Once upon n time tlioro was a good  king who had no children of his own,  but who 'hud four nephews, named  Geoffrey, Oito, Eustace, nml lluberi.  Those nenlicws llic king greatly loved  and as each up|K\'irod to Im equally  worthy he wa.s at a Ios& which to  choose as his successor, so, leaving  his palace, he Went nwny to the  heart of a vast Wood, au<l, entering  ti small temple, ho ascended seven  marble stejis, plated a magic rim;  upon th'e nllnr, tinn stood wiih  bowed head and outstretched urms  waiting   the result.  Instantly there stood before him a  majestic figure twelve foot high. "Whal  would thu great king with the tlenii  of .Solitude?" asked  tlio figure.  "Thy   wise     counsel,"   rcplioil      llio j  king,  and lie told  him of 'his diilicul  ty.  wiser than 1 would show ma th'o  right, for Hiircly tho right spending  of gold requires tho highest widsoni."  Tnsttiiitly thoro stood beforo him  Genii of Solitude.  "Oli. Trince," snid th'o Genii, "bot-  catise thou hast s])okon tho truth",  and cried in earnestness of heart, I  am your servant."  So liie Clenii helped I-rbicc Hubert  spend his gold, and t'ho month camo  lo an ond, and tlio four brothers returned to court. With Geoffrey camo  a great band of trained warriors,  chiii in costly uniforms; but wlien tho  good king saw them lie shook his  head, saying, "Geoffrey nin.v not bo  king; they would take all tli.i wealth  of the land in Raging wars on defenceless naUons, and peace would  never Iio  in the hind."  When Prince Otto, travel-stained  aud shabby, with nothing to show,  stood before him, hu suid, "Not for  you i.s tlte crown, oli, Otlo. for t'hc  land would be for pleasure seekers  und itlln impostors only," for well  the king knew Iliat Prince Otto's  money Hud gone lo food, not llio  really destitute, but those who would  not work.  Then camo Prince Eustace, bringing  '^"*i*-i--i������*-i*^**ii*"4-*4**&**4**fr**'''^^  Tigep and Bicycle.  with liim his crowd of peasant Is, each  Without  hesitation    tlio  Genii    told] of whom  hnd  managed   to  pick up a  him what to tlo. Then the king went  back to his prtluce, ami gave orders  for his nephews lo be invited to the  grandest state banquet over .seen; so  ���������th'at although the young princes liad  many times seen tlie magnificent palace built of marble, cedar, ebony,  and silver, and knew its treasures of  pictures, statuary and priceless worKs  of art, yet when thoy beheld tho  tables laden with' massive gold plate  sot wilh gems, and sow the groat  and heartfelt homngo paid to tbo  good king, tliey were amazed, and  each secretly longed to lie chosen successor.  At th'o close of the banquet the  king bade his nephews an affectionate  good-night, and conwna ailed thoir  attendance early in the niorning on  a matter of great importance. Tliat  night the princes slept but little, for  they doubted not the lime had como  when the king's choice would be made  known*  Consequently, thoy wero n little  disappointed when, on tho morrow,  their uncle, taking four bags ot gold,  with* thc snmo amount in each", gave  one to each nephew, nnd bade tliom  journey into tlie world for one.  moral;, and spend thi- money exactly  how tliey pleased. At the end of the  month' they were to return and givo  faithful account of their adventures.  In somo surprise tlie four princes  'departed, but they had not gono far  beforo they began lo clilTor as to the  way in which they should spend the  money. -  At this point Geoffrey said, "Here  aro four cross roa'ds; let us each" take  -one, and spend ������������������tho gold ns wc list."  So they parted company. Now  Geoffrey had not gone far before he  met Count Ulric, a former comrade,  who  now    appeared    in  rich  uniform  'uii*d-   t;ii*t. with., n. ..SWOIT-I. ... ...When .h'o...  heard t'ho story of the bags of gold  lie said, "Depend upon it, tlio King  mnde it a tost of fitness. I will show  you how to spend it so th'at his  kingdom may bo extended, and yourself covered with glory." Ho tlien  told of his own warlike advent'tires.  in which hc hnd found a rich land  over thc seas inhabited by a gentle,  peace-loving people, who knew nothing of the arts of war. He nlso  told of strong, warlike men ready  to figlit for gold, who, under tlio  command of Geoffrey, would march  awuy antl conquer this land. This  so fired the imagination of Prince  Geoffrey that hc went with Count  Ubic and spent his gold and time in  training warlike bands.  In the ineantrnio Prince Otto went  on his way merrily; determined to go  to a gay city where other young  prince.-;, former friends of liis, now  lived. Wlien ho had found them and  told them of his bag of gold, they  were delighted, for, with a laugh Ko  said that nothing was easier thau  the spending of money, nnd he meant  to have a good time in viewing all  that was best in beauty, art, and  song, for tho king, his -uncle, loved  these things, and would like to hear  of them.  .So day and night for a whole week  Prince Otto nnd liis friends spent  much gold on pleasures, which in  ���������thems*rlve3-^were-not,"Wrong.=^0**.e clay^  thero came to the prince a beggar in  r.-ics. who in a whining voico told a  tale of poverty. Remembering that  his uncle was ever gooil to the poor.  Prince Otlo took a handful oi gold  from hi.** bag and gave it to the  bescsar.  ThM next day came another beggar, who in a still more whining  voico told a yet morc pi toons tale.  Tn bim Prince Otto gave two hand-  fuls of gold. Now, what, with costly  pleasures, and reckless giving, Princo  Otto found hi.s bag quite empty at  the  end   of  two   weeks.  Wh'*:i Prince Eustace l?;'t his -brothers h.* journeyed quietly on for somo  "Kstnn-e until hc met a grave atid  loained man. who whin ho bad hrtrd  t'iie story of liis hng of gold. said,  "Come with mc. iny son. and I uill  show you a. colony of simple peoplo;  lot your gold bo spent in teaching  thoin tho wonders of science and the  truths of philosophy, for Wisdom i.s  before  nil   things."  So Prince Eustace bought nn old  castle, antl turned it into a college.  Much moro gold he spent in paying  learned men to teach' tho simple peasants of tlint happy valley. At first  those neasants refused lo como into  tho college, because the time of their  fruit harvest was nt hand, but whon  tlioy saw the fine college nml all th'e  b'-aetiful grounds surrounding it,  th'*-*v wont in anil forgot, thoir orchards   laden  with   fruit.  Now when Prince Hubert loft his  brothers, lie journeyed on in deep  thong-lit, tutning not aside for any  temptation. So anxious was ho to  d"o tho rigiit thing, that at thn end  of a week he had not spent a single  gold piece. I'n sore perplexity ho  entered a littlo temple sot in tho  heart of a silent wood, and wliich  wns no oilier than the Temple of .Solitude. Standing before tho altar,  ho    cried.    earneMly,    "O,   that      ono  little of tho language of learning.  Here again  thc king shook his head.  "Tlieso peasants," saltl lie, "but  for you would havo gathered and sold  th'eir fruit harvest, so tliat winter  would have brought no want. As  it was, tho fruit rotted on tlio  ground, sending out so foul an odor  tliat one, inhaling it, look a plague  back to n groat city, which plague  spread  so thot many died."  Lastly camo Princo Hubert, and  knelt before the king". Then tlic  king said, "You shall be my successor, for gold is good in thine hands."  and hc told how tho gold had been  divided into font* parts. To raise  brave men to fight for tlio weak in  defence, of tho kingdom. To buy  seeds for tliose who would work on  tlio land nnd were loo poor to buy.  Tn bringing aid to those who had  fallen sick of the plague, and in  teaching many people liow to do the  thing they wero most clover at. Thus  was Prince Hubert clioson Icing.  BRITISH PRISON REFORM.  New  Two years ago wo woro travelling  in the Malaysian islands, Sumatra  and .lava, writes .1. H. Ilosny. When  going clown tho river Danj-oro-Assini,  which flows among enormous forests,  wo landed ono evening at the settlement of Nlouwenhiiys. About a  dozen Dutch colonists livo there,  with the entire population of Malays  and Chinese in thoir surviso. Wo  met with generous hospitality in  the house of Mynheer V'andcr Ouvc-  Junilt.  Tho following morning, while our  host was in t|)o fields, I rose and,  having taken a cup of tea, wont  strolling about tho dwelling. My  attention was attracted by a magnificent bicycle standing in a shed. At  tho sight of tho machine I wns seized with a wild desire to try it.  At first I resisted; than I took out  tho wheel and mounted, determined  to confmo myself to a short ride.  A good road loci from tho dwelling  house and into the fields; tho bicycle  wns perfect, and tho intoxication of  tho ride became irresistible. Suro of  permission from, our amiable host  I was soon speeding across tho rico  and coffeo fields at a rapid pace.  Before long I was at tho outskirts  of tho 'forest. Bewitched by tho  marvellous beauty of the spot, I dismounted from the wheel in order to  enjoy tho imposing scenery to tho  full. '     .       '  A littlo lake shadowed by overhanging branches seemed tho imago  of poaco, and, seating myself on a  granilo rock, I was soon lost in contemplation.  Whilo I was sitting thus thoro was  a crackling in the bushes. Something both heavy and light-footed  was making its way to the edge of  the woods. My heart stood still  when I turned to see what it was.  About thirty feet from tho rock a  powerful tiger issued from the shadow.       It    wns a    giant among    its  I thought I was saved, when an -tm-  forscen circumstance comrplotoly  changed tlie situation.  At tlio entrance to a grove of banana trees a leafy branch', probably  thrown thoro by somo laborer, barred  tho way. As thoro was no possibility  of evading it, I ran ovor the obstacle  but unfortunately it caused tho wheel  to swerve, and I was obliged to slow  up for a few yards in order to regain  my equilibrium.

