Ten minutes out of Ballard, where  the train was running up grade, the  engineer caught sight of a red lantern  being waved just ahead. ~As the  train slowed up two men wearing  raincoats and slouch hats climbed  over the tender "and presented a revolver at the engineer's head.* ' r  * After commanding tbe engineer and  fireman not to make any outcry, the  robbers left the locomotive with them  and went to the baggage car, calling  upon the messenger to open tbe door.  The messeager refused and a heavy  charge of dynamite was placed against  the door and exploded. ��������� The car was  wiecked. The safe was quickly dynamited, after .which the rest, of tbe  train was allowed to proceed. '     ''     '  poor - fcoustfcg^ofe^fevelstoke'sinam-  moth^n^Jj^waesjheard to advantage.

Miners who wish to get  leases should advertise, and claim  owners 'who have claims to lease  should do likewise. People who have  a, little capital, and wish to back the  effort of the miner, wiil have a good  show to do so. One dollar will carry  an advertisement up to ten lines for a  full month.

It. should be designated hereafter as tho "Schwcizcr system," as  Airs. John Schweizer of that city is  tho demonstrator, and tho demonstration is simply a form of physical  culturo.  Tho grafter    in  this  caso was     a  stranger    who    one dny called upon  Mrs.  Schweizer,   representing  himself  os a city collector of mortality statistics, nnd desired to know If   thero  had  been any  recent  deaths  in     hor  family.     Sho replied hcr mother had  died somo    years ago in  Baltimore-,  whereupon tlio    solicitor courteously  thnnke.1  hcr    and departed.

Tho kneo is tho largest and tho  most complicated in structure of all  tho Joints, and by its exposed position it is moro liable than any other  to injury. Owing chlcily to its peculiar construction, itillunimntion of  tho entire Joint is often excited by an  apparently trivial blow or bruise,  and this i.s sometimes followed by  moro or loss protracted impairment  of function. Prompt and careful  treatment of all injuries is theroforo  important.

The clerical looking individual  doubted her ability to do so, whereupon Mrs. Schweizer cleared the  decks and proceeded to get into, action. Seizing him by tho collar and  "the full vof his breeches, she rushed  him through the door, bumped him  against the porch pillars, ahd rolled  him down the stops. Taking a fresh  hold she bundled him through thc  gate and shot him out into thc  street, administering a vigorous slap  in tho fnco as ho went. She then  quietly returned to her domestic  "duties, while the unlucky easy money  man slunk down the street to the  accompaniment of a chorus of gibes  from the women of tlio neighborhood  who had witnessed Mrs. Schweizer's  stunt in physical culture. Mrs. Schweizer not only relieved herself of a  pest but sho uncovered a trio of tho  samo kind to tho polico and aroused  such enthusiasm in tho neighborhood  that tho women in that vicinity aro  now awaiting theso easy money nuisances with hot water, rolling pins,  flat irons, hat-pins, aad other domestic weapons.

Omission of the splint is  -sometimes desirable in order to leave  tho joint more accessible for applying hot,  cold or moist dressings.  Tho immediate application of cold  in the form of an ice-bag or i folded  towel wrung out -of ice-water and frequently renewed, sometimes prevents  tho occurrence of inflammation; hot  applications arc generally ��������� reserved  for the : treatment of the inflammatory stage. : In applying cold, the  ice-bag must not be allowed to remain too long without removal; and  salt must never be mingled with the  Ice. for in that way the skin can be  quickly frozen.  Tlie greatest caution is to be exercised 'in freeing the limb from restraint after the swelling ami tenderness have subsided. Moderate exercise is beneficial, when tho pi oper  timo arrives, but a slight excess is  highly injurious. ' The weight of the  body must not be put upon tho joint  so long ,as there is a possibility of  inducing a recurrence of the inflammation.

ANOTHER SHORT CAMPAIGN  was that, of 1897, whon Greece and  Turkey came to blows over tho condition of Crete. It lasted twenty-  flvo days; when tho Ambassadors of  tho Powers interfered. They presented a collcctivo note demanding  an armistice. Tho negotiations for  peace lasted a great deal longer than  thc war itself, dragging on for scv-  oral mouths. Autonomy for Crete,  aud an indemnity of ten millions  sterling were tho main points of tho  treaty signed on December 4th about  seven months aftor the decisive battle of tho war.  $60,000,000 was tho indemnity demanded by Russia,from Turkey    by  tho Treaty of San Stcfano,in 1878.

The      Hospitals    Crowded      With  Sufferers    From Baleful  Penny Ice.  For four hours on a recent Sunday afternoon and evening the Birmingham, England, hospitals were  fairly besieged. A constant stream  of vehicles kept arriving and discharging sick children. Tho littlo  ones camo in cabs and tramcars, in  perambulators and ambulances.  Many of thom .vero suffering from  violent abdominal pains, and all  wero afflicted with alarming sicknoss.  At first it was feared somo now  and deadly epidemic had broken out,  but inquiries made proved that thoy  were all patrons of an Italian icecream vendor on tho Parade.  In all 45 cases wero attended by  tho doctors. In many instances tho  work of the medical mon had been  made light by tho intelligonco of the  police, who had promptly administered cmotics, (without waiting for  tho doctor.  Parents and ..friends of tho sufferers  became greatly oxcitod, anticipating  tho worst consequences."'Thoro wore  soma noisy scenes outsido the hospital, and then an indignant crowd  went off in search of tho man who  had sold the ice cream. Ho beat a  hasty retreat, which was covered by  tho polico. It was well that a good  forco of constables was on tho scone,  or tho man would certainly havo  been handled roughly.  ~The remainder of tho ico cream has  boon seized by the polico. It is being kept in a frozen condition and  was handed over to tho analyst.  ICE CREAM FOR BABIES.  For a timo tho condition of somo  of tho children was exceedingly ciit-  ical and but for tho prompt measures  taken might havo had fatal consequences.  All tho suflcrors woro discharged  from the hospital on Saturday night,  though many remain under medical  treatment at' their homes.  A striking feature of tho incident  is tho fact that somo of thc littlo  suflorers were mites only two years  old. At that age it might be  thought, eyen the vory best ice cream  is liable to have an undesirable effect.  'Apparently'.tho Italian does not  rely upon children for custom.

