Ho vvas only aware that in  somo miraculous way ho had escaped  death.  Then a confused murmur of voices  reached his oars from far 'above hiin,  and by tho occasional rnttlo of  small stones down the quarry sido  ho knew that ho must hnvo been insensible but a wry fow minutes.  As ho gathered his souses together  a smarting pain in his shoulder, told  where tho bullet hnd .struck. Ho  stretched out. his arms to ascertain  what other injuries had boon caused  by his fall, and suddenly ho sat up  with  n  cry  of horror. "  His hnnd had rested upon tho fuco  of a dead  man.  'It was pilch-dark in that dismal  depth. Purvyn was still in his convict garb, and was without matches.  Alono with this unknown horror, ho  at lust summoned up sufllcient courage to search tho dead man's pockets, and was..rewarded by finding a  match-box.  Willi trembling hands ho: struck  a light and held it to the dead face.  "Great, heavens! Jack! My brother!"  Yos; it was Jack Parvyn, sure  enough, and tho tears coursed down  Sir Ernest's cheeks as ho gazed at  tho well-loved face of his brother.  "How did ho como by his death?"  And then tho convict noticed the  ends bf at least a dozen matches lying by his brother's side, togother  with a pencil, and clutched tightly  in the dead hand was a small notebook. Gently untwining the cold  fingers he took possession of tho  book and road what the dead man  had written:���������  "My    brother    Ernest is innocent.  "Yes, my cousin is dead and you  aro in danger. Tho warder has confessed, and Qioy will be hero any  minuto.     Como!"  "Nay, I will not go. "What is tho  uso?"  "I. have kept my part of the bargain, and I insist upon you keeping  yours.    Como, I say���������como at once."  Ho seized hor by tho arm and  forced hor towards tho Window.  "Stop!"

"But I saw your body carried out  of tho quarry within tho last half-  hour."  "No; .you saw tho body of my brother  Jack,,    whom  you  sent  to   his  death but a few short hours ago."

Thp fellow  thut's financing this game is too  keen upon getting Sir. Ernest out  of the way lo take any risks, especially as there is a lady in the case."  "Well, he ought to be hero by now.  Listen!"  As thc men listened intently thc  faint rumble of a motor-car was  distinctly heard. Gradually the  sound became louder, and thon,  about a milo up the long lane, the  side-lights shono out distinctly. It  was ihe vehicle for which thcy had  been anxiously waiting during the  last hour, and both the warders  aroused  themselves  for action.  Nearer  and  nearer camo  the  lights  ���������half     a  mile.     u  quarter;   then     a  hoarse  cry  was  borno  upon  the  still  followed  a   crash.

"Our bird has taken wing, unless  hois  under .'the'car."  "Then' if he is we've earned our  money, for ho'll bo a.s lint as n pancake, and chare's, no need for shooting."  At "that, moment thr moon shono  out, ami a few hundred yards away  the warders saw a figuro speeding  along the road.  '"Ihat's our man; aftor him."  Thoy both "set olT nt. top speed,  and the hunted man, perceiving tho  situation,   redoubled   his  efforts.  On they went, faster and faster,  until nonring tho Holgate Quarry,  and then Parvyn, worn out by  anxiety and long fasting, suddenly  showed signs of exhaustion. On tho  warders', came relentlessly, gaming  yard by yard, and then arose lho  cry:���������  "Halt, oi* I firo!"  Tho hunted man looked to thc  right and left. On onc hand was Hie  open country with .small chance of  hiding; on tlio other, the liolgalc  Quarry with its tremendous depth of  excavations. Without a moment's  hesitation Parvyn made a leap for  the wall and pulled himself up  Thore was a ledge of some width  running along the other side, whore  possibly he might hide for a few  minutes. As he balanced himself on  tho top for an instant a shot rang  out. ' With n wilil cry ho threw up  his arms and thon crashed backwards into thc depths of tho quarry.

Tho match flickered out, and the  man sat siiont for a fow minutes trying to piece the puzzle together. Thc  chain of circumstantial ovidenco  against him had been so complete  that ho had often wondered whether  it had not beon pre-arranged. With  this message from tho dead in his  hands,* he now understood many  things that had hitherto scorned inexplicable.  One thing was certain. Ho had  miraculously escaped death by fall-,  ing across lho body of his brother,  and for n time at.least ho must keep  his liberty. Tho warders would immediately search tho quarry. , Thc  entrance was a quarter of a milo  away, and thcy could not possibly  reach him for at least twenty minutes.  After a littlo hesitation ho stripped off his convict clothes, and. in a  lew minutes had exchanged garments  wilh his dead brother. Thoro was a  chance that when tiie warders" canto  thoy would not recognise the difference, and, nt any rate, it would  give bin:  a  little   time.  With a mule farewell he turned  to grope his way through tho darkness. He had gone but a few yards  when a lingo piece of stono, loosened  by his fall, crashed down the quarry  t-i thc spot where he hud heen lately  standing.  With an exclamation of horror ho  struck a ligl.t and looked back. The  boulder had fallen across tho upper  part of his brother's body, anil poor  ���������Jack Parvyn was beyond recognition. Weary and sick at heart ho  turned away and stumbled up tho  waggon path that led to the entrance. His onc do. ire now wa.s rest  and .sleep: every bone in his body  was  aching.  Then, half-way up the winding  track, a number of lanterns dashed,  :and he saw the forms of half-a-dozen  m..-n. Sinking down in a friendly  clump of bracken he watched them  slowly file past him, and in tho foremost man he recognized his cousin,  George  Maurice.  In a short time hc was fi.e of tho  quarry and speeding along llU!_j^)ad_  he knew so welJ. Oh, lo be able to  rest for a  few hours!  There was only one haven near if  he could reach it.

Unconscious of tho awful danger  -that threatened him, tho midshipman  Palmer was busied in ordering things  on thc Fclli'idado. Ho appeared to  have dismissed from his mind unv  idea that Sorva and the scoundrels  composing his crew might make a  btrugglo for freedom.  WHICH WAS THE COWARD?  Joachim Antonio * Cerquiera, the  captain of the Felicidade, " as he  lounged about the dock and watched  matters, and smokod his cigars,  could have spoken words that would  havo placed the doomed midshipman  and his men upon thoir guard. Thab  morning, whilo he and Sorva, tKe  commander of tho_ Echo, had boor,  sipping their ' coiTco together and  smoking" their cigars, Serva had  broached a terrible scheme to him.  "I have nmong my crew men on  whom I can rely,"-ho had whispered  to him, with a glance round to soo  that thero was no danger of their  being overheard. "Wo will kill tho  Englishmen and take possession of  the ship. After that wo will bear  down  on tho Echo and regain her."  Cerquiera shook his head. Ho knev  British methods bettor than Serva  did.  "If  you   recaptured  your  ship  you  would     not     escape,"   ho   objected  ."IJjiero     aro     other British  cruiscts  cruisers closo lo the Bight, and   one  of them would fall in with you."  "You1 nro a coward!" cried Serva,  with a conlomptuous shrug of his  shoulders.

