Dewey's Report Finally Received.
Washington, May 7.���The navy department has just received the long expected cablegram from Commodore
Dewey at Manilla. It is dated Hong
Kong, this morning.
None Killed and but Six Wounded.
Now York, May 7.���A dispatch just
received from Hong Kong states that
the dispatch boat McCulloch has just
arrived here with a full roport of the
Ainorican triumph at Manilla. Tho
entire Spanish fleet of 11 vessels was
destroyed. Throe hundred Spanish
wore killed, and about 400 wounded.

not in serious need of anything at present.
The Nem In Washington.
Special Dispatch to tho Kaslo Morning News.
Washington, May 6.���The offloials of
the navy department, as well as all tho
army officers who wero on duty at the
war department were astonished at tlwe
extent of mortality inflicted on the
Spanish by Admiral Dewey���for from
tfaa moment when Secretary Long Bent
his dispatch of congratulations, the
commodore became an admiral. Officers scratched thoir heads in vain to
think of any genuino hostile engagement between armed forces that had
boon so one-sided in its results as that
of thc battle of Manilla and subsequent
engagements. Never beforo, save
where some terrible accident, such as
the blowing up of a ship, had occurred, was there any record of such a
result. Opinions wero expressed by
strategists that with splendid judgment Dewey absolutely smothered the
fire of the Spanish batteries and ships
under tho weight of his metal before
they had an opportunity to make any
effoctivo response.
As for the forts it  is  likely that  he
took up his position at a distance that
placed his ships beyond range of old
fashioned ordnance that formed nine-
tenths or more of the defensivo power
of the works, and shelled them into
silence, succeeding in escaping, in the
meantime, from the few pieces of modern ordnanco that could be trained
upon him. Of course this opinion is
speculative but it represents the views
of some of the ablest strategists in the
navy department.
Admiral Dewey speaks of the Spanish sick oand wounded in hospitals
"within our linos." There cau be but
one interpretation placed upon this,
namely, that ho has occupied Cavite,
a considerable town about seven miles
towards the mouth of the bay from
Manilla. Ho has thus, supposing he
goes no farther, secured a naval baso
for the American Hoot which will
serve through the war at least.
An Important feature of Dewey's
cablegram Is tho statement that he destroyed tho fortifications at the bay'a
entrance. This refers to the strong
forts at Corregidor island, lying at tho
entrance to tho bay, and insures tho
admiral against any interruption in
the line of communications with tho
outside world.
As soon at the news in the cablegrams had beon absorbed by the ofilel-
als they turned their attention to the
future. It was already In contemplation to send some troops to relieve tho
squadron, of necessity occupying Manilla and forts, if Admiral Dewey should
call for them. Although he made no
such request ln hia cablegrams today
the officials gathered from tho text that
ho was not in complete possession and
thoy immediately ascribed this to the
lack of men to occupy it.
Therefore Secretary Long Btated
that without waiting further, the government would send troops to reinforce
Admiral Dewey with all promptness.
Secretary Alger and General Miles
wero communicated with on the subject
and they immediately planned all necessary arrangements for tho sending
of an expedition from San Francisco.
These plans will be put into immediate
execution. The City of Pekin is expected in San Francisco today and the
.Mare Island uavy yard people have promised to have her In condition to receive troops and supplies by next
Thursday. Meanwhile the naval pay
officers and Pay Director Grilling, will
make every effort to get together somo
more swift merchant steamers, to do
service as transports. It is not doubted that sufficient of these can be readily
secured from the swift and powerfu
steamers of the groat ocean lines starting from San Francisco.
Gen. Miles thought that 6,000 troops
would suffice to reinforco Dowey.

