Horse Drowned.
Monday, while Mr. A. McKelvey'a
hired man was trying to break a valuable
young horse for his master, thc horse in
some way got its shoulder bone out of its
socket. Following a common custom,
the hired men drove it into the river
where it would have to Move its legs to
swim, and would naturally force the bone
back into its proper place. Thc plan
did net work, so the man jumped on ihe
horse's back and forced it out into the
deep water. Here the home made a
lunge and its rider slipped forward on
its neck bringing its head under water
with th? result thai il was drowned.

"We preferred the overland route, and
of course the easist one at that; so tak-
xrf^'S friend, or rather being taken by a
friend (which is better) we rode over to
Union and there mounted the engine as
it moved out with a long line ofwell filled i-fi:d cars. Union is 490 feet above
the sea level, so that in a distance of 11 ,'i
miles to thc wharf it will readily be seen
was a down grade of a pretty decided
character. But the curve eased the
grade and made the descent safe as it is
manifestly easy. The distance the en-
lire way is through tbe forest, but was
nevertheless deeply interesting, although
the field of vision was narrow. The time
had been well chosen. The day was almost perfect. It was middle m October
and the leaves all showed the artistic
touch of fall. The principle trees were,
of course, the firs with lheir upper portion
robed in dark green, but enough of these
had been cul away to make room for the
maple, and small bushes which seemed
to vie with each other in variety of foliage. There were here and there clusters, with the individual members some
in yellow, r-ome in brown, some in
green, and some in vermiilion, while the
intermediate shades found appropriate
place. It was a constant delight to watch
these natural bouquets which everywhere
abounded ancl which no art could equal,
and which were so deversified in size,
form and character.
Thc Trent River was a surprise A
few miles this side of ihe great wharf it is
reached. Its waters come pouring down
from the mountains, hidden away by the
forest, and in their mad rush to reach the
Gulf they have ploughed up a furrow,
where the track ctosses, deep and abrupt
as a mountain gorge. It is a veritable
canon, and as wc pass over we look down
upon the tops - f tall trees growing on its
narrow banks, which seem but small
shcots, or young sprouts.
On the opposite side of the stream is
the house of the section boss, a most picturesque and romantic location. We fear,
ns wc looked at it, that we were not en-
tiiely free from envy. But we did not
slop and soon reached
Union Wharf
under thc approach of which were many
U.-uanull ions ol coal. It is saici an incline plain with a railway track upon it,
will be erected, so as to elevate this coal
where it cau be dumped in vessels when
il is needed.
The wharf is a tremendous concern
being 1600 feet long and 30 feet above
high water. No bunkers are needed, as
the coal cars are moved along the wharf,
and lheir contents dumped directly into
the receiving vessels. The company's
improvements at this point must run into
ihc hundred thousands. Almost any
time a vessel or steamer may be seen
here loading coal, and sometimes as
many as three are anchored in the "offing.'' The San Mateo and her mate are
engaged in carrying coal to San Pedro
fur the use ofthe Southern Pacific. Coal
is shipped from here to Honolulu, to Mex
1icao ports,, supplied to both American
vessels and British Warships, while it is
a favorite place of call for coaling for
the Alaska steamers. But this is only a
part, and the demand is (.onslantly increasing owing lo (lie confessedly superior quality of thc coal. It is intended to
establish coke ovens here. Coke as may
not be generally known, is made from thc
slack of coal, and this may be gotten out
of the way by bringing it in cars to this
point, then made into coke and it is already al the wharf for* shipment. This
industry will, iu connection, with the
shipping, naturally create a town here,
where llie harbour is onc of the largest
and best mi the coast. But in addition
to ihi*. it is au open .secret that thc Company have fur some lime been desirous
of finding suitable iron ore for smelting
purposes. That such ore abounds along
the coast and in the adjacent mountains
is well known. The project is believed
to be to build the smelter here at Baynes
Sound where the coke can be so
easily produced. Willi a smelter here
will naturally come, various iron manufactures which arc alwayA carried on in
a most exten- Ivc scale A glance at the
possibilities of the situation is sufllceni to
set one dreaming and in thc wonderful
land whither that carrUfl us, there are
no limitations.
The Nelson House.
Wc now lake a walk down the new
road to Howe's. The distance is about
half a mile, not far hack from the beach,
and through a second growth of trees
which line the way and between which
on the left hand side as you go down,
the bright sheen ofthe Gulf watns gleam
brightly. In a few minules we reach an
opening in the midst of which stands the
Nelson House It is a noble structure,
38 by S3 feel, two Store vs in height, with
cottage roof. Without stopping to look
through it then wc yielded at ihe entreaty
of our stomach nnd passed Into the dinning room where wc enjoyed a most
substantial meal. That over we looked
over the building. Taking thc first
storey, we come naturally to tlie bar room
It is iiS by 22��� a corner room, connect*
ing with that is a billiard room of mme
si/e, now- being used as a store until a
new building lor lhat purpose sliall be
erected. The dining room is 22 by 28
tike all the rooms splendidly lighted.
Then there is a siaing room 10 by 13;
kitchen, 16 by ly, wltll a pantrv off of 11
6 by l6| wash mom, hall, etc. In Ihc
BCCond Storey arc Q rooms, large, airy
and nice'y furnished. Let us take a look
frum the front window. We are back
only a little way from where the waves
lave the shore. Beyond the two miles
of water expanse is Denman Island, and
right ovei il stream up like turrets the
toll peaks of the Cnscade Range on thc
Malnfand, Around !���> the left is Texada,
and around slill farther the eye rests on
Nub Mill, h i-. a fine view, and doubtless the place will bo a popular resort -
gnid fishing, scenery,  huniing,  rowing,
etc. and oniy iwHo and n fourth to
Garvin's Famous Spring.
Our friend,R. Sanderson,who was cortrac
tor for building the Nelson House, and
who appears to ha\e faithfully performed
his work, kindly pilotticl us. We passed
a mile or so along the trail through the
woods on a line parallel with lhe beach
and two or three rods in from it, and
then made a bee line up the hill until wc
reached a knoll on which the trees stood
back at a respectful distance, and seemed
to say,"Here is the spring " The water
bubbled out of the ground underneath
the root of a tree which presented an
iron rust color. 1 here was a heavy
scum where the water had been standing
but poking that aside the water was as
clear as crystal and delightfully cool. It
is soft to'the touch and should be splendid to bathe in. Like most mineral waters you don't like it at first, but my guide
Mr. Sandeson, assured ine that one soon
grew to like it. We are quite aware that
many hereabouts appear to pui po faith
iu this spring but for no better reason
than that it is near home. We can see
no reason why a valuable sanitarium
should not be established here. The analysis of the water warrants this conclusion, and those who live near and who
have tried or are acquainted with those
who have used, these waters speak very
highly of them. Making all due allowance for any extravagance of the claims
of th��" owner, wc still think that the
doubters will wake up someday to a knowl
edge ofthe fact that this water is accepted as valuable. The point some times
made that there is no strong distinctive
element in it like lythia is not well taken.
The Eureka springs, Arkansas, appear
to have no particular mineral quality of
any kind, and yet that waler is a great
dissolvent and by carrying off thc waste
and other injurious matter from the system, is turning nut to be a veritable elixir

