'  Arrangements aro about completed  for the dramatic enlerlainmenl tinder  I hc auspices of tlie lnil"pe;idcnt Band  on the evening of Monday, July 3rd.  The play is  an  original   ui-.li drama  entitled  '"More Sinned Ag.iii^t Than  Sinning." Tliere are two pints tunning  through   the.   play.     In   the first, old  Squire Hilton, a landholder prompted  by his land agent Uelhaven (a designing and  unscrupulous villain) is led to  misconstrue the actions nf his only son  and  heir,  Duke,   whom  he denounces  and disowns.     Duke is supposed to go  to   America,   accompanied   by Teddy  O'Neil, (a rale sprig-of  the ould sod)  and  hoch  find their way lo California  wheie   they  remain   for  a  time and  arnass some money.   About the time  of their return  hoiiie plot two begins.  In tbis.-Bolhaven, having induced thu  old   Siiuiie to make  hun sole heir of  his estate and disinherit liis son, he-  eomeS'iUarmed afsome indications of  distrust on I he pai t of the ..quire, and  fe'aring-that   he.   may alter h's  will,  determined to get rid of the1 old  man  and lays'ii plot for abducting hi in  and  shipping o.hiiii   to   Normandy.   This  plan   is,   by   the   aid'of   a  gang   of  smugglers, partly carried out, and tlie  Squiie is drugged and carried  by tlie  villians'to active on   the   seashore,   to  await   the   coming   of  a ��������� smugglers)  -vessel.    On the eve of the abduction.  Belhaven heais of "Duke's return, and  having become pos-esscd of the-will in  his_nvn favor, lays a plan   to   entrap  Dii.C"~by   getHn<������.~an ...t^iv  N ll'ico  to  conce.-jl The,will in Dune's .'uggage.and  then "intimates that" hc<_ias  murdered'  his father on account of his disinheritance:   He, Belhaven, then notifies the  authorities of the Squue's disappearance,   and   in   company   with  Major  Lookout, pretends to inaice   a search  for him.    Duke here .appears on  the  scene, aud coming bv night to his old  home, unwittingly falls into the   trap  prepared for him, aud is arrested and  imprisoned.  Duke is visited in the prison hy  Teddy, who forms a' plan fur his  escape. Belhaven is charged by tbe  Duke with the miuth'r of tho Squire,  upon which Belhaven makes two  attempts upon his life, .mil each is in  turn frustrated. Aided by Teddy, lhe  Duke escapes and search by the Squire  is renewed. The' trail of the smugglers is discovered. Belhaven again  makes anoihei attempt on the life of  Duke nnd is shot by the Major, Teddy  discovers and leleases lhe old 'Squire  and explanations and reconciliation  follows. .  Considerable time is being given (o  careful rehearsing and the entertainment should prove one of the best  ever given in the cily.  Justice Anglin's Decision is That  Dominion   Has no Power to  Deport     Aliens ��������� Judgment  Far-Reaching.  Ottawa, Juno If).���������Tlie decision of  Mr. Justice Anglin in regard to the  deportation of aliens is that the Canadian parliament has no power to deport them to foieign tenitory.  It is understood that thedepailnient  of justice does not feel hound to nccei t  the decision. If tliere is no appeal, as  the judgo says tlien the Dominion  government will (ind a way of getting  a final judgment in the ea������e.  Tt is a question whether Jlr. Justice  Anglin'sTlecision does not declare the.  whole act ultra vires, or meiely the  deportation clause. If it meiely refers  to the deportation clause, then lhc  adoption of a fine, could be used instead of deportation.  The decision also raises ihe question  as to the deportation of iiuuiigranls,  which is going on all the time. Then  there is the depott.ition of Chinese  and Japanese and extradition proceedings, all of which may be all'ectrd  by Mr. Anglin's judgment.  It is so far-reaching in its consequences Lhat it can uot be allowed to  tost where it is.  In accordance witlr his judgment,  Judge Anglin has oideied lhe lelease  of the o01cials of the Pere Marquette  railway, who were arrested for deportation because they were Americans  brought to this country under  contract.  The judge decided "that tho alien  lahor law is ultra vires because it is  without the explicit bestowal of extraterritorial powers, by the soveriegn  parliament, and no colonial legislature  in the opinion of tho judge, may enact  legislation to be enforced beyond the  "boundary of any colony. In his decision the judge says : "If the' constraining forco under lhe attoruey-  geijcal's warrant cease byforc a subject is within the lenitorial'liinits of a  foreign country, I cannot understand  how he can be said to be returned to  that country by virtue of warrant. If  such force continues until the subject  is upon foreign territory, ils extraterritorial exercise cannot be denied.  railed fnr pulling   Ihe   race  track   in'  first-class condi I inn.

