Wnli* open tow ns are (apparently  nunc lively tlinn towns that are classed  as "i-lm-ril." But wide open towns are  demoralizing, becnu*-e it is impossible  to keep Lhe wide open element within  bound*,. The wide open element  continually seeks tn break away from  res-traiut.

A/stoiy of Seattle / is told by an  Associated Pi ess despatch, da tea the  4lh instant, jt is as follows:  Seattle, Dec.: 4.- Judge Bell loday  signed an order summoning a grand  jury, but biter, in.the day found Unit  he would have to' wait awhile. "The  law reads that a grand j.iry can be  summoned only on the second S ilur  daj'of the month, so thnt the earliest  possible moment Judge Bell can  convene the jury is December 13th.  He announced -tonight that, he would  Munition a jury as".soon as the.law  allows." r*."-   -    A. -. t   -.    -,*. '     '  ' ' This" 1 ou 11 seems to be standing over-  '.1 moi al volcano, and lhe eruption is  jlue to happen most any day."'One of  Ihe'daily 'papers and a large class of  citizens 'are 'clamnring' loudly for -ix  gi'and.jury to investigate���������not minor*-  ���������but open charges of the grosses!  official "corruption and.grafting. In  the streets arid public places Seattle's  moral deterioration, and the low  standaid of official ' morals are tbe  sole topic of conversation." Seattle  people themselves say that St. Louis  in her, palmiest, days did tint equal  Seattle for. civic debaucheiy; mid that  the only proper comparison for Seattle  is the condition of the ancient cities of  the plain���������Sodom and Gomorrah.  Five years ago Seattle extended a  general invitation-to the gambler-, and  dive keepers of the woi Id to eomej to  open up and to do business. The invitation was accepted with unanimity,  and today Seattle is suffering to the  liniit'fioni the cup of municipal poison  of which'she involuntarily imbibed.  'The.other  night Opis Read,'famed  _t h e .world- o ver. as   a - novel's t and.  newspaper man, stood in Seattle's new  tenderloin, and mused:      . ,    '  "I have seen the white*Impels of  eveiy city in the civilized world, but I  never saw anything as bad as this. It  surpasses Paris an'd ' London and  Vienna."  .Several months ago the police ordered that the dives and tbe like quit the  paved district and go down into what  is known locally as the old blackchapel  district. It is charged lhat good  motives did not inspire that Older.  Some people with a pull, including one  of the liu geBt grocery Arms in town,  had purchased a lot of property in the  new district, nnd they used their pull,  it is claimed, to force the half world  to rent fiom them.  The tenderloin, save the larger gam  tiling houses and the so called bettei  class of sporting houses, moved into  the new district, and there sprung up  in the vicinity a hosL of variety  theatres, dance halls, purlieus and  dives, which have shocked even the  most case hardened of Seattle's citi  zens. They have even shocked the  police force! *'  Nightly in some of the dives the  wildest carnivals of debauchery are  carried on. Licentiousness has heen  superseded hy the lowest and worst  fGi-uis of degeneracy, and is some  places, notably the notorious Midway  dive, things go on that would put  Paris to the blush of shame.  In one variety theatre the third  flooi is used for cribs in which women  of the most degraded order consort-  Victims made drunk in the dive below  are bustled up to the third floor, where  their few remaining dollars are stripped from tbem by bags. Dance halls  with all their attendant vices, are  established everywhere, and evil stalks  abroad, flaunting itself in the face of  every pasaerby. Municipal rottenness  has indeed reached her acme.  Naturally the breaking point wai  reached, and it came, as was to be  expected through a quarrel among the  vicious element themselves. As slated  the larger gaming houses were not  required to move into" tbe new tenderloin. They continued to do business  tip town; but down in the new hell  hole, ground floor gambling sprung up  eveiy where, wliich soon diverted a  huge amount of money from thu  l.-ugev places.   Then came a roar.  In some way. known only to the  gambleis, a superior judge interfered  and ordered the police lo put gam tiling  on the upper floors. This older, it  was apparent on its face, was issued  diiectly in the inteiest of tbe larger  gaming bouses. The police carried out  thi; judge's older.  But it lasted only one day. Some of  the ground floor gamblers visited the  police headquarters. What transpii ed  theie is likewise secret but the order to  move upstairs was rescinded and  gambling in the new tenderloin was  resumed on the ground floor.  Aftei backing down Chief ot Police  Sullivan left town. His going was the  signal for the outpouring df a flood of  rumors that divers other city and  county officials would, stiller with him.  In the face'of all "these rumors the  chief returned, and -those who talked  to him say he .was fiightened at the  tremendous uproar -ftom . the vicious  classes and at, the .clamor of good  citizens. Anyway Inst Saturday night  he ordered gambling closed all over  lown. The result is that not a wheel  is tinning. The dance halls ahd money  paying slot machines suffered a like  tate.  Nobody creditsthe chief wilh disinterested motives. - Good'and bad alike  think he was - terrified hy the storm  cloud that was. plainly gathering, and  th it he took-the easiest way out of his  dilemma. His order was not altogether  sweeping. - While -'he closed gaming  houses and dance halls, he permitted  the notorious - dives and ��������� purlieus to  keep open. ' The Midway still couducts  its nightly saturnalia.  New Master Mechanic.

Dr. Mclnnes, of Vancouver, formerly  lieutenant-governor of B. C, is ouL  with his electoral address. Dr. Mclnnes states in effect that the opposition members for Victoria did more  for Victoria at Ottawa than the government memhers from Vancouver did  for Vancouver, ancl there was nothing  gained sendirg a Liberal parti'/.an to'  Ottawa. He states that British Columbia has not been treated properly  in the fishery question, and that the  conservative government had in this  respect done much more for the  province than the liberals. He referred  to Sir Wilfrid JLaurier's going back on  his promises on the Chinese question,  and said that the government considered the effect on the C. P. R. revenue  in excluding Chinese more than the  welfare, of the province; that the  liberal government had made a profit  out of Chinese of $1,022,070; that the  surplus over revenue taken from the  province in tbe last ten years was  $12,403,019, and now amounted to  about $2,000,000 a year, and at the  same time enormous demands on the  Dominion treasury were heing made  by the eastern provinces; that Sir  Wilfrid Laurier had done less than the  Conservatives in the' way of cabinet  representation for British Columbia.  Dr. Mclnnes favors a revision of the  tariff lo encourage Canadian industry,  and is opposed to the liberal policy bf  immigration. He was for keeping  Canada for Canadians, and would  oppose all measures against the interests of the province and support all  measures in the province's favor.  TESTIMONY  Of the Richness of the Famous  -Silver Dollar Group, the Property of the Fish River Mines  Limited.   '        ������  -*-.  The Spokane Daily- Chronicle of  December 8th has the following interview in regard to the Silver Dollar  grout) bonded by Revelstoke people  last week :%.-���������.,-  - C. H. Smith is in the city from the  Lardeau and Fish river districts. He  states that this has been a most successful season for that district and that  more money is being invested in both  camps than .ever before. The largest  deal that has been made for some time  is   the  bonding   of   the   Silver Dollar  group .-'ml the taking over of the pro*  perty by .1 strong companv that is now  being organized. Thc terms of Uie  deal have not been made known, but  it is stated to be in the neighborhood  of $60,000.  The property is situated on Pool  creek-nnd   ahout    $10,000   worth     of  develu, nt work has been done on it.  The showing is excellent, and the ore  bodies, while not particularly large,  arc vei v 1 ich. The pioperty is a silver  piopoMi iuii and there is a great deal  of ore already in sight that .will run  over 100 ounces in silver.  Theie are -.everal gold ledges  on the other claims in the  Silver Dollar group that wilh  further development will prove of  value. These ledges run from 10 to 20  feet in width and the values go fiom  $4 to $150 to the ton. The ore is much  lhe same in character as is found in all  the mines in the camp.  In tbe Lardeau district the big bodies  of free milling gold ore are attractiui.'  .1 great deal of attention. The work  done on the Beatrice, Triune, Gold  Finch, Nettie L. and Silver Cup has  established the fact that it is a great  gold aud sii ver district. The Western  Star company is nowdoingconsiderablp  work and the prospects for a big mine  are of the best.

