Another chnplcr in the history of  tlie Doukhobors pilgrimage to convi-r!,  the world lms closed, but with tin*  ending, "lo be. continued." On arrival  of the Doukhobor army at MimiPfhi.s'i.  Man., last Friday, they were meL by  Mr, Pedlcy and Speers, who led them  to the skating rink. Tliey formed  outside and sang it psalm, then were  led in prayer by one of their number,  who afterwards addressed the citizens,  asking them to help do something for  .lesu.s by helping them along with  food. Tbey then went inside and weie  interviewed by Mr. Peilley, who tried  to find out the leaders. Many schemes  were tried, hut the DouUiobors were  cunning. At last, Mr. Pedlev peisuaded  tlieni to "pick out one man from ein-h  vilhige to meet him nnd lalk over the  tiiUiatiun. Aliout 2 o'clock Mr. Peilley,  Mr. Speers and live Doukhobors held  a conference in the balcony of llu*  rink, one of the Doukhohors acting as  interpreter. .Speers tried every means  lo find out the real object of llieir  pilgrimage and many and "amusing  were the evasive answers given hy the  Doukhobors... Tbey showed Unit they  were well posted on" current events liy  saying that they wanted lb go soutli  to convert the/ coal.' mineis' in' tin*  recent conl strike. From this interview  it was most apparent that religion was  tint their only object, but thai. the.,  were going to force the government  to give them their'own* laws or they  would tramp to. some olher country,  btiti'its. after .this sliowing.no other  country would have them, Mr. Pedlev  decided they* ,11111st go * buck to their  villages' ariiKstay.'-'thore. Mr'.'.'Pedley.  told ihem .that they "must" prepare to  return the next day. and that be would  go back with them, which seemed to  satisfy lliem temporarily.      -    -  -Next morning they again spread  ahout the town, begging as they did  the day"'before, but gathered back and  Iind their meal at 11 o'clock. Then a  break waa made to move east, when  tliey'discovered that they were confined and could not go. They made a  slight show of forcing their way out,  but were held back by; the police and  kept in until the special train of six  empty coaches and three cars of  Northwest Mounted Police arrived.  Mr. Speers entered the rink and  asked'theni logo quietly to tlit train,  but Zebrotf, who lias been expecting  them ever since their arrival here to  remain firm,.again tried to hold them  together., Mr. Speers grabbed Zehroff.  and- in spite of his struggles and  fighting, ran him outot the rink; and  called to the police to bring the rest.  They went out, but as soon as they  got out they .locked themselves  together by. every man bugging ���������in-  other, making a solid hody of men.  Then the excitement eommeiiced.  The citizens turned iu anil helped  the police, but it was hard work for a  while to get the Doukhobors apart,  taking four or five "men to pull one  Doukhoborfroin this internetted muss.  They had to go, however. Some went  quietly when broken away, while the  majority* fought every inch of the  ground. < The scene was one that has  never been equalleJ in the history of  Canada. A sullen, stubborn mob of  people, fighting fiercely with police  and citizens, not in the usual way of  warfare, hot just to be left alone and  allowed to go on tneir way. One  citizen had an ear nearly bitten off, a  Doukhobor had an ankle broken, and  many other minor mishaps were  reported. A few of the Doukhobors  went to. the coaches alone, but the  majority had to be carried bodily,  dragged, pushed along or loaded in the  wagons of farmers, who had gathered  to see the fight. The latter comse  was bitterly fought by the Doukhobors*  as tbey so seriously ohjected to being  drawn by horses.  The fight in getting the Doukhobors  the one hundred yards from the rink  to the station ended in a victory for  the government forces, but the Doukhobor army again formed for battle  and it wns here that by far the stilfett  fight occurred. The Doukhobois  fought, kicked and clung to everything  they could get hold of, the tailings of  the conches helping them out. It ������*a**  an impossibility for one policeman lo  lead a Doukhobor, some taking as  many as five or six, and then club*  had to be used to make them loose  their hold, but as soon as club hed off  atone   place   they   caught, at another  and inobt bitterly contested every inch  of the way. The Donkhohoi-s were by  far the heaviest build and they useii  eveiy ounce of their immense bulk to  ndvai tige. * .

It is wrong to look upon everything  ve suffer as a*n.evil. The chastening of  Cod is a manifestation of His love,  strange aa ti.it statement may seem to  oa. It means thnt He is ever mindful of  our future as well a* sg our present welfare.  This is expressed ia thc eleventh vers*  mi the same chapter:���������"Now no chastening for the present sccmcth to be joy-  ~ :pus, but  grievous;   aevertheless,  aftcr-  -fward it yieldeth tha peaceable fruit of  ���������righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby."

Everyday life illustrates this  truth. Children are going daily to school  =������_nd weekly to Sabbath school to be  trained.   Sometimes this iastruetion and  - ' discipline  aro painfal to the child, yet  *���������     "vi all realize how Motssary is this free-  tag from the errors ei ignorance, thia  refining o{_.charactex and    this enrichment of the mind.   In this process oc-  -easional chastisement play be required  to train or chasten the child, but  "chasten" is wholly corrective; it should  be used exclusively in the spiritual  'aenso: and chiefly of the .visitation of  .God.

We must realize that at  ���������>-t"his stage the child begins to receive its  snbral- training,���������which ���������is-one���������of���������the-  7 most difficult periods of human development.    A little later in life comes the  -intellectual training.'to which fortunate  children  devote    most    of their  youth,  yet  it  is   not   always  a  pleasure,   day  ;after day, to go with'an armful of books  jto  recite    to  teachers who    are severe  _������ad exacting.

We have mourned the dead  Queen, whom we regarded as a mother  while she lived. She has gone to rest  with the mighty dead, adding to their  long roll of names the most noble and  revered. Now by virtue of your succession you are our King and our  father.  Hear, O Sire, this is our word and  pledge : To the Throne we will ever be  true, for;did not your children discover  long ago in the years of the great Queen  that under her benign rule all her subjects had equal rights nnd protection?  To the service of the empire we dedicate  ourselves, for would not our beat out of  the few we are now be fighting shoulder  to shoulder with our white brothers  against the nation's foes had your Majesty permitted ? Since, however, tho  policy of your Majesty's Government  prevented our proving by active service  thc depth_of our loyalty, we ask your  Majesty to be assured that our hearts  are true to our King, and that his foe?  are our foes. We cannot see you in  person, as we so strongly desire ; yet we  have seen you In the person of our  Prince, your royal son, whose passing  through our midst will ever be Irea.-ure 1  as the memorable event of our lives.  From him we were pleased to hear of  your Majesty's message to us, your  Maori .children, and to whom we tendered our especial regards for your Majesty.  The occasion which calls the world to  do he.ior to your"Majesty inspires us to  repeat those sentiments which your  Princely son has already borne to you.  and mayhap in the universal acclaim of  many voices' that of your Maori pcopls  seems small and weak. Your Majesty  will know that our hearts are big with  love for you. To us it is enough that  we have spoken.

The Rabin and tlio Ila.vk.  It is well known that the hawk, no  matter how fierce and big he may be,  has no terror for the kingbird. It is a  common sight in the springtime, when  they ure breeding, to see one of these  plucky little chaps mercilessly following,  pecking and driving away u great oird  of prey a dozen times its size. A merchant who was camping out on tho  Chelsea Hills, says a Lachine correspondent oi The New York Sun, learned  that the kingbird is not tho only small  bird bold enough to attack and drive  away the robbers of the air.  The man was approaching a farmyard  one morning for his supply of milk,  when a commotion among the poultry  drew his attention to a large hen-hawk  which was sailing away with a good-  sized chicken in its talons. The poor'  old hen waa doing its best to prevent  the raid. With much squalling she ran  along, and tried to use her clumsf wings  in flight after the thief.  Just as the hawk rose to the level  of ths treotops a robin, whion i*ad evidently been taking measures to assist  the hen mother, sprang from a limb  right atop of the hawk, with a shrill  ory of rage. So fiercely did the game  redbreast use its sturdy bill -upon the  hawk's back, at times even alighting  upon it to peck to better advantage,  that after a good deal of manoeuvring,  finding it impossible to escape this persistent foe, it dropped its prey and  turned upon the robin. ��������� But the brave  little bird waa by no means lighting for  fighting's sake, and as soon as the chicken had been restored to its mother"  darted back to its tree, ar.d began a.  song of rejoicing.

