His  warnings -. respecting ��������� intemperance  and impurity were.,delivered with  telling foi ice and .seriousness. In the  evening. theie weie ,at.. least "1500  crowded into the rink.wben Mi*1. Iveiby  closed the campaign' with one of -liis  characteristically forcible and sti iking  sermons. A very piofouud i-iipressiori  seemed to be made on hundreds. The  evangelists sang "The Holy.Gity" .is.a  duett, by special'request. Though this  sticied selection had been repeated  several times during three week:.'  campaign,the eifect seemed to incie.ise  with each repetition.. The power of  song and the gift of preaching uie  equally prominent with Messi s. Turk  and * Kerby. -and- the one. seenis_.as  effective as the other in deepening  impressions and ciipturing theheaits  of all who listen to them.  This is not tbe place to'attempt any  estimate of 'the results. "alte'hding the  services just closed., However, theie  were certain features ot the campaign  that had. a heartening influence on  Christian workers ���������in'all the churches.  The first thing noticeable was the  spirit ,of unity ."that pervaded the  ministers and the churches. ��������� Nu one  could tell from'the 'sermons aud  uddi esses to what p'ai tieular denomination the evangelists belonged. The  great and pressing themes of sin and  salvation permeated eveiy address  from'start to finish  gi ootid was  inference'from' all tbis is" thai in a'l  essential truth and elfoit the churches  are one. Organic union of the chuiches  may not come in our day,but there is  seen evidence Jf something eveu better,  in tbe unity of spirit and sentiment  that prevailed at Chese meetings. IC  not ready for oiganic union',' even if  this were desirable our churches are  ready for a Federation such as prevails  in.the,'-Free Churches of England by  whii-h -united' action is secured in  national movements of "a* tiior.il or  spiritual nature. *_ 'l"     -   *    '  , | Another outstanding-idea must have  been impressed on .meu'Sj.iiiit.tls by  these meetings. Gospel preaching has  not lost its-power. -There is a dee"p and  tremendous need 'common'to human  nature that is met and satisfied by  Christ's evangel. This accounts foi  the crowds of hundreds that thronged  the twenty "or twenty five meetings  held during the past three weeks. Of  course, while nothing new was preached, nothing hut the simple message of  God's love reaching to every son of  Adam, it must be admitted' that  Messrs. Turk and Kerby are in  a deep  m'iim* ifiv.it pri'iiclu'is. Th'*y ine  diiect, magnet ic. oltcti eloipieut. They  kiimv the tools with which they woik  unil the mate* inl on which lhey work.  ���������Seldom have men uppc.-ttcil in public  icgiii'ding whose leaching.- the lesii*  inony liii**i been so m-ni-nil that they  I'pe.ik the ti-ulli. thai il miikes n  strong appeal in a niiinV. mind, heal I  ii nd life. There is no' doubt lhat  Messrs, Tin k and Kerby would be  \\ elcoined lo the most influential  "huiches of any denomination in  Canada as regular pastor*, should they  he compelled to discoiitiiiue theardu'  oils Inhois of evangelistic woik.  .We do not know whether the  ineutings may lesiilt in the eniolment  of large number*, on the communion  rolls ol the Hi,iti-hes*. " That is a small  ilum in the i-H-e. The results'ot such  pic.iehini* cannot be put in tabulated  foi in. Nothing was said aboul nuur  hers*, there was no coniuing of heads,  theie wete no ex/iling demonstrations  veiy little even about joining lhe  ilitiuh, but still it is known that the  whole coiii.u.iuily was profoundly  moved. Tbe lesults may rather be  looked lor in adeepititr oi tbe Christian  life, a moie he.n ty surrender of every  paiLof human life to the sei vice'ol  Christ .md a slicing conviction dii\eu  home to the minds oi many, especially  among, the young of the reality of  spiritual things, indeed lhat they are  the only real and lasting things.

In connection with the coronation  honors, it is to tie noted that tho veteran  Liberal leader, Sir William Harcourt,  was honored by the oiler of a Peerage,  which ho declined. The announcement  takes the form of tho following semiofficial statement in the London  press : "We are enabled to state that  the King personally wrote to Sir William Harcourt asking his acceptance of  a Peerage. His Majesty added that it  would give him the utmost pleasure^ to  he permitted to acknowledge Sir William  Harcourt's long and distinguished associations with pulinc life.  "Sir William, in reply, acknowledged  with gratitude the signal mark of his  Majesty's gracious recognition of any  services which ho might have rendered  during a Parliamentary career of 34  years. He, however, felt that to sever  nil connection with thc Houso.of Commons at this lato period of his lite, in  order to take up a new career in another  sphere would mean to him a wrench to  which ho did not feel e<iual.  "lie thought hU duty lay whero his  public life had been passed, and in this  feeling he must humbly, while gratefully,  decline the honor whicli has Majesty  had so kindly' and unexpectedly ottered  him.  "In this view Mr. L. Haroourt, Sir  William's eldest son, heartily concurred."  6ir William's statement that he had  consulted his son before declining is  interesting, as showing the attitude of  his family on the subject. Sir William  is several years over 70, and in the  nature of things his son would in a  few years hear the burden end the honor  of tho Peerage, lt, therefore, really  concerned the son moro than the father,  and it was reasonable that his views  should have weight.  The Sovereign, no douht, has alwajs  enjoyed, even in recent years, the privilege of including in such honor lists any  who may he deemed fitting recipients of  royal courtesies, apart from the names  recommended by the Ministers of the  day." That King Edward is maintaining  this privilege is shown hy the fact that,  as Btated above, he wrote personally .to  Sir Wm. Harcourt offering the Peerage,  and probably additional evidence maybe found in the fact that a very liberal  proportion of'prominent Liberals is included in the batch of coronation honors.  It is true the Ministry of the day frequently desires to have such courtesies  paid some, of its lending opponents, but  in the present case there can be littlo  doubt that ths King's personal wishc3  have considerably extended the circle of  such favors.Among the Liberals who have  been so honored Is Sir Uglilrcd Kay-  Shuttlcworth, who is made a Peer. Mr.  John Morley, too*, is one of the first  members of the new Order of Merit. Mr.  Hnldane and Sir Edward Grey are made  "Privy Councillors. These are readily identified as leading representatives of the  Liberal party, but other less known Liberal members of Parliament to receive  the same honor are William Mather and  W. H. Holland, both great employers of  labor. Still another prominent Liberal  to receive recognition is Mr. William  Allan, the famous shipowner and ship-  ���������buildor.  "Literature Is recognized by thc conferring of Knighthood on Mr. Conan  "Doyle, the historian, for his generosity  in accepting advertisement in lieu of  direct payment, and on Mr. Gilbert  Parker, whose reputation as a novelist  among English people who have not  read him. is greater than among Canadians who have." So says The Saturday Review, probably rather with the  desire of saying something caustic, in  its characteristic manner, than because  it desires to be just. As ' to Conan  Doyle, and The Review's gibe at him  for circulating his history- of the war  free, and reaping incidentally some reward for his patriotic course, one can  only wish self-seeking, if it be such,  should take so desirable a form; but  -why should The Review deal so ungenerously with the creator of Sherlock  Holmes, one of the few striking characters in fiction which the present generation of novelists has produced.

We havo yet to hear of n really reliable method of preventing turnips from  imparting their objectionable flavor to  milk. Ever so many remedies for turnip-tainted milk have been advanced from  time to time, but we have never known  one of them to give absolutely satisfactory results. One of the most popular  of old-time methods of dealing with  turnip-tainted milk is to put a pinch  of saltpetre in the pans in which the  BSilk was kept. Another plan sometimes adopted was to feed thc roots immediately after milking, so that their  flavor hud time to become dissipated  ere the next milking time camo round..  Still another plan sometimes employed  wus to cut off the top parts of the roots  and feed them to store cuttle, preserving only the lower portions for the  milking cows, been use it is well known  that moro of the nrrid juico which imparts the objectionable fliivcr to llie  milk is found in the top than in. tflui  lower half of tlio root. Kcither of  these systems is, however, found capable of altogether doing away with the  taint whicli thc roots impart to the produce of the cows fed upon them. The  most satisfactory method of overcoming  trouble on this score is to pasteurize tho  milk, that is, to heat it up to a temperature of about I.m degrees before it  Is separated or set for creaming.���������London Paper.

