Borden on the Issues  of   the   Day.���������A   Large   and  Enthusiastic   Audience   Was  In Attendance.  Hon. K. Ij. Borden, leader uf the  Opposition in tliu Dominion "House,  und a distinguished piirty of eastern  gentlemen wlio nro aci'omp.'inyin*.'  him on his present trip to tliu \V.���������***.t.  spent Friday mul Saturday in this  city. On Kriday evening, under the  auspices of tlio Liberal-Conservative  Association of lievelstoke, a .puhlic  meeting was held in the opera house.  "When the meeting opened nl S o'clock,  there was ono of the largest audiences  assembled that ever greeted public  speakers in this city. ;.l. M. Scot.,  President of the Revelstoke Conservative Association, acted as chaiiman.  H. A. .Powell, cx-M.P. for Westmoreland, was thu lirst speaker introduced  to the audience, aiid he'recoived a most  hearty reception. Mr. Powell, in his  remarks, a full account of which the  Hnit.vr.1) regretsit is unable to make,  outlined the Liberal-Conservative  policy and compared it with that of  the Laurier government. He severely  scored the government on their  broken pledges, to the people and their  corrupt practices. He gave several  instances of the ��������� reckless expendil ui es  of' the" Laurier- government iu the.  eastern provinces, pointing out thai in  coiisequen-.e of tbat. very little money  had been expended in British Columbia. Mr. Powell also spoke vigorously  on the Chinese question and said that  his eyes had been opened to a great  extent in* regard   to  this  question   by  He said  .his'recent visit to the Coast  the. Liberal government , had done  nothing to remedy tbe evil of Chinese  immigrating-into this province and  was of opinion that steps, should at  once be taken to rid British Colunibin  of Chinese. , -       ,  Hon. R. L. Borden, the.leader of.the  Conservative- Party'* in Canada, .was  tlie next'speaker' introduced and -was  th'e recipiui?t'of of a most cordial and  enthusiastic reception from the large  audience present. Mr. Borden in his  remarks referred to the reason of his  visit to-the' west, which -was, one of  acquiring knowledge of-the "West and  becoming acquainted with its people  He went on to say : " AVe have come  from the east to learn something of  the needs and requirements of the  west. A parliamentary opposition  as you know, takes a certain part in  the government of the country. It  has certain duties ' to perforin in  Parliament as critics of thc Government, and it is thus onlv right and  fitting, that we, members of the  Conservative Opposition in tlie House  of. Commons, should , seek to know  something of this western eountry  which is every year becoming a more  and' more important factor in the  public'affaii'sof-Oauadai���������=���������A������������������"  We have come as members of the  Liberal-Conservative    Party, and   we  have" come'not only on   this   educational   mission ' for     the     benelit of  ourselves, but we have  come  also  for  the purpose of placing before you sit  various . meetings   . the   policy    and  principles of the Libsral-Conservative  Putty, which  are now,  save for  the  natural development   resulting from  the growth o'f this country,   the same  principles and policy  which  Sir John  Ar MacDonald laid down in 1S7S.  '"Now; I hear throughout the country,  and I.heat in.the West.here, the story  that    there    is    really   no   difference  between political parties in the country  so far as policy-is   concerned   at   the  present time, and I wi������nt to say a wonl  to yo tonight about that. If there isjat  the present time no difference between  the Liberal Conservative party aud the  Liheral party.is it simply a  question  between   those   two   parties   in    thi.-  country as to which   shall   begin   and  which shall shape it.    It  is  simply   a  question of the administration   of  the  public affairs of this country   without  any regard to principle or policy. Well  Mr. Chairman, ladies  and  gentlemen,  we do not so regard it.    I will take up  in the first place the  question-- of  the  fiscal policy of this country, and I  will  propound to you this proposition, that  the Liberal Conservativeparty's policy  in Canada today is a plain and distinct  policy, upon which it is prepared to go  to the people of this country,  whether  in the Maritime Provinces, whether in  Ontario,   whether   in     Manitoba,    or  \vhwther it is in this great province  of  British Columbia.     (Applause.)    It   is  not a policy for onesectiunof the people.  It, is not a policy for one class of pro*  diicers.    It is not a policy for one   part  of the country alone, lint it is a policy  and it   is  a principle   which   we   are  prepared to advocate in any and every  province of Canada,   and   one/ vhich  onr fri?nds in other public posit' ons in  the different provinces of C.m.-u .1  propound, and put forward as the-, policy  of the country.   I ask you, and  I ask  any Liberal in lhis hall tonight,  .wlii'iber thai can be --aid of I he Liberal  p.uly. If you will lake t he delriles in  I he Ilou>e of Cumnion*..

Canadians must  havu a tariff Ui'siiit themselves. If '23  per cent is not enough, speaking for  myself alone. 1 would have no hesita'  i ion iu raising it io '30 per cent, or *J*0  per cent."  .Sir Richard Cartwright says:  " Human nature, being as it is, it is  almost impossible for a "govern merit, to  be a protectionist and escape buing  corrupt. " While f think protection  and corruption are practically insep.  .'liable, I likewise believe for my part  that protection and true freedom are  all but absolutely incorruptible." Now  .Sir Wilfrid Laurier has given his  i.leas to the same effect in the House  of Commons. Mr. Sifton recently has  said that Mr. Tarte speaks only for  himself; that it.is only a small portion  of the Liheral party that is in favor of  free trade,",'ind that he, Mr. Sifton.will  see to it that thu people of the West  are not to be subject to any of his  views, and that no change of tariff will  be made in tbe present government.  Now, Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen, I submit to, you, as to whether  a party that puts forth such views to  the country, of such'.a character can be  said to have* any real ��������� character -with'  regard to the policy of the country  today. It-is true that Liberal speakers  will tell you that tariff does contain  protection, but I - say if Canadian  industry is to be protected it should be  based upon principle, and should not  be the result of* an accident���������a tariff  lhat is not made by Mr. Tarte on one  hand and Sir Richard Cartwright on  the other hand, and it is to be based  upon the true principle of the interest  of this country.  _ The balance of ,the report nf the  iiictinir will appear in the next issue  of the Herald.  AT FIELD  An Italian * Shoots and Kills a  man named Gordon, Tuesday  Morning���������Murderer Arrested  " and Confined in Golden Gaol.  Word was received in town yester"  day that a inurderhiid been committed  at, Field early on Tuesday morning,  and on enquiry by the lliJKAi.u the  report was found to be correct. It  appears that a Scotchman named  Cordon, and an Italian named Dur*  rant, both employed in 13, Bain's  bridge crew at Field, were having  apparently a friendly scuffle just  before 7 o'clock on Tuesday morning,  whon, without.-a moment's warning,  the Italian drew a revolver and shot  Gordon in the breast, from the effects  of which he died an hour later. The  murderer was * captured by the men  immediately after the shooting.  Sheriff Redgrave of Golden was tele*  graphed for .and came over to Field  and took the prisoner to Golden where  he is now imprisoned awaiting trial.  Union Special Services  In the Methodist Church last Sunday  morning Rev. Mr. Kerby preached on  "Tlie Gift of ' the Spirit." basing the  sermon on Luke xi. and 13. Tbe sermon deald with 'four propositions, 1.  Tbe universal hunger ot the soul. 2.  .Man's distinct and definite need of  God. i-i. God's fatherhood, the pledge  that this need will be met. 4. The gift  of the Spirit, which means the fulfillment of the des'uesof God the father  to man, may be had for tbe asking.  The sermon was followed by an im*  pressive after service iu which many  bore testimony to the good the meetings bad already done.  At the men's, meeting at, 4 p. m. a  large number of men responded to the  call for "Men Only.'' Mr. Kerby's  address on "Tbe Artificial Alan." was  listened to with closest .litemion.. He  dealt with several types of the artificial  man. Tbe tailor- made man, or the  contrast of clothes versus character.  The money made ni-in or the contrast  of cash vei'Mis.'thlii'iicU'r.- -The. college  math".' man or t he contrast of culture  versus clviracti-r.

The society made  man or the contrast of class versus  character and finally the Christ made  made or the leal genuine character.  On Sunday evening the capacity of  the opera house, was taxed to accommodate the congregation which  gathered, all denominations were  represented, and there was much  enthusiasm. Tbe music was furnished  by a union choir and Messrs. Turk and  Kerby sang two'duetts. ', Mr. Turk  was the preacher for the evening, and  his subject was "Choosing Sides,"  based on lix. .31.20. "Who is on tho  Lords side." Ho showed that as at  Sinai so today there are two sides, and  urged all his hearers to come ovor on  the Lords ���������Aide and stand and fight  against evil in every form.

Wilson, Leader.  The Conservative convention, which  opened iu this city on Friday morning,  closed its labors on Saturday evening.  Two bundled and ten delegatus were  represented, uilher in person or bj  proxy. Mr. Borden, M.P., the Leadei  of t.he Conservative Opposition in the  Dominion House of Commons, weie  present at most of the sessions of the  Convention, together with his col-  le.iguesi, who aie visiting the Province,  and took much interest in the  proceedings.  Besides the platform, tbe subjects  vvbich excited the most interest among  the delegates was the question' of  introducing "party lines" into Pro  vincial politics, and that of the  selection of. a leader. As is well  known, although the LiberalOonser.  vative Convention in 1899 decided that  "party lines" should be introduced,  and that view was reaHirmed in 1000,  it was not generally followed in lh*  election campaign in the latter year  Many .of* those who regarded the  proposal with disfavor two years ago,  bad stiice been led to change theii  opinion by the course of events and  the result was the adoption by the  Convention of the following resolution  with only one or two dissentents :  "That, in the opinion of this Conven  tion, tbe stability of government and  beneficial legislation can best.- b<:  secured-by the introduction of party  politics iu local elections, and that such"  a policy be adopted." -  Mr. Charles Wilson, K.C., having  tendered his resignation as Leader,  some argument was advanced that th'e  Leadership be confined to* the candi  dates ot the party who received seats  in the House.' Occasion was taken by  Hon. Colonel Prior, Mr. R. McBride,  arid Mr. P.*' Carter Gotten to declare  their personal position. After full  discussion it was settled, that the  Leadership should be determined by  tbe Convention. It was unanimously  decided amidst a scene of great  enthusiasm, that the resignation of  Mr. Wilson should not be accepted. -  The Convention was then addressed  by Mr. Wilson, and on the invitation  of the President. Mr. Borden said a  few words, felicitating the delegates  upon the eloquence,'enthusiasm, and  unity which prevailed. The evening  session was taken up"with matters of  construction and organization.  A Committee' on Resolutions was  appointed on Friday, which reported  .on Saturday. Its recommendations  were considered and discussed, and the  following platform was unanimously  adopted :  1-���������That this Convention reaffirms  the policy of the Party in matters of  Provincial roads and trails; the owner-  ship and,l^ntTol"_of"Tailivays audthe  development of the agricultural resources of the Province as laid down  in the Platform adopted in October,  ���������1890, which is as follows :  To actively aid in the construction  of trails throughout the undeveloped  portions of the Province aod the  building of Provincial trunk roads of  public necessity.  To udopt.the principle of Government ownership of railways in so far  as the circumstances of the Province  will admit, and the adoption of the  principle that no bonus should be  granted to any railway company which  does not give the Government of the  Province control of rates over lines  bonused, together with the option of  pure base.  To actively assist by State aid in the  development of the agricultural resources of.the Province.  2.���������Th-it in the meantime and until  the railway policy above set forth can  be accomplished, a general Railway  Act he passed, giving freedom to construct railways under certain approved  regulations, analagous to the system  that has resulted in such extensive  railway construction in the United  Suites, with so much advantage to  trade and commerce.  3.���������That to encourage the mining  industry, the taxation of metalliferous  mines should be on the basis of a percentage of the net profits.  4.���������That the Government ownership  of telephone systerosshould be brought  about as a first step in the acquisition  of public utilities.  5.���������That a portion of every coal area  hereafter to be disposed of, should b������  reserved from sale or lease, so tbat  stata-owned mines may easily he  accessible, if their operation become  necessary or advisable.  0.���������That in the pulp land leases  provision should be made for reforesting and that steps should he taken for  the general preservation of forests by  guarding against the wasteful destruction of tiinber.  ".���������That the Legislature nnd Government of the Province sheuld  persevere In the effort to secure the  exclusion of Asiatic labor.  8.���������That the matter of better term*  in the way of subsidy and appropriations for the Piovince should be  vigorously pressed upon the Dominion  Government.  0.���������That the silver.lead industries of  the Province be fostered, and encouraged by the imposition of increased  Custom's* duties on lead and "lead  products' imported into Canada, and  that the Conservative members of th*  Dominion House be urged to support  any ��������� motion introduced for such e>  purpose.   .  10.���������That as industrial dispute*  almost invariably result in great lose  and injury both to the parties directly  concerned and to the public legislation  should be passed to provide means for  an amicable adjustment of such disputes between einployets and employees.  11���������Tbat ic is advisable to foster the  manufacture of the raw products of  the Province' within the Province aa  far,'as practicable by means of taxation  on the said raw products, subject to  rebate of the same in whole or in part  when manufactured in British Columbia. _  At Saturday evening's meeting m  resolution was passed ' expressing  confidence in Mr. Borden, leader of the.  Conservative party, assuring him of  hearty' support and cooperation, and  thanking him aiid his party for their .  attendance at the Convention.  The* constitution of the party was  considered and adopted. <���������   The  election Jof officer* resulted aa .  follows': ~'r '*  " '' -  . Honorary    President,    Mr.   B.

