The following is a verbatim report  oE Mi*. Taylor's addiess in reply to tho  speech from tlio throne:  Mv. Speaker.���������  It must be a source of great satisfaction to them all to know that for  the flrst time in twenty-five yeais the  revenue of tho province showed a surplus over and above the expenditure.  Looking at this matter from a superficial view they probably would not be  inclined to grant the full  measure of  rt ,_  thai.ks, appreciation and justice to  the government which it deserved, for  this had been done in the face, of most  adverse conditions. The industries of  tho province were in n very unstable  condition, ^he credit of the province  was all but gone through and by conditions and reasons for which the  present government was in no way  responsible, and in face of all these  difficulties the government had restored the confidence of financiers and encouraged investment in our industries.  Indeed they could feel that* they were  well launched on the most prosperous  etu*tliat the, province ever experienced.  When they considered, too, that the  legacy left by former governments of  an annual deficit of, from one-half to  three-quarters of a million had to be  overcome, they must, on due and just  consideration;'' give' tbe government  the'lrighesfc praise'for their strong'nrid  businesslike administration of affairs.  In order, to produce these results,  sacrifices had to be made by individual  taxpayers, and'he was'glad to say  that, realizing the gravity of the situation ���������and ,having unbounded'confidence in our resource?!',tlio," people,  with' but few exceptions, and little  complaint, willingly met their responsibilities.  Complaints had been heard, but invariably this howl ofv agony and blue  ruin came not from the individual nor  the industries affected, but from the  Liberal press of the country," and invariably, too, without authority or  justification, and often in the form of  the "giossest misrepresentation and  deliberate deception. It ill becomes  the opposition press to perpetrate a  campaign of abuse, misrepresentation  and condemnation of the government  for their increase in taxation, .because  upon investigation, as was clearly  shown by the report entitled ''The  Case of British Columbia for. Better  Terms," the increase in taxation had  been brought about thiough the refusal of the Federal government to  grant tho simple and even-handed  justice th.it our case merited. ,  The direct taxation paid into thc  Dominion exchequer fiom this province .amounted List year lo almost  $3,000,01)0. while the total direct taxation accruing to the province from  dilferent son.ees amounted to about  $750,000, or, in other word*, for evcry  $1 paid into the treasury of this pro-  "vinoe"$ t"- wVis-paid���������into���������the -Federal  treasuiy. Every man, woman and  child in the province was actually  paying into the Dominion exchequer  yearly in excise and customs duties no  less tlian $13 per head. And yet they  wove told by the gentleman supposed  to Iip the guiding star of Liberalism  for Brill.**.' Columbia at Ottawa that  the first installment of Better Terms  must come when the Liberals carried  the province. If that, gentleman's  advice were cariied out iiiiLit.li Columbia must wait many years for the  consideialion of the question of Better  Terms.  Referring again to the question of  taxation, he rental ked that the question of taxation was one of tbe most  serious and perplexing which presented itself to any government. This  was cleaily demonstrated through the  fact that all, or practically all, of our  sister provinces and neighboi ing states  of the union had appointed commissions, some of them extending over  many years, for the exclusive purpose  of devising the most satiffactory and  equitable form of taxation. Many  and diverse were the opinions and reports of these., dilferent commissions,  and still the question remained one of  the problems of tbe futuro.  With the object of making, the Assessment Act as equitable as possible  a commission wa.s appointed a short  lime since for the purpose of looking  into the question, and although the  goveinment had failed to satisfy their  friends opposite in the personnel of  tbe commission, or even as to the. time  and place in which it was held, still he  trusted when tbe report' was presented to tlie House and considered by the  government, if any inequalities were  found to esist they would be speedily  rectified.  The question of_ the financial relations of this Province with the Dominion was not by any means a new  one. The matter'had been time and  attain introduced to the Federal authorities,   both   by   delegation   and by  A Quick Recovery.  "NewYouk, Feb. 20.���������Munroo and  Munroo  havo   broken  thu record on  Wall street for quickset lleinont.

MINERS ARE  ENTOMBED  Sad Death of Mrs; J. Woodrow  ' It was with feelings ,of deep regret  that the many friends-of Jlr. Wood-  row, learnt of the doath of his wife  on Monday morning last. The sad  occurrence, coming so suddenly, cast  a gloom over all who knew the deceased, with whom she was very  popular. A grief stricken husband  and two little children are left to  mourn her loss, aud the sincerest  sympathy of all goep out toward them  in their sad hoiu-jof affliction.  The funeral took place yesterday  afternoon from the family residence  to the cemetery. ." Hev'. C. A. Procunier conducted tbe burial service.  A large number of citizens followed  the remains to thei&Jasl vesting place,  as did also the inombers of tho Independent Order of Oddfellows, of  which Order Mr. Woodrow is a valued  member. Messrs.. F. B. Wells, A. J.  Stone, W. M. Brown; Chas. Abraham-  son, H.. Cooke, and H. N.

C.  and the west, have practically settled  all the difficulties between "the men  and the'company. The principal bone  of contention among the ranks of the  telegraphers was. night operators not  being paid for Sunday work, which  they,h.ivo now obtained, and they are  on au .equal looting with day operators. .I'he s'i_tUemutit"h.is been'biised  on stations nVwhich*. conditions have  materially changed and the .increase  of pay, will probably total up 5 per  cent.\ 'V  C.

Ottawa, Feb. 20.���������It is undei'stooil  that the Autonomy Bill, wliich is to bo  introduced on Tuesday by Sir Wilfrid  Laurier, has been framed with the best  harmony from all sides. Whatever  views' he may propose later. Piemier  Haultain has, up to the present, lent  an unselfish and helping hand to the  preparation of the bill.  Briefly summed up the important  clauses are as follows, although when  brought befoio the house numerous  changes are anticipated. '  The school system is unchanged.  Regina   and   Kdrnonton are provisional capitals and   the- legislatures of  the new  provinces aie to make permanent capitals.     -       . j.  The Dominion will uot make tho  capitals permanent. -' -  <,  The provinces are named Alberta  and Saskatchewan. The name Assina-  boia is to be preserved as the name of  a Dominion constituency.  Each province will get ten members  in the com uions, and from 21 to 20  members in the legislature.  Premier   Haultain   desired  30,  but     ,  tbe general view prevailed.   Increased  Commons representation will be given  at the next election.-    ..  * All   lands  are to be retained by the  Dominion, but a liberal cash equivalent is made   iu  the same, while the    -  usual   subsidy,   SOc.   a  liead,  will bo  more   liberal   than   iu any other pro-    -  vince, according   to   population' estimates. ���������   * ,  Tlie dividing lin'e_ urns north and  south, probably at the 110th meridian.   .

First rub thc skin well with  salt and lay each Joint aside, then  begin ovei- again, and into the fleshy  Bide of each ham rub two tcaspoor.i-  Juls of saltpeter and a tablespoonful  of brown sugar mixed together. Rub  the popper, particularly, about the  hock and under the bono and give to  tho whole ham a good application of  salt. Now pack the hams, one upon  another, the skin si-do downward,  with a layer of salt between, into a  tub or box tho bottom of which has  been covered with salt. Tho process  of salting will be complete in livo  weeks.  At tlie end of that time have ready  about a peck of hickory ashes; clean  the hams with a brush or dry cloth  and rub them with tho ashes. To  smoko the hams the joints should be  hung from joists beneath tho ceiling  and a slow, smothered lire kept up  fpr five or six weeks, so as to smoko  thoroughly, but not overheat the  hams, Wrap   each  ham  in heavy  paper, a-nd enclose it in a canvas or  coarse cotton bag, and hang in a  c*ol,   dry  place.  Many like a pickle containing molasses or sugar. Make as follows:���������  To four quarts of fine salt and two  ounces of pulverized saltpeter add  enough molasses to mako a paste.  Hang the hams in a cool dry place  for three or four fays after cutting  up; then cover with the pickle mixture; thickest on the flesh side, and  laj^them skia side down for three or  four days. For 100 pounds of ham  make brine in the following proportions: Seven pounds coarse salt; two  ounces saltpeter; one-half ounce pear-  lash; four gallons soft water. Heat  gradually, removing all scum as it  rises, then cool. Pack tho hams in a  barrel, pour the brine over them,  and keep in pickle five to eight weeks  according  to  size.  Another recipe which omits the  rubbing requires, for 100.pounds of  pork take 10 pounds of salt, two  and a quarter pounds of brown sugar, two ounces of pepper, two'  ounces of a soda, two ounces of saltpeter, and water enough to make a  brine that will float, an egg. Pack  .meat in barrel. Boil and skim the  brine oi sediment. -When cool, cover  the meat with the brine. Weight it  down, and be sure it is all covered.  Add the popper afler skimming. Let  it remain iri brine, four or five weeks  are not entirely removed repeat tho  process. We know of nothing morc  effective.  In fall and winter a housowork-  er often has great difficulty in keeping her hands soft and whito. Unless some soothing lotion is used,  they will surely become chapped, especially if one does any heavy housework. A good lotion is made of  two parts of roscwater, two parts of  glycerine and one part of citric acid.  This rule has been usod for years by  a woman whoso hands are always  soft and white, though sho has  charge of a largo farm and does a  groat deal of kitchen work. But  for this mixture, which sho uses  every night, slio says that hcr hands  would be rough and coarse. Vaseline is, of course, good for chapped  hands, but care must bc taken that  it is not rubbed on the lips, for it  will produce superfluous hair. Cold  cream, too, it is said, will do this,  and should therefore bo used with  caution.  If coffee, tea and cholatc spots  on table linens are treated immc-  iately with boiling water, they will  almost always como out completely,  unless tho water is from an artesian  well. The linen should bo placed  over a. bowl, and tho water poured  thVough it till the stain disappears.  Stains that have become set, should  be spread with a mixture of egg  yolk and glycerine, and exposed to  bright  sunlight.   ��������� . .

Since 1 took up my resideiice in the  capital 1 have ridden hundreds of  iniles through its universally clean  streets, from Ueno Park to Shinng-  awa, and from the Botanical Garden  to the river, und I think I am woll  within the limit of moderation when  I sny that there are ten bookstores  in Tokio for every ono that can bo  found  in  St.   Petersburg.  JAPANESE SCHOOLS.  School children of both sexes are  quite as much in evidence at bookstores, and at certain hours of tho  day one cannot ride or walk threo  blocks in any part of tho city without meeting boys in the visored caps  and girls in thc maroon-colored Occidental skirts of thc Japanese student world; while on holidays long  processions of younger children from  the primary schools marcli through  the streets, singing as they go, on  their way to somo excursion suburb  or picnic ground. If ono had no  other material for tho formation of a  judgment than that afforded by the  bookstores and school schildren of  Tokio and St. Petersburg, one Would  naturally and inevitably conclude  that, in educational facilities, at  least, Japan is far in afvancc of  Russia.  MONEY FOR EDUCATION.  But there is other and more con-  closivc material foi- a comparison of  tho two countries in the matter of  culture. Official statistics show that  Russia has at school only 4,484,594  pupils, or about 25-per cent.-'of her  children of school age, whilo Japan  has under instruction 5,351,502 pupils, or 92 per cent, of her children  of school ago. .Russia, with a yearly national revenue of about $2,-  000,000,000, spends for ���������primary education something less than S12,-  000,000, or 8 cents per capita of her  whole population; while Japan, with  only one-eighth of Russia's revenue,  spends for tho samo purpose nearly  ?10,000,000, or 34 cents por capita  of. hcr whole population. Russia's  military expenditure bears to her  primary school expenditure the ratio  of nearly IS to 1, whilo Japan's dis-  buresenients for military purposes  bear to her primary school  expenditure the ratio of less than A  to 1.  STUDIES    COMPARED.  So far as the practical utility of  the instruction given is concerned,  Japan is far in advance of Bussia.  Tn Japan thc course of study for  primary schools of tho first and second grade, comprises reading, writing, arithmetic, geography, Japanese  history, elementary science, drawing, singing, gymnastics. . and' for  the girls, "sewing.

