The waiting brethren, with the v.uie.l  colors, the True  Blues in their simple  hutchnsle uniforms, the moving c-iovul  and   music of   the band presented an  inspiring picture.  The di lie rent lodges  then   lined   up   and   inarched   lo llu*  Opera House where  Llie  brclhten dispersed for dinner.      Tlie ot dec of   the  ptocession was as follows :   s .

The   Hags     ot'     Llu*  Golden and Stlinon Ann  Lodges gave  brightness as tliey   gaily filiated to the  breeze, while   the   new and handsome  banner    of    the    Kainloops     Lod^e  attracted coissideiable notice along the  route of march.     Another "noticeable  feature was the number of young men  who compose all the lodges.    It Lolls of  the health" and .vigor of   lhe   Orange  insliltitioni     The .number of   men in  line  was ra slight   indication .of   how  thoroughly the Orange tree has taken  root in lhe soil .of  Urili-h   Columbia.  It   is, a   force   to .be   reckoned wilh.  Whet) it i.s remembered  llial 2o00 men  were   in   line   at   Nanaimo. with   th'e  successful   demonstrations  _al Mission  Junction and "Nelson, the strength of  the   Orange   order and its growing influence in this province can be ru-.tliv.ed.  When   it   is   also'   remembered   thai  Orangeism   means    good ��������� citizenship,  order and equal lights  To nil, ils value  to the country can be estimated.  At 1:80 p. in. the members of the  different lodges wilh visiting friends  and" citizens assembled in the Opera  House to listen to ������������������-  THE SPKECniiS.  On the platform were Masters of thr  different lodges, the .Junior Provincial  D. G. M.' Bro. Adair, Deputy I'rovin.  cial Grand Chaplain Rev. W. C. Culder  and Rev. O. Lad ner. .

The hrelhren in answer  rose to their feet and gave three rousing cheers und a li__,er.  The Deputy Grand Chaplain was  then called .upon to add ies*: the  gathering. Jlr. Calder told cf the  remark made to him a few days liefore  of a man (probably one of theordet)  who had made the statement that there  were 305 days in the year, then he  hesitated a moment as if in thought  and added���������No. there is but one day in  the year and that, day is thel2lhof  July.   (Laughter.)     It   was  a day in  which wc should lie glad, for it* meant  to us  our  civil   and   religions  liberty  which   wu   all   hold  so dear.      If   we  will-.'onsider the   year KISS And three  years pi receding we  will realize what  reason   our   forefathers   had   to   feel  glad over the day.

West frequently took  a plunge in the lake before retiring  and on this occasion he took a boat  out about half past ten at night and  Lhat was the last, seen of hiin. Monday  morning tlie boat was picked up by  thc sawmill tug about 200 yards  from the opposite shore. In the boat  weie West's clothes and his watch  and ring which he had carefully laid  on the edge of the seat, lt is supposed  that wliile in the water a gust of wind  look Lhe boat beyond his reach and  that he took cramps and drowned.  The lake has been systematically  dragged, but so far without success,  .Aidit is doubtful if the body will ever  be recovered,  AVest was a successful assayer and  had offices in Sandon and New Denver.

'  A  Building for The Ages, t  TO illustrate tne slow and painful  evolution    of    social progress,  Olive    Sihreiner,   In   a  recent  article, uses the figure of ca-  ihedral-bu'.hling.    She says'.  "He who in-clay looks at some great  ���������Gothic cathedral in its final form seems  to      be     looking     at     that     -which  anight    ha\x*    been    tho    dream     of  some    single   **oul   of    genius,    who,  -waking   in   tho   morning,   found   the  dream   a   reality.     But   in   truth"  its  origin was far otherwise.   Ages elapsed  from the lime the first rough stone was  laid as a foundation till the last spire  and  pinnacle    were    shaped,  and    the  hand  which  laid  the foundation-stone  ���������was never the same as that-which, set  the last stone upon the coping. Generations  succeeded one another,  laboring  at  gargoyle, rr*se--v\ indow   and   shaft,  ar.d died, leaving the work to others;  the  first ina**l"r-bui*der who drew up  the   first   rou.-ii  outline   passed   away  and  was sv.cce_d"d by others, and the  details of lhe wi-rk as completed bore  "but faint reson.'o'.anee to tho work as he  devised it; no man fully understood all  that others  had  done  or were  doing,  but each labcicd m his place, and the  work as completed had unity;  it expressed not thc de.'lre and necessity, of  ���������one mind, but nf the unknown human  spirit.

"The Book Booster."  "VACANT niche in contemporary  periodical literature, says the  "Literary Digest," is filled by the  "Book Booster," which is edited by  "Mr. Crltlcus Flub-Dubbe," nnd published by "Josh, Gosh & Co.," in Evans-  ton, 111. Its purpose, as It is careful to  inform the reader on Its first page, is  to "boost, books���������our own and others,"  with the distinction that "the books  published -by Josh, Gosh & Co. will be  boosted -without reference to the number of pounds sold, whilo the publications of other hou������as will he boosted  only when they have passed the dead  Mne, which Is fifty thousand pounds."  Tho book boosted in this particular  Issue is "Faggots oB Empire," by Miss*  Bertha Bosh. "Miss Bosh," we aro told  from the "Editor's Rocking Chair," "Is  only fifteen years old, but is extremely  bright for Tier age. She Is a Chicago  girl, and has never traveled farther  than Oconomowoc. which makes her  literary feat -all the more remarkable. ���������  For 'Faggots of Empire' is a story of  the reign of Charlemagne, and the author betrays a singular acquaintance  with the .local color of those times." Indeed, iier narrative "contains more  'facts than the histories."   Moreover:  "Tlie cloth used in .binding the first  edition would, if stretched end to end,  reach from Chicago to Evanston.  Placed side 'by side the pages would  reach from Chicago to Minneapolis.  Smeared thinly, the Ink used would  cover four townships. Ten -million cockroaches could subsist for six months on  the binder's paste employed. Set up  side by side, the individual .letters in  the text" would reach from San Francisco to the Hawaiian Islands. And  the hot air .employed ln boosting the  book would float ten thousand balloons."  Another interesting literary an-'  nouncement is made to the effect that  "Josh, Gosh & Co. have ibeen appointed  "Western selling agents for the forthcoming book of Mr. Ernost Thompson-  Seton (formerly Seton - Thompson),  Which is to he titled 'Cheap Thompsons  I Have Known.' " The "Book Booster"  is replete with touching poems and  thrilling serials, and "The Stovepipe of  Navarre," a blood-curdling; "Romance  of Sword and Cloak," by Miss Poota  Pants, quite puts in the shade all current literary efforts along the same  line.  ������.Vhat Did the Fakir Do?  w  Talking Dogs.  ?~* OOD evidence of the power of communication among 'our speechless friends is given in the following very human story told by a  writer in the Boston "Herald:"  "The fact that dogs have a way of  communicating news to one another  was demonstrated to mo ln a very singular and amusing fashion about tour  years ago. lt was in Soutli Georgia,  where ns yet little provision is made  for tho comfort of domestic animals.  One of these bitter nights, such as a  cold wave often brings, I heard at our  front door tho unmistakable sounds o������  -scratching and whining, and found  upon opening two of my little neighborhood friends, a pug and a llttlo terrier, asking admission. In the face of  the cruel cold lt wus granted them, and  they were made welcome to share the  comfortable quarters of my own two  doga. In the morning they took their  departure; but how great was my astonishment to see them return the following cold evening, this time accompanied by a large Irish setter, who  likewise wagged admission to the warm  quarters of whloh he seemed to have  knowledge. If there were any doubts  as to whether these hospitable night  lodgings were discussed among the  shelterless dogs of the neighborhood,  the doubts were removed on the third  night, when my three tramps returned,  their number still further increased by  another pug and an old pointer. The  mute but eloquent language of their  wagging tails, the humble appeal in  their sincere eyes were at once amus-*  ing and pathetic. With my own two  pets and these five tramps I -had now  seven dogs stretched out comfortably  before my dining-room grate; but their  irreproachable behavior and their many  ingratiating ways had insured for them  a welcome at our house as long as the  cold wave lasted, which was nearly a  week.

