The d.-.k bungalow where she intended to spend the night was but a mill  away, and sinie her husband had been  ���������detained on hi.* inspection tour, no one  was waiting for hor there.  A note telling hor of tho unexpected  delay had reached her that morning, advising her.to postpone her jungle trip  until thc following day; but Mrs. Addi-  ������on had made her arrangements for departure, nnd a great weariness of her  own whitewashed hcraso had seized her.  Her home letters had been disquieting  lately: the boy aft Woolwich had developed an unexpected delicacy of tho  lungs, and her youngest son, with a boy's  .-" indifference to the value: of time, was  ".. playing at athletics instead of working  for Sandhurst. There was nothing in  -. the small dull station, nothing in the  monotonous evenings passed so slowly in  the dreary precincts of tha "Amusement  Club," to" amuse or distract an anxious  mind, nnd ten days in camp, even with  a. husband who "was habitually overworked ami frequently worried; appeared  to her as a change that might bring rest  and healing.  A familiar figure, running as swiftly  as clumsy .shoes would allow, emerged ut  a turn of the rond; Guj Raj'Singh, one  of Mr. Addison's chaprassies and messengers, whose name being translated  meant "Elephant King Lion."  "Stop, mem saliib," he panted, "there  Is a mad sr.hib in the bungalow who is  Bhooting  with  a  gun,  and  your  honor  must wait till he is caught."

"Send these people  away at once. Tell them to go quietly  to their housrs.

The man  was  abso-  the raco feel-  cautions against being overheard, and  ���������whispered, ^C have been in lie**, for eges  and ages. This Is hell���������didn't you  know?"  Sho took his hot dirty hand and laid  hor lingers on the wrist. "I am afraid  you have fever," she said; "sit down  'hero with your back to tho light and tell  me ihow you feel���������you look as if yoti had  been sleeping badly."  His rido was still leaning against the  wall.   Why was Guj Raj so slow?  "I can't remember whuu I slept last,"  he said, eimply.  The rille was gone now,and she spoke  moro   cheerfully.    "You   must   let   my  husband  prescribe  for  you   to-morrow;  he is not a doctor, but he is nearly as'  good as ono."  "Is he of good family? I am of very  'ancient birth and high lineage; we cau  trace descent in a diroct unbroken lino  from Guy, Karl of Warwick. You havo  heard, of course, of tho Dun Oovr, aud  .the Dun-now Flitch?"  Mrs. Addison assented enthusiastically, and he went on:  "I could draw you up a genealogical  tree in a moniout, if I hod pen and paper, that would mako tho whole intaittor  clear to you."  "Fleaso do. I shall be deeply arter-  ested."  The contents of a. portnianteau sce-ncd  to have been emptied out on the table;  he dug like a terrier among the confusion till ho found a writing-cose.  "This will bo a truly beautiful family tree," he said.  "I am so glad," said Mrs. Addison,  locking his. gun-case and pocketing I'he  key. She hummed a waltz tune to cover  the sound of hor movernonts as sho rummaged for his razors in an open bag.  There were seven, of them in a neat  case. What other weapons was ho likely to possess, she wondered, glancing at  the absorbed figure. Thoro was bound  to be a revolver somewhere; she cautiously moved a rug and pillow that  were flung slantwise on the baro bedstead, and found what she sought.  "What are you doing?" ho asked suddenly and roughly.  "Only tidying the room a little," she  answered, tossing an end of tho blankot  over the revolver. "You don't liko il  as untidy as this, I'm sure."  "No, 1 hato it; but theso devils aro  not to come in and pry aboul, mind  that." -"  "Of course they sha'n't. I'll do it myself."  "Let me help you," he suid, an instinct of politeness coining pathetically  to the surface of his seething mind.  ,"01i, no; you must go on with the  tree. 1 shii'n't uiidersUind ubout your  family else."  He bent obediently over the table,  and, hiding the revolver with the razors  under the fold of hor skirt, sheweut out  quickly to lock up the dangers in her  own box. Coming back, she slolo away  a heavy stick, and now there only remained the large hunting-knife that lay  on the table near his hand.  "How is the tree getting on?" she  asked, looking over his shoulder at a  piece of paper that displayed pitiful  scrawling.-* in red and blue pencil, like  the scribblings of a little ohild.  "IL won't come right; my head hurts  so all over the top."'  9Iio passed a cool hand over his burning brow and eyes, and al the same moment caught up the hunting-kiiifo and  hid it behind her.  "Yes, your forehead is dreadfully hot.  , Aren't you thirsty?"  "Xo; only in thc top of my head."  "I'll   tell   bheui   to get  us  some  tea,"  she said.  This was her excuse for hiding the  knife, and when she returned her feeling  of relief was so great that sho was almost light-hearted. She had learnt from  tlie gun-case that his mime was Sydney  Warwick, and that he belonged to an  English regiment, but the problem of  his presence there, and Uio mystery of  his madness, were still unsolved by her.  Had the insanity been caused by sunstroke, or excesses, or anxiety, or was it  a sheer hereditary -curse?, She had no  means of judging.  After tea he talked a grea*t deal, always in a high, hard voice, and it was  difficult foT her to tell in his fluent  rambling sentences whero sanity ceased  and madness began. He was very boastful and argumentative, and a little disposed to be quarrelsome if she did not  instantly' agree with 'his wildest dfcate-  ments. It, seemed to .her that he talked  us a fever patient thinks, with no power  to fix the mind upon one subject, and  \yith no possible connection of ideas between the topics. Two or three times  he-told -!ier-stories-of_tli'i_J-ind_thii.t^.no !  gentleman should tell to a lady; scum  that iloated on the whit-ling torrent of  liis poor mind, and she, understanding,  Emiled patiently.  It was useless to question him. She  made one very ordinary enquiry as to his  recent movements, and he glared angrily  at her, growling, " I warn you not to go  too farf"   A moment later he unearthed  Aike it, and it will make you sleep well  ill night."  "l'm not going to 3wallo\v any of your  poison 1'! he shouted.  "Sydney, you forget yourself; that is  not tho way to speak tome."  "I didn't mean to," ho stammered;  "but you can sec for yourself the danger I am in. I dare not go to sleep;  these black brutes will come aud kill mo  if I do."  "When did you first begin to think  that  of  them?"  "I don't know. Of course they aro  bound to kill mo in the end���������there aro  so many of them; but I wont let my  life go tflicap.    Where's my rifle?"  "I took it away to clean it���������you shall  have it afler dinner, if you like. T-loasc  sit down, Sydney; it makes mo nervous  to 6co you .pacing up and down tfuo  room,"  "I'm a restless sort of chap, I know,"  he suid, meekly; "the mum is always  telling mo so."  "Try and keep still for ton minutes,  then,"/said .Mrs. Addison, laughing, as  sho won t into tho verandah to givo orders for tho despatch of tho note. Tho  servants , wero busy preparing dinner,  and the crowd had dispersed long ago, in  a calm beliof that lhc mom sahib would  prevent the mad sahvb from doing any  norm.  Guj Raj shuffled up to her, a light of  unwonted intolligonco on his honest stupid face, and a piece of rope in his hand.  "Sine* the saSiib haa neither guns nor  knives now," ho said oagorly, "four men  by entering quickly oould tie ��������� up his  hands and foot without hurt."  "Go away, and try not to be a fool,"  said Mrs. Addison. "Tlie saihi'b will oat  dinner with me," she wont on, turning  to 'her table servant, "aud 'the medicino  in. this paper, which looks liko salt, must  be put into the soup that you givo to  me���������lo me, you understand. If you ipr-  get to do tfhis tlie sahib will certainly  kill me, and then will probably kill some  of you; *o be careful not to forget.  Bring dinner quickly."  ��������� The tabic was laid in the third room  of the bungalow, and made pretty witli  roses brought from Mrs. Addison's own  garden in f'ultonpore���������a detail arranged  by t.i������ kiiitmatghar as a matter of  course. .-  "Now remember, Sydney," said. Mrs.  Addison, as she led him in,"you mustn't  frighten my servants, t'hey are very good  men."  Ho looked suspiciously at his soup  without tasting it.  "This isn't tho same as yours," he  said.  "Oh, yes, it is," said Mary Addison,  making sure with thc bowl of a spoon  thaH the sulphonal was completely melted; "but we'll change plates if you like;  I do riot wind art all."  The transfer was made to his evident  relief, and he drank tlie soup. During  Uie'whole dinner, the six courses insisted  on by the kliansamah us essential to tho  dignity of thc ruling race, thia exchange  of plates was solemnly gone through.  "The poison Uhoy have prepared for me  i3  not   likely   to   injure   you,"   he   said  each time, in a kind of pitiful apology.  After  dinner he  grew  at  flrst  noisy  and then deeply depressed���������tlie effect of  lhe sulphonal, she supposed, for the dose  she hud given him had been a strong one.  "1 wish 1 durcd go to sleep," he said.  "Why not? I'll wulc-li and seo that no  one coines near you.    I'm a very good  nurse, and think nothing of sitting up  all night," sho answered", iu a very matter-of-fact voice.  She persuaded Wm at last, after much  argument, to lie down; and, wrapping  liereolf in a fur cloak, sat near him till  his babbling voice ceased .and his regular breathing told of sleep. The night  ���������wu6 cold, with the coldness of Northern  Indian winter; but she",.had-bean: afraid  to bave a flre lighted, lest tihe sight of it  should suggest to Wa madness a new  and'horrible form of destruction.: A lantern burning in a corner dimly lighted  his flushed face,, whioh 'had a touching air  of youth and helplessness. At flrst he  6lept uneasily, *>nd she unlaced and took  off his heavy boots, tnd loosened his  coot at the throat, with gentle motherly fingers. He looked up, indistinctly  murmuring a sentence that ended in a  coarse word; but she whiapered "Hush!  Sydney, don't talk;" and he nestled  down "on his pillow like a tired child,  saying, "I'm so slcsp**/'  Mrs. Addison did not care to read, and  the young face on thc pillow, seeming in  that dim light far younger than it really  warf, carried her -thoughts back to rhe  days when her sons had been children  within the reach of hor love: before the  inevitable separation of Indian life had  done its cruel work. Her babies���������her  iittte_rJb1r-F=weTe--1-cTtrir^nci-r:7'  to be coaxed and comfortod. Slowly,  vei*j* slowly, his dark mood changed, ho  forgot the horror of his dream, was interested in tho hot milk given him to  drink, and mado drowsy by her steady  flow of talk in a gentle monotonous  voice.  "I like to hear your voice, it keeps  dreadful things at bay," he said, and as  she sat hear 'him dipping 'handkerchiefs  in water to cool his hot forehead, alio  found herself singing the hymn that had  been her children's lullaby, and repeating  ngain nnd again what littlo Dick called  "tlie comfy verse:"  When in the night I sleepless lio,  My soul with 'heavenly thoughts supply:  Lot no ill dreams disturb my rest-  No powers of darkness, mo molest.  How long the dawn wns in coming;  caoli time that -the looked towards tin*  door she saw t'h* samo hopeless darkness. She could have prayed at last for  it gleam of the sunrise that should usher  in a better day. Surely he was sleeping  moro peacefully, and his forehead seemed  cooler.

