The Highlanders' Instinct.
It is curious to observe how deeply
rooted some national characteristics
are. Lord Lovat's speech at the ban
quet to the Lovat Scouts, which wp
report elsewhere, disclosed the fact
that the Highlanders' talent for cattle^
lifting, -which had free play during
several centuries of border warfare
before Chatham invented Highland
regiments, is still strong in their de
scendants. "But now," said Lovat,
"instead of going to the Lowlands for
their cattle, they went to South Africa
for them, and he had heard that a
gentleman in South Africa had said
the Highlanders were the best cattle
thieves he had ever met." This seems
to bo the point which has most stirred
the imagination of Lord Lovat in tho
"admirable services," as the king well
called them in his telegram to the
gathering of the Highland regiments.

The Capitulation
o? Celia.
? ? T-x ID I tell you that I bad
? asked auntie to come
y here, Len':''
Q "No, you certainly did
not," replied Leonard Vancourt, bis
forehead lowering into a" frown, as bo
helped himself to a second piece of
toast. "Might I inquire which of the
two is going to afford us tho delirious
delight of her prescucc-Clarissa the
saturnine, or Amelia the magpie imi
"Len!" The delicately traced eye
brows were raised in indignant expos
tulation. "I think that it is particu
larly unkind of you to speak In that
manner of my relations. You used to
say that Aunt Amelia was a shrewd
business woman."
"I would be the last to deny ber that
qualification. Celia," remarked Van
court, grimly. "It was positively a
stroke of genius the way the old rep
tile-ahem-lady palmed oft on to me
that property in Southwark. Fifben
houses, my dear, with only rudiment
ary drainage and a hungry County
Council waiting on me to render the
same effective. Aunt Amelia ought to
have been a company promoter. Egad!
she would have made her fortune at
thc game, my respected nuut-in-law,
has it iu ber bones. Where is the
Daily Express?"
Celia's lip commenced to quiver.
"I think that 3*ou are horrid. Len,"
she vouchsafed at length, glancing re
proachfully at ber husband, who sud
denly became immersed in the money
market column of the paper which he
bad discovered under the table.
"I must say that I think you are
particularly unkind to speak of my
relations In the way you always do!
You should not forget, dear, that Aunt
Clarissa has been more than a mother
to me, and brought mo up since I was
a tiny tot; the first time you ever met
me. Len, was at her house."
"I know," replied Vancourt casually.
"But If it hadn't been for Gus Har
rington taking me to Rutland Gate-1
should never have seen either of you.
I remember the evening well. I took
an instinctive dislike to your respected,
more than a mother of an aunt! A
feeling incidentally which has intensi
fied ever since."
"You used to say that you were very
fond of her-before we were married,
Vancourt coughed dryly.
"I was diplomatic, Celia," he said
quietly, as, laying aside his paper, he
buttered a piece of toast. "You see, as
I could only see you In her house, I
was obliged, in a sort of-a way, to hold
the candle to the-your aunt."
"She was very fond of you, Len."
Celia Vancourt's eyes were bent re
proachfully on bis.
"Ahem! That was very kind of her,
dear. You see, Celia, I had shekels; In
London society I was considered rather
a decent match at the time I married
you." His accent was irritatingly sar
"Do you mean to insinuate that Aunt
Clarissa liked you because you were
well off and had a house iu Park
Lane?" demanded Celia, her face flush
ing an angry pink.
"Aunt Amelia did. anyway," smiled
Vancourt unfeelingly. "My spare
cash made her Southwark property
boom In a manner which brought a
smile to ber face! She had me on
toast, Celia."
She rapped her knife impatiently on
the Immaculate damask. "Leonard,"
she remarked, with dignity, "I would
have you remember that you are
speaking of my relations."
"I have no desire to rob you of their
ownership, dear," remarked Vancourt:
then added, as he commenced his
breakfast in real earnest, "I wish to
goodness that you would mauage to
see that we got bacon for breakfast
that is not salty enough to skin the
Inside of one's mouth. I don't believe
that the tradesmen would dare to sell
such abominable meat to anybody else
but 113."
Cella's face grew tearful-looking, as
she poured herself out a cup of tea;
then, glancing across the table at the
sombrely annoyed features of her hus
band, said, irritably;
"I never met such a growling man
as you are In my life! The moment
anything puts you out you quarrel
with your food. Goodness knows, I
am fanciful enough, but I don't find
this bacon a bit salty."
"Of course not! It ls quite sufficient
for me to say that it is for you to de
clare the contrary," said Vancourt,
angrily. "I never met such a contra
dictory woman as you are in the whole
course of my existence. I am just
about sick of it!"
"And I am tired to death of you and
your grumbling," retorted Celia, flush
ing with anger. "Everything that I
do ls wrong. I can't make out what on
earth made you marry nie!"
"Because I was a victim of the throes
of driveling lunacy, that's why," said
Vancourt savagely. "I wish now that
I bad never set eyes on you. Why,
ever since my marriage I have never
known what it is to have a decent
breakfast. If I don't get a high egg I
get salt bacon which a sailor would
kick at, and if I get neither of those
two things I have a piece of fish which
would disgrace an East End cook-shop
put iu front of me."

