Sir Wilfrid Laurie- writes  Alt*. Tarte today ns follows:  Ottawa, Oct. 21, 1D0Z-  My Dear Tarte��������� Afler having seen  you on Sunday last and having expressed to you my well settled opinion  upon the consequences of yonr recent  attitude, my first duty was to wait  upon His Excellency, the Governor  General to inform him that I was  obliged to demand the resignation of  yonr portfolio.  After having seen His Excellency, T  had to acquaint my colleagues of the  interview which,I,had .with you. In  accepting your resignation it ia well  to emphasize the points of difference  between ms. -During my absence in  Europe, .without any communication'  with me, and without any previous  understanding with yonr colleague?,  you began inn active, campaign . in  favor of an immediate levision of the  larilf in the direction of high protection. I regret having been-obliged to  observe to you that this altitude on  your part constitutes* a self evident  violation, of, your duly towards "the  government of which yen were" a  member.-'"'1 repeat to you here what 1  told you on Sunday. ���������     _ .'_  '  1 do ��������� not wish to discuss at thi***  moment lhe economic theoiyof whiih  you have made yourself champion.  This question, however important, it  might be, is suboidinate to one still  more important. If you had reached  the conclusion that the interests of the  country demanded, without delay, an  increase of customs duties, the fiist  thing for you to do as a member of the  government before addressing yonr  views to the public, would have been  lo place them before your colleagues  with the object of obtaining the unanimous action of the Cabinet, which is  the very foundation of responsible  government.^ If you had not been able  to obtain from your colleagues their  assent to'the" course which yoa recommend, you won'd bar been obliged  Ihen either to accept their own views  or to sever your own connection wilh  them,-."iiicl-theii_for_the_fii'St_tinie_y_oii.  would;have lie_pn free to place your  views before the public.  S.ieh was the very simple course  whicli was binding upon you, but to  remain a member of the government  and at' the. same time to advocate a  policy which had not'been adopted by.  the government was an impediment" to  the pioper working .of ..our constitutional system', and implies a disregatd  to thai lovaltv' which all those who  are members of the same administration owe to one another and have a  right to expect from each other.  I I hank you fur the good wishes  which you have expressed for the  impiovement of my health, 'and I will  make it my duty to convey to your  old colleague* those that you formulate  for their'welfare and their happiness.  Believe me,  Yours sincerely,  Wilfrid L.vukieb.  ,  The   above   letter   was    written  in  reply to the following one dated   from  Toronto :  Toronto, Oct. 20.  The Bight Hon. Sir Wilfrid Laurier.  Prime Minister, Ottawa:  My Dear Sib Wilfkir,���������  I feel it is my duty- to place my  resignation in your hands and ask you  to be good enough to have it accepted  by His Excellency the Govei nor  General. In the interview which I  had ".with you. you expressed lh**  opinion that I should not have spoken  on the tariff as I have done, that the  Gevernnient had not, as yet, come to  any definite understanding on their  fiscal policy for the future.  I shall not discuss   wilh   you at the  present time as to whet her I was right  o:* wrong in the course. I followed.

Believe me, my dear Sii "Wilfrid,  Very'sincerely yours,  (Signed) J. ISRAEL TARTE"  Montheal, Oct. 21.���������"La Patrie,''  Jlr. Tarte's organ, tonight made no  editorial refeience to the Alin'ster's  retirement. It simply contented itself  with publishing the correspondence.  AVinnipeg, Oct. 21.���������Messrs. Borden,  Clarke, Clancy, Bluin and Henderson,  whohave been addressing Conservative  meetings, returned East today, well  satisfied wilh their tour.  ��������� Interviewed before leaving, on the  resignation of Air. Tarte, Air. Borden  said:.       .  .  '"As a* member of the Cabinet Air.  Tarte has shown broader ' views _ and  more initiative than any'of his colleagues. .It.has beeu apparent on many-  occasions during the past two or three  years,1 that his ideas on many subjects  nf National importance were in'ad vance  of those of his colleagues and that' he  felt himself greatly restricted by his  associations with some of his colleagues'.  A notable illustration of this was. a.  communication from Air. Tarte, wliich  appealed in "La Patrie," within the  past twelve months, in which he  pointed out many lines of policy .which  he favored andi' desired to advocate.  "Thispolicy,'hesaid, 'I would advocate;  these things I would do. if .1 were a  member of Parliament. But I am not  a member of Parliament. I am ody a  Cabinet Alinistei."'  s  COAL FIELDS  Miners at Work on the Big Coal  Veins.���������A New Townsite and  Tramway.���������Five Feet ol Coal  Already Uncovered.  Okaxaoa'x, Oct. 23���������A large force of  Pernio coal  miners are at work under  the management of XV. Blakemore, at  the Siinilkamcen coal fields.   Five feet  of  coal  has   already been uncovered.  The Gartrell   ranch, on the   shores of  Okanagan Lake and Trout ('reek, has  been purchased for townsite purposes.  Engineers  have been ordered to com-  plete the survey  of  the townsite and  to   locate  3 miles of  electric railway  to the coal mines.   The company are  calling   for   tenders   for   a   complete  plant, including coal bunkers.  Zamloch, the Magician.

A conference of provincial premiers  will he held shortly at Quebec" and  among'other'mutters to be discussed  is the question of mi reduction of the  membership of the, eastern provinces  in the House of-Commons, following  on the results of the census and an  increase of membership from the west.  The figures as they stand today mean  cutting down Ontario's representation  from 01 to 85 members.

THE BEATRICE  GROUP BONDED  And Stocked���������A Valuable Property Situate at the Headwaters of Mohawk Creek-  Extensive Work to be Done  Last week at Nelson u deal was coir  eluded which gives to Frank F.  Fiilmcr and associates the full control  of the famous Beatrice group on  Alohawk creek in the Fish Creek  district.  The Beatrice was known as amine  long before the Eva, Gold Finch and  others were heard of, but owing to  litigation having arisen respecting llie  piopeity operations were necessarily  suspended for the time.. Now all these  difficulties have been cleared awuy,  the properties will be crown granted  and work has been started up on an  extensive scale and' large quantities of  supplies are going up to the mine  where good cabins and warehouses  have been recently erected.  The trail from Camborne'will be put  in first class condition 'at once and  shipments will'be resumed this winter.  Over 200 tons of rich grey copper ore  have been shipped from the property  and Ihere is a large hody of ore of very  high grade now ready to be knocked  down and shipped.  In our last 'issue we referred to the  big strike of fiee milling gold found on  the Beatrice. Returns have been re'  ceived showing assay values of $13 per  ton from an average sample taken  across the surface of a 20 foot ledge.  , The company has been formed as a.  non personal liability company with a  capital stock _of , $500,000 in 1.000.000  shares of a par. value of 50,cents ench,  and with hend ' office at Revelstoke.  The stock is being placed in American  cities and .very little of the stock will  be offered locally. The compnny are  already assured of. enough capital to  carry on its operations iind men are  daily applying to the mine manager  for work-and ask nothing better for  their pay .than Beatrice shares.1- TllE  Herald believes that',, the Beatrice  under competent, management will  prove a valuable mine.  New Serial Story.  In onr next issue will,commence a  new serial . story entitled " The  Moonstone Sphinx." ' The new story  is from the pen of Airs. C. N. Williamson, author of "A. Girl of the People,'  which concludes this week, and which  has been followed with great interest  during the past three months by oiir  readers.

A party of some thirty mining men  from Hancock, Houghton, and Calum*  et, Mich., left Hancock on Monday  evening        last       en      route to  Goldfields where they will look over  the Northwestern Development Syndicate's properly and the Eva mines  opposite Goldfields. During Manager  Brock's visit to Alichigan some few  months ago this trip was organizad  under the auspices of the Northwestern  Development Syndicate and it was  intended that this company of mining  men should reach the gold camp the  first week in October, but owiag to  delays the party were unable to leave  before the 20lh as stated. The party  is expected to arrive in Nelson tomor*  row evening and the annual meeting  of the Northwestern Development  Syndicate will be held in that city  immediately on their arrival and the  organization of the Calumet & British  Columbia Company will be completed.  On the completion of their work in  Nelson the party will leave at once for  Goldfields, and will probably arrive in  that town on Sunday.  The visit of so many mining men  from the Eastern States rto the rich  gold camp of Fish- River will be of  untold benefit. Their personal inspec*  tion of-i the camp in'which they have  so much capital invested will settle in  their minds the full value -. of  the camp as a gold producer. The Her*  ald ventures the prediction that the  gentlemen constituting the party, will  be perfectly satisfied with the company's operations, and will return  to Alichigan with the story of the  wonderful possibilities of the camp.  For if they give lhe camp a fair and  impartial investigation on its merits  without the aid and" through 'the  glasses of interested manipulator  they will be able to grasp the actual  situation wilh a thorough appreciation  of its greatness.. The Herald begs  tn suggest to these gentlemen  that it is' in " the best interests  of the * country^ and in the best  interests of .their stockholders, wbo  have been instrumental ;in planning  this trip, that they might have a fair  and honest knowledge of the properties from personal investigation in  .which they (have invested so 'much  money, and in the best interest of its  management that they should not  allow themselves to be ' hampered in  their desire to seek, after all the facts  $6.00  THEN a Special High Grade Pure Wool, English Blanket which weighs 8 lbs., joins  in at the specially low price of '..._ ;.*.*-.. ��������� ��������� ��������� '������������������ ���������   Dress Goods for Saturday  Savings on the very cloths vou need.

Conversely, from repeated exhibitions by tho  "reptiles of the human race" of the depravity and meanness to which they  sometimes surrender themselves, we  form our general opinion of the dangers to be feared from such moral perverts as sometimes rub elbows with us  on the march of life or occupy a scat  adjoining ours on the scene of our daily  ���������work. Such experiences anent our fellow-men are at hand for all of us, and  I their generalized lessons, more or less  I plain to all, are designated "common  experience."  But there is another range of experiences���������strange to say, equally plain*  and patent to all���������which are not so  readily understood or not, so frequently applied (to our losstand detriment!)  as those touching our fellow-men; Ihey  ere the repeated facts of life in connection with the Great Spirit, the great  and all-wise God, who has sent us  hither for a brief stay in accordance  with some wise plan pervading the universe. Thus, ...repeated examples occur  around us of tbe pernicious effects of  sin and vice, on a national scale as  well as on an individual one; and yet  men rarely draw upon their "experience" ' for    moderative    or    preventive  measures when contemplating just such  error themselves. That sum of human  experience, that Almighty God loves  purity and justice and lms set His all-  powerful ban upon all disregard of this  His law, is strangely neglected or forgotten of men when present opportunity invites to sin.

