LORRAINE was now long past the great climaterir, and breaking fast; indeed, so infirm had he become that he had more than once thought of retiring from the ministry altogether. Though his body was frail, iiowever, his intellect wag as bright as ever, and when Marjories entered the study he was busily engaged in reading one of his favorite books. He looked up with his kindly smile as his foster-daughter appeared. "Is it you, my bairn?" he said, ns ho came over and kissed her. "Welcome home again! Though you have been scarcely a week away, 1 have missed you sorely, and have been vounting the days till, your return." For some months past, I should now explain, Marjovle had been accustomed to stay at a ladles' school in the neighboring town from Monday till Friday of every week, returning each Friday afternoon, and remaining till the following Monday. This arrangement had been found necessary, as it was impossible for the girl to complete her simple education at home, and as the dlstauce was too great for her to go to an-1 fro daily without inconvenience. "And what news have yon got from the town?" continued the minister, as Marjorie, holding his hand in hers, sank into a chair at his side. "How is Mies Carruthers? and how do you get along with your studies?" "Miss Carruthers sends her compliments, and as she is called away to Edinburgh to see her sick sister I am to. bide at home for a week. A whole week, Mr. Lorraine, and in May-time! Oh, I am so glad!" "So am I, my bairn," said the minister, "A -week's rest will do me good, too, I hope, for I have been far from well since you went away. I had one think he has, for he is an exile and cannot return to his native land." "Has he not other scholars?" Ii2 asked quietly, "Only myself out of our school. I go to his house for my losaon every afternoon. And he is very, very kind! He would scarcely take the fees. He said " But here Marjorio paused and blushed, for she suddenly remembered Caussldiere's words and ardent looks of admiration. "Well, what did he say?" "He said he was ashamed to take money for teaching, aud then—then talked about France, and how he longed to return, and how sad H was to be an exile. That was all!" Mr. Lorraine did not question nny further, but seemed plunged In thought. "By the way, Marjorie," he said, after n pause, "you know that your school fees are paid by Miss Hetherington?" Marjorie nodded. "It was her wish that you should be taught French. For my own part, I never thought much of cither the language or the people, but that may bo my prejudice. Miss Hetherington thinks that every young lady should learn French. Curious, the interest she takes in you!" Them was a noise at the front door, a sound of feet in the lobby. Solomon entered abruptly. "She's outside," he said. "Will I bring her in?" "Who is outside, Solomon, my man?" "Wha but Mistress Hetherington, frae the Castle. The carriage is at the door, and she's wrangling wi' the driver." Mr. Lorraine rose feebly from his •chair, while Marjorie nervously put down her cup and saucer and prepared to receive the visitor. "This way, mem!" said Solomon; and immediately there entered the room a woman of middle height, with snow- white hair, leaning upon a staff or hand-crutch. She had black piercing eyes, a com- C138 M01NE8: ALOQNA IOWA with the same low, harsh lars'n a* b0 ' fore. "Weel, it's the nonsense to which a' folk come early or lato, gentle and simple, and trust me to ken better than either you or that Idiot S61o- mon what young lasses are made o. Do you think Marjorie Annan's made of stane or aim, and doesna ken a fair favored lad from a rowan tree or a milk coo?" "I think she is too young for lovemaking," returned the minister. "Then you think wrang; it's never o'er early for a lassie to begin. As for Johnnie, I'll no say but what he's a decent lad and a modest, and he has talent as weel, the rogue, heaps o' talent, though he's only a weaver's son— eh, Marjorie. has he no?" And as she looked at Marjorie there was no anger in her stern black cyea; rather a sort of grim-humored sympathy. Seeing his foster-child's confusion, Mr. Lorraine attempted to give the -conversation another turn.

"We always considered it an excellent likeness," said Mr. Lorraine, gooil- humorcdly. , "So it was," cried Marjorio Impulsively; "everybody said so." "And what everybody said must be true?" demanded tho lady, with a sneer. "Weel, likeness or no likeness, tho lad has talent, as I said; and if he works hard, maybe he'll be able some fine day to paint a picture., So much for Johnnie Sutherland. Now we'll come to the business which brought me cloon. I want Marjorie to come^ to me tomorrow and spend the day." The very proposal which Marjorie dreaded! She opened her lips to give u trembling refusal, to frame some awkward excuse, but before she could the time of the Columbian Exposition. They made at that timo a mammoth cheese, weighing 22,000 pounds.

