Then conies the "messenger" train

distances between trainer and assis

ground, until, when once tho letter is
inclosed in the little water-proof pock

Tho professional training begins in
tho room in which the dog has had his
preliminary lessons in obedience. His
master holds him in leash, while the
assistant takes tho dog's rag, and lies
down on it in another corner of the
room. Tho master leads the dog a
little way In the opposite direction,
then turns suddenly, and with the
command, "Forward, march ISeek the

BICYCLE VERSUS PEDESTRIAN.
Tho Wheel Covers Much Moro
Ground Than tho Walker.
Tho great distance covered by bicy
clists with ease shows conclusively that
tho human walking apparatus, al
though it may be the best possible
contrivance for all tho uses for which
it waa designod, is not to bo compared
with wheels, for tho ono purpose of
getting over tho ground. A single
coservation of a wheelman going at
moderate speed shows that, with an
effort which in walking would result
in two steps of say two feet each, or
a total advance movement of four
feet, with the wheel the advance
movement would be two bioycle steps,
or downward pressures of tho feet,
each resulting in a forward movement
of seven and one-half feet, or fifteen
feet for one ontire revolution of the
pedal shaft, and this with less exertion
than is required to take two steps. In
fact, it would be ea?ier for tho bicy

diet to make the fifteen feet on a
level with one pressure of ono foot
than to take two steps.
Now, in view of these magnified
6teps ruado by tho bicyclist, it would
ho interesting to know what tho na
turo of a mun must be, to make in
walking the same distance made by
the bicyclist, with tho samo number
of movements of the feet. Clearly
tho stony in this caso must be seven
and one-half feet each, which, at the
lowest estimate, represents three steps
of an ordinary man. It would, perhaps,
bc nearer tho mark to say four steps,
but to bo on tho safe side we call it
three, and have made an illustration
showing tho comparativo sizo ol a
wheelman and a pedestrian built to
keep step with him. The pedestrian
must at least be eighteen foot high.
The man with tho great stature would,
after all, fall far short of making the
speed of the bicycle. There is noth
ing liko rotary motion; the whoel
would bo tho winner m any race.
While tho bicyclo has the advantage
over tho oxtremely tall pedestrian, it
is obvious that the tall wheelman has
no advantage over tho short one.

whereupon the young hopeful of tho ,

oclist fondness for chicken, and had ,
been anxiously watchiug the proceed- j

ones cost considerable money they are
by no means a small item in a
woman's expenses. The dotted veils
arc ai ways becoming and almost al
ways injurious to the eyed, but tho
last is of small consequence compared
to the first. A white mesh veil, with

thick, muddy complexion look well,

Veils of white chillon were fashion?

with it is that it is not so transparent
as it looks and is apt to bo vory daz

How long a veil should be is a sub

for fine veils is undoubtedly the most
comfortable, but although some wo
men have tried to bring back the
fashion this year, it has not met with
universal approval, and the veils aro

" Kahmeescbetookeehewnp, will you
ride a fine horse once ? "
The Cree chief looked at thc handsome
black mare the chief factor was lcadiog to
ward him; then he called one of his braves.
-" Bring my painted buffalo-robe and my
bow and feathered arrows," he said.
He mounted and rode back some way
along thc trail which stretched over un
dulating prairie and on far to the south,
where the btiffalo fattened numberless on
the rich grass. He would " run " the mare
as though he was running b?llalo; bc
would show these white men how Many
Brave Feathers hunted 1
He turned and gave her her head. On
be came like thc hawk, shooting his ar
rows at thc little poplars in the bluffs along
the trail as he rode. A crowd had assem
bled to see the run; part were his own peo
ple, the others the staff of thc Company at
old Fort Ellice.
He was riding very fast. As he neared
thc stockade bc tried to pull thc marc in.
But she declined to be pulled in; she was
just getting nicely going.
"Ay-ay-yahl" yelled the spectators,
giving the war-whoop as he shot past, and
he kept on and circled the fort.
Now a bad thought came into his head;
he would" run away with the mare !
The chief factor's face did not entirely
dissemble the feeling of chargrih with
?JMWIL liP^;}'^^! l?i^ftvnritp hnnat vanish
over a slope in the south under' the sailing
buffalo-skin. Then he went to his quarters.
The features of thc other on-lookcrs wore
a big general smile as he disappeared. The
genial sun smiled broadly too, in the sum
mer sky; in fact,, everything seemed smil
ing-except the chief factor.
"Well If that ain't a good un!" re
marked the clerk to the rest of the staff as
they sauntered back. .
Many Brave Feathers passed thc night
at Moose Mountain. Moose Mountain is
only seventy-five miles from Fort Ellice,
but then it was afternoon when he started.
Next day he arrived at a camp of his own
tribe aud Assinibolns on Broken Shell
Creek lu the buffalo country.
All that fall and wiuter he staid rut on
the plains, running buffalo with thc stolen,
horse, though he never lent her to any one
except his sweetheart, who used to ride
her when they moved camp. In thc spring,
when thc grass was creen, the camp, with
its store of robes and cured neat, journeyed
toward Fort Ellice. Many Brave Feathers
ordered one of his men to catch him three
horses out of the band. He came to the
fort riding the mare and leading the three
other horses, and asked for che chief factor.
Ile had hud tue marc seven moons, but she
had been well cured for and was fat.
"Ah-hu, 'Mistahuse,' you speak true.
The mare is very fast," he said, as he put
the lines of the four horses into thc chief

original Augustus to borrow my pinto
cayuse for six months on the same
terms !" exclaimed thc clerk. He thought
the old man had the best of it after all. -
"Electricity is coming Into such familiar
usc that il will soon timi its way into the
nursery," said an electrician to a reporter
recently. "It has already got as faros the
playroom. Your boy can buy a motor,
with which he can run thc machinery of a
toy factory or any other sort of miniature
mechanism. For u little more money he
eau get a motor and battery combined, but
Hie ingenious youngster prefers to make
his own battery. All he has to do is to
get a jar, two'or three little plates of car
bon and zinc and a small quantity of so
called 'electropoiu' solution. The solution
is composed of bichromate of potash, sul
phuric acid, bisulphate of mercury and
"Thc ingenious youngster aforesaid
pours thc solution into the jar, and in it
he immerses his zinc and carbon plates,
connecting these by a couple of wires with
his little motor. Thc chemical action set
tip in the jar engenders enough electricity
to run the motor. I don't know of any
more instructive toy for a boy, and it has
tiie advantage of cheapness. The youth of
thc end of the centuary is much interested
in the rudiments of electricity, and what is
learned in the nursery is ap; to lead to im
