Last Sunday Afternoon, about five
o'clock, Archie Mclnnes, eldest son of
Mr, mid Mrs. M. Melnnis, met wilh h
sudden and horrilile death while riding
his horse after his cows. Iu company
with Jimmie Kennedy, he had goue to
the gate opening into tlie Haker pasture,
just at the nortli end of town. Looking
across the llut, he saw one of his cows a
short distunce away, and turning his
horse in that direction, started at a
rapid gait, riding fearlessly, as was characteristic of tlie boy. He had gone only
a short distance when his horse struck a
bnneh of stones that cropped out of the
ground in the middle of the road, stumbled, partially gathered again, and then
fell, throwing Archie over his head.
Such was the force of speed that the boy
and horse were carried fully thirty feet
from where the horse struck the atones,
and lhe horse plunged on over, falling
ou llie boy. The animal's hoofs struck
him ou the forehead, fracturing the
skull, and lhe weight of the horse
crushed his body, breaking mnny of the
bones. It was all over in a few seconds
time, and when the horse gained his
feet and dashed away, Archie remained
prostrate and quiet, his life blood coloring the ground where he lay. Young
Kennedy, seeing that his playmate must
be hurt, jumped from his horse and
hurried to him. He spoke, but there
was no answer. lie gently shook him
hy the shoulder, but there was no sign
of life. Then, filled with fear and
horror, he mounted his horse and hurried back to town to spread the alarm.
Dr. J. H. King was notified, but when
br arrived at the scene of the accident
the poor boy was past all human aid.
Tbe cruel blow of the horse's hoofs bad
done its deadly work and he had
breathed his last, dying unconscious and
without suffering.
The body was lifted by tender bands
and conveyed to the undertaking rooms
ofthe Britisb Columbia Furniture company, while the news spread that was
such a shock to the town. The lather
and mother were in Fernie and a telegram was sent notifying them of the accident, and they left tbat evening on a
freight, arriving home about i o'clock.
It wns a sad home-coming, and tbe full
extent of the accident had been kept
from Mrs. Mclnnes until she reached
home. The blow was a terrible one to
bear and both parents were heartbroken.
Monday it was decided to take the remains to their old home in Calgary for
interment, where Archie was born and
raised. That evening an infoimal meeting of the Odd Fellows was held, and
committees appointed to take charge of
lhe remains in the morning aud convey
thein to the train. At 0:30 on Tuesday
momtng between thirty aud forty Odd
Fellows formed in double line at the
ball and marched to the residence aud
then escorted the remains to the depot.
with Messrs. Fink, Richardson, Rankin
and Horde as pall bearers.
The sudden death of Archie Mclnnes
was a shock to all. The boy was bright
and pleasant natured, full of life and
happiness, and while riding horses
kuew not ihe meaning of fear. Although
only 11 years old lie was accustomed to
ride for miles over the country, driving
cattle -mil attending lo matters for bis
father. Wilh his playmates he wns a
general favorite, and lhey showed their
love and esteem by gathering a profusion of spring blossoms from the hillsides am) fashioning garlands of beauty
lo place on the casket. It wns a sad ac-
cideul, and tbe sympathy of the whole
community went out to the parents in
their misfortune.

seen, but it is understood thev will agree
to anything reasonable, nnd that nu amicable agreement will be arrived at between employer and employees.
Buttling  Works, Saw Mill and Sash
and Door Factory.
And  They arc Getting  thc Patronage of thc District Which
They Richly Deserve.
Cruubrook is the geographical and
commercial center of South Ivasl Koole-
1111.', and i.s ibe natural center of any
manufacturing enterprise for this district.
This fact is patent lo anyone, who has
any knowledge ol the district, and Cranbrook profits hy these conditions. At
the present time, although only a little
more than n year old, Cranbrook hus
three institutions that she muy well feel
proud of. They are tbe Kast Kootenny
[fouling company, the Cruubrook Lumber compauy and T. W. Leask's sash
and door factory.
