HOW TO   AVOID  THE GRIPFE.  A great many people have formed  the habit of alluding to every little  cold as nn "attack of grippe." Tt  sounds much more important, but  happily, it is often not true. Any  one who has once had a real attack  of grippe is in small danger of mistaking any lesser complaint for it.  It is true that it has many of thc  signs of the so-called cold in the  head, but added to these there is a  prostration, nn aching, a poisoning  of the whole system of which i>lain  influenza is fortunately not capable  Kvery year there i.s more or less  grippe, ranging from the really appalling epidemic of thirteen years  ago, when the old and the feeble succumbed in hundreds, to a limited  number of fairly light cases here and  there.  Much of the spreading of tha grippe  is by quite unnecessary contact. It  is only fair for grippe patients -to  isolate themselves for a few days  and consider themiclves contagious  objects. lYomiscocus kissing, which  is always foolishness, is a crime during a grippe epidemic. Thc patient  should stay in one room in thc care  of a physician until active symptoms  have  subsided.  Much can hc done to avoid this  dread disease in other ways than  ty shunning the sufferers. This is  not always feasible, anyhow, whilo  people ride in close cars and mix  with* th'eir fellows in restaurants,  shops and theatres, where the germ:  can be appropriated at any moment. The surest way of avoidance  is by keeping the system in good  condition. The grippe germ 3s just  like any other di.sease germ in,this:  ���������that it needs a weakened point for  its assault.  If people spend hours in close,  overheated places, and then faco the  keen outside air without proper protection in tlieir clothes or proper  precautions as to correct breathing,  they are already prepared for their  attack  of  grippe.  Wet feet are a most useful ally of  this trouble, and should never be  risked ��������� jn, young or old.. Most* persons have heard of the man who  wrote lo the Times that he had discovered that wet feet wero Uio sole  cause of influenza, antl was answered  by the man with two wooden legs  who had grippe five years in succession. Although too'*mucli stress can  hardly be placed on the importance  of warm, dry feet, the case is. unfortunately not quite so simple.  There are niany,ways in which grippe  ' can. acquire a Hold' if one is ready to  catch iti Strengthen your fortress  with a threefold wall���������eat right,  breathe right, .sleep right. Only so  shall disease'find you scatheless.  SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES.  ���������Several; years ago one of the old  school" physicians who han nevo- lost  a case of pneumonia where the patient was under 60, said that he attributed his success largely to the  timely use of soap poultices, which  were made by having tho soap very  hot, then thickening with' bran. In  these days, when so few, even among j  the farmers, make soft soap, a poultice nearly as good can be made by  using a weak lye," in place of the  soap. To make the lye, pour boiling water over wood ashes. At  mo.st drug stores an alkaline poultice can" be purchased ready prepared, which is similar to the soap poultices of former years. Tn cases of  extreme tenderness, cracker crumbs  can be used in place of the bran,  making it  far lighter.  Sometimes it is difficult to wring  cloths out of water sufficiently hot  to  attain   the  desired  result. One  way is to place the cloth to bo  wrung inside of a dry towel, and  then twist at the ends. A wringer  mny be used, but thc best is to uso  a steamer. If possible, have a  small oil stove near to the patient's  bed, and on it place a basin oi boiling water, and over this set the  _.��������������� tea n>ar.__The- first _ time, thccloths  will need to l;e wrung out of the  water, but after that, all that is  necessary is to place them in the  steamer.

They make tired, depressed, ailing  men, women and children bright, active and strong. Mrs. N. .Ferguson,  Ashlield, N.S., says: "For tho benefit it may bc to others I take much  pleasure in saying that I havo found  wonderful benefit from tlio use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. 'When I began  taking thoira I was so badly run  down that I could scarcely go about  the house. I was also troubled with  palpitation of the' heart and weak  spells, but the pills have fully restored mc and I am now enjoying  better health than I ever expected to  have again."  If you want to be healthy in spring  don't dose yourself with purgatives���������  they only weaken.���������they can't cure.  Don't experiment with' other so-called,  tonics.

It was seen on reference to  somo of tho contracts for purchase of  jam that they included a provision  that it should be supplied in tins  containing   one   pound   each.  AMOUNT OF LOSS.  "I, therefore, requested that information might be furnished as to tlie  terms of the contracts in these cases,  and as to the examination givon to  insure that full contract weights woro  delivered; also whether any other  cases of short weight had been  brought to notico, and, linally,  whether the deficiency was investigated at the time by a court of inquiry  and reported to the Treasury.

Mndge, when she awoke the next  morning, felt very much as Aladdin  must have felt on the lirst morning  in his Wonderful Palace.  If Monk Towers wa.s imposing by  candlelight, it ������-as twice as impressive in  the sunshine.  Long before the dressing-bell had  rung, and Marion hud knocked at the  <loor, Madge was up and dressed,  looking out of the window of her  boudoir at the view wliich sho had  seen the night before in the moonlight.  As she gazed at it, drinking in its  beauty, she remembered the vision of  the countess stealing along the pnth,  and again she asked herself whether  tihe-ought not to tell Royce; but  she shrank from the disclosure for  many obvious reasons; not the least  being the 'possibility Hint she might  have been mistaken.  She chose the simplest of her morning frocks, a pretty sateen which  she had bought in London, und,  all unconscious of the exquisite picture she made, stood by the window  waiting for Royce, who wus singing  light-heartedly as he dressed in a the  adjoining  room.  A knock came to the door, and |  opening it she  found  Marion  o-itside.  The girl  looked surprised as seeing! good?  Wo believe  in  it,  ply as before.  Irene looked at the firo dreamily.  "I wonder if it is wicked to want  to  know  ono's future!"  she said.  "Wicked?" repeated Madge. "Is it  wicked? I don't know. Almost every  one wants to know. AU sorts of  people camo to me to tell their fortune."  "Tell me mine."  "Oh, no, no," she said. Then she  laughed. "But you do not believe  in it?   It is only for fun?"  "I won't promise to believe in it,"  snid Irene. "Yes,, it is only fun. Try  those rissoles, dear; the cook makes  them vcry well." And she put one  ou Madge's plate. Then sho held out  her hand again.  "I suppose I must cross it with  silver, mustn't I?" she said laughing.  "No, that is not necessary. We  tell  fortunes by the lines."  "What a beautiful hand!"  "It is-no smaller than yours,'.'  retorted Irene.  "Hut how white it is! Let me  sec."  Shu knit her brows and studied  lho lines on tho palm intently.  "Woll?" said Irene smiling.

'"Miss Irene sometimes has breakfast in her own room, ma'am," ox-  plained Marion.  "Oh, yes, yes!" said Madge at  once.    "When shall   I come?"  "Miss Tresylian is dressed, ma'am"  said Marion. "Shall I show you tho  way?"  "Please," said Madge, "for I feel  as if 1 should be lost iu this great  place."  Marion smiled, with demure respect  and Madge, after opening the door  of Roycc's dressing-room, and calling  to him-, "I am going to breakfast  with Irene!"   followed  the  girl.  They   went  a  little  way  down" the  corridor;  and Marion  opened  a    door  and- announced Madge.  ���������   Irene came  to  meet her.  "Dressed already, Madge!" sho  saitl. She herself, was in a teagown,  in which she looked like Yi lily enfolded by its leaves. "Come in," and  she drew her into the room-and kissed her. - .  Madge looked around. The room  was smaller than her own, but decorated and furnished in perfect taste.  There was a piano such as she had  in her own .room, and a well-filled  bookcase. A stand of flowers stood  in the Vf'indow and a pair of. .lava  -sparrows  twittered  in  a  cage.  "Vou look like a Juno rose, dear.  And yet that is not splendid enough  for you; a Japanese lily would be  better.''  "I don't know what a Japanese  lily is like," said Madge with a  smile.  "Jt is tall and graceful, with a  deep, rich, red blossom," said Irono.  "And though you have so littlo  crimson in your cheeks, vou aro like  it."  "And you are like the whito lily,"  said Madge, timidly, "and that is  prettier than any red ono."  "Sometimes I breakfast in my own  room, and I thought that perhaps  you would like to be quiet this morning.   You must still be tired "  "Tired! Why should I be? Ile-  cause of the journey yesterday? Why.  T sal comfortably in a first-class carriage all padded and cushioned. That  does not tiro me.

"To envy me!" snid Madge, with  expanding eyes. ,  'Yes,"--coiitinued" Irene.  "It must be so  delightful  to     live  so near to nature; to be always moving  on,   on;  to  bo, always  free.  ' But wo wer& not free. Wo had  Work to  do."  "Work! What work" did you do?"  askod Irene with a smile.  I made baskets," said Madge  simply. "And I looked after some  oi ihe children; and sometimes We  Mere at fairs, I. told fortunes.1. A  g.\psy is never idle." Irene had  been -moving about the room, ar-  langing flowers in a vast, and stirring the /ire that burned brightly in  the . modern-antique fireplace. She  tin ned with the poker still in her  hand. ���������"'���������'������������������  ' You  told fort'ines!    Can  yoii   tell  mine, Madgo?"  "Yes," replied Madge gravely.'  "Hut not really?"  said Irene,     the  smile on hor face.  "Really?'' said Madge. "I don't  know;. Some people think it is all  guess work  and  nonsense:  but  it    is  nol     Thero arc rules and signs "  She stopped, for I rone's maid had  entered with tho breakfast tray, and  the two girls ' remained silent while  she placed it on tho table, Madge  noticing the service of exquisite china  nnd oriental silver.  "You need not Wait, Lucy," said  Irene. "And there is milly something in fortune felling?" she said  whon  the  maid  hod  withdrawn,  "I���������don't know. I suppose so."  said   Mndge.

