AU Kinds of Inducements made  by   Liberal    Government   to  Capture   Constituencies���������Roll  Up, Tumble Up.  The Toronto News (Independent),  edited hy J. T. Willison, formerly  editor of the Globe, the chief Liberal  organ, publishes the following editorial on tho actions of the Laurier  Government:  "The Government that 'does things'  was never so active as during the few  weeks that have passed since Parliament was dissolved. "Waterfronts are  improved, bridges erected, post offices  provided, wilh a celerity that fills the  beholder with great awe and solemn  wonder.  "Just, as Urquhart was nominated  for North Toronto a bridge dropped  from his sleeve hefore the enraptured  delegates. "We are waiting to see a  dredge chase "Major Leslie along the  muddy Don in East Toronto, and Mr.  Dewart will prove a disappointment  in the South, if it is found that no  harbor improvements are concealed  about his persoD. Eobinetle, in Centre, is thought, to be Latching a new  wing for the drill shed, and Captain  Tliinter, in the West, will be expected  to have something new in Government  supplies, cut according to the latest  fashion, and warranted to wash, until  the close of the campaign.  "Mr. Eastwood has now a bay front  for Hamilton, and Aylesworth a canal  for Port Hope'. Guthrie litis enlarged  the post, office in Guelph and Donnely  is to get $50,000 or more.on account  for Simcoe. . In "Winnipeg -a new  branch post oflice and improvements'  at St. Andrew's rapids, have dropped  auspiciously from the full hands of  the Government candidate. So in  "West Northumberland, just/as the  Liberal candidate was nominated- a  dredge made ils -welcome appearauce  in Cobourg harbor. Surveyors arc*out  along the*Georgian Bay canal and the  Transcontinental- "Railway" commissioners have gone on a circuit.  "All along the route there will be  something doing, and at each stage  the royalprogress will he superintended by Government candidates. No  constituency will be neglected tind no  proper demand refused.  "Even- in remote Prince Edward  Island, the omnipresent Government  yearns over its devoted people, and  simultaneously with the appearance ot  its candidates they receive lower telegraphic rates and night ser\ice. On  the "Welltind canal the faithful ein-  ployes. in the face of a baid winter  and a "harder election, have got an  increase of'wages, and at Ottawa good  fortuno has come to the laborers at  the Experimental farm and to the  Dominion Constabulary. AU this,  however, is as nothing to the two  hundred millions to be paid out to  labor in the construction of the transcontinental railway, at standard rates,  with no sweating and with time  allowed for Labor Day.  _ "There will, be hard times, we are  told, in Germany, South Africa, the  United Slates and Great Britajn, but  in larger Canada there will be a riot  of plenty, with money to burn.

Fire'2nd Sfcrk FJshihg- .Vessels  in the > North Sea���������Great Britain ' Demands ' Immediate  Reparation.  IlblX, Eng.. Oct. 25.���������Warships of  the Russian Baltic squadron, on their  way lo light the Japanese,'nttacked  defenceless vessels of the British fishing licet in tlie North Sea early last  Saturday morning.  One vessel was sunk, the steam  trawler Crane, and her captain and  mate were instantly killed. It is  reported that one or two othor vessels  were so badly damaged that they went  down. Of the hundred and sixty fishing vessels through which the Russian  vessels passed! five are still unaccounted for.and some anxiety exists regarding their safely,  London*, Oct. 25, 5 p.m.���������The British  Government this afternoon sent urgent  notes of protest to the Russian Government on the subject of the Russian  attack on the British fishing fleet in  the North Sea. The notes were sent'  both through Ambassador Uardinge  aiid the Russian Ambassador in London, s  Iu Lord Lansdowne's protest special  stress is laid on the callousness displayed by the Russians in oot going  to tho assistance of tho fishermen.  "Lord-Lansdowne���������asks���������that���������redress-  shall be made.  lt is believed in Government circles  that tho Russian Government will  take the earliest opportunity to give  satisfaction, and it appears to be expected that Russia will explain lhe  affair, adding that the Russian officials  had reasons to believe that there were  mines or ships with mines in the  neighborhood where the, fishing fleet  was attacked.  Mean Tactics.  - The more recent trick played by  some of William Galliber's supporters  is to go to a voter and say, "I'm a  hide-bound Liberal, but if tho Govern-  :"nient is defeated, I will vote Conservative; now, will you agree to reverse  your vote .according to theso terms?"  This is "heads I win, tails you lose,"  for the only hope Mr. Galliher's supporters have is that the Government  may be sustained,, otherwise.-.: the  "grafters" will desert "Mr. Galliher.  Our friends are not made of compromising stuff. Wo strongly, urge.'all-  newspapers and all Conservative committees to caution Mr. Mackintosh's  supporters against being cajoled by  tactics such as these. There is a great  principle tit stake, let electors not  forget this.  The Same Man "  A writer to the Nelson Tribune asks  the following question and the Tribune gives the answer below : Is John  Boultlme, the returning officer, for  Kootenay electoral district, the John  Boultbee, who, when policemagistrate  of Rossland, sentenced Tom Beamish  to three months in the provincial jail  at Nelson for interfering with the  aliens imported to work in the Le Roi  mine in 1802 ?  TJ. N. Miner.  October, 10th.  A man by the name of John Boultbee was at one time police magistrate  of Rossland.  Leader of Conservative Party  Issues an Address to the  People���������Canada for the Canadians.  The leader of the Conservative party Mr. R. L. Borden has issued the  following message :  Halifax, N. S.,  Oct. 21, 1001.  To the PnoviiJS op Canada.  Parliament is now dissolved and  political parties must submit themselves, tlieir actions and their policies  to the judgment of the people.  Since my election to the leadership  of the Liberal-Conservative party, it  has been my privilege to address  audiences in every province and territory of the Dominion, the Yukon  excepted, and with my colleagues to  discuss in parliament many subjects  affecting the public weal. Our policy  has been clearly" defined and consistent, the same in every quarter, alike  to 'every class. The records of parliament show whero we stand on the  public questions which have been  before the country sinco tlie last elections. These cannot all be discussed  in this message, but in regard to some  of the principal issues involved in this  contests I submit a few' words fiom  the platform ,on which wo appear for  your judgment.  The subject of most immediate.concern is transportation. Having regard  to . the   enormous  obligations  which  would be, imposed upon the people by  tho Government's rash" transcontinental  project, tb-llie < certainty 'that its  adoption by you' would shut out for"a  century    government   ownership   of  railways; to   the   vital  importance of  controlling our   own  traffic and commerce; this question  is the most momentous aud  far   reaching that has  ever been submitted  to the electorate  of  Canada.     The immense territory  and ever increasing products .of Canada  demand the best and most economical transportation. We know that  the people iire willing to provide generously  whatever  money    may    be  necessary for the development of the  Dominion and our policy is to extend  and improve its transportation facilities   by land   and   by  water but we  insist   that   what   the   people pay for  the   people   should own  tind control;  I hn I public  money should  be used for  Canada for ils people tind not to promote    the    trade    and     wealth   of  foreign people.     We fully realize the  ccnTntiy'sIieeds"foiriiiTre;ised_facilities"  of transportation, efficient service and  reasonable rates must bc assured.  We  also confirm   the   necessity   of  thoroughly equipping our national  ports  and ol developing anil  extending our  system of  canals tind   inland  wafer-  ways.   The principles upon which  Sir  John A.  MacDonaltl based  his  fiscal  policy iu  1878 guide, us  to-day.    Wc  maintain and   we   will   develop that  policy  fOr thu  ad van cement   of the  whole Dominion.    It is a stable policy  avowed openly without reserve.���������  It is  it practical business policy  adjustable  to tlio needs of the time,      Our aim is  so to apply it for lho common good of  the  people and for the  conservation  of   tho    Canadian'   market   for   the  Canadian producer, that honest industry in  every   legitimate  calling may  receive a just reward,  that the toller  mayenjoy in Ins  own land full  employment.;'' under    conditions which  ensure a. just wage, that  capital may  he attracted   to   and   may   bo   safely  invested    in    otiv    Industries.   Tliat  articles and commodities required for  tho use of our peoplo may be produced  as far as is reasonably possible in  this  country.   We believe that any of our  markets by means of reciprocal trade  arrangements should besought among  those within the Empire who are our  customers   rather  than     in    foreign  countries.   A preference for our products in British markets would lead to  ori immediate onormous development  of our resources.     Such a preference  the Conservative party will endeavor  to obtain on favorable terms.  R. L.

