The famous Fish River camp is

plant in operation at the Beatiice.
"The compressor plant for tho Silver

- Halcyon Hot Springs
Harry Mcintosh, the genial piopri-
ecor of the Hoffman House, Rossland,
has taken a four veins' Ipose of Halcyon Hot Spnngs San it at in in, the
most beautifully situated health rcsoit
in Biitish Columbia. It goes without
saying that under the management of
Mp1_McIntoshJ.Httlcyoii will soonjie^
come known far and wide as the most
popular place of its kind in the west.
Situated on the east side of Airow
lakes, the Halcyon Hot Spiings aie
on ucd by a company organized several yeais ago by ex-Governor C. H.
Mackintosh. The healing piopei tics
of these wateisare nothing shoit of
marvellous. Foi lheumtttisiii and
numerous olhei pliysicnlailuients they
are piobably unexcelled on tbe North
Ameiican continent, and they beat
favoiable con.p.uison with the best
medicinal wateis of Germany and
Austiia. Anal} sis of the How of the
springs has levelled the interesting
fact that it contains a higher percentage of lithia than any other natural
waters the woi Id over. This is con
sideted sufficiently important by the
medical fraternity to ieoommend them
most highly foi thecuic of afflictions
aiising from the existence of a superabundance of in,ic acid in the system.
At an expense of considerably over
��100.000 the company has improved
the springs .<nd provided excellent
accommodation. The waters are piped
from the point wheie they iise on the
mountain side to thc hotel and sanitarium, which is about a quirter of a
mile distant. The hotel has excellent
accommodation for a large number of
guests, and the baths, plunge, cooling
and other rooms are fitted up in the
most approved fashion and with every
necessary convenience. The natural
surroundings of the place possess a
distinct and truly wonderful chaim.

This was unsuccessful, and Piemier
Delyannis died at 7:30 o'clock.

Awakening  fc.T.^-O*  .j.������..;.'o..j������'������  prior   to  One evening. just prior to tea.  Joseph Growler, Esquire, sut poring  over the financial columns of his  evening pnpvr. Tliere was a smilo "'  grim ta'.isfaction on his thin, hard  f.tce, fur only that morning ho had  dealt the dea'lh-blow to nn industrial  trm that hnd long been n. source of  annoynnco to the great syndicate of  which ho wns virtual heud. Besides,  tho doing of it had brought a comfortable feelinj; of gratified personal  revenge���������or rather the squaring of a  lung-standing account. These two  things, and another, made Mr.  Growler feci  almost  pay.  Suddenly he cast the sheet from  him with a contemptuous gesture.  "Pshaw! lot 'cm talk!" he sneered.  '���������They're all dying to call mu 'scoundrel.'' 1 Know they are: and all the  while they're pawning their very  coats to buy Growler stock. I am  on the boom, sirs; but what of that?  I snap my fingers at 'em all. I've  lived to bring Lc-esome und Co. to  thc wall, and I feel that the yearn  so spent hnvo'not been wasted���������by  no means; quite the reverse, indeed.  I've had enough of finance now,  though; and I shall henceforth devote  myself to the tenderer things of life.  Aha' People wonder why I, who am  richer than even they dream of, nm  content to inhabit J.his couple ot  poor apartments, liut then they  don't know iny dear little-Miss Bale  ���������my darling Agatha!"  'A softer light came into his keen  eyes. His hand straj'ed to his vest  pocket, from which he produced a  small .morocco-bound case. This he  surveyed with a pleased chuckle, thou  he pressed o. spring, and the Hashing  of many tinted fires made liim wink.  "Fifty pounds' worth. Well, it certainly is showy; but I wonder now  whetlier I ought to have made it a  hundred? Hut it's too lute now." Tlo  closed the case with a snap, replaced  it in his pocket, and gave a drag at  the bell-pull. Then, he resumed his  musing.  "They don't know���������hov/ can they?  ���������thnt I'm going to marry her; and  neither does she, the innocent little  darling. I shall tell her so after tea,  and"���������he chuckled audibly���������"how she  will stare, to bo' sure, lie, be! But  the deuce! What's become of that  girl?   This delay is monstrous!"  He gave another and tiercer pull at  the cord. The jingle of thc bell camo  to his ears from the kitchen; then,  nfter an aggravating pause; he heard  the maid .humming' her cheerful way  along the passage.  "Did" you ring, sir?" she inquired,  innocently, as she opened the door.  "Tea!" said Mr; Growler, coldly;  "anu when'that's set I'll havo something to say to you.'  "Indeed," said Mary Ann. "Sow  that's real interesting. I've been  setting your meals- for more'n a year  and it's the first time "  "Tea!" thundered Mr. Growler,  with a menacing flash.  The girl blanched, and fled headlong. But when sho reappeared'with  the tea-things there wns a flush on  her face and a combative look in  her eyes, which told that her courage  had returned.  With much deliberation she; proceeded to arrange the table, and  when everything had been accomplished to her satisfaction sho looked at  Mr. Growler with a saucy upturning  of her nose. "Now," she said, acidly, "I'm ready to listen, and for  heaven's sake trv to bo pcrlite to a  lady."  iir. Growler's glanco became a  glare, and his face slowly crimsoned.  Such audacity was unheard of. "Girl,  you're mad! stark, staring mad!" he  gasped.  Ann dropped a mocking  'It's very kind of you to  it, I'm sure; but that's  here nor there. Anyhow,"  meaningly, "I ain't a cold-'earted  wretch as goes about the world . a-  r'obbih' the widow and horphan liKo  some folks I know as ought to bo  'ashamed-, of   emselvcs."  Mr. .

"Do it; oh. yes, do it," she cried,  recklessly. "I know you're a brute,  nnd worse than that if all were  known, 1 do believe. Do it! I'd go  cheerfully to hospital with a broken I  'cai! if I knew you'd be cooling your  heels  in prison  over it." I  Mr. Growler replaced the cup on'  the table. "Woman." ho snid. harshly, "you are a disgrace to your sex.  I shall insist that Miss Dale dismiss  you from her service at once. Meanwhile, I demand to know the meaning of this extraordinary outburst."  ' Hextraordinary, you" call it?"  panted thc maid, hotly. "I say it's  tx wonder I don't take my ten fingers  to you. You've as good as turned  me out of a situation; ond more'n  that, you've gono like a decouring  crocodile and stung tho 'and of an  angel in disguise, if over there was  one���������I mean  my poor missis,  and no  other.

' '-'It'll   have it>   irce'.ic   solid before  it's ns cold as your 'cart, anyhow,"  snorted Mary Aim.

Thoro; I said I'd do  it, and I have." And with a whisk  of her skirls and defiant scorn in her  oyes Mury Ann sailed from the room.  Tho outbreak had a disturbing effect on Mr. Growler's usually healthy,  appetite. As ho toyed with his tea  hu felt, himself becoming tx prey to  vague alarms. An awful something  hnd happened to somebody, hut who?  His brain refused lo steady itself.  For tho    moment the angry    maid's  terrupted Miss Dale, in deep distress.  Thou oho burst forth passionately :  "Why do you insult mc like that?  Until to-day I thought you an honorable man, but what am I to thiuk  now?"  "What, indeed?" ochocd tlio bewildered suitor,  feebly.  "My own poor savings I caro nothing for, although they wero a ward  between mc and poverty.

