CHEEDLE'S PAST. Cheedle has lately acquired a past, j Out of his imagination he has built up a lurid conception of his sinful ' bachelor self which frightens him. The ether day I tried to reassure him, quite unsuccessfully. "My dear Cheedle," I said, "you have nothing whatever to reproach yourseif with." "Ah, if I could only believe that!" he sighed out. "But you know as well as I do whait sort of a life* I used to lead." "Cloistral," said I. "Hellish!" said he. "I was a devil of a fellow. ' "Why, we used to call you the saint," I said. "Of course," said- he. frowning, "it's very friendly of you to talk that kind of rot." "But we did," I protested. "Oh, in irony, you mean." "No; in all sincerity. Of course, we didn't let you know. We thought it might offend you." "No, my dear Wroughtnight," said he, "let me give you a word in season." "Thanks. But—as the servant girls say—l never accept valuable presents from gentlemen." "This young man's craving after an evil reputation is unhealthy in the ex treme. You'll repent of it some day." I was justly irritated. "It seems to me," said I, "that it is you who is doing the craving." "I don't understand you," said he, eternly. "You know you were a perfect Puri tan." "I don't deceive myself, old man." "You kept your misdeeds pretty dark, anyhow. Nobody ever found you out in anything worse than a box at Melo chrino's, or a Sunday at Brighton. Of course, you sometimes left actresses' photographs lying about; but we knew where you bought 'em." "Does any man ever buy actresses' photographs?" "W T ell, you were rather a cub then." I admitted. "This is a very painful discussion," said he. "Oh, don't apologize," I murmured. He sighed. "Old man, I'd like to see you give up that sort of thing." "Which sort of thing?" "You know. The sort! of thing I used to go in for." "You mean cigarettes) and the Nation al Sunday League?' He sighed again. It was a diplomatic evasion. "Marriage." said he, senten tiously, "opens a man's eyes. He sees things in a new light. He realizes how wrong certain things are that he once delighted in. To have a tender, trust ing woman committed to his daily care" "Oh, I say!" I exclaimed. "You don't understand," said he. "You have no responsibilities." "I have friends," said I. "I don't mind you saying that if you think it smart." he replied with an un conscionable air of leng-suffering. "Look here, Cheedle, don't be an ass!" I shouted. "You remember Balaam's ass, Phil?" "No. I think he must have been be fore my time." In spite of himself, he laughed. At once the conve-rration became rational. He was taking me home to dinner Within sight cf the house he said: "I am so glad you get on well with my wife, Phil. If the subject of my— my Past should ever crop up, be a true ; friend, won't you?" I promised. And a few days later I rcdesmed my promise amply. I met Mrs. Cheedle in Picadilly and she pined fcr tea. It is not my fault if Mrs. Cheedle thinks that tea in a Picadilly shop is rather dissipated. "I am going to scold you, Mr. Wrcughtnight." she said, "for your good. I think you are leading a very useless life." "It is useful to m?." I replied meekly. "In fact. I don't quite see how I could get on without it." "You waste so much of your time." "As time is not of value to me, that Is not a great extravagance." "You keep bad hours." "Which are the bad hours, Mrs. Cheedle?" "As if I knew!" she cried. "You smoke a great deal, too." ' "I confess it." "You go to music halls." "Alas!" "You belong to too many clubs." "But I only frequent the others." "You know too many people." ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ j I WAKE UP! | ♦ ' ess > iaz >' condition. Where is * ♦ "^^^^^^^E^^^l' 11 |jj your energy, your ambition,* ♦~ <>:^^^^g^^%-^» v ". your vigor?

"Marriage would not alter me," said I gloomily. "It has altered Josie." "I beg your pardon, Mrs. Cheedle. It. has not altered him in the least." She grew pale. "W T hat do you mean?" she gasped. "I know him so well, you see." She half rose. "You mean to tell me "A saint, Mrs. Cheedle," I cried, earn estly; "an angel in trousers!" "Don't be absurd," she said laughing. "I assure you, Mrs. Cheedle," said I. "that a more innocent man than your husband does not walk this earth." Extraordinary as it may appear, she was greatly annoyed. "Nonsense!" she saiid, sharply. "It is true," said I simply. "I know better!" she retorted. "There is too,much that is evil in Josie, unfor tunately." The last word sounded dreadfully like an afterthought. "There is no mere vice in him than in a kitten," said I. "He was ailways Like that." "Of course, you are his friend. You would be sure to say so.

