The Gypsy's Saerifiee 1  ? A   SECRET   REVEALED ������  4 *.{_..*.M..������..j..M_l...l..j^^^  CHAPTER NIX.  A faint cry of alarm rose from  Kludge's lips. Seymour sprung forward  with  something  like an* outh.  "Madam, mother: Whut! Vou accept this gypsy girl, thi.s low woman  us your (laughter'.' Vou .will take her  to .Monk Towers?" he exclaimed furiously.  "I invite my .son and his wile.  Ves!" she said with cold hauteur,  "it   is her place���������it  is  iny duty."  "Ves, yes!" murmured Irene, softly.  "Great heavens, you must ue  jn.'uJ!" exclaimed Seymour. "Takej  hcr to live with you���������to Mon1* Towers! This girl of whom you know']  nothing but  what is bad!   You  can't!  ingly, anxiously. "To leave your  own people, to go among strangers,  who���������who���������God forgive thcm���������look  down upon yo'.i! H is a great, heavy  trial! Can .you do it? Not for my  sake���������you shall not tliink of mo! I  am happy, I havo said so, and you  know that it is true. Think, dearest."  "1 will go!" she punted. "Not  now," she gasped; "in a little lime!  I must have time to get used���������to  prepare!   But I  will go!"  Irene drew hack. Seymour cursed  and swore under his breath; and  countess alone remained calm, and,  if  it  may  be said,  almost  neutral.  "Vou have decided,"  she said  in a.  be  serious,   mother?   What  will     the! 'ow voice.    "You  have decided right-  world, your friends, neighbors say?  For you can't hope .to keep hcr past  life a secret! You will be shunned as  a leper, .the'Towers as a lazar-house!  .Keep away from me you���������you ruflian,  or I'll���������I'll shoot you!" lie snarled  at Uoyce, who had moved toward  him, an ominous light in hi.s eyes.  "Consider, mother! For heaven's  sake considor!" lie went on breathlessly. "You can't���������you can't, do  this thing! Forgive him, if you like.  Tt���������it is our duty to forgive," a  hypocritical expression struggled into  his face, "but keep them, both of  them, at arm's length! Make them  an allowance, give them enough to  start them somewhere in the colonies; do anything but acknowledge  tin's girl���������a gypsy!"  The countess listened wilh proudly  averted eyes, as unmoved as a rock  against which a fretful tide beats.  "If you have no regard for yourself and position, you might ai least  think of Irene. This girl, though sho  may be Roycc's wife, is no (it companion  for Irene."  As if in denial of the assertion,  Irene glided forward and took  Madge's hand.  Madge started and trembled, antl  her dark eyes rested on Irene's with  a  wondering,  troubled gaze.  "I am resolved," said the countess,  coldly. "Nothing jou can say will  move me, Seymour. I ask lioyco to  bring his wife home. It is for him  to decide whether he will do so or  not."  "No, mother, it is for her."  Mndge looked from the countess to  Irene, ancl thou at Uoyce. She was  trembling like a le>af under the conliict that was raging in ber mind,  lior   heart.  '.'.What shall 1 do? What shall I  do?'' broke from her white lips.  She saw what thc oiler meant,  whal ihe refusal would result in. If  .-he refused, ir" she decided to remain  with her people, a gypsy still, then  she must drag Uoyce down to her  level and keep him there. If sbe accepted���������she could not realise tbe ordeal before her, she was too ignorant of the world to do that; but shoj  could form a vague idea of the  troubles that awaited hcr in the new-  sphere into which she would pass.  ."What-shall'I'do?* she cried mentally.  They all waited, every eye fixed  upon her. Royco put his arm round  her.  "Iio as you wish, Madge," he said.  "I'o not consider anyone, anything,  but yourself, dearest. I am happy,  shall be happy as I am, in the  camp  here."  "Yes,"     said     Seymour       eagerly;  "that's true, at any rate.    Your hus-) them  band   will   be far     happier   with  chosen    companions;    better let  remain,   my good  girl."  Madge looked    at   him for an  slant,  then  her  lips opened and  was about to speak  thc words:  "I  will not go!"  Iy. If you had chosen to remain, to  keep him here vvith you, I should  have known that yo,u did not love  my son."  "Spare her, mother, spare her!  groaned Koyce, with mingled grief  and indignation. "You forget thnt  she is a woman like yourself. Another such speech, such taunt, and  she shall  not go!  Even  now������������������"  "No, no," murmured Madge,  "she's right. I���������I understand. Ask  her  to  give  ihe  time���������a  few  days���������a  week   "In a week. I have only one more  word to suy. When you come to  Monk Towers with���������your husband, it  will bo as the wife of Uoyce Landon,  the son of the Karl of Landon. You  will leave your past������behind you. No  one will remind you bf it, np ono  shall cast it in your teeth. As fains forgetfulness is possible it shall  bo forgotten. The future rests with  you,  not me.   Bo you understand?"  Madge raised her head from  Uoyce's breast and looked at the  proud face.  "Yes, I understand," she said vvith  a long breath. "I will do my���������my  best not to disgrace him! Be���������be  kind and help  me!" *v  "Oh, lot ,us go now! Oh, poor girl,  poor girl!"  "Yes, we will go," snid tho countess. She held out her hand to  Madge, and Madge put hers into it  shrinkiiigly; then the countess extended a hand to Uoyce. . lie took  it and pressed it, too agilnted to  speak.  She   looked   into   his  eyes   with     a  touch of u mother's yearning in hers.  '"God    forgive     you,    Uoyce!"   she  said     in     a   low  voice,   ancl     turned  away.  Seymour stood glaring from one to  tho other in speechless fury for a  moment or tvvo; then his face changed slowly, a.s if the full aspect of the  case were breaking in upon him, and  things were no so bad, after all, as  thpy   might   have  been.  "At any rate the hound is married!" hc muttered. "Married, and  so  out of my  way!"  He stepped forward and drew the  clonk round the countess, ant! would  have done the same office for Irene,  but she drew back. Then as he offered his arm to the countess he  took off his hat to Atadgc with an  exaggerated  courtesy.  "Good-night���������Mrs. Landon!" hej  sa ill  "It is only a little way to the  carriage, madam," murmured Irene.  "Sit cm this fallen tree and re"St a  minute."  The countess sank down. As sho  did so Irene started and looked  round.    Tho  countess  glanced  at  her.  "It is nothing, madam," said  Irene. "I heard something move  among  the  bi'ack'en,  a  rabbit "  Tiie countess sat perfectly still for  a few minutes, then she rose and  took  Seymour's arm.  "I nm stronger now," she said  with  a  sigh.  As they moved away something  that vvas much more like Uncle .lake  than a rabbit raised its head from  the thick brake, and crouching as  low  as   possible  followed   tliom.  Cautiously as bo moved it was  evident that he was in a stato of  great excitement: his bunds tvvichnd  as they clutched the fern stalks while  he drew himsolf along like a annkc,  and his sinister eyes shone like n  couple of beads. Every now nnd  then ho raised his head nn'd peered  at  the  three,   but  with  an uncertain  "Well, well, well!" he said with a  kind of chuckle. Here's a pretty kettle of lish!"  Uoyce opened his lips, but before  lie could speak Uncle Jake went on,  as if he were repeating a hardly  learned  lesson:  "No use, my dear boy, no use!  Uncle Jake is up to snulT. He's behind   thc  scenes,  and  knows  all!"  "What do you want? What i.s it  you  know?"  "Now, now!" remonstrated Uncle  ���������lake, shaking his forefinger at him  with shy playfulness, "elon't get. on  your stilts my boy. It's no uso, I  tell  you.   I'm  posted!"  He drew a little closer, but still  kept out of the reach of Roycc's long  arm, and vvith an unctuous leer and  wink whispered huskily:  "My dear children,! was in the little church at Crosshy this morning���������  always fond of a church you know.  I saw the door open and just stepped  in. Nice place to have half an hour's  snooze. Hut I didn't get a nap this  morning,   Mr.   .lack.