How  countless ;the instances when Divinity  shaped our ends smooth that sccmcl  so rough, rent the clouds that threatened, dispelled thc storms that terrified us 1  But of nil tho experiences on this  side, those most strangely and detrimentally neglected centre around that  factor of human experience to wliich  the Psalmist _ alludes, the power of  prayer. Thc Hebrews always -were n  prayerful people. In later centuries  they had good reason to be, but centuries before Homer had sung of siege ]  and strife, or Roman Romulus bad  founded his law-making city, the Jewish bards in their inimitable Psalter  had sung of God's nearness to man by  way of the avenue of prayer, nnd sung  iii terms that make their book to-day  the**prized prayer book of civilization's  myriads.  Thi3 "nearness of God"   is a subject  men_'and-women-would-do-"-weii"-to-e*x:'-i  amine, ponder and  apply in  their own  lives.   We have societies for psychic research,   collecting  instances   of   the   influence  of  spirit  over   matter    and   of  spirit answering spirit  on the    humau  plane."

If  we  settle  ourselves  to  think about it we can  do a  little work oi psychical research in tnii  field  ourselves.    Many  of us  know, all  of  us  have  heard,  of  instances  whero  true prayer, "calling upon God in very  truth," have met with blessed response;  and   not  for   ourselves  alone,    but   for  other.**.     Let   ine     quote .   an   installed  coming under my knowledge.     A young  friend seemed  inexorably bent upon a  coiir-e  fraught  with  certain  and   bitter  mortification, if  not  with   danger. "Remonstrance,   warning,   requests,   loving  entreaty alike shattered upon his headstrong determination.    His best friends  were in despair, when one loving heart,  not discouraged by rebuff, betook itself  to prayer, to fervid, passionate implora-  tim at the very footstool of God, calling upon  Hiin "in very truth" for help  and   guidance   for   the   one   so   wilfully  blind.     After   forty-night   hours,   when  tbe  object  oi   so  much  loving  thought  tens again encountered the latter cheor-  fully   vouchsafed     the    ns-aonismiig   information   that,  thf;  idea   had   come  to  him  of consulting voluntarily    another  friend,-a. wise and almost forgotten one,  ������nd the advice then received had swayed him  to heed  the remonstrances and  warning.*,  so  long  discarded.'" Must we  not  think  that  that  passionate  prnyf-r,  unknown  to  its  subject,  is  entitled  to  iome share in the sudden retreat mane  by  uncompromising   obstinacy  and   the,  unlookcd for recourse to the one earthly  influence    that    surprisingly    could  ������way him *    This is only one instance,  quoted   because   recent  in   the   writer's  mind.

To give  It to us, and* take no further account  Bf it, were unworthy of the Great  Donor. Just as tiie fragment of a  Blinttcred mirror is also a mirror itself, just as thc smallest drop of water  possesses all tho qualities and is subject to the same laws as the ocean's  floods, so tho atom of spirit we call  "human soul" is most truly a fragment, a drop of tlio Great Soul. Must  it, then, not have sfflinity with its origin; affinity, therefore intercourse!  therefore influence ?  A fearful storm rages out of doors;  my infant child is sick, nigh unto  death, and.

So, when storm and stress oppress,  shall we not breathe upon the magnet  of prayer which our souls all contain,  and will not our sore petition speed  along on spirit-waves, up to the focus  and centre of all spirit, whence presently shall emanate the actuating  thrill that sends help, encouragement,  relief T  Try it, men who faint because of the  battle of life's struggle; try it, women  who thrill and quiver with affection's  sorrows for those ye love; try tho  spiritual telephone which the Psalmist  and all good men and women recommend; for, verily, "the.

At the close of the interview, the Premier culled hiin by his surname, as in thc old days, without tho  prefix "mister."

Railway travel is fast losing its perils.  According to reports recently made public in London, not a passenger wns killed  on any English railway in 1001, and only  eleven people who were not passengers  received fatal injuries. American railways muy be belter equipped than those  across the wnter, hut thev have not yet  approached tho new English record for  safety.  A remarkable piece of railroad engineering is about to be begun by the  Southern Pacific Railroad in Utah. Foi  the sake of saving four nnd a half miles,  the railroad is to build a new line one  hundred and live miles long, which for  part of the way will run on a timber  trestle across the Great Salt Lake. It  now runs around the northern sboro of  the lake, over a route full of Bbarp  curves and heavy grades. The work will  take three yenrs, and will cost two and  a half million dollars.  A writer in the "Illustrated Sporting  and Dramatic News" tells of a clear case  of canine murder. The owner of an Air-  dale terrier bought a small Cocker spaniel pup, and it wns made much of by  the members of the family. "Scottic,"  the terrier, utterly ignored the pup's existence. One morning the puppy was  missing, and, after n fruitless search, the  "gardener remembered seeing "Scottic"  come out of a rhododendrou bed, witli  nose and face much begrimed with earth.  There the body of tho pup was found,  and it was plain that "Scottie" had first  killed and then buried thc poor little  creature.  A year ago, says thc "Youth's Companion," three prominent physicians told  a certain New Yorker thnt he wns afflicted  wilh   locomotor  ataxia,  and  be-  yond the power of cure.   Thereupon thit  man, who, even when he used two cnues,  "floundered   around   wherever   his   legs  . chose to take hiin," went to a gymnasium.   Ho took exercise in ten-minute: instalments.    It was torture, but he persisted in it, and when he was not exercising he stayed out-of-doors.   Presently  he  began   lo  ride  the  bicycle,  too,  although  he  could not stop his  inuchinc  except by putting on the brake nnd fall*  , ing  off.    After  seven  months  of  hard  work his legs were "still wabbly," but he  began  to  play  handball.

First, it hns only a circulation  of 3f>,000 a day; secondly, it publishes  no Sunday edition; and thirdly, although its circulation is comparatively  insignificant, it has so many advertisements as to stand among tho few dailies  at the top of tho advertising field. Instead of a Sunday paper, it publishes a  Saturday magazine supplement. Although it hns so small a circulation, it  has made sufficient pront to build a  much finer newspaper oflice than anything to be seen in New York.

No pensive Madeleine, trembling  in her chaste couch, sits up nowadays  at midnight of St. Agnc3' eve to view  her lover in a looking-glass. Midnight  has become conunonplnce. Familiarity  with it has bred contempt. One hardly  ever goes to bed before that hour. Life  is.too short that we should waste the  precious hours between blankets. Slumber, such ns our forefathers knew, has  fled our eyes. We cannot afford to  give ten nnd twelve hours of the  twenty-four to slothful sleep. Six or  seven hours of dreamful, fretful dozing  make up our full allowance.

Lovett, Ont., Aug. 30.���������(Special.)���������  Every man, woman and child for  miles around knows Mr. C. A. Harries, the genial Postmaster at L/ov-  ett.  Mr. Harries is a hale old gentleman, 75 years of:age, and considering his advanced years is remarkably  well pftscrved, strong and healthy.  But he was not| 'always so. Five or  six years ago he was at the point of  death, being fearfully run down and  a complete, wreck with. Bright's Dis-  .easc...'  He was so low that no .one ever  dreamt that' he", could pull through,  and yet he is alive and; well to-day.  This is a statement of the_ caBe in  Mr. Harries1 own words:  "In 1897 I was at the point of  death with Bright's Disease, and was  a complete wreck. I could not even  dress myselt or"turn in my bed, hut  "now I am a well man, and I attri-*  hu'tc it all to Dodd's Kidney Pills.  "I am 75 years old, and for a man  of my years I feel quite strong and  healthy. I consider Dodd's Kidney  Pills a good medicine to take  in thc Spring, as I have found it a  great blood  purifier.  "As Postmaster I come in contact  with a great many people, and I  know of my-personal knowledge that  a great many in this country arc using Dodd's Kidney'Pills with the best  results."  Such evidence should be "most ������on-  vincing to any ono who still doubts  that .Dodd's Kidney Pills will cure  Bright's Disease'.  The honest, earnest, straightforward testimony ot such reputable people certainly deserves the confidence  of everyone.  If Dodd's Kidney Pills can and do-  cure Bright's Disease, which is the  very, worst-form of Kidney-Trouble,  they certainly, ��������� .will cure. any. of the  lesser forms,. .'-.*',-  A Missionary Story. \  A missionary returned from Equator  ial-Africa-told-this'-story-at-a-club-the-  othcr night:  Iu thia man's territory * there was a  chief who had reaiated every, appeal to  make him a Christian. He was the biggest man in a sort of confederation of  savage tribes, and the missionary knew  that if the big chief were once converted  the eilect would be felt by every native  within fifty miles. So the missionary  kept after him month in and month.out,'  in face of every kind of indifference and  rebuff. '    '  At the end of two years thc missionary was all hut ready to give up, .when  one day the miracle came to pass���������the  big chief's heart was touched by the  truths of Christianity. The missionary,  redoubled his efforts, and in,two months  more the big chief offered himself for  baptism.  It looked like a great victory won,  until, in examining the new convert, the  missionary discovered that; according to  tlio chiefly 'prerogative he had' two  wives. Tlie missionary expressed*.,hia  horror, indignation and grief to t"he  chief.  Ifo explained to him how the state of  polygamy was a barrier to anyone who  wished to become a Christian. Then he  prayed with him, and the chief departed,  weeping over bis unfitness.  ,iT5ut a month later he came again, joyous, devout, and, throwing himself at  the missionary's feet, asked for bap-,  tism.  "My brother," said thc missionary, "I  cannot baptize you while you arc., the  husband of two wives." "'--..  "Xo two wives, just one wife now,"  aaid the chief.  Thc missionary raised him to hia feet.  Here was the true penitent.  "My brother," said the missionary,  "vou mako my heart glad. And what  did you do with your second wife?"

