It is not a correct picture, It is,  only an outline with ull tho details  blotted  out.  (Jreat Urilain owes more to her  Viceroys of India that sho she has  over realised. Thoir history is bound  up entirely with tho history of India. Wo look to tho magnificence of  tho position and ignore the eternal  anxiety and tho woarisomc isolation  ot, the  Viceroy's  daily life.  Whatever happens in tho hugo country, with its many peoples, its many  religions and degrees of civilisation,  its poverty, its disease, its rebellious  spirits, hc, officially, is held responsible, To him all oyes are turned  both in India and at home���������to be  blamed for all disasters, to bo ignored when praise should bo bestowed,  True, tho Viceroy has a council and  other officials, but whatever they do  reacts on him. Ho is alone responsible. Real companionship- is out of  tho epiestion for him. Socially and  officially ho must keep apart from  his  countrymen  FOR FEAR OF JISALOUSIES.  In Great Britain tho statesman  makes __ his peace with ono of two-  gredt parties, but in India there are  many parties and many nationalities.  ,Tho Viceroy has to satisfy them all.  Tho" problem of the Feudatory  States, tho real welfaie of the natives, tho rights and privileges of  Britishers in India, tho far-reaching  interest of the Aimy, both Indian  and British, the ever-growing enter-  priso of commerce���������these - are the-  strings of Stato which <aro in the  Viceroy's bauds to pull or relax.  Whatever action ho takes ho is certain to bc condemned by the man  whoso  opinion  is  dilferent.  Such i.s a glimpse of the lot of a  Viceroy of India. It is not meant  to bc an eulogy or apology for any  holder-of that grcut office.

He was succeeded by Loid  Elgin, and, a year later, by Lord  Lawrence, whoso administration was  marked by the Bhutan War and by  the.-terrible Orissa famine of 1866.  Lord Mayo, the next- Viceroy, was  assassinated while visiting tho convict settlement in the Ardamans, and  it was* during Lord Northbrook's  tenure of oflice that the King, thon.  Prince of Wales, visited India and re/  coived a loyal welcome every libera.  Yet Lord Northbrook has not only  to contend wilh the deposition of the  Gaekwar of Baroda for misrule and  disloyalty, but a famine raged -in  Bengal," as did ono of a most terrible  kind in southern India during Lord  Lytton's  administration. '  Tho third Burmese War, by which  Upper Burma, with tho Shan States,  wns added to tho Empire, occurred  during the Viceroyalty of the Marquess of Dufferin, whilo the northwestern frontier of Afghanistan was  delimited and tho frontier of India  sti*engthened_in_tho.aame_period.^His_  successor, tho Marquess of Lansdowne, continued Lord Dufferln'e  policy of strengthening., the army  and extending and .consolidating British influence on the frontier. An  outbreak in Manipur, where sevo.'al  British officers wero murdered, was  suppressed, is another item out of  many events which disturbed tho  peaceful ruling of India during this  period. ��������� '*"  Tho Viceroyalty of tho Earl of Elgin was full of events. In 1895 a  largo military expedition had to be  sent to relivo tho garrison at Chi-  tral. . In-1807 tho tribes along tho  whole border from Chitral to Beluch-  istan roso against British arms,  while tho same year  PLAGUE  AND  FAMINE   .  ravaged an area of 570,000 square  miles, and an earthquake devastated  Assam.  That brings us to 1899, the year in  which Lord Curzon began his tenure  of office. Twice he has been- called  upon to dispatch troopB from Tndia  ���������8,000 British soldiers being sont to  South Africa -in 1899, and 20,000  nativo  troops  to   China  in  J 900.  Lord Curzon has had to face one  of tho worst famines on 'record. , The  loss through this has boon estimated  at ������250,000,000, while it al'.octod  85,000,000  people.  His spare moments Lord Cur/on  has devoted to appointing important  commissions of inquiry on iriiga-  lion, -railways, universities, agricultural banks, and police, while frontier administration, tho reorganisation of tho- Army, and a thousand  other matters have roquirod serious  and careful attention.

The eye of the law is remaikably  keen nowadays. A few weeks back  a man was brought up at the Central  Criminal Court who found himsolf  in tho dock mainly through a cobweb, says London Answers. A detective had been attracted to pay him  peculiar attention by tho fact that,  fashionably attired, he was walking  down the street with a mass of cobwebs on tho elbow of his frock-coat.  Tha news received later that a robbery had been-effected at a wine merchant's oflico in the neighborhood  suggested tlie question whether thero  wero in the cellars, .where the thief  might have concealed himself," cobwebs of tho same description. Thero  were, and tho immaculately dressod  man will in future probably take a  clothes-brush with bim when engaged in like pursuits Hc will not need  one, however, for over two years.  "It is thn lillle thing that catches  tbo criminal." declared M. Mace, the  great head of tho Paris police. He  caught a criminal named A vinet by  a scent Jtho offender used. Tho crime  was a, terrible 0110���������thc murder of a  lady for hcr jewels and certain bonds  in her.possession Tho lady was discovered lying upon tho floor of hor  room dead.  SHE VAD BEENT STRANGLED     -  N'o ono had been seen going in or,  departing from hcr rooms. There appeared to be no clue. The unfoitun-  uto lady had evidently been suddenly attacked while engaged in friendly  conversation with a visitor, for a,  bottle of wmc and two partly filled  glasses stood upon tho table 'A  handkerchief���������a lady's���������was on tho  floor beside her It was at once assumed that tbo handkerchief was madamo's, and that it had fallen from  bor hand. But it wus scented, and  no one had ever known madame to  uso that peculiar scent. ***  Mace came to tho conclusion that  it belonged to tho murderer, and  tbat the assassin was a man of effeminate and dandyish habits What  man was there likely to commit that  enmo who used such' a scent, an'd  preferred not to bulge his pocket out  with a handkerchief which was larger,  than a lady's? ^ Within four days  Mace had found his man. "It was tbe  scent that led to his head falling ~<  into if. Pcibler's basket.