Presently   they  emerged     fronv wedding-ell.   Madge?  the wood, and Uncle .Jake, keeping  abreast of them, saw-, for the first  time, their faces in the full light of  the moon.  As he did so, notwithstanding all  his caution and hitherto secrecy of  movement, a cry ncurly burst from  him���������a cry of amazement as his eyes  restod upon the white, weary face of  the countess, nnd of bevvi.clerment as  they  turned 'quickly., to  Seymour.  He lay among the undergrowth' at  the edge of the wood, watching them  until thoy had crossed the strip of  plain and entered tho carriage. Then  as it drove off, he rose, but, still  keeping in the shadow of the trees,  dashed his hand to his forehead, and  swore excitedly.  "Jt isn't drink, and I'm not off  my head!" he muttered almost fiercely, and yet with an undercurrent of  exultation in his" voice. "I'm half  drunk, I know, but I'm not so bail  as that! It's her face I'd swear! I'd  know it among a thousand. A thousand. A million! Anywhere, any  time!  But he���������who ia he?  He dashed his hand across his forehead again with savage impatience.  "My memory's failing rne! I'm  getting stupid and (liickhcn'dcd. Who  is it? Now���������lot me���������think." He sat  down at the foot of a tree, and  stared before hiin in--the direction the  carriage had taken, and evidently  badgered and spurred his soaked  brains in the effort to recall some  face connected with his pnst-Hho faco  Seymour  resembled.  "Lord,  it's as if I'd known him aU  my  life!"  he muttered angrily,  "'and!  Ceylon Tea==BIack, Mixed or Green  Lead Packets only.

In dairies where sanitary milk  that docs not sour lor several days  is produced, the cow's udeler is always washed and dried immediately  before she is milked: the -milker then  washes hi.s hands, puts on a white  suit and milks info a covered milk  pail provided vvith only a small  opening  in  the cover  to  milk into.  Careful work of this kind protects  the milk from many impurities and  it increases thc consumer's desire for  more milk when he knows that sucli  precautions are taken against impurities getting into the milk. Many  people undoubtedly would want milk  to drink if they felt a greater confidence in the purity ol tho milk than  they now have. Their knowledge in  a general way of the barn conditions  where many cows are milked is- not  apt to increase their desire for milk.  Some experiments made by Professor Beach in Connecticut showed  that the- amount of dirt found in  milk when covered pails are used  at milking time was about one-third  as much as was found when milking  was done in an op-m pail. The milk  pail cover excluded sixty-three per  cent, and thc strainer used alter  milking- less than forty-soven por  cent, of thc dirt found in the milk  when covers and strainers were not  used. ���������  Bloody milk and that from unhealthy cows ought not to he used at  any time. A case is on record where  the diseased hoof of n cow caused a  loss of about S18 per day at a  cheese factory. The trouble was  located by means of the Wisconsin  curd test ancl when Lhe milk of this  sick cow was kept out the quality of  the cheese made at the factory wns  as good as it had been and the loss  of SIS  per dny wn.s stopped.  Milk ought not to bc used until  about six days after calving and  somo authorities prefer not to use  it for  tliirty  days  before calving.  Persons having any contagious disease ought not to milk or handle  milk for others, and overy milker  oug-lit to carefully wash and - dry  hih hands beforo he begins to milk.  Always milk vvith dry hands. This  is so self-evident that further explanation ought not to be nacossnry.  CAUE OP THE MILK.  Imimudintely after milking strain  the milk through four thicknesses of  cheese cloth or one of flannel. The  straining ought lo be done outside  the stable and not behind the cows.  As soon as strained, cool the milk  quickly.to near 50 degrees V. Sudden cooling helps to preserve thc  milk and gives it a veiy acceptable  flavor under nomihf conditions. Failure to cool at once after milking is  the cause of a'grca. deal of sour  mi lift" .i  \ Never mix 'warm milk with cold  milk, hut cool both before mixing  them. Warm milk will absorb odors  more readily tlm.-i eeil>r~and the  growth nnd development of bacteria  is checked by keeping the milk at a  low   temperature.  .Some sort of .-icr.iiion is vcry  beneficial to either milk or cream. Tt  helps the flavor of these products  and if the aernlor is thoroughly  clean no harm can come from mixing milk with pure nir. The aeration must be dono in a clean place,  free from bad odors and dust as the  spreading of milk over so much surface as Is necessary with mnny aerators subjects it to any contamination which 1)10 surrounding - air may  contain.  Aeration will aid in removing some  feed odors from the milk and it is  an easy menus of chilling it immediately after milking.  There are three methods of aeration now in use to some extent.  First, those which.. spread thc milk  out in thin sheets ns it flows over  ihe surface or divides the milk into  runny fine . streams as it passes  through thcm. .Second, an excellent  aeration is obtained by passing the  milk through a separator. Tho  cream and skim milk are mixed together "s they come from the separator by turning I.he spouts of the  separator so lhat the skim milk and  cream' will (low togother Into one  can. By this process a certain  amount of matter which is in suspension in the milk is also removed and  this together with the dirt in the  milk accumulates in the separator  bowl. Third, a certain amount of  aeration may be obtained by dipping the imilk or stirring it with  a long bundled dipper. This is  soniel lung every milk producer can  niTord to do. The large cans of milk  are commonly set into a tank of  eold water after milking and the  milk is dipped and stirred occasionally until it is thoroughly cold;  A grent many kinds of milk aerators are on the market niwl probably  thn use of any- one of tbem is beneficial to  tho miik.  Aeration" is the only preservation  that is permitted by law to be used  in Wisconsin milk; the chemicals advertised for this purpose are injurious to the consumers' health and the  addition of any of theni tb milk,  cream or butter in Wisconsin is forbidden.  If milk is well aerated and thoroughly cooled, it can be safely hold  in cans tightly covered, but when it  is not aerated tho covers ought not  to be put on the cans tightly until  it is thoroughly cooled. When warm  milk is tigiitly covered it has a  tendency to  develop what  is called  "SArOOTUKUED"   ODOU.  A great variety of odors arc more  or less common to milk. Among  them may be mentioned feed odors,  barn odors, eowe'y odors and kitchen  odors. The feed odors come mostly  from musty eir decayed feci, pasture  weeds, wild onions, turnips, rape,  silage,  etc.  The feeding of sound silage will  not necessarily contaminate tho  flavor of milk. .SuJlleient proof of  this is the fact that silnge is boing  constantly fed to cows that are producing some of thc highest priced  milk iu the country and that which  is much sought for by hospitals because of its purity and its wholesome flavor.  The objection or silage feeding in  the majority of cases comes froni, the  poorly ventilated stables. Milk will  absorb the silage odor if it is present in tho barn, arid for this reason it is necessary to have tho silo  closed except when silage is being  taken from it at feeding time. AU  tho waste silage that, is not eaten  by the cows should bc removed and  not left in the mangers or under the  cows for bedding. When this is allowed the air will be so lillod vvith silaga  odor that it will be absorbed by the  milk nt milking time. No trouble,  however, will" come from silage odor  when the barn is'clean and well ventilated and . tho silage is fed after  milking." .  Turnips and rape may also bc fed  without transmitting their characteristic odor to tho milk if fed alter  milking nnd in not too largo quantities at first.  The objectionable flavors in milk  that come from thc cows eating  musty feed, pasture weeds, garlic ond  wild onions, are not so easily gotten rid of as the silage odor and  such feeds should  be avoided.  The cowey, barn nnd kitchen odors  sometimes so prominent in milk may  bo removed to a certain extent by  aeration, but prevention is preferable to a cure in such cas-es. Keep  thc milk out of these places anel give  it a chance to live by itself whero  it vvill not bo contaminated by unprofitable  neighbors.  When cans of milk arc drawn any  distance to a railroad station or to  a factory they sliould be covered  with a piece of canvas in order to  protect them from dust aind mud as  well as from heat nniPcold.  Tf skim milk is returned in the  cans to the farms such milk should  be emptied out of' the cans so soon  as they reacli tho farm, because' of  the difficulty there is in washing the  sour odor from cans if the skim milk  is allowed to stand in them until it  becomes sour. Washing the milk  cans at the. creamery and returning  them empty to the farmers is an excellent practice.