And yet  one-third of such butter, 1 will venture,  is sent to the so* .p grease barrel, because so' many farm wives will not try  to make good butter. Many women,  otherwise careful housewives, are noted  for the bad butter they make. The  groceryman dreads to see their butter  come in, for well lie knows he'must  take it und give its price in goods or  money and keep a mum -.p or lose tneir  other trade. He cannot sell it out to his  town trade, and tliey dock the price on  him or refuse to t.ikc it altogether on  the market, and he usually learns the  cheapest route for it is back to the soap  scraps.  Notice thc poor butter-maker. She  seldom goes to this bother, and she has  layers of cream at all stages of ripeness, with streaked, sour butter. The  churn is of next importance. It matters  not what kind it is, old fashioned dash  or new fashioned barrel, just so it is  kept perfectly clean, scalded, aired and  sunned, until not a particle of mould can.  flourish in its presence; It cannot be  written and understood when the cream  is ripe enough to churn; this must bo  learned hy experience, and not forgotten  afterward. And as for the proper temperature, not all cows' milk churns alike,  and there arc times when thc same milk  will vary. I have had it como readily  at 52 degrees at one time and require 63  degrees another time. The richness of  the cream causes the difference. When  the cream is almost butter itself it will  "gather" quickly at a low temperature,,  or at least that is my experience. When  the butter has "como" you will know it  hy the.weight of the granules. ; Throw  in a little salt to make it all rise to' tho  top.  Butter should be worked twice, but  not too long. Some prefer to wash it  out with very little water, others with  plenty. I prefer the small amount. Too  much water washes the sweet taste  away. The-best bi'ttcr very often is  the butter from which the milK has been  beaten wiuiout addii'g a drop of water.  It is the safest way, also, unless you  know the water is pure.

In his  article    on    "The Problem of  Pure iiilk ply" in the May i'orum  Dr. H. D. C ^in p-2sents a number of  facts in regard to this article of food  which are of public interest and which  he hopes will tend to awaken people  to the study of a s'i'.ject which is of lib  little importance. That there is danger  in milk that is not put on the market  under the pfSpe^conditiohs^lie^docs-  nof deny. In fact, he says that within a few years no 1������S3 than 50 -.yplioid  fever epidemics have been traced directly to milk. Sea -let fever and diphtheria likewise have been transmitted  from milk. In sup���������"*er the high death  rate from intestinal diseases among infants is largely due to the effect of improperly prepared milk. According to  Dr. Chapin, thc chi������f danger of conn-acting diseaac from milk comc3 from un-  cleanlHicj-s in tie care of tho cow and  cleanliness in the cai-e of the cow and  failure to keep the milk Buflwiently  cool. Milk ������hj.uld be kept at a temperature of about 45 degrees, and in  warm weather this ia impossible without ice. With a profit of only a fraction of a cent a quart, it is obvious  that thc fanner has no margin on which  to do this to say nothing of the extra  care and attention* essential to ke'epin.;  his cow in proper conditionp. This is  not a matter that can be reached by  legislation, and Or. Chapin argues that  the only way to reach it is to' tore*  people to pav a. fair piice for their  milk.  The harmful bact-ria found In milk  axe roughly divided into two kinds���������  the putrefactine and the pathogenic, or  disease producing. The pulrcfactino  bacteria are the result of dirt and'.var-  ious kinds of filth coming in contact  with thc rnilk. The disease breeding  bacteria do not usunlly come from the  cow, but through soenridary contamination. The milker himself may convey  it, or the water u.������ed in washing tho  dairy utensils may come from a polluted well or stream.  When the milk is kept at body temperature the bacteria gTow with great  rapidity. In six lioum eveTy single  germ may produce ''.SOO more. Jf the  milk is rapidly coo'-d to below 45 degrees Fahrenheit tli������ growth of bacteria i.s hardly perceptible, hence it may  he. noticed that in rummcr fresh milk,  improperly hundled, sours in a few  hour.s, while in win'-r it will kocp for  days.

Hogs can be grown from pigdom to  finish in dry lots and dry pens, on dry  eoncentrattd foods, hut long ago experience showed that it was not the best  way, by a good deal. That way costs  more a pound, makes less thrifty hogs,  and is a pretty sure guarantee for a  considerable per cent, of loss by dying  with hog cholera, swine plague and kindred nilments. Thc fact is, hogs require  green food along with concentrate.d feeds  of corn, etc. They must havo it if best  results at pig growing arc to be looked  for.  If there is not plenty of clover pasture, cvry ono who grows hogs should  sow a patch of Dwarf Essex rape toed,  about three pounds to the acre.

Skim* milk _fed with grain is' a valuable food for hogs at airperiods of their  growth, but particularly so during the  earlier periods. Mixed milk and grain  make a better ration for hogs than cither alone. Fed in combination with grain,  skim milk has about GO per cent, niore  feeding value than when fed' ' alone.  About one hundred' pounds of skim  milk will take the place of twenty-three  pounds of grain in the former case and'  fourteen In the latter. '��������� Hogs - fed on  milk and grain ration make much more  rapid gains than cither' those ' fed on  milk or grain alone.  Hogs fed on milk alone gain* very  slowly, and do not keep their health  any too well, and in some cases they  are oif their feed so frequently that it is  necessary to make a change in their  feed to tempt them to greater eating.  The appetite falli g oft' nt such a young  age, it practically interferes with their  growth for all time. Hogs brought up  in this way, even if a change, in feed is  made whenever they show a fulling off  in-'appctiter^-do"��������� not��������� niakc-as���������heavy��������� a-  welght-as those fed milk and grain right  along. "Milk*und -tt������������������ in fed hogs without  exception keep * .i' excellent health. In  the same way. hogs fed on grain and no  milk do not do well, and'muke a rather  poor showing for thc amount of grain  eaten. Experience bus shown thut hogs  fed on grain alone require llirce pounds  of digestible matter to make one pound  of gain, and as -iy' grow older this  proportion does not differ much. Young  hogs that hive not been doing well can  be fod regularly on skim milk and grain,  and within a short time a marked improvement will bo noticeable.  A good proportion for a ration is two'  or three pounds of skim milk to ono  pound f grain. The. gain is not only  good for hoth the grain and milk, but  pound for pound thc milk and grain are  converted into a good profit.  Hogs fed on milk alone or grain alone  when **n pasture" do much better than  hogs similarly, fed in small pens. Those  fed on milk in the pasture gain more a  day and require less dry matter than  hogs fed in the pens. On the other  hand, hogs fed milk and grain in combination do better in pens, gaining more  a day than-those on. pasture, and' require practically the same amount of  food to make a po������nd of flesh.���������C.

