Taking the recent discovery made on  llie Russia ml-CrilPi-ion, owned and  operated liy the Ophir Lade s.yiidien.U',  nnd tlie strike on the Bfiilricc. goes  further to piove Llie values of llie Fish  Creek camp, than anything shown  heretofore. it, ench of the properties  named, which are wide upuit, as  greater depth ia reached, butter values  art* obtained than the sulfate indicated.  This is certainly lhe case with llie  Beatrice, ns it is an entirely new find  and the rich specimens brought down  prove lhat free gold in quantity exists  there. These discoveries, with active  operations on the Eva.and the above  named properties, will be the means of  showing to lhe investing public, what,  prizes actually exist in this camp. Il  is clearly evident, the-thing must  needed is development work, to show  the riches lhat, acLually exist here.  The massive- veins seen running  through this rich zone; needs only the  drill nnd energy to show what they  contain. That the camp is rich in free  milling propel ties goes without comment, as is already.proven in the Eva,  Rossland, Criterion,- Beatrice nnd  others. It is a inatter for us to wait,  until we get our stamp mills running  when the world will" realize what the  Fish Creek .camp .can do. XVe have  not long to  wait-for this, as two mills  should be in operation' on or about the  ,;    ,. .,- .* *   ���������    --    -     -  .   i  first "of-the year.-rV     .--  'a"V'- ���������  this riding the position of gold commissioner during your canvass for  the election of 'BS?  20���������When A.

FOUND ON  THE BEATRICE  Is It Dyspepsia ?_' ,  - Mr. Kellie has not taken the advice  of liis'-frierids "to' go awav back and  sit down," but comes back, like'the  cut, in the'' last issue" of the patent  medicine' paper published in the  morgue at the rear of tlie undertakers,  with" a' lot of "it's up to you "' generalities. Mr. Kellie like the editor of  the Mail has heen.. having a genuine  pipe dream. Mr. Kellie charges the  Hek.vld with accusing him of having  promised three gentlemen in this  riding the position of'Gold Connnis  sioner during tlie election of 1898.  What the Herald did say -was this:���������  "Is this the same 3. M., who it is  reported of him, that at the election of  ���������?08,.pi'omised_three.different gentlemen  Kootenay   "Lyre."  Mr. II. A. Powell, ex'M.P., is alleged  by the Kootenay, B.C., Mail, to have  decl-ired in a speech thai the Inter'  colonial R.iilway employes are "Lhe  scum oT lhe eaith," that lhe postoffice  stall' is "recruited fiom criminals,"  and that the French Canadians are all  tliat'is..bad. Mr. Powell is too wise a  man to make an}' such statements.  We wi������h the Kootenay Mail would  change its name and allow itself lo be  known in the future as the Kootenay  Globe. Its misrepresentations of  public men does injustice to ils title-  Toronto Mail and Empire. *  Th'e Hkiiald does not agree exactly  wilh the Mail Empire in its suggestion  to Uie Knoleiiay Mail to change its  .name to the Kootenay '-Globe." That  would be altogether too hard on the  Globe. For the. Globe in its best  efforts could uot equal our esteemed  in getting away froni the trulb.  There is_ an'an'cient instrument called  -tlie "Lyre" wh'i<:;h_iiame if-'adopted hy'  lhe,editor of the K'lOten'oy Mail would  fit in with the statements usually given  out by that paper. Kootenny "Lyre"  would be alright and it is now up to  Lhe Mail to adopt that name, as our  friend Mr. Kellie would say. "-   -.  For the sake of argument, supposing  Mr. Powell had said that some of the  editors of the newspapers in * this  province were Lhe "scum of the earth,"  would the editor of the Mail feel that  he had been named? .'  A Free Gold Strike is Made on  the Beatrice.���������The Yellow  Metal Plainly Seen.���������Mill Test  of 1,000 lbs.  On Wednesday last a rich fiee gold  strike was made on the Beatrice mint*,  nt a deeper point than the previous  'working*:. The vein just found is from  10 to 15 fret wide, wit h the yellow stuff  sticking right out of it. This discovery  makes lhe Beatrice (yu* of lhe most  valuable mines in the country, as it  has already been proven that it is the  richest galena property in this district  and with tho discovery cf free gold,  will considerably increase its, value.  The management are having supplies  packed to Ihe mine, for use during the  winter, it, being the'owners .intention  to carry on work vigorously during the  winter months. They are going to  ship 1,000 lbs. of ore from the new vein  as a mill test, which, from samples  shown, should equal anything in the  district.���������Camborne Miner.  Hitting the Pipe.  The editor of the,. Mail has had  another pipe dream.- - The Mail's  statement that the Ehiquesue Mining  Co., owners of the 'Blue Jay, are  interested in a big lumber deal on  Trout Lake is not true. Mr. Bradley,  manager "of the Duquesne. Mining Co.,  in i eply to a question in regard to the  Mail's report stated that the company  has no interest whatever in the lumber  deal. The, Herald will publish a full  and authentic report of the new lumber  deal when negotiations are completed  and the company are ready to give the  information to the public.     ,     ,  .,',  Quadrille Club.   -. ., -  The opening dance of the Quadrille  club was held in Selkirk hall on  Wednesday evening and proved a  "most enjoyable affair. * . The hall was  taxed to its utmost capacity and'  should the club continue to grow-at  the present rate, more commodious  quarters will have to be found. The  music was furnished hy the band  orchestra and was pronounced first  class. The next mesting of the club  takes place on Oct. 31st.  D0UKH0B0R  MISSIONARIES  Religious Fanatics Try to Spread  Their New Belie! in Other  Villages���������Another Thorn in the  Immigration Department.  A new phase of tlie Dotikhobor  question wliich is now disturbing the  nervous system of the Dominion gov  eminent'!** immigration department  hns arisen aud the ollicials of that  hard worked bureau are seeking a  way of relief. It is undei stood that  nothing has suggested itself as'yet.  The new trouble is this. The members  of the villages affected by the new unci  radical form of religious observance  have decided to sprend their doctrine,  and 'with that end in view about fifty  disciples have been sent forth to  inculcate the "gospel" as they understand it.  "What new trouble they will brew  is hard to conjecture," said a gentleman, newly arrived from the Doukho'  bor settlements to a reporter for The  Telegram last evening. "They have  attempted to secure concessions from  various states iu the union to the  south without avail. Now these  importations from Russia are going to  try to make some new trouble- heie  if they cannot carry their ideas  elsewhere."  He went ou to say that theVillages  where the disturbances are were largely confined to those inhabited by the  older people and the missionaries  heing sent out by them are of-the  most fanatical of the people. They  wear boots knitted out of binder twine  With wooden soles, and .some of the  most determined go",b*arefo8te&". Some  of them -,have;even . lefused'to wear,  woollen garments because the cloth is  .woven from material of animal growth  and have-attempted to clothe themselves with a coarse fabric,made from  flax. It i*������ coarse and must be exceedingly iiritating to the skin, but the  patient Doukhobors bear it unflinchingly. .  "I car.'t say what success these  Doukhobor  missionaries   are meeting  OCTOBER  of this riding-the office, of gold commissioner?" - .It . was . reported at the  -��������� - < -,  election that this was a fact and Mr.  Kellie  knew ��������� it' and   never took the  trouble to  deny   it.  .Mr.  Kellie has  asked the Herald to apologize., The  Hkrald" will, do   so and at the same  time prescribe for Mr. Kellie's mental  infirmities',  if 'Mr.   Kellie will answer  to tlie satisfaction of the Herald the  following questions, the first seventeen  of which were taken from the fourth  -j  column of page 2 of the last issue of  the Mail and next to Mr. Kellie's  effusion of pure reading matter, and  just ahove "Baby's First Tooth":  DOES YOUR FOOD DISTRESS YOU?  Are you nervous?  Do you feel older than you use d to?  Is your appetite poor?  Is your tongue coated with a slimy,  yellowish fui'?  Do you have dizzy spells?  Have you a bad taste in tlie mouth?

There were  no fish in'sight, but a bulging coat p *<:k-  ���������ct suggested tlmt the day had not been  entirely unproductive. .Shortly afler  liis entry at l.V������lh street, he foil asleep  and snored beuriily.

Tlie fact that he was asleep  tet them jrlgjling lo the point of s.t*".ing-  ulation. When '.'.icy had exhausted the  possibilities of mirth tn this direction,  lhey began to talk about their -'gcntle-  men  friends."

"Oh, Tessie," she tittered "look at  "the glass-eye glare OB the old guy opposite."  "What's he rubbering at?" giggled  her companion. "You must have made  a hit with bim."  "You could knock his eyes ofT with  B stick," remarked the first. "Maybe  he's goin' to have a fit."  "Gues3 he thinks the snoozcr in the  corner's his long-lost brother. Do you  Oohl Ow!

"He's  got it in'his pocket."*  They fl������*d up the aisle. Everybody ;n  the������������������ vicinity looked at the slumbering  fishnsiian. " Fro������ his pocket tliere protruded a long, waring neck, which terminated ln a wicked reptilian head, set  vith beady: eyes.  For a moment the head vacillated,  then withdrew into the pocket. A gasp  ���������came from the women iii the car. The  -fisherman slept on.  'Presently a maiden lady of undecided  years, but decided aspect, came in a-id  planted herseli firmly beside the angler.  A youth across the way, with a varicolored hatband and altruistic notions of  iis duty lo his fellow-creatures, immediately addressed her.  "Excuse me, lady, but 1 wouldn't sit  there," he  said.  "Oh, you wouldn't!" Bhe retorted,  '^vlth unexpected and brisk argumentativeness. "Well, nobody wants you to  sit here. Vou couida't sit here if you  --wanted to. Whv wouldn't you "sit  tiere?"

At the next station a fat,  pompous little man came in, made ior  ihe aeat,   ������atr the  turtle   and  started  back In indignant surprise. Seizing tha  fisherman by the arm he shook him.  "What's the matter? This my station?" inquired that worthy, sitting  up.  "Is that your turtle?" demanded tlio  newcomer,  "Huh?   Oh; yes, that's my turtle."  "Did you pay for him?"  "What?    Pay for him?   Of course, I  didn't pay for him.    I caught him."  "Don't dodge the question. Did you  buy a ticket for that creature?"  "Oh, you give me a pain," said the  fisherman ������ot unreasonably.  "If you didn't he has no right to occupy that seat," insisted the pompous  man with a note of triumph in his  voice.  "All right; put him ont, then."  '  "I'm  not  responsible  for   him.    That  is for you to do."  "Yes", but he won't mind me," said  the fisherman, confidentially. "I'll show  you.