Lady Henry Somerset   Writes   Entertainingly About  the  Csarina.  JMany happy girls in England and  America silently envied the woman  who was the centr-.������ yf admiration  and adulation in the .sunny May of  18PG, when 1'rinress Alix of Hesso  wa.s crowned impress of Itussia.  Thore has always been a deep interest in this country in the young  Czarina, lirst, because her mother,  l'rince.ss Alice, was, among all tho  Queen's daughters, held in the highest esteem; and because there wus a  romantic iransiion from the . frugal  surroundings of her early life to the  subsequent magnificent of the perilous  throne which she ascended.  The Cxarinn has always been attached to England. She was brought  up Iiy an English governess and  nurse, and she early imbibed English  views  and  customs.  When hcr lirst child wns born sho  insistod on. fulfilling, the duties of a  nurse, and, although this vvas opposed to tho Uussian royal etiquotte,  she carried hor point. Catherine tho  Great of Kussia tells us in her memoirs, with no little bitterness, how  her baby was taken awny from h'or  a lew hours after its birth, and she  was not allowed to see it again for  months, hut. whilo in her own caso  she censured the custom, she followed  it by taking her son's wife's baby  away, and at once gave it a separate establishment. Early in hor  married life the Czarina showed her  determination to put a stop to  smoking among her ladies. Russian  women nearly all smoke, but tho  Czarina hinted at reform by requesting that no lndy should approach  her with the hoir, breath or clothing  tainted  by smoke.  THE KING'S MESSENGERS.

Now Paris is*.abolished from their  list, despatches for tho French metropolis .;.; will travel liko ordinary  parcels to Dover, whore they vvill be  met by an a (Tidal from thc British  Embassy at Paris and taken on.  Instead of tho Paris route, the  Oreat Eastern Hailvyay has been  chosen by on ollicial from the  Britis-h  Empire.  On the Tuesday of each week a  messenger travels by T-farwich' and  the Hook of Holland���������one week to  Constantinople, and the next week  to'St.  Petersburg.  On the northern route only Berlin  and St. Petersburg receive personal  calls from the messenger: ho is met  nt Brussels by Legation officials,  who relieve him of his charge for  that city:  On the alternative route the messenger visits Berlin, Viena, Belgrade,  Sofia and Constantinople personally  and drops his despatches on liis way  for The Hague,' Darmstadt, Munion  and Bucharest.  Some  power*  pain is    the    price, of  any  THE  I'MUST INFLUENCE  which 'dominated her was that of  Father John, of Kronstadt, and with  his help and guidance she placed herself at the head of many of the charitable , bodies in-the empire, and it  was pathetic to know thnt she sent  for" all thc best known works on tho  English poor laws, in order to study  how some betterment among tho  people could bc arrived at.

For len  years he had prayed unceasingly for  an heir to thc Uussian throne. A  crop of superstitions had grown  round the fact that the prayer remained unanswered. The ominous  circumstance of thc disaster which  happened nt the Czar's coronation  was looked upon as an evir prophecy  as to the approaching end of the dynasty. The Czarina was unpopular,  and was unable to take hcr right  place at the head of Uussian society.  But in August Inst the child so eagerly awaited was born, and men  paused in their daily toil to listen  to the  ltflAEOF'THE   CANNONS,.  ! and  counted  the shots  a.s  they     announced, from the    fortress    of     St.  Peter and Ht.

Thc Czar received  nn ovation when he appeared in  public, and flowers were strewn before him, anil shouts of joy wero  raised. The churches were tilled vvith  thankful worshippers, and the pathetic devotion of the country to its  ruler was never more manifest, But  with a change in her destiny there  came also a change in the Empress's  outlook. I have been told on good  authority that since the birth of tiro  boy the Empress hus become moro  Uussian than the - Russians. When  her sister wished her good luck on  the birth of the heir, she said, "He  will bc a Russian and a HomanorT,"  and if appeared as though the fact  that she had become the mothei" of  the heir to the Russian throne outweighed the liberal sentiments which  had hitherto characterized her.  It has been truly said :thp.t. there is  ono woman living who can perhaps  'sympathize''.'with' the 'Czarina at this  moment more than aiiy *o������hcr in tho  world, the woman who stood at tho  windows of the Tuilleries, and ivat-'  ched the wild mob surging toward  the palaco on the last day of the' empire.

There is no woman who does not,  secretly or avowedly, desire to bc  beautiful, to preserve what good  looks she may possess and, if possible, to enhance her charms by  such adventitious aids as may conduce to the desired end. Yet, singularly enough, not one woman in ten  goes to work the right way- nbout it.  Pretty new clothes, cosmetics and  the like, nre but too frequently relied upon to do the work.  IA few simple rule's aro laid down,  which every woman would do well  to lay to heart. They arc culled  beauty's seven nurses.  Don't forget that the nurses of a  woman's beauty are soven���������fresh air,  sunshine, warmth, rest, sleep, food,  and whatever stirs lhe hlood. be it  exercise or enthusiasm.  Don't neglect sleep. You can sleep  yourself into good looks. A long  nap and a hot bafli will make any  woman moro attractive, and lift  years from her shoulders.  Don't eat when tired, and don't  work when tired. It is a mistake,to  work when not in fit condition���������bad  for the work and worse for you.  Don't miss your 'beauty sleep.'    It  is a mistake to go  to  bed late     at  night, rise at daybreak, and imagine  that every hour taken from sleep   is  ��������� an hour gained.  Don't give unnecessary time to a  certain established routine of housework, when it could be much more  profitably spent in rest and recreation.

Toothache is often relieved by,rinsing the tooth' and gums with warm  strong salt and water.  Swollen face as the result of ' a  cold or decayed tooth, should 'be  fermented with hot water, or milk-,  and milk-and-water.  Tale People should not always resort to Iron preparations as n. remedy. The system needs to be prepared before thnt drug can be absorbed.  Colic is a painful spasmodic contraction of the muscles of the stomach. Hot fomentations. freely  sprinkled with laudanum, give e'reat  relief.  This cures hysteria.���������To remove  the tendency of hysteria, plenty of  active exercise- should be taken. Rise  early, take regular meals, have  nourishing food, variety of scene,  and cheerful  company.  That sinking .sensation is due to  tho effects of indigestion, grief, or  nervous depression from some cause  or other acting upon the large, -sympathetic nerves. Stimulants should  ���������bo_avoided7~and~-grcnt���������care" exercised  ns to diet.  When baby screams it is invariably an indication that thc child is  suffering from pain in some particular organ of the body. It ls generally traceable to some digestive disturbance, and is tho effect of dyspepsia.  Slight colds, common at this season of the year, should be promptly  dealt with, in order to avoid more  serious trouble. Put thc feet iu hot  water, take ten era ins of Dover's  powder, a large cupful of hot gruel,  and go straight to bed. If these  measures are insufficient, remain in  bod next day, and tako fifteen to  twenty drops of spirit of camphor on  a lump of sugar every four hours.  Mothers should know that convulsions iu children are usually the result of brain irritation, caused by  teething, by indigestible food, or by  fright, anger, ��������� and grief. The child  should bo immersed in a warm bath  up to its neck, and kept there for a  quarter of an hour, with cold "cloths  npplTcd to its head, then wrapped in  a wauiiied blanket and put to bed. A  teaspoonful of enstor-oil should" bo  given as soon as the child can swallow.  "I would , advise mothers to stop  dosing their littlo ones with nauseous castor oil and soothing stuffs,,  and use only Dnby's Own Tablets."  This is tho advice of Mrs. Joseph  E. -Harley, of Worthington,*'Ont.,  who has proved tlie Tablets, the best  medicine in the woi Id for the troubles that afflict young children. Mrs.  Harley adds:���������"My Pttle one had  no other medicine but the Tablets  since sho was two months -old, and  they havo kept her the picture of  good health." These Tablets are  good for children of every age, and  speedily cure all stonnach anil bowel  troubles, break up colds, prevent  croup, expel worms and allay the  irritation of teething.