"IVihnps il. I.s," snid Mndge. "Uul  wu���������I   nu.'Hii   wo gypsies���������go  by    rule.  pa lm  Madge  gazed   at   the  small  intently.  "It is. bad at lirst," she said* "This  line," she traced it with her fore-  linger, "is broken and runs aslant.  That means your happiness receives a  check. Hut it joins again presently,  higher up, and that means that, after a time yo,'i will bo happy again."  "Show mo those lines."  "And do you mean to say that  they are different to tho lines on  other person's  hands?"  "Yes," said Madge. "No two  hands are alike. Look at these  lines," and sho followed them out.  "This means that you are rich.  Are you?"  "I���������think so. Yes, I supposo I am  rich," said Irene.  "Well, that is right, anyway," said  Madge. "And this long one means  that you will live to be old."  "Oh, come," said Irene laughing,,  "you can't tell that, Madgo!"  "I only judgo by the.lines," said  Madgo meekly, "There it is, you see;  a  long, straight thread." <-  "Well, I see," said Irene; "but I  don't know whether lo he glad or  sorry."   And she stifled a sigh.  "You should bc glad," snid Madge,  "for seo, tho line of happiness,  though it is broken just here, joins  higher up; nnd that means that you  will be happy presently���������if you are  not  now���������and  will  remain  happy."  "It seems so easy. I think I  should "make a decent gypsy if I had  a lesson or two. Let me see your  hand. Madgo."  "You see, as I said, it is not so  white as yours?"  "No," said Irene, "but it is not  roti, but tho most delicious brown;  and if I were a man I should bo  tired of white hands. We women are  all alike: we dress alike, talk alike,  smile alike! No wonder men weary  of us and havo to be forced to stop  in a ball or drawing-room, rushing  off the very first moment they oan  to their own 'dens' as they call it.  Y'os.wo are all cast in one mold, and  have to be -wearisomely monotonous!"  "You mean ladies," said Madge,  simply.  "My dear,  try and forget that you  have not always  been what you are.  And if you do, no one elso will    remember it."  "Ah, that I could forget!" she said.  "Not   that   I  am  ashamed "   and  the  blood  rushed to  her  face.   "Hut  go_on_with_my^fortune,_Irene..lj -__  "Let me seo. " Here is the lirst line  j-ou pointed out, how straight it is,  and how broad .nt the commencement! That means that have been  happy, Madge?"  "Yes," said Modgo dreamily. "I  have been very, happy. But go on.  What do you see now?"  "The lino breaks; that means���������but,  what nonsense it is!"  "Yes,";. murmured Madge with half  assent. "Hut what does it mean  according to the rules I explninod to  you?"  "Why, according to thcm, it indicates thut your happiness will hoyc  a break. How absurd! Besides, I  don't think anyone could tell your  fortune by your hand, Madge; mere  lines, like mountain rills, running  over it."  "But the larger ones, this tho line  of life, for instance," said Madge.  "Come, you are shirking your lesson,  you lazy girl."  "Tho line of life," said Irene.  "Hom���������let nio see." She looked "at  it and the color fluctuated in her  face, then she shut lho hand up and  playfully flung it away'fcom her.  "It is all nonsense and humbug!"  she suid with a levity wliich was  rather forced. "I don't believe in a  scrap of it, not one iota! You are  a  wicked  little  impostor!"  "That is whnt they all say whon  ono tells thcm a bad  fortune,"  "Well, I won't have anything more,  to do with it!" exclaimed Irene  brightly. "And now what do you  say if we two���������wo two all nlone,  mind���������go around the house on a kind  of voyage of discovery? And we'll  go into the stables and around the  gardens, nnd���������oh, I wunt to show  you  every thing!"  "I'll run and get my hat," said  Madge  eagerly.  Irene  touched  nu  electric  bell.  "There i.s  no occasion, dear,"    she  suid:   and   to  llle  niaiil:  "ili'iilg Mrs. Lamlun's hat.  please."  Aludgi'  noted  the  little   incident.    It  seemed  tluit  in  lliis  grand place  the  great folk���������and sho was one of theni  ���������were not expected to do anything  for themselves.  "Wo     'did'  the     state-rooms    last  night,   all  excepting  the ball-room,'  said Irene;   "so that we needn't    go  downstairs.    Come along!"  They went out to the corridor, and  Ireno "pointed out the old carvings  and ancient tapestry.  "Ono of the maids of honor to  Mary Queen of Scots, worked nearly  all of it, poor thing!" she said.  "Here  is   the  picture  gallery."  Madge looked around. She would  have been more impressed by its  splendor than she was if Royce had  not taken her to the Koyal Gallery.  Irene pointed, in guide fashion, to  some of the pictures.  "A Rubens, a Vandyke, a Leonardo da Vinci, a Botticelli���������all fine  examples. How much do you think  that is worth, Madge?"  "It 16o*ks vory old, and���������I can't  see what it is very plainly."  "No, and very few other persons.  That picture is so valuable, I think.  It is worth! twenty thousand pounds  and the nation would buy it at that  if it could; but it enn't. It g;oes  with the title, you see. Family portraits,  theso.  Madge's Interest increased, and she  looked at thorn eagerly.  "Why, that is Jack���������I menu Royce  himself!" she exclaimed, standing before the portrait of a young man  in armor. .*  "Yes," said Irene quietly; "it is  very like him; there are several  others whom he resembles; and some  of the women have just his eyes,  with that frank, fearless look in  them. There, see! That is the earl,  Lord Landon���������-Seymoui', I mean, of  course. It was painted when he came  into  the title."  Madge looked at the Palo face and  colorless eyes, with their expression  of somewhat cunning cleverness, in  silence for a moment or two; then  she said;  "It is qtiite unlike the other faces."  "Yes," said Irene as she moved on.  "I don't      think   Seymour  resembles  any  of his great ancestors."  They viewed" several of the pictures, commented on them, and then  passed into tho music room. Here  they spent a few minutes, inspecting  tho various musical instruments and  then started out into a beautiful and  spacious arena filled with choice  flowers most artistically arranged. It  was called the Monk's Gardens. Here  they contemplated thc floral beauties  for a time, and thon, passing through  a door in the wall, were soon in tho  larger  gardens  outside.  "Now dome along," said Irene.  "We will go to  the stables now."  "Oh, will you," said a voice, and  Royce came upon them from the  shrubbery.  'Madge blushed slightly, but Irene's  face became scarlet and then paler  than usual;.and Madge, who happened  to  glance  at  her,   felt  alarmed.  "You startled us Royce," she said  almost reproachfully. '  "Oh, I'm very sorry," ho said.  "But haven't you done something in  tho way of startling yourself this  morning? Whero have you two been?  I was just going to have the pond  dragged!"  Irene laughed softly���������sho scorned to  have recovered her composure instantly.  "T have been showing Madge  around," she said, "and we have  been enjoying ourselves all alone by  ourselves, as the children say; and  now we are going to the stables,  and then���������-"  "Might one humbly crave permission to accompany you?" he ��������� Said.-  "I'll promise to behave as well as I  can; no one can do more."  "Shall we let him come, Madge,"  said Irene, brightly, but with averted oyes. "I thought we would go for  a drive afterward, it is such a lovely  morning.     We .could   take the    pony  carriage "  "Which only holds two," remonstrated  Royco ruefully.  "And only two intend going,"  said Irene.  The use of dust poisons to destroy  insects and fungi in our orchards is  as yet in an experimental stage, but  thoso who havo carried, on tlio experiments in the largest and most thorough way, speak" very highly in  praise of tho,method. Like all other  new methods of doing things, there  are always some who do not do it  right and then condemn the method  because they do not succeed writes  Mr. G. E. Howe.  I have only used it one year, but  obtained splendid results and I shall  use it again this year. I use lime a.s  a carrier and . a whirlwind duster  machine, weighing about 75 pounds,  to scatter the dust. Iii ibis limo I  put copper sulphate und arsenite, so  as to have in one mixture a complete  insecticide and fungicide, the samo as  I would in the water solution or  bordeaux. I take .100 pounds stone  limo and place it in a tight mortar  box 10 feet long and 5 feet wide,  with boards 1 foot high on sides  and ends. Over thin I sprinkle eight  gallons'of water slowly so as not to  puddle the lime or paste it."'/' This  will not slake all of the lime, but  will start it, then work it thoroughly and quickly for 20 minutes or until the lime is all slaked into a very  dry powder.  Over this 100 pounds dry, hot.  well-slaked lime I sprinkle 10 pounds  pulverized copper sulphate, for fungi,  ten pounds -powdered sulphur for  scale and lice,, one pound paris green  for chewing " insects, codling moth  and curculio, then stir thoroughly  with hoe for 20 minutes, or until the  copper sulphate and sulphur are thoroughly dissolved witli fhe lime. Then  I take a tight barrel with ono head  out, make two cleats, 1 foot below  the top .on the inside, set ou these  a round sieve that will just lit in  with i-inch mesh. Put ln the sieve  two or three shovelfuls of the dust  and put nn old carpet over the top  and then shake the barrel and repeat  the process until all tho dust is sifted in.  Now put barrel and duster ou a  stone boat or light wagon and you  are ready for a; half day work for a  man and boy. This amount of dust  will go over from five lo eight acres  of six-year orchard and do a thorough job, if dust is thoroughly pro-  pared. The dust will travel over  tho orchard in such clouds that it  will appear from a distance to be on  fire, and- every leaf and branch will  absorb a portion of the poison. The  trees are nover too dry to hold  enough of this dust to destroy the  ;pests and if applied 24- hours before  a rain it will not wash off, -for it  soon forms - a paste with natural  moisture on-leaves and bark of trQ,es.

DOES THE  BABY THRIVE?  If not, something must  be wrong with its food. If  the mother's milk doesn't  nourish it, she needs Scott's  Emulsion. It supplies the  elements of fat required for  the baby. If baby is not  nourished by its artificial  food, then it requires  Scott's  Emulsion  Half a teaspoonful three  or; four times a day in its  bottle will bring the desired  result. It seems to have a  magical effect upon babies'  and children.  SCOTT & BOWNE, Chemiiu, Toronto. Ont.  My experience during the past year  in growing potatoes shows what can  be done by slight deviation from thc  ordinary methods followed in this  locality says Mr. Irving D. Cook.  Instead of plowing tho ground for  potatoes after the spring crops are  planted, as is usually practiced here,  it was plowed nearly a month earlier  and allowed so remain until the  usual time of planting. Tho field  was thoroughly and deeply worked  with a four-horse spring-tooth lever  harrow. This was delayod until conditions were most favorable, after  preparing - the ground as an ideal  seedbed. It was moist, loose and  friable. Al. the same timo T discovered myriads of weeds that wero jur.t  beginning to make their appearance.  Potatoes were then planted about  June 1, in drills wilh a planter. The  Rural New Yorker was tho variety  used. With sonic misgivings' I" have  continued planting thi.s variety every  year since it was first introduced,  but during the Inst three years the  price of seod was so high that I  have "used a good many culls or seconds "from tho market stock for- seed  purposes. ���������_   Owing   to    the     heavy   applications  of  barnyard  manure  which  I plowed  under,  I   had   some fears that    scab  j would     appear.    Early: and   frequent  j cultivation     was     given    until      the  heavy     growth   of    vines    obstructed  work.   The few beetles that appeared  wore kept in check by the  use of    a  hand   sprayer.   Only   one application  of bordeaux  was  given with  a four-  rdw sprayer  during  the; season. , The  nine acres  were-dug just before   the  destructive freeze  in   September  last.  We  used   a   four-horse digger.      The  yield  was  over 200 bushels per acre  of  large,    iiniforni,    smooth*'    tubers,  comparatively   free    from '������������������'.,'rot"     and  scab.    This  .  was   not   considered a  phenomenal    yield   by     any   -means,,  but  the theory  that  like begets  like  and    that     planting   small  potatoes  continuously  tends  to   the   deterioration . of    the stock,. or   that heavy  manuring fosters tho development  of  scab and rot, docs not seem  to hold  in  this caso.      Tho results were    thc  opposite of what  is generally believed' here.'---��������� We are   . often  puzzled     to  know just  what is  best to  do,     but  in   this  case   wo  believe  that     early  spring plowing" tended  to  retain   the  needed moisture that contributed   to  these favorable   results.    Tho     value  of   a   'heavy .application  of  manure  and extra cultivation are factors that  should not he overlooked.   ���������-'.���������'  : Prof. Weichsclbaum, of Vienna, re-  cog-nized as tho first authority on  cercbro-spinal meningitis, who discovered its exciter io 1887, which' is  called after him, "Jlicrococous Oro-  bro-piiiulain Wesclieselbaum," says;  "My experience is that the disease  principally attacks children and  youthful individuals.

The disease spreads from  the 'nose to the meninges (membranes)  of the brain.

"Th'o greatest danger arises from  people living in close quarters in  damp lori'ging houses, barracks,  schools and orphanages. I consider  meningitis far loss infectious tlian  scarlet fever or cholera, but it is  much more malicious because it may  take the form of a simple cold in  tho head, and patients may not be  isolated.

