Just As the raft made one of its Wrech Uig obedience to the heaving of the sea the body rolled off into the Ocean. It scarcely touched the surface when something flashed through the Blue water an immense pair of jaws opened and closed with ferocious and the remains of the negro were swallowed by an enormous shark which dogged the raft Nith that persistency shown by those hyenas of the deep when there i-5 sickness and death on Board ship.

The elderly spinster finds in the impassioned offer she Twenty years Ngo a Fountain of Reju senescence. Glancing Over it she realizes that she was once a Belle and a Beauty and beholds her former life in a Mirror much More congenial to her tastes than the one that confronts her in her dress ing room. The widow indeed derives a most Sweet and isolem Consolation from let ters of the beloved one who has journeyed before her to the far off land from which there comes no and where she Hopes one Day to join him.

The Young couple agreed married but the old imperialist aware of the be pub can tendencies of his daughter s suitor gave an absolute refusal to Gilbert s demand for her hand and there was no Hope that he could Ever be brought to change his Resolution. At this Point the Story turns into Rorn Loftice and its later incident might form the subject of a the lovers resolved to prove the Depths of by dying together and accordingly proceeded to a Little inn at a Village on the Banks of the there having decked themselves with Flowers and exchanged a kiss Gilbert fired one barrel of a revolver at his mistress and immediately discharged another into his own breast. Both were severely wounded but neither fatally they were tended cured but not pardoned. The father took Back his Daugh Ter and it is said persuaded her some Little time after to marry one of his colleagues. As for Gilbert his despair knew no and when the War broke out he went to seek from prussian bullets the death he had failed to inflict by Hin own hand. But he escaped unscathed and then in he madness threw himself Tito the insurrection again spared death though he fought desperately again it the Vorsa Illais exposing his life in the most reckless Way. He arrested and transported to Neil Caledonia whence he has now returned pardoned for his poli tical crimes but not for the attempted Mur Der. No sooner Hod he landed at Brest on his return Home than he was arrested by a couple of gendarme its he was taking his first meal on French soil after eight Yean exile.

To Kingston he went and traced Ier to a occupied by an old Man. About whom the neighbors knew no More Han that he was an old Man. He was an elderly in valid never went out never went to the door saw and How was he caught and examined there was Noth ing known about him to justify the police m entering the and the detective walked round the place i company with the wondering what to do nest. The Back of the was a Garden in which was a Kennel containing a big dog or not containing him for he was lying out i the Sun at the end of his Chain. No sign of life was visible in the. Jump Over the Wall and kick that dog Thea hide Seh hid the said the Detec Tive to the in a moment the Man was Over the Wall and the dog was howling from the effects of a tick in he ribs. Neighbouring dogs joined i the chorus and at the window appeared the old gentleman. No one was about the dog continued to howl and his owner came Down the Garden to see what was the matter. Beneath the Well made Gray wig the detective recognized the object of his search and in a moment Tho arrest was made. Dyl Nii tug Ether.

In its manufacture the sponges Are first thoroughly beaten with a heavy Hammer i order to crush All the Mineral and vegetable impurities so that they can be easily washed out they Are then dried and pared with a Sharp knife the pairings being sewed to Gether. The fabric whih is thus obtained is described As being free from Alj the Dan. Ger which sometimes arises from the absorption dyes into the system it absorbs without checking the perspiration Boas to diminish the danger of taking cold it is a bad conductor and therefore helps to maintain a uniform surface temperature it can be More readily cleansed than the Ordinary Woollen garments its flexibility de creases the liability of chaffing and the ease with which it can be employed in shoes stockings drawers undershirts and other articles of clothing will it is thought Ren Der the new material especially useful As a Protection against rheumatic and pulmonary attacks.

In the process the ashes of the bark Are powdered and mixed with the purest Clay that can be obtained from the Beds of the land being preferred As it tithes up a larger Quantity of the Ash and thus produces a stronger kind of Ware. Though the proportions of Ash and Clay Are varied at the will of the maker and according to the Quality of the bark a Superior kind of pottery is produced by a mixture of equal parts of Fine Clay and ashes. All sorts of vessels of Small or Large size for household or other purposes Are made of this kind of Ware As Are also vases or ornamental articles Many of which Are painted and glazed.