Gijon, Province of Ovrdo, May 7.���
The killing of-women by troops during
the rioting of fisher women and tobacco girls has caused a tremendous demonstration. The civil guards joined
the rioters, many guards having sweet
hearts among t'le disaffected women.
Octroi duties wore merely an excuse
for tho outburst. The price of bread
and the interference with tobacco
work was enough to start the women,
but tho men were Incited from below
by agitators working for the downfall
of the government, and the Gijon massacre instead of putting down the riot
increased it in violence.
Cries against the throne arc open.
Mutterings of rovenge against the soldiery are on all lips. One party of
rioters attacked Casa Blanca and almost demolished it. The infantry fears
to venture from the barracks. The artillery made an attempt to capture tho
gun that* was carried off by deserters
the day before, but tho effort was half
hearted and thoy retired under a shower of hot water, .stones, dead animals
and addled eggs. The gun had been
taken into the back country. Desperate men and cut-throat bandits ripe for
spoils are collecting about it.
Weylor's secret emissaries are whispering to tho poor, "We will make
bread cheaper, lower taxes and humble
tho hated Americans." At Barcelona
the ''Yankees of Spain" arc expressing
disapproval of the govornment, by runs
on the bank and demanding silver for
notes. In the harbor there have been
heard niutterings of mutiny in tho
navy, and a plot to capture torpedo
boat destroyers.

Special Dispatch to the Kaslo Morning News.
Key West, May 7.���(On board the
Associated Press boat Kate Spencer)
The big French liner, La Fayotte San-
tana Zari, with a full complement of
passengers and a general cargo, bound
from Corunna, Spain,1 leaving port
April 23r'., was captured off Havana
shortly before sundown yesterday by
tho Annapolis. The La Fayette was
heading directly for Havana and ivas
taken only after an exciting chase.
After an examination of tho Frenchman's papers was mado -a prize crew
from the Annapolis was placed aboard
and she was Bent to Key West under
escort of the Wilmington. She is
thought to have loft a Spanish port
after the declaration of war. .she had
a large number of malo passenger*
aboard whieh leads to a suspicion that
she carried recruits for Havana. It is
(eared by some that a serious international aspect confronts the capture of
the La Fayette, as she mounts guns
and is a French naval reserve vessel.

�� from Manila say that the American
squadron under Commodore Ifcwpy appeared off the Bay of Manila at 5 o'clock
this morning and opened a Btrong cannonade against the Spanish squadron and
forts protecting the harbor. The Spanish second class cruiser Don JuAi de

Another Spanish vessel wns burned.
The American squadron retired, having
also sustained severe damages.
A second naval engagement followed in
which the American squadron again suffered considerable loss and the Spanish
warships Mindano and Ulloa were slightly damaged.
During this engagement the Cavite forts
maintained a steadier and stronger fire
upon the American squadron than in the
first engagement.
Admiral Bermejo, the minister of marine, lias expressed himself na highly
pleased with tlie heroism of the Spanish
marines and has telegraphed the congratulations to Admiral Montejo and the valorous crews of tlie Spanish squadron under fire of superior warships.
Straight From Manilas
8 p. m ��� Following is thc text of the
official dispatch from the governor general of tlie Philippines to the minister of
war, General Correa, as to the engagement off Manila:
"Last night, April 30, the batteries at
the entrance to the forts announced the
arrival of the enemy, forcing a passage
under the obscurity of the night. At
daybreak the enemy took up positions
opening witli a strong fire against Fort
Cavite and Tardcnnl. Our fleet engaged
the enemy in a brilliant combat, protected by the Cavite and Manila forts. They
obliged the enemy, with heavy loss, to
maneuver repeatedly.
"At 0 o'clock the Americans took refuge
1 mh ind the foreign merchant shipping on
the east side of the bay. Our fleet, considering the enemy's superiority, naturally suffei-ed a severe loss. The Maria
('hristinna is on fire and another ship
believed to be the Don Juan de Austria
wns blown up. Tliere was considerable
loss of life. Captain Cardaroza, oom-
manding the Marie Christiana, is among
the killed.

