We stood beside the meadow bara, '*•.• The sun was sinking low /;J. Behind a bank of rosy clouds, Fringed in with amber glow. The evening crest shown o'er the hill, In disk of silver light, The mock-bird echo'd from the tre» To greet the coming night The running brook that, in It*: glee, Had babbled all day long, Was silent now as if to hear The coming twilight's song. The meadow stretched, so fair and green, Far as the eye could see. To distant hills with purple shade, Where slept the flower and bee. The twinkling of the sheep's sweet bell, Far down in the willow corps.e, And swaying with the evening wind. Was moved the clover tops. The evening's hand swept o'er the sky And softly lit the stars. And hung them in the open space Right o'er the meadow bars. My love's head on my shoulder fell. Her voice was sweet and low; Her lips met mine in sweet caress, AH in the twilight glow. —F. V. Wheeler, in Iroquis Magazine ba.ck, are you? Going back when here's gold to mAke us rich, waiting for us?" "It'll hav« to wait, then, mate," said Tom. "Gold's good, but it aint quite good enough." Bill looked from Tom to me and then from me to Tom, and his eyes shone like glow worms in the dusk of the tent "You meaa it, do you?" he said in a sort of hoarse whisper, "mean it?" An' says Tom with a sort of a gurgling laugh, seeing as how his throat were dry; "Bill!" I said u loufl as I could— "Bill!" He never turned his head—he never moved I went closer—I looke-d in hia face—then I knew. Bill was dead. His hollow eyes stared out straight before iira; his head was bent a little forward as if he was listening. With the sound of the water in his ears, with his nugget on the ground at his side—Bill was dead. We looked at him, but we said nothing.

Tom and me had come to Coolgardle together, being old mates, and then we come across Bill on the field. H< •we™ a queer chap always, were Bill Work? Well, I wont say as ever ! knew a hand on any diggin's as coulc beat Bill for work, take him al around. Early and late Bill were there whoever weren't. He woulc work eating; he would work talking— though it weren't much talking you would get out of Bill, not as a reglar thing, anyhow. Why, he seemed as i: he worked of nights after _e's turned in, did Bill, and it was all gold, every word of it. When Tom and me first come across him Bill was down on his luck. This tucker had just about panned out, and he hadn't not a shilling left to buy water, which seeing how water were a pound a bucket at Coolgardle just then, and scarce at that, wera awkard. Yes, I reckon we were a godsend to Bill, that's about what we were. Tom and me, when we offered to take him in mates. Not but what it was right enough for us, too. Tom and me had a matter of may be thirty pounds between us, and we were pretty old hands at the job, but the place were new to us, and Coolgardle, like most fields, had ways of its own. Now, Bill, he'd been here two months and he knew most all there was to know about the place, and so it come about as we went mates with Bill, and just then Bill was mighty glad to be took by anybody as could get a bit of tucker and a bucket of water—you bet. Bill wasn't to say big; but he was strong, and as wiry as they made 'em Tim and me was used to work, but bless ye. we ivern't in it not alongside of him at his best He was a good- looking chap enough, too. was Bill, leastways all you could see of him. which wasn't to say much, being he was that hairy and water being scarce you couldn't say not exactly as to color, but his eyes you could see, and Bill's eyes were out of the common. Look out they did from under his eyebrows eager and anxious like—always eager and anxious, as if he could see something rich just ahead of him. One tning was sure, Bill hadn't aJ- ways been a digger, no, nor yet for so very long, neither. We stopped at. Coolgardle for a month, and it was long enough, too. Gold rhere was. I admit, but it hadn't no sort of consistency. Ye might work till ye struck gold and mayhap get a nugget or two and thought ye had come on a good thing, and then, after you had broke your heart following of it up for days, you'd like as not kick up a nugget with the toe of your boot as you was going to work right atop of the ground. We were getting pretty n-ear full up of this, and Bill he was the fullest up of the lot. One day there came news that gold had been struck heavy to the northwest a matter of twenty miles off or so. Bill was wild to be off, and though we heard that there was no water found yet it stood to reason that somebody would find it, and anyhow, water carts were sure to go where there was gold. The new field was out beyond the red sunset range, and we concluded to see what it was like. Twenty miles don't sound much, but twenty miles over half sandy ridges carrying a five-gallon keg of water as well as tucker and tools up to a good bit of a job by the time ye get there. I wont say but what Bill was all there at the job—he was mostly always keen was Bill. We camped a.t last in a likely looking spot all by ourselves. Tom called it drygrass gully, by reason it was one sheet of some sort of short grass as yellow as gold and as brittle as straw. There was no time to lose, for do your best, you had to drink more of water or of another party to be seen from the ridge of our gully. It looked like a race between luck and thirst and the thirst were sure, while the luck were doubtful. I can't say I liked the look of things, no more didn't Tom, but Bill he was just wild. Anyhow we'd come and we were bound to give it a trial. For three days we worked in that gully early and late and every hour the water got lower, and we grew more and more thirsty. Why! Never in all ray life had I known what it meant before—our throats burned and ached, our eyes sunk