Hast Koulenay llotlllng Co,
The new bottling worfca of Clapp &
Murphy, which are now under headway,
are a credit to the town and the district
nf Kast Kootenay, These genlleineu iu
a quiet wny, enme to Cranbrook, and
having confidence iu the future of llie
district, proceeded at onee to put up a
building and prepare for llio iiiaiiufuet
ure of all kinds of aerated waters. Their
machinery was received last week, and
no time was lost in getting it iu place.
It is all new, cf the latest patterns, uml
the freight nud duty alone cost hundreds of dollars. I,asl Monday tbey bad
some of their product ready, and The
Herald has taken the pains to secure
opinions on the quality, Iu every case
the answer wns lhe same, that their soda
nnd soft drinks were equal to any manufactured in the country, Atul there is
110 reason why il should not be. They
have the most complete plant between
Winnipeg and Vancouver, nnd men who
thoroughly understand the manufacture
of the product, Whnt is more, their
prices nre the same as those quoted iu
Winnipeg or Nelson, and thus tbe people of Fast Kootenay can save big sums
iu freight. Thc institution is deserving
ofthe trade of lhe district and The Herald believes it will get it.
Tbe New Saw Mill Plant.
The new mill of lhe Cranbrook Lumber company will soon be ready for operation. The machinery has been installed and the building is nearly completed. Wheu done the mill will be one
of tlie best, most complete and modern
plants in British Columbia, and will have
a capacity of 30,000 feel in ten hours. A.
Leitch, manager ot the company, kindly
showed a Herald representative over
the building one dny this week, aud explained the plans for carrying on tbe
work. The building, which is a solid,
well built structure, is ino. feet long, and
30 feet wide, with engine room adjoining. There is a basement 10 feet high,
and sawing floor y feet high. There are
two steel boilers made by Leonard
& Sous, London, Out., aud 73 horse
power engine. The machinery consists
of a 56 inch circular saw, a 30-foot Wa-
terous carriage, a 4 saw gang edger, 30-
foot live rolls, a swing cut-off saw, one
set of trimmers and one McGregory St
Gourlay plauer and matcher. Everything is new, and the arrangement of
tbe machinery is calculated to save time
and labor to the fullest extent, A switch
line will he run from tbe main line of
theC. P. R, through the center of the
lumber yard and ending right at the
mill, so that all lumber can be loaded
direct from the null or tbe piles along
the track.
This company now has employed
about fifty men, nnd is an institution
that is a credit and a benefit to Cranbrook and South Kast Kootenay,and The
Herald is pleased lo know that it is
extending its field east nud west, and
shipping many car loads of lumber to
meet the demands made upou it.
Sash snd Door Factory.
The sash nnd door factory operated by
T. W. Leask, is another one ofCraii-
brook's Industries ihut is a benefit to the
whole district. It has a good plant and
is turning out the best of work, and is
the only institution of lhe kind in South
Kast Kootenny, and is deserving of the
patronage of the people. Mr. Leask is
manufacturing doors, windows, frames,
mouldings, house finishings of all kinds,
aud is giving tbe besi of satisfaction
bulb us to prices and quality. With the
growth uf this district Ibis business will
grow. It merits a preference, but Mr.
Leask does not ask it. He simp!) offers
to sell as cheap or cheaper than yon can
ship goods in hete.

A Hotly Contested Football Game
With the Fort Steele Team.
Cranbrook, 3; Port Steele r; this was
the tale after one and one-half hours interesting    play.     Tbe game   was  very
uimly contested and at times very
brilliant play was indulged in, still lack
of practice and training w s visible in
tbe play of both learns.
Steele's bnck division saved tbem time
and again, and although tbeir forwards
played good bull, individually, they
lacked tbe combination that characterized lhe rushes of Cranbrook's line; indeed it is to the brilliant play of her for-
wards and tlieexreileut judgment shown
by Geo. Leitch at full-back, tbat Cranbrook owes the victory.
For the visitors, McDermott, Watt,
Wallinger, Wilson and Beale showed up
splendidly. For the home team the
whole forward line was good, and Archie
Leitch's length of limb showed up to
good advantage; of the backs, Geo.
Leitch and Edwards were conspicuous.
The half-hack line needs lots of fixing.
