II is situated nbout  8 miles north of the  city nnd they  found it pretty hard climbing to get  there, but were well lepnid for their  efforts as the lako is situated in the  midst  of  a  beautiful    lolling  plain  dotted with trees.     From this point  one can see for miles up tlie Columbia  valley and those who know tho country  say  that - La Pofte can be seen  from here.    , Messis. Macdonald and  Devine named . the lake, Grass Lake,  from the luxuriant grass which gtows  theiein, and erected a sign post with  the name printed* thcieon.   They also  visited  another A,lnke  in the vicinity  which feeds .the cieek that the city  employees a_e<-,at present diverting to  supplement ,the ^water supply.   This  they named Protection Lake, for the  ieas'on* that   when   connections  are  madec with the, present water supply  it will give increased lire protection to  the' city. " Mr.} Macdonald states that  Protection Lake is a beautiful sheet of  water ^.and clear, as ciystal.    A sign  post was also erected here.  Mr. ..Ma'cdonnldMnfoimed the Herald that excellent piogiess was being  made wiUr'the/city work.

Timely Interference of Neighbors Prevented a Horrible  Murder���������Seized With Homicidal Mania.  "What came very near behig������a hoi-  rible case eif wifo murder, and may  even yet be the cause of the unfortunate woman's death, occuned at  Langley, on tho south side of tho  Fraser a few miles above New Westminster, at 12.30 o'clock last night,  says the Vancouver Woild. For  refusing to take immediate action in  the matter, the provincial police at  New Westminster nie leceiving the  general condemnation of the residents  of the community where the affair  occurred.  At the hour mentioned last night,  Mr. Coulter and a friend of his, Mr.  George Allen, weie standing at Mr.  Coulter's door when they hemd noises  from a'neighboring house occupied by  an aged couple, Mr. und Mis. Mavis,  which unmistakably indicated that  there was trouble there. ���������> Tho house  was 200^ yards away und Mr. Coulter  and Mr. Allen ran towatd it as fast as  they could.' Nearing the place, they  saw av horiifying sight. A woman  was lying on het faco in the ditch and  a man standing over hcr hacking at  her head with a hatchet. When they  came up the man, who*1-proved to be  old man Mavis, inn ''back* towatd his  own house. Picking the woman 'out  bf the ditch, they found her still conscious. She told them .who she whs  and that her husband'hud gone cruzy.  OiTyery brief examination, they found  .the.woman to be in a teifibly lacerated  condition.'

Iiiimediately^acios's  the road and only alittle'distancefiom  the Mavis. residence lived Mr... C., E.  Hope,a son-in-law of the Mavis couple,  with his wife, their, daughter. * Mr.  Hope,,was fiist aroused and then Mi.  C. S. Ferris, the 'hotel keeper of the  village. , Mr. Hope and Mr. Allen carried the\������ld lady to the Hope residence  and Mr. Feuis invaded ,the Mavis  premises to capturef the"old man. At  first he olfefed to put up a fight but  was quickly o'veipoweied.^ Mr. Feriis  was left in-'charge of; the old man,  wiio divided his tune between bemoaning tho fact that he hocl not killed his  wife and regretting l that he had attacked'' her at all. ������ His ravings left  little room for doubt that the old man  was violently insane. Mr. Coultea, in  the meantime,, telephoned Dr. Ken-  dall^in Cloverdale*, who; being unable  to come, sent his assistant, Dr. Briggs.  Jle arrived on the scene in time to  tend tcTtheagedlady's temble injuiies  and her life may be spared. Later he  made an examination of the old man  but would not pronounce until he  could have the assistance of Dr. Kendall.  One Child Every Year.

' Strange Sect in London.  London, Aug. 22.���������There is joy  among the Agapeinonites, sectarians  who live in a retreat at Olapton, north  cast London, known as ''The Abode  of Love." To the Rev. J. H. Smyth  Piggott, as the world knows him, but  "The Messiah," as he calls himself and  is called hy his sect, has been born a  son, who has been chiistened Glory  Smyth Piggott. Th'e mother is Ruth  Gieece, a woman of independent  means, who recently joined the community in the "Abode of Love." ^She  fully believes that her heir is Divine.  The retieat is thronged by disciples  eager to do homage to little Glory.  The sect of the Agapemonites was  founded by a fanatic known as Brother Priuce al out thirteen years ago at  Spaxton, England. Six yeais later he  died, and Piggott, who had been a  sailor, miner, Episcopal clergyman,  Salvation Army soldier, etc , succeeded him as leader. The Agapemonites,  who are mostly well-to-do people of  the lower middlo class and who suppoi t Mr. Piggoit in luxuiy, believe  that the judgment is at hand, bave  disregaided such "vanities" as marriage, and hold other peculiar views  that led to their church being mobbed  about three years ago, since which  time, they have conducted themselves  as quietly 'as possible agd shunned  publicity.