It is r.trange, my bairn, how much interest the good lady takes in you—she who oares so little for any other living thing; and yet, after all, it is not strange, for my Marjorie is a favorite with high and low." The girl's face grew troubled as sne answered: "I hope, Mr. Lorraine, she won t bo anking me up to the Castle; I .feel so lonely there, and she—shu frightens ran sometimes! She has such strange ways, and the house is an awful place.' "Well well, you must be careful not to offend her, for she is a true friend." , .

"I am very sorry," stammered Marjorie, "but tommorrow—" Sho paused, and glanced in supplication at her foster-father. "The fact is," said Mr. Lorraine, we had made 'other arrangements for tomorrow. Some other day, maybe. Miss Hetherington's eyce flashed, and her crutch was sharply struck upon ihc where. They showed wisdom 111 that, and we all know that everyone heard about that mammoth Canadian choose. Thousands climbed tho ladder that was placed against tho side of the cheese and got a look at its immense top. Thousands did this for the mere afikfl of saying they had seen tho great Canadian cheese. The whole world was impressed with tho fact that Canada makes cheese. Tho men at tho head of tho enterprise did not stop hero. They sold the cheese, and a part of the terms of sale was that tho buyer should take that cheese atid exhibit it In every city of Great Britain and Ireland. We all know that in a few years Canada has become famous, across the water, as a maker ot cheese, and to such an extent that American, cheese has been largely displaced. What is true on a largo scale applies also in a small way. Nations profit by advertisement. Individual dairymen also profit by advertisement. The best advertisement is a show of one's goods. But ono must first loarn how to make good products before advertising them. Tho sample should not be better than the maker is able to furnish right along, for if the body of the goods fall below the sample the effects of the advertising will quickly wear alone in her company, she likes to have me! I wonder why She sits in her hi ing. ington fixedly in the young girl's face. "Weel, Marjorio Annan?" she said in a strong Scotch accent. "How—how do you do, Miss Hothcr- iugton?" "As you see—well enough not to complain. Stand still and lot mo look at ye! There, you may kiss me if: you like!" Marjorie did not like, but she bent forward and touched the lady's frosty cheek. "Did ye come doon in the wagon- ette? Nae need to answer, for I ken, and I ken who came along wi' ye! What's this between you and Johnnie Sutherland?" Had a bomb exploded under her :eei, Marjorie could not have shown more consternation. She stammered, and blushed, and cast an appealing glance at Mr. Lorraine. "How's this, Marjorio?" he said, gently. "You did not tell me that Johnnie had como back." she didna," exclaimed floor. "Tomorrow and no suit me. I hao something to say to her that will na keep. other day will Do you hear that, "Yes" answered Marjorie timidly; "but I have only just come home, .ind 1 would rather—" "Como or stay," she exclaimed, yoursel', Marjorie Annani stay at home the morn^ lang for another invlta- 'I'll swear Please but if you you'll wait tl0 Euger not to give offense, Mr. Lor raine now interposed. "If you wish it, Marjorie shall como "Very well," said Miss Hetheringti n sharply; then, turning to the girl, a'ie added: "Will you walk, or shall 1 send the 'carriage?" • •I—I—will walk," returned Marjorie timidly, with the air of one doomed to condign punishment. "Then I'll expect you at ten, and nae later. Now, gie me your arm to tho carriage." Marjorie obeyed, and with away. * * * An old trick of the trade Is to brand butter and cheeso according to its quality aud not according to its origin. Thus in England cheese has been found by Prof. Robertson of Canada selling at 22 cents per pound as "best English," while other cheeso labeled Canadian was being sold at 14 cents per pound. On investigation the fact was brought to light that much of the cheese sold as "best English" had been made in Canada. The branders had simply picked out the best and labeled it "best English," while tho more common was labeled otherwise. Sometimes English cheeso of poor quality is labeled Canadian or American. Thus it is that tho efforts of the makers are often frustrated, and they arc even made to bear the sins of others. But 'this is an old scheme that has been followed not only in England, but in the United States. It used to be a common trick to brand all good cheeso "New York," and all poor cheese "western" or "Illinois," or "Wisconsin." That was in tho days when New pepper, 18 boughten pepper or made from peppers grown at home; also add what table scraps you have. Tack heads of cabbage, secure by the wall or a post in pleasant weather, so they can pick and eat of it. Have a scratching shed open to the southland keep them at work in these hunting for wheat, millet and sorghum or Kaffir corn that has been scattered in a litter of leaves or straw. Hide it extra well, so they will have to hunt for it. Peed corn at night, all they need to Oil their crops. Whenever possible get scraps from a butcher shop, and If you do not have a bone mill, cut and pound them with an ax. If you are near i\ butcher shop that will furnish you scraps it will be economy to buy a bone mill, as your egg sales will be much larger, your hens healthier and your feed bill smaller. If, however, you live, as wo do, too far from the shops to get your scraps, buy prepared bone meal of nny reliable brand advertised, and feed according to directions Have charcoal, gravel, and grit before them all the time. I manufacture grit with an old clock weight, a hammer and pieces of crockery. Keep tho dust box filled and dry, and a little sulphur mixed in the dust. In cold weather give warm water or milk; use milk if you have it all tho time. Of course they will want water, too. If you keep hens they will want extra attention through their moulting period. Meat ' of some kind is needful just now for them, and seed with oil in it, as sunflower seed. Kaffir corn is excellent for them, cheap, too, for it yields so wonderfully. Make companions of your hens; don't scare them, but keep them gentle. Prepare clean nests and plenty of them. Keep free of lice. Bo on the lookout constantly, for this is the only way to be free of them. When tho children crack nuts have tho hulls taken to tho scratching shed; the bid- die will find several morsels.

