C B, HUME & CO,  Proposed Y. M. Ci A.  ���������o ���������     ��������� ..  A meeting of those interested in the  establishment  of  a Y. M. O. A. was  held on Thursday evening last when a  committee consisting of Messrs. How-  sou, McCarter, Lindmark, Kilpatrick  and Elson was appointed to interview  Mr.  Whyte, second vice-president of  the  U. P. R., regarding what assistance the O. P. R. would give towards  such a scheme.    The committee interviewed ��������� Mr.  Whyte during his short  stay here on Tuesday when that gentleman stated that while the.mutter  of assisting such institutions had been  discussed ��������� no appropriations had  yet  been  made.-   Personally "he was in  favor  of  something being done and  General  Supt.   Marpole   had  recommended Kevelstoke as  being a good  point at which to make an experiment.  Ee said, however, that nothing should  be done unless it was done thoroughly  and believed that  it would be a good  investment for  the    Company  both  from a financial and business stand  point.  A meeting was held last night at  which the committee reported the  result of their interview with Mr.  Whyte. After considerable discussion  as to what steps should next be taken,  In tbe course of which the urgent need  and desirability of establishing a  branch of the Y. M. C. A. in Revelstoke was dwelt 'upon by the .various  speakers, it was decided to appoint  two committees as follows: Committee composed of Messrs. B. R. Atkins;  H. Morrison, and J. Lyons, to gather  information regarding the institution  and- workings of a Y. M. C. A. particularly in a railroad town; (2) a committee - composed of Messrs. A. E.  Kincaid, G. 8. McCarter, and C. B.  Hume, to acquire information as fo  what support would be given such an  association and also what' could he  done 'in. the way of* procuring a suitable building. When the committees  are in a position to report a meeting  will be called by the. chairman, Mr. R.  Howson, ^when the _ matter will he  further discussedjand, insufficient support '.is " guaranteed,"- some "^scheme  formulated for th^carryicgoutof the-,  project.

To the Mayor Xnd Council, City.of  Revelstoke.  Your Worship antl Gentlemen,  The Fire, Water and Light Com-  mitee beg to report as follows on the  additions and improvements required  to the light and water plants of the  city :  The present dynamo is loaded to its  full capacity, and is incapable of supplying such ah amount of current as  will be required next winter and thereafter. Your committee recommend  the purchase of an additional dynamo  and the.necessary electrical apparatus  for the same.  To provide the' power required to  run the extra dynamo, the Wm. Hamilton Manufacturing Co. have been  consulted and their recommendations  are embodied heiewith.  The flume and dam require considerable strengthening and repairing,  and estimates fpr that purpose aie  included, as well fas for sundry repaiis  and tools for the power house.  . An estimate is also submitted for  providing ' sufficient electric light  mete?s"'to~ place each consumer on a  meter rate, and do'away entirely with  the flat rate, your Committee being of  tbe opinion that a meter system is the  only'' busluess-like way. of supplying  lighttocohsuniei's." * ' V-*,"���������^ ���������  . Your Committee^ have also'considered'the distribution of .water throughout the - city,- and": in view of. the  increasing population east of Mackenzie avenue, and the further prospective  increase in that locality, recommend  that a 6 inch water main be laid on  Mackenzie avenue from the existing  12-inch main - to Eighth ' street,"and  that 4-inch mains be"laid from there  along 3rd, 5th and Tth streets. This  will take about two carloads of wooden pipe, an estimate for which, and  the layingris herein submitted.

Field, B.C., June 5.���������A sad fatality  occurred here on Saturday when a,  young man, named Peter Ireland, lost  his life in the rapids of the Kicking  Horse River. Along with other waiters from the 0. P. R. Hotel, Ireland  went to construct a raft to'float down  the river. The party constructed two  rafts, and all wont well for a considerable time, when the majority left for  home, leaving -Ireland and another  nanied Collier with a raft each.  Tlie two got out into the current  and were rapidly, carried downstream.  Collier was about twenty yards in the  rear when his raft struck the right  bank. Clambering ashore he was horrified to see neither liis companion nor  the. .raft he had been on. Rushing  down along the water's edge for a considerable distance the only object he  could see was the upturned raft bt his  late companion. Returning to Field  tho alarm was given, and a s. avcli  party left, leturning later onlj* the  more convinced that Ireland had been  dashed to pieces in the mountain tor-  lent. He had only been in Field seven  weeks, coming here fiom St. Law-  icnce Hall, Monti cal. Ireland was  about'thirty-six yeais of age, and for  twenty years had been sailing on the  Western Atlantic, being the only support of an aged mother tesidiug in  Liverpool, England.

Harold Hurst, an eight-year old boy,  fell off the Pacific express on Saturday near Twin ButLo. He was not  missed for some time and a thorough  search of the train revealed nothing  more than the lad's'cap. On the train  arriving at Revelstoke the yard engine  was sent back to search for the missing boy, who, when found, was counting ties in'a westerly direction none  the worse of his mishap, his escape  being nothing short of miraculous.  His description of how.it happened  was rather amusing, he said, "I went  to sleep on - the car steps and woke up  in 'the  bushes."   Mrs. Hurst and the  XV. A.

A First Class Entertainment.  One of the most  delightful entertainments ever given  in   the city was  that by Dale's English Opera Singers  at the Opera House on Friday evening  lust.     The   audience was fairly large  and  that   it   was     appreciative   was  amply   evidenced    by   the   repeated  encores.     The   company   consists   of  Miss   Edith   Serpell,   soprano;    Miss  Gwendoline   Phillips,   contralto;   Mr.  Claude Anderson, tenor; Mr.-Frederic  Dale,   bass;   and   Mr.   B.     Collman,  pianist.   Their programme consists of  gems from  light operas, and included  solos, duetts, trios and quartets,'-humorous, musical  sketches ��������� and   piano  numbers.     Miss  Serpell is a winsome  little lady with a beautiful voice, clear  and true :ls a hell and at once became  a favorite  with the audience as   did  also   Miss   Phillips, who "possesses a  rich, mellow contralto voice, and her  selections   were   given with excellent  taste.    Mr. Anderson's tenor is power- -  fui and 1-resonant,* and  he knows how  to use his splendid  voice to "the best  advantage.    Mr.  Dale  in his humorous selections  was particularly good,  "When  I was a. Boy at School" eliciting continued applause.     In the quartets the voices blended harmoniously,  "The   Little  Pat,"   and   "A Regular  Royal   Queen" ��������� being, , probably,, the  best.    Mr. Collman  in his piano selections proved himself an accomplished  pianist aud w.is apll.iu.dcd to the echo.  Mr. Dale, on  l������ehilf of the,company,  made the pleasing announcement tbr-,  on   their   return from the coast they  vt ould give another perfotmunce with   .  an entiie change of programme���������about  tlie 20th in-t.

He looked at her and understood  tha her object wns to accustom  1'udge to the pluce, nntl to koop her  out o! the way ot the Countess and  Seymour for at least ono morning.  "Oh, ho may come as far as tho  stai'lrs, mny ho not?" suid Irone.  "And he need no throw hia cigar  away need he, Madge?"  He walked besido them, his hands  thrust into the pockets of his shooting jacket, his handsomo faco full  of happiness, aind that happy-go-  lucky cheeriness which wont so far to  win hearts for him; and tho sight of  and two ladies and "Master" Royco  created a sensation In tho stable  yary. It seomed as if "every man,  from the coachman to the smallest  help," wonted to do something for  them, and was eager to attract their  notice.  Tho ooacfliman came forward .and  touched his cap, his ruddy face beaming vrtth a smile of gratitude for  Royce's hearty "-Horning, John,  horses all right'?"  "Yes. Master Royce. Beg pardon,  sir,  beg -pardon���������'Sir.' Royce now."  "Got promoted since my marriage, you soe," said Royce laughr  inglv to the two girls. Madgo blushed.  "This is my wife, you know,  John," he said.  Tho coachman touched his hat with  deep respect and admiration.        c  "I wish you every happiness,  ma'am;  we all   do."  "Yes, yea," tha other men murmured eagerly.  Madgo's color grow still deeper,  and thoy knew ahe murmured "thank  you," though they could not hear  her; ond they would havo raised a  r-S-oer. but that they remarked her  timidity and were afraid of frightening he".  Tho coachman led the way into tho  c'ables, and Madge's first sensation  was one of amazement and delight���������  her next of sadness; for as she looked at the splendid animals in their'  polished oak stalls, saw tho costly  apparatus for ventilation, the tiled  floor, every bit of iron und steel  bright and glittering, noticed the  scrupulous cleanliners of the whole,  she:thought of the-poor...'people she  had seen In oome of the towns,  crowded together in small hovels,  stifling for want of air, living in an  atmosphere of disease and dirt, and  the contrast smote her painfully.  Royce went up to tho beautiful  creature the coachman had so considerately offered Seymour, and the  animal whinied a loving welcome as  his master put his arm over the  "'��������� arched neck and patted it.  "You haven't forgotten me, old  fellow," he said in a low vole*.  "Sot he, sdr!" said tho ma_-, "Not  i: you were to be away five years!  I've kept him as fit as I could. Master Royce."  "He is in splendid condition,"  said'-Royce, and he laid hia hand  gratefully upon the coachman's  shoulder. "I've seen a good many  nags since���������while I've been away,  but none to beat him! I must have ;  a turn on him some time to-day."  "Yes, sir!" said the man proudly.  "He's as glad as tho rest of us to  see you back. Master Royce! You'll  be wanting ona for Mrs. Landon, sir.  I thought of that directly I heard  of your marriage. Master Royce, and  I think I've got one that will suit.  Giles,  fetch out that now mare."  Giles the man who had seen Royce  at Markham Fair and brought the  news to Seymour, eame forward and  tauched his hat, but by neither look  or sign indicated any previous knowledge of Madge, and, going into a  s'.all,   brought  out  the  horse.  "She'll  do.   I'll  try     her  with     a  rug   -.ound   hor���������not   that   it's   neces-  _sai-y^.it=xo5r-pa������������_J������er,_J_ohn  "Lot us seo," said Madge, and sho  opened tho gate and went into tho  paddock.  "Tako  rtiro,  dear!"   said  Ireno    as  Madge slowly  approached  tho  liorse.  "I    will bo   careful,"  aaid Madge,  smiling  to  hemelf.  Tho colt held its head up nnd looked at her with its "fiercely-gentle"  oyes, as the Arab poet has it, and  Its ears pointed toward her curiously, and moved a littlo uneasily; but  Madgo got up to it, and speaking  to it in a low soft voico, managed  to  get hold  of its  forelock.  "Take care, oh, take care, Madge!"  called out Irene, and sh������ entered tho  paddock.  "Don't como any nearer," said  Madge. "See there, dear���������on that  rail, there's a bridle and a cloth.  Will you givo me the bridle?"  "Madgo!" exclaimed Irene.  Madgo looked at her with a mischievous gleam in hor  dark eyes.  "There is no danger," sho said.  "I���������1 want to see if you think Royce  really could manage to teach me."  Irene brought the bridle, and with  a gypsy's patience and tact Madgo  got it on the colt.  Tho next instant sho was oa its  back.  "The cloth, tho cloth! Quick!"  sho criod, but softly.  Scarcely knowing what sho was doing, Irone ran and brought tho light  bluo overwrap, which ono of the mon  had left beside the bridle. Madge  took it from her, whipped it���������yet  gently���������round her waist, and in this  impromptu habit looked down upon  the startled Irene like the statue of  a young Amazon.  Then with a nod and a "Good-by,  dear!" let the colt go.  She trotted him, cantered him,  walked him, all perfectly, and at  last galloped him at almost racing  pace round tho paddock, bringing  him to a standstill in an instant  within'a yard of tho still amazed  Irene.  '"' "Oh, Madge, what a trick to play  me!" she said, her lovely faco turned up to her with smiling ropronch  "Why, you ride���������anything!" sho concluded, woman-like missing hcr simile.  "You forget that I am a gypsy,  and thnt all gypsies are used to  horsos. I think I must have learnod  to ride bareback before I could even  walk. Ever since I can remember I  havo played among the horses, like a  young colt myself. Ono tiling a  gypsy can do, if it is the only thing  ���������he can rido." .  "Are you sure you aro quite safe?"  asked Irene.  "As safe as if I wore on the  ground!"  "Then���������then gallop round onco  more, dear, for it Js delicious! I  thought I cJould ride���������a little;    Royce  always  said "  Madge let the colt go, and tore  round the paddock. Tho exercise  brought tho color into her cheeks,  her eyes were spark'ing as she pullod  tho colt up;-then-suddenly tho color  died awny, and her eyes became fixed, with dismay and distress, on  something behind Irene.  Madge paled, and still keeping tho  cloth round her waist slipped to the  ground.  "Do not mind, dear! It was my  fault! It was all my fault! Besides,  after all, why should you be ashamed? Why, Madgo!" for Madge heaved  a deep  sigh.  "I ought not to have done it,"  sho said in a low voice.   It  was     a  The gratified man looked round at  his mat?s as much aa to say, "Ain't  he a proper kind of gentleman, eh?"  "And where's Mias Irene's? Ah.  she remembers me too!" and he went  up to t'r.e mare and fondled her.  Jr������-,e stood looking on, her face  t.ii/1 pale, and the dark, shadowy-  rings under her sweet eyes showing  very plainly, but ahe said not a  ���������word. They went the ro'ind of the  ttalla.  "I've got a likely young thing ln  the paddock,  sir,"  said  John.  "We'll aee that another day,." said  Royce. "Miss Iran* wants tho ponies  row."  "Yes, sir. They're all right. She  fhall have  'em at once."  Iren<> and Madge departed to put  their jackets on, but Royce, with  marvelous solf-denial, refrained from  following  them.  They passed from the stables into  a little paved court beyond which  was  the paddock.  "That was a beautiful horse of  yours, Irene," said Madge.  "Yes," eaid Irene absently, "I am  very foiyi  of It.   Royce broke  It  for  me "  she pulled    up short,     then  went on hurriedly, "and that will bo  a very nice ono of yours. Royco will  soon teach you to ride hcr, dear;  there     la no  one  so  patient  as ha is   "  She stopped again and bit her  lip. It was hard, all ln ono short  week, to teach herself not to speak  of Royoe as if ha belonged to her.  "That is the young horse they spoke  of," sha went oo quickly.  Madga stopped and looked over the  railing, and a girlish desire to show  Irene that sha, Madge, could do at  least oa* thing well took possession  of her.  "It Is very prsttjr," sha eald with  a mischievous affttolation of timidity.  "Do you think it wcwld let us come  near it?"  "Oh, jr������, I should think so," Bald  Irene.

