Seattle, Oct. 27th. [Special to Nkws]���
Twelve dead bodies found and at least
eight more supposed to have lost their
lives with many persons terribly injured,
are among the results of a conflagation
which early this morning consumed the
West Street Hotel in this City. Shortly
after 1 o,clock Officer Bryant, patrolling
the water front, saw flames issuing from
the West Street Hotel and turned on an
alarm. He then ran to the rescue of the
people asleep. Almost the same instant
night clerk.F. Butler, heard an explosion
in the kitchen of the hotel and ran up
stairs to find it all ablaze. He rushed
through the corridors to awaken the inmates, but unfortunately he was too late
to rescue any.
The fire department was soon on hand
but cnuld do nothing because of the nature ofthe building, which was a perfect
tinder box; the tire eat its way quickly
tlirnuirhout the building.
Fireman David McDonald and the
clerk found the body ofa man in a room
hi the side of the stnira nt the West street
entrance pinned to the floor by the bed. He
was apparently dressing when overcame
by the smoke and suffocated, for the only clothing he had on was bis trousers
and boots. The body was terribly burned and almost unrecognizable. A few
minutes later more discoveries were made
and then the fearful nature ofthe disaster
was realized. The lodgers had no time
to save themselves ar.d death came with
out warning. They probably were awakened hy the crackling roar ofthe flames
and opening the doors of their rooms
were met by the flames from thc hallways
death following almost instantaneously.
Officer Bryant, and a person, who declined to give his name picked up a short
ladder lying in the alley and placed it
against the roof of one ofthe main building. By this means they rescued twenty-
three persons, going from window to
window. One man by the name of I).
B. Glass, who Jumped to the sidewalk,
dressed in Ins night clothes was picked up
and carried into the washing room ofthe
S. L. S. & E. R. Ry., while the patrol
waggon was sent for. He stated that he
had been here for two weeks and hnd
come from Champagne County, New
York. He complained of pains in his
back and lower parts. How serious he
was injured is nut known, Another, who
jumped,was C. II. lenson, a Swede, from
Minnesota. He was badly scorched on
his hands and arms and suffered badly
from burns from where he had caught
hold. When the patrol wngon arrived he
mounted the box and was driven to the
hospital along with Glass. It was 2.45
o'clock when the fire fire was sufficiently
under cuntrol to admit of any part of
the upstairs ofthe hotel being examined.
At that hour Fire Chief Hunt, Chief nf
Police Rogers, Coroners Houston, Deputy Coroner Green, and newpapers reporters made their way to the floor
and amid thc blackened debris,
In thc centre of the building were found
nine bodies, within a spare of about
twelve feet square. The smell of burning
flesh everywhere prevailed. It was a
scene sometimes read of but seldom seen.
Treading carefully through thc devious
passage*i of the building the searchers
found a body charred beyond recognition,
thc flesh being burned to a crisp,
A little further on in the same passage
was another body, evidently that of a
woman, fare upwards and hands nut as
if fighting for life and appealing for assistance which never came. There was little
left of the woman's form, for part of the
body was charred and the burned bones
lay around it. In another room were six
bodies huddled together as ifthe unfortunate beings were overcome with smoke
while endeavoring to escape. In the
hall passage way was another body evidently that of an aged women. Her
body was fearfully burned; ber face was
upturned and and she appeared lo have
died in the most violent agony. The
arms, hands and face were burned and in
her blackened burned hand was a handful of hair, as if she in her agony had
clenched it in despair. But tli<jt saddest
sight of all was found in a side' room of
the passage way which led to the West
Street. There calmly lying in a charred
and blackened bed was evidently an en-
lire family. The father lay on one side,
.tbe wife next to him, and then a little
child, the flesh falling in threads from the
small fingers. Crouched in a corner nf
a small inside room two charred and
naked skeletons met their gaze. The
flesh was burned from each and the first
that ofa man, with blackened '���tumps of
arms seemed to be fighting and defending from danger- Immediately behind
him and bolt upwright and clutching ��� is
waist, was tbe skeleton ofa worflOrt, The
arms were burned from  the sockets of
each, but even then one could easily imagine the look of deadly fear which must
have crazed them as the couple were
overpowered by the merciless foe. What
a horrible death I In another room was
found a skull, the thigh bone, and arms
of a human body with the entrails remaning. It was impossible to tell either
the age, or fiax of the unfortunate victim.
There were about twenty transient guests
reristered, and night clerk says the hotel
had about twenty permanent guests.
The following ib a list of the transient
guests as shown by the register taken
from the burning bbilding: A. Wilson,
F. Bullman, R. D. Simonson, C. D. Johnson, M. McLoorly, John Chesterman, F.

city; M. G. Debrickson* Port Rlakely.
A. G. Butler, brother of the proprietor is
known to be missing and many other
people may be covered up in the debris
of the burned building. Sanburn's grocery store and other smaller stores situated on the ground floor of the hotel were
destroyed, with a great deal of property
amounting to manv thousands of dollars.
The telephone instruments were transferred last Eriday to McPhee's new store
which is rapidly neaiing completion.
The Urquhart Bros are busy putting in
their new planing machine and when that
is in shape they will have a very finely equipped saw mill.
Work on thc road dyke is progressing
slow, owing to the bad weather and the
heavy tides.
Mr. David Jones is fixing up his place
very nicely. G. H. Scott of Union who
painted the News building has been doing
some artistic paper hanging for him, and
he will move into his new house this week.
Miss Jessie Carwithen, the eldest
daughter of Mrs. R. T. Carwithen was
united in marriage on Thursday last to
Mr. Robert McQuillan one of our most
esteemed, industrious and gentlemanly
young men. The ceremony was perform
ed at two o'clock by the Rev. J, X. Willemar at the rectory, in the presence of
relatives and intimate friends. The happy couple will settle down to house keeping here in Courtenay, and have the best
wishes of all.
There was a circumstance which should
he noted only to be rebuked. It was the
intention to have thc ceremony performed at the English Church, where the contracting parties repaired, but there also
came a hoodlum set with old tin pans
and worse manners, and these becoming
noisy and failing to keep qui**t after a polite request, a hurried whispered consultation was held when the contracting
parties with the minister, relatives and
friends quietly withdrew, and walked
over to the rectorv within a short distance, l��nving ihc hoodlum element behind, discomfited,crestfallen, and covered
with shame. It served them right and
all right minded people will applaud their
spirit of self respect and independence
exhibited by the marriage party.
We often hear of one waning to buy
an acre or two of cleared land, convenient to schools and churches, but unable
lo do so. The difficulty is removed
for a season as blocks of one or
two acres can now be obtained through
Rev. Mr. Willemar, at Sandwick, facing
the road, for the reasonable price of a
hundred dollars per acre.
As money is wanted to build a parsonage it has been determined to dispose of
this very disirable property.
The treasurer of the Comox Agricultural and Industrial Association, Wm.
Duncan, will pay prizes at his place,
Sandwick, next Thursday afternoon and
following Thursday afternoons. As the
association is not yet on its feet, having
had to build this year, if there are any
ftrizc winners, who desire as a few did
ust year, to denote the amount won or
a part of it, to the association, the same
will be thankfully received and publicly