The fln-fle-siecte attic is a respectabio place, where boxes are solemnly pllw and where rioth camphor snods its fragrance abroad, says a writer in L1&- .^ plncott's. There are hardly any old ^ books to be found, for most peofeM, nend them to the Hebrew merchants on tie side streets. Our attic was ft long, low room, with mysterious dark corners, into whose depths we did not penetrate, There was an old naif trunk in one corner that held some Of grandmother's muslin dresses. It opened only on rare occasions ami I was allowed luit a glimpse of the fail-, ed beauty within. There was an ol<t spinning wheel where spiders hung fantastic wreaths and there was a gul*- tar with trokon, moldered strings. But the corner where the books were pllocl was tho spot I liked the best. An old- fashioned, tiny-paned window let an occasional sunbeam stray across tbe "Ladles' Repositories" and "Saints' Rest." There was a fine old elm tree thd.t tapprl rgainst the window and sometimes a robin sent a thrill of eong into the dusty corners. Just beneath the window scat 1 used to sit, a small crouched form, bending over a musty volume.

"She is a strange woman," said th« minister, thoughtfully; "but you have no reason to fear her. She takes a great interest in you, and in all that concerns you." "I know that, but—" "Her eccentricities arc only put on, I 1 think, to conceal a heart that is truly kindly You must try to humor ner, my bairn. Not that I would have you shape your conduct toward her by any sordid hope of future gain; no, no that would be unworthy; but it is wol , after all to have so powerful a inoad, should anything happen to me. • "Oh, don't speak like that! ex- palmed Marjorie, her eyes tilling wUU jtears. "I cannot bear it." Solomon here interrupted tho conversation by bringing in the tea. K Marjorie took off her hat aud shawl, I -md sitting at the table, began to pour 1 out the tea, while Mr, Lorraine, forgetting his recent train of thought, questioned her anew about her doings in the town. Thus far they chatted cheer- lully together and shared the -simple Miss Hetherington, with a low, harsh laugh. "See hoo she blushes'. Tho lad and she had a tryste in Dumfries, and came down together." Here Solomon, who stood at the room door looking on, thought it his duty to interfere. "And what then? What if Johnnie Sutherland did convey our Marjorie hame? There's nae hairm In that, I'm thinking."