She noticed that wherever they  went they worfe-^t-sceived with a respect so profound as to almost  amount to awo.  They made several purchases in the  town shops, and various points of  interest, as they passed, were pointed out to MVidgo by Irene. Then tho  ponies drew them at a brisk pace  to Worse Common.  "More wo are," said Irene. "I lovo  this place. Ono can breathe hero ovon  on the hottest days; not that it is  hot now. Aro you woll wrapped up,  Madge? What would Royco say if I  lot you catch cold?"  "i should havo to try very hard  to catch cold. I novor had a cold  in  my  life,"  she said simply.  "I know you must bo strong, doar,  by tho way you sprang on that colt  and held it."      >  "Yes," said Madge smiling ruefully, "I am as strong as one of thoso  savages Lord Seymour was telling  us about last night; and aa ignorant."  "Seymour; you mustn't call him  'Lord,' " said Irene. "If you don't  liko Seymour, you might say 'Landon,' or the carl; he is your brother,  dear."  "Yes," said Madgo. "But it is  hard to realize it���������yet. I will try."  "There is madam's ponsionor,  would you like to see her? She is a  very nice woman, but very nervous  and timid. She has had a very un-.  happy life, I think, though I do not  know anything about it. She is always pleased to see us; shall we  go?  Madge assented, and Irene drove to  the cottage gate.  Martha Hoopor camo out, dressed  with her usual neat and humble  stylo. She flushed and grew pale by  turns when she saw that Irene was  not alone; and her thin, worn faco  grew troubled and anxious when  Irene said:  "How do you do, Mrs. Hooper? I  have brought Mrs. Landon, Mr.  Royce's wife, to see you."  Mi's. Hoopor made a curtesy, arid  opened the gate with a trembling  hand.  "Thank you, Miss. Will you come  in, ladies? I���������I have a cup of tea���������'..'.  Irene always found it best to be  quick and almost abrupt with her; it  is the best way with most nervous  people, whose nervbfisness is increased by any sign of it in others.  "Thanks, Mrs. Hooper. Ye3, we  should like a cup of tea, although it  is in the niorning. It is tho very  thing."  Mrs. Hooper called a boy, who  stood, staring-at them, to. mine] the  ponies, and proceeding tho two 'girls;  opened the door of the usual cottago  Parlor.  "If you will go in and sit down  ladies," she saidj "I���������1 will como In  one moment; tho^-tho tea is mado."  The parlof had the ordinary unused  look and smell of such apartments,  and  Trene aaid  with a  3milo:  "How much more comfortable wo  should have been beside tho fire in  the kitchen! But poor Mrs. Hoopor  would have had a fit if T had proposed such a thing; and���������Why!" She  stooped and picked up something  from  the ground.  "Why! Yes, it i.s madam's penJ'l  bracelet!"  "Madam's���������the count<������=������'?" said  Madjje. ' '  "Yos. How strange!" ;  Mrs. Hooper ontered at the; moment with the tea-tray; and as , she  caught sight of the bracelet in  Irene's hand thc tea-tray banged  down on the table with a thud, and  ber face turned wax-like in its pallor.  "It is madam's bracelet, isn't it,  Mrs. Hooper?" said Trene.  The woman hesitated for an instant, then she said in a low voice,  which she was evidently trying to  make careless:  "Yes, Miss; hnr ladyship must have  dropped it when she was here the  other day. Perhaps you would kindly take it to her ladyship?"  Sow, Madge would have thought as  little of the incident as Irene evidently did, but for those words, "the  other  day."

Tho  tamping of foundation is vcry important to prevent splitting and  cracking tho cement.  Mark placo for gutter at from six  foot three inches to six feet eight  inches, according to size of cow. Gutter should be dug throe inches wider  and deeper than wanted when finished. It should be nearly level from  end to end and when finished eight  inches deep. Make a box four feet  long and Sxl8 in outside measure,  to  use in laying  the gutter.  If foundation posts are used, measure back froun manger the proper  aistanco and drive pieces of one-inch  pipe eighteen inches long into the  ground, leaving, six inches ahove surfaco to sot foundation posts' on by  boring hole in tho lower end to receive th'o pipe.

There is one thing to  be kept in mind: The gravel used  in mixing the concrete must be. absolutely clean and free from sand,  clay or loam. If stones are to bo  had they may be crushed or broken  and used for the first or foundation  layer, but sharp gravel, is necessary  for the finishing coat. Only tho  best cements should be used.

LOUIS, 1904  Wo have fed tons of skim milk to  h'ogs with most excellent results, and  have usod several combinations. One  that gave excellent results in making  pork fast was wheat shorts and  sweet skim milk mixed just so it  would run. In connection with this  protein slop we fod all the soaked'  corn the pigs would eat. We have  been able on this kind" of feeding,  with pure-bred hogs, to mako about  fifteen pounds of gain from a bushel  of corn, or, rather, from the prico  of a bushol of corn invested in milk,  shorts and corn-. The sh'oats bad in  addition to the above the run of  clover pasture. ; Such results arc  rarely accomplished by swino feeders,  but they show tho possibility and  value ot combining feed coupled with  good blood and careful feeding.  Unless plenty of corn is allowed  tho mixture of shorts and milk  would not be as good as tho cornmeal and milk mixture, because both'  the milk and shorts are highly protein in character. There would not  be suficient carbohydrates and fat  in the ration to properly balance it.  But with plenty of corn in such condition that shoats can,,uso lt without getting soro tooth it makes a  great combination.  With tho advent of the farm separator farmers are enabled to get fine  results from the best by-product of  tho dairy. They may feed the milk  warm and sweet, almost frosh' from  the cow, and if mixed as indicated  above, will mako money for the  foodor, provided he has well-bred  hogs, feeds skilfully and keeps everything clean and wholesome.

A  few extracts follow:  "What must wo expect of this  numerous, ingenious and industrious  people, who are capable of .everything and much inclined to imitate  all that is foreign, should th'oy ever  havo a sovereign like our Peter the  Great?. With tho resources and treasures which Japan possesses, he  would enable it to become iri a few  years, the sovereign of the Eastern  Ocean."  Captain Golovnin further -said:  "Howevor deeply a horror of  everything foreign may bo imiressed  on the Japanese and Chinese governments, yot a change in tlioir system is not inconceivable; necessity  may compel thorn to do that to  which" their own free will does not  impel them."  That is jus't what has happened in  Japan, and what is beginning to  happen in  China.     And further:  "This might lead them to build  ships of war on the model of those  of Europe: these ships might increase  to fleets."  IIow strikingly this prediction has  boon fulfilled by Japan, Russia and  tho world know, while China is .now  planning to b'uild a navy.  "All tho inventions of Europe  might gradually take root in Japan,  even without the creative spirit of a  Peter, merely by the power and concurrence of circumstances. The Japanese certainly would not to in  want of teachers if they would only  invite thorn."  Japan did adopt th'e inventions,  not only of Europe, but of America  also, and she is using th'am every  day. Her power of absorption of  things foreign is almost beyond calculation.

Tho horses were (he said) fed regularly, oxorcise'd regularly, groomed  regularly, givon th'o most wholesome  food in strictly necessary proportions. Th'ey wore consequently fit  to 'run for  their lives.  The doctor inquired after the Head  of this establishment, tho man  through" whoso care theso admirablo  results wero achieved.

And tho advice..is'eminently  sound.  A man should look upon his body  not ns Himself, but as something belonging to hiim.