Montejo  Admits  His   Defeat.
Mndrid. via Paris, May 1.���The time of
the retreat of the American squadron behind the merchantmen was 11:30 a. m.
Thc naval bureau at Manila sends the following report signed Montejo, admiral.
"In the middle of the night the American squadron forced the forts and before
daybreak appeared off Cavite. The   night
was completely dark.    At    7:30 o'clock
the bow of the  Reina Marie Christina I
took fire and a on after the poop also was i
burned.   At 8 o'clock, with my staff,   I i
went on board  thc  Isle of Cuba.    Thc!
Reina Maria Christina and the Custilla !
were then entirely enveloped in flumes.
"The other ships having been damaged ;
retired into linker bay. Some had to be i
sunk to prevent their fulling into the
band! of the enemy. Tlie losses are mini- \
erous, notably Captain Cardarzo, a priest!
and nine other persons."
Claim   "a  Victory."
London, May 1.���'Ilie Madrid oorrespon- i
dent of the Financial news telegraphing j
this morning says:
The Spanish ministry of marine claims
a victory for Spain because  the Americans were forced to retire behind the mer-1
ehuntnieii.    Captain  Curdnr/.o,  in    coni-
mund   of   the   Keina     Marin     Christina .
went down with the ship.   The Spaniards
fought splendidly. There is great anxiety ;
for further details.
C'rnshlnK   liefest   of   Spain.
London. Muy 1.���Dispatches received
from Madrid state that serious lighting
has occurred off Cavita, Philippine islands. While it is quite clear that the
Spanish squadron has suffered a crushing
defeat, tlie dispatches leave unclear the
intensely interesting question whether the
American squadron has suffered material
damage. All news thus far comes from
Spanish sources, but. it seems evident that
Commodore Dewey has not captured Manila. Unless he is able to make another
attack and capture the town, he will be
in an awkward position, having no base
upon which to retire and to refit.
Probably, therefore, the United States
squadron will be obliged to make for San
Francisco, as the entrance to Manila bay
was heavily mined with torpedoes.
Dewey's Oreat Pluck.
Acting Admiral, Dewey displayed great
pluck and daring In making for the inner
harbor. According to private advices received from Madrid, the United States
cruisers Olympia, Raleigh   and   two ather,
vessels, tho names of which are not given
entered the harbor.
No dispatches givo details as to the vessels actually engaged on either side.
It appears to be incorrect that the
American ships finally anchored behind
the merchantmen on tho cast side of the
bay.   It should be the west side.
Probabilities point to the second engagement occurring through the Spaniards trying to prevent tho landing of the
American wounded.
Beliable details can not be had until
Commodore Dewey's squadron is able to
communicate with Hong Kong. Tliere
is, however, a suspicious frankness in
the Spanish dispatches that savors of the
intention to break unwelcome news to
thc Spaniards. It is not likely, however,
that Commodore Dewey will renew the
Only  News  Is  From   Mndrid.
London, May 1���Midnight���Tlie second
section of the Madrid dispatch reporting
the engagement off Manila bay has just
been received here. It shows that there
was "serious fighting off Cavite." Admiral Bermejo, according to tlie dispatch,
hns wired congratulations to the.Spanish
navy on the behavior of the warships
against superior forces.
No confirmation has been received here
of thc dispatch from Madrid us to tlie
fighting at the Philippines trom any
source. Neither tho Reuter Telegram
Company nor the Times, nor tlie Daily
Mail, hitherto Uie only source of direct
information from Manila, have received
a word on the subject.

London, May 2.���Dispatches from Madrid dated 2:20 a. m. say the city is now
tranquil although tlie mounted guards are
patrolling all the main streets. At thc
theaters, cafes and in front of newspn|>er
offices lust evening the people loudly lamented the unprepnredness of Manila to

to suppress all street demonstrations.

Schley and those commanded by Rear

formidable force at the central position
where they can promptly resist nny attack mnde by tlie Spanish fleet either on

Will Destroy New Batteries.
New York, April 30.���Another bombard-
bnrdment tlf Mutanzns will probubly follow if General Blanco makes any attempt
to replace the batteries demolished by
Admiral Sampson, snys the Washington
correspondent of the Herald.
Official dispatches from Admiral Sampson received at the navy department tell
briefly of the bombardment. The only
explanation he makes for tho attack on
the Matanzas fortifications is that he discovered the Spaniards were erecting heavy
guns there and he deemed it expedient to
demolish them. He adds that tho Puritan will be sent back to Matanzas with
orders to destroy uny new batteries that
niny be constructed.