TRUE      YARNS      ABOUT      OTJB  FOUR-FOOTED FRIENDS.  A Dog Dug TJp  Carrots and Gave  Them, to a Horse���������Monkey  Divides Banana.  The disputo between thoso who  bolievo in the reasoning powers of  animals and their opponents, who  ascribe evory action of tlio dumb  creation to more instinct, is an old  soro; but fresh facts aro continually  cropping up to add to tlio interest  of the controversy. Hero aro a few  stories of dogs and other animals,  domestic and otherwise, which will  afford food for thought to oither  section of tho disputants.  That dogs aro capable of disinterested friendship for other animals ls  boyond dispute. Professor Wosley  Mills, in his luminous and deeply interesting work on animal intelligence  mentions a dog that struck up a  friendship with one of his master's  carriage-horse*;. For somo timo  carrots were missed from rho kitchen garden, and, a watch being kept,  it was found that thc dog had beon  in tho habit of digging them up and  presenting them to his equino friend.  Now, dogs do not thcinsolvcs ������ consider carrots a delicacy. How was  that particular thinker to know that  ai- present of that natjre would bo  acceptable to his friend tho horse?  If reason was not in- operation thero  somothing -very like it must have  been  DUG UP TnE KITTENS.  A somewhat similar story was  told by a correspondent of tho  "Spectator" some tlmo ago. A  ce-tam fox-terrier was the particular  friend of the household cat. It so  happened that pussy had a jittor of  kittens, all of whom found a damp  gravo in tho stablo bucket. Tho  mother-cat took tho loss of her children to heart dreadfully, and moped  about tho houso in disconsolate fashion. This caused tho terrier great  anxiety, and he tried to cheer up the  sorrowing mother in every way; but  in vain. Finally, a bright idea  camo into his doggy mind. He rushed into the garden whero the drowned corpses of tho unfortunate kittens had boon buried, with busy  paws resurrected them, and carried  the earthly littlo furry Codies in  glad triumph to his distracted  friend. Can this action of tho dog  be ascribed'solely to  instinct?     ���������   -"  Cats and other animals have been  soon to divide food with particular  friends. _ .Thus, a monkey in tho  London"* Zoo was watched dividing a  banana --into- j threo equal portions)  ono of which'he kept for himself, presenting --tho -.others to two' simian  chums.

In this particular instance of  animal friendship it may bo that  tho dog's patience and politeness in  submitting to tho process, rather  than hurt its littlo friend's feelings  by refusing, is quite as noteworthy  as tho opossum's anxiety to do what  it regarded as  a kindly act.  This capacity for sympathy and  lovo of others is somothing of an  argument against" those who insist  that animals aro guided by nothing  but instinct. Another is found in  the capacity of dumb things for  make-believe and play. Who has  not seen a kitten pretend that a  cork or a reel of cotton is a mouse,  and stalk it ferociously? Or a couple  of dogs indulging in mock combat,  growling, snapping, and yelping as if  in tho deadliest earnest?  "KING-OF-THE-C ASTLE. "  ing powder.