"It is my business," retorted Solomon, doggedly. "Marjorie, dinna heed her'" "Solomon!" cried Mr. Lorraine, with a certain authority. "Weel?" "Bo good enough to leave the room. The old man uttered a low snort of defiance, but immediately obeyed. Miss Hotheriugton took a chair 'close to the fireplace, and sat in it, leaning heavily on her crutch. "Nae fool like an old fool!" she mui- ered, looking at Mr. Lorraine, but re- erring to the refractory sexton. Between tho twa o' ye, you're spoiling Marjorio Annan altogether." "I hope not," returned the minister mildly, resuming his own scat. "After all too, Solomon is quite right. Johnnie and Marjorio are old friends." ".\11 the parish kens that," said the lady of tho Castle. "Come here, Marjorie and clinna be feared—I'll no eat you'.' Look me la the face! Are you and Johnnie courting?" Marjories face was scaVlot, and she trembled violently. "Oh, Miss Hetherington," she cried, God-day" to the minister, Miss Hetherington left the room. (TO 1BE CONTINUED.) Napoleon's Journey to K'<».That the wraith of his subjects compelled the great Napoleon to play a very undignified part when he traveled from Fontaiuebleau to Elba In 1814 is known to all readers of history, The full details, however, of that wretched journey have only just been revealed by tho publication of Count Paul Schou- valoff's original reports to Count Nes- aolrode. From Lyons onward tho temper of the population grew more and more violent. At Orgon a gibbet had been prepared and tho little escort had muoh difficulty in robbing it of so illustrious a victim, A few milea further Napoleon, becoming alarmed, donned the blue uniform aud white cockade of ono of the outriders, whom he induced to fill his place in the carriage. Thus attired he reached Aix at full gallop. Then .fine innkeeper's wife, ignorant of his identity, cried, "So Napoleon is coming! They had much better kill him at once. As soon as they gat him on the sea they will certainly drown him." After hearing these words the emperor assumed the name of Lord Burghersh, but next morning borrowed the uniform of an Austrian general, and instead of occupying his own carriage drove behind it In a humble caliche as a member of the foreign suite. To show that some people will buy anything that is sufficiently advertised, a Canadian tells the story that the Daily Telegraph of London one day spoke of some butter in a certain window that was covered with salt. The compositor made"tho sentence read that the butter was covered with suet. The next day not less than a dozen people called at that shop and wanted to buy some of the butter that was covered with suet. mother Niitiirn'B Care. Ono of the most wonderful things in this world is tho care that the dear Mother Nature takes of all her children. She makes whatever changes are necessary in the structure, even, to adapt them to their surroundings. A curious thing has happened in the cold- storage warehouse of a Western city, which shows how well Mother Nature takes care of her world, human or animal, if she has the chance. In tho great rooms of these establishments, where the temperature is kept below tho freezing was not supposed that rats would thrive, or even live. But after a while it was discovered that there were rats in tho storage rooms and that, being born and brought up in such a cold place nature had prepared them for their existence by giving them a very heavy coat of fur. Two rats were caught and killed, and were found to be covered with long and thick fur, even their tails having a thick growth of hair. It was then decided to soo it cats would not get on as well as the rats in the cold and act as their destroyers. Tho first pussies that were shut in the cold rooms did not faro IN AN OLD CANE. A tetter to tho Knrl oi Essex frOt>- Cbitrlea I. A dear friend of mine, now many, years dead, an antiquary and a man of, eminence in letters, was shown over, 'the cathedral of Litchfield by the thep dean, says a writer in the Gentleman's Magazine, Aa a souvenir of his visit he was presented by the dean with a cur; ious and handsome cane which some years previously had been dug out In the course of some alterations. For. years my friend used this, until the top came off and the revelation was made that the cane was hollow. Thrusting down a finger, the owner brought out a vellum missive. Thil proved to bo a letter to the earl oi Essex, signed by Charles I., asking him to bring over his array to the royal side and promising in recompense foi; so doing his own gratitude and the, richest reward that monarch could be-i stow upon subject. After the death of, my friend I was permitted to show the treasure, for such in fact it was, at tho British museum. Alas for the hopes that had been formed! Mr. Warner brought me out a practical facsimile and told me that others were in existence. Copies had been made ai\d several had been dispatched by differ-, ent hands in the hope that one mightj reach tho earl. The copy I held hadl obviously failed to reach, though thd ingenious plan of concealment prevent.-- cd its detection until the clays of Queeft Victoria. Enforce * honesty in dairy products and in tho handling and sale of the same. Whenever a law is passed th'at tries to eliminate some of the cheating methods from our intercourse there are always ready people who make a great fuss about their liberties being trampled on. But the fact remains that wherever fraud exists, laws should bo made to bring that fraud out into the light. Tho people as a whole will support such laws if they understand their tenor and aim. » * * Traveling dairies seem to be doing much good in the countries where they have .been,,tried.

She had unusually thick fur, which was probably the reason, and when she be- camo the mother of seven kittens, tho manager of the warehouse had them very carefully nursed and looked after. They grew fat and seemed to feel no discomfort in their cold quarters. Thoir fur was unusually long aud thick. When they were grown they wore divided among the different cold-storage warehouses of the city, and from them has grown a peculiar brood of cats, fitted naturally for the cold places in which they live. These cats are short- tailed, chubby pussies, with very thick hair and under fur. So used are they to their cold homes that if one of them is taken outside, particularly in hot weather, it will die.-Now York Times. Aeration vs. Cooling— In speaking of milk these two terms are often confounded. says the Rural World, while really the benefits derived from cooling milk are quite distinct from those accomplished by its aeration. Thorough aeration drives from the milk all odors derived from strong or acid foods, such as cabbage, turnip or silage. Aeration also removes any stable odors which may nave been absorbed during the milking. Cooling, on the other hand puts ihe milk in.a condition least favorable to the growth of the milk- souring bacteria. Of these, hundreds exist in even the most carefully handled milk- Their multiplication ia most rapid in milk at animal temperature and the lower the temperature the 'slower their growth; hence the value of a thorough cooliiig.
