Fort  Steele Delegation Ask;  tli
C P. R. for a Railroad to
Their Town.
Last S-intlay evening President Shai g t
nessy, of llie C. PR-, arrived In tlie city
from tiie east by special train, on a get •
er.'il totir of Inspection. In liis parly
were W. Why It*, general manager of tbe
lines west of Winnipeg, L. A. Hamilton,
land commissioner, P. A. Petflrson, chief
engineer, D. ti, Coyle, rccretary to Mr.
Whyte, and Mr. Holt. I'he train remained in Cranbrook that night, leaving
for the west Monday morning. President .Shr.u.;l*iH*-,*y ronfmred wilh th •
local oflicers, met the Fort Steele delegation and took a look at tlie town. He
and Mr. Hamilton expressed surprise
and pleasure at tbe growth of Cran
brook, 	
Fort Steele's board of trade, being
anxious to interview President Shaughnessy relative to the probabilities of a
brunch being built to Port Steele some
time in the future, telegraphed him tbat
they would like to meet him at Port
Steele Junction for that purpose. Mr,
Shaughnessy telegraphed to Cranbrook
that if the Port Steele people desired to
Bee him he would be pleased to grant
them an interview—not at the junctiou,
however, but at Cranbrook. This information wns telephoned over to Fort
Steele, and acting upon it, tbe delegation came to Cranbrook to see Mr.
Shaughnessy, the natural place for anything of the kind, for the reason tbat
the C. P. R. president, like everyone
else, recognizes Cranbrook as the ceutral
point,
Tbe delegation consiled of C. F. Harrington, IC J. Cann, R. O. Jennings, Dr,
Watt, R. h. T. Galbraith, G. H. Gilpin,
J. H. Harvey, K. A Ellon and A. B.
Keeler, the gentleman wbo writes
Grace's editorials. As Dr. Walt, J. A.
Harvey and Mr. Galbraith had had
more experience than any of the others
in asking the C. P. R. for favors, they
officiated as spokesmen. The party visited Mr. Shaughnessy, and were most
graciously received, and after stating
(heir case, were kindly assured that the
Crows Nest branch must hnve feeders to
make it profitable, and thnt Fort Steele,
as a miuing town, would surely have thc
serious consideration of the C. P. R.
management next summer when the
question of building branches in South
East Kootenay wai being discussed.
Mr. Galbraith thanked him. Dr. Watt
stroked his beard nnd thanked him. Mr,
Harvey cleared his throat and thanked
bim. K. A. Elton smiled. Cann
smiUd R. O Jennings looked doubtful. So did Harrington. Gilpin said
nothing, but Brother Keeler rubbed his
bands in glee, ami remarked as he left
the car, "That's enough to rub it into
Simpson.*1 The party passed up street
to the Cranbrook, looking wise aud
mysterious, and (ben taking i farewell
look at (be railroad, entered their rig
and started on their twelve mile ride
home. !