Gold of California. ��
San Francisco, May 1.���Charles G. Yale
statistician of the San Francisco mint and
the California mining bureau, reports that
the gold output in California during 1897
was $15,181,401. This is $1,310,161 less
than tho produot of 1896.
Stockings were flrst used in the 11th
century. Before that cloth bondages were
used on the feet.
The Cariboo hydraulic mine, one of the
largest on the ooast has eommenced operations for the season of 1898. They
turned on the water April 1 for the first
time this season, and are now running
night and day with a good head of water.
From the report of Manager J. B, Hobson
for 1897, the following summary of the
season's work is taken: Total time occupied in washing, 111 days, 17 hours;
quantity of water used, 223,416 miner's
inches: quantity of gravel washed, 840,-
130 cubic yards; gold pnxluct for season
8078 ounces; value of gold, $138,559.79;
total expense of operating, $91.311.77; receipts for season's profits ou stores, bonrd-
ing house, lumber, etc., $4022.01. The
water supply is from a. ditch 17 miles
long, with a. capacity of about 3000 miner's inches. The ditch connects with Pol-
ley's and Bootjack lakes. Tlie former
holds 304,000,000 cubic feet, equal to 140.-
741 miner's inches, nnd the lutter 102,-
000,000 cubic feet, equul to 75.000 miner's inches. As those lakes do not give
sufficient water for a season's work, they
are now bringing in another ditch from
Moorehead, at a cost of over $100,000. Tlie
reservoir site on Moorehead lake is extremely favorable for storing largo quantities of water. An earthen dam 485 feet
long, or 50 feet extreme height, and containing 50,000 cubic yards of embankment, will retain a reservoir of water 35
feet in depth, covering an area of 620
acres, and will hold 550,000,000 cubic feet
of water, equal to 254,629 miner's inches
or 127 days' water of 2000 miner's inches
daily. The drainage area is sufficient to
till the reservoir. Tlie water from the reservoir will bo delivered ut the mine by a
diteh 10A miles long, the dimensions of
which are 11 feet top, 5 feet bottom, ,'i
feet depth, grade 6 feet per mile, capacity
2500 miner's inches of water.

This change bus excited no end of comment on the street nnd opinions as to the

it meunH a merging with the Butte & Boston, tho latter being a New York company. Those who hold this opinion are
strengthened in it by the statement that
Chnrles I*. Welch is n large holder of
Hutto stoek. Some other people incline
to the lielief that the Montana insiders
lielieve thnt they can make more money
by having a huge share capital, say giving four shares of new stoek for one of
old. Still others claim Unit the. change
has been made so that the legal battles of
the company ahull be fought in New York
courts rather than in those of Montana
where tlie judges are too deep in politics,

At  Ymir,  II. C.
The mining boom has taken a great

There are several large deals on foot that

business men ns soon us completed. There
is not un empty business block in town nt
present. The town of Ymir now contains
1200 people, but it is safe to say that the
number will be more thun doubled by the
first of September next. It is estimuted
by conservative mining men that at least
1000 men will be employed in the various
mines around Ymir before the flrst of
.July. Tliere are at present about 200
miners employed by the Porto Hico, Dundee, Ymir, Nebraska Girl, Jubilee, Elise
Tiimarue, Salman River nnd Porcupine
and one or two other companies. It is
stated on good authority that the Ymir
mine alone will employ 200 men us so n
as their 40-stamp mill is put in operation
The  Santa   Rosa.
Thc tunnel in the Santa Rosa a promising property on Santa Rosa mountain
in the Rowland district, has rome into a
fine body of white quartz that has been

considerable iron sulphides mixed with
copper, and satisfactory assays have been
received from it. The tunnel on the Santa Rosa is now in a distance of 225 feet
The Missouri Claim.
An important mining deal has just been
con sum ma led at Cheweiah, Wash., by
whieh the Bay State Mining Company acquires the Missouri claim near Brown's
lake. This claim was tho property of local nnd Spokane mining men. It is developed by ,134 feet of tunneling. The
main tunnel taps the ledge 150 feet from
the surface, the ledge at this point being
about six feet wide.   The ore is copper,
gold and silver and assays well. The new
owners intend commencing work in the
near future and will sink a winze at the
face of the tunnel, going down on tiie
ledge. This company now owns four
claims in thut district, all of which are
more or less developed and show good ore
of the same general character as thc Missouri. The claims are about five miles
southwest of Cheweiah, and are easily
accessible by a good wagon road.