Hut ho had reckoned without his  host. His thoughts refused to he  chained to everyday affairs; and after  a brief attempt he finally gave it up,  lighted his pipe, and sat staving into vacancy. Each filmy ring of  smoke-tliat roso framed for liim a  girl's face���������a delicate, oval face, with  finely-chiselled nose and a mouth-  that drooped just faintly ut the corners.  Hc had s-oen it so many timesi���������all-  the last three years it had haunted  him���������and now this other girl with-  her fledging tale had brought hack  old memories with a vividness that  startled him���������made him afraid.  "The end of the story!" He grimaced, and stirred uneasily. Would  it���������would it ever have an end, that  other story? Or would they just  drift on and on for ever, growing  farther apart with every day and  every year? Hc went over it all  again for the thousantleth time. Why  did he do it? Why hadn't he trusted  her? Surely hc might liave known  that/ the rumors which readied him  were lics>���������'base lies, that out of their  own mouth were condemned? IJut,  r.o! "Fools rush in where angels  fear to tread." He did not stay to  think. Ho sent his letter full" of  bitter, biting words, hurrying over  the 7,000 miles of sea that divided  them; and a weak afterwards would  have given his right hand to be ablo  to call it back. Worse still, when  h'e got back to the old country again,  penitent and ashamed, Mollie had  vanished; and all they could tell him  was that her father had died  and that she had gono to London.  The thought made him furious.  London! Since then he had tramr.ed  -mi!es=^pnn^rn;les^oi"-sir5elSr^waiched=  all tho theatres and railway-stations  iu turn, in the hope of seeing hcr;  but what chance was there'.' ft was  hopeless���������impossible. As woll search  for a needle in n haystack as for  ono person in this hive of millions!  -N'o. Ho had lost her. I'or all he  know she might be d������nd. And ho���������.  Ho took a small phial ar.d a hypodermic syriii.ce out of his pocket and  placed     thom    r,n  Un table.     Thoa  frightened by the glare or the noise,  began to rear and kick, ano a moment later started off at a mad gallop. A young girl and a man, crossing from side to side, were in imminent peril. Thc man, hearing the  shout, drew hack; th'c girl liad no  time. Slio glanced at the oncoming  terror, wavered an instant, and was  on the point of falling when a tall  figure flashed forward, a strong arm  shot out, antl slio was 'dragged as by  a miracle into safety. The crowd  forgot to cheer; li was all so sudden.  "My card?" fluttered the old man  to the rescuer. H'o was blanched  with terror. "Yours, if you please.  I can't tliank you now, but tomorrow "  The rest was lost. The two were  bustled into a hansom, and Hartley  Craven, crushing the piece of pasteboard into his pocket without so  much as looking at it, passed on.  Twelve  month's  later  ho was back  in London,    cured as    tho specialist  liad said, ami Lady Silvers-ton, hearing of tho fact, sent him a card   for  her next reception.    She was one of  thoso persons    who priite themselves  on knowing everybody; and Ivor receptions were always crowded.  He wont, and was speedily overwhelmed with- questions.    Whore had  ho been?    What had ho bcon   doing?  Waa he    better?      He replied to one  and all with tho utmost good humor,  and after a while,  drawing aside   a  man whom he knew, put a query on  his own account.    It had beon on his  lips for sonic minutes.  "Who's      this     Miss     Carmarthen  everyone's talking about?" ho asked.'  "Oh,   don't  you know?"  was     the  reply.     "She's Lady Silvert oil's now  lion-girl,  who  wrote  'The Wurblers,'  you know.    Remarkably clover for a  first book.    You must rend it. Quito  an unknown    Quantity    sho was till  Lady S. unearthed hor���������governess, or  something    of     that  sort.     Positive  talent that woman has for discovering budding geniuses."  "Yes;  I believe you."  ���������"Extraordinary!      Sho   seems     to  take 'em all under her wing in turn.  Got hor to introduce you. The  girl's hero somewhere."  "Yes; 1 must. Good-bye!"  Tliey separated, and Craven's  thoughts How back with n rush". So  his swan liad not, like so many  others, turned out to hc only a  duckling! Success had como to her  early. Woll, slie had tho right stutt  in her; he felt sure of it when ho  read that���������tliat other thing, iro  must get a copy of "Tho Warblers"  to-morrow.  The crowded rooms and tho hurly-  burly of voices became wearisome;  tho conservatory offered a welcome  contrast. 'Ho slipped thVough tho  opon door, and walked slowly, grateful for-the cool atmosphere and the  sense of calm. Was it fate? Suddenly���������could it bo���������no���������yes���������impossible!, For an instant his heart seemed to stop beating. Then it went on  again furiously, riotously, with big,  quick jumps lhat sent the blood rushing to his faco, and left him for a  moment standing there helpless and  inert.  All tlio world only held one object  for him al that instant���������a girl in a  soft whito gown who came towards  him down tho row of palms. In two  strides he wus at her side.  "Mollie!"  "Sir.  Craven!"  Quickly his eye searched out a  quiet cornor, and without a word  hc drew hor arm in his and led hcr  to it. When thoy wore s-oalod lie  looked nt hor rapturously.  "Have I  foi'na you  at  last,    little ! contented ivif,..  and  motlvr."        That  girl?"     hu     whispered,   "or     am     I I was  iho  phrase,   I  think?"    Another  dreaming?