By far the best advertised boarding-  house is the United States, says tho  Washington correspondent of The New  York Evening Post, ia that whioh Dr.  H. W. Wiley, chief of the division of  chemistry, of the Department of Agriculture, will open in the fall, under  authority of.an act of Congress, for tha  purpose of testing the effect of various  preservatives, coloring substances, and  other food admixtures upon persons in  health. Obviously, the boarders aro  the most important element in a board-  ing-houM. D������. Wiley will procure tho  most intelligent persons that he can  find for his tables, two ia number,, aad  accommodating about six persons each.  Young men In tho scientific bureaus ol  the Agricultural Department will be enlistee, first, and after them the resident  collego students of tha city. These  tables will be kept up many months,  and perhaps years.  The necessity of having men whoso  observations-would be intelligent, men  with power to.express with some accuracy theii feelings and sensations so  that these could be understood, Is most  manifest. Each boarder will keep a  diary and ��������� record all sorts of- facts concerning himself. He will have to give  his word of honor that ho will eat no-  thing anywhere else, and that he will  eat what Is* set before him, in accordance with the scriptural injunction; asking no questions for conscience's sake.  But only a small part of the information will como from the records of the  men thcmselveB. By devices fully understood in the medical profession, it is  possible to tell something of the thoroughness with which digestion has  taken place, and to what extent it has  been retarded, if at all, presumably by  unnatural influences.  Every boarder will be weighed upon  rising from bed in the morning. The  clinical thermometer will three times  measure his temperature for record. A  careful account of water: consumed will  be kopt, as well as of tho food itself.  The boarders will have no knowledge of  whon different things are being "tried  on them"; for at least half, tho tiina  they will be eating a diet whieh is  thoroughly pure���������a relaxation diet. The  object of this will be not only to*'pro-  vent the system from real injury, but  also to tell how far into a period of  normal conditions the effects of former  harmful ones may persist. At each meal  some men will be eating doctored food  and some pure food, but they will not  know which is which. The quantities of  adulterants: employed will nowhere be  perceptible to the senses, although when  it comes to coloring matters this rule  may not be so easily maintained.  The persons who will apply the preservative for these experimental tables  will be experts, and the quantity employed lo each instance will bo measured to a nicety. Detailed effects toward  which the inquiry will be directed will  concern various organs of - the body,  and known constitutional tendencies towards certain diseases." Salicylic acid,  for example, will be put through all  tho tests which, in the commercial movement of food, it is ever likely to make  on the physical systems ef American  consumers. Then" the tabulated re3ult3  will throw light upon the degrees of  danger and of the limits of safety, if  any, in the use of this acid'.

An attempt will he made to keep the  boarders at the samo weight during  their entire stay at the table, as any  fluctuations in this respect might add a  confusing element to tbe results. When  it is discovered from the daily weighing that a man is gaining a little his*  ration will be so adjusted in its fat-  producing elements that this tendency  will*, be corrected, and; the food will at  all times be so generally wholesome and  appetizing-that no one in ordinary  healt h "need exp""ct"t6-l"<?s"_rweiglitr~=ii"  Di>.

Under the heavy burden of her years  Miss Livingstone's faculties are fast  giving way, and she is in a"very, feeble  condiiion. Her hearing, which was not  good seven years ago, has now completely gone, while hex memory Is also failing.  Dr. Livingstone, who was born eighteen years after his cousin, and whom  she has now survived by 20 years, paid  an occasional visit to Fishnish. Once ho  presented Miss Kate Livingstone with a  handsome silver brooch, inscribed . with  her name, by which she set great store.  Of late years she often expressed fear  that through failing memory she might  put this keepsake into some receptacle  and forget its whereabouts.

I do not doubt the  stories, as I have lived in ^Nebraska,  which produces some extraordinary corn.  But I have never seen anything in the  growing line that compares with the"  Nebraska asparagus.  "Last summer I operated a farm In  Wahoo, near the Platte River, and my  principal crop was asparagus, I had  occasion to raise my farmhouse, for the  purpose of building a cyclone cellar, and  conceived the idea of using asparagus  stalks instead of jackscrews. So X selected four of my TM-st bulbs, and planted them under, thi* four corners of ; the  house. About 8 o'clock the next morning (I sleep' late) I was awakened by  my wife, who cried out in alarm that  the'��������� house ".was turning over; Hastily  dressing, I went outdoors, and soon located the trouble. The two asparagus  buibs on the cast side of the house had  caught the sun first and broken through  the ground, and wore rising fast. I  called my men, and by feeding fertilizer  and water to the other pair of bulbs 1  managed to keep the. hous*. from can-  sizing. Presently the southwest bulb  caught the sun, and that end began'to  rise. Later in the afternoon the northwest bulti got the sun, und hy night a  decent  average Imd  been struck.

Commenting upon the resolution of  the Imperial conference relating to the  adoption of the metric system, iir. Harold Cox has written au interesting letter  to The Times, in the course of which he  says :���������The average Englishman appears to imagine that the metric .system consists of a formidable list of  Greek and Latin names invented b.y  French revolutionaries., This belief is  so strong that the most common objection urged agaiust the metric system is  tho difficulty of getting the mass of people to use names that are foreign to  tbem'-and convey no association to their  minds. It is, therefore, of utmost importance that the following.facts should  be generally known. In almost every  country where the metric system haft  been effectively introduced the nomenclature has been adapted to the traditional usages of the. country. -This is  true even of Frnnce herself. Not even  tho all-pervading power of the French  Government could compel -��������� the French  citizen,to forsake the livre of his fathers  and talk about kilograms'; After more  than a generation of struggle, the simple  device was adopted of defining the livre  as half a kilogram, and the work was  done. To-day the word livre is constantly used all over France, but everybody knows that a livre is exactly 500  grams, or half of one kilogram. ��������� The  advantages of this recognition of a traditional, name are practical as well as sentimental. In France, as well as in England, a very common weight is a quarter  of a pound. ��������� But transpose that phrase  into "an eighth of a kilo" and the untrained brain is immediately oonfuscd.  This step, that France took after  much floundering, was taken in Germany  long before any general attempt was  mado to introduce the metric system.  .When ths zollverein was established the  pfund was made exactly equal to half a  kilo, and thus the way was prepared  for the rest of the metric system. I  was informed that throughout Germany  thc word pfund is universally used in  preference to halb-ki'.o.  The moral is that before attempting  to make the use of the metric system  compulsory wo must show how the system can be fitted in with the traditional  usages of the English people. Happily  this is not difficult. Certain English  weights and measures approximate very  closely to convenient metric equivalents.  The pound avoirdupois is very -nearly  equal to half a kilo, the cwt. to 50 kilos,  the ton to 1,000 kilos." Foreign usage  has already familiarized us with the  phrase "metric ton,'" we also need'  "metric cwt." and "metric pound.". By.  ihtroducing^these--namos���������we���������give���������tho-  mind something to take hold of. "Metric pound" at once suggests a weight liko  a pound, whereas kilogram suggests nothing at all. - Other links that might  be used with advantage are the metric  inch (25 millimetres), the metric hand  (10 centimetresl. the metric chain (20  metres), the metric pint (one-half litre),  the metric gallon (five litres).  I do not suggest that the use of these  or any other names .should for the present be made comi-'ilsory. _ _My proposal  is that in order to facilitate the introduction of the metric -system these  names should at once he given a precise legal value. Even in the present  session it might be possible to pass a  simple declaratory act providing that  wherever the phrase "metric pound" is  v.sed in n contract of sale it snail mean  500 grams, and so-on.  The second lesson to be drawn from  the experience of other countries is that  decimal coinage must precede the introduction of the metric system.      It will  be found that no country, has yet adopted  the metric system. without first adopting decimal coinage.     The reason is  that one of the main advantages of the  metric system is the decimal relationship  between the principal units.*    That advantage i������ greatly impaired if the coinage is not also decimal.-    On this point  I recent^- received an instructive letter  from  .1  firm, of electricians.      They informed  me that they had  tried to employ the metric system in taking stock,  but  had  found   that  thc    necessity    of  working out prices lo shillings and pence  destroyed the whole value of the change.  Here, again, thc  difTiculty of reform  is  not  so great  as  has  been represented.  In   the   sovereign   we   have   a   unit   of  value which  is  recognized   all  over  the  world.1     It is already divided  into  ten  florins.     Thc whole reform we have to  accomplish   is  to  divide  the  florin  into  100 farthings^lnstcad of 00.      The shilling would still remain.      The only real  change involved is a reduction of 4 per  cent, in tho value of the penny, making  23 pence instead of,2t pence to the florin.      Until we find a Chancellor of the  Exchequer  strong    enough     to  grapple  with this tremendous difiiculty, we shall  not get decimal coinage, nor the metric  6ystem.     Tho whole problem turns upon  the penny.  THE "WHITE'DEATH!'  CTli*  TerrlWo  Frozen    I'oc of Mia   BoofcJ  Mountains  Of all the natural phenomena peculiar to the Rocky Mountain region  ���������hone is more strange or terrible than  the mysterious: storm . known . to the  Indians as "the white death." Sclen-  'tiflc men have never yet had an opportunity of Investigating It, because  lt comes at the most unexpected  times and may keep away from a certain locality, for years. Well-read  men who have been through it say  that .it is really a frozen fog. But  ���������where the fog comes from is more  than any one can say.';..'��������� This phenomenon occurs most frequently In  the northern part of. Colorado, in  Wyoming, and occasionally in Montana.  Will Sparks, writing ln Alnslle'8  Magazine of this singular phenomenon, tells this- authentic story of It:  "About two years ago a party of  three women and two men were crossing North Park In a wagon in February. The sir was bitterly cold, but  -dry as a bone and motionless. The  sun shone with almost startling brll*>  llancy. As tho five peoplo drove along  over the crisp snow they did not ex*,  perienco the least cold, but really  felt most comfortable, and rather enjoyed the trip. Mountain peaks fifty  miles away could be seen as. distinctly as the pine trees by the roadside.  "Suddenly one ot the women put  her. hand up to her facB and remarked  that something had stung her. Then  other members of the party, did tbe  same thing, although not a sign-ot an  insect could be seen. All marveled  greatly at tbis. A moment later they  noticed that the distant mountains  were disappearing behind a cloud of  mist. "Mist in Colorado in February!  Surely there must be some mistake.  But there was no mistake, because  within ten minutes a geutlc wind began to blow and thc air became filled  with fine particles of something that  scintillated like diamond' dust in the  sunshine. Still the people drove on  /until they came,to a cabin where a  man signaled to them to stop. With  his head tied up In a bundle of mufflers, he rushed out and handed the  driver a piece of paper on which was,  written: 'Come Into thc bouse quiclc,  /or this storm will kill all' of you.  Don't! talk  outside  here.'  "Of course no time was lost in getting under cover and putting the  horses in tho stables. But they were  a little late, for ln less than an hour  the whole party was sick with violent  coughs and fever. Before the next  morning one of the women died with  all tha symptoms of pneumonia. - The  others were violently 111 ot lt, bu;  /managed to pull through after long  'sickness.  )." T seen you people driving along  tho road long before you got  'ito my house, and I knowed you  didn't know' what you 1 were drlvin'  [through,' said the man, as soon as  [the surviving - members - of the party  -.were able 'to talk. 'That stuff ye  '.ceen ln the air is. small pieces of-ice,  froze so cold It goes" clear down Into  your lungs without melting. If any  man stayed out a few hours without  vhis head covered up he would be sure  rD die. One winter about eight years  ago lt cleaned out a whole Indian  (trlbe across the Wyoming line.