Careful attention to  their 'tricks has not discovered their secret with  any certainty, but Captain James Parker, the English traveler, who has just  returned from a tour of India, gives it  as his belief that hypnotism is the  means by which they accomplish thoir  most startling illusions. One incident  which he describes seems to beaT out  his view.  The trick which is acknowledged to  be the greatest of these Hindu mystic  performances, says Captain Parker,  and the -one that has been described  by trustworthy persons too often to be  doubted, is 'the one In w.hichtlie fakir  throws a ball of twine into the air  above him, until it disappears from  sight. The loose end of. the string he  'holds dn his hand, and after, the boy  assistant has climbed up the siring until lie. too, is out of sight, the fakir  himself follows, with a knife between  his teeth.  The speeloidi-S. surprised when both  boy and man climb out of sight, are  horrified when the boy's severed head,  arms and legs, followed by the trunk,  fall'to the ground, and tlie man slides  down close behind. Their astonishment  is increased when the fakir gathers the  severed members and restores the boy  to life.  "Well, I saw this performance once,  and once 1 didn't see it; and the latter  experience was more wonderful than  the other. I had some London friends  visiting me, and after having left them  for a few-minutes on the veranda ot.  my bungalow, I saw, as I was returning, the same fakir and his assistant,  whom I had seen perform the trick,  standing about forty feet ln front ot  my friends, apparently preparing to  begin a performance. As I was about  a.s~far-behlnd-the_naclves_a_s_my_friends_  were in front of them, and had not  been observed, I stood quietly where I  was.  The man placed a drawn knife between his teeth; took the usual ball of  twine in his right hand, made a motion  as it throwlng.it into the air, a.nd  then stood perfectly quiet. My friends  on the veranda were looking into the  upper air with astonishment on their  faces, which in a minute turned to a.  look of horror as their eyes came back  to the ground. In another minute their  countenances lighted up with pleasure,  and they applauded roundly.  They could not say enough about the  wonderful performance they had seen,  and they were astonished beyond measure when I told them I had been aa  iMnr the faldr as they, and had seen  nothing of what had so wonderfully  Impressed them.  If that was not hypnotism, what was  It?  Are You an Appendicitter?  THE question that men in Kalamazoo ask each other is not, "Are  you a Buffalo?" tout, "Are you an  Appendicitter?"    The  interrogatory is  intended   to  elicit  information    as  to  whether    the person    addressed  is  a  member in good standing of the Kalamazoo "Appendicitis Club."    A person  who. has had his vermiform appendix  removed, of course, is not presumed to  be eligible to membership in this club.  As  medical and  surgical   science  has  never been able to discover any use for  the vermiform appendix in man's anatomy, it is popularly understood that  it was placed there principally for the  benefit of the doctors. .Many a poor but  deserving    young  physician  gets    his  start In practice by removing a man's  vermiform appendix, and then removing a good portion of the man's estate  afterward. Tlie appendicitters in Kalamazoo, 'however, have played a sharp  turn on  the mercenary  doctors.    Too  many of them wanted to get rich out  of this "fifth wheel of man's anatomy."  They .have worked a corner in. the appendicitis crop.   Seven hundred persons  have  formed an  organization   to  protect their collective vermiform appendices  from   the  knives   of   mercenary  surgeons, who desire to carve their way  to fame and fortune in one short hotrr.  The doctor -who breaks into this vermiform combine���������this community of intestinal  interests���������will   have  to accept  the tariff of the association.' There will  be no more fancy fees for cutting out  the vermiform appendix in Kalamazoo.  Tho poor as well as the rich can have  appendicitis in the famous celery town.  Doctors and nurses will be paid reasonable  fees  from  the  funds of the  club.  The Kalamazoo idea Is a good one, and  likely to spread. ^  Why the Czar Wears a Beard."

Anecdotal.  ���������In an after-dinner speech at the London Savage Club recently on the purity  of the English tongue, Winston Churchill remarked: "I have written fivo  books, tho same number as Moses���������but  I will not press the comparison."  Charles II. once granted an audience  to the courtly Quaker, William Penn,  who, as was his custom, entered the  royal presence with his hat on. The humorous sovereign quietly laid aside his  own, which occasioned Penn's enquiry:  "Friend Charles, why dost thou remove  thy hat?" "It is the custom," he replied, "ln this place for one person only  to remain covered."  Eben Jones, the crabbed millionaire  lumberman of Minnesota, hired all his  mill-hands himself. One day a Swede  applied to the irritable old man, and  secured a place on the saws. As he  waa leaving he said: "Mester Yones, in  dees yob you gcef me doaller and hallef  a day. Besides dat, do you eat me or  do I eat myselef?" "Oh, eat yourself!"  replied the old man. "I have dyspepsia."  Phil May, the noted English cartoonist, went Into an oyster saloon in the  East End of London one day and ordered a dozen natives, when another  man entered and gave a similar order,  enquiring anxiously of the proprietor it  the oysters were fresh. "Fresh!" echoed  the bivalve merchant. "Fresh! A\1hy"  ���������Indicating Mr. 'May with a wave of  his hand���������"the flrst oyster that gentleman took up bit his lip!"  An Irishman who was charged with  stealing a -watch from a fellow-citizen,  stoutly denied the impeachment in  court, and brought a counter accusation against his accuser for assault and  'battery committed -with a frying-pan.  "Why did you allow the prosecutor,  who is a smaller man than yourself, to  assault you without resistance?" asked  the Judge; "had you nothing in your  hand to defend you self iwith?" "Be-  dad, your honor," said Pat, "I had his  watch, but what was that against a  frying-pan?"  The "Scotsman" tells of a Dublin  man who insisted that a Scotch friend  should stay at his house instead of a  hotel, andkept him there for a month,  playing the host in detail, even to  treating him to all places of amusement, payingall the cab fares and the  rest. When-the visitor was returning  to Dunedin, the Irishman saw him  down to the steamer, and they went together to have a last cigar. "Now.  look here," said the man from Dunedin,  "I'll hae nae mair o' this. Here ye've  been keepln' me .at your hoose for a  month, an* payin' for a' the amusements and cabs and so on���������I tell you  I'll stan" nae mair o' it! We'll just hae  a toss for this one!"  One of the eccentricities of that most  penurious of pedagogues, Dr. Barrett,  was that he hardly ever appeared outside the walls of Trinity College, conducting his modest menage there with  the help of a decrepit old housekeeper,  who attended to'..all his wants, even to  daily fetching from a nearby dairy the  half-pennyworth of milk needed in the  establishment. When one frosty morning, Mary, going on this errand, slipped  and broke her leg, the worthy doctor  for the first time in years left the! college to pay her a visit in the hospital.  On reaching her cot, it is related that  his sympathetic greeting was: "Hello,  Mary; so you 'brok-4 your leg; I suppose  you broke the jug, too. but where is the  half-penny?"  ���������Mr. Justice Mathow ot England Is a  man of such mild and kindly exterior,  with such gentle voice and manner,  that almost invariably he gives the impression of being a simple country gentleman rather than a profound lawyer.  This was evidently the idea of a professional seller of painted birds, who  some years ago met him in tho neighborhood of the law courts, and. exhibiting one of his birds, asked him if he  could tell to what species it belonged.  The Judge stopped, examined the bird  with great care, pretended to admire  the gaudy plumage, examined it again,  and then remarked: "I do not think I  have ever seen a bird exactly like this,  but, judging from the old proverb that  'Birds of a feather flock together," I  should say lt was a Jailbird."  The Cliortcoi-r/.n^'J rssr������5SfCir.:.  W  HEN I  was  a schoolgirl,  with  many definite  opinions,  I  remember hav.lng a talk with a  man of thirty, who happened  to  advance  a  theory���������I  forget about  what���������which aroused in me ardent dissent.    I  eagerly  presented   my   view,  which was the exact reverse of his, and  paused for him to defend himself.   He  gave me a friendly look;   then leaned  back .and  gazed  out  of  the   window,  with the remark, "Well, there's something in that, too."  I felt as if the bottom had dropped  out of the room. For, I thought, If one  really hold an opinion, how can he say  there Is "something In" the contrary'  view? But since then I have not only  had many such experiences; 1 have myself become an offender. And I wonder It  It Is altogether a gain. It may be  sheer contrariness, but I do get a little  tired, sometimes, of broad-mindedness  and tolerance, and long for good, big*  oted narrowness that can be counted  on. I should really like to be told: "No,  you're totally wrong; what you have  just said is false absolutely. The facts  of the case are these, and lt you don't  believe lt, so much the worse for you."  How I should enjoy that! But I have  not had the experience since my brothers grew up. Occasionally, ln desperation, I have assumed the part myself,  and taken my stand on positive assertion of a single half truth; but it does  no good. I simply live over that early  experience; again I am told, "There's  something in that, too," and lt gives  me the feeling, to quote a figure used  by a. friend in another connection, of  having come up against a soft curtain  where I expected a wall.  "A plain categorical proposition,"  says Mr. Morley, "is becoming less and  less credible'to average minds. Or at  least the slovenly willingness to hold  two directly contradictory propositions  at one and the same time is becoming  more and more common." I do not  think it is quite this. Men surely used  to hold two directly contradictory  proposltlons at one and the same  time with the. utmost ease. The  point is that they did not know  they were " contradictory, whereas  we do: and still we hold them  ���������or rather, entertain tlhem, as one  would interesting guests. Our attitude  toward every opinion we meet might  be expressed thus: "Well, there's something in that, too. Come right ln!"  And the new opinion comes in, and  draws a chair up to the hospitable flre,  and finds a friendly circle of other  opinions there; they shake hands all  round, and each tells the others what  good fellows they are.  This is amiable, but, in honesty, I  don't like it. ' It is like the congress of.  religions, which I have never been able  to understand,' save on the assumption  that each secretly hopes to convert the  others by taking! them oft Lheir guard,  or that no one is in earnest about his  religion except as regards Its common  moral ibasis. The old attitude used tn  be, "You think differently trom mc:  therefore you're wrong, therefore you're  bad, therefore I'll ki.i you." One by  one these clauses have been dropped,  beginning with the last one; thus reversing the system of "the House that  Jack Built." First we stopped .killing  the other man, then we stopped thinking he was iDad, and now we have near-  iy stopped thinking he is wrong. May  thia ^ot be carried too-far?���������From thn  "Csnuibu tors' Club."  Alligator Stories.

And while there is great -excitement in  playing a IDO-pound tarpon, ln netting  a big catch of .mullet, or in bringing  down am Imperial eagle, the sportsman  ���������who goes after alligators feels he is  really emulating the hunter who returns from tho jungle laden with tiger  skins and elephant tusks, and this  thrill can be experienced- by anyone  who flnda his way to Tampa Bay,  where alligators of ������cvon, .nine and  cloven feet are continually bagged.  The .belief was long current that the  only vulnerable spot lit an alligator was  the eye. and that a rifle ball would  glance from the skin ot this .tropical  armed cruiser, tout a modern ritie ball  will penetrate his hide anywhere,  though it Is not always Immediately  fatal. Apropos of Florida .alligators,  here is an amusing record from one  of the game books at Tampa Bay.  Someone wrote: "Kiilled* the largest alligator seen this year. Found In his  stomach a book, a piece of plnewobd,  a fisherman's float, and some small  flsh!"  Right undor this another sportsman  wrote: "Killed a much, bigger alligator.

"These novels used to circulate in a neighborhood till they had  been read by every boy and had -fallen  to pieces through handling. They fired  the ambition or the youngsters, set  them to practising shooting and riding, and sent many of them to the West  in search ot advuniures.