The teeth ofthe dead    man  were shown to������exactly   fit into     the ���������*  marks,  and  thc '        ,  PRISONER WAS  CONVICTED.  The mystery surrounding the death  of a great Continental banker** was  cleared by means of aT cigar-holder  found in the room with the body.  N'o one could identify the holder. No  ono had ever seen the banker using  it. But in the holder was a small  pieco of unconsumed cigar-end. Experts pronounced it a cigar of the  finest quality���������ono which only a person of wealth could afford to purchase This evidence appeared ' to  confirm the notion that the cigar-  holder had belonged to the dead  plutocrat.

While out on a hunting trip recently  H. A. Ci'ofton of this city came across  some fossilized remains that have set  a number who have seen them wondering, From the few specimens at  hand it is impossible to make a surmise as to what species of extinct  monster the animal belonged, hut the  size must have been enormous.   .  The find was made in Dead Lodge  canyon and the direction nf JMr. Orof-  ton was directed by some of the original bones projecting from a cutbank-  Investigation showed them to be embedded in a sandstone formation and  it was necessary to obtain tools and  put in some hard work before the remains were even partly uncovered.  Work was started in from the bank  and the developments were watched  with great interest. Their natural in-  quisitiveness turned to amazement as  the size of the remains developed to  mammoth proportions. When the  excavation proceeded far enough a  large portion of the remains of some  extinct monster were revealed.  Owing to the difficult nature of the  ���������work it was not found possible to uncover more than a small portion of the  remains, but the vertebrae and ribs  were uncovered.  According to Mr. Crofton's word lhe  backbone is as large as a man's body,  and the portion exposed is about seven  feet in length. Attached to the vertebrae were eight ribs of enormous  size, measuring thiee or four feet in  length, some of them a foot or so in  ���������width. There has been no further  time for further investigation, but  three of the fossilized bones have been  brought in by the discoverer.  They are all broken, but can be  easily fitted together. As to what  portion of the body of the animal they  are from is purely conjecture. Judging from appearance, one which is  broken into three pieces is probably a  section of the tail. It is ubout ten  inches in diameter and four inches  thick. Through the centre is an opening which possibly contained the spinal cord. Another, which is also broken  has the appearance of having been  connected with one of the joints. One  large piece, thc only one which is  ���������whole, looks as though it was a hoof  at one time.  This is principally guess work. But  anyone is at perfect liberty to exatn-  Jpe the specimens and have their guess  too, and if there opinion  is different  there will be no cause for argument.  A bone which had the appearance  of a thigh bone has been forwarded to  authorities in the east for examination  and their opinion will be awaited with  interest. If the remains are all recovered and in fairly good condition, Mr.  "Orofton has made a discovery which  should be of value and interest to  scientists.  Dead Lodge canyon, ivhere the discovery was made, is one of the most  weirdly interesting places in the Territories. It is situated between 22 and  25 miles northeast of Banlry, on the  C. P. B. main line, which is its nearest  point from the railway, aud on the  banks of the Bed Deer river.  No more appropriate place could be  imagined for thc recovery of the evidences of pre-historic days, for nature  has played sad pranks jn .the convulsion of naturo which formed the canyon. The canyon itself is about seven  miles long by three wide, and around  it is some of the best grazing land iu  the west.  ' A spring creek runs down the canyon, which is bordered by a little  scrub, but feed is scarce' and the canyon is nearly all sand. Probably less  is known of this particular portion of  the west than any other so closo to  civilization. Thc sweep of the wiuds  through the defiles has formed the  loose sand iuto fantastic shapes. Some  are fashioned after the modest tepee,  while in other cases the fac similie of  a ruined castle greets the eye of the  adventurous explorer.  These fantastic obstructions greet  the visitor at every point and in the  maze it is difficult for a person who  enters the canyon for any distance to  retrace his steps unless well acquainted  with the ground. Precipitous cut  banks rise on either side of the ravine  and during a windstorm the roar is  who  A million   Homes   and   Business   Blocks   will   be  erected in thc "Last Great West" in less than Five Years.  ������<  Jhe jfdair Manufacturing Company  Will Compete for a Portion  of this  Business  To establish Manufacturing* Plants they arc seeking  Capital and are putting on the market  30,000 Shares, 50c per Share  SOUND,   SAFE   INVESTMENT  Save Your Money and purchase a small Block of  this Stock ancl look for BIG RETURNS in a few  few years.

There are many Indian legends connected with the spot, and stories are  told of braves who foolishly ventured  within its portals and never returned.  There is a possibility that tliere is  more truth in this than in most Indian  stories. The few who have explored  the canyon say there are many traps  to calch the unwary.

" The News-  Blown- Into the Air  Seattle, Nov. 23.���������Powder in the  plant of the National Novelty Company, on Grant street, below Weller,  exploded at 2:30 o'clock, and entirely  ivrecked the building, burying white  and Chinese employees beneath the  ruins and caused damage to" the extent  of several thousand dollars. Tbat no  one was killed is considered by the  police and the fire chief little short of  miraculous.  The two Chinamen who were in  charge of tbe place, Faun and Hoy,  are now being attended at the Wayside Emergency Hospital.  Everyone employed in the fireworks  factory was more or less injured. The  two   Chinamen   suffered   the    most.  ���������Hoy may-lose-his-sight entirely. His-  left eye was almost blown out  by  lhe  explosion.  Faun was woi king on the second  floor of the building and the force of  the explosion threw him against the  wall fracturing his left clavicle.  Mary Iverson, was the most seriously injured of the girls employed in the  place.     Her head was cut and bruised  and it is   thought by physicians that  she sustained internal injuries. Norma  Judd, who   lives  near  Mi.s Iverson,  was also badly bruised and sustained a I  nervous   shock   which   will  probably;  keep her confined to her bed for some jj  little   time.