ITer  heart leaped at the news; it seemed  like tho direct interposition, of Providence. To go to hiru, to write,  wns impossible; but slio quickly  planned a scheme that should attain  lior heart's desiro and still preserve  hor dignity.

"Mollie, you aro Joan Cnrnmrih'cni!  You!" Ten seconds ticked off an  eternity in his brain; he road the  riddle of years in a Hash.  "Yos, I am Joan Carmarthen," she  snid, slowly.     "Do you doubt it?"  "Doubt it! Oh, that I could!" IIo  wrung liis hands in silent despair.  "I see it all now���������all!

I was confined to my bod in Manila  PhjJlipine Islands, with dengue fever,  writes    a    traveller.     Through     my  the range of my vision, and a moment later I was surprised to seo  or whipped him boating a hasty retroat, tugging  frantically at the bug, much as defeated soldiers tug at a field piece  to prevent it from falling into tho  hands of the enemy.  Suddenly tho ant stopped and  sprang round defiantly in front of  the bug, and tho next moment I saw  a gray spider (tho variety which usually travels with huge bounds liko  a Ilea) approaching warily. It shot  forward a few inches, paused, shot  forward again, and then seemed to  debate tho advisability of attempting to capture tho bug from his fellow marauder.  Tho debate lasted only a moment.  Tho ant's courage ovidently failed  him at the near approach of his big  antagonist, and in a sudden panic of  four he retreated behind tho bug.  Like a flash the spider leaped upon  the choice morsel, and hurrying away  with it to one of the tomato cans  under a leg of tho dresser mounted  to the edge nnd begun leisurely to  devour  his prize.  For a time the ant seemed frantic  with grief and rage. He flashed  aimlessly about looking for the bug,  as if he could not .believe that ho  had  really   been   robbed.  As the fruitless search continued hc  seeded to become more and more  excited, chasing about in big, zigzag  loops as if demented. Then of a sudden ho paused on the very spot  where ho had been robbed, and after  what seemed to be a moment's reflection started" off on the ���������''- '  TRAIL OF THE ROBBER.  Tho spider recognized its enemy  from afar, and dropping the partly  devoured bug into tho water, ran  around to the farther edge of the  tin.   ���������"'  The on't seemed quite to havo regained his self-possession now, and  reaching the can climbed deliberately  up, and raising his head cautiously  over the edge -located the object of  his visit. Quick as thought thc  spider was upon him, and for a moment there was a' confused blur' of  shifting gray and red, as the two  fought desperately on tho jaggod  edge of the can.  Suddenly there wns a tiny splash,  and n moment later I saw the two  struggling in tho water. The spider  made spasmodic efforts to climb up  tho smooth side of the can, but tho  ant, far moro active in the wator,  always dragged it back. In a few  moments tho spider doubled up convulsively and lay, a still gray -ball,  upon   tho surfaco  of  the wator.  Tho ant, with the dogged persistency of his race, fished out of the  water what remained of the green  bug, dropped it over tho side of tbo  can, and descending leisurely, carried it away to his clay house behind the partition.  PEWS SOLD BY AUCTION  SOME  FETCH AS  MUCH AS    A  GOOD HOUSE.  Sittings     in    Some     Fashionable  New York Churches Are  Very Valuable.  Many renders havo probably heard  of Now York's famous Grace Church  at Broadway and Tenth Street,  where there is a choir of "babies"-  ranging in ages from four years up,  wliich church is said to bo erected on  land more valuable even thnn that  whereon our own St. Paul's stands  snys London Tit-Bits.

AU the pows in  Grace Church with few exceptions  are owned by thoso who occupy  them, and when one does find its  way into the market it is eagerly  purchased by rich piirishionors who  are only too anxious to buy their  own  sittings.

Mark.Twain "tells a story ol a fellow-worker who was recently in receipt of a letter from a man who  has regularly made it a practice to  borrow money from him.

Slowly the faint shadow of dawn  crept into the room, but the hand  that hold tho pen moved unceasingly  ncross tlic paper.

Dr. Wettorstrand has treated ovcr  8,800 cases. The jadod, worried man  reclines in an easy chair; ho sees  others doing tho samo; ho listens, as  they do, to a quiet, forcible exposition of tho cure from the doctor,  who afterwards speaks to him individually in a subdued undertone,  "suggesting" the benefit his particular malady will receive.