Portugal Is Warned.
London, April 28.���The action of Portugal in prohibiting the transmission of
news dispatches regarding warships has
caused a sensation, showing that she is
doing everything possible to aid Spain.
A dispatch from Lisbon today says:
President McKinley's notification is understood to have threatened that, unless
the Spaniards were ordered to leave St.
Vincent the United States would regard
Portugal as an ally of Spain and treat
her accordingly.
The Spanish torpedo fleet, together with
several first class cruisers, has been at
St Vincent for some time past. Daily bulletins have been received from there by
tlie Associated Press, but the action of
the Portuguese government today apparently closes this source of information regarding the movements and whereabouts
of the Spanish fleet.

New York, May 1.���Discoveries have
been made on the captured Spanish
steamer Panama which makes it very
improbable that she will ever be returned
to Spain, whatever disposition may be
made of the Buena Ventura and other
prizes taken, says tlie Key West correspondent of the Herald.
The prize commission has discovered 200
new Mauser rifles and a large consignment of swords and bayonets, besides a
quantity of fixed ammunition for the Panama's 4 14 pounder guns, which she might
have used to blow her captor, the .Mangrove, out of the water, but did not.
The Panama's captain had refused to
admit that his cargo included any contraband of war. It is believed that a further
search will reval many more weapons
and po&sibly more ammunition. The prize
commissioners also found papers tending
to show that, certain of the Panama's
passengers and old New York Spaniards
had been actively engaged in plans for
aiding the Spanish of Cuba in getting
arms, ammunition and supplies.
The discovery of these documents has
already led to an order from Washington
to hold as prisoners of war a large number of the passengers of the Panama.
Some patriotic sailors and marines object because the Spanish flag still flies
over the Panama, Guido and other prizes
of war.
After Qualtrough came ashore from the
Guido, having turned his prize over to the
United States federal authorities, one of
the marine guards hauled down the Spanish flag from tiie staff, where it floated
under the stars and stripes and announced
his intention of keeping the Spanish flag
as a souvenir. He has been sharply reprimanded and compelled to restore the
flag to its place as it is rightfully there
until the prize court condemns the ship.
The only excuse the marine gave for his
action was that he did not think the
Spaniards should be permitted to fly their
flag in Key West harbor.
Captain Lee to Accompany the Int-
ted States Army ln Cuba.
A cable dispatch says that Captain
Lee's appointment as military attache in
Cuba has been announced in tlie London,
papers. This means that he will follow
the United States army wherever it seems
to him most, desirable to go, and where
tlie most fighting will be going on. At
the termination of tho war he will report
to the war office everything of interest ho
has seen. In fact, he might be called the
confidential government reporter for tho
British authorities.
His appointment is of the greatest importance to the British military service.
It resembles that of General Sheridan for
the United States with the German army
during the Franco-PruBsian war, nnd of
Cnptani du Bomrlay and Captain Cavendish for Great Britain with the Japanese
and the Chinese army respectively during
the recent wnr in Asia.
It is expected that an officer will also
be appointed by the British government
to accompany the Spanish army.
This is not the first time Capain Lee
has been chosen to perform service over
and above thc mere routine of duty. He
spent last summer at Dyea examining
that district and going over the various
trails leading to the Klondike. The previous summer he spent in Russia examining the fortifications.

it has become quite the custom with
morning newspapers to issue a Sunday
edition of extra size and more varied
contents than on other days. This
course is rightly reasoned liom the
idea that there ia as a rule, leisure for
a more extended rending on Sunday
than on business days. The Neva is in
accord with this idea and presents every Sunday morning an eight page
edition in which a literary variety may
be found ranging from the latest news
and general Information to the readable short story and bits of current
As explained in our first. is��ue of the
daily News, the Sunday News is sent
to all old subscribers to the weekly
edition of the B. C. News, who have
not wvored their subscriptions changed
to tbe daily, lt will be found to be in
many respects a summary of the most
desirable news of the previous week,
and is of the same size as tho former
weekly edition.
The moral aspect of Sunday newspapers i�� frequently objected to by
people who do nut stop to consider tbo
real t.iets of the cuse. A moment's
consideration would show that as far
aa Sabbath observance is concerned,
it would bo a good deal more irreligious to publish a Monday morning
newspaper than a Sunday one, for the
former would work the whole force of
the ofilce on Sunday, while thc Sunday
paper is nearly completed by 12 o'clock
Saturday night, and the editors and
printers get a chance to rest Sunday.
The Sunday newspaper has coma to
stay.   There is not a morning daily in
British Columbia that does  not  publish Sunday and omit   Monday.    Pelt