W. G. Mackenzie. Free exposure  to air is the best antipyretic. Sweating at night, formerly so common a  symptom, usually ceases. Colds are  practically unknown among patients  leading an open-air life. Secondary  infection, on account of the comparative freedom of the air froni nm'cro-  organisms, is much loss likely to occur. Tolerance of outsido air is very  quickly established, and no one who  has tried the open-air life will willingly go back to the former conditions of stuffiness. I havo never  seen any. one n������ade worse by-exposure  to fresh air. Evoa during a thick  London fog patients get on better  lying in bed on a balcony or in  rooms with windows wide open and  a good fire burning than when attempts are made to .shut out the fog  by keeping the windows shut.

THE CZAR IN PROVERB.  His Luck, -   His   Power   and     Eia  Limitations.  In a recent number of The Paris  Figaro wero found collated some  characteristic Russian proverbs that  regard the Czar and his position, and  find much current application:  "When the Czar spits into a dish,  it breaks into pieces for very pride."  "The crown-does not protect    the  Czar from headache."  "Even  tho lungs  of  the  Czar cannot blow out tho sun."  ���������"The���������Czar's���������back,-- too,���������worild  bleed  if  it   were     gashed With     the  knout."  "The Czar even covered with boils  is declared to  be in good health."  "When the Czar rides behind a tired  horso every step is charged as a  league."

Garriani's spells soiled talileclotlis,  via ordinaire, untl the smell of yesterday's cooking. H you ns!c at Giuliani's for tlie daily paper, they will  bring you "The Petit 1'uiisioii," uml  if you complain Antonio, the head  waiter, suave and unshaven, will  apologise, anil bring in exchange "Kt  Jmparcial."  Hut it was an English newspaper  lhat wus spread before the elder of  the two men. It was the foreign  page that lay under his impatiently  drumming fingers, and heavy black  headlines, that stood out from the  sheet that overstood the mutter that,  filled his mind.  Leonine of head, Paul Kressler hud  never been ti handsomo man. His  was the face that men call "striking." He had the eyes of the dreamer, and the square jaw of the tyrant,  ns befits the Nihilist who seeks tho  idyllic through ways of violence. His  companion, squat of figuro, fat of  face, pufTy of eye, yet comfortable  withal, was of the class that sees in  Nihilism, Anarchism, Socialism, and  any ism that is opposed to established law .and .constitutional'practice, a mcans.to personal end. Such  men have no cause���������they have only a  p.-.irpose.  "You are mad, my friend," ho wa.i  saying; and his tone was almost  Jovial. "There is nothing to be gained, unless yo.\i see in this a means of  regaining your position."  Paul Kressler gave a hitter laugh.  ".Something for something, eh?  That's your creed, Von Aruslcich.j  Have I not given sufficient proof of  my disinterestedness?"  "Vour pardon, baron. I did not  mean- " muttered the other, averting his eyes.  "Five years ago, what was I?'  continued Kressler. "Captain of the  Petrositis with an admiral's flag Tor  the reaching. To-day I am���������what I  am���������exile, suspect, Anarchist, what  you  will!"  "Vou have made great sacrilices,"  cooed the German, flicking thc grey  ash from his cigar.'  "And you  think,  having made  the  surrender, I want to go hack on tho  principles that are\so dear to me���������"  "To us," corrected    his companion  comfortably.  "Jt is because I love Russia,  hate its Government���������because I  the land as I hate its lords!"  "But the Czar will never "  Kressler waved an impatient hand.  "That remains to be seen; I can  but try. Look at this���������look at this!'  He brought 'down his great fist with  a crash on the'table, and Antonio,  dozing at the servery, woke with a  jump. "Can I read day by daj' such  things as these? Can I seo tho glory  of Kussia pass away beforo my eyes,  and never lift my hand to strik'e a  blow?"  The  German   rose,   an'd   tho     other  followed suit.  "Then you persist?"-  There was a sneer in  the question.  '���������Yes"���������quietly.      Then,      with     an  outburst  of that fiery passion    lhat  hod  made him  at  once  the  J05-  and  terror  of  the  Brotherhood,   hc cried:  "Xot for the    Czar,  I tell you���������not  for  the cursed bureaucracy���������not     for  the  cr.'.iel  little  devils  that  sit     behind     desks,  and send  innocents    to  damnation;    but   for    Kussia!      You  hear?     Por    Russia,  the land,     and  the people���������for the fatherland!"  The German bit the end from a  fresh cigar,0 and balanced a silver  matchbox on two fingers.  "Some will call you patriotic," he  said     slowly���������"some   may. call     you  quixotic.   As   for  me "���������  "Vou think I am a fool," rejoined  the  other  quickly.  "Ach, Cottl" said the little fat  man admiringly. "You are thc occult!"  They   stepped    out    into  the     thin  drizzle    that     fell    on      the   London  streets,  and the Gcrrajin_wcnt__tp_his  ===clulJ7='SiKl'  frown, and ho sat for a moment silent; then he started forward, us  though on some sudden impulse, and,  seizing a pen, wrote a few words on  a printed slip.  Ho rcarf it over carefully, anil fixed  a tiny red seal to the corner of the  document.  "Take this," ho snid tersely.  I'ho chief took the paper, and  glanced nt it. He expressed no surprise, nor anything more than a  casual  interest.  "You understand, monsieur?" said  the Secretary, pointing his remarks  with u white forefinger. "Paul Kros-  r.ler is to bo allowed to return to  Russia. He is to go on his wny unmolested. You will arrange thnt ho  is  watched   carefully?"  Tlie policeman smiled, us at nn unnecessary question.  "Vou intend that he-shall receive  hi.s commission as a nnvnl captain,  ami leave immediately for Vladivostock,"  was  the  quiet  reply.  And even the policeman, hardened  hs he wa.s to the eccentricities of his  Government, raised his eyebrows as  he left the room.  II.  So  it came about that  when  Paul  When tho stars were struggling  through the mist that lay on the  waters, the Riga slipped from her  mooring, and, passing- between two  cruisers allure with the naked lights  of working- engineers, glided silently  to sea. As he felt tho throb of tho  engines beneath his feet, and swayed  with the motion of the littlo vessel,  a wild joy filled the heart of its captain.  The smell of the engine-room, the  scent of the sea, the tasto of the  first errant, dron of the Hying spray,  filled him with a mad delight. There  were no other officers on board but  himself. His second in command wns  it petty oflicer, who, by the masked  light of a lantern, vvas picking a  course clear of lho mine-fields that  guarded the harbor's entrance.