Her bosom  rose and fell, * while her breath came  through closed Ups and shivering nostrils.  "It's not true!"-she hissed at last  "It is true," I answered. ���������  "Heavens!" she whispered, beneath  her breath. - And something else she  added. I was not sure of ail -the words.  But one I heard distinctly. It < waa  '���������Judgment." . "<  i  CHAPITER XIX.  The) House of Mystery.  Unless this woman were one of tha  greatest actresses living.she had not  known ot the mark on John Bourke's  arm I  - Some Impulse, whicfh (had heen like a  po.wer outside myself, had forced me to  speak the words which had'so shaken  Iver to the soul. .1 did not know whether I had been wise or foolish; but. I  ���������would not stop there, having gone so  tot.  "It Is strange*, since you seem to  know so much about 'Mr. Bourke, that  you didn't know more," I ventured,  half afraid of the effect my daring  might produce. But, though the big  pale eyes turned to ��������� my face, they  looked .through me unseelngly. And in  their tragic light my speech seemed inadequate as the thin piping of a reed  after the deep notes of a church organ.  Por the first time the -woman in black'  waa genuine and human. But her emotion either passed or was controlled by  an overwhelming strength of will.    ���������  Slowly' the rigid tension of the muscles round the mouth relaxed; the eyes  ceased to stare; the .tall figure sank  back against the cushions once more,  and the woman uttered a long sigh.  "Children play with dangerous weapons  sometimes," she said, in a, low, mean;  Ing voice.  She .had hardly ceased speaking before the train slowed Into a station. It  was not a fast train, and stopped so  often that I hadi ceased to look at the  names on -the station lamps, and now,  -w-hen-my-companlon_.rose_lrastily,_say.r_  ing, that we had Teached the end of our  Journey, I had not the faintest idea  ���������where we were. I was only sure that  we must be stopping somewhere between London, and Bournemouth.  The woman In black was evidently ln  no mood for answering questions, and  I made up my mind to trust ito my  own observation when we should leave  ���������the train. But I had not taken her  alertness and energy into calculation.  We had, of course, no luggage. My  companion got out ilrst, hastily 'helped  me down ��������� though I" did not want  I help���������and,   slipping  her  arm (through  i'nu groom, wilh an impassive face,  was still holding lhe door of the  brougham open. "Have you made up  your mind?" enquired the woman.  "This Is the last time of asking."  "I'll go with you wherever it may  be."  "Very good.   Come along, then."  She was nearer the door than I, and  stepped out first. I followed. She  gave no directions to the gfoom or  coachman, but apparently they understood what was expected of them, for  we walked away without looking ba*\'.  at the brougham. We passed the window of the flrst-class booklnj office,  and involuntarily I paused, think'ng  that she would buy a ticket for ne.  But she did not stop.  "All that is arranged," she*sald, carelessly. I knew then that she muit  have counted upon my consent, aad  the conviction of this fact came with a  little cold thrill.  A train was already In at No. 1 pla'.-  form. I saw that It was announced to  run to Bournemouth, but obstlnntely  determined to ask no questions, for tha  present, at all events; and no reference  was mado to our destination. We got  Into a first-class carriage, which my  companion asked the guard to reserve  for. us alone, .It, possible; and something passed from her hand to his. She  also ordered two' dinner baskets, fruit,  and a bottle of champagne.  Fifteen minutes later we were steaming out of the Rta'.ion, with the door ol  our compartment locked against Intruders.  "You must be very hungry," said the  woman ln.bluck, raising the covers of  the.two baskets, from which arose an  appetizing aroma.  "No, thank you. I really don't care  for anything," I replied.  But even as I spoke I repented, for I  could not tell what ordeal lay befoie  me; and, after all, if seemed foolish,  even school-girlish, to starve myself  for a sentimental scruple. It did not  stand to reason that a woman of this  strange type should take the trouble to  put a paragraph into the newspapers,  keep an appointment, and go out of  town entirely for unselfish reasons;  therefore I might reflect that, even If  sho meant fairly,by me, she had her  own purpose to serve, and I need not  consider myself deeply indebted to her  either for my railway fare or* the fo&d  ehe chose to offer. If it were true that  I might hope to come into money, I"  could pay her back for anything that  she had expended.  "Nonsense!" she ejaculated. "Ol  course you will eat your dinner. I  have the right, in-a way, to exact obedience from you,' for not only am. I  much more than twice your.age, but I  ���������have narrowly escaped being a relative, or, at least, a connection of  youra." *  I waa not pleased to hear this, yet I  allowed myself to be persuaded in the  matter of dinner, which was to fortify,  me against unknown trials to come.  "Now I will show you how excellently I can open a bottle of champagne,"  ehe went on. "It Is a -pity that we  must make shift with tumblers, but I  Bare-say It will to4te none iQie worse for  ���������hat."   -  ���������My glass was filled, though I shook  my head. "If you will not drink, I cannot," she announced, "and the wine will  be wasted. I propose the health of Mr.  John* Bourke,'and his continued great  success ln his political career. For you  to refuse would be to bring him bad  luck; dn other words, ifco dim -tihe brightness of his aura." * - -    - .  "You knew whore I was?"I faltered.  "The crystal showed me. My dear  girl," your aura and his did not blend  well."  "I don't know what you mean," I  Protested, irritably," by face crimson. .  "Drink his health ahd I will tell you."-  Desperately I raised the glass to my  lips and drank, for, though I disliked  and distrusted the woman whose every  word seemed to ring false, *her strange  manner and the equally strange way of  , putting things, called the superstition,  which lies dormant (at best) lln the  mind of every normal woman, into life.  She began to dominate me; and as she  had said, with a bleak gleam of those  pale eye3 from under the veil not yet  removed, that my refusal'would invite  "bad luck" to John Bourke, I dared not  refuse. It appeared, from what Lady  Feo had said, that I had brought danger to' him already; I would run no  more risks wliere he was concerned.  And so, like a child, I obeyed the woman ln black.  As I sipped the champagne, which almost, instantly flew to my head, for I  had never drunk any before, a sudden  _thought; lea'ped=.up_in--my__.brain_ Hke_a_  flame.  This woman knew of John Bourke.  Did she also know of the mark ho wore  on his arm?  "About the aura," she said, slowly,  ���������having raised her veil high enough to  leave .the full red lips and part of the  heavily-modelled nose exposed to view.  "About the aura: Every human being  is, surrounded" by an aura, which Is visible to the-Seeing Kye, but It Is not every human beini: wJk> .has the Seeing  Eye. I am one of the "few who have.  Happiness ln love can only be assured  by the proper ble.idlng of a woman's  aura   with   a   lni'i's.

So* did a masher. He fixed his loving.eyes upon her.  She paid no attention to him. He persisted and vainly endeavored to engage her ln conversation. Finally she  purchased two big geraniums.  "Do you live far Irom hore?" asked  the dude.  The lady made no answer at first;,  but 'after an instant's reflection,  prompted tiy tho size of tho geranium  pots and.plants, and tho necessity ot  employing a porter, sho replied sweetly, "Great King  street."  "Oh," exclaimed tho masher, ."you  can't carry such a burden so* fart Allow me to help you."  She smiled, but.ln the language of  tho duellists. Instead of "abandoning  him the choice" ot pots, she pointed to  both and smiled again. Tho masher put  a pot under each arm, and, equipped  in this way, went oft with the lady.  When thoy come to Great King street  sho stopped, thanked the* dude> and  stretched out her beautiful little  hands for the flower pots.  But the masher'politely insisted upon carrying them up to her house.  "The trouble Is," said the lady, "I  live on the top floor and there is no  elevator."  "I would not be surprised it you  told me that you lived away up in  heaven. Angels live'there,"., said tho  enthusiastic masher.  "Well, come, then," said th'e lady, In  the golden tones in'which the divine  Sarah ln "Cleopatra" ; addressed her  Tony. '' - - -  -  So up they went until they came to  tho abode of the sorcereses. She rang  the bell. Heavy footsteps were heard  Inside. The door was opened and a  fine-looking man appeared.  "Allow me to introduce you to my  husband, sir," said the lady. "My  dear," she added, addressing her inferior portion, "this gentleman ' has  been kind enough to carry these plants  for me'all the way from Waverley.

P  Thursday.   August 4, 1002.  A POLICY FOR  ALL   CANADIANS.  Mr. R- T.. Borden, lender ol* the Conservative patty, speaking at the  banquet of the Canadian Manufacturers'Association, held fit Halifax last  week, spoke in unhesitating and certain terms in his advocacy of the  building up of Canada, lie expressed  h't3 confidence in tlie future national  life of this great country, and called  for the adoption of a policy best suited  to the attainment of thu greatest  jjood. Mr. Borden * fails to see wliy  Canuda should continue to lie the  third best, customer of/: the United  States, when onr patronage, wfiich  amounted to ,$120,000,000 during 1002,  is extended at tlie expense of onr own  ���������nanufacturei-s. Neither can lie see  .-iny reason for permitting United  States manufacturers to make a  slaughter market of Canada, and his  declaration, that our industries should  have full and adequate protection,  ���������will commend itself to thoughful  Canadians.  .On   another  great issue now before  the    Canadian     public ��������� preferential  trade���������Mr.   Borden   stood   on  strong  ground.   He   urged   that a factory in  "Canada contributed quite as mush'to  lhe welfare of the empire, as a similar  institution   in .Yorkshire;   with   the.  additional advantage to this country,  lhat home industry guaranteed home  prosperity.     Mr.   Borden, in striking  lhis  keynote   of   "Canada  for Canadians," has raised himself above the  mere  shallow   feelings   of    a   leader  ..peaking   for   effect, and   has   shown  that  his,, heart and the hearts of   his  followers are with the welfare of their  ^native land, at well as the empire. _. _  Underlying Mr. Borden's dictums is  the   consciousness   that   Canada   can  furnish homes for the millions, who.  living in  the   United States and other  countries,, produce   the   commodities  which   we   so   generously    purchase.  All   that   is   needed   to secure to our-  .-elves the profits of this great foreign  output is adequate protection.   Then,  instead of having our wants provided  for   on   alien     soil,   the     artizan   so  employed would l>e forced to transfer  his domicile   to Canada.   That would  mean the introduction of a redundant  Mimulant   to   Canadian     trade,   and  in Head of ranking as a great consumer  w* would   become   n   gieal  source of  supply for the want.- of other nations.  Once wa had established our right to  consideration as a  producing centie.  ��������� iur home markets would  furnish  our  great  agricultural   sections    with  an  .iltnost   unlimited   outlet     for    their  'omuiodities.      Adequate    protection  would secure for lhe farmer 'tlie same  privileges at borne as  it would open  r.p   to   the    manufacturer     and     his  tmployees.     It   is   a   stive   and   take  propoiition,    elementary in   its   simplicity.     Instead of sending his wheat  the textile worker in Great Britain,  the farmer  would find the Britisher  wbo now consumes our farm produce  miles away from its soui-ce, comfortably settled io  Canada and paying a  ..comparatively   better price   for  food  stuffs.     There   would   be  no    ocean  freight charges, no duties, no insurance, no forwaiding charges for the  agriculturalist  to  meet,'  and    there  fi-ould be the additional advantage of  Man as an Incarnation.  EOPLE of a materhUistlc frame at  mind, to wll an l man is but a machine, says an ediltoria-1 writer Is  the "Hospital," are apa to put on on*  side all Uiat cannot be ���������weltrhed anl  measured a������ not onJy Inexplicable or  unthinkable, but a.s uulte beyond tht  i-imgo o������ reasonable discussion. Such  people are advised to attend a meeting  of the Soolety for Psychical Research  for "a c'hange of scene." What tliey  willi see is tlius described:  "There they will find people, quite -as  convinced as they are of their own  sanity, and quite as content as they  can possibly be with She correctness of  their own Interpretation of things, asserting the most astounding- propositions, without turning* .a hair. To those  who are so self-centered as to tihlnk  that there is .something cranky about  all wbo dotnot sec as Bhey do, it is a  wholesome awakening- to find good,  solid, comfortable, and respectable people believing in telepathy as a thing  indisputable, and holding that man, aa  we see -him engaged in his various  more or less Ignoble pursuits, in the  city and elsewhere, is but 'tbe incarnation of one little bit of himself as he  exists ln an intangible and ethereal  form. At the last meeting of the Psy-  ohieal Research Society, Dr. Oliver  Lodge, F.R.S., said that he did not hold  that fhe whole of any one ot us was Incarnated in their 'terrestrial bodies;  certainly not in childhood; more, but  perhaus not so very much more, .in  adult life. "What was .manifest was  only a definite portion of a much larger  wihole. What the rest was doing during the years spent 'here he did not  know. Perhaps it was asleep; but  probably, he said, it was not entirely  .asleep with men of genius, nor .perhaps  "was it all completely inactive with  people called ''mediums. Mow, to the  modern materialist .-sill this is absolute  'rot.' Yet Dr. Lodge i.s not exactly ������  ninn to pooh-pooh. Indeed, may hot  the lmmateiialists retort .that" this is a  Christian --'country and 'ttaat-^our very  -religion" teaches .us not to weigh and  measure too'exactly? Again, Roentgen,  Tcsla, and 'Marconi Jiave of late been  giving many shocks to old ideas. At  any rate, this is clear, that we must  not too rigidly put outside tiie bounds  of saViIty belief in the unthinkable. It  is -a queer world, and -which halt of it  Is sane appears still undecided."  SOCIETIES.