IS WAR IN EARNEST
Several Fierce Battles Have Occurred With
Loss of Lives.
British Forces Are Being Rushed to the
Front by the Thousands.
The prospect now is for a fierce wnr.
nnd the ties! Judges are al sen iu tbeir
predictions as to the probable length.
Tbe Boers arc desperate nnd will fighl
bitterly to the eud, and tbe Jobs on both
sides promises to be heavy. When tht
full English forces have reached the battle ground, the war will then be pushed
without fear or favor. Great work is
being done by tbe British in trauspott
ing troops, and a few dnys more will
greatly change tbe situation. At present the Boers hnve won a few "linor victories that on the general result will
have little or no effect. Sir Red vers
Uullers will have bis forces landed iu a
few days and will assume personal
charge of tbe campaign.
Serious Situation.
London, Oct. 23.—The Bitence at the
war oflice is ominous. There Is uo doubt
but that the Brit*sh in Natal are in great
danger. The division ro ntueli sought
for by the Boers has beeu accomplished.
Gen. Yule has been compelled to abandon the wounded aud tbe prisoners at
Dundee because his force is ioj wenk to
bold the four and a hall miles separating
Dundee aud Glencoe, where there are
3500 men and three batteries. It is regarded as not impossible tbnt Gen.
Whyte may yet be compelled to concentrate the naval forces at I/ulysuiilh
and await the arrival of the army corps.
It is expected that Commandant Eras
mus has by this time joiued Gen. Jou
bert, and tbat their combined columns
now amount to some 10,000 or 11,000.
While the Free State Boers now threatening Ladysuiith from the east, nud a
column reported to be coming from
Zululand must be reckoned with, the
tbe situation today is a grave one.
Rhodes tsks for Help.
London, Oct. -24.—The Daily Telegraph has received the following from
I.adysmith, dated Sunday, a p. tn.:
'■The Boers reported to be strong, and
under Commandant Gen. Jouberl nnd
President Kruger in person are again attacking Glencoe. Gen. Yule, commanding our troops, has moved his camp
back Into a belter defensive position."
Cecil Rhodes hns cabled for be-p at
Kimbeiley, Tbe total casualties at
Elandslagle ou Britisb side are 197;
42 killed and 155 wounded.
A Battle Imminent.
London, Oct. 25.—All dispatches from
South Africa indicate tbat another big
battle is imminent. Transvaal and
Free Stnte forces have concentrated
seven miles from Ladysuiith ou tbe direct route to Dundee. Gen. Yule, wbo
succeeded Gen. Syuions, has evacuated
Dundee and is falling back on Lady-
smith by a circuitous route, there to join
Gen. Whyte. Whetner the two British
forces totalling 13,000 men have yet united is a matter of conjecture. The situation is grave. Gen. Croufe is marching
on to Mafeking with a large force, and is
treating British territory as if it was the
Transvaal, seizing supplies on every
hand, The position at Kimberley is
unchanged, the enemy being in the
same position at Spyfouteiu. Tlie British wounded at Dundee are all prisoners
of war.
Looks Dubious.
London, Oct. 25.--The war oflice dis
patch seems to realize the worst fears.
Gen. Yule has abandoned not only Dundee but Glencoe also, and as far as present news would indicate he has neither
joined Gen. White nor reached Lady-
smith. It is evident front the official
dispatches tbat both Commandant Gen.
Joubert's column on Ihe north, and the
Orange Free State troops on the west
n iw occupy strong positions, and that
nothing hinders the Boars from following up Geu. Yule's retirement and getting around Ladysmith from tbe southeast. Until reinforcements arrive it
seems that Gen. Whyte Is obliged to
concentrate on Ladysuiith. It is believed tbe government have other dispatches that have uot yet been pub
lished. The secretary of state for war
left Mr. Choate'a residence early at the
banquet to Gen. Harrison and proceeded
to the war oflice, where even after midnight there was much activity.
The Latest News.
London, Oct. 26.—The censorship on
press dispatches is seriously effecting
news from South Africa. The war
oflice published reports that a squadron
of hussars comprising 80 ofGcers and
men have been captured bytbeltoets.
Thirty of the hussars made a brilliant
retreat, beiug pursued for miles by the
enemy. Reports of yesterday's fighting
are meagre, but it appears as if the loss
was serious to the British. The total
number beiug 13 killed au t 98 wounded.
Gen. Sy 1110ns Is doing well. Tbe Boers
are now sold to have 100,000 men under
arms including Boer regulars, 35,006;
Free State troops, 35,000; American*,
4000; Germans, 600; Irish, toooj French,
Swiss and Italians, 200.   Gen.  Sir Red-
vers Duller is expected to arrive nt the
camp enrly next week nnd the indications nre Hint some troops have already
arrived at the front nml will be in the
fighting. Their arrivnl as yet has nol
been announced. There are probabilities
therefor that reinforcements are now
moving up, This is calculated to hasten
Commandant General Toubert's attack
ou Ladysuiith, and news of a big battle
ts daily expected, About half a complete army corps is uow afloat and a lull
bas occurred in dispatching the remainder of Gen. Buller's forces, owing to some
difficulty in obtaining transports. Thc
mobilization and embarkation of 21,000
men, however, have proceeded with the
utmost smoothness and completeness,
exciting admiration from tbe severest
critics of tne war.
A large British squadron lm. sailed
soulh from Q-ieenstowu to join the armored squadron.
The French fleet linn received instructions to watch the movements of the
British Mediterranean squadrons.
Rumors of serious foreign complications have hurried ou British naval preparations.
It Won't Work.
New York, Oct, 24 —Although there
hnve beeu assertions nud protests to the
contrary, it cun Hardly be denied that
Great Britain bas the morn! support of a
majority of Americans in her war against
the Boers, The attempt to get up a
mass-meeting in New York to protest
against the "criminal aggression" of
Great Britain was a distinct failure, and
Bourke Cockran, who made the principal speech, has since been made the target for all sorts of attacks.
Americans enlisting for Eoflind.
New York, Oct. 34,—Eight hundred
aud forty-two Americana have enlisted
iu a private regiment to help the Great
Britain forces to fight the war in the
Transvaal. Applications for enlistment
have come from almost every state in
the Union, and a number of Roosevelt's
Rough Riders have already joined.
They propose to equip themselves and
pny their own expenses throughout the
war.	
A Trip to Venus.
A Trip to Venus is a poem by Hobart
W. Parrott. just issued from Tbe Herald
press. It is Mr. Parrott's first venture
in the publication of his literary efforts,
and A Trip to Venus is unique in creation aud pleasing in treatment. The
basic idea is original in the extreme degree, since it uses electricity for tbe formation of a line of transportation from
the earth to Venus. Natural laws are
observed in the construction of this line,
and by the aid of this marvelous current
flying machines pass safely from planet
to planet. Iu addition to transpn-tation
of natural objects, thought Is also transmitted by the aid of non-materially conducted electric currents. The story is
ingenious aud attractive, displaying
thought and core, and will prove interesting to the young as well as to tbe
matured minds.
The hook Is on sale at R. E. Beattie's
aud Mrs. Marshalnay's, at 25 cents.
Additional Locsl.
The Forrest house opened this week,
but it will take a few days to get everything in shape. Mr. Forrest will have
one of the finest hotel buildings iu East
Kootenny when it Is completed.
In all probability a station will be
built at Warduer before a great while,
The report that the C. P. R. has acquired fall control ol the townsite is
without foundation, as Geo. Gurd still
holds his Interests.
C. B. Compston and mother arrived in
the city Tuesday. Mr. Cotnpslou will
return to Medicine Hat to assume tbe
position of trainmaster. His mother
will follow as soon as she gets their
household goods packed.
J. R. Costigan haa returned from Nelson where he appeared In a number of
important cases in tbe regular assizes,
Mr. Costigan's services as solicitor are
greatly in den and in the Koot.-nsys
siuce he located iu Cranbrook.
Robert Ross, who has been confined
at the hospital by fever for two weeks,
has recovered sufficiently to return to
ihe home of his brother-in law, W. F.
Tate. He speaks in the highest praise
of his treatment by the sisters.
Postmaster Beattie lias added another
row of Yale boxes to tlie postoffice.
Cranbrook Is fortutiate iu having a postmaster liberal enough to invest the
money necessary to afford every convenience to the patrons of the office.
Angus Morrison has returned from a
trip through the Boundary country, He
saw a number of former East Kootenay
residents. Among them was W. T.
Knnke, who is building a new hotel nt
Phoenix, one of the coming towns ou the
Robsou road,
MINES OF THE DISTRICT
A Deal for (be Copper Crown Has ton
Put Through.
WORK ON THE PAY ROLL GOING
Good Reports From the Skookum
chuck—Other     Mining-
News of Interest.
The Pay Roll.
Work is progressing in a most satisfactory manner at the Pay Roll. The
buildings are nearly completed, and
within n few days everything will be
ready for the winter's work. Eugene
Croteau, of Yuilr, is superintendent, and
lie has eleven men at work now. nnd the
force will be increased as soon as the
men can work to advantage. The government will build a rond to the railroad
and next week the property will be surveyed preparalory to securing a crown
grant. Pay Roll slock is in high favor
these days, and last Friday 20.000
shares were sold at ten cents, which is
au indication ol the confidence of the
people in a property thut is well known
iu this district, J. E. Saucier, managing
director, has been looking over the work
and is well satisfied witb the progress
made.
Another Big Deal.
J,  E.  Saucier,   acting   for 'Rossland,
London   and  Paris capitalists,  has secured control of the Copper Crown and
Excess mineral claims, situated about
oue mile from the tnilroad in Isudor
canyon, and about six miles from Crnnbrook. Mr. Saucier is feeling pretty
good over this achievement and he has
good reason for it. The Copper Crown
is one of the best copper prospect: in
the district, nud has beeu owned by R.
0, Jennings, J, A Harvey and Robert
McKcenmnn. A shaft has been sunk on
the property to the depth of sixty-five
feet, aud lhe assays iu copper have increased iu value as depth has been secured. The deal was itinde on tbe basis
of cash payments and slock, and Mr.
Saucier is to be congratulated on his
good fortune in securing such a promising property. The claims will be worked
by the Theo Gold-Copper Mining company, limited, and active operations will
he inaugurated without delay.
This deal means a great deal to Cranbrook, as there is uo doubt but that
within a very short time the Copper
Crown aud Excess will be placed on the
list of shipping mines tributary to that
place. Their favorable location near the
railroad, places them in a position to
become valuable producers, as tbe ore
can be mined aud transported at a minimum cost.       	
On Ibe Upper Skookumcbuck.
Messrs. Robinson, Main, Martin and
Doyle have returned from the headwaters of the Skookumcbuck where tbey
staked out twelve claiais this summer.
They speak very highly of the outlook
iu that country, and predict tbat the
lay is coining when that territory will
rank with the best mineral districts iD
the Kootenays. They brought out with
them some fine looking specimens of
ore, that is good material evidence of
what they claim. The ore is from the
surface nnd shows a heavy irou cappiuf,
richly mineralized. The ledges are of
great width, and from tbe work done
Mr, Robinson isjof the opinion that tbe
formation is similar to that in the Rosslaud district.
An Unbiased Opinion ol Canada.
The former postmaster general of the
United States, Hon. Thos. I.. James,
who has been interviewed in England
by a representative of thc London Financial Times, spoke the following of Canada: "You don't know what you have
got In Canada, South Africa is in tiie
shade beside it. There is more mineral
and agricultural wealth in it, more luni
ber aud other resources than you can
Iream of. They have any ntnount of
gold deposits in British Columbia, and
in thc country towr.rd Klondike, nud
there are more opportunities lor a young
man in that province and in the north
wesl portion of the United Slates, than
in any oiher part ofthe world."
Electricity Freely Used.
The Engineering Magazine snys that
Cripple Creek, Col , is perhaps the only
gold mining district where n miner cau
go to his work in an electric street Car,
descend the mine in an electric hoist,
keep his mine dry by an electric pump,
do his work by an electric light, run
drills operated by electric air compressors (possibly, in lime, to be succeeded
by direct electiict drills), and fire his
shots by electricity from a switch-board
remote from the point of explosion.
Mining Notes.
Two carloads of mining machinery
were shipped from Jenckes Machine
compauy a few days ngo to the War
Eagle mine ul Greenwood.
The St. Marys Gold Mining & Milling
company have about completed arrange-
ments lo commence work on the Carrie
Lee group on St. Marys prairie.
Word comes from the Sand Creek district Hint .work is being pushed on the
Empire property, nud that everything is
looking very favorable.
Tbe supplying of miner-.' nnd prospec*
tors' supplies is n business which Is in-
Tensing every day in Cranbraok. If
you dou't believe it, call on any of the
Cranbrook merchants.
Mr. Pumpelly came down from S*.
Marys prairie Tuesday, lie says that
Mr. Mclvor, the Dominion geologist
who recently visited thnt section, had
many words of commendation for tbe
mineral outlook of the numerous properties in that section.
J C, Drewry, manager of the Laie
Shore mine and  other properties for the
Canadian Gold Fields syndicate, was in
town Tuesday. Mr. Drewry is the embodiment of energy, aud oue mine mai -
tger of whom his men ail speak in the
highest terms. He reports everything
progressing in a most satisfactory manner at Moyie.
Dave Newell, who is largely interested
ou the North Slar hill with W. VauArs*
lalen and Al Jones, was in lown this
a-tk Mr Newell says that they have
•uuk a 35-foot shaft on the Greenhorn
fraction, which adjoins tbeO K.   They
,ot tbe lead, and are feeling very good
ner the outlook. The claim has been
surveyed and a crov n grunt will be applied for. A shaft has also been sunk ou
the Alllolh 15 feet, and it will be surveyed. They have nlso done tbe assess-
nent ou the Windfall  aud   had   it  sur-
veyed.
Tucket! s Brituu and a Brick.
G. ti. Tockett & Sons, of Hamilton,
of T. & B. tobacco lame, have offered
iuy of their employes who go with tbe
Canadian contingent to South Africa,
fifty ceuts a dny. a thousand dollar in-
mrancc policy and their old positions
back when lhey return.

