The first smelter  was built a long while ago, but was  never blown in for some reason, Other  parties have another smelter > under  way, and whether it will ever be blown  in is a question. From reports, there  iH more of a town site speculation than  a 6inelter operation in the denl.

The Kootenay Mail has given some  figures in connection with the flotation  of the McCullough Greek Hydraulic  Mining Co., which as usual, are far  from correct. The Mail's object in  giving lfiem'rfct"-figTifes" is~ hard~trr  conceive. The facts are these : The  McCullough Creek Hydraulic Mining  Company has a capitalization of  $125,000, of 125,000 shares of the par  value of $1 each. About one half of  the stock, or over 05,000 shares are  treasury shares.

The McCullough Creek Hydraulic  Mining Co. have a very valuable placer  gold property on McCullough Cruek.  and their returns this fall from a little  better than two days work of netrly  7 ounces coarse gold should prove that  lhe claims of the company as to the  value of their properties is not in tht  least over estimated.  The Comstock Lode.  The Comstock, Nevada, lode was  ilrst discovered as a gold mine, although the subsequent discovery oi  sulphut'Cts of silver among the gold  eventually made it the first silver  mine iu thc United States, says the  Mining and Scientific Press. But it  was not until after the fifth year that  silver predominated over the gold,  the yield for that year being :' Gold,  84,040,000; silver, - $7,400,000; total,  $12,400,000. Its 'greatest product in  any one year was during the bonanza  days of 1877, which recorded a yield of:  Gold, $14,520,014.68; silver, $21,780.-  022.02; total, $38,301,530.70. This ib  taken from the official government  report, treasury department, Washington. Afterward gold again predominated, the yield for 1885 being:  Gold, $1,720,331.25; silver, $1,415,171.04  total, $3,144,002.20. Gold has continued to predominate each year  since.

On a certain  morning the dogs chased a stray hog  down the main road, and onHhe return-  trip stopped to play at the railroad  crossing.- Heedless of the conspicuous  warning to look out for the locomotive,  Tige was struck by that engine of destruction and lillled, alnjor escaping by  sheer dog luck.. Damage suits-were a"  new,thing at'the time, so when the  owner of the,dogs commenced an ac-^  tion before a rural justice of the peace  there was an immense crowd of uelgh-  I bors arid sympathizers present at the  hearing.

Henri 'Vilmor-  In, more than������a~ thousand new wheats  having been tested by him. -Ten years  ago similar work was begun at tho  State* institution- In Minnesota. Mr.'  Harwood writes: ' "To' create a new  wheat, the* pollen from the flower of  one wheat must bo artificially transferred to the stigma of the* flower of  another wheat. Wheat Is a self-fertilizing plant. Left to Itself, It will re-  produce'itself throughout^ endless centuries. Great'care"is necessary in the  work, and trained' men' are 'essential.  As soon as the pollen.Is'transferred���������  which is.done about four o'clock in th������  morning, at'the hour-when the wheat'  florets open���������the head of wheat,Is'"n-  oased.in a tissue-sack so.that/the work  may not be Interfered with by any pilfering In������ect or bird. .Two of the best-  knowi varieties are selected, one for  the father.the other for thc mother of  tho new race. When the harve'st comes  it may he that the new wheat has  somi! of the'poor and .few of-the good  characteristics of the parents; or the  reverse may bo the case. - It Is Impos-  slbleto say in advance what'the new  wheat will be.

The moths had  got into th ' f tufilng of a very old soldier, indeed, wearing a Confederate  unlformi and the ghastly spectacle presented itself of his wooden head stand-  lug on the table, entirely apart from  his trunk. The reopening of his case  occurred later in the day, when, the  moths having been killed and a fresh  instalment'of camphor mixed with the ���������  sUilflng, the figure was returned to Its  place under glass.

Something about her���������perhaps the expression of her eyes, or tlie way that  her bright hair waved back from her  Xorohead���������reminded him of a woir.iui  ���������who had once been, supreme In biMiuty;  a dead woman whose "words hnd m.ii  him .tramping, almost -.penniless nnd  through bitter baiilsblps, hundreds of  miles on the way to Kngiiand.  A girl nnd a man; sitting directly in  front of him were talking of Winifred  ���������Gray, and Hope Newcome listened with  iinterest. If they had spoken evil of  her he would certainly have lnllio'.ed  I summary -punishment upon the^m������n.  but they had only good things to s-ty.  The.girl, told:the.;man What -a surprising "hit" 'Miss Gray had made las;  spring, and how she had been "made"  after her first night at the Duke of  Clarence's-by the extravagant praise of  one famous dramatic critic. She had  only been in I/ondon a few months, but  already her photogi.iphs were in greater demand than ttioFC. of any other aot-  ress (Hope resolved a I once to get one),  wfhile there was a new style of shoe  and a new rose named after her.  Newcome went o'_. with uie crowd  when It was all ovei '"nut almost involuntarily he turned io words the stage  entrance for one n.ore look.at his divinity, whom perh..p.i he should never  have a. chance to see again.  The "Jphnnies" stared superciliously  nt him, and -looked at ench other with  raised;; questioning eyebrows.- Perhaps  ���������ther iwould have laughed; but Hope  Newcome was ,not exactly the sort of  man one laughed - at unless one were  over six feet In height and broad in  proportion. Still, he was ashamed of  i, himself for forming one ofj such . a  -group, .amd was half inclined to" go'  away again without waiting for a  glimpse of Miss .Gray, when a smart  brougham drove up,, and close behind  It a four-wheeled cab.  ' ',  "That's Mrs. Peter Carlton's little'  turn-out;" one youth said to:another,,  nodding at t1ie 'brougham; and a't the  Game moment a big man, who'appeared  to be without companions, stepped to  the kerbstone and spoke in a low voice  to the driver of the cab.  "That's bur Wrinnie's chariot.: Comes  "tor her every, night. Not quite so  grand as the other, eh?'.' remarked the  youth.;.   ' *   ' .  **   "Give her'ti'me," said hisfriend; and  they  both  laughed. *    " .-,.'.  Hope Newcome clenched his-hands  and" breaLhed hard. He'-would have  liked nothing better than to teach the  pair a .lesson in "discretion, but .he realized ,that for Miss Gray's sake he had  better let them alone. He looked with  great interest at the plain vehicle  which'had the honor of .taking Winifred Gray home.-and he,wondered what  the well-dressed man on the pavement  was sajrlngrln such,a,low, earnest tone  to the cabman. He could not hear the  words, but, as lie listened, he caught  the driver's answer: "That's aU'right,.  -sir, but I couldn't*do it.- It's as much  as my place would 'be w<>rth." . . ; _-  Newcome's ears^-seeriied .'suddenly to  be   sharpened.    "But  look   here,"   the  other urged," ''there's    no'   reason" "  Aealn  his voice dropped  so low   that  -the rest was.lost. . . ._  For three or four minutes the conversation went on, Newcome the. c, liy  one In -the crowd who continued to give  It attention, for meanwhile Mrs. Peter  ���������Carlton, and her "maid had come out  from-the stage door.'th e^actress_in ���������a  magnificent evening wrap' over a ball  gown. She was evidently "going on"  eomewhere. Then appeared two or  'three pretty girls, .whose -small parU  and salaries to .match did "not prevent  'r, their being beautifully;" dressed..^  ?  But Newcome did. nofeven see them.

