I believe that these tilings are principally chargeable to congressional legislation touching the purchase and coinage  nf .silver, bv the general government.  This legislation is embodied iu the statute  passed July II. IHIO, which was the culmination of much agitation on the subject  involved, and which may be considered  ;is a truce, after a- long struggle, between  the advocates of free silver coinage and  those intending to be more conservative.  Undoubted I y the immediate purchase  by the government nf -1.500,0(10 ounces of.  silver monthly, forced; under that statute.  Was regarded by those interested in silver  production its a certain guarantee of its  increase in price. The result, however,  has beeu entirely different; for, immediately following the spasm of n slight raise  In price, silver began to fall, after the passage of the act, and has since reached the  lowest point ever known.  ��� This disappointing result has led to a  renewed and persistent effort in the direction - of free coinage- Meanwhile, uot  only arc tho evil effects of the operation  of the present law constantly accumulating, but the result, to which its execution  must inevitably lead is becoming palpable  to all who give the least heed to financial  subjects.  I'AYIXd   .SII.VKR    (KnTII'UATKS   IX   1UII.11.  This law-provides that, in payment lor  .|(5'lKi;(ICI0 ounces of silver bullion, which  the seeretarv ��f the treasury is commanded to piii-i'hasc inoiiihly.

I'p to the l.lih day of  July, (WW, these notes hmI heeii issued in,  luiymcut of silver bullion purchased to  the amount of more than S 117,000.1 KM);  While all but a very small ipmiitity of  this bullion ivmaius uneoiiied and without  usefulness in the treasury, ninny of the  notes given in its jan-clmse have been paid  in gold;.

I'uless government bonds are to be con-  exhausted gold. only, to be again exhausted, it. is apparent that the operation  of the silver purchase law - now in force  loads in tin- direction of the entire substitution of silver for gold intbe govern-,  ment treasury and that this must be followed by ihe payment of all government  obligations in depreciated silver.  At this stage gold and silver must part  company and the government must fail in  its establishment of the policy to maintain the two metals oii a parity withoach  otlier, and be given over to tiie exclusive  use of a   currency greatly -depreciated.  According to the standard of  the  commercial world, we could no longer claim a  place among the nations of the first class.  ' could onr government claim tlie per-  maiice of its obligations, in so far as  h obligations have been imposed upon  to provide for the use of the people the  it and safest money. -  1'HHXATIUNAL AH11EK.UKNT  If. :  v of i  clai  silv,  ought, to occupy a larger plact  reucy and the currency of the world,  through a great in teruatioiial co-operation  and agreement, it is obvious .that the  United States.will not- he in a position to  gain a hearing in.favor of suclt'au arrangement so long as we are willing to  continue iu our attempt to accomplish  this result single handed.  The knowledge in business circles, among  our people, that our government cannot-  make its fiat equivalent to intrinsic value  ���cannot keep inferior money on a parity  with superior money, by its own indepen-.  dent efforts-has resulted in such a lack  of confidence at home in the stability of  currency values that capital refuses its  aid to new enter] irises, while mill inns are  actually withdrawn from the channel* of  trade and commerce lo become idle aud  unproductive in the hands of timid owners.

The  very existence of this apprehension and  tiiis lack of. confidence, however, lias  caused a menace which ought not'for a  moment to be disregarded.

