The   Ladles  to Work  lo  Raise  Funds  for
tbe Hospital.
Tbe members of the Ladies' Aid of
each church iti Cranbrook are requested
to meet at tbe home of Mrs. Manee neit
M unity ute-mon at 4:00. Theobjrct
of this meeting is to devise plans for
Home large entertainment that will in
lerrsl the people of Cranbrook ami thin
portion of Soulh Kust Kootenay to raise
funds for the new hospital, now almnsi
ready for occupancy. This i> a most
commendable move, ami whatever the
ladies decide upon The Herald feels thai
il ran safely assert tbey will receive Ibe
enthusiastic ami unanimous support of
the people, regardless of creed or relig
loui affiliation 1
The new hospital, now rapidly nearing
completion, is a magnificent three story
building, especially designed for tbe purpose to which it is dedicated. It has
been erected at great expense and the institution is In need of money. The good
tlmt bas ti-eeti done in South East Kootenay by the Sisters iu the building now
in use at tbe Mission, can never be estimated, and the worda of gratitude spoken by hundreds who have recovered under the watchful care of the Sisters tell
only a portion of the story. The new Institution is deserving of assistance from
every town in this district. It is so located that patients can be easily taken
from the train to the building where the
best of accommodations will be provided.
The ladies are to engage in a noble
work in raising funds for such au institution, and the people ofthe district will
be with them.
STRICKEN   BV   PARALYSIS.
Mrs. C. Clark, of Fort Steele, li the Ua-
fortunate One.
Mrs. C. Clark, of Fort Steele, suffered
a severe paralytic stroke a few days ago
and (or some time waa unable to speak.
Mr. Clark bas been suffering with a
felon for some time and that night had
gotten relief, and was sleeping in another
room. Mrs, Clark was alone and it was
somewhere near 12 o'clock when it occurred, but hhe was nimble to secure assistance until ber condition was discovered the following morning.
The sympathy of South Kast Kootenay goes out to Ibe poor lady in her
misfortune For 17 years she has resided In Fart Steele and to be acquainted
witb her was to reconcile one to old age.
Her many estimable qualities had endeared her to all of the early settlers,
and their sorrow on learning of this
calamity will be great indeed.

QENERAL RESULTS EXPECTED IW ALL
The returns in lhe Dominion election,
as a whole, diil nut neetn lo be much nf
a surprise to either Conservatives or
Liberals, Of ronrse there were some
surprises in several imliviiliiiil contests
Imt it was generally concluded tlmt the
Laurier goverumenl would lie sustained.
Up to 12 o'clock last night tlu* results ;is
shown by the returns were ns follows:

Five more to benr from.
These figures show- that the people j
have sustained Lnuiier ami his government by a large majority.
A remarkable feature nl the contest
was the fact that every member of lhe ]
government was returned, while every
Conservative leader of any prominence !
with the exception of Ilnggart and
Charles Hibbert Tupper, were defeated, j
Hugh John McDonald, who wns looked :
upon as the coming lender of the parlv
was defeated by Hon. Clifford Sifton In
Brandon, Sir Charles Tupper|was defeated iu Novia Scotia, Montague was defeated, in Hatdiuiand, and Foster uas
snowed under by Blair in St. John.
From the returns available it appears
that the Conservatives made a net gain
of about 14 seats in Ontario and three in
Manitoba. In the Territories and British Columbia no change was made in the
respective ttrength of the parties. In
Prince Kdward Island tbe Liberals made
a net gain of one seat. In New Brunswick they gained live. In Nova Scotia
they gained six and in Quebec they
gained ten. These figures give a gain
of seventeen seats for the Conservatives
as against a gain of 22 for the Liberals,
which would make tbe Liberal majority
greater hy five, from the returns available, than it was in the last house.
Thc rlertion in the Stales was settled
Tuesday and lhe early reading of tbe returns showed beyond question that Brvnn
bad failed the second lime, and that
McKinley woidd remain iu the while
bouse four years more. The republican
victory is overwhelming. The defeat of
Bryan is absolute and positive. New
Vork, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, South
Dakota, California and Washington, all
debatable slates, turned to false gods
and Mnmon this year.
It is hard to predict what tbe election
means for the future. The American
people bave made a clear declaration
Thc Jssues were plain, and they have
voted for trust isms, militarism, expansion hy conquest, high tariff and a
straight gold (-standard. If, within the
next four years, the common people ol
that country feel the heavy baud of oppression, tbey have only themselves to
blame, Tbe election was in their bauds
and they decided it in favor of MeKiu-
leyism and Ilaiinaism, and tbey defeat-
ed W, J. Bryan, a noble type of Ameri-
ican citizenship, a tearless tribune ofthe
people, who lias always stood by tbe
working people and against the unjust
oppression of capital. They have made
their bed, aud it is a twenty to one shot
they will have Borne hard sleeping during the next four years.
l:xplorli( Liar* Hive Been (tun to tbe Sul-
llvii Mine.
Kngineer Richanlson, of the local C.
P. K. corps, has been in Kimberley this
week running an exploration line lo the
Sullivan mine to see what grades can be
secured fur a branch from the North
Stnr line, ll is evident that the C. P. R
is willing to build, as the future tonnage
ol the Sullivan Is no longer a question.
In fact, at the present lime ore Is piled
up all over the property and ia increasing ou ihem at an enormous rate, lt
has been impossible to make headway
with the teams, owing tn the soft condition of the roads, and better means of
transporting the ore is now an absolute
necessity,