CORRESPONDENT writing from  London.under date ol February  13 says: "One queer phase of the  present smallpox scare Is the smallpox  Insurance department opened at  Lloyd's. The current rates are 21-2  per cent, it recently vaccinated, and  31-3 If not vaccinated since Infancy.  The insurance becomes due on the doctor's certificate that Uie policy-holder  has smallpox." He adds: "After logging along comfortably' with smallpox  ln its midst for six months, London Is  now beginning to get worried, and a  large contributing cause of that worry  Is that if ithe plague spreads much  more It Is going 'to frlgKten away the  profitable American cousin, who is expected to come over In unprecedented  shoals for tlie coronation season and  scatter dollars right and left. Trouble  began away back ln August, and has  been slowly growing,"oft and on, ever  since, until the average lately has been  about 50 new cases a day. One day  last week it ran up to S2. There* were  188 new cases In September, 309 in October, 473 ln November, 804 ln Decem-  b"er"_arid~l;295"Ih_January.���������Xetraccord--  lng to previous experience, smallpox  reaches Its height in London from  January to May. Consequently it would  be well for readers planning a trip to  see King Ed-ward's crown put on to  watch the smallpox returns from London for the next four or five weeks. At  present the plague can be said to be  well under control, but a big sudden  Increase would .tax London's resource*  to the utmost and might cause a panic."  .SALVATION   ARMY.

ONE ot the oddest of recent fads In  the line of peraonal adornment,  which seems to have been unanimously adopted by every young woman  with any pretensions to "style," says a  Washington paper, is the wearing of  the Chinese letter belt. It Is quite two  years since Mrs. Seton-Thompson���������now  Mrs. Thompson^ieton���������a������tonlshed her  admirers by wOmr a ribbon belt fastened with Chln������������������ characters on silver. Aft<������r a time somebody Improved  on her Idea by orflerijii? a whole belt  made of silver letters, held together by  tinv chains and linid with colored velvet". They cost about ST,x, apiece and at  once became "the rage" in Washington as an Inexpensive article could  never hope to do. It makes UWle difference what the lettern signify, since  few people in the country can read  Chinese, and you pick up Mlver characters wherever you can and have them  Htrung together regardless of context.  A young lady of my acquaintance pos-'  desses one -A-Jilch is .the pride of her  heart, and she wears it on nil o-eea-  sions. T.ecently ahe met an educated  Chinese gentleman, who observed her  odd belt with kindling eyes and expressed hli admiration of the sentiment  set forth in its lottering. "ft Is beautiful," be said, "and 1 congratulate you  on the excellence of your wishes, which  I think are unusual In America."  "Oh! the sentiment*," replied the  owner of the glorified laundry bill. "Do  tell tne what the characters mean.  They look all alike to me."  "There are but two wishes expressed," said the Chinaman, "but as  they are repeated several times, over, I  know they must be your true heaj-t  feelings. One is 'May all my enemies  die by .torture," and the ������th������r ia 'May  I have fifty sons.' **  E.

A despatch from Yorkton, Assinboia  say, in reference to the latest freak of  the Dnukhohors, which was briefly  mentioned in telegraphic despatches a  few days ago: A religious mania of an  unprecedented and distressing nature  has broken out among the Doukhobors  around Yorkton and to some extent  elsewhure. It iH said to have originated  in the Swan liiver district, early in the  spring, from whence it has ypteml to  other sections. Of the seven thousand  ��������� Doukhobors in the country, over five  thousand* are located near York ton, of  whom probably 25 per cent are already  infected and fears are entertained lest  the dementia should spread to the  entire lot. The government have been  kept 'well informed regarding the  ' matter, but, strange to say, little or  nothing has appeared in the public  press regarding this remarkable phe-  - nomenon developing in our midst.  It is well known thattheDoukhobors  ��������� are averse to the shedding of blood. In  ' consideration of this fact  and   as   an  inducement, to   encourage   them    to  / emigrate   to Canada, our government  wisely or unwisely  guaranteed' thetn  exemption from military service.     As  . for what they "should   eat,   that   was  "purely a personal affair. I?they choose  ' to confine themselves to   a   vegetable  i diet that-was nobody's   business,   but  their own..   In a free country   a   man  may, eat. what   he   chooses,   and. his  '.'religion, no matter how absurd :t may  "' appear' to other people,   niust   not   lie  .interfered with.    Sofar.so.good!   --All  might have heen well bad the state- of  affairs'rested at this point.     But the  Doukhobor religion does not appear to  he a  finished   product.     It   is  of   a  'progressive nature.     It is now in the  .formative   stage   and   is . developing  unsuspected and impracticable tend"  encies of an alarming character. From  the belief that it was a sin to eat flesh,.  ijtvseems a  long  jump.T.to; reach   the  conviction that it was also sinful to eat  animal products of any. kind, but these  people bridged   the   gulf,   and -milk,  butter, cheese, eggs, etc., were   added  tothelistof "lorbiddenfruits." Having.  reached this absurd 'position, 'further  advancement in the same direction was  comparatively easy and logical.    If it  was wrong to eat the flesh of animals,  the same line ot reasoning' soon  lead  them to condemn the   use   of < leather  boots and leather harness made  from  the hides of God's creatures, ant. then  followed the condemnation of woolleri  clothing, because wool grows   on   the  bodies of sheep that also belong to'the  Lord." The next step was ' still   more  ',\    sweeping in its effects in their economic  condition.    "It was. wrong   to   make  allow th'eir stock to he- sold,'-' and the  money might be taken to cure .for  them till they return to theii* senses,  and were ready'to reslrck their farms,  but to this they would not consent.  God's ereutures should not be sold to  the iimi'genei'.ite to be worked or  slaughtered. They have just as much  right to "life, liberty and pursuit of  happiness," as mankind has. Even  the government is helpless under such  circumstances, especially so in view of  the fact that these people are not  violating the laws ofthe land and  cannot therefore be legally or justly  interfered with unless on the ground  of lunacy.  If the mania does not turn its conr.-e  hefoie winter sets iti, atnrvatlon and  disease are inevitable Some peopk'  think the advent ol' t "Id weather will  I'l'ing lliem lo lheir senses, but, the  liis-tury of leligiotts' manias in other  countries tnd in bygone day-, doe*, not  strengthen this expectation. Suffering  like persecution, tends to inlen*.ily  nillu-r ihim abate religious delusions.  Winter will force a solution of some  kind, i'or they cannot be allowed to  starve or endanger the health of the  community at large by inviting an  epidemic.  The Douhohnrs lire intelligent enough  to realize that a Northern latitude like  ours is not adapted to lhe' practice ol  their peculiar methods of living. Tliey  have been in correspondence with authorities iu different parts of .the  United Stales us well as Australia iu d  other distant lands, wheie .milder  climatic conditions would enalih  thetn to subsist exclusively* on the  fruits of the soil, and clothe themselves  without trespassing on the^possesslons  of the animal kingdom. It is needless  to say thai no one wiirits'thein, so they  are still here, an '"elephant" 'on the  hands of- the ,_. government 1 .that  that brought them in'at so much  expense, a clog to the progress ol the  country, an excrescence on our ��������� economic and social institutions, a-, menace  to   lhe-public , health,  and   liable   to  .        - *  become a burden on the c.immunity nl  large.

Twelve or fourteen  of them hitched to a plough suffice' for  those purposes. It is even said that the  woiiien|arenotexeiiiptfioni this beastly  lalior;   but   if no,   they   endeavor   to  ^ **^  conceal the fact, as vehicles coining to  and froni Yorkton are drawn by men  only.