Tho grim irony of thn business had blighted his faculties for  tho   moment     as     effectually as     if  torrent     of     eloquence     had      quite! lightning   had   struck  him.      Slowly  qainped hi.s reasoning powers. It  was clear, though, that she had lost  her place, and that she put tho  hlamu of it on him. How absurd! Hu  never interfered in thc management  of the household, liut why had tho  girl lost her plnce? Ah! sho mentioned live hundred pounds. Was it  possible she mount that Miss Dale  had lost that sum? And someone was  going to Australia. Could she have  been referring to Miss Dale again?  Ruined! Going abroad! Mv. Growler  sprang impetuously to his feet. "I  don't believe it; and, what's moro,  1 sha'n't have it," ho cried. "I  shall toll her so at oni*!."  But the next instant he dropped  back limply into his chair. It had  occurred to him that he was power-J  less, as yet, to prevent Miss Dale  going anywhere she chose. Bhe was  her own mistress, while ho was only  there on sufferance, ns it were. He  had trampled rough-shot! over hundreds of hapless mortals in his gold-  coining career, thinking naught of  tlio ruin aJid misery that strewed his  track. Ho had been remoi'Geless as a  sledge-hammer in all his dealings  with his fellows, taking his due to  tho uttermost farthing, accepted ad-  vei'so blows with stoical fortitude.  Kow he knew that lovo, not gold,  wa.s life, and he shook ns with ague!  at tho bare possibility of losing Miss  Dale. ' But ho would���������ho must���������soo  her at onco. Again he gave dn insistent jerk to the boll-cord.  It seemed tin age ere Mary Ann appeared, and when she beheld the condition of the tea-table' she favored  Mr. Growler with a pleased nod.  "Well,  sir,"  sho said,   brightly.  Mr. Growler repressed his agitation  by a powerful effort.  "Will you please give my compliments to your mhstresfi, and ask her  to grant mo un interview, now?" he  said.  "Missis  is out and won't ho homo  for nn  hour,"  replied tl^y.'������|J---i'J}������t  to tie suie I'll tell hur.   I i^      " ���������.is  how you'd come to sco' whr*  ster '.you've  been.

He took one step towards thc door, paused, and turned.  "As Heaven is my judge I didn't  know you wero interested in Lec-  somo," ho snid,  hoarsely.  "And knowing, would you havo  cared? It is doubtful," said Miss  Dule, bitterly.  "You wrong mo; indeed you do,"  cried Growler. "If I'd known I'd  have cut my right hand olT rather  thnn havo dono what I have. But  evory penny of it will be returned at  onA3. See, I shall givo you my  cheque for it now." }Ie drew out  his cheque-book as ho spoke, but Bhe  slopped him imperiously.  "I sha'n't take it, sir," sho said.  "My little fortune is gone, and  there's an end to it. I suppose I  shall manage to live without it. But  my heart is sore for my friends, tho  Lcesomes, fallen from comfort to  penury at one  dire stroke!   Go!"  Mr. Growler staggered rather than  walked from tho room, looking ton  years older in one short minute; then  Miss Dnlo collapsed into a chair and  Wept. If she was sorry for the Leo-  somes, she was, strangely enough,  almost more sorry for Growler. No  sooner hnd he gone than her gentle  heart began upbraiding her for her  harshness. Perhaps hc had never  thought of the harm, ho was doing.  Besides, ho lovod her, and" no woman  is insensible to a compljmcnt of that  sort.  low mc to (Sail you that this once���������  and now I'm content.

Of all living women surely ex-  Empross Eugenic has bad tho most  remarkable part to pluy in tho history of natioais, and sho still carries  vivid recollcctians of the days of  tho Franco-Prussian War, grim and  ghastly 1870-1, whon the bolls of  Paris, ceased ringing, and defeat  faced a nation.  She was sojourning at. St. Cloud  at tho time, and,'hurrying back, to  Paris, tho found .tho population in a  mood bordering on frenzy. Their  faith in thc Government was shaken,  their pride in tho army was gono,  and everywhere could be hoard: bitter  curses against tho folly,of the absent Emperor- and his generals.  "At once sho addressed herself to  tho task of arousing a spirit of loyalty to tho Government. She put  forth a proclamation over hor signature, calling upon Frenchmen not to  bo downcast over their reverses.  "Let thero now be but oho party  among us," sho declared, "that of  France. Let us liavo but one standard,  that--of; your honor."  Night and; day sho feverishly exhorted tho courage of tho,.statesmen  around her.  At length it became possiblo for  hor to sleep only when slio resorted  to drugs. Hcr distracted brain was  filled wifh martial thoughts; she  wanted to mount horse, take command in person of tho troops at  Paris, and appeal to the people, to  rally around hor. But all in vain;  oven she realisod that the end wns  near at last. Accordingly, she gathered together her private papers,  hcr art-treasures, and somo of V her  jewels, and sent thom out of tho  country, and found.an exile's homo  at" Chislehurst, near Londoh, where  she was afterwards joined by Louis  Nnpoicon.  ��������� In tho quarter of a-century ��������� sinco  the'.death'!"of :tho Prince Imperial -the  llio of ox-Empress Eugenic has .'[been  for ithe most pact ;strictly secluded.

Softly down' sho  placed the tray, gave a confused tap,  nnd was scuttling off on tiptoe.  "Miss Parkins���������Mattie!" he had  stumbled across from his table, almost as if ho had heard tho little  ���������choke out there. Beforo she knew  it the door was flung open. - "Miss  Parkins!"

Thoro  could bo no other reason why sho  suddenly closed her lips tight  against a rush of sobs.  "Dcn't, Matlie!"

All that intervening day Steve Parkins broodnd upon  the mystery and watched his chance  to discover something thot warranted derisive action. It did not come  till lale in the evenlng, whon Kattie  mado hor hasty toilet and scurried  out to do tho "shopping." Stevo  had a vaguely brilliant plan of his  own. With many a queer grimace of  p.'fln ho hobbled .out into the "garden" at tho rear and whistled cautiously to attract tho man next door  a house decorator by trade.

It mi  a giddy height, and the man- at the  foot looked unpleasantly small and  indistinct; but Stevo was muttering:-  "Now or never! Now or never���������to  save that gel!"  Sotting his teeth ho tore away  some sooty creeper-stems that overhung the coping, held his breath, aud  wa.s peering in.  Thero was a blind, but it liad never beon encouraged to act as ono.  Steve could seo all he deaircd; at  least, ho could see the door, and the  unconscious figure bent over that  lamp-lit table in the corner. Doing  what? Writing somo book���������here?

','You schemin' vagabend, I'll put  you away!" Stove said to himself.  "Honest men don't walk about their  room all day and do their work Jn  the nights; that jabber ahout wanting silenco - and writing bettor at  night waa. sbLmuch .'rpej'per being  thrown in people's eyes.