Fernie Free Press: Between 3 and 4
o'clock this ' Friday) afternoon a young
man named Archie Bills was instantly
killed by falling on the large circular
saw at the Fernie Saw Sl Flailing Mill
works.
The saw had just run through a log
which was bigger thnn tbe saw would
cut. The carriage uad been run back
aud the poor lad who so suddenly lost
his life, together wiih two others, started
to chop off the piece on lhe top of the
log left by the saw. The deceased
stepped in belweeu the end of the log
and Ihe MW, a space of about four feet;
he put his right foot on a small iron roller, and at the first or second swing of
the axe his foot slipped from the roller
and he fell back onto tbe big circular
saw, and in an instant all was over. Tlie
saw grazed the upper (.art of thc hip
bone, nnd then ran upward nnd across
toward the top of the left shoulder, going entirely through the back. It hap-
pened so quick, all was over before any
of his comrades realized what had ba|-
p -ned. The body was thrown clear
over lhe saw. No word or cry of any
kind was uttered, and when the poor
lad's mates run lo him he was dead.
Bound for South Africa.
On Tuesday's east bound train were a
contingent of volunteer soldiers from
Rossland nud Nelson under Captain
Hodgkins of thc Nelson Rifles. They
were on their way to Toronto where
lhey will be utuste e 1 in with the Canadian contingent and ship direct for the
battle fields of South Africa. Before the
train left, under the guidance of J. R.
Costigan, a lnrge number of Cranbrook
peogle gave three hearty cheers for the
brave boys who go to fight for the f-;lory
ofthe empire.