THK  LINEN   COSTUME.  Among the charming costumes of  linen seen lately wa.s one of light  brown, of Eton coat and round skirt.  The skirt was laid in wide pidcpluits  released about the knees, and tho  little coat was belted in at the waist  and blouscd a little all around abovo  it. Tho fronts camo together at the  v>otto:u, but rounded" up���������with n  liliglitly squared cut���������al. the top, nt  thc uiper portions, and thn sleeves  small nt the top, were gathered in  wide cuffs.. A stitched band of tho  linen formed tho finish to tho neck  and fronts. Thore was uo trimming  of any sort used. The round straw  hat, a trifle lighter thnn the linen,  had a br:m that was bent down irregularly all round, and from tho  iow crown stray cherries, shaded rod,  swung  at  intervals.  An" odd white linen frock, made  with an almost tight bodice ond an  equally tight skirt, which hugged the  figure "to the knees, was covered as  to bodice and tho upper portion of  -the skirt with heavy white linen laco,  that on the skirt formed a design  ending in points like rays abovo the  wide circular blouse and tho blouso,  although it wa.s drawn :Xi tightly as  to be practically a close bodice was  completely covered with it, as wore  the sleeves, which, close near tho  shoulders, sagged above the linen  lace cuffs. The woman wearing this  costume nlso wore a round white  sailor hat, the crown of which had a  band wreath of white roses with a  loose black velvet bow across the  top of thc brim at the front, and  another at the. back, but under the  brim anil attached to a bandeau.  HIGH   CROWNS   rREDOltflNANT.  Thc models from abroad in hats  nearly ail show decided if not high  crowns. Velvet is to bo used, and a  novelty in chenille braids is the employment of shaded effects, and black  chenille bands trimmed with swinging bugles is tho most marked novelty in  these.  Frosted beads of large size arc  Used on new models, and appear as  both- crown  and   brim  ornaments.  Paris marie.hats of embroidery and  straw combined are trimmed, among  other things, with aigrettes of barley, oats," or-wheat.-. A bundle of the  straw is tied as a sheaf, and placed  upright at one side of the hat. Poppies and other'field Jiowcrs arc sometimes used with the grain.  Thc foundation for some lace hats  has the black iace threaded with  gold or other metallic..threads.  On red hats', which are not so fashionable this season as previously,  blackberries, varying from palo green  to black and.interspersed with straw  like white flowers, are used. Cherries shading from pink to red and  black are always used more or less.  Stamped cut out velvet for hat  trimmings and facings are another  novelty in hat trimmings..  FUR   BANDS   ON   GOWNS.  As previously mentioned, bands of  fur will be used on gowns for autumn and winter wear. Already late  autumn walking and carriage gowns  are being offered in Paris having  their coats trimmed with" inch wide  bands of fur, and on certain of these  coats the scams are outlined with  .���������.Trips of fur, a style of trinuning  rather odd than artistic. Hark furs  are given the preference for trimming  rostumes.  These fur trimmed coats are cut  with narrow backs shewing no center  seam, wide under arm sections, and  narrow front pieces. Most of them  are collarlcss, and whon collars are  used they are the turned down variety. 'J"he sleeves are coat shaped  and not at all tight.  New blouses in Paris are. made of  alternate rows of ribbon and lliis-  t-ian lace. The ribbon used is only  half the width of the lace employed,  the^ latter being of mixed colorings.  ~ 'rh~Ese~7rF'r~wo r7i~w i th~"sklr ts" th<5~co to r-  of which match the ribbon or thc  lace; and are worn over fitting silk  undc-rbodios or corset covers without  vokes  or  i-.Icevo.s.  IHI MHILISM PROSPERS  RUSSIAN* SAILORS ARE TREATED  LIKE   CATTLE.  And Whipped While at Work TTntil  They  and Their Persecutors  Aro  Exhausted.  "The men are cattle, and tlie officers, brutes.'' So-spoke (says a-w-riter  in the .London Daily Despatch) a  lieutenant in the Knglish navy to me  the other day. Ho had been telling  me an awful story; awful not s>o  much from thc intrinsic facts as from  what those facts suggest. He had  been with our China squadron and in  one port, had seen a Russian man-of-  war coaling. The whole timo tho  bunkers were being filled thc whips  never ceased going. The Russian oflicors stood over tlie sailors, lashing  thcm continuously. Could any fact  be more eloquent, more suggestive ?  In thc thud of tho whips as they foil  on the shoulders cf the cowardly,  beast-like sailers, you might hear  the echo of all the cruelty, the ignorance and the public dishonesty  which are making it possible for -Japan to win each light in the Far  East. "Every   nation,"  says    tho  proverb, "hus the government it de-  Eorves." Russia will some day  awaken to it all, and a revolution  ns bloody as the French' will wipe  out the tyrants and bureaucracies,  tho lying, thieving nobles and officials. Meanwhile, the whip falls nnd  the peasant's back winces, and "King  Knout" is lord of all.  Tho knout is one of the most terrible instruments of punishment ' over  invented by man, and to be sentenced  to it, as admininistercd by Russian  "justice," is often equivalent to  death���������tlio maximum sentence of 101  lashes i.s indeed regarded by the Russian  tribunals as  A  CAPITAL ONE.  Knouts differ In form just as do  "cats" and birches in England; but  the usual one is a heavy leather  thong some six feet long. Thc lash  is flat and" hard, and ends in a beaklike hook. It is sometimes bound  with' wire thread, making its edges  sharp b-o as to cut into the victim's  back, "Knouting" is regarded as a  profession, needing long study and.  practice, nnd executioners have to  sorv������ an apprenticeship before being  called into tho prison service. In  former times the "knouter" was usually a criminal condemned to the  whip, but reprieved, and then burdened with the task for twelve years  whilst instructing others, who learned thc rudiments of the art on a lay  Hguro.  I'he offender Is stretched on an inclined frame aud his hands and feet  nre extended at full length and fas-1  tened to iron rings at the extremities of the frame. Sometimes the  head i.s tied up in such a way as to  prevent any movement or cry of suffering to escape him. Different pris-  "nci's aro knouted in different degrees,  according to th'eir crimes, the punishment varying from a severe  thrashing to certain death. Immediate death may bo caused by making  the victim dislocate his own nock in  the agony of his struggles against,  tho iron ring securing his head. Or  death may be delayed a day or two  by making the lash wind around the  body, cutting into the breast and  inflicting mortal injury. A skilled  "knouter" could smash a brick into  dust at a single blow, so wonderful  became the perfection of aim with  the  hideous  weapon.  The records of the lash in Russia  are terrible enough. Beginning with  tlio fearful history of Peter the  Great, who is accused by history of  having knouted his- own son to death  the secret story of mis-governed Russia  is  A   WISE  MOTHER,  ones suffer by stupefying   them  sleeping   draughts,      "soothing"  A wise mother never attempts to  cure the ailments from whicli hor  littlo  with  sleeping  preparations and similar medicines  containing opiates. This class of  medicines nre responsible for' thc untimely death of thousands of littlo  one.'i, though some mothers may not  realize it. When your little ones are  ailing give them Baby's Own Tab-  lots, a medicine sold urxlcr a guarantee to contain no opiate or harmful drug. Mothers who havo used thc  Tablets always speak in their  praise. 'Mrs. A. Johnston, Eddy-  stone, Out., says : "J Iind Baby's  Own Tablets all you recommend  them to be. My bnby was troubled  with eczema, and was vcry cross and  restless, but since giving her thc  Tahlets she has become quite well  and i.s now a strong healthy child."  Sold by all druggists or sent b.v  mail at 25 cents a box by writing  Tho Pr. Williams' Medicino Co.,  Brockville,   Ont.  boen abolished, or as good as abolished. That i.s all rubbish. On paper,  perhaps, but imperial decrees count  for nothing, when you have a Bobri-  koff or a Kouropatkin. And" lashing  is a national institution, whicli no  decrees will end. Insubordinate servants are flogged; children are, of  course flogged, mounted Cossacks  beat street crowds like drovers do  cattle. The     greatest     of  Russian  poets, Pushkin, was arrested and  flogged in the rooms of the prefect of  police by order of the Czar, bcrause  hin verse was characterized by a  frank criticism which was not welcome  to  imperial circles.  And with the lash the i.'iadow bf  Siberia lowers over all. A friend of  tho writer, at Moscow for the czar's  coronation, had an acquaintance with  a waiter who looked after him each  night at dinner. The fellow was industrious, intelligent and coo'd-tem-  pored. The day after the ceremony  my friend went to the restaurant for  his meal: thc waiter wus not in his  place. His enquiry brought nothing  but shrugs of the shoulders and Que  vouloz.-vouscs from the man's comrades, until at last the manager confidentially related how Ivan had incautiously said : "What a shame to  waste so many roubles on the Little  Father's coronation when the people  of Moscow are starving." and the  manager added : "It is Siberia. Wc  shall never see Ivan again." But  Ivan is only treading the-road of sorrows so many feet, have trod, and if  ho stumbles the lash rails brutally on  his back, ond beforo him lies Sagha-  licn and tlie knout, and behind him a  peoplo  lushed   into  a  sullen  apathy.   4   MONEY-MAKING.

The following arc from nn old  scrap-book.: An independent man is-  one who blacks hi.s own boots, who  can livo without whiskey ond tobacco, who earns' at least a penny  a day morc than ho" spends, and who  can, upon a pinch, shave himself  with brown soap and cold water  without a mirror. A great man is  one who can teach hi.s children to  obey him when out of bis sight. A  hospitable man is never ashamed of  his dinner when a friend unexpectedly drops in to dine with him. A  sensible wife looks for her enjoyment  at home���������a silly ono abroad. A wise  girl would win a lover by practising  those virtues which secure admiration when personal charms have faded. A simple girl endeavors to recommend herself by the exhibition of  frivolous accomplishments and by  mawkish sentiment, wliich has littlo  to do with a true heart as the gaudy  dress Mho wears. A good girl always  respects herself, nnd is thus sure to  be respected by others. Alios remain  apes, though you clothe tbem with  velvet. We often pardon those wiio  weary us, but we cannot pardon  tliose whom wc weary.  -.. +   MAN WITH  TWO  HEARTS.  Another interesting discovery has  been made in connection with" the  man Giuseppe de Maggio, of Alessa-  no, Italy, whose heart, it was announced some time ago, was situated  on the right side. Thc doctors have  again examined Maggio, and have 'declared that hc possesses two hourts���������  one which beats on the right, the  other insensible and immobile on the  left. Jn addition to his two hearts,  the man has two ribs more than  normally-constituted individuals.

