"We demand the free and unlimited coinage of both gold and silver at the present legal ratio of 1C to I, without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation.

Never. Thiis 'Is a direct contradiction of history. All changes In the ratio have been made in an effort to make the laws conform to the commercial ratio.

Joubert did not join .in the conversation, and did not ev'ci 1 seem to be listening to us. ' "'''' .'" ; "What will you take- '*ar r ' your thoughts?" I said to him at lasti: • i "Oh! they arc not worth]:mucbr. I was thinking just then, of.anJneidenj which occurred once at a club in a small provincial town where I happened" to. oe staying." ' "'".'.". '. i • "Tell us about it!" exclaimed one of the other men, and the captalrili]g-hfr ed a cigarette and, putting bte.ellxwon the mantel-shelf against which he ; had been leaning, began his story:. .. j "Well, it was when. I was in garrison at M—, one of the 'dullest and most stupid of provincial towns. • There was nothing in tho'worldfor«fe11*wto do with himself there, no th&fte'r;.evert, only a low music-haJl. ' j "When I was off duty I gradually got into the ha/bit of turning in, totheUnioii club, which, by-the-bye, was thg only one the town possessed. .^ ! "It was called the 'Union, 1 I ehoulfl imagine because there was always p, dispute of some kind, or another Jfbtafc on there. There was very littleiplpy at this club except at, tae time; pi, th£ three annual fairs, each of^which/Aast;•ed a week. One autumn..afternopri,. just at the opening of one of tliese/airs, I happened to go to the club ratberewljf. •There were a fair numbcr'of-men'theit 'ag-umfit u gentleman whose reputation is so well 'known.' ''"The individual 'who had called out bad never.been to the club before, and did not know M. de Mortens at- all. We had all been standing 1 round the lable close to each other, and on seeing another 'plnycr put, bis hand into my hat, it was very natural that the man Btiould have thought it his duty to warn me. .• On hearing 1 my explanation he apologized most humbly to M. de Mertens, end several of- tbe acquaintances of the latter gathered round and expressed their regret that such an insult should'have been offered him. "We then continued bur play, and M. de Merfens soon i,*ter left the club'. Three days passed, and I heard nothing more of the young roaa. In. shield- ing.htm.as iihad done, my first thought had beenlof his father, and I bad deter- 'mined to save from disgrace the name of the brave, soldier of Magenta. Of course, I could quite understand that the young man should now shrink 'from,seeing me again, butstill it struck 'ine 'as rather strange that in some way, "eiti'er direct or Indirect, he did not attempt to express his thanks. "One evening, however, just as I was 'goin'g'out to po.y some visits, my orderly informed me that a lady wished to sec me. I went into the drawing-room, and there I found a woman of about 45 : 'vears of age. She was very dignified- looking, and there was'at open, honest expression about her face which fascinated me. " 'I am Madame de Mertcns,' she said, simply. 'My son told me- everything bout the affair at the club, and I have pme to thank you with (ill my heart or having preserved for us intact the ibnor of our name.' ":'Madame ,' I began.; but she in- errnpted me in her emotion and nerv- msness, ;"My son had got'entangled in van- lus-ways, and in desperation had taken ib'play. It appears he had lost every ->en.ny Vie possessed that night. You now the rest, alas!' '"I -felt very much embarrassed, for he poor mother's grief was terrible to vitness. She was still standing there n front of me, her face was deadly pale, and the tears were trembling on ler long dark eyelashes. '"'" 'He is young, madame-; you must riot take It to heart so,' I stammered. It: was just a moment's weakness. I vill see -your son, and—' ".'No, captain,' she said, shaking her lead, sadly, 'he is no longer here « ' *' * he has enlisted, nnd is already on his way with the regiment.* " • We had all been, listening attentively to, Ca.pt. Joubert's story, and when he stopped speaking there was silence for a r few~minutes, , • "And what happened to M.' de Mertens, captain?" asked one of the group. 'Did you ever hear?" "He is dead. * * * Six months ago I received a. letter from Kelung—a pitiful little letter—written with very pale nk,'and on a sheet of paper that was all crumpled and yellow with age. There were only a few lines for me to read. I know them by heart. They were as follows: "I am mortally wounded » • • Admiral Courbet has jnst brought me the cross; but * » • I am dying. I am sending It to you, roy poor cross * * * for you saved me, and I should like you to'wear it » * *' ! "This is why, my friends, instead, of wearing the decoration which I received 'from the chancellor, you always see-me with the sergeant's cross which poor. Mertens sent me. Poor boy!

The. street railway companies of New York aad other citiee, including th* 'erkes line in Chicago, are charged with having carefully marked out a BCheme which, will cause trouble in the abor world. The railroads call it a ilaa for mutual protection, and improvement of the service. The employes say it is just an cxten- ,ion of the blacklist idea, and that its lim is the crushing of the labor organizations. Director Thomas F. Ryan, of Metropolitan Traction company, is credited with the authorship of the >lan. According to the traction employe*, he is going around among the directors >f the various corporations, suggesting bat.they all agree not to employ men. discharged by any corporation ia tho combine. The blacklist is supposed to be aimed at dishonest conductors or offensively vigorous strikers. If it ia adopted the names of discharged em- ployes will be issued in the form of a cir- :ular, weekly or monthly, and distributed among the corporations. To guard against the possibility of a discharged man giving an assumed name—which is now against the law-there will also be a regular Bcrtillpiu'e- 30rt of complexion, measurements, marks, etc. In this way the traction companies hope to keep their pay-rolls uncontaminatcd. Of course, the agreement, when made, will be secret, but the companies credited with looking favorably on the scheme are the Consolidated Traction company, ot New Jersey "the Metropolitan, of New York; the Brooklyn Heights, the Pitteburgh road, Baltimore City railroad, Philadelphia Traction company, Albany ^City company. Union railway of New York, and the Yerkes roads of Chicago. : SHINGLES LAST A CENTURY. Roof i of MtchlKU) W^lt«. Pod" BMltt Climatic R»vm)t«- There are said to be Michigan, whit* cedar shingles now' doing good service on roofs in that state that have been in: full exposure and wear for over 75 years. It is thus seen that climate aflecto the durability of shingles, and the fact that! white cedar is the natural product of< Michigan and red cedar of the Pacific, coast is held to be proof that the red cedar is naturally adapted for use on the, Pacific coast and the' white for -use lft| such sections OB the'mi'ddle'.an.a northwestern states, etc. A pecuuliar objection is brou}*t against the red cedar by wood BJI acid which is, in, flw climate of certain sections, eo> acted upon, by water as to 1 corrode rapidly the nails'- with which the shinglee ore fastened- onto .roofs,, the rust extending to the-', wood around tbe nails, and soon causing « leaky roof—this action explaining the 1 boles so often to be seen around tiei nails in red cedar roofs. Another point offered for consideration, in this connection is the fact, as stated, thata shingle. Is ruined by Win drying, and that J«», tdln-dried lumber can be regarded a« of. equal value for outside work to th«*| which Is air-dried. •': THIEF'S HEART TOUCHED.
