IDINAPPED. B y ROBERT LOUIS STEvENSON, [co u-ED.] CHAPTER X. I HEAR OF THE RED PFO. "Never with the sword," he cried toudly. Before we had done cleaning out the roundhouse a breeze sprung up from a little to the east of north. This blew of. the rain and brought out the sun. And here I must explain, and the reader would do well to look at a map. On the day when the fog fell and we ran down Alan's boat, we had been run ning through the Little Minch. At dawn after the battle we lay becalmed to the east of the Isle of Canna or be tween that and Isle Eriska, in the chain of Long islands. Now to get from there to the Linnhe loch, the straight course was through the narrows of the Sound of Mull But the captain had no cha'. He was afraid to trust his brig so deep among the islands, and the wind serving well, he preferred to go by west of Tiree " <me up under the southern coast of ..e grai Isle of Mull. All day the breeze held in the same point and rather freshened than died down, and tow...

N- Drawing a knife from his rags he squat ted back and grinned at me. The Ross of Mull, which I had got upon, was rugged and trackless, being all bog and brier and big stone. There may be roads for them that know that country well; but for my part I had no better guide than my own nose, and no other landmark than Ben More. I aimed as well as I could for a smoke I had seen, and with all my great weari ness and difficulty of the way came upon the house at the bottom of a little hollow about five or six at night.

W. C. T. U. Edited by the Woman's Christian Tem perance Union. A case in the New Orleans courts last week is rather striking. Mrs Waters accused a negro woman of steal ing about$200 worth of wearing apparel While the charge was proven, she is ac quitted on the grounds that : as Mrs Waters is a married woman, she did not own the dresses, etc., they being the property of Mr. Waters. That settles it ! A prospective young Bene dict need no longer tremble at the prospect of losing the right to say "my hat," "my pants," etc., for here in Louisiana he has the legal right to "my mother-hubbard," "my ponder,' "my bonnet," etc. The wife must hereafter understand that she is diked out in her husband's clothes. Yet we are assured that our laws are just, that the rights of women are carefully looked after. If she possesses a hus band she can possess nothing else-her rights of ownership are cancelled. In the eyes of law makers the husband must indeed be an article of value to out-balance any and ...

THE WORLD'S FAIR. MRS. POTTER PALMER'S HOME. It Wi. Be the Social Center of Chicago During the Fair. Every reader Imows by this time that Mrs. Potter Palmer is the presiding genius of the Women's part of the Chi cago World's fair, a position to which she is entitled by social standing, ability to contribute, executive ability, and what is perhaps of equal importance-a capacity to get along pleasantly with any other woman.

W. c. T. U.1 Edited by the Woman's Christian Tem perance Union. We clip the following from the Un ion Signal, and we wish every woman and man would "think about it." We fear though that many of our South ern women are too conservative to "think," or if they think they would not acknowledge it, because--well, the men don't generally admire a woman who thinks ; an "adorable little goose" is far preferable. She will hang upon words and make him think she believes him a God. This is very pleasant. The woman who thinks knows that men are only men, and as full of faults, and as prone to error as the wo men who were made to match them. Unless she is knave enough to hide this knowledge and act deceitfully-- well-she does not sufficiently pamper to his amour propre. AUNT PHOSIE'S OPPORTUNITY. "Since you are willing to keep your sitting," said Aunt Phosie to the little company of women, "I want to call your attention to some other matters you say you skip over in the papers, because being pol...

KID$A PPED. By ROBERT 1,0IS STEVENSON [comTIm..ED.] CHAPTER XVL THE DEATH OF THE RED FOX. Just inside the shelter of the trees I found Alan Breck standing, with a flshng rod. The next day Mr. Henderland found for me a man who had a boat of his own !nd was to cross the Linnhe loch that afternoon into Appin, fishing. Him he prevailed on to take me, fgy he was one of his flock, and in this way I saved a long day's travel and the price of the twopublic ferries I must otherwise have It was near noon before we set out; a dark day, with clouds, and the sun shin ing upon little patches. The sea was here very deep and still, and had scarce a wave upon it, so that I must put the water to my lips before I could believe it to be truly salt. A little after we had started the sun shone upon a little moving clump of scarlet close in along the waterside to the north. It was much of the same red as soldiers' coats; every now and then, too, there came little sparks and light nings, as though the sun ...

By ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON [cONTIUED.] CHAPTER XVIIL THE HOUSE OF FEAR. ý f. A lasie came out of the house carrying a bundle. Night fell as we were walking and the clouds, which had broken up in the afternoon, settled in and thickened. At last, about half past ten of the clock, we came to the top of a brae and saw lights below us. It seemed a house door stood open and let out a beam of fire and candle light, and all around the house and steading five or six persons were moving hurriedly about, each car rying a lighted brand. "James must have tint his wits," said Alan. "If this was the soldiers instead of you and me he would be in a bonny mess. But 1 dare say he'll have a sen try on the road, and he would ken well enough no soldiers would find the way that we cam-." Hereupon he whistled three times in a particular manner.