O and hitch up the ostrich," is  not at all an absurd command on an ostrich farm.  There the'se great birds are often harnessed lo a carriage, and make fairly  good substitutes for horses. Although  they cannot draw a heavy load, their  speed is a recommendation.  At Jacksonville, Florida, there is a  bird named Oliver W. that can run a  mile in two minutes and twenty-two  seconds. His owners claim that he is  more satisfactory than a horse because  he eats less,, never ohies at anything,!  never runs away, and goes steadily at  a good pace without laziness or fatigue.  "Phis particular ostrich appears to  like his work. * When the little carriage  is brought out he comes l-unning toward it at full speed, with both wings  spread out, ready_ to .have" the harness  put on. ~ " ~  On one occasion a cyclist' tried to  pass Oliver W. on a long, smooth  stretch of road. He came up behind  the carriage, thinking to get ahead and  escape the dust. Oliver W. thought  differently. He threw his head high in  the air, gave a flap with his wings, and  went forward with a speed that astonished the cyclist. Putting forth more  effort, the latter made another attempt  to pass the ostrich, but the faster the  pedals of the bicycle moved the faster  sped the long legs nf the bird.  It so happened lhat the cyclist had a^  record as a fast rider, and to be distanced by an ostrich was not to his  liking.' For two miles he tried to pass  his feathered rival, but' was then  ibllged to give up the race, defeated.  Some fast horses have tried ^conclusions with Oliver W��������� who seems to  like nothing better than testing their  sf������.*ed, starting slowly| to make them  think It en By to distance him, and then  gradually Increasing his pace.  Lee Low's Misapprehension.-  I_.ee Low Wung, secretary of the Chinese consulate in New York, In th������  course of a conversation recently, spoke  of some of tho ideas prevalent in his  country, as ifollows:  "ln China it is generally supposed  that a man's brains arc located in his  stomach, and the fatter he is thc more  his wisdom is deemed assured. Of  course, there nre many people in China  who know that a man's brains are ln  his head, bui tliey cheerfully assist in  maintaining the jolly Action of corpulent greatness.  "I began to learn English, ln China  when I was 15 years old, under the Instruction of Dr. Malcolm of Shanghai.  I had begun ��������� to study It in secret by  myself a year before, but it was too  much for my unaided efforts.  "The word wind, being used in two  senses, gave me as much trouble as  anything else.

Sir Walter Scott's first client was a  burglar. Hn got the fellow off, but the  man declared that ho hadn't a penny  to give him for- his services. Two bit-s  of useful information he offered, however, and with these the young lawyer  had to be -m:--..)ent. The first was that  i yelping t������*r!*ter Inside tiio house was  i. belter protection against thieves than  ,i big dog outKide; and the second, that  no sort of lock bothered his craft so  much as an old rusty one.  Small compensation as this was, the  flr.Mt brief ot the noted French lawyer,  Monsieur Routier, yielded still less. The  feasant tor whom Monsieur Rouher  won the case asked how much he owed  him.  "Oh, say two francs," said the modest y<>ung advocate.  "Two francs!" exclaimed tho peasant. "That is very high. Won't you  let ine orf with a franc and a half?"  "No," said the counsel; "two francs  or niithlng."  "Well, then." said his client, "I'd  rather pay nothing."  And with a bow he left.

And very gently he laid his hand over  my two, that were clasped tightly together In my lap. Altogether his manner was considerate and reassuring.  But, then, Roger's manner invariably  Was perfect ln every emergency.  "You are so young, such a child  still," he'went on, before I could speak,  and resisting my efforts to draw my  .hands from under his, "that you need  someone to take care of you. I want  to be that one, dear. And she who Is  gone desired lt, as you know. If it were  not for that I would not have spoken  .yet. But she would not have wished  jne to delay.

"I don't expect love at first���������not the  ������ort of love I feel for you," he said.  "Why, you are almost too young to  know what love means. Trust your-  ���������self to me, dear, and trust me to teach  ���������foil its meaning."  I shook my head, and I was beginning  10 grow impatient. "You couldn't," I  said. "I know enough about love, by  instinct, to be sure that you could nev-  tr teach it to me. You might try for a  nundred years, and it would be just the  sam'e at the end as it.is now."  "That's  a  hard   answer,"   he  ejaculated," flushing.    "It's your youth  that  speaks.    Perhaps, after all, I ought to  _ have waited.

"Since  ���������you began this, Roger, we must finish'  it now, and not speak of it again ever���������  ;ver, if we' are to remain friends.'  You've always been very good and very  nice to me, and I've tried to be fond of  you���������not in the way you mean, but  .just as a cousin, because,'I knew that  it was mother's wish. Yet I couldn't  make myself do it. I've never been  romfortable with you, Roger, or happy  in your society. It's better to tell you  ill the truth now, so that you will  suite understand that it couldn't be  iifferent."  He was still on one knee by my side,  chough he had released my hands now,  ind lie was looking straight into my  ���������yes' with a very strange look. .

You said there was business "  which could not wait, and yet this is  \  ill " -  *' ' "This is not all," Roger repeated,  iaking the words out of my mouth. "It  Is only the beginning. You don't understand yet,- but you will by and by, and  you will think very differently of mo  then. Instead of anger there will be, I  am sure, a more kindly emotion ln your  heart.

"I do  not see the appropriateness of the simple."    "  . ���������'   ���������  "I told you tlrat you did not under-,  stand now. But I_won't' keep you In  suspense."  To my relief he rose from his humble  posture, and stood before-me,- looking  down, veiled excitement in his face.  ' "Speaking ���������'of King Cophetua,"' he  ���������went on, "reminds me of a story���������the  atory of a .beggar maid.l- Once." upon a  time there was a man who had been  poor all his life. And there was a girl  who had been rich. Suddenly they  changed places, though she was left ln  ignorance. ' The man loved the girl,  who was very beautiful and so indifferent in her manner to him that he, who  was not used to indifference from other  women, was piqued Into desiring to  win her even more ardently than he  would otherwise.. He had wanted her  when1 he believed himself poor and the  girl rich. But when the change came,  he loved her just as much. And to show  ���������his love, instead of sayfng: 'You have  lost everything. Come to me, who can  jrive lt all back,' he would have concealed the truth, if she would have let  him, for a time at least, until she had  grown accustomed to the Idea that the  best happiness of her life must come  from him. Do you think that he was a  man of honor or a quixotic fool?"  "He might have beer.���������neither one  nor the other," I answered, firmly,  though my heart had begun to beat  very fast. "Perhaps he was only���������posing."  "You are a cynic, my child," Roger  said, calmly. But his beautifully arched  brows drew together in a frown.  "What has your story to do with  ���������me?" I asked.  "Everything, with both you and me."  I looked up quU kly; our eyes met and  -dwelt. A slight shiver ran through my  body. What wns coming now? I felt  as If I was standing on the edge of -a  precipice, knowing that Roger would  push ine over and I should not be able  to resist.  "You are serious?"  "Most serious. This Is what was In  my mind when I asked lt Aunt Ermyn-  trude had spoken at the lant of the circumstances of your birth.   This waa Ip  her mind, perhaps, when she told you It  would make her happy if you could  learn to care "for me."  "Please don't try to break lt gently,  Roger," I said, my lips very dry. "Tell  me 'everything you know���������straight  out."  "I will, lt you can bear lt. You have  been brought'up to believe "that you  were born abroad. That Is not the  case."  "Oh, well, lt is not important."  "My cousin, Sir Vincent Cope, was  not your father."     ���������*,  "What, was ".my mother twice married, then?"  "My Aunt Ermyntrude was not your  mother."  I sprang up with a faint, choking cry.  "It is not true!" I panted.  "It is true, and it can easily be  proved. I am not the only one who  knows it. There are other witnesses in  whose mouths the 'truth shall be established. There. is not a drop of Cope  ���������blood in your veins, poor little desolate  Sheila."  "Desolate, Indeed!" I bitterly.echoed.  "If it be true���������oh, I1 will grant lt true,  If you choose!���������why was I never told  before? Why was I left to hear lt from  you?"  "Why should I not be the one to tell  you, as tenderly as such a hard thing  can be told? Had Aunt Ermyntrude  lived you would have been kept in Ignorance at least until your marriage.  Then lt would have been as your husband thought best. Ah, Sheila, how I  would have protected and shielded you  if you would have lot me! Even yet  it's not too late. Look at me; I'm holding out my arms to you. Don't go away  into the world homeless, penniless.  Stay in this shelter an'd you will not  miss -anything that was ever yours."  "Homeless ��������� penniless!" I echoed,  dazedly.    "I don't understand."  "If Aunt Ermyntrude had left a will,  she would, doubtless, have provided for  you as -a daughter," Roger went on,  slowly. "Had she done so I must have  known It, for I was her lawyer, and  managed, all* business matters for  her, as you are probably aware.-  Once " or - twice, thinking ��������� of some  such difficulty as this, I ventured  to advise her to , make a' will.  But she always evaded me and put it  off. This place was her property. She  was a rich woman, with an Income of  ten or twelve thousand pounds a year;  and had you been her daughter by ties  of blood as well as affection, everything  must have gone to you ln the absence  of u will, as you would have been the  natural heir. No one else could have  claimed an acre or a penny. But as lt  is you are not a relation at all, and  you will get nothing.. Everything goed  by law to the next-of-kin. Aunt Ermyn-  trude's one living relative."  ��������� "Yourself!" I exclaimed.  "Exactly.- Don't.blame me, Sheila. I  did not make the law."  "No, but������������������-"  "But what?" . '  "Nothing," I said, dully.  " I had been on the point of crying out:  "Vou might refuse to accept what the  law gives." But I stopped just in time.  I would have died sooner than ask or  receive favors from Roger Cope. I  never trusted or liked him.' Now, almost numbed as I was by the blow  with which he had struck me, I saw  him as he was���������a'hypocrite, a poseur;  vain, utterly selfish, utterly unscrupulous In gaining his own ends. I had  lost-everything; mother, home, a'nd  means of support, but I would have  nothing from him. I could not yet fully realize what--the revelation of this  morning must mean for me. So far I  only felt the pain of knowing that' the  beautiful woman I.had worshipped and  feared had never belonged to me at all.

