LECTURE  Socialism   Stands Unreservedly  for Working Class Interest���������  An Interesting and Instructive  Address.  Eugene V. Debs, the noted labor  leaderand lecturer delivered an aeldress  on socialism Wednesday last, .lime 25,  in Tapping's hall. J. W. Bennett,.  organizer of the local socialistic league  presided. Mr. Debs spoke for over :in  hour in a clear, lucid anel lhetovical  style, demonstrating the inevitability  of socialism, emphasizing the' e-l.is*-  struggle the pending doom of tin*  competitive system.  Ile said that the 'prevalent idi'.i.  cm rent amongst the unthinking wr  those who pariot like repeat lhe  utterances of interested 1*11 ties that  socialism meant "dividing . np" is  wholly at vaiiauce with what il dot"**  leally mean, as it's prime object is to  ston dividing* up and give to e.ie-h  individual the full product of his label  The working class use the strike as  a weapon but in this case it i.s only a  contest between a slom.ich and a steel  hank hook. All strikes have not been  failures, but if you wish'to bo wholly  successful strike at the Ballot box and  see that'the union label is on the*  ticket. There are but. iwo real pai-Lit's,  Capitalist nnd. Socialist, the, Ial ter is  lhe only one which stands unreservedly  tor working class interest*. Man is  tbe product of his environiueut.changu  the conditions and his nature changes.  -The workmen-of-olden Limes de-  stioyed the machines in Iho hope of  proven ting their use: history repeats  itself in lhe attempts of-the small  merchants to put hack lhu band of  time by crying "down with Lhe trusts.'*  The product of thu'individu il worker  never was so groat as it is today, nor  his wage representing Tso little in  purchasing power.  ,.; As, labor 'is constapLly.'piodne-iiig a  surplus wh'ch. owing to its reiimuei  ation being so much" less it cannot buy  back, it necessarily ensues that panics,  dull furies, over production come in  lvciniing cycles.  'According lo ihe statistics of the  Uniled Slates, Carroll I~). "Wright  admits there are one million unemployed today in that count iy who aie  anxious to work, and in dull times this  number is increased to nearly, four  millions. Minder, suicide, and every  form of vice is on fhe- inn-ease as a  direct result of our present system  which has been trieeVaiid found to be  woefully wanling, hence it is high  time it should pass into history along  with, barbarism, feudalism, elc  Mercantile bnsiness of loday appeals  tn all that is sellibh in man and despite  the attempts of the hell pit. to make  men good theii* efforts aie still titled .so  long as the present system obtains.  Social isin"i"rnnpbpnlirf"hut"=is_ never  theless scientific anel worthy of study.  If you are the only "socialist in your  ward stand firm and demonstrate ihu  fact that -you ure a monument to the  ignorance of your neighbors.  We are told that we are trying to  array class against class. Wo cannot  do that us our system has aheady  "done it. This movement is world  wide~ and over night million votes'  have already been cast iu thu  determination locust oft Lht. shackles  of wage" slavery and u-dier in lhe  industrial democracy,  Acctuding lo statistics the average  wage of thu coal miners of Pennsylvania is 78 cents pur day. Thev cannot  win, as the coal opi-iutoi-s have the  assistance of llie militia to shoot them  into subjection. Socialisls contend  that the mines should hu operated by  the people themselves, instead of by a  few capitalists who thrive on the toil  of the miners.  The trust is paving the way for the  new social order. It is crushing cut  competition, it will soon be impossible  for anyone to enter into business with  small capital.  The people cannot be freed un-.il the  working class takes over the reins of  government. British Columbia can do  its share by the organization of a clear  class conscious political movement  and it is fortunate in having already  commenced the work ol organization.  Halfway movements will accomplish  nothing.  Mr. Debs closed his address'aaiid  loud applause.  to be used a.s such. Aid. McLeod was  chairman and XV. Maguiie secretary  of lhe meeting. Afler somu discussion  il was iinanimou.-ly lesolved :  That the .-ccretaiy of lhe meeting he  instructed lo make application lo the  ollicials of the Ciiiadi.in Pacific Uy.  Co. through tho local superintendent,  Mr, Kilpatrick, for a grant of the use  nf a tracL of land situate immediately  east nf lhe tl. P. R. shops on tin*  railway right of way, for a recreation  ground for the citizens of* Itevel-toke,  many of whom are employees of the  Compiny, and to inform lhe Company  that if siii'h grant be maeli! an as.sricia-  tion will bo formed to raise moneys lo  clear, fence, anel manage Ihe giounibi,  and that the secretary point out t o 1 he  railway officials, tile gieal nee easily  thai exists for such grounds in Kevelstoke, there being none at the piesent  time, and also the probability of the  proposed grounds not being required  I'or ihe purposes of the Company for  some years to come.  A committee was appointed to see  ibnse who were not present at I be  meeting und get their views on Ihe  limit���������*>!*, and to attend to any business  whicli may come up in conneclion  w'lh obtaining Lhe gi mind in question.  The sila applied for if admirably  adapted for a recreation ground, and  within easv reach nf all. It is hoped  th'it lhe eil'..rts of the C. V. R.  I'lnploveos 'will meet with the success  tliey deserve, as until such time as  suitable grounds aie prncuied, little; or  no interest will be--taken in outdoor  sports in Revelstoke.  mmwm at  Nils    Johnson-   Confesses    to  Slaying   Peter Johnson���������The  Story of the Crime as Told by  the prisoner.  ��������� Edmonton,"N.

Besides the stamp  mill they will inslal a sawmill with a  capacity of,.10,000 feet of lumber per  day. Both lhe stamp mill and sawmill  will be on tbe ground just as soon as  transportation can put lliem there.  With Lhe inauguration of these new  industries Goldfields will be the best  free milling gold camps in British  Columbia, and, next to Rossland, will  be the biggest pay roll centre "of the  province.

The due-eased was a voung man. 32  years of age. who came to Kamloops  some three years ago. lie worked as  car repairer at the C.P.R. shops heie  and took un active pari in the work of  lhu Salvition Army.  A particularly sad accident occured  early Sunday morning at Ruby Creek,  Robt. McCalniont. whilo engaged in  shunting cais fell and was run over by  several cars. The right arm was  completely severed as was also the lelt  leg, anel the body otherwise badly  mutilated. Mr. McCalmonf-was one  of the 1st contingent to South Africa,  and was married about a week ago.  Much sympathy is- felt for his widow.  He was buried at Vancouver on Mon*  day morning.  Thc C. P. R. has laid out a park at  Rossland, whicli the Miner says is the  Golden City's fir.it real attempt to  create beauty spots in tho city. Much  has been said about improving the city  park reserve, but up to date tha agitations to this end have ended where  thoy started���������in Lalk. Now IheC.P.R.  is Lo havo a "beauty spot" about 100  by 60 feel in dimension in block* 18.  The ground has been carefully prepared, new earth laid down to a depth of  a foot or more and grass will' be  plautetl immediately. A feature of  the park is the big flag pole 00 feet in  height, on which a 10 x 12 flag will be  hoisted on gala days. The C.P.R. has  made another innovation on its Rossland division by equipping eleven of its  locomotives with arc electric .headlights and abolishing the old style  kerosene lamps. The new headlights  have only'been in use a short time on  the Rossland branch, but they have  excited general comment and admiration by reason of the brilliant  light which, they shed for half a mile  ahead of the engines. The engine  crews state that with these lamps they  ,seo further ahead-on the track and  distinguish signals and other objects  moio readily than in day time. The  lamps are operated by a steam driven  dynamo located 'on the boiler just  behind the stack.   ��������� ,  _  Recreation Grounds.  A large and well attended meeting  of C. P.

Some of the people who were at the  Wndsor street station to . see the  Imperial Limited pull out, says the  Montreal Star, were present at the old  Dalhousie station 10 years ago ,to  witness the departure of the first  Canadian Pacific transcontinental  'train from Montreal.  Mi: GeorgeH._ Ham said: "The  train left here Monday evening, June  28, anel reached Port Moody, then the  Pacilic Coast terminus, the following  Sunday at 12.51���������sharp on time���������the  run across the continent occupying  over 130 hours. The Imperial Limited  knocks '30 hours oif that. '  "At the Lime of the first  tinental train departure, the railway  company had 330 locomotives, 289 first  and second' class passenger cars,  baggage cars and colonist sleeping  cars, 31 fifstcl'ass sl""epir""j*~"r"Td"~'"aifii""g"  cars, 25 parlor, official and paymasters'  cars, 7,838 freight and cattle cars of all  kinds, 108 conductors' vans and 4S  boarding, tool and auxiliary cars. An  ielea ot the company's expansion is  shown by tho statement that these  figures have grown to: 708 locomotives.  002 first antl second class passenger  cars, baggage cars, antl- colonists'  sleeping cars, 115 first class sleeping  and dining cars, 33 ''parlor, paymaster  and official cars, 20.0S3 freight ancl  cattle ears, 303 conductors' vans, 8SC  hoard, tool nnd* auxiliary cais and  steam shovels, and five ocean liners,  tluee upper lake steamers, tivo ferry  .steamers and tugs, and 23 car barges  on the inland waters of British Columbia, and 13 steamers on the Pacific  coast trade.  "'At that timo there were more  people living who believed that the C.  P. R. wouldn't pay for the grease of  its axles than tliere are now, anil there  were few who anticipated that in 10  years the daily transcontinental  service would have to hesupplemented  by a train of the elegance anel speed of  the Imporial Limited.    And���������  "And what?"  "Well, wait till you see - us next  year." *  The customs returns of a poit are a  very good index of its tiade. If this  genet ally accepted statement is true,  then very few places, in proportion to  ils size, of course, are commercially  more prosperous than ReveKtoke. The  customs revenue of Kevelstoke last  year wi*=. but. "87,233.08; this year it  rose lo $13,358. or almost double that  of the year before. But it is nottlone  in customs that an increase ot dominion revenue is notice. The Inland  revenue leceipts being also much  larger. For last year the figure was  $5.540 85: this vear S7-.390.v9. or almost  S2,O0O wore. The whole revenue of  the Dominion Government office  (customs and Inland revenue) here for  the yetr 1901-2 is therefore $20,750.

"I am quite vain enough to beHeve  that It must be," Miss Garniture replied, wrMi a emile that completely finished ther eoanp-anion.  "And I may call and see you again?"  George asked, as he sprang ashore.  "I shaM be delighted, rt is so seldom  that a girl haa the opportunity of talking to a oiever man."

She watched him out at sight, waving her handkerchief as he turned to  look back tut ������ bend In Uhs path, and  then she pushed the hoat off, and rowed  leisurely homeward, smiling softly to*  herself.  "Well," queried Mrs. 'Walthorpe, as  Katharine entered the UUle sitting-  room.  "M 1* well," replied the girt. Then  she -burst out laughing, and went up to  her own room.  ���������   ���������   ���������  The foreman of the composing-room  was sup.'-Intending the locking-up of  the last form of tilio ������up.pllejnent when  George Akerside made a headlong entrance.  "Is the 'Book Chat* page broken up?"  he asked, between gasps.  "No, It ain't," replied the foreman,  "but the plate's on the press, and we  jsbart running In fifteen minutes."  :"Thank God!" cried George. "'You'll  have to ca>at a new plate. I've got to  make isoone alteratlorui In one Lot the  reviews. Now, it's no use kicking, old  nun.' W-e I can't, l������t It go the way lt  stands and hold our Jobs."  He snatched a handful of proofs from  a hook, and, disregarding the uncom-  pllmeratary remarks of the outraged  foreman, rushed down to his office.  Xt Is no easy matter to convert curses  into Measlnga at a few 'minutes' notice, and so George found to his cost,  as he ran his eye over the devastating  sentences of Ms review. The beginning  was not promising. "While 'Her Heart  a Target' 7can scarcely be called a welcome addition to.'j.modei-n Htenature,  .Miss Mulready has une" uhtedly deserved the thanks of a large number ot  literary aspirants. She has demonstrated that there exist: publishers who  are .pparentily willing to accept a work  on the unsupported recommendation of  the euUhor."