Five years ago a lieutenant of Marines, named Cube, visited the church ia which aro preserved the relics of St. Itarbe, and was  given by tho Pope a silver ring  which touched the relics. Tho Pope  charged him nover to part with the  ring, us it would bring him good  luck. When tbo war broke out tho  lieutenant was mado nido-do-enmp to  thc Grand Duko Cyril, and on Easter Day, wishing to give his chief a  present, ho could think of nothing  better than the ring. The Grand  Duko objected that he ought not to  part with his charm, but tho lieutenant insisted, and so tho Grand  Duko accepted the gift. Soon afterwards, when thoy were both on  board thc'Petropavlovsk,- the ship  blow up and the lieutenant was killed,  but the Grand Duko, escaped.

There are so many varieties of  fashionable sleeves that there is no  sot rule for one to follow in'making  them this year. The shirred or kulied effect is entile as smart as the  plain bishop pattern, which, according to" somo chroniclers of the  modes, has boon disappearing for the  last two years; ami the mutton log  in modified forms bids fair to reign  supremo before tho passing of many  moro months. As a matter of fact,  all .the variations and heights of sartorial fancy are scaled from thc  foundation of tho bishc"p or mutton  log models.  For shirt waists and bodices for  general wear there is scarcely any  perceptible chango in._tho._.i"-oaoiii,-  sloovcs 'a'n'd" those "which bave been  worn for tho past' two seasons. Tn  fancy waists, and house drosses, reception gowns, etc., tho widest latitude is allowed in the construction  of one's sleeves.  Fow effects are more popular than  tho elbow sleeve for all dross occasions. Their return to favor is  marked by a furore, which shows  none of tho humility'of uncertain  fashions. They ��������� give a chance to  show off one's pretty arms, which  cvet'3' woman ought to possess in  theso days of physicnl culture and  daily instructions in massage  papers.  THE  OLD  SHAWL.  Fortunate is tho woman whose attic shelters a grandmother's chest,  provided the chest harbors in turn a  handsome old embroidered shawl  such as grandmother used to wear.  If ono has the heart to cut it up,  nothing, makes a more charming  waist. Not satisfied with tho beautiful design of tho embroidery, many  modistes arc combining the richest  laces with those shawl-bodices, making a confection lit for a queen's  adornment.  A NEW GOWN.

But tho Russian admiral is not a  popularity huntor.

In a lecture read  during his terin. of oflice at St. Petersburg ho declared that tho navy,  with reserves should attack boldly,1  not fearing destruction, if a chance  presented Itself of badly, damaging  tho  enemy's, ships.  For this reason ho is a strong upholder of the big battleship.

Rojestvonskj*' sailors are said to  call him tho "Silent "Admiral," owing to his tnciturnity. Tho Admiral  is not a' talke?,- but a worker; - and  part of his unpopularity is duo to  the self-reliance with which he carries out^ important changes without  consulting subordinates.  Evor since his appointment last  April to tho command of tho Baltic  Squadron, he has been nt war with  the St. Petersburg naval, authorities; and Russians declared thnt. ho  threatened to resign more than onco  if the fleet was not fitted out as ho  required.  In person, tho Admiral is good-  looking, and ho has a prominent  wart on his noso-.which attracts attention at once. Tho restrained expression, steely ej-es, and tightly-  closed mouth hidden under a grim,  grizzled beard, give him an appearance of power and resolution. liis  only recreation is sailing boats, and  reading and writing of tho soa.

The revelatTbW  havc arisen tlirough a native cm-  ployed on the Reunion Estate, a sugar plantation a few miles from Durban, boing convicted of stealing  some tins of preserved beef from thn  estate. It wus stated in evidence  that after the war the Reunion Kstate had obtained from the military  no fewer than two hundred and fifty  thousand cases of "condemned" tinned provisions, which thej- got merely for tho carting awaj-. Tho cases  had been opened and tho tins buried  in the canolielcls, with the object of  utilizing the contents as manure for  the sugar-cane and it was some of  these tins which had been exhumed  bj- tho natives ancl consumed.  From further inquiries it appears  that enormous quantities of so-called  "condemned" Iood supplies - were  disposed of by the .military author!-'  ties. It is alleged that numbers of  natives have been living on this stuff  for months, nnd it is significant that  so far, no ill effects have como to  light. Indeed, they assert tho contents of tho . tins nro in perfectly,  sound condition.  As to the value, at a very moderate estimate tho Reunion lot alono  must havo cost not less than half a  million sterling, and whon it is considered that vast quantities of similar foodstuffs, were burned or ta!*''ti  out to sea and cast away, while  other sugar estates have followed  tho Reunion's example by utilizing  them for manuro, somo idea tuny bo  gathered of the enormous wastage  which occurred in this ono department alone.

But suddenly     the  ' crowd    made    one of  the periodical  ', rushes,    and     the    girl  was   thrown  :*against him.  He looked    down   carelessly,    thon  seeing it was a  woman he put   out  \: one hand,  and,  as  if  ho were    contending with a feather pillow,    kept  .bnck the man. who was crowding her  I'and with tho other drew her in front  ! of him. ,  ^ In doing so he held hcr a moment.