The match started at 6:30,   in  a  limiting rain, which stopped shortly, and a ,
strong   southerly     breeze,   Cranbrook   ailtl fuu,for everybody,

Front the kick-off in the second half
the play was very hot, and Steele, after
30 minutes bard work, goi in a hot shot,
which penetrated our defenses, and
scored; this made the game a lie. Cranbrook from the slart now kepi the play
in her opponent's territory, and after u
minutes hot work succeeded in scoring.

After tbe game the Fort Steele boys

Cosmopolitan hotel and had a mast enjoyable time.
Both sides took off Iheir bats to Medhurst.

Flizsimmona Is Knocked Out  la  tbe   Eleventh Round.
Last Friday thc big fistic battle be'
tweeii Filzsimmons and Jeffries was
pulled off at Coney Island. Intense interest was manifested in tbe result all
over tbe country, and nearly 9000 people
witnessed the contest. Botb men were
iu prime condition aud both coufident
of victory. The betting was going two
to one on the champion nearly up to the
opening of the fight and iu consequence
the backets of the big Califoruian were
rolling in wealth after the fight was
over. There were just eleven rounds,
aud after the second, when Filz went
down under a terrible straight on tbe
jaw, Jeffries had the best of it, and
gained rapidly to the tenth, when the
fight was virtually over. The eleventh
luutid consisted of a few finishing
touches by Jeffries. It was a pretty
bailie, devoid of fouls, and a contest in
which the best man won.
Well Advertised In England.
A visitor to Cranbrook who was recently iu England, reports that while
there he noticed that this province was
well advertised. At the various offices
of the Allan line and other steamship
lines, as well as at the agencies of the C.
P. R , pamphlets, circulars and maps
relative to British Columbia to no end
could be obtained, and could frequently
be seen prominently exposed in windows, especially in London and Liverpool. A very good impression exists
there iii regard to the wonderful resources aud magnificent future of Ibis
province. Why should it not he so?
Klondike is too risky, Australia has been
overdone, South Africa has its Boer difficulty, and British Columbia seems to
be Ihe only mineral bearing country
which has uo serious drawback.
The New Train Service.
It is now expected that thc new train
service will go into effect next Sunday,
and that the fust passenger train will
arrive it Cranbrook from the east that
afternoon at 5135.

is gone forever. The cars of the great
Canadian, Pacific railroad rattle along
theBe shores today, and wake the echoes
that have been dormant for countless
ages. The slumber of ages was broken
here six years ago by the advent of three
hunter?, who camped early in June in a
shady spot where Moyie now nestles by
the lake. A mysterious fate grouped
these men beside the lonely wuleisof
Moyie. One was a priest, a Corsican by
birth, a man whose early life was spent
beside the blue waves ofthe Mediterranean and whose early ideals were moulded
in the shadows of St. Peter's and ofthe
Coliseum, Amid the ruins of the past he
had dreams uf going forth among the Indians ol North America und of preaching
to them of God ami His wonders in the
shadow of Nature's grandest mountains,
And the'ii renins came true, for the young
Corsican-and dreamer became thc eminently successful Indian missionary,
Father Coccola. He has transformed
the Indians of East Kootenay into good
citizens nnd good men. They revere
their priest as a man of God, a good
shepherd, and he loves bis Indians us a
mother loves her child. Une day lie
told his Indians of a project to build a
beautiful church, that would be worthy
ofthe Divinity, but being poor in the
world's goods, his only hope of building
such a church lay iu the discovery of a
hidden treasure or u mine by one of his
Indians.' This set his fuithTul red men
to thinking, and one of them mimed
Peter left the St. Eugene Mission and
went chasing through the mountains
hunting- for game and treasure. In a
few weeks he returned to the Mission
and reported lhat he hud found the
treasure that whs to build the house of
God. It was then that Jumes Cronin
appeared upon ihe scene. Cronin had
been a dreamer, too, hut he was also ;i
man ot choice. Horn in the south ol
Ireland, nl a spot where the Atlantic
billows were ever heard, Cronin could
not help being possessed of dreams und
romance. And so for 20 years we find
him chasing fortune from Mexico to
Alaska. He once had a partner, Jim
Sullivan, in New Mexico, and they
owned a itch mine. Uul Sullivan would
neither sell or work it, so Cronin turned
to the 'mountains ol Idaho for new opportunities. Some years later when he
returned to his mine in Mexico, he found
that his partner had disappeared und
that pirates had come along and had
stolen every pound of valuable ore out of
the mine. Jim Sullivan had killed
man in a drunken row, hut he escaped
punishment by proving to the satlsfuc
tion of the New Mexican courts that hi
had been killed in a railroad accident
He hnd not been killed, hut he had changed his name to Jim U'Connell, and at
Pinuaclejim of Okanogan he wus known
to all the old timers ofthe Northwest. A
few mouths ago poor Jim Sullivan went
over to the majority killed by the bullet
of a pal in a drunken brawl. Cronin and
Sullivan are types, When Cronin made
money he realized the romance of his life
when he journeyed to his native land uud
wedded one of linn's lovely daughters.