Ia the death of Hendrik WillemMes-  dag Holland  has lost one of her most  eminent painters.   The Times in its notice   of  his   decease   remarks  that  for  many years,  after  the venerable Josef  Israels,  he  had  held   thc  leading position    among    the Dutch artists of his  time.   He was born in 1831, at Gronin-  gen, where his father was a prosperous  banker, as, by a curious coini'iilcncc, wns  the    father    of   Israels.    Mcsdng early  showed-a taste for art and much skill  In drawing, but the claims of the family business  were  for n  long time  loo  strong, and he did not seriously think  of  exchanging   the  ollice  desk  for   the  easel of a professional pain I or until ho  was* 3j.   Needless to say,  that many of  his  neighbors  and .friends  thoiiglil'him  very foolish ln giving up a,-good business for ta very unccrtiiin profession, and  Josef Israels himself is reported to have  said that no man but a -fool could hope  to succeed' if he began that most ililli-  cult career, only when approaching mid-  dlo life.   However, Mcsdng went lirst lo  Oostorbeck, then to Brus-cl-t, delirinlncd  that nothing should divert him from his  course, and, aided by the advice of his  friend   and   fellow-countryman,   Alma-  Tadcma,  and  by  another  artist,  J. W.  Bilders,   he set  himself  strenuously  to  work.   He went to no academy ; ho put  himself    under    no    muster;   but  from  morning   to   night   he   made ..fii'st-Iiund  studies from nature, drawing trees, gardens,  old  walls,  effects  of  light falling  through a window,  and, above all, any  subjects which should give him a sound  and accurate knowledge of perspective.  In all this lie was greatly encouraged  and aided by his wife, a member, of the  Van Houteii family, and herself an artist, and, as he had a fair fortune of his  own, there,was no need prematurely to  paint  pictures  for  sale,   while,   on" tin*,  other  hand,  his  studio   in  the Rue   do  Eogier, Brussels, soon became a centre  of artistic society.    Afler  a couple of  years  Mesdag  discovered   his   true  clement ln the sea, which at once possessed  his mind so wholly that he resolved to  leave Brussels and settle at The Hague,  so that he might make daily studies on  the sands and dunes of Scheveningcn. He  worked very h������rd, and to so much effect  that by the spring of 1870. he was ablo  to sena two important  pictures  to the  Salon,  where they- were  hung close to  the "Le Vague" of Courbct'.   People compared them, not  to Mcsdag's disadvantage, and the success of the new painter was placed beyond doubt by the gr.int  of  a  gold  medal  to  his   picture  called  "Breakers in the North Sea."   From that  time  forward  there  is  little to reeord,  for Mesdag's career wns one of uninterrupted success ; he took and maintained  his place among the chief representatives  of modern Dutch* art, and both public  and private galleries in Europe and America came to regard him as one of tho  artists whom they could not do without.  His  pictures  of  calm . and   storm,  with  fishing-boats  at rest or in .violent  motion,  arc extremely well  known by  all  who  take "an Interest in modern painting, and, if they have been seldom seen  at the Royal Academy,  they have been  familiar  objects  in   many  smaller  I-on-  don "galleries, hanging side by side with  pictures "bv   Daubignv   and   Rousseau.  Mesdag" is * also  gratefully   remembered  by   hundreds'of* English   and  American  visitors   to' Th'e! Hague,   to   whom   his  house, with its remarkable'collection of  Barbizon pictures, was always open.   Ho  habitually spent  some part of hia considerable wealth in buying pictures by  the masters whom he- most admired, especially large and powerful sketches, and  few- collections give so good an Idea of  the real-qualities of the  art of Corot,  Millats   and   their   contemporaries.     At  various time3 there has been much talk  of Mcsdag's intention to leave this collection  to  the  city  of  The  Hague ;   if  that intention has been carried out, the  attractions of that . delightful    capital  will be materially increased.  - Bigamy and Divorce.  ' Our own' lack of divorce courts lends  local interest to an anecdote told by Sir  Francis Jeune.     Before the act of 1857.  divofce-could-only be-*obtaincd by-costly^  proceedings before the Houses of Parliament, and the hardahip thus imposed on  the mass of the population was deeply  felt, and many proposals "of reform were  made.     It in said.  Sir  Vrancis   writes  in an article on "Divorce," that the final  impetus was given to  an address  to  a  prisoner by Mr. Justice Maule. The prisoner's-wife had deserted hiin with her  paramour, and he married again during  her lifetime. He waa indicted for bigamy  and "convicted,  and   Mr.  Justice  Maule  sentenced him in the following words:���������  "Prisoner at the Bar���������You have been convicted of the oirence of bigamy, that ia  to'aav, of marrying a woman while you  had a wife still alive, though it is true  she has deserted you and is living in  adultery with another man.   You have,  therefore, committed a crime ogainst tho  lawe of your country, and you have also  acted under a very, serious misapprehension of the course which you ought to  have  pursued.    You should have gone  to the ecclesiastical court and there obtained  against  your    wife  a   decree   a  mensa ct thoro.    You should then have  brought an action in the courts of common  law,  and recovered, iBS no  doubt  you   would   have    recovered,   damages  against        your       wife's       paramour.  Armed with  these  decrees,  you  should  have approached the Legislature and obtained an act of Parliament which would  have rendered you free and legally competent to marry the person whom you  have taken on yourself to marry with  no such sanction.    It is quite true that  theae proceedings would have cost you  many hundreds of pounds, whereas you  probably have not as n\any pence.   But  the law knows no distinction between  rich  and  poor.    The   sentence    of  the  Court upon you, therefore, is that you  be imprisoned for one day. which, period ���������  has "already been exceeded, as you have  been in custody since the commencement  of the assizes." The grave irony of the  learned Judge was felt to represent truly  a state  of things well-nigh intolerable,  and   a reform   in  the  law   of* divorce  was felt to be inevitable.   The hour and  the man came in  1857.  the man ln thc  person of Sir Richard Bethell then Attorney-General.  ToU and the Designer of Things.

The wise man is he who  refuses to do what he is able to. do; our  ability always ,seems so much greater  to us until we put it to the test. Never  give yourself a chance. That's the only  way to escape heart-break."  The Girl was fragile in the gray light  She stood at the window looking intr  the twilight that fell in hopelessness  among the crowding walls of unsightly  buildings. The Boy took a step toward  the door.   Then the Girl turned.  "I wish yoir**would not talk like that,"  sho said. "It hurts. Have I ever said  I expected to do great things* You  know I haven't. I was mean to-day and  half envied you for your gift. But I  don't want to envy, anybody.

Tlie breeder must depend for the Improvement of his cattle and cows upon  inheritance and thc system of feeding,  but many beginners who do not ace immediate results of a system of breeding  get discouraged and give it up. A great  many criticisms of breeding results are  thus voiced through disappointment. A  good many times calves inherit tendencies rather than tlie nctual gifts which  their sires possessed, and these tendencies require cultivation and encourngc-  maut to develop. Good breeding consist  in recognizing such valuable tendencies  nnd in ciileiing to them. But time ia  required in aome instances to mnko  them nl nil consistent with one's ideas  of what they should bo. In thc hands  of good feeders and breeders dniry cows  arc producing larger supplies of milk  nnd crciim. Milk rich in buller fnts is  becoming more common* nnd feeding  more economical. A cow can bo fed today by n progressive dairyman nt much  less cost than it was possible (en yenrs  ngo, nnd yet feed is higher. This is due  to a bolter, balanced., ration, which  means economy in cost, oh bolh ends,  lt produces more results, and it can bo  provided nt less expense.  ��������� Wc have the breeds lo-day which aro  well adapted to beef or bulter-niaking,  nnd these are becoming more common  on our farms every year. Their general  distribution argues well'for thc future  ,of our cattle and dairy outlook. But  to keep'up tho potency of these good  breeds wc must have the courngc of our  convictions nnd thc patience necessary  to wait for results. Wc need to feed  for, a purpose, and to develop tendencies  which will provide us with sure profits.  Well-bred cows in the hands of ignorant  peoplo arc sure to degenerate, and in  time nil their good points will be neutralized. It is necessary that we should  have intelligence in feeding to bring  out the, best that there is in them.  Educated men in this line of work will  not only emphasize tho value of good  breeds, but they will raise the standard  of dairying and beef raising a littlo  higher each year.���������American Cultivator.  Vermin" on  Turkey*.  The, young turkeys for the fall and  winter holidays should be well under  way now, and. their growth should be  carried on continuously-through the hot  weather. One of the most disagreeable  posts, that will annoy the young birda  and ultimately cause the death of mnny,  if not checked, is the lice. They will  appear in such numbers that the birda  will quickly droop and die, but not a  louse will the owner be able to find. Yet  this should not-convince him that the  birds are not suffering from this pest.  It is better to take the birds and hang  them up and grease  them thoroughly.  Lard or kerosene" will accomplish the  desired result in short order. borne advocate not using eitier of these on the  turkeys until they arc at least a month  old, but if the birds are attacked severely by the lice it is much snfer to  protect them in this way than to let  them stand their chances with the insects. Lard is safer, for the young turkeys than' kerosene, nnd it will accomplish  the  purpose  intended.  Frequently the lice appear on the  young turkeys before they are a week  old, nnd by a month they are half killed with them. Melt some lard in a  tin, and with a soft toothbrush it is  possible to spread the grease over the  wings, feathers of tail and body so that  the lice will nil be killed. .This should  be done every few "weeks up to the middle of August, .if .the lice are very numerous and troublesome, and after that  time you will have little trouble with  them. ' Turkeys tbat are kept free from  lice will grow almost twice as fast as  those afflicted by the insects.

To find the number of cubic feet in a  stack of hay multiply the width in feet  by the perpendicular, height .from the  ground to the- eave or shoulder, plus one-  .half.the perpendicular'distance from this  point to the crest, and this product by  the length in feet.  ... If. thc stack is a low one and is fairly,  uniformly rounded from the ground on  one side over to thc ground on the other,  take the distance from the ground on one  side over to the ground on the other  side, multiply by one-fourth the width  at base, and this product by the length  of the.stack. -In. the above case the  average of the four measurements over  the stack from ground to ground is 34>/,  feet; multiplying by one-fourth of_18,  which ia given as the width, and this product by thc length (237 feet) gives 30,-  C27 cubic feet. Xow, as to the number  of cubic feet in a ton of hay, there nre  a great manv things that must be considered and upon the correctness of the  judgment as to the admixture of these  controlling factors will depend the accuracy of thc estimate.  Some of thc factors affecting the  weight of a cubic foot of hay are height  of stack, length of time the stack has  been standing, condition of hay as regards moisture at lime of stacking,  coarseness of the hay and its freedom  from coiirsc-stcinmcd weeds. Timothy  hay will, ns a rule, weigh more per cubio  foot than clover, and line* timothy will  weigh much more than coarse.  Where the hay is fine and thc stack  is 12 feet or more in height and has been  standing at least six months, 425 cubic  feet will usually make a ton. If the hay  is a little coarse or the stack is less than  10 feet in height, it will usually require  about 450 cubic feet to make a ton.  In tho above case, where thc stack is  pure clover and less than 10 feet high,  unless it is very fine and has'been stacked quite green, I should say it would  require at least' 475 cubic feet to make  a ton.���������Iowa Agricultural Coilege-  " Boole Boosting:" in France.

