The picture represented a lonely itretch of beach, upon which tho sea as beating in long, creamy rollers. In e foreground, bending over a dead oly, was a man with a wild expres- (ii on lils face and with a naked life In bis band. A ship's boat, ovi- BHitlv just beached, was also In the tictnre, and by the side of the inur ' Bored uinu was a bag of gold. The plc- Jliire portrayed the advent of two cast "dp ways upon a friendly shore. The one a..id murdered the other so that the .1i ensure might be his. !The painter's visitor was a gray hair ed, wild eyed man. "In heaven's name, sir," he gasped fit, "how did you learn the dreadful ittorv that you painted? I see you know full. I murdered ray mate Bill to ftet tlie money that was bis. I threw his body into the sea. I don't know what Impulse led me to the Academy. The tirst thing I saw was your picture rep resenting the scene that took place 30 yenrs ago." Needless to say, the picture bad been the outcome of Imagination. Yet mur der will out, and the guilty conscience of the man who bad killed his comrade for lust of gold had convinced him that fie painting was no coincidence, but was Indeed the actual portrayal of a dastardly and unwitnessed crime. There Is probably no picture better known In England than "The Doctor." by Mr. Luke Tildes, yet there are prob ably very few people aware of the fact tlmt that selfsame masterpiece was the means of bringing to light the per petration of a crime that would other wise never have been known. A certain doctor In a large town com mitted suicide, and among his papers was a letter which ran as follows: "I have today seen Luke Fildes' "Doctor. The picture represents a medical man watching by the bedside of a child. It has so haunted me that I am going to lake away my own worthless life and make a confession at the same time. When Arthur's" his brother's "boy ied, I came into money that my dead brother bad settled on him. He died as all the world thought of acute pneu monia. Yet his life might have been saved bad 1 acted, as Fildes' 'Doctor' Is ho evidently doing, with the use of all the skill that lay In my power. I has tened the boy's end and so got the money. I can bear It no more." A well known artist was commlsslon fd to paint the portrait of a lady In ex alted circles, who boasted the posses sion of a most unique Jewel In the form of a pendant The lady was very s;ixious that this heirloom should be included in her portrait The artist, of course, complied with her request Shortly after the painting had been completed a daring burglary was per petrated, with the result that the lady lost her heirloom, and no trace of the thief or thieves was forthcoming. Years passed by, and the lady gave up all hope of ever seeing the precious heirloom again. Now, it so happened that the artist who had painted the portrait of the lady mentioned had occasion to travel in India. In the course of bis wanderings he came to Bombay and. as every visitor to that place does, strolled through the native bazaar. Suddenly his attention was riveted by a piece of jewelry In a jeweler's tiiop that seemed familiar to him. It was a diamond and ruby pendant Where had he seen it before? lie ran sacked his brain, but could not remem ber. He returned to his hotel and hap pened to take from his portfolio a sketch of the portrait he had made years ago of the lady with the pendant. In a moment the enigma was solved. The piece of Jewelry he bad seen was the peculiar pendant that his fair sitter Lad been so anxious he should include in his portrait He hurried off to the chief of police, arid told that worthy what be suspect-t-d, namely, that the bazaar he had vis ited contained the long lost Jewel of tLe English lady. Inquiries were at once set on foot with extraordinary re sults. The Jeweler In the bazaar con fessed to having given years ago a oulte insignificant sum for the Jewel, which he had bought from a stableman in the employ of a neighboring rajah. The stableman was sought for, and turned out to be none other than a fa mous English cracksman, who had ap parently turned honest, but who, sevtrtbeless, confessed to having been the thief of the Jewel that had been o miraculously discovered.