"This is outrageous. 1 insist on having lhat scat."  "Help yourself, then. The turtle probably won't mind sharing it with you."  "Guard! guard!" culled the pompous man, passionately. "Here is a  man putting his 'filthy pets on the seats  of this car. I call upon you to eject  him."  "Well,.I  don't want to get into no  trouble,"   began thc guard, cautiously.  "He's carrying live   stock.   Do   you  allow live stock on your trains?"  "If they don't I'll have you tired,"said  the fisherman. "There's a live stock  crawling around your hat now. You  brought him in with you."  The fat man hastily removed his hat.  A plump beetle made friendly overtures to him with its forelegs.  "He's giving you the sign," said tho  fisherman, gleefully.  "Nonsense!" growled the other.  "That isn't live stock; that's an insect,  a bug."  "So's a turtle. So arc you," said the  fisherman.  "A turtle is not a bug. It's a creature."  "It's a reptile," said a man across the  way.  . The youth with the hatband expressed the opinion that it was a niollusk,  and an excitable old lady in a cross seat  said jt was a shame, but didn't go into  detail*..  "A turtle's a fish; that's what it is,"  said the guard. "A man's got a riglit  to carrv home the* fish he catches."  "Well, a fish hasn't got any right to  a Beat," declared the pompous man.  "Anyway, it ain't a fish. A lish has  scales."  "Xit," said the youth. "Ever see any  scales on a clam? A" clam's a fish,  ain't'he?"  "A turtle Is a crustacean, like a crab,"  said the elderly man, who sat near tho  youth.  "Like a lobster," said the pompous  man, moaningly.  "No it's  a bug,  only it lives,in thc  water," said an anaemic citizen in  the  opposite corner.    "Sort of a water bug."  "Go 'way,"  said the youth.    "Water  bugs live on land."  "Thc water bug3 in my place live on  pie," said the elderly man.  "Well, I know it's'a ,fish," insisted tli3  guaTd.    "It swims under water."  "So does a mosquito wiggler, but t  don't suppose you'd call lhat a fish."  said the pompous man, contemptuously.  "Well, gents, it's an interesting discussion," said the fisherman,.''and I'hate  to leave you but here's our station.  Settle it among yourselves."  He yanked the turtle into his pocket  and left. But all thc way down, tho  heated discussion as to the trciuis, species and life habits of turtles raged,  and by the 'time' the Battery was reached five Indignant citizens had agreed to  meet nt the Aquarium next day and  let the superintendent settle the beU.  ss>  Mexican Girls.  UCH   lias   been   written   of   the  beauty of the sonoritas o������ Mexico.   Many a tourist goes tliere  with    exalted    Ideas    of    the  charms of the high-caste young women  with raven hair, soft olive complexions  und   bewitching   eyes.     Evidently   the  charms of that matchlessly balmy climate and  the wonderful plcturesque-  ness of scenes everywhere have blurred  the critical vision of many of the writ-  erg,  and as a result  they dwell upon  the beauty of the senorltas.   However,  according  to  one  Mexican  correspondent,   the  beauties  are  by   no  means  plentiful.    "A large part of the Mexican   young   women   have    prominent,  heavy   noses.     This   characteristic   Is  more  noticeable  among  the  people  in  the rural pueblos In the valleys.   From  fourteen to twenty, most senorltas arc  In their prime so far ns facial beauty  is concerned.    From  twenty  to  thirty  tho dark pigment In their complexion  develops rapidly,  ana nine out ot ten  of them ruin the softness of their complexions by inordinate use of the cosmetics and face washes which comprise  a surprisingly large proportion of  the  national imports from Europe and the  United   States.    There   Is   no   denying  that the eyes of the average Mexican  girl, except in the lowest classes, have  a peculiar mildness.    The long, heavy  eyelashes over the dark eyes give an  expression   of  seriousness  and  pathos  that one never forgets.   The hair of the  senorita Is seldom fine and flossy.   All  the women in the peon class dock their  -coarse  hair squarely across  the forehead, while the young. women of the  upper class deck their foreheads with  ���������an infinite lot of frizzes and intricate  mazes of finely spun curls.   A curious  fact is that some of the old families in  Mexico have followed a fashion in hair  arrangement, characteristic of the particular family, for several generations.  For Instance, there is the rich and powerful Yorba family of Chihuahua.   Every woman in the family for more than  one hundred years has frizzed, curled  and plastered her hair after the style  Grandma Yorba (a famous belle in her  day and an acquaintance of old Queen  Mercedes) adopted in the last days of  Spanish dominion over Mexico. The exquisite black-lace mantilla shading the  eyes, the high comb, and the coral and  pearl jewelry become a senorlta more  than they would any other woman In  the: world.    Perhaps  it is the oddness  of these graceful charms that has won  the general praise of so many visitors  to Old Mexico.   The senorita at the opera,  with her coquettish  fan,  her be-  rosed': hat, and7 her gorgeously colored  silken gowns, looks very attractive, but  at close range only a few of the women have the freshness, the vigor and  the   clear-cut,   refined    expressions  of  American  young  women   of  like . station."  Invaders of the Sanctum.  A united states newspaper once announced that a notorious thief, well  known locally, had been lynched for  horse-stculing. Thc man called at tho  oflice, 6ound in wind ��������� and limb,  and demanded a withdrawal of tho  unfounded statement. "We cannot retract," said the editor; "we never do."  "But the 'Mail,' whieh published a similar report, hns withdrawn it," said the  man. "That may be," replied the editor.  "The report appearing in the 'Mail' was  no doubt without foundation; but oui'  news is always true. However, we don't  mind saying in tho next issue that the  rope broke, and that you escaped with  a, slight contusion."  If a story told in journalistic circles  be well founded, a somewhat similar incident occurred in London. One day a  gentleman called at thc ollice of a well-  known newspaper and said to the editor,  m famous man in his time: "Sir, it is announced in your paper that I am dead."  "Well," replied tlie editor, "if it is in our  ?apcr it ia correct." "lt is not correct,  or here I am alive," rejoined the other.  "Well, it can't he helped," said the editor. "But I expect you to contradict it,"  ���������aid the gentleman. "No, I cannot do  that," said the editor, "as we never contradict anything that appears in our  Sapcr. I will do the only thing I can  o to bring you to life ngain. To-morrow I will put you in thc list of births."  Sometimes the editor gets the better  of these: unpleasant intruders into his-  sanctum. A friend of ours was seated  In his editorial chair in a Yorkshire  town, quietly snipping paragraphs from  contemporary journals, when in walked,  unannounced, a big, ferocious-looking  man with a heavy stick in his hand. "Is  the editor in?" he asked. Tho menacing  tone in which the question was put showed  that he had not come to make a friendly callj to,insert an advertisement, or to  pay a subscription to the journal. "No,  sir," replied, the editor, with admirable  presence of mind���������r"he has just gone out.  Take a seat and read the paper; he will  return in a minute." Down sat the indignant visitor, crossing his legs, with  his club between them, and commenced  reading a paper. In the meantime the  editor quietly vanished downstairs, and  at the landing he met another excited  man, with a cudgel in his hand, who also  asked if the'editor was in. "Yes, sir,"  vas the prompt response, "you will find  bim seated upstairs, reading a newspaper." The second visitor, on entering  the room, commenced a violent assault  upon the first, which was resisted with  equal ferocity. The fight wns continued  till they both rolled to the foot of the  stairs and had cudgelled each other to  their hearts' content.  A Fox's Revenge.  Effect of Odors; Upon '9111k.  The power of absorbing odors is one  possessed in a marked degree by milk.  If, for instance, we,leave a bowl of-milk  in thc neighborhood of an uncorked bottle of sewage water, we should find in  a very few hours that the milk was con.  siderably affected thereby. Tests have  .ibeenjarried, out in. which milk has been  A gentleman out shooting one day  came to a river, where he saw six  geese beyond shot, lie determined to  wait for them to approach the shore.  While sitting there he saw a fox come  down to the shore and stand some  time and observe Uio geese. c-At length  he turned and went into the woods and  camo out with a very large bunch ot  moss in his mouth! " He then entered  the water very silently, sank himself,  and then, keeping the moss above the  water, himself' concealed, he floated  among the geese. Suddenly one ot  them was drawn under the water, and  the fox soon appeared on the shore  with the goose on.his back. He ascended the bank, and found a hole  made by the tearing'up of a tree. This  hole he, cleared, placed in it the goose,  and covered It with great care, strewing leaves over It. The fox then left;  and while he was away the hunter un-  burled the goose, closed the hole and  resolved to wait the issue. In about an  hour the fox returned with another fox  in company: They went directly to the  place where the goose ;had been buried,  and' threw out the earth. The goose  could not be found. They stood regarding each other for some time, when  suddenly the second fox attacked the  other, most furiously, as If offended by  the,.trick of: his friend. During the  battle the hunter shot them both;  New Round Dances.  placed near various strong-scented sul>"  stances, and at the end of eight hour3  the  odors  could, more or less;   be  distinguished  in the  milk.     The   odors of  turpentine,   onions,  tobacco   smoke   and  rotten fish were strongly absorbed; those  of musk and camphor only to a: alight  extent.      This shows how important it  is that milk should be kept among clean  and fresh surroundings,    and this point  should he kept in mind hy both producers  and consumers.      Milk "should"never*be  kept  in  the bedrooms of  sick' persona,  and milk should never be drunk which  has been near anyone suffering frcSm in-  fec-tious  disease.      It  is  a   well  known  fact   that  the  food    consumed  by  tho  cows has an influence not only upon the  composition  of  the milk,  hut upon  its,  ta**ie   and   od'ois.       lt   appear*!,   moro-  ovur,  that the  milk    in  the  udder  can  cvn lit; afTcctcd if tlie cows breathe an  atmosphere charged with    odorous* particle.*,  of  dis.igree.iblc    smelling    ga-oi.  The odor ot* carbolic acid quickly allfcts  the flavor of the milk, and evenalso thc  flesh of the animal.      Hence it is advisable,  when houses  have been' "disinfected'with* this acid, not to allow therein  any milch cows or animals shortly to be  butchered   until   the  smell   has   entirely  passed off.       If cows arc kept in stnl-lea  Tccently washed with carbolic acid, their  milk, cither raw or cooked, will lmve a  most disagreeable flavor.      Tn short, we  must supply  milking stock with  plenty  of food and pure, fresh air, and he careful that the houses and surroundings nre  kept1   perfectly    clean.���������C.     G.

Three new round   dances have   just  been   approved   and   adopted   by   thc  Normal    Association     of    Masters     of  Dancing of tho United States and Canada, which rccontly met in New York.  Tliey  are the Military  Dip Waltz, the  Olympia  Schottisehe,  and tlie Antler's  Gavotte.   The Military Dip Waltz is said  to be the simplest* and most graceful of  tho three.    It has been predicted that  this dance will sweep the country, and  may take the place of the two-step in  the  matter 'of  popularity.    The  movements are thus described:  Take a position facin" your partner, as if for waltzing.   The left-foot of both lady, and gentleman should be in the fourth, position,  front;  that is, about the length of one  step in front of the right foot.   At .the  beginning of the strain the gentleman  dip3 forward upon his left and tho lady  backward upon her right; then both reverse  tho   movement.     The   gentleman  next makes a quick change, stepping forward on the left and then on the right.  The balance is repeated in this position,  the two dip movements having occupied  just* four measures  in  all.    From  this  point glide into the'waltz, waltzing four  measures; then repeat the balance movement again, and so on ad libitum.   The  dance is* simple,  easy,  and  fascinating.  The Olympia Scliottische is designed for  the more agile and" spirited dancers.   It  is begun,in the open position assumed  for any schottisehe, the gentleman holding the lady's left hand with his right,  the two facing one another.    The lady  starts with thc right foot, the gentleman  with   the   left.    Dip   backward with   a  graceful hcnd of  knee, then bring the  rear foot forward and rise on the toes.  Repeat  the  movement  with  the   other  foot; glide four times to the riglit, re-  peat-_both_movRments,_f_ace_forward_and  nop on left foot, kicking right with toa"  touching the floor;   then hop on right,  kicking left.    "SText  assume  the  closed  position and   take   four   glides,   a  half  turn, finishing with four more glides in  the  same  direction.    The  Antler's  Gavotte is made up  entirely  of  familiaT  steps.   This is begun in the closed position.     March   two   measures,   two-step  four, take three glides to the left, finishing on the riglit foot, and waltz to  the close of the strain.   This i3 a new  combination   of   the  two  old  favorites,  t two-step and waltz, with the march step  for variety.  A Valuable Clue.

The Breakfast State of Mind.  Why Is breakfast "the most trying  meal of the day V" asks a writer In the  "Spectator." Why are people Irritable at breakfast and disinclined to  talk? Is lt possible, perhaps,^that there  exists a particular breakfast bacillus, \  Which thrives ln the presence ot bacon, coffee and buttered toast, and  which attacks everybody who comes  !nto the room where it lives, with a  varying effect upon different constitutions? Tor the breakfast state of mind  varies with different persons. There  are several distinct classes into which  the prevalent symptoms seem to fall.  People do not behave ln the,, same way  at breakfast aa at other meals, and  though at dinner their moods may be  practicably ^distinguishable ��������� the  states of mind of diners, that Is, do not  greatly vary���������at breakfast they conduct themselves as differently as possible. There are some people, for Instance, who are in offensively high  spirits early ln thc morning; in a state  of health, in short, which really Is  rightly described as rude. You can  hear them coming downstairs, no matter how far the stairs are away from  the dining-room, after slamming their  bed-room doors, with a resoffhdlng bang.  They open the dining-room door as It  they were pursued by a policeman, and  probably slap their male friends on the  back in an extremely provocative manner. During breakfast itself, while  consuming great quantities of all kinds  of food, they comment loudly on the  small appetites of others, and Insist  upon drawing the attention of those  who clearly wish to eat very little to  the presence of everything which Is  edible in the room. They appear to be  perfectly unconscious of the amount of  suffering which their splendidly healthy  habits Inflict .upon other persons of less  ; roibust constitutions, and are only aible  to suggest, In answer to possible complaints of a headache, that the complainant should resort to the particular dishes of which they have themselves eaten, and which they Invariably  describe as "quite excellent."  If the frame of mind of the rude and  boisterous breakjfaster Is one extreme,  the other extreme Is the mental state  .of the man who goes through the meal  In a condition of profound depression.  He. glances vaguely and uncompre-  hendlngly at a succession of dishes,  eventually taking the} smallest possible  amount of the" dish that is easiest to  , get on with. He does not,speak unless  ���������someone speaks to him, when he either  answers shortly and sadly, or; more often, with obviously forced merriment  ' and Inconsequent: laughter.; ' Or���������and  perhaps this variant of the breakfast  ��������� state of nilnd Is a more striking antithesis to the rudely boisterous���������his unbalanced mental attitude may be one  of suppressed fury. Men have Ibeen  known who every morning of their  lives" hold a kind of review of their acquaintances and friends, and in some  cases of those whom they employ. They  occupy the breakfast hour In passing,  so to speak, down the front and rear  ranks,.and in .trenchantly summing up  the habits and7 qualifications ot every  man reviewed, ending in each case  -with the verdict that "he Is an ass."  Probalbly he is nothing of the kind;  later in the day, indeed, he may become endowed with all the virtues, .but  from eight o'clock in the morning un til  ten he possesses for the furious break-  faster no characteristics except those  of the idiot, or, in exceptional cases,  of.the professional robber. Of course,  between the extremes of the rudely  boisterous and the profoundly depressed or trenchantly furious breakfast states - of mind there are .others  less definite. The curious case came  under the observation of the present  -writer of a man who, although in every respect temperate and healthy, did  not find himself alble to breakfast until  everyone else had finished. He was accustomed to get up at the same time as  everyone else,- but knowing that others  staying ln the same house were breakfasting ln the ordinary way ^own-  stairs, he would pace up and down his  room .waiting until a footman, specially instructed, brought In the news that  ���������breakfast was over. He would theii  enter the dining-room with an excel-'  lent appetite, -which, however, failed  him completely Bhould any fellow-  guest toy chance return'to the room.  But nothing, in any case, exhausted his  patience; if it happened that a late  riser remained at the. .breakfast-table  -half-an-hour^longer-Jthan the rest, he  accepted the situation with complete  equanimity; nor, upon any consideration, would he'consent to breakfast ln  his own* room, or anywhere except at a  deserted table.  There are other and more or lees,  comprehensible states of mind; as, for  Instance, the dislike which some' persons have of watching other people eat  porridge; the unhapplness which possesses some breakfasters; usually^jouT-  nalists, unless they are allowed to iwalte,  up and down the room : ln .'.silence;'', th*  extreme difficulty whlc*f!' some men find  in breakfasting In a room In which  there Is a looking-glass; and th*  strange mental condition -which,-at  whatever time they may 'happen t*  come down to the dining-room, Impel*  some persons to but one desire���������nam*-,  ly. to get the thing over as soon as possible. "Early or late, "winter or summer, work or holidays, two .damns and  a cup of coffee���������that's my breakfast,"  was the succinct comment of one who  Invariably began the day in a quit*  unnecessary hurry.