In th* thirteenth article in the series  on the national debts    of the    world,  I which is published in the September  number of The North American Review,  Maggior.no Ferraris, a" member of the  Italian Chamber, gives an    account mt  ["The Public Debt of Italy." In summing up, Signor Ferraris says :���������'Italy  was gradually progressing between 1870  and 1880, when a period of unprecedented financial and economic folly set in, la  the years 1881-1803. - But the inevitable  reaction soon began; two different' Ministers of Knanee, Luzzatti in 1801 and  Sonnino in 1804, began a sound policy  of retrenchment, and laid the foundation  of the present improved financial situation. Public expenditure and public  works were largely eut down, new taxation was firmly imposed, the budget  was restored to order, and began to present increasing surpluses up to last year.  As a natural consequence the increase  of the public debt has been stopped, and  even a certain annual reduction, especially in tlio floating debt, has been operated. .Meanwhile, some- attempts were  made' to ��������� strengthen, and improve tho  financial condition of Provinces and  municipalities; but many' reforms havo  yet to be adopted in this field. ��������� Notwith-,  Btan'ding a largo number of labor disputes belween masters and workmen, especially in the agricultural districts, notwithstanding the growth of a socialistio  party, Italy enjoys at present a period of -  sound national finance and ��������� economy.  Wealth is progressing and" accumulating, wages are improving, though the  Biipply of labor, especially in agricultural districts and with the middle claseee,  is in excess of thc demand." -  .

He would  have liked,to do some great service tor  her, not to win'her notice, but because  of the warmth thero would be In his  heart only to feel that he had done It.  Something about her���������perhaps the expression of her eyes, or the way that  her bright hair waved back from her  forehead���������reminded* him'ol a woman  ���������who had once been supreme In beauty:  a dead woman whose words-had sent  him tramping:, almost penniless and  through bitter hardships, hundreds of  miles on the way to England.  A girl and a man sitting* directly ta  front of him were talking of Winifred  Gray, and Hope Newcome listened with  Interest. If they had spoken evil of  tier he would certainly have Inflicted  summary punishment upon the man.  "but they'had only good things to say.

But Newcome did not even see them.  JJThe man who had'* been talking with  'the cab-driver had now clir. d up on  the seat beside' him, -whi ���������., having  turned up the collar of 'liisi light over-  ooat and pulled _hls round black hat  somewhat down over his eyes, he sat  ���������".silently with arms folded.

"Well, I just thou.ut I'd mention, lt,  that's all," drawled Newcome, speaking" for the first time, with a pronounced-Yankee accent. "And see here,  I haven't got much time^to spare for  you. How long are you'going to take  about getting down?"    ;- -  "Do you._want me to call the police  and recommend them to pack you off  to Bedlam?" demanded the man by the  driver. ~  "You can do as you like about tlhat,"'  said Newcome,  thiough his nose,' "after you've come down oft your perch."  Mrs. Peter Carlton had driven away,  and the pretty girls had gone, and the  crowd that was left threw Itself heart  and soul Into the scene.    Nobody had  interfered as yet; for It appeared to all  that  under   tre   badinage    there   was  more than'inet t.."e eye or ear.

"Are you feeling-worse, dearest?" she asked, tenderly, her eyes on the face, which was  of so pure and transparent a pallor  that lt often reminded the girl of alabaster, through which light shone  clearly.  "Not quite so well as sometimes, perhaps, but nothing for you to worry  about," the answer came soothingly.  "What do you think Is in that chafing-  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 tabic, stood  the smart silver chafing-dish in which  some dainty was always prepared by  her mother's own hands for her homecoming. The one servant was sent to  bed early, and It was, Mrs. Gray's 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  ���������with a few pretty plates and bits of  glass and stiver, looked;oddly pathetic  to Winifred to-night, and a sensation  of choking contracted her throat.  "I can't guess, and I can't eat, mother-kin," she said, "until you tell -me  what Is wrong. There's something, I  know."  ."I���������couldn't you wait for all that until you've had your supper, dear?"  pleaded Mrs. Gray. "I've taken such  pains with It." It's sweetbreads, done  in a n*ew way. And there's a steaming  hot cup of chocolate���������for the night  seemed so chilly."  Winifred shivered slightly, but not  -with cold. Lionel Macalre had made  Bier, drink chocolate. She thought that  she could never bear to touch it again,  but,, still les3, could- She- grieve-*her  mother. So she took oft her hat and  gloves and sat down at the table, trying to smile, praising the sweetbreads,  and reluctantly sipping the chocolate,  while '.the weight of presentiment iwas.  coldly heavy on her breast. The worst  of this night was not over yet, something seemed to whlsDer In. her ear.  She must at least make a pretense of  eating now, If she would show appreciation of the Uttle mothe"r'3 thought  for her. By-and-by even that pretense  ���������would be, impossible.  The lump in her throat made lt hard  to erwallow, and a mist of tears dimmed  her eyes, but she would not let them  ���������fall. She and her best loved one had  been'so happy, so merry,'ln this little  place. Why need she feel that it was  tall going to end to-night? It was stupid to feel that���������yet the impression  ���������would not pass. -  "- "  When she could make an end of the  feast without seeming ungrateful she  sprang up and pushed away her chair.

