' Thev,. hold oflice to 5th  August, 1901. ., On_,that dato the Iirsi  annual meeting was held, when the present Board of Directoi s wei e elected and  the, appended live-laws, adopted. - The  work .of tlie(provisional boaid was so well  e.scculed that it had only to be followed'to  bring- matters, to the present satisfactory  stage of advancement., its building plans  were only enlarged, gi\ ing larger, claini  in proportion upon ' Government aid, and  ils negotiations, with the Victonan Order  of* Nurses, which .subscribed Si500, con  dilional upon naming the building. "The  Queen Victoria Hospital" 'and having the  appointment of .muses and their supervision in its own chaige solely, "< were  endorsed as thoioughly satisfactory, ft*;  building lund- subscription" lists were, well  pationised thioughout the city and district  and have been a substantial support to  this Board, who expects their complete  payment with entire confidence a.s only a  matter of time and attention. The hospital  site was also a mailer remaining to this  Board to _ close and thc Society now  possess title to all ol Block 57, with exception of its nortli east corner exchanged  with the city ��������� CJi-pora'. oi by deed I'or  rights of possession to the alley through  the entiie properly. This Board gavo  dilligent attention to all plans and contracts submitted and drawn and protected  their execution by substantial local bonds.  -Its���������committees-did���������faithful���������work~a.id-it-  desires to express a generous approval of  its architect and various contractors. In  what it ha"s underlaken this Board has  had hearty and general/upport and takes  this opponunity of expressing .its ..warm  thanks to-'the Provincial Government,  Victorian Order of Nurses," Lord Slralli-  cona, and to, the people'of this city and  district for their generous financial assistance and'moral support. It also conveys  to the Ladies Auxiliary Society ils hearty  appreciation of tlie invaluable services and  aid rendered and calls attention to the  report herewith submitted as'one of much  merit and a splendid precedent. Thanks  are tendered Her Excellency, Lady Minto,  Patron, and Miss Macleod, Superintendent  of the Victorian Order of Nuises, for  their kind work and interest on beliali of  this society; to the City Council for aid to  Corner Stone Celebration and free meeting  room; to the C. 1\* R, for special favors  received ; to the local ,press for kind  notices; aud lo the donors of services and  gifts to the Society. The Board .also  wishes to express its thanks lo the orders  and organizations who have volunteered  to furnish private and public wards and.to  I James W. Cross, Esq., M.D., for offer of  a modern operating table.' ;  f WORK AND POLICY.  Thc work and policy of this Board of  Directors lias been" almost entirely constructive and it hopes its,, efforts and plans  will be found satisfactory and well laid.  It has .completed a most, substantial and  well designed building capable of accommodating twenty patients well equipped  with hot water, heating/isolated plumbing,  septic tank, sewage connection, and other  necessary modern improvements.'' In  erecting .and equipping such a large  structure Ihe Board carefully weighed the  question of ultimate cost and taking profit  by example avoided expensive additions  and patch-work improvements by having  at once a building capable ol meeting all  demands upon its space should even the  city and district continue to grow in lire  hopeful manner of which they are giving  present signs. In the matter of lurnishimr,  however, the Board has adopteJ another  and diflerent line ot conduct, thinking- il  wise to meet the conditions as they  occurred, it being possible to procure  ordinary articles required, at home, upon  short notice. What cannot be had at  home  has   been   ordered   abroad   for   a  laigor use lhan is al first expected and  the Boaid lakes pleasure in announcing  thai the Queen Victoria Hospital is sufficiently furnished lo be icady for immediate  if limited use.  ������������������ HIS I Kit.

The Luildiii!* was visited at ils inception  by Fler I'weilencv, Lady Minto, whose  kindness 111 laving the corner-.stone has  been the means of giving it notice tlnough-  oul Canada and in Gieal Britain. When  ccin.ileied it was inspected by Miss Mac-  le-d, Suiiciiniendent ot the Victorian  Older ol Nuises; Dr. F.igan, Provincial  Health Ollicer; and Hon. XV. C.

Uefoic concluding this report attention  is asked for a moment to the attached  finar..-ial statement, which shows a bank  advance ot $2000. The Provincial Government airangemcnt with the Provisional  Board was "dollar for dollar" that laised  bv the soc.ely. The scheme having  sjio-.vnin scope however and the Societv  having laised i^s sh.ue application has  been made I'or a further giant covering  th.* bank loan. As the building has been  inspected and approved by a prominent  member ol the Government the Board has  hopes that the application will be favorably  considered. A kind finger is also pointed  lo lhe local subscriptions remaining unpaid  believing that to point to it is enough as  the'liabilities are'only to be met ihereby'if  debt is 10 be avoided. ���������  1-LRT!1I:'r IMPROM.MI.Nrs7.- -  5 'Though much - has been done there is  mucli still to be' done."

At the fust annual meeting ofthe Board  ol Directors the Society was duly constituted to hold oflice I'or one year.  At the first regular meeting of the  Auxiliary, it was decided that a delegation  visit the Lardeau district, to collect funds  lor the Hospital, and the Ladies of the  Society tlike this opportunity of express  ing lheir thanks to Mr. Pool for his  liberality in defraying all' the expenses ol"  the delegation.

Sad Drowning Accident.  .The community was staitied "last  Tuesday afternoon by the announce  ment that Elsie, second daughter of  Mr. ancl Mrs. H. Cook, had been  drowned in the Columbia river. It  appears that a number of children  were playing down at the old steam  boat landing when suddenly Elsie  slipped and fell into the water. Jean  Hyatt, one of her playmates, made a  plucky attempt to rescue Elsie and in  doing so she lost her balance and also  fell into the river. Elsie was caught  in an eddy and duiwn right under  water almost immediately, but Jean  was more fortunate, being swept  towards the bank where she succeeded  in catching some brush. John Sa'mson  who was working near by, saw the  accident and hastened to the spot in  time to rescue Jean. Every effort  was made to recover the body of the  unfortunate child but without success.  Elsie was about 9 years of .ige, a  loving child and a favorite among all  her playmates. The Herald and the  community at large extend deepest  sympathy to Mr. and Mrs. Cook in  their sad1 bereavement.      - * -  Rifle Association Notes.'

Ladner made several  good 3tiggi'stions legarding the future  work of the directors, chief among  which was the beautifying of the  grounds around-tbe hospital-bv-plant-  ing shade trees. He suggested that an  appeal be made to the city council to  assist in the work and that each citizen give three days' labor towards  clearing up hospital grounds and  planting shade trees. This should be  done befoie the month of October.  Mr. Ladner was of the opinion that  nil the tiees required conld be had  from the Government farm at Agassiz.  The teverend gentleman explained to  the meeting that he was a crank on  the subject of tree planting on the  streets. He pointed to Kamloops  and told how a number of years ago  lit1 bad induced some of th'e citizens  there to go in for it nnd the result wai.  that the streets in that city had been  beautified. He would like to see the  the same idea carried ont here, and  suggested the inauguration of Arbor  Day for this purpose.  The ideas of Mr. Ladner are certainly  worthy of consideration and tree  planting on streets would do much  towards beautifying our city and the  Uickald hopes to.see these suggestions  acted upon.

