St. Petersburg, Sept. 1.���������The  great buttle of Liaoyang, wliich began  early Tuesdivy morning was raged  wilh increased intensity, but up to the  hour no further official details beyond  two brief telegrams given out in the  afternoon, have been received" by the  war office.  .Every confidence is expressed in  Gen. Kuropatkin's ability to meet the  Japanese assault on the ground of his  own choosing, but the city is hungrily  awaiting f urthernews of the progress  of the.flght.  The Japanese forces engaged in this  battle can only be estimated here, but  they aie believed to number about  200,000 men. Gen. Kuropatkin is  known to have six army corps, besides  117 squadrons of cavalry, in which  great confidence is reposed, bringing  up the Russian total to about tho  same number that the Japanese have.  How the armies compare with  regard to artillery is not" definitely  known, though throughout the war  the Japanese have shown great  preference..- Reports from the 'front  credit the Japanese with having about  1,200 guns aud ma.iy mountain' -batteries, and it is known tliat. they  recently shipped 24 heavy guns to  Yirikow. - Four of these guns' already  have' been mentioned in these dispatches as being.in action.  Gen. -Kuropatkin, in addition to his  field batteries, has a number of very  heavy guns -emplaced at? important  positions^at~vLiaoyang, - where, the.  ���������rtussiat)S~havo been "strongly (fortifying for some time. The. Japanese  claim to have captured two > field-  batteries during the past two days.  Russian official accounts admit tbe  loss.of only six guns.  '  A Russian correspondent of the  Associated Press supplies the following :  "The historical moment has arrived,  and the'battle of Liaoyang is. in progress. - It was not 0 o'clock this n.orn  ing when the first gun wus fired, but  soon afterwaid hundreds of cannon  were' thundering along our southern  and eastern fronts. * ���������  "The centre of our positionjs located near the famous tower of Liaoyang,  alwut seven, miles- to'the southeast.  The fighting there was of the most  desperate character, but is now going  on nearer the flanks.  The hissing of shells is distinctly  audible, and from the city it is easy to  see the shells inn-sting. Heavy guns  were brought into action by both sides  today, and their dull roar was discern-  able above the sharper detonation of  field and mountain guns.  '.'The Russians are using big ordnance, which is in position in the inner  ring of the Liaoyang forts.  ���������"Tbe-noisy-Chinese population has  suddenly become quiet. The ^muin  street of Liaoyang, always the scene  of the busiest traffic and usually resounding with tHe sound of thousands  of shrill voices from sunrise lo sunset,  is no'w as silent as if it were night.  J'The inhabitants are watching the  distant battle from the housetops and  watch towers*or are wandering gloomily in the streets.  "We are asking ourselves if the tide  of battle is going to swamp the city,  what is to liecome of the houses and  other property? I am going to thp  southern front."  Labor Day.  The committees on the Labor Day  sports have' been working overtime  this week. They have had untold  troubles in arranging the programme.  In the first place the Nelson lacrosse  team decided:, that they would not  come after promising to do so, and the  managing committee have been busy  'ever since in getting something definite in the way of a lacrosse match for  Monday. Negotiations are now pending with ilie Vancouver team, champions of B. 0., and it will be known  tonight whether the Vancouver boys  will make the trip or not. Enderby  will send a football team to compete  for the Mat-tin. Challenge Cup, and  with a good programme of races and  other athletic sports and 'favorable  weather the Labor Day celebration  this year should be most successful.

Monday, Aug. 20th fire  broke out  in   the Prospector's  Exchange.    The  flames    first     made    their    appearance  from   thc  kitchen   and spread  rapidly to the main part of the hotel.  While the fire was in progress all the  residents   were   busy    carrying   out  furniture, most of which was saved.  Crawford's harness shop was doomed  next and burned rapidly.   From there  it  spead   to   Crawford's  blacksmith  shop, to his residence, still spreading  to a house owned by W. B. Johnson,  occupied   by    teamsters  as  sleeping  quarters.   Next came Wm.

Lucky Joe's  bucket  brigade   was    successful    in  saving Bi-antford & Co.'s store after a  hard fight.";  There wus but little insurance bn  any of the buildings, which makes  the loss a heavy one.  ��������� Jr. Jt.

TEN   KILLED  55 INJURED  Terrible Wreck on the Grand  Trunk Road Near Sherbrooke  ���������Result of Misinterpretation  of Orders.  Sherbrooke, Que., Aug. 31. ���������  Eleven persons killed and fifty-seven  injured, some of them fatally, is the  brief summary of a disastrous accident  which occurred this morning a mile  east of Richmond, on tbe Grand Trunk  Railway.

So far tis the latter sport is concerned there is little chance for  wasting ammunition at present as  very few birds are seen on the lakes  just now. Grouse arc more plentiful,  however, and will no doubt receivo it  fair share of attention. Many of the  ranchers and fanners are taking advantage of the law respecting trespassers on enclosed lands and the  ambitious nimrod may expect to be  confronted on every hand with printed  notices to this effect. Hunting or  shooting on these lands is forbidden  by British Columbia game laws. If he  is wise he will keep oif prohibited  land and take to the unenclosed wild  lands in search of the game he is  after. The following synopsis of tl e  game laws may prove of service.  It is lawful to kill grouse (any  variety), prairie chioken, ptarmigan,  fool hen, from Sept. 1st to Dec. 31st,  inclusive.  Wild duck of all kinds, bittern,  meadow lark, plover and Heron, Sept.  1st to February 28th.  Caribou, waptki, elk,' moose and  hare, Sept. 1st to Dec. 14th, inclusive.

"But the plea of imioconce, In tho  face of conviction, is one that has  no weight with tlio hard official  mind of it detective. Such! men are  rich in bruins, but poor enough iu  heart."  He spoke bitterly, and Nellie put  her small while hnnd over liis  nioulli.  "Hush'!" slie whispered.