A well known nervo specialist h'as  given lt as his opinion that more  women go into nervous prostration  as a result of idleness than of overwork. "It is a rest from petty worries," he said, "that women most  need, and this th'ey can give themselves. The womon that does tho  least usually has more worries thaD  tho  woman  who  works."  The physician further says: "A woman has wonderful powers of endurance when it comes to great things.  She can work and support her family, if nce'd be; sho can bear grief  with heroism; she can come out of  hardest work and heaviest sorrow  with health unimpaired, but she cannot stand thc little things, the molo  hills that grow to mountains whon  she has nothing to do but to think  of them, without suffering a nervous  collapse."  "When she has no troublo, no real  responsibility, no work to do, sho  builds up bug-bears and then turns  them loose to return and frighten  her.  "For tho woman who is on the  verge of nervous exhaustion I can  advise nothing more helpful than  work. Not a mere dipping into  : something that may or may. not be  done but the taking tit of some real  and congenial occupation, the neglecting of which will mean loss and  failure. Take up something that  moans duties which "frill not only  fill up the time, but absorb the interests. Women who have nothing  to do have too much time to indulge th'eir imaginations. Th'ey make  up some horrible thing that has  never happened to them and probably never will, and really worry  about it more than they would if  it had  already  come to  them.  "To be sure, business women break  down, wear out, and often have to  give uj th'eir work. It is not work  itself that wears them out. It i.s  rivalry or competition, which means  strain. If the woman who works  would forget thnt there is such a  thing in the world as 'getting  ahead' of somebody, she would be  more successful and far more healthy. Where there is strain and thc  spirit of rivalry, there is neither  good work nor rest. At the time  of rest tho woman worries. All the  time she is working she is dividing  her time and strength, giving part  toher work and part to her worries.  The result Is, that she neither works  nor rests.  "More work and more rest is what  woman needs. Idleness will never  solve.the problems of the nervous  woman. When woman works well  and rests well she will be a well woman."-  i.  HYGIENE OF THE EARS.  The essential organs of hearing arc  placed at a depth of an inch or more  beneath the external opening of tho  ear, in a crevice within thc hardest,  strongest bone of the skull. In this  fact we find a suggestion of their  delicacy and need of^protcction. But  notwithstanding . this protected . position, disease rarely begins within  the inner ear independently of exterior influences.  In addition to' the external opening, there is another passage to the  ear, known as the Eustachian tube.  It poses from the pharynx, the upper part of the throat, directly into  the middle cavity of the ear, just inside the ear-drum. Air is forced  through" it by the act of swallowing,  and thus the drum is .inflated. Disease of the middle car, the common  cause of deafness,. generally arises  from obstruction of this tube by  adenoids or the extension through" it.  of catarrhal inflammation, fluids or  bacteria. The use of the nasal  douche is always attended with risk  on this account, and the practice of  diving. Into either fresh or salt  water, often proves injurious by permitting the passage of water directly  tlirough the nostrils and Eustachian  tube. When suppurtion has boon  established in the middle ear, lt is  "particularly "dangerous" on_������.ccduiit~of'  its liability to involve the so-called  mastoid cells, small cavities in thc  bone, and to extend from them to  thc brain, with th'o production of  meningitis. '  Disease of the middle ear is indicated by deafness, abnormal sounds,  and especially by pain. Earache  should never lie disregarded. Pouring  warm oil or glycerine ond laudanum  into the ear and the application of  heat afford temporary relief, but permanent damage may be permitted to  occur through the neglect of other  treatment. When pus begins to flow  from the ear the pain ceases, but the  discharge signifies that the drum  membrane has been perforated1.  Young infants often suffer needlessly  from unrecognized earache", although  th'ey distinctly -''.'manifest the pain  by persistent crying and tossing the  head, and by stufliing the hand into  tho moutfi or holding it to the region  of the affected ear.:  The forcible entrance of cold water  during sea-bathing often causes inflammation; hence a wad' of non-ah-  (Borbent cotton or wool should always be.inserted before entering the  water. Injury Is often inflicted also  bv attempting to remove accumulated ear-wax with such 'instruments us  hair-pins. It should be remembered,  howevor, that a trivial injury, as by  pulling or boxing tho ears, sometimes reveals, when it.docs not cause  deafness, and may throw unjust censure on the one who Inflicted th'c  punislunent.���������Youth's Companion.  . f ���������  Snow, even in tho tropics, never  well.., hut remains continuously all  the year round abovo a height of  16,000 feet; In colder climes tho  "snow lino" Is much lower than  this.  HEALTH TS SPRING.  Nature Needs    Assistance in Making- New Health-Giving Blood.  Spring is the season when your  system needs toning up. In the  spring you must have new blood as  the trees must have new sap. Nature  demands it.

BEINGS HIGHER THAN MAN  Sir  Oliver  Lodge  Speaks  to    London Workingmen.  " Sir Oliver Lodge recently went into  the East-end of London and lectured  to an audience of working-men at the  Toinbee Hall Settlement on "The  RcRlity of the Unseeii." By the unseen, said the lecturer,, he meant  those things which did not directly  appeal to tho limited senses. Tho  ant's view of lifo in its particular  way probably was quite as wide as  ours. The ant^ knew nothing of roan  and the higher animals, and in thc  same way the lecturer felt that we  were not the highest thing's in the  universe. ---  "If you once grant that there is a  race anywhere else, higher in intelligence -than we arc," h'e said," "you  have granted everything. The worm  in his world is es oblivious of man  as man is of superior intelligences.  If the. dome of St. Paul's were the  sun, the earth relatively would be a  football in a position represented by  this platform. Th'e planet Jupiter  would be at Brighton and the nearest fixed star would bo twice as far  away as the moon. THo-light of one  of those fixed stars, that at tho tail  of the great bear, was equal to 2,-  000 of our suns. That star is one  out of 500,000,000, and we are the  people that inhabit one of the little  dark limips that circulate around one  of those stars; and wo creep upon th'o  surface of this little dark lump, called the earth", and deny that there is  anything in thc universe higher th'an  man."

Vcry dashing are the black and  colored tulle hots on braid foundation. The shapes approximate to  the small, short-back sailor, and thc  tullo is put on in huge ruches and  rosettes.

A tailored coat and skirt of linen  is a practical thing if thoroughly  shrunk before making and well tailored, though the cheap coat and  skirt of linen are likely to bo distressing objects after their first tubbing.  The short skirt is not only "the"  thing, but the very short skirt is  worn by slender young matrons of  the smart sot. These skirts clear the  ground by live inches, and sometimes  more, but it must be confessed that  instead of the sensible and trim  military-heeled,, heavy-soled walking  show, they often wear the French  heeled, thin-soled creations that at  first glanco make the largest feet  appear small and the small feet positively too tiny to walk on.

ONLY ONE BEST TEA-BLUE RIBBON'S IT  LIKE OLD  CRINOLINE.  Fashionable women in London will  wear during the summer of 1905  something very closely akin to that  monstrosity of bygone days���������tho  crinoline. So large, indeed, are tho  quantities of wiro and RtPtO used by  fashionabIe>lressmakers in the manufacture of-the now spring skirts that  there is "soime justification for the  reported return of the dread crinoline.  Under the skirt is an elaborate  frame-work of wire and whalebone,  very suggestive of the crinoline. This  produces the full and outstanding effect now aimed 'at by the leading  French' dressmakers.  "In Paris quantities of wire and  steel are absorbed in the making of  all skirts of thin material," said a-  well-known court dressmaker. "For  a full ten inches below the waist th'o  skirt must fit like a glove, and this  effect can only be obtained by th'e  use of a whalebone encasement. Nine  steels���������about 7i feet���������in th'e upper  part of a skirt is an ordinary allowance, but in tlie case of plaited  skirts, every plait may require to be  held in place by five whalebones, and  in order to accelerate the straight  line from the bust to the waist,  which is a.great feature of the new  styles, a broad band of stoel is inserted in the bodice.    A single    row  of whalebone at_-. the hem,. about.  eighteen feet, insures the skirt standing out, and above this ere inserted  several, rows of wire, the quantity-  varying according to th'c texture of  the material. In tho case of a thin  voile or crepe de chine dress from  108 to 150 feet would bo necessary."  There now exists in Bothnal Green  an establishment where professional  fighting men may be hired by timorous souls who desire "protection,"  says the London Express.

At first the  purveyor of "bruisers" was inclined  to be reticient, but presently he took  the representative of the Express into his confidence.  "You would'be surprised," he said  impressively, "to know how many  members of. Parliament come to mo  for .'protection' during election time.  They simply inform me, through  th'eir agents, how many men they  need to secure their safety at meetings, and so forth, and I send down  suitable men by train.

ROUGH TREAT31ENT  The  Herald   has   throughout endeavored to be consistent  when discussing the duty on lumber, or in other  words   the   protection   of    Canadian  capitalists and workingmen generally  against  the  encroachments   of ��������� producers in the United States,  who do  not hesitate to slaughter the Provincial   market,  whensoever there is an  over-production south of the boundary.  Over and over again we have quoted  from the promises made, or representation that promises had  been   made  during    the    general   election,   that  should Liberal candidates be returned,  a   conference   would  take   place    at  Ottawa   and   western    grievances in  this particular be redressed.     He who  runs can   read  aud has  read   what  followed :   a shameless and shameful  violation of pledges.     Not a member  from   British    Columbia   has   so   fur  raised his voice upon behalf of interests  all professed to hold dear when seeking  the votes  of  the  people,   Scores of  missionaries travelled through Kootenay   and   Yale-Cariboo    argine    the  electors to vote for Messrs.  Galliher  and Duncan   Ross.

Has not the  Government long ago received petition  after petition, details after details,  representation after representation,  from all the leading lumbermen of  this Province, setting forth their  grievances and praying that a duty of  $2.00 per thousand upon rough lumber  and 30 cents per thousand upon  shingles, imported into Canada from  the United States, be imposed ?

They failed, and is it probable that  the lightweights of the church will be  able to do for the iniquities of Sir  Wilfrid Limner's policy that which  the heavyweights of the church could  not do for Hon. G. XV. Ross?���������Toronto  Telegram.  THE  HONORED  DEAD.  in the positiorfofUffairs~fo<layV  only has nothing been done,  not  only  has   the Government  violated every  inferred pledge, but then  supporters  openly taunt the lumbermen and ride  rough shod over every  argument  put  forth to   sustain   the   contentions   of  those who were cajoled iuto surrendering   their    opinions,    interests    and  confidence   to   the   keeping    of    the  tricksters at Ottawa.   Now the Winnipeg Free Press conies to the rescue,  a mere grovelling, pliant apologist for  its   masters   at    the   Capital.     That  newspaper���������and   it   is   an  influential  publication ��������� denounces   " Industrial  Canada," a Toronto journal for plead-  with the Manitoba farmer " to look at  matters from its point of view and  to  extend  reciprocal   sympathy   to    an  industry as vital to British Columbia  as wheat is to Manitoba, and the  two  provinces now  on   the threshold   of  entering Confederation, the Free Press  says :���������  The Steel Car  An instructive experiment was  made a few days ngo to demonstrate  the relative indestructibility of the  steel railroad car. A collision was  arranged, and the cats survived an  impact delivered at a, speed of forty  miles an hour. Of course an actual  have been more than serious had the I collL-ion under ordinary conditions  demand for lumber across the border  might have produced different results,  bub the experiment proved two things  at least : First, that a steel car will  bear a tremendous shock without  breaking up, and second, that it presents far less inflammable surface to  feed tlie fire that so often follows in  the wake of a wreck. Some of the  American roads have built sceel cars  for the accommodation of mail clerks,  whose usual position in >thc- first section of an express train is'little less  perilous than that" of tlie fireman and  engineer in the cab. Other railroad  companies are. likely ' to'-follow this  example at once, and it seems inevitable that in com so of time tbo stool  cur will bu employed universally on  trunk lines. This change will greatly  reduce the loss of life annually credited  to collisions, and while the initial  expense to the transportation companies will be heavier, they will be  counterbalanced by the longer life and  the greater structural stability of the  steel car, and also from the reduction  on the number of damage suits due to  accidents. The steel car cannot be  made strong enough to resist perfectly  the shock of all collisions, that it will  not telescope as re.idiiy as the wooden  car. and while it may crumple somewhat under terrific pressure, it cannot  splinter. These two advantages make  its ultimate adoption everywhere a  certainty.���������Fiee Pie. s.  not improved ?   " No time for a Commission 1"   Whj'so ?   Does  the Government contemplate deception again?  Is the jury to be a picked one selected  to do the dirty work   of partisanship,  and to report that the lumber business  in British Columbia is improving  and  was only depressed because of depression iu  Washington   state���������fully   recovering    when   normal     conditions  prevailed ?     It   certainly   boars that  coloring. Apart from this, why should  a commission not sit during ������i session  of Parliament ?     It'  the  Government  were sincere, mere  polilical   hacks or  prejudiced ministers would be tbo lust  selected to render a fair aud unbiased  verdict. The very fact that the session  is a lengthy one, should have prompted  Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagues  to expedite the investigation and  deal  with during this parliament.     But no  the    lumbermen   can   sit  arid   draw  cheques and   bite   their   linger  nails  now.     They suceu mbed to a tempting  bait in November last,  only to find it  turn to ashes in their mouths.   And of  such is the kingdom of Laurierism !