Presently tliere was a sound of arrival outside, and un Kngli.-vh voice asking  for Uie mem sahib, and she huTricd out  to meot the dootor.  "Are you all right, Mrs. Addison?  How have yuu managed?" he asked  quickly. "You must liave had an awful  night. I only got your letter at dawn,  und came at once. Winat have yo*u done  with him/where is he? That was the  letter of an absoluto madman."  "He ia asleep still," said Mary Addison quietly, "he has slept a great p.iTt  of the niglit," and she briefly describeil  what had happened. Her face looked  very gray and small in the dawn light.  "Have some chola hazori and then lie  down and get a sleep," said the kind  ���������littlo man, whose full title was Surgeon-  Lieutenant-Colonel, but who refused to  answer to anything longer or more  stately than "Doctor.".';.' ''You've done  wonders, and I'll look after liim now.  I've got a couple of Tommies coming in  case he needs a guard, as he hates natives, but I hope they won't be wanted."  "Let mo come and tell him who you  are��������� you might startle him."  "Drink your tea and lie down, while I  look after my patient," and then she realized for the first time how tired she  was.  Three hours later she was arranging  the roses on tlie breakfast table, a littlo  weary eyed, but fics.h and alert again,  and listening eagerly for voices Irom the  next room.  "Ah, rested? That's right," said Dr.  Bailey, entering briskly. "Warwick will  be here in a minute, and after breakfast  he is coming back with mc."  Mary Addison's eyes asked a question  that her tongue hesitated to phrase.  "Yes, 1 think one may hope he will ba  himself again uoforc long; but he may  call.it either good luck, or God's mercy,  according lo his turn of mind, that you  cnir.c when ynu did. lie's an excitable  fellow, and he's got into money troubles,  I gather���������and L don't mind telling you,  his reason was simply hanging in t'ho balance yesterday, lie was insane to all  intents and purposes, and if it had come  fo a struggle, if one of these natives had  tried to overpower him, ho would have  gone  mad:  Vuging, raving mad."  "Oh, poor boy; will he really recover?"  "I  hope  so,  in  time  and  with  care;  tliart sleep he got last night was the best  thing  possible."    He  laughed   suddenly.  "It's funny to look at the size of your  hands, Mrs. Addison, and think that you  have prevented a man from committing  two or tthree murders!"  "He was quite gentle with me."  "Yes, I know that sort of gentleness,  and the watching and managing it needs;  and    you're a plucky    woman, a very  plucky woman."  "Xo I'm not, not a bit," laid Mary  Addison j "but it might have been one of  my "own boys ill and in trouble, with no  one to look after him.   Fancy if Roger,  or Ted, or mj* little Dick "  Her voice broke "and fa'ne hid her face.  "There's nothing to cry for now," said  the doctor.  "That's why I let myself do it,"' said  Mary Addison, through her tears.���������  "Longman's Magazine."  "���������TO'HEAR WELL  Ono Most Konp tho Out-lilu Unr CIoi.ii nntl  Lot llio IdhUIo Alone.

A better remedy, however, Is to 111?  the mouth with; bread crust and-"wallow without chewing any more than  necessary. Hoarseness is often relieved by taking the white of an egg  that is* well beaten with loaf sueari  and the juice of one lemon.  .

To prevent in->  flammatlon la a severe burn or scald,  apply the white.of an egg. This can,  lie done quickly and will relieve tho  stinging immediately.  Some people have difficulty in tak������  Ing a raw egg when prescribed by a.  doctor. Break the egg Into'a cup. Be  careful not to break the yolk.

