What might have proved a very serious 
accident occurred at an early hour last 
Friday morning. he Citizens” Band having 
fulfilled an engagement at the Belleville fair 
on Thursday were returning home to Dege- 
ronto in one of Thomas Gault’s rigs, They 
were driving aloag in the darkness when 

suddenly the whole party, with one solitary | formed their task admirably. 
exception, were hurled from their seats and, Geel attendance, te 

with their valuable instruments, found 
themselves struggling in a confused mass in 
a deep ditch. It appears that the county 
officials had been repairing the culvert at 
the foot of the hill near James Maracle’s, 
A deep excavation had been made and the 
earth piled up, but with a negligence 
criminal in the extreme the workmen when 
night came departed leaving the work 
unfinished but without a lantern or anything 
else to warn the traveller of his danger. 
The night being dark the band had driven 
into the big ditch thus excavated ; the horses 
were thrown down to one side and seriously 
injured, while the rig also was much 
damaged, Several of the members of the 
band, and more especially Mr, C. Macdonald, 
sustained severe bruises and other injuries, 
instruments were smashed, and it was little 
short of a miracle thas some of the men were 
not killed. The members of the band 
aroused Mr. Maracle to see the real condition 
of things and also came to town and got 
several citizens to go out and see the danger- 
ous state in which the road had been left. 
Mr. C. Macdonald, who was severely shaken 
up and whose valuable musical instrument 
was broken, has instructed his solicitor in 
Belleville to proceed against the county 
ofliciafs for damages, and, no doubt, the 
other members of the Citizen's Band, and 
Mr. Gault will take similar action, he 
council will be mulcted in a nice sum for 
damagesin connection with this affair, It 
seems that Messrs, Lenderoth, O'Connor and 
H. B, Rathbun came'within an ace of finding 
themselves in the same predicament as the 
Band but escaped by the sagacity of their

Threshing has been occupying the attention 
ofthe farmers in this vicinity for the past ten 
days, as Mr. Spencer, the renowned thresher, 
has been through here with his steam thresher. 
He kept up his Previous record by threshing 
one day last week for Mr, Wm. Jamieson one 
thousand bushels of oats at the rate of two 
bushels a minute. If anybody cap beat that 
we would like to hear from them 

Mrs. Dayid Mitchell, of Missoula, Montana, 
and Mrs, Gilbert, of Belleville, were the 
guests of Mrs. James Cronk last Saturday and 


Last Lord’s day was devoted to the review 
of the lessons of the past quarter in the 
ditferent Sabbath schools of the town. The 
exercises in the Methodist Sabbath School 
were on an elaborate scale and of a 
Very interesting character, The work had 
been assigned to the lady teachers who per- 
; bis. was a 
achers and pupils 
e number of 340 being present Hi hota 
occasion, Mrs. A, Campbell, of the Parson. 
age, presided in the capacity of temporary 
superintendent of the school. The pro- 
Roars opened with the hymn ‘*Pasy Me 
ot, O Gentle Saviour” sung by the whole 
school, after which Mrs, Catnpbell led ina 
prayer of great spiritual fervour. A number 
of scriptural quotations were then given and 
the school again united in singing ‘Work 
for the Night is Coming.” Mrs, Campbell 
after some introductory remarks then pro- 
ceeded to a review of the first two lessons of 
the quarter, The other ladies who took 
part in the review were Mrs. J. E. Richard- 
son, Miss Porter, Mrs. Baldwin, Mrs. 
Haight, and Miss Scott. Mrs, B. W. Wash- 
burn gave some object lessons to the infant 
classes by means of a blackboard containing 
some elaborate drawings which conveyed 
easily grasped and important lessons. A!l 
the ladies performed their parts admirably 
and it was evident that careful study and 
analysis of the different lessons had char- 
acterized the work of the school during the 
previous quarter. The review exercises 
were varied by musical pieces given by the 
girls’ classes and readings of a propriate 
selections by Mrs.l.C. Fraser ren Mrs. R. 
E. Northmore, At the close of the Review 
Miss Wartman submitted the regular 
easterly report which showed that durin 
he term 3,964 verses had been learned an 
$37.31 collected, an excellent showing when 
it is remembered that the past quarter 
embraced the vacation season when so many 
teachers and pupils of the school are aWay 
from home. During the past three quarters 
the verses learned were as follows, Ist, 
7,562 ; 2nd, 6,470; 3rd, 3,964 ; total 17,996. 
The collections during the same period were : 
Ist, $40,84 = 2nd, $41.95: 3rd, $37.31 5 total 
$120.10. To this amount must be added 
proceeds of entertainment in the sprin| 
$28.00 and excursion $38.95, making a peed 
total of receipts thus far of $187.05, figures 
which Bisel more eloquently than words. 
Although the exercises were continued 
rather too long, the interest was sustained 
throughout. The exercises from beginning 
to end were conducted by the ladies, the 
pastor and regular superintendent being 
relegated to a back seat for the time being.

dairy has its quotum of 

Nearly every s 
‘ 'y cow in the land is 

kicking cows, and every land { 
liable to sawiteh her tail across a milker’s 
face during fly time. The human irritation 
aroused thereby rebuts on the herd, to its 
positive injury. There are two classes of 
kicking cows—-those habitually inclined that 
way, like a balky horse, and those that only 
use their rear hoofs in an offensive manner 
to resont fancied or real provocation, 
Nothing-but the gentlest and kindest treat 
ment should rule in the dairy ; 60, to cure & 
cow of this disagreeable habit, a brusque 
manner should be avoided, ‘Yo milk an 
inveterate kicker, treat her as you would a 
heifer, Give her no chance whatever to use 
her heels, Put a broad strap around her 
hind legs over the gambrels, and, drawing 
them snugly together, buckle it tight, 
Place her in a stanchion next to the wall, 
and from a ring in the latter let o long strap 
depend, which, after passing around her 
right flank, draw taut to the stanchion 
braces near her head, The cow is then 
practically helpless so far as any vicious 
manifestations are concerned. Sit down 
quietly to milk her, and speak soothiayly 
and reassuringly’ If the cow struggles to 
free heeselt, calm her fears by a gentle pat 
of the }and and a persuasive tone of yolve. 
Milk her in the same restraint day after 
day, and in a few weeks or months she cau 
be cured of kicking. The meekest cows 
sometimes temporarily contract the habit of 
kicking in defense of abuse from some 
senseless milker. Treat them impussionately 
and be perfectly indifferent to their tendency 
to be light heeled. In a very short time 
they will be permanently cured, If cows 
sWitch their caudal appendages in your face 
in an attempt to brush off flies, don’t 
amputate the otlending members, _as some 
do, but affix to the side of the milking stool 
a short strip of tough wood, divided by a 
spring slit, after the manner of a strictured 
clothes-pin, Have the opening of the slit 
turned backward, and into it ; when sitting 
down to milk, draw the brush of the cow’s 
tail. Cow’s tails should never be cut: off, as 
it is a wicked, brutal custom, depriving the 
animal of its means of self-defense aguinst 
insects. Humanity and kindness go as far 
making a dairy profitable as nutritious food.

Have you ever, at house cleaning time, 
coming to the bureau drawers, thought thus: 
“Til let them go until some other time; 
they don’t show,”—leaving the contents of 
those drawers in the same chuotic state? 
Let me tell you how to do the next time: 
Before you commence the regular Sleanligs 
put the drawers and boxes all inorder, If 
the chambers are cold, take your work to 
the kitchen or sitting-room ; it is easy to 
remove a drawer from its place. Put your 
best gloves in one box, the worn ones in 
another; the same with collars, laces and 
ribbons. Each box should be labeled plain- 
ly, then you will know at a glance what the 
contents are. Following this method of 
“putting to rights,” you will be surprised to 
see how easily the dreaded cleaning can be 
managed, Men's colored cotton shirts make 
excellent wash cloths for cleaning wood: 
work. When considered too badly worn for 
other use, they should be laid aside for this 
purpose. Wo not try to clean more than one 
room ata time, for it is very wearisome to 

-haye the whole house in disorder. —A merican 
Agriculturist for October, 


Soap has its attractive side, which ie al- 
Ways its clean side. A dirty piece of soap 
ora dirty soap-dish is repulsive, and one 
naturally shrinks from ablutions which are 
to be performed with such aids, A certain 
habit of observation (which is one of my 
failings) has sonvinced me that the soap 
question, unlike ‘Is marriage a failure ?,” is 
ove which has not forced itself to any extent 
upon the minds of the people. It may seem 
like carrying estheticism a little too far, to 
wish to reforu the soap-dish at the kitchen 
sink, but this is just where it is most im- 
portant to begin. Have two tin or granite 

anging soap-dishes, with holes in the 
bottom to let off the water, so that y our 
soap is not always of the consistency of a 
jellyfish. In one of these keep laundry soap 
for scrubbing, and like purposes; in the 
other a piece of Castile soup. ‘Themen who 
work in the fields come home with hands 
roughened, and often wounded, by their 
toil, and it is simple cruelty to force them to

heirloom, which is now the property of their

is possessed of unusual interest not only on 
account of its age, but its a sociation with 
events, religious and political, involved in 
the histories, of at least four countries in 
Europe and America, It is a round pewter 
platter of solid metal, about sixteen inches 
in breadth, weighing over five pounds, in a 
good state of preservation, und is the 
remaining piece of a sett of dishes of the 
same material, and although when compared 
with the productions of the present day, it 
appears quite primitive, yet in its early 
days it represented the art and fashiou of 
the time.

in 1704 won from Louis Fourteenti: of France

Home Mixed Pertillxers—The Advantas 

Claimed for Home Mixing—T 
of Ready Made 
Willing to Handle the Raw Materials. 

Mixtures for Those Not 

At the Connecticut agrienitural ex- 
periment station an analysis has been 
made of all the samples of home mixed 
fexfili sent to the station this year. 
A bulletin recently rece l gives these 
analyses, with such facts as could be 
gained regarding their cost, etc. The 
average cost of materials for the f 
izers referred to in this bulletin is $ 
per ton delivered at the purchase 
freight station. Two dollars will fully 
cover the cost of screening and mixi 
this figure being more than the estimate 
of those who have done the work, At 
the highest estimate, therefore, the aver- 
age cost of these home mixed fertilizers 
has been $35,798 per ton, The ave: 
valuation decided by the station's analy 
83 per ton, In no case 
on less than the cost of 

sis has been § 
was the valu 
the chemicals mixed. 

The advantages claimed for home mix- 
ing, in this bulletin, are: 1. Each in- 
gredient can be separately examined by 
the purchaser, and, if necessary, sent to 
the experiment station for analysis. The 

detection of inferior forms of nitrogen or 

phosphoric acid is easier and more cer 
tain in a single article than in a mixture, 
2. An intelligent farmer by home mix- 
ing is better able than any one else can 
be to adapt the composition of his fertil- 
izers to the special requirements of his 
land as well as of his crop, 8, It is 
claimed that the same quantity and qual- 
ity of plant food costs much less in home 
mixtu than in ready made mixtures, 
because the cash purchaser of fertilizer 
chemicals deals directly with the im- 
porter or manufacturer, 

Tt will be seen from the foregoing that 
at the Connecticut station the expediency 
of home mixing, in many , is be- 
lieved in. There is no question that 
mixtures of raw imuterials can be and 
are annually made on the farm which 
are uniform in quality, fine and dry, and 
equal to the ready made fertilizers, The 
economy of home mixing depends, of 
course, on the prices which the sellers of 
mixed goods are willing to take and on 
the cost of fertilizing chemicals deliver- 
edas near the farm as the mixed goods 
ean be bought. Each individual farmer, 
concludes the bulletin, ought to be the 
best judge of the economy of home

is the mother of the whole colony, : 
while she is called a queen, she is really

maternity.s The workers gather the 
honey, construct the comb, secrete the

provided with stings, while the drones 
are not, In shape the queen resembles 
the worker more than the drone, being 
longer than either. The drones are the 
males; their bodies are large and c!ymss, 
and their buzzing, when on the wing, is 
loud and different from that of the 
workers, The drones are only valuable 
from the fact that they are males and 
are thus necessary in the process of re- 
productiom of the race, A drone and 
the queen are the parents of the entire 
including virgin queens, work- 
ers and drones, The workers are all 
females, undeveloped, and rarely laying 
eggs, but are nevertheless good nurses 
for the brood of the queen mother, 
Practically the workers dominate the 
hive, As stated by Mr. N. W. McLain ina 
report to Dr, Riley, United States ento- 
mologist, continued observation and ex- 
periments furnish corroborative evidence 
of the theory thatit is the prerogative of 
the worker bees to determine the degree 
of development and dominate the func- 
tions of the drones, as they determine 
the kind of degree of instinct and organ- 
ism, and dominate the functions of the 
queen. The volition of the queen deter- 
mines the sex of every one of her de- 
scendants; but the life of every individ- 
ual, as wellas the modifications in or- 


ganism and _ instinct, depends upon 
and receives its correction from the 
worker bees, whose unerring  pre- 

mixing in his particular case, as well as 
of the formulas which are best adapted 
to his soil and crops. 

The report quoted from is certainly 
correct in the statement that intelligent 
farmers who understand the require- 
ments of their own soils and crops can, 
in many instances, save money by mix- 
ing at home the crude materials. But, 
on the other hand, there are a large 
number of farmers who do not know 
what their land requires, and who can- 
not or will not spend time and money in 

experimenting. to find ont. Vor this 
class the ready made mixtures, espe- 
y the “complete” and ‘spe ” for- 

bearing trustworthy brands, are 
investment. Tho ready made 
ures also mect the requirements of 
those who are not willing to give the 
necessary time and labor to the handling 
and mixing of the raw materials. : 

Utility of Sheep on the Farm. 

Some ono is trying to dispel the pleas- 
ant faith people have long enjoyed in 
regard to sheep improving a pasture or 
farm. Tho statement that sheep must 
eat the same as other stock and that the 
substance wluch goes to make up the 
wool and c: is lost to the soil is true 
and evident, but there are many points 
of dissimilarity between sheep and cattle 
in their feeding inand effect upon a y 
ture. With a small daily ration of erdin 
sheep will thrive ina bushy pasture where 
there is very little t other stock would 
eat, and will kill cutthe weeds andbasties 
at the same time; andif they do nod real. 
ly enrich the soil on the whole, they will 
enrich the poorest spotsof it and willadd 
to the valuo of the pasture by the value 
of the labor it would take to kill out the 
weeds and bushes and cover the surface 
with fine grasse We have seen a field 
which had been used asa pasture for 

colts and calves till about one-third of it 
Was covered with golden rod and blacl- 

Vines changed to a fine 
in three 

8s by putting ina few 
teep than it woutd keep in good 
condition, and giving them extra food to 
make up the Geficiency, And we know 
that there ave thousands of sexes of 
rough pasture in New England growing 
up to bushes, where the rocks are 0 
thick to allow cutting the bushes or 
plowing the land, that might be made 
into good dairy pastures in the same way.

The Avnual tings of a Tree, 

In a recent work by Professor Hartic 
itis stated that a count of the annual 
rings of atree when cut three or four 
fect from the ground nlay not give the 

mrate age of the tre Where trees 

»crowded in & foyest and have dey 
oped feeble crowns the greats annual 
increment is just below the er 1, apd 
it liminishes  y¢ larly downward 
Whien the leaf aren is not sufficient ti 
ford food material to provide fox 

science forbids the rearing or main- 
taining of individuals for whose ser- 
vices there exists no present or prospect- 
ive demand. As the queen must be boun- 
tifully supplied with egg food before the 
egg cells begin to germinate and mature 
in the ovaries, so the drone must be well 
supplied with that special food suited 
to him, the giving and withholding of 
which is instinctively determined by the 
worker bees, as the present and pros- 
pective condition of the colony requires. 

Temperature for Churning. 

The temperature at which cream should 
be churned yaries according to the tem- 
perature of the air, but the proper num- 
ber of degrees is about sixty. In olden 
times, and even in modern days, with 
some people, it was the rule for churn- 
ing to go on until butter was found in 
great lumps. That was a great fallacy. 
A point is react ¢ beyond 

hed in churr 
which any further churnin brings no 

improvement, and that point is when the 

butter has reached 
grains. The churning should take from 
twenty-five to thirty-five minute; if it 
was much less the butter would not be 
in good condition; if the churning took 
longer it would be spoiled. As to whether 
butter should be washed or not the prac- 
tice varied in different countries and 

size of small 

in different parts of England, and is a | 

matter entirely of taste. Those who are 
ustomed to unwashed butter certainly 
will not like the flavor of washed butter, 

Oats the Best Balanced of Grains. 

Oats are the best balanced of all grains, 
containing on the average about 12 per 
cent. of flesh form 65 per cent. of fat 
and warmth giving constituents, and 3 
per cent. of ash. A noticeable feature 
of oats in comparison with other foods 
is the large percentage of husk or fiber 
that they contain—namely, about 10 per 
cent. of the whole. When chopped or 
ground they make a better food than’ if 
fed whole, Oatmeal is far richer in 

flesh formers, fat and warmth producing | 

constituents, a3 it contains but little 
husk, It is, however, too expensive to 
feed asa rule, butit m 
food for chickens, and also for fattening 
purposes. Oatmeal consists of 15 per 
cent. of flesh formers, 75 per cent, of fat 
and warmth giving properties, and 2 per 
cent, of bone making substances,

“Enquirer” airs a grievance of old standing. 
We are ignorant of the regulations of the 
council regarding bread! but certainly there 
should be some stringent regulations for the 
protection of the public, and these regulations 
should be enforced. The bakers and the 
public alike demand that the council take 
action in such an important matter, 

The Rathbun Company have recently 
secured about eighty-five square miles of 
valuable timber limits on the head waters 
of the River Trent. The acquisition of 
such an extensive and valuable property 
must greatly inure to the extension und 
benefit of their great business in Desersnto. 
The Company have also made purchases of 
large quantities of wood aud other stuff 
along the extension of the N. I. & Q. Rail- 

Although the directors of the Nupance

Nurserymen of all kinds have been exer- 
cising more than ordinary persistency this 
past year to get their advertisement in the 
newspapers, payment being almost invari- 
ably promised in kind—a donation of a few 
flowers, roots and trees to the poor editor. 
Is it not time for nurserymen to exercise 
some self respect and pay in cash for their 
advertisements like other people? News 
paper men should combine and refuse to 
Insert such ads unless on proper conditions. 

Al Remarkable Yield, 

The Almonte Gazette says: We have had 
left with us a bean stalk aimost as remarkable 
as the one we were wont to read about and 
wonder over when in our tender years. 
It was grown by Mr. Wm. Borrowman, of 
Middeville, and is of the varicty known as 
the ‘‘tree” bean, a small white bean, aud said 
to be of excellent quality. The stalk con- 
tains,207 pods, which will average about six 
beaus to a pod, giving a yield of nearly 1,250 
beans from one seed. Prolific only mildly

Saturday night and requested to use his 
influence to quella little family disturbance 
which had broken ong on east Dundas street, 
Complications had arisen which resulted in 
a declaration of war and a furious outbreak 
of hostilities. The lord and master of the 
house was quickly brought to time by means 
of a broomstick wielded with fierce energy 
by his amiable consort. This weapon was 
first broken over kis back and he was sub- 
sequently pounded by his spouse and sou 
until he presented a pitiable appearance.

Emery of the township of Marmora, came to 
his death on the 19th day of September, 
1889, from a bullet wound in the chest, and 
we find the accused, Peter Davis, guilty of

position of chief of police in Napanee fur

Business Changes. 

Mr. M. C, Hamilton has moved to Lons- 
dale where he opens a general store, Mr. 

"Hamilton while in Deseronto showed himself 

possessed of good business capacity and 
proved himself u gentleman of integrity in 
all his dealings. We can safely commena 
him to the people of Lonsdale and vicinity 
assuring them that they will receive nothing 
but square dealings at his hand, Tue 
Trinune wishes him all success. That 
popular firm, Messrs Kerr & Wims will 
tuke possession of the shop vacated by Mr. 
Hamilton, in the McCullough Bleck. With 
a better stand and more room they may be 
expected to make things hum and be better 
enubled to please their patrons, They in 
turn are sucsveded by Mr. Robert Adams,

Shannonville Fair. 

Next Tuesday, Oct. Sth, is the date of the 
Shannonville fair, held under the direction 
of the Tyendinaga Agricultural Society. 
Everything points to an exceedingly inter- 
esting exhibition as the entries are numerous, 
the premium list liberal and the directors 
working energetically, ‘Vith fine weather 
there will be the largest attendance ever 
seen at Shannonville. Business men i 
Deseronto will find it to their interest to be 
there encouraging by their presence the 
ugricultural interests of the Riding with 
which, year by year, Deseronto is becoming 
more identified. The fair will show that 
the farmers of I'yendinaga and Thurlow are 
endeavouring, not without success, to im- 
prove their stock and their methods of 
cultivation, As a means of bringing old 
friends and neighbors together a fair affords 
ample opportunities. Tnx TRIBUNE hopes 
to see Deseronto well represented ‘and the 
directors of this useful society supported 
and encouraged by all the farmers of the 
district. Parties desiring information should 
write to or call upon Mr, A. Mucfarlane, 
Secretary, Melrose, P. O, 

Truculent Trentonians, 

‘Building lots which can be purchased in 
Trenton, Carleton Place, and other towns 
for prices varying from $100 to $200 cost 
from $300 to $500 in Deseronto,” Such was 
the harmless paragraph which Bppedred in 
‘Tun Trieunk a few weeks ayo. We rather 
envied the lot of people who lived in muni- 
cipalities in which lotsa could be purchased 
so cheup and that too on the installment 
plan, Trenton people have tuken mortal 
offence at the paragraph. One of the 
newspapers in that town of illimitable 
possibilities denied the fact that lots could 
be purchased in Trenton ar such figures, but 
as we gathered our information froin an 
advertisement in its columns we caunot be 
blamed, Now comes some one who styles 
himself “A Frequent Visitor,” (to Deseronto 
we presume) who writes to the Couricr, not 
to deny our assertion, —he could not do that 

but to explain why building lots are so 

Political Meetings.

at] p.m., and a reception will be held in 
the Royal hotel, Picton, in the evening, As 
thie is the first visit of the eloquent leader 
of the opposition to the Bay district, great 
numbers from all parts of the Bay district,

opportunities to hear his addresses on the 
questions of the day,

It was only by drastic remedies that she 
was prevented from sleeping the sleep which

Fanilling all kinds of medicines. 

Police Court, 

On Friday last Chief Gunyou arrested 
David Powles, Indiau, drunk and disorderly. 
The prisoner appeared before Commissioner 
McCullough who fined him $5 and costs, or 
20 days iu jail. The prisoner's friends paid 
the fine and he was released on Monday, A 
warrant was issued for the arrest of a young 
man named Howard, charged with purchas- 
ing the liquor for Powles. On Saturday Jast 
Butler Howard was summoned, on the com- 
plaint of Mr. Seth Wheeler, before Commis- 
sioner McCullough, for cruelty to a horse 
and damage to a buggy. The case was 
adjourned until Wednesday last when 
Howard was fined $5 and costs, or in default, 
twenty days in jail at hard labor. Mr. 
Bedford appeared for complainant,

We feel that it would be an injustice to 
oursclyes and # discouragement of con- 
acientions aud zealous discharge of duties 
did we allow you to leave ua and yo to

While we have not attempted, nor indeed

A Story of American Frontier

the Ranks,” “The Deserter,” Ete.

Philadelphia, and published by special arr: 
ment through the American Press Association. 


T WAS nearly midnight, and 
still the gay party lingered on 
the veranda. There had been 

afortnight of “getting settled” at the 

new post, preceded by a month of march- 
ing that had brought the battalion from 
vistant service to this strange Texan sta- 
fon. The new comers had been hospita- 
lly welcomed by the officers of the little 
garrison of infantry, and now, in recog- 
nition of their many courtesies, the field 
officer commanding the arriving troops 
had been entertaining the resident offi- 
cers and ladies at dinner. The colonel 
was a host in himself, but preferred not 
to draw too heavily on his reserves of 
anecdote and small talk, so he had called 
in two of his subalterns to assist in the 
pleasant duty of being attentive to the 
infantry ladies, and just now, at 11:45 p. 
m., he was wondering if Lieut. Perry 
had not too literally construed his in- 
structions, for that young gentleman 
was devoting himself to Mrs. Belknap in 
a manner so marked as to make the cap- 
tain, her lawful lord and master, mani- 
festly uneasy. 

Mrs. Belknap, however, seemed to en- 
joy the situation immensely, She was 
a pretty woman at most times, as even 
her rivals admitted. She was a beauti- 
ful woman at all times, was the verdict 
of the officers of the regiment when they 
happened to speak of the matter among 
themselves. She was dark, with lus- 
trous eyes and sweeping lashes, with 
coral lips and much luxuriance of tress, 
and a way of glancing sideways from 
under her heavily fringed eyelids that 
the younger and more impressionable 
men found quite irresistible when ac- 
corded the rare luxury of a tete-a-tete. 
Belknap was a big and boisterous man; 
Mrs. Belknap was small in stature, and 
soft—very soft—of voice. Belknap was 
either brusquely repellent or oppressively 
cordial in manner; Mrs. Belknap was 
either gently and exasperatingly indif- 
ferent to those whom she did not care to 
attract, or caressingly sweet to those 
whose attentions she desired. 

In their own regiment t! 
eczs soon found that unle 
to be involved in an unpleasantness with 
Pelknap it was best to be only very mod- 
grately deroted to his pretty wife, and 
those to whom an uipleba tee with 
the big captain might have had no ter- 
rors ‘of consequence were deterred by 
the fact that Mrs. Belknap’s devotee 
among the “youngsters” had invariably 
become an object of coldness and ayer- 
sion to the other dames and damsels of 
the garrison. Very short lived, there- 
fore, had been the little flirtations that 
spring up from time to time in those 
frontier posts wherein Capt. and Mrs. 
Belknap were among the chief or 
ments of society; but now matters 
seemed to be taking other shape. From 
the very day that handsome Ned Perry 
dismounted in front of Belknap's quar 
ters and with his soldicry salute reported 
to the then commanding officer that Col. 
Brainard and his battalion of cavalry 
would arrive in the course of two or 
three hours, Mrs. Belknap had evinced a 
ceatentment in his society and assumed 
an air of quasi-proprietorship that served 
to annoy her garrison sisters more than 
alittle. For the time b sing all the cav- 
men were bachelors, either by ac- 
rank or “by brevet,” as none of the 
ladies of the —th ccompanied the bat- 
talion on its march, and none were ex- 
pected until the stations of the regiment 
in its new department had been definite- 
ly settled. The post surgeon, too, was 
living a life of single blessedness as the 
early spring wore on, for his good wife 
had betaken herself, with the children, 
to the distant east as soon as the disap- 
pearance of the winter's snows rendered 
ipg over the hard pre 
matter of no great danger or discomfort. 

It was the doctor himself who, seated 
in an easy chair atthe end of the ve- 
randa, first called the colonel’s attention 
to Perry's devotional attitude at Mrs, 
Belknap’s side. She was rec lining in a 
hammocks, one little, s lippered foot occa- 

young offi- 
; they wished

Perry, they wert

of the scene 


be received. That their eyes should oc 

casionally wander towards the ham 

intimate was natural enough. 
it became presently apparent that Mrs. 
| Belknap ws 
little silken bi 
rival—all the while, too, looking sh, 
up in his eyes as her fingers worked; 
when it was seen that she presently de- 
tached it from the button and then, half 
hesitatingly, but evidently in compliance 
with his wishes, handed it to him; when 
he was seen to toss it’ carelessly—even 
contemptuously—away and then bend 
down lower, as though gazing into her 
shaded ey 

id that had hung on Ned 

it no longer. 
“Mr. Graham, 

"said she, “isn’t your 
friend, Mr. Perry, something of a flirt?” 
“Who?—Ned?” asked Mr. Graham, in 
well feigned amaze and with sudden 
glance towards the object of his inquiry. 
“How 6n earth should I know anything 
about it? Of course you do not seek ex- 
pert testimony in asking me, t 
suppose, to adapt-himself to cireum- 
stances. But why do you ask?” 
“Because I see that he has been induc- 
ing Mrs. Belknap to take off that little 
tassel on the button of hiscap. He has 
worn it when off duty ever since he 
came; and we supposed it was something 
he cherished; I now she did.” 

Graham broke forth in a pealof merry 
*sughter, but gave no further reply, for 
just then the colonel and the doctor left 
their chairs, and, sauntering over to the 
hammock, brought miglty relief to Bel- 
knap at the whist table and vexation of 
spirit to his pretty wi The flirtation 
was broken at a most interesting point, 
and Perry, rising suddenly, came over 
and joined Mrs, Lawrence. 

Tf she expected to see him piqued or 
annoyed at the interruption and some- 
what perturbed in manner, she was 
greatly mistaken. Nothing could have 
been more sunshiny and jovial than the 
greeting he gave her. A laughing apol- 
ogy to Graham for spoiling his tete-a- 
tete was accomplished in a moment, and 
then down by her side he satand plunged 
into a merry description of his experi- 
ences at dinner, where he had been 
placed next to the chaplain’s wife on the 
one hand, and she had been properly ag- 
grieved at his attentions to Mrs. Belknap

Mr. Perry, I see you have lost that mys-

Perry laughed, his blue eyes twinkling

what you have heard about Dunraven

“T cannot, unless Capt. Lawrence

conjectures and theories.”

“Yes—n promise.” 

“Very well, then, You are a witness

I have worn that tassel ever 
since our parting ball at Fort Riley. 
That is to say, it has been-fastened to 
that button ever since the ball until to- 
night; but 've been mighty careful not 
to wear that cap on-any kind of duty.” 

“And yet you let Mrs. Belknap take it 
off to-night?” 

“Why shouldn't 1? There was no 
sentiment whatever attached to it. I 
haven't the faintest idea whose it was, 
and only tied it there for the fun of the 
thing and to make Graham, here, ask 

“Mr. Perry!” gasped Mrs. Lawrence. 
“And do you mean that Mrs. Belknap

just told me?” 

“Well, no,” laughed Perry, “I fancy 
Mrs. Belknap thinks as you thought— 
that it was a gaged’amour. Hallo! look 
at that light away out there across the 
prairie. What can that be?” 