They have never gone much  on finely wrought theories in any  branch of philosophy, political or  otherwise; nor has it over been easy  to work -many of them up to a pitch  savage and barbarous nation, to  adhere to Sjivaroff's rule of no quarter.' In our war with Japan wo  arc liko a man attacked by a viper.  It is not enough to frighten it and  leave it to hide in a bush, it must  be destroyed, and we must do this  without considering whether England  and tho cosmopolitan plutocracy object or not. To burden Russia  with thousands of Japanese prisoners, spreading dysentery, typhus,  and cholera among the Russian people, would, perhaps, be in accordance with humanitarian principles,  but it would be very unwise. No  quarter and no prisoners should be  our motto."  HER    CONFIDENCE  RESTORED.  Fortunate   Discovery   .of    a    Sus-  ?.  picious Wife.  Sho was a commercial traveller's  wifo, and she had hoard many stories about the "doings" of travelling  men on the rond. Hcr husband always seemed a model, but���������why did  ho always leave his bag at the office  when he returned from a trip? Sho  had not seen that bag moro than  once in two yours. Thc other day,  when he was on a trip, his suspicious little wife visited tho oflice.  Approaching the porter,  she said:���������  "John,  you like to  make a dollar  when you can, don't you?"  ' '"Oh, j-es'm."  "You know where my husband  keeps his bag,  don't you?"  "Yes'm, he throws it down in a  corner an'  leaves  it there.'*'  "Well, look here, John.

Treaty Which. Prevento Passage   of  Warships.  Numbers of people havo boon asking tho last few days, "Why is thoro  troublo about Russia wanting to  send 'lior Black Sea Hoot out through  the Dardanelles into tlie opon waters  of tho  world?"  If Russia docs it she will bo  breaking tho Treuty of Paris. Tliis  treaty', signed at iho end ot the  Crimean war, was designed to preserve Turkey's independence and to  prevent Russia swooping down suddenly upon Constantinople���������tho key  to tho Turkish Umpire, wliich it. was  then supposed she was anxious to  annex. Tho treaty also prevented  Russia from attacking hor small  neighbors, Roumonia and Bulgaria,  who also have Black Sea coasts.  Tho treaty was observed from its  signature in 1850 until 1871. Then  Russia refused to be bound by it  any longer. Soon after that tho  Treaty of London was signed, which  allowed warships in tho Black Sea,  but prohibited them from passing  through tho Dardanelles. This was  still to prevent Russia making a  sudden descent upon Constantinople.  The treaty, as signed, specially declares that no nation shall liberate  itself from tho obligations of the  treaty without the consent of the  other signing powers. Russia now  maintains that, if Turkey consents,  her warships can pass through tho  Dardanelles without tho consent of  tho other powers.  Certainly tho treaty was never  meant to meet a case0 such as the  present. It was never intended to  keep a. Russian loot bottled up in  tho Black Sea, when Russia wanted  to have it in another part of tho  world to take part in a war. Still,  the treaty does exist, and Russia  signed it; and for hor to attempt  to send hor fleet through tho Dardanelles would bo to brook that  treaty.   ��������� :  HOME,  SWEET HOME.

A glance at tho figures of  tho big battles of tlio past will show  that so.far the carbago in tbo Russo-  Japanese war has many times been  equaled or exceeded in battles in  which not many more than half tho  present forces wero engaged, Tnko,  for instance, tho wars of tho French  Revolution and Napoleon, which  surged buck and forward ovcr Europe from 1701 to 1815. Allison,  tho historical!, estimates that tho  French lost two millions in ' killed  alone in theso campaigns. In nine of  the battles in which Napoleon himsolf took part the losses wero as follows :  NAPOLEON'S OWN BATTLES.  Men Killed and  Battle, Engaged.  Wounded.

If there bo about six hundred thousand men fighting in Manchuria today, this Napoleonic proportion of  dead and wounded would give a stupendous total. Yot tho fighting went  on year after year for the bettor part  of a generation, and the suffering,  disease and death caused to tho  peaceful populations of the ravaged  countries must have been incalculable.  In tho Peninsula War, which was  merely a little by-play compared  with tho groat European campaign,  England left fifty thousand, dead and  tho French a quarter of a million behind thorn in Spain. At Saiainanca  wo lost J5 por cont. of our troops,  and at Albucrn 05 per cent. In the  Crimea tho total losses of Russia,  and the Allies wore put at 480,000,  and Britain lost 22 per cent, of hor  men; but thero wore no great decisive  battles with enormous slaughter.  TWO THOUSAND BATTLES.  Never in modern history has there  been such rapid waste of human lifo  as in tho American Civil War, with  ils two thousand battles and skirmishes. From 18GI to 18G5 it  raged ovcr tho whole of tho Mississ-  sippi Valley and throughout Georgia  and Alabama, taking in an area  .larger tlian Europe, and in thoso  four years six hundred thousand men  wore killed, ln a frontal attack by  General Grant at Coldharbor in  1864 ton thousand men foil in less  than ten 'minutes.  Hero are some typical specimens of  tho two thousand battles of this war  fought for thc liberty of the negro  slave :  Men     Killed-and  Battle. Engaged.      Wounded.  Sharnsburg, 1802 .128,000 21,910  Fredericksburg 1862.190,000 16,971  Chickamauga, 1803 .128,000 35,100  Gettysburg, 1863 ...163,000 37,000  Wilderness, 1364... 179,000 26,000  .Here again it will bo soon that the  losses in a single battle often came  nearer to 20 and 05 per cont. than  10 per cent, of those engaged.  The campaign of Sadowa, in which  tended for thc supremacy of thc German Confederation, lasted only soven  weeks, but the casualties numbered  57,000, or ovcr 8,000 a week. Tho  chief battle was that of Koniggrat/,,  whon the forces engaged wore 417,-  000 and the killed and wounded 26,-  000.  SEVEN MONTHS OF WAR.  In tho soven months of tho Franco-German War. 1870-71. the killed  and disabled numbered 371,751. A  million Germans and 710,000  Frenchmen took    tho field.  Coining to the Russo-Tiirkish' war  ^6f���������187-7-S-r^with���������its=total=--loss=__of-  nearly 200,000, the only notable  battle was before Plevna, whon in  the courso of a protracted siege thero  fell in a single day 18,000 out of  80.000 Russians engaged.  In tlio case of unarmed races confronted by modern arms, there have  boon somo instances of tremendous  slaughter ns when Lord Kitchener's  forco.*. shoti down ten thousand Dervishes nt Omdurman. But probably Omdurinaii was tho last of theso  easy victories over the barbarian.  Tho Italian o.xperienco in Abyssinia,  our Tirah adventurers the French  view of Seniissi, and tho Gorman encounter with lho Hcreros all tend  to show that savages will not again  moot tho European in opon battle  without 'first having secured hi.s weapons. Ami thon thoro will be something vcry different from tho processional marches of the past.  WRITING DONE BY WIRE  MARVELLOUS     SPEED     OF      A  NEW INSTRUMENT.  Telegraphic    Invention   SEo'vm     in  London���������Photography  Used.  Tho averago person can writo  about thirty to thirty-live words a  minute, says tlie London Express,  of a recent date. A good typist will  turn out about double that amount.*  Thoro was exhibited nt tho Charl������,  ton Hotel a telegraph instrument  that can transmit. messages and  writo tbem out in tlio most legiblo  of handwriting at the rate of moro  than 40,000 words an hour. This is  tlio latest, uud it would_,seem, tho  greatest marvel of clocliK .telegraphy,  'i'he fastest telegraphic "instrument  at prosont in operation is tho Wheat-  stor.-o Automatic, which transmits  telegrams from city to city at tho  rate of 200 to 250Words a minuto.  But messages whon sout by this system will have to bo translated from  the Morse tcnlegraphic language iuto ordinary language, and this can  bo done only at ordinary writing  spcod. Tho now Pollak-Virag telegraph instrument. transmits messages nt nearly four times the speed,  and delivers thcm direct from the instrument written in the plainest of  ordinary copy-book handwriting.  MJ5THOD OF USE.  How it is dono is a teohii.cal marvel that takes an electrical export  to grasp completely, but roughly  simplified tlio. system is a commonplace.  First, tho message to bo traas-  m^tt-cd is converted into Idle-  graphic dots and dashes on a perforator that looks liko an ordinary  typewriter. Tliis perforator, punches in a slip of paper a complicated  series of holes that correspond in  electrical impulses to the form of  letters.  By passing this slip over a series  of cylinders, electric waves find thoir.  way through tho perforated holes,  quick as a lightning flash, an'd aro  transmitted instantaneously to tho  other end of the wire, however far  it is, and come out at tho other cn'd  in the same sequence io which thoy  entered. Thc manner in which the  letters are recorded is tho marvel.  PHOTOGRAPHY HELPS.  Photography is called in. Thc electric waves are conveyed to a littlo  mirror, and they make the mirror,  move in two directions���������horizontal  niwl vortical. Electric light is focused lon the mirror, and then directed from it to a slip of sensitised  paper.  The mirror moves only about tho  hundredth part of a millimetre, and  the exposure of the sonsitized raper  is only about*-the thousandoth'part  of a second; but thc lightning Hash  is cjuiclcer, Bind though the eyo cannot follow the writing, yet it appears, plain as a pikestaff and without the possibility of error, at tho  rate of almost fifteen Words a second.  The two motions���������vortical and horizontal���������with the motion of thc paper being 'drawn before the finger  of light, supply all tho motions -of  handwriting. If produced    slowly  tliey  would,   of course,  be    angular,'  but tho speed makes thorn practically  curved.       Developing  and     fixing  tho photographed  message takes  ten  seconds  later'than  its  transmission.  AHEAD OF THE  AGE.  Thc system is so fast that it really  is  ahead  of  tho  age.      Vcry   fow  ���������  towns,   lot  nlone  individuals,     want  to  telegraph 40,000 words an hour.  Iridcod,     Ausfro-Hungary,    the home  of  the    inventors,  while enthusiastically endorsing the invention,    could  not mako use of it,  because no two  telegraph  offices  in  tho  empire have -  enough work to keep it going. Thoy  would have to save up telegrams for  a week to  keop  the instrument    going ten  minutes.  It ought  to prove  of immense valuo   ,  in   transmitting  speeches   from     out  of the way places,  whore fow    wires  exist.  BERLIN SORCERESS.

A rather humorous story is told  of a lawyer and physician who lived  next door to each other in a small  country town.  The physician one day asked if he  might borrow from the lawy-sr his  edition? of  Shakespeare's   works.  "You are welcome to read thc  work in imy library,", the lawyer answered, "but you can't take it  awny with you, I am sorry to say,  for I have lost so ninny books  through lending them that I have  resolved never to let another volume  leave my houso."  A week passed, and tho lawyer  came aiid asked for the loan of his  lawn-mower.  "I am only too glad to lend you  my lawn-mower," said tho physician,  "though it is my rule never to let  it leave my lawn. There, however,  you may.use it .all you please."