I no sense. She is always telling  fT\\ people that I am "out" when 1  A A ttm "in," and "in" when 1 have  ^"^ told her that I am "out." That  V was   what   made    the    trouble  about the bazar.  1 was reckoning up the butcher's  book when she came bustling into tho  room. I have to be careful about the  books, because father does not get so  much money for his tales as they are  worth. lie Is Mr. Marchant, the great  author. My name Is Molly, ana I have  kept house tor him and the boys ever  since I was a child. Now I am tour-  teen.  "What have you come bothering  hbout 'now,' Jane'.'" I asked. The bill  was flve shillings more than the month  before, so I'was rather cross.  "Mrs. Cattley to see you, miss."  "Of course you told her I was out?"  Jane jerked her thumb In the direction of the door, and. I heard a rustle  outside. Mrs. Cattley Is the sort of  woman that always wears crackling  eklrts.  "No," she called, in a loud voice.  "Jane told ma that you were in."  I gave Jane such a look! Then I  slipped the butcher's book under something, and got up with my best smile.  "Jane generally does the wrong  thing," I explained. "I was so afraid  that she had sent you away. Do sit  down."  ' "Umph!" she said. Of course J knew  that she did not believe me, and she  knew that I knew.  "Bring some tea, please," I told Jane.  She walked out, grinning all over hei  face, and I made up my mind to speak  to* her wlienllrs. Cattley was gone.  "Put your cap straight before you come  In again." She shut-the 'door;with a  "bang. "You've no idea what a trial  servants are."  "I was keeping house before you  were born." She shut her mouth with  a snap.  "Long before," I agreed. She turned  red, and I looked innocent. "So, ol  course, you know exactly how to manage them." She can never get a servant to stop.  "Things were very different when T  was a girl." I hoped that she was different in those days; but I did not tell  her so. I have a good deal of tact,  father says.  "You never had any trouble with servants,;! suppose?" (I have heard that  they did'not keep any.)  "None whatever." She put up her  eyeglasses and stared at me as ifshe  wanted to; be contradicted. Fortunately, Jane knocked at the door.'  "Come in," I called; but she only  opened it a little way and beckoned.  "We ain't got no loaf sugar," she  whispered.   Her'whisper is rather loud.  "Hush!"     I-"shut   the   door   hastily.  "You must go to Scales' for a pound."  She   shuffled   from  one' foot   to   the  : other.   She always does that when she  is uneasy in her mind.  " 'E said as "e wouldn't let us 'ave  nothink more till we settled for wot  we'd 'ad." It was only a few little  things; but he is a surly man.  "Then go to the new shop round the  corner.    He doesn't know us, but "  " 'E'il   let   us   'ave   it,"   said   Jane,  promptly; and off she went.  . "I beg your pardon for leaving you,"  I apologized, when  I returned^    "Jane  requires so much telling."  "I should not keep her a month."  ; "I am sure you would not," 1 agreed.  , Airs. Cattley pursed her lips and  looked at me very hard. ' Then she  sighed, as if she thought me too bad  for words.  ���������"X came to see you about the bazar,"  Bhe^afd;   "but  perhaps  I  had  better  _ speak to your father."  "Oh, no!" I said, hastily. "You can  tell me." Anybody can persuade father into anything.  "The rector insisted upon my being  on the committee." She seemed yery  proud about it. "They have unanimously elected me collector."  "Oh!" 1 made up my mind not to  Biv-a anything.  "I have come to see what you will  subscribe."  "I wiii ask father," I promised. Of  course'I did not mean to do anything  of~tfte"3brt!Ji~~  "Why don't you make something  yourself," she said, unpleasantly, "instead of troubling poor Mr. Marchant?  He must, have expenses enough already."  "If  yoa   .think ;..���������. that,"   I  suggested,  "there is no need to trouble him."  "I do not ask my husband for money  when���������er "  "I am sure you don't." I am afraid  I smiled a little. Everyone knows that  be has to ask her!  She looked as  if she were going to  fly at me;  but she changed  her mind  and pretended not to understand.  "I   suppose   you: can     make   fancy  things?   Whep I was your age "  "I hute making fancy things,"  I Interrupted.    [ like making them really;  but they cost such a lot for material.  "I presume  you  can sew?"  she en-  Quired sarcastically.  "I never do sewing."    I do nearly all  :the mending of the house really;  but  It wasn't likely I, was going to tell her.  "I am  afraid  that the wish is lacking." she ������ild severely.    "Of course, if  you choose to be the only persons who  do not give anything, you must please  yourselves.   At the same time I think  It my duty  to warn  you  that people  wilt talk."  "It doesn't matter."  "Perhaps not"���������3he sniffed���������"to you.  If I were In your place I should study  my poor father."  I should have said something rude if  I had answered her, so I held my  tongue.) I don't suppose -I manage very  well, but I do study father. I promised  mother that I would, the last thing of  all.  "There are people enough already,"  ���������he went on, "who speak disparagingly  of hirn. because he is an author."  ���������     I laughed.   It is called Ironical, I believe, the vvay that I did It.  "Your friends are jealous, because  they have not the brains to write," 1  said. Father has often told me that  this is the reason that people run down  authors.  "My friends are not people who are  In the habit of���������er "  " 'Ere's the tea. miss," said Jane,  coming in suddenly. "An' the loaf sugar.    An"   the grocer says will  yer  be  eure an' "  "That will do. Jane. Put ��������� It here,  please.     How   many   lumps   will   you  have, Mrs. Cattley?" Jane was beginning again, but I frowned at her so  that she went. "Jane Is always forgetting to tell me what things have got  low." *  "Ah!" said Mrs. Cattley. "You can't  expect a girl to think of everything!"  Of course she meant that' we were always running short; but I pretended  not to understand.  "Father has been very successful  with his tales lately," I said in a confidential way. "He looks for the postman to come eve.ry evenlcjf regularly."  He says he only goes Into the drawing-  room to pull down the Winds. "To  bring a cheque, you know." Unfortunately, It doesn't often come.  "They don't pay very well, I sup.  pose?"  'Mt depends upon the quality. Father  gets a very high rate, of course."  "Then no doubt he will be pleased lo  subscribe handsomely, If I ask him."  She looked very determined.  I did not know what to do. Fathci  cannot bear people to think we are  poor; and when he Is asked to give he  never.-refuses; I felt sure he would  subscribe a sovereign; and the tradesmen were worrying me so about the  books.  "You need not'trouble," I told her. "3  will get something, or make it." 1  meant to make something���������an excuse!  "Thank you, dear." She was quite  polite.   "Any little thing will do."  "Will it?" I thought at once of some  small scarves In Tape and Drape's.  They were one and eleven-throe.  "So long as it is suitable to your  father's position, of course. People  naturally expect that everyone will  give according to his means.;.I mention these things because you are so  young, my dear."    She got up.  "It is very .thoughtful of you. Thank  you so much.: Must you really go?"  She said she must. So we embraced  one another, and she Went. When ]  embrace Mrs. Cattley, vve put our  cheeks alongside and a little way off,  and kiss the air. It is the proper way  ���������with her!  "I won't give her a thing," I said to  myself, as soon as .she had gone. "The  horrible, spiteful old creature!"  I said the same thing to Mrs. Serplls,  the new curate's wife, when she called  next day. They are no better off than  we are;'but she is a dear. "I shall say  I forgot," I told her; but she shook her  head.  "You don't know the artfulness of  that woman, Molly."  "What has she done?"  "She is telling everybody that, according to your account, your father is  'getting over his difficulties.' That is  how she puts it. She doesn't believe it,  she says; / but they'll see what - sort of  a present he gives to the-bazar."  "The hateful woman!" I cried. "She  is "  "She was talking about it In Joynt's,  the butcher's, when I passed this  morning.   Of course I did not listen���������"  "Of course not," I agreed.  "But I could not help hearing what  she said. Old Mrs. Wilkins heard her  say the same thing In Staize's, the costumier's; .and Mr. Cattley asked Charlie about it, and said he did so hope it  was true."  "I don't think he is to blame," I said.  "My dear, he is to be pitied���������poor fellow!     But   anyhow   you j see "   she  shrugged her shoulders and held up her  hands.  "You mean they'll say nasty things if  father doesn't give something expensive?"  "That's what I'm afraid of, dear." 1  drew a long breath. "They shan't. T  will give something good somehow. 1  don't know how I'm going to,do it." J  felt like crying, but Mrs. Serplis  stroked my shoulder.  "Couldn't you get:some fancy-.materials?   I'd soon run you up something."  "They cost such a lot."  "I know they do," she sympathized.  "Iwish we had something to���������lend you.  But there's the doctor's bill���������where we  came from; he's been waiting such a  time���������and the rates just come in." Sne  sighed. "I hardly know what we shall  do ourselves,  Molly."  I sighed, too, : and we did not say  'anything :for��������� a few minutes;' then she  found it was time to go, and we said  good-bye. When she says good-bye, I  put my arms right round, her. It is the  proper way*���������for her!  After I had thought .the matter over,.  _L_iriade_up._mv mind to save tiie.,nioney_  out of  had given handsome presents."   In the  list I found: "Mr. and Miss Marchant."  I really did not know what to do, so  I consulted Jane. Jane is not much  use to consult, but Mrs. Serplls was not  well, and I felt I must talk to somebody.  "Yer carn't give nothink, w'eh yei  ain't got nothink to give," Jane said,  when she had nearly bitten the end ofi  her apron.  "You always put things so clearly!"  I told her. Jt was meant to be sarcastic, but she took it for a compliment.  "An' if yer ain't got nothink to give,  yer carn't git nothink."  "That Is exactly my difficulty."  "The question is, ain't yer got no-  think?"    She looked at .me meaningly.  "What?" I asked. She fidgeted about.  "I've got three-an'-six."  "I wouldn't dream of such a thing."  "I don't see "  "I couldn't, Jane. Really, I couldn't;  though It Is very very kind of you." if  really was. "Besides, It Is not nearly  enough."  "No," she agreed. "I don't suppose  It, ain't. Well, yer'll 'ave to do It out of  the 'ousekeepln'."  I shook my head,  "Wot does them boys want with  treacle, an' suet puddln's. an' "  "Oh, Jane! They must have something, poor little fellows."  "Greedy little pigs,7.1.call 'em!" Jane  does not get on with the boys, because  they say her hair Is red. It Is not red  really, but carroty.  "If you cannot speak properly of  them', Jane," T said, "you had better  hold your tongue."  "Alwus goin' without things tor 'em,"  she grumbled, "you an] the master;  stuff an'- rubbidge, I call it. .Wot I  don't 'old with, an'���������"  "Last Saturday," I pointed out,  "when I had no pennies for sweets,  you made them some toffee; and " -  "More fool me!" She bit her apron  savagely. '" 'Owsomever, that -.ain't  neither 'ere noi-; there."  "No; but you said there was something; I could give."  "I didn't say nosich thing-"  "Well,  yon  looked  it."  "Wot if I did?"  Jane can be very obstinate. I am not  obstinate;; but I am firm.  "What did you mean?'.' I insisted.  She fidgeted about more than* ever.  "For goodness' sake, stand still!"  "I was. thinkin' of���������the doll's dress."  I sank down on a chair. "The, doll's  dress! ' Oh,: Jane!"'  "In course, I didn't suppose as 'cw  yer would, but��������� Don't look like that,  Miss Molly.; Don't, there's ai dear!"  "I���������I shall be all right in a minute,  ft���������it isn't that I' mind, only���������oh.  Jane!"  I laid my head down* on my arms,  and Jane put her hand' on my shoulder. It may not be a soft hand, but It  ia a very kind one.  "I know, dear," she said���������and I think  she was crying���������"I know ars yer mother made it, an' no one couldn't 'ave  done It lovelier; but "  "What"would she think, if���������if "  Jane wiped her eyes fiercely. "She'd  rather yer done: it a thousand times  than she'd 'ave people look down on  the master."  I got up .from my chair quickly.  "You are quite right, Jane. I shall  send It to-morrow; and���������thank you."  Then I ran upstairs and locked myself in my bedroom. I bathed nvy eyes  before *l: came .down, so that no*..*, one  should notice. Jane was very: nice, and  did not grumble, even when I gave the  boys a penny each to spend. I thought  It would please mother if she knew.  The next morn Ins I took out 'the  doll's dress, and did it up very quickly, and sent Jane round with it., -II  was a very beautiful dress���������white satin" worked all'over, with tiny, little silk  flowers and leaves. It must have taken mother a long, long time; and I  know that she would never have done  it if.she had not been very.fond of me.  Even Mrs. Cattley could not, find: any  fault with it, and she wrote to say thai  ihe should be surprised if It did not  fetch at least a couple of pounds. People could not say, things of father after that; so I was glad.  At least, I tried to be glad; but I did  not seem very bright somehow.. Father  asked  several   times  if  anything  -.vas  the matter._ He always--,notices., I, told  him "Nothing;"  but I was afraid that  he did not believe me. .So I tried my  hardest to be. cheerful, because he is so  sat beside me.   '"What is wrong?" he  asked, "dear little girl?"  "Nothing, daddy," I said.  He walked up and down the room  two or three times. Then ho came  back and put his arm round me. "Tell  me, llttle������-nother?" he begged.  So I told him. He blew his nose very  hard several times; but he did not  speak till I had done.  "I am glad you have told me, dear/1  he said at last, "but I knew."  "You knew?"I cried.. "Who? When?'*1  "It was Cattley. He���������he is a good  fellow."  I nodded.  "He came to me this morning and  told me about lt. He wanted his wife  to let him buy lt and send lt back ta  you, but she would not. That woman   1" lie kicked the footstool suddenly, "I can't say things about a woman, but "  "I can." I sat up on the sofa. "She  is "  Father hold up his hand. "We should  pity her, -Molly," he said, "for being���������  what she Is! Anyhow, Cattley begged  me to accept a couple of sovereigns  and buy lt for you. He dared not buy  It himself, ho said, nnd he was set on  your having It.   He is a good man."  "A very, very good man," I said.  "Luckily I had no need to borrow.  The 'Whirlwind' sent me a cheque for  three tales this morning. So I went to  the bazar this afternoon, and I brought  back your doll's dress."  "Daddy!" I cried.    "Daddy!"  He lit his pipe, but let Jt out again!  directly.  "When your mother ;was finishing  .that dress, one night"���������he seemed to be  talking to: himself���������"I remember teasing her about spending- so much time  and money on a plaything for a little  girl. "She smiled up at me���������you remember how she used to smile-'���������"  He turned, away and pretended to  light the pipe again.  " 'Isn't she worth It, dear?"/she said.  'She alwayST^-she'   .   .   ."  He stopped suddenly, and I jumped  up and put my arms round his neck.  "She thought: there was no one; like  you,": I whispered; "and there; Isn't,  daddy dear."  He sighed, and smiled, too. "Yon are:  just like her, my-child," Ue said; "Just  Iiko her!"  'I know: myself'.,8hat I am not good,  like mother was; but I .want him to  think so!'

