The dram Gold family were spending Ali div last Day. Save one in England. They had driven out to View the wonderful fortification through which at the naval exhibition the week before her majesty a ship Rodney had from a distance of five Miles at sea. Sent a Ball from a gun of 100 tons. There were three feet of solid steel three feet of Iron six feet of crossed Oak timbers six feet of Concrete and six feet of brickwork and there the penetrating Ball was seen with its path through Twenty four feet of seemingly impregnable barriers cleanly Cut behind it just ready to drop out of the brickwork. The drum golds were americans so it was perfectly natural for Myrna dram Gold to say As she looked with considerable Awe at the sinister pointed Ball a shows what a half dozen such ships might do if they were in new York a a that a a place they can to get into though Quot replied her Cousin Atlee dram Gold very decidedly. A hush your British divinity will hear you a smiled Myrna glancing around the fortification spot to where miss Edia Aultman stood talking calmly with or. And mrs. Dram Gold. A what Power there must have been behind that Ball to make it dare attempt such a bulwark As that i should think the first glimpse of it was enough to make any common missile swerve and go a but that is not a common missile and you see it has almost gone through a replied Atlee who seemed to be in a state of suppressed excitement that Day. A and Myrna you know that in the heat of conflict common sense deserts us and we dare that to which in our sober senses we would not Myrna laughed at first at his fiery countenance then at his metaphor. She understood him perfectly. Atlee had fallen in love with miss Aultman and although neither he nor any one else believed that Edna would accept him he intended to propose to her before departing for America. Myrna was intensely amused at the situation but she strove to conceal her amusement from Atlee. She had a Way herself of encouraging any amount of seeming sentiment but the real article she always laughed at. It was so ludicrous she thought. She Felt that she must Dis simulate. A i wish you even better Success than this monster Ball has attained a she said. A i Hope you will make your Way against All obstacles if you will let me know when it is about to happen i will assist a will you really a cried Atlee not noticing the fun in his Cousin s eyes. A if Edia were not so stand Offish and dignified i should not mind it so much. Do you know the other evening i pressed her fingers a Little but she withdrew them so quietly and dusted them off with her handkerchief so daintily that i do believe she thought it was a worm or something similar that she had Myrna laughed quietly then sobered with the remark a How can you like her a a Why do we like ices in summer a a because they Are Chilly i a and Sweet. Then miss Aultman is so different from the other girls whom i have known and pretended to a i understand. But if she should accept you which i still must doubt you will have to go through life in a perfectly dignified and courtly manner and when you proposed Atlee i dread it for a i shall try my Luck to Morrow. It is my last Day and Myrna i rely upon you to give me an Opportunity to do a in what Way a a you can quietly withdraw when we three get together. I do Hope father and Mother will not go with us a a How very considerate of his friends feelings a Man in love can be and i really had forgotten where we were a to Morrow we Are to Board the warship Rodney and have a look at the gun which fired the Little a so we Are. Atlee i have an idea a of your Mother does not leave the yacht Sha 11 we go on Board the Rodney to dinner As we had arranged a asked miss Aultman of Myrna soon afterwards. A we shall have no Chap a huh but Atlee is almost my brother. No one will be shocked if you and i go together with him but so far As dinner is concerned i shall not want any. I have a grumbling tooth and shall not be Able to talk much less and then Atlee Felt that Hie cup of happiness was overflowing. But Myrna forgot All about her painful tooth when once she was on Board ship. There was so much to be seen and the officers were so handsome and attentive that she was seated at the dinner table before she even thought of the sacrifice she had intended to make she glanced across the table at Atlee in affright. He was scowling darkly at her. A so i have ribbed for nothing a she thought a and i know for a certainty that Atlee would not care if i starved. Ill explain to him that i thought the dinner would be an Odd sort of place to propose in after All. Fancy handing a Young lady the Mustard with the words a Darling will you be mine if so take a spoonful of Mustard. And then with jealous tenderness to watch her handle her spoon with her delicate fingers and judge of the depth of her love by the depth of the Mustard which she takes or to see her cast it aside in wild disdain and your bleeding heart with it. No. Atlee must find a better place to propose i m. So she scowled Back at him with an intensity that would have certainly brought about a misunderstanding Between them had not an Accident occurred which changed the entire Tenor of their thoughts. Right in the midst of the servants and soups and sodas it came completely totally unexpectedly. It was a monstrous wave a heavy swell rolling in from across the Channel a swell which rocked even the Rodney wildly and sent waiters and diners and dishes and food in totally different