The  attendance   was   not   as  large as the importance of  the matter  demanded.    The mayor explained the  present lighting plant was inmlurjiinto  to the requirements of the city, and a  risk was run every day of burning out  the armature, whicli  would cost SlOf/J  to replace.     The matter bad been discussed  by the council  and estimates  had been prepared  for what they considered necessary improvements; a bylaw was thei efore  being submitted to  the  ratepayers asking   for   power to  carry   out   these  improvements.    In  reply to a query the mayor stated it  ���������was proposed   to put meters in everywhere so that each person would pay  just for what they used, and he was  satisfied the result  would be a reduction of one-third in meter rates.   Re-  Indians from All Over  Through various Indian agents and  missionaries lcpresentative of neiuTy  all the British Columbia tribes, the  fact that the Dominion fair is lo be  held in New Westminster this year  has become widely advertised among  the Indians of the province and the  presence of thousands of them on the  banks of the Fraser during the great  national exhibition is already- assured.  The fair management has set aside  82,300 for prizes for Indian exhibits  and sports and there promises to be  something doing in lively fashion  imong the redskins every day of the  big fair. The sports will include all  sorts of canoe races on the river, foot  and horse races and tug-of-w.ir on  land in which the females as well as  the males will participate.  Ten Indian bands have already  entered the musical competition.  The braves and their wives and  families from the most remote parts  of the pro*, inco will also come to New  Westminster hy their own primitive  modes of convevance and   to some  of  Passenger Train Crashes Into  Freight at ������uli Speed Killing-  Many ��������� Bodies are Badly  Mangled.  E.U.Ti.Moin;, Jld.. June IS.���������At least  eighteen people are In-lieved to have  been killed, and a score or more injured, in a wreck on the Western  Maryland railroad last night near Pat-  apseo a small station between West-  .uinsler aud Finksbiu-g.  Passenger   train   No. ii, westbound,  wus  running   at a very  high rate of  speed when   it crashed  inlo a double-  headed freight running east. All three  of the engines were reduced to scrap  iron, the express and baggage cars of  the   passengers   train   were   smashed  and a number of freight cars splintered.   The passenger coaches sustained  little injury and almost  without exception tlieir occupants escaped with-,  nothing worse    than   a   bad    shaking up.     The   fatalities   and   injuries  were to the crews of the engines and  to workmen employed by the railroad.  Tt.  is  a  remarkable  coincidence that  these latter should have been at work  repairing   the   damages   caused   by a  recent small freight wreck that occurred at Mount ilope station,   near this  city.    Thej-   were   on   their   way to  tlieir homes in smnll towns  along  the  Western Maryland to spend Sunday.  Not   being  regular   passengers,  they  bad   boarded   tho   baggage   car  and  engine.   When   the   crash   came the  more    fortunate   who   were  on   the  engine jumped or  were   thrown  from  the   train   and    weio    only   slightly  injured.    Tliose iu the   baggage   car  were mangled.  Just before the first relief train  bringing tho injured to the hospitals  left, the wreckage about those began  to burn.  The first relief train to reach here  brought eleven badly injured and one  who died on the trip. Tliose taken  from lhe wreck dead were lasen to  Westminster.  Tho point.\t wliich tho accident occurred is so situated that news of the  wreck was slow in reaching Baltimore. As soon as the news ariived  the railroad company sent relief trains  and as many phy.-icians as could be  gathered together. An express following the freight acted as a lelief from  the olher side and the passengers on  both trains gave evory possible aid to  the victims. Fortunately among the  passengers of the wrecked train were  a few physicians, whose immediate  .services were invaluable.  on learning that be was already the j  husband of several women, rcquestct'  the British consular authorities hero  to send her back to Kngland.  The acting consul, Mr. Mitchell,  called the "Moor to his oflice and told  him that he must send the girl homo  and pay the necessary expenses. On  the man refusing to do so, Mr. Mitchell threatened to hand him over to  the Moorish authorities.  Thereupon tho Moor suddenly drew  a revolver on tlio acting consul, but.  was prevented from liring by Mr.  Morillo, the consular elerk who pluck-  ily seized him. A fierce stiugglet  ensued in the consul's ollice, and Mr  .Morillo was assaulted with tho butt of  the revolver. The Moor finally escaped and took refuge in Sanctuary.  Subsequently tho Moor was arrested  and taken to the castle. The girl's  parents claim hor custody, asserting  that the marriage was a runaway one.  It has been ascertained lhat tho  ceremony took place in the Liverpool  mosque, the certificate being signed  "Quilliain."  Tho marriage was performed according to - the Mohammedan ceremony,  and the register was signed by a  sheik. The girl, who was only 17  years of age, is alleged to have been  terrorized by the Moor.

(',., June ii).  ���������According to information received  by Manager Keary preparations are  now going on in various parts of  Australia for a big exhibit of that  country's resources to be made at tho  Dominion fair which opens here on  .September 27. B. Jl. Rons, who is  Canadian commercial agent for Victoria. 'Tasmania and south and western  Australia, took thn matter up some  time ago with tbo various chambers of  commerce and has worked the proposition into an undertaking which hns  been entered into with general enthu  garding the flume it had been allowed   si;is'"- rhti People of Australia realize,  to run into very bad shape. Considerable repairing had been made to  it last year, but it was leaking so  Kidly the Council wanted to make a  ^permanent job of it. They pioposed  to replace the piece of flume washed  out by a barrel flume, and every precaution was being taken in the city's  interest. Replying to Mr. O'Brien  the mayor said the council proposed  to repair thc damage to the flume by  Air. Boss says, that the holding of the  Dominion fair in New Westminster  opens to them n great opportunity to  develop trade with British Columbia  and they will improve it by making an  elaborate display of sucli of their products as are marketable in this part of  the empire.