JESSE F. FORBES, Ph.  "J D.,     Pastor    Adams     Muuioriiil  ' Prc-jbyt--.iau Church, New York  * City.  ������  Many men dislike to servo on a jury.  The work i> arduous. Uie pay is small.  Government demand-- tliis ior the public weal. Enforced d.ily under modern  ���������"rule, however, i. exceptional, it wa������  eot so in the days of rtiii.-icnt Koine.  :>he demanded public service from  "everybody, and especially from Iier eo:i-  guered colonies. Did a Roman soldier  ���������ceed a guide? The Jaw ailo'icd liim to  compel any man to accompany liim on  bis journey, not only to show the way,  but to bear his burden. Jn liis Sermon  on tho Mount Jestis is talking to some  whose feet had been weary and whoso  shoulders had ached under Koman exaction. Did He say, "The service i3 hard,  resist to the utmost;" On thc contrary, He bade them do a double duty.  'Whosoever fchall compel thee to go a  anile, go with hiin twain." Do the required task joyously; yea, if possible,  do twice as*much as you are asked to  <do. Go not one mile, but two. 'i'lie  taw, then, of life and service is brielly  comprehended iu the phrase, "The second mile."'  "Much of service is forced service. The  necessity of pro\iding food, raiment and  shelter dri\ es us weary miles, ofttimes  against  our  will.    Circumstance"   beset  u/-behind and before.    J'"or example, a  young lady wishes, to become a teacher.  "She   looks  forward  to  this  as   her   lite  -work." She studies hard. Her hope sccni3  -m   a  fair    way     of  realization,    when  mother  is   taken  sick.    Necessity  compels  the  daughter  to leave school  nnd  \co toil in the household nursing the in-  -.valid parent.    Instead of reading J-.atin  -she washes dishes:   in place ot  algebra  she bends-over Uie droning board.    Such  i������ God'B ordering.    Again, a loving wifo  :1s deprived of her husband.    Iier homo  is broken up and her heart is left desolate.    She    is  forced    to  toil    for  her  -bread.

Wyckoff, a  well-known American writer on economics, bears out the statements made  from time to time in interviews by British manufacturers and public, men visiting Canada. Time and again these  have declared that more was heard of  the "American invasion" of Britain on  this side of tlie water than in the old  land itself; that most of tho factories  and industrial establishments of Britain  were crowded with orders, and Unit the  sharp reaction expected to follow on  the close of the war hud failed to materialize. There was, however, an increase in the number of unemployed.  According to The Labor Gazette (ling-  land), the 222 trade unions, with an aggregate membership of r>*il,5U'i. reported  1.5 per cent, unemployed at the end of  .August, compared villi 3.U in August,  11)01. Tlie mean percentage of unemployed returned at the end of August  during the ten years JSU2-100' was 4.4.  The following extract is taken from "Mr.  WyckoIFs article, which hears the litlo  ''Great Britain's Prosperity":���������The present prosperity of Gic.it Britain is perhaps without a parallel in her InsLory.  it has been the fashion lo lcpresent her  us falling into economic decay, and  Englishmen have themselves fostered the  illusion to serve some desired end. I  have found it highly diverting to watch  this process operating from the opposite  poles of social poljey. An opponent of  organized labor turns the threatened  danger into a weapon of attack upon  trades unionism, while a stanch trades  unionist creels it into a bogey with  which to frighten the BriUsh public into  a sense of the necessity of technical education. Kaeh of them has his tongue in  his cheek while he speaks of Groat Britain's industrial decline. The demonstrable truth, as it seems to me, is that  Great Britain's commercial loss is a relative one as compared, for example,  with the recent commercial gains of thc  United States and of Germany, and that  her own progress in wealth and in commercial strengUi is nn absolute one, as  measured hy the increase in the assessment for tlie income tax, nnd Uie sums  passing through the clearing house, and  the amount of paid-up capital iif stock  companies, and the tonnage in steam  shipping, and the volume ol business of  cotton factories, and the output of coal  mines, und the production of pig-iron,  and the deposits of savings banks, .ind  the capital of co-operative societies, and  the funds of trades unions, and even  the income from foreign and coloiri'al  investments. These are matters whEol?  are reducible to statements in the terms  of the coin of thc realm. A fact less  capable of precise statement, but quite  as convincing as testimony to her present prosperity and to its wide incidence, is tlie practical disappearance from*  Great Britain of the problem of the unemployed. When, under existing condi-'  tions of competitive production and a  proletariat struggling for the means of  subsistence, there ceases to be an unemployed class in the usual sense, one-  may rest assured that the coimnerci-d  prosperity for the time being is indisputably real. At all times he is a rasli-  innn who becomes prophetic of industrial"  changes.  ���������A  TUtiliir  Pur  Ilie FnrmcTr.

In some quarters Canadian exporters  of cattle consider their country to havo  suffered a great injustice and considerable loss through the embargo on Dominion stock coming to this country,  and being subjected to the same treatment as is imposed upon the boasts imported from the United Stales. The  Board of Agriculture, very wisely perhaps, and no doubt honestly, saw lit to  close our markets against the importation of American live stock by making  the slaughter of cattle1 compulsory within certain restricted areas. Some eight  or nine years ago Canadian cattle enjoyed the freedom of the home markets,  being sent to all parts of the kingdom;  but, owing to eases of pleuro-pnciinionia  among thc cattle���������wliich, hy the way,  was stoutly contested by thc Canadian  authorities, who refused to admit it,  and who failed to lind the disease in  Canada���������the restriction against their  entry alive into the English market  was promulgated- Naturally enough,  this disorganized the trade very much  at the time, and catjacd no little disturbance, but eventually matters settled down and to-day. according to. the  majority of the importers of Canadian  cattle, the enisling conditions work io  well that if any pronounced attempt  were made to secure the removal of the*  embargo strenuous efforts- would be"  made to defeat the proposal. There  arc some, of course, who advocate the  cancellation of thc restriction, since the  cause- for its imposition cannot be  shown to exist, as it will give the Canadian . cattle breeders- advantages'over'  the Americana not noiV possessed, and  wliieh are claimed throng-1 kinship. Opinion is, however, not only divided on tliis  side of the Atlantic, but!, the question  is also viewed from different standpoints in Canada, though' li-lxe vast ma-'  jority of breeders would- advocate the*  Iree entry of cattle into cur markets...  At present- a very considerable number  of Canadian? cattle are stripped' via  United Sstatca ports,- the American exporters purchasing tlie beasts- from the  Dominion stockraisers, and' shipping  them off to Ne--" York, etc., whence they  are brought t* this country.. Tliey aro  conveyed from the ranches-to-the ship-  under bond. "JShat practice migat' be ���������interfered with ta-some extent; if,'not altogether, if Canadian cattle'were admitted free, for, shipped fronv: a Canadian port, they would, have-the option  of both the meat and-the stock-markets  on landing in- this country, and1-.'!! any  case, could be Sept any period' to suit  the market���������aw advantage -of- no little  importance. If the cattle arc admitted  t free, home breeders would at once say  that an injustice is done-to. tlieni, for,  as was tue case before the embargo  was placed upon Canadian stores:; Scottish and other stock-raisers used to  purchase the animals, and, after keeping  them for a few* months, would" forward  them to the tendon market as homebred beasts. It is a fact that the imported stockers* thrived wonderfully in  this country, and. found a ready market.  Argentina cattle are now prohibited  being landed here, excepting in carcase..:  Thc  time is thought opportune  to agitate iu favor of-freeing the eoloninl cat- '  tie.    It appears somewhat    remarkable-.,  however, that the Canadian **ncific Com?  pany has not agitated inorc-vigorouMy in-  favor   of  the  removal  of  Uie  embargo,  because  of  the   diversion     of   cattle   so.  American  routes under  existing  coudi-  tions.    Tliere are���������as in. every com*-*te*c  question���������points pro an-i con.    and the  votaries of the abolition of the existing  restrictions are able ts> make out their  case with some degree ot force.   On the  other hand, the advocates of a. eontinu- j  ance of the existing state argue that the I  market is" now a   -settled    one;'buyers j  know when to purchase and what they  are- getting; great economies are secur*.  ed .by the convenience of the Vairage s.ya*  tern," and tn the carriage of dead meat  to ffrmtlmSfe"-;destina-rioa-;���������and-lfcat-  being now so well established and understood,  no  sound  excu?o    can  be  made  for   altering    the    system.    Conditions  have certainly    arisen during   the past  few years which did not obtain prior to  the restriction period, which, it is said,  militate greatly  against the  possibility  of having free    markets    for Canadian  cattle.    The  great bulk  of the   beasts  nre  now   drawn    from    lhe  "Northwest  Provinces, where they arc of a wild mi-      ��������� v. . ture,-and, while   it  may   be  possible  to  :lovcr and hay-fed hogs topped "oil' with j transport them to this country, the  ���������run and skimuulk, pay better by far j stocking of thorn here is quite out ol  "imn anv of the own*,.; l.iised in the pen  i .tha quest ion,  owing    tn  their wildnf-i".  AN NEW SILK HAT  (he Hoys  not Bp a Little riot to Ilavi-  Joy With llio I'urcliaior.  The young man who prides himself  upon his swell and dapper appearance  had just bought a new sill: hat, and it  had been sent to the office from tho  hat store. It arrived while ho was at  luncheon, and ono of the boys receipted for it, and after the messenger  ���������was gone hauled out the prize for general inspection. It was certainly a  beauty, but the man who cannot afford  to wear a silk hat never sees any sense  fn any other person wearing ono.  So the gang got up a little plot to have  ���������joy with the sporty purchaser.  The new hat was stored away In tho  clothes closet, and tho oflice boy was  sent to the County Democracy headquarters, to borrow the worst old plug  hat that could be found in the rooms  ���������one that had been through all the  parade;- for ycars"**.ind had been kicked  from pillar to post.