directions. When the tumult subsided Myrna looked in vain for Atlee and miss Aultman having kept her own position by clinging desperately to the stationary sideboard just behind her chair. Where could they be an impulse bade her look under the table and with a guilty feeling she lifted the cloth and saw miss Aultman with her tiny boots in the soup Tureen and with her head upon Atlee a shoulder while lie held her very closely with one Arm a just exactly As if he hoped for a repetition of that awful wave and Clung frantically to the table leg with the other. A dear me a thought Myrna. A after All her fuss about the proprieties i really very am much shocked Atlee a she called a moment later a i am going up on deck i done to believe i can eat anything and. Really there does no to seem to be anything to a no need of your replied Atlee scrambling up from his Happy Tumble. A Media and i Are engaged. Wish us Joy a a where did it happen a asked Myrna elevating her hands in Surprise. A under the table a replied miss Aultman emerging from beneath the cloth with a bit of eggshell on her Yonkers statesman. Joi realism in Sweden. St tent travel around at the i Pense of the state. I notice that in Sweden the education of journalists is treated As a function of the state. Under this enlightened system the Young journalist gains a knowledge of the world by travelling at the expense of the taxpayer. He receives an allowance which owing to my ignorance of the swedish coinage i cannot reckon in pounds Sterling but it is evidently sufficient to enable him to study the institutions of Europe. If journalism were equally appreciated by our backward government i should Long ago have a practical acquaintance with the swedish currency. What would the Chancellor of the exchequer in any ministry say if he were requested to provide me with the necessary funds for a Continental tour the swedes take the sensible View that if journalists Are to instruct the Public opinion they a is sure to be a Good one. What is nest acquire the necessary informal a Tion at the Public charge. Swedish editors travel by railway in their own country without paying the fare. What would the British railway companies say if our Penny editors As Carlyle used to Call them demanded a similar privilege perhaps the spirit of emulation might be excited if some Penny editor were to make a journey without a ticket and when hauled before the nearest beak plead the swedish example As a justification. We done to hear enough about Sweden and this would i get a capital Opportunity for extolling that civilized land in an impressive manner. Presently we shall have troops of swedish journalists taking notes in our newspaper offices and expressing Surprise and pleasure to find that Gustavus Adolphus is still one of our protestant heroes. They will learn with pain however that a Distin statesman never reads the a you know on Board ship they always fill their ears with Cotton when the great guns Are fired for fear that the blood will Gus i Forth. Ill Tell Uncle and aunt that guns Are momentarily expected to belch their thunders and advise them to Stop their ears. But i need not Stop mine need i you will not care if i hear then i shall know what to say if any one Ever proposes to a i might have known you would make fun of me a ejaculated Atlee angrily turning his Back upon his Cousin and going around to the other Side of the fortification where miss Aultman was wondering what kept him away from her. Myrna did feel some compunction. It would be a terror to most people to propose to the fair Royal creature whom Atlee had chosen to love. How had it happened that Edia Aultman had Ever noticed them anyway if newspapers and even questions the Ca was not that Myrna had made and pacify Quot of the Penny editors to under Vances to her. She stood in too great stand what the Bouse of commons is fear of the aristocracy of England for j Aix iut. They will hear with amaze that. And her aunt and Uncle had al f meet that there is or rather there ways looked askance at the Friendship was an education Bill in which no pro it must be Atlee a doings and yet she j vision was made for sending journalists could not believe that Edia Aultman to the italian lakes. Personally i in would Ever consent to be his wife. Cine to believe that this omission was but she would help him if she could the real reason Why the Bill was with accordingly. She was As Sweet As pos i drawn. At any rate before january sible All the Way Home and when part next there ought Tobe such an agitation gushed cycling in France. Mom than 100,000 persons who own their own wheels. Cycling having taken such a Strong hold on popular favor in this country it is interesting to note certain figures which have been published with regard to the number of cyclists now in France. Owing to the tax levied on velocipede in 1892, this number can be very accurately gauged. Then the number of machines subject to this tax was slightly Over 130,000, while in the present year these figures have been increased by another 30,000. At the time of the great exhibition not one third of the present number of cyclists existed and the impetus Given to this Branch of sport was in a Large manner due to a big race from Paris to Brest and Back organized at a later Date. Roughly about one person in 200 inhabitants now rides a machine of some sort or other. Naturally this average varies in different parts of the country. The southwestern and Southeastern districts As