reasons to be encouraged.

���-V *��� -.--��� To Avoid the Overflowing1 of Cisterns
Farmers often have trouble during heavy
rains in kuepiug thoir cistorns from overflowing. A dampness near the house causes
k damp, wet cellar, which should be
strenuously avoided. The accompanying
illustration, presents a plan for avoiding
such overflowing cisterns. A forked pipe
a fastened i'-io tha raiu gutter or receiver
from the roof. At the junction of the two
arms or switch pipes there ia a ahut-cfT
which is operated by a wire rod, whioh aa
it appears in the illuatratioa tun.s the obstruction plate within the pipe and stops its
eutrauce into the cistern when the latter is
cousidered full enough.   Tlio   other pipe
carrion the water away into a drain or ditch
that is properly made and covered. This
keeps everything dry about the house, and
the annoyance so often aeen on the farm in
wet weather ia avoided. Tho cistern is
located back of the   kitchen,   under the
Elatform and step of the porch, being at
and when water is wanted, adding muoh
in the convenience to the houaewtfo and
saving tho labor of carrying it from a barrel
or other receptacle near the houae, aet out
to catch the water. This arrangement ean
be made at any tin store. It is beat made
of galvanized iron, which will not rust or
wear out as easily as tin, aud will laat for
Packing: Butter For Winter.
While winter dairying is slowly increas
Ing it requires so much skill and careful
management, and such a great change in
the common methods of tho farm, that
while it ia the moat profitable part of dairying farming, it la not likely for some yeara
yet, to be sufficiently practised to fully
supply the demand for butter in the winter.
Thus the summer dairyman may atill find
it profitable to pack the fall made butter
for winter sale. And, indeed, he may do
this with advantage as well aa safety, for
when the best quality of butter is packed
in tbe best manner, it will improve during
the keeping from the fall uutil winter,
and be really moro desirable than the ordinary winter made article. This ia due to
the fact that by the alow ripening in the
package during storage in a cool, clean
place, and ioBweet air-tight packages, there
is a slow internal change going on in the
butter by which its finest flavor ia developed and aa with frutta, so the butter ia great-
improved by what may truly be called in
both���a process of ripening. Two thinga
are to be considered in this subject, alwaya,
however,promising that the butter is of the
best quality, as it easily may be when it ia
made from tho aweet, fresh,fall grass, equal
in every respect to tho freah,apring pasture,
The first thing in tho process ie the package ; the eocoud, the manner of packing
the butter.
The best package for this purpose is a
new white oak pail, made of sound timber,
freo of knots and blemlahea, half an inch
tbiok, well jointed, and perfectly aeaaoned.
This pail holds fifty pounda, White spruce
ia the next beat material, and ia quite aa
free from any objectionable odor or taste
given to the butter. The pail is prepared
by a thorough cleauing in pure water. It
ahould be soaked for at least twenty-four
hours, then well scalded, and then filled
with brine. This ia done ao that it may
auy under the brine twenty-four houra
before the butter ia packed. The pail being
ready, the butter ia paoked aa aoon aa it
has been finished at the second working,
the dayafter it is churned. It is salted in
the usual manner, one ounce to the pound
of butter, of the very purest aud  finest
6round aalt. It is worked as dry aa it cau
e. The pail being emptied of the brime,
is duated all over the inaide with the salt,
and the butter ia put in only so much at a
time aa will mako a layer of four inches.
This ia compactly pressed down by a maple
preaaer, made like a common potato maaher,
so that all the moisture is pressed out and
drained off. If in this moisture there is
any cloud or shade of milk, the butter haa
nob been made aa well as it abonld be, and
will not come out in perfect condition.
Not a shade of milk ia to bo permitted in
the butter for thia use, but any moiature
that drains from it should bo as clear as
the dew on the morning grass. Then the
butter thua put in in lightly duated with
salt, and another layer is put in in the
same manner, until thn pail ia tilled to a
quarter of an inch of tho (ilge of the rail.
If the butter Ih not sullicent for a full
pail, it ia packod as far aa it cau be and
covered with aalt, and the pail is put away
until the next churning, being kept covered
with a clean towel. Then tho next churning is packed iu the aame manner until tin
pail ia Ailed aa mentioned, when the butter
ia covered with a piece of good, heavy shirting cloth, well waslieil in boiling water
and steeped in brine, with thu pail, tt is
out half au inch larger than the outer edge
of the psil. Ills pressed down on the but
ter to exolude all air, a littio salt being
sprinkled under it, and is then covered
with dry salt to the edgo of tho pail ; this
salt is well pressed down and is covered with a sheet of parchment paper on
which is printed tho name of the butter-
maker and tho dairy, and auy handsome
device that may be unco* as a trade-mark.
This ia in juatice to the person who will
take all thia trouble to make a fine article
of butter. The cover, treated as the pail
haa been, is then securely fastened down
and the pail in stood in a cool, clean, aweet
collar where the air ia dry. Butter ao
packed will be in the linost condition until
May or June of tho next year, and ahould
bring the highest market rates.