"The Road to  Wcllvillc ln each package.  That noted observer of animal lifo,  Mr. J. W. Bembridge^ has recorded  an exciting game of "kmg-of-tho-  castle," indulged in by somo lambs  in a f>eld.. Tho pasture had * been  covered .with heaps^of soawood, und  on one of-lhese-a-lamb took up 'his  position, and defied all comers. "In  a glade at' Haddon Chase, fawns  have beon seen playing "touch'.' as  vigorously and - as understanding^  os children. The capacity for "making-believe" was strikingly exemplified by a squirrel which Professor  Wesloy Mills captured and,shut up in  a cago. The little" animal appeared  drowsy, listless, and as, if suffering  from paralysis, dragging its limbs  after it in a helpless kind of Way".  The observer could only concludo  that-ho had "unwittingly inflicted  somo injury upon tho squirrel during  capture. All these symptoms continued till the third day of-imprisonment, when Professor Mills incautiously left tho cage door open. Gono  in an instant was the protended  paralysis; the artful beast darted fpr  the opon window, arid a flash' of  brown fur across tlio garden fence  was the last that tho naturalist saw  of his cunning captive. - <*.  Everybody knows that form of animal intelligence which is manifested  in seeking tho aid of human beings  ���������not necessarily master or mistress  ���������in matters which the animal is unable to accomplish by itself.-- Tho  simplest form of this is7'sTib*wn .by  the cat who sits mowing'. at the  door to bo lot in; but there are instances of moro reasoned appeals  Ihan" this"; familiar ono. _v  _A monkey in tho London Zoo was  soon to'hand a nut to a spectator  thsough-thc bars, having been foiled  in^his-offorts-to-crack���������it.���������-Tho-vlsi-  tor realized thc situation, cracked  thc nut, and 'handed it back, which  was evidently what had bcon expected of him.  HOW A 'RETRIEVER GOT HOME.  In thc "Spoctator" of recent .dato  a correspondent describes his adventures with a black rotrievcr. Tho  animal met him in tho street as ho  was going homo ono night, and insisted on boing accompanied up a  narrow alloy. Tho man, rather curious to sco tho reason of tho dog's  behaviour, did as ho "was ovidently  desired to do, and was' led,' With  much tail-wagging, to a yard door  at tho top of the alley. This door  was latched but not locked, and, in  rasponso to thc dumb entreaties of  his canine acquaintance, tho correspondent opened) it, whereupon tho  dog, with a joyous bark, darted in,  evidently at home. It thus appeared that thc dog had been shut out,  and had had tho sagacity to seek out  a perfect stranger in tho nearest frequented ��������� street and .induce him ', to'  accompany it homo and unlatch the  door. - ���������   *  Those vcry human traits of vanity  and dislike of ridiculo aro prominent  in domestic animals. A dog "dressed up" by children for' amusement  may submit without a murmur, but  hc looks the picture of misery tho  wholo  timo.  During thc Coronation festivities  in 1902, somo dogs absolutely refused to recognize their own houses  covered with flags and othcr decorations, and went away in a huff. Ono  dog, belonging to a lady resident in  Mayfair, was observed to bo sitting  on his haunches opposite his decorated domicile, and barking his disgust and disapproval.���������London Answers. ,  Ted (smilingly)���������"You remind me  of an old friend of mine."

To thoroughly tako tho concoit cut  of a horso,   thero is  no  bettor     way  than to throw him.   It cortainly requires pluck and   determination     to  throw a  horso singlo  handed,  but  if  done,  your   horso  is  virtually     conquered for good and all.   To do this  put a good strong halter on     your  horso.  tako a strap with a ring   ln  it and buckle it round tho horse's off  foreleg below tho fetlock joint;  take  a ropo eight feet long and tie it to  this strap,   placo a surcingle     round  tho horse's bpjdy;  tako up your position on  tho  right side of tho horse,  bring tho ropo over tho horse's back  from tho off side;  tako hold.of   the  ropo,  and pull  his  foot to his body;  tako a firm hold of this foot, holding  it  in  that position,  then  tako   hold  of the  horse's  halter  with  the     left  hand,  pull   his    head   to you,    and  press   against  his    body  with     your  elbow,  using tho words "Lie down."  Tho    majority     of   horses can    bo  thrown  in  this way in less than   a  minuto,      while   others.      of   course,  might  fight longer.   As  soon  as   tho  animal  has  boon  thrown,   take     tho  ropo that is underneath him, bring it  under     tho    surcingle    and  pass      it  through  the  ring  of tho halter,   and  back under  tho surcingle again,   and  thus you have  tho  rope in   position  to bring his head  over his   bhouldcr.  Make     him   put   his    head     on tho  ground,     and   if   ho makes any    attempt    to   got up,   pull his head up  immediately,   which  will  prevent  him  from     rising.    This    will     give  him  thoroughly   to   undei stand   that   you  are master.      Once a    horso   realizes  your power over him, ho will do almost anything a horso can  do.

Government Town Sites
The Grand Trunk Pacific Company's
choice of a tei minus for tlie National
transcontinental Railway on lhe
Pacific ocean is T-iiiipse.m Peninsula,
on Tuck's Inlet, near Kaien Island.
The British Columbia Government has
sold to the company ten thousand
acies of land, in wliich it retains a
quai ter interest. The land i. to be
surveyed at the Company's expense,
-and the Go\ernmeutielains the right
to make the first choice uf at least a
thou=a_(l feel along thc shore line of
nny land having a frontage on the* sea
or any other waterway. The Company undei take* to construct within
a year tci uunal v\ oik= of a permanent
chnivat-i. the franchise being subject
to foi-feitme in the event of l'aihue to
comply with this condition.
The icason given for not fixing tlie
railway terminus at Poit Simpson or
Kitniiiant���places frequently mentioned as likely to be chosen���is that
the land in both localities has been
preempted by private speculatois.
"Without the railway it is piacLic-lly
worthless, and a= theie is no reason
why value impaitedto it solely by- Iho
construction of the line should go into
the pockets of people who do nothing
to cam it. thcProviuci.il Government
and the Kailwny Company exercised
a wi-e  piovision   in   the adoption   of
topographical relations between (ho
-streets and the railway line, to reserve
suitablo sites for municipal buildings,
including schoolhouses, to provide
ample loom for collegiate edifices
maintained by the Province ami to
set apait grounds in abundance for
public recieation. Tliis will eventually
be one of thc groat cities of tho Pacific
Coast; thc joint owncis should exercise all tho cares, foresight and intelligence needed to make it the model
city of the woi Id���perfect alike from
tlie utilitarian, the sanitary and the
Tiestliotic point of view.
The example set in this case by
Biitish Columbia may piove to he
just what is needed to bring other
landowning governments to :x sense of
tlieir. dut j- to the public. Tho Dominion Government owns the public
lands in Albcilii, Saskatchewan njid
Ma'iiloba: the Crown lands in Ontario
Quebec and New Brunswick are controlled like tliose of British Columbia
by tho Piovincial governments.
"Whciever tliere aie Ciown lands
beside a railway station they should
be lesci-sccl foi the advantage of the
public to the e\clusion of the speculator. Town lots should bc sold at
ieasonable prices to thoso who are
willing to occupy them at once, and
to build on lhem either business
premises or private lesiilences.���Xews-

