgive me, Jenny?"
The word was spoken in a very noncommittal tone, but Henry did not co
understand it. He stood very near the
pouting lips that had tasted so sweet,
and a bit of 'recklessness came to him.
"Jenny," he 8t��id, "I reckon that if y'
air not goin'. to forgive me for takin''
one, I might as well have a dozen."
To this Jcnny-smade. no reply. She
looked out toward a barn that loomed
up on the crest of a distant hill and
"How much madder would y' be if I

Henry was beginning to discover that

not very severe. Jenny^s lips were still

he was thinking if one kiss htjd bees so

tlte, and tn others brick laid In herringbone fashion. Some excellent specimens,
of both coarse and fine mosaic work irrq
also visible. At one end of tho caldari-
um was found part of a fallen wall mails
of brick and flint, showing on the underside the plaster with which all the wall*
were covered, both within and without.
The fragment shows clearly the sldo nf
a window, which must have been square-
headed. In almost every room are visible
the pllae which carried the floors. A
number of bone pins, beads, fltyll,. etc., ,
were found, as well as porttonn of. col- '
ttimis of different sizes, parts of a basin :
which must have been eight feet or so
across, and a very good specimen of a
Roman altar, unfortunately not InscrllH-,..
and a handsome Doric capital. The efforts of the past year have also brought
to light a number of sites of small
houses. It Is hoped that thoso discoveries will bring'more contributions to the**'
cxcavition fund, which tuut'of late suffered from the deaths of aomo subs^r.u-
ers and other causes.
