A nurse named 1'epiln, with a dark ;ind Biniliag fiicr, who wore b!g gold cav- rjugs that swung in the sunshine to attract baby fingers, was a fainter image.

"You must allow the dog to sleep in the hall, child," said the old^nan. "These small dogi awaken and bark at the slightest noise, florio will guard the house." "We nro too poor to tempt thieves." retorted Dolores, Jaupiling, and receiving tho pet in her arms. ' That is true," assented Jacob Dcaltry. "Still I would like to know if one of those loungers of the port were prowling about at night. They arc a rascally lot, and do not stick at trifles."

Several years :igo, Dolores had again nunrrud her grandfather's i v i a t h , in a similar fashion.

Tho sunshine hlantcd in tlie door, putting to Jliplit the shadoiva, and Dolores paused for the first 'imc before the picture. "Who is he?' 1 she demandr-d, wonderingly. "A Knight of Malta, child," replied her grandfather, hurriedly. Tlic portrait bore evidence of a"-c. Thu surface was craelccd, tho painting faded, and yet it was encased in a heavy f r a m e of carved wood. A knightly form wag dimly discernible through the clouding- obscurity of dust anil mildew, lie wore a black cloak, with a cowl attached. A w h i l e cross, w i t h the eight points corresponding with eight beatitudes, was visible on his left side. A second cross decorated his breast, from which depended the cords of black and white silk,^indicating his rank as Knight of the Great Cro^; having- lived for ton years sit Malta, and performed four- c a r a v a n s at c.i in tho galley oE the oidcr.

T h e Press is enabled to publish to-day the first authentic pictures of Russia's three new and greatest war ships. That great armies, great guns and great ships mean peace as much as war is shown by the fact that with the description of these great ships comes news tnat Russia is on more friendly terms with Germany than she has been for many years, observes a writer in the Xcw York press.

Russia has recently inaugurated and soIidiGcd very favorable commercial relations w i t h Uurmany. lhi s commercial enU;ule corcli:i.Ie, particularly when taken in connection with the German alh'Ha- tkjiis of tbo present czar, would indicate a ncrtain possible weakening of Gorman's hostility to Russia or to a Rvisso-French alliance in case of war. Tlic interrelations of L'rance, Ilussia and England in tin- past century have been remarkable, to s-jy the least.

The treaty of Paris, in ISiG. went a step f u r t h e r -- neutralized the Ulack sea, closing it to ships of w a r and opeuing ii to merchant ships. On the fall of the 1'rcnch empire in 1SJO the neutrcli/.atioa of the lilack sea was at an end. The czar declared himself no lonn-pr bound by the provisions of the treaty of Paris.

Russia's lilack sea fleet is very .strong and contains some of the most formidable of the new ships. At tile beginning of It94 she had forty ships there, including ci^'ht fiisi-cljis battleships and fifteen, torpedo vciels. The first ships she built on the lilauk sea (and these were launched iu defiance of the stipulations of the treaty of 1'aris) were the Catherine II., the Tehcsnie and the feinope. This was in 1SS1-S7. They are of 10,130 pounds burden, 10 inch armor and cany four 13 inch fTUns.