AL a public meeting lield in KevelstoUe  I'or the purpose of better laying the grievances of that town before minister of tho  interior Daly. Lhe fact was disclosed chat  the Dominion government charged one  resident citi/.en $27) an acre I'or land near  Kevelstoke and another non-resident citizen only $"> tin acre for land in Llio same  town. The fact was also disclosed that  the citizen who acquired the land at $i>  jt.n acre was our own .John Andrew -Mara,  who represents Yalo-Kootenay distriet in  the Dominion parliament. Now. Mr.  Manillas a perfect right Lo acquire land  anywhere in the province, its well a.s the  right to get it as low a.s possible: but it  certainly does'not look well for Lhe Dominion government to sell land to Air.  Mara for $"> tut acre and afterwards ask  $27) an acre from another man for hind not  as eligibly situated.  Mr. .Mara, who was present tit the meeting, sttid the land referred Lo was purchased for the steamboat company, in  which lie is one of the owners, and that  "the steamboat company has done more  for Kevelstoke than any other venture."  It wa.s also disclosed at the meeting tliat  Mr. Mara had been allowed Lo purchase  100 acres in addition to the twenty-six and  that the price paid was the nominal one  of $:"5 tin acre. But, then, Mr. Mara has a  vote iu parliamontand the poor devil that  had to pay $25 an acre has not. Further  comment.is. unnecessary.  CONSUMED   BY   JEALOUSY.  [ ICaslo Examiner .">t,h.|  What reason can be given  for the false views: about  Kaslo entertained on the  coast,? What? Wore we lo  answer it we might, speak  too warmly: but briefly we  would ascribe it to false reports dictated by jealousy.  Jealousy will do great mischief when enlisted on behalf of wrong, and although  it. may hamper or hinder  right. " it cannot prevail  against it.  Iii   one   column   the  [ ICaslo Kxamiiiei- nth.|  People  coming   in   from  New   Denver  report  it as  dead as a door nail.  Kaslo   lixaininer  whines because the people of Victoria and  Vancouver cannot see Kaslo's greatness  as the Examiner would have them see it,  and in the next column prints a'-paragraph to convey the impression that a  ri val town is as dead as a door nail. Last  spring when Kaslo wa.s the only town in  southern Kootenay mentioned by the papers of Victoria and 'Vancouver, the Examiner imagined Kaslo the only town  destined to remain on the map of West  Kootenay; but now that other towns tire  being mentioned, the Examiner whines  aiid prints ill-natured paragraphs. The  truth is, Kaslo wa.s overboomed and  is at a standstill, and otlier towns  that were not boomed arehavinga:steady  growth, even in these days of depression.  The intelligent outsider can forma pretty  fair idea-of ti town from its press, and if  the intelligent people of Victoria tind  Vancouver size up Kaslo a.s a "hits been,"  Lhe idea i.s directly the result of the misleading and exaggerated statements appearing each week in the Examiner.-  I'kknidknt Clkvklani) is using Lhe  same tactics to bring about the repeal of  of Lhe Sherman bill a.s were used by emperor William of Germany, Lo secure Lhe  passage of Lhe Army bill. The latter  used every means at his command to force  the people to elect a legislative body that  would do his bidding, and the former is  using every means in his power to force a  legislative body to enact laws to his  liking. The German emperor has almost  absolute power. The American president  is aiming at absolute; power. The emperor has behind him the classes that believe in Lite divinity of kings; the president has behind him the money power  that would make slaves of Lhe masses. Of  the two. the German emperor has the  weaker support.  Til Kit K is considerable comment at Nelson because of the fact that pilots holding Hritish papers are not employed on  the steamboats doing a coasting trade in  our waters. With Lhe single exception  ol (heAinsworth,  all steamboats plying  on Kootenay lake and on the Columbia  river are in charge of American pilots.  This is hardly lair to the pilots who have  complied with the regulations prescribed  by the Dominion government, and' the  matter should be investigated by the  customs authorities, authorities that a.re  very strict in compelling everyone, except members of parliament, to observe  the customs laws.