Though October",]had-'-not /come yet,  there was 'a glow of dying flre In the  grate���������just enough to give an excuse  for drawing near It, and Winifred  knelt down on the rug, with her arms,  across her mother's knees.  ���������"Now, what Is it, dear?" she asked,  bravely. ."   .  "I'-wish I needn't tell you," tflie elder  drifted down the river with the tlda.  The young man stood atlll, and  looked back with a strange, new ache  ln his heart, at the London that he had  left, Its buildings stately, almost repel-  lently splendid, silhouetted1 agadnst tho  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 ln Its accomplishment as flie moon was from the  Wack water. Yet the water was swift,  and lt caught and held the 'moon's image.  'He was young, and poverty���������even a  knowledge of hunger unsatisfied���������'had  not silenced the high song of his blood,  or chilled Its warmth. H-e did not despair. And though he had' met disappointment to-night, ln seeking the first  round of the ladder, stILI, *he had seen  a .face fair enough to brighten darkness, and he''had had his"wish.

Though Jthey never-**met' again,-she  would not quite, forget. ���������* .' i ,i.  ��������� ������������������*������������������  The thought of home was like balm'  on a -wound to Winifred that - night.  She and her mother had taken a small  flat near Bryanston Square, and .when  the hansom stopped before .the door of  Bryancourt Mansions, the girl looked  up to the lighted windows as she might  have looked for a star.  Her mother knew the time .when sha  was to be expected back from bhe .theater to the moment, and never missed  hearing tha roll of the cab-wheels, the  clatter of bhe horse's feet in stopping  et the pavement. By the time that  Winifred was half-way up the third  and la. t flight of stairs, bhe door of  the flat -was open, and the little mother  smiling la the light that streamed out  to gladden "Winnie's" eyes.  To-night, lt seemed a bad omen to  the girl bhat the 0 .-awing-room wln-  .dows with their, red silk shades should  glow tout faintly, and the door be shut.  The maid had the latchkey In the tiny  black bag which c ntalned her mistress's few bits of j<-welry, and used lt  for almost the first time since the flat  bad been home to the young actress.  CHAPTER VIL  In Twos and Threes.  Winifred ran'"quickly in,-leaving her  maid to fasten the door of bhe fiat, and  It was a great relief to see her mother's small, thin figure appear at tha  drawing-room door.  * "Winnie, darling, I didn't know.you'd  oome. I'm so sorry," cried the voice  tfhat had always been to Winifred the  sweetest In the world. "I heard a cab,  but lt was like a jingling hansom. I  was sure it' ���������>'  *-,n'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.

She let Newcome help her Into the  hansom, but It was the maid who told  the new cabman where toi drive. Then,  with a smile snd 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 slh*������ lived, or  was there something more? Was he  doing it on 'his own,' or was there  someone else behind him? Well, anyhow, whatever it was.

Wbo would  imagine that thero was anything  about the clothespin that was worth  finding out? The writer was passing  a little grocery where a box of  clothespins was among tho things  displayed outside.  ���������-   "How much  for    clothespins?"    he  asked of thc grocer,  s,  "Four cents,"  was the reply.

I've made mora  than a million  of 'em!"  replied  the  storekeeper.       "I've     followed     tho  clothespin, sir, in all the processes of  its evolution,  from the growing tree  to the polishing box.   Say!" exclaim-  ���������;c;d the dealer, "to   look at that   pin  you'd scarcely believe that the manu-  ' C&cturer could make and  sell twelve  cjt them for a cent, and have a profit  of more than fifty per cent, at that,  -.would you?  "But he can do lt.   He can whittle?  out clothespins at the rate of eighty  ���������a minute.    How? Easy enough.    All  he's got to do Is to take his maple or  . birch log and go to work.

That log will whittle up  into 12,000  clothespins.      It will take the   man  two hours and a half to    chew that  log up into clothespins, which  Is at  ].the rate of 4,800 au hour., .But when  ' they are all cut out they are worth  $96.40 to   the maker.     He will work  ten hours a day if he is smart, and  will get away with four ot these logs.

One of tho queerest places ln Greater  New York is a little undertaker shop In  Mulberry Bend, where second-hand  cbilins are kept. Its owner does a  thriving business among the poor Italians of that section, and the same coffln often does duty on many occasions.

The Monk's Knowledge of  Women.  ���������S7T N Interesting story comes rrom the  II 'French''Alps of Dauphiny reUt-  JA Ing the futile- .tforta ot the Princess of Croy, who desired to eater the monastery of the Grande Chartreuse, a habitation froni which women  visitors are rigidly excluded.  The story runs that the Princess  dressed herself ln boy's clothes and accompanied her husband to the Institution. The sates were opened to them,  and thc Prince sent his card to the  father superior, with a line to the effect that he was nocompanled by a  frUnd.  Jbst as they were about to make the  rottftd of the building the word was received that the father would like to see  the Prlncs and "his friend." Going upstairs they were received by the smiling monk, who cordi'hjly Invited them  t������ join him In an appetizing luncheon.  Tbe Princess endeavored to make the  bent of the situation, but she was not  put any the mora at har ease by the  fact that the monk kept gazing sharply  at her.  At last ht exclaimed suddenly:  "Catch It, young man!" at the same  time throwing at her a large pear. The  Princess was startled, and, thrown  compleUly off her guard, made a motion I. grab up her skirt, the absence of  which she overlooked In her confusion.  Then tha father stopped smiling and  ���������aid with great gravity:  "I beg your pardon, madam, but ladles are not allowed in the monastery,  I must ask you to wait outside until  ���������the Prince has finished his Inspection."  And outside she had to go, tbe reverend father bowing her from the room  with most elaborate politeness.  LEGAL  The Democracy of Children.  O*  NE   amusing  trait  In  children  Is  their   .'unconscious     democracy.  They  are   nearly  always   democratic   when   permitted   any   latitude.  The desire for playmates levels sense  ot caste,   It any  exists. '.On   a   street  through which I often pass there Is a  ������*ocerle of children who blend with the  most fehoi-ough harmony, although they  are of quite different social strata. One  mt the boys la a "smart" young gentleman ' in   knickerbockers,   always ' well  groomed; another is a little Italian; a  third,   the   thin,   restless,   wide  awali  son of a housekeeper.   One of the lltt  girls Is a negress, with her woolly ha  nlaudlng, out  fro.,    her  head  in   thli  curved-up tails.   Siie Is quite a belle I  this "mixed" company.���������Harper's "at  xmr."