Further conversation of a confidential nature was put an end by the  appearance of Captain Lucns and  the rising young jockey, Seymour  Barley.  Seymour and Jocelyn were the  twin children of old John Barley,  th'e well-known' trainer, whose hopes  for the coming, Derby wero centred  upon Sir 11'avilan.d Paignton's liorse,  Bright Days.  The brother and sis-tor were very  much alike, and Jocelyn seemed to  take a delight in accentuating the  resemblance by wearing her liair in  short, ciisp curls in imitation of her  brother.  Sir llavilnntl Paignton met J'occ-  lyn soon after his-succession to the  Heavily encumbered estates of his  uncle, and despite the rivalry of  Captain Lucas he quickly hail the  satisfaction of learning that the affection which he immediately conceived for her was reciprocated.  "Well,  Seymour,  feeling fit for  tomorrow?" ��������� ���������    ������  "Yes,   Sir  Havilnnd;     nnd   if     the  horse is only as woll -"  "Bo you really imagine that  Bright Bays is going to win?" nsked  Lucns.  "I do," answered Sir Hstviland;  "and, what is more, 1 have backed  my confidence to a considerable extent."  "Well, every mnn to his fancy, and  my fancy is The Falcon," answered  Lucas.  "To-morrow will show the result.  I should like a word with you, Seymour."  As Sir Haviland and Seymour drew  nway. Captain Luca's approached  Jocelyn.  "And so all your hopes are centred  upon Bright Bays to-morrow, eh?"  "Yes, hi.s success will -mean so  many bright days for me."  "And is.your happiness to rest noon the stamina of a horso and tlie  ���������abi 1 i ly= of ���������0*=j ockey ?^=J-Pli i n k==wel 1  what you arc choosing, Jocelyn. I  have offered you my love, a comfortable home, nnd a fair, income. Will  you throw these away for tho sake  of an  aristocratic pauper?"  "You have no right to talk to mn  like thi.s. I love Sir Havilantl, and  will marry him even if I :have to  work."  "Of which there is every prospect,"  sneered Captain Lucas; 'for I can  tell you this, that Bright Bays,  good horse as he is, will never win  ��������� the Derby, and fo-morrow your aristocratic lover will find himself moro  of a Pauper than he is now."  "I cannot listen to "  "One moment.    You ought to know  this  timo  that  I  am  a mnn     not  never leaves you for nn instant, and  thero is a frightened look in your  eyes whenever ho ie noar. Ah! Seymour, to-morrow mcansi so much;  tell live,  lad,  ia anything wrong?"  Then, to hcr surprise, Seymour  throw liis arms on tho table in an  agony of despair, and his frame  shook with heavy sobs.  "Oh,   .Seymour,   what   is  it?     Tell  mo, old boy, tell me!"  "I���������I am  ruined,  sis;  ruined."  "Ah! no, Seymour, don't say that,  dear Incl;    toll    mo all.    Is it���������is it  Captain Lucas?"  "Yes.     I���������I owo him money."  "Uo on,  Seymour;  tlioro is    something morc; tell me all."  "It happened about a month' ago.  I was in London with Cnptnin Lucas  and ho invited mo to his club. Thoro  wns a lot of card-playing going on,  and I was invited to tako a hand  with Cnptnin Lucns and a couplo of  his friends. '.I'ho stakes were pretty  heavy, and at first T won steadily.  After I had won about a hundred  pounds tliey proposed to doublo tlio  stakes, and being tho winner I could  not refuse."  "Yea, yes; go on,"  "Anil then my luck changed and I  began to lose, nntl when tho club  closed 1 found myself something liko  two hundredo and llfty pounds in  debt. Then ono of Lucas's friends  proposed that wc should adjourn to  his' rooms, where I could havo my  revenge. Like a fool I- consented."  "And then?"  "I won a little nntl then lost  again. We played until daylight,'  and then Abrahams, the man I lost  the money to, said that he'd had  enough, and offered to cut me double  or quits; tho lowest cut to'win. Whether they tampered with the wine or  not I can't Bay, but I completely  lost my head and consented. I cut  a ten and Alir/ihums cut the deuce. I  owed him soven hundred pounds,"  "Oh, Seymour!"  "Aye, I was n." fool, but that is  not thu worst of my folly. I only  hnd fifty pounds in the world, ami. I  signed a bill for six hundred and  fifty."  "But you can nover pav ib, Seymour. The bill is a debt of honor,  and Abrahams must wait. I will  help you all I can,  old boy, and    I  am. sure  Sir TJaviland "  "Ah!   but you  havim't heard     the  worst yet.    The,name on the bill "  "Yes?"  "Is not mine."  ".Seymour!"  "Yos: "Abrahams  would  not     take  my. nainie,   but  offered   to  accept  the  bill if..it-was signed "John 'Barley.' "  "Not dad's name?"  "Yes.    I refused nt first, nnd thoro.  wns    some    sort of a row.       I was ] come-  ve mcol again.   Captain Lucns  start ho seized tho opportunity to  whisper:���������  "At this timo to-morrow I will  again ask you to marry me. In, the  nienntimo think ovcr the disadvantages of being 'my lady' with an  empty larder."  Seymour could not -trust himself to  speak; lie simply nodded, ami, with a  wnvo of his lumd to Jocelyn, set oft  towards the. station.  Then Jocclyn, with Seymour's enp  perched on the back of her head,  faced Onptalri Lucas unflinchingly.  She liad too often tested her disguise in puro sport to fear discovery  but it was an anxious moment when  he turned his gaze upon lier.  "Well, tho oltl mnn Is. at Epsom  witli tho goe-RCi), Paignton lins gone  to his aristocratic casual ward, and  Jocelyn is out of tho way. Everything works well for our project,  youngster."  "Your project."  "Well,   mine,   if you like. Come.  Seymour, don't bo a fool. Which  would you prefer���������your bill back ami  your father's respect, or tho insido  of a jail nnd ruin?"  "You will keep your part of tho  bargain?"  "Tho bill will bo handed lo you  at three o'clock to-morrow, nntl bo-  sides this 1 have put twenty pounds  on Tho Falcon for you at tens.

Fully determined to carry out hcr  part of the programme, .'Jocclyn  made her way down the lane at tho  time stipulated. She had not gono  very far when slio was seized by two  men, and hoisted into a waiting vehicle. After half an hour's rapid  driving they pulled up at an old,  forbidding-looking house, which . they  forced her to enter.

He spoke with such confidence of  the downfall of Bright Days that  Jocelyn felt there".was more in his  words than slio could fathom,. und  she determined to fiuestion Seyinour  at th'e lirst opportunity.  "Come up to my den, Seymour; I  want to have a tulk with you."  "All right, sis; I'll be up in a minute."  And a few minutes later when     he  *s*ent     upstairs     ho     found     Jocelyn  staring across  the garden  nt the retreating form of Sir Havilantl Paignton.  "Anything  wrong,   sis?"  "That is tho question I want     to  ask you,  Seyinour.     Arc things woll  wilh you?"  "Why do you  ask?"

"And miss the Derby! Oli, Seymour, you uuust risk all and win  tliat race, whatever the consequences."

Abrahams pressed his throat .with  a tat finger and thumb in a significant manner, and then led the way  upstairs. The room Was small but  clean, and the window was barred.  As the door was locked behind Jocelyn threw himseli" upon the bed, and  Iny. awake, through the long hours  of the night listening to the high  carousal of .the watchers below.  When morning dawned in all its  glory Jocelyn thought regretfully of  the Ep?om racecourse and the exciting struggle for the Blue Riband.

Already it has been considered necessary to form.an "open space," and  Mr. C. E. Osman, tlie deputy master, nnd several members of the Gardeners' Company traveled down from  London for the ceremony of inauguration. Tho piece of ground chosen  for the park is well wooded,; and a  litllo : stream '.'.flowing tlirough it has  been induced ' lo fonni picturesque  lakes. Mr. Osinnn in declaring it  open gavo it the mi mo of Howard  Park, in memory of* the late wifo of  Mr. 1 Toward, the author of . the  "Garden City" idea. Tho city itself  is in a fair way lo materialize. Already it has waterworks, constructed- at a cost of $60,000, and a sewerage system, while its gas works will  be iixt work about -midsummer.  Thanks -partly to the labors ' of  some 400 of "the London unemployed,  it has about, four miles of well-made  road. The present population numbers nbout 3,000, und already has  provided itself with gold links.  At'present a number of buildings  in various materials ,arc<boing erected for the cheap cottago system exhibition to be held this summer,  which it is hoped will solve for the  land-owner the problem of how n  comfortable cottage can be constructed for nbout ������75. Ono vcry interesting experiment is to ��������� bo tried  shortly. Two small houses, with a  common kitchen, are being constructed. The economy of space iiii such  an arrangement needs no such emphasis, and if two housewives can  work at the same stove in peaceand  good-will lhc experiment should succeed. If it does, a.block of three  houses with co'mmon kitchens will bo  tried.  Somo progress in these arrangements may bc made towards a common meal. Jt is not contemplated  that families should din-a together,  but that while each has its own meal  a member of ono: family may.'���������* ptirT  take of a dish belonging to thc  other, ami vice versa. Thus,- a  greater variety in the menu may be  obtained. ... Whether tli-ese devices will  be successful is, however, a matter  for the    fiLture-__   The schemes     aro  friendt   Captain   Lucas.

"Have you got the result?*'  "No; but I expect a telegram any  minute."  They moved on into the house and  Jocelyn, utterly .cxliaustc'l, sank  down on a couch./  "There will be a rare to-do at Epsom when they miss you. We must  havo the talc all pit-pat. Halloa!

In this way King Edward has frequently visited sofmoof the strangest  and poorest parts of London, for Ills  Majesty has an insatiable desire for  knowing how tho meanest of His subjects spend their lives,.; and'. even' on.  a recent visit to Dublin nothing  would satisfy him but such a visit  to one of the most wretched parts of  tho Irish capital.

