UNDER THE LIBRARY LAMP. £
Maxwell Gray—who wrote “The
Silence of Dean Maitland”—is the author
of the complete novel entitled "Four
Leaved Clover” in the June “New” Lip
pincott Magazine. This is a story of
English country life. The heroine starts
off by declaring that she is ' ‘incapable
of adopting other people’s raves, and
she sticks to this sentiment throughout.
In fact, her loyalty to “a sweet and
noble gentleman” who is the beginning
and ending of all her hopes and thoughts
and affections leaves little time for
other enthusiasms. Not that Marcia
Ludlow belongs to the sickly sentiment
al sort of young woman, She is a splen
did type of frank, athletic English girl,
with the added charm of unexpectedness
in all she says and does; and Maxwell
Gray has made her the centre of a very
alluring love-story. The luck of clover
is sometimes almost lost sight of, but
tradition wins the day.
The name of Cy Warman generally
presages something to do with rail
roads. “Oppressing the Oppressor” con
firms this impression, for it is a story
of a political railroad deal, which may
recall real episodes in the reader’s ex
perience. The author himself says that

JAPAN’S IMPREGNABILITY.
Hold I'rnxH uiul HIuITn of tbc Sra

Mont Modern Unin.
The coast of Ja{>un, notwithstanding 1
its long shore line and numerous har
bors, offers scant allurement to an in
vading army. There is very little
beach; the bold crags and bluffs over
looking every spot where a modern
war vessel can ride at anchor are pro
tected by strong fortifications de
fended by the most modern guns.
Veddo bay, the most feasible bight
for invading purposes, needs careful
navigation, even by steamers of mod
erate draught. When torpedoes are
planted it is simply impregnable, says
a writer in Collier’s Weekly. When the
war with China broke out a small

curves made by this steamer, showing
plainly the countless dangers beset
ting a hostile fleet, regardless of the
care that may be used in feeling its
way. .Vo invading army could possi

doing so, the rice tields, readily sub
merged as they are. would aid materi
ally in thwarting the advance and in

Charitable Practice That Cast (tiieen
Victoria About #1.500 a Vcnr
for Forty Tram,
“I had once,” writes a correspond
ent of the London News, “the curiosity
to write to Windsor castle and ask the
origin of the queen's charitable prac
tice of giving a ‘bounty’ to women who
had given birth to triplets. I had a
very courteous reply from the queen’s
private secretary explaining that the
first gift to a woman who had three
children at a birth was prompted sole
ly by her majesty's sympathetic feel
ing toward her. The ease had hap
pened liiiiime to the knowledge of the
queen, and she sent a sovereign for
each of the newly-arrived little llrit
ins, as an assistance to the mother in
aer embarrassment of family treas
jres. This had happer* and about 40
years ivefore this correspondence, and
quite early l in the reign, and had cost
the queen's private purse about £3OO
a year ever since. Of course, it is not
in all eases of the kind that this
’bounty’ is sent to the mother. It is
only in those who are poor and apply
for it, but as the majority of people
are poor, and somehow these little sur
prises seem geueraJly to overtake peo
ple who cannot afford them, tin
| queen's bounty for triplets had come
to be regarded a Invest as a matter of
course.”

That rapidly developing terrib try
which occupies the northern halt of
Wisconsin is not new enough to cause
Uie hardships and vvissitudes of fron

away the intending 'settler on account
of exhorbitaut land prices. It is in that
stage of partial development which gives
great opportunity to bring it to the high
est point of perfection and prosperity.
Schools, good roads and other improve
ments are going in. All that is needed,

i supplemented by push and energy will
do the rest. The iron ore, marl, kaolin

To the Shipping Public of Manitowoc.
1 have found it advisable, for the inter,
est of all shippers in the city, to expedite
their shipments, to close our warehouse
at 5 o’clock P. M to enable ns to load all
freight that is brought to our warehouse
during the day. 1 Hud from experience
that if freight is received up to the last
minute of# o’clock, that we are unable
to get the freight loaded for that day
and it causes dissatisfaction to the ship
-I*ts. as well as th** receivers and on this
account I beg and urge every shipper to
try his very best to get freight deliver
ed at our warehouse before or up to 5 o’
clock P M each day and I assure you
that you will be is-tter pleased with the
dispatch of your freight that yoi are
sending ont. I hoik* 1 will have your
co operation in this matter.
Yours Very Tiuly,