I  / v^ij" y ���������j.M^ryr**^*"** w������  /  V?  VI  Lord Kitchener is tt much maligned  man. says a writer in a contemporary.  His strength of character, firmness of  will, and piercing eye have impreosed  less resolute mortals wilh the idea  that he is wanting in common human-  it 5*. When the enemies of Great  Britain, whether domestic or foreign,  talk of his brutality, we''can only  remember that the same characterization has been freely bestowed upon  Mr. Bnlfour, the gentlest of men.  That Loid Kitchener is a terror to the  incompetent and indifferent who have  vital diitiea to perform is certain and  it is quite conceivable lhat the news  of his departure from England to take  up the chief commaud in India will  not have been heard unmoved, by  some of the easy going ones who will  serve under him. Theie must be no  slackness where Lord Kitchener .* is  responsible: "We hear stories of the  way he impressed the-sheiks of the  Soudan by a "sublime confidence in  himself,", which suggested "a .consciousness that he had some mysterious  and mighty power behind him"; we  hear of the Boer 'Delilah who hoped to  get into his confidence in the interests  of''her fighting compatriots, only to  retreat from his presence cowed by an  overpowering sense of the man's  superiority to all the wiles of feminine  *treachery; we hear of the general  officer who having promised Lord  Roberts that a certain thing should be  done, if possible,-in a fortnight, met  Lord Kitchener, and was told that if it  .were not done in a week he would.be  sent home. Uis laconic announcement that the bag of Boers in a week  were so many, as though the-war were  a mere matter of sport,'was a"'shock  to the * conscience bred of ' Bouverie  , street. Such things went to form the  opinion of the man in the street, who  could only thank his lucky stars that  the empire had* such a servant and  that he was not called upon to have  direct dealings with him.'  But is Lord Kitchener heartless?  None who know him, unless he has  reason to regard them as enemies,  .would dream of subscribing.-to an  affirmative response.- His public work  supplies emphatic testimony to the  contrary.. -The. . Gordon college at  Khartoum, the concentration camps  in South Africa, the Vereeniging  conference, and the 'appeals he has  made to employers at home to remember, .the  returned  soldier,   in     their  different ways reveal a nature instinct  , -,.    -     .*.     "- . . . 't^.   ..    -   .  \  .with   generous   thought   and   kindly  purpose. His tenderness to the wound-  ���������    r ���������       -     ,       ���������  r . ���������������������������.    -.1 .    -  ed is not  generally   known.   He does  not court* the apotheosis of the picture  paper. One'instance will. suffice,to  snow how he does" Christian things  which are heard of . only' by those  affected. A young'officer in Pretoria  was'getting convalescent* when Lord  ^_Kitchener,_who_knew_nothingof_him,_  came to his bedside and asked "where  he was wounded and how he was  getting along. " "All you want now is  fresh air," Lord Kitchener is reported  by the young- ollicer himself "to have  said; "my carriage shall eall for you in  -the morning,", and,'Lord Kitchener,  the story goes,- walked,' whilst his  carriage was' given up to men who  had no other claim on him than that  'of having suffered hurt in the d ischarge  .of their duty. Lord Kitchener is said  never to smile. The thing has been  asserted so often that only a positive  grimace would induce some people'to  believe that be could be moved. At a  recent important function in the city  of London, Lord Kitchener was received with a roar of applause which  might easily have constituted a record.  ��������� ' -��������� *       *    yi  He turned his head from side to side,  v aud acknowledged the compliment  with the pleasantest of smiles. A lady  who was within a yard of him and  watching him closely, whispered to a  -companion: "There now, even that  did not bring a smile!" Her astonishment was no greater than ours that a  superstition so flatly contradicted by  the fact should find, so prompt a  witness. At certain gatherings lately,  it must have \teea a great shock to  some people to find Lord Kitchener  with a lady, on his arm. Is it not well  known that he is a woman hater?  His power of dissembling "his hate  would not be the leant of his accomplishments if the suggestion were  true.  innumerable sketrhes'have made  that  side of liini com mon property.     From  the lime   lhat   he   worked   witli   the  Palestine exploration fund, on through  his connection with tins Cyprus survey  and the Egyptian   troubles,   down   to  the surrender   of   the   Boers,   he   has  shown himself a master oi*gitiiz.*i. He  can Hglit, he can  diplomatise   and   he  can lead; but   gioat   as   his   triumphs  have been in other duet-lions, it   is   in  the evolving  of  a   scheme   and   the  indomitable patience   wilh   which   he  carries it out lhat his  success   mainly  lies. He has been likened to a machine;  the description is not wholly wanting  if we could conceive a machine capable  of working hy ils own  volition.   Lord  Kitchener has been a sort of emergent' v  uian in Africa. He clinched bis chance  at the time   of  the   outbreak   of   thu  Egyptian war in 18S2. by a rush which  is second best to Nelson's blind eye. He  was on leive of absence in Alexandria.  In order that he   might   not   have   lo  depart just when  war was imminent,  he wasted time by sending atelegrapbic  request  lhat    his    leave   should    be  extended.   Tbe war-had begun .before  he got the   reply   recalling   him;* his  knowledge of Arabic made him. invaluable to the British general.  If he had  not so readily detected and so eagetly  grasped his opportunity he might not  have been known totlay as conqueror  alike of the   Khalifa   and   the   Boeis.  Twenty years ago he waa a lieutenant  on lhe   look   out   for   a   chance;   the  rapidity of his rise would have turned  the head of a smaller man.    When the  advance up the Nile began in 1890, few  believed that the final   operations" for  crushing the Khalifa would be left to  Sir  Herbert   Kitchener;   when   Loid  Roberts gave up the reins at  Pretoria  in November, 1000," there   were   many  who thought that Lord Kitchener for  a variety of reasons could not be left in  cbaige.    In the Soudan he   conquered  with the railway,   every   length   laid"  being   literally   another   nail   in 'the  Khalifa's "coffln; in   South   Africa' he  achieved a similar end with the aid of  the   blockhouse     Military   operations  were simplified in the one   case  as" in  the other by* mechanical contrivance.  In   India  th'e   scientific   north    west  frontier is   likely   to   be   made   more  scientific still __ when   Lord   Kitchener,  is its'wardeti".' His powers ofjbrgnuiz.i-  tion. were, thought   to   have   shown  themselves in the Soudan; as a .matter  of fact the long preparation for restoring the authority, of E_jypt   was   an  ordinary matter  compared   with   the  task which faced Lord Kitchener when  he took oyer the   command   in   South  Africa.   As was said.by   a  competent  judge a few   months   ago,   when   one  endeavors - to  even' recapitulate    the  headings of the work accomplished by  Lord  Kitchensr   between   November.  1900, and'May, 1902, one must  be lost  in admiration  of   the-'administrative  and organizing powers of the man.   In  that time he not only successfully conducted military operations of   a   most  complex character and on  the largest  scale, over a huge area"^f"c"ou."ntry7but"  he had actually'to train many, of  tbe  mer. sent out by . the   war  office   and  '.'.'in addition��������� with the aid, of course,  of Lord Milner���������to deal .with innumerable   subsidiary . questions    ot    vast  magnitude, for example, the care and  feeding of tens of thousands of women  and children in the concentration camps  thecreationofaconstabuliiry the admin  istration of military and  martial law  over the   immense   territories in military occupation, the intricate problem  of   native_ labor,  the management of  the railways, the return nf the loyalist  population driven  out by the Boers nt  the   commencement of  the war, and  the   resumption of  the   gold   mining  industry."     In Lord Kitchener, India  will   have a  commander in chief  as  resourceful,   as    energetic,     and    as  independent  of  custom   held   sacred  only   by   red   tape   as, is the viceroy  himself.  , GO TO THE  REVELSTOKE    AIRY  FOR  Pure Milk  C.

It'  '"was supplied with breathing holes and  jthe express agents were instructed to  ."pour water Into an aperture containing a receptacle inside to receive it.

The gang went into a deep canyon  fin the side of which was the entrance  Mo a cave which proved to be the re-  Jtreat of a band of robbers. In this  \ssr,a the boy, whom his captors named  ���������*nw*rge, 'waa kept in captivity for a  ) lumber ot years, being treated as a  .Alave and employed in doing all sorts  i^J menial labor for his captors.

Over twenty years ago an  obscure horse in California named Occident showed such wonderful speed  .that Governoi���������Califbrnlans always  called him Governor���������Stanford paid a  high price tor him, this being his first  notable purchase. So high were tho  pretensions of the "dark horse" that  his first race was against Uie queen of  tho turf, Goldsmith Maid. He. was  unsuccessful in racing, but In 3573 ho  lowered the world's record to 2:167.,  unci thus, in bis first purchaso, "the  Governor" picked a record breaker.  Later upon this horse his theory of  training was first tried.  In 1878 the trotllug department at  Palo Alto had assumed serious proportions, and Governor Stanford decided  to engage a trainer, selecting Charles  Marvin, who had already earned a  great reputation with the famous  Smuggler, with.which horse he had  not only captured the stallion record,  but had vanquished the almost invincible Goldsmith Maid. "The Governor" explained to his trainer his  theory and instructed him to train Occident and also the fast Abe Edding-  ton accordingly. The old plan ot  working horses mile after mile ln a  drilling way Mr. Stanford did. not believe ln. His idea was that the better  way to develop a high rate of speed  was to drive the horse at short, sharp  dashes or brushes, never over a quarter of a mile at first, nearly up to his  limit, and never to work him enough  to Jade, tire or discourage him. Speed  being the thing most necessary in  racing the master of Palo Alto "contended that the rational way was to  educate the horse to trot fast first and  then to condition him to sustain his  speed through a race.  The trainer undertook "to follow Instructions, with many misgivings, and  it Is not strange that the plan, being a  new -thing to him as it was to the  horses, brought at first only failure  and discouragement, and Mr. Marvin  was often anxious to return to tho old-  fashioned way, but "the Governor's"  faith "knew no variableness nor shadow of turning." He saw that to carry  out his plan - successfully tralnerB as  well as horses must be educated ln the  new idea, and he insisted upon perseverance in. his system. Marvin persevered, and ln timo he was able to  say that it was "not necessary to seek  any explanation of the first successful  experiments other than that I waa  working a system I did., not understand  at firit now to apply with proper judgment." He might, perhaps, also'have  added that two "outclassed" trotters  .that had been drummed stale were not  the best sort 6rspe"cimfl.ns to begin on.  To-day almost every leading trainer  has modified his methods ln the direction adopted at Talo Alto in 1878.���������  Chicago Times.       - "vU--* *, ~r*~.