Business   Men   and    Bankers   Stood   Shoulder  to   Shoulder.  Seattle has not had a bank or business  failure since the present financial crisis  began. Ami good, hard common sense,  together with tact tind coolness on the  part of her bankers and business men sire  the secret of her stability. Early in the  history of the depression,1 the cloud of  which wa.s seen hovering on the horizon  a year ago by people of foresight, the  Setittle bankers formed a combination.  It would have been unfair Lo have let in  any otlier bank tlmt was not in at least  fairly good condition, and it'wa.s therefore agreed that the books, accounts, cash  and collateral of every bank should be  examined by a secret committee of three  business men. " This was done and the  examiners reported that every bank in  Llio LoLal of sixteen was iu good condition.  Organization then followed with, a board  of five members. It was first of till'agreed  that no bank should receive tin account  withdrawn from another bank, and to  make that effective the two stile deposit,  companies were pledged to rent no new  boxes. It was agreed further that tin application for a loan should be made known  to every bank through tho board. No  business man was pressed, and while no  renewals were granted paper was held on  call. This worked well, tis over three  years ago the Seattle banks had a general  weeding out of objectionable customers.  Tho hist pledge of all was an agreement  to give aid in case a run began. One instance noted was that of a well-to-do  citizen who withdrew $20,000 from a certain bank, lie tried to deposit it in every  other bank in .town, but was politely refused : he tried to rent a safe deposit box  but failed, and finally, appreciating his  folly, took the money back to the first  bank. The leading business houses, following tho example, resorted to no stringent measures, but carried their affairs  ahead as easy as possible. Thus, you see,  the business tind financial men are a unit  for the protection of the credit of the  city. They are till standing' together and  til ways on the alert to 'protect one another. It is admirable, and the men who  planned it are the saviours of the city, for  in the crash many would have otherwise  gone down. The .Pitget Sound National  Bank doubled its capital two weeks ago,  and the $300,000 in new stock litis all been  taken. It is the only bank in the United  States that has done so.

"Solid as the Bank of England."  Byron N. AVhite of the Slocan Star mine  tells A pretty good story on a young friend  who recently paid him a visit. The friend  wont.from New Denver to Taeoma, tind tit  the latter place tried to cash a draft. The  Taeoma bank teller informed the young'  man that the bank on which the draft  wa.s drawn had suspended. "'Vou must  be mistaken ;-Mitcliell's btink is as solid as  the Bankof England," replied the young  man from Milwaukee. And it took tJte  bank teller some time to convince the  ���young ,man that if'ho wanted ready  -.money he must present better collateral  than a draft on asuspended bank. Finally,  he got the indorsement of a leading  business man on a draft for $100, enough  nioney to .get him to Spokane, where  money is;easier than in'Tacoina.  In this connection it might be of interest  'to'state that the "Mitchell Bank" wasone  of the old-time .'pillars of memory in  Wisconsin.    It  Avas .-chartered  in  1880. on organization by George Smith, a Scotchman  from   Aberdeen, mainly as an   insurance  company, but was also authorized to lend  .money and receive deposits, but there wa.s  a .clause that it should not do a banking  business.     Smith    sent    for    Alexander  Mitchell to come over from Aberdeen tind  help  him.   The two were a pair.   They  issued certificates of deposit from $1 upwards,-and tliese passed current; no man  ever failed  to receive coin  lor them  on  presentation, though there were at times  .���j)I,:"50(),000 of them in circulation ; and the  two cleared some $27,000 on the issue, tlmt  were   never   presented   for   redemption.  When the charter-'was five  years old  it  whs repealed, the legislators holding that  ��� the concern', was in  fact doing a banking  business, contrary to law.    But -Mitchell  denied the right of the legislature to "interfere with his business," and boldly an-  nounced that he would not stop; that the  notes of the company would continue to  be   redeemed   as'before   at  Mil wait kee,  Chicago,  St.   Louis,   Detroit,  Cincinnati,  and Galena.    They were so redeemed and  continued  to  circulate,   the   best   paper  money   then   in    the   west.      Alexander  .Mitchell is dead, but Ceorge Smith is living in London and is reported worth $-10.-  000,000.    TJie bank was called the 'Wisconsin .Fire & Marine Insurance Bank.  .* ,-  Claim They az*e 111 Treated.  Complaints are heard against tiie treatment given men at the Nelson 6c Fort  .Sheppard hospital. The men are.required  to pay $1 a month hospital fees, and the  amount is deducted from tiieir wages, no  matter the JeugtJi of time they work during a month. Putting the average number of men employed on the road at 2000  .would make the sum collected eaeli month  $2000, or say $5000 since'the work of construction commenced. This amount  should be ample to defray all the expenses  incident to running the -hospital, and as it  is contributed by the laboring men, they  should receive proper medical attendance  when sick from disease or-.suffering from  accidents. One case is given of a cart  driver having two ribs broJcen by tJie upsetting of the cart lie was driving ; but because tiie accident-happened when moving  from one camp to anotlier, the'hospital-  authorities claimed-lie was not entitled to  medical treatment. If the men are required to 'pay hospital fees. they should  receive medical attendance.' In a measure,  the contractors are not wholly blameable,  because they entrust the work to medical  men; but tliey tire to blame for en trusting  the lives of their laborers to physicians  who tire inhuman. The authorities should  see to it that the men receive the attendance for which they pay, and if the  physician in charge of the hospital near  Nelson was pulled up and heavily fined  the effect might bo salutary.

