BALDWIN, Mr, Peary, the Arctic explorer, speaking of Ihe generous gift of the Windward made to him by Mr, Harmsworth, the London publisher, expresses great gratification over this striking exhibition of English good feeling. He considers it another link in the long chain of Internationa' courtesies exchanged in Arctic explor ation. Jt is thought that tho influence of the French language, with ita unas- pirated h, is the primary cause of that letter being so much ignored by Eng¬ lish people. French having been spoken so long in Eugland and the people near tho coast having oomfi in contact continually witb that lan¬ gnage, an indelible impression, it is said, is left upou it, increased now by usage. Oermany's Asiatic policy was not unlocked for, Tho Kaiser has long been of the opinion that Europe must prepare for troublo with the yellow races. That was the themo of the picture he painted two years ago. wherein Oerinania was shown stand ing with .Irawn sword, among her European sisters, waiting the onset of tho Oripntttla. His recent course in Eastern waters merely shows that he means tu take time by the forelock and meet his enemies on their own gronnd, attacking tbem, if the way opens, before their military strength beoomes too great.

To reinforce this view of the case au observation was made on Third street in that oity during the month of October, 1897.

I -gfe:^^ *V^ aea Me lal rtawatti Says the Philadelphia Record ¦Tustico Patterson of New York, in a speech before tho Law Club of that city recently, deplored the fact that the law had become a.i largely a trade instead of a profession; and on the following day Dr, Edward Everett Hale, in an address before an educa¬ tional body iu the same city on "Mor¬ ality in tho Publio Scboois," made tbe declaration: "There is danger of tbe managers of a great machine taking more pride in the machine an.i its workings than in the results it turns out. Thill is tho danger in our public schools." These words will, of course, be resented as the views of pessimists; yet they come from men <|ualifled to speak as public teachers, and com¬ ing simultaneously tbey gain au em phasis which must command atten tlon. We are accustomed to flatter iiurselvos with the idea that our devel opment along material lines necea- aarily involves a corresponding de¬ velopment along intellectual and tn.irni liues. However that may be, the fact can no longer be denied that the commercial instinct is beginning to dominate almost every action of our people.

"She couldn't do it alone." "I don't know what they were," re¬ plied Madeleine, "1 signed overy paper they had on the table, the night they said ahe would die before morn¬ ing." "When was that? " he asked, "More than a month ago, " she said; "and they ]mt them all into the safe in tbe library," "1 know where it is, " said .Teff, "It's your own safe now. It opens with a combination lock, Y'on know tho numbers, of course, aud how to open it? " "No, I dou't," she replied despair¬ ingly, "I never knew how to open it, I don't kuow tho numbers, an.l 1 cnu't lell you. They've kept thcin a secret.

At that monent he was lighting a mattih au.l removing tbe blower from the library-grate. "Oh, Jeff, you dare not!" exclaimed Madeleine, "you must uot! Wbat arc you going to do?" ¦'Nothing at all, he said, calmly, "But flre is good for fraii.l, Hnw well it all burns! Thoregnthe .lee.ls, and the mortgages, an.l the bonds, and oil the notes.

It is right whore he can get it. Don't you think it ought to be iu a safer place?" "It mnst be mine!" she exclaimed, "It can't be his! Ho hasn't auything. He meant to steal it, surely!" "Meant to?

"Put it iuto the bank for me, Jeff, " said Madeleine, "I dare not, and I cannot bear to leave the house," "I'll put the will right back where I found it," be said, as he did so. "They all saw it deposited here?" "Yea," replied Madeloine, "Uncle Wickhnm and the witnesses camodown and saw it put away there,"' "That's whero "they will find it, tben, when tliey come to look for it," said .Teff, an.l he seemed to be worry¬ ing in a very curious way around the lock of the safe. "There! Tbal'll do, 1 guess. Now, Madeleine, I must go." Not many, uot very many, seconds later Jeff walked unconcernedly ont of the honse, as if nothing extraordin¬ ary had happened. Madeleine, ou thc other hand, after closing the door be¬ hind him, went slowlj and thought¬ fully upstairs, A door at her right opened at that moment, and a tall, grim-lonkiug woman stood in it. "How ia mother?" nsked Madeleine, "Is Mr, Lopbam there? ' "He is asleep just now," said the nurse. "She has not stirred or spoken," Madeleine walked past her into tho room, and hent above an emaciated form lyiug upou th© bed. The face was placid, bnt thero could be no misunderstanding of the nios sage it conveyed. "Oh, if I could but speak tn her!" thought Madeleine, while her whole frame shook and her own face grew as wbite as was that upon wbicb she was gazing, au.l then a faint whisper brnke through her lips * "Mother'' A pair nf blue eyes ojieued Iiingunl- ly, and the nurse now at the win.Inw, lli.l not hear aa acutely as did Made¬ leine: "My daughter!