The last number of the afternoon
programme, a paper on Municipal .n-
corpoi ation Under General or Special
Act,  by Mayor Bat nard of Victoria,
King is Executed.
Fort Saskatchewan, Sept. 30.���
Charles King was hanged this morning at 7 o'clock. Father Jan was with
him last evening for a few hours. The
murderer never flinched when the
death warrant was lead by Sheriff
Robeitson. King did not apparently
feel anyfear of death, lie was alone
with his death watch, as he had no
religiqus beljef.    ���    f,.   ���     "-
Shortly after stiniise he was led
from the guard house to the carpenter
shop ovcr a djiving shed. He was
closeted with" Father Jan when Rad-
cli Ife knocked; announcing that he
had come for him.
���'I do not know what yon arc'hanging me for. I am an innocent man.
God knows Pain an innocent man. I
have nothing on my mind. God knows
P would not have the ciimeonmy
mind for killing a friend."
He was led to the seafTold, and then
stood alone while his legs were bound,
and while the white cap was being
put on, and the noose adjusted.
Father Jan repeated the Lord's
prayer and King responded without a
quiver. The Sheriff stood with upraised hand while the words were
uttered. As his hand fell Radcliffe
pressed the lever, and Charles King
dangled af f_e~encT"of tKeTope;
He was laid face downward in his
coffin, and buried beside Bullock, who
was hanged here in 1002.
The execution was. ths closing chapter in one of thc most gruesome tragedies that has ever disgraced the
King wa.s convicted of the murder
of his companion, Charles Hayward,
on a hunting expedition. Circumstantial evidence purely bi ought the criminal to the gibbet. Two trials were
necessary to land the murderer, and
each time the jury returned a verdict
of "guilty," after being-out but a few
minutes. A new trial was secured on
the ground that the crown prosecutor
commented upon King's failuie to take
the witness stand in his own behalf.

The dny had beon clear-and bright,  and the shurp, keen air had painted  a delicato roso upon hcr lily-cheek,  and imparled a sparklo to her eyes,  which two years ngo they had not  known.  Sho dropped lightly from the saddle, took her horso's noso in both  hands and gave him his customary  kiss, and  then entered the hall.  A hugo lire was burning in the  great firepluco and on tho leopard  skins in front of lt stood tho afternoon tea. In a low arm-chair sat  tho countess. The dark hair was  white now, and the once proud and  haughty face greatly changed. She  was dressed in black���������not satin or  silk, but plain merino. Her only  ornament waa a small locket of  black onyx; it contained a pieco of  Madge's hair���������strange irony of circumstances! The gypsy girl's hair  resting as a sacred rulio on the  bosom  of the Countess  of Landon!  Ireno went quietly across the hall,  and bending over her chair reverently kissed the sad,  deeply-lined  faco.  "Have I been too long, dear?" she  said. Sho called her "madam" no  longer. "It was such a delightful afternoon, and the horse and I enjoyed  the ride so much that I nearly forgot the time and that you might bo  waiting."  "So, no, dear, you are not lale,"  said tho countess; not in thc cold  tone in which she used to speak, but  with an almost deprecating gentleness. "I am glad you enjoyed it.  Did  you meet  unyono?"  "Yes," replied Irene, taking off hor  gloves and seating herself at the  table, "Lord and Lady Balfarras,  and  tho postman."  She took somo letters from her  habit pocket, and laid them beside  the countess' cup. The countess took  them up with a sudden, eager wist-  fulness, looked at the handwriting,  then laid them down again with a  sigh.  "So letter!" she said in a low  voico. Irene's face was bent.over tho  teacups  as  she  responded.  "SoA dear. Hut���������but you did not  expect onc just now. You know that  ������*e said that he might not be able  to write that he was going into the  wilds, where thero wouldbe no means  "'of sending a lettor."  "Yes,'-', said the countes"*, "but  that  was months ago."        ^  "Tliree months and four days,"  murmured Irene,   as   if to horself.  "There has been time for a letter.  During all tho time ho has been  away���������nearly two years���������hc has never  failed  to  write���������until  now!"  "Yos." said Irene softly, "and  that from Royce who used to hate  letter writing!"  "He  hates  it  Just  as  much     now,  but he  writes  that I may know     he  has      forgiven     mo,    nnd   still   loves j  me!"  "Hush, dear," said Irene. "As if  there were any chance of Royce ceasing to love jou! And don't be unhappy or anxious about his silence,  dear. Depend upon it he is away  hunting lion, and tigers somewhere  in the heart of Africa where one  would be as likely to meet with a  postoffice as���������as a bonnet shop," and  sho laughed softly. "What tremendous adventures he must have had,  and what stories hu will tell us!  That sounds rather qu-jer, doesn't  it? Hut I mean true stories, when  he comes home."

