Telephone No. 81  THE YUKON  MURDERERS  Labelle and Fournier Under  Sentence of Death.���������Will Be  Hanged at Dawson in January.  D.vwsox, Y. T., Due. 1.���������Awaiting  the (pillows, Peter Fournier and  Edward l.a Hello, condemned murderers, wlio for years were friends,  now regard each other in their Dawson prison cells as enemies, and each  complains of lhe other as an annoyance. Between them thpy^ killed  thiee men Beaudoin, Kouthilette. and  Constantino, June 23rd,' 100 miles  above Dawson, on the Yukon. The  law has convicted each of murdering a  man and with this the pursuit of  justice rests.  T'ournior maintained to the last that  T.a iielle killed all three of the vie  linis, and La Belle maintained that  Fournier d:d the murderous work.  This was the attitude of each liefore  the trial, and tlie testimony of each on  the witness stand. Fournier claims  in addition that La Belle killed  Giliault, a fourth man,, below Eagle  on the American side of the- line, but  as the men are under sentence of  death for two specific findings of  murder (igainst them, the case of the  fourth victim will not he sifted.  In'their prison life, La Belle and  Fournier have no interest in common.  Although iu early years they crossed  the Chilcat mountains, struggling side  liy side -and came into-'the Yukon  basin to seek wealth, "and in vicissitudes'continued together until they  wore condemned as murderers, they  now are estranged in their prison cells  and are singularly different in-their  behaviour. ,  _ Fournier asks for" cno ^ spiritual  consolation." La Belle does, Fournier  lias .sworu"'und "liluspheiiied ' boisterously', but'he has'subsided ' to "some  degree of late. La' Belle ha.s heen  more-and more quiet, as though  stunned by the condemnation,'upon  him. .   * - __  Fournier was on trial for seven  hours. Three minutes after the jury  went out it returned and rendered a  verdict of guilty. The work of tha  court and the jurv Hiis seldom been so  swift, so conclusive and so positive in  connection with a case of circumstantial evidence in the modern history of  criminality.  La Belle was on trial five days and  was on the stand a day and a half  himself, Fournier was on trial only  one day,' with a total of seven hours  before the bench, and in the witness  stand not more than an hour.  The story of the various witnesses  against~Fournier^vas"-of-little-moie  value in the case than^to prove that  the man had been with the three  victims on the way down the river;  that he afterwards was in Dawson  with La Belle and had some of the  goods and money of the victims here,  Even .this the defendant admitted  himself.  Fournier, when lie took the stand,  talked freely but without effect. He  reviewed the trip up the Yukon, the  meeting with the three victims, ��������� and  the trip to the island where the  murders were committed,  Then he continued:  '* Landing on the island, we had  supper ur-d went to bed. Bouthilettc  was at our feet. La Belle was next to  the door of the tent. Between 4 and 5  o'clock La Belle awakened me , with a  stick of wood and went away.  " In fifteen minutes Constantine  got up and went out. I heard a shot.  La Belle came back and said Constantine had shot a rabbit. He stood at  the door. Beaudoin went out and  another . shot was heard. Soon  Bouthilette put his head out and La  Belle shot hiin.  " La Belle then called me out.  Constantine was lying on his stomach  near the boat. XVe searched the body  and took $100 and h's gold watch, and  shoved the body ir. ihe river.  " We got $25 from Beaudoin and  then threw his body in the river  From Bouthilette's body we got $3(  and his watch, and threw him in the  river.  '��������� La Belle then proposed that we  burn the clothes. He did, and then  threw a valise in with them. We  kept the blankets and brought them  to Dawson.  " Some blood remained on the boat,  and at La Belle's suggestion I washed  off with a rag. |,  Fournier admitted that he knew he  murders were to be   committed.     He  knew he said, that when Ln Belle  struck him with Ibe wood it was the  signal for the murders.  "Perhaps never again shall any of us  listen to such a Inlo as has been related  lo us by this man," said the ihm and  dignified judge Craig, as he sentenced  Fournier immediately after the trial.  ''It is impossible that, any human  being made in the iinuge of God could  be guilly.-of such a crime." S'lid his  loi'd&hip'when he instructed tbe jury.  "Fourtier helped to rob and do away  wilh bodies. This he admits. He also  admits he knew ihe murders were to  be committed, yet he did not warn the  victims; he remained in the tent, and,  he claims, was silent while tliemiirders  were piogressing. But the surgeons  testify the men weie not, all muidered  wilh the'siime weapons." The judge  pointed out that he who aids a muider  is us guilty as the perpetrator.  The judge advised'the jury its, verdict  of guilty bad"been just; lhat no other  could have been rendered.  Fournier came to his feet wilh a click  of the heels to leceive sentence. He  did not snow a tremor. He heard the  sentence in'firm silence, nnd &aid:  ."What's right is l ight. I'lliiink ynu  very much, judge, tor what you have  given me., ;-I have always been a little  man, and will lake my medicine like a  little innn'i "  Fournier spoke in strange boldness  lhe same way in the jail next day. He  is rational, hut some feel perhaps a  degree of peculiar insanity _ has made  lhe man a'.heartless fiend.  La Belle is to hang January 10th and  Fournier January 20lh.  .- ��������� -  THE FISH RIVER  MINES LIMITED  Livingston-McDonald.

Iron Dolliir, Carbonate Hill,- Little  Johnny, Carbonate Hill Ftactinn and  Giltnan Fraction, in all .about 200  acres of rich mineral lauds, from the  owner Joseph Best. The Hrst payment,  a substantial one, was made, and lhe  bond calls for payment in full for lhe  properly in eighteen months. The  bond holders will transfer their holdings to the Fish River Mines Limited,  a new company now being organized  herewith a.capitalizition of $500,000  in 500,000 shares of the par value of $1  each.  The Silver Dollar Group is situated  on Mohawk creek, a tributary of Pool  creek.in the Fish River mining district.  Mr. Best, who staked this propel ty in  1S97, has put in a great deal of work  in developing it,' and has completed  over $5,000 worth'- ofjwork. There are  on the property two tunnels, one in  107 feet and the other 56-feet, besides  open cuts on the ore veins. "��������� At the  end of the 107 foot tunnel there is now  a showing of about 11 inches of ship"  ping ore, lhat,will average 175ounces  in silver to the ton, besides the'~gold  and lead values. Running parallel  and in -addition to the silvei-Isad  ledges, are two well defined gold leads,  which are exposed right over the hill  onto the famous Benti ice Mines, 1500  feet distant ,frora the Silver Dollar  group.

Even those who deny the personal claims of Christ almost 'universally  praise and accept tha Sermon on thc  Mount as a most perfect precept for  human life. 1 very much question thc  -depth of  this acceptance.  The moral teacher of our day does  not begin hy bio-sing, nnd, if he did,  ���������would begin with some more sturdy vir-  tne than  poverty of spirit.  it is a ma.!'!: of the divine nature ot  the Son of -Man that He does begin so  Iir away from all purtly human teachers, and so truly ln accord with all llh  created woik?. It is a mark of His nil-  embracing mission that lio begins with  ���������-.m blessing on a virtue go simple that  *ny may possess it..  What   is   poverty !      Not  merely  to  ' lack,   but  to   feel  the lack  of  things.  The Indian on this island four hundred  years ago was not poor because he had  no bank account; without It we are.