He had only landed in Liverpool a week  ago from the ship in which he had been  a steerage passenger. From Liverpool  Ite had walked much of the way,, to  T-������ondon, to economize the little money  be had left. . *  *  In tbat part of America whence he  Joame, men did not  take very long to  ake up their, minds or to act.after  ������hey were made up. and Newcome. had  not ;epent itlme enough; in ���������,**���������_' slower  country to change his .ways.' *..    .  JTor a moment fte.i'hesitated,'; becau'sp  he hated making ihimself -more con-  splouous than he was already, and prudence  whispered   that    he    might be  tumbling into a marc's inest. BuV'lt  was only for a moment.* Then he/took  one stride ��������� across the pavement and  '.addressed the driver of aliss Gray's  'Sab.     -    "If I weriOyou," said he,; "I wouldn't  have anyone with me on that box  iseat." -  Cabby stared, flushed* and frowned,  'oach phase of his emotion being visible in the light over the stage door. ''"  'Of ail the cheek I ever 'card," he  -jbservedin return,'"lf that alnlt aibout  .the wuatl :.Wot business is It o' yours,  anyhow, Mr. Buffalo Bill?"  Hope; Newcome's handsome face wac  ed, and his eyes flashed; but he.was  iot going to spoil everything by a .vulvar brawl with: a cabman;7 He had  ken In a low voice, but cabby: hnd  >urpos������l7 replied In a loud, clear tone,  '������ tttiat everyone near -tamed to see  Vhat might be going on.  'I overheard your conversation a few  llnutee ag������ with the man you've got  ������sWe yen," N������we<?m������  uewered,   a^  quietly as beforo. This was an exaggeration of tllio truth; but it had the-  oft'eot he Intended. The driver wriggled on his seat and Unshod a look al  his companion, as if dem.indlng to be  got out of the difficulty.  "I'm a friend of his," said the other  quickly. "If you hoard anything, you  ���������must have heard that. I'd like to know  what uft'alr it is of yours, though?"  "Well, I just thought I'd mention lt,  that's all," dra.wled Newcome, speaking for the ilrst time, 'with a pronounced Yankee nccent. "And sec hero,  I haven't got much, time to. spare for ���������  yoii. . How long are you going to tako  nbouit getting clown?"  "Do you -'.want me to call the policq  and recommend them to pack you oft  to Bedlam?" -demanded the man by th9  driver.  "You can do as you like about that,"  said Newcome, through his nose, "after you've come down oft your porch."  Mrs. Peteri Carlton had driven away,  and the pretty girls had gone, arid the  crowd that was left threw itself heart  and soul into the scene. Nobody hnd  interfered as yet; for-it appeared; to all,  that under the badinage there was*  more than .met the eye or ear.  "Come now, you clear out of this,"  advised the driver's {companion; "or  you'll' get something you won't like." '  "I'll go when you've got down."  ���������,The 'man; who had kept his temper,  and kept his voice; under control as  well, grew suddenly reckless. It .was  twenty minutes past eleven, and ha  was anxious lo be rtd of this persistent .Paul Pry, whose ���������interference .was  likely: to prove inconvenient. He had  been employed to do a certain thing,  aind'though his bargain with cabby was  far from complete, he' had found the  man amenable to reason, and was morally sure.he would be open to further,  more dazzling offers.' Already he had  paid five pounds down for the mere  privilege o������ sitting on the box-seat of  Miss Gray's cab, t'he,drlver',so far suspecting nothing more'serious than lovesick romance; and tliere were other Instructions which must be carried out.  He leant across the cabman and  .'.Hatched the whip from its socket.  "Now," he exclaimed. ."Will you stop  this "drunken game?"  -ie glait-ii 01..111 ...

In a flash the  band that had grasped the other's limp  right arm sprang to-,his neck, and,  twisting In his , coat-collar, wrenched  tie etout figure".from' its high seat,  bringing it In'a heap to "the ground.  Then It was jerked up again, tottering  and staggering, pale - lips cursing;  ���������* "You shall pay for this���������I'll have you  up for assault!';-the man sputtered.'his  face yellow-white. "Confound you!  You've broken my arm."  ���������     -    _  "Have me up, by all means," -returned Newcome, politely, -though -his  breath was coming and going quickly.  "If you don't mind tpe circumstances  getting out, I'm sure I don't. I've  nothing to"conceal."  , "What's up here?' demanded George  Anderson's;voice; and, turning: with a  start, Winifred saw not only the manager, but his friend," Lionel Macalre.  "Oh, it's you, Mr. Newcome!" the ac-  t������r went on. "Have you been getting  Into a row?"  Hope Newcome faced him frankly.  If he hsrd glanced nt the millionaire Instead, he would have- ������en a thing  Vhloh Wjlnifred iBsw-^-or'thought that  *h* bjuw���������with sutprlse and bewilder-  raant.  Lionel Macaire's eyes -were not even  fer her. They had darted straight as  a hawk darts upon Its .prey, to tbe faoe  mt  the  maa  -whom  N*nro������������ne  h������d  bo  rorciDlyr unseated.' The look was brier  as a lightning flash, but full of concentrated passion.  Then the eyes traveled to the man  with the wide-brimmed hat, resting  upon him for an instnnt with nn extraordinary, nn unreadable expression.  Arid both looks passed so quickly that  a second later AVinlfred was hardly  sure sho had not magnified or altogether  imagined  their meaning.  "I think, llr. Anderson, lt won't  amount to a 'row,' " Hope Newcome  answered, wiping a trickle of blood  from his forehead, where a sledgehammer fist had struck, aiming for his  temple.'** ."I merely'objected, on principle, to persons getting a drive on other  people's oabs,  that's all."  "The gent was a friend of mine,"  grumbled the frightened cabman, Hinging his crumb of explanation to AVinlfred Gray, who was his employer. ' "I  guv im permission to get up 'beside  me, not thinkin' the lydy would object,  when blow me.If this 'ere bloke didn't  come Interfeiin'."  "The 'gent,' as you call him, paid for  your friendship. I saw that���������for It  was clumsily done," said Newcome.  "And If I might presume to advise the  lady .who has hired you, I would suggest that she asks for another driver  to-morrow night."  Once the man who had stood nursing his broken -arm looked at Mr. Macalre. : In his bloodshot eyes was a  question or an appeal, but it was unanswered. The millionaire stared  through thegreat lumbering form as  if It had been of thinnest-air, his discolored face expressionless now as a  mask.  With a mien of one ashamed and defeated, yet defiant still, the' big follow  went lumbering off, muttering to himself as he walked. And,with him the  crowd of onlookers began melting  .away. The fun was over for them,  though ' It had been prime while lt  lasted. They had seen what they came  for, and a good deal more besides. Of  the principal actors in the scene, only  Winifred looked' after the departing  one,-,:noting with a glance of shuddering fascination the bull-neck and the  formidable though slouching shoulders.  Then her eyes came back to the  ''bronze statue."  ��������� "Thank you for your advice," she  said, quite simply. "I shall take It.  And .thank you for what you have done  ���������though "I scarcely understand even  now what it was."  "There is nothing'to thank me for,"  answered Hope Newcome. "But���������may  IicaSI;you another cab?"  "It is not necessary to trouble you  further," said Mr. Macalre, speaking  for the first timo since his appearance.  "Mr. Anderson and I will see that Miss  Gray Is taken care of."  To save her life, Winifred could not  help looking^ straight into Hope New-  come's eyes." , Perhaps. She* was not  wholly - responsible - for ' the * message  they, conveyed, but lo him they seemed  to say: "I don't want them to do ary-  tbing for me.   I want-you tp do lt."  "Accepting the message, his' hat in his  hand, the young p'*uper replied to the  millionaire like an equal. "I asture  you it is no troulMc, but a pleasure. It  tho lady will allow me, I should liko  to get her a cab.'.'  Near by a "footman was touching his  tall hat. Mr. Macaire's carriage had  urrived.  ,. .   _ ..._'-  ������.-������������������-���������'*���������--'."���������. '.'  "Come along, Anderson," he said,  shrugging his .shoulders.- Both men  bowed low to -Winifred; Anderson  nodded to Newcome, .Macaire gave hire  another curiously contemplative look,  and then the two were shut up by the  footman in the. millionaire's.carriage.  "Ain't you goin' 'to have me; miss?"  whined the driver.. "None of this business ain't my" fault."       - ~      '   -      ' '.  "You can send in your bill to-mor^  row morning, and I'll pay you what is  due,"'said Winifred.   "But I sha|n't  want you again. ' I'm afraid I'can't  trust "you after this."  Mumbling, he--'drove away, the five  pounds he" had earned so easily partially consoling him for - the business  he had '.lost.  Not far away was the corner .of the  street, crossed by a wider thorough1  fare; and there cabs piled for hire. As  the vehicle just discharged vanished in  one direction a wave of Hope New-  come's hand���������he standing in the middle- of-'-.the"'.;str.eet-^brought;;a. hansopn  round'the corner and up to the stage-  door.