Two mon sat together on a bench  in llyilo Park. They wero both dressed alike���������in tho shining tnil hat nntl  frock-coat which custom imposes on  tho English gentleman in town during thu season. Ono was about thirty; the other might have been twenty  yours older. Both hud smooth-  shavcn. well-bred faces, passive and  cold. 'Thero was a difference, though,  in this coldness and passivity. In  tho caso of tho younger man it showed a fearless consciousness of a clean  and honorable life. In.tho case ot  tho other; it was tho icy effrontery  of a  daring and  dangerous criminal.  Strango to say, this impression  was born out by facts. Tho man of  thirty wus Paul Spurrier, captain in  the- aOlh Lancers, a D.S.O., in every  sense a soldier and a gentleman. The  man of fifty was Hart Brooking, nn  adventurer and a blackmailer. Ho  also boro the titlo of ."captain," but  it had been bestowed upon him by  himself in a moment of self-glorification. Nevertheless, it was scrupulously used by the motley mob of  card-sharpers, racing "heads," 'and  "niug-linders" among whom ho moved.  Tho men wore conversing in low  tones. A passer-by woulcl have deemed them two friends,' exchanging  ���������commonplaces. The low tones, the  impassive faces, tho careless attitudes, masked a conversation of sinister significance-  ��������� "I tell you I cannot find any moro  money just now," Spurrier was saying.  "Then I must claim my daughter,"  responded the other man.  "My Wife, 'who has the horrible  misfortune to  be your daughter!"  "My daughter, who has' tlio singular luck to be your wife," corrected  Brooking,, w-ith  a bow.  Tho young officer's'faco*. was livid  with fury. His companion noted this  and laughed softly.  "It!, wc. woro not within hail of that  fat policeman over there," ho remarked, "I verily believe that my  lifo" would bo in danger. That revolver, which you conceal in your pocket. Oh, you needn't start! I heard  it strike against thc bench as you  moved just now."  "You are running no risks," said  Spurrier coldly.  "Ah, you intended it for a different purpose! I thought so. Li*>o,  my dear son-in-law, live! Work hard  rise in your "profession, earn '"more  and moro money. I have need'of it  and you." ..       . .  "My service revolver," explained  the officer politely, "is not intended  for shooting vermin. With it I killed  Ba Khim. Ho was.a robber and' an  outlaw; but ho was a brave man and  a first-class fighter, and I was sorry  when wo. had to burn his village and  break up his gang. When I kill you,  which I shall probably do eventually,  I will strangle you."  Having made this promise in a  tranquil- and composed voice. Captain Spurrier.yawned and turnod" his  .gazo across the fresh greenery of tho  Tark.  Both mon were silent for a momont, thinking. Tho thought that  Spurrier, driven desperate by repeated demands for money, might commit suicide, annoyed Brooking -very  much. It meant the cutting off of a  comfortable annuity.  "I have ambitions for you, Paul,"  said   Brooking. ;  Spurrier shook with disgust.  "I wish you to get on; bo tho Kitchener of a new Omdurman. Tho  Government will givo you, a peerage,  ahd an afTectionato populace will  smash in your hat at Victoria Station. ���������;��������� You Will receive! tho thanks of  Parliament, and a grant of, say,  ������30,0.00. Of that I will allow you  ;t0 keep XI 5,000; the rest I shall require, as a provision for old age."  "I. trust tho supply of fools is not  yet exhausted,", said Spurrier.  "You will not annoy me, my dear  Paul,  by your   sneers at my .Jrofos-  sionl" Afler all, peoplo with money  and no brains a i'o intended for the  use. of people with brains and no  money."  "Tho author of that saying did  fourteen years," Paul said cheerfully.  Brooking turned lividly palo at tho  reminder of the Claimant's ultimate  fato.  Thc swindler was only discomposed  for a moment. To be a Hart Brooking you must have a norvo of iron.  "Your discourtesy, Paul," he said,  "will cost! you an additional i"50.  I asked you for ������100; now I shall  'want  ������150."  Spurrier gavo a harsh laugh.  "You might as woll ask mo for a  million. You arc about as likely to  got ',. ono as the other. I tell you  again that at this moment it is im  possiblo for ; mo to raise any more  monoy."  "Ah," said Brooking, "I am very  sorry!"  Spurrier jumped up from tho bench,  and, without another look at his  companion, walked swiftly away in  the direction of tho Achilles.  II.  From -the     conversation    reported  abovo,    it    was   evident that    Hart  .'Brooking.possessed  a secret connected with Captain Spurrier, for the retention of wliich tho latter was will  ing. to   pay  handsomely.  The secret, was this: *  When a subaltern, * Captain Spur  riot* hnd fallen in love with a young  actress in a touring company which  had visited the town where his regiment wa.s slation'cd. She was protty  well-bred, and charming���������an orphqii,  so tflio" told hiin, wiio had adopted  the stage ns a profession to support  horself and her invalid older sister.  Her father, a hard-working,general  practitioner, hnd'died in bur iiifnucy,  and her mother, after years of struggle, hnd quietly faded out of life a  few months beforo.  Possessing a sweet and well-troinud  voico   and   a talent for acting,     the  girl obtained an engagement in a  company touring a musical com.-dy,  and had been promised a good part  "in tho noxt plocc. Spurrier married  tho orphan girl, and for a couplo of  years thoy had been ideally happy.  Thon the blow fell.  A- woll-drossod, gentlemanly man  had called upon Spurrier at his club.  Ho coolly introduce himself as Elsa's  father.  "Sly lato wife," ho said, "ot whoso  death, by tho way, I'vo only just  heard, clio.se for years to represent  horself as a widow. She was a narrow-minded woman, and disapproved  of tho way in which I obtain my  living. She married mo under tho  impression that 1 was n man of independent means, and it was only  after a couplo of years that sho  found out���������sho was nnturally stupid,  poor thing! I understand that my  daughters havo been told that their  fnthor was u doctor. So I am, in a  way. I prevent young fools from  killing themselves with dissipation  by taking their money away irom  them. In this way I havo saved  many lives."  Ho laughed ovily; but his mirth was  not shared by the white-lipped mini  beforo him.  "Then my wife's father,"- said  Spurrier hoarsely,  "is���������is a -"  "Say 'soldier of fortuno.' Tho  other word is ugly," broke in lhe  othor. "Yes, I am Hart Brooking,  your fathor-in-law."  "And one of tho most notorious  crooks in London," said Spilrrior, between  his tooth.  To keep this horrible thing from  his gentle, clinging littlo wifo was  Spurrier's only thought.  "To learn that hor father is a  common swindler!" ho thought desperately. "It -would kill her���������my  littlo flower!"  These,'then, were the events that  led up to tho conversation in Hyde  Park that bright May morning.  III.  Spurrier dined alone, with his wito  that evening, trying to talk cheerfully, as usual. Sometimes, when  when thoy woro alone, : Elsa would  smoke a scented cigarette; with him  after dinner; but this night she  wanted to try some now music, so  vanished to the drawing-room. Tho  sound of the piano and his wife's  fresh young voice camo to Spurrier's  curs as he sat moodily over his  cigar.  Ho took out his revolver, and  laid it on tho table. It gleamed bluo  and sinister in tho glow of this 'electric light. It clashed horribly with  the flowers and dainty drapery���������this instrument of blood  and       death. A      bullet       from  that gleaming mu/.zlc had crashed  through tho skull of Ba Khim, tho  Burmese dacoit, whon Spurrier took  and burnt tho bandit's village,' and!  killed or cuptured^ his fierce followers.  Spurrier looked at lho revolver...  Ho did not notico thnt the* singing  had ceased. Presently ho drew a  deep breath, and began talking to  himself, as the most self-contained  people .will when iu great mental distress.  "Not that way, Paul, my,boy. It's  hardly the decent thing. Mustn't  leave tho littlo missus to faco it  alone, you know, old chap."  Tho door opened, but the troubled  man did not notico this.  'Taiil!"  Two soft arms, clutched -him'" ft (.in  behind, a breathless, terrified voico  whispered his namo.  "Not you, too, Paul! First my  father���������then  you!"  His wifo was clinging lo him, hor  great, violet eyes wido with terror.  Sho trembled violently, and repeated  his name, with little gasps and catch-  ings of the breath.  "Paul, don't be i-o cruel. My  darling, I know it would serve me  right for deceiving'you us I did. But  don't do it, Paul. I couldn't "bear  it.   Forgive me!"  ' Wliat' did those Wild words mean?  "I am 'wading "in deep waters,"  thought Paul.  "Dear, my lovo for you made- me  deceive you," she' murmured- presentr  ly. "I couldn't bear to givo you up,  and I knew how proud you were., I  thought you would' leave mo if you  know that my father died by his own  hand, dishonored."  Your_fathcr_dead?l_  I told.you he was a doctor. Oh,  Paul, do forgive me! He was really  a racing-man, a professional backer  of horses, you know. He got mixed  up with a'bad set, and they robbed  him right and loft. Then, ono day"  ���������hor voico sank to a whisper, and  Spurrier hold his-breath as he listened���������"when ho found that he owed  more money than ho could possibly  pay, he���������oh, poor father!���������he shot  himself!"  Suddenly sho raised her. head, hnd  looked into her husband's oyos. She  spoko with suppressed passion, that  was frightful in so fragile a creature.  "Paul, I shall always regard thoso  wicked inon as the murderers of my  poor father. They ought to be hanged. And one of- them I could kill  with my own liands���������tho chief cf thc  gang,   tho   arch-swindler!"  A vivid light broke in on , Spurrier's brain.  "His name?" ho demanded, with  passion equal to. his wife's. "I want  to know his name!"  "Ho callod himsolf Hart Brooking,"   she  said  simply.  A telegram summoned- Captain  Brooking to���������'- tho Spurriers' house  next"morning. Ho looked furtive and  ill at case as .thc was ushered into  the little library where. Paul was  sealed. Ho had never boon to tho  houso before, and was. rUconcorted  by a move which ho could not understand.  "Now, you blackmailing hound," |  began Pnul, "if you look through j  that window into the conservatory,  you will seo my - wife. You aro no  1 moro' hcr fa ther.than tho hall-porter  at my club is.