When Jim Sullivan made money be jump
ed into a prolonged debauch. Six mmiUis
ngo Pinuaclejim showed uie a check for
$5,000 jjiveu him by Governor Mack iir
tosh aa part payment oil limine. He
immediately purchased a brush and a pot
of red paint, and never let up till death
put nn end to his worthless, useless life.
In 1893 Cronin was in Ivist Kootenay.
He set out one morning from Fort Steele
011 a broncho to visit the North Star mine,
When a mile out n huil storm came up
and his broncho refused to curry him any
further and he was forced to return. I:
wast there he met Fnther Coccola, who in
duced htm to goto the Mission, where he
told him the story of Iudinn Pete's discovery and for what he wanted it. Though
very skeptical, Cronin agreed to accotn-
I'uiy'tW priest and the Indian to lhe far
away mountain near the lakes where the
hidden treasure was, And thus it cauie
topass thnt these three men were grouped together around a camp fire by lhe
lonely lake of Moyie. in June, 189J. It
was a strange group; the Indian, the
Irishman and the Corsican made.
Next morning they climbed a lofty
mountain and 5500 feet above the lake
the Indian pointed out his discovery
Cronin was amazed, for he snw at 1
glance all the evidence of a great galena
mine. The Indian had indeed found
the treasure that w. a to build the church
for the good prie.il. So Cumin .-taked
out two claims and culled ihem the St
Eugene and the St. Peter. Cronin re
ceived a half interest for his services
and the priest and thc Indian the other
half. Then Mr. John A Finch bought
out the.priest and lhe Indian forf>ia,5oo,
and Father Coccola built him a beautiful church and a handsome residence fnr
Indian Pete, and the story of the St,
Kugetie mine is a sacred legend among
the red men of the Kootetiays.
This is the story of the discovery of
the great St. Eugene mine. There nre
four working tunnels on this mine, nnd
ore enough blocked out between the
funnels to pay 1,75a,dog in dividends, and
thin will not exhaust the ore resources
above the ^oo-fuot level. For mini
purposes Ihere is not a liner siluated
mine mi the American continent ihati
the St. Eugene. It can he mined for 20
years hy tunnels, for nt the level of the
lake a tunnel 3500 feet long will tap the
ore chute at a depth of 1800 feet.

It was an eccentric picture gallery,
with pictures painted by men who were
young enough   to   know   better,   of
sprawling ladles In green, scarlet lnrnl-
1 blue angels.   The frames
I in themselves a grim attraotiou
st of the visitors; the catalogue
jually preserved   by   atibui-ban
patrons for the purpose of frightening
birds.  Vet the gallery wns not without
tractions uu a cold da;- when the wind
t along from the Qreen park, down
I'linlilly.      racing    another   wind
liioh wus speeding madly along Pall
Mall with u slight start In advance toward Waterloo place.
"It does iim* gootl," suid Mr. James
M-uvhuiit, "to come toil, whovv like this.
If I ever go out to the Cape again—"
"Which you won't," said the young
"And I feel wistful—"
"Mul tlu pays," suggested the young
"Exactly. Why. then, tshall think of
this hideous collection of pictures, and
1 shall feel reconciled to my lot. The
Cape te not all honey, but at any rule
you do get nature there.   And nature
is always good."