Minor   Observations,
Passsing back we were told that Mr. J
B. Holmes had sold some tots near the
Nelson House lately, and that a two
story residence will shortly go up on one
of ihem. Wc also learned lhat an effort
to establish a posl-nf-ficc at the store will
be made and it ought to succeed. They
are also alive to the necessity of a road to
connect with Courtenay and would like
to see it extend down past Fanny Bay to
French Creek. With an outlet such as
the road named would give them, this
place would advance by "leaps and
Arrived at the wharf we found the
train ready to take us bark. It was Saturday night; and we missed the handsome face of O'Handley, the brakeman.
He had procured a canoe and was making his way across to the island opposite.
"Perhaps you noticed," said the jolly
engineer, "some difference between thc
apparel ofthe brakeman and that of the
fireman and engineer."
We told him wc had noticed that the
brakeman wore a stiff felt hat".
"Well that" said he with a merry twink
le m his eye",is only since he commenced
making those Saturday night visits to
Denman Island".

He's addressed by this thing.

At first I kept quite cool,
Until, my  temper lost,  1   said

I'd   scoot and  dissappear.

The question has been asked whether
Mr. Urquhart appealed from the first action of ihe judges in thc.Jersev bull a-
ward. The answer is tnat he at once
filed a formal protest with the secretary,
but that the first and only notice from
the judges lhat that officer received was
the awiird as'it was published. The protest was withdrawn by Mr. Urquhart
shortly after the report was received from
the judges. We hope not to refer to this
matter again.

Your correspondent in writing about
the outing lhe oiher day on Union lake
on ihe new steamer, evidently was not
conversant with the bear hunt which
formed a part of the programme. The
steamer landed at the head ofthe lake.

anxious tn get a shot at a bear, and it
was understood that the place of liititl'iig
was thc Home of Hears aod that |t was
very probable that some of them wonld
be about. In a short time Supt. Little
pointed out a bear whicli cootv sat upon
its haunches but a few rods off as if a-