Nothing Is so exasperating to nn  Invalid as to havo attendants or  members ot tho family ���������svhlsporlnp,  ibout something or other. The sick  person Is generally ln moro or lesa  nervous excitement, and, even If it  were otherwise, nervous excitement  would be produced by the whispering.  The mystery of it is irritating. No  matter how weak or apparently unconscious tho patient niay be, in nine  cases out of ten he Is trying to hoar.  What is being said.  A loud whisper, "Do you think he Is  ftolng to live?" or even, "Hush; you  mustn't como in hero!" Is alarming,  uad lessens the chance"of recovery.  Whatever must be said should be ln  an ordinary tone of voice. Thero  Bhould bo no mystery about tho elck  room.  Gas logs, or gas stoves, arc now, for  two reasons, used .much in the sick  room. Their uso Involves less noise,  and they aro always ready to light. ���������  Caro must be taken, however, that  thero is no leak ln tho connections,  for hardly anything is more Insidious in its effect on a sick person than  escaping gas. A vessel,of water with  a large surface should always bo  placed near the stove or the hearth  where the log is burning, to moisten  the atmosphere ot the apartment. A  boiling kettle on a gas stove, when  thc stove Is used, Is even better.  In sudden Illness those who attend  the sick are too much inclined to fly  to stimulants, especially brandy. It  is a prlnciplo of first aid to the injured that when there is bleeding, even,  when fainting has ensued, alcohol  should never be given, for it causes  increased heart - action, with a consequent increased loss of blood. Thia  is particularly important to remem-  Vi.r in cases   of   bleeding   from   tho  'iUDgS.  When a person faints he 6hould bo  laid flat on his back, and all articles  of clothing that appear tight should  be loosened. Fresh air should be admitted to the room, smelling salts or  hartshorn should be applied to tho  nostrils, and the face and head bathed  wilh cold water. 1������ neither salts nor  hartshorn con be found, a smouldering rag will often revive the patient.  When the person has regained consciousness, of the fainting waa not accompanied by* bleeding or the result  of blooding, then :i small quantity of  '.brandy or other alcoholic btiaiulauf  ui si y-  be safely  administered.  Many doctors still encourage tho  use of thu old fashioned mu.,tard plasters or the Ilax-seed and bread and  milk poultices of our grandmothers'  time. When- r. -mustard piaster or a-  hoi poultice is removed, it is Important to dry thc parts quickly and cover  wth flannel or cotton wool. This is t<?  prevent  cold   from   exposure.  The oiclc room should be a largo and  cheery apartment. The svindows nuu-t  he arranged so thaL the room can be  daikcned when necessary. Often tho  glare of too much light in n largo  room is as depressing to a patient as  tho stiffness o������ a small ono. Once a  day tbe patient should be well wrapped up, and the room aired, no matter  what the weather may be. Rugs aro  better than carpets, and a good matting better than either. Bent wood or  wicker furniture is preferable to tha*-  jvhich is upholstered.  Every day, IE possible, there shou'd  bo a change iu thc general effect produced by rearranging chairs or by  changing thc place of pictures or by  banging new ones, nut the value o������  ihis will be lost unless tho changes  aro made when the patient is unconscious of them.

Mr. Harpy do Windt  Mr. Harry de "Windt, in one of a  series of articles in Tho London Express,  dealing with his overland journey from  Paris to Nesv York, says:���������The natural  charms of Dasvson City have hitherto  been snilly neglected by writers on the  Klondike, and yet it is (in summer) one  of tho prettiest places imaginable. View-  fid from a distance on a still July day,  the clear, bright-looking losvn and garden-girt villas dotting the green fields  around are less suggestive of the bleak  Arctic than of Italy or sunny Spain.  Stroll down the principal street at midday, und you will sec a well-dressed but  cosmopolitan crowd of both sexos, some  driving and cycling, others inspecting  the shops or seated at llosver-hedeckcd  tables in the fashionable French "llcs-  taurnnt du Louvre," with Us white-  aproned "gureons" and central snosvy  nltar of silver, fruit nml hors-d'oeuvres  all complete. Everything has n continental look, from the glittering jewellers' shops to the flower and fruit stalls,  where you may buy roses and strawberries (Klondike-grown) for a dollar  apiece. Indeed, you can get almost anything nosv in Dawson City, by paying  for it on a scale regulated hy "thc local  daily newspaper, which is sold for a shilling���������and sometimes more. The prices  here dwarf those of Nome City. Even in  the cheap eating houses, wliere sausages  steam in the window, the most modest  meal runs away with a five-dollar note.  "Not  a  Scotch  Mint."  While Mr. Hawtrey and his company  were playing "The Grey Mare" to crosvd-  cd houses in ono of our northern tosvns  some years ago, says London "Tit Bits,"  the care of the thunderstorm (the noiso  of the rain being made by the vigorous  rattling of a few peas in a tin box) was  entrusted to an old Scotsman known us  Mac, who had been employed about the  Theatre Koyal for many years and was  now no longer as energetic as he used  to ba. Ou tho iirst night the peas svere  not rattled with suilicicnt energy to  plonse Mr. lluwtrey, who, rushing over  to tho astonished Mac, rattled him, box  and peas together, exclaiming, "Louder,  man, louder !

Boundary disputes usually continue  for long periods of years, but the record  is probably held hy one affecting Hungary and Calieia, which has troubled tho  border since 1370, and which has just  been amicably settled by arbitration. The  urea in dispute is a tract of land some  70 miles south ol Craeosv. and is osvu-  cd partly by Prince lloheiilohc, a German, und partly by Count Zumoyski, nu  exiled J'olish nobleman from "oicu. Iioiii  JlunguriauH nnd J'olcs ns-crlod llieir  claims to tliis region, and tho long dispute has led to much bitter feeling. The  arbitrator, Dr. Winkler, a Uss-yer from  Lucerne, lias nosv decided in favor of  tiie Galician claim, allowing Hungary  only aome twenty acres to straighten her  boundary.  The Slmplon Tunnel.  The Simplon Tunnel, which is to give  nesv railsvay connection    bctsveen Italy  and Switzerland, when completed, will be  about twelve miles, or, to be exact, 19,-  700 metres, in length.     It was begun in  1S!)S, and it  is  anticipated  that  one  ot  the tsvo tunnels will be open for traflic  in   1904.       Tho   hydraulic   drills   have  nosv cut nearly five miles into the solid  rook from the Swiss end at Brigue, and  between three and four  miles  from  tlio  Italian end at lselle, where the dillicul-  ties  havo been greulci���������the large quantity   of   water   encountered     last   year  alone delaying the drilling    for  several  montlis.     Throughout the five miles already   cut  at. Brigue   tho   tunnel   is  iu  various stages of completion.     The iiVst  worle is done by the splendid hydraulic  drills,   which   are   cutting     their     way  through  the solid  rock  at an  average  rate of from li> feel to 24 feet a day, tho  progress varying according to the hardness of the rock encountered.     The drill,  three inches in diameter, slowly rotates,  the     hydraulic    pressure    being     1,500  pounds* to  the inch, or  of  ten  tons on  the cutting point of thc drill.     Water is  discharged along  the  axis of the  tool  right up  to the culling edge,  tho temperature  of  the steel  being  thus  kept  -cool, and the debris washed out of  the  hole.     Three drills are  kept working,  nnd four holes, one above the other, are  cut by each  drill   before the dynamite  cartridges are inserted.     Tho tunnel as  cut   by   these   hydraulic   drills   is   comparatively small, the enlargement to the  Tequired size being entirely completed by  hand hammers, iron pins and dynamite.  The hydraulic drilled tunnel being framed    in    svith  pine   upright     and    cross-  pieces, ohimneys are cut upwards at intervals, and an upper tunnel cut above  the  iirst.      The  layer  of rock  left bctsveen thc two is in its turn cut away,  and then  the first frame.      Finally, tlie  whole tunnel is reframed and supp'orted  with piles and laths, preparatory to ils  ���������being faced with iron girders and cement  blocks.     Not one minute, day or night,  is lost, and only on one day in the year  13 work  stopped���������the    Miners'    Saint's  Day.     The illustration showing hydraulic drills at svork in the tunnel is from  The London Daily Graphic.  Cape of the Horse.  The care of horses seems to be least  taken thought of by our farmers and  horse owners. In the first place, we  should provide clean and comfortable  elables, thoso that will he comfortable  on the coldest days of winter, and  horses should always be kepi clean.