They said something;  about it, too, when father was playing  with, them, and: he gav*. nie four shili-  In^s extra.  "Buy7 the little beggars some goodies. Molly," he said. "Yes, yes, dear! 1  know you do your best;: and a wonderfully good-best it,Is. But7 you get too  much for me, dear.   I really don't want  bacon   for breakfast,  and "���������    I   put  my hand over his mouth.  ' "Don't,'; I said. "Oh, daddy, don't!"  Mother always saw that he had things.  However, I promised that tho>  should have some nice cakes. Mr;..  Serplls helped me to make them one  afternoon, so they came rather cheap  You see, she was one of a large family. I saved one-and-three out of thr-  four shillings. That made five-and-six  altogether.  I expected to make It up to nearlj*  half a sovereign the next week; but  father was Worried because he had, not  quite enough for the gas bill. It will  run up, though I am ever so careful.  So I gave him part of my housekeeping money toward it, and tried to put  oft some of the bills; but the tradespeople were not very nice.  "Seein" as ev'ryone sez as 'ow yer  father's doin' better," the butcher told  me, "I was expectin' as 'e'd pay orf  some of the back owin's. I'm a man  wot's got to live, I am." I suppose he  has; but he need not do it so disagreeably.  Then there were the hoys' boots.  Bob's were right out at the toes, and  they'd been capped twice and soled  half a dozen times. Tommy's were  nearly dropping off his feet. He came  home crying because the boys at school  teased him about them. Boys do not  mean to be unkind, but they never  think. The shoemaker was very pleasant, and said if I paid for one pair I  might owe for the other. I could not  jxpect more than that, because he has  n. large family, and they aro very poor.  Jf we had a lot of money I should like  to help them.  A few days' before the bazar Mrs.  Cattley sent a printed circular. It was  addressed : to father, but I opened it.  There was a list in it of "Donors who  quick at guessing anything,' and-! d!3~  not want him to be worried about the  dress.  I played with the boys more than  usual; and Airs. Serplis helped me to  make them some soldiers' clothes. They  were very: pleased with them; . and  when they caught me moping, I said It  ,was only toothache, and they must not  tell father, because I did not want to  ���������go to the dentist and have it. pulled  out. .So they did not say anything.  They are good little fellows, If they are  tiresome sometimes, like all boys are.  When the day of the bazar came,  however, I was right down miserable.  Of course I would not go to it; and In  the afternoon I went to sleep. When I  woke up;. Jane-told me that father had  been home, and dressed himself, and  gone out again.  "Rare an' smart >. looked," she said.  "I 'ope as.'e ain't got one In 'is eye,  wot Wouldn't never do for'im wot you  done."  I waa so cross that I stamped my  foot at her.  "You are a bad. Impudent, foolish  girl, Jane; and you can take a month's  notice."  She stared at me. "No fear, I don't  do no slch thing.:I know when yer well  off, If yer don't yerself." ...-i' .  "It is not your business whether I am  well off or not," i told her. "Please  leave the room."  She stared at me again. "Lie down  on.the sofa. Miss Molly," she suggested, "an' let me bring yer some tea. It'll  do yer 'ead good. Yer know I didn't  mean  nothink, an'���������there!  there!"  If Jane does silly things sometimes,  she never means ���������any harm. That Is  why I like her, arid will not' let the  boys tease her about her hair.  After I, had had some tea, I** went'to  sleep again upon the sofa. At least 3  should have gone to sleep, only .the  ���������boys came In fromschool and jumped  on me. They were playing that'I was  an elephant, when father came In.  Then they* made believe that he was  a tram-car, and climbed up on his  shoulders. He said they might have  tea with us, if th������!y were extra good.  After tea he read two '' chapters ot  Robinson Crusoe aloud. Then he gave  them some chocolates that he had  bought, and.

Not  long ago tho Washington hunt of Valley Forge started a young fox in the  North Valley hi;is, and the hounds  were running it across tho open licld,  when the hunters were surprised to  see a much larger fox come from tlie  woods and run diagonally across the  track of the young fox ahead of tho  hounds, arid when'they struck the  stronger track of the bigger fox thoy  took it up, young Reynard thereby being saved from being run down and  killed by the hounds.  Old hunters say thoy have frequently witnessed this trick when young  foxes were being closely pressed aud  in danger of being run down and killed  by the hounds. ��������� Another and even  sharper trick was played by an old fox  some, weeks ago while being hotly  chased by hounds. The fox had run  some twenty miles, and* while crossing an open stretch of country, was* in  danger of being run down and .killed.  'In a field through which the fox was  running with the hounds "close to its  heels was the cellar of an* old house,  with a portion of the walls still standing.' The'*fox made straight' for tho  old cellar, leaped into it, and made its  escape through a narrow opening In  the walls. - The hounds.'supposlng tho  fox was trapped, dashed Into the cellar  pell mell to find Reynard gone and  themselves in a trap, as the.hole in the  wail through'which tlie fox had escaped was too small to permit them to get  through. '  When tho hunters rode up they  found the pack in a trap, with one of  the hounds wedged fast in' the holo  through which the fox had' made' its  escape. By the time the hounds were  got out of the cellar the fox was safa  in its hole.���������Philadelphia Times.'  Mining7 For Rubies.  .NE advantage gained by the victory of the British over Kinff  Thebaw of Burmah some years  ago, was the acquisition of the  famous ruby mines, from which  had come the finest "pigeon-blood"  stones in the world, and It was expected that an Immense treasure of  these gems would be found In the royal  palace. But, although In the looting  of the monarch's hastily-abandoned  residence, Jars filled with rubles were  discovered, nearly all of them'were ot  little value, being flawed .and In other  respects poor specimens.  It was.a great disappointment. Nevertheless, confidence In the resources of  the mines was unshaken, and capitalists lnlSngland were so enger to .buy  nhares in a company organized to exploit the ruby fields that the police  were obliged to defend, with drawn  clubs, the ofllcers . of the concern  against a swarm of .hnlf-crazcd would-  be Investors.  Shares in the enterprise Were boomed  to astonishing figures, but tumbled  alarmingly when news began to leak  out that tho ruby craze was likely to  prove a bubble. Mining hnd been begun on an extensive scale, but somehow the gems did_ not materialize, and  It looked as though: the fields, were  much less valuable than had been supposed, or as If the deposits had been  exhausted. Alter some years Investors'  made7 up their minds that their money  was as good as lost'. Hence the great  and delightful' surprise conveyed by  the -recent intelligence that the: mines  have begun to pay dividends.  Experience has taught Improved  methods of.: mining, and an; electrical  power, plant has been set up by the  company for washinjr the ruby-bearing  earth, called "byou." This byou Is'  widely distributed throughout the Mo-  gok Valley. Natives have worked the  upper crust ot lt for centuries, says the  "Saturday Evening Post," and the Idea  now in view is to get at the lower-levels and dig down to bed-rock, where,  because of their weight, the largest  crystals are likely to be found.' A fine  stone of twenty-eight carats vvns.plcked  up recently, and its value may be Imagined from the fact that a ruby of one  carat is worth four limes as much as a  diamond of: the same size.  The;Britlsh company (as reported by  Mr. G. F.

Some of the.women, on the contrary,  have attained a" high degree of excellence and produce, some lovely sprays.  As a rule the.cottagers themselves do  not make up.thecflowers, etc., into collars, ends or ties, but sell them direct  to a woman who/mounts .them and  sends ihem::to, London and elsewhere'  for sale.

In the same.way as cottagers  do elsewhero at knitting or crochet. ���������  The people of Devon, who prided  themselves upon the beautiful lace  once produced there, are rejoiced at its  revival.

I murmured something confused  about seeing her again,' and then; when  I had given the sobbing Totsey a. fleeting embrace, I pushed blindly past1 the  group of. curious ones who had gathered In the passage, and .went out into  the open air.  I had toid my mother that t*I '.had  friends who* would take me ,in if 'I  asked,; and' I had not :deliberately; uttered a falsehood. I had only said the  first thing that occurred to me, with  the desperate impulse to escape.