James Hill's interests, by Mr. Duncan  Ross, M.P., has naturally enough not  only awakened suspicion in the minds  of those who desire the'progress of the  whole of British Columbia, but bus  created a storm of denunciation so far  as he is concerned. The Nelson Tribune, in a lengthy article, furnishes  indubitable proof that Mr. Duncan  Ross deceived the House of Commons;  that he spoke from a text furnished  by the Great Northern Railway authorities and that he has become the  bond slave and " touter" for .a foreign  railway as opposed to the Canadian  Pacific. The Tribune tears the argument, or rather bold assertions of .Mr.  Duncan Ross, into shreds, and leaves  him in a position so far from enviable,  that even his moat ardent supporter  would be inclined to pity him.

Accompanied hy six delegates to the  seventh biennial convention of Railway Trainmen just held nt. Buffalo,  the mortal remains of one of Kamloops' most esteemed citizens, conductor D. W. Stevens, whose death  was announced last week, arrived here  yesterday morning. A few weeks ago  he left to attend the convention when  that body was called to order. The  day preceding his death he was at his  postas usual, but that night he .did  not sleep and tho next day, Friday,  felt too nervous and unstrung to hc  able to attend. At 12 noon hc was  seen by delegate T. Mitchell, of Vancouver, and wont to lic down in his  room at Castle Inn. An hour later  Mr. Mitchell went to ascertain how hc  was then feeling, but as there was no  response to a knock at the door, concluded he was sleeping. A few minutes later Fourth Vice-G rand Master  XV. T. Newman went to Mr. Stevens'  room and found him in a dying condition, the end coming a few moments  afterwards.  Word was conveyed to the convention of the sad news and an adjournment was taken for the afternoon, a  committee consisting of E. H. Cooke,  Moose Jaw, chairman; R. Walmsley,  Nelson, J. C. Waid, Winnipeg, B.  Van Home, Revelstoke, E. P. Wrye,  Brandon, and T. Mitchell, Vancouver,  to make necessary arrangements and  to escort tho remains to Kamloops.  On Saturday afternoon, the day after  his death, the remains laid in state in  convention until its close, when Grand  Master Morrisey delivered an oration  over the deceased delegate, an oration  which moved"to tears every man piesent. The grand master, who is a  speaker of great power, paid tribute  in the warmest terms to the worth of  the deceased and stated that not only  had the brotherhood lost a valued  brother, but he himself had lost a close  personal friend.  At the close of the oration the brotherhood funeral service' was read by D.  L. Cease, editor. of the Trainmen's  Journal, and the remains we're escorted  to the station by 600. delegates, the  cortege being over half a mile Jin  length.  The death of D. W, Stevens was tho  second to occui during the convention,  the first being that of G, W. Gudman-  son, delegate, from Aurora. .111., this  being the first occasion in the history  of the organization that a death took  place at any of their conventions.  Tbe funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon from the family residence at half past one, the service  being held in the Presbyterian church.'  The escort already named will act as  honorary pall bearers and membeis of  A. E. Elliott Lodge, No. 519, will be  pall bearers. Every railioad organization will be represented. It is  expected that there will be representatives from outside lodges also present.  The remains are enclosed iu a beautiful  casket, solid oak, hand carved, the  brotherhood doing everything in their  power to show the high esteem in  which the deceased was held hy them,  a sentiment shared by the railway men  and residents generally of this city.

To prohibit lt would deprive this existence of one of its few delights. It  would disinherit the unfortunate proletarians, who, possessing little else,  have yet this capital, this power, thia  poy, which ln a moment's contact  makes them the envied of the cold,  unloved, the unloving Midas.

Yet without lova  he ls without that which, tho igh tho  ecstasy be hut for an instant, llfta  mortality to paradise and makes man  believe ln Immortal bliss.        r,"  Therefore, as one1 who at least remembers her Joys, I pray that no voica  be so potent as to annihilate klsslnc.  It ls the mother's last tender prayer,  left as a seal upon the lips, the cheek,  the brow of her child.  It is the prayer of forgiveness of Innocent sinners, the unspoken sympathy with a broken heart, the pleading with the straying, the encourage*  jnent to the disheartened.  So distinctive is lt in character  that Its tender breathing on a stranger's brow will, like a magician's wand  bring back "how dear to his heart  are the scenes of his childhood," and  many an eye hard with the bitterness  of frozen tears has brimmed over with  the dew of penitence at the touch of  holy, piteous lips.  But as the greatest good ln mlsuro  becomes the weapon of foul evil, rather than prohibit kissing let a means  be suggested whereby the hungry for  this, the magic touch of youth, may In  a measure be fitted for its enjoyment,  and not in Ignorance do 111 to any,  even the least of the little ones.  First the kisser. Let the kisser  read and learn from the wisdom, tho  facts that the microscope has given  to students.  The teeth, at whose roots ls found a  deposit called tartar, if scraped oft  this "deposit will sometimes be found  In a state of decay. And the substance if placed under a powerful  microscope will be found to be, at  least in part, a mass of moving life.  It ls not necessary for any disease  to he In the mouth, throat or any part  of the body for the breath to be foul,  and odors are as sure an Indication  of danger as plain is the physician's  guide to the location of disease.  The simplest remedy for this dangerous, condition of the teeth and this  unpleasant malodorous breath is tha  application of precipitated chalk.  '"Used several times per day for diseased,teeth and gums, washed off with  ���������water and applied before sleep,'the unconscious swallowing of the. sail via  carrying some of the chalk will not  only ameliorate the unhealthy condition of the gums hut arrest decay of  the teeth. It^ will also Improve the  condition of-the stomach,, and-thus, if  there be no cancerous foot or Inflammation of the throat and Intestines,  relieve the dangerous elfect of a kiss.  Mothers should learn that the cleanliness Of a child's'mout���������'Is xnoro-noo-  essary to health th&ri a clean face.  Even cleanliness of the body is less  powerful In effect than cleanliness of  the gums. The free use of a toothbrush, not too hard, with equally free  use of precipitated chalk, will so as-  custom a child to the freshness of a  pure mouth, allied to '.he moral  .thought of pure words coming therefrom, that the result will not only he  mere healthy kissing but more healthy living.���������Mrs. George Spencer, lq  ft Y.

Stofclne Artificial Treolous St������aei  To meet the growing demand for  ���������trtlficlal Jewelry the process of mak*  Ing ''precious atones" has become  greatly improved within the last few  years, and its further development had  onllsted the service of some of tho  most skillful chemists.  The material chiefly used is glass,  _mt it ls not the ordinary glass ot  commerce. It is prepared with tha  greatest care by highly skilled artisans, for upon its clearness and perfect  homogeneity depend the_auality_o^th������^  Imitation gems, which are far superior to the cheap grade of counterfeits  that rely; on silver backings for their  lustre.  This glass can only be made from  Vbsolutely pure quartz, or, better still  from rock crystal, as quartz frequently contain minute reins of Iron, which  would impair the clearness and color  ot the gls8i. The blcarbonte of potash and ths oxide of lead which ara  mixed with lt must also be chemically  pure. Other Ingredients of less important are borax, which promotes  the flux,, and small quantity of arsenic.  The best glass for imitation gems  consists of rock crystal, 82 per cent;,  bicarbonate of potash, 17 per cent;'  and a trace of arsenic. Care-  fully preparod by competent hands,  oxide of lead, E0 per cent; borax, 1  this mixture produces a grade of glass  (which in brilliancy and Iridescence  yields little to the genuine diamond itself, and these qualities may be further enhanced by tho substitution ot  potassium for the bicarbonate of potash and an increase of the quantity at  oxide of lead used.  Stonss carefully made hy this process can only be distinguished from  the genuine by experts. This is true,  however, only so long as tbey aro  new, for Imitation gems wear off, bo-  come blind and loss their lire with  age, and lt ls to remedy these defects  that the efforts of chemists are now.  directed.  Opaque gems, like the turquoise and  the opal, are made from glass whose  transparency is destroyed by the addition of oxide of zinc after pulverization. The color ot the turquoise la  produced by aaana of oxide of coj>p������������  and cobalt.' ������������������  ������������������- ���������**  Advertise  in   The   Herald.

Mr. Travers," pretending to rmso  plates ln the river Thames, looked perpetually toward Miss Daisy Middleton,  industriously engaged in packing  dishes.  "Don't you tWnk I might take you  out in that canoe?"  "But canoes are ao unsafe. Perhaps  If Miss Maltby would come with uu it  [would be steadier."  Mr. Travers saw light in tlie unklnd-  nessand willingly sacrificed a victim.  "Without ln any way wishing to deny  the merits of Miss Maltby," be said,  "she would add more than' a leather-  weight. Besides, in adopting an Invention like canoes from tho Choctaw?,  one must conform to their custom."  , "Which is?" asked Miss Mlddleton.  "Based on the tribal motto, 'Two's  company.' The canoes were constructed  accordingly and only hold two."  "Then there would" not bo room for  Mr. Congreve?" she asked.  "I fancied he was making daisy  chains," said Mr. Travers.  Now, it Miss Mlddleton had been  averse to the voyage thin foolish remark would have left Mr. Travers solitary. But she was not. She suffered  herself to be constrained���������not too  readily.  "A girl I knew," said Mr. Travers,  thoughtfully, "used to tell me that she  was quite nervous until she had tried a  canoe, but in the end she thought them  otherwise. She even wanted to get encaged in a canoe."  "Did you gratify her wish?" acked  Miss Mlddleton with a rush of dignity.  "I should like to know your opinion  of a boat as a popping place," he persisted.  "Suppose," she s^d,~"the man wanted to go down on his' knees���������just to  emphasize his wishes���������that would Bet  It rolling, to begin with.  Mr. Travers was willing to entertain  that supposition.  "Then suppose the girl said ���������No?'"  ��������� Mr. Travers preferred not to supposo  anything unpleasant.  "Still, if she did," said MIsb Middle-  ton, "the man would start up in a very  bad temper and begin stamping about."  Mr. Travers was positive that no man  would be guilty of such conduct.  "Then, again, if the girl didn't say  'No," she would probably expect"������������������  n "What?" asked Mr. Travers.  ' Miss Mlddleton had unfortunately  forgotten the sequence of her sentence.  "But I must know, Daisy," he said  earnestly. He ceased to paddle and ths  eanoe began to roll. "Would she expect"   Continuous was the rolling of tho  canoe.  "We shall he over, I'm sure," said  Miss Middleton���������"please���������yes���������yes���������  yes"���������   .  "At any rate the man expects "  eald Mr. Travers; and the rolling continued.  When 6ome time later the canoe returned to the meadow from which lt  started the voyagers' were grieved to  perceive the tea was already almost  finished.- -  "You shouldn't bave been : making  daisy chains, Congreve," said Mr.  Travers irrelevantly.  ��������� "What does he mean?"