Mrs. Lawrence rose suddenly to her 
feet and gazed southeastward in the di- 
rection in which the young officer point- 
ed. It was a lovely, starlit night. A 
soft wind was blowing gently from the 
south and bearing with it the fragrance 
of spring blossoms and far away flower- 
ets. Others, too, had arisen, attracted 
by Perry’s sudden exclamation. Mrs. 
Belknap turned Janguidly in her ham- 

on the other. 
“You must remember that Mrs. Wells 
is a very strict Presbyterian, Mr. Perry; 
and, for that matter, none 6f us have 
seen a dinner such as the colonel gave us 
this evening for ever and ever so long. 
We are quite unused to the ways of 
civilization; whereas you ave just come 
from the east—and long leave. Perhaps 
it is the fashion to be all devotion to 
one’s next door neighbor at dinner.” 
“Not if she be as repellent and yener- 
able as Mrs, Wells, L assure you. . Why, 
{ thought she would have been glad to 
leave the table when, after having re- 
fused sherry and Pontet-Canet for up- 
wards of an hour, her glass was filled 
with champagne when she happened to 
be looking the other war.” 
“It is the first dinner of the kind she 
has ever scen here, Mr. Perry, and I 
don’t suppose either Mr. or Mrs. Wells 
has been up so late before in years, Ie 
would have enjoyed staying and watch- 
ing whist, bet she ied him off almost 
as soon as we left the table. Ouf socicty 
has been very dull, you know—only our- 
selves at the post all this last year, and 
nobody outside of it.”

magnificent cattle range there would be

The Indian Problem Not Yet Solved. 

While we congratulate the people of 
the whole northwest, and especially the 
citizens of Dakota, on the consummation 
of their long desire, the opening of the 
reservation by no means puts an end to 
the Indian problem as far as the Sioux 
are concerned. On the contrary, it is 
scarcely more than the beginning. Oaly 
a part of the reserve is acquired by the 
government; and the same questions will 
doubtless arise in future, as to that part, 
which have proved so vexatious in rela 
tion to the whole. No settlement can 
ever be regarded as final which stops 
short of the absolute allotment of lands 
in sevéralty and the adding of all that 
remiins to the public domain. Again, 
it seems as if the government were me 
ly abandoning one posture of the “*guar- 
| dian and ward” attitude in order to as- 
sume another. ‘The reservation system, 
with its issue of rations and consequent 
tendencies toward idleness and vice, has 
searcely u friend remaining. Yet we 
have only the same thing in@:nother 
form in the practice of accumulating im- 
mengp cash funds for the benefit of the 
Indiah, to be held in trast by the nation, 
while interest is paid regularly to the 
beneficiary. The purchase of these lands 
by the nation means a permanent invest- 
ment in trust for the Indian. And it is 
not according to nature that a quarterly 
payment to him of so many dollars in 
cash as interest will be any less demoral- 
izing than the issue of so many blankets 
and so many pounds of flour, beef and 
pork.—St. Paul Pioneer-Press. 


me Sold the Samples. 

A drummer who had just arrived from 
Arizona was in town last week taking 
| orders for shirts. He says there are bad 
men down there. The cowboys got hold 
of him and wanted to. buy his samples. 
He replied that he wouldn't sell them for 
any price. ‘‘Won’t, eh?’’ said a bystander. 
“Well, now, I guess you will.”? The tough 
citizen playfully toyed with the handle of 
2 Small sized cannon that he carried in his 
belt and told ‘the boys’ to help them- 
selves. And the jerseys, many striped 
hose, and underwear of all kinds, was di- 
vided among the crowd. ‘The boys’? paid 
the seared drummer his own price with- 
outa murmur, but declared that shirts 
were scarce in Arizona, ’specially some o’ 
those fancy ones, and that life was too 
short to wait for shirts or¢ from 
‘Frisco. The drummer was slapped on 
the back, had his hat knocked off, was 
playfully pushed around among the crowd 
and finally invited up to drink. He didn’t 
refuse, and was the meekest looking 
drummer we've seen in many a day when 
he arrived in Lugofia.—Lugonia South-

Contributions had been frecly made 
for her benefit, but now some new object 
engrossed the fickle public, and 

the project of removing her to some 
charitable institution was being dis- 
cussed. Dr, Forbes and several othe 

sat about the room. The girl looked liice 
bed, her long hands crossed above her 
heart, her face like marble in its impas- 
siveness. yet warm with life. She hada 
wealth of golden hair, and it lay about 
her like a veil. The discussion had be- 
come heated, Dr. Forbes contending for 
delay in removing her. Suddenly all 
were startled by a clear, sweet voice ex- 

“Do not hesitate, gentlemen. Cartme 
off to the poor house at your carliesé 
convenience. No other place could. be 
so suitable for such a useless clod.” 

All eyes turned in utter amazement to 
find a pair cf dark eyes regarding them 

Dr. Forbes instantly sprang to her side. 

“QO there isn’t any change, doctor, save 
that my tongue is lcosened, and I can 
open my eyes.” 

This proved to be the case, but a little 
later she found that she could move her 
head. There the improvement ended, 
however, much to the good doctor's re- 
gret. They plied her with questions, 
but she resolutely refused to disclose her 
identity, only admitting her name was 
Eden. She urged them to take her to 
the charity hospital, saying it was where 
she belonged. 

It was at length decided to leave her 
where she was until further effort could 
be made to induce her to disclose the ad- 
dress of her friends, That she belonged 
to some good family was apparent from 
her refined appearance. Her cluthing 
was elegant and costly. A dainty watch 
and chain and other valuable articles of 
jewelry had been found upon her per- 
son. All this butdeepened the mystery. 

When Dr. Forbes left the farm house 
he made his way to one of the most ele- 
gant suburban residences the city boasts. 
He received a cordial grecting from its 
mistress. a delicate, proud looking, el- 
derly lady in widow's weeds. 

After a short conversation on different 
topics Dr, Forbes said, abruptly: 

“Mrs. Searle, you said the other day 
you had nothing to live for, since your 
| son had disappointed you so grievously. 
I have come to tell you where you can 
get a beautiful toy, human, but. one 
which can never turn against you,” 

Then in’ rapid, ‘earnest words he ye- 
lated the particulars I have already 
given. ‘The result far exceeded his an- 
ticipation. Mrs, Searle was faulty only 
in her pride of birth and position, her 
heart being kind and easily moyed to 
pity. She at once rang the bell; ordered 
the carriage, and upon its being brought 
entered it with the doctor and was 
driven to the farm house. 

Dr. Forbes explained to the helpless 
girl what arrangements had been made 
for her comfort, and he never will forget 
the look of horror her dark eyes express- 
ed at mention of Mrs. Searle’s name. At 
first She refused even to see her, but at 
| length consented. As the lady bent over 
her, infinite pity in her still fine eyes, 
she murmured reproachfully:

“Omy God! Kenneth! Kenneth!” 

Mrs. Searle heard the despairing wail 
as she had also heard her son's ery. 

“Who are you?” she demanded, fierce- 
ly, clutching one of the helpless arms. 

“Tam his wife.” 

Stunned by the unexpected reply, the 
miserable woman turned and followed 
the men who bore Kenneth to his room. 

It was only a faint, from which he 
soon recovered. But the bones of his 
broken arm had been displaced by his 
fall, and a physician had to be summon- 
ed toreset it. When it was over, and 
all had left the room save his mother, 
he turned to her. 

“Mother, did Isee Eden, or did Idream 

“You saw her,” crossly and shortly.

face. How came sbe here?” : 

Mrs, Searle burstinto passionate weep- 
ing. How cruelly wicked she had been! 
As soon as she could speak she related 
the circumstances of Eden’s coming, but 
she dared not tell him his bride was a 
lielpless paralytic, Then at last she re- 
membered the girl was in a state of 
cruel suspense in regard to Kenneth’s 
condition, and hurried below. 

She found her to all appearance dead. 
No breath stirred the white breast, and 
the dark lashes drooped low upon the 
pale cheelks, hiding the sweet eyes, 

A mighty fear convulsed Mrs, Searle's 
heart. Mustshe break her boy’s heart 
with the intelligence that death had 
stolen his love at the moment of her re- 

But active measures recalled the spirit 
hovering on the borderland of the un- 
known, and to the agonized inquiry in 
the dark eyes Mrs. Searle whispered an 
assurance that all was well. 

The yoice she loved best on earth 
echoed the words, his dear lips pressed 
hers in love's sweet kiss. “When she saw 
his dear face, so worn and haggard, how

“Mr, Maxwell is right," said the cap-

which meets the equatorial counter cur- 
rent, which circles Oceanica, and another, 
the Moxican coast current, which comes 
down from the north, and they meet and 
each plows its own way up or down or 
tcross, as it may be, and it flows between 
these islands to be resisted and sheered off 
fn another direction. Of course they ara

“Certainly not.” 

“Max has always felt badly about our 
necessary slaughter of those creatures, '’ 
said George, “and I believe he dlyays 
prayed for purdon when he killed ono.” 

“Well,” said Max, with dignity, “I 
don’t think it did no harm, did it? And 
besides, they looked at you allers so_piti- 
‘ful; just as if they could talk, only'they

“Don't mind me, Max; I always felt 
the same way; and I never want to kili 
anything-again to eat ‘as.long as-I live.” 

The winds were fayorable and the ship 
sailed fast, and the captain was proud of 
her beauty as the white foam flew by her 
sides and ore broad snowy ribbon 
far behind her, and they reached and 
passed Valparaiso without touching and 
went merrily on their way. The captain 
hoped that the weather would admit of 
their going through the straits of Magel- 
lan, and he walked the deck and watched 
every sign anxiously, i 

They had passed the belt where the 
calm lies in wait for anxious sailors and 
holds them until it seems as if they would 
die of annoyance at their forced delay 
and were now in the trade winds, which 
never fails to raise the spirits of every 
one, and the sailors sang their rollicking 
Songs at night and the Officers talked 
cheerfully with the passengers, each re- 
lating his adventures, 

At last the critical hour arrived and 
they had the satisfaction of gliding safely 
through the channel beside Cape Pilar 
and sailing smoothly along just as the 
clouds had covered the sky and the wind 
began to rise, and it was not moro than 
three hours after they entered the strait 
before they were in the midst of a terri- 
ble storm that threatened them with de- 
struction, They ran before the wind as 
well as possible, though the wind droye 
thom so fast that it was only with the ut- 
most difficulty they could keep in the 

At last the captain determined to make 
for a sheltered bay upon the coast of Verra 
del Fuego, and there anchor until the 
force of the tempest had Spent itself, as 
the ship was heavily loaded and he did 
not wish to risk her loss, for he knew she 
Was straining from the hard, short, chop- 
Ping waves which struck with such 
Vicious force; so he made for this place, 
which was so well sheltered against the 

fury of the storm that in ten minutes 
from the time he rounded the point she 
was riding quietly at anchor, and the crew 
and officers, as well as the passengers, sat 
down to their supper as if they had never 
heard of a storm. 

It was late in the afternoon when the 
Empire anchored, and a sharp watch was 
kept during the night for fear that the 
natives night try to capture the ship. 
The x passed unmolested, but with 

reak of daylight the ship was 
surrounded with canoes full of strange 
looking men, women and children, all 
begging for presents, and offering pen- 
guns and eggs for sale, They were a 
distressed looking lot, and the passengers 
Were anxious to see some of them closer 
and a few of them were permitted to 
clamber up to the deck, 

Several of them could speak enough 
English to make themselves partially un- 
derstood, and it rather amused Mr. Os- 
borne to make them talk, while the rest 
listened, and he had a lot of provisions, es- 
pecially sugar, brought upto give them; 
and then, just for the funof the thing, 
told the steward to bring up some vinegar 
to give them a drink and see how they 
would like it. 

No sooner did the steward make his ap- 
pearance with the little keg than they 
changed countenauce and showed every 
evidence of intense fear, and all of them 
began to side toward the companionway, 
as though thelr object was to make their 

The captain inquired what was the mat- 
ter, when they pointed to the keg in hor- 
ror, and managed to make him under- 
ntand that there was danger to them in 
the keg, and told him that some three or 
four seasons ago a vessel like theirs had 
come into one of their deep bays for shel- 

uegians then went down into the 
ship's hold and brought up much pro- 
Visions and cloths and arms to take on 
shore, since all these men were dead, and 
among tho things they found a little cask 
like that, and when it was opened they 
fonnd the liquor in it smelt like that they 
Sonictimes got from passing vessels, and it 
tasted even 

of it, and it was certainly bewitche for 
every one who drank fell on the deck and 
died, and since then the witch ship lies in 
the same cove, and no one of them has 
over red to board her One of their

While this © was being told the faces 
of these listeners changed curiously, and 
before the mention of the serpent’s head 
thoy wore convinced that fate hud brought 
thom to the very brig that had been cap- 
tured from them so long ago, and they 
did not donbt that the wretches had quar- 
reled and fought among themselves until 
they had destroyed each other, 

As to the cask or keg, George and Max- 
well talked it over alone, wondering 
whether it was not the very one they had 
taken from their island home, They ar- 
gued, and very justly, that it was quite 
possible that the pirates who had made 
their rendezvous and storehouse on the 
island had purposely poisoned this wine 
and left it so that whoever happened to 
find their place, if any ever did, should 
drink of it and die. 

With much difficulty the natives were 
persuaded to guide the ship toward the 
bay where the deserted ship lay. About 
8 o’clock in the afternoon they rounded a 
point and sailed into a small almost land- 
locked bay, where, idly rocking at anchor, 
lay the brig Absolute, deserted and 

weather beaten.

Idly rocking at ancher, lay the brig Abso- 

The captain gave a great shout as he 
saw her, and George and Maxyell shook 
hands till it seemed they would never 
stop. diet ies ' = 

The Empire was brought to and an- 
chored as near as was practicable to the 
deserted vessel, andthe captain, seeond 
mate, George, Maxwell and~Mr. Osborne 
all went on board, with two or three 
Sailors, and they found the deck strewn 
with skeletons. 

It did not take them long to satisfy 
themselyes that there was no living soul 
on board, so they returned shortly to the 
Empire and arranged to* take the skele- 
tons on shore and give them what they 
certainly had not deserved, a Christian 
burial, and two entire days were passed 
in this work. After the wretched creat- 
ures had been buried, the captain caused 
a careful survey of the brig to be made to 
find out whether or not she was sea- 
worthy, and they decided that with a few 
repairs it would be safe to venture. The 
captain would have risked a great deal to 
get his lost ship back again to her owners. 
The captain divided his crews and put 
the secoud mate in command, and in just 
three weeks after discovering the aban- 
doned vessel they were sailing through 
the Straits of Magellan. 

The third day after setting sail they 
discovered a raft upon which were eight 
famishing and freezing men, who had 
saved themselves after their ship had 
burned to the water’s edge, and these 
men, after having been fed and otherwise 
cared for, were only too glad to take their 
places in the forcastles of the ship and 
brig, four in each, and they helped ma- 
terially in bringing both safely to their 
haven. The gaptain of the Empire or- 
dered that they should keep as close to- 
gether as was practicable, and they 
burned peculiar lights by night and kept 
in sight by day, though the Empire would 
have been able to outsail the Absolute if 
they had not shortened sail on parpuse to 
go slower. 

They put into Rio Janeiro to have the 
Absolute overhauled to be sure she was 
still stanch, and in a few days they were 
again sailing on toward Boston. Randall 
had been in very poor health the whole of 
the voyage, but had seemed to rally as 
they approached their haven, and he told 
Mr. Osborne that all he hoped was to live 
to see justice meted out to Starling and 
George come in possession of his own 
again, and then he was willing to die. 
The ship’s doctor did everything he knew 
how to do, but Randall's intemperate 
habits had developed a fatal disease, and 
he was slowly dying and suffering in- 
tensely all the time. 

Maxwell seemed to grow moody and 
sad as they neared their harbor, and at 
last actually took to his berth, saying 
nothing, but turning his face to the wall, 

George said: 

“Max, tell me what is the matter with 
you. Areyousick? No? Suffering from 
your leg? No? Well, then, what is it? 
is not fair that you ghould not tell me, 
when we've been friends, yes, much more 
than friends, for so long. And now, 
after all our long trials and sufferings, 
we are nearing the land.”’ 

“That's just it, George. 
the matter, You’ve been more than a 
own son to me and I've never had no one 
but you, and now you won't want me any 
longer and I don’t know how Im going 
to get along without you,”’ 

“Max! Yon old wretch! 
ever let you leave me again, or quit yout 
We've been through too much together 
and nothing shall ever part us. Never!'’ 

“I—I—think, I feel better, George. I 
ain't crying, but—well—God bless you! 
Let's go on deck. I'm all right now.” 

And with a hearty grip that would have 
trushed any one else's hands they shook 

hands and went up to the deck together, 
and Max's health and spirits rose like a

made to swear that he would not get

clutches of the ‘‘crimps’’ or sailor board- 


| socintes who pillage the ignorant sailors 
on shore. 

Each mate and the captain also received 
generous gifts, as also did the surgeon, 
the cook and cabin boy. None was for- 
gotten, and every one felt happier for 
having known George Marvin. 

and sadder as he approached his home, 
for it brought him nearer the scene of the 
dreadful tragedy which had darkened his 
young life, made him a lonely wanderer 
and bereft him so utterly. Now he was 
going to bring the assassin to justice, but 
nothing could restore him his beauti- 
ful young mother’s love and care, nothing 
give him back his father’s protecting 
friendship. Would he find his good but 
easily deceived old grandfather alive? 
Would he find Starting still in Lowell? 
All those doubts, fears and sorrows 
struggled in George’s mind until he could 
hardly contain himself, and his anxiety 
was painful. 


The arrival of a party of strangers of so 
remarkablo a mien made quite a sensation 
in Lowell, although it is so large a place, 
but no breath of warning reached Starling 
to tell him that retribution was on 
his path, and he went to church and 
led his class in Sunday school with as 
much apparent pleasure as ever, and as he 
walked up the aisle with his smooth and 
shining coat, his well brushed hair aud 
carefully modulated walk, all who saw 
him felt the respect due to so yery pious, 
respectable and wealthy a man. 

His eyes, which were fixed sanctimoni- 
ously on the ground, did not see three 
men who sat in a back seat, and who 
watched him closely, They were George, 
his uncle and Maxwell. Randall was pur- 
posely absent for fear that he might be 

The next morning Starling received a 
note from the headquarters of police re- 
questifig him to call there immediately on 
the most pressing business, and Starling, 
not for one moment suspecting the nature 
of this business, made haste to reach there, 
thinking it related to.a robbery which had 
been committed in his counting house not 
long ago. 

When he reached there he found him- 
self the center of a group of officers, and 
they all wore so-grave an aspect that he 
felt his heart sink with a sudden fear; 
but after the first shock of surprise he 
asked coldly what the nature of the busi- 
ness was that had been the cause of so 
imperative a summons. 

“You are here, Mr, Starling, to answer 
a few questions reJating to an accusation 
which has been brought to us and which 
has seemed of sufficient importance to 
cause us to request your attendance. Let 
Mr. Marvin be called.”’ 

At this moment George Maryin stepped 
up and stood looking Starling full in the 
face, and the eyes, so like those of the in- 
nocent woman he had so cruelly stran- 
gled, cowed him so completely that his 
strength forsook him, as he remembered 
the child’s oath when he said at his 
mother’s grave, “With God’s help I’ll 
have you hung for this!” 

George told his story—all he knew and 
all he believed—and the officers listened 
in horrified wonder. But, except his word, 
George had no proof but the bit of the 
broken scarf pin. Then, just as Starling 
was beginning to hope he might manage 
to escape, Randall was supported into the 
room and told his story, and produced the 
last will of the murdered man; and then, 
indeed, Starling felt that he was lost, which 
feeling deepened into certainty as his own 
letters to Randall were shown, and Ran- 
dall’s friend appeared in court and corrobo- 
rated all that Randall had said regarding 
the money which had been given by Star- 
ling as the price of silence. 

Starling made a moyement as if to 
escape, but the officers held him while the 
necessary formalities were gone throv 
with, and Starling was placed under ar- 
rest without bail to await his trial. <A 
search of his house was rewarded by find- 

| ing many trifling things which helped to 

convict him, among others the other part 
of the horseshoe pin. 

Public opinion was very strong against 
him, and people shudder®d with horror at 
the recital of his crimes; they had so re- 
spected him as a noble and Christian 
man, that to find him guilty of such 
duplicity and hypoeris emed.a shame 
upon themselves to havé been so deceived, 
and when at last he was dragged to the 
gallows, n begging, weeping, pitiable 
wretch, and paid the penalty of his crimes, 
every one rejoiced 

Old Mr. Morris was still alive, but 
vory feeble, and hetrejoiced with a full 
heart to see his noble son whom he had 
long thought dead, and when bis wrand- 
son, George, whose fate had also beena 
Mystery, was presented he could not con- 
tain his joy, but wept like a child, as he 
begged forgiveness for his credulity and 
his undue harshness, Of course, neither 
blamed him, and the last few months of 
his life were made peaceful and happy. 

As s00n as Starling had patd the penalty 
of his villainy George and Maxwell went 
to New York to see Maxwell's sister, and 
Max found his namesake a pretty, but 
saucy little boy, whom he idolized. They 
bought a nice home for Max's sister and 
set her husband up in a good business, 
and Max put a good round sum in the 

ing house keepers, or any of those low as- | 

But George felt his heart grow heavier | 

| All hope was gone! We all know how in 
moments of supreme cmotion the most 
trivial details become indelibly stamped 
upon the mind. ‘The scene is now before 
me. I saw the red haired seal hunter

A Dance in Kamschatka. 

A dance had just ceased as we arrived, 
and we took our seats in placid ignorance 
of what was in store for us. Presently 
the squeak of the fiddle was heard, and 
instantly the ladies rushed in search of 
partners, There was a great move in the 
direction of the two Swedes and the rest 
of the Party; and as became a modest old | 
helor I prepared to faire tapisserie | 
h the papas and mammas. But it was 
destined to be otherwise, for, on raising 
my eyes, [found that two fair damsels | 
were suing for the honor of my hand.

beautiful. * © * However, there was 
no time to be lost. The seal hunter, the 
American nigger and the tall Swedewere | 
already hard at it, and slipping my arm 
round the waist of the nearest fair one I 
plunged blindly into the dance. 

The affair was simple enough at first. 
The dance merely consisted in shuffling 
slowly round the room side by side, the 
gentleman with his left arm free, the lady 
accompanying the music with a sort of 
monotonous chant. Time vy of no par- 
ticular object, and smoking was per- 
mitted; and as we had partaken neither 
| of the cranberries nor the corn brandy, 
We felt as well as could be expected under 
the circumstances. It was not for long, 
however, Suddenly the music stopped; 
everybody clapped hands; and, short and 
stern, tho order rang out in Russian, 
“Kiss.” There are moments. in which 
even the stoutest spirit quails. I 
turned a despairing glance on my 

| partner and my heart sank within me, 

The Buckeye for Rheumatism. 

I always carry a buckeye. It may seem 
rather superstitious, and it may even be 
superstitious, but, if it is, I know a jrreat 
many people who aré superstitious, and 




among them anumber of the most suc- 
cessful merchants on ’Change. There 
was n time when I did not believe in buck- 
eyes, but a number of years ago I hag the 
rheumatism, and could obtain no relief 
whatever. Some one edvised me to carry 
a buckeye. I did so, and I have not had 
the rheumatism since, It may not have 
been the bnekeye, and, again, it may 
haye. I think it was. I carried that buck- 
eye for about ten years, until it had been 
reduced in size fully two-thirds and was 
hard as a rock. Then I changed it, but I 
have one now which is as hard and 
smooth as marble, and which ever 
changes. I carry it as a curiosity now, 
but with it I generally have half a dozen 
others, more or less fresh. The changes 
through which the buckeye goes are rather 
interesting, and seem to me to be proof of 
the fact that they absorb the ills of the 
body and prevent their spreading or being 
felt. After they are carried for a time 
they become soft and spongy, and then, 
gradually reducing in size, they become 
hard as ebony, and after a while you 
would take them almost for ebony.—Col. 
C. O. Dutcher in Globe-Democrat. 

How Inexperienced Hunters Aro Lost. 

Inexperienced hunters should never, 
when it can be avoided, go out alone into 
a wooded section they are not familiar 
with, as in case of fogs or snow storms 
they are quite likely to become lost 
or bewildered. I  haye known sey- 
eral such cases where men, losing 
their bearings, have wandered about 
for days in a state of confusion and uncer- 
tainty, upon the verge of lunacy. They 
do not reason upon their situation, but 
invariably exhaust themselves by running 
ahead at their utmost speed without the 
least regard to directions, and often fol- 
low their own tracks eround in a circle, 
with the idea that they are ina beaten 

During one of my earliest expeditions 
over the plains, a German gentleman with 
the party became lost while hunting, and 
was absent for about ten days before he 
rejoined us; and during all this time he 
was wandering about between the Cana- 
dian River and the plain wagon road we 
had made, which atno point were over two 
miles apart. Yet he did not remember 
seeing either the road or river at any time 
during his long absence.—Onuting. 


Sufferers are not generally aware that 
these diseases are contagious, or that they 
are due to the presence of living parasites 
in the lining membrane of the nose and 
eustachian tubes. Microscopic research, 
however, has proved this to be a fact, and 
the result of this discovery is that a 
simple remedy has been formulated where- 
by catarrh, catarrhal deafness and hay 
fever are permanently cured in from one 
to three simple applications made at homo 
by the patient once in two weeks.

When an animal or article is lost, the

Napanee Fair will be held on the Sth and 
Oth inst.. the latter date being of course the 
great day of the exhibition. Napanee has 
always had one of the best fairs of the 
District, and all indications point to a 
successful event this year. The Manitoba

Magnificent Beef. 

Mr. KE. Westmoreland, of the Central 
Meat Market, showed some magnificent beef 
last Saturday. He had purchased and killed 
on the preceding day a five year old Durham 
heifer from Mr. Wm, Jamieson’s ranch in 
Sophiasburg. The animal weighed 820 lbs, 
and u crowd of visitors pronounced the beef 
to be as fine a speciinen as they had ever

Vive at the Chemical Works. 

At 1:30 p. m. un Sanday the fire alarm 
sounded locating a fire at the Chemical 
Works, On arriving there it was found 

that a small shed, situated at the west end 

of the works and used for the storage of tar 
fuel was on fire, the result of spontaneous 
combustion. Two heavy streams of water 
were playing on it in a wonderfully short 
time and the flames were soon extinguished. 
The damage was very trifling, 

Grand Jury Presentment, 

At the late Assizes the Grand Jury in their 
presentment condemned the practice of 
sending lunatics to county jails; referred in 
congratulatory terms to the improvements 
in the jail building and the consequent proper 
classification of paspnars ; advised that 
prisoners be furnished with proper books and 
papers ; declared in favour of a continuance 
of the jury system as a safeguard to the 
people’s liberties ; commended the manage-

Rey. Robert Atkinson is meeting with 
much success in his charge. Both of the 
churches, thanks to hia indefatigable zeal, 
have been renovated and a great «deal of 
work done to improve the appearance of the 
grounds by rew fences, £2. Side lamps 
have lately been. provided in S, Philip's 
church, Milford, to match the new chan- 
delievy. Last Sunday evening Mr, Atkinson 
preached o special sermon to the young 
people, The people are very willing to 
ussist their pastor iu new enterprises. 
Potato Rot. f 

‘To combat potato rot this plan is given : 
Dig carly, provided the tubers come up 
clean and withous earth adhering. Put 
thein in a cool place, where air curreuts may 
pass up through them, say in an apartment 
in a barn, with a slatted floor next above the 
basement. ‘The air can pass up from below. 
They may be deposited tour feet in thick- 
ness. If the potatoes are clean when placed 
there they will not rot to any extent after- 
wards, although nearly one-half of the crop 
may previonsly have rotted in the field. 

The Proper Method. 

The Hightest Court of the Church of 
England in Cavada® hus declared itself in 
favor of the free pew system; and this sign 
of the times is all the more significant that 
a strong voice in favor of the change came 
from the lay clement. The wording of the 
resolution should be particularly noticed. 
Pews, it says, should not only be free but 
unappropriated. That is to say, any wor— 
shipper may take any seat in the house of 
God without any fear of intrusion upon the 
.| rights of his fellowmen. 

Invite that Clergyman to Deseronto, . 

The Whig states that ‘‘last Sunday morn- 
ing a little boy, in one of the chfirches, got 
up during the service to leave. The 
minister stopped preaching, and addressing 
himself to the boy, told him to sit down and 
not disturb the congregation. The boy 
obeyed.” It is not likely that the Deseronto 
boy would obey iu a similar case, but all the 
same it wovld not be amisa to invite that 
clergyman here for a few Sundays to give 
some lessons in ordinary manners and 
reverence for the house of God, to the boys 
and girls, yes, and older person; also, in all 
our churches. 

Good Advice. 

An exchange gives the following receipt 
for making a good town :—Grit, push, snap, 
energy, Yim, ,churches schools, colleges, 
morality, cnterprise, harmony, advertising, 
cordiality, cheap property, healthy location, 
talk about it, help to improve it, advertise 
in and read your papers, patronize 
its merchants, faith exhibited in good works, 
honest competition in business, help all pub- 
lic enterprises, elect good men to office, 
speak well of its public spirited, enterprising 
citizens, and be one of them yourself. Re- 
member that every dollar invested in per- 
manent improvements is that much on inter- 
est, Always cheer on the man who goes in 
for improvements. 


One of our exchanges very aptly declares 
that these business men who daub up their 
letter heads and envelopes with acheap 
rubber stamp, instead of doing the square 
thing by the printer and themselves too, 
make nothing by it. Wholesale dealers and 
all lurge firms look with suspicion upon these 
nasty little daubs, and the man or concern 
who perpetrates them is rated accordingly. 
In commercial circles more importance is 
attached to the style of stationery used than 
some of our very economical friends imagine, 
and it is certainly a dead give-away on the 
atanding of avy business or professional man 
to practice this form of mistaken economy. 

A Quietus. 

Few persons are bold enough to deal with 
the concert conversation nuisance as openly 
and effectively as the gentleman in the 
following case did ;—At a concert in a pro- 
vincial town a gentleman in the audience 
rose up just as the third piece on the pro- 
gramme had been performed and said, “Mr. 
Conductor will you oblige me by requesting 
your vocalists either to sing louder or in 
Whispers, as, close by where I sit, there is a 
conversation going on in such a loud tone as 
to hinder my epjoyment of the mus ; 
prefer, certainly, to hear the concert ; but if 
T cannot be so privileged, I desire to hear 
the conversation.” There was an extremely 
quiet audience during the rest of the even- 

Always Extending. 

With the operfivg of the Murray canala 
great boom will be given to business in Des- 
eronto, As we have always predicted this 
town will be the greatest guiner by that 
important public work. The Rathbun Com- 
pany are already making arran, ements to 
take advantage of the changed condition 
of things. We observe by the Sentinel that 
the Company have opened out business in 
Cobourg on Division strect, in what was 
formerly Payne's foundry, which has been 
fitted up and an addition made. The coal 
business ot Plunket & Co., and that of 
George Spence, dealer in lumber, &eo » have 
been purchased, and we believe it is the 
intention of the Company to make things

ooper & Doxsee’s. 



N this department we are showing a very complete range comprising the 
very latest novelties, all in good standard and reliable makes. 

Lordered Dress Goods are the latest craze. We may say we-were a season 
in advance of the trade here in showing our elegant range of Bordered Goods 
for the spring trade. For fall trade our stock is simply magnificent, We are 
selling—not only showing, but selling, and selling freely, a line of Bordered 
Dress Goods at 65 cents per yard, which customers tell us other houses are 
asking $1 for... We offer better ranges of these goods Sup to $1.50 per yard. 
Lovely Goods. 