A Fight to the Death.
Jeiterson' City, Mo., Nov. 23.���In
a desperate attempt to escape from the
state penitentiary, flvo com ids fought
for freedom with weapons and wilh
nit ro glycerine, blew open tlioptisoii
gates, killing two piison olllri.il. and
-wounding Deputy XVniden Lee, and
four inon made a dash tlnougU thc
stieets under firo, only to bo captmod
after two of the seven mon had boon
wounded. Five prisoners taking advantage of the lib. enre of the w.iuleu
and six of the guaids, who left tndav
with 7 fodei.il prisoners foi J_mt Leavenworth, Kan., attempted to cbc.ipe,
but only four left the prison aftei
wrecking tj-io gate.
Convict-H.ii i y Vaughn, Ch.is. Raymond, Hiram Blake, Geoige Ryan and
Eli Zeigler, who weie woi king close
inside the prison gate, having tecuied
pistols and n bottle of nitio glyceiine,
* entered Deputy "V/tuden ,R E. Lee s>
office and shot hiin in the arm and hip
as he sat in a chair. He b ink back
helpless and the convicts luthed to the
gate where they met gatemau John
Clay, who, being .ilauned by the shot.,
opened the gate"to look inside. Befoie
Clay could iaUe bib weapon he was
shot dead.
"Then,   as   if  to   signal tho convicts
geneially lhat au   attempt   to ebCipe
had�� been  started, the  con. icts rang
the gate bell and rushed thiough the
gate, dragging Clay's body with them.
They slammed the gate ihut and fab
tened it while-Zeiglev was iii>ging the
bell and he was left inside.     The four
CJnvicts-weie then  in tbe wagon en-
tran e to the penitentiary.'   .This entrance is 40 feet long and 15 feet wide.
' It leads to the "public stieet through a
second' double'gate of ""steel which was

men  seized - weapons ^and- joined the
officers in thevpursuit_. The chase con-
-^tinued for a dozen blocks, the convicts
outrunning their pursuers. ' Near the
' Missouri. Pacific depot, thc convicts
came up with ii wagon, jumping into
this wagon the desperadoes seized the
driver and used him as" a shield fiom
the .bullet, of their pursuers. One
convict lashed the horso into a run
and escape seemed sine, when suddenly a squad of city policemen and armed
citizens nppca.ed.an front of tl.e fleeing nieni ���who stopped the hoise and
made a de-perate stand.- _
Lan, the di iver, was  thrown to the

vehicle, the four convicts fought tho
policemen. Vol'ey after volley was
fired in the stieet "by both bides to the
conflict,, while-, residents and- pedestrians fled to escape stray bullets.
The policemen, sheltering themselves
behind tieo<*, splinteied the w.ipon
and plowed up the mutt, finally putting a bullet through Vaughn and
Blake, the"latter falling to the ground,
probably fatally hui t. Then'the convicts surrendered.' Convict Harry.
Vaughan was sentenced from St.Louis
for 35 years for robbery, after a street
fight, in whicli he and another companion shot three detectives to death.

"My deur Eva," snid Mrs. Severn, tha wifo of Canon Severn, Vicar  of St. Margaret-ln-tho-\\'est. "you  are nearly twenty yctn's of ngo r.titl  fairly well educated for ihu heathen,  ond    you    positively    must   not do  that.     It Is most "  "Oh, I know whnt you arc going  to ray, mother.'* interrupted Eva.  with un rxpr...Moii (lowing into ripples.