Their .sentence was  that they were to bo knouted in each  town in which their crimes of robbery had been committed. Each was  bound in turn witli hands, feet and  head fastened, and beaten with a  knout as thick as a man's wrist.  Not-one of the men survived'to reach  the last fow towns; they were &11  beaten to death. They were criminals, but the knout is no respector of  liersons,.:- and, ��������� unlike.:;i 11.-other���������Euro-_  pean lands, all subjects of the Czar  ���������even the high born bounties of- the  land���������are liable to its punishment.  There is the historic case of .Madame  Capuchin, one of the beauties of the  Court of Czarina Elizabeth. She hnd  been compromised with a love affair  with an ambassador, and some royal  secrot Had been made public. She  was at lirst ordered to have her tongue cut out, but tho Empress'changed the iwiialty to knouting. lieaiiti-  . fully dressed she appeared on the  j Ecnffold ojvd Made a. pitiful appeal to  /the crowd to save lier. Hut the  1 Russian Jn what his long servitude  lias made him. and they saw her  stripped to lier waist ajid .scoured  till the blood from the -wounds in  Che back dyed her skirt crimson. In  all grades of society there are stories  of women having boen flogged with  terrible severity; even ladfos of rank,  guilty of .small, offences, being sent  off to tho police station, like ordinary criminals, and suhiected to grossest, indignities and cruelties. A German newspaper is the authority for  an extraordinary instance of this.  The victims were three noted boau-  tios*"\vho" were actually seized at an  imperial ball and driven straight  from the palace in llieir own carriages to the polico station, just ns  they were, in ������ their superb dresses  and jewels to* be-, /logged for an offence which was really nothing than  "gossiping." After the outbreak of  thc Crimean war thc Russian government issued an order for supplies of  lint, rags nnd other necessities of tho  liold hospitals. The wife of tl'.e  governor of Moscow, hearing of l.ho  superior forces of the English' nnd  French, frivolously said that "the  supplies- worn not likely to be needed." Tho remark wan overheard, reported to the police, and she was  SU AUTO NED  TO   APPEAR.  1,'nnblo   to   deny   the.  charge,   sho   was  flogged   in  so  merciless  a.   manner  as  to break  the  bone of one arm.

Charlton, of the Grand Trunk Railway System, who has just returned  from the "JVorld's Fair" at St.  Louis, some interesting information  was gleaned regarding this largest of  Expositions ever held. Many of the  Eastern people, said Mr. Charlton,  are under the. impression that thc  temperature of "St. Louis at this  time of the year i.s unbearable and  that tlio mercury reaches a high  point. This impression is quite erroneous and the average for thc past  week shows 72 degrees. Tho days  arc pleas-ant and tbe evenings cool  and comfortable. Thousands of people aro now reaching St. Louis from  all parts of the country and ' during  the rest of tlte life of the Exhibition  (December 1st) hundreds of thousands will have visited this mammoth undertaking.

"It would! bo a scoundrelly desertion, though she did offer to release  mo from it," he replied.  "Kolense you?"

She' turned away ancl looked at the  fqtiming- water for some time, and  then turned and looked straight in  his.face, with anoarnest,'candid gaze'  that wont tlirough liim.

"But you wished," she said, turning her face once more toward liim  bo that he saw the tears shilling  in Hor eyes, ."to tell hie of -your  trouble. Never mind yesterday, May  I see the letter?"  They read it together,    he explaining here  and there  what  seemed necessary.      It was written  immediately after Jessie's last visit to Marwell  HectoryL when  Muss  Tngleby had-received her with such marked coldness;  it related the scandal as it was bit7-/.-  ed about   the place,  also  Mr.  Ingleby's view  of the    actual facts,     his  conviction of   Jessie's    perfect integrity  and  child-like  ignorance  of conventionalities.        It  * spoke  of    Mrs.-  Plummer's practical neglect of Jessie  in suffering hor    to    go about unat-  ,  tended, "and  of  tho  total   impossibility, of. inaking either the Plummers .or  Cheese-man    comprehend thc kind    of  guardianship a girl     like Jessie    required,   and  of  the  impossibility     of  . keeping      a     young     woman   of her  breeding  and   tastes  chained  to     the  homely    occupations and "companionship of one so uncultivated as   Mrs.  Plummer. '   Jessie's   previous    foiled  attempts at confidence to herself were  recapitulated;  her mental  and  moral  loneliness,    her    great    beauty    ancl  charm, .���������."��������� her    talonts,  "her dangerous  visit  to    Harwell     Court and    false  position there;  all were dwelt    upon  affectionately, even lovingly.   His sister's line  of conduct  toward     Jessie  vvas regretted,     and the conversation  he had had    with    her on    hcr way  from tlio Rectory was related.     But,  bravely as Jessie had  accepted    the  consequences of her error,  Mr. Ingleby said,  in    conclusion, .he did    not  think  she  could  possibly,    remain  in  thc  neighborhood  aftor  such a  scandal, and great as was his confidence  in her integrity    and high  principle,  ��������� ono never knew what unadvised steps  a girl might take.in despair.

"But,if sho 'does hot, she may be  won," she. urged, turning again with  tho same earnest gaze. "You may  think it strange," she added, with a  vivid flush, "but girls expect to be  courted',, It is a homage that ought  hot to be withheld."  "And yet���������" ho; paused, remembering that he had said no word of love  to Ada, though every timo ho look-  od at her. his eyes told "tho tale.  : "Do you remember 'Andromache's  parting from Hector?" she continued.  'Father, thou' art to me and mother  dear, and brother : too, kind: husband  of my heart'' ..That'-.is the relationship 'between you and Jessie, my  friend."  "She lias no one else," ho asserted  awed by the pathetic tenderness  which Ada's beautiful voice gave to  theso words.  "And is six thousand miles away,  in grave peril, alone and unprotected," she continued, looking down  upon him through oyes brilliant with  tears. Sho had grown rather pale  during the interview; she was now  bonding slightly toward him, hor faco'  partially shaded by ono hand, hcr'attitude, as she sat inclining toward  the cascade, with one knee on which  her arm rested,1 higher than the other, singularly s\veet " and graceful,  and expressive beyond all words.  "There is no one like you!" 'he  criod. "No one. Who could help  loving you?';  "There is no one," she continued,  suffering two bright tears to fall unheeded, "liko Philip Randal,; in honor  and truth. Philip, which would  you rather have, a disloyal lover or  .a-staunch friend?"  "But I. must leave you and; never  see you again," he murmured, huskily,   "never see you,  neier!"  "You will got over this, you will  conquer yourself,'- she replied, with  tho same sweet gontloncss and the  samo earnest gaze.

"And you, Ada? What will you  do?" he asked, in half smothered  tones.  A sudden burst of tears was the  unexpected and disquieting reply. Ho  stood with his back to the rock, and  his arms folded across his chest, and  looked at her with a while face and  gleaming oyes.  "Anything but this," he groaned.  "I cannot bear this,"  Slie checked herself, quietly dried  hor eyes, nnd summoned a sweet,  tender smilo to hor face.  "1 hope 1 shall do well," she replied, resuming her former attitude;  "I have a thousand plans and projects, all for the good and welfare of  mankind," she added, with a littlo  dainty sarcasm.

We must go. See how the shadows  slant. They will, be looking for us."  "One minute more.. I may never  soo you again." he cried, trying to  prevent her from leaving lier rocky  seat, "and I must never even think  Of you   again"."  "Not yet," she replied," taking the  hand extended .to help h'cr down from  her niche by the water, "not till  things arc right at homo.

"Live  instcad;  live  well',; livo, nobly,"  she rejoined.      "Oh,  Philip,  dying- is    easy    enough,  living is     the  hard part."  Hc turned  away.  "Philip!"  she exclaimed,  "Philip!"  He  turned,  extended  his' arms  an'd  would have    embraced her,  but that  sho drew,   back    gently   and repelled  him.