One of the members ef our firm visited the wholesale markets this week, 


We offer aline of All Wool Dress Goous in black and all the new color- 
ings at 20c., which ave cheap at 30c. We are offering a line of black and 
white large plaids, all wool Dress Goods, double fold, at 40c, worth $1 per 
yard. We are offering a line of Amazon Cloths, extra wide double-fold goods 
at 50c., which you cannot buy elsewhere less than 75 to 90c, 

We show a line of Pattern Dresses, containing 10 yards, tine French 
double-width Goods at $5, worth $10 ; a better line at $6, worth $12. 

N. B.—These two lines retail in Toronto at $10 and $12 each. Every 
yard of above at prices quoted is like buying dollar bills for 50 cents. A cus: 
tomer came to us the other day and said she paid $18 in town for a Robe, the 
very same as we are selling at $6. The very best evidence possible that our 
prices are way under the trade. Besides these special lines we are showing an 
immense range of Cashmeres, Henriettas, Foules, Amazon Cloths, Plaids, 
Stripes and Fancy Goods of every kind, quality and make, at very low prices. 


Is another great specialty with us. We do honestly believe we have sold more 
Mourning Dress Goods during the last year than any other three houses in 
Napanee, simply because we carry a very complete assortment of the finest 
and best makes of French, German and English Cashmere, Henriettas and Par- 
amatas in Silk and Wool Warps, and are cutting the prices down to the quick 
in each and eyery case. Another advantage in buying your Dress Goods from 
us is that you can by this means have them made np on the premises by Miss 
Sanderson, whose reputation as a thoroughly first-class Dressmaker is second 
to none in this section of Ontario. Hercharges are very moderate and her 
work beautifully finished and fit guaranteed. Our general stock of Dry Goods 
and furnishings throughout is equally as complete as the one line mentioned, 
but space will not permit our going into details,

We are too apt to take it for granted that 
boys are irreverent, thoughtless and ancouth 
by asort of a natural right, aud we there- 
fore excuse their faults of manner on the 
simple ground that they ate boys, Similarly, 
though to less degree, the manners of the 
girls are neglected, The consequence of all 
this is that the rudenéss and irreverence of 
American children have become a by-word 
all over the world, It may be that the pub- 
lic schools could do something to remedy 
this evil, but parents could do much more. 
And until they do their duty in the matter 
the efforts of teachers will be of little avail. 
The fact of the matter is that parents obey 
their children altogether too munch in this 
country. They do not look for respectful 
obedience from their children, and, of 
course, therefore they do not get it. Nor 
does anybody else get it, either, Strange 
as it may appear, there are parents who are 
actually proud of the rudeness and pertness 
of their children; they look upon it as an 
evidence of ‘‘smartness.” And in this way 
children are encouraged to make nuisances 
of themselves in public places. All this is as 
true of Canada as it is of the United States.

about his nature—something “lacking in 
guile about his perceptions,” Said a cyni- 
cal old captain of the regiment—and a 
jovial, sunshiny way of Iboking upon the 
world as an Eden, all-menand all women 
as friends, and the army as the profes- 
sion above all others, and these various 
attributes combined to make him popular 
with his kind afd unusually attractive 
to the opposite sex. As a cadet he had 
been perpetually on the verge of dismis- 
sal because of the appalling array of de- 
merits he could roll upagainst his name, 
and yet the very officers who jotted down 
the memoranda of his sins—omission 
and commission—against the regulations 
were men who openly said he “‘had the 
making of one of the finest soldiers in 
the class.” As junior second lieutenant 
—‘‘plebe"”—of the regiment, he had been 
welcomed by every man from the colonel 
down, and it was copsidered particularly 
rough that he should have to £o té such 
a company as Capt. Canker’s, becatse 
Canker was a man who never got along 
with any of his juniors; but there was 
something so irrepressibly frank and 
contrite in Perry's boyish face when he 
would’ appear at his, captain's door 
in the early morning and burst out 
with: “By Jove, captain! I slept 
through reveille again this morning, 
and never got down till stables 
were nearly over,” that even that cross 
grained but honest troop commiander 
was disarmed, and, though he threat- 
ened and reprimanded, he would never 
punish—would neyer deny his subaltern 
the faintest privilege; and when promo- 
tien took the captain to another regi- 
ment he bade good-by to Perry with eves 
that’ were suspiciously wet. “Why, 
blow it all, what do you fellows hate 
Canker so for?” the youngster often 
said, “He ought to put mein arrest 
time and again, but he won't. Blamed 
if I don't put myself in arrest, or confine 
myself to the limits of the post, and do 
something, to cut all this going to town 
and hops and such things. Then I can 
stick to the troop like wax and get up at 
reveille; butif I'm out dancing till 2 or

was always predicted of Ned Perr 
that he would be ‘married and pA

Every new face in the five years that 
followed revived the garrison proph- 
ecy, “Now he's gone, sure!” but, how-

his explanation of the phenomenon, and 
then ‘wonder why Perry hasn't ridden 
to cultivate the acquaintance of those | 
people before this. He was always the | 
first man in the —th to find out who our 
neighbors were.” 

Pondering over this question, it oc- 
curred to Mr. Parke that Perry had said 
he was going down the Monee that morn- 
ing; but nowhere was there a speck in | 
sight that looked like loping horseman. 
To be sure, the trail bore close to the low 
bluffs that bounded the valley on the 
north by the time one had ridden a mile 
or so out from the post. He was prob- 

The colonel could not help laughing. 
“Of course you can go—go wherever you 
like at those hours, when you are not on 
guard; but I never imagined you would 
want to get up so early.” 

“Neither I, would, colonel, but I've 
been interested in something I heard 
about this ranch down the Monee, and 
thought I'd like to ride down and look 

‘at it.” : 

“Go ahead, by all means, and see 
whether those lights came from tere. 
It made me think of a play I once saw— 
the ‘Colleen Bawn’—where a fellow’s 
sweetheart signaled across the lake by 
showing a light in her cottage window 
just that way three times, and he an- 
swered by turning out the lights in his 
room. Of course the distance wasn’t 
anything like this; and there was'no one 
here to turn down any light— Eh! what 
did you say?” 

“I beg pardon, colonel, I didn’t mean 
to interrupt,” put in a gentle voice at his 
elbow, while a little hand on Perry’s arm 
gave itasudden and vigorous squeeze, 
“but Capt. Lawrence has called me twice 
—he will not re-enter after lighting his 
cigar—and I must say good night.” 

“Oh, good night, Mrs, Lawrence. J’m 
sorry you goso early. We are going to 
reform you all in that respect as soon as 
we get farly settled. Here's Perry, now, 
would sit up and play whist with me an | 
hour yet.” 

“Not this night, colonel. He has prom- 
ised to walk home with us” (another 
squeeze), “‘and go he myst, or be a faith- 
less escort. Good night. We've had 
such a lovely, lovely time,” 

And Ned Perry, dazéd, went with her 
to the gate, where Capt. Lawrence was 
awaiting them. She had barely time to 

“You were just on the point of telling 
him about the doctor's lights. I cannot 
forgive myself for being the means of 

keep—this until everybody: is talking | 
about it; it will come soon enough.” 

Naturally, Mr. Perry went home some- 
what perturbed in spirit and all alive 
with conjecture as to what these things 
could mean, The first notes of ‘‘assem- 
blyof the trumpeters"”—generally known 
as “‘firstcall”—roused him from hissleep, 
and by the time the men marched out to 
the stables he had had his plunge bath, a 
vigorous rub and a chance to think oyer 
his plans before following in their tracks, 
dressed for his ride. The astonishment 
of Lieut, Parke, the junior of the troop, 
was something almost too deep for words 
when Perry came bounding to his side. 

“What on earth brings you out, Ned?” 
was his only effort. 

“Going for a gallop—down the Monee; 
that’s all. I haven't had a freshener for 
a week.” | 

“Gad! we get exercise enough at 
morning drill, one would think, and our 
horses too. Oh!"— And Mr. Parke

reached the bend, five miles.below, No 
use watching for him then. Besides, he 
might not yet have started. Mr, Parke” 
recalled the fact that he half-suspected 
a while ago that Ned was going to ride— 
an eafly ante-breakfast ride—with a 
lady friend. Mrs, Belknap had her own 

horse, and was an accomplished eques- 
trienne; Mrs. Lawrence rode fairly well, 
and was al glad to go, when some- 
body could give her a saddle and a reli- 

able mount. There were others, too, 
among the ladies of the infantry garrison 
Parke had no intention whatever of pry- 
ing into the matter. It was simply as 
something the officer in charge of stable 
duty was entitled to know that he turned 
suddenly and called: 

“Sergt. Gwynne!” 

He heard the name passed down the 
dark interior of the stable by the men 
sweeping out the stalls, and the prompt 
and cheery reply. The next instant a 
tall young trooper stepped forth into the 
blaze of early sunlight, his right hand | 
raised in salute, and stood erect and mo- 
tionless by the lieutenant’s side. 

“Did Mr. Perry take an extra horse, 

“No, sir.” 

“I thought possibly he meant to take 
Roland. He’s the best lady’s horse in the 
troop, is he not?” | 

“Yes, sir; but Roland is at the line | 

“Verv well, then. That's all. I pre- 
sume he has just ridden down to Dun- 
raven,” And Mr. Parke turned to look 
once,more at the glinting objects down 
the distantgvalley. It was a moment or 
two before he was aware of the fact that 
the sergeant still stood there, instead of 
returning to his duties, 

‘IT said that was all, sergeant; you can 
go back to your feeding.” And then 
Mr, Parke turned in. some surprise, for 
Sergt. Gwynne, by long odds the ‘‘smart- 
est” and most soldierly of the non-com- 
missioned officers of the cavalry battal- 
lion, for the first time in his history 
seemed to have forgotten himself. 
Though his attitude had not changed, 
his face had, and a strange look was in 
his bright blue eyes—a look of incre- 
dulity and wonderment and trouble’éll 
combined. The, lieutenant was fairly 
startled when, as though gathering him- 
self together, the sergeant falteringly | 

“I beg pardon, sir—he had ridden— 

“Down to the Ranch, sergeant—that | 
one you can just see, away down the

“Dunraven Ranch.” 

Foran instant the sergeant stood as 
though dazed, then, with sudden effort, 
saluted, faced about, and plunged into 
the dark recesses of the stable,

Just as Glad to See an Actor. 

Gen. Custer, Lawrence Barrett and 
Stuart Robson went over to Brooklyn 
yearsago to hear Mr. Beecher preach. 
After the sermon the three went around 
house of a friend where Mr, 
Beecher was to come immediately after 
church. They were seated in the parlor 
chatting as the great preacher came in. 
The names had been given to him in the 
hall, Assoon as he reached the thres- 
hold of the parlor door he said, ‘Mr. 
Robson!" The actor went over and ex- 
tended his hand, 

“Tam delighted to see you, delighted 
to see you. 
looking man than 1 expected to find.” 

“Oh, [am 45 years at least, Mr. Beech- 
er,” replied Robson, 

“Tshouldn't think it, sir; I shouldn't 
think: it. 
be secretary of the navy.” 

“Iam not Mr. Robson, the secretary 
of the navy, but Mr. Robson, the actor.” 

“Oh, it makes no difference,” said Mr. 
Beecher, “I am glad to see you notwith- 
standing my mistake.” 

But he lost no time in turning from 
him to pay court to Gen. Custer. As he 
had made a mistake on the political end 
he made up for it by paying court to the 
military hero until the discussion became 
general.—New York Star. 

Defect In Educational System. 

Perhaps the most serious defect of the 
system of liberal education now preva- 
lent in the United States is its lack of a 
truly progressive character. It is full of 
fits and starts. It is too disjointed and 
fragmentary. This is partly because 
there are no settled principles of pro- 
cedure, fixing the order and amounts of 
the studies; and partly because there is 
no power which can secure teachers that 
know precisely what they are expected, 
fitted and permitted to teach. The con- 
sequence is that the different years of 
school life too much resemble the differ- 
ent successive sessions of our legisla- 
tures. Milton somewhere describes the 
process of legislation as ‘‘hatching a lie 
with the heat of jurisdiction.” Fortun- 
ately, the process also consists in killing 
the brood of lies already hatched by pre- 
vious legislation. Now the process of 
education in this country is by no means 
so badin this regatd as the process of 
legislation; but in certain respects the 
former too much resembles the latter.— 
Professor George Trumbull Ladd, of 
Yale college, in Scribner. 

He Didn't Pronornnce It That Way. 

An old fellow from the country, who 
has plenty of money invested, some of it 
in an uptown hotel of the family sort, 
was approached on the first day of open- 
ing it by a natty young man with a de- 
bonair smile. 

‘Have you any rooms en suite?” he 

“Any what?” 

Rogms en suite.” 

“See here, young man, how many of 
them’ are you?” asked the granger. __ 

“Just me and Mamie—I mean my 
wife. We—we haven't been married 
long. She sent me around to see if you 
had any suites,” 

“Well, you go home and tell her te 
come right along. We've got plenty of 
rooms, and when you and she are in 
them they'll be too sweet for anything. 
If we haven't got rooms in sweets we'll 
have sweets in rooms. Come again, 
young feller."—New York News.

Berphardt’s Late Husband. 

He was known in European theatrical 
vircles as Daria, and, it is said, claimed 
to be acount. As he was born in Greece, 
where there are no titles except official 
ones, and in the royal family, he had no 
birthright to one. He has often been re- 
ferred to asa diplomat. His diplomatic 
experience was not very extensive, He 
was once connected with the Greek con- 
ulate for afew days through an acci- 
dent. His real vocation was that of a 
commercial traveler. The elder Damala 
was a er in raw silk, having a house 
in sai son ped tohave been 
unusually successful in disposing of the 
father’s wares. It is even said that he 
hadino right to his high sounding name 
—that he assumed’ **Aristides” for his 
own satisfaction, and that he was chris- 
tened as only ‘‘Jacques.” 

Damala was fond of gambling, and a 
swarm of creditors is believed to have 
hurried his marriage and to have fol- 
lowed him unrelentingly until he left for 
Barcelona. He was once mixed up in a 
gambling case with Lambri Pasha, but 
his friends say that he was never a black- 
leg. At the time of his marriage with 
Bernhardt nobody seemed to know 
whether his first wife was dead or not.

meals; they are particularly hygienic 
when eaten at breakfast. An orange

any philosophic reason for believing that

ing theory frequently causes me to lose 
all hope and belief in the investigation; 
but practice restores confidence. No one 
ean look at even a few hands every 
month for years together without being 
driven to the conclusion that they really 
do contain a guide to much that is to be 
found in the nature of their owners. As 
an actual fact, however, I find that the 
leading lines of the hand are nevpr eccen- 
trically deformed, broken or deficient in 
persons who have not some gaps or 
queer places in their characters, to 

If the lines are long, clear, red, gently 
curved, except the upright ones, few in 
number, and shown in a hand that has 
fingers with substantial tips and not too 
long roots, the best sort of nature may 
be looked for. In the case of persons of 
brilliant original talent and thought, the 
Uprig it line from the base of the palm 
toward the fingers is never absent and 
is sometimes repeated twice or even 
thrice. It is called the “line of Saturn,” 
and springs from many different places, 
In musicians, actors and some others it 
usually starts from below the little 
finger. When it is joined at the base to 
the curved line round the thumb an in- 
dependence of feeling out of proportion 
to the will strength or the pride of the 
rest of the characteris to be expected.

crosses the hand from above the thumb,

hold it at arms’ length, slowly shake his 
headend then crumple thé dispatch in 
his hand and try it all over again. On 
the sixth round a glad smile told that he 
| h&d written the thing to his satisfaction, 
and the next moment he approached the 
| nightclerk and timidly asked the charges 
to Kalamazoo. 

A wan smile crept over the erstwhile 
calm and prosaic face of the clerk as the 
customer took his change and hastily slid 
out the side door, 

As the reporter approached the smile 

“I thoughtso,” said the clerk slowly 
as he glanced about the office to see that 
no one wa about. 

“You did?” said the reporter, gently 
yet firmly. 

“Yes. This is the fourth one to-night, 
too. Listen,” he added, as he pinned his 
merciless gaze on the blushing night 
message for Kalamazoo: 

***The little stranger arrived safely to- 
day. Twelve pounds. Julia doing fine- 
ly. It'saboy. Kindly name your bev- 
erage and send damages to CHARLEY.’ 
“*Yes,” went on the clerk, speaking as 
though he were equal to the occasion, 
“this is plainly Charley's first son and 
heir, He is in ecstasies and hastens 
down here to notify the old folks at 
home. Did you notice how many times 
he tore up the blanks before he seemed 
satisfied with what he had written? All 
the young fellows act that way. It’sa 
very ticklish place to put a young man 
in, and being his first offense, he doesn’t 
know exactly how to word the news so 
that he will make a neat and ornamental 
message, as it were. Charley seems to 
be quite an artist though, and I think 
you'll agree with me that he led up to 
the climax very well indeed. He almost 

from the line that surrounds the thumb, 
the whole character will be modified, 
whether it be a good or bad one, by this 
separation. Asa rule that modification 
will tend to make the person seem more 
clever when thinking out of his own 
head, but less able, however sympathetic 
and docile, to adopt the modesof getting 
at ideas by which his teachers achieve 
their success, : 4 
A short little finger often goes with 
a sweetness, a readiness to repent of evil 
and of anger, and sometimea, even a 
cheerful abnegation. Both kinds are 
consistent with a permanence of nega- 
% as if is’ usually called, 
obstinacy, as this is a Quality capable of 
drawing strength from many sources. A 
large ended thumb is very good in a 
good man, and helps him to fight the 
battle of life. In a dull and selfish man 
it enables him to be extra oppressive at 

more effect than their value warrants. 
A thumb whose end is large and its shaft 
poor, as though it were a door handle 
with a weak neck and could be twisted 
off the hand, is not an advantage... This 
leads to many evils, and, though often 
found ina good man, gives a tendency 
to change the reasons for his good deeds 
or good opinions, even after he has been 
emphatic in choosing or defending then. 
Such change will usually be rather of 
the nature of a reversal than a drifting’ 
away. : . 

Blunt ended thumbs seldom go with a 
natural tendency to politeness of address 
ora polished approach, except when, as 
in persons much before the world, this 
has been learned asa part. But in good 
types it goes with a gentleness and kind- 
ness of manner bred by self knowledge 
which has taught the owner to counter- 
act his faults before. they have time to 
hurt innocent peopl®. It follows asa 
matter of course that among women 
those whose fingers and thumbs are 
pointed are generally the more super- 
ficially charming. Those with large, 
blunt ended fingers are (if intellectual 
and educated) more valued and more 
impressive, and even commanding, But 
command, like melancholy, has, more 
than one origin, viewed as an expression 
of constitutional tendency. 

Pointed fingered people hayeno excuse 
if they are not agreeable, for it costs 
them little to seem so, If large ended 
blunt fingered people show delicate dis: = 
cernment, self abnegation in mental 
matters, indulgence to shallow weak- 
ness, patience with anger and folly, they 
are either entirely uninterested’ person- 


qualities before them, or have bought 
their good nature at a price, like the 
Centurion his freedom, 

When a student of the hand has read 
and applied for himself all the volumes 
that have been written on the subject, 
and when he has also discovered how to 
discount the bias of his different authors 
by guessing at their hands and account- 
ing for their predilections, and when he 
has achieved such proficiency in looking 
at a hand and adding up all the conflict- 
ing forces suggested by its balance of 
lines and segments that he can at once 
tell how to classify the owner and what 
to expect of him, yet the greatest of all 
difficulties will remain to be surmounted. 
This hard hill toclimb is nothing less 
than to describe a character in 
terms that the owner of the same must 
confess his portrait and say, ‘'Yes, it is 
true; Iam like that.”—Edwin Ellis in 
Universal Review.

Mothers Inflict Torture on Their Lite Ones 
So That Their Feet May Look Pretty. 
“Now stamp down your foot, dear. That's |

u take my advice,” 
began the shoemaker, but madam cut him | 
off with— | 

“T want a smaller shoe. 
a sack.” | 

The smaller shoes were put on the child, a | 
pretty little tot of about 2 years of age. 
They fitted tightly and showed that the foot 
was a yery small one, but they pinched the 
child and made it cry. 

‘Mothers exhibit more vanity than judg- 
ment in their selection of shoes for their 
young children,” said the shoe dealer, after | 
the lady had disappeared, to a reporter who 
wanted a pair of russet ties. *‘One will bring 
her’ baby here and try a pair of shoes on it 
that will look ‘real sweet.’ 1 know what 
that means and am always sorry for the 
baby, who is usually in its first short dress, 
and as skittish as an old maid about having 
its feet interfered with. 1 don’t say 1 ami

well as one can when the foot is operated by

baby she will be indignant and say that she 
does not want the treasure to look sloppy. in 
his shoes. They must fit exactly or she won't 
take them. I tell her that the child's weight

‘Now, then, here’s another handed to 
me just a little while ago. This is en- 
tirely in a different’vein. It is addressed 
to a gentleman in Toledo, perhaps an old 
chum: a 

“*Well! well! well! Itold youso! I 
shall name him after you. He will run 
for president in 1924, or my name is not 

‘Tom JACK.’ 

“Now, that’s what I call neat,” said 
the clerk, as he laid aside the tender 
message destined soon to gladden some 
heart in far off Toledo. ‘One cannot 
help but admire Tom Jack’s delicate 
epee of,humor, He spares himself the 
embarrassment of saying anything about 
the little angel's sex. He doesn’t say 
whether Sally is doing well or not; Tom 
Jack is too much elated to think of these 
thingsnow. A year or so hence he may 
come in again, but his dispatch won’t be 
so intrepid. Later still, when the family 
circle is extended so that the hired girl 
puts a couple of extra boards in the table 
for dinner every day—well, Tom Jack, 
the prosaic family man, with expenses 
running higher and higher year by year, 
won't be in such a tremendous hurry to 
turn loose the electricity for arrival No. 
7, Wecanall wager the nimble dollar 
on that, : 
“Shall I read the other two? 
they're not quite so demonstrative, 

*“*Baby came to us this morning, Blue 
eyes like its mother. Mother mending 
rapidly. : Jm.’ 
“And the other reads: 
“Our daughter joined us this morn- 
ing at 10:20, Will you come to christen- 
ing? Irene sends love to father. 

, ““Freppy J.’ 
“You can see by these that there is 
quite a literature in the’ birth message. 
The main points that séem to agitate the 
fond young papa’s breast are to tell the 
little story fully, yet suppress any direct 
statements, They are really more abash- 
ed at the clerks behind the counter than 
youwould readily imagine. It’s always 
agreat mental torture to ’em when 1 
slowly count over the words offe at a 
time, It makes them squirm to think 
that their handwriting might not be 
plain, and that I might roar out the dis- 
patch and ask them if it’s allright as I 
read it.. But I'ye too much considera- 
tion for human nature to do that; and 
whenever I see a young fellow sidle into 
the office, cautiously graspa pen and ex- 
periment on half a dozen blanks, my ex- 
perience tells me at once what’s in the 
wind, and I am careful to let him depart 
in peace through the side door in the 
shortest possible time.” 

And as the reporter was moying off 
the clerk picked “up another blank and 
read it over softly to himself. There 
was no smile on his lips this time as he 
turned to the scribe and said slowly: 

‘Here's another message, side by side 
with the little harbinger of gladness I 
read you a moment before. It’s only a 
line, but there is nothing so eloquent as 
death. Listen: 

“‘John died when the tide went out 
to-night.’”"—Detroit Free Press, 


auinch and that the shoe is just right. If 
she objects again I give up and find what she 
wants. The little foot is squeezed into a tight f 
shod aiid the baby objects by squalling. She 
says the seraph is teething or husn’t had its 
usual ‘nap, and declares the shoes are just 
lovely and papa will be delighted. 

“The chances are that when she wants an- 
other pair she will leave the baby at home, 
and bring down the old pair literally burst 
out at the toes. She wants several pairs to 
take home for trial, and ] notice that theonly 
ones I consider unsuitable she selects. Chil- 
dre would have better looking feet if they 
-had wise mothers, and the fault lies in the 
first shoes worn. One pair too short will ruin 
the feet, no matter how loose subsequent ones 
may be.” 

“Then some women accept your advice?” 

“Yes, after the little people have laid the 
foundation for corns and bunions, I know 
many children between the ages of two and 
three years who have both these afflictions be- 
cause their mothers wanted them to look 

“Ts there no change in the shape of chil- 
dren’s shoes?” 4 

“None. There can’t well be, because the 
sole must be sufficiently broad to stan! the 
wear and tear. Square toes ate preferred to, 
round, because they allow freer development 
of the toes, In European countries they 
make very stylish shoes for children. They 
will have heels, pofnted toes, patent leather 
tips and so forth. Some mothers buy them 
here, but the plain common sense shoe is the 
best, and the children, when they grow up, 
will appreciato the fact by having perfectly 
formed feet, free from’ corns. The spring 
heel introduced a few years ago is now worn 
by children as young as two years old, but is 
more fashionable for children in their teens. 
Ivis nothing buta strip of leather inserted be- 
tween the soleand that part of the shoe press- 
ed by the wearer's heel. It is seldom that a 
smaller than No. 8 is made with a regular 
heel, and that on the commoni sense plan— 
low and broad.” 

‘‘How are babies’ shoes numbered?” 

“No. 4 is the first sizeout of babyhood. No, 
0 has a soft sole of white kid and pasteboard, 
and is the successor of the knit wool boots 
that are worn by babies in long dresses. Nos. 
1, 2 and & have whatds called the turned sole, 
sewed together on the wrong side and turned 
out, There are from four to flve buttons on 
the sido, and a black tassel is now fastened at 
the top in front. The latest isto have a vamp

The Bell Piano in use at the Toronto Col 
lege of Music has proved to be a very satis”

(Signed) F, H, Torrineron. 
Director, Toronto College of Music, 

BELLEVILLE, Feb. 20th., 1889, 

Dear Sir :—The Bell Piano which I bought 
trom you a few months ago continues to give 
great satisfaction, Its depth of tone, and 
power, its brilliancy and sweetness make it 
always a delight to play upon, There is 
that peculiar ‘‘singing” tone about its notes 
As regards 
the mechanical work and finish of the case 
and action, they seem to be above criticism. 
Indeed I have never yet seen a Canadian 

| Piano and very few American ones, which 

would at all compare in my ostimation with 
the ‘*Bell Piano.”’ My opinion of that Pio 

however, is shown by the fact that I have | 

selected one of them, in preference to all 
others for my OWN USK AND PLEASURE, 
I am Sir, 
Yours truly,

S. Mark’s Church Notes. 

Next Sunday is the 17th after Trinity and 
the Friday following, Oct. 18, St. Luke the 
Evangelist’s Day. Next ‘Sunday being the 
2nd Sunday in the month, the clergy of S. 
Mark’s would be glad to administer the 
Sacrament of Holy Baptism at morning or 
evening service, or at 3.30 in the afternoon. 
Baptism will be performed at any time, yet 
as it is convenient to havea specified Sunday 
in accordance with a prevailing custom, the 
second Sunday in each month will, when 

oasible, be observed asa Baptismal Sunday. 
Vorkmen have been busy during the past 
week in placing glues in the tower windows 
and in making other preparations for 
approaching winter, The Sanday School 
‘feachers’ meeting and Scriptural Instruction 
Class will meet as usual in 5. Mark’s Hall 
(basement) on Friday evenings at 7.45 p. 
m., and the Adult Bible Class in S. Mark’s 
Charch on Sunday afternoons at 2.45 ; all 
are invited to attend, Suggestions have 
come from several quarters touching a 
revival of the Guild of S. Mark, In view of 
an approaching financial engagement, the 
wardens would respectfully intimate to the 
congregation that the resets of any out 
standing church dues would prose very 
acceptable at this time, while (if permitted) 
they might further just whisper to con- 
tributors and to all who attend the services 
how welcome a little increase in the regular 
Sunday offerings would prove. 



During the John Brown raid at Harper's 
Ferry, while Brown held the armory-yard 
and engine-house, he had pickets stationed 
at different points commanding the ap- 

roaches. John Brown’s right-hand man, 

ieutenant Stevens, with four men, held the 
end of the bridge which crosses the Potomac 
until they were driven thence by the citizens 
of ‘Harper’s Ferry. ‘They then retreated 
toward the engine-house, held by John 
Brown. Meanwhile ten or twelve men 
(citizens) entered the Gault House, by means 
of the rear entrance, and by firing from the 
windows and doorways of the bar-room of 
the saloon, they were able to command the 
street from the bridge to the engine-house, 
‘As Stevens and party retreated along this 
street tney were fired upon by the men in 
the Gault House, and one of the men, 
Thompson by name, fell, 

Stephens did not know this until he reach- 
ed tho engine-house, Nothing daunted, in 
the face of almost certain deaths, he returned 
alone and tried to carry hia friend and 
comrade, Thompson, away. He was fired 
at and fell badly wounded, but not before 
he returned the fire, He and Thompson 
were then carried into the Shenavdoah 
Hotel, Then Thompson was immediately 
taken out on the bridge and killed and his 
body thtown into the river, The crowd 
then returned for Stephens, Just as they 
entered the room Mrs, Foulke, the wife of 
the landlord, entered, and with the tender 
heart and love of a woman, pleaded with the 
crowd to spare Stevens’ life, Stevens, 
supposing that they were going to kill him 
then and there, with an effort raised him- 
self on hia elbow and said: ‘Gentleman, 
haye respect for the lady do not kill me in 
her presence, but take me out and kill me.” 
His bravery saved his life for the time, He 
was tuken to Charlestown, and afterwards 
tried, convicted and hanged, He mounted

~ for years has been vonspicnous by its abse: 

When the maple tagns to crimson, 
And the sasaafras to gold ; 
Whea the gentian’s in the meadow 
And the aster in the wold : 
When the moon is lapped iu vapor, 
And the night is frosty cold ; 

When the chestnut burrs are opener’, 
And the acorns drop like hail, 

When the drowsy air is startled 
With the thumping of the flail 

With the drumming of the partridge, 
And the whistle of the quail, 

Through the rustling woods I wander, 
Through the jewels of the year, 

From the yellow uplands calling, 
Seeking her who still is dear ; 

She is near me in the autumn, 
She, the beautiful, is near. 

Through the smoke of burning summer, 
When the weary wings are still, 
Ioan see her in the valley, 
T can hear her on the hill,’ 
In the splendor of the woodlands, 
In the whisper of the rill. 

For the shores of earth and heaven 
Meet, and mingle in the blue ; 
She can wander down the glory 
To the places that she knew, 
Where the 24 lovers wandered 
Tn the days when Life was true. 