against big odds.
Sir Charles Tupper Ilcalcn,
According to the reports received last
night Sir Charles Tupper met  defeat in
his own riding, an event tbat has caused
great surprise.
Sifton Defeiti McDonald.
Probably the bitterest fight in the Dominion* was the Sifton-McDotiidd nin-
test iu Manitoba. The whole country
was interested in the contest, ami never
before had every inch of a district been
fought so hard. The latest reports slum
that Sifton wou the battle by four or live
hundred.	
Oliver Beats Bennett.
In the Territories the fight between
Frank Oliver and Mr. Bennett attracted
□o little attention, and the latest returns
show a victory for Oliver, the Liberal
candidate.

In 1896 with a majority of 1054, Lake's

On last Snturd-iy night lhe electors of
Cranbrook had an opportunity nfhear-
ing Mr. McNeil, the Conservative candidate (or Vale-Cariboo at the coming
Dominion election, and also Mayor
Goodeve, of Rosslaud.
Owing to the fact tbat the meeting was
billed for Saturday night, a number ol
merchants and others were prevented
from being present, but notwithstanding
Ihis a goodly number ol people turned
out lo hear the C( nservative side ol the
story.
Al 8:45 tbe meeting wai railed to order at VVentWOrtll hall l.y the chairman,
J. Hutchison, wbo introduced Candidate
McNeil to those present. Mr. McNeil
spoke for about an hour and Confined bis
remarks lo shoeing how lhe promises of
the Liberal parly mule before the la>l
election, hud been broken. He argued
that oul of Ihe ten planks of the Liberal
platform not one was carried out. He
Bald that if elected be would go to Ottawa to support the Liberal*Cousetvatwe
party and that the policy ol that part)
would be his parly. "The people of
British Columbia, "he said, "could thank
tlle Conservative party that they were
able to live in the country. It was Sir
John A. McDonald and bis party who
luok British Columbia into the confederation of provinces and promised to build
a transcontinental railway, which pledge
lias beeu fulfilled." Mr. McNeil wns
gieeted wilh much applause at the conclusion of his speech.
The chairman then introduced Mayer
Goodeve., of Kossland. Mr Goodeve is
a convincing spi-aker and lie •■went
afler" the present government with both
feet. He dwelt fur some time on the
Yukon Railway bill, which was thrown
out by tbe senate. He said the govern*
ment was prepared lo give MeKenzie &
Mann 3559 square miles of gold bearing
land including lhe mineral therein to
build a tramway, (he said it could uot he
called a railway!, a distance ul 150 miles
—these .-,559 squure miles tu be picked
ftom lime lu time as the contractors saw
fit. Mr, Goodeve s.id that there were
not 3559 square miles uf gold bearing
land iu the Dominion, let alone the Vu«
kon. He called it an iniquitous bill and
said that Canada could thank the senate
for throwing it out,
He spoke al length of the way in
which ihe present administration has
handed over the coal oil industry to the
Standard Oil cumpany and showed bow
the people of Canada loose annually two
million!* of dollars which was saved under the Conservative regime.
He spoke of the Drummard counties
railway scandal and many other things,
and held Ids audience throughout.
Whether one agrees nr differs with Mr.
Goodeve, he is undoubted 1) a most pleasing speaker.
Tlie meeting closed at about 11130 with
cheers for the Queen, McNeil and Goodeve,
P. Burns In Luck.
"Unto him that hath shall be given"
is well exemplified In the case of Mr.
Patrick Hums, the cattle king of the
west. Some years ago he assisted a
mining e*pert and engineer whom he
met in British Columbia but the man
did not make a success of it and went
away. Mr. Bums lost sight of him.
Some time ago he wrole to Mr. Burns
saying he had discovered rich copper
deposits in Old Mexico and asking Mr.
Bums to assist him in development.
Mr. Burns sent a man down to report.
He returned and said that everything
the discoverer had reported was true.
Not satisfied with this Mr. Burns sent
another man to report and he came
hack with the same story. Then Mr
Burns decided to go bimself, He has
just returned after having secured control of the property, which comprises a