The story was ingenious,  but. Serva was a villainous-looking  fellow, and iu the cabin the officer,  while conversing with him, chanced  lo espy a book in which was written  tho name of its cantor, "K. T). Stupart." Thc discovery made him  curious, and ho searched the cabin.  There were some naval clothes, and  on thc deck wero rod marks as of  blood. Tho lieutenant was suspicious  demanded explanations, nnd proceeded to question tho crew*. When ho  came to Cerquiera, he told him all.  .Serva and his crow, together with  Cerquiera, were taken prisoners,  placod on board the Star, and  brrugiit to England.  Tho ill-fa to that pursued the roli-  cidadc wns not yot exhausted. A  lieutenant and nine men from the  Star were placed upon the accursed  vessel to tako hcr to Sierra Leone,  and the Felicidade sank in a terrible  squall she encountered, her crew  escaping upon a raft, on which they  floate'd two'hundred miles awny from  land, without rudder, car, compass,  provisions, or water. Five survivors  were picked up "twenty-one days  later.  CONDEMNED���������YET FREE!  - Chiefly upon evidence of Cerquiera,  the Spanish slave traders wero found  guilty, and were duly sentenced to  death. But the scoundrels were, after all, to cheat tho gallows lhoy so  well deserved to adorn. Their counsel raised questions of international  law, which were submilted to a  Court composed of no fewer than  thirteen judges. In ��������� the end tho  judges docided that the conviction of  the prisonors was illegal; they woro  released, and sent back to Brazil at  tho cxponso of tho British Government! It was held that, there being  actually no slaves on board tho  Felicidade, tlie ^Vasp ha'd no right to  tako possession of it, and that tho  slavers had tx right to try and regain  possession   of  their  vossol     as  May.   be   _ Seen   - Strolling   About  *  -"*" -" 'jVitbT Bandages  On.-   --* '__���������  '"Dolly," "thc 'Colisjiim, monkey,  who was recently an pout-patient 'at  thc Charing Cross Hospital, has now  a rival 'at the London Hospital in  "Sp'otV-'.'a ' small 'black and" whito.  fox  terrier. - ' ,;  With 'his 'many, ,bandages "Spot"  is a  most  pathetic  litllo figure.

It lookod vory much as if Jack  could not say anything. How was  ho to know that Mr. Philpotts was  saying ovor to himself: "Faithful to  his promise, and that's ono for  Charlie. But Jack's quick at figures  and that's ono for Jack. Maybe  Jack's mother didn't toll him to  hurry, so I won't call this delay ono'  against Jack."  Jack was silent so long that tho  grocer  resumed his questioning,  "Is Charlio nout and careful, and  courteous and trustworthy?" askod  ho.  "Oh, yos," Jack at last found his  voice.     "He's all  that."  Someway his words didn't sound  oho bit enthusiastic. Ho wanted  that placo so much for himsolf.  "And quick at figures?'." tho grocer  pursued. "I'm very particular  about that."  "He's" fair," admitted Jack. "Ho  isn't tho best in tho class."  "Nover know him to cheat at  games or do any mean littlo thing  liko  that,  did you?"  "No," Jack replied. You would  havo thought ho spoko reluctantly.  "Anything olso you think I ought  lo  know?"  queried the grocer.  "N-no," stammered Jack.

I'll mako further  inquiries."  Now Mr. Philpotts hnd not put  tho faintest traco of sarcasm into  his sentence regarding Jack's loyalty, but somehow Jack did not foci  very happy, although he hoped that  tho -."further inquiries" would turn  Mr. Philpotts' attention to himself.  Ho would havo felt loss happy had  ho known, that tho further inquiries  wero, to be made of Charlio himself.  -'That evening Charlie called on the  grocer., Perhaps ho was disappointed ' when that. individual began to  inquire about "Jack Willis, but if  so, ho had conquered his chagrin beforo  it camo his turn to spcak.

"1 have my reasons."  Charlie never know, nor did Jack,  but Mr. . Philpotts summed up his  reasons this way:  "Quick at . figures, that's one for  Jack. Not true to his friend,  that's one against him. One from  one loaves nothing. Faithful to his  promise and faithful to his friond,  that's., two for Charlie. Two against  nono is a pretty fair score. 1 guess  I can wait a littlo longer for him  to do his figuring, if he's as loyal  to my interests as he's shown -himself to*-bo to others to-night."

Thoy wont through a  similar performance With this snake,  and on inspection I found that both  fangs  wero present.  The Burmese ,knovv much moro  nbout snakes than the natives of  India, and seldom, if ovor, extract  tho fangs of a cobra or hamadryad,  which Indian, charmers almost always do to their cobras, with the  snakes they exhibit. After a little  bargaining, during the course of  which I rode away and the Burman  ran after mo to accept my offer, the  giant cobra became my property,  and I set oft for my bungalow, followed by tho Burman and the baskot. Havjng arrived there, 3 had  yet to learn tho art of  FEEDING THE SNAKE,  and this my    Burman friond taught  mo  bofore  leaving.  A hamadryad, or cobra, when fust  caught would sooner starve to death  than eat anything. When used" to  captivity;** however, it will feed well  enough. THI thon it must bo fed by  hand, and this is how it is done.  The Burman opened the basket and  seized the-snake by tho back af tho  neck with his left hand, tho thumb  and forefinger' on each sioe of tho  head, tho othor lingers loosely round  the throat. As-hc looked, around  for a bit of stick, I handed hun a  penholder, which ho inserted between tho hamadryad's tooth.

Sinco last spring, when tho first  couplo of blouses of the season camo  over tho seas, showing for their  trimming a umquo ticatnient ot  squai es at handwork filet lace, all  soi ts of clevor ideas have boon expressed in just such work.  Tlien the idea was only attempted  by a fow, because of the immen.a  amount of woik involved in thc making of the medallions, which v\cro  darned, in tho finest of linen threads,  backward and forward until the do-  bign was filled in.  On those first blouses the designs  woro diflleult to execute, most of  thom being some cuuous heraldic  emblem���������a lion lampant, or soir.u-  thing equally impossible to natuic,  but  wonderfully  decorative.  Like eveiything else, easier methods  have been applied to filet work,  winch bring it more into popularity  and detiact compaiatively littlo  from its beauty. The mam chango is  the introducing of heavier thread in  the woi king���������as often moiccriied cotton as the duller linon���������which fills up  tho design so much moro quicKly  that a whole set of medallions can  bc made in tho somo time it would-  take to make ono in the old, finer  way. The effect, while not so delicate,  is very good.  Collar and cuff sets aro tho last expression in duined work.

