London, Sept. 16.���At the semi-an-
nual meeting of the Bank ol England
today Governor Hugh (.'. i-5��� tii :��� said:
'���You are probably aware or tbe pro-1
posals laid before ifha government in
the summer by the United States and
France, whereby the country might increase its use of silver as a contribution to an international agreement,
which, while not uiVectii ig our cold
standard) might enable the inintu of
France and America to resume rree
coinage. Among the proposal! was
ono asking this bank to hold the
amount of silver permissible under the
act of 1844 as against its notes."
The governor then read a letter
dated July 29, addressed to the chancellor of the exchequer, Sir Michael
Hicks-Beach.    It was as follows:
"Referring to our conversation, we
beg to say that tho bank is prepared to
carry out what is laid flow 0 as permissible in the bank charier, viz: To hold
one-fifth of its note issue In silver, provided always thai the French mint is
again opened to the free coinage of sil
\er, aud that the prices al which silver
is procurable and saleable are satisfactory."
Replying to questions, the governor
said tho bank had not had any negotiations with the United State monetary
commission, adding; "We havo bought
no silver. All we hare done is to agree,
under certain i IrCUmstauces, to carry
out what ia permissible ,.i.dor the act
of 1844."    '

The letter Claused surprisingly little

of the bimetallic league. The secretary
ofthe Bank of l.r gland, (Jeorgu F.

the Bank of England depended upon
the reopening of the Indian mints, replied:
"That in a political question, and
does not oonoern us."

Packer's Great Irrigation Enterprise a Success.
Hundreds of Acres of Wheat. T.iind Along
the   Sacramento   River  Supplied With Water.
Pumping plants have been so improved in the last few years as to lead
one to hope that in that direction lies
the solution of the irrigation question.
George F. Packer, although considered
ono of the most conservative men in
the county, has led off in a number of
thingB. 'J~��a(s years ago he checked off
some land 9.n_ put in a flume lor winter irrigation and planted nlfulfa. He
made a survey himself to determine tlie
practicability of taking the water out
of the river below Stony creek to water
the river lands, and wanted the co-operation of some of the farmers to build
the canal. Ke opposed both the Colusa
and the Central districts because ho did
not heliev. in that plan���and time has
shown that he was wiser in that than
many of us. He wanted to know who
was to manage.
Again he comes to the front. The
Hercules Gas Engine Works of San
Francisco  has just  completed, on  hia
the price of the fuel is loss than 10
cents a gallon. If the whole force
should bo used, there would bo only
eight gallons an hour, or less than 200
gallons a day of 24 hours. The fuc
item then is less than $20 for covering
88 acres 10 inches deep with water���or
less than 00 cents an acre. If used for
wheat, one sack to the acre will pay all
the expenses of putting 10 inohes of
water on it just as it is wanted most.
This pumping plant, destined to
revolutionize agriculture in the Sacramento valley, was put in operation Friday, August 6.
Early in the morning a party of Co-
lusans drove to the ranch of Mr. PackJ^
er, which is on the river below Princeton, to see the great pump make a trial
of its strength. Tlie air was cool and
tbe drive most pleasant, though dusty.
Arriving, they found the engine placed
in a concrete oblong, Bquare basin,
sloping towards the cut in the levee
that leads to the river and the great
28-inch iron pipe extending from a
22x22 foot reservoir down tlie concrete
basin, on through the cut in the levee
and river bank into the water. The
machinery was all clean and bright and
(J. W. TibbettB and Arthur Pope were
on hand to put it in motion. John E.
Doak of San Francisco, having tho
work in charge, was there, and as the
engine started, the great belts  moving
home place, the largest gasoline pumping plant in existence, which will be
used for pumping water from the river
with which to irrigate several hundred
acres of land.
This plant consists of an 80-horso
power, horizontal single cylinder, Hercules engine and a Krogh Manufacturing Company's 15-inoh centrifugal
pump, guaranteed to raise 6,000 gallons of water per minute 27 feot high.
There is also a Btnallerpumpof 400 gallons a minute capacity driven by the
same engine. This is for tank purposes.
The engine is arranged to nue either
gasoline or distillate oil, and as the latter is very chenp it will no doubt be
the fuel selected for use. Tho 20-inch
suction pipo, made of No. 10 steel,
passeB through the levee, on an incline,
into the river, and at its lower end is
a large foot valve weighing 1,200
A 20-inch discharge pipo carries the
water from the pump to a head box 22
feet square and �� feet high. For the
foundation of the machinery an excavation was made und filled with concrete.
The first test made showed a muoh
larger pumping capacity than the contract called for, the flow of water exceeding 7,200 gallons a minute or 482,-
000 gallonB an hour, or 10,888,000 gallons per day of 24 hours���enough water
to cover 884 acres an inch deep, or 88
acres 10 inohes deep every day of 24
A very important part is the exceedingly small cost of the fuel, it being
only one-eighth gallon per hour for
each  horse  power  actually used, and
slowly at first, and increasing in velocity, the water began to come with
force into the reservoir. It gushed for
awhile, when ono of tho smaller parts
of the engine became clogged, and it
was stopped for arrangement. Just
then, as all stood still, thero was a
splash and a wild shout came from
those who had climbed upon tlie edge
of the reservoir. All rushed up and
found Mr. Stice, of Red Bluff, who is
here buying fruit, floundering around
in tho water, having lost his balance
and tumbled in. There was much merriment at his expense, and it had a
healthy action on the crowd, bringing
laughter and good will all around.
Again, the engines started, and forcing 7,200 gallons to the minute, the
great reservoir was soon overflowing,
and all pronounced it the grandest of
The success of Mr. Packer's enterprise will show conclusively that it
will be immensely profitable to irrigate
even wheat lands that are at all favorably situated. Who would not give a
sack of whpat an acre for the privilege
of 10 inches of water at will? It would
make a difference, one year with another, of five to ten sacks; there need
be no summer-fallowing. A certain
crop every year. But then tliere comes
in a more profitable crop���alfalfa and
sugar beets.
This plant was put in for Mr. Packer
for $3,500, but the head of the company informs us that this was an inducement and that another would come