IFor a few seconds after the dresser  [aad softly unlocked the door and departed, she stood looking at the delicately tinted, formless mass, half  dazedly; then ahe sprang forward! and  {natched lt up in both hands.  What she held was a complete suit  |f silk fleshings, made to cover the entire body; and Winifred dropped lt to  fhe floor -with a little choking cry of  'flsgust, -as If ithe thing had been a  'Snake and writhed under the touch of  fer fingers.' Tihen she covered her face  f.-tlth her hands and stood qu'verlng.-  "Mazeppa,    ple-ase!"    the    call-boy  f-iho-uted.   Winifred did not'hear.  Five minutes passed, and she hid '.iu*.  moved. She wns thinking���������thinking,  when a thundering knock at the door  tore away the dark veil of thought In  which her spirit liad wrapped Itself.  "Miss Gray, what's the mailer?  Good gracious, they're waiting for you  on the otase." It was the voice :ol  Jeffrey,  the stage-mannger.  "I can't go on with the part," she  answered, brokenly. "Something has  harrpened.

Como on, Miss  Gray; you've got to come on."  "I can't," she panted. "I can't.",.  His answer was to catch her round  the waist and pull her out through the  open door. "You must be mad," he  stuttered. "I'll have to force you.  You've got to play.. .Make a row afterwards If you must.

" ' ,'-  ' All the actress in her nature rose and  mastered shame and despair. She  found herself answering her cues, saying her lines, going through the stereotyped stage-business. There were two  selves that fought together���������one raging -with a wild" rebellion against the  vile plot which "had trapped her; another that was like a cold, unfeeling  piece of stage mechanism wound up to  do a certain thing,' and Insisting upon  doing It though the world rocked.

Whether the old-fashioned play were  to be a -success'^or not, the audience  ���������was taking It kindly.

He was not in his "backer's" secrets,  but he had some suspicion that he had  been ibeckoned from his obscurity for  a very special .reason. There were other .men--whose-names and teputatlon  would have been of far-mora vv-alue to  the revival of this 'ancient play than  his; and, high salary or low salary, lt  was j all one to' .Mr. Macalre, if he  chose to amuse himself Coy paying "a  huge bribe to buy off a* pantomime at  the Thespian Theater of Brighton, and  pution_a.mustv.old_pIece_wJilch_every=.  one else had forgotten*thirty or forty,  years ago. , . ^  Alfter a while Wantage had begun  shrewdly to guess that*' there was  method of some", sort In the millionaire's seemingr madness,, and presently  to realize'that the whole'.'production  was but a-gigantic'ibalt to lure';one  pretty, little flsh.

It  .was her business to do what waa required of her, and ihe would see that It  waa doner, with her will or without It.  The dresser was summoned, and told  that M1ss Gray must begot ready for  the next scene. As she had fainted,  and could not help herself, she must  toe treated as If she were an Infant.

A sovereign was Slipped into the  dresser's palm, nnd she promised that,  whether Miss Gray .woke up or not,  she should be ready when she was  wanted, so far as clothing was concerned. Then she locked the door, and  stolidly set about her task.  For a time "Winifred's "���������edy was as  limp ln her hands as if the girl had  been dead, but as the work progressed  a perceptible shuddering thrilled  through the delicate limbs, and Uie  bosom rose and fell with a sobbing  "breath.  The dresser paused for an Instant,  looking critically down at the dark  line of curled lashes. "She'll be coming to herself before I'm done with  this," was her thought. "I wonder  what'll happen then?"  As she wondered there was, a gentle  tap at the door. The woman rose, and  opening it an Inch or two, peeped out.  t '.'Here's a note for Miss Gray," whls-  .pered Mr. Wantage.

Mr. Jeffrey gave Mrs. Purdy, thi-  drescer, as much time as he could con  veniently allow, and then he returnee  to the door. -"How do you get on?" hi  enquired, anxiously. "Is lt going to b.  all right?"  "3. get on as well as you might expect, sir," came the old woman's voice  in reply. " 'Twill, be all. right. Don't  you fear."

"Needs ��������� must, * when somebody  drives," he could hear an Irreverent  mumble from within.  Not far away stood the horse, Selim,  held by his groom. The animal was  used to the wings now and the lights,  and sounds of loud voices on the adjacent stage, so that he was quiet  enough. The strapping-gear was right.  Nothing remained but for Mazeppa to /  be fastened on the beautiful black  horse's back, when his skin of jetty  satin would make a marvelously effective background for the slim, apparently nude figure thrown across it.  Jeffrey listened eagerly to what .was  going on upon the stage. They were  "working -up" with every word now to  Mazeppa's thrilling entrance, which  was bound to stir the audience, shocking some, pleablng others. It occurred  to him,as he stood impatiently waiting  that this was a much better version  than the old one, and, as he had altered  it, under advice Jrom Mr. iMacaire and  Wantage, he was entitled to take some  credit to'himself. If only all went well  with this one- scene, prosperous days  might come .back to him. -  Everyone knew that the millionaire  was interested in several theaters' in  London and in the provinces,' and he  controlled two or three powerful papers  as well. Wantage was right; Macalre  was a man to be conciliated.  Four minutes passed, and he could  remain passive no longer. He went  back to the door of the dressing-room,  which had ��������� Winifred Gray's name  printed neatly on a card, tacked on the  raised^ space between the panels.  "Time's  up!"  he  announced, with a  warning rap.   "I really must have Miss  Gray now."  "Dead or alive, eh,. sir ?"��������� came from  Interesting: Items.  Tlie lack of British women in South  Africa is one of the most setious facts  with which English statesmen bave to  gi apple. A wriler in the "Quarterly Review" reckons that tiluee thousand British women are needed a year to meet  the emergency, and this is a total wliich  it should not be difficult to find in England, Where they have a very large excess of women.  The earnestness with which the problem of mechanical flight is being attacked  is utlesled by the elaborate equipment  of tho "laboratory of aerodynamical recently erected nt the Catholic University  of America.

"In view of the recent campaign* ln  tin's country for the extermination ol  mosquitoes," Uie proposition of a Gcr  man scientist for ridding localities oi  this pest is extremely interesting," aay*  the "American Inventor." "The professor in question argues that protection  from animal and insect depredation* is  frequently, secured by the erection ol,  scarecrows. He further states that inasmuch, as mosquitoes are the prey ol  dragon-flics, and that as the mosquito  avoids' this insect as much as possible,  the bodies of dead dragon-flies strung  upon wires in mosquito-infested locali  ties should succeed in scaring the mosquitoes away."  A curious feature of the Transvaal  war has been tho discovery of jam bj  the British soldier. To judge from Mr  Brodrick's printed reply to a question m  the House of Commons,' jnm has leaped  .from the rank of a household delicacy tc  the -position of a military necessary  without which a campaign can��������� hardly  be conducted to success; 34,582,70*:  pounds of jam were consumed during thr  war by thc army, most of it manufactured in England, the rest of it in tln  colonies.