Will I? Out you go, my lord; a bit  o' day'lght'Il do you a world 6'  good!"  And here, with dramatic suddenness, the "queerest thing happened.  Steve hail heard the muffled bang of  tlie postman's knock far below. It  recalled him to n sense of the situation. Ifo shot sl husky whisper of  warning down the ladder, took a last  vindictive glance, and drew in his  breath. That figure ln there had  swayed up and reached tho door in  ono leap, it seemed. Now it was  open, and there stood Ifattie, holding out a letter. She looked quito  calm; there was oven a faint smile,  as of secret ���������sympath'y.'.on her faco.  Ho saw her lips move in a word,  and then tho - door closed upon her.  "Shameless young hussy," he gasped. "Don't believe you've been out  o' tlio houso at all. Washed her  face for somethin"!     Eh,  what?"  "Geoffrey Arnold stood thoro like a  man thrilled by a miracle, staring at  something he had torn from the envelope. ' Quito easily tho watcher could  seo it was n postal order. Over  and over the shaking fingers turned  it; the staring eyes looked all round  tho room and back at the slip of  notcpapor that had accompanied it.  Ho took two strides toward the window. If lie lived n hundred years  longer, Stove Parkins would not forget that strangely-suspicious cry ���������  almost a broken shout, indeed.  "Ten shillings���������'from a friend'!  More than thu three Weeks' rent I  owe for the room. Who knows? Who  bus don ii thi.'i for me���������where do you  Hnd *'jcli a 'friend'?"  In th'e ensuing silence Stovo Parkins had a sudden misgiving as to  his closo proximity to that top-back  room and its occupant. Ho clutched  the ladder sides and groped unsteadily down. Thero wns sweat on hia  forehead as he touched firm ground.  "Thought you was goin" to mako a  night of it," thc next-door man  grumbled. "Caught him at it, have  you?"  "I���������I dunno," Stevo gasped. "Toll  you when���������when I'vo figured it out  for myself.    Leave it to mo."  It was about dusk, Saturday ovening, when that hesitating tap came  at l.ho kitchen- door and a voico askod for Mr. Parkins. Mnttio gavo a  littlo start, glanced at hor father's  face, and saw that hla fingor was  pointing     "meaningly. Her      lips  blanching, hho obeyed ��������� moved  through* into tho dark, damp iittlo  scullery beyond. Stove Parkins  cleared his throat for action.  "Ves, you can como in, if you're  not too prowl, and don't mind fac-  in'   mo!"  "It's only that I'm really sorry  to havo kept you waiting, ifr. Far-  kins," Arnold said. His pale faco  flushed a littlo as he j laced a small  stack    of   shillings    on    tlio    tablo.  flame. He snatched up a coat; ho  throw it ovor his head and rushed toward tho stair���������tho stair that led-  up to liis precious book. His hands  wero burned, but ho reached it, and  was staggering up through th'o thick  smoko. It could bo dono! The firo  had roared up from those rooms on  tlie left, and the stairenso waa as  yot passablo for a man who had all  at stake. Now h'o liad gained the  first landing, gasping, almost sightless. Ho could do it!���������even if ho  hnd to  loaf   Prom  that high  window  a second tlmo.    And then   through' th'o rolling haze nnd curling  crimson tongues thero seemed to  como to his ears thnt whisper from  tho white-faced girl who hnd dono  so mucli���������perhaps more tlinn ho  would over know���������to make his strenuous liie bearable here, to make tho  path  to success less rugged.  "Savo him! You loved me ��������� save  him I"  Ono delirious sob roso in Iiisl throat.  He swerved round and gropad back  down tho stair, her name oa his lips  ���������"Mattio! Lovo for lovo!" Now  ho was facing tho bar of flame again.  He climbed th'e balustrade, hung for  an instant,  and  then dropped.  Tho  rest,   it scorned  to  liim,   occu..  "Nino!

And  then the Inner door swung hack, and  Mattio stood thero, tho dry sob  struggling in her throat, the strange  light in her dark e;.es. No time to  speak if die wished.