So I think when the days are sweetest, 
And the world is wholly fuir, 

She may sometimes steal upon me, 
Through the dimuess of the, 

With the cross upon her bosom, 
And the amaranth in her hair, 

Once to her, ah ! to meet her, 
And to hold her gently fast, 
Till I blessed her, till she blessed me-— 
That were happiness at last, 
That were bliss beyond our meetings 
In the autumn of the past.

The aurora borealis is a phenomenon that

ro long ago, when the northern heavens pre- 
sented a spectacle of weird, bewildering

the sun and the air are the same, to all ap- 
pearances, Yet the borean horizon is inno~ 
cent of its shifting canopy of northern lights, 
Nor has there been any reason given by 
scientific men for this disappearance, Big

eppesrance has been in former years found’ 
to be coeval with the aurors, but the rule 
has not held good for u decade, Haye the

It does not seem to be generally un ler- 
stood that nearly all varieties of cuttiogs can 
be easily callused or rooted before it is time 
to plant them in the spring. he cuttings 
are made in autumn, alter the leaves full, 
and tied firmly in little banches of fifty or 
one hundredeach, Each bundle shou)d be 
marked by using two slips of pine, painted 
one side with white lead, or yellow ochre, 
and the name distinctly written with a lead 
pencil in the fresh paint, This is covered by 
the other slip, and the two are tied together 
with a piece of thread. This is firmly tied 
in the bundle, and it will not be necessary to 
guess at the name of the cuttings. They are 
stored through the winter either by placing 
| on a bed of moist earth, butt end down, or 
in a trench two feet wide and four inches 
deeper than the height of the cuttings. The 
cuttings are placed compactly in this trench, 
butt end up, and covered with three or four 
inches of rich garden soil. When the ground 
begins to freeze they are covered deeply with 
stuble manure, straw, or leaves, gputting on 
enough to keep the frost from cuttings, 
In the spring this manure is removed, and 
the soil over the cuttings leveled. If it gets 
dry it is sprinkled with water and kept 
moist, but not wet, and when the time comes 
to plant them, most varieties will have good 
roots started, while the buds are dormant 
and when planted they are more sure to grow 
than if not sotreated. ‘he trench should be 
made on ground where water does not stand. 
For some of the choicer varieties of grapes, 
or other cuttings wanted early, a cold frame 
placed over the trench in the spring, after 
the manure is taken off, will forward them 
several days earlier.—American Agricultur- 
ist for October. 

The Jerseys, Guernseys, Ayrshires and the 
Holstein. Friesians have the dairy form clear 
ly depicted, in contradistinction to the beef 

horn, the Hereford, Aberdeen-Angus and the 
Galloway. The dairy form, as will be seen, 

room for a large, cious udder, which 
good milkers possess and require, because the 
feed consumed by an animal having the well- 
developed dairy form is converted into milk. 
On the other hand, an animal having the 
beef form has a large, full loin, heavy, round 
plump hams, and usually a small udder, be- 
cause the food consumed by a well-develop- 
ed beef animal is convertec into beef, and it 
has some place to store it. 

‘Ve all know that if we turn into the same 
esture a sheep, a pig and a cow with good 
airy form and a cow with good beef form, 

we get as a result wool, pork, milk and 
beet from the same kind of feed, This is not 
saying that we would not get some milk and 
some beef from both’ cows, but the close 
observer knows that he could not get milk in 
paying quantity from a beef cow, nor beef in 
& paying quantity from the dairy form. 
Most men’s heads are level on other subjects 
than cows. No horseman worthy of the 
name would look for a draft horse among the 
speed form of horses or for speed among the 
Percherons or Clydesdales, If a man wants 
a trotting sulky, he does not fool away his 
time experimenting with a dump cart,—

“Those people are clay eters.” 

The people re ferred to were a group of 
men and women of various ages who 

had gathered at a country store in Win-

condition in any way. The storekeeper 
after attending to the wants of these 
strange customers, informed the writer 
that they belonged to the poorest chuss 
of mountaineers who inhabited that sec- 
tion, and that white clay was a part of 
their regular diet 

The writer spent several days in Win- 
ston county recently and visited the 
homes of a number of these people who 
eat clay as a part of their daily food. 
They live in small log cabins of the rud- 
est kind, and eke out a miserable exist- 
ence by farming, hunting and fishing. 
Their farms, or patches as they call 
thom, are sfhall clearings around their 
cabins, and are never more than a few 
acres in extent. ‘Their crops consist of 
corn, peas, potatoes, and a few who are 
fortunate enough to own a horse attempt 
to raise a little cotton, The land is very 
poor, and as the crops receive little work 
the yield is alwa y poor, Men, 
women und children are slaves to the 
tobacco habit. The women chew and 
smoke, and most of theni also use snuff 
when they can obtain it,

A story is told of an old Quaker lady 
who was informed by a wildly excited 
man that her house was on fire. 

“Tt is?’ she said, rising calmly and 
dropping her knitting into her pocket, 
after she had carefully wound the loose 

yarn. ‘I thank thee for thy informa-

Early Bridges. 

The first bridges were of wood, and 
the earliest of which we have any ac- 
count was built in Rome 500 years B. C. 
The next was erected by Julius Cesar 
for the passage of his army across the 
Rhine. .Trajan’s great bridge over the 
Danube, 4,770 feet long. was made of 
timber, with stone piers. The Romans 
also built the first stone bridge, which 
crossed the Tiber. Suspension bridges are 
of remote origin. A Chinese one men- 
tioned by Kirchga, made of chains sup- 
porting a roadway 830 feet in length, was 
built A. D, 65, and is still to be seen. 
The first large iron bridge was erected 
over the Severn in 1777.—Chicago Ledger. 

Collecting Tax. 

A man named Frye, who lived on 
Tinker’s Island, used to be the town col- 
lector of Mt. Desert. If he didn’t get his 
money the Grst time he called, he had 
an original way of helping the delin- 
quent to remember that he would come 
again. Taking a piece of chalk from 
his pocket, he would write the word 
“Tax” on the evoodwork of the room in 
large Ictters;.and the authority of the 
official is said 40 have been acknowleged 
80 well that the chalk was allowed to re-

er is rude in the extreme, The cabin is 
usually built of small pine logs, from 
which the bark is sometimes removed. 
There are no windows and usually only 
one door. There are no pictures on the 
walls, no ornaments of any kind and 
often no furniture worthy of the name. 
If there are bedsteads they are of the 
crudest kind, made by the head of the 
family with no other tools than a saw 
and an ax. Usually the cabin is too 
small for bedsteads if the family is large, 
and. they sleep on quilts and mattresses 
spread on the floor, ‘The entire family, 
often ten or more persons, eat and sleep 
in one small rool. The éooking is done 
in the one tireplace, the atensils consist- 
ing of a frying pan, a kettle, an oven 
and possibly a few pots. Cooking stoves, 
sewing machinesiand all modern conven- 
iences are unknown, 

‘The clay eaten by these people is found 
along the banks of the small mountain 
streams in inexhaustible quantities. Itis 
of a dirty white color usually; sometimes 
a pate yellow, It hasa peculiarly oily 
appearance, and this oil keeps it from 
sticking to the hands or mouth. When 
dry it does not crumble, and a few drops 
of water will easily soften it until it can be 
rolled intoany shape desired. Itis almost 
without taste, but niust possess some 
nourishment, as these people declare they 
can subsist upon it for days. They place 
asmal] piece in the mouth and hold it 
there until it gradually dissolves, and is 
swallowed in small quantities at a time. 
The quantity eaten at one time varies 
from a lump as large asa pea for the 
child or beginner to a lump as large as 
a hen’s egg for those who have eaten it 
for years. 


“How did you learn to eat clay?’ 1 
asked of aiman whose face was almost 
the color of the stuff le was eating. 

“Dunno,” he answered. “I seen pap 
and t’others eatin’ it, un’ | got at it.” 

Does the habit grow until you acquire 
a taste for the stuff?” 


“Can you quit eating clay?” 

“Dunno; never tried,” 

“Has the stuff a pleasant taste?” 

“If ‘twant good I wouldn't be eatin’ it,” 
and the native drew a second lump from 
his pocket and began to eat it witha 

The only bad effect of clay eating seems 
to be the peculiar appearance it gives the 
skin of those who become addicted to the 
habit. The skin turns pale, so pale, in 
fact, as to give the face the pallor of 
death, and then, later on, it turns a pe- 
culiar pale yellow, a color closely re- 
sembling some of the clay eaten. Chil- 
dren who beconie addicted to the habit 
grow old, at least in appearance, prema- 
turely, and their faces lose forever the 
bright glow of youth and health, There 
ig little sickness ainong the clay eaters, 
and they live as long as the average of 
mankind, so it is conclusive that the 
habit is not fatal in its effects. 

It may or may not be the result of clay 
eating, but these people are as supersti- 
tious'as the black followers of a voodoo. 
They have sighs for everything and sal- 

most worship the moon. Corn is planted 
when the moon is full and potatoes are 
planted in the dark of the moon, They 
will not start on a journey or begin a job

tell sforms and all kinds of disasters by 
the appearance of the moon. If one end 
of a new moon is lower tlian the other it 

will rain before the moon changes again,

On Thelr Heads. 
In France, when a putient is under 

chloroform, on the slightest symptom 
appearing of failure of the heart, they 
turn him nearly upside down, that 
is, with his head downward and his 
heels in the air, This, they say, alway 
restores him; and such is their faith in 
the efficacy of this method, that the op 
erating tables in the Paris hospitals are

Diseike of the Heart. 

In diseases of the heart which persist 
for a long time and finally end, as a very 
large proportion of them do, in slow de 

cline and a lingering death, dropsy. al- 

ways sets in. In the late stages it isa 
most intractable symptom, and adds 
greatly to the suffering experienced, In 
the treatment, physicians have been 
wont to depend largely upon a diet of 
milk, which, in cases where it is well | 
borne and can be persisted in, always acts | 
well. But there are many patients who, | 

for various reasons, cannot be kept on a | 

milk diet for any length of time, To 
some it becomes abhorrent after a while, | 
| and others really cannot digest it prop- | 

erly, as siinple food as it is. And besides | 

that, a mill diet is really unsuited to no | 
small proportion of patients affected with | 
cardiac diseases. We have reference to | 
| those who cannot be kept quiet, but in- 
| sist upon being up and about, often in | 
| the open air, if not engaged in light 
| duties 

Professor German See, of Paris, has 
long been engaged in study to learn 
what elements in milk render it such a: 
admirable agent to stimulate the kid- 
neys, increase the flow therefrom and 
hence prove of such great service in 
dropsies. Asaresult of his invest 
tion he is convinced that the one ir 
portant element is sugar of milk, Acting 
upon that theory he selected twenty-five 
patients with heart disease, in all of 
which there was more or less dropsy. 
Toeach he gave 100 grammes of the 
sugar of mill a day, dissolved in two 
quarts of water, In all these cases a 
marked effect upon the kidneys was felt 
within from twenty-four to forty-five 
hours, and the dropsies diminished rap- 
idly, and almost all such swellings dis- 
appeared altogether after a series of 
treatments lasting from six to eight 
das This discovery is likely to prove 
one of the most important which has 
been made in the medical world for 
year's.—Boston Herald, 

Ape and Looking Glass, 

A looking glass is a mystery, an ob- 
ject of intense interest to many animals, 
and it is often very amusing to watch 
their maneuvers. Professor C. Robert- 
son describes the behavior of a large ape 
in the Jardin des Plantes. 

He was in an iron cage lording it over 
some smaller monkeys, Ferns and other 
things had been thrown ‘between the 
bars, which thé ape attempted to seize. 
At length a small hand looking glass, 
with astrong Wooden frame, was thrown | - 
in. The ape got hold of it and began to 
brandish it like a hammer, when sud- 
denly he was arrested by the reflection 
of himself in the glass. 

After looking puzzled for a, moment, 
he darted his head behind the glass to 
find the other ape, which he evidently 
supposed to be there. Finding nothing, 
he apparently thought that he had not 
been quick enough in his moyements. 
So he raised and drew the glass nearer 
to him with great caution, and then, 
with a swifter dart, looked behind; and 
again finding nothing, he made the at- 
tenipt once more, 

He now grew very angry, and began 
to beat the frame violently on the floor 
of his cage. Soon the glass was shat- 
tered, and pieces fell out. Again he was 
arrested by his own image in the piece 
of glass still remaining in the frame, and 
he resolved to try again. More carefully 
than ever he began, and more rapidly 
than ever was the final dart made, 

His fury over this last failure knew 
no bounds, and he crunched the frame 
and glass together with his teeth till 
nothing but splinters remained.—Youth’s 

A Duateh Tjatk, 

ively built of varnished 
60 bluff as to be almost 
square, a straight sided box, made, like 
all Dutch craft, to slide over the water 
rather than through it, and with im- 
mengse wing like lee boards on each side 
to let down and supply the place of a 
keel when going to windward, A tall 
mast bore a lofty narrow headed main- 
sail with a short curved gaff, and a fore- 
staysail from the bow. The great rudder 
bore along its upper edge a grotesquely 
carved and gayly painted lion couchant, 
the most common of all the rudder decor- 
ations and of as xnuch impe@tance as the 
familiar figurehead in seagoing ships. 
Hull and spars were brightly varnished, 
with casings of polished brass, and rings 
and scrolls of red and blue paint wher- 
ever there was room. Tlie staves of the 
water barrels were green and white, and 
marvelous landscapes were painted on 
the ends. There was a neat raised cabin 
at the stern, gayly orhamented in green 
and yellow, with little white curtained 
flower decked windows, through which 
one caught glimpses of a spotless doll’s 
house interior, with shining pots and 
pans and quaint shapes of blue and brown 
earthen vessels. Of course all the items 
of household life—cooking, washing, the

Saying a Life. 

An old soldier, a lieutenant during the 
civil war, was walking down the street 
of atown when he was accosted bya 
fellow, half soldier, half beggar, who 
made him a most reverential salute. 

“God bless your honor,” said the man,

man, ‘God bless you and long life to

into the fellow’s hand, and asked him

Painful Accident, 

One day last week the daughter of Mr. 
Wilson Dafoe, of Richmond, was left alone in 
the house, and during the absence of the 
family she obtained a rifle cartridge which 
she attempted to open. The cartridge ex- 
ploded and the thumb of her right hand was 
almost entirely torn away, two of the fiagers 
were blown off between the second and third 
joints and the other two fingers destroyed to 
the first joint. The Jittle child, who is only 
eleven yeurs of age, walked a mile and a 
half to have the lacerated hand attended to,

rate by Dennis Lake ran with great force 
against a team of horses owned by Mr.

sulky struck one of the team in the shoulder 
inflicting a serious wound, Lake's horse 
was thrown by the force of the collision 
ainong a crowd of bystanders. It was 
fortunately caught before any more damage 
was done, Mr. Matthew Hill got a rude

the animal rushed in its mad career,

Breaking the Record. 

It is only two weeks ago that we recorded 
the great record of the lath department of 
the Big Mill of the Rathbun Company. 
That department we stated had beat all 

revious records by cutting in six days 
609,000 pieces of lath, av average each day 
of 101,500 pieces, the largest cut in one day 
being 109,000 pieces. ast week, ending 
Oct. 5th, this same department beat even 
that great record by cutting iu the six days 
the immense aggregate of 658,000 pieces, an 
average per day of 108,800 pieces, the 
largest cut in one day being 123,000 pieces. 
This is most remarkable work and has prob: 
ably never been equalled elsewhere. THE 
Trinune congratulates Mr. M. C, Dunn, 
Mr. Fred Burr, and all the hands in this 
dopartment of the Big Mill on this great 

Annual Gaol Report, 

The annual report for the Hastings County 
goal for the year ending Oct, first is os 
follows: Number of prisoners confined dur- 
ing the year was 222, for insanity 17. This 
latter is the largest number that was ever 
committed from Hastings in the history of 
the institution. No. sent to Central prison 
12; penitentiary 7; No. died in jail 3; 
Nationalities, Canadions 158; English 20; 
Irish 28 ;;Scotch 7 ; United States 5; other 
countries 4; religious denominations, Rom- 
an Catholic 60; Church of England 59; 
Presbyterian 13; Methodist 83; others 7. 
Temperate 112; intemperate 110; daily 
costs per prisoner for rations 6} cents. 
Grewtest number of persons confined in gaol 
at uny one time, 34 ; lowest number 10. The 
principal offences were arson, ussault, burg- 
lary, drunk and disorderly, giving liquor to 
Indians, horse stealing, larceny and yagran- 
cy. The number of prisoners confined in 
1888 were 250, 

Remarkable Utterances, 
Mr..G. R, Parkin, the sentimental and 

gushiog New Brunswick orator, who went to 
Australia to convert the peoplo of that coun- 

| hunted, taken or killed between Noyombor 

try to the scheme of Imperial Federation, is 
meeting with about as little success there as 
he did in Canada. In the New South Wales 
Legislature Sir Henry Parkes, premier of 
that colony, and Mr, Dibbs, leader of the 
opposition, said that Australia was on the 
high road to becoming a great independent 
power. ‘The latter stated that he foresaw 
the time when Australia would be a great 
Republic “willing to be the ally of England, 
but determined to be a nation as free as 
England herself.” ‘These are the vieyys also 
of Hon, Mr. MolIlwraith, Premier of Queens- 
land, the most able of Australian statesmen, 
This, it is quite unnecessary to add, does not 
mean unfriendliness to the mother counfry, 
for Australians are eminently loyal, but it 
proves that English speaking people do not 
care long to occupy the secondary position 
of colonists.

Our Lindsay cor ondent, under date of 
the 10th inst., writes as follows: 

‘SA shingle mill owned by Jno. Dorey, of 
| this place, wos the scene of a terrible 
| acc ident this nox g at twenty minutes to 
| six o'clock, which proved fatal to the only 

inan, (the fireman), that was aronnd the 
mill at the time. Had the explosion taken 
place twenty minutes later, when the mill 
hands would have been at work, there is 
hardly a doubt but that every man in’ or 
around the mill would haye been killed, 
The explosion was so arent that several plate 
| glass windows in the town nearly half a 

mile from the mill were broken to pieces.

on the opposite side of the river and carrying

boiler and pipes were found at a distance of 
oyer one third of a mile from the mill, The 
mill building itself was completely demolish- 
ed and not a vestige of the engine house 
| remains tobeseen, As the only man around 
the place was killed the cause of the accident 
is unknown but itis supposed to have been 
caused by the fireman ignorantly putting 
| cold water in the boiler after it was heated. 
The unfortunate man was found about 30 ft 
from the engine house with part of the 
injector still in his hand. A large niece of 
iron had gone through his head killing him 
instantly. A box car standing on a switch 
about 50 ft from the mill was badly wrecked 
bricks and picces of steam pipes having gone 
completely through it fromend to end, The 
scene has been photographed by several 
parties and visited by thousands. Aninquest 
is being held to-day and it willno donbt be 
shown that the explosion was catsed by a 
leakage in the boiler and the inexperience of 
the fireman.

A Story of American® Frontier Life. 





Copyrighted, 1888, by J. B. Lippincott Company, Philadelphia, and Published by 
Special Arrangement through the American Press Association, 


ANTIME Lieut. Perry 
(wasriding blithely down 
the winding trail, total- 
ly unconscious that his 
movements were of the 

their being a source of 
GN speculation, His horse 
was one he rejoiced in, 
full of spirit and spring and intelligence; 
the morning was beautiful, just cool 
enough to be exhilarating; his favorite 
_ hound, Bruce, went bounding over the 
turf under the slopes, or ranging off 
throuch the cottonwoods alonz the 
stream, or the shallow, sandy arroyos, 
where the grass and weeds grew rank 
and luxuriant. Every now and then 
with sudden rush and whir a drove of 
prairie chickens would leap from their 
covert, and, after vigorous flapping of 
wings for a few rods, would go skim- 
ming restfully in long easy curve, and 
settle to earth again a hundred yards 
away, as though suddenly reminded of 
the fact that this was mating time and 
no concn would be mean enough to 
shoot at such a season. 
Every little while, too, with prodigious 
kicking of dust and show of heels, with 
‘eyes fairly bulging out of his feather 
brained head, and tall lop ears laid flat 
on his back, a big jack rabbit would 
bound off into space, and go tearing 
across the prairie in mad race for his 
threatened life, putting a mile between 
him and the Monee before he began to 
realize that the two quadrupeds ambling 
along the distant trail were obedient to 
the will of that single rider, who had no 
thought to spare for game so small. 
Some Indian ponies, grazing across his 
pathway, set back their stunted ears, 
and, cow like, refused to budge at sight 
and hearing of the big American horse; 
whereat a little vagabond of a Cheyenne, 
not ten years old nor four feet high, set 
upashrill chatter and screech and let 
drive a few well directed clods of turf, 
and then showed his white teeth in a 
grin as Perry sung out a cheery ‘How! 
sonny,” and spurred on through the 
opening thoroughfare, heedless of spite- 
ful pony looks or threatening heels. 
Perry’s spirits rose.with every rod. 
Youth, health, contentment, all were 
his, and his heart was warm towards his 
fellow men. To the best of his reckon- 
ing, he had not an enemy or detractor in 
the world. He was all gladness of na- 
ture, all friendliness, frankness and cor- 
diality. The toughest cowboy whom 
they met on the long march down, the 
most crabbed of the frontiersmen they 
had ever encountered, was never proof 
against such sunshine as scemed to ir- 

run him down, After & moment's re- 
tleetion, however, Mv. Perry concluded 
that as ho had como so far and was now 
nearly within rifle shotof the mysterious 
goal of his morning rido, he might as 
well let the stranger go, and pushed 
ahead himself for Dunraven, 

The stream bent southward just at the 
point where he had first caught sight of 
the horseman, and around that point he 
knew the ranch to be, Very probably 
that was one of the ranchmen of whom 
Mrs. Lawrence had spoken—churlish fel- 
lows, with a civil word for nobody, grim 
and repellent. Why, certainly. That 
accounted for his evident desire to avoid 
the cavalryman; but he need not have 
been in such desperate haste—need not 
have kept at such unapproachable 
bounds, as though he shunned even being 
seen, That was the queer thing, thought 
Perry. He acted just as though he did 
not want to be recognized, Perhaps he'd 
been up to some devilment at the ranch, 

This thought gave spur to his speed, 
and Nolan, responsive to his master’s 
mood, leaped forward along the winding 
trail once more. The point was soon 
reached and turned, and the first object 
that caught Perry's eye was a long row 
of stakes stretching from the cotton- 
woods straight to the south up the gen- 
tle slope to the prairie, and indicating be- 
yond all question the presence there of a 
stout and high and impassable wire fence. 
There are few things the cavalryman 
holds in meaner estimate, 

“That marks the western limit,” 
thought Perry to himself, ‘tand doubt- 

radiate his face. He would go out of 
his way at any time to meet and hail a 
fellow man upon the prairies, and rarely 
came back without knowing all about 
him—where he was from, where he was 
bound and what were his hopes and 
prospects. And as for himself, no man 
was readier to answer questions or to 
meet in friendliest and most jovial spirit 
the rough but well meant greetings of 
‘the plains.” 

Being in this frame of mind wo an ex- 
tent even greater than his normal wont, 
Mr. Perry's eyes glistened, and he struck 
spur to hasten Nolan's stride, when, far 
ahead, and coming towards him on the 

, he saw a horseman like himself. 
Being in this mood of sociability, he was 
something more than surprised to see 
that all of asudden that horseman had 
reined in—a mere black dot a mile away 
—and was presumably examining him as 
he advanced. Hostile Indians thero had 
been none for manya long month, “road 
agents” would have starved ina region 
where there practically were no roads, 
cowboys might, and did, get on frolics 
and have wild tears” at times, but who 
ever heard of their being hostile, man to 
man? Yet Perty was plainsman enough 
to tell, even at the mile of distance, that 
the stranger had halted solely to scruti- 
nize him, and, next, to his vast astonish- 
ment, that something in his appearance 
had proved either alarming or suspicious, 
for the horseman had turned abruptly, 
plunged through the timber and acro: ; 
the stream, and in another moment 
veering that way himself to see, Porry

trail leading from the low bluffs to his 
left hand. It crossed the winding bridle 
path on which he rode, though somo of 
the hoof tracks seomed to join, and wheel 
trackstoo, Hehad marked that between 
the fort and the point no sign of wheel 
appeared; it was a hoof trail and noth- 
ing more. Now a light and little trav- 
eled wagon track came in from the north, 
and while one branch seemed to cross the 
Monee and to ascend the opposite slopes 

‘close along the wire fence, the other 

joined him and went on down thestream. 
This he decided to follow. 

A ride of a few hundred yards brought 
him to a point where a shoulder of bluff 
twisted the trail well in towards the 
strearh, and he, thinking to cross and re- 
connoiter on the other shore, turned No- 
lan in that way, and was suddenly 
brought up standing by the heaviest and 
most forbidding wire fence he had ever 
seen, Yes, there it stretched away 
through the cottonwoods, straight asa 
die, back to the angle whence started 
the southward course he first had noted, 
and, looking down stream, far as the eye 
could reach, he marked it. 

“Well,” thought Perry, “I've often 
heard an Englishman's house was his 
castle, but who would have thought of 
staking and wiring in half a county— 
half a Texas county—in this hoggish 
way? How far down isthe entrance, 

Following the trail, he rode down 
stream a full half mile, and still there 
seemed no break, Nowhere on the other 
shore was there sign of bridle path lead- 
ing up the slopes. Turning to his left in 
some impatience, he sent Nolan at rapid 
lope across the intervening ‘bottom,” 
and soon reached the bluffs, which rose 
perhaps forty or fifty feet above the 
stream, Once on the crest, the prairie 
stretched before him northward, level as 
a floor, until it met the sky; but it was 
southward he longed to look, and thither 
quickly turned. Yes, there it lay—Dun- 
raven Ranch, in all its lonely majesty. 
From where he gazed the nearest build- 
ing stood a good long mile away, That 
it was the homestead he divined at once, 
for a broad veranda ran around the 
lower story, and white curtains were 
visible at the dormer windows of the 
upper floor. Back of it and on the eastern 
flank were other buildings, massive look- 
ing, single storied affairs, evidently 
stables, storehouses and corrals, There 
was a tall windmill there—an odd sight 
in 80 remote a region—und a big water 

Perry wondered how it ever got there, 
Then at the southwest angle was a build- 
ing that looked like an office of some 
kind. He could see horses tethered there, 
and what seemed to be human figures 
moving about. Beyond it all, to the 
east and south, were herds of grazing 
cattle, and here and there in the dim dis- 
tance a horseman moved over the prai- 
rie, This reminded him of the stranger 
who had given him the slip; and he 
gazed westward in search of him. 

Far up the valley, between him and 
the distant post, he could plainly see a 
black object just descending the slopes 
fr&m the southern prairie to the stream. 

Not another was in sight that his prac- 
ticed eye did not know to be cattle. 

going fort-wards in the valley, after hav- 
ing made a three or four mile detour to 
avoid him, “ what sort of a Chris- 
tian is that fellow?” thought 
he gazed at the distant speck 



dipped and twisted through the stream 
bed, rose to the other side, wound through 
the cottonwoods and then out on the 
open turf. Huzzal There it strotched 
up the slopesstraight away for the south, 
straight through a broad gap between 
two heavy gato posts standing on the 
stake lino of that rigid fence, Nolan 
broke into a brisk canter and gaye a 
neigh of salutation; Perry's yes glistened 
with anticipation as he bent over his 
charger’s neck ily searching the odd 
looking structuro growing on his vision 
ag they neared the fence. Then, little 
by little, Nolan's eager stride shortenod 
| and grew choppy. Another 
and horse and rider reined 

swung a barrier 
slender and airy 

up short in | 
Between the gate posts 
of cobweb lightness, 
8 spider ever Woye, but 
bristling with barbs, stiffas “bullfinch” 
and unyielding as steel. One glance 
showed Perry that this inhospitable gate 
was firmly locked, 

For a moment he sat in saddle, study- 
ing the situation, while Nolan poked his 
head over the topmost strand of wire 
and keeping at respectful distance from 
the glittering barbs gazed wistfully over 
the inclosed prairie in search of comrade 
quadruped who could tell him what 
manner of place this was. Meantime 
his rider was intently eying the heavy 
padlock that was secured on the inner 
‘side of the gate, It v square in shape, 
massive aud bulky—something utterly 
unlike anything he had ever seen among 
the quartermaster’s stores, Dismount- 
ing and holding Nolan well back from 
the aggressive fence with one hand, 
he gingerly passed the other through the 
spike fringed aperture and turned tho 
padlock soas to get a better view, It 
was of Englislr make, as he surmised, 
and of strength sufficient to resist any- 
thing short of a tip hammer. LEvident- 
ly no admission was to be gained here, he 
reasoned, and yet it was through here that 
that horsemen hud come but an hour be- 
fore. Here were the fresh hoof prints in 
the trail, and it was evident that the 
rider had dismounted, opened the gate. 
led his horse through, closed and fast- 
ened it, then remounted and ridden 
away. Perry was plainsman enough to 
read this from the hoof prints. Studying 
them carefully, a look of surprise came 
into his face; he bent down and closely 
examined the two or three that were 

That, then, was his horseman, once more | 

Perry, as | 

most clearly defined upon the trail, then 
gave a long whistleasa means of ex- 
pressing his feelings and giving play to 
his astonishment. 

“Johnny Bull holds himself too high 
and mighty to have anything to do with 
us blarsted Yankees, it seems, except 
when he wants his horses shod. ‘Uhese 
shoes were set at the post blacksmith 
shop, or I’m a duffer,” was the lieuten- 
ant’s verbal comment. ‘Now, how was 
it done without the quartermaster’s 
knowing it? That's the cavalry shoe!” 

Pondering over this unlooked for reve- 
lation, Mr. Perryfonce more mounted 
and turned his disappointed steed again 
down stream. At last, full half a mile 
farther on, he saw that a wire fence ran 
southward again across the prairie, as 
though marking the eastern boundary 
of the homestead inclosure, and con- 
jecturing that there was probably a trail 
along that fence and an opening through, 
even if the southeastward line should be 
found fenced still farther, he sent Nolan 
through the Monee to the open bank on 
the northern side, cantered along until 
the trail turned abruptly southward, 
and, following it, found himself once 
more at the fence just where the heavy 
corner post stood deeply imbedded in 
the soil. Sure enough, here ran another 
fence straight up the gentle slope to the 
south, a trail along its eastern side, and 
a broad cattle gap, dusty and tramped 
with the hoofs of 4 thousdn steers, Was 
left in the fence that, prolonged down 
stream, spanned the northern boundary, 
Inside the homestead lot all was virgin 

Following the southward trail, Perry 
rode briskly up the long incline. It was 
east of this fence he had seen the cattle 
herds and their mounted watchers, He 
was far beyond the ranch buildings, but 
felt sure that once well up on the prairie 
he could have an uninterrupted view of 
them and doubtless meet some of the 
ranch people and satisfy himself what 
there was in the stories of their churlish 
and repellent demeanor, The sun was 
climbing higher all this time, and he, 
eager in pursuit of his reconnoissance, 
gave little heed to fleeting minutes. If 
fair means could accomplish it, he and 
Nolan were bound to have acquaintance 
with Dunraven Ranch. 