There was no doubt about it;  Martha had boon crying. Hcr mother, father and brother cxchnngecJ  Burpriscd glances that Martha was  .too , absorbed to notice. Her entire  attention was centered upon tho effort to keep back moro tears.  After dinner it all camo out���������in tho  ���������upper room to which Mrs. Dayton  had followed her usually cheery  daughter. A rehearsal of the school  play had taken place that afternoon  and Martha, dressing behind a screen  in tho corner of the drill hall, had  overheard a quiet but startling remark that had changed all the world  for hcr.  "What a pity Martha's so plain,"  one comrade had said to another.  "Lucy Jalct would look twice os  welt in her part."  "Yes, but Lucy can't act," had  been the quick answer, but this answer Martha scarcely noticed. She  was stung through with a strango  pain and sorrow. Never before had  ehe thought much about her personal  appearance; novor bofore known that  ehe was "plain:" Character, behavior, kindness, good humor, theso  Wore the standards in the Dayton  family. Personal appearance was  seldom  discussed. '  Now, howevor, Martha faced her  mother with keen inquiry, determined to know the whole truth.  "Mother," sho questioned, wheyi  Mrs. Dayton hod embraced some of  tho hurt and pain into tho background, "am I really so plain?"  For answer Mrs. Dayton again  kissed the round, rosy, honest-eyed  faco of her daughter. Then sho  spoke tho simple truth.  "Dear," she said, gently, "I want  you to hear mo through before  thinking any more about this mat-  ���������'. tor. You really aro plain. Martha,  in that your features aro very ordinary, your hair nothing remarkable and your faco freckled. But,  dearie, ;.��������� you are anything but unattractive, and I am suro you know  that I would not deceive you. I  have always tried to teach you to  be spotlessly nent and dainty, and  your expression and ways arc pleasant. 1 don't believe nine out of  every ton people you meet would notice your looks in the slightest. I  nm sure few of your friends would  v -admit you  really'plain."  "Who are the peoplo you admire  most of all your acquaintances?"  she continued, as .'Martha was silent.  "I know. Your Aunt Alice- anrl  Mrs. Drewly, ; your Sunday school  teacher. : jWcil, dearie, both of  those dear ladies aro very plain, if  .'���������-anyone ever cared to consider such  matters.. But both are so sweet and  lovely, so kind and gracious, that  .   nobody ever  does."  "I. admire you .more than anyone  else in the world," sobbed Martha,  wretched, but always in love with  her mother.  Mrs.  'Dayton,   rising,   laughed  soft-  "iy*  .  "Well. I am very, very plain, darling," she answered; "so���������I suppose  the moral is quite plain,  too."  But Martha would not bo comforted. Nor could sho bring herscll to  bo sensible. For nearly a week she  went about with the look of one  -confronting a hopeless sorrow, while  family, friends, teachers, comrades,  everybody but hor mother wondered.  Then Mrs. Dayton, finding her alone  and brooding suddenly held before  her sad face a mirror.  "Now, indeed, you look plain,"  was her simple comment. Martha,  flushing, looked obstinately' away.  Mrs. Dayton sat down beside hor and  ���������drew  her  to  hor  arms.  "I know how you feel, dearie," she  ���������said; "I remember the timo when I  ���������first learned that I was not pretty.  And T love beauty just as you do,  Martha. I havo always longed to  he physically lovely. But���������my own  dear mother helped mo over tho hard  place, dearest, as I am trying to  help 'you. ��������� She didn't preach to mc  --or-scold;-but -she-made^ino^promise  to look in the mirror evory time I  felt particularly mournful or joyous, and tho first gloomy reflection  taught mo a great deal."  The recollection of the gloomy face  just shown her taught Martha a  great deal. also. Tho silent struggle  was arduous but soon over. Presently slie laughed  aloud.  ''Well. Motherkins," she observed,  in quite hor natural manner, "I  suppose I might as well mako the  bost of a bad bargain. I must try  to act so nicely that my .ugliness  will  bo forgiven, must I not?"  "The lack of actual beauty, not  ngliness," returned Mrs. Dayton,  "will seldom ho noticed so long as  you aro naturally bright and cheerful. Your friend probably only noticed it whon sho did because tho  character you nro to impersonate is  supposed to demand great beauty.  Most likely sho had never dreamed of  analyzing your personal appearance  before." ..-. '���������  Never a person of half-way measures was 'Martha. A fact once acknowledged, sho usually mot it. with  calm common sense. She even refrained, upon this occasion, from  explaining hcr unusual behavior of  the past Week. She strove to be  natural, almost casual, in her manner of freeing her mind.  "Wouldn't, il. bo ns well," sho inquired, when tho rehearsal' group had  .once more gathered, "to offer my  part, ta Lucy Jalct? I know it so  well I could conch her nicely in  timo for tlie great evening. And  she'd look the part, much better,  she's so pretty and sweet."  "But she can't, actl" roso the astonished  chorous,   "and   you  can."  "Besides," added shrewd, kindly  'Ann Johnson, always on the alert lo  .detect and allay hurl, feeling, "looks  don't mailer much in .a case of tliis  kind, excepting when you don't  .know    anything    about    theatricals.  Your height and bearing aro all  right, Martha, and the stage manager will see that your 'make-up'  brings you out n beauty. Tho prettiest girls often look the plainest on  the stage."  "It's brains, brains, brains we  want now, Martha," prattled Alice  Dunham, tho school jester and darling, "and wc bolievo you* moro  than ordinarily supplied with thorn.  Hence theso���������this opportunity to  make your everlasting histrionic  fame. You'vo got-to take tho part,  Martha, that's all thoro is to it. For  if you  don't���������you must!"  "Resides," this was the unanimous  rehearsal group verdict, givon as  the merry laughter always following  Alice's sallies died away, "Lucy  knows sho can't act, and sho  wouldn't try it for anything. Sho's  often said so. And sho's on tho  reception committee for tho play  evening, and too dear and sweet to  be spared from it even if wo have  no play nt all."  "You look simply fine in that costume, Martha," Ann Johnson exclaimed as tlie comforted girl mado  hor transformed appearance. "Talk  of not being pretty, goosio I'd  give anything to be as straight and  tall as you arc. And, honestly, I  novor seo anything of. you but your  eyes and your smile!"  It was her last battle of this order, and the night of tho school play  brought to her not only a charming  success because of her spirited acting, but also a pleasantly unexpected  confirmation  of hor mother's  words.  "What do you think, Martha!"  cried Ann Johnson, catching hold  of her as sho slipped into..her'cloak  to go home.���������.'.'Something ,so funny  ���������to,, me���������has happened that I must  tell you.  "My Aunt Jane, who doesn't know  nny of you girls, thought you looked  so sweet and protty in your costume, and she askod mother if you  were always so good-looking ns tonight.  "And mother���������this is so funny because we've known you always���������just  looked at mo in the queerest way  you can think of.  ' ".'Is sho good-looking always.  Ann?' she asked inc.

"Just think of that. Martha, whon  you've grown up on the same street  with .mother, and sho's seen you  times and times every day!, Just  fancy! Slio simply couldn't remember how you "looked ouly that p~'\  wero  nice to  see!"  Ann flitted off to spread the me. -  ry joke broadcast, and Martha, hor  eyes bright with unwonted moisture,  was glad hor friend had not waited  for an answer. It was so pleasant,  despite hcr fino resolutions never  again to be troubled because of hor  lack of personal beauty to find that  it really mattered not at all..   A-   TIGERS BESIEG-E A VILLAGE.  Man Eaters   Have    Killed Several  of* the Inhabitants.  The polico station at Katigora was  a fow days ago tho scene of groat  excitement and horror when - thc  corpses of unfortunate Nidan Patni,  who mot his lamentable death from  tho claws of a tiger, was carried  thero for inspection says tho Wcckly  Inclian Chronicle.  Four persons wero killed during  the course of a few weeks, besides a  number of persons mauled; while  carrying away of cattle is going on  almost every day. Tho tigers that  havo caused so groat a havoc here  aro now proved to bo four in number* one tiger, one tigress and two  bi cubs, and our sympathetic Deputy- Commissioner is said lo have offered a reward of Rs. 40'for the destruction of each of them.  The ferocious brutes, having taken  thoir abode l-3r the side of the only  important; road leading from Kati-  gorn to the village Gangapur, have  practically laid siege to the village,  with the result that communication  on foot has been stopped. Several  attempts that had been mado to afford relief to the unfortunate villagers wore all unsuccessful.  A party of local shikaries muster-  _ing _strong_ and equipped_jyith_ fire^  arms marched into tlio jungle at^tho  head of our energetic Naib'Tohsildar  Maulvi Mahommed I'srail to hunt  tho tigers, but with nil their efforts  thoy could not make the master  stripes come out of thoir recess. Tho  next day, however, another party,  consisting of four European gentlemen, with a largo number of coolies,  surrounded tho jungle and succeeded  in arousing the tigers, which managed to escape through the line without giving tho .hutiters nu opportunity  of  discharging  bullets.  Thoy pursued tho animals and made  them   swim  across   a  bee!.    Tt   is     a  matter    "of.   regret   thut   the  bravo  hunters  failed     to   hit    tho animals  while they wore struggling in the water although a good number of shots  wero fired.