The  terrific explosion hurled them nil some  distance. Young Mitchell received  tho full force of tho explosion and was  struck unconscious. His face nnd body  were terribly lacerated and burned.  He died three hours later, having inhaled the flames which enveloped the  boys when fhe explosion occurred.  Young Twining was also terribly  burned and a portion of his chin was  blown oir. Tie was removed to the  hospital and his life is in danger. The  other two are painfully injured.  The explosion was so terrific that  the rock and earth wero btiiTcd all  around the boys. The agonizing cries  brought aid quickly and a corps of  doctors were soon on the scene.  The Status of  Women.  New York, June 30.���������Cardinal Gibbous delivered an address to the graduates of Mount St. Agnes at the  commencement exeicises today, says  a Baltimore special to the Sun. In  his address he said :  "Woman today is the peer of her  husband, not the slave of bis caprice  and passion.

A Moorish acrobat from the Sits  district .somo limcuigo married a Alan-  chester girl aged 17 and brought her  here to his harem  A Crystal City Farmer Makes  a Horrifying Discovery���������All  Were White Men's Bones-  Historic  Significance.  When John Fallis, a farmer living  10 miles south of Crystal city, Manitoba, w.'is digging a cellar la������t Friday,  ho happened upon a most gruesome  find. The spade of one of his workmen suddenly unearthed, wnat appeared to be a round piece of limestone  but which, upon examination, proved  Lo be a human skull. At firsL it was  thought-rrr be fronr the loneiy^grave-  of an Indian, but, upon recommencing  the excavation, other skulls were met  with. By evening -lo had been taken  from the ground/and two complete  skeletons also discovered.  Considerably excited by his mysterious discovery, Mr. Fallis loaded the  relics into a wagon, and took them to  Crystal city, where thoy elicited a  great deal of curiosity. Doctors, upon  examination, pronounced the bones to  be those of white men. The good  state of preservation of the skulls  showed them to have been in the  ground a comparatively short time.  Afuch speculation has been indulged  in by the inhabitantsof the southern  Manitoban town regarding the possible  reason for the location of these remains. The fact ihat they were found  so close together, , seems to indicate  that they were not buried thore, under ordinary circumstances. The general consensus of opinion sot-inU lo be  that the spot has been the scene of  some battle with the Indians, nnd that  the victiinsof the conflict were thrown  into it common pit in the haste of  flight.  the  fflooa   Trnlmi nt  tlm 11 utile os tl.������  ~ I.IUto Ills Horn.  If a etory that comes out of the west  is true, lt la likely that there will bo  Given to the world some  interesting  picture stories of Custer's last fight,  drawn by some of the Sioux who, In  .uai^of  the centennial  year,  killed  Ch-S.'Yellow Hair and every man in  bis five pet troops, on thq Littlo Big  Horn,  ln Montana.    Though  Indiana  lie like fifn, theirs is the only account  of the extinction of Custer's personal {*$  command on that hot Sunday which  ever can bo given.    Tho more eager  tho white men have seemed to get tho  truth of tie fight from the Sioux, tha  more given to romancing the Indiana  have become. Perhaps it's only human  nature for tho sole witnesses to male  the most of their chance.  "Frank   Glrard   was   one   of   Reno's  ccouta on that day;   He, another scout  tnd two soldiers escaped in the stampede and retreat of. Reno and hid ia  a hollow, emerging on tho following  night and joining Reno.    Girard  recently has been up at the Pine Tree  'Agency trying to get the Sioux to tell  him the story of the fight In detail.  Incidentally he saw some pictures (A  the battle which had been drawn hy r  young buck with the aid of the suggestions furnished by his elders wh.  aotually were there.    It ls said  that  thess pictures number sixty, and ara  drawn in water color on the leaves of  an old agency book, and illustrate tha  conflict from start to finish.   Glrard U  the first man, not an Indian, it ls said,  that ever saw these pictures, and no  white  man   ever  could   havo   bought  them.   But Girard speaks their tongue  fluently, as for nearly a score of yean  he vas a scout in their country, and  now that peace reigns tbey regard Mm  es a great and good friend.    So they  gave A'm the book, and accori/lng to  the story he is going to have lt pub'  llshed some day, with an account o������  the battla, ln which the Sioux version  will be'told.   It certainly will be a^  Interesting publication.  i-AALtii,   I.  a-������������������ it'���������! -  V.-.. .':��������������� .'.i...  a! v..  will  -?1  c:i   iu-.nJ,   oi  li.e[���������!. i:i  s'.vA  ic.  a  i*--_ f "*> "iAJi  X  At Our Yards we will ata  -171 rrr 1--T.P'i   ? r"KT__ri  ..rji    tire     FTP  i/i'icd   luij;*: Gr;iin, Finishings  Hidings   cf   every   description  ___?__? _*!���������*-_:j?. ^���������t*yi^TS  m> A /f*.cr_.'"V?wvca Q?9  &w������0 j.