She might have resisted hia words  and gone off, still resentful, but the  smile was irresistible.  "Givo mo your hand, and���������and  don't touch mo, please," she said In  a breath.  Something, a sudden gentleness of  appeal in hor last words, attracted  his attention, and hc just raised his  hat before he hold out his hand with  tho gesturo a gentleman would accord a lady.  The fire died out of tho girl's ej'os,  and with drooping head she murmured her prophecy hurriedly.  Ho caught only a word hero and  there, and his attention strayed  back iti a moment or two to the  suddenness of the exclamation.  "Fair play!" he . said, as if he  were speaking to himself, his eyes  fixed on the wrestlers.  Tho big man had thrown his opponent onco, and had seized him for  another bout, getting "hold" of  him, as it is called, foully. There  was a great deal of excitement' in  tho crowd around the platform and  several of the spectators, hearing  the  had one of those clear, bell-like  voices which are warranted to penetrate tho thickest din���������joined in,  and cries of "No, not Fair play !  Give him another hold I" roso from  all sides.  Tho wrestlers stopped, the small  man panting, the big one scowling  dowu upon tho upturned faces.  "What's the matter?" he demanded  sullenlj', lumbering up to the edge  of the platform. "Who says I ain't  plaj'ing fair? If anj* of you thinks  you know more about wrestling than  I do, he'd bettor stop up hero and  teach me." Ho "looked around the  crowd fiercely, and his small eyes  rested on tho young man's upturned  face.  "Perhaps this young gentleman  'ull step up and kindly givo mc a  lesson. Long Bill is alius ready to  learn."  T'ho young man smiled, and Hong  Bill, like a bull enraged by a rod  cloth,  scowled  back  af him.  "He don't scorn to fancy it," he  said, his huge mouth' twisted into  a sneer. "Likes shouting better,  don't yer, sir? Well, just mind yer  own business, will yor?"  ���������The young man laughed.  "All right keep your temper, mj'  man," he said good-humoredly. "All  I want is fair play for the little  one. Go nt it again, but give him  time to get hold.  "Keep your orders for them as  wants them," was the retort. "I  don't" wrestle with him again���������nor  nobody, come to that," and he went  for his coat, hanging on the ropes.  "Oh, go on, go on!" shouted the  crowd, regretting their chivalry.  "Go on!" m  But he shook his head, and was  shuffling on his waistcoat when tho  j-oung man called out as pleasantly  as before :  "Wait a moment! I don't want to  spoil thc sport. I'll have a bout  with you!" and bo took oil his coat  in a leisurely way.  Tho girl had stood looking from  one to the othor, silently, and almost indifferently, observant of all  that was Jgoing on, but at this  point an instantaneous change came  over hor face, and almost unconsciously her hand clasped the young  mnn's arm.  He looked down at the hand as it  lay, brown as a Hindoo's, but  small and shapely, on tho whito  shirt-sleeve, ^and^theiuatJiei-face 1J===i~  "Hallo!" he said banteringly and  with some surprise, for the face was  full of fear and anxiety.

Don't  go!"  Ho laughed, and patted the small  brown hand.  "It's all right," he replied.  "Don't  you bo afraid: he won't hurt me."  T      Sho  snid  no  morc,  but  took     hcr  hand  away swiftly and  drew     bnck.  But only a fow yards.  Having finished his peeling leisurely, tho crowd made a lano for htm,  and he sprang upon thc platform.  As the two men faced each other a  murmur of admiration and satisfaction roso from tho crowd.  They were two splendid specimens  of humanity���������one huge, muscular as  a bull, tho other slim, supple as a  ligor, and j-ot with tho firm, wiry  muscles of the trained athlete. Ilo-  slriu the tremendous bulk of thn professional the young man looked rather spare and slight, and Long Bill  eyed him up and down with what  was meant for a supercilious stare.  As thoy stood regarding each  other, Undo Jako limped up to the  girl, whoso largo eyes, diluted, woro  fixed on the two.  "V'ho's that?" hc asked sharply.  "It's a gentleman, hint it? Who is  he, ch?"  The girl without removing her  gaze, shook hor head, and drew  away from him.  The eyes of thc two men suddenly  grew sharp and intent; they approached each other, shook hands,  stood chest to chest, then got hold,  and tho struggle began. In loss than  a minuto it was seen that, the young  man who had dared the champion of  the district knew the rules of tlio  game, and that Long Bill had not  got a "soft thing." They gripped  each other, swayed, pressed, and  tugged, tho muscles standing out on  their arms like strained steel.

Long  Bill got up and looked around with  an air of surprise which provoked a  loud burst of laughter from the  spectators.

I  on by the fever of its own mad do-  sire.  One summer evening some years  ago, a train roared out of Cleeve  station and ovor this bridge at low  speed, bearing in one of its carriages  a general oflicer in full dress returning from a. review, a beautiful dark-  cved woman    with rich, black    hair ,       ,     ,     ,  .,,.. .  highly silvered, a lad of fifteen, and  ^^__Zf J^^^.^J^^.f01^  a girl of eleven.   The latter, having  tossed off" her own gala hat, was  crowning hcr brown curls with the  white-plumed cocked hat that lay on  the scat beside her, her brother had  taken the unbuckled swordbelt and  was drawing thc sword slowly from  its sheath, and feeling its edge.  "Thore is the mill, Ada," tho general was saying, "see the man leaning over the half-door. One might  think it _was31atthew himself/'  ifo saw it all as'in the days of his  happy, wholesome boyhood. Matthew and Martha and sunny-haired  Jessie were moving about a.s of old.  Thoy were never long out of his  thoughts, and at times were vory  near to him, living on beyond thu  bounds of sense and time in that  eternity which ib all round and  about us.  Thc train passed into the blue distance, ruthlessly straight rushing us  tho democracy it typifies, the mill-  wheel hummed on us of old, dashing  the water in diamonds from its turning stair. Strangers dWclt in the  mill-house, other children watched  and wondered at the rolling wheel,  and the mystery of the inexhaustible water, which flows on forever  and nover lessons.  So all things chango and renew  themselves, there is no death", only  eternity. The water flows to the  great sea which covers ihe earth, it  rises on the wings of the sunbeam,  rides gloriously over'the heavens in  cloud, masses colored by purple sunset, descends in rich rains and fragrant dews, and so on again, in end-  lessm etamorphosis. We, too, have  our time to rejoice and sorrow, to  love and fear, to doubt and struggle,  to bloom and fade.' But though  generation succeeds generation and  the same willows hear the whispering of lovers and see their children  and children's children, and the race  is perpetually renewed in its eternal  round, there is a difference. Unlike  the water, man has a choice between  blessing und cursing, he does not  pass and "leave not a wrack behind" but a mark and a memory.  For each separate man, as well as  the whole race, moves onward,  though often with many a backfall,  to one "far-oil divine event" " with  a ,*:ertaiii power for a certain season  to retard or advance the grand final  consummation.