Up over the Cuernavaca railroad  comes now tho military detuohment  lately sent Into Guerrero. The little  company cats dinner by tha Cuernavaca station. Five lank soldiers ln sandals  ���������it at a distance on the ground; and,  whereas all the others are gay, these  live sit; depressed with gloom, recalling a strange thing.  The heart of Guerrero, state of golden  miracles, Is not yet opened to the  world. Mountains and mysteries shut  lt away from modern life. Away down  ���������outh, two hundred miles from the  railroad, Is the town of Three Sandals.  Into It came, five years ago, an "American" named Stlrge. He 'bought a  mine and worked It all alone, and they  eaid he stacked up gold In an adobe  house as high; as the roof. He was  tall, with silken beard, feline grace,  mild, deep, unreal eyes. Gold turned  hia head; gold made his house an empire, Three Sandals the center of the  universe. He dreamed of severing this  southern land from Mexico, and insane  Ideas of a monarchy came to him.  The chief of police was fat and flabby, and often full of pulque. He lived  In a large house on the plaza by the  palms. His sister was a beauty, aged  nineteen, named Otllia.  "Otllia, I call you. a failure," complained the chief, drinking three quarts  of pulque in the pat^o, while she  lounged languid under those enormous  yellow flowers called "cups-of-g'old."  "Manjarrez killed himself for you.  Ellas slew Negrete for you. Ollvares  robbed the hacienda to buy you a  ruby, and was shot. The governor at  Chllpancingo made a fool of himself  for you. Bah! what good Is all this if  you cannot find out the revolutionary  schemes of that cursed 'American' and  save my reputation? I want to kill  him, and, alas!"���������with a comic shrug,  spilling pulque���������"there Is no way."  "Hang hiin by his sweet, soft "beard,  Pepe, my love," said she,With a smile.  "But!���������the shadow of an excuse! I  know he plots, but never a finger can  I lay on him. Make him tall in love  with you, witch; worm It out of him.  Our reputation is at stake."  She dreamed, lying there graceful,  beautiful, mischief In her languid eye.  *'I will," she said, and plucked a cup-  of-gold, and burled her flushed face  therein.  'She was shrewd. She was not of the  flashing type. She was leisurely reserved. She had watched Stlrge for  months. She knew him slightly; she  had: smiled at him. Into her deep  thinking came the knowledge that  there was something of the mystic ln  his nature; that mystery might win  him where. other means would; fall.  ���������Every evening at six she wrapped  herself in a black rebozo so that eyes  glowing and portions of a face artificially pale were seen beneath lustrous  hair. Then, solemn, sad,"' a moving  statue, she walked to and fro, to and  fro, .before the "American's" house.  When he stood in the door stroking his  silken beard, and gazed on her, she  nodded slowly, as though unseeing, and  sighed a heavy sigh. At dusk, having  walked to and fro for an hour, she  sighed more heavily still and went  away.  After one week of this mystery, the  form of Otllia began to haunt him.  She was very beautiful, said he. There  were lurking in her eyes vast dreams,  restlessness, towering ambitions ��������� ah!  like his own, like his own. He tossed  Jn the i night, somehow drawn to her.  AfteF"alir_iwas_it"^good"-to-be���������lonely ?-  With such .a, mate to' what7 grand-  heights might any. man not soar! So,  from seeing her by chance, he came to  watch for her, and when she passed  his hand was frozen on his beard, or  burned with fire that ran in all his  blood. Meanwhile a plan to overthrow  the town's authorities, to gather men,  to march on Chllpancingo, took form.  Two officer.*, nearest the person of the  chief were Stlrge's fellow-plotters.  On the eighth evening of this moving to and fro, wrapped in mystery,  she let her rebozo wave" a little wider  open. He was devouring her with his  eyes. He was like a god, strong and  full of grace. Her sweet lips wer._-  plnklsh; her neck was white. She  sighed, but she looked on him with  quick flames bursting from her eyei.  The street was lonely. He stepped out  and laid his exceedingly long slim fingers on her arm. She paused, and they  gazed at one another.  "Otilla, some dread thing haunts  you."  "Tes, senor." Her eyes were down.  "Otilla, a great weight0Is on you. I  am one used to speaking out. When  God puts fire^lnto a man's heart, th������*  man should never hide lt, lest it burn  him. Otilla, I seem to see myself ln  your eyes., Heart of my* heart, I love  you."  She, exceedingly white,'raised her  eyes Just enough to see his chin; and,  with a. startling mixture of mischief  and emotional upheaving,^she .remembered her words: "Hang him by his  swept.* soft beard, Pepe."  He kissed her as the dusk name. She  went home, bewildered to find that her  eyes seemed blind. When she put her  rebozo.t,o them It came awa.y wet. Sho.  walked statellly, looking at all the low,  barred windows^ She entered her  brother's patio and sat down under the  great cups-of-gold. At supper she could  not eat. In bed she could not sleep. In  the night her little bare feet' went  softly up and down the room. In the  morning she was afraid of hcrs-ilf.  something within her heart scared her  so.  The love passage thus began, and  Otilla, in winning him. had lost herself. Ah, his god-like form,, his foreign strength, his whltencs.*.! Sho  loved   him.    The  same   old   difference  >etw<_*eri sn# tunny loves cnaracicnzea  ihese. The man's vast schemes were  mightier than his love. The woman's  ove was mightier than all else.  At  the edge of the town was a deserted   ulamoda   full   ot    mango-trees.  Hero  were aged stone benches seldom  jsed.    Here  the shade  was like  dusk  it noon,  like midnight at dusk.   Here  lhey   met,   evening after  evening,   sbe  tailing panting into his arms, he gazing at her scarcely seen face with hungry eyes.  "You are Incarnate truth," he said.  Blood  flew   to her face;    her  brain  seemed drowned.   "Yet���������'I was false."  "What bad jest Is this?"  She lay trembling.    Somehow a fear  entered him.  "Speak!" he cried, almost lotting her  from bim.  "I���������I plotted against you."  "How���������It Is a He!"      '���������*���������  "Oh, my soul's soul!    I set about to  win you, Instigated by my brother, that  I might learn your plan of revolution,  and   conquer   you   and   bring   you   to  death.    Crush  me  If   you   must���������thu3  have   I   lost    myself���������thus    have   you  overthrown me!"  He let her fall -on tlie old stone  bench. The shade of the mango-trees  was deep. He stood a little way off.  tall and still, and looked at her. Just  here the revulsion came; for gold had  made him insane with dreams. His  love was second to his plot. Distrust  sank deep ln him. He felt himself betrayed. Cold drops were 'on his forehead. He had walked as ln a deep gold  mist. He gazed on this girl. She wa3  incarnate treason; his love for her was  turned to fear.  ; Wounded, ignoble, but grand with  rage, he turned, and sho was left alone.  After that he smiled,at her no more,  nor looked at her. He dared not flee;  that were confession and meant death.  He dared not prolong delay.  She had groped her way home from  the mango-grove. Though she was  sweet and leisurely and shrewd, she  had In her that fuel which, touched  with flre, burns on to vengeance. But  she was sad; and lt seemed some second self mercilessly drove her on to the  revenge which her better nature did  not want. She wept, and grew thin in  three days miraculously.; Sometimes  she Joked with herself even yet, ln  manner ghastly. "Hang; him by his  sweet, soft beard," murmured she In  bad night-dreams; and she saw his  head, In visions, hung thus, horrible.  The flrst night of their ������������������'. estrangement, the fat, pulque-drinking: chief  found letters at the home of one of his  subordinates. They Incriminated the  subordinate, who' was arrested and put  in the little adobe jail across the plaza.  The chief strove In vain to find one  word of those epistles which might  give ground for the arrest of Stlrge.  But the "American's" tracks were yet  c'overed. The chief shed maudlin tears  of exasperation.  The third night Otilla came knocking at his door at ten o'clock. She was  admitted; the chief sitting ln a gown  on his bed's edge.  "This subordinate, the arrested one,"  said she, steady-voiced, "when is he to  be shot?"  '���������:' "At sunrise. I am writing the order  for the Voldlers who will*'arrive tonight.    Oh, you failure!"  "Come, keep these railings for another. Give me the order, tout leave  the name a blank."  ���������Her manner was* cold, stern, and  she was pale and sick.  "Why?" he growled.  She put one hand on the foot-board  and leaned close to him. "I may."do  thnt which your secret soul longs for,"  whispered she. "Do I not know.���������*that  it Is his gold that you want? Think!  They say it is stacked to the roof."  "But I should be called to account  for a baseless execution, you fool!"  "I have a fading ink. I write the  name and sh'ow, it to the captain.'������������������'"���������He  executes the order. The ink fades. You  substitute the rightful, name,' and on  the captain lies the blame."  He" fell back in bed with a choking  noise.  "It's on the table," he said, weakly.  She brought him the blank. He filled  it out���������all save the name. She left  him staring stupidly at her, and presently heard him call 'for three more  __lua_rt5_o������_pulque.  Otij'.a was no*; so virr_fInou"s~a:r-3he-  seemed. She was tottering. She had  scarce an idea* that. she should execute so dreadful a plan. It was the  warring between those two differing  selves   of   hers   that  drove   her  on   to  make these preparations. In' these ugly  hours, too, was the playfulness yet  alive ln her. She thought that to  threaten him, ln play, with this ghastly thing would be sweet mischief's way  to ���������win him back. If he would but smile  at her once more! And deep ln her the  oth������r seir said:  "Kill!"  She could not rest. She wrapped  hers'.clf In . her . black rebozo and* wont  out. She walkfd by the Jail and paused  and s-canned It, The plaza was dark  and the palms rustled. She went down  a street and sadly walked to and fro  before the "American's" houso, recalling the <!������y "no kl.-sod her as the dusk  came. At times hate rav<_d in her.  Memory drew her at length to thc* Alameda, and beyond lt. Under these trees  had she rested In his arms. Beyond,  where tho fields were rocky���������yond������r In  that, lonely spot beside7 the gorge���������was  the tall iron post to which criminals  were chained to be shot. Out of the  mango-grove, out of the days of love,  she might lead him here to this iron  post���������and her fingers held tho paper of  death. The night was very black. Shfl  shuddered.  Suddenly she heard a crying out  Women and men were shouting b.ic'.t  there by the town.. She 'walked in that  direction. The shouting was Increased,  nnd there was a scurrying about near  two thatcji***d  huts.  "Tho ants!' The warrior ants!"' wa..*!  the shout.  Shr* f.imp nearer to a hut. yten in  sandn's went leaping with torches.  There was a strange crackling in tho  ���������.hn t<*lu'i-t. Behold! the Kroijnd wns  blatk with marching millions. Scorpions, lizards,' spiders, ran terror-  stricken from that army. The tha.tches  were being pierced hy thousands? of  jnseen marauders. . Human 'beings,  seizing' all things of value, lied crying  mto the night.  These tints march'In terrible battal-  .ons. There Is no way known to man  :o stop them. Thoy have their officers.  They nelect a goal. On they come, and  Lil things flee before. A house Is overrun.    Every  living  thing,   or  piece "of  food, vanishes.   'All other Insects    aro  devoured.      Men   must   absent   themselves till the ants depart.   Returning,  all Is bare.    The army haa conquered,  devastated, passed on.  Fascinated, she stood With some sandaled laborers, who, on the outskirts of  this scene of ruin, watched it by torchlight.  "Where  will   they   go   next?"   cried  one.  "Yonder,   yonder,   in   this   direction.  See! The vanguard Is already advancing thither!"  She  beheld     the     leading  (battalion  forming  In   fours/and  heading  away  across the barren field.   She looked up  A strange chill ran over her.   That Iron  post,  yonder  by  tho  gorge,   stood  In  their track.  At  midnight    she    passed    Surge's  house, and he was going ln.   His door  was open and a faint light shone on  him.    She paused, where he saw hor.  She looked at him, with hor soul In her  eyes,   and  he   spurned  her.    Hor  bad  self flamed  up.    Sho ran  away,  wild  with hate.   She stood a moment under  the  palms,  and  there a  diabolic purpose came to hor.  It had  long been a custom  In  this  district  to  lead   the  culprit   out  very ^  early In the morning. Chained in darkness to the post he was confronted by  a priest.   The black hours dragged on,  giving  the  criminal  that most solemn  season  for   repentance.    Five   soldiers  and  an   ollicer  were  stationed    near.  When   dawn   came,   and     they   could  clearly see, they flred.  At  eleven   o'clock a  detachment  of  soldiers had arrived.   About one, Otllia  came to the door of the decrepit barracks.  The captain had orders to obey  the chief of police.    She came to him  and said:  "My ibrbther Is 111.   His servants are sitting with him.   So he sent  me with this order."  She  disappeared.    The  captain  read  the  command  for  the  immediate  execution of one: Stlrge, "American."  A little later the unfortunate Anglo-  Saxon   schemer -was    seized     in   bed.  They . put   on   him   clothes   somewhat  similar   to  those  worn  by  runners  In  athletic   contests,   so    that    he     was  nearly  naked,    in the night * they led  him   out   and   on   through   the   black  mango-grove.   : In   that  stony  field  by  the gorge they chained him to a post.  A   priest   came,     was    received   with  haughty    contempt,  and'went  away.  Well for the soldiers that they stood_  ten yards to the gorge's left.   Thus did  the flank  of  that  black \unseen . army  pass them by unharmed. ' **  Silence,  darkness, weird  waiting for  the dawn.   The. gold-maddened dreamer was a stoic.   He was as Iron as the  post and chain.   Out ot the night shadows a "ghost-voice called from yonder  in the rocks:  "I can free you.   I can yet tree you.*  Tell  me  once more you love me, and  life is yours.".  He .did not answer.   The soldiers believed  her crazy,  or thought  that  St.  Mary, had come down.  "It is I who brought j-ou here.   Give  me your heart,  and it is I who shall  take you away."  The   night   was   yet  black.   .He  did  not answer.   What stole, beyond man's  dreams of stoicism, was that man of  Anglo-Saxon blood!    Ay,  Indians can  endure.    Savages: can  suffer and emit  no sound.    But -of,all,God's creatures  there is none so strong as the Anglo-  Saxon steeled to bear.  There was wild war In her.   She had  meant  to  torment - him. - She  had   not  meant that he be shot.   She could never consent to kill, her better self was  too timid. But his spurning had crazed  her.    At   dawn,   she   thought,   sinking  down on the rocks, she would confess  the substituted name, release him. But  the second self joyed .in  torture.    The  dawn   came. ' Yes,  the  chained "man's  face began to show a little, white, out  of the shadow.   The captain formed his  ; five men and bade them be ready.   So  the day thus slowly coming, they stood  waiting   till   they   could   see;   and   he  stood   yonder,   his. arms   chained  high  up on the post.  The minutes went by. The scene was  wild   and   rocky.    The   east  began   to  faintly   glow.     Strange���������strange.     As  he  appeared' yet  a little  clearer���������how-  still   he   stood���������how   white.      Merciful  hand   of Mary!   is  that hanging creature there a human .being?  ______.A_Iml"- commanded the captain.  The "guns'were raised. ~  "A minute* more and It will be light  enough to see."  They waited. The light came rapidly. Behold! Suddenly the: culprit  seemed to start fully from the shadows. A second more and they would  fire.  The guns fell. The men staggered.  Horror chilled them. The face that  looked on them was the face of a skull.  , The body that hung there by tho chair,  was a clean, white skeleton; So terrible Is tho d������-astatIon of the warrior  ant.