"Of the whole number of person**  supposed to dl^of disease," said a  prominent Now xorlc physician recently, "I should say that at least 50 per  cent, aro really carried away by fear.  .Were it not for this element mortality  would be far less than it Is."  In support of his statement he cited  various cases where the element o������  fear had entered largely in as a potent  factor to persuade people that their  time had come. Presentments, prophecies, premonitions and gonoral nervousness all played their part. On tho  other hand, a short time ago a patient  of a Now York hospital was frlghten-  od into getting well. This man wm  brought in an ambulance supposedly  dying from heart failure.  Ho was laid on a tabic and a diagnosis showed him to be suffering from  hysteria. The surgeon turned to ono  of his nssistants and, asking for tt  knife, remarked that he would cut  down to tho heart, and find out what  tho trouble was. The patient gave a  yell, and leaping from the table started tor the door. Remonstrance was in  vain. That man was cured and never  came back.  Sc-mo years ago four criminals, condemned in Russia to die, were taken  to a house and shown several beds, in  whi.oh they were told a number of  cholera patients had died. As a mat-  tor of fact, the beds were new, never  having been slept in. The criminals  were informed that they would be set  at "liberty if they wtuld, undergo the  ordeal of sleeping several nights in  ���������the beds.. From the prisoner's point  .of view it was a possible, though desperate, chance of escape. They one  ������nd all decided to take the chances.  "At the end of tho time prescribed, twa  warm uninjured and went free; but the  others developed all the symptoms and  died of Asiatic cholera.  Two phyalclans determined to take  Advantage of the impressionable mind  of a female patient and prove a theory  for the benefit of science. The lady  had complained of an itching on her  back. She was told that a blister  would be applied. Instead, a common  poBtaga stamp was applied, and, so  runs the chronicle, performed all the  offices of the plaster which was not  there.  A college professor was once the subject of a practical joke at the hands  of the students.

At the time Mr. St'cvenson purchased  his estate in Samoa a writer in .the  I_ondon Hawk, over tho signature of  John o' Dreams, gave the following  fascinating gossip of what he waa  pleased to term a "wild, dainty, unearthly creature."

Let me name one very singular  thing: You cannot remain.long in  Stevenson's company without feeling  like a good man.'You may not be good,  mark you, any more than I am, but  everything that is bad ln you lies low,  and every power that makes for kindness, tenderness, uprightness and  charity, seems as if it must begin to  flourish.

The lato Count de Lesseps was at  one time en-s'aged in a daring and attractive engineering scheme, with'  which the public is not gnnerally familiar. Its object' was to. create a new,  sea and thereby restore to fertility and  civilization a. large part o������ Northern  Africa.  Mr. Max do Forest, now of Nutley,  N. J., a former officer in the French  army, met his famous countryman at  this timo. *    ...  "I met Count de Lessops," he said,  "in 1SS1, at Gabos, In Southern Tunis,  whero I had been ordered with a  squadron of cavalry. Shortly after my  arrival bo came with a surveying'  party to make soundings for.,tho proposed intcrlot sea. I' had orders to  place at his disposal both men and  horses, and the discharge of this duty  brought mo into almost dally communication with him until his departure.  "Tho interior sea at that timo  aroused all bis enthusiasm. He  brought to bear the same persuasivei  powers that ho used when promoting  the Suez and the Panama canals and  enterprises. To sceptics he always  replied: 'It can be done and it will bo  done, if the Government will give mo  the money to do it with.' .  ���������--���������"   - -  "Its proposed area embraced the entire plain lying to the southward of  the boundary line drawn from Gabes,  via Gafsa and Tamerza. The practicability of the scheme was supported  by many facts. , It was proved that  an Inland sea had covered in ancient  times the area which it was Intended  to flood. The level of the land was  generally below that of the Gulf of  Gabes. Innumerable ��������� underground,  streams of fresh and salt water ara  found in the southern part of Algeria  and Tunis.  "The water was to be supplied to the  inland sea from the Gulf of Gabes.  The tides would have a minimum  depth sufficient to allow of the passage in all directions of light boats.  " But the' most valuable result of the  scheme,.it was'held, would be to restore the ancient fertility of the country and to oppose a barrier to the  sirocco, the deadly burning wind  which piles up the desert sand about  the oases and finally buries them.  "M. de LesBepa dwelt on these benefits with boundless enthusiasm and  imagination. Burled cities would be  unearthed and the colosseum of El  Djhem, now a.crumbling ruin, but  once approaching that of Rome in size,  .would be accessible to admiring tourists.  "M. de Lesseps.left the work in tho  hands of the general, staff of the  French army, by whom it is now supposed to be carried on. Whether any  progress is being made- I do not  know." "  Tiny Republlon "ot   tlie World.  'A quaint little Republic came to light  .only recently when the citizens of Andorra boldly threw off the yoke of  tribute to the French. 'Tis true it waa  only the sum of 1200 which they refused to pay; but their action was sufficient to recall from obscurity for a  moment the Liliputian realm nestling  on the heights of"tho Pyrenees. The  vale of Andorra measures less than  eighteen miles in either direction; but  lt Is the home of one of the oldest Republics in the world, the Constitution  of which is four years older, than England's Magna. -Charts.

Tavar-  ola, for Instance, is the smallest Republic on the face of the globe. It occupies an island off the northeast coast  of Sardinia, and comprises fifty-five  people. It enjoys, however, the distinction of equal suffrage. Then there  are Goust, Franceville and San Marino,  all smaller than Andorra. Truly, onen  half of the world knows not the other  half.