Watch for thoso variations and note why they aro so, seeing if valuable, accurate conclu,sion5  cannot be drawn.  rilEPAKATION OF TIIE LAND  amef thc distance of planting must  bo directed by climate, condition of  soil nnd surrounding circumstances.  I believe the virgin timber land best  in every way. Cutting this timber  in Au-just and September, burning up  all tlie brush' in October and November, plowing tho land in December  and January, whero conditions will  permit, and cross-plowing again in  March and April, are tho best courses to pursue. It pays to prepare the  land well where trees are to be jilanted, especially where th'oy are to  will be many a year  before th'at p.art is plowed again. 'All  trees should be * carefully selected.  Three-year-old trees, B feet high", with  an even spread of at least seven to  nine branches at right angles from  the body, nnd a centre stem as a  leader, are in my opinion best. Whole  or piece root, long or short root,  has nothing to do with the vigor,  life, Health or productiveness of the  tree. It all depends on tho kind of  stock and scion used. Double working is often a great advantage. Digging, handling and planting are  matters not considered sulfllciently.  Most of our planters forget that  trees begin to die ns soon as they  are out of tho ground, and it is only  a rpiestion of time before tliey wither  or succumb. If they aro taken up  carefully, without bruising either  roots or tops, and intelligently plan-  tod, not morc than 1 ver cent, should  bc lost. '  Wooden trco wrappers are put on  our trees iust as soon ns they are  planted. These wrappers 'are made  18 inches long, 10 inches wide and  1$ inches thick. They are put on  with' two wires. So. 20 annealed, fastened' through tbo wrospipcr so they  will .slip down. Tliose wrappers aro  worth all they cost for tlio protection  of the body of tlie tree during the  first     summer     in    the   increase     of  grolirtU   l*������*.r.**l"ivl-*--   Thcy-pfty   tor- -LWoiio-  selves in keeping out tho flat' and  round headed borers.- Tliey protect  the bodies of the trees from injury  during cultivation and pay for themselves aifourth' time in r-rotecting the  trees from rabbits. Th'eir cost is  aliout 64 per 1,000. They arc left on  the trees for three years- without any  injury resulting. Got out of your  trees nil you can as quickly as possible, and when they fail to pay, cut  them down and liavo others coming  into bearing to take their places.  Tliis is the quickest, e.-uriest a-oH most  profitable plan  to imirsue.  Cowpeas or clover is used as summer fallow and often rye is soivn  aa o. caver crop in the fall, to bc  plowed' up th"e next spring and the  grourtd sowed to cowpeas. Further  care of the orchurd aftor bearing will  be a repetition of last year's work  before liearing. notation of crops is  essential. Our succession is corn,  cowpeas, summer fallow, and clover  two years, repeating this every five  years. Prune little or much each"  year, according to th'e place th'e orchard is located. Tn the south ajiri  west there i.s very little pruning. Bet^  ter too little than too much*.