equally numerous, if not more so, nro
thoso of victories spoiled by the fair
box and of battles lost owing to feminine machinations,
There nre many, snys Tit-Cits, who
assert that tho falluro of the .nmfsor.
raid nt tho outset was hroufchi about
by women. President Kruscr is ln tho
. liahlt of omploj-ins countless detectives, both male and female, In the.
Transvaal as well as abroach The

their propensities for extracting confidences, aro alleged to have wrtms
from some of the raiders long before
the raid Itself was entered upon tho
fact that lt was - forthconiinj. The
consequence wis that when it came
about Cronje was fully prepared.
France can .:- point to ..a number of.
cases in which victories connected
with the Republic have been spoiled
by women, and the whole courso bf
events changed in consequence. For
example, the fall of General Boiilan'gcr
,was brought about by a member of ths
fair sex. But for the Yieomtesac de

Somewhat similar is the old   world
case of Hannibal, whose wife was tho
unintentional cause of his fall and the
failure of his once. successful armies.
. ffhe great General was so foolish as to

Jake seated himself on the table  ati'i .-wting his leg, eyeing her wilh  malicious  triumph.  "It's���������it's n Hol". camo from her  white lips.  Ho laughed and pointed liis pipo  at her.  "Xo, it's lho truth, tho solemn,  beau-ti-ful truth," he retorted.  "Why, I can see it in your face! It  struck on me like a flash of lightning- just about two minutes ago!  What! you'll turn ine out of doors,  will you I" ho mado a movetnont as  if he were going to approach her.  "She'll stop the allowance, will  sho!" and he laughed with savago  derision and exultation.  There was silence for a momont,  broken only by the short, angry  puffing of his pipe, and tho hard  painful breathing of tho woman.  Then with a oath, and a  vicious kick at tho chair ho exclaimed:  "And to tliink that I should havo  been roughing it all this time, living  like a dog���������yes, liko a dog!���������whon I  might have been rolling in money!  It's���������it's enough to make a man  knock his head off! But I never guessed it. I'm clever, I know, but I novor  even g;uessed it! I was u fool! But  ���������" with fierce contempt���������"not half  such a fool as you, for you knew tho  game, and yet you wont on living in  this pokey hole on ten or twelve  shillings a week, I daro say!