Sho moved from the waterfall as  she spoke, thc hoarse murmur of the  waters became fainter 'and fainter,  the shadows of the trees deepened  nbove their heads, tho river faded  once more into' blue glimpses beneath  leafy canopies. Philip made some  fervid, halfrarticulatc rejoinder.; as he  walked by her : side full'-'.'of'sudden  perfect peace, and lifted "up ..iri; heart  as he had never-been before.  They, separated beiore appearing at  the river side, where the yacht was  about to set sail, the young peoplo  supposed "Ada to have remained with  her mother; who imagined her to  have been _with thc party exploring  tho temple'. -The-eligible civilian-reproved her for" her 'desertion, and she  told how stiff and aching* her yesterday's tumble had made" her. and was  moro gracious, to , him than hc re-*  rriembcre'd to have seen-.her.;' Philip  devoted- himself - to Mrs. Maynard,  whom he .Helped on board; then he.'had  a- brief-chat- with-th'c colonel, -telling  him that family affairs called him  suddenly home, nnd that he was obliged to give up his staff appointment and ask for leave, nt which  Colonel Mnynard was greatly concerned. He plainly told Philip that  such an opportunity ns hc hnd now  fell to the lot of few, nnd might, nover occur again, and implored him to  consider before he threw it a way.  Afterward, hc told his wife that hc  verily believed "that little flirt Ada  sen of liquid rose, now of amethyst  violet,  amber,     primrose,  now floods  of dissolved rubies.  But thc glowing radiance burned  too swiftly away, the last stain left  the watcra, the sudden night fell long  before they reached their landing  placo. They saw great stars orb  themselves in the dark sky and tremble upon thc river's breast) and whon  they landed, a broad moon was just  Peeping above the horizon, its mellow light was gliding tho dark and  glossy loaves of the: orange-trees, and  lending a new witchery to tho slender palms and delicate acacias in thc  garden.  Philip and 'Ada lingered behind, unnoticed in the darkness, and walked  together In tho shadow of thoso  beautiful trees, touched now and  again by tho mystical glory of thu  rising moon. Here they clasped  hands for thc last time, and bid each  other farewell with ovor-full hearts.  Then Ada mingled with tho others  on the verandah; people wished each  othor good-night there, sho shivering  in the chill air, though Philip liad  wrapped her In a warm, shawl.  She heard his quick firm stops as  he passed beneath thc Orange-trees  and out of tho compound into the  road, on wliich he had been walking  when hor rose struck his face. Then  tliey died away, and she owned, on  being questioned, that she was very  tired.  A  week or two later Philip   stood"  on the dock of a steamer and watched  the Indian shore,, with the gilded  domes    and    light     minarets   of   its  brooding city lesson, and-fade, in ^tho  distance. ."-   Not quite two years   before he'hnd  landed  in  the unknown,  marvel-teeming    Asian     country,     a  stranger and an exile,    with a. - deep  yearning  for  pale English  skies and  palo misty    English shores; hc '  had  clouded with terror;  out of tho.dark  heart    of the   horror   and  strife     of  thoso days ho had plucked the beautiful, flower he might never wear, hc  had fought    and . suffered, ancl   .won  himself a - name that'...'' hc must    now  bury    in   obscurity;    ho was bidding  good-bye to. everything he cared for.  Farewell now   to    the blazing   suns,  the broad    rich:   plains,   the mighty  mountains ranges, the beautiful cities  rich with unfamiliar architecture and  dense dark groves,     the   palm-circled  temples,  the dark" picturesque people  of many  creeds,  races,  and  tongues,  the   castle-crested    hills,    the     thick  forests     haunted   by fierce    beautiful  beasts   and    fierce beautiful reptiles,  the'briof' but glowing dawns and sunsets,  and the; sudden-star-lit   nights.  Farewell to the dignified politeness of  the grave, brightly clod, jewelled nobles,  the sound- of the: rich southern  languages,    the  mystery  surrounding  beings so alien to European    habits  and thoughts.        All was fascination  to him in that land ofimarvel. "Even  the stately tramp of elephants, those  huge sagacious creatures with    morc  than   human   ' intelligence,  even    the  jolting swaying pace of a camel, had  a sort of charm, when one was    not  riding it.   -. But how*much    greater  was the charm^  of rose gardens, orange and lime groves, and above all  of that rocky waterfall, shadowed by  its blender     bamboos     and  drooping  palms!  -  Thc  sound  of those  fulling  waters    would " always haunt    him,  blended with' the    sweeter sound    of  Ada's voice. ��������� Farewell now to those  memories; he must nover dwell   upon  them again.      Yet that hour by the  waterfall  nerved    him  to his     duty,  and his love,     then entered upon    a  higher phase.     It had till then been"  so hard to    give up, now it seemed  simply right and    inevitable;  loyalty  Was no .niore divided; in being loyal  to earlier claims he wauld best keep  faith with Ada.  Tho shores faded into the general  bluencss, and he ; turned away from  tlie-charmed scones of romance, love,  and glory, forgetful of the horror  and suffering through which these  had been won, and set his face toward chill gray England and the  hill prose of duty.  ��������� Deeply as he pitied Jessie, and  strongly as he felt his responsibility  toward her, ho was extremely angry  with her, angry yiilh thc cold disapproving anger" that-only a*-man "can  feel, and only 'toward a woman .who  belongs .to him" ,nnd who has, however si ightly, ' compromised ' herself.

Whilo there  aro marked resemblances as to conformity und to well established lines  of  milk   production,   still   individual  differences exist   among   dairy   cows  as  to  tho quantity of  food  digested  and  tho    economical   production     of  milk.     To  select a  dairy cow     that  hns  thc  qualities  tliat  produce  milk  and butter most economically is    no  easy"task,  and  one  in which experts  In tho dairy business often full  wide  of tho mnrk.     It  is not diflleult    to  select a young steer flint will  fatten  quickly on thc amount of food consumed     per    pound     of  gain.     Tho  blocky finish, short thick neck, broad  head,   broad   Shoulders,   well     spring  ribs, good depth and width of   body,  straight, back,  loins strong,  thick, a  deep chest, legs moderately short and  well set apart is found in the combination of that specimen of cattlo that  converts  feed  into- economical     beef  production.    Tho feed  given  lo  such  stock goes t.o meat,   that is - placed  on that nai't of: the carcass where it  brings     the.   most     money    when  it  roaches the block, but!with' the dairy  cow indications are not so sure or as  apparent    as  in  the  selection  of     a  steer for thn feed lot. Function governs largely the dairy cow and -: requires  much    experience and  careful  judgment to determine  the choice of  a good daily animal for the profit of  tho, dairy  depends  upon  the  quality  of the dairy herd.  A good    cow differs    from a poor  onu  in at least two respects;     first,  her ability to cnt and digest a large  amount of food; second, the converting of this food into a large amount  of milk anil buttcr fat. To perform  these, two functions a good dairy  cow should have a good capacity Tor  disposing of a large amount" of.''food.  This-copncily is.indicated by.a large  abdomen, which gives Abundance of  room for the working of the digestive organs. Wc should, not forget  that the cow is a! machine and notability to manufacture' crude material into milk requires plenty of room  in hor abdomen. Tho milk is elaborated from the food nmleri.il-? dissolved in the blood of the udder.  IN Tllf; IDEAL DAIRY COWS,  the udeor should bo well developed,  extending woll forward, broad be-  hiod, teats well spread apart and of  convenient size for grasping easily  with the liands They should be  soft and skimmy, rather than fleshy,  when empty.  In general     conformation,   a   good  milker  is,   quite  tho.reverse    of, the  beef    steer.       She   Is "���������. wedge-shaped  when viewed from the front, that is,  sho has a  slim,  flat neck und  is  rather  slim  throughout  the   .shoulders.  A dairy cow has no use for a broad  back  on  whisdi to  store  fat,   neither  'has     she     use "for  thick    and  beefy,  thighs.    The forelegs .should be large  above     thc  kneos  and     smaller     towards the ankles;   thighs' "'thick     nnd  well  spread  apart,   giving  room   for  the'udder.     .The   dairy cow may be  said to bo "loose jointed" when compared   wiih "  the   beef  animal.     The  value of  the dairy cow  is  found    in  her  ability  to  digest   food'and     to  elaborate.it  into  milk;  : she    should  have a fine,  soft,  comparatively flexible skin.    A good dairy cow -has"a  personality,  which is determined   by  hcr disposition.       In  the   express-ion  of her face much may bo learned. No  matter how good a capacity or how  well     balanced     may be the general  conformation of the "cow, a good disposition  is    necessary  in  order  I hat  sllie   may utilize   all of hei' qualities  to the best advantage.

