An enjoyable dance in lhe Opera  House last night brought a successful  celebration to a close.  ���������'There's a   chiel   among   ye  notes and faith he'll pretit' em."  June 19th was a red fez night in'the  annals of Revelstoke the nobles and  heroes of Al Koian Temple A. A. O.  N. M. S. will bear testimony to i he  fact that llio first syllable of  mn* town's name was peciili.-n Inappropriate to the occasion.  They came, they saw. (by the aid of  ihe moon and the electiie lighl) and  were conquered.  The hands of our up-tcrdate. clocks  pointed to 21.30 as the tired lull lub  ambled around,, thu hoise shoe curve,  the lights in the distance meeting his  j;azu were -is the balm of Gilead to a  fainting soul. Thus encouraged he-  got a hump upon himself and puffing  and panting came to a stand still  ready and willing to b'e unbridled  whilst his bin den discharged itself.  .'���������Allah soit heni" exclaimed the  faithful and their princesses, but  baik! the muezzin is sounding then  in the strains of tha chant of their  great tribe Al Merc-an broke upon  their ear.*, there was a yell replete  wit h gladness and approval. Slowly  ascending a flight of steps they  enfer.'d the mosque of Sheik P. R.  theie receiving fraternal greetings  from tluise who whilst they had noi  yet. imbibed ol the waters that flow  from the gargling fount of Iniun nor  triivei'.-ed tlie burning S.ihaia had  tin lied llieir gaze tow.ird the land of  t he i ising sun. Afterwards in the  tent of Potentate "Ali Ben Keese  assisted by othei' ahs milk, honey,  dates, laisins,, were tendered their  guests whilst Oriental mixed with  OLcidont.il fruit juices mado glad the  hearts of i he throng, but as all good  things ha ve an end the curtain fell  and as the deal pointed hall around  the circle (old stvle) refreshed and  reinvigoratc.l the ship of Hie deseit  turned hi.- f.u e toward the east  bearing \03 happy mnrt.ils homeward  who carry with them many pleasant  rei'ollfctions of llieir jouvnuy not lhe  least of whicli is"that unregeneiale' nf  Revelstoke.  SKLAir.  ex  The Propsrty of the Prince  Mining: and Development Co.  Proved to be of Inestimable  Value.  D. H. Willcox, foreman of I he Prince  Mining Company is down from the  Standard and ropmIs that after cross  cutting at t he lower tunnel they struck  a body of six feet of solid ore, some  simple*! of which he brought down  with him. The ore is very massive  and will carry n high percentage of  copper besides running up well in  silver and- some gold. At the time Mr.  Willcox left the fulj width ol the cue  body was not asc-erlaii-cil but in his  opinion it will probably be from S lo  10 feet wide, with a. depth of about 150  feet. This large showing, with the  eighl f?et of ore already piovcd on the  Conipiaiuler as already pointed out in  Tins* Herald, prael it-ally proves lhe  property of the Prince Mining Go. to  be a mine of .inestimable value, and  their legitimate and systematic work  of the past two yeais is thus rewarded.  The energy any pei severance dis  played hy the ollicials of this company  in opening up this wonderful property  and thus doing their share towards  developing the. iiiimex.se resources ol  the Big B.ind is woi thy of the highest  praise. Lure Heiui.ii takes this  opprutunily of congratulating them on  the successful -1 esnlt of their en tor-  prise,   and   feels   that   they have well  des-erver!  the  (inanci.il   benefits which  ������  will follow.  The sleam?r now brings this, as all  other Big Bend properties, within easy  reach of Revelstoke and The Hkrald  suggests that outside mining men take  advantage th������ieof liy'spendiug a week  or so among   the   different properties  in llie Big Bend.  ���������  ���������   The City Council.

WO years ago, when the cowboys  of north-eastern Arizona came  together to finfl out who was tbe  "best man" in various ways, Jamas  Evans won the steer-tying championship by roping, throwing and tying a  vicious stc-er in twenty-lour seconds.  Bul In a recent round-up 'the champion  did a more remarkabla thing, by which,  says the Kansas City "Star," he saved  his own and another man's life.  While he and some companions were  camping for tho night on a high tableland, which ended a few miles aw.iy in  an abrupt drop of two hundred feet, a  storm swept through the mountains.  :Made nervous by the lightning, the  herd oC fifteen liundred cattle stampeded in tho direction of the precipice.  Evans and his men mounted hurriedly  and. circling to the from of tho maddened cattle, tried with whoops and  revolver-shots to turn them back.  In the dense blackness of the night  Evans's horse missed hia footing and  went down In :i heap, one leg In a  gopher-hole. The horse ot a cowboy  named Davis, running close behind,  stumbled over Evans's horse, and Davis, too, came to earth and lay still,  unconscious.  Fifty yards away came the herd, and  a short Hash of lightning showed Evans thc situation. Tho swiftly moving  sea of oattlo reached one liundred yards  each way. Unable to arouse Davis,  and never thinking of leaving his disabled comrade, Evans took the only  chanccof saving both. He emptied his  own revolver and his companion's into  the center of the herd, cutting a breach  in the front of the mass. Then, throwing the inanimate form of Davis over  his shoulder, he awaited his opportunity.  As one of the leaders brushed by,  Evans, with one movement, put the  body* of Davis across the shoulders of  the steer, and mounted, also. Vainly  the animal leaped, bucked and side-  Jumped. "With liis* lej_s wrapped tightly around the body of his mount. Evans  drove his spurs d*-*.'P in, and held hiin-  selC and Davis in place.  The steer, wild with rage, agony and  fright, rapidly loft the herd in the rear,  and, veering to the right in a furious  gallop, carried his riders out of danger.  ���������Then Evans rolled off the back ot his  .strange rescuer, and a, half-hour later,  when his cowboys turned the herd at  ���������the rim of the canyon, and rode ���������back to  look for the foreman and Davis, they  found them, both unconscious. The  weary steer, with . his sides covered  ���������with"'blood, lay exhausted a short distance away.  The outfit ordered a medal for Evans,  and the steer has been pensioned for  life on the best alfalfa in the valley.  For Stockmen.

"Worle Hoi-nch Iu Spring.  Horses that have had a reasonable  amount of work lo do through the winter are in the best condition for tho  harder work of spring. But on many  farms the number of horses employed in  the spring is very large, and the work  for horses in the winter very limited,  hence many horses must be put at work  when in a ''soft'" condition, due lo their  long rest; and often it seems necessary  to put them at very hard work, with  long hours, at the outset- This should  be avoided, if possible, since the winter  idle home is more likely to be able lo  do a greater amount of work in the aggregate during the season if it can be  gradually accustomed to the liarAcst  work. Hut where this cannot he done,  the next best thing is good care, wliich  not only means ample food, but good  grooming���������which is always rest ful ami  refreshing to a horse���������and well-filling  collar nnd harness.

Farm and Home (ling.) says :���������  Among tho general public and many  breeders there is a general consensus  of opinion in favor of tlio mutton from  the Down varieties of sheep. This, doubtless, had its rise from the fact tbat in  years gone by the Southdown, by its  great quality,, gained for itself a name  in the market above all other descriptions of mutton, and, consequently, it is  not at all strange that all the other  breeds who claim the name of Down,  preceded by one or other of thc distinctive names, should have seized upon  at any rale a part of the reputation  of the Southdown. Be this as it may,  it is certainly a singular fact that tho  imported mutton that at the present  time holds the pre-eminence in our  market should be derived from a country where tbe Down breeds, either pure  or otherwise, number but a very oinal.1  minority of the whole. The country  we refer to Is Kew Zealand, and we  iind from statistics just fesurd that the  number of sheep in that colony is 20,-  2:1:5,01)9, of which FiLSA yer pent. a:t  Merinos, 2.4B per cent, pv.re-br.'d i!.n.-p  of British*varieties, ano St.24 pir cent,  are cross-brecis.

With the rise in the price of meat, attributed to ths American Beef "Trust,"  the London Butchers' Trade Society say  a remedy would be found for the high  prices there by the removal of restrictions on tho importation of Canadian  cattle. "Moro beef" is their cry. And  wliile wo have been talking of "free  trade as lhey have it in England," it is  remarkable that it is Britain's food supply that is protected. Xcw duties are  imposed on grain, and llio restrictions  against Canadian cattle arc viewed as  protection for an Irish industry. So  much so that one of the London butchers objected lo the resolution on tho  ground that "n special bill would bo  necessary lo admit Canadian store cattle, and'that if they introduced it tliey  would create another Irish grievance. If  they could Induce the Irish farmers to  breed and supply store cattlo for .England it would do'that country more jjood  than all the home rule bills."  VIu-ivh ot tlie (train Dutlcii.  English papers aj-c as much given up  to tho discussion of those new grain  duties as our own have been devoted lo  prohibition. One letter ^joints out that  "the duly of 3d per cwt. is practically Is  per quarter. A quarter of wheat yields  al least 120 quartern loaves, or even  more, meaning 210 of the 2-pound loaves  we ordinarily see. A rise of yad the  quartern loaf, therefore, gives os lo the  baker on his assumed extra expenditure  of Is por quarter, or a profit of *100 per  cent., even if the outlay be made. "Who,  then, is the vampire ''���������" The writer o������  the letter then proceeds to argue Hint  llio consumer does not necessarily pay  tlio duty, because there is a home production.  An old free trader writes :���������"What is  there about grain and Hour which renders  lliem more suitable for registration duties than any other imports? Why not  put corresponding registration duties I'or  revenue upon all other imports ? The  duty on wheat, in proportion to last  year's average price, is i per cent. Four  per cent, on the value of our net income  tax in 1901 would have produced ������1S,-  175,000. Such a registration duly, in  my opinion, would be perfectly justifiable for revenue."