"For some reason the man wanted to  drive on your cab, and���������well, I thought  youi.-wouldn't wish him toi: It'you', understood. So I sugget-ted, that he should  get off, and.'when he:"wouldn't I took  himoft, that's all." -             -    ���������  "I rihould think you did!" Winifred's  ��������� mood was far enough from'...merriment,  but she broke into a. little laugh over  hisiquiet' way of explaining the: thing  that he had done���������nlso at the expression -of /mingled bewilderment and  alarm on the wltheicii-apple facfi of  her -maid.  She let Newcom" help he- Into the  hansom, but it was the msld who .told  the new cabman where toi drive. Then,  with a smile/and a. last murmur of  thanks, she was gone out of his sight.  ''I'd give a; good deal to. know /what  that brute's real object was," the young  man said to himself, as wistfully he  watched the hansom drive round the  corner and disappear." "Did he only  want to find, out where she lived,-or  was there something more?; "Was - he  doing( it on 'his own,' or, was there  someone else.'behisd him? Well, any-  h-TW, whatever it was, It didn't come  off. 'And helHgive a; Job to a surgeon  before ihe gets into any more mischief.  I was In luck to have done* It, out of  training as I am; but I felt the Ismai*.  bone of his arm sriap^-and eervo him  right."    .  Hope Newcome walked away,; turning his face; southward, for his lodgings were beyond the bounds of polite  civilisation, on the "wrong side of the  river." As/he crossed "Waterloo Bridge,  the moon���������honcy-ye'Iow in , a hyacinth  6ky���������hung over the; -water. Its broken  reflection like a fallen cup of jpold that  drifted down the river ^vith the tide.  The youne man stood stiH, and  looked back ivlth -ft etrange, new ache  In his Jieart, at the London that he had  left, its brtSjUngB stately, nSmost repel-  lentiy splendid, silhouetted against .th?  sky in the moon-paled darkness. Ho  was thrust out of that splendor, not  wanted. He was poor, and alone, and  the mission on which he had come  seemed as-far from him In Its accomplishment as the moon was from the  black w,iter. Yet the water was swift,  and it caught and held the rnoon'Srlm-  age.  He was young, and poverty���������even a  knowledge of hunger unsatisfied���������had  not silenced the high song of his blood,  or chilled its warmth. He did not despair. And though he had met disappointment to-night, In seeking Uho ilrst  round of the ladder, still, he had seen  a face fair enough to brighten darkness, nnd he had ihnd his wish. Ho  had nsked of Fate that he might serve  Winifred Gray; nnd he 'hnd served her.  Though they never met- again, she  would not quite forget.  * ��������� :.      * - * ��������� ���������  The thought of home wns like balm  on a. wound to Winifred that night.  Sho and her mother lind tnken a small  flat near Brynnston Squnre, and when  the hansom stopped before 'the door of  Brynncourt Mansions, the girl looked  up to the lighted windows ns she might  have looked for a star.  Her mother knew' the time when she  was to be expected back from the theater to the moment, and never missed  hearing the. roll of the cab-wheels, the  clatter of the horse's feet ln stopping  at the pavement. By the time that  Winifred was half-way up the third  and last flight of stairs, the door of  the flat was open, and the little mother  smiling in the light that streamed out  to gladden "Winnie's" eyes.  To-night, It seemed a bad omen to  the girl that the drawing-room windows with .their red silk shades should  glow (but faintly, and tho door be shut.  The maid had the latchkey in the tiny  black bag which contained her mistress's few bits of jewelry, and used it  for,: almost! the first; time since the flat  had been home to the young actress.  CHACTER  VII.  In Twos and Threes.  j /Winifred ran quickly in, leaving her  maid to fasten the door of.the flat, and  It was a;great relief to see ihor mother's small, thin figure appear at the  drawing-room door.  "Winnie, darling, I didn't know you'd  come. I'm so sorry," cried the voice  that had always been lo Winifred the  sweetest In the, world. "I heard a cab,  but it' was like a jingling hansom. I  was sure it wasn't .yours."  This was explanation enough; but  the girl's sensitive ears detected something unusual in the tone���������a kind of  deadness, as if all the joy notes had  been struck out of it.  "I came in a hansom to-night." If  Winifred's heart had not been heavy-  she would have added a curiosity-  piquing word about her adventure, but  (except for her knight-errant, whose  dark face she had not been able to  put out of her mind all the way home)  the affair appeared pitifully .trivial beside the other overwhelming occurrence of the evening. Of this she had  meant to speak,'toiling her mother all  that Macalre had said and ali that sha-  nad said in answer; but the change in  :he  dear voice  frightened her.    First,  know whait "had" been' happening at  home.      . *, .'- ,  She .put her arm round the. little  woman's frail shoulders and drew her  Into .the drawing-room. "Are you feeling worse, dearest?"'she asked, tenderly, her eyes on the face, which was  of so pure, and transparent a pallor  that tt often reminded the girl of alabaster, through which light "shon?  clearly. " ' ",   ���������  "Not quite so well as sometimes, perhaps,, but nothing for you to w.orry  about," the answer came soothingly.  "What do you think is in_that ohaflng-  dish for you ��������� to-night, .pet?. Only  guess!"  Winifred's eyes .turned to the wide  doorway which opened " between the  small drawing-room and still smaller  dining-room. There, on the table, stood  the smart.silver chafing-dish in which  some dainty was always prepared by  heri mother's bwn.han&s-for. her homecoming.. The one servant was sent to  bed early, and it was Mrs. Gray'e pride  and pleasure to devise something which  might tempt the appetite of the tired  little actress after the theater.  The    lace-edged^ tray-cloth,    spread  ~wlth"~a~few-p"retty~plates"~and~blts-of  glass and silver, looked- oddly pathetic  to Winifred  to-night,  and  a sensation  of choking contracted rher;throat.'  "I can't eue������3, and I can't ������at, mother-kin," she said, "until you tell me  '���������what Is wrong. There's something, I  know."  "I���������couldn't you wait for all that url-  til you've had your supper, - dear?"  pleaded Mrs. "Gray. "I've taken such  pains with* it.:; It's sweetbreads," dons  in a new way. And there's a steaming  hot cup of chocolate���������for the night  seemed so chilly."  Winifred shivered slightly, but-" not  with cold. ��������� Lionel Macalte had made  :.hor drink chocolate. . She thought that  jWie could never bear to touch it again,  but '."still less could ehe grieve her  mother. So she took off her hat and  gloves and sat down at the table, trying to smile,.'.'"praising the sweetbreads,  and reluctantly sipping the chocolate,  while the welghtof presentiment .was  coldly heavy on-her breast. The worst  of this .night was not over7 yet, something seemed te whisper in her ear.  She must at least make a pretense; of  eating now, if she /would show appreciation of the little mother's; thought  for her. By-and-by even that pretense  would be, impossible.  The lump in her throat made it hard  to swallow, and a mist of tears dimmed  her eyes, but she would not let-them  fall. She and her best'ioved one;had  been eo happy, so merry, "In tliis little  place. Why need she feel that, lt was  all going to end to-night? It was stupid to ' feel that���������yet the impression  weuld not pass.  When/she could make an end of the  feast without seeming ungrateful she  sprang up and pushed away her chair.  Mrs. Gray had sat .watahing the. girl  wi th great; love and a tireless, yearning admiration in her eyes as her frail  body leant again������t the cu6hions in; a  grandfather chair, by the fireplace.  Though October had not come yet,  there was a glow of dying fire In the  grate���������just enough to give an excuse  for drawing neax it, and Winifred  knelt town *������n the rug, with her arms  across her mother's knees.  "N-ww, **e* fs It, dear?" She asked,  brav������*y.  "v wish I needn't tell: you,"; ulie e'.-er  woman answered,, a quiver In her  voice.  "You and I have always borne* everything together,, havenlt' we?." Aud so  wo al-wnys will!'"  "Oh, darling, Uiere've been troubles  enough In your young life. I did hope  they were over.. But Heaven knows  best."  "Aren't you going to- tell mc!" -  ."Since.';. I must���������yes. It couldn't be  kept i'rom you. Strange, Isn't it, love,  how I roubles, como so .of ten', in twos  nnd threes,, not: singly?,"  Winifred, looked up.,, in to her mother's  eyes. On the surface oil. her thoughts  swnm tihe consciousness.', of..^what had  happened ������L thetheater,viffi;d;tlie vague  tear 'of what It might mean in the future. 'I'hIs was to bo a night to remember. She longed, yet dreaded lo have  the knowledge that lay 'behind those  ioVlnyeyeis..* ..'���������/..  CHAI-'TUR VIII.  'Xhe Letter from Sloane Street.  '.'"Ii Ish life' has stopped," snid Mr.i.  Cray;; "and nil the money you put l.ito  It for poor Dick Is lost. Nearly two  hundred pounds, dear."  "Dick" was Winifred's only brother,  .x year older than she; and "lrli>li 1,1 tu"  was a paper started in Dublin'eniiy In  the summer, of which Dick Gray had  been made sub-editor because of Uie  money his sister had optimistically lent  him for the purchase of certain shares.  It had been put In by degrees, as it  :ould be spnred from her salary of  twelve pounds a week, which had begun about the first of Maroh, and the  full amount required had been sent off  only a month ago. Meanwhile, for  Dick's sake, the girl and her mo ther  had been living with the utmost economy, and making Sacrifices with unflagging, cheerfulness, if or, the prospects; of  the new paper had been7repress!!ted as  marvelously bright, and it*had certainly, .seemed, a. wonderful ��������� .chance,.::, for  Dick, whoso gifts, if any, weie for a  journalistic career.  Now the money was. gone, and poor  Dick 'would be "out of a berth," as he  had, dolefully reminded hi.s: mother in  the letter whloh lold the bad news.  There had been trickery somewhere,  for if the paper was in danger of dissolution .the last payments should not  have been accepted; but the excuses  were very plausible, and /Dick did: not  think that he would be able to geta  penny back again.  On any other night this blow would  have fallen with; comparative lightness  upon Winifred, who had all the huoy-  ant hopefulness of her twenty years;  but bravely as she had flung back  Lionel Macaire's insults, his threats  had frightened her. His money and  his well-known Interest in theatrical  affairs gave him infinite power in the  world in -which she moved, and though  she diid not exactly see how he could  use lt to hurt her, at all events In the  present, there might be ways; and the  solid foundation which a good, engagement gave her seemed trembling under  her feet as she reassured her mother.  "What's two hundred pounds, after  all?" she laughed brightly. "With  twelve pounds coming ln every week,  money soon counts up; and I'm getting to know a lot of newspaper men  now, wlho are all" very kind to me; and  perhaps through, them  something  will  be found for Dick In London, which  would, be'better than" Ireland. And  even though this money's gone, it's  not all wasted, for Dick bought his ex-  'perlence. Oh,. while there's , nothing  worse than this, dear, you mustn't "look  so pale and heart-broken!"  "There Is���������something else, Winnie,"  faltered Mrs. Gray. "Not worse���������oh,  not worse! ' Still, I'm afraid it will  grieve'you to hear it."  For a' moment Winifred; had forgotten her mother's hint that "troubles  came in twos and threes," Her heart  grew cold again.  "It's - only about me," .went on the  elder woman, almost apologetically.  "You know you made me promise that  I'd see a doctor about myself, and I  said that I iwould when I: could screw  up my courage. I -wrote to Sir Digby  Field asking for an appointment, and,  It came for to-day at three o'clock. I  was glad that lt was Wednesday, and  matinee day, for then you need not  know anything about it till It was  over. You were not coming home to  dinner, and I hoped that when I saw  you at night after the theater I should  have-somethlng-reassuring-to-tell-you.-  But, darling���������I haven't. It's the other  way.".  "Mother!" cried Winifred, her face  stricken white, her voloe sharp with  fear. She wound her arms tightly, round  the slender waist, holding the frail little : figure as if with: her- own'young  body ������he would defend It against all  har hi.  "DonU look like that, darling!" her  mother Implored. "Sir Digby didn't  say,I.must���������die. He only told me that  I/.was in danger, and that, If, my life  were to be saved, I must undergo a  eeiious operation. Not at once, but I  should' not wait" longer than two or  throe months. -After that; It might be  ���������loo late l"  -  "Would., lt" be a dangerous operation?" the girl usked, breathlessly.  "A little. "'It. must always be so with  such'linings, I fancy. But ltis tihe expense I am thinking of, Winnie. J  didn't know when I isawi Sir Digby  about "Irish Xilfe' and poor Dick. But  when'I came home, feeling somewhai  upset, there was the letter waiting foi  me.   It seemed almost too much."  Winifred pressed her lips tightly to  gether over her own secret, as it li  hide it under lock and key, lest I  should betray Itself. She had quite re  :so*ved.now that she would say nothing to make her mother's burdei  heavier, unless circumstances forco  her later on to speak.  "Don't .w������rry, about the ; money  mother-kin. "It will be all right, you'.  see," she said. "And when you're/we!  again���������as you will be;soon���������bow happ  we shall feel."  "I, asked Sir Digby how much !  would all cost," sighed the little wc  man; "and he eald it wouldn't be eat  tocalculate upon; less than two hur.  dred pounds. Fer I shall have to be'  long time at a nursing home. I don'  see how we can manage it."  "Nonsense!" cried Winifred. "Not _  ing easier. Money Isn't what it used I  be to us when I, poor little wretch  thought I was lucky to get thre  pounds e. week on tour."  "Anfl.you lived on one, and ecnt twr.  to Dick and me!"  "I never wanted more, dear. You'v  no idea ho*w passing rich a girl oan bi  es twrfity shillings a week touring Is  cue country, If she dliums with another girl, as I did.   Oh, there was plenty  |  of  fun in .'those  days:    I like to  look  back on them!"  As she looked back now, thoy seemed  delightfully free from care. There had  heen no horrible millionaires then, ottering.her champagne and many other  tilings ���������which she could not take.  Somehow she comforted her mother,  undressing her and putting her to bed  as if she had been a child���������Cor Jameson was never permitted to sit up for  any ministrations after the theater.  Mother and daughter preferred then to  ���������help each other, and have their two  small 'connecting bedrooms to themselves.  Biit Winifred herself did not sleep.  All the pent-up grief which she had  not allowed to be seen, at thought of  the suffering and danger from, which,  at best, she could not save her adored  mother, broke over her In a wave. She  burled her burning face in the pillow,  quivering ns if under the strokes of  a lash, though no tears came. Whatever happened, she must have money.  There must be something for poor  Dick,: who seemed always so unlucky,  even when hopes had been highest;  and, nibovc all, the little mother must  be cared for as it she were a queen.  Nothing must be lacking���������nothing.  Usually, when AVinlfred went to bod,  she had only to close her eyelids to  fall asleep, not to .wake until Jameson  knocked in the morning and threw  back the heavily-lined blue curtains  that kept the early light from pouring  In at the open window. But to-night  she lay listening feverishly to the  quarter-hour3 as they iwere isolemnly  struck by St. Mary's Church clock,  wondering if she would still be awake  to hear, the next.  She invariably did hear the next, and  the next. And so morning came. Her  habit: was not to rise till nine, as it  was we'll, her mother said, for young  people who worked hard to have plenty of sleep. When it was half-past  seven/however, she could bear to lie  In bed no longer, and she had bathed  and dressed without w-aking herimoth-  er-in the next room,'before It was time  for the maid to come to; her door.  Already; tlie letters had, arrived and  were waiting on a; table: ln the drawing-room: un'til; it*7.should' be time for  Jameson to carry them to Mrs. Gray  and her daughter. On top was an envelope addressed In Mr. Anderson's  handwriting,/and;theigirl's heart gave,  a leap as she caught sight of it.  Ho had written to her, on:several occasions, about:,the time when heri, engagement in his company .was pending,  but never .since.  She took up tity* letter with a hand  that was not quite steady, and saw  trom the smart crest and monogram  Dn the envelope that it was the paper  which he: used at home.; He must have  written to her immediately on arriving at his house in Sloane street, after  the theater last night.  A Vision of him leaving the stage entrance with Ulonel Macalre, and driving away ln the tatter's carriage, when  Doth had bowed with' elaborate formality to her, flashed into her head,  rladithe millionaire's revenge already  Degun by prejudicing the manager's  ���������nind against her? Surely Mr. Anderson would not be so unfair to    But  ihe would not wait lo finish the question.    She tore open  the envelope.  "Dear Miss Gray," said the actor-  manager, "will you come to the theater  to-morrow (Thursday) morning, and  ask for me half-an-hour before the  timo for rehearsal? Yours truly.  George Anderson."  There was nothing very alarming on  the surface of this brief note, "with the  zequest which might have been made  "for one out of a dozen harmless Tea-  sons. But instinct that had brought  the dark cloud of brooding presentiment last night, spoke again gloomily.  The rehearsals for "A's You Like It,"  which had begun about a week ago,  were. called for "eleven sharp" every  day. Therefore the appointment which  Mr. Anderson wished Winifred to keep  was at, half-past ten.  They had sat talking together, the  gill and her mother, later than usual,  and Mrs. Gray, who often suffered at  night, and was a restless sleeper, was  making up this morning for .the hours  she had lost. iWlnlfred never allowed  her to be calleduntilsheawoke of her  ; own accord, and though this was generally early, to-day Winifred had her  breakfast and went away without seeing her mother.. She left a short note  "fuirof'lbve. 6aylng only that she waa  obliged to gx) down to the theater half  an hour earlier than she had expected.  When the girl had first called upon  Mr. Anderson at his request, a little  unknown actress from* the provinces,  she had felt almost sick with excitement lest something sljouli} go wrpnj  at the' laiet, and she should lose "the  glorious chance *e had been led to expect. She remembered that day ana  its sensations/with painful distinctness  this morning, but now her emotion/was  even;more keen than it had been" then.  The actor-mannger had^an ."office" at  the theater, where lie Imagined that be  transacted a great deal of busine.73,  and did indeed spend some hours of  most days In the Week. Winifred knew  that she would* be received there; and,  when'she had 6ont up ,word that she*  had arrived and would wait Mr. Anderson's convenience, ehe furtively  pinched hor cheeks to counteract the  pallor ahe had seen In passing a mirror. Whatever might be in store for  her, she did not wish to betray the  fact that she was frightened.  In five or ten minutes Mr. Anderson's  young secretary came to fetch Miss  Gray to the office, and at the door of  that*room he disappeared. The interview was to be a strictly private one.  The actor-manager sat at his desk,  ^glancing over the correspondence which  his-secretary had placed ready for him.  As Winifred was announced, he rose  slowly, lootfng formidably large and  impressive. His eyes were as dre-imy  fts ever, but it seemed to the girl���������or  she imagined it��������� that they were  .slightly restless, not willing to meet  and dwell upon hers with the caressing, lingering gaze which -was a characteristic of his m greeting a pretty  woman. For <bnce he appeared lil at  ease; Mn voice hctrayed a certain agitation, as the voice of a sensitive or  cowardly person wiii when something  disagreeable has to be done.  tile gave AVinlfred a chair., and sat  down again himself, looking at a curi-  oub ring* he wore, and talking etout  the weather.