OT long ago, among the v*rled  pictures of human life ������������������which go  to make up the dally newspaper,  appeared a story as thrilling an fiction,  although tt was only a part ot the  plain news of the day. It had to do  with the life-savers ait the Chatham  station which guajrds the end of Cape  Cod. For thirty-sdx hours Captain Eld-  redge and his crew, who patrol this  point of land projecting far out Into  tlie Atlantic, went through aa hard an  experience as brave men are often  called upon to endure. The story Is  outlined by the "Youth's Companion:"  During a freezing hurricane fclieynaw  a seJiooner in distress oft Pollock Rip.  Ordinarily there could have been no  question as to whether or not thoy  Should go to iier assistance; for although every drop of water froze as  fast as It fell, and the sea was mad,  and Pollock Rip is a treacherous place,  yet life-savers are used to riotous  weather and do not hesitate. But this  time there waa a -special element af  danger; a northwest wind tearing down  past the edge of .the land at sixty miles  an hour made it Impossible for any  boat that should set out for Pollock  Rtp'. to return against the gale.  But the men of the Chatham station  did not stop to reckon .their chances of  return. Trusting' that the schooner  might hold out through the storm If  manned and pumped toy a fresh crew,  they struck out: lo their Ufa-boat toward the Rip.  Although the wind was- with them,  lit wesa hard pull. Three times they  were nearly swamped, and when they  reached the schooner, they dared not  pull -alongside of her; It took an hour  of hard work to get ��������� aboard, and even  than the crew of.the schooner had to  pull them up one by one with ropes, as  if they, the life-savers, .were the rescued, not the rescuers.  They had won their goal, but It might  etill be nothing'but a goat of death;  they knew thait -when -they started.  One pump waa broken,'the crew at the  vessel-was half exhausted, and the water, was pouring into the schooner at  the rate of nine hundred pump-strokes  ���������an hour.  Sending most of tha ship's crew to  their bunks,' Captain Bldredge and his  men manned the two good.pumps and  fought the inrushlng water. After  thirty hours of fighting *hey won; That  Is how the schooner "Emma D.-Kndl-  cott." Captain ; Rogers : of ; New Tork,'  lived to be towed up to Boston.  If she had not lived, the men of the  Chatham life-saving station, who  staked theflr lii-es on the chance that  they could reach her and keep her  efloat, who; went: to her aid5knowing  they could not return until the wind  abated���������well, they would not have lived  to hear people tell them how brave they  are.   -  tn 'vi I for mc," shy said  low voice.

Tne Anuquity of Trcucsrz.  WOMAN'3    ever-changing    fashions in dress have afforded the  men    much   amusement,   and  have given the satirical writers any amount of material for their  pens.   It is clearly a case of people living   in   glass    houses    'and   throwing  stones.     Men's fashions have    passed  through quite as many changes, and it  is doubtful If  the petticoat itself has  had a more varied history: than have  those grim  articles trousers.    "To the  eye of  vulgar    Logic,"    said  Ruskin,  "what Is man?   An omnivorous biped  that wears Breeches."   There has never  been a Petticoat ���������Bible, yet in the year  1560 an edition of the Scriptures  was  printed    at    Geneva  known    as  -the  "Breeches Bible." The name arose from  an unusual rendering of Genesis iii. 7.  Adam  and   Eve,  instead    of    making  themselves aprons of fig-leaves, made  thomselves "breeohes."   There is no record of Eve wearing petticoats, yet the  first man   is   reported   to   have   worn  breaches.   The ancients .wore breeches  ���������divided    skirts probahly���������on    horseback only, resuming their flawing draperies when they dismounted.   Among  the    Romans,    trousers,    which    were  called braccae, were .worn only by the  soldiers   who    were    exposed   to   cold  northern  climates.    Tihey  were homemade,, to Judge from the pictures, and  not  In  the  least stylish.    Among  the  Greoks   such - garments   were   confined  to slaves, the swells reserving the chiton tor themselves. .The first taint foreshadowing of trousers as we now sea  them was In the time of Richard X. of  England.    In Spain, as well as In the  Low Countries, trunk hose, mercilessly  slashed,   stuffed  and   decorated,   were  She smart things among the elegants.  The story Is related of a luckless courtier wlho, having seated himself on a  chair  upon   which    was   a  projecting  nail, was suddenly obliged to rise   to  pay his devoirs to his sovereign.' Instantlyseveral peclca of dry w^ieat dust  gushed out of his "galloons," and thc  unhappy   courtier  stood   there /diminished to a oplndle and cutting a very  sorry   figure.  .During    the   "reign  of  Charles I. of England, when Vandyck's  influence/was being felt, breeches became   of  uniform  width,  opeji  at/ the  knee, where they were f ringed Or bordered: with lace and fastened with ribbons. Trousers comes from:Old French:  trusses, a kind of hose,: from trousse,  a truss.   Pantaloons: owes its origin to  St. Pantaleone, a patron  saint of the  Venetians.    His  name was commonly  received at baptism hy the Venetians,  and was by  them  transferred to  this  garment, which they very much, affected.   The.term '.'sansculotte": originated  ln France. . It meant,  properly speaking,   a   fellow   without   breeches, ' and  was used as a term ot derision by the  arlstocratical party   for    the  popular  party at I1-"* beginning of the Revolution, but was later assumed by the patriots as a title of honor. Another term,  one: which' has offended our: ears: and  our sensibilities, is pants. But good oid  Oliver Wendell Holmes disposes of it  with  short shrift:   "the  things named  pants���������a word not made for gentlemen,  but   gents."      Kven   among   the   poets  trousers have not been considered too  prosaic to be put into song.   The genial   Tom  Moore  leaves behind him-  a  charming little Impromptu7 inspired/by  a pair of breeches.    It seems that the  bard was obliged upon one occasion to  leave a very pleasant party on aocount  of not haying a pair of evening trousers in which  to dress 'for dinner.    He  scratched   upon   a  fly-leal' the   following:  Between Adam and me the great difference Is",  Though  a  paradise   eaeh   has   been  foroed to resign.  Thait he never wore breeches till turn'd  out of his.  While, for want of my breeches, I'm  banished from mine.  A Toast to the Bachelor.  A'  A Matter of Spelling.  Those who love to study human nature often derive as much pleasure  from watching the people who visit  picture-galleries 'as thoy receive from  the pictures themselves. It Is not every day, however, which produces so  amusing an incident as one which an  Knglish paper-reports:  Two ladles were looking at -picture  by Sir. Paerl. In the Roya.1 Academy,  entltle>ri. "Ills Only Pair." The artist  has depleted a poor boy sitting up in  bed ���������while his hard-working mother  mends his only "pair of trousers.

One of the visitors looked at the picture with searching.-gaze,-and thr remarked to her companion:���������������������������" 'HI _>nly  Pair!' I don't'call that a pear .i all!  It's an orange that he Is en,tlng."  TOAST is offered to the bachelor.  Not to every bachelor, of course.  Not, all are toastworthy. There  are plenty who ought to have married,  but were too timid, distrustful, lazy,  seK-indulgent, or incompetent. Thera  are those ���������who .were* dazzled in their  youth by the., spangles ��������� and gewgaws'of  life,;and stretched out for them hands  too eager, to detect the worthlessness of  what  they  got.

There are those who broke  hearts, partly trom fal thlessness, partly: from over-much calculation, portly,  from mere Iackof grit. No, we may  not toast all bachelors. So much the  more toast those whom7we may! Maintained, of the unmalntalned; bearers of  burdens dropped by other .men, providers for the, unprovided for, succor-  ers of the distressed, defenders* of the  fatherless, bulwarks of the widow! Oh,  what a gooel, an Indispensable man is  that bachelor who can mnke a bigger  living tha.n he needs, and Is always  ready to. share his surplus; who counsels his nephews and fortifies thPm  with timely remittances; who surprises  his nieces with gowns and opportune  hats; who has no serious trouble-s of  his own, and Is reaely always to shoulder such troubles as others bring to  him!

Dr. Mdnot J. Savage told a story  of a lady who was asked: "Do you ever  think of getting married?" "Think,"  she answered with asperity, "I worry."  A Toronto man, father of an unusually numerous family, *\vas visited by a*  Westerner. "I never saw anything like  it, old man," remarked the stranger  over the cigars; "every time I com*?  you have a new baby." "Oh, don't  mind it, my dear fellow; it Isn't your  fault," was the quick reply.  The late Lord Dufferin had put on  record a Sheridan story whloh.Is.-worth  repeating.

A young heiress with a penchant for  farming was explaining at length the  many difficulties she encountered in  pursuing her fad. "I really am a farmer," she protested, and 'then added,  regretfully, "although it must be confessed that almost all I plant I lose."  "Therein differing from me," courteously rejoined heritable companion, n  rising young physician, "for I find ln  my case that almost all I lose I plant."  An omnibus full of Parisian students  was making its way along! the Rue de  Rivoll when a priest in his a-obes of  oflice Joined the party. The students  hailed the newcomer wltlh dellgQit, and  began ������Jt once to tell all the objectionable stories they could recall. The  priest spoke not a word'tin he rose to  get out. Tilien he snid, politely: "Au  revolr, messieurs." The French "au  revoir"means literally, "till we see  each other again." One / of the > students evidently had this in mind: when  he replied.

Once when Sir Jharles Hotham, Governor of Victoria, was out driving, his  coachman noarly7 came into collision  with' a wood carter, an Irishman, in a  narrow lane outside Melbourne. The  Irishman would not pull oft .the middle  of the road, as he had,the heavier load,  and, by the rough rule of such things,  was thus entitled to keep there. The incensed governor thereupon put his head  out of the carriage window and:shouted: "Do you know who I am, ,my.man?  I'm Sir Charles Hothain, the Governor  of. Victoria!"

Describing a visit to the lattery  Mr. Pomeroy writes:  "The hands of the two big clocks���������  there must be one on each side to balance���������approach two. A minute later*  the ushers; In full dress, each with al  metal chain around his'neck, arrange'*  themselves in a row; the head usherr  announces in a loud'voice to the few!

The audience : quiets  down. Without any roll-call,^reading:  of minutes, or other preliminary, the*  President announces that Deputy Berry will speak.  "A stocky, businesslike Frenchman-  ascends the tribune. At first he speak*  calmly, but, soon warming up, he expostulates. Implores, entreats, commands, exhorts. Gestures are frequent  and7 emphatic. It; Is an oration. A  sharp remark* starts a question : from**  one side. M. Berry answers it. Another and another follow in rapid succession. : A member stops walking in-  front and begins an excited: explanation. Twelve pr" fifteen Deputies are*  talking at once. M.

He does not understand  the French love of a sensational effect  and of display.  "President Duchanel has Just been*,  married. A little later, a witty Deputy]  in the course of his speech said,!

But one day he-  noticed    the   Speaker himself    bowed  three times.on entering. ,:He enquired,,  but' no one seemed to know the reasoni \  for thiB rule.

At  the upper end was an altar, and everyone coming in bowed three times to the*  Holy: Trinity���������to  the  Father,   to  tho  Son, and to tho Holy- Ghost.   They; no  longer meet in St.: Stephen's chapel; the  religion is gone; the altar, Is gone; thoi  real reason -for the /rule Is- gone���������but  they still bow three times on entering.  '  Again, "in the House of Commons thel  members'7sit on  benches without any'  desks; These benches run up and down'  the hall, and an aisle runs: up the center.

The dull, yellow light of a street lamp  struck full upon his face'as he talked.  ��������� while mine must have been In shadow.  ���������He was flushed, and spoke rapidly,  Evidently in some haste tot make good  his case.