populatlon of the United States often
yeum or Upward into four general
classes, First there ure the married,
who number 18,10 per cent. Then there
are the widows, who number 10.10 per
cent. Third is the class of the "single
and unknown;*' these number 60,84 pet-
cent. Finally there arc the divorced,
who constitute nine-lent ha of one per
rent, of the female population of ten
yeurs of age or over hi the United Stall's,
nnd they are distributed throughout
various occupations, which the atatla-
ileal experts have endeavored to state
with undevtatlng exactness. Of the
totul number of divorced women employed, it seems thnt ,21 per cent, ara
bookbinders, .03 nre ahoemnkcrB ami
,00 are corset makers. A mueh smaller
proportion, .42, tire saleswomen, while
fiP are telegruph und telephone operators. Stenographers and typewriters
make up .(17 per cent., and .68 are mill
lands.
The official statisticians at Washing*
on look neither to the right nor to the
.eft in their tabulation ami it need he
no surprise, therefore, to know thut
1.23 of the divorced women of the United
States who have any business occupation are merchants, %04 are carpet nmk-
ers, und .40 are hut nml cap makers.
Milliners conic under a separate division, their percentage of divorced
women being 1.32, Of seamstresses
there are 1,35, and of clerks and copyists
,61. Moreover, .29 ure boxnmkera, ,0fl
printers, ,31 cigarette nnd tobacco makers, Ail in the confectionery bunliiCHS,
1,43 dressmakers, .40 paper mill operators, and ,15 in silk mills.
The professions have a considerable
number of divorced women, 1.24 being
music teachers nnd 1.18 teachers of art.
Then* are 3.33 per cent, described as
hotel, restaurant nnd saloon keepers
and barkeepers and a somewhat larger
proportion as boarding or lodging house
keepers; 1,02 iih laundresses; 1.80 ns
nurses, und .51 as agricultural laborers.
In one particular, however, lhe report
of the commissioner of labor seems to
be pretty nearly exaot, for 3.20 of the
total number of divorced women are
put down an agents and It Is a mat ter of
very general observation that divorced
women moke excellent agents where
persistence and volubility art* required.