Materials are inexpensive, the work  is'easy to do, and pleasant in consequence, and results in effective, beautiful trimming for blouse or gown.

Did you want something, Mr.  Philpotts?"  "I wanted a littlo talk with you,"  the groeor began. # Jack's .eyes  sparkled. "To tell you the truth,"  Mr. Philpotts went on, "I wanted to  ask you  about  Charlio Crawford."  "I notice you and ho are pretty  thick," the grocer continued, "and I  have a notion that nobody knows so  much about a boy ns hi.s friends. ������ne of tho Burmans squatted down  Now, I've been thinking about hav- a ������'������w ]'eet off.

When it got  How the Snake Strikes���������Removing  "~    the'Fangs���������Abouflts^Caro5    "  and Feeding.  Having always had a liking, for  snakes, I wont in search of a Burman snake charmer, by name Moung  Lo, in tho hope that he would bc  able to get mo some specimens,  writes G. Stigand in tho London  Field. Almost the only Burmese  word I thon know was niyway, that  is,, a snake, but, with tbo aid of my  interpreter, after a short timo tho  Burmese charmer was prevailed upon lo produco a round basket, having opened which a bond vyilb hood  expanded and about ono and a half  foot of body sprang up liko a jack  in  the box and remained motionless.  Tho charmer wa.s standing near  the baskot. Suddenly tho snake  struck at him by letting its body  and h''nd fall forcibly forward; in  this striko tho body wus kept perfectly rigid, bending only where it  touched tho rim of the baskot. Tho  charmer did not move, knowing that  ho was at least eighteen inches away  from the edge of the basket, "-'and  thoro "was, as I havo said, only  eighteen -inches of snako above - tho  rim. His assistant now engaged the  snake's attention-in^fTont, while tho  channcr deftly seized the reptile by  thc neck end hauled out and deposited on the ground about nine feet of  hamadryad, or giant cobra (Ophlo-  phagus claps), the most formidable  and  deadly snako in Burma.  Then the two Burmans went  through what the uninitiated would  consider the most daring performance ever witnessed. The hamadryad ir.y with its head raised about  two feet, the rest of ils body at  length on the ground, hood expanded and  FANGS READY TO STRIKE.  slipped tho" 'penholder out', Then  vvith the end"-of that"instrument ho  gently pushed the'beef till, tho snake  gave a convulsive swallow," when ho  rammed "tHe meat down as far as the  penholder 'would allow him. It then  appeared as a* lump in.'the throat a  few inches below the fingers, of his  hand., This he worked a foot or  two down the body' with tho thumb  of" tho othor hand. He told me that  ten mouthfuls of this size were  enough for ono meal, and would last  for n week. Small fish wero", also  good for a .change, ��������� andithe snake  wanted water every day.  "'  I next bad a largo airy box made  for my pet, with perforated zinc and  a sheet of glass.. Then came the  rehousing of tho reptile.* Without  having had any experience I was not  going to seize him in tho samo nonchalant way as my Burman friend  On tho contrary, I took good care  tj havo his head under a stick before catching hold of him. At first  I began by gripping him "very tightly, but -I soon found it was not at  all necessary unless, ho wns wriggling. I have refcircd to the performance of tho Burmese snako  charmers as marvelous to the uninitiated.  By that I mean that when one has  had a Iittlo experience of the ways  of this snake the feat does, not appear so wonderful. The first thing  required in. any dealing with venomous snakes is a certain amount of  self-confidence. - If you want to seize  a snake at a given moment, seize  him; do not go as if to catch hold  of-hIm_"and^t_cn���������* " ~  1 DRAW YOUR HAND AWAY.  When you have got him, cliold him  iirmly, os close to thc head as possible. Do 'not get alarmed and try  to get rid of him quickly, but make  sure that" all his body is clear of  you first.  Tho secret of the charmer's success is this���������tlio hamadryad and  cobra have only onc method of attack, and that i.s as I have described  it. This they never vary. iVhother  I(vi"g coilou up or otherwise, they  have to elect a certain length of  body bofore .thcy arc able to strike,  then you know that the strike is  coming an'd ought to be able to  avoid il. If you look at one of  thoso soipents in its box it will rear  up its head, expend its hood and remain motionless in this position for  hours. This snake cannot make a  snap at ono like a viper.  The hamadryad has the reputation  of being lho only snake that will attack mankind of its own initiative  without boing molested. There certainly have bcon many authentic in-  stanves of such attacks, hut I am  inclined to think it is in only a fow  cases that the snake will do this  Probably tho serpent has very good  reason for its fierceness, viz,, that  some one has boen close to whero  the female has just deposited her  eggs, and it is for this reason that  she attacks him. The constricting  powor of' this snake has been greatly overrated, and in point of fact is  practically non-existent.