If this Wore the case, I   could  picture her anger, and I shrank from  the thought,* for. the beautiful,. sad woman whom I loved knew how to make  herself feared as well; Yet I prayed  that she might have .been .before me,  and was ready to endure her reproaches rather than hear that she was still  absent.  ' Ifancled 'suppressed amazement on  the face of the hall porter who helped  me from the hansom, and handed up  my fare to the cabman.  "Doyou know If Lady Cope has come  In yet?" I asked, nervously.  "I've only Just come on duty, at  midnight,- miss," the hall porter replied. "I haven't seen her ladyship."  .1 felt unpleasantly, sure that the  6ig man suspected that I had been  guilty, of some 'Imprudent escapade,  which I was anxious that -"her ladyship" should not ;dlscover,,and ifrom  the good-natured twinkle In his eyes,  as he held the door open and watched  me" fly towards the llfit,- he probably  wished me luck.  But In an instant I had forgotten him  and his conjectures. I asked no more  questions as/to myv mother's return,  but hurried , straight to -our rooms on  the second floor.  I threw my cloak over the back of a  chair, and knocked at my mother's'  door, softly calling her name,in a'voice  that would tremble.  There was no answer, and I turned  the handle to peep in." Her room was  in darkness. Perhaps, I thought, she  had returned, and gone straight to bed,  taking it for granted that I was safely  in the house, and not wishing, for reasons of her own,' to see me until morning.  "I ventured to switch on "the light,  which was near the: door. The bed was  empty, the cover temptingly turned  down, a silk night-dress and robe de  chambre laid ready by the maid, who  would be waiting at this very moment  for her delayed summons.  There was Just one hope left, and I  pressed the bell connected with the little room occupied hy my mother's  maid. Swift.   _    .  In a moment she appeared.  "Oh, miss," she began, "I was Just"  beginning to be afraid something was  the matter. - Her ladyship said you  would be coming straight back after  the: theater."  "Then she hasn't sent any word?" I  asked. This had been the one hope I  had still relied upon.  "No, miss. No word has come for me.  Isn't her ladyship with you?"     i  "She���������she has gone with���������a friend,"  I faltered, trying, to make my voice  sound natural,: for mother'was not one  Who would tolerate having!her,,private  affairs discussed by a servant.' "I came  back alone.- But���������I thought she! would  have been at home by-this time, or let  me know" that she was not to be ex-'  pected till later. No doubt it is all  right. Only I���������I can't help feeling a  little.anxious."  "Oh, If her ladyship Is with a friend,  there's nothing-to worry about," Swift  ���������cheerily assured me. She had been  with-us for a long'time,'ever since I  was quite a child, ln fact, and I would  have given much to ask her a few discreet questions, for it was Just possible  that she was more ln mother's confidence than" I was. But I ��������� put the  thought behind me, and steeled myself  in patience.  "Tou look as white as a ghost, miss,"  the maid went on. "I do' hope -you  haven't got a chill. Better have a cup  of chocolate, and let me get you to  bed. By, the time you're ready, her  ladyship's sure to be here."  ', "I'm not, at all cold, and I'm not  sleepy," I protested. "I don't feel like*  being undressed yet, thank you. You  can go to bed, and when Lady Cope  comes I will do everything that she  needs. If she should be ill, or really  want-your^why���������oi-course,-I-wlllTring,-  and you can slip into a dressing-gown."  , Swift murmured gratefully that she  was "much obliged" foi- my kindness,"  but though she decorously ��������� retired,  there was that: In her eye which told  me she did not-mean to avail herself  of my permission. I had spoken calm-'  ly, I flattered myself, but I had not  been able to conceal from, her experience" that something unusual had occurred, /and doubtless she> Intended' to  wait, clothed and alert, for'any emergency.  L . Never shall I^forget the next hour.  1 Though I had said I was not cold, I  shivered with a nervous trembling, nnd  mechanically 'sat down by the flre,  ���������stretching out my hands towards the  blaze, which Swift had stirred Into'renewed life.  On the mantel stood a small clock,  that ticked In a whisper, and every  quarter-hour uttered a sliver note. The  hands scarcely seemed to move; 'days  have passed moro swiftly for me .than  those, lagging quarter-hours. I' Imagined my mother trapped by a villainous  plot Into'which she had fallen;. murdered even, it might bo���������for crude tragedy did break Into peaceful lives/even  ,ln���������';this, opening of an enlightened century.  As I so thought, the deep silence of  the room was ru(fled by a falnt.'all but  inaudible, sound..: It was, as If someone  outside had brushed against the handle  of the door In going by. I sprang up,  and,'running across'the'room, threw  the door open, Just in time to catch my  mother In my arms as she swayed and  fell forward.  'She. was a Juno' In height andj build.  whlle.I wasa slender .girl.', whose forehead .'came on aleyel wlthl Her chin; it  we stood side by side; yet���������somehow X  held her.        '  I laid her down, and sank on my  knees beside her. I was quivering  nil ������vor, and for a moment was powerless to move. When I could rise, l.rang  the boll for Swift, and rushed to my  own room for eau.elc Cologne.  I was back'again before the maid  could come, bathing my mother's forehead, and hoggins her to speak. In a  stMnge, weak little ...voice, that did not  sound like my own. Suddenly she  opened her eyes���������those wonderful eyes,  ���������run the haunting shadow that hiu  their depths. She was gazing straight  into mine, yet I knew that sho did not  see me, and felt, with an eerie chill  that she was looking through me at  something else.  So unearthly was the expression of  the \vhite face that involuntarily l  turned my head over my shoulder," halt  expecting to see-that someonp had  stolen noiselessly into the room, to  stand close behind me. But no one  was  there.  Her lips were moving stiffly. I bent  over her as she lay among the cushions, and her breath, as lt rustled past  my cheek, was cold, or 1 fancied it..  "The scar���������the scar!" she was whispering: "After���������all���������these years. What  a fearful revenge! *, :It is���������my death."  "Mother!" I cried, my voice breaking  into a sob. "Don't say that; you shall  not die.   I am here���������your Sheila."  Her eyes slowly came* hack from  thait world where she had been, and  she saw me at last. I, could see the  recognition coming like water that  moves under Ice; but no light of love'  came with it, only a* sudden, bleak  gleam of horror���������or hate, I dared not  think which.  . "You���������you!" she said. "If It had not  been for you*���������"Her voice died, then  rose again, chokingly.    "To atone "  she cried, aloud. "Sheila���������save���������find���������  you.must find "  ��������� Her breath went with a gasp. She  ���������pressed her hand over her heart,   halt  sitting up, her face convulsed with  pain. I slipped an arm-behind her  shoulders, and laid her gently down  again.    She yielded; but as her   head  r  touched the pillow once more she raised  ���������both/hands, laying one .on ��������� each ot  my shoulders; and then I saw *a terrible thing that almost forced a scream  from my lips.;,I held.it back by force,  but my forehead was wet, and a wave  of Sickness swept over me.  My mother Invariably wore 'long  sleeves with her evening dresses,  though sometimes, as to-night, they  were/of thickly; shirred chiffon or  gauze.  I knew the reason for this whim ol  hers���������for a whim those in ignorance  of the truth might have called it. On  one of those beautiful white arms of  hers there was a thing to hide���������the  same thing which that : other woman  had so ostentatiously displagsd in the  theater.  Now, as she lifted her arms, the  sleeve fell-back from the,right one, cut  and torn from wrist to shoulder, spotted here and there with crimson. And  ���������where the purple scar had been there  was a fresh, raw burn, as if the flesh  had been' cauterized with: red-hot iron  "The West Wing," she panted. "The  ^West/Wing."  I knew that she strove to say something that she could not utter, and ]  tried to help.  "The West Wing, at home?" I asked  "Is there something I can do for you  there?',' ,'     ���������  ��������� She -answered only with her eyes.  They seemed to say: "Yes���������a hundred  times yes!" And having said it, they  closed. Her hands slid from my shoulders, and, faint and shuddering, I softly laid the poor hurt arm down by h'er  side. - ' -  ' As I did so, Swift came forward. I  had not heard her enter the room.  "Go and tell them to send for'a. debtor," I exclaimed. "Quick���������she Is very  111."  'Swift went away "again. It seemed  to me that she was gone a long time,  though I do not suppose it could have  been more than five or six minutes. 1  bathed my mother's forehead and  hands with the eau de > Cologne, but  'she did not .speak or open her eyes.  "Have you seen her ill In this w*ay  before?" I asked Swift, when she   had  ��������� returned.  "Never so bad," the woman answered,  ln an awed tone. "But she has suffered with attacks ot palpitation of the  heart sometimes. She told me I was,  never to mention it to you, and I  haven't till now. There's some medicine ln the next room,-'I've dropped for  her more than once. I think It's called  digitalis. Shall I get it now, and try.  what it will do?"  I'nodded assent; and presently Swift  came: back with: a small bottle.  "The label's been torn oft lately."  the frightened maid announced. ' "I'  can't remember what "the dose was.* I  daren't give it to her ladyship, miss.  And, oh, only look at her! Her teeth  are locked together. It would be hard  to get her to' swallow anything now."  Somehow "the time passed, and the  doctor came. ��������� Afterwards, I heard  "that~"scarcely-twenty-mlnutes_had_gone^  by between the moment when Swiff*  left me to take'the message downstairs  and that when he -arrived. But the  minutes seemed, ten times twenty.  * The doctor was an elderly man, with  grey hair and keen eyes, and a quick,  concise way*of speaking that inspired  one with confidence. He' asked: questions as to my mother's previous state  of health, emclt the medicine In the  unlabelled bottle, and put lt aside. Evi-  "dently lt was not what, was needed  now.

"How did she burn herself?"  "I���������don't know," I stammered. "She  has been out, away from me for several hours, ,and only, came In a: few  minutes before * we sent for you."  ;"Humph!" he muttered,: his bushy  brows drawing close together. "She  has had a shock; and���������the . heart is  very weak.   You are her daughter?"  I nodded; for tears choked my voice.  "I'm afraid; I ought to , warn you,  then, that she is In great danger. If  the action of the heart "  Swift's return interrupted him. But  ,1 knew what he would have said, as  well as If he had finished the sentence.  "Cut the other sleeve . open,".. he directed the maid. In an Instant It was  done, and with a tiny hypodermic syringe he Injected brandy into the left  arm.  fhls.he did again and again,   each  time raising a slight lump with a tiny  dot of red on the top, while I watched  in silence, my heart beating fast in my  throat.  At last hor lips moved. '.'The���������West  Wing!" she said again, with a fluttering breath. The words ended in a  long sigh. A curious, indescribable  change came over her features. Never  had she been so beautiful. Never had  she looked, since I had known her, so  thoroughly at peace.  The doctor's hand was on her breast,  his eyes on the wonderful, marble  face. For a long moment he did not  move. Suddenly, my mother's .long  lashes quivered, and her eyes opined  Wide, black as mountain tarns at midnight. Whatever she had seen before,  when she had seemed to look through  and beyond me, she now saw, or  thought she saw, once more.  "Mother!" I cried out sharply.  "What is it���������oh! what is it?"  "My child," said the / old doctor,  "your mother has gone to sleep. She  will not wake again in this world."  She was dead. ;And she had died  seeing It.  CHAPTER  IV.  A Sound at; the Door.  Only one thing I'recall distinctly In  connection with that night, after the  moment that brought the knowledge  and shock of my mother's death. It  seemed a trifle to stand out, while  other matters, more Important, perhaps, receded into the background  of my mind; yet the great events of Ufa  are reared on a .foundation of trifles.  . When  my' mother's   beautiful   dead  body.; In .all its bravery of mist-grey  crepe and glittering ;'stars of steel, waa  lifted from the sofa /where I had laid  her down to: die';-: I 'noticed something  that had passed unobserved before, ln  the excitement other coming and her  sudden, illness.  ,1 had half carried,; half dragged her  from the door to* the lounge, after she  had fallen against me, fainting, without removing the cloak that lay loosely over,-her shoulders,vahd when I  placed her on the sofa, the wrap lay  between -'.her-.'and; the nest of cushions.  ��������� /When they,took her,away it was still  there, and:as I stood staring dazedly  at the place where she had beenit was  suddenly: borne: in upon me that this  cloak was not the one which she had  worn to the theater;' I had never seen  It 'before.  .She had gone out in along, primrose-  tinted wrap of satin; brocaded' with  great marigolds in shining threads of  gold.' She came'home to die in at* short  wrap of lustreless blacksilk, lined with  a deep shade* of purple.  I shuddered at sight of the thing,  remembering the' black,-.jetted dress  worn by^ the .woman with the scar on  her arm, the woman whom I could not  help secretly regarding as my mother's murderess. I could not bear to see  it lying where mother had lain, and in,  a sudden passion I- seized the black,,  purple-lined garment and flung it  viciously from the sofa into a far cor-  ner-ofthe sitting-room, where it lay  ln *a heap on the-floor.       -   -'���������'  Next day my cousin, Roger Cope,  .came. He had inherited my 'father's  title long ago,'and was Sir Roger Cope.  An estate which went with the baronetcy had also gone to him; but he  had never lived there. The old home  by the sea, in Dorsetshire, which 1  loved, had been ,my mother's. , She  and my father were distant cousins,  and though Koger had inherited the  title, as next-of-kin, after my father's  death, he was even more) nearly related to my-mother.  . Very little money had gone to Roger  with the title and e'states, for my father had been poor, my mother rich, and  the new Sir Roger Cope-let his place ln  Dorsetshire, - living in/ town./ He was a  solicitor, and since mother and' I had  come to" London for my flrst season,  we had be������n twice invited to tea'at his  delightful old-chambers in the Temple."  When we. were" ready to leave the  Coburg Hotel���������Swift and I���������for the  sad Journey down to Dorsetshire, the  maid came to'me at:the;last moment,  carrying the black, purple-lined cloak  In her' hand.  "What is lt, miss?" she asked. "I  never saw It/before. It can't be yours  ���������or my poor lady's. Was lt���������what "she  wore home that night���������by mistake,  perhaps?" i_ , .,  "Yes,"  I answered.    "She wore    it  that night "  !Iwu about to add that" the thing  should be left ln the hoteli* where perhaps the owner .would one'day come to  inquire for: it, when I remembered that"  I_mlght-rep^a_c_h_m_7self_later for letting a possible clue to the ,w"omari~in  black pass out of my hands.  "Give the wrap to me," I said Instead.    "I should like to look at it."  Swift;laid the sombre folds.over my  arm, and I examined 'the purple lining for a pocket. There was one on  each' side, that on the left' long and  narrow, for. the, reception of a fan;  that on the right only large enough for  a purse and a handkerchief.'  I plunged my hand into one after  the: other, and; at first thought that  both were empty.' Bilt into the -corner  of the purse-pocket-was pushed atlny,'  crumpled bit of paper. I pulled,It' out,  smoothed lt between my fingers, and  saw that: I had possessed myself of a  small slip cut from' tho column of n  newspaper.  "Lady Cope and her only daughter,  Miss Sheila Cope," I redd, "are spending the'season at the Coburg Hotel, In  Carlos place."  This gave mc a now Idea. I rang  and sent;for the manager.:.. Of him ; 1  asked If it' would be possible to find  out;7 even now,' whether* anyone hud  coiled to see my mother'while we were  at the theater on the evening ot her  death.  In a few, moments word came back  that a lady had called. She had seemed  greatly disappointed at''-hearing'' thai  Lady Cope was out, and had inerulred  where she might bo found. Our box  tor the theater had been ordered by  telephone from the hotel, therefore the  lady had been Informed that we were  at the Lyceum. * ,  The lady had been tall, dark, dressed  and cloaked In black, and she had come  lha oab. /She had left no name, and  nothing further was known , about- her.  But, it was: enough to serve as an' answer to the question _I had asked. The  woman, in black hail, gone'to t>.ethea-  ter in expectation of seeing my moth-  jr, and for that purpose alone. The  meeting had not come about by chance.  No ono save the doctor who had  attended my mother. Swift, and myself,'  knew that anything mysterious had  happened that last night.