Popular    Competitions    at    ;Co^i-  piegne,   France.  Exceedingly novel races for both  women and men resulted from the  annual gymkhana at Compiegne, near  Paris. Perhaps the must diverting  was the soda water running mutch,  which had been arranged for competitors of the sterner sex.  At fixed distances along the course  bottles of highly charged English  soda water were placed���������four for each  man. In order to" win the race each  bottle had to be opened in turn and  the content!: swallowed, it being a  condition that none should be spilled  to avoid the ordeal of drinking it.  The spectacle of the competitors in  their attomps to swallow a bottle  of soda water at once 'proved highly  diverting, several suffering temporarily for their haste, although benefiting in the end. They became so  charged with gas that tliey felt as  if they were bursting; and three of  them were so discouraged by tho-effects of tho lirst bottle that they  could not faco the second, and forthwith retired from iho race.  What was described a.s an orange  race for young women proved an interesting and attractive event. At  regular "distances of twenty yards  from each other ten oranges were  placed on the ground for  EACH COMPETING DAMSEL,.  These had all to be picked up ami  bro'Jght back in the hands of the  competitor to the finishing line. The  difiiculty of picking up an orange  with several already in one's grasp  must be experienced to be appreciated, and the frantic clTorts of the  young womon to pick up more than  -they could hold provided no ond of  amusement for the onlookers.  In the result several of the girls  dropped every one of their captured  orunges bofore reaching thc winning  point, and only two succeeded in  carrying'homo tho ten circles of golden fruit.  But what seemed to be tho most  popular competition of all was the  necktie race. In which tho participants proper were gentlemen, though  tho.fair sex had not a little to do  with their chances of success. Tlio  distunco to bo run was some 200  yards, and tho competitors had all  to start with their neckties undone.  At the end of tho first 100 yards  ���������were stationed tho young woman who  had undertaken torassist .in the race.  What each competitor, had to do was  to run as speedily as "he could to the  particular girl who was awaiting  him, and kneel down before her while  she neatly and properly tied his necktie. This done, ho had only to get  up and finish thc race by covering the  remaining 100 yards.  ANOTHER NOVELTY  was a basket and ball race for ladies.  Each girl participating in it started  out with a basket containing a dozen  balls and attended by a mere male.  As she ran she had to throw out of  hor basket all these balls, one after  another, while her knight in attendance was to pick them up as nimbly ns he could and return them to  her.  The first girl to succeed in getting  to tho winmg post with tho twelve  balls restored to her basket was to  be tho winner. Jn their scrambles  after tho balls some of tho men cut  such ludicrous figures that the spectators roared with laughter.  An exceedingly pretty race was the  RUNNING A LARGE HOTEL  THE     MARVELS       OF   ONE  THESE  LEVIATHANS.  OP.

The  brooder floor can be covered with a  thin layer of cut clover. A handful  of bright chick grit or very stale  bread slightly moistened with milk,  can be given, The food of the chicks  is practically the same as that furnished the adult stock, being prepared, of course, in a form suitable  to their smaller size.  Chicks should be fed  three or   four  times   during    the    day,      but   care  by  of  al-  , toby  or  that  moods.  Ho humiliated his employes  rebuking: them in tho presence  others.

What is the life of a locomotive?.  As far as English railways arc concerned, the average life is said to be  20 years. Some of tlie French railways claim to have the oldest and  at the same time tlie quickest locomotives in th'o world. The Orleans  Company-have'-on'-.some-of thc Paris  suburban lines a number of engines  tlint were built In 1871, anfl thoy  are still making regular services. One  of the good engines bears the date  1801, and in spite of its 43 years of  existence, it is still at work, hauling  along good trains. But the oldest  engine on tlie company's line is one  which was turned out of the makers'  hands in 1855. and is thus nearly 50  years old. It is still used for light  work. The Orleans Company have  in their possession an engine constructed to their order in .181 *> by  Stephenson, after plans suggested by  th'eir  engineer.   M.   F.  Segtn'n.  Five     to      Six    Hundred     Peoplo  Find  Employment in Some  of  Them.  'ihero are few things more wonderful in London than the mammoth  hotels which have sprung up in such  number.-, during the Ium twenty years  said a gentleman who knows perhaps  as much of the hotels of London  and tho Continent as any man in  England says London Tit-Hits.  There are thousands of people who  visit them every year and wonder at  their enormous ������.i/.e, their palatial  decoration, and lh" army of peoplo  whom they employ; but the most of  them know nothing of the still moro  wonderful feature of thorn, the machinery   by   wliich   thej'  are  worked.  Hut before I tell you about ihat,  let me say that some of these leviathan hotels represent more than $5,-  000.000, and still more of lhem sums  ranging from 82,000,000 to 55.000.-  000; while tho very ground on whicli  they aro built means a yearly income of Sl 0,000 to S20.000 at 4  per cent. Fancy paying 5500,000  before you can lay the very foundation   of your  building!  Then it requires literally a small  army of people to conduct one of  these hofels. A staff of two or three  hundred is too common to mention  almost; while in some as many as  five or six hundred people find ' employment. Hut let me give you lho  figures of one particular hotel, which  by no means ranks  AMONG THE GREATEST.  In this hotel the waiters alone number 100; there are fifty men solely  employed in the kitchen department���������  that is, in purely culinary work���������to  sny nothing of the scullery and pantry-men, and so on, of whom there  are forty. Thero are thirty-live women employed as chambermaids and  to look after the linen; thirty workmen, plumbers, carpenters, etc., forty  men in uniform, and twenty clerks  of one kind or another.  Altogether, the hotel employs a  long way over 300 people, and I can  assure you there i.s not a man or  woman too many, while often a temporary addition has to be made to  the staff.  As you may imagine, a small army  of men like this requires a skilful  general to supervise them, and I  must say there are few cleverer or,  indeed, more hard-worked men ' In  London than the managers of our  great hotels. To begin with, a manager must thoroughly understand  everything connected with an hotel,  from cooking to the  QUALITIES OF CARPETS;  he must be an expert in all kinds of  foods and wines, and know where to  buy them to the greatest advantage:  hc must bc able to choose the right  kind of stalT, and keop them all finder his eye and control- He should  know several languages, be an export  financier and accountant, and a good  c-orrespondiiat;"- he should be familiar  with foreign countries and peoples,  and above all he should be a man of  great tact and urbanity, with a smile  and gracious  word  for every guest.  These are only a few of his qualifications; so you can see that it takes  rather an uncommon man to direct  a groat hotel. Hut I dare sa3r you  would like to hear something of thc  equipment of one of these hotels, so}',  the one I was describing.  Well, if I wero estimating a year's  provisions they would be something  on this scale: .160,000 lb. of meat  (roughlv 1,000 lb. a day you see*;  lish, about G5.00O lb.; hams and  bacon, 40,000 lb.; butter the same,  and  1,000 EGGS A DAY.  I would add,     among  other    things,  20.000     chickens,   20,000   quails.   3.-  000 dudks and     turkeys,   and 3 2,000  pheasants, grouse and partridges.  Then for wines I would lay in 50.-  000 bottles of champagne. 14.000 of  spirits and liquors, the same of "Bordeaux, 8,000 bottles of Moselle, and  5,000 of hock. In all I should want  neurly 100,000 bottles for the year's  consumption.  I should also require, lo s.tnrt with  one-for-yoiing-sirls.-i"n-which--theyTohoiiL^7;o^  one sort or another, 4.000 knives,  5,000 forks, and say, 1,800 fish-  knives and forks. My tablecloths  would cover nbout two acres, for I  could not do with fewer than 2,800 of  them; and to these I would adtl 20,-  000 napkins, 2,000 sheets, and as  many  pillow-cases.  Of course, these arc only a fow  items; but they will give you some  idea of thc ttolofcsaf scale on wliich  a great modern hotel has to be equi]>-  ped. After this you will scarcely he  surprised to hear that the loss  through breakages amounts to from  ?150 to  9200 a week.  KEG UN  EAHLV.

For public institutions the expenditure estimated i'or the coming fiscal
year is about !}>2,U00 less than the estimate I'or the year ending J une 30th,
100."). Paring the pnst year the
o.vpenditui e under several heads of this
account had been reduced, but as
slated before, the inci eased expenditure in connection with the hospital
for the insane more than balanced the
savings made in the other institutions.
Kor hospitals and charities thc estinr
ate this year shows an increase of
$10,000 over the previous year's
estimate. This increase is nearly
altogether due lo lho fact that grants
to hospitals, which is a, statutory vote
and ono over which the Government,
has no control, require a vote of $S 1,000
this year as against $75,000 last year.
L might here call attention to the large
portion of our revenue which is
expended on this account. Commencing with the days of tlie Hudson Bay
Company's regime, a system of paternal government seems to liave -grow n
up that results in our doing much
more proportionately along these lines
than what is done in the other provinces. In Manitoba, with a population,
according lo the census returns, double
that of Urili.il] Columbia, oxpendiliue
-10.000 (10 j ;n -mm j',,,, hospitals was $S_,ti��2, based
!)0fJ'OCO 00jo��� a per capita rate for treatment ol
37J. cents per diem, and in the North
V\"cat Territories, whore I am told a
population of four hundred thousand
i- claimed. Uie expenditure in that
year for this purpose was $1S.!VU,
based on a per capita rate for treatment of 25 cents per diem. In looking
over a statement presented to this
House a few days ago, I Iind we have
expended since confederation on hospitals and charities the very large sum
of $2,515,327, a sum over one-fifth of
the amount, $]2.(;0G,2()1. expended
during that period on public works
and buildings.
For the purposes of education the
estimate for the coming liscal year is
$123,000. Under the old School Act
the sum required would amount to
S-ilOG.OOO, exclusive of $55,000 for buildings. A considerable saving will thus
be effected in this department, but it

business conditions and progress all
over.
In spite of adverse comments by
critics of taxation, the most encouraging reports are coining lo band from
all our mining centres, we are becoming more and more accustomed fo
news of dividends being declared, and
advices from London point out that

But whilst, as stated, the signs of

the Northern rivers being exceptionally good. The failure on the Fraser
Kiver was the more serious because as
a result of it the hatcheries were unable to obtain a sufficient quantity of
salmon eggs. It is a well known axiom
that the supply of nature unless
assisted artificially is unable to keep
up with tho demands of commerce.
Tlio truth of this axiom is exemplified
in the history of the fishing industry
of the Fraser Rivor, and it is of tho
utmost importance to this industry
that both lhe. Federal and Provincial
Governments lake steps to restore the
fisheries of the Fraser River and conserve those of the livois of (he North.
According to the report of 1B03, the
canning industry in 1002 comprised 75
establishments, valued at Sl.500,000,
and gave employment; to over 17,000
persons, a largo number of whom .ire
small ranchers and artisans, as well as
fishermen, and all good customers of
our business houses. Consequently
the question of the conservation of the
fisheries is a most vital one in the
interests of the whole Province.
THK   bU.MUER TRADE.
The lumber trade did nol assume
the proportions to which it was entitled during the past^year, owing to
the competition in the maiketsof the
Xorthwest Ten-it ji-ies hy American
lumbermen. In the year ending Juno
:)Mh, 1.003. the value of the-lumber
imported info Canada from the United
-States amounted to $3.S0O.O00 and the
crreater pint of this lumber was
clumped in the prairie section, the. only
pint of tlie Canadian market open to
mills of British Columbia. Kince that
time thc trade done by the American
lumbermen in the Territories ha =
crrcally increased, although all the
lumber required couid have been supplied from this Province with no
increase in co^t to th" fat nws on the
praiiit-s. Tt is a matter'if very great
regret that latere sums paid for lumber
in rhe Territories, which, with a small
duty- on manufactured lumber, would
come into the pocket's of the mill men
and losgprs of British Columbia and
be of immense benefit f> all branches
of industry in 'he Province, now go to
their competitors in the State of
Washington and adjoining state*.