'  many steps arc tliere  to your  door?"  Nellie laughed.  "You silly boy!" slie said merrily.  "I-can't .see iny father doing that.  He's much too cool. 1 don't think ho  could bo downright angry if he tried.  But ho could be terribly stern."  For a moment there was silence.  And then Ronald asked abruptly :  "What i.s your father. Nellie? Yon  have never told me his profession."  Nellie Arkwright hesitated.  "Bear "Ronald," she said at last,  "1 know you will think it strange,  but dad has forbidden mo to mention  the nature of liis profession to anyone. It i.s an honest one���������that I  may at least, tell you���������hut there are  reasons why he should, as far as  possible, hide his identit3- with tho  profession Iio has chosen. IVh'en you  call tc���������to ask liim for me, denr, I  expect lie will toll you all about it  himself. But I���������I mustn't, until he  bids mc, even to you!"  She looked introatingly into Ronald's handsome face. It seemed a.  strange thing to liave to say to one  who should havo had her every  thought. But ho understood and reassured her  in  an  instant.  "You    don't    mind, do you?"    sho  said.  "Not a bit."  He pressed her little ungloved hand  with tender warmth. The publicity  of a park sent admitted of no better  demonstration of hi.s feelings. Presently they rose and moved slowly  out of the park and in tne direction  of Nellie's home. Nearing it, Ronald's faco became imbued witli a sudden  resolve.  "Nellie," lie said, 1 shall linye to  speak to your father ere long. Why  not to-night?'"  Nellie started and flushed ns slie  heard tlie words.  "Just   as    you     will,, dear,"  murmured.      "Dad's sure to be in."  Turning into, a quiet side-street,  Nellie led liim to the door of her  father's liouse, and', in a few- moments later, tlieywere standing in a  -small, prettily-iuniislie'd room where  "Mr.  Arkwright sat.  "Daddy," said Nellie .shyly, "this  is Sir. Ronald Haldane, and lie lins  come to ask you a question. And���������  nnd if you say 'Yes* to .'him, dear  father,, it���������it. will make me very Unp  aid, and, when my father knows you  ont Nellie stood still.   Then sho lift-  vy-  She moved towards llic door, lier  lovely face pink with blushes. But  her father .stopped lier. There was  a curious look on his face as Iio eyed  tho young man before liim witli n  quick, comprehensive glance. Upon  "Ronald's face, too, tliere was an expression of puzzled bewilderment  tliat whs slowly resolving itself into  one of apprehension. But ere  He could voice his request  Mr.     "Richard       Arkwright turn  ed  to his daughter,  an'd  asked  coldly:  "Am I to understand tliat this  man has come to me, witli your sanction, to ask to give you���������tlio dearest treasure I have on earth���������to him.  ��������� to him?"-  A strange, frightened look came  into Nellie's eyes as she heard her  father's words. Something���������she know-  not what���������seemed suddenly to threaten her, and she glanced from one to  cd her skirt with one white hnnd,  and, with head erect nnd blazing  eyes, turned to go. Ronald sprang  to open the door, and she greeted  him witli a. radiant smile.  "Always, always!" sho whispered,  nnd swept out of the room.  Ronald closed the door after lior  and walked bnck to the centre of the  room.  "Now, tlien," said Richard Arkwright bluntly, "lot us make an end  of this business. You havo asked mo  for my daughter. I would rnthor  sco her dend than as the wife of a  convicted folon. Do you understand  me?"  Ronald bowed. Tlio liot blood was  surging to liis temples, but lie kept  himself  under  control.  "Quito!" Ko said coolly. "But I  shall not relinquish my pursuit oi this  object, Mr. Arkwright. Your daughter is of age and can act for herself,  and, if slie stands by you for a  while, I can wait. And I will wait  ���������Jive, ten, fifteen, twenty years, if  necessary���������but I shall not abandon  llic liopo'of my life!"  Tliere was ii bright light in liis  dark eyes ns tliey looked fearlessly,  into the face of the detective. For a  moment tho latter regarded liim. in  amazement.  - "By Heaven," h'o said at length',  "you have your share of effrontery,  my man! But you'll grow tired  .sooner than you anticipate; while, as  for my daughter, sho has been too  woll schooled in obedience to act  contrary to my commands."  Ronald smiled.  "You may liave never lieard of tlie  power of lovo," lie said coolly.  "Obedience is not one of the first  she j forces iir life. Some day you. may  realize this. .'And, in the meantime,  permit mo to wish you good ovening. '���������'���������  He bowed stillly, nnd going to the  door, lot himself out. Wlien he was  gone, Richard Arkwright sat down  again in tho chair from which lie had  risen.  "I could almost have believed him,  too!" lie said to himself. "The fellow's eyes were ns clear and steady,  ns my own. And when ho dared mc,  lie seemed a bigger man than I. By  Jove! I almost admired him for  what I termed his effrontery! I wonder . But that's-absurd I    A British  jury is not a pack of idiots, and tho  evidence  Was    incontestable. Tlie  man's guilty, right enough', nail Nellie must forget him as soon as she  can.'"  So lie 'dismissed tlie subject from  liis mind. Ilut, though the days  sped into weeks, and the weeks into  month's, Nellie did not lyrget the  man to whom she liad given all the!  wealth of lovo iu lior heart. j  Her  face     grew    pale,    her    eyes ;  with' the" quiet demeanour of self-  respecting manhood.  All too lato ho learnt to what  depths the human heart will sink to  grasp the empty bubble wo cull revenge.  It wns Ronald's duty to keep tlie  cheque-book of the firm under lock  and key. One day���������a day lie would  never forgot���������he was summoned into  the private ollice of his employers  to find them closoted wilh a man he  did not then know, but whom he  knew now  ns  Detective   Arkwright.  To his utter amazement, n cheque  wns held before his oyos nnd lie was  asked if ho could account for it. It  was filled in in his own handwriting,  the signature was a forgery, nnd the  cheque had been torn from the book  in his charge.  Ilia own handwriting! Yes, it  was his. and yot not hi.s, for he hnd  (Hied in no such cheque.  ITo could only look from one to the  other in helpless amazement. Tlio  j power of speech seemed momentarily  ' to liave forsaken him. And then his  books wore placed before liim, nnd,  to his astonishment, he found falsifications of which he liad been wholly  unconscious  tho  day  before.  Ho had left the office earlier tlian  some of the rest the previous evening, but tliis thought never even occurred to him.

Littlo less interesting than tlicsc  old engines are ono or two old railway-carriages that are* still extant.  When railways were first opened to  passengers, some of the conches wero  stage coaches mounted on flanged  wheels. Just as tlie first motor cars  were built on" the lines of horsed  vehicles. The lines of tlio old- stage  conchi can bo traced in many up-lo-  dnte railway carriages. Railway men  always" s;5cak of "coaches" to this  day, and tlie term "booUing office"  survives from tho time when travellers had to book tlieir places in the  Kolipso or tho Highflier several days  beforehand.  Tho first railway carriages built as  sucli were merely open trucks, without eny covering, and passengers arrived at.their destination black as  swoops witli the smoke from th'o engine and exhausted by holding their  hats on.  ' The first covered railway carriage  had tiip door at tho end, and strongly . resembled a bathing machine. It  was called the Experiment.' It is  said tliat sister carriages to tlio . Experiment are still in use on a certain  railway which shall be nameless.  That is probably a libel, howover.  To "conclude-' with a forecast.

'BHOKF  M.  Sold  Her   Secret     System  to  Blanc  for 70,000 "Francs  Down. '*.'?���������  It was a favorite saying of M.  Blanc, founder of thc gaming-tables  at Monte Carlo, that "Rod wins  sometimes, Black often, but Blank  always"; and iu the long run this  must inevitably bo so, considering  that at the roulotto tabic the bank  has an advantage of S_ por cent.,  and at tho rouge-et-noir tablo a i  per cent, advantage over th* player.  And thus it happens that the "human player is no match for the machine," and that tho bank must always "rako in" more gold than it  pays out.  Occasionally, thanks to luck, a  player brings nwny from Monte  Carlo considerably more money than  ho took tliere, as in the. recent case  ot Lord Villiors, who is credited  with having won $150,000. It will  bo remembered that "Lucky-cliance  Wells," whose name was once on tho  lips of thousands as that of the man  "who broke the bank at Monte Carlo," actually won 5250,000 in two  days, but by sticking too long to his  system, the D'Alcmbert, ho lost it  all again, and more.  A Russian Count once carried away  $70,000--as tho result of a single  night's play in tho semi-private  gaming-room, where the stakes are  heavier than at the ordinary tables;  ,, . a North.of England shipowner won  $30,000 in a couple of hours, and  'wisely took an early train home with  his spoil; and a Yorkshire colliery  owner left Monte Carlo, lifter a three  week's stay, ������75,000 richer than  when he went thore. But in the  same month the wifo of an English  peer lost ������S0,000 in one night and  9100,000  ON TIIE NIGHT FOLLOWING.  And so the game of sec-saw goes  on year nfter year; but whether it  wins or loses the bank can afford to  smile, for it knows well that it will  Inevitably wind up tho year with  something* liko S3,000,000 to its  credit. During one recent year the  bank found itself a loser of nearly  1,000,000 francs at the end of 'ten  months' play; but the tide, as'it always does, turned in timo to save  it,- and during the next and last two  months of the financial year it actually ma'de a profit of 25,000,000  francs, leaving it nearly 55,000,000  to the good on thc year's play after  all.  As for systems, Herr Silborcr, who  has studied tlio matter more thoroughly, perhaps, than any man living, says "they aro all worthless  save one, and that one is the bank  itself, with its margin of certain  profit."  . ,\ "There never lias been a system,"  tho director said "to an interviewer  not long.ago, "which has given us a  moment's anxiety���������save one," and  that- one system was the accidental  discovery of an old lady who had frequented the tables for years. She  had noticed tliat at roulette certain  numbers always followed each other.  Thus, if the eroupier spun with" tho  number nine opposite him, twenty-  six was certain to be tlie next;- and  if zero wns in tlie same position  th'irtv-two  WOULD SURELY FOLLOW.  After checking her observations day  after day she began to play, and won  ���������won in all " some 300,000 francs,  breaking the bank three tinics. Tlie  ollicials wore in despair; M. Blanc  was summoned from Paris, and, as a  desperate resource, lie persuaded thc  old lady lo part with her secrot for  70,000  francs down.  The secret was absurdly simple after all. The roulette wheel had become warped by the heat aud was  not quite round; so that when spun  from a certain point it invariably  stuck at a certain other point.  Another gambler who proved a terrible tliorn  in  tho side of the   bank  was a Mr. J aggers, a Yorkshire   mechanic,   who,  with  the assistance    of  half-a-dozen     clerks,    -kept     a  closo  watch.over thc roulette wheels at the'  various  tables  and  discovered '   that  - each     one"    had  some  small   defect,  whicli resulted"   in one number winning moro frequently than  any other.  These    winning    numbers he backed  with so much    success     that at ono  time ho    had     won $000,000.      Tho  bank, however,, discovered liis secret,  ������������������iiew--whcels=werc-sitbstitutod-for���������thc~  old ones, and Mr. Jaggers began   to  lose 'heavily until,   recognising    tliat  the "gamo was up," Iio ceased playing left Monte Carlo witli ������400,000.'

