Till-; RT1UFE OF MANKIND. Til " La McIce Sociale," the startling new book of H. Cleiceiiceau, the well-known French statesman, are some remarkable conclusions upon life. " Before the slowly accumulating evidence of iavcstiKKtion nnd statistics," he says "the denials of the interested classes that the present social order is all wrong ate no longer of value. Ths simp'e facts famish incontrovertible evi dence of the cruel sad violent spirit that pre vails all over tho world-iu brief, of man's inhumanity to man. "Is it not, indeed, remarkable," he aabs, " that humanity should have awaited the medi tations of centuries, the investigations of the . greatest minds, to discover the ample fact that man has been at war with man ever since the human race begun. The imagination, in fact, fails io conjure up the vision of the bloody ami universal slaughter that has been going-on ever since the heavy feas of the still smoking globe balbldl with the budding life of the first living beings on eart...

Not a day had passed since Pcarce's discovery of the cavern that he did not ride over to McKenzie's farm to spy around, but he saw very little to en lighten him on the doings of that family. He was particularly anxious to ascertain what had been done with the bodies of McKenzie and Jacob Stan way. It seemed strange that there should be any concealment in such a matter, unless it was to throw suspicion off the McKenzies regarding the attack and murder of Mr. and Mrs. Pearce. If the bodies were reported as having been found at the place where they were shot, it would in all probability lead to the finding of the remains of Roderick McKenzie's body and the ifewly-made grave, and even the supine authorities would have to make an enquiry into the whole affair.