TO   PREPARE   SAVORY   HAM.
It May He Moiled In Cider ur Halted In
Paste.
Cider will Boon be very cheap, and a
gallon can be put to no better use than
to help in producing the perfection of
boiled humK. Choose « medium-sized
ham, wuah, .scrub, weigh and soak in
plenty of cold water for 24 hours; wipe
dry anil simmer in thc cider, allowing
15 minutes to each pound. Allow it
to stand over night to cool in the liquor,
then peel oil the skin and wipe with a
soft cloth until the surface is dry from
moist fut. Garnish with aspic jelly und
boiled vegetables cut in fancy shapes.
A very savory meat jelly may be quickly made tor garnishing when nspic is
not at hand, by making clear bouillon
from chopped beef or beef paste, color
with sliced onions fried very brown in
butter, and pour a pint boiling hot on
quarter of a box of gelatine soaked for
a few minutes in u, little, cohrbroth.
Suit and pepper to taste, strain and put
away to set.
A hnttn baked in a paste is another
delicious change, and once this recipe,
though slightly extra trouble, is tried
the ordinary one will be laid nside. Prepare the ham us directed above, mix
up about a quart of Hour with enough
cold water to make a stiff paste. Cover
the Hesh side with this. I'm inn moderate oven; while the crust Is still soft
begin to baste with sherry wine; do
lliia every ten minutes* until u (urge
cupful Ib used; after thut there will be
sufficient gravy in the pan to continue.
Ten mnutes more must he nllowed fur
each pound in cooking, us thc paste protects tho ment. When done the eniM
and skin nre to be peeled olf, the ham
sprinkled with crisp bread cruinl>n nnd
sent to table garnished as above. Tin*
basting is troubjesome, but with cooler
autumn days -diould not be minded.
Ilarbeciicd hami may be served by help
of a little sherry. Put a large slice of
the baked ham in the hot frying pin;
season with pepper, wilt und mixed
musturd; add u teaspoon of vinegar; it
will brown quickly on nne side) keep
the pan on n hot place; turn thc slice,
sprinkle in a very little sugar and a
wineglass of sherry* fining to the boil
nnd serve.   The sugar is not noticeable,

The forest of Dartmoor is surrounded on every aide by wide Stretches ot
moorland that belong to the several
contiguous parishes, und every householder in. each of these parishes claims
rights on the common of hte parish,
over which, moreover, the manorial
lord asserts paramount authority, an I
enforces it when he can. The diwhy