Italy's Cotton Manurneturei.
The growth of tho cotton industry in
Loin hardy, according to consular reports, has been remarkable���that is,
the number of spindles in Italy is stated to be nearly 1,800,000; also some
70,000 power looms, besides a very
large number of hand looms; and of nil
those about half are credited to Lom-
bardy, and, as a large proportion of
the spinning mills work day and night,
the spindles may bo calculated as
equivalent to 2,500,000 in countries
where only day work prevails. All
kinds of raw cotton are used, but chiefly
Indian and American of medium quality. Until recently the yarns were
almost entirely confinod to the lower
counts, even the general average being
20's to 22's, bnt many spinners are
turning their attention to the finer
counts, which have hitherto been imported from Switzerland and England,

A Avenue,        ....        Casio, B. C. NEW BICYCLE INVENTIONS.
Chalnless    lliill-llrnriiii>,     Compound
Crank and Carrier  Wheel*.
Two inventors, an Englishman and
an American, have recently applied for
patents on bicycle Improvements which
refer directly to the gearing. The Englishman furnishes u compound crank,
retaining the chain. The American invention is one of the form: of a chalnless wheel which is n forerunner of
the kind to be placed on the market
next season.
The Englishman claims that his Invention will enable a rider to attain a
remarkable rate of speed, for the reason that almost double the propelling
power can be obtained without any increase of exertion. With It he predicts
thnt a racing man can easily ride a
mile a minute.
The American machine shows the
sprocket-wheel connected with ihe
smaller one on the hub of the rear
wheel by a cog-wheel. The middle or
connecting Wheel, which acts ns a substitute for a chain, Is held In place by
a circular support fastened to the
frame. The entire genr works nre ballbearing and are inclosed within an
aluminum case.
Tlie New York Herald reports that a
syndicate, composed of four New-Yorkers, has decided to use the bicycle ns a
carrier for men and supplies from
"civilization to Klondyke." The bicycle will be used to transport supplies
from Juneau to the gold Holds by way
of the Chllkoot pass, a distance of 700
1 he present method of carrying ln
tills district Is for one man to take a
load of 200 pounds, his limit, carry It
live miles and go back for more. The
Klondyke bicycle ls a four-wheel machine and designed to carry freight. It
is built strongly and weighs about
fifty pounds.   It is diamond frame and
steel tubing. The frame is wound with
rawhide, shrunk on, so that the miners
can handle the machine in cold weather with comfort.
From each side of the top bar two
arms of Steel project, each anil carrying a smaller wheel, about fourteen
Inches in diameter, which, when not in
use, can be folded up Inside the diamond frame. Devices for packing lnrge
quantities of material are attached to
the handle bars and rear forks, and the
machine, it Is estimated, will carry 500
pounds.   The plan Is to load It with
half the miner's equipment, drag It on
four wheels ten miles or so. Then the
rider will fold up the side wheels, ride
It. back as a bicycle and bring on the
rest of the load. A sample machine
has already been made and patents
have been applied for.
Another device for arctic comfort,
which the syndicate will control, Is n
portable house of thin boards aud felt,
which can be folded up ln small compass, ami which, when erected, will be
perfectly alr-tlght.
Seth and I caught this morning," said
Mr. Webster.
Mary was terrified at the responsibilities of conversation, but she made a
lucky hit by asking what kinds of lish
were easiest to catch. He launched
off on his favorite topic, and talked of
the gamy bass, the reluctant cod aud
their fellows.
"I suppose," said the little girl, "you
enjoy the fish which are the hardest
to catch, don't you, Mr. Webster?"
He looked round at her and laughed.
"You are beginning young, Miss Wilson," said he. "That ls the remark of
a coquette."
At dinner he embarrassed her much
by repeating the remark as a piece of
youthful precocity.
Webster Her Coachman.
When Mrs. Sherwood, the author,
who ls best known ns "M. E. W. S���"
was a young girl, she visited Daniel
Webster, at Mnrshfleld, with her father and mother. Mrs. Webster met them
in her carriage, and the little girl was
allowed to sit next Mr. Webster on the
driver's box. She was elated Indeed
when her father put her up there and
i      whispered in her ear:
"Uemember this, my daughter, you
are to drive five miles with Daniel Webster as your coachman!"
The "coachman" began at once to
make himself agreeable.
"So this Is your first visit to the sea,
Miss Wilson?" said he.
This was an additional joy. No one
had ever called her "Miss Wilson." It
made a landmark ln life. Then he pointed out Beth Peterson, who wati walking
along the road, and who stopped to take
some orders from his fellow fisherman.