"My dear Mr. W r roughtnight," she said, with thinly veiled impatience, "do you honestly maintain that Josie is any better, morally, than the average man?" "Incalculably better," paid I. "Then you are mistaken." "Really, I think not. We used to call him The Paint." "The Saint! How absurd!" "It was a saying among us>, 'As in nocent as Cheedle!' " "Nonsense!' she said again, flushing angrily. "I don't believe it." I bowed and was silent. "All men are more or less alike," said she. I did not reply. "Aren't the>% Mr. Wroughtnight?" "Everything is as you say. Mrs. Chee dle," I said, carefully betraying my annoyance. "Oh, was I rude? I beg your pardon. Do be nice, Mr. W r rcughnight." "You asked my opinion of Joseph Saunders Cheedle. I gave it," said I, "honestly." "But you may be mistaken, Mr. Wroughtnight." "Of course," said I. "I admit that. If you don't mind. Mrs. Cheedle, we will change the subject." She looked at me gloomily for some seconds. I don't think I ever spent a duller afternoon. I saw Cheedle a day or two later. His manner was repell ing. "Good God. man!" he cried. "What have you been saying to my wife?" "How should I know," I rejoined, stung to exasperation. "W T ere you drunk?" "Of course I was! Why ask?" "I beg your pardon, old chap. But, really her attitude toward me is un bearable lately. You know that pho tograph of Lottie's?" "The one you thought was Lottie's, you mean. Th? man did you, Cheedle." "Are you going to drag'up that old, stupid argument again? Anyhow, the wife got hold of it is this?" said she. 'My cousin—in Australia.' I replied. 'In tights?' said she. 'A fan cy costume,' I said. 'Joseph Saunders Cheedle,' said she, 'are you a miiksop or a hypocrite? I did not like to plunge on either alternative. 'What do you mean?' I asked. 'Your friends will tell you,' said sihe. So I came to you." "She asked me about your Past the other day." I mumbled. "And I told her you hadn't got one. You haven't, you know. Photographs at one and six each are not a Past." "I can see you overdid it," he growled. And, after all, perhaps I did. —Edwin Pugh, in Black and White. Avoid danger in the changing seasons by taking Hood's Sarsaparilla this spring.

' The following are the reasons for the ! theory thait the Garden of Eden is at or near Seychelles. I could even put it at ! Praslin. a small isle twenty miles north of Mahe. Allow that Genesis is not allegorical; that Eden, its garden, its two trees, did exist on this earth. Eden is a digitriot, the garden is a spot chosen in that district, the trees were actual j trees, imbued for a time with spiritual qualities; these trees, the bush, the ark, the Tabernacle and temple differed nothing from the same things in the world except for the time during which they were spiritually consecrated or set apart for manifestations of God, or Satan. God's consecration made things which were equally clean, clean and unclean; therefore I see no reason for doubting that God did set apart the two trees to be one of Life, the other of Knowledge; or that God, when these two trees should have fulfilled their purpose, should have relegated them back to their former ordinary tree po sition. 1 thought there were two trees —actual trees —which had been sacramental, and had ceased to be so; and in Praslin, near Seychelles, and only there in the whole world, is a magnificent tree, curi ous beyond description, called the Prince of the Vegetable Kingdom. It is unique in its species and on carth — the Laodicean Seychellarum, or Coco di Mir. This, I believe, was the Tree of Knowledge. I then thought if the one tree is to be found, so is the other, and this I think is the Artocarpus in cisa, or bread fruit. It is an humble tree, of no great distinction, yet to an observer it is as unique in its kind and among trees as the other. This last tree is only found in the Indian Ocean. It is a life-sustaining tree, and, like the other, is full of Scriptural types. Having thought that these were the two trees, then the question arose: W here was the Garden of Eden? And first came the information that Sey chelles is of granite, and all the other isiles out here are volcanic, granite be ing the more ancient formation. Then the Rev. D. Bury mentioned casually that the verse Genesis ii., 10, could be read that the four rivers flowed into Eden, not out of it. I have been at the source of the Euphrates, Tigris, etc., and unless the rivers were forced to flow backward no spot could agree to a central basin in those lands, while a flood does not change features of 10,000 feet high. So I took the rivers Eu phrates—as Euphrates., on which is Babylon; Hiddekel —as Tigris, on which is Nineveh (vide Daniel). They meet and flow into the Persian Gulf. Baby lon oppressed Israel —Nineveh oppressed Israel. Required, two other rivers con nected with oppression of Israel. The question of whether ever a river came down the Valley of Jordan into the Red Sea is one which has been much dis cussed. That an immense crevasse ex ists from the source of the Jordan to the Red Sea is the case; the depression of the Dead Sea is the difficulty; the ravines of Kedron and Gihon are very deep. Taking my ground spiritually, and the similarity of the name Gihon with the brook of Jerusalem, I think that they are the same. The or Nile, flowed into the Red Sea; the Gi hon. or Gihon Brook, flowed into the Red Sea, joined, flowed down, met the Euphrates and Tigris, united near Soco tra, and the soundings shown end in a basin 2,809 fathoms deep, which is close to Seychelles. Cush is written in margin for Ethiopia Cush was son of Nimrod; his land was probably near Babylon, now Bab-el-Mandeb. Perim 7 TELLING ITEMS INCLUDING Gloves, Ribbon and Wo= men's Huslin Under= wear.