Oost of Growing Wheat-
The actual cost of growing a few acres of
wheat, aay enough to make the bread for a
family, in greater than Ii the costof growing
it on a Urge scale. The expensive Investing maohinery now used tu the West cannot be afforded by the farmer who grows
only two or three or half a dozen acres. If
other farmer* in the neighborhood will grow
wheat and co-operate they may purchase a
harvester to be used in common, or they may
hire the work done, which is generally, the
better way, though it cobIs more per acre
than it does the woBtern fanner who growB
enough to keep a harvesting machine employed early and late through the harvest
Mason. Nor ia it easy to get amall jobs of
wheat aa cheaply threshed as the large fa rm-
er can do. The thresher will not set down
his machine unless there ia at loast half u
day's work. He muat have pay for the extra
labor involved iu removing hia machine and
���team engine to many places instead of to
law. The large jobB are contended for by
threshers, and the competition to get them
almost ruinous.|\Ve have heard ofljobs being
let at lump rates where the thresher received barely ft rent or one and a half cents per
bushel. Small joba often cost with labor \2
to 15 cents per bushel. In f Act, moat very
���mall lota of wheat are usually threatied with
the flail in winter, the threaher making
very small wages, hut  better than   lying
Tho question is often askod why small
farmers do not grow more wheat. The
reason U that they can generally put their
laud to better ubcb aud Ymy bread cheaper
than they can make it. A wheat crop brings
now not moro than ��30 per aero, and generally much lesa, There ore crops of small
fruits, potatoes and1 some garden vegetable-i
that bring larger roturns. To hesuro, they
demand more labor, hut that is all right so
long us they pay for It. One of the difficulties of extensive wheat growing la that
by this exhaustive crop a few men may
destroy the fertility of a large area very
quickly. Growing crops that require more
labor, cultivation is restricted to the amount
of land that can lie properly fertilized.
If wheat cultivation is to be extended in
localities where it has not lately boen
grown, it is important that no illusive ideas
ai to the profit of growing wheat be indulged in. Most of those who fitture carefully concede that low as wheat now is
they get little or uo direct profit from the
wheat, Tbey can, however, in the East
���ell the straw for something, or usb it aa
rough feed with grain and lina��od or cottonseed meal. The wheat sowing and cropping
can be easily managed by a tanner who
employs a large force engaged in growing
other and better paying crops. Wheat is
one of the best crops to seed the land with
timothy sown in the fall, or with clover
���own in the spring. For these reasons, as
an incidental crop, it will continue to be
grown hy those who concede that, except
iu theae indirect ways, it is not profitable.
Horticultural Hints-
Orchards should not be neglected at thia
season, if one has a true aye to the interest
of noxt year's crops. Every tree that is
allowed to be overloaded with fruit is thereby injured and thia ia the time to observe
and mark suoh for future pruning. Those
who follow shipping fruit as a businesa must
learn this thinning process thoroughly he-
fore they have any grounds to hope for
success, The character of tho fruit olfored
for sale often tells tho whole story of due
attention, or slip'shod methods.
The trained eye and taste are seldom deceived, unless, indeed, the bottom of the
basket or crate tells tho story later, and
upon this momentary or lusting success depends. Do not be afraid of thinning out
too severely, or in refusing to spend time
and money marketing anything but tho best
of any produce.
It is not often a matter of dispute now.
among persons of any reasonable degree of
information and experience, about tho advisability of cultivating growing trees, jusl
aa vegetables are nourished ; for it is evident to those wlm have tried both ways,
that those worked about grow twice as fast
when there is a sufficient aupply of manure
furnished as those which are neglected.
Young pear orchards will he subject to
blight if too heavily manured and deeply
cultured, but both in moderaticn are not
In orchards where trees have attained
their growth, sod may ba allowed, but it
should be kept mown and not permitted to
grow in great bunches about the trunk.
When cultivated, koop tho soil looso during warm weather, but as tho crops and
trees mature it ia well to only scrape down
the weeds to prevent seeding.
When old trees are two close as is of ton tho
case, cut out some rather than prune,
pruning eventually results in moro rapid
growth. Aa to fertilizing material one must
know the soil with which they deal or tho
business will he too expensive for profit.
It is said that as a rulo the commercial
fertilizers which contain acid phosphate of
lime, nitrate of potash and sulphate of limo
are good for young trees.
Read, think, experiment, instant in and
out of season, and you will come across a
large measure of auccesa,and as the children
���ay "bushels and bushels of nice things"���
real life-giving pleasures.
Points of Good Oow*
At tha October meeting of the liritish
Dairy Farmers' Association, the English
Guernsey Cattle Association offered two
champion cups for the best udders developed in cows and heifera of that breed.
The considerations that wero to guide tho
judges were size and shape of the udder
and position of the teats, together with tho
actual milk yield���-the two conditions being deemed inseparable for highest honors,
and which would prevent a large, fleshy
body, producing but little milk, gaining a
prize over one possessing moro real value
At the meeting referred to a matured cow
in milk and a yearling heifer of tha ftiiorn-
sey breed were the recipients of the prizes.
No single factor of tho dairy cow equals in
importance that of tho proper form and
natural consistency of the uddar, and parts
contrlbntary thereto, and if overy other
desirable qualification bo present in breed,
constitution, proper form, strong digestive
powers, and even inherited dairy ability,
if the udder is defective in shape, size
or other qualities of acknowledged value,
the cow oan never rank as first-class of her
kind. This movement in England appears
to be a new one and in the right direction.
A good udder is tho first consideration in
a dairy and the most obvious one. As an
exchange says: No subject is more worthy
of the attention of tho men who prepare
the premium lists for State and County
fairs ; generous prizes in tho dairy classes
Bhould be offered tor cows and boilers with
well-developed, good shaped udders, furnished with teats to match, thus giving an
incentive to the breodor for striving after
honors that will not only rendor his stock
more valuable intrinsically, hut which will
contribute substantially to hia reputation
as a breeder of dairy cattle of the highest
type. It ta not necessary to tha practiced
aye to wait until tho cow becomes mature
and her parts fully developod to determine
whether her udder will lie of tho right sort,
and her teats properly adjusted and of
good size. These thinga aro indexed at an
early ftge, und the promises of the heifer at
one year old seldom mislead tho exporieuo

Fall Feeding Hog*
Every farmer should begin to food his
hogs by the first of September, as it is
much easier to fatten then in warm weather
than in cold, besides early pork mostly
brings the highest prices in market. From
the present indications pork will command
aa high prices this fall us last, therefore
every farmer should uso all the facilities in
hia power to fatten them as soon as possible.
The growth of hogs should tie made aa rapid as possible during warm wuather. It
should be remembered by every pork raiser
that a given amount of feed will produco
larger reaulta in summer than iu winter. In
winter a larger amount of vitality Is expended in resisting the cold, and, therefore,
an increase of feed ia required to sustain
the system in a healthy condition.
At firat feed lightly of grain, t'.ive them
all the pumpkins, squashes and roots they
will eat. If other teed is scarce, let the
farmer commence cutting up green corn for
hiB hoga by the first, of August, or even
earlier, It will he economy to do so, rather
thau let them go without it till it ia ripe
and then feed it to them. If you wish to
fatten your pork rapidly, do not give
great quantities of rich food, grain, otc.
at once but aivts regular feed of a small
quantity until you give what you think
they will cat up clean ; hut as soon as they
leave any feed in their trough you should
not feed them again uutil they havo finished eating up their breakfast or dinner, as
the case may he, when you may give them
a rattier diminished Bupply, leaving them
apparently hungry at meal time to eat with
relish what is given to thom. Too much
feed at the enm-nencement ol fattening is as
bad for swine aa improper food, a stunted
growth being the noticeable result in both,
and any breeder of experience knoWB that
it costs almost as much, if not more, to
fatten a stunted hog than it is worth.
By the middlo of September tho fattening
process ahould bo commenced in good earnest, and the work completed bofore severe
weather sots iu, as tho rulo, wo believe,
that whoto hogs are kept in open lots without shelter, as mo3t aro, two bushola of
corn will lay on moro fat in October than
three bushels will in January. If you feed
corn on tho car, he sure to have a good, dry
pon or lot to feed it in. Many farmers will
throw corn to their hogs iu a wot, filthy
pon, where they stand in mud up to their
knees. It is more than half wasted before
they oat it, and what thoy do oat does not
do muoh good if they do not have a comfortable place to aleep in.