former nest, stumps art: easily disposed of
by burning. Most hardwood stumps, as tbe
hickory, maple, anil oak, soon lose their
grip on tho aoil by tho rapid decay of their
"mall roota, hence, unless tbo land is at onco
needed, it in the cheapest plan to let them
remain undisturbed for several years. In
the meantime the land may bo pastured
with sheep, thus keeping down tho bushes

pretence of much pitch in the fibre of the
wood makes them well nigh indestruotible.
Suoh stumps oan be removed only by burning or pulling. The former plan is not
thorough ou account of the multitude of
roota near the aurface, and pulling ia a
tedious, expensive operation. Often a few
stumps mar the appearance of any otherwise
presentable field, and many farmera bave
for years plowed, sowed, and reaped around
these obstructions without any apparent
thought of lemoviun them. The time thua
spent, and the grain and grass that would
have grown upon the portions of the field
thua occupied, would nave covered the expense of removing them several timea.
When stumps and brush heaps are removed,
sow the land immediately to graaa seed.
When intended fur pastutage, or to be

Seed thus sown and raked into the soil will

l-tlNledMHt-torifcf* Rooks In lhe Library
Will be Kra-ly by ItM.
With the ond of the century the printed
catalogue of all the books in th-j library of
the British Museum, which ia now in pro-
grcaa, will be completed. It ia the greatest
undertaking of its kind in any age or country, and will ne a register of almoat all the
vulual-lo literature of former centuries.
The number of Looka aod pamphleta now In
the library ia l,7r>0,000, and will be 2,000.**
000 by 1900, aa over 40,000 volumes are
added yearly. The undertaking waa begun
in 1881, and was then expected to take
forty yeara; the work, however, haa pro
gresaed very rapidly, and had the Parliamentary grants been more liberal would
havo been finished.
The firat catalogue was made in 1787,
and consisted of two folio volumes in
manuscript, which in tbe second catalogue
in 1810 had grown to eight. In the thirties*
under Mr. Panizzi's direction, a new edition
waa undertaken, of whioh the letter A waa
printed in 1841, but there the printing
stopped ; the reat waa completed In manuscript and placed In the reading room in
1851. It consisted of 150 folio volumes.
In 1857 the beautiful new reading room waa
opened, and apace added to tho library to
hold a million volumes, Mr. Panizzi man*
aged to secure grants enough from Parliament to fill up thia space in thirty yeara.
By 1875 the catalogue contained 3,000 folio
volumes, and hy 1880 3,000. Through the
efforts of Mr. Bond, who ia now Chief
Librarian, and Dr. Garnett, the keeper of
the printed booka, an appropiatlon was
then obtained for printing the catalogue,
and thus ending the confusion into which
it had fallen.
Though much space will be saved by the
printing, the complete catalogue will be
enormous. The letter A haa been reduced
from 120 volumes of manuscript  to  23 of
Erint, the letter B from 132 volumes to 35,
ut the total number of volumes in the
end will be 600, containing three million
titles. As faat aa a volume Is completed
copies are distributed to provincial and
local libraries in Kngland, aud to other institutions throughout the world.
This splendid work hu been and ia still
being performed by the regular staff of the
library; not a single new assistant has
been added in consequence of tbe additional work. The reviaion and transcription, with all the laborious investigations
which they necessitate, are part of the silent, every-day life of the otliciala in the
great library ; men who have auppreaaed
themselves to make the world'a intellectual
wealth accessible to their fellow-men. The
compilation of the catalogue ia a service to the English-speaking race all over
the world.

Asthma, So Ills said.
Attacks of asthma may be brought ou hy
the moat varied and singular causes, different sort of a:ents, the odor of raspberries,
as was the oase of Claude Bernard ; the
smell of hay, the vapor of a aulphur match
that haa just been lighted, the dust from
oats or powdered ipecacuanha. One patient
will havo asthma in the north, but will be
free from it In the south ; another will
have asthma in Paris, but will be perfectly
well in Vienna ; still another will have the
moat terrible attacks as long as he is in
Egypt, but will be relieved as soon as he
gets to aea.
It is generally admitted nowadays that
the attack of asthma is due to a spasm of
the inspiratory muscles, and that the origin
of the trouble Is some stimulation of the
nasal mucous membrane. On the other
hand, it is also known that a vigorous stimulation ofthe mucous membrane of the nose
may put an end to an attack of asthma;
therefore in this purely nervous phenomenon the oame cause may either bring on or
put an end to the attack,
It Is on this peculiarity that are based a
certain number of methoda of treatment of
an attack of aathma, and the latest born of
thase methods constats in sniffing eau de
cologne. My readers may remember that
I made known to them the process whereby
M. Roux, of Lyons, outs abort colds In the
head and chest at their beginning. It consists in having the patients inhale by the
mouth and nose for about two minutea and
about four or five times a day about fifty
drops of cologne water. It is now claimed
that the same method wilt put an end to an
attack o  aathma.