The day was hot, anel scores of  bathers were enjoying tho still, 'cool wa  ter. Suddenly there was a cry from the  crowd of spectators on the wharf, and o  craning of necks. Some distance out in  the Sound, a swimmer who had been do  ing "stunts" for half an hour had sud  denly begun splashing about furiously."  _ "Help! H-e-l-p!" he cried in a frightened shriek when he came to the surface  after sinking "once.  "A shark must be after him," said b  frightened woman.  "No sharks in thc Sound," corrected n  man of-the crowd. "He's got a cramp,  and is frightened to death."  "Why does not someone save him?'  cried the woman, as there came anothei  agonizing cry from the struggling man.  Even as she spoke a strong-limbed  youth threw oil his coat and tore away  the fastenings at his shoes. One more  glance to assure him that none of the  men in bathing suits were going to the  rescue, and he plunged into the water.  "Get a boat!" cried someone, but as  usual in such cases, at that particular  moment there was no boat' around.  The rescuer was swimming out, and  the drowning man Btill splashing. The  crowd-cheered,  and - cheered  a-"ain. . It  was plain that he"would arrive in time.  "That young chap is a hero," said an  elderly woman.  "He ought to havo a medal for it,"  cricel another.  "Where is ho?" demanded a girl* who  just worshipped heroes on or off the  stage.  Then a change came over tho crowd.  Tlie rescuer wns loafing. With-another  stroke he could have grasped the drowning man, but he held back. Was he going to let him drown, after all? The  man with the cramp struggled and fought  liis way toward the rescuer and seized  his outstretched arm.  Thc rescuer struck out with , his  clenched fist, hit tba man in tho face. It  was an awful blow, and the drowning  man sank like a shot.  "Brute!" cried the crowd. "Murderer!  He's trying to kill the poor fellow I He  ought to be hanged. Just wait until he  gets back to' shore!" These and other  exclamations came from the frenzied  crowd.  Then came another change. The head  of the drowning man reappeared. He  had ceased to struggle. The rescuer was  all action. Two strokes brought him  within reach of the sinking head. Ho  grasped tho hair, rolled over on his back  and started for the shore.  , The crowd which a moment before had  been reviling him began to cheer again.  They made for the point of land to which  he was heading, that they might receive  him with open arms. Some of them  worried because thc head of the unconscious man occasionally went under the  surface. They were told that it did not  matter.^- - .,.,,,  "That was thc cleanest, most skilful  rescue I've ever seen," said a man who  seemed to know what ho was talking  about. "The big fellow that was drowning was so frightened over his cramp  that he would have taken the youngster  under with him had he not held off. He  did just thc right thing when he hit  him, and now he's bringing him ashore  in the best possible .way.

TJST as a sort of New Year's card,  the  Woman's  Suffrage  Society  of Paris have Issued a manifesto contending* that, as woman ln  her multlen  name accomplishes  all  the  dulles  or  n   clllzen,   she  doe3  prejudice  to  her  Interests  by  -*I'ikiii|-  her identity and losing her individuality in adopting  the  name  of her husband when alio marries.   Consequently,  it seems on  the tapis  that  in  future,  when Miss Smith marries Mr. Brown,  she will still  retain  her .maiden patronymic   of  Smith.    Being   married,   she  must of necessity be Mis.; therefore, lf^  she retains her maiden name of Smith,  we shall  have  the   weird  anomaly  o������  Mr. Biown and Mis. Smith as man and  wife.   Now, supposing Mrs. Smith, otherwise Mrs. Brown, should, uy any unforeseen event, meet with a Mr. Smith  in the absence of her husband, and It  should go 'fortih lo tho world���������In a hotel  visitors'  book,  for  instance���������that' they  ���������were   actually   Mr.   aind   Mrs.   Smith,  where the dielcen-*, in the event of trouble,  would  Mr.  Brown  come   in?

Experiments now heing made at the  Rio Grande shops- promise radical im-  piovi-iiient-. in the piesent method of  tiding iii hi.ilces. The new device i.s  tlio Hurst .lulmnalic air brake, and  the ud vantages over tlie West ingliiiusi  system are so pronounced that its,  atlvantages cannot he ignoieel hy  manufacturer:-. The experiment-  huve heen so thorough that the success  of the brake is no longer speculative.  The strik:ng advantage eif tho brake is.  apparent in mountain railroading,  where its superiority over other systems ia indisputable.  In elesceiiding steep graeles its value  becomes immediately apparent. The  entire train is in control of the "engineer, an*l with the Hurst system he  is enabled to set.the hiakes gradually  and apply any amount ��������� of power  desired. This insures a uuiform  amount of resistance.' "With the  present system the air is applied, and  "then released.  "When the speed of train increases  air is agahi applied, and icleased. In  other words the speed is reduced hy a  series of applications, whioh affect the  momentum only temporarily. It is  like bunging a descending died to a  stop, and then releasing' it .until the  momentum again becomes too great.'  Another advantage of the system is  that the air cylinders can be recharged  while the brakes are set, and by an  automatic arrangement there is very  little.waste of air. The other systems  waste the air when it is released from  the brake. The advantage of recharging the Hurst "cylinders while  the brakes are at work is apparent ln  descending long grades where there is  a heavy demand-for air pressure. In  the Hurst cylinders the air cannot be  exhausted..    -     "   "  '-    "    "  An automatic arrangement sets the  brake if a train pulls jipart in .climbing  a hill with the Hurst system of brakes.  A train. is more, evenly 'managed at  depots and can be brought to a stop at  " the precise point desired. This cannot be done with other systems.'. The  brakes can be used with other systems,  as the couplings are made like those of  the'Westinghouse pattern.-���������Salt Lake  Herald.      /  ' '    Mr. Fielding-'.s Generosity.-c  y*-"*J".F"-   "i .*������������������/*��������� -tf    r        ii r  The 'Dominion   Coal Company has  entered into a contract-to supply the  New England Coke and,Gas Company  of Boston, with Canadian co-tl at $1.05  - per ton.

Fielding, as Premier of  Nov* Scotia, refused to impose on the  _" Dominion Coal Company any restriction tliat "would guarantee to Canadians a reasonable protection fioni the  - demands of the coal barons. The selling pf coal^ to Americans at less than  half the price charged to Canadians'  resulted. - This is hardly flattering to  the Finance Minister. t  '���������  When   the   Crow's   Nest" Coal com-  .  pany   sought to market their fuel in  ~'iti^'UnitM^St5tes7^H6n7l^TJ77lsrael  Tarte insisted on an agreement which  - would render the company liable to a  '  penalty   of  $3   per ton for coal sold  abroad at rates below those quoted to  Canadians.

He had the satisfaction of seein** all  ���������*be cases (with one exception) fairly  ��������� carted on the road lo convalescence  ^before -he, too, c-aiue on the sick list,  ���������and was ordered absolute rest for several months. Xo mau ever deserved a  Vest more than he.  By his constant' and unwearied labors of lore he had earned the blessing pronounced; on Abou Ben Adbom  ilis, "One Who loved his \ fellow-men."  WVe all greatly missed liis cheery pros*  tsnee In the wards, and felt small in-  terest in the:' doctor'.who c:uuc as hi**  "'locum" feeling sure that no one could  take his place.  ��������� ' Dr. Freston, tho temporary houso  surgeon, however,������������������-. made a favorable  'impression on bis arrival, and soon  : showed that he thoroughly knew his  -work. He had a quiet, reserved manner, and we bad worked together ���������'some-  days before I learned anything moro  jabout liim.' Then an accident, if thero  is such a" thins,*-s"howed-mc *he real  ���������mail. One evening, on going his rounds  I reported a new case, just come in, to  -Joim. It -was a man wlio had been  ���������found lying in the road. He liad evl-  . j-dently fallen agaiu-it the curbstone and  -Toad received a scalp wound. That ho  ,-was a stranger in the town was proved  |*>y somle papers in his pocket, showing  bim to have been discharged from a  .sailing .vess-al at Hull u few days previously.  ' "I have] cot .made out "ils history  yet,*' I said; "he seems to be very  poor, and apparently has no friends."  "No friends!" repeated Dr. Freston,  ,"*vith an expression 1 had not seen ou  'bis face before. "Very few* of us realize what" those words mean, sister.  ���������It means more than mere friendliness.  It means a man's life without any in-  '."fluence for good upon it���������uo restraint  'to keep him from sinking io the lowest  "depths: no anefhor to hold him back  Jrom suffering shipwreck on the rocks  "which surround us all: some seen, and  (some hidden ones more dangerous than  all.