Ten minutes’ easy lope brought him 
well up on the prairie, There—westward 
now—was the mysterous clump of brown 
buildings, far away as when he 
stood, baffled and disappointed, by the 
gateway on the Monee. Here, leading 
away towards the distant buildings, was 
a bridle path. Herein the fence was'a 
gap just such as hoe had entered on the 
stream, and that gap was barred and 
guarded by the counterpart of the first 
gate and firmly secured by a padlock 
that was the other’s twin. Mr, Perry’s 
comment at this point of his explora- 
tions was brief and characteristic, if not 
objectionable. Hemgave vent to the same 
low whistle, half surprise, half vexation, 
that had comforted his soul before, but 
supplemented the whistle with the 
unnecessary remark: “Well, I'll be 

Even Nolan entered his protest against 
such incredible exclusiveness. Thrusting 
his lean head far over the topmost wires, 
as before, he signaled long and shrill— 
Vucigh that would have caught the ear | 
of any horse within o mile—and then, 
all alert, he waited for an answer, It | 
came floating on the ri wind, a re- 
sponsive call, a signal as eager and con- 
fident as Nolan and No- 
lan’s rider whirled quickly around to see 

his own, and

For fifty yards or so tho stranger rode 
confidently and at rapid trot. Perry 
smilingly watched the outturned toes, 
tho bobbing, ‘‘bent over” scat, and an- 
gular elbows that seemed so strange and 
out of placoon the broad Texan plain. 
Iie could almost see the “crop” in the 
freo hand, and was smiling to himself 
at the idea of a “crop” to open wire 
gates, when he became aware of the 
fact that the stranger's mien had chang- 
ed; confidence was giving place to hes- 
itancy, and he was evidently checking 
the vid trot of his horse and throwing 
his weight back on the cantle, while his 
fect, thrust through to the very heels in 
tho gleaming steel stirrups, were braced 
in front of the powerful shoulders of thé 
bay. The horse wanted to come, tho 
rider plainly wanted to stop. Another 
moment, and Perry could see that the 
stranger wore eyeglasses and had just 
succeeded in bridging them on his nose 
and was glaring at him with his chin 
high in air. They were within two hun- 
dred yards of each other by this time, 
and to Perry's astonishment, tho next 
thing tho stranger did was to touch 
sharply his horse with a barbed heel, 
whirl him spitefully about, and go bob- 
bing off across the prairie at lively can- 
ter, standing up in his stirrups, and be- 
striding his steed as though his object 
were not so much a ride as game of leap- 

It was evident that he had caught sight 
of Perry when Nolan neighed, had rid- 
den at once to meet him, expecting to 
find some one connected with the ranch, 
and had veered off in disgust the mo- 
men, he was able to recognize the uni- 
form and horse equipments of the United 
States cavalry.

was a ragged bowlder, standing, as it 
were, at anchor, for the salt waves beat 
ina circle round its base; and on its sum- 
mit, swinging out witha daring reck- 
lessness that would have been appalling 
to timid, inland folk, a sturdy youth 
wearing the rude garb of a fisherman— 
that was Harry Melville. He broke out 
into a song—a rude, nautical thing; but 
the old time air was sweet, and the voice 
that sung it wondrous ciear and reso- 
nant, ringing out like a trumpet peal 
above the dash of the waves, yet sweet 
and tender as the note of a wood thrush.

With cold and haughty stare?

Oh, no, she smiled upon him,

ranged the golden pippins in long rows 
on the mantle, in the very midst of their

A silence more solemn than death feil

bravely. Fair and white as a pearl, she 
moved about with sealed lips and solemn 
eyes, taking all the heavy household 
cares upon her slender shoulders and — 
working from dawn till twilight. Then, 
when the hush of night brooded over the -

Gliding down to tho beach, she would a

“Oh, that’s all!” The eager light died 
out of his eyes, leaving them gloomy 
and abstracted. “I do not want any

She gave a quick, gasping breath, but 
face and voice were quiet. 

“Well, Harry?” 

“Tm going!” 


“At daybreak.” 

Her very lips paled, and her slender 
fingers shook and trembled, but her eyes 
remained true and steady. 

“Well,” she answered slowly, ‘‘God 
bless you, Harry!” 

The boy stood silent, his eyes fixed on 
the far coast line, where the red sunset 
fires were slowly burning out, his 
thoughts busy with the past. One night, 
especially, stood out clear and vivid—a 
wild, stormy night, when the sky was 
like ink, and the mad sea thundered un- 
til the old farmhouse shook to its very 
center. They were down on the strand, 
his father and a half dozen fishermen— 
himself, a sturdy lad, following, like a 
young spaniel. Hard work lay before 
the men. A stately vessel lay out on 
the bar, and the strong gale was driving 
her to pieces, 

Boat after boat started out as her 
booming guns begged for assistance, but 
each one was swamped or driven back, 
It was mere desperation, an old sailor 
said; no boat cola stand such a gale— 
they could do nothing. His father 
Chuckled to himself, and bringing out a 
sturdy craft of his own, placed himself 
at its helm, and went out into the dark- 
ness, never to return again, the men 
averred; but Harry did not believe it. 
He had never known his father to fail, 
and he sat down amid the crash and 
roar to watch and wait, And not vain- 
ly, for by and by the sturdy boat beat 
ils way back, bringing only oné trophy, 
a little sea waif that the old'‘man had 
picked up—a tiny girl child with flaxen 
hair and blue eyes, 

The rough men bore her up to the old 
farm house, Harry trotting on behind; 
and before day dawn the booming guns 
were silent, for the stately vessel, after 
a brave fight, had gone down beneath 
the hungry waves, 

Capt. Melville and his wife could do 
nothing more or less than to adopt the 
little storm gift and bring her up as 
their own child, So they called her Sy-

The old fisherman was correct; about 
sunset it came, with a thundering crack 
and crash, as if the very heavens were 
being rolled together. : 
“The guns have ceased,” he said, put-

How to Halter F 

of Spirited Animals. 

First have a good, strong head halter, 
made of soft, pliable leather, which can 
be let out or takenup by buckles, so as 

to be adjusted to heads of different 
Have the hitching strap or rope x 

with a snap at one end s0 that it can be 
detached from the halter ring at pleas- 
ure; and be sure to have it so strong that 
the colt cannot break any part either of 

the head halter or hitching strap. Next 

drive or call the colt into a corner of a 

stall, catch him and put on the head 
halter without the hitching,gtrap. Turn 
him into the yard or lot, and let him run 
a day, until he gets accustomed to the 
feeling of it. Have some one look after 
him every half hour or so, to see that he 
does not geta hind foot caught in the 
head gear from trying to brush away the 
flies. Take the head halter off at night. 
Next morning before turning him into 
the yard put the halter on with the 
hitobing strap attached; turn him loose, 
and let the strap drag upon the ground 
beneath his feet for a day or two. After 
he has become well accustomed to the 
head halter and lead strap fix a ring se- 
curely in a beam overhead in the center 
ofa large box stall, Attach a strong 
rope or strap, with a ring inthe lower 
end, tothe ring inthe center of the stall. 
Get the colt into the stall, put the halter 
on him and fasten the hitching strap into 
the ring of the rope or strap hanging 
in thecenter of the stall. Tie the halter 
strap just short enough so that he can 
stand comfortably when he is not hang- 
ing back, and leave him for a half hour 
or more. When he stands quietly, caress 
him and give him a sweet apple or lump 
of sugar, then remove the halter and 
turn him loose, The next day hitch him 
up again and leave him for an hour or 
more, Then go to him, pat him, and 
give him an apple or lump of sugar. 
After he will stand hitched in this 
niguver without pulling, put a ring or 
staple in the side of the stall, about three 
feet from the floor, fasten him to that, 
and let him remain until he will stand 
quietly, then unfasten him, take him by 
the hitching strap, and lead him about 
the stall. Should he attempt to pull 
away or hold back, hold him firmly until 
he yields a little, then ease him away 
for a moment or two, caress him, and 
give him something that he likes from 
your hand. After he will allow himself 
to be led around the stall take him into 
the yard and repeat his lessons. Be firm 
but gentle with,him. Do not excite him 
by loud wor or rough treatment. 
After he will stand fastened in the stall 
have aring fastened to a strong post in 
the yard. Have ‘a long lead strap at- 
tached to the halter, pass one end through 
the ring and hold it in the hand, so that 
it can be eased a little if désired. After 
he has tried this thoroughly, and finds 
he cannot get away, hitch him firmly to 
the post and let him stand awhile. 
When he gets so that he will stand 
hitched to the post without resistance, he 
will be pretty thoroughly halter broken. 
It is much better to halter break foals 
when only a few days, or few weeks old 
at most, than to let them run longer. 
When taken at from two to four weeks 
old they can generally be halter broken 
in a half liour, especially if they have 
been handled from birth. When taken 
young it is not necessary to fasten them 
‘to rings in the stall. The halter strap in 
the hands of a strong man of good com- 
mon sense, who will ease up on the 
youngster occasionally until he gets 
through trying to pull away, is sufficient, 
concludes American Cultivator, from 
which the foregoing is taken. 

Which Is the Best Grape? 

L. Geiger, Boonville, Mo., in an essay 
‘on ‘‘What Is Our Best Grape?” read be- 
fore the Missouri Horticultural society, 


ak a Colt—Minute Di- 
rections Given Which, if Followed, Wil 
Save Time and Trouble In the Handling 



Their Avowed Object—How Farmers May 
Avail Themselves of Their Aid. 

Tho first of the American experiment 
Stations was established less than four- 
teen years ago (Oct. 1, 1875), and the 
majority of them have been in operation 
scarcely more than a year. Every state 
has at least one station; several hav. 
two, and one has three. These forty 
six stations now employ over 870 trained 
men in the prosecution of experimental 
inquiries and are supported by a national 
appropriation of $600,000, to which the 

sum total of $725,060 given from public 
funds the present year for the support 

the United States. “The object of these 
stations” “‘is to experiment and to teach,” 
“to make a regular business of discovery 
for the use of farming,” ‘‘to promote ag- 
riculture by scientific investigation and 
experiment,” and ‘to diffuse as well as 
increase the knowledge which improves 
farm practice and elevates farm life.” 
So says the bulletin, “The What and 
Why, of Agricultural Experiment Sta- 
tions,” issued from the office of experi- 

“If we want a market grape we study 
the wants of the market when we intend 
to sell. Those supplying a market where 
white grapes are desired will find a good 
variety in the Empire State, Martha, Ni- 
agera and Triumph. In red grapes 
Brighton, Catawba and Goethe, and in 
dark color Concord. These are old, tried, 
standard grapes, either for market or 
table. But the question is, Which is our 
best grape? Mr, George Hasmon, about 
thirty years ago, urged zealously the 
planting of the Norton at large as the 
best grape for red wine, and any word 
said in its praise at that time was not 
said in vain. The Norton has proved 

during these many years the best of its 
kind and should be planted in every gar- 
den, on every farm, on every spot of 
Jand where a family resides. And a bot- 
tle of Norton Virginia seedling wine 
should find its place beside the family 
medicines in every household of the 
Tand. Now, if the Norton is the best 
grape for red wine, which is the best for 
white wine, for market and for table? A 
grape which combines these three cardi- 
nal qualities is a standard variety in our 
vineyards, though most of us don't know 
that. It produces a large. showy bunch 
of a rich, desirable, redfish or copper 
color, ripens about mid-season, catches 
the eye by the first glance in market, is 
4& good shipper and a very good table 
grape; it brings a high price in market, 
either abroad or at home, and, if made 
into wine, makes a white wine which is 
not yet excelled by ayy produced in this 
country, California not excepted. And

mentioned branches of farming consume 
the products of the farm and return to 
it nearly all the plant food. This gives 
an increase of income, because the pro- 
ductive powers of the farm ingrease from 
the method, thus making the ke« ping of 
more stock practicable, 

All the above 

ment stations of the department of agri- 

Established for the benefit of agricul- 
ture, these stations make experiments in 
the laboratory, the greenhouse, the gar- 
den, the orchard, the field, the stable 
and the dairy. Inasmuch as each state 
has its own station no reason appears 
why farmers puzzled with agricultural 
problems too difficult for their own soly- 
ing should not appeal to the station of 
their own state for assistance. 

The statfons publish bulletins and re- 
ports of their work, which are supple- 
mented by publications of the ‘Office of 
Experiment Stations” at Washington, D, 
C. As each station sends its own pub- 
lications, without expense, to residents 
of its state who apply for them, there is 
no excuse for any farmer remaining in 
ignorance of what is going on at his 
own station. Wide awake men will not 
only apply for the state bulletins, but 
also for the publications intended for 
general distribution, at the office in 
Washington, D, C, 

Corn for Fattening Parposes, 

Corn is used, perhaps, more generally 
than any other grain for fattening 
purposes. Of flesh formers it contains 
about 10 per cent., warmth giving and 
fat producing constituents 75 per cent., 
and of bone forming substances 14 per 
cent, It may be noted that it is not a 
well balanced food. as it is rich in fat, 
containing over 5 per cent. of this alone. 
It is not commendable to feed it alone, 
even for fattening purposes, and espe- 
cially should this be observed when it is 
desired to produce eggs. It is claimed 
that the fat from fowls fed with yellow 
corn is of a yellowish color, and hence 
is objected to. In cold weather it may 
be fed with advantage, but not in sum- 
mer, as yarious disorders, caused by in- 
ternal deposits of fat, are very apt to re- 

sult, It is a good food, and its cheap- 
ness is largely in its favor; but it must 

be fed in combination with others less 
rich in fat and warmth giving properties 
to be used without danger and to give 
the best results, 

Salting Butter with Brine. 

Relative to salting butter with brine, 
Mr. Gilbert, of Richland, N. Y., said at 
a recent dairy meeting: 

“My experience is limited, but I be- 
lieve the butter does not keep as well. 
Two years ago, on the 12th of July, I 
packed two tubs of one churning, being 
the same cream and churned in the 
same manner. One tub was salted with 
brine, and salted in the usual way, the 
other packed. Upon opening these tubs 
on the 15th day of December, the butter 
that was salted with brine was almost 
worthless, while that which was packed 
in the usual way was just as fresh as the 
day it was put down.” 

Silage for Horses, 

An English farmer writes: “I have 
three horses doing *fast work in town; 
they have three parts silage and one 
part hay, with their usual amount of 
corn, viz.:; eight pounds of oats, two 
pounds of maize and two pounds of 
beans daily for each horse, I never had 
them in better condition or got through 
a winter with less trouble, not one of 
the horses ever having a day’s illness 
since we began to feed largely on silage.” 

Agricultural Notes, 

Of the newer roses, Mrs, John Laing, 
a pale, pink colored roso, is reported as 
of fine form, delightful fragrance and a 
splendid autumn bloomer, but not as 
hardy as could be desired. 

Apple trees may be transplanted, either 
in the fall or spring; but in sections sub- 
ject to severe freezing and thawing 
spring is the better time. As all the 
roots cannot be taken up with the stem, 
the branches should be shortened so as 
to preserve the balance between the toy 
and the roots, 

The statistician of the department of 
agriculture estimates the total value of 
oxen and other cattle—as contrasted 
with dairy stock—in the United States 
to be $14,518,708 less than the value of 
the same stock at the time of closing his 
report last year. Dairy stock has main- 
tained its value,

Of all the fruits we are blessed with, the 
peach is the most delicious and digestible. | 

| There is nothing more palatable, wholesome 

and medicinal than good, ripe peaches, They 
should be ripe, but not over ripe and half 
rotten; and of this kind they make a part of 
either meal, or Ds eaten between meals; but 
it is better to make them a part of the reg | 
lar meal. It isa mistaken idea that no fruit | 
should be eaten at breakfast. It would be 

| far better if our people would eat less bacon | 
| and greaso at breakfast and more fruit. In | 

| the morning there isan acrid state of the 
| secretions, and nothing isso well calculated 
tocorrect this as cooling, sub-acid fruits, such 
as peaches, apples, etc, Still, most of us have 
| been taught that eating fruit before break- 
fastis highly dangerous. How the ic origi- 
nated I do not kuow, but it is certainly a 

great error, contrary to both reason and facts. | 

The apple is oneof the bestof fruits. Baked | 
most delicate stomach, and are an excellent 
medicine in many cases of sickness. Green 
or half ripe apples stewed and sweetened are 
pleasant to the taste, cooling, nourishing and 
laxative, far superior, in many cases, to the 
abominable doses of* salts and oil usually 
given in fever and other diseases. Raw apples 
and dried apples stewed are better for con- 
stipation than liver pills. 

Oranges are very acceptable to most 
stomachs, having all the advantages of tho 
acid alluded to; but the orange juice alone 
should be taken, rejecting the pulp. The 
same may be said of lemons, pomegranates 
and all that class. Lemonade is the best 
drink in fevers, and when thickened with 
sugar is better than sirup of squills and other 
nauseants in many cases of cough.—Hall’s

A Pen for the Baby. 

Little Jack’s mother is enjoying a happy 
freedom from anxious care while about ber 
household duties, knowing that Jack is placed 
where he can injure nothingand nothing can 
injure him. A convenient safeguard and 
which can be folded and conveniently stored 
away When not in use, is made as follows; 
Itis formed of four frames fastened together 
uprightly, each frame consisting of two posts 
und three rails. It requires strips of board 
two inches wide cut into twenty pieces of 
three different lengths. The eight posts are 
twenty-one inches high; the six side rails are 
forty-eight inches long, and the six end rails 
are twenty-three inches long, Any otber 
size may be used, it being necessary to cut 
the side rails two inches longer than twice 
tho length of the end rails, 

In making the frames, place the top rail 
even with the tops of the posts and the other 
two rails below, five inches apart, clear. 
In putting the frames together binge both 
end frames to the back frame on tho inside 

so thateach can open at an angle of 90 degs., 

letting the side rails pass by the end rails, 
In fastening the front frame, fit the side 
and end rails so they cannot move up or 

down and hold in place with books. This 

frame work can be moved to any part of the 
room, and a soft rug spread underncath

wAbout Clothing. 
Clothing possesses no warmth in itself, but, 

‘as it is a more or less poor conductor of heat, 

it prevents the escape of the bodily warmth, 
Woolen fabrics contain a large quantity of 
air entangled in their meshos, which, being a 
poor conductor of heat, adds considerably to 
the warmth of clothing made from them. In 
hot weather we wear light cotton or linen 

clothing, so as to allow as much of the bodily 

heat to escape as possible. There is a preju- 
dice in the favor of light colored clothing for 
summer wear, but itis bardly based on sci- 
entific grounds, Dark colored cloth is the 
best radiator, arowing the bodily heat to es- 
cape freely, while white clothing absorbs less 
of the heat radiated directly from the sun, 
Therefore, to dress scientifically in summer, 
one should wear dark clothing in the shade 
and light clothing when exposed to the sun’s 
rays. Practically, the matter of appearance 
is the only one to be considered, as the 
warmth or coolness of clothing is not appre- 
clably affected by its color,—Popular Science 

Pretty Girls of New Orleans. 

On a first visit to New Orleans one is im- 
pressed by the pecullar appearance of the 
Women. Ono can seein New Orleans more 
delicious looking young girls and more pre- 
maturely old looking women than in any city 
in the country. The girls, up to the age of 
18 or 20, are lovely. They have rich com- 
plexions, bright eyes, the mingled languor 
and vivacity that render the southern girl so 
fascinating. Then, too, in summer time most 
of them wear white crosses with lace or open 
work sleeves and yoke, through which a 
creamy, satiny skin glints with aggravating 
attractiveness, There is but one word that 
tully describes them to the masculine mind. 
They are delicious looking. But they fade 
very quickly, and this accounts for the num- 
ber of old looking women of 25 years or 
thereabouts one sees on the streets or in their 
carriages,—Chicago Times,

Dear Sir :—The Bell Piano which I bought 
trom you a few months ago continues to give 
great satisfaction, Its depth of tone, and 
power, its brilliancy and sweetness make it 
always a delight to play upon, There is 
that peculiar ‘singing’ tone about its notes 
which produces 4 lovely effect, As regards 
the mechanical work and finish of the case 
and action, they seem to be above criticiam. 
Indeed I have never yet seen a Canadian 
Piano and very few American ones, which 
would at all compare in my ostimation with 
the ‘Bell Piano.” My opinion of that Piino 
however, is shown by the fact that I have 
selected one of them, in preference to all 

others for my OWN USE AND PLEASURE.

each month may be sct apart for the admin- 
istration of Holy Baptism. Last Sunday’s 
morning sermon was on the subject of ‘Christ- 
ian Unity’ as taught in the Epistle for the 
day. ‘The evening lecture treated of ‘The 
Christian name’ given in Holy Baptism. On 
Wednesday evening the subject of ‘Church 
Xevenue” was considered at a well attended 
meeting of the male members of the congre- 
gation. At the request of the Wardens a 
Committee of Finance was appointed to assist

ever, getting to be somewhat enlighten- 
ed on the subject of funerals. A few 
years ago there wero forty or fifty car- 
riages to every funeral, but now this 
number is reduced to about cizht, OF 
course, the more people attend funerals 
the better it is for, the undertaker. [iis 
business is advertised, and he comes in 
for the burial of those who are taken 
sick and die because of the exposure at 
the burial ground. But we undertakers 
have sympathetic souls like other Glasses 
of humanity, and I for one advise/all my 
patrons to have the funeral ceremony at 

tlemen of the family aeéémpany the 
body to the ce:netery,” 

Undertaker J. R Knowles expressed 
the same sentiments and added: 

“The exclusion of ladies and friends 
at funerals is an adniirable policy to 
adopt. This city is just awakening to 
the fact that a big funeral is a big folly, 
As a rule every large funeral is the 
cause of the death of at least one person 
who attends it.” 

New York adopted the-new custom 
some time since. Save in the case of 
men of great» official prominence, few 
funerals, with the exeeption of those of 
foreigners und persons of the poorer 
class, who accept innovations in such 
matters slowly, are largely attended, 
even by men, Nowadays thero are rare- 
ly more than three or four carriages at 
the funeral of a person of good social 
rank, and five seems to be the maxi- 
mum. ‘The more fashionable the fam- 
ily the simpler the angements are. 
Ata large proportion of such funerals 
that have lately there have 
been only one or two carriages besides 
the hears Undertaker Edward M,. Se- 
nior said yesterday: 

“Ab three-qnar’ 
ve had in cha

As w rule they do

ntive remains there to receive visitors 

down fo be } nt at si

to the grave. Even when they do this, 
they do not leave theie« surviages.” 

It is not uncot n now for persons 
to provide minutely for their burials in

A despatch from Ticonderoga to the Troy 
| Morning Telegram says: While laborers 
were engaged in digging a sewer in one of 
the principal streets of this village Thursday 
they struck a tombstone. At the bottom of 
it was found a coffin, containing the bones of 
a human being. The stone was washed off 
and found to contain the inscription aud date 
of the death of Lord Howe. The skull was 
intact but the rest of the bones were dis 
jointed and considerably decayed, As soon 
as it had been learned about the village an 
immense crowd of people assembled, ard 
many made desperate efforts to procure 
pieces of the bones. ‘he coflin, which was 
of oak, was in a fairly good state of preser- 
yation, and it was with great difficulty that 
people were prevented from cutting it to 
pieces for relics, Several years ago the 
street where the remains were found was 
filled in several feet, which accounts for the 
depth of the coffin’s location, The remsins 
will probably be re-interred at once in the 
village cemetery. 

Lord Howe, or George Augustus Howe, 
was born in England, in 1724, and was shot 
in battle at Ticonderoga, on July 8th, 1758, 
He entered the army at a very early age, 
soon rose to distinction and in 1757 was sent 
to this country in command @f the Sixtieth 
regiment, arriving at Halifax, N. S., in July 
of that year. e was transferred to the 
command of the Fifty-fifty infantry and was 
promnted to be brigadier general. On July 

th, 1758. under Commander-in Chief James 
Abercrombiz, he landed at the outlet of 
Lake George. Coming suddenly upon the 
French forces two days later at Fort Ticon- 
deroga he fell at the head of his corps in ti: 
ensuing skirmish, The General’ Court o 
Massachusetts appropriated £250 for his

We shoald endeavor to prevent thé ap- 
pearance of disease, rather than to cure it 
after it hus come. Sanitation, not medita- 
tion, is what will reduce disease among 
farm animals to the minimum... Disease is 
by tar the more common among swine than 
among other farm animals in this country. 
Annually above ten per cent of our swine 
die of disease, Yet there are men who have 
raised swine extensively for fifteen to twenty 
years with as little disease among them as 
among the best kept horses or cattle, These 
men have reared pure bred swine, and some 
of them are in the region where corn is 
largely fed, It cannot, therefore, be said 
that so much disease among swine is due to 
in-breeding, or wholly to the large feeding 
of corn. There is po reason why swine 
should be more subject to disease than other 
farm animals. The fact that they are, is 
because they are treated differently, Their 
cnasters are allowed: to become more filthy ; 
they are given drink that other animals 
would not be expected to use; their feed is 
thrown in the mud and their own manure ; 
and their shelters are of the poorest descrip- 
ticn and devoid of all means of ventilation. 
The men who have raised swine with little 
disease, haye given their swine pure drink, 
a variety of clean, wholesome food, comfort 
able, well ventilated shelters and clean, dry 

It must not, however, be inferred that 
there is among other farm animals no more 
disease than there should be, If more care 
were taken to provide sheap, catue and 
horses with only healthful food, drink, 
shelter and surroundings, it is safe to say 
that there would be much less disease among 
them, ‘The investigations of European 
veterinaries, and of Drs. Law, Grant and 
others in this country, have shown that 
bovine tuberculosis is most prevalent amon, 
cows kept in damp, foul, anventilated 
stables, or upon wet land where the air and 
food are contaminated. In other words, 
sanitation and hygiene are opposed to bovine 
tuberculosis, Nor is this aissnes an excep- 
tion Sanitary measures are the best 

reventives of every disease afllicting our 

‘arm animals, 

The measures recommendel for the 
prevention of disease would also be desir- 
able were no disease to be feared, It is 
firmly established that animals in low bodily 
condition are more subject to disease than 
vigorous, thrifty animals. That which 
makes the farm animal thrifty and vigorous, 
and therefore less liable to diseasc, also 
makes it profitable. The more wholesome 
the food, drink and surroundings of the 
animal, the stronger its appetite and the 
more thorough its digestion. It eats well, 
the excess above the food of support is at 
the maximum, and as this measures the gain, 
the profit is large. As digestion is vigorous, 
the amount of food which escapes sssimil 
ation is reduced to the minimum, Where 
“poor condition” is not allowed to exist, 
disease is ssarcely Known, and at the same 
time the animal makes the largest return for 
the food consumed, While we have need 
| for a huadred veterinaries to each one we 

now have, their work, as that of the 
| physician of the human body. will be largely 
in teaching sanitation.—American Agri

The management of the cream is the most 
particular of all the special points in butter- 

making, both as regards the quantity and | 
the quulity of the butter Sweet cream 
makes less butter, and that of a leas pleasant 
flavor than soured cream. But if the souring | 
is curried too far the flavor of the butter is | 

deteriorated, as the acidity hastens the 
production of those volatile acids which 
when in excess produce that condition which 

is known 4s vancidity, It is to the very 
moderate quantity of these acids in the | 
butter that the pleasant nutty flavor and 
peculiarly agreeable odor of good butter are | 
due. ‘Lhe proper condition of the cream is 
called ripeness, The ripening of 
consists in the production of a certain quan 
tity of lactic ucid in the milk, of which the | 
larger part—from sixty to seventy-five per | 
ceut—of the cream consists, The quantity | 
of acid in the cream should be no more than 
is sutlivient to give ita mild, pleasant-sour | 
taste, and this may be produced precisely by 
the following methods with shallow or deep | 
| cold setting respectively. With the former 
the mili is set in shallow pans, at a temper— 
ature of sixty to sixty two degrees, in pure 
| air, for thirty-six hours, when it is skimmed, 
| the milk being still sweet or very slightly | 
soured, The cream, skimmedat intervals of 
| twelve hours, is kept ia a covered jar at the 
| sume temperature, and fresh cream is added 
| to the firat skimmings, the whole is gently 
stirred, to mix altogether. At the expir- 
ation of thirty six hours from the first 
skimming the cream will be in the best con- 
dition for churning and ‘“‘yipeness,” as it is 
now termed, aud for making excellent 
butter. With the cold water and deep pail 
setting the cream is skimmed twenty tour 
hours after the milk has been set, und is 
kept ina puil set in the tank at the usual 
temperature of forty five degrees until there 
is enough for the churning, or the cream of 
each skimming may be churned each day. 
But the cream must then be ripened before 
{tis churned. This may be done by expos- 
ing the cream to a temperature of sixty to 
sixty five deyrees for twenty four hours to 
produce the requisite acility or ripeness; 
but this delay may be avoiced and the rip- 
ening hastened by adding a sufficient 
quantity of sour milk or buttermilk of the 
previous day’s churning to produce this 
sourness. Generally one quart of the sour 
milk to twenty quarts of the sweet cream 
will be enough for this purpose; the cream 
being gently etirred so as to mix the sour’ 
milk evenly through it. The precision with 
which this ripening is effected is the main 
point in making the best quality of butter, 
and to be sure about it the thermometer 
should be used to regulate the tamperature,

Select for uniformity. Keep in mind the 
location, the nature of the soil, climate and 
number of days required for maturity, and 
choose a strain suited to the particular situa- 
tion, In most cases better results are 
possible from home-grown seed than. will

Clayey uplands require shallow-grained 
varieties, with slender cob, of gvod length. 
Bottom lands will mature deep-grained 
varieties, with thick cob, and kernels less 
flinty, Choose a strain which is adapted to 
the locality, and yields the best and most 
shapely ears, and endeayor to improve it 
each year by selecting the best for seed. 

The work of securing seed-corn should 
really begin at planting time. Leta small 
plot of the best ground of the entire area for 
the corn crop be planted early and receive a 
little extra cultivation. The corn will ripen 
early, and as soon as the kernels are suffici- 
ently hardened, it should be cut and set up 
in small shocks, This willallow the corn to 
dry rapidly. Husk the entire plot before 
there is any possibility of an autumn freeze. 
While hauling to the crib, select from the 
entire lot such ears as approach the ideal 
corn. ‘his will be an easy task when the 
selection*is confined to such a small area. 
Itis not safe to depend upon the air and 
sunshine to dry the corn thoroughly, but it 
is better to place the seed-corn where it will 
secure artificial heat, and dry it until no 
freezing will damage it. It is now ready to 
be stored for the winter.—dmerican Agri-

Celery, whether self-blanching or other- 
wise, can be grown with much or little labor, 
but like other vegetables, the more care that 
is given, the better will be the result, There 
is a certain crispness and delicacy of flavor 
which can only be imparted by banking gen- 
erously with earth. Previous to banking 
some attention is necessary. 