A Chlcu^o  I'ollcenmii.  "Big Steve" ltosvan, a Chicago policeman, about whom many amusing stories  nro lold, ia the hero of au anecdote iu  Lippincott's Magazine. On one occa=ion  ne found a. -weary individual sitting on  thc curbstone. "G'ss'an home!" ordered  Kosvan. "Can't," replied the weary one,  and when he tried to get on hi? feet it  wns evident that he spoke the truth.  He wns too unsteady for the purposes  of successful navigation. "lla-ave yc  th' monsy f'r a cab'-' asked Kowan.  'Xo," angered tho man. "Ye can't  stliay h������re," asserted ltosvan. "Can't  50 anywhore else," said the man. For  x moment it looked as it thc polic?man  would have to spoil hi* record by making an arrest, but he was equal to the |  emergency. "G������t up." he said. 'ft'll i  help ye." The m-in zot on his foet. and j  th" policeman held him up.

The comic sido of the French naval  manoeuvres recently carried out on both  sides of the Mediterranean is well illustrated by the following disclosures, nosv  going thc rounds of tho Parisian press:  During M. Camille Velletan's cruise in  Corsican waters, a mimic engagement on  the linos of torpedo versus battleship  look place outside Calvi. The battleships Cassard, and Jaureguiberry, with  the aid of their powerful searchlights,  discovered most of-the torpedo flotilla,  but one of the little vessels by successful manoeuvring got within two yards  of the .Jaurcguiberrv and claimed a victory. Thc commander of the battleship,  however, flew into a temper and declared that the. Lorpc'.o-boat had committed a grave error in coining so near and  risking a collision, and refused to admit  that, according to the lnss'3 of warfare,'  he had been torpedoed. M. Camille  I'clletaii. on being informed of the incident, sided svith the commander of the  battleship, but the ollicer in charge of  the .toruedo-boat defended his tactics,  btnting that ho- had never lost control  of his vessel, and 'that he had .got within tsvo yards of the dauroauibcrry because he ss-ished to. Thc Minister,'however, got the last word, and dismissed  the unfortunate ollicer with the words:  "Jt was very imprudent all the same,  and tec that it does not occur again."  A favorite trick of the submarines was  to stresv the sea with bottles, svhich  only showed their mouths above water.  Seen from a ��������� distance tho bottles so  closely resembled the periscopes of the  submarines that the battleships frequently mistook them, and fired away  furioii'ly in an attempt to put them out  of action.  Don't, when you can all'ord to do better, let yonr horse go all winter svitii-  out any bedding, and let, him lie on the  manure and ground. Kven for look3  (and this is only a small point), don't  do it. Don't do without bedding for  horses so that you will have a load of  straw or cheap lmy lo sell. Many are  the peoplo who are doing this very  thing, thinking lhey nre gaining, but  they are only losing in the end.  Along this line, a word or tsvo concerning thc use of lhe currycomb and  brush may lie helpful, as this is another  point in svhich most farmers aro lucking, especially in this part of the country. Very few farmers ever reuli/.o  ���������svhat the currycomb and brush wero  made for. Most fanners when approached on the subject say, "1 have no  time to bother with them; tlie comb  and brush arc nil right for those men  who have nothing else to do, and svunt  their horses to look fancy; all the good  there is in it is that it just makes your  horses look a little better, and hosv can  us farmers alTord to spend time, on  that?" It is a great pity that these  farmers cannot understand that the  "looks" are only the smallest point.  The use of thc currycomb and brush  rightly and daily is sure to 'return good  results; it keeps the horse belter in  flesh nnd in looks, and he feels bettor,  and consequently he. can do more svork.  But let us suppose for a moment  that "looks" is all of it. Wouldn't it  be better to spend a fesv moments everyday and have your horse look well than  to'have him rough and dirty, and havo  some one to remark, "Tliere is a horso  that hns not seen a currycomb in six  months?" Afler you have made careful consideration, decide for yourself, Mr.  Fanner.  Next, I svunt to advise a little more  care in feeding and watering. Don't  ���������water a horse ns soon as you unhitch  him, if ho is very warm. Wait a fesv minutes, but water before feeding, and do  not water immediately after feeding. Try  to feed the right kind of feed. Timothy  with a little clover is the best kind of  hay; and don't feed corn and sell oats  if you have both. Oats are much nelter  for a horse, than corn. The trouble i3,  farmers are trying to raise loo much  corn; it seems tliey arc making this  their only point. Ar.d not until ss'c stop  feeding corn to horses and growing animals can wo have pcrfceL suece-Js; although when svo svunt lo fallen animals '.ve must hrfve corn or some other  fattening substance.  Another thing is to try to feed horses  for the best results.. Do not throw the  corn in the trough ..ic moment you^come  from the Held und nllosv tiie liorse lo  eat this, and then fill.up svith hay; feed  the hay- lirst and then the graiin Tlio  better way is lo mix the ground grain  wilh chopped hay. This gives a moro  equal distribution of the strengtu of  grain, although most farmers are not  iixed to do this.  And now, Mr. Farmer, hero is a point  for a great many of you: "Don't overwork- your horses in lhe. kast; don't  fry to do more than your neighbor  does; for which is the belter, to plough  a ten-acre field in tsvo days and injure  your ..cum to the amount of $50, or to  plough" on thc same field lour days?  Do well what you can, und do not try  to do any more."���������K. J. Waterstripe,  Clarence," Mo., in N. Y. Tribune.  Th������ Principal Witness.

The London Dnily Express recently received rrom a number of famous cricketers the bats which they had used in  various contests, and sold them for the  benefit of the Cricketers' Benevolent  Fund.

"What chances would u man have if  that building were to fall?" asked one  man of another, looking up at the Park  Row building (one of the largest in  New York City), the other day from the  postoflice  entrance.

And that lt should happen to-day, too,
When you fire 'tho sensation of llio

was really too bud of you to keep us
In suspense so long."
"Oh, please, Miss Duplossls!" bale
whispered Mrs. Gray, wilio sat near the
handsome middle-aged actress. "Please

pity you don't wear thorn!"
So tbo evil moment was tided over.
But never bad time dragged with'such
terrible slowness.for Winifred. She
talked cf one thing 'and thought of an-,
���other. Grdm fancies were in her mind.
She imagined herself trying to borrow
money from tiliese people���these, who
called themselves her friends, and wbo

breaking on my earn like a ceaseless

loft the theater?"
"Yes," said AVInirrod, In a losv, tired
voice. And then, kneeling by'her mother's side, she told her aJI the story���for
It svas best to keep back nothing nosv;
and even the strange Incident of t.Tie

It appeared not Improbable t'li.tit the
man on_the box-seat who had "looked
like a prize-flffSitee In lil* best clothe*,"
Winifred thought, had beeu in Lionel -
Macaire's pay, thoug-li precisely Jwihat

to see.' Nowadays oven aot'resses were
not -abduoted toy those who' loved' or"
hated, them, or-she and her mother,
talking it over together, migtit have
?uessed that the cabman waa to be

At all events, Lionel Macaire "was

' Thank Heaven," when ahe had smiled
' her last smile, and could fly back from
.t-��-i the door,'to which she had escorted a
' ",*''gossiping "old lady.
���J       "Mother, dear, what Is this dreadful

i .the stillness of the small figure reclln-

. -at her heart.   She left her question un-

y..many minutes passed before she svas

In his paper stealthily-reflecting upon
her character without actually saying
in so many words that Winifred Gray
vra3 the "young actress who had. attempted  an elopement."
The article made a denial Impossible,
lest the 'world should say, "If the cap
did not fit, why did the girl allow herself to.wear lt?" >'
Having struck so devastating a blow
tn twenty-four hours, lt was hardly
reasonable - to suppose that the hand
of re-venge would thereafter be held.
Winifred was no longer afraid; anger
dominated her too completely for fear
to" find room In ,mlnd ?or heart; but-
Mrs. Gray looked forward svith shivering apprehensions to her daughter'3
future. What if she should by and by
be left alone, without even the poor
protection of her mother's weak arms?.
"Somebody must be told this story,"
the elder wom.in_.sald'at last, "?oaie-��

"Can you" think of one among those
we call our friends?"
"You -don't realize, . dear, what a