Pison means overflowing. The Nile overflows. Egypt oppressed Israel. The Nile is believed; now to flow into the Red Sea The Blue Nile encompasses Godjam. a province of Abyssinia, in which there is gold. Havilah, son of Joktan, son of Shem, went with Sheba and Ophir to Mesha (Sale's Koran says) and spread along the Red Sea The Sea of Zugla, opposite Aden, is called Sirius Havilah Sheba. and Ophir is gen erally connected with Aby-ssinia; so I think Pison is Nile. Gihon means "bursting forth"; the brook Gihon is southern side of Jerusalem; it meets Kedron and flows, when it does flow, to the Salt Sea (Dead Sea), by the Valley of Fire; it is Tophet, Hinnom, the Val ley of Slaughter, the sewer of Jerusa lem, the site of all abominable sacri fices; it is connected with Jerusalem in an evil way; it had the same name as Genesis. —Strand Magazine. Superstitions About Cows. One of the oddest comes from the west coast of Ireland. There, when a churning of rich, foamy milk returns orly an insignificant scrap of butter, the dairy maid never lays it to the wea ther or the pasture. She knows instead that her cows have been "overlooked." That is to say. some greedy and con scienceless rival has magically stolen her butter. First, the greedy neighbor waited for a saint's day. Then she went at daylight to the highest point outside the pasture, turned her back on the sun, and just .as' it rose walked backwards three times' in a circle, wav ing her hands toward the grazing cows, and saying "Come all to me! Come all to me!" The priests know all alx>ut the be witchment since it falls to them to rem edy the trouble. Some of them tell astonishing tales regarding it. To un do the charm the priest first blesses a sprig of parsely, which is laid secretly where the butter stealer must step over it. Then, at the next churning in the robbed dairy, the priest comes in re peating a Latin anathema upon cv.'l spirits and all their works. Pretty soon the milk in the churn turns apparently to blood. It is poured into a newly dug pit and carefully buried. Then every thing in and about the dairy is scoured clean, a sprig of fairywort nailed over the dcor, and no milk brought in until after sunrise the next morning. The next churning gives a double yield, and the butter stealer is commonly laid up for a week—whether in chagrin, or from the turning upon herself of her ill prac tice, nobody is quite certain. Southern negroes have a cognate be lief in the bewitchment of the churn to make the milk "cry for silver." The butter will come without it, heavy and golden yellow, but will never, never gather until a silver spoon or coin is dropped in and churned vigorously for five minutes. The wise folk explain that the silver in the acid of the milk sets up a sort of remedial galvanic action. But they cannot explain away the be lief likewise current among black dairy maids that if heifer's first milk be miiked on the ground, not only will the flow fall, but the animal herself will soon peak and dwindle away, a belief that skeptic owners have sometimes proved to their own cost. If, instead, the first milk is caught in a metal or earthern vessen —wood will not do at all —poured on the heifer's back and rubbed in with soothing words she will thrive, become gentle almost instantly, and be a good milker, secure from anybody's spells. The spells themselves' are most pic turesque.

The sickness they taring has but one cure—a roasted nub bin, with a rabbit's tail tied fast to it, which the- cow must be induced to swal low tail foremost. The great preventive is peeled wands of alder or witch hazel scattered about where the cows lie down to sleep. How Elephants Cross a River. It is a great sight to see a line of ele phants crossing a river with steep banks. They go down slowly, striking the ground with their trunks before each step, and never making a slip or miss, although you feel every minute as if they were going to take a header into the water. Then they wade or swim, as the case may be. and they swim l>eautifully. not hesitating to cross half a mile of deep water if need be. I must say, however, that the sensa tion of sitting on the back of a swim ming elephant is the reverse of pleas ant; you fancy yourself on an enormous barrel which may roll round at any moment and take you under. Besides that, they swim so low in the water you are sure of a wetting, which in In dia means an excellent chance of fever. Having crossed the stream, they must climb to the top of the bank, and this is the most peculiar, operation of all. Down on their knees they go, and with trunk and tusks dig out a foothold for themselves, and so, step by step, work their way to the top, their position be ing sometimes like thalt of a fly climb ing up a wall. As they reach the top they give a lurch .sideways, and shoot one leg straight over the bank, then give a lurch to the other side and shoot out the other leg in the same way. which brings them into the position of a boy hanging by his arms from the edge of a roof. Then they come to their knees, and, finally, wiUi a great scram bling and kicking of their hind legs, bring themselves to level ground again. In spite of these perilous ascents and descents I never knew an elephant to miss his foothold, although there was a case where one of the herd got stuck in the # mud and sank gradually deeper and deeper until only his head and part of his back could be seen. The rajah ordered ten other elephants to be brought up, and they were hitched to the unfortunate animal, and by pullling together at the given word brought their bellowing) comrade out of the mud with a plomp like the pop of a-thousand ton cork. —Pearson's Magazine.

A large number of monuments of Egypt's power which have never been thoroughly investigat ed lie scattered about Upper Nubia.