Dr. E. Benjamin Andrews, recently
resigned the presidency of Brown Unl��
vorsity at Providence rather than suit
render tho liberty of expressing thfe
opinioiis he entertains on a great public Question. Dr. Andrews Is one of
the most ardent, able and conscientious
advocates of the free and unlimited
coinage of silver and has promulgated
his views whenever the occasion offered.    The directors of the    university
were displeased with his conduct and
virtually demanded silence or resignation. He chose the latter alternative.
Dr. Andrews is iW years of age anil
Is the son of a Baptist clergyman, who
lived at Montague, Mass., but preached In the town of North Sunderland.
The father's salary was $200 a year.
The son aided in the support of the
family by working Saturdays and holidays In a mill. lie also beat his energies and his back to the care of a garden patch uear the family residence,
He had n great fondness for reading
from his earliest youth. He was iu
school when the civil war broke out.
He enlisted and served until 1804,
when, after having Ireen severely
wounded at Petersburg, he returned to
New England and finished his education at Brown University. Then he
taught ln various academies and earned money enough to further educate
himself in Germany, He has been president of Brown eight years.
Alteo SI. Barrett's Case disproves the
t-ex'-i Innate Houesty.
Ever since woman entered the domain of active business, accepted and
performed the duties of trust and responsibility, It has been urged thnt the
gentler sex Is essentially honest. A
Woman embezzler litis been regarded as
an impossibility. The sex has not been
sufficient to protect them from the
commission of other crimes, but that
one would deliberately steal from an
employer ami endeavor to conceal the
defalcation has been considered of the
things not possible to nature.
Tills dream of superiority iu innate
honesty received a rude shock when
the tragic fate of Miss Alice M. Barrett, the Boston bookkeeper nnd stenographer, showed that under the same
temptation and with the same incentives at work, there can he and ls but
little,_difforence In humanity, whether
clad in skirts or trousers. Sad ns It ls
to the sorrowing relatives, sad as It
may seem to all who sympathize with
them In their double bereavement, the
pvidence was too direct to admit of
doubt. The young woman not only took
the funds of her employers, but, fearing the inevitable exposure incident to
a change in the make-up of the firm,
followed in the footsteps of so ninny of
the snnie class. She ended her own
life, rather than face the consequences
of exposure.
The story of the death and all of the
circumstances surrounding it has been
told. The fact that an effort had been
made to destroy the cash Ixiok by fire
was known within a day after the fact
was known that a bullet and not lightning caused the death of the attractive
young woman.
Scarcely anyone could be surprised
nt the result of the examination of the
firm's books, after her mother had admitted that the girl had lived on a scale
that her salary could not possibly justify, and after it hnd been shown that
the girl had suffered serious losses In
wildcat speculation. A complete chain
of circumstantial evidence had been
forged. It shows that Alice Barrett
was extravagant In her expenditures,
that she gambled lu stocks, that, she
look her employers' money in order to
keep uj) this speculation, that she set
fire to the books in order to conceal the
defalcation, and perhaps with tlie intention of destroying the building In order to do so, and that she finally shot
herself In order to avoid facing the dis-
terlal and expensive jewelry figured ln
her adornments. These things were accounted for by the young lady to th��
satisfaction of her mother, but in ordei
to explain these things the favorite
child of her mother had to resort to
further dec option.
The first venture in speculation had
proved a failure, but, added to her desire for finery, the fever of speculation
had taken possession of her. She essayed n second venture and went into tho
mire deeper and deeper. Each succeeding loss seemed but to make her the
more determined, for she hoped that
success would yet come to her.
Miss Barrett's position In the office of
Codinau & Oodman made It possible
for her to carry on this work with little
fear of detection. It is not believed
that Miss Barrett intended to steal out
and out her employer's money, but that
she wns merely using it as a means to
an end. She hoped to succeed and uiak.

Cover? and disgrace   which   she supposed threatened her.
She was endowed with a lively imagination. She did not care for men
nor for marriage, at least a marriage
wblcji would pinion her to the ordinary
duties of i< housewife. In one of her
letters she snid she preferred to sip her
own cup of tea alone nnd only stipulated that the ten should be of good quality, and that she should not be obliged
to drink It out of a cracked cup. She
thought she was denied opportunity
and she attempted to create It. Somewhere or somehow she had henrd of
the wonderful things done ln the bucket sbopB. Here, she thought, was a
quick road to wealth, not wealth for its
own sake, but for the sake of the opportunities It would give her. She lost,
and to cover this made false entries ln
the books.
It appears that Miss Barrett had
been pursuing this dangerous course
for about n year, when the awful day
of reckoning came. The books, upon
examination, show very clearly when
she begau to appropriate her employer's money, and the clerks recollect the
fact that about the same time there
was a marked change ln the personal
appearance of Miss Barrett. Her manner of dressing became more elaborate,
her clothing wai of the richest ma-
Ing (eat can be compared. The Hindu
priests tench their followers that the
rock was placed In position by the help
of the gods. In this way they add considerably to the feeling of nwe which
they desire to create. The worshipers
nt this shrine must first mnke Ihe ascent of the mountain, a matter of grent
difficulty. Then they spend seven days
of preparation In a temple built on the
solid mountain before they are penult-
ted to make the final passage to the
mysterious rocking stone. To reach
the stone it ls necessary to cross a
bridge over a great chasm. Nature
and man had combined to make this
Hindu shrine awe-inspiring to the devout. After crossing the bridge the
pilgrim mounts a ladder, to which he
clings tn terror for Ids life here and In
the hereafter. The temple on the rock
Ib necessarily a small place. Three
priests officiate lu It. The mysteries
which tnke place there no man is permitted to reveal. Europeans have seen
It from a distance.���New York Journal.

thought that 12 mills will bo sufficient
(or all purposes next year, with this bylaw passed.
Tho city is taking care of itself and
meeting all expenditures in cash and
has money in the bank. A safe Investment foi' its sinking fund would give
an additional revenue. Kaslo's debt iB
light and its credit, is now gilt edged.
From inquiries received it is thought
that the proposed debentures will sell
above par. They cannot by the terms
Of the by-law be sold for less than 06
per cent, of their face value.
For all of tbe foregoing reasons it is
believed that the vote next Monday
will be practically unanimous in favor
of the by-law, as it. should be.
The city dork has handed to the
News the fojjowin^ approximate estimate by the council of the expenditure
of tbo money receivable from the proposed $12,000 loan by-law, if it shall be