If you propose to make the raising of
stock of any Bort a profitable businesa you
must first give attention to grass culture.
There must be not only rich meadows and
pastures that aro good in spring and early
summer.hiil these latter must bo noodod with
suoh a variety of grasses that thoy will
yield fresh horbage throughout tho season.
Abuse ia often heaped upon horses that ia
not intended by the owner. It generally
comes iu the form of neglect.
Seedy toes, rimmed hoofs and shelly feot
owe more of their conditions to hotshoe fitting than ia suspected. Better a horse
with a natural foot, however ugly, than a
foot frizzled and cut to shape by an unscientific blacksmith, nay-ran exchange.
One of the usual preventives of a horse
wounding his lege, ia the so-called boot.
Tha only useful one is nude of kersey, or
strong, thick cloth, with strong leather
placed outsido where the horae hits. Boots,
such as race horses wear, are easily kept iu
their place, because of their peculiar mako,
and tho leg boing fiat,preventa tholr moving.
But guards for the ankles aro a groat plague,
especially tho ordinary round pad which
only covers more or loss of tho inside if the
ankle. If it is put on tight enough to koop
stationary, ita tension ou the joint to a
certain degreo imp ides its pliability ; if left
more loose it gets out of place and chafes by
friction and the dirt getting between the
atrapa that fasten them and the leg. Theso
straps are usually mado simply of leather.
Tho improved and much more expensive
appliances for preventing the horso from
wounding hia limba are freo from the objectionable features of the common strap.
A Woman Writer.
When Mrs, Amelia Barr, a successful
novolist, began to write she was ''."* yeara
old, had passed from affluence to poverty,
and was far boyond the ago for training
one's Bclf to work. Sho decided to find a
livelihood in literary pursuits. Equipped
with a letter to Mr. Bonner, of the 1
York Lodger, alio camo to that city. He
became interested in tho brave littio woman
and gave her a chance. Then camo the
drudgory which moat successful writers go
through'nt a much earlier age. Mra. Barr
wrote advertisements, circulars,paragraphs,
versoa���anything and evorything. Nhe
spent houra' daily in tho Astor Library,
studying literature as a craft and getting
materials for descriptiva and historical
stones. Sho was rich Ifa $10 note stood
botwoon hor und utter poverty. When she
had a fow paper dollars they wore placed
in an old Bible, which,with itayellow,loaves
and tarnished clasps, still lies on Mrs, Barrs
table. One night thiovas broke in and stole
ovorything they could lay thoir hands on.
They went through the desk, taking tha
trinkets it contained, hut tha llihlo, whicli
lay near it, and in which was whatever of
worldly wealth the family possessed, waa
loft untouched. It had proved a more secure cash box than a safo would havo boen.
The strain of seeking a living cased a little
when Mrs. Burr's firat serial atory appearod,
and when '��� Jan Veddor'a Wife" came out
the tide of fortune waa distinctly rising.
Unlike most literary people, Mrs. Barr
haa a vory shrewd business instinct. Wit'
ness thc following anecdote :���A firm once
engaged to pay her $16,000 for the serial
right of a story on receipt of the manuscript.
The novel waa promptly dolivered. The
cash waa not. Tho firm askod fora briof
delay. Shrewd Mra. Barr, who believes
that " a bargain is a bargain," granted the
lelay on condition that the firm pay her 10
por cent, for tho loan of tho ?15,000 until
paid. This rather staggered the publishers,
nut they agreed, and Mrs. Barr continues
on tho most friendly terms with tho firm.