Fruit growing bids fair to soon
become one of our most important
industries. A few years ago pioneers
perceived the possibilities of tho
country in this respect, and their
elforts have proved- successful in
showing that British Columbia can
hold her own with any portion of the
Dominion. An example of this is that
in 1003 .Messrs. Stirling .t Pitcairn, of
Kclowna, shipped a carload of apples
to Glasgow, which arrived in good
condition and sold at about six shillings per box, while eastern apples
were selling at $1 per barrel (equal tn
:U boxes). This caused numerous
inquiries from persons who saw the
fiuit. A similar shipment from lhe
Okanagan lo Australia was equally
successful, whilst on two occasions in
the, past few months our fruit captured tho gold medal at the if oval
Horticultural Society's show* in London. The object of tlic Government
has not been so much to seek a market by exhibiting in England as to
demonstrate to intending immigrants
the advantages oll'ered by the Province. At Lhe present time we liavo
markets near nt hand which consume
all of "iir productions, and there avo
still large aieas of land capable of
being brought into use for .this
purpose. c
ln additions to the exhibitions in
England, a display was made in Winnipeg lasb August, which was so
successful lhat we were asked lo
repeal il at Brandon, with the result
that not only wus our posilion in
those markets made more secure, but
il was the means ot sending a largo
number of emigrants from the Prairie
Province and Territories across the
mountains to British Columbia. In
addition to this, canneries arc to be
established at New Westminster,
Hammond, Victoiia, and other places,
and there is everything lo encourage
this bianch of enterprise..
The abnormally dry season had the
eil'eel, of reducing thc fruit ciop of last
year. Still an increase of nearly 500
tons is recorded.'
During the year 1003 there was
carried by Oanadian Pacific Railway
l.SGS tons, and by express, 000 tons, in
all 2.5-1-1 tons: while in 1001 there were
carried by Canadian Pacific Railway
2,1-16 tons and by express SOt.tons, in
all 3,010 Ions, or an increase of -1GG
tons.
" The value_of the fruit shipped during tho past year, is estimated afc
$2-10,000 and it is estimated tbat the
lotal value of crop marketed exceeded
$500,000.  .
Tbo area of land planted in orchard,
by census returns, in 1001, was 7,-130
acres; ^estimated acreage of new
orchards planted, in the year 1002-3-J,
0.000 acres, so that at- present the lotal
acreage is estimated at 13,130 acres. -
It is also pleasant lo bo able to
report a large iucrease in our production of buller which amounted lasl
year to over 1,500.000 pounds. There
are now 14 creameries in the Province
which produced in 1001, 1,210,000
pounds of butler, and paid in cash to
their patrons, $270,020. This shows
a satisfactory increase. In 1002 the
production of our creameries was
715.S12 pounds, in 1003, 958,813 pounds
and 1001, 1,210,000 pounds. However,
there is still much to he done, as
butter to the value of $1,170,511 was
imported last year.
The total importation of agricultural products in 1001 amounted to
$7,109, IMS an inerease-of $1,-151,830 in
two years. The value of Uie local
products for that year amounts to
over $4,000,000, which with the value
of the products imported, '.makes a
total of nearly $12,000,000 worth of
fiu-rn   products: handledjii .British

The estimated expenditure for the
year ending .lune 3"th. 10J5, on account of Public Debt i j $00S,070 whilst
that for the year ending June 301 li.
1000, is $731,331 showing an increase
of $G2,255, which is due to the necessity of making provision for interest
and sinking fund in respect to the
Dyking Loan. Tbe amount paid for
Civil Government salaries for the year
1903was $2G5,-150 in the year 1001 the
amount paid for this service was
S200.5CC. The estimated expenditure
on this account for the year .1005 is
S2.iS.B20, whilst that for the year 1000
is S2.52.f_30. nearly $13,000 less than the
amount paid at the time the Government took oflice, and the small increase over last year is due to the
appointment of a Game Warden and
one or two changes necessitated by
the increased business of the country.
In addition to this several clerks formerly employed from year to year on
the temporary list, have been placed
on the permanent list.
The estimates for salaries in connection with the Administration of Justice is $11-1,572, a decrease of $-1,000
from the estimate of the preceding
year and about $10,000 less than the
amount paid in the year ending .lune
BOth, 1001. The total annual reduction
effected in salaries since the present
cr.-aw' of $10,000,
estimated expenditure for
ir covers an expeudii ure based

and in the estimate  for  miscellaneous
Ih-y.o is a. d.

the    year    ending   .Tune  30th,   .1000,
including   $55,000   for   railway   guar-
iiistf'-s, i.s $2,021,038,  and   exceeds  the
amount of tho  esiiniated   receipts  by
$01,(122.    This estimated deficit, is due,
in a large mna.sure. to the necessity of
having to provide for  the  schools  on
the old basis for six moot lis of the coming year and to the addition   ma.de  t.o
oui' standing charges by taking  over
the Dyking account, but r fully believe
that we will be able, l.o curry over from
lhe surplus of  tlio   present   and   past
year  a   sum   sufficient
lhe
to meet
stimal.ed deficiency.
I 1'ioiiiied out last year that lhc. loan
of 1877 will mature in the year 1007,
and the annual expenditure in respect
lo our Public Pcbt will thereby be
relieved of the sum of $27,701 for interest, and $0,253 for sinking fund, a lotal
annual reduction of $37,01 I. The loan
of IM 17 will also mat ure in 1007, relieving Iho annual expenditure on account,
of Public Debt of a furiher sum of
$11,-100, and making a total reduction
in respect to this account of $18,-111,
which in addition lo an esliina'ed
further saving of  $00,000   under   the
the export of logs has been very successful in btiikiincr up the milling
industry in the Province, and with a
little protection from the Federal
authorities, our natural market on the
other side of the mountains would be
conserved to us.

The increase in mineral production
for the past year is very gratifying.
In Uie yenr 1003 t.he total production

Columbia during the past year. Of
course I do not intend it to be inferred
that anything like this amount was
consumed in lhe ' Province as the
increased trade with the Yukon and
exports to the Orient will no doubt
account for a large proportion of this
amount, still as all of this vast amount
could have been produced in the
province it points to the splendid
opportunities British Columbia oilers
to agriculturalists to-day.
bo l'fifori'ed to an independent tribunal,
as suggested iu the tueniuriiil.
A perusual of thu memorial will
show that, per capita, this piovince
contributes to the Federal Governn'iit
$3 for each $1 of the other provinces
of Canada, Recently a transcontinental railway has received immense contributions in subsidies, and guarantees
to aid in its. construction across the.
continent. Of these British Columbia
contributes $3 per head for every $1
per head of the population of the rest
of Canada, yet, in spite of that, and in
spite of tbo fact that at the late election she sent seven solid supporters to
I Iiu-Government who made this bargain al, Ottawa, this province is told
that if she desires her business men or
lioragricullurists to derive any benelit
from the construction of the road
through the province she must put
her hand m her pocket and for a
second lime largely subsidize the railway company which is already so
liberally aided in carrying out tbis
work.
THK  (lOVHltNJIKNT'S  POLICY.
Since this Government has conic into powor it lias  been our duly lo pass
some   disagreeable   and   perhaps  unpopular legislation, but unfortunately
such   legislation   was     necessary    to
rescue the Piovince from the paternal
system of Government which has been
growing upon us since the days of the
rule of the Hudson  Bay Company.    I
have   heard   it   stated   in this liouse
that the Government has  no faith in
the futuro of the province, but instead
of   Ihal  being   t.he   fact, f can assmo
this House, that il was our unbounded
faith   and   confidence in the immense
lesources of British   Columbia, and in
the splendid future, that lies before us,
caused us to pass the legislation I have
mentioned, in  order  that  wo may be
heller able to reach .but aud take advantage of the great opporlunites our
soon coming prosperity  will bring us.
1 have   also heard il stated  that it
was "bad politics" i'or the Governnie.nl
to undertake this  and olher  reforms
at the present time, lint any one looking to lhe true and   best -interests of
the' province, and, not merely to parly
advantage, musladmit thai the course
taken   by   the   govern men b   was the
proper one.     I sincerely believe that
il is a good thing for British Columbia
that it has  to-day a Government, tho
first   Conservative   government it has
ever had, capable of grasping the situation of   affairs   and of   realizing the
needs and necessities of the province,
and thai it is yet better for Bri lish Columbia that the Government, realizing
these needs and  necessities,  has.lhe
courage arid pluck to  crystallize and
place on  the statute books andoarry
inlo effect the legislation required to
give us relief, evonMhottgh such legis-'
lat ion   should ��� bo for   the time being
unpopular.     And  the lesults already
appearing show lhat lho Government
pursued   the   proper   policy.    British
Columbia stands belter and higher in
thc eyes of the world to-day than she
ever   has   before: confidence   is again
restored  and  already wo  bave many
signs of   a   great   coming prosperity.
A steady flow of a good class of 'immigration  inlo  tho soulhcrn portion of
Lhe province has already  set in, and
there is every reason to believe thai a
year or two allatest will see the opening up of   tho   northern portion, and,
with the  construction   of   a   railway
throughout its length, there will come
the necessity to  duplicate   the   whole
system of administration   aud education   lhat   now   obtains   in  southern
British Columbia.     This Government
fully appieciates   this   coining tide'of
prospeiity, and''consequently  is anxious to lie   ready lo   meet   it.     To do
this, il is necessary to  free lhe wheels
of   Government  from   the somewhat
clogged   condition   lhat   has resulted
from the past^idmmislralioii ofalfaiis

of copper in 1001 averaged one-half

that of: lead was vcry slightly higher.
The principal increases were in lend,
which doubled the oul put nf 1003, and
in coke.

to the whole of the people of this
country, when we consider the contention of thc Quebec Conference,
that in aiding the development of
the. Provinces by inomia'sd. subsidies the revenues of tli'; "Do--
minion will be proportionately
swelled. This applies especially to
British Columbia, where lho inimense

cre:ising our subsidies, must reap a

Hogs and Squealers.
The agent of tlie C.P.R. al llossland
recently billed a crate containing one
hog to China Creek station. The China
Creek agent received aerate that day
containing an even dozen oT animals
generally known as pigs. Uo called
down the KoHslaiid agent for hilling
otic hog when there were Iwelve, and
the Rossland agent wanted lo know if
'the China Creek agent bad sliuck a
new brand of booy.e. Tofiullier complicate matters a sawmill man to whom
llio hog was hilled, culled Tur his bog
and the China Creek agent wanted him
lo pay express on twelve bogs instead
of one. This request was indignantly
refused on tTio grounds that one, and
only one bog bad heen sent for." Rate
(���arils, trallic sheets and rules were
carefully perused. hut finally the express was delivered and the matter of
payment left to arbitration. The Hoss-
land agent wns right. Hc shipped one
hog, but by the time tho crate reached
China Creek eleven little squealers had
been born. Hence all the trouble.���

But a few days ago tho Portland  Travelers' Aid Association of this ciLy  announced the preparation of a large  number of leaflets aud placards, to be  distributed in tlie various centers of  population, warning unskilled and  unemployed young women against  coining to Portland to seek positions  simply because it is Exposition year.  It is the purpose to set forlh the fact  that such field of labor will be greatly  overcrowded. Such warning is timely  and the hope is that it will prove  eflicacious.  It is very natural that many young  women should  be attracted to an Exposition city, iu the belief that remunerative employment is to be had merely  for the  asking.     This  is  a mistaken  notion,  nevertheless;  dangerously so,  in fact, as that young   woman   may  realize   whose   ambitious.'mission  results iu failure, and who finds herself  without employment, means,  friends  or protection iu a city like Portland,  with a great Exposition in full swing.  Tlie risks   incident lo such a   step are  not to be coniplacently  contemplated  ":;;*'by those  of. the   gentler sex who lire  endowed with'plenty of nioral stamina  and who have some knowledge of the  :'.-,   world, while to .the inexperienced not  so equipped there is positive menace  ih the situation.

Ezra Chnii-  dos's heart scarcely seemed *o beat,  ns the hangings slowly parted. A  faint scent of violets had floated in;  a sweet, oval face, cradled in ������������������ "'!i  furs, peered through. The Hon. Vera  Landale had come to "sit" to him, a  struggling artist, for the last time.  "Vou are here, then?" she whispered, with a subdued little ripple of  laughter that seemed to veil somo  note of fear. "Aren't I foolish? I  was half afraid as I heard no  soiind  "Forgive me! I forgot my manners; I don't know why." Trying to  smile, he hesitated with a sort of  nervousness that the artistic circles  had certainly never suspected in the  rising young portrait-painter. "Why  afraid?" he asked, clearing his voico.  "Vou can trust me to keep your secret if it is so necessary. I was only  dreading you might not be able to  keep this last appointment���������if it  should   be   the  last,   that   is."  "Jt will be; I holtt you to your  word of honor there," she said, the  smile dancing in her beautiful eyes.  Rhe looked like somo sunbeam in the  sombre studio as, in white from  head to foot, she stepped from her  long cloak.- "No; we mustn't talk,"  she whispered, moving elusively aside  as he came involuntarily forward.  "Never mind ceremony; yo.u must  Paint for your life."  "For my life!" He repeated the  words slowly, looking past her.  Something seemed to rattle in his  throat.  "Yes; you know what I mean. Only  the final touch remained, you assured  me. I dare not risk it again.; you  cannot understand how difficult lt  hns been to get here each timo on a  different.'pretext.