A. Laughter-Cure Por Drunkenness.  In a recent lecture at Chicago University, . Professor William N. Guthrie declared that laughter and comedy made ibo made to play an important  part as curative and remedial agents,  even to tho point of protecting humanity  from the liquor habit; Says the Chicago  "News" (July 7), in a report of tho lecture:  "Drunkenness, of course, is due only  In part to discouragement or desperation. But for the considerable number  who drink because they feel dejected  and seek a quick and easy way of throwing off their depression, there is a much  larger number who drink either because  thoy have nothing else to do or because  they crave some excitement to relieve  the monotony of their lives. Drinking  is a great time-consuming habit, and the  man who would shake it off usually finds  that the reform leaveB him with an undue amount of leisure. One chief trouble with the efforts to suppress the evil,  perhaps, is that while tho drinker and  his friends make. brave efforts to stop  the bad habit, they do little or nothing  toward putting a new and whr' **omo  habit in its place. It is in this otage  that his bored feeling and his depression  recur with' neatest effect. Professor  Guthrie's address contains a hint for the  despondent person. Let him surround  himself iwlth* the influences which make  for comedy and laughter. Let him seek  oheery companionship or attend amusing  entertainments. The chances are that  he will And the timo slipping by so  pleasantly, that he has forgotten his depression and much of his craving for artificial excitement. Good fun and good  cookery���������the one to occupy 'the depressed man's' mind and the other to  steady hia nerves���������might be made to do  a great'deal' toward "suppressing the  liquor evil."  That .Professor Guthrio is a. valuable  press agent for the comic opera and  vaudeville companies is asserted by the  Chicago "Record-Herald;" but after following out this light vein for somo time  it becomes more serious  and says: -  "There really is a scientific or physio-  ��������� logical basis for Professor Guthrie's cure  'for alcoholism. Tho general assumption  Is that men resort to alcoholic stimulation to make them feel happier than  ! their normal condition would justify.  "Rey drink to drive nway the 'blues'  and to induce a feeling of temporary  mental elation. If this feeling of mental  buoyancy and cheerfulnoss can be induced by some other means than alco-  holic' stimulants, it is'clearthat the desire for intoxicants will be lessened.  "This is the argument of Professor  Guthrie, and it'seems sound and logical.  .The "horse play' of John Slavin or Montgomery and Stone may not fertilize the  . imind as.does iThe Second Mrs. Tanque-  ray,' but it is more certain to Keeleylzo  the desire for strong drink."   .*    ._ ���������;  Hardships of the Educated.  Expatiating upon the hardships of tho  educated   youth,  a   contemporary   intimates that this is a bad time for the "col-  lego man who goes out into the world to'  find something to do. Taking into consideration the fact that this is what is popularly known as the "silly season," it is  not  surprising   to  find  intimations   of  this haturo in ordinarily sane quarters.  Viewed,    however,  as    a    proposition  worthy  of  serious consideration,  it  is  not difficult to substantiate a claim to  the contrary  effect, and  to say  positively that for the man who is really  educated thero has hover been a time  richer in opportunities  than  this.   .OfL  course   if a man Bpends four years in  college   storing  his  mind   with    useless  knowledge  it is not at all likely tbat  his B.A. will help hiin much in getting  himself    established  in    life,  and  tho  chances are that without material assistance  from    his    parents he would  stand    an      excellent   chance    to    be  reckoned among the idlers..But the other  man,  the  man  who* knows   what "ho  wants to do and fits himself for it, and  is  persistent  and conscientious  in7, his  work, need have no fear that,the world  will be lacking in rowards for him when  the harvest time comes. Tiio melancholy  fact that our colleges are turning: out  sciolists by  the dozens, men who half  know  a  lot  of   tilings   that  havo  no  practical value in tiie pursuit of fame  and fortune, does not alter the other  fact that the well-trained student .who  has  gone  at  his  w.ork  seriously,  and'  with a particular object in view, finds  always a ready market for his energies.  The  whine  that  we get  from the  so-  called "educated" man is not from educated men at all, but from those who  confound thc possession of a, degree with  education; who think that because thoy  have fulfilled the academic requirements  of the college  thoy  are  therefore  edu-"  cated.    Those men maj* possess a vast  amount of information, but they are no  more educated  necessarily than a man  who  possesses a complete' tool-chest  is  by virtue of that possession a good carpenter. - To have tho finest set of tools  in the wbvld is a hollow mockery to the  man  who  does  not.  know how  to  tise  them; and these wailing youngsters who  plunge into the whirl and eddy of life  with a, store of information that they  do not  know how to avail themselves  of.are in an equally sad case.   But the  fault is not witli their times: it is with  themselves���������or   perhaps   with their parents,  who , have  failed - at - the "proper  timo to observe their bent, and to direct  their energies in thc channels most fit  for their fullest development.  ,; What to do With the Jews.  Almost as tenacious and inexplicable  as the racial peculiarities and general characteristics of the Jewish  people themselves are tho prejudices  and antagonisms with respect to  them cherished and often manifested by  other people in various parts of the civilized world. Ono might think that in  our day of tolerant and enlightened  thought, when tho contributions whioh  the Jews have made and are making to  science, literature and art, to industrial  wealth and financial progress, are coming to be recognized at thoir full value,  that at thia time the blind and unreasonable hatred of tho raco wliich formerly obtained would lessen and vanish  away. And so it has, in a groat measure, in most enlightened communities;  in others, it seems to remain in full  force.  Just now a new anti-Jewish movement  seems to be sweeping over parts of Europe, more especially in the East. Fifty  thousand Jews have, it is stated, been  ordered to quit the mining province of  Russia, and to reside within ths pale  after sacrificing their occupations and  their property. In Roumania, also, they  are being forced to emigrate by a series  of laws which practically deprive them  of all means of subsistence. They have  absolutely no rights, and live at the  mercy of a population which hates them  to such a degree that their Parliament  has declared all Jews to be foreigners,  although,.;. they have been resident for  centuries. ' Neither Germany nor, Austria will do anything for them, and it  seems impossible for Western Europe,  which is more tolerant, either to protect  them or to find them a new habitat.  The problem, then, what to do with  the Jews, appears, from a European  point of view at least, to be almost as  insoluble as tha problem of the colored  race in America. One thing seems clear,  that it is not to be solved by wholesale  emigration or colonization, such as the  Zionists propose, any more than the  negro difficulty can be cleared away by  a like process. .The only rational solution now presenting itself in either case,  thinks "Leslie's Weekly," is that lying  tlirough education of the right kind,  through development to a higher, broader, more tolerant and humane plane of  life and-thought for .all classes concerned; a slow process, it_ ia true, but  apparently tho only one that holds out  any promise of success.  Golf and Stained Glass.  The aesthetic portrait painter and  the enthusiastic golfer sat beforo  a blazing wood firo in the loung-  ing-rooru of the country club. Having  nothing in common tliey had tried in  vain to entertain ono another, and wore  now at a conversational standstill.; A  burst of sunlight streaming in through  the stained glass window bathed tho  men and all about them, in a flood of  red, white, blue and yellow, causing both  to look up, and giving the artist an inspiration.  "Did you ever follow up the evolution  of the stained glass window?" he asked.  "No. I can't say that I ever did," replied his, companion, bored but resigned.  "Well, the art in its inception dates'  back to the reign of Caligula, A.D. 37,  but up.to the beginning of the nineteenth century the colors were laid on  with paints for the most part. Sinco  the discovery of the art of staining glass*  by the uso of chomicals while in its molten state, and of other modern processes  used in connection with it, the making  of stained glass has taken tremendous  strides, opening up an entirely now field  for the exorcise of artistic genius which  is being generally taken advantage of.  Por instance "  "No. I never thought of that," interrupted the golfer, "but, you know, tha  game of golf dates back to ��������� - ������������������"  "Oh, golf be hanged!" exclaimed the  artist, impatiently. ,"You don't seem to  think of anything else."  And he went out to admire the beautiful October landscape, while the other  man started to find someone who would  play nine holos with him, muttering us  he walked along: "Golf is a darn sight  better fun than stained glass, anyway."

Commenting , on the. recent" defeat  of. Walter J. Travis, the golf champion, ' by Louis Napoleon James,  the ��������� New 'York "Evening Post" says:  "With all friendly feeling for Mr. .Travis,  most golfers will rejoice in his defeat. It  is'only-human"nature to wish to see a  tradition of invincibility broken, and for  three years past Mr. Travis has been invincible. . He was and is the finest example of what are called the older players���������that is, those who had reached full  maturity before handling the driver or  the iron. -" It was felt, and justly, that  tlie younger' players,' who had learned  their, full swings during the flexible period of boyhood, must very soon'assert  their1 superiority. This has been done  by Mr. James, a Western. player. But  Mr. Travis has not fallen before" demonstrating the'hollowness of several athletic" fallacies. It is "often said that, ath-,  letically, it" is all up with a man beyond'  thirty who "has not previously been* an  athlete. Proverbs to this effect abound.  It is said, for example, that'a man may  ride beyond thirty, but never acquires "a  seat," and in general" the man of thirty  as a'beginner in sports has about tho consideration that Dr. Johnson gave to the  preaching woman. Mr. Travis, by learning a very difficult game, beyond the fa-  ,tdl year, and by, carrying off for three  years running.the championship honors  against all comers, has done much to  commend himself to his contemporaries  ���������even to those .who by no means covet  'distinction on the links.

I'H  they hated evil as i..ey hate ; iu, Mr.  Balfour, my occupation would be gone."  Yet it was Mr. Balfour who a few  years later had accomplished, much toward the pacification of Ireland. His  name became, amusingly prominent in  Irish families. A gentleman driving into  the town of Westport, County Mayo,  was stopped hy a pig which ran in front  of his horse.1' An old peasant shouted  across the ditch to a boy who was  watching the pig stupidly:  - "Arrah, Mick, will ye stir yerselft  Don't ye, see .Arthur James runnin'  away?','* ���������    :  Struck by the name, the gentleman  .asked the old man about it,-~and found  that in gratitude to Mr. Balfour, who  had been the means of getting them the  pig, the peasant had given the animal  his name. ���������      -  , Gentle reader���������as the old-school editorial used to address you���������have you ever,  played checkers with an opponent who,  when he had gained a slight advantage  over you in the number of pieces, traded  one for one, mercilessly, until he had  brought your ratio of strength to a point  whore your defeat was inevitable.

And yet you raged  inwardly against his policy and called it  unsportsmanlike. , -  Well, there are people who play the  game of life in that same way. Many of  them are very respectable people, too, go  to church every Sunday, treat their families kindly and obey the law. They are  very companionablo, jolly fellows, often,  but. be ware of. them, in any little, game,  of business or "politics.