���(Soptombor Bt, Nicholas.
Hiram Downs' farm lay at the foot of tho
mountains, His two older boys, Klisha
and Benny, eighteen and sixteen yeara old
respectively, had cleared off a piece of
woods up the hilt, and planted it in corn.
The new, fresh fertile soil pushed the crop
ahead so that by oaring time, about tho
first of September, there was no such field
of corn in all that country.
Hiram Downs was both lame and lazy,
Ho did not like to work hard, but he was
good at bossing. He had been hurt tho
spring before, and hadn't done a stroke of
real work all summer.
Ono day ho want through that piece of
corn. It waa magnificent. He worked his
way through, admiring the tall stalks and
heavy ears, till ho approached the forest,
whore thc corn waa not so good. Hero ho
made a discovery. A bear had heen at-
traoLod from the deep forest of the mountains, and was evidently imduq daily feaats
at the boya'expense. Several square ��uJn
of tho corn had boen broken down, uprooted, and the ears eaten.
Mr. Downs hastened back to where tho
boys were at work, and informed thom of
the situation.
" Boars 1" exclaimed both boys in blank
astonishment. " Why 1" stammered Klisha
-' I didn't suppose there was one on the
" Mebbe ye wouldn't 'nless ho carried ye
olF," grumbled his father. " Whon l'a yonr
ago, Liaha, I didn't have to bo told when
there was a bear round. Boys had somo
sprawl in thom daya, I kin tell yer: You
might juit as w?ll not raise tho Bluff as to
let tho hears eat it up 1"
Mr. Downa went off growling, and tho
boys went to work, but discussed tho hear
business between themselves. Finally
Benny recollected that his Undo Bon, in
Blotniliehl, had promised to let him havo
Ida Winchester rifle aa soon as ho waa old
enough to uao it. With that and their
father's old shot-gun, they thought they
would not bo afraid to watch for the bear
at night. The rifio was Bent for, aud,
due timo, camo hy tho coach.
After supper that evening, Klisha brought
out his gun and ammunition.
"Just the night for muakrata, after tho
moon is up," he explained craftily, taking
care, however, thnt no one observed the extraordinary charge of powder nnd buckshot
or the cloth-covered ball which completed
the load.
But the muskrats " swashed" undisturbed through tho sluggish waters of tho
meadow creeks, while tho two boys stole
out of sight behind the barn and hastened
away to the hiding place which they had
already selected behind one of the great log
hoaps at tho odgo of the wooda.
From thia poaition they comm andod
view of the narrow uncultivated strip for
some distance in either directon. Hero thay
waited for the moon to rise higher nnd dispel the confusing shadows of the forest,
which, with tho thin stratum of smoke
hanging motionless n the calm atmosphere,
effectually concealed evon the nearest stump
in the space bofore them.
It was aoon apparent that bears wero not
tho only despoilera of tlio luckless corn-piece.
At short intervals, the plaintive child-like
cry of a coon arose from the depths of the
hemlock awamp below, oach time a littio
nearer, until finally Bonny fancied he could
hear it scurrying through the brush a few
roads down tticclcarmg.
"Wonder if there's anything olso wants
to help cat this corn?" grumbled Klisha;
"bet yo there's a wholo family of coona down
thoro now; we'll tend to their caso next,
though, if the hears don't show up.
But neither bears nor any other thing
appearod to disturb th** almost oppressive
silenco and loneliness of the place, nnd as
timo passed tho monotonous waiting woro
heavily upon tha patience of tho silent
watchers. Klisha, already wearied by the
hard work ot the day yielded easily to the
drowsy influence, but Benny's acute senses
were strained to tho highest pitch.
Aa the moon rose higher scudding clouds
drifted across tho sky, obscuring its light
at times while little puffs of wind whirled
down over tho tree tops and sot tho corn
leaves rustling in momentary agitation.
Then tho smoke in ghostly spirals, waa
whisked away into the upper air, and with
a clear view Benny scanned the open apace
intently while hia brother atill nodded.
Softly as the breeze hail corns it added
greatly to the uncertainty by creating a
multitude of confuaing sounds, yot, aa time
passed, almost unconsciously, he found
himself listening for the repetition of a
peculiar crackling noise, issuing apparently
from the corn behind them.
Presently, between the gusts, he hoard it
more distinctly and hastily aroused his
dozing companion.
-��� Wake up, Lull, chore's something in
the corn."
" Yet*, coons," mumbled Klisha, blinking
sleepily ; then, noticing the other's excito-
ment, he added, "D'ye soo anything?"
" No, but I think thoro's something out
n the middlo of tho piece j Bounds like a
hog champing."
Klisha waa skeptical, believing that a
largo animal would necessarily have caused
mora disturbance.
Tell ye what, Bonny," ho proposed
after listening vainly for the suspicious
sound. "Swap guns and I'll crawl down
thero and see about it; 'twon't do for both
of us to go; hears \\ bo almost sure to
come in while we were away."
Beuuy exchanged his rille tor the unreliable shotgun, and, with considerable
trepidation, watched his brother disappearing in the obscurity of the corn rows.
With a boy's love of adventure, Benny
had entered the affair enthusiastically and
up to this point had conducted himself
with the coolness ofa veteran. Now, however, with none of the boundless confidence
which he had experienced in the possess! *m
of the rifle, his courage vanished with tho
| retreating form of hia brother.
Boforo lie had longed eagerly for the ap-
pearanCB of a boar, hoping that by good
fortune it might enter the clearing cloae to
their ambuscade; now hia heart leaped
with suffocating swiftness when the black,
shapeless stumps gained sudden life in the
shifting light, and tinuaud again he sprang
u*. to fly in sudden terror as spiteful gusts
of wind swept down with a crashing of
branches, like the swift rush of some hugo
creature through the forest.
Not a sound came back from the corn-
piece, although ho listened in breathless attention, almost hoping for the report of the
riilo���anything to break the long vigil
whioh, in his nervous, high-strung condition, seemed an eternity of suspense.
At lost, utterly unnerved, he deserted his
post and crept back iuto tho corn, preferring to bravo the ridicule of his brother
rather than endure another minute of auch
At firat he moved cautiously, parting the
stalks with hia handa and peering eagerly
among the shadows between thu rows for
tho familiar figure of Klisha.
Groaning row after row, he bogan to
realize the almost hetplou nature of hiB
task. Many times he hurried forwarrt,cei-
tain of success, only to find that a stump
had tricked him iu tlio deceptive light.
Then growing impatient, ho plunged
ahead in greater haste until, deep in the
center of tlie piece, darkness settled aliout
him as tbe moon shot in behind a mass of
flying clouds.
Almost crying witn vexation, ho stopped
in helpless perplexity, still resisting the
impulse to attract hiB brother's attention
by shouting, which woukl of course imperil
tho success of their undertaking.
The gloom lighten**! briefly, and in that
instant hii oyes foil upon a moving figure
stealing abng down the rows beforo him.
It was Klisha at lost, and with joyful
haste ho dashed away in pursuit.
Hia bare feet fell swift and noiseless in
the powdery soil and, for a wonder, no
stump obstructed his flight, although the
sharp, saw-like edges of corn leaves swished
terribly across his face.
A few yards short of tho slowly moving
figure, which had grown strangely bulky,
he hailed it with a loud, tremulous whisper.
The response, a hnaky "wouf," brought
the terrified boy to an abrupt standstill,
with a strange, prickling sensation creeping
over his body to the very roots of his hair,
which fairly bristled under his slough hat,
aa the dark figure suddenly turned and
theu roso between the stalks, venting his
surprise in a curious whistling snort.
A flood of moonlight illumined tho scene,
and poor Bonny, numb with horror, gazed
with straining eyea upon the grotesque figure of a bear, its jaws still bulging with
half-husked ears of corn,
To save his life, the boy could not have
Btirred hand or foot. In that critical moment every muscle in his body became set
and rigid.
He was dimly conscious of a sudden disturbance in the corn and tho approach of
swift yet stealthy footsteps in his rear but
even a warning "Imt I" tailed to rouse him
until a firm hand rested on his shoulder and
his brother's voice whispered close to his