'ne' News Ib quite regularly making
additions of value to Its stuff. Among
these it. is pleased to notethatMr,
George Becker, the well known local
assayer.wlll contribute regularly hereafter to its columns. Mr. Becker is a
graduate of the University of Minnei: i-
ta and i*', apart from lite special profession, an agreeable and forcible writer
u.id thinker. His contributions will
not be confined to mining topics, but
will take t general range.
British Columbia if they quietly submit to the importation of a chief justice when able barristers who have
earned .such promotion hero arc plentiful.
It is "Admiral" Dewey all right
now. His wonderful exploit of annihilating the Spanish lleet without the
loss of one of his men will long live in
For vague diffuseness the telegram
elsewhere quoting from Le Temps of
Paris is worthy of President McKinley.
No class of people will hail tho downfall oi the Spaniard with moro joy than
the Hebrew. Israel has many unbalanced accounts against Spain which
she is anxious to settle. The atrocities
practiced on the Jews during the mid-
dlo ages and even continued almost to
our own time, is exemplified in Spanish history in Cuba, What persecutions at tho skate and rack the victims
suffered we can conceive when we road
of Cortez' cutting off the hands of his
Indian guides and hunting tho aborigines with dogs. Jews in America arc
organizing rogiments and subscribing
funds to assist in crushing their old
enemy. Hero we have illustrated the
old Mosaic law, "An eye for an eye and
a tooth for a tooth."
Yellow journalism nourishes in En-
rope as well as America. Even in staid
old Germany newspapers claim defeat
for Americans and assert that Yankee
warships havo been blown up. That
tho govornment is friendly, is seen in
the hint the newspapers have received
to stop thoir abuse, as it was directly
opposed to tho government's attitude.
No less roliable a porson than Ambassador White has said: "There is absolutely no reason to expoct anything
but fair and impartial neutrality from
Germany, which is all the United
States wants or expects." Neutrality
has not been formally declared bo-
cause of the profits which will accrue
to German merchants from the war.
In the absence of such a declaration
Spain has done her utmost without
success to get the government to express itself, regarding a declaration as
favorable to herself.
Thoro is an art in saying things
which is not to lie despised by those
who aspire to bo good conversationalists. How many compliments sting
when they are utt.ored by kindheartocl
but      blundering      persons.      Empty
��� ohes may matte fairly good eonver-
Bfttlon when couched ill an artistic
manner) For instahoe it. sounds rory
well to say, "He never turned the
hungry from his door." What visions
of human kindness these words abjure!
But -oe how it Is spoiled when we say,
'Ho fed every tramp that came along."
Carpet-baggers do not seem to be
con lined to the United States. We
mistake the temper  of  tho  people of
Tim fate oi the non-progressive man
who refuses to co-operate with his
bo u" paper, ln building up the com-
munity may be well illustrated by tbe
following story from Old England:    A
"Miu was seen slowly digging a grave
In the church yard of r.n English town.
A passing Btrangor paused and asked
the name oi the deceased, "The old
Squire," was the answer. "What was
the complaint?" asked the stranger.
"No complaint; everybody satisfied!"
was the sexton'3 reply.

One can easily see why Engllshmeu
wish success to plans for the liberation of Cuba. Their losses through the
devastation of the island are only less
grievous than our own. Scores of cotton and tobacco estates are owned or

English capital that public works were
undertaken ln a number of Cuban cities
between 1878 and 1894. No Interest or

A case has just been decided iu England that is of Interest In this country, for the circumstances are very like
those that have frequently occurred ln
the United States, but which have not
reached the courts. The case was based
upon the charge of manslaughter iu a
game of football. The game was being played under the association football rules, which were designed specially to limit the hazard iu playing the
game ln question, it was claimed that
the defendant, contrary to the rules of
the game, charged the deceased from
behind ami threw rim violently forward against the knees of another
player, from which he received Injuries
that caused his death. The judge held
that "therules of the game were of little
consequence, for uo association could
override the law lu such a manner, nor
could It make lawful and Innocent that
which was dangerous. The law of the
land declares that It ls unlawful to do
that which Is likely to cause the death
of another, and liability cannot lie
avoided by the enactment of rules reducing the danger," and the prisoner
was held for manslaughter. The Judge
said: "But, on the other hand, If a
man Is playing according to the rules
and practice of the game, and is not
going beyond lt, It may be reasonable
to Infer that he Is not acting ln a manner which he knows will bo likely to
produce death." In the heat of playing
the game meu forget, ln the desire to
win, to observe the rules that have been
adopted In order to reduce the risk to
a minimum and do things that result
fatally to their opponents. Football has
become established ns one of the most
popular of all our Aiuerlenn sports, but
however It may be hedged about with
rules It ls a dangerous game, a fact
that is too well attested to admll of dispute. The English case was brought
to put a stop to the lawlessness of the
game as lt has been played at Rugby,