One of the Tilcka Performed by the Fakirs ot India. The fakirs of India perform some re markable tricks. The following one was witnessed by nn Englishman who was himself an excellent prestldlgl tateur: The apartment being ftlled, the ma gicians began their performance. The oudienco sat on the floor about the fakirs, so that they bad no way of con cealing themselves or of hiding any thing. At their request I examined them and satisfied myself that they bad nothing about them. Then one of the women stepped Into the inclosure, the rest remaining behind the speu tntors, who formed a close ring about them. The light was now turned down a little, and in a moment the woman's face began to be Illuminated by a ghostly light that extended quickly over her entire body. She then began to move around and around, uttering a low, murmuring sound tbo while, gradually quickening the pace until she was whirling about like a top. A moment of this, and the light thnt had clung about her seemed to be whirled off by centrifugal force and assumed a pillarlike form beside her. As soon as this was accomplish ed she stopped, turned and began to mold the light with her hand. and. though I could distinctly see her hands move through the light as If it were a cloud. It began to assume human form. We saw the arms, bauds and legs all molded and finally the face and bead gear. She next called for a light, and, the candles being relighted, there stood an utter stranger, a native seemingly, evolved out of cloudland. lie stepped forward and grasped me by the hand. Ilis hands were moist, as If with per spiration, and he was a very healthy spirit. After he bad talked and drunk a glass of arrack he took his place beside the woman again and began to wiuri about. The lights were dimmed, but not so that we could not see, and In a few minutes the figure began to fade, soon asauuilng the appearance of a pillar or form of light and then attach ing Itself to the woman and seemingly i being absorbed by her. All this was ! done in a very short space of time be fore the eyes of at least 50 people and not ten feet from myself. The girl ap peared greatly exhausted arterwaru. CARE OF LACES. Iron lace on the right side first then on the wrong side to throw up the pat tern. When putting lace away, fold as little as possible. A good plan Is to wind it round a card, as they do In the shops. When ironing laces, cover tbem with clean, white tissue paper. This pre vents the shiny look seen on washed lace. Use cornflour Instead of ordinary starch for stiffening laces. This makes them firm and does not detract from the lacy appearance. Laces and other delicate trifles should be placed In a musllu bag before being boiled. This prevents their getting lost and torn in the wash. After "getting up" laces do not leave them to air In a damp place round the lire when the kettle Is boiling, for Instance. This robs them of their fresh ness and makes them look limp. All laces before being Ironed should be carefully pulled out, each point re ceiving attention. You will be repaid for your trouble, as the lace will look twice as nice and last clean a much louger time. Too Snescetlv- An English clergyman had married n vnr.ii'' woman with a reuuted dowry of'about 10,000, while he himself had "great expectations." Needless to say, ' every soul In the village knew about it. It was the first Sunday after their re turn from the honeymoon, and when n,o unnnn wns finished the narsou proceeded, as usual, to give out the hymn, verse for verse, to bis rustic 1 congregation. All went well until the fifth verse was reached, and the parson began, "Forever let my grateful heart" when 'suddenly and with some confusion he 'exclaimed, "Omit the fifth versei" and 1 Immediately began to recite aloud the ! sixth verse instead. Those who had ihymnbooks promptly read the fifth verse: Forever let my grateful he.rt ill. boundless tfrace adore. Which give, ten thousand blessings now And bid. me noe or more.

There is about as much sport in catching the big suntlsli as in lifting out the crapple If you tan get the former In one of its savage moods. Telker is a great grafter on sunfish. He has got a dozen different kinds of halt, but bo says that It Is all nonsense to trouble about digging worms. Ho declares that beef run through a ham burg steak grinder is Just the proper caper for the sunflsh at Creve Ca-ur lake. The tougher the beef the better, as it will cut In long strips like angle worms. "When the sunflsh nre biting right smart. It Is about all that I can do to be kept in the shop," said reikor. "I be lieve me and the sunflsh nre the most cheering things out. Do you know, I have noticed old time fishermen, at ISroose's hike wading around in the shallow water, where the sunfish nre found at spawning time, as carefully as If they were fishing for trout. Now. It is different with me when I go out with my hamburg steak to feed tlie golden bellied beauties on. I Just tie the line to each leg of my boots, take a little sliort rod in my band and stride Into the water and go ahead. On the bootleg lines I use red flies. Why, the sunlish come up and get stuck on my fly hooks three or four at a time. That's the way to catch a mess ot fish in a few hours. "I can catch crapple with crawfish tails to beat the band if I cannot get minnows. Crickets are great sunfish and bass bait, while the katydids will make a crapple leave Its bed at mid night Just let your hook sing once with a green katy on, and If there Is a crapple within a radius of 10 or 15 feet it will come like a bound at a coursing match. If you get no bite, you can pull your freight up a few car lengths nnd try a new place. I caught all those big crap ple last week with craw tails. I could get no minnows for love or mouey. so I chased up some crawfish and went in to win. When it comes to catfish bait. Just try tripe. It is tough and cannot be pulled off the hook easily."