Dr. Bcatlie Crozier, the distinguished  'Janadian who has for many years devoted himself to the philosophy of history, does not agree with the theories  advanced by Mr. Benjamin Kidd in his  .book, "The Principles of Western Civilization." In a criticism which appeared  in tho April "Fortnightly Review Dr.  Crozier states that tho contrast between systems of ethics on which Mr.  ividd's theory is based is an illusory  contrast and "incapable of throwing light  on social evolution. At the close of his  article Dr. Crozier invited a reply, lie  has received. one, but scarcely in the  iorm expected, ln the literary supplement of The London Times the following notice appeared-:���������"We understand  that Mr. benjamin Kidd does not intend to reply to Mr. Crozior's criticism  in the current number ot The Jfort-  nightlv lleview on his book "Principles  of Western Civilization," since, although  the invitation to reply is direct, Mr.  Kidd does not resard the article as indicating on the part of Mr. Crozier any  real grasp oE the principles discussed  in   the  book."

The experience of the l'ux Kay squatters of Anticosli Island when transplanted to Manitoba shows that, although Hie farmer may be a good fisher, the contrary is not the case. Ac-  coiding to Mr. Jas. Oslnrne, he is the  last of those settlers to leave Manitoba,  lie says they worked hard as agriculturists, but their minds were constantly reverting to the freedom .and charm  of their former condition. In a few  instances lhey met with a fair measure of success, but in lhe end pined like  children for the salt breezes of the Gulf  of St. Lawrence, and eventually ono by  one returned to the Atlantic coast, liis  story of tho failure of these frugal people to make a home on the prairies is  full of pathos. In the first place the  climate was unsiiiled to the newcomers.  They had heen accustomed lo the salu-  biious climate of the gulf, and the cold,  dry climate of Manitoba made them fool,  as lhey themselves express it, like. ,fish  out of water. These islanders, too, had  spent their lives fishing and hunting;  farming was new to tlieni. Then il was  so monotonous. Each morning they  awakened, and insl end of the ever-  changing seascape lhey saw nothing but  prairie. They worked listlessly all day,  and vowed lo return to their native  shores. But it was not easy for such  people to pick, up and got out, so lhey  worked away until the climate and tlio  changed conditions began lo tell upon  their health, and strong robust men and  women began to pine and weaken. Then  began tho movement eastward.  leresli Lettuce.  A lady tells in The New York Observer how she keeps lettuce fresh :  Last winter when letutce was a luxury, we had more on one occasion than  wo could use at one meal,' and so I put  what was left in a largo clish.sprinkled it  with cold water, and carried it down  and sot it on the cement floor of our  vegetable cellar, where it would be cool.  Then I turned a tub over it and came  away and forgot all about it. A week  or more later I was in the cellar and  I happened to lift that tub. You can  imagine my surprise to see a dish ol  lettuce as crisp as when Hie morning  dew is on it. But bo-sure and use a  large dish, so that the lettuce can have  room lo expand, ar.d stand it up if you  can. ]}o not. sprinkle very much and  be sure it is covered* air tight.

The  half a day Hint he gives of personal attention iniis't also do great good to a  brain toiler.

A View of Ireland's Ills  A correspondent sends some views on  the ills of Ireland, prefaced by an explanation that in llio optimism  of his youth he hopefully accepted the  view lhat home rule would be a sure  cure. "A lillle moro knowledge," ho  writes, _ "has amended my views. I  have been particularly struck by Iho  bcok 'Anglo-Saxon Superiority,' which  to mc is 'n remarkable production for a  Frenchman. Shortly, the theory of the  author, who is a most eminent social  scientist, is that the success of thn  An^lo-Saxon race is duo to its 'particularistic forma tion,' which lie explains to  menu that the individual relies for his  livelihood, not. on the community or  group, or public social organization,  bul. on himself, jr. Dcinolins seeks lo  show that it is due to Ibis individualism or sense of responsibility for one's  self that (he Anglo-Saxon race has been  able' to spread over nnd control so  much of the iicwly-openod portions of  the earth. The author lias not taken  tho next slep, however, and hns not explained Unit this individualistic formation not only involves the idea of re-  spcnsibilily for self, but also duty lo  one's neighbor, to allow him to work  out his own salvation, wi; i which latter idea seems to be involved Mr. Benjamin Kidd's idea of "toleration," and  thai broader liberty which ho finds llie  dominant idea at the present linie.  51. Demolins contrasts with this individualistic formation the communistic  formation. The latter he defines as  characterized by a tendency to rely not  on self, but on the community or tlio  group, family, tribe, clan, public powers,  etc. lie particularizes the populations  of thc i;;ast as the most striking representatives of this type, but the object  of his work is lo leach his own countrymen thai lhey, loo, aro of this class, and  arc falling "behind for this reason. Ke  Blates that the whole aim of education  .in France is lo lit youths to hold public offices, to rely on the community for  lheir maintenance, so that once they  have entered the public ser\ice lhey  are able lo forecast every important  step in .their lives except the date of  death. M. Domolius also refers lo the  family control which is exercised over  childien, and even grown men, giving ns  one example the French custom , requiring parents to furnish dowries on  the marriage either of a son or daughter.  M. Demolins finds that this communistic idea governs all' Celtic races,  a survival of lheir tribal or clan organization. * "Owing to their traditional  clan organization they show more tasto  for public Hutu for private life, for  political than for agricultural, industrial  or commercial struggles. In the Anglo-  Saxon world the Celtic populations mostly fill the liberal and political professions.  "We have evidence of this characteristic of the Irish raco in our own Province. When a public ��������� office becomes,  vacant there - is frequently a demand  that it should he filled by an Irishman,  and the reason given is that it is llio  'turn' of an Irishman to get an office.  Hero surely is the communistic idea that  tho individual has a cert ain ' claim on  the Stale .for his .maintenance, and  that the Irishmen arc not getting their  share."  'M. Demolins writes:���������"The constant  tendency of tho Anglo-Saxon is lo confine the powers that be lo lhe mninton-.,  ancc of public peace, without which no  business is possihle. The* tendency in  eommuiiisfic. ��������� societies is, on tho contrary, to disturb as much as possible  the public peace, in order to insure for  one's self or children, by the triumph of  one's party, some cosy ndminislralivc.  sinecure, since the idea of all- shrewd  people is understood to be lo live on  the budget. There was no other reason  for our several (French) revolutions;  there is no other reason for the revolutions which are of daily occurrence in  Southern America."  "See what has become of Southern  America under Spanish and Portuguese  rule, and behold flic transformation of  Northern America in the hands of the  Anglo-Saxon. II is like night and day."  When we look at South ' America,  as suggested by the author, we must  feel convinced thai home rule is at least  not a sure cure for unrest among Celtio  races. We mav admire the coinage,  lighting ability and energy shown in the  perpetual motion of their revolutions,  bul it does seem that these upheavals  aro-c*lucfiy_ducitOia_.desirc_for___oiri__e.+_ii__  conformity with the communistic idea.  The constitutions of Venezuela, Colombia and Hayti, for instance, each* provides for one President only, bul unfortunately more than one man wishes  lo fill these posts, even after the popular  voice, has chosen. The minority refuses  to "tolerate" even the will of the, majority. Would it not be so in Ireland T  The "very fact that many of the individual lenders of the Irish Parliamentary party aro mainly supported by conv  Intuitions is evidence of their devotion  to the communistic idea lo gain a livelihood from the group, rather limn by  their individual industry. The contributions to this fund seem to come almost entirely from outside of Ireland,  the returns for one week being reported  nt $3,000 from the United States, nnd  Si.'i00 from Cnnndn, an equal amount  from Cnpe Colony, nnd less than $2fl0  from Ireland.

Col. Lynch, M.P.-for Gal-  way, is attracting now attention, because it has been suggested that time  may free him from prosecution for LU  treason. lt is pointed out that Hib  act'of William III. provides that prosecutions for treason must take placa  within three years after the commission of the offence, but it is not clear  what statutory enactment applies to  this case. That some action Is shortly  to be taken by the British Government  is suspected from the arrival in England of Mr. Lewis Handlcy, a Natal  fanner, who experienced some of the  war methods of Col. Lynch's Irish bri-  Bade. "Colonel" Lynch told Handlcy  that he was a British subject, and when  asked by Handley why he, a British  subject, was fighting with the enemy.  Lynch replied, that he was fighting with  the Boers "for fun." The Irish brigada  (according to Mr. Handlcy), while on  the farm, smashed the mill property  and destroyed a -winnowing machine. It  wa-. on' March 7 that the "Colonel" took  possession of the iron and timber, and  it is said that this is to form a charge  of stealing against him.  Daisy Gorki's Folly.  Concluded.

To-night it appeared that they rather  liked to look at me as well���������when the  curtain was down, and there.was nothing better to do���������for as I peeped out  between the draperies of the box a  great marty opera glasses were lifted.  * My first imuulse was to draw back,  self-consciously; but it was my ambition to seem quite a ���������woman' of the  world (it usually is when one is eight-  ea.il. ant: I decided to appear oblivious  to the fact that I was a centre of at-  'tractlonr '-In a-monient, 1 actually became so: for two persons who were  gazing up at the box caught my atten-  ���������tlon. and caused me to forget .my important little self.

He was not at all ths  sort of young man I had ever known,  or was ever likely to know. Yet,  ' as * our eyes met for. an instant, a  thought-wave seemed to pass from.hia  spirit to mine. It was not a message,  it was a sensation; I can describe it.  by no other word. But I knew that  If I had heen horn in his sphere, or  he in mine, we must\have meant something In one-another's'lives. I wondered if the same impression was in  his mind; his eyes said yes; and,-with  ^^the_blood_rushing_hotly___tg__my_cheekB,^  I looked away, feeling.somehow guilty  and ashamed, as if I had spoken to a  'stranger.  Turning from him, "I encountered  other eyes fixed upon me with a very,  different, expression; 'A woman had .  come in late, and had just laken a  seat in the.stalls, ln such a position  as to command an excellent view, of  our box. She was dressed ln black-  satin, glittering with a great deal ol  ���������jet, and a large diamond comb gleamed like a crescent moon iD tier black  hair, streaked with grey.' The light  shone full upon her aquiline features,  as Bhe stared fixedly up at our. box,  and her eyes, enormously largo, though  desp-set, looked yellow-grey, and" luminous aB a cat's, in contrast with  the thick, short black lashes and olive.  ���������kin.  <��������� The woman fastened these curious,  pale eyes upon me for a long mo- -���������  ��������� ment, with an extraordinary, almost  greedy, Interest, then they travelled  from me to mother, who was leaning  back in her chair, listlessly reading  the names on the programme.