" Which is the safest car on a railway
train I" repeated an old railroad man, as he
stroked his chin and seemed to reflect on
the query. " Well, the beat answer I can
make is that it is the car which doesn't
run off the rails when all others do, and
whioh ia left on the bank when the train
goes through abridge."
" You've travelled thousand*, of miles by
" Yea, tena of thousands."
" And beeu in half a dozen accidents !"
*' I've been in exactly seventeen railroad
accidents, but some of them were hardly
worth mentioning."
*��� And do you locate yourself in any
particular part of the train ?"
" No. When I firat began travelling X
wouldn't ride in any coach but the rear
one. I had about two dozen reasons why
that waa the safest car, and for aix or eight
weeka 1 went rolling over the oountry
feeling as safe as if in my own brick houae.
One night we loat too muoh time at a atation and a special overhauled ua and ainaah-
ed into the rear coach. You'll think it
funny, but outof tbe aix teen people in that
car I was the only ono badly hurt, I had
a leg and two ribs broken and was covered
with bruises. When I was able lo be out
again I went dead back on the rear oar."
" And took tho noxt one to the smoker,
" That's what I did, A dozen different
railroad men had a dozen reasons apiece
why that was the safest plaoe, and for
three or four montha I rode in that car and
laughed at the chapa who carried inaurance
policies. Then my foud dream of safety
waa rudely shattered. The engine, baggage, and smoking cars paaaed aafely over
a certain switch while running at the rate
of forty miles an hour, but the forward
trucka of my car caught somewhere and the
car was twisted right out of the train.
Yes, air, It was torn loose at both ends and
rolled down an embankment, and not another car left the raila. We had two killed and a dozen hurt, but I got off the car
with a bad shaking up. My confidence in
the first car waa gone, however, never to be
"And then you took the middle of the
"I did, my son. Yes, I sat down and
reasoned It out to my perfect satisfaction
that the middle oar of the train was as safe
as aitting at home. It was about a year
before anything happened to undeceive me.
One afternoon, when we weredusting along
to make up loat time, we crossed the tracks
of another road juat a few seconds tooaoon
or too lato, just as you will havo it. An
express train on the other road camo
booming along and waded right through
us. It struck my car, of oourse, and what
was left of it after the grand amaah couldn't
have beon worked over Into a wheelbarrow.
Five killed was the record, and I got a
broken arm, a scalp wound, and a general
bad shaking up."
''And after that?"
'After that and up to the present date I
have no choice. I drop into a seat where-
ever I oan find one and don't worry about
accidents. I've known a whole train
except the lut coach to go through a bridge,
and I've known every ear but the laat to
paaa aafely over. In a head-on collision
the forward ooach may be smashed to
splinters, or it may rear up on end and
escape all injury, I waa on a train once
where a locomotive struck the rear car,
rolled it aside without serious injury to
anybody, and then killedor wounded every
passenger in the next coach. The man
who goes hunting for the safest car on a
train ia throwing away hia time. He may
take any car and travol for ten years, and
never even be delayed by a hot box ; or he
may settle down in the car of hla choice
and be killed in a ride of ten miles. I
once saw twenty-two people smashed In a
coach, and yet two fellows who were
atealing a ride on the trucka underneath
got oil scot-free. Juat buy a firat*olaaa
ticket, get aboard before the train goes,
and leave the rest to Providence."
It Is Ihe Ilnnt-ral Sonrce a many of Life's
creates! Evils.
Worry Is a baneful curse and sonrce of
untold evils. It seams tho face with lines
and furrows and has a most depressing
effect upon that hyper-sensitive organ, the
stomach, which at times becomes a most
unwilling and laggard servant. Indeed, it
is safe to aay thab unless encouraged by a
cheerful temper and bright, or at least
hopeful thoughts, the stomach will play
truant or sulk aod do no work which it oan
shirk. The physiological explanation of
this Is the olose alliance of the great sympathetic nerves, whioh ara worse than the
telegraph for carrying bad news; the
worry and anxiety whioh depress the brain
produce simultaneously a semi-paralysis ot

One sign of mental health is serenity of
temper and self-control that enables ua to
bear with equanimity and unrullled temper
the petty trials and jars of life, especially
those arising from contact with scolding,
irascible, irritating folk. It ia well to remember al auoh time that these unfortunates ara their own worst enemies, and the
cultivation of tbe art of not hearing will
help us very muoh. It is a very useful art
all through life and well worth some

A Remarkable Cure of Comuiuptlon In
IU Lest HUies-li This Once Dread
Disease Conquered ^-Important Facts
lo All Buffering Front Diseased or
Weak Lungs.
Elmwood, Ont, Aug., Qlst, 1894.
Dus Sirs:���I wiah to call your attention to a remarkable cure of consumption.
In March, 189.1,1 waa called in my professional capacity to see Miss Christina
Koester, of North Brant, who waa then
Buffering from an attack of inflammation of
the left lung. The attack was a aevere
one, the uae of the lung being entirely gone
from the effect of the diaeaae. I treated
her for two weeka when recovery aeemed
assured. I afterwards heard from her at
intervals that tho progress of recovery was
satisfactory. The case then passed from
my notloo uutil .Juno, when 1 was again
called to lee her, her friends thinking aha
had gono into consumption. On visiting
her I found their suspicions too well
fouuded. From robust health she had
wasted to a mere skeleton, scarcely able to
walk aorosB the room. She was sullering
from an intense cough, and expectoration
of putrid matter, in fact about a pint
each night. Thero was a burning hectic
fever with chills daily, A careful examination of thu previously diseased lung
showed that its function was entiroly
gone, and that in all probability it was
entirely destroyed. Still having hopes
that the trouble was duo to a collodion of
water around the lung I aaked for a
oonaultation, and tho following day with
a prominent physician of a neighboring
town again made a careful examination.
Every symptom and physical sign indicated
the onset of rapid consumption and the
breaking down of tho lungs. Death
certainly seemed but a short time distant*.
A regretful experience had taught me the
useleesneaa of tho ordinary remedies used
for thia dread and fatal disease, and no hops
was to be looked for in thia direction. I
had frequently read the testimonials in
favor of Dr. Williams' Pink Pillaln wasting
diseases, but not knowing their composition hesitated to uae them. Finally, however, 1 decided to give tliein a trial, and 1
um free to aay that I ouly uaod them at a
stage when I knew of absolutely nothing
i*lie that could save the patient's
life. The test waa a most severe one aud
I muat also admit an unfair one, as
tbe patient wai ao far gone as to make
all hope of recovety seem impossible. A
very short time, however, convinced me of
the value of Pink Pills. Although only
using an ordinary soothing cough mixture
along with tho pills, within a week the
symptoms had abated bo much that it waa
u�� longer necessary for me to make daily
calls. Recovery was so rapid that within
a month Miaa Koeater was able to drive to
my ollice, a distance of aliout aix milea,
aud was feeling reasonably well, except for
weakness. The expectoration had ceased,
the cough was gone and the breathing in
the diieasnd lung waa being restored. The
une of tho Pink Pills was continued nutil
tbe end of October, wheu she ceased totake
the medioine, being in perfect health. 1
-Jill watched her oase with deep interest*
out almost a year has now passed and not
a trace of her illneae remains. hi fact
sbo Isu well as ever sho was and no one
would suspect that she had ever been
ailing, to aay nothing of having been In
the clutches of auch a deadly diseasa aa
consumption. Her recovery through the
use of Pink Pills, after having reaohed a
stage, when other remedies wero of no
avali, is so remarkable tbat I feet myaelf
justified In giving the facts to tbe public,
and 1 regret that the composition of tho
pills is not known to the medical profession at large in order that their merit
might be tested in many more diseases
aud their usefulness be thus extended.
I intend giving them an extended trial
in the case of conaumption, believing
from their action in this case, (so well
marked) that they will prove a curative In
all cases whero a cure iB at all possible���
I mean before tbo lungs aro entirely
destroyed. Yourr truly,
The     Dr.   Williams'    Medioine   Uo.

