corrupt kc.i1 dishorn' t dwells. In his
own eyt-s the prni'tid.l litiiian of the
higher j:rn:le is a patriots citizen working
for tlie jfood of n party up in the success of
which depends the welfare of the country.
He feels in many cases that lie is driven to
acts which to him are unpleasant; which
are perhaps on the whole unfortunate for
the country, hut which, u niler the circum
stances, are still a stern necessity. To be
sure, anions the "workers' will Ite fonr.d
mnny wlio care neither for country nor
party, nor even for leader. t!io;isrh that is

Most of o:ir o.'Tieeliohiers ia the higher
legislative and executive positions are at
bottom as honest, hanlwjrking and self
sacrificing us m n of other classes. The
'"submersed tenth" have d -nired the repu
tations of their fellow politicians lower
than truth would permit u.i todeclare their
characters to be. These differences of
opinion with reference to the character of
the practical politician cone largely from
lack of knowledge on the p:irt of the public
as to the circumstances in which the poli
tician is placed and as to the pressure that
is brought to bear upon him as well as
from ignorance of the amount of excellent
self sacrificing work that he really docs.
When the people really see things as
they are, know what ought to be done, and
demand that action be taken, the politician
will be ready and prompt, to act. The
politician cannot act until he feels that
public opinion is with hi n; his business
in fact, and in justice, too, in the main, is
not to guide public opinion, but to follow
it. He may help to create tnd guide pub
lic opinion, hut that duty is eo tally in
cumbent upon lawyers, pre; cher. teachers
and all good nnd intelligent citi tis. We
need to distinguish iu this regar: the re
former, and even the statesman, from the

On tlie shores of the Mor.iy firth the
spot need not be more speci ically local
izedthere is a flourishing lit .le village of
some i.iihi lniiHtutants, consisting chieflr
of fisher folk. The young man and maiden
do not court in the orthotox fashion.
Their method is much more prosaic, and
what is characteristic of one case may gen
erally lie accepted as characterist ic of them
all. There is of course an occasional in
stance of genuine old fashioned courtship,
but that is rather a rare exception.
"Mother," said one young man on his
return from a successful herring fishing.
"I'm goan to get merrid." " V'eel, .Teems,
a' think ye sh'd just gang an ask y r
cousin Marack." And as he had no partic
ular preference, be went straight awav to
"Wull ye tak me, Marack'" was the
brusque and businesslike que-y which he
put to the young woman in t ie presence
of her sister ISella.
But Mary had promised her hand to an
other thut same evening. "I canna tak
ye, Jecms," was her reply, and then, turn
ing to her sister, "Tak ye 'it t, Hellak."
And the sister took him. Chambers' Jour

It is observed that Mr. Kuskin's printed

be made so modeled on the jroportions
which artists have assigned to the finest

that the author's reason for j lacing his

is his desire to give st udents of his works