Nobody  cared.    Ti  would be better If I were dead.  Rain began to pour down ln sheets,  and I was soon wet to the skin. The  streets were emptyi-c., for people had  hurried Into shelter from the storm,  and only here and tliere could be seen  an "umbrella, black ns. a..scurrying bat  over the pavement, that shone with'  rain beneath the gu--lamps.  It occurred to me lhat I might stand  under the protection of some doorway  until the worst of the storm should be  over; but in my dull despair it seemed  hardly worth while to care for the  wretched body vvhicn had ceased to be  of Importance to me or anyone else. So  I went through.th:* .lownpojr, stolidly;  and at Ian. when I had walked for a  very long lime and n was really dark, I  camo to a great bridge over Uie  Thames.    "  It was in my way. going strright on, .  to come to it; nr.a i proceeded at flrst  steeped In the stiiui������������������������ apathy that was  part of my. conditl.ni.

Perhaps  there mny be son', ���������v.-here else���������somewhere beyond. You could find out here."  The thunderstorm'was long ago over,  but rain still fell he-'vily and .steadily.  Except when ;;;i i'i '"ilbus rumbled by,  there was '''scarcely, anyone on the  bridge,: and nobody who passed paid  any attention to me, as I'covvered close  to the stone wall* In one of the embrasures. In my bin ck dress and hat.  my slim little figure inusf.have melted  into the shadows of night.  Two forces jn my. nature began war.-,  ring together as I looked down at the  dark, flowing water,with a thought In  my mind that never in :my life had  harbored there belce. '  "You- are young," one voice said. .  I'Only eighteen. It Is pitiful, that you,  who have been petu-d and loved, and  told that you were beautiful, should  die like this. "Who knows, what tin'  years; may yet hold for; you if you  stay and see?"  But the: other voice answered: "It'a  no use., What can: a girl like you do  against the world? You haven't a penny.

Blind and deaf save to the tempest of my. own spirit, I put life be-i  hind me���������stretched out my arms ' to  death. .1* thought I was falling, that I  had thrown myself over. It was as if  my body were lifted by the force of  my own passionate self-abandonment. -  For an Instant I knew nothing. Then  a man's voice spoke close to my ear.  "Poor child! For heaven's sake ivliat  has brought you to this?" -  I had not fallen. The river was not  to have me after all. Thi^-man's hands  had dragged me,back, snatching, me  from the stone bench and' holding 'me  fearfully,'to'his7 side.  I did not answer ���������'his question. I  don't think that he expected it. 1 did  not even struggle to free myself, for  .the conviction o������ his strength robbed  me of all mine, as he half-carriedi half-  led me off the bridge. I had not seen.  his face, knowing only that he was  tall and very, very strong; but sudden-  Jyajlght dazzled my eyes, and, scarcely reallilng^whafl-'didrl- looked������up-at_  him.  * At the same instant his eyes were on  my face, and by the exclamation of astonishment he gave, I guessed that it  was for the first time, to-night.  ."Great heavens!" he ejaculated.  As he recognized me, so did I know  him again. It was the man who had  looked-up from the pit to our box at  the Lyceum Theater on the night of  "The Bells;" the man who had followed  .me in a;cab when I drove away;, the  ; man who had saved.me' andmy money  from the hands of a thief. ' - %  ' -"You!'l.I whispered, halfjjeneath my  breath.  The word must,have told him that I  had not forgotten, but I was unconscious of its meaning. And suddenly I  began to cry. My hands went up to  my face, wet with "cold rath; and the  burning tears which gushej from tha  eyes.that* I hid lest he should see them.  I did* not know why the sight, of this  man had broken down all nay.self-control; but I sobbed heavy, tearing sobs  that seemed well-nigh to wrench body  and soul asunder.  "That It should be'you ot all Women  on earth," he said. "I thankedheaven  that I was in time to save a life; but  that' It should have been your life!  Now I/thank heaven a hundred/times  ;oyer."  "I wish you'd let me die!" I sobbed.  "You won't wish that���������to-morrow."  - "There are no to-morrows for me," I  answered. "I've come to the end of  everything. "And now���������you've brought  me back, to go through! lt all, all over  again. Let-me go! You had no right  -r^you:shall let.me go."  "I shall not," he said, holding Me  tightly, as for the first time X began to  struggle In his grasp. "I have the right,  nbt,!to ask questions, but to keep you  from doing a thing you would never  have dreamt of. doing If some trouble  hadn't driven you half-mad for, a moment.

"There is no such address," I snid.  bitterly, still fighting* with my tears, "i  have no relatives or friends to whom I  fan go."  "Then I will take you to mine."  As he spoke h'e.rai..ed his hand to the  driver of a cab, who saw the geslme  from a distance, and whipped up his  horse.  "I can't���������I will not������������������" I had begun,  vhen he stopped  n   .  "Why?  Because *��������� u're afraid of mo?  13ecause you  don't  know  me,   and  so  can't trust me?"

Once more the thought wa3 la my mind:  "He would be a good man to ask if you  needed help." Why, he had helped, me  twice! It was curious that I could remember occasions, but not the .ways.  Then everything,flashed back to me.  I was in a plain room, not large, .but  stately, compared;to;those;I had known  ���������of late ln Basel'street.

HE helplessness that a.man feola  when he Is lost is one of the most  terrible parts of his experience.  Perhaps this Is at Its worst when it Is  not ha but tho guide who is at fault.  The late G. W. Steevens, the war corre-'  spondent, had a terrible experience ot  the kind in the Egyptian desert.  "We  had  been  journeying  ail   day,  hoping    to    reach    the    monastery   a  night.    I began to feel sleepy and t<  droop  in the back.    I  swung my  lei  over the pornmel, and settled myself t.  ride astraddle.    Then I decided to sltii'  side-saddle on the off-side for an hour.j  then change and ease the strain again.)  So I rode, looking steadily at the ereao  yellow blotch ahead of me.  "But now the sun was,dipping dowikj  igaln under our hat-brims: It was past!  tour. It would ^ie dark at half-pastl  Ave; If we had not sighted; our monas-l  lery then, we were helpless.'

To my eye one ridge,*  one dip, one hill was exactly like every;  other. We had been riding ten hours'  and must have come: fifty miles; our  monastery was only.forty-flve. "We  had missed it and it was all but dark.

Visitine brethren welcome  G. E. GROGAN. HY. EDWARDS,  President. Hon. Secretary.  Electric trains on the Duncan river  is the latest scheme for affording the  mines on the Duncan river side of the  Lardeau country an outlet for their  ores. James Carson Murray, formerly  of Rossland, writes from Trout Lake  to state that a syndicate of Mew York  and Minneapolis capitalists are maturing a scheme to lake up all the timber  on the Duncan river that they can  secure, and. that they propose constructing an electric tramway on llie  liver, vtitli aerial trains up the creeks  limning into thu main Duncan. Tliis  further solves the problem of vtrans-  portation for the Lardeau, as the new  brunch of the Canadian Pacific does  not afford facilities for shipping oi'p  from the Duncan side of the divide.  The Amarican   capitalists   have  an  engineer named Gray in  the Lardeau  at the   present   time,   inspecting   the  country  generally and   reporting   on  he tinibea.and iniueral prospects.  Mr. Murray states that there is  considerable excitement over recent  strikes in the Old Gold camp.' On the  Guinea Gold property a lead was discovered showing up ore that runs 1200  - to ID-JO ounces of silver per ton, while  on the Pedro, which is being operated  by the recently organized Marie  Marilla company, a lead has beeu  opened up in which the ore carries leaf  and wire native silver. The assays of  these^samplei containing native silver  give enormous values.  As a director of the Cariboo Creek  Development Syndicate of Hossland.  . Mr. Murray has recently visited the  syndicate's claims on Cariboo Creek  and is much pleased with the prospects  for the property. He states lhat when  he went in the claims were somewhat  """"difficult '���������5f'acce8s_6wihR"''to'"the"laie"ne������s-  of the season, and that it had been  determined not to prosecute work  actively until it wai possible to get in  supplies and tools under the most  favorable circumstances.  J.   W.   Westfall,   manager   of   the  ���������syndicate  at Lardeau. writes to state  that   he   has   gone over the Kflie nnd  Colonial claiuis.owued by the company  "on   Cariboo Creek, and   that he finds  the properties all that   have been s^id  of tbem.     The   ledge   on  the   Kflie i������  strong aud  well  maintained, carrying  a quantity of clean ore, though essentially   a   concentrating proposition of  mora than ordinary  merit.   The Colonial, which adjoins, looks equally well.  In addition to the claims mentioned  the  syndicate   owns  .1   group   in lhe  immediate   vicinity   of    tbe     Guinea  Gold property.on which bonanza silver  ore was discovered  a  few days since,  and   the   value   of   these   holdings is  substantially  enhanced  by the strikes  in the vicinity.���������Rossland Miner.  The Speech Wins Approval.  Which Will Effect Great Saving  in Reduction of Ore���������Gets Rid  of the Waste Leaving the  Mine.  Few people realize what a number  there are of appliances to simplify and  increase the efficiency of concentrating  milling and by various devices lead to  tlie cheaper treatment of gold and  silver ores. Only a few of these ever  reach the mining field of the west, but  in looking over the scientific journals  one is almost amazed at the countless  numbers of such things put upon the  market. Slathers of them don't get  very far from.the workshops of the  producers. Rarely does one come up  to the requirements of the mines;  .But inventive minds continue to  experiment. Oue of these days there  will prance out of the multitude a  man with a machine anda system  that will make, a'stir among the  operators of the present day.  It may he that Emil A. F.