Benny never really know whether he aC'

only of raising the weapon hy a tremendous

Strange Phenomenon.
A curious phenomenon is roported from
Rarbotan-lea-Bains, in the department of
tho Cera. About forty years ago the country was marahy. The land, however, was
drained, and is now well cultivated. Some
months ago smoke waa soen issuing from
the aoil, and it was at first supposed that
these emanations were caused by the intense
heat. However, tho evaporations, whioh
still continue, are now believed to bo
produced by firo. Tho old marshes contained a stratum of peat several metres in
depth, and the opinion is entertained that
it ignited during the high temperature
which prevailed during March, and that it
has heon burning over sinco over an area of
nearly (10 hectares. Tho conflagration is
steadily spreading, and is making its way
in the direction of tha village and tho pine
foresta. Operations nave been commenced
with a view to preventing further mischief,
and deep treuchos are being dug all round
thesceuo of this extraordinary phenomenon,
Eternal Fame.

uneas of the students, " Bodily
ailment,1' she aaid, " cannot help but have
ita effect on the mind. In order to keep the
miud bright and active and porfoctly clear
at all times, the itudent's condition must be
as nearly perfect as possible. Some time
ago there was mora or loss ailment notice*
ablo among the sisters and students, whioh
waa probably duo to atmospheric causes,
though of courao I do not know just what
iu origin really was. Shortly after thia bocame noticeable a friend hiah'y recommended a medicine called Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale Peoplo and bo urged upon ma
to give them a trial that I ordered some of
them, and they have been need in tho institution ever aince. A fow days ago tho
manufacturers wrote mo for an opinion of
Pink Pills, and my reply waa aa follows i
" Rkspbotbd Sins���In answer to your
kind request for our opinion of Dr. Williams' Pink Pilla, are pleased to aay that
these pills woro so highly recommended to
us that wo wore induced tn try them, and
we think our repeated orders for them aro
sullicient evidence that wo find them all
they are represented, a good blood builder
sua an excellent norva tonic,
Yours very reapoctfully,
Sis-rat M. Ami-husk.
Secretary for Siatora of Providence."
Medical   scientists   concede   that   weak
blood and shattered nerves nro the fruitful
cause of nearly every disease to which .human fleah is heir, and if Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills ia, aa Sister Ambrose says lhey havo
found it, " a good blood builder and an excellent nervo tonic," tho sourcu of good
health at St. Mary's is easily traced.
Sister Ambrose said they aro nover without Pink Pills, and that now they order a
gross at a time.
Thia is certainly a very high recommendation for tlie medians, for thero is probably
no class of peoplo that gives more attention
to thc physical health and welfare of ita
members than tho Siaters of Providence, and
they would not uso anything hi which they
did not have unbounded faith.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills aro truly ono of
the greateat medical discoveries of the ago.
Thoy aro the beginning of a more healthful
era, Evory day brings reports of remarkable cures that have resulted from the uao
of this wonderful modicino. In many oases
the goad work has been accomplished after
eminont physicians had failed and pro*
nounced the patient beyond hope of human
aid. An analysis proves that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills contain in a condensed form all tho
elements necessary to give new life and
richness to the blood and restore shattered
ne. vu3. They are an unfailing specific for
auch diseases aa locomotor, ataxia, partial
paralysis, St. Vitus' dance, sciatica, neuralgia, rheumatism, nervous lu-nda ihe, the
aftor effects of la grippe, palpitation of tho
heart, that tired feeling resulting from
nervous prostration; all diseases depending upon vitiated humors in tho blood, such
asscto'ula, chronic erysipelas, otc. They
aro also a specific for troubles peculiar to
females, such as suppressions, irregularities,
and all forma of woakneBS. Thoy build up
tho blood and restore lho glow of health to
pale or sallow cheeks. Ill the caso of men
they effect a radical euro in all cases arising frum mental worry, overwork or excess-