"I'll' let 'em know who  they're playing* jokes on!" and he  jammed' the old hat back in the box  preparatory to going back to tbe hat  store with It; It was time to make tho  switch again", and one ol the boys  called him into tho private office a moment on something very impcra.t!veF  tvh'lle another shifted' the hats and put  the new one back in the bos.    0  Returning from tha momentai*y conference, the indignant young man tied  up tho hat box- and Btamped away to  Vic hat store.  "What do you mean:,." he demanded,  ���������slamming the box down and nervously  pulling at the string, "by sending mo  un old wreck ot a hat like���������this?" and  be pulled out the shining new tile he  bad bought a few' hours before.

The New York Herald sent a corres-  ,.-indent tlirough the southern Stateu to  investigate and report upon the employment of children in the cotton mills.  In his first article, recently -published, he  says that there arc about. 50,000 children at work in these mills, 32,000 under  fourteen years of age, 12,000 under  twelve and 5,000 under ten. They work  from GO to 72 hours a week ; earn froin  10 to f>0 cents n day ; many of them  have never been to school nnd a number  questioned when roniing out of the factories did not know their Christian name.  The correspondent finds that the nianu-  'facturcrs defend tho system, bitterly ile-  nnunce nil who oppose it, and session  after session have succeeded in killing  various bills introduced in flic Slate  Legislature with a view to restricting the  evil. The piut-nts of the children made  from 00 cents to $1.25 a day and the  manufacturers sny that, they arc com-  pi-llcrr in many cases fo hire the children  liponus*' otherwise the parents would noi  work for them, and iu other cases it if  iipcpssary in order to keep tho families  out of tl'ie workhoni-e. Thc mills pay  enormous dividends, in many cases over  1C0 per cent., nnd The Herald's correspondent thinks thnt Clio way to settle  Uio child labor problem is to slightly increase the wages of the parents, who  could then afford' to send their children  lo scliool. He snys that the people of  tlie'soutli nre now'profoundly stirred on  the'question, but need all the help thoy  can get to win the fight against tbo  powerful1, forces of tlie mill owners.

Maurice Maeterlinck has an article in  the "Fortnightly Review" on the foretelling of the future, from whieh Uiu  following passages are clipped:  The seer in question is one of the most  famous in I'aria. She claims to incarnate, in her hypnotic state, the spirit of  an unknown little girl called Julia. Having made me sit down at n. tabic that  stood between us, she begged me to tu*  toyer Julia and to speak to her gently,  as one spc.ika to a child of seven or eight  years. Thereupon her f on tines, her eyes,  hor hands, her whole body, weve for some  seconds unpleasantly convulsed; her hair  c<tn.e untied; n*.".d the expression of her  facn '-'idii'.-Ot. completely and became artless, puerile. The voice, shrill and clear.-  of u. small child, next came from that  great ripe woman's body, nnd asked with  a little lisp:  "What"do you want? Aro you wor^  ried? Is it for yourself or someone else  that you have come to see me?"  "For myself."  "Very well; will yovr help me a little 1  Lend me in thought lo the place where  your worries arc."  [ concentrated my attention on tho  project with whioh I was engrossed and  on the diflerent actors in the as yet hidden little drama. Then, gradually, after  some preliminary gropings, and without  my helping her with a word or gesture,  she really penetrated into my thotights,  read them, so to speak, as a slightly  veiled book, placed the situation of thc  scone most accurately,' recognized the  principal characters and described them  summarily, with Jiopping and childish  hut rruainily correct and precise little  touches.  "That's very good, Jttlia," I then said,  "but I know all that; what you ought to  tell mc is what is going to happen later  on."' *-        .' ..:���������������������������  "What is- going to happen, what i3 going to happen ... you want to know  all that is going to happen; but it's very  difficult."    ...  "But slil.? How will the business end?  Shall I win?"  "Yes, yes, I see; don't be afraid, 'I'ii  help you; you will be pleased."    .-   .    .'  "But the enemy of whom you told me;  the one who is resisting me and who"  wishes me ill."   ...  "No, no, he wishes you no ill; it's because of someone else ... .1 can't  see why. . . . Tie .hates him . . , .  Oh, he- hntcs him, be hates him! And  it is because you. like the other one so  much that he does not want you to do  for him what you want to do.".  What slic said' was true.  "But toll: me," I insisted, "will ho go  on to the end, will he not yield?"  "Oh,. Jo. not* fear him. . .' . 1 see,  he is ill'; he will' not live long."  "You wre' mistaken, Julia: I saw him  two days agoj. heie quite well."   '   . '  "No, noy ho is ill . . - It doesn't  .show, but he is. very HI. . . . , he must  die sooni"'   ..   .   .

I might be called  upon to fight my adversary.) "An accident,, a. murder, a revenge?" (He wns  -an. unjust and- unscrupulous man, who  had done much harm, to innny people.)

The same attack'as at the Btart then  convulsed the body, in which the little  voice had ceased; and the mask of forty  years- again covered the face of'the woman, who seemed to be waking from n  long sleep.  - 'Is it noces-rary to add that we' had  never seen each other before this meeting, and that we knew as little of one  another as though-wo had been boni on  ' diil'crcnt planets?  In so far as I rim concerned, Julia's  prophecy was realized in ftwet���������that, is  to say, although I did not triumph in respect" of the main point, the all'nir was  nevertheless arranged in a satisfactory  manner. As for thc death of .my adversary, it hns not vet occurred, and gladly  do. I dispense the future from keeping  the promise which it made me by the in-,  ���������accent mouth of-the child of an unknown world.  What I would lilielo unravel in Julia's  predictions is the unknown paH foreign  to=myself.--^Did^she^go-bey.ond^.wliat_I.  knew? I do not, think, so. When she  spoke to.nio of the fortunate' issue of  the affair, this was, upon the whole, the  issue which I anticipated, and which the  selfish-and unnvowed part of my. instinct  desired more ".keenly than the complete  triumph which another and more generous sentiment made it incumbent on me  to pursue and hopo'for, although I knew  it to bo, in ils essence, impossible. .When  she foretold the death of my adversary,  she was but revealing a secret wish of  tlint same instinct, one of those dastardly ny.d shameful wishes -which we hide  from ourselves, and .whicli never rise lo  the'surface of our thought. There would  bo no real prophecy "in this, except if,  against all expectation, against all likelihood, that death should occilr suddenly within a short lime hence. But, even  if it wero shortly lo occur, it would not,  I think, be the l'ylliian that would have  fathomed tlio future,.but I, my instinct,  my unconscious being that would have  foreseen an event wilh wnicli it was connected. It would have re.id the pages of  Time, not absolutely and as though in  n universal hook, where all that is to take  place is written, but hy mo, through mo,  In my private intuition, and would but  have translated what my unconsciousness was unable to communicate to my  thought. .  Eruption at Martinique.  A reader of the recent British "Blue-  Book" concerning the Martinique disaster has, says The New York Tribune,  been very much 'impressed by the literary force achieved by a writer represented in the volume by a narrative of  the steamer lioddam's escape Irom Uie  avalanche of lava poured inlo thc harbor. This writer seems to have realized that his maltcr was "so tcrriiie that  any attempt at literary embellishment  would ring false." Not being a literary  man, he saw that the statement of bare  facts was all that was needed,, and the  result is that his words are truly vivid  apd suggestive. There is nothing surprising about this circumstance, lt is  an old story that the best writers aro  often tho men with the least literary  experience. The man of action is notoriously abln, in ninc-cases"o;it of ten, to  describe an'event, a journey, or somo  intricate nego'liation wilh infinitely more  truth and often with more of the charm  of simplicity than we' wou"Idviind in fi  description of.the same thing writlen by  a' trained' man of letters. Jt is an old  story, hut it enforces n moral that is  ever fresh. "The man of action writc9  well, not because he is a man of action,  but because his abject is simply to say  what he' has- to say, and not to mako  an effect. - ���������'.-      ,  Gniie-to-Cnlro* ���������"FtiiUrnnil" Ailviincinc;.