veritable mountain of copper and supposed to be one of the largest deposits of
copper on tbe continent. The mines,
for there are several included in this
property, are within a few miles of the
sea, which renders the transportation of
the ore easy. Steam wagons carry the
output of the mines to the sea, where it
is loaded on steamers and carried lo the
nearest smelter. Already there are over
200 men at work on the property. It is
reported in Calgary that Mr. Bums was
offered two millions of dollars for the
properly but thai he refused to sell. Mr,
Bums said that be had a high figure of
fered him fur his rights, hut he believes
Uiat when the properly has been full)
developed it wil! command I greatly increased ;.rice should he feel disposed to
sell it. lt is generally believed in Cal
gary that tbis latest good fortune will
add several millions In Mr. Burns1 b..nk
account before long. But he will not re
linqiiisb the cattle business, In that he
made his tlrst great  success nnd laid the
foundation oi his wealth, now largely
augmented, for "unto him that hath
shall he given."
GREAT   COAL   DEPOSITS
Southwestern Alberta Is Rich in Nat'
ural Resources.
COAL,    IKON    AMI    PETROLEUM
A  Wonderful   Development   Is  in
Store ior This Marvelous
Country 1
CAPITAL THE  TMIMi   NOW   NEEDED
South Bast Kootenay can boast of having as neighbors lwo of ihe richest dis-
tricts in the Dominion of Canada, The
riches of West Kootenay are now so well
known tbat there is Utile more to be said
on that subject, bnt the riches of ihe
district of Alberta areas >et not comprehended by the public. It has long been
supposed th.it tbe Pernie Coal compauy
at Pernie and the Qalt company at Lelhbridge mouopoliie 1 all tbe available co.il
south or tbe main hue of the C. P, railway, but the energy lately shown by
various wealthy corporations as well as
by individuals In searching foi other
coal beds bas produced unexpectedly
great tesulU. Immense bodies oi coal
heretofore unsuspected have been discovered, aud 11 li easy to forsee a very
large population living Along the foothills in Alberta from away north of the
Crows Nest railway down to the International boundary, 1 distance of some
sixty or seveoty miles, mining millions
ol tons of coal » year, ind engaged iu
the manufacture ol the various by products of which tbe coal industry is the
natural cause.
Large bodies of low grade iron ore are
known to exist beside the coal, and near
the Boundary line there is a very large
tract of country showing many indica-
tlons of petroleum extending for a distance of twenty miles nn each side cf the
summit between British Columbia and
Alberta. A member c! the Mormon colony at Cardston has 3 bouse and some
crude machinery on Oil creek, near the
extreme easterly end cf this petroleum
field, and from acoupleofsmall, shallow
pits dug in the gravelly clay beside tbe
creek he skiins lhe crude 01! and sells it
to his brother Mor mans for lubricating
purposes at a higher price than auy other
oil on the market m :'.'. fetch.
Whei: Nmtbetn Alberta :■* producing
petroleum in large quantities, coal by
thousands of tons fer day. and shipping
coke and pig iron in large quantities, it
will be oue of the richest districts in
North America. The interest taken in
the coal possibilities is shown by tbe
presence cm the ground of representatives
of the Fernie company, the Gait company, the Great Northern railway, a
large New York syndicate, a Spokane
syndicate and many others.
Points Un Pieper.
Pieper paints and papers, palavers
pleasingly and pugnaciously. His painting paraphernalia Is paramount. In plain
parlance Pieper pushes pencil, paint and
paper, nnd pleases patient, pessimistic,
pliable- and petulant patrons, Pieper*8
partner plays pinochle nnd paints nnd
papers.    His name is Currie.
Sidewalk lo lhc School House.
George R   Leask  secured (he contract
foi building llie sidewalk to the school
house. Tbis will be a great improvement to that part nf town.
Public Meeting.
Next Tuesday evening a meeting will
be held at Wentworth hull and it will be
addressed by Mr. Arthur L, Sifton, M.
L. A., of Calgary, brother of Hon. Clifford .Sifton, and S, S. Taylor, Q C, of