Father Crowley, of Chicago, the Catholic priest whose name is  familiar   to   Canadians   as   being the  author of a work entitled  "The Parochial School," which deals exhaustively with   the  attempt-of   the Roman  hierarchy  of   the  United   States  to  foist upon the American people a system   of  religious   schools,   has    just  issued a second edition of his work,  which has been enlarged by an appendix numbering CO pages and dealing  with the school system of Canada.  His work is the severest criticism  published yet on the religious school:  and coming as it does from a Catholic  priest it bears with it a weight that is  irresistible.  UNCOMPROMISING ANTAGONISM  As will be understood, Father Crowley takes up a position of uncompromising antagonism to the Separate  School. The efforts of the Canadian  hierarchy to promote the educational  clauses in the Northwest autonomy  measure come in for the strongest  condemnation. He does not spare Sir  ^-^Wilfrid~Liauriec_loi_atlie_.a_tl.jtude_he.  has adopted. His words are well  worth reading.   He says :  MACHINATION'S SECRET  "The probability is that the inwardness.' of the Northwest autouomy  measure will never be made public.  Tlie hierarchy glory in working in  the dark; they are in their element  where intrigues are concerned; they  delight in secret interviews, in half-  concealed threats, in dazzling promises  which are never carried out.  " How Sir "Wilfrid Laurier has been  wrought upon will likely remain for  ever among the hidden things of the  world; but as regards his having fallen completely under the  influence of the hierarchy there can  be no shadow of doubt. Remembering the stand he took in 1S93, when  . the Manitoba school question was  before the people of Canada; remembering his fearless denunciation then  of the aims of the hierarchy; remembering, also, his proved devotion to  the public weal in spite of all their  threats. I cannot but conclude that  Ijressure of an extraordinary kind has  been brought to bear on him, to induce him to wheel right about and  take a position tbe opposite to that  ���������which he formerly occupied.  UNUSUAL PRESSURE.  "There must have been secret inttr-  mises of the strongest character. Indeed, it is not too much to believe that  the authority of the Vatican itself has  ���������been called in to compel Sir "Wilfrid's  submission. For without pressure of  a most unusual character no man  would ever dream of making the volte  face that Sir Wilfrid has made.  "Sir Wilfrid Laurier had not even  taken Mr. Haultain into his confidence  although the legislation he intended  proposing was for the region over  which Mr. Haultain's authority extended. Surely a most curious state  of matters. More,' it has been definitely established that Sir Wilfrid did  not so much as- take into confidence,  in respect to this measure, all the  members of his own Cabinet���������a most  unusual proceeding for a Premier,  under the British system, to adopt.  AN APT SCHOLAR.  "Opposition was shown-- on every  side. Was it not rather because he  knew the opposition would be intense,  iind on the���������, part of the people who  were most interested? That is the  more likely explanation, and one that  has been confirmed by the later developments ot the case.  "When the aims of the. hierarchy  are concerned, provincial rights and  all other things must go. Sir Wilfrid  learned his lesson well. He proved  himself an apt scholar. To satisfy tbe  hierarchy he outraged the constitution  of the countrj-, went back upon his  own record and played the autocrat,  when he should have been the defender of the people's liberties.  "Had his life closed in 1S90, he  would have been lauded in history as  the first of ��������� patriots and among the  most lofty minded of; public men; but  through his attitude in 1005 in connection with the coercion of the Canadian west, and his subserviency to the  interests of the hierarchy, his name  1wilUstand^in^the^anuals^olLthfe.cou.n-i  try as that of a man who betrayed  his trust."  What the Day Means to Greater Britain ��������� Concentration  Wanted and Less Provincialism.  "The why and the wherefore of  Empire Day," is the subject of the  fourteenth of tho series of "Empire  Lessons" now appearing in the London Daily Mail. It reads as follows :  For morc. than threescore years May  21th was observed as a day of general  rejoicing and thanksgiving throughout the sea-sundered states of the  British Empire as the birthday of a  great and beloved sovereign, the  prestige of whose namo has no parallel in the world's history. Year by  year upon that day three hundred  millions of the human race returned  thanks for thc rule of a queen and an  empress who was also in the truest  sense a woman; for the native races  over whom she ruled, although they  regarded her as a spirit, immortal,  I supernatural, had learned by their  Views   innumerable, threats  and pro-  experience that the flag of her empire  LESSONS ON  EMPIRE DAY  was the symbol of truth, honor and  justice.  Now that the Great White Queen is  dead the anniversary of her birth has  been invested with an observauce  worthy at once of hcr saintly character, and of the halcyon days that  waited on her dominions while she sat  .'upon the British throne. There have  been periods less in years when British arms have won more victories  against our foes, and when vaster  additions have been made to the  extent of our dominions; but there is  none that can compare in steady progress, constitutional, intellectual and  tending towards the development of  the empire, than the reign of Queen  Victoria.  So  it comes about that May 2-lth  from being tlie  birthday of the best-  Iovcd woman who has ever graced a  throne, has become a day that should,  and we trust will, become a symbol to  the British people at liome and across  the  seas   of  tho  greatness   of  their  inheritance  and   their destiny.   It is  our  pride   to   be   able to point to a  record   of  achieviuent in   world-wide  and   beneficent   dominion that Rome  could never show, and that no other  nation since has ever approached, and  today every Briton may reflect with  pride that he is a citizen of no mean  empire, "but  an   integral   part   of  a  polity   upon    whose    shoulders,   for  better  or  for  worse, has  fallen   the  mantle of the leadership of the nations  of the world.   He may look back upon  a history   in   which   his flag has ever  stood as   the   immutable   barrier between freedom and oppression, and in  which the conflicts  that the tenancy  of such a position   has brought upon  his country have almost without exception  been  carried   to a successful  conclusion.  Yet glorious as.*' is the history of our  race and fascinating though it be to  recount the stages by which we have  marched on from one, success in arts  or arms   to   others   still   greater and  more  glorious, is  not for that that  Empire Day is celebrated.     When we  become so satiated'with our own magnificence and so thankful  that we are  not as other  men  that  we can close'  our eyes in complacent contemplation  of ourselves, it will be a very bad day  for us and a good one for -those upon  whose   inferiority' we. are so intent.  It is the duty of every Briton to realize  that the" empire to-day is merely  in a stage of its development, and that  upon him falls a. share of tbe responsibility   of  leaving   it a step further  advanced   thau-when   he    found  it.  There are other empires, and would-be  empires, growing  up around  us, and  tp stand still in the face of their progress would  be quite as disastrous as  actual retrogression.  Empire Day. in short, should be a  day devoted in part to thanksgiving  for the past, hut in a far greater degree to a contemplation of the future.  How can we, the individual atoms of  which- the empire is built, best help  towards its conservation and the maintenance of our heritage in the posilion  compared to alien powers in which  we found it? It is not given to every  iman-to-erush4iis=caunt_v____^!!ue-^inJ  ix Trafalgar, nor to serve his fellow-  men with such distinction as did  Drake, or Clive, or Chatham; but it is  possible for every one of us, by the  careful cherishing of those qualities of  justice, truthfulness nnd honor that  have done more than anything else to  give us our place in the world, to  render ourselves worthy of the responsibility, above all, for the protection  and good government of one quarter  of the inhabitants of the globe.  The greatest danger that besets us,  and one from which nearly all others  take root, is thnt of provincialism, of  individualism, of a tendency to become  so wrapt up in our own personal and  local affairs as to lose sight of the  empire that lies beyond our thresholds  and shores, and for this reason the  importance of the general observance  of Empire Day can scarcely be Overrated. The tendency of life everywhere is all toward concentration,  specialism and introspection. We  who hold our place among the nations  of the earth solely by virtue of those  grean and scattered lands that form  our empire, nro but too apt to forget  the sister states that make us great,  and to cherish a deplorable ignorance  of the lives of our fellow-subjects in  tho lands beyond our own, Not to  England or to Great Britain alone  docs   this  apply; it is a canker   that  cries aloud for eradication from every  state of our great commonwealth.  Taken in conjunction with the absence  of a really imperial parliament, this  forms the most serious of all dangers  besetting the future of the British  people, find the Over-Seas Daily Mail  is, we hope, but the pioneer of othor  schemes no less ambitious or successful whose aim will be to combat it.  And it is because we also believe that  the setting apart of ono day in tho  year to bo devoted to a festival of  imperial thanksgiving and meditation  is eminently calculated to go a long  way towards romoving that danger  that wo givo to the celebration of  Empire Day our wholc-heai ted support.  To Lord Meath is primarily due the  credit for having conceived the celebration. For years he has advocated  the establishment throughout the British empire of a holiday when thought  could bc given to imperial topics,  especially by young people. When,  on the occasion of tho assembly iu  London of the prime ministers and  governors of our over-sea states, they  were approached and their aid in furtherance of tho scheme was invoked, it  was readily given, and observance of  Empire Day was at .once promised.  Slower to move in a new direction  than some of her offspring the. mother  country last, year made celebration  for the first time, and then only partially so, as far as the self-governing  nations and crown colonies and Great  Britain are concerned. India, unfortunately, has not yet joined the movement, but even in this great dependency individual festivities were organized, and the time will assuredly not  be long arriving when,the observation  will be universal.  Since our .cares must be for the  future more than the past of the present, it is but. right that special endeavors should be made on this day. to  impressupon our children the naturo  and extent of the responsibilities that  will be theirs when they reach man's  estate, and for .this reason we- are  especially glad-to note the enthusiasm  with which this year the day was  celebrated in the'schools of Great and  Greater Britain. 'Bducation- in the  duties of Imperial citizenship should  be part of the code of every school  under, the flag,     s ^        \'  To those who already share'the burden of empire, Empire day should be  the occasion of a solemn resolve to  foster and safeguard the bond which,  far from being a mere matter of  sentiment, is the bed-rock foundation  TALKED  ABOUT THE JUDGS  ���������Who'i tlio Oulil   Woman IT 1th tlm ICoJ  lied Cut-tains Itouml ll������r.  There was a very good story being  retold, but which ls actually a true  Etory of those days. A Judge was trying a caso where the accused could understand only the Celtic language, and  ro an Interpreter had to be employed.  The ollicial Interpreter was a good fellow, whose wish was to do Justice, but  he certainly had leanings toward the  defendant.  .  Tho accused man was holding a  long conversation with the interpreter,  and that worthy did not translate the  speech to the court. At last tho Judge  demanded to know what had beep  eaid.  "Nothing, my lord," was the Inter  flretor'B unblushing reply.  "How dare you say that when we all  hoard you talking to hlni. Come, sir,  What was It?"  "My lord, lt had nothing to do with  the case."  "If you do not tell me what he said  I'll commit you for contempt. Now,  what did he say?"  . "Well, my lord, you'll excuse mu,  tmt he said, "Who's tliat ould woman  with the red hed curtains round hor  citting up there?"  Every one In court laughed, and tho  tip-staff, did not, for a moment, try to  stop tho unseemly conduct. The Judge,  ln his red robes and white wig, colored  until his face was brighter than hit  red robes and asked:  "And what did you say?"  ''1 said, 'Whist, ye spalpeen!

I was making a pedestrian tour or  Ireland in the latter days of the Fenian movement, and many curious Incidents came under my observation,  showing how zealous the royal Irish  constabulary was in arresting strangers and charging them secretly with  Fenlanlsm. At that time the habeas-  corpus act was repealed and any ono  arrested could be kept in prison, without a trial, for a period of two years.  When a man was tried he felt that ho  was -to face a partisan judge and a  packed jury. I am not going to make  the charge that Juries were always  ���������willfully packed,.but I know that many  a Jury was afraid to give -. an accused  the benefit of any doubt, because -the  liberty of each member of that Jarj  .was Imperiled.  I remember of reading of one Instance where the accused was so well  pleased with the personnel of the Jury  that he did not challenge any one, but  when: his counsel whispered that it  was strange he.replled: "The Jury's all  right, hut I'd lolke to challenge the  Judge/'  The,witnesses were "also afraid to  testify too strongly In favor of the defendant; for If they did they, might be  treated as I heard a witness treated in  Cork. Judge Keogh, who had been a  Nationalist: at one time, but ��������� was accused of betraying his fellow Nationalists, listened to a witness who told a  very straightforward story, and then  advised the chief of police to look Into  the character of the witness, as It was  likely.he was a Fenian.

In Ireland the peasantry still use. tha:  word "killed" in Its original sense, conveying the Idea of serious injury .rather  than death. A.