POLLY'S BIRTHDAY,  OO0<X><>OOOOO<>O<>OOO  Polly was a dear little girl who livid on a nice large farm with plenty  it chickens, sows and horses; but  Polly never thought nmiichabout how  nice all these.' were, for: her > father and  mother were always hard at work, and  Polly and: the rest of the children had  to help. Polly's two brothers worked  with their father, her sisters helped  her mother In the house, and Polly  washed the dishes, scoured the knives,  fed the chickens, and ran errands for  the family and.all the summer boarders besides.  . One of the boarders, Miss Gary, was -  watching Polly shell peas one morn-"  ing,: and thinking that she did a great  deal of work for such a little girl.   Finally she said: '���������  "How old are you, Polly?'*  "Seven,"  Polly  answered.  "You're almost eight," said I her  mother.  "When, Is her birthday?" Miss Cary  asked.  "Why, let me see, it's this. month  eome time,���������the seventeenth���������yes, the"  seventeenth ol July. I declare, I'd  have forgotten all about it if yon  hadn't a-spoke." And Mrs. Jones went  on with her work again.  "What's a birthday?" Polly asked  Bhyly." " '" ���������       -.  "  "Why, Polly," exclaimed Miss Cary-,  "don't you know? It's the anniversary of the day, you were born. Didn't  you ever ha*ve a birthday present,  Polly?"  "No," said Polly, looking' puzzled. '  "We never have much time for those  I things,"   Polly's   mother   said.     "It's  I 'bout7all I can do to remember. Christmas."  "Yes, I know," Miss Cary said; hut  she resolved that Polly should "have  a  birthday." - ���������  When she went down to breakfast  the next morning, Miss Cary met Polly In the hall, and, putting a little silk  purse into her hand, said kindly,  "Here, Polly, Is something for you to  buy birthday, presents with."  Polly opened the little hag, and  found ln lt eight bright silver quarters; and she ran as fast as she could  to tell her mother.  "Land Bakes,   child!"   her   mother  said;' "that's too much money for you  to spend.   Better save it.   It will buy  -you-a--"palr-cf-Bhees-and.ai_warm_hood_  this winter."  Almost any little girl would have  cried at this, and Polly's eyes did All  with tears; but, as her mother wanted  her to help "put the breakfast on,"  Polly took the plate of muffins into tha  dining room. Miss Cary noticed ths  wet l&Bhes,- "and said, "Mrs. Jones,  please let Polly go down to the store  to-day and spend her birthday money."  Mrs. Jones could not refuse this request. So, after she had put thc baby  asleep, Polly was allowed to go to the  Btore, which was a good two miles  away; but tho happy-little girl would  have ��������� willingly walked -five7 milea to  spend her precious two dollars.  V It wits late in /the afternoon when  she came back; and the boarders were  lounging about waiting for the supper  bell to ring. They all smiled ut the  little'flguro toiling up the* road;-/ with  her arms full of bundles. Polly smiled  radlontly:through the dust that covered her round little', face' as she called  to Miss Cary: "Oh! I've got such lots  of things. Please come* into tho kitchen and see."  ' "No, It's too warm there," Miss Cary  said. "Come into the parlor, whera  it's cool; and wo can: all sec."  So they went into tho house, und  Polly: commenced to unwrap her packages and exhibit her purchases.  "There," sho said, as she tore the paper from a queer-shaped bundle, "this  Is for ma," holding up an egg beater,  " 'cause it takes so long to beat an egg  With a fork."  The boarders looked at each other  In surprise, but Polly was too busy to  notice. She fairly beamed.as she bold  up a green glass necktie pin for inspection. "iBn't it lovely?" she said.  "It's for pa, so he'll wear a collar, like  ma wants him: to. Of course, he'll  want to wear - such*' an elegant pin;  and then he'd have to wear a" tie, and  then he'll have to wear a collar.  "This'Isn't much," she continued,  opening a small bundle, "only a rattle  for baby.   It only coBt five cents."  Tbe boarders looked on In silence as  ���������������������     !-���������������������������.      U������41. ������-_.._ ..xtl*^ Ik.  strings.    No  one    knew whether    IB  laugh or feel sorry.  It was wonderful what $2 would  buy, and not strange that the little,  girl had spent a whole half-day shopping. There was a blue tie for Brother,  Dan and a pink one for Tim, a yellow*'  hair-ribbon for Sister Linda, some  brass Tialrpins for grandma, a small  bottle of cologne for Jake, the "hired  man," and then there was but cuo  package left. Polly patted this lovingly before she opened it. "This is the  nicest of all, and It's for you," she  said, as she handed Miss Cary a box  of bright pink writing .paper. "lt  see.mod too bad that you only had plain  white paper to write your letters on.  When you write so lovely. So ! got  you this.    Ain't it grand?" i  "Why, it's beautiful, Polly, dear,"-  Miss Cary said; "but what have you  bought for yerar birthday present?"  "Why, these," said Polly���������"thasc aro  all my presents. Presents are somt-  ihlng we give away, aren't-thsy?" And  Polly looked around, wondering why  all were so still.  "It is more blessed to give than to  receive," said one ot the ladles softly.  The gentlemen looked out of the window, and Miss Cary put her arms  around Polly and kissed the hot, dusty  little face many times.  "It's been a lovely day," Polly said,  as she distributed her last alft. "t  .never had any bresents to give away  berore, and I think birthdays are just  lovely."  The next month, after Miss Cary  had returned to the city, she had a  birthday; and there came to Polly a  most wonderful', doll, with lots of  beautiful clothes, and a card saying,  "For Polly, on my birthday, from Lena Cary," which, by the way, immediately became the doll's name.  And Miss Cary was not the only  one who'caught'Polly's idea of a birthday, for the rest of the boarders remembered Polly's presents, and  through'the year, as each one's birthday came, Polly received a gift to delight her generous little heart. ,  - When the seventeenth ot July camo  around again though Miss Cary was  not:at.the farm, she sent Polly,a little  silk bag with nine silver quarters in  it, and Polly still thinks "birthdays  are lovely."���������Mrs. S. J. Maxwell, in  the Ladles'Home Journal.  Literature's Anticipations of  Scie. ce.  CUtTV-Owcllcr's' House With 1,000 Room*.  The archaeological treasures of tho  United States'are seemingly inexhaustible. This is especially so in the great  Southwest region ot this country, the  home ot primitive man and the cliff  dve.ller. / .  The latest traveler and . explorer to  penetrate ��������� this wonderfully -picturesque  region and who has brought back new  glimpses of these pre-historlc peoples  is Rev. Dr. Cole, of Los Angeles, Cal.  The Doctor, who ,1s an enthusiastic  archaeologist, has' just'returned from a  three month's journey among tho  ruined ancient dwellings of southeastern Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.  The most prominent and Interesting  feature of Dr. Cole's trip was the discovery of an immense cliff palace or  communal dwelling securely lodged  underneath an ���������overhanging ledge ot  almost perpendicular cliff / along'; the  banks of the Santa Re river in New  Mexico,  The ascent to this lofty rock' tenement was made by niches cut out ot  the solid rock of the cliff.  ' One.thousand feet of hazardous and  toilsome climbing was necessary to go  up the sheer wall of the precipice before the first ruins were reached.  Here a, giant community house ot four  stories was found in a fair state of  preservation. , :  There were some 1,600 rooms in the  '/house, and in its prime It is estimated  toi have sheltered five to six thousand  people. ��������� On digging in some of the  rooms & number of -bones ��������� and skeletons were unearthed.' One, & woman's  femur, nineteen inches long, showed a  giantess seven and" a*' half feet tall.  Pieces of prehistoric pottery and  household implements, stone axes and  agate arrow points were also found.  On both sides of the huge ruins were  great towers running up to the fourth  story, still showing the'loop holes  through' which the, besieged inhabitants 'showered agate-tipped arrows���������  their _only; weapons - of defence���������upon  the. heads' of the Invad Ing enemy.  *~Frbnjrthese-rock-tawers=.the-inhablr_.  tants could hold their own against a  superior, force, fighting downward with  undiminished������������������;advantage' .to: the enemy  or savage foe who would have to scale  up  the unprotected wall.  Safety seems to have been the prime  motive for the cliff dweller in building  their homes in these Impregnable and  almost Inaccessible :places, for they  evidently were harassed eternally by  .wily and merciless savages.  These 'cliff houses were well stored  with corn, whose mummied cobs are  still found,'as also'are numerous wells,  which .show that they had abundance  of water. The exact time of the cliff  and fortress dwelling, people Is still  one of conjecture.  Long before Columbus was sailing  for our: shores, or tbo landing ot the  Spaniards a few years afterwards, these  nborlglnai folk were living In their  high perched rock dwellings from four  to live stories In height and containing  from three to live hundred rooms. /All  of the architectural peculiarities were  for the purpose of defence.  Tho lower story was a    dead wall,  which    no    enemy using    aboriginal  weapons could demolish. The upper  stories were reached by ladders which  were afterward drawn up.

With painful i'lequency the ile.ith  returns of this city bring home the  thought that* new nnel better regulations to govern tho practice of surgery  are needed here. It is not a mattei* of  indifferent opinion or of idle sentiment;  it is a call for reform that means life or  death.  The medical profession is enlilled to  Lhe sincere icspcctof the community.  The value of its services is incnlciiliihle.  The story  of  its   patient  research, its  learning, its courage, ils self sacrifice,  its   kindness, its 1 b.-irily. is not lobe  told in a book or in ;i library of books.  The wonderful progress made in recent  years in surgery was one of .the proud  boasts   of   the last five   years  of   the  nineteenth   century.      Hut   shall this  blind our eyes   lo   lhe   fact   that   tlie  number   of    victims   slain     by    the  dreaded  disease smallpox  during the  last three years in   which   it lias been  so common in Washington is not to be  compared with   the nuuibor of   lliose  wbo have died in   any   one   of   these  three years under  or from the elYeet'.-  of the surgeon's knife?  is it noi time to call a hall?