Winifred said, , when . her mother remained "silent.,. ."I.'don't'believe there
are many svho really like him, but he
is .yery lavish with his ..money, and

������Within the next few daya Winifred
bad seen, or. tried to see, all the London managers. One or two were thinking of putting on new productions; but
none of them'had a part to offer her.
The girl, who had met several of these
Important personages ln the brief heyday of her success, and found thorn
most agreeable men, fancied that their
mariner had changed. She_ felt that
they looked ��� at her differently, and
there was a hollosv ring in' their regrets that she had not been able to
come to them a fesv weeks earlier. Almost with one accord everybody said
that..
After she had mot svith disappointment on all skies, Winifred troubled
herself by the fear that .'"he had seemed
to expect too much, nnd wished that
sho had clearly specified that she svas
ready to accept a small part���a very,
veiy suval! part. After the position
Bhe had held at tlie Duke of Clarence's

humiliation to appe-ir as a mere "svalk-
Ing lady"���a humiliation ss'bich only
an actor or actress cau thoroughly appreciate���but tiio poor girl svas ready
to do anything honest for the sake of '
the money needed by her "mother.
That need was not mentioned again
nosv by   tho   tsvo   women.    Mis.   Gray
would   havo   given   much   If   she .had
<ept  the   doctor's   vo.'dlct   to   herself,
that Winnie's anxieties need not be In-
sreased  for her sake;  but  It  ss-as  too
late for such a svlsh to be of avail, and
She. oouTa" only Hope, since Wlfinfe saTff
nothing more on the subject, that other  troubles  had, for    the    timo  being
crowded   that  one    out   of    the  girl's
mind. She would has-e thousht d1ff��r-

Winifred no longer went to bod to
sleep,.but to.'lie turning over.plan after
plan.   ���
If it had not been for the sum put
into the Irish paper���and lost���the
/crisis might have been tided over, but
as It was, there was scarcely any
available money, and a thousand- Kills
for it.. Rent, to be paid; servants and
household bills to be paid. And presently Dick would be at home again���a
delightful fellow whom everyone liked,
but boyishly selfish and destitute of
that indescribable quality which enables a .man to get on 1n the -ivorld. He
would be a hindrance, instead of a
help, pleasant as his society was; for
he" liked nice things, and -would be unable to earn them. He was only another to be provided for, and though he
would cheerfully try to find something
to do, Winifred was almost-as certain
as of her own existence that he would
fall, as he had failed dozens of times
before.
She.wrote to her old manager, with
Whom she had toured the provinces;
but-he had been vexed with her for
leaving, him, prophesying evil things,
and his letter in answer to her was a
mild "I told you so." His company
was full. There was no hope from him.
Then she tried' other provincial
managers���everyone .whose name she
knew. She visited thc agents again and
agam, and at last she was 'reduced to
answering advertisements ln the theatrical papers. But ln one or- two
cases she was too rate, and In others
the salary was not to exceed a guinea
a week, the actress to playi six leading
parts In a repertoire,- and' provide all
her own dresses.
Meanwhile, Dick came home looking
adorably handsome, and bemoaning his
own misfortunes, which. In his eyes',
-loomed larger than his sister's, and
were JrrUatlng'ly Increased by hers.*He
j wandered about, -seefilng sub-edltor-

had always been the "most charitable
soul on earth, speaking evil of none,-"'
defending sinners for the one spark' of
good .which-she supposed-still to be
lurking in tihelr hearts.
"If they did believe it they would
say they didn't.   They would "probably

notice me, I had maligned him out of

CHAPTER XII.
'    Winifred's Luck.
One morning Mrs. Gray, aching in
heart and soul at the thought of her
osvn helplessness and the -sight of
Winifred's face growing whiter every
day,-impulsively reproached Dick for
only trying to get the sort of work he
_in^ed^^q^sjtrI^Utg^for_wh a t^. he^m Igh L
reully obtain, no matter if It were Irk-
"some.   Tiie burden thrown upon Winnie  was   too great;   he must 6hou!der
his part of it.
. Without a word Dick took up the
smart silk hat he had been playing
with, and walked out of the room with
such a look on his beautifully chiseled
^face���svonderfully like , his handsome,
'Improvident father's��� that the.mother's
theart1 smote her". ''���
That afternoon,  while .Winifred" was
.out wearily lntervlesving the agents
who had always the same answer, a
noto , ln Dick's handwriting - was
brought to Mrs. Gray by a messenger.
��� "Dear Mother���1 have done what you
wished, and  shouldered  my  half   the
��� burden," It curtly ran. "As you truly
said, I ought not to mind whether It Is
��� Irksome ortnot, and as there seemed'to
be only one door open to me, I've gone
In by it. I suppose you won't 6corn my
father's profession for me, es-en though
I begin at the bottom. This means
that I've taken the King's shilling���or
would, if they'd bothered giving It me.
And I'm now Private Richard Gray.
First Battalion-Northamptonshire Regiment, but still your son, who���I hope
you'll think���has done the best he
could."
"P.S.���(Dick had not been able to resist this last reproachful little stab.),
"As I thought, it. would be better not
' to shame you and Win by calling on
you In the uniform'of a private soldier,-
I have enlisted In a regiment' quartered at a distance. This, to save you
pain; and so good-bye."
- A week later followed a letter imploring his mother, for Heaven's sake,
. to get money somehow, no matter
how, and buy him out. The life was awful. A gentleman couldn't stand it. It
"he weren't saved from it he would not
anssver for himself. He would be
tempted to commit suicide, for existence as a "ranker" was wo��se than.
death.
Supposing he did take his own life?
the mother and daughter asked eactt
other. He was rash enough to do anything, and his present mood seemed a
desperate one. Yet they could not help.
It was while 3Irs. Gray still held
Dick's passionate appeal In her hand,
just read, that the bell rang sharpiy.
"Winifred herself svent to the door, as
Jameson and the cook had both been
oald and sent away.    A district me.<v
senger-boy had come with a letter for r
her.    "I  was   to  wait  for an  answer,
miss," he said.
The letter was from FltzJohn Doulton, the agent whom Winifred had
called upon In vain on the flrst day of
her trouble. Since then she had seen
him not once, but several times; yet
he had never any hope to hold out.
Nosv he wrote ln haste, asking her to
come down'at once,-as there was a
chance which might suit her.
Winifred svas too young and.heal thy
a girl not to be snn:.;ulne. In the past
weeks of suspense and disappointment
she thought that she bad learnt not
to hope for anything until It should.be
a certainty, but nosv her heart'leaped
up .with a bound. She had lost a certain superficial radiance of her prctti-
ness lately througn sleepless nights
and'sveary days, svhich bad drained her
face of color, robbed her eyes of brightness, and her cheeks- of their childlike
contour;but as she ran In to Mrs. Gray
with the letter from iMr. Doulton all
her bloom and sparkle had come back.
"We'll wire poor old Dick to keep up
'his courage, and lhat sve'Il do our best
for him," she cried. "And for you,
dearest���oh, It shall be aU right tor
you soon���soon. You dJdn'.t.think I'd
forgotten. Jt does really seem as-if
tliere wero something ln this.. Mr.
Doulton wouldn't have troubled to send
up In suoh a hurry othersvlse. And
I've sent the boy back to say that I'll
it flJl'Wnv onro* armosr as soon m he
will."
The two kissed each other, with a
kiss that meant much; all they had
suffered together ln the past, and all
they dared to hope for In the future,
was ln the close touch of the fading
lips and the young, red mouth. Then
Winifred hurried off to her room to put
on her prettiest frock, that���thin and
slightly worn as it already was���she
might favorably Impress the manager,
who was presumably waiting to interview her.
For once, though others were assembled In the outer ofilce, she had not to
-wait. Mr. Doulton svas expecting .Miss
Gray, and had given orders that she
was to go to him ns soon as she arrived.
"Well, my dear, your chance has
come at last!" were his first svbrds, as
she was.shown ln.
.A few weeks ago he svould not have
ventured to call her "my dear," though
It was his habit, in common with a
certain type of stage-manager, to address young ladies applying to him for
engagements in such familiar terms.
But nosv Miss Winifred Gray was only
a girl among' other girls, "out of a
shop," and dying to get one; and today was net a day when she would
dare to resent, a smair familiarity,
which, after all, meant nothing to the
ears of a professional. fc
She only blushed, and tightened her
lips a little at the agent's greeting,
murmuring nervously that she had
come down as quickly as she could to
hear his news.
"Well, "so far as I can see, you're ln
for a 'soft snap,' as our, neighbors'
across the big pond say," went on
Doulton. "Leading part, good salary,
and immediate engagement.   The only
difficulty Is "
"Oh, there Is a difficulty?" echoed
Winifred, svhen he paused.
"That's for you to judge. You might
or might not think it one. ��� Anyihoss', at
this season of the year leading parts
with.,twenty guineas-a-week screw
don't grow on blackberry bushes, even
for the picking of such charming young
actresses as yourself." s   s "
"Twenty guineas a week!" exclaimed
the girl, with a wiry beating of the
blood- In her temples. "Are���are you
suje I can get the engagement?"
Doulton grinned' at lice Childlike betrayal of eagerness. "It's "for you .to
take or leav*", It appears/' he answered
her, VMarmaduke'Wantage,-.it1 man
very svell known all over England'some
years ago, is. going to _revive an old
play, .which was once very celeErated,
and,intends, to make a great production of it. In his opinion you are exactly what he wnnts for the principal
part, and as It's a big one he makes a
big offer."
"Wliat Is the play?" asked Winifred.
"The play's 'Mazeppa.'" As Fitz-
John Doulton spoke he-slyly watcher]
the girl's face from under lowered, lhis.
But it'only showed surprise. ���  '    "."
" 'Mazeppa,' "   she   repeated,   slosvly,
as if the name conveyed no particular
meaning  to  her  mind,   or  as    If   she
-hunled-vainly-for-an-^eluslve'recolloc-^"
tion. . .
"Yes. Have you ever rend Byron's
famous poem?" " ���"
"No," Winifred anssvered, " quite
ashamed of the necessity for a negative. "I've read vcryT little of Byron.
I've heard of 'Mazeppa,' of course, but
I don't even knosv "svhat It's about.
Wasn't it played a long time ago?"
"Long before your day, or even mine.
But Wantage thinks Its old succors can
be repeated, with a lot of scenic effect,
nnd a good company. The way of it
is a panto's fnMen through, and he's
got hold of the theater. lie's going to'

Jon't say that you'll like the part,
though a very handsome creature, Ado
Isaacs Menken, made'a tremendous hit
'in it forty or fifty years ago. You can

and get not only'your railway ticket
(you'll be expected to stop in Brighton,
for rehearsals, and not to travel lo and'

salary during the five .weeks of rehearsals."
"Why,   it's   unhenrd   of!"   exclaimed
���Winifred,   who   knesv  enough   o��   the
stage  to  understand  hosv  ouixoticaliy

A Defect of Reformers.
BE newspaper despatch from Topeka, Kansas. about Mrs.
Charles M. Sheldon's hired girl
has been very popular, and
acres of comment have appeared about it. The story is that
:he hired girl, who was new, had
,-ead In one of Mr. Sheldon's the-
ivorld-made-over stories that .it was
a. good plan for the servants of
i household to take their meals with
'.he rest of the family, *so she ex-
Dressed to Mrs. Sheldon her willingness
.o follosv that course, ibut Mrs. Shel-
lon dissented, and the girl left. This
s thought to .be a joke on Mr. Sheldon,
jut. remarks Nesv York "Life,"-really
t makes him appear in a good light as
i reformer who respects the rights' of
ithors, and does not try to compel even
lis Immediate family to share his sn-
:lal experiments. That Is tho way It Is
n tiio family of Tolstoi. Ho lives tho
deal life, anil goes barefoot, and cob-
ales shoes for recreation, but his wife
md most of his childien respect con-
I'onllonnl customs, and live a lite mo-
Jlflod, but not stunted by his ideals.
A great and common defect about or-
iinary rorormers Is that they are not
jontont to let their light so shine, but
insist that every one svhom they can
:ontrol shall emulate their good works.
Says the Women's Christian Temper-
nnee Union to tho army, "We think It's
wicked to drink beer, and you shan't
nave any." Says Mrs. Carrie Nation
:o .Apollo Belvldero, "It is an outrage
that you have no trousers on. Let mp
smash you!" Mr. Sheldon's way is
oetter. He goes Jn for precept, and,
naybe, example, but not (for constraint,
tf the Women's. Christian Temperance
Qnlon followed his example it might
still distribute tracts to thc army, but.
it would not legislate away the can-,

Belvldero, "Wear trouseis, like me."
Good Hearts and Bad Manners.
An exchange tells about a Judge
more noted Tor his bad manners than
his knowledge of law. He continual!}
Insults lawyers, litigants and witnesses���especially women���in the most
outrageous way, and spares no one except certain members of the bar whose
political Inlluence he fears. Recently
a young lasvyer, having more backbone than discretion, perhaps, svas bul-
Ued by His Honor beyond the limit of
endurance, and begun to talk back.
With the aid of a cool head and a pj-
llte but - sarcastic tongue the young
practitioner soon had the bencher apo.
plectlc and nigh t0 frenzy and yet
lacking ground for holding the lawyei
guilty of contempt.
wnen the case had been decided
against the young man an older member of the bar said:
"You did not take the judge in the
right way. He is cranky, but you
��� should have humored him. At heart
he is'a pretty good man."
"His heart may be good," eald the
young man, "but his manners are bad;
ind I'm tired of humoring people
whose hearts are so good that they
reel privileged to be bullies and.cur-
���nudeeons."

noble redman are Instructed In Anglo-
Saxon graces and civilization. One of
the teachers says:
It is very Interesting to study these

The Actor's Summer.

I !     Alan Dale, the well-known New
I.I I     York   dramatic   critic,   when   I,
A   ,   fretfully   and    enviously,    read
the reports of the actor's summer.   These reports are always
;orgeously   and ' artistically   arranged,
fhey are calculated to make any poor
jreadwlnner   repine.    At   the   close  of
lis "beason," after having led a gilded
>uttorfly life, with the plaudits of en-
bubiustlc millions ringing In his ears,

ul, ssveetly Inactive months, until the
mngry public calls him back again.
They arc all most anxious for us to

Why should the fairy gift of metamor-
jhosing a Dloomsbury furnished room
.nto a palatial hotel 'be exclusively
���lonflnod to the actor?
'��� Somo of the profession are much bet-

it is a positive injury to the health.
In the first place, the invisible dust     ���
which  continually  floats  through  tne'-

Injuring  thereby the delicate    membranes of the entire breathing appa-.

The nostrils act as a kind of sievo ������

passage, alone   to   'reach    the    lungi   .
through them, whareas ibe mouth will
admit not only sudden blasts of    icj-
air, sufficient alone sometimes to-produce    pneumonia,   but    foreign   sub-^

Lumber Goes Up.
Members of the British Columliiu
Lumber and Shingle Manufacturers
association, which comprises nearly
every mill on the coast, have decided
to advance the price'of shingles ten
cents per-thousand- on April 1st next.
The price of lumber was advanced at
the beginning of this month and a
still further advance has been made,
The reason given fcr the advance is
that logs have gone up some 40 per
cent., wages 25 per cent, while insurance rates on mills have been largely
increased.