LEGAL  The editor of the Frank (Alberta)  Sentinel is in favor of Canada for  Canadians, along with tlie vast majority of people living here. His comments  on the subject make very good rending  and withal carries with it more truth  than poetry.    Hear him :  " Some of  the Eastern  papers have  come out with  the cry of Canada for  the  Canadians.     Well, we are glad to  hear that the Canadian is at last to be  given   a  chance   to   make a living at  home, for he has been  forced to leave  the country by hundreds of thousands  dui-ing   the   last   thirty   years.    If   a  position at home was worth  having it  was reserved for some Choliy boy, ancl  the immigration agents were too busy  scouring  Europe   for  spirit wrestlers  and like folk to take any time to pilot  the youths of Canada out to our broad  expanse   of   agricultural   land    lying  unoccupied iu   the   west.    Canada for  Canadians   is   a   very   good   motto if  .   taken in the right spirit, but if taken  literally  it  means a know-nothing, a  dog in the manger principle, and the  holding   hack  of   our    country.     In  Canada   there   is   room for all, so leL  them all come and share alike in our  boundless   natural   wealth    of   farm,  forest and  mine.    But let ns call off  our   immigrations   agents   iu Europe  who.     working     upon     commission,  would, if   thev   could, flood   this fair  land with anything   that   looked   like  a man that they could induce to sail.  Any class of immigration  that needs  help and urging to come must be pretty trifling in their own   country   and  will  prove  a detriment rather than a  help to the laud of their adoption. One  immigrant who, unassisted,  comes of  his own free will to the country shows  that he   has   some   ambition   aud   is  worth more to the country than a shipload of paupers. Pas. a sti ict immigra-  tioifliiw7"ihut~out"imbecile-and-pauper  immigration, letnone but I.he best come,  for surely none but the best are fit to  mingle their blood with the Canadians  and so let tlie next generation born on  our soil  be   as. strong   mentally  and  physically as the present.    If we want  to   populate   the   country   the   first  principle is to find homes for our own  young folk in their own land, and give  them as fair a chance to take up land  am the foreigner."

In tho'J-ays of the Ark, they.; of the  ���������animal kingdom were ad-mltted, two by  two, on suffrance. In Paradise, they  ���������spotted at harmless, mythical ease,  untroubled *y man and his theories. But tha antediluvian daya  passed by. The animals became  as man, knowing good and evil, and  ���������hivlns, moreover, ways of their own.  Et all began with the flood. Up  to that time they -were roughly  classed ns "cattle and everything after  their kind." They were to .be fruilful  a.Tifi multiply and fill the earth, and  man -was to rule over them. So went  they into the Ark, two hy two; but so,  ���������alas, came ihey not out. They have  i������.-n fruitful; they have multiplied,  ^and filled the earth; and to-day man.  their master, I.s prostrate before them.

One cannot help wondering a little  iiow It li.-.s tome nl.out. .Hints of it  crop out in the Old Testament���������after  the flood. The animals are no longer  creeping things and cattle after their  .���������.ind. They are found taking on names  ;- and a certain Individuality. There is*  the ram caught by its horns to serve  in place of Isaac on the altar of sacrifice, and the bears that eat up bad lit-  rJs children, and the Ass that speaks,  and the Lions of Daniel, and the Whale  of Jonah. All these are historical personages, with David and Saul and  Noah���������.with the strange winged creature oi Ezekiel. and Apocalyptical visions of beasts with heads and horns  and. crowns and candlesticks and Scarier Women.  The biblical writers did not hesitate,  Jt would seem, to draw on the animal  .kingdom when necessary to mak>.  clear the ways ot God to man. Will,  a. fine disregard ot zoology and fact,  ihey drove home the truth. And theii  words live even to this day. But animal lore has changed. We are askec".  to give up Jonah and the whale, as*  being a tax on credulity. We are offered, in place of it, either "Wild Animals That I Have Known" or "The  Outcasts." The bears of Elijah the  prophet are replaced by "The Bears of  Bine River" by the author ot "When  Klnigblhood Was ln Flower." And Ba-  tri-am-B Ass "becomes a Coyote whose  tavorlle message is "Yip-ki-ki���������Yah!"  Imagination, like ' Jerushun, has  -w.a.xed fat mm% kicks.  Perhaps   the   Jungle   Books   did   it:  Aesop 13 too far away and too excellent   to   he   held   responsible   tor   the  hordes Jet loose on us.   Like the biblical   animals   of   old,   the   animals   ol  .Vesop existed for a purpose���������flashlights  on the heart of man.   The cunning fox  and the brave Hon and the foolish wolf  ���������axlsted te point a moral and adorn a  UJe.  This done, they disappea-red once  .mora  In    the    brushwood ' of   fancy  w'henae they came.   The Jungle Book.-  too have their master-word���������the Law  of the Jungle.

Private Marriages of Royal  Widows.  W  BITING.of. the alleged morganatic marriage of the late Empress Frederick, the Paris correspondent of London "Truth" says:  "A Berlin paper stated some days  ago that the Empress Frederick was at  the time of her death the wife of  Count Seckendorf, her house marshal.  The other Journals call on the Government to disprove 'the monstrous assertion.* Why snould it be a monstrous  assertion? The Count was an old and  faithful friend ot' the Empress. He  accompanied her in her artistic tours.  Frederick, esteemed him highly, lt Is  now some years since her youngest  daughter married. Why should she  not mairy a gentleman so distinguished .is the Count? The truth is  that the private marriages of royal  and Imperial widows are not the exception, mil the rule, and hnve been  so for centuries. Some august widows  were satlsllcd to look much lower for  their second husbands than the Empress Frederick Is said to ha%-o done,  ln France and Italy marriage with a  person, of Inferior rank was thought a  sign of greater weakness than a  'friendship.' The worship of a first  husband or wife does not necessarily  exclude affection tor a second. I had  a relative who presented colored glass  windows that cost ������1,000 apiece to  churches In memory ot his first wife  when he was walking about London  with his socond wife. There was never  a widow more devoted to the memory  of her first husband than the late  Duchesse d'Oi-leans. Nevertheless, she  was believed to have married her secretary. 'A conscience marriage' is easy  ln Catholic countries save in France.  Nobody except the priest who officiates  need know about it. 'A conscience  marriage' might be celebrated very  quietly ln England by publication of  banns with a slight change of names,  changing, say, Guelph to Wolf, oi  Bonaparte to Goodshare., There Is also  the registrar's oflice, 'Where things  might pass with utter privacy. Scotland Is the country of all others where  private marriages can best be entered  into. No solemnization Is required,  and the status that arises from a mere  exchange of vows is stable."  A Race With a Tiger.  A1  "Shadowed" in Paris.  A Contrast.  c  The Sons of Poets.  ONTRASTING the England of today with the England of forty-  years ago, E. L. Godkln says ln  the New York "Evening Post:" "The  poor man In England who" had ever left  his home then was somewhat of a prodigy; now nearly half of his substance  goes ln excursion fares. A dissenting  minister used to be an object of abhorrence nnd contempt; now he Is  quoted in Parliament by politicians. A  lord used to be an object ot dread and  reverence; now he is hardly better than  a foreign count. In the England that I  remember, third-class passengers on  the then newly-built railroads stood in  boxes like cattle; now they ,slt on  cushioned seats, the third-class cars  being so like the first-class that the  gentry have largely taken to using  them. The loveliest parts of the country at this summer season are thronged  ���������with excursionists, and It Is fair to say  that there are no longer secluded spots  In England. The famous scat ot the  lake poets, Cumberland and Westmorland, is so overrun with tourists that  the road through the mountains seems  to be leading to a fair; the small  steamers on the lakes arc thronged to  their utmost capacity. Unhappy is the  place which has some touch of 'Americanism' ln its history. The railroads  dump on ItHhousands of our countrymen, who poke their noses everywhere,  cut chips off every wooden memorial,  and apply tho hammer to every stone  one, and almost compel the Inhabitants to move out. The 'American' ln  jEngland used too often lo be regarded  as a low-class foreigner; to-day he Is  a welcome guest w-ho has a right to  RACE for lite on a bicycle from  a man-eating tiger sounds  more like a passage from a  novel of adventure than it  does like an actual event. Yet  Monsieur H. Rosny, the noted  French author, traveler and sportsman, claims to have taken part in Just  such a race In the Malay Peninsula.  He says:  A bicycle gleaming under a shed  caught my eye that first morning at  Nleuwenhuys plantation. I could not  resist the temptation���������I had not ridden  since leaving France. So I sped along  among the rice and coffee-fields for  about six miles, until I found myself  ln the heart of a forest.  While I was enjoying the beauty of  the place tliere was a crunching of  branches, and 1 became conscious that  something massive but light-footed was  approaching. Thirty yards from where  1 sat a tiger had issued from the jungle.  I dared not move a finger. To reach  my bicycle I must get to the road.  This was Impossible without attracting the attention of the brute, nnd In  two leaps he would be upon me.  With extreme nonchalance the tiger  at length turned toward the depths at  tho forest. I could bear It no longer.  I tore from my hiding-place, clambered over Intervening obstacles,  caught the bicycle, and ran alongside,  my hands on the handlebar.  In a flash, as I was mounting, I caught  sight of the great body crouching for  the leap. I heard the tiger at the first  bound land not far behind me. In the  minute space between the flrst and  second bound I got myself well started  and balanced for the struggle.  His fourth bound brought the tiger  very near. The next time I felt the  wind of his fall. A second* later his  shoulder or paw touched the tiro and  made me swerve.  What I no longer feared or even  thought of now happened���������I lost one  pedal, then both. I regained them with  some trouble, but on account of the  delay a claw once more grazed my  rear tire.  At this instant we came to a very  narrow bridge���������two boards side by side  over an irrigation canal. The wheels  went over it true as an arrow. The.  passage must have slightly retarded  the awful thing behind me, for although I dared not look behind I felt  him' to be farther off.  We were now between two fields of  bananas. A small tree had been cut  and thrown on the road so that lt completely barred the way. There was  nothing to do but try to go over at top  speed. I sailed right in furiously, and  although nearly thrown over, I succeeded In recovering my balance���������went  on, on, reached a smart decline, and  rolled down like a cannon-ball. At a  turning of the road the plantation  buildings came In view.  I cannot say when the tiger abandoned the race.- But when I shot amid  the group of my friends, fell and  scrambled to my feet, completely' out  of breath and my eyes bulging out, my  flrst Instinct was to look around In th*.  expectation of finding the brute at my  heels, ready to slay us all.  For a week afterward I ran that race  again in day-dreams and awful nightmares; and every time I passed in  front of my mirror I saw myself as  haggard ns a lunatic.  w  The House of Rothschild.  HEN a literary flsh of any Importance Is taken nowadays  one may be sure that a good  many editors and publishers have been  dangling their well-baited hooks before  Its, nose. For two years or more Captain Dreyfus has had offers for what  he might ultimately choose to publish.  The) business of offering advances and  royalties to authors is not usually attended with a great amount of personal danger. But there is an American woman, a Journalist, living ln Paris, who could tell a different tale, says  the "Saturday Evening Post." Two  summers ago, just as the great trial  was drawing to Its close, she' was In  London, and there met an enterprising "American" publisher. Conversation turned, as did all conversation  that summer, in cither England or  France, upon Dreyfus, and the publisher confided to the lady his desire  to publish something veritably from  the pen ot Dreyfus. The lady, it happened, was on terms of some intimacy  with the inner circle of Dreyfus'  friends, nnd when she loft England for  Paris she was commissioned to do what  sho could to get something for the  publisher, either from Captain or Madame Dreyfus.  Two days after she left London a  man approached thc publisher with the  positive assurance that he could arrange the whole affair within a fortnight. (In parenthesis lt may be said  that such men were not uncommon  that summer.) Tho publisher, remembering the proverb concerning a bird ln  the hand, rushed* to the nearest telegraph oflice and sent a message to the  lady in Paris as follows:  "Suspend Dreyfus negotiations for  the present.   Will write."  The telegram was delivered, but almost simultaneously the lady was  waited upon by a polite representative  of the police department, with a demand for an explanation. What negotiations was she carrying on ar.d  with whom? She told her story and  felt that it was received with thn  blandest incredulity. She promised to  show the police the letter from London  when It came, and reminded her visitor of her "American" citizenship. The  official departed. Unfortunately, thc  press of business sent the publisher  scurrying toward Scotland, and he, not  realizing how important lt was, neglected to write to the lady ln Paris.  She soon discovered that she was  being:"shadowed," and that her every  movement was being watched by mysterious people. At first she laughed,  and merely sent a little note of enquiry to London. No answer camo,  and the watching continued. Her  nerves began to give way, and finally  she went to the United States ambassador with the whole story. The shadowing ceased, lt would be Interesting  to know by just what diplomatic processes this incident was arranged.  The ''Lancet," the well-known English medical weekly, haa been cn-  tpurinjg into the question of the  ���������truisiniaioii oi genius from father to  ���������soa, and has found that the sons oi  ���������jreat poets arc generally dull dogs.   Poe-  = 3.ic fervor, is evidently a^spiritual flame  that burns itself out in tlie_gcneratioii_  ���������wherein it is kindled.    Indeed, it often  >������eM3i3 to burn out the very aptitude for  .paternity; or is it that the poet is gen-  - *4rally too poor to permit himself the  delight of fatherhood? However it may  Ibe, many eminent English poets can  never be accused of having *'dull dogs"  of sons, because tliey never had any son*!  At all.