How "Labby" Got a Dinner.  ������������������Jii-i  A  READY .wit Is often of moi-e  value to a man In a tight  corner than any other en-  dowment, and sometimes 11  neutralizes the consequences of real defects of character. This  Is illustrated in an Intimate story ol  the Ute of Henry Labouchere, the by no  .means admirable English politician  and Journalist, related Jn the "People'  iby Joseph Hatton.' trnibouchere was an  a young man ln the diplomatic service,  and was sent/by the British Minister  "to look after iSome Irish .patriots" at  Boston. Taking up his quarters at a  small hotel, he entered his name as  Smith. If you have an idle hour ln almost any American olty you can get  Into a game of "draw," or anything  else In the way of gamble. In the  evening of his arrival the attache Incontinently entered a gaming establishment, und lost all tho money he had  except half a dollar. Then bo .went to  bed, satisfied, no doubt, with his prowess. The next day the 'bailiffs seized  on the hotel for debt, and all guests  were requested to pay thoir bills and  take away their luggage. Labouchere  could not pay, and could not, therefore, take away his luggage. All he  could do was to write to Washington  for a remittance, and wait two days  for Jts arrival. The flrst -day ho walked  about and spent h.ls half dollar on food.  It was summer, nnd he slept on a  ���������bench on the common. In the morning  he went to the bay to have a wash. Independent of all the cares and troubles  of civilization. But he had nothing  -with: which to buy himself a breakfast. Toward���������'��������� evening he grew very  hungry, ana entered a restaurant and  ordered dinner, without any clear Idea  of how he was to pay the bill, except  to leave his coat In pledge.  And here comes In an example of  young Labouchere's luck, tempered by  a".'(ready wit. As.the hungry and, for  the time 'being, penniless attache ate  lhis dinner he observed that' all the  waiters were Irishmen, and that they  not only continually stared at him, but  were evidently discussing him with one  another. A guilty conscience Induced  him to think that this: was because of  bis impecunious appearance, and, that  they were making calculations as lo  the value of his clothes. At .last one of  them approached their .anxious customer and: In a low voice said: "I beg  your pardon, sir; are' you the patriot  Meagher?" Now, this patriot was a  gentleman who had aided Smith  O'Brien in his Irish rising, and had  ibeen : sent to Australia, and had escaped thence to the United States.  "It was my business to'look after patriots,": said Labouchere, telling the  story'i "so I put my finger .before my  ���������lips 'and said 'Hush!' at the' same time  casting my.eyes up to the celling, as  though I saw a vision of Erin beckoning mc. It was felt at once that: I was  Meagher. The : choicest viands were  .placed : before me, and most excellent  wine. When I had done Justice to all  the good things I went to the,bar, and  boldly asked for my till. The proprietor, also an Irishman, said: 'From  a man llkeyou, who has suffered 4n. the  good cause, I can take no .money; allow  a brother patriot to shake hands with  you.' I allowed him.": He further allowed the waiters to shake hands with  him, and then stalked forth, iwlth the  stern; resolved, but somewhat condescending, air which he had seenias-  sumed by patriots .in exile. Again he  slept on the common; again he ..washed  in the bay. Then he went to the post-  office, got his money and breakfasted.  I  The Duke's Grief.  A Defective Test.  One   of   thoie  amiable   persons   who  gives   gratuitous   advice   to" the   prew  concerning  marriages  has  undertaken  to  tell, .young, fellows  how  to Judge  If  the disposition of a girl is JustvWhat It  ought7 to be.   Here Is one of the tests:  "Try to ascertain  how she wakes up.  however   suddenly     roused     from   her  sleep," etc.    What the young candidate  for matrimony Is not told Is how he Is  going to employ the  test  with safety,  not   to   speak   of   strict   proprl^y.     A  ! youn^ lady's sleeping-apartment is not  j accessible to youmj men  as a rule,  at  '.least    In    well-regulated     households.

Perhaps  wxt Lime the sage dilates on  I these   matters  he  will   give   us  BOrne-  thlng easier.  "It  was  night,"   says  Rev.   Clement  Povnder, "when,   after   the  Battle  of  Waterloo, the Duke of Wellington lay  down.   He had not found time somiich  as  to  wash   his   face   or   hands;   but,  overcome with fatigue, threw himself,  after finishing his despatches,  on; his  bed.   He had seen: Dr. Hume, and desired him to come punctually at seven  In  the  morning with  his  report;   and  the latter, who took no rest, but spent  the night beside the '.wounded,., came at  the   hour   appointed.    He   knocked   at  the Duke's door, but received no  answer; he lifted the latch,'and looked ln.  but, seeing him',In a sound sleep,  ho  could not And It ln,hls heart to awako  -him.���������=By^_andi-by,__.howe.v_er>__reilecting_]  on the Importance of time to a man In  the  Duke's  high  situation,  and   being  well aware that it formed no article in'  His Grace's code to prefer personal Indulgence of any sort to public duty, he  proceeded  to   the  bedside   and   roused  the  sleeper.    The Duke sat  up  In  his  bed,   his  face  unshaven,   and,7 covered  with   the; dust   and   smoke   of   yesterday's    battle,     presenting     a    rath'ei  strange appearance; yet his senses were  collected, and ln a moment he desired  Hume to make his statement.   The latter   produced   his   list,   and   began   to  read; but whon, as he proceeded, numo  after  name  came out���������this  as  of  ono  dead,   tho  other  ns  of  one  dying���������his  voice   failed   him,   and,   looking  up  be  saw that the Duke was In.an agony of  grief;   the   tsars   chased������������������ one   another  from   Ills   Grace's   eyes,   making   deep  visible  furrows  In  the soldier's  blackened cheeks, and at Inst he threw himself back7 upon his pillow and groaned  aloud.    'It has been  my  good   fortune  never   to*lose   a   battle;   yet    all   this  glory," cried he, 'can by no means compensate for so great a loss of friends.  What   victory   Is   not  too  dearly   purchased at such a cost!'"  Literary Pretense.  F all of ua who ln these latter days  have t.ir.iulred some repute ot  knowledge of literature were to be  tried before a jury of real experts,  it is to be feared, writes Guy Carleton Lee. that the vast majority of us  would win th'ls sentence: ��������� "Guilty of  having gained a reputation under false  pretenses." Let .us be candid with ourselves, since the confidence'need go no  further. Have we really made ourselves familiar with English masterpieces? It were damning to confess Ignorance ot Chaucer, for example; let  all who have read the "Canterbury  Tales," to take but a portion of his  works., mentally hold up their hands.  The resulting show might not carry an  election ln the smallest election precinct.  Perhaps we have taken an unfair  test. Chnucer is dilllcult rending to  any but tbe scholar, and the quaint old  words'are apt to Interfere with any  pleasure In the rending. Let us return,  then, to writers ot a later dato, whose  language holds no obscurity of form.  How many of us have, read "The Faery  Queen" from beginning to end? Perhaps some few, to whom literature Is n  profession, not a recreation; but of thc  rest of us who so glibly discuss Edmund' Spenser* and bis Influence upon  poetry, and who talk learnedly of the  Spenserian stanza, the vast majority  are utter strangers to the works of the  poet thoy praise.  The early dramatists, again. Most of  us are vaguely aware that Marlowe  wrote plays called "The Jew of Malta"  and "Tamburlalne," and a dramatic  poem entitled "Doctor Faustus;" but  our knowledge of him stops there. Mas-  singer, because of the occasional presentation on the stage of "A New Way  to Pay Old Debts," Is more familiar to  us; but our acquaintance with him is  strictly limited to thaf one work. Beaumont and Fletcher are by: name "familiar In the mouth as "household  words," but some of us would be sorely puzzled to quote a line written by  these old collaborators. Ben Jonson.we  know by his epitaph; but by his works  we know, him not. Shakespeare���������ah!  there we are safe; all of ,us have read  him. Have we so? Along comes some  villainous prier-rlnto-secret-places and  questions us of our knowledge of, the  "Sonnets;'' and straightway we wish  that we were dead or;that Shakespeare  had never been born to write twaddle  that Is called literature.       '  Dryden, again. He is sometimes  talked ��������� of nowadays; Is he' ever read'.'  And the dramatists of the Restoration  ���������Wycherly, Congreve; Farquhar, "Van-  brugh?

Is Pope ever read nowadays? Who of us can ever give a  list of his principal poems? It would  be a good wager that ninety-nine, out  of a hundred among us, being asked to  do this, would promptly exclaim: "The  Essay on Mari," and then continue:  "Er���������and���������'The Rape of the Lock," you  know���������and���������h'm���������oh,' well, and" all7 the  rest."  ,Cowper���������-didn't: he..'��������� write*���������.:"���������.something  about a sofa?

And then the attorney for the defence, in despair at our admissions, yet  still fighting his case, asks us to name  the works with which wc are familiar,  that we may show that our reputation  is deserved. -Sure of our ground, we go  trippingly on with a list of the "Trilbies." the "Ladles of Quality," the  "Richard Carvels," ,the-^but here oui  attorney hastily bids us leave tho  stand, and submits the case without  argument.

M  INISTER    WU     TING-FANG,,  the   ambassador  of  China to*  the United States, was one of  a number of speakers at the  '..

"The young wife hurried to the king i  tnd  poured  the sad  tale of: her woes >  into his ear, not forgetting to emphasize her husband's allusion to him.  "The ;youth went to his father and  told what:he had said about the king.  "The general was Instantly overwhelmed with the gravest apprehensions,- fearing the vengeance of the  king when he should learn of the treasonable utterances of.the young man,  .md he made great haste to call upon  his sovereign "to forestall punishment.  "The king listened to all the general  had to say, and then, in a fatherly way  -ind with a twinkle in his eye, remarked: ���������  " 'That's    all    right,  ' general.

The  rest of the way���������and lt must have been  four miles ln all*��������� was straight as a  Roman road, till at last we came to tall  stone gate-posts, set In a high brick  wall. ' We turned in between, and I*  looked out eagerly, half expecting, after all the precautions for secrecy  Which had been taken, that Ishould be  requested or more forcibly Induoed to  Bit back from the window. But I was  allowed to do as I pleased.  We passed a lodge whloh, however,  Showed no lights; drove along a winding avenue that ascended for a little,  and then abruptly dipped. With this,  *we oame suddenly ln sight of a house���������  a big square building with 'towers, that  ���������was silhouetted against the sky. Most  of the windows were dark, -but-1-'could  eee .two on ithe ground lloor that shone  dimly, and there was a light over the  door at which we presently drew up.  By the,Atime that the groom had  sprung down from his seat to let us out  of the carriage ,the house door was  opened, and -ibe illumination from  within showed my curious, observant  eyes that the livery of coachman and  groom was identical with tliat worn by  \ the pair who had driven us from the  Marble Arch to Waterloo Station.  An elderlybutler received us .with the  air of -one who awaited .an expected  event; and as I entered the house I  racked my brain -to -comprehend ~why I  should be feeling as" if I "had lived  ���������^through exactly this episode before.  I had never visited this"house, or'any'  other house like it, as^taf as I could  remember, yet I had the impression of  having seen it (not In a former state of  existence, as happens sometimes in  one's experience), but not so very long  ago.  We passed through a big conservatory, not too well kept, into a square  Shall with a high, ornate celling supported by round pillars of ugly reddish  marble, the walls hung with many life-  sized portraits of men and women In  ������he dress of bygone periods. Where  lhad I seen them all? And why did I  turn expectantly, searching for a wide  staircase with shallow marble steps, to  find" it.Mn~the precise-position where I  ���������had looked? I began to feel as if .1 were  in a dream. 'At Uie foot ot the staircase stood a" tall gra-dfather clock with  a.*big* white'face, *very convex. I saw  that it was half-pa*--- ten.    '  "Would you like to go immediately  to- your room?" ask^d the woman in  black, whose 'bright eyes.regarded me  iwlbh keen attention.   "Or "  "I ehouid.'llke the- ixplanaition you  promised," I interrupted.  "You can have.that in your room as  well as elsewhere if you choose. Shall  X show you the way there?" -  ~ I assented, and she led-.me -upstairs.  Oddly enough, as soon as we had passed  out of .the great .hall, the Impression of  having known ' the i" place'rfaded. The  corridors above, 'dimly lighted, and the  ���������bedroom . Into . which I was token at  last, were all utterly strange.  -Tiie room was very pretty, and -strikingly different from any other part'of  the house which I had yet seen. The  hall,downstairs, the corridors, and the  glimpses of rooms I had gained here  and ithere,' through open doors, suggested , antiquity. Nothing was new;  -���������everything���������solid,=-handsome���������and���������old-  fashioned. But the room into -which I  was ushered with the information that  tt had been prepared Cor.-me gave the  effect of having been-newly decorated;  .and daintiness was the predominating  feature'- The'walls'were '"distempered"  In. pink; the hangings were of chintz���������  white, with trailing roses; and the furniture was all of satiny-textured wood,  stained green.  Over.the foot of the bed "was thrown  a rutlly nightdress 'and a robe de,  chambre, so like garments that I had  ���������possessed In my palmy days in town  that my eyes.opened wide ln surprise as  I gazed at them. On the dressing-table'  "were flowers, and a medley of pretty  silver things, some of which onpeared  remarkably familiar. There was a  Jewel-case, too, that I seemed to know;,  but the climax of strangeness was  reached when the. woman ln black  threw open the door of a 'huge, mlrror-  tronted wardrobe.  "You won't want, for��������� frocks, I hope,  while you stay here," she said. And  there. In the different compartments,  hung the dresses I .had left in my boxes  at Easel street, even those" which on  that last miserable'day. I had sold to  the second-hand clothes dealer.   ���������  When -I stared, speechless, my companion', drew my attention to a chest of  drawers in another part of the room.  "Here Is plenty of underllnen," she announced. Mechanically I moved nearer as she pulled out-drawer after drawer. A fragrance of orris-root and. violets came to my nostrils. In one drawer lay folded, silk stockings with my  , monogram embroidered at the top. In  another, were petticoats, silk and lace.  Nothing'"was.strange to me; I had seen,  "uid'possessed, every" article before!  "This Jewel-case may Interest you,"  the woman \ went' on, crossing" to the  dWsaing-table. "There are no thieves  here"���������with a slight emphasis���������"oo It  haa not been locked."  ���������She raised the lid; I.peeped ln, and  eaw the things which had been stolen  ,from me ln Easel street. -  "Itather like a fairy-tale, Isn't HT'  said the woman, ln black.  "It Is a trick���������the strangest -trick that  was ever played upon mei" X exclaimed.  "At least, It relieves your mind, I  Bhould think, of any fear that harm is  intended you. The���������persons who havfr  planned this surprise would hardly  ���������have taken so much 'trouble, yott anust  see, if tbey had brought you here to  murder you."  "There nre other evils In the world  beside murder," I answered. But my  brain felt as If wheels wero going  round and round Inside lt. . When they  stopped 'turning, waa the dim thought  ln my mind, I might be abk to solve  this puzzle, but not while .nicy kept  whirling round.  "Only good Is Intended for you," said  the woman. "You are a very fortunate  girl���������or you will be."    ,   ���������   x  "I shall certainly go mad. whatever  .else I am to do," I cried, "If I am not  given an explanation! of,.all these mysteries. You tempted ime with that advertisement. Now I'am sure that lt was  only a bait, and nothing more,"  "I told you In the train that, ln  course of a couple of hours or so, I  would explain as far as it was In my  power to explain. That I will do now,  If you will sit down. You are as white  as death, and I don't want you fainting on my hands."  I sat down on a small sofa at the foot  of the bed, and the woman in black  took possession of a chair not fair away.  I' watched iher ln silence, .waiting, and  presently, with the air of considering  her words, she began:  "I have only been agent In this���������last  affair. Now that you are In this house,  I am able to tell you what I could not  tell beforo���������there Is a 'power behind the  throne,' for which I have 'been acting.  That power has been interested la your  movements for some time, and you  have done few thl'gs that have not  been known at head -uarters.