BOTn  BOTHERED.  The neighbor leaned upon ricr gar-  'den-rako and called over tho fence.  "I noticed a light in your houso  Inst night, Mr. Rimley," sho snid.  "Aro your baby's tooth bothering  him again?"  "Don't know how" much they're  bothering him," ho answered, shortly; "but they'ro bothering tho life  out of mo."-  i  i*  z  ^l^jf^^j.^.^^'l.-MWH^^'M^^'  It was winter and very cold, and  the panels of costly wood, carved  with art and wealth of detail, had  been carefully closed around tho  Prince, making th'o room in which ho  sat very small.  Many beautiful robes lined wilh  warm wool and covered with priceless silk lay crossed in contrasting  colors on tho daimio's breast, aad  on ono wide sleeve of tho outermost  garment was embroidered a star  formed by five balls encircling a  sixth. This was the crest of tlie  illustrious Kauga family, which knows  no equ.nl throughout, all Japan or  among tho islands of Sh'endai nnd  Satsuma.  Tho Prince, in spite of his vassals,  his lands nnd his monoy, felt nevertheless that he was very poor and  miserable. And the reason was that  for several days he had tried to tliink  of something for the anniversary of  h'is daughter's birthday and Ke could  tliink of nothing.  It wa.s unfortunately true that the  Princess, who would on the morrow  attain the dignity of sixteen, already  possessed everything that it wns possible for a young lady to possess,  but this was no consolation to the  daimio. What was the use oi being  a Prince, of 'having such" wealth, if  he could not offer her something now  an'd pleasing?  Presently ho arose.  "I will go to her apartments. Perhaps, unconsciously, she will tell me  what she would like," he said to  liimsclf.  Ho struck a bronze gong and immediately llio carved panels rolled  open, disclosing ennless halls filled  with samurais,*of noble birth, pages;,  guards and menials. The samurais  who wore the two swords bowed deep  while nir tho others prostrated themselves on tho ground.  "I will visit my daughter," said  the daimio.  Fiaki, or Ray of Sunshine, sat on  a pile of cushions in the ��������� h'nll of lier  own particular palace. Tho folds of  her magnificent robes wore arranged  symmetrically about'.;Hcr.' in many colors and shapes, but most abundant  was the wonderful kimono of bluo satin everywhere embroidered with spider webs in w'hicli were caught tho  many colored, petals of summer flowers.  Tlio young girl's face was white ns  snow, her crimson lips opened slightly to disclose two rows of pearly  tooth, and the eyebrows, following tho  manner of Princesses, were closely  shaven .and replaced by two littlo  black patches painted very high on  llu forehead.  As the Prince entered, Fiaki hid  hcr face for ah instant in th'o "long  Rlffvcs of her robe, thus greeting her  father with a tender and: modest 'salute. The daimio smiled witli pleasure at tho grace and beauty of the  child whom lie adored."'He "overwhelmed her with caressing nnmes,  asking her if she was happy and if  tlioro Was nothing she desired.  "Ah! illustrious Prince and father,"  cried Fiaki, clasping lior hands; sorrowfully, "how can I be happy while  the earth' suffers? How can I smile  wlion the skies weep? Ali, the gods  aro cruel to have croatod. tho winter  season! -I fool liko a. poor little exiled plant, barely alive, and yet .unable to die!",  "It is certain there is nothing she  'desires so imuch" as springtime."  thought the Prince to himself, once  more back in his little room.  He scowled ; fiercely at tlio gray  clouds.:;o-utRirfe.'.' Suddenly h'o commanded the presence of his chief Minister. Nni-da-tsin hastened to learn  the wishes of his illustrious lord, but  the Minister's heart sank at the sight  of the Prince's sombre face.  "To-morrow is my daughter's birthday." ho began, coldly. "I desire,  do you understand, I desire that by  daybreak to-morrow the trees and  bushes of the pnrk and tlio entire  country surrounding the palace.shall  be covered wilh flowers, ns in tho  first months of tho springtime. You  mny go."  "Your will sliall bo obeyed in all  things." murmured th'e 'Minister, bowing himself out backward.  Onco outside lie clutched liis hnnds  in t'hc protecting sleeves of his garment.  . "It is exile, it. is death.!" he  thought, bitterly. "Wriot enn I havo  done that should disgrace mc?"  Hc examined h'is conscience severely.  "Nothing," he snid nt Inst. "Tho  Prince really desires thnt tlio spring  should como to liis daughter. Well,  I will not trouble about death. Bu.t  is tliere no other way?"  A sudden inspiration came to him,  and h'o ran swiftly to his own palace, noting, witli terror, t'hat the  short winter 'day was nearly ended.  Gathering his colleagues around him,  he told them of the extraordinary demand of the Prince.  "Thoro is only ono thing to be  done," he went on, noting th'e frightened faces about him. "Listen! We  may yet bo saved.  "Every one within three leagues  around, men. women, girls and boys,  nobles, merchants and peasants, must  set instantly to work with' silk, velvet, satin and paper and make scores  of flowers. Let them cut up th'eir  clothes, th'eir hangings, let them make  uso of their fans, cushions; everything tliey liavo.  "Then, before daybreak, all these  flowi*-s must be tied, fastened or  glued to all the trees and bushes ..f  tho park and all the couniry near  the palace; tho finest and best near  tho Princess's palace and tho poorest  tho furthest away. All the painters  ond artists must superintend the decorations.  "Tnko thc army, tako the hospitals, tako the prisons. Every ono  must work, no one must stop to oat  or   drink   to-night.   Go,   and  remem  ber that' your very lives depend upon  your success."  Without a word the Ministers fled  immediately from the palace. In leas  than an hour there was not a palace  nor a houso in tho city nor a single  village in the country whero tho inhabitants were not making flowers,  and if ono had looked that night  from the daimio's palace ho would  have seen thousands of lanterns  bobbing about among the trees in  every direction.  Tho next morning, as her women  finished dressing her, Fiaki heard tho  sound of sweet singing and many instruments beneath her window.  "Ah! it is my birthday to-day,"  she said, with a shiver. "Why aro  thc gods so cruol as to cause it to  fall in the winter time?" Her women pulled aside thc curtains from tho  window.  "What a beautiful day, mistress,"  they said.  Indeed, as if it wore a courtior, tho  sky was clothed in richest blue, in  which the sun liko a golden jewol  shone proudly.  Languidly tho Princess walked out  upon the balcony. But what a cry  of joy and surprise broke from, her  lips! Flowers,   flowers,   in     every  direction and" as far as sho could seo.  The Princess rubbed hor eyes. Was  it a miracle?  "Father, father!" she cried as tho  noblo Princo entered hcr apartment,  "truly you are a god."  Tho daimio, smiling with pleasure,  proposed a ride through the park to  sco tho magical springtime. Tho delighted Princess clapped her hands,  nnd the brilliant procession of gayly  clad courtiers headed by the Prince  and his daughter started slowly  down tho winding avenue.  "What a delicious : perfume- scouts  tho air!"  cried the Princess.  Surprised, the daimio realized that  the soft odors of tho spring flowers  did indeed fill the air. Tho secret  was that every few rods a firo of  sweetest incense burned in carefully  hidden braziers.  Presently ���������������������������' an especially beautiful  pink plum treo caught tho attention  of tho Princess.  "I wish a branch of that treo,"  she cried, happily. "It will bo a  memory of one oi tho most beautiful  promenades of my life."  The .daimio looked uneasily at tho  Minister.  "Sho will discover the cheat," ho  thought.  But Nai-da-tsin did not tremble  nor grow pale.  "Grant mo the' honor to pluck it  for you," ho said.  He rodo up to the tree arid brought  back.id superb branch. The princess  seized it, burying hcr face in the  fresh,  rosy flowers.  The daimio was more surprised  than bofore. Ho did not guess that  tho Prime Minister had emptied all  the greenhouses of all the palaces  and had prepared many trees for just  such on occasion.

But, toll me, what can I, do next  year to pass  this  marvellous  rote?"  Tho Primo Minister smiled slowly,  no pointed to a charming young  man;' son of the Prince of Satsuma,  who-was aiding tho Princess-Fiaki to  alight from her coach.  "When another year has passed and  the Princess receives? another* birthday as a gift from the gods, give  her for a husband that charming  Prince. She will love him more  than sho does the springtime."  Tho daimio handed the Minister a  key of bronze,  incrustod with gold.  "This is tho key to my treasures,"  ho said. ?- Take it and mako what  use of it you will. You aro more  valuable to mc than gold: or precious stones."   , ^  THE ART OF' SUCCESS.  Nothing More Than Getting Along  With People.  "What a fino follow Percy X. is!"  remarked a business man one day to  a lawyer friend.  "Yes," rcjoined-thc law "er," ho is.  But he has been with the K's���������naming a groat corporation���������"for ton  years now and ho is. getting only  S150 per' month.'. He has a wifo and-  tliree children, nnd, with their tastes  I fancy thoy have all they can do to  Ii%'o comfortably. Ho ought to bo  _ea r n i u g_i n q re__w ith_his__od uca IJ oii_an d  capacity."  "Wliy doesn't he rise faster?"  "I'll tell you. Ho doesn't rise and  ho can't until ho learns how to got  along wilh people. lie can't manage  men at all. If ho tries ho gots  himself disliked, nnd he keeps tliem  in a  constant state of irritation."  A similar conversation was recently overheard between two business  men. Said.ouc'. "I hoar that young  Paul G., only four years out of college, has' been placed al, tho head of  the T. branch of tho Y.' Company.  I didn't know ho was so smart.  What is liis strong point?"  "He is a great follow to got along  with people," answered tho other  man.. "No man would, of course, bo  put in a placo of such-responsibility  without integrity, fair quickness and  ability, and a good education. But  there nro scores of men who havo  all those qualities and yet they do  not go forward, because they cannot exercise--authority.'- Tf Uiey receive any they either make tho men  under thorn cross and restive by  petty tyrannies, or else they are too  good-natured and lose the respect of  the men���������aro imposed on by them  and don't got good work out of  them. It. seems to be the rarest  thing in the world to find young  men who have dignity and keenness  enough to maintain discipline, and  yet fan make thoir subordinates boar  the yoke cheerfully and render good  service."  A third young man was characterized by the president of a groat, railway thus: "I iiavon't had a chnnco  to talk with him and find out how  much ho knows, but I have watched  him several times ns ho manipulated  a gang of men, and ho has for  weeks managed them wonderfully. Wo  have rarely had a man in our employ who could get so much work  out of a lot of men and at tho samo  time could keep them so decently  good-tempered."  GREATWARRIOR'S OMENS  ABE OFTEN TURNED TO THEIR  OWN ADVANTAGE.  Superstitious Soldiers Encouraged  by Jaunty Reception of  Untoward Events.  Some great warriors havo been  gifted with ready wit which has enabled them to pass off as an auspicious sign what might bo supposed  to be an unlucky portent. Looty-  chides II. of Sparta was told by his  augurs that his projected expedition  would fall because a viper had got  entangled in the handle of the city  koy. "Not so," ho replied, "the key  caught  the viper."  Every schoolboy knows the story  how William the Conqueror fell to  tho ground on landing at Povensey  and how this was turned lo a lucky  omen by William himself or by a  sailor crying out that he took "seisin" of tho kingdom with both  hands. Frecmantle thinks that it is  probably an adaptation of tho story  of Caesar's landing in Africa, when,  having stumbled, ho exclaimed, with  admirable presence of mind, "Thus  I take possession of thoc, oh,  Africa!"  When William was arming for tho  battle of Hastings his squiro by accident handed him tho back piece  bofore tho breastplate, an evil omen  signifying flight, but tho Duko turned  tho mishap to cheerful account.  Yes, tho last shall be first," said  he; "that is, tho Duko shall bo  King."  Others thero havo been who have  met the evil omen half way by  [.throwing up the sponge. On the morn  of the battle of Shrewsbury Hotspur  called for his favorite sword, and  on boing told that it had been loft  behind at tho village where ho spent  tho previous night ho turned palo  and said:���������"Then has my plough  reached its last furrow." Beforo  many hours tho power of the Porclos  was shattered and thoir groat captain was a corpse.  It is reported tliat an accident  which befell a sacred icon in-Russia,  called tho "Inversky mothei* goddess," whilo being carried in procession to give sanctity to a religious service connected with the war,  has created a sinstor impression  throughout tho empire. Many Russians holiovo in miracle working pictures; hence wlien a wind capsizes tho  vehicle in which an icon is being carried and. deposits the article in the  mud it is not surprising to find that  the accident should bo regarded as  a manifestation of displeasure.  UNHEEDED BY NAPOLEON.  Napoleon's invasion of Russia began with a curious personal mishap, followed by real gathering  c.ouds. The Emperor arrived ','on  June 23,: 1812, at the Niemen, the  frontier of Russia. As ho appeared  on tho bank of tlic river at two  o'clock in tho morning his horse-  stumbled and threw him. A voice  cried out:���������".This' is a bad augUry.  If this occurred to a-'Roman general he would turn back."  It is not known whether it was thc  Emperor; or ono of his suito who  spoko the  words.  "The next day,", says an eyewitness, "scarcely had the Emperor  crossed the river when a dull noise  agitated the air.: The light afterwards, became obscured, the wind  rose, and; the sinstor rolling of thunder was heard; the heavens had a  menacing aspect, and the- bare, shelterless earth presented nn appearance that tilled us with, sadness.  Somo. of those who but a short time  before woro inspired with onthusiasun  wero now shaken with : fear, as if  they regarded those circumstances of  evil onion. They believed that those  fiery clouds which were gathered to-  gather over our heads were forbidding'our entrance into Russia." <  At any rate, those wise after the  event declared that they had portended the burning of Moscow, with  its appaling consequences to the  Grand Army.  Then, on tho morn "of Waterloo,  the I'Jinpcror met with another mishap. As Gudin, his page, was helping him into the saddle, ho lifted thc  imperial, elbow too suddenly and Napoleon pitched^ oyer on the off side,  nearly coming to-the-grofiiiJl.  Much significance wa.s attached of  old to more numbers, and potency  was supposed to bc inherent with  each of thcm. In this respect, thero  appears to havo boen nn evil destiny  influencing tho last imperial ruler of  Franco when ho -preferred to designate himself Napoleon III. instead of  calling himself that which he really  wns, Napoleon II. The number  three became his fatal number and  indicated his destiny. lie was engaged in threo indiscreet wars, the  Italian, tho Mexican and tho Prussian. Tliree tiimes was ho .banished,  three times wus ho made a prisoner  and throb times wns lie disarmed at  the head  of hi.s  military  forces.  Nevertheless tho "Man of Destiny"  could do a graceful thing to avert  nn ill omen. Captain Jean Coeur-  prcux in a .ball given nt tho Tuilor-  ins just aftor tho declaration of  win* airainst. Prussia tripped and fell  in the first dance. Tho air was  charged with electricity, and what  at. anv,other time would have been  regarded as a laughable mishap created .consternation. But Napoleon  hold out his hand to help liim up,  snying as he did so;���������"Monsieur lo  commandant, this is the second time  I have seen you fall. The first time  was by.'my side in tho field of Magenta." Then, turning to tho lady,  ho added, "Henceforth Captain Coe-  urproux is commandant of my  guides."  WONDERFUL TEAR TREE.  At. Walderfield, Germany, formerly  grew a wonderful pear trco. When  things were-prosperous it blossomed  and boro fruit, and when thoy declined its loaves became blanched  and no fruit was formed. In 1806,  when Napoleon forced thc feeble  Francis II. to sacrifice his title of  German Emperor and to content  hiinsclf with  that  of  Francis I.     of  Austria, this tree yielded neither  leaves  nor fruit.  In 1848, when German unity seemed to bo a possibility, it blossomed  onco more, but only to languish  again when tho dream melted away.  In 1870 it celebrated the achievements of the army by yielding a  most abundant crop.  iWhilo tho Russian army was encamped before Constantinople, after  the signing of the treaty of San  Stefano and beforo the assembling  of tho Berlin Congress, alarm was  manifested by the'soldiery at a remarkable instance of the phcnetinoon-  on known as  thc fata  morgana.  Ono day, in tho direction of the  Black Sea. thore appeared in the  sky the counterfeit of fortifications  which an officer who knew the place  pronounced to bo thoso of Sevastopol. As this fortress was about  threo hundred and eighty miles distant, it was an extraordinary case  of refraction. The soldiers were  confirmed iu their view that it was  an unlucky portent, for soon afterward tho British fleet entered tho  Dardanelles, and with its advent  vanished tho Muscovito dream of  holding  Constantinople by conquest.  PERQUISITES OF PEERS.  Old    Laws That Have to Do With  Noblemen.  Peers of tho realm in England Cannot be bourjd over to keep the peace  liko  ordinary  citizens.  There is no end of the antiquated  prerogatives of the peerage, some of  which are ignored by the peers themselves.  For instance, no peer of the realm  is obliged to stamp his letters if addressed to people within thc limits  of the vast British Empire. His  frank, or signature, on the envelope  is sufficient; though thoro are few  peers who take advantage of this  immunity, now that the postage of  an ordinary  to a penny.  It is also  WHY  HE  FAILED.  He was an elder of a chapel ia a  little Glamorganshire town. Ho was  also a tradesman, and ho fell upon  evil days. His creditors pressed him  and he was forced to file his petition  in bankruptcy.  His failure was the talk of tho  town. He felt his position acutely,  and kept as much as possiblo within  doors.  Thon the brethren decided to hold  a meeting, and tho unworthy elder  was summoned to attend. Tho pastor spoke first. He urged his peoplo  to  bo considerate and   tender.  Ho was followed by a man who  made an eloquent speech on honesty  in trade, and concluded by moving  that tho elder be suspended from  office for a period to give him time,  to purge himself of his heinousness.  A seconder and supporter spoko to  the same effect.  Tho brethren looked severe, thoir.  countenances were set with tho  sternness of a righteous wrath, a  deep silence pervaded thc room.  Slowly and humbly tho older arose.  "I want,'- ho murmured meekly, "to  say a few things based on my ledger. Tho mover of the resolution  owes mo ������16. I offered him throa  weeks ago to settle it for ������12, to'  save myself from my present position. The seconder owes me ������13. I  told him I would accept ������10 to pro-  vent this exposure. The supporter,  of the resolution is indebted to rao  to the amount of ������51."  A brief pause. "And now, with  your permission"���������turning to tha  pastor���������"I will read out tho sums  the others  present owo me."  He rend them out, calmly and deliberately, but long ere he had finished  the  brethren  had   fled.  WAS NOT IN IT.