Stable Government at Last.  There can be no manner of doubt  that the present government of British  Columbia is the most satisfactory and  stable .enjoyed here for many years.  "When Premier McBride formed his  government two or three years ago,  and finally was endorsed by a slim  margin, dire disaster was predicted  for him, especially by his friends the  enemy. And those so-called friends  lost no opportunity to make it as hard  for the piemier as possible, to carry on  the business of the proyincc. From  alpha to omega they went the entire  category of obstacles, but were unsuc  cessful in their desires.  The business of the province was  placed on a stable basis as fast as it  could be done, and there was retrenchment wherever it could be made with  out impairing the usefulness of the  service. The old order of things was  done away with, where all kinds of  reckless expenditures were made without giving thought of the morrow.  Mr. McBride might well have been in  Missouri at some time, for he had to be  "shown." And this lack of ability to  show him the benefit to be obtained  from certain grants desired by'some  parties, has saved the province many  thousands, not to say millions of dollars.     The  government is conducted  on^tnctly~business KSesrfoFthS'first  time, and the expenditures are kept  ���������within the income, also, for the first  time in its history.  Today Mr. McBride has the confl  dence of the majority of the people,  " and many .Liberals are fair enough to  admit this, much as they would like to  prove the contrary. The premier and  bis colleagues are to be congratulated  by all, and the better condition of the  province generally is one of the flrst  results of the policy inaugurated.���������  Phoenix Pioneer.  Mr.  Aylesworth's   Position.  i*-'*���������^"^^^���������  An interesting communication from  Mr. Joseph Martin appears in the  Vancouver World, dealing with the  position taken by Mr. A. B. Ayies  ���������worth who is standing for election in  North York as Postmaster-General in  the Ottawa cabinet. Finding the  pension and salary measure of last  session unpopular in Ontario Mr.  Aylesworth has declared to the electors that he is opposed to the act and  will endeavor to have it modified as to  amount to practical repeal. Mr. Martin very rightly points out that Mr  Aylesworth, in his anxiety to secure  ������Iection, has taken an absurd and  impossible position. He writes in  part: "Mr. Aylesworth has made a  great reputation for himself as a lawyer, and I have no doubt his reputa  tion is well deserved. If these despatches are correct, however, it  would appear that in his practice of  the law he has paid no attention to  constitutional law so far as it bears  upon our cabinet system of government and ministerial responsibilities.  It is, I think, absolutely clear that  when a gentleman enters the ministry  he not only undertakes to become  responsible for everything the government may do while be is a member,  but also adopts the policy of the government which he enters with regard  to past matters, and stands in exactly  the same position with regard to  matters already determined upon as  the old members of the government.  It is also quite clear that no member  of a government is entitled to promulgate any individual opinions of his  own with regard to any question of  policy on the part of the government  of which he is a member. When a  person becomes a member of a ministry when there is any matter upon  which the government have taken a  stand although he may be opposed to  the position taken hy the government, he must not say so, in fact,  it is his bounden duty to be prepared  to defend the announced policy with  regard to all matters of the government of which he becomes a member.  No government could, of course, be  carried on unless the individual members were prepared to give way to the  majority, and if at any time a policy  is adopted by a .government with  which any member thereof finds it  impossible to agree, then there is only  one course for that member to take,  and that is to resign his position. So  also when a person is requested by the  prime minister to become one of his  colleagues, if there is any public  question upon"which the government  has taken a stand and which is pursuing" a- defined "policy_with���������which  such a person is not in accord, it is his  duty to refuse the position unless the  government agree to modify its stand  in accordance with his views. On constitutional grounds and in accordance  with well defined practice in the  British constitution it was therefore  clearly Mr. Aylesworth's duty to inform Sir Wilfrid Laurier that he could  not become a member of his ministry  unless the government would agree to  modify the obnoxious pension system  in accordance with his idea. To my  mind Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his  distinguished colleagues, who have at  present the Liberal party in their  hands, have repudiated and attempted  to destroy all the vital principles of  the Liberal party of which true Liberals have always been so proud.

The Use of Lemons.  A correspondent some time ago fur-  lished the following recipe as a new  cure for consumption:���������"Put a dozen  whole lemons in cold water and boil  until soft (not too soft), roll and  squeeze until all the juice is extracted,  sweeten the juice enough to be palatable, and drink,    Use  as  many as a  dozen a day. Should they cause pain  or looseness of the bowels, lessen the  quantity, and use five or six a day  until better, then begin and use a  dozen again. By the time you have  used five or six dozen you will begin  to gain strength and have an appetite.  Of course, as you get better you need  not use so many. Follow these directions, and we know you will never'  regret it if there is any help for you.  Only keep it up'faithfully. We know  of two cases where- both the patients  were given up by the physicians, and  were in the last stages of consumption,  yet both were cured by using lemons  according to direction we have stated.  One lady in particular was bed-ridden,  and very low. had tried everything  that money could procure, but all in  vain, when, to please a friend, she was  persuaded to use them in February,  and in April she weighed 140 pounds.  She is a strong woman today, and  likely to live as long as any of us.  When people feel the need of an acid,  if they would let vinegar alone, and  use lemons or sour apples, they would  feel just as well satisfied, and receive  no injury." And a suggestion may  not come amiss as to a good plan when  lemons are cheap. A person should in  those times purchase several dozen at  once, and prepare tbem for use in the  warm, .veak days o__spring_a_"d SU-57  mer, when the acids of lemon and  other ripe fruits are so grateful and  useful. Press your hand on the lemon  and roll it back and forth briskly on  the table to make it squeeze more  easily; then press the juice into a bowl  or tumbler���������never into tin; strain out  all the seeds, as they give a bad taste.  Remove all the pulp from the peel and  boil in water���������a pint for a dozen pulps  ���������to extract the acid. A few minutes*  boiling is enough; then strain the  water with the juice of thc lemons;  put a pound of white sugar toa pint  of juice, boil ten minutes, bottle it,  and your lemonade is ready. Another  way to prepare lemonade is the annexed:���������Take the rind off four lemons,  pared very thin, three-quarters of a  pound of leaf sugar, pour on them one  quart of boiling water. Take the juico  of the lemons in another vessel, and  pour on it one pint of boiling milk; let  both remain till the next day. Then  mix the whole together, adding half a  pint of raisin wine; strain all through  a jelly-bag until clear. The milk  should be removed from the fire ahd  used before the froth rises,���������Health.

Rocky  Mountain Guide Claims  that the  Stoney Indians are  Slaughtering    About     5,000  Sheep Yearly.    ,  Jas.  Brewster, of the well known  Banff firm of  Rocky Mountain guides  and business men of that town was in  the city yesterday on his return from  a trip antelope hunting in the vicinity  of Brooks.    He had veiy good success  and secured a few good heads.'--..  - Brewster brothers' will be repre.ent-  "',ed at* the sportsmans'J, show's-in'the  ' principal American "cities thisseastn  -. as,.usual _and woik will be,started at  *. 1, -     -      "** u      -i** S*- *���������       i    " "     t     ?