That Kaslo's streets need improving,
goes without saying. The above estimate appears to bo fair to all portions
of the city. It is stated that incidentally the apptoval of this by-law by tbe
voters will be the means of improving
and extending the city water system,
Inasmuch as part of the city revenues
that would otherwise have to be used
for street Improvement will ihen be
available for other purposes; so that
the approval of this by-law may accomplish a double purpose,
That tho above estimate is carefully
prepared and conservative, appears
from tlio fact that it. provides for an expenditure of but $11,000 of the 112,000,
allowing $1,000 as a margin for underestimates, etc.
The present bonded indebtedness of
the city is 180,000. This is the result
of the sale of the water 'debentures In
1896, which brought only 7,"i per cent of
their face value, so poor was the city's
credit then. Tho assessed valuation of
the city then was *_8:i,_."il. Its assessed
valuation this year is ��174,735, an Increase of over two-thirds of tho previous valuation. If the increase in
values for this year keeps up in as
Ijreat a proportion, which seem* more
than reasonable, the assessed value for
1888 should not fall very much short of

of Holland Bros, of this city, started
for the Klondike over a month ago.
On getting as far as Portland, however, they decided to postpone thoir
trip until spring and investigate some
new and much advertised diggings in
Trinity county, California. This they
did and a letter received from them
this week tells tho result aa follows:
"We started out for Trinity county,
where tho big gold strike was made by
the Graves Brothers, expecting to
prospect there until next spring. Thero
were four of us in tho party. We left
San Francisco iu good spirits and
three weeks later the. same pnrty was
back in "the old towu" again, a sadder
but much wiser party. The whole
thing was a fako from tho jump. All
that the Graves brothers brought to
the mint was $1,200. The papers hero
had it that they found a pocket, of
about *4."),000. So you can't bellovo all
that you read."

Thc Premier Extends the Glad Hand
to U, S. Immigrants.
The following aro extracts from the
speech delivered last week at Montreal
by Sir Wilfred Laurier, Premier of
"Let me say that, though we are a
nation, wo still form part of the great
British empire. Let me say that 1
speak not my sentiments alone, but the
sentiments of you all, as this last concession of colonial liberty has been in
the heart of every one of us, and is followed by a strengthing of the hand of
imperial unity.''
He then proceeded to spoak of the
various evidences that the dawn of a
new day had opened on Canada and
for the lirst time, perhaps, as never before, there is a consciousness in our
people of their own strength.
Proceeding in the same strain the
premier referred to tlie United States.
He said tho American republic today
has no more lauds to offer Europe, and
as a tiller sho can only satisfy the
hunger of her own people. "But if the
American nation has no more land to
offer the immigrant, we have on the
Canadian borders more countless millions of acres of tho best and most fertile soil to offer, not only to European
immigration, but to American immigration as well.
"For many and many a year and gen-
oration the American republic has
taken from us some of the best blood,
sinew and muscle of the Canadians, t
think tho day is not far distant when
this state of tilings can be reversed,and
when wo can havo on our soil some of
the best blood, muscle and sinew ofthe
American nation. I foresee the day
not far distant when American Immigration will come into our Northwest
to till our soil. We will teach them to
sing, 'God Save tho Queen,' and to become Canadian citizens."
Speaking of other matters Laurier
said tho great object of Canada was to
find markets abroad, and for the agricultural products to go across the Atlantic, and that being so, one of the
great problems to be solved was to procure cheap transportation. For the
last 20 years it seemed to him the Canadians had boen shouting 'Canada lor
Canadians' and living in a fool's para*

The Pirst House in Nelson and  thc
Old Steamer "Galena."
The current issue of the Nelson
Minor has a historical article prepared
by Charles St. Barbe, which has the
following Interesting notes of pioneer
"Tlie first house built in Nelson was
a log cabin put up in 1887 by Arthur
Bunting, a son-in-law of old Dick Fry.
It was ono of a number of others
shortly afterwards erected, whose occupants wero attracted by the silver
magnet on Toad mountain. It stood
some tifty yards west to the approach
to the government wharf and was demolished -only a short time 'ago
(August 1897) to make room for the
new Hue of railway connecting the two
railway stations. The logs of which it
was built are still lying where the
workmen throw them, >and they might
easily bo collected and put together
somewhere else. Even now, the first
house buiit in Nelson is something of a
curiosity, and in years to come it
would bo much prized.
Canada is a largo country and even
now it is exceedingly difficult to attract the attention of tho postoftico
authorities. This department i which
broods over the land like some hugo
monster keeps its brains at Ottawa
-.000 miles away. In those days although there was .a postolfiee, kept, as
it still is, by .Jtm.Gilker, Her Majesty's
mails wero left to ge'. themselves into
tho country and out of It tho best way
they could. They camo down tho
Kootenay valloy by pack train and then
trusted to what craft thoy might Hnd
for their conveyance down the lake
and river, some seventy miles to Nelson. For a long time.this'iservlce was
carried out, gratuitously, by Dr. Heu-
drix in his steamboat "Galena." The
old boat, the pionoer of the steam fleet
on Kootenay lake, was sunk in Pilot
Bay during the memorable gale of 1804.
A fews weeks ago she was towed across
the lake to Kaslo to have some necessary repairs made when it was found
that she was ;oo rotten to do anything
to. She was accordingly broken up
and her engines at one time the pride
of the lake havo been bought by a
bottling merchant. Thus the fli-Bt
house and the lirst steamboat. disappeared within a lew days ot each other.
Her owner. Dr. Hendrlx,, though not
much connected with Nelson was a
notable figure in the opening up of than
district, aud tha camp in which the
Blue Bell mine is situated is named
after him. [The "Galena" has only
been broken up as far as dismantling is
concerned. Her hull may be seen below Third street and will probably be
used as a wharf boat.   Ed. News.]
Government   at   Last  Appropriates
Money tor a Trail.
The Lavina and Ruthie Doll claims
on Haniill creek, owned by McDonald
it McLeod were recently visited by E.
J. McCune, brother of A. L. McCline
of the Payne and by Joe Moris, discoverer of the LeRol, acting for Pete Larson of Spokane, as briefly noted in the
News last week. A good many other
people are having their attention direct
to the head of Kootenay lake these
times by the fame of these and similar
Joseph Horton has located a claim
called thc Lake View adjoining the
Ruthie Bell and is sure he has the
same lead. The specimens that he
brought down were very fine. An assay on them made by W. Meadows
showed 77 ounces of silver and 67 per
cent lead.
McLaughlin & Clinton, interested
near there, report that they have authoritative information of the appropriation by tho government of #500 for the
completion of the Windermere trail
westward to Argonta, a distance of
seven or eight miles, and that work on
it is to begin at once. This will be
very welcome news to those interested
in that region, as the lack of a trail
has been seriously retarding development there for a long time. This being a through trail also from the east
to west Kootenay makes it all the more
New buildings and New Enterprises
Under Way.
A Newsman spent two hours in Sandon last Saturday, and found everything looking unusually well and lively. The rise in the price of silver
brought smiles to every face.
The new Virginia block, just completed by J. M. Harris at an expense
of $15,000 is an ornament to the town.
Into its ground floor Mr. Harris was
engaged in moving his extensive offices
assisted by Manager Smith. The
second floor is litted for law and brokerage Offices, and tho third floor has a
handsome large hall, which had been
dedicated with a free dame the night
before. The citizens of Sandon, their
wives and daughters enjoyed Mr. Harris' hospitality to the fullest extent.
The entertainment included a fine supper, also free. Over (10 couples were in
E. M, Wilson has brought over from
Fairhaven, Washington, t lie plant of a