Short, Sharp Words  of Command.  Spoken in the English Tongue,  Cleave the Dark Air.  All day long thoro had boen signs  of unusual stir and bustle in the Japanese capital, writes A. G. Hales in  Loudon Daily News. The quiet of  the place was shaken, womon were  going to and fro with anxious faces,  as" though an event of importance  woro about to occur. Now and again  littlo groups of vory old and very  young females might bo seen wending  thoir way towards the temples to  make offerings to tho gods for the  ���������safety of soldiers who might soon  be called upon to foel tlio shock of  battle. Tliey were very much in car-  nest, those daughter's and mothers of  the soldiery of Japan, and ono could  plainly see that they were beginning  to realizo that there are other things  besides mere glory attached to the  chariot wheels of war. They ��������� made  their olTorings meekly, with bared  feet, folded hands and downcast eyes,  for to them at that moment the  dumb gods were very real, Hut not  more real  than their sorrow.  As thc ' day wore away and the  dusk of ovening settled upon the city,  tho pulse.of tho people began to throb  moro forcefully, and even a foreigner  and a stranger could toll tliat an unusual event was near its happening. I  sent my interpreter to find out what  was afoot, for it is not safe for any  European to appear too curious wlien  tho war fever is running high in tho  blood of lho populace. Ho came back  at last with' the news tliat at an  early hour in the night the Imporial  Guards of Tokio were to leave tho  city for- tho seat of war. I had noticed during tlie last few days that  Japanese war office had been intensely  busy, and this was the more noticeable on account of tho chock tliat had  taken place in affairs some time earlier. It looked to mo as. if a new  plan of campaign had been struck  out, and was to bo pushed along with  intense vigor and activity. Artillery  had moved out suddenly and sharply;  this I know; no cavalry, but a goodly  body of infantry, and now the Imporial Guard was under orders to go  forth and show wliat they could do.  Of all the troops known in the metropolis nerhans^-ripno aro-so^popular^  with     tlie     people'   as    the Imperial  Guard,  and I was rto have an, opportunity of    wnlcliing a demonstration  of a naturo worth chronicling.  THE TRAMP.'OF ARMED MEN.  It  was  ahout 8  o'clock  wlien     the  great  sight  began.     The  night ,   had  come on with sudden, darkness, not a  star lit tho black mantle that     overhung tlio  world,  there  was no  moon  and  the  shadows  cast  by the  dwellings  in  the unlit  street's  were scarce  darker than tho surrounding    void. A  magnetic  calm    had  fallen  upon  the  capital as  if tlio people  were gathering themselves together "for one great  patriotic effort.    Suddenly the   scene  was changed. -' ���������   The  tramp of armed  men rang out upon the.night. . Short,  Sharp     words     of  command,'  spoken,  strangely    enough,     in    the   Enirlish  tongue, cut -.through tlie clank-of falling footsteps;. and then wc ijr.cw that  tlio Imperial  Guard  was  on  its  way  to the forefront    of.'.the war.        Thon  the peoplo poured out of their homes  as-a    i'ider,    in the full of its flood,  pours  ovei- its-banks. -     Thoy     came  in rivulets; they came in torrents; and  froni  every'",throat. won't, up a   shout  of  pride,   a  wild,  shrill ' cry . of     welcome' 'hnd.-'farewell,  nnd. through     the  ever-varying ���������   cadences  of the  human  voices came the 'rover-berating tramp   of  warriors'' feet;  and still the  shadows  lay upon  the land.  It. was weird, that inarch in the  night, with tlie swelling cheers waking the echoes, the clunk of ririus. the  Khiillliiig fool falls of die populace ant!  ever niul1 uiioii-a bugle's note. Then  once tic,n"ii the Mo'iie was changed,  ten thousand lanterns Unshed into  view, lanterns carried on bamboos b.v  ini'ii und lads and boys.

A SWIFT RUSH OF VOICES. .  Now tlio dense . mass grows denser.  From every alley way and lane, from  every street and high road, tho peoplo poured, with lanterns ,lield aloft,  a dozen feet abovo their heads. Then  someone' broke into song. A swift  rush of voices followed, as wave follows wavo upon the coast. Women  and children sang, men'danced and  tossed tlieir lanterns high, boys clapped thoir hands and sent shrill treble  sounds far out into tho night. And-  yet above it all, abovo tho babel of  sound, abovo the cheering and tho  song, came tho stern, strong tread of  -oiiv oj. "guiuojuiu ������i.ro.ii oiix. uotn au,}. ern means  tory or to death.

Steadily they moved amidst that  storming, swaying, fire-girt multitude  until they readied the railway station. Then, as it* each soldier were  part and parcel of a machine, they  passed along tho platform into their  places. There was no hurry, no confusion, no shouting or storming, just  a low word of command at intervals,  and prompt, unquestioning obedience,  and overy seat was filled by the man  appointed to fill it; and in a moment,  without a hitch , or a blunder, the  troops tliat wore the pride of tho  capital -flashed out into the night  to cross steel with the grey-clad man  from tlie far-off north, whilst the  women wore left behind to weep and  to work, to watch and-to wait, as  women must when war is loose in tho  land.  the  all  Japanese will be able to remove  traces of his Mongolian origin.

A deformed noso would bo decreased  where it was too full, or increased  where it was defective, until it reached tho shape required."  An Amrlo-Indian lady suffered groat  social inconvenience by possessing a  noso flattened. out towards'the point.  By means of a slight operation her  noso was transformed into quite, a  passable one. bv the simple process  of "building up."