In tho same way thc ordinary citizen who becomes involved in a fistic  encounter with a peer exposes himself to terribly severe punishment for  contempt of the Houses of Parliament.

"Ho has talents, undoubtedly, but  they are creative only in giving work  to others, tho product passing for  his own inthe end. .

"Tlio lato Court Chaplain Frorn-  in.cl used to write the Imperial sermons delivered with so much eclat  on tho deck of tho yacht Hohenzol-  lorn;': officers of the military household prepare William's lectures, and  tho artist Karl Saltzmann paints his  landscape and marine .views."

"Other young men, Matilda, mere  butterflies of fashion, may danco  attendance upon you nnd flatter you.  Listen not to them. Listen to .tho  voice of sincere devotion.

McBRIDE GOVERNMENT.  the opening of the House at Victoria  and there is no sign yet that tbe McBride Government is in the parlous  state   that the   Kootenay   Mail   and  other   opposition   papers   have   been  predicting for it since the last session  closed.    The debate on the Address is  generally  a   fair  indication   of  how  matters stand or are likely  to stand  between a government and its opponents throughout a session.    Jf the Opposition has a line of attack to develop  or even feels a confidence in its ability  to show weakness in tbe Government  policy or failure   in   its   conduct  oi  affairs to date, it is then that the contest will begin.     But the debate on  Address showed the Government to  be, if anything, stronger than  a year  ago.    Mr. Macdonald, as leader of the j  Opposition,  showed  his usual ubilitv  and caution, but neither he nor any  other Opposition speaker,   of  whom  there were extremely few,  were able  tornake an  effective attack  on  anything   the   Government had done oi  failed to do, while the Premier's reply  bad a jaunty air of confidence which  showed n'o apprehension of weakening  support or troublous times ahead.  -    No doubt the surplus had a great  deal to do with the result.    Admit  that tbe Assessment Act has created  unpopularity in many quarters,  it is  much to know that one of its _ result.-  has been a surplus for the first time in  Twent^flW"j-TaTsr==Admitr tlrat" the*-?  per cent, tax is unpopular, it is much I  for tbe mining industries  of the province that the credit of the province  has been so vastly itnpioved.     AYhat  has condemned British  Columbia  it?  lhe eyes of outside   investors in tlic*  of  industry.     But  there  is much to be  said in favor of assisting outsido  districts in the matter of transportation  by tram.     The Province has built six  thousand iniles of wagon roads at, an  average cost of t wo  thousand  dollar  a mile, and it  has guaranteed  bond  and subsidized railways lo  lhe extent  of millions.    "Why   not   assist train-  ways ?  Perhaps the tram has escaped notice  because it is a  now  industry.      Tt  is  not   many  years  since operation   by  tram run   b.v   electricity   was   sonio-  lliing.pf a novclly.    But lhc neighboring state or California has shown that  hundreds of iniles of country  may  be  well served by electric tramways.     Tn  the state of 'Washington  the  Giaves  syndicate has secured  money and  a  charter to connect Spokane  with  tlic  state of Idaho by tram.      It   i.s  timo  this province woke up to the possibili-i  tics of tho tram system as a means of  transporting   cheaply   and   regularly  P'1-.SBiigcrs and every kind of freight.  Mr. Taylor has done well in pointing out that it is a work in which a  government can well assist.  ADDRESS  (Continued from Page 1.)  representative!., upon the (ioor of the  House.

I Territories came up for consideration,  which it must in the near future, tin*  province would receive the consideration it was entitled tn.  .Surely it was intended by tlie fr.un-  ers of the B. X. A. Act that the diit'er-  ��������� *nl province*:   should   have stilVicient  .source.*, of revenue, and   when   it  was  found l hat such was not. tlm case, and  l liat injustice existed, time ami again  liad   representations    been    mnde'  bv  oilier   provinces   for    Metier   Term*.,  which met with   favorable consideration and remedial legislation soon followed.      Hut   except ion was maili- to  the mil* in  dealing with   British Co.  limibia.       It     was    shown    by   lliis  memorial that in   tlie :.2 yfars sin.*.*'  Brilish Columbia entered 'Confederation it had  (*->nlrihiil.cd   .-tluiost   8*111,-  oOO.GOO    lo   the   l*Y*ilnrnl   i.xoheriuor';  while about HJi millions had  been   returned to the province in public works,  etc.. leaving a balance in favor of the I  Dominion of about, 1~ millions,   or an  j average of about .<_.i-)0,(Jf_<_, which had  | been paid the Dominion  government,  The expenditure for civil government  was over nine times tliat of any oilier  province on the average per "capita.  The average per capita cost of the  administration of justice was four  times as great as tlie cost in otiier  provinces. lA.i* hospitals and charities  the average per capita expenditure  was live times as much. All these  facts should convince lhe Federal  auliiorities that nur grievance veiiuired  immediate consideration and substantial financial relief.  Tlie exclusion of our railway system  to keep pace wilh the development of  the couniry became the boimden duty  of Ilie government ami if this could be  brought aboul. without placing undue  burdens   on  tlie  taxpayer,   it   was a  I'liiisuiiiin.'tfinu di'vuvily to be desired.  Thore was no doubt tint the province  was phenomenally  rich in  resources.  If wa:',   however, of   sueh   enormous  extent,   and   its   physical   conditions  were so rugged, lhat tlie cost of  railway construction must necessarily be  very great.    Tliey did not yet seoin lo  have reached the point at wliich  railway   companies   were -'compel en I   to  build Ihrough mi undeveloped district  wit limit some aid.   Ceitainly for veavs  we had been at  a   standstill   in" this  connection    through    lhe   fact   Hint  sufficient  assistance  was not   apparently forthcoming to induce the great  railway corporations to take up this  question actively, and  the  thanks of  tliis House would indeed   bo duo  the  government on'presentation  of their  railway policy, if this could be done as  was  intimated   by  tbo  imposition  of  obligations which should be commensurate with tho  abilitiy   of  the taxpayers to ii,eel.  There   was   apparently   an   urgent  necessity for lhe construction of a line  of railway into the Siuiill.nu-eeh country and  the extension   of' the   same  Ihrough to tlm Kootenays in order to  retain the trade of that country within the piovince.     Tlie  necessity  of a  road tlirough   the   Siniilkaiiieen and  Nicola would bo readily  admitted by  every member of the House.     It was  within the knowledge of every member of thc House that; this section was  wonderfully,   in   fact   '.lu'.noiuiiially,  rich in its many and varied resources,  ���������fudging from lale development, many*  of the richest gold, mines  of the province were located tliere.    Copper was  also found ir. great quantities, and the  same could lie  said as   regards   coal.  The   opportunities   for   agriculturists  and horticulturists  were  also   great.  Tbe timber areas also wero of considerable extent, but naturally the rapid  development oftho country could not  be anticipated  unlil somo   easy   and  cheap   means   of 'transportation     of  goods, prodiicLs and supplies was inaugurated.  Necessity   for   railroad   connection  also existed in tlie Kootenays and  on  tlie Island,   and  'no.-, doubt' in   ninriy  ollier sections of the province, and ho  hoped that such development as could  be reasonably  undertaken   would   bo  put in motion with ,-is  little delay as  possible.    I!e piessed on  the government tho   advisability   of   extending  assislnnce In tramways to operate iu  sedioiis of llio country   wheie active  development    operations    were    now  underway, and where Ilie probabilities  of railway eonsl ruction weie verj* le-  niote.     He referred more particularly  to I.he district, which   lie  represented  and lo certain sections of that district  whicli were isolated as  it'v.ere from  Uie general system of railway connection.     The   cost   nt   maintenance, of  these roads, ovei-whicli many tons of  ore and supplies  weie   passing  daily,  was a most serious drain on the public  treasury, to say nothing  of  tbe  high  rate which must necessaiily be charged Io the mercli'inls and   mine  operators by freighters for such transportation.     'I'he government,   lie thought,  might   take'under   advisement    the  nece.-sity for extending assistance  to  (rani companies wliich showed adesire  to introduce this system  of transportation into iticse lornliiie*.. and bv so  doing would be relieved nf the responsibility  of   year   after   year   making  provision for the maintenance of the  public roads.  The mining industry of the province  showed a gratifying increase in output and receipt-? therefrom. Particularly must they feet gratified with the  result of operations in the Boundary  country, where the mines wero somewhat of low grade, but possessed enormous deposits. The successful operation of "these large mines with a satisfactory margin of profit, and the  increase in capacity of thc reduction  and smelting works to keep pace with  tbe rapid and more extensive development of tlie mines, was certainly most  encouraging, and pointed umnislake-  nbly lo the fact that the near future  would see tbis section of  the  ii.teri._i'  and crown dues in connection with  the industry was Si'JH.OOO. Revenue  tax payable by mill employees at $3  per bead, was $1(1,5:;'.).  Thc importance of the  industry   to  the revenues of the province, and" the  disaster it would   be   should   circumstances result in the closing down  of  the mills, was evident.     Fortunately  there was a feeling of more  security  today than there was a  few  months  ago, and it.  was   now fully expected  that   the   loiig-lookeii-l'or  relief  from  Ottawa in  the  shape of   a   duty   on  American lumberwas about to be put  in force.     "While the lumbermen bad  no   grievance   towards   the    present  government they fell that  regulations  as to  tlieir  holdings   might   without  fear of any reduction in  the  revenue  lie well made,   giving   tn   lhem    lnouv  security in their holdings and making  lo  them   nn  asset   upon   which   tliey  could reali/.e for  lhe  purpose  of stiil  fnrtber extending tlieir business.     Af  tlie present lime nine-tent lis of  their  mill   operators   were  winking under  the special license system,   wliich had  been   resort od   to  owing  to  Ihe   fact  that  th(!   limber   was   not  dense   or  regular as on the coast, but was scat-,  tered along the rivers and gulloys, a  mile here and a mile there,  and as  a  consequence no large tracts of timber  could be taken up  in  any 'particular  locality,   and   as   the   lease    system,  which was more generally in vogue on  tho    coast,    called   for   a  survey   of  ground, and the special license system  did not, it was quite easy to understand why the up country lumbermen  preferred tn operate under the  latter  system,     lt was found, however, that  the special license did  not   hold   the  same tangible value as a  lease,   being  renewable only at  tho option of the  Chief   Commissioner   of   Lands   and  Works, wliile the latter  was a lease  covering a period of twenty-one years,  fn order to make his .holdings.of some  stable value to bim  and  an  asset on  which he could realize through a bank  or have absolute title to for a certain  number of years,  snflicientlv long  to  justify bim for his original "outlay in  the equipment of his mill,' the operator asked the government to make his  license absolutely renewable year by  year, or turn it into a lease.     Jf the  latter course were followed  the   mill  man proposed to contribute not only  bis $115 for every square mile of lumber held by hiin.   but tlie sum of 00  cents royalty on  the 1,000  feet  cut,  being an increase of 10 cents over the  present royalty paid by  leaseholders.  In this way it was apparent  that tlie  government must necessarily receive  considerably    more   revenue  as   the  lumber was cnt and gave the mill man  at once stability of title.    He strongly,  recommended Mils scheme to ..the: government,    being    sure    its   adoption  would be as. beneficial   to provincial  interests as to the lumber industry.  Mr. Taylor concluded with an  eloquent peroration.  *_MO*  NOTICK.