He  got  up  and   strodo  to and   fro  in a  state  of suppressed  excitement,  then   stopped  in  front  of  hor.  "But I'll chango all that, my  dear. It's my turn now, and I  meun to havo a good innings. No  pokey cottage for me, my dear; and  something more than ten or twelve  shillings a week I Lord! when I think  Ot it"���������he burst out laughing���������"it  makes me dry!" and ho wiped his  hand  across his mouth.  "Hero! Get me somo money! Sharp  d'ye hear? As much as you'vo got;  the more the better. Come, gather  those scattered brains of yours, my  dear. I'm going to manage this  business from this time forward. A  pokey, miserable hovel! D'ye hear?  Some coin, quick! Don't shako your  head. I know you of old! You've  got   a    slocking   somewhere,  I'll     bo!  ���������������������������'How . quickly the morning has  gone!" said Irene. "You won't bo  long. Midge dear, and, oh!" sho  added "how would it bo for you to  givo madam hcr bracelet? That is  rather a happy idea, for sho can  scarcely scold yon about tho colt at  tho moment you are restoring her  valuable property!" and sho laughed.  Madgo would have liked to liavo  declined, but sho said nothing, and  took tho bracelet.  As sho prepared herself for lunch!  sho thought of Uoyce, and tho troubled look an his face, ami her heart  bent fust us sho hoard him enter  the next room. She opened the door.  He had  thrown himself into a   chair  was  in  his race.   A  clean  slmvo and and was looking down at lis    boots  a crop will do wonders at all times, 11������ a thoughtful, preoccupied  fashion,  and      they   had    worked a    striking  b������t    nt tho    sight j of^ her; his faco  transformation in  Undo Jako  It was not so diflleult now to imagine him to have been in his youth  a good-looking man of the llorid  theatrical kind; indeed, as ho stood  in tho middle of the room, holding  himself as upright ns he could���������for he  had paid a visit to the public-house  as well as the barber's and ready-  made clothier's���������there was a distinct  flavor of tho strolling player about  him  "How's that for high?" ho demanded, and in a tone Unit was somehow different to that of a couplo of  hours previous. "Havo a look at  mo all round, old woman 1 It's tho  Gentleman Stroller como to life  again, eh? Ah, it will only show  what tip-top clothes will do for a  man. And I mean to wear tip-top  uns for the rest of my days, my  dear.' And so shall you! I'd have  bought you a silk dress if the money  had held out; but it didn't, worse  luck!"-  Ho drew a bottle of gin from his  pocket, and with elegant dexterity  drew   tho cork with his teeth.  "Have a drop, Martha? It will do  you good. No? ��������� All the moro for  mo then!    And  now  for  business."  Ho sat himself on tho tablo in  front  of  tho fire  with  tho  bottlo     in  smiled  cleared,   and  he  nodded  and  lovingly.  "Hnllo, Madge," ho said, "nearly  ready? I'm rather lato. but the  tailor kept mo; would talk about  tho flrst pair of riding breeches ho  mado me,  poor old chap!"  Sho went up to him and put hor  arms around his neck with a sweet  timidity which would havo melted  an anchorite.  "You aro not angry with me,  Royco?"  she whispered.  "Angry with you, my darling!" ho  echoed, drawing her down to him  and kissing ber. "Why should I bo  angry?"  "Because of my riding tho colt,"  she said in a low voice. "I .saw  that you know; that tho countess  had told you.''  "Yes, my mother told nre," ho  said reluctantly. "It was rather  unfortunate that she should see you;  but it doesn't matter���������I mean, thero  was nothing  to  bo ashamed  of,     to  make     a  fuss  about.    Only "     he  hesitated, then laughed, but shortly,  as if tho subject were unpleasant,  "only, you seo, madam hasn't mot  with a woman who can rido as well  und as easily as you, Madge, and   But there, don't Jet thc matter troublo   you   for     a  moment.      And  the  "She Is my guardian angel," she  said to Itoyco in a low voice.  Tho meal, a far less stately ono  than dinner, proceeded, the countess  scarcely opening her lips, antl Madge  being almost as silent. Presently  Seymour said:  "I havo been telling madam that  wo ought to givo a danco in honor  of tho bride," and bo smiled at  Madge.  Royco looked up quickly.      lie understood  nt  once that  Seymour was  "i planning   some    fresh     mortification  for Madge.  "Thore is no need for anything ot  tho  kind,"  he  snid.  "I don't agree with you, my dear  Uoyce," said Seymour. "It will bo  nn excellent wny of introducing  Madgo to our friends and neighbors;  and madam agrees with me, do you  not?"  "Itoyco can  do as he pleases."-  Itoyco bit bis lip, but was too  proud to offer anj' further opposition.  "Very woll," ho said; "would you  liko  it,  Madgo?"  "I?"  "Certainly," put in Seymour.

Jake walked up and down impatiently, kicking the furniture about,  and in a few minutes she came in  again  with a small box in her hand.  Ue snatched it from her, knocked  off thc lid against tlie table, and  pourec" out the contents.  "Is ihat all?" hc growled. "Never  mind!" There's more, plenty more,  heaps more, where it came from,  isn't there, my dear?" ho added, as  he_flung the empty box in the fire.  "Sow then, I'm going into the  town.    -���������  noticed but that Seymour"���������his faco  darkened "happened to sec you and  ho indulged in some of his pleasant  sarcasms, and, so to speak, worked  my mother into ono of hcr fits of  passion."  Madg-o  sighed.  "And you had to bear' it all  Itoyco!" she murmured; "and you  will have to bear all the blame for  my misdeeds and mistakes, all  through! Ah!" and sho turned away  from him;  but he still held her.  "Don't  talk liko that. Madge!"    he  said,   flushing.    "You   aro   not  going  to   make     any    mistakes  or  commit  nny 'misdeeds.

Wo havo hero a herd of 175 cows  nnd tho following method of handling them when fresh or dry has  proven to bo a satisfactory ono.  First, all tho cows aro delio'mod;  then in a*short timo they are as  pcaceablo - as so many sheep.  If the weather isi not stormy thoy  aro allowed to go out a part of  each day during the winter, and all  of the time during tho warm weather,  except for feeding and milking.  They are numbare'd and, no matter liow many thero aro in the barn,  each cow soon learns her own stall  and goes directly to it when allowed  to come in.  Wo practice tho soiling system, and  each cow gets her feed in her own  stall tins year around, with tlio ex-  csplion of ten days or two weeks  whflo she is calving. During this  timo she docs not miss being away  from the herd, as her attention ��������� is  taken up with Her calf; neither does  she forget- which* is her stall when  sho goes back on her line.  32ach" cow's milk is weighed onco  per month and th'o weight of the  milk with the cow's record kept on  a board   in  front  of  her  stall.  All feeding is done according to  the amount, of milk the cow givos,'  and when one goes, dry slie i.s put on  ix very small grain ration, aud is  usually fed a cheaper grade of roughage, or if roughage is vcry good slie  gets no grain at nil. -  in th'o uncooked ensilnge wns 71.6  pe. cent., and in tho cooked H9.45  por cent, or but littlo over half.  Cooking releases the sugar products  contained in the foods, and this fact  being generally known^ lias led many  to beliovo that tliis would hasten  the fattening' process, but tlie great  decrease in tlio digestibility prevems  this result.  IMPROVING TITLO DAIRY HERD.  Tho constant aim of thc dairyman  sliould be to grarlo up his herd to a  high standard of productiveness. Nothing but. n pure bred sire should bo  usod,     and     when  commencing     the  farmer, should  choose  ono  particular  breed,  and then stick to it.    Changing from   one  breed   to  another  was  tho cause of many a failure.   Calves  intended for the dairy herd sliould be  selected  from   dams   with a  good record  as  milk -producers.     The    dam  should   bo  of good  dairy .formation,  of-strong   institution,   and  liave ... a  good   udder,   ami     largo,   well-formed  teats'.     Having selected th'o calf,  the  nciYt   point   was   the   rearing.     If     a  calf  was  not  properly attended     to  during  lho  early  period  of  its existence, it was frequently stunted in its  growth, and the chances of it.becoming a profitable dairy cow materially lessened.    The following is a good  food for calves during tlie first year:  A   porridge   made   from,  meal   mixed  in  the    following proportions:     100  lbs.  ground oil cako,   25 lbs.   ground  flaxseed  and  50  lb.   low-grade   Hour.  Mako th'c por-idgo by mixing tho ingredients  together  Willi  warm  water  to  about  the  consistency  of    cream.  Owing  to  (lin  strength   of  thc    food,  tlie  calves  should   not   lie  fed    much  of it at first, but as they-become accustomed  to  it,  feed  a larger quantity if necessary.  thought a moment.