l, speaking out on some unreasoning
Impulse, had told Sintra Leigh of the
heart-shaped scar on John Bourke's
arm. No wonder she had shown emoj
"tion. I understood the meaning of it
now: for doubtless i-hnd given her as
great a shock of enlightenment as I
had given her twin-brother to-night.
How she had come Into communication
with Roger Cope and why she and
Walter Leigh were living in this house
I did not yet know. But I did know
that the woninn In black wns on fiiend-
ly terms with Roger; that she had seen
him since I 'had told my all-Important
piece of news; nnd that Ttoger had to-
���day gone off to some place unknown,
carrying with him a portmanteau.
With these things shaping strangely
together ln my mind, Walter Leigh's
words sent an ominous creeping chill,
through my nerves.
"I did rot know," he continued, slow*- ,
Iy, "that Ermyntrude was dead; there-
tore I did not'know that Roger Cope.
* had anything more than his title, and
���this house, which came to him long
ago on his cousin Vincent's most1 untimely death. But you say that Arrlsh Mell Court Is his���that everything
is his. Does that mean that Ermyntrude left him all that was hers in a
"No," I'said. ' "There was no* will.
���Roger was her solicitor, and he told
me that he had often advised <her to
make * a will, -hut she kept putting lt
off. If I had been her daughter, as I
believed, I should have expected the
dear old home nnd the money to be'
mine If I (had ever thought of such
things at all. But Roger undeceived
tne. And, rather than marry lilm, as
he asked me to do, I went away and-,
lived for a while with my own people."
Walter  Leigh   looked    at    me  more
Closely than he had done yet.   "So Rog-
��r Oope wished-to marry you, in spite.
it knowing that'you would have-nothing but yourself to give?" ,
"Tes, I suppose,"-I admitted,- reluct-
��ntljpii"tliat he must really have cared ���
���   tor me." ;
"That  is not hard to believe,"  said
Une  sick  man,  ln 'the  curious  hollow ���
voice'that seemed somehow ,to put him '
.,   wtslde the world of living human beings.   "You are no ordinary girl.   But
his head may have prompted the wish
as well as his heart.   I don't believe for
a moment that Ermyntrude died with- "
out a will.    If he was her solicitor he
may have made tlie will and destroyed
It.   Besides, She kept a diary, I know.
I knew it of old, "and she spoke -of It-
��n that last  night ln April  when we ���
were In town and I begged Slntra toi
fetch her because I was very 111 and,
longed that she should know e truth
about the past. The book .was pad-
Socked, and there was a. tiny key���that
' Is, If It was the same book Which I
Knew years ago." ���
��.   -   "Could lt have been* the key I found
Il     ln the% pocket of her tea-g*own?" I ex-
clalmea,. speaking- to myself, not him.
But he answered. . '
"Find the book and try the key," he
said. .  '" " \ *
1 "The book would have been in the octagon room, in tho���escritoire, where she
used so often to write," I murmured,
reflectively. "And, oh! the escritoire,
or one like It, is here, .in this house!
Perhaps Roger brought it back from
Arrlsh Mell Court." ' '**"
Even  as I  spoke I remembered  the'
night of the  storm, when I had gone'
to the octagon room, hearing and seeing certain  strange, things  which  my
superstitious fears had tried to explain
according to their^own.way.   Now.my
reason began to explain them differently. " What If Roger had come secretly
to  the  house  from  the .Inn - where' he '
was' staying in the village of Lull, and,"
surprised-by, me in an attempt i to .find
j'j   this  same'diary,  had'chosen  to'play'
the ghost?"
''If there was a will,"-Walter Leigh
was saying, "Ermyntrude would probably have mentioned making'it in her
diary. Roger Cope would have thought
of that, for he Is clever���hatefully clev-
er-r-or he could never have gained his'
present Influence over my sister. Per-
haps-there-was a-secret drawer-ln*-that-
eecrltoire of which you speak, and, not
being' able "to 'find "'it,"" he- may have
brought the thing here to ibe under his
own eye, lest something was hidden
which none but "he ought to find."
, "I shall try hard to find lt," I said.'
'"But you don't., like Roger. Cope any
better than I*" do. Have you known
him for a long time?"
"I never saw him until after the
nlght~when Ermyntrude was brought
to^my-bedside In London, by Slntra. I
know that he' existed, that was all. But
while I~was still very 111 ln the -lodging- ���
house ln town to which we had'eome on
our last return to England, Slntra told
me that "Sir" Jloger Cope.had 'called;
that he had been at great pains to And
us out. having heard ors guessed that
we had come back-from abroad. The
next piece of news was that he had ln-
ii*) vlted.us to. thc. old place, .which was
his since Vincent's death.' The offer
was represented to.'me as a disinterested one, and I must say that' I was
thankful for lt, as our life of late years
had been a sordid struggle with poverty. The punishment of my sin has heen
(n constant illness, terrible insomnia,
awful dreams-when I could sleep, sometimes a horror of approaching madness.
"For long I have been unable to work
at'my art, and'the little money Slntra
had saved for me had dwindled away.
I had found Vi certain relief in telling
Ermyntrude the truth, which I* would
have told her years ago had Slntra not
so bitterly opposed my wish. I did not
dream'"j_hat the knowledge of her boy's
fate had * killed 'her; though we had
passed through a.terrible scene; and
with my mind at last somewhat calmer than it had been" for many a year I
was thankful for the haven Roger Cope
offered fhe to die In. I* was grateful to
him while he was still a stranger. But
when I came to see the man my feeling' changed. Instinct told tne that
what he had done for Slntra and .ihe
was for his own advantage, somehow,
far'more, than for ours. And I have
been sure' since that we were brought
here to be kept out of the way.
("Now you have told me of Ermyntrude's.. death   and   his  Inheritance of
..Jr estates and fortune, lt is far cleai**��
er than before. He must have suspected, from the circumstances of her
death, that she might have come into
possession of some knowledge, withheld from her before. This he would
have at once associated with us. He
.would have guessed that we were ln
England���that we had seen ln the papers, perhaps, that she was ln London
(as was, really the case), and would
have conjectured that we had met.
Very possibly ho discovered our whereabouts,by Inserting an advertisement
ln the newspapers, which Slntra answered (though She would never tell
me how.it was that he found us out),
and, as he at once won her confidence
by proclaiming his enmity towards Ermyntrude, he, no doubt learnt from her
the secret kept so long���the'secret.that
concerned the boy's life. He, of course,
shared our ignorance as to what had
become of the boy; but lt .would be fatal to his interests if anyone outside
should learn that Sir Vincent Cope's
son and heir had not died after all. The
property could only remain his on sufferance, till the heir should be found.
It was for this reason that I said it
would be well If John Bourke should
hear of his rights before Roger Cope
knew the whole truth." ' '
"Tour sister .already knows," I faltered. "Roger sent her to take me
away from Mr. Bourke's house, where,
as I told you, he had let me stay with
old Mrs. Jennett. She tried to prejudice me against Mr Bourke, saying all
sorts of strange, superstitious sounding
things, which I suppose she made up ln
the hope'of frig!-tuning me so that I1
should never think of him any more.
Then I told her of the heart-shaped
scar, and she was startled and -astonished. Perhaps she has repeated
what I said to Roger since, and
���and he has gone to London?
He was. more ready to go away
and leave me, after he had taken
the trouble .to have me, fetched here,
than seemed quite naturtil, maybe���now
that, there's "a new light upon his actions. But what harm could Roger do?
For his own sake,-even if he were vile
enough, he would not dare imake'himself a-murderer? Oh! say, that you
think he wouldn't do that?"'
"Is it possible that you care for the
man," in spite of all?" exclaimed Walter
Leigh.       ���     ,,
"No, no!" I cried', Impulsively. '"Not

"I see," the Invalid thoughtfully said.
"If the other cares for you, there might
be a happy ending after all."
"Oh, he doesn't care," I protested.
"I'm: afraid���I mean I think that he
cares-for someone else, who Is. very
rich and very beautiful. But if I could
pay him back for his great" goodness to ,
me���if I could* show him that after all I

"You are right about Roger,* I think," .
Walter    Leigh  'said,^reflectively:   "ha

exclaimed.     "How   am  I  to  get   out?

story���and warn'-hirn of danger?"
��� The sick- man sighed. .-
.*��� "It is' my; fault,, that'the* door is
locked," he said. -"Sometimes my burden of sin has'been heavier, than my
tired brain-could bear. I have cried
out. half In delirium, that I would confess all to seme clergyman or some

"Besides, even then she would not let

harm, but she Is Roger Cope's friend,
and* she serves his interests���perhaps
she thinks that in the Mid they will be
mine as .well; at1 all events, she loses
no opportunities of telling'me'so. Every door in the house Is locked; or, at
least, all those on the lower floors with
windows from which I might try to escape. She and Roger have thought of
everything. I suppose they hope, at
worst, to tire me out with arguments
and persuasions, making 'me believe
that the only thing left for me Is marriage with. him. They could never do
that if they kept me here for ten years;
but I can't be.kept. I must go and
tell this story I have had from you.
But how���how?" '

a. clear head as well as a .stout heart,
there might be, a way." Walter Lei��h

���   For the Man I Loved.
"What is the thing that I might'do,*
If���I were brave enough?" I asked.
"Go, now, and look down out of the*
window," said the sick man.   '
I went back to the window where I
had hidden while Slntra Leigh .was In.
the room. ,It seemed a very long way
to the ground. "If that Is what you
mean, I could never do It," I cried,
shrinking back.-
"Few women would dare," returned
Walter Leigh. ,
"But It would" be Impossible���for anyone!"     .. *
"Not impossible with a rope, or w!U��
sheets and blankets tied together."
I walked to the window again, ard
peered fearfully down. My heart began to thump against my side, and I
grew giddy with the thought of making the attempt. For I did think of it
now. Slntra Leigh would not como
back to this room until morning; and
as I was supposed to be asleep In bed
downstairs, if* I could, only get away
safely and quietly, my flight need not
be discovered for many hours. If I
could only do it, I told myself, with
growing resolution, nothing could bo
better for me than escaping from the
invalid's room.
"I will be brave!" I said, suddenly.
"I am going to try."
"I thought you would," answered the
sick man. "In the big chest of drawers over there you will And more blankets, which have been discarded since
warm weather began. Give me the rug
that Is spread over the lounge and then
you can take' a sheet and the blanket
and quilt from thc bed also. I'll show
you how to knot them together so that
the heavier the weight hanging from
them the more secure they will be.
And you can fasten the end round one
of the legs of the dressing-table by the
window. It Is as heavy as it is old-
fashioned, and you may safely trust to
It,' if the knot is made In the right
He spoke so calmly, as If the ordeal
before me were such an ordinary thing
to carry through, that my courage began to come back. I obeyed his directions with returning self-confidence;
and hy following the Instruction he gave
me I made a sheet, three'blankets, a silk
quilt, and a pair of curtains Into a
long, well-knotted rope. By his advice,
too, I tried its length by dangling lt
out of the window and found that lt
touched the ground. Whon I had gone
���If all were well���the Invalid was -to
rise and drag the rope back through
the window. He would not have
strength enough to replace the curtains which,' by means of setting a
chair on the big dressing-table, I had
contrived to detach from their rings.
But at least no one would know of my
departure until Sintra Leigh should
pay her morning visit to her brother.
My hat was dowi.stairs in my own
room, but I was told where I could And
a traveling cap.belonging to the invalid, which I might wear without attracting much attention for eccentricity; and as I had no money to pay my
railway fare or other expenses he Insisted that I should borrow the small
sum in his purse. .When I hesitated at
this he reminded me that what he did
was not really fori n,e but for Ermyntrude's-son, against whom he had so
gieatly sinned.
"Good-bye, and Heaven help you,"
he said when I was ready at last
"Bring the boy to me if you can, to
make assurance doubly sure. I shall
try to live till then, that I may tell my
story and secure him his rights. The
diary, too���his mother's diary���it would
be good If you could find that."
For a moment or two I stood at tha
window afraid to begin. And it was still
worse���whon I had moved myself to
the,'effort and sat trembling and giddy
on the .window-sill���to let myself go.
But I said In my heart: "It Is for him,"
and the mist cleared from my eyes. ���
"-I could have .screamed as I swung
out on my manufactured rope, and a
horrid .tingling 'ran through my body,
trom the-crown of my head to the very
ends of my fingers and toes. I- had only
my hands to trust to, for-Walter Leigh
was very'weak, and able to give me no
help except advice. I tried not to
think of what lay below or what would
happen if Iilost my hold,-and slowly I
began to- let myself down, my arms
straining in their sockets. ' Whenever
I came to one of the great knots I had
made I rested for a moment, breathing
nard, and. looking up ai the lighted
window above to see how much
progress I had mad". If I had looked
lown instead I think my giddiness
would have .'overcome-me'and'I must
surely have fallen.       'v   \"'7r 1,...,^.^,
Never had moments seened so long;
but at last I was opposite the tops of
the laurel bushes that grew near the
house; then my feet touched the
ground. With that I gave a sob, and
letting go of the rope fell ln a huddled
heap on'the grass, where I lay quite
still and nerveless. I was not ln th��
least hurt, but I felt broken to pieces,
and my hands and feet prlngled all
over with'the sensation known as "going to sleep."   " ��� . '
A faint "Hist!" at" ths .window
whence I had come roused me at
length, and I tottered up, unable to
Btand, until I supported myself against
the house wall. But in a minute or two
I 'was myself again, sufficiently at least
to feel, that I could walk; and when I
had given back an answering whisper
and seen the rope drawn up I began to
_search^for .the_J_wide_avenue_^_which
would lead me* to the gates I remembered..
A late moon was Just rising, and after I had stumbled over a few flower-
beds-I'came Into the drive. Never be-
,fore had I been out alone in the night
and the country, but I was too thankful ' to * have * escaped from the house
-with sound limbs to think of being
afraid. *���        '        *,,      * ,* '
The "great gates were locked, but
there was a small gale for foot-passengers at the side,' and thlswas open. The
lodge was dark, - and apparently deserted, as lt had been before,-, so I
passed-freely, and drew a long breath
of relief when r found myself out'in
the open road.
I forced myself to recall that in driving In we had-first seen the gates on
the right, therefore I could form an
idea of the way to the railway station.
I was glad now that I had looked often
from the carriage window, for I remembered several landmarks which
made the long walk seem shorter,
buoying me up from time to time with
renewed hope.
At the station I had a bitter disappointment, for the place was dark and
deserted; but when I had hovered miserably about for half an hour, perhaps,
I saw in the brightening moonlight a
huge market 'cart coming down the
road. . i
, I- hailed It, careless of the surprise
which might be aroused by the appearance of, a young woman alone near the
railway station at such a time of night.
A man answered my call, peering curiously, down at me from his high seat.
Hs was going to Bournemouth, at
which place he would arrive about four
In* the morning. If I were anxious to
reach town as soon* as possible I could
certainly get an early train from there,
while at a small place like this I might
have to wait till much later. He would
give me a lift If I liked. I did like;
and presently, perched beside my new
friend. I was Jogging along the quiet
country road, with only the moon to
stare at me.
My patience was sorely tried by this
delay, which I had not been practical
enough to count upon.   But I consols^-
myseif with the thought that my traeffi.
were being* more'skilfuliy covered than
If I had gone direct to London by train;
and thnt as It was I should probably
arrive In town before the hour at which
my absence was likely to be discovered.
T counted sliii upon getting away by
flve; bul I hrd to'wait in Bournemouth
till neaily six, and It wns nine when
I leached Waterloo Station. Walter
Leigh's money got me a cab, and at
half-past nine, told by* distant Big Ben,
my dilver was stopping before tie well-
lemembered house in the quiet Westminster street.
I had been so borne along by the
rushing tide of excitement t t I had
not found time to picture the moment
of my meeting with John Bourke. My
mind had gone further than that, and
I had fancied myself telling him the
wonderful story of his true birth. But
now, as I rang the door-bell, my heart
failed me. Of what ingratitude and
.selfishness mu-.t I not seem g Ity after
the^Ietter I h_.*4 h,.rt and my sudden disappearance!
If I had come back on an errand of
my own I think that I should have
turned and run away.
However, in the matter which had
brought me I was a thing of no Importance ��� only a voice with which
great news should bo told.