"Vou .surely see how I am placed���������  ihat any thought of such romance  would  cause  a  social  sensation."  "And will not the picture do that?  Will no one ask the name of the  painter?   Miss     Landale���������Vera! I  must call you that; you have given  me the right to do so. You kept  silence; you allowed the'hope to grow  and develop in me���������the hope that inspired my work and made that picture seem to grow into your dear living self. It's true, and your heart is  telling you  so  at  this  moment."  Iler lips twitched again, but no  word camo. She was looking past  him, as if quito unaware of the hand  still held imploringly out. Her face  was .set; only in her eyes was a film  that made them like pausies seen  through mist. Chandos went on, his  _yoice_traillng_awav__to_a^h,uskv^AvhiST.  ha came to himself to realize that  sho had drawn on her cloak and  stood to  say "good-bye."  "It is really mine?" sho whispered.

"Nothing at a"." came the quiet  voice. And u little quiver seemed to  inu  Ihrough   her.  "Nothing? What can you mean,  Mr. Chandos?"

Jt struggled from his lips,  in spite of himself.  The .curtains had been parting; an  instant more and the sunlight of her  living presence would be gone, leaving him  the darkness  and desolation.  Hid she understand? Was it an impulse of pity? It seemed almost unreal, but she had rustled swiftly  back, laid her lips tremblingly  against his cheek, and was gone. For  ix minute he stood as in a spell; then  he groped toward a little inoer room,  closed the door, and leaned against  the dusty wail, ns if afraid that the  world might hear his sob. He had  dared; he had spoken; was that  touch of her lips an answer, or had  it been a mute sign that ho must  face the eternal parting bravely���������  that sho trusted to his honor to  keep silence?  His brain in a strange whirl, he  camo back into the quiet studio. He  wanted to look once more into the  face he had painted���������to read something in the eyes which his hope had  endowed with the genius that made  them live. But that was not to be.  Lying there, near the curtains, was  an open, unaddressed onvclbpe.- He  had not seen it fall, but it could only  havo dropped from her cloak; the  scent still lingered about it as he  picked  it  up.  Hardly knowing what ho did, his  heart pounding dully, he drew out a  folded sheet of note-paper. Yes; her  own handwriting. Vaguely Conscious  of meanness, yet impelled by irresistible fascination, he read out the  words she had written to somo  friend:���������  -' 'Bear Katie,���������I feel I can speak to  you as to myself. Wliat shall; I do?  The tragedy of my posit ion grows  and grows. It has come to this,  that I go in fear of a scandal. If he  would, only have the tact to realize!  Yet I feel sure I have never encouraged him.   I did not realize until the  HOW MEN SHAM DISEASE  INSTANCES    AMONG SOLDIERS  AND SAILORS.  Securing  Best and     Treatment   in  Hospitals���������Self-imposed Injuries.  The art of shamming disease has  reached a high level of perfection  This is mainly to bo attributed to  the fact that' the rewards of proficiency aro great. Fresh iu the minds  of all is tho recent cuse of a professional beggar in the city of London whose voluntarily parotic limbs  stirrod up the lively compassion of  tho passersby, oven of tho poor, so  that charitable gifts ilowed into his  roady  palm.  This caso has excited some little  attention, chielly because the polico  have prosecuted him successfully, but,  says the London Lnucet, he is only  one of vory many.  It is, however, In connection with  the naval and military services that  the art of malingery finds its chief  exponents. Indeed, the word "malinger" was first applied to'"the attempts of soldiers to evade arduous  or unpleasant duty. It is of interest  to notice the difference that exists  between countries in which conscription prevails and thoso in which only  voluntary service exists. Tn the former the most strenuous exertions aro  sometimes made to escape service,  and sinco most deformities disqualify  for admission, recruits, or rather  those who were liable to serve in tho  army, have not hesitated to inflict on  themselves the most severe injuries  in order to avoid service.  In the days when it was necessary  for a soldier to bite off the end of  the carlri'dgo in loading his musket  it was no uncommon event for a  man to have one or moro teeth extracted or filed down so as to obtain exemption. In countries such  as our own at tho present time,  where voluntary service exists, we  are more likely to find applicants for  enlistment wli'o attempt to hide diseases. In all- countries, however,  many soldiers, whether they havo  been called to the service by conscription or have entered it voluntarily,  earnestly ;  DESIRE TO LEAVE IT.  Thoro is an old tale, in all probability true, that illustrates well the  trouble which such a man will take  to escape from military service. A  soldier was seized with paralysis of  the right arm; tho loss of power  camo on suddenly and without obvious cause. Malingering was suspected, but all tho efforts of the sur-|  geon of the regiment were unavailing;  no proof could be obtained that the  paralysis was feigned. Tho man was  examined by two medical boards and  ultimately he was given his discharge.   A.s he went oif from the bar-  picture  was .well   begun   that  he .had   ,.nck������ on lhe to,, of thc coach (it was  per:���������  "Are you afraid of what your  j octal world might think? Why?

"My picture  would make you a name, you have  ."���������aid. That is why���������why I am so  eager to see it shown���������to hear what  they sny of it. Don't prolong the  suspense." She strained the slim,  white hands together and swept to  and  fro���������a  sweet   palpitation   of    life  any deeper feelings than those of the  artist; and then something in his  manner told me that if I disillusioned him he '.would never finish the picture.   How  can  .1 let  him know?  "Never was a woman so awkwardly placed. What might he not say  arid do when he hears that I am  practically promised to a man of  whom ho has not yet heard? Ho  thinks, of Course, I am a rich woman; those silly reports about my  money and diamonds hc fully believes.    Come  to  that,   if I could   let  hiin know my  real  position it  would  be  tlie   speediest   way   to   mako     his  'love'  grow  less embarrassing- "  The paper dropped from his fingers.  He gave that dull5 little moan, his  muscles quivered, he stood making  the effort of his lifetime, Then, like  a man going blind, he had stumbled  towards liis .-precio-JS picture. There  surged up the impulse to tear it to  strips, but he fought it back���������he  would not stoop to revenge for her  treachery.- With shaking iinger3 he  drew down the picture; for one last  minute, with eyes brimming, he looked into the face���������and then, as from  another world, he heard a little cry  of infinite yearning. Ho could not  move; it seemed as if the picture had  called to  him.  "Ezra! Ezra! Forgive me!"  He looked. Those curtains had  parted again; the same sweet face,  working in an agony of hesitation,  was there between the folds. Her  hand=-had^stolen^oufe  "Speak! Forgive mo!" sho whispered again. "My heart told me that I  had tried you too far; I could not  let the vile trick do its work. Oh,  cannot you understand what I have  'felt���������what I suffered beforo I could  write that letter and leave it for you  to read? It wns a lie���������but. a lie for  love!"  lie could not answer. It Was not  real! He could only watch her face I  as one watches a lost, sweet face in !  dreams. !  "I could not feel sure: I wanted to j  trv you." the trembling voire reached" him. "If yo'i devApittti nn:, I have.  deserved it. I loved you from the  beginning, but I dared not show it.  I felt. T might be making the fatal  mistake so many women make; they  told me���������they told mo that I should  rue it, that it was my money you  wanted.        I  thought if   I wrote  that  in the days before railways), he waved a hearty goodby to his comrades  with liis paralyzed arm.  ..Probably the best example of the  perseverance which men will display  in the attempt to leave a servi-je  which Ihey detest is to be found in  a case undei- the care of Clino. '.he  patient was a sailor in the British  Navy, and it is worthy oi note that  he wns a "pressed" man. He fell  on his head and a slight depression  of tlie skull was produced. He immediately became unconscious and all  efforts to rouse him failed. He lay  quietly in his hammock and never  moved. He seemed deaf to  sounds, and at no time uttered any  word. He was able to swallow food,  both solid and liquid, and indeed he  made signs with his lips and tongue  when he wanted nourishment. Ho  was brought back to England, but  no improvement followed and the  "unconsciousness" lasted for thirteen  months. Then it was resolved to  raise the depressed portion of the  bone. Flaps were made, a trephine  was applied and the bone was cut  through. An elevator was then introduced to raise the bone, and as  the bone was lifted up consciousness  suddenly returned to the patient and  he spoke. At the time of the operation most of the onlookers accepted  the case as genuine, but no one  would nowadays venture to support  the idea that the patient really lay  unconscious for thirteen months,  suddenly  injury in a railway accident several  lesions may be simulated, and especially those obscure and ill-defined  conditions which have been attributed to "spinal concussion." Theso  latter form a large and very important class, thc detection of the fraud  of  which is often most  difficult.  Sad to relate, many of the attempts to imitate disease havo led  to serious and irreparable results,  and  EVEN TO DEATH ITSELF.  A man excited an ulcer in his leg by  means of a copper coin, and later  gangrene appeared, necessitating amputation below tho knee. In endeavoring to oxcito haemoptysis a  man swallowed a cork into which  pins Iind been inserted. He spat up  blood antl became very emaciated  nntl then suddenly died from hemorrhage. At the necropsy it was found  that the cork and pins had lodged at  the junction of the pharynx and  osophagus nnd that the pins had ulcerated through the oesophageal  walls and had opened into the common carotid artery on both sides.  Children aro great adepts at feigning  inaludies, and thoy frequently display a surprising acquaintance with  tho symptoms  of  disease.  The detection of malingering is often no easy matter, and no general  rule can be laid down which will be  applicable to all cases. The mere,  threatening of severe methods of  treatment is sometimes successful but  frequently fails. Tho threat of the  application of the actual cautery has  cured paralysis, but cases havo been  recorded whore malingerers have endured the cautery on several occasions. A man who simulated blindness was placed on the edgo of a  jetty and told to walk straight forward. He stepped out and fell into  the water, for he knew that those  who were testing him dared not let  him drown. In another case, however, a man who seemed to have paralysis of an arm allowed the amputating knife to be placed close to it  without flinching but when thrown  into the river he struck out with  both arms and swam.  A very useful method of detection  is the suggesting of new signs, and  symptoms of the patient. The surgeon remarks, say in the caso of a  paralyzed arm���������in the hearing of the  malingerer that it is strange - - that  tho little finger is flexed, it ought to  be straight. In all probability at  the next visit the little finger will  have assumed the suggested position.  The more outre and irregular the  fresh symptoms suggested by the surgeon tho more definite is tho detection. In general anaesthesia we possess a valuable means of discriminating in certain cases between true and  false paralysis or contractures. While  thc patient is just going under or  recovering from anacsthia the "paralyzed" limb may be seen to move  fi'ooly.  ���������: ���������   <>0<>00(X)OOOCHXKKKKK>(KX><>  YOUNG  FOLKS  <><><>OC>0-0-CK>CK>OCM>0<>0<>0-f><><>  A DOLL'S ADVENTUItES.