"Yes." he, said, slowly and absently,  as if bis ttiou-rlris were far away, "it  must always be a sad siglu, even if  those who" suffer are utter strangers  to usj'  ��������� He paused, rhon turned round to face  "scne, and spoke more Quickly, as if he  wished to force himself io say something.  To me it is the mo������t painful si-ilit  of all. because 1 am haunted by the  feeling that somewhere in this world  there" may now lv a man who Is  friendless'and alone through my fault.  "Every fresh face 1 see I think may be  Tiis. Every moniing 1 wake wit'll the  Vnousbt * that 1 may see it before  ���������algfoi."  1 looked at him with intense intor-  ���������������sst.

"And you never 'heard of him again?"  "No sound from that day to this. He  weut without money, and lie could  draw none except through mo."

"Do 'you'think that some of his  friends " I began, ral.hcr hopelessly.

Five  years���������and night nnd day 1 think ot  .those words, 'You will look after Jack,  Tom.* "  ���������Tliere -was a silence I did hot know  bow to break.  "1 think, sister." he added, looking  up with eyes which long sorrow had  tilled with wonderful doptli.of expression, "I think I should have put an  end to my life before now; but 1 knew  father's tlrst question -would be, 'Have  you looked after him, Tom''"'  The door "opened to admit the  stretcher with a new. case from the  surgery, and Dr. Freston was in a moment the professional man, absorbed  in investigating the extent of the new  arrival's injuries.  Before leaving the ward he turned  to the bedside of the piUiont whose  friendless condition had led to our  conversation. He took down the head  card to fill up the details.  "Name, sister'.'"  "George Thomas."  "Age?"  "I do not know; he looks about  forty; but he is very weather-beaten.  The doctor glanced at the tanned,  scarred face, nearly hidden by bandages, and stood hesitating, pen in hand.  "Occupation���������do  you  know'."  "Sailor."  "No other particulars,  sister?"  He laid tihe card on the table and  wiped his pen carefully���������a methodical  and orderly man iu every detail of his  work.  "I only found a few coppers and  these old papers in his pocket," I said,  showing the contents of a pocketjbbok  much the worse for wear.'.. One orum-  nled piece of paper had the words,  "15 Back Wells Court, Hull," written  upon it; probably the address of his  last lodging. I proceeded to unfold  another ��������� piece, and found an old, plain  gold lockot, worn thin and bright; oue  side was smooth, on the other was a  monogram still faintly legible,  ".T.F."  I felt it suddenly suatohed from my  hands. ��������� ""  Dr. Freston had seized it. and, carrying it quickly across the ward, turned  the gas on full, and gazed on the  locket with eyes chut seemed to pierce  it throug'li. ,_  "Look, sis-ter!" .ho said, and his  strong hand shook .as he held it towards nie, "tliere can be no mistake.  I  rume^ibor this locket so well,   .rack  ive l-y-'io my 'l'aillicr wirh this photo  ���������""aa nothing more to Jjc learned at  that address, he' told nie. The people  the������e remembered quite well a man  who gave the name of George THiomas  Bleeping there for one night a week  ago, but tliey were sure they bad no  otmer lodger at the time. Tliey knew  nothing, whatever about the man. Ho  was evidently very poor, but hs-d paid  for what ho had ihiul.  "I ought not to have built so many  hopes upon so slight a fouud-ilion," lie  replied, with a poor attempt at a  smile, and a tone of weary sorrow, in  his voice. "1 have waited so long that  I ventured to think that perhaps  at last lie������������������" lib en.' checking himself,  and with an effort turning his thoughts  elsewhere���������"biit I am late, sister. I  must catch up my work. Have you  anything for me to-night?"  "Will you sign No. ,7's paper? The  .wound was very superficial, and Mr.  .Tones discharged him this moraiiug.  He is anxious to get on."  "1 must speak to him first; he may  be able to tell me something more."  and he turned towards No. 7, sitting  by the lire, and for the first time he  looked him in the face���������the first time  for live years, rather; for I saw Dr.  Freston pause as if transfixed, and the  next moment he was at his brother's  eido.  .".Tack!" he said. ".Tack!" and could  not say another word.  But that was all'he had to say. .Tack  had been the thought of'his life, night  and day, for five years. And now  .Tack was there, and he .held Ulm fast,  what should he say but repeat ".lack!"  again and again, until he could realize  that tbis was no dream, but rather the  awakening to a better and happier  life than he 'had known before: Jack  said nothing at all. For one moment  he had looked around as if wishing to  escape; but if he would lie could hot.  And ���������where in the world that he had  found so bard and merciless could he  hope to meet fhe warm welcome which  strove to find utterance in his brother's  happy eyes, which gazed on the ragged figure before him as if he could  never lbnk enough?  That is all the tale. Tt gavo the patients something to talk about for a  day or two. and was then forgotten���������  in the ward, at least.  But ther'*. are three people from  whose memories no word or act recorded hore can ever be effaced. Need  1 name lliem? Thoy arc Dr. Freston,  ,Tnck, his brother, and myself, Tom  Freston's wife.���������Chicago Mail.

"No,  uot-ro-n'g*iit;-thu-others-are-*-a!!_ve**y_  comfortable; but do you not .think it  would be worth while to ask tliis man  where "lie got the locket?

The idea of his brother being within  reiich had taken such a hold of his  mind that be could hardly endure a  minute's delay before going off to seek  bim.  I bent over No. 7's bed.  "I found this among your things." I  said. "Is lt your own, or did some one  sell it to you?"  He looked up quickly and suspiciously-  "What do you want to know for?"  he muttered.  "I only want to know whntiher the  man who ownr-d .this first, wat* with  yon at this addivss in Mull."  lie looked at nn- sha'mly, and did  not answer for a minute.  "Yes," he "aid, slowly, "tho man who  owned that was there when I ���������win,"  and''lie turned round, aa if unwilling  to say more.  "I had learned all I wished, awl repeated the information to Dr. l"i\T,ton.  "Thank yon very much," llie said,  simply. "' "flood night, sister;, I may  not see 7011 for a few days." He was  already on the landing.  '"flood night, Dr. Freston," but I  doubt if he hoard me. He was halt-  way downstairs.  Next (lay Dr. Freston'H work was  done by thn Junior surgeon, and the  ward routine went on as usual.  I could find'out nothing more ot No.  7's history, except "that his real nge  was twenty-**!ght. Ho. looked at. least  ten years older. Ho was knocked  about a good deal in the world, he  told some of his follow patients.  His injuries proved to be very slight  and on tihe evening of tbo second day  he was allowed to sit up for a short  time.  On thc day following, wlien It. was  growing dusk, tihe door of the ward  opened, and Dr. Freston came qult-cr  ly in.  I saw nt a glance that ho had not  been successful In his search.    Tliere  Tlie Kcc<*ntri.-lty ���������>f lair,  'An action highly interesting to  lovers of both sexes' was uot long ago  heard before Judge Kay, of Boston.  The plaintiff, a young lady, the'daugh-  ter of a wealthy gentleman, became  engaged to the defendant against her  parents wish. When the engagement  was broken oft the defendant made  demands for money, and to enforce his  claims, threatened to publish the love  letters that had passed belween them.  An 'application for an injuntion to  restrain him from doing so was made,  nnd not only granted, but the defendant Tiad to pay the costs.  A peculiar action was recently heard  at a country court. The defendant in  the case possessed a piece of forest  ���������land, and on this land a thick crop of  thist.lcs sprang up. When the wind  was high the seed from these was  blown into the pl-.vintifi's garden, took  root, and did damage. He accordingly sued for compensation, and recovered !>lo damages.  Damas-cs to the extent of $5,000 for  the omission of a single word in a  newspaper report seems a .heavy penalty for what might, after all, havo  boen a more printer's error. Such,  however, was awarded not long since  for the omission of the word "not" in  an* Irish  newspaper.  A curious application was mado not  long ago before a justice of the peace.  A baby, having been left by Its morhcr  wlth another woman to mind. she. on  hearing tbat the mother had disappeared, tried, but without success, to got  it into the workhouse. The lawyer  who appeared for the woman told rhe  justice that unless he admitted the  baby into the workhouse at once he  would leave it in his custody. He  thon directed tho woman to placo the  buby on the court table and walk out,  which she did,* leaving the feeding-  bottle witli the unlucky infant. "The  child is now destitute and neglected,"  "saiTl~t"ne -i a w y e r.���������'-a-ad-y->u r_honor_Lca.n  order its removal to the union."