Resemblance      to    Criminals    Has  Entailed Suffering  on Innocent People.  The most historic cxaRiijie of mistaken identity was furnished by the  famous Lyons (Franco) mail robbery  ense. in which a man cnllixT I*sur-  I'lii'.s was charged with robbing and  iiiMi'dcring the courier of thc mail.  Ixsurijucs was identified in the most  posit iv.> mutuier by all who had wit-  n������*.*-*?ed the crime as th'e man who hud  done the deed, and was .sentenced to  death, lie died solemnly protesting  his innocence nnd nuUiing an appeal  to the real criminal to clear his  memory from so foul n stain. Four  years.later the wretch for whom h'e  had died was caught, and was-found  to bear the most striking likeness to  Lesurques. lie was convicted and  guillotined; but many a long year  elapsed before full Justice was done  to his victim's innocence and tho  fortelied property was restored to  his  family.  In another case u man was cliarged  at the Old Bailey, London, with being an escaped convict. The governor of the gaol and a numoor of  wairlcrs swore that he was without  doubt thc criminal' they had had under th'eir charge, and his conviction  seemed certain. Fortunately it was  recalled that the convict Had  A WEN* ON HIS LEFT HAND,  of which r.o trace was visible on the  Hand of the prisoner; and a doctor  who chanced to be in court went into the box and declared that it was  impossible to have removed the wen  without leaving some trace of it,  thus making it absolutely certain  that the prisoner cotdd not bo the  man who was wanted.  A Scottish' court some years ago  witnessed a curious trial which had  a romantic sequel. A farmer's son  ! was charged witK night-poaching,  and, although he set up an alibi,  was convicted on the evidence of a  keeper and otlior witnesses who  swore to h'is identity with the poacher. Not long nfter t?ie real culprit  was arrested and confessed his gujlt  too late, however, to save the innocent youth from punishment. Tho  latter liad already served his term of  imjM-isonment and had emigrated to  the Cape, where lie amassed a large  fortune. On his return to Scotland  the owner of thc estate on which he  bad been charged with poaching  made what amends he could by begging him to shoot over it for the  rest of his days.  A respectable Scottish mcrcliant  called Henderson owed Hi.s escape  from death to a ciyious accident'. TTo  was charged with forging an acceptance signed by the Duchess of Gordon; witness after witness swore that  Uiey hao" seen mm "sign  A SIMILAR DOCUMENT,  and one man declared that the very  signature in qmestion had been written by Henderson before witnesses in  his own house. In vain did the prisoner's counsel plead his irreproachable character and his straightfoi*-  ward demeanour during the trial. His  guilt was considered by all in court  to be established. The judge*?, however, delayed their decision until the  ensuing session, and to this delay  Henderson undoubtedly owed his lifo.  During the recess the Lord Advocate paid a visit to a Mr. Rose, of  Kilravock, wh"o took him to inspect  a house which was being built for  him. Mr. Rose noticed that one of  th'e carpenters wns missing, and was  told by t'he foreman that the man  had absconded on hearing th'at the  Lord Advocate wns coming, and,  furtlier, t-out h'e believed h'e had been  mixed up in some forging case. This  statement, repeated to tho Lord advocate, roused his suspicions; tlie fugitive' was followed and arrested, and -  ultimately* admitted that it was he  who Had, with the assistance of a  iMrs. Maclood, committed the forgery,  and  for  the purpose  had  personated  of Bticces-sful  apple .growers.   j   W.rilKLE.S.S  TELEGKAPfiy.

While tho Uenedict sometimes has  to pay dearly for a wife, in at least  one country it scarcely pays to remain celibate. In Argentina the man  who prefers single to duplicated bliss  has to pay a substantion and progressive tax. If he has not taken  a wife by the time he reaches his  twenty-fifth birthday he mu,st pay a  fine of SO.25 a month to the Exchequer; if at thirty-live he has not seen  tlic error of his ways thc fine is increased to $11!.50 a month", ���������mil at  this figure it remains for fifteen  years.

Of courso,  thla vlow has boaa of mothers as a,  class. There are, ulns! pitiful oxcop-  tlons���������women who do not admit the  responsibilities ot motherhood, nnd  women who dare not demand the  right3 which motherhood gives them.  Buch women present problems which  cannot be doalt with horo.

Is it not possiblo for such  women to show that womanliness doas  not mean weakness���������ihat the very life  oi all lives tho moat womanly nocda  for ita right living not goodness only,  but wisdom, knowledge and freedom?  On the other hand, ought thoy not to  demonstrate.that In this womanliness  essentially, in tho clinging to it and  emphasizing it, they will gain a peculiar power wliich nothing else can  givo? It is surely a strength and freo-  dom, not to bo loft behind in the  march onward to new strength and  new freedom. It is a. quality which,  must bo cultivated and emphasized  In thiB "new era." It is an emotional  superiority,' a God-given esssneo,  which he cannot afford to lose, in our  now grasp upon tho Intellectual forcea  within ua. If every intelligent mother  in this land could bring herself to an  accurate realization of the power for  broad yet conservative advancement  which lies merely ln her position in  ths plan of society���������what aa immeili-  ato uplifting of womankind there  would be! And beyond this, too,  reaching away off into tho future, is  the Influence ehe exerts upon, her children, and through thorn upon an ever-  widening circle.

'A' most charming little ring "arid "iri-,  teresting littlo curio in the world is  'the property of Mr. Temple, of London.  ���������This gentleman is a nephew of the cel-  tbrated' Sir Richard Temple,-aud'���������*��������� the  Ting is a highly prized old family heir-  Joom. Its history *is-pathetic and romantic in the extreme. ' ii'j  "        :';:  Inside of this tiny circle of gold are  the works of a perfect little music box.  iYou touch a spring and hbid the ring  quite close to your ear. Then you hear  the .sweetest, weirdest, tiniest little  tune, which seems like a voice from  (spirit land.  This ring was once ia the possession  of one of Mr. Temple's ancestors, who  Jived in France. He was a: stanch  sroyalist, and in the days of the Revolution he valiantly espoused;the cause  of the unfortunate Louis and .his lovely, doomed queen, "Marie "Antoinette.  ���������He was arrested,. thrown' into 'Jail,  Where he lingered for days and'weeks.  One of his few pleasures.'[ih the  tgloomy solitude of his :dreary dungeon  .was to listen to the voice or tune of  the little musical ring, which he al-.  iways wore on .the third finger of his  left hand. .He. hail inherited ft from  bis grandfather, who had it manufactured ln Genoa r.t great cost.  One. day, sullen faced men, heavily  ^firmed, eame^to his dark dungeon and  "~t61'a~hln'rh'e'"riiust���������f61!ow=the'm:-=iiHi!*=  knew that this .meant the guillotine.  He stepped bravely out lo meet his  fate determined to die like an English  gentleman and a brave man. And he  did.  A strange fancy took possession of  liim Just before Ihey led hlni to ,tho  block. He touched the spring of his  little ring and lovingly held It to his  ear. It sang its little tune merrily and  ���������briskly.  Then the slgnnl came. He laid hla  "head on the guillotine which a fow  hours before had known tho life blood  of a queen.  In the course of timo the little ring  found its way back into the Templo  family, but it was silent. Its present  owner took it to a London jeweller,  ���������who found in tho musical meehan ism  a clot ot blood that for years had lain  there and impeded the working of tho  -machinery.  This was removed and the little ring  Bings again the same little tune that  "beguiled the many sad hours of its'  ���������former owner.  Not lllllci������B ICnoiip-li Toi- All.

