ZZZZL [Only a Flirtation r p Night had settled on the quiet village „f ;«! . The sun had sunk behind the surrounding hills, and the town clock on the church had struck the hour of 10. Only here and there a pedestrian was seen on his homeward way, or strolling idlv along enjoying the cool breezes of an Autumn right Somewhat secluded from the more in habited part of the village stood one of those vine-colored cottages that poets rave about, arid the care-worn business man dreams oi. Hie garden which surrounded it was filled wilh tragrant tlowers while Summer lasted; lut now onlv a few Fall roses graced the deserted beds. The moon shown brightly on a couple who were standing ut the gate cf this rustic garden. Tliev were appar ently lovers ; yet the set teeth and de teruniied air of the man, the pale face and shrinking attitude of the maiden, denoted that something more than usual was taking place. 'NY as it a lover s quarrel ? The moon stopped to listen to what they said. The man spake...

A Touching Home Picture. The present King of Denmnrk, it, is said, is regarded move as an indulgent father than a monarch by his people. •His kingdom is, fortunately, not too largo for him to maintain a watchful, kindly guardianship over every village and district, and many are the stories told of his sudden interferance (like the good, powerful genii of the fairy talcs) in some cases of individual suffering. His children have inherited his integ rity and gentleness; and the simple, sin cere qualities which would have made them beloved as peasants have brought to them passionate homage in their high positions. Alexandra and Dagmar, the future Queen of England and Empress of Russia, are probably more beloved by the English and Russians, though for eigners, than any members of the royal families into which they have married. There was something peculiarly simple and touching in the domestic life at the royal palace at Copenhagen during last Summer. The good old King gathered all his c...

VANCOUVER INDEPENDENT. OFFICIAL PAPER 0 F CITY AN D COUNTY Vancouver, Clarke County, Washington Ter ritory. Seven Bad Brothers. For a long time past seven brothers named McLane had committed all kinds of outrages iti the upper country. By the "upper country" is meant all that territory forming part of British Co lumbia situated above Yale, the head of navigation of the Frazer river. The father of these boys, an old Scotchman, came to British Columbia in his youth in the employ of the Hudson Bay Com pany. He was a singularly brave man, and soon after his arrival lie was trans ferred from Victoria to Kamloops, a place some 900 miles from Yale, where he took charge of a "post" and traded with the Indians. Like all servants of the Hudson Bay Company, he lived in concubinage with the Indians, and in time had a large family about him. The seven boys already spoken of are by two wives—one a full-blooded Indian and the other a half-breed, Some of the boys are therefore* half-breeds, the oth...

Fereonal Peculiarities. About forty years ago I had a lad in my employ who had the habit when un expectedly spoken to of pricking up his ears in so decisive a manner as to re mind one of the ears of Presc or of Tray when suddenly called. Marie Louise, the second wife of the great Napoleon, was in the habit of amusing the ladies of her court at their private soirees by turning lier ears almost completely round, and in a manner closing them up. She did this by a peculiar motion of the j iw, and sh» is Slid to have prided herself on the exploit not a little. A mnn I knew well wore an enor mous shock of raven hair, and would al low himself to be lifted by the hair from the ground by any one who was strong enough to do it, and to be swung to and fro like a pendulum, or to be dragged along the iloor. The faculty of sleeping at will was one of the endowments of the lirst Napoleon, who it is said could sleep any length of time, long or short, and awake at the time, almost toa minute, he had...

One by one (bright gifts from Heaven) ■Toys are sent thee here below, Take thtm readily when given. Heady too to let them go. One Vy one tliy griefs shall meet thee; Do not fear for an armed band, Ore will fade while others greet thee; Shadows passing through the land.

Every hour that fleets so slowly lias its task to do or bear; Luminous the crown and holy If thou set each gem with care. Do not linger with regretting.

The Eyeping Press. There are many reasons why au after noon newspaper should be more widely circulated and read in the city of its publication than a morning journal. It takes up the thread of the news where it is left by the morning press, and with the exception of burglaries, murders and occasional depredations on clothes lines, the bulk of the woilds transac tions take place between fix o'clock in the morning ami four in the afternoon. The fluctuations in stocks and markets generally are all recorded in the evening paper, and it is therefore absolutely in dispensable to the business man. The evening paper reaches the street and the homo after the labors of the day. Unlike the morning journal, it is not glanced over and thrown aside. The morning paper is essentially a break fast table affair. The man of the world grasps it in his hurry between late ris ing and his coffee, and hastily attempts to swallow its contents. He has no time for details. As soon as he has gulped down the he...