THERE are colonels and majors

who ever graced the frontier, and In

She had lieen brought up Iu garrisons

"O, yes, you will. Jack. And I shan't

with the new Mr. Ardsley, and if we
stay out here any longer every one will
guess what has happened."
"They'll kuow when they see me."
"Don't be a goose, Jack. It's only the
heart that is trying to take Itself seriously that exhibits the pain."
"Don't discuss a subject you know
nothing about.   You have no heart."
As Miss Hampden walked off with
Ardsley, she knew that 1-orlug was
wrong; that this tall boy, fresh from
West Point, as new in experience of
had ever bestowed on a man before. He
looked at her very gravely, and her
hand closed tightly over the ring. , In a
moment she w��s studying It again.
"I like this.   It's unusual." she said.

Others were killed and their bodies
were recovered and burled, but Ardsley's body was never found.
There was a tale that a fire had been
seen ou the battlefield the night aftfAf*
the encounter, and in the midst of "the
fire a tree with a form which might
have been that of a man against it.
There were Indians grouped around It.
Miss Hampden never heard the story.
She never even guessed at what had
happened until twenty years afterward.
She was the superb and spiritless
wife of a mighty general, and she was
accompanying her husband on a tout
of inspection In the West. They were
at an agency one day, and were visiting
tbe tepees. It was the agency of the In-
ber by their faces. Miss Hampden
dropped her head In her hands and
laughed with the rest.
Between the acts, Ardsley made Inquiries and learned the truth. He was
bitten with a desire to obtain the unattainable, and he was not one to dally.
He went behind the scenes.
"Whom are you going home with,
Miss Hampden?"
"I fear no one will take me nfter the
light Mr. Graves has put me lu."
"May I do so?"
She nodded, and Ardsley went back
to his seat.
"So you have refused the entire
army?" he asked, as they walked home.
"Not quite."
"The entire department?"
"Well, a fair percentage of It," she
"Are you going to refuse me?"
"I cau't say until you are offered."
"I offer myself now."
"And I accept you now."

"Put on this ring until I can get you

Now I am In earnest."
"So am I," she said.
They were very much In earnest, the
event proved; and the garrison derived
unmixed pleasure from the total, unconditional, obvious surrender of Mies
Hampden. She was as open In her Infatuation as she had always been ln
everything else. Aud Ardsley was
equally Infatuated.
He took back the class ring and gave
her a diamond which cost him three
months' pay. They were altogether
happy. So, Just a fortnight before the
day arranged for their wedding, the
gods demanded the flrst payment on
their loan.
Ardsley was ordered off on a scout.
Miss Hampden clung to Ardsley and
cried like a Uttle girl, and did not behave In the least like a woman who had
seen countless scouts. And she let him
go tc the wars remembering her standing with her arm against tbe wall and
her bead upon her arm, sobbing as If
her heart were utterly broken.
Ardsley did not come back from the
dlans that young Ardsley had fought
two decades before; and the General's
wife was nerving herself not to show
that she remembered this.
The General was examining the trinkets that bung ou a string around the
neck of a half-blind squaw.
"Here Is a West Point class ring!" he
His wife repeated her words of twenty years past.
"May I see It?" she asked, coolly.
She took It In her hands and turned It

though It seemed to have passed

picked up the class ring from among

the ring out to his wife. She raised the

happy the last time lt had been held

banter him, accosted him with a flippant air and a low, formal bow, saying, "Doctor, I am yours to my shoe-
tie." Barrow, perceiving his drift, returned the salute with, "My Lord, I a:n
yours to the ground." Rochester, Improving on this, quickly returned it
with, "Doctor, I am yours to the center;" which was as smartly followed
up by Barrow with "My Lord, I am
yours to the antipodes." Upon which
Rochester, piqued at being foiled by
one he called "a musty old piece of divinity," exclaimed, "Doctor, I am yours