"We shall be cruising about the

he continued, eyeing his wife covertly

"You will enjoy yourself, I hope,"
said Colin, placing her slim hand in
his. "Of course, if we ever meet In
society we need not be dead cuts, need
we, Leonard?"
Her doon blue eyes were raised al
most wistfully to his.
"Of course not," ho said, with a
strained laugh, as, pressing her cold
hand to his, he went toward the door.
Addio, little woman; It ls a pity that
we should go our several ways, don't
you think so?"
"Yes, lt ls! Goodby." Her voice
faded away Into a whisper, adding
quaveringly to herself as the door

Tho harsh clang of the hall door

sinking onto a sofa, she buried her
Huffy head amid a bevy of cushions,
and cried as if her heart would break.
"He's gone!" she muttered lu n

in bandages lying in bod In a darkened
and familiar room, while curled up be

Harbor of St. John Has Not Been Frozen
Over in Man's Memory.
The most important feature of the
recent commercial history of St John
is its claim to tlie title of being I he
"winter port, of Canada." Its ambition
to secure this name is not of recent
origin. It has been hoping and plan
ning for it for half a century. Some
forty years ago, or nearly ten years
before the British provinces were
united to form the present dollin lon,
and before eil her of thc great rail
roads, tho Intercolonial or thc Cana
dian Pacific, liad been constructed to
bring the widely separated provinces
into communication with each other,
the prediction was made concerning
the future of thc city: "Looking at its
position with regard to Lower Canada,
St. John must yet become the winter
port of the country. If its people will
work for it, in a few years It will bc
certain to rise to a position where ir
will bc known as tho Liverpool of
The first prediction of this prophet
was a long time In coming true, but
St. John did finally become a winter
port. There is no way of lelling
whether it will ever be "the Liverpool
of America," or, if lt is really going to
put the other Atlantic ports out of
business, just how many more years
they will be permitted to flourish. It
is probably a question that '.bc present
generation will not have to bother itself
For a great many years St. John's
claim to importance was not taken
very seriously by any one but her own
citizens, but they were certain that
its location was such as to eventually
make it a great ocean pori. The con
federation of he provinces took place.
Then the Intercolonial Railroad was
built. After that came the construc
tion of the great transcontinental en
terprise, the Canadian Pacific Railway,
and it selected St. John a' its Atlantic
terminus. Then the prophets said, "I
told you so," and hogan to hustle. The
problem how to get Canadian trade
through Canadian channels had nt last
been solved. There was no longer any
necessity for sending the business in n
round-about way when the ice had the
St. Lawrence River blocked so the
ships could not get up to Quebec and
Montreal for their cargoes.
The harbor of St. John has never
been frozen within tho recollection of
tho oldest inhabitant, say the people
of that city, which ls not true of any
other harbor south of Hatteras. When
the season of navigation closes on the
St. Lawrence tho freight ls hauled on
to St. John before lt is taken off the
cars.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

Wouldn't Work Overtime.
An extraordinary story of an ele

told in Animal Life. A number of loss
had to be moved by bim, and only one
remained when the bell rang for ceas
ing work. Of course the elephant
knew the bell and what it meant, and
was sauntering away, when the fore
man bade him move the last log. He
did not object, but, with all his tug
ging and straining, did not manage to
iift it. Seeing this, the foreman called
up ?a second elephaut to help, but even
the two together did no good-tho log
could not be stirred. It must be left.