And  now all your troubles are. over. You  may rest���������rest."  I jumped up fr<���������i the sofa. ."You  talk like a mad w -an!" I ejaculated.  "We are ln real life, not in a play."  "The world's a s'-ge; the men and  women merely players," she quoted,  calmly. ."Why do you excite yourself?  Why hot, now 'that you've come Into  haven, do as} I said���������rest?"  "Who Is -the 'Power' you talk of?" I  demanded, hotly, and scornfully, too.  "Who are you? What Is this house?"  "Too many questions at a time."  "Were you the agent of the same  employer," I began, "on the night when  you sat in the stalls at the Lyceum  Theater and showed me the scar on  your arm?"  Her face changed slightly. "No,'.'  she said. "I was -not. Still, even then  I did not act for myself, but for another." * ��������� , ' iY  "You shall tell r--e for"Whom you  acted then,' for who- - you' acted now!".  .1 cried, passionately, stamping my foot.  "I am not a child, but a woman, and I  will not be cheated and played with."  The woman in black smiled. She had  not a pleasant smile. And her big white  teeth looked cruel. "You make me  laugh," she drawled. "If you are not  a child, you certainly behave like one.  You say 'shall' to me. How do you expect to enforce your commands?" ' ,%  "At least I can go away," I retorted.  "Since you have been at some pains* to,  bring mo here, I suppose you would not  like that?"  '"You will not be so toolish as to leave  this house when I tell you that it is  your own���������absolutely your own. The  servants "are your servants; the very  plate on the sideboard in the dining-  room is yours; and I may add that it is  well worth having."  If I had never seen John Bourke her  words might have fallen like seeds on  barren ground. But I thought what it  would be to have such a house as! this  for my own; what a different position  ��������� mine would be���������not In 'his eyes, for I  knew him to bo as far above .mercenary  ,temptatlons_as.the^sun was_above_tha_  ���������arfch���������tout in the eyes' of his- world.  And so ac-iln I was silenced, if not convinced. *  "I have told you all now that I am  permitted to tell," the woman went on,  "except my own name. That you may  know if you like. It is Leigh���������Slntra  Lelgli.   Did you ever hear lt before?"   *"  Her. eyes pierced mine to find the  truth In their depths, as If she doubted  th"b evidence my tongue might give.  But I thought for a moment; and then  answered that the name was strange  to any ears. It was so peculiar that I  know I could hot have heard lt and  ���������forgotten.  "When ami to hear tho rest of this  mystery of yours?" I asked, trying to  put contempt rather than curiosity Into my voice.  "Not of mine; of another's. My employer will see you to-morrow, probably In the morning,, and I havo no  doubt the Information wliich you lack  now will be supplied."  . "But you say you had-a different employer at the time you went to the  Lyceum?" I objected. "Above all  .things I wish to kno.w the secret of  ���������that night. Why roybioth���������why Lady  Cope was so afteoted when she saw the  scar. Why she went aiway with you?  What happened while she was away?  Why the scar like yours on her arm  was burnt, and the meaning of the  words she tried so hard to make me  understand before she died? It was  these things which your advertisement  in thc paper led'ine to believe that-I  might expect to have explained."  Always the face of the woman in  black changed when I brought'up the  subject of the Heart-shaped scar. She  looked away from me, as she 'had before, while she answered:  "I am not to be held responsible for  aJl that you may have taken for  granted from that paragraph," she returned, ln the stilted way; without abbreviations, whicli I had discovered tonight was characteristic of her in  speaking. "But my present employer  knows as much as I know���������at least, as  much as I did know until this evening���������  and will decide how much it Is best for  you to understand. Can- you be patient until to-morrow���������since impatience  will advance your Interests not at all?"  "Needs must, when certain persons  drive," I quoted, recklessly.   For I had  reflected that the shelter of this mysterious house was better than no shelter for to-night.  "I will bid you au revoir, then," said  Slntra Leigh, with a look of relief.  "Will you have supper sent up?"  I thanked her stiffly, refusing the offer, and in a moment she was gone.  Hardly had she closed the door when  I Tan to lt, not only turning the key in  the lock, but slipping a small bolt Into  placo. Then I went to the windows,  raising one and looking out to satisfy  myself that it was high above the  ground. Last of all, I set to work examining the walls. I had heard of secret ways of entering rooms in old-  fashioned country houses, and weary  and spent as I was I could not sleep  until I was oertaln that there was no  danger of being disturbed.  CHAPTER XX.  The.Doorway With the Curtains.  I felt more than ever like a shadow-  self in a dream, as I prepared for bod  and brushed out Uie heavy waves of  my long 'hair with my own old silver-  backed brush. J-low 'had the people  here managed not only to collect all my  belongings .frojn Easel stieet, but to  retrieve the stolon jewels aud the  dresses I bad sold?  I was desperately eager to know everything, but my weary body cried out  for rest, and after a delicious bath ln  tho bathroom adjoining my new bedchamber, 1 had no sooner laid my head  on the pillow than I seemed to be sitd-  Ing down, down steep, grassy bastes of  sleep.  I had had many things to think of  during the day that was past, but 1  dreamt of John Bourke, and dreamt  happily. For there was no Lady Feo  Rlngwood In the picture my sleeping  mind painted; only John Bourke and 1;  and we loved each other.  In 'the. vision which passed, panor-  ama-likefrom scene to scene, I went to  the*. House, of Commons, and after we  had had tea; on the Terrace I J>at ln the  Ladles' Gallery, listening to a speech  (made by John Bourke. I had typed the  notes for it, and I seemed to know  what words he would use almost be-  "fore tliey had left his lips. Suddenly  there was a loud noise���������someone had  thrown a dynamite bomb. A cloud  rose before my eyes; I could see nothing, but I could hear among the shouts  of excitement a man groaning in mortal agony. I .tried to fight my way  tlhrough the crowd, to find,out if the  one man I loved were hunt; but I could  not, and the groaning went on, while a  great pall of darkness fell. I heard my  own voice .calling his name, and the  sound roused me.  For a moment the scene of my dream  was still real for me. I was in the  dark,'and I heard the groans which  had made the horroi of the vision. But  as I lay, staring into blackness and  sobbing, I began slowly to Tealize that  I was in bed; that I had just awaked  ��������� from sleep. Then I remembered where  I was���������in the mysterious house where  the woman with the heart-shaped scar  had brought me. Had I dreamt the  groaning, too?   No, It was Teal.  The knowledge of'this sent a shock  of electricity from my heart to my  head, creeping with a chill to my finger ends and down the tips of my toes.  I sat up in bed, and there was a prickling at tlie roots of my hair. .'I had left  a candle alight, but it had evidently  had time to burn down, for the room  ���������was in total .darkness. I would have  given much if-1 could have remembered  where I had put the matches.  Twice, thrice I had heard the groans  since I had been sure that I was  awake; and each" time it seemed that  the sound was more distinct. My  heart beat like the resonant strokes of  a hammer, and the blood pounded in  my ears. Was I mistaken? Did it really come more clearly? Would I hear It  again?    I waited, and did not breathe.  Suddenly the sound thrilled out once  more. I had not been mistaken. It  had increased in distinctness because  .it was nearer. Someone was groaning  just outside my door.  I had thought many .times during the.  day lately gone (even as I had thought  on Waterloo Bridge) that I need be  afraid of nothing, because I had nothing to lose���������that I could face death  with a 'heart no heavier than I already  carried.   But now I knew differently.  I was as sick with horror and nameless dread, born of those ominous  sounds in the darkness, as I would  have been if. I had possessed all that  the world could give of happiness���������my,  life a jewel to treasure.  I sat rigid and cold as ice.   I could  -have-m-aryfid-for-the-s.ToaTiing-'co-cease  if my mind had been capable of formulating a prayer. But it came again,  and something else with it; a dragging  noise, as if some heavy thing were being slowly drawn along the floor.  If I had! been a really brave woman,  no doubt I should have sprung up,  rushed to the door, and looked out into  the corridor. I had sometimes thought  myself brave, and I had delighted, In  my childish vanity, to be called so; but,  after all, I was a coward, for I remained frozen; desperately, selfishly  thankful that my door was locked, horribly afraid lest after all it should bo  forced.  My whole being listened; and from  far away my ears, unnaturally sharpened, caught a separate sound. A door  opened and shut In the distance. Muffled footsteps came hurrying. Something brushed against the handle of  my door; something fell with a soft  thud and another groan. There were  whisperings, followed by a struggle,  with a plunge against my door that  made lt rattle.  I half sprang out of bed, shaking, despite the warm June night, as If in an  ague St. But suddenly stillness fell.  There was not a sound. I waited  again, my heart ticking the seconds.  A dong time���������or what seemed to me a  long time���������passed, and nothing more  happened. '  "Thank Heaven, whatever It was���������Is  'over," I panted. But as the hopeful  thought formed ln my mind, a word  was .cried s*_*rilly���������"Ermyntrude! Ermyntrude!"���������once, and again. Before  the last syllable had been completed  for' the second time, a door slammed  loudly.  Ermyntrude had been my adopted  mother's name.  The door that shut upon the voice  was the last sound that night. By contrast, the silence of the house seemed  deathly, and I slept no more until the  faint, pearly dawn turned the curtained -windows of the room to eyes  that awoke and opened.  While they awoke, mine'might close.  I let my lids droop wearily, hardly expecting to sleep; but I knew nothing  . more until I was roused by a persistent" tapping at the door. For an instant  I was frightened, each nerve still tingling r-mm my experience of the nigh*  hut for an instant only. I realizeC  ���������that the morning must be far advanced, and, springing up, I ran to the  door and unlocked it, peeping out.  There 'Stood the woman who called  herself Slntra Leigh. Sho was still a  "woman in black," but seen by morning light without her bonnet and veil,  neatly dressed for the house, with a  plain white collar fastened hy a queer  brooch at the neck of her alpaca gown,  she appeared more like an ordinary human being.  "I have been knocking for some  time," she said, as quietly as if the  night had been passed In peaceful sleep.  "I began to be rather alarmed when  you did not answer, for it Is long after  ten o'clock. I thought that you would  be glad of the extra rest. How are  you feeling?"  "I scarcely know," I said. "I didn't  sleep much until after lt was light.  Since then I must havo slept like a  log. For Heaven's sake tell me what  awful thing happened In tho house last  night."  Slntra Lolgh 'opened her great eyes  at me. "Awful thing?" she echoed, as  lt utterly perplexed. ..",..-  "Don't say that you don't know" what  I mean!" I exclaimed, Impatiently.  "The groans of someone In agony; the  horrid dragging sound, as of a (heavy  body heing drawn along the corridor  out thero; whisperings, and a fall  against my door. A voice that cried  my adopted mother's name. Oh, the  noise was loud enough, and horrible  enough, to wake the dead!"  "You must have dreamt lt," said the  woman in black.  I was standing -at the door In my  nightdress, she ln thu corridor just outside. The sunlight Altering through tho  curtained window in my room, opposite  the door, fell upon her face, and I  searched lt for the slightest change of  expression; but it remained) stolid, absolutely Impassive.  "It all happened, and you* know lt," I  Insisted. ~v'���������;-.*''���������'.' ".    '  "If lt happened; no doubt it was one  of the servants either ln a' nightmare,  or���������intoxicated. I only know that I  heard nothing. But to satisfy you, I  will enquire ln the servants' hall and  let you know when I have had a report."  "Why should one' of the servants in  this house cry out .r'-e name of Ermyn-'  trude?" I Incredulously demanded.  "Ah, there's a pa: tial explanation of  the seeming mystery! I thought lt  would be simple enough. The housekeeper's daughter, who is paying her  a visit, is called Ermyntrude. Not a  very suitable name for a young woman  of her class, perhaps; but we have  nothing to do with that. I shall now  know where to begin my enquiries."  She had me at a disadvantage and  ehe knew'it. I could not prove that  her story was false, and that she was  well aware of Its falseness. If I should  describe the'sounds to some outsider,  who ��������� had not heard them, appending  Sintra Leigh's suppositions, her explanation would probably be accepted,  unless contradictory details should actually be forthcoming.  "I have no doubt that your explanation will be simple enough!" I exclaimed, with meaning. "And now, unless you have anything else to say, I  will dress." ' ���������  "Your breakfast ���������will be sent up to  you in about half-an-hour,'*' she announced, calmly, without appearing to  notice my sneer. "After that, I shall  have some interesting-news for you.".  As If desiring to avoid further'questioning, she walked away; leaving-me  to stare after her a minute and then  retreat into the room, once more bolting the door.  By the time I had bathed, and  brushed my hair before the mirror���������  where my eyes met other eyes, with  question to question���������I had to answer a  second knock at the door. This time It  was a servant with the promised breakfast-tray���������an elderly, grim-featured  woman, whose long, flat lips, shut  tightly together, -seemed to say that  they were locked and padlocked.  If I had had the Impulse to ask questions concerning any of the' matters  which perplexed or aiarmed me, the Impulse would have died~at sight of that  hatchet-face. I thanked the woman  (for bringing my breakfast, otherwise  letting her depart in silence.  There was delicious coffee, which  might have been made by a French  ���������chef, crisp brown toast, a delicate little  omelette, and a dish piled high with  strawberries, heaped on their own  green leaves'. John Bourke had brought  nne strawberries one day, carrying the  Jifctle basket in liis own hand, because  -he^-ould-not_waitjto_haveiit_s_en_t;__a_nd__  Mrs. Jennett had .informed me that  they were forced���������lt was too early still  for strawberries to grow out of doors in  England. Somebody In this house,  therefore, appeared also desirous of ot-  fei ing me luxuries.  It would have been more Spartan In  me to refuse the food prepared ln a  house which might be that of an enemy. But I was not Spartan, and being'  very hungry, I lialf-*rhamefacedly ate.  ���������I was too excited to linger over the  meal, however, and as soon as I had  finished I put on tbe black dress which  I had worn last night. II was a temptation to fling that aside, and choose a  white frock from among thoso which  had so mys-'.orlously i.i.idethclr appearance In th.; big wanlrobe. But I resisted; and I had only,just fastened  the last hook when Slntra Leigh asked  to be admitted.  She looked me ovor from head to  fool. "It is fortunate that you are  pretty ln anything," she remarked  bluntly, "for It can't be concealed that  (that frock is exceedingly shabby. I  hoped that you would 'have dressed  yourself ln one of tho charming gowns  which Lady Cope gave you, and  ���������friends _of yours Imported to this  houso."  "You forget that I am ln mourning,"  I said. "And, even If I were not, why  should I take particular pains to make  myself attractive?"  The woman In black shrugged her  shoulders. "Luckily Nature has done  that for you, so we will talk no more  about lt. Are you anxious to hear the  news I promised you?"  "If I say that I am anxious, you will  probably not tell me."  "You misjudge me, my dear youngf  lady. The news Is this: that the employer whose agent I have been���������the  '.po'wer behind the throne' of whom I  spoke���������I.s ready to see you.if you are  willing to ibe seen." '  "At last!" I ejaculated.  "You are In Just the proper mood for  such an occasion. I will show you the  way."  We went downstairs as we had come  up last night. From the great hall,  with its ugly marble pillars and its  crowding portraits, a number of doors  opened out. My guide led me to one at  th������ back, and then paused, grasping the  (To be Continued.)  The Shirt-Waist For Men,  Again.  w  ITH    the    advent    of    hot  weather;   reports  begin  to  come ln from various parts  of   the  country   telling  of  the preliminary skirmishes  that the shirt-waist for men Is malting  In its fight for public recognition.   Its  appearance last summer was too late In  the  season  for   a  conclusive   struggle  between its friends and* foes; but this  year lt Is on the scene early.   The progress of the battle is reported and commented   upon  as   follows  by   tha  New  York "Tribune:"   .  "The shirt-waist problem, which began about a year ago in private discussion, hns passed that stage and has  now boon taken up by ofllelal bodies In  va.rlous parts ot tbo country, In indi-.  vldual cases the matter has boon fairly,  traversed In argument, and has gino  forward'into execution. More and more  coatless men tiro to be seen day by day,  and. certainly it cannut .be maintained  tlint they aro nil callow youth or men  readily convicted of a desire to look  like women. Among tlie ofllci-il bodies  which have taken up the shirt-waist  problem associations of letter-carriers  have boon prominent. The battle lias  been waged In the ranks of the postmen  with considerable fierceness. There has  certainly been a great reluctance to  adopt the shirt-waist on the part of  many of the carriers, and In several Instances there have been efforts at compromise. In Washington, D.C, for instance, someone devised a peculiar sort  of garment which Is said to resemble  a -shirt-waist in front and a coat behind. Permission to wear this garment  was secured from the postal authorities, and lt was adopted by some,  though not by any means a majority,  of the carriers of that city.  "The question came up before the  letter-carriers of New Haven recently,  and there a suggestion -was made which  ought to solve the whole difficulty. Everybody agrees that every man ougnt  to keep as cool as possible during the  heated term. If he does not he will be  iross to his wife and children, besides  suffering other lesser evils. Everybody agrees, also, that no coat was  ever devised which was really cool  enough for midsummer. The disagreement comes .when It Is proposed that  men adopt the shirt-waist, by name  and association a feminine garment.  The feeling was .well expressed by one  of the New Haven carriers, who said:  'What do they want to rig us out with  shirt-waists for? Do they think we are  a lot of women? Some of the men who  favor shirt-waists will ono of these  days be calling for hoopskirts for the  carriers. Give us the blouse, a man's  garment.'  ."Now, here is the germ of a great  thought. 'Give us the blouse, a man's  garment.' A blouse, according to the  diotlonary, Is a loose.upper garment  worn by men in place of .a* coat. Certainly give us the blouse,"or, ln other  words, call it a blouse, and don't, for  pity's sake, call It a shirt-waist. The  garment will be just the same, and the  resultant coolness will be just as delightful, but the stigma of aping the  women will be forever removed. Sometimes there is a good deal in a name.  By all means give us the blouse."  u  Would Stand No Nonsense.  Believing that true love can never  run smooth when a man continually  kisses the woman of his affection, the  Mount Hope Married Men's Antl-Kiss-  Ing League, a Western organization,  after due deliberation arrived at the  following agreement:  "That henceforth we will not kiss our  own wives or any 'other woman, but  that we will still' hold the same deep  affection' for our' wives and retain our  admiration-for the feminine beautirul.  We do not believe that kissing is right,  and therefore we agree not'to practice  it. Any member of this organization  who Is found guilty of disobeying' the  order will be dismissed at once. It' is  a dirty and filthy .habit���������one that is apt  to spread disease; and against the true  principles of love. One does not need  to kiss to show their affection. The  grasp of >a hand is sufficient to do that,  and as for loving, one's actions speak  for that, and not by tlie number of  times you kiss your wife."  When these resolutions were handed  out to the women a great sensation  was created, and the wife of the president threatened to leave her husband  at���������once.*7-���������The��������� thirteen���������wives~of���������the"  thirteen members held a meeting and  decided that they would leave their  husbands within one month if thoy did  not break up  the club.