"And now it is time to dress, I  supposes?" she said. "Let mo holp  upstairs,  dear."  Tho countess reached for her stick  ���������sho suffered from rh'iunialisin,  caught tho night of tho lire���������und put  her hand on Irene's arm.  "How quiet it is!" sho said,  complainingly. "I often think  should go away, Ireno; that  dull lifo must be bad for you,  aro so young!"  "Oo  away   and  leave  you!"  Irone    with    a  laugh.      "How  you propose such a thing!   I am not  denr;  thore  is  always something     to  do, and tho timo passes " she was  going to say "quickly enough," but  sho faltered. "Don't talk of my  going away, till���������till Royce comes  back," sho continued cheerfully. "I  shall go and leave you two together  for���������oh, quite a long time! Perhaps  I shall go to Africa, and seo how  I get on with tho lions and tigers,"  and sho laughef again.  Tho countess said nothing and they  moved slowly across tho hall. At  tho foot of the stairs she stopped,  and leaning upon her stick looked  round.  "Do you think ho will be pleased  with   what  we  havo  dono���������  tho     ro-  not  you  this  who  said  dare  building?"  she said.   It seemed ns  if'glass high  and throw himself down on tho,  rug  at her foet.  "All right," he said, laughingly.  "I can stand any amount of potting;  it will bo such a thorough change  after roughing it in tho Dark Continent." I . .  "You must tell us ovorything!"  said the countess with her hand upon  his close-cropped head.  "Of courso! And I'll begin tonight, but after tiinnor. I couldn't  toll you how I am looking forward  to tho ceremony; and I hope ypu  won't hnvo beefsteak, mother, for  one gets tired ovon of beofstcak after  living on it for two years. Ah,  thuro's tho dressing belli Do you  iknow I used sometimes to dream  ] that I hoard it, and wake up with  a start, but it was only tho bolls on  the oxen of tho wagon."  "Como up with mo!" said tho  countess. "Whero are your things,  Royco?"  "Loft 'om at tho station," he said.  Then he added in a graver tone, "I  wantod to walk. Como along, wo'U  all go together."  Dut Ireno lingered behind, and- sat  for quite five minutes before tho fire,  looking into the glowing wood. He  had come back at last; sho had  known his step. He had come back!  Woll���������it was timo for. her'to go; tomorrow sho would loavo tho Towers  to pay ono of tho many Llong-prom-  iscd visits, and stay away a long,'  long-time!  It 'was a quiet but very happy dinner. Royco did all- tho talking, tho  two women scarcely taking their  eyes off his bronzed face; and tho  butler and footmen listening with all  their cars, and for tho first time in  tho records of Monk Towers passing  tho wrong things, and otherwise neglecting their duties.  After dinner they went into' the  servants' hall, and a cheer rose as  tho butler trotted to tho table, and  filling his glass bade thcm all fill  theirs.  "His lordship's health!" hc cried,  crimson  in  the   faco  and  lifting   his  nover  for  a  momont  could  she cease  thinking of him.  I nm sure ho will," replied Irone  confidently; "for ono thing Royco  was nover difficult to please, and for  another I think it has all been done  so nicely. In a year or two, when  tho ivy hns grown, no ono will bo  ablo to toll the new part from the  old."  Tlio countess sighod and nodded.  That is  what I want,", sho   said.  A. cheer roso���������not thc cheer that is  bought with money and grudgingly  rendered, but the ��������� spontaneous shout  of affectionate welcome. Itoyco lookod round and patted thc countess'  hand,   for  sho  was  crjing.  "Cni bad at speechifying," he said.  "Hut I thank you with all my heart.  It's good to know that so many  friends aro glad to sec mc, and I can  tell you that if you'vo thought of me  once  or  twico  during  tho  last     two  "Perhaps  ho  will not  come back for] years  I'vo  often  thought   of  all     or  years "   Hor    voico  broko  for     a you.

Irono laughod,  "You seo I should* miss it so  dreadfully," sho said. *-".An as to  Royce not coming back for" years���������"  Sho stopped for she had heard a step  just  outside*'tlM.'_'air door.  For a second she stood",*- hor face  white, hcr heart beating. Then sho  smiled at her own fancy. That could  not bu Koyco's stop. Doubtless at  that moment he was traveling across  an African veldt, and had something  clsu to think about than "tho old  folks at homo."  But even as she moved away the  handle of tho door turned, and a  stalwurt iiguro stood outlined  against tho sky.  The countess.dropped her stick nnd  held out her arms.  "Koyco! Royce!" sho cried, nnd  thc next moment had fallen on his  breast.  Irene became vcry pale for a moment; then thc blood came back to  her cheek, and in far too unconcerned a voice to bo natural she said:  "Why,  yes,  it is Royce!"  He  couldn't  shake  hands   with  her  for  a    moment;   then  he   took      his  mother  in his arms  held Irene's  hand.  "Did you think it was my ghost?"  ho said. "Why didn't I write? Well.  I made up my mind to come all in  a moment, and crossed by tho mail  steamer; so I've brought myself instead of a letter!"  "Let me look at you, Royce!" snid  Hurrah!"   rose     the  Thank God!  hearty response.  , "And      I   hope  wo   shall  still     be  friends  as  well   as  master  and     servant.

Kven after  boing loaded on the car, thero is often delay in gotting them into tho  rooms of the cold storage houses,  which aro situated at a distance  from the orchard. Only the packer  and the storago men know how disastrous oven a few hours ol heat can  be to apples headod up in a barrol,  thus causing thom to go into tho  storage houso in really bad condition  for storing. -.-'���������  With storago facilities on tho farm  all this troublo Is obviated, and it  is possible and practicable, too, to  lenvo thn apples on the^ trees until  they nro well colorod and in prime  condition for ��������� gathering.