He  would do his''part for half the usual  ��������� fee, and as the nursing home was under his direction he could promise that  Mrs.,,Gray would be taken for something less than the' ordinary charge.  Altogether, Winifred was made to understand at last thati she actually had  enough In hand to prevent any further  ���������delay.   What was lacking could easily  ��������� -toe paid out of the next few weeks' sal  ary, whon she received lt.

The operation would be  performed by him on the next Saturday, and Winifred was 'almost certain  that, though she was compelled to go  to Brighton at once, and was not supposed to travel to and fro, She would  be allowed to come to town for so good  and sufficient a reason.  Arrangements were mado for Dick's  release from bondage; and then Winifred placed the rest of the money, all  but five pounds (upon which she resolved to live during the .weeks of rehearsal) In their old bank to Mrs.  Gray's credit. So It would be safe  when It was needed, and presently she  would tell her mother what had been  done, assuring 'her that she had kept  plenty for herself.  It was bitterly bard to say good-bye,  with a thought in the hearts of both  of the trial that was coming���������the danger which Sir Digby Field made light  of, yet could not wholly deny. , Still,  the tide of fortune seemed to have  turned,-and the little frail woman aad  the girl were hopeful, each one striving to appear far more cheerful than  she really was. -Mrs. Gray went to the  staUon to see Winifred off, grieving  that-she should go third-class and  without a maid, aud making the girl  piomise that she would take'comfortable lodgings and write immediately.  Dick would be at heme before Saturday, and Winifred must not fret.  By the same train went several of  the actors and actresses engaged:for  Mr. Marmaduke Wantage's production,  and "Winifred recognized them from  portraits which she had seen In Fltz-  John Doulton's office. He had pointed  the photographs out to her the day before, saying that the originals would  be of her "party."

She foilhd cheap lodging's���������not in the same house with Miss  , Sinclair, for whose companionship she'  had no fancy���������lunched  on bread  and  'milk,'that her flve guineas might last-  the longer, and arrived' promptly at'  the theater.  The stage-manager and prompter  were already at. the little table "on  which lay all the parts for distribution. "The former rose with more punctiliousness than most provincial managers Show as Winifred drew near, and  a tall, slightly dissipated-looking man";  who had been talking with him and the  prompter,' advanced to meet her.  "Miss'Gray,"I think?" asked the tall  man. -"Ah, yes, I have liad 'the plea-'  sure of, seeing, you act In London. I.  am Mr. Wantage. Glad to meet you -  and to have secured you for my production."  Thereupon he proceeded tdMntrodu.-e"  the stage-manager, wliose name w.is  Jeffreys, 'and Winitred"was given her  part. By this time the company wj-*  assembling, and tho rjirl could not he'.ri  noticing how differently she was treated from the rest. It was as if "she h i.i  been a princess among peasants, aiid  she wa-3 at a loss to understand th-*  way in which she was dlstlngulshctl  since ,the fact that she was engaged tr-  play a leading part was hardly enou^l.  alone to account for It. Mr. Marmaduke Wantage, too, was a puzzle. On^t-  ho had been what is called a - "fine  man," but he looked as if he had beei  buffeted ln the battle of life. His nos.  was red; there were bags under hi.  eyes, and his flashy clothing was ostentatiously new. He gave the Impression of a person who had been down  in lha world, having come so sudde:.  Iy up again as to be almost disconcerted by his own good luck.  After an introduction or two had  been effected Winifred opened her part  -with curiosity, and began to skim ovei  the Hues before the rehearsal. Then  came a shock. She hurried from the  wings where she had been sitting to  the stage-manager, and as soon as he  had finished giving certain direction-:  to the prompter she attracted his attention.  "These read like a man's lines," she  said."  "Mazeppa was a man, you know," ho  answered.  For an Instant Winifred could not  speak, 'but by an effort she controlled  herself. ."I didn't know," she returned  "No doubt it was stupid of- me, but I  never read the poem or heard anyone  speak of it, except casually.   I���������I can't   "   She was about to say that sho  could not possibly play a -male part,  when she-remembered how completely  she was bound. "It Isn't in my line at  all." (Miss Julia Sinclair's very words,  as she realized while speaking them.)  "Mr. Wantage thinks It ln your dine,"  replied the stage-manager. "You're  'specially engaged.' I should have  thought a larger person would look it  better; but I've no doubt you'll act  charmingly." His eyes glanced over  her face and figure. "And ln your  great scene you will be perfect."  "Oh, is there a 'great scone?'" she  echoed.  "Yes. It was a big sensation once.  No reason" why it -siouldn't b������ so  again."  "And the costume?" Winifred faltered, her eyes large and anxious.  "Oh���������the costume?    You'll find that  all right. - Picturesque, you know���������an-  -cient period.   Plenty otf time to discuss  'that later.    Now,-we really must call  the flrst one."  "V^inifred felt cold all over. She had  never played a part in'm.Ue attire save  Rosalind, when she had dressed in long  leggings, the drapery of a cloak con-'  stantly. falling about the figure or  forming a background. Even that costume had caused her embarrassment  at flrst, although Rosalind, being really  a girl, "with all" a sweet, wholesome-  minded girl's modesty to shield her  even in disguise, made lt less distasteful "to an actress than genuinely aping  a man.  Yet there was nothing to be done  except go through with it. Not only  was the contract signed, but she had  accepted full salary in advance for the  week's of rehearsal. It was partly her  own fault. She ought to have thought  less of the advantage she would reap  and more about the part; then she  ���������would have asked more questions. But  even so, Winifred did not see, if she  had known the truth from the beginning, how she could have acted differ-  -ently. It was for.her mother's yery  .life���������perhaps her. brother's life, too���������  ���������and she'must not think of herself and  her own scruples. Many good, modest  women dressed ln male attire on the  stage, and no one thought the less of  them, nor did they lose their o-wn self-  respect���������Which -was even more important. ' ,  ' So Winifred read her. lines, and,  learnt her stage business, and nobody  -guessed what she was feeding. , But as  the rehearsal went on she -wondered  more and more at the choice of /'Mazeppa" as , an .attraction to open' at  pantomime' time in a town like Brighton at the beginning of the twentieth  century. It was said to be a "new  version," 'but* it was clumsy and old-  fashioned.  "What do you think of It?" asked tbe  man destined to play the tyrant, who  dooms Maaeppa to a ghr y fate. Ho  spoke ln a conftdenUal .un tone, such  as one "pro." uses to ano " er when the  eccentricities of the manacrement are to  b'e discussed. They were not "on," but  jvere waiting In the .wings, and nobody  vas near enough to hear tho .-words.     ���������  "I don't know -what" to think of it," I  responded Winifred. *  "If it has a chance lt will be-your big.  scene that will save lt." ,      ���������        i  "You mean the one .witli you?"  "No"-oh, dear no.   I mean when you'  ���������ome on strapped to the horse.   They  say  the  house  used  to  rise    to Ada  Isaacs Menken."    .  "I���������have to come on���������strapped to "a  norse?" "      ._.,  "Don't tell me you -didn't know  that?"     . '     . "  "I didn't. Oh. I can't do it. I should  be too frightened. They must leave out  that scene." ,  "I-expect they'd sooner leave out all  Speak. .There was only a gentle pressure of the'hand, and a meeting of the  eyes -which said as much as words; but  it was hard for the g!:l to go away  again, knowing that, as she had lef.  herself, so little money, she could noi  artord another visit until sho began receiving salary once moie.  To her relief, nothing further was  said about the horse for some days  Then, one moi ning, lt was announced  that the animal had arrived at Brighton, but he was to be accustomed to  the stage by his groom, who would rehearse him several,, times piivately before 'Miss Gray need try the scene.  Wouhl she care to see the creatuic  .neanwhlle?  At first she refused, for the thought  *>f what she must be prepared to do  svas hateful. But after a day or two a  kind of nervous curiosity triumphed,  and she Informed Mr. Jeffrey that she  would like to 'bo present when the others were out of the theater the next  time that the animal was rehearsed on  the stage.  So she sat in a box and watched the  queer scene .with an unpleasant fas-  .clnatlon.  The footlights were lit that the horse  might become accustomed to the effect,  and then Winifred heard the echoing  ring of hoofs on wood. The horse was  in the wings, being got ready for his  entrance. Suddenly he dashed on at a  gallop, and with a thump of the heart  she saw that a slim young man, almost  a boy, was strapped. across the creature's back, with his head hanging  down. The horse went through various  evolutions, such as rearing with his  rider and flinging up his hind legs as il  desiring to be rid of the burden, then  galloped off the stage again.  This was Mazeppa's "great" scene.  This -was what she���������Winifred Gray ���������  would be called upon to do. It seemed  .even more horrifying than her fancy  had painted it.  After that day the girl looked forward -with shuddering to"her own flrst  rehearsal with the formidable animal.  He was said to be gentle, yet she was  not reassured.  .But  at   last   the    dreaded    moment  came.    In cycling '.'bloomers"���������since a  j skirt    was    impracticable ��������� she    was  I strapped   to  the hoise's  back  as  the  groom had  been,    submitting ' to  the  loathed necessity in silence, with white,  set lips���������for she was not a. girl to in-  '. dulge in hysterical outcries. The gioom  ' ran by the horse's side at- first,  then  retired  to  the  wings,  and  before  she  ��������� realized what had happened the ordeal  ] was over for the day.  j ���������  By this time the company had been  rehearsing   for   several   weeks.     They  i had all been measuiod for. their cos-  | tumes,  which were  to bo supplied by  the management, and I*, ould be ready  in time for a dress rehearsal.        ��������� "  Brighton' was placarded- with ' huge  colored posters, and W'nified's name  was to be been on every hoarding in  large letters.-' She was "starred,'.' and,  *>f course, as Mr. Wantage pointed out,  it would do.her a great deal*of good in  the profession. To foe a "star" was, in  his opinion, a step up even from playing Lady Kitty. -     -  On the day of the dress rehearsal all  was suppressed excitement at the the-  ��������� iter. The costumes had' come, and  ', rvere very handsome; but there had  | neen one mistake, Winifred was In-  j formed. "Your 'things for the great  | scene were forgotten when the rest  ! were sent off from the.costumier's In  i :own," Mr. Wantage said; "but I.have  i -elegraphed, and- they'll be here In  I Ime for the night, without fail. If.  I inythlng's happened, they'll have to  j set to work and finish a new rlgout."  "Why, I didn't suppose I .was to have  ' mother costume    for . my   ride,"  ex-  ilalmed.Winifred.   "Surely it isn't ne-  :essary���������and won't' even be realistic?  '.Sfou see, I'm a prisoner, condemned to  -He.' .;is It likely I would have an extra  milt of clothes for the purpose?"-  "I'm afraid .we're rather (bound by  convention for .that scene," replied  "Wantage, not looking tbe girl In the  eyes. "It slipped my. mind to say anything about "dressing it, as that was  taken for -granted. Exactly the saine  co'stume has been provided for you,  and made from your m������asuTements, as  Ada Isaacs Menken -.wore'-' when she  made her great hit in the part."  Winifred * said no", more. The costumes -which had already arrived were  modest as well as magnificent, and she  must take it for granted that this other, copied from the dress of the once-  famous actress, iwould be equally satis-  "SrPASTEBOARDSrjN DTAL.  *-     ";        -if- ���������  Any Toy Can MrIco  Ono So tlint TIo Cira  Know 1 line Wllliiiul Ciillliig l'io Coolc  ANKIND first began to noto  the pashage o������ time thousands  oC years ago. before the age of  clocks, and the original think-  ;-. er noticed that when the  Ayjy* blanch of a tree cast its  shadow at a certain spot the day was  half over; and then watching the passage o������ the shadow and marking tho  places over which It passed, he was  able to divide the day fust into halves,  then Into quarters, and at last into  twelfths, thus getting the hours.