I am a parent, as you aro,  and I think lt Is the duty of every parent to provide suitable paths of knowledge for children's minds to travel ln."  Plodderly made no reply.  "My boy," continued Winkleton, "Is  just six years old. I started him In at  the kindergarten at three, wishing to  give him the full advantage of all the  educational blessings that this country  affords, at as early an age as possible.  Ho has now finished this three'years'  course, and while he looks a little  peaked, ho hns already shown promise  of,a wonderful mind."  'II have no doubt of lt," said Plodderly.  "I have been looking up the matter,"  wont on Winkleton, "and I shall push  lilm right ahead through the primary  with all possible speed. The spare time  he Is home lie Is occupied with somo of  tho latest educational games, so that  ho Is practically not losing a moment  except for his meals. When he is a"  little older, and has gotten through the  elements, I shall begin to ground him  In history, physics, Latin and Greek,  higher mathematics, hydrostatics, biology, psychology, modern languages.  Biblical lore, geology, statistics and  dynamics, astronomy, conic sections,  metaphysics, sociology, political economy and any other branch that in the  meantime may have been discovered.  What are you doing with your boy?"  "Nothing," said Plodderly. "He has  never been to school. He just fools  around. At present he Is building a  dog-house."  "And do you intend," said Winkleton, with a sneer, "always to keep him  In such dense Ignorance?"  "I hope to," replied Plodderly.

He Is disgusted with what he terms the circus-  ing of his profession. His efforts have  always been confined to the one-a-day  factories, but for the sake ot appearances he-has haunted the swagger publishing houses on Fifth avenue. He  had just finished reading "Pumpkin  Adams Nausea" ahd "Edam Hold-em-  up," two of the record-breaking books  of the Squash school, and concluded  that he could outsquash anything they  contained. He felt sure that Scribblers  would accept without demur his latest  manuscript, "Abner Applejack, the  Hero of Wynoekle, N.J."  When he called upon the reader of  the great publishing house he was referred to the business office.  "What printing have you got?" he  was asked.  "None," replied Smith, In surprise.  "Well, you know unless you have at  least flve thousand dollars' worth of  paper we can do nothing with youi  book," explained the manager. "The  title Is Just what we want, but you  must have plenty of advertising matter, , including good half-sheet 'and  three-sheet posters. You must'supply  us with your own.lithograph, showing  yourself in a thoughtful mood, as the  great author of the domestic story of  'Abner Applejack,' etc., the true type o-*  native American, and all that sort of  thing. If you do this and engage s  flrst-class press agent, we may be able  to push you up to the hundred-thousandth mark, make it a dollar-and-a-  half book and the success of the year."

"Uncle Sam" was Invented about the  time of the American War of 1812. Two  Inspectors of war supplies ot Troy, N.  %> were named Ebenezer and Samuel  Wilson.  A workman in their employ was  making a lot ot casks received from  one Elbert Anderson, a New York contractor, which were stamped "Ii. A.,���������  U.S." Somebody asked the workman  what those marks meant, and lie replied Hint tbey probably meant "Kl-  bert Anderson and Undo Sam," alluding to Inspector Snmuel Wilson, who  was locally spoken ot as "Undo Sam."  Thus tho Initials of the United  States were transformed by a local  loke Into a national sobriquet which  will doubtless last as long as thc Republic.  The nickname "Brother Jonathan"  dates back to the time when General  Washington went to Massachusetts to  take command of the Revolutionary  Army. Finding a great lack of ammunition and other supplies, he turned  to Governor Jonathan Trumbull of  Connecticut for aid and received lt,  and In many emergencies of that period he used the phrase, "We must consult Brother Jonathan on the subject."

It looks as if the tariff question will  cause a split in the Laurier cabinet.  The tariff is the chief issue in Cuna  dian politics, and though the people  may for a time put up with a set of  ministers who in different quarters  talk different, tariffs, they will one of  theso days call upon the representatives Qf the government 'to tell them  just where they are at; whether, they  are to have the Tarts policv, of Canada  i'or Canadians;* or the policy of .the  minister of the Interior, Canada for  Sifton.  Hon. Clifford Sifton's assurance to  the Libera!*, of Manitoba and the  Northwest Unit Mv. Tarte's protection  views are not those of the government  and that they need not fear tariff  increases, does not upset the Minister  of Puhlic Work's'in the least. When  shewn Mv. Sifton's statement as set  forth in the party newspapers, Mr.  Tarte only laughed. " I have already  -seen it," he said. "Mr. Sifton is as  free as 1 am to spi*ak,for himself in the  matter."  Nothing fuuUier would the minister  say for publication, except that the  views he has expressed in favor of  adequate protection to Canadian  industries ami tor the development of  our resources were.- his own opinions  and that he had i.ot -uttered them as  the views or policy of tlie administration of which he is a. member.  What Mr. Tarte's views on  the fiscal  ���������question are, however, is well known,  'jf.' has made no bones ahout giving  " J* ' ��������� .iihlieity at divers times and  Only the other day on rench-  treal.from a trip down the St.  ;ce������* \'  rvenfr  Ai"'  ta  Ir-7*  '}p&'1 "'��������� e, upon seeing a large steam-  * .    Ai4*"*  dfttV"1 __*hurging rails made in Germany, heexclaimed to a fiiend: What  fools we are.   Here we are importing  rails from Germany which  we ou"bt  . ��������� -** "  to make in our own country   and all  tjje while Germany is discriminating  against Canadian products. In the  case of steel rails as in' regard to other  finished products of Canada's abundant  raw material, Mr. Tarte believes there  should be a duty upon the imported  article sufficient at least to counterbalance the foreigners' advantage of  cheap labor in its production.  The prominence Riven to Mr. Tarte's  puhlic speeches.of Jate by the leading  newspapers of Canada has doubtless  aroused Mr. Sifton's jealousy as" well,  as'apprehension for its eifect in the'  west where he has a hard enough task  already in. squaring himself with his  old free trade allies. It Jias been  conceded, pretty generally, too, that  Mr. Tarte is no parish political.; that  his policy is not sectional, but one  which he thinks would be for the  benefit, of Canada as * a whole. Mr.  Tarte would not only place a protective duty upon steel rails, but he is a  good enough Canadian not to be afraid  although he is a,.cabinet minister, -to  favor openly an ekport duty on -pulp  wood, or such other restrictions' "upon  the outgo of it from Canada as Would  compel its manufacture in this country. He has made a closer study of  "thelTattfral resources of'.tlie^DSminiorT  than any of his confreres. He has  been getting the credit,- too,J of going  aliout the country 'making himself  acquainted with its needs, while some  of his colleagues spent the whole  summer holidaying, air. Sifton lias  probably - not enjoyed the comparison. '        '  If the Minister ot Public Works  accepts one or two of the numerous  invitations he has received to speak at  political gatherings, he will probably  not. be deterred by Mr. Sifton's threats  from reiterating the strong views  which he' undoubtedly holds on the  necessity of protecting and fostering  Canadian, industries by .tariff legislation.

Five' thousand Doukhobors have  decided tliat, during the- coming summer the government of Canada, must  be responsible ior their maintenance.  Hon. Cliit'oid Sifton has so often  declared these people to be the acme  of our immigration importations, that  the announcement is somewhat startling. The* Conservative party was  denounced for daring to 'mpeach'the  usefulness of these settlers, who' were  heralded as a people of priceless value  in opening up a country where other  races would starve. But the delightful picture is shattered and it is up to  the people of Canada to support the  thousands,-lor the departure of whom'  -Russia-had reason to thank-Pro vidence:-  j *  ���������  "Worthless in their own country,' the  Doukhobors promise, to he a great  nuisance here. * Five thousand Cana ���������  dians from the United States might  have 'occupied the places of the  undesirable Doukhobors, had the  money spent in assisting the latter  heen devoted to encouraging the  former to return to their native land.  Canada is only beginning to reap the  harvest of the ill-advised immigration,  policy of the present administration.  It is significant that the authorities do  not care to discuss the matter.

A.rttinr j. nalfonr, Lord RnllNbnry  anil Hon. Joseph Chjiml-erlaln-���������  Attribute*  of. Each   Statesman.  An outstanding feature ol the great  change in liritish politics brought about  by the resignation of Ixird Salisbury  ond the Accession of Mr. Balfour is  the relations between the throe publicists, the retiring Premier, the incoming  Premier and Mr. Chamberlain ; they form  ������. trio. Any appreciation of the situation must take a view of all three, for  their widely dissimilar qualities are  curiously complementary. An especially good review of the work and characteristics of these three men appeared in  a Chicago paper and may lie quoted at  some length :���������  Arthur J. Half our, thc successor to  the Premiership, is the son of a sister  of Lord Sali.-bury. but in spirit is widely different from his relative. The cider man is called cynical ; the younger  has been styled a sentimentalist. Lord  Salisbury is positive, dictatorial, ��������� reserved. Mr. Balfour is speculative, genial and lovable. The uncle i3 pessimistic ; the nephew is an optimist,  though not quite of the kind Lord Salisbury once dubbed "blatant optimist."  But they share in these things : Both  belong to the great house of Cecil ; the  elder is an aristocrat by temperament,  the younger in hi3 intellect. Both are  men of almost German culture ; both  have the genius for epigram and retort;  both are diplomats, each in his sphere,  the uncle among the Ambassadors of the  continent,, the nephew in the closet of  the Cabinet. Both are interested in religion. Salisbury began as a devoted  ���������tngiican and has become a scientifi'c agnostic; Balfour began as a scientific  doubter and has ended as an apologist  for dogmatic religion. Moreover, hoth  are tat -bottom literary men who have  applied   themselves  to   affairs.  There are those who will say Balfour's  elevation thwarts the ambition of  Joseph Chamberlain. Those better informed would aver that if Chamberlain  himself cannot be Premier, he would prefer his friend Balfour be selected. The  - careers ol mmth men have been_ strange  and seemingly diametrical, but the result has heen an intellectual and political friendship such ns rarely exists  ox-em outside politics.  Arthur James Balfour -was horn in  Scotland, July 25, 1S-IS. the son^pf James  Maitland Balfour and Lady Blanche Gas-  eoigne Cecil, daughter of the second Marquis ot Salisbury. He is, therefore, now  5-i years ot age, and he has been a bache-  ioc all his life. He unites the blood  ���������of one oi the canniest oi Scottish tribes  -with that of the patrician and accomplished Cecils. His mother was one of  the most learned and remarkable women, of her time and imparted her mind  to each of her three sons, one who is  ���������now Premier, another,* Gerald, who is a  ���������rising stitcsinnn, and thc third the late  .Professor Balfour, accounted in the  -world of science when ho died as a young  man of original genius.  Arthur U-tlfour was educated at Eton  and Cambridge. He w.is lackadaisical  and went by tho name of "Aunt Clara."  Later in London ho was accounted as  "soulful.'' nnd admiring ladie3 called him  "King Arthur."  Ue was exceedingly delicate in his early .H.inhood, ami he has remained always  lazy, though ior an indolent man he'has  ���������aecompli-ihed much thinking, has written  several learned books and has made for  himself a political careeT. He was ono  ot '-Mr. Gladstone's boys" back in the  ���������seventies, and to be that he had to have  -a stock of learning. Years after, when  he was crossing rapiers in the Commons  nightly with "the grand old man" he was  always respectful, even reverential.   His   valedictory  on  Mr.   Gladstone    in   the  YIouRe shows-how~ho���������reverenced"���������the'  great character, though he fought the  politician.  Elect**'! to Parliament In 187-1 for  Hertford, for a time he w.is a member  with Lord Randolph Churchill and two  others of "the fourth party." That  same yenr Mr. Chamberlain. ex-Mayor ot  Birmingham, appeared at Westminster as  i  "black-coated   Tinrl'ical."  When his .uncle became Secretary for  Forcic-n Affairs, 1S7S-S0, Balfour acted as  hU private secretary. Tn Lord Salisbury'; first Ministry,  lSf'i-fi,  he  served  ������]  Dooley on Country Life.  WANST spint a night ln th'  counthi-y, Hinnissy. 'Twas  H whin Hogan bad his villa out  i near th' rivei*. 'Twas called a  villa to distinguish it fr'm a  bouse. It 'twas a little .bigger,  'twud be big enough f'r th' hens, an'  if 'twas a little smaller, 'twud be small  enough f'r a dog. lt looked as if 'twas  made with a' scroll saw, but Hogan  mannyfacthered it himsilf out iv a design In th' pa-aper. 'How to make a  eounthry home on wan thousan' dollars. Puzzle: find th' money.' Hogan  kidnapped me wan aflhernoon an' took  me out there in time to go to bed. He  boosted me up a laddher Into me bedroom adjinln' th' roof. 'I hope,' says I,  'I'm not ���������dlscommodln' th' pigeons,' 1  says. 'There ain't anny pigeons here,'  say.s he. 'What's that?' says 1. 'That's  a mosquito," says ho. 'I thought ye  didn't have anny here,' says I. ' 'Tis lh'  first wan I've seen,' says he, whackin'  himsiif on th' back Iv th' neck. 'I got  ye that time, assassin,' he says, hurl-  iu' th' remains to th' ground. 'Thoy  on'y come,' ho says, 'afther a heavy  rain or a heavy dhry spell.' he says, 'or  whin they's a littlo rain,' he says, 'Col-  lowed be some dhryuess,' he says, 'Ye  mustn't mind thim.' ho says. 'A mosquito on'y lives f'r a day,' he says.  ' 'Tis a short life an* a merry wan,'  says 1. 'Do they die iv indiglsthion?"  I says. So he fell down through th'  thrap-ilure an' left me alone.  "Well, I said me prayers an* got into  ���������bed an' lay there,'thinkin' iv me past  life, an' wondheiin' If th' house was on  lire. 'Twas warrum, Hinnissy. I'll not  deny it. Th' roof was near enough to  me that I cud smell th' shingles, an'  th' sun had been rollin' on lt all day  long, an' though it had gone away, it'd  left a ray or two to keep th' place. But  .I'm a survivor Iv th' gr-reat flre, an' I  often go down to th' rollin'-mills, an'  besides, mind ye, I'm iv that turn lv  mind that whin 'tis hot I say 'tis hot,  an' lave it go at that. So I whispers to  mesilf, 'I'll dhrop off,' I says, 'into a  peaceful slumber,' I says, 'like th'  healthy plough-boy that I am,' says I.  An' I counted as far as I knew how,  an' conducted a flock iv sheep in a  steeplechase, an' I'd just begun f'r to  wondher how th' las| thing I thought  lv came into me head, "whin a dog  started to howl in'th' yard. They was  a frind iv this dog in th' nex' house  that answered him, an* they had a long  chat. Some other dogs butted in to  be compananyable. I heerd Hogan roll-  in' in bed. an' thin I heerd him goin'  out to get a dhrink Iv wather. He  thripped over a chair befure he lighted  a match to look at th' clock. It  seemed like an hour befure he got back ���������  to -bed. Be this tlrtie th' dogs was  tired, an' I was thinkin' I'd take a nap,  whin a bunch lv crickets under me  ���������windows',*begun f'r to dlscoorse. I've  ���������heerd iv th" crickets on th' hearth,  Hinnissy, an' I used to think they were  all th' money, but anny time they get  on me hearth I buy me a pound lv in-  eect powdher. I'd rather have a pianola on th' hearth anny day, an' Gawd  save me fr'm that! An' so 'twas dogs  an' mosquitoes, an' crickets an' mosquitoes, an' a screech-owl an' mosquitoes, an' a whippoorwill an" mosquitoes, an' cocks beginnin' to crow at  two In th' mornin', an' mosquitoes,  so that whin th' sun. bounced up  an' punched me in the eye at  four, I knew what th' truth is���������that  th' eounthry is th' noisiest place in th"  wurruld. Mind ye, there's a roar in th'  city, but In th' eounthry th' noises  beats on ye'er ear like carpet-tacks  beln' dhriven into th' dhrurri. Between  ith' chirp iv a cricket an' the chirp iv  th' hammer at th' mlils, I'll take th'  hammer. I can go to sleep In a boiler-  shop, but I spint th' rest iv that night  In Hogan's, settin' In th' bath-tub.  "I saw him in th' mornin' at breakfast. We had canned peaches an' condensed milk. 'Te have ye'er valise,'  says he. 'Aren't ye goin' to stay out?"  'I am not," says I. 'Whin th' first rattler goes by ye'll see me on th' platform fleein' th' peace an' quiet iv th"  eounthry, fr th' turmoil an' heat,' 1  says, 'an' food Iv a gr-rea; city,* I  says. 'Stay on th' farm," says I. 'Corn-  constructive influence has been displayed j mune,' I says, 'with nature,-' I says,  in foreign affairs, and upon his conduct j 'Enjoy.'