Says  He  Saw   or  Heard No    Ex-  ��������� plosion���������How  Fotir  Men  Were Rescued.  Tho Plymouth trawler Clianticleor,  tho crew of which rescued the four  survivors of tho recent submarino  disaster, has returned from her fishing cruise, having been" absent since  tlu work of rescue was so admirably  carried out. The crow consists of  the muster, Richard Johns, and two  deck hands, Ktlwiud Knox and  James Phillips. In nn interview ut  Plymouth wilh a representative ot  lho London Standard the muster  gave his account of tho disaster, lt  contains much that is both new and  striking.  "IVhcB I first saw tho submarine1-*,"'  said Mr. Johns, "lhe two of them  wer>s following tho torpedo boat In a  line on end, tho threo vessels being  ahout a hundred fathoms apart. How  fust they were going 1 shouldn't liko  to say, but it was certainly at a  high rate of speed. Tho torpedo boat  was kicking up a white smother  under her counter, and tho submarines wero tearing through it in a  perfect sluice of foam.  "When I first took notice of these  craft they wero heading away from  us, but very soon after this thoy  look a long, sweeping curve, and  camo bi-arinu. down directly toward  us, The torpedo boat went across  our bows, and so did the first submarine, which had the figures "A 7"  painted on hcr topside. But Wo wore  going, through tho water all the time  ourselves, and I reckoned lhat if the  second submarine tried to cross us  in this fashion she would bc cutting  it  RATHER TOO  FINK.  I was following the rule of the road  by merely ! holding steadily to my  own course. Thoro wero people on  top of lho couo or tower ot each  submarine, and 1: allowed they had  tlioir oyos open au<I knew what they  were about.  "There was a Lieutenant on the  cone of this stcrnmost submarine.  No. A 8., I could spot him, by tho  two gold rings ro.iind his cuff. I ..tako  it that ho saw he could not ' cross  our bows, and decidod to change direction so as to pass under our  stern. Anyhow, h'o called something  down below. Theso boats, you must  know, are steered by a wheel placed  down closo under lho conning tower  The helmsman cannot seo whoro ho  is going, but can only obey instructions. The craft was so closo to  us" at this moment that we could  plninly hear the quick champing-.-' of  her motor and the noise of, tho  water parted by tho thrust of hur  hidden  |';ow.  -"Wo three men, wiio saw lho accident happen under. oJr very noses,  are all agreed us to exactly how it,  came about. 1 he submarine was  going vory fast, as I have told you.  She looked well trimmed, and was  going along on a level keel, though  perhaps just a littlo deep, which I  am told wa.s duo to her carryina. a  doublo crew. When the Lieutenant  shouted below to change course���������so  as to clear our vessel, as 1 allow���������  thc man at. tlio J- wheel must; have  spun his helm hard over. The boat  came curving round in u.' hiss of  white froth, and beyan instantly to  heel over. You must! have noticed  that if thc helm of a steam launch  or any'h'igli speed, small craft is suddenly jammed over, it will throw  her broaid on her side. I have sov-  oral times seen naval- picket boats  almost capsi/ed in Plymouth Sound  by thi.s same cause.  "Well, as I sa:>; the -* submarine  came swerving round in a way that  brought my .heartAinto"-my throat.  The Lieutenant saw what was going  to happen; never a doubt of it. 1  heard him roar out "in a startled  voice, 'B-*"-���������n it, man, what are you  doing? .You'll" have us all over!'  Then, a second later, a voice -. that,  sounded as shrill as a woman's,  shrieked out,   ���������^'OCTf-silE'S-GONE!'   "Tho submarine rolled- right ovor,  until her cone was flat on tho water,  and.her bow rose up till wc could  see the stem. The four, men were  simply flung o!T her-dock as she went  rearing on; then lliere came: a  strange, sobbing sound, and all of a  sudden -she hatl vanished". *',*'��������� You may  believe that every word I am tolling  you is Heaven's truth when I sny  that the submarine was. no moro  than fifteen yards ;'away, from our  port quarter, when 'sho...disappeared.

"Our punt, a great heavy boat 10  foot ..long, , and weighing three-quarters of a ton,'if an ounce,-: lay on ,hor  bilge along th'c'fore part of thedeck,  upagainst tho bulwark. To havo  unshipped the gangway ancl slid her  out. in* our_usual fashion would .have  meant timo.' I dronped the helm,  and ran forward, crying out to my  mates, who wore silent and pale as  death, 'Out boat ! to save life, for  God's sake!' . However wo did it I  shall never understand to my dying  day. We n\ust have had the strength  of giants given us for the occasion.  But in loss time than it takes me  to tell you about it we had shouldered up that heavy punt until her keel  rested on thc bulwark rail, and then  ran her sheer overboard.- Wo wero  well nigh being in too much hurry,  for  nobody thought of making     her  from hi.s whito lips,  as his oyos  fell  on  their well-known faces.