Since 1804. it has never  had ono above that figure, and last  year yielded the absolutely lowest  death rate on record for the Metropolis,   viz.,   15.2.  removal of the depressed bone. There  can be no doubt that the man was a  malingerer and adopted this arduous  method of leaving a service into  which   he had   been   forced.  THE AMOUNT OF PAIN  and discomfort which malingerers are  willing to endure to obtain their  discharge is almost incredible, but  the facts aro well attested. A limb  has been held in a fixed position for  many months, and not even tho application of the actual cautery has  sufficed to move it. Many men have  chopped oli some fingers and have  claimed that it was an accident. Mental derangement of one sort or another is a favorite form of malingery, but the results usually resemble the popular or stage idea of in-  sni.ity rather than the true products  of mental alienation. It is not uncommon for the malingerer to combine two forms of insanity, and this  may be of value in detection. Still,  il. is often very difficult to be certain  that a patient is shamming. There  are, however, some phenomena which  cannot, be simulated. It is impossible for a sane man to imitate successfully line persistent insomnia  which often occurs in the iri.iuno; the  impostor cannot put: off sleep beyond  the second or third day.  Another frequent motive for malingering is to attract attention not for  the purpose of obtaining money but  merely to gain notice. Simulated  joint affections arc not rare antl there  are many olher forms. These cases  merge imperceptibly into hysteria,  and indeed in many hysteria is combined with the wish to deceive. It  is not improbable that in Some of  these patients there is a certain du-.  gree of cutaneous anaesthesia, which ;  renders l.ho self unit ilnl-ion more easy  of nccompll.shment.. There nre olher  causes for simulating disease or in-  Soiuclimes it is done to  punishment, sometimes to  vengeance on another person  who is accused of having inflicted tho  injury.   To  obtuin  compensation     or  Views     of      Professor     .Von  Hausemann.  Prof. Von Hausemann delivered a  lecture recently boforo tho Berlin  Medical, Society, in which he avowed  himself to be a determined opponent of the parasitic cancer theory.  It has not yet been found possible,  he said, to produce cancer in animals by transmission from human  beings.' It had not been proved that  cancer occurred in the form of an  epidemic ln certain places, or tliat it  was hereditary in certain families;  all and even if this had been proved it  would not throw any light on the  question of infection, as cancer Was  very prevalent. The increase in cases  of cancer, the professor said, which  amounted to from two to three per  cent., was only an apparent increase  due to the fact that more cases were  detected now than formerly.  UNFOUNDED FEARS.  The constant and increasing anxiety of the general public in regard  to cancer was. Prof. Hausemann considered, quite unfounded. The existence of cancer parasites, he maintained, had not been proved, and  care should therefore be taken not to  represent cancer as an infectious disease which could be transmitted from  one person to another. Thc sufferings  of tho unfortunate victims of cancer  were only intensified by tho idea  =thafc-they-^might=-be-the-cause-of=the  spread  of  the  disease.  I'rof. Von Hausemann agreed with  the view that cancer would only be  caused by external violence in cases  where such violence was continued for  a length of tlmo ond exercised a  chronic influence. Malgnant swellings, which had their origin in irritations, differed in nature and  strength, and it might, therefore, bo  assumed that there were many causes  of  cancer.  THE OTHER SIDK.  During the discussion following  the lecture, Prof. Von Leyden vigorously defended the parasite theory,  and expressed his conviction thnt  the whole Course of tht disease confirmed this theory. Ho maintainod  that cancer parasites inhabited the  cancer cells, grew with them, and  caused a constant spread of tho  swelling. He himself had proved the  existence of certain germs ot cancer  in the shape of smail round bodies,  which lay firmly embedded in the  cells. Various chemical experiments  he said, which had been made in the  Cancer Department of the Berlin  Charity Hospital, also confirmed the  parasitic  nature of  cancer.  jury,  avoid  wreak  HAV 13 A TfOliBV.

Her beauty is gone,  her clothes aro ruined, and Fido has  broken hor talking-machine. Baby  will like her as well as a now one;  and he would soon spoil a doll, anyway.'  "Aiico Maud Mary shuddered. To  be handed over to that barbarous  boy baby! She had a sweet, long-  suffering disposition, but���������there are  times when patience ceases to bo a  virtue. Alice Maud Mary resolved  to go out into the wide, wide world  and seek her fortune. It couldn't  bo worse, she thought, and might bc  better. So that very night she  climbed out of th'e play-room window and went forth into the wide,  wido world.  "She travelled and travelled and  travelled, until she came to another  house. 'I will go ia here,' sho said  to herself, 'and sco what fortune has  for ime.' So she went up the graV-  eled walk, climbed a honeysuckle-  vine, and stepped through a window. Sho found herself amid a clutter of paint tubes, brushes and old  rags; an-d she was so tired that she  fell asleep among them.  "In tho morning a young lady  stood beforo the table, and exclaimed:  " 'Why, how did this doll come  liero? Poor thing! What a wreck! I  will paint hor a fresh complexion,  nnd give her to little Louisa Wintor-  botham. Louisa is learning to sew,  and can make her a new gown.'  "Sho took up her brushes and  paint en rosy cheeks, coral lips, azure  eyes and golden curls; and Alice  Maud was more beautiful than ever  before.  "But Alice Maud Mary had no intention of belonging to Louisa Win-  terbofh'am. That very night sho  climbed down tho honeysuckle-vino  and set forth again into the wide,  wide world.  "Sho travelled and travelled ami  travelled, until she came to another  house. This house liad a piazza, and  inside th'o piazza window sat an old  gentleman, nodding over his newspaper. Alice Maud Mary went up  the steps, and climbed into the old  gentleman's  lap.  "Pretty soon the old gentleman  awoke with a start. 'Bless my soul!'  he cried. 'If here isn't a doll-baby!'  What's this sticking out of lier  body? Somo mechanism, I declare!  It's one of those talking dolls. Poor  thing! " Well, well, I can fix that!  And jnother shall put in some bran  or something and sew her up; and  wo'll give her to little Dorothy  Dalrymple.'  "Tho next dny it was done, and  Alice Maud Mary had a moro shapely body and a more musical voico  than evor before.

Thoir quarrel is  boing  investigated.  Kuropatkin, though only fifty-  seven, lias, after a long' series of reverses, been superseded by Linievitch.  said to be about sixty-live.

When William Waldorf Astor purchased Hever castle in Kent, one of  the most perfect survivals of feudal  architecture, in England, where Anno  Bolcyn busked in tho favor of Henry  VIII., antiquarians rejoiced that it  Iind fallen into sympathetic hands,  but he is now improving it out of  ull recognition.

"Three horses in the stable, lieutenant,"  he said.  The landlord started at the sound  of his voice, and recoiled almost into  ,his arms from Du Gescuo's threatening  movement.  I "They belong to the gentlemen  who arrived this morning," ho stammered.  "Then tho gentlemen must lend  them.   Bring  them  out  quickly."  "They are not fit, m'sieur, on my  honor. They are worse cattle than  jours, and spent with overriding."  "Quite true, lieutenant," agreed  the corporal. "But with a few hours"  rest  they  will  take us on."

' Lieutenant do Gescue mounted to  iis room ��������� with quite affectionate  houghts of his courtly host and of  hc awaiting dinner. His bad temper htid passed; and when, a few min-  it.es later, a man entered with water-  an and clean towels, ho was looking  >ut' nt the sunset on tho hills and  '.imming gaily.  The servant, stood by  as  the  soldier unclasped his belt, and without  i, word took from his hand the sword  ind  sabretascho.   Du  Gescue paused;  ooked  at  him  curiously. . From    nis  Vell-oilcd head to his polished shoes  -he man  had  "valet"  stamped  upon  iim and "Parisian." With tho acjito-  'jiess of his class, too he noticed; the  ioldier's  expression.  | "My  master,   Monsieur  Rame,"   he  Jnentioned,      deferentially,     "ordered  ,ne to see that the lieutenant  rt a r'it-  id for nothing."  : ".Ah! that, explains.