Tyranny, thy namo  ls  mother!  "Marry me off, mother," continued  Eva,  with  a    wry  look.     "Marriage  is the common    fate of tho Soverns.  Dora  and    Phyllis    and  Vicky     and  Gladys    are    all     married    nnd  tamed.     If    I  am    tho  last  of  heathen,  you'll  own  I  am  not  .   first of the savages."  Canon Severn,  who had been  turbed in hi.s afternoon  nap, had entered  the -room  unobserved,  and now  stood   at the  door.  "Who's trying to destroy the  foundations of the vicarage now?"  he inquired, -with uplifted brows.  "Drily me, father," said Eva, import urbably, with the spirit of mischief still  in  hcr eyes.  "Yes, only Eva," echoed Airs. Severn, shrugging her shoulder... "Is  there no conversion for lho heathen.  Septimus?"  The \icar raised his hands.  "T fear not," he answered quizzically,   "unless Lord Eggremont,  vho  calls  rather  often,  I  observe "  Eva's cheeks flushed���������/lushed and  faded  to  white.  "I've noticed LjOrd Eggremont  about, too," she said, in ". rhanged  voice, "and���������and if he disturbs you  at your sermons, why, there's a  way out at the vicarage, just as  there's a way in. And thero are  two doors���������the back and the front.  You could give Lord Eggremont his  ���������;hoi**e."  With a nervous little laugh, Eva  pushed open the French window, and  ran lightly towards- a handsome collie, stretched out upon tho lawn.  On n morning in .June, the curate  called at the vicarage to request  Eva's assistance at a coming concert.  "Oh, if it's a song and a pianoforte solo you want," said her  mother, "I dare say she will make  the usual noise for you. But there  she is jumping about tho lawn with  the dog. You'd better go to her, I  think."  St. .lohn did not need a second invitation when It was put in that  way. even though it was leading Mm  into temptation. He loved Eva.  That was the plain, unvarnished  truth, as he acknowledged it to his  conscience, though ho had sealed up  his love in his heart as a sacred  thing. He was not lacking in courage, but ho felt he would be unworthy of Eva's frank friendliness if  he put himself in the position of a  rival  to  Eggremont.  Eva saw St. John descending tho  steps which led from tho drawing-  room to the lawn. Her boisterous  gambols with the dog suddenly  ceased. A crimson flush, deep almost as tho carnations bedded out  at her feet, came into her cheeks.  Her eyes sparkled  with soft lights.  Sho could feel her heart beating  rapidly as she turned to meet him.  St. John, on his part, was conscious of a strange commotion in his  blood, as the space between himself  and Eva lessened.  Presently he was lifting his hat to  her, and tolling her why he had  come and what he wished.  "Oh," she said," at last, looking  ���������down-and���������stroking-the-dog's-head,-  "I am always glad to help, and ���������  antl you need never make a fuss  about asking me. Come and look  at the roses, will you? You haven't  seen them for a fortnight. They're  very beautiful now."  The invitation came from her lips  very softly, and lured by music  grateful to his cars, he accompanied  her ncross thc lawn. Love thrilled  in his heart. Ho condemned it to  silence on his lips. His joy, in consequence, was so rapidly becoming  his pain tbat hc had the sense of  posit ivo relief when, looking up an  instant from his companion as she  plucked a rose to put in her bolt,  he saw Eggremont coming towards  -them.  "Lord Eggremont!" ho exclaimed.  In a hushed voico.  "Lo.*d Eggremont?" Eva repented,  pnle to the lips. Then she drew herself up with a frigid grace until she  8ceincd to St. John to have become  almost  statuesque.  "Perhaps    I   had  better go?"     he  questioned quickly.  "Pon't go," sho replied.  Her eyes    pleaded.       They glowed  upon him.    Ho thought he had never  seen  them more beautiful.  "Po you not want me to go?" he  asked, answering her eyes rather  than her words.  "Xo," she replied. "Please stay.  T���������I shall think it kind of you."  n.  Py this time Eggremont was half  way across tho lawn. Seeing the  curate and Eva togother, he paused  for an instant, biting his lip. Ho  was half in mind to turn back. He  b'.Vjmi to ������sk himself why Mrs. Severn had sent him to her. Surely  sIk- !��������� liow Eva was with the curate?  I i<!  :-��������� he know?  The question made him gasp. Tho  t! ought flashed upon him tbat their  meetings, at tho far and of tho lawn,  shaded as they were almost from  sight of tho vicarage windows by  tho rose-trees, was somehow clandestine, or, at all events, irregular,  and not in accord with the wishes  of the vicar or Mrs. Severn; whereas  everything was explained by the fact  that, in Bonding Lord Ejjgroinont  out, Mrs. Severn hud forgotten all  about tho curato.  Eggremont's blood boiled with rev-  sentment. Ho regarded tho presonco  of SL. John as an outrage personal  to himsolf. Prudence whispered to  him to return to lho house. Pride  and arrognnco drovo him forward.  He approached thom stiffly.  St. John lifted his hat and hold  out his hand.  "Good afternoon, Miss Severn."  said Eggremont. lie did not even  look at St. John, and ignored the  outstretched hand.  "I had no idea," ho went on, trying to smile, "that you wero engaged so pleasantly, when your  mother sent, mo out to you."  Eva did not ortcr her hand. Tho  flash which leapt from hor eyes ot  Eggremont was liko a flame.  "You do not notice Mr. St, John,  Lord Eggremont," said Eva, in a  tone whioh nipped Eggremont's ears  like a frost.  "I do not perccivo Mr. St. John!"  he remarked tartly.  "Then I do not seo Lord Eggremont!" was Eva's quick rcsponso.  "Will you ke so good as to return  to the house and toll my mother I  am unable to receive you?"  In his fierce, unreasoning jealousy,  tho impulse camo to Eggremont to  striko the curato across tho face. He  restrained himself with difiiculty.  "Miss Severn," ho cried, gripping  his hand upon her arm���������and the  grip was so fierce that it mado   hor  wince  with  pain���������"I came  to "  Whatever it was he had come to  say, Eva utterly disliked this man  now, and was determined not to listen.  "IIow dare you do that, Lord  Eggremont!" shc demanded, her face  as whito as his own, though it was  mado strangely beautiful by her  blazing eyes.  "Miss Severn," said St. John,  quietly, his hat in his hand, his  face quivering with his emotion, "I  love you!    Will you bo my wife?"  It was a courageous thing to say  at such a time. It swept all conversations aside in a breath. If  Eva's answer was what ho hoped,  it would give him tho right, on tho  instant, to protect her from importunities which, with the scales from  his eyes, ho saw sho resented. His  only motive was to protect her from  insult and from pain.  "I love you, and have always  loved you," Eva answered, with tho  anger in her eyes suddenly changed  to melting softness, "and I will be  your wifo. You havo made me very,  very happy."  "Take my arm," Eva, if you  please," replied St. John. And Eva  laid a whito hand tremblingly on his^  arm. The thrill of the touch vi-*"  bratcd through him like a rapture.  "Now, Lord Eggremont,"' ho went  on, with set face, "this lady is my  bflianccd wife. What do you want  to say to hcr?"  Eggremont glared at the curate,  lie was livid, with great eyes  strained and staring. He seemed to  he stricken dumb. For a moment  ho stood, the fingers of his hands  working together convulsively. Then,  without a word, he turned away  rapidly. ��������� crossed the lawn, and vanished by a back entrance.  Two months later large numbers  of peoplo were moving towards St.  Margaret's, where the wedding of  Eva and St. John had been arranged to take place. Great interest  was taken in the wedding, for it waa  an open secret that Eva had thrown  over Lord Eggremont for the curate.  Irresponsible gossips whispered that  it was because she had discovered  insanity in his family, but the gossips merely jumped to this conclusion from the fact that Egyrernont  had developed a mania for dressing  himself up in All sorts of disguises.  He had not beeu seen for Ave or six  weeks, however, and there were rumors that he had gone abroad for  his health.  ���������There _was���������the���������usual���������crowd-round  the gates of tho church as St. John  stepped out of the carriage and  walked along the gravel path to the  church.  He had almost reached the doors,  whon a man in clerical altlre sprang  out of the crowd ou tho left of the  path, and, with a wild shout, seizj-d  St. John by the throat nnd dealt  him two heavy blows on the head  with a bludgeon. St. John reeled  forward two or three paces. and  then fell like a log at tho church  step.  