We' all know where  wo camo from, if ������he didn't, and soma  wine of us held strange opinions as to  Ml������������ Mayborry's ulbimate destination;  butt that is neither here nor tliere.  Still, it was "rather a startler," when  old Mr. Egglestons, of Beranondsey,  came down to Wlllowtxiwu to live. He  was fabulously ..ridh; he swallowed  peas: with Ms knife, and called *l"hem  "marrerfa'ts;" he was impatient, headstrong, choleric, apoplectic. Two important facts saved 'hi-m from social  ostracism���������bis aldermanic dinners and  his daughter Sempronia.  It la not very easy to describe Sempronia. Her beauty had tan elusive  way of defying description. Wben":she  entered a room people were vaguely  conscious that something pleasant had  happened. If you were fortunate  enough to take her in to dinner she  confirmed that Impression. Even mock  turtle lost its mockery when she sat  beside you. Not that old Eggleston  often put people off with mock turtle;  he. was far too fond of dipping his  white beard in the genuine thing to  wish to "impose imitations on his  guests. ' Poor Harry Nichson's troubles, however, began the first time he  dined at the Egglestxins', owing to Mr.  Bg-rloston's ambiguous speech. My.  Eg-jlestoo-i was,gobbling away at his  soup, and only'left oft to observe that  he "couldn't 'eat the 'ot 'ouse."  "But, my dear sir," observed Harry  "nothing but an ostrich could eat your  ���������hothouse."  "Don't yon be Impertinent, young  man," retorted Mr. Eggleston, "or you  and 'me'U 'ave words: I will 'eat lt if  I   like.  Sempronia threw oil on the troubled  waters, but not berfove Mr. Eggleston  had remarked to the remains of his  soup that Harry was "a nordaoious  sparrer."  Sempronia was fond of her fathe-".  She didn't obtrude the fact, but skilfully contrived to "throw   her ��������� mantle  over bim at .all the social functions or  the neighborhood.    It soon oeoame an  understood  thing that  any. one  who  poked  fun  at  Mr.  Eggleston  had  no  chance   of   winning   the   good graces  of     his     beautiful ; daughter.       Her  mother     liad     been     a     lady ��������� a  very  feeble one, and married -Eggleston on account ot his strong-mindedness.    Mrs. Egglestou's relatives were  so astonished by the originality of such  a reason tihat they cut her..  It preyed  on  Mrs.   Eggleston  a  good  deal, 'but  she lived very happily with ber husband until Sempronia was born. Then,  like Mrs. Dombey. "she couldn't make  an effort���������and died!    People who saw  poor Mr. Eggleston at that awful t".me  said  that he was  as  one  distraught.  He sat by tlie dead  woman, "holding  her. hand until -she was taken away to  the crave.   Then he fell down in a fit:  He was only prevented from following  his wife inro tho silent land by hearing the doctors say that he hadn't a  chance ot living.    In order to contradict them he recovered.   If he couldn't  " 'eat the 'ot 'ouse" il wasn't, for want  of trying h's jaws ou everything else  he came across.  Still, with all his faults,.old Mr. Eggleston was much beloved In Willow-  town. His speech when he first took  tlie chair at thc "Penny Readings"  was a, model of metaphorical research.  Whea_LJook .j-mind.. 'ere,"  ihe  said  less to say. the baby *ra* soon taken  to the relieving ofiicer and conveyed  to the'workhouse.  The action for slander brought by  Mr, George Augustus Salri some  years ago against Mr. Harry Furniss  will be remembered. The slander complained of was uttered by Mr. Furn.KS  ln a speech. In the course of wliich he  said that Mr. Sala. in submitting throe  drawings of a head, foot and hand to  the Academy, unfortunately portrayed  six toes Instead of five upon the foot  he drew, and so did not get into the  schools. T.he Jury gave Mr- Sala **23  damages.  i.lnni'a firxxK In t.hr> WttrUrt.

This Is quite  wrong. I.ions ilia ve for some time been  almost a drug on the market, and except when they are remarkably largo  they do not .fetch a large price. Tho  craze of late years has been after rare  animals which are very difficult to  capture.  "The white wildcat of Russia Is  worth almost, a 'fortirno, and one was  sold quite recently for the apparently  ridiculous sum of ."512,000.

Still,  It's a fine thing to have a picture gallery full of .beautiful murderesses and  rnlTlns In armor and Sir 'Ugos and Sir  lAinchalots, and l.afly Ediths of the  white nnd, nnd srltdlUke."  Sempronia did not object to Nicholson's picture gallery at all. She* and  Nl'fholson wore always together. Of  course, Nicholson was poor. Indeed,  liis picture gallery was his chlof possesion. He w,as expected to live up  to it. Peoplo supposed tbat ho did  something for a living,' but no ono  : knew exactly what it was. One day,  however. It occurred to him that he  f was In love.  "I'm poing away," lie said abruptly  to Miss^Rggleslon.  They were sitting by the drawing  room lire.'; It was ouly 0:30, but Just  nfter Christmas lt is very dark at that I  time. Miss Bg-gleston w-Js cflod ln  black Telvet, -and what Mr. Eggleston  called "tihe fain'ly ��������� dtaions" sparkled  on her whi te neck. Mr. Eggleston always insisted on her wearing jewels  at dinner.

Italher thnu be called  by such an -awful word, as "par-  venoo" Mr. Eggleston Apologized, and  PorkWis "uirled the hatchet.  When Nicholson said he was going  away Sempronia didn't like it at all..