Tlie province con tii billed lo  the Dominion about 2?,* times as much  per capita as the rest of Canada,.      In  addition to tin's they  musi,  nol, overlook the  extraordinary  lii^'li  cost*  of  administration of a province such  as  this, with  il.s  roiij^h  and  precipitous  mountain ranges, its sparsely settled  districts    and    scaUeri'il   pojiulal.inii.  On   comparison    il,   was   found   Uml,  whereas Ibe annual average expenditure of all   the   other   provinces   on  roads, streets antl   bridges amounted  to T.'. li-o t-.eut.'i per capita, on the ()| her  hand,   the average   expenditure   per  capita in British Columbia is $2.01. ���������  rilTO.

At  Ottawa, however, it seems that he is,  the friend   of   monopolistic   corporations,  as the following will show:���������  Early in the* week Mr. Jjuscomhu received 'a telegram from  Mr.  W.  D.  Lighthall, secretin.-)* of the  union  of  Cauadiun   Municipalities,    requesting  the city to instruct its representatives  to oppose  tho Ottawa Electric Company's   bill,  which,  he stated  would  place cities in the  power of corporations.   Nothing could, at tlietinie.be  learned   about tho   measure,   so   the  mayor wired back that in the absence  of information the city could not act  in the matter.    A copy of the Toronto  ������������������Telegram" of February  1st throws  light ou the subject, as the paper contains the following paragraph  iu  its  parliamentary report:   "One of these  bills is none other than that Ottawa  electric measure, which nearly caused  a rebellion in the capital last session.  The Ottawa Electric Company, it will  he remembered, sought power to take  unto itself  competing  companies,   a  thing wliich Ottawa people recognized  afar off as the beginning of a  dangerous   monopoly.     "When   tl-.e   subject  came up in the. last parliament it was  found to have been  the subject of a  silent but powerful lobby.  Its passage  was all but assured.     So great,  however, was the outcry against it, and so  determined   the   opposition,   that at  last the promoters struck tlieir colors  and withdrew thc bill.   It has been iu  cold storage ever since,  and  now it  comes   in   under    the ' distinguished  sponsorship of 'Bill' Galliher, of Kootenay,   a   member   from   far   enough  away to scorn the dangers of fathering the measure.   Galliher briefly told  the liouse that the bill was  the same  this year ;is last, nor would he discuss  the question further, though Mr. Geo.  Foster said 'I was not here last year.'  The bill has a perilous course, to  travel."���������Nelson Tribune.  f?  ������*���������>���������--  ���������*0*������  ee*���������  <SS**���������  -o  ca**���������  ���������SC****-  ���������������������_-*.-  -as**-**-.  &>-'/  -as***-  aa*���������*  o__  ���������s*****-  v>~-  To wear good glasses.

Feb., 15.���������Again  has  lhat*,most remarkable  phenomenon ,of hundreds  of   tons   of  dead  herring lying at   the   bottom   of  the  water occurred in  the   channel near  Departure Bay, and there seems to be  absolutely no explanation for it except  that they came rushing up  in   such  tremendous    quantities    that    they  smothered with  the very density of  their own numbers.     That there was  a remarkable run of herring along the  channel   all day yesterday   and   the  preceding night is told by the fishermen who had their nets set, and- in  going out to gather thcm in had their  boats fairly lifted out of the water by  the bulk of herring underneath.  They  came rushing through the water like  the swish of escaping steam, seemingly gasping and panic-stricken, leaving  hundreds and thousands of dead  in  their train.     All  night and most of  yesterday this wus kept tip, und nt tlio  present time thc bottom of the ehan-  -nel-is-white.with dend__ish,_ heaped_up_  to a depth of two or three  feet.

Royce had never been sick beforo in  his life, and felt extremely surprised  tind disgusted aL not being able to  get up at once as if nothing hod  happened. He didn't consider that  most men, if they had been lieuton  about the head by u cudgel wielded  by a giant and stabbed in two  places, would probably have died;  he lay and tossed about in his narrow bed, and stared up at the wood-  sn ceiling ami at tho various articles  a_id contrivances of thc vnn for a  couple of days after his return to  consciousness, fuming at his weakness, and bored to death.  He had what some of us have not,  plenty of time to think in, and he  thought a great deal���������of his broken  career in the army; of his mother  who had declared him to be an outcast: of his brother, the philanthropist; of Irene, the lily maid, who  had wept when she parted with him,  and had given-him her.poor little  locket;  and,   lastly,   of���������Madge.  On the eighth day after ho had  been strickeu down by his murderous  assailants, confinement in-tho van  having become very irksome, he  managed to rise from his narrow  couch and  wash and dress himself.  For days it seemed to him, he hnd  not seen Madge; yet he had a dreamy  recollection of the graceful figure hov  erir.g near his couch while he was in  a half  doze.  Making his way from the van,  which for hours had been stationary, 1  he saw that the two wagons hnd  been halted in a beautiful glade,  some distance apart; and in the  space between thorn was a camp-  fire. The horses were browsing contentedly nearby.  Perceiving a female figure beneath  a tree near the edge of tho glade,  he made his way thither, and to his  joy -discovered that it was  Madge.  She was amazed on beholding him,  and softly reproached him for his  inrprudence in leaving tho van. Sho*|  was engaged in fashioning baskets  out of willow withes, a mass of  which  lay beside her. .  He took a seat near hcr, on a little hillock, and saw a book on the  ground. : Taking it up,? he was  surprised to find it a volume of  ���������Shakespeare.'- lie learned" from her  that she had bought it at Cumberleigh Fair, on the day before she had  first  seer.: hiin.  Tho book  w*as  open,   at  the     play  of*.. "Romeo and  .Juliet,"  and  it was  evident that    she    had  been reading  -that    tragedy,     at  intervals  of -.rest  from  her   labor.  The theme suited his mood at that  time, and to her attentive ear he  read   long passages  from  tho play.  To her  the subject was  divine,  and  her beautiful eyes wero riveted upon {  his  intellectual face as she  drank  in  thc   expressive  words  of the world's  grandest poet.  His voice was music in her ears.  Oli, what a poor hackneyed phrase  it is! Music! It was Life! The  mere fact of his being near her sont  a glow over her whole frame that  tingled to her finger tips.  She glanced at him from under hor!  long black lashes,  and in thc  graved   the     imago  of his  face,   his  stalwart  limbs,   deep,   deep  into  her  heart   of hearts.      She  had  adored  him   in   the  moment   of     his  great  strength   when  he  had     hurled  the  giant   to  the  ground;  she  loved  him now  for his very weakness.  For  sh* had held him on her bosom, had  ministered  to him   in  his  pain,     had  soothed him  in    the throes  of      his  delirium.  In a word���������and it is better told in  a word���������Madge, tho gipsy,, loved the  nojiorablo Royce Landon, second son  of the great Earl of Landon, as pas-  ci������������������������--������M������ly -������.-- truly-ns.t.he best,���������the  most cultured  woman can love.  And he was at her side reading tho  divinest, the most perfect of love  poems, and thc most easily understood.  If the god of Love himself had  .'.Iriven  to  devise a  deeper ami    pro-  foimdor  joy���������and   torture���������for  Madgo  Lee,   ho  could   not  have  succeeded.  She pictured herself as Juliet, him  as Romeo. It had be.cn love at first  sight with Juliet, it was love at  first sight with hor. Though Royco  had stumbled through only half tho  poem sh<_ guessed that Juliet would  lose her life for Romoo; and she,  Madge, was "filling���������what a poor  word!���������to tlic for him.  Her breath came in short, quick  gusps, her color roso and waned,  waned and rose. She longed to put  out ho*- fcand and touch him, only  tho *5eevo o fhis coat; to sob her  overbrimming heart      upon      his  breast.  But she sat motionless with downcast eyes, so still that Royce, absorbed in the play, stopped suddenly,  anid,   looking  up,   said:  "Gone to sleep, Mo������Jge?'!*  "No," sbe sakl: and her voice from  her effort at solf-repressior.i sounded  almost cold. "No, I am not  asleep."  "Jolly, isn't it?" hc said. "First  rato* chap, Shakopeare. Shouldn't  have minded being Romeo, though I  fancy he comes to an untimely end.  By tho way, Juliet was rather  young, wasn't she? Fourteen, you  know.    Oh, Lord how hungry I am!"  "I���������I forgot," sho said. "I let  you go on, forgetting that you aro  still  weak."  "Not a bit of it," he said, scrambling  to  his  feet.  "Sit still," she said in the tender  tonic of command sho had often used  in his moments of dilirium. "Sit  still, nn'd, I will bring you some-]  thing." ^  He watched her as she passed to  the van, and, half unconsciously  again, noticed the grace of her bearing.  "Poor Madge," he murmured.   '"By  And  well, and I mean to work for you.  Do you  hear?"...  He���������ho work for her!  Royco gathered some sticks, and  laid tho fire and lit it, and watchod  it with a keen arid delighted interest; it was thc flrst fire he had ever  "bossed," and presently to his unbounded delight, the wood caught  fairly alight, arid tho blaze rose  fiercely.  "Now then!" he cried triumphantly. "Bring out your tea kettle or  whatovor it Is!."  Mother Katie came forward lugging a great iron cauldron, and ho  took it from hor and attempted to  place it on tho hook which ' hung  from the three sticks forming a  tripod.  But in doing so ho staggered, and  a mist seemed to como before his  eyes.  Thon a hand fell upon his arm and  took the kettle from him, and a  voico,���������literally   sang���������in   his   cars:  "You are doing too much���������too  much."  Ho tried to drive the mist away,  but it would not go, ami all he was  conscious pf was a pair of strong  arms supporting* antl leading him to  his van.  He kr.iew it was Madge, and ns he  ascended tho stops to the van hc  murmured:  "Madge!