He won this sacred regard by  his military genius, for to him more  than to any other individual was due  the crushing of the Taeping rebellion���������  that bloody - convulsion which for  years devaeted the richest provinces of  China and cost millions of lives. '  He was born in Salem, Mass., in 1823,  end.from boyhood sought desperate adventures. Balked of a West Point education, he went to sea. At the outbreak  of the Crimean war he joined the  French army, but after his arrival at  the front he had a quarrel with his superior officer and was allowed to resign.  After taking part in Walker's filibustering expedition again Nicaragua, he  Ehipped aB a sailor on a vessel bound  tor China.  He reached Shanghai ln 1859. The  city was in a panic. Chung Wang, the  __greatest.ofJthe.TaspXng Generals, had  reached~Sung~ Kaing," eighteen miles  away. The foreign powers .were doing  nothing. In despair the merchants of  Shanghai proclaimed a reward of $200-  000 to any body of foreigners who  >would drive the Taeplngs from Sung  Kiang.  Ward presented himself to the chief  merchant and enteral Into a contract  by which he was to receive the entire  reward if he should raise a force and  capture Sung Kaing.  He gathered under his standard 100  European and American sailors, and ln  the face of great difficulties marched oa  the enemy. In a pitched battle before  the walls of Sung Kiang he drove back  6,000 Taeplngs, but retreated when  another force attacked his flank.  On his next expedition from Shanghai he was reinforced by a body of lm-  ' (perial Chinese troops, whom he"designed to use for'holding the places  mon by himself" and his soldiers of fortune. This time he captured the city,  although outnumbered a hundred to  fine.  The only reverses he encountered  mere In two successive attempts to  capture Sing Po while the defenders  iwere commanded by an Englishman  Darned Savage.

Brought to trial by the foreign Consuls of Shanghai for violating the neutrality laws of his country, he estapeil  by swearing that he was no longer an  'American citizen, but a Chinese subject.

A stout, red-faced man was seated  at the tabic next to ours; a corpulent, vulgar-looking individual, with  bleared, watery oyes, and a large,  shiny bald head. The man disgust-  ed me. Ho carried with him an air  of such complete satisfaction and  smug pomposity that I inwardly  marked him down as a hypocrite and  a humbug. He was "Humble" incarnate, on'y he had exchanged his  parochial uniform for badly-fitting  evening-dress.  "Awful-looking creature sitting  next to us!" I whispered to my  friend.  Sir Charles Sauve turned round,  glanced at thn man idly, raised his  eyebrows, and the two nodded to  one another.  "I apologize for what I said," I  whispered again; "I liad no idea  that he was a friend of yours."  "Only  an  acquaintance.     Not    cxr  actly beautiful, is Ke?" answered Sir  Charles.  *   Sir   Charles    relapsed  into  silence,  and the subject dropped.  Presently we heard the hoarse  voice of a newsboy screaming  through' the streets, "Assassination  of tho Grand Duke Sergius in Moscow; latest  details;  official."  The fat, red-faced man immediately  ordered the waiter to bring him a  paper, aud, looking over his shoulder, I noticed that h'e paid no attention to tho account of the Crand  Duke's murder, but was engrossed in  the sporting columns.  "Your friend doosm't seem much  interested in politics," I said to Sir  Charles.  "Doesn't  h'e?    Then   he's  a     wise  man."  1.  assassination is  a ter-  It  ���������; seems that  more  But this  riffle thing,  will follow."  "Probably. I have lost all interest in such matters."'  "Since whenl?" I asked, with a  laugh, knowing that my friend had  been for years embroiled in thc secret matters of State.  "Since the murder of Princo Nicholas���������some ten years ago."  "Yes, I remember���������terrible, wasn't  it?"  "Very    amusing,    I    thought it,"  answered  Sir  Charles,   with a slight  twinkle in his grey eyes.  "Amusing!     Why?"  "Because I  was in. Warsaw at thc  time."  Sir Charles knocked the ash off  his cigar and called for some moro  coffee,  and told mo the story:  Some ten years ago (h'e said, in  his quiet monotone), I was engaged  on certain matters in Warsaw. Officially I was an English tourist,  busy collecting materials for a book  on the rolish' people, but I may tell  you in confidence that 1 had to perform some other duties of���������of a���������  #well, "a private character. One of  my duties was to know everything  that took place in and .*bout Warsaw. I knew a great many things  th'at were not generally known at  the time, and never will be known  to th'e public. I kno'w th'at Prince  Nicholas, who was loathed and hated throughout the length aird  breadth of Poland, tfwned a private  house in one of the suburbs of Warsaw. I knew that h'u used this house  as a retreat when tKere seemed more  likelihood than usual of the people  putting        their openly-expressed  threats of murder  into  execution.  I discovered, one evening in October. 1894, that his hiding-place  had become known to his enemies. I  called on him at once, and he received me very civilly for a Russian  prince���������thai is to say, h'e treated me  as something between a dog and a  harmless lunatic. He raged and  stamped about tho room, kicked  some of the furniture to pieces, and  swore that I was mistaken;  "I must tell your Imperial High-  __ ncss_ag,aln_thafr_this_h'ouse_has_been  discovered by the Revolutionaries,  and that you are henceforth* a marked man in Warsaw," l said obstinately.  He consigned me to the nether  regions, and told me in plain English that I  was a liar.  1 left him and his house in rather  a ted temper, but before leaving the  street I noticed that the house immediately fronting the one occupied  by Prince Nicholas was empty. This  looked rather serious, and before the  next morning: I had a key to the  empty house in my possession.  As soon as night fell I left my hotel and slipped into tho empty dwelling-place. I examined the rooms  and oflices with scrupulous care, and  found nothing to excite my suspicion. At the same time I was determined to keep a close eye on the  old mansion, as it afforded on ideal  plnce of concealment for a would-be  murderer of Prince Nicholas. Whon  I closed the front, door I silently inserted a tiny whalebone pin in the  crevice between the door and its  frame. Tf the door was opened the  pin would be disloged, and I should  know that somebody in my absence  had entered the house. I managed  aflairs so well that the house was  taken out of the hands of agents,  and was no longer advertised for  sale. Thus anyone entering it did  so with an ulterior motive.  All went well for three days. Kvery  night I made it my business to walk  through the street and examine the  door, and thc head of my whalebone  pin was fast becoming discolored  with dust. J began to think that,  things were not so serious as I had  imaginvi  th'om.  Meanwhile, the conduct of Frineo  Nicholas can only be described as insane. Jle caused it to be officially  announced that be was living with,  only two servants in the retreat op  posite to the empty house, and the  announcement naturally caused a  flutter of excitement throughout  Warsaw. Also, ho developed a habit of reading and going through  his papers every evening in a front  room looking out into the streot.  On these occasions the room would  be ablaxe with electric light, and tho  head and shoulders of the princo  wero perfectly silh'ouetted on the  window-Wind. Such conduct as this  you may well aay was������suicidal.  Still, everything remained quiet,  and the prince wrote mo a joking letter, in which h'e laughed at> iny fears  and expressed tlio conviction that he  was the besrt-loved man in Poland  and Russia. I put the letter into a  curio box, and replied ^\th live  worda���������a lull before a storm..''  II.  Then camo the night of tho catastrophe.  I left my hotel as usual, and I  walked briskly in" ths direction of  the prince's residence.  Thero hc was, as usual, seated by  the window, and apparently engrossed in his books and papers. The  room was brilliantly lighted, and his  large head was perfectly silhouetted  against the window-blind. I looked  at hinr, cursed h.s imprudence, and  crossed the road to the empty liouse.  I felt along the crevice of tlie door  for my pin.    It liad gone.  I recognized the significance of  this in an instant. Someone had  opened the door and had entered the  house during my absence, and my  pin had been dislodged from its position and was now probably buried  deep in the snow,.  I glanced up hastily at the prince's  residence opposite. There he sat,  nodding over his papers, and evidently completely unconscious of his  danger. I stepped back into thc  roadway and looked up at the windows of the ompty house. What I  saw sent the blood running chilly  through my veins.  The bottom of the second-floor  window had been opened about two  inches, and through' this tiny aperture, pointing straight at the prince  opposite, was thrust the nozzle of a  gun. In an instant I had bounded  up th'e steps of the old house, thrust  my key into the lock, and flung  open the door. I stumbled blindly  forward in the darkness, and the  door slammed behind me.  As I reached the first landing I  lurched forward with a cry of horror  on my lips. Tlic deafening report of  a rifle-shot rang out through the silence of th'e night, and I heard the  sound   of  splintering  glass.  I liad come too late. The unknown  murderer had accomplished his task.  I felt that Princo Nicholas was a  dead man. I was too excited to  think of personal danger, and with  a. wild heart- sprang madly up the  stairs.  In the darkness I stumbled again.  The door of the second-floor front  room Was Hung ojen upon inc. and  thc concussion nearly knocked me off  my feet. Tho next moment the revolver was wrenched from my hand.  A huge form fluntz itself upon me  and dragged me, panting, to t.he  landing lloor.  Th'e murderer had closed with me.  I was fighting in th'o dark with an  unknown miscreant, who I felt  would think more of a pinch of srnul.  th'an taking my life. One of his  great hands was on my mouth', but  I gripped him firmly round the body  and we rolled over and over together in the; darkness.  Even at that moment, when my  life hung upon a thread, I heard the  hoarse sliouts of a crowd rising to  us from, the street, and I knew for  a certaintv that Prince Nicholas had  been 'murdered.  I remember wondering why the assassin did not make use of the revolver which lie wrenched from my  grasp. My brain seemed to be on  fire, my heart thumped desperately  against my breast, and my eyes  strained in  their sockets.  Then I lost consciousness. Darkness  crowded into my brain, and I felt  th'at I was dying. The giant hands  round my throat never relaxed their  awful grip for an instant, and I felt,  the lifo being squeezed out of my  body,   honors. TKat will bo th'o funeral of  Prince Nicholas���������and I shall attend  tho ceremony in a private capacity."  "But-^but what do you propose to  do now?"  "To live at my ease as a private  gentleman in that sleepy-headed  country called Kngland."  Tlio crowds wero still shouting otit  in the streets when the "dead  prince" let me out of the old house  through a back entrance. Next day  Russia was in nn uproar; Europe  also. I attended the funeral with  tho prince's two faithful servants.  As wc lookod at one another we almost winked, and it was rather difficult to keep a straight face .when  we saw th'e prince himself, standing  with bowed head, amongst the  crowd of onlookers. That is my  little story.  My senses were ^cleared by tihe  splutter of a match. Hardly realizing whether I was alive or dead, f  dragged myself up to a sitting posture. A face peered at me through  the darkness, and I sank back into  unknown arms, transfixed with terror and amazement.  I wns in the arms of Prince Nicholas himself.  Outside in the street T could dimly  hear the people shouting that Prince  Nicholas was murdered, but the man  himself wns before me in llesh and  blood.  "Not a word," said l.li<; prince,  with  a grin.  "But what does it mean? What  lias happened?" I gasped in wonderment.  "It means that E am dead; that  I have shot myself. T will explain  everything, only you must keop  quiet. You nearly spoilt everything  with' that shooter of yours. Tf it  had gone off we should have been  discovered. Now, I believe ypu know  that I am���������or, rather, wasi���������the best  hated man in Russian Poland. My  life was not worth a minute's purchase. I knew this and determined  to end it���������to end the horror of nn  existence blighted b.v the prospect  of imminent death. I knew sooner  or later I should be assassinated, so  I determined to do the business myself. I took the mansion opposite  the empty house for that purpose.  Kvery night I placed a wax dummy  of myself by tho window of my second-floor room for the same purpose. But nobody shot my dummy,  although I waited for over n week,  and at last I was obliged to do  the thing myself, My two servants  are in tlio secret; my head is sii[.posed to have been smashed by a rifle-  bullet-; ind in a few days the body  of n Russian peasant, who died this  morning, will be interred with' Royal  Sir Charles Sauve drank up his  coffee and relit his cigar.  "Shall we go to a theatre for an  hour?"  h'e said,  with a yawn.  "Yes,  I  don't  mind."  As wc rose to leave th'o restaurant  the hideous red-faced man,' who was  seated next to us, nodded to my  friend  again.  "What a dreadful-looking creature!" I whispered, as we walked  out. '  "As I said, he is not beautiful,"  answered Sir Charles; "but the  newspapers used to call lvim vory  handsome when ho was Prince Nicholas���������of Holy Russia."���������London Answers.   -*   DOGS  AND DEER.  Travellers' Adventure   in the Wilds  of  Siberia.  Tho strength ..of heredity, both in  wild and in domesticated animals, is  brought into clear light by an incident related in a recent book, "In  Search of a Siberian Klondike." Tho  authors of the book wero travelling  by dog-team through the wilds' of  Siberia.  At four o'clock in tho afternoon  tho dogs suddenly broke into a swift  run, and we knew they had scented  something that interested them. We  soon perceived that wc had struck a  deer train, and that we were ncaring  an encampment. We turned a bend  in the road, and there, a hundred  yards ahead of us, we saw the cause  of the dogs' excitement.  "A team of reindeer were running  for their lives. Their Tungus driver  Was lashing them with tho whip, and  was urging them with all his might,  for he know as woll as we that if our  dogs overtook them before the camp  was reached, we seven men would be  utterly powerless to prevent the dogs  from "tearing thc deer to pieces. Our.  driver put on the brake with all his  might, but it had not the least effect. The fourteen dogs had become  wolves in thc turn of a hand, and no  brake could stop them. There were  many ntumps and othei' obstructions  along our way, and my driver had  great difficulty in prevently a Bmash-  up.  For a short time the deer held  their own, and in fact gained on us;  but before the yurta (village) came  in sight we were gaining rapidly.  While we were still at some distance  the people of the village, warned by  the cries of thc dogs, comprehended  what wns the matter, and arming  themselves with sticks ancl spears,  come running toward us. As they  came on they spread out in a fanlike formation across the trail. Whon  tho territied deer reached the line, the  men spread out and and let the team  through, and instantly closed again  to dispute the passage of our dogs.  Our driver was nowise minded to  let the natives club his dogs, and  perhaps injure the valuable animals,  so hc resorted to the lasl expedient.  Giving a shout of warning to me, he  'suddenly, by a deft motion, turned  our sledge completely over, landing  me in a snow-drift on my head. In  this position the sledge was all  brake, and the dogs were forced to  stop. They were leaping in their harness and yelling like fiends incarnate.  I sat up in the snow-bank and  laughed. The other drivers had followed our example, and the struggling tangle of sledges, harness, dogs  and men formed a scene that to the  novice at least was highly ludicrous  The driyers_ and the village people  wl^^nf(3'^dring==th������r=-aB"sSrTiTfd=thoi  entire herd of reindeer belonging to  the village was escaping in all directions up  the hills.  The reader may well ask how tho  natives can use both dogs and reindeer, if the sight of a deer has such  a maddening effect on the dogs. The  explanation is simple. The two never  go together. There is the dog country and the deer country, but they  do not overlap. Confusion is often  unavoidably caused by travelling  with  but the  part, knowing thnt. if they them  selves have to travel with deer  through a dog country they will  cause finite as  much  inconvenience.

