A MATCH-IMAKING PAPER.
The Boston "Globe" Marrying
Off' Its Feminine Attaches.
The Boston Globe may in time
get a reputation as a matrimonial
bureau, for some spice of tomance
seems to conic into the lives of the
women who write for its columns.
"Jean Kincaid"' married Mr. Sam
uel Merrill while both were at
present, on its staff. Mrs. Merrill's
predecessor in the office was Flor
ence Finch, who was married while
a Globe writer to Mr. A. P. Keely,
then a Globe man, more recently
of San Francisco journalism.
Another former feminine member
of the Globe's staff has now gone
and done it, though she has not
followed precedent and married a
Globe man. This latest feminine
benedict is Miss Lelia J. Robinson,
Boston's best known woman lawyer,
who has published the "Law of
Ihusband and Wife," and yet is
not deterred by the inequalities of
the matrimonial condition from ex
perimenting with it practically.
Miss Robinoon before she was a
lawyer, was a newspaper waiter,
and had the place since filled by
Mrs. Kelly and Mrs. Merrill on the
Globe. IIer husband is Mr. Sat
terlee, a business man of Boston,
and they are now enjoying their
wedding trip to Washington, the
chief end an I aim of which is Mrs.
Satterlee's admission to practice
bdfore the Supreme Court. This
is a new combination of l v; and
law, and a thoroughly modern way
of spending the honeymoon. Mrs.
Saterlee will continue in her pro

Col. Carter, of Red Bluff, was in

By the new machinery and methods

some few changes, alterations or
additions to the plant he has no
doubt that forty tons of ore a day
can be successfuly treated. Look
out for one of the most beautiful
gold bricks manufactured from the
f rich mines' of Ied Blutf. It will
be on exhibition in 13ozeman ore

A? EPISODE OF JAPAN.
How a Maiden saved a Future
In an account which he gives ofa
visit to Count Ito, one of the most
famous of modern Japanese states
men, Sir Edwin Arnold relates tile
following incident in the history of
the count. At the time of the
fierce strife which arose between
the partisans of the Shogun and
the loyalists, who were for re-estab
lishing the ancient regime, Count
Ito was paying his addresses to to the
lady who is now his wife, and while
he was a fugitive from his enemies
there came a time when they had
tracked him to her house, and had
chosen a band of soshis to assas
sinate him. The noise of their dogs
and the rattling of their scabbards
were heard, and the count, trapped
like the royal stag in his moutltain
pleasatuie, drew his 1Bizan blade
and prepared to die as a Japanese
lord shouid, amid a circle of his
foes. But while he inurmicred
"Sayonara!" and knitted his fingers
around the shark-skin hilt of his
sword, the brave lady wuhitl"er,,
"I)o not die: there is hope stil,"
upon which she removed the hibth,
or tire-box over which they were
sitting, and lifting the matting antd
the planks beneath, induced her
lover to conceal himself in the
hollow space which exists under
the floor of Japanese houses. The
murderes broke into the ruonm-a
ferocious hand-just as the fire-box
had been replaced and the countess
had assumc'd a position of noncha
lance. They demanded their vic
tim, and when she protested against
their intrusion, andti bade them
search if they watnted Ito, the
wretches dragged her abunt the
apatrtnent by her long, beautiful
black hair--now touched withl
silver-and greviously maltreated
her, but could not shake her reeo
lute fidelity. Thanks to th!is, Count
1lt, the hero of many a nother
strange adventure, escaped fromii
the chief pei'il of his carmer, and
has lived to give his country a new
Constitutiomn and to be one of the
foremast anid tile best reputed
statesmen of modern Jampan.
Twinl Sisters WVhose Suitors Get
Them Badly Mixed.
Almost any day a certain two
young ladies can Ie seen either
shopping or walking. They have
often attracted the attention of
gentlemen on account of their
strong resemblance. The young
ladies are pretty and have a good
many admirers. Two young men
in particular call on them regularly
three times a week and pour their
devotion into the cars of the twins.
Sometimes one calls without the
other, and frequently they would
make awkward mistakes in getting
hold of the wrong girl. In order to
prevent these mistakes, the other
evening one of the 3 oung men gave
his girl a pair of car-rings of a
certain make that could not be
easily duplicated. The other young
man, not to be outdone, presented
his lady with a handsome breastpin.
The next evening they called at
the house feeling perfectly secure,
and one went into the front parlor
to wait for the object of his devotion,
ivhile the other remained in the
hall. In the meantime, the twins
had exchanged the gifts they had
received a short time before.
The young men did not notice
Ithe difference, and consequently
each young man had the other's
young lady. During the evening
one of the young men "popped" the
SIinoienitious question, and was ac
cepted on behalfof her sister. When
her sister heard of this she said she
U would not have the proposer. Here
the story rests. What will happ-en
at the next meeting of the quartette
t will have to be guessed. It will be
safe to say, however, that some
profuse explaining will have to be

finders; the increased lower and
perfection of steam and clectrio
machincry; the implrovemients in
powder and in steel for projectiles
and for armor-have not revolu
tionized naval science so much as
they have broadened it. *The
principles of strategy remain the
samue, and so does the necessity
for the seaman's skill. Engineers
construct, inventors invent, experi
mernts are tried, sham battles'are
fought, and heated discussions
agitate the naval mind; but the
only thing that can determine the
real condition of modern naval
warefare is a modern naval war.
The Destini of Ceiadutd.
Canada is a disjointed tier of.
provinces lying along the northern
edge of a continent inhabited by it
population identical with the bulk
of her own and with which her
own is being rapidly fused by re
ciprocal migration. The American
contineclnt forms her natural market
and she is divided from it only by
a conventional line. Thlie funda
mental institutions of the two mas
ses of population, as well as their
race, language alod religion, are the
same. Will the Canadian provinces
ultimately gravitate toward their
own continent, or will thly always
remainin separate from it and con
nected with a kingdom on the other
side of the Atlantic? That is the
Canadian problem. The Canadians
by their present political relations
are excluded fromn their natural
market. To exclude people from
their natural market is to condemn
theni to comnmercial atrophy, which
i i fact is the lot of Canada. Can
tilhe Canadians be expected to en
dure this forever? Would the
British themselves endureit? Cana
dians are not knights errant in
quest of the Hlolvy rail; they are
hushand ien, mechanics and trades
men in quest of bread; and most of
them working hard and living hard
to earn it. Of late years, there has
been an increase in the volume of
the trade between Canada and the
United States, coimupared' with that
of the trade between Canada and
England, notwithstanding the
American tariff. Putting all the
elements of the problem together.
it appears that to keepthe members
of the -Dominion united in them
selves and severed from their cn
tilient, a desperate war agaiast
nature must be waged.