Until the'curtain went up oa the next*  act I kept her attention concentrated  ' upon me; but when the lights were  down throughout the house, except on  ..the stage,'I could not resist the unpleasant fascination that the dark face  With the pale cat-like eyes had already begun to exorcise over my spirit.  I glanced once more at the shabby  young man in tho pit, but this time  he was absorbed in the play, and I  experienced a slight, indefinable sense  of resentment that he 'no 'longer  thought of me. *��������� I, too, turned'to the  stage, and speedily forgot the Impertinent gipsy-face in the stalls, .until  the curtain fell, and I remembered her  with a start.

At last she turned her arm so that the under part, with  the palm of the hand, lay uppermost.  Half-way between the-* elbow and the  wj"lst was a purple patch, ahptit the  slze-of a common pansy, but of a different shape, and a horrid thrill went  through my nerves as I sharply realized that the. woman's action was  wholly for ine.

She would have gone without her'  cloak) which had been flung over the  hack of her chair, if I had not caught  it up and wrapped it round her shoulders. Snatching my own, as I opened*  the door of the box, I hurried along  after my mother's tall, swiftly-moving  figure. t  When we 'reached the lobby of the  theatre.the woman in black was nowhere to be seen; she had had plenty  of time' to escape from our pursuit,  if she*, chose, and so hateful I thought  her, so repugnant was the whole episode, , that". I could not help secretly  hoping that she had really gone.  But my mother scarcely glanced  abuiit the lobby. It appeared to me  that'she did-not* expect the object-'of  our search to be found there, for she  hurried to the door, hardly answering  _wheu 1 .ventured_to remind her  .that  our carriage would not" arrive fophalf  an hour at least.  As we weut out into,the chill of the  April air, a four-wheeled cab was  brought up to the pavement by a commissionaire, and a woman got in. ��������� My  heart gave ' a quick bound as I saw  that it was the one whom we had come  to seek." ............  "Now Bhe will drive away," I hastily thought, "and we shall perhaps  follow.'" It<wlll be so long before;we  can start, though, that we shall certainly not catch up with her.'  But instead of giving the quick order that I expected, the woman with  'the heart-shaped scar on her arm kept  the commissionaire in conversation.  She seemed not only ln no hurry to  depnrtl but actually to be glad of an  excuse for lingering.  It would be long before the crowd  should, come streaming out of the theatre, at the end of the play, and at  present Wellington street looked empty and deserted. ' But two or three  cabs .were crawling along, on their  slow way somewhere else, and my mother, rustling in her yellow satin dress  down to the pavement, without even  holding up the long, soft- folds from  contact with'the stones, hailed one of  the' passing vehicles with an imperative gesture.  . The hansom stopped; the woman in.  black said' something in a low tone  to the commissionaire, who repeated  the words to her driver. The four-'  wheeler moved slowly away and oui  cab took Its place.  ��������� "Get in, Sheila,"- commanded my mother in an odd, strained voice, utterly  unlike her own.*'  "Surely you first, dear," I objected  gently.  "I am not going with you," she curtly returned.  "Not���������going with me ?"  "No. Please don't stop to argue.  I want you to drive home at once. I  shall follow later���������exactly bow soon  I can't tell. But you are not to sit  up, and there Is not the slightest cause  for anxiety. Get into the cab as  quickly as you can."  I loved my mother, yet I was a nttle  afraid of her in some moods; and it  was an effort to withstand her. But  I hesitated, though her hand was on  my arm. urging me forward.  * "I beg you to come with me," I  pleaded, "or else���������to let me go with  you, whatever you may mean to do.  I.am frightened. It is all so strange  ind miserable. I can't help being  mxious.     I can't leave you like this,  mother.     I "  "Obey me at once, and don't let us  have a scene here in the street," sue  whispered harshly. .������  Her gaze compelled mine, and there  was no yielding In its light, only anger  and determination. Tears sprang to  my eyes, and there was a sickiy coldness at my heart; but I paid not another word, and climbed meekly into  the hansom, as I had been bidden.  "To the Coburg Hotel, Carlos place,"^  my mother directed the cabman. I  leant out to say* ;'good-bye," but she  was moving away .with a look on tlee  Jloar-cut profile which seemed to say  that already I was forgotten.  ' My cabman was turning. In an instant more I should lose sisght of my  mother. The dark, malicious face of  the woman in black rose before m*.  as clearly as when the great eyes had  goggled up at the box. A vague presentiment lay coldly on my ureast. I  knew that,-somehow, n turn\ng-polnr.  In my happy, quiet life had boon reached. Nothing could ever be the same  again.  With a curious feeling, as If a hano.  grasped my throat and constricted my  breathing, on a sudden desperate Impulse, I half rose, from the seat and  pushed up the little door in the roof of  tb=* hansom.  "Don't take me to the hotel yet," I  stammered, guiltily. "I'll give you  three times your fare to go after the  lady I have just left���������the lady In the  yellow brocade cloak. Don't lose sight  of her, but don't let her see tnat she  is being followed."  "All right, miss," returned the man,  and a whiff of spirituous fumes came  down to me with- the answer. His  voice was slightly thick,- as if he had  had cotton wool under his tongue; but  I scarcely thought of this at the time;  I was only to-remember later that I  had dimly noticed It.  The moment I had acted upon my  impulse, and reversed my mother's  orders, I was deeply ashamed of myself; yet I would not undo what I had  done.  '  I do not think that there was the  slightest arriere pensee of vulgar curiosity in my motive. My feeling was  far to poignant for that, and as far as  I knew myself, my one desire was  somehow to make sure that no harm  befel my mother. I could not quietly  go back to the hotel, where we were  stopping for the season, leaving her  alone to face���������I knew not what. I  could not let her disappear behind a  veil of mystery and night-darkness,  and af all risk I would be near her.  I would.at least know where she waa  going. ' .  If her mind were not preoccupied  with extremely serious matters, I waa  certain that she would not have sent  me' back to the hotel at this hour of  the evening unaccompanied. She had  nl ways been very strict as to my comings and goings, almost unnecessarily  so, I had often thought; and since she  had brought me to town to be presented and experience the delight of  a London season, I had not once been  allowed to go into the street, even in  broad daylight, unprotected by my mother or a maid. I seemed to myself  now suddenly forlorn, uncared-for, and  my heart would have ached with sheer  self-pity it I had had time to dwell  upon my own woes. But there was  much besides this* to think of.  My hansom had turned away from  the pavement, and I was unable to  see, without giving directions to stop  again (which I dareu.not do), what  had been my mother's next step. We  went on slowly," and the idea-in my  mind was that she doi btless intended  to call another .cab for herself in  which to follow the woman with the  heart-shaped . scar. .,1 supposed that  my driver-was waiting until, her movements should guide" him as'to the direction he must take. But suddenly,  a oab went by, an.-; a ray of light  atriking the nearest window showed  me a thing" so st.-.mge that I was near ���������  to. crying out in my astonishment.  CHAPTER II.  -  .  Telling ot a Thwarted Chase.  I saw that my mother and the woman in black were together, sitting  side by side.'. Tne light flashed upon  their faces���������mother's pale as marble���������  then they wera blotted out in darkness. Their cab wont on, my driver,  obedient to instructions, following at  n~distance.-  I had been in town only for a month,  having come in tims to be presented  at the first drawirg-room of the sea-  eon, and I knew little of London, -al-  ircst nothing of this neighborhood.  When we had driven through the  Strand, patted Trafalgar square and  I'Hll Mall, rattling into a dingy sido  street, I began to lose the,sense of  direction. We soon left crowded thoroughfares behind, and came into a region' cf meaner streets, with smaller  h*. ii^es. I could see the four-wheeled  cab about fifty feet ahead, sometimes  less, sometimes more, and it began to  seem as if I always had been, always  would be, following on and on through  the night to some mysterious goal,  nc%-er to be reached. Were we going  north, south, west or east ? I did  not know.  Suddenly the four-wheeled cab disappeared round a corner. For a few  seconds it was out of sight, and when  my hansom had also turned, there, in  the next street, were two cabs. Ono  had stopped, in front of a house, tho  door of which opened and shut as wo  drew near. The other was jogging  on at a distance.  We had never been'near enough to  see the number on the back of the  cab, and now, when my driver huskily  inquired whether I would stop to examine the first conveyance or proceed  after the second, I was at a loss to  decide. For an instant I hesitated,  and then said that I would* s;top.  Almost as I spoke 1 saw that I had  made a mistake. The lamps of the  hans'om shone into the face of tho  other driver, who sat half dozing c.n  his box, witn his vehicle drawn up beside the pavement, and I was at once  assured that he was not the man I had  tired horse such a lash with his whip  that the poor beast started, and flung  his heels almost -against the dashboard.  From a trot he broke into a wild  gallop. Down came the lash oncie  more, making him rear, and, frightened and angry, I called to the driver,  pu emptonly forbidding him lo use the  whip again.  By this time the four-wheeler had  turned another corner, and was out  of sight. But my man went on as  if he were sure of the direction, and  I could only hope that he had reason  for his certainty.  We also Hashed round the corner,  almost upsetting against a lamp-post,  as one of the wheels ran on to the  kerbstone. I strained my eyes through  the darkness, and my heart sank as I  found that the four-wheeled cab was  still nowhere to be seen.  Presently we came out into a broad  road. Here there were a number of  vehicles, and I strove to peer Into the  windows of each as we tore past it,  the frightened horse still plunging and  throwing up his heels.  "None of these is the right one," I  sharply Informed my driver. "Perhaps It' went to the left."  He took this as a command, and  tinned the horse suddenly, only just  escaping another accident.  I began to see that something was  very wrong. I-Yom the first the cabman's voice had been odd, and now his  manner was equally strange. He  drove wildly, apparently no longer  with an> nic-tliod. We left the broad  thoroughfare, and threaded our way  into narrow streets once more, bringing up at last in a mews. I had hoped  against hope that, fronrhis high perch  the driver could see more Hum I, and  that he.st-:;i kept the quarry in view.  But the mews was deserted, aud just  as the fellow was about to bring the  whip down on the horse's back again  ���������as if the animal were to blame for  his failure���������I raised the trap.  "I told you not to whip him," I exclaimed. "You have lost the cab we  were following a long time ago, and  you are driving at random "  "Look 'ere, miss, 'oo's doin' this, you  or me ?" grunted the husky voice. "If  you don't like the way I drive, you  can pay me my fare and let me go.  That's what would suit me best. I  ain't no night cabman, I ain't. ��������� I  want to get-to my bed some time afore  mornin'."  "Stop the cab and let me get out,"  I said. And I am afraid that my voice  trembled a little, for I was very near  to tears.  - The cab drew up so abruptly that  tho horse stumbled, and before he  could recover himself I jumped out of  the vehicle on to the narrow pavement.  Fortunately I had my mother's purse  In the .pocket -of my long/ evening  cloak. It contained a roll of notes,  several sovereigns and some silver as  well. Fumbling in one of its compartments I extracted two halt-crowns  and held them up to the man, who  took the crowns but broke into invective, violently demanding more.  Frightened at the strange oaths' i  well-nigh flung another florin into his  extended hand,- and then, his voluble  complaints still following me, I turned  and fairly ran.  I hurried out of the mews by the  way I had been driven In, aud was  trying to recall the direction in which  1 ought next to proceed,when I heard  a faint patter of running footfalls behind me, then suddenly felt a violent  blow on my right arm.  With,my breath coming thick and  fast I turned my" head over my shoulder, hardly knowing what I exp.ected  to see, but witha vague impression  that the cabman, might have jumped  from his seat and pursued me to take  by force the extra payment he had demanded.    -  What I did see was the hideous, sodden face and form of a' wretch in rags,  a fluttering scarecrow of the * night,  who had caught a glimpse of the purse  as I passed his dark lurking-place ancl  meant to hav.-. it.  The blow on my arm had heen intended to send the purse flying from  my, hcind.* When the attempt tailed  one lean, black claw caught my wrist  while another seized the purse and  tiled to wrench it out of my lingers.