Some curious and remarkable reasons are assigned for the desire  everybody has for sleeping. It is  attributed by some peoplo to an accumulation in tho system of tho  poisonous products of tha wear und  tear of the body during- the day.  There seems'to be some measure of  truth in this, for in mnny- diseases  the patients aio often sleepless. Another hypothesis is that the herve-  ci'lls of the brain dwell apart from  each -other, as it were, Id.r.ing' sleep.  Th.! bruin is composed of millions of  tiny bodies called cells, each liaving  several delicate prolongations, or  brunches, for the purposo of communicating with other cells. When  the brain is fully active all these  cells are in contact, or ready to bo  iu'contact; witli one another; but tlio  lime occasionally conies, it is  thought, when the branches of all  the colls curl up, and llieir isolation  means that complete communication  between the. cells cease. Tlie state  of body and mind tliat follows is  what wc call sleep. The most probable explanation.?* of sleep, however,  is Ihal in some way or other tho internal condition of the cells is  changed, partly from exhaustion,  and partly because of diminished stimulation from other parts of the  body.  Majority of Men Would   Be   Better  Off Were Their Wives the  Bankers.  Hero is a question of great importance that usually nover comes up for  decision until the husband lias made  a thorough failure of his administration of affairs, and the wife, in order to save what sho may from the  wreck of the family foi-tunes, takes  the reins of management into her  own hundd and pulls matters together.  And liow firmly and capable she  readjusts tho (lanances of tho establishment! As to the maimer liorn,  she sifts matters through and  tlirough, adds up the liabilities, calculates the assets, settles debts, and  thon, with" whatsoever exchequer shtt  has at h'er command, orders her  household on the lines it can support. With mathematical precision  sho apportions to their various uses  tlio sums hor husband gives over  to her charge, nursing each with  nicest care, so that she receives  value for it to tho uttermost farthing.  EVERY WIFE  A  BANKER.  It is not exactly the woman's province to bo a financier;' that is why  fow women, when they marry, suggest that they should hold the purse.  The lifo thoy prefer is tho sheltered  one, that does not come into immediate coavtact with such matter-of-fact- >  affairs as pounds, shillings, and  pence.  But that the majority of men do  well to invito their wives to become  their bankers is an absolute fact,  and ono to which many a husband  who has tried and failed at the task  himself could bear emphatic witness.  For, directly a woman is placed in a  position of responsibility such aa  this, she becomes keenly alive to tlio  opportunities it altyrds her of making d dollar go much further than  dollars handed over to bo spent at  random usually oo, and also of putting something by for a rainy day,  or for some treasured scheme that,  under ordinary circumstances', would  only prove a dream of midsummer  madness.  A wife adores being made bor husband's partner in tlie material affairs of existence as well as th'e  sharer of h'is hours of relaxation and  happiness. It fills her with pride  to feel that into hcr hands ho entrusts his earnings in order that she  may mako th'o most of thc money,  and save wliat she can out of it, for  th'eir mutual benefit and that of -  th'eir children.  PROWESS . OP WOMEN. !  She takes a rare delight in studying-ways and means, then; ��������� she ��������� indulges in ' ambitious hopes ' and  schemes for her husband's -futuro and '���������  hcr children's education. Little by  little she sots by fa store of cash  that'no temptation, oven though- it  take tho guise of the .most beautiful  hat ever constructed, will induce hor  to break into. And how triumphant  sh'o feels when she discloses her  horde, ancl gives her' -husband an  account of her successful stewardship!  Th'is system of making tho wife tho  family financier i.s tho secrot of tho ;  many well-to-do middle-class families  in Franco, where madamo holds tho  purse, antl evon in many instances  directs th'o business, ��������� and monsieur is  vory well content to be just hcr  faithful aide-de-camp. Few Englishmen would care to load their wives  with so great, a woigiht of responsibility as the one the French" wifo  cheerfully accepts. But they would  do wisely to give them just a little  morc opportunity then they do to  prove themselves the able' administrators of an income ihat thoy are.  There are good reasons for th'o natural prowess of women as chancellors of the exchequer, and nmongst  the most potent is this: Supposed  though they are not to know th'o  value of money, they most certainly  do know what the lack of it means.  Even the wives of millionaires think  in cents whore their husbands think  in_ dollars, .because: their financial  horiMns^diMr^s^absoliilely. Tlio5^  wife's is 'bounded by an allowance;  the. husband's is limitless. Hence it  is th'at a sense of detail becomes  highly developed in the wifo. and it  is Just this sense of detail that is  an ingredient of such vital importance in  the making of  A SUCCESSFUL BANKER.  A banker turns his money ovor  again and again. If tlio (lay wero  cight-and-forty hours long instead of  four-and-twenty, he would bo found  thinking out and developing schemes  whereby to make interest with safety  on tlic capital at his command. That  is what tho banker of the household  does.  :  The money she has to deal with is  the pivot upon which her plans turn.  She is the specialist in spending and  saving, and in these days it is th'o  specialist in any subject who scores  most.  So, supposing there, are reasons for  thinking tliat the family exchequer  needs overhauling, why not appoint  a new chancellor - forthwith', and let ... ;  that chancellor be the capable little  woman-.whoso -whole soul seems to  be in her baby's cradle, but who  will, if you ask her nicely, turn he*  attention also to your money affairs, _  and bring them to a remarkably wiso  and satisfactory issue?���������London Answers.  ��������� ���������   THE  RETORT  SCARIFYING.