"Well the buyer said lie. was, v.:ry  grateful and all that und went out and  put in some of his bast licks. Ho got  tho increased salary for two weeks and  signed a receipt for it.

"Most persons are protty familiar  l>y tliis timo wilh appendicitis, which  has come to l-a regarded as  to aillicl almost any one between  twenty and filly years oi age, and to  have escaped which is to bo peculiarly fortunate. It is known thnt it  begins wiili severe colic and tenderness in the right side of tho abdomen, and a sensible person does not  suffer long from an attack of that  sort   without calling in  tho doctor.  This is well, and no doubt^fthe increased general knowledge regarding  appendicitis and the wklc-.-iprcud fear  of the disease have saved many lives  by leading those attacked to* seek  medical advice promptly while thc  inflamination is yet in ils incipient  stage. Hut thi.s is true of adults  only, and it seems to be believed by  those who give a thought to the]  subject that children do not havo I  appendicitis. This is an error, and [  one that may possibly have most  ecrious consequences.  Children, oven babies, may have inflammation of the vermiform appendix, and may die of it as promptly  as older persons. Fortunately, however, the disease is often less severe  in the very young than in adults,  and a fatal case of the disease in a  child is comparatively rare. But  although the child may recover from  his attack, the appendix is left more  vulnerable, and many an apparently  primary attack in adult life is really  a recrudescence of a sJtinibcring inflammation dating back to childhood.  Not every stomach-ache in a child  is appendicitis, but any ono may be,  and parents should not be made indifferent to these attacks by their  frequency. Neither should the attacks excite too great apprehension.  Jf the danger-signals are known, and  FOR NELSONS CENTENARY  GKEAT BRITISH   EMPIRE  CELEBRATION".  A Million Shillings    to  *be Raised  ���������Souvenirs   for the Subscribers.  Of all tho names on England's roll  of fame none stands higher in tho  likely popular estimation than that of  Nelson; and tho centenary of his  death which fulls to be commemorated next year will undoubtedly  evoke a strong outburst of admiration for the great naval hero, of  whom Tennyson sang :  Thine Island     loves  thee well,    thou  famous man,  The greatest sailor since  the    world  began.  To mark the o-.-casion the directors  of the llritish and Foreign Sailors'  Society  have  resolved  to  appeal    to  SHE WAS IM BED  FOR THREE YEARS  PAIN-RACKED   WOMAN    CURED  BY DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS.

There has existed in Japan for  many centuries u curious law to tho  eiT*e:t that whenever the Emperor or  Empress appeared in public no other  person should seem to occupy a  higher place than this member of  tho Royal family; therefore on such  occasions  the shutters  of  all    upper  will never bo fully "known. It is only  when.some courageous woman breaks  tlio secrecy tliat covers woman and  h'er troubles that a passing glimiisn  of th'eir great work is given. For  this renson a statement ma-tie by  Mrs. Jus. Hughes, of tliis place, is  of moro Until passing intetest.  "I was a great sufferer for four  the English-speaking public through-[years," says Mrs. Hughes, ���������'! was  out tho world for assistance in raising not less than a one million  shilling memorial fund, which Mr.  John Cory, president ot tho society,  will inaugurate with a gift of live  thousand shillings.

Many of tho old naval ships havo  necessarily been broken up, and  many persons feared 1I.M.S. Victory,  after hcr recent accident, would follow her un/ortunnto consorts; but  the King is credited with having  commanded that she should be preserved as the one floating monument  of the heroic past. Tho Lords Commissioners of tho Admiralty gave  to the abovo society the wholo of  the old material taken from H.M.S.  Victory. The society has also  cured the whole of the remaining  copper, weighing several tons, left  from Nelson's flagship, thc Foudroy-  ant, wrecked in 1837, and will thcrc-  ��������� treated" by live doctors and a specialist from the U.

An ordinary stomach-ache lasts but  a short lime; the pain i.s general all  over .the abdomen, or perhaps most  marked on tho left side, and tho attack often passes oil with a slight  diarrhoea, usually without fever.  When Uie appendix is the seat of the  trouble,  the pain may subside for a  some million Nelson Victory souvenirs to the boys and girls of the  Empire.  The Royal Albert Hall is secured,  and other suitable centres will bo  taken both in India, the colonies, as  well as in- the British Isles, for a  great Nelson celebration, at which  the presentations will bo made simultaneously on October 2.1, 1905.