His grjsp on ttty wrist loosened, and,  writhing myself free, 1 darted fiom  him, running towards the apprqac'.Jug  cab.  I heard him utter an oath.

CTX N    extraordinary coincidence   has  Ll     been developed by a recent Arctic  *JA    tragedy  brought  about   by   the  expedition  o������  the  Duke  of   tho  -Albruzssl.  When   this   navigator' went   on   his  journey to the Nortii Pole he' took with"  him among others Lieutenant" Querlnl,,  a  A'enelinn  gentleman   of "an  old .arid  noble family.

Now, at the very time whon this' accident occurred a professor In the technical school in Trieste, wliile rummaging in the archives of that city, discovered a manuscript bearing the date  1001, and containing nn account of n  Journey made by one Pletro Querlnl, In  1431, to the Arctic regions. Querlnl is  not a common rmme, and a little Investigation showed tbat Pletro Querlnl'  was a direct ancestor of tho other Pletro Querlnl who lost his lite ln the Arctic sous a few months ago.  "Querlnl," says the old manuscript,  "sailed from Cundln for Flanders on  board a vessel loaded with merchandise and precious stones. Whon he ar-  ���������Tlved in Flanders he sold his cargo and  started for tho Arctic regions. A storm  forced him to abandon his ship and to  tnko refuge with his crew In two barks.  The wind then carried them 'to the  coast  of  Norway,  but  on   January  D,'  1432. Querlnl was again shipwrecked  near the Lofodcn Islands in seventy  degrees north latitude, and nlnwst all  his companions wore drowned."  For some time it wns supposed that  ho, too, had been drowned, but In January, 1433, he appeared ln Venice with  ���������ten companions, the only survivors of  his original crew of seventy-eight mon.  It seems that he succeeded in yainlng  the shore after the others had been  drowned, and then slowly made his  way h'ome through Denmark and Germany.  "Although these two Pletro Quer-  Inis," says a French writer, "are separated from each other by five centuries,  we find the same destiny at work in the  case of each." And he continues, with  a dash of playfulness: "Is it not possible that the adventurer of the fifteenth century, desiring to enjoy once  more the exciting days of his youth,  actually became incarnated as a hero  of the twentieth century?"

She was one of those frank, open girls,  who don't tell things beyond a certain  point, and who, by their very good  fellowship,'keep a man at a certain  distance. She gave me more than she  did to some people, and I was grateful;  but I never rushed in. A chance remark, made without a suspicion of  where I was treading, brought things  to a crisis.  It was at the end of a stormy afternoon, and we were sitting over the  fire, she in a deep wicker chair, and I  down on the hearth rug. She wasn't  paying the least .attention to what I  was saying. When a bucket of rain  would slash against the window, sho  would look over her shoulder, with a  nervous twisting of her lips, and her  fingers kept doing exercises on tho  arm of her chair or plaiting up, the  ribbons of her dress. The house shook  a little, and that made me think ot  the ocean, and that suggested Powers,  and I spoke without a glimmer of intention.  "Why, Powers sailed to-day, didn't  he?"  She didn't answer, and I looked up.  1 don't suppose I had ever really seen  the girl before. Tho guard was gone  and she was staring into the fire with  an expression that struck me dumb.  She rubbed the back of her forefinger  first across one cheek and then across  the other, as though absently, but I  saw.  The conventionally suitable thing  would have been for me to clear out,  but I didn't. I took one of her hands  and gripped it.. Her head w;ent down  on the-arm-of her chair, .and we sat  there without speaking for a while.  Then she began in the middle, aa  though she had been telling me about  \t all along.  "He couldn't have cared for me, anyway. We aren't the same kind," she  said. "He looks on lite, while I am  always in the very centre, living it.  He is Interested and sympathetic, but  always the impersonal critic. I don't  believe he ever had an overwhelming  Impulse in his life. Ho moves by deliberate, theories. We're altogether  lifferent."  ' "But, Genevieve, he thought a lot of  you, I know "    1 was    blundering  ion, but she broke In.  ���������'Oh, he likes me; he is even fond of  me.

"If    you   had     shown     It  a    little,  vculdn't it have "  I  continued.  She shook her head and started to  <ppak. then faltered. Evidently this  *w*������s the hardest of all to say. At last  .t ,came, with an effort that made mo  set -my  teeth.  "He couldn't have fallen in love  with a woman who���������hadn't beauty!  The artist ln him was too strong. I  ���������should have recognized that in him,  even If"he hadn't���������once���������told me so.  He told me os if he���������meant me to un-  lerstand  It!  "It Is not his fault; it's the way he's  made. But it kept me from ever  showing what I . felt as nothing else  could have���������nothing on earth!"  I looked up tn surprise, for I had  .'orgotten that Genevieve was not pret-  ;y. You grew so fond of her face that  fou never thought of her features.  "I can see perfectly that we couldn't  nave been happy together," she went  in, as though Impressing a line of rea-  toning on herself. "1 should have been  aorrlble jealous of every beautiful  jTOiriHn he came across, especially if he  wore to paint her! I could forgive her  !ace, but not her shoulders. I'm such  t poor little bag of bones."  I wanted to tell her a hundred com-  'orting things, but I knew belter.  She was not. in a mood for anything  jut what she considered thc truth.  "It would have been a real calam-  ty If he cared." she said, going oa  Kith her pitiful argument against her-  Ht '. "He must be free, if he is to suc-  :e2d. and oh, he has genius!

"A man couldn't care like that. " I  laid with a long breath.  'Te'haps it's just because I know  Vt- hopeless anyway, and so I put on  l fin? motive.

"I can't answer for  myself any more, not since I've caught  myself, night after night, refusing Invitations and making excuses to stay  at home, just in case he should drop  in.

"I'he storm  made me blue and foolish, I suppost.  Promise me, on your honor, that you'll  never tell this or even hint it to anyone else all your life long."  I promised readily enough.   I wasn't  likely to want to tell.  ���������       *������������������������������������������  It was the same kind of an afternoon, nearly two years later, that I  hunted up Powers in Paris. His success hadn't brought a bit of big head  with it, and he was as glad to see me  as If wc still belonged to the same  world. Almost bis first question was  about GeBevleve, but I couldn't tell  him much. I hadn't seen her for a  year, and though she had promised to  write to me, I had never received more  than one or two conventional notes. *  "That girl," said Powers thoughtfully, "meant more to me than any woman I ever met in my life."  I hold my breath and waited. Powers was never moved to a burst of confidence in his life, but he was always  ready to cooly analyze himself, body  and mind and soul, for anyone who  was interested.  "I don't suppose a man ever was as  much in love as I was, and fought it  so resolutely," he went on. "I suppose  she knew lt���������girls generally do���������but I  never once let it come to the surface.  I didn't really acknowledge it to my- .  self till the day I sailed, a day something like this. Then���������whew!" Ha  shook his head, his eyes contracting  at the "memory.  "But why did you fight?"    I asked.  -"Well, there I was with my future  absolutely uncertain and the big fight  before me, and I wanted lo go into it  free.    I  was  horribly  ambitious,  and  when it came to choosing between myself and my work, myself had  to go  ! every time.    Besides,  it .-would    have  1 been brutally unfair to her, even it she  had cared.    It might have, been years  and years before I could marry.   How  could  I  know  I  was  going  to be  so  lucky?" -   -, v  f "Then, she didn't care!" I'asked.-1  had sworn, not to . tell, and heaven  ! knows 1 didn't want to, but the se-  ' cret was forcing its way out in "spite  of me. I felt as though I had two  , lives in my hand.  I     "No she was just- a good  comrade*  and I tried to fool  myself by taking- -  the same attitude, though I don't suppose it fooled anybody else.   If she"ha4  sver   shown ' the least   symptom���������oh,  ��������� I'd have given in in a second.   But she  '; never cared a bit���������said good bye to me  1 is jollv as could be the night beforo  [ left."  I     The secret was scorching my tongue,  out my promise to Genevieve still kept  ' oae debating.  j     "Her features weren't a bit good, but'  j she  had   the   most  expressive   face  I  sver  saw,  and   the  most  attractive,"  Powers said.   "It had a beauty higher  : than that of form and coloring, a sort  i of inspiration.    I have tried a hundred  times to catch it,    especially in -' that  martyr over there on the easel.  -It is  a look of pluck and radiance.and���������oh,  I don't know!    I can't get.it!" ..*,,'  i     I knew,    and  opened    my  lips* to  speak,  then  hesitated again.' ,  -- "It's so strange." he went on." "She  ������lv,-ays prophesied that I would fall tu-"  love, quite deliberately, with "soma  j oeautiful peasant girt over here, a woman ot the people,' perfect physically,  j with a lovely nature,, and no intellectual power whatever.' Queer, .wasn't  It? But I forgot," he added. ,'",You'  aaven't seen my wife."   "A  ~  ��������� "'-'  I started up. There was a tumult In  jay mind, but, God-forgive'-me. It  wasn't an unhappy one. ���������  "You are married?"  "Yes, my wife is an Italian'. She  "������at for that head in the corner."

