Copyright, 1891.1 Yarmouth, England, Feb. 12,1891. "Every night," said Mr. Peggotty, "as reg'lar as tho night comes, the candle must be stood in its old pane of glass, that if ever she should see it, it may seem to say, 'Come back, my child, come back!' If ever there's a knock, Ham (partic'lar soft knock), arter dark, at your aunt's door, doen't you go nigh it. Let it be her—not you—that sees my fallen ( child!" Thus, said poor old broken-hearted Mr. Peggotty, to Ham Peggotty and Mrs. Gnmmidge, as he sot forth on his weary search for tho wandering little Em'ly after the pitiful episode of her departure from tho Yarmouth boat-house with Steerforth.

SPOTS OF THE LEOPARDESS. A NOVEL. [Written for the Sunday Un-iov by Gale Bralth.] chapter" vii. I was always a firm believer in instinct —natural impulse. Instinct is a great gift, too slightly appreciated and loosely culti vated. And lam satisfied that half tbe troubles and crosses of life could beavert ed by following our guardian angel ill s'., net, for, believe mo, it controls our minds and actions to a universal extent. For instance, how often do we meet in our pathway through life with one who, for some ununown reason, a shuddering sense of dislike, fear, danger or repulsion overwhelm us? All animals, dogs in particular, possess this marvelous gift. Why not we, superior animals? And, be lieve me, when your first instinct warns you against one, beware! Perhaps, sooner or later, you may change your minu in regard to the object of your aver sion. Ah, and probably be willing to acknowledge as a joke or wrong your first impression. Tako my advice, don't. Your first impression, in n...

SUNDAY LAWS. lev. Mr. Massey Regards Such as Questionable Legislation, Ho Voices the Sentiment of the Unita rians on tho Subject In Ills Sermon Yesterday. Rev. C. P. Massey yesterday took for his text, Mark ii., ii, and said: That the present is a period which is witnessing great changes in many things cannot be disputed, but whether these changes produce results which are wholly bad or wholly good, or whether these results contain within them a proportion of ted and good must be determined from the standpoint of the individual. One tiling is certain, however, and that is that the forces which are influencing the world to-day in its social, its civil, its indus trial, its political and its religious life, are not the same forces which influenced it centuries, or even a few decades ago, and to the mind of prudence it would seem, that to make such adjustments in all theso departments of human activity as would bring the interests of men into proper relation with these newer forces, wo...