in our heads, our hands began to tremble, and. work as hard as we might our skin got drier and hotter. We had found gold. It was no use trying to dig for it, but we had fossicked about over a good part of the gully and there was gold everywhere. But bless ye. what was tie good? That night when we knocked off there was only about a quart and a half left in the keg. I looked at Tom. and Tom looked at me. and I could .see that it was settled. "It's aU ap, mate." «aye Tom, "and a pity, too. thur." Bill looks round first at one and then the other of us, and then without a word he rises and flings himself out o£ the tent. I lifts the flap a bit and sees him marching down the gully a-throwing his arms above his head in the moonlight, for it were full moon that night. "Bill's cranky, Tom," says I. "Looks like it, mate," says Tom. "Well. I reckon he'll come to his bearing's by mornin'." With that Tom coils hisself up on his blanket and goes to sleep, and after a minute or two I does the $% r^o'™™ ™ day* I No need to say what it said, but when where lie lay. There we drank and drank again. Then we let the water ran over our hands and dipped our dry faces in the stream. At last we went back to Bill. We stood and looked at him, did Tom and me. "What's that in. his other hand, mate?" Tom said in a whisper. "It was a letter, worn and brown, and frayed along the edge. "Let's bury it with him, Tom," I said, "not us, mate. Fair doos atween mates—that's wot I say—mayhap it'll tell who it belongs to—read it, mate; it can't hurt no one now." I read the letter as well as I could. MASONIC. ffeneral Grand High Priest of Royal Arch Masons— Trestleboard Denting. Companion R. C. Leuimon of Toledo, who was elected general grand high priest of Royal Arch Masons at the session of the gpnerjil errand chapter held at Baltimore, Is; a native of Ohio and is 72 years old. .fndce Leinmon has been prominent In Siitsonry since his yonth. and is past grand ruasrer of the grand lodge of Ohio, past prand high priest of the grand chapter of Ohio, past grand commander of Ohio Knights Templars and an honorary mein- light when I wakes and looks around, j There were Tom lying where he drop-1 ped overnight, but I sees nothing of Bill. "Hillo," I tries to say, but I couldn't say it rightly, my throat wag that dry. So I stirs Tom up with my foot. "Bill aint hero, Tom," I says, "No more he ain't," says Tom, sitting up; the more water for you and me, mate." We scrambles out from undei the tent and looks around. The sun were just up, but there weren't a sign of Bill, look where we would. "The devil!" says Tom, sudden, looking hard at the tent, "He's been here, sure enough, and left this wrote. Here, Dick, fou're a scoilard, wot's this wrote on the tent?" I turns round, a.nd there, sure enough, on the flap of the tent, were wrote with something that looked like chalk: "You want to go back to Coolgardle —you can go. I've found what I came for, and it's mine now. Good-by— Bill." I read it out loud, and we stands and stares a.t the •writing and then at each other. "He's mad, Tom," says I at last, "and he's gone without a drain of water, poor beggar." "Mad or not, I reckon he's come across a nugget, and he means to keep it. Not if I knows it, mate, not by chalks. Fair doos atween mates, is wot I says, an' wot I says I sticks to." It were never much good arguing with Tom. It wasn't much that he'd say, but there was no turning him once he took a notion, and Tom was death on getting hold of Bill and sharing the nugget. At last 1 gave in and we risked it and started. It was easy to see the way Bill had gone, for there were his marks on the soft ground and sand, not clear, but as like as not the first steps that had ever been there since it was first made. He couldn't have gone far, Tom said, and he took the drop of water that was left and started. I'd have given it up hours before, but Tom held on 15ke a bulldog. Now and again we sucked the few drops of the water that was left, and then we went on again. At last we had drunk it every drop, and still the sun pourec down on our heads like white meia: out of a furnace. We staggered as we walked, and we could scarcely see foi the light that was in our faces. Our tongues had swelled up so big that :hey seemed to fill our mouths, and our throats were so dry they made a iind of whistling sound when we tried to speak. Hour after hour, and every lour like a month, and still we stru gled on. We couldn'; go back, and we couldn't say what we expected to get oing forward, but painfully, mechanically, doggedly, we staggered on. We had been trying for hours, or for what seemed like hours, to get to the op of a low range that seemed as if t went away from us faster than we ould travel. We had been so long hat the sun had gone down behind it at last. Suddenly I found myself in a blinding glare of sunlight once more, and then I knew, though I couldn't see, hat I had at last reached the top. I iut my trembling hand over my eyes, and little by little I began to see. At irst it was gold, gold, only a great ea of shining, dazzling gold—then in I had read it both Tom and me looked in Bill's dead face, and then we understood. It wasn't a new story—I had heard it often before—a story of a young, delicate wife and her hale children brought to want and disgrace by a thoughtless husband and father, and yet seeming to love him all the more. No wonder Bill was mad to get gol(j_ no wonder he looked sjixious and eager. "What's the address?" Tom asked me after a bit. I told him what was on the letter. Tom stooped and lifted the big nugget in both 'hands. "Right you was, mate," be said, "I reckon there's enough here to give them a start." Not another word was said. So Tom gave up his share; so Bill got his nugget after all.—New York Journal.