A few months ago, the multi-millionaire  lost every hair on his head, lost his eyebrows, his moustache, became as bald as  the mirrors in his drawing-room... He  was extremely sonsitivo about his remarkable lack of ,hair. To wear a wig  would have been to reduce infinitely the  chance of growing new, true hair of his  own. He suffered from what the dermatologists call "allopeeia areata." The  dermatologists call tlie soft, downy hair  that now decorates his head "lanugo,"  from the Latin lana (wool). Usually  when this much-desired '"lanugo" appears  it .is white. So when the bald spots in  which it springs are small it gives thc  patient's. head a strangely mottled or  piebald appearance, as contrasted with  his natural hair, which may be black or  brown or red. But Mr. Rockefeller's  head is not piebald; it is covered with  ���������silky, white hair. Soon, if it thrives and:  grows, it may become pigmented. The  only discouragement about the growth  of the silky hair is that in persons over  fifty years of age there is no certainty  that it will flourish.

But whyl  Surely they cannot prove that there are  no indignant women to advantage by  the bequest. Nor will any sane and  honest man contend, that it weuld not  be a good thing to provide a home where  such might foregather, as occasion arose,  to give.vent to their indignation.

' If he had meant, "indigent" he  might have said so.  "It was one of the hottest nights lost  Beason," he said. "The missus and children were at the seashore, and I was  alone in the house. To gain a little  coolness I opened the doors through all  the rooms on -the second story and  dragged up my bed to the front window. Just as I was feeling tlie relief,  and was dropping off into a most delicious slumber, a prolonged and melancholy yowl awoke me. Again and again  it was repeated. I recognized the sound  only.too well���������it was a dog serenading  the moon, which was at its full, and I  know by experience that,such concerts  usually lasted hours. Rising on,my elbow, I could see across the street, and  there in- a patch of silvery light on a  balcony sat a small white fox terrier,  with nose uplifted, enjoying a very ecstasy of woe. 'Flora!''called a coaxing  voice from the window. 'Come here.'  ���������Flora paid no attention, .whereupon a  white form appeared, aud, leaning out,  made, a grab at the small offender, who.  retfeated"tb"i"th6"~6the"ri"end_of-tiie_bal5=  cony out of reach and renewed her music, unheeding the dulcet endearments of  her mistress, who tried to induce her to  re-enter the house. A second window  was opposite Flora, and the white form  reappeared at that and cautiously  reached; out an arm to seize tiie dog,  who, however, gained tlie other point of  vantage and continued to bay to tho  moon. This puss in the corner business  was continued several minutes, Flora  scampering from end to end of the balcony, evidently enjoying her triumph,  while still continuing her music. By this  timo heads appeared at thc windows of  several other liou3es, and the situation  became desperate. 'Dear Flora! Pretty  Fiom! Hern's a nice biscuit for Flov.i i���������  called the sott voice, but Flora* would  not be cajoled. Finally, to the relief of  everyone, Nemesis appeared. When  Flora miule liertlast skip from her mistress a tail figure in pink pajamas appeared at the other window, stretched  out a long masculine arm and seized the  wicked Flora by the scrulT of iier neck.  ICi-yil' yelped the little animal; but the  master of the house, incensed at being  aroused from his slumber to catch a'pet  dog, had no compassion. That a well deserved punishment was inflicted wn all  heard with satisfaction. Then quiet  reigned and we returned lo our eouchc3  and interrupted repose."���������N. Y. "Tribune.",  "I saw Johnson going home with my  new book under his arm."  "Yea. Just built bim a house and his  wife wanted some bric-a-brac in red and  gold to scatter around."  _w  The fact that all Turkish women must  dress alike in the streets gives rise to  the impression of a samaness of  character that does not in tho least exist among them," says Mary Mills Patrick, president of the American College  for Girls in Constantinople. "A superficial observer who meets these veiled figures in public places, shrouded in a mysterious costume that suggests groat pos-.  sibilitics of beauty behind it, may wonder indefinitely what kind of a life these  figures really lead, without any clue to  the solution of the problem. Ttet life in  Turkish society is as real aud varied as  in America, and often far more dramatic.  "There are decided types among Turkish women. There is the butterfly, who  lives for pleasure; the domestic woman,  and even the strong-minded woman, and,  in addition to these, a class exists not  found in America, thc women who belong  to court society.  "The butterfly is often a Circassian  woman, and was perhaps brought to Constantinople to bo sold to the highest bidder, and throughout all her childhood  was taught to look forward to a possible  life at the capital, to bo made gaV and  bright, with plenty of money and flirtation and social" success. Sho has, perhaps, tl'*s bright blue eyes and golden  hair that arc so rare among the Turks  to give her the place of eminence that  she desires. Because of her beauty her  husband showers her with presents and  fills her life with pleasure. Her eyelashes and eyebrows are painted, but not  very noticeably, and diamonds and other  beautiful stones; flash 'from her_ hands,  her wrists, her neck, and her hair. Tho  dress which she wears under her street  robe is from Paris, and her shoes are  low, even in winter, with pointed toes  and very high heels."  "When she goes out she is accompanied by several servants and one or  two eunuchs, to look after her comfort,  and she drives in a beautiful' private I  carriage drawn by Arabian horses, and  has carte blanche in the shops to make  as many purchases as she wishes of silks  and satins and jewelry. When her,blue  eyes fade and her bright hair grows gray,  will her power wane and her' place be  given to another? Perhaps not. That  will depend on .the characters with'  whieh she lia3 to deal, the number of  sons that she has, and her ability to  keep the ascendency that her beauty has  gained for her.  "The domestic Turkish woman presents a great contrast to the brilliant  creature that we have just described.  She is rather large and stolid-looking,  careless as to her dress, and of a simple  and amiable character. She lias a very  easy life compared with that .of hor American sisters. There is not much house--  keeping in a Turkish house, and what  there is is done by slaves and servants,,  who consider themselves permanent  members of tho family and realize what  is expected of them. Rooms furnished  with rugs and divans aro comparatively  easy to keep in order. There is a chef  in the kitchen, who sends hia be3t efforts  to the dining-room in the men's apartments, a. place seldom visited by the women of the household. Their own simple  food is served to them at irregular intervals, when they feel hungry. There is  perhapB a French governess lo teach the  children, who does not like the irregular  life of the harem, and an exception is  made in her favor, and she dines at the  "master's table, where the'food is served  more.to her taste. Her apartments are,  however,* in the-side of the house be-,  longing to the women, which is entirely  separate from the other half of the establishment.  ';0n bright days tbe domestic Turkish  woman takes all her family to* some  place of public resort, where they sit in  the sunshine all the duy long, buy Bweets  of the ever-present street peddler, smoke  cigarettes and drink coffee. ~ They never  endanger their nervous system by trying  to catch any particular steamer either,  in going or coming, but start when the  spirit moves, and wait at the landing for  a ��������� convenient steamer, reaching homo  early or late, as it happens.  "Let us now turn to that product of  modern progress, the educated Mahometan vvonuin., She may be found here and  there, perhaps in the harems of princes,  or of p.ishas, or even sometimes.in the  middle classes of society, although sKe  is not commonly found,anywhere a3 yet.  She reads English, French and German  readily, with'a good pronunciation, having thp aptitude for languages usually'  found with Turkish women. She reads  the daily papers, and lias decided opiu-"  ��������� ions in regard tpja]Pp������lit^l_afVairs.  The advance'd Moslem woman has a pri*^  vale room, instead of living in thc rooms  with the other women, and in tliis room  are found some unusual articles for a  Turkish.house���������namely, a writing desk,  somo bookshelves upon which stand  many of the new books of the day; and  on the walls hang some really fine engravings.  "She longs to travel,-but that is not  yet allowed to a Turkish woman, at  least, beyond the bounds of. her own  land. She has been to-Egypt and Syria,  but that docs not satisfy .her, and she  even dreams of going to Paris and Ber"'  lin to work in the libraries there., 'She  scorns the frivolities of ordinary society,  and contemplates forming a club, where  kindred HpiriL*, nii.y dljeiis.* co>ige������iial  subjects, but that' bus not yet been possible. " Her in llu once in the press is already felt, and ono may forcsco that  she will form one of thc cements iu the  forces thnt are rapidly changing the conditions of Turkish life.  "Such arc soino of the phases of life  among Turkish women. It is a'life that  has its romance and mystery, its coin-  monplaco side, and its features of progress, and is, after all, only the Eastern  edition of tlie experiences that are common to the women of all nations."