Exit Denis Murphy.
The truth of the "philosophy, " It is
the unexpected that always happens,"
wis made manifest Sunday morning
when it became generally  known that
Mr. Denis Murphy, the elected member
for West Yale in the local legislature,
and   who   a    week     previously   had
accepted   the   portfo'.io o��   Provincial
Secretary and Minister of Education,
had on Friday evening last requested
Premier Prior to accept his resignation
urging  private and  personal reasons
for thc step.     There is no doubt but
Mr.'Murphy:s visit to his constituency
convinced   him   that  his former constituents   were   not  in   favor  of the
present   makeshift    government    at
Victoria.     The   withdrawal from the
government   of   Mr.    Murphy   places
Premier   Prior   and his follosvers in a
mi ions ���    position.       The      reckless
proposal of the Ho.i. Mr. Wells, Chief
Commissioner ol Lands and Works to
giv��  away   as  a  present  tlie Fraser
River  bridge   to   a railway company,
and the proposal of the government to
grant millions of acres of our land and
money to McKenzie and Mann for the
building   of  the   Canadian   Northern
Railway   through  British   Columbia,
**������ striking samples of the extravagant
and' unbusinesslike   methods   of   the
present government.   The warning has
gone forth and the end of the state of
thlrgs now existing at Victoria cannot
now   it   long  delayed.
Draws Line at Obedience.
Lust eveniug, says  the   Portage   la
Prairie Graphic, a young couple   arrived from the west, and the services
of a clergyman were requisitioned. The
wedding feast was   prepared   and ".all
was ready. The bride and bridegroom,
with their attendant friends, took their
places, and the solemn reading of th e
marriage covenent was begun.     All
went smoothly and happily  until   the
clergyman asked the bride.    "Do you
promise to   love,   honor ' and   obey?"
This   was  one   word tbo much.   The.
bride  hes'tated,   stammered   and refused to make the necessary promise.
Tlie   situation   was   an awkward one,
and there was a deadlock.      For over
half an hour   it  lasted, but  linally  it
was amicably arranged, and the ceremony proceeded without elision.
While the incident was probably
not a pleasant one to any of the party
concerned, it was eertainly not to the
discredit of the bride that she so con'
tended for a conscientious scruple.

Notice.
Murphy, and its probable  consequences,
���'I think," said Mr. Martin, that thp
government has received a fatal blow.
Tbe opinion of the Mainland, .it any
rHtt, Is reflected in Mr. Murphy's action. In the general election tsvo years
Hgo, Mr. Murphy beat his opponent ir.
Vital Yale over tsvo to one. It only
took him one day to find out that svith
a^binet position he svould be hopelessly defeated.
In my opinion Colonel Prior should
not put.himself in the position of being
Charged with hanging on to oflice tor
tn�� purpose of getting the salary. A
government hae no light to viny in
power a day unless it is sAti**Hed that
it represents the people.
I do not think that even with Mr.
Murphy they could have commanded n
majority of the House. In fact I am
certain they could not. But even if
lhey could manage to pull along with
a majority of one or two, it would be
��� greaLmistHke for them to attempt
it.
Ther* can be no question whatever
but what the people of the Province
of all Bhades of politics are thoroughly
disgusted with the House^ that was
elected in 1S00, and the only remedy is
a general election. Any politician
who runs counter to the general puhlic
feeling and trie* to prevent an election
will, I am certain, suffer very much in
pnblic opinion.
I am afraid Mr. Mclnnes has done
himself a great deal of harm by going
into the Prior Government. I am
aorry he took that course. He did so
very touch against my wishes."

Unfortunately for the Province, we  havo had before to report n gross  breach of honesty in public-matters by  our Liberal representatives. Again  the unwelcome -task iu ours, says the  Kamloops Standard.  Last spring an appropriation of  $2,000 was made for the purpose of  clearing the Salmon River, at Salmon  Ann, and Mr. Donald Sinclair, an  excellent man for the post, wus placed  in charge. He engaged whom he  thought were the best men in the  public interest, irrespective of religion  or politics, and did his work to the  satisfaction of the depaitment.  Again, in the full another appropriation wus made of $2,500, and on  September 10th a letter was sent to  Mr. Sinclair as follows :  Dept. of Public Work, Canada.  Resident Engineer's Office,'  New Westminster, B.C.,  10th September, 190*2.  Sir,���������I am in receipt of yours of lath  inst. In reply I may state tbat there  is a sum of $2,500 in the estimates this  year for further improvement of the  Salmon River. You are liberty.there-  fore, to organize and begin work  whenever the stage of water is most  favorable, letting me know, and  bearing in mind that the amount of  the appropriation must not, under anv  circumstances, be exceeded.

Dear Sir,���������I am in receipt of a communication' from G. A.

In reference  to this I might state what the Executive decided at the last meeting. It  was decided that you should furnish a  Hist of names now employed, and that  of those present employed vou should  immediately dismiss James - Evans,  Herman Krebs, Daniel Stewart. You  will also send your team home and  give team work for the present to C.  D. Harris.  -  I have been requested on behalf of  the Department to O.

'Mi's'Uncle Jerry.   1  ���������As the junior partner of the old-  established 'firm of solicitors, Gale,  Tempest & Hopkinson, of Lincoln's  Inn Fields. I was brought up in closest  touch with the office staff.  One old clerk, who had started as  office boy to the firm named, was  called _S. Nevil. but his baptismal patronymic was generally, shortened by  his confreres into Snivel, a name  ���������Which described his . temperament, to  a fine point How he had been kept  on so long was a mystery to many, but  At: was mainly through ray. instrumon-  ialty. The fact, is that Nevil fell ill  ���������Kith influenza, and.during his,absence  "ais daughter called for some- vvagc-3  due him. I saw and was greatly ini-  -pr.essed by her. Her manners were  those of a woman of gentle birth and  breeding, but her face,which was more  than beautiful, had those'lines of' patient suffering which plainly .told her  "Story; There was no need to ask her  it, for it .was: plainly: enough written.  I really guessed -that by- domestic  tyranny;, he found an outlet for his  petty nature which his own sex would  cot allow 'him':, to exercise on them. "  After seeing his daughter I resolved  that-iSevil's place in our office was to  be permanent so long as I could use  my influence in his behalf, and at  Christmas I���������but that is outside th������  story. _    .  %"'  ��������� One morning as Nevil came into my  ���������jffic'-' with some letters tor signature  1 was struck with his woful appear-  ' ance,'and. as I have foreshadowed my  interest in his faD:;ly affairs, it.'was  natural that I should ask what Was  the matter with h'.ni.  "A-dreadful and shameful 'oaks has  been played on me, Mr. 'Upklason, sir."  he said. Nevilwas always erratic  -with his li's when "put out."  "Sit down, my man. and toll me all  ubout it," I said, for. much as I disliked the num. I could not help feeling  6orrj'"for him, so 'distressed did ho  eeern.  'Tou know." In continued, "that 1  fcavo always looked forward to' Uncle  ���������'. Jerry leaving some of his wealth to  us when the end came."  "Well, Nevil," I interrupted, "hns  be died?"  "No. elr:   wo.-'-e  than  that.      lam  afraid I would not be so cut up about  that, but he has played a dirty trick  oo me and mine that I am as much  : disgusted as disappointed."  As I saw he was bursting to tell me  his sorrow I told him to proceed with  the story of his wrongs.  "You must know that Uncle .Terry  last Christmas, as was his usual custom, Invited all his poor relations t������  dine -"ith him.  "The night parsed smoothly, except-  . ine that two cousins got excited in a  political argument. These evenings  wound up with a speech from our hoM.  and then, after singing 'Auld Lang  Syne.' we would separate. The speech  last Christmas was a memorahle one.  and I remember each word burnt itself  Into my memory as it fell from Uucl������  Jerry's lips.  " "My dear relatives,' he commenced,  "you will be .sorry to '������aru.as I am to  announce It, that this gathering, which  it has been my pleasure as well as  my duty to hold at this soaaou of good-  3 .will toward all men, is to be the last.  " "Yes, the last. I grieve to repeat.  You are all. I think, aware of the sudden collapse of the company which  promised to be one of the greatest and  most successful undertakings of modern time. I will be brief, as the subject is to me a painful one.