"I suppose theso nrttsts think she can
bf improved by the Introduction of a
little novelty."
"I wouldn't," said Mr. James Mar*
chant, waving his stick round the gallery, "I wouldn't give twopence halfpenny for the lot of them."
"I don't Biippose they would care to
sell t heni for less."
Mr. James Mnrclnuil laughed good-
temperedly, and touched her hand,
which happened to be resting 011 her
Itncc. It wus » very pre Ily hand had
very nently gloved, and there was good
excuse for him.
"Hut then' is something." he said,
lowering Ute voice, "something in the
gallery, Ella, that I would give every
penny I hnve In the world to possess,"
"A picture?"
"Prettier than any picture."
"IJctter shaped than any -statuary."
"Not disposed of •already?"
"I hope not. There is only one difficulty—I am not sure, if I were to muke
nn offer now, thut it would be accepted."
"How shall you find out?"
He rose and adjusted his frock coat
with the manner of a mnn to whom for
some yonrs frock coats hud not been
familiar wear, He was a tall, brown-
fneed mnn, with a good deal of earnest*
ness in hts eyes.
"1 shall oak Mrs. Beckett."
"OI" she said. She gasped a Utile before she went on. "And you—yon think
my stepmother will be—will be able lo
advise yuu iu lhe mutter?"
"I think she will." They walked slowly on the thick carpet to the Bwlng
doors.  "Besides, it'- only fair to do so."
"It seems to me," she snid, rolling up
her catalogue very tightly, "rather an
otd-faahloitcd mode of procedure."
"Tli en* is this excuse in iny case.
Mrs. Beckett Ims an iden, I am afraid,
1 hul 1 have brought back from the Cape
untold gold. I wnnt tn muke her understand that when I sny I shall huve to
work for my living, I renlly mean it."
"I am glad," she suid, quietly.
"1 shall see you to-night?"
"I nm not sure," she said, with her
littlo hnnd resting for a moment In his.
"I think the invitation Is for two only."
"I huve a great mind," said Mr. ,7nines
Man-hunt, looking down at her affectionately, "to kiss .you."
"Thai is nocvldcnceof a great mind,"
she said, reprovingly. "Besides, yon are
in Loudon uow."
"And don't people kiss in London?"
"They don't kiss me, Mr. Merchant."
"I nm very glad nf thnt."
"And people don'l lull- of kissing ut
tho doors of picture galleries."
"I nm afraid," said Jumes Merchant
apologetically, "that I have mueh to
learn before 1 become recivili/ed. The
Cape moke one forget, nil one's manners."
"It has not made you forgot your
friends," she snid.
"There waa one." he aa:dA ca hs £5-
sislivl her into the hansom, "auu wus
ouly 11 sin nl I girl—"
"Not old enough to count?"
"Of whom I thought every day of my
life out there."
There were tears in lier eyes that
challenged the lightness of ber gouil-
by. The small gloved hand was pressed
in the big fist of the man from the Cape
for one moment, and then he gave tlie
address to the driver,
A bright face with the tears of happiness still then* looked through lhe glass
as the hansom drove off, and Mr. James
Match ant strode nwny with a glad heart
ro see a business mnn in Bedford-street,
For men who wnnl to earn money must
force Iheir thoughts nwny even from
the direction of pleasant young women.
It waa by great dexterity that ul dinner in Duke street mansion Mint night
Mr. Jumes Miiri-liiint contrived to get
hlmsolf paired with the excellent Mrs.
IleckeM. Mrs. Beckett declared herself onchanted; but this wns so frequent n declaration on the part of Mrs.
Beckett that it was held to mi-tin something less thnn the phrase realty meant.
"I should have thought you would
have Insisted, aim—ply Insisted on taking down my dear Madeleine."
Mrs. Beckett fluttered her fun at Mr.
Merchant in a manner that hud in the
early seventies been pronounced bewitching,
"I wnnt particularly to speak to you,
Mrs, Heckett. I wnnt to offer myself—"
"S—•*—sh," mi id Mrs. Heckett, mysteriously, "Not a word. I know exactly what you ore going to say, Madeleine, my dear." She called to a tall,
Imiiy dimmd just in front of 'them.