Mr. Chamberlains appearance in the  House of Commons on Tuesday wa.s  marked by a speech which won the  spplause even of such opponents as Mr.  Labouchere. Mr. Chamberlain dealt  comperhensively with the past and  future of South Africa.  "W������ are not goingto allow the result  of the war to be undermined," said Mr.  Chamb2rlain, "by intrigues carried on  by nominally constitutional means.  ������������������We bave no intention," he declared,  ������������������ that the Boers should break with  their   old   traditions.   We desire that  a new system for the reduction of  gold and silver ores. His patent  covers the reducing of ores of a  complex composition to lower or  simpler combination, thus allowing a  larger yield by ��������� subsequent treatment  of friction and separation.  Here is the outfit he proposes to use:  The apparatus consists of a furnace  sub-divided into an upper, or ore, and  a lower, or fuel, chamber with suitable  contrivance to introduce atmospheric  oxygen and hydrogen. By the use of  tlie two lattar all sulphurated ores are  first converted into sulphates and then  "deprived of their sulphur and eonverted-  into hydrogen and leaves the ores in a  metallic state. The charge will assume  the consistency of a spongy^ mass in  which the minute carticles of gold and  silver are exposed and can be thorough-  ly extracted by any of the present  methods of handling. It will be seen  that il does uot extend to the recovery  of the metals., but simply prepares the  ores for easy extraction. Mr. Schultze  stute.i that the advantage of this  process of chemical trituration is in  the absence of ������xpensive ciushing and  rousting machines. The apparatus is  portable and can be transferred from  mine to mine. The crude ore i.������ broken  up in the line of cleavage, exposing the  suinllext particles of precious metals.  Charcoal can be used where coke and  fii������l arc not available. The cost of  construction, wear and tear, labor and  find, is reduced to a minimum.  It seems to resolve itself into a cheap  mode of   concentration,   cleaning eut  the waste   and   leaving  the metals in  .small   bulk   to   be   managed   bv any  nifthod adapted to getting out the gold  and   silver.      By   the   description the  apparatus can b������  packed or carried in  a wagon to different mines in a district  pnt   to work  on dump of   sorted ores  and in a short time will  prepare,, them  for   easy   manipulation.     Like   most  improvements   brought  out, it   i* designed   to   cover only a small part of  the mining necessities.     Again, it may  work very   well   by laboratory test in  Baltimore,   but  when   confronted by  the needs of the  big mining field out  here,  it  may fall down altogether.���������  Nelson News.

Its Early   History���������Becomes   a  /     Part of Dominion  of  Canada  in 1871���������Its Population, Cities,  Premiers and Governors.  /   About the middle of the last century  British Columbia was, created a crown  colony   and   Richard   Blanshard was  aunt out from  England iu  1830 as the  flint Koveinor.    He, however, resigned  very   soon   utter   his   arrival   in   tho  colony   and   was  succeeded   by    the  Cli'efFactor of thu Hudson's Bay Co.,  ��������� James Douglas, in ISol.  In 1850 the flrst Legislative Assembly  was elected for Vancouver Island and  met in Victoria. In this first Assembly  Victoria was represented hy 3. S3.  Pomberton, .lames Yatos and .1. W.  McKay; Nanaimo, by John F. Kennedy; Esquimau, by Thomas Skinner  and J. S. Helmcken: Sooke by John  Mu if.  ln the year 1SJS gold was discovered  on the Fraser and the mainland wa?  organized into a * separate colony and  after a time New Westminster was  chosen the capital of the new colony,  the late Queen Victoria having the  privilege of naming the new capital.  The members of the first Assembly  were: Arthu r Birch, Henry P. Crease,  Wyinond O. Hamley forming ������������������ thc  executive, and Messrs. O'Reilly, Ball,  Saunders, Nind, Brew, Homer, Smith,  Holhrook, Orr, Black.  In I860, the two colonies were united  with Victoria as the capital, and "in  1871 B. C. became part of the gieat  Dominion of Canada. One of the  principal conditions upon which B. C.  became a province of Canada was that  a railway be built to connect with the  Atlantic seaboard.  _Greatv has been the progress since  this * province became a part of the  Dominion, but our wonderful natural  . resources have scarcely commenced to  be developed.*.- The* future of this  province carnot be anticipated by the  " most sanguine.  * In regard  to area we stand first of  all the provinces foi-niingthe Dominion  having an area of 400,000 square miles.  The province is rich in minerals, timber  and  fish.   Its agricultural capabilities are   considerable   and'will one  day support a large population.    Only  those who have seen  the great shoals  of flsh that riin by the millions in our  rivers can'form any adequate idea of  wealth this province possesses in fish  ,     alone.     Then   we have the great coal  ��������� -   * areaa'pf Vancouvei Island and around  Fernie, who can'estimate .their valui?  Anecdotal.  When the I3ng.llsh barrister, P.ichard  Eve, desired lo "lake silk"���������or, in other  words, to ber*ome a Queen's Counsel���������  he sent the usual note to the senior  members on tliu circuit to see whether  anyone objected, according: to custom.  Mr. Adam Walker, ofte of the senior  members, replied as follows:���������" My  dear Eve,���������You may take silk or a fig-  leaf.    I don't care.���������Adam."  Shortly after Sir Lawrence Alma-  Tadema, R.A., was knlffhted, he and  Lady Alma-Taclema save an At  Home at St. John's Wood. Everybody present was congratulating them,  and one lady was very profuse. " Oh,  dear Sir Lawrence," she said, " I am  awfully glad to hear of the honor you  have received. I suppose now that you  are knighted you -will give-up .painting  and live like a gentleman."  In an Ohio town last fall, the African  Methodist-Episcopal Church of that  district held a conference, and for a  week the town was filled with colored  pulpit orators. A few days after the  conference closed' its sessions, one of  the leading colored women ot the town  drove out to Pea ltidge to purchase  chickens of an old mammy who had  supplied the family for years. Aunt  Hanna, coming to the gate, said: " I'm  sorry, Miss Allie. I ain't got a chicken  left.    Dey all done enter de ministry.  A story is going- the rounds about  a prominent Nova Scotia lawyer who  is noted -for his carelessness in dress,  whieh fact annoys the members of the  Ear exceedingly. Entering the court-  iroom. one day minus a cravat, the  judge reproved him, saying the law  required him to wear one. " Oh, yes,  your honor. I know It," lie answered;  "but it does not say where he shall  wear It," and as he spoke he pulled it  out of his trousers pocket. The matter  then dropped.  General William T. Sherman was  fond of relating the following story:  " When I was with tihe army in Georgia, a slave-owner aljout Christmas  time missed a fine fat turkey. He suspected a good-looking mulatto, and ordered the man brought before him.  ' Tou have stolen my turkey and eaten  it,' said the irate planter. ' l'se not  gwine to say I didn't, when you says  I <3id, massa.' 'I ought to have you  flogged. What have you to say why  I should not punish you?' '.Well, massa, you hain't lost anything particular.  You see,- you has a little less turkey  and a good deal more nigger.' And.the  master was compelled to acknowledge  the philosophy of the slave, and let  h'im go unwJiipped."  As a young man Paul Kruger. was regarded as an authority on.ipsaUm singing, and the farmers used  to conie  to  .him to learn_the keynote .for starting  the psalms at  the nexlt Sunday's service.    Kruger, even in  tlhose days, was  no tiellevei'-in tlie policy of giving anything away���������not even'a note of music���������  so he had a uniform charge of a double,  handful   of   dried   peaches  -for liis   instruction.   Even the fact that the work  was in the-service of religion did "hot  deter him from  resorting to strategy,  for 'he made a point of giving each ap--  plicant  a   different  note.      The   result  when the pious ��������� Doppers' attempted to-  raise   their   voices  in   (-.acred  .harmony*  next   Sunday   may  be   imagined.     The  result was that each man concluded he I  had lost the key, and had to return for'  a further lesson..'"I neaifly^banlcrupted'  them of their' drle'd*p'e'ache"s,"''sald[ the-  ���������presldent.'   ��������� -'-.'"  Ford'Madox Brown, the artist, once  had "to be'smuggled into his own exhibition. The occasion was a private view  in Bond street af the Manchester fresco, ."John Kay." The artist being unwell at the time was accomp'anied.'ln  his carriage to the gallery by his doc--  tor and old friend, Willliam Gill. The'  time passed pleasantly enough en route  in conversation, when suddenly Madox  Brown's talk came to an abrupt full  stop; .he started as though struck by,  some very disquieting j thought, and  wildly plunged round In his various;  pockets; Wank'dismay depicted on his  countenance the while. "Good heavens,  Gilll!" he ex-clalmed, "I have torgotten  my card of admission! What am I to,  do?" "Your card of admission!" replied his amazed friend, "surely you  can get in without that?" "No, no,"  answered Madox Brown' in despair,  "they will never let me in���������they don't  know me!" Fortunately, however, Mr.  Gill was provided. with the necessary  passport, and he .thus played the dls-  _ttnctly_orIglnal_ro]e_.of_getting_an_artist_.  admission Into his own show.  The Full Court Lets Itself  Down Light by -Accepting  an Apology from William7  McAdams.  Mr. William McAdnms. editor of  the Sandon Paystreak, has been released from the Provincial Gaol. lie  was brought bul on- thc Full Court at  Victoiia Fr'd.-iy morning, when his  apology wns read thus:  '���������The   only   motive   present   to my  mind in writing the article objected to  .vas  what I conceived to be the interest   of   the   public,   and   I   wiote  it  on the impulse of  the moment, and in  -loins so   I   us-ed language referring to  the coin L in   term*, which were intemperate,'   improper   and   void   of     the  rpspect due to Their Lordships' .persons  ind ollice.

Chief Justice Hunter then adininis-  reied a severe lecture/and an under*  .landing was given that the apology  -hould appear in the Sandon Paystreak  in which paper the offending article  ippe.ued.

A 'local clerftynian was engaged in  conversation! with a number of friends  the other day, says the Duluth "News  Tribune," when each started telling  stories of weddings he had performed.  One of the party had this to offer:  Some time ago a great big fellow,  roughly dressed, and a wee mite of a  young woman came to him. Thev- had  no witnesses, and, in tact, did not care  to have any. Nevertheless* a bridesmaid and groomsman were selected  from the household, and the ceremony  began.