One of the sorrows of childhood is  the slowness of some older people to  take *a hint.

At the first production of Augustus  Thomas's dramatization of Richard  Harding* Davis's "Soldiers ot Fortune,"  at New Haven, Itobert Edeson. tha  star, made the first speech to the cheering Yale boys. Then there were calls  for Richard Harding Davis, author o������  " the novel, and Augustus Thomas, who  had dramatized It. A large, smooth-  shaven man, -who tallied with the descriptions of the novelist, appeared and  thanked the students for their kind  reception of his "book in play form, said  he hoped it would awaken new interest  ln  the book,  enlarging    its    sale, and  ���������"that-he"w'buld"Iike~tb~ha"ve_irr.~Tlioh"Ta3"  dramatize his latest novel, "In the  Fog," whieh name he impressed upon  possible buyers. About a third of the  nudience knew that the man who had  represented himself to them aa Davis  was really *Mr. Thomas. The rest saw  the joke'when Mr. Davis came out and  said: "Of course this reception is. very  gratifying, but I don't think my dramatization ot Jlr. Davis'? story is particularly good. But then, to a man who  has written a. play like 'Arizona,' that  bas been successful all over America,  and recently was praised by the King  and .Queen of England, eirnmatizln-y a  novel by a mere Richard Harding Davis seems unimportant and trivial."

The other party maintains  that tha visible supply of metal is  rapidly decreasing, and thut a Clipper  famine is liable to set in at any funs.  It is to be noted that these extremists  aie, as a rule, interested in copper or  copper shares, speculatively, the hulls  believing copper is scarce, while the  bears are confident that copper is .soon  to become a drug in the market.  "While the copper  situation   is   not  altogether clear, and there   are   some  features, of  a  peculiar,   not  to   say  suspicious, nature, it may be said, the  metal market is more clearly   normal  thftn at any   time   for   the   past  two  years. . The immense reserves accumulated by   tho   United   Metals   Selling  Company have been   greatly reduced.  The copper that was  accumulated   at  Perth,     Amboy,     Baltimoie   and al  various lake and western points by the  United Company six   to  nine months  ago has been scattered through many  American factories and abroad.     It is  questioned whether the largo stocks of  copper  sent  abroad   have    actually  entereel   into   consumption,   or  were  shipped for speculative purposes,   anel  hang o lev the market  as  a   menace.  There   are   very   positive   assertions,  from  sources   usually well   inforined,  that the foreign  shipments ofr copper  have entered into consumption, while  on the other  hand it   is   pointed   out  that ��������� the   increase     in   consumption  indicated   by   foreign   shipments     is  abnormal and altogether .improbable.  To a certain1 extent, both   assertions  " are true.'and the apparent discrepancy  in   the   statements..iscorrelated, by  another factor that has not beeu made  as"*prominent  as   its   importance   deserves.       Beginning, in   1S9S,   when  copper   first   reached   a   high    price,  consumers,'both -abroad" and in   the  United States,   curtailed  stocks   and  followed.a   policy  of hand-to-mouth  buying, in the hope of a drop in prices  in the near  future.-- When - the evidences of accuiniilat'ng   stocks of   the  ...sales   agencies   became   numerous in  "'the summer andfall of last year   wise  consumers > still'   further    restricted  purchases and literally bought", for 'a  Mew days only at a titiio.     This policy  cut stocks in the hands   of   manufacturers to the lowest, pi oportions   ever  ' known   and   further added    to    the  - unwieldy surplus carried   by   producing  interests.-      When   the price   of  copper   was  cut,   by   successive   and  rapid    gradations,     to.'   11     emits,  manufacturers   began    accumulating  . considerable stocks.       Some   bought  earlier than others, but practically all  have.bought in sufficient- quantities to  permit the carrying of a good working  surplus of tha metal." yIn certain lines  of copper, notably in wire bars ot lake  copper, stocks on hand   are   comparatively sjnull antl the'demand brisk.  Suimiioel up, the ti_ metal situation  niay be said to ha us follows: The  ___Stqck___e_fi rripd_hy__producers __.is much  smaller than' one year ' ago, anel no  longer ot sufficient size to menace the  future'price, while the stocks carried  by consumers' are several times as  great ag one ye.'ir.'ugo, and are now  sufficiently, - large' to protect the  manufacturers from any sudden twist  in the market, - This condition" of  affairs by which, the unused supply  of copper is carried joiutly ' by consumers und producers, isugiiaia'uteeof  stability.' It is' not to" lio inferred fiom  this statement that .the .piice.of the  metal cannot or1 wiii not fluctuate, for  such fluctuations are always occurring  in a normal market fcrauyciimmodity  hut violent anil sudden changes are  pre von ted so long as manipulative  influences nro not tuking part in the  Waking ot prfccs. J}y veasfjn pf each  party having pmisidemble copper on  band neither can take any unfair  advantage of the other andtlie surplus  now carried by the producers is not so  3 large that they - must sell, at any  figure obtainable iu order to realize  cash for imperative expenses.    ' ''  There'have been many estimates  prepared, by various authorities on  popper cpsts, pfoflts rtijd- probable  prices fop the ffitiire. q'huse tfibles, as  HjigJif 1)0 anticipated., yayy greatly  gflpppding to personal bias and the  pjftont, OF lack, of. exnpt information  possessed hy the est.. Hfttgr- ft should  be, berne in wind, frowevac, that (.he  cost of making copper has largely  Increased within tho past few years  in the United States, Canada and  Mexico, while .there havo been in-  cueasod, not bo great, but quite  market, J������ the case of the copper  mines of other cpuntr|P������r Thn actual  cost of production averages pro|.uh|y  two cents per ppnnd greatcj.* tjiup si*  years ago, and this factor must be  kept   in   mind   in   the preparation of  tables of costs. Tn the case of the  mines of the United States, 11 cents  per pound early this year, was really  lower, measured by costs of making,  than D cents per pound in 1SUI.  Tlie iuture price of copper depends  upon such a great number of factors  t.ial predictions aiu ultra hazardous.  Should all the mines thut hope to  make cheap copper curry out the  promises, the.- metal would fall tn  lower iiiiirkut quotations than ever  before known, but the majority of the  new mines will not be able uTdo what  is claimetl for them. There are many  misleading articles on copper Hints  appearing in the -daily and llniinci.il  press, and these errors are [req.ient.ly  found in technical publication.*, thai  .-hoii'd be better supplied with information. Tlio United Veule mine in  Arizona, is '���������written up" nearly every  day in the year, and perhaps once u  month the truth is told ahoul the  pioperty. This mine is not* the  personal property eif Sjiiator Clark, of  Montana, as usually staled, though it  is rout rolled bv him. It lines not, pay  hiin, or anyone a million dollars  monthly in profils, as so frequently  claimed. The gold anel silver values  elo not leave the copper'a liy product,  made without cost, aud iiuliotly lias  ever refused live millions of dollars  for it, as is set forth in a hoary headed  fiction still going the rounds of the  pi ess.  There are mines in Utah producing  copper, silver and gold, thut can make  copper for four to six cents per pound,  counting gold and silver us by-products  and deducting their values from the  eost of uiukiifg copper. . These mines,  while of importance, are relatively  small, anel their costs cannot greatly  affect the general uvurugi*. J'hi*  Btifloii ���������& "Montana and Anacoiiela  mines of Butle. derive large silver  values fiom their ores, and sundry  other American mines henelit gieatly  by gold and silver seemed as byproducts. It may be safely said,  however, that there ure no American  mines that secure copper as byproduct, without cost, in cases wheie  the copper production is of suQU'iunt  size to entitle the mine to rank among  properties nf the fiist, second or third  class, measured by annual production.  A price.of ..13 or li ceiifs per [pound  will enable all of the lending copper  producers of the1 United States to run  at a profit.' Siime of _ the. mines now  prodiiciiig.cannot make copper at such  figures, and many of the developing  mines wMI find, themselves unable to  earn profits unless higher prices can  be secured. There are probably  enough mines, however, capable of  paying their way with copper at 13 or  14 cents, to supply the normal require-'  nients of thVmarket.. ""   . ���������  The stimulus of .high prices. is  reflected very-.plainly in the.figuresinl':  production f.pfs 1001. Norway. Japan'  and South Africa"are the'only.coutries  producing copper to-lhe extent of-1000  ro'ns"' or more in ]0()!). that did tic t'  increase their outputs in 1901.