Coldness of feet and limbs is almost invariable an evidence of indi-  - gestion. Tlie coldness is due not to  weakness of the heart or fceblness  of circulation, as is generally supposed, but to the contraction of the  ���������small arteries, preventing blood  from entering the parts. There is  -generally an irritation of the abdominal sympathetic nerve centers  which control the circulation of the  lower extremities. This difficulty is  not to bo removed by exercise' or  by any special applicalion to the  liiubs, but by removal of the causes  of irritation. This may be a prolapsed stomach or chronic indigestion. Hot and cold foot baths arc  valuable. Those act, not simply  on the feet and limbs, but by reflex  on Uie feet and limbs, but by  abdominal sympathetic centers, which  nro in  a  diseased  condition.  Hubbiug of the feet and legs i.s also an excellent method of overcoming spasm of the blood vessels,  thus preserving the normal circulation. Tlic rubbing should bc from  .iho feet towards the body. Tho surface should be well lubricated with  ���������vaseline. To avoid irritation of tho  -iliin care should also be taken to  __elot'nr*__thc   limbs.very.warmly.

All this on the authority of tho  immortal Zadkiol, whose almanac is  just issued in London.  The Czar, in particular, is to havo  a bad year of it. '"There is no encouragement" to anticipate "a turn  in the tide of war" in his favor. "In  fact, the best, course would be to  evacuate Manchuria and make terms  of peace with Japan."  Then, again, thc position of Mars  indicates great personal danger to  this unfortunate ruler "if he should  venture into jx foreign country; also  a family bereavement. From September to the end of 1005 tho Czar  will not bo free from danger."  The Kaiser, too, may look out for  squalls, for in March Saturn  "plagues the ruler of Russia and  Kaiser Wilhelm.".*:.'.

The most  wide awake man is   Albert Hcrpin of Trenton, New Jersey,  lie never sleeps.  Not for ten years has Herpin wooed tired nature's sweet restorer; not  for a decade has he drifted off into  dreamland and become oblivious to  everything.   ���������  Yet Hcrpin is a healthy, happy  man, who enjoys life, and far from  being a sufferer from his protracted  siege of insomnia, he says that ho  really feels that he needs no sleep.  Herpin's caso has few parallels in  medical annals. It has always been  accepted that no human being can  survive without occasional - periods  of sleep in which the nerves can be  calmed and the tissues restored.  Yet Hcrpin gvies right along, a  living defiance of this basic principle  of medical science. He is no__mtiseuni  rieaic nor - i.Ua.via.xctuT ���������-i-Jo"lias refused liberal offers to exhibit himself in  public or to yield himself to physicians for scientific experiments.  Mr. Herpin-s story of his long period of sleeplessness is more interesting    than      any account  of  it     that  could    be    unfolded by other observ  ors.  "I think overwork first robbed me  of the power to sleep," he says.  "Twelve years ago I began a series  of experiments to photograph on  china and to stipple half tones on  steel. Tn the course of this work  my yeai and enthusiasm frequcntly  kept me going night and day without a thought of rest.  "Tho first thing I knew I had  reached the point when I could not  sleep at all.  "I became worried and feared that  some permanent ill must result. But  doctors and medicines failed, utterly  to put me to sleep. I consulted  specialists, still with tho sumo result. Then I began to notice that  the loss of sleep was not hurting me  a bit. My appetite was good, norvos  under control, I could work just as  hard, and my weight gradually increased until I tipped the beam at  180  pounds.  " 'What's the use ot sleeping at  all?' I said to myself, and so gavo  up  the attempt.  "From that day to this, ten years  ago,_I_havo_novoi'_slopt,_and__I_ never  expect to again, f go to bed nightly at 1.0 o'clock and remain there  until 5, fully conscious all the time,  and yot never dropping off for so  much as a wink.

Heaven   help   the  person     who  liad meddled witli her calf then!   She  liot for liim.   It  was both amusing and touching     to  soo  the  two  together.

On tlio contrary, special  thought     must   be given   to  each'   would have made it  floor covering,  whether oiled,  polished  or  carpeted.

Many people prefer linoleum,  because  of its springy quality,  and  its durability.    When lineolouan is usod,  how-  over, tho best quality is sure to pay,  oven  before  the  proivcrbial  en'd,     because  tlio    colors  will   retain     their  linos far longer than  tlie cheaper varieties.     A  plain  linooleum     is     not  infrequently used,   but  in  tliis case a  coat of varnish is usually given.   When  anything    is spilled  upon  a  floor  of  hard wood it can bo wiped or brushed  up nt once.       Cover grease spots  on  wood  or stone wilh  flour, starch  or  powdered  chalk,   which   will     absorb the grease.     Cold  water poured  upon  grease as  soon as  it  is spilled  will harden  it;  tlie greater part may  then bc    scraped oil".       lii'fore begin- j  ning to  sweep," see  tliat no  food     is  say, the ruling sign of Russia, thali  is Aquarius, happens to fall in the  'Seventh'- House' at tlie same time.