John Kcndrick Bungs says that one
evening he found' himself on the rear
platform of a crowded New York eai

to be thc largest man on the force. This
policeman, according to his own statement, was six leet eight inches in height,

Bangs fell into a pleasant conversation
with the giant, in the course of which
lie complimented him on his great size,

about William Black. At a banquet of

line of business he was in. On his meek-
lys replying that he wrote novels, they
expressed their surprise and pleasure at
meeting a person of his class. Thc first
gentleman said, "I like to. meet littery
people. I buy books. I've got a library
of six hundred volumes all bound in full
calf. I've got all the works of Thacker
ay'and Dickenson, and if you'll tell mc
the names of yours I'll buy them too

Do Plants Reason ?*
O plaivls think and reason? Mr. _
Francis Darwin, the distinguished son of a world-famous*
father, would almost make us believe
they do by the lecture he delivered
recently in connection with the.
British "Association meeting at Glasgow. Through a long course of experiments and observations, conducted on.

Instead of pursuing theories, Mr. Darwin Is able to dhow, by what seems
conclusive proof, that plants control
to a certain extent their own growth.
They adapt -themselves to the influence
of gravity by means analogous to the
Instinctive actions ot animals. Man
does not ivallc by a reasoned theory of
the adaptation of Ms limbs to thc operation of gravity. He walk*! by instinct,
and keeps himself from falling by Instinctive motions of his iimbs, tutored
by organs of sensation. Plants, says
Mr. Darwin, grow upwards by similar
interaction of organs of sensation and
motion. Moreover, each plant Interprets correctly the conditions In which
it can best grow and thrive. If you
turn the tip of a stem downwards, the
plant will bend tt upwards, liave we

that the change might help him to recover from the bullet wounds inflicted

from   the   cottage,   reached   his   ears,,
vwhat are they ringing that bell for?**
"That?"  said   Mrs.  Garfield,   who  had:.,
been waiting for the surprise���"that's .;

first came down.   They're all going to

on her knees, she said, "and I'm going

Friday. October 17, 1902.  A DUTY AND A PLEASURE  It is the duty, and it should  he  the  , ilea sure, of every good.Conservative  to encourage the magnificent shindy  which has broken out in  the Liberal I  camp, and to egg on  the combatants.  For sis years  the  Liberal party has  governed Canada under a mobL extraordinary   compromise     belween   ' its  principle*; and  its practice upon  the  tariff    question.    So   long    as    that  compromise    represented     u     fairly  coherent aiul continuous turiif policy,  Canada   was   satisfied  with tbe government, being more concerned  with  ils practice  than its principles.   The  Conservative parly  in  lhe  meantime  ���������was     purged    and   reorganized.    Its  position on the tariff  was laid down  clearly and   suceintly  in  parliament,  and has since been ably and  powerfully expounded upon   the platform.  ^TjuL to  all  its work   there  was this  element  of hopelessness  added   that  the people were inclined to say that it  did not matter what tbe Conservative  party said, however right it might be.  so long   as   the Liberal Government  carried out* practically the same policy.  All the time,   however,   Canada   was  growing and expanding.   The national  policy not being a dead category of  protective duties, but a vital principle  applicable to new needs and opportunities as they arose, could not forever be  dealt with in a   spirit  of ~ mechanical  compromise,    when   new   needs   and  opportunities were arising every day.  There lias been all through tlie country  a growing undercurrent of dissatisfaction   with   the  tariff  policy   of    the  government.    Mr. J. Israel Tarte 'was  the man in tbe government ranks   to  discover tbis. and fairly and sijuarely  " Mr. Tarte is evidently determined,  il' be can, lo smash the Liberal party  before he goes over to take the lead of  tbe Conservatives, Tliere poobably  never was since ministerial responsibility and ministerial solidarity be'  eaini! principles of the British  constitution such a case, of open  treason by a minister against a  ministry as that of which Mr. Tarte is  just now guilty. Either he is incap-  ahle of conceiving the principles of  the constitution or he is a wilful  traitor to it. He has taken despicable  advantage of the absence of his chief  to map oul, on the most central  question'of. politics,**a policy directly  opposite of that maintained' hy the  ministry, and to go about the country  pi'ocla/niing it and denouncing liLs  ministers who do not fall in with it in  thc most contemptuous terms.

Even if  tbe  country   thought    otherwise,   as  many a country does think differently  from its wiser men, the country would  certainly have more respect for those  -men  who  had   consistently, followed  the opposite view than for men  who  who only adopted it to keep themselve  in power.   Mr. Tarte does not expect  them to do anything of the kind.     He  only wants to injiue them as much as  possible before he deserts them and  joins   their adversaries.   How  much  Mr. Tarte cares for the good of the  country is shown by his denouncing  Mr, Fisher as  a prohibitionist,    Mv.  Tarte himself was the chief orator at a  recent liquor men's gathering, and no  doubt counts on  the   support  of the  liquor    interests,   along   with   every  other selfish interest which has money  to spend in his scheme to  ride rough  shod all over Canada."  It is extremely improbable that Mr.  Tarte will ever lead the Conservative  p.irty; ib is not even necessary that he  should join it, and we do not know  that Conservatives care a rap of their  fingers whether he does or not. He  has, however,* raised a real and definite  political issue towards which the  Liberal party takes one point of view  and the Conservative party nrother,  and in regard to which the overwhelming sentiment of the country is  in agreement with the view taken by  the Conservative party.��������� Victoria  Colonist.

Suddenly  and  ���������with   dramatic   vigor,  he   raised the  banner   of  " Protection  to  Canadian  Industry     and   Improved   Means   of  Transportation*'   within the walls of  the   Liberal   fortress.    Tlie   besiegers  very naturally raised a shout of joy.  But * from   the  Conservative  partizan  point of view there wa*? danger lurking  in  this   action, of Mr.  Tarte's whicli  was not* immediately .appreciated. Tin:  sryhe raised  was so 'obviously what  Canada hnsiicen waiting to hear, and  is ready to welcome from any source,  whether Liberal or ('otifervati.'rc,  that  if   tlie  I.ilieral  party had   only  kept  fjuiet and w-aited till the.rank' and  file  had got  accustomed   to  tbe  voice  of  '.Tarte a.-,  proclaiming  it-,  doctrine,   it  would have swept the. country  once  more, and  left merely a'remnant of  Con.-ervativcs   lamenting   that    once  more their thunder bad  been  stolen.  Fortunately     for    the   Conservative  party, und without  prejudice to the  interests.of'the'Country,' there arose  from the Liberal press from  Halifax  to Victoria, a howl Of repudiation  of  Mr. Tarte, from whicli it will  now  be  impossible   for-'the'-liberal party  to  resile, and which sounded the doom of  ��������� the Liberal government just as soon as  the people of Canada receive an opportunity of recording their verdict.   The  following   article,     taken   from     tlie  Montreal   Witness,  puts  the   matter  very   ably   and   yery   clearly.    It   is  forcible and strong in its terms, but it  says nothing which has not been  said  in milder language by  every  Liberal  organ:  Mr. Bordeiris eonsistent.---=-  "Wlien Mr. B. L.

Their curiosity has been gratified  and  Mr.   Borden   and   his supporters  come   out   of   the   ordeal   models   of  consistency.    Thev have preached the  doctrine of" adequate protection " for  tlie niaiiiitactiirer, the artizan and the  farmer, in British Columbia7 and  the  Territories   alike.       Thuy   were   not  armed with a Kree Trade platform for  those who relish that policy,  but. they  told the farmer about the hest features  of the National Policy, and by forceful  ai jruments     convinced    many     that  under Conservative rule tbe Agriculturist's interests will be  safe guarded.  'They said no more nor less  than  has  lieen said by the  grunt, leaders  of  the  Conservative Party since 18"8.     They  had nothing new to offer, except  that  they     exemplified     the     progressive  features of that attitude toward  trade  questions   which   has produced   such  gratifying  results in   Canada during  tbe past25 years.     Conservatives can  refer with pride to the speeches of their  leaders, which have been in support of  the same principles whether delivered  on the Atlantic or the Pacific.    Compared with the Free Trade High Tariff  quarrels of the Liberal cabinet,  their  camp   followers    and   their    leading  journals,   the pronouncements of the  opposition   representative, are    welcome assurances to Canadians, that a  better and brighter day is in store for  us.   That the resumption of power by  the   Conservative  party ! is  not    far  distant is the generally accepted  and  growing   belief  of   those    who    are  watching the political battle and know  whereof they speak.

Israel Tiirtc, whti lins luwi  his coat oil' for the pnial. couple ol  months, has now rolled up his sleeve.**  ar.d is dealing out -ilt'dgi.' hammei  blows right and left at his opponent*,  of FieeTrado proclivities. Instead of  relenting, Mr. Tnrte is growing niore  vigorous each day, and is commanding  tho allegiance of Premier Ross of  Ontario, Senator McMullin and other  erstwhile followers of Coliden. He is  provingthccluim that the Conservative  policy of "Ctinncii for Canadians'' ' is  the only one that will be tolerated on  this side nf thc line, ai.d ih the columns  of his paper, Lit Patrie, ho scores his  lnaligHers in unmeasured terms.  Every issue gives to the world in  general, and one of Air. Tarte's con*  freres in particular, a sharp lecture as  to what should lie done to conserve  our industrial welfare. As the heart  to heart talks are nut to the Jilting of  those at whom they nre diiocted, nnd  bitter retorts arc hurled back at the  unlucky head of the Minister of Public  "Works, the ministerial breach it.  widening and the difficulties of the  Liberal Party are multiplying.  At the present time the thoughts of  Free Trade ministers turn towards  Europe and Laurier, and the hasty  action of the premier in winding up  his affairs on the other side is without  doubt tlie result of an urgent appeal  for his return to the scene of trouble.  Just what Sir Wilfrid will be able to  . accomplish time alone can . decide.  Liberals vow that Mr. Tarte has  taken advantage of his leader's  'absence to open a campaign whicli has,  wrought no end of evil to\their party  cause, and they are denouncing the  " Master of the Administration," in  the press and in private, 'as a dangerous political auarchist. Mr. Tarte's  only crime, however, .seems to be that  he will no longer consent to remain on  the tence while the country is looking  for some evidence of advancement on  the part of the government, and in  getting down on one side'of it he has  ' forced his colleagues to drop off . on  the other.  That Liberals haverreason   to" fear  the ill-effects of Mr.   Tarte's   leap   is  beyond  dispute.     No    matter  . how  negotiations  for  a    settlement    are  ��������� conducted, nothing.that can  be"done  'will restore confidence in the ability "of  the Laurier government to deal with  the fiscal policy of the country in a  fitting manner. A government to be  effective must at''* least be united in  the open. In icomicil and caucus,  individual members may air their  individual opinions, but if the country  is* to havfev confidence in their ability  -to discharge their, duties in a proper  spirit,     ultimate    unanimity   is    an  essential clement.    In a country ,like  - -     . . .  , Canada we cannot endure Free Trade  Protection rule*. Industry can survive  just so much of that form of government and no more, and Mr. Tarte  * realizes that six years of hypocrisy in  dealing with the tariff is' ample.  Under Liberal rule 'imports from the  United^ States have grown from  $61,649,041 in- 1897'to' $120,800,056"in  1902r_Our market's are -floodecllfncl  ou'- manufacturers and their employers  are being robbed of a home market to  which they have 'an, inherent right.  - ,"J(r. Tarte "has pronounced for .a dis-  ' continuance-of,.this evil. ' He'must  survive and carry with him  lhe .sup-  " port of associates or must let ire.  There can be nojhalf measure" adopted  to tide over the difficulty. That would  mean even greater mistrust in Can-'  ada's'fulure. So long as the-government is unsettled in its -program, sp  long will business suffer. 'How ia the  crisis to be overcome ?    It really looks  /as if the days of the government are  " numbered, /  NOTICE  Of  Sheriff's Seizure and Sale.