Popularity is won by a mixture of  sclf-supp'ession  and  self-assertion.  The flrst step toward learning how to  please most people is bv realizing that  they are moie interested in themselves than ln you, aud the measure of  their regard will be the degree in  which you minister to their pleasure  and self-importance.  The way to bo popular is to givo  much aud tako nothing. After all, we  ourselves like best tho friends who  caro to know details of our private experiences, so why should we act tow rd  others as though their affairs were  matters of indifference to us? Learn  to rejoice when you hear of the 'success of an acquaintance, then you will  not forget to congratulate her when  she next meets you. .Be 6orry for fl  neighbor's clouded prospects���������she will  bo gratified to find herself of conso:  quence to you.  This wordly sermon has for its  text "Be nice if you waut to be popular." There is no need to debate tho  question "Is popularity worth seeking?" for all pursue this form of tho  bubble reputation. Society wou'd dis*-  solve into fragments if we did no*.  Another essential Ingredient of-^popularity is "cheek." Timidity is thc extra spoonful of flour that spoils the  -cake. Modesty is a mistake, except  in the company of highly gifted individuals, and even they would mostly  rather be playfully than actually worshipped. Malicious gossip must bo  kept under the lock and key of the.  will. If repeated It alarms those  whom is most amuses, who think "If  Elizabeth would say such -.harp thngs  about Maud, what will she say of me?"  In conversation assist the backward  and help the adventurous to execute  clever manoeuvres; in literary discussion be as brilliant as you please, iu  short sentences, but exact the point for  praise from the rambling arguments  of others���������in fact, remember always  that a human being thinks "How can  I acquire myself well?" not "How  nice li is to meet with so much cleverness!"  - This is all give and no take?

He  .was not a genUeman, she told herself,  and there was a look and an emphasis  which she .'disliked,  though she could  not quite have explained why.  -���������   After  the    rehearsal    iMr.  Wantage  called her aside.    The gentleman who  was "backing"  him���������a great lover of  Byron���������had-a horse which he was go- '  ing to lend for-the big scene.   It bad  been bought from a circus, and was a {  clever and docile beast, and -would er- 1  rive In a few days -with Its groom, and  there must  be rehearsals.    Did Miss  Gray understand horses?  She had ridden -when a child, and  again sometimes ln the Park since she  had lived in London; that, was her sole  experien.ee. She did" hoi think that she  .was a.coward, but If she ihad known  twhat she would be required to do as  Mazeppa she would have thought twice  before taking the part.       <,  "I hope you don't accuse me of un-  fairness-in my treatment yf you?"  asked Mr., Wantage. "Every request  you have_made has been granted, and  if there is anything else "  "Only to escape from that scene, if  it were possible."  "That's the one thing that isn't possible. Everything depends upon that.  Oh, lt .won't be half as bad as you  think. And it -will be the success of  your life. All England will be talking  about you."  There was little consolation In that,  but Winifred did not say so. When she  wrote to her. mother in the evening, she  did not mention her new troubles.  When the invalid was well again,  then tho requirements of the part  might be genUy broken to her, and the  best made of them. After all, Winifred  could not obtain permission to go to  town or. Saturday, but a telegram was  waiUn-r for her aiter the "on* hours  of suspense durln*r rehearsal to say  that all was -well. "Phe operation bad  been successfully performed. On Sunday ahe did go to I/ohdon. and -was allowed to see Mrs. Gray, though not .to  factory. '    ��������� "7*T  At last the night of tho flrst performance came, and Winifred, cheered  by favorable news of her mother, set  out from her quiet lodgings for thc  theater.  "it was raining, a cold, sleety rain,  but this would not matter to the management, as Mr. Wantage had told  Winifred that every reserved seat in  the house was already sold.  As she came near to the theater she  saw that, despite the rain, a large  crowd was collected. "People-must be  walUng^for tihe pit doors to open," she  thought. As she approached on her  way to the stage entrance, however,  she found that they were not forming  a line, but wera'huddled round a poster at which.everyone was staring on  tip-toe over ench other's shoulders.  There had been no .poster I in that  place before, and Winifred wondered  vaguely -what lt could be -which apparently Interested so . many people at  once." "  She would have liked .to draw -closer  and see for herself, as she' know that,  if It were a 'iplcture, It- must represent  some sceno in the play." But it was  not good form for one of the actresses  to mingle with a crowd ln the street in  front of the theater, so she 'went on,  on the other side of the street, only  ciossing to reach the stage-door.  Miss Julia Sinclair .stood near tho  entrance, reading letters, for lt was  early still. " _ *  '  "Have you seen tho how poster?" she  asked, with a certain eagerness, he-.'  eyes or.