Storago on thc farm also makes it  possiblo "to save tho poorer grades  of fruit until the weathor is cooler,  so that thoy may bo marketed at a  prollt to the grower. It is possiblo  to furnish this fruit to a class of  nearby consumers, who could not  afford to buy a better grade which  has been shipped a long distance.  We havo seasons when tho apple crop  is light, and perhaps the .quality is  not as good as it should bo, when-  tho buyer or commission dealer does  not como* to buy our apples at  packing time, but goes somewhere  else where    thoro is  a bettor     crop.

Then'again,', in years of great production, when there is fruit everywhere, of good quality, thero is , a  glut'in tho market at packing tirrle.-  With the "facilities of tho modern  cold storage at hand, the fruit can  be safely held until the warm weathor and other causes havo cleared  thc market of tbis oxcess.  Even if the crop is sold to the  commission dealer at packing time,  the dealer can .put his apples into  this houso cheaply and quickly, thus  delaying tho transporatation until  cooler weather, "or until he has a  market ready to receive them. Tho  fact that the apples can be packed  when the rush is ovcr and more efficient help can be obtained is no  small item. Then it is of considerable moment that evory barrel of  these apples can be packed under  the personal supervision of an experienced and conscientious man.  There are many other advantages  that might be mentioned, and while  my experience is somewhat limited,  it is in accordance to a very conservative line of reasoning, and not altogether theoretical.

' When  they wero supposed to be completed  an inspector from tho insurance company went over them. Ho found  that in a flange of tho joint of the  main "steain-pipo abovo tho boilors,  bolts had been used which did not  go far enough" through tho nuts for  safety. Ife called tho contractor's  attention to the place and ordered it  remediod.  The ��������� contractor bought a supply of  longer bolts, gave lhem to a workman, and told him to take out the  short bolls and put in tho now ones.  It was a trying task. The space  over tho boilers was narrow and  hard to work in, tlio heat was vory  great, and it was altogethr-r an unpleasant place to work. But in two  days, however, tho workman ' reported that thc bolts were in, and the  inspector was  sent for.  Hc looked at 'the flanges and found  three orfour threads of- a holt ~ protruding from tho end of "each nut.  At lirst. glanco everything,, appeared  to bo right."

Thoro is  only ono possiblo landing-place under  tho tremendous dill's; a pilo of Jagged rocks -which have fallen down.  Oftentimes,     for   wcoks,   writes     Mr.  Job in "Wild Wings," thoro is no interval whon it is possiblo either    to .  land or to launch a. boat.

Consul-Ooneral Guenthor reports to  tho U. S. Stato. Department, from  statements contained in German  papers, that appendicitis, or inflammation of tho vermiform appendix,  has assumed the character of becoming more and more a fashionable disease Surgery has achieved great  triumphs in this sphece, and has  curud innumerable cases of tha disoaso. Tho French surgeon, Roux,  however, has asked tho quostion,  "Is appendicitis over if ono carries  hi.s appoudix ln his pocket?" nnd his  answer was not ontlroly affirmative.  From the statomonls of Sir Frederick Troves, ono of tho foremost authorities and physician of King Edward, -iinilar doubts appear. According to tho experience of this  groat expert,  FAILURES MAY OCCUR,  which ho troats in two groups. On  tho one hand, the operation may  result only in relief or an incomplete  cure; on tho other hand, complications are to be feared which do not  depend upon the surgical intervention. Only the surgeon is concbrned  to    study    tho details of the deduc-  to  foot open lobster boat, accompanied  by a young nativo sailor.  It was half past nine, undor- tho  last fading rays of tho day and tho  silvery light of tho welcome moon,  whon tho groat, stately clilis at last  towered abovo us, and tho sea-birds  scroamed and issued forth to meet us  in  clouds   of  ghostly   forms.  A form hurried down tho ladder,  and a lantern waved from tho pile of  rocks, signaling to us where to mako  tho venture.  Calm as was tho sea outside, somo  surf was rolling in upon llio lodges.  Wo must run the gauntlet and tako  our chances; thero coultl be no backing out now. A sudden concussion  almost threw us off our foot; wo had  struck a submorgod . rock. Thon a  following wave picked us up and  hurled us against tho pile. Wo leaped  out  and   hold  tho -boat     against  dangers which mny follow an operation. For tho patients, it must be  stated that nn operation remains the  pro-eminent rerticdy, if not the only  ono, from 1 which a completo curo ls  to bo expected.  Dr. Pond of Liverpool has advanced a now theory with roforenco  to tho origin of- appendicitis and  other disturbance of thc digestive  organs, in The Lancet. He calls attention to the fact thttt such ailments can often be attributed to an-  timonial poisoning, and thn source  of tho antimony taken up by man is  said to bo the rubber rings which'  aro  frequently  usod  to  closo  ALL SORTS OF BOTTLES.  Dr.  Pond    has established  tho     fact  that such     rings  consist  of     almost  one-third    thoir weight of antimony. ,  Tho  antimony  is  not  only  dissolved  the undertow," and with mighty cf- I by tlie mineral wators, containing al-  forts, hclpod bj succeeding waves, I kalles and organic acids, but these  got  it  up  a  fow  feet  farther.