But why do you want me now?"  Roger waved his hand towards a  Vreat mirror that went from floor *o  oelllng, on the.wxll of the "Indian boudoir."  "Look at yourself,",.he sold.  Mechanically, hardly knowing what I  did, I looked. Never .before had I been  critical ot myself. But now I gazed  searchlngly at my own face���������the one  fortune that was left me.  I was beaum'ul. Even I co-ild see  that. As I grew older, my hair ml_,ht  change its young gold for autumn  brown; but It was yellow" as ripe wheat  now, 'brown only ln the shadows,  where thc waves cuived inward. Anj  my eyes were big, and dark, and soft.  Suddenly, B felt very sorry for myself,  because I was so pretty, and omy  .eighteen; becausevI seemed to have left  youth and happiness forever behind me,  and there was no one whom I loved or  had a claim upon to put kind arms  round me, and let me cry my heart out  on a sympathetic breast.  . Tears sprang - to my eyes, but I  crushed them back. Roger Cope should  not see me cry.  "I want you because you are. the  Prettiest girl, and some day will be the  most beautiful woman, on earth," cried  "Roger, speak!ng~more warmly and impulsively than I had ever heard him  speak. "I want' you, too, because .you  are hard to'win; and I have always  liked overcoming dlfllculties. Sooner or  later, I warn you. Sheila, I will overcome this one, and you with it. I will!  You might as well yield to the inevitable now."  "It Isn't Inevitable. And I won't  yield," I stoutly maintained. "You  haven't proved any of your statements  yet."  "I will, soon enough; or, rathec 1  can. But if you will picrnlse to marry  tne, sweet, no one need ever know. You  will marry us Miss Sheila Cope of Ar-  rlsh Moll Court; and I will come here  t'o live, as your husband���������"  "You will come" here to live, it may  be, but not as my husband," I cut him  short. "1 shall have gone away before  that."  "Where would you go?" Roger asked  curiously, almost incredulously.  "The world's a big place," I retorted  my voice quivering with the sobs thai  would not quite bo kept back. One  tore its way up from my heart; and  with two great tears running down my  cheeks, I exclaimed: "Oh, if there were  only somebody whom I belonged to!'  Roger took a step forward, and put  out his hand, but I pushed ii from me;  and his blue eyes flashed their resentment. "I believe," he said, quietly, In  tho drawl which had so often stung me  to Impatience, "that there are several  persons with whom you are entitled to  claim kinship, If you choose."  ���������I dashed my tears nwny, and gazed  at him eagerly. "Tell ine���������tell me!" 1  cried. "How was lt that my moth���������  that Lady Cope took me Us her own.  child?"  "She was very unhappy#at the time.  Five years before she had' lost her little son, whom she' and her husband  both adored. He died in most tragic  circumstances, which changed his  mother's whole nature. Sir Vincent  and Aunt Ermyntrude went abroad.  There Sir Vincent died also, and poor  Aunt Ermyntrude came back���������not to  her old home, but to London. She undertook various charitable works, and  It was while she wr.s givlrig up her life  to the Interests of others that she met  your mother."  "My mother!" I echoed, ln a whisper.  For a moment I was powerless to ask  more; but Roger went on, without  waiting for my questions.  "Your mother was also a widow, and  very poor. You were her only child,  but she had been ill, among other misfortunes, and was hardly able to provide for you. Aunt Ermyntrude saw  you���������a pretty little thing a few months  of!age; and, taking a great fancy to  you, in her loneliness, offered to adopt  you as her own. Your mother finally  consented, and as Aunt Ermyntrude  had been living abroad for several  years with her husband, and her presence in London had been known to  none, nobody was particularly surprised when she came home at last with  a baby not quite a year, old.  "I knew the truth from the first, because I had visited Cousin Vincent and  Aunt Brmyntrade abroad, and knew  that they had no child, so I had to be  told. And the vicar, old Mr. Wester-  ley, was told also, but we were both  asked to keep the secret, and we always have."  "You said that some of my people  were still alive," I said, in a strained  voice.     - , .    -     .  -  "Your mother :s living," Roger quietly answered. "I nave been at* some  pains to keep, track of her���������for Aunt  Ermyntrude's sake, of course."  Somehow I did not believe that it had  oeen for anyone's sake but his own, and  for some purpose which I seemed to be  on the point-of discovering.    ...  "I  have  your mother's  present address, if you wish to write her, Sheila," ,  Roger said.   "Shall I give it to you?"  "Yes," I said, "I want the address.  But before writing, I should like to see  Mr. Westerley. You told me.that���������he  knew the secret also."  "He does," Roger answered, gravely.  "And you shall see him. I- understand  what lsln your mind. You believe that  I am deceiving you. Well, it is natural, perhaps���������though it's hard to be mis-  Judged by the woman one loves. In the  mouths'of two witnesses, it" is said, a  truth shall be established; and the  sooner you hear what Mr. Westerley  can add to my statement,*the better I  shall be pleased. Not���������I wouldn't have  you think that for a moment!���������not that  I'm not only too glad to have you stay  here as long as you will, even, if we  are to be nothing to each other."  "I will send a carriage down to Lull,  and ask Mr. Westerley to come out "at  once," I cried; then bit my lip. The  carriages were Roger's. But I let it  pass. Until I was sure.I would grant  myself some privileges, with the benefit of the doubt. . '    "  Roger rang the bell, and then came  hack to me. From his pocket*he took  a sealed envelope. "The address you  wanted," he explained. "I will go and  leave you alone now. I can see that  you would prefer that. After Mr. West-  srley has ben with you, and gone away'  again, you shall have a little time to  think. Then I will come back, and you  shall tell me.what decision you have  reached. ��������� It-may-be^that- you-_will_look_  upon matters with a different eye. Af  all events, remember that while you  have me  you are not friendless."  He-held out his hand, and though I  felt the impulse to refuse lt, I would  not, lest he should think it was because I grudged him the things that  had seemed mine.  .When,the bell was answered a ser-  .rx'.ii -xxa zrnJyjSS.H "3W flij tarriuge I*  ordered might tiOee Sir Roger Cope  back to the Inn before calling for Mr.  Westerley.  The vicar was a kind old man with a  nervous manner, and the air of being  slightly startled when anyone addressed  him. His greatest pleasure was collecting butterflies, a pastime which he Infinitely preferred to the companionship  of human beings. But, because he was  good, I knew that he would come to me  without delay, and I was not disappointed.  I could hardly wait to answer his  questions as to my health and -spirits  when he arrived, but burst at once into  the subject weighing on my heart.  "Mr. Westerley," I asked, abruptly, "Is  It true that���������that Lady Cope adopted  me-when I was a baby���������that I was not  her own child?"  Tha wrinkled old face, with Its long,  narrow oval, and its high forehead  thatched with white hair, flushed deeply, and looked more startled than ever.  "Who���������who told you this?" the vicar  questioned, with an exaggeration of his  usual slight stammer.  "Sir Roger Cope," I answered. "He  said that you, too, knew the story-  only you and he in the world now since  my���������since Lady Cope is dead. I wouldn't believe it until I had seen you. But  now I know���������just from your face, even  before you speak���������that It's true."  "My poor child! It Is indeed true.  But I had hoped���������I knew that Lady  Cope had .not wished you ever to be  told that you were not her daughter by.  birth, as you were in heart."  We had both been standing up. In  my Impatience I had not given him  the chance of sitting down; but now I  sank upon a sofa and covered my face  with my hands. The vicar sat beside  me. and laid his hand on my bead.  "Don't take It so hardly, my dear,"  he said. "She loved you and you loved  ter. ���������  That  Is  the, principal  thing.    I  don't know why it was necessary for  you to be told, though Sir Roger, no  doubt, did what he thought was his  duty. But at all events, no one else  need know. Nothing need lie changed."  "Everything is ."changed!" I exclaimed. "Because* everything that 3  thought was mine is Roger Cope's."  Mr. Westerley sprang to his foot with  an ejaculation of amazement or incredulity. "No!" he said. "No; that cannot be. Lady Cope was too just, too  loving a woman, strange as were some  of her ideas.    She brought you up to  consider yourself an heiress "  "I'm a beggar," I broke in. "She left  no will, so Roger says. Ho was her solicitor, and knew all her business. He  told me that ho had often advised hei  to make one, but she put It off. Yet ll  'sn't that I care for. I���������I've had elirh-  teen happy years. I oughtn't to asl;  Tor more. If she hail lived and loved  me I wouldn't have minded being poor  and leaving dear old Arrlsh Mell "  "Surely you���������won't be called upon tc  leave?" stammered the vicar.  . For an instant 1' was tempted to tell  him the story of Roger's offer and my  refusal of it. But It seemed a dishonorable thing for a girl to do; and Instead, I merely explained that, as everything now apparently belonged to  Roger, who was, as far as known, Lady  Cope's only surviving relative, I preferred not to be indebted to him.  "There are things 1 can do to earn  my own living," I went on. "I speak  French very well; I sing and play; 1  can paint a little; and, thanks to poor  Miss Fitch, my governess, who was  with me for so many years, I have a  good all-round education. I ought to  find something to do."  "If only I were not a miserable bachelor, my child, you'd not be at a loss,  for a home," said the kind old man.  "Even as it Is, I wonder if something  couldn't be arranged. It's���������it's un-'  bearable to think of you alone In the  world. But, thank goodness, lt hasn't  come to that yet. Sir Roger Cope Is  human. I have always, until now, supposed him a singularly high-minded  young man. He will tell you to look  upon this house as yours since he can't  possibly want it "  "I think he does want it," I cut him  short. "And anyway, it would never  be home to me again���������not for a day. It  seems, too, that I'm not alone in the  world. Roger says my mother is alive  and he knows where I can find! her. I  shall go to her, (Mr. Westerley."  The vicar's face changed. "I���������er���������  *-eally, my child," he-faltered, "I should  ���������should do nothing .rash If I were you.  Better think it over;' talk with Sir Roger. Or let me talk with him If you  prefer.    Yes,   that  is  better.    I'll see  him, and "  "Thank you, dear Mr. Westerley.  He's at the inn, at Lull," I said.   .  A sudden* resolution had come to me.  There was no .use in arguing with this  dear old man, who would never either  see things as I did, nor make me. see  them with his eyes.- I would let him  ?o now that he had confirmed Roger's  statement. And���������when . I was alone I  would* make up,, my' mind.   ,  "Shall I go and find Sir Roger now?"  ie,suggested, with subdued eagerness.  I saw, or thought I_saw, that he knew  something concr-   .ing which he feared .  questions���������something which he did not  ivlsh to tell.  "Yes. It is kind of you," I replied.  "You have told n-.e that the thing is  true, and now���������it will be better for me  lobe alone and think It all over. But  is there another mystery, another secret  about my real, mother? Why would lt  oe 'rash' to go.to her?','  * "Oh!" and Mr. Westerley evaded my  searching eyes. "You can't tell how  she may be situated now, that's all���������of  jourse, that's all. There's no mystery.  No secret except that which unfor��������� ,  which Sir Roger has told you. I'll go  :o him, my dear, I'll go to him. And "  later I'll come back to tell you the result of our conversation."  /In spite of his sympathy and kindness he was glad to get away, glad to  escape from me. I. saw that, and it  -nade me think. But I troubled him  with no more questions. If there were  i secret I should soon, perhaps, find it  >ut,"for'I had made''up my mind to a  /ery bold step.  Mr. Westerley patted my .hand, reas-  mrlng me fussily, as best he could; and  i bade him good-bye. Yet he suspected  lothlng. u  ' When .he had gone I * repeated the  word with a sob. ��������� "Good-bye, dear,  iweet.old home that I have loved," I  ���������aid .with wet; wide eyes;that took in  ..very familiar-' detail  .ot the . room..  ���������Qood-bye,   everything that has been  lear.    You aren't for me any more."  Then  the tears  which ��������� had been held  jack  for  so' long  splashed  down.    I '  iroke open the' envelope which Roger  iad given me and could scarcely see  fhat he had written.   There was more  .han an address; thi.-.e was a letter offering me a regular allowance, which I  ;t once resolved to reject.    My mother's name I found was -Mrs. Newlyn,  and she lived at 35 Easel street, Commercial road, Feckham.  Having read the letter I wrote a short  hote to Mr. Westerley, another to Roger Cope. In both of these I said much  the same thing, though I said lt ln  very different way������.  I told the two men���������the old friend of  my childhood, and the cousin who was  a cousin no more���������that I had decided  to leave Arrlsh Mell at once. , Delay  would only be painful.. I was going to  my mother, and would' stay with het^  If she would keep me, though I Intended to find work and no.t be a burden upon her. In any case a letter  would reach me If sent to her address.  I ended my note to the vicar with  grateful, affectionate .words; Roger's  -���������losed stiffly and abruptly, for I could  not make lt otherwise  When I had finished, the hardest part  of what I had to do was still to come.  I had to tell the news to the servants,  who had been at Arrlsh Mell Court for  so many years that they' had become  old friends.    .  It was hard for the loving, simple'  hearts to understand that I was actually saying good-bye. But they realized  It at last; and Evans sorrowfully promised that when Mr. Westerley and  Sir Roger Cope should call after I had  gone, he would hand them the notes I  had written.  Thero was no time to be lost if I  would be away before either the vicar  or Sir Roger Cope arrived. In the confusion ot my mind at first I had not  remembered the present need of money.. But suddenly I flushed and quivered, with a humiliating thought.  "Oh, Swift," I cried, "bring me the  green purse that you put away when���������  we came back from town."  (To be continued.)