After having looked carefully into  tho effects which food has on milk,  the British Dairy Farmers' Association has come to the following conclusions:  That when a cow is in full milk  ancl full flesh sho will give hcr normal quality af milk for at least a  limited lime, even though the quality and quantity of food be very deficient.  That when in good condition a  cow will take off hor body whatever  is deficient in food in order to give  hcr normal  quality  of   mill:.  That nn extra supply of nutritious  food nt ull times increases- the quality of milk,- but the percentage of fui  is not in nny way improved by it;  if anything, the tendency being rather lho othor  way.  That an extra supply of nutritious  food almost invariably vcry slightly  increases tho solids, not fat, of the  inilk.  That a ration poor in food ingredients hns a very slight tendency to  reduce the solids, not fat, in the  milk, but has little appreciable effect on  tho  fat.  That with a poor ration a cow in  full weight will lose carcass weight  whilo on a rich diet she will gain  weight.  That although ..the percentage ot  fat in a cow's milk may vary .-.daily,  wo . nt present .'seem unablo to control theso variations or to account  for thcm.  That for limited periods up to  ono month' or thereabout all ordinary quantities and qualities of foods  seem to havo no material effect on  tlio quality of the milk.  That the only food wliich seems  to have had any material effect on  tlio percentage of butter , in tho  milk is an excess of brewirs' grains  That vcry succulent grass has had  only a very trifling effect in altering  the pet cent age of fat.  That most foods convey some flavor to t'hc butter, but scarcely any  of.-thcm will niter its percentage in  the milk.  That some foods exercise a material 'effect in raising the melting  point, of* buttcr.  That thc aim; of all producers of  milk, butter or cheeso Should bo to  feed what will give quantity in  moderate amount and:of a mixed nature, and the produce will be tho  best that   the cow  can give.  That thiv variations in the percentage of fat in o cow's milk are caused by somclr'ng, but what that  something i.s wo at present do not  know, though if wo did we might be  able to influence tho quality.  THE FBBAKSJJF BULLETS  AEMY   SURGEON'S   INTERESTING EXPERIENCE.  Wonderful    X-rays     Have     Saved  Hundred   of  Lives   Already.  It is perfectly true,  I believe,  that  tho Japanese soldier is using a bullet  ADVICE ON MILECING.  Milking is a job that is disliked by  tho majority of farm hands, and a  correspondent offers tho following  suggestions which, if adopted, may  help to make thc task more agreeable First, have the cows in a  comfortable, well ventilated stable.  Keep tho cows and stables clean. Tn  winter cows are kept in tho stable  nearly all the time, but with a little trouble 'they can be reasonably  clean, by moving tho manure back  from tho cows, or covering with"  straw, before she lies down. w'hich  she will usually do after eating.  Use plenty of absorbents,���������horso  manure is good���������whicfii will prevent  cow;* from getting their tails dirty.  IMpe each cow's udder with a cloth,  wrung out of warm water, beforo  milking, Try using vaseline,'or somo  other lubricant���������lard..is- good���������on thc  of smaller calibre than has ever boon  used before in war, said an Army  surgeon to the writer; und it is ho  doubt equally true, as reported, that  Russian soldiers shot clean through  the body wiih one of theso tiny bullets might go on lighting for hours  and scarcely even know that they.  liavo been hit; but when they tell us  that these bullets often leave no  murks of entry or exit���������well, I draw  tho lino there.  Thc modern bullet, is a vcry remarkable thing, and some of its funny ways, which I witnessed in the  Into Amcrico-Spanish War, I should  sot down ns freaks of lhc imagination if I had not seen them wiih my  own eyes. Take this case for example. One man was shot completely  ihrough the body from side to sido  by a Mauser bullet: both' lungs wera  truverajil. but he had no symptom,  not even bleeding, and all that was  visible wns a tiny red spot whero tho  bullet had entered the body _and a  similar tiny spot where it had como  out. This man actually did not  know that h'e had been hit at all.  and if his leg had not been broken  by a second bullet . hc would never  have been in hospital  at all.  No. I scarcely think a man could  survive if he wore shot through lhe  heart; though it Js''conceivable that  he' might if tlie bullet struck. the  heart just a.s it was drawn hard together in its closest contraction; it  tlio heart were on the other beat, and  therefore distended ?.nd softer, it  would probably, be so  lacerated  that  DEATH MUST ENSUE.  I recall one case whero a man was  sliot through iho : breast on the left  cade, the bullet entering about a  quarter of an inch below the nipple  and passing out at the back, shattering the shoulder-blade. , In this case  tho surgeons all agreed that the bullet had passed ihrough the pericardium or covering of the heart;- ond  moro than one declared that thc  heart itself had been penetrated. Oh  yes. the man lived right enough���������indeed, his life was never in any danger.  Talking about freaks of bullets."in  one case I remember the bullet eu-  tercd the left chest, passed through  tho body and out of the abdomen,  then went through the air for a foot ���������  or so and landed iu the right thigh,  about half-way to the knee. In another case' a .man, was wounded in the  shoulder bj, a Mauser bullet, which  ploughed its way around the chest  under thu deep muscles and lodged in  the loft arm, shattering the humerus.  Tliis wns a puz/ler���������a wound in the  right shoulder, but no bullet; the  bone of the left arm broken; but no  wound to bc seen. However, thanks  to the X-rays, the bullet was located  in sixty seconds.  y.'hat hundreds of    lives these -wonderful :rays must have saved already. -  by the    way,    and   what   agonies of   ,  pain!  Instead  bf spending hours,   .it  may be. in probing for a bullet, and  perhaps  never  finding  it.   the- -X-rays  will discover'it for us  with unfailing  accuracy in a few seconds or minutes  ���������the time ranging from five seconds  for a wound  in the hand  to perhaps  a quarter of   an    hour    for a bullet  deeply embedded   in  the  body.  THE MODE11N*  BULLET  is.  as ��������� I have said, a  most remarkable and, "indeed,     an   unaccountable  thing.      If you  fire a  Mauser   bullet:  good woman could lend a husband  from a dark past to si holy futuie,  surely a good inuii might lend a wile.  Hut Ada was only a woman, she  had not had the advantage of healing men of thu World instruct each  other upon' the dilferent code of  ethics proper to each sex, ns I'hilip  had; and having- early 'discovered  that conventional morality i.s for the  lnost part a hybrid, between real  morality and,tho expediency" invented  by nges of male selfishness, tecolVed  to .accept; none .. not: based upon justice and truth. Tiieieforc sho expected Philip to save, to the uttermost thc one human being dependent  upon him. -   ���������  Philip's heart beat strongly when,  after having "taken thc quick overland route, ho; saw thc gray Dover  cliffs rising from the pule sou. In  less than twenty-four hours he would  look again upon 'Jessie's sweet, pathetic-child face. Ho. would be very  gentle with her, would appear to  know , nothing, of those ill-judged  rambles; would place her under some  suitable lady guurdian, far from the  scenes of those idle tales, nnd gently  and gradually win her heart. Never  till then had he felt how closely  Jessie's life was entwined with hia,  or how strong and ineradicable arn  the affections Hint, begin with life itself Iio little suspected thc calamity-that-had long since fallen upon  liim.

It is not a question whet tier Lhe  government shall spend millions in  constructing or acquiring railways.  It is the question whether the government, being already committed to  the expenditure of about a hundred  and seventy millions of doli.'ir.s of public money, in building a railway shall  own the line or give it away.  If the people of Canada pay for the  Transcontinental .Railway they should  own it.

"At a Conservative meeting in North  Sydney recently, among the speakers  was Mr. R. H.