Miology for thc author's own philosophy^  st life," which is a sort of nco:paganism.:  The plot of the novel may be briefly  summarized ins follows:  Wildman, a novelist residing in Port-  monde, an unprogresslve Belgian city,  has excited tlie : hostility of his : townsmen by the ideas and methods of his lit-  srary work. He is a neo-Hcllenist; ho  shares the ancient Greek conception of  harmonious development of body and  mind; he believes in the purity of nature  and the essential chastity of passion.  He does not believe that the flesh is nt  war with the spirit and needs mortification and resistance. He holds tbis doctrine of the sinfulness of the body to be  unnatural, blasphemous and superstitious, and he delights in the simple, natural, rude, but healthy, life of tlie plain,  people, attached to the soil and uficon-,  iciouslr realizing their ���������neness with uni-'  rersal life.  Wildman ib engaged In writing a noj  vei describing the gradual evolution off  human ideals, the decline of the present  conception of  duty  and  morality,   and.  the return, in a modified form, to  th*  religion of nature.   He pictures the pasa-,  Ing of mankind into terra libra where!  thc will to live and the joy of life ar*'  the   ruling   principles   of- conduct,   an4'  self-abnegation ha3 ceaaed to be a virtueJ  Wildman's  open  assault on  the  Chrta-j   ,  tian religion and its moral code are re-|  'ented by his fellow-citizens, nnd he finds  liim=elf isolated, socially ostracized.