Parisian Milliner's Apprentice and  tho Jailer Eloped  Together.  A week or two ago a woman was  arrested in Brooklyn on a chargo of  bigamy. Sho was young, pretty, and  charming, it is snid, and slui usod  her attributes to sucli purpose lhat  sho escaped from custody by doping  with tho Jailor who had cliar-.vo of  hcr cell and was responsible for her  detention. And   thus  another    ro  mance lias been added to thu history  of tho New York police forco already  well slocked with romance... Hi:',  tho caso does not ereule a precedent,  sinco it was anticipated somo years  ngo by thu lovo-story of a Parisian  milliner's  appi.ritice,  Lula  Lachncui.  In consutjuonco of the frequent disappearance of sundries used in thu  business where Milo. Luchnccl was  employed, and of complaints from  customers of being robbed, a young  detcctivo arrested lho apprentice on  suspicion, and on searching . tho  rooms whero she lodged.ho discovered a portion, of tho stolen property.  Thore was some difiiculty in tho  case, however, and tho young woman  remained in custody tliree or four  weeks beforo it was settled; and during that period-a jailor, saw , much  of her, frequently having to conduct  her to and from lho prison wliero .she  was lodged und the office of tho Commissary.  Eventually, however, slio was ordered to undergo nine months' imprisonment. But on tho 'way "from  th'o court to the prison sho.and tho  jailer  CONTRIVED TO  DISAPPEAR.  and it was .subsequently made clear  that-they ..had.-"planned-to elopo. together in the event of her being sentenced to!.-.imprisonment,', which he  had endeavored to prevent by appealing to tho prosecutors not to ; proceed with tho case, and ottering himself to make! full compensation for  tho goods which had not been recovered. Failing in this, captor and  captive eloped. - Whether the authorities really exerted themselves to  bring tho lovers to justice, or tho romantic episode appcnled too strongly  io .their... sentiments, 'it1'-is ..manifestly  impossible to say. But no sorrowful  sequel:spoils the story.  It was a French dotoctivo whom  lho charms of an alleged murderess  captivated, aind, strangely enough, in  this case also tho .woman*was a  milliner's apprentice. She was accused of murdering her lover, who  had tlescrtod . her, and tho detective  who was destined to fall a victim to  lier charms-was ono of the first to  suspect -he.r,.of the crime' The ^evidence against the prisoner, howevor,  though strongly presumptive of hor  guilt, was purely circumstantial; and  there is lilllo, doubt that in thc absence of a strong motive for the  crime the woman would have escaped  suspicion. On thc other hand, the  defence offered was weak, and up to  the very hour of th'o trial it- was  more, than, usually -uncertain whether  lho woman would bc judged guilty or  not.  Very early after arresting his prisoner, tt seems, tho detective fell in  love with hor. and so strongly did  he urge;to the authorities that she  was innocent tliat lhe case was taken  out of his hands, as it was felt that  he was too prejudiced to deal wilh  it properly. Thereupon ho resigned  and  devoted . himself  to  WORKING  UP Tlllil DEFENCE.  But h'o met with littlo success, and  it was generally..felt that.tho accused owed hor acquittal moro to  hor attractive personality than to  anything else. A fow weeks laler she  married tho cx-dctectivc, and then  there were not wanting folks to hint  that the detective had, in his infatuation, suppressed bits of ovidenco. -But this- wns absolutely disproved" when a well-known criminal  confessed to the crime. ��������� In the meantime, however, th'o ; suspect and the  detective had settled down in Canada  and had almost succeeded in'��������� forgetting- tlip-tragic-opisode-which-had so  strangely made thom  man  and  wife.  Languishing in a prison at Hion,  in'France, is a Belgian1 woman who,  ln tho course of a remarkable .career  as an .artistic, swindler, hus fallen into lho"' hands of Continental polico  forces four times. It is asserted that  sh'o is neither good-looking nor attractive, but she possesses, a remarkable power to captivato men. which  sho has used to such ninrked effect  that' '.on threo occasions she. has  escaped from custody with tho connivance of lier custodinns. On ono  occasion sho eloped with tho policeman who wris conducting hcr to trial  afterwards taking tho earliest opportunity of slipping away from him,  leaving him to explain the affair to  his superiors in tlio most probable  way ho could.  Sho then enjoyed somo years of  liberty. When next sho was arrested  sho boasted that no prison guarded  by men was strong enough to hold  lior, and in consequence of this two  jailors were specially detailed to seo  she did not escaiHs, and to protect  each oilier against hcr wiles. ' But  slio escaped with the connivunee of  both of thcm.    She was, however,  QUICKLY RIS-AURESTKI),  when hor custody was entrusted to  two womon, thc result being that  now" she is not able to use her fascinations .with nny elTect on her  jailers.  Probably the most pathetic case'on  record, however, in wliich a jailer  full in love wilh, and ultimately  married, a prlspncr is related of a  former turnkey, who now occupies a  responsible position in one of His  Majesty's prisons in Ireland.. Somo  six years ago a young girl was  forced by stress of poverty to steal.  She was detected, tried, and sentenced to three months' imprsonrment. At  the end of that time she.was ro-  I leased, and, having no friends or te-  'lativcs to whom she could apply -for  assistance, committed another theft,  in order, as shc informed tho magistrate at tho second trial, that she  might escape starvation by going to  prison again.  The magistrate, a humane man,  gavo tlio prisoner a nominal sentence,  and issued instructions that tho caso  should bo brought under tho notice  ot th'o court missionary. Tho latter  was considerably surprised the following day to roceivo a visit from  a warder who had charge of prisoners in tho dock, and who confessed  that ho had beon so moved by the  distress of tlio girl and admired hor  physical charms to such an extent  that he would willingly marry iivr if  sho would consent at tho' cxpira/ion  of lier sentence.  Naturally, tho missionary advised  the warder to consider tho matter  for a whilo longer, and to make no  hasty proposal on account of hi-s  pity for tho prisoner. In tho meantime'he ottered to see that the girl  wa.s supplied with" food, clothes, and  work. Th'o warder did not change  his mind, however, ami tlio upshot of  tho affair wa.s that h'o proposed nt  tho end of six month's ami duly led  to thn altar ono who had been moro  sinned against  than sinning.

Treat him.woll so long as he is in  your employ, and. if ho does not do-  servo good treatment or respond to  it, do not keep him. A good hiicd  man will appreciate good usago and  kind favors, and pay for them by the  extra amount and bettor quality of  services. It is courtesy to treat all  mon decently. In the case of your  hired man, it is also policy and economy. Be liberal with him, not only  at tho tablo, but givo him occasionally a spare day for amusement end  recreation.

Nothing but a great naval battlo  in which the British navy proved  its superiority over a worthy enemy  could do more to raise tlio prostign  of our fleets than Togo's great defeat of Rojestvensky, says the London Mirror.