The doctrine of reincarnation, along  with Karma and other Oriental hypotheses relating to the spiritual life, has  attracted much attention in the Occident of late years, and, as now appears, it has even become a subject of  discussion among the Dutch Jews. The  Bombay "Guardian" gives a dialogue  on "transmigration" of souls, between  two gentlemen ot this nationality. As  the doctrine Is often found to be a difficult one for Western comprehension,  we give the "Guardian's" report of the  conversation, which has the merit ot  being   at  least    a    clear,   statement:  Naked Greeks and Romans.

In our cnrelessnf-.is we may often  tempt other people without'knowing It.  Sir Edward Malet writes hi "Shifting  Scenes" that he had gonf> to a hotel, at  Milan, and eager to see the sights, sallied forth, leaving his portmanteau  yawning, his dressing-case ajar, and  money on the table.  I thought ot nothing save that I was  once more in rtaly. Still, I locked my  door, and took the key with me. When  1 came back, an aged and shriveled  housemaid followed me Into my room.  She was wringing her hands.  "Ah, mlo slgnore," cried she, going  up to the dressing-table and opening a  little drawer.   "Is this yours?"  In the drawer lay ten or a dozen gold  pieces.  "Yes." I said, "they are mine."  "Ah,  slgnore, how could you do It?  How could you leave this money about?  It was all lying on the table."  "Why, I locked my door.' I knew lt  was safe."  "No," she cried, "ltlwas not safe! It  was cruel to put such temptation ln  my way!" She Bank upon a chair and  burst Into tears. "Think of, me, slgnore. I am very poor. I have nix children to keep and a husband who can  do no work. The money would mako  roe rich, and you leave It on the table,  the gold pieces all loose to dazzle my  eyes and to put the devil into my  heart! Through your thoughtlessness  I might go to Jail, my children might  starve, my husband die. Ah, slgnore  mlo, never do It again! Think of the  poor. Be merciful to us. Do not put  temptation ln our way."  It does not seem to have occurred to  Sir Edward Malet that possibly the old  housemaid was trying to work him for  a gift of the gold pieces.  lt  tdrampsmikrashun.

Dr. Casagrandl, In rending a paper  before a medical association In Bom**.  stated that he had employed a numb-ji  of women wearing long skirts to walk  tor one hour through the streets of the  city, and, after the promenade wa."  over, he had taken, these skirts and  had them submitted to a very careful  bacterlologlc examination. There were  found on every skirt large colonies of  noxious germs. Including those of typhoid fever, consumption. Influenza  and tetanus (or lock-jaw). Numerous  other bacilli were likewise well represented on each skirt. Dr. Casagrandl  maintained that, in view of these facts,  women, and especially mothers, should  at once discontinue wearing trailing  akirts, and other members of the Medical Congress unhesitatingly expressed  the same opinion, and passed resolutions to that effect. That women should  subject themselves to the filth, to say  nothing of the possible dangers of  trailing gowns, has long been a wonder  to those acquainted with bacteriology.  Nevertheless, so long as fashion calls  for long skirts, no reform can be expected, for thc great majority of wo-  ' men are bound to be ln thc fashion regardless of any ordinary considerations. There la some encouragement,  however, in the fact that many ot the  younger women of the present wear  their golt and bicycle skirts throughout  thp day, and merely dress for dinnct  and the evening.   _    _^i  that lovely Joconde, dressed nearly up  to the neck, with her charming smile  and interesting face.

FRANKFORT-ON-THE - MAIN is  not generally regarded as,a very  Important financial center, but  for more than a century lt has been  the headquarters of the foremost banking-house of modern times���������the Rothschilds. It was In this city that the  great establishment had its modest  beginning, and since rising to aflluence  and power and extending Its operations to all parts of the globe, the ancient seat has never been abandoned.  The following facta regarding the origin and development of the Rothschild  house are taken from the August Issue  qf the "Bankers' Magazine:"  The founder of the house was Mayer  Anselm (1743-1S12), the son ot Ansolm  Moses Bauer, a small Jewish merchant  of Praiiktort-oii-tho-Maln. His father  wished hi in to become a rabbi, but he  preferred business, nnd ultimately set  up as a money-lender at thc sign ot  the "Red Shield" (Rothschild) ln the  Frankfort Judongasse. He negotiated  his first great government loan with  Denmark In 1S02, and his transactions  on behalf of William, Elector of 1-Iossc-  Cassel, were so profitable that when ho  died ten years later he was a very  wealthy man. He left behind him tlvo  sons, and branches ot the business were  established ln Vienna, London, Paris  and Naples, each being ln charge of  one of tho sons.  The third of those brothers, Nathm  Mayer, has generally been regarded a3  the financial genius of tho family and  the chief originator of the transactions  which have created for the house Us  unexampled position In the. financial  world. lie came to Manchester about  1S00 to act as a purchaser of manufactured goods tor his father: but at the  end of five years he removed to London, where lie found full scope for his  financial genius. The boldness and skill  of his transactions, which caused him  at first to be regarded as rash and unsafe by the loading banking firms and  financial merchants, latterly awakened  ���������their admiration and envy. By the  employment of carrier-pigeons and  fast-sailing boats of hi-*; o..*n for the  transmission of news, he was able lo  utilize to t'.n best advantage his special sources ot Information, while no  one was a greater adept in the art of  promoting the rise and fall of the  stocks.  The colossal Influence of the house  dates from an operation of his In 1810.  In that year Wellington made some  drafts" which the English Government  could not meet; these were purchased  by Rothschild at a liberal discount,  and renewed to the Government, which  finally redeemed at par. From this  time the house became associated witn  the allied powers In the 'struggle  against Napoleon, it being chielly  through lt that they were able to negotiate loans to carry on' the war.  Rothschild never lost faith In the ultimate overthrow of Napoleon, his all  being virtually staked on the Issue of  the contest. He Is said to have been  present at the Battle of Waterloo,  and to have watched the varying  fortunes of the day with feverish  eagerness. Being able to transmit to London private Information  of the allied success several hours  before it reached the public, he secured  an Immense profit by the purchase of  stock, which had- been greatly . depressed on account of the news of  Blucher's defeat two days previous.  Rothschild was the first to popularize foreign loans In Britain by fixing  the rate in sterling money and making  -the dividends payable in London and  not ln foreign capitals. Latterly he  became the financial agent of nearly  every civilized government. It Is said  that since 1S15 the Rothschilds havo  raised for Great Britain alone more  than $1,000,000,000; for Austria, $250,000.-  000; for Prussia, $200,000,000; for France,  $400,000,000; for Italy, $300,000,000; for  Russia, $125,000,000; for Brazil, $70,000,-  000.  In 1895 they took $15,000,000 of the  February loan of. the United States  through the Belmont-Morgan syndicate.  There are at present living eleven  barons of the Rothschild name. Of  these Nathaniel, Alfred and Leopold  are located ln London; Gustav, Ed-.  ward, Adolphe and James are in Paris,  and Nathaniel, a baron ot the Austrian Empire, is head of the house ln  Vienna.  "Maintaining an identity as unchangeable as the Hebrew race to  --wlilch-they=belong,_and __\ylth_purposea^  as inflexible as - the ruler of Russia,  and a policy as far-seeing aa tho  Church of Rome," says the "Bankers*  Magazine," "the Rothschilds have  steadily built up the prestige of their  name until It now outranks that ot any  other, while their fortune has grown  year by year until It has attained to  Colossal figures. Those who have a talent for gucaslntr have set the actual  sum ,at two thotlftfllid million dollars,  but until somo member of tn. firm displays a confidential mood, th-3 correctness ,of this conjecture musf remain  unverified. Whatever the amount may  bo, Its vastn-ss is undouble1., and the  HRcuniulatlonj of a century and a half  are being swe'ilcd ench ho\i.* by Innumerable trlb.itos from every quarter  of the world."  T  He Said "No."  HE great Young Men's Christian   Association   Convention  recently      held      in      Boston  brought    delegates   from   all  parts of the world to testify  to the value of the Christian religion  as the highest rule of  conduct for a  practical life.    It was natural, as the  delegates met each other, for them to  exchange vital  experiences.    The  following was told by one who had traveled eight  thousand miles  to attend  the meetings:  "My father was a rancher on a small  scale ln Australia. He had only a  thousand sheep or so ana a couple of  square miles of run for pasture. He  was 'an English emigrant of sturdy  yeoman stock, and while the free lite  of a shepherd had taught him tolerance  and kindness, he remained true ln  principle to the strict lessons of his  early years.  "The nearest neighbor or station was  ten miles uway, but the ranchmen used  to think nothing of riding twenty or  forty miles to a centrally located farm  on Saturdays to spend the night ln  carousal, and ride back on Sunday.  "The Isolation wns so depressing and  the heat so exhausting that when the  men came together once a week in this  way, drinking and gambling seemed  inevitable. In the kindled passion and  excitement ot these coarse pleasures  thoy thought they might forget for a  few hours the suffering and privation  of their lot.  "At last it was my father's turn to  entertain.   He must invite the herders,  of the kraals and ranches within a radius of nearly fifty miles.  " 'Boys,' he said to his two sons, my  brother and myself, "It's the parting ot  the ways. ' We either live as we have  lived, simply, ln the fear of God, minding our business, paying our debts if  we can, saving our money if possible,  and being cut by every man round  here, or we fall into the ways of our  neighbors, and drink and gamble ourselves into perdition. I am not going'  to break your mother's heart, and I  say "No," even I.f they burn us down."  "It was the critical moment of our  lives. I could have fallen at my father's feet and worshipped him whon he  made that decision. He looked like a  god���������determined  and Invincible.  "So it came about that my brother  and I divided the circuit between us,  and I rode to the north and he to tlie*  south. To every ranchman this message went: 'Father Invites you for Saturday and Sunday as usual. There will  be no cards or liquor���������only a quiet talk  about old England and the welfare of  the colony.'  "We waited that Saturday afternoon  with trembling, not expecting a Blngle  guest. But suddenly one rode up, and  then another, and another, until the  whole section was represented. Thero  never had been so large a gathering.  They came in curiosity and with respect. .   -'"  "With mother opposite him, father  said grace .at table, and we boys saw  tears flow down rugged cheeks. That  night the men talked long about bush-'  men and rabbits and fences and'  drought, and how to stand by each  other.  "The next morning, as he did every  Sunday morning, father conducted  prayers, this time before fifty of the,  roughest men I had ever seen assem-,  bled; and there was singing of hymns,  broken here and there by sobs and  tears.