and will doubtless make a success of
his new enterprise.
At the Ruth mine, several carloads
of new machinery have recently arrived
which.will soon augment its already
large shipping output. Tlie new machinery include also an entirely new
saw mill outfit.
The Reco is planning for extensive
shipments as soon as tho raw hiding
season begins. It has been shipping to
some extent all summer, over the Nakusp A Slocan branch   of   the C. P. R.

To Detect Telluilili���.
Any miner or prospector who has a
blow pipe, alcohol Lamp and a few
dropB of cold sulphuricacid can, in a
few minutes, determine whether tellurium is present in ores. All that is
necessary is to break off a small piece
of. the ore, place it In a small porcelain
dish previously warmed so as to avoid
breaking/ apply the blow pipe until the
ore is at an oxidizing heat, then one or
two drops of sulphuric acid on the porcelain dish; allow to mix with the ore.
The reaction will immediately follow,
if tellurium is present, by beautiful
carmine and purple colors.

London Telegraph that of late it has
been particularly noticeable that many
witnesses prefer the Scotch form of
taking the oath���by holding up the
right hand and repeating after the
judge or clerkjthe solemn words. It is
only now that people are becoming
cognizant of the fact that they need
not "kiss the book." The clause in the
oaths act of 1888, by which the Scotch
form is admissible, was not inserted to
meet a religious difficulty, but on medical grounds. Many persons have properly an objection to touching with
their lips a volume which has been
thumbed by scores of unknown persons
and may contain the germs of disease.
"Kissing tlie book" is really no essential part of the old-fashioned oath, and
the Scottish method, if imivei sally
adopted, would defeat tlie cunning
schemes of those who think their conscience is quit of pprjury when they
contrive to kiss their thumbs instead of
the book, which is generally a soiled
and evil-smelling thine..
A story is told of a Glasgow bailie on
the OCCOsion of a witness being sworn
before him. "Hold up your right arm,"
commanded tho lineal descendant of
Bailie Nicol Jarvie. "I canna dae't,"
said the witness. "Why not?" "Got
shot in that airm." "Then hold up
your left.'' "Canna due that either���
got shot in the ithor airm,too." "Then
hold up your log," responded the irate
magistrate; "no man can bo sworn in
this court without holding up something."