Philip lost uo time niter landing in  Betting    his   face    homeward,  as   Iio  cullod it.      lie step|>cd  out upon  tho  plutform     at  Cleeve  ruilwuy  stutiou  in the uf tcmoon of u cold, clcur Jnn-j  uury  duy,   nnd   was  surprised   not  to j  Bee a  face he recognized  in  the fam-, ,oro,      ,ookI  iliar    place.      ilie   flyman,   on  being i " ������  told  to  drive     to  where it was.  "Sir  Arthdr Medwny's  place  well   Court'.'      Yes,   knows  that.   'Tis  a good nine mile ride and the   roads  heavy," he said.  "Harwell village, farm on the  right.      Drive ns fast a.s you  can."  'i'he streets were silent with thc  dull and ghostly silence of snow, silent but not white, snowy but not  picturesque; town snow is a sorry  spectacle, chill, depressing, suggestive of all the soils and stains incident to poor humanity. Yet thoro  was no sludge, no muddy deliquescence penetrating to tho very marrow  with its chill; the sun was shining,  the white topped roofs were outlined  upon a clear pule sky, the icicled  eaves sparkled as the long spikes  melted and froze and molted and  froze again; the snow was trampled  into yellow-brown powder in tho  roads, on which the horse's feet  struck now and then with a muffled  thud.  The grammar school alone looked  more venerable aud picturesque than  usual, its gray walls tufted with  feathery drifts of unstained snow,  its gabled roof, mullions, and drip  stones traced in white snow-liaes,  its leafless lime-trees showing a tracery of mingled pink end white branches against the freezing sky. Philip  thought of his early battles In the  play-ground, and of that "big brute  Brown," now a peaceful and substantial young tradesman, a good  deal hen-pecked by a fierce little  scrap   of  a  wife. Matthew    Meade  had pinched   to  send  hira;    thero    ut  first. ���������       .  It was scarcely two years since tho  death of Matthew'and Martha; ho  almost expected to see the former  leaning over the half-door of tho mill  when lie passed. The wheel was  still, adorned with jewelry, and luce-  work of icicles sparkling against its  black steps; ice sheets spread from  the banks half over the water, swans  floated in the centre, pigeons wheeled iri the sunshine, but a strange face  looked fromnth'e open half-door, leaning there as Matthew, had leant.  There was} no gold-haired child clinging to his hand. The great willow,  under, whose'}leafy boughs he had lain  and longed to be a man, dropped its  yellow branches over the s'now-cover-  ed grass.  The town passed, the country  spread pure and stainless beneath  the pale blue sky. into which the  rose of sunset was softly stealing.  This White, soft, soundless robe is  a bridal vesture or a shroud, according to the gazer's mood; to  Philip driving too slowly over the  noiseless road, it wa.s a wedding  garment. With every bushed fall of  the horse's feet he drew nearer to  Jessie, to the one being who shared  the memories of youth ami the affections of home with him. How  glad she would be ! Perhaps, after  all. hc ought to have writleu to announce his arrival, but there is  something so attractive in the  thought of coming uhespectedly upon  long absent friends, and surprising  thc warmth of their hearts. A dream  of Jessie's joyous surprise and warm  welcome had floated beiore him for  weeks���������another and brighter, dream,  belonging to the warm country pi"  mystery and marvel- h'e had- left behind, was resolutely banished to a  deep recess of" memory. Some' day  Jessie must bear of it. but not yet.  Perhaps they would each'have something   to   forgive,   but   Jessie's   thrift  reached the village and saw the boys  sliding and snow-bulling on the green  lie jumped down and walked swiftly  on, telling the flyman to follow to  the farm, the chimneys of which were  now  visible  in  the    distance. Tho  woman of the village shop and post-  ollico     looked     after  tho  tall-grown,  man  and     wondered  who he was  "Somebody  for  thc  Court,  I     reckon," she Maid,  turning nway to sell  . bullsoycs to  a  ruddy Ind.  ns she  had  | often served them to Philip, who had  passed many a holiday week at Red-  woods.  Mere was the great elm to the top  of which he had once dared Roger to  climb, and from a limb nf which  Roger had fallen with an appalling  thud, but quite unharmed, to tho  ground. He hastened on, thinking  that this rough, bluff Roger was after all a strange housemate for so  dainty a creature as Jessie. Ills  puce quickened to a run, hurrah!  Thero .was the red light of the sitting-room fire, suddenly leaping up  and streaming over the shining snow-  laden evergreens without, Mike a beacon light to guide him home; Jessie's hand perhaps liad stirred thc  fire to  that leaping blaze.  His hand was on the wicket and he  was ubout to open it, when the red  glow vanished, strangely daunting  him, a hand closed the shutters, he  felt himself shut out in tho chill  gray snow-light, and instcad of entering by the front door went round  through the farm-yard, where the  cows wero pulling hay from racks,  and so in by the kitchen.  "Hullo!" sang out Abraham, who  was stumping heavily in with a  pitchfork in his hand, on feeling Philip's strong grasp on his shoulder,  "who bo you?     What be ye up to?"  They were just in the red glow of  the outer kitchen doorway. Sarah  was busy nt the hearth, breaking  and piling up faggots of furze to boil  a swinging kettle, the dark smoke-  browned walls were lit up by the  dancing blaze. "Lord a mercy!"  Abraham cried, recognizing Philip on  turning, "here's Master I'hilip  Whatever be us  to  do.   Sorrow?"  "Master Philip!" cried ., Sarah,  dropping tho billhook with which sho  was chopping her faggots' and coming  forward. ������ "Why over couldn't you  bide out in India? Whatever be yo  come here for?"  "For Jessie, to bo sure," he replied  giving lier a hearty kiss, "flow arc  they all? You look as sound as a  bell,  Sarah."  ��������� "There", sit down by the fire, do,"  sho replied, hysterically.'at the same  timo pushing him into a wooden  chair. "I 'lows you bc pretty nigh  shrammed'with the coold. Shet the  door, yo girt zote, do," she added,  falling foul of the unlucky Abraham,  who hud remained in. the doorway a.s  if transfixed, with the fork held tri-  dent-wiso in one, hand and his niouth  and eyes wide open. "And Missus '11  be that mad," she added.  Just then Roger came in by another door, and Philip rose to shake  hands witli him, scarcely noticing  that Roger's once ruddy face was j  pale, and tlrnt. he walked with a I  stick. J !  "Glad to see you," Roger said.]  from habit and courtesy, "but what-:  ever's the good.of shutting the door j  she���������dead ?"  thc last word in a raised voice.  "Hullo!" cried Roger, stepping forward and catching him while ho  pushed a chair under him, "Drink,  mother,  give hint drink."  Mrs. Plummer bustled quickly to  the cupboard by the fireplace, whence  slie brought a spirit decanter and a  tumbler, and pouring out a draught  of raw brandy, gavo it  to Philip.  Then the dark-red mist cleared  from his eyes, he looked at Mrs.  Plummcr's black dress, thence to hcr  tearful face, and thence to the troubled fuces of Nat and Roger.  "She was no young," ho said,  "they  were so devoted  to  hcr."  "Sho hud grown up fine and slim,,  poor mnid," added Kat Plummer;  "you'd scarcely have known her  again,   Philip."  "How wns it?" ho asked, choking  something down and* speaking steadily; "how did it happen? Sho wns  always so healthy, never ailed that  1 heard of. Tell me all."  - Ho looked straight beforo him; they  looked  at each' other mutely.  "All's a good deal when all's  said," Mrs. Plummer replied at last,  oracularly; "you've come olT a journey and had a shock, hadn't you better wait till you've taken something?"  "No, no," hc replied, quickly,  "nothing can  matter if she is dead."  "There's   worse   than   death,  Philip  'Mother!"     cried  up.  Roger,  starting  Phil-  '��������� "If you must have.thc worst, Philip,"!,said Mrs. Plummer, "the best  wo can  hopo  is she's dead."  "She ��������� is dead," muttered Roger  through  his clenched  teeth.  . "Thero is a doubt? There was an  accident?" ' asked Philip, trembling  with ho knew not what sickening  horror and remembering his vision of  ���������Tessia months back.  "She's gone, poor child, and wc  hope sho may bo "dead/' continued  Mrs. Plummer, "for thoFe's disgrace  behind. *  "No, no," cried Roger, "it is talk,  Philip, vile talk, and it drove.her bo-  side herself. If any man uses that  word of her," he added, excitedly,  "I knock him down. As sure as fate  1  knock Win down."-  "So  do I,"  echoed  Philip.  "Lord save us!" exclaimed Mrs.  Plummer. "For pity's sake take  Roger away, Plummer."  "Go on out, Roger, and leave it to  mother and me," said his father, laying his hand on the young giant's  shoulder and pushing him to the  door, which he closed and locked upon him.  "Tell me all,'"'Philip said when  ho  was gone.  "To be sure 'tis a hard hearing for  ye, Philip, and a hard telling for  mo," Mrs. Plummor . replied, "and  sorry I am for her, heaven knows.  I acted for the best, I'm sure, and I  never hud any fault to find with her  and never, knew but all was right  tho very day she went off "  "Wont off���������" echoed Philip, staring  blindly beforo hint.  'Wo thought she was gone to Miss  touched  a  tender  placo  in  her scarred body and made her swear.  "Poor Sevastopol," he said, stroking her with more circumspection,  "poor old puss!" Then ho burst into  tears.  (To bo Continued.)   -���������   ���������PERSONAL   POINTERS.  Interesting    Gossip    About   Some  Prominent People.

Jan Kubelik, tho famous violinist,  was only five yenrs old when he was  presented with his first violin. His  father gave him lessons, and at eight  he played in a'concert- at Prague,  and attracted A good deal of notice. At fourteen he played so wonderfully at his final examination that  professors and musical critics wore  unanimous in their praise, and Euro-  pean fame followed in a very short  time.  Sir Edward B. Malet, llritish ex-  Ambassador to Berlin; is an operatic librott ist and dramatic author of  no meat: merit. When acting as  British Minister-Resident at Cuiro  in the days beforo Arabi's rebellion  ho wrote several plays, which were  privately acted both there and afterwards at Berlin on the dainty, bijou  stage which forms one of the attractions of the Embassy. He also  wrote the "book" for Dr. Cowcn's  opera, "Harold," which was produced at Covcnt Garden in 189G.  The Right Rev. Charles John El-  licott, D. I)., Bishop of Gloucester,  is an active tricyclist, notwithstanding the fact that his lordship lias  reached his eighty-fifth year.- He has  only taken to the tliree-wheelor within the last decade, having always  been passionately fond of walking.  Skating nnd mountaineering, too  until quite recent years,; liavo been  amongst' the Bishop's recreations. At  one time, indeed, he was1 the finest  fign re-ska tor anywhere around the  City of Gloucester.  Sir Henry Irving was once chatting  .with,some brother actors about stage  animals, and a certain pony was referred to as having proved an excel-,  lent actor when engaged in a well-  known play. "Why," said a famous  player, as If to prove the fact, "he  used to go on the stage and yawn  all the time I was busy at the footlights." "H'm," said Sir Henry,  slyly; "I don't know about his being  a good actor, but I should say: he  was a good critic."  Lord Kitchener went to ' a small  school; named "Grand-Clos." about  four miles from Montreux. It was  kept by a Rev. Mr. Bennett, and  Kitchener and his twelve schoolfellows-had a very jolly time there. At  fifteen, according to an old master  of his. Kitchener was "of medium  height, broad-chested, a very model  of strength', but not passionately addicted to sports. Solitary in his  habits, not chumming especially with  any of his schoolfellows, h'e worked  quietly and s-tcadily, and proved always amenable to discipline."

A PROSPEEOTJS   BUTCHER    OP,  LONDON   IS   ONE 01" THEM.  Descendants of Royalty Who Havo  Come Down in the  World.  According to a recently published  work on genealogy thero aro 11,723  porsons of British royal blood now  living in Britain und on tho Continent. Most of these persons nro  members of royal or princely houses,  and aro to bo found in tho Almanach  do Gotha, Dobrctt, or Burke's County  Futnilea.  But thero is no Sovereign in Europe who cannot boast of a ntimbor.  of poor relations.  Thero is a chemist in Liverpool  who is descended from tlio Plantagen-  ct kings, und who is cousin, seventeen times removed, of tho Emperor  Francis Joseph of Austria. This1  gentleman is well aware of his descent.  A greater fall from grandeur, still.  Is that of a carpenter, named Ems-  ley, who died not long ngo, near  Portsmouth, England, without being  aware of his kinship witli King Victor Emanuel III.  Thoro is a wholo family of prosperous farmers in Cumberland who can  claim descent from Mary Tudor,  youngest daughter and co-he.ircss of  Henry VII., and in a suburb of Hull  lives the ex-master of a small coast-  steamer, who is descended from  James III. of .Scotland.  London boasts quito a number of  humble "..inhabitants,' who, if about  ten thousand other claimants were  suddenly wiped out, miglit put: in  claims, to  sit  on  THE BRITISH THRONE.  Ono of these, nicknamed "Forty-  Pockets,'-' was somo years ago tho  butt of the Clerkenwell strcot>-boys  owing to his unkingly appearance.  He kept n. small general shop, "and  was often to bo seen running after  his tormentors, armed with a cudgel, whicli, had Fate been kinder,  might have been a  sceptre.  The West Central district of London claims a prosperous butcher of  royal blood, and in one of'tho slums  of Lisson Grove lives a gentleman of  German name and "no settled occupation," who is descended from  James I. of England, through his  daughter Elizabeth, and her husband  Frederick V., Elector Palatine and  King of Bohemia. This gentleman  is also a distant cousin of -the pro-  sent Kaiser.  Descendants of Irish kings aro numberless in tho Emerald Isle, but Ireland also possesses at least two lowly scions of British royalty. One, a  woman named Hammond, wns lately  living neur Wnterford, where sho was  cook to a well-known resident-magistrate.