That aiternoon Ethel sUrted for Paris.
She had somehow or other managed to pacify her Alderman, and, in faot, left him on
the best possible terms. I accompanied
her to the station, and bade her an affectionate farewell.
" We ahall soon meat again, darling,"
were her lut words; " I hopo to be back
Within ten days."
I returned to The Uplands with a sense
of oppression that 1 could neither account
for, nor yet ihaks off, and a sort of vague
foreboding of evil to oome. I suppose, in
reality, it was the effect of Prince Balani-
kofl's strange warning.
Lord Ashwell took me down tu
dinner that evening, and although, ol
oourse, he was kind and courteous, he
yet studiously refrained from anything like
demonstrative attention, knowing my ob*
jeotlon to our names being coupled together
for the present, and mindful of his pro-
mite to me on the subject,
I was very glad Indeed when the time
arrived that it was pouible for me to retire,
for 1 felt thoroughly worn out with anxiety,
doubt, aud a sort of dread of the unseen
evil with wbioh I wu apparently threatened. But when I got to bed no refreshing
sleep, nor, indeed, sleep of any kind, oame
to bring me relief, and I tossed about all
night a prey to vague misgivings and un*
plcuant reflections. I lit my candle and
tried to read, but I found It Impossible to
concentrate my attention for two minutes
together, so that I wu forced to give up
the attempt as hopeleu. I got up and
paced up and down the room and then went
to bed again, but the result wu precisely
the ume. I oould not sleep, do what I
would, and I wu finally compelled to
accept the Inevitable, and to remain awake
the whole right.
*' Stop awake all night," you will be told,
"why, it'a the best fun in the world.
Whenever there fa anything good to be
done in tho morning, 1 always take the
most particular oare not to go to bed. Once
go to bed and you oan never trust yourself.
You may sleep on like the princess In the
I wu in no hurry to figure early that
morning. Being no longer a child or even
a girl, I knew that In the fresh light of
dawn I should appear to disadvantage.
" Avoid two thinga," Ethel used to tell
me, " one of these Is the lime-light; never
let it fall upon you unawares."
In thia humor I went down to the
grounds. I am not defending my frame of
mind. Yon may call it defiant, you may
call tt what you pleue- It seemed to me
tbat I held all tho cards in my own hand,
and 1 wu still not in the prime of life, but
only on the threshold of that delightful
period. I consequently was restless, impatient, and In the very last temper calcu-
lated to provoke or to enoourags reflection.
I wandered about the grounds until the
bell In the turret of the tower to the stables
rang out the signal for lunob.
I entered the room more or less heedlessly. It had never occurred lo mo who
might be there, or who might not. I had
In my own mind reukoned up the company,
and wu not prepared for any addition to
it, I wu consequently fairly startled,
when, at the other end of tbe room, I saw
���entirely himself, with all his self*
possession about him, looking almost
twenty years younger than hia age, holding forth with the loquacity of a gossip,
and the assurance of a professor, and
evidently considering himself the heart,
centre and focus of the entire company-
no less a person than the husband whom I
bad onoe most solemnly vowed to ove,
honor, and obey.
It wu a distinctly difficult position,
I was looking steadily at Hir Henry
when he looked up, and our eyes met, I
made him a very formal bow, but it was
with an expression in my faoe which
intimated : "Try your worst. You aud I
know perfectly well that the soabbard Is
thrown away, I do not expect quarter,
and if you mean fighting, I oan fight u
well as yourself."
I remember George Sabine onco telling
me how he got the best of a very abusive
Yankee harbor-master. The Yank talked
with every variety of oath, ancedote,
abuse, and blasphemy for about an hour.
"When," said George, "he had blown his
wind and stopped spouting, I asked him
whether that was alt. He replied that it
wu. I thon told him, not in these exact
terms, that 1 wu devotedly grateful to
Providence.". My look at Sir Henry wu
of much the ume tenor. It meant, and
it was intended to mean, ' if you have a
tongue so have I. If you talk, 1 can talk."
And with this expression stereotyped into
my features. I looked at him and waited
for his look in return.
I have always said I considered him a
stupid man, but with a certain amount nf
pomp and management of dotal! wheu ho
might bo fully prepared with alt the circumstances. And in this world, stupidity
is apt to rank u wisdom purposely hidden
under a veil of cunning and caution. Not
knowing what to do, Hir Henry did nothing, but he also looked hopeless, helpless,
ana perfectly bewildered. Now a diplomatist ought to be no ono of these thinga
Luncheon over, I strolled away by my*
self down to the river. It wonld be idle to
pretend that I was not restless and uneasy.
As I turned a oorner among the lufinlte
windings of the shrubberies there, faoe to
faoe with me, stood Lord Ashwell
In one respeot, and in one only, I had
the advantage of him. I knew the very
worst whioh he oould certainly know, nothing beyond what he might have picked up
and added to by conjeoture. I, in othor
words, have batteries In reserve) but u
against this must be put the fact that I
wu now an old strategist, and that it is the
old strategists who are always beaten,for the
very simple reason that they follow stereotyped rules of the game, and are consequently unequal to a sudden emergency.
The meeting wu a little awkward. Of
oourse there wu mischief in the air, and 1
oould not possibly tell what curds he might
be holding in his hand. But I oould
see that his manner wu embarrassed
and uneuy. Therefore I conjectured
the worst, and prepared myself to face it.
One thing was evident, that he was In a
highly excited and irritable mood, u, In
faot, his very first words proved.
"It is very unpleasant, Mrs. (las*
oolgne," he said, "when unpleasant things
like this happen. I suppose they must happen sometimes, but for my own put I like
to get them over. I have no wish to put
any question whioh may be painful to yourself, or which I have not a perfeot right to
Sut, But I bellevo you know old Sir Henry
raven. He Ib down here, and hu been
saying a good deal About yon. I cannot
suppose for a moment that ho is telling
downright lies. There must be something
fa it He may have his own view of the
matter, and he may be, or he may not be
wrong. I do not think very much of him.
But what he hu said calls for an answer.
In faot it calls for an answer which I  can
f*o baok and give him.   I  am  very sorry
or all this trouble, and   I only hope   to
Heaven that you oan help me out of It."
"You mean,"  1 said,  "that my right
name ia not Gucoigne- You mean that I
once wu Lady Craven. Well. You know
my story u many other people know ft. I
could give you my own version of it, which
1 do not suppose you would believe for a
moment, or allow to effect you in any way.
Yoa mnst take the tale u it hu oome to
yon. If you knew tbe whole truth of It
you would be sorry for me. But even the
whole truth would not explain away the
facts. I quite know that. You know the
facta, and you know the worst The interpretation of them is another matter. I am
ready to interpret tbem, but oannot explain
them away."
" Surely," he said, "the matter is easy
enough. You were introduced to me u
Mra. Gasooigne, and you oame down here
u Mrs. Gasooigne. It now turns out that
you are not Mrs. Guooigne at all, but that
you are Lady Craven. The explanation of
that la for yourself. It is the kind of
thing which I do not underatand, aud to
which I am not accustomed."
"I hail intended to tell you everything.
My life hu had a history, and the history
of my life cannot always be compressed
Into a few sentences of space, or a few
minutes of time, I did not mean to have
any secret from you, and there is nothing
whatever which, at this minute, I wish to
keep or hide from you.   That is all."
"The whole thing," he replied, looking
at his boots and not at mo, "Is vary
unfortunate, and I must also add���vtry
unsatisfactory. I cannot see any way out
of it. Vou admit lhat you are not Mrs.
Guooigne. You admit that you are here,
to aay the leut, under a misunderstanding
Misunderstandings aro un pleasant things.
The difficulty in this oue is most certainly
not of my making."
"Tbe difficulty need not trouble you," I
oried. " In faat, it does not exist. I absolutely decline to be considered as upon my
defence. You are dissatisfied with what
you have heard of me. Let it be so. Vou
are going from this place, and so am I.
Let us part as if we had uever met, and let
us take very great oare never to meet
"I am sorry," ho replied; "but I am
afraid it must be so. 1 see no other way
out of the matter. There are always
troubles in this world and we have to lace
them. You can never tell when your I urn
may come, and when it does eome, the only
thing for you to do is to take your ehance
as best you can."
"You may be right," I said, "and I dare
say you are. The matter, however, is not
one to be argued out between us. Vou had
better see me as far u the house, and when
I am in its shade, we can part. We ahall
probably never meet again, and we certainly are not likely to break our hearts for
each other. The world has room In it for
the two of us, and our orbits in all human
probability will uever again cross."
We walked back to the house
sido by side without another
word. 1 think if he had said it
wu a fine day or had ukod me what were
the chances of skating in the cimingwinter,
and whether I liked skating. It would have
driven me mad. But he did nothing of the
sort. His silence was phlegmatic and
English. We marched along so slowly
and steadily that I could almost hear eaoh
single stone n the gravel orunoh under his
feet. Then wo reached the porch and I
said good-bye, aud, without waiting or
even looking at him, hurried intottie house.
Inquiries soon satisfied me that the
Lady Aletbela wu in tho bouse snd able to
receive me, I found her, or rather wu
taken to her, in a little room whioh I oan
best describe u half boudoir, half writing
In a very few minutes Lady Alntheia
entered. Her bearing was not perhaps
aggressive, but was unquestionably chilly,
and was evidently intended to produce a
corresponding impression.
���*1 nave to go, I said, "Lady Atetheia,
and I wished before I went to bid you good
-by and to thank you for yourhospitality."
"Oh, indeed," she answered. "You are
going, Lady Craven T Well 1 People come
anil people go. Perhaps it Is best that
leave-takings should be brief."
I had risen when she came in, and she had
not herself taken a Mat, so that we were
both standing.
"It ia perhaps best they should be
brief," I replied, "especially when they
are final uours Is likely to be,"
"I quite agree with you,' answered Lady
Aletheia, and she turned ou her heel, and I
heard the rustle of her skirts as she swept
along the corridor.