The whole incident had happen, d  so quickly thai St. John had fallen  beforo the crowd lining tho path had  time to realize what Iind happened  When thcy did realize il. two or  three people flung themselves upon  the man, and after a few minutes of  ineffectual struggle, he was Secured.  Ther it was that the st .rtlod cry  went up: "Lord Eggremont! Lord  Eggremont!:'  "Ha, ha, ha! There will be no  wedding to-day, Mr. Curate!" the  madman   laughed   insanely. "The  ladies and gentlemen can all go back  home! She belonged to me, she did  and you stole her! Ha, hai She is  not for you, Mr. Curate���������not for  you!"  Screeching and laughing in turns.  Eggremont was borne away, and,  meanwhile, St. John, unconscious  and bleeding, was carried to tho  hospital by gentle hands.  ******  Eva went to thc bed where her  lover lay with his head swathed in  bandages. For a moment the sighl  caused her so much anguish that she'  with difiiculty restrained herself  from crying out. But when slio saw  that thc face on the pillow smiled  up at her sho was steadied to her  ordeal.  "now long? now long?" Eva  askod tho doctor eagerly, in the  anle-room  THE RAILWAY IN CHINA  SOME    01"   THE  DIFFICULTIES  TO   BE    OVERCOME.  Syndicate Bought Up Land Along  the Route and Held it Against  the  Company.  Construction work on tho railway  from Shanghai to Nanking is actively proceeding, and it is hoped that  tho opening of tho first section may  take placo beforo tho closo of t.o  year, says Shanghai correspondent of  tho London Times.  The llnal contract for tho Shnr.R-  1ml Nanking lino was signed after  protracted negotiations by Shong Ta-  jon and tho concessionaires (tho JV.'l-  tish and Chinese corporation) in  July, 1003. Between thut dato nnrl  tho actual beginning of earthworks  furiher pourparlers wero necessitnt"d  on points of Uotu.il, financial and administrative in regard to which  Sheng Tu-jon'H uttitudo was pers s-  tently obstructive. Eventually, at tho  instanco of tho British Government.  an intimation was convoyed to tho  Director-General from tho Wai-wu-p.t  that further obstruction would entail unpleasant results, and slave  then matters havo advanced in oro  satisfactorily. Nevertheless, progress  has been slow, and tho recent experiences of the corporation shed instructive light on tho methods of  thc mandarin class, that corrupt  bureaucracy which blocks all reform  in China-  Tho line to Nanking via tho provincial capital (Soochow) is approximately 200 miles long, running  through flat country intersected by  many creeks and covered as far ns  Chinkiang with innumerable grave..;  thonco" to Nanking on the slopo nf  the hills which lie parallel and closo  to tho Yangtse. By tho terms of the  contract Sheng Ta-jeu receives ?2o0,-  000, in return for which ho is bound  to acquire all necessary land ami  and to obtain the removal of graves  within the limits required by the  railway. At tho beginning of March,  eighteen months after tho arrival uf  tho engineering stall,  ONLY THIRTY-EIGHT MILES  of tho total length had been acquired  and    this     is    isolated  sections;   but  sinco   then     matters    havo   advanced  more rapidly.  Tho construction of tho fust earthworks began in October, and now  proceeds as tho land is handed over;  it Is therefore evident that future  progress will depend chiefly on  Shcng's porformance of his duties.  Ho promised to give the company full  possession of all tho land as far _s  Soochow before April and thence to  Wusieh before June; but hitherto continuous pressuro hns not succeeded in  securing the fulfillment* of this official's promises. In the meanwhile it  13 interesting to observe that, so  soon n3 tho survey'"of any section'is  comploted and the lino definitely located, a Chinese syndicate���������of which  Sheng Ta'-jen'a son is >th'e 'reputed  head���������purchases lho land, wherever  possiblo, from thc agricultural owners and holds it against the railway  company, claiming a largo advance  on the market value. (The price paid  for agricultural land, compulsorily  .acquired, varies between 5100 and  $200 per acre.) These operations  primarily concern the Chinese Government; but, as they delay construction work and thus increase the  ultimato cost of the railway, they  concern also the concessionaires, to  whom Sheng frequently appeals ior  more funds to meet "unexpected contingencies."  At tho Shanghai terminus, in particular, the necessary land has been  so effectively "cornered," and is hold  at such high prices, that the position  of the station may yet have to he  altered, and in any case cannot "be  completed before tho opening to  Soochow takes place. The humorous  sido of the matter is thrown into relief when we remember that this is o  Chinese Government railway and  that Sheng and the Chinese commiv  sioners on tho board of construction  are ostensibly carrying out tho work  with economy and despatch.  Another sour.ie of difficulty lies in  tho removal of graves. This is a  question which presents itself everywhere in China; but in tho country  between Shanghai and Wusieh it is  -unus'u..lly_prominent^.becau_Q_tbe_lijio_  runs through what might bc descrilied  as  A CONTINUOUS GRAVEYARD.  Tombs and family burying grounds,  frequently of great size, nre scattered haphazard through-lit the highly  cultivated fields. Mtuiy have be_n removed during tho past yenr, but even  on the land already handed ovcr^ an  cnormou.. number remain, and for  theso gups have to bc left in tho embankments.  lected. The smallest remains 'will  suffice to justify a claim, and unidentified ancestors aro therefore in demand all along thc lino. . It is reported, though diflleult to prove,  that tho Chinese members of tho  board of commissioners and othcr  local mandarins havo beon prominently connected with tho "benevolent" societies.  Under such conditions credit is duo  to tho concessionaires and their engineering stud for the progress which  has been and is being made. Much  has boon dune by tho sunvilor in  modo, and more hy Ihu furl.iter in re,  and until now  abovo utatcd,   thc  sioners has worked smoothly, completo harmony existing botween its  three English and two Chinese members, for pence mi profitable terms is  tho watchword of Chinese olllcinl-  duin. Tho llritish engineering stall  consists of tho engineer in chief, threo  oxccutlvo engineers and len assistants. Uf tho latter, six have beon  regularly engaged in surveying operations inland, and they have met  with unvarying  KINDNESS   AND  COURTESY  from the natives. '  Another interesting oxamplo of  Chincso official methods cmno to light*)  when tho construction of bridges wus  begun. Tho corporation soon discovered that a completely organized  cornor had been formed by tho Chinese to control the supply of skilled  'labor and of bricks. So effective was  this combine thut considerable timo  elapsed before work could bo dono at  anything liko reasonable prices, and  ono', of the consulting engineers (A.  J. Barry) has therefore recently  mado arrangements for the establishment of independent brickyards and  the importation of labor from Tientsin. In tho meanwhilo the construction of all'bridges as far as Wusieh  has  beon   contracted   for.  A similar "corner" was subsequently organized to command tho supply  of ballast; tho native syndicate in  this case has acquired control of  all the existing quarries at' Soochow, and even extended its operation  to Nlng-po. - Popular report even  credited tho Chinese members of Lho  board of commissione- with a benevolent interest in thr. e "corners." At  an early stago of the local negotiations, after tho . nturc of tho  final agreement, lhe -.hincse claimed  that no contracts for construction  work should bo made except through  a. nativo ofllcial who claimed u tho  title of "Director of Contracts." Tho  'organization of "corners" followed  upon tho collapso of this preposterous proposal.  For the rest, the working plans  and sections of tho lino havo been  completed as far as Wusieh, *and the  survey to Nanking is advancing, embankment work is proceeding rapidly  wherever possible, the first consignment'of rails'has arrive'd from England, ' the sleepers from Australia  have been shipped, and orders,-, for  girder-work and rolling stock aro being fllled'in England, and much is on  its way to China. Unless new difficulties are created, the engineers  hope that the first section to  Naziang will -bo opened to traffic in  October; 'the > second, to Quinsan  (General Gordon's headquarters, in  1863), at the end of the year; to  Soochow in March, 1903," and to  Wusieh, tho great silk district, in  June.