CHAPTER  VIII.  that  ofj George,  she moves  like a lady  she's only a gypsy!"  She returned in a few minutes with  a cup of milk which tasted rather  peculiar.  "What is it?" he askod, as hc  leaned back and sipped it.  "Brandy?"  "No; it is Mother Katie's cordial.  It is a secret known only to tlio  gypsies, and only to some of them."  "It is an elixir," he said, taking  another sip.  "A   what?"  He explained as well as lie could;  ho didn't know the full meaning of  the word himself.  "W'e only uso it ir.r very bad  cases," she suit!.' "But unless' a person i.s past nil help it does him  good,"  "Madge," ho said, "you���������and your  peoplo  have  uaved  my  lifo."  He   put   out  his  hand   as   he  spoke  a rod   touched   her   sleeve;   the      touch  seemed     to  penetrate  the stuff  warm   lier  arm.  He woke next inoniing after a long  sleep, and, with a delig'ht beyond  words, felt that somo of his old  strength had como back to him. The  sun was shining brightly through  the opon windows, tho birds wore  singing merrily; all nature seemed to  wolcomo him. back to life and health,  ami as ho dressed himsolf he began  to hum and whistle, for youth was  assorting itself and the blood was  coursing through his veins in its old  fashion.  Ho leaped from the van instead of  crawling down the steps as he ha*d  done yestei*day, and saw Mother  Katio and Lottie at tho camp firo.  They were preparing the breakfast  and Lottie   on hcr liands  and knees  stared up at him as usual.     Mother  Katie  smiled  and showed  her    teeth  in  greeting,   but  shook her head.  "You'ro up too early, my gentleman," she said rebukingly.  "Breakfast  isn't  ready  yet.   You*d  -bettor go back or we shall catch   it  finely if Madgo sees you."  "I'm going to got my own breakfast this morning, Mother Katie,"  ho suid. "What is it you want?  Wator?" n.nd ho strode up to a convenient  brook and filled  the can.  "Thoro you are, and now you  want some more wood for the fire,"  wid he went olT again and collected  an armful. "What are you going to  cook? .-'���������Hedgehog'."  "No such luck. There's some bacon  and some1 eggs���������they're for you, sir."  "Well, I'll cook them," he .-.aid,  determinedly. "But T. don't quite  know how. to do ..it. Where's . a.  saucepan?"  Lottie burst into a short. bark-  like laugh, and Mother Katie : gave  her  a  cut!  over  the  head.  "You mind your mamiers girl!"  she said.  "Saucepan,   bless  your   heart,    you  don't   want  any    saucepan.      That's  and I not  tho way  to cook  eggs!"  I     "Oh!"   said   Hovco   amaxedly.  "Yes,   there   is   no   mistake    about' thought,  it was,   but  1  beg your  it;     you      have   saved   my   life.       It! don.      IIow then?  wasn't   worth   saving."  "Anil,       you,      a     gentleman,   :say  that," she said,  in a low voice.  "A  gentleman!   Say  an   outcast���������*'.  Bofore   he     could    get  any   further  there   came   the  sound   of   footsteps,  aiwl  Lottie,   at   thc head  of     several! said,  burst  into  the glade. |     "All  lance ��������� other  gypsies  j She  hi  hand, but she dropped them instantly, and stared at RoyCe, as if., ho  were a freak of nature of the most  pronounced  type.  "I wonder if Lottie will over get  used to 'me! Some day her eyes  will drop out, and then she'll bo  sorry."  Lottie's features did not relax a  muscle, and she stared, if anything  a  littlo harder.  "Madge!" exclaimed Mother ICatic,  "you've  let  tho  fire  out!"  Madge sprang up, and hurried over  "I  par-  She scraped a hole under the fire  and placed the eggs snugly in it. and  then covered them over with the hot.  ashes  "Speak when you are spokon to,  Lottie!," she said with a certain  dignity which was not lost upon  Royco.   "Go  and get the milk.'**-  "This is not fitting work for you,  sir," she said slowly, and they  should not have let you do it.'*'  "Now, Madge," ho broke in, "that  is nonsense! You'vo all been waiting on ino for days, day and night,  and that was all right enough, because I didn't know it and couldn't  help myself," ho put in naively. "But  if you think, now that I am well  again, that I'm going to lie on my  back and lot you wait upon mo  you're mistaken. And you went all  the way to town���������lon iniles���������on my  account! What am I to say to you;  how am I to  thank you?"  "I don't want you to thank me,"  sho saitl in u low voico as she took  a puckct of coffee from hor pockot  and put it into a tin pot.  "And I suppose you got that for  mo?" ho said. "All right! Wo'll  sco! A red I'll trouble you to put  that pot down. "I'm running this  show this morning," and ho seized  tho coITeo pot and gently forced it  from hor hand. "Now you sit down.

But she sat     down  notwithstanding;  her pleasantly contemptuous retort.  "I don't know," he sakl, glancing  at her as he Hung thc pot over the  fire; and as he looked ho mentally  compared her with somo of tho ladies  of his acquaintance who felt exhausted after  a drive  in the park'.

Still worse   aro   tlic  thaws and rains and sun and winds  that     may  bc    expected     any  tiirao,  writes a correspondent.  Now, 1 am sorry that it scorns necessary to  write     on  a subject     like  this at this season  of tho year.      A  great many people who do not house  thoir tools as they should during tho  summer months will timl a place for  them somewhere' in  the  winter,    yet  thero is a class of farmers who mako  no pretensions  of .'storing away     all  their    machinery    even     in     winter.  Sometimes   the  excuse  is  jriven  that  there is not room or that the tools  would    he   in  tho  wav. Occasionally  this is true���������more often not. Sonic-  times it is .'a-'fairly well-to-do farmer; but mind you. he did not become  well-to-do  by    the practico,  but     in  spite  of it.      Often,   too.  there     are  .plenty    of  barny:   and    sheds  whore  all ages,  but^only one man,  abent | these things could  ho stored.

A renter'������������nS '"C* clmn"ca flom P-^lurngo to  "come in" in the fall, as is boing  done on our leading -dairy farms. It.  is the only wny whe& tho milk flow  must bc regulated to supply families  overy tiny in tho year. Tho mini  with no cartain customers to supply  but with n dozen cows, will probably find it mora profitable to do tho  hulk of his dairying in the winter  than in the summer. If his cows go  dry, it should bo in tho summer,  when thc farm hands nro busy with  the crops. In winter also it is much  easier to get help for ihe milking  of cows ana tlieir cure. The numerous grain farms have use for their  laborer principally in tho summer  timo, and in the winter tho extra  men have to hubt other jobs. It  thus arises that in tho fall men can  be secured at roasonable wages.  Cows" coming in fresh in the fall  havo no summer drouth to fnco.  They produco their cnives antl begin  milk giving on dry foetl, and there  is nothing to cause them to drop oft  in their milk tho wholo season  through, nor is thero any time when  thoy are changed from succulent food  to dry. When the chango comes in  tho spring, tho change i.s from dry  food to green, which docs not disturb their milk-giving functions, but  only stimulates thorn.  It is claimed by those that takti up  this method of producing milk that  thoy get a larger aggregate yield of  milk during the year than by any  othor way. This is. because with  spring-calving cows there is a great  falling off'in the.milk yield, when tho  a halter  in his hand.

No ono seemed' to take any notice  of Royco beyond a short, sharp  glance, and in silence they took tho  basins of broth which Mother Katie  ladled from the cauldron and handed to  them.

Most of thcm would need replacing or extensive repairs in fivo  years; while if kept housed continually while not iii use they could.last  fifteen or tworitv���������lot us say fifteen  to be liberal. This means, then a  loss ...of: $1,000 during the fifteen  years (two replacements)) from neglect to shelter the tools, or $75  annuailv. .'This would build a neat  little tool shed each vear or a large  ono bicnnally, or pay for a hired  man three or four months in the  year, or hire a girl:, for. your, overworked  wifo the entire summer.  This is a verv moderate .estimate'  We all know of men who lose more  than this by such neglect. If thoy  could bo mode to see the loss in  somo tangible form surely thoy would  not persist in their losing game.

There has always been a considerable divergence of opinion as to  the best age at which to breed tho  dairy heifer, not a few dairymen being of tl^o opinion that she would  become a better milker if bred at  an early" age. On this much-mooted  question Dr. Kitchen writes as follows:  "If this practico is carried out wo  have got to accept the small or  medium size cow. If * we brood late  tind less frociuontly, the cow becomes  larger, because the blood made in  thc minimal is directed'* to the undesirable parts during times when it  would otherwise bo directed in part  to tho udder. Furthermore, thc  nervous -system, which presides over  the distribution of the blood through  these undesirable parts, becomes enlarged during those periods to such  a degree that oven when maternity  ensues not so much blood is directed to tho wider' as .would' otherwise  havo boon tho case. Furthermore',' because wo wish to avoid tho tendency  of the nervous system to direct blood  "and energy to those undesirable parts  of the dairy cow, wo do not feed tho  animal too luxuriously during the  time she i.s not in milk. This prac.  lice also tends to prevent thc cow  from" beconfing"ir large' olio.  "Thoro is on almost general agreement of opinion that the right time  to breed for the first calf is at  about fifteen months of ago, this  period varying somowhnt 'according  to the sizo and vigor of the animal.  If an animal in sulllciontly vigorous  antl of a gootl enough sizo when  sho conies to this age, antl is not  bred, sho goes on to a beefy tendency more  or Ies!) fast  according to  nro out  thorn  Is no excuse.

Although mnn kiic-v*.' nothing ahout  it, there was a powerful disinfectant  being constantly manufactured in  the world's laboratory out of air  and water, nnd this substance  burned up tho refuse which man did  not know enough to destroy. This  purifier, which the chemists discovered only about sixty years ago, is  ozone. It is made up of oxygen  atoms in a modified combination,  and is sometimes callod active oxygen because of its strong oxidizing  powor. It is produced during thunderstorms by the action of the electrical discharges, and is also formed  during the rapid evaporation of  water. Sea air, therefore, contains  it in small amount, nnd also air  in the neighborhood ol salt-works,  whero a largo amount of water is  constantly being evaporated in order to get tho salt. It is,produced  artificially by passing an electric  spark through oxygon, or. better, by  the notion of a high-tension current  of electricity without sparking. It  is also made in decomposing water  by electricity. A mixture of ozone  and oxygen appears at the positive  polo.  Ozone has a peculiar odor (whence  its name, from a Greek word moaning to smell), which any one may-  have noticed who has been near  where a lightning bolt struck. It  enn also be snielled sometimes during a snow-storm. It is disinfectant  by reason of its active power of oxidizing many substances,. especially  whon they are moist, and so destroying their offensive and poisonous  character. It is especially efficacious in destroying the noxious emanations from putrefying substances  nnd thus acting as deodorizer.  When breathed, evon in small quantities, ozono is irritating to the  mucous membranes, and it is believed by some physicians that many  of tho respiratory troubles and the  ^ influenza that prevail in damp winter arc owing to a weakening' of  the resistant powers of the mucous  membranes tlirough tho respired oxygen.  4,^,^,.j,4^{.^4^.J,^,^���������>..j���������^.J^-"i'.l-i"l~i.  t f  Fashion    ?