"Von haven't shaken builds with dear
Mr. Marehnnt. Uow very remiss of
you. Thc dear girl is so thoughtless;
do you know, Mr. Mnrclmiit, that I declare to goodnosa I believe .-die's in
Miss Miidi-lelne received thisrnillery
with a grim smile and shook hands
with Mr. Marehnnt. Miss Madeleine
explained thai her half-sister Klla hud
remained at homo because she   had
some writing to do.
"Poor Klla,' said Mrs. Beckett, with
effusive sympathy, "poor, dear girl.
I'm really dreadfully fond of her. You
must give me your advice, Mr. Mat*
chant, concerning her at dinner. 1
feel already—forgive ine for saying bo—
I feel already us though you were one
of the family."
Mrs. Beckett gave her little cuckle of
self-approval und general satisfaction
und went on as they seated themselves
ut the table:
"1 huve noticed it- alt ulotig, ilo you
know, uud 1 nm so delighted. Quite
enchanted really. And my influence with
the dear girl wilt make her like- you.
I dare say you may have thought her
a little—what shall 1 say—cold?—but,
aa l\ matter of fact, it hus only been—
0, blesa my soul, thick soup, please—
what is the expression? It hu*-. only
been—it has only been—"
"Maidenly reserve?" suggested Mar-
"Pre—elsely! Pre—clsely what I was
trying to say. How clever of you, dear
Mr. Murchnnt. I cun understand now
how* it wus you got ou so well in South
Africa, And your assertion that you
hud come home with very little was,
1 could ree, only a pretense to try us.—-
Yes, sherry, please."
"I want to speak to you about that,
Mrs. Heckett. I'm afraid you don't
realize whut I mean when I say that I
haven't brought much home with me."
"Now, my dear Mr. Marehnnt."
"You must allow me, please, to tell
you exactly iny position. Unless 1
work und earn money wc shan't have—"
"Mr. Merchant! This elaborate ruse
is one that 1 have heurd of before. A
woman like myself doesn't live in this
world for—well, a certain number of
years for nothing."
"No," said Mr. Mar-chant; "it costs
money, I know."
"That is not at all what I mean. But
when you came back from the Cape u
few weeks ago und hinted that you hud
ouly a few hundreds I could see through
it at once. It was—this is a dreadfully slangy expression—too thin, But
the dear girl, of course,  didn't   see
through it, and consequently you may
feel quite sure that she will love you
for yourself alone, That's all you
wanted, isn't it?"
"That, certainly, is all that I wanted,
"And, fortunately enough, to confirm
my suspicions, I came across a letter
addressed to a friend of mine — she
didn't know that I saw it, but I managed to do so all the same—from your
partner, Burchison."
"Really?" Mr. Jiunes Merchant was
suddenly interested.
"And Mr. Buchison said that you and
he had mude. a pile—such an odd expression, Isn't It—of £20,000. And he
snid that he thought you would both
stay on for a few years, but as we know
you sensibly enough came home."
Mrs. Beckett looked triumphantly
across at her anirulor daughter opposite, who wns bawling information
about the weather to a deaf archdeacon,
and then at Murchnnt. .She shook her
bend waggishly at tbe man from the
"Can I aee that letter?" he asked,
"Fortunately I have it in my pocket,
but I really don't knunv whether! ought
to show it to you. You see, it 1s private."
"Is that why you took it, Mrs. Beckett?"
"Come, come, Mr. Merchant. Don't
be too severe. One haw to keep one's
eyes ojien In this world."
She found the letter with some difficulty—for the pockets in ludles' dresses
are remote and diHicult of access—and
under ambush of his plate Marehnnt
read It,
"Mrs. Beckett," be said, excitedly, "you
have, without knowing it, done me a
very great service. Iturchison declared
to mn thut lie had invested our gains,
and that nil thc money hud been lost.