"Going away?" she asked. "Surely,  Mr. Nicholson, .hliis is rather a sudden  freak."  Nicholson rose from his chair and  stood looking down .on! her.' He was  black as a crov*,' but 'with a prepossessing blackness." He bad a very  musical voice, bis gayety was Infectious, and people lingered to listen to  his laughing witticisms. But he did  not seem inclined to be funny to-night  For so mercurial n youth he was de-"  oidedly serious. His hand twisted tOia  beautiful stud in his immaculate shirt  front. Altogether he was very preoccupied. The rug wasn't big enough.  Ho trod on the St. Bernard and was  stricken 'by remorse.  "Such an owl Is well out   of    the  way," he said.    "Miss Eggleston, I'll  go."  "You forget that you dine with us.  "Ob, no; I don't forget.  Perhaps you  will lot-me off:   I'm not fit for tlie gid-'  dy-throng to-night."  "It isn't a giddy throng.. There will  be papa and Mr. Gubbins.,; True, Mr.  Gubbins is volatile���������away from Mrs.  TJubbins���������.but you cannot call papa  giddy."  "No. I'm off to-morrow.. In fact.  I've made a discovery."-     ' "'  "In the picture gallery? Or buried  treasure in the paddock?"  "Don't scoff at my poverty." he sa,id~  with  repressed  feeling.    "Don't scoff  at that. -God knows ��������� I never felt it until to-night."  "And why to-night?"  "To-night?"   with   assumed indifference.   "Well, even the lightest-hoirted  fellow finds Black Care perched ifi his  shoulder sometimes.   I���������I was actually  thinking this afternoon."  "No wonder you are tired.'- But she  didn't look at him.  "Yes; funny wasn't it?. - Actually  thinking. What do you - think, -I  thought; about?"  "I don't know. - Something interesting?"  "I can't say that.    It seemed Interesting���������to mc."  - She smiled.  "I went up to  the   gun room, aud  flung myself into a chair.'.'  "And lit a cigar.", '  "Well.   yes.

And hero  Was this irrational yoni ii. wlio loved  her, going off to be scalped by Pawnees or Conianches or " Sioux, or  Apaches, or any other outlandish tribe  of Indians with whom fate might confront him. Why not stay at'home and  have bis balr pulled only, in tlie family  ; circle? And it was such beautiful  hair. Now, If tihe Kev. Mr," Gubbins  were to.be scalped by the heathen, it  would not matter nearly so muc'h. A  fringe of dirty gray hair could easily  be removed, but those hyacinthine  locks! It made her* sick to think of  the scalping knife circling round their  ebon glories. However, she dissembled after the manner of women, and  .lightly bade him good-by.  He disappeared in the darkness, feeling that desperate sorrow which only  comes to a man once in a lifetime, for  the simple reason that he couldn't possibly live through it twice. "By Jove,"  he muttered between his ��������� teeth, "it  would go hard with any one who  crossed me to-night."  "Har���������Harry!" gurgled a choking  voice from the shrubs. " 'Elp���������*Elp!"  The next moment Harry bad jump-'  ed Into the bushes. A bullet whizzed-,  by his ear as he did so, and a cowardly ruffian, who had half strangled Mr.  Eggleston, fled into the unknown.  "My wife's portrait." cried Mr. Eggleston.    "They knocked me down ns  1 was coming up the walk " -  Harry ran swiftly down the avenue,  his pulses tingling with fierce joy, and  all the savage within liim revelling in  .the prospect otf a fight.  Just as he reached the gate liis foot  tripped against ������. rope, wliich was  strctefhed ncross tlie'drive. There was  another shot���������a red-hot, scaring, tearing dart in his slioulder���������and he fell  forward on bis face, while the cracksmen made oft- across the fields, cursing their own > stupidity in beginning  operations so prematurely. Porkins  : disappeared with', them.  Harry was carried Into the house  and laid on a couch. ��������� Doctors were*  telegraphed for right and left. For  hours he remained with pallid features  and closed eyes. The doctors shook  their heads and looked ' wise. - The  wound was a serious one; the 'bullet  hard to find; if certain things didn't  happen the, patient would recover; If  'thoy did happen, he wouldn't; that  wis nil that could be extracted from  them as, they nodded with sphilixlike.  gravity, and returned to their patient.  Sempronia sat beside Harry through,  ..the long .niglit. It was .useless'to dissimulate' any more. -She.-was quite  tearless and as wliitc as' wax. Every  now and then she moistened his lips  or smootihed the pillow, but did not  give way to her grief. It was only  towards morning on the second day  after the doctors bad extracted tho  bullet that she betrayed any excitement, lu tihe cold, gray dawn,' a robin  deluded into momentary, cheerfulness  by the thought that spring would surely come some day, began to twitter  his cheery melody to the casement's-  glimmering square. Thc song of the  bird smote Sempronia. ' She shivered,  and bonding over the wo\mdcd man,  kissed him passionately..' "Ah,", she  moaned, as she flung herself on her  knees by the couch, "I was cold, and  hard, and cruel to you, 'but I never  meant to let.you'leave , me.

This is the striking' conclusion  reached by Bonfort's VVino and Spirit  Circular (New York), in-a recent review of the-trade situation. It says :������������������  '"lhe. average saloon is out of line with  public sentiment. Thc, average saloon  ought not to bo defended by our trade,  but it ought to be condemned. In small  towns the.average saloon is a nuisance.  It, is a resort for all tough characters."  and in thc"south for..all.idle-.ucigi'oos.  It uj generally ou a, prominent street,  and it'is usually'run by. a" sport'who  cares^.only for .the almighty dollar.'From  this resort the drunken man starts reeling ..to his', home; at this resort the  local lights are indulged in. ft is u  stench ivrf *-*ie nostrils of society and a'  disgrace to the wine and spirit tra'da.  How, then, shaU'we defend tlie average  saloon 1 We answer, Don't dotend it, but  condemn it. We must stand abi east of  thc most advanced public sentiment; wa  must oppose prohibition, but tavor only  decent trade; we must oiler society a  substitute for thc aveiage "saloon; we  must ask society to join with us in  securing model liceuso laws; wc must  demand character qualifications and g-*t  men in thc retail liquor business who  will conduct their places a3 drug stores,  for instance, are-conducted.

In the last edition to hand of "Our  Young Mon,". a cloier .������������������.little penny  magazine, publishc'. in London, ling.,  tlieie appears lu. following short, do-  cidodcly iiiLcvcsting-niticle by Sir Cil-  be;'t Parker, M.P., bearing" the title.  "Unto You.���������Young'-:Men":���������     '   ���������  "Jt is very easy to give advice, and  for my own part 1 have taken very little advice in the world, ohieiiy, 1* suppose, because 1 have asked so liltlc; also,  because, unless the matter on which', advice is'sought is ono to which a general 'principle can he applied, it is as likely to do harm as good. I am speaking now  more particularly of advice upon tho  matters connected .with the business of  life. 1 think we can all help each other  a great deal by advice in personal and  moral affairs. In the work of'life, however, in the making of a career, 1 believe  the root of the thing is in tlie mau  himself, aud no advice is of much valua  unless ths man feels in his bones it was  the true counsel to receive. I havo been  asked sometimes by people very noar  arid dear to mo questions as to what  course to pursue where the business oi  professional interests of lifo were concerned, and my reply invariably has  been: 'What do you feel that you must  do? I know what I should do if tlio  circumstances wero miue, but I do not  think or feci or work quito in the same  way that you do, and to suggest a course  which would be my course might be to  advise a path unsuitable to you.'  "I believe that thesecret of success in  life  is  what  1   may call  a  woll-delined  policy,   a   goal,   an   object   in "view���������to  make tho most of yourself; to test yourself; not to be-impelled by a wish for  worldly honor or profit, but iirst to secure that  competence wliich makes  every'man a better citizen of thc Stale,  because self-supporting, and then to use,  as is his duty,  every energy dud every  ability he possesses to its utmost.    J"o-  tliing is sadder than wasted energy, misdirected force.    On thc other hand, nothing is so useCuras conservation of energy.   I believe that a grcat'number of  young men are continually working uscv  lessly in order to 'be" active, to lie constantly hammering on the anvil; to keep  things" going   seems  to   them   the-tme  way to .succeed.      It is well to    stiike  when the iron is hot, but it is also "well  not to strike until the iron is liot.   To  act is good;  but  to chooss wisely    tlio  * time for action is what makes it good  To do  things in season and out of season is an axiom which is followed much  too  often, I believe.  ��������� "Action, without the watchful eye, the  careful and observant mind, which sees  the moment to stiike and then promptly   delivers   the  blow,  as  often  as  not  mars chance  and fortune.    The danger  of-our age is that we do too much and  think too little.   There is nothing moie  Bplcndid  than energy and forco applied  to  an object; with enthusiasm, with an  ardent purpose.   There is also nothing so  'good''as seasons of passive thought, of  apparent    idleness, of meditation    fiee  from the imp" of restless action constantly nudging, the elbow.  "While being" direct of purpose ono  should avoid being narrow. The main  idea should be at the back of the'head  all the time, but the greatest elasticity  of action in detail should be cultivated  go long as it is not out of harmony with  the, general purpose of life. With all  these things nothing is so valuable as  self-reliance. I have seen this joined to  extraordinary shyness and modesty. Shyness is not a bad fault. It is more to  be desired than a personal aggressiveness. The chief thing is to know what  you want,"and then to move steadily towards ^ it, remembering always to play  the game fairly, and realizing that you  never get eat* foothold on the ladder  of life by, pulling another man down."