Joe waa not a lazy man, yet his exaggerated prudence led to inueh the
samo results iih inertness— he let slip
opportunities that could never recur,
ami whieh went to benefit men less
uble, hoilOSt and industrious than himself.
It sometimes happens  that   plums

stand gaping at the clouds. All thej
then huve to do la to close their mouths
on thc plums and to make ilu- most of
them.
Such a plum dropped into the mouth
ot Josiak ono Christmas bive. He did,
indeed, snap his jaws on it—but that
was all.
Ile was working on thc common,
(uiiting up granite blocks, wherewith
lo construcl a "new take" wall, it is
the opinion of every householder in a
f-iiriish that, has commons thut he hus
:l right, to ns much open ground as he
can iuclosc-s'.ibjcct, if enforced, tn a
payment to lhe lord of the manor, and
tlu-iuocforth his own In perpetuity,
Whilst thus engaged Joe. came on u
"barrow" or cairn of small stones. Ilu
cleared awny these as too small tu
servo his purpose, nnd discovered be-
heath them a granite slab. This he
levered aside, without much difficulty,
and to his surprise discovered a stone
cist or coffin constructed or rude blocks.
He crept in, and wub still further surprised whon he found within a pot containing charred bones and ashes, and
near it a cup of yellow metal, nnd some
rings and hoops, some weighing six,
others ton nnd fifteen ounces apiece.
He hastily scrambled forth, and ns
the setting sun gleamed out, he examined his Hnd by it*-* light, ilu rubbed
the cup and lhe rings on his sleeve, and
"Uy ginger!" said he, "if it lun't all
.solid gold, Come! I'm In luck's way,
This shall stand over against a rainy
dny."
"I wasn't called young Rainy Day
for nothing," said he. "I'll put it all
back again where. I found it, uud there
It sluill remain till 1 have rail occasion
to lift it."
So the young man replaced Uie covering block, then heaped the small
stones and earth over it und disguised
the fact that the, place had been disturbed.
He returned home vary satisfied with
himself and with his prospects. Now
he eould look forward without blinking
to the Inevitable rainy dny, At present he had health, strength und youth,
and with these he could earn his livelihood. "Hut," as Jos put It, "I can't
reckon on these husl.i*ag. I knows several young chaps as has had colds settled on their chestesscs, and have died
of a decline. And Tom KndJeott, lu*
dislocated his hip, uud now can't hobble up ou to the moor after granite
no more; and it* Un old nge and iU-
erepitudc—there's no denying it, every
day and hour aud minute brings me
nigher to it."
Accordingly, Jos went on breaking
up stone and Inclosing, and Instlnctlvo-
l.v lie. extended his "new take" wall in
the direction of the »*uini nnd stoma
chest that cont'lined his trnituirc.

One day when lhey met on Uk* moot'

they retired together under shelter of
a rock to cut together their lunch of

weather wus, ,f os put his arm round Polly, nnd, having an overcoat, he threw

The ensuing night was one of son;

lied. He could not sleep. He sallied
very early from his house ond went to

the stone-*, aeaived the covering slab
uside. gu tinio tte cheat and brought out
the gold ring* aud cup. He furbished
ihem up, and they apaxkted iu the morning sun.
When all were ranged before him, he
shook his head, "It would be madness
to risk it," snid he. "if I married Polly,
women be them corkscrews, she'd have
the whole story out of mc, und they be
that chatterboxes, lhey can't help talking, nml she'd blah about It tnevery one
in the placo. Then I'd hine tlu* crown,