He is wounded to'the quick byj .  this charge, for he protests that not ai *  line or word of his book is open to thi  charge of immorality.    He becomes de-i,  Epondent  and  discouraged,  though   thai.  authors of Belgium and France send hfaa  messages of sympathy and appreciation.*."

THUltSDAY,  N'oVKMHIill  20.  1002.  Liberal Tribute to Mr. Borden.  The- "Winnipeg Tribune, one of the  Liberal journals in Canada lo remember unci support the best trartilioiih of  the party, pays Mv. R. L. Uorileii. ibe  Conservative leader. :t liigli tribute,  and incidentally denounces lion. Clif-  fprd Sifton as a political traitor. Ina  recent issue il said, editorially :  "Asked at Morden wliatlicn he was  in favor of increa.-iiig the tariil' on  agricultural implement*. Mr. Borden  replied tlint be believed Uie duly was  high enough now. XVa should say il  was. The incident, however, is instructive, because it lias led Mr.  Sifton's organ to repeal on behalf of  the Liberal party, that the present  tariff on these articles'is all right as  it is.* The Manitoba farmer is now in  a position to see exactly what tlio  difference is. so far as regards that  portion of the tariff which most concerns his pocket, between lhe high  protection .of the Conservatives and  what Mr. Sifton, in his efforts to  humbug lhe electors, terms a revenue  tariff. The Conservatives believe the  duty is high enough: and the Liberals  hold that the-present tariff on these  articles is all right as it is."  '���������So far at least as agricultural implements are concerned, it appeals  that ihe Liberal policy is at leasL as  protectionist as thai of the Conservatives. The chief difference appears  to be that Mr. Borden is frank and  honest enough to describe himself ns  the supporter and advocate of protectionist duties, while iMr. Sifton dis-  honc-silv attempts to humbug the  people'by telling them that protection*  Ni duties aie revenue tariff duties.

Miss Alva Davenport left Vanccniver  as a result of a  promise she gave  to  police detectives, who called upon her  to convey the  wishes of Chief Noith  ft-  regarding the length of her stay  in  Vancouver.  Miss Davenport represented herself  a<i a healer and was doing a big business in a practice in the art of  recovering health for other people,  with her headquarters at the Leland  Hotel.  The chief decided that the evidence  be had in hand regarding the conduct  of her business by Miss Davenport  warranted his interference. He  accordingly sent detectives to urge  her to leave the city if she wished to  avoid a charge which he proposed  laying against her.  " Miss Davenport has left the city  for a few days," was the reply given  to a query at the Leland this morning,  and it ,was. impossible to obtain any  information of whether she contemplated to return or not.  ' "I decided that we had no use for  this kind of a healing business in  Vancouver," said, the chief. "We  have sufficient evidence to bring a  charge of fraud against her, and if she  does not carry out her promise to quit  that' business and leave the city, we  will certainly have her in court,  "Her own .advertisement shows  ;-that her system was'a--fraud. She  gives no treatment, gives preliminary  advice for nothing,-and if a. person  becomes her patient she 'charges1 him  $10 in advance.  "We sent a woman there to become  her.patient'and-secure the evidence  we required. The woman' told Miss  .Davenport that sbe suffered 'from a  certain complaint, which, by the way,  was exactly the reverse of the fact^  and the woman healer immediately  replied. ".Why, certainly, 1 knew the  moment I saw you that that was what  was the matter.' They talked about  , thotouise; ot: treatment," which '-consisted in the healer passing her -hands  over the woman and praying for'her.  She gave no medicine, but"said 'she  wanted- $10 before doing anything.  -She told our patient'that it would  -take sixty days to cure her; .that she,  the healer, "would pray for her after  sbe left the city, and "that;would-be  just as good as .if she remained in  Vancouver all the time.  "Besides this - information which  showed' the real 'character" of the  proposition, we had other information that the lady would have had a  hard- time to get over. She advertised that a large number of people  had been 'cured in' Victoria by her  and gave a long list of twenty or  thirty names. We learned from -the  o-Chief-of-EoliceiinJVictoriaithatj-none.  of these people were resident.there. .  " I also received information' about  her visit to Nelson, and the same  names as are quoted as being of those  persons cured inuVictoria, were given  inthe Interior.City, I aoi told, as the  names of persons who had been cured  in Vancouver."'." .i."-  . It is said that Miss Davenport did an  immense business in Vancouver." Her  rooms at the hotel wero crowded  every afternoon, and scores of people  paid their ten spots and went away  on the road to cure.  Miss Davenport is rather a prepossessing woman of 28 or 30 years of  age, and was accompanied here bylier  brother, who appeared to act in a'sort  of managerial capacity He is said to  be still in the city.���������Vancouver  Province.

Dated this 20th dav of September, 1902.  The I. O. F.  The Independent Order of Foresters  are inaugurating :i vigorous winter  campaign, and for the months of  November, December and January  are remitting to ne.w members the  registration and certificate tees, wliich  applicants usually have to pay upon  joining. The order has made wonderful strides during' tho year, and will  add to its membership many thousands during the next three months.  Its membership roll now contains a  good deal over 200,000 of insured .or  beneficiary members. Its accumulated  funds reach  to $0,000,000; and   these  funds  are increasing at the   rate of  three'quarters of a million .dollars a  year, notwithstanding that the order  pays out $500 every working hour in  the year to widows and orphans. A  record of over $12,000,000 already paid  promptly on death claims stands to its  credit. The I. O. F. is undoubtedly a  great and progressive institution.  The report upon its investments made  by a committee composed of able and  independent brethren at the Supreme  Court meeting in Los Angeles, stated  that in all investments of its funds the  Executive had never lost a dollar.  This is certainlv a unique experience.  C. H. E. Rest, A. I.