No   man   has worked  harder   than   he  to obtain the opportunity of   serving   the Province in its  highest  offices, and   we   are   glad  to  learn that not for lon-r is lie to occupy  a   position   tlie   honor   and   glory of  which   are   in   greater evidence than  those   more   substantial   emoluments  which should form the recompense for  liis   devoted  services   to   tbe powers  which   today   rule   British Colunibin.  In this cause has tlie President of   the  Council sacrificed his constituents,.bis  political honor ancl his political future  and common justice demands thnt the  price should be paid.  The   Honorable  \V. AV. B. Mclnnes  was   elected   to   oppose   tbe political  ling with which he is now completely  identified.     He was sent to the House  to protest against a policy of |*i anting  land subsidies and bonuses to railway  companies and   corporations, a policy  whicli   he   must   now    defend.     He  pledged   himself  to   attack   the   coal  baron whose   subservient   follower he  has since become.     Victorious at  the  polls   on   a   platform    the    principal  plank of which was Government ownership of railways, he has become the  colleague of men who propose to give  the   Fraser   river   bridge   to the first  private   company which   will   take it  off their hands.      Elected by the laboi  vote   he  did   his best to mutilate the  Workmen's Compensation Act and to  vitiate   the   act for  the protection of  trade-* unions, voted against a minimum wage of two dollats ou railways  receiving huge bonuses  from the Pro-   vince_and_in short took a strong and  pronounced stand against almost  every movement in the House for the  benefit of labor. The champion of the  rights of the E. Ai N- settlers he has  i-xpenilitiire of millions (if dollars in  keeping pace '.villi the demands on its  service, and it proposes to do more.  The addition of ii mngniflcent fleet of  Atlantic steamers to convey to Ibe  markets of Europe tin* produce of the  .iMiutry it developed, murk"! another  ���������ulvunce in its progressive policy, nnd  :ncidentally u forward move for Ciinncbi  .ind Canadians.  These me results of Conservative  faith in Canada's future. We are  usked to forget them. And whv ?  Merely to avoid iorcing discredit on  present lenders of the Liberal pmty.  When the scheme wns broached  for the construction of the CiiniuVmn  Piicific. the Li'.iei-nl party, led by Hon  Edward Blake, vainly sought to havu  i.lie line puss through American territory.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier wus one of the  loudest champions of United Stales  interests, lie declared, "Jf this con--  ii'iict is to bu judged in thr* light of  modern British ideas ar.d principle*1,  it carries with it ils warrant, and the  only duty that remains for the House  to perform is simply to reject it on the  first opportunity." As a substitute  for an all-Canndian line, he advocated  a railway to Sault Sie. Marie, thence  by Lhe Northern Pacific through foreign  territory to the Canadian West.  Sir Richard Cartwright was of.tiie  same opinion. He wns certi- in tlmt  "the confounded Pacific Railway was  likely to be the death of half n dozen  ministers before it was through with."  This was his message to lhe Canadian  Parliament and the Canadian people.  But when it came ton question of  huilding a feeder to a United States  line. Sir Richard, like Sir Wilfrid, was  enthusiastic.  During tlie coming session of Parliament both in'mistcr*- will have an  opportunity to duplicate their npposi-  i ion of 1880. Another "co.nfonuded  Pacific Railway" will again engage the  attention of all Canadian**. Will the  present leaders oppose it. as they did  ihe "Canadian Pacific"? Will "lhey  dare, to stand before the people of lhis  country and advocate the expenditme  uf money for the benefit of foreign  railroad!-? Will they again denounce  the West as a waste���������a land of hills  and lakes���������the traffic of which would  not pay for the grease of the car  wheels?  These are things not to be recalled,  now that our West is a by-woi d among  nations. Let bygones he l.ygo iet-1  Eorget Canadians! one and all. that  the men who now control the government of this country attempted to pas*  on youi inheritance to foie'gners, and  you will have removed blots of shame  from the pages of the histories of the  men who are held to possessthe brightest minds in the Liberal party.  But is that your duty? Do not the  magnificent efforts and accomplishment:- ot the Canadian Pacific, aud the  necessity for the construction of ������  second "confounded Paciflclino." speak  i'or tlie return of men who made such  things possible?

(By a Banker.)  When in auj-ry 'mood Nature vents  her wrath in varied manner. Now it  is the tornado, .\hich with -irresistible  force tears a paBsn-'e for itself through  forest or township, levelling houses to  the ground and at one stroke cutting  down long avenues of the great giants  of tho woods, Now it is nu overwhelming flood, carrying destruction and  devastation on its surging course; now  a raging storm ut sen; or a violent  outburst of electrical energy, the  dazzling forks and tongues of fire  dealing death upom whomsoever they  strike, while the detonating roar of  the rolling thunder enhances the  weird mystery nf the aerial discord.  But of all the manifestations of her  wrath, without doubt Iho most toirify-  ing and the most desolating of them  all is when 'the ever-glowing, mighty,  roaring, nearly eight thousand miles  deep, never t-uioscent, ne'.ver inactive,  pent up beneath a shell no thicker,  comparatively   than  egg.  frantic, almost irresistible energy to  burst tlie frail bonds of its piison,  pouring forth a fiery, molten flood,  rending the rocky crust which keeps  it within its appointed bounds, aud  causing the very earth itself to tremble  and quake'as if struck with terror lest  its fiery prisoner should break loose  and destroy il.  And at such times when these  roaring, thousand-mile'd flames confined within that brittle, rocky crust  gather up such overwhelming energy  and force that at length they hurst  forth in all their furyj then, indeed, do  we" realize the might of Nature's  stupendous forces. The side ot a  mountain is blown out, and ftom out  the incandescent caldron ot molten  eleinents~a great vivid cyclone of  deadly - blazing, lurid fire darts forth,  and in a second of time has spread like  a lightning gleam over the surrounding, land, striking down in. death  every living creature over, whom it  passes, leaving town and country but  a calcined smoking ruin, and causing  ���������ven the very sea itself to boil like a  seething caldron. And* now, gathering yet more energy, red hot rocks  and stones are shot up -miles high,  dealing' death ardjiestruction where-  over-they fall; vast masses of ashes  and dust are ejected ' into the upper  regions of the air; here and there the  earth opens her mouth and vomits  fire and smoke; choking sulphurous  gases overspread the country, and a  sepulchral pall of darkness, a veritable  . darkness which may be felt, hangs  threateningly over the desolation, and  veils from view " the horrors which  have been enacted.   -*���������  And ��������� when at length the gloomy  shioud has .been lifted, it is seen that  the stricken victims.of Nature's wrath  have been buried.by her hand, earth  to' earth, ashes to ashes, and the fair  facaof .the heretofore smiling landscape is but an arid expanse of smoking ashes. ������  "But"what a*"scene"will be-presented  when the tocsin sounds for the whole  earth to be burned up. Happy they  who, having lived the life of the  righteous, and having accepted the  Saviourof the world as their Redeemer  . anil   having   their   names   written in  .. hua^en, are.bcunc  liy angels safu from  '' harm, and -cau-'witness from afar.the  " ���������.fiery destruction'.!.'".

This is the way the  Sentinel pats it:  ��������� ��������� ''Interest in the approaching municipal elections is increasing daily, and  although it has not yet reached the  acute stage, the indications are that  there ..will be no lack of candidates in  the  field   by   January  12   next,   the  . nomination day. ' There is, .too, a  decided feelirg in favor of the abolition  of the ward system, and in all probability a move will be made with this  end in view within the next few days..  In order to affect the change, a  petition signed by the owners of more  than one-half in value as shown by the  last revised assessment roll, must be  presented- to the Council, asking for  the discontinuance of the ward system  and on receipt of such a petition, the  Council, must pass a by-law to that  effect. The election of the entire  Council by popular vote would do  away with the injustice worked in  compelling a property owner to vote  in the ward where he resides Irrespective of his interests in other parts of  the city.

When children,  particularly girls, between the  ages of ten and seventeen exhibit evidences of nervous disorder such as twitching of the face and  hands or extreme irritabi.'ity it is a  sure sign cither that tho school work  Is too severe or that thoy aro not living under proper hygienic conditions,  or both.  In tho majority of cases, to conquer the difficulties of arithmetic or  grammar or the Intricacies of a new  language is harder work for the child  than are for ths business or profcs-"|  slonal man his evcry-day vocations.  Hence children need constant ;care,  sympathy and encouragement.  Children should spend not less  than two hours a day in the open air,  and if possible should engage In  games requiring both skill and activity. They should not be permitted to  attend social parties or public meetings  or entertainments on an evening preceding a school day. They should  spend in sleep not less than nine and if  possible ten hours out of every twenty-  four.  The following practices should bo  prohibited as Injurious to health:  Study before partaking of food in the  morning, the rapid reading of lessons  just -before the beginning ot school  sessions, study Immediately after the  close of school before the mind and  body have been rested by play or. other suitable change or occupation, study  Immediately after eating a hearty  meal.  The children should have fixed  hours for study.  When parents find that their children, after conscientious effort, cannot  accomplish the work assigned by tha  teacher in the time specified in tho  rule they should at once communlcat**  tho fact to the principal of thc school.  and ask diminution of the tasks assigned.  Parents should never urge children  to make extra efforts to obtain promotion, nor show annoyance if they fail  to obtain promotion. What children  need for intellectual and moral progress Is systematic work. If for ar*.*  good reason the child is not promoted  or graduated at the end of the term,  he should hot be reprimanded, but encouraged to try again. Nor should  ���������parents by finding fault with cl.e  teacher weaken her influence for good.  Cigarette-smoking by- growing boys  Is dangerous alike to the physical, the  intellectual and the moral well-being.  Parents cannot be too vigilant in preventing thoir sons from using tobawo  In any form,-and particularly in th*.*  of the cigarette. .-..-������������������  HOW DO YOU STAND.