Irene put tho bracelet in her pocket  ond Jlrs. Hooper stood hy, her hands  folded  while  they  took  their  leu.  Kvery now and then sho raised her  eyes and lookod at thom, and .Madge  once or twice caught the gluuce  directed to herself.  She felt tho gaze of the sad, frightened eyes and as she walked to the  door.   Sirs. Hooper  looked after hcr.  "Airs. London in- a very lieautiful  young  lady. Miss," she snid timidly.  "Ves, indeed!" assented Irene,  warmly. "She is lovely. Did you  ever soo such hair and eyes?"  "Xo, Miss; they're wonderful. I  suppose Mr. Uoyce Landon is very  fond of her?"  "Of course ho is!" Ireno said with  surprise at. the question.  "I���������I beg your pardon, my lady,"  faltered Mrs. Hooper confusedly. "I  was not thinking of what 1 was saying. As you say, he must bo very  fond of her, being so boautiful and  proud."  Irene was silent for a moment, for  there seemed a note of interrogation  in Mrs.  Hooper's voice.  "Iiy the way. Mrs. Hooper, you  haven't seen Mr. Koyce?" sho remarked  presently  could not. succeed; and as they drovo  up to lhe Towers Madgo looked up  with a faint shiver ns if its shallows  had  fallen ut'runs  hor  heart.  After tno two ladles had left the  cottage Mrs. Hooper stood at the  door looking after them for some  time; then she went in, locking the  iloor after her, and resumed hor  small household duties. The morning passed into afternoon, ami tho  afternoon into evening, and tho waning light still left her sitting thero  brooding.  Sho got up nt hist with a heavy  sigh, and lit tho paraflln lamp, and  had just got the globe on when there  came a knock ut tho door.  "It's she," sho murmured. "I'm  stupid and foolish to-night, but it's  the thinking,  thinking!"  With the lamp in her hand she went,  to tho door, unlocked it, and opened  it a few inches. Then she uttered a  frightened little cry, and tried to  close it again, for a man stood on  tho step.  "Who's thero?"  she asked.  "Don't be alarmed, ma'am," was  the reply, in a whining voice, "it's  only a gentleman as wants n drink  of water."  She pushed tlie door hard,  but the  X���������o.     Not for somo years.   Miss,   man had slipped his foot between  it  No,  not at all,  I think.'  Irene looked at her. 'llio most ordinary question seemed to upset tho  weak-nerved woman.  "Perhaps you aro thinking of his  brother,  Seymour?" sho aaid.  "Miss.   I���������I'vo seen Lord Landon."  "Of course," said Irene; "hc was  here the other day with me, you  remember."  "Yes, I remember," assented Mrs.  Hooper in a low voice, and as Ireno  rose she got the tea-things together.  Then she stopped and glanced towards tho door where Madge stood,  her supple figure standing out  against the sunlight.  "About that bracelet, Miss. Perhaps you'd be so kind as to give it  to her ladyship quietly."  "Quietly!" echoed Irene, raising  ier brows.  "I���������I mean to give it to her.whon  she's alone. She might feci annoyed  pt leaving so valuable a piece of  jewelry  behind her."..���������.;������������������.  "You need hot .be (uneasy'-' on that  score, Mrs. Hoopor. Her ladyship  ���������rill not be annoyed in the least.  Sho has so many 'bracelets that I  doubt whether sho would have missed this���������at any rate for some time.  I thin'c we must he going now.  Thank you for the cup of tea. Is  there anything I can do for you?  Anything I can send you from the  Towers? Are you fond of reading���������  would you like to havo somo books?  Vou must find it dull here, all alone.  "N'o, thank you. Miss. No, I don't  feel it dull.   I like the quiet of it."  Tho two girls got into the pony  carnage, and as Irene drovo off she  said:  "What do you think of Mrs. Hoop-  r.r,  Madge? Poor   woman sho     is'  drcadfullv  nervous   and   timid,    isn't  die?"      *  Madge was silent for a moment,  ihen she said:  "Yes. Why does she look so fright-  ;nod? And if she is so ti'.nid, why  iot-s she live in such a lonely spot?"  "I don't know," said Irene. "She  a an old servant of her ladyship, as  t told you. and she always declares  ^hat she likes to livo as sho does,  jut I think I must porsuo.de madam  io send one of the younger girls to  dve with her���������that ir,." she added  quickly, "you must persuade her."  "I!" said Madge, opening her eyes.  "Yes. dear. It is you who must  do that kind of thing now; you are  ner daughter-in-law, you know."  Madgo smiled   sadly.  "I am afraid the countess would  not be persuaded to do anything by  "me; and i Sh^rd~l)e_TnWre_=hbrv6iJ.'5"  than Mrs. Hooper if I wero to attempt to persuade her ladyship; especially aftor���������after this morning."  Ireno changed the subject quickly,  and gradually wooed a smilo to  Madge's face: and tho two girls were  driving along happily enough, when  suddenly Koyce came riding down  upon thorn from a lane.  "Have you enjoyed your drive,  young  ladies?" he inquired.  "Oh. very much." said Madgo.  "Where are you going,  Royce?"  "Into the town." he said. Then,  sfter n moment's pause, he added.  wiih forced lightness, "lly tho way,  Irene, can Johnson, tho tailor, be  trusted to mako a habit for Madge,,  do you  think?"  Madge's faco turned crimson nnd  then pale, and Irene blushed in sympathy.  "Oh, yes, I should think so," she  ;cplicd.  "Well, we'll give him a trial, nny-  :ow," he said with an unnatural  iarelessness. "The fact is, I forgot  Ji have one made for her when we  vere in London. I'll hurry him up  nith it. for I've looked at that horse  tor you. Madge, this morning.-; You  aiight drive in to-morrow and'try-it  in���������the habit I mean and not the  lorse. Good-bye! I shall overtake  rou if you don't take care." And he  ;al loped  od.  Madge looked straight before her  is they drove on in a pninfui silence;  hen ' Irene stole her hand into  Hadge's and whispered her namo  onsolingly.  Madge turned her eyes toward her;  hey  were  full  of  tears.  "She told him that fhe. had seen  no on  the colt."  sho said.  "And if she did!" retorted Irene.  ���������Who cares?"  "Uoyce cares," suM Madge, in a  'ow voice. "I���������I saw by his face!  Ah,   it  is  of no use, no use!"  Irene tr>>d tn encourage her, and  ���������nado  ligfit  of Cw lnclduut,   but    she!  and tho frame,  nnd forcing it   open  stood  face to face with her.  Martha Hooper held the lamp as  high as her trembling hand permitt-  c(L and as tho light fell upon tho  man's face she screamed and shrank  back against tho wall.  "How d'yo do, Martha?'- he said;  "kind of a surprise; ain't it? You're  cocked all of a heap with joy, ain't  you? Oome, pull yourself togcthc.,  and don't stare as if I was a ghost."  "It���������it is you, Jake!" she gasped  at last.  "Of courso it's mo!" he retorted,  with a mocking laugh. "Did you  tako mo for my brother, who died  beforo I was born ."  "I���������I thought you were dead!" sho  panted, eyeing- him with hopeless and  fearful  honor.  "I dare say," he sneered, "the wish  was father of the thought, eh? Well,  I ain't dead; though,������������������'for the mattor  of that, I am nearly, for the want  of something to eat and drink. Come  unglno yourself Iroiii^ that Wall and  do the hospitable. Where's th'o fatted calf,  and  tho red, red wine?"  She went along tho .wide passage,  with her hand against the wall, a������  if she had scarcely strength to walk  unaided, and led the way into the  room in which the two girls hutlr.nl.,  "Humph,, pretty well, but it isn't  my idea of comfort. Tako nio ..where  there's a lire."  .Ho "limped before her into the kit-  cheu, and stirred the lire with his  foot.  "That's better," he said; "and now  what have you got to eat and drink  ������������������specially drink? Don't stand there  gazing as if I were a stuffed pig. Pull  yourself together, Martha! Lord,  you're just tho same frightened, scared, rabbit-headed individual you  used to-be. Hut you've altered in  appearance, .my������������������dear. You've got  old, my dear. You've got old,  Martha���������very old!"  i-he drew a long breath and wint  tremblingly to a cupboard, and  brought out the dinner she had left  and placed it on the table.  couldn't hold a candlo to nio; mon  who used to play Laertes to my  Hamlet, and Mercutio lo my Romeo,  got on tho London boards and mado  their fortunes. Hut luck was dead  against me���������doad!, ' And yet they called mo tho Gentleman strollor. Ho  lookod down nt his fustian, mud-  stained clothes, and sighed pensively  for a moment, then ho looked up  with angry impatience. "But what  do you care? You that wont and  desert od me, when my luck was at  its worst, and because I hadn't any  money!"  "No," she murmured, "I would  have starved with you, and you  know  it.   it  was  not  till you  drove  mo awny,   till  I was afraid "  hor  hnnd unconsciously wont up to a scar  hidden by her smooth, thin gray  hair.  "Well, that's enough of old times.  What havo you- been doing with  yourself? What are you doing for a  living now? You seem pretty comfor-  tablu." Ho glunced round tho plain  but neatly furnished kitchen. "Yes,  you're comfor^iblo enough!"  "And yon ain't married again, and  livo  all   alono    here?   Why "      ho  laughed un unpleasant laugh, "blest  if I wasn't forgetting! Whoro's tho  boy?"  Martha      Hooper's      faco     became  whiter, it" that was possible,  and her  lips  trembled,  and ut  last cume out  tho words:  "Dead!"  "Dead, eh!" ho said. ' "Woll, ��������� whom  the gods lovo dio young. That's  Latin. So the kid's, dead, is ho?.  Well, ho was jjIT your hands, . anyhow; you hadn't got to keep him as  well as yourself. And how aro you  living, oh? What mado you choose  this dead-and-alive-spot?"' Ho looked  round. "It's a wonder you haven't  boon murdered in your bod, old woman." ���������  Martha Hooper shuddered.  "Perhaps it would havo been better," sho murmured almost to 'herself.                        '  "Eh?" he said. "What aro you  muttering at? Why don't you answer  my question?"  "I���������-I'vo saved a littlo money, and  ���������and I do a little needle-work," sho  said   faintly.  He looked at her for a moment  through his half-closed eyes���������a look  of savago amusement.  . "My dear," he said, "you woro always a poor hand at lying; and, if  anything, you'ro worso now. There,  I know all about it. You've got a  friend among the nobs', Martha; a.  friend who's put you in this snug  little cottage, and made you comfortable  for the rest of your life."  Sho opened her lips a.s if to contradict him, but no Word came; and,  watching her with the ,same sinister  smile,  ho went on-  "And very nice it is to have such  a friend���������very nice. I wish I'd ono  liko it, and such a nob,, too. A real  countess!"  Marl.l.a Hooper sank into tho chair,  .her pnU; eyes fixed on his, a.s if waiting  I'or   somo  blow.  "You sor-', I know a littlo about it.  lint don't it :;trike you as curious,  considering all things���������I say,' considering all " things���������tliat her ladyship  sliould take you. Martha Hooper, in  hand?"  "1���������I. was an old servant," she faltered.  Iio laughed and knocked the ashes  out of his pi. o on  the clean door.  "Stuff ar.d humbug! The Countess  of Landon doesn't pension of! all her  old servants. Why should she you?"  Martha Hooper started as hc pronounced the title, ar.d he nodded and  leered  nt  her.  "Surprised Lhnt I know who it is,  eh?" he said. '���������What do you take  me for? I've been here two days,  my dear, and I've learned a great  deal in that time. Tor instance. I've  learned that the countess ��������� not only  finds you in home-rent and grub and  beef,   my  dear,   hut   that  she  sneaks  ing airs you  wero tho vilest   wretch  that ever deceived and ill  treated    a  woman "  Sho stoppod for lack   of  breath.  .lake did not move, but sat puffing  at his pipo and leering up at hor  keenly.  "i'ravo, old woman!" ho said.  You've pluckod up a bit of spirit at  last "  "Yes," sho breathed. "At la.st!  You���������you asl<ed mo why 1 do not  turn you out of tho house. I do!