A Four Leaveu Ciover.
I WAS   hard   nt   work   drawing   a
bird,    which    might   eventually
draw a cheque,"whe*n tlie doorbell
sounded.   I didn't want to be Interrupted,   for  my   editor,   as  a
few  editors  are,  was a soulless
brute   where    promptttudo    was   concerned,   and   my  drawing   hod   to   ba
In a moment the servant brou_5bt ln
a card. It was the proper size and all
that, and the name upon lt was "Mr.
Edward Ross."
Now, there are peculiarities about
cards, and somehow this one rather
Impressed mc. I knew no one of that
ntsne, yet the n>- it, white thing was
unmistakable: so, laying down my
"brush, 1 sought the reception-room,
A big-. trlm-tooklng young fellow
faced me, a wonderfully musical volco
bade me good-morning with a certain
���bht-tTT smoothness which wns very
ploaslni?. and n pair of particularly
keen eyes took me In from head to foot,
th..-n apparently fixed themselves upon
uj left oar.
"I'm afraid you are busy?" he ro-
ui&rked, ns his eyes shitted from my
At that Instant I remembered a second brush, for the moment forgotten
in Up usual nlace.
' "Not too busy for business," I replied, at the .same time saying Inwardly, "You've got a cjulck eye and wit."
"Good���It's business." he commented.
"The fact la, a friend of mine wantn a
atory of the Speedway according to
���this memo. He asked me to get It; I
made a few enquiries; Mr.   advised seeing you." As he concluded he
banded rne -the slip of paper, upon
���which was scribbled, "Conception,
Drime movers, construction, cost, prominent patrons, value to public, unde-
���lrable features, If any; interesting as
possible; not to exceed five thousand
"That's all easy enough, If the price
be right,"  I said.
"I am at liberty to offer you t���,
providing the story reaches him by the
fifteenth," he continued.
, There was ample time, so I closed
With the offer, and the business end of
the Interview was reached.
"How far Is this Speedway fromv
here7 I've never seen it," he said, as'
he prepared to leave.
"Only a few blocks," I replied;,then,
larged by a sudden impulse, I added:
"If you don't mind waiting twenty
minutes In-my shop while I finish a
small matter, I'll take you up there."
"Good," he replied. ' "I shall be only
too happy.- if you are sure I'm not too
much troubla."
"Tbira way,", t replied. "Smoke up and
talk aa .much Ua you want to���doesn't
bother me In the least."
His eyes lighted with pleasure as
they fell upon the almost completed
rtca-wlng, and Ills remarks presently
-Siro-ved that he knew the bird well. In
' -e few moments I was busy with finishing touches; and, while he said little,
his keen eyes noted every move with
Absorbed Interest. After a bit I laid
aside brushes, picked up the glass,
verified the work and rose.
"Take a look through -the glass,"  I
aald.   "It'll show you what the result
yrlll be." *    ��� ' * '
H-e looked long and smiled approval.
"It's   wonderful,"   he    said,     "what
knowledge and skill can do.   That bird
Is all right.   I can't do'such things, but
I hs.ve  a  rare  good  eye.    That  little
drawing carries me   back   to   a   place
far away,   where  that bird  made  his
home in  a certain tree.    I know him
���well and���would���would   you   sell me
that?    I mean  after  you are  through
' .With it," he hastily added.
.     '*""Ko,   but  I'll give  it to  you    three
���weeks hence.   I can't sell it twice, you
know." t retorted, laughing. .
"I'll take you at your word, and I'll
set hunk," he retorted, meaningly.
In. a few moments the drawing was
reaily for mailing, and we-started.
Thi.- drst mail-box trapped the bird;
then we swung away for our destination. From the bridge we looked down
upon athletic field and ball-grounds,
and here my companion's personal
-knot-ledge o�� Upper Manhattan ended.
Onci upon the Speedway he became as
anin ated as an eager boy, but the
��hrer>-d comments he made upon every
important feature proved htm to be
rarely well Informed concerning the
cost, of and work and the requirements
���o.*-a-fast.-��a.fs-CQU**-?e.- Before we had
passed beneath the mighty arches"
���which eloquently d-.-clare man's mastery over natural obstacles, he had me
���wondering, for tho.-se keen eyes of his
saw everything ami his crisp remarks
proved that he had > read much and
toad s. trjnderful memory.
TJ&ase who have not seen the Speed-
-way cat. have no conception of Its
beauty. Upon the one hand the broad
-xra'.er. yet stirring with the pulse of
the distant sea; ��� vond that, noble
bli:n rolll-ig away in tremjr.dous, halted
bUS-iWs of green; otside you the low
atone wall, with its guarding metal
rail; ihen the broad-fiagged walk; then
ths Wi y Itself, broad and ample and
-carefully brushed as smooth as a yellow carpet. Across lt, another broad
v.-a.lk. and towering far above It, tremendous cllfTs of roughest rock, with
grand trees clinging where they may
��-wl brush and creepers draping with
lovely screen all traces of man'3 wondrous effort. Such Is the magic road-
-w��y irtilcli the wizard money conjured
���from among rock-masses flung by
���warring forces In myrtle days ot old.
S>gends of giants* hour and crafty-
elves cling like lichens to these rocks,
but now. at their bases, curves a mod-
�����m race-course, printed by the flying
-feet of the swiftest ligiit-harness
liorscj the .world contains.
As we strolled along a beautiful
brown colt passed at top speed, h!3
" salt the perfection of smooth trotting,
the dainty pneumatic seeming hardly
te touch the ground. Soon he came
Jogging back, full of fire and eager for
- -another burst. I knew the driver, and
In response to my query of "Anything
doing to-day?" he replied, "Sure���the,
���natch���start In 'bout an hour."
Then I remembered that a couple of
���rival gentlemen drivers had matched
���their favorite fliers weeks before, and
that this was the day of the race.
^���UT&herniore. I was aware that big
money had been wagered and that a
ollntlng race was expected. The coming contest explalred the deserted ap-
;i._ar*uice of the F_/;edway���beyond a
doubt a crowd of keen horsemen was
gathered about th* headquarters at the
farther end of the course.
I explained the fl.uatic.n to Ross, and
suggested our waiting where we were
Cor a while, as we were near what
would be the finish.
"Know anything about, them?" ha
queried, while his shrewd eyes twinkled
with Interest.
"Yes," I replied; "one's the best
horse, but its owner's iip, and t'other
. do -;'s got the best mechanic behind
"SVhnt's the difference' between tho
"And between drivers?"
"Milesl" ...!
"Sure of that?"
"Absolutely certain!"
"How will the betting be?"
"Probably two to one on thc nag
that's going to lose. He's a fast, showy
liorBe, his driver Is a great bluffer, and
the crowd will surely back the combination. But I know something of thc
other pair, nnd neither horso nor man
makes mistakes. The mini Is an amateur, but he's lit for professional compnny���a wise, cool, absolutely straight
fellow, who Is satisfied with a head
when a head will do llio trick."
"Looks like something of a cinch,
"Very llko it. Thc match was made
apparently nn the outcome of a chance-
raised nrgiiinent, ��� 1 know both parties were looking for It for weeks.
Tho man who Is {joins to lose lt Imagines that ho talked thc other into making lt.   Do you savey?"
.Ross smiled, then remarked that ho
wouldn't mind having a small bet on
the result, and suggested thnt we move
along and find out how things were.
As we turned to go, he started slightly,
then glanced at mo.
"I see It, two���pick lt up," I remarked,
Before us, on the strip of sod and almost, hidden, lay a small silver bracelet, a cheap affair, to which were attached a few plated bangles. As Ross
picked lt up he uttered a sharp cry.
"Well���of all the curious things!" he
almost shouted, as he handed me the
trinket.   "What do you think of that?"
Attached among the bangles was, a
locket-llke affair���two small crystals
held together by a circular band of
gold with a. little ring to hang it by,
and between the crystals was tightly-
pressed a tiny four-leaved clover.
, "Neat bit of work," I commented, as
I closely examined it; "and It's a genuine clover, too," I concluded, as 1
handed lt back. /
"Hurry up,", he exclaimed, as he
thrust the bracelet Into his pocket.
"I'll lay some long green on that driver
you fancy. How're you fixed?" he
continued, -as we bustled along.
"Oh! I'll chance a ten-spot on It for
luck," I said through my laughter, for
Ross was visibly keen to follow his
"Ten-spot be d���d! I'll make it flve
���hundred if these guys s.re game!" he
retorted with energy. "Why, It's like
finding the good stuff. I only hope
they've got their bundles with them!"
"It's good betting they have.   These
mon  always  go  heeled,   and  some  of *

"Lead mo to them. I'm a cooking-
range!" he gurgled gleefully, and presently we neared the crowd.
Ross's manner at. once changed.
Calmly Indifferent, he moved among
the little knots of whispering horsemen, until he had bored his way Into
the center of a noisier crowd, where
betting talk was free.
"General���one hundred even?" queried a sweaty, red-faced fellow, but
the gray-haired Southerner addressed
smiled and shook his head. "One hundred to seventy-five! Come, General,
time's short," continued the man, but
the offer was declined. "Does anybody
care for It? Open to anybody! Come,
For a moment there was no response,
then Ross remarked, "I'd like a bit or
that." -
"How much? Money talks!" said thi*
red-faced man.
With the celerity of the turf they got
together, and the wads they produced
were fat to bursting.' After a brief
conference the red-faced man planked
down $500 at the odds, Ross counted
out the needful, the house took charge
o�� It, and the red-faced man remarked:
"Just had $500 to play with, Might as
well have it all in a lump. Saves
trouble collecting!"
Ross smiled a four-leaved sort of
smile;  then we worked our way out.
"Don't know him,   but  he's  a  good
'un!"  I  heard  a  well-known  sporting
man remark as Ross reached the door.

dwelt upon, for it was the old, old~stdi*y~
of the mechanic versus the amateur.
After losing the first heat by an open
length, our horse, or rather our driver,
took command and won out. There
was the usual hot discussion, the usual
kick from losers, and finally a challenge from the loser for another race
for bigger money, professional drivers.
This the owner of our horse declined.
"A long-headed chap, that fellow,"
remarked Ross, as we tramped homeward. "You had him sized up all
right. Now we'll have a bite and settle."
We turned at length Into a cafe,
where over the cigars we discussed the
fortune of the duy and the curious finding of the bracelet.
"Wonder if It would be any harm to'
put that charm on my chain?" queried
Ross, as he fingered it lovingly. "I
don't want the othf-r truck, but the little clover must stop with me. I believe
In It. To (Ind one Is liifky; hut to find
one all ready mounte 1 like this Is something unheard of, and I'll .see the
oracle's worked full time," he added
with a grin.
"With a knife he tinkered at the tiny
ring until the clover was detached;
then he fastened It to his chain, and
while we sat his fingers kept playing
with lt.
When the check was brought, he settled for everything; then divided his
winnings In'"halt and pushed one wad
over to me.
"What's   this?"   I   gasped.
"Your whack!" he remarked, crisply.
"But���but���" I remonstrated.   "What
the  devil  have I to  do  with  it?    It's
your money���r won't have It!"
"Yes, you will, too!" he retorted.
"We were In on the deal. You saw
the trinket betore I did. It won for
us. I've had a right pleasant time, and
I insist!"
"But I won't stand for lt!"
For   a  moment   his   eyes   met   mine
with a peculiar, hard expression; then
they   softened   to   a   mirthful   twinkle,
and he said:
"Oh! very well! If you absolutely
decline to take whit's yours, I can't
help It!" With which he thrust, the
twin rolls into his pocket. "Now st{-��-.