Here is a description, ns short nnd  clear as possible, of the coi ona tion  ceremony. It is a ceremony of threat  antiquity, every part of which is.  established hy precedent.  It begins on the arrival of thu Kin.;  ancl Queen at k AVoiilii.insli._- hull,  whither Their Majesties will drive  from Buckingham palace, and is as  follows :  On their arrival at tho hall there  are alrefioy assembled there the  processions of the King and Queen.  The regalia are laid before Thoir  Majesties, the chief being the sword  of state and curtana, or coronation  sword, and two other, the golden  spurs, the gilt verge, St. Edward's  crown, the orb with the cross, the  sceptre with the dove, the sceptre  with the cross, St. Edward's staff, the  crown, the ivory rod, the bible, the  chalice, and the patena. 'All then  proceed to Westminster Abbey,  where those who are to witness the  ceremony, and are not of the royal  processions, are assembled. -The King  and Queen on entering seatthemssclves  in chairs below the thrones.  The archbishop of Canterbury presents the King to the people, and asks  if thoy are prepared to do homage to  him.   They answer:  "Godsave King Edward!"  Then the King and Queen sit in  chairs ot state provided for them''.  First the King, thereafter the Queen,  rises and presents at the alter a pall of  cloth of gold and an ingot of gold.  There 'follow the litany and sermon,  and the taking .of the o.tth by the  King.    The oath is thus:  The ' Archbishop of Canterbury���������,  "Sir. are you willing to take the onth  usually ta'.;en by your predecessors?"  The King���������"I am willing."  Archbishop���������"Will yon solemnly  promise aud swear to - govern tbe  people ot this - kingdom of - Great  Britain, and the dominions thereunto  belonging, according to the statutes in  parliament ' agreed on. and the  respective laws and customs of the  same?"  King���������"I solemnly promise so to  do."  Archbishop������������������'.Will you, .to your  power," cause law and justice' in mercy,  ���������to,bo executed in-all your judgments?"  ' -King���������"I will."* .

When the anointing is ended the  king rises,  bishop of York. The queen's ring i.s  of gold, set wilh a large plain tabic  ruby, with sixteen other rubies of  graduated size round the circle of the  ring.  Their majesties then lake cominun  inn, laying aside their crowns in token  of humility ttiGnd.