In pi e-  ** vious  years" their  display of  KocVy  ** Mountain game heads and furs as well  - as the information' f uimshed sports-  men and tourists has had.the'result of  bringing a large number of visitors to  Canada's National^Pai-k. ^JP^Bjewstes,  is already in New Yorlc and'"Jimmie"  will go east as soon as their exhibit is  ready for shipment. He is also contemplating a tiip to the old country.  Speaking  of ' mountain   game   Mr.  .   Brewster, complained  bitterly of   the  havoc wrought by the Stoney Indians.  During a year" he' states the aborigin-  '   es slaughter "probably 5,000  sheepi  There   is  no  discrimination  in theii  '   shooting, rams,   ewes and lambs  all  look alike to tbe Indian and if a whole  herd is cornered up they are all exter-  ** ruinated.     When  an   Indian  gets a  good head he gets about $23 for it, but  . be kills everything. -'When they start  out  hunting  all  they t.ike is a litt'e  flour and  depend on what they shcot  for their supply of meat.  Few guides are better qualified than  he to state the cost to each visiting  sportsman for securing a good specimen. He sets the average at fiom  $1,000 to $1,500. This sum seems extraordinarily large, but he affirms it is  not less than a thousand dollars on the  average.  Many of the visitiug hunters stay  ..out for a long time and do not come  across a head worth mounting and  they will not shoot anything else. If  a man goes out for six weeks and gets  a good specimen he is quite satisfied.  When the ex pei se necessary to make  one of these tripsj is considered it  makes the guide's estimate of the cost  look more reasonable.  As a solution of the problem he advocates moving the Indians further  diwn onto the prairie. At present  the Morley reservation is so close to  the mountains the Indians have no  difficulty in breaking reservation and  going off for a few days without the  knowledge of the authorities. If they  were moved awny fiom the mountains  and put on good farming land they  would settle down to work, for they  are known to be the most tractable of  the nations' wards and are good  workers.  From the mountaineer's point of  view it would be much better for thc  government removed to some other  portion of the Territories than to Bhut  out the visiting sportsmen.  The latter class and all the tourists  who visit the park are enthusiastic  There is no more acceptable  'Xmas   remembrance for your  -distant friends than  Good  Photos  of yourself.

It wns n jocund morning in early  Bummer���������sotuxi livo years after th.-j  events related  in  tliu chapter.  Old Field Cottage wus u perfect  gem ot rurul bounty. Tho Old L-'iolds  themselves no longer deserved  name���������the repose of yours Iind  stored thom to fertility, nnd now  they were blooming in pristine youth  ���������fur ns tho eyo could reuch betweon  the cottage and the forost, and the  cottage and the sea-beach, the fields  were covered with a fine growth     of  clover,      whose   verdure  wns'kind  bluo eyes  af,._c_i_.^      4_      tlt_     _;_!.* *PL_  sweet  most refreshing to the sight. Tho  young trees planted by Marian, had  grown up, forming a pleasant grove  around the houso. The sweet honey-  sucklo aud fragrant whito jasmine,  and tho rich, aromatic, climbing roso  had run all ovcr the walls and windows of thc house, embowering it  In  verdure,  bloom iind perfume.  While Marian stood enjoying* for a  few moments the morning ;hour, she  was startled bj the: sound of rapid  footsteps, and then by the sight of  a young woman in wild attire, issuing from the grove at the right of  the cottage, and Hying like a hunted  hnro  toward  the house.  Marian impulsively oponed the  gate, and the creature (led in, frantically clapped to '-the gate, and  -stood leaning with her back against  it, and panting with hnsle and terror. *'.. .���������"'.'.'  She Was a young and pretty woman���������pretty, notwithstanding tho  wildness of her staring black eyes  and tho disorder of lior long blnck  hair that hung in tangled tresses  to ���������.'���������lier waist. Her head and ' feet  were, bare, and her white gown was  spotted with green stains of the  grass, and torn by briars, as wove  also her bleeding feet and mm"..  Marian felt for, her the ..deopest" compassion; a mere glance had assured  her that the poor, panting, pretty  creature was;.insane.- Marian took  her hand and gently pressing il,  said:  - "You  look very  tired and    faint���������  come in  and rest yourself and     tako  -breakfast  with, us."  The stranger drew away her hand  and looked at Marian from- head to  foot. IJut in tho midst of her scru-  tiii3*. she .suddenly sprang, glanced  around, and , trembling,, violently,  grasped the gate for support;' It w_ s"  but tho tramping of a colt, through  thc clover, that had startled her.  "Do not bo frightened; there is  nothing that can hurt you; you are  safe here."  "And  won!t ho  come?"  "Who,  poor girlV  "The Destroyer!"  "Xo. poor one, no destroyer comes  near us here; see - how quiet aiul  peaceable everything is here!"  The wanderer slowly shook her  head with a cunning, bitter smile,  that looked stranger on her fair  face than the /madness itself had  looked/and:  "So it was there," she said, "bul.  -the Destroyer was at hand, and U> i  /thunder of terror and destruction  burst upon our quiet���������btitl forgot. -  the fair spirit said I was not ..i  tliink of that���������such thoughts would  invoke the fiend again,[' added tho  poor creature, smoothing her forehead witlr both hands, and tho.i  flinging them wide, as if to dispel  and cast away some painful concentration  thero.  "Hut now come in and lie down  on the sofa, and rest, while I make  you  a  cup of coffee,"  said Marian.  Hut the same expression of cunning came-again into the poor creo ���������  lure's  face,  as  she said:  "In the ' house? "No, no���������no, no!  l-'onny has learned something.  Fanny  the cottage,  hei* hand.  Yielding  to   tho      influence  of    the  young girl, poor Funny suffered herself to bo led a few steps toward the  cottugo; then, with a piurcing shriek,  the-**1'10    suddenly   snatched      hor     hand  ro_ \ away, crying:  "I should draw tho lightning down  upon your head! I am doomed! I  must not enter!" And sho turned  and fled out of tho gate.  Marian gazed aftor hcr in tho deepest compassion, tho tears filling   her  turbed���������dark shadows seemed to  sweep, as a funeral train, across he  tace���������hor bosom heaved���������she dropped  tho maiden's hand.  "Why, Fanny, you havo told me  nothing! What do you seo in my  future?"   asked- Marian.  Tho maniac looked up, and breaking, as sho somotimes did, into improvisation, chanted, in tho most  mournful of tones, theso .words:  mc,  beautiful     and  but    for yourself���������  "Weop not for  loving Marian,  yourself!"  Marian, hesitated. It wero vain to  follow and try to draw the wanderer  into the house; yet sho could not  bear the thought of leaving her. In  thu meantime tho sound of the shriek  had brought Kdith out. Sho cam;.  lending her littlo daughter Miriam,  now fivo years old,  by tho hand.  Edith was scnrcclj changed in those  fivo years���������a lifo without oxcitcmctit  oi privation or toil���������a lifo of moderation and regularity���������of easy household duties, 'and ' quiet family affections, had restored and preserved hx  maiden beauty. And now hoi- pretty  haii* had its own will, and fell in  slight, flossy black ringlets down  each side the pearly brow an.;  chocks;; and nothing could havo boon  moro in keeping ..with,the; style of  her boauty than the simple, close-  fitting black gown, her habitual  dress.  Hut lovely as the young'moth.,  was, you would scarcely havo looked  at her a second time while she held  that child by her hand���������so marvel  ous was the fascination, of; that little creature's countenance.. It was a  faco to attract, to charm, to deligh*1.,  to.. draw, you in, and riyet your  whole attefction, until you beenm.  absorbed and lost in the study of  its mysterious spell���������a witching face,  whoso nameless charm it Wore impossible to tell. I might describe the  fine (lark Jewish features, the glorious eyes, the brilliant complexion,  the fall of long, glossy, black rinr-  lots that veiled the proud litt'-j  head; but tho spell lay not in them,  any moro than in the perfect symmetry of hei* form, or thc liarmoniou3  grace of her motion, or the melodious intonations of her 'voice. *  Edith, still leading the little girl,  advanced to Marian's side, where tha  latter stood at the yaid gate.  "I heard a scream, Marian, dear���������  what was  it?"  Marian pointed to the old elm tree  outside the cottage fence, under the  shade of which stood the poor stroller, pressing her side, and panting  for breath.  "Edith, do you sco that .-.-.-youn*-*  woman?    She  it was."  "Good  heaven!"   exclaimed    Edith  turning a shade paler, and beginning  with     trembling   fingers,   to  unfasten  tho gate.  "Why,  do you know her, Ed ith?"-  "Yes!  yes!   My  soul,   it  is     Fannv  Laurie!    I thought  she was  in some  asylum   at  the  North!"   said  Edith  passing  the gate,  and  going up     to  the       wanderer.       "Fanny!      Fanny'  Dearest Fanny!" she said, taking her  thin hnnd, aiid looking in her. crazed  eyes and-lastly,    putting both   arms  around her nock and kissing her.  "Do you kiss me?" aske'd the poor  creature, in amazement.  "Yes, dear Fanny I Don't you  know me?"  "Yes, yes, you arc���������I know     you���������  you  are���������let's see,   now "  "Edith X,anee, you know���������your oil  playmate!"  "Ah!  .yes,   I know���������you    had     another name."