UTON my word it's too had!"
exclaimed Mr. Miiliiwnrtng,
as having wished everybody
good-morning he sat down to the breakfast table, and proceeded, before commencing that meal, to glance through
his leilers according to custom, "it
really is too bad!" he repeated, crimsoning with indignation, and giving an
angry stamp of his foot, In so doing
treading on the foot of Jumbo, his
wife's pet pug, nnd causing that niucli-
pampered animal to give utterance to
n loud yell, and retreat further under
the table to the shelter of his mistress'
"My dear," said Mrs. Mainwaring,
pausing in the act of pouring out tho
squire's coffee, "what is the matter
now? Nothing wrong with Sunbeam's
little foal, I trust."
"No, thanks, my dear, nnt so bad as
that," answered her husband, "but
quite bad enough, in all conscience.
It's thai dreadful fellow Wilder, at the
Lea farm, again, 1 wish to goodness
he had never come uear the place, with
all my heart."
"Horrid man," agreed Mrs. Mainwaring. "1 can't bear the sight of him.
What has he done now, dear?"
"Done?" exclaimed her husband.
''Why. stuck up barbed wire all over
his farm, to be sure, and refuses to remove H on any pretense whatever, so
Biggins writes me word.
"Here we have the hounds coming
here ou Thursday, and they Und lu
Nightingale wood, as they are perfectly certain to do, for 1 know for a fact
there are two or three foxes there, they
are equally certain to run right across
his laud, and a pretty kettle of flsh
will be the result.
"Half the hounds maimed, nnd men
nnd horses tumbling about In every direction."
"Oh! 1 can't bear the thoughts of it!"
"I shall simply have to ask Hartopp
not to draw there, and a pretty l'ool 1
shall look. 1 really don't kuow what
to do about it."
"Why not go and see the man yourself, aud try anil bring him to reason?"
suggested his wife. "Surely, my dear,
be would lisleu to you."
"Listen to me?" ejaculated the
squire. "Not he. Besides, I know perfectly well what would be the result.
He would meet my arguments with
some of his republican sentiments, and
I should lose my temper and make a
fool of myself."
"Well," sighed his wife, "it's a very
great pity, I'm sure. 1 only wish I
knew what wns best to be done. But
never mind now, dear," she added,
soothingly,"get on with your breakfast,
and then afterward you can speak to
Hlgginfl again on the subject, and perhaps you will be able to devise some
plan between you for bringing this
horrid man Wilder to renson."
"And. pray, who may this horrid
l.ijiii Wilder be?" inquired a young and
very pretty girl, whn at this Juncture
entered the room nnd sat herself down
lit tic breakfast table, after kissing
both Mr. Mninwaring and his wife lovingly nnd wishing tliein "good-morning."
"Don't nsk me, (ilndys," said he
laughingly; "don't ask If you love tne.
lie has already spoiled my breakfast
for me, and I feel perfectly certain
Unit were I to tell you nil about him he
would spoil yours, nnd that would be a
great pity, eh, my pretty niece?"
"It would, Indeed," retorted the girl,
"for 1 have such an appetite as never
was. .loklng apart, though, I am renl-
ly curious, Uncle William," she continued, "so I will compromise with you
���eat my breakfast first aud you shall
4 el I me afterward. Don't you think
that a very fair arrangement, sir?"
The squire agreed at once to the
terms, as, indeed, he would have to
anything proposed by hlg favorite
The only child of his one sister, lately dead, Gladys Onslow had taken up
her permanent abode at Charlton Towers only three weeks ago, during which
short period she had managed to convert every Individual member of the
establishment Into being her devoted
slave, Including her uncle and aunt,
who, childless as they were, quite looked upuu her as their daughter.
As for the squire, he was perfectly
helpless without her, and Miss Gladys   than ever-
was his constant companion wherever
he went.
He declared she was a better judge
of stock than his bailiff himself, and as
for her knowledge of horseflesh, who
was tliere nbout the place who could
compete with her? And how she rode
too! Many nnd many a time, when accompanying his niece In her rides, did
her uncle regret that his salad days
were over, and that he was no longer
able to pilot her over this plnce and
that, instead of looking on from the
broad back of his favorite cob while
she larked about nt her own free will,
for she was uncommonly fond of riding
over a country, was Miss Gladys,
As her groom said, "The fence wns
never made yet that could slop his
young lady wheu the hounds were running."
True to his promise, after breakfast
the squire unbosomed himself lo his
niece with regard to his refractory tenant nt the Lea farm���"the only farm,
by the way, my dear," he added,"where
I have not introduced you, for the very
good reason why, because I have such
n strong personal dislike to its tenant.
I even avoid shooting over the place as
much as possible, because I can't bear
tlie sight of the fellow, .lust fancy, my
dear, afraid even to walk over my own
property���my own property, forsooth.
Nasty, cantankerous wretch!" wound
up tiie squire in his wrath. "1 wish
somebody would knock him ou the
head.   I do, indeed!"
"Fie, for shame, sir!" exclaimed his
niece, laughing, putting her pretty
hand over his mouth as she spoke.
"And his name is Wilder?" she continued, "and I knew such a dear old
man of that name years ago���he was
one of poor papa's tenants, indeed.
"I wonder now," she mused, "could
it be the same man? He left to go to
Australia, so I understood���for I was
only a litle girl at the time. And we
were such friends, too!
"Uncle," exclaimed the girl, a flush of
excitement coming over her face, "If
you don't mind 1 will ride over this
morning and see for myself.
"If it Is the same man���and I have
a very great idea it is, do you know���I
will undertake thnt every bit of thnt
horrid wire fencing is taken down between this and to-morrow morning.
Say, I will even have a bet with you
on the subject Come, sir, what odds
will you give me?"
"I won't bet. 1 utterly decline to bet,
you little gambler," returned her laughing uncle, "for I hate losing money,