But he seemed  sinking somehow into, "innocuous desuetude," though now ancl then he  evinced his old ucxlcrily in debate.  However, it has been .'prophesied that  tlie Tories would never accept Chamberlain as i'remier. Balfour suits both  sides, and, therefore, succeeds. Mr.  Chamberlain lui3 perhaps missed the ambition of nil his scheming, working, fighting. But Mr. Chamberlain's next friend  is Mr. Balfour. If the voice is that of  Jacob, tlie hand maj' be Esau's.  ICiirh man admires me other for thoso  qualities lacking in himself. Chamberlain has lillle learning; lialfour little  executive ability. Chamberlain is a  sledgehammer; Balfour a Damascus  blade. Chamberlain lacks manner; Balfour's native heath im I lie dr.iwing-room.  Both need each other, politically and  iulcJleclimlly.    They are n. team."  Mr. Balfour is a ravoritc with women  and the clergy; women are attracted by  his spirituality, and the clergy by his  theological Accomplishments. Mr. Balfour's sister keeps house for him and is  his favorite companion. His great book,  "The Foundations of Beliel," in which  a number of clergymen aided, is a skeptical vindication of religion and to be  compared with Bishop Buller's great  work in thc eighteenth century.  NMr. Balfour is long, thin and angular,  mostly legs and arms and head. H.o sits  on the small of his back, except when ho  is playing golf. No man in Great Britain  except John Morley surpasses him in  learning, and in what is called "elegant  letters" it is doubtful if lie has a modern equal.  Robert Arthur Talbot Gascolgne Cecil,  Marquis of Salisbury, Karl of Salisbury,  Viscount Cranborne and Baron Cecil,  was three times Prime Minister ot  Great Britain. He is a Knight of the  Garter, a Grand Seigneur, an accomplished scholar and a haughty and honorable gentleman of the old school.  Since Queen Victoria's death his retirement has been foreseen and the con-  elusion of peace rendered it possible.  Two years ago he surrendered the portfolio of Foreign Affairs to the Marquis  of Lansdowne, and since thc opening of  the Boer war his has not been the  master spirit in tho Cabinet which bore  his name.  This is the end of a long and remarkable career. No other Englishman since  Gladstone has wielded such power, and  since the fall of Bismarck no other influence in Europe has counted as his. Ho  has directed the foreign policy of Britain longer than any other Minister  since Pitt, and with more lasting result  than anv other since Palmerston.  "The last and greatest of the Cecils"  is a direct descendant of the Cecil who  was the counsellor and agent of masterful Queen Elizabeth, and ho has been accused of statesmanship and temper more  Elizabethan than Victorian. Yet on account of making a marriage his father  disapproved Lord Robert Cecil earned his  biead as a journalist in London. A  younger son. he succeeded hy thc death  of his elder brother to the title. Before  that, however, he had made his mark  in the Commons as a brilliant, . cynical,  profoundly informed and an unpopular  young man.  He was born February 3, 1S30. was  educated at Eton and Oxford. At 27 he  married Georgiana Alderson. the daughter of a Baron of the Exchequer. He  was 3S when he became Marquis of  Salisbury. Disraeli, who succeeded Lord  Derby as leader of the Conservatives, attached him to himself. Tn 1S7S he. became Foreign Minister. With Lord Bea-  cor.sfield he represented his country at  the Congress of Berlin.  Gladstone, won in 1SS0. and the Tories  were turned out. Bcaconslicld died the  next. year, and. Salisbury was leader.  With Gladstone's conversion to Irish  home rule Salisbury's opportunity came.  He went into office upon that issue, hut  since 1SSG, with the exception of an interval froni 1S92 to  1S04, his real and  been the policy he nay be said to have j ������ml\������lU\-Tv  inaugurated toward the United States. . , -���������_,��������� .*.

As the uncle mounted into power upon  the Irish question, the nephew mounted  into reputation as Chief Secretary for  Ireland, the office which had broken or  ruined his predecessors for thirty years.  He invented the policy of "killing the  Irish with kindness." His polished sarcasm checked the Irish onslaughts in  the Commons. The elegant valetudinarian young man, what Americans call a  "sissy," proved to have a hand of steel  ���������in a velvet glove.  Since ISflo Jlr. Balfour may be de-  tscribed a.*, having been in a state of  quiescence, or acquiescence. He had  proved bis mottle, he hod an immense  majority back of him. and he openly  indulged hi*, laziness.

Slot and got Ills correct weight *t a  piece of chocolate, he seldom thinks  o������ the thousands* of other pennies dropped that very hour into  other machines. The companies  thait owm these "automatic vendors"  receive tons of pennies, which they can  turn back Into circulation only through  the United States Subtreasury, since  banks refuse to handle pennies unless  they are counted and packed In rolls,  and the slot-machine companies would  have toi hire a large force of clerks to  do this, and that would curtail their  profits. The problem o������ counting pennies for deposit in tho Subtreasury is  s'lmple. They are weighed like so many-  bullets on a scale, -which registers not  pounds and ounces, but dollars and  cents. The collections from the slot-  cmachlnes do not go directly to be  weighed. The coin has Ilrst to be sorted, for lt Is mixed with all kinds of refuse���������lead weights, buttons, bangles  and counterfeits, put Into the slot elth-,  er ln a spirit of mischief or to defraud  tho company. The boys who do this  sorting wear antiseptic gloves, for the  coins are very dirty and likely to  spread disease. The refuse from the  sorting process Is usually .valueless, although now and then gold pieces, bits  of jewelry, gold and sliver charms engraved with tender inscriptions find  their way Into the Iron throat of the  machine which swallows only copper  cents. Hundreds of German pennies  and many coins of higher value are  found ln the machines, put there  through carelessness, for in these cases  there can be no Intention to cheat;  there is nothing , lower than a cent.  Counterfeits abound. The cost of making Is not great, and the per cent, of  profit Js large. People seldom take the  trouble to look carefully at pennies, so  counterfeits pass easily. On. the Bowery ln New Xork and at Coney Island  from one to two per cent, of the copper  ln circulation Is said to be spurious. So  the owners of the penny-ln-the-slot  machines have more trouble with the  actual money they receive than -men ln  any other business. Making change relieves a street-car company from receiving nothing but nickels, but the  penny-in-the-slot company must take  the actual copper stuft and turn it.into  more convenient form. On" lower Broadway lt is no uncommon sight to seen  wagon load of pennies going to the  Treasury, in appearance only a load of  canvas sacks, but really a clumsy embarrassment of riches.

There are two very amusing little  anecdotes ln the' newly-published  "Memoirs of Herr .von Busch."  who lived for years ln the confidence  of Prince von Bismarck. It appears  that the Iron Chancellor was not tender to his two sons when they were  little, and spanlced them for the  slightest offence. Once Herbert and  "Bill" had been caught stealing nuts  In the garden of a neighbor, who, full  of, respect for the little gentlemen,  only scolded them mildly.  At that very moment, however, Bismarck and Morltz Busch put in an appearance. "What!" cried the stern  father; "is that all you find'to say to  these little scoundrel.-.? Please cut on..-  ot the most elastic brandies from your  despoiled tree, and give' them, uncloi  my very eyes, the best thrashing that  they ever had. And, depend upon it,  when I Co it myself I do not spare  them!" There was no getting out of  it; so the neighbor set about tho task  as tenderly as possible, but Bismarck,  stamping with his foot, kept on crying, "Go on! Go on! Tou coward!" till  the wretched farmer, excited by the  commanding voice, hit soi hard that thc  boys asked for mercy.  Herr von Busch -was Indignant, and  could not help venturing a few observations. "Bah!" Bismarck answered, "you are too much of a sentimentalist, and. seem to ignore -that the  birch ts the salvation of our German  children. Look at the Prince Imperial  himself! The birch never for a moment leaves the back of the chair of  Frauleln H., his governess, who obeys  orders, but hates beating her august  pupil."  Then,   choking    with   laughter,   the  Prince went on:  "one day  the poor,  -kind-iadyr-a.fter-hs -:ng-ndmlnlstered a^  severe    correction   to    Wilhelm,   said,  'Believe me,  your Highness,  It hurts  me  more  than  it hurts  you  when I  have   to   punish   you   so.'      The   boy  shrugged his shoulders, looking somewhat  incredulous.    A  little   later,   a.t  luncheon   time,   when   all  the  family  was   gathered    round   the    table,    he  t-nnidenly   said   to   the   governess,   Is  your back better?'   On wblchJ Princess  Victoria kindly asked  her what was  the matter with her back.   'Not much,  I   hope,'   quickly  answered   the   mischievous  boy  who   is   now  Emperor,  'for I scarce'.y feel mine now, but you  'l .*.<*c,  mother,  Frauleln  II.  has  such  a  i sympathetic,  back   thnt   lt  .begins   to.  j hurt  her   directly   she  commences   ta  ; cane  me,  ar.d   she  performed on   me  i thbs mornlnpr.' "  The Glass Eye.  .-ub-  The Deacon's Exhortation.  A white m'nlster was conducting religious .������ei-vices in a colored church in  North Carolina recently.