And as the reports of thc battlo  continue to como in they cmplmsiz.  .strongly tho fact that the inferiority of tho Russian ships liad much  to do with tho ease of his victory.  Russian armour was pierced by  ���������lalunc-SQ shells which, nominally, it  should h'avo resisted. Russian guns  were useless at tho rango at which  Japanese shells were, working havoc.  Russian crews were decimated when  Japan's losses were, comparatively ,  speaking,   insignificant.  CAPTUR12D FROM CHINA.  Of the Japanese battleships; only  one i.s not of."

Of tho others, tho great tirrret-  ship Asahi, of 15,200 tons, : which  shares' With tho Mikasa the distinction of being the largest vessel in  Japan's navy, was built at Clydebank. Tho battleship Mikasa, built  at Barrow, and launched in 1902, is  typical of our own first-class battleships.  ThV.Fugi, of 12,320 tons, .was built  on the Thames.

We find in Eastern Canadian daily  papers  advertisements of speculating  chances  iu  Cuba, Mexico, and  other  God-forsaken places; and as a matter  of fact many Canadians see fit to invest  in  these   outside  propositions;  ���������whether   profitably or otherwise, it is  not for us at present to say.   We believe, however, that in most cases it is  only  the*- influence  portrayed by the  old  adage���������"distance  lends enchantment to the view,"���������that leads them.  Canadians, particularly in the eastern  provinces, do not appreciate the great  chances" that  present  themselves in  the development of tbe prairie provinces   and  British Columbia.   It is not  agricultural  resources  alone tbat we  have.   There are boundless opportunities  for  the   manufacturer,   and  in  years to come those who are holding  back will  regret that they delayed.  The  lakes  and   streams   of Western  Canada contain power that can hardly  be computed, and  fortunate  will be  the men who take the initiative to put  it into harness.   The market of Manitoba and the Territories is a large one  today, and  it  is  growing so rapidly  that  the  statistical   figures    of  one  month  are almost out  of date the  following  month.     Then, there  are  limitless rich mineral areas that afford  a great and valuable scope to the cap-  italistT^nd~*^^annot==iS=ith"Stsit"if"  necessary for any of our fellow citizens  to look to  other countries for  paying investments.   What the undeveloped parts of this country require  is  men  of courage,   enterprise, and  business calibre to take the initiative,  and  if  our  own wealthy Canadians  ���������were only patriotic enough to lead the  ���������way, they would not only profit by it,  but they would have the satisfaction  of doing well in the improvement of  their native country.     Were Canadians to have no other inducement lo  stay  at  home  than the healthy and  ���������wholesome climate we enjoy, it ought  to  be  sufficient  to  keep them from  going to  and becoming interested in  regions  that are very unhealthy and  only  fit for  the   natives;   countries  -where both natives and outsiders die  by the hundreds from fevers and other  obnoxious diseases and pestilences.���������  Winnipeg Commercial.  tax collectors are empowered to assess  thc values themselves and levy the  tax accordingly. It is estimated that  there will be raised by this means a  revenue of $400,000."  We"are informed that there aie no  notices being sent out by the assessor  to the holders of licenses of timber  lands, because timber lands held under lease or license are exempt from  taxation under the act. What is  being done, however, is that a  form is being sent out to the  owners of timber land to be filled up  in accordance with the Act, showing  the description, value and other particulars of the land they claim to be  timber land, so that the assessor may  know whether to assess it 2 per cent.  as timber land or 4 per cent as wild  land. This form is being sent out in  the ordinary course of the assessor's  duties in preparation of the roll for  1900, and none are sent to the lessees  or licencees of provincial timber lands.  A further misconception seems to  liave arisen as to the amount of revenue expected to be derived from this  source. It will be remembered that  the Minister of Finance in his last  Budget estimated that the entire revenue from her royalties, etc., would  be $400,000. The revenue from the 2  per cent tax upon wild land assessed  as tijnber land, which it must be understood only refers to crown-granted  land, will not amount to one-tenth of  tbat sum. The change in the law last  session, in reducing the tax on wild  lands held as timber land from 4 to 2  per cent, was made in accordance with  the recommendations of the Assessment Commission, and the notices in  question are simply part of the machinery of the amended Act in operation.���������Colonist.

(itt    A despatch from Vancouver, which  appeared in the paper last week, with  respect to the collection of certain  taxes upon timber, is wholly misleading. It was stated that "Notices are  being issued calling upon the holders  of all timber under license to furnish  returns as to the value set upon their  timber to the tax collectors and  assessors.    Failing such  returns the  -Thoroughbreds^for^Exhibition.  "Sir" William Ladner, the veteran  breeder of thoroughbred cattle in the  Delta, and a well known old-timer of  British Columbia, has the honor of  being the first exhibitor to make entry  in the live stock show of the 1905 Dominion Fair.  Since the announcement that the  great national exhibition would be  held in New Westminster this fall Sir  William has been very active in stirring up interest in the exhibits and  now he has set the pace for stock  breeders by entering 41 head of Shorthorns.  Sir William, who is vice-president  of the Eoyal Agricultural and Industrial Society, under whose auspices  the big exhibition is being held, will  ride one of his finest looking horses on  the grounds, and will be a picturesque  figure among the notables who will be  seen in New Westminster, during the  fair.  have charge of the party. He will be  assisted by Phillip Argait, M. E., of  Denver, who in turn - will be assisted  by A. C. Gaide. The three gentlemen  named will carry out the field work  and Henry E. Wood, Denver, will  perform the concentration experiments.  The members of the party will probably meet in Nelson, B. C, about  September 1. They will be engaged  in field work, it is expected about two  months, afterwards Prof. Ingalls will  prepare and present his report to Dr.  Hammel. He is regarded as the greatest authority on zinc in America and  his opinion will be accepted without  question in mining circles generally.  The investigation into the zinc deposit has been brought about by the  discovery of the ore in large quantities during the development of the  silver lead mines.  Respect for the Dead.  The other day, says a correspondent  to one of our exchanges, as a funeral  was passing down the streets of our  town, a man who was driving a cart  stopped till the funeral bad passed  and as the hearse went by reverently  lifted  his   hat.     One felt a feeling of  that a big purse;,is offered for an international Indian war canoe race and  that a number, of the strongest and  fastest red men of. the state of Washington will journey to the Fraser  river with a determination to demonstrate their physical superiority over  th-; British Columbia braves. New  war canoes are* being built by the  tribes who have fast crews and every  man who is to handle a paddle is now  in active rrainingffor the>" greatest  contest the Indians 'of far' western  Canada have ever been privileged to  enter. ,*  PATENTS  I PROMPTLY SECURED!  respect for that man ancTwishSTit  was a common custom in Ontario.  Butit is not; that is, it?s not universal.  Apparently the boys are not taught to  do so, and the men do not take the  trouble. In some towns you will see  every man lift his hat as a funeral  passes. It doesn't matter who it is;  he doesn't know. He only knows it is  some brother mortal who has gone to  his long home, and out of ac instinctive pity and respect for the departed  he honors himself by honoring the  dead. Would not a word from our  ministers and Sunday school superintendents and parents help our boys  and young men to begin a custom  which at the very lowest estimate is  a beautiful estimate to our common  humanity.