Princess and lived happily forever altar."     "*  A girl of probably twenty, in a bis  chair, by the light of a bright hearth  fire, was reading to a younger girl, a  much younger girl���������In fact, a little  girl. The story is concluded and the  book closed.  "There,, dear, how does that story;  please you? Don't^ou wish you knew]  such an interesting, handsome, nobla  Prince as the one of whom. I have Jusl;  read?"  This Interrogation from the older  slrl the younger one unconsciously  ignores for a time. She is dreaming1.  Hex bis, blue eyes are staring vacantly into the red embers, which have  fallen from the logs on the hearth.  Then she sighs deeply.  Waking from her reverie, she turns  those wide wondering eyes of hers into  the face above her, for she is seated at  the older girl's knee and asks:  "Do you knew, Julia, that Prince reminds me of Mr. Mercer? Mr. Mercer  is handsome. And he's brave, too.  'cause he saved my dollie when it fell  into the lake last summer. Only"���������*  in. a regretful tone���������"he hasn't any,  princes for hi3 bride yet But he will  hive, 'cause he said he would."  j "Oh, he did!" from the older girl.  ' "Yes, ho did. Least, he's going to  marry a queen. And isn't it strange,  Julia., her name is just the same as  yours?"  "Why, child, what are you sayingV  Bow do you know ail this?"  "Well," answered the little one,  puckering .her mouth in a childish  quizzical way, "while Mr. Mercer was  .���������waiting for you to finish dressing for  the theatre, the other evening, he toolc  me od. his knee and we sat here by the  fire. I told him I was awful tired.  reading fairy stories, and asked him  lt he couldn't tell me one. He said he  thought he didn't know anx 'cept  ���������what's in the books, but 'coifrse, if S  wanted him to he'd try."  ��������� "Yes, and what did he tell yo?"  "He said, 'Once there was a man who;  ���������liked a girl awful much, but he wan  afraid to tell her so, 'cause he didn't  .know how she'd take it.' And he said  "By Jove, I wish she wasn't so distant to me.' And 1 said, 'Is sho so far  away?' He said, 'No, not that kind ot  .distant' 'She's not kind to you, then?'  said I." 'Well, not kind enough,' said!  he. Then I told* him sho wasn't nice  if she wasn't kind, and he said, right  quick, 'Oh, yes, she is nice; she's adorable���������she's a queen.' 'Why, what's  her name?' said I. Well, he was staring into the fire, and he took a big,  long breath, and said 'Julia.' "  "Yes, yes," said the older girl, vers  tauch interested.    "Go on."  " 'Why, that's my sister's  name,' I  eald.   'Does she know her?" "  And he jumped up so quick he real-  . ly frightened me, but then he kissed  me and sat me on the edge of tho  table and said: 'Now. Joyce. I started in to tell you a fairy story, didn't  I?' 'Yes,' said I; 'but it wasn't much  account' 'I know that,' said he. awful quick, 'and I want you to forget all  about it, and I'll come around some  other time and tell you another one.'  'Well, if it isn't any better than tho  one you started, you needn't come.'  said I. And he���������why. he laughed and  said he'd try and make the next more  interesting. Then you came downstairs, and when you were going out  "with���������him~ he-lui'n������l-aroiind^-piitr--his-  tinger on his lips, nnd he looked reaJ  serious.   I think "  "Why, Joyce,  he  meant you  should  not say anything abcut it."    .  "About what?"  "Why, about whit he told you. It  was naughty of you, Joyce; it was  wrong."  "Well, that's the second time "I  didn't know wh:tv -eep quiet' meant.  You know win; vou said about him  last  week.   .Well,  after    I  told    him  hiir  about it "  "What! did  you  tell  him  ail  abou'  boot and taken ott one little black  flocking.  Quito unabashed by the frown from  hor sister, she hops over to Mercer,  and with tho bare foot hidden In her  skirts, and  asks:  "Won't you hang this on the mantel  for me, please? Now don't put it too  near tho middle, for las' Christmas  the heat made the candy all soft and  1 couldn't eat it."  ' Both Mercer and Joyce's sister laugh  at this remark, and, with'the aid of a  tack, the stocking is hung. The young  man takes from the packago a magnificent French doll.  Giving vent to an exclamation of  surprise and delight; Joyce makes a  rush for tho prize, and, obtaining it,  spends several hurried moments in  admiration and examination. Then,  remembering about bed, she throws  one little arm around Mercer's neck;  the other tightly holds the doll. She  gives him a hearty kiss, and, lookins  oarnest'y Into his eyes, exclaims: 'Oh.  you are so good!' and turning to hoc  sister, she says:   "Isn't he, Julia?"  With a perceptible blush the sister  answers, "Why, yes, he is, indeed. Bul  you must run off to bed now."  With a happy smile on her little  fnce Joyce kisses both her sister and  Mercer good night and starts off to bed  to dream of little fat Santa Claus  squeezing through chimneys a foot  square to fill whole rows of juvenile  hosiery with pounds of chocolates.  But at the door she hesitates, stops  and turns. "Mr. Mercer," she says,  "I hope you won't be angry, but I  didn't forget that fairy story you told  me, and I told Julia about it. Now,  you're not angry, are you?"      ,  Mercer just about realizes what tho  child haB said.    He is dazed, but ho  replies with a nervous, forced laugh:  "Am I angry?   Oh, no; not at all."  The little one is too young to notice  ���������but the older girl does���������that this is  6aid in a sarcastic way, kindly withal.  "I'm so glad," Joyce says, in a relieved tone.   "I didn't think you would  be angry, 'cause I told Julia you liked  her.    'Cause you do, don't you?"  Miss Julia has 'not only had trouble  to retain her composure during thia  interrogation, but felt she was in danger of fainting from embarrassment.  However, she controls herself long  enough to say:  "Joyce, It's almost midnight; go ovei  to your bed." -  Without any further remarks save a  sweet "Good night," tho little ono  runs off to bed."  The unexpected declaration that  Joyce had made regarding the secrets  each had thought burled in the child  had quite unnerved Julia, and Mercer  felt somewhat in the same position.  Walking to the window, Julia hides  her faco ln the folds of a friendly curtain. The flre on the hearth had tal-  most died out. Nothing came from  the embers save a dull red glow. The  lamp had not been lighted, and the  room. waa becoming enveloped in  darkness. Julia throws back the'heavy  curtains and the rich, silvery light  from a full, round moon Sows softly  Into the room.  And as the midnight hour draws  nearer there comes floating to the  window, over tho silent city's roofs,  the sound of Christmas chimes, as soft  and as pure as the moon's white rays.  "Christmas bells: Won't you come  to the window? You can hear them  better."  Mercer accepts the girl's invitation  and Is sure he can" i"etect a tenderness  in her voice that she has never used  to him before. A hope springs up ln  his breast, and as he reaches her side  he tenderly takes h<*r hand within his  own and says, almost in a whisper,"as  if awed by the stillness and the mysr  tic music of the mi-'.night chimes:  "Miss   Merton���������Julia���������Joyce     asked  me  a question beTo*-e she left  us to-  . night    You heard it?"  Faintly and faltering comes u  "Yes."  "Let me answer it to yon. I like  you. More than that, I love you. TelJ  me that I may hop������."  Julia raises her head, and In her  eyes he reads his answer. Tenderly  he stoops and kisses the lips upturned  to his, and locked in his strong embrace she stands silently, happy in hly  love.  And who knows, as they stood there  together; but what both blessed ths  child who had unconsciously told eadh  -ot-^the _oth.er.l3 loxe,_____Philadelphl������  THE   LITTLE  WATCHER.'  H  I-edger.