AN   UNFAIR   DISCRIMINATION.
It is unfortunate that the people of
London, while preparing tbeir celebration for the return of their soldiers
sbould give cause for unfavorable com
ment by their recognized neglect of th<
volunteers from the colonies. A Lon
don dispatch to the Toronto Globe has
tbis to ray ofthe matter :
» Ii is pointed out thnt the intense
patriotism which all this Is supposed to
signify, would he better appreciated
were the returning soldiers more representative of tlu* forces in the field, or if
there were not hundreds '.tf colonial volunteers whn have fought III South Africa,
walking the streets of London uuhon-
ored, unnoticed and uncared for. This
circumstance has caused some bitter re-
(lections to be cast on the mother country by tbe colonial sections in London,
the justice of which has been acknowledged bv several liberal-minded organs
while the regular army men are too
pleased that the "cream of public enthusiasm" over the return of the troops
Bhould be secured by a small body of
volunteers, which it is freely asserted,
cuuuot compare wilh several of the irregular units "

THE   BISHOP'S  TRAVELS
As mentioned in the last issue but one
of Tbe Herald, the Right Rev. Augustus
llnutenville, Catholic bishop of New
Westminster, arrived iu Cranbrook Friday,   the a6ih of October, accompanied
hy His Excellency Archbishop Falconlo,
apostolic delegate in Canada, aud Father
Fisher, the delegate's secretory.
At tbe Cranbrook station the party
was welcomed by a great crowd, mainly
composed ofthe Catholic citizens of this
place and n large number of the Indians
ofLSt. Eugeue Mission, headed by the
brass hnud from the industrial school i.f
the Mission, Upon the arrival of the
train, which was on schedule time, the
hand played one of their best tunes, serenading the distinguished party, and the
train, delaying more thau usual, the
apostolic delegate had time to make hc-
iju* Intance with many people and especially with Right Rev. Fathers Coc-
colo ami Ouellette and their Indians
from the Mission reservation. At the
special request of the delegate the Indians were gathered together iu the C.
P. R. Indies' waiting room to the number of over two hundred, where the delegate addressed a lew words in Italian,
which were translated to them In Iheir
own Kootenay language by Rev. Father
Coccolo, superior of St. Kugene Mission
and principal of the government industrial school of the said Mission. The interview ended by the apostolic delegate
giving to all present the papal benediction.
After the train steamed out wilh the
delegate and his secretary, Bishop Don-
teuville boarded the vehicle that was in

Although Prof. Knackfusa la usually

the production of his surprising pictures, the Herman monarch owes his
earliest introduction to the mysteries
of art to an Kuglish painter, snys the
London Chronicle. Tbe tlrst lime the
kaiser handled a brush was at Windsor; when Mr, Frith was painting the
picture of the prince of Wales' marriage for the queen. All the royal personages gave sittings to the urtist ami

prince, spent several mornings in the
room where the picture waa being
painted. To keep the child quiet Mr.
Frith gave bim some paints and brushes
nnd allowed hlm to dabble on one of the
unfinished corners of the canvas.
As a nntiiral result of this very injudicious proceeding tbe prince's face
was In a very few minutescovored with
streakn of green, blue and vermilion.
The sight of IiIh smeared face terrified
his governess, wlm bogged the artist

HOW THE GREEKS SLEEP.