"Sho wouldn't, ch?" he snid, as if  considering deeply. "She'd stop your  allowance, oh Martini? Turn you  out  of  tlio cottage?"  "Yes!" sho ivanted, "and I should  deservo it if I harbored you, Jako  Hooper."  Ho sprang to hi:i foot and strodo  toward hor.  "1 don't think sho would!" ho said  with his head on ono side, an evil  smilo on his lips. "No, I don't  think so. Shall I toll you why,  door?'  She looked at him fearfully nnd  shrank back.  "Shall I toll you?" ho repeated.  Ho caught her by tho arm and drag-  god her to him, and whispered huskily in her ear.  Sho uttered a cry, a torriblo cry,  and dragging herself away from him,  shrank back against tho wall, hor  hands 'pressed . over her.' heart, hor  eyes dilating and fixed upon him.

SCOTT & IIOWNK, ClmiimlK, Toronto, Oat,  Anything that Professor EGacckcr  hns to say on tho subject of tho  dairy cow will command attention  as it will be based on a long experience and is sure to bo conservative  and consequently accurate  At a recent dairy mooting Trot.  Haeckor  had   this  to  say:  "A cow should always bo brought  tb her freshening period in prime  physical condition. It is not meant  that she should be fat, but that she  should bo in good physical tone.  This can generally bo brought about  by giving her two or tliroo pounds  of bran, or bran and shorts oqual  parts, or oats during the timo when  shei is dry. This will cause her to  start in her lactation period with a  maximum flow of milk. Sho will,  during tho timo, that sho ia dry,  store'up 100 to 3 50 pounds of surplus weight of body, whicli will  milk down during the first few weeks  of hor lactation.  By the timo sho has returned- to  h'er .normal weight slio should be  on full ft , which, with' us, during  the past few years, has been six to  twelve pounds of grain, according to  the dairy work that she is doing and  as much rougago as sh'o will eat up  clean. If tho farm grains aro chcap-  | or, pound for pound, than commercial feed stuffs, such aa oil, gluten  feeds, cottonseed mcnl or bran and  shorts, then the ration should he  chiefly composed of grains, always  using  TWO OR THREE KINDS.  "l_io nearer we can keep th'o food  within tho farm _.crop, th'o more  money Wo will make. Tho basal ration should bo farm grains of which  oats is tho bost milkfeed. Gluten  feed- and meal and linseed and cottonseed meals should be fed vory  sparingly on account of pricc. Protein, however, 'i9 generally the cheapest in tho foods containing a liigh  per cent. of this Important nutrient.  "But all does not depend upon tlie  particular combination of feed stuffs.  You should liave good cows and bo  good dairymen. If either of theso  factors aro wantiivg tho .desired ro-'  suits will not bo attained.  "In thc first place, cows should  come fresh' in the fall. If ithe calf  is dropped in the spring, great  shrinkage in tlio flow of nnilk will  follow during tlie summer, when unfavorable conditions prevail, over  which we have little control. Flics,  short pasture and press of farm  work invariably raise havoc with  the flow of milk, and byifnll you  will have a lot of unprofitable strippers to board.  "If good winter quarters aro pror  vided, and-a liberal supply of rougli-  ago arid some" farm grains" aro grown  with cows fresh in the fall, a bettor  and more profitable yield can bo secured.' With cows in full flow during stall feeding hero is profit during the, winter, oven if feed Is expensive. Thon wo got bettor prices,  and this is an additional reason that  the largest yield should be at this  season.  "Much attention should lie given  to__cach _cow._ especially., as.stio ap-  tinn for'digesting food and secreting  milk wlicii quietly at rest in si ml I  and chewing the cud, than when  wandering about tlio yard waiting  to I o let into the .stable. Too much  stress has boen placed upon, finding  a Hti-called balanced ration, the  kinds and combination of feeds, aud  too littlo upon tlio comfort of tho  cow, gentle treatment and strict  regularity."