It is nol many months sinco several  of theso gnllant old vessuls wero  sold by auction nt Chatham ns so  much firewood���������ships that were onco  tho pride and boast of our Navy.  There was the Forte, which sailed  the seas long befo'ro our oldest admiral of to-day was cradled; also  the Belle Isle, which, after being- a  target for shells innumerable in mimic warfare, was sent to lho bottom,  of Portsmouth-Harbor by a torpedo,  and was .floated ngnin, only to end  her days under the auctioneer's  hammer. But thu quecnliest of all  these veterans was tho Duko of Wellington, which with tho Hannibal is  now being- broken up into Urowood  on the Thames,  near Charlton.  Half a century ago there was no  fairer ship on all t'ho scac than this  Duko of Wellington, tho timbers of  which are destined to supply logs  for our next winter's fires. She was  built at Pembroke and launched fifty-  two years ngo on the very day tliat  Wellington died. She was a ship  to marvel at in hor^youth, wilh her  6,071 tons and  "HER GKIM TIERS OF.

It was told at tlio  time of he'r launching that her mainmast had cost no less than-?2,500,  her foremast SI ,873, and hor mizzon  mast $i>00; and Unit to build hor  sovunty-six acres of forest liad keen  stripped of-3,000 oaks, each treo a  good  two  centuries  old.  So stately and impressive was this  fino sliip^that slio was placed in tho''"  procession that sailed so proudly  past Queen Victoria in tho Spithead  Hoviow of lSoll; and in tho days of  tho Crimea she was chobuu lo curry  Admiral   Napier's Hag.  And this is tho end of lier proud  career. Well might. Ituslcm exclaim  as ho looked at Turner's picture of  another equally gallant vessel, the .������  "Fighting Temerairn," being towed  to tlio ship-breaker's yard at 1-iotli-  orhithe, "Of all pictures not involving lium.-m pain, this is the most, pathetic that was ever palmed." Tho  grand old Tcmeraire hatl been sold  for $27,050���������less, it is said; th'an, Iho  copper in her hud cost, and barely  a twentieth of what had been spent  on  her  1HJILDTNG A1.D EQUII'I.BNT.  Ono can scarcely realize in these  days of iron-clads and steam with  what pride these stately wooden  ships of several generations ago woro  regnrdt-n. II is true that a line-of-  bul.tlo ship in Nelson's days, magnificent vessel though she wns, with  more than a. hundred guns aboard,  cost barely a tenth of tho price of a  fui ly-Cij uie pud, first-class battleship  of our day; but she carried in hcr  timbers tho growth of a hundred  years ov more of good British  oak.  Nothing less than fifty acres of  forest .would sufply the necessary  timber to build her. and' a couple of  hundred shipwrights wore kept hard  at work for twelve months beforo  she was ready for launching. Then,  too, with her lowering bulk, her livo  ducks, her iron teelh showing at a  hundred portholes, her lofty masts  and enormous spread of smils," slio  was a picture of combined power  and grace sucli as no man-of-war of  to-day conveys.  It is curious to note how, as long  as a century ago, when thpro'was no  ship   of    ,'i,000  tons  atloat,    it  wns  thought  that the limit of sizo     had  certainly    been     reached.     "Timber,  tliu growth  of Nature,"  wrote';    ono  expert in  1S00,  "as much as     man,  cannot be made to grow larger, and    -  tho     very     element     (in  harbors  at)   . *  Icast^|i^|iij^J^^^rtrs_t.o^n������v.igate=^  have  only certain  depth's that  ..