For a moment she stood petrified with
amazement, then she sped uway as
fast as her wretched little shanks could
carry her. No doubt she told her
friends "de swell guys" gave lt to her
and no doubt her friends guessed she'd
"pinched" It, or, if. swell guys actually
had given It -to her, that they were
very, very drunk at the time.
. By the foot of the stairs we chatted
for a few moments, then up he went,
two steps at a time, for tho rumble of
an approaching train was plainly audible. j\s I 'turned away he whistled
sharply, and, loaning ovor, shook his
clover charm. I laughed and waved
my hand.
"So long!" ho cried. "Best not put
your left hand hi your coat pocket,"
and he vanished as the croaking train
came, to a standstill.
Of course my hand at onco went Into
my poclcot and closed on a roll of bill.**.

note,  which  read:   "I .have  an. empty

at once mailed the drawing to the address. Next day came an envelope,
which contained a brand-new "twenty"
and a note, which read: "Made this
myself with a pen���try to pass it."
He'd made the note with a pen all
right, but the "twenty" was genuine.
I wondered, for these things seldom
A couple of weeks later came a photograph of the clover-charm, and on
the back was scribbled: "It's a wonder
���nothing but 'fours'���and all winners."
I whistled���for mine eyes began to
see things, and that evening I sought
for a certain Puritanical-looking party,
who might have passed for a Presbyterian divine, 'but who never passed
for anything the other parties might
say in red, white and blue speech. I

there was nothing doing. He looked
very depressed, but greeted me pleasantly enough.

strangely hollow voice he asked:
"Haven't you seen,to-night's paper?"
I shook my head.
"Read it," he said, as he drew a
copy from his pocket.
Great headlines told it all. A party of
gamblers had gotten Into a row in a
saloon, and after the smoke had cleared
away, a few were on the floor, some
wounded, one dead. The dead man's
name was Walter Cozade, alias Rosa,
alias "Four-leaved Eddy." There waa
the usual sensational story.   '
I looked at the Daacon, and remarked
that I had met Ross.
��� "Then you met one- of God's own
gentlemen!" he exclaimed. "Eddie was
the soul ot honor, a college man and a
perfect gentleman.* He always wore a
four-leaved clover In a charm on his
chain. Last night he was a big winner���lie claimed he'dalways been lucky

���VKRYONE is familiar with General Sherman's famous definition of wnr. The great Italian
actress, Eloanora Duse, now

to stage lite. She says 11 Is
"hnll���downright hell."
Duse has confessed to an Interviewer
that she Is "tired ot the theater, but not
of art, tired of tho theatrical part of
stage life, tired of the necessary cooperation of artists, managers, scene-
shifters  and  lamp-lighters."
"Yes," she continued, "T nm tired of

"I mean to enliven the lecture platform nnd broaden Its scope by retaining some of the stage's features. My

"After that I will endeavor to realize
this dream of making the world acquainted with tho grent masterpieces
of literature without detracting their
attention by undue scenic effects and
tho awkwardness or stupidity of actors
playing Incidental parts.
"One or two.Indies or gentlemen will

look their parts and give me the cue*.
As for myself, I couldn't think ot assuming several roles as some do at
dramatic recitals.
"I needn't repeat," sho continued,
"that I leave the stage without regret,
yet at the same time. I am almost
forced to do something ot the kind. I
can't be for ever playing Dumas and
Sardou, Ibsen and Sudermann. No one

and those that are written might as
well remain unacted.
"I tell you la Duse Is- threatened hy
literary famine. Shall I wait until the
public tires of my repertoire? Besides,
I must rid myself of the slavery of
stage life.* That's no life at all. I assure you lt is hell, downright hell."
Curious Whims.
Eccentricity Is often nothing but the
exaggeration of Individuality, as with
a scholar of* some distinction who' died
towards the end of the last century.
His peculiarity expressed itself ln the
way In which he tried to carry his
scholarship, or the symbolism of it, into the grave. By the terms of his will
he left six thousand guineas to his
sister on condition that his funeral
was carr.Ied out on curiously-prescribed
Hne3. His coflln was painted green,
and was followed by only six gentlemen���no relatives being Invited���who
were to receive ten guineas each provided they did not dress in black. ' The
body, was fully dressed. Under the
head was placed a copy of Horace, and
at the feet Bentley's Milton. In one
hand was - a ��� pocket edition of
Horace, and in the other a small
Greek .Testament; and another copy
of Horace was laid underneath.
The hired mourners- sang over the
closed grave the last stanza of
the twentieth ode of the second book
of Horace; and .subsequently, after a
generous supper, another ode was
sung. "Which done," ran the final Injunction of the will, "I would have
them take a cheerful glass, and think
no more of me." A French historian
had a whimsical fancy for reading and
writing by candlelight. At-'full noonday, in the brightest summer .weather,
he would have his candle by his side,
and he would carry it in'his hand when
showing his visitors to the door. .

N Interesting discussion as to the
public morals of Frenchmen and
Americans" has recently been
started by Jules Cambon, the
French ambassador to the United
States, who made a trip home not long
ago, and was so much Impressed by
what he saw ln the Paris streets, during the summer season, that he felt
constrained to make an earnest protest against what seemed to him bad
tendencies. He complained of the
marited Increase ln tho absinthe habit,
and of the growing quantity of Indecent pictures and cartoons to be seen
in tho public streets. Senator Beren-
ger, another prominent Frenchman,
who Is at thc hcnd of the Soolcty for
tho Proven Hon of License In the
Streets, promptly admitted the -Justice
of Rr. Cniiibon'H censure, and said that
the police have of lato put hardly any
restrictions upon the exposure, In tho
central purls of Paris, ot engravings
nnd curds which offend decency. Ho
declared that this evil Is nlwnys at Its ,
worst during the summer months, nnd
that its iiim.'iiuil prevalence at this
season Is because lt "springs up especially to moot the average foreigner's
conception of. tho guy capital." Thousands of foreigners-go to Paris every
year for a short vacation, he adds
naively, "Intent on having a good time,
nnd declaring their Intention so loudly
that the city takes on a particular hue
for thoir benefit."' This view has been
emphatically sustained by the pastor
of a French Protestant church in Paris,
who asserts that Anglo-Saxon visitors
are the foreigners most to blame ln
this matter, nnd Americans' the worst
offenders of nil. He contends that the
keepers of kiosks where quantities' of
"lurid photographs" are sold told him
that "Americans" are thei-r hest. customers, purchasing handfuls of vicious
papers and cards, which they distribute widely In their own country..
According to the Now York "Evening
Post," striking testimony to the truth
of all this h.is just been furnished by
a member ot tho United States Congress. Representative Glllott of the
Springfield (Mass.) district,, a man of
high standing and proved Independence, has been traveling for jonic
weeks, with Speaker Henderson of
Iowa, In England and on the Continent. In a recent letter he remarked
that the shops, the hotels, and, above
all, the class of amusements which we1
call "Frenchy," and which "Americans" flock to Paris to see, seemed to
him "artificial and made to order to
meet the taste of American visitors."
He- frankly admitted that "it's7 no credit to us what they think our taste Is,"
and! bluntly declared that he had been
"thoroughly disgusted to see not only
American men, but "ladles, too, trying
to. be amused hy sights which they
would think both stupid and' low at
home." He added that it seemed to
him: as though "quite a proportion of
the-Parisians were engaged In exhibiting as their natural life and recreations a pretense. of high spirits and
risky abandon which^was all affected,
a constant bore to' 'the participants,
and only interesting and endurable to
strangers so long as they are deceived
into believing it is the custom of thf*
country." There is thus virtual agreement on the part of the French legislator, the United States congressman,
ahd the* French !clergyman that foreign
visitors, and particularly' "American"
tourists, are givingParis a worse reputation than it deserves���in fact,
making the city worse in' the summer
months of their presence than it is during the* rest of the year. The clergyman quoted clears the resident American colony of blame, pronouncing lt
exemplary, but he thinks it "impossible
to deny that visiting Yankees do Paris
far more harm than Paris does them."

There is no moro pathetic sight than  Uhrist, the Master, shedding tears of  Borrow over the ill-fated Cily of Jerusalem. As Ho came in from Beth.iny  that bright Sunday morning nnd descended the slope of Mount Olivet lie  eaw the beautiful city, with its temple  and marble palaces glittering in the  morning Bun.  With His divine mind He remembered  ������U that Ho had done through a thou-  ���������and years and more for His chosen  people, how He hnd segregated them  apart Irom the rest of the world, how  Be had f ollo-sred after them in thoir  wanderings, had called them back within paths of rectitude and had watched  ever them-with the fondest care, so  that He oould say, "What more is there  that I oould have done?" And still,  after lt all they were about to reject  Him and condemn Hiin to an Ignominious death. The thought of it all overpowered His human feelings, and Uo sat  down by the roadside nnd a flood of  tears filled His eyes and a choking sob  constrained His voice and an oppressive  sorrow filled His heart.  The Oity of Jerusalem is a type of  the human soul. Beautiful beyond compare b the soul." "Thou art all. fair and  I ���������will fix mine eyes on thee." ��������� It has  been the object of solicitous care in the  divine mind from aU eternity. Thc  wealth of divine grace has been .lavished on it. The providence of God has  Watched over it in all its wanderings',  In the paths of iniquity .as well as In  yiitue, and no desire ia deeper in the  divine heart- than that it shall enjoy  eternal beatitude. -  In pagan times there was no account  taken of human souls. Most men were  but animals,,with few, if any, rights,  and were .treated as^such. Ancient history is very largely a catalogue of  cruelties. Smenman, the librarian of  Rameses, asks, ' "What is .the life, of  a peasant?" and he compares him to  the locust, that may he killed by the  thousands. The Assyrian monarch wrote  on ��������� the stones of Nineveh:���������"I  took as prisoners men, young and old.  Of some I cut the hands and feet; others I mutilated. Of young men's ears  "I made a heap and of old men's skulls  a. tower; children I burned- in the  flame." Paganism set no value on human life, because it did not recognize  the worth _of the human soul, and it  ���������was not until the Christian religion proclaimed the divine creation and the su-  fiernatural redemption of man that the  remendous .value of human life was re-  eognlzed and the marvellous worth, of  the individual soul as such was affirmed.  The central .teaching of Christianity  Is that the human1 soul is of infinite  value. It makes no difference whether  it be the' soul of tho magnificent Leo  or that" of the most despised-slave; it  Is of infinite value nnd its ruin and  eternal loss draw tears of sorrow from  the God who came from heaven to redeem ~lt."   '   "      '"        **���������    ' ���������' "  '  The human soul, that wliich each of  ns possesses and which makes u������ what  we are, is, first of all, the handiwork of  God. It is created by an Architect of  Infinite wisdom whose artistic resource-,  are boundless. There were no limitations placed to His ability ln, forming  so beautiful a thing, and He -utilized  the wealth of -His power"in fashioning'  it. .He took no earthly model 'to form  it by, but He*, made it * unto His'own  imago nnd likeness���������a little less" than  the angtfVs, crowning it with honor and  glory. The Saored Word speaks of its  creation as the breathing out of the being of God. The body of man was form-  ���������"""ed'ffo'in^the'slimc'of-thc-earthrbiit-God***  breathed into.its face the breath' of life,  and man became a lixina'being.' 'Thi'  first time God breathed, the Word that  he spoke was the Son of God, cental with  the Father in all things. God breathes  again, nnd this time it is a human soul  that is formed. Finally not only is  mar.'*: soul created by an omnipotent  God and watched over by a solicitous  providence,', but it- is destined to live  forever. As soon as we attach the note  of immortality to the meanest * thing,  it becomes of wondrous worth. A flower, though- - it is an exquisitely  beautiful thing,, still, - because . lt  fades to-morrow we think little of it; but give it an everlasting life and it becomes' of ,inlhilte  value. The soul will live forcver.-though  the things about us come and go. They  have their periods of birth, perfection  and decadence. Still,"my soul will never die.  . Little wonder that a God came fr m  the skl03 to redeem it. Little.wot-..'.er  that the consuming thought of His life  was that the .wandering sheep of the  fold of Israel might be hrought back.  Little wonder-that He stood by the well  and tnlked with the Samaritan wo..-an  and told her "all that she had done,"  that He received tho penitent Magdalen  and forgave her all her sins because  "she had loved much," or that He wrestled with the spirit of pride and obstl.aey  in the Scribes and Pharisees for tli-ee  olong years that He might win thorn  back. -Finally, little wonder that His  last cry amid the agonies of the cross  was, "I, thirst." It was a thirst for  eouls that consumed Him. Tt was a  burning desire to .bring the world back  to God that parched His throat. . It  was an'all-consuming passion for man's  salvation that finally broke His heart..  God and my soul. After all, when we  get all the things of this life in their  proper perspective there arc but two bi_r  things in this world. They are God nnd  my soul. Everything efse may slip  from my grasp and be destroyed. My  good name may be injured by slander,  my wealth may be consumed by fire,  my health mny be ruined by sickness,  and after death has stripped' me of everything there remain but my *>oul and  my God.  Dlaeaue In Aiiicora Goats.  The common impression that the gnat  Is free from all the diseases to which  sheep are subject is wholly wrong. Tho  goat is wholly related to the sheep, and  has all the parasites to which tiie family is generally subject, and some others  in addition. It thus suffers from this  class of disease very seriously when neglected, although it is more easily relieved than sheep on account of tho  moro open and less oily fleece. They  nlso Buffer from root rot, having foot  of the samo character as those of tho  sheep. This is due to tho exlstenco of a  secretory or excretory glund in the foot  between the toes, known as thc inter*  unguhitcd (������land, which sccrel03 a special lubricating substance by which the  foot points aro kept free from injury. It  is the almost entire ignorance of this  formation of the foot of the sheep, and  goat ns well, which makes tho animal so  subject to that serious disease, tho foot  rot, which is simply an inllaminalion duo  to friction of the parts, soreness following, and blood poison due to intectioii  by iilth. So that the goat must be managed wilh duo regard to tiii-i disability,  nnd watched as carefully as sheep are,  to avoid trouble.  For skin parasites, the same remedies  are to be used as for sheep, but as they  are more easily reached it is 'only necessary to wash or grease thc skin with  some disinfecting liquid, as a common  sheep dip or a preparation of tobacco  stepped in boiling hot water, but not  boiled;- or to grease the animal with  any oily matter strongly scented with  carbolic acid. In fact, goats are to be  treated In all respects like shoep are in  regard to sanitary matters. For the  foot rot, wash and cleanse the sores,  and then apply ' carbolated vaseline, or  any antiseptic preparation, whicli a druggist will make for you.  The goat, too, is quite as frisky an  animal as its cousin tho sheep, If not  moie so; for it will roost on the peak  of the barn roof in "preference to any  other place. A photograph whicli I  have shows the roof of a large barn  covered to the top with goats reclining  at ease and enjoying their elevated re-  tii ing. place. The only, fence which wll  restrain goats is one of wire, on which"  thc fore feet cannot find any hold to  raise tho body over it. If they must be  restrained, tiie-hobble only is" ell'cclive.  This is made by tying one fore foot and  one hind foot together' by a soft rope,  whloh prevents tlie animal.from extending tne fore feet when intending to  jump. General experience goes to prove  that any of the common woven-wire  fences, properly strained and made 3tiff.  is the best kind ' to restrain sheep or  goats, and, indeed, all farm animals.  Thc use of a poke is quite impracticable.  The fact is that the goat, like other  domestic animals, needs attention, but  hot nearly so mueh'as sheepf.doV-It-is  hardier, more easily "satisfied in feeding,  herds-together better and is safer from  dogs than sheep are, but they will not  take caTe of themselves. -They' have  some special but simple needs to be provided for,' and then there may be comfort' and profit with'' them.���������H. S., in  Country Gentleman.  Sweet Lavender.  ..How the delights of many a garden  could be enhanced by the addition of a  Bcented shrub border or small .plot of  ground set apart for the purpose. These  small shiubs are easily cultivated, and  very attractive, aa many aro evergreen,  and each has its various uses.  Among the best and most easily grown  is tho old-faBhioned lavender. The leaves  and' flowers ' are - highly- aromatic, the  scent delicious. It is easily' propagated  from cuttings taken ln the autumn in  the. open ground. 'They must be firmly  pressed into the 'ground, as frosts are  apt-to tlirow them up when the surface  beoomes loosened; these, with a little  care, will be found to be well rooted  in the spring, and can then be planted  in-their.,permanent_^pM_tton,jB������jin_8ome  spot, rather closely > together, and then  thinned' out in thc autumn.   -  When the blossoming time comes on,  in July, the blooms ought to be all cut  off, cutting fairly low, with long stalks.  This is much better for the shrubs, and  insures,a more rapid after-growth. The  shrubs can also bo' improved and  strengthened in the autumn by carefully trimming and cuttong out the dead  "wood and long shoots.   The flowers are most delicious if dried  and collected together in a mass and put  into muslin bags. The muslin must be  fairly coarse, as if too close and fine the  scent is not emitted so easily. Dried lavender blossoms are also useful for keeping woollen things free from moths, and  B, delicate fragrance is imparted to linen  or anything that comes in contact with  them.  The dried stalks make a most excellent  and effective fumigator for a greenhouse  if used in the same way as a tobacco  paper, and the den**7" smoke from the  fame is not only very pleasant to smell,  at the right distance, but seems to leave  uninjured almost nny blooms it comes  in contact with. If used in the same  way it is excellent for disinfecting a sickroom, but the fumes are so thick that  no person must attempt to stay in the  room while it is being done. In some  places lavender shrubs will grow to the  height of six or eight feet.  The gathering in of the fragrant and  abundant lavender harvest ,in the midsummer days is one of the chief pleasures ofthe floral year." It should be  cut before fully out.'on the whole of the  flowering spike, otherwise many of the  delicious scented smaller flowera are lost  in tlio gathering.���������X. Y. Tribune.