Henderson of Iowa,  Speaker of the House or Congress, who  has announced his intention of resigning. It is said that he does nothing  half way.- Often his political opponents  at Washington ��������� had considerable fun  with him because of the light he showed  in pushing certain measures, whicli to  them did not seem to demand such a  bellicose spiiit. Such ail opportunity for  sport was,offered to the Democrats when  Colonel Henderson became tho earnest  champion of free seed distribution, it-  was a delight to him to send out seeds  to his ruial constituents, and one'of the  postal cards which he received in ae-  knoTflodgment bore this message: -  "John's influence    can't be got'   with  -rflftcen-eents'-worth-of-scedSj-but-if-you  -.will send me a box of hairpins, I will  look after him.

An  inipulsivs occupant of the press gallery  had sprung to his feet, waved an imaginary baton, and began singing the Dox-  ology." "Instantly some members hegaii  to join in, but in a feeblo way, when  Mr. Henderson pushed his way to the  . front, .turned his can* into a baton, and  started to sing at the top of his'Hungs.  The chorus grew louder and louder,  until at the'close every one who could  sicg was singing. A few thought tho incident unseemly, but when Mr. Henderson beard of such criticism he said:  "Those Democrats needed sometliing to  keep them from eternal -sunLshmcut, so  " I triad to do all 1 could for them." Col.  Henderson was born in Scotland. His  family emigrated to tha United States  when ths, Speaker wa-i only a hoy. He  was renowned for his strength aud  prowess at wreitling. One time - a  stranger, taller and moro muscular than  "Dave," same to the lowan home aud  challenged him. Despite the unequal  contest; "Dave" went into it with his  characteristic impetuosity, and as a result the., stranger threw him and broke  his wrist and forearm, lt was a long  time: before! he eould do-manual, work  again, and in the interim David "began  to study.

Xot tar  away from my home lives a man who  certainly is making poultry-keeping profitable. A friend passing: through the  yard of this man a few days ago reported that all about the yard on tho  fround could be seen grain which thc  ens had neither the ambition nor thc  apparent"desire to pick up. Tliey were  walking ahout the yard happy and contented, stopping now and then to pick  up" a bit of corn or other toothsome  morsel.

The Queen, who is  quicklv touched by grief, especially'that  of a child, inquired ol the woman what  the trouble was, and if the littlo fellow  was ill.

Any breed will lose its prestige it the  selection of the best individuals is not  strictly adhcied to; and all breeder*  rely moro upon the exploits of certain  members of their herds or Hocks than  upon the whole, ,for, no matter how  careful the breeder may be, or how  judiciously he may mate his animals,  he will have .some that will tall below  the standard^ of excellence. If the  experienced breeder of pure-bred stock  is compelled to continually select and  breed from the best sires and dams it  should he more important tor the farmer not' only to improve with pure-bred  Bires, but to use only the best to be  obtained. But the majority of farmers  are disposed to purchase tho "culls" ol  the breeder for breeding purposes, and  are disappointed if they do not secure  good results, it is never profitable to  use an inferior animal for any purpose,  more especially when grading up a herd  or' tlock, as the better the sure the greater his influence. Worthless sfrcs should  rather be avoided, as they entail "loss  of time, labor and . money.' <The male  Is "half of the herd," tor every young  animal partakes of his cnaractenstics,  its value depending more upon the excellence of the sire and the advancement  of the herd, and in exact ratio with the  Influence 'of that parent. Pedigree is a  safeguard and protection, but pedigree  alone ,is not to be relied upon. The  form,, disposition, health and other indications must assist in selection, but,  as some sires can give no evidence of  their value until tried, the pedigree  should never be overlooked, as it points  out the several families among breeds  that have excelled, and also the best  individuals among those lamilies. Kvery  farmer should endeavor to bo a breeder,  and also to breed to a standard of excellence, by" selecting the best to be obtained of'any breed.���������Philadelphia Kcc-  ord.

No up-to-date stockman thinks in  theso days of rapid growth of feeding  a steer after he has passed his ,30th  month. Iu the same way the big hog  of 300 to 500 pounds weight has also  disappeared. A young animal makes its  most rapid growth during the iirst days  of its existence. Thc rate of growth decreases gradually with age. The secret  of success in swine raising, then, is to  sell thc animal as soon as it ceases to  convert feed into flesh with profit.  This means, of course, a quick-maturing  type, and thc result is "pig pork." The  pig has been forced by a sort of hothouse -process to make at 200 pounds a  close imitation of a fully-matured hog,  just as baby beef has, by special development and selection, been mado to  take the place of the ripened steer.  Keep no pigs during tbe winter months,  except for breeding purposes. Sows  should farrow in March or April, and  with their litters well protected against  inclement weather they will get a good  start, so that the husky little weanlings .will go on summer pastures in fine  order. Good pastures should be the  piece de resistance or young porkers'  I diet, with middlings and skim milk* on  the side, garnished with charcoal, and  don't forget that a pig takes water like  a duck. A most successful pig feeder  in St. Louis County has a clean pond,  where pigs may swim and cool themselves, but they are always clean. Finish off Mr. Porker with a little corn  and put the money he brings in rout  Christmas . stocking. Then you will  know what Mother Goose meant when  l^-hc handed down thc classic line,  \ "This' little pig went to market."  Most farmers will want to raise two  litters a year, but if cost1 of production  is carefully followed up.the spring far-  \ rows will undoubtedly pay best if they  axe kent orowim*.���������I'liral .World,  "S*r������*������r Ilnn-rer l-'rom.'Holtte*..- ,  It has been discovered that-many o<_  the prairie,fires that  have, de-itroved    "   ,  the grass on the ranges    in Montana! -  and in the western 'part of-"Dakota*,    ^  have boen'sturtcd by-the concentrat-fr'-T --.J  ing qf the rays of the sun" upon brok--/- ^.^  Wb^r^boUTe^that"-aTe-'.'icattefed-free"-i7^--*-:---  ly along the cattle trails and wagon*   ;~  roads, which offers a new argument"   ' ���������"-  for the use ot the temperance    folicj  " -it  Numerous fires have started'far away;  from human haunts and   habitation--,  miles beyond the reach of,sparks frcm.  the smokestack ot a loco.motive, andi'  tbe farmers and ranchmen have been  so mystified as to their origin    that* ,    '  several      investigations      havo   beers  snade".