"Have you congratulated our  hostess oil her birthday" "No,"  answered Miss Cayenne; "i have condoled with .her!" Barrington went' off to consume her  own lunch with a sensation of hearty  approval.  "And now," sho told herself, "now  I must wait until to-morrow morning and seo what happens!"  Sho actually spent twopence more  than usual on her lunch that day in  viow of tho probability of tho cheque.  Miss Ethel Harrington toiled fitfully us a tiiiiirthnnd writer and typist  in tho giimy otlices of Messrs. Way-  hurt and Browne in Muirgate Street.  Unlike the overage typist of fiction  nnd the exceptional typist of reality,  she was plain, dowdy, and unamia-  blo. Tier views of life were bounded  on tho nortii, south, east, and west  by what i.s popularly known as tho  "main chance," anil'she was mercenary to an inordinate degree.  One evening, whilst waiting for tho  train to convey her, to Not ting Hill,  where she lived with her sister, tho  young lady chanced to espy a copy  of that well-known periodical The  Ladies' Pantechnicon, a journal  which gives hints on woll-nigh overy  subject denr to womon���������from th'e  rearing ot babies to the destruction  L of moths,  and  from the securing    of  ain't mistook.'  At four o'clock that afternoon Hig-  gins, the olll<Jo-boy, opened his mouth  to an alarming extent and grinned  violently. '"Era's a rummy go," ho  muttered. "This is a bit of orlright.  Not  'arf."  He had been scanning tho lettor-  book and had espied the love-loiter���������  hence tho youth's mirth.  Without an instant's hesitation ho  seized tho book in his grimy paws  and convoyed it to Miss Barrington's  tablo.  "'Art a minit, miss, if you please."  Miss Barrington flushed. Sho took  in thn situation on the instant,  though, strangely enough, she had  not anticipated this very probable  contingency.  "Well.  Higgins,   what  is  it?":  "I think this 'ero letter 'as bin  copied by you  in horror,  miss, if    I  A    husband    to ; the   dismissal "of a  .-cook.  The train rushed and roared into  the station. Miss Barrington entered a sacond-clpss carriage (though  sho possessed a third-class ticket)  and openod the paper. Her eyes  .glanced fitfully from page to ; page,  until at length they became riveted  a short story called "Mr. Ren-  ���������shaw's  Typist."  Being herself a member of the  topping profession, she naturallv  was interested in fiction that dealt  with the same, and she perused the  ���������story  with  keen attention.  The tale was not altogether striking. It dealt with the fortunes of a  .young and pretty typist, whoso employer, a philanthropic old gentleman, whom one rarely meets outside  the realms of fiction, had conceived  for his employe a deep aud abiding  worship. On the vory eve of "proposing marriage he discovered in tho  ���������firm's letter-book a love-letter from  -the girl" to her sweetheart, which  ���������somehow had become involved with  tho official correspondence. In that  ������rtless note sho conveyed to her des  pondont lover that sho could never  hope to become his wife until ������500  was secured, wherewith ho might pur-  ���������chase a much-coveted partnership in  a City firm. Naturally, tho old gentleman, like most of his fictional predecessors, sent for the girl, read her  a short lcctureOon her carelessness,  i -nntl concluded by handing her a  ���������cheque for ������500 to buy, tho young  man the partnership. The. story ended with a touch of pathos, and Miss  Barrington  was highly impressed.  "I wish to goodness old Wayhart  would treat me in "a similar manner," sho pondered. "I could do  with a hundred pounds or so, and ho  ���������could well afford it."  ��������� A sudden thought .illumined her  ���������bruin. Suppose she were to imitate  -tho. example of tho heroine of tho  magazine story and indite a letter to  ���������an imaginary sweetheart on the same  lines as that which she hadjust read  sin print. Supposo sho wero to copy  tho .communication in the firm's let-  terTbcok, where Mr. Wayhart would  i be certain to espy it, and then await  tho development of events.  "It is just' possible he might be  inclined to come down handsomely,"  she told herself, "for upon my word,  there are times when I half" fancy  thnt -he is in lovo with me. People  say that he is wildly unselfish, and  probably ho is just the man to act  as the old fool in the story acted.  Anyhow, I will try tho experiment  and see what comes of- it. It cannot  do any harm, and there is every  chance  of  it doing good.",.  Miss Barrington sought her couch  that evening in a condition of keen  excitement, and sleep refused to visi  hor brain for many hours. When at  length it came, her slumber was- filled with dreams of cheques for all  * sorts and conditions of extraordinary amounts.  Noxt  morning  she  went to  tho office, and as soon as a lull in the work  J, occurred the girl set herself  to     the  ���������composition of  the letter.   When  iin-  oshed, it ran thus:���������  27,   Quexfield  Road,   Notting  Hill, W.   My_Own_Darling_Harry���������I_am-writ--  ! ing this  letter in     the intervals,   of  oflice   work.      How   much I  enjoyed  our walk last Sunday, doar, and how  brave it is of you to speak as    you  spoke then.   Yes,  if you aro  .willing  to  wait for me,  dear Harry,  then   I  also am more than content to  wait  1 for you; but, oh!  it seems very, very  .hard     that    our.youth  should  pass  'away leaving us still  apart.-  'Ah,   if  only  that  ������500  of which you spoke  were  in  your possession,   how  different  everything  would  bo!   For  then,  dear, you could buy that partnership  of which you told me,  and all would  be  well    for   both    of. us.   But,     of  f'-course,. it is foolish to oven think of  sueh happiness, for ������500 is a    sum  as  far away from both  of us as the  -s'ln  or moon.   Still,  my darling,  wo  -must  be patient  and  watt,  and perhaps one day    the good fortuno ���������   of  which wo both dream may come   to  us when we least expect it.   For it is  always,     dear,     the unexpected   that  happens..   Au   revoir. -I must    wind  up now as I have to go. on with my  wprk,.ond    so,  with heaps    of love,  nind apologizing, dear, for typing this  letter, I am, with a thousand kisses,  Evor your loving Ethel.  "There,"    murmurod   tho   ingenious  young lady,  as she read the    words  of the letter with very keen Satisfaction. "There!  I am sure, that sounds  natural onough, and not a soul would  believe that Harry is a fabulous personage and that the partnership is a  myth."  At ono o'clock the majority of tho  staff wont to lunch. Miss Barrington  seized tho letter, together with half-  a-dozen official communications, and  walked to the little room whero the  copying press Blood. She frequently  copied letters whon tho ofllce-boy was  out, anti Bho therefore:knew that nobody would consider hnr present action at all unusual. Two mlnul.es  biter the batch of missives, including  the love-letter,  had  been duly copied  Assuming an expression of chagrin  and amazement tho girl replied,  quickly:���������  "Good heavens, how silly.of me."  "Shall I tear it hout,  miss,     and  stick in another sheet?"  '  "No.   Leave the book here, and    I  will'do it myself."  "Very good,   miss."  .The boy retired,  grinning from ear  to   oar,   and   for  one   moment     Miss  Barrington  was    nonplussed, but    it  was only for a momont.   Summoning  Higgins  to her    side,  sho dispatched  him on an errand,  and then without  furth ado knocked at Mr. Wayhart's  door.  "Come in," said a kindly voice and  a moment later the girl had onlered  the room.  Mr. Wayhart might have sat for a  model to the artist who had illustrated tho short story in The Ladies'  Pantechnicon. Ho was stout, rubicund, and genial, though occasionally  a flash of sternness grew into his  eyos.  "Well, Miss Barrington," ho said,  heartily.    "What is it?"  "I beg your pardon for disturbing  you, sir," sho said, softly. "But I  am not quite sure whether I showed  you that letter to Wilson and Timmins which you asked me to . have  copied this morning."  He' looked up- quickly. "Oh, ah  thanks, thanks." ho replied. "Now  I como to think of it, I went out  just as you were about to bring me  the letter-book. Sond it in at once,  if you please."  "Certainly,  sir."  Higgins had returned by this time,  but, fearing lest ho 'should open the  book en routo to tho private oflice,  sho dispatched tho volume by a junior clerk.r Then sho resumed her  work, .but found herself unable to  concentrate her attention on the  machine, for the mercenary young  woman's heart was beating liko a  piaton-rod.     ~  Would her ruse bring about tho desired end, or would the partner simply dismiss tho incident with a word  of caution, or disregard it altogether?  The minutes woro into hours,   but  a certain letter which I cannot believe forms any part of this firm's  corresp ondence.' '���������  Miss Barrington uttered a cry of  well-assumed amazement. "Indeed,  sir," sho quivered. "What sort of  letter?"  "It would appear remarkably, like  a lovc-lettor," replied the senior  partner, sternly. "And, obviously,  it was written by you."  Then opening the book, he pushed  it towards hor, and said abruptly,  "Thoro it is."  The typist uttered another cry of  assumed amazement. "Oh, how stupid���������how terribly stupid of me," she  exclaimed, in a high-pitched tono.  "Really, sir, I am very, very sorry."  Mr. Wayhart smiled pitifully,  "young peoplo will bo young peoplo,  I know," ho returned, in a more  kindly tone; 'but in business ono  should always exercise spocial care."  "It shall never occur again, sir,"  sho said.  "I am quito confident of that,"  replied the partner, firmly, and then  a abort pause ensued.  All wus going admirably, the girl  told -herself. Mr. Wayhart had behaved almost exactly as tho "Mr.  Renshaw" of tho story had behaved,  for had not tho latter personage also  opened the ball by a species of mild  reproof that he might pave the way  for what was to como? Yes, all was  progressing splendidly, and ahe be-  tho  ������500.  "You will not be surprised to  learn," said the old gentleman, after  the pause had worn to its end���������"you  will not be surprised to learn that I  havo tak'en the liberty of reading  that letter."  Miss Barrington nodded. "I���������I  hopo you don't think the worse.of"me  for writing to���������to my fiance, sir?"  she faltered.  "Not at all; but I wish you would  confine your correspondence to -after-  business hours, and not allow your  epistles to find their way into the  firm's official letter-books."  Then, of a sudden, a mighty wave  of joy swept the girl's frame, for  she saw the old gentleman's hand  stretch towards a certain drawer in  which sha was woll conscious of the  fact that ho kept his cheque-book. It  was coming now, she told herself,  and  the ruse had  succeeded.  Mr. ' Wayhart opened' the drawer  and extracted from it the long, yellow-backed cheque-book, Then he  opened it and took up his pen.. He  inserted the date and then paused,  whilst a. gleam of sorrow shot into  his oyes.-  The words of the story In The  Ladies' .Pantechnicon appeared to  float to Miss Barrington's ears. "As  Mr. Renshaw took- up nis pen it  seemed to Maude that there was a  look in his grey eyes which told of  ineffable sorrow���������of illimitablo regret." The typist's heart was now  beating to a triumphant tune," and  her eyea peered over the partner's  shoulder.  Good heavens!

As ho quitted the room he bade her  good-night  with a somewhat     acute  glanco,   and Miss    Barrington      told  herself that the old man had read tho  letter and  was  already beginning  to  take a deeper interest in her than he  had evinced beforo.  She dived into her drawer and procured the magazine. Opening the periodical at the page headed "Mr. Ren-  shaw's  Typist,"     the    young      lady  rapidly scanned    the talo until    she  encountered the following words:  "It  seemed to Maude- that her employer  regarded her with a very keen glance  as he went out of tho office���������a glanco  which sho was utterly at a loss   to  explain."

Tho ������500 seemed very near now.  Mr. Wayhart was seated at his  table when the young lady mado her  appearance. Ho glanced upwards  quickly, and uttered a brief "Good  morning."  "Good morning, sir," (replied the  typist, and then Waited for what was  to  follow.  Mr. Wayhart continued the writing  on which ho was engaged, and thon,  having finished the work, turned towards his employe. "Er, do you soo  lliis letter-book.