"So," replied  the Premier, "ho swears far too much for  that. Wo will mnke him high commissioner to the Church of Scotland."  Senator Proctor of Vermont says tho  finest speech ho ever made consisted oi  only four words. It was a retort to  Senator Hoar's sarcastic little thrust in  a speech directed at tho Green Mountain  sonator. He said: ''So man in Vermont  is allowed to vote unless he has made  five thousand dollars trading with Mas-  Baehusctts people." Whereat Proctor  said: "And we all vote."  The principal of a high school tells thc  following anecdote: One day at school 1  gave a bright boy a sum in algebra, and,  although tlie problem was comparatively  ensy, lie couldn't do it. 1 remarked,  "You ought to bo ashamed of yourself.  At your ago George Washington was a  surveyor." The boy looked mc straight  in tho eyes nnd replied, "Yes, sir; and nt  your ago he was President of Uie United  States.11  A good story comes from the Davidson  Theater, in Chicago, and runs to the effect that a. man from up tho State went  in to see the opera the olher night, pulling hia money from his pockot before ho  reached the box-office window. "I want  tew git a good sent," he said, loud  enough to be henrd all ovor the lobby of  tlie theater, "and I want it right down  tho middle lane, and close up tew the exercises."   He got it.  A hunting party of ladies and gentlemen were detained by a storm at tho  hut of a Virginia bnckwoodsman. Dinner being served, there was an embarrassing paucity of knives.

David Lloyd-George, a member of Par-  . liament from Wales, tells a good story  on himself in connection with a Disestablishment meeting in wliich he lias been  taking part in Wales. -A few days previous, it seems, there had been a Church  Defence meeting held in tho same place,  at wliich a certain prominent dignitary  ' of tho Establishment had spoken, referring to whom iir. Lloyd-George's  chairman observed: "In my opinion that  Churchman is one of the biggest liars in  North Wales, but, thank goodness, we've  got a match for him here to-night!"  "Chums" tells of a certain wild beast  tamer who had been on bad terms for  some time with one of his neighbors,  and the other day, as tho result of a violent quarrel, the latter, with a friend,  attacked the former just before he wns  timed to givo his performance. The  tamer, unwilling to make a scene, took  refuge in the lion's den. Judge of the  amusement of the spectators when they  beheld the two men standing in front of  the cage and shouting through the bar?  at regular intervals: "Come out of that,  you big coward; come out of that!"  Some little while ago a rather eccentric cotton, manufacturer, owning large  mills not a score of miles from Halifax.  England,' and who was familiarly known  in the district round about as "Uwd  H������������������," overheard one of the lads in hi-  semploy remark to somebody: "Aw wish  Aw hed 'Owd H 's' brass, an' he wor  i' th'-warkhaase." Quickly retiring  "Owd H-���������rr" sent for the offender into  his office,*and asked him what he .would  do with the money, supposing his wish  were to be fulfilled. The youngster was  quite equal to the occasion, promptly  replying: "Whoy, th'furst thing Aw'd do  wod be ta fotch yo aat (out), maister."  This clever reply so appeased the old gentleman that the boy was sent back to  his work with half a sovereign in his  pocket.  The other afternoon, says the Kew  York- "Tribune," when President Roosevelt reached Dupont' Circle, a "seeing  Washington" electric car hove in sight,  and the guide continued his lecture  through a megaphone in this way: "On  the left we see thc elegant residence of  Mr. George Westinghouse, the millionaire inventor and electrician,' formerly  the home of tho late James G. Blaine; a  little to the left of front we perceive the  .palatial mansion of Mr. L. Z. Leiter, the  Chicago millionaire, and father of the famous beauty, Miss Mary Leitar, now  Lady. Curzon, the wife of the Governor-  General of India; in the.park'in front  we are confronted by the statue of Ad-  -miral_Dupont,_.and_alao_in jnmt^wejsec,  .the President of the United States on'  horseback." The crowd looked, and one  woman said,' "Whore statue is it, Mc-  '-En-ley's?" "It's .Roosevelt," the. guide  responded.   "He ain't a statue yet."

There is a prominent doctor in Ger-  mantown rwho is busy telling a little  joke on -himself, says tho Philadelphia  "Evening Telegraph." It appears that he  employed an Irish servant who had just  arrived from the "ould sod." Starting  out one morning, he noticed his office  windows" were rather "dirty, and 'calling  Bridget, he instructed her to clean them  before he returned. At the same'time  he told her that he would stop and purchase a new chamois skin and send it  home, and with this she was to clean the  windows. After he had gone his rounds  he found-them thickly streaked with  grease. He called Bridget, and the following colloquy took place:  "Biidgct, didn't I tell you to clean the  windows?"  "Yes, sor."  "And didn't I tell you to use the new  chamois?"  -   "Yes, sor."  "Well, did you use it?"  "Sure I did, sor."  "Let me see the chamois," said the  doctor, and Bridget promptly brought it.  Then for the first time he learned that  his wife.had left the house a half hour  before-he. did in the morning and had  sent home some tripe. The doctor declines to say what happened to the  chamois skin.  Lord Mllner.  "H. W. N.," the special correspondent  for Tho Daily Chronicle in South Africa  during the settlement, has included in  his description of the truns>for of power  consequent upon Lord Kitchener's departure for home the following description of Lord Milner :���������  He seemed nervous and rather worn.  The strain of tho last three years has  inevitably told on hiin. He is grey now,  Jtnd going bald.    The lines on hi3 face  are deeper.    And yet  I have     seldom  known a man change so little either in  mind  or  body with  time.    He  is  tho  samo Milner whom I found President oi  the Union in Oxford when 1 went up as  a freshman.   Milner of Balliol, the conspicuous  undergraduate,  the    man    ol  whom Balliol men boasted that ho waa  of no common clay, the winner of prizes,  the favorite of the wise old master, had  thc same statesmanlike.appearance, tho  ���������ame statesmanlike ult-fcranco then    as  now.    At  that time he seemed  to  be  twenty years older than tho rest of us,  and he is tho t-anic ago still.  Even then  I recognized him as���������not tlio wittiest or  the most brilliant���������but the most serious  speaker I was over likely to hear.   He  had a wider view  and a    more    solid  knowledge  than  wo had    thought    of  reaching.   He spoke then also with tho  lame���������no,  with  a  more markedly  dispassionate coldness and impersonal detachment from what he was saying, as  though he implied,    "I am telling you  what is true to the best of my power.  You may take it or leave it.   That is  no personal concern of mine, for it remains true."   This deliberately intellectual way of looking at things, this enforced reserve  of emotion,  has  often    reminded me of Mr. John Morley's manner, however much  the  two  mny now  disagree  on the conclusions    of policy.  Milncr's appearance has also a quality  like John Morley's; it does not lend itself to caricature.    How wretched and  Indistinctive the comic pictures of him  arcl    There seems to be no feature for  the caricaturist to grasp and exaggerate.   No one can make anything of him,  though the jaws are exceptionally strong,  the forehead above the eyes bulges with  intellectual work, there are now marked  wrinkles down the cheeks, and the eyes  themselves are full 'of what I can only  call suppressed  sympathy.    Less    ovon  than Kitchener is he by nature a harsh  or insensate man.    One could imagine  that by nature he was rather given to  over-sensitivoness,-   self-questioning, and  an introspection of motives.   It is that  over-sensitivoness, I.think, that    sometimes,  in spite of* his  studied Tescrve,  drives him to sudden outbursts of indiscretion . in'  private - conversation    and  public speech.   But it is an indiscretion  that makes his character more attractive, though it is none the less.indiscreet.  Though he could never be what is called  a popular man, being too fastidious   in  thought and too scholarly in taste, his  power  of attraction  over     those who  know  him intimately  and  ' work  with  him is certainly extraordinary.   He has  a .good general's  art of    trusting    his  staff.   When he has chosen his man, he  "gives him his head," "and neither "does  the work himself nor keeps badgering  him with criticisms and objections.    He  has the strong man's power   of readily  owning to his sub* rdinates when he has'  been wrong, and the gentleman's power  of always treating them with respect.  He has tho further, though much commoner, power.of getting through a prodigious  amount of  work himself.    The  consequence is that, though he has    a  reputation for stiffness and chilliness of  manner, I have never known a man for  whom his  staff will  work with    more  whole-hearted devotion, andit will never  be from those wlio know him best that  one will hear a word against him.   I can  say all this with the greater freedom,  because  there was  no  one more sorry  than I when ho left the advanced wing  of the Liberal party and struck out on  the  course  which  h-is brought him to  his present high position.  A   Resourceful   Scrcreant.  .The German officer is nothing if not  practical, so there may be an element  of truth in the following incident,  whieh comes from Berlin :���������A sergeant  was perplexed how to deal with a bow-  legged recruit. , At last he bethought  himself of a plan. , Taking a one-mark  piece, about the ,size of a shilling, he  ordered the recruit to_* put it between  his-kneesrand^said,���������-Woe-betide-you-if-  you let the money fall before I come  back in five minutes."  The unhappy recruit, with knees pressed together, remained in that uncom-'  fortable position for a minute, and at  last, struck by a happy idea, he took  thc coin from between his knees and put  it in his pocket.  When the sergeant hove in sight he  hurriedly replaced ���������>-" at he thought to bo  the same coin. It vas. however, a two-  mark piece, about as large as a florin.

On one occasion, whon Robert Fech-  ter, the tragedian, appeared ln "Monte  Crlsto," the curtain rose at twelve-  thirty for the last act discovering  Fechter in an attitude of contemplation. For some moments he did not  make a movement, and not a sound  broke the silence, until a small but  clear voice ln the gallery queried, ln  tones of anxiety: "I hope we are not  keeping you up, sir?"  An English paper tells a good story  of a Droltwich barber. He was just  finishing lathering a customer and. was  talking volubly as usual. "Yes, sir," he  said, "there's no carelessness allowed  by our employer. Every time we cut  ft customer's face we are lined sixpence, nnd If we make an ugly gash lt  fcosts us a shilling."