Unless tlie curtains ore cream colored, the rinsing water should bo  slightly blued, and they should bo  thoroughly stirred about in it.

I Wns a measly idiot  -dial's what I waa.  I was walking up tlie Strand, on  my way to Piccadilly, ono Thursday  a'tcrnoon a few months ago, when  tlie incident I nm������,aUout to rolato occurred. To tell' tlio truth. 1 was  going to meet Miss Hollibone, tho  head of tho haberdashery at Folr-  liam und Smith's; and I was just in  the HN������Ulle of a calculation ns to  how losg it would bo before sho and  I could bo married and settle in a  ehep of our own, when a white-  haired gentleman with a pleasant  faco ran Into my arms.  "1 beg your pardon!" ho said. And  then hc started back. "Why, bless  my soul!/" ho cried. "What an ox-  trnoidinary thing!"  He stood staring at mo in such  evident amw^einient that my curiosity-  was aroused.  "What is an extraordinary thing?"  I asked.  "The likeness,"     Ho said.     "Would  ycu min-d telling me your" name?*'  "Sampson       Banks,"     I     replied;  "though! "  "At  last!"   Ho     murmured.     "'And  your father's name was "'  I assumed tho freezing stare which  I found answered vory well when customers brought goods back.  "I am not in the habit of discussing my late fat'her with strangers in  tho street,"  I said.  Nevertheless," said he, "I think  you will find it to your advantage  this time. But you arc right; the  streot is no place to discuss an affair like this. Como up to my  chambers."  Ho walked on, and led the way to  a big block of buildings in Chancery  Lane, which* seemed to consist mostly  of dust and stone stairs; and though  I kept my eyes open for possible  tricks, the elderly gent's manner had  so impressed me that I followed liim  into a little, nicely furnished room  on the third floor.  "Now," he said, seating himself at  a desik, "we can talk comfortably.  What was it you said your father's  name was?" "  "Georgo Banks," said I; "but���������������������������"  He held up a fat white Hand.  "And. your  mother's   namct���������before  she was married,, I mean?"  - ''Amelia Tomkins,"   I  replied. -  He drew out a little bundle of  blue, legal-looking documents from  the drawer of his desk.  "Both your���������ahl���������parent?, I take it,  aro no  longer  living?"   he said.  "That, is'" so,"  I replied.  "And did they never tell you  who  you really were?"  "There wasn't any need," said_ I.  "I knew."      c-  "Worthy people," He said. "How  well they carried out their trust!  Now, look here, Mr. Banks, the  story I am about to tell you is a  very extraordinary one, but, at the  same time, it is strictly true. Those  good peoplo wore not your parents  at all, and since they did not inform you as to your real identity, it  becomes my pleasant duty to do so.  As a matter of fact, you ara���������the  Duke of Broadlands!"  I felt every vestige of breath oote  out of my body. Had anyone struck  me in the face, I could not have been  more astounded.  He saw I was speechless and went  on:  "'The story is a somiewhat long ono  in detail, but put briefly it comes to  this: The fifth Duke of Broadlands  was supposed to have died a bachelor, and when he died the estate  passed to his nephew, as a matter of  course. Bmt. hy a series of circumstances, which I.will not go into, it  came to my knowledge that the fifth  duke had been secretly married, and-  that a son had been -born to him*.  His wife���������your ' mothJeiJ���������However',  was'in'a Humble walk of life, and  when she died he took a dislike to  you���������his5���������son-^nd���������had���������you-plaoeii  with some excellent people by tho  name of Sampson. They never knew  the real facts of the case, and they  were well paid to keep silence as l������>  what they did know; and thi old  duke died without ever even seeing  his son. or in any wny attempting  to do him justice. You, my dear  sir,  were that son."  "But," I stammered, "how do you  know nil  this?"  "1 got my first suspicion from tlio  likeness you bear to the old . duke.  It is simply remarkable. And, my  dear bir���������I mean, your Gr.icc���������I make  bold to say thnt, witli my help,  within three months you will find  yourself in enjoyment of your rightful position in life."  And then he went into the matter  of heirs male of the body, hoirs-at-  law, and a Wnolc lot of other legal  rigmaroles, which I could scarcely  follow, backing up every j.tatcmient  he made wilh blue documents and  parchments as long as my arm, and  covered with wheresoevors and  whereases.  I did not attempt to follow mucli  of this. Tiie principal thing that  concerned mo was that he seemed  convinced that what he called my  claim was protty well sure to be established beforo long. Of course, I  left thc nratt'T entirely in his hands,  nnd just as I was leaving ho warned  me solemnly to keep tlio whole matter to  myself.  I passed my word,   and after  ranging a futuro appointment   I  tho office like a man dazed.  Well, at any rate, I moist try and  keep my head, and -bear in mind  what Mr. Maxtead���������for that was the  elderly gentleman's name,���������had. said  about keeping the think dark. So  ran my thoughts as I walked towards Charing Cross, and then���������tho  first' thing I did was to givo the  whole thing u way. I Had forgotten  all about Miss Hollibone, and as I  now came face to faco with lier I  could seo sho was in a red-hot temper.    ���������''  A nice timn you've kept mo waiting!"  slie snid.  That sort of greeting was certainly not so respectful as I now hod a  right to expect.  I have been detained," I said  loftily, "by some business of tho  highest  imjvortanee."  "Fiddlesticks!" slie said. "Highest  importance, indeed! The only business that could detain yon would be  in tho shop, and I saw you leave  there two hours ago. Business of  tho highest importance! Who with,  I should like to  know?"  She needed crushing.���������I could seo  thnt.  "I havo been engaged with my solicitor,"  I  said  coldly.  "Now, look here, Sampson Bamks,"  she said softly, "you're not talking  to a girl fresh from tho Board-  sch'ool. If you've mot Sarah Maitland, or any of the othor girls, say  so; but don't try to make a tool of  mo witli any of your hlgh'-faluting  nonsense, because,���������louder���������"I won't  stand it!"  She took a good deal of crushing,  but I was determined "to do it.  "Mndam," I said, "perhaps when  you learn 1 have just discovered myself to bo a duke you will moderate  your tone somewhat."  She took a step back, and looked  at mo as if sho were suddenly frightened. The murder was out now. I  had broken my word, and so I told  hcr the wliolo story.  Mhen I had finished, she burst out  laughing. Then I let my temper got  the better of mo, and I said somo  bitter things.  ���������"I shauld havo thought," I fiivished  up, "tliat a person of your class  would have boen proud to be the acquaintance of thc rightful owner of  one of England's proudest and most  ancient  titles."  "Person,- indeed!" she snapped.  "Acquaintance! I suppose, then,  that since you've dreamed this absurd tale I'm not good enough for  you���������eh?"  "Circumstances Havo changed,"  said I. "You must remember that I  owo something to my family."  She looked me straight-in tho eye  for .a. moment, and'than she swung  round.  "Good-afternoon, your Grace!" she  said javcr her shoulder, arid disappeared into the traffic.  In order to keep' my word to Mr.  Maxtead, I stuck- to Feltham and  Smith's as long as I could; but Agatha Hollibone mado ���������herself as unpleasant as sih'e could. Slie spread  the tale all over the shop. . Every  time I turned round -I- caught someone laughing at" me, and that made  me bad-tempered*.  A bad-temper is the worst thing  a shopwalker can have, and very  soon that brought me into personal  conflict with Mr. Feltham. Of course,  I, a scion of one of Britain's proudest families, could not stand being  bullied by a mere lincndYaper, nnd  the long and short of it was that I  found myself out in the street, with  tlie last month's money I sHould over  get from Feltham and Smith's in my  pocket.  To tell tho truth I was rather  glad. I could now give my undivided attention to prosecuting my  claim personally. The three months  mei.tioned b.v Mr. Maxtead were  nearly up. 1 had received several  very promising letters from him, and  so, after r.ll, 1 had only anticipated  events a little.  Tho next morning I went up to  Mr. Maxtead's Chancery Lane  chambers to tell him what had happened. There was a'clerk there, and  Ko asked mo to be - good , enough to  step info a little .waiting-room  which giive'on to the private office.".  "'Mr. Maxtead has no.t "yet arrived,  your.

It would really seem as though  every one were waiting for our slices.  When I was nt Wei-Hai-Wci a short  time ago thero was a strong suspicion that thu British government,  desperately anxious to got rid of tho  place, over the acquisition of wK"-ch  there was such a fanfare a lrttle  while ngo, wero actuully going to allow Germany to add it to her possesions in Shantung. At all events,  when I was thero  A GERMAN CRUISER '  was in the place, and hcr oifiicers, as  usual, were entertained amd shown  over everything they cared to examine. When thoy were leaving after  thoir few days' stay they were asked  if tliey were going to repeat tho  visit. "No," replied the German  commander; "wo shall not pay a  visit next time. When wc como  again it will be to take it over from  you."  The British government have already put up "Houso to Lot" at  Wei-Hai-'Wei, and it is one of tho  first holdings. belonging to the poor  old "Setting Sun" which tho Germans will enideavor to acquire. It  would immensely strengthen tlieir posilion at ICaio-chiuu, and their hold  over the province of Shantung. In  German hunds it would become the  Gibraltar of tho Gulf of Pechili. I  got into Port Arthur and out again  before the war commenced. I was  able to examine the town, barracks  and dock yard. There wero somo  (splendid palatial buildings in tho  former, including a magnificent cathedra], all - of wliich I hoar have  been more or less destroyed by Togo.;  The barracks also .wore quite tho  best I Had ever seen, possessing dining-rooms entirely separate from tho  sleeping quarters.