Lsngton Clarke.  i T was on bo.ird a Cun-  arder, bound from  New York to Liverpool, that I first met  the man who was responsible for what has  certainly been the  most remarkable Incident in my experience.  I was returning from  a holiday In the  United -States to resume my duties about  lhe person ot a certain royal personage,  and as the New Tork  "* papers   had    given   n  good deal ot prominence to my goings  ani comings, my identity v.'as pretty  tern-rally, known to my fellow-passengers. Among them was a tall, thin  mar,, who on the third dny out Intro-  tut.- i himself as Mr. Amos Hanchard  or Vhcmasville, Illinois.  "A ritiuin of the United Stoics, sir,"  he said, as.he shook me warml.' byth������  hand, -'but. of good old British stock,  sir, a::d maybe, if the truth were  known, more of a Britisher at heart  tha:i yourself, as you might think, sir,  tf yoa knew my errand across this little pond."  I evinced a polite interest, but did  Dot seek to prolong the Interview, and  tt is probable that our acquaintance  would have remained on the same distant footing but for an' incident which  occurred late that night. I was pacing the deck, preparatory to turning  In, when I met Mr. Hanchard staggering towards the companion. He was  evidently suffering extreme agony, and  t could do no less than offer him my  ferm.  ."Neuralgia of the optic nerve," he  Basp^d. as I assisted him to his cabin.  *"It's hell upon earth, sir, till I can get  Ht my medicine."  I would have hastened for the doctor,  but lie assured me it was unnecessary,  as lie never traveled without an opiate,  and at hi3 express desire  I left him to  ; prepare his own remedy.  He was late in putting in an appearance t.?-:: day. and his eyes were  heavy with the effects of the ^rug  which hi had taken. He thanked me  heartily for the assistance which I had  .: ren.icred him, and informed me that he  was subject ; to neuralgic attacks of  ".' such extreme icvertty that he was at  times hardly responsible for, hia actions. V."e became fairly intimate, and  t found him; an agreeable conversationalist, a shrewd judge of human  nature, and Insatiable in his thirst for  Information. Ha was particularly interested In English court life, and catechised; me thoroughly as to the customs  and appearance of princes and princesses, and "my own duties about the  person of my royal master.  "Will you step Into my stateroom.  I've get something there that I'd like  real well to show you," he Bald on the  evening of the afth day. "I think you  ���������might be able to do me a good turn."  I followed him into his cabin,  and the firsl thing he did was to produce a newspaper from his trunk. It  ���������was a copy of the Thomasville'"Courier" of a comparatively recent date,  and Jfr. Hanchard, standing with one  hand on my shoulder, smilingly Indicated a paragraph which he "desired  me t" read. It was headed, "A Gift to  Hoyulty." and described a meeting of  the "Prince. Of Scotland Club," at  .-which it,had been decided to present a  cuitaMe gift to my royal master on thc  .occasion of his birthday. *  Th; paragraph concluded by stating  that "M?. Amos Hanchard, president  of tis club, who is shortly leaving for  the Old Country on private business,  was deputed to make the presentation  In person."  "ilost  of  our  club   are   Britishers."  Bald   Mr.   Hanchard,    in    explanation  but taey though!, thn thing would have  more An='.'<.^axon.A.,U;xnce frliis on it  '     .\ native-born American did the presenting.*' See?"  '.The Prince will be deeply gratified,"  I said, as Mr. Hanchard stood ibeam-  lng.  "Hold, on a moment," he said. "I  faaven't shown you the thing I'm taking.' I guess you'll admit it's a hummer."  ���������He dived to the bottom of his trunk  ���������&n.3-prvK:-uced-an-ob!ong_C3se_ot_dark  green morocco leather, embossed with  my mister's crest. Opening this he  extracted a small gold traveling clock,  of exquisite beauty in workmanship  and "design. The crest was outlined In  brilliants on both sides, and on the  back was the following inscription:  Presented  to  .       THE PRINCE OF SCOTLAND  ������>n the Occasion of his 50th Birthday,  By the  Prince  of  Scotland  Club  of  Thomasville. III.  I exr/mined It with an admiration  "which I freely expressed. "Ain't she a  beauty?" asked Mr. Hanchard. rapturously. "But you haven't seen the  best of her yet. The Prince-was born  at eleven o'clock, wasn't he? ..."Well,  look here." He turned a couple of  keys erxii ������et th<> hanis at the hour he  bad ncmed. tnimeillutoly, from a tiny  eet of bells, concealed within the  works, the British National Anthem  chimed forth, followed by the whirring  of wheels and a little click.  "That's what I call a neat compliment." he said.'"and all my own idea.  I tell you It's made'me solid for the  presidency next year. They wero  tickled tn death with it."  "An-! ���������uvr." he continued, taking the  clock from my hands and putting it  away again, "I want you to do me a  favor. The Prince's birthday is the  flay after to-morrow. Do you think  you can work me an Interview with  His P.oyal Highness?"'  "I think that under the peculiar circumstances it might be easily managed." I replied.  "If there should be any difficulty," he  suggested, "maybe you wouldn't mind  taking chnrpe of the thing yourself.  and seeing tlint His P.oyal Highness  receives It at the right time. I'm  pledged to get It into his hands on his  birthday, and cable the club at its anniversary meeting that nistit. It'd kind  of be a disappointment all round If the  Prince and the tim.-piece failed to connect on the right day and at the right  "I mav safely p *m!se you that he  shall receive it either from your hands  pr mine," I replied, and Mr. Hanchard  From Liverpool to London Mr.  Hanchard and I traveled together, and  at hts earnest request I consented to  postpone my return to niy own quarters at the Palace until the following  morning, and remain as his guest at a  small hotel, which he assured me was  a favorite stopping-place with tourists  from Thomasville.  During the evening my companion  evinced symptoms of nervousness, and  several times expressed a doubt as lo  whether he'would be able to summon  sufficient courage to face royalty. "I'll  make a moss of it sure," lie said. "I  suoss I'll have to let you do the presenting after all."  I did by best tn reassure him, 'out  the question was eventually settled in  a manner neither ot us had foreseen.  'While ascending the stairs lo his bedroom Mi'. Hanchard slipped, nnd gave  his ankle a wrench so severe as seemed  to preclude the possibility of his putting his foot to the ground for several  da yd.  He accepted tht* misfortune with  Philosophical composure, ami 1 assured  him that he need be under no apprehension with regard lo tlie timely delivery of his chiming clock, as I would  willingly undertake it, the more so as  ho was now physically incapacitated  from making the presentation in person.  "I guess it's not going to make a  deal of difference after all, then," he  said. "And now," he added,. "It you'll  be so kind as to give me the black  handbag you'll find In the top of that  trunk,. I'H-.Just get her fixed up, so  that she'll reel off her tune all right at  eleven o'clock to-morrow, when you  hand her over."'  I obeyed his instructions, and then,  at his request, went to my own room  for a silk handkerchief, with which.he  wished to put a final polish on. the  case. When I returned he was silting  up in bed, regarding the clock with a  look of affection.  VI hate to part With her, and that's  the plumb truth," he said. "It'.s too  bad as il can't be somewhere around to  hear her say her little piece." He took  the handkerchief I. had brought.and  carefully wiped the crystal and the Inscription.  "She's aU ready for business now," ho  said, handing the clock to me. "Put  her back in the bag and take her with  you, 'and be.mighty,;cm-efnl you don't  Jar her,,,for-them ' works ,;i.s easy pul  out'of gear."  "I think I'll let you take the responsibility until to-morrow," I replied.  "I'll leave this bag in some safe place  in your room for the night, **nd get it  In the morning." I picked up Mr.  Hanchard's walking-stick and with lt  pushed the bag with Its precious' contents well underneath his bed. and  atter again ��������� pledging my word mat  the Prince should receive the gift ln  time to judge of its musical capabilities, bade my companion good-night  and departed.  When I entered Mr. Hanchard's room  In: the morning *T found him sleeping  heavily, a small bott'.e,: labeled "chloral," stood on the table ft his bedside,  and I came to the conclusion that he  had been" seized during the night with  one of his neuralgic attacks. On the  floor at the head of the hed was the  black hag. I .picked- it up wlihout  awakening the sleeper, nnd a few minutes -later was driving: to the palace.  My time was fuily taken up wilh receiving greetings ancl replying to the  enquiries of my friends, and it was not  till half-past ten that.I remembered  my promise to Mr, Hanchard. I went  at once. to. my; room, where-T had left  the precious,bag, but to my consternation, when I opened it I discovered  that I had ibrought away the wronjr  one. :The error was easily explained.  The bag which I held'in my hand was  almost an exact coun'ci pa>. t. of that  which contained the presentation clock.  It was fitted up as a porlable medicine chest, and one vacant pocket was  evidently intended for the chloral bottle,which I had seen on the table at  Mr. Hanchard's bedside. '��������� There: was  nothing for it but to rush back to the  hotel and rectify the mistake as soon  as possible.  ��������� An accident to the hansom ..which  conveyed me delayed my journey somewhat,' and'it was almost on the stroke  of eleven when I entered, Mr. Hanchard's bedroom. He was sitting up ln  b"e"d~wat"ch"in~hand:���������He'-had-evidently���������j  Just awakened, and seemed still drowsy from the effects of the drug.  "Hell," he exclaimed, in a startled  tone, "what's brought you back? I  reckoned you'd ; be making that presentation about this time."  "I am deeply grieved at: the stupid  mistake I have made." I replied, "but  I took the wrong bag this morning,  and I have come back x for the right  one."  "My God!" cried Mr. Hanchard, his  face the color of the sheet. "Where la  the clock?"  "Where I left It, last night,": I said,  'under your bed. Listen! ��������� there,. 1!  qoes!"  As I spoke the muffled notes of the  clock, chiming the National Anthem  came to our ears.  I pray that I may never again enf  such an agony of t-rror depleted or  any human countenance.  Mr. Hanchard uttered a frightful  yell and rose up in bed. Unutterably  astonished, I started hack and, tripping over a low footstool, fell heavily.  Th-.- fall probibly saved my llf<*.- Aa  t went down a glare' of blinding llgiil  filled the room, there came a deafening  roar, the side of the room next the b^i)  was swept away like papir, and ther.  everything grew black before me tntV  I sank Into ���������unconsciousness.  -Severn! rin/H clapped before I regained my senses and was able to realize how narrow had been my escape,  not only from losing my life, but from  becoming the successful tool of a devilish conspiracy. The Inner, story ,ol  the chiming clock was not at the time  rf-vnalcd to the publl.', but wus kept n  profound secret as between my royal  master, one or two Scotland Yard de-  tcctives.'aml myself.  Enquiries discreetly made on the uth-  ':r slrle cf the Atlantic showed' that  ihoie was no .vueh otgini/.ation as *_  ���������Prince of Scotland Club In Thomas-'"  ville, and that the copy of the p'ipor by,  which I had been first misled was .>ii-  llrely spurious.  The Identity of the man who called  himself Amos IIari.:liard was "nnver  discovered. Tiie force of tbe explosion  had mutilated him beyond all recognition, and In hl/< stormier trunk, whl.:Ti  was only partially destroyed,  nothing  was found that offered any .clue.  Whether he was an anarchist crank,  working for his own hand,'or the emissary or. soma "physical force" organization,  is still  a  mystery.  There: was llttlo doubt that he had  selected me from the first as a tool  especially adapted to his purpose, and  that the sprained ankle was merely &  pretense to ensure the delivery of his  infernal clock by my hands.