The history of wireless te!egraph would not be complete without some mention of Joseph Henry, America's greatest scientist, for it was ho who first in 1S-I2, discovered the oscillatory charac ter of certain electric discharges and who showed that these oscillations produced disturbances which could by suitable receivers be detected at dis tances of many rods and through in tervening buildings, writes l'rofessor Joseph Ames in The Heview of lie views. He even arranged an apparatus on this principle to respond to tlio lightning discharges of distant storms. The great genius of Henry was never more apparent than In his investiga tion of electrical discharges and their oscillatory nature. It is a lasting tes timony to the Ignorance among Ameri cans of their own great men that the mime of Joseph Henry was not Includ ed in the first 50 selected for the Hall of Tame of the nation. ;hKK:K:5-:-:'::-roc':i::-c-:' RELIGIOUS WORLD. !XOIOIO-IKO-:HO!0-!3-!-0'0-XJ C-rW:-O-l-:-0';:-0-H!-W-0-Ki!'

A true friend is worth more than all the cash one can give or another re ceive. And, however much you may doubt it at first, it is, nevertheless, true that there Is nothing men give so rarely as true friendship. Still, more singu lar, but Just us true, there is nothing people are so reluctant to receive as true friendship. It costs so much that few nre willing to put themselves to the expense and privation It Involves to give or receive. Men will give al most anything else more willingly than this. Have you ever tried to be a real friend to any one? Have you studied their needs until In tlie depths of your soul there was an earnest longing to Impart to them the wealth of truth you held nnd you have studied how you might benefit them, regardless of your own ease? What time, what study, what anxiety and at times rial anguish it lms cost! Would money weigh .against all this? No one could buy 'such Interest; no pike would pay yon, 1 fir liwiiliV W onld not tempt you to suf- j fer so. Hut, on the other hand, noth' Ing so rich ever cnuie Into your life ' as that same experience. I do not ! mean the gratitude returned, nor even the satisfaction ot success in seeiug nu 1 other life lifted. It nil lies deeper than this. The consciousness or lieing friendly, rather the feeling of friend ship Itself, is its own compensation above all other return. How dses this true philanthropy work? The Scriptural lesson is very full of suggestion and will repay clos est study and persistent practice. Although a man be overtaken It a fault, Kcstorc him. Pon't abandon a fellow the first time he slips. You think you stuud firm, and somewhat of contempt for his weakness comes to you. You cannot feel confidence In him; you cannot trust him as before. You do despise as well as coudemu him. You can leave him, for he will be no help to you nnd may cause others to suspect you. His com pany may tempt you to the evil. Drop him'(tilckly, nnd you. will feel proud of your own superior firmness, nnd people "will praise you for your manly Integri ty. If that Is the way you feel, you would probably best drop him, for you surely haven't enough stock for your self and him too. You surely could never restore him. for you are loo shaky yourself and lack spirit and gen uine meekuess. Uive some one else the job. Fact Is. you think you have some muscle when it Is mostly bloct without strength. That one needs a friend who cnu pa tiently show him the right way out of I his error uctil lie sees It, theu one who believes In lils aimuy to gci um nnd sticks to him until he believes In himself and wants to be right, then hives tJod so strongly that lie wants this soul saved and Just Imparts his own power of believing and loving un til the other trusts God also and iu the name of Jesus rises and walks. This costs, but It pays. It Is better than all the missionary money you ever gave or will give. (Jive yourself, for Jesus' sake, and find a better self returned. tVtaolr.ale Bather.. As regards facilities for bathing, which every Filipino deurftnds, there is the open bay, with Its miles of cleau salt water, ready at any time of tho day or year for a free bath.