An interesting account is given in  Tho Novoe Vremya, of St. Petersburg, of the methods adopted by the  Russians for keeping watch over the  Manchurian Railway. Tho writer  says the two attempts made to destroy the Manchurian Railway, the  first by two disguised Japanese officers and the second by five Chinamen,  who placed dynamite- cartridges on  tho permanent way just beforo the  passage of a train, show that this is  a danger which we must rockon with  seriously. Lot us see how tlie work  of guarding the lino is carried out.  This 'service requires-a.special force  of frontier guards, consisting of 55  squadrons of cavalry, 51 companies  of infantry and six batteries oi artillery���������altogether 25,000 men, spread  over a stretch of country about 1250  miles in length. This number, seemingly, is ' inadequate,' but although  tlio troops never know what point is  threatened with attack, the bandits  are equally at a disadvantage, as they  may cSIhe into collission with a de-  tacKinent of the railway guards, who  are constantly patrolling, not only tho entire length of tlie railway-  line, but also the country for thirty  ~miles-td-thb"'n^  worlv of patrolling, is facilitated ..by  the fact that the Chinese have a horror of the darkness, shutting themselves up in their houses at sunset  and not emerging again until it is  broad daylight, For the. Chunchuses,  however, not only does night present  no terrors, but they prefer to carry  out their misdeeds  UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS.  There  is,   consequently,  no - doubt     a  man captured  in  the  night  is   either  a Chunchusa ; or a Japanese in-.disguise.     By day it  is difficult  to   distinguish*   peaceful     Chinamen       from  Chunchuses,  the  only  difference being  in J the anus  carried     by" the latter.  After    an. attempt    on the line     the  bandits make off nt full gallop.in the  direction  of tho villages.     They   hide  their arms,  and then. with, the most  natural air in tlie world confront tlie  soldiers,   mingle in - thc crowd of villagers, who do not dare to  denounce  them    for- fear  :oi" subsequent vengeance.       Besides    hunting  Chunchuses,  the frontier guard  lias  to  defend  the  railway   from   possible     attacks      by  Chinese regular  troops:  Bridges,  tunnels and all the principal points   are  defended by strong detachments   ,with  artillery.     Chinese soldiers and Chunchuses are dangerous in the sense that  tliey compel us to  scatter.     The soldiers  arc    not  braver  than  in 1900,  but  it is diflleult to got out of    th'o  way of a dynamite cartridge,    which  is  always    easy  to   lay  on  the -rails;  wlien a  train  is passing.       What     is  specially important is to  prevent the  execution  of an  outrage which' Would  stop railway     communication  for     a  prolonged period.     In this connection  we can be sure that, .stimulated     by   cn'-  the indefatigable activity    of its chief  General     Tchitchago.'T,     the   ��������� frontier  guard  will bo fully caual to the tasls  before  it.  turning up at thepoint, it can be  reduced to thc straight. To produce  this result the tip will"not, as you  may suppose, be lowered by an operation. But the remainder of the nose  will be built up .to the same altitude  as tho tip*, by the samo injection. Tn  fact, thc plastic surgeon can add any  amount- of nose that mav bo required  within reason, and tho only inconvenience to the patient will be tho incision.  But tlio plastic surgeon is not only  concerned with actual defects in tho  nose. He claims to qo ablo to  produce a really good nose���������a r,aro  possession���������out  of  a merely  ordinary  OBP.  "The character of the face," ho  says, "is weakened in intensity .by  forming too great or too small an  angle with the general, profile.

Tlio boo looked so very much  like tlie one that had stung her'little inquisitive noso tho day she had  poked it into his hiding-place in a  groat scarlet tulip that she considered  him far worse than no guest at all,  and was glad when he left tho garden.  . "O dear," said Kittie, who was  sitting on the door-step, with a saucer of ripo huckleberries, a slice of  broad and a cup of water beside her,  "I. do wish somebody would happen  in! Thero isn't a bit of fun in having a tea-party all alone. Why!  What's that?"  Kittio's bluo eyes got rounder and  rounder, and for a moment sho was  almost ns frightened as sho was surprised, for - such a strange visitor  was coming in at tlie gate���������and walking with slow, careful stops straight  toward Kittio's saucer of huclileber-  ries.  'The visitor slopped about three  feet away from Kiltie, and turning  his black head from sido to side,  looked at her as if hc were wondering  if it would bo safe to go any closer.  Kittio dropfied a largo black berry  on tho stono near her feet. Tlie visi-  toe, still keeping a watchful eye on  Kittle, hopped sideways, stretched his  neck as far as-possible, made a sudden dive for the berry and darted  back to" tho gate.  , "I think you must be somebody's  tamo crow," said Kitty, holding out  another berry. "It was very nice  of j'ou to como to my party. Come,  this berry is for you. Don't bo  afraid."  Tho visitor, still a littlo doubtful  about his new friend, liopped slowly  closer, snatched the berry from the  little girl's fingers, and then jumped  backward out of Kittio's reach. Kit-  tie wanted to laugh because ho was  sucli a funny visitor and had sucli a  queer tea-party manners; but she was  a polite littlo maid and did not want  to hurt his feelings. Ho looked so  wise that she was sure ho would not  liko to bo laughed at.  Presently the ciow made- up liis  mind tliat Kittie was a safe person  to .visit, and ho was. soon standing  quietly on the step beside Iter, eating  berries out of ths little box cover  that Kittio gavo him for a plate. He  liked tho bread and hutter, too, and  Kittio" gavo him tho larger half. Whon  that was' gone, he looked longingly  at tlio cup of water. There was only  one cup, and Kittie did not quite see  how she was to divide, tho water into  equal portions; but tho crow was not  at all troubled about tho matter.  Without waiting to bo invited, ho  hopped to tho cup, drank all ho wanted, and then��������� Oh, I'm suro you cannot guoss what ho did then.