"D  NOTICE  OWN the Line With John Hen-ry7 I  is the title of an amusing little  booklet of sketches 'In up-tb-  i date slantr by*the pseudonymous  ���������writer, Hugh McHugh, wlio is disputing: with George Ade the right to the  particular- niche left! vacant by tha  death o������ the .entertaining "Billy Baxter." John Henry is a sporty maa-  about-town, the very antithesis of  Richard Harding Davis's refined Van  Bibt/er. From his account of his experiences at the races with his best  girl, we quote a few characteristic extracts: ,  -When we got to the track they were  bunching the bones for the first race,  so I told Clara Jane I thought I'd crawl  down^to1 the ring and plaster two or  three~ thousand around among the  needy.  Two or three thousand, and me with  nothing but a live-spot in my jeans,  and the return ticket money in that!  "Sure!" I said; "I've got a pipe!"  "Well, I hope you won't smoke It  near me.   I hate pipes!" she said.  "All light; I'll take my pipe down to  the betting ring ami smoke It tliere!" I  said, and we parted good frlendtt.  (In front of-the band stand he met a  number of friends ready to give him  tips on the winners:  Every Breezy Boy I met had a different hunch, and they called me into the  wharf and unloaded.  I (lgurcd it out that if I had bet five  dollars on each good thing they gave  me _.I would have lost four hundred  thou-sand dollars.  Then I ducked under,, sopped up a  stein'of root beer, itnd climbed up again  to the hurricane deck.  "Did you bet?" enquired Clara Jane.  "Only spveh hundred and thirty dollars," I sald;'"a mere bag o' shells."  I leave a call for'7.30 every morning,  and I suppose that's the reason I was  so swift with the figures.  "My! what a lot of mon^l" said the  Pair One;  "do point out the horse you-_  bet on!   .1 shall be awfully int'erestPd  in this race!"  (John Henry picked out a horse at  random, declaring that the only way it  could lose "was for some sore-head to  get out and turn the trrfck around.")  Sure enouq-li, the favorite galloped  Into port and dropped anchor six hours  ahead of the other clams.  I win oyer two thousand two hundred  dollars���������conversation money���������and Bonnie Bi-ighteyes was in a frenzy of delight   I had a nervous chill for fear she'd  declare herself In on the rake-off.  But sho didn't, so I excused myself  and backed down the ladder to 'cash in.  (Still the wary John Henry listened  to'the tips and iefrained fiom betting.)  When I got back to the stand I had  a preoccupied air. The five-spot in my  jeans was crawling aiound and begging  for a change of scene.  -When Clara-. Jane asked me how-  much I had bet on the race'just about  to start. I could only think of nine hundred dollars.      . ,  When she '^wanted to know . w,hich  horse" I pointed my finger at every  toad on the-track, and said: "That one,  ever there!"  It won. . , ,  At the end of the third race I was  $19,218 to the good.  Clara Jane had it down ln black and  white on the back of an envelope. In  figures that couldn't lie.   -.  (John   Henry^   remarked   that   when,  sClara begged him to be "content with-  ^his winnings" and'not bet any more, he'  ��������� promised, "but she didn't notice that I  had my fingers crossed.")  ;   I simply had to have a. roll to flash on  ,the way home, so I took my loneljr V  and went out Into, the Promised Land  after the nuggets' Maddy had put me  wise to. -.   .   .   -', .'  (Pretty Boy was his' choice, despite  the fact that the bookmakers told "him  he had made a mistake.) - t  r When the horses got away with Pretty Boy in"front I started ln to stand on  my head, but changed my mind and  swallowed half the programme. ���������'  > Pretty Boy at the quarter! Me for  Rector's till they put the shutters up!  "i Pretty Boy at the half! Me down to  Tiffany's in the morning dragging  tiaras -away in a dray!  Pretty Boy at the three-quarter pole!  Me doing the free-library gag all over  the place!  ��������� But just as they came In the stretch  Pretty Boy forgot something and went  back after it.  The roach quit me cold at the very  door of the safety deposit vaults,  ��������� (Of course Clara Jane never guessed  his plight, for he "rushed down among ���������  the-ramblei's-and-made-ra-swift-touch-  for the price of a couple of rides home,"  and on  the way back promised Clara  Jane that he would be awfully careful  of his $19,218���������conversation money,)  School Humor,  AN English paper gives some further  examples Qf children's unconscious  humor In answering examination  questions:  Alexander the Great was- born ln  absence of his parents.

Mamma  looked up, surprised and grieved at  the outburst, but she didn't say a  word; she only waited for what would  come  next.  "I will!" cried Tony. "I'll have to,  mamma! He's the worst boy that ever  livfed! He's���������he's���������I'd like to pound  him al! black and blue.' so!"  Whack! came his fists together  again, poor Tony; and the fire in his  eyes was all at once put out by tears.  Mamma spoke then.  "Tell mother all about It," said  she.  And Tony sat down on a little  cricket at mamma's feet, .and laid nis  head against mamma's knee, and told;  .which was just what he wanted to do.  "He's kept plaguing me even since I  *egan to go to school, mamma Johnny  Spratt has and he's the biggest too. I  wouldn't plague a boy littler thaa I  was would you mamma?*'  ; "No. dear: I don't think I would."  "But he does, and calls names, too,"  Tony went on, beginning to grow rosy  again. He calls me 'Tony George' because I always lift my hat to old aunty  Dinsmore���������and' that's right, isn't lt,  mamma?" as he thought he saw a little twinkle tn mamma's eye.  *.

"It would be a great deal better than  thrashing him all to uleces. Tony." she  said; and Tony hung his head and  blushed. "Fiipporn you try it."  "T don't know how," said Tony.  "I think you can mioss, dear. And  now we won't say another word about  lt for a week."  "I s'pose." said Tony, slowly, with  bis fam puckered in*o a dozen wrinkles  over this new idea.

"I'm 'fraid It won't be much." he  thmijtbt. with a little discontented  pucker hetween hl*s eyes. "It'll be  pretty hard, T s'pnse."  And bo lt was. Why. It did seem as  If Johnny Spratt grew worse every day.  Tony had to bite his tongue hard a  good many times to keep from telling  ���������tales out of school about him. And  an for being kind to him���������that seemed  'quite out of the question, though Tony  ���������honestly did his best and didn't "get  angry mort times than he could help.  At the end of the week his birthday  was coming, and Washington's: and  tie night bf-fore, he rushed home from  school all out of breath with his hurry  and delicht.

'  Mamma smiled, and kissed both  glowing cheeks; for though Tony was  a good deal more than halt past nine.  as he would have told you. he hadnft  grown away from his mother's kisseB,  yet.  "T hope yon will have a very nlca  time." she said.  She said it again, next morning,  when she had helped him Into his ulster, and tied his muffler carefully, and  settled his fur can on his brown head.  "And now. Tony," she said, looking  down Into his clear, brown eyes, "I  want you to rememher whose birthday  this in���������and all about it. dear."  "Yos'm. I'll try," said Tony. And  then he darted off to join the merry  little crowd at the schoolhouse.  Johnny Spratt was there, too. but  somehow he didn't look so merry as  the rest. His eyes looked almost, as  though he had heen crying.  But before Tony had time to wonder  much about this, Mr. Baker's big, fom-  Beated cutter was at the door, the bells  jingling and the horses breathing out  little puffs of steam on the clear, frosty air. Then what a scramble there  was! It didn't seem longer than a  minute before all of the . laughing,  merry company had piled In. and were  tucking the robes around themselves.  Not quite all. There was one lonely  little figure left on the platform.  "Come Johnny!" called Mr. Blake,  kindly.  But Johnny Spratt shook hit. head  and looked- down at his feet.' There  were tears in his eyes, and he didn't  want to cry before' them all���������a great  big boy, almost eleven vears old!  "I���������I ain't going," he said, "I only  came tp^ see you off. I ain't got no���������  no twenty-five cents."  There was a stir In Tony Walters'  heart Just then, and he felt a funny  little warm rush all over him. He  thought of mamma���������he remembered  whose' birthday It was. His cheeks  grew cherry-red and fits eyes'5'"'grew  misty. In a flash he was"out of the  cutter, pressing Mb sliver quarter into  Johnny Spratt's hand.  "Here, Johnny, take this," ile. cried.  "You���������you want to go more'n I do."  Poor Johnny Spratt! He looked at  Tony and then at the slelgb-Ioad of  boys, and then at Tonyagaln, and his  face turned very red..  "I���������I'd look pretty," he said, "a-tak-  Ing your money after I've O Tony  Walters!   I won't!"  But the more he wouldn't, the more  Tony insisted.  "Because it's my birthday as well as  George Washington's, "you know," Jit,  said, with a little laugh; "and I'd  'most as lieves stay to bomb with my  mother.   Come, Johnny!"  And then Mr. Blake, who understood  all about it, said, "Come, Johnny, jump  in," and Johnny obeyed, nearer to crying now than ho had been before.  But all at once there came a voice  from the driver's seat.  "Crowd In yourself, little chap." It  said. "I don't believe you'll weigh half  of twenty-five cents" worth.-** All  aboard, now!    Off we go-o!"  And off Tony went -with the rest���������  if he hadn't I'think I couldn't have  told the story with half so good grace.  And he never was so happy, and never  Jiad so good a time In all his life before as he had that day.