LEARNING TO COMMAND  '���������How'the':lnvl**elble������- Took':,rort   in  "In-'  ���������:���������--     J'ai'inlc.  speak to be captain!" cried Luko  Edwards, Just as soon as he put  his head round the corner of tho  Darn where the other boys wero  already assembled.  "Well, you won't be!" retorted  Tommy Green, Indignantly. "'Twan't  fair coming on us that way.    You'ro  always doing things   when we    ain't  ready, to get ahead.. You didn't think  of the company.   Willie .Jackson spoke  of it first, and risked 113 to meet hero  and this is his barn, and we're to train  ah his land; and of course he ought to  have the first chance."  '���������:���������  "Then he ought to have spoke first,"  mocked  Luke.    "Ho    didn't, so    I'm  ���������captain."  ��������� ;"But you don't know so much 'bout  training," "expostulated'���������; Tommy,   although    less ; vehemently.,    "Willie'o  brother's a soldier, and he understands  things, and���������-and: is lnt'rested."  , "Well, I guess I can walk on ahead  and give" orders and wave my sword,  ��������� can't I?!* demanded Luke, aggressively.  "That's what a captain's    for.      And  then I'm   the"  biggest, and   I   spoke  first."  "Oh, let "him be captain if he wants  to;"'   interposed    Willie,    generously.  "What's_the odds?"  "But he can't do it as well as you."  . "He   can   learn,"     smiled     Willie,  f'That's what I'm trying to do.    If I  ���������find.out anything he don't know, I can'1  ���������show him." .     v  So, in spite of a general feeling of  discontent, Luko-became captaiu, and  walked on ahead and waved his sword,  and called out sharp and contradictory  commands   which * the    twenty   boys-  tried to follow, because Willie assured  them that a soldier's flrst duty was to  obey.   But as to accepting Willie's advice, that was something'Luke   would  not do���������it was a reflection on his dignity as captain to receive advice from  the ranks. oAnd  more  than  that,, he  insisted on putting his brother in lieutenant and his two cousins second lieutenant and sergeant;  and to keep tho  peace, Willie persuaded his    companions to accept the situation.  Thus it went on until along ln October, when the town was thrown into  sudden excitement by the unexpected  arrival of ah old    resident who    had  gone' away, nnd ��������� in  twenty  years  had  risen to be a famous general. Ot course  there was a hurriedly arranged parade,  in which the prominent men and tho "  band   and   tho school   children   took  part, and In which���������to their, consternation and delight���������the Invlnclblcs were  asked to Join.

le Strenuous, by the author of W***,T

* To Get and to Hang On To," and Ine
Conceit o�� Omaha."]
It was a mild morning in April,
1010, around ten o'clock, when I, Gaston le Strenuous, ai lived at the
outskirts of the capital of Buri-
tania. I was speculating on my
chances of futuie greatness when S
observed a cloud of dust rapidly approaching. Ncaier and neaior it rolled,
nnd nearer and nearer the thunder of
hoofs resounded. At length a fiery jen-
"��et flashed into view. One glance at the
fair rider's face icvoaled to me Elizabeth
de Sautorne-Mosellc, whose image wns
destined never to fade fiom my heart.
When opposite wheie I stood tho noble
steed fell exhausted. But a few paces
behind in frantic leaps ���*i"'"d tho foim of
a, royal Bengal tiger. H sufliued.but an
instant to dismount,, and the ready
sword of my .incestos-- Hashed in-the
sunlight. The combat was strenuous.
Backward and for waul wc swayed. Finally the tawny boast giaspcd the sword
and wrenched it from my hands, when
with a last despairing ell'ort I seized him
by the throat, and, bending his head
backward, broke his neck.
Scarce had the combat teiminated and
I was resting from my labors when suddenly ns though sprung from the earth
there encircled me a troop of horse
whose badge, the famous two crossed,
sky-blue mackerel rampant, bore sufficient testimony-lo the fact that they
were the minions of him whom men.then
named wilh bated breath as the",'.'pea-
green cardinal."
"Ha! what is this?" exclaimed -the
leader, in whom-I was not at a, loss lo"
perceive thc notoiious rullian, -Charla-
trousse de la Yin Ordinaire. "A violation
^of* the edicts relative to.,the killing.-of
"Bengal tigers!    Surrender.' caititr!"
"Never," I cried, and_the attack began. They weie" fifty-three of tho most
renowned, swoidsmcu in Europe, so il.
took fully ten minutos-hefoio they were
placed hors de combat.
As my dnggci was clicking merrily
against the goiget of the list 1 accidentally x>au-,cd io note the won ied look
which wi*. spie.idmg over Uie fair face
of Mile de Siulcinc Mo->ellc Like a
flash tlie situation pioseuted itself to me
A sinnlaiity 01 featuie, form and hearing revealed that unwittingly I was
about to slav  hei brolhei in law
"S'death," I cued, "joung man, your
������life is spued "
"But not my honor, gadzooks," he answered "I had swoin to take * thee
abve." j , \
"Gramercy for thy "courtesy," and wo
were about to re-engage when thc pleading expression of my loved one's countenance determined me.
"My sword*, l'faith, I will never snr
render," I cried, breaking it across mv
knee -"But, fair youth, I follow you." "
As the iron doors of the royal prison
for inebriates clanged behind, I indeed
felt that all hope^ad departed. Thrust
into a narrow cell'half full of water and
half of air-1 began speculating on the
chances of escape. But one opportunity
presented" itself. Unbuckling my strong
leather belt, I detached the buckle, which
was soon" fashioned into a serviceable
pickaxe. Ten feet of solid granite were
soorrpierce'd,'and before my friend the
warden agam passed on his rounds 1
was swinging hy the'leather*thong over
one hundred feet of sp ice A quick drop
into the moat and I bicathed the air of
freedom    Hut not for long.        --,. , .
Cannon-balls rained around mo'as I
sped up the street. I count it no cowardice that I did not stop to pick up my
hat, which one had knocked off. ' *
, Turninc* into a nariovv street I was
congratulating myself when a noise like
thunder pealed fqrtlf. *��� Huge crack3
opened in the pavement. Tiapped at
last I had unwarily enteied upon .1
section of the city ^wliere a rapid transit
road-was being constructed Suddenly,
after a fi antic effort; to regain my footing, I fell into a yawning cavern that
opened hefoie me. , .. ,_  ,
When I awoke all_,was darkness. The
damp earth encompassad me close ahout,
but by strenuous* exci tions I filially
managed*to wriggle first one, then all
ten toes. And now began a forward
burrowing which was necessarily slow.
One, two, three, four, and five milea
were ^toilsomely, traveled within the
bowels of "the earth. At length a stone
wall-seemed to.bni fuither progress
Wrenching'away a giant bowlder, however, I', fell forward ainto a~damp ^ void
One, glance'around sufficed to1 convinco
me_that I was^in tlie duhgeon df the
palace. Had fbut exchanged-a~Scylla
for a Charybdis?
"And  so you have  a little^ baby at

Another Fad.
Not all the pretty summer young
-.-Oman's fad concein her frocks
md frills, says a London paper.
Dn the contrary, the summer
iweethcart ha.s his share of attention,
if ter a certnin fashion, and at present ho
nay consider himself as rcpiesenting a
���cally novel fad born of tins young per-
lon's clever biain:
"What do you think of this as a sur-
orise for Edwaid?'' quel ied tho hand-
lome v oung matron, as she rolled up her
ilcovei displaying a sunburned and intei esting-looking arm, which she
stretched  forth  for  closer   inspection.
"Why, it's a pictuie of Edwaid!" cx-
���laimed the thiee summer gill friends
"lathered about her on thc hotel vcian-
l:ih, and, sure enough, thero on thc
ivife's pietty arm was a Tcmarkably good
noili.ut of her lord nnd master.
"What is it?" "How did you do it?"
md "Will it come off?" weie a few of
the questions which came simultaneously
from the excited trio.
"I got that clever little Japanese artist in town to do it. lie's been woi king
at it ever so long, nnd ha3 it finished
just in time for Edward's birthday.
Won't he be surprised and pleased when
t show it lo him?"
While tho novelty appealed to tho
thieo girl fuends and each was turning
over in her mind the advisability of
copying the fad, it contained ono clement which made them hesitate. Each
in her own heart longed to try tho experiment, if only a proec33 could be
found which would make the picture last
tor a shoiler time than eternity. If
there's one thing which is absolutely, essential to the happiness of the summer
���jul, it is variety���variety in her beaux,
ns well as her bonnets���so it would nev-
ei do to stamp upon hei arm a likeness
which would withstand thc changing
seasons of time and her own heart Why
couldn't a photograph be printed on lhe
flesh in tlie same manner that fancy pillows, screens, and even dainty handkerchiefs aie decorated?
The idea stiuck her as heing immensely clever, and hor cageiness to test its
feasibility took her, the following day,
lo a piominent photographer in thc city.
"I want you to make a photogi apli of
him on my arm," was her st.ntli'ig demand, .is she exhibited to the artist the
li casuied portrait of a handsome man
in uniform. , *
"But, my dear young woman, we don't
do that sort of thing. It's quite impossible," was his mild icply.
"I'm sure it can be done," she pleaded,
"if only you'll try. I do so want to get
ahead of the other gills, and thc idea ii
all my own. I've thought it all out in
my own mind. , You see, I'm something
.of an amateur photographer myself, and
I know ' a little about ' isochroraatie
plates, hypo, and toning solutions. I
feel positive you can do.it for ine."
"Think of what might happen to you.
lror instance, there is the silver bath,,
vv hicli would certainly turn your arm
'juite black; and there���"
"Oh, but you needn't do it that way,"
-he interrupted. "Try some other. Just
s you do those delicate white porcelains and rich ivories. I must have a
pliotogiaph of him on my arm before I
;o back, and I'll give you'as many days
is you like to do it. ��� I've promiaed-my-
���clf this surprise, so please do help me,
won't you?" and . her. voioe and eye3
"pleaded her cause.'
"All light. I'm willing to make the