In Greece the hotels of the interior

There U no common sitting-room, snys
the Atlantic Monthly. Why should

presentation of bills. The ground Iloor
is given up to a eafe or restaur nut, if
Ihe Innkeepr goca into that kind of
bust news. Very often, however, the
master of tbe Apollo hns only rooms lo

Iloor above arc often approached by
an outside stairway, and, as is to he
expected in n southern clime, they are
scantily furnished. Overfurnishing Is
a vice anywhere. Under n southern
shy it is a crime of whieh the Greeks
nre. not guilty.
There ia usually a mirror, (hough

these things were not wus the good
old time before the service had begun
m go to the particular bow-wows..
Thin that I mn going to tell happened
In the good old days. Il could not very
well happen now, because, nn I «av.
things have changed. At the time Uot-
iy Mnndcvllle's father was in command
at Apache and Hcii.v was engaged tu
be married to nn unusually line fat low,
whose nnme is not part of ilu* story.
IU* was a second lleutena.nl and he wns
in love, with nil the beautiful disregard
of the (acts of life that la characteristic
of the enamored sl-nte.
Of course the post knew of tlie engagement before either of the two
most Interested parties did. This wus
because this happened in the good old
days. For the same reason—though 11
can occur sometimes even now—opinions on the match flew thick uud fnsl
and obscured t|w> sky of charily. The)
said that the second lieutenant wus
milking n fool of himself, which wns
the only unkind remark ho fell heir to.
llul Betty fared worse, She enme of
a bad strain. There were things in the
histories ot both lifer parents that every
one knew und no oik* wns supposed to
know. Her father was Knglisli nnd had
been a jockey. He wan the son of «
conoert-hall singer mid a man whose
only nobility was his birth.
Miss Mandeville, who was more
Mexican thnn* Spanish— horo a., good
Castlllan name which covered a multitude of sins.
There were any number of Mandeville children younger than Betty, and
all unmistakably favoring their
swarthy mother, They were so dirty
tbat they wen* a disgrace to the post.
Dut Hetty waa tidy—na to dress and
wns blonde; Huffily, curllly blonde,
with 11 line skin nnd innocent blue eyes
und a rosebud mouth. It was wild she
looked like nu English professional
beauty; but there was no one to recognise the startling likeness to the concert-hall grandmother, sin* hnd n taste
for laces, mid hosiery, and high-heeled
slippers, that may hnve been cither a
Spanish or theatrical inheritance. And
she W08 beautiful beyond a question,
with a beauty tliat was only akin
deep.
After she had promised tn marry the
second lieutenant, Hetty went down to
Lowell to \isit her aunt, who was her
mother's sister aud was the wife ol
Cnpt. Locke. Hetty knew that she
would enjoy herself more lt the engagement were kept u secret. She could
keep It quiet, because it wnn in the
good old days mid news traveled slowly
uud distances were great.
fin the second day of her stay hei
aunt look her to stay over night with
Senor Fraiiqiielo in Tucson, Which
was the beginning.
The Franqiielo family was large, and
most of it dwelt in the uno bouse—an
adobe with the external whitewash
broken otf in oddly-shaped pieces, and
built as all adobes were built In tin'
good old days—om* story around a
courtyard. There was nothing in the
courtyard bul chickens and olhts—
broken and otherwise for tin* soil of
Tucson is not fertile. Outside, where
the narrow doorway faced upon the
slreet, hardly leas while under the
burning suu than the whitened walls
that lined it, 11 movklng-blrd cage of
willow hung against the house, with a
led chile stuck belweeu ita bars. II

ibe ancestral roof.

less thnn ii'ii minutes Carlos had deserted black-browetl hies and was Ian-
gulahlugnl Hottj with hlstwoaofteyos,
lues was openly w rpleluid, Carlos openly Infatuated, Hettj ojienly flirting,
lint Carlos did nm know that.
Hetty aud her mint went hack to
Lowell tho next day, nnd the same even*
Ing Curios rode over to tlw {sml to we
her.
There were six officem calling on
Miss Mandeville, sn Carlos sal apart
and sulked; bul he outstayed Ihem ull.
When they hnd goue, after o supper of
canned oyster slew and tamules, he
drew bis chair close beside the sofa upon which Hetty was half reclining.
"Wy tio you like doze ooffeecers better dan me?" ho asked her.
"1 don't," suid Betty, "they're a
liore."
"I)<) yon noot, truly?''
"Of course I don't; how could I?"
Carlos was not accustomed to Hetty's
like, and, as even those who should have
known letter, had believed ber, because
of her round, blue eyes, be was not to
Ih> blamed for his faith, "Would you
rader talk lo mc'.'"
"A great deal rather."
"llut dey haf stayed so lut-c dat I