Will  and Carl and Bob had worked on  him all one forenoon. Ho stood  close to tho parlor window with his  bock to it, and he was so tall that  his head reached up to the middle  of the lower pane. He had no haud.i  nor feet, for tho boys were only very  little boys, antl hands and feet are  hard to make; but ho had ears und a  very large noso and mouth, nnd two  of relief, the petty officer looked up.  "We aro clear now. Little Father,"  ho said.  Paul's hand  was on  the telegraph*.  He threw over the lever, and a muffled  tinkle resounded beneath his feet.  The thin si col hull of the destroyer  trembled  for a second;   than  came a.  sudden   leap     ahead    ns to  well-nigh'  j throw  the captain off his feet. From  Kressler culled at the  little shop  tO| |]er  three funnels poured  a rain     of  which    his    letters were directed,     ii.(i rod-hot cinders,  sizzling down to her  "'' soddened decks.   High flung clouds of  spray broke over hcr bows, 0and great  waves smashed against her.  In   the  conning-tower  Paul  set his  znggod  u  path  through  tho    floating j staring black eyes.     These eves  were  engines of death,  until,   with  a  sigh j not tho amine size, because Bob went  as I  love  square  official    envelope   was  handed  to him.  He clutched i't eagerly, and walked  rapidly back to his lodging. Hc  reached homo, and with trembling  hands struck a mutch and lit tho  tiny lamp Eagerly lie ripped open  tlio flap of th'e envelope, and extracted tvvo documents. He read the lirst  in silence, but thero was eloquence  in thc glow of his cheek and the  dancing light in his eyes.  It was a formal notification of his  liberty to return to Russia, lt bore  the ollicial stamp of the Chief of  Police, and the counter-seal of the  Imperial Secretary. The other document he unfolded with a puzzled  face. His      bewilderment was  only momentary, however, for  hc started up from his seat  with a groat cry of joy, as ho read  the words that gave him .back his  old rank and his old profession. A  slip of paper fell to the ground. He  picked it up.  "You will proceed by the shortest  l-oiito to Da.lny, und take over command of th'e torpodo vessel Riga,"  it ran briefly, and was followed by  the signature of the Secretary to  the Adniirulty.  That night Captain Paul Kressler  left Charing Cross by thc nine  o'clock mail train, traveling third-  class, and carrying, carefully folded  in a bundle by his side, a uniform,  which according to no lens than threo  distinct Admiralty orders, was obsolete of pattern.  course. According to tho instruction  ho had received, the enemy's fleet lay  sixty miles oil'. Tn a littlo over two  hours ho could come up with his  quarry at the speed he had set, but  he knew that the last twenty miles  must be run dead-slow, lest the flamo  from tho funnels betray him.  Shuddering, trembling, leaping  like a thing of'life, thp torpedo-boat  threshed through the tumbled seas.  Paul looked at his watch. -  "An hour and a half out," he unit-!  tered,  and laid his hand on the telegraph.  Tho pace of the Riga slackened;  the convulsive shudders that had  shaken the littlo ship died away to  a tremble.  The second officer clutched his  arms.  "Look���������look!" he whispered, as  though fearful that lie would be overheard.  They hud run out of the mist, and  th'e night was perfect. The sky was  all a smother of winking stars, and  on the horizon blazed one blight  comet. A comet, with a straight  whito tail, stretched upward, that  moved uneasily from left  to right.  III.  It was a tired-looking man that  stepped down on to������the platform ut  Vladivostock a month later. The  'train had brought him from Dnlny,  in response to nn urgent telegram  from the commandant of the naval  port. A dapper young oflicer met  him, and saluted, eyeing him curiously.  "Cnptnin Kressler?" nsk'cd the officer,  vvith liis hand to his cap.  Kressler nodded awkwardly. Before tho stripling, resplendent in his  well-litting uniform, he foi!; shabby  and mean.  Something of his thoughts was reflected in tlie fnco of his junior.  Paul's hand sought the telegraph,  antl the boat stopped.  "They've got their searchlights  working,"  he said.  And his subordinate's perplexed  face reminded liim that unconsciously  he was speaking in Knglish. -  *  "Go aheud dead slow!" he ordered  in Russian.  And  the'���������destroyer  crawled. ahead.  And now, at various points on the  horizon, other comets cuiric into life,  and soon the ocean's rim bristled  with swaying spokes of white light.  Paul frowned. .    .

A week alter this meeting, the Imperial Secretary at St. Petersburg  sent a telephone message to the  Grand Master of the Police, in response to which that high official  ramc post haste to  the palace.  "Who is Kressler?" asked the Secretary,   without   any   preliminary.  "Paul Kressler���������Naval oflicer; flag  captain SS; author of 'Torpedo Boat  added the chief  fated port.

It wanted an hour to the dawn,  when the searchlights of the fleet  grew strangely blurred. Kach ray  shone in a strange nimbus, that softened and diffused the fierce white  I light.  The captain of the Riga took one  long, eager observation through hi.s  glasses, and a smile broke the hard  lines of his face.  "Half-speed" ahead!" ho signalled;  and the sea hissed under the stripped  hull  of  the  destroyer,  The  searchlights   were  now   but     a  ^V-iLikQj-iJikeamy^glnvi-^oii^ihe-JioclzQn^^  'I have already made great sacrifices for Russia," said Kressler,  speaking slowly.

"Sea fog!" said Paul, in fierce exultation. "Every man to his post!  .Man the quick-firers; stand by to  torpedo!"  The lights were now blotted out,  and Paul threw over the indicator to  "full speed." Again the Riga leapt  i forward, peering ahead through the  spray-washed outlook of the r.nnning-  tov.er, saw tlie while banks of the  sea-fog rolling towards him.

As  he felt himself growing, bit by bit,  nnd tho cold wind blew upon him,  he longed for eyes co look found,  and when his head was at last finished, and ho could see. it seemed to  him that thoro wus rover such a  beautiful yard ns his, nor tliree such  fino boys anywhere us "Will and Carl  and Hob.  They put an old hat on his head  and then tried to knock it olT. which  seemed strange to tho snow-rnah; but  ho bore it very good-naturedly because he could not, help hiimself, anyway, and ono might n5i well be-good-  natured over what ciie cannot help.  Besides, Will had 'made a very smiling ''inouth for him, and ono cannot  feel cross when one has to smile. )  "These arc very good hoys," he said  to himself, "arid if they Tike to I  throw snowballs at me it must bo  right." And when the boys wont  in to lunch he was very lonesome.  So he watched the sparrows hunt  in tho snow for crumbs; and ho saw  a little dog como running up tho  street, barking for veiy joy. "It  must be a cheerful world," said he,  "but I wish tho hoys would como  back."  The afternoon slowly passed. Wo  could hear Will and Carl and Bob at  play in tho parlor behind him, and  he wa.s very lonely. The sun shone  full upon him, and a tear trickled  down from his eye.. "Thoy have forgotten mc," he said. Hut Bobbie  camo out in th'o yard just then to  hunt for a lost mitten, and he saw  tho tear. Being a vory littlo boy,  ho understood.  "Poor man!" ho said, running up  to pat him. "Ho can't sec in tho  houso,  can ho?"  Bobbie  looked     round.'

"We must make a now mouth and  noso  for this  sido,"   said  Will.  "Yes," said Carl. "It would spoil  his head to try to take these off."  And so it was arranged, and all  that evening they kept the curtain  raised so that tho snow-man could  watch them play. They did not forget him, but went often to the window to speak to him.  "What good boys!" . ho said.  "And to-morrow, when wo go outdoors," said Will, "wc* must, change  his eyes back again, so he can see  us .then."  "Yes. wo will," said Carl, and  they all said good-night to him as  they went off to bed.