Thc following good story comes from  Ceylon:���������A t������a-planter���������he had a glass  eye���������waB very desirous to go and have  a day's shooting with a friend, but he  knew that Immediately the natives,  who were at work- on the plantation,  got wind that he was -away, they would  not do a stroke ot work. How was he  to get off?���������that was the question.  After much thought an Idea struck  him. Going up to the men, he addressed them thus; "Although I myself will be absent, yet I shall leave  ono of my eyes to see that you do your  work." Anrt. much to tbe surprise and  bewilderment of the natives, he took  out' the gla-3 eye and-placed It on the  stump of a tree and left. For some  tlmt the natives worked 'like elephants, now and then casting furtive  glances at the eye to see If lt was  still watching, but at last one of them,  seizing the tin ln which he carried "nis  food, approached the tree, ifxd gently  placed lt over the eye. As soon an  they saw that they were not being  watched they all lay down curd slept  peacefully until sunset.  Certain good people of Chicago hava  started a "No Breakfast League," tho  Idea being that breakfast is a  frivolous and unnecessary institution, ancl ought to be uuppressed.  People, they say, can work better and enjoy greater health by  starting for the city in the morning  without breakfast. On your way to  the station you drink ln the free air of  heaven; and as you sit in the train you  ibuckle up your waistcoat band anothor  Inch or two and feel a new-man.  There has been for many years a  "No Breakfast League" ln everything  but the name; although the members  of the League do not brag about their  connection with It. After what is popularly known as a "thick" night, breakfast has no, charms whatever for the  practised drinker. Perhaps this is the  Idea of the League. At any rate, anybody can start In tho no-breakfast  business for himself at any time. All  you have to do Is to mix your drinks  Judiciously ��������� the night before, so  that you will wake up in the  morning with a copper-colored  taste ln the mouth and general feeling that eating is a low and degrading  habit anyhow. At such times even a  sight of tho breakfast ham gives you  a dull, hard feeling ln the chest; and  when that s-tage is reached you will  be a No Breakfaster of the first water.  More than likely, however, that the  Chicago No Breakfasters are just tha  ordinary run of food cranks. H there  is one thing ln this world that you  cannot prudently do, lt Is to advise  your neighbor as to his dietary. And,  as a natural consequence, we all think  we know what is good and what is  bad ln the' .way of meals tor the people.  One man will tackle a breakfast big  enough to make a dinner for three  people, and If he hears that his neighbor's breakfast is limited to a slice of  toast and a cup of tea, he at once predicts a lowered vitality and an early  death. The tea and toast man, on the  other hand, will no doubt hold that his  neighbor Is killing himself by inches  with those heavy breakfasts; whereas,  ln these matters, it seems to be most  true that every man is the best judge  of what is good for himself. It is  very likely that a breakfast limited  to a run round the garden and a bit  of dumb-bell exercise may suit the Chicago people, but lt Is very Smprob-  ahle that it would suit everybody alike.  The average enthusiast is apt to  overlook the swing of the pendulum  when taking up the newest* cr e ln a  -whole-hearted manner. He will go  without his accustomed breakfast on  the first morning, and arrive at his  office in a peevish and lrritaible mood.  Somewhere about eleven o'clock he-  feels like throwing up the sponge, and ���������  sending the messenger out for a dry  biscuit or two; but In most cases he  will last out for the first experiment.  At lunch time, though, the swing of  the pendulum will come In. He has  got to take a lunch that will average up  to two meals', and in the first glorious  rush at the good solid food there Is  a very fair chance that he will overdo  the lovely business. The usual lunch  hour will drag Itself out into two hours  and" a half, or thereabouts; though It  would be idle to fix a limit to lt if lt  Is going to be the flrst meal of the  day under the new- rules. The novice  will eat���������and drink���������and the reaction  after the unaccustomed fast will turn  the meal into a considerable sort ot  orgle. "Thish Ish the first drop I've  'ad to-day, oie feller! 'Ave anuzzer  wlz me!   Whoo-oop!"  Where Is this No Everything going  to leave off? They will carry these  self-denying ordinances al.*ng till  something occurs that will s. .nv the  public that the wrong tack Is being  pursued. The papers the other day  said that a Russian scientist had discovered that all the ills tho flesh In  heir to are due to our wearing���������  clothes. Let somebody start a No  Clothes Society ln this happy land of  ours and see how it works. There  <vould be a busy time on the first  bright summer morning on which the  leaguers set out to justify their principles; and.the authorities would be  running round town ���������'buying up hundred-weights of trousers at contract  price for the morning's batch o������ prisoners roped Into the official strongrooms. A league of this sort .would  .impress, the public with its stupidity,  whereas you~cah't~teirby-merely-look--  !ng at a man whether ho has had his  breakfast or not. And, as we know,  what we can't see we don't trouble  about 'to any extent.  Some people who profess to be very  wise tell us from timo to time that  the average man eats too much. If  the average man who hears the good  news gets Innuenced by.it, the chances  ;ire that he will thin his diet down a  Utile, nnd thus save money for the  il'ietor's bills that he will thereby Incur. The average man, as a rule, cat*  v.hat he thinks ho wants. To som������  extent, he has probably learned by experience that a certain quantity of  fr.ntl is necessary for his well-being.  n-.d as soon as that quantity has become a habit he runs a considerable  i-i. Vc In changing lt, for use Is second  nature. The scientist sits down and  calculates that so many ounces of food  are sulficlent for an ordinary man, and  calmly assumes that the last word on  the subject has been said. Whereas.  In the case of two men of equal size,  one will often be* satisfied with a dinner of oatmeal porridge and tt,  glass of water, while the other will  want soup, flsh. Joint, and cheese, and  then as likely as not will want to ordei  somo biscuits , with his wine Just ito  fill up the still aching void.  You can't lay down a hard-and-fast  rule In these matters; and if the No  Breakfasters are going to have a free  run In the country, I for one shall  advocate an Increase of accommodation In our lunatic asylums. It has  long been a favorite rule of the medical profession that people ourtt**t to  eat suppers; nnd If we are now to be  advised to do without torcalcfaat as  well, we might as well go the whole  hog and live the higher life on two dry  biscuits and a scldlltz powder per  diem.���������"PIck-Me-Up."

In a skull���������I think of ' .Tose Sllr  verlo. It was in old Madrid, the' ro-'  mantle city of guitars, dark eyes, love,  and bull-lights; where the statue, of  tho Virgin stands ln the public square  with the late King AlConso;s fatal,  sapphire burning blue on her carven  fiii3-er. - To tbo" light Hit of merry  music Jose Silverio, the handsome  toreador, idol of all tho young bloods  and beloved by ha.lf the fair women  of Madrid, rode Into the ring. A murmur of admiration greeted him���������he was  splendid in spangles and mounted'on*  a magnificent white horso. . After him  came his scarlet-cloaked matadors on  foot, armed'with light lancos fluttering  wilh .streamers of many-colored ribbons. The bull's hoarse bellow struck  Into the music like the.* deep, mellow  note of a bass viol.* He was already  In the ring pawing up_, the sawdust  defiantly, a superb animal of tho heist'  b-.-erd ot Andalusia, with delicate  hoofs, curving horns, and a. skin like  black satin, i under which thc fierce  muscles constantly rippled. Tho  toreador lift'ed his dark, ' passionate  eyes to a box above, where eyes equally  dark, equally passionate, answered his  mute, adoring' message. The senorlta  was ln black, the usual dress affected.  In public by'Spanish women of high  degree. A diamond star sparkled on  her full bosom, and a crimson rose  caressed like the lips of a lover the  black, silken masses of her hair, ovei:  which a fold of the lace mantilla was  coquettlshly thrown.  An hour before he had passed the  flower between her window bars, and  he thrilled with exquisite joy to see it  glowing in her dusky braids. Thd  perfume of the rose, already wilting in  the hot amphitheater was wafted to  his nostrils with the woody smell of  fresh sawdust and musky odors from  hundreds of constantly mov.ihg fans.  Its Iragrance led him back in sweet  retrospection to a walled garden, dim  paths, checkered black and silver In  the moonlight, the pressure of a. soft  breast, braceleted arms, and red lips,  yielding kiss for kiss, while his blue-  ribboned, guitar lay silent In the' dew  at his Xoet. Then the bull, goaded to  splendid ferocity by the torturing bnn-  derlllos, mado his mad charge. The  ring became an inferno of hoofs and  horns, out- of which flashed the keen  lightning of the torea'dor's sword In a  cloud of dust. No one could tell afterward exactly how it happened, though  every eye was riveted on tho arena,  twit th-e white horse rolled over in his  death agony, disemboweled by ono  ewift stroke from those terrible twin  sabres fixed In the bull's powerful  forehead. By tho fraction of a second  Jose failed to slip his feet from the  stirrups in time to escape the second  charge. His body described a glittering arc ln the air, and fell lifeless In  the sawdust. The sword, sent spinning  from his hand, was caught by a matador, who delivered the coup do grace  to the bull by a feat of nimble cunning that elicited a thunder of applause. Even the'senorlta clapped her-  little jeweled hands. She leaned* ovor  the edge of'her box" to look down'at  the limp, Inert figure so full of proud,  courage and virile grace a. moment  ago.

Railroad Search-Lights.  One of the recent soifety equip- ���������  ments of the fast mall-trains,  which of necessity run at a high  rate of speed ���������Hhrouglh the nighit. Is the  electric search-light. A number of engines on the lending roads have been  supplied with such powerful search- '  lights that objects on the track'can be  seen nearly a mile away on the darkest nights. A small dynamo ln the en- ..  glne supplies the light, and the lamp  itself is so arranged that the' fireman ���������  can operate it from his position ln tht q  cab to suit the needs of the moment.  It was found that a permanent light  attached to the smoke-stack, as the  old-time reflectors wero, would cast Its  path of light off the track Instead of  on It when rounding curves. The fireman can now .touoh-a lever and throw  the light straight'ahead,-sideways, or  up In tho air. The. largest of these  locomotive search-lights* - are ' 6,000  candle-power, which,- compared to the  old-time reflectors, are remarkable)  products of the age. "''...-'  " "The :fast mall-trains travel* over the.  grouiul-iw.o .rapidly   that   an   ordinary  head-light casting a-reflection lour or '.>  flve hundred feet is practically of little  use.

"Not to the same extent as In���������more  advanced lands," answered Count Matsukata with a smile.

The count "was" requested to tell the  legend, and he said:  "In the dim historic dawn a.mor-  "charit-eager"for-grcat- weulUvMieard-of-  a strange grove of wild lemon- trees  whose fabulous - fruit, when, oaten,  would convert. the hand that plucked  it Into gold.  "So the merchant, journeyed to the  grove, where the C'd of niches, with  a great sack on Ms -boulders, bade him  help himself. He d'.d so, and his arm  was converted Into gleaming gold. This  he had amputated, and, though bereft  of an arm, became a man of wealth.  "A banker, hearing of the strange  case, determined to secure the total  produce of the miraculous lemon trees.*  To that end lie bought out the right of  the guardian deity; but that shrewd  being exacted so great a price that the  covetous banker found his fortune depleted. To secure ready money .he determined to eat of the fruit and sacrifice an arm.  "Raw lemon, however,'was* too astringent for his pampered palate, and  so he sweetened the Juice of several  lemons, and, adding thereto -wine .of  rare.vintage, drank greedily of the potent and tempting beverage.

"Then, his heirs melted him down,  coined Wm Into 'convenient cobangs,  and, turning their backs bravely on the  grove of golden lemons, proceeded with  free hands to spend and enjoy their  liountlful inheritance."  "What became of that lemon grove?"  enquired a vigilant New Yorker who  had listened eagerly to the*story.

Sermon by ,  JUNIUS B. REMENSNYDER,  '. St. James' Lutheran Church, Now York.  Bear ye one  another's burdens,  and ������������������  fulfil the law of Christ.���������Gal., vt., 2.  These words assume that this is a  fcurdtn-bearing world. ' Each one has a  burden of his own, and each one's neighbor has a burden. No individual, no  family ia exempt. Upon every shoulder  rest* some load, every heart is bowed  fiown with some trouble, every rose ol  Joy Is barbed with its thorn of grief.  And this bearing of burdens is a very  Ulfferent thing from labor, "fhe Greek  carefully distinguishes the terms. "Po-  tema," a work, is an inspiring labor.  But '."bares," the word used in oiir text,  means a weight, a dull, heavy load���������  trying to bear. A healthy person enjoys nothing so much as mental or bodily activity. The busiest is the happiest  of men. But to struggle under a burden is another thing. That taxes the  bodily powers, exhausts the nerve force,  takes the buoyancy from the spirits  and the light from ' the eye. Work  strengthens, worry kills.  Borne, by exceptional health, good  fortune and exalted station, are more  ���������r less exempt from these burdens,  others have been so placed by birth or  by the Btrange orderings of Providence  or by their errors and vices as to be  especial burden bearers. Very little of  tight or ease or gladness do they iind  In their lot. Theirs to plod and grind  and. eke out a weary existence. And  there are far more of*-this class than  we suspect. As George Eliot says:���������  "There are burdens often unknown to  the world, for there is much pain that  Is quite noiseless, and vibrations that  make human agonies are often an inarticulate whisper in the roar of hurrying existence."  Now, it was the peculiarity of Christ  that Ue addressed His mission to this  -very aspect of humanity.* Sympathy* for  the world's sorrows was His master motive. Not as other great leaders crossed the human stage seeking their own  did He;'but, forgetting Himself, His  sole aim was to lighten the world's burdens. And this He did by taking them  . His own shoulders.   As Isaiah pro-  Eied of Him:���������"Himself took our in-  tles and bore our .sicknesses." ' And  Bt. Peter writes:���������''He bore our eins in  Uiis.ewn body on,the tree." He thus  illustrated that principle, of vicarious  suffering���������not alone physical, but moral���������which Is shot through the whole web  ef nature. Bay what sceptics will, it is  tills" fellowship of Christ to the very  core of our condition, taking upon Him  sot alone our sorrows but our sins as  well���������i. e., His mission as*Saviaur and  'Ck>od Samaritan���������that above all has  "raised-Him to tbe throne of haman love  and adoration.  And what Christ did Himself He asks,  '- in a degree, of His followers.   St. Paul  here  tells  lis   that   the* summary   and  epitome of His moral teaching are *ex-  .    (tressed in this maxim:���������"Bear, ye  one  -   another's "burdens, and so fulfil the law*  of Christ.'.' . Faith is as vital to Christianity as the star to the ray, the spring  to the' stream, the root to the tree.   But  love,  charity,   fellowship in trial,  need  and sorrow are the test, the fruit, tho  outcome. ' He who does* not verily his  .profession by thiB practical  sympathy  -��������� ��������� does not obey the law of Christ, does  ���������ot show His spirit and is no Christian.  '.This gospel charges upon us not an  ���������motion, but an act; not a feeling, but  a'duty.  Sympathy, with many, is more  the.indulgence of a luxury of sentiment  than anything else.   As such it is one of  the most common,  as well as one  of  the cheapest  and' most useless, qualities.   Their emotions of fellowship aro  all spent with the gush of tears.

The  verse  preceding  our  text  shows how we can, t.o, lighten his moral burdens.    It ren-Js:���������"Brethren, if a  ,' mas bo overtaken in a fault, ye whieh  are spiritual, restore such a one in the  spirit of meekness; considering thy-ie'f,  list  thou  also, be  tempted."    That  is,  even when our broth������r goes wrong there  is a way.to help him hear his self-inflicted burden.  "Inste.id of harshly censur-  ��������� ." ing and  Pharisaically condemning  him  .We should with sympathetic and charitable chidlngs aim at the sanie time to'  make him sensible of his error and yet  to  save  his  self-respect.    If  ever  this  world ie saved It will be saved not by  coming down like a sledge hammer upon  human    failings,    but    by manifesting  everywhere that sweet Christ spirit that  allows for human weakness and seeks  ever 'to/Strengthen that weakness' with  God's own strength.