Skims Along Surface of the Water  ,* ' at a' Good Speed.  Tho fact that a stono can skim tho  water if its flat surface'strikes  squarely has recently been put - in  practise in tho construction of 'a  sliding boat by a French inventor,  M. do Lambert, 'fhe friction which  i9 prosont when the do Lambert boat  slides over tho water is very slight,,  and the power which is necessary "in  order to make the boat glide is not  high. Whon lho boat is at rest it ia  supported by floats.  Tho boat constructed by-M. do  Lambert has a 'total length ,"of 20  feet,", with a width of -10 fe'ot '" be-"  tween * tho, inclined rplanos upon 'which  it ' slides. The boat has paral'lol  floats resembling certain Asiatic  canoes'. * The two floats*aro very  narrow nnd aro united by cross-  pieces, partly of wood and-parlly of  aluminum, a metal which has been  used-to-a'-large-extent-in^tho���������.construction of the boat because of its  slight weight.  Thc motor used is a 12 horsepower, but the essential parts of the  boat are fixed sliding planes, adjusted under tho boat at carefully  regulated distances from'each other.  Theso planes, which are made of  wood, arc immersed to a depth of  sovcral centimeters when the boat  is nt rest, and they are inclined at  an angle which has been decided upon after-wide experimentation. The  total weight of the boat is about 1,-  200 pounds, but In order to movo  this weight it roqulres a motor of  only 13 horso power, while in tho  case of automobile boats the motors  requirod are 60, 80, und, even 300  horse power.  M. Bollot says that M*. de Lambert's boat has been timed b.v official chronometers, and that the results have heen surprising. When  the motor is started tho boat commences to move wilh tho pianos still  submerged, cutting the water horizontally. But this lasts only'a  short time; the planes show nn in-'  stanlanoous tendency to rise, and  they are practically'on the water at  tho end of a few meters.

Tho younger man sat with ouo  elbow on tho tablo, nervously stroking tho back of his head and turning  his eyes restlessly ut.lha different objects in the cosy little parlor.  "I mn'glad I spoko to you first,"  ho said, thoughtfully, aftor a long  silence.  "Yes-." Mr. Mack pushed tho board  away, and turning round In his chair  crossed his legs. Tho movement was  vigorous and suggested ho was" out  of patience with something. "I am  glad, too, George for if sho had  said 'yes,' as sho might'have done,  and I had had to say 'no' to both  of you, I should have liked it even  less than I liko having to say" it to  you alone."

You' may put it  down to my selfishness if you like;  so much tho better if you do, my  boy. But, no, I don't want you to  think that. I couldn't bear-to lose  her; my life wouldn't be  breath without her.-- But it isn't  that, for I love her above selfishness,  and hcr happiness has been my single  aim since her mother died liftcen  years ago."   ,       .     ���������  "  "Oh, I'm quite sure that .in.refusing me you appreciate that���������that���������  well, it's a bit of a blow to mo,'J  said.

"Not going?" she saul.  "Yob, I must go now, Miss Mack-  it is later than .you think."  Mack relieved tho farmer's embarrassment by pressing him to come  again  tho  following  day.  "Father, what havo you been saying to him?" Baid Jtosalic, as Mack,  having shut the front door, put his  arm around her and led her back to  tho parlor.  "Nothing, my child���������nothing."  She sat down and looked into tho  fire,  whilo ho filled his pipe.  "I don't expect you to tell mo  even white libs, daddy," sho said,  tenderly, going lo him as he sank  into his chair and kneeling by him.  "His manner and his voice changed  utterly whilo I was upstairs."  "You attach too much importance  to trilles "  "They aro not trifles, daddy," sho  snid, very g.ntly. "Or, if they are,  life is mado up of trifles. Tell' mo  truly, did he ask you for me, and  did you say 'no'?"  "What makes you think such  strango things, Rosalie, darling?" he  asked, glancing at hcr keenly.  "You must not say "no,' daddy,"  sho said, waving his question away  and pursuing hcr own ideas. "If he  hasn't asked'you yet, he will one  day; and jou must say 'yes,' daddy  ���������you must say 'yes.' " -  "Tut, tut. Rosalie! You are only  a child; there is plenty of time for  you to think of marriage."  "Tho   only  time  for   me  to    think  of it is when he asks me-^only then."  "And    since ho   hasn't asked you,  thc time has not arrived," he   said,  rather gruffly.  "Hut has he asked for your    con-  .    sent?"     she     inquired,     not   to   be  /__._ evaded.

Burton thanked him heartily, but  failed to fully appreciate his significant words in striving to guess tho  meaning of his strange maimer.  ���������"You have told me that your family has boen heie, in this very house,  for livo generations?" said Mack,  leaning on the table between them.

"Why, yes I "Would the stain be on her  innocent hand?" Burton answered instantly, a touch of tenderness in his  tone.  "I'm satisfied," said Mack, squaring his shoulders and the eager look  fading from his face. "Don't ask  eny-qucstions now; I'll tell you in  my own time."

This remedy is said to be as ofBca-  cious as any ot the compounds sold  now-a-days to whiten the skin, and  is far cheaper.

Jellies are all made alike after  the juice is obtained. This is boiled  20 minutes, the sugar is then added, - and as soon ns it is entirely  dissolved -the-juice m_y be poured  into tho ^ glasses. The following  points, if carefully observed will do  much  to  prevent poss'Ul.i failure:  The sugar should be heated before  being added to the juice.  The "20_ minutes" should be counted after the boiling begins.  The boiling should bo brisk, but  not violent.  There is no need of skimming until  just beforo pouring the jelly; it is  wasteful.  Cook about IJ pints of juice at a  time; never more than 2 pints.  Nearly all jellies are improved in  flavor by the juico of a "lemon to  each pint        '   '  Crab apples, which should be cut  up, wild plums and the dry fruit aad  the parings, cores and seeds from  quince, and apples must be almost  covered with water and boiled until  soft to obtain the juices. Berries  need no water, but should be slowly  heated until all their juice is freed.  Grapes just turning are better  than ripe ones for Jelly.  Jelly bags for straining the cooked  fruit must always bc scrupulously  clean.   .      .