Coiniiiiiners down on ine fitftdcmntiding

Then in went nil the treasure again
into the coffin that hud contained und
preserved ll for 4,000 years.
"I know whut I'll do," said Job, "I'll
build iny iiew-tiikc wall right over this
old grnve, nud (lieu nu one can get at
Ilu* treasure without pulling down the
wuii," „ ^ar--:~-:.:c?:; v^*-*-
Llltle did Jos Biwpcot tlmt he wns
being watched, and that his every word
wan overheard by Polly herself, who
wns behind the rock hard by, where she
luul picked up Hint chips nnd flakes.
Slowly, painfully, Jos Day worked at
his wall. Hi* succeeded in carrying it
over Ihe cairn, and thus he secured hla
treasure from boing disturbed, and thus
was It mnde fust itguinst the rainy
dny, ^tf'i'-'^ia^2^r>'f'''^T-r;U«me**^'
in the course of bho next three months
he hud completed the Inelosuro, and
had taken from thc common a tract of
good hind of tlve-and-twenty acres In
extent.
About this* time Mary Agget.t's mother
died. Jos pitied her greatly, the cottage
wns so lonely for thc girl. His heart
grew sort, when he saw her In hloek.
"Bless me!" said he. "it I lived In that
cottage it would save me half of my
-Jouirnoy every day, but 1 won't risk It."
Shortly afler this a great surprise
came to hlm, One morning hu found in
his "new take" a flock of sheep al!
branded M. A.
"Gracious bless us!" exclaimed Jos.
"How ever came the sheep there? I'll
run ask Polly, she mny know. She must
hu' seen some one drive 'cm this way."
He went to the cottage and spoke in
heat: "Mary, some owdactous radicals
have been turning sheep into my new
take during the. night. They are
marked M. A."
"They are mine, Jos."
"Yours, Polly?"
"Yes. It was very kind and considerate of you, Jos. to inclose so many
acres for inc. I thank you with all my
heart."
"Inclose for you! It Is my new
takel"
"There Is some misunderstanding,"
answered the girl. "Thc new take is
certainly mine. I have been to thc
lord of the manor and hnve bought it—
2$ acres at so mueh gold per ncre. I
have thc papers nil drawn oat."
"Yours! Where did you get the
money?"
That, was a question Mary did not answer.
After much consideration Jos said,
falteringly: "This is a pretty go! How
am I to l*-e paid for the walling?"
"I'm sure 1 can't think, Jos."
"Hut it has engaged me off nnd on for
18 months. Fifty pounds wouldn't repay my labor.   1 ciui'tnlTord—"
"1 really am sorry for you."
"There is ouly one way out of It," exclaimed Jos, "that I can see; und that
is by changing the brand on the sheep
from A'to I), and by lumping together
my wall and your land."
"Well, I'm not i>urticulur," answered
Mary, and so Lhe matter was settled.
They were married, and Jos found
that ho had secured not only a very capital bit of lund, but with It a very
thrifty, witty and wise wife.
At tho close of the Ilrst twelvemonth
thero ware three in thc house in the
place of two. At the end of the second
yeur the number hud mounted to five,
for the second addition to the family
consisted in twins.
But the conscience of Jos was un-
Kisy. Something stood between biroanfl
Polly. He had a secret from her, nnd
that is ever a barrier to cunntibial unity.
Cha-Utmns was approaching. Jos resolved (o mako a clean breast of it and
tell Maty everything.
Christmas duy arrived and Joe put on
his Sunday coal und flowered his "wes-
kit," look his lever nnd went forth.
"Polly," suid he, "come along. I've u
surprise l'oryou." Hedelibenitc.lythrew
down a portion of his ncw-takc wail,
discovered thc lid uf the stone chest,
levered It nside. and then jumped Into
tlu* box, Next moment he rose out of
it blank with despair, trembling with
disappointment.   His   treasure   was
gone.
Hy tho side of the calm and overthrown wull slood his wife watching
llim, w it li il smite on her cherry lips nnd
a twinkle In her bright eyes. A toddling
child clung tu her skirts as she held onu
of tho twins in each arm.
"Poll!" he gasped. "I'm a ruined mnn.
I've last everything, I've been robbed."
Then she. laughed und when she
laughed tho child holding her skirt
laughed nlso and the babes in her arms
chuckled nnd crowed.
"No, Jos Rainy Day," she. said, "you
have lost nothing, you have gained
much. I found your treasure, and I disposed of it to the antiquarian gentleman who buys the arrow heads. With
the money I bought tho land, the sheep,
the cows—and yon."
Then Jos scrambled out of the grave,
and fell a laughing, and he laughed till
the tears run down his cheeks.
"By ginger!" said he; "woman's wit
outweighs man's' wisdom. My true
trcasurc-t.rovc is here"—he chipped hla!
wife on the shoulder—"and It's one

A PATHETIC LETTER.
She writes:—"I had for a long time been
thinking of trying the Samaria Prescription treatment] on my husband for his
drinking habits, Imt I wus ufraid hewould
discover thatl was giving him medioine.
ana the thought unnerved me. I hesitated
for nearly a, week, hut one day when he
camo home vory muoh Intoxicated and
hte week'ssalary nearly all spent, Ithrew
off all rein- and determined to make an
effort to Bavo our homo from the ruin I
saw coming, at all hazards. 1 Bent for
your Samaria Prescription nnd put it in
his coffee as directed next morning and
watched and prayed for tbo result. At
noon I gave hlin mure and also at supper.
He never suspected a thing, and I then
boldly kept right on giving it regularly.ai
I had discovered something that set every
herve in my body tingling with hopo and
happiness, atul I could seo a bright future
spread out b iforo lue-a peaceful, happy
homo, a slmro in the good things of life.an
attentive, loving husband, comforts, and
everything else dear to a woman's heart,
for my husband had told me that whiskey
was vile stuff and bo was taking a dislike
to It. It was only too true, fur before X
had Riven him the full courso he had stopped drinking ultogoi Itfir, but I kept giving
the mudclno till it was gone, anil then sent
for another lot io havo on hand if ho should
relapse, as ho Imd dono from his promises
before. He never has, and I am writing
you this letter to tell you how thankful I
am. I honestly believe it will cure the
worst oases."