Chili, Peru and Brazil owe their  enfranchisement from the yoke of Spain  and Portugal in no small measure to  the astonishing' feats of the Scottish  sailor-adventurer. The Chilian navy always numbers an Almiranto Cochrane  among its ships, and it is in honor of  the singular feats which Cochrane performed in* com., tnd of thc infant*navy  of the republic. Pre-eminent among  Lord Cochrane's characteristics was a  perfectly, uncanny ingenuity.' This ingenuity has for some generations been a  family trait, and his grandson has invented a number of useful military appliances, including a galloping gun,carriage, which is known by his name.  Early Days in the Xavy.  Thomas Cochrane, tenth Karl of Dundonald, was born in 1773, and succeeded to the Earldom in 1831. All of the  deeds which made his name ring  through the civilized world were performed under the name of Cochrane.  His father, a scientist and inventor of  ygreat theoretical skill and complete  lack of business ability, hud taken a  dislike to the navy, and destined his son  for the army. For thc military. prof es-  sion certain eccentricities of his upbringing caused him to take a violent  dislike, and after sonic years of parental opposition he got bis way, and' in  1793, in his eighteenth year, a lud six  feet tall, he went to sea.  The First Lieutenant of Cochrane's  first ship was Jack Lar'mour, a man  who had risen by sheer superiority of  seamanship from the forecastle to the  quarterdeck. The Earl's -son and the  rough Lieutenant became fast frimds,  and Cochrane most zealously applied  himself under this able instructor to thc  learning of every del nil of his profession, becoming in a remarkably short  time a consummate teaman. Early in  1795, after little move than a year's  service, he was acting Third T.U'mvnunl  of his frigate, und early in li'Mj he was  Lieutenant. High rank and the lax regulations of the day caused this rapid  rise.  The Cruise of the Speedy.  Early in 1SO0.

But after an hour of this work Cochrane  Baw that if he meant to succeed he,  must end tho action forthwith. Telling  tho men that they must take the frigate  at once or be taken themselves, he ordered some of them to blacken their  faces, and then called nil hands to board.  The doctor, Mr. Guthrie, gallantly volunteered to take thc helm, and to re-,  main for a time thc only soul on tho  Speedy. All was soon ready. The doctor  laid the Speedy alongside with admirable skill, "nnd in n few seconds the  whole of the crew was on the enemy's  deck. The. bulk of the Spaniards wr������e  stationed to repel men who might board  by the head ; but when they saw the  blackened faces break tlirough thc white  smoke of thc bow puns they .were for  the moment transfixid to the deck with  horror at bo diabolical uu apparition.  Cochrane hud counted on Spanish superstition for the gain of a momentary advantage, and he wns not deceived. Before the Spaniards could recover themselves the rest of the Speedy's men had  fallen upon their renr. nnd the whole  mnss wus engaged in a galliint but confused struggle in the frigate's waist.  Seeing thc Spanish colors still flying,  Cochrane ordered them to he handed  down. The Spaniards, supposing thc  act to bo that of their own ollieers,  without further ado surrendered, and  the O.'imo of 32 heavy guns and Ul!) men  wns the prize of the Speedy, of 14 4-  poundcrs and 54 men. Even so the victory was hardly complete, for there  were 203 unharmed Spanish prisoners  on board and but 45 British sailors to  guard them. Cochrane drove the Spaniards forthwith into the hold, and there  kept them at bay by means of one of  their guns pointed down the hatchway,  with men standing over them with lighted matches. . . . The British loss in  the nction was one man killed nnd Lieut.  Parker and seven men wounded; that of  the Spaniards included the captain and  thirteen men killed and 41 men wounded." -  Cochrane was captured by three  French line-of-bnttle. ships, after a cruise  in the Speedy of thirteen months of active mischief, "during which time sho  hud taken or retaken more than 50  vessels, 122 guns and more than 500  prisoners."  The Pallas and the Corvettes.  In 1S06 Cochrane was in command of  the Pallas, a 34-guii frigate, and with  her terrorized the French coast of tho  Bay of Biscay. He was dreaded by  the French as be had been by the Spaniards.- In. April he looked for some  French corvettes in the Garone. He  sent all of his men except about 40 in  the boats up the river to capture one  of these. They took her before daybreak, but two more corvettes came  down to rescue "her; and the British  seamen beat these off with the fire of  .the guns of their prize. But meanwhile  three more French corvettes appeared  at sea, bearing down on * thc Pallas,  which had only 40 men on board.  "Without a moment's hesitation Cochrane sent his few hands aloft to tie up  the furled sails with rope-yarn, and ordered them to stand by with their  knives. All was soon ready, thc word  was given to let fall; and in an instant  the yarn was cut nwny, and .down fell  thc whole cloud of thc frigate's canvas  together, ns though not forty, but 400  perfectly drilled men were aboard her.  Thc sight was too much .for the three  corvettes. They turned and ron off  along shore; and away started ythe de-  "fenceless Pallas in pursuit, while her  handful of men, all grimiiug thoir broadest, as we mny guess, strained every  nerve to sheet home. Iind tho Frenchmen noticed how s'.v.vly this wns dono  they might have discovered the trick,  but" they were seared beyond nil power  of observation. Vory soon thc Pallas  came up with one of the flying corvettes  and opened fire from her bow-guns. She  could not have manned more for want  of men, but these were amply sufficient. After half a dt.zcn shots the French  captain deliberately ran his ship ashore,  and the crew, takiu<_: to the ho-Us. made  all haste for the. land: hnd they made  for the Pallas instead, they could not, by  Cochrane's own admission, have failed to  capture her. Thc stranded vessel having been dismasted by the shock, the  Pallas ranged up alongside, and wns engaged in completing the wreck by firing  into hi.r hull, when t.he other two corvettes came up to the rescue of their  ������onsort_= A_rnin the same __ trick  was repeated, with the same  result. The Pallas cinshed straight at tho  nearest, and a i"t**_iia corvette waa run  ashore in desj-erir'ton und dismasted.  Leaving her to tako iier ek.ii'.cc, Cochrane was returning to thc river In order  to pick up his mui, when he observed  the third corvette making for the river  likewise. Finding herself intercepted,  she, too, was run ashore, an.l abandoned, and thus three corvettes, mounting between them 04 guns, deliberately  committed sul.-ide beforo a. defenceless  frigate, throu;;'.*. sheer fright nt the  fall of her ������nils.

From Out moment hig fame  was secure as a oilor of marvellous skill  and Tesourcc,  Th* Negotiations at Pretoria.  Bennett Burleigh, the well-known correspondent, writing while the Pretoria  negotiations* were in full swing, gave his  newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, a vivid  sketch of the bargaining, from which a  couple of extracts m'ay be made :���������  The delegates evinced little surprise  during their railway journey at the evidences of the resumption of industrial  pursuits in all directions, as if 'there was  neither war nor unrest in thc country.  In conversation they betrayed no special  interest upon any topic except in " the  mutter of politics, homo and foreign.  They were polite enough, but evidently  silent uud distrustful as rea Indian  chiefs, of whom they put mu more thun  onec iu mind. Ollieers and civilians  who in kindness tried to engage them in  n chut found it dull work nud guve up  the attempt. They were luken lo a  .stirring polo mutch ln Pretoria, hut they  paid little heed to the gnuie, nnd only  niiKWorcd now nnd then with n".lu: .lu!"  On the railway journeys lhey read little,  pnssing the time for the most, part ill  smoking, tnlking lo each other, und  drinking. Poor Mr. Steyn seemed more  down on his luck thun any of the others  on the way to Pretoria. He was nervous and out of sorts, und ns he stepped  out of the train his hut fell off more  than once. But his eyesight is very hnd  ���������worse than 1 thought it. There ia  something more seriously wrong than nn  ordinary cold and'inflammation. -A local  medical man was called in and is prescribing for him- Within a few minutes  of their arrival each party was conveyed to a temporary residence.  Sentries were placed al the gateways  of their abode. The soldiers in question were drawn from the escort or'  guard of honor. It was conceded that  the Boers* could sec whomsoever they  wished, or go where they willed, in company of an officer. ,Thc only understanding was that the delegates, unless  by express consent, should not discuss  ���������politics or thc war with their visitors.  Scores of female relatives and a few of  tho sterner sex could be seen walking  about daily in thc garden or lounging  upon the v< ndahs and balconies chatting with the Boer leaders. Delarey hud  visits from his daughter, who resides  with her husband is Pretoria, as well as  from old burgher friends. Doubt and  suspicion clouded the Boer General's  mind as they did those of his colleagues,  destroying frankness and easy " intercourse.1  jjotd Kitchener, who surely is a diplomatist as well as a soldier���������and he bus'  had varied! experience in both capacities,  at lcastj.iit Egypt���������received the delegates  at his residence.  With studied care the large drawing-  room .for his work was tidied up, and*  many of the-maps, books, pictures and'  papers were removed.' But the' large*  Dutch family Bible, the pride and ornament of every noer household, held its-  old conspicuous place upon the centre  of "the great table. It was a sight to  see how the delegates came in and "peered about, gazing flatly at everything  they saw. and- wondering who wns hidden behind the curtains. But they were  soon evidently all at their case and talk  proceeded. Louis Botha was an old acquaintance, and neither Lukas Meyer  nor Schalk Burger evinced any rcUecnce  in i-iseussing the cause of their visits In  short, the Boers showed that tbey rather liked the opportunity of ' meeting  and conversing with Lord Kitchener,  whereas it is an open secret that thoy  fear Lord Milner. Tho hitter arrived at  Pretoria ou Sunday 'veiling, and took  up his abode at thc British residency in  Sunnyside district. Lord Milner subsequently met the delegates, individually  and collectively, at Lord Kitchener's and  at the residency. Evidently he got on  good terms with the most' of them, and  in particular with the chief members of  the Transvaal Government. It became  hourly more evident that there was a  serious division of counsel among the  Boers as to any further prosecution of  the war.  The Transvaalers, with but one or two  isolated exceptions, were for immediate  settlement of hostilities, even to leaving  Free Staters to themselves, ln tbe end,  I believe, it has come to! this���������they are  lo have the dubious honor of being the  lust to come in and to give up the fur-_.  .-ther ...useless, wanton, spilling of human  blood. Steyn, 'who is, l?"fear"r'rbreaking-  up physically, voted for continuing the  straggle, but his influence counts for  little beside that of the pugnacious,  plump, swart, saturnine Christian Dewet, who is the real burgher muster of  thc Free State. Dclarcy's was practi-  cnlly the only bellicose voice rnised for  war to the bitter end from thc Transvaal, iir, Ueilz, the.,State Secretary,  need not bo too seriously considered.  But let this justice he done to Gen. Delarey, who deserves the. meed of honest  men's praise.