One day Aiuru I'asliM, whose palace to-  ward the west ol' Cairo is known to every  tourist in Egypt, reeeiveda visit from some  Englishmen who knew his tastes. Their  invite him to a circus  touring in India, and  arrived in Cairo. And  the I'a-'ha, requiring little persuasion in  view of the attractions detailed to him.  accompanied his visitors that night.  Xext day the Pasha's only surviving  spouse, liakiyah. who had not seen her  husband i'or twenty-four hours, called to  her presence a particular man servant.  iMurad. whom she had brought with her  from Constantinople on her lirst entrance  into the harem.  "Since the Pasha has not returned." she  said, '"you shall now relate what passed  last night. 'Wlio-were- his companions:'"  "The Englishmen whom you saw walking in the gardens, -and two others who  had not come here with them."  "And these two?"  "Were Morton,   the   Ivatib at the   English consulate, and his friend-Osman the  Yu/.bashi."  The woman's eyes  quivered   strangely,  ���find ;i dark flush suffused her lace.  "And this girl, whom they went see.  who starts up. after a lapse of twelve  years, its my rival iu every sense, what of  her?"     ���.--*.  "Thev call her Miriam."  "Well?"  "Like yourself in earlier time, the girl  is ;i snake charmer and dancer."  "This 1 knew before. Make me not impatient.    Describe her person."  "I need not do so," said the man calmly.  "Why?"  '"Because you mean to see her yourself.  You mean to judge of her face'and form,  to be a critic, of her skill, to witness tin?  impression she has made, on your husband���-and ou others; because I Iiave already arranged for you to do all this���  yourself undiscovered."  That night, indeed, Bakiyah, attended  by Murad, both carefully disguised, stood  .among the spectators attracted by the  new iirtist. The pasha's wife looked on a  woman quite fifteen years younger than  herself, distinguished by an order of  beauty which Bakiyah, with a sinking  heart, felt thatshehad never seen equaled  -a woman going through her various  feats with an ease and. grace which the  unknown observer might, indeed, have  rivaled on occasion in earlier days, but  never surpassed. Kakiyah glanced from  the performer to the onlookers. Her husband Siit far away to her right the most  prominent among a. circle of joyous and  vigorous iipplauders. A little away from  him was a fair-hnired Englishman, with a  quick-eyed, good - humored lace that  beamed with frank pleasure. Next fo him  sat a young man, handsome, with the  grave, 'dark beauty of the Orient, but  with neither its heaviness nor its elTeini-  iii((:y. He was dressed in the uniform of a  captain in the Egyptian army, which set  off admiralty his alert anrl graceful figure.  His eyes were fixed with profound absorption on the girl in the arena. And when  that girl swerved her head in his direction, which happened more than once, it,  appeared to Bakiyah that communicated  lights of intelligence gleamed in the eyes  of both. The Pasha's wife gay.ed long at  the Egyptian officer. Then she turned a-  glance upon her servant, who seemed fo  divine her every movement, and tliey  both arose without waiting for the end (if  the performance and wont away.  For six days Jlakiyah remained secluded  in her apartments, untroubled by tho conversation of her husband, and speaking to  no one else. Jt seemed as if she would no  more care to look upon the light of day.  J hardly did she betray a- sign of life.