A clergyman of Duluth, Min.-...  was engaged in conversation with :i  number of friends ihe other day, whe i  each started telling stories of wedding  he had performed. One of the party-  had this to offer:  Some time ago a great big fellow,  roughly dressed, arsci a wee mite pf a.  young woman came '.o him. They hart  no witnesses, and, In fact, did not care  to have any. Nevertheless, a bridesmaid and groomsman were selected,  from the household and the ceremony  began. They had pmrnised io love and.  obey and all the rest of the service,  when the preacher announced: "Kiss  the bride."  The bridegroom, on bended knee,  hesitated a little. Hied io say something and couldn't.  "Kiss the bride," .--aid the pas-tor.  "Why. parson, 1 did, afore I come  here at all." replied the bridegroom,  whose face had taken -the color of ,i  June rose.  The witnesses burst forth in laughter, while the minister had all he could  do to retain the serious expression  which he always wore when wedding  people.  Old Age.  DutTerln relates in his  rectorial address, delivered In ISO! to  the students of St. Andrew's University,  that he sat* down and wrote out every  word of his speech, and learnt it so carefully -by i heart that he knew that no  untoward accident or interruption could  interfere with its delivery.. The speech  Tasted nn hour and a half, and Lord Duf-  fcrin was able to go through it without once looking at a note. Lord Utif-  ferin had a curious practice in Canada,  where, apparently in those days shorthand writers in many places were not  plentiful. He frequently, at the request  of the reporters, rehearsed his speech  previous "to a meeting, and he was surprised to iind how this enabled him to  clarify and condense what he intended  to say an hour later when he addressed  his audience. That Lord Dull'erin most  carefully studied the art of oratory is  very manifest, and he was evidently  grateful to Wigan,-the actor, for giving him a, friendly hint on the subject  of his gesture at a dinner tliey were  both attending in the city. Lord Duf-  ferin in speaking' kept turning liis palms  to the audience, a practice which Wirjan  told'him they were specially warned  against,on the stage, a.*- it conveyed the  notion of weakness, whereas if the back  of the hand were displayed! the very  opposite effect would be produced."  PROFESSOR   JOWETT,    the   great  master    of    Balliol    College,  had.  wise words to -.peak on tne crucial topic of growing old.   He wrote to-  a friend:  "The later years of life appear tome, from a certain point of view," to be-  the best.    They are less disturbed  by-  care and the world; we begin to understand that things really never did matter so much as we rirpposed, and   w&-  are able to see them more in their true -  proportion,    instead    of    being'   overwhelmed by them.    We are more resigned to the will of God, neither a-fralA:  to depart nor overanxious to stay.   We-  cannot see into another life, but we be���������  lieve,   with  an  inextinguishable hope..  that there is something still reserved^  for us."  It is worth while to remember, his  hints for old age, full, as'they are, of a  practical wisdom:  Beware of the coming on of age. for  it will noi be defied.  A man cannot become young by overexerting himself.,  A man of sixty should lead a quiet������  open-air life.  He-should collect the young about  him. ���������    ,  He should set other men to work.  He ought, at sixty, to have acquires  authority, reticence and freedom front-  personality. ... .

CONSUMPTION  OF COPPER  A special  dispatch   froin   Diiluth" to  the New  Voik   Times   speaks  of   (he  rapidly  increasing  lumber  cut in the  Northwestern States nnd declares that  ���������'the Norl li western white  pine region  is but a" thing of a few more years."���������  meaning lliat tlio supply of white pine  from the Northwestern .States' forests  will be  speedily  exhausted.   This has  been the cry  for   tlie lust fifty years  Forty  years ago  some expert lumbermen declined that  the  supply would  not hold out more than tun or fifteen  years longer.   But the fact is that the  output of white pine from this region  is today greatertliiin it ever was before  and in  seasons   favorable   for driving  there   is   no   scarcity   of  logs.     One  reason    why   lhe   timber   has   lasted  longer,   in   the     face    of    enormous  consumption,  than   anybody supposed  it would, is that modern ingenuity has  devised ways and means of getting the  timber   di*-tant   from     the   batiks   of  streams down  to   consumptive points  at a cost that makes the  enterprise  commercially feasible.  No one can say with certainty how  long the white pine, forests will lasl ;  bul it stands to reason that, with the  growing population of tlie United  States there will be an end some day,  unless the percentage of consumption  to population can be diminished.  Systematic state and national forestry  will help some, but the lime will come  when Americans will have to reach out  into Ciinadii for our vast reserves of  native tin.bur.  CAN A DIAN WHEAT FIELDS.  Lord Strathcona told the directors  ""bT""tl"*"r"IlTTclson's^Bay CdmpaiTyT^itt  their recent meeting in London, that  within ten years Canada would be  able to supply all Lhe breadstulfs  requirements of the Uniled Kingdom,  lhis is not unlikelv.    Canadian wheat  Experts Say it is Immense���������  From 20,000 to 22,000 Tons  are Being Consumed- Every  Month.  The American Metal Market says:  "We think that few people in the  world realize tbe enormous consumption of copper, which  is going on at  the. present time. Two of the hest  posted authorities " in the trade, very  conservative men without speculative  bins, whose opinions " carry great  weight, estimate that tbe present rate  of consumption is from 45,000,000 lbs.  20,000 gross tons, to 50,000,000 pounds,  22,300 gross tons, monthly.  "If we accept the lower of the two  estimates we fitid that we are consuming at the rate of about 81 per cent of  our production, taking that of April as  n basis. We are awitie that many iu  t.he trade will cavil at these estimates  and pronounce them exaggerated,  they may hf-, but in view of the heavy  increase in the consumption of iron  and its products of finished steel and  iron, which are matters of absolute  proof, it would be very strange ifv the  consumption of copper had not greatly  increased, especially as it has had the  stimulus of abnormally low prices.  "Conservative estimates of the consumption of copper for the first four  months of this year are made at the  rate of 1S.000 tons per month, a total  of say 72,000 tons, exports have been  07,030 tons, making a total of 130.050  tons, against which we have produced  87,915 tons, showing a, deficiency of  51,705 tons.  "Extra figures of imports for,tlie  first four months of this year are not  yet .available, but assuming them to  have been at the same rate as those of  last year we should have received in  the four months of this year aliout  21,058 tons. These figures would t.ho\v  that accumulated stocks have been  depleted this year 20.747 tons.  "Accumulated stocks have doubtless  decreased very -much more than this  quantity; some estimate it ut double  this amount."  ���������i7'-*" *" \.-r.'M^mam.fXJ- . ��������� r-~.u^ji^jtsm.

