UID$IPPED. By ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON [CONTrINUED.] CHAPTER XXVL I GO IN QUEST OF MY INHERITANCE. I= 'il Alan strode to the door and began to knock. Here I made what change I could in my appearance, and blithe was I to look in the glass and find the beggar man a thing of the past and David Balfour come to life again. And yet I was ashamed of the change, too, and above all of the borrowed clothes. When I had done Mr. Rankeillor caught me on the stair, made me his compliments and had me again into the cabinet. "Bit ye down, Mr. David," said he. 'and now that you are looking a little mwre like yourself, let me see if I can find you any news. You will be won dering, no doubt, about your father a~.d your uncle? To be sure it is a singular tale, and the explanation is one that 1 blush to have to offer you.

Down at the foot of the garden The gate is swinging Glow, As if invisible footstepý SWere passing to and frto. And it seems to me, in iny musing.

TO SWIM. In the Valley this Year or go Perfectli Dry, is Something "Pilot" Would Ask the Engineers and those In terested. Daily Truth. How long will it be before the peo pie that dwell in the Mississippi valley will be relieved from the influence that has held them for so many years steadfast in the delusion that anything called science was supreme? When scientific considerations are called for, every effort should be made to establish truth. It is human to make mistakes and human to consider from a selfish motive, and we are not astonished when we find men giving opinions on scientific questions that promote the welfare of their special line of business. Once they are com mitted, it is folly to expect a radical change, or admit they are making mistakes.