"Well,  then  I  will   bring nn     easy  chair  out  here  for you   to   rest  in���������  you  can  sit    under   the "shade,    an-l  have a  little stand by your side,  to  eat     your    breakfast.    Come;     come  nearer  to  the  liouse,"   said    Mnrian,  tuking poor Fanny's hand, and lending hor up tho walk.  They  were nt  the  threshold.  "Are   you    Marian?" poor     Fnniiy  asked,  abruptly.  "Yes, tbat is my name."  "Oh.    I    oughtn't    to   hnve    con.e  here!    I   oughtn't      to     have      con.e  here!"  "Why? What i.s the matter? C.'oine.  bc calm! Nothing can hurt >ou or  us here!"  ���������'Don't love! Marian, don't love!  lie a nun, or drown yourself, but  never love!" said the woman, seizing  thr young girl's hands, gazing on hor  beautiful face, and speaking with intense  nn'd   painful   earnestness.  "Why? Xove is life. You had as  well tell me not to live as not to  l'ivo. Poor sister! I have not known'  yon .an hour, yet your sorrows so  tench me, that my heart goes out  toward you, and I wanted to brin,-  you in to our home, and take care  of you,"  said  Marian,   gently.  "You do?" asked the wanderer, incredulously.  "Heaven knows I do! I wish to  nuf-e you back to health and caln<-  nrss."  "Then I would not for thc world  bring so much evil to you! Yet it is  a lovelier place to die in, with l������v  iu.tr  faces  around."  ������������������Hut it is a better place to live  in' I do not let people die where I  am.' unless tho Lord has especially  rr!l-d them. I wish to make yo.i  will! .Come, drive awav all theso  evil fancies _r./ let nae tako you Into  ny.  "Yes, I know���������Fanny has hearri  them   talk!"  Sho swept her hnnds across hor  brow several times, as if to clear  hcr "mental, vision, - and gazing upon  Edith, said:  "Ah!  old playmate!   Did  the palms  lie?   The  ravaged   home,   the    blood  stained hearth, nnd thc burning -roof!  for  inc.���������tin-  fated  nuptials,   tho mnr-1  "Darkly, deadly, lowers tho shadow.  Quickly, thickly, comes tho crowd���������  From death's bosom creeps the adder  Trailing slime upon  tho shroud!"  Mnrian grew pnle, so much, at tilt'  momont, wus sho in fee tod with the  words and manner of this sybli; b������it  then, "Nonsense!" slio thought, an'd,  with a smile, roused herself to shake  o!T tho chill that was creeping upon  her.  "Feel! tho air! tho air!" snid Fun-  nj , lifting hor hand.  "Yes, it is going to rain." said  Edith.      "Come in,  dear Fanny."  '.Rut Fanny did not hoar���������tho fitful,  uncertain crouturo had seized tlw  hand of tho child Mirinm, and was  gazing .alternately upon tho lines i:i  tho palm an'd upon hor forvid, eloquent  fnco.  "What is this? Oh I what is this?"  shc said, sweeping the black tresses  back from her bonding brow, and  fastening her eyes upon Miriam's  palm. "What can "it mean? A deep  cross from the Mount of Ven'is  crosses tho lino of life, and forks into the line of death! a great sun in  tho plain of Mars���������a cloud in-tl.o  vale of Mercury! and where the lines  01 life and dqath meet, a sanguine  spot and a..great star! I cannot  read it! In. a boy's hand, that  would betoken a hero's career, and  a glorious death in a victorious field;  but in a girl's! What can it mean  whon found in a girl's? Stop!" And  she peered into the hand for ii few  moments in deep silence, and tlien  hcr face lighted up, her eyes burned  intensely, and once more she broke  forth  in  improvisation:  "Thou   shalt     bo bless'd as  maiden  fair/was never bless'd before.  And the heurt of thy belov'd shall bo  most gentle,  kind and pure;  But thy rod hand shall be lifted   at  duty's  stern  behest,  And givo to fell destruction the heau  thou lov'st tho best.  .Feel! the air! thc air!" she exclaimed, suddenly dropping the child's  hand, and lifting hcr own toward  the sky.  "Yes, I told you it was going to  rain, but there will not be much,  only a light shower from tho c-loud  Just over our heads."  "It is going to weep! Natuic  mourns.for hcr darling, child!. Hark!  I hear the step of him that cometh!  Fly, fair one! fly! Slay not here*to  listen to tho voice of the charmer,-  charm he never so wisely!" cried  the wild creature, as she dashed oil  toward tho forest. ���������    .  Marian and Edith looked after her,  in  the  utmost compassion.  "Who is tho poor, dear croature.  Edith, and what -has reduced her tj  this  state?"  "She was an old playmate of my  own, Marian. I novor mentioned h.r  to you���������I never could bear to do so.  Sho was one of the victims of the  wnr. Sho was the child of Colonel  Fairlie and tho bride of nenry Laurie, ono of the most accomplished an-l  promising young men in the State.  In ono night their houso was attacked, and Funny saw her father an-i  her 'husband massacred, and .he  home burned before/her face!..-.'.-. Sh_  went  mad from that night!"  "Most horrible!" ejaculated Marian  "She was sent to one of the best  Northern asylums, and the propertv-  she inherited was placed in the hands  of a trustee���������old Mr. Hughe.. who  died last week, you know; and now  that he is dead and she is out, I  don't know what will bo done, C  don't understand  it  at all."  "Has she no friends, no relatives?  She must not be allowed to wander  in this way," said thc kind girl,  with the tears swimming in her eyes  "I     shall     always   be her    friemi  Marian.    Shc has   no   others that    T  know  oi now;  and  no  relative,     except       her     young  cousin, Thurston  "Thank you," snid the gentleman,  then governing himself, he bent his  eyes to tho ground, and said, with  great deference: "You will pardon  tho liberty I have taken iu calling  here. Miss Mayfiold, when I tell you  that I am in sonrch of an unhappy  young relative, who, I am informed,  passed hero not long since."  "Sho left us not ten minutes ago,  sir, much against our wishes. My  sister has just sent a servant to tho  forest in search ot her, to bring hot-  back, if possiblo. * Will you enter,  and wait till sho returns?"  With a beaming smilo and graceful  bend, and in the same sweet tone's  ho thankod hor, and declined tho invitation. Then ho remounted his  horse, and bowing deeply, rode oft" in!  tho direction Funny had  taken.*  This was certainly n day of arrivals at Old Fields. Usually week.,  would pass without any ono passing  to or from ,tho cottage, except Marian, whoso cheerful, kindly, social  disposition, wns tho solo connecting  link between tho cottago and the  neighborhood around it. But this  day seemed to bo an exception.  Whilo yet tho littlo party lingorod  at tho breakfast tablo, Edith looked  up, and saw ,the tall, thin figure cl  a womun in a nankeen��������� riding-shirt,  and a nnnkeon corded sun-bonnet, in  the/act of, dismounting from her  great, rawboncd whito horse.  "If thero isn't Miss Naiicy Skampl'  exclaimed Edith, in no very hospitable tone���������"and I wonder how she  can leave tho postoffice.'-  "Oh! this is not mail day!" replied  Marian, laughing, "notwithstanding*  which wo shall have news enough.'  And'Marian'who, for hor part, was  really glad to seo the old lady, arose  to meet and welcome her.  Miss Nancy wns littlo chang*ed; the  small, tall, thin, narrow-chested,  st-oping/'figure���������the same long, fair,  freckled,' sharp set faco���������tho same  prim cap, and clean, scant, faded  gown, or one of tho same sort���������mado  up hor personal individuality. Miss  Nnncy now had charge of tho village  postoffice; and her early and accurate  information respecting all neighborhood affairs, was obtained, it was  whispered, by an official breach of  trust; if sol/however, no.creature except Miss Nancy, her black boy, and  her while cat, knew it. Sho was n  groat news carrier, it is true, yot  she was not especially addicted to  scandal. To her, news was news,  whether good or bad, and so she  took almost as much pleasure in exciting tho wonder of her listeners by  recounting tho good action or good  fortune of her neighbors or the ro  verse.*  And so, after having dropped her  riding-skirt, and given that and her  bonnet to'Marian to carry up-stairs,  and seated.,herself in the chair that  Edith offered'her at. tho table, ' she  said, sipping* hcr coffee, and glancing  between the whito curtains and - tho  green , vinos* of the open window out'  upon tlio-bay:  "You haye the sweetest place and  the" flncstisea view here, my dear  Mrs. Shields; but that is not what  I was a-going to say. I was going  to tell'you that I-hadn't hoarn from  you so long,* that,I thought.! mus1*  take an early ride this morning, and  spend tho day with you. And I  thought you'd like to hear about  your old partner at the dancing-  school, young Mr. Thurston Will-  coxen, a-coming. back���������la, yes! to bo  sure!- we had almost all of us forgotten him, leustwise I had. And  then, Miss Marian," she said, as our  blooming girl returned to her plac.  at the table, "I just thought I would  bring over that, muslin for tho collars and caps you wore so good as  to say you'd mako for me."  "Yes, I am glad you brought then-.  Miss Nancy," said Marian, in hcr  cheerful tone, as she helped herself to  another roll.  "X hope you are not busy now,  my dear." V^  "Oh, I'm always busy, thank Heaven! but that makes no difference.  Miss Nancy; I shall find timo to -do  your work this week and next."  "I am sure it is very good of   you  Miss Marian, to sew. for mo for nothing; when "  "Oh, prny, don't speak of it, Mis-i  Nancy."