Record Time Made By  Men  of
an English Railway Shop
A correspondent a   few   weeks   ago
expressed some   doubt   concerning   n
paragraph published in  the Montreal
fi i
u
i
#'
IT
-*qa
Still* to theeflfuct that the Great Eastern
railway company, of England, had
constructed a complete locomotive m
the wlioit space of 10 working hours. In
order to set the question at rest, the
Star communicated witli an expert in
London, who writes as follows:
Four yearn ago���in February, 180S���
one of the Loudon antl Northwestern
standard six-coupled goods engine was
erected at Ci-ewi* in 25A working hours
the engine un its completion running a
trial tiip aud being then taken into the
paint shop for final painting. A few
months later in June of the same year
a similar lent was performed at the
Altoona works of the Pennsylvania
railway company, the locomotive heing
or the four-coupled type, with a four
wheeled bogie at the leading end. The
time occupied in thiscase in assembling
the parts was 10 hours and 50 minutes
only; hut whei;eas at Crewe the start
was made with bare frame plateslying
flat without any attachments, at
Altoona the photographs entitled,
"commencement," showed the frames
erected with all theircrossconnections,
and even the cylinders   fixed,   motion*
- bars set, and crossh'ead. weigh bar and
other details in place. In commenting
upon this matter experts pointed out
that such a,,"commencement'' as tbis
rendered all comparisons with the
Crewe performance useless.
1 now, howev-Hi*, have to record a feat
of locomotive erecting which completely eclipses those to which I have jus1
referred, this being the erection in less
than W'hours of a freight locomotive
aad tender at the Stratford works of
the Great Eastern rail way, of whicli
Mr. James Holden is the locomotive
superintendent. The engine so erected
' was of.a six-coupled type, of whicli
there are over 200 on the Great Eastern
line. It has a cylinder 17". inches in
'diameter, with 2+ iuch stroke and  the
...coupled wheels are -1 feet 11  inches -in
'  diameter, the tractive force being thus
124.5 pounds for each pound of effective
pressure per square inch on the pistons.
The boiler is of steel, with  a  barrel -3
' feet 1 inches in diameter,'by 10 feet
long, and contains 2o2 tubes, 1 o-S inch
iu'diaineter: the length of the fire' box
casing is 0 feet:    Tbe inside lire box is
_^,of, "^copper, ..with ..a. heating surfaceof
100.9 square feet, while the tube  heat-
- ing surface is 1,107.4: square feet, making
- 1,208.3 square feet tin all. The grata
area is 18 square feet and the engine is
fitted with Mr.' G.-*Macallan's variable
blast nozzle. The working pressure,'is
140 pounds per square.inch. In woi king
order tfie weight of the engine is 37
tons, 2 cwt., of which 13 tons, J. cwt..
1 qr., rest on the leading wheels and 10
tons, 10 cwt., 3 'qr. ou the trailing
wheels. The tender has six wheels, 4
feet 1 inch  in   diameter,   and. carries
~ 2,640 gallons of water. When loaded
with three tons of coal it weighs 30
��� tons, 12 cwt., 2 qi\. tUe total weight of
the engine and tender lj% running
order being 67 tons, 14 cwt., 2.qr. It
ie of a. class principally employed on
main line freight and coal trains, the
load   consisting  of  35 wagons,  each
- carrying about 10 tons, and  the gross
. _lo.td being.about 300 tons,
menced, and by 0.10 a.m.,' or i) hours
47 minutes from the start (theie having
beenan interval for breakfast from S.15
to 9 a.m.,) the engine was completed
and taken out of the shop to be
photographed.
During the erection of the engine the
tender had also been in progress, it
having beep 'coininenced at !) a.in. on
the J Oth inst., ami linisheil at 7.40 a.m.
on the lltb, the men working the
ordinary hours. Later in tlie day the
engine ran a trial trip, and was immediately put into regular works. It has
since been continually running with
coal trains (weighing about 500 tons
gross) between Peterborough and
London.
In erecting llie engine the number of
men employed were .So, made up as
follows: * Fitler*.(inclUdiiig three boy*.)
311; smiths, 2: hoilermakers, rivet buys,
etc., 11. On the tender the numbers
were: Kitteis, 10; boileriii.ikers, 1(1:
laborers, etc., 20, making a total of 52.
From a strictly economical point of
view such feats as we have described
may by some be regardec as a iiii.-.laki*,
but it is to bo borne in mind that a
successful performance of this k'nd is
only possible under conditions whicli
are themselves highly conductive to
economy. Great rapidity of erection,
such as has been attained at Stratford
means good working to gauge and
standard dimensions, excellent organization, and last, but bv no means least,
a thoroughly good feeling between the
employes and their manage, s and foreman. In the case of the performance
at Stratfoid nothing was more noticeable than the heartiness anil spirit
with, which all the men concerned
entered into the work, and did their
best tc achieve a result which without
such strong interest would ceilainly
have been unattainable.
Now*engines and. tenders.have been
turned out of tlie Stratford shops at
the rate of two per week. Tliere are
three chargonien and three gangs of
erectors engaged on new engines, and
two chargeinen and their gangs' of
fitters and others,on fcndeis. The
average 'time for' building an engine
and tender is eight days. , In ilie c.i&e
of the feat just described, the thiee
chargemen and their gangs' wi-re
employed on the engine and on tiie
tender, the two chaigeinen just mentioned and their gangs.-

���yr. Rhodes i.�� :.x'.3 to have remarked,
aqaln and ag.iin, as ho lay on hi-> iiciilh-
bed, ".-o little d. re imi ��o niui-h to do."
Some of hi.-ur*t r.ri-.jri't-i are well under
way, but are iar from completion. There
is no reason to l tlirvc however, (lui
they will not be curried nut ami in fuel
there is every if.ison v,hy they should
po on. Mr. Rhode** was a practical Minn,
and his scheme? i'or development, vast ns
they were, re.-ted on n practical basis.
Tiie completion of the enterprises now
under way may he delayed liceaiihC they
have lost the impulse he gave to everything he took in hand; but some, if not
all of them, are certain to be carried
out. liis railroad to the north, for example, is pushing onward; it is positively necessary to the development of
Rhodesia and is bound to be completed
beiore many years.
Many articles have been written or
Cecil Rhodes' alleged project for a ''Cape
to Cairo Railroad." Maps have heen
printed of tlie route alon_j wliich tlie
line was to join the norlh and so'itli
ends of Africa. As a matter of fa:*.,
Mr. Rhodes distinctly said in the report
he made to tlie Briti.-h South Africa
Company, on May 2, 1S00, that though
he had no doubt of the ultimate building of stii'li a line the Chartered Company and himself were content to t;ive
their exclu-ive attention to ihut link in
the road whieh would extend from Bulu-
vayo to the northern border of Rhodesia, a distance of UOO miles. This road
was po.-iiively es-emial for the development of the territory of the Chartered
Company ami il was gnm_; to be built;
the further extension of the road to lhu
north did not enter into their plans.
It will be remembered that Mr. Rhodes
asked the Iiriti.-h Go*.eminent to guarantee the promissory note of the company,
so that il mijiht raise the funds at 3 per
cent, required lo build a part of this !)00
miles of road.     The Government refused
to give the guarantee, hut a few weeks
later  Jlr. Rhodes raised from companies
holding mining claims  in  Rhodesia  lhc
sum  of $2,500*1000 pn a' basis  of  3  per
cent, to start thc road toward the Zambesi.       The   work   was   pushing   noitli-
ward when  the  outbreak  of  thc  South
'African war caused a suspension of operations.      Money  had been secured lo
build the first 130 miles of thu railroad.
The sum of $15,000,000 would be needed
to   build  the.  remaining   750  miles  and
before the war began about $S,000,000 of
this sum had been guaranteed at 4 per
cent.,   tlie   money   to   be   paid   into   the
treasury   in annual instalments as needed  for  the   railroad  extension   of   each
year.
The Chartered Company guarantees
this loan, whicli is based upon the wonderful gold resources of the country.
They have beeu proved by the oliicial
surveys to exist. The gold-bearing area
is about 5,000 square miles in extent anil
the wonder of it is that all the quartz
crushing done by machinery in various
parts of the country thus far shows
ore that, though low ','i-ade, invariably
yields more gold to the ton than ou
the Vilwater.-iand. The paying liattue
of the ore has been demonstrated, ami
over 130,000 registered mining claims are
scattered over the country: but most of
the mineral region cannot be developed
���until machinery can be brought to it
by rail.
V.'ork on the railroad was resuu'ed
several months ago with every prospect
a that prosrr "-s would lie ' rapid. Mr.
Rhodes reported that a group of men in
"London was prepared to raise ��1,500,000
xo build a narrow gaune branch from
the main line to the extensive coal mines,
310 miles away, that were discovered

Her Ideal Man.
Ill*: was a lovely chocolate-cream-

_       tenderness   suggestive   of   butter

"The uiiiu that aspires to the privilege of pressing his moustache upon

"His mouth must bo firm but kind,
and his soft hnzel eyes will twinkle

"I fancied that I was rather a connoisseur In smiles myself," romnrked
her friend, "but I do not recall at this
moment seeing one ot the precise nature you describe. But T will endeavor
lo imagine It. Fill In your hero,

"He must be strong and resolute, yet
generous and tender to a fault; his face
will light up with the flre of a strenuous passion when his feelings are
aroused, and yet he will have his whole
nature in such perfect control that he
will never lose lhat grip ot himself
which Is the leading characteristic of
the true aristocrat."
"True aristocrats have been a falling
market for some time past," remarked
the friend in another aside; "but there
is nothing like putting one's trust In
Providence."