Everybody admires Heroism. Tlio  qualities of character whicli hurl ono  to the foretront i.i a critical moment,  careless of danger, reckless of conso-  fluer.cw. cl.ilm our uii.-tliiteil applause.  Hut ir. tho emergency, when tlie air  jrlbrate.? with excitement, a man becomes intoxicated with courage, ordinary soldiers do deed*, which would graco  n god of Olympus nml the coward la  no rare an exccjilion that lie becomes  invisible. Human nnturc, when Impelled  bv a strong passion or a noble ambition,  surprises itself. The poor village lout  has a capacity for endurance and brilliant work wliieli need* only timo and  incentive to become divine. Tlie rattle  bf musketry is tho stimulus to great  ���������achievement. The perilous expedition,  ?witli sudden death lurking in ambush,  Will always lind volunteers.  Man ii a rude, crude, but grand sort  of creature, with the making of an  archangel in him. There i.s a mcttlo  in his soul which lias not vet been  Sully called forth. He Is a Toledo  blade which llio hot (ire of circumstance will some time temper. He is  nobler than he knows or ever can know  ���������until he Is forced to show himself by  opportunity.  So much for physical heroism. It  is generally exhibited in the. gaze of  tbe woild. There is another kind,  however, nml n higher kind, which  never sees the light of day���������the  quiet heroism of an obscure life. The  majority of our heroes aud heroines will  be unknown to us until we get to heaven. They are not now walking: on hilltops, where tliey can be observed of all  men, but are living quietly and sacrilic-  ing patiently in their narrow sphere,  waiting for the peace and rest'which will  come "at eventimc." I have known  many such., and have never looked Into  their sad faces without thinking that  there is a courage, to which that of tha  battlefield is a trivial circumstnnce, the  courage which endures with resignation and meets inevitable suffering and  misfortune with a calmness which is  ���������God's best gift.  Here, for example, is a woman who  Ion her wedding day saw nothing but  blue' sky and sunshine. It seemed as  though no shadow could throw itself  across her path. A light heart and  lips of laughter���������nothing more. Bhe  did not know her own strength, for she  bad never been tested. But the avalanche swept down the mountain sldo  end crushed and buried all Iier hopes.  Xhe day was turned to night, and even  the stars refu.-ed to come out. Sickness, death, poverty followed in logical  ��������� succession. She was face to face with a  bard world, her children crying for  bread. The friends of other days had  their attention called elsewhere, and  they saw her not. Alone in the struggle ! And yet she bravely set to work,  won her way to a livelihood, walked  her lonely- path iu calm conlidence that  God still lived, brushed away the tears  and grappled with fate. -The struggle  bos told on iier, for  her  hair is grey,   &nd_there^is^a look-in .her faee_.whlch_  comes  only   from   sorrow hard to bear.  You  do   not   know -her, - or  'perhaps  care to know her,  but that life Is one  long list of heroisms, and when we all  get yonder and look back on the past  We shall    see lhe  path    she has travelled,  the upward  climb  of  her  years,  etnd give her the meed of prai.-e which  a thoughtless and ignorant ..world  now |  refuses.    There are no  nobler qualities  cf character than    her    uncomplaining  endurance, her  persistent  patience  and  ter   undiinmed   faith.    The   future   has  crowns   for   such   souls,   and   God   and  the   angi:t3   walk   with   them   on   their  way  to the New Jerusalem.  1 know a man who has given his life  to an aged parent, and another who  has been forbidden for years, shut in  from the pleasures whieh we most prize,  and still another whose life lias been  a long sacrifice for his childien, and  another who���������hut why continue the  list! ] do but remind you of a similar  instance  within  your  own knowledge.  To meet such a fate as that requires  the sublinicnt courage, not the courage  of despair, but the co.iirage of faith.  There arc flowers even in such-byways  as Hies/*. jo*-s which cheer the heart  and spoiA oi happiness like oases in the  dcicrt. It is stiange, hut the presence  of God and the conscious companionship of angel.- can bring bright days  snd slairy'niglit-s. It is not our surrounding*. :iftcr nil. that bring peace,  for if peace is in the heart it throws  ils light over all.  The root and foundation of this  JicroUm is religion. There must be  faith that above us and around us are  helping anil e\ 'ering influences, that  earth and hen\i*n arc within telepathic  distance of eaeh other, and that what  __i.rcr.gtli v.i- need will-he given us for  the asking if wc arc to meet sorrow  and mi'-forlnni. with quiet fortitude.  And the mere we realize the presence  of Cod. the easier' it is to bear burdens. If we. could once catch a  jrhmpse of an angel's** face���������and some  tell me lhey hnve done this���������we should  lie  light-hear'*-*d  even  in   the  dark.    At  His Estimate or Cromwell.  *   Liout.-Goneral  Sir "William Butler recently lectured to the Irish Literary Society  on "The Croinwclliau war in Ireland."      After a  sketch of  the fnmous  campaign couched in the severest terms,  Sir   Williuin   proceeded   lo   express   his  view   of   Cromwell.       His   appreciation,  maiked a.s it is by nn enviable power of  explosion, in as lollows :���������l''or some 00  or  00  years,  he  snid,  il.  had   been  the  fashion  of the  lime to .speak o^ Cromwell ns one. ol the. greiile.-t of men.     >'or  qnile 200 year.*, before our lime not one  historian, not one writ or nl nny eminence,   had   had   anything   good   to   any  about   him.      Hut  we  had   changed  all  that.       Ills   eulogizcr**.    cuulil     liow   hn  counted  by  (he  thousand,  his admirers  by the million.      Ile had already quoted  a*letter, written by Cromwell i-oine years  before  he  hccnnic  famous,  in  whicli   lie  said,   "Who  goelli   lo  war  nt.  his  own.  cost }"     Thnt was the keynote of Cromwell's character.     The two chief objects  or his ell'ort were plunder and persecution.     He and his were the saints ; they  were to possess the earth.     All the rest  were sinners ; they were to be despoiled,  east out, persecuted.     Who could count  the onths taken by him nnd broken by  him ?     lie swore allegiance to the King,  but he cut his head oil'.     He swore to  support the  Parliament, hul   he betrayed it and turned it out of doors. He swore  to the Scottish covenant, hut he destroyed it.      He swore to uphold  the liber-  tics and  rights of  his country, but ho  trampled upon the one and betrayed the  other.      Standing    in  his place    in the  House of Commons with his hand upon  his heart, he swore.in the presence of  Almighty God, that he knew thc army  would disband and lay down their arms  nt the door of tlie House whenever tho  Parliament should command them to do  so, and within 24 hours he was in the  midst  of   that   army   inciting   them   to  fresh delinnee of that Parliament, Could  uny instance of bypocii-y mutch this���������  thnt he had prayed nu his knees to Cod  for  thc  lite of Charles  until  his  tongue  clove to the roof of his mouth, by whicli  he saw that Coil had willed the death of  the  Ring ?      He averred that, he was a  most, upright and conscientious man to  his Iving anil he prayed that God would  be pleased to look upon him (Cromwell)  according to   the  sincerity  of  his heart  to thc King., and at that moment Cromwell had the. death of thc King planned,  lie was absolute muster of every  trick  of tongue, gesture, expression  by whicli  man could deceive his fellow.     He could  weep at will, pray, preach, nllirin. swear,  cajole,  belie, act the.  buffoon  with the  corporal,   play   schoolboy     tricks   wliile  signing thc  death-warrant  of  the King,  commit the.  most appalling deed,  with  the name of Cod upon his lips and the  Bible in his hand.      He was the greatest  dissembler that history held record of.  While  raving  of   liberty  he   suspended  in turn every liberty   that    .-.nglMimcn  had ever known���������representation in Parliament, trial by jury, taxation with con-  sent.cvcrything that the people had gained and valued.    He proposed to sell St.  Va til's to the dews for a .synagogue.   He  sold hundreds of English gentlemen and  thousands of Irishmen, women and children' to West Indian     planters    to  he i  slaves.    He  arrested  and  locked  up  in  the Tower  the three counsel of a London  merchant  who  was prosecuted   lor  having refused  to pay taxes which had  not  been   voted   by  I'nrlitiiiicnt.     When  confronted with all  this perfidy he  fell  upon  his knees in  the  House  of Commons and took a  solemn oath  thnt it  was untrue,    lie wns false to  his own  chosen band  of supporters nnd  to  the  inner circle of his friends; and to each \  one of those parties whom he deceived  in   turn   he  used   the  same   solemn   asseverations of rectitude,  piling perjury  upon periury such as no    age. had  ever  seen before.    Did he. deceive even himself ?    That question  wc could  not answer.    It was possible that having deceived every one���������enemies, friends, comrades���������he had  come at last to deceive  himself.   The world held no greater failure  in  its  history  than  our  civil   war.  The result was that the King lost his  head   and  the  Parliament    liist   every  Blircd of privilege and liberty it had ever  possessed.     For   years   Cromwell   ruled  the land with heavy sword and hooted  foot.   He abolished "the House of Lord".,  Made Good Soldiers.  Writing ln The Upper Canada Times,  A.W.I', gives an entertaining sketch of  thn mountaineers of Virginia, in tho  course of which he tells the following  slury :���������Dining llie .war with Spain an  ntlumpt was in;ide to enroll a mouninin  regiment In West Virginia. Indeed these  lean, iiercc, slouching bnekswoodsmen  should niiike superb irregular lighter.?.  Hut red tape demanded that they .should  be drilled, and drilled tliey were, at  Charleston. Hut tho wen ther was warm  ami ninny were met together, and to a  mountaineer heat and society suggest  corn whisker. So alter a long, and  lie;irtbreaking"day for perspiring ollieers  and files of the guard, the whole regiment "guessed they'd quit," broke ranks  and surged into town���������a thirsty wave.  A sweeping operation a la Kitchener  landed tlircc hundred in tlio guardhouse before sunrise, nnd the prospects  were, bright, for the capturo of all, when,  mirnhilc dictu, thc guard-house rose, in  air, showed for a moment like a giant  cenliprde,- then was tilted over by many  willing hands, and the parched three  hundred again swept down to spread  Chaos and Old Niglit iu Charleston.  ���������'Vntov-Br   In   lie   Itnlc."  This tale, according to The Philadelphia Times, was told by Judgo  l'ennypaeker; who has an excellent reputation as a maker of fervid anti-Brilf-  ish snecehes, in beginning a response to  n tonst at. a Vennsyivanfii German banquet, in Philadelphia. The story, he  said, showed the readiness of the Pennsylvania Dutchman to obey those in  authority. It also casts some light upon  the occurrences of thc American civil  war, and goes lo suggest that even  "fnrm-liiiriiing" is not absolutely unprecedented:���������  In 1804 Sheridan, under orders, burned every barn I'roni a valley above  Staunton to a certain point below Winchester.

The hostess did hoi notice il,  however, and she said to him amiably: .  ���������*Xuw. do tell me .when wc may have  the pleasure of having you dine with  us again'."  "Immediately, madam, immediately."  was his unexpected reply.

The station ordered visits to forty-three towns  and villages' and has purchnscd samples  of food products from each. The results showed that the custom of adulterating with chemical preservatives nnd  chemical dyes Is more prevalent limn  is generally imagined. Of 240 samples  of milk bought, twenty-one were ndult-  cruted wilh chemical preservatives. Of  110 samples of tomato catsup, sauce,  etc., 00 were adulterated with dyes of  ccal tar' origin, and of 00 samples of  jams nnd jellies, 21 were adulterated in  a similar manner. Many of these dyes  nre most injurious to " health.

I like to fuss wilh calves. 1 like the  calves because 1 like good cows ami realize the fact that the foundation of a  good cow is a good calf. .Sometimes I  come across a good' cow that can bo  bought at a reasonable price, but the  surest way to get a good cow is to  raise her trom a calf of known parentage. There are people who yet believe  they cnn feed butter fni into milk. My  experience, however, is that when you  have a cow that gives blue milk, blue  milk she will make, even on the richest kind of food, and when it is given  to her in fullest supply. And when yo'u  hnve a cow that gives lieh, creamy milk  thnt butter-makers and milk-consumers  like, rich milk she will give, even .if  she has nothing but cornstalks or poor  hay to eat. Feed determines the quantity of milk, while' the blood of the animal determines thc milk's richness. For  that reason it docs not pny to bother  with calves of blue milk stock (unless  for selling milk, and hardly then). Nor  docs it pay to fuss with a' calf that, for  nny reason is lacking in individual  .vigor. '.  But any vigorous heifer calf of good  slock is too good for the butcher when  it is so easy to make n. good cow out of  it in not more trmn two years' time. The  Guernseys and Jerseys have the reputation   of  giving  the  richest  milk.    But  there is yet a    great'difference in this  respect in individual cows, or, perhaps,  rather, in cow families.   Just at present  I am raising a calf from a Jersey dam,  whose milk  contains more butler    fi't  than 1 have ever  seen  in  milk  before.  .Not   having  much   milk   on  whicli    to  bring  this calf  up,  I have  tried    milk  substitutes,   espeeiallv     clear     flaxseed  meal and a calf meal.    I    began giving  flaxseed meal on the third day by the  teaspoonful, gradually increasing to two  handfuls at a feed in the fifth or sixth  week.    The meal was put into  a pail,  and boiling water put on it, making a  thin soup, which was mixed with what  skim milk I could spare for the purpose  and fed blood warm.    At six weeks of  age the calf meal���������which seems to consist mostly of flaxseed meal or oil meal  '���������was-substituted-for-thc-flaxseed-meal,.  two good handfuls at a. feed.   This calf  also Tccclres dry bran and other ground  firains,  and   eats   several   handfuls  out  of it������ pail, some    cut. clover hay. etc,  and has done so well that T helieve it  possible to bring up good calves practically without milk, except for  a  short  time on the start.���������T.

The first was the introduction of spraying, which had now bo-  conic so univBrsal u practice that it was  not thought necessary to advocate  it at the meeting-.

Some people can't wear a bustle  without knowing ln what period of our  evolution a taste for humps was  evolved, but for me, I'd go on all four3  without a question if it became the  style. And wlien Mrs. Mervlne���������she  was Mls3 Henry then���������married Mr.  Mervlne, I did a little quiet rejoicing  all privately In my own room. You see,  George and Miss Henry hnd had an affair, and, by the way.I hadn't thought  of lt before, but maybe that Is why I  never liked her. But then, according  to that, I shouldn't have liked George,  either. Two things equal to each other  are equal to themselves, Isn't it? Or  something like that. No, don't explain  It to me, I couldn't understand In a  week, and. besides, I want to tell you  what saved Mrs. Mervlne.

There was nothing Comtlan or  Kantian about them. A babe In arms  aould have understood them. One was  that servants should not be tipped.  Another, that a man should get his  money's worth wherever he went. Another, that a woman wbo had attained  her growth was old enough to take  care ot herself, and so. on and so on.  Any one of these was a.principle for  ���������which he declared himself ready to  perish at the stake... Mrs. Mervlne  knew all about these principles before  she married him, but she didn't realize  their Import, and she went up to the  altar pink and smiling and thinking  how she waa going to spill his money  about.  ���������How do I know what "she thought?  Didn't I tell you that I feel things���������lots  of them���������without ever knowing them?  We alTwent down to. the" station with  them.