They began to contend about  the color of.the hlossom; Lenchen said  it wns red, but Gretchen said it was  blue. At lirst they were not angry at  all. and talRcrt in fun, but soon they  talked in earnest uud quarreled. From  this day' their frlundshlp seemed to Le  at an end. They did not visit each  other any more, and when they chanced  to meet they passed each other without  greeting. But both* of these little girli-  wore very unhappy Indeed.  One evening���������it was the evening before Grotchen's birthday���������Lenchen  seemed to be bothering her little head  about something. .Always beforo sho  bad enjoyed a good time on Gretchen's  birthday.

She brought a book in  which were*, a great many beautiful  stories and' sayings, and gave it to  Lenohen' to win her from her grief.  Lenchen took the book and began ib  read and to try to forget her trouble.  She had.not read very long when her  eye rested on this beautiful sentence:  "It Is noble to forgive.'.

(  Early "next morning she arose at tho  break of . day, plucked tbe. prettiest  flowers in the garden and made of them  a beautiful bouquet.

J. M.  "The UmbrUla."  Tolstoi's book on the sex question, In  which he advocates -absolute ch-astity,  even at the cost of the gra-dtial disappearance of the human race,' continues  to arouse spirited discussion. "La Revue  Blanche" (Paris) recently asked the  opinion of several prominent Europeans regarding Tolstoi's views. Somo  of the replies are appended. Madame  Judith Gauthier, a retired opera singer  who Is 'now a literary woman, was the  only one to endorse Tolstoi's position. '  Max Nordau���������"Count Leo Tolstoi  preaches absolute chastity. I wonder  i������ he can convince Madame Tolstoi and  tho flne family she* has raised! At all  events, we should congratulate ourselves that his parents-did not share  his opinion. Otherwise we should have  had no 'War and Peace' or 'Anna  Karenina.' . . . Speaking seriously,  lt seems to me that the Ideas of Count  Tolstoi on the marriage question are  absolutely delirious, and delirium can  be diagnosed, but not discussed. It is  useless to defend woman against tho  absurd lucubrations of a sick brain."  Enrico Ferxl of Rome���������"The affirmations of Tolstoi on the sexual question  only confirm Lombroso's theory ot the  degeneracy of genius. Tihe fundamental needs of humanity are bread to  preserve life and love to preserve the  species. To preach absolute chastity  is am absurd as preaohing absolute  fasting. Marriage, whatever Tolstoi  may say, is the ideal state of human  life." >    >     *  Emile Zola���������'The Idea of Tolstoi Is  not new. Marriage Is legalized b/ society, but It exists ln nature without  laws..

Madame Judith Oauthier ��������� "I will  limit my consideration of the problem  to the question of birth. It seems tome  an act of truest wisdom to prevent the  unhapplness of existence, and many  ,wlse men, Including Christ, have Indicated .the path which we have failed to  follow. To give life and then inflict  death would oonstitute the greatest of  crimes, did not nature, ln her search  tor victims, strike with blindness and  unconsciousness' those whom she allures into her snares."  Albert Reville���������'"Pascal said, 'Man is  neither angel nor beast, and the_ man  who wants to be an,; angel plays^the  part ot a beast.' If the hope of a future life Is reasonable, and I believe it  Is, we, may be able'one day. to rise  above the organic conditions of this  mysterious life. But as long as we live  on earth, we are bound to admit the  legitimacy of the acts ,and ���������functions,  ..without which our own life and the life'  of humanity would be Impossible. To  state that marriage Is unchristian, because Christ was not married, Is ab-  _surd. It is.like reasoning that we could  not go to heaven because we travel by  rail and wear trousers,*whereas Christ  did "neither. Christ himself said that  marriage was a holy, and divine institution (Mark x. 2-9).'  An English exchange makes the foi  lowing remaTks with reference to the  Umbrella:  "It   seems   that   the   same   Sherlock  Holmes-like instinct which is prepared  to reconstruct a man's whole mode of  life from a- study of his cigarette end.-  has  now   been brought  to  bear  upon  the umbrella, and  the expert umbrel-  11st  Is  prepared    to    give a complete  character-sketch    of    any    individual,  with  thc principal  events in  his past  and -future history, after a critical survey of his behavior with an umbrella.  For Instance, if a man Is observed carrying an umbrella over a lady's head  ln such a way as to preserve her Bond  street hat from the rain, while, a little  stream  trickles softly down the back  of his own neck,  lt Is pretty safe  to  prophesy that sho Is his Best Girl.   If,  on tho other hand. It Is his own gasometer  whloh   is   kept   dry,   -While   the  trickle Is reserved for the lady, lt is a  safe ithousand-to-three on  that she If  his wife.   When a man carries an umbrella horizontally under his arm, lt is  generally a sign that someone is shortly going to have his, or her, eye put  out.    When  a -brand-new  umbrella is  deposited  with a lot of others ln thc  umbrella-stand 'of   a' club,   lt   Is   frequently %a  sign    that    It  is  about   to  change owners.   There are many other  ways  ln which  the  umbrella may be  taken as an indication either of coming   events  or  of  character,   but   the  Best Girl, who has been   running her  eye over the above, says emphatically  that it Is perfectly absurd to Judge any  average man from his umbrella. When  pressed for a reason she explains sarcastically,   'Because  it  so  seldom  belongs to him!'   And there Is something  'n that."  Seventy-Five St. Louisan Eats  Dirt.