Last year I bought afew pounds of straw 
piper, cnt the sheets into ten inch strips, and 
wrapped each plant in a paper jacket, then 
hilled up almost to the top of the papers. 
After a little practice, this can be done as 
expeditiously as the ordinary tying mp. 
This wrapping should be done when the 

Jants are perhaps a foot high, keeping the 
here end of the paper in place with a hand- 
ful of earth. thrown on with a garden trowel, 
until the row is finished, Care should al- 
ways be taken in hilling up to give a broad 
base to the hill, as the soil will need to be 
drawn up higher, later on, if the plants have 

rown far enough above the paper to make 
it necessary, Persone sol celery on a 
large scale, for ordinary market purposes, 
would hardly care to take this trouble, but 
if only a few hundred for family use are 
grown, this plan cannot be too highly recom 
mended. ‘There are two advantages gained 
by this process: 1, There are no crooked 
stalks, as is often the case when the plants 
are tied up. 2. It provents earthworms 
from nibbling the stalks, which they are 
sure to do in a wet season, American Agri-

H —J. R. Eestwood in Quiver, 


Perhaps the most of us associate tho 
Mea of a bear with the grizzly of the 
Rockies or the fierce denizen of Polar 
regions, All the same, tho Indian speci- 
men, as the following will show, is by 
no means to be despised, 4 

He is of two kinds—one the red brown 
bear of Cashmere, a native of the Hima- 
layas, living chiefly about the snow lino, 
which in that range lies at an altitude 
of 15,000 feet; the other is the black 
bear, found on lower slopes, where he

kari made me turn my head, 
“Por the love of Allah, sahib, not that 
Way! There, up that tree!” 
I took his advice, and from the treo

into some birch bushes below him. 

Reloading quickly, I looked out for

: path, and as he turned and looked in- 
| quiringly ot me I gota shot at him and 

he also made off into the covert, 

I reloaded and awaited the result. 
Nothing emerged from the patch of

approached the spot, and the second

And indeed upon closer inspection we 
found the two bears lying dead side by

for me too! 

mgst the great black bears 
of the semi-tropical jungles of southern 
India that the following much more 
serious adventure befell me, nearly put- 
ting an end to me altogether and leaving 
& gash two inches deep down my thigh 
for life. 

We were a party of two or three, 
shooting in a vast jungle on the banks 
of a riv ind found plenty of sambur 
deer, leopards, and a few bears. 

We beat the jungle by means of a | 
small army of coolies, the sportsmen 
stationing themselves at likely spots for 
the game to break covert, A very large 
black bear lumbered past-within shot of 
me. I missed him, and he disappeared 
into the jung!e. 

Before I had time to pursue him, how- 
ever, the bear, headed back by the beat- 
ers, came down the path straight to- 

haunts walnut and apricot trees, and is 
partial to honey, He is found also in the 
table land of southern India, in the jun- 

Both kinds sometimes measure as 
much as six feet from the tip of his nose 
to the end of the stump of his short tail.

The strength of bears is enormous. 
One constantly comes across matives 
who have been brushvd outof the way 
by a rude push with the pawof a bear, 
with the result of losing a limb or part 
of their jaa. 

One of the great dangersf the sport 
of bear shooting is that of getting below 
the animal, who may then charge down 
upon his antagonist. 

But, owing to their bad sight—they 
have queer, small eyes, deep sunk in 
their heads—and their greediness, which 
absorbs them in their feeding, a bear is 
by no means difficult to stalk, anda far 
easier prey than an ibex or deer or tiger. 

My largest bag was once four bears in 
one day, {t was in Cashmere; we had 
marchedten days across the hills toa 
valley high up in the mountains, awhere 
we had pitched our tent. I was alone, 
accompanied only by two shikaris, or 
native hunters. 

It was the month of April, the best 
season for bear shooting, for Bruin, thin, 
hungry and full furred, had only just 
emerged from his winter hibernation, 

Rising about 3a. m., and leawing the 
smoldering camp fire, we climed, under 
a bright moon, a steep pull up:a neigh- 
boring peak. 

It was essential to reach our point of 
vantage before the sun was. up, as after 
sunrise the wind blew down the moun- 
tain, and would be between us and our 

With field glasses to our eyes we 
scanned the panorama, bounded to the 
north ‘by the sharp cut peaks of snow 
standing out clearly in the growing day- 
light. The bears were then returning 
from the night’s prowl, and on a lucky 

day Ihave seen as many as seventeen 
within a radius of four or five miles. 

When a likely beast is spotted, hard 
at work, unearthing some root or inves- 
tigating a bees’ nest, the stalk follows. 
It may be over difficult ground, and 
mean steady hard work. 

At dast we reached to wifliin a hun- 
dred yards of where the bear was last 
seen,.and, with a doubled updigure and 
cat like steps, peered over the point of 
rock, with cartridge put in and rifle 

It was allright. Within thirty yards 
was a bear, unconsciously feeding. But, 
ah! he suspected something, for he rose 
on his hind legs and snuffed the air. I 
fired, aiming at his chest. Bruin tumbled 
over and rolled down the hill, dead. 

So much for number one. y 

Leaving the second shikari to take the 
skin, wemade for a point above us, to 
look for more sport. On turning a corner, 
however, we saw a little above us a bear 
coming toward us. 

To retire hastily out of sight and to 
struggle up the hill, so as to get on better 
terms with the animal, was the first 
thought. Then, with rifle full cock, I 

peeped cautiously over the edge of a rock 
to get a view of my friend, when—was 
it possible?—I found myself almost face 
to face with Bruin. Our heads nearly 

But he was the more surprised of the | 

two, for he had no notion I was any- 
where about, and he swung slowly 
round, only to receive his death wound 
and to topple down the hill. 

Then followed breakfast and the hot 
hours of tho day, spent lying on on¢ 
beck in the shade, sleeping, or enjoying 
freumily the wonderful panorama ol 
fold afier fold of mountain and valley 
spread out before one, It was about 4 
Oclock, when the sun had begun to 
down, that Luccounted for bears num 
ber three and fou 

About a mile off we w a bear cr 
a patch of wt After { ful stalk 
we came close upon him. But | 
not alone; he was feeding in comy 
with another, on a little plateau bet on 
two hills. 

I got ashotat him, and he made off 

wards me, and in a terrible rage stalk- 
ing along on his hind legs as he ap- 
proached me, 

I fired and hit him, but on he came: 
and in another moment, towering above 
me, he had closed with me and knocked 
me down like a ninepin, drawing his 
huge claws across me, from my shoulder 
to my thigh. 

But for my wearing a thick woolen 
cumberbund, or belt, wrapped many 
times round my middle, he must all but 
inevitably have injured me fatally. 

The bear stood over me, growling, like 
acat playing witha mouse. But I did 
not lose my presence of mind, and man- 
aged to get out my hunting knife, which, 
with the strength of despair, I buried up 
to its hilt in the animal’s chest. 

He staggered a little, but he seized me 
the next minute with his jaws round my 
thigh and shook me. The thick goatskin 
leggins I wore stuffed up his mouth 
somewhat, and probably saved my leg, 
but the gash is there to this day. 

I managed to get my knife into him 
again, though, at this juncture, and he 
dropped me, only to seize me, again, 
however, at this time on the shin, which 
he tore from knee to ankle, 

But he was losing blood fast, and drop- 
ped me asecond time. Then he pulled 
himself together, as it were, and had an- 
other goatme, This time he seized me 
by the ankle, and bit one of the tendons 
nearly through. 

But the bear was done for, Faint from 
loss of blood, he had to drop me again, 
and staggered, rolling over. He picked 
himself wp, though, only to fall again, 
and roll away some yards from where I 
lay, and to fall dead. 

He messured six feet from nose to 
tail. So when on his hind legs he could 
not have stood much less than nine feet 

As for me, wounded as I was, I had to 
be carried some forty miles, across two 
rivers, in a litter before I could receive 
medical attention, and narrowly escaped 
bleeding to death, As it was, I lay two 
months on my back, and it was a ques- 
tion as to whether they would not have 
to amputate the leg that had been so se- 
verely mauled by a bear.—E. E. Cuthell 
in Golden Days. 

An Intellectual Cat, 

At the graduating exercise of the high 
school at Stockbridge, an old cat, belong- 
ing to a scholarly family, walked into 
the church unseen and unheard. Noise- 
lessly she made her way throngh the 
crowd of people, taking the side aisle in- 
stead ofthe middle, axd with quiet dig- 
nity ascended the steps of the platform. 
Then she placed herself in a conspicuous 
position, right in front of the commiitee 
men, the ministers and the professors, 
and with a look of intense interest on her 
face she listened to the essays with a 
satisfied air. Noone molested her, and 
she sat quietly until the close, when she 
walked out witha smile upon her face, 
as much as to say: ‘*You have all done 
well, young people, and I predict a grand 
future for each of you.”—New York Ex- 

The Question of Sleeves. 

All the sleeves are fast verging on to 
the fashion of fifty years ago, and it 
seems that every week sees them swell- 
ing toward the balloon styles of another 
epoch, The sleeves of dresses of that 
time were almost big enough for dresses, 

and each had an enormous puffed and 
bedecked undersleeve. Even the chil- 
ren’s clothes and *oys’ jac sleeves

The Flag That Tripped Up Booth. 

A handsome mahogany case, contain- 
ing a silk flag with gold bullion fringe, 
occupies nearly all the available space 
of the wall in the southern part of the 
room of Capt. Cobaugh at the treasury 
department. Every visitor to the depart- 
mentis shown the flag and attention is 
generally invited toa tear in one of its 
strips. The flag formerly belonged to 
the Treasury guards, a volunteer organ- 
ization formed during the war for emer- 
gencies that might arise at the capital of 
the nation. After the fall of Richmond, 
and the night that President Lincoln 
went to Ford's theatre, the flag, which 
was then attached to a stout rosewood 
flagstaff, was borrowed by John T. Ford 
for decorative uses about the box occu- 
pied by the president. When the assassin 
fired the shot whose echo was heard 
throughout the civilized world he leaped 
from the box, and in doing so caught the 
rowel of his spur in the silken folds of 
the starry banner protruding from the 
president's box, That slip probably cost 
Booth his life, for the flag tripped him 
and caused the broken leg which imped- 
ed him in his efforts to escape and ren- 
dered him an easy victim for Sergt. 
Boston Corbett’s rifle ball. “Subsequently 
the flag was returned to the treasury de- 
partment, and during the few days that 
President Johnson had his office in the 
department the flag was in a corner of 
the apartment. It was removed, how- 
ever, by Capt. Cobaugh to its present 
resting place, and the staff was made 
into three canes and presented to officials 
of the treasury departiment.—Washing- 
ton Letter in Philadelphia News. 

Unlimited Credit. 

‘A country schoolmistress had much 
trouble with her pupils, and to avoid it 
made her examples placed before them 
of an explanatory character or illustra- 
tive. The effect was often unexpected, 
In going over their usual reading lesson 
a line was chosen by the lady upon which 
to test the merits of the scholars. The 
line read, ‘‘And he was a man of unlim- 
ited credit in business. 

“Now, John, can you tell me what is 
meant by the word credit when used as 
in this lesson?” 

Thus she of the stum-

ing ‘sheepish. 

“You don’t know!” said the mistress. 
“Well, look here. Supposing your 
mother was tocome short of money at 
the latter part of the week, and needed 
provisions, etc., now what would she 


She was satisfied that her illustration 
was plain, and awaited the correct reply, 
and it came thus: 

“Well, marm,” replied Johnny, “I 
dunno what she would do, unless she 
pawned dad’s Sunday coat.” 

The subject was instantly dropped, 
and the teacher has lost all faith in that 
style of illustration.—Young Ladies’

Destructive Conjlagration in Sophiasturg- 
On’ Friday night, 11th’ insti) the barns, 
sheds, &c¢ , belonging to Mr, R. A. Brookes, 
of Solmesville, were destroyed by fire, Mr. 
Brookes had beon out in one’ of the sheds 
but noticed no*indications of fire. He re- 
turned to the house and read several news: 
pap2rs, blew out the lanyp to retire for the 
night, when he saw the reflection of the fire. 
He ran out and discovered his own barn 
ablaze. The alarm was given and the 
neighbors quickly responded, but in spite of 
the most heroic efforts, the flames spread, 
Two large barns, ono of them 50x60 ft, two 
60 ft. stables for cattle and horses, a driving 
house 28x40 ft, were all in w short time 

totally destroyed The cattle including 17 

| milch cows and 9 horses were got out of the 

| burning building, but all the son's crop, 
170 loads of grain and 30 tons of hay, and all 

| the valuable machines used on a large farm 

| were destroyed, A steam threshing machine | 
belonging to Mr.Spencer was also destroyed. |

connection with his windmill a large reservoir

would also have been destroyed. Hisloss is | 
about $5,000, on which there is a partial

indeed, the Branch largely owes its existence 
and present prosperity. He made an excell

the accidents and sudden deaths which were 
continually occurriug in a manufacturing 
town like Deeerdnto. Formerly wheu men 
were hurt and killed, people were pestered 
with subscription lists, and members of 
friendly societies who were paying ducs very 
properly felt aunoyed when culled upbn to 
pay for those who might, by alittle prudence 
and foresight, have prepared for such a 
calamity, He told, much to the amusement 
of all, of some of the opposition which the 
Society received from the women, the class 
above al] others, who were benefited by its 
existence, He expressed his pleasure at 
inceting the delegutes from other branches ; 
Was glad especially to sce Mr, Behan, of 
Kingston, who had assisted at the formation 
of the branch. He also referred to the kind 
yeception accorded the Deseronto brethren 
during their visit to Kingston. 

On motion of Mr. E, J. Edwards, sccond— 
ed by Mr, T. D. Kinsella, a vote’of thanks 
was proposed to Miss’ Geno Hunt for the 
presentation of the beautiful harp for the new 
hall. ‘Lhis motion was enthusiastically 
carried by a standing vote. :

a number of, excellent selections which were

We seprel to announce the death of Mrs, 
Francis Brennan, which took place on the 
afternoon of the 15th inst. Mrs. Brennan 
had been an inyalid for a ork time. That 
insidious disease consumption had developed 
itself and for months past she had gradually 
been wasting away, her family having aban- 
doned all hope although everything was 
done that medical skill and loving hands 
could do to prolong her life. The deceased 
was a universal favorite in the community, 
and was loved and esteemed by a large circle 
of relatives and friends, _ She was the fourth 
daughter of the late Squire McHenry. She 
knew that her days were numbered and was 
ee conscious to the last. Surrounded 

y her family and fortified by the rites of 
the Catholic Church she peacefully expired 
and passed into that sleep that knows no 
wakening until the last dread trumpet shall 
sound, ‘he funeral took place on Thursday 
17th inst., and was largely atteuded, The 
remains were placed temporarily in the vault 
in the Catholic Cemetery, Napanee, and in 
a few weeks will be buried in the cemetery 
at Marysville. Mrs, Brennan leaves three

occasion of a happy reunion, a large number 
of children and grand children assembling at 
the old homestead in honour of the event. 
Among others present were: Mr, & Mrs. A. 
G, Allison, Belleville; Mr. & Mra, Frank 
Burr, Pawliug, N. Y.; Mrs. Jobn Noble, 
Merriam Park, St. Paul ; Mr, & Mrs. W. 
H. Allison, Toronto ; and Mr. & Mra, J. G 
Allison, y 
pleasant day was spent with the aged couple, 
who are still in good health andes a 
large number of valuable and useful presents 

The anniversary was made the 

Marysville. An exceedingly 

were given, among other a gold headed cane, 

‘old brooch, gold thimble, gold chain, etc. 
r. & Mrs, Allison settled on the farm they 

now occupy in March 1840, and were thus 

among the old pioneers of this district. They 

moved thither from Prince Edward County 

making their journey onan old ox sled, They 

crossed the bay on the ice at Randall’s 

ferry, and the whole day was spent in mak- 

ing the journey by a circuitous route 

through the woods as the roads were 

wretched the mud in many places being 

knee deep. Thus commencing their life in 

the woods they selected a farm without the 

first sign of any chopping having been done. 

A large elm tree was felled and used as the 

foiindation of the log building, Mr. Allison 
was obliged to borrow an axe to cut this 
tree and afterwards worked three days for 
a neighbor in order to raise money enough 
to purchase an axe for himself. In fact the 
couple had nothing to commence life except 
a hammer, trowel and draw knife, During 
the first twenty years by great exertions and 
labor they cleared nearly 200 acres of land, 
and now own one of the best farms in 
Tyendinaga. They were blessed with a 
large family of twelve children of whom 
nine are still ving: and they have also 39 
grand children, All will unite in wishing 
the aged people happiness and peace during 
their declining years.

with the atem end bown, not selecting 
special samples for this course, but taking 
the apples just as. they come, and placing 
them so as to make a solid row in the bottom. 
The next row-also should be put in carefully 
with the blossom end down. The barrel 
should be carefully shaken down on that

“That's what—it is called.” 

“Well, here! I've no intention of in-

ply didn’t suppose that on the broad 
prairies of the west there was such a 
place as a ranch where one of my cloth 
was unwelcome. I am Mr, Perry, of the

like to know what you people have 
against us. Are you the proprietor?” 

“I’m not, I’m only au employe,”

he could have things his own way—see

he ison the pay roll, and to carry out 
his instructions. If he can’t, he may 
“And your instructions are to prevent 

thinking, tantamount to insult. One 
moment he gazed after the retreating 
form of the horseman, then clapped his 
forage cap firmly down upon his head, 
shook free the rein and gave Nolan the 
longed for word. Another instant, and 
with set teeth and blazing, angry eyes 
he was thundering at headlong speed, 
swooping down upon the unconscious 
stranger in pursuit. Before that sun- 
burned, curly haired, bulkily framed 
young man had the faintest idea of what 
was impending, Mr. Perry was reining 
in his snorting steed alongside and cut- 
tingly accosting him: 

“I beg your pardon, my good sir, but 
may I ask what you mean by trotting 
away when it must have been evident 
that I wanted to speak with you?” 

The stranger turned slightly and coolly 
eyed the flushed and indignant cavalry- 
man, They were trotting side by side 
now, Nolan plunging excitedly, but the 
English horse maintaining his even 
stride; and stronger contrast of type and 

“style one could scarcely hope to find, In 

rough tweed shooting jacket and cap, 
brown Bedford cords fitting snugly at 
the knee but flapping like shapeless bags 
from there aloft to the waist, in heavy 
leather gaiters and equally heavy leather 
gloves, the stocky figure of the English- 
man had nothing of grace or elegance, 
but was sturdy, strong, and full of that 
burly self reliance which isso charac- 
terestic of the race. Above his broad, 
stooping shoulders were a bull neck, red- 

* dened by the sun, acrop of close curl- 

ing, light brown hair, a tanned and 
honest face lighted up by fearless gray 
eyes and shaded by a thick and curling 
beard of lighter hue than the hair of his 
massive head. 

He rode with the careless ease and su- 
preme’ confidence of the skilled horse- 
man, but with that angularity of foot 
and elbow, that roundness of back and 
bunching of shoulders, that incessant 
rise and fall with every beat of his 
horse's powerful haunch, that the effect 
was that of neither security nor repose, 
His saddle, too, was the long, flat seated, 
Australian model, pig skin, with huge 
rounded leathern cushions circling in 
front and over the knees, adding to the 
cumbrousness of his equipment and in 
no wise to the comfort; but his bit and 
curb chain were of burnished steel, 
gleaming as though fresh from the hands 
of some incomparable English groom, 
and the russet reins were soft and plia- 
ble, telling of excellent stable manage- 
ment and discipline, Perry couldn't 
help admiring that bridle, even in his 
temporary fit of indignation. 

As for him—tall, slender, 
made, clothed in the accurately fitting 
undr louse” of the army and in rid- 
ing breeches that displayed to best ad- 
vantage the superb molding of his pow- 
erful thighs, sitting like centaur well 
down in the saddle, his feet and lower 
legs, cased in natty riding boots, swing- 
ing close in behind the gleaming shoul- 
ders of his steed, erect as on parade, yet 
swaying with every motion of his horse, 
graceful, gallant, and to the full as pow- 
erful as his burly companion, the advan- 
tage in appearance was all on Perry's 
side, and was heightened by Nolan’s 
spirited action and martial trappings, 
Perry was an exquisite in his soldier 
taste, and never, except on actual cam- 
paign, rode his troop horse without’ his 
broidered saddle cloth and gleaming 
bosses. All this, and more, the Engli 
man seemed quietly noting as, finally,

“Amply, I should say; and yet were I 
to tell you that I had business with the 
proprietor and needed to ride up to the 

yet easy check of a steed in rapid mo- 
tion, and Mr, Perry, & capital rider him-

“Where did you learn that ‘sudden

“Then if anybody besides members of

you would be pretty apt to know it?” 

“T know that no one has, sir.” Anda 
flush was rising to the young sergeants 
face anda pained look hovering about 
his bright blue eyes. Yet his manner 
was self restrained and full of respect. 

“Don't think I'm intimating anything 
to the contrary, Sergt. Gwynne, No 
soldier in the regiment more entirely 
holds the confidence of his captain—of 
all the officers—than you. I was not 
thinking of that. But somebody down 
there at that big ranch below us has had 
his horse shod by a cavalry farrier—it 
may have been done while the Eleventh 
were here—and, while I knew you would 
not allow it at our forge, I thought it

so excited my curiosity; and as they

ranch, you would open the gate yonder, 
I suppose?” 

“No; I would tell you that the owner 
was away, and that in his absence I 
transacted all business for him,”’ 

“Well, thank you for the information 
given me at-all events. May I ask the 
name of your misanthropical boss? You 
might tell him I called.” 

“Several officers called three years 
ago, but he begged to be excused,” 

‘And what is the name?” 

“Mr. Maitland—is what he is called.” 

“All right. Possibly ‘the time may 
come when Mr. Maitland will be as 
anxious to have the cavalry around him 
as he is now to keep it away. But if 
you ever feel like coming up to the fort, 
just ride in and ask for me.” 

“T feel like it a dozen times a week, 
you know; but a man mustn't quarrel 
with his bread and butter, I met one of 
your fellows onceon a hunt after strayed

back. Possibly I'll see some of your 
people up at Rossiter when they come to 
get a horse shod.” 

‘A horse shod! Why, man alive, we 
shoe all our horses here!” 

“Well, that fellow who rode out of 
your north gate and went up towards the 
fort about an hour or so ago had his 
horse shod at a cavalry forge, or I'm a 

A quick change came over the En- 
glishman’s face; a flush of surprise and 
anger shot up to his forehead; he 
wheeled about and gazed eagerly, lower- 
ingly, back towards the far away build- 

“How do you know there was— 
What fellow did you see? he sharply 

“Oh, I don’t know who he was,” an- 
swered Perry. coolly. ‘‘He avoided me 
just as pointedly as you did—galloped 
across the Monee and out on the prairie 
to dodge me; but he came out of that 
gate on the stream, locked it after him, 
and went on up to the fort, and his horse 
had cavalry shoes. ‘Good day to you, 
my Britannic friend. Come and seo us 
when you get tired of prison life.” And, 
with a grin, Mr, Perry turned and rode 
rapidly away, leaving the other horse- 
man in a brown study, 

Once fairly across the Monee he am- 
bled placidly along, thinking of the odd 
situation of affairs at this great prairie 
reservation, and almost regretting that 
he had paid the ranch the honor of a 
call, Reaching the point where the 
wagon tracks crossed the stream to tho 
gateway in the boundary fence, he 
reined in Nolan and looked through a 
vista in the cottonwoods. There was the 
Englishman, dismounted, stooping over 
the ground and evidently examining 
the hoof prints at the gate. Perry 
chuckled at the sight, then whistling 

for Bruce, who had strayed off through 
the timber, he resumed his jaunty way 
to the post, 

In the events of the morning there 
were se ul things to give him abun- 
dant cause for thought, if not for lively 
curiosity, but he had not yet reached | 
the sum total of surprises in. store for | 
him. He was still two miles out from 
the fort, and riding along the 

bottom, when he bi Fo cf) n.

just after reyeille—I have been at stables 
all the morning. 1 was there when the 
lieutenant got his horse.” 

‘Yes, [remember. Then no one rode 
in from the valley?” > ; 

“No civilian—no ranchman, sir. The 
only horsemen I'ye seen were some 
Cheyenne scouts during the last two 
hours, and Dr, Quin—just before’ sick 
call.” ; 


“Dr, Quin!—the post surgeon! Are 
you sure, sergeant?” 2 

“Certainly, sir. The doctor rode into 
the post just aboutan hour after the lieu- 
tenant left—coming up the valley too, 
He went right around to his own stable, 
over towards the hospital,” 

A look of amaze and stupefaction was 
settling on Perry’s face. Now for the 
first time he recalled Mrs. Lawrence's 
intimations with regard to the doctor. 
and his connection with the signal lights, 
Now for the first time it occurred to him 
that the secret of those cavalry hoof 
prints at the gate was that no ranchman, 
but an officer of the garrison, had been 
the means of leaying them there. Now 
for the first time it flashed upon him that 
the Englishman's astonishment and con- 
cern on hearing of those hoof tracks in- 
dicated that the story of a mystery at 
Dunraven in which the doctor was con- 
nected amounted to something more 
than garrison rumor, Now for the first 
time an explanation occurred to him of 
the singular conduct of the horseman 
who had dodged him by crossing the 
Monee, Never in his young life had he 
known the hour when he was ashamed 
or afraid to look any man in the eye. It 
stung him to think that here at Rossiter, 
wearing the uniform of an honorable 
profession, enjoying the trust and con- 
fidence of all his fellows, was a man 
who had some secret enterprise of which 
he dared not speak and of whose discov- 
ery he stood in dread, There could be 
little doubt that the elusive stranger was 
Dr. Quin, and that there was grave rea- 
son for the rumors of which Mrs, Law- 
rence had yaguely told him, 

For a moment he sat, dazed and irreso- 
lute, Nolan impatiently pawing the turf 
the while; then, far across the prairie 
and down the valley there came floating, 
quick and spirited, though faint with 
distance, the notes of the cavalry trum- 
pe sounding “right, front into line.” 

e looked up, startled. 

“They're out at battalion drill, sir,” 
said the sergeant. ‘‘They marched out 
just as I left the stables,” 

“Just my infernal luck again!” gasped 
Perry, as he struck spur to Nolan and 
sent him tearing up the slope; ‘I might 
have known I'd miss it!”

“Indeed! Who is that? Send the men,

“Sergt. Gwynne, sir. Tho first time

“Your stable’ sérgeant, too? That is

“Since battalion drill this morning. He

he failed to appear at stables. Perry says 
| he met him two miles out.” 
| The two culprits!” said the colonel, 
laughing. “Poor Perry is down in the 
depths again. He rode up to mo with 
such a woebegone look on his face at 
drill this morning that I could hardly 
keep from laughing in front of the whole 
line, Even the men were trying hard 
not to grin; they knew he had turned 
up just in the nick of time to save him-

“T cannot imagine, sir, and am in- 
clined to be worried. He would never 
willingly overstay a pass; and I fear 
some accident has happened.” 

“Is he a good rider?” asked the doctor. 

“None better in the regiment. He is 
a model horseman, in fact, and, though 
he never alludés to nor admits it, there 
is a general feeling among the men that 
he has been in the English cavalry ser-

nationality; he is English to the back-

dark eyes-shot.a sidelong glance to note |

up, with considerable propping from his | 
muscular arms, came the burly form of 
the post commander. Two sweet, smil- 
ing faces beamed upon him through an 
aperture in the leafy screen, and Mrs. 
Belknap's silvery voice hailed him in 
laughing salutation: 

“Did we spoil your siesta, colonel? 
How can I make amends? You see, you 
were 60 hidden by tho vines that no one 
would dfeam of your being there in am- 

“Oh, Indeed, I assure you I wasn't 
asleep,” answered the colonel, hastily. 
“Won't you come in, ladies, and sit 
here in the shade awhile?” 

“We thought we would stroll around 
until parade,” said Mrs, Lawrence, hesi- 
tatingly, ‘‘and then sit down and watch 
it somewhere.” 

“No place better than this,” prompuy 
answered the colonel, ‘*You can sit be-

what we would infinitely prefer, sit here 
at the entrance and beseen. Meantime, 
I've been unpacking some photograph 
albums this afternoon, and you can 
amuse yourselves with those while I put 
onmy harness. Come!” 

« The colonel’s collection of photographs 
was something the ladies had already 
heard a great deal of. One of the most 
genial and popular officers of the army, 
he had gathered together several large 
albums full of pictures of prominent men 
and attractive and distinguish@l women 
—not only those with whom he had been 
associated in his long years of service, 
but men eminent in national and state 
aifairs, and women leaders in society in 
many a gay metropolis.

opened with old time precision, the 
parade “presented” to the colonel with 
all due formality, the manual was ex- 
ecuted just as punctiliously as though 
nothing unusual had happened; first ser-

parade formally dismissed; the line of 
officers marched solidly to the front, 
halted, and made its simultaneous salute

any one allowed tospeak of what was 
uppermost in every mind—that Sergt, 
Gwynne's horse had come in without 
him, and that the animal's right flank 
was streaming with blood. 

Ten minutes later Lieut. Perry, in rid- ~ 
ing dress, came hurrying down to the © 
colonel’s quarters, where two or three ~ 
officers were now gathered at the gate, 
The ladies had put aside the albums, and 
with anxious faces were scanning the lit- 
tle group as though striving to gauge 
from their gestures and expression the 
extent of the calamity or the possible de- 
gree of danger. But Mirs. Lawrence 
looked fairly startled when her hus- 
band’s voice was heard for the first time 

Both the ladies had hoped to see this 
famous collection the evening before, but 
the colonel had not then unpacked the 
albums, and they were disappointed. 

he wagasergeant before he had been 
with me two years, Then, if you ever 
noticed, colonel,” said Capt. Stryker, ap- 
pealing to his chief, ‘whenever Gwynne 
stands attention he always has the fin- 
gers of both hands extended and point- 
ing down along the thigh, close against 
it—so.”" And Stryker illustrated. _*‘Now, 
you never see an American soldier do 
that; and I never saw it'in any but Eng- 
lish trained soldiers, He has quit it 
somewhat of late, because the men told 
him it showed where he was drilled— 
we have other English ‘non-coms,’ you 

know—but for a long time I noticed that 
inhim. Then he was enlisted in New 
York city, some four years ago, and al 
his things were of English makc—what 
he had.” 

“What manner of looking fellow is 
he?” asked the doctor. “I think I would 
have noted him had I seen him.” 

“Yes, you Englishmen are apt to look 
toone another,” said the colonel in re- 
ply, ‘‘and Gwynne is a particularly fine 
specimen, He has your eyes and hair, 
doctor, but hasn't had time to grow 
grizzled and bulky yet, as you and I 
have, One might say that you and the 
sergeant were from the same shire.” 