Oh, Yes, for there's go;:<3 here and no mistak*." I looked at Bill, but he said nothing. "Y«m, Tom," says I, "it's all we'll do to t«t back on the watw that left unless w» kare th« luck to fall in with some." Bill look-id frou one of u* to the tad at last k« broke out, "Going "•littering, flashing, blazing, it was wa- er. Tom was behind me now and I ried to shout, but I could only point nd wave my arms like a madman. In another minute Tom had come up— he was, like me, nearly dead, and staggered like a drunk, but te got there somehow. But where was Bill? I looked and Tom looked. There was the golden grass, and the low bushes, and the water that flashed and quivered in the low bottom, where the sunlight made a yellow haze round the trees that stood here and there with drooping boughs along the course of the creek, but not a living creature in sight—not a sign of the mate we had risked so much to find. We stood for a minute, and then Tom whispered hoarsely. "Look here, mate, wot's the odds about Bill? Here's water as is better nor nuggets." We staggered rather than walked down the slope with the level sun shining in our faces. It was hard work even with the sound of the water in our ears, but somehow we did it. We dragged one heavy foot after the other—doggedly, slowly, feebly, we did it, but somehow we did do it. The sun sunk lower and lower, till it seemed to rest like a great red circle on the top of a range that was far away in the west, and at last we were getting near the creek, for we could hear the water rush and tinkle among the stones in the bottom. Tom had got a few yards ahead, and of a sudden Too stopped. As I earns up he pointed to one side and he whispered. "Look, mate, Bill's there!" He was. Parched as we were, we couldn't pass him. The gush aud the whisper of'the'water was in our ears, but, we coulda't pass Bill—could ho hear it, too? We neither of u* tried to speak, but we crept over to where he lay. He was half sitting, half, lying against a boulder, and he w»s looking the other way, so that we oouldn't see his face, but Tom hii bean right.

They Kill Suckling I^mbs for the Milk In Their Stomachs. The Tshakma, a monkey of the bab- boon family, which is rather common in South Africa, has become a perfect plague of the Transvaal farmers. This ape has acquired the habit of killing young lambs, not in order to eat their meat, but simply to tear open their stomach and drink the milk contained therein,. Having acauired a passionate desire for milk, and being unable to milk the sheep themselves, they patiently wait until they see a lamb sucking from its mother, and take it away as they would a milk pail, which is thrown away after the contents are consumed. The Tshakma then takes to the cactai thickets, which are inaccessible to human beings, t.Dd furnish at the same time a refuge and a source of food in the fleshy leaves and fruit for the monkeys. The same ape has also quickly learned to distinguish them from women. At the approach of a man they quickly flee, while they allow women to come quite near, paying no attention to them. The farmers, however, have adapted themselves to the circumstances, and when lambs are mis- Sing from their flock they don the skirts and bonnets of their wives and, taking up a gun, start in pursuit of the mischievous animals. A Town of Dollmakers. Almost the entire population of Montreuil, France, is engaged in the manufacture of dolls' heads. The "biscuit" from which the heads are made is composed of lime and earth, mixed and trampled until it becomes a species of kaolin, which is steeped several days, the longer the better, washed, filtered, and strained again and again, until it is dazzlingly pure and white. Thesemi-liquldis then poured in moulds, of which there are seventeen sizes, and when dry are turned out of the moulds and delivered to women, who insert the eyes, affix the ears, etc., after which they are baked forty-eight hours in an oven which contains two thousand five hundred heads. The heads, after cooling, are polished with sand-paper, and the flesh tints are laid on, after which skillful artists color the features and put in the eyelashes and eyebrows, and when the heads have baked seven hours longer to fix the colors, they are ready to be attached to the bodies, making the dolly which forms such a delightful part of Christmas to young femininity.

Nowhere in the United States or in Canada are there to be found records of any of the families of United Workmen being compelled to seek a home at the poorhouse.