Coal Miners of the Pass Ready  to Fight to the Bitter End-  Agreement Recently Made  Broken by Company.  Fernie, Aug. 21.���������A strike has been  declared and the men of the Crow's  Nest Puss in Fernie, Michel and Carbonado will do no more work until  their demands are complied with.  Mass meetings have been held and a  strike has been called with unanimity.  The chief points of contention are  the wages of the blacksmiths and the  movement of McGinty although there  are several other clauses in the agreement which was recently concluded  between employer and employees  which the men claim have been bi-ok-  _en. The men repudiate the arbitration clause, saying that a breach of  - one article constitutes a breach of all.  The miners are of the opinion that the  company will lose some valuable contracts, which neighboring mines are  capable of filling, should they fail to  yield to the men.  In conformity with the call of president F. H. Sherman of the district  union No". 18, U. M." W. of A., a mass  meeting of the coal miners and uther  employees of the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal Co., who are members of the  union and who work in Fernie or Coal  Creek, was held on Saturday.  F. H. Sherman said that he little  thought when, a short time back, they  were discussing the agreement in this  hall, that they would be compelled to  meet there again in so short a time on  account of a breach of the agreement  on the part of the Coal company. The  agri ement was not in its provisiou.  everything that could be wished for  as far as the interests of the membeis  of the union were concerned but they  had accepted it in good faith,with the  full, intsnt of living up to it and for  ���������the sake of peace.        .- "'. \  They expected the company to do  the same. He knew that the members of the union would be anxious to  know what had been done and it _ as  for .that purpose he had asked them  to cease work "and ]hold~a inuss meet-  - ing. He had. to complain not of one  breach" of the agreement but of'many,  and now being compelled by the continued breach of the agreement by the  company to take some action, ."he  hoped action on the miners part would  not cease until the company were  compelled to live up to what they bail  signed their names to.

"Tes," remarked a .country 'merchant, "I certainly have a snap. The  Houses send dunners every month  and draw on me at sight; but if I send  a bill to a farmer he comes in swearing mad and quits trading at my  store. While I am hard up for money,  many of these who are owing me aie  -sending.cash in_ advance tojmail order  houses. If I contribute money to any  cause, people say I nm bidding for  trade. If I don't they say I'm a hog.  Every day-I am expected to dig up  for everything lhat comes along, from  a raffle ticket lo the church fund by  people who claim I ought to do this  because they do' part of their trading  here, but my. friend Timothy Eaton  neither buys tickets nor helps the  church fund, and yet, gets the cash in  advance business; and if I were to circulate a subscription paper among the  wholesale houses where we trade I  -would get the laugh proper. If I sell  a pair of pants I must treat the farmer  candy and cigars; if I buy a load of  potatoes I must do the same. Customers who are able to pay hang on  to their money while I pay 10 per cent  at the bank to get ready cash. I have  a big business during hard limes and  poor crops from people who are willing to trade with me providing I can  duplicate catalogue house prices and  wait until after harvest for money.  My.scales weigh too. much when I 6ell  sugar and too little when I buy butter.  I am a thief, a liar and a grafter. If  I smile I am a soft soapy hypocrite, if  I don't I am a gruuip. Yes, certainly  this is a snap." And he looked over  $10,000 worth of accounts, all good,  and wonders how he could raise $350  to pay a sight draft due to-morrow.���������  Exchange,  JJAEVEY, M'CARTER & PINKHAM  Barristers, Solicitors, Etc.