"lt'n not late. It's only half-past
twelve. It would be too bud of ymi lo
go Jusi when we begin lo get a ahnnce
to settle down to a nice, cozy talk."
CarloH persisted coyly. "But you

"Very well" Miss Mandeville
shrugged her Bhoulders, "then you luul

Curios denied this in words that woro
neither kind nor just to lues; but Betty damned lier with faint praise,

attractiveness, it was natural lhat she
should have a great* deal of nttenllon
from the bachelors* but Carlos'devotion

lazily in the hammock on the porch,
sin* saw threo buggies, containing two
men each, coming up the line. In the
first sat Carlos nnd his brother, in the
others, remoter male relatives,
Hetty guess-vd thc truth at onee, and
her pink elu-eks turned white. She ran
inlo the house, and screamed loudly
for her uncle, •_
"Ohl Uncle Nat." she begged, wben
alio found him in Ids room, "Carlos, and
.lose, and all his nasty old relatives are
coming here. Send tbem away, won't
you? Please do." She clung to his
arm.
"Why shall I send them away? Arc

"No, no, no. llut I think they're going to ask you to let me marry them I"
"Allot them?"
Hetty losl her temper and How Into

Carlos found tho captain, and made
his demand in due form. The young
lady's father not being there, he felt
that her uncle could take the place of

herself was willing to bestow it,
"How do you know that?" the captain nsked.

"Las' night. She tell me dat she lofed

"Are you sun* she said she loved you,

You'd better suy you'll marry him after

Betty was frightened. Her defiance
changed to pleading. "Please don'l

Please."
"Conic on."
"But, Uncle Nat, l enn'tsny 1*11 mnrry

auolher day with me lo trouble you or
anyone else. I shall send her homo tonight."
Carlos' face, as he silently left tho
room, was an ugly sight.
Hetty wns sitting sulkily In the wait-
Ing-room at the Tucson station about
7:30 o'clock the same night-. Iter uncle

The partners gave him a week's holiday, nml bis fellow clerks raised a

be saw Ids recently married old bookkeeper, but alone.
"Where's your wife?" nsked the principal.

INVENTOR OF "LOG ROLLING."
Senntor Smvy-fr (Irl-Klnnt-r-d Tlmt  Effective Form <>' Leglelatloii,
Senator Phlletua Sawyer wns the Inventor of thnt form of legislation known
as "log rolling." It was the practical result of his ability to accomplish tilings.
He never cared for show. He never made
a speech iu his life, but uu muu enjoyed
the Bensatlon ot lucceii mure keenly.
Wlmt he undertook he carried out, end if
he couldn't do it in one way he did it iu
another. He hnd a large share of that
faculty the Yankees call "contrivance,"
which enabled him to devise means toi
accomplishing bli purpose that would unt
have suggested themselves to any other
man. The "log rolling" method of legislation wns suggested to him liy the familiar habits nt the lumbermen In his own
country, who help each other roll the log*
from the winter camp in the bHiiks ot
the ucarest stream, where they enn be
caught by tho spring rise. It wuh the application of this neighborly practlcs which
enabled Mr. Sawyer to secure legislation
Hint could not otherwlas have been passed, nml he gave the methoil ita Lame.
Wisconsin needed a guud deal of legislation when he first dime to congress, uud
Mr. Sawyer secured more thnn nny 10
other men could hnve dont, He let hla
hills accumulate until toward the cud of
the BCBSlon, when he would lnke up thc
cnlciidnr uml tnnke nicinorniiiliiin.-i of vn-
rlous measures In which Influential men
In the llOUBO nnd senate wer-w iiiteirsted.
Then lie would eall llieni together nt hll
honse or nt his committee room ami say:
"lloys, we've got tO iiii u little log rolling if we get our timher to the mill thin
BCSBlon." Tin* result would he an agreement to Hliiml hy each other nud throw
nil their combined lufluenco In favor of a
list of bills which he Iiml mude out and
handed to members of the combine. The
work was conducted in secret and wus almost nlways successful, so that the hub-
Its of the Wisconsin lumberman now prevail lu every legislative body lu the
world.
Thc river ami harbor appropriation bill
originated in that wny. Formerly a separate measure would he passed for each
river or harbor that required improvement, but under Mr. Sawyer's log rolling
system the members of congress interested iu such appropriations organized a
trust, which finally grow Into a regular
annual appropriation bill and a special
committee to frame it.—Washington Letter ia Chicago Bucord.
PARSON, FOX AND HOUND.
The Man Who Waa Short » Ilowud
Made the l'araon Own tip.
The politicinn told mc this story after
wc had concluded the interview. He told
It to Illustrate n point in his interview.
No matter whnt the point was, the story
will apply to n great mnny points.
"Our minister," said he, "supplies for a
church over in.the back part of the town
aud drives over there every forenoon.
Tho olher day, iu the course of his sermon in the back part of the town, he used
this illustration:
" 'As 1 was driving here this morning,
brethren,' he said, 'I heard the deep hay
of a hound on the hillside near, nnd, looking up, I beheld a little fox running.
" 'But though the fox was running hard
and fast the hound was mnking great
plunges through the snow and was gaining with every leap, and at last the hound
overtook the little fox, and that was the
end.
" 'Thus, brethren, does sin with horrid
hayings pursue mankind, ready to slny
and devour and destroy,' etc.
"At the conclusion of the sermon there
I came one to the pulpit and twirled his
lint in his hnud nml asked If he might
have a few moments' conversation wilh
the parson.  So they retreated to one side.
" 'You spoke of seeing a hound this
morning, elder,' caiil the man. 'Would
you mind telling me how that hound was
marked?1
" 'I can't say that I noticed,' replied tha
minister, hemming and hawing.
" 'You sec, elder, I have lost a hound,'
continued the mnn, 'aud I thought you
might be able to help me a little iu finding him.'
" 'My denr man,' said the elder,
straightening himself nud patting the
other's shoulder, 'tlmt was an Imaginary
hound for the purpose of illustration,'
"And." continued the politicinn, "I
know something nbout these Imaginary
hounds in politics. I've pulled my old
wallet mnny times to buy meat for 'cm."