And  besides: these the Japanese have arranged extra facilities on some of  tlio islands since they obtained undisputed supremacy nt sea.  Tlio more ono sees of the Japanese  afloat anil ashore, ono cannot help  longing that Great Britain were ablo  to boast of similar ull-round efficiency, not to say determination; for  it is this pre-eminent quality in the  nntion, and tlio government standing  behind tho fighting men. wliieli helps  to render tho latter so formidable. I  lcaineil from a Japanese friend the  story of thc first attack on Port Arthur, a story in vcry truth of a  government which knew its own  mind acted accordingly witli circumspection nnd resolution.  As soon ns over the dio was cast  th'o .Tnpnnoso fleet left Saseho, whilo  the Japanese consul at Chefoo went  into Port Arthur to bring off his  countrymen, and, together with his  servant, a naval o,flicor in disguise,  to liavo v  A FINAL LOOK AROUND.  When they left, the Russian fleet had  taken up its fatal position in thc  roadstead outside. They steamed in  the direction of Chefoo, but instead  of making thut place stood eastward  and met tho Jajwneso fleet under Admiral Togo at sea, when they at  onco described the formation and posilion of tho Russian squadron, and  a few Hours later it was caught and  scattered by tlio Japanese destroyers.  As a soldier I liave, naturally,  been more struck by tlio Japanese  military movements which 1 have  been able to witness. I was in  Chemulpo at the time of th'o destruction of the Variag and the Ivorict-z,  and witnessed the really ^wonderful  disembarkation and departure of a  Japanese 'division for the front. As  soon as tlio Japanese transports arrived on that fateful evening the  long sea front assumed a quiet, sustained activity whicli betokened the  absence of any necessity for improvisation. Even landing-stages projecting into the shallow waters of  the liny made their apj>earanco as if  by magic, to whicli tlie sordpans  brought tlieir endless loads of men.  horses and guns. These streamed  away into the town to pre-ordained  billets with an uncanny precision  which suggested that f.omebody'  somewhere was tunning a handle and  working the whole business by machinery.  What ono particularly noticed was  that with' it all there was no shouting of orders or galloping about of  fussy staff offficers, as there would  havo been in any other army. Tlie  Japanese officer seems to liave learned a strange, silent method of leadership, whose marked feature is an  absolute confidence in  himself.  No-tilling before or sinco 1ms ever  impressed mo so much" as tliat night  in Chemulpo. _-The Japanese division  was in tawn, there .was no doubt of  j it;" bdt - not oven a bugle broke the  comparative quiet of tlio place. I  explored the streets to see what liad  become of  THESE UNUSUAL SOLDIERS.  I found them in the shadows of ver-  andahs, within tho shelter of gardens  and compounds, resting or cooking  their food by little tires that -.-wero  flickering in numberless different directions. They seemed to have no  use for' orderlies or staff officers, for  ovoryt-h'ing seemed to be ready, prepared and complete. Of if any passed to ami fro ihey seemed as noiseless as the very shadows in which'  they moved.  t I watched the soldiers cook their  suppers, eat them, and go to sleep  all in tlie same stillness, and I did  not quit this fascinating scene until  an early hour of the morning, when  a new wonder encountered mc in thc  departure of this silent host. I passed w'here a whole battalion had  Livounckcd. It was quite dark. The  wind of'tlie morning was blowing,  cold, but not a streak of dawn had  appeared. Tliere was not a sign of  any one awaiting" them, but suddenly  there was n-stirring among thc dark  masses of- recumbent figures, and in a  moment or two .every section moved  to its piled arnvs, unpilod them,  formed fours, and, without a word,  tlio^wholo'baltallon^moved-ofl^n^thc"  sumo weired silence, like ghosts, into tho darkness and tlie unknown;  whither none could guess, and no  ono ventured into tho black waste of  snow-covered country beyond to 'discover. Wo learned since that most  went north, some by the nwful Korean country over hill, and bog, and  drcm* inlermiiiublo mud wastes to  Ping-Yung, and some by transport  again to Chinumpo. But it was a  lesson lo a British soldier in a scale  of efficiency which had never entered  inlo his purview before. There was  a sense of omnipotent aird masterful  simplicity about it all, and as theso  soldiers enme nnd went uitli their  strange precision nnd working with'  an unerring and remorseless certainty never previously attained in tho  history of wnr.

Gtve an Opportunity to Contract*  ors to Plunder the Gov-  eroment.  When the Trans-Siberian Railway  was laid down the Russian authorities hud in view the possibilities of  a war in the Far East on a big  scale, writes A. G. Hales. But I do  not think that, in those days, they  thought of a war with Jupan. They]  looked, and they look even now, upon China as the really dangerous  Asiatic power. They know that th'o  long-sleeping giant is stirring in his  slumber, and that when he awakes  tho Western world will do well to bo  awake, too. But Ru&sia's statesmen  looked upon that danger as a thing  afar off, and when they built this  railway they did not pay that attention to detail that tliey should have  dono.  It i.s a notable piece of work, taking it altogether���������a piece of work of  which any country in the universe)  might well lie proud. Two great  steel arms, stretching all tho way.  from St. Petersburg to tlie Yellow"  Sea; two steel arms that take in  their embraces the far-rcachiDg forests, the rushing rivers, the rugged  mountains, and  THE FERTILE PLAINS.  But there are many spots along its  mighty plain where the hand of tho  jobber and the knave can bc plainly traced. I lia\e read much con-  corning the tyranny of C/arism, and  havo heard much of it from heroic  travellers, whose wealth of courage  and entcrpi ise has taken tbem all the  way into the wilds of Clapham, or  into the dangerous wildernesses ot  Peckham. But this I know; If such  knavery as is in spots c\ 'danced on  tho Siberian Railway had been perpetrated in other lands, something ot  a- serious nature would have happened to the contractors. I am not defending Cznrism, being born a democrat, and hoping to die ono. I havo  therefore no leanings that way. Tho  Czar may. be a despot, and his alleged Government may be the worst  in the world; but, io many things,  life goes on much the same under his  rule as in allegedly free countries.  Why, some of that railway, from St.  Petersburg to Port Arthur, might  easily Havo been built by Australian  contractors, the method is so similar  at spots.  CHANCE FOR CONTRACTORS.

In scores of places I saw the engineer,  and their gangs of workmen busy, ^  straightening out those curves; and  if those folk who think'"Russia is  nearly beaten in the present war Had  seen the Russians calmly reconstructing their great railway I think  they would bc less sure of Russia's  ultimate defeat.

"Bill you really?" said the sweet  girl. "And whatever did you do  with them all?"  The captain went red, and his eyas  dilated.  "Threw them overboard," he said  shortly.  "Fancy!" she said. "Now, do  you Know, T always understood that  you captains made the poor dear  bailors untie all those knots the  next dny?"  Then the skipper hurried away with  a groan, plunging his head in a pail  of cool water, and kicked the cabin-  boy mightily.  symproms she described were  conflict*  ing and confuting.  "It's vcry strange," said lho phy������  dcinn.  "It you do not understand tho case  wo must get someone who docs,"-  suid the mother.  ���������So, after a week or more of experimenting, another physician wai called  in.  "A trifling Indisposition," snid tho  soqond physician. "I'll have her  all right  in a dny or so."  But in a day or so she had hira  pu/./!ed. Her lover had told her  how to do  it.  "Every time 1 see her," said th'o  Fccond physician, "tliere scorns' to be  some new complication. I can't find  anytTiing rcdically wrong, .bu.t her  statements ceitainly stiow that alio  is  not  all   right."  By this time the father nnd mother were worried, and they sent  for a specialist. The latter looked  wise, but he met with no greater  success than the two Who Had preceded him, although' his bill was  considerably larger.  Thc father had just seen tlie bill  when  thc girl  called to him.  "I fear." she said, wearily, "that  this trouble is going to continue indefinitely. Don't you think it would  bc uise to have a physician in the  family?"  The father   looked    at    her sutfpi-  ciou<0v.  "reihaps it would." he admitted.  "And   it'������  so    easy  to  have one,"  slie pcrsitteif.  '���������Arrange it to sniit yourself," he  said, resignedly, for he was a man  who  knew  when  he wa.s beaten.  Thc next day she was able to sit  up. and the day cAtcr sho had entirely recovered. But tlie father,  continued to look at her reproachfully, even up to the day of the wedding. ra  !i?

Beggar Prince Opera Company  When the British Columbia and Alberta theatre "managers organized  themselves into a circuit combination  it was mainly with the intention of  protecting thcir.patrons against impositions, and enlisting aconfidence that  will insnie patronage to tlie deserving  companion. Mr. W. Cranston, the  manager of the opera house at Nelson,  was appointed secretary and manager  of the new combination because of his  long experience in the theatrical business. That this arrangement is a  happy one is already perceptibly, for  theie.has been an absence of "fake"  shows, and a. healthy increase in the  better class productions so far this  season.  Mr. Cranston is now announcing an  opera company, which is undoubtedly  the most pretentious theatrical venture ever offered in this part of Canada. The organization is F. A. Wade's  famous Beggar Prince Opera Company, and in addition to the personal  guarantee of our local manager, it has  the endorsement of twelve years successful standing in the. United States.