Bancroft devoted nearly thirty |  years to his "History of the United  States," which is not a history of  tho country at all, since it ends  whore tho history of tho country properly begins. Had tho work been  continued ho must hnvo written  seventy-five or eighty volumes.  Scott is said to have written  "Waverly" in less than six weeks.  He wrote very rapidly, seldom revised, and ns a consequence his novels wero full of blunders, errors nnd  'anachronisms.  Burns committed his poems to  memory boforo ho wrote them, and  when he sat down to write ho had  beforo him no labor of composition,  but only the tnsk of writing down  what ho had already finished.  Gibbon devoted over twenty years  of his life to the labor, of rentling for  and writing the "Decline'and. Fall."  It is ono of tho most stupendous  fonts accomplished by ono man.

"Almost immediately after thc war  with Chinn, Japan began purchasing  cotton fabric machines, and hundreds of small mills woro started.  Immense amounts of cotton fabrics  wero made for Japanese consumption,  and also for exportation to Chnui.  it will bo remembered that there aro  .something like 410,000,000 peoplo  in Chinn, nnd 05 per cent, of these  wear cotton clothing.

Georgo Eliot is said to have written "Middleinarch" in four months.  Some doubt is thrown upon this  statement by the fact that she commonly worked slowly, writing with  great care and deliberation, and making fow erasures after tho work was  done.  Dickens says in the introduction to  "David Copporlield" that ho spent  two,years in the composition of  that novel. Ho did not usually require so long a timo, many of his  novels being, finished!, in' a year and  most of the shorter stories in a few  days.

The diviner wn.s Mr.  B. Tompkins, of Chippenh'anr, Wilts.  Tho party included several experts,  engineer.":, sinkers, analysts, , and  others; and on tlieir arriving at a  large farm the party 'entered a field,  where the diviner produced a twig  in the shape of a fork and, followed  by thc party, made an excursion up  and down tho ground. After a  while he was led to , an adjoining  field, whore the twig appeared to  pull him about, and the influence  was so strong that hc released it  for a few:'. " moments., being himself  powerfully affected. After a rest of  diviner settled down to a particular  spot, where ho declared that water  would bo- found at 50 feet, and a  full supply at 90 ft. to 100 ft. Mr.  Tompkins is a farmer and breeder of  sheep on a large scale. .  THE  LANGUAGES  OF;-INDIA.'  Among the 14.5 distinct languages  spoken in British India are some  possessing only a .few hundred  words, others rivaling English, as  Dr. Gricrson says, or .Russian, as I  would say. in their copiousness;  -some-in^whlch^oVcry^word^isTSTKono^  syllable, others in which somo are  elongated - by nggliintinntion till  th'oy run to ten syllables, liko "da-  po-1-ocho-akan-tahcn-tnc-tin-a-c" ���������a  Kontali word meaning: "Ho who bo-  longs to him who belongs to mo will  States   hove    been gradually closing  down.  LOW AVAGES.  "There' are 2,000,000 availablo  factory workers in Japan. Their  wages .will range from 10 to 40  cents a day. Already large shipments of cotton fabrics, have been  mado to Chinese ports. Many of  these, I havo ascertained, bore English and American trade marks. Tlic  Japanese are noted imitators. It  will bc impossible for England or  thc United States to compete with  the cheap  Japanese  labor.  "lln the lish business also tho Japanese will be soon the groat competitors of the Americans. They aro  noted fishermen,' and ���������thousands so-  -cure a living by the occupation. In  a few years, unless my reckoning is  nil off, tho Japanese will be shipping  fish into the Uni(tid States, instead  of tho United States shipping fish  inlo Japan. Fish secured from tho  Japanese fishermen will\cost " less  thnn thoso secured from jftiicricans.  TO BE FEARED LV IRON FIELD.  "In the matter of tho pro.siicc.tivo  Chinese development, the iron industry is more greatly to be feared than  any other. In France, Germany,  Austria, Belgium, Italy, Holland,  Great Britain and the United States  thero are somo 12,000,000 men engaged in the production and manufacture ��������� of ��������� iron. ������������������One-quarter of the  availablo supply of workers in China  could displace all  of these.  "The average wage schedule, in the  countries above men tinned '.is SI a  dny, not exclusive of the United  States. Thc high wage scale of the  United States raises the low wage  scale of the rest of the .world. Add  100 per cent, to the wage scale of  China, and it will still bo 75 per  cent, below the wage scale of any  other country. And i't.must be remembered in considering this fact  that there is all the coal and iron  in China necessary to cnrry. on groat  enterprises for nn unlimited period.  The danger of Chinese competition is,  therefore,, obvious.  "Another .danger in Japanese dc-  "yelopment along industrial lines is  this: If Japan 'does not secure Manchuria, through' which it' would obtain its available wheat supply, it  will, without a doubt, put on a lino  of steamships to ply between... Japan  and Bombay" and  Calcutta in an eiv  QUEER MEATS FOR FOOD  NATIONS DIFFER AS TO WHAT  IS EDIBLE.  The  Edible  Virtues   of Many   Animals    Have   Been  Neglected.  Tho popular prejudice against  snails in incomprehensible when tho  favor of oysters, periwinkles, mussels  nnd cockles is considered says tho-  London Globe, in muny London restaurants, particularly in Soho, snails  now figure 011 tho daily menu. This  is nn imported tasto from Franco,  but in tho West Country snails aro  highly esteemed by tho lower classes.  A yenr of two ago a clergyman cited  ns un illustration of poverty in Bristol that ho hnd scon working girls  pick snails oil.a wall   and cat thorn.  As a mutter of fuct, lho snail is  extensively eaten in Somerset nnd  Gloucestershire, both as a dainty and  n medicine. There are men who mako  n living by collecting snnils and soiling them under the namo of "wall  flsh." Boiled in thoir shells, tlioy are  picked out and eaten with bread nnd  buttor, being accounted a grent luxury und very nourishing. In pulmonary diseuses thoy probably rank as* a  specific.  Frogs are another dainty which  projudico denies to tho Englishman,  though in tho United States and  Canada, they aro esteemed ns highly  as in Franco. Spasmodically a sturgeon is offered for sale in London, .  and thc accident of its capture affords a novel dish which should not  bo passed by, for it is generally sold  at eight pence, a pound. Cut and  cooked as a cutlet, it tastes ratho'r  like veal without a suspicion of flesh  about it.  IN  GERMANY  bear's flesh is greatly favored, and  smoked boar tongues, hams and sausages are both appetizing and-expensive. Ever sinco Paris, in tho siege  of 1370-71, was driven to eating  up the animals at the zoo, camel's  flesh has been demanded by French  gourmets. Remarkably like beef in  appearance, it is as tender as veal,  and thero arc-Parisians.' who import  it regularly fiom Algeria. On tho  samo testimony, lion steaks arc. reported to bc only, moderate eating,  while tiger is both tough and sinewy.  Jaguar flesh; howevor, is delightfully  white and toothsome, and alligators  and crocodiles provide a meal of tho  most delicate flavor, midway between that of veal and pork.  Beef and 'mutton, with pork, so  entirely make; up tho menu that vvo  actually..'' regard lumb und veal as  distinct dishes. Why should not goat  flesh bo introduced, into tho bill ; of  fare, lt is good eating, ns Robinson  Crusoe nnd Don-Juan testify. In  France it is largely eaten, Paris ,  alone requiring- a hundred thousand  gouts annually for the table. Our  neighbors also enjoy the donkey,  whoso flesh, when killed young, resembles (hat of the turkey, though  of much finer' flavor.  . Though a hippophagic banquet arranged by the Into Sir Henry Thompson was held in London somo years  ago, it is still almost dangerous to  suggest horse flesh to nn Englishman  as food.   In reality,.', it is  VERY EXCELLENT EATING,  and only prejudice can gainsay the  fact. Old and wornout horses cannot afford either nourishing or pnlnta-  ble meat, but that of a' horso reared  like nn ox, for the table/bus a finer  fibre and flavor than beef, though  darker iif color. It is served in the  best French restaurants, as woll as  beingi largely eaton.,by the people.  "It was in Paris," wrote Mr, Van-  dam, the author of "An Englishman,  in Paris," "that T learned how the  cat had been misjudged. Call the  dog the friend of man if you like,  but don't cat him. Fry him, stow  him, boil or bake him, do what you  will, his flesh is and remains oily  and flabby, with a strong flavor of  castor oil.