English equivalent for Bhaking the dust off

All things havo an end���even the journey

chemist's shop and uked for a sleeping

asked permission to feel my pulse, an.
then inquired whether I had uver taste

"Then, madam," said ho, "try a littio

It is a powerful soporific, and will send
you to sleep at onoe. And as thuaimr.ii
lingers In the breath, you had better let me

I burst out laughing. What an excellent
world it would ho If people would ouly be
pleasant and tell the truth I I took up
my lozenges, and further discharged my
obligations by purchasing a bottlo of Eau
de Cologne I need ouly add that his
advlso was entirely correct,. The President ot the Royal College of Physicians
himself could not possibly have given me
I did not troublo myself with thinking.
My mind wu absolutely made up. 1 had
closed the book of the put, and was going
to begin life over agaiu. Late, no doubt,
I wu, but u the proverb runs, "bettor
late than nover.,f Gather your roses
while you can. Or, as I fanoy I remember
Horace said, "Carpe diem, quam minimum oredula postero."
From* the Oare du Nord, whore Ethel
met me, bubbling over in her usual fuhion,
but u tender-hearted, sympathetic, and
true as ever, we wero driven hur-'Iedly to
the Rue Royale. By tha time we had got
there Ethel knew all I oould tell hsr, not
only with regard to what had taken place,
bnt also to my plans for the future,
"And you have made op your mind,
my dear, to do u he uksl"
���* Yes, I have thought It over. I won'e
say, as the Dean would, that I hav-
prayed over the matter, but 1 have con*
sidered it thoroughly. In the first place
I like Balanikoff i In tho second place, be
is a gentleman - in the third place,
I mean to do u I choose. Don't you
romember my old yachting story of the
bo's'un: 'If any man isn't happy aboard
this vessel, why, by the Lord, I'll make
him know what for.' That's my frame of
mind, my dear, I'm aboard this vessel,
and I'm perfectly happy,"
"Of course you are," ahe said; "and so
am I.   Goad people always are,"
About two montha after theso events, I
received a very long and very characteristic
letter from the Very Reverend ths Dean
of Southwick, He was in the most terrihle
distress. Wishing to add to his -stipend,
he had been induced to invest largely in the
Consolidated British and   Foreign Genoral
Financial Advance and Discount Company,
which wu to pay a minimum dividend of
tif teen per pent, The Company bad buret
up. In other words, it wu In liquidation,
and wu likely to remain so, u long u
there wu a scrap of flesh left upon
the grizzly bones for accountants, receivers,
trustees, and other such unclean vultures
topickat. To avoid disgrice and exposure,
fit had been compelled to set aside twelve
hundred a year out of hia fifteen. What
he wu to do he did not know. It wu the
dfviofl will and he must bow to it. At
the ume time, I aurely would not refuse
out of my abundant income to aid him tu
thia sore trial, and to enable him to have
at his disposal, not the luxuries of life,
for which he had never cared, but its stern
and bare necessities.
It was very wrong of me, but I laughed
over the letter, and profanely remarked
that Ally Sloper wu at it again. Then I
wrote my answer.