A  Towns  and     Villages  in  England  Whi;h Enjoy Curious  Rights.  In old days, and indeed up to less  than a century ago, there were hundreds of towns and villages in these  islands which enjoyed special privileges of one kind or another, says London Tit-Bits. Old manorial courts  held jurisdiction iu certain areas, and  tlieir rights to punish, reward, levy  rates, and make local appoiutments  were recognised as thoroughly as uro  tq-dtay those of tho local assizes or  tlio  County Councils.  Tliose courts wero known ns courts  leet,     courts    customary,  and  courts  INDIA'S SOIL IS RICH.  Rainfalls       Immediately     Reverso  Famine Conditions.  Tho fact that tli* Government and  tho benevolent people of Europe ariid  America have twice within thp lapt  ten years been compelled to laterv4a������  to save tho poop'o of the Indian oni*  pire from starvation has created on  impression that they are in the lowest depths of distress and aro suffering from many privations. This is  unnatural, and might under ordinary  circumstances be accepted as conclusive proof of the growing poverty of  the country and the Inability of the  people to preserve their own lives.  Sucli a conclusion, however, is very  far from the fact, and every visitor  to India from foreign lands has a  surprise awaiting him coirc������rniiii* its  condition nnd progress. When three-  fifths of a population of 300,006,000  buron        In     many   places   the   sites   iiaVo all their eggs in one basket 'and  whero tliose ancient tribunals sat are  ���������till pointed out. Near Leominster,  for instance, wliich is a Herefordshire  market town, a magnificent old elm  Boos by the name of the Court Loot  Elm. Tho court once sat beneath ils  Bha'do.  At Afottisfont, near Romscy, court  baron still survives, but its powers  are limited.  The pretty village of Beaconsfield,  in Buckinghamshire. occasionally  holds n court loot, tho members of  Which are selected from tho freeholders of the place. This coiirt assembles for tho purpose of choosing  tho parish constable, town crier, ale-  taster, and pay warden. The court  has to bo convened by the lord of the  manor, and meets very infrequently.  There     was    a    meeting  about  threo  depend entirely upon their little farms  for sustenance, and when their crops  aro entirely dependent upon the rains,  and wlien for a succession of years  the rains are not sufficient, thero  must be failures of harvest nnd a  vast amount of suffering is inevitable.  But the recuperative power of the empire is astonishing.  Although a famine may CJitend iti  total length' and breadth one season,  and require all the resources of the  Government to prevent the entire  population trom perishing, a normal  rainfall will restore almost immediate  prosperity because the soil is so rich,  tlie sun is so hot, an'd vegetation  grows so rapidly that sometimes three  and' even four crops aro produced  from tlio same soil in a single year.  All tho  people want in  time of fam-  yoars ago, but before that none since I jno js sufficient seed to  replant tlieir  1889.  Howevor, if theso manorial courts  have for th'o most part disappeared,  it is still possiblo to find a goodly  liurnbcr of towns of villavcs which  enjoy peculiar rights of  ONE K1NIJ OR ANOTHER.  When, some years ago, an Act of  Parliament robbed the Cinque Ports  of most of thoir ancient privileges,  Brigh'tlingsoa, a Cinque Port "limb"  or "appanage," was in some way  overlooked. Consequently its inhabitants aro still exempt from serving  on juries, they cannot bo taken by  tho press-gang, and the town can  still appoint its own ale-taster.  It is at Brightlingsea that the ceremony of electing the mayor takes  place in tho belfry of tho parish  church, and thoro is an ancient statute still unrepealed to the effect that  tho inhabitants have the privilege of  wrecking the liouso of any freeman  who is foolish enough to refuse the  honor of election to the town's chief  civic dignity.  In at least one manor���������tliat of the  Earl of C'arm,arvon���������iho inhabitants  may cheerfully disregard tho enactments of the Ground Game Act passed some twenty years ago. Tlie ancient right of free chase and warren  ovcr freehold land is still in force  tliere. Indeed, it was actually- exercised, a vcry fow years ago, and a  private Bill was brought into Parliament designed to 'do away with it.  Tho writer believes, however, that the  Bill failed to  become law.  Tliere was a time when the peoplo  of Andover, in Hampshire, wero sad  poachers. Th'oy used to raid the  Hurstbourno Woods for deer. Eventually tlie then Lord Portsmouth found  it best to buy them oil by promising  lhem a buck for each of thoir feasts.  Tho custom fell into disuse a good  many years ago, but has recently been  reviled by  THE MAYOR OF ANDOVER.  The freedom of the City of London  carries with it���������nominally at any rate  ���������tho right lo keep pigs in thc parish  of St. James, Piccadilly. But oven  were anyone disposed to avail himself of this liberty, and tho sanitary  autlioritios failed to object, land in  that part of London is somewhat too  costly for profitable pig-farming.  Much more sensible is the "common  field" system enjoyed by the people  of Knockhoit, Kent, and at one or  two other places. A "common field"  must not bo confounded with a "common." Tt is a field belonging to a  number of separate owners, and is  divided iuto long, narrow strips, each  about 10 "yards wide. Certain rules  regulate ils management. The whole  jfigldiJs^put^iindei-^onoicrop.^to^-^the.  cultivation of which its owners contribute equally. They then share  th'o proceeds of tlio crop, and, after  tlio harvest is in, each and all of  tHom     enjoy    the   "right  of shack" ���������  farms  and  food enough  to last  them  UNTIL A CROP IS RIPE.  Tlie fact that famine exists in ono  part of the country, it must also be  considered, is no evidence that tho  remainder of tlio empire is not  abounding in prosperity, and every  table of statistics dealing with tlie  material conditions of the country  show that famine and plague liavo in  no manner impeded tlieir progress. On  the other hand they demonstrate the  exister.ee of an increased power of  endurance and rapid recuperation,  wliich, compared with tho past, affords ground for hopo and confidence  of an even more rapid a"d\ance in  th'o  future.  Comparing tlie material condition  of India to-day with what it was tcu  years ago, we find that tho area of  soil under cultivation has increased  from 221,000,000 to 220,000,000  acres. What wo call internal receipts  havo increased. 17 per cent, during  the last ten years; sea borne foreign  commerce has risen in value from  ������130,500,000 to ������16:1,750,000; the  coasting trace has risen from ������48.-  500,000' to ������63,000,000, and the foreign trade by land from ������5,500,000  to ������9,000,000.  Similar signs of progress and prosperity are to bo found in the development of organized manufacture, in  tho increased investment of capital  in commerce and industry, in dividends paid by various enterprises, in  the extended use of railways, the -,  postoffice and tho telegraph. Tho  number of operatives in cotton mills  lias increased during thc last ten  years from 118,000 to 17-i,000, in  jute mills from 05,000 to 114,000.  in coal and other mines from 35.000,  to 95,000. and in miscellaneous industries from 184,000 to 500.000.  The railway employes have increased  from 248,000 to  357,000.