"Harper's "Weekly."  For the last hundred years artificial flowers have been the dearest  decoration a woman could buy for  her summer lhat. The superlative  has a dloubls meaning In thl3 connection ��������� "dear" to feminine purse-  Btrlnga, Immeasurably satisfying to  her sense of the artlsitlc and appropriate. No one, not even the most  logical man, coul* deny the daintiness  of thd instinct that led women to be-,  deck their multitudinous heads iwlth  toples of the sweetest things Divinity  sets down upon this rolling ball. So lt  was that all these years, from her  palace in tha center of her kingdom,  Fashion each spring sent out her unassailable decree that flowers were to  "deck hats.  At first the word "artlflclal" was always used in speaking or writing of  linen or silk posies. Old "fashion  Items" contain many allusions to "artificial roses," "artlflclal Ulies-of-the-  valley,"���������always to Impress upon the  reader that real flowers were not  meant. Of late years the adjective has  ���������been almost entirely eliminated from  the dictionary of the writer who dishes  up modish delicacies. Nowadays, a  hat Is trimmed with "violets;" a boa  Is of "forget-me-nots." No woman���������  and not often a man���������is so Ignorant aa  to imagine anything else but artificial  flowers Is meant.  The making of these beautiful Imitations of Nature's handiwork became  a vast enterprise employing the skilled  labor of thousands of men, women, and  girls. In many .parts of the world the  trade of artlflcial-flower-maklng descended from mother to daughter.  ���������Whole families for generations cut,  pasted, stitched and colored the beautiful evidences of their skill.  Until recent years the aim was always to make artlflclal flowers, successful counterfeits of Nature's own  darlings. Every one knows that the  work was often done so ably as to defy  the eye's -discernment. At this time  the art of artificial flower-making attained its highest perfection. The more  lalthful the likeness ot. the imitations to the originals the better the  pay of the maker, and the greater the  stimulation to effort.  Then; came a creeping in of the grotesque and unnatural. Now and then  Queen Fashion sent out edicts establishing the position of green roses, red  lilacs,, purple carnations, and all sorts  of Inartistic, even ugly, effects In artificial flowers. The unending search  for novelty began it. Newness, no matter how unseemly, appeals to most  people for a time. Then comes a reaction, when the full commonness of a  popular fancy strikes people, and they  put bhe whole, good and "bad, aside for  a period of dormancy. When the Imitation blossoms of fantastic proportions and bald ugliness came to.be the  style, artlflcial-flower-maklng was a  doomed industry. Milliners looked  about for some artistic and new substitute. ^The hat Itself, whloh from our  great-grandmother's time down had  been a thing of shape only, offered  great possibilities for lngenl. s Ideas.  ���������About three years ago fancy braids  began to flood the market; wire frames  were made with greater care than  ever; all sorts of fantastic and beautiful effects were brought out in straw  hats, whloh needed no' extra adornment other than a trifle of ribbon,  chiffon, -or .lace���������and artificial ..flowers  ���������went off Fifth avenue to dwell among  the folk .who live on the outermost  edge of Queen Flashlon's. realm, and  read her royal mandates through poverty's  spectacles. " ,  Last year there were more fancy,  atraws, and dozens of carefully planned  ehapes in hats, and this season  the demand for the new straws has  driven many dealers ln artificial flowers out of business. During the month  of April four heretofore prosperous  firms were obliged to close their doors.  One of these, a large wholesale house  dealing exclusively In artificial flowers,  ���������went Into bankruptcy, giving as the  eole reason for so doing that there  was no demand for their goods.  So long as the straws are as dainty  and durable as they are this spring  the situation,'is not likely to change.  A .walk past the series of fashionable  Fifth' avenue., millinery shops establishes the truth , of this assertion.  There.are whole windows-displaying  only hats of straw whose sole trlm-  -mlng-ls-rlbbon;��������� lace,���������er��������� chlfton.^IL  seems a pity,' when one thinks of the  daintiness of the artificial flowers of  past days, but there is no help for lt  until women tire of fancy straws and  long for other novelties. Then the Industry .will awaken. In' the meantime  hundreds of girls and women who have  no other employment are hopelessly  out of work.  Keble's Mistake.  Mainly About People.

At the funeral of a lawyer of state  reputation, who lived and practised in  a town not far from Philadelphia, and  who was known among his friends as  an unbeliever, an eminent gentleman  from Philadelphia reached the house  after the minister had begun the sermon. Not knowing how far the service  had progressed, he accosted a well-  known Quaker of the town, who was a  friend of the deceased, and who was  noted for his great sense of humor,  and, leaning over his shoulder, asked  ln a whisper: "What part of the services have they reached?" To which  the Quaker, without a smile, replied:  "Just opened for the defence."

But Napoleon was not done with yet,  and AVaterloo brought its reward, for  the Duke, after being thanked by Parliament "for the consummate ability,  unexampled exertion and irresistible ardor displayed by him on the eighteenth,"  received an additional sum of ������200,000  for the purchase of lands, to be held by  him and his heirs on the tenure of rendering a tricolor flag on every ISth of  June.

The Cape Breton mines,  for example, can load almost directly  from shaft to deep-water ships.and there  are others at the * head of the Bay of  Fundy which arc only a few miles from  the sea. In either case the journey to  Boston or New York is only a matter  ol three or four days.for tramp steamers, and, with good luck, not much more  for sailing vessels. To be sure, the  Nova Scotian coal is not of superfine  quality, hut it is good enough for many  purposes and would serve, almost all at  a pinch, especially with the experience  in burning had or low-grade coal of our  own which the strike has forced'many  consumers'- to acquire���������to the vast de-  flight,-and^profit. of_tlie_spccu1atoi">__wlio_  had enormous quantities of it in store,  waiting for just such an opportunity for  unloading on the dear puhlic as ' thr  stiike has given them. The country i*=  neither so helpless nor so uninformed as  the mining men, both those wlio wear  black broadcloth''and those who occasionally deign to don blue- cotton, seem  to imagine. '  Farming  With   GcltUnga.  Tho American plan of farming with  geldings, as non-productive as a mule,  is a useless expense that should be  changed to the adoption of breeding  marcs, especially in.tho heavier grades,  for geldings, v-lien matured, will be an  expensive In:.-my that farmers can ill  nfTord, how;...' jrc-.il farm teams they  make, when a y i.-.n use mares that  are quite as goou .it the farm work, and  raise a valuable colt each year, as in  France, 1-highmd and Scotland, where  the draft horses arc raised almost entirely by the'fiirmers, and the maturing  gelding!*, and surplus mares'are the most  important income of tlie farm. The  English Live Stock Journal tells how  the Eiiglhsh fanners manage: When thc  foaling season comes, and the working-  hoise strength is weakened through the  brood marcs being otherwise engaged,  their places should be filled, up with  young animals. The two-year-olds which  have not looked through the collar  should be taken in hand and put gently  to work, and if they are numerous  enough to give them half a day each,  ho that two take thc place of one horse,  so much the better for the colt and its  owner. If there is no plowing to be  done they can be pul. to sculilc or drag  on the root land, a*'d on a grass farm  the operation of breaking need not be  neglected. The colt or filly may be attached to a log of wood���������of course, with  a rein and man to lead on their side���������  for a start, then to chain-liarrows, which  can hardly be used too much on pastures, and in this way be got tractable  enough to pull its portion when required in the room of the mare which is  nursing a foal to prow on and take its  place in the team in due time.  In his paper on,"Waltor Scott's Land"  In Harper's for June, William Sharp tells  how the great novelist met his lirst and  only love :���������  "It was at the stage when 'the queer-  ness and the fun' of the bygone timo  and the present hour were with him  more than any other conscious compelling influence," Mr. Sharp says, "that,  one day in his twenty-iifth year, with  his friend, Adam Fergusson, he went for  a ride 'by Gilsland moors,' over by Na-  worth, perhaps, or by Lannercost Priury,  above the vale of Lannercost, or by tlie  fragmentary ruins of Triermain Castle,  where Sir Roland de Vaux lived and  dreamed, as afterwards so musically set  forth in 'The Bridal,' or by Burdoswald  Farm and the ruins of the great wall of  Severus and the Roman camp. Perhaps  the young poet's heart was longing for  love ; at any rate, it was at UiUlnnd,  and before he met Miss Carpenter, that  he gave *to a lady,' along with some  wildllowers gathered in the fragments of  Severus' wall, these two all-but-t'orgot-  ten fugitive quatrains :���������  "Take these flowers wliich, purple waving,  On the ruin'd rampart grew,  Where, the sons of freedom braving,  Rome's  imperial  standards   flew.  Warriors from the breach of danger  Pluck no longer laurels there;  But they yield the passing stranger  Wildflower wreaths for Beauty's hair.  "In any case it was on high ground  near Gilsland that, one August day in  1 97, Scott and Adam Fergusson were  riding, when both young men were  charmed by the apparition of a beautiful  young girl, also on horseback. So much  impressed, indeed, was the young poet-  advocate that ^e kept the. fair horsewoman in vie-w till the divided cavalcade entered Gilsland, and he saw where  the lady lived. Whoever wants to know  more of the picturesque details, where  fancy only slightly colors fact, may turn  to the romance of Frank Osbaldlstone  and Diana Vernon, as set forth in 'Kob  Roy.' Well, there was waiting and  wooing and ultimately pledging'by the  Lovers' Stone in the romantic glen of  Gilsland Water, and by Christmas the  young couple were married, and Walter  Scott returned to Euinburgh with much  never-to-he-forgotten material for poem  and tale, and a bride to give color and  zest to all he should do with these."  Fowl confined in very dry pens are  liable to the disease called bumble-foot.  This may be prevented by throwing wet  grass into the pen.  Green food is absolutely necessary for  the brooder chicks, and grit comes under the same category. A little charcoal should be fed daily; one tablespoonful in feed suilicicnt for 100 chicks is  enough.  Pumpkin seeds contain a medicinal  principle which, in large quantities, proves poisonous to chickens and turkeys,  and is probably injurious to cows.  Where large quantities of pumpkins are  fed in the open air and chickens eat the  seeds, some become paralyzed in the  legs, while others walk as though intoxicated. It would be well to remove  the seeds when pumpkins arc fed to  stock, for they probably counteract  much of the good thc fruit does.  A correspondent of Hoard's Dairyman  offers the following formula as a Hy repellent: Take about one-half teacupful  of the bi-sulphide of carbon and use this  to dissolve xi tablespoonful of pine tar,  stir thoroughly till the tar is dissolved  and add one quart .of crude oil.

Tho prison adventures of Mr. McHugh,  M.P., have brought forth the; recollection that Mr. McHugh's colleague in the  representation* of Leitrim, Mr. Jasper  Tully, who is also a journalist and the  proprietor of a couple of newspapers,  was once known as the "greatest jail-  goer in Ireland," although that record  and, distinction must hy this time have  passed into the possession of Mr. McHugh. Mr. Tully has practically retired  from, the jail-going business, whereas,  observes The Daily Chronicle, Mr. McHugh was never more energetic in il3  pursuit than in recent years. A wealthy  member of the Irish party once took a  West End mansion for the session, and  invited all his colleagues to an inaugural  dinner. The conversation became reminiscent, and the guests volubly exchanged jail experiences. The hostess alone  was not amused, hut distraught. In tho  morning her worst fears were realized.  The servants gave notice in a body. Unable to discriminate between political  aud ordinary offenders, they jumped to  the conclusion that they had blundered  into a den of criminals. The old practice of sending political offenders to the  Tower of London ought really to be revived. If an M.P. were able to start a  story with "When I was in the Tower,"  all the servant.9 in thc room would look  up and regard him as a hero.  Many seem to think that winter is  the only time when care and attention  are needed in the poultry yard, and that  the fowl can get along "any old way"  in the summer.   Work around, the poultry  houses  is  tiresome,  and  when  hot  weather   comes,   the   fowl   are   left   to  shift for  themselves.    A  greater mistake was never made.   Lice, the greatest enemy of the feathered tribe, multiply and liourish in  summer, and diseases get a foothold in the flock.    The  fowl,  often overcrowded and    suffering  from exposure to the hot suu,.droop and  lose their vitality, which they are liable  not to regain with the coming of cool  weather.   They should receive the most  careful    attention    now.      Their    food  should be given regularly, fresh  water  provided  in  abundance  and  the  dishes  kept clean and    placed   in tho    shade,  and     a   shelter    from   the   hot   sun  furnished.    The   poultryman   who  neglects his feathered charges will certain*  ly be punished, not in any mystical future of mysterious torture, but in the  loss of good hard cash now out of his  pocket, the place where the average man  is most sensitive.  And the same men almost .invariably  bite the tips off their cigars, instead of  using a penknife or a cigar-clipper���������a  shocking habit that not merely fills the*  mouth with tobacco grit, but disarranges the outer leaf, often spoiling an  otherwise excellent smoke.  The cigar once happily prepared for  smoking, observe how your man holds  It between his teeth. But stay! The  operation of lighting has also Its Interest. The tobacco epicure grips his cigar not merely with his teeth when applying the ,match, but with the finger  and thumb'of his left hand also, and  between every third puff draws the  weed from his mouth and examines ths  glowing end, in order to make sure  that it has been ignited equally all  round. .  The majority of men hold their cigars with the front teeth and puff the  smoke out on either side of it. A large  minority hold them in the corner of the  mouth, so that if you happen to be  walking behind them on a dark night  you catch sight of the glowing end  protruding just below the ear. Others,  again���������and .these, as a rule, are persons of vivacious temperament���������seldom keep their cigars for two consecutive moments .between their lips. They  take a few puffs, and then the cigar is  given a rest between finger and thumb.

Anv branch of fanning which incien.'cs  the general fertility of the farmland  while paying a living profit i- worth  more than another which steadily decreases thc productivity of thc <oil. nobbing the land to make present prolit is  an unwise proceeding. Sooner or Inter  we pay for it, and sometimes dearly.  Now, dairying, of all branches of funning, stands first in litis respect. It can  be conducted so that the farm kind will  steadily degenerate uulil the place i.- on  the verge of ruin .ind abandonment,  cr it' can be made to improve the "oil  yenr hy year.  In order to bring up a poor farm hy  dairying care should be taken not to  have more Btock than the land can afford. This is often the weak point in  dairying. A man keeps fifty cows 'on a  farm able to support only thirty or  forty. Thc farm is bound to run down.  There is nothing else to do except to  starve the stock or buy outside food,  which always means poor economy. It  Is better to sell off the stock, weed out  the poorest of the herd and keep only  so many ns the farm can support, an.l  leave a little something over. Do you  farm up to the very limit of the soil.  That is, do not take off each year quite  all that can be produced. Leave a little balance in the hank as a uucleui  for future accumulation. Dairymen make  this mistake and regret lt when it is  too  late.  As one succeeds in dairy fanning with  twenty acres, keeping a herd of cow? on  it so that they have ample to cat and a  little surplus over, more land cjn be  brought-under cultivation and the stock  Increased. About half the dairy farms  to-day need to have either the herd  cut in two or half the land abandoned.  That is, the former a'e raiding too many  cows to' the acre and robbing the soil  so that the farm is a little poorer each  year, and the latter are only half cultivating about twice as much land as  they are capable of handling with their  limited means. It is better to seed half  the land to grass, and let it go at that  and devote the attention to strenuons  cultivation of the remainder. A little  radical change like this will work wonders on many a rundown dairy farm.���������  E. F. Smith, in Michigan Fanner.  Expensive Loss of Temper..

Tlie ratepayers voted a sum  of money liu- the building ot this sidewalk, and the ratepayers who were to  benefit by its construction are natui"  ally indignant at Lhe delay. The  HeisaT.d is informed thnt the Mayor  has made the statement that owing to  the extra cost in thc improvements to  No. 1 fire hall the money voted for this  particular sidewalk has lieen applied  to meet the said extra cost.

Thu result of Saturday's game enli*  titles Kamloops lo the Fulton Cup for  tliis season. Although Kamloops won  the game their play wns not a bit  superior to that of lhe home team, in  fact taking the game all through  Kevelstoke had a little the hest of it,  but not finite mj much luck. The Hrst  g.une wns secured by Kamloops with'  in n minute ol' the start and for the  balance of lhaL quarter the hall was  conlinefl piincipally to Kevelstoke  territory. In the second quartet Mel'  ville, who was playing il star game,  evened things up for rtevulhtoke. The  third quarter was also distinctly in  favor of Kevelstoke and the boys  certainly hart hind lines in not scoring  two or 'more goals. The Inst quarter  was a hard fojght one. Kamloops  securing ii second goal ahout 5 minutes  before the call of time. No further  scoring was darie and the game ended  2 co 1 in favor of Kamloops. The  boys have no reason to feel discouraged  at the re-nit of the game, Lhey played  much better combination than the  visitors, but require to practise shooting on goal. Orealrix's long tin-owing  saved Kamloops repeatedly, while  Trimble, the Kevelstoke custodian,  made some, brilliant, stops. Kevelstoke  were without the services of two of  their regular team while Kmnloops  was strengthened by the. addition of  Nelson, who was not qualified to play  in the match at Kamloops.