straight up to the log, lifted it quite

Pay of Army Officers.
According to Brigadier General A. E.
Bates, paymaster general U. S. A., the
pay of army officers prior to July,
1870, was made up of items of pay,
servants' pay, and clothing and ra
tions. The following was the monthly
aggregate of pay and allowances in

Saved by n Cockatoo.
At Sible Kedingham, Essex, recent
ly, Baker's farm, once occupied by
Johnson, tho artist, was partially de
stroyed by fire. A cockatoo in the
house gave the alarm, and thus prob
ably saved the lives of the family
and servants. The poor bird itself
perished in the fire; it was choked by
the smoke.
"Are you fond of birds?" she asked
innocently, as she stood at the plano
fumbling the music.
"I dearly love thom," he replied with
never a shadow of suspicion.
Then she ran her slender fingers over
the keys and bogan to sing, "Oh Would
I Were a Bird."-Chicago News.

Sends the Following Grand Testimonial
the Merits of Cuticura Remedies in the
Treatment of Humours of the
Blood, Skin and Scalp.
*' I wish to give my testimony to
thc efficiency of the Cuticura Reme
dies in what seems to me two some
what remarkable cases. I had a
number of skin tumourT^-^mair
ones - on my arms which had never
given me serious trouble ; but about
two years ago one came on my
throat. At first it was only about a3
large as a pinhead, but, as it was in
a position where my collar, if not
just right, would irritate it, it soon
became very sensitive and began to
grow rapidly. Last spring it was
as large, if not larger, than a bean.
A little unusual irritation of my
collar started it to swelling, and in
a day or two it was as large as
half an orange. I was very much
alarmed, and was at a loss to de
termine whether it was a carbuncle
or a malignant tumor.
" My friends tried to persuade mo
to consult my physician ; but dread
ing that he would insist on using
the knife, I would not consent to
go. Instead I got a small bottle of
Cuticura Resolvent and a box of C.i
ticura Ointment. I took the former
according to directions, and spread
a thick laver of the Ointment on a
linen cloth and placed it on the
swelling. On renewing it I would
bathe my neck in verv warm water
and Cuticura Soap, in a few days
thc Cuticura Ointment had drawn
thc swelling to a head, when it
broke. Every morning it was opened
with a large sterilized needle,
squeezed and bathed, and fresh
Ointment put on. Pus and blood,
and a yellow, cheesy, tumorous
matter came out. In about three or
four weeks' time this treatment
completely eliminated boil and
tumor The soreness that had ex
tended down into my cheat was all
gone, and my neck now seems to bo
perfectly well.
" About five orsix years ago__my
"s?sTe'r"T???' ?'simirar'Vxpenence. She
bad two large lumps come under
her right arm, the result of a sprain.
They grew rapidly, and our physi
cian wanted to cwt them out. I
would not listen to it, and che tried
the Cuticura Remedies (as I did a
few months ago) with magical effect
In six weeks' time the lumps had
entirely disappcared,and have never
" I have great faith in the Cuticura
Remedies, and I believe they might
bc as efficacious in similar cases
with other people, and thus save
much suffering, and perhaps life. I
have derived 60 much benefit from
tho use of them myself that I am
constantly advising
others to use them. Re
cently I recommended
them to an office boy for
his father, who was dis
abled with salt rheum.
The man's feet were
swollen to an enormous
size, and he bad not
worked for six weeks.
Two bottles of Cuticura
Resolvent and two boxes
of Cuticura Ointment
worked a perfect cure.
You never saw a more
grateful man in your life.
VI am very much in
terested in another caso
whero I have recom
mended Cuticura just
now. My housemaid's
mother has a goitro
which had reached a
very dangerous point.
Thc doctors told her
that nothing could be
done ; that she could live
only two or three weeks,
and that she would die
of strangulation. She
wa3 confined to her bed,
and was unable to p. .k, when her
daughter, at my suggestion, tried
thc effect of the Cutsicura Ointment
and Cuticura Resolvent. Strange to
say, she was very shortly relieved cf
the most distressing symptoms. The
swelling seemed to bc exteriorized,
and she is now able to be around
her house, and can talk as well as
" It seems to mc that I have pretty
good grounds for believing that
Cuticura Remedies will prove suc
cessful in the most distressing forms
of blood and skin humours, and if
you wish to use my testimonial as
herein indicated, I am willing that
you should do 60, with the further
privilege of re vealing my name and
address to such persons as may wish
to substantiate thc above state
ments by personal letter to me."