The   Toronto-.Weekly   Sun is after  those   members   of   parliament  who  managed   to   be   elected,   by making  promises   only   to   break  lhem after  attaining the object of their ambition.  Tlie   newspaper   in question is "Independent," .but ��������������������������� opposed   on ��������� general'  principles to representatives who betrayed   their   trust.,   It is certainly a  remarkable.: thing that nearly all the  : so-called Liberal members who preached '-purity, economy and the rights of  provinces   and   ������ communities,"   have  ruthlessly   strangled    every    maxim  solemnly .enunciated by them.in various constituencies.     They believed in  '���������purity,"   but  readily     cheered    Sir  "Richard  Curt Wright,'When  that "Minister boldly defended the Government  for appointing one Jackson  to'a high  public position in Leeds, England.    "1  take all  the responsibility "  declared  ��������� Sir   Kichard,   although Jackson  had  been     denounced   by   the    presiding  judge as an arrant rascal:   although  he had prompted witnesses to  perjure  themselves in order to unseat a member of the local Legislature,  and   was  so besmirched that he could  not   remain   in   Canada!   These  "so-called  Liberals"   were loudest in  their  denunciation    of  political   corruption,  yet, when an official was found guilty  of ballot box stuffing in "Montreal  and  sent to prison,   they forthwith  PARDONED   AND   LIBERATED   HIM!  Tlien again, no class denounced  the  annual   public expenditure   by   Con-  .-ervntives with greater  fervour  than  they.     '��������� This ruinous   extravagance  must be put an end to," and the  then  outlay of S'JS.OOO.COO "must be reduced  "by at k-a.-t ������3.000,000:" whereas,   these  very men at the session of parliament  recently closed voted away SSO.OOO.OOO  of   national   taxes   to     be   expended  during the urn-rent year!   The aim  is  to buy up constituencies, appealing to  the     cupidity     of   communities   and  purchasing   voters   with   tlieir    own  monoy !   No wonder British Columbia  is   denied  better   terms: the electors  must be  taught   what"- subject inn  to  Government tyranny means.    Not one  member from British Columbia raised  his voice for what would  be  just  and  patriotic  in     connection     with   this  important issue.     All, however, voted  as   slaves   of   corporations,    cringing  beneath the party lash  and   violating  every   pledge previously  made.    The  Toronto Sun says:  " A number of members of the  House of Commons, on both sides,  representing rural constituencies,  have acted during their parliamentary  term as if their service was due to  corporations rather than to the people  who placed tliem in office. II is most  desirable that all those who have  taken such a course should, irrespective of their party connections, be  removed from their present positions,  and thc time to set about the business  of removal is now.  " REMOVE THEM!" should indeed  lie  the  watchword   throughout    the  country, if the sovereign people desire  to   safeguard     their    own   interests,  maintain self-respect and assert their  independence.   The member for Yule-  Cariboo, now a candidate for ICootcnay, has beenas great a  sinner in this  resjiect, as any of tho    other recalcitrants.   The "Liberal" promise to  " refiirm the Senate " lias been kept���������  and in  what   way?   By  filling that  chamber   with   men   who  have been  rejected by their constituents;   worse  than that, ly utilising the Senate to  strangle   legislation     passed   by   the  Commons!     Witness  the Alien  Restriction Bill,  pompously introduced  by Sir William Mulock, delayed' week  after   week,  passed   dining   the   last  days of the: session,  anil sent  to the  Senate,   too  lute  for   discussion,   but  soon enough to be slaughtered  there!  To be sure   the   bill   Was   practically  useless, for it only ptovided legislation  against aliens coming  over from   tlie  United States.    Still, the trickery and  chicanery of the Government was none  tho  less   treacherous   to   those   who  looked  for   'honest' dealing.   'Again,  over   thirty  members  of  Parliament  have been appointed to the bench and  other offices of emolument,   although  the Liberal platform  was Unit  it "is  subversive   of  the principles  of constitutional government,",  that inem-  beis   should,   after   being elected   to  represent a constituency, after recording votes precisely as dictated  by the  Government,' be   relieved   of   all   responsibility and rewarded for betraying the electors.     All along the line is  traceable   corrupt motives   upon  the  part of these members and  ministers  of thc-Crown.    .The  aim   now   is,   to  induce thirty candidates to  come out  and nullify   results,   by  taking   away  sufficient votes to allow   the Liberal  candidate   to^li������    elected    over ��������� thp-  rogtilar opposition  nominee.   Tliis is  to be   done,   whore  possible,   particularly where  the sitting  member  lias  been   the   slave   of   corporations  and  false to thc wishes and demands of the  constituency which lieinisrepi-csonted.  It remains to  be seen   whether such  sulitei-f.irge  will  mislead any  intelligent body of voters.  who know Mr. Galliher, know how far  ho will go to win an election; those  who know Mr. Mackintosh know him  to be above any subterpuge or decep-  ion so far as either capital or labor  is concerned. He has never swerved  in his allegiance! to tho people of British Columbia and even from a selfish  iur self-interested standpoint, woulil  not be likely to do so. He has had  reverses while struggling to maintain  the reputation of this Province; he has  the courage of his convictions, antl  whensoever sacrifices hud to be made,  he made them to assist those who  were wot king with him to restore  confidence in the west.  He did the same in  the  Northwest  Territories, working indefatigubly,   to  inuko    that    great   country   known.  There were those who spoke of him  then us optimistic, ns extravagant in  his statements.     It   is   a   mutter  of  history.   What  do   we   see   to-day ?  Every  hope he indulged  in, realised  and a rapidly  increasing population  testifying to his far-sighted efforts to  bring about progress untl restore con-  lidence.     He   was   no   office   seeker.  Just so soon as his work wus done, he  resigned the high and lucrative position.of Lieutenant-Governor and came  to British Columbia.    He accepted the  fortunes of war like a philosopher; hut-  it cun   never be suid that he utilised  labour to  advance   his interests.    On  the contrary,   when   that  statement  was made on a public platform, Mr.  Mackintosh culled  a  halt, demanded  proof,  and  estublishcl -beyond question the fact that his actions hud been  dictated by the best  of motives, and  Ihe   man   who   brought   the   charge  apologised   for his   statement.     The  Conservative   candidate, so  far as we  know, never played  fast and loose; lie  admitted that Capital had rights, unquestionable  rights,  but that Labour  also must be  considered und its privileges   respected.     Thut   is his record  for twenty-live years, and surely those  wiio have watched bis career in public  positions should be able to fairly estimate  the position.     He  never advocated ..monopoly, ns   existing  at   the  present time. - On the other hand, let  fair-minded'men. glance over the votes  and proceedings of . parliament from  1001   to   1901  and there find in black  and   white   a record of Mr. Gnlliher's  parliamentary   career. .

As tlioy. glided up tho shaft Arthur  (Lansing, one ot the manuscript readers, learned from the elevator feoy tho  particulars of the mishap. The girl  compositors had let the bird out of its  cage for a few minutes, and tome ono  just entering had unwittingly opened  the transom, when out popped Yellow-  top.  Lansing had an opera glass in his  > pocket. (He always took a morning  peep at the birds in tho park as ho  came through). When clear of tho  group of chattering girls who surrounded the elevator shaft he pulled  out his glass and swept the sky-lighted  roof of the building with it. No canary  was to be eeen, but something else attracted the manuscript reader's attention. It was a slight streak ot milky  discoloration on tho lliinga of tbe wido  wheel over which the elevator cablo  ���������vas wound at the top of the shaft.  ���������Lansing's mechanical training drew  liis eye to that barely petceptiblo streak  In an instant and told him what it  meant. It was a flaw in the ilange. An>  unusual pressure brought to bear  against that thin rim of isteel might  cause it to break and let���������no one might  eay how many coils of cable slip off  tho wheel. Then the cage would drop  with frightful suddenness, and when it  (brought up again with a jerk the cabin  would be likely to break���������and Little  "Vignettes might be in the elevator!  /. Arthur Lansing put the glass back  , into his pocket, and as tho elevator just  then appeared again at tho sixth floor,  descended to the* business office aiul  told In a few straight words what Jib  had discovered. The business manager looked at him superciliously whilo  li������ was speaking.  "I will consider the matter," said th?  business~manager, resuming his letters.  Lansing was so indignant that ho  would bave left the employ of the Aeou  Magazine at once if it had not beeu for  Little Vignettes.  Everybody on the upper floor epoko  cf Miss Pennrhyu as "Little Vignettes."  That was because she designed all tho  vignettes and tail-pieces and borders  end initial letters used in the Aeun  (Magazine.  Arthur Lan6ing could not help falHns  tn love with her, but he did not venture  to aspire to her hand.  Every morning for three weeks hn  examined the defective flange with bis  glass.     The   Blight,    innoceut-looking  ��������� granular btreak was still there. No one  came to inspect it. No one know of it  save himself and the business manager.  At last the expected happened. They  nvere going down the shaft at noon-  lust they three. Little Viguettes, Lansing and the elevator boy. One coil of  the steel cable bad slipped over against  the weak flange on the .up trip and  Another had piled on top of it. When  the pressure was removed the cracked  flange fell off. Tbe outer coil slipped  from the wheel rim and dragged  another with it. Tho elevator dropped  like a stone..  In the twinkling of an eye Arthur  Lansing had Little Vignettes in his  powerful grasp and'was holding her at  arms' length above him. Thc car fell  ten feet and stopped with a frightful  Jerk. Down in a heap on the floor  '���������' plunged"-Lanslng and the elevator boy  ' and Little Vignettes, and Little Vignettes was well on top. She was  Btunred, but came to sooner than Lans-  Ing with his broken and dislocated  (knee. The elevator boy got to hie feet  end stopped the car at the third land'  ing.  There Lansing and Aliss Pennrhyn  mere taken out.  \\ * ������v- * '   * ���������  '��������� Little Vignettes illustrates Arthur  ���������Lansing's stories now, and their mil-  'tual workshop is a pretty little homo  fn the suburbs. The stories and lllus-  trations are in great favor with publishers, and even the business manager  Of the Aeon Magazine has signed some  extraordinary checks in payment thero-  Of���������checks that made him screw up hi3  fmooth-Bhaven face like a man in slian?

"Sho ought to be home by this  time of niglifc," Hoger added, after  another pause.  "The time is no matter; Mr. Ingleby always sees her home after dark"  snid Mr.   Plummor.