Newest and most singular of St.  Louis sects are the dirt-enters, a  community of seventy-five men and  women whose ' Moses Is William  Windsor. The dirt-eaters take every  dny a spoonful of dirt. Their leader  ���������believes that gilt is necessaiy to every  animal, and that because mankind will  have no dirt in his rood he is subject  to many stomach troubles that no other animal has. So the dirt-eater goes  every day to his little sack of soil. He  plunges a teaspoon ln and brings it  forth heaped with good old earth. He  washes It down with a glass of water,  smacking his lips and blinking his eyes  as though no morsel e'er tickled the  pnlate of man so dollclously as dirt.  Dirt-eating is easy���������when ono Is a  child-or an experienced dlrt-eatcr. At  oil other times it Is hard, and It must  be learned. It Is not easy to forget  that It is dirt. It Is not reassuring, to  think that the particles of dirt ln tho  stomach might cause a thousand diseases now unknown because dirt has  been kept out of the stomach for hundreds and hundreds of years. But after a while the dirt-eater develops his  appetite. He comes to relish his dirt  as a girl loves hor fudge. He carries a  sack of It with him, and whenever he  Is seized <by a feeling that he is getting  away from the*animal plan upon which  he was created, he steps Into a corner  and regales himself with a loaim lunch.  The dirt-eater Is particular, though,  what sort of dirt he eats. He would be  no true epicurean If he were not. This  article of his singular diet Is technically a sand. It comes from the river  bottoms, and Is made up of many little  particles of granite, marble, quartz,  and flint well rounded with age. The  chief dirt-eater has the sand collected  and sterilized, and he distributes lt  among his followers at 2." cents a sack.  The sack Is small, but It holds a good  deal of sand. So that daily dirt-eating  after the St. Louis fashion costs About  10 cents a week.  Dirt-eating in St. Louis Is six months  old, and flourishes like a green *bay  "tree. The chief dirt-eater looks happy  'and. prosperous. Tlie lesser dirt-eaters  have every day a ,keen hunger ,for  their dirt, and - they bring ln their  friends. The dirt-eaters have pretentious quarters. They are up at Eighteenth and Olive streets, in what was  until recently the home of the Merchants' League Club. Here the chief  apostle of dirt-eating, Mr. Windsor,  has offices and a lecture-hall. He receives visitors during the day, and every night he lectures to his" class. lie  has now seventy-five'men'and women  who attend his lectures and eat dirt. ���������  This is an amusing sect, and amuses  no one more" than ��������� its,-founder., , Kris  Kringle himself is'not a more rotund  .nor. more rollicking , character than  Dirt-Eater "Windsor. 'He is fifty. He  Is (bald. Ha.-has the Senator Bill Mason build." He can sit in a chair and  tweedie his thumbs on his-stomach,  which they say is the piece de resistance in happiness. '  -   "Are you the chief dirt-eater?"  "Tes, sir, I'm the chap. I've eaten  my peck a.hundred times oyer. Dirt  is good."  Then he laughs as fat men can  laugh, and brings out* a sack of the  sacred soil.*-       ��������� -���������   -  "Have a dirt-sandwich with me?"  "No,  thanks."    "  "What are you afraid of-^-sandbar in  the stomach?"      v  Then he takes a heaping spoonful  and swallows "'it with that sly wink  with" which a Kentucky colonel take3  his whiskey. He sends a glass of water to chase it, and heave's.a*huge sigh  of content.  The Passing of the Horse.  Very eaily in the develovniiont of  electric traction It was predicted  that > the uso of tho horse would  ultimately decrease und perhaps dls-  appcar." Electric traction hns now,  however, been brought to a high degree of perfection, and yet the noise is  still with us. Notwithstanding this,  statistics show, we are assured editorially by the "EloctTlcal Review" (April  19), that thc horse is going���������slowly,  perhaps, but none the less turely. '  Says this paper:  "Some Interesting statistics lately  published by our lively French contemporary, 'La Locomotion Automobile,' show- that In Europe lhc horse 13  rapidly disappearing in the various  "large cities. For example, In Paris the  total number of horses In 1001, according to a municipal census of theso animals, was 96,098, while this year It Is  only 90,790, a fallllng-off of about six  per cent. In London, In the same  period, the equine population has de-  cieased ten per cent., while In Berlin,  Vienna, nnd even ln St. Petersburg, the  same falllng-off exhibits Itself. This Is"  partly due to tho new trolley-roads,  and very largely to the numerous and  contlnuaJ inctease ln the number of  automobiles used both for pleasure and  ���������business.  "In this country the supersession of  the horse by the trolley-car has been  absolutely astonishing In Its extent.  Probably to-day In New Tork there are  not more than two-thirds as many  horses employed as were used twenty  years ago. So far, the automobile appears to have made no great Inroads  into the horse business, and lt is likely  that the ex-tension of the use of automobiles wini have to wait, upon the  growth of more scientific ideas regarding street-paving and road-making.  However, the decadence of the horse  Is upon us, and his disappearance may  be looked for sooner or later.  "Ah certainly as anything can be  predicted the progress of. engineering  advance will totally extinguish" the  horse as a beast of burden. We may  look forward with certainty and satisfaction to the day when cities at least  ���������will be horseless and when we will be  lemoved from the tyranny of this^nl-  inal, Which has Imposed upon us stone-  Iiaved streets, unending dirt, and, curiously enough, the house-fly���������an Insect  dependent upon the existence of stables  for Its birth and breeding. What the  future of th'e horse will be is hard to  say. It Is likely that horses will continue for centuries to come to be used  as instruments of sport and, pleasure,  hut the day of their emancipation from  aiard labor in the streets and roads is  not fe- distant."

The noise, however, woke the  husband, who grasped his wife's feet,  and both tugged violently,  with such  effect that the poor body was torn in  twain, the'robber going off with the  upper half only. The. rightful husband  carved a body of wood and fastened,it  to his wife's legs, while the other man  completed'his half In a similar manner,, each   addlUon   receiving   life  as  soon'as finished, two women being thus  made out of one.

One  of   the   most  disastrous   earthquakes   of   recent   times   is    that   reported" from   Russian   Transcaucasia.  The   town     of *   Shamaka   has    been  practically    destroyed,    only    a* dozen houses being left .standing, wliile a  ���������population of 25,000 has heen rendered  homeless.    The number ot fatalities is  as yet unknown.. Over' 300 bodies had  ���������been recovered afthe "latest accounts.  To the student ot seismic phenomena,  says   the   San   Francisco   "Chronicle,"  the interesting.arid suggestive feature  In'the Shamaka earthquake is that lt  has  occurred  in  the  neighborhood  of  the  Baku  oil  district���������the'most-productive field in the world, not excepting that of Beaumont, ln Texas.   It Is,  furthermore,   a   section   of. the   world  which 'has hitherto been exempt from  these  phenomena.    The  scientific  enquirer   will     naturally   search    for   a  cause, for cause and effect go together  in  the  scientific   analysis   of  all  phenomena.    Is the great natural oil reservoir tapped hy the oil wells of Baku,  on the shores of the Caspian Sea, located under .the site of Shamaka, and  has the  tremendous  drain  of mineral  oil from the same caused a void, and a  subsequent   shrinkage. In   the   earth'3  crust in that neighborhoo'd?   The enquiry Is not far-fetched.   It is usually  assumed that'water takes the place of'  the oil withdrawn from the measures,  filling the vacuum created by the lat-  ter's withdrawal, but if the water, be-  lngmore tenuous, should'find an Independent   vent   elsewhere,   the  vacuum  created by the draining of the mineral  oil would remain,, and a shrinkage of  "the  unsupported  crust    of    the earth  7would-naturally"follow-sooner-or-later.-  It has been suggested  that the tapping of the oil measures In the southern part of California has relieved the  mineral   oll-bearlng   formations   from  the pressure of the gas created ln them,  and the possible subterranean gas explosions   produced   by   excessive  pressure, and thus removed one of the supposed  causes  of  earthquakes   in  that  section.    There may be nothing in the  theory, but it has .been observed that  the Los Angeles district has been notably exempt from seismic disturbances  since the oil measures were tapped and  vent given  to  the gases generated  in  them.    Likewise, - the   theory  that  the  Shamaka .earthquake  was  due  to  the  drain  on  the  petroleum  reservoirs  In  the Caucasus by the Baku  wells may  be entirely at fault.   But the two phenomena seem to Invite the attention of  tho scientist, and open a new field for  the study of seismic disturbances.  My beloved Prince of the New  Thought���������I have been wondering today If our exchange of gifts seems  as beautiful to you as lt does to  me.

Well, we were just finding a way  to represent the Key (by putting ourselves In touch with the Way Universal), when your mother came  ln and  asked the day of the month, and apologized .for   addressing  us   in   English,  adding   sarcastically   that   she   didn't  speak Christian Science!   Ah, my Own,  I have to vehemently affirm that I am  one with Love Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omnlsclentlflc, every time I think  of your mother.   I begin each day by  treating myself for Love and Non-resistance,   and   yet   I   must   say    your  mother Is without exception the most  antagonistic old party I ever met!

It was useless to retreat across an open  plain, for the horses could go faster  than 'they, while to surrender meant  ft fate but little better or perhaps a  aittle worse than death.

England's Royal Guests  It la expected that more royal personages will be Jn London at the coronation than England has ever before  seen together. When Victoria was  crowned not a European court sent  a representative with rank higher  than' ambassador extraordinary: but  ln *the years between that occasion  and her' Jubilee the Queen fortified  England against another such slight  by becoming grandmother to most of  the ruling monarchs of Europe. The  accommodation at'bo much-royalty is  giving the Royal host some anxious  momenta. London has no such assortment of colossal, royal palaces as most  of the great European capitals. Marlborough House and Buckingham Palace wiii not .lodge comfortably any  save the , privileged close relations of  the King and Queen. It Is said that  a large hotel near Buckingham Palaos  has been taken for the King's guests,  and that several noblemen have placed  their London bouses* -At King Edward's disposal. After the coronation  week many of the royal guests will  visit Windsor and Sandringham, and  certain of the great country homes of  England; so mighty preparations for  elaborate entertaining are being made  throughout the length and breadth of  the land, as well a; in London, and  tha amount of money that will be ..os-  pltably spent during tbe season is beyond ordinary calculation.  Breach of Promise Ethics.  If a man engages himself to marry a "  -woman, and, on the understanding of  that engagement, induces her to aban- .  don, for, perhaps, a lengthy term, ,th������ ',  chief business  of  her llfe���������*-iecurfng ���������������-'  suitable    husband���������and    ffu-beequentiyU ���������  breaks his engagement, he Inflicts Just','  as real a cash wrong as if he had en-. ���������  gaged  her as governess and not paid  her any wages. For a term of perhape _;*  two years, possibly the best years, ot,  her life, he has kept the tiroman from '  the quest of a husband, and).thus ma- '  terially injured her matrimonial pros-'*  pacts.   It is right, therefore, that bm,  should pay compensatIon.-r���������"Bulletta,,,,  8ydney. * -;  >'  15;  M  A West Lambtoa Joke. .:*,  The following Joke (tf It is' one)'  csmes from West Larobton:���������   , ...^   ���������.