P  A Dearth of M Hold-ups."    }  REVIOUS'to Mr. McKlnley'a first  Inauguration,   his   acquaintance  with the members of his Cabinet  vai a very slight one, only Mr. Sherman* fcelng  at  all  intimate  with  th������  Chief Executive.      The    getting    acquainted waa rather of slow progress,  as all .were, engrossed In their,new and  intricate duties.   One evening the conversation   chanced   to   turn   upon   the .  youthful  ambitions  of   the  members, j  Each  related his  early plans  for the'-   ,  future,   and  when  Secretary Wilson's  turn came, the Iowan said: "My ambition   has   not   yet   been   realized.      I  wanted to be worth $1,000,000 and have  two good pairs  of suspenders  at  the  same  time.    As yet, I have neither."  The   Cabinet   unofficially .laughed   at  this   frank  confession,   and   Secretary  Gage,  after a  minute,  confessed  that  he had nevoi* simultaneously possessed  two  pairs  of    dependable  suspenders.  Secretary  Long  remarked   that  when  he   graduated   from   Harvard  lie   had  two pairs ot new trousers,, each with  good new galluses,  but  that  the experience had never responded to an encore; while the now Justice McKonna  said thnt, although ho came from the  Pacific Slope, two pairs ot "hold-ups"  were unknown  to him.    Others made  similar confessions, and linally Secretary Bliss, the wealthiest man present,  said with a laugh:  "This seems to bo  a strange coincidence.   Last Saturday  evening Mrs. Bliss came ln to my study  and said: 'Papa, are you going out at  all this evening?' I replied that I did  not so Intend, and asked the reason of  her  question.    'Oh,   nothing,'   sho  replied,   'only  If you   are   not,  Ed'���������our  son���������'wants to use your only good suspenders.' "  As a sort of final course to this tale,  Mr. McKinley tells that Secretary Wilson related this conversation at the  breakfast table the morning following.  Three of his children were present..' It  was In the early holiday season. Each  of the children sat interested and observing. Christmas tame, and ln the  stocking of the Secretary of Agriculture were found three dozen pairs of ���������**  suspenders of a high degree of excel- '  lence. The children had. remembered  the story. AU Secretary Wilson then  needed fo realize his youthful ambition was the $1,000,000.

HEODORE ROOSEVELT, the new  President of the United States,  was not always the mighty hun-  .ter he is now. He has had his  day of being afraid of big game. --'But  that was many years ago, when he was'  a wee little boy in short trousers and  used to play tag in Madison Square In  New York. <  Opposite the square on the east side  stood a Presbyterian church, and the  sexton, while airing the. building one  Saturday,, noticed a small boy peering  curiously in"at_th"er half-open-doorf-but*  making no move to enter.  . "Come in, my. little man, If you wish  to," said the sexton. ,     [  "No, thank you," said the boy. ' ''I  know what you've got in there."  "I haven't anything that little boys*  mayn't see.   Come in."  "I'd rather not." And the juvenile  Theodore cast a sweeping and somewhat apprehensive glance around the  pews and galleries and bounded off to  play agnln.    f *,  Still the lad kept returning once in a  while and peeping ln. When he went  home that day he told his mother of  the sexton's Invitation and his unwillingness to accept it.  "But why didn't you go ln, my.  dear?" she asked. "It Is the house of  God, but there is no harm ln entering  lt quietly and looking about."  With some shyness the little fellow  confessed that he was afraid to go In  because the zeal might jump out at  him from under a pew or somewhere.  "The zeal? What is the zeal?:'-, the  mother enquired.  "Why," explained Theodore, "I suppose it Is some big animal like, a dragon or' an alligator.    I went there to  church last Sunday with Uncle R ,  and 1 heard the minister read from tho  Bible about the zeal.'and it frightened  me."' o,  Down  came   the  Concordance   from  the library shelf, and one after anoth-%  er  of  the  te_cts  containing -the  word",  "zeal"  was' read  to  the  child,  whose  eyes suddenly grew big and his voice  excited, as lie exclaimed:  "That's it���������the"'Vast; you read!"

The law  governing   it   was   undoubtedly  ~. founded on more than a superficial knowledge of human nature, - and  Is   productive   of   advantages..   "Marriage In haste" among1 the Tagacaolos,  of Mindanao, therefore, leads to a very  prolonged and literal "repenting at leisure."   Upon the death of the-wife the  widower must  pay  a* certain sum of  money, or a certain amount of goods to  his father-in-law before he .Is entitled  to look, about-for an eligible successor  to the "deceased.   With them money Is  oi rare article, and the. usual means ot  barter Is by plates of the ordinary Ironstone pattern.   One hundred of these is  considered ample payment to'the bereaved parents, and then the man may  "a-wooing go."   On the other hand, if  the husband dies, the widow at once  becomes the slave  of her parents-ln-  law, and so  remains  for life,  unless  some relative comes forward, and produces the requisite payment. '.The natural  result  of  this   rule ' Is. .that  alt  married  people -are   extremely  solicitous of one another's health and-welfare.   In sickness the-invalid is scrupulously  attended  to  by  husband  or  wife, who is perhaps haunted more Ijy  a thought of those one hundred plate's  than by .fear of death in the family.  Divorce they know not, but polygamy  Is universal," and a man may have as  many wives as his means permit of.  Therefore, in case of 'the death of a  much-married man his parents either  have enough slaves to render future  work on their part unnecessary, or else  they'are ln a position to open:"up a  crockery store.   A cheap means of life  Insurance, this payment is called "ca-  baloan" or "the widow tax."  is*-  A'  i  '���������si  Wx  V..1.1  On tbe Beach.

The coronation ib over, hut it may bo  of interest to quote from The Times an  evidently ofiieial account of the royal  coronation robes. The King, The Times  said the day, before the coronation, will  go to the Abbey in a crimson satin un-  ' dcr-rohe which reaches "to his knees. Over  this rote he will wear his crimson Parliamentary robes, but these latter robes  he will take off at the Abbey. The vestments which the King will* put on after  the ceremony of the anointing are:���������(1)  The eolobium sindonis;  (2)  the tunicle,  ..otherwise   called   the   dalmatic, super-  tunica, or close pall; (3) the armilla or  stole; (4) the Imperial mantle or pall.  The eolobium sindonis is a simple lawn  garment.' The tunicle is a long coat of  cloth of gold with -wide sleeves. It  V meets in front, just below the throat,  and falls"; straight to the feet, complete,  ly enveloping the King. ��������� The edges,  : Where it meets, are embroidered for the  ���������width of four Inches on either side, so  that -when the garment is fastened there  is a broad hand of embroidery running  down its whole length in front:" This is  the only decoration of the tunicle,whieh,  therefore, except for thi3 embroidery,  presents an unbroken surface of cloth of  gold of the most splendid description.  The embroidery is in silk of a dead gold  color, the design being one of a conven-  ��������� tional ecclesiastical character! possessing  ���������;.- no emblematical   significance.  The armilla or stole is a band of clojh  of gold, three inches wide, with bullioD  fringe at each end. _ It is heavily embroidered with silken thread and a little-  color. Tlie central ornament is a pink  rose. The remaining ornaments are the  eagles and other emblems also to be seen  upon- the mantle. Each of these em-  ; "biims is divided from the next^one to it  ���������by a. Bilver coronet, and at'each end is  a square panel with a blue and white  torse-above and below, worked with-a  ted cross of St.- George "on "a silver'  ground. It is lined with rose silk. The  "ornaments on this stole resemble those  <m the-stoles worn by Charles II. and  . flames II., but are more ornate.  .'The Imperial mantle or pall resembles-  a cope, and just fits on .to the .shoulders,  being fastened in front by a morse oi  clasp.   - It is worn -over the unicle,  and,  like it, is made of cloth of gold.    The  cloth "of gold has been  made of plate-  gold threads .worked upqn-silk.   It -was  desired to "obtain for th'e cloth of gold  -������ peculiar-shimmering    appearance, so'  that in any light, and from any point  of view, the cloth  should glitter    and  sparkle -with splendid effect.   * A   very  great number of specimens of cloth were  - made, submitted, and rejected before the  .one finally adopted was approved.  - The cloth has been woven in a loom  in such a -way that none of the gold surface of -the fine gold threads, has been  sacrificed; , the gold threads are. reolly  laid on a background of silk, and-very  minute threads hold them in. their place.  ���������JJeneath* the silk biibis is n stilt muslin,  "   -and next to this comes the lining,* -which'  - _Js of an Indian red satim   Itswill be ap-.  parent from this description that - the'  mantle is one of truly regal magnificence". Upon the cloth of gold of the  Imperial mantle there hns been embroidered a design of laurel leaves  ' forming a background rather subscr-"  ���������yicnt to the general adornment of the  - "robe; which consists of    emblems "em  broidered ia various colors.   Tliis background has    been    produced    by    line  *   stitches of the various silks used in the  "*"���������   emblems, and these stitches again have  *.   been covered over with silver and gold  .    threads, the whole being drawn togeth-  ;    er.with an outline of tine gold. v..The  .reason  fof the ' introduction -.'of...this'  background" isl that the .cloth ; of'gold  -   alone.would-have been too mono tonoiw  in*its splendor^and that.- the .'emblems  could not be embroidered upon its surface with satisfactory    effect    without  "^~the~provisfbn���������of���������soin'e'^^suhordinato  acheme of decoration.   The'emblems are  encircled .by .the laurel    leaves   (which  form wreaths or chaplets),* and consist  of the ImperialJ Crown,    the   Imperial  ' ��������� eagle, the rose, shamrock *and    thistle,  and the lotus flower, the emblem of la*  ���������'    dia.    The eagles arc embroidered in sii*  ���������ver, the lotus flower in white, the rose,  shamrock and thistle in their    natural  colors.    These emblems    arc    repeated  over  thc whole surface    of the"   robe,  . and, with -the laurel loaf ornamentation,  add greatly to its richness iind magnifl-  - cence. Tho eagleB arc-emblems of. great  antiquity, nnd arc no doubt derived  from  the Imperial eagles    of    ancient  . Rome".    They  ore here the symbol  of  ' empire, nml  are    treated    heraldieally.  The lotus flower, of course, now  finds  its place for the first'time on a British  . coronation mantle, and it is treated in a  . more conventional manner than are tlie  'a  rose, shamrock and, thistle.       y_ -"'  The WelBlit ot FecdJi.