There is  nothing moro valuable for- the toilet table than a solution of lemon  juice, a littlo rubbed Into.the liands,  faco and neck at night will not  only whiten, but soften the skin. A  paste of magnesia and lemon juico  upplied to the face and hands.upon  lying down for a fifteen minutes'  rest will bleach the skin beautifully.  For discolored or stained fingernails, a teaspoonful of lemon Juice  in ,a cup of soft warm water is invaluable; this is one of the very  best manicure aids. It will loosen  the cuticle from the fingernails as  well as remove discolorations. In  -- thc West Indies a lemon bath is almost a daily luxury. Three or four  limes or lemons are sliced into the  water and allowed to lie fou- half  an hour, in order that the juice may  bc extracted. A remarkable sense of  freshness and cleanliness is given to  thc skin.  Lemon juice in water is an excellent dentifrice. Lemon juice and  a pinch of salt will remove the most  obstinate of stains. Never throw  away lemon or orange peel for these  alone will often tako away stains.  TREATMENT OF STYE.  Thc lash is removed from the  centre of thc inflammatory area. Tho  swelling should be carefully touched  with tincture of iodin or pure carbolic acid. When there is any pus  it should be_roleased_b3^ji small._iu-  cisioiT Warm applications will lessen tho pain. A weak mercurial  ointment will generally cause the  disappearance of tho remaining  thickening of tissue. The diet-  should bo regulated whon there is  reason to believe that thc condition  is duo to general constitutional  atony.  SUPPRESS THAT COUGH.

Silks aro to bc much worn in tho  spring, and the tailored costume of  chiffon tntlcta may safely bo predicted. TntTctas will bo in tho load,  and theso will bc of the chiffon variety, and will como failles und lou-  islnes. Twilled weaves are to bo  a novelty of tho Coming spring and  summer, and silUe for shirtwaist  costumes will, mnny of them, show  the smart and favorite shepherd's  plaid.,  In lightweight cloths, too, manufacturers nre turning out for tlio  spring and summer trado the shop-  herd's  plaid  combinations.  Parisian separate blouses aro almost invariably white. One model,  seldom seen hero, is mado of supple  whito satin and lace, tho laco forming a deep yoko, unlinod, nnd to tho  yoko tho satin is gathered in fino  firil folds that aro hold in placo by  the girdle. At tho top thoy nro concealed by a foltl of the material. Tho  upper part of the sleeve is of the  lace or of shirred satin, but in either case it forma a long, jtlmost close  cap half way to the elbow, to which  the satin lower slcovo is attached  and shaped to the arms by the fine  shirs or tucks, ami above them, or  at the olbow, tho sleeve is allowed  to widen into a full puff, the lower  part being drawn into a deep cuff of  lace.  NEW VOICE EFFECT IN BODICES.  Satin, taffeta, and surah silks aro  all used for these white blouses, and  most of them aro mounted on a  tiglft fitting hip yoke of the lining,  which serves to hold tho bodice part  in place and docs away with unnecessary fullness. Ono of the newest  touches on theso separate bodices is  to have a yoke in the front only;  this is quite deep, is curved up' over  tho bust, but extends down tho center almost or quito to the girdle  lino in a sharp point.  The Louis XV. separate bodice is  really a waist, for it is fitted to  tho figure; there i.s a single dart on  each side of -tho .runt, or.'! a lace  j-iLot is used in frotvL. These aro  emboroidDred iu white and gold, or  in pastel tints, or in white alono.  Thc Louis XV. bodice has basques,  and these are also embroidered, as  aro the loose, coat shaped sleeves  that come a littlo below the elbow  and end in a deep w-ido cuff like a  part of the sleeve turned back, these  revcrs being elaborately" embroidered. This Louis XV. coatj bodice in  white velvet and appliqued with fine  embroideries and gild is a thing of  much beauty.  Lace veils,  especially   thc real  for  spring wear, will have large designs.  Bordered veils of all sorts are    distinctly smart in Paris although hero  they  are    less    worn.   Abroad      the  idea is to have the hat matched by  its veil,  and many of the now hats  shown    hero     have  veils   that   came  from     Paris    with  them,   each     hat  having its own particular veil.  BROWNS HARD TO WEAR.  Every season Paris puts out what  is termed a  "color card" indicating  tho hues that will be fashionable six  months later.   These cards come    in  millinery     shades as well as others.  That for    spring    is now here,    and  shows different shades of champagne,  green,  golden brown,  pink and  blue.  There are five shades of each  color.  Bluo occupies a subordinate position  but this  will  bo for  the fashionable  onlj-,  as the great mass of    women  are partial to blues of all sorts for  the spring and summer months,  and  with reason,   for  bluo  can  be    worn  by any ono if she takes pains to secure the right shade.   Brown, on the  Contrary,     and   also contrary to    a  popular   delusion,     is  not  becoming  to many,  and     ho  one woman    can  wear all shades and have them bring  out her good points.    Certain shades  of brown      kill    certain   colors      in  brown hair,  whilo others bring    out  the best tints;  and so-it goes.

Tho Duko of. Hamilton is one of  several poors who hove succeeded to  titles ugainst all human probabilities. His father, grandfather and  great-grandfather were all second  sons; his great-great-grandfather,  curiously named Anno in honor of  his -godmother Queen Anno, was a  third son; and tho nearest ducol ancestor of the little-known naval lieutenant Alfred Douglas Hamilton, who  was strangely destined to become  tho head of his houso, was born as  long ago as 11558���������when Oliver  Cromwell  was  still  alive.  A notable incident of the annual  review of the Emperor William's  Guards was the splendid courtesy of  the Kaiser to the young Grand Duchess of Mecklonburg-Schwerin, daughter of tho Duke of Cumberland.  When the Eighth Regiment of Grenadiers was marching pnst, tho Kaiser  galloped from whore ho was posted  and invited the Grand Duchess to  rido by his sido as he led tho rcgi  ment. past the Empress. On the  review field ho nominated hor as  joint chief with him of this famous  regiment.  It is a traditionary custom in tho  Marlborough family for each. Duko  to present a Blenheim spaniel to the  Duchess when she enters Blenheim  Palace for the first time as its mistress. The story from which this  custom had its origin is that during  tho Battle of Blenheim a spaniel followed at the heels of the groat Duko  throughout the day, never leaving  him until victory wns assured, and  the Duchess, the famous Sarah  Churchill, in memory of the incident,  forthwith udopted the spaniel as her  favorite dog.

Mine Amy Sherwin, the well-known  singer, who has toured all 'over'..the  world at one time or another, tells  an amusing story of .her experiences  in Tokio. The concert she gave there  was divided into two parts, the first  made up of general songs and the  second of operatic selections. :<The  first part passed very quietly, the  audience, which consisted of distinguished members of the Court and  society, receiving each item with a  chilling silence. However. Mme. Sherwin and her party comforted thepi-  eelves with the thought that .368-  was probably the aristocratic txtB-  tom ot Tokio, and did not allow  it to disturb them.

Norway's Sensible Law ��������� married  Men Have a Double Vote  in Belgium.  The Bill which is before the British  Parliament for tho prevention of  juvenile smoking cannot well be considered severe in its proposals by  those who nro familiar with similar  legislation in  other countries.  In Arkansas, for instance, so severely is smoking frowned upon by  the law thnt the penalty for selling  cigarettes even to an adult cannot  be less than $500, and may bc as  much as $5,000; while similar fines  hang over the head of a man who in  an oblivious moment offers a cigarette to a friend. In Norway tho  salo of tobacco in any form to boys  under sixteen" is absolutely forbidden  under heavy penalties; and the  stranger who offers a cigarette to a  boy, and the boy who accepts it,  are equally liable to  punishment.  In Heligoland no boy under the  age of sixteen may enter a public-  house for any purpose whatever; and  in the City of Roanoke,-'in Virginia,  woe to tho boy or girl under that  ago who is seen in the streets alone  after nine o'clock in the evening in  summer-time ���������and eight o'clock-in  winter; unless thoy have a written  permission from their parents or  aro going in. search of a doctor they  will be arrested, and the parents  must expect to pay  A HEAVY FINE.  Norway has recently passed a very  sensible law���������which might well bo  adopted by other countries���������to tho  effect that any woman who wishes  to wed must .first present to tho  authorities a certificate showing that  she is skilled iu the arts of cooking,  sewing,' knitting, and embroidery;  and until she can satisfy thorn that  she is an adopt in those domestic  arts she may, metaphorically, "whistle" for a husband. No wonder the  young men of Norway are jubilant.  Lucerne has upon its statute-book  a law. by no moans beloved of  ladies, which forbids the wearing of  hats more than eighteen inches in  diameter, and of foreign feathers and  artificial flowers; while even to wear  ribbons of silk nnd gauze-a license  of forty pence a year must bo taken  out. Germany has an excellent method of her own for dealing with  brutes who beat their wives.

The fascination of diving is no  doubt greo.t, although it is difficult  to parallel tho case of a female diver  of thirty goal's ago. This woman acquired the art from her husband,  who was a diver in the Santa Barbara pearl fisheries, and whon the  man was suffocated in his diving ur-  mor 'his wife courageously took his  place. She used to say that there is  a fascination about tho. diving business which is stronger than all its  dangers, and this fascination acted  powerfully upon her. She was ablo  to remain down as long as any of  the men. Once she was almost *suf-  focated through a breal? in tho air  supply, and when she was dragged  to the surface her face was black  and stained wilh^blood, which hnd  started even from hcr eye-sockets.  But sho only missed two days' work  and then resumed hor strange calling.  Minard's Liniment Relieve; Neuralgia  HABIT'S  CHAIN.  Certain      Habits,     Unconsciously  Formed and Hard to Break.  An ingenious philosopher oslimatcs,  that tho amount of will power necessary to break a life-long habit would,  if it could bo transformed, lift a  weight of many tons.  It sometimes'requires a higher do-  gree of heroism to break tho chains  of a pernicious habit than.to lead a  forlorn hope in a bloody; battle. A  lady writes from an Indiana town:  "From my earliest childhood I was  a lover of coffee. Before I was out  of my toons I was a miserable dyspeptic, suffering terribly at times  with rny stomach."  "I was convinced that it was coffee  that was causing thc trouble and  yet I could not .deny myself a cup  for breakfast. At the ago of 36 I  was in very poor health, indeed. My  sister told me I was in danger of  becoming a  Coffee drunkard.  "But I never could givo up drinking coffee for breakfast although' it  kept me constantly ill, until I  tried Fostum.

Tho lawyer insisted on the grocer  producing his book, and reluctantly  tho plaintiff sent for it. The lawyer  scanned its entries with a grim  smile.  "You appear to enter your customers under curious names���������or misnames," he said. "Who, for instance,   is   "Mrs.   Nasty  Cat'-?"  "Thnt ain't got nothing to do with  the case," said the plaintiff, casting  a nervous look around tho court.  "And who aro 'Ginger Whiskers,'  'Blue Nose,' and 'Old pompous'?"  asked the lawyer, shooting a swift  glance at the threo justices on tho  Bench, one of whom glorified in a  fiery rod board; the second had a  chronically-inflamed nasal organ, of  a decidedly bluish tint; whilst tho  third was renowned for his pomposity. All threo, too, were known to  deal with the plaintiff, though the  indignant looks thoy now cast upon  him augured ill for the continuance  of thoir custom.  Tho Court looked at the Bench  and tittered.  "And who," went on the lawyer,  mercilessly, "is the customer whom  you have entered in your books as  'Hungry Shark's  Old Fright1?"  The look of a man who is at last  having a littlo of his own back came  into tho~ grocer's unhappy face.  "That,"  said    ho,   . readily,   seeing  that "ho might as well bo hung for a  sheep     as     a  lamb,   "is    your wife.  You'll seo sho owes mo $60."   ^   JOHN HENRY KNEW.