Next morning he once more came suddenly upon her.  "Your husband will be here within an  hour," he said with au abruptness that  was habitual to him.  " You have seen the snake dealer?" she  exclaimed in an agony of impatience.  "And I have chosen tho snake."  "Due that will serve its purpose?"  "It has e;iten nothing for many days,  I tis not au animal. It is an incarnation  of fierceness, voracity, and slaughter."  "It is large and strong?"  "I will not say that it-could crush one  of the blocks of the great Pyramid to  powder in its-embrace." answered Murad.  with a-grim smile: and yet I should not  like to be responsible for the safety of the  mightiest elephant that could be opposed  to it."  "And now, my husband. These many  nights he has been dotibtlessat the circus?"  "Yes."  ''This doomed creature, has  usual following of spectators."  "All that you are 'interested  you know the Pasha's object-  now."  '���What i.s it?"  "Shall 1 in (lew  She brought   !  face near to his.  "If there be iu it that which should  grive me," she said, "do not'spare me. If  there be wrong or humiliation threatened  to me I have one follower at least who  will chance the worst to see me avenged."  "Be sure of that." rejoined the servant,  with but.-t slight increase of resolution iu  his characteristically firm tones.  "Say, then,   why  is my husband com-  II Ml"'J"  "    11 "  "To tell you that before a week is gone  by he means to marry this performer."  said the man, leaving her while he spoke  with tho suddenness with which be had  entered.  It wa.s J ess than au hour later that Ha k i-  yah. radiant with smiles, prodigal of the  tenderest caresses, received her husband.  He broached to her, somewlmt hesitatingly, the project named by Murad. She  laughed away his doubts'and welcomed  with delight Miriam's proposed entrance  into the harem���--"one trained like herself,  with tastes and accomplishments like her  own."  "And. indeed, ya asadi!" she continued.  "I have one boon to crave of you."  "What is that?"  "You will mock iit me."  "No: do not fear me."  "Ya nuihbubn I know you will think  me most foolish."  "Name this boon."  "Why. then, ya sidi! ya Janim! before  this my sister wife comes here I should  wish to ha ve an open display of skill between her and me."  "What?"  "My lion, darling, be not angry. Ah!  tint t is better yes, laugh. My lord master,  I have the weak vanity of my sex. It has  always been a joy to me that hy my iirl-  dress as a public performer I found the  way'to your heart. It i.s true, believe me.  And it gives me sot row, my soul, that you  should think another's power superior to  mine."  " You are a child still.  "I   am   a   child   still,  echoed gayly.  ���'Therefore, (), my father, indulge my  whim iu this, Order an entertainment in  which she and I may act together, performing as dancers and snake charmers;  then decide whether I have lost all my  skill. I desire no victory over the beautiful Miriam. I only wish you to do justice  to me,"  He thought to put away her fantastic  idea, by telling her that if her claims to  recognition were lo be of value Ihe sug  gested rivalry must take place before numbers of spectators, and that lit; could not  compromise her position a.s his wife by  letting herappoar unveiled in public.  "The entertainment could bike place in  the nalaco precincts, and 1 should wear a-  mask." she replied.  He struggled on with more arguments.  Hut she merrily parried them all. > Then  finding her smilingly immovable, he said,  half laughingly, half angrily: "Doas you  will."  