The sovereign voluntary path tc cheerfulness, if our spontaneous t hei r fulness be lost is to sit up cheerfully to look around cheerfully nnd to act and speak as If cheerfulness were al ready there. If such conduct doesn't make you feel cheerful, nothing els on thai occasion can. So, to feel brave act as If we were brave, use all our will to that end. and n courage lit will very likely replace the tit of fear. Again In order to feel kindly toward a person to whom we have been Inimical, the only way Is more or less deliberately tc smile, to make sympathetic inquiries and to force ourselves to say genia. things. One hearty laugh together will bring enemies Into a closer communlob of he:it than hours spent on both sides in inward wrestllug with the menta. demon of uncharitable feeling. Tc wrestle with a bad feeling only pins our attention on It nnd keeps it fas tened In the mind; whereas, if we act as It from some better feeling, tlie old bad feeling soon folds Its tent like an Arab and silently steals away. l'ro fessor William James. CHRISTIAN ENDEAVOR. Topic For tlie Week Beitlnninrr Jnty 2M-Comment by Kev. S. II. IluJ-le. Topic MisiionBj true philanthropy. Gal. vl, 1-l'J. l'lillanthropy is tho practical love of mankind. It is "universal good will, readiness to do good to all men." 'hilaiithrupy should embrace the en tire man body, mind, soul. It Is usu ally limited to the care of the body nnd of "the mind, but should not be so lim ited, because "the soul Is the man, nnd the man is the soul." A limited philan thropy Is a defective philanthropy. True "philanthropy Is not limited and hence not defective. True philanthropy Is nowhere so well Illustrated as In Christian missions. The Christian mis sionary aims to elevate body, mind and soul, nnd therefore Is the truest of all philanthropists. Missions help the physical man. The care of the human body Is of most vital Importance. It Is the dwelling place of the Holy (Jhost nnd is not to lie de filed or dishonored. The relation that exists between the body and tlie mind is a most Intimate one, and a sound body is a primal necessity to a sound mind. Heathenism largely ignores the body, and is usually grossly ignorant of its wauts and needs. Christianity gives the care of the physical man Its proper plaee. It docs not deify the body, uor does it ignore it, but It does give" It an important place In man's nature as greatly Influencing both mluil and soul. Wherever the missionary goes the Importance of the human body is emphasized, and the proper methods for its development, are nnd preserva tion lire Inaugurated, and the physic ally weak and Intirm are cared for. Missions feelp the Intellectual man. Christianity Is not stoicism. It does not make the cultivation of the mind the chief end of man's existence, but It does believe In the education and de velopment of the Intellect; It does be lieve iu and practice the care of those who are ntllicted with mental Infirmi ties. Wherever the Christian mission ary goes there is renewed Intvrest iu education. In the development of the mind. The church and the school, the Bible nnd the spelling book, go band In band. Christianity Is the handmaiden, not the foe, of education and of intelli gence. Missions help the spiritual man. The supreme aim of Christian missions is to care for the human souL, to have it redeemed by tlie blued ef Christ and kept by the power f the Holy Ghost after it has liccn redeemed. This is the end of all missionary work. It would reveal God to man In Jesus Christ and have Ceil reconciled to man in Christ. No philanthropic work of any other character can beeouiparcd to this. The care of the soul Is of in finitely more importance than the care of body or mind. The missionary therefore in Rny every sense is tlie tru est pliilanthr.il. 1st. This fact should in crease our missionary zeal. Philan thropy is greatly inngnltied today. If we would be the truest of philanthro pists, v.e must be Interested iu and supporters of missions.

The bed of death brings every human being to bis pure individuality to the intense contemplation of that deepest and most solemn of all rela tionsthe relation between the creature and his Creator. Here It Is that fame and renown cannot assist us; that all external things must fail to aid us: that even friends, affection and human love and devutedness cannot succor ua Daniel Webster. Tlie? Light of the World. Christ is the Light of the World. Fob lowers of Christ are described also as lights kindled from the great central Light. In Christ's life the love of God broke like a glorious sunrise Into the darkness of the earth. We all know how .Jesus lived. He was a beuedic tion wherever He went. He blessed the people by His words, which told them of Goil's compassion, love and truth. He blessed them by His life, in which the bitterest enemy could liud no fault-a life full of sweetness, gen tleness, sympathy, purity and whatso ever things are lovely. He blessed them by His deeds. He went about do ing good, healing, comforting, helping, lilting up. cleansing lepers, opening blind eyes, scattering kindnesses every where. Christ has passed Into heaven, but He wants us to continue His life, with all its goodness, its beauty. Its sweet service. He kiudlcs the life la us that we may shine as He did. .1. H. Miller, D.