He turnod,  "ator showering from face and hair,  iust too lato to see M. Ramo's valet  lido sombthlng beneath tho couch  ,s he. stooped to pick up tho weapon.  [With an apology for his clumsiness  1 ntoino replaced it, and hastened to  and a towel to Du Gescue, upon  'horn suddenly dawned the inadvis-  ;*_iH1-y of placing confidence in a  '.range valet. Tlic lieutenant tlress-  '!.rapidly, assuring himself as ho  tickled on his aword that the packet  /as safe in    .the sabrotaschc,    and,  I"  preceded by Antoine,  clanked    down  the   stairs.  The room into. which the latter  ushered him was large enough to be  fresh and airy on a hot summer's  evening, yet not too spacious for  the comfort of a small party of  friends. There were two persons pro-  sent beside his host. One, a well-fed,  dark man, with black, prominent  eyes, a heavy jowl, and a trick of  frequently wetting his full, red lips  with  the  tip  of his tongue.  "Monsieur Mo3'er," said Rame. The  lieutenant bowed, idly speculating in  what branch of trade M. Meyer was  engaged. But the other person left  no doubt as to his lack of occupation. Dress of tho latest fashion���������  fair beard of tho latest cut���������white,  supple fingers���������solt, slow voice anil  movements���������proclaimed Baron Corlieu nn idler of the boulevards. All  three welcomed Du Gescue as an acquisition to . their party, and Rame  laughingly bade him discard atTairs  of State in favor of cold chicken and  Boaune, "for," he said, "care and  appetite are deadly enemies."  There was very little Du Gescue  cared for except gaming, love-making  and 'duelling, at all of which he considered himself an adept. ... Rame  quickly discovered it, and within ten  minutes had turned the conversation  into channels quite pleasing to his  guest. "He talked excellently; his  blue eyes twinkled; his tongue was  tipped with good-naturod sarcasm  and laughing cynicism. To the  young soldier ho was delightful. It  flattered him, though he would not  have owned it, that the man who  could give him twenty years at least  and knew -every capital in Europe  should treat him as an equal iti age  and experience. The wine passed  freely, too���������excellent wine���������-and0as  the lieutenant grew talkative and excitable Rame exerted his conversational talents more. Between them  they monopolized the' table. The  Baron and Meyer only joined in fitfully; it seemed to the guest that  their wit was a trifle forced. Meyer  especially was uneasy, and onco so  palpably interrogated Rame with a  lift of his eyebrows that the latter  was forced to invent a reply for the  lieutenant's benefit.  He was proceeding to covor the  contretemps by the narration of  some of his companion and a grisette  of Montraartre, when a' clamor and  a hoarse, angry cry from above  brought them all to their feet. For  a second thoy stood listening. Thero  was a scuffling of feet, and tho lieutenant, recognising the voice of Corporal Manette, mado a step forward.  Tlie others, as if his movement had  put lifo into them, crowded to the  door, hampering his attempt to leave  the'-rooini -They-heard' a swift rush  .of feet on the stairs, then curing, 'as  the coiporal lumbered down, with  spurs ripping the woodwork and  scabbard clanking..- Tlie.-tumult, passed, and Mi Rame, threw open the  door and let his friends out into.thc  narrow passage. It was loo late  to stop the two men. Du Gescue,  gazing after the - flying figures,  thought he recognised in tho foremost Antoine, the valet, and said  as much to name, who laughed and  shrugged his  shoulders.  "Then Antoine will have a good  drubbing if your corporal catches  him. I suppose you left nothing of  value in your room?" he added, anxiously.  "All I have I carry on  me."  "Good!.   Valots     aro   prying   folk;  the best are not to be trusted."  As they returned to tho room  Meyer touched name's arm. "Failed?"  he whispered.  "I suppose so," was "the savage  reply.  "'Then ?"  Rame nodded in answer, and called  aloud to tho landlord to remove thc  dinner and bring candles.  Du  Gescue looked at the clock.  "Gentlemen, pray accept my apologies,"  he said.    "Duty "  "Horrible word!" ejaculated the  Boron, with a shudder.  "Really, I am inclined to agree  with you," the soldier confessed;  "but it is  a potent one."  "You cannot travel on foot, lieutenant," cried Moyer; "and- tho  horses  will not  bo fresh enough."  "Thoy must serve, howover. Corporal Manette must follow if I do  not ovectake him."  "My dear Du Gescue," put in  Rame, quietly, "no doubt your man  will return quickly, however irate he  may be, and the horses will carry  j'ou farther for every hour of rest  they have now." ,  Tho lieutenant hesitated.  "It will bo a good investment,"  drawled the Baron, placing a pack  of cards upon  tho  table.  "Upon my word, you almost persuade mo."  .."We shall be delighted,", said  Rame, "but I .should not presume to  persuade."  Perhaps he knew that thc soft,  cosy light nnd the cards Corliou had  commenced to shuffle deliberately  would have greater influence than  any.words. He noted with satisfaction the indecision in De Gescuo's  face, .and the hesitating hand that  tugged at his moustache.  "Deuce take it;, I -believe you're  right, Rame/' the young man answered, after a pause. "At. any rate  I can make up for lost time,''and. it  would be as well to know what that  valet of yours has been, doing." .' .-'���������  -"Wisely decided! Now, just a* game  of ccai'te till he' returns."  Du Gescuo'-; sot down unsteadily  and, lifting'his gluss, drank.  "Eh? Brandy'.'" he said, looking  round.  "Yes," roplied Kame, indifferently.  "What is it like? We've finished all  the landlord's decent  wine."  "Oh, good enough. How do we  play?"  "You and Corliou, I thought, tie  prides himself on his ecarte. You  must toaCh him the game, Du  Gescue." *  "What's the lesson worth. Baron?"  Moyer laughed, playing with a second pack. "Twenty francs a game?"  "That is for Du Gescue to say,'-'  responded Corlieu, taking his seat,  opposite.  Tho lieutenant's eyes woro bright  with wine and excitement; his lips  parlod as ho watched the glazed,  green cards slipping easily through  lite opponent's flngera.  "Yes," said hc,   'what you like."  "Cut," answered  Corlieu; and    the  play began.  Both were line players, and the  cords ran evenly; neither gained  much advantage during the first half  hour. Then the limit was raised,  and they staked on points. Rame  watched the lieutenant closely, and  nodded to Meyer from time to time  to refill his glass. B'Jt presently the  brandy stood unheeded. Du Gescue  was dead to everything but the  game; a run ol luck was against  him, and his notes dwindlod to the  last.  Rame came gently to his elbow.  "Make mo your banker," he said,  softly, and slid a fresh roll on to the  table. The lieutenant took it almost  mechanically. "I propose," ho said,  playing. Tho Baron nodded, nnd  tho game went on. Higher rose the  stakes; tho faces of the players became strained and set. The clock  was upon the stroke of twelve and  had given the click that precedes the  striking of tho gong; Meyer crossed  the room, opened tho case, and stopped the pendulum. Thore was no  sound from without���������none from within but the sharp sentences of tho  players and the click of the cards.  Du Gescue had forgotten everything. The brandy numbed his brain  to all but the fascination of play.  With fixed eyes he stared before him;  his voice grew thicker and less  steady, with every deal. Rome's  purse had been soon exhausted, and  tho lieutenant was signing his name  to, slips of paper. Presently he stopped, his hand raised in the act of  cutting tlio cards.        / ;*'';������������������  "How much," he demanded, thickly���������"how niUch there?" nodding to  the-pile of paper before his opponent.  "Much do I owe, Baron?"  "Oh! only a few thousand francs'���������  twenty, thirty, perhaps," replied  Corlieu, lightly. "The luck's running your way at .last-"  The lieutenant gazed at him  drunkenly.  "Play you for it," he said. "Double it all" on the next game.".  "You're mad," cried Meyer, insolently. "Corlieu's the better player.  Leave it alone."  But Rame interposed. "Pooh!  take no notico of Meyer; he's drunk.  After all, why play any more?"  '.'I will play.. Baron, are you  afraid? Double what's there, if it  ruins me."  "Done!" replied Corlieu. "Cut!"  The lieutenant turned the card,and  picked up his hand���������the worst five  cards-he had hold that night, and he-  knew the game was lost. Three minutes later he dropped his last card.  "How  much?"  he muttered. '  ��������� "One hundred and ^fifty-six thou-j  c-id francs," the 'Bar,on__announccid.  There was deau silence.- The three  men watched Du Gescue closely, his  whole body . rigid. . Then^he' turned  his head and looked at them one  by one, a pitiful smile upon his lips  .Rame handed him brandy; he drank  slowly and dropped the glass from  his nerveless fingers in a blind attempt to replace it on the table.  "I didn't know���������it was���������so much"  he faltered.  "The fortune of war," Meyer murmured.    "I told you."  "Come, Du Gescue"���������Rame laid  his hand on tlie young man's shoulder���������"is    it so  bad  as that?     Next  time "  ."Thero will be no next time. It^s  ruin, Rame���������difhonor. I cannot  pay."     -  Mejer whistled. The sound stung  the lieutenant to the quick; his  white face flusihed. Corlieu had a  sneer upon his lips, too.  "I risked too much upon the last  game, it seems," he said, drily.  Rame spoke up in defence. "Baron  I will hear nothing against the  honor of my friend. Meyer, be silent. Think, Du Gescue, is there no  way? The next turn of tho cards  may  retrieve   everything.  "It .is easy to play for a stake  one does not possess," persisted Corlieu, mockingly. "You champion  him, monsieur, and Speak of honor.  Let us test it. I will, wager all I  have won against something Lieutenant Du Gescuo does possess, this  time. Will he have tho courage to  stake something he can lose? I play  ono hundred and fifty-six thousand  francs against���������the ' despatches to  Strasburg."  Tlie joldier started and half Jlrew^  his swordT But "Rame, close beside  him,  caught    his    hand and     firmly  grasped the sealed packet". "Two  points���������Game!" he cried in triumph  Tho lieutenant sat stupidly staring at the fatal cards���������sat as one  dead, only he swayed slightly. .Almost in fear they gazed at him, till  with ��������� a spasmodic gesture he thrpw  out his arms, sweeping from the  table everything within reach, and  buried his face in his hands.  Rame breathed a sigh of relief and  took the despatches from his companion.  "He's compromised, and will be  with us now," ho whispered. "Quick!  make a copy and seal it up agai:i "  Thc soldier stirred, and raised a  haggard face as Corlieu placed paper  and ink upon the table. Rame, knife  in hand, hold the packet to the light  of a candle, when ahurried step on  the stairs startled them.  The door wns thrown violently  open, and Corporal Manette, swo.-d  in liand, storn-faced and threatening,  saluted Jiis 'oflicer.  "The despatches, lieutenant," said,  he, presenting a blood-stained counterpart of the packet Ramo held.  Du Gescue looked round wildly.  With a choking cry he sprang to his  feet. Rame uttered an oath and tore  seals and envelope savagely.  "Blank, by Hoavon!" he cried, as  a few sheets of white paper fluttered  to the floor.  Tho corporal's eye took in the  whole scene and its meaning.  "The despatches, lieutenant," he  said again, sharply, almost . com-  mandingly. Du Gescue sprang forward with an operpowering sense of  relief and clutched them eagerly. At  the same time Meyer tried to; approach .unnoticed. Corporal Manette  turned -quickly.. "Ba-ck, .'.there! '���������':���������"' he  cried. "My - faith! With traitors  these are the only cards of play,"  and struck him full in the face with  his sword-hilt'. Rame forced a smilo  that was  half a snarl.  "You hold the best hand of the  evening, corporal," be said. "Tho  luck has turned at last."���������London  Tit-Bits.  pressed  the  weapon  back.  "Take him!" he whispered.

He hastily drew  from the inner pocket of his sabretascho the precious packet: but the  sight of the seals brought a sense,  however faint, of duty. He hesitated and half turned away.  Meyer laughed contemptuously.  Corlieu shuflied the cards, obviously  waiting.  "As I thought." he mocked. "He  will  risk  nothing,   Rame."  Du Gescue turned upon him, livid  with.fury and despair;, and flung the  despatches  upon tlie table.  "You lying hound!" he cried, and  staggered to  the chair.  Rame and    Meyer moved close    to I  CAIRO  A  PERPETUAL  SHOW.  Nowhere Else is There Such Color  and Such Contrast.  Cairo reminds one of an impressionist picture. It is so unreal; the  colors ai-e so unnaturally bright, and  the costumes and the manners of tho  people so dilferent from what we are  accustomed to. Tho scenery as well  as the actors appear to belong to  -another world. -For the- first few  days after your arrival you are satisfied to sit on the terrace of Shepherd's Hotel and .watch .the, noisy  restless, - ever-changing', crowd���������half  Oriental, half European���������that passes  back arid forth on foot, on horseback, . in carriages, oh camels and  astride, diminutive 'donkeys ."writes.. a  correspondent.  Every nation of the earth seems to"  be represented, and tho present  touches fingers with the past where-  evcr you may look. Under the glare  of an electric light yeu see venerable  Arab sheiks wearing tbe samo robes  and leaning upon the same sort of  staff that was used when Abraham  was a boy; and scribes with inkstand  made from the horns of cattle nnd  pens whittled from reeds sit at the  street corners and at the threshold  of thc post oflice, writing letters at  the dictation of patrons whose fingers have never been taught to frame  their thought in words.  Go a block from the most modern  of modern hotels antl clubs, and you  will come face.to face with stately  patriarchal figures in ample turbans,  long vests of Syrian silk and outer  robes of cashmere that seem to have  stepped out of an illustrated Bible,  and as the sun goes down you hear  the call of the muezzin from tho balcony of tho_ minarets, and devout  Moslems ~3rop on the pavement to  pray. Water carriers with the same  sheepskin and pigskin bottles that  were used by tho partiarchs rub up  against English grooms in top boots  and silk hats; sherbet and licorice  water and lemonade sellers, with tin  cans and brass cups, which they clink  like castanets, gossip with peddlers  of post cards and wax matches. Merchants, bankers, - lawyers, solders,  beggars, guides, policemen meet and  dodge each other.  Officials from the foreign oflice and  the treasury,  conscious of their     im-  and      responsibility,     and  the smartest of   modern  portance  dressed in  French tailoring, halt at the crossing to avoid an Egyptian lndy riding  astride upon a donkey with her, bare  feet In velvet slippers and hcr face  covered with a rusty black veil.

Corn Gems���������Coarse breads mado  from rolled oats, rolled wheat, whole  wheat, and cornmeal are vcry necessary daily foods. They keep the  lower bowel in healthy action. People who use white bread constantly  belong to tho class of people found  usually among dyspeptics, and that  other class having headaches almost  daily. If you use coarse or granulated cornmeal take one cupful of cornmeal and hglf a cupful of bread flour,  using the some quantity as given or  ordinary muffins. ';.  , Grape. Fruit -JPrcserves���������When eaten ]  grape-fruits are cut in halves, crosswise, well sweetened; with ganulaed  sugar, and the rinds are then ready  to; be preserved. First, clean out  every particle of the tough, inside  skins. Then grate the rinds edgewise  on a coarse potato grater. Soak  over night. Drain off the water and  boil until tender. Dram off the boiling water also and throw it away.  Make the syrup of two cups of sugar  to one ol- water and let it boil until  it begins to thicken. Add the grated  grape fruit rinds to the boiling syrup  and boil steadily for 20 minutes. The  Havor is delicious. It is economical  and good and keeps indefinitely.  Graham Mush���������With all tho many  varieties of breakfast foods, new and  old, cooked and uncooked, we occasionally return to a dish of plain  graham mush���������the bteakfast food of  my childhood. To he really good the  water, salted to taste, should be  boiling hard before tho-ilour is added.  This must be sifted in slowly through  the fingers and stirred constantly to  prevent i-imps. . If the mush cools  perceptibly, during- the .making,.'.! wait  a moment until it boils again and  boils hard or the mush will not be  so gi.od. Tlie stiffness of the mush  may. be:" .varied to suit individual  tastes. As it needs only to be cooked a few moments like "minute pudding," it is a "very satisfactory emergency dish. -  ��������� Lemon Pie Without Lemon���������Line a  pie tin. with pie. crust dough, prick  the bottom well with a fork to keep  it from hlistering, and bake. The  crust should be ready beforo beginning to make the filling. For the filling, beat the yolks of two eggs (saving the whites_for frosting), with  three-quarters cup" sugar-until-sraooth  then stir in 3 tablespoons' vinegar,  and add 2 heaping tablespoons flour  and stir until thoroughly mixed together; add 1 cup boiling water,  stir well, then set ovei' the fire until  it thickens, being careful to stir well  all the time to keop it from sticking  to the bottom. Now set it away and  let cool while you beat tho whites of  2 eggs to a stiff froth; add quarter  cup sugar and stir just enopgh to  mix the sugar in well. To the lemon  pie filling, which has been cooling,  add 2 tablespoons lemon extract, stir  well, then put into the piecrust.  Spread the frosting on smoothly and  set in the oven, on tlio top grate,  until a light brown. This filling  makes one pio and is very good. Most  people like it better than when made  of tho lemon, as it lias a more pleasant flavor.  Sweethearts���������Mako some nice puff  paste, roll out quarter inch thick and  cut out with'a heart-shaped cookey  cutter.