The old high bailiff of Kiohn pual.  oa away thc pretty little hand that his  oldest daughter sought to place over  his mouth.  "No," he said, "I will not keep quiet.  I repeat that the whole custom of sending New Year's cards is a bad one.  and it is time to put an end to it. Whar  -ire the results of such nonsense?  "First, I get my mail bag an hour  later than usual, and, secondly, it is  crammed so full of the stupid stuff  that I can hardly get it'open!"  At length the old gentleman's efforts  were rewarded, the bag sprang open,  and he emptied ltd contents with im������  patience on the breakfast table.'  "Just look what a lot there are for  me,"  cried Katharine, piling the letters upon th������ table in front of her and  her face lighting up with pleasure.  "Are they all for you?"  "Yes, all.   Now you can see~"what il  is to be known as a beauty."  "And an heiress," added the father.  "Yes, and an heiress,"' she repeated,  thoughtfully.  "But Is there nothing there for my  little Lili?" asked the father.  Katharine shrugged her shapely  shoulders impatiently.  "Why, of course not. If a'glrl expects  to be shown much attention she must  be a little more pushing and important."  "And an heiress, too?" was the  father's laconic addition to the sentence.  "I really should be very grateful,  father, if you would not allude so  much to my money," was the rather  curt protest  "I can't help it, Katharine, when I  Bee my little Lili here, as beautiful aa  the flower that gavo her the name,  and���������well, she is not an heiress, do  you understand. That's the whole  thing."  Katharine made no answer. She  -was busy studying the handwriting on  the envelopes. '  A young girl who had hitherto sat  opposite to her in silence left her seat,  went up to the' high bailiff, and, putting her. fair young arms around his  neck, gave him a kiss.  A world of love shone in his eyes  as he looked at her with pleasuro and  ���������stroked her soft cheeks.  "Never mind, Lill," he said, slowly.  "I am glad that you don't get such a  pile of letters. I'm grateful, too, that  you're not an heiress. Perhaps ttien  uo one will take you away from me."  The high bailiff of Krohn, the father  of these two girls, had 'married twice.  His first wife, a lovely, proud, but  vain woman, died soon after the' birth  of a little daughter and left her the  whol������ of a large fortune. His second  wife, the daughter of a country clergyman, brought him no wealth, but a  sweet and beautiful disposition.' When  she. too, died after two years of married life, he felt overwhelmed and had  never since wholly recovered from the  blow.  Katharine, the" elder of the children, had just finished her twentieth  year, and, as she was as proud, prettj  and just as vain' as her mother, had  already laughed at many proposals foi'  her hand���������and money. No one hai}  eo far been able to take her fancy.  Lili was in almost every respect the  opposite of her-siste1". Small in figure,  quiet and retiring, it happened that  ehe was often entl-*-'.v overlooked. It  certainly was not right of a father to  love one daughter more than another.  Still, he. did so, and it was plain to  .everybody that lt was .the sott,_ sweet,  j    patient Lili who wn." his favorite"  It made Katharine feel annoyed to  see her father so gentle and affection,  ate toward her sister, for she said,  with a sharp look ft them both:   .  "What! Kissing again! I cannot  understand how you find pleasure in  always lying round each other's  necks."  "You are out of sorts, Katharine,"  said her father. "One of the cards  you expected hai not_come,  perhaps.  ������t course, everyone thought that the  Attraction, was the rich and beautiful  Katharine, and she herself took particular pains to, spread this view of  the matter.'  Accustomed as she was to a largo  number of enthusiastic admirers, sho  had never for a moment imagined that  the Baron could interest himself ln  her quiet little sister until she was  reminded to-day In a rather unpleasant manner of the possibility of such"  ������ thing.  She read her letters through and became better humored.  "How stupid of me to get so cross,"  6he said, as she smiled at hor lovely  face in tho glass. ."It is not possible  that ho favors Lili when ho knows  tne."  .There came a gentle knock at tho  door, and tho servant girl came in and  announced that tho carriage was at  the door.  Katharine at onco remembered that  Baron Horn had promised lo go for a  drive with her, and with the thought  her face grew bright once again.  A charitable bazaar was to bo opened in a neighboring town, nnd, as tlio  father was not able to go, Baron Horn  haS offered his escort to tlie two young  ladies.  Tho Baron was as punctual as most  lovers���������that is to say, ho came half  an hour before the timo and found  Katharine quite ready, to his great, astonishment, for, as a rule, sho kept  everybody waiting half an hour at  least.  Her purpose of frustrating a tetc-a-  tote between Lili and the Baron was  completely successful, for she did not  move from his side until all tbreo  were ready to get into the carriage.  The father stood with beaming faco  on the doorstep and waved a fond  farewell after them.  "This Horn is a very sensible fellow," he thought to' himself, "and I  admire his choice. It will be very,  hard to lose Lili, but I would let him  have her rather than anyone else."  ��������� * ������     .   * ��������� *  'Although the bazaar was crowded  the arrival of Baron Horn and his tw*������  lovely companions caused considerable  excitement, and they were speedily  surrounded by acquaintances.  Among theso was a Capt. Linke, a  tall, blonde fellow, and one of Katharine's-most sincere and faithful admirers. " *'  "How glad I am to see you here,"  be said.  "Really!   Why?'.' ''     "-!''J.  "May I show you why? Please como  ���������with me. At the other end of the hall  there is a fortune teller, and I want  you to see what she will tell you.''  "May we join you?" asked the Baron*  "Certainly. Come, we will go together." ���������  The mysterious room that held the  fortune teller -was reached. The fortune teller proved to be a little figure  In the middle of a disc.  Round the disc were figures anil  numbers and slips.of paper arranged.  'Any one who wanted to see into the  future paid a mark, set the figure revolving, and took the slip of paper opposite which it stopped.  "Now, my genaediges frauleln," said  I the  captain,  taking out    his    purse,  ''won't you try your luck?"  But Katharine refused positively to  be a party to such nonsense, - and, inasmuch as Lili could .not be .-persuaded either, the Baron asked permission  to inquire of the oracle himself.  He set the figure in motion and took  the slip of paper opposite whi'ch it  stopped.  "Seek her hand and buy the ��������� ring.  Thy life wil! then be full of joy," ran"  the words.  "Fotz Blitz!" cried the captain turning to Katharine, "that is famous;  you really must be persuaded to. try,  \t now.   Or shall I do it for you?"   ,  "You may do it for me," she replied,  In such sharp tones that every ono  looked at her.  The captain turned to the figure and  read the words:   "Hast thou not often.  heard it said"    He hesitated; then  tore the paper up and threw it on the  floor. The conclusion of the. sentence  seemed to suit the many' proposals  that Katharine had received too wel>  for him to read it  "What was the rest, captain?" asked  the Baron in all - innocence    But  the captain looked so displeased that  the question* was not pressed.  . _."I wonder.what it was?"

Tho old tradition that to eat anything "just before going to bed was  sure to produce Indigestion and render sleep impossible is now happily,  exploded. It is not good, as a matter  of fact, to go to bed with the stomach  so loaded that the undigested food  should render one restless, but something of a light, palatable nature in  the stomach is one of the best aids to  quietude and rest in bed. The process of digestion goes on In sleep with  as much regularity as when one ia  taking violent exorcise to aid it, aud  fo something in tho stomach is a very,  desirable condition for the night's  rest. Some physicians have declared,  indeed, that a good deal of the prevalent insomnia is tho result ot an unconscious craving of the .stomach foi  food In persons who have been unduly,  frightened by the opinion that they  must not eat before going to bed, or  who have, like many nervous women,  been keeping themselves in a state of  kcmi-KtarYation.

I was only a week-in Denver, when  an old friend of mine, Mr. Smyth, incited me to accompany him to a Music  iHall in Chestnut street.

When   wo  reached   the  street,   we  were  told  by  a  guardian  (policeman)  that one of    the miners  twas killed, and three wounded.    The  tow was put a stop to by a dozen guardians.  My first experiences of mining life  occurred at Alpine,' situated on a level  ���������embedded  on the summit of a very  ^high mountain, sixty miles from Den-  ..ver.. We worked  In  the  mine  eight  ., "hours a day.   Our wages were $5 a day.  TThe  owners  ot  the mines  were  the  .Mary  Murphy  Company.    No  vegeta-  itloa.save that of.'trees was possible on,  these rock-bound heights: yet after the  shaft went down 200 feet, in the course  ���������of which  we had  to blast the-rocks  with gunpowder,  we discovered what  ,*s called in the miners' slang the flank-  *������d vein, where we dug up large quantities of silver.   We were sixty miners  .working in a desolate wilderness. Ten',  .email  log..' cabins,  the  bed   rooms. of  which had bunks similar to those in-  transatlantic steamers, sheltered us.  A lighted stove stood in the centre  of the room during the spring, fall,  and winter months, when it is terribly,  ���������cold on the summits of the mountains.  ,;Our log huts were situated -twenty  ���������*'iyards inside from the confines of the  atorests. I could not sleep at flrst, listening to the howlings of the large  wolves that infested* the woodlands in  the Rockies; but-I soon got accustomed to the cries, and I could 6lumber  ���������once more.' . -  On a wild night in December,. a.  ^���������colossal 'snowslide precipitated itself  against the-edge of the forest,-and  ���������ewept down on the valley to the right,  ilf our log huts were outside the limits  ���������of the forest, we would have been bur-  ded in snow. Twice a month three of  ���������,tis, mounted on "mules, descended the'  .--mountain to Alpine, a small' village,  ���������and purchased a herd of cattle which.  ;we drove up the slopes of the uplands  ���������to the site of the log huts. These animals were killed by a butcher's knife,,  ���������and were roasted on a flre of "lumber'  KVe purchased other provisions, too.  I left the mounf-tn for Garfield ^in  the spring .of 1SS1," where in the up- ���������  lands, between two huge crags, 100  miners, including myself, excavated a  Ihuge pile of "floats" (silver) from tho  ���������pile. V.      ���������-_       r  ^-li-i-TheiCompany-s-directors.'-who-'-wcre^  annnlng this mine, imagined that bequeath this mountain of Garfield were  ireins of silver. They gave instructions  to the superintendent to construct a  tunnel through .the' mountain. When*,  this work was accomplished there were  mo veins discovered,,and the company,  became bankrupt,, having lost $2,000,������  O00 in the venture. *  _ .The atmosphere upon these rocky  heights is so keen and light that our'  lungs could barely endure it, and we  sometimes .became, dizzy and fainted.  ��������� One winter's night, while we Blept  In our log cabins, ten mounted men  .from an adjoining camp woke us up,  and told us to get ready and come.  -along to lynch two Dakota desperadoes  ���������James Long and Dennis Wise���������who  bad arrived at their camp tbat mgnt  and shot two of their comrades. One,  a Swede, was robbed of his earnings,  4500, and .shot, dead afterwards. Tha  -other recovered from his wound. Thin  murder was perpetrated on the slopes  of the Rio Grande, where our visitors  bad their camp. "Curly .Bill," '.the  ��������� leader of the .camp, organized a posse  of the* townsmen of Garfield, who pursued and captured the desperadoes,  and returned to Garfield,' where they,  flocked them up, ln a calaboose, a double-legged cabin prisefc.  Afterward, ten of the men visited  His. When we had put on our clothes,  .and met our fellow-miners, I xwas the  only man among sixty who refused to  iloin in what I considered a murder.  ���������Curly Bill, the leader of the ten mon,  ������>ut the muzzle of a revolver, to1 my  forehead, 'exclaiming: "If you don't  join us, smoking.guns! I'll blow your  (brains out."  I. of course, consented to Join them,  as I could not relish tho idea of dying  ���������Jn my early youth. ...  Between the hours of midnight and  10 A. M. wo entered Garfield. Two deputies of the State, who were armed  and were guarding the two prisoners  in the calaboose, wero quickly* disarmed by fivo miners of our group.  .These were ordered by "Curly 'Bill"  to 'keep the deputies in prison for  three hours, during which timo they,  would have an opportunity of hanging  I     Hhe murdnrors. o '  Two of the minors put ropes around  the hffdles of the crlmlnats, while  "Curly Bill" appointed Andy Crawford  to shoot or hang them. It was filially,"  however, decided by the miners that  they should be hanged' from a tree.  Kccordlngly they proceeded to a wood  where one of the Dakota prisoners  broke down, and, weeping, asked foi  mercy. His comrade turned on him a  gleam of indignation in his eyes, and  poured from hl3 tongue a volley of  curses on the miserable coward. After they were hanged, twenty miners  riddled their bodies with bullets, but  I was not of the twenty. Tho prisoner  who was Indignant at tho cowardice of  his friend died game.' The two desperadoes enjoyed the hospitality of our  camp a week before the murder.  Ia the summer of '81 I went to Denver, where an official of an engineering company, Mr. Barr, employed mo  to join the men who were going to ex-  blore the Black Canons, situated 600 ���������  miles west ot Denver on the Pacific  side of the Rockies, and 250 miles distant from Gunnison City. Packed  trains, yoked to burros (asses), wore  laden with mining implements, stores,  tents and provisions. Twelve of ua  climbed the mountain the first portion  of each day, and mounted thc asses in  the afternoon. We wore sent by the  Rio Grande Railroad Company to survey this part of the Rockies. The  company desired to take possession ot  the canens before its rival, the Denver  South Park Company, could lay their  hands on them, for they were the key  to Salt Lake City.  These canons were eighteen miles  long, five to 500 .feet wide, and wero  flanked by mountains 400 feet. high.  During the three months of summer  we never saw the sun. The canons  were such dark abysses that we'had lo  use our lanterns in "exploring them.  Tho cost of tunnelling the mountains  on the .Pacific side of thc Rockies was  ?1,000,000; 6,000 workmen, of whom I  was ono, finished the tunnel in six  months, so tbat the companyjheld possession of the only route to the Mormon capital.  In the winter of 18S1 I proceeded to  -Loadville, and worked in the iron  silver mines on the Iron Mountains,  two miles north of that city. I uas  not a long lime here, when I began to  suffer from lead poison. I was ill with  the colic and could not eat food. Ono  night, provided with a lantern, as I  was promenading down the Incline of  a tunnel, my head struck against a  .pair of human legs sticking out from  a mass of lumber. I hurried back to  the cither outlet of the'-tunnel, reached  the surface, and .told the superintendent that there was a dead miner' in  the ruins of one- of the entrances to  the tunnel, which ,had caved, in. Ho  sent two miners and myself, to extricate the remains of our. comrade. When  ���������we lifted the timbers from his frame  we found that all,his bones were broken, and he presented a ghastly appearance. Ills corpse was terribly  mutilated, and blood was issuing from  its every vein, while his face was  ���������livid.  : Soon afterward I was running a  level (digging in a level tunnel for  ere), with Shea, a comrade. The soil  was so rocky tnat we had to work with  giant powder in blasting this impediment to pur mining labors. Shea and  I had reached the heading of a level,  when a- loud explosion took place, and  a large boulder, from, the roof of tho  tunnel fell on ray comrade's head and  killed him. * Thts wns my third escapo  from death.   ':*.*���������'  My next adventure-occurred in the  /prlng of 1S82. I was working on the  Helvetia mines on the wesjtern flanks  of the mountains. The shaft was'650  feet deep. One morning seven of ua  embarked from the surface in a bucket  attached'- to a ropo, held by the engineer and his. subordinates. The engineer imagined we had reached tho  end of the shaft.. So ho dropped tho  . bucket when It was fifty feet above tho  ground, ,and lt fell with an appaling  swiftness. When it touched the soil  a loud crash was heard, and' the bucket  was smashed into atoms. One miner  had his chin broken, another broko  his leg, but I escaped with a few  scratches. " I fancy I must have had  ��������� a charmed life in the Rockies.  In the spring of 1SS4 I proceeded to  the Iron Mountain. I was asked to  work on the top of the shaft one  stormy night,".-when a simoon swept  -the"-hilIsr^and-it-was~pltchTdark"~des^"  plte the ltght'of the two lanterns. The  bucket lay in" a four-wheeled car, and  was covered with snow. When, pushing, the, car before,me to the edge of  the'.shaft, I''slipped on-an * Ice-bound  rock and lost my hold of the car.  ���������When I. got'on-my feet, that.-car was  perilously near the brink of the shaft.  I realized Instantly tbat there were  three men-at the bottom of'the shaft  I made a furious effort to catch tha  'bucket's rope. Tho car pulled me  j down twenty feet of the. shaft, but I  held,' fortunately, the' rope .of the  bucket, when the car fell down with  ,a'crash on the mine.-' With the aid ol  ,the rope I finally reached the surface  My, friends must have been killed  6y tho fall of the car, I imagined, but  then I reflected that, as they were  working a few feet from the shaft Id  the interior of the mine,* the fall of the  car could not have killed them. 1  lowered the bucket, and pulled it up  with all my strength. It was occupied  by three live men who reached the surface safely. A, great load of sorrow  was-lifted from-my heart when'1  grasped thoir ' brawny hands.