"The assembled relations gasped'  with astonishment at the first few,  sentences, but before Uncle .Terry concluded his speech, and he was ��������� in no  hurry, I assure you lhey had recovered themselves suflieietly to applaud mj  the right places and to utter platitudes  at the end.  "As to myself," continued Nevil, "I"  was as mad as any of them, but as inyl  daughter and I were walking along  our street I was suddenly struck with'  the notion that it might bo a 'plant.'-  You see, sir, I am a great reader, and;  in novels and those short stories whicli  one reads;in the evening papers rich  old' uncles have a habit of springing  these surprises on thoir poor relations  at such festive gatherings in order to'  test the genuineness cf their pro-1  fesscd affection."  "Well, sir, I stopped and danced on  te pavement until my daughter caught  hold of my arm and said: /You'll have  " a crowd 'round lis in a minute," father.)  "Next morning 1 called to see Bab.

I said to myself: "That Is becauso  everything in the city has to bo    bought and living is high."    But  I began to study the thing, arid I  found out that even a country boy  fodl-s his parents a good deal.  "When you count what a boy eats  and what he wears, and the school  books he has to have, and the doctor's  bills that have to be paid when ho  gets the measles or the scarlet fever,  he will cost his folks at home at least  one hundred dollars a year.

' ��������� The old blackened weather beaten  church among the pines stood .on tho  summit of the hill. It was during the  semi-annual revival. ' The preacher had  been at the busincus of calling sinners  to repentance for many a year and wau  acquainted with all the little art:s  known to" the profession In catchin-j  them both ways, going a'nd' coming,  "lint his plan for this spring was th.i  greatest he had ever practiced and wa/  the talk ot the neighborhood.  For nights he had workeif it, with tie  aid of a very young member of thh  church, the son ot one uf his deacons  and a very sturdy, relw-blo young fellow. To mystify and rouse his bearers to a frenzy of religious emotion; he  had thought of tie novel plan of having the Holy Ghost descend in the fore;  ol a white,dove every night.  His co-workers manipulated the Holy  Ohost, which was a white,pigeon, from  the old loft of the church. Before dai'ic  John, with thc Holy Ghost for company, crept up in the loft and waited  patiently for the congregation to assemble. At a certain time in tlie sermon, John let Ry the white, pigeon, and  the preacher dwelt, dramatically upon  llie Holy Ghost du-cer.dlng upon the  people. That always moved his hearer-)  to violent demonstrations and brought  many to the foot of the cross.

He came to a place where two roada  crossed, and paused undecided. Ho  glanced about in the gloom and found1  that he was near a house. "I'll ask  there," he said, and walking up to  the door knocked boldly.  '������������������:��������� Hardly had _his knuckles left the  panel, when the door burst open and  ti young person in a dark sit.rt aud  light'waist.'hurled1, herself, upon him.  The force of the blow caused him to  stagger backward. Involuntarily he  clasped her close in,her arms while he  regained his equilibrium, then he released her.  "Oh, oh, oh!" sho gasped. "I  thought It was a May-basket." Then,  as suddenly as she had ccme, sho  darted into; the house and the door  .went to with a bang behind her. ,  '���������; The man picked up his bicycle from  the ground where ho had laid it and  went back to the corners. Here ho  stood meditating. He looked in all  four directions, .then glanced' at : tho  house and shook his head. "I guess  I'll take my chances on the road," ho  said, ; and started down the southern  one.  As he went along, .the clinking,, of  fhe chain as it passed over the sprocket teeth sounding plainly in the stillness, he cogitated thus:  "I have just made a most interesting discovery. How by accident we  sometimes stumble on these scientific  facts. Now, if I had not punctured  my tire just as dark was coming on,  and then lost my way, I never should  have known that during the month of  May the houses in country places are  so many catapulas. You have merely  to knock on the door and a beautiful  young lady will be shot into your  arms, instead of into a net, as they  do  it at the circus."  Mrs. Jameson's was considered a  very pleasant place to board, and vacancies were awaited-for eagerly by  those who knew of the quiet ' and  homelikeness. of ��������� her peaceful dwelling. She never would have more  ���������than four boarders at a time,- so it  did not seem like a regular boarding  h.0USe.      .    ' "H -j, v-!- :���������������������������.-:    ������������������;--���������  - "I can't' take care of more than  that number," she often said. "If I  had more I'd be obliged to keep a  girl and that won't do. I get along  very well with what help Jamie can  give me about dishes and on wash  days."  This habit of calling her husband  "Jamie" led to the boarders calling  her "Mrs.  Jamie."       .  ���������It was; a day, in September, and the  newest boarder sat looking across  Mrs. Jamie's table at the oldest  boarder. Shy" was the new school  teacher���������her predecessor in both  school and boarding house had been  married the previous summer���������and  he was a young bachelor whose work  was in a down town law office. She  -thought���������that-he--haci_a-goodiface,-and  he thought there was something  strangely familiar about her voice,  though at the same time he was sure  that he had never heard thosi*  wnee  before.  As the weeks and months wentby,  a friendly liking grew between these  two. Each felt free to call on the  other for any littio help that was  needed, and,many and long were tho  discussions  indulged   in   by   them.  During    the   short  Christmas   and  epring   vacations   the'  oldest boarder  missed  the  newest  one.    and    when  . r,i hcol dayb began again there was a  1 noticeable  rise in  his' spirits.  1     One evening in May these two nnd  .'.Irs.

Say-ward sprang  to his feet.and rushed from the room,  Miss Stewart following alter.  It" was a very dark night and the  children , who :had hung the basket  really did not wish l.o be caught, so  after a vain search and a fruitless  chase the two came back unsuccessful.  "What ix beautiful basket!" cried  Miss Stewart, and Mrs, Jam Irs brought  a vase of water for the flowers and a  -jlns-' dish for iho fruit and candies.  Quiet was at length restored, and  Mr. Sayward returned to his: paper,  Mrs. Jamie to her patchwork and'Miss  Stewart to her restful a'titude. Slid"  denly she laughed softly.  "I was thinking of something that  happened several years ar;o," she explained, as Mrs. Jamie looked at her  Inquiringly. "It wau when I was in  my teens and before 1 went to Normal  school. I "sed to have ever so many  May bankets and 1 took t'reat pride in  :i-ver letting any ono who hung them  :<e;ipr witho.it g.'Ultir* caught.

Of course it was vory sudden, but  Alice was one who knew her own  mind, so after a moment's reflection  she told him that she supposed sho  could.

In the year ending  March 31, 1901, the expenditures  amounted to $090,000,000. -Meantime tho  population has remained almost stationary, and the per'capita cost of government for tho Hist liscal year  ���������amounted to $1S. The increase ln cost  Is due largely to the ruinous French  policy of refunding debts and annual  .deficits andYto the cost 'of'.'maintaining  . unproductive colonies.  In Tonkin; Tndo-China, there is a timber-mine in good working order. In a  sand formation, 'at a depth of from  Eourteen, to twenty feet, a deposit of  trunks of trees has been found," arid  from this deposit the people -dig timber. It Is procured in-good condltion,  ���������ind is used for making oofllns and  troughs and for carving. The trunks  are many of them three feet In diameter and forty-live feet long, being apparently the remains of fir-trees which  were buried thousands-of years ago by  an earthquake. There is an extensive  forest in this sand formation; and the  timber, although It has tieen burled so  long, is not In the form of coal. This  somewhat strange fact is accounted  for by the peculiarly resinous character of the wood and the sandiness of  the soil. Access to the mi������es is obtained by gangways.