Chocolate or other icing  may bo used instead of tho first named filling.  pickle after six weeks and drain for a  day or two before smoking. To  smoke use green hickory wood. Those  who like a flavor may add a few  chips of sassafras or juniper berries.  The smokehouse must be dark and  air-tight, except the chimney. This  should bo covered with wire mosquito  netting. The skippers which damage  farm cured meat most often attack  the meat in the smokejhouse. The  parent of tho skipper is a fly which  infests meat houses, but which may  be easily kept out by means of wire  netting and well closed framing.  After smoking until a light brown  is attained, wrap each piece of meat  in brown paper nnd inclose in bags  mado of unbleached muslin. Tie or  sew these securely, tlien dip the bags  for two minutes into a thick limo or  ochre wash, to which has been added  a littlo salt and somo liquid glue.  Tho water used in making this wash  should have been boiled. Instead of  bagging tho smoked meat, it may bo  packed solidly and. deeply in clean,  dry<6ats or chaff.  HINTS FOR THE HOME.  When windows arc dillicult tc? open  rub the cords with soft soap and the  sashes will run smoothly.  For a shampoo mixture make a  froth of good toilet soap, and when  lukewarm add to it the beaten yolk  of an egg and a dessertspoonful of  spirits of rosemary. ,'".',  When the hair splits it should be  cut by a good hairdresser and singed; Have this treatment carried out  at least once a month, and the condition of the hair will soon improve.  .To-keep sponges soft and white  wash them: in warm water; with; a  little tartaric acid in it; then rinse  Jn plenty , of cold wator. Care must  be taken hot to ppt too much tartaric acid, or the sponges will be  spoilt.  Borax water is useful for the toilet.  Make it by dissolving as much borax  as tho boiling water will take up.  Use a tablespoonful of this solution  in about one pint ��������� of boiling water  for washing tho hands at night.  A good metal polish may be made  as follows: Take half a pound of  powdered rottenstone, one pound of  soft soap, and one quart of soft  water; boil all together for half an  hour, and then set in tins for sue.

Importance  of Forests Is    Beyond  Computation.  The rapidity with which a fresh,  brisk wind will dry clothes on the  fine is familiar to every housewife.  Almost intuitively one swings.in the  air-anything.' from, which one. wishes  to have a trace of moisture removed,-  like a piece of writing when one has  mislaid "the blotting-paper. From  the same principle it follows that  where land tends to dry too rapidly,  under the influence of constant,  breezes, rows of trees planted as a  windbreak may prove useful.

Enormous    Supplies  Required    On  An Ocean Liner for a  Round Trip.       ���������  Few people have any idea, said a  leading official of one of our great  Transatlantic steamship companies,  what a colossal business it is to  cater for a modern liner, which it  is no exaggeration to describe as a  "floating town."  Tho Celtic, for instance, has accommodation for no fewer than 2,-  859 passengers, to say nothing of  lier- crew, numbering 335���������a total  population of 3,194 souls. Tho  Kronprin-/. Wilhclm can carry 2,171  people, of whom J,651 are "passengers; while the Oceanic has ample  room for 1,(525 passenger, and a  crew of 450, These numbers will in  themselves suggest something of thle  scale on which it is necessary to  provide food for a double journey  across the Atlantic.  Leaving alone tlie stupendous figures represented by the Celtic lardor,  I wiil give you, in brief outline, some  idea of the mountains of provisions  you would have to lay in for the  voyage to New York and back of a  vessel carrying a couple of thousand  people on board, says a writer in  London Answers. To begin witli,  let us see to the meat supply. Of  beef you should allow 30,000 lbs.,  and of mutton from 12,000 fbs. to  15,000 lbs.���������the equivalent of about  sixty bullocks and, taking the larger  quantity  of  mutton,  A DROVE OF 250 SHEEP.  Thus we make a substantial start,  though our supply is not a pound  too much, to bo on thc safe side;  but, in addition to our beef and mutton, we shall want at least 10,000  Its. of Iamb and a couple of thousand pounds of pork and veal.  We shall have to enlist the services  of fifty pigs to supply us with' 5,000  lbs. of ham and bacon; and, to accompany our breakfast rashers, we  will appropriate part of the 34,000  eggs required for the ship's larder.  Let us now proceed to stock our  poultry-larder with 5,000 bind, of  one kind or another, of which' half  will be fowls, while tho balance will  be made up of ducks, goslings, pigeons, turkeys, pheasants, squabs,  quails, and so "on, the squabs and  quails alone numbering at least 1,-  200.  We. cannot get along without fish",  and of fresh fish of different kinds  we must purchase about a ton and  a quarter, or 2,800 lbs.;, of salt fish, .  2,000 lbs.; and about 12,000 herrings, or, say, twenty-four barrels.  Oysters will be in favor, we may be  sure, and of these we cannot do with  fewer than 16,000���������20,000 would be  a safer ^figure���������while of clams half  the nunio..- r.ill suffice, and to tfjsse  we may add 400 or 500 tins df sardines.     -  OUR SPACIOUS LARDERS.  deep down in the hold of the ship  are now heing rapidly filled; but  many very important contributions  are to come. The bulkiest of them  all and tlio most important are,  first, about eighteen tons of flour,  the equivalent, if it were all made  into bread, of more th'an 12,500  four-pound loaves; and, second, fiftv  tons of potatoes.

Du  Gescue's forehead,was wet with perspiration: his veins stood out across  it, throbbing; his hands shook' as he  dealt by  threes and twos.  "Cards,"   demanded  Corlieu.  The lieutenant's hand was good.  "I  decline,"  he  answered,   doggedly.  "I mark the kingl" replied the  Baron, smiling; and played. The  cards  fell   quickly,  "Throe points to Corlieu," Meyer  cried,   involuntarily.  Du Gescue breathed heavily and  clutehojT desperately at tho next  hand that fell to him.

"Black Bill," tho oldest resident of  Fiji, has died at Lev.ul.a at thc ago  of eighty-Ki.\\ He was born a slave  on a plantation in one of thc Southern States of America in 1817, but  he ran away and got on board a ship  bound for llerwick-on-Tweed, . where  he- called himself William Berwick. A  Berwick whaling ship, on which he  sailed for the South Paciiic, was  wrecked on thc Samoan Islands,  where "Black Bill'' married a Samoan. He left Samoa fifty years ago  and went to Fiji, where King Cako-  bau gave hiin ono of his daughters  in marriage on condition that ho  acted as his interpreter and became  his  slave for  seven  years.  PRESEHV1NG   MEAT.  The old method of pickling meat in  a strong saltpeter brine is still very  generally used by farmers in putting  up their annual supply. This method  produces a strong fluvored, rather  dry and indigestible product. There  is a popular impression that saltpeter is a vcry powerful preservative  und that salted meat will not keep  without it. In fact, saltpeter ia not  a preservative at all. It is n strong  astringent, hardening the meat fibres,  expelling thenatural juices' and de-  crclising the nutritious qualities of  the meat. When taken into the hu-  muii body iti quantity, it acts as a  -powerful'-irritant' to the mucus membranes 'of the stomach, bowels and  kidneys. Tho use of saltpeter upon  meat is unnecessary und undesirable.  A much bettor and safer substitute is  creani of tartar.  To make a good, mild and wholesome moat pickle take tho following  materials for each 100 pounds meat:  Common salt 8 pound.-,, brown sugar  2 pounds, cream of tartar 2 ounces,  water 4 gallons. First boil the water for 15 minutes and then stir in  tho suit, sugur and cream of tartar.  Keop hot until all dissolvedj Let tho  pickle  cool   boforo   using.  Puck the cut meat as solidly as  possiblo in a clean barrel. Place the  larger pieces at the bottom. No  piece sho.nld measure over 0x12 Indies. Pour on the cooled pickle and  completely cover the meat. Cover  the barrel tightly and set away in a  cool, dark, dry place. I'ho meat may  remain in the picl<lo until wanted for  use.   If to bc smoked,, remove   '   where the   natural    precipitation     is | Hems to  add.     Of sugar to sweeten  hardly up to the needs of agriculture,  that extra fresh evaporation,  due   t������  prevalent    high    winds,   still  further  accentuates the difficulty.     In     such  conditions the "sholterbelt," or windbreak,   illustrates     anew    the maxim  that     "a     penny saved is a    penny  earned."  The elTect of thc wind in increasing  the evaporation of water surfaces has  long been known.   Recent experiments  show  that  it is  the samo with     the  moisture of  the land,  and that   soil  several  hundred  feet    away  from     a  windbreak      dries     up  half as      fast  again  as  tliat near    by���������a  difference  not      wholly     accounted   for  by  the  greater shade.    A' lake  in  the woods  will-evaporato~only-half "as "fast- as  oiie in the open.  This is by no means the only advantage of the lines of trees which  form so conspicuous a feature of  many European landscapes. Orchards  need protection against tho gales  that often accompany the summer  storm. Gardens are moro successful  when thus surroundod. Domestic animals, moro dependent than man on  nature's moods, derive great benefit  from any tempering of the extremes  of  boat  ami  cold.  The economic importance of forests  in regulating thc flow of streams is  beyond computation. They prevent  wind nnd ��������� water erosion, and thus  allow the soil on hills and mountains  to remain whero it has formed, a  natural sponge nt the source of the  watercourses.  "It is the amount of water that  passes into the soil," an expert says,  "and not the amount of rainfall,  that makes a region a garden or a  desert;"  ���������    *"- f~���������  -*  A .BORN SCAPEGRACE.  A good mother naturally wishes to  see her own truits reproduced in her  children. Mrs. Babson, said to her  son:  "Now, Tommy, I want you to be  good  while I am-out."  "I'll be good for a nickel." was  Tommy's modest offer.  "Tommy," said tho mother, "I  want you to remember that you cannot be a son of mine unless you are  good for nothing."  ONE REQUEST.  "Our society," said the prison visitor, "is anxious to help you. Is  there anything you'd like us to secure  for you?"  "Well," replied the convict. "I  would like to have permission to in-  from' vent a Hying machine and use it."-  the voyage we shall want four tons  and a half;-of tea about 13 cwt.,  and of coffee at least a ton. The  milk alone for our 'double voyage  would weigh 8,000 lbs., and ' the  jams and marmalade will turn the  scale at two  tons.  I h'ave not by any means included  everything we ought to supply, but  I liope I have given you some idea  of tlie principal contents of our  larder; and on a vessel equipped on  this scale you may safely take a return-ticket for New York, assured  that neither you nor any of your  fellow-passengers will bo in danger  of starvation.   A iter _ gr.asjiing these_ figur>js_you_  will scarcely be surprised to learn  that your vessel will carry at least  1,000 tablecloth's, 14,000 'serviettes,  4.000 knives. 5,000 forks, and,  roughly, 0,000 spoons; or th'at during the twelve dnys you are at sea  a thousand tinnblers and a couple of  thousand plates will probably bo  broken.   4   LIVE FOR ONE DAY ON'LY.  Don't worry. It is neither manly,  helpful, or business-like, and no  good ever resulted from thc habit.  Worrying can be overcome by exercising the will-power. People of sensitive minds worry ovcr Mime trivial  and thoughtless remark, and dwell  upon it till it is magnified into a  grievous nnd intentional insult. Past  errors, antl a gloomy antidilution of  calamities to come are other forms  of the unwholesome habit.  One of the best ways to deal with"  the many real causes of anxious  thought is to bc content t/b live just  a day at the time. With that rich  wisdom which Sydney Smith could  command, hc advised us to tako  short views of life. Each day is an  entity in itself. It is rounded off by  the gulf of sleep; it has its own  hours which will never return; it  stands separate with" its own opportunities and pleasures. John Wesley said he would as soon steal as  worry���������each was equally a sin. And  to worry is wasteful, foolish, and  wicked.   ���������   HIS  GOOD  I'OINT.