"Where it Is nocessary, as for the purpose of this trick, to introduce come  article into a lemon, the necessary  preparation should be made aa follows: A lemon with a thick hard  rind should be selected, and a plug-  shaped piece aboyt an inch ami ci half  in diameter should be scooped with o  sharp knife out of one end. The pulp  may now be removed leaving Iho rinU  a mere shell. "Wfcile the piece originally cut out will form a stopper, which  may be secured ia place by thrusting  a hairpin or a. piece o������ wire through  the fruit and plug from side to side,  and ripping off the ends flush with thc  outer surface. When the performer exhibits the lemon, he takes care to have  the cat end towards his palm.  This was one of Herrmann's favorite  tricks, and it affords a very good example of his style of working.   The performer comes forward requesting the  loan" of a lady's handkerchief.   While  it is being procured he produces from  the hair or whiskers of one of tho spectators a  lemon whicli  he    carelessly  thrusts under soniebodys nose in order  to prove its genuineness.    (This lemon  which, L   course, was palmed, is a prepared one  from  which  the  pulp  haa  been scooped out, and which contain*  a substitute handkerchief, so cannot be  handed for examination.)   Turning for  an Instant towards the stage, he tosses  the lemon   on to his    assistant, who  catches it, and places it on the table.  The momentary turn from the audience  enables   him  to  get  from   under   hii  waistband, and to palm, a little bundle  of pieces of cambric, each about foui  inches square.    Taking the borrowed  handkerchief he roll's it into a ball between his hands, aud hands it (apparently) to some one to hold, in reality  substituting the torn  pieces  of  cambric.   He then turns, and takes a few  paces   towards   his   table, meanwhile  tucking the handkerchief*    under his  waistcoat, and    taking therefrom    in  place of it a strip of cambric, about  four or more feet long and four inches  wide rolled up into a small*; compass.  This he palms.   Suddenly turning back  he exclaims, My dear sir, what are you  doing with that handkerchief?   I never told you to do that!    The innocent  holder looks up in astonishment, but  the performer   continues:     Will   you  have lhe kindness to open the handkerchief?    He docs so and finds it all in  pieces.   After a little chaff about making him pay for the damage, tne performer  says,  Well  I  suppose  I must  show you how to restore if.   Here he  again takes the pieces and folds them  together,  saying,  See you  must take  them as I do, and rub them very gently  with  the  left  hand.     Substituting  the prepared slip he hands it to him;  but, when he begins to* cut exclaims  again,  Dear me, what- are you  doing  now.    r told you  tlie left hand,  you  are making matters worse than ever.  The handkerchief is now found to be  a loud strip.   The performer endeavors  to induce the ownor to accept it in this  shape,  which  he answers  her  is the  newest style,'but she naturally objects,  and begs that it may be restored to  Its original condition.    For that purpose, the performer rolling the slip into a ball, places it in his magic pistol,  and rams it down with his wand.   Appearing    to reflect for a moment,  he  Bays, Where shall I fire it?   Ah! suppose I aim at that lemon on the table?  Bang!   goes   the  pistol,   and   the   performer, taking a knife cuts the lemon  all around (Hinging the rind carelessly  on the stage), and produces the substitute handkerchief (professedly the original).   He comes forwaid to the audience with it, and after thanking the  owner, makes a gesture of returning it,  but as if struck by a sudden thought  checks himself and says, I'm afraid it  smells rather strong of lemon.    Will  you allow me to scent lt for you?    I  -have-somcjcapital_colo.gne here.   ,Go-  ing back to his table, he piaces tie  handkerchief on a plate, and pours on  it, turning as he does so to the owner,  and saying, Please tell me whpn you  think there is enough.   While his back  is turne'd, the attendant, who has been  standing by holding a lighted candle,  with a mischievous wink at the company, tilts    the candle   and sets    the  handkerchief on fire. ��������� The performer  apologizes for his assistant's stupidity.  !>ut appeals to the company to bear witness that it was no fault of his. and  bringing forward  the plate,  with the  handkerchief still blazing, offers it to  the owner.   She, of course, declines to  take it, and the performer, remarking,  You  don't like it in  this    condition,  well, then, suppose I put it  in paper  for you, places tho plato on the rtooi.  telling the assistant to put it on tho  table, and runs off to    get the paper.  The attendant tries to lift the plate,  but   finds that lt   burns his    lingers.  However, after several attempts, getting the plate a Httlenearer at each, he  manages to place it on the tabic.   Thia  little by-play amuses tt.e audience, and  gives the performer the few  momenta  .which he requires for his preparations  behind   the   scenes.     Coming   forward  ,-with a sheet of clean white paper, he  wraps therein the still .blazing handkerchief, crushing it together so as to  extinguish the flames.    He offers tho  packet so made to the lady, who, believing  that it  contains  nothing  Dm  ashe3, declines to receive it.   When the  professor,   tearing     the  paper    apart,  pulls   out   the  handkerchief   perfectly  restored, while    the burnt    fragments  have vanished.    The effect  last mentioned is produced by the use of a double paper, pasted together round three  of its sides, and thus forming a i'i nil  of bag In the centre.   In this has th***  performer, during his momentary atj  sence from the stage, places the genuine handkerchief, foideil  so as to  occupy as little space as possible..   Th..  handkerchief,   therefore,   lies   bctwea  the two thicknesses of the paper, and  when the rolled up packet is torn op"-.i  from outside, may be removed without  disturbing the burnt fragments, which  Btlli remain Inside the paper.  THE ANIMATED CIGAR.  Among the least known hat tricks in  a good one known as the "animated"  or "dancing" cigar, wheiein an ordinary cigar is made to stand upright,  balance itself, bow to the right and  left, and so forth, on the crown of a  borrowed hat.  You begin by saying "I am about to  show you a curious experiment in animal magnetism, for tlie purpose of  which I must *.sE some gentleman to  oblige me with tbe loan of a hat.  Thank you. Now will some one else  oblige me with a cigar? I am not going to smoke it, I am merely going to  make it stand on end, and balance itself on the crown of this hat. Will  you assure the company, sir, that this  is a common cigar! I don't mean a  very common cigar, you know, but an  ordinary every day cig?.r, without any  mechanism or preparation about it.  You aro all satisfied that it is so?  Now then to make it stand on end."  Of course in a natural way, it would be  quite impossible to make a cigar do  anything of the sort, but with the aid  of a little animal magnetism, it is easy  enough.   I'll show you how it is done.  First I describe a magic circle on tha  crown ot the hat, the nearer the centre the better. Then I breathe gently  on the crown, and also on the cigar, sc  as to establish a mesmeric relation between them, and then I place the cigar  erect within tlie magic circle." (This is  done but the cigar falls) "The influence is hardly strong enough yet, but  it will soon develop itself. That is better, the cigar stands erect, you see  self-balanced, and you will find that  It is now under complete control.  Come! cigar, bow to the ladies." (The  cigar inclines gravely to the front.)  Now to the ladies on the right. Now  to the ladies on the left." (The cigar  bends each time in the direction indicated.) "It the conditions are favorable and the influence is strong enough  perhaps the cigar might be induced to  !avor us with a little dance.  "Do you think you could manage it  cigar? j  (Cigar bends thrice) "You see it bows  three times, wliich according to the  approved spiritualistic code means ye?.  Will the pianist oblige with a little  music? " The performer grasping the  hat by the brim,' moves it round and  round in horizontal circles, keeping  time to the music, the cigar swaying  with the motion. <  "You see tlie cigar keeps time in the  most obliging way, b'ut I feel that thc  power is beginning to fail. Will thc  owner of the cigar take it from the hat  himself, and see that* it really is his  own, and not a mechanical imitation?  You will find it siaokes all the better  sir. for having gone through this little  experience." The secret lies in the  :se of a very simple piece of apparatus;  This is a trick which is sure to bo  veil received by a juvenileautUtniC  The performer cois.tz forward with an  ordinary plate or salver, which he  hands for examination, and then places  on the table.  Ke next ' borrows a handkerchief.  Laying it flat over the plate, he lifts  it up liy rubbing the middle with his  fxr.zev and thumb, lotting the four cor-  ncis hang down. He then strokes  down the handkerchief with the other  hand, under the pretence of mesmeiiz-  ii.g .t, when a' shower ot burnt al-  r.-.cr.ds, chocolate creams, bon bons and  so forth pours down upon the plate.  A-rain ho strokes the handkerchief,  ittid number shower pours down; and  il.o p'.tue being by this time full, is  '.i.'ir.di.:'. iciuul to the company to prove  t'. a. !n tha quality of tho sweets, at any  vale, there is no deception. The secret  lies in tho use of a small bag, of cambric or fine calico shaped like an inverted latter V. The edges aro turned  in at Ihe mouth, nml through each hem  Is passed a ' straight piece of watch  ;;iring or whalebone, one a little longer  man the other. The natural tendency  of these is lo lie side by side, keeping  U:e month of the bag closed, but if  pressure be simultaneously applied to  bo.h endi ot lhe springs, lhe longar one  assumes the shape of a semicircle  thereby opening the bag.  Through Uio opposite end of the bag  is r-a&scd a pointed wire hook. The  bug is beforehand filled with nuts or  bon bons, and hung by the hook lo me  edge of the table on ilie side away from  the spectators. Though the bag is  mouth downwards the action of the  spring keeps it closed, and nothing can  fall out. When the operator standing  behind the table, draws the handker.  chief oyer the plate, he allows a portion of the hinder edge to hang over  the edge of the table nearest to himself.  When he picks up the handkerchiel  which he does with his finger and  thumb, he takes hold through the  handkerchief, of the upper part of tho  bag.  The bag is thus lifted up with the  handkerchief hut is concealed by the  folds of the latter hanging down  around it. The movement of the hand  in stroking down the handkerchief,  presses the springs and the bag opens,  again closing as soon as the pressure  is relaxed.  When all the contents have fallen,  the performer drops the handkerchief  bag and all on the table, while he advances to the audience with the results  of the trick, and on again picking ufr  the handkerchief lets fall the empty  bag behind some object on the table  or slips it into his pocket.  proached by a set of stone steps-which  are built out trom de scene proper, or,  in other ���������weria, the drop. These are  8&S.4 Is fciiown in theatrical parlance  As "practical" steps; that is, th'ey may  be ascended. The steps are incased by  side walls, and these walls are sur-*1  mounted by vases of flowers and handsome lamp posts. The steps lead ta  the doorway of the house; the door is  also "practical," nnd can be opened and  shut. The story runs that the house  was deserted for such a long time that  tbe steps were covered by a gigantic  spider's web, and the spectator is surprised to see this web, which extends  from post to post and to the side walla  of the steps.  TO PRODUCE EGGS  FROM   A   HANDKERCHIEF.  i rod of hard wood ������ix inch*--* lonn; anr*  ive-slxtcenths of an  inch thick,  with  i little cup or thimblo at oue tnd ami  a strong sharp needle an  inch and f;  t-uarter in length projecting rrom thi  other.     (See.Fls..   4.)   This  Is   ii'a.ed  aeedle downwards, in tho left sl'.eve of  the  performer,  and  after  the  hit  i;  borrowed   is allowed  to  nlip  down  li  to it.   During the pcTformer.-i first pretended endeavor to balance the cigai  on the crown of the hac. he applies tin  needle (with the left hand, whi^'h hold:-  the hat) to tho centre of the crown in  side, and presses the dcci'.Ic throuah It.  This, however, is done very gradually  eo  that only  the extreme point ahall  pass through ln the first instance.  As soon as he sees the point "morg"  from the surface he covers it .with the  lower end of the cigar, and thrusts i*  home within the body of the cigar. Th  hat may now be transferred from hand  to hand, or tilted in any direction, bat  the cigar will still remain upright, ir-  weight being counterbalanced by tha  of tha wooden rod within. CFia;. 5 j i'  the hat lie moved round an", round ir  circles, thn rod sways from aide to aid'  and con../iunirate.B a correspond in .*  movement to the cig/r. By inserting  tht* middlo finger of the hand which  ho!d3 the hat Into the thimble at thr  lower end of tho rod, the cigar may b*  made to incline in any given directioi.  ancl so to how to thc company and so  forth. When the owner of tbe "-ig.-.r  puts forth hia hand to take it back, the*  performer at tho dime moment withdraws the needle from below, and let?  the little rod again drop into his sleeve  when both cFgar ana hat will of course  stand any amount ef examination.  Obtain a large turkey-red lianiii er-  chief, and from the top suspend 'roni  ���������Jie centre of the topmost edge  i blown egg attached to a piece o������  black thread or silk, allowing it to  hang about halt way down.  Place the egg in ono corner, folding  it therein, and tako the corner with  the concealed egg in your left hand,  and the opposite top corner in youi  right, and show the handkerchief to  your audience, shaking it aud showing  it empty.  Now borrow a tall hat, and placing  it on the table inform your audience  that you will show them a now way to  lay eggs.  Holding the handkerchief across  vour chest, release the egg, which falls  down at the back, being suspended bj  the thread, nip the centre.with youi  teeth just where the thread is attached to the edge of handkerchief and  iraw the two corners backward.  Now hold the two top corners together with your right hand, and the  bottom coiners with your left and holu.  ing the handkerchief well up, you allow your right to drop just over the  hat, gently shaking the handkerchief,  and the egg will fall into the.hat, tht  audience not being able to see that it  is attached to the handkerchief by a  thread. While the egg is in the hat,  ibow the two sides of the handkerchief  empty, and taking the two top corners  allow it to hang down in front of the  hat, and lifting it up again suddeu'.y  of course it brings the egg with it.  This can be repeated any number of  Rmes until"-tlte-ELudience^imagine-the"7  hat to be nearly full of eggs; then folding the handkerchief carelessly together, taking care to cover the suspended egg, and place it on your table.  Take up the hat, and telling the audience you will make them a present of  '.he eggs, pretend to throw, the contents  jefore them when they will naturally  iuck their heads, expecting a showe*- of  3ggs; but to their surprise the fggs  will appear to have vanished. This i3  l good illusion if performed quickly  and neatly,, but you must take car*  not to allow the concealed egg to be  seen, except when in the act of falling  into the hat.  The diagram Fig. 3 will give you a  correct Idea of the method of preparing'  the handkerchief.  In the centre o������ this gigantic web ig  seen a spider's body with "a womar.'i  head. The steps leading to tho door-  ���������way of the house are open, and a person starts to descend, but slops on seeing the spider, and retreats after taking three or four steps down the  ing three or four steps down hei  stairs. This adds greatly to the illusion, as it looks as if lt could not bo  Hfoduced by a mirror. You can sees  both above and below the head, and  the steps may be seen at any angle you  choose. The puzzling part of the trick  is the question of the whereabouts of  the lady's body.  Reference to our engravings will give  the secret of the trick. The mirror lies  at an angle of 45 degrees and runs from  the base of the lower steps: The mirror extends the full width of the sleps.

When Dean Swift wrote his famous  tale of "Gulliver's Travels" he did not  realize   how   closely    he   anticipated  nodern  scientific  methods.

Tho light obtained  ' from the   cremation of this   valuable  material in Shoreditch is that ot 7,000  eight-candle power Incandescent lamps  ', and   sixty    arc    lights.