It, seems from thia letter that he Has
behaved shumefnlly, und I shull moke
him disgorge every penny that belongs
to me. I shall go buck to the Cape by
the next boat,"
"This is very unsatisfactory," declared Mrs. Beckett, uggrievodly, "You
can't, very well get married before next
"The dear girl will wait," he answered, confidently.
"I'm not so sure of that," said Mrs.
Beckett, with some snappishness.
"Dear Madeleine is not so young as
she wus."
"So I should judge. But what has
she to do with the affair'.* is sbe to
Ih* bridesmaid V"
"Madeleine bus been bridesmaid often
enough," suid Mudeleiue's mother.
"This time, providing tills money affair of yours comes out right, she will
he, the bride."
"Whose bride, Mrs. Beckett?"
"Why, bless the man," cried Mrs.
Beckett, "yours."
"I don't see how Hint can be managed
with convenience. There's u law against
bigiituy, I believe. Besides, I only want
to marry yonr stepdaughter."
"Ella?" cried Mrs. Beckett, omazedly.
"If you don't, mind."
Mrs. Beckett laid down her flshknife
and fork and stared distractedly
around tbe tuble nt the other guests.
Finally her eyes rested on Madeleine,
and she frowned so much al that young
lady that Madeleine asked across tho
table in an audible tone if she were ill,
"111?" echoed Mrs. Beckett, tartly; "I
hnve uncommonly good cause to be. To
think thnt I have taken nil this trouble
for tho sake of poor Mr. Beckett's ridiculous little daughter by his first wife.
Why, she isn't worth—"
"Kxeuse me," interrupted Merchant,
promptly; "you will remember, please,
that you nro sjieaklng of a lady who Is
to be iny wife."
"Hah!" said Mrs. Beckett.—Cham*

Divorces in Canada.
Divorce in Canada is a luxury which
ouly the rich may enjoy. Hon. David
Mills states tbat during tbe past twenty
years Canada has granted only 116 decrees of divorce, while dining lhe same
period the United Slates bud granted no
less than 400,000 similar decrees. Tbe
Hon. Mr. Mills plends strongly for the
continuance of the Canadian law as il
hns been. The feeling ofthe Senate is
tbat there is not a more dangerous enemy to the stability of the state than lax
divorce laws, and if Canada wete to continue to be respected and honored by other nations for the unf'inching faithfulness to the principles which exalt a people, lhe divorce law must stand where it
is at present-
Former IHaiutaltlon of the Fat Scrap-
inva  frum  l'ur.
Here ia 1111 echo from tho days when

oleomargarine as butter:
"Wo no longer hnvo the same profitable wayof disposing* of our wuate products that WO luul 11 fow years ago" said
a fur dealer the other day. He looked
retrospective and a trilh: regretful, as
he continued:   "Then' w«h -always a
ready market then for every particle of
the fm scrapings from the dllferent
nkiiiH. Who took them? Why, theolco-
margarine manufacturers, to In* sure.
They would tend wugtins up to uiy
place every day und oarry away several
biirrelfuls of tbe fat and grease which
have to be taken off the under side of
the heavy pelts, Skunks, opossums,
nil kinds of animals contributed.   It
nil went into the butter, ltut. tb'it is
over with now, Blneo this new tnw has
been in operation, thai branch of business has bet-u dead. People could oat
skunk und opossum greuse, you know,
so long as it was called butter, but if
U10 dealers me obliged to come out
riuiikly with 11 description of its real
character, their customers object."
The  I'Kiiiliii-  In  India.
In an article on the "Famine in India," in the North American Review,
Sir Edwin Arnold states that 110,000.-
Diiu of people in that vast country de-
pond on the rainfall upon 126,500,000
ni-res which fulls upon tlm whole during two seasons lu Hie year. If it fails,
thore ia a failure of crops over the entire area. In ihls country no drought
covers tbe entire country; there It
docs. Hqiiiilly interesting to us Ib the
further statement that all the good
■"round Iiiih boon taken up in India—a
fuet which should silence the fears of
wheat growers thnt India has many
millions of uncultivated wheat lands.
Besides, the customs of the people pre-
rout larger and better cultivation. The
farmer uses a pointed stick as a plow,
uh did his nncofltors 3,000 years ngo,