On tho supposition that the sil..  is to be filled with corn ohiofly or  wholly, it is important that everything shall bo ready when tho crop  has reached tho proper stage for boing siloed,  writes Prof. Thos.

When tho, silago  is both cut ami shreddod, waste is  pruelieully eliminated, us llio cut  portions of tho stalk uro also turn  into shreds. Additional power is  wanted to make such silago;- but Lh.  addition is not so much us would be  supposed ut first thought, for lho  reason that when tho cuts uro shredded thoy may be left considerably  longer'"thiin would otherwise bo ad-  missiblo. Tho relative waste in feeding corn in all tho past has been oik  peculiar  satisfaction,  ol grain on tho cob until the crop  is _    Tho wny in which Ul0 hijEll,0 ig htot  virtually  or  almost  ripe, it   is    also, oU  is  a i,mucr of much  importance  true that thoro is a period of ma Iur- ' ��������� -  Unless the hi Inge is kept well spread  ; the   distribution   of     the    light and  heavy parts  of  the corn  will  bo  un-  oven.   This   will   interfere  with    even  I settling  of  tho silage and  will     fur-  I nisli     food    not   equal  in its constituents.   Nol only should  the spread-  .    1 ing ba oven, but tho i ramping should  is ready.   It is better to begin while ' bo  carof���������i(  ,uu-    particularly  toward  tho corn is a littlo short of readiness   the   outer   edges  where much  filling is  to  be done,  as j naturally    sinks  ity at which *it nuiy be made into  silage with less of hazard than at  any other period. T'hat period i_  usually spoken of ns tho glazed or  roasting  stage of tho ears.  The aim should    be,': therefore,     to  have all  things ready when the corn  it will bo more than roa'dy beforo thc  last of tho crop is stored. Tho nil  things includo a corn harvester fov  putting the crop into .sheaves, low  wagon or trucks with platform for  drawing tho corn, a powerful cutting  box to cut and shred the corn at thp  same time, a blower attachment tn  convey it to tho silo, a gasoline or  other engine of sufficient power, and  enough help to keop moving on  stoadily in* each department. This,  means that good planning is necessary, and it also probably means  that under ordinary farm conditions  more or less of co-operation will bo  necessary between farmers who are  neighbors. In this 'way the "labor  question caii'-be better"-solved probably^, than 111 any other. If two' or  three noighbors-co-operate thus, additional hiring may* be dispensed  with entirely. Such co-operation*  would not be completely satisfactory  if- each man's crop should bo rendv  for the silo at the same time, ' but  this seldom happens. ' a  CUT .AND SHREDDED SILAGE.  ��������� The superiority of cut and shredded  silage over that which is simply cut,  consists in the morc complete consumption of the silage by  thc stock.    When corn is simply cut, though thc i that  U16  lengths bo vorj     short,   cattlo     will  reject more or loss of tho hard   por-  whero  the     silago  more slowly     and  packs less Iirmly at tho first than it  does in thu center of the silo. Tho  most valuable quality in tho man  in the silo is conscience, ospeciall-/  should the weather bo hot. It is  much hotter in the silo than outsido.  Thc person thus engaged is out oi  sight, and is so far master of tho  situation. Hecauso of these things, a  conscientious man in a silo who  weighs only 140 pounds is worth  many times morc than a man with  a sleeping conscience who weighs 20r.  pounds.  Many plans havo bcon adopted ol  coverings tho silage. None probably  has proved botlor than that which  scatters a_thick, seeding of oats over  the'-" silago,' adds'va few buckets- of  water, and. then- allows the mnss of  greeen food produced to decay. < No  silo 'can bc filled so as Ho remain  quite full, hence when the silo is full  it i.s usually nccessury t'o_ allow it'to  settle a few days .and" fill again.