SAVING FOE COMFORT..  A Bank Account Never Passes One  By in Time of Adversity.  There is a whole, lot of comfort in  saving. Sometimes the actual refraining from spending may be uncomfortable; but comfort comes immediately aftor the decision is  reached not to part with the cash,  but to put it with tho fund that is  accumulating. It is the same comforting satisfaction that is produced  when one puts asido temptation of  any sort. The first experience is a  revelation to anyone; and, to the  right-thinking Individual, the comfort derived from'it makes one want  to  repeat  the  operation.

Paul woke up with a vaguu sonso  of injury upon hitn. Ho foil that  ho wus entitled to a good cry, but  for a moment ho could not recall Iho  reason. Thon ho remembered. Mama had gono shopping, and had left  him at home wilh Aunt Emily. He  had not eared at all at the ' time,  becauso he and aunty wero drawing  pictures, and mama had gone boldly  out of lho front gate, in her best  hat. which is a vcry different affair  from stealing out tho back way, disguised in a ..unbound, and Paul had  fallen asleep over a six-legged donkey with ears thai reached to his  knees.  Tho atmosphere had appeared so  calm and serene, and now a storm  burst out of a cloudless sky. At tho  first sob Aunt Emily's stop was  heard on thc stairs.  Aunt Emily was a kindergarten  teacher from tho ''city, who was  spending hor vacation at, Paul's  homo, ahd hcr wiles to entrap lillle  boys into being good wero numerous; but on this occasion Paul made  tip his mind before she entered tho  room thai ho would not bo cajoled  by any of hei  tricks.  "I'm so glad you woke up, Paul,"  said aunty. "It is lonesome downstairs."  This was too transparent. Paul  opened ono eyo and looked at her  contemptuously. She was good to  look al, though, hor hair was - so  shiny and her teeth wero so white.  ' "Conic on down," she continued,  "and finish your donkey. You  didn't give him any,' tail."  "I don't, wanl the old donkey!':  wailed  Paul.    "I want mama."  Woll, mamn will bo back pretty  soon now. Let us go down and  build ii house-for hor." But Paul  flopped over on his -stomach and refused to be comforted.  _���������"1, wish,I knew of some littio boy  who ''would play_��������� horso with" mo,"  said Aunt Emily, plaintively/ -* .'"I  haven't. ' been a horso .tor 'threo,  days." -The cries continued'unabated. "Como-on, honey,'and "I'll show  you the things  in my trunk."'  Wonderful things-camo out of Aunt  Emily's trunk," and Paul had .often  longed to * -see the entire contents;  .but aunty believed in husbanding hor  resources. \  Evon this oiler proved unavailing.  The" noise had not diminished in  volume, but tho quality had changed  somewhat. It evidently required an  effort  to . keep it going.  "My, O my!" said Aunt Emily."  "It sounds  like  a  thunder-storm."  Tho noisa dropped a fow notes  lower, and presently a distinct  rumble was heard. He 'and - aunty  had  raised lots  of- thunder-storms.  Suddenly Aunt Emily had 'an in-  spiral ion.  "Paul," sho said, solemnly, "I'll  tell you what' I'll do. , If you'll  promise to not cry any moro till  mama comes, -we'll play thai'-(his  has beon a thunder-storm, and I'll  make a rainbow."  Paul opened his eyes. Aunt Emily  certainly did wonderful things, but  this was drawing strongly on hi.s  credulity.  "You   can't  make  a  rainbow,"--lie  said,  doubtfully.  '   "Yes,   I can,"  sho asserted.  Paul slid reluctantly off the bed.  Anyway, he had brought the terms  of his surrender rather'high.  "Yc es," ho said. "But," ho added      threateningly. 'Jit_ y_a_a_ d onlt  make  a  really  ono" I'll   cry  till  mama'comes."  Out on the lawn Aunt Emily turned on the water and picked up the  garden hoso. Then, wilh Paul at  hcr side, she turned until tho sun's  rays fell obliquely through the spray  and a mi nature rainbow, iu all ils  rosy glory, sprang into vlow. Paul  gazed in awe for a minute. Tlien ho  whispered, "Aunt Emily, can you  make moons and  stars  and  things?"  WHAT THE TOWEL SATD.  Thn front, door -stood open, and  throuph it came a litllo breeze, a  sweet br.jnlh of honeysuckle and  clover. Jt brought tho sound of  merry voices, for school was out,  and tho liltle folks were on their  way home.  Dick camo rushing in and threw  his nrrns about his mother as ho  mot ht-r in the hall.  "Now, run up and wash" your  hnnds, Dickie boy;"- said mother,  "ami  brush your hnir."  ".Oh, why do I havo to? I'm clean  enough," said Dick, crossly, looking  at his hnnds.  Mother caught them, as he tried  to pui them behind his back', . and  Dick couldn't help laughing as shc  sang:  "Oh,   whero are  thc  ten little,  clean  littlo men,  To lunch with mo to-day?"  "I really didn't know they were  so dirty, mother," Dick said, when  ho camo downstairs again. "Thoy  aro all gentlemen, though, and have  put on thoir clean coats to take  lunch  with   the  ladies."  Mother and Dottle laughed, and so  did littlo Madgo.