He's burdened with an optimistic appetite aad i% pessimistic digestion^  Tho pages of history tell over and  over again the story of great women  gamblers. France has furnished tho  greater number of these, but England has put forth many whoso fame  has become international, says the  Liverpool Mercury.  There seems to be something in tho  blood of French women that makes  them gamblers of a high order. Mmo.  de Montcspan won so much at basset, her favorite game, that Louis  XIV. was delighted and borrowed  some of hcr winnings. But sho lost  a great deal at times, and her play  grew so furious that in 1682 Louis  abolished the game-  It is recorded of madame that she  one night, while the King looked on -  at the Play, risked a sum equal to  ������40,000 on a single card, and that  the King grumbled when no oue  could be found to cover the bet. But  madame also lost one New Year's  night 700,000 crowns at hocal and  on another night almost ������200,000  at the same game.  Mme. du Barry was the most famous woman gambler of the time   of  Louis XV., but with her it was only,,  a pastime.   But that other favorite,  "  Mme. de    Pompadour, went in   with*  thc  sole  object  of     winning,   if     she  could.   It is recorded that her winnings   were  enormous,   and  that  in  a '  single night she eased the pockets of  the King of 26,000 louis d'or.  Queen Marie Antionotte, according  to history, was a gambler who liked  to be surrounded bj gamblers. Faro  was the popular game, but the stakes *  got to be so great that many a  nobleman had his entire estates  wiped  out ,  IN A SINGLE NIGHT. '"  Scandal rose high and the game  was forbidden. Nevertheless, in a  short time it was being carried on  again, not only in the, apartments of  tho Queen, but at the houso of the  Princess de Lamballe..  At first the Queen and those who-*  desired to play with her went to the  apartments of' Mme. de Quemene. A  whose house is credited with having ", ,Bt.,  been tho scene of the highest contin- ,. j*1 ���������>���������.,*?���������������$?  ued play of any ln France. But mat- '.���������*s; ���������N-Jkijff  ters got so bad before the'end came '"^'SlJjM  that noblemen would no longer play ���������-P^'WMM  with the Queen, and she admitted "to yij Jr������Wk  her table many common gamblers.' '���������^���������^H'SI  Then the scandal broke in full force i^-K^psf  for some were caught cheating, and'-U^S-S^*^  one was arrested for picking "a pA-' ���������atK<L  Po<*et. ,  *;���������"- '-.T4'-i'kv������lt  Possibly the most famous (womaaJ ".^ Ao-fiAt)  gambler of English history "'was Nell 'jj'jP %~&{t$jgfi  Gwynne, the actress, who was-" so "-'^. .*-." *--___  great a favorite with Charles'"H.' In  that reign the manners were 'much  the same as they were at the French  court. Nell Gwj'nne lost' ������5,000 'to  her rival the Duchess of Cleveland,  and in one year lost upward of ������60,-  000, which tho King paid. There  had never been known so much gambling among women as was carried  on in that reign. After the Duchess  of ^Jazarin", niece of the Cardinal,'  had lost "������1,000,000, she died in absolute want. The acknowledged  queen of American women gamblers  was Lonna Paquita, who was born  in Texas fifty years ago, but early  went into Mexico to rule over outlaws and cowboys. Tbe little Lonna  was scarcely 12 years of age whon  she fell in, with on eld time gambloc  named Qualetor, who taught her  every trick known to the gambler's  art. She made her flrst appearance  in Paso del Norte. She was only a  child  and the rough gamblers  LAUGHED  AT HER.  But thcy    soon   found   that     they  were no match for her, and then even  her  teacher,  Qualetor,  was a tender-'  foot compared with the child.    With  the     passing   years    Lonna Paquita'  grew' to  be a beautiful  woman.  Her  hair was as black as night,-sho had  eyes .that  confounded   those  of     the'  gamblers who played with her an'd a  voice as s*ivj������tj:an^jil\^a^r_as__a_bel!._  She  was-as  handsome  a  woman    as  one could  wish  to sec,  but with     a  heart of ice and nerves of iron.   Hcr  small   white  hands ��������� could manipulate  the cards with a skill    that    defied -  thc wachfulness of the koenest gambler.  Thore    were     many     people"   who  thought it was mcrclj  luck that followed hcr, but the luck kept up   too  long, an'd the gamblers who knew a  few    tricks     themselves     understood _  tbat it was art.   Still, no onc   was '  ever  known to  catch   hcr   cheating. "  Before   shc   was 20    Lonna .Paquita  was in New Mexico leading a   gang  of the worst characters of thc Southwest.  Her  death occurred  in  1875,    and  was tragfc.   Some  lawless  acts  had  been committed by a body of greas- '  ers,  and  search  was  made for them.  Lonna Paquita was found to bc their  leader,   and  was caught.      Shc only  laughed   when she   was    taken,  and  proposed  that  a game  of cards    bo  played to  see whether shc should go  free or kill herself.   This was agrc������4 ���������  to, and one of thc party, a gomblo^'  known   to  tho  country  around,    was  selected.   The    woman   lost.     .Those  who looked on had scarcely timo   to  understand this when Lonna Paquita  drew      a    knife    from   her bolt and  plunged it into her heart.  8m  :jm  -   '** _TJ * .