Just then the bell rang for the train  to start. , Poor. ,oldvMr. Mervine was  bom, you know,, ages before, trains  were thought of,' and he'always had a.  panic about catchlngone. Well, he forgot everything except' that '-.he wa3  scheduled to catch that train, and he  .whisked through the gate alone, galloped down the "track and threw himself on the platform. Of course, there  wasn't anything lefit for Mrs. Mervine  to do but to make a hasty explanation  to the gatekeeper and sail down after  him. She scrambled on to. the rear  platform, with the aid of 'the porter,  and never turned to wave us good-by.  We threw the old shoes and rice at a  young couple that came in on the local  and stopped behind a load of trunks to  kiss.  Mamma and I went abroad that year,  and I had almost forgotten the old  Relic and his bride until one day ln  Paris I heard an American voice. It  ���������was at.a kiosk where I was buying a  magazine, and there was the Relic  flourishing the Paris edition of the  "Herald," trying in execrable French  to have lt exchanged for a "Gallgnanl"  ot the same date. The'old woman who  ^ kept the booth imagined herself threat-  -~ened"by'a~mahlac-or"ari~a*ssasslnirand"  was about to call a gendarme, when I  interfered and explained. The Relic  1 was profuse ln his thanks, but begged  ��������� that since I had already been so kind,  .would I do yet a little more and see if  I could' not Induce the' old ' woman' to  take the "Herald,'.' wihlch he.had read.  In exchange for the "GallgnanI," which  he desired to* read.r I glanced across the  ' way, and saw Mrs. Mervlne seated on  one of the publio benches watching us  with'narrowed eyes, which she averted  aa I turned toward her. She was gorgeously, dressed; and I' saw she had a  band full of new diamonds, but her  Dace was absolutely colorless and' her  eyes looked bright and hot as "If * ahe  hadn't been able to have a good cry  lor a year. I knew the Relic's principles were getting on Mrs. Mervlue's  serves, and I slipped a lew sous into  the 'old woman's hand and gave tho  Relic his "GallgnanI."  He was quite embarrassing in his  gratitude, and summoned Mrs. Mervlne  with a sort of whistle, such as one uses  ln emergencies for hackmen or motor-  men. She had learned the signal well,  for she came up promptly, with a look  In" her eyes' as If she expected to see  gbosts." She was quietly, cordial, saying and acting the correct thing, as  she had always done, but it didn't occur to me until afterwards how weakly she had seconded his effusive invitation for us to "dine with them.  Mamma, you know, is always quite  unhappy on the Continent. She misses  her morning oatmeal and ice water,  and, most of all, someone to whom she  can talk English; so, whenever wo  meet an American, I have all I can do  to prevent her legally adopting him  into the- family. ' So, when the Relic  Insisted on having us dine with them,  mamma joyously consented. It was arranged that they, should call for us at  our hotel, and from there ive were to  go to the Palais Royal and later to the  Comedle Francalse.  Well, they came on time���������In an old  voiture with a drunken driver who had  1 agreed to take them for less than the  regular tariff.- The Relic has a morbid  habit of demonstrating everywhere  that he knows more than any other one  or two human beings about him, so wo  had no sooner started than he began  to declare to the "cooher" that he wa*  driving us ln a roundabout way in or  der to consume time <*n0 eurn a larger  fare. The "cocher" had traveled Paris  drunk and sober for forty years, he  told ine, and when he forgot, his horso  knew anyway, but the*moro the Relic  argued, the more convinced he became  thnt there was a deep plot on hand to  rob hiin, and it ended by our stopping  anil calling a gendarme, who called another, who called'another, and they all  pei tormed a sort of autopsy over us,  while every gamin in Paris walked  around us and made comments. You  know thorn.  At last we were sent on our way, the  Relic yet unconvinced, and Mrs. Mervlne pale and trying to smile. Poot  mamma's eyes had fairly popped out of  hor head, and she held my hand and  trembled as if we wero going to the  guillotine. At the Palais Royal thc  driver .Insisted on being paid for tho  time consumed during the autopsy, but  we fled Into one of the little jewelry  shops, where I talked like a grapho-  phone, from sympathy .for poor Mrs.  Mervlne. At last the Relic came, looking copperler than ever. But there���������  you're looking tired.  No, I'll not tell you all the details. It  was too awful. Poor Mrs. tMervine  looked ae If she wanted to die then,  and how she lived with him for four  years after I don't know. You see, he  bouiced Into the restaurant ahead of  us .ind plunged down ln the first chair.  Then he grabbed the menu and gavo  his own order to the waiter, explaining  that his wife would take the same, but  that one order would suffice for both.  He fairly drowned himself ln his "vln  ordinaire," trying to get his money's  worth. Before we left, he gathered up  the few extra lumps of sugar and pocketed them, declaring that when he paid  for a thing he liked to have it. As we  prepared to leave, the waiters lined up  to receive their customary fee, but tha  Relic was true to his principle, and  not for millions would I again run the  gauntlet of their withering scorn as  we crawled out, like so many worms.  I don't remember just what happened  at the theater. Some of the Revolutionary blood of our ancestors, never  before agitated, was stirring in mamma's veins, and she looked like the  pictures of frontier women about to  attack Indians. I didn't want her to  claw the Relic there. And poor Mrs.  Mervine. I forgot George then, and  the affair, and all her evil gloating  over us when she captured the Relic,  but I couldn't have felt more wretched  for a soul ln purgatory.  I remember him scrapping with the  woman who takes care of the wraps  for a couple of sous, and I remember  being marched into the theater, the  only ones in the house with hats. I  remember him scooting down ahead of  us and jumping Into his, seat. He  wouldn't buy a programme, lt'was another principle of his, ahd he didn't  understand a word. He went to sleep,  and when 'he was folded back over the  seat with his mouth hanging open,  snoring gently (an usher would have  jerked us out if he had snored loudly),  Mrs. Mervine looked "a bit more natural, and asked me about everyone at  home���������everyone but George.  I don't remember how we got home.  I know mamma said things I had never  taught her, and I know I had to put a  hot water bag to her feet and an icecap on her head.  A day or so afterward I met them  again at the Invalldes. You know how  the Continentals are about their treasures. There are as many cast-iron rules  about seeing.them as a presentation at.  court,'and onerof them is that no oim  shall enter Napoleon's'tomh without  removing his hat. Well, the Relic had  another principle. He'd have died for  it along with the others. That one  was not to take off his hat to anything  that was not "American." 'When I saw  him at the Invalldes that day, he was  coming down the marble stairs too rapidly for it to have been spontaneous.  I knew he had been trotting out one of  his principles, and the French guardo  had been enforcing theirs.  Poor Mrs. Mervine! I get quite  maudlin yet when I think of her face  as she stumbled down tho steps after  him.       . -  Mamma met them once after that, in  London. ; He was puffing along the  Strand with an unibrella held over him  and one under his arm. The one over  him was to protect him from the rain,  the other one-was to assist, him In  making a way through the crowd. Mrs.  Mervine was followlng'umbrellaless behind, majestically as always, as though  she 'didn't know liiat his umbrella was  pouring ��������� rivers _ over her.. Mamma  "leaned-out-of "fhe-carriage~to���������speak1  month to buy one of her ktmonis. and,  naturally, I can never, never trust him  again; but 1 understood tne liuslneas  at a glance. You see, she hadn't loved  George a bit, but when alio was isolated with the Relic for something over  a year, all the old Eve nml Delilah and  Mrs. Potiphar in her came to the surface. She just had to be. loved by some  one, and the more she thought about  It, tho more she became convinced that*  George was It.  Perspicacious? Thank you. I've been  telling you one can soo some things  without a searchlight. W'hat did I do?  Well, first I locked that letter in my  desk and then I put on my mauve  grenadine���������the one, you know, with the  Renaissance yoke and the embroidered  flounce. I had Thompson rub up Major  and the coupe and the harness until  they shone like silver. Then I went to  call on Mrs. Mervlne. A shabby butler  in a greasy coat opened the door. The  hall was dusty, and everything was  upside down. You know, as soon as  you go In a house you cnn tell whether  the people are happy or not.  I had arrayed myself to go and demolish Mrs. Mervine with my wifely  dignity, and to give her Sunday-school  advice from the heights, but when I  went into the drawing-room I found  her there, crouching over a steam radiator. She was thin and blue and  wretched, and I just went up to her  and threw my arms about her���������forgot  my Renaissance yoke entirely���������and 1  said: "Oh, you poor, little, battered  thing!" And I kissed -her, and she  didn't resent It, and then we cried.  I think we must have cried a gallon,  and then it seemed so funny, and we  both laughed a while, and then I think  we cried some more. Anyway, it did  us both loads of good, and then we  talked It over. I explained to her that  George and I were married, and that  he couldn't do a thing, but that I could  do something, and that I would; and  when I proposed that we go to mamma's for a month or so, she'couldn't  speak for gratitude. I told her I was  going home to tear up the letter, and  that the rack or thumb-screws couldn't  make me tell George anything about  it. You can understand, when she saw  lt from my standpoint, it seemed very  silly, and she wouldn't have had  George know It for worlds.  The next day I carried her off to  mamma's. The easons I gave George  for taking Mrs. Mervlne with me made  no mere'"tlssue of falsehood." It would  have supported an elephant. When ona  begins to -fabricate, it's silly to leav������  holes big enough .to throw you.  We stayed there a month, and we  talked the prospects over in every possible light. We couldn't see the shadow  of a chance to do anything but just  stand it, but the talking and the sympathy and mamma's sublime ignorance  of -everything did her good, and she  went back without a murmur. She got  a new butler who didn't wear a greasy  coat, and she fixed up.the house, and  when things got too awful she came  over to see me and cried it out. She  didn't fancy meeting peorge, but I  cross my heart and hope to die,' he  doesn't know a thing to this day.  I suppose you think that it was the  Relic's death that saved her, but It  wasn't. It was me. Oh, well, It was I,  then. If I had preached that day, she'd  have taken a scenic-railway speed to  destruction with the first man in sight.  No, she isn't immoral.

If it'had not been In England,  I ddn't think she could have resisted It.  We sailed for, home a day or so after  that, and you know George and I were  married right uway.

The following are from the  latest section of the English translation by Rabbi Rodkinson:  "Rabba b. Hana said again: 'I have  seen an alligator as large as the city  of Hagrunia, which contained sixty  houses. A snake came and swallowed  It, and a large-tailed raven came and  swallowed the snake, and then the  raven sat on a tree!.'"  The translation of another is as follows :  "Rabba said again: 'At one time  when on.board of a_shlpj saw; a flsh  "Into whose g s-"a-reptile-crept-from"  which lt died, the sea throwing lt out  on land. And sixty streets were destroyed by Its fail, .and sixty streets  consumed Its flesh, and sixty other  streets salted the flesh that was left;  and from one eye they filled three hundred measures of oil; and when I returned thither after twelve months, I  saw Its bones being sawed to restore  the streets that were destroyed by it!' "  Were the speaker other than Rabba  b. Hana, who would have believed this?  "He said again: "At one time I was  on board of a ship, whioh was driven  between two fins of a flsh; three days  and three nigbts the fish was swimming  against the wind and we were sailing  with the wind. . . And R. Ashl said  that this was one of the smallest fishes  of the sea which has two fins!' "  From the same inexhaustible source  we bave the following also:  "It once happened that I was going  on a boat,, and saw a fish on which  sand was gathered and grass grown  thereupon. And we thought It was an  island, descended, "baked, and cooked  upon lt. When the back of the flsh  grew hot, lt turned over, and had the  ship not been so near we would have  been drowned."  It Is scarcely to be -wondered at that  at the close of one of these marvelous  rabbinical tales we should find this remark recorded: "R. Papa b. Samuel  said: 'If I had not been there, I should  not have believed it!' "  T is an extraordinary thing that tho  places where people think that  they can Invent Hying machines  are the capltnls ot Europe. Paris,  Vienna, London, Brussels, each takes  Its turn, in paragraphs in tlie morning  papers and illustrated interviews in the  weeklies, at producing flying machine  inventors; but the man who will succeed must be more familiar than  any townsman or laboratory savant  seems to ba with the way in which  Nature's flying machines, the birds,  work. To this the townsman will reply  that everybody knows how birds ily.  They flap their wings; and what we  have to do is to invent a machine  which will flap Its wings like a bird.  Yes; but which bird? In every one  of our undulating Norfolk stubbles  there are two birds, among many, that  you cannot help observing on the  wing. One Is the partridge and the  other the gull. Let us take the gull  flrst. It i3 a bird with a very light  body In proportion to its expanse ol  wing; and when It wishes to rise from  tho ground lt raises its wings aloft,  back to back, and then with one quick  stroke���������whiff!���������waft3 itself aloft.  Three or four more similar strokes  follow, each one visibly raising the bird  higher in the air, and then it sails off.  Now it is "coasting" down an inclined  plane; now its widespread wings catch  the wind like a sail and it curves upwards; then It wheels and "coasts"  again, and at the turn one vigorous  flap of its wings shoots it up into the  wind again. Another sail, another  "coast," another flap, and so the gull  could go on through the livelong afternoon. The albatross, spreading as  much wing-sail as Shamrock II., so  very nearly equalizes its sailing  power with Its coasting momentum  that it remains ln the air alongside a  steamer for, perhaps, half an hour together, without occasion for a flap of  the wing. This Is the very highest  development of ono kind of Nature's  flying machines.  -  Now let us look at the partridge.  This Is a heavy, substantial bird, with  great running power, necessitating a  muscular development essentially different from the gull's. The object of  the partridge's flight is not to loaf  about in the air, always ready to der  scend at any inclined plane that the  chance of snatching food from thc  restless waves may offer, but to put as  large a distance as* possible ln the  shortest space of time between itself  and the danger which compelled it to  take wing. With the partridge flying'  is, in fact, merely an urgent Improvement upon terrestrial locomotion,  whereas with the gull It Is the highest  development of the art of remaining  in the air at the poise most suitable for  descending like an arrow in any desired  direction.  From this contrast it is evident that  the model which human inventors of  flying machines should set before themselves is that of the partridge and not  of the gull. "We need aerial locomotion  as an improvement upon our existing  means of terrestrial progress. Our flying machine must De *���������*��������� weight-carrier  because it has to bear up a terrestrial  meohanism���������i.e., a man; and the partridge gives us a very good idea of the  means whereby this can be achieved.  In common with all ground-birds���������  and if man is destined to be a bird  at all it is as a ground-bird that I12  will havo to commence his aerial evolutions���������the partridge goes off-whirring  like clockwork.- This .is because enormous power, comparatively speaking, is  needed to raise so heavy a bird from  the ground. Cut.' when it has once  reached an altitude of, say, ten feet, It  goes on at a tremendous pace, gilding  for twenty yards, then whirring violently again for ten, gliding Tor twenty,  and so on. Thus the partridge can,  taking into consideration all kinds of  wind and weather, travel between two  fixed points faster than a gull, provided that the point .of departure Is  higher than that of destination. This ;  is not generally understood; and it is  common to talk of the amazing power  of flight of such long-winged birds as  gulls and swifts, although their "power" of flight Is small compared with  that of partridge or pheasant.  Shortly after Walt Whliana-n's  "Leaves of Grass" mnde its appearance, J, T. Trowbridge was walking  with Lowell In Cambridge, when the  latter pointed out a doorway sign,  "Groceries," with the letters set zigzag, to produce a bizarre effect.