CHAPTER V1II.-(Continubd.)
It wu strange how the Indian girl had
taken on those little manners ol society
whioh convey so much by inflection. She
lifted her eyebrows at Marion, and said
presently, iu a soft, deliberate voice,
"Come, Marion, we will go and aeo little
Richard ; then I shall be happy."
She linked her arm through Marion's.
Marion drummed her fingers lightly on the
beautiful nrm, and then fell to wondering
what sh*. should say next. They passed
into the room where the child lay sleeping;
they went to bis littio lied, and Lali stretch'
ed out her hand gently, touching the curls
of the child. Running a finger through one
delicately, she said, with a still softer tone
than before, " Why should not ouo bo
happy fl
Marlon looked up slowly into her eyes,
let a hand fall on her shoulder gently, ami
replied, " Lali, do you uevor wish Frank
to oome V
Lali'a fingers oame from tho child, the
color mounted slowly to her forehead, and
she drew the girl away again iuto the other
room. Then sho turned and laced Marion,
ft deep firo in hereyes, and said, in a whisper almost hoarse in its intensity,
_.,.   *Yes;I
wish ho would oome to-night."
She looked harderyetat Marion; then,wtih
a flash of pride and her hands --las-pin g before
her, sho drew herself up, and added, " Am
I not worthy to be his wife now ? Am I
not beaut iful���for a savage ?"
Thero was no common vanity in tho action. It had a noble kind of wisttulneas,
. and a soronity that entirely redeemed it.
Marion dated hor own happiness from tho
time when Lali met her aooident, for tho
evening of that disastrous day she issued to
Captain Hume Vidall a commission whioh
he oould never, wished nover to, resign.
Since then sho had boen at her best,���we
are all more or less selfish creatures,���and
she had grown gentler, curbing tho delicate
imperiousness of her nature, and frankly,
and without the least pique, taken a secondary poaition of interest in the household,occasioned by Lali's popularity. She lookod
Lali up and down with a glance in which
many feelings met, and then catching hor
hands warmly,sho lifted them, put them on
hor own shoulders and eaid, " My dear
beautiful savage, you aro fit and worthy to
be Queen of England ; and Frank, when ho
comes     "   "
"Hush I said tho othor, dreamily, and
pat a finger un Marion's lips, " I know
what you are going to say, but 1 do not
wish to hear it.   Ho did uot lovo ine then.
He used me "   Sho shuddered, put her
hands to her eyes with a pained, trembling
motion, then threw her head back with a
quick sigh. " Hut I will not speak of it.
Come, we nre for the dance, Marion.   It.
is the last, to-night.   To-morrow " Sho
paused, looking straight before her, lost in
"Yes, to-morrow, Lali?"
Marion longed to tell her then and there
the groat news, but she was afraid to do so,
and waa, moreover, withheld by lho remembrance that it had beon agreed she should
not be told.   She said nothing.
At eleven o'clock the rooms woro filled.
For the fag eud of the soason, people seemed unusually brilliant. The ovening itself
waa not eo hot ua common, and there was
an extra array of distinguished guests.
Marion was nervousall theevoniug, though
she showed littio of it, being most prettily
employed iu making people pleam d witli
themselves, Mrs. Armour also was not
free from apprehension. In reply to inquiries concerning her son she said, as she
had often said during the season, that he
might bo back at any time now. Lali had
-Answered alwayB in the same fashion, and
had shown no sign that hia continued
absence was singular. As the evening woro
on, the probability of Frank's appearance
seemed less ; and tho Armours began to
breatho more freely.
Frank had, however, arrived. He had
driven straight from Euston to Cavendish
Square, but, seeing tho house lighted tip,
and guests arriving, lie had a sudden feeling
of uncertainty. He ordered the cabman to
take him to his olub. There he put himself
in evening dress, and drove back again to
tho house. He entered qnietly. At the
moment the hall was almost deserted : people were mostly in tho ball-room and
aupper-rooin. He paused a moment, biting
his moustache ub if iu perplexity. A strange
timidity came on him. All his old dash
and self-possession seemed to have forsaken
him. 1'resontly. seeing a number of peoplo
entering tho hall, he made tor the atnircaso,
and went hastily up. Mechanically he
went to his own room, and found it lighted.
Flowers wore set about, and everything
was mado ready as for .a guoBt. He sat,
down, not thinking, hut dazed. Glancing
up, lie saw his face in a mirror. It was
bronzed, but it lookod rather old and careworn. Uo shrugged a shoulder at that.
Then, In tho mirror he saw also something
else. It startled him so that he sat perfectly still fur a moment looking at it.
It was someone laughing at him over his
shoulder; a child I He got to his feet and
turned round. On the table was a very
largo photograph ofa smiling child���with
his eyes, his face. Ho caught the chairanr,
and stood looking at it a littio wildly. Thou
ho laughed a strange laugh and the tears
leaped to hla eyes. Ho caught the picturo
in his hands and kissed it,���very foolishly,
men not fathers might think,���and read the
name beneath: Richard Joseph Armour ;
and again, beneath that, tho date of birth.
He then put it back on tho table and sat
looking at it; looking, and forgetting, and
Presently the door opened, and somo one
entered. It was Marion. She had seen him
piss through thu hall; sho had then gono
and told her father aud mother, to prepare
them , and hud followed him upstairs. He
did not bear her. She Stopped softly forward. " Frank," slio said, " Frank,"���and
laid a hand on hianhuiildcr. He started up
and turned liis (aoo on her. Then ho caught
her hand-* and kissed her. " Marion 1" lie
said, and lie could say no more Itut pres-
eutly bn pointed Inwards tho photograph.
Sh" nodded her bead. " Yes, It is your
child, Frank. Though, of course, you don't
deserve it. . . Frank, dear," alio added.
" I am gla,l-wo shall all Im. glad���to have
you bn It; but yon are awloked man." Sbo
felt she must say that.
Now be niily nodded, and still looked at
the portrait. "Whore is my wife J" ho
���deled presently.
"Sho is in lho ball-room. Marion was
Wondering what wus boat to do.
He can ������ lit his thumb-nail in his teeth.
He winced in spite of himself. "I will go
to her," 1.0 said, " and then, tho baby."
"I am glad," she replied, "tl.atyou havo
that much sense of justice loft, Frank : the
wife flrat, iho baby afterwards. Hut do you
think you deserve either!"
Ho became moody, and made an impatient
gesture "Lady Agne? Martling is here,
and also Lady Haldwell," sho persisted
cruelly. Sho did not mind, becauso sho
know ho would have e.iougll to compensate
him afterwards.
" Marion," ho said, " say it all, and lot
me havo it over. Say what you liko, and
I'll not whimper. I'll faeo it. But I want
to soo my child."
She waa sorry for him.   Sho had really
wanted to seo how much ho was capable* of
feeling In tlio matter, "Wait hero, I rank,
sho Baid.    "That will he best; and 1 will
bring your wife to you."
Ho said nothing, but assented With a
motion of tlio hand, and she loft him who/o
he was. He braced himself up for the interview. Assuredly a man loses somothius*
of natural courage and self-confidence whon
ho bas done a thing of which bo should be,
ancl is, ashamed,
It seemed a long timo (it was in reality
but a couple of minutes] boforo the door
opened again, and Marion said, "Frank,