Well As the Midland which Are All mountainous can none of them show that More than 150 persons out of every 1c0,000 Cycle while in Corsica Only nine in that number Ever put foot on the pedal. The highest average is reached in the department of the Seine and Oise and Here it is found that no less than 1,010 people in every7 100,000 have taken to the wheel. In fact in All districts near the capital the numbers Are very High while the contrast is attained again in Brittany and the extreme Northeast provinces. The most interesting statistic to Many will be that relating to the female devotee of the wheel. On very Trust worthy information it is stated that there is one lady cyclist in every Twenty in this country so that in All something like 8,000 females Are addicted to this form of letter to London Telegraph. San cure for women. It a Sun cure a which is rather hero to treatment in this kind of weather is what a prominent physician recommends for women who spend most of their time indoors. A a window Sun Bath is better than nothing a he says a but having made up your mind to try the Sun cure do it with a will. Walk the sunny Side of the Street choose the sunny Side of the Street cars and trains and sit stand walk or lie in the Sun at All possible times and seasons. If you can get Only one hand or foot in the Sunshine do that much and whenever possible let the Sun rest on your hair. The hair is a wonderful conductor of the health giving currents and when you take your Sun Bath let it hang Loose in the brightest rays you can find. Do As the ancient grecian women did lie in the Sunshine with your hair spread loosely Over your face and it will show you the effects of this treatment directly. The unpleasant dryness which always follows Winter weather and Furnace or steam heat will disappear and it will grow Glossy and Strong again. Fasse Geaw in a Tyre. Londoners Ali inc they have the Best rapid transit system. The failure of the Effort to furnish new York with an acceptable plan of rapid transit has drawn renewed attention to the suitability for that purpose of the great Iead system now operating in London. This consists of a circular car which travels within a tube running sixty feet underground. It has been running so successfully for four years that another line on the same principle is being constructed. The ears can be made Light As Day the motion is smooth and the Supply of pure fresh air is perfect. Accidents Are made impossible by automatic appliances. The passengers Are carried up and Down to the stations by electric elevator. Since the system has been in operation there have been no accidents and no serious stoppages of trains. This system interferes with All other kinds of traffic less than any other and is infinitely less costly when compared with the accommodation afforded and the difficulties overcome. Its construction can be carried on without the slightest surface disturbance As it is Clear of water Gas electricity and sewerage service sub cellars and foundations of buildings and whatever it removes is replaced by something of Freater tensile and bearing strength t has the advantage of disturbing no existing rights it has neither right of Way nor damage compensations to pay for. It has proved a Success from both a financial and an engineering Point of View and londoners Are convinced that they have the simplest and Best system of rapid transit in the Pittsburg dispatch. A new islam Quant a London correspondent of the Manchester courier publishes a remarkable account of a new Illuminant which if All that is said of it is True will push both Gas and electric Light very hard. For its production no machinery is required save that contained in a portable lamp neither larger nor heavier than is used with Coal Oil or paraffin. This lamp it is declared generates its own Gas. The substance employed is at present a secret jealously guarded by some inventive italians. The Cost is declared to be at most Only one fifth of that of Ordinary Gas and the resultant Light is nearly As Bright As electric Light and much whiter. A single lamp floods a Large room with Light. The apparatus can be carried around nearly As easily As a candlestick and seems both clean and odourless. A billion of coins. To gain an idea of a billion of coins place a $5 Gold piece upon the ground and pile upon it As Many As will reach Twenty feet in height then place numbers of single columns in close Contact forming a straight line and making a sort of Wall Twenty feet Gigli showing Only the thin edges of the Coin. Imagine two such Walls running parallel to each other and forming a Long Street it would be necessary to keep on extending these Walls for Miles nay hundreds of Miles and still be far Short of the required number and not until we had extended our imaginative Street to a distance of 2,286 a Miles that we shall have presented for inspection a billion of coins. The songs did it. It is now asserted that Moody and Sankey a hymns caused the persecution of the armenians by the turks. A Onward Christian soldiers a read in the turkish language breaths a Martini spirit and is Apt to be taken in a literal sense As an exhortation to fight the Turk. It is suggested As a possible explanation of the charges against prof. Toumaian that what was supposed to be his revolutionary language was the quotation of some such hymn the revivalists and the Sweet Singer in Israel should be sent to Yildiz Kiosk to explain that they sing in a Pickwick an digest.