Ernesto Henedotti, a. young man,  ran a small restaurant and wino  shop in nomo, and iri the intervals  between cooking and serving his customers ho found ; relaxation in making several inventions, nono of which  brought him fame. But the young  man was not impatient; ho bided his  time. Just beforo hostilities broke  out between Russia and Japan, ho  announced a startling discovery���������nothingness than a bullet-proof b-rcast-  platc, vory light and portable,"  which rendered soldiers absolutely  invulnerable!  The Italian  Government,   to  which  tho  invention    was  first  oflcred     by  the  patriotic_Bcncdetti,   refused     to  have anything to  do with it, so tho  inventor  advertised  extensively     his  discovery,  and  as a consequence tho  military  attaches  of all  the  foreign  powers  accredited  to Homo  wore for  once  vory    busy.       They  tested  tho  wonderful  breastplate,-   shooting     at  Benodelti, who wore it and came put  unscathed from thoir volleys, thanks  to "a     .-hainj-mail % shirt!  his. enomies t -.  said���������nnd   .then-  they   reported^ to-    '*  their respective War' Offices.   * "' '.'

Soldiers  can now expose themselves  with impunity to thp'enemy's* firo, reach tho .  firing lino, 'without any losses, , and  deliver  irresistiblo  assaults."     Such  an enthusiastic description could not    -  bo resisted    at headquarters.      . Tho  Russian     Government  ordered  Benc-  detti to furnish 100,000 breastplates  at onco for uso in Manchuria.  Tho young inventor closed his  shop, drank his stock of wine, we  may presume,, to celebrate his good  luck, hurried to Milan and floated a  company callod t.ho "Bonedettl monopoly." A few days later he sign-,  cd a contract with a Uussian staff  officer. Col. Mullor,, hol from fc5t.  Petcrburg, and got 514,000 in ad-'  vanco for the-order given him.  THOU BLK  COMES fiUICKLY.

Dut probably neither country  wished the war to drag on for an  indefinite timo, ns it would havo  done had tho soldiers of both armies  boon invulnerable, so Benedetti's offer was refused and Russia askod to  huve  its $1/1,000 back.

Things came - 10  such n pilch that the polico first anil  tha tribunals afterward had lo lako  (he mailer in hand. A commission  of military experts was appointed to  examine the celebrated breastplate,  and it took lhem a very short time,  to conclude thnt it was a regular  fraud and that Bciie.delti had taken  everybody in and swindled Russia  oul of $14,000 into the bargain.*-  The trial is coming on, in a few  dn*\s .It would bo difficult to foresee what will bo Cue- upshot of ' il.  bul very likely Benodelti will bo sot  free, he will reopen his, shop, , and  devote his spare limo to some othor  equally .startling discovery.   1 -  INCONVENIENT.

When the Gci-  mnn ICmporor was \isitnig tho ancient t'nstle of Saulburg a fow  weeks ago with Dr, Lucanus, chief of  His Majesty's Civil Cabinet, us companion, ho was shown some pottery,  recently dug up, which dated from  Roman times.

When a child has an acute attack  of croup, mako a poultice of linseed  meal and mustard, rub a little oil or  lard on top, then put it right round  tho child's neck. Gi\o tho child a  good dose of castor oil, enough to  make it sick. Many a child's life is  saved through this when thero as no  securing a harmonious blending of  tho rights of Policyholders and  Stockholders. In our opinion this  arrangement is a most equitable  one."  Tho report is likely to bc regarded  as especially reassuring because it  comes from Insurance Commissioner,  Hon. J. V. Barry, who has a continental reputation as an impartial  official. A year ago he was given  tho distinction of being Chairman of  tho Convention of State Insurance  Commissioners. Of late the press  of other states, where the insurance  departments aro less efficient than  Michigan's, has been advocating  Mr. Barry's appointment as National Supervisor of Insurance, should  the United States Congiess establish  a Federal Insurance Department.  ���������<������M^^^4.4-|-M***'W-W-W**'W*^  I   HEALTH  JAPAN'S  GREAT FISHERIES.

HEAT FOR EARACHE.  Earache is ono of thc most distressing ailments of childhood. Heat,  perhaps, gives as much as any application. The' ear may be gently  filled with water as hot as can be  borne, poured in with a teaspoon.  Thc child should lie with the affected  ear uppermost, and after a short  time turn on that side and lot tha  water run out. Sometimes a small  mustard plaster behind tho car stops  the pain It should be left on only  a few minutes.

Eggs aro easier to digest when  slightly boiled than when eaten  raw. ,  Macaroni and vermicelli, on account of their closeness of grain, arc  not as easily digested as light bread.  Potatoes, when mealy, are easily  digested. When close and watery  they are hard to digest.  Bananas, on account of the amount  of nitrogen thcy contain, arc easily  digested.  The sufferer from dyspepsia should  take turnips, spinach, cresses, salads,  celery, lettuce, and dandelions.  A poison suffering from chrome  rheumatism should avoid dried fish.