W.iBto is unknown  in Paris.  You begin by borrowing four marked half dollars, or quarter pieces, and a  eilk or cambrle handKercliief. You  then request the assistance of a ver>  strong man, this glve3 an opportunity  for a little fun in the* selection.     ���������  Having at last found a volunteer tc  your liking, you seat him on a chair  facing the company. Spreading the  handkerchief on your left palm, and  placing the four coins upon It, yon.  close your hand upon them through  the handkerchief,-and hand them to  him, requesting him to hold them firm,  ly. Then, as If suddenly recollecting  yourself, you say, "Pardon me, I have  omitted c_ie little detail which is rather important. Oblige me with the  handkerchief again ior one moment ir  vou'please. I ought to have shown the  company that there are no holes In lt."  (The last sentence should not be pronounced until you have gained possession of the handkerchief, as the company might possibly declare themselves  satisfied of the fact without examination, which would not answor your  purpose.) The handkerchief being returned to you, you spread it out to  show that it is free from holes, coming among the audience to do so, and  appearing to lay great utress upon  the fact. Again spreading it over your  left hand, you count the coins one by-  one upon it; and giving a glance  around at the company, you say, as  you quickly return to your 'platform,  "You have all seen that the four coins  are' fairly wrapped iu the handkerchief," or make any other remark in  order to draw the general attention, as  a sharp, quick remark almost always,  will, to your face and away from your,  hands. At that same moment you  move the -left thumb over the face of  the coins, thereby covering them witn  a fold of the handkerchief, and seize  them, through the fold thus made between the thumb and fingers of tho  right hand, as indicated in Fig 1, immediately ���������withdrawing the leet hand.  The coins will now be held in the right  hand, the handkerchief hanging down  loosely around them. To any one who  has not watched your movement with  more than ordinary vigilance, it will  appear that the coins are within and *���������  under the handkerchief, thc ugh they  are, in reality, wrapped in an extended  fold. Giving them a twist around in  the Tiandkerchief, you hand it to tho  person assisting you, asking him to  say whether the money is still there,  to which ho naturally, replies in the affirmative. You then tell him to grasp  the handkerchief with both hands  three or four inches below the coins,  and to hold as tightly as he possibly  can.  Placing your wand under your right  arm, and, taking holf of the coin  (through the handkerchief) with both  hands, tho ri_.ht hand undermost, you  begin to pull against him, making a  show���������of pulling with great force, and  remarking that you are very glad it is  not your handkerchief, that you should  not have thought he was so st.jng, etc.  Meanwhile, and .while the company  aro enjoying the discomfiture of thu  owner of the handkerchief, you untwist  the latter, and secretly got the money  out of the fold into your right hand,  and palm it therein. ��������� Give one last  pull with your left hand, and 'let go  smartly, observing that you fear you  must give it up, and own yourself con- .  quered. Take your want* 'n your'right  hand; this v'll make it ..oem natural  tor you to keep that hand closed, and  will materially aid in concealing ".a  fact that tlio money is therein.'  Your antagonist, or the spectators  for him, will by this time hnve discovered that the money has vanished; but  you pretend to be uncor_;_:ious of the  fact, and request him to give it back  that you may return it to its owners.  He naturally declares that he has not  got it. With all tha seriousness that  you can command, you insist that he  lias it, and that he must restore it. On  his continued denial you suggest that  he should search his pockets, which  you tap, one after the other, with your  wand, each giving a metallic sound as  if containing money; but the coins are"  Btlll not to be found. At last, after all  his pockets have been tried in vain,  you, as It upon a sudden thought,-tap  the leg ot his trousers, the metallic  chink stil following every tap of the  wand till you havae nearly reached thia  teet, when you exclaim, "Yes, tliere it  Is. Will you have the kindness to'put  Vour-foot-'on���������that-clialr-?-'-'��������� He-does_  so, and quickly transferring your wand  to tfc-3 left hand, with the'fingers ol  your right you turn up the edge of hia  trousers, giving at the .same, time a  ���������light shake, when the four coins arc  eeen to faTl out, to the great surprise  of the victim.  This effect is produced as follows:  Tho coins being In your right hand,  pou introduce them with the second,  Jiird, and fourth fingers under the edge  jf the trouser; then, with the first,linger and thumb which, are left outside,  Yoxi nip them through the e-loth, and  aold them an instant till you have  withdrawn the. remaining lingers, whuD  with a slight shake you let them fall.

The ot'.ior mode Is to use merely tht  ordinary wand, . allowing the enc  which you hold to chink against the  money held in the same hand.  With a little pr&Hicc. the effect is  equally deceptive a. with the special  wand.  experiment he Ib about to, perform, th������*  coin is never removed from tlieir.sight,  and he accordingly places it.

He then goes to fetch an orange, ancl  takes the opportunity of slipping the  marked coin (No. 3) into the vacant.  6ne[ He brings forward this orange  publicly and places it on his table at  his right hand. (The other orange he.  has meanwhile placed under his vest  on the right side, ready for palming  at a moment's notice.) He then saya,  "I think, by the way, it would bo aft  well to have two oranges. Can any  gentleman oblige me with one?" Nd  one responding, he looks about * him  and stepping up to one of his audience*,  pretends to take from his hair, hat, or  handkerchief this second orange  (which contains, it will be remembered,  coin No. 1), and places it on the left  hand side of the table.  He now (standing* behind his'table)  asks 'into whicli 'orange, thc right or  the left, he shall pass the coin. -As tlie*  right of the audience is his left, he is  at liberty to interpret the answer in  which ever way he thinks proper,.and  he does so in such manner as to designate the orange containing the non-  marked coin, No. 1. Thus, if the audience say "the left," he answers, "On  my left? very good!" If they choose  the right, he says, "On your right! very  good!" Not one person In a thousand  will, detect the equivoque.  Taking up coin No. 2 frpm the table,  and holding it in his left hand, he pre- .  tends to take it in his right, and  thence to pass it intr) the orange, meanwhile dropping it from his left hand,  behind a book on the table or Into his  pocket. Showing his hands empty, he  cuts open the orange, ancl (exhibits  coin No. 1 therein contained. Before  giving the audience time to examine it  for the mark, he hears or pretends to  hear, a mur.muramong them to the effect that that was not the orange  chosen. "Pardon me," ho says, "somo  of you seem to think that I had a special reason for preparing this partlcu-������  iar orange. I gave you "absolute liberty to choose which you liked, and I  anderstood you to say that you chose  this one. However, in order to satisfy  every one, I will repeat the trick with  the other orange. Taking up the second orange, he thrusts the knife  through it, in the slit already made and  gives tho knife thus loaded to some}*  one to hold. Then, standing at some  distance from, it.he takes.up coin No.  1, and, getting rid of it-by a pass ho  makes a motion as' ot throwing it towards the orange. He now requests*  the person holding-tho orange himself  'to cut it open; when the genuine coin  No. 3, is found therein, and duly identified.    -  The finding of the second orange In  tho possession of the company may, if  preferred, be omitted and both oranges-  i*? -2.  be brought forward openly"in~the~firflt"-  instance.  Occasionally a refractory spectator  may insist upon the wrong orange (i.e.,  that containing the genuine coin) being cut open first. ' -   "  As you haye offered the audience the  choice, you cannot well resist this; but.  it makes very little difference. In accordance with the general desire, you.  :ut open the orange, and show the coin  (No. 3) drawing particular attention to-  the mark.  It's identity being fully established,  pou offer, for the general satisfaction,  to pass the same coin into ,the_ second .  orange. Being satisfied that It was the  genuine coin in the first case, the audience -will the more readily believe  that it is so in the second; but ln this  case you should cut open the second  orange yourself, as it will bo necessary  to again substitute the genuine coin  before you hand it to be examined.

But   many   years   ago  there  were no  such   things  as  these queer tluee handled affairs, and  the following story tells how they first  happened to be made:  Once upon a time centuries before us,  theie lived a great -and powerful king,  who was extremely fond' of hunting.  He was one day in a forest pursuing u  stag, but it was so Hoot and clever that  it eluded him and his band of followers, and led them entirely out of their  way. After wandering about ln a  hopelots faMiiun they linally came upon  a little hut, nud tlie king himself dismounted and rapped smartly upon the  door.  A young girl answered his knock, and  soon showed tlie men the right path.  The king was about to go, when he saw  a woll near the house, and nt the sight  of the clear water immediately felt  thirsty, and, going back, asked the girl  ���������for a drink. AVlthout hesitation sho  went into the house and came out with  an eai then Jug filled with the well  water. But, Instead of offering hia  royal majesty the !i."������idle, as most people would do, she he.*a that herself, and  handed him tlie cup the wrong way.  The king said nothing, thanked tho  Girl, and -he and Ills band soon found  their way out of the wood.  But when he reached his .palace he  determined to reward the girl for giving him the water and at the same timo  to teach her a lesson in politeness.  Sending to his jeweler, he bade him  make a silver cup. wilh two handles,  and deliver it to the young girl, without a word as to whence it came.  Perhaps a month after this the king  again 'hunted In that same forest,  sought the-hut and asked the girl for  another drink of water.  This time she entered tho house and  ���������came out with a beautiful silver cup,  full of the sparkling water. "Now,"  thought the king, "she has certainly  learned a lesson." But never was he  more mistaken, *for the poor, ignorant  girl took a handle in each hand, and  for the second lime offered her liege  lord nothing save the side of the cup.  The king rode away deeply perplexed.  He resolved to teach the" girl the polite  way to hand a cup without directly rebuking her, and many were tho hours  ihe spent In cudgelling his brains for  some way in which to do it. At last a  bright idea struck him. and he sent for  lhis jeweler a second time. "Make me,"  said he to the man,'"a silver cup, heavily chased, and with my royal crest,  and put three handles on It." The Jeweler, much surprised���������for remember, no  such thing had ever been heard of up  to ��������� this time���������did as he was told, and  ' soon the mug vjas finished. As before,  the king had it privately sent to the  'girl who lived In the little but.  One day not long after this for the  third time he rode into that forest, and,  taking the now well-known path, soon  reached the cottage. Dismounting, he  knocked at the door and asked "humbly  for a drink of clear water.  The girl immediately came,out with  the beautiful   three-handled'cup,  and,  " taking two of the handles in her hands,  she offered him the third.  So the king rode away well pleased  with his strategy and, reaching home,  ordered three-handled cups to be .made  ln .every sort of ware, and they became, so popular that we now have  them in all our shops and stores.  f  I -V  i'i-%.  la*  The Lament of the Adult.

It is probably tho nicest  kind of a story, and the nicest kind of  a play, and if we wero only fourteen  in.stead of forty, or fifteen instead o������  fifty, we should thoroughly enjoy them  both. Nothing is better calculated to  make us regret our lost youth than fiction and tlio drama as they exist today.