She bowed her head. Then as ho turned  away she looked up. and her lace was  luminous with tho radiance of a demoniac:  triumph,  Osniiin the yttzbashi soon know of  Ainru's project to wed Miriam. And  though the knowledge filled him with  anxiety and gloom, he scorned to yield to  despair. Ho had seen Miriam many times  in private. Me knew her worth, lie  knew her feelings toward himself; and for  her sake he was prepared to battle against  heaviest odds.  Osman wa.s tho handsomest officer in  the Egyptian army. He was intelligent,  rarely accomplished, aud few men of his  years equaled him I'or coolness and fertility of resource in times of trial.  He was one day walking near the  palace of Amru when a- note was thrust  into his hand and a. hurried whisper went  by:    '"Ta'al ina-'i."  Osman opened tho notes, which contained a few lines in Arabic, with emphatic mention of one name. ITo glanced  forward in search of the man who bade  him follow, and recognized one of the  servants of Amru; and to Amru's palace  Osman proceeded. Within the threshold  he encountered .Murad, who conducted  him in silence to a room adjoining the  harem iind left him. In a moment a curtain wa.s withdrawn from the end of the  room and Hakiyah stood unveiled, young-  looking, beautiful, before him.  "You have come." she'.said in tones  thrilling with au almost painful exultation.  "I it in here at your service, liiadame.  Why have you sent for me?"  " You know the fate in store for pretty  M iriani?  " I hit ve heanl ��� "  " For the woman beloved by you?"  "Something .1 have heard."'  "And who is willing   to forget you. to  betrav you, to abandon you lightly?"  ���".Wo had better not discuss this."  "Ah! she cried, "if  you cared to bike  revenge, a fair way'.might be pointed out  to you,"  is    an     unprofitable'   theme,  Again, why have you sent for-  murmured  le ;t serpent  she escaped  "This  madamc  ya   abuva !" si  Why have I sent for you?" she repealed slowly. They rem'ained silent, looking  at each r>ther~-he calm, gentle,-sauve in  bearing; she with eyes abla/.e. witli  bosom heaving, with frame quivering  from head to foot. And Osman, though  no coxcomb, guessed instantly the kind of  revenge-that she proposed-to him.  'She .threw up her arms, and for live  whole minutes did slit; pour forth a-'torrent of exclamations, avowals, prayers  expressive of the most frantic love. And  over the stormy stream of her language  gleamed and shifted and rang the lights,  the colors, the harmonies.of an unearthly  eloquence. Osinan's lirst impulse (if  amazement and perplexity had been repressed before .the woman had uttered  twenty words, and when her outburst  Wiis ended he had little difficulty in assuming a kindly, soothing tone which,  while dispelling uneasiness ou her part,  fended to bring her back to comparative  reason. Yet. though he felt that it would  be utter madness to give theslightestevidence of the scorn within him, he resolved to cut short the interview without  delay.  "It will not be well for nie to remain  here long," he said.  ���'There can be no danger   I'or you." she  answered,   an  ominous   lire gathering in  her eyes.    "Though    he  surprised   us   in  this moment, there would  be deadly wot-  to him if he attempted  in.  "Still. I must leave you.  " You arc invited to the  here tomorrow night?"  " Yes."  " I f you   cared  to move  your own behalf, you  and   I  need to leave each other more  fancies to   the  most despotic  there is nothing you can deem beyoiu  will  fo perform.