"J'nin't what I ever giv ray  mind to. So soon as I got a man's  wage I went to church long with  Sfeary Ann. never thought noth'  about it. Aye, I mind the day:  the apples was in bloom and wold  1'arson Stone's cow died. Wold chap  hep us waiting. 'Twas a pretty nigh  loo late when n come." The second  carter sighed, whether because tho  clergyman did not come too Into ho  did   not  sny.  The spectacle they were gathered  together to wonder at and discuss  was, as Mi's. Plummor was then observing to her husband, "enough to  make the. very eat talk." Though the  sun  had  sunk  some     degrees     below  of grasshoppers, tlio drowsy drone  of chaffers, and the low gurgle of  ���������hidden waters, listening and yet not  heeding., her heart too crushed. Tho  dusk nir was warm and dewlcss, as  it rarely is in England,' the trees  stood .motionless,', the foliage like  catved bronze, the leaves were turning early this year, but in sheltered  woods  still  wore  their summer'hues;'  soft  drawn by the overwhelming attraction should leave its ordered path  and bo swept nwny into tho flaming  train, thus marring the accurate  poise of some vast and complex system. Some astronomers thought  this possible, sho had heard at the  Inglebys  that nftoaRoon.  "Thou dost preserve thc stars from  wrong," she thought. Sho no longer  wore Philip's opal ring, alio had  written to offer him his release, telling him that his love was a brother's, that sho could not in conscience  hold him to his forced hasty promise  unci thut tlieir marriage would bo  agninst tlio spirit of their father's  dying request. Slie wrolo this after tho meeting in tlie picturo gallery, since when sho had not seen  Claude Medway.  She understood it till, the sudden  d'isappeacunco aftor tho sudden revolution, and though her heart ached  nnd her life crept as wearily ns a  wounded thing, sho knew it was  right. Even without her wurniiiR  that afternoon in tho North Gallery  how should he stoop to sucli as she?  He had conquered his feelings, she  honored  liim  for doing  so.  In these days Jessie no longer  wished to leavo Redwoods, she had  no motivo at heart.for anything;.  Her books interested her no more,  lier brushes woro put aside, her needle idle; sho spoke little and ate less,  morning, noon, and night wero the  same to lier, tlio mainspring of her  lifo  was  broken.  "Wo  ich  iim nicht liab,  1st mir  dns Grab���������"  Even Koger's blunt perceptions were  sharpened by her spiritless aspect,  and the honest follow went so fains to beg hor to confide hor troubles  to him, but in vain. Yet she tried  to shape herself for lier fate, and at  tlio sight of this unusual splendor .in.  tlie sky made an effort to rouso herself from lier brooding apathy. She  fixed lier thoughts on tlio iierfcot  order and harmonious movements of  those innumerable Hocks of stars,  and on the immutable laws followed  oven by that splendid-wanderer glowing in "tlie sky beforo lior, hoping  thus to strengthen lier" mind and uplift lier drooping spirits. But the  effort only brought slow and silent  tears, whicli fell upon the wooden  bar of tho gate over which she leant  until lier reverie ��������� was broken by. the  quick crushing of brushwood near,  and a deep and penetrating voico at  her  car  said,   "Jessie!"  Her fate wns sealed. Slie turned  with a little cry; there flushed over  her face a. radiance that could not  be'mistaken, least of all by th'o man  wiio  loved her.

All without was hushed and calm, trees made a ilnrk  mass which concealed tho comot, tho  nir was rich with the almond scent  of clematis from lho porch' below,  and balmy witli myrtle bloom, lato  flowering roses, stocks, and mignonette. There was no sound but the  flutter of a solitary bird, and when  tlio noise of wheels issued from tlie  far distnnco growing louder nnd  dying away into stillness aguin, sho  was glad. A bat flitted by tlio window, and a gray moth' fluttered  gliost-liko in, and nearly put out hor  candle in its dying struggles.  "Poor motli, poor <fooli������g thing!"  sho sighed. She turned und let hcr  gown rustle to tho floor, whore the  sound of a hard thing falling mado  her look in her pocket.  What magic and mystery wns liero?  Had  fairies been  at work? She  drew  forth  a  small  morocco-covered    box,  in the dim light, and trying with unaccustomed  fingers  to  opon  it,  made  tlio spring fly open tho wrong    way,  and   let  full   from  the   purple  velvet  lining,   with  a  faint   fairy-like    clink  rind   an   unearthly lustre, a string of  pearls.      Sho stood entranced  cf admiration and  wonder  when  she    saw  tho soft,  milky lustre of  tho   jewels  in the direct ruy  of her candle;  and  picking them up wound  them,   round  hor neck and, fastened  tho gold clasp  with a little quick snap.      Then she  clasped lier liands and looked in   tho  small dim mirror before hor nnd felt  that   curious  fascination  which     has  mado jewels the typical pi-ico of women's souls.

Sho     gazed  and    dreamed,  dreamed     and   gazed,  spell-bound, while    strange,   daarr.ling  visions swept1 forth     from the  shadowy depths  of the    mirror,  thrilling  with  fear and delight,  half shrinking  half challenging,  liko Briomartis   interrogating    Merlin's  enchanted  crystal.      Never till  then had she given  a thought to hor lover's wealth and  wordly    state        And   not till   than  had she   jknown     the power of    her  own   beauty.

Few drivers tnko tho reins without tukiug tho whip at tho snmo  timo, und out of tho vast number  who do so it would bo interesting to  know anything about its truo use.  lt is often ubusod, und its abuse  may arise from ignorance, thoughtlessness or brutality, whicli in somo  individuals appears  to  bo inherent.  Too muny highly bred, spirited  young horses ure rendered dunger-  otts or useless every yenr by tho  unnecessary use of the whip to allow this to be passed over without  dirocting- thu attention ��������� of farmers  and others to the matter.  Tlio whip can bo used witli judgment to persuade the horses to be  prompt and obedient without oasti-  gati'on; but whon a thrashing is given the well-bred colt never forgets  it, so tliat the next time anything  happens to mako a plunge, it is such  a ono that a person would think ho  was going to jump into th'o next  country. Here the foundation of future trouble is laid, for such an animal may be sold for a lady or timid man's uso and some sight or other brings thut whipping to his mind  that he bouncos off, jumps round, or  |>lungos, souring the driver, who may  loso liis or her head, which may  cause a serious accident.  Had judgment been excrcisod wlien  the first mistake occurred all this  would have been prevented in all  possibility���������if firmness has boon used  with appreciative words of correction the horse would have maintained'his composuro nn'd gono on quietly.

The liorso that requires the vrhip  is a drone and a dunce of low birth,  therefore lethargic, from which  there is no  cure,  either  by  KINDNESS OH FORCE.  But tno well-bred animal should be  treated as an intelligent creature,  and he will soon bend to man's will.  On tho othor hand, use thc whip and  lie will figlit you.