“That would help me very little, since 
I was only three years old when the gov- 
ernor emigrated,” answered the doctor, 
with a quiet smile. ‘‘We keep some 
traces of the old sod, I suppose, but 
I’ve been a Yankee for forty years, and 
have never once set eyes on Merrie Eng- 
land in all that time. Did the sergeant 
say where he wanted to go?’ And the 
questioner looked up sharply. 

“Nowhere in particular—down the 
valley was all. I remember, though, 
that Mr, Parke said he seemed much ex- 
ercised over the name of thatranch down 
the Monee—I've forgotten what they call 
it. Have you heard it, coloriel?” 

“Seems to me I have, but I've forgot- 
ten. You have, doctor, have you not?” 

“Heard what, colonel?” 

“The name of that ranch down the 
Monee—an English ranch, they tell me, 
about seven miles away.” 

“Oh, yes!—that one! They call it Dun- 
raven Ranch.—Did the sergeant take any 
of the hounds with him, captain? It oc- 
curs to me he might have been running 
a coyote or a rabbit, and his horse have 
stumbled and fallen with him. There is 
no end of prairie dog holes down that 

“No, the dogs are all in. I wouldn't 
be surprised if he had gone to the ranch. 
That’s an English name, and they are all 
Englishmen down there, I hear. Very 
possibly that is the solution. They may 
have tempted him to stay with English 
hospitality; though it would astonish me 
if he yielded. I'll tell the men to inquire 
there first, colonel, and.will go and send 
them now.” And, bowing to his com- 
mander, Capt. Stryker turned and left 
the porch. 

The doctor rose, thrust his hands deep 
in his pockets, paced slowly to the south- 
ern end of the veranda, and gazed down 
the distant, peaceful valley, an anxious 
cloud settling on his brow. The colonel 
resuined once more the newspaper he 
had dropped upon the floor. After a mo- 
ment Dr, Quin came slowly back, stood 
in front of the entrance a few seconds 
looking irresolutely at the soldier

Now, however, the prospect was indeed 
alluring, and neither could resist. When 
the first call sounded for parade a few 

moments after, and the commanding 
officer was getting bins io is full 
dress uniform, the two pretty heads were 
close together, and two pairs of very 
lovely eyes—one dark and deep and dan- 
gerod the o' bd te Randiionde gray 
—were dilating over pagevafter page of 
photographed beauty. There was no 
nted to puzzle over the identity of the 
originals; under each picture the thought- 
ful colonel had carefully written the 
name and address, Absorbed in this 
treat, they could barely afford time to 

look up and smile their thanks as the 

colonel passed, clanking forth at the 
sounding of adjutant’s call, and were too 
completely engrossed in their delightful 
occupation to notice what took place at 
parade. | : 

The long, slender line had formed— 
the infantry companies on the right and 
left flanks, their neat and tasteful dress 
of blue and white contrasting favorably 
with the gaudy yellow plumage of the 
four dismounted troops of the cavalry, 
Company after company had taken the 
staturesque pose of ‘‘parade rest” and its 
captain faced to the front again, the ad- 
jutant was just about moving to his post 
on the prolongation of the front rank, 
and the colonel settling back into the 
conventional attitude of the command- 
ing officer, when from outside the rect- 
angular inclosure of the parade ground 
—from somewhere beyond the men’s 
barracks—there came sudden outcry and 
commotion. There were shouts, indis- 
tinguishable at first, but excited and 
startling. Some of the men in ranks 
twitched nervously and partially turned 
their heads, as though eager to look be- 
hind them and see what *as wrong; 
whereat stern voices could be heard in 
subdued but potent censure: ‘Keep your 
eyes to the front, there, Sullivan!” “Stand 

| enne scouts, their poni 

fast, there, center of Third company!” 

The guard, too, paraded in front of its 
quarters some distance behind the line, 
was manifestly disturbed, and the voice 
of the sergeant could be heard giving 
hurried orders, Every man in the bat- 
talion seemed at the same instant to ar- 
rive at one of two conclusions—prisoners 
escaping, or fire over at the stables—and 
all eyes wero fixed on the imperturbable 
form of the commanding officer, as 
though waiting the signal from him to 
break and goto the rescue. But there 
the colonel stood, placid, calm, and ap- 
parently utterly unconscious of the dis- 
tant yet nearing clamor, The adjutant 
hesitated a moment before proceeding 
farther, and glanced appealingly at his 
chief; whereupon there came from the 
blue and gold and yellow statue out on 
the parade, in half reproachful tones, 
the quiet order, ‘Go on!” and the adju- 
tant, recalled to his senses and with evi- 
dent expression of his sentiments to the 
effect that if others could stand it he 
could, brusquely turned his head to- 
wards the band and growled, “Sound 
off!” The boom and crash of drum and 
cymbal and the blare of brazen throats 
drowned for ¢ moment the sound of the 
turmoil without. The next thing the 
battalion Heard or, saw was riderless 
horse tearing full tilt out on the parade 
and sweeping ina big circle from the 
right of the line down towards the point 
where the colonel stood. 

above the general hum of consultation: 

“Col. Brainard, Mr. Perry is coming, I 
see, and I presume there is no time tobe 
lost. You haye asked if none of us who 
were stationed here ever visited the 
ranch, and the answer wasno. May I 
suggest that Dr. Quin could perhaps tell 
something of its inhabitants?” 

“Where is the doctor?” asked the col- 
onel, turning suddenly. “Orderly, go- 
and give my compliments to.the post — 
turgeon and say I wish to see him here 
a moment, All ready, Perry? You have 
made quick work of it.” p 

“All ready, sir. At least, I will be 
the moment my horse gets here. There ~ 
go the men running to the stables now.” — 

“Capt. Stryker will send a sergeant 
and four men toreport to you, and you 
are to go direct to Dunraven Ranch. — 
The rest of the troop, with the Chey- 
ennes, will scout the prairie to the east — 
and south. ‘Iwill soon be too dark to — 
trail, but three of the Indians are go: 
‘eck on the horse’s track as far as they 
can. The adjutant is writing a note to 
the proprietor of the ranch—I don’t know 
his name”—— 

“His name is Maitland, sir.” 

“Ts it? Have you been there?” 

“T've been around one end of it, out- — 
side, but nowhere near the buildings. 
It’s all fenced in, sir, and the gates kept 
locked.” ‘ 

“What an incomprehensible proceed- 
ing for Texas! Wait a moment while I 
speak to Mr. Farnham; he’s writing here 
at my desk. Gentlemen, come in on the 
porch and sit down, will you not?” 

But they excused themselyes and 
hastened away to remove their full dress. — 
Capt. Lawrence had no need to call his 
wife. She bade her companion good 
evening, thanked ‘the colonel with a 
smiling glance for the pleasure the pho- 
tographs had given her, and added a 
word of earnest hope-that they might 
find the sergeant uninjured. Then she 
joined her husband, and together they — 
walked quicklyaway. Mrs. Belknap and 
Mr. Perry were left for the moment alone. 

“Can you walk home with me?” she 
asked, in her low, modulated tones, the 
great, heavily lashed, swimming dark 
eyes searching his face. ‘I have not 
seen you since they broke in upon our 
talk last evening, and there is something 
I want to ask you.” 

“Tm sorry, Mrs, Belknap, but I’m on 
duty, you see,” was tho young fellow’s 
answer as he gave a tug to the strap of 
his cartridge belt. ‘Can't you ask me 

“How can I”—and the eyes were full 
of pathetic disappointment—‘when they 
may come out any moment? You did 
not finish telling me about—about the 
tassel last night, I believe you were glad 
when they interrupted us. Were you 

not?” - 

‘Nonsense, Mrs. Belknap! I was hay- 
ing too good a time—lots of fun.” 

“Yes,” wads the reproachful answer, 
“that is what it was—to you—mere fun, 
And now you are going away again, 
after promising to come in this evening.” 

“T have to go, Mrs. Belknap. Why, L 
want to go. Haven't you heard what 
has happened—about Sergt. Gwynne?” 

“Oh, yes, it is your duty, of course; 
but how unlucky!” And the pretty face 
was drooping with its weight of disap- 
pointment and” sadness. She’ leaned 
against the railing near his gauntlet coy- 
ered hand, the dark eyes pensively down- 
cast, the dark lashes sweeping her soft, 
flushing cheek. ‘And to-morrow you

There's No Substitute for Leather, 

Leather is a unique material. There is 
no substance in any way analogous to it. 
Flexibility and durability are opposite 
qualities that no other product possesses 
in such a marked degree, In'the tanned 
skin the gelatine and tannin, the animal 
and the vegetable kingdom, are com- 
bined in an indissoluble union which 
will withstand the continuous frictional 
wear which shoes, harness, belting, etc., 
are subjected to better than anything 
else. It is the one commodity for which 
there is absolutely no substitute, Cotton, 
wel, linen and silk are to some extent 
interchangeable; wood, iron and stone 
are frequently used in lieu of each other, 
but, notwithstanding the scientific re- 
search and discovery of the present age, 
nothing has been invented to supersede 
or obviate the necessity for leather. With 
the single exception of breadstuffs, none 
of the great staples of commerce has 
Such a numerous constituency. Every 
inhabitant of the country, without regard 
to age, sex or color or condition in life, 
is to a greater or less degree a consumer

Imitations of Old Bronze. 

An excellent imitation of old bronze 
has been introduced in some of the art 
products of that character. It is well 
known that the repeated applications to 
copper or brass of altertidte washes of 
dilute acetic acid and exposure to the 
fumes of ammonia result in a very an- 
tique green bronze; but a more rapid 
method of producing this beautiful ap- 
pearance has long been a desideratum. 
Tt is now found that this may be accom- 
plished by immersing the articles in a 
solution of one part perchloride of iron 
in two parts of water, the tone acquiring 
darkness with length of immersion, or 
the materials may be boiled in a strong 
solution of nitrate of copper. It is also 
found practicable to insure the desired 
effect by immersing the articles in a solu- 
tion of two ounces of nitrate of iron and 
the same quantity of hyposulphite of soda 
in half apint of water, drying and burn- 
ishing completing the process,—New 
York Telegram. 

Florida Sponges, 

The finest and best sponges in the 
world are now obtained along the Flori- 
da Keys. Native Floridians do the prin- 
cipal gathering. There are some Bahama 
Islanders also. The spdénge fishers are 
called conks. They do not dive, but tear 
up the sponges with three tined forks on 
long poles. A Greek came down from 
New York a year or so ago and tricd 
gathering them by diving, using a regular 
diver’s suit, but he made a failure of it, 
The sponges grow rapidly, A bed which 
has been fished clean will be covered 
with a new growth in six months. The 
product amounts to nearly half a million 
dollars annually,—True Flag.

Pranks Which Often Proceed from Serious 
or Malicious Purpose. 

The various professions have their own 
records of practical jokes, which too 
often proceed from some serious or mali- 
cious purpose. 
taken with vengeful design, was that of 
the Belgi painter Wirtz, who, year 
after year, sent pictures to the Salon, 
only to have them returned, as the 
judges, whose duty it was to pass upon 

the pictures’ submitted, would have 
nothing to do with him. 
Finally he became possessed of a 

genuine Rubens, which he sent off to the 
Salon bearing hisown name. It was at 
once sent back to him, and then, as the 
phrase goes, he had the judges on the 
hip, and could taunt them with not 
knowing the work of a master when 
they saw it. 

Another such practical joke was play- 
ed upon the late Mme. Rudersdorff. b: 
Sir Michael Costa, the conductor. A 
rehearsal one day the lady declared that 
shecould not sing her song as it was 
written, but must haye it transposed 
half a note lower. 

“But, madam,” said Costa, ‘consider 
the inconyenience, especially to the wind 
instruments, and particularly as all my 
men cannot be counted upon to transpose 
at sight.” 

But madame was obdurate, and Costa, 
shrugging his shoulders, bowed in acqui- 

“Very well, gentlemen,” said he, turn- 
ing to the bewildered orchestra, and 
closing his score, ‘‘Yo-morrow you will 
*play it a note lower.” . 

The next day;*however, just before 
Mme. Rudersdorff came on to sing; Costa 
whispered to the ofchestra: ‘In the orig- 
inal Key! No chinge.” And so it was 

At the close of the air the singer turned 
to Costa and thanked him warmly. 

“Tam charmed!” she said, 

“Madame,” replied Costa, with a touch 
of pleasant irony, “‘we are also charmed. 
You sang it in the original key.” 

Had. Mme, Rudersdorff's ear been as 
unerringly correct as thatof certain phe-

of Memory Sleep—The Impressions 

The varieties of 
as 18 vi 
nee, so wide 

memory are as 
zaries. There is, for 
ins ange between Nie- 
buhr, the great statesman, and a certain 
divine, that one can scarce] ognize 
the same faculty ineach, It is said of 
| Niebuhr that he remembered everything 
he had read at any period of his life; 
and it aid of the reverend doctor that 
he forgot he had been married within an 
hour or two of the interesting event, 

John Wesley had a remarkable mem- 
ory, and at 85, even, it was still vigor- 
ous. Andrew Fuller could repeat a poem 
of five hundred lines after hearing it 
read once or twice, could recite verbatim 
a sermon or speech, and enumerate the 
names of the shop signs from the Temple 
to the end of Cheapside, with a deserip- 
tion of the principal articles displayed 
in each shop window, 

Before the days of shorthand report- 
ing, ‘Memory Woodfall” used to attend 
the house of commons, and, after listen- 
ing to a debate, would reproduce the 
whole without taking a single note. The 
same power was possessed by William 
Radcliffe, the husband of Mrs. Radcliffe, 
the novelist. 

Both Macaulay and Sir Walter Scott 
had prodigious memories, yet neither of 
them could compare with Beronicious, 
of Middleburg, who knew by heart the 
works of Virgil, Cicero, Juvenal, Homer, 
Aristophanes and the two Pilnys. If 
this was an example of ‘‘rote” only we 
have in Mezzofanti, the celebrated lin- 
guist of Bologna, one of the most strik- 
ing instances on record of what, by dis- 
tinction, we call intelligent memory. He 
was described by Lord Byronias “ta 
walking polygot, a master of languages 
anda Briareus of parts of speech,” At 


nomenal musicians the joke could never 
have been successfully carried out, but 
the conductor, of course, knew with 
whom he had to deal,—Youth’s Com- 

! _ | Disease in Books. 

“I sometimes am almost led to believe 
that the intellectual benefit derived from 
a public library is outweighed by the 
physical detriment,” were the words that 
fell from the lips of a distinguished 
physician a day or two ago, as he rather 
gingerly handled a greasy looking vol- 
ume that ornamented the mantel piece 
of a patient's sick chamber. 

‘Not only is a bookworm’s absorption 

often injurious to his health, but it is a 

well authenticated fact that disease may 
be written between the Hines of books, be 
they fiction, poetry or theology. The 
average patron of a circulating library is 
a person not overscrupulous as to the 
care of a borrowed volume. He will hl- 
low filth to accumulate rapidly within 
and without, and, if a member of the 
household be stricken with measles, or 
scarlatina, or even diphtheria or small- 
pox, like as notthe book will find its way 
into the presence or the lap of the invalid, 
to be transferred thence a little later to 
the shelves of the library, and then to the 
hands of some unsuspecting reader. 
“The leaves of the book easily absorb 
the germs of disease that float in the at- 
mosphere. Microscopes have brought to 
light the fact that bacilli sometimes over- 
sprinkle a page with the frequency of 
periods and commas. The handling of 
such a book might be fatal to the reader. 
It is not actually known that many ill- 
nesses result from such causes, but there 
is always the danger.”—Indianapolis 
Sun. : 

A London Cabby’s English. 
One does not expect to speak his 
mother tongue in the highways and by- 
ways of Paris, Berlin or Vienna, but in 
London one hopes at least to be under- 
stood, as is often not the case. A Wash- 
ingtonian doing the sights of this Eng- 
lish capital ordered his cabman to drive 
to the Alhambra. “*Where is it, sir?” 
asked the cabby. ‘‘Well, my man, that’s 
what I don’t know and what you ought 
to know, if you pretend to know your 
business.” Poor cabby was nonplused 
and asserted with evident mortification 
that though he had made his living as a 
London cabman since boyhood he had 
never heard of sucha place as the Al- 
hambri. ‘*Why,” said the much dis- 
gusted American, ‘its a place where 
they haye music and dancing and plenty 
to drink.” ‘Oh! it’s the Helumbria you 
mean, sir,” and with a sarcastic smile on 
his face at the pronunciation of his 
American cousin ne drove to the place 
in question.—W ashington Herald. | 

An Interesting Family. 

Old Mrs, Baron Mure told me that Lord 
Byron’s mother was a fool and his father 
was a rascal. He poisoned his first wife, 
Lady Caermarthen, who was divorced 
from him because her father, Lord Hold- 
ernesse, left his money to her illegitimate 
children, and he had nothing more to 
expect, Miss Gordon, though she was 
told of this, and had a fortune of £3,000 
a year, married him. He spent all her 
estate, saying about £30 year, on which 
she lived with her son in a garret at Aber- 
deen, supported in a great measure by 
her friends, who, when they killed a cow 
or sheep, would send her part. She was 
always fat. When Mrs, Siddons appeared 
first in Edinburgh Miss Gordon took a 
hysteric fitin the playhouse, clung round 
{rs. Muro’s neck, kicked off her shoes, 
and was carried out by Mr. Dundas, now

in fifty languages—perfect in pronuncia-

“It isrecorded of La Fontaine, noted 
for his absént-mindedness, that he once 
attended the funeral of one of his most

recent death he was at first terribly 
shocked, and then remarked, ‘True; of 
course, I recollect now that I went to his 

A curious instance of memory in sleep 
is related by a French writer on dreams, 
He says he once saw in a dream a nuin- 
ber of men passing out from a feast. 
He observed them all very attentively, 
and the face of one struck him so much 
that he remembered it after waking. 
Exercising his thoughts as to where he 
had seen the face before he at last rec- 
ollected having seen it some days previ- 
ously in a book of fashions, which he 
had carelessly glanced at and cast aside. 

Reichenbach, a German writer on 
mental phenomena, says: 

“Waking, I cannot with whatever 
effort recall the features of my wife, who 
died some twenty years ago; but if I 
think of her in a dream, and her image 
is represented, I get the same with such 
accuracy that I have again before me 
every expression ‘of her fine features in 
all their loveliness.” 

There are endless stories of the hiding 
places of missing deeds, and so forth, 
being revealed in dreams, Let us take 
one as typical. 

A landed proprietor in England was 
involved in a lawsuit in consequence of 
a claim upon his father’s estate, which 
he was firmly convinced had been dis- 
charged, Judgment, however, was about 
to go against him, as no voucher could 
be found. Butone night, in a dream, his 
father appeared to him, and said that the 
papers relating to this affair had been 
placed in the hands of a solicitor he had 
not generally employed, but who hap- 
pened to be engaged for this particular 
business. In the dream the father said 
that if this person had forgotten a matter, 
which was already rather old he would 
be reminded of it by the mention of a 
Portuguese gold coin, concerning the 
value of which there was a dispute at the 
time. The dream was curiously verified, 
as the solicitor only did recollect the cir- 
cumstance on mention of the gold coin. 
He was then able to produce the missing 
pepers, and the son gained the suit after 

Both Plato and Aristotle have noted 
that in old age the recollections of child- 
hood are renewed; and it is recorded of 
Kant that, in his old age, when general 
memory was decayed and infirm, he had 
vivid recollections of his youth, 

Most of us, probably, have witnessed 
some affecting instance of an aged per- 
son living in the scenes of the long past, 
with a mind almost blank to the present. 
This is latent memory reawakened, but 
with powers of consciousness limited by 
an enfeebled brain, ‘ 

Even at the very entrance of the “val- 
ley of the shadow,” the memory plays

that he once knew an old man who in

There were five of them together, and it 
was late. They had been drinking. Fin- 
ally, one of them looked at the clock, and | 
said : | 

**Whaé will our wives say when we come 

‘Let them say what they want to. Mine | 
will tell me to go to the mischief,” reepond- 
ed No, 2,

experiences, Let the one who has refused 
to do what his wife told him to when he 
got home pay for this evening’s entertain- 

“That's a good idea, We will agree to 
that.” So the party broke up, and went 
to their respective homes. 

Next morning they met at the appointed 
place, and began to tell their experiences. 

Said No, 1; 

“When I opened the door my wife was 
awake, Shesaid: ‘A pretty time of night 
for you to be coming home. Youhad better 

what you will come to sooner or later, 
anyhow,’ Rather than pay for all we had 
drank last night, I did what she told me to. 
That let’s moe out,”

No. 2 cleared his throat and sald : 

**When I got home I stumbled on a chair, 
and my wife called: ‘There you are 
agalb, you old drunken brute! “You had 
better wake up the children, ‘und stagger 
about the room for a while, so they can see 
what a drunken brute of a father they are 
afflicted with,’ I thought the best thing I 
could do under the circumstances was to 
obey ; so I woke up the children, and 
staggered around until my wife hinted to 
me to stop. She used a chair in conveying 
‘the hint. That let’s me out,”

‘I happened to stumble over the pan of

So I sat down in it, and that lets me out.”

“I was humming a tune, and’ my wife

“T reckon I'll have to pay, My wife told 
me to do something none of you would have

“What was it ?” P 

“She said, ‘So you thought you would

The West holds on and is likely to hold 
on to its present area of wheat through 
necessity rather than satisfaction, The ten- 
dency now will be, and I believefis, to im- 

rovement in our methods of wheat-growing 

mprovement will be necessary if, as far as 
wheat is concerned, our farmers are to hold 
to the present level of their living, for beyond 
questicn present yield and present prices are

Improvement is sought not in radical 
change of methods but in concervative 
advances’ and often in makeshift ways. 
Change of seed is sometimes resorted to as 
an aid, under the belief that the sorts grown 
have deteriorated. I am not infrequently 
asked to furnish seed to parties aflirming 
thattheirs had runout. I always look upon 
itas a probable indication that the farmer 
has in a measure run out, or in cther words, 
it is almost a sure indication of poor farming, 
Our lands naturally, as statistics show; be- 
coine exhausted and the crop gradually be- 
comes reduced in yield. This is often 
mistaken for the running out of wheat. The

In connection with the late accident in 
Napanee, it is stated that there is no light 
on Centre street within the next three blocks 
of the dangerous railway crossing on that 
street. The Council are surely criminally 
negligent, if such is the case, 

In an address to the young people 
confirmed at Belleville on Sunday, Arch- 
bishop Cleary stated that he was very anxious 
about the boys. They had so many tempta-

1t will be remembored that or the 20th of 
July a fracas occurred in the yard of the 
Royal hotel, Napanee, during which a shot 
was fired from a revolver at one Frederick 
Sagar, the ball grazing his leg and tearing 
his clothes. Samuel Letters, who has been 
working o1 @ farm in Sidney has been 
arrested as the person who used the revolver 
on the occasion, 

In a small town in Baden a minister closed 
his sermon the other day with these words : 
“We would be pleased, moreover, to have 
the young man who is now standing outside 
the door come in and make certain whether 
she is here or not. That would be a great 
deal better than opening the door half an 
inch and exposing the people in the last row 
of seats to « draught.” 

With the death of Mr. Robert Stanhope 
there disappears a well known figure from 
the streets of Deseronto. The deceased was 
well known all over the district, He was a 
native of Liverpool, England, and was much 
respected by all classes, He was a devoted 
and consistent member of the Orange Order, 
& brother never ashamed of his colours, The 
funeral took place on Tuesday, the remains 
being interred in Christ Church cemetery. 

The General Convention of the Baptist 
Church in.Cauada, which was in session this 
week at Ottawa, passed a unanimous motion 
against all tax emptions. {t must be said 
to the credit of the Baptist Church that it is 
always in the van in all matters of a pro 
geessive character, and no other action 
could be expected. All tax exemptions 
should, and will be, abolished. Churches 
and all church property should be taxed. 
The fact that the Church is exempted from 
its share of taxation ond that it recoives aid 
so often from the state is the fruitful cause 
of untold evils,

We regret that the members of the town 
council did not take action at their last meet- 
ing in reference to the proposed new post 
office and custom house for this town. Time 
is passing and if nothing is done very soon no 
sum will be placed in the estimates for the 
purpose, and Deseronto will find itself once 
more left inthe lurch, Governments ,only 
give new buildings after great and long con 
tinued pressure being brovght to bear, and if 
Deseronto expects to secure a beautiful post 
office a delegation ‘must be sent and other 
Steps taken to enforce our claims on the 
government. As Deseronto is a town gov- 
emed by petitions, why not'get up'a_ petition, 
calla public meeting, and appoint delegates 
or take other action? : 

Clever Capture. 

Last week one Edward Maloney from 

rts unknown engaged with A. Canfpbell, 

arysville. On Monday morning he went 
out to plough, ‘but, giving a paltry excuse, 
soon gave up the job. He told Mr. Camp- 
bell to examine his satchel to see that Ne 
had stolen nothing. Mr. ©. did not think 
it necessary. After he departed, it was 
discovered that he had stolen $50 from 
young Campbell’s yest pocket. An alarm 
was given and the police in Napanee, Des- 
eronto, etc., notified. Mr. A. L. Chandler, 
of this office, going down on the mixed 
train spotted Maloney from the description 
given, and informedthe police in Kingston. 
Maloney was arrested, identified, and found 
guilty by the magistrate who has sent him 
up for trial at the next court. 
Wedding Bells, 

A very pleasant event which has been 
looked forward to with much interest for 
some time past took place on the evening of 
Wednesday, 23rd inst. At eight o'clock on 
that evening Mr. Isaac Allum, jr. of Des- 
eronto, was united in marriage 
Hattie, daughter of Mr, S, B. Bowen, of 
Richmond. The ceremony which took place 

it was a burglar and got up to capture him. 
Mrs, Lenderoth while lighting the fas caught |

at the residence of the bride’s father, was per- 
formed by Rev. R. J. Craig, pastor of the 
Church of the Redeemer. The bride looked 
charming and wore a travelling dress 
fawn cloth. She was attended by her sister, 
Miss Jennie Bowen, who was similarly 
attired and carried a bell of flowers in her 
hand. The groom was supported by Mr, 
W. A. Macleod. After the ceremony the 
wedding party to the number of sixty sat 
down to a sumptuous supper and spent a 
pleasant evening. The bride was the recip- 
lent of a great number of handsome presents, 
including a silver water set presented by the 
choir of the Church of the Redeemer, of 
which she was a member, and a handsome 
china tea set presented by Rev, R. J. Craig 
and Mrs. Craig. The happy couple left for 
a tour to Kingston, Ottawa and other points 
east. THE TRIBUNE and a host of friends 
unite in wishing the young couple a very 
happy wedded’ life. 

St. Mark’s Chureh Notes, 
On Sunday last by request of the Wardens 
and Finance Committee the assistant, Rev. 
Mr. Patton, preached sp rmons on the 
“Duty and measure of Giving” as inculcated 
inthe Word of God, The preacher while 
commending the liberal spirit which has ani- 
mated the congrcgation in the past went on to 
prove, in a plain and forcible manner, the duty 
and expediency of system in church offerings, 
and the Divine authority that may be adduced 
for tithe -piving which, could the chureh but 
attain unto, all less worthy modes ot support- 
ing religion (especially such as eyoked the 
disapproval of the late Provincial Synod) 
would be swept away. A clear and terse 
statement of present financial obligations has 
been issued by the Committee in a circular 
which further asks every attender of the 
church to adopt the envelope system and thus 
to co-operate in the earnest effort now being 
made towards liquidating the debt. It jis 
hoped that each one may ean increased

/ Burning of The Steamer Quinte. 

