I  In  this  story,  wliich by  the  way is |  intended   only   for    grown   up   people, [���������  for it     occasionally      suggests      ideas ;  which   might- as   Mr.   Podsnap   would i  say  "bring the  bush of shame to the j  cheek   of   the   Young .Person."   Count  Leo  Tolstoy  is   mure  Tolstoyan   than  ever.      That   he   is  a  literary   genius!  there can be no doubt, act in the book  before us ho has   given us a realistic  pic'.urc of  his unique style.     Tho resurrection is that of a young Russian  nobleman  who  having* run  the  whole  gamut of vice and sclf-indulgenc-a becomes almost noble in* his subsequent  virtue  and  self  denial.      The  heroine,  is one after  Tolstoy's own heart. We  have   met   her     before   in     mitigated  form,  but in Ttessuroetiori there is no  mincing  of matters  dealing  with  vice  or   the  actualities  of   life.      The  book  is a  striking  picture  of Russian   lite,  but it loaves a somewhat bad taste..in  oat-'s   mouth.    Still,   perhaps   for. thia'  reason   it  has  been  largely  read  and  much  criticized in Europe.' Certainly,  it is quite out  of the  beaten  track of  modern   Ilction.   and" although  lt   cannot  be  recommended  indiscriminately,  it is an earnest study   of certain con-  dl'.ior.s of life with which many people  are not wo are glad  to say,  familiar.  Those w-ho do not   object to read    of  peoplo who live in the atmosphere of  the   "half.world"   will   find   tho  book  entertaining.    Geo.

aa literally "a'.ive wilh cattle, shes-i

A Canadian battery has reached

Durban reports the recoil.: of a
telegram from Lorenzo1 Marque*?, saying that a Beer plot io blow up the
Liritish c. ulser Forte was discovered
..nd that in consequence the wii:*���_'.;>
steams out. seven miles nightly.
President Steyn saw the fight at
Sand river. The impression he got
there was that his burghers could not
face Lord Roberts in a pitched battlo
and this resulted, according to advices from Lorenzo Marquez in Iho
decision to evacuate the Kronstad
works without a battle.
The Standard says: "From pro-
Boar sources wo learn, that tho
first great stand of the federals will
he on the ridges near 'Johannesburg.
This position has bee*", strongly on-
trenched and iho biu.ghers believe,
they can hold it for some time. If
driven from that -potsit part of tha
force will be thrown Into Pretoria to
withstand the siege while the main
body will retreat to the Lydenbtirg
district with the intention of keeping up  a  guerilla  warfare  from    the
mountainous regioiu. They, believe
they can indefinitely postpone a pacification   of  the country."
This view Is partly supported by a
despatch to the Times from Lorenzo
Marquez which saya: "Thero is general talk in Pretoria of President
Kruger contemplating an immediate
departure from the capital. There
seems no longer any doubt of iho
intention of the Transvaal to transfer the seat of government: to the
Lydenburg district and to endeavor
to make a final stand there. The
Raad is reported to have endorsed the
proposal." The Times says also tha*.
a number of the TranSvaalers are
preparing for flight, and that State
Secretary Reitz has selected Soutlr
America as his future home.

that Cue Boer sfoimers Saturday fell

perceived  the strategy.    It was thus
that  Sai-oH**! Kloff.   President   Kruger's

and whether tho victory has not so
depleted his force as to render him
open lo annihilation in the event, of
another attack by superior Boer numbers. But Lorenzo Maruqcz already
hears rumors that these have boen

According to general opinion news of
the termination of the desperate
struggle. between the besieged and
besiegers must reach England before
tomorrow.
Replying to a question in the house
of commons this afternoon .the parliamentary secretary of the war office
George Wyndham, said he regretted
that he was not able lo give an information in regard to Mafeking. He
reminded the house that even if the
desired relief cf Mafeking had occurred intelligence of the event could
not arrive in England before two and
possibly five days. The latter part
of Mr. Wyndham's reply is generally
accepted as .an intimation that the
government expected th-o relief of
Colonel Eaden-Powell and his garrison would occur at about the present
time.

Relief
Take Part in the
Mafeking
London, May IS.���The Canadian
artillery contingent of the Rhodes-
ian ferces is now reported to havo
reached Buluwayo on May 2. The
distance from Buluwayo to Mafeking
Is -100 miles. As the railway is open
all the way to Pitzanl. 28 miles from
Mafeking. where Colonel Plumer is,
the Canadians may yet take part in
tho relief of Mafeking.
"weeks, and  her life seemed empty to
her. . -    ���     ���
"I will not be quite alone," she
bad thought, when the news of her
father's death had been broken to
her. "1 will have Harold Deming."
But thc funeral service had passed,
and Madge had been in the house
two dreary weeks, and yet Harold
Doming, her most devoted suitor, had
not called  or even sent a messago.
Madge could not understand It, aad
after a trying fortnight, she had
packed her clothes and come to stay
with her' one aunt in the  country.
Life was dreary at Aunt Ellen's
farm, although the young folks were
in nearly every evening. The winter
passed, and Madge grew white and
thin. Sleighing parties and .sewing
bees were common, but Madge did
not care for auy of them. She
would sit by the big log fire in tlie
old-fashioned kitchen and think and
think.
She tried to forget that Harold had
forsaken her. She tried lo forget all
aliotit him, and she could not, and
ail this while sho had no ono lo tell
her troubles to.
She had net known before how
much she cared for him, but she was
certain now that it was a great deal.
Spring came with all its buds and
fresh life. "Now the roses will bloom
iu her cheeks," . thought Aunt Ellen.
Madge did-get a little color in her
cheeks, and she looked so pretty that
her Uncle Ellis said, she looked as
_pretty_as   a.   J'pictur."
TKe���.T"u~ne"r.ses were-blo"6miiig~all"
over the farm when one day Madge,
dressed modestly in a soft, white
: dress, went with a book to thc largo
4,271 '��� rose covered arbor to read. Her
2,312 golden hair was l-.irkrd up i:i a lor.33 '
���j,003    knot at  the  back of  her   head,   and j
 r    was   fastened with a pretty white 1030, ,
while Ehe wore another a.: hr*.* throat, i
Her   eyes   ere  retting vacantly   on'
the first  page  of (ho  book,  and she
did not notice a tall, handsome man
standing down at the garden gate.
Evidently he saw her, for he opened the gate and crossed the' old-
fashioned garden to the arbor. As the
dark form loomed up in' the little
entrance, Madge glanced up. It was
Harold Deming. Madge's heart stood
still. Now that lie was here she did
not  lenow  whether    to  be  angry  or
pleased,   but  when  he  sat  down   bs