but I will tell you what I will do, my
Gladys, if you only succeed ill your undertaking, I will give you the very best
hunter or the prettiest bracelet that
can be bought for money. I believe it's
a real 'good thing' for you, too, you
minx, yoli," he added, pulling her car,
"for now I conic to think of It I believe I did hear Unit this objectionable
tenant of mine had been In Australia
before he came down here to sit upon
my shouders like the old liiau of the
"Don't say nnother word, dear uncle," cried Miss (Jhtdys. "I haven't my
belting book about me, so I seal the
bargain with this kiss (suiting the action to the word), und now I'm off to
put my habit on and order my horse."
"Good-by, dear, we shall meet again
���not on the Itlnlto, but at luncheon,"
ami bestowing another kiss on the enraptured old gentleman the lively girl
rushed from the room.
The stnble clock was Just striking
half past. 1. simultaneously with the
rumbling of the gong announcing the
fact that luncheon was ready, as Gladys Onslow with her attendant groom
came cantering through the park.
The squire, who had been waiting for
her for the last half hour, seized a hat
and rushed hastily out Into the stable
yard, where he knew she would dismount, to await her coming with mingled feelings of delight at her return,
and curiously to know how she had
succeeded on her mission of diplomacy
with his refractory tenant.
"Here I am, uncle, safe and sound,
you see, and I've had, oh! such a lark!
Brilliant's legs are full of thorns, I
fear, poor dear," exclaimed happy
Gladys, ber face flushed with pleasure
and excitement, and looking  prettier
Off her horse she jumped In her accustomed Impetuous fashion, nnd, hnv-
ng administered her nsunl hug, she
took her uncle's arm and ordered Mrn
to take her in to luncheon at once.
"Well, and how did you get ou, my
child?" inquired the squire.
"Not a word, sir, until I get into the
dining-room, and then you shall hear it
all," wns the fair tyrant's reply.
"Why, by Jove! I do verily believe
you've got over thnt old curmudgeon,
you artful little minx, you!" exclaimed
her uncle iii great glee, hurrying her
into the house as quickly as possible,
all agog to hear her news.
Through some back passages they
went, and then, opening a green baize
door, found themselves iu the entrance
"Come, now," said the squire, as they
entered the dining-room, where Mrs.
Mainwaring was waiting for them; "I
won't wait a moment longer; so tell
your aunt nnd me all about the result
of your ride this instant, miss, or I'll
retract my promise of the diamond
bracelet I made this morning."
"Listen, then, ladies nud gentlemen
���or, rather, I should say uuut and uncle," said tho fair Gladys, standing in
the center ofthe hearthrug and raising
her whip to insure silence.
"What should you say if, paying a
visit to the Lea farm to-morrow morning, you were to find that every vestige
of barbed wire had disappeared from
its fences? Would you allow thnt the
persuasive powers of your devoted
niece were somewhat of a higher order
than usual?"
"By Jove, indeed I should!" burst
forth her uncle. "But you don't mean
to say It's a fact, Gladys, that you
have actually got that old bear to do
as you say, do you?"
"Indeed I do, uncle; nnd he'R not a
bear at all, allow me to say���only rather rough, that's all, poor man. Old John
Wilder Is ns good a fellow as ever
breathed, if you only humor him a little���as you must lu future, uncle, If
only for my sake."
"Well, wonders will never cense,
that's very certain," said her uncle;
"and how on earth you manage it," he
continued, "I can't for the life of me
"I will tell you," snid Miss Gladys.
"Arrived nt the ogre's castle, having
carefully kept to the sides of the footpath all the way, partly from diplomacy, partly because I did not want
either Brilliant or myself to be annoyed by barbed wire, I Inquired of the
maid servant who came to the door if
Mr. AVIlder was at home. He wns
round in the straw yard, she said, and
she would go and fetch him, if I would
wait a moment.
"I waited accordingly, and presently
the ogre appeared. 'Bow do you do, Mr.
Wilder?' 1 said. 'Your servant, miss,'
answered he, his grim features relaxing a little, I fancied, as he looked me
over. 'You don't recollect me, I see,'
said I, 'but you and I are very old
friends for all that, Mr. Wilder.' 'Old
friends! Why, who be 'ee, then, in the
name o' forth.'?' he replied, looking at
me so hard, oh! so hard, uncle. 'Have
you quite forgotten little Gladys Onslow, who vou used to be so kind to
when you lived ut Hazoldoan farm
down In Warwickshire?' 'Forgotten!
No!' he almost roared, 'anil never shall,
that's more! And you're her? Coom,
off your horse this Instant, my pretty,
and Into the house und have a talk wi'
me over old times.' Oh, uocln the pool
old man, do you know, was so pleased
Wheu I got off my Jiorse and when he
held out his hand and 1 not only toolt
it, but gave him a kins into the bargain;
he actually shed tears iie did indeed.
Well, 1 went In nud had u glass of milk,
and we had such a talk of old times us
never was. And 'when we had linished
1 told him what I had ionic about. He
listened attentively, and then he said,
'And so you want the stuff���the darned
stuff, he called it,- uncle���down, do ee,
my dear?' 1 replied that it certainly
would please me very much, and you
aud everybody else ns well. 'Don't suy
another word,' he exclaimed, 'every bit
of It slinll be off my farm before nightfall. 1 only wish you hnd got something harder to oik me.'
"There, uncle." wound up C.lndys,
"that's how It was done, as the conjurers suy. Now, teil me what you
think of my talents us a dlploiiintist,
nnd, above all, your opinion of my dear
old friend John Wilder."
"My dear," replied the squire, kissing
his niece, "1 think you ought to be a
prime minister ut least, nnd as for your
friend John Wilder; my opinion of him
ls altogether altered. We'll lioth of us
ride over aud see him ngnln this very
afternoon, nnd I'll thank him myself."
"Aud now," said her uncle, rubbing
his hands, "which ls It to be, Gladys, a
new hunter or n diamond bracelet?"���

My sister, If you find that In spite of
following faithfully your family doctor's advice, you nre not getting well,
why do you not try another course?
Many and many a woman has quietly
written to Mrs. Pinkham, of Lynn,
Mass., stating her symptoms plainly
and clearly, and take her advice, which
was promptly
, received. The
j following let-
Iter is pretty
I ation of this:
"I had
| been sick
for six
I months; one
doctor told me I would have to go to a
hospital before I would get well. I had
female troubles in their worst form, suffered untold agonies every month ; my
womb tipped back to my backbone; had
headache, hysteria, f aintingspells, itching, leucorrhcea.
"My feet nnd hands were cold all
the time, my limbs were so weak that I
could hardiy walk around the house;
was troubled with numb spells. I followed Mrs. Pinkham's advice. 1 havo
taken four bottles of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, one bottle
of her Blood Purifier, one package of
her Sanative Wash, and am entirely
cured."���Mns. Louisa Place, 050 Belmont St., Brockton, Mass.

Sold and Lost In War.
In losing Its hold upon Cuba Spain
gives up almost its final possession in
the New World. It still holds a tiny
Island, but uses it only as a coaling aud
provision station.
Columbus found a continent across
the Atlantic and took possession of It
ln the name of his sovereign. Then
Spain "owned" the New World. But
other explorers Immediately took possession of comers of it. England took
a big slice. People came from Holland
and pnrts of England, nnd, banding
theiiuselves together, finally called
themselves the United States.
In 1801 Spain found herself deprived
of the continent she had discovered 350
years before to a great extent. The entitle eastern coast was gone, both ln
North and South America, and there
were alarming Inroads in tho center.
But Spain still owned California, Florida, Central America and all the west-
em part of South America.
To-day she owns nothing. Cuba is
practically gone from her. She does
not govern It, neither does she get Its
products. The rest of North America
has passed awny by conquest, by grant
or by purchase. South America, true,
has Spaniards living in II. But they
have formed Independent colonies and
aro known as Chileans, Bolivians, Pe-
ruvlnus aud Colombians. They love
j Spain, but they love them Selves more,
i They will not pay direct tribute or join
in her government.
Spain must soon withdraw to the
Eastern hemisphere, where she has a
' lovely little peninsula, anil confine her-
i self to that territory and a few rich
I little islnnils In the Pacific that still be-
j long lo her.
Iu losing North and South America
Spain has shown not such bad generalship, nor In the opinion of her sovereigns such bad judgment. England is
tlie only country that has been able to
divide herself gracefully and govern
lands across an ocean. She does It by
a broad policy that allows home rule
had a debt of .$7,500,000, which It seemed as If it could never pay off. and
Spain allowed the United States to take
Texas If It would assume that debt.
There was vigorous opposition at tho
time, as tlie country was lu a state of
financial distress. But Congress Insisted, and witli what good results the
subsequent history of Texas shows.
Spain by this act lost a territory of
318,000 square miles, nnd twice as large
as Ohio, New York and Pennsylvania
all three put together.
Florida meanwhile had been purchased of Spain in 1819 for $6,000,000.
There were 07,000 square miles, nud
the whole country was rich in vegetation nnd minerals. It was called the
floral region of the New World and was
named for the Spanish Easter, upon
which day it was discovered.
England, all this while, bad been taking pieces of country from the original
Spanish owners. Part of its present
Canadian territory it got because the
Spanish wanted to join the English.
Much it got from the French, who had
taken It forcibly from thc Spanish. A
little it got by purchase.
So rapidly did the land pass out of
the hands of the Spanish Crown that,
within a generation the lower 'half of
North America from being a Spanish
country became part of the United
States. California was added to the
United States In 1848, after the Mexi-
cau struggle. It embraced the immense tract that Is now divided up into
six States, and In 1849 It became the
Territory of California, A few men,
now known as "the forty-niners," went
there and came back with such astounding reports of the richness of its
fruit, the fineness of its wood and the ,
variety of its ore that others started
out. There were fairy tales told of Its
glittering sand. In 1850 it became a
State and soon proved to be the purse
of the United States, holding money
that could be traded off with foreign
countries for that which the United
States needed.
Neither Spain nor Mexico would have
parted with California, including Oregon, if they had known what lay there.
The old Spanish residents tried to keep
the secret, and from that fact comes
the romantic Spanish stories of the
An Italian Solomon.
The Duke of Ossone, while viceroy
of Naples, delivered many quaint and
clever judgments. The case is related where a young Spanish exquisite

and almost absolute Independence on
tbe part of the Governor General. Victoria Roglna's name is upon the official

people or compel them lo pay more than
they would have to pay to their own

Spain In giving up her western lands
had made some pretty good deals. Others were not so good. The outcome of
the Cuban war will tell whether she
has profiled by tlie Cuban struggle. If
she gets It absolutely back It will lie
hers forever to hold In a state of menial
subjection���to punish and starve for
generations to come. But If she parts
wltb it aud makes it self-governing, she
will not get the tribute from It which |
the island needs to pay Its own debts.
Spain's first loss, ln the early part of
the century, was the great district colling Itself Louisiana. Spain had got
Louisiana In 1702 from the Freuch,
who originally discovered It. But when
Napoleon became Consul he got Louisiana back, and the big "New Orleans
territory," and held them secure. This
embraced all the southern and middle
portions of the United States, and was
the largest and richest piece of land
then known.
The United Stntes got It from the
French ln 1803 by paying $15,000,000,
and It ls said thnt the Spanish have
never ceased to mourn that they could
not have held It until this purchase,
���which would liave enriched their then
diminished coffers greatly.
Spain's next loss was Mexico, by conquest, In 1813. On that date Mexico declared herself free. And then began a
long series of wars, ln which all countries joined, but which resulted In Mexican Independence on hard aud sure
grounds ln 18.8. Spalu lost heavily by
this war.
Texas still waa Spanish territory. But
by act of United States t '(ingress ln 1845
Texas was purchased from Spain.   It
named Bertrand Solus, while lounging
around ln the busy part of the city, was
run agalust by a porter carrying a bundle of wood on his shoulder.
The porter had called out, "Make
way, please!" several times, but without effect. He had then tried to get by
without collision, but his bundle caught
ln the young man's velvet dress and
tore It. Solus was highly Indignant,
and had the porter arrested. The viceroy, who had privately Investigated the
matter, told the porter to pretend he
was dumb, and at the trial to reply by
signs to any question that might be
put to him.
When the case came on and Solus
had made his complaint, the viceroy
turned to the porter and asked him
what he had to say In reply. The porter only shook his head and made signs
with his hands.
"Whnt judgment do you w'nnt me to
give agalust a dumb nttiu?" asked the
"Oh, your excellency," replied Solus,
falling into the trnp, "the man is an impostor. I assure you lie Is not dumb.
Before he ran Into me I distinctly heard
him cry out, 'Make way.' "
"Then," said the viceroy, sterniy, "if
you heard him ask you to make way for
him, why did you not? The fault of the
accident was entirely with yourself,
and you must give this poor mun compensation-for the trouble you have given him In bringing him here."