While In the public mind the great vine
at Hampton Court Palace ia esteemed the
most remarkable, even that Is excelled In
dimensions by the still greater vine at Cum*
berland Lodge, Windsor Park. Not only
theu giants, but probably all other vines
in the kingdom, have to give place for extent and productiveness to tbat most remarkable vine which Is just at the preaent
moment carrying the enormous quantity of
852 bunches and a total weight materially
exceeding half a ton.
This is growing at Manresa House, Roe
hampton, iu a vinery 224 feet long by 11
feet wide. The vine wu planted by the
present gardener, Mr. Davis, as a outting,
onto a wall outside, more than 30 years ago,
But finding that in tbe natural soil suoh
capital growth wumade, the presenthouse
was specially built tor Its accommodation,
so that now the vine and its main stems
stand partly across the house, just two-
thirds up its length. There are seven main
rods or branches running horizontally eaoh
way. These are allowed to oarry laterals,
or fruiting shoots, on the upper sides only,
so that the grapes, now fut becoming black
(for tho variety is the black Hamburg),
hang the entire length of tho roof in
atraight, even lines, instead of up the roof,
u is commonly the cue. Over two thousand bunches were out out after they had
ut, The value of the crop, estimated at
two shillings a pound���which is, as good
grapes go, perhaps not a high figure���would
be ��112. Probably no other tree of any
kind in the kingdom oould produce suoh a
sum in fruit annually.

Talks by the Doctor.
It hu been wisely  uid   "In  time  of
tace prepare for war." So, in time of
health prepare for sickness, rather, tbe
better way to prevent it. See that your
water suppliu are kept pure ; that no
refuse from stables and outhouses can
infect the well or cistern. From impure
water come our greatest Ills. The cellar
khonld be thoroughly cleaned and whitewashed ; every nook and corner may hold
the germs of death ; air it well; take down
coals of fire in an old tin pan and burn a
handful of sulphur, to fumigate every
niche and cranny. This should be done
now, when you can remain out of doors
an hour or two to let the sulphur do Its
perfeot work from cellar to garret, afterwards open your bedroom doors and windows to let out the fumes. Keep your
cabbages out of your cellar j thay decay
euily, and areata sickness by their
horrible stench. Indssd, It were far
better that you have no vegetables at all
under your house. Then will your home
be pure and healthy. Put your supplies
in tne ground or in some place prepared
for them. Better Incur a little expense to
do this than pay the dootor many times
more later on.
But when the malady hu oome it must
be disposed of in the best manner pouible
���the patient should be removed Into another house, or at leut to a separate room
away from all but the nurse. Aa ohiluren
oannot be of service they had better not be
allowed where the patient is, for mutual
protection. The less furniture in the room
the better, u carpets, bedding and upholstery are only nests of Infection. Aside
from the bed and necessary chairs and
table little else is essential. The room
should be ventilated at all times and kept
within comfortable temperature. The

Warding: Ofl Consumption.
The foundation of three-fourths of all
oues of consumption is laid before the age
nt twenty-five years.in women during their
teens. It is, therefore, important that
growing children Bhould receive great care
and attention during tho early fall. It is
far better to ward off attacks than to cure
them and this oan hardly be effected by the
constant uu of medicine, cordials, stimulants, etc., nor by too much coddling indoors, for no man or woman can have a
hardy ohest who does not breathe pnre air.
Sunshine should be courted by people predisposed to consumption. The exercise
ahould be of a gentle nature and draughts
should be carefnlly avoided. Carriage
exercise should not be taken on a day when
high winds aro blowing. The only bad
offsets of night air lie in its being colder
and damper than that of day. A sudden
ohange from a warm room to a cold one, if
one stands about in It, very often gives a
disagreeable chill. The morning tub bath
is not beneficial lo weak-chested people.
Rubbing the body every morning with a
dry, rough towel promotes circulation and
prevents all danger of a sudden chill. Ths
chut ahould bn rubbed with sea ult and
well covered with a light chest protector.
A small cupful of milk taken In the morning before getting up, will give strength.
Plain, ouily digested food is the best, tho
meat should be tender, fish and game should
be eaten |in season. Lemonade and lime
juice witb meals is very refreshing.

native came up, Knowing that the old
gentleman had been at a cannibal feut,
which /ru being held in the neighborhood,
Mr. Chalmers uked him what he wanted.
Tho native intimated that he had brought
a present for "his daughter," u he styled
Mrs. Chalmers and forwith placed on the
ground a small cocoanut basket, and asked
Mis.Chalmors to open it. At Mr. Chalmers'
request, however.thc native himself opeusd
the basket and presented it to Mrs. Chalmers, and it wu found to contain ths breut
of a man. Mr, Chalmers prevailed upon
him to take back the remains. Before the
old native died he became a member of the
Christian church, and remained so up to
his death.