Perkins,  the partner of Ji Ficrpont Morgan.  Mr. FerkuiB, who is a comparatively  young man���������forty years of age���������was selected for this exigent position by Fier-  pont Morgan for his.great ability���������physical as well as mental ability, liis biographer Bays:  "He is just under six feet, powerful,  takes much outdoor exercise, and cats _���������  jgreat deal of dinner. But ho is not one  of those madmen who.in the middle of  the day fill themselves with food which  prevents thoir brains from acting and  wliich the struggling brain prevents the  Btomach from.. digesting."  Tlint a business ninn should abstain  Prom "filling himself.with food" at midday is indeed unusual.' Tlio belief that  we all need three solid mehls a day dies  hard. "Food and Feeding," by Sir  Henry Thompson, one of tho great physicians of England, has for years been  a standard: on dietetics. It has gone  through many editions. It is written on  the generous English plan, for in England tliey seem to get away with larger  quantities: of beef and beer, than the  average man can assimilate. In Merry  England, the traditional three" meals a  day are often supplemented by a hearty  luncheon called' " five o'clock ten," ami  a late supper as well. Contemplating  these gastronomic feats of his British  brother, the gaunt American can only  regard him with unenvious admiration.  , In the carlier editions of his book Sir  Henry, advocated "moderation." British  "moderation", seems to mean feeding not  more than -four times a day, and not  eating more than four courses for. each  meal.-' But with-the flight of.years, Sir  Henry has modified his ideas. He no  longer considers it wise for a man to  Jill himself' full up to his neck, in Uie  latest edition of his hook heiulniits that  a man may struggle - along on - three  meals a dny, instead of five, and still retain his health. This: is a distinct concession.  .Medical writers say that a well-known  English physician took as liis solo nutriment, during the last sixteen years of  his life, thiee pints of milk daily. Yel  on this diet lie not only sustained life,  but was able to perfoim all the duties  of his arduous profession.  How suicidal this would seem to tha  average business man in this country,  says the "Argonaut." That gentleman  rises in" the morning; he eats either  "mush and milk," or porridge of (-.onie  kind concocted of the new' breakfast  cereals, with thick, clotted cream; he  follows this with a couple of cgg-i, boil-d  or poached, with ham or bacon; if he is  really hungry, ho majv perhaps,- take a  couple of chops; he will follow with a  large cup of coffee, and top off with  some buckwheat cakes and maple syrup.  He goes to his ^office and spends a" biisy  forenoon; at one o'clock he goes to  his club or his favorite restaurant, and  takes a "light lunch"; it probably includes soup, a bit of fish, an entree, and  perilaps. a slice of the joint; he may  take a vegetable or a salad, and perhaps  sonic dessert���������say," a pudding or an ice.  In the- Eastern -States, 'if he lives in  the Great Pie Belt, lie finishes his lunch  with pic. In the darker parts of the  New England Pie Zone, pie i3 eaten for  breakfast. '    "  With this mysterious mass of viand3  under his hclt;-'tha' business man goes  back to his ollice and endeavors to labor.  But mental, labor is difficult when so  much digestive labor is thrown upon  ���������his organs, ne returns to his home at  nightfall wilh a partially digested  luncheon, mul there pnTtakcs of a heavy  dinner. Dinner is tlie meal of the day.  If he is a prosperous person, it will  consist 'of at least soup, fish,' entree,  vgctables., joint, and dessert. Ho may  take a little red wine with his dinner,,  and if he. and .his .wife have an anniversary or a birthday, he will add to it a  little champagne. Then he retires to  his couch, and ha3 bad dreams. He wonders why.  Pierpont Morgan's partner, who skips  luncheon in the middle of the day,  would iloubtles*** be looked upon wilh  hojror by "most'���������' business inch. If the  average business man-confined his lunch-  con**" to-a glass of milk and a biscuit,  his;partner would ask him if.he was  "not feeliiig ,well," while'his wife, if she  knew it,'would grow'seriously alarmed,  and send for the doctor. So the business  man on this continent goes on eating  three squa~re~mcals~a~day,���������and- digging  his grave with his teeth.  The flowers the bride shall carry,  Writes Martha -.Coman in "Leslie's  Weekly," is a question to be decided by her own individuality, for every  girl has her favorite, and her wedding  day is a welcome opportunity to make  her choice a public one." The bride's  bouquet is not invariably of pure white,  though the paler colors are more effective and much more acceptable than the  deeper ones of.rcd or pink. Lilies of the  valley made up into one of the beautiful  shower bouquets are about as appropriate for the fair maiden aa anything,  though there are innumerable combinations possible in the way of orchids and  violets.  The shower bouquet is rarely successfully turned out by an amateur, and  those persons who save the last sweet  service of personally arranging the  bride's flowers for their own fingers had  best not attempt much in the way of a  shower. But the palest of pink roses or  thc beautiful bride ro3CS are at hand  and can be easily arranged. Tho sweet,  old-fashioned White lilac is a most acceptable flower to use when the bouquet  is put together by loving hands rather  than by busy professional ones, and it  lends itself easily to an admirable result.  White orchids combined with the delicate green of the Farloycncis fern make  a stunning bouquet, especially when the  whole is tied lavishly with broad, soft  velvet ribbon that matches exactly in  shade tlie delicate petals of the rare exotic. .-���������This flower and fern, put together  in the-form called the "Princess I?lume"  bouquet, is a most beautiful and effective-accessory to the bride's attire.  The violet cull' bouquet was a fad for  a time, ns was also the Du Barry collarette of the same modest but popular  flower. The collarette and cuff., effects  wero generally used only for the bride's  attendants, the bride herself carrying n  huge shower bouquet- of white violets.  Leghorn hats of white, lavishly decorated with pink roses and tied on witli broad  streamers of ribbon to match, are very  pretty for biiilesinnids, audit i3 then n  most effective idea to have tlie attendants carry only large bunches of waving,, feathery, maidenhair fern. Wild  sweet-brier roses and apple blossoms are  very lovely for 'floral decorations, but  they are" rather difficult to manage when  it come3 to the bouquets, and so they  are both more popular lor wall and aisle  decorations.  London's Pot-Boilers.  There   are   men   in   London    to-day,  says    an     English     paper,    who,    In  preference      to    starving,    are     glad  enough to turn out oil paintings at thc  ridiculous remuneration    of    fourpence  each, for which work they iind a steady  demand.   The work, of course, has to bo  [ executed with extreme dexterity, or the  artist would .realize-but'a <poor living,  but some smart men, aided by oho or  two deft assistants, can complete from  200 to 300 of these "pictures" in a week,  though they have to toil early and late  to accomplish their arduous task.   When  a big order comes in for a gross of oil  paintings, to be finished within a specified period for a wholesale firm, the  method of work is usually as follows:  Along the walls of the apartment wherein the artists work arc stretched bo many  J'ards of canvas, whicli is marked into  engths, according to thc size of the pictures ordered.   Then the work is equally  divided among the artist and his colleagues, each man being responsible for  one part of every picture.  One will paint  the trees, another tho sky, a third will  put in a bit of sea or hike, and a fourth  will add a few figures to impart animation to the scene.   Eneli man selects thc  Particular line in whicli he can do hi*  est and quickest work, nnd  all labor  with a strict eye to time and business.  In one studio devoted to the fourpenny  oil paintings, there arc h������tlf a dozen girls  who work eighty hours a week, and these  earn only from twelve to fifteen shillings  each.    Thoy work  for a big wholesale  houso on the Continent, and their specialty is the showy little landscape or  marine  paintings  so  familiar  to,those  who patronize tlie itinerant auctioneer  or the cheap house furnisher.   Incerdiblc  though  it  may   seem,  there   are  some  sweating firms who expect the artist to  find his or -Iier own canvas and colors,  and then to" turn out oil  paintings af  fourpence apiece!    But the belter class  dealers provide  the niateiials or make  an allowance for the extra cost.  -Lbs.    Oz.

"I am not house-cleaning, 1  allow dust and cobwebs., on my bottles  only���������not on my books.'r - ���������  "Then this rite of yours���������" I began.  ' "That Is the word," said he, pausing a  moment to taste what I had said. ������������������ "It is  a rite, and,only the'elect, the knowing,  aTe worthy "to witness it." - ��������� -  "Seal me of the tribe," said I.  "I fear you could not understand,"  answered he, Bhaking his head doubtfully. "But listen,' I was perfume hunting  on the works of Charles Lamb.

The two volumes of  letters are.'also [rather rare, but somehow* this is the most delicate in odor of  the'entife.'set. Try it," he added, generously, handing over the volume. I sought  to remember how he had held it.  "  "Nearer the'nose," said he; "you're  quite out of range." I adjusted tho book  ' to his satisfaction.'   -  "And now you're ready for turning.''  I passed.the three hundred pages vapidly  in review; before my .waiting "sense of  smell.  '"Your thumb touch is not delicate,"  exclaimed he with some'impatience. "You  bear on too hard. Just see how. you've  blunted the edge of the-leaves. They  should be .sliarp as a razor. Once again."  I exerted myself to please him.  "That's good," said he. "Isn't it delicious?"  "I was so busy with the machinery of  the .thing that I. forgot _to try for the  scent," I had to  confess in some  embarrassment. -_ "And now, finally."