Sheep should not bo'compelled to  eat at th'o saime rack witli cattle.  Cut straw as a betiding for silieop  keeps the dirt out of tlio wool.  In mixed farming, there is nothing  tlint will pay better than a small  flock of sheep.  Sheep should never bo kept beyond  thc ago of thrift nnd vigor.  If you keep sheep, put enough good  blood into theni to got tho best returns  from   thoir  products.  Th'e greatest profit in feeding sheep  for million is gained whilo tho animals aro young.  Sheep, kept clean, aro not affected  by scab, except it bo comununicalcd  to th'om by scabby slieop.  In selecting a ram, it is important to see-that the wool is as near-'  ly ns possible of ono grade throughout tho entire fleece.  As a rule, sheep aro dainty, nnd  will neither cat dirty food nor drink  foul water unless compelled by extreme hunger or  thirst.  A lnmJ) tliat persistently eats snow  will rarely do well, lieneo the habit  should bo broken up ns soon as possiblo.  Nothing is moro certain Uian th'at  a sheep living on thc dry feed of winter cannot prosper without drinking.  I'ho. manner of feeding has considerable to do witli tho amount of cold  slieep can stand.  A laiiVb's cotted fleece is much  moro worthless than the fleece of an  old slieep.  Tlie moro sheep a mnn can keep on  a given area tho smaller will bo the  cost of production.  Whilo a wet fleece is to bo avoided  it is not really as bad as wot feet.  lt is certainly much bettor I o cull  at an early age and not wait until  a slieep has lost you money beforo  it is sold.  It is not only important that Uio  flock, as a wholo, should guin itv  value, but each sheep of the Hock  should  be gaining.  It is not altogether the mnnber of  pounds you put on that niakoa tho  profit. It is tho flesh that tlioy aro  in  that     makes   thom   sjll   well     in  market.    In feeding hay to slioop, as' with'  grain, no moro should be given them  than is really eaten up cleait; 'moro  than   this  is  wasteful.  Sheep should be so gentle that the  owner can go anv>ng tliem without  causing a scare and rush.  Jumping ovor rails and bnrst is exercise, but not just the kind that  breeding  owes  need.

Mikado's  Soldiers   Say .They    Aro  Brave  Men.  Japan has endeavored to raiso tho  business of espionage to the standing  of an honorable .profession.,. It . re-_  gards its own spies with tho same  prido that it feels for its soldiers.  Evory ono remembers tho incident of  tho Japanese oir.cera who, disguised  as Chinese, were arrested in the early  days of tho war, when thoy wero  about to make an attempt to blow  up tho bridge ovor tho Sungari  Kiver. Tho rnn'c of the senior oflicer  says Mr. Douglas Story, in "The  Campaign With Kuropatkin," was a  colonel.  llo'oro thoy went out to stand  against the Russian platoon of infantry, they specially bequeathed tho  money in their pockets to tho uses of  tho Uussian lied Crors.  To mark tlieir appreciation of espionage as a distinct branch of honorable warjaro, the Japaneso did a  curious thing after -lho Battle of  I.,iau-yang. They captured a Uussian  spy, dressed as a Chinaman, and  lifter shooting him, passed into tho  Uussian lines a communication... in  which tliey hailed him as a bravo  man. and expressed tho hopo that thc  Russian' troops held many others  such  as  hc.  When one remembers tho execration  with whicli spies have been hailed by  other nationalities, this Eastern exultation of Uio culling i.s, to Say thc  least  of  it,  curious.  To becomo famous in fivo continents at twenty-four, and to crown  this raro feat by winning for his  wifo the charming daughter of a peer,  is .such good fortuno nn falls lo tho  lot of few men in n generation. And  yet tliis is hut part of thu wonderful  achievement of (lugllelmo Marconi,  who recently led ono of Lord Inchi-  quin's fair sisters to tha altar, snys  London Tit-Uits.  Jf ever a man was justlllod In  counting himself tho favored child of  fortune,��������� surely it is this young Italian, who leaped in four short years  from obscurity to a fanio wider than  ovon Pitt enjoyed, nnd who, whilo  still in the twenties, has mado his  namo a "household word" all tho  world over. And; perhaps nn equally  romnrkahlo thing, ho remains as unspoilt as when he was an obscure  student ot Dologna und spent his  spare hours  DADBI.1NO IN CHEMISTRY  in tho laboratory in his father's  house at (Jrifforo. In those days���������  and tliey are only ton years removed  from now���������ho was dooply lntorosled  in electricity, but only aa a hobby.  "I had lilted rip a rude laboratory,  or workshop,'.' ho says, "in my father's houso near liologna, whero 1 had  begun to work with primary battor-  ios and thermopiles, grappling with  tho problem of transforming heat  directly into electricity. I had also  experimented with lho utilization of  steam in engines, and had likowiso  been dooply interested in chemistry."  .Rut lie had then no more idea of  fame or of tho direction iii which it  would conio to him thsm tho man in  lho moon.  It was - the reading, in 189-1, in an  Italian journal of Uio work of Professor Hertz, that first suggested tho  .idoa of sending messages tlirough  fjpaco by means of otheric waves; but,  as ho says, "the idea S8emed so sim-  plo and evident to mo that at first  I had no thought of attempting practical experiments to demonstrate its  possibility, becauso I knew thoro  wero many clover mon in tho world  experimenting with otheric waves,  and I thought somo 0119 would quickly work out the problem."  It is characteristic of the unsellish-  ness and modesty of tho man that ho  actually waited nearly  a year  TO GIVE OTHERS A CHANCE  of taking tho palm which ho knew  ho had but to stretch out his hand  to- make his own; and it was only  wlien thoro was no sign of its being  appropriated that he.began to mako  his experiments, and.quickly succeeded in sending aerial messages a  couple of miles across his father's  ostate. What has happened sinco  thoso 'prentice days���������liow .ho has  sinco sent winged messages across  the wide Atlantic, has made it possiblo for ships to hold converse a  thousand miles apart, and how, in  fact, ho hns, witli almost a wizard's  magic, annihilated space���������the world  knows.  And what kind of a roan is this  magician who has still to sco his  thirtieth birthday'/ This is how ho  is descrihed by ono who knows him  well: "A slight young man of medium height, but who-scarcely looks  It, wllh brown hair, 'cut short and  parted at thc side, a light brown  moustache, decp-set blue eye������, and a  look of boyishness which lie novor  sjoiiir to outgrow. Just thc kind of  neat, well-groomed yo.ung men you  sco by the thousands in tlie streets o-f  London."  In fact, few men of famo ever  "looked tho part" less than this  wonderful young Italian. His modes- ���������  ty, too, amounts almost to difli-  de'nce; ho. -will-talk charmingly' on  any' subject but~ himself, and is ready  to take to liis heels at the mere mention of  THE WORD  "INTERVIEWER."  And yot he is sufficiently human    to  confess  that  "It  is  nice to be   fain- .  ous,"  and to  enjoy  tho fruits  of his  genius   and  industry.     Perhaps     the  most remarkable, thing about him is  his voico,  which is soft and low and  musical���������the voico, in fact, of his na-  ,tivorltaly;'=nnd-tho-coiitrast=:betwcc������====  his  slow,  deliberate  method  of  talking  and  his restless,   tireless .-'energy  when at work is as marked as   that  between his modesty and his achievement.  Ho has none of the eccentricities  which seem to bc tho usual accom- -  paniment, or geniur,. When ho was  once asked whether,, li'.'e Edison, ho  was ovcr so ��������� absorbed' in hla work  that ho forgot to' oat, he answered,  "I think never. You see, my stomach always cries out at tho proper  moment, and I always hasten to  obey its call"; and to the question,  "You wouldn't have starved for wireless telegraphy?" ho replied, with a  smile, "No, indeed; I havo too good  a  digestion."-  ARTESIAN  WELLS.

Lawrence and Teddy exchanged  puzzled glances.  "That means the sun dried it up,"  explained  Annabel.  "This one doesn't dry up," said  Teddy, skeptically. "I've been here  lots of summers."