In a description of tho kingdoms  of Nigeria Lady Lugard, wife of Sir  Frederick Lugard, High Commissioner  for Northern Nigeria, said that tho  reigning chiefs were of the semi-Arab  race,of tho foulahs, or Fulani, and  what tho Great Mogul of Delhi wns  to tho India of dive's day such". Uos  the Oreat Foulali of .Sokoto to tho  Nigeria of four years ago, says the  London Times.  The Fulani were a striking people, dark in complexion, but of tho  distinguished1 feulurcs, small hands  and fino, rather aristocratic carriage  of'the Arabs ou tho Mediterranean  coast. I'hey were of the Mohammedan religion, and were h'eid by thoso  who Enow theni to be naturally endowed with the characteristics which  fitted them for rule. Tlieir theory  of justice was good, though their  practice was bad; their scheme of  taxation was most elaborate and was  carried evgn into a system of death  duties, which left little for an Knjy-  Iish Chancellor of tho Kxcliequor to  improve. Tlio caravan trade across  tho dessert, which wus already old  when the Arab historian, 131 Borki,  wrote " of tho country a. thousand  years ago, and wliich tlion supplied'  the ports of southern Kuropo with  tho leather known to us as morocco  leather, and ���������with nrany othor articles of luxury which "English' peoplo of that clay liad not yot learned  to use, continued and paid its tolls  to tho Fulani.  The Fulani had como to bo the ruling peoplo, but the Haussa, who were  also for the most part Mohammedan,  formed a very important industrial  and commercial iiprtlon of the population. The cotton cloth of Kano  was famous through the world of Africa long before the Fulani had" made  their appearance as a governing race  in history. Iron smelting and smithes  work wero spoken of in an Arabic  manuscript, not yet properly translated, which carried them back to  lho_mytliical_uut'estry-of-th'e-foimders-  of Kano. Weaving, dyeing, tanning,  brass work," leather work were among  tho local industries, and trade in  these a.s well as 'in the raw materials  with which thi* country abounds i.s  largely carried on by the Haussa  people.  Speaking of the slave trade, Lady  Lugard said that at the time of the  transfer the principle currency of Nigeria was in slaves. Largo sums  wore reckoned, not in pounds, but in  slaves; public tribute wns" paid in  slaves, and all labor was slave labor. Tlio result of tho slave trade Was  soon in depopulation. Where Barth  described in 1951 a population of  ."50,000,000 tliere were probably not  moro to-day than 10,000,000. or 12,-  000,000. Yet so wedded, were thc  Fulani rulers to the system that  when, on the assumption of power by  the llritish Government, the Emir of  Buutchl was Teinonstratcd with and  asljed to give pledges of abstaining  from slave raiding for the future,  his reply was: "Can you stop a cat  from, mousing?

Tho Russian servant is hired for  one year, and is told exactly ' what  his particular duty is to*be. Ho  then sticks to that one duty. As  long ns each servant faithfully performs the special duties of his position all is well; but the neglectful  butler, or cook, or coachman is"' sent  by the omploj'er with a written note  to the Police Judge, who after carefully investigating tlie complaints  lins a right to order bodily punishment or to write a bad mark in the  book kept for the purposo.  In grout Russian households often  from twenty to fifty, servants nre  kept, and even tho middle class families have two to four. The pay of  tlieso servants varies according to  the-lino of work. While the "chiefs"  in tho kitchens of wealthy families  often receive $1500 a year, a. cook  in an ordinary citizen's employ gets  no more than" SCO a year, an'd a  maid of all work nover gets more  than $U5 a year. At Easter every  servant gets a present, generally a  suit or dross.  Every other Sunday tlio servants  in a Russian household are entirely  free. Their work stops Saturday  night after supper, when the servants  leave the house not to return until  tho next Monday morning. The employers never ask where or liow tlio  free timo is spent.  Russian servants will pilfer. Since  Russian ladies leave everything to  the care of tlie servants, tho latter  do ns thoy please.  Thc men servants smoke cigars l.t-  longing to their masters and pny  frcquont visits to tin; wine collars of  tho house, but a gentleman ' would  consider it "demeaning" himself to  prosecute a servant for this.  The Russian servants will talk  about fellow servants, but never  about their employers. Even when  they quit one placo and tako service  in another family they would never  mention anything about their former  masters.

WATCHES HEART'S ACTION.  Aii- exceptionally useful little . instrument has lately been invented and  is in constant use in tho Massachusetts Hospital.

Tlio  left hemisphere gets, in consequence,  moro than its proper share of tho  blood which" is continually being  pumped upw.ar'ds by that crgnn.  If tho heart wore on the right side  of tho body, mankind would be left-  handed; as It is, Jio is, and always  will be, right-handed. Tills follows  naturally; but, of course, training  and custom will :.work wonders in this  direction as in any other.  For Instance, most men who sliavo  ih'omsclvos are able to use a razor,  an exceedingly /delicate instrument,  equally well with both hands..  A distinguished member of tlie Royal Academy, now living, has taught  himself to writo simultaneously with  two pencils, one being held in tho  right hand.   ���������  THE OTHER IN THE LEFT.  Tho caligrapliy of the one is forward,  the other backward, but both aro  equally plain and legible. Also, there  is an eminent London surgeon, recently made a knight, who spent threo  years teaching himself to use both  hands independently in' order to aid  him in operating.  Every lover of Ilrst-class cricket,  too, must have noticed tliat many of  our best fielders have acquired the  art of using cither arm equally well.  Otiier leading exponents of the game  have taught themselves to bowl left-  handed while continuing to bat right-  handed.  The trained pugilist, again, makes  far more use of his left hand than  of his right, both for offence and for  defence. And the violinist or the pianist brings both hancls into play equally, although after a dilTeront fashion.  All of which goes to prove tliat,  although man is naturally a right-  handed animal, it is a comparatively  easy matter for him to acquire equal  dexterity with either,  or with     both.  Also, thore is every reason to believe that paleolithic man was ambidextrous, at all events to a far greater extent than his modern descendant.  "But- how. on earth," you perhaps  notj.--uiimituro.lJ_y- - imjulro,- -"can- wc  speak thus confidently about a gentleman who roamed this earth for the  last time ,some iivp hundred centuries  ago?"  The answer is that the 'paleolithic  man was, in his way, both' a sculptor and nn artist, and wo know, from  the specimens of his work which have  come down to us, that Ho carved and  painted just as- often with his loft  hand as with his right, and  just as successfully;     ''  For these specimens are mostly faces and figures in profile of men and  animals, drawn on or cut in bono or  mammoth' tusk, ' and their faces or  heads are indiscriminately left and  right.  Modern man does not do this. Try  for yourself. Draw with the forefinger of your right hand an imaginary human profile on tiie page on  which these words are printed. You  will find that you naturally and instinctively draw it with the face  turned towards  tlie- left.  Now trace a similar profile, in imagination again, with the forefinger  of your left hand. You will observe  that you just as naturally and instinctively draw i'i lookiru? to" the  right.  Thc infore.-ifc :*s obvious. Thoso  primitive men, who draw right-inclined and left-inclined profiles with equal grace, and equally often, must liave  been able and accustomed to use both  hands' wicli~oqual "artistic-c'u"nniiig~and  skill.  It is pretty certain, however, that  tlijy usod lhair right liands in fighting moro than tliey did their loft.  Fighting oven in those curly days was  done with* weapons of a sort, pointed  weapons too, and your typical primitive man quickly discovered for himself that to- spoors nnd swords thc  heart was very vulnerable. So ho  used his left Hand to .guard it, thereby condemning that member to comparative  inactivity,  and  FOUGHT WITH HIS RIGHT.  Woman, however,': did comparatively,  little fighting: and, as a consequence,  she retains, even to this day, a far  greater degree of ambidextrous skill  than man. She.buttons,'for instance,  lier dresses with her left hand, and  they are made, presumably, to suit  her convenience in this direction, with  the buttons on the left side and the  button-holeo on the right.  Man, oh the other hand, has for  unnumbered centuries  found  it  inusculnr action on tlie right sido]ono of thos? who has proved this beyond tho shadow of a doubt. Mr.  Robertson  says:  "My feet wore so much swollen  from Dropsy that when I got out of  bed in the mornings I could hardly  put them on thc floor. My arms usod  to swell at times so that I could not  put on my, coat.  "I liad to be tapped to relievo mo  of tho terrible pains.  "On the advice of a friend I began  to taRe Dodd's Kidney Pills,  and before I had used the second box  I began to feel better. Soven boxes  cured me completely."