Details have just leaked out of a  gruesome incident in a Montgomeryshire workhouse, where tho disobedience,., und general ..misbehaviour, of  oue .of the inmates hus caused considerable trouble, says tho London  Express.  Tlio other duy the reprobate overstepped the bounds, and the ollicials,  thinking it the most- severe punishment they co-ilil inflict, locked him-  in the mortuary, where the dead  body of an inmate war, lying in a  colIin. The man, however, was not  in the least degree disconcerted, rflid  coolly proceeded to avenge his''treatment by preparing- a sight thut  would terrify his first visitor.  Lifting the body out of the coffin,  he propped the white-robed corpse  against the wall, facing towards the  door, and lay in the coffin himself.  A few hours later a woman appeared with the reprobulo's meal. Tho  gruesome sight overcame her, and  though she gasped, not a word could  she   litter.  The wag at lust peeped over the  edge of the coffin, and, addressing,  the corpse, exclaimed, "If you are to  have no grub I can oat it for you."  The woman fled, and no moro inmates havo been imprisoned in tho  mortuary.  "I spent last evening in the company of the one I love best in all  tho world." "Indeed! And weren't  you  tired  of being all by yourself?"  rod wino, tho cat mado a mosj sav-  "ory_(lish;"und~aflcr"lb"c"p"rejiidice    ot~*~  the first    mouthful,    one was bound  to admit   its    succulence and flavor.  Tho same verdict must be given    for  pio  by  any who liavo eaten  it.      At  thrashing  timo  in  the nofth country  some     farmers    capture and  convert  tho rats from tho ricks into a    stew  or pio.   Thus cooked,  thc grain    fed  this     point      both     tho  naturalists,  ���������  Frank Bucklnnd and the Rev.  J.  G.  Wood, agreed.  Another neglected article of food is  THE  GUINEA  PIG.  Were the edible virtues of tho hedgehog known it would rival ortolans in  opicureun favor. As cooked in rural  England it is delirious. The correct .  way is to incase tho hedgehog, bristles and all, with a thick coat of  soft clny and place it in the glowing  embers of a firo and bake. The bristles and skin come off vvith the hardened clay, leaving tlib'tenderest and  most  delicate  meat imaginable.  To make bunny squirrel into a  slew may seem a rennement of sol-"���������������������������  fish cruelty, but Such ideas rarely '  trouble tho rustid,,-and the dish is as  memorable as appetizing. Snakes,  being rare in England, are almost unknown as food, but in southern  France there is a snake which is extensively sold, prepared for cooking  itindcr the name of hedge col. Indeed,  those who enjoy eels can scarcely  shudder at stewed snake.

MATCHMAKERS  There was little ot tho diplomat in  lho composition of Captain Paul  Osborne', -retired master muriner.  When nny business anno his way  whorein the oxerciso of tact wns desirable ho wns npt to blunder unwittingly; for he hold stoutly lo the belief that a man who could bully iv  mutinous crew into discipline and  obedience had nothing to learn in  such a trifling matter as tho management of a son. And he had ilo-  flnilolv resolved that Dick should  marry Mllly Marston, the pretty  daughter of his next-door neighbors.  Milly's parents had met his overtures for tho nuitch enthusiastically,  and wlien, over a glass of tho captain's brewing in the Osborne parlor, the old sen-dog had promised to  bring Dick's assent���������ami the happy  youth himself���������to the littlo party to  bo hold on the morrow in honor of  Milly's birthday, Mr. Marston delightedly vowed that his wife's and  his own jlcarest hopes were on the  cvo of fulfilment.  Mrs. Osborne shook hor head dubiously when the captain breezily unfolded his������������������ scheme. Dick was a fine,  high-spirited young fellow, and she  bad grave doubts regarding the wisdom of an attempt, at coercion. Iter  shrewd', motherly instinct told her  that th'o young people were already,  although perhaps unknowingly as  yet, trending easily towards tho matrimonial goal, and that sooner .or  later their parents' desires would bo  gratified. Besides, they wero both  ���������ridiculously young, and she, for hcr  port, couldn't bear th'e. thought of  parting vvith him just yet, oven to  Milly Marston.  The captain airily pooh-poohed hor  objections, and ultimately gained  her halting concurrence, along with  a warning to be rautious how he  <lenlt with Dick. Tlio captain good-  Ii'umorodly protested that such an  Injunction was quite superfluous; ho  was always cunning, but on this  occasion she might rely upon him  being an ambassador and a snake  rolled into one. Wo in the morning  lie brought, his son to bay.  "This is thc girl's birthday, Dicky,  .  my  lad,"  ho began  cheerfully,    with  a. j6rk of his head towards the wall,  on  the  farther    sido    of  which   . the  *Marston gable abutted.  ���������"What girl, dad?"  ��������� "1-ler nest door���������Milly Marston.

His round, red face became wreathed  in smiles, and he rubbed his hands  ���������delightedly.  "That's it, Dicky, my lad. Hn,  lia! I do liko to bear- you say it  that way. Sho's a clean, clipper-  liuill little hooker, is Stilly���������well ballasted, loo," sinking hia voice to a  hoarse whisper, arrd winking meaningly inlo his son's face: "don't forget that, Dick���������mighty well ballasted. The sort of craft that'll stand  up to a gale: oh, you rogue?"  Dick understood and laughed uneasily.  "Whenever I see her. be it weekday or Sunday,"-proceeded tho captain, "I ran't help feeling envious of  old George. I won't deny that Pro-  vidence has given mother and me tho  ���������best' boy in the world; but, Dicky,  my lad, a son ain't everything���������  ���������mothi'r and I have always had a  sort of hankering after a girl as well  to make up our cargo of happiness.  Ain't that truo, Polly? Of coursc'it  is. And if we'd had the choosing of  Ivor she'd have been just such' another as Milly." Here the captain  gave an emotional sniff and mopped  his'face  with   his  handkerchief.   But  ���������lie quickly-���������recovered���������and���������said,-  aliruplly.     "What's  your  opinion  of  thc lass, Dick?"  Dick, hesitated, colored, then his  glance steadied on his father's.  "Why," ho said, simply, "I like  Milly."  Tho captain hanged his fist-on the  table aird gurgled and shook with  laughter. "There," he criod, triumphantly, to his wife, "didn't I toll  you 'twas all plain sailing? '-' Tho  'job's done,  roily."  But the mother's face did not reflect hcr husband's triumph. Dick  looked from one to the other of his  parents',  clearly puzzled.  "What job do you refer to, dad?"  he asked.  "ITa, ha, ha!" laughed thc captain, prodding his son's ribs, gleefully. "You sly dog, Dick! : You  thought we were blind, did you? But  we ain't.