Tho following brief quotations aro  from "Sleep and its Regulation," by  Dr. J. Madison Taylor:  During childhood and exhaustive  states loo much sleep is rarely possiblo. For those in full tide of vigor  (too much sleep is often distinctly  hurtful.  The'notion ot narcotics presents  nono of thc characteristics of normal sleep except the tomperory arrest of consciousness, hence narcosis  is not truo sleep.  Tho best position to assume in  sleep to invlle the least disturbance  of thc functions of the great organs  is on the abdomen,  or nearly so.  Mnny obscure forms of digestive or  circulatoiy disorders may have "bcon  initiated in infancy through lying  too long on the back.  To secure the most perfect reposo  thc temperature ol all parts should  be equalised before retiring. Cold  feet induce delay in securing sleep,  and it is uthen shallow when attained.  It is most unwise to overfill tho  stomach beforo retiring; this disturbs sleep almost as much as hunger, but moderate eating before  sleeping is not hurtful, and is often  salutary.  Body clothing  nt night should    be  loose.'   not    dense,     permitting   the  ready pus.age  of air,  never  of  wool  "next to the skin. ���������>*���������  Bed clothing should not bo too  close of texture, blankets being preferable to dense "comfortables," and  not "tucked in" 'too closely. - Air  should be allowed to pass occasionally under the sides at least as one  turns about more or less freely.  Early rising is a salutary custqin,  especially when the day comes early,  not otherwise.  Moro sleep is required In winter  than in summer.. The best sleep is  had during tho hours of darkness. ���������  , The sleeping room should be cool,  abundant air being always admitted.  This should not be interpreted to  mean that room may safely remain  intensely cold.  In  the modern treatment of tuberculosis fresh air is  recognized  to be  imperatively/needed all day.and   all  night..     Artificial     heat   tan,    "and  should,  be supplird  along  with  fresh air, till the temperature of  room  bo  at  or  near   5<^  or  (30  greos Fahrenheit,   for some even  degrees Fahrenheit.