Why Women Can't Throw
Straight.
I
T has often been a source' oC wondei
to married men that their wive.-
should invariably hit the-cat, or
some other lnoffending object, when
aiming bootjacks and other missiles In
their direction. An explanation Is now
to hand, which, lt is hoped, will add
enlightenment, as well as consolation,
to any benighted Benedict who has experienced this idiosyncrasy. It appears
that the reason a woman cannot aim j
straight is on account of her collar- I
���bone being too large to enable her to !
acquire a free swipe of the arm. This I
simply shows that when kind Provi- i
dence sent woman into the void for j
man to lavish his affections and earn- i
ings upon, everything wns beautifully [
and systematically thought out. Had j
woman been physically constructed .-o j
that her shying powers were eaual to I
those of man, husbands would have i
had a mighty busy time of it dodging j
things generally. Thanks to that sam*- x
Providence, however, woman can still i
throw her lily-white arms round our j
manly necks and hit the bull's-eye ev- |
ery time. '      !
Np matter what the world may say .

And then a dreamy far-away loo'.:

she concluded:
"He must have no eyes for any other
girl in lhe world, bul must feel the god
of love spring into birth in his heroic
soul as his glance meets mine, and wt
realize that we were predestined fur

At this moment the door opened, and

1 -'and it always pleases me to see such

I "Yes, it does me, too. My wife's

Y wife's brother, seven years
old, was surely in France
with his mother (said Mr.
Lcroy Durand of the Rt.
Maurice Club), ror we had
received a cablegram ou lheir arrival,
hut his voice seemed to bo screaming
on the shore ot Lake I-nzhesoukl, in the
rit. Maurice Wilderness of Quebec.
Thai scream first reached our ears as
we puddled around n bluff and lost
hearing of the cascades. My wife,
kneeling in tho bow of our small canoe,
flopped" her puddle midway In the net
nt dipping It and turned her eyes about
to r.ie. They arc always big, as you
know, '1ml ihey wore twice as big then.
ITinl wns tho first time 1 had seen her
:ook scared, and we had hunted together, cast und west, north and soulh,
for live years past. When we loft New
Vcirk two weeks earlier the voice of her
little brother in a delirium of pain
seemed still sounding In her ears, she
lold me, although he wus so fn,r convalescent as lo have sailed on the
"Etruria" a fortnight before we left,
tor Quebec.
"Did you hear anything?" she asked
me now.
"It was some tree creaking." I was
trying to reassure her.
"Nonsense! There's no -wind."
In fact, the lake was so calm that
the up-slde-down shores were as distinct as the right-side-up ones, except
wliere trout wallowed in the mirror or
a darting kingfisher touched it with
spreading circles. White clouds were
as fleecy ln the lake as ln the blue
above us, and a perfect silence seemed
to hold all the void between the counterparts, while our canoe ran. on with
a lessening gurgle ,as we listened for
more than twenty seconds. Then the
childlike, the almost Infantile screams
came again, seeming to reach from the
far opposite shore by force of somo
poignant emotional quality of agonized
weakness. They ended with a. short
note like a wail choked off by faintness
or despair.
My wife knows the woods, and now
she said, "It must be a young bear���a
yearling���in a trap."
"Exaclly. Chief Josef."
She took to paddling without a reply.
She herself had' given Chief Josef the
order for a backrobe.
On wo went at a fasler stroke than
she usually sets, straight for the bluff
of the screams. For intervals of about
a minute they lingered ln our ears, and
then spread through the blue.
"Come right along up and set htm
free," said my wife, as she landed.
"And what will his" teeth and claws
be doing while I'm springing the trap
open?" I asked, when I had made the
canoe secure.
"Then come and put him out of his
pain.'.'
"Certainly, my dear, I'll go. But you'll
stay here ln the canoe. Jit won't do you
any good to see that bear."
"It might," she said, with self-reproach. "But, anyway, I'll never let a
trap be set on my account again.
Come!" *
"But the old she bear may he up
there, and you didn't bring your gun."
"Go up at once!" said my wife, who
had never imagined that a man with
a magazine ride could get into serious
troutde with bears.
So up I went; and as my wife always
obeys my wishes when I'm not there,
she got back into the canoe and pushed
off a few yards to be ready,-as I told
her, in case I might "find bears too
plenty on the hill."
But there was only the one, a young
bear, as my wife had guessed���not a
cub, not an Infant, tiut a child���one of
about seventeen or eighteen months. 1
wish I could quite forget that picture
ot despondency.
He was caught by ihe right fore-paw.
he had dragged the trap till the clog
caught between two small trees; then
he had pulled the trap back and forth
and round and round till the earth was
worn bare of grass and twigs and the
little bushes within his reach were
stripped of bark. His mouth was down,
biting gingerly at the twisted leg and
muttering most piteously, as If that
way ot getting free were too unendurable. Then, as the crescendo of
walling screams began once more, his
head was raised toward the sky as if
the creature were veritably appealing
to the Eternal Judge between man and
beast.
At that instant I flred, and he sank
down-ir*-de.--th-wtthia_sense__pf_xel_le^jL_
d<* believe. He did not struggle in the
least, so much had his strength. been
exha'upted by the long ordeal. His
trapped leg I found to be broken and
twisted as a towel is twisted in wringing It; the edges of the bone had torn
the muscles and tendons to a fibrous
pulp.
I went back to the canoe, told my
wife, "The be��r was a yearling," and
had no question* from her.

Men sometimes dream/of enormous
wealth stored deep in the earth, below
the reach of miners, but according to
the statements of Professor C. R. Van
Hise at the Denver meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, there Is little or no
ground to believe that valuable metal-
lie deposits He very deep ln the earth's
orust. Such deposits, he said, are made
by .underground waters, and owing to
the pressure on the rocks at great
depths, the waters are confined to a
shell near the surface. With few exceptions, ore deposits become too lean
to repay working below 3,000 feet. Nine
mines ln ten, taking the world as a
whole, are poorer in the second thousand feet than in the. first* thousand,
and poorer yet in-the third thousand

When   Crispi  Was   Lucky  in
Being Penniless.
THE late Francesco Crispi, the
great Italian statesman, once
escaped arrest as a revolutionist
because he did not have a sou wherewith to buy a candle. The story Is told'
ln the "Courrler des Etats-Unls" (New
York):
"On January 14, 18S8, Francesco Crispi, the recently deceased Italian statesman, then a political refugee Jn Paris,
received from an Italian friend connected with the Paris opera two gallery tickets for the performance of that
evening, which the Emperor and Empress wero expected to attend. Crispi
and bis wife were on the point of starting for the theater when the latter-exclaimed: 'Francesco, where shall we get
a candle?' They were in such destitution that they had neither candles nor
matches, nor yet the wherewithal to
buy them. Going to the opera would
Involve groping for their room at midnight and going to bed in total darkness. Too proml to confess their condition and to borrow a few sous they

���faded.
"On the following morning they
learned of Orslnl's* attack on the Emperor, the police raids, and the arrest
of all Italian revolutionists found in or
near the theater. If Crisp! had been in
the house he would certainly have been
among the first arrested, for he wan
known as an ardent disciple of Mazzini.

afterwards as to the cause of his unceremonious move, which had the look*

The Use or the Word "Lady."
It Is said that lt is coming to be the
fashion again to use the word "lady,"
and thnt the word "party" !s also In
better favor. For some years modish
persons have called ladles "women,"
and parties "functions." There was
some excuse for the former substitution
because "lady" was worked to death,
and so misused as to make lt rldlcu- *
lous. But vague as its meaning Is, lt
has a meaning (or meanings), to the
conveyance of which lt Is indispensable,
and the folks who have dismissed lt
from their vocabularies have not been
persons of .much philological discernment.. .
The' use of "function" for "party" has
been a mere fad that must have started
ae a pleasantry and gradually became
a habit. It makes It possible to speak
of a row at a ball as a "functional disorder"; but even that doesn't warrant
its vogue. It is a poor, borrowed, anglicized word, which the British-American language doesn't need.