Mr. George Hannuli, passenger  manager of the Allan steamship line  says that the company was especially interested iu tho sailing for Canada  of  the   "Victorian."  "It means more to this country,"  said Mr, Hannah, "than most Canadians can imagine. In tho first place  the 'Victorian' will practically inaugurate what will bo known as the  fast Atlantic mail service between  the British Isles and Canadian ports.  The steamers .'Victorian', and 'Virginian,' I havo no hesitation in saying, will give just as fast service as  thoro is under the British flag, running to any country you may mention.

We have decided between us (hat, as  the pair of you are so shy of coming  to (lie point-, vve enn't do bettor thnn  livil you a helping hand..    So,  while  I'm pointing tho path of duty and  inclination to you, tho captain is  tackling his son."  With o. cry of dismay Milly turned  nn'd fled.

"Give her an hour or two to think  it   over   and   "then   use   your   rightful  j authority.    .She'll gladly give way."  "I cannot help thinking," said Mr.  I Marston, wilh a slow shako of his  head, "that the captain was wrong.  I'm afraid wo nave only made matters worso by our interference. Cupid is a ticklish little customer to  meddle with."  III.-  The birthday party turned ..out a  tragic failure. Milly had'locked herself in hor room, on a plea of headache, and so her parents felt sore.  Strangely enough, their feelings of  irritation     were    aggravated   rather  Mr. Marston bowed sarcastically.  "Pray don't disturb yourselves about  us or our dear daughter. Her estimate of your son quite coincides  with our own newly-discovered esti-  mato of you."  "Wo���������we despise you," said Mr.  Marston,  hotly;  "and to "  "By no means, my dear," said  Mrs. Marston, pompously. "We despise nobody, but " when necessary  we ignore���������wo simply ignore. AVe  wish you both a very good-night!"  Mr. Marston's assumption of cold  superiority mado tho captain almost  speechless with rage. " Ho stormed  and fumed, but his wife kept her  head, and finally managed to coax  him away before anything, more regrettable occurred.  So tho course of true lovo took n.  queer twist for Dick and Milly.  At two neighboring hearths of  nights- for a whole week two pairs of  parents volubly congratulated themselves, on a truly marvellous escape  from a dire calamity on the parts of  themselves and their respective offspring. In their inmost hoa'rts, however, regrets and yearnings wore  never absent. Tho captain's manner  of stifling them was by drinking a  double share of his excellent brew  before turning in; Mr. Marston  smoked more than was good for hiim  and dreamt of the captain's whisky."  Milly was humiliated and ashamed,  while Dick was bitterly, but silently,  angry. The chango was .tolling visibly on the healths yjf all concerned  when the outraged -littlo god again  took a hand in tho game.

New   Discoveries Will Reduce     the  Biblical  Measurements.  Tho measurements of Biblical  buildings and persona havo over beon  a sourco of awesome wonderment to  the youthful, and a ihutter of considerable trouble to those students of  history nnd archaeology who hnvo  found much in tho hooks ot tho Old  Testament that is confusing and  seemingly contradictory.  All measurements mentioned nre so  mnny, "cubits," nnd what Hint cubit  represents! in metrical or English  measurements has so fur beon more  or less conjectural.  A cubit ot. ono foot six inches  hns so fur been accepted, and upon  this muny measurements that in tho  present ago uro regarded as inexplicable have been built up.  It hus been left for tho Rev. W.  Shaw Caldccott, a well-known lecturer upon tho subject, to discover  from the evidence ot thc Bible itself  nnd from scholarly deductions from/  tho famous Senkoroh tablet tho existence of threo cubits.  A thousand yours before tho birth  of Abraham, those throe "ells" or  cubits were in use, says MV. Caldccott. Thoy represented respectively  nino-tonthsi ono and a fifth and one  and^a hnlf of English foot. The lirst  was used exclusively for tho measurement of gold nnd gold tapestry work,  tho second for building work, and tho  measurement of objects and persons,  the third for measuring areas only.  Mr, Caldecott's calculations enablo  us to obtain a more accurate idea of  the dimensions of some Biblical figures.  Goliath was by no means tho  mighty giant ho was believed to be.  By the sido of Chawng, tho Chinese  giant, ho cut's-an ordinary figure. Tho  groat 1)0(1 of Og dwindles to something just more than ordinary size,  and the tower of Solomon's magnificent temple scarcely overreaches tho  clock of St. Paul's.

Tlie world nover witnessed a greater triumph of mind over matter than  wus    signalized    by      tho    successful  meeting  of the galleries  which     now  pierce   tho   Simplon   Mountain   for  a  distance  of  12.20  miles  and  shorten  the journey, from Calais to Milain to  5S."   miles,   compared   with   tho    GS0  miles by tin- Mont  Cenis Tunnel and  005 miles by the St.  Gothard.    Kx-  traorilinury talent,  unquenchable per-  severeance.  aud  superb  courage havo  contributed     to    overcomo    obstacles  which   it  in  admitted     wero  unprecedented  in    any    previous  engineering  work.   It was not the extreme length  of  the  tunnel  which  constituted    tho  difficulty  of  the enterprise,  but     the  soft, treacherous rock, combined with  hot and cold springs of grout volume.  Tho inception     of tho scheme    aud  tho  initiulion  of  the  work  are mat-  tors  of  history,   as  also  are  the  repealed     subsequent  predictions     that  the end could not be nchioved.      'I'ho  -tunnel,    which   is really two parallel  tunnels,    each   with   a single    track,  was begun in tho autumn of 1898 at  Brigue,    Switzerland,    and a    month  or  two  later   at   Iscllc,   Italy.      All  the  machinery   installations  had     to  bo specially prepared,  hence the progress at  the outset was    slow,     but  from January, 1S99, until December.   ���������  1903,  it progressed at an average of  3,497  metres a year.    Some  of     the  greatest  troubles  were met  in   1904,  wlien only 1,603 metres wero pierced,  but for months together tho splendid  drills regularly turned out IS feet of'  gallery   every   24   hours,   which    far  exceeded the rate evor beforo attained in thc world on any work of this  kinds  DEDAYED DY WATER.  I'ho gradient ascends at each entrance toward the middle for thc purposo of drainage, and this alone_  made possible the completion of thoc  work. At a distance of 4,400 metres from Tsolle a spring, or rather,  a river, of cold water was struck  which gushed 12,500 gallons a minute and delayed operations on tho  Italian side for months. Moreover,  the ground was treacherous, and this  necessitated elaborate propping. 'The  largest timbers were crushed and  steel gir'ders were twisted. Tho latter were eventually mado serviceable  with the aid of concrete cement.  Meanwhile from Drigue tho workers  reached   the  summit  of  the  gradient  in the middle of the tunnel, although  tho temperature had risen to 132 degrees Fahrenheit,  which  was    35 degrees     higher     than   expected.      The*-  Swiss workers  then began  to  'drive t  down to meet the Italians,  and    the *  hot springs troubles,  which hnd boen  frilly' foreseen,   began   again.      Wator  of     a   temperature   of   117     degrees  Fahrenheit    was    soon  tapped,     but  this  was     overcome for a  while    by  sending jets of cold  water  into     tho  fissures.

This was  "in May; -lfl04.^.Il_was tho last named accumulation "-which- ���������gushed  through thc final breach. From the  Swiss sido the works into Italy now  remain complete.

Throughout the operation no dust  was produced, it being immediately,  turned into mud by the cxhaus.t water from the drills. The roranrkable  standard of health of tho 3,000 men  employed is partly attributable to  this and to the admirable arrangements which had been made for protecting them. They were protected  against sudden changes of temperature and arrangements were made for  changing and drying their clothes  constantly and providing doucho  baths and substantial food. Oreat  attention was paid to ventilation,  and  such a     thing as  foul  air    was  ac-tiially_unknown   Three shifts of eight hours each  constituted  a  day's  work.