'"I doubt It much, Sir Walter," repliud  Elizabeth, holding it was impossible to  weigh smoke, and mayhap scenting a  joke, "and I will wager you twenty  gold angels .that you do not solve mv  doubt."  Gallantly accepting the wager, r,a-  Ibigh .filled 'his pipe with a weighed  quantity of tobacco, smoked it out, an.l  then, weighing the resultant ashes, announced the weight he had s*t������oked  away.  > "Your Majesty cannot deny that the  difference has disappeared in smoke."  "Truly, I .cannot," answered the  Queen.

Man as an Incarnation.  PEOPLE of a materialistic frame of  mind, to whom man is but a machine, says an editorial writer in  the "Hospital," are apt to put on one  side all that cannot be -weighed and  measured as not only inexplicable or  unthinkable, but as quite beyond the  range of reasonable discussion. Such  people are advised to attend a meetins  of the Society for Psychical Research  for "a change of scene." What they  will see is thus described:  "There they will find people, quite as  convinced as they are of their own  sanity, and quite as content as they  can possibly be with the correctness of  their own interpretation of things, asserting the most astounding propositions, without turning a hair. To those  wtlio are so self-centered as to think  that there is something cranky about  all who do not see as they do, lt is *a  wholesome awakening to find good,  solid, comfortable, and respectable people believing in telepathy as a thing  indisputable, and holding th.it man, as  we see _iim engaged in his various  more or less ignoble pursuits, in the  city and elsewhere, is but the incarnation of one little bit of himself as he  exists Jn an intangible and ethereal  form. At the last meeting of the Psychical Research Society. Dr. Oliver  Lodge, F.R.S., said that he did not hold  that the whole of any one of us was Incarnated in their terrestrial bodies;  certainly not in childhood; more, but  pertiaps not so very much more, in  adult Jife. W.hat was .manifest was  only a definite portion of a much larger  wihole. What the rest was doing during the years spent 'Here he did not  know. Perhaps it was asleep; but  probably, he said, it was not entirely  asleep with jnen of genius, nor perhaps  was lt all -completely" inactive with  people called mediums. Now to the  modern materialist all this is absolute  'rot.' Vet Dr. Lodge is not exactly a  man to pooh-pooh. Indeed, may not  the immaterialists retort that this is a  Christian country 'and that our very  religion teaches us not to weigh and  measure too exactly? Again, Roentgen,  Tesla, and 'Marconi have of late been  giving many shocks to old ideas. At  any rate, this Is clear, that we must  not too rigidly put outside the bounds  of sanity belief in the unthinkable. It  Is a queer world, and -Which half of it  is sane appears still undecided."

Musical  boxes and orchestrions may yet ibe usrtd  In hospital-wards, and the shops In  which sheet music and musical instruments are now dispensed are likely to  be the drug stores of the future. r.-it-  ent music Is a possible successor of  patent medicine, and we may yet take  a five-minute dose of "Lanigun's Ball"  adagio, or a seven-minute-and-a-'nalf  dose of Mendelssohn's "Songs Without  Words" andante, for our neuritis or  necrosis. Medical music and medical  science will be one, and the scalpel will  be supplanted by the mandolin, and the  clinical thermometer Jjy the piccolo.  A CORRESPONDENT writing from  London under date of February  - 13 says: "One queer phase of the  present smallpox scare is the smallpox  Insurance department opened' at  Lloyd's. The current rates are 21-2  per cent, if recently vaccinated, and  31-3 If not vaccinated since infancy.  The insurance becomes due on the doctor's certificate that the policy-holder  has smallpox." He adds: "After jogging along comfortably with smallpox  ln its midst for six months, London is'  now beginning to get worried, and a  large contributing cause of that worry  Is that if the plague spreads much  more it is going to frighten away the  profitable American cousin, who is expected to come over in unprecedented  shoals for tbe coronation season and  scatter dollars right and left. .Trouble  began away back In August, and has  been slowly growing, ofi! and on, ever  since, until the average lately has been  about 50 new cases a day. One day  last week it-ran up .to. S2. _ Thero. were  1S3 new cases in September, 309 in October, 473 ln November, SO-i in December and 1,293 in January. Tet, according to previous experience, smallpox  reaches Its height in "London from  January to May. Consequently it would  be well for readers planning a trip to  see King Edward's crown put on to  watch the smallpox returns from London for the next four or five weeks. At  present the plague can be said to be  well under control, but a big sudden  Increase would tax London's resources  to the utmost and might cause a panic."  Little Mothers in Japan.    *-  Although the Empire of Japan Is said  to be a "paradise of children," where  they,are allowed rto do very much as  they please, and where they seldom.

A READER of "Marmaduke's" letters in London "Truth" has sent  him the following:  "Whilst turning over some old books  In my library last week I stumbled up-  _on^_.the__followlng3_pnrasi'aph,jn_the-  'Rural World" of 1SC3. -As there is an  epidemic of smallpox in London it has  occurred to me to send this to you, for  some of your medical readers may be  cither able to prove or disprove the  statements lt contains:  "'Onions and Epidemics. ��������� In~ the  spring of 1843 I was in charge of one  hundred men on shipboard, with the  cholera among the men. "We had onions, which a number of the men ata  freely. Those who did so were soon  attacked, and nearly all died. As soon  as I made this discovery their use was  forbidden. After mature deliberation  I came to the conclusion that onions  should never be eaten during the prevalence of epidemics, for the reason  that they absorb the virus, and communicate the disease, and that the pro-"  per use for them is sliced and placed  In the sick-room, and replaced with  fresh ones every few hours. . . . After maintaining the foregoing opinion  for eighteen years. I have found tho  following well attested: Onions placed  In the room where there is smallpox  will blister and decompose with great  rapidity: not only so. but will prevent  the spread ot the disease. I think that  us a disinfectant they have no equal if  properly used. If needed, the foregoing  (which I have greatly.abbrevlated) can  be attested on oath.' "  It Is a curious echo of a bygone preventive, and lt Is given here without  much hope that the suggestion can be  valuable.  The Cockade.  THE adoption of the cockade by  President Roosevelt for his coachman and footmen has resuscitated the old question : Whose servants are entitled to.wear a cockade?  As a matter of fact, there is no right  nor title to the cockade, but usage has,  ln England, where the cockade is  more common than in any other country, confined lt to the servants of the  royal household, of the diplomatic  corps, of officers of tho Army and  Navy���������including the militia and volunteers���������and to servants of Justices  and deputy lieutenants of counties.  According to this unwritten law of  custom, neither peers nor other persons of title, except they be royal, can  confer the cockade on their servants  unless they themselves hold ono of the  commissions already named. And  -here comes a strange anomaly: If-they  occupy a Government position, they  can wear a cockade, although their  servants cannot.  "Cockade." or, rather, the French  equivalent of it, made its first appearance in the phrase "bonnet a la co-  quarde" of Rabelais. About sixty  years after Rabolais's death, Randle  Cotgrave, author of the first Anglo-  French dictionary, defined "coquarde,"  now "cocarde," as "a Spanish cappe  or fashion of bonnet, used by the most  substantial men of yore���������also any  bonnet or cappe worn proudly or  peartly on the side." But the most  plausible origin given of the cockade  of to-day is that it wa.s derived from  tbe tuft of cock's plumes worn by the  Croatian soldiers, who in the seventeenth century served under France,  and Introduced the cravat to the world  of fashion. At any rate, in 1CSS, men  ambitious to become soldiers of France  received cockades of paper; hence the  expression, "prendrel a cocarde," meaning "to enlist." Cockades appear to  have fallen into innocuous desuetude,  so far as France was concerned, until  the Revolution, when the "cocarde  tricolor" must have become obligatory,  for, just before the fall ot Robespierre,  arrests wero made for not wearing lt.  The black cockade, now worn in  England, was originally the distinctive  badge of the House of Hanover, as the  white cockade was that of the House  of Stuart. It is said white was  adopted by the adherents of the  Stuarts because it was the emblem  of the kings of France, who supported  the Stuarts against the Hanoverians.  The cockade worn by servants of the  British royal household is a large  half-disk which projects above the hat.  Servants of naval officers wear a disk  not projecting above the hat; those of  army officers and other persons considering themselves entitled to carry  cockades are fan-shaped, with a button, and they reach above , the hat.  The cockades of the servants ot diplomats are in the colors of the country their masters represent, and many  noble houses on the continent of Europe .make their "servants wear cockades matching their livery ln color.  When, many years ago, the war as to  whose servants were entitled to a  cockade was raging in England, the  facts discovered were that no orders  regulating their use were known "to  exist, but it was recorded that servants of ofllcers of the London City  Llght Horse, a volunteer regiment, did  not wear them. The conclusion arrived at was' that the' cockade was  originally purely a military distinction; that" the reason it was worn by  servants of field officers was that, in  former days, these * servants had  served in the army, that it was later  adopted by servants who had never  been in the army, and afterward by  servants of naval officers.  There being no set rule in any country from which we have been in the  habit "of adopting social customs, it  remains for us to follow the law that  usage and good form has ��������� laid down.  - They have prescribed that the servants of ambassadors and foreign ministers of the United States abroad  shall wear cockades, like the servants  of foreign diplomats accredited to this  country, the cockades of the coach-,  man and footman giving the carriages  a certain right of way. Ambassadors  and ministers are entitled to the cockade after they have retired from the  diplomatic service. But consuls are  not members' of the diplomatic service; they are' merely commercial  -agents.=i-Neither->our-consuls���������abroad  nor consular representatives to this  country have the right to tho cockade, as consuls." Its adoption by an  American citizen who represented a  foreign country as. consular agent in  this city was authorized neither by  usage nor good-taster That his family should continue to use lt after his  'death is ridiculous vulgarity. Servants of officers of tlie'United States  army and navy, both regular and volunteer, are also entitled to wear the  cockade.���������Town Topics.