Captain Foot  was personally in charge, and he was  very solicitous 'to s������.c that everybody  had* a chance to see the fine ship and  partake ofthe good things. He was  most ably assisted by Agent Dunn, Mr.  Pum'phre'y and every member of the  crow. They were all'just as polite and  attentive as though those aboard had  Paid their hard cash to be taken care  of.  It would be difficult to give1 an accur-.  .ite description of the vessel and her  appointments without going into the  minutest details. The ship's exterior  is well remembered by many Skag-  wayans, but the interior has- been so  completely changed that It was absolutely unrecognizible yesterday. The  fittings are most elaborate and the decorations are all ot artistic merit and  present a harmony of view which is  indescribably grand.  The dining saloon is exceptionally-j  large for a ship of the proportions of  the Islander. Its finish could scarcely  be finer it w"ould seem. The furnishings of the ladies' cabin, the lounging  room and other p^.rts are of the finest.  ~One~b"f~th'e~attr3etJon3--\v'nIc������v-i*3^!w<5.y.s-  looked for by the sea traveler'��������� Is...a  chance to promenade.

From main truck to  kieison, from stem to stern, the ship 'is  kept scrupulously dean. Ae many  wended their way up town after viewing the vessel and enjoying the hospitality of Captain Foot, they wer-e constrained to say she was the finest vj'i-  sel with the most popular skipper on  the run.

But  his .most novel device is placing tho  screw under the bottom of Uie vessel instead of at the stern. Not only will  such a ship Tie particularly seaworthy,  says the inventor,, but, with the same  speed, it will save 20 per cent, in consumption of coal.  A new form of litter*for carrying tho  wounded lias been devised hy Mrs. Ohad-  . wick, wife of Uie captain who commanded the llagship "New York" in the Spanish war. It is a simple arrangement of  Btraps and slings supporting a broad  canvas scat, and weigh? only three and  a half pounds. The New York "Sun"  Bays of this invention: "It is no small  thing for a woman to have solved the  problem which lias puzzled army officers  nnd surgeons the world over. The litter  for carry ing the wounded wliich Mrs.  Cli '.vick has devised is being praised as  the simplest, "lightest and niost easily  carried device of Uio kind yet invented."  The Canadian Pacific Unil way Company are sending an electro-gasolene motor car to Hand', where it will be at the  disposal of tourists wlio wish to examine minutely the grand scenery of the  Canadian Kockios. Formerly visitors  had to occupy observation cars attached  as "trailers" to the regular express  trains. The car will be able to make little trips to Field, ete., and a'new pleasure is thus opened up by the enterprise  of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. There is accommodation for 14  : people on the car, and five gallons of the  gasolene enables it to run about 100  miles.  The state railway administration in  Prussia lias just settled upon a system  of electric lighting for trains which is  attracting much attention in "Germany.  Thc axle-driven dynamo having been  found objectionable been use it borrows  too much power from the locomotive,  and the system of storage-batteries being undesirable for otiier reasons, thc  plan adopted.is to place on the locomotive a steam-driven- dynamo, which supplies a current to a small regulating bat-  ;tery in each cur. Thus every car in u  vesUbuled train has a separate lighting  system fed from its own accumulator,  although the general supply comes from  the generator on the locomotive. ]5ach  car is provided with ceiling lamps and  reading lamps.  The recent outbreak, of volcanoes in  the Antilles gives peculiar interest to a  novel and rather startling theory propounded by the German geologists l'atil  and Fritz Sarasin. Says the Berlin "Gar-  tenlaube" (newspaper): "Many theories  have been proposed to account for the  glacial epoch���������or, rather, epochs ��������� but  none seems quite satisfactory. Now the  Sarasins have calculated that a reduction of the average annual temperature  by 7 degrees or 8 degrees F. would suffice  to produce all the phenomena of glacia-  tion0 Such a reduction, they hold, may  very well have been caused by volcanic  eruptions. In the unparalleled eruption'  of Kxakaloa in ]8tf4 immense quantities  of dust were lifted to a great height in  the air. This dust remained suspended  in the atmosphere for years, during  which it was the cause of singular sunset effects and nocturnal 'silver clouds'  observed in various parts of the world.  Now, if wc imagine the simultaneous  eruption of a great many volcanoes, it  is evident - that the dust and smoke  might'impede'7 the'..sun's", rays .'sufficiently  to bring about the small variation of  annual temperature mentioned. A pleasing corollary of this ingenious theory is  that, if wo accept it, wc must also accept the possibility of a new ico-age at  anv time."  Well Insured.

This class of horses is the most important branch of the equine family,  because it is used by the largest number of people, and the farm horse is employed in the production of that which  sustains the life of man as well as ot  most animals. Horses of this class must  be of good size, style and action in order to be valuable. The majority ot  farm horses are too small to be of tho  most value to their owners. It always  pays to raise the best grade of horses.  The market is never overstocked with  such horses. It takes no more grain to  keep a good horse than a poor one of  the same size. Many farmers loss a.  good deal of money 'by allowing their  horses to run down or by not keeping  Uieni strong and vigorous. Any farm  team will do more work on less feed if  fed regularly three times a day.  It is not what a horse eats but what  is thoroughly digested that gives vigorous life or increased flesh. Progessive  and intelligent horse owners ought to  give the horse the main attention.  Never buy a horso while in motion.  Watch him. stand still. If sound, lie  will stand firmly and squarely on his  limbs without moving, unless lie is vory  high-lifed. Very few horses have sufficient care given to the legs and feet.  Tliis is especially the case wilh farm  horses. Hours "are spent in brushing  the hair, mane, and (nil, but the legs  and feet are ncglecled.    t-  The raising of horses requires study  and the very best of practical judgment,  combined with common sense experience.  If you have not the required experience  you must absorb the best parts from the  experience of others and make a careful personal application to your own  animal and Ihe object you have in view.  A few make money by breeding trotters,  bul the surest plan is tn breed for large,  active, heavy draft horses.���������13x.  Soldlcrn nn Laborers.  The action of Sir George White in employing soldiers to take- the place of  thc Gibraltar coal-porters who were locked out by the Shipping Federation last  Milk as a Means of Suicide.  It is remarkable that so mild and in-  t'insieally harmless a beverage as  nifk should be so frequently chosen  as a menus of exit, into the oLhoi*  rorld. Yet at this 'summer season the  Bthnl efl'oets of milk seem to be much  mdcrruted. '".For example, wc read in  ���������he despatches front California that "a  iromincnt young man of Calaveras  bounty died here to-day as a. result ot"  lating cherries and drinking milk." This  B a slight variant from the usual com-  >ination.; Probably tho most deadly is  tickles and milk. Strawberries and milk-  ire only mildly toxic; with young and  lardy stomachs, they arc often partially  Ugebtcd; with older ones they 1 recently cause nothing more than eruc-  alivo dyspepsia, or, at worst, hives,  lottle-rash, urticaria, or ���������summer, com-  ilaint, therefore those ..who, nre fond of  .his: combination rarely abstain.', in the  ace of these comparatively trilling ail-  nenls.  Next to pickles and milk, probably the  host deadly form in which, the innocent  luid can be made to ligure is th������ cheap  cc cream combination. ; Despite the  toughness-'of juvenile viscera, milk in  .he ice cream form, if judiciously admin-  slcrcdi has been known to lay out in  ntcstinal kinks many scores of children  ,������n Sunday school picnics. With" their  dders, the combination is not infrequently fatal. Of course it requires  riuch care to make milk so deadly. In  [act, with careless mixing this kind of  |cc cream may be taken with compiiru tive  impunity, or only a slight illness. When  It is prepared with attention to the proper" septic and toxic conditions, however,  Inilk in this form may be looked upon  is practically certain death; it would be  invaluable' as an apparently innocent  (ncan3 of hurrying off rich uncles, tardy  ipinster mints, and other rich persons  H'ho linger superfluous on life's stage. In  its most potent form, when the innocent,  tnilk has become merely a culture-bed  'or billions of ice cream ptomaines, the  loctors call the mixture "tyro-toxicon."  riiis name is imposing and scientflic  tounding, and doubtless gives a certain  uhastcned satisfaction to tho . mourners  ���������much more than would plain milk.  To return to our original remark���������it  Is extraordinary what pains people tako  to render deadly this harmless beverage.  Even if the cow be sound, ��������� they will  sxpose tho milk to all manner of impurities���������including typhoid germs���������before  they put it inside of them. Even if it  be perfectly pure lhey take it at temperatures and under conditions that are  unwise, if not dangerous. To take a  jlass of milk by itself is a sensible proceeding; to take it on top of-a hearty  meal composed of proteids, carbo-hy-  Sratcs, and hydro-carbons, is most unwise; to take it with acids is tp woo  dyspepsia. Yet the latter method is the  one most preferred, for cream is used as  x\ mechanical lubricant with all manner  Df acid fruits.  As lo tempcratur. ���������in tho summer  season people prefer it ice cold, and some  lunatics even put ice into it. If they  ' take it at the temperature of the air,  without accompanying solid food, it is  probably speedily absorbed without going through the complex processes . of  jjastric and hepatic digestion. If, on the  other hand, it be tukon ice cold, it at  once congnlates and thc stubborn casein  In it sometimes requires hours for digestion; this la Iter is invariably the case  when it is accompanied with solid food.