"Yes."  "And when yon come it will be for the  purpose of our never again being separated. I shall have all prepared. Within  thirty-six hours weshall depart together.  All my' jewels I shall take with inc.  They would more than serve;as the; ransom  of it sultan. We shall go to climes where  we never shall be traced. With my riches  I shall make your life such that yot't would  not need to envy the most extravagant of  pleasure seekers. And now, ya liainnnii !"  she continued with a sudden access of  sweetness in voice iind look, "where do  you go tonight?"  "I   have no thought of  moving out of  doors,"  "Not to the circus?"  "No," he answered quickly.  Ijiry to you."  i entertainment  but  slightly in  might not  Tune your  litch. 'and  ' mv  I'o'r  She looked full at him. For little more  than a. second her mouth .became drawn  iind haggard.    Then she smiled again.  "I shall no longer kejcp you. Con iti hy  this door. You shall not need to be conducted by my servant."  ' She. brought him through the curtained  aperture, by which she had entered, it  opened on two passages, one dark, circuitous, leading to the; gardens, a.nd thence  Lo the high road, the other lea'ding fo the  innermost chambers of the harem.  " Hcmeiubcr tomorrow night."she whispered, and left him.  , lie wenl, down the winding corridor.  He thought he. heard the voice of Amru  himself coming from the garden. He  drew back and stealthily crept into the  adjacent passage. lie moved into the  shadow of a doorway. There, indeed, he  heard two voices. They were the voices  of .Murad and Hakfyah."  "There is   risk   oi'   failure."  the lady.  ''No.    She will never liani  after tomorrow night.  And i  this lirst entanglement, her destruction is  iissured by another."  "How?"  "Mark me. This girl has been known to  declare that.she will either kill, herself or  kill -Amru rather than marry him. Need I  remind you that it is your custom Lo mix  each night a draught for the pasha?  ��� Whal better means of disarming' the distrust of the girl iind of proving your humility to Amru than by deputing your  cherished function to Miriam? Tomorrow  night let her mix the think. I shall take  it from her behind the scenes. I shall  convey it to Amru. And if, after the cup  has passed through my hands, the pasha  survives the drinking of its contents two  minute's, I give you iree power over my  own life."  "You will not shrink from this?"  "Have you known nie in  times past to  shrink from anything, however chirk and  desperate?"  "You are faithful, Murad."  "1 think so. When danger comes to  you, I shall share it. When the moment  of your death is at hand, the J-cnelJ of  mine also shall have .sounded. To conclude, then, should she elude the embraces  of tho bremondous playfellow we design  for her. she is confronted with a fatal alternative. The drink prepared by her  hands will destroy Amru. She will be arrested. Her previous declaration will  stand forth against her to prove that she;  is a deliberate assassin. Sim shall die.  and thus again are you freed from both  your wrongers."  "You attend on me with my serpents?"  "Yes."  '��� Her own father is her attendant."  "I  shall circumvent   him.    I shall contrive  to  divert  his  attention i'or  a  few  seconds.    In   those   few  seconds the  serpents can be changed."  Osman heard no more, lie stole away  witli ghastly face and disordered steps,  and ;it length departed unseen. [Before  evening he had interviews with Miriam  iind her lather. And he did not sleep that  night.  The evening of the entertainment came  on. At; the end of the great garden of  Ainru's house; was a scrooned-ofl platform  in front of which the spectators were congregated in-a crescent. The screen was  thrust ���-apart, and ten glass cases with  bi-ii'/.en fittings were seen ranged five on  each side of the stage. _ There was the  sound of a gong from behind the platform,  find Miriam ascended. She was covered  with golden armlets, aud bracelets and  necklets. Her father, a tall,-strong man,,  who had entered behind her, raised the  lids of the cases to the left. And oneafter  another the silent, glistening snakes came  forth and swarmed about the beautiful  girl. The stage was lit up by the electric;  light. Miriam was; accompanied by a  weird, barbaric.strangely^seductive music.  The small serpents glided amorously'  around her body and arms and neck, iind  curled above her head in marvelous convolutions yet-never disturbing .the* adornments, which so much resembled themselves���while she executed a wondrous  ethereal dance. It was -it- rare spectacle,  rarer still from the almost overwhelming  grandeur of its' environment. The girl,  with her superb facca-nd figurcaud limbs,  witli her great black eyes outda/./.litig the  blaze of gems and glittering serpents and  silver lights of wliich she was the center;  tiie Mower beds with their throng of  blooms folded in gorgeous .slumber on <dl  sides: the expanded heaven aflame with  innumerable stars: the moon rolling  streams of pale splendor on the immortal  pyramids toward the west; the fiery iind  sombre desert stretching into the immeasurable distance beyond���these were surroundings which few spectators could  have regarded without a- certain souse of  awe.    .Miriam disappeared.  And now there entered a woman wearing ii crimson mask. The electric light had  been gradually lowered with her advent,  but the astounding wealth of diamonds  and sapphires and rubies worn by her  seemed to supersede the necessity of  other light. With her every movement  a many-colored fire seemed to kindle and  break out all over her and to grow more  startling and ghostly from the framing of  the; darkened platform. This woman performed, in the opinion of many, with a  skill and grace quite equal to Miriam's.  The pasha, at least, seemed to.think so:  for-he sent a special message; to her bo-  hind the scones, whence she came, heavily  veiled, fo receive what appeared to be his  congratulations. And during this interlude the screen was lowered.  On to the platform thus concealed Miriam's father and Murad now came. Tliey  removed the casus of small snakes. Them  they rolled up with dilliculty each a case  thrice as large as any one yet seen. Murad moved his case to the right: Miriam's  father his to the left: and the latter assistant, having done his work, went unconcernedly away. Murad was left a lone,  lie looked' on nil sides. No one was in  view, lie returned fo the cases, half lifted,  half rolled that ou the left across to the  right, that on the right to the left: then  he quitted I he plat form, still with a complete absence of noise, and disappeared.  The next moment, a man rose from amid  some drapery behind (hostage, lb; crept  over to where stood the case to the loft.  and, looking info it. started. Then lie  re transposed the cases with a promptitude  ami .senary not inferior to Murad's; and  in his turn  vanished.  And now Miriam, acting by the instruct/ion of the masked woman', had mixed  the Pasha's drink and had'-handed it to  Murad. Osman. who had previously left  his place near Amru, reappeared from behind the stage, and resumed his chair.  And the screen was withdrawn.  It had been intimated that Miriam and  her-mysterious rival, with boa constrictors of unusual size around them, would  perform a novel dance. Once more a  strange, mournful, ineffably sweet music  penetrated the ear. and Miriam ami the  woman with the crimson mask mounted  the platform togel her.  Hen; Amru called by a sign for his  draught. ' Murad approached with a goblet. Osman calmly arose and whispered  to (he Pasha. Amru stared at the captain, iind. bending his eyes on Murad.  commanded him to taste the drink first.  Tho servant looked at Amru: thou he  look cm I at the stage. He starled violently.  His eyes dilated. Without hesitation lie  raised the goblet to his lips, drained its  contents to the last drop, and sank in convulsions to the ground.  Meanwhile, the serpent of Miriam had  arisen from its ease and had coiled gently  around her. In the same moment the  woman with the crimson mask had lifted  the lid of her case, and an enormous boa  had immediately darted up. The disguised performer staggered hack but the  serpent shot forward its neck and rushed  with lightning.rupitlityarouud her. There  went up from her a heart-rending cry  which was instantly '.smothered in feeble  groans and gasps. For some seconds the-  spectators remained silent, motionless,  appalled. Then with yells of rago they  arose in a body and swept onto the platform, With a single blow from the sword  of Amru tho serpent's head was severed.  It was hacked and gashed with countless  weapons, and fell to the floor in a hundred  writhing pieces.  Bufcits work wa.s done. The limbs and  ribs of the artist in tho crimson mask had  cracked and crushed into utter shapeless-  ness in tho folds of the snake. One of the  guests tore away the; mask, and through  all the distortion causod by the horrible  torture, knew the face of liakiyah.  The bystanders, iu presence.of a ciil-  amity where condolence would have  almost seemed a mockery, departed in  silence. Osman and Miriam wont away  together, and Amru saw this without regret.  Ho questioned .Miriam's father and his  own servants, ancl elicited enough to desire no further knowledge.  Toward.midnight he went back to the  platform alone. Hakiyali still lay there.  Some stains of blood had boon washeel  from her lips by gentle hands. The signs  of agony had passed away. Iler beauty  had come hack. And she; gazed with lustreless eyes up to heaven in all the disastrous majesty of death,  ILVER KING  HOTEL  John Johnson, Proprietor  Extensive  Improvements  Now Completed.