It is not very surprising that a variety of
spellings for the geographic names of China
and Corea are seen every day in the newspapers. When the doctora disagree who
ahall deoide! Baron von Richthofen in his
great work on China laid down rules for tbe
spelling of Chinese words. At an earlier
day the celebrated geographer Kiepert for*
mutated ruloa by whioh he regulated the
orthography of the names on hia 'maps,
Within the put few years the geographers of Loudon, Paris and Berlin have adopted systems of geographic spelling whioh
agree In many details, but by no means
make full use of the principles followed by
Kiepert or von Richthofen. The result is
that anyone who consults the most authoritative atlases is likely to be distracted by
a fine auortraeut of spellings for the ume
Chinese or Corean name. The principles adopted by Kiepert, for instance,
are still more closely applied in his maps
than in other publications. On the Kiepert
maps we see not a few spellings of Chinese
and Corean place names that do not agree
with the spelliuga on the Andree maps,
whioh in the main, follow von Rlchthoten's
rules; and if we turn to that other great
eutnority on all geographic matters, the
"Stieler Hand Atlus," we observe tbat it
differs in many of its spellings from both
the authorities we have mentioned. The
same oonfuslon is seen in English maps.
The broad features of the present system
of geographic orthography in Great Britain
are that vowels shall be pronounced u in
Italian and consonants as in English, and
that "the true sound of the word as locally
pronounced shall be taken as the basis of
spelling." There are, however, two difficulties in the way of applying these rules
with uniform results in the oue of the
geographic names we are considering. The
first of theu difficulties was discussed lut
year by Dr. W. Koppen In his pamphlet
"Die Sohreibung Geographiaeher Natnen,"
in whioh he justly criticised the present official systems of spelling as based upon only
a slight regard for the doctrine of sound,
and u using the words "hard" and "soft"
in many different sensos. The result is
confusing to the person whn tries to apply
the rules ; and thus orthographical differences are fostered by the very systems devised to secure uniformity.
The other difficulty is to give " tho true
sound of the word u locally pronounced,"
A great many of theu names of cities,
towns and so on aro mode up of words in
common um. Thus, Peking means the
Capital of the North ; Hoanghal, the Yellow Sea; Shang-hai, the Upper Sea ; and
Pei-ho, the White River. Metchnikov in
his Lauguage Map of China shows eleven
principal dialects spoken in the nineteen
provinces of China proper. There Is a
considerable admixture of people speaking
different dialects, particularly in the oout
regions, and the pronunciation of geographic
names recorded by a foreigner too often depends upon the particular native group with
which he confers. There is the further difficulty that the Chinese pronunciation usually seems vague and indecisive to Americans or Europeans, who are continually
struggling, ub Rectus remarks, to distinguish
between I, m, and b, between h and p, between ien ian, and between an and in. We
do not believe that uniform spelling of
these geographic names will ever bo scoured
until the whole matter la referred to a
committee of competent Orientalii-U whoso
dictum u to the proper local pronunciation
and tbe best phonetic representation of it
shall be accepted by geographers. Suoh a
solution of the problem is now seriously
discussed by some of the leadiug geographers of Europe.
The Seven Wonders of Corea
Corea, like the world of tho ancients,
hu its "seven wonders." Brinfly stated,
they are as follows:���First, a hot mineral
spring near Kin-Shantoa; tho healing properties of which are believed by the people
to be miraculous. No matter what disease
may afflict the patient, a dip in the water
proves efficacious. The second wonder is
two springs, situated at a considerable distance from each other; in fact, they have
the breadth of the entire peninsula between
them.   They have two peculiarities���when
one is full the other is always empty; and,
notwithstanding the faot that they are
connected by a subterranean passage, one
is bitter ami the other pure and sweet. The
third wonder is a oold wave oave���a cavern
from whioh a wintry wind perpetually
blows. The force of the wind from the
cave is suoh thata strong man cannot
stand before it. A forest that oannot be
eradicated is the fourth wonder. No matter
what injury is done to the roots of the
trees, which are large pines, they will
sprout up again directly, like t he phoenix
from her uhes. The fifth Is the most wonderful of all. It is the famous "floating
stone." It stands, or seems to stand, in
front of the palace erected in its honor.
It is an irregular oube of great bulk, It
appears to be resting on tho ground, free
from supports on all sides; but, strange to
uy, two men at opposite cuds of a rope
may pus it under the stone without encountering any obstacle whatever. The
sixth wonder is the "hot stone," wbioh,
from remote ages, hu lain glowing with
heat on the top of a large hill. The seventh
and lut Corean wonder is a drop of the
sweat of Buddha. For thirty paces around
the temple In which it is enshrined not a
blade of grass will grow. There are no
trees or flowers inside tho sacred square.
Even the animals decline to profane a spot
so holy.

Kates of insurance here are in certain

sociations, and those of our cjtizens interested in the town should meet an organize
for the purpose of acquiring the necessary lands, clearing, fencing, and managing the same for the public benefit.
There is plenty of land suitable for the
put pose within reasonable distance which
could be obtained cheaply, perhaps without cost, for cemetery purposes. We
have a town of about 1500 inhabitants
and without any provision having yet
been made for the dead, if we except the
Chinese and Japs.
It is true burial lots can be obtained
in the two cemeteries in the Settlement,
but this makes unnecessarily burdensome
the expenses of the enterment of the
dead. It must also be said that the cemeteries referred to arc utterly unfit for ihe
use to which they have been devoted.
The land is undrained, and so wet that
the graves are ordinarily half filled with
water before the coffins are lowered into
them. That such a state of things should
have been permitted to exist so long is a
disgrace to the district. Let the public

and organize an association that shall
enable us to pay a decent respect for our
dead.   Who will start the ball moving?
The demand frbm the country parts of
the Province is for the enactment of what
may be denominated A Small Debts
Act. There is ho machinery for the collection of small debts outside of the cities.
It is true the County Court meets for a
day at Comox Bay once in a few months,
but as a rule we are compelled to --o to
Nanaimo to enforce our legal demands,
Tins entails large expense and loss of
time not only to litigants but upon witnesses as well; all of which amounts to a
denial of justice.
The old act which was repealed became odious because jurisdiction was
given to the justices of thc peace, many
of whom were incompetent. It is pro
posed that the new act shall confere jurisdiction on stipendiary magistrates only,
who shall be appointed where required.
If there is any other portion of the civilized globe where the means of collecting
small debts are so inadequate as in this
Province, we are not advised of it. It is
time this reproach upon our institutions
was removed. The government will be
strongly petitioned from this section for
the enactment of a suitable law upon the
subject, and we trust that the people in
other parts of the Province will unite
with us in securing the necessary legislation.