A Form of Herc-Worsblp.
Hero-worship ol ,i certain variety is no doubt responsible for the
fact that the prize-fight holds its
place in popular iuvor, despite all the
teasons why a civilized and refined people should object to it. Sonic popular
sports touch human nature so near to
Its innermost impulses that laws"cannot
prevail against them���and the combat of
man to man with fists, the trial of
strenglli, skill, and endurance between
two splendid specimens of the physical
animal, appears to be one of these with
the people of our race. In the victor in
such a ti inl the people whose tastes incline that way simply see a hero; and
this perception, that has enduicd in the
popular mind of our race or other races
for several thousand yeais, will not out
because of something printed on paper
and called a law. Law has its limit in
the modification of thc lives and sports
oi the-people; and if pri/o-iighting is
ever looked upon by the people with
disapproval it will not be because of
statutory fulminations against it, but
because there has come over the nature"
of thc people, themselves some profound
change. Ought wo really to desire such
n. change! asks an exchange. While it
might be pleasant enough to know that
all our countrymen nre so fni refined as"
to considor thia combat a disngieeablc
and brutal spectacle, would not^ that
state of mind imply other changes In the
nature of tho people (���..together Undesirable in a nation that has probably

BHss Carman's View of the Function of the Poet.
"What do you uiideistaiid by n poet?
What is his office and bu->ine->3 in life?
What part does lie pl.iy in the woild?"
Mr. BIKs Caiman propounds these questions in the liiei.iiy supplement of the
Chicago '"'liil'iino," nnd endeavois to answer them,   Uo wnles:
'���Fiist, and s*'eal..ng most roughly, the
poet Ja a peisou wlio ha", something impoilant lo say about life, and has the
apcci.il gift ot sajingit supremely well.
He musi; be one (I think we will all ad-
mil) who has thought profoundly about
exialence. And yet that i3 not enough
lo ni. !ce him u. poet, for that is thc accomplishment of a philosopher or a scientist. He must also feel deeply and
strongly about life. And yet that is not
enough lo make him a poet, either, for
many of us feci much more deeply and
sincerely than w*e can say. Xo, he must
"ot only be able to speak fiom n great
fund of thought and knowledge nnd fiom
a great fund of sympathy and emotion;
he must be able to speak witli the wonderful power of cluum ��-. woll.
"Tho poet must delight om senses
with thp inevitable hen uly of hia cadences
his diction, hia rhj'lhiiis���with what
is oflcn called Iceluiiquc; he must enlist our symjmiiiy through his own
strong and generous emotional nature;
ho must convince our minds by his own
reasonableness. Ile .ippeuls to om sense
of bcaulv. but Hot to that scii-,e alone;
he appeals to our sense of goodness, but
not to that sense alone; lie appeals lo
our sense of truth, hut not to lhat sense
alone. His appeal is lo all.thice, and
to all three equally.".
Fuithcrmoie, the poet "ought to be
and must be a nomul man���not an aveiage man, but a noimnl man, with .ill the
best poweis and capacities of manhood
in him." lie must be "'capable of thought,
capable of passion, capable of manual
labor." He must have "ahaiod our common life iu the world." Says Mr. Carman:
"How can I talk to you with any hope
o[ a common undoiat.niding, when I only
know the facts at second-hand, while J ou
have actually cxpeiipneed them, and
when I have no- caring about them one
way or the other, while lo yoa they aie
ma tiers of life and death? The idea that
. a poet can c\er be a mere bjstar.dur, an
onlooker al life, seems to me too p.*.pi-
bly impossible lo need lofut.ilinn. Aim

' Iirtlic last i"esort, continues the writer,
xho whole rjuestion of poetic feeling and
of ai't rests on social conditions:
'"The flue aits aie neaily lel.itcd to
the industii.il aits. And at present we
can have no widospiead national i'ltcioat
in the fine aits, bec.ni*1>;.we have no national iiidusliiil arts.' Tlie mdusuial
aits oi a people, dike the fine arts,, can
only be caiued on hy 'men .who tire free
and honest -and intelligent, and thcre-
foie happy. Tor it is quite true, as Wil*
'liiim'Monis said, that art' is the expression of man's pleastuo in his work. Hut
the men who engage in our industiics today cannot he happy. For onr industrial
aits���or, rathoi, our industries and
manufactures whieh ought- to .be industrial arts���arc cairicd on by two classes
'of people", the woikmon. and the capitalists. Now, all workmen, under modern
industrial conditions, are thc slaves of
their employers; while capitalists, however generous their impulses, nre of necessity partakers of dishonest gain."
But while it is true that ait and poe
try can only conic lo their full development under social conditions that en-
comage" their production, it is also tine
that great ait has'been ciealeil even
undei the most hostile environment. Ai t,
declines Mr."Caiman, "is not, an idle
amusement;.it is a natuial phenomenon,
as Significant as war. as bcaiilif*il a^ihe

Theory of an Old Angler.
Nine out of ten iislieimen believe
that when trout will not *bilo thoy are
already goige'd with food; hut this is not
the case.' liven dining tlio otf days of
thc trout, one will be caught now and
then, but always on bait, and if the angler could see ilie fish when it takes the
bait he would notice that it does it in a
veiy poifunctory manner. The tiout
does not moi o out of its way in doing
it, but mechanically takes tlio hail m
much after tlie fashion of the sucker.
Then, if the liout fishciman who
makes a catch at such a timo will open
thc tiout and examine its stomach ho
will be suiprised to lind that instead ol
the fish being goiged with food, and
hence indiflcicnt to more, its stomach
has not a trace of food in it.
This will be found to be the case invariably, and disposes of the belief'that
when trout refuse to bite it i3 because
they arc already full of food. It would
naturally bo supposed that tho best time
to catch trout would be when they are
hungry, but it will he found that when
they nre rising best to the fly, or are
taking bail with tho most avidity, there
is plenty of food in their stomachs, frequently so much, in fact, that it would
seem impossible that any more could be
taken in.
Why this should be no one can tell. It
is a fact, nevertheless, whicli any fisherman may easily verify by investigation.

that linen and cotton are poor conductors of heat. Talte a globe of copper

*y walks out In midstream and takes a
drink. The little ones by this timd
are cavorting like two kittens, splashing the water and making a great deal
of noise. Momma is afraid evidently,
there is too much noise, for she backs
out of the water, and tbe little ones
obey her instructions and reluctantly
follow.
Fortunately there is quite a clearing along the left bank, and slowly
and stealthily, backing about ten feet
up the hill, I gain a position where I
can plainly see mamma and the ba��
bies without being seen or heard.
The old lady is quietly feeding, nipping the tenTJer branches with much*
relish. The little ones thTnk it is timo
for their breakfatt, and to watch
them as they pull at their eourco oC
nourishment reminds me or a full-
���blooded Jersey cow with a calf. I
wonder, If long years ago, there ���was
any relationship existing between tho
two?
The doe is a big female. She weighs
��00 pounds. She wears her spring
and summer garment���her red petticoat. The duties of maternity evidently ^gree wilh her, for sbe Is sleelt
and fat. Now- marraia compels tlio
toddlers to stop eating, and even gives
the largest of tne fawns a slight tap
on the head to prevent his rtisbes for
moro sustenance. This furry tliing_
promises to be a. buck, for lie is determined to get what he wants, but
his mother is too quick for him. Sho
lears from one side to tbe,other with,
the agility that only a deer poss.ec.ses,
and now bolh little ones.euUr'iig into the spirit cf the play, run and jump
in imitation of their mother. Now
the dame runs twenty rods up the hill
and the little ones follow. New they
all come back pell mell. No sooner
have the litle ones reached the water's edge than they repeat llie performance again and again.
How proud mamma looks! . Wero
there ever two such lovely fawns?
Not to her way of thinking. After
having run about ten times, they evidently- tire and come up to partake
ot the maternal font. I3ut ii.-stmct
teaches thai it is not good to eat
when so heated from violent exercise,
so the mother leads them to water,
lets them drink, and .then again
tempts them to repeat their, performance of running and ' romping. It
strikes me the mother h3s an object
in *?iew. ��� Can it be to teach her
young to gain strength and -surefooi.-
edness?- I think so. Now the two
urchins come tumbling down the hillside with an impetuosity that is undeniable. The smaller one of the two
is enabled to stop just at the water's
edge, but" the baby buck is coming so
quick and he has so little control of
himself, he tumbles from the embankment and fails with a resounding
pplash Into the water, and then begins to bleat exactly like a calf, a;*
much as to say: Mamma, mamma,
sister pushed mo in the water. Come
help me, I am hurt."
And now I make my mistake. . Tho
entire affair is so .udicrous, I laugh,
and that very loud, and then you
should see th edoe. One quick look
in my direction, one. quicker jump into
obscurity, a call for her offirpring, and
that settles it.