Saved by iwo Fumpkinss  THIS Is the season of the "JacV.-o"-'  lantern," and a story told by a  Chicago paper, although it dealB  with an incident which took'place  nearly two hundred years ago, Is therefore timely. It is the story of Prudence and Endurance Place, two girls;  ivho lived in the Cocheco Valley, New;  Hampshire.  .  At that time the country from Ports-  iiouth to Ossipoe was an unbroken wll-  lerness, and settlers were few. The  ^lace family lived ln a log house In a  small clearing. Indians occasionally  ���������nllod at the house, and Mr. Place al-  .vays treated them courteously, and  icvor sent them away empty-handed.  When Prudence and Endurance, twin  .isters, were fourteen years old, Mr.  ��������� nd Mrs. Place, with the younger chilli-en, went on a visit to Portsmouth,  eavlng the twins to keep house. Dur-  ng the first day of their home-keeping  he girls gathered the big yellow pump-  ;lns from tho field and laid them In a  .ile near the back door.  While resting from their work they  .mused themselves by cutting two  lideous Jack-o'-lanterns from large  .umpkins, each seeking to outdo the  ither in making the most grotesque  ace. They stuck the two heads on  loles, fixed candles inside, and made  ���������eady to astonish their father on his  ���������eturn by' showing the grinning faces  ���������.t   the  window.  While Endurance prepared the  ���������imple supper and set the house to  ighls for the night, Prudence went  mt to drive home the cow and the,  .heep. She had to go farther than  he had expected, and as she passed  .. clump of trees was startled to see*  hree Indians on the other side, talking  ���������arneslly, gesticulating, and pointing-  iow and then toward the log house ln  he  dealing.  The girl was alarmed. Turning back  vithout allowing herself to be seen,  he hurried homeward- and told her  ister what she had discovered.  "They have found out that father  .nd mother are away, and they are  oming here to steal, and perhaps to  -.ill us," the two snid to each other.  For a minute the frightened girls,  lid not know what to do. The Jack-  /-lanterns were lying in a corner of  - he room, and like an inspiration it  ame to Endurance that with these  lorrible, grinning l.'.ces they might  care away the Indians.  Near the back door was a pit, used  or storing potatoes, and now covered  vlth boards and brush. Taking their  fack-o'-lantei-ns, the two girls scram-  ded.Into the hole, and concealed the  entrance by drawing the boards and  ���������jiush back Into place.  After what seemed hours of waiting  \nd listening, they heard stealthy steps  about the house, which was ln total  darkness. Listening intently, they  heard the Indians in the garden, evidently searching, for them. .  . Now. was the ..moment .for action.  The candles were lighted in the Jack-  o'-lanterns, and the hideous heads  thrust up through the brush. The Indians 'waited for only one glimpse.  Filled with superstitious terror and  believing that - they ,had seen* devils,  they fled in such h.iste that Prudence  and Endurance,* when they ventured  from their place of y oucealment in the  morning, found a tomahawk and three  f>nffle feathers in tha garden-path. _  The spot was .e-er afterward regarded' by' the Iiuiians with superstitious awe.-'* Not -one of them was  over .known to npp. --ach the log house  nf the Places again.

Fertiliser should  be applied before grass starts, and the  spring rains will curry it down to the  roots and give tlie crop an early start,  which will greatly its-i-ist in enduring  drought in tlie simmier. Xo pasturage  or grass plot should be expected to give  crops without manure or fertilizer.  Wood nslics make an excellent fertilizer'  for grass, and a light application of nitrate of soda will give' good iomiIIs. If  cattle are given the run of a grass plot  when the grass is young tliey will do  more harm to the grass by trampling  than can result from anv other cause.

No food is'to be given in any c.iso  till the chicks are 2-1 hours old. For  tlie first meal' boil some eggs at, least  twenty minutes. Clear eggs from the  incubator will do. Mash these eggs very  fino and mix egg, shell and all with  bread crumbs equal parts, and feed n  little of this for the first day. I'or  the rest of the first week' give them  for morning meal some small oatmeal;  after that some small cracked wheat,  one meal a day of tlie egg and breadcrumbs, the rest of the ration for the  first week to'be tlie very small crushed  onts and wheat. From that time feed  once a day * a na-.li feed composed of  one-third each of bran, cornmeal and  ground oats, with a little meat in it. As  the chicks grow older add a little moro  meat each week, and do not forget a  little bone meal at all - times in the  mash, just a little for each "chick. Let  the rest of their ration be broken corn,  wheat and a little millet seed; if some  oatmeal'so much the better, but above-  all things compel them to hunt and dig  in (Cjl^aii (and sand 'for -all the grain,  food. - ��������� _ '        '*������������������������������������;  2.

What to do with thc unproductive  cows is a question tl it is puzzling many  farmers to-day. Much of the stock od  hand will not return the value of the  feed needed to ke<*p the animals. II  the poorer animals cf the herd are old  cows, which have pi>=sod their period of  usefulness for the d.'iry, I would advise  selling for what they will bring as second quality beef. Old dairy cows will  not return in their rnal value the cost  of tlio feed necessary to fatten them.  Heifers or cows in the prime of life  may pay for fattening. This depends on  the amount of feed *��������� hich must be purchased and used in t'-is way.  Homegrown corn aid cottonseed meal  are the most economical grains to use  in fattening. I would advise feeding  animals that arc bcirg fattened but little coarse fodder, and of this would use  thc poorer grades, such as second quality hay (tnd corn stov*r. but would feed  lilierally of grain Snr trom four to six  weeks, "nnd then sell-for what the animals will  bring.