Few phenomena in human experience  are at the same time so common  and so - mysterious as ' sleep. For  hours at a time the.physical senses and  mental faculties remain inactive, ancl  then rather abruptly, acquire their wonted keenness. It has long been known  that age, sex, occupation, state of health  and other influences affect the period  during wliich this suspension of consciousness lasts, and also thc" soundness  ofone's sleep. There is reason to think,  too, that the latter is variable tlirough  the night -with every individual, even  though his slumber may remain practically unbroken. Tliis phase of the subject, however, has not been studied much  until recently. Hence few people realize  how greatly-the depth of sleep fluctuates.   _  In order to get some light on thc question, two investigators in the University  of Rome,,Dr. Sante de Sanctis.and D. U."  Neyroz, conducted a series of experiments which extended through six  months. Nine different persons, four of  whom were thoroughly, healthy and five  of whom had diseased nervous systems,  were the subjects of these tests. The  general plan of procedure was to wait  until after they had fallen asleep and  then employ uniform means to awaken  them... For this purpose an instrument  was used called an esthesiometer.' It was  made up of a blunt point that might  be pressed against the skin, a spiral  spring arid a, carefully - graduated scale  wliich showed the degrees" of pressure  used. The point was applied gently to  tho sleeper's left temple, and pressed until, he awoke, then tlie scale was examined and note3 were made of the hour  and minute and of the scale reading. The  same person was not awakened more  than once ^or twice a night, but the experiments ' were ' so tirned-.that in the  course of a few months they covered the  whole eight-hour period during which  sleep lasted, aif intervals" often or "fifteen  minutes, several "times /over. -.   ': ���������  These data, haying been tabulated,  show that'the soundest sleep in tlie four  healthy subjects "occurred Detwcen - an  hour and a quarter and an hour and a  half after dropping off._JOncouBciousneRs  rapidly and almoBt steadily - increased  during that period, and then in the next  quarter or half hour diminished greatly.  Thereafter surprising oscillations were  detected. On the,average,'though, the  stages of lightest sleep occurred about  four and a. half. and again live and a  half-hours after-theJjeghiniiig._.Aj3horti  low, secondary maximum - of intensity  followed in the next hour and a half or  two hours. From,thia point thc decline  was rapid to the final awakening. .  In epileptics and paralytics very much  the same state of things was observed,  except that they slept more profoundly  than thc healthy subjects, and iu one  person the unconsciousness at the end  of fifteen minutes was almost as marked  as at an hour and a half.  Pace In Reading.  'A common and   trivial  excuse   given  \y    those   who    read    little    is   that  they    havo    no    time    for     reading.  One may  have no  time for eating or  sleeping, but hardly  no  time to  make  love or to read.   It is good will, concentration, and thc habit of despatch, not  leisure or unlimited opportunity, which  have    always performed the    greatest  v.onderB  in" both   of   these  useful  pursuits.. Many persons in mature life are  conscious of a gentle and luxurious sentiment in favor of reading, which comes  to  nothing because tliey  do  not  know  how to rend.   With all "the good-will in  the world, they lack concentration and  the . habit   of  despatch.    The good-will  was lint applied early enough, or not applied at all to any other end than the  Inzy  diversion of  a moment,    This nu-  turiilly resulted in thc formation of the  newspaper  habit,  by   which   1   do   not.  nienii simply the habit of reading news*  papers,   but the   linbit  of  iniiul  whicli  makes it possible for men lo spend nu  evening in going through motions. There  is   no   more   reason   for  spending   two  hours in lending the newspaper than in  having one's IiooN blacked.   .Some people  never make their way  into  the grent.  Establishment  of  l.i't.lor*.   further  Hum  the   vestibule,  where  they spend  thriv  lives contentedly  playing  marbles-willi  the hall-boys.   Of course we do not cull  the newspaper worthless simply been us.*  some other things arc worth more.   The  hest reading is both  intensive nnd  extensive; one reads a little of everything,  and a great deal of sonic things.   The  guild reader takes nil rending lo be his  province.   Newspapers, periodicals, book*,  old and new, till present themselves  to  hiin iu their proper perspective; tliey am  all grist to his mill, but tliey do not go  into the same hopper or require the saiiiu  process.    On the  contrary,  one.  of  tho  main distinctions of the clever reader is  that without varying ns to intensity, he  varies almost   indefinitely   as   to   pace.  This   power   of   reading   flexibly   comes  mainly, of course, with  practice.    For  those who havo lacked an early experience of books, tlie manipulation of tlieni  is never likely to become tlie perfect and  instinctive process of adjustment which  it should be.   People often achieve a cer-,  tain.degree of education unci refinement  late -in  life, but  seldom, I  think,  the  power of tlie accomplished reading man.  It-is simply not  to bo-.expected.    An  adult who takes up the violin may get  much amusement and profit from liis instrument, but he cannot hope to master  it.    A certain increase of facility, however, the belated reader may Bufely expect to gain from some sort of observance of this simple principle of adjustment.  This anxious but unskilled reader is  too likely to have a set gait, so many  words to the minute or lines to the hour.  An essay, an editorial, a chapter in a  novel or in the Bible, a scientific article,  a short story, if they contain the somi*  number of wor.ds, take up just the same  amount of thia misguided person's tinif*.  No wonder reading becomes an incubus  to him, with the appalling monotony of  its procession of printed words filing endlessly before him. He really has time  enough, if he knew how to make uso of  it. Eben Holden keeps him busy-for a  week* or more; it should be road in a  few hours. He .plods . methodically  through Sir Walter, and finds him slow *,  the happy reader who can get Quentin  and his Isabelle satisfactorily married in  six hours does not. The trained reader  readjusts his focus for oach objective.  Milton may bo read in words or lines,  Macaulay in sentences, ' Thackeray in  paragraphs, Conan Doyle in pages.. The  eye, that Is, readily gains the power of  taking in words in groups instead of  separately. How large a 'group tlie  glance can manage varies with Uie, seriousness of the subject. With'the same  degree of. concentration, eye and .mind  will tako care of a page of the "Prisoner  All the Anthracite In the World  A Complete Rest  Tipton shut down the roll-top desk In'  In a renowned strip of land of say, "r                .      wUh a barg   threw a.  fifteen    by    seventy    miles     near    tho Wj P������ ��������������������� ��������������� envelope   into   the   waste-  center   of   tho   State   of   Pennsylvania I'^et  and turning with smiling lace to  is contained all tlie true anthracite coal ^'k|j' "g ,vho haTl gathered in a little  in the world.

In the East, in the small strip of coast  line embracing the larger cities of the  United States, tho householder knows  no fuel but anthracite coal.

There the rich and poor alike burn  bituminous coal, all carefully screened  and prepared for domestic uses, and in  improved burners wlio3e perfect combustion prevents thc escape of wasteful  smoke. For smoke is simply unburnt  coal, is nearly pure carbon, and should  be consumed.���������William Jaspar Nicolls Id  "Era."  ���������Twas Ever Thus.

On the Amenities of Travel.  To a friend who was going to travel  on the Continent, the late William  Black, tlie novelist, once wrote a  letter, which very amusingly lilts oft  the most objectionable practices of the  average Cockney tourist: "Yo.r-'mu������t  be *sure, whatever custom house officers, station-masters, or policamea may  do to you, never to strike them. It's  no use. They have the law on tbeli  side, and in Italy they put thumb-  sorews on' yiou.

As they sped out into  the open country, Tipton looked at Mrs.  Tipton with a fond, exultant look.  " There, my dear," he said; " we'ro  off at last!

An hour later they  were strolling down tlirough tlio quiet  woods to the bank7 of the stream that  chippcred away to the music of the  breeze.  " Could anything,*' murmured Tipton,  "be. finer J"  He pressed his wife's hand. M This is  rest. This is true solitude.

"This is a great place to rest,"' he  observed, somewhat tritely, as they  walked off toward the stream. " Never  was in a place quite like this. Couldn't  even get a morning paper."  Mrs. Tipton looked at him suspiciously. .   '  " Now, dear," she said, " that isn't  fair.   You must forget the world."  At noon Tipton sought-the proprietor  once more. -  His face wore a shade of anxiety. * lio  clutched his cigar nervously.

Taylor Bros, k George  Limited.  ~*&  Travelling Safer in Great Britain  The report of H. A. Walker, the  expert sent by the London and Nortli  Western Railroad to America to investigate railroad conditions there, has  been published, Mr. Walker sums up  as follows: ���������  ,  "It will be seen from the figures  before you that, the American companies have nothing lo boast of in the  safety of their passengers or employees.  On the contrary, human life seems to  considered uf much ��������� less importance  there than here. I am of tlie opinion  that in this respect the British railway  officials have nothing . whatever to  learn  from their American confreres."  Mr. Walker gives figures showing  that twice as many passengers are  carried on the United Kingdom lines  as on the American, though the latter  have a nine times greater mileage,  while American figures show a much  larger proportion of accidents and  fatalities to passei.gel's and employees.  The large number of accidents at  crossingsreceives considerable mention  Mr. Walker attributes the larger  proportion of accidents in America to  the "almost general absence of block  working, and to the fact .that the  permanent way is neither laid nor  maintained in the efficient manner  usually adopted  by British railways."  He says that in the generality of  cases there is ro protection at all at  ~the"level crossings^    ~ ~  MEN WANTED.  Shingle Bolt Cutters  Fair Wages aad Permanent Employment.

REVELSTOKE RIFLE ASSOCIATION.  while   in  far   from  home und country. There are a great  many Giniulinns who give Canada this  ki ml of half-citizenship. They have a  contempt for the Jew. who, thoy aay  will live in any country anil he a citizen of none. They hold in contempt  the Chinese, charging against them,  n.*. al.-o again-st the Italians, that thoy  make their money in Canada and they  slip off home to upend it. or .to found  families on it. Yet we havo lots of  half-citizens who, although they make  the country their home, * and abide  hen* with the money they make,  affect to despise thu institutions and  manufactures of thc country. They  import what they sell; they buy what  is imported. To all intents and purposes tliey treat the country as if it  were to this day what it was in the  era of the Hudson Ray posts. The tall  chimneys smoke, and the vast army of  skilled artizans labor, but not for  these. If these men by Canadian  tweed suits, it is from some deceiver,  who tells them the cloth is Scotch  tweed. If they buy expensive furniture made in Canada, it must be  palmed off on them as imported from  somewhere else���������anywhere else. They  persist in refusing to see that old  things have passed away, and that  they arc no longer asked to put up  witli the makeshifts of pioneer days.  They have not yet learned that Cana*  dians are a people, and create for  themselves nearly all that they need.  They have inherited tho habits of the  first"comers, who fought the forest and  used the St. Lawrence river and the  lakes as a line of communication with  the base of supplies. But Canadian  goods are gaining ground, and people  are beginning to give a preference, to  home products."  The new labor union recently formed  in opposition   to  the Canadian Trades  j and Labor  Congress, is reported to be  making rapid strides, and have ul ready  upwards of 25,000 members.