HEPWORTH.       >  And it doth not yet* appear what  we shall be.���������I. John, iii., 2.  . lt is a very curious and' somewhat  startling fact that wc have just begun to believe that wc have souls.  Heretofore wo have cnterliiiiied vague  and fantastic notions on this subject,  admitting in a general way that a soul  is better than a body because it lasts  longer, but having no clear idea as  to its development or ns to its future.  This, life was so frightfully real that  any other possible life assumed the  shape of a dream. But of late the soul  has claimed the attention of science,  and, although progress has been made  .with slow and hesitating steps, we have  certainly advanced far beyond our fathers in acquiring a definite position.  Psychology has forced its way to the  liont, or at least toward the front, aiul  half the world are asking questions  concerning to-day and to-morrow which  the   other  half  are   trying   to   answer.  There is no reason why we should not  i  make a great many discoveries in connection with that vital spark which  'leaves the physical man so ' much a  Wreck that its presence is no longer welcome. We give it back wilh many  tears and an equal number of hopes to  our mother earth. We are all looking  rwith eager eyes into tlie beyond, and if  anyone in authority has anything to  say on the subject we listen with rapt  attention. Tliere is something almost  painful in the pa.thos with which we  aemand new facts about a continued existence, for our affections cannot and  will not be satisfied with the thought of  extinction.  Almost every family has some legend  or some memory of supernormal exper- -  lence on the part of a dear one who  " has just crossed the- threshold into tho  other life. In some cases "the sight bc-  cemes phenomenally acute, and tho departed appear with outstretched hands  to assist the" newcomer in the passago  to heaven. In others the ear is equally acute, and the overture of the an*  eels is heard as a welcome to the bright-  - er land. Death has * thus been robbed",  of its terrors and made easy. Theso  stories are floating in the* air everywhere. Can it .bo that they mean nothing ? And if they mean something, then  how much ?  Science' has a duty to perform in this  laree field. It has either ignored or  simply looked with the curiosity of indifference. But it is possible to gather  verified facts enough ' to formulate a  theory which may some time solidify  itself into a demonstrated faith. We  cannot afford to "pass by on the other  Bide/"' and the time is coining when,  skilful men will handle these things,  some Darwin bold enough to follow the  truth wherever it may lead, and tell us  what we long to know. The hour is  ripe, the attitude of thc general mind  is propitious, and we have a right to  look for startling discoveries in the  near future.  Or again. When a man conies to mo  saying he has a message from' the other  world I.may be incredulous, but 1 cannot forget that. the word "impossible"  has become .obsolete. I cannot help  hoping that what he says Is true, neither can .1 help believing that it is well  ���������within-the-lliiuts-ofypossIbilltyr^-That-  Christ enjoyed that privilege,' that the  Old Testament is filled with instances  of the kind, that ��������� St. Paul records a  most remarkable experience along these  lines', that, in the life of every saint ,aro  similar occurrences, cannot for a moment be doubted.    Have all these been  .. mistaken, and have we been dreaming  'dreams when we put faith ' In these  statements T Is the Bible,to.be trusted  elsewhere and distrusted here ?

"Wot do you call that tilling?" he  growled, as he tried to disentangle  himself, with the result that every  time he took his hands away from his  face he got a feather in his eye or a  bunch of them in his mouth.

Whilst dreams of world-wide empire and visions of t.he subjection of  the entire universe to 'the domination  of the occupants of Xo. 10 Downing  street, Whitehall, are disturbing the  rest of 'the average Briton, and turning even the late followers of Gladstone into rampant jingoes, ' thinking  men are reminded, by lhe publication  oi; Blue Books such as the report Just  issued by the Home Oflice on the employment of sdhool children, of some  of the evils which are eating away  the heart of ithe*EngWsh nation. Child  labor .in England bas been the'subject  of repeated legislation for nearly a century. Children eight years of age are  no longer allowed to work in factories,  nor are 'the hours of labor for older  child-workers so long as 'heretofore.  For the latter class a system of half  work, half school, has been devised;  while a series of acts of Parliament  have been passed forbidding the employment of young children In chimney-sweeping, acrobatic performances,  .etc., and severely regulating their  hours ol labor In other and. In my opinion, equally objectionable occupations.  Tt was fondly Imagined that tdiese enactments had fln-ally exorcised the evil  spirit of child labor; but the terrible  disease of poverty is too deeply rooted  In Great Britain to be eradicated by  ���������such .measures', and though now and  again a sore may be healed, lt surely  Teaippears ln some other part of the  body politic. Its latest development is  to be seen in the spectacle of children  of tender years trading in the streets,  or working In shops, or engaged ln  some form of ���������agrdcultu]-' labor which  has not been forbidden hy any existing 'legislation. The first symptom was  noticed by the Education Department  through its school inspectors; and six  years ago an investigation was held by  ���������that .body in order to see -whether the  ���������disease w-as quite so dangerous as represented. Enquiries were made from  tire various school managers throughout the country, with the result that it  was reported that no less than 144,000  children attending school were employed either before or after school  hours, or botHi, for a very small remuneration, at isohie form of'work for  periods ranging from twenty to forty,  fifty, and even eighty hours a week.  These figures raither underestimated  'the'total number, *as the compilers did  not include those children who had a  regular occupation after school, or  those whose work was not, in tbelr  Judg-ment," prejudicial to health.���������  Thomas Burke in the "Forum."

The February issue of 'die School Review, a periodical published by the University of Chicago press, contains a review of thc school system of Ontario  by Jlr. W. L. Uiniit ot the stall' of  Upper Canada College. Mr. Graut's attention is mainly di reeled to lhe secondary schoolb, wlueh may be regarded as the feature ol our system wherein  lies the crux of the diilieultica we experience. His consideration is careful,  and leads him to definite and clearly  expressed conclusions, lt is perfectly  natural that Mr. Grant is more concerned with the weaknesses than with  the excellence of our system, lie r.x-  prcssly admits the latter. Hut th.130  excellences arc our heritage from our  fathers, and this generation, if it is to  prove worthy ot its trust, must carry  on the work, must concern itself mainly  with further upbuilding rather than  with gratulnlions upon the work of the  past.  Passing over remarks upon tlie general administration ol" the system, .ind  upon the public school problem, winch  is confessedly far less complicated  than that of tho secondary schools; Mr.  Grant's view of the high scliool question may be considered. Originally, be  points out, these schools were opened  to provide matriculants for Uhe universities; they were next required*to give  ,the literary and scientific training ot  teachers-iii-'triiiniiig, and, thirdly, lhey  were required to recognize the claini3  of scholars who purposed entering business. Ile notes the theoretical excellence of the organization, and comments  on its weakness.-  First of all, the multiplicity of subjects is a difficulty. "The Provincial  universities, giving at matriculation a  liberal choice of options, have thrown  a burden upon the high school wliich it  is becoming more and more unable to  bear. Organized at a time wheat the  matriculation standard was simple and  unvarying, all its traditions, as well ns  tlie natural pride, both of the teachers  and of the municipality, lead it to try  to teach everything, with the result  that in the smaller schools the arrangement of a timetable is becoming  more and more impossible, and the  masters are alternately overworked and  idle, as the hour is given to a papular  or unpopular option."  After an excursus on the text-book  'policy of the department, in which "ne  holds that "it surely stands to reason  that a new country "with a comparatively small learned class does not do  wisely in rejecting the labors of Brittin.  and* the United States," Mr. Grant  points out that the work of turning out  teachers and matriculants has" gone on  "till we are almost ludicrously ' overstocked." He "deals in forcible terms  with the evils of the present oversupply  of teachers. "The raison d'etre of the  high school teacher seems to be to reproduce himself, and we have apparently arrived at a new example of the  inlinite series, where the little ileas produce lesser Ileas, and so ad 'infinitum.  In 1SUI). out of C,0(i7 pupils who left  tho high schools, 1.297 had signifl.**l  their intention of becoming teachers."  Meanwhile, Jlr. Grant states, "the commercial course has not been a success.  Technical subjects . . . have not as  a rule been so well taught ns in the  business college, while literature and  history have been' taught in a shamefaced way, which renders them almost  useless, 'in fact, the class, though. at  present showing a slight upward tendency, still lies under a vague stigma  of social inferiority, which for years  has blignted its efforts."  The result of this situation, according  to Jlr. Grant., is that the attendance is  less than it should be, and has been decreasing since 1895, Massachusetts, with  practically the same population as Ontario, has 40,000 high school scholars, as  against 22.4G0 in Ontario.  Two radical changes seem to Mr.G'rant  to be necessary. "If each high school is  to teach everything, then .the universities must greatly curtail their list ot  options,at matriculation ; if the options  are to be retained, and indeed increased,  in accordance with our present tendency,  then certain schools must confine themselves to certain aspects of work.".  "More important still," Jlr. Grant goes  on, "the high school must cut loose from  the university, and assume a more independent attitude. The metap'lior of  "th"ewld"ddcV^ri^rnrn^~lfte_ddrie_iiariiT  by leading us to think that the lower  rungs are of value only as steps to the  higher. The, vast mass of our citizens  must get their education . '. .. In the  primary and secondary schools. At present we turn out teachers and mutricu-  lants, not the two most important  classes in a new community. Those who  are to be the captains of industry," the  stock brokers, miners, engineers, wholesale and retail men of business, instead  of being given a course which would lit  them for a business career, and at the  same time give them a training in tho  rudiments'of literature and history,  must be content either with the narrow  (ruining of the business college, or with  a course designed to suit the needs ot  pupils who intend to become teachers or  to enroll themselves iu one oi the learned professions,"  Mr. Grant, in substance, suggests a,  new type of secondary school, complete'  ln Itself, not a rung in an educational  ladder, but. aiming at training for the  business of life the exceedingly iiumer-  ons class of lads who Intend neither to  enter the learned professions nor to  tench. The question as to whether thia  new form of secondary scliool is to be  established is proba1 ly the most vital  question in the educational world of,On-  tario to-day.

The correspondent says:  Mr. Sargent (the Director of Publio  Education) has devoted himself with  whole-*hearted enthusiasm to the work.  Ho began with about 100 teachers for  the camp schools. He has now 200. Before the end of the year he hopes to  add anothor 100 to his stall'.. Some of  fihese teachers are Dutch; the latest  importations are chiefly Scotch.

Presently  a chubby hand went up from one of the  benches and a confident little voice piped out the single word -'cow." His pronunciation was corrected;"and the next  minute the whole class was shouting in  unison "1 see a cow." Then a rival aspirant for fame discovered "two cows."  Another eagerly outstripped him with  "two cows in tlie green grass.;' The fun  grew fast and furious, and the shorn, in  unison as I passed on had reached to  something like the length of a response  to the Psalms.

History  teaches  that  it  is   unwise  to  leave any art wholly at the mercy  of  money-making motives, and vet, in tha ���������  English-speaking countries,    the   drama  has been left in that plight, while"much'  has been done for  music, for painting,-  for sculpture, and for architecture.

Professor Matthews  indicates one interesting result of pos-  ses-dng such a repertory:���������:  "To do justice to so varied.a repertory, a large and competent company  of actors and actresses would be rcqiiir-  ed-not stars, of cour.se. but ambitious  and accomplished performers.