"Not the  least," said Sherman. Then leaning  over, he whispered in his guest's ear,  but so loudly' that everybody else in  tho tent overheard It. "We are going  pretty much where we damn please."  The wife of a well-known New York  lawyer, who visited London this summer, was operated on for appendicitis  ln the British metropolis shortly after  her arrival there. The flrst day the  patient was able to accompany her  husband for a walk she met Ambassador Joseph Choate, an intimate-friend,  who had shown much solicitude for her  recovery. The delighted Mr. Choate  greeted-the lawyer warmly, but seemed  to Ignore his wife, who finally said,  with a pout: "Why; Mr. Choate, you  don't take any notice of me. You  haven't spoken a word to me yet. I  really believe you have forgotten me."  "My dear madam," said Mr. Choate,  smiling, "I must confess that I did not  recognize yoil* without your appendix."  The methods employed ' by ex-Governor.. Throckmorton of Texas to make  clear tHe",clalms of his clients were ���������  perhaps unlike those of any other lawyer, but they often carried conviction  with them. At one time he was defending a man who was on trial for  murder ln Gainesville, Texas. He desired to make it plain to the jury that  the man whom his client killed, although in his shirt-sleeves and without a pistol-pocket, might have been  well-armed. "Can you see' any signs  of arms about me?" demanded the  general, taking off his coat, and standing before the jurors. They shook  their heads. "Watch me!" he said,  dramatically, and with that he proceeded to draw a pistol from under  each arm, one from each boot-leg, and  from the back of, his neck a bowie-  knife of most sinister aspect.  The following story goes to show  lhat all men have not' their price���������a  theory held by some. It also emphasizes the fact that' a. rebuke can be  more efficiently given quietly than ln  anger. Once when Gen. Ludlow, then  a colonel of engineers, was ln charge  of some Important Government contracts, a contractor came Into his ollice  and slipped into his hand a bill of a  large denomination, and at the same  time spoke of the size of his bid for  certain Government works. Col.' Ludlow at once made the contractor feel at  home by smiling and inviting him to  take a chair. Then he handed the contactor a cigar. The visitor by this  time wasi in high feather over the apparent success of his attempt at bribery, but his Idea of Ludlow was suddenly changed. "Won't you have a  light, too ?", asked the colonel, and stepping "to tlie~ilrepla-ce~wlth-the-bIH-he-  lighted lt and politely applied in a  flame to the contractor's cigar, where  he held, it until lt was entirely consumed. It Is related that there was o  deep silence; then the contractor i*  away gloomily and never returned  What Became of the Pom-  peiians ?  AX NOP.DAU raises an Interesting question concerning  Pompeii, lio writes as follows to the "Neue Frele  Presse" (Vienna):  "One thins has always been a puzzle  to me. Here was a nourishing city ot  about 30,000 inhabitants, most of whom  evidently were well-to-do. A few hundreds, at most, lost their lives in the  destruction of the city; the rest  escaped. The eruption of Vesuvius  continued only a few days, after which  the district returned to lis usual placid  condition. In many places the deposit  of ashes and lava was only a yard  thick, and lt was not more, than three  yards thick at any point yet excavated.  "How did lt happen that these 30,000  homeless persons showed no desire to  return to their beautiful houses, so  well built that lhey are standing to  this day, and which could have been  restored, at the time, with very little  labor? Why did they .not make the  slightest attempt to regain their valu-  nble property In land and buildings,  furniture, bronze, gold, silver and jewels? Did the men of that tlni" hnve so  llttlo love of home that they could  leave It without! a backward glance at  the first unpleasantness? Were the  Pompellans so rich that the loss of  their perfectly appointed homes appeared tilvlal lo them, so that they  preferred settling elsewhere to restoring their city? Or did superstition  prevent tho attempt?  "This indifferent renunciation of  their patrimony by a whole cltyful Is  to me an Insoluble enigma which forces  Itself tho more strongly upon my attention now as I walk along the finely  paved streets between houses which  need only new roofs to make them  again habitable."  Keep to the Point.  The Sli4.it of Horne*.  A veterinary surgeon raises thc question as to whether a good deal of the  accidents which happen in driving may  not bo due to dufeelive eyesight in  horses. Whether this be so or not it  would be useful for, at any rate, thoso  having valuable animals, which lhey aro  in the habit of driving along the highways or in populous districts, to havo  the sight of the hors������s periodically tested by a qualified surgeon. Howevcr.few  ever think of having a horse's eyesight  inspected or tested, and yet there is probably little doubt that the evil of defective sight is much more general than  is commonly supposed; undoubtedly a  large proportion of the "runaway" accidents wliich happen may be put down  to thi3 effect.���������Rural World.  News of Britain as "made in Germany," is always entertaining. This  delightful paragraph anent the coronation postponement rppcarcd in a local  paper of a small German town :���������  Sir Wilfrid Laurier has decided that  the procession which was arranged for  Friday shall take place as arranged, and  that the Queen and the Princes shall  be present. This is to avoid a financial  crisis in London, where the postponement of all festivities is giving rise to  such discontent that serious uprisings  are feared.  Progressive Turkish Wome'  The flrst Turkish woman, lt is said,  who has visited Europe with the object  ot exposing the unhappy condition of  her countrywomen is the Princess  rialrle Ben-Ayad, who Is now In London with her husband, All Nourl Boy,  lately consul-general of Turkey ln Rotterdam. The princess Is declared to be  well educated and accomplished, and  expects to give a course of lectures on  social conditions In Turkey, ln which  she hopes to arouse sentiment against  the existing state of affairs. Her husband Is well known as a leader of the  Turkish Legitimist party, which Is  working for the release ot Murad V.  from prison, where his brother, the  reigning Sultan, placed him on the  plea of insanity. It is said ln political  circles that the accession of Murad to  the throne would introduce a progressive policy Into Turkish' governmental  affairs. The princess, who Is deeply  Interested ln these plans, is the daughter of tho late Mahmoud Pacha Ben-  Ayad of Tunis, a friend of Napoleon  III. and prominent during his reign In  Paris society.

For Sale���������An Island Kingdom.  The chance Is now open to any millionaire to own an island kingdom or  to become a Highland lord and live In  an historic castle. The advertisement  offering these estates appeared in some  United States newspapers, and was  signed by the business agent of the  Duke of Argyll.  "The Island Kingdom of Tlree," as  the advertisement calls it, is one of tho  Inner Hebrides, an island, about thirteen miles long and nowhere more than  six miles wide. It is only twenty  feet above the level of the sea, and  there are hardly any trees on it; but  the land is mostly fertile, and the tenants, who live by farming, cattle-raising and fishing, pay the duke rentals  aggregating more than fifteen thousand dollars a year.  "Excellent winter bathing, good golf  links, splendid beaches, safe bathing  ���������and good sea-Ashing" are some of the  island's attractions that might be expected to appeal to a purchaser."  Inverary Castle, Argyllshire, the ancestral abode of the Dukes of Argyll,  Is also advertised; but it is not an ancient building. The oldest part of It  dates back to a period not earlier than  1750, and much of the castle has been  rebuilt since 1877.  The scenes pictured by Scott In the  "Legend of Montrose" were supposed  to have taken place In what is known  as the "old" castle, which stood near  the sea and has been quite swept  away. No,such romantic interest attaches to the present castle.  But the man who buys the island  kingdom of Tiree���������or Tyfee, as some of  the books call it���������will probably; find ln  modern-fiction a good many allusions  to lt. From the novels of William  Black alone might be compiled a pretty  good guide-book to the Hebrides, Islands that, as another admirer has  said, are "beautiful in calm, wonderful In storm."  It was once remarked hy 1-iofessor  Huxley, after falling into nn Indiscretion which annoyed him, lhat when a  man says what he has no iiced to say  he Is sure 10 blunder. The tiuth of the  observation will hardly be questioned  unless by the very few, ir there are?  any such, who never say moro than,  there Is necessity for .saying. Most oC  us acknowledge, if we leview our own.  experience ln the matter, that we have:  frequently erred by saying what needed not to be said. But wl.y Is lt that  people so persistently commit this mistake ? In the ordinary small talk oC  the household, or of society, it matters  little whether It is committed or nou  But when serious matters are ln question, whether ln conversation, in set  speech, or ln correspondence, a case lsn  frequently ."polled by Irrelevance or redundance. To say what you ine^n to*  say Is comparatively c-isy; to leave oft  when you havo said it Is difficult, andl  for many people impossible. In Huxley's case the fault, which he probably  did not often commit, wns due neither  to want ot clear thinking, nor to want  of facility In the use of words. One or  the other or bolh of these causes will  explain tho inability to "keep to the*  point" which Is usually apparent In the:  speech nnd writing nf u'U'dncaled persons. But often, alhO, the speaker or  writer forgets lhat extraneous considerations, Interesting enough to hlinselfi  are of no Interest to thoae whom he-  wishes  to convince.    c  President Loubet's Wardrobe  A correspondent of the "Crl de Paris" has ascertained certain facts ia regard to President Loubet's wardrobe  which are being copied with extraordinary avidity by the Parisian and provincial press. It seems that M. Loubet has flve Prince Albert coats���������two  for summer,'two for winter, and one  extra fof .grand occasions. This last  one has been worn only three times���������at  the opening of the exposition of 1900,  at the reception of the King of Sweden,  and at the garden party in honor of  the Shah of Persia.

Lou-  -bet���������invarlably--v,'cars^-a_plain,_black_  satin tie���������not tied by hand, but sewn  together and attached with a clasp. M.  Loubet used formerly to wear false  cuffs, but one day, while mak!ngva  sudden gesture, the right-hand cuff  slipped off and rolled on the floor. This  happened at the Luxembourg Palace,  when M. Loubet was president of the  Sdr.ate. Since then, M. Loubet's shirts  have been made with permanently attached wristbands. M. Loubet's trousers are very peculiar. They are black  or gray In color, but their cut is of the  old-fashioned pattern, with the top of  the trousers coming up as high as the  armpits. M. Loubet haa always worn  trousers of this quaint type, and Is so  accustomed rto them that he has an  Inveterate dislike for evening clothes,  which, with low-cut, open waistcoat,  render the armpit trousers Impossible,  The president's wardrobe is, however,  provided with several palrg of evening  trousers suitable for low-cut, open  waistcoats.  Anthony Hope and His Mother.  An American author who has recently returned from London, wliere he.  came much ln contact with Mr. Anthony Hope Hawkins, tells this anecdote Illustrating one cf the most  charming personal traits of the famous  novelist.  Mr. Hawkins has private apartments  in Buckingham street, next door to the*  house ln which William Black llvefil  for many years.

He had just entered Into the full enjoyment of this arrangement when he-  discovered that his absence from the*  family roof was a. source of keen anxiety to his mother, who could not brlng;-  herself to relinquish her motherly soil-!  cltude for the comfort of her son. She'  was In constant fear that he was not  properly cared for, and spent many  wakeful hours at night worrying over  him.  Immediately on learning of Iier anx-J  iety the son asked permission to speni  his nights In his old room under the*  family roof, using his apartments la  Buckingham street simply as a place  In which to do his work. Every night,  and often, at great inconvenience, he  returns to the parish house, solely to  insure the peace of mind of his mother,,  who Is now well advanced ln years.  Affection of a Beaver.

General  MacArthur took up the job and found  that for one year there was as much  fighting to be done as there was before  General Otis   left.    When   he   left  he  pronounced the war to be practically  over, and his tour was declared to be  very  successful.    These  generals  are-  entitled to their country'u gratitude for  their successful work; but, as far as  the war being over Is concerned, that'  Is another question.

THE great English artist, Turner,  not only took strange liberties  with the topography and architecture ot the landscapes he  painted, but with the materials he employed. Some truly masterly effects  he obtained In ways which, although  amusing, were questionable, since lhey  were not permanent, and must In lime  impair -the value oC his pictures.  On one occasion, he clapped In a setting sun by means of a common red  water, and finding lt looked as he desired, left lt 'there and puluted up lo  it. Again, wishing to secure the -contrast of some animated figure upon a  terrace in silhouette against a golden  sky just put in, he. cut out a barking  dog in black paper and applied il by  way oC experiment. It proved successful, and lhe canine paper doll was not  afterward removed nor replaced.  Still more extraordinary is the anecdote, related by Mr. Samuel Palmer, of  Turner's invitation to three children to  collaborate with him. The artist was  staying at the house of a friend at  Knockholt, and had brought with him  ���������a fine drawing of which 'the distance  was already carefully outlined, but the  foreground remained 'blank.  One morning, Instead of resuming  work himself upon this drawing, he  called in his host's children, and rubbing in three separate saucers three  cakes of paint, red, 'blue *and yellow,  gave one *to eachj child, telling them to  dabble their fingers in the bright colors,  and then amuse themselves by making  prints and marks upon his unfinished  pioture. Of course .they accepted the  unexpected invilatlon with glee, and  presently he was gravely looking on  while thirty smeary finger-tips did .their  ecstatic best 'to convert his exciulslte  sketch into a -crazy rainbow.  Suddenly, in the midst of the -frolic,  he cried out, "Stop!" They stopped,  and he took back the drawing, added  imaginary landscape Sorms suggested  by the' accidental coloring, and rapidly  completed a striking and beautiful  whole.  Shortly afterward, at dessert one day,  he amused himself by arranging some  varicolored sugar-plums upon his plate.  "When suddenly disturbed and the 'pattern scattered, he cried out In vexation:  "There! You have made me lose fifty,  guineas!" ��������� ������is^������., ������������������  He had been evolviiiS' a color scheme  ln candy for his next landscape.