The Gypsy's Saerifiee  A   SECRET   REVEALED  CHAPTER XXXIV.  Sho went swiftly, with tho shawl  druwn closely around her heud, along  the drive,  its wonted smoothness cut  ^t^n^intr^^1^     Sh.   knows,     everybody  look,  down  upas  paused  a    moment   or   two   to  gain  gut monoy. I would have given liim  all I could get; Juck would huve  given him anything ro spare mo. I  know tliat but it is all over now;  the   blow    hns     fallen.       F.ver.vbody  moment or  breath and looked around her. As  she did so, the clock of the Towers  struck fivo. In another hour or two,  she reflected, workmen would bo  about and she would be seen. Sho  must hasten on, but whither? At  that moment if any idea at all found  room in hor bewildered mind it was  that of going to her own people. If  she walked long enough, if she could  only manage to avoid recognition,  she must iu time come across a band  of gypsies. Whether they belonged to  lier own tribe or not, sho knew that  they would succor, and, if necessary,  hido her. ,  She hurried on and for a time,  supported by tho excitement, was  not sensiblo of fatigue; but presently  she became conscious of it. Hcr foot  seemed to bc of lead, her head ached,  hcr eyes burned. She know that sho  could not go much further. Suddenly she found herself oil the road and  upon the grass. She looked around  confusedly and saw she was on  Gorse- Common. As she looked a  faint light attracted her attention,  and sho realized, after a mornonfor  two, that it was from Martha Hooper's cottage. It seemed like a  beacon���������not to warn but to welcome;  and it occurred to hcr that she  might rest there for a short time,  perhaps until tho night had fallon  again. Tho woman had evidently  known what sorrow was, and would  sympathize with her and hide hor.  It was truo that there was some  ' secret understanding between hcr and  the countess, but Madge rollectod  that she could show Martha Hooper  thnt she, Madge, was flying from  Monk Towers to savo tho countess  from further humiliation, and that  would induce Mrs. Hooper to help  her ia her flight.  She mado hcr way across tho common  and,  nearly  fainting  now    with  tho     exhaustion    production   by     tho  reaction   of    excitement,-    she leaned  against .the door and knocked.  Two  or thrco_ minutes passed���������min-  " utes that seemed an  age  to Madgo���������  and  sho   was   asking  herself  whether  she    should    have strength  to     keep  from     falling    upon  tho  step,     when  - Martha .Hooper's nervous voice   was  heard from  behind  tho  door*.  "V.'ho is it? ls It you���������Jako?" sho  asked in trembling tones.  Madge  moistened  her  lips;   she  was  almost incapable of speech.  "It  is  I,"   she at  last.  Mrs. Hooper opened the door,  thon  shrank    back  and  uttered  a  cry     of  alarm.  "Who is it?" sho panted. "I���������I  don't  know  you!    I've     nothing     to  give ���������"  "It  is I���������Mrs.  Landon!"  said  poor  Madge.    "Let me como  in,  I "  Martha Hooper uttered a cry of  astonishment and nervous apprehension, and, drawing her in, closed  the   door.  "ft is you, ma'am!" she gasped as  Madge sank onto a chair. "Oh what  has happened'? Why arc you dressed  like that?   Vou are ill."  "I���������I am tired," said Madge faintly-  Martha Hooper ran for a glass of  water, and brought it to her and  stood by as Madge drank it, wringing her hands.  "What has happened, ma'am?" she  repeated. "Has���������has he been thero?  Oh tell me quick! My poor heart!"'  and she put her hands to her'side. -  "I am in great trouble. Mrs. Hooper." said  Madge  faintly.    "I���������I have  -icft-the'-rowers;"-���������  ��������� =_=  "Left  the  Towers!   You!"     gaspod  Martha.    "Why have you done that?"  "I    don't   think   I   can  toll youi"  mo and him with scorn," she put her  hands  to her  faco and sighed.  Martha Hooper lookod straight  over Madge's head witK a strange  expression   on   hor  face.  "Did ho���������Jake���������come only to toll  thc grand peoplo all he knew about  you?" she asked in a dry Voice.  Madgo shook her head.  "I supposo so. I do not know. It  does not matter; it is all ovcr! All!  I can never go back. There is only  one thing for mo to do; to hido myself away from���������from Jack till I die.  I must go back to my own peoplo."  Sho paused a moment, then raised  hor eyes to tho whito face in front  of her. "Will you help mo? You  have known sorrow and trouble  have you not?"  "Ay!" camo from Martha's dry  lips.  "And you will help me who am in  sucli bitter need?" pleaded Madgo.  "I can only rest until���������until tho  evening. If you will hido me somewhere and keep me hidden from any  one���������any ono���������who may como! Will  you do .that?" She put out her  hand and touched Martha Hooper's gently, imploringly, for thc woman seemed to have become lost in  a kind of reverie  Martha started slightly, and looked down at the .white, lovely faco  with its groat eyes full of misery  and despair.  "Yes," she said with a long breath  "I  will help  you!"  Madgo raised lier eyes gratefully  and with a dim surprise, for a chango  seemed to have como ovor Martha  if Madgo's appeal had aroused a  Hooper's face and voico; it was as  if Madge's appeal had aroused. a  touch of resolution and an indication of strength in the nervous, foar-  burdenod  woman.  ,"Como upstairs with mo sho said  in tho now and firmer tone. "You  will be ill if you do not get rest. Ho  not bo afraid, ma'am,..yoii will bc  quite safo here. 1 will protect you."  "If you will hide me till night,"  said  Madge.   - ���������    . ,  Mrs. Hooper, put her arm around  tho slight girlish figuro and helped  Madge up tho narrow stairs to a  small room. It was scrupulously  neat-and clean, liko Martha Hooper  horself. and Madge looked around  with a weary  sigh of relief.  Martha Hoopor helped her to undress; and such help was necessary,  for poor Madgo was almost incapable of lifting her hand. 'And whon  Madge dropped her tired and aching,  head on thc pillow, Martha Hooper  sat beside her and held her hand.  "You havo been v_ry good to mc."  Madge murmured, with her eyes  closed. "You will not givo me up���������  to   any   ono?"  "No." said Martha Hooper. "You  are   safe    hero.    No   one  shall    harm  I should have thought you would  have felt too much liko a beaten  cur. Hut you don't know what  shame  is,   do  you?"  "Yes, I do���������when I look at you,"  said Uoyce grimly. "Hut I know  what you mean, nnd I'll tell you���������if  you havo sonso onough to understand���������what I am going to  do."  "I���������1 can understand," suid Seymour; "thoro's only ono thing you  cun do. All the���������county's laughing  nt us. At us, do you hear���������not you  alone? You'vo brought ruin und  disgrace   on   our     name.       You and  your  gypsy "  "Stop!" suit! Royce, liis face whito  his eyes blu/.ing ominously. Then ho  remembered that he wns dealing with  a drunken man and Hung him from  him. "There, go to bod. Wait!" ho  said, as Seymour, scowling- at him  under his swollen lids, moved to tho  door. "You will not seo me again;  try and remember theso, my last  words to you: You aro a fraud,  Seymour! You talk of tho shame and  disgrace I have brought upon tho old  namo! You forget that tho peoplo  who ,have just gone have something  elso to talk about as well us tho  poor wretch's presenco here to-night!  You forget your porforma'neo in tho  card-room, and tho man's assertion  that he had seen you in a gambling  den in London."  "lt   is   a   lie.      Ho  was     'drunk!  stammered Seymour,  glaring at    the  stern faco malignantly.  "No, it was truth. I know it, fool  it," responded Royce grimly. "Tako  my word of warning, Seymour. You  aro on the road to ruin. Draw back  whilo there's time, or you will bring  a deeper shame and disgrace upon  tho house than any I���������or my dear  wife���������have dono! Don't speak! It's  useless to lie to mo about it. I���������we  are going from tho Towers in an  hour or two, anil forever!"-  "It was time."  "Yes," said Royco sadly. "We  should never havo come. But onough  of that. 1 want to speak about  yourself. My mother and Ireno will  be left in your care."  "My futuro wifo. What has your  highness to  sny  nbout  her,  pray?"  "God save her from that! No,  Ireno will never bo your wifo, Seymour."  "Wo r.hall sco. And now you'vo  finished your sermon, my immaculate  brother, I'll go to bed. If you can  manage to leave the house before I  am up, I shall bo grateful for my  own sake and for my future wife's!  Goo���������good-night!"  Ho got out of tho room, and Royco  heard     him   stumble    up   the  stairs.  Itoyco  opened   tho  window  to  purify  thc room,   and   stepped  out  on  terrace.  FEEDING FOR A RECORD.  In a letter to the London (Eng.)  Gazette, au Knglish dairyman gives  his method of feoiiinji cows during  a public tost, with advice a.. to  treatment, which has the merit of  being simple and easily followed:  "The production of milk having become thu staple industry of furuning,  tho brooding of good dairy cows  should roceivo encouragement and  liberal support, und there is no-,  thing th'at will further tho object  moro than carefully conducted milking trials and butter tests. It i is  impossible to select tho best dairy  cow from a fair-sized class without  testing thom.  "The feeding for quantity and quality of milk needs great skill ami attention, although there is nothing  moro written upon in our live stock  ami agricultural papers than tho rations for dairy cows, and nothing  more variable than their formula.  Thero is a difficulty to be mot at  this time of year that seoms to have  escaped attention, that is tho difficulty of obtaining suilablo green  food at our summer shows for cows  th'at have been allowed to grass  previous to thoir being exhibited. Th'o  green food found by the societies  vuries from luconio and sainfoin to  mixed clover and grasses, often so  much fermented by being cut too  long that thc cattlo will uot cat it.  The safest courso to ensure success is  not to feed on green food at all,  but to depend only on such foods as  can bo taken with you, thereby  avoiding thc possibility of your cow  or cows being thrown oil th'eir food  just when you want thcm at their  best.  "As regards cakes and meals, tlioro  is probably nothing to equal or surpass one part of best linseed cako  to three parts of decorticated cotton  cake, with good hay and waler ad  libitum. Commence      with      four  pounds' of the mixed cakes per day,  increasing to eight or twelve pounds  per day, according to thc sizo and  appetite of your cow, keeping a  watchful eyo so as not to sicken or  purge; the cakes being rather hard,  requires good mastication, and being  greatly relished,  causes a free flow of  The Most for Your Money and  the Best for Your Health  saliva,   rcralerine,  digestion   easy  and  the  assimilation perfect.

Complexity  of Thoir Duties Delay  Poison Trials.  In a caso recently tried in London,  England, the prisoner was kept under lock and key for four weeks,  awaiting thc result of the doctor's  analysis. This long delay always occurs in poisoning cases, and to thoss  who do not understand the complexity of a post mortem it seems very  unfair. But the separation of a liv-  c*.*, stomach, and othor organs is an <  extremely diflleult task. Perhaps  there is only a quantity equal in size  to a pinhcad, nnd this is distributed  throughout ten or .fifteen pounds >of  flesh, food, and bodily fluids.

Women's shoes arc made at home  and, "except in isolated cases' in  Shanghai, are nevcr.cxposcd for sale  in shops. This renvprk does not apply to the peculiar form of shoo  worn ��������� by Manchu women, which is  perched on a sort of small stilt. In  the north, during thc winter months,  the ordinary boot or shoe is often  wadded or lined with sheepskin, and  of late years reproductions bf Chinese boots and shoes in indiarubbcr  have been imported from the United  States ami Germany, and found  favor wilh Chinese at the Trcjxty  ports.  ��������� ���������   BRIDAL WREATHS.