The  Average   Working Woman Worships Unlimited Leisure.
The average working woman has little respect for other working women.
This doesn't mean that she is without
respect for herself, of a certain self-
satisfied sort, but it does mean thut
that self-respect Is not broad enough to
include deference for fellow wage-
earners, and lt must logically follow-
that lt Is a very low grade of personal
regard. The woman wage-earner whom
one most often meets .has but one
standard of gentleship���unlimited leisure. According to her, the worker, no
matter how creditable or remunerative
her labor may be, is something just a
little to be ashamed of; beyond the pale
of all those who sit with folded hands,
no matter how much more content,
not to say comfortable, those hands
might be If engaged lu good, honest
employment. It Ib but another poase
of the false and one time all-prevalent
squeamlshnees as to confessing financial straits; a modern development ot
that spirit that a decade ago led an Impoverished family to declare that they
only "took boarders for company." A
successful woman teacher, who did
really love her work, used to say that
she was the only member of her family she ever met who taught because
Bhe had to���all the rest did lt "just from
pure love of It." A girl whose family
have recently lost everything disposed
of some embroidery at the woman's
exchange. When an Intimate friend
congratulated her upou her gootl luck
at finding a way of making money, the
girl, out at elbows and patched as to
shoes as she was, hastened to say:
"Oh, It wasn't the money. You see, I
have so much Idle time on my bands
now, and this embroidery does entertain me so." The new phase of the
old subject was brought the other day
to the notice of the head of an exclusive and very prosperous girls' school
ln this city. The principal desired a
stenographer ln place of the amanuensis she had heretofore had.
Applicants one after another presented themselves, aud with each one
the principal found some cherished notion as to the good sense and stability
of the modern business woman laid
low. If lt wasn't oue thing lt was another, but she at last realized that they
were all Imbued with the l'm-as-good-
as-you-are Idea. The principal finally
engaged a young girl who was less
"uppish" than the others and whose
spotted veil was not quite so obtrusive. At the end of one week the girl
resigned her place. "Why, I pay you
$3 a week more than you were getting
ln your downtown office," said tlie
leacher. "Yes," said the girl, "but 1
like It better in the office. It's more
fun for oue thing, and then������" She
paused, but the teacher begged her to
continue. "Well, It's this way." the
girl finally blurted out; "you see, it's
sort of more honorable for me. It Isn't
because I don't Hke to be employed
by a lady, but you're a lady who works.
Why. none of my lady friends 'do anything' except one or two. and they're
employed by gentlemen in downtown
offices; I don't know any typelady
who Is employed by a woman who
works, and, to fell the truth, we think
it a llitle beneath us. I'm sorry." with
a commiserating glance at the teacher,
"but the $3 a week extra couldn't make
up for lt, you know." The teacher
Steadied her voice for one question.
"Doq'1 your men employers in the offices work?" she asked. "Oh, yes, indeed," was the answer, "but then
they're men. It's different with women." It may be of Interest to add that
this teacher subsequently Secured a
man stenographer, he having no objection, he said, "to being employed by a
woman who worked." With such
standards as those in the minds of the
rank and Ilie the business woman has
11 good many lengths to go before she
can hope to attain even a quotn of that
which her apostles declare for her.���

System  lltiilt lit by America's Creates.   Medicine.
"I wa.s a physical wreck and I had
been a constant smoker for Ilu years. My
wife who had confidence in Hood's Sarsaparilla. purchased the first bottle, and
I began taking it. I continued the use
of the medicine according to directions.
The result was a strengthening and toning up of my whole system. In a short
time after I began taking it I was able
to lay away my pipe, and I have had no
desire for the use of tobacco since that
time. Hood's Sarsaparilla thoroughly
purified my blood and drove all the poison out of my system. It has made me
a new and free man. Before taking it 1
tried many times to give up smokin;*,.
and took many preparations with the
hope of regaining my health but all these
attempts failed. My health is now so
good that I do not need any medicine.