Philanthropic   Englishmen   Plan  a  Model Town.  To build a city with industries ns  varied as to support a population of  thirty thousand, an������l to house the  people rst model lines in a community where everything is done to retain tho advantages* of the country,  is   the  ambition   of     a  company     of  thc magnificent Australian liner Qu-  etUi went to pieces on a hitherto unknown doalh'-trn.p in Torres Straits,  ami drowned l.'ttf of her passengers  nnd crew.  When tlie disaster wa.s reported to  tho Admiralty they bestirred themselves, and sent out an ironclad to  investigate the Golgotha of Uie deep.  Tho vessel discovered an extraordinary isolated rock, situated in the  centre of the Torres Straits, which  separates Australia from New (luinea.  FINDING  THE TORRES  NEEDLE.  It was a species of submerged natural monolith, similar in shape to  Cleopatra's Needle on the Thames  Emibankment, with its apex rising  to within a few feet of the surfaco  of tho ocean.  Tho warship, herself, was nearly  impaled on tho hideous spike, for the  "Torres Noedle," as it is now callod  on the chart, scraped sonuo feet of  paint off herjiull.  The exact position of the. "Torres  Needle," thanks to the Admiralty, is  perfectly well-known to-day to all  mariners who sail thoso seas, ' and  sinco tho' wrecking of the ill-fated  Quettn, no vessel has been impaled  upon it."  To our discredit a similar sca-  needie remained uncharted when- it  was known, that it was responsible  for mnny terrible disasters. It exists at Cape Agulhran, and after a  dozen or more stout ships liwil gone  to     pieces    upon it,     our  Admiralty  France has a special vessel for visiting her island possessions nnd collecting rents, rates and taxes from  th'om. This vessel when ofT duty, and  sho nearly always is, spends her timo  in delivering Government messages  to coast stations.  We have no partlciilac vessel for  rent-collecting, but now nnd again  wo are forced to send an ironclad or  a gunboat to Tory Island, on tho  north-west coast of Ireland, to try  to mako tho peoplo pay their rent,  rates uml taxes. Wo havo not succeeded yet, howevor, notwithstanding  that we have been "dunning" tliom  for tho pnst twenty years.  In 18*1 we sent the gunhoal Wasp  to the island, nnd whilo returning mi  poor us sho wont, slie wns wrocked  od the coast, und many of her crew  wore drowned. A few years ago a  bigger lighting vessel sailed to Tory  and even sho failed to collect a penny from the inhabitants.  Tlio Groimde, a French gunboat,  has so littlo work to do tliat she  goos off now and again to cnlch porpoises in the Mediterranean.  Tbo French fishermen arc glad when  the U'remidc, comes on tho warpath,  for the porpoises havo increased to  such an extent that thrir soa-iH't.s  are continually being torn to threads  by tho creatures.  H. M. S...Flora, while anchored at  Tort Stanley, in the Falkland Islands, was attacked by a huge, blnck  monster 'that arose with piercing  cries from thc foam. The Captain  armed'his crew witli harpoons and  rifles.to destroy the dangerous beast,  ami after two or tlnx-o hours' hard  fighting it was -killed, and dragged  on deck.

Children born between September  and February are, some authorities  state, not so tall as those born in  tho summer and spring months, and  the growth of children is mucli moro"  rapid from March till August. Tlie"  exlremeties grow rapidly up to the  sixteenth year,  then   /thoro is     slow  'growth until the- thirtieth year. The  logs chiefly-grow between the tenth  and,   .seventeenth  year.       Comparing  i tho general result, it appears that  there are six periods of growth. The  i first extends up to the sixth' or  eighth year, and is ono of very  rapid growth; tho second period,  from      eleven      to     fourtcert     years,  .growth" is slow; the third period,  from sixteen to seventeen; tlio fourth  period shows a slow growth up .to  tlio ago of. thirty for height, up to  fifty for chest girth: tlio fiftli growth  is one of rest, from thirty to fifty  years; the sixth' period is characterized by u ,decrease in all dimensions  of  tho body.'  land in Hertfordshire, some thirty-  fivo miles from London, and there  they are laying out and building  "tho first garden city in England.".''  The situation is high and healthy.  Tho land is fertile, nnd should provide much of the vegetables the. now  community will require. From most  parts of tho town thoro will be uninterrupted views of tho country, and  in the town itself natural ��������� features  aro to be preserved as far as possible. For example in tno  main square, round which will 6bc  erected the public buildings, stand  three old oaks. These are to be"left  and guarded.     ������  From tho railway-station to tho  square, runs tho main avenue, never  less than ono hundced foet wide, and  in nil directions from tho square will  radiate roads from forty fcj' sixty  feet wido���������that is to say, as broad  as the S.trand and Choapside, tho  busiest streets in London. Wido margins of grass will border them, and  to carry out the park-like appearance  the builders purpo?o that tlie house-  lots shall be arranged on what they  call "the New England, plan," of  open lawns and no front fences.  On the eastern sido of the town, beside the railway line, has been set  apart a site of about one hundred  acres for thc factories on whicli the  town will depend for its existence.  Bngineers, cabinet-makers, motorcar builders nnd printers are already  established. ��������� The factories arq to be  hidden from the, residences by", a belt  of trees, and as tlic prevailing winds  are from the west, tho smoke ���������. aiid  smell will be carried away from the  houses.     ,.     . ,.        ...

Everywhere there  \Viil=bc=publie���������gardens-nnd���������parks  and recreation-grounds, and nothing  ugly or unsanitary will bo allowed.  Tho company will bo ablo to enforce  such restrictions because it will sell  no land. Yet the rents from which  it is to draw its revenue havo been  fixod at less than half the average  rates prevailing in English cities.  Tho town itself will coyer thirteen  hundred acres, and if the surrounding villages aro included in the  "proposed total population," thoro  will be thirty-five thousand peoplo  in. the' whole community.

AN OCEAN . DEATH-TRAP.  To this end an ironclad'was ordered off to Gapo Agulhas, and while  dredging, some remains of a sunken  hulk were pulled up, which" proved  to be those of the mail screw steamier Teuton, which was impaled on  thc needle in the early morning of  August 80th,. 1881;.and founderod  within an hour, carrying with her to  the bottom of the sea over 200 of  her  passengers and crew.  When the Lords of tho Admiralty  were told that, there was a sunken  rock in mid-Atlantic, whose top was  only a little distance below the surfaco of the ocean, they laughed..  When, later, a couple of ships went1  ���������down in the Atlantic for. no apparent reason, they became more credulous, and sent a vessel out to look  into the matter. Thc captain cf the  ironclad found the rock situated  only a few miles to the northward  of the route taken by thc big Trans-  lantic liners.  Its whereabouts were indicated to  him by a small expanse of greenish  sea amid tho surrounding blue, with  a dark spot in the centre, who.re the  "cap" of the rock projected to within a yard or so of the surface of  the  Atlantic.  Thc position of the rock, called  "Tho Virgin," is now well-known to  mariners, and. for . years past this]  ocean- death-trap has failed to claim  a victim...  EXPERIMENTS, ON A WARSHIP.  Whenever a new rock or shoal' ' is  reported to the Adiairalty by oceangoing -vessels, If.M.S'.

Thc "sentry" has discovered hundreds of rocks and shoals during the  last few years,- and the A<fcnira:ty  have warned mariners of their whereabouts.  Some time ago the Research went  out to Ushant, carrying on board  Dr. Fowler, of tho��������� Royal Society,  for tho purpose of making experiments on tho depth' at which certain  forms of sea life were believed to  exist.  Dr. Fowler como homo loaded with  specimens, ami although" the trip hatl  cost tho Admiralty and the Royal  Society largo sums of money, they  were b'oth amply satisfied with the  result.  H. M. S. Research ami Gulnare  have wasted both time and money in  searching for non-existing rocks and  shoals in different oceans. The forrnr  er vessel sailed for two or three  days round the-mouth of the Channel in a vain search for a shoal reported as existing by half a dozen  merchant vessels of various nationalities, c  Not so very long ago the Irish  coastguards and ship-owners declared  that the Maiden * Rocks, near Lome  Harbor, on the West Coast of Ireland, were so magnetic that the compasses of vessels passing tliem were  affected, and in consequence could  not be relied on. Our Admiralty  sent one of her sea-searchers to Ireland, and she proved that the report  was false. That little trip cost Britain something over $500.