arm for the test.    * -
So it came about that a sweetheart, a
bevy of girls, and the whole summer
colony were amazed one day to see this
ingenious young woman wearing a fashionable elbow-sleeved froek, which disclosed to advantage the head and shoulders of her uniformed sweetheart, photographed in the sunburnt arm.
The idea was altogether too novel and
catching .to be-monopolized by one, or
even two, so, in an astonishing time, the
entire colony���that is the young women
members-of it ��� appeared "with photogi aphs transferred to their fair flesh.
While the arm remained the favorite

Borne, with tastes a trifle more barbaric,

WEST POINT STOFtli-.5.
tn.odoten ol Poor pmbt��-"Slr" John nod |
tlio len ConiiuH.H.linen."'* ,
N amusing anecdote is told of
a raw country lad who reported at West Point a few years
ago concerning the use o'f tho
word "sir," says the Army and
.. Navy Journal.    When the new
jadets report at tho academy they hrst
visit the adjutant's ollice, where they
deposit their credentials and give information concerning their parents or
guardians and their former careers.
Next they visit the treasurer's office
arid deposit what money they have
with them, and then they go to the
barracks, where they report to the
cadet officer in charge of their instruction. It is here that they roceivo
"���l-eir first taste of military discipline.
Well, this young man passed through
the preliminaries, linally reaching tho
barracks, and after several attempts
to enter the oflice of the austere lieutenant in charge he was asked by
4hat functionary what his name was,
1 "John Smith," answered the lad.
"Suppose you put 'sir' on that!"
���cried the cadet officer, forgetting for
(the moment in his assumed wrath
the equally heinous omission of tho
"Mr."
"Sir John Smith," innocentiy replied
the plebe, and supposed he had obeyed
to the letter his superior's injunction.
For the next few minutes that poor
plebe's life was a burden to him, for
all the cadets about the room at-oncc
'began "crawling*" him for his supposed attempt at facetiousness. Tho
naime "Sir John"- stuck-- to him-
throughout his entire career at the
academy, and even followed him into the army. , ., " ,'
Here is another anecdote: A yearling w'lapped In a sheet, appeared on
the post of a plebe sentinel at night.
"Halt!" shouted the plebe, "Wiie
goes there?"
"Moses and the -Ten - Command-
-oients," came the response.
The poor plebe thought there wan
something irregular, but he remem-
'bered his instructions about never allowing more than one to advance at
a time at night, so he promptly
shouted:
"Advance, one commandment to be
-recognized."
But soon the sound of voices recalled
me to myself. The speakei could - be
none other than the pea-green cardinal.

The small rubber rings that aro
used in every household with which to
eeal preserve jars may be made 'the
means of much amusement when a
'lively game is desired for the amusement of friends. First 'obtain a
smooth head of a flour or sugar barrel, and see that the pieces are all fastened together, forming a circular
board, or any smooth board about a
square foot in size will serve the purpose. - -   '       ' '��� "
Procure ten coat hooks of medium
size and secure them into the board,
and mark above* each hook its number, ranging from No. 1 to No. 10. A
iiole may be madejn the upper end
of the board, or a screw eye Inserted
*by which to hang it upon a nail in thf
-wall. --
* No. 10 Is eort of a "bullseye," and
each player having three ot the rub-
���ber rings," takes turns in throwing
_lthem_frpm a position about ten feet
away, endeavoring to "hook" as -many
on the board as possiblev A score ia
feept of the points gained liy each player, the one first getting-100 points being the winner. However, exactly 100
points must be made. . For Instance,
if a player'has 99 ho has to work for
"Hook No. 1," as any other hook
,would carry him over the mark. This
difficulty adds to the interest of th?

Love is a sublime emotion only when
it is not ridiculous. Wiilcis on the
subject and authors of novels in English are inclined to take too romantic
and sentimental a view of love. The
majority of lovo affair-; in English literature aro thoioughly foolish, and if the
stories woro continued beyond the wedding daj' they would ho snd narrative^
of disillusionment, infelicity, and antipathy. The Romeo-and-Juliet sort of
love and all fust-sight or sudden passions can end in nothing but coldnes'*
and bitteiness if thoy are given loin
Thackeray was the English wriler wlio
came nearest to setting out a sane idea
of love. He was worldly wise and knew
human nature, and the happy lovo affairs in his books are eminently directed
by common sense. Dickens, too, wa<*
human and observant, but as he was-
less cynical, he was less sound than
Thackeray in his treatment of love
Modern French wi iters go to the ex
treme of cynicism, and therefore pain!
a sort of love which is mere dirt, and it
as . false in, ita naturalism as Victor
Hugo's sort was false"in iti romanticism. Tlie love of ilarius and Cosette
in "Les Miserable-;" i-i ullerlv, sillv*. .nn
could end in nothing but sorrow for thc
, two young fools.
Sanity and common sense should have
play in lovo as in other affairs. Why
not? Lasting love must be founded on
reason. A man and woman, befure
falling into each other's arm*-, ought to
know each other well, to have been
much ^together, ^o have considered the
hcaltli1, * th'e "physique, the. "temper, "and
the" mental character of both. Their
love, during 1 it. long; life toojetlip'' y*il
have many Bliocks to stand, and it behooves it to be" robust and firmly rooted.
Before marriage a girl ought "to learn
from her mother and from; wise married womenc just what she may o\-
pect and may not expect, and a'man.
before the wedding, ought to take
counsel on the same point from"married
men. Too much reading of roimnlie
literature, coupled'with maiden ignorance of human nature,Ms likely to give
a girl expectations impossible to realize.
Parents ousjlit to look after thoii
sons and dnu-"htors',,and guard them, a'
much ai possible, from lhat sort of love

madness. To love "rightly one should
have an old head and a young heart.
Unhappily, mad young love will have
its wny. in spite of law 01 n-'ont- A-

"WELL THANK Y00."
A Granton Man is now Able to Make this Answer.
Enquiring Friends did not always
get such a Cheery Reply been use for many years Mr. Fltat-
cher suffered from Lumbago.
Granton, Onl., Oct. 13.���(Special).
���Mr John Fletcher, a well-known
farmer of this place, who" suftered for
a long time, with Lumbago and Kidney Tiouble, has dt last found a
cute.
Now, when, his friends inquire as to
lu& health, he chcculy tells them that
he is well, something which he has
not been able -to do for a long time,
till quite recently.
Mr. Fletcher tells the story of his
illness and how he was cured, as follows.
"I was troubled for a long time
with Lumbago and Kidney Trouble.
My unne was of a. very red color.
1 tried many medicines hut could get
nothing to''help me.
"I consulted thc bc��t medical doctors in Granton and St...Mary's, but
they could do nothing for me.
''At last one day a druggist -.in
Gtanlon suggested Dodd's Kidney
Pills as a cure for my Lumbago. I
purchased a box and began to" take
them right away. Thc first box helped "me and I_ kept on till at last I
was completely cured.
"I am now" as well as ever I "was
and have' not any trace of Lumbago
about me." I am - periectly sound ��� and
I thank Dodd's Kidney Pills for. it.
"I recommend them to all my
friends, and as for myself I never
intend that my house shall be without them, for I believe them to' be
thc greatest medicine in the world."
Mr. Fletcher is a man who means
every word he'says and is prepared
to substantiate the truth of every
statement luade above.
There seems to be no case of Lumbago j Backache, Kidney Trouble or
Rheumatism, that Dodd's Kidney
Pills will not cure.