A leading  Midland representative  of  thc Miners' Federation is quoted as saying : "If the Government persists, in its  war against the  trade unions it means  revolution.     Sir George AVhite haa used  thc soldiers to take the place of men on  sirike in Gibraltar.

The first-born of parents have a  much longer aveiage of life than their  brothers and sisters ^])0 come afi or  them.. This fact is demonstrated by statistics gathered by life insuiancc corn-  panics. Longevity is also -.'.id to bo  hereditary. Said an English insurance  man the other day:���������  "Some persons hn\e haidier constitutions than others, and they are apt  to transmit them to their children. A  man, both of whose parents were long-  lived, has a promise of a good old age  himself. This, of course, is an old  story. A much less familiar principle  afTecling lhc duiation of life has been  picscnted by Miss Maiy Bceton of  Cambridge and Professor Karl Pearson'  of London.  "A coinpaiison was made between the  lengths of thc lives of two adult brothers or two adult sisters to ascertain if  theie was n peiceptible difference between' the older and the younger niein-  beis of the pair. The (iguies here  given represent the aveiage of over one  thousand cases, and hence would seem  to point to a general law. It may he  added lhat thu jiailiculnr pel sons under  investigation belonged to the Society of  i'licnds. That oig.ini/..ition placed its  lccord at the disposal oi Miss Bceton  and Piofessor Peai.son.  It thus appeals that the aveiage ofthe elder bro'thcr was 5S.50 yeais, lhc  younger brother 54.373, the elder  Bister' 50.024," and the younger  sister, 55.007. There is a dilTcrciicc of  over four years in favor of the older  ''brother or sister. This does not signify that' the-older brotlier or sister  will suivive the younger. The mean interval belween . the births of all the  pairs under consideration was about six  and a half yeais. Hence the older  brother or sister would ordinarily die  first, though attaining a greater age.  "The first inquirv here mentioned was  limited to pairs, the younger members  of which had attained the age oi '21-  A second comparison wns made that included minors with adults. It gave results closely resembling the other. The  mean excess of life in 3.S55 pairs was  4.6 years. But the intervals between  the birth appear to "exert some influence. Miss Bceton and Professor Pearson furnish a formula by which one's  expectations can be computed, and add:  "Tints a brother born ten years before  another has probably seven years' gi eater duration of life. A sister bun ten  .years before another has probably about  Bix years' greater 4urali������"  of life."   ,  "Cnre-AIIs" Didn't Owe  Only a Kidney Specific of thc  genuine merit of _ South  American Kidney Cure can  ever hope to cope with insidious kidney diseases in all  its forms.

No mailer when the first indications of a storm make themselves*  felt in the atmosphere, whether it bo  niglit or day, summer or winter, the  faithful skin shows it by beginning to  sweat. If the sLoim passes off the  drops "dry up and the skin crisps and  shrivels until it is more like sandpaper  than anything else. In the winter, of  course, the sweat is not so profuse, because the air is drier than in summer.  "Why the snake skin should be so  sensitive to changes in atmospheric con-  dilipns I do not know. I have asked  expert snake handlers and students of  reptile life, but they were as much at a  loss as I was. I do, not know, either,  whether any skin but that of tho rattier  will yield to humidity or not. I know  that-the Florida, boatmen use the iat-  tleiJs skin exclusively "for their cabin  barometers. There's" something" grewsome and mysterious about it, I'll admit,  but it tells the truth as accurately as  the most expensive glass that was ever  ���������constructedj 'and all it cost me was-a  bullet fiom a rifle."

The Joys of Golf.  - Sarah Bnrtle commended whist above  all other games of cards, because it was  such' a "solid game," writes .D.  0. Campbell in "Scottish American." i Had sho known anything  about golf she . might have placed  it above all other outdoor sports, for the  selfsame reason. So solid indeed are the  joys of golf that they partake more' of.  the nature of substantial and enduring  benefits. The old alchemists. wasted a  great deal ,of time and money in 'voin  experiments to discover lite elixir of  life. A number of Spanish gentlemen,  headed by Ponce de Leon, went on a  fruitless quest tlirough Florida in the  hope of finding a fountain whoso waters  would repair the ravages of .time, and  rejuvenate the human , frame. . They  might have saved themselves a great  deal of trouble. The only'lrud elixir of  life is golf. It lengthens the span of  human life, and. preserves, as far as is  possible, one's health and strcnglh un-,  diminished; nay, it not only preserves  health but is pretty cerlain to restore  il. If you are weakly, "throw physic to  the dogs" and try golf. If it doesn't!  cure you youi case is a desperate one,  arid you might as well set about making  your-will.' lt is the greatest antidote to  the inroads of_Limc known to mankind.,?  The ingrcdiciiLs "of this elixir are  these: Sunshine, pure, air, ralioiiaL exercise devoid' of fatigue, rest of mind and  freedou^. f rom care, and veiy geifeially  fine sccrioiy, lo-sny nothing oi' the cx-  traoidinary fascination ol tho game. If  you .can beat these 1 should be veiy  much obliged to you for Lhe pioocriplion.  A friend of mine, who keeps soniu Turkish baths, lold nie that he could-always  tell the legul.ir bathers.

How Editors Get Rich.  After a great, di*al of study imi worry  we have at last "figgurert" out how so  many country editors get rich. Here is  the secret of their success. A child is  born in tho neighborhood; the attending physician gets $10. the editor gives  the loud lung youngster anil the happy  parents a st*nd off and gets $0. It is  christened and the minister gets $5  and the editor gets $00. It grows up  and marries; the editor publishes  another long winded flowery article  and tells a dozen lies about 'the lieu tit i*  ful and accomplished bi-idt*.' The  minister gets $10 and a piece of cake,  and the editor gets $000. In the course  of time it dies and the doctor gets  from $5 Lo $100. the minioter perhaps  gets another five, the undertaker gets  from $50 to $100, the edilnr publisher  notice of death and an obituary two  col urns long, lodge and society relations  a|lot of poetry and a free cat-dot' thanks  tnd gets $0000. No wonder so many  country editors get   rich.���������Exchange.  The Douks.  (Mr.   Speer'a   Men   hnve   successfully  vanquished the Doukhoburs.)

Human Fleas.  _ There is a' class of human beings,  inctud'ng both men and women, who  meddle in other people's business and  cause a great deal of trouble by whispering malicious lies about their  friends. Generally failures and incompetents themselves, these people take  personal offense at any of their  acquaintances who presume to do well  in the world or who achieve any honor  or distinction..  . Nearly everyone . has suffered at the  tongues of these meddlers and whisperers. They_ never permit any positive action to go without a few  spiteful criticisms. To this class belong the men who sit in a club window  and find fault with fellow members of  the management and tell derogatory  stories of their intimates. To the  same class belong the g������ntle maidens  who circulate mean little remarks  about othar girls. Along with these  must go the men wlio sneer at the  ambitions and ��������� failures of the men  about them. In short, the class takes  in everybody who gives way to envy  or spread lying stories, or meddles in  other people's business, or displays an  uncharitable dog-in-the-manger spirit.  There is no use arguing with people  of this class. They cannot help their  meanness. They were born with little  brains and tattling tongues, and they  will go on meddling and whispering  until the end of their lives. They aie  human fleas or mosquitoes, and their  business is to sting and bite like  vermin." But it may be of^orae use  to tell- men and women, tortured by  these pests, that they are suffei-ing  only what most persons suffer at some  time in life. '  Every man or woman that does any  positive act or gains any eminence  must take calumny an an ordu.ary  consequence. As sjon as a man raises  his head before the crowd the pigmy  sian'lexers proceed to rain blows ii|K>n  it, and as long as his head is up these  blows will fall.     Most of them will do  Senega  Cough Syrup  Has won with every person who has used it a  reputation for instant  relief.

It is better'to ignore these  small meddlers and whisperers, for  they thrive on the attention that they  obtain, and to turn on them is merely  to advertise them. Unless notice be  taken of it, slander soon dies a natural  dc.'ith.  I'or the protection of one another  from lying tales and mean criticisms  let. us all resolve never to believe a  defamatory storv except when it  comes on very good authority, and lot  ns all make a point of rebuking  meddlers and whisperers whenever  we catch them. If decent people did  not give ear so readily to slander  there would be less of it.���������Nelson  Tribune.