About 5:40 p.m., on the evening of 
Wednesday, 23rd inst. the town was thrown 
into a state of wildest excitement by the 
Quinte, of the 
| Deseronto Navigation Company, was burn 

report that the steamer 
| ingoutin the bay. The whole sky was 
soon bright with the reflection of the burn- 
ing steamer and people lined the docks 
| and posted themselves at other points of 

advantage to behold the grand and awful 

| spectacle ‘which developed before their’ 
eyes. Parties from different parts of the 
town seem to have noticed the first small 
flame which made its appearance ; some 
who savy it thought ag it appeared to rush 
along that it was inoving through the trees 
across. the bay, As the flames spread 
with great rapidity they svon saw it wasa 
vessel afire, and that it was the Quinte which 
was thus doomed to destruction, Many, 
however, thought it was the Deseronto, 
others again that it was the Puritan, or a 
schooner, and different rumours to that 
effect spread quickly through the town for 
several minutes, The course of the burning 

passing that way, 
ored to wrench them off, 
over and she turned to help Mrs. Stata over 
with her child, but she had not come as she 
expected. She looked across and saw her 
disappear in the smoke at the aft gangway 
on the starboard side. and never saw her 
again, She then lost sight of her boy in the 
smoke; she got over the board and turned 
| up the starboard side of the stairs, When she 
heard Johnie cry ‘Chis way Ma, this way.” 
She followed the sound of his voice and took 

| hold of hin and went out on the life boat on 

When she reached jit she saw four or five 
| passengers coming up from the outside of 
| the boat from the aft gangway on the port 
| side. She recognized Colonel Strong, 
the other three she did not know. Some one 
asked, Where are the life preservers ? 
Purser Hambly ond a passenger rushed to 
get some and got some out, but.were quickly 
driven back by the flames and smoke, bring- 
ing only one with them, The flames com- 
menced lapping her and her dreas caught 
fire at her shoulder, Johnnie said “Ma, 
jump into the water,” but she replied ‘‘No, 
we are too far up, let us get closer down to 
the water.” She then saw the purser scaling 
down the side of the boat by the paddle box, 
holding on to a rope which passed over the 
paddle box, and looking down she saw Col. 
Strong, holding on to the fender. She did 
not hear her little boy, and at first thought 
it was no use to look down for him supposing 
that he had perished. However in a moment 
or two sbe did look down and ssw him 

vessel as all ablaze she rushedjacross the bay 
to the Fredericksburg shore was viewed 
with thrilling anxiety and the further con- 
flagration watched amid much excitement 
after the boat was run aground. All this 
time there was no thought that there would 
be any loss of life, as it was supposed that 
the vessel having reached the shore all those 
on board would be rescued. Little did, 
rene ashore dream of the exciting scenes’ 
which were transpiring on the doomed 
vessel. The Quinte left Deseronto for Pic- 
ton at 5:30 p. m., and had gone down the 
bay about two miles, or about opposite 
Grassy Point, when fire was observed in the 
fire hole. Pumps were got to work by the 
engineer, hose stretched and water turned on 

but all to no parpose ; the flames continued 
to spread with great rapidity. Capt. Christie 
wisely decided to run her ashore on the 
Fredericksburg shore where the shore is 
bold. Jas. Collier, an experienced mariner, 
was at the wheel, and he directed her course 
.as ordered by the Captain. The steamer 
was going at a high rate of speed, and this 
caused the flames to spread even more 
rapidly. Passengers and crew were driven 
by the-flames, from. their.cabins and, other 
quarters to the deck, or forced to cling by 
ropes, or Other means On the outside of the 
vessel or any place of safefy they could 
find. The Captain endeavored to get a life 
boat down but the fire reaching lim: ren- 
dered that impossible. Mate Collier stuck 
manfully to the post of duty and heroically 
guided the burning vessel, even though 
the wheel house was encompassed with 
flames and death stared him in the face. 
Nor did he leave the wheel until he suc- 
ceeded in running the Quinte ap on the 
beach. For this noble deed he deserves 
the greatest credit, for had he left his post, 
itis doubtful if any on the boat could 
have been saved. It was surprising how 
rapidly the flames spread; in a few 
minutes she was a mass of raging fire. When 
the boat struck the shore efforts were made 
at once to rescue the passengers. These 
were clinging to fenders, ropes, the paddle 
wheel, and some were compelled when the 
tire reached them to relax their hold and 
jump into the water. Two boats came to 
the rescue one from a vessel at anchor and 
another manned by two fishermen. The 
passengers were soon released from their 

erilous position and conveyed to the shore, 

t was then found that four persons vere 
missing and the truth daywued upon all the 
party that Mrs, Christie, motticr of the 
Captain, and her son Charles, together with 
Mts. Stata, ladies maid, and her little boy 
Douglas, had perished in the disaster. The 
Ripple and subscangntly the Deseronto were 
despatched to aid the burning vessel and 
their return was awaited by a large and 
anxious multitude. A rush was made to hear 
the news as they approached the dock, and 
all were horrified to learn that the disaster 
had been accompanied with loss of life. 
Attention was at once directed to the 
injured. Doctors NeéWwton and Van- 
deryoort were summoned and were soon at 
the waiting room, while the officers of the 
Company ‘ent all the assistance possible. 
The passengers and crew as they arrived 
were conveyed to the hotels, where they 
received all attention and were visited by 
great numbers of eople. The Quinte con- 
tinued to burn all night and all day yes- 
terday and practically nothing is left of 
this fine vessel so popular with all the 
travelling public along the Bay of Quinte. 
The news of the disaster was heard with 
greatest regret in all the towns of the dis- 
trict and the Deseronto Navigation Com- 
pany haye received innumerable ex- 
pressions of sympathy in. the loss of their 
oat, The Company, it is unuecessary to 
state, feel keenly the loss of life entailed by 
the disaster, 


We publish a few statements made by 
survivors of the disaster, beginning with 
that of Mra. Anderson, the stewardess, who 
with her son Johunie, aged 10 years, has 
been on the Quinte during the past five 
seasons. It will be seen that Mrs. Anderson 
retained rare presence of mind, and that 
Johnnie also displayed the same yirtue in a 
marked degree and proved himself a hero in 
every sense of the term ; 

Mrs, Anderson states that the Quinte left 
Deseronte at 5:30 p.m, ‘he steamer had 
not gone far, the men had settled down to 

hanging on a rope betweeggtwo gentlemen 
who were assisting him. © heard one of 
them say, ‘Look out for that child, where is 
the other?” Johunie cried to her ‘Ma, 
hang on to the rope, Ma.” and kept shoutin, 

toher to hang on as he was holding, sn 

goon it would be all right. She saw Col. 
Strong hanging to the rope by hia right 
hand; his body in the water, the waves from 
the wheel passing over his head. She 
thought to herself ‘Poor Colonel Strong we 
will never see him again, he cannot last 
much longer.” The wheels stopped and she 
lost sight of all the men. She and her boy 
still clung to the rope, he exclaiming. 
“Hang on, it will be all right in a few 
minutes.” She looked to see what hold he 
had and left go and caught her hands in the 
holes of the paddle wheel box ; she saw he 
was hanging to the rope with both hands, 
with his right knee pressed between the rope 
and the guard of the boat- She despaired 
of his life fearing that if his knee got cleared 
he would not be able to support his body with 
his hands alone and that he would drop 
under water. When the boat struck the 
beach, both Brepeed into the water together, 
and she felt both going down very deep. As 
this was taken place she remembered a 
conversation she héard in which a lady re- 
marked that by walking as it were in the 

water, a person could keep above the sur- | 
face. She. carried. the idea into effect 

and rapidly rose to the surface with 
her boy who was entangled in her dress. 
Johnnie, when under the water swallowed a 
few gulps but immediately pressed his hands 
over his mouth, and when he emerged she 
noticed that he held both his hands pressed 
on his face. He had presence of mind 
enough to tell her to try to reach the wheel. 
The same man who helped him before 
reached his hand out to her, but she could 
not reach him. Her boy reached the wheel 
to which he clung, and called to her to do 
the same, She tried to do so and caught 
hold of it but slipped off, but the effort 
brought her nearer and the mun again 
reached out hishand and caught her, and 
asked her if she was all right but she 
could not speak. She looked ashore and 
saw mate Collier whom she never expected 
to see as she thought he must surely 
have been burned to death at the wheel, 
saw the purser, engineer and deck hands. 
The Captain ran aud leaped into the water 
und reached them exclaiming ‘Where are my 
passengers?’ ‘The men at the wheel replied 
they are nearly all here Captain. He then 
asked, ‘‘Where is my poor mother?’ but 
there was no answer, Col, Strong was stil! 
clinging to the fender very much exhausted. 
A boat came froma vessel near by, but did 
not notice them at the wheel, Those on the 
shore directed their attention to them but 
they misunderstood them until Purser 
Hambly threw a stone to show them 
where they were when the boat made 
towards them, She then noticed a woman 
floating in the water aft off the cabin, and 
thought it was the boda of the Captain's 
mother and she told the Captain to go to that 
lady att. He did so and she saw him, but 
the heat was so intense the lady could not 
be got in the boat but was dragged along 
and brought to shore, Another boat came 
and rescued her and her companions at the 
paddle wheel. Reaching the shore she and 
Miss Kellar were kept as warm as possible, 
the men wrapping their coats about them. 
She received some bruises, burns on the face 
and hands, and was much exhausted. She

Miss Azuba Kellar, a lieutenant of the 
Salvation Army, and daughter of Mr, J. 
W. Kellar, of Deserouto, gives the following 
account. She had spent the day in Deser- 
onto and was returning to Picton. She was 
sitting in the cabin when she heard the first 
alarm and spoke to purser Hambly telling 
him about it. She thought it would be

but she remained composed. There were 
two women and two little boys. One of the 
women was Mrs. Christie. Miss Kellar

Christie put their heads out to get air, 
both were crowded in one window, 
She Lroke the window more and got

Kk. Raleton, of Hamilton, stated that he 
was on his way home from Montreal, was at

| to the cabin, burst open a window, seized a 
| chair to break his fall into the water. He 
| got out and got hold of a rope, and after 
wards reached a cross bar below the boat to 
which he clung. There he remained until 
the boat with a rescuing party arrived. It 
was too hot for them to get near him, but 
they extended a pole which he seized and by 
it was drawn into the boat When in the | 
cabin he heard a woman exclaim ‘‘Save me 
and my baby” He had his hands and head | 
burned and cut, and lost his samples, baggage 
and coat. He attributed his deliverance to 
4 kind and all powerful Providence, 

_E. E. Hart, of Fulton, N. Y., was eating 
his supper when the alarm was given, He 
ran up stairs to the hurricane deck and 
thence dropped down with Col. Strong, a 
fea and a boy. He saw aftewards That 
Col. Strong was sinking and he pulled him 
towards the paddle wheel, to which he was 
clinging. He also assisted the lady and 
the boy to retain their hold. He saw a

was himself rescued by one of the boats. 

Thomas Short, the engineer, stated that a 
passenger came towards him saying that 
their boat was afire. He went forward and 
saw that such was the case, He started the 
hand and pony pumps at once and turned on 
the hose but tonoetlest. The flames spread 
rapidly and going on his hands and knees he 
gave more feed water into the boiler, He 
saw the Corteln and told him to beach the 
boat, but the Captain had just given that 
order to the wheelsman. Short then pro- 
ceeded to save himself ; he climbed over the 
aft part to the hurricane deck, and thence 
made his way to the promenade deck and 
over the bow into the water. When the

life that has ever happened in the large list | 

| of vessels owued and ran by the Rathbun | well-known Kentucky desperado. 

Company. i 

Everything possible is being done to re- 
cover the bodies of those who perished. 
Yesterday the Rathbun Company placed two | i 
steamers and a large force of men at work to 
try to recover the bodies of the lost. 

Too much praise cannot be given to the 

in whieh they stood by their posts and trie‘ 
to save their vessel and passengers, they )e- 
ing the last to go on shore, 

The schr, Fred L. Wells lay at/anclior a 
short distance from the place where the 
steamer went ashore, She sent a boat, to 
the rescue and rendered good services, 

Capt. Christie managed by himself to cut 
clear one of the life boats but could not 
unaided get it lowered to do service. He was 
forced at last by the flames to desist. 

Sanford Woodcock and Alfred Blakely, 
fishetmen, were the first to come to the 
rescue, With their boat they did most 
gallant and efficient service in rescuing the 
passengers from their perilous position. 

The doctors at a late hour last night re- 
ported all the passengers doing picely, 

Capt. T. Donnelly said thet he never in- 
spected a boat that had such a fine fire 
Oost as the steamer Quinte, It was 
all new this spring. He held her up as an 
example for other boats to copy. He in- 
spected her last May. In Toronto the 
same remarks were made vhen the Quinte 
was running there. 

C. A. Hart as he let himself down 
kicked in the glass of the cabin and saw 
the scared face of Mrs. Stata and her child 
whom he attempted to reach but before he 
got near them they had disappeared. 

When the Quinte struck the shore the 
rock shaft of the engine broke thus caus- 
ing the wheels to cease their revolutions. 

The annual fall races held under the 
auspices of the Deseronto Driving Park 
Association took place in their new driving 
park on Friday, 15th inst. There was a fair 
attendance of spectators, including many of 
the leading horsemen of the district. The 
track’ was in superb condition, and all'the 
visitors Were unanimous in pronouncing it 
the best graded track in Central Ontario. 
The directors were repeatedly congratulated 
during the day on this fact. The races 
passed off very successfully the contests for 
supremacy being of a very exciting char- 
acter. Mambrino Mitchell, was the winner 
in the stallion race, taking all the heats in 
splendid style, He is an honest trotter and 
made each heat withouta skip. In the ‘Free 
for All’ there was an exciting contest Little 
Tommy took the two first heats, but Harry 
Parker captured the other three, although 
it was almost a neck by neck contest. 
Splendid time was made, the last heat being 
trotted in 2.32, In the running race Maud 
won easily. This animal is a surprise to all; 
she made the mile in 1,50. All were pleased 
with the differents events of the day, and 
the owners of the different horses expressed 
themselves more than satisfied with the 
treatment received at the hands of the 
judges and directors. We append the re-

Mambrino Mitchell, the stallion which in 
such fine style took first place at the late races 
in Deseronto, is a dark chestnut, stands 15 
hands 3 in., is open gaited and wears neither 
weights nor boots, and trots like a piece of 
machinery. He arse eure bane three a 
ago by Folger Bros., of Kingston, from W. J. 
Wadsworth, of St. Clair, Mich, He was 
sired by Mambrino Gift, the first stallion 
which ever trotted a full mile to a sulky in 
2:20; his dam was the celebrated trotting 
mare, Maggie Morgan by ‘‘Tiger,” who coulu 
trot all day in the thirties on any kind of a 
track. Mambrino Mitchell had never been 
educated or started in a race before, and his 
first. attempt at Napanee on the 8th inst. 
brought him at once into prominence, although. 
he was classed second place after a hard 
struggle in which every advantage was taken 
of his condition. As it was he took the first 
and third heats. The track where he trotted 
there is hardly fit for an exhibition ring, Js 
considerably more than a mile, to say nothing 
of mud holes and hills, This horse had been 
only worked ten days, and during that time 
was only on the track twice, which horsemen 
are ell aware is anything but even terms 
with a horse worked for two months regulatly 
and during that time started in races, Mam 
brino Mitchell has a good future before him in 
the trotting turf.

subject and thus put the information in a | 

form that will be of service to those interest- 

ed. It may sppear strange that it is worth | 

while to say so much about this plant, but 
when it isremembered that there are persons 
in various parts of the province who main- 
tain that it is a modification of the wheat 
plant, brought about by winter killing of the 

wheat, it will not be such a matter of sur- | 
prise that I should deem it expedient to | 

write something about this apparently 
doubtful member of the grass family, en- 

deavoring to show that it is a species | 

(Bromus secalinus) just as much as any other 
plant is, and that it does not depend for its 
existence upon a modification of wheat 
plants growing in adverse conditions. 
Much discussion has taken place regarding 

its origin in some other way than 4 plant 
perpetuated by its seed. As it usually ap. 
pears among fall wheat that has been winter- 
cilled, it seems quite natural to suppose it is 
a degenerated condition of the wheat, and 
thore are not a few farmers who insist upon 
this as being the only correct explanation of 
its presence under such circumstances, 
Thus it is that few questions at a Farmers 
Tnatitute wiil lead up to a more lively dis- 
cussion than that which deals with the origin 
of chess. . ; 

It seems remarkable that, if this is the 
true origin of the plant, one cannot readily 
grow it from wheat, while there is no diffi- 
culty whatever in raising it from seeds of 
chess, Those who sow Wheat containing 
chess never fail to get a good crop, while 
those who are very careful to eow clean seed 
seldom are troubled with the weed, 

The followiug are some reasons why a 
person should be ready to conclude that this 

lant is no exception to others and depends 
or its perpetuation upon the seeds which it 
matures : 5 qiw 

1. The plant is widely different from 
wheat in appearance ; so much so that botan- 
ists place it in the genus Bromus, while 
wheat belongs to the genus Triticnm. Couch 
grass (Zhitieum repens) being in the same 
genus as wheat, comes much nearer in its 
characters than chess, does, and yet no one 
ever hints that it is derived from wheat, 1f 
chess is a degenerated condition of wheat 
we might reasonably expect some resem- 
bJance to the plant from which it was de-

2. The most devoted evolutionist would 
not expect to see devélop in the short space 
of a few montlis, owing’to the cffect of frost, 
a plant so uolike in stracture, form and. 
habit to thatfrom which itis derived. Itis 
only through long periods of time that such 
modificationi/in'a plant can ‘take plece as to) 
change its character so much that it may be 
viewed as a new species, But in this case 
one season brings about such a remarkable 
change that the plant is ranked in another) 
genus—a more vomprehensive term than 
apectes, | 

3. If chess be sown it yieids cheas, If it 
were degenerated wheat, and sown under 
favorable surroundings, it should soon return 
to wheat ; for we observe both in animal 
and plant life that a deteriorated form will 
return to its proper nature when conditions 
are suitable for growth, Some have gone so 
far as to say chess wil! not grow from seed, 
but this is a mistake that can casily be seen 
by sowing some of the seed. 

5, Chess will matnre seed under adverse 
conditions, though the plant is only two or 
three inches high ; while if surroundings are 
favorable it grows three or four feet high 
before seed is matured. This may account 
for its never being seen in good crops, while 
it may be seeding the ground for a more 
suitable time, when the crop in which it is 
seeded is injured by frost: then this hardy 
annual (the seeds of which possess great 
vitality) is ready to take the vacant soil and 
yield « crop no longer hid from the farmer's 
eye. ‘ ' 
=5. The conclusions arrived at by all men 
who make plaut life a special study are, (a) 
that chess is a typical plant, producing seed 
yearly, which gives rise to plants of the same 
character ; (b) that a seed of wheat cannot 
be sown so as to produce chess, and (¢) that 
chess cannot produce wheat nuder the most 
favorable conditions for growth, 

6, In instances where parts of a plant, 
Apparently a combination of chess and 
Wheat, Were 60 mixed as to seem but one 
plant, close examination proved them to be 
parts of separate plants, and that the appar 
ent union was not rewl. In some cases 
microscopic examination has been required 
to Di it. ‘ 

7. Wheat has been grown in some place 
and often winter-kllled and no Abe hea 
appeared. ‘l’here are places where chess is 
unknown, and wheat in these passes through 
all the vicissitudes which seem favorable to 
the development of this weed in other parts 
where the weed is common. Farmers care- 
ful in using olean seed often have winter- 
killed wheat unacvompanied by chess, 

8. Liberal rewards have been offered by 
agricultural papers to any one who an

wheat, and as yet no Successful competitor

With these facts before us, it does seem 
difficult for x person to accept a theory 
which demands greater concéssions than the 
most sweeping form of evolution Vhough 
this plant may appear under circumstances 
difficult to explain, we are forced to believe 
thatif its origin is carefully considered it will 
not require one to pin his faith to views 80 
antagonistic to the teachings of science ay

The Daily Herald of St. Joseph, Mo., thus 
describes the Smead System of ventilation as 
exemplified in an eight room school building 
in that city. This system will be used in 
the new Deseronto High School. The air 
which circulates through the building first 
enters the basement through open windows 
into the fresh airroom. Whis room is requir 
ed to be kept scrupulously clean, as all the 
air that circulates through the school house 
first passes through it. This air then passes 
through apertures in the brick walls which 
surround the furnace into a chamber above 
the furnace. It is here heated and passes on 
through shafts to the rooms above, In each 
yoom ® number of small ventilators are 
placed in the baseboard above the floor and 
the air, as it becomes cooled and fouled, 
sinks and passes out these openings. With 
the fire in the furnace, but just started up, 
a calculation is made from an anemometer 
test, which showed the air to be moving in 
at arate which would furnish an entirely 
fresh supply every eight minutes. From the 
foul air ventilators the air passes down into 
the foul air chambers and passes under the 
vault seats, completely drying all excrement, 
and it then passes out of the building im- 
mediately through the vent shaft, The 
passage of the air through the building is so 
continuous and so rapid that the air of the 
so-called foul air chamber keeps seemingly 


i The current from all surrovnding parts is 
directly towards the vault chamber, whether 
from the seats above or from the foul air 
chamber on the side, A constant current 
from these directions out of the vent flue is 
kept up, and uir in the building is not taint- 
ed from them in the slightest. One of the 
tests made to show the rapidity with which 
the air circulated was pouring a few drops 
of penneroyal on the floor of the fresh air 
room. In two and one-half minutes it hod 
circulated throughout the building and had 
returned to the foul air room. 

In the summertime when it is not desired 
to use the furnaces, the air passes directly 
from the fresh air chamber to the rooms. 
Such artificial aid to circulation as isneeded 
is furnished by a fire built under the vent 
shaft. This keeps up the movement of the 
atmosphere as well as is done by building a 
fire under the entire furnace, So far this 
has been the only fire needed, 

Tp each room the regulation of the current 
is under direct and easy control of the 
teacher. Warm and cold air both enter by 
the same shaft and the regulation of either 
by the teacher in no way depends or inter- 
feres with the current in other rooms. Inthe 
Young building there are four furnaces, but 
two to be used at a time, excepting in ex- 
tremely cold weather. 

This school building seems well construct- 
ed, well lighted und well adapted to its 

urpose., It cost $22,000 and the apparatus 
‘or heating and ventilation oost $2860. The 
cost of the building was about $1300 leas than 
the estimated cost by the architect and the 
beard feels pleased that it has secured as 
good facilities as it has for the money ex-

Thad been three months at Tide Hall. 
It sounds like a grand place, but it 
wasn’t grand at all—only a ruinous old 
prick house standing behind a row of 
‘seraggy poplar trees on a dreary stretch 
of seashore, where the rocks broke the 
tide into white sheets of foam when it 
thundered up twice a day, and the very 
shrubs in the garden were sprinkled with 
gilt spray when the wind came from the 

Here, all alone, except for a deaf old 
man who came to work in the garden 
and bring coal and water, lived Mrs.

“You dre a darling,” said Jack. 

“There's Aunt Cadgett’s cane thump- 
ing on the floor,” cried I. ‘Her signal. 
She wants me.” . 

Aunt Cadgett was unusually exacting 
that night. I thought I never should 
get her settled to-her satisfaction, and in 
the midst of it I remembered that I had 
left the jewel casket down stairs. Sup- 
pose that she should take a fancy to in- 
spect. it, as she often did at night! I 
trembled at the idea, 

Fortunately, hiowever, she did not, and 
I crept quietly down stairs after she was 

laughed at him, and wondered what Dora 
could possibly see inhim. But TI liked 
him, and I couldn’t help it. 

So when Mrs. Cadgett’s summons came 
I thought I might as well be unhappy at 

Tide Hall as on Twenty-seventh street. 

Thad plenty to do, All the housework, 
‘except what old Owen could do, fell to 
my share, and my old relative required 
endless waiting on. But then, when she 
was in her more genial moods, she would 
tell me the history of hey old tapestries 
and antique furniture, show me her jewel 
casket, and even permit me to clasp 
around my neck a certain old necklace, 
stained purple with the glow of ame- 
thysts, and outlined around with tiny 
white diamonds. 

“It has been in the Cadgett family for 
a hundred and fifty years,” said she. 
“My husband’s niece, Jemima Cadgett, 
expects to inherit it, but it is mine to 
leave to whom I please. And though 
Jemima wants my jewels she isn’t will- 
ing to come here and live with me!” 

Nor was the amethyst necklace all of 
the Cadgett jewels. There was a soli- 
taire diamond, as large as a. cherry stone, 
setinaring. There wasan odd cameo 
brooch and a pair of sleeve buttons of 
‘pigeons’ blood” rubies, :and a quaint 
little dagger with its hilt incrusted in 
small brilliants. I was never tired of 
looking at these trinkets, 

“Yes, child, yes, they're pretty 
enough,” Mrs, Cadgett had said, ‘*but 
what use are they to an old woman like 
me? I sometimes think it isn’t safe for 
me to keep them here in this solitary 
place, and only two women in the house, 
Only, to be sure, nobody knows of 

‘Are they very valuable, Aunt Cad- 
gett?” asked I, for by that name she had 
bidden me to call her. 

“They're worth a thousand dollars at 
the very least,” said she, 

So that one stormy night when a mas- 
culine figure emerged out of ithe flying 
spray and deepening twilight close to 
the back door, I gave a great start. 
Owen had trudged to his home and I 
was ali alone, amusing myself, as I often 
did on the sly, by looking at Aunt Cadg- 
ett’s ornaments and trying their effect 
on myself before the hall mirror, with a 
strange breathless sense the while of 
transgressing some unwritten law, for 
the old lady never knew but that they 
were safely locked in her chiffonier, of 
which I kept the key, Of course, it was 
wrong, but I was only 17, and I Jed such 
a solitary life, 

Thad the jeweled dagger stuck through 
my hair, and the necklace clasped around 
my neck, and was holding the candle 
first this way and then that to catch the 
coruscations of the tiny facets, when, 
chancing to turn my head, I w a face 
flattened against the window gla A 


Jack was asleep, too, lying in an un- 
consciously graceful attitude, with his 
cheek pillowed against his arm, and 
there where I had left it, after we had 
both admired the antique ornaments, 
was the leather case on the dresser shelf. 

“Thank goodness!” I said to myself, as 
I put it back into the chiffonier drawer 
and noiselessly turned the key. 

T sat beside Aunt Cadgett’s bed that 
night, catching what scraps and frag- 
ments of sleep I could, for her rheuma- 
tism racked her fiercely and she was to 
take her medicine every two hours. 
And when I woke in the early morning 
she was sweetly sleeping, the sunshine 
streamed cheerily across the floor, and 
Jack was gone! 

Dora,” said Mrs, Cadgett tome the 
next day, ‘bring me my jewel case.” 

I obeyed, thinking but little of the 

“Open it,” said the old lady. 

I opened it. There was only tle faded 
velvet lining with its worn compart- 
ments. Nota trinket remained. I gave 
a great start. 

“Oh!” I cried, “where are the jewels?” 

“T suppose you haven't stolen ‘em?” 
said Mrs. Cadgett. 


‘Nor old Owen?” 

“Of course not.” 

“No one else has been in the house?” 

T looked at Mrs, Cadgett. She leoked 
at me with eyes that glittered like 
piercing dagger points. I fell, sobbing, 
on my knees, and buried my faceiin the 
bed clothes. 

‘Jack has been here,” said L “He 
slept in the kitchen that rainy night. 
He saw the jewels. I was trying them 
on— Oh! Aunt Cadgett, it was very 
wrong and wicked of me, but I meant 
no harm! Oh! I’m quite, quite sure of 
that! And if any one has stolen your 
jewels” —— 

“No one has stolen them, child,” said 
Mrs. Cadgett, with a sort of low, chuck- 
ling laugh. *‘They'’re safe here, under 
my pillow, where I put them that night 
after you brought them up here. I man- 
aged somehow to take the key out of 
your dress pocket and hobble to the chif- 
fonier after you were asleep, I knew 
there was a man down stairs—I had 
heard his voice—and I thought my treas- 
ures would be safest under my own hand. 
Besides, I couldn't bear the idea of havy- 
ing a sly traitor in the house. You 
haven't been sly, Dora; you have been 
confessing it.all. Don’t cry, little girl; I 
forgive you.” 

“But I don’t deserve to be forgiven!” 
Isobbed out. “I have been sly. Give 
your jewels to Jemima Cadgett, please— 
give her everything!” 

Mrs Cadgett smiled and shook her 

“Now,” said she, “tell me all about

Robert Barker and His Carcer—How the 
Iden First Occurred to Him—Edinburgh 
Painted as a Beginner—A Rival Claim- 
ant—The Panorama of Joan of Arc. 
Robert Barker is generally credited 

with being the first painterof panoramas 

as we know them today. Ie was born 
in Edinburgh, where he lived for si 
years during the last century, Or 
he made his living by painting portraits, 
and it is said of him that the first notion 
of a picture that would take in theentire 
scene visible from a certain point on 
eyery side occurred to him when he was 
sitting on the top of Carlton hill in 

Scotland's capital. Ie went home and 

began painting on a cylindrical surface a 

picture of the town as it appe to any- 

| body viewing it from that famous emi- 
nence, whic would inelude Arthur's 
seat, the Castle Rock and the distant 

Firth of Forth. 


His first picture was on paper pasted 
on to linen. He came to London with it, 
and invoked the patronage of Sir Joshua 
Reynolds, who declared the plan of such 
a picture so impracticable that he would 
willingly, he said, get out of his bed at 
night time to inspect the work of art if 
it could be produced. When Barker did 
actually surmount all difficulties and 
opened his panoramic exhibition in 
Castle street, Leicester square, skeptical 
Sir Joshua was as goad, or almost as 
good, as his promise. He sallied forth 
one morning in his slippers from. his 
breakfast table to see the marvel, and, 
having received ocular demonstration 
that a panorama was a possibility, gen- 
crously congratulated the artist on his 

The first picture was painted in a cir- 

cle, the diameter of which was twenty- 

five feet, but afterwards Barker became 
more ambitious. He had succeeded with 

Edinburgh, why should he not try Lon- 

don? This he at once set to work doing, 

and he produced a picture taken from 
an elevated position in the old Albion 
mills, near Blackfriars’ bridge, By dint 
of “pegging away,” and with the assist- 
ance of, one or two kindly and wealthy 
patrons, such as Lord Elcho, Barker had 

Cp trived to snatch pecuniary success 

out of the jaws of apparent failure, and 

five years after he arrived in London, in 

798, he took the lease of a piece of 

ground in Cranhourn street and erected 

thereon a large building simply and 
solely for the purpose of exhibiting his 
panoramasthere. A jointstock company 
helped him to find funds for this build- 
ing, where he lad three rooms, in the 
largest of which the diameter of the pic- 
ture was ninety fect, and the chief open- 
ing attraction was a representation of 

a review of the fleet at Spithead, This 

succeeded so well that the inventive Bar- 

ker bought up the shares in his own com- 
pany and became sole proprietor. 

From this time onward the Leiceters 

square panorama was ofie of the lions of 

London, and its inventor having made a 

thoroughly good thing out of it, and 

having pleased and improyed the minds 
of countless spectators, died in the year 

1806, leaving his profitable occupation to 

his son, Henry Aston Barker, ‘‘who kept 

on the business still, resigned,” or not as 
the case might be, ‘unto the heavenly 
will.” At all events Barker the younger 
wasa conscientious panoramist, for he 
journeyed all oyer Europe in his search 
for ‘‘subjects,” He ‘tpanoramed” Malta 
and Elba, and in the course of his visit 
to the latter place interviewed the great 

Napoleon. He illustrated Nelson’s most 

famous sea fights, and be went to Con- 

stantinople and Waterloo to make draw- 
ings of each, 

From Waterloo he journeyed on to 

Paris, which the allied troops were then 

occupying, in order to obtain perfectly 

correct accounts of the dispositions of 
the forces from the actual leaders in the 
fight. As no inventor is ever allowed to 
be the first in the field, it may be well, 
in the interests of historical accuracy, to 
say that Robert Barker's fame is troubled 
by a rival discoverer of panoramas, one 

Professor Breisig, of Danzig; but it is 

acknowledged that Barker was the first 

actually to paint and exhibit a panoram- 
ic picture on a large scale. 

The latest development of the pano- 
ramic art is to be seen, along with other 
wonders, at Paris. Patriotism has in- 
spired some enterprising Gaul with the 
very happy thought of seizing the oppor- 
tunity, for interesting his countrymen 
and women and the whole world in the 
story of Joan of Arc, He has according- 
ly had painted and is exhibiting a colos- 
sal and beautiful panorama of the life of 
the Maid of Orleans in several scenes. 
Realism is, of course, to the fore, and 
during the battle scenes before Orleans 
the peal of trumpets is heard, while the 
painting of the groups of figures in the 
coronation scene at Rheims and in other 
episodes is said to be marvelously life- 
like. This panorama, if it does nofhing 
else, affords an agreeable way of learn- 
ing the chief facts in the life of a great 
historical character, 

Many people will wish that they could 
learn all their history in the same easy 
fashion, ‘To have well painted tableaux

Catharine McLaughlin, an inmate of the

The Only Way. 

The Ontario states that Belleville was 
tioubled with farmers and others selling 
apples and potatoes in bags leas than the law 
requires, The health inspector took up the 
matter and bringing a case into the police 
court soon effected a remedy. Who will 
apply the remedy in Deseronto ? 

Exorbitant Railway Fares. 

The new railroad law has gone into effect 
in Michigan and only two cents per mile can 
now be charged for carrying passengers. 
Railway fares are exorbitant in all parts of 
Canada, The people have most generous y 
subsidized the ditlerent railways of the 
country, The railways have uot appreciated 
their kindness, As they own our parliament 
there is but little Lope of any legislation 
similar to that of Michigan.

The Canadian Pacific Railway Company

of the telegraph companies who have spoiled 
the appearance Of our streets by planting 
unsightly poles thereupon, - But our counci 
appears to have a fear of corporations and 
have, therefore, us usual done nothing,

Hastings is becoming notorious for its 
increasing number of criminal cases. ‘To 
what may we attribute this sad state of 
affairs. Much of it is due, no doubt, to 
negligence on the part of parents who appear 
too generally to exercise no control over 
their boys and girls.