Man  the  the  de-  60  "-' P* "    CONSTIPATION.  * - It 'would be difficult" to'mention  one of1 the" so-called minor ills," or  slight ^deviations from .health, which  is productive of,1 greater 'harm     than  " constipations Physicians ' have come  to _ecognizetin recent years that one  of������the most" potent factors in the  causation, not only of discomfort,  -but of confirmed invalidism, is what  they call autointoxication, or self-  poisoiiing of the system by the  waste materials of tho body which  ought to be cast' out by way of the  ��������� intestines. ,    , '      S  Various nervous- diseases,** periodical headache, dyspepsia, skin" diseases,     ill    temper,    mental  dulness,  '    and  even  insanity' are some  of    tho  morbid  conditions     attributable     at  times  to-this  absorption   of  poisonous matter from thc stagnant *   contents'of the bowels. '**   - *  Constipation is a relative term,  and it is not .easy, to define it in a'  marnor applicable to all cases, for  some persons .have,normally two or  more movements",; ovory,'day, -whilo  others .have but ono every othor  day, but the average man in a condition of health goes to the closet  once a day. This variation depends  in part upon the amount and char  acter of the" food. Large eaters and  "those who live principally upon  vegetables and fruits containing  much fibrous" br woody material will  - normally    have    a    greater bulk of  *��������� wost c"-matter-than_ small- eaters, ^-or_  those whose diet consists chiefly   of  -��������� ment or starchy foods.  A    sluggish    state    of tho bowels  - may depend -upon deficient action of  tho liver or upon a muscular weakness of tho - intestinal walls���������especially of the lower bowel,  or rectum,  -tho ofllce of which is tho final discharge of tho effete material.-  The inactivity of,the liver may be  duo to various causes, hut it, as  well as the" torpidity of tho intestinal muscles, is most commonly tho  result of unhygienic living���������insufficient exercise, living in overheated nnd  si ufTy~ rooms, it regularity in "meals,  1 want of sleep, , worry, and, abovo  all. neglect to j->bey promptly tho  call of nature.-J'  Often .the clothing is at fault. It  may restrict tlie normal movement  of abdominal respiration which, if  frepj exerts a sort of natural mas-  sago on . the intestines and facilitates the' onward movement of-their  contents. ..- l  Another frequent cause of chronic  constipation is the injudicious use of  la.\nlivo medicines, which ovcrstimu-  late the intestinal muscles and, aftei  the immediate ' effect has passed  awny, leave them more exhausted  and weaker than beforo.

Learns     He   Was  Only    An  Adopted Child.  Forty-soven yuars ago a father and  mother, of Manchester, England, endeavored unavailingly to find thoir  kidnapped baby boy. To-day that  boy, now a man in middlo lifo, is  searching anxiously for tho parents  ho has nover known. Iio is advertising liberally in thc London papers  under tha initials of "C. F. M.," offering a reward for information regarding  his  parents.  Tlie known facts of this story of a  modern Jnphet are as follows: In  1858 thero lived about twenty miles  from Manchestei, a well-to-do landowner and his wife, whose name and  exact placo of residence are, however  unknown. A son was born to thom.  When only a fow months old the  baby was taken out by his nurso  and neither ovei returned. For years  tho parents searched .-for the missing  boy. No effort was spared to discover his whereabouts. Finally the  bereaved parents were compelled to  resign themselves to the inevitable.  Tho baby "in the meantime was handed over to a sculptor, and his wife  living in Manchester.  When ho was 7 years old tho family moved,, to Liverpool, and five  years later "went to Toronto, Canada  where the boy was educated and  started in life. For 34 years he lived there, no suspicion ever, crossing  his mind that tho man and woman  he loved as his parents were in no  way -related to him. Finally, with  startling and dramatic suddenness hc  learned tho' truth. The sculptor, a  widower, lay on his deathbed. Ho  loved his adopted son, and, though  ho knew he was dying, ho could not  bring himself to break his long silence and inform his son of hla ���������true  parentage As the end neared ''the  old man lay motionless on tho bed,  his hand clasped in "the hand^ of his  adopted son."

Up on* tho highest point of tho  Cotswold Hills in Gloucestershire is  a little colony of practical followers  of Count Tolstoi, people who bolievo  that it is wrong to live in tiny way  by tho labor of others*. Unable to  carry then- faith into practice in tho  outsido world, tliey have sottlcd in  this remote corner of England to extract their living from an inhospitable soil by tho labor of thoir own  hands.  Ono must not suppose, however,  that this is a colony of wild-eyed  anarchists or dangerous enemies of  government. It is true that thcy  objected nt first to paying taxes to  a government which they declared  gavo them nothing in return, and ono  or two men actually carried thoir  passive resistance to tho extent of  going to jail for their pnnciplcs, but  even tho country people round about  to-day are foi cod to admit that they  are good neighbors, pay their debts  and bother no one���������this in spite of  Lhe active opposition of squiro and  parson, who regard them as dangerous enemies of  chuich nnd stato.  The little colony, which is known  as -Vhlteway, is situated about the  center of a triangle the angles ot  which are formed by tho towns of  Gloucester, Cirencester and Stroud.  It is approached by mountainous  roads and lies about seven miles  from Stroud, which is the  NEAREST RAILWAY STATION.  The land owned by the colony  stretches along the side of a hill  and comprises about sixteen acres.  The tract was left to a set of trustees headed by Aylmer Maude, thc  well-known English disciple of  Tolstoi, by a farmer of tho neighborhood who had become a convert  to the theories ef the Russian philosopher.-  It wns expressly stipulated that  there shoujd bo no private ownership  of tho tract, and at first it was a  puzzle to fix upon a plan by which  this provision in the will should be  carried out. At last'the plan at present in operation was hit upon.  Tho land, of course, so far as its  legal'aspect is concerned, is held absolutely by tho trustees, but anyone  who is willing to work on it and  live in harmony with the colonists is  welcome to settlc_ on an acre and cultivate it. He may do*so>free of * all  charge, but, ho must not attempt to  acquire "any title'to it,, and "as soon  as, ho ceases to cultivate it with his  own .hands all his interest in it  ceas'es.M - _>'' ,_*���������-     *-'S���������Ai   j - ���������   '  There are at present about- a-dozen  families in .the colony and,, there are  ���������a couple-of acre plots vacant, but it  is expected that they will soon."' be  token up.

The average price  paid is $50 to each, unless they  should bc unusually numerous; while  tho trustees are empowered to pay  a larger sum when, in their judg- ,  ment. it seems 'wise to hold forth  a special inducement to procure, the  n.arriuge of some particularly undesirable woman.