HOW A PLANT FEEDS.
Dlffeatlve  1'roceNnca  Arc Carried on
In Hh Living CelU,
It is more than 2,000 years since philosophers began to speculate nhollt the
food of plants nnd what we may term
their "digestive" processes, hut it is only
during the lust halt century that really
clear and definite notions concerning thc
food supplies of the vegetable world hnve
been generally ncceptod by scientific men.
As far as is known, the first botanical
experiment ever performed was conducted by Van Ilclnmnt. He placed In a put
200 pounds of dried earth, uud lu it he
planted a willow branch which weighed
live pounds. He kept the whole covered
up nud daily watered tho earth with rainwater. After five yeurs* growth the willow was taken up and again weighed
and was found to hnve gained 104 pounds.
The earth iu the pot was dried and
weighed and had lost only two ounces.
Knowledge was not yet sufficiently nil
viiiiei-d to finable Van Helmunt to interpret these striking results Correctly, and
he enme to the erroneous conclusion that
the increased weight of the plant was due
to the water which luul been supplied to
the roots. He therefore llokod upon this
experiment as supporting the theory
which he had advanced—vis, that plains
required no food but wnter.
Stephen Hales advanced the subject ii
great step by indicating that much of the
increase in weight of plants was derived
from carbon dioxide iu the air.
Vegetable cells contain n liquid known
hs "cell snp," whieh is water holding in
solution various materials which have
been taken Up from without by the rools
and leaves. These materials lire thus
broimht in contact with tlie protoplasm,
which causes thein to undergo changes in
composition which prepare thein to be
added to the substance of the plant.
Thus it is in the protoplasm uf the living
ceils of the plant thnt those "digestive"
processes are carried on which Aristotle
believed to occur in the soil. We see,
then, lhat the living cells are microscopic laboratories in which tbe digestion
of the food of the plant is carried on.—

Pretty Hit ot Suiientltlon,
When a Chinese baby takes n nap,
people think its soul is having n rest-
going oul for a long walk perhaps. If
the imp is tl very long one, the mother is
frightened. She is afraid that her baby's
soul has wandered too fat* nwny nnd
cannot Ond its way home. If it doesn't
come buck, of course the baby will never
awaken. Sometimes men nro .sent out
Into the sheets to call the baby's name
over nml over again, as though it were a
real child lost. They hopo to lend the
toul back home.
If a hnhy sleeps while it is being carried from one place to nuother, the danger nf losing tlie soul along tho wny is