This is a  record, even among Orientals; but  almost equally small causes have  many times brought about similar  great events, although on a less  wholesale scale.  In Paris, for instance during Cardinal Mazarin's sway, it was a child  slinging stones in front of the  haughty ecclesiastic's palace that  provoked tho terrible insurrection of  tho Frondours (slingers)���������an insurrection which deluged the capital in  blood, and changed for the time being th'o current of French history.  Tho United States, again, might be  British territory at this present moment, had not Theophilus Lillie, a  Boston shopkeeper' in a little back  street, persisted in selling British  goods after thoy wero tabooed. His  obstinacy excited and;angered tho  Peoplo, who attacked his shop. One  of his assistants, John Richardson,  thereupon fired on the mob, killing a  lad named Christopher Snider.  The latter was at onco christened  the "First Martyr of Liberty," . and  his body was followed to its last  resting-place by no fewer than ono  hundred thousand persons: Inflammatory speeches wore delivered .-.' at  the graveside, " and these quickly  found an echo all over the country,  and in a little while thereafter tho  embers of revolt  BURST INTO  OPEN FLAME.  That,, flame, thus lightly kindled,  was not finally extinguished until  October, 1781, when Lord Cornwal-  lis and his entire army of seven  thousand mon surrendered to General Washington at Yorktown.  A multiplicity of toll-gates was tlie  cause of the extraordinary "Rebecca" insurrection, which broke out  in North Wales in 1843. Parties of  five and six hundred men, armed and  mounted, used nightly to traverse  the counties of Carmarthen, Pembroke, Cardigan, and Brecon. They  were always led by a tall man, dressed in female attire, and it was at  his command always that the toll-  gates wero thrown down and the  toll-houses, burnt.'  Large bodies of military.'- were sont  into tho disturbed districts, but so  well did the "Rebeccaites" keep  thoir- councils, and' so secretly did  they manage tlieir forays, that no  effectual check could bo put upon  their proceedings; and in the end  they succeeded in demolishing practically all the obnoxious barriers in  the districts where they operated.  Much discussion has arisen regarding the curious title adopted by  these insurrections, but the most  generally received opinion is that  it was derived" originally from the  Biblical story of Rebecca and Isaac:  "Let thy seed," said the bride's relatives and friends, "possess the  gates of those which hate thee."  THE   WHISKY   INSURRECTION.  is the namo given by American 'historians to a very serious outbreak  which occurred in Pennsylvania and  Virginia, owing to an attempt to  levy a special duty on spirits. Officers sent to enforce the new statute  were violently resisted, and Federal  troops were thereupon marched ' into  the district. This enraged the people still more, the rising became  general, and many shocking outrages  were  perpetrated.  At one time the insurgents numbered between six and seven thousand,  all determined men and well armed,  and things looked very serious. But  while General Lee, with three battalions of infantry, a troop of cavalry and a battery of artillery, was  preparing to tako tho field against  them, the obnoxious law was h'urri-  edly repealed, and the insurrection  thereupon came to an end.  The Maroon Insurrection was to  Jamaica, on a small scale, what the  mutiny of the Sepoys was to India.  Tho Maroons were runaway slaves,  who congregated in tho impenetrable  forests on the nortli sido of the island. One day two of them were  caught stealing pigs and flogged,  and this trifling incident sot all thoir  comrades burning, massacring and  pillaging. Tho war that followed  was exceedingly sanguinary, no  quarter being given on cither sido,  and at flrst the advantage was almost wholly on "���������* tho sldo of tho  blacks.  At length", however, the ' expedient  was hit upon of sending to Cuba for  one hundred bloodhounds. The Maroons then craved mercy, which was  accorded them; but. all who would  not promise, to abandon their predatory lifo were banished, first to Halifax', Nova Scotia, and afterwards to  Sierra Leone. The descendants of  th'e remainder are still in peaceful  possession of a few towns built by  themselves  INTHE FORESTS.  Insurrections aro to a great extent a matter of race and tempera-:  ment. When in London the "Mohawks," the "Scourers," and other  similar gangs of well-bred ruffains  made the streets unsafe by night, no  one thought of throwing up barricades in tho Strand, or storming  Buckingham Palace. Yet when, under like circumstances, tho "armag-  nacs" and th'o "Burgundians" interfered with tho comfort ot tho Parisians, the latter fell upon the rival  factions and extirpatod them root  and branch.  Fourtoen thousand of them, we  aro assured on credible authority,  were - slaughtered. in th'roo days���������a  fesson to well-bred "Hooligans," .   if  ever there were ono. And, In addition, there fell in the resultant fighting th'e Constable of France. th'o  POR Chancellor, six bishops, and 3,500  nobles, besides an unnumbered multitude of tho "common people."  Tho Thomite Insurrection, which  broke out in 1S8S, had its origin in  the insane ravings of a Cornish escaped lunatic named John Nich'olls  Thorn. Ho appeared suddenly in  Kent, assumed the name of Sir Richard Courtenay, and gave out that he  was, a being of supernatural origin  who had lately dropped from tho  clouds. Ho promised his deluded followers that thoy should bo wholly  invulnerable to firo or steel, and  that the streets of that "great Gomorrah, London, which have hitherto  beon wetted with wator only, shall  flow with blood for tho rights of tho  poor."  During h'is march upon tho capital  somo private In his ragged battalions set firo to a beanstack. A policeman attempted to arrest tho in-  dondiary,  whereupon Thom  SHOT THE OFFICER DEAD.  The military woro then called out,  and tho Thomites took refuge in a  wood. The soldiers surrounded them  and the officer in command called on  them to surrender. Thorn's answer  was a bullet, which killed tho speak-  himself killed, together with a num-  er; but in the ond the madman was  bor of his followers. Tho rest* of  them dispersed to th'eir homes.  Perhaps, however, the Indian Mutiny affords the most striking instance on record of how easily, under certain conditions, the smouldering embers of discontent may be  fanned all at once into the all-do-  vouring flame of armed rebellion.  \In January, 1857, a man employed  near Delhi in making cartridges for  the new Enfield rifles, asked a Sepoy  of the 2nd Native Infantry for a  draught of water from his drinking-  pot. The answer was an indignant  refusal, for if the pot had but  touched tho lips of the low-co^sto artisan it would havo been polluted  for ever.  Thereupon the workman roplied  with a sneer that tho Sepoy need not  bo so particular, as the now cartridges were greased with bullock fat  and every Sepoy in India would lose  caste in biting off the end.  Tho horrible tale spread like wildfire, variations of it being utilized  according to the religious prejudices  of the listeners. Thus the Hindus  were told that th'o grease was that  of tho sacred cow, while the Moslem  soldiers woro assured that it came  from the unclean swine. Others,  again, asserted that it was a mixture of cow and pig fat.  Tho ultimate result was, of course,  tho v sudden ' uprising of practically  our entire native Indian ormy, and  the slaughter in cold blood ��������� of many,  thousands of*' unhappy white non-  combatants���������men, women, and children.���������Pearson's Weekly.  ��������� ���������   RED LION HAD ESCAPED  AW ENGLISH  COUNTRYSIDE IN  TERROR.;  Ravages    of   a     Mythical   . Beast  Ihat Devoured Sheep and  Children.  A caso of suppoaj- .ysterious disappearance, which has resulted in  tlio inhabitants of scores of villages  and hamlets in Hampshire and Sussex being badly frightened, was  cleared up recently, says tho London  Daily Mail.  At the end of Inst week the rumor  spread tliat a fierce lion had escaped  from a travelling menagerie, and  that Iio was roaming over th'o country seeking whom ho might devour.  A dozen different towns wero mentioned as the place whence the escape took place, and no ono was  suro as to tho proprietorship of tho  menagorio. Theso wero more details.  That a lion had escaped, and was  at large, was implicitly believed in  tho country districts from Winchester to Petersfield. It was just tho  sort of country th'at a pure forest-  bred lion would chooso when once  he had mado up his mind to leave  the hated caravan. Close at hand  were the forest of Bere, Marden  Downs, miles of fir trees, and the  glorious South Downs for a morning  scamper.  FED ON CHILDREN.

Professor Dexter,'of the University  of Illinois, has compiled a curious  volume of statistics relating to "successful" people, and containing 8,-  602 names. It is shown that musicians gain success at the earliest  age; tho scientists at an early ago;  the actor and tho author noxt; tho  inventors gain their place slowly, no  ono below the age of forty boing  included in the book. Women reach  success in all callings, except in  music and on the stage, later than  their malo competitors. It has before, been noted that musical gifts  tend to develop more quickly than  almost any other. As for the business men, it is interesting to learn  that 84 por cent, of the successful  men of business did not enter col-  lego, while 12 per cont. completed it.  Of tho financiers 18 per cent, are col-  lego  graduates.  tractions of the village bar parlor  could draw them out of doors, and  then men travelled in company. For  the past few days no lad in this  part of the world has played truant.  All doubt as to the existence of  the lion was sot at rest when it was  widely reported that a rural postman in the neighborhood of Peters-  field had not only seen the brute, but  actually saw him chase and devour  threo sheep.  At Petersfield it was reported th'at  the lion had eaten three school children at Harting. The good people  of Harting had not heard of the circumstances, but thoy had heard on  good authority that the lion had  been shot at Didling. Tho inhabitants of Didling believed that the  animal had in truth been shot, but  the'shooting had taken place in somo  other village.  TAVERN TALE.  After searching in vain for the  lion, a representative of tho Daily  Mail discovered th'e origin of the rumor.  In a small Hampshire village there  is a public-house known as the Red  Lion. Thc sign of the houso, which  swung from a post, disappeared. '  '.'The lion has escaped" .became the  stock village joke. The talo, minus  tho explanation, spread abroad. And  it is this'painted lion which' has devoured sheep, eaten children, and  scared tho wits out of thousands of  people.   ���������   ABOUT  WOMEN.  -The       Terse      Sayings  "Great-Men:���������  VERYVALUABLETONGUES  POOR    MEN   WHO COULD   GIVE  AWAY GREAT SECRETS.

He himself has not been able to  ascertain the secret of their working  owing to several sets of doors with  secret locks; but should he one day  be tempted to sell h'is premises to  th'e agent of a foreign Power, no  doubt it might bo ascertained with  ordinary skill in espionage.  Has it over occurred to you that  when you have been sitting in a railway carriage, discoursing on some  subject of foreign politics, say a  rumored Anglo-German alliance, or.  some home topic liko a projected  Bill in Parliament, that some quiet,  unassuming-looking workman might  be able to upset in a few words all  your arguments by one ounce of fact,  gathered by him in th'e course of his  daily duties? He might be able to  tell you the exact terms of the rumored alliance, about which lho whole  world is wondering, for how do you  know he is aot a Government printer, part of whoso duties that day  may have been th'e printing of the  treaty itself?  For a few sentences from th'at man  many a newspaper editor would give  many thousand dollars; yet, to tho  credit of such men, it is very seldom that these State secrets are  allowed to leak out.

Look also at the secrets which lie  in tlie keeping of workers at Naval  dockyards. Any one of these men,  and there is an army of them, is in  a position to realize fabulous sums  were he disposed to reveal what he  knew  to a  foreign agent.  Considering a first-class battleship  contains sometimes over five hundred secrets in its construction, it  will be seen what an enormous strain  thero is on the reserve of these  workmen. Any one of those secrets would be worth" enormous sums  to a foreign Government. However,  in spite of temptations often offered  them, cases in which these secrets  are betrayed are very rare indeed, u  Monks aro avowedly the poorost  men.
