He created a sensation by immediately an

Under the new indictment, the Solicitor
proceeded to state that the testimony of the
Crown would sustain the charge of high trea

this Poland, of necessity, repeated the history
narrated at the former examination.
Poland said that as yet the case for the

Wisdom from the Khedive.
Cairo, February 9.In an interview today
the Khedive said he believed that General
Gordon was still alive, as the Mahdi was too
wise a man to" kill him. The Mahdi had no
interest in wishing the death of General
Gordon, but, on the contrary, would do all in
his power to prevent such an occurrence.
"Instant action on the part of England,"
be said, "is necessary to prevent the further
progress of the Mahdi's cause, and avert new
disasters. The abandonment nf ft,. rj..
by England, under the present circumstances,
would be a grand mistake. The tribes hitherto
friendly to Great Britain would now join
the Mahdi, and if England does not take im
mediate steps to crush him, his influence may
seriously threaten the stability of the British
Empire in India."

makes the fashioc there? When all
English and French dandies arc wear

down his collar with such authority
that two continents instantly turn
down their collars? It was answered
that the tailors made the changes. The
tailor makes the clothe, but a change
in tho form or style by the tailor would
not change the fash on. If ho should
change tho cut of a coat for a lawyer's

most skill, and a- a tailor he may wish
that a new fashion would produce a

no social authority. He can only servo
him who has. It was Prince llamlet
who was the glass of fashion and tho
mould of form. If D'Ors.iy. amid uni

"They say" thai tho recent rule of
the school board, cutting out fifteen
minutes from the nooning of the school
makes it bad for many of the pupils,
who are obliged to hurry to their homes
if living at long distances, bolt their
food for dinner, and hurry back to es
cape tardiness in the afternoon; and
"they say" also, that "standard tune"
is accountable for the rule. We can
only suy in answer, "I told vou so; I
told you so." Just about fifteen min

daylight by the schools, and by every