A Philadelphia paper declares that  Archbishop Ryan was recently about  to take a train for Baltimore at the  Broad Street Station, when a young  man accosted him, saying: "Your face  Is familiar, where in hell have I seen  you?" "I really don't know," replied  the archbishop, blandly; "what part of  hell do you come from?"  Many years ago, whon Senator Ingalls was In the Senate, oleomargarine  was a bone of contention. The debato  led Ingalls to utter one of those epigrammatic sentences which made him  famous. "I have never, to my knowledge, tasted oleomargarine," said Ingalls, "but I have stood in the presence  of genuine butter with awe for its  strength and reverence for its antiquity."  A lady carrying on mission work in  the slums was teaching a little colored  girl to spell. She used a pictorial  primer, and over each word was its accompanying picture. Polly glibly  spelled "o-x, ov," and "b-o-x, box," etc.  But the teacher thought that she was  making "right rapid progress." So she  put her hand over the picture, and  said, "Polly, what does 'o-x' spell?"  "Ox," answered Polly, nimbly. "How  do you know that lt spells 'ox,' Polly?"  "Seed bis tall," replied the apt Polly.  A very popular Oxford dean, crossing  the quadrangle of Christ's College one  day, was met by a number of undergraduates who passed him without  "capping." The reverend gentleman  felt' annoyed. "Do you know who I  aim?" he asked. "No, sir." "Then how  long have you been at the college?"  "Eight days, sir." "Indeed!" replied the  dean, sarcastically. "Well, in that  oase, you stand excused. I know that  puppies do not open their eyes until the  ninth day." And then he resumed his  walk.  While he was in England, Mark  Twain says his head was once taxed as  gas works. He wrote Queen Victoria  a friendly letter of protest, saying: "I  don't know you, but I've met your son.  He was at the head of a procession in  the Strand, and I was en a 'bus." Years  afterward he .met the Prince of Wales,  now King Edward VII., at Homberg.  They had a long walk and talk together. When bidding him" good-by, the  Prince said: "I am glad to have met  you again." This remark troubled  Twain, who feared that he had been  mistaken for someone else. He communicated this suspicion to the Prince,  who replied: "Why, don't you remember when you' met me-In .the Strand  and I was at the head ot a procession,  and you were on a 'bus?"  Slason Thompson says that the late  Eugene Field was fond of relating the  following story of James Whitcomb  Riley: "To-beguile, the tedlousness of  the return voyage from Europe, it was  proposed to give a concert in the saloon of the ship���������an entertainment to  which all capable of amusing their fellow-voyagers should contribute. Mr.  Riley was asked to recite some of his  original poems, and, of course, he  cheerfully agreed to do so. Among th*.  number present at this mid-ocean entertainment, over which the.Rev. Myron Reed presided, were two Scotchmen, very worthy gentlemen, en route  from the land o' cakes to the land of  biscuits, upon a tour of investigation.  These twain shared the enthusiasm  with which the auditors,applauded Mr.  Riley's charming recitations. They  marveled that so versatile a genius  could bave lived in a land reputed for  uncouthness and savagery. "Is it no  wonderfu', Donal," remarked one of  these Scots, "that a tradesman suld be  sic a bonnie poet?" "And is he Indeed  a tradesman?" asked the one. "Indeed  he is," answered the other; "did ye no  hear the dominie intryjuce him as the  hoosier poet?

Professor Harry Thurston Peck, editor  of the "Bookman," has written a delightful story for children. It is entitled  "The Adventures of Mabel." A few  days ago a woman entered one of the  Chicago stores to buy'a book for her  little girl, says the "Record-Herald."  "How old is she?" the clerk asked.  "Five."  "Here is a nice tale for a child of  that age," the clerk said, handing out  Professor Peck's story about Mabel.  The woman took the book, looked at  the title page, and then handed It back,  eaying:  "Mercy! I don't want that ln my  house. I've read some of that stuff he  wrote about that bad boy, and that's  enough for me."  A,New Vocabulary."

Instead  of delving into the dusty dimness ot  antiquity for Saxon and Sanskrit roots,  and making it necessary, for one to  master ten languages to learn one, why  do they not go Into bhe nursery with  .an open mind and a notebook and  'compile a new mother-tongue that will  catch everybody?"

And he called to a fellow-workman:  "Who is that old gent up there?" It  was St. Francis d'Assisl. The painful  feeling was for a while dispelled. This  was but a figure after all, an nrticle of  trade. And so also, when one hears  fhe clerks calling through the telephones: "When is that St. Maurice  coming down?" "Five St. Anthonys,  with their pigs, wanted at once." And  so on. There is not a vestige of Irreverence in these remarks, but, as I say,  they are not without a most welcome  suggestion of humor.  For, indeed, the terrible realism of  many of. these . statues must Impress  even the most Indifferent. I could not  refrain from asking tho maker of  saints why he allowed his artists to  carry the horrible to such extremes.  Here was a St. Jean de Dieu succoring  a leper, on whose body the modeller  had not omitted one of the horrid  signs of that most foul of maladies.  Here was a writhing St. Sebastian  streaming with blood. Here a chained  woman ln the flames of purgatory extended her anguished hands.  0"We export very largely to South  America," said Monsieur Pacheu, "and  It Is necessary that, to Impress the Imaginations of thc people there���������who are  indifferent, as a rule, to suffering���������we  should strike hard.

Smith of Rutgers College says  that not only will the insects travel  long -distances from their breeding-  place, but on favorable evenings large  swarms rise and are carried during tho  might by winds. The direction in which  they go is often,seaward. Swarms have  been met fifteen miles from the shore,  and they are common five miles from  shore. Migration of mosquitoes with  the aid of the winds Professor Smith  regards as' of much Importance, and  as rendering the control of the mosquito nuisa ice much more difficult than  has been supposed.  Miss Florence K.

She testified that he  had given her black eyes, and stabbed  her with an assegai, wihen the judge,  Sir Francis Jeune, broke in with:  "That was.what you expected ln marrying a savage, was it not?" The judge  reserved judgment, as he ' doubted  whether it could be shown that Loben-  gula's domicile was in' England. He  said, too, that ho only behaved like a  savage, and that the petitioner had insisted on marrying him, and now saw  the result of it.  The old proverb about honor among  thieves has had a staggering blow in  St. Louis. The thieves were certain  members of the city council and a  number of street railway men, and it  was because neither side had any confidence in the bonor of the other that  a remarkable case of bribery was most  amusingly disclosed. The railway men  desired certain franchises, and put up  one hundred and thirty-five thousand  dollars as a corruption fund. They  were afraid, bowever, to pay it to the  councilmen until the council had  voted as they wished. The corrupt councilmen, on their part,  would not vote until they had the  money. By a compromise, therefore,  the fund was placed in a safety-deposit box which had two keys, one of  which was held by" each party. Neither could open the box without the cooperation of the other. The councilmen  voted as they had agreed, and it was  through tbe quarrel over their attempt  to get the funds that the whole matter  became public. ,  ������  bars  The Lion of ihe Place.

The story Is often  told of the dinner-party given by Sir  Edwin Landseer, at which' the guests  were startled by the entry of a stolid  butler, who enquired respectfully, In a  perfectly matter-of-fact tone:  "Beg parden, but did you order a lion,  sir? There's one down-stairs, just  come, sir."  There was, Indeed, but it _was.safely  dead, and the body had been sent  around from the Zoo as a complimentary offering from the authorities to  Sir Edwin.  It remained for a woman artist, Rosa  Bonheur, to own her own lions, make  friends with them, and caress, and.  handle them with absolute fearlessness  and Impunity. Indeed, at one time she  accorded her great pets the freedom of.  her house and garden at By exactly  as if they had been dogs; but this liberty she was later obliged to curtail  out of deference to other people's  nerves, although the lions never abused  it or manifested the least ferocity.  It was certainly hard for the casual  Waller to arrive expectantly at the gates  of the chateau and behold, as soon as  the latch clicked, a huge yellow lion  rear Itself upon the terrace, stretching in a sleepy and amiable yawn a*  pair of jaws that could easily bite a  man's head off.

XT7���������T RITING from Rossland, B.  reference to a recent  ph ln '.'Saturday  on the career of  the late "Father Pat," the  Row Charles W. Hedley says that the  main point of his remarkable ministry  was not eccentricity, but a quite unique  seir-sacrlflce ln the service of any who  needed him. ."Unconventional he certainly, was to a degree which might indeed, ass you suggest, shock some  ���������urnit-laced people In Toronto, but In  an age of worldllness and self-seeking  lie sought neither the wrorld nor self,  but gave freely und utterly his time,  .:omfort, strength, means, even at times  the clothes off his back, to those In  need. The best proof of the man is to  be found ln the warm regard with  which his memory is treasured over the  wide area'in which he labored as a  pioneer missionary. He did adapt himself as few could have done to the tone  of the men among whom chiefly hia  work lay; but while seemingly Indifferent to conventional details, he* stood  for' the main elements of religion ���������  faith in God the Father, the redemption, and the practical brotherhood of man���������and he lived out his  creed. The vices which Christ most  sweeplngly condemned were as far as  possible removed from his character,  while on the other hand the pre-eminently Christian virtues weile his to a  remarkable degree. It Is due to no  mere eccentricity on his part that a  memorial church is to be erected in  Rossland, and that immediately on  receipt of the news of bis death a spontaneous movement was made to erect  a public memorial, a movement Which  has been widely supported by hundreds  or contributors of all classes and  creeds."

Kennedy shot  unci killed one Archer near Golden in  1SSS. The story of lhe crime will be  remembered by many Kamlonpians  who heard tbe trial. Kennedy, it  seems, married, and with his wife he  went to Golden antl started ranching  in the vicinity of the town.' Archer  begun to visit the house when Kennedy was working on his ranch, and  Kennedy, who was insanely jealous,  when he believed lhat his wile was  unfaithful, and that Archer was the  man in the wise, layin wait for Archer,  and shot him. Supt. Hussey worked  on the case and secured much of the  evidence, as a result of which Ken n������dy  was sentenced to life imprisonment at  Kamloops. When Kennedy was  sentenced he jumped up in lhe clock  and began curbing the police and  authorities, nnd theie was quite a  scene in the court'.