A government olUclnl tells this story ot
Kuin A lie rl nil's experience with his
yacht:
Mr. Atlerton built himself it line coun*
try house ou the shores ot Lake Geneva,
Wisconsin. It wns iih line ns anybody's
lioine in thut locality. Wheu be had the
bouse about finished, some one told him
Hint he would hnve to have u yacht, not
one of the modern steam yachts such us
you sec down east, hut a sitillug bout,
lie ordered one uutdo uud was up nt the
bike wheu it reached there. He wns
very proud nf his yacht, and although he
Iiml never been nu oue before concluded
thnt he would like to tuke u sail right
awny. In his younger dnys he hnd none
lishhlg n time ur two in n canoe mul in
thut way hnd loomed the rudiments of
steering a boat, so he concluded to take
thc helm. Looking over the group of
lomii'ei'.s that had gathered about, he
shouted out the Inquiry!
"Who among us has been to sen?"
"1 has, salt," said u lull, ruwboned colored man, stepping forward.
''You'll do for one," said Mr. Atlerton.
"Now, who else bus been to sen?"
Nobody answering! he turned to the
colored mun uml ordered him to jump
aboard, saying; "We two will be enough,
We can handle her."
The sails woro set, the bout released
from its moorings, nud a start wns mnde,
Tho wind wus directly offshore und
blowing brisk. Mr. A Her ton enjoyed the
sensntlou hugely and congratulated himself nu the investment he hnd mude. Ho
wus Milling directly beforo the wind, and
be boomed nhcad in splendid style, liy
and by thoy approached the opposite
shore, und, nftor making several frantic
efforts to change the course of tlie boat,
Mr. Allorton called out to the colored
man "who hnd been to sea:"
"Here, you! How ure we going to
turn this bbimed Ihing around? I can't
do anything with her,"
"'Deed, mister, I don't kuow whnt to
do. I don't know nothing 'bout thom
thore sails."
The two men pulled nnd hauled and
perspired, but to uo effect, nud the yacht
went ou tbe rooks with u smash. As
Mr. Atlerton waded ashore be turned
angrily to the colored mnn, who drugged
himself drippingly ufter hlm, und said:
"I thought you told me you had beeu
to sea?"
"I was, Bah) eight years."

Hla   I'miMm'titm.
"I don't want to think ill of my follow
men," suld thc barber the other afternoon, "but sometime:, 1 am forced to be-
lie»*# thut ii tjondiy share of them nru
prone to prevarication.   I mean by that
they nre given to avoiding the truth
when the truth would nuswer just ns
well."
■'Exactly,"   assented   the   Baunterer.
"Suppose you give me n bill of particulars."
"Well," continued tbe man of the ra-
cor, "I was thinking of a hulf doxen ot* so
customers 1 have asked during the course
of tbe dny Whether or not tbey didn't
want their hair cut. Every man of 'em,
instead of coming out with it plain 'no'
for nn nuswer, hemmed nud hawed ntul
snid something about being in a hurry or
uot having time or a -similar excuse. To-
tiny wns no exception either. It's that
way every day. Of Course the barber is
on, nml the way some of the customers
get red in the face makes me think thoy
nro giving bim a ghost story. Why, I've
bad a man tell mo lie hadn't time to get
his tinir cut nml then climb out of my
chair after I bad Snlshcd shaving him uud
itand around und talk for half nu hour
or twice as long us it takes to trim up a
head of hair. It's often thc same when
we suggest a shampoo. Now, just because u barber asks a customer if be
doesn't want something mote tlum u
■have when onco he is in thc clinir is uo
reason why the customer should feel
Obliged to spend more than he ut flrst iu-
tended to, nor is it any reason why thc
customer should prevaricate nbout being
rUshed tO dentil iu order to get out of it.

Tbe effect of railing is t.) crush down

weeds, which, if allowed to grow unchecked, would soon choke the more

Another advantage uf rolling Is that it

evinced an extraordinary fortitude under
tlm excruciating pain which accompanied
the dUt-nse, nnd at, times he related his

suid that lurid lights appeared before his

approached death his nanny increased,
and hu said that mo.it of thu pain was