your wifo 1" and then retreated.
Tho door closed, leaving a Btately figure
standing j.ist inside it.   The figure did not
move forward, but stood there, full of life
and fine excitement, but very still also.
Frank Armour was confounded. He came
forward slowly, looking hard. Waa this
distinguished, handsome, reproachful woman his wife���Lali, the Indian girl whom he
had married in a fit of pique and brandy ?
He oould hardly believe his eyes; and yet
her eyes looked out at him with something
that he remembered too, together with
something which he did not remember,
making him uneasy. Clearly his great mistake had turned from ashes into fruit.
" Lali, my wife 1" he said, ancl held out his
She reached out hers courteously, but her
fingers gave bim uo response.
" We have many things to say to eaoh
other," she said, " but they cannot be Baid
now. 1 shall bo missed from the ballroom."
"Missed from the ball-room I" He almost
laughed to think how strange this sounded
in his ears. Ab if interpreting his thought,
Bhe added, " You see, it is our last affair of
the season, and we are all anxious to do our
duty perfectly. Will you go down with
me? Wo can talk afterwards."
Her continued self-possession utterly
confused bim. She had utterly confused
Marion also, whon told that her husband
was in tho house. She had had presentiments,
and, besides, she had been schooling herself
for this hour for a long time. She turned
towards tho door.
���* But," he asked, like a supplicant, "our
child 1 I want to see our ohild.''
She lifted her eyebrows, then, seeing the
photograph of the baby on the table, understood now he knew. "Come with mo, theu,"
she said, with h little more feeling,
Sho led the way through tho hall, and
Eauaed at her door. "Remember that we
ave to appear among the guests directly,"
sho said, as though to warn him against
any demonstration. Theu they entered:
Sho went over to tho oot aud drew back
the fleecy ourtain from ovor the Bleeping
boy's head. His fingers hungered to take
his child to his arms. "He is magnificent 1
magnificent 1" he said, with a great pride.
Why did you nevor let mo know of it?"
"How could I tell what you would do t"
she calmly roplied. "You married me���
wickedly, and used mo wickedly afterwards;
and I loved tho ohild."
"You loved the ohild 1" he repeated after
her. "Lali," he said, "I don't deserve it,
but forgive mo, if you oan���for the oh I Id's
"We had better go below," sho calmly
replied ; "we have both duties to do. You
will of course���appear with ine���before
thom ?"
The Blight irony in the tone out him
horribly. He offered his arm in silence.
They passed into the hall and to the staircase. "It ia necessary," she said, "to appear cheerful before one's guests."
She had him at an advantage at every
point. "We will be cheerful, then," was
his reply, spoken with a grim kind of
humor. "You havo learned it all, haven't
you?" he added.
They were just entering the ball-room-
Yes, with your kind help -and absence,"
bIio replied.
The surprise of the guests was somewhat
diminished by the faot that Marion, telling
General Armour and his wife first of Frank's
return, industriously sent thu news buzzing
about the room.
The two went straight to Frank's father
and mother. Their parts were all excellently played. Then Frank mingled among
tho guests, being very heartily greeted, and
heard congratulations on all sides. Old
club friends rallied him as a deserter, and
new acquaintances flocked about him ; and
firesontly he awakened to the fact that his
nditu wife had been an interest of the
soason, was not tho least admired person
present. It was altogether too good luck
for him t but ho had an uncomfortable con*
viotion that he had a long path of ponanoo
to walk beforo he oould hope to enjoy it.
All at onoe he met Lady Haldwell, who,
in spite of all, still accepted invitations to
General Armour's house���the strange scene
between Lali and herself having never been
disclosed to the family. He had nothing
but bitterness in his heart for her, but he
spoko a few smooth words, and she languidly congratulated him on his bronzed appearance. He asked for a dance, but she
had not one to give him. As she was leaving, she suddenly turned as though she had
forgotten something, and, looking at him,
said, "I forgot to congratulate you on your
marriage. - 1 hope it is not too late."
Ho bowed. " Your congratulations are
an sincere," he said, " that they would be
a proposlate or early."
When ho stood with his wife while the
guests wero leaving, and saw with what
manner sho carried it all off,���as though
sbo had been born in the good land of good
breeding,���he was moved alternately with
wonder and shame,���shame that he had intended this noble creature as a sacrifice to
his ugly temper and spite. When all the
guests were gone and tht family stood alone
in the drawing-room, a silence suddenly
fell among them. Presently Marion said to
her mother in a half-whisper, "I wish Rich,
ard wero here,"
They all felt tho extreme awkwardness
of tho situation, especially when Lali bade
General Armour, Mrs. Armour, and Marion
Sood-night, and then turning to her hue-
and, said, "Good-night,"���sho did not
even speak his namo. "Perhaps you would
care to rido tomorrow morning, I always
go to tho park at ten, and this will bo my
fast rido this season."
Had she written out an elaborate proclamation of her intended attitude towards her
husband, it oould not have more clearly
conveyed her mind than this little speech;
delivered as to a most friendly acquaintance.
General Armour pulled his moustache
fiercely, and, it Is possible, enjoyed the
situation, despite ita peril. Mrs. Armour
turncd-to the mantel and seemed tremulous
ly engaged in arranging somo bric-a-brac.
Marion, howovor, with a fine instinct, slid
hor arm through that of Lali, and gently
said, "Yes, of course Frank will lie glad of
a ride in tho park. He used to rido with
mo ovory morning. But let us go, us throe,
and kiss tho baby good-mght,--'good*night
till we meet In tho morning."' She linked
her arm uow through Frank's and as she
did so ho replied to Lali, "I shall be glad to
ride in the morning, but "
" But wo can arrange it at breakfast,
said his wife, hurriedly.   At lho same timo
sho allowed hotsolf to bo drawn away  to
tlm ball with her husband.
Ho was very angry, but ho knew he had
no right to lie so. He ohoked baok his
wrath, and moved on amiably enough, and
suddenly the fashion in which the tables
had beon turned on him struck him with
its tragic comedy, and he involuntarily
Bmiled. His sense of humor ssved him
fiom words and aots which might possibly
havo mado tho matter a pure tragody after
all.   He loosed hiB arm from Marion's.
" 1 must hid our father and mother good-
night. Theu I will join you both,���'in
tbo court of the king.'" And he turned
and went hack, and said to his father as he
kissed his mother, --1 am had at an advantage, general."
"And serves you right, my boy. You
had the odds with you : she has capturod
tin-in liko a born soldier."
His mother said to him, gently, " Frank,
you blaimod us, but remember that we
wished only your good. Tako my advioo,
dear, and try to love your wife and win
her confidence,"
" Lovo her,���try to lovo herl" ho said,
"I   shall easily do that.    But  the other
 ';"   Ho shook his head a little, though
what ho meant perhaps ho did not know
quite himself, and then followed Marion
and Lali up-staira. Marion had tried to
escape from Lull, but was told that she
must stay j and tho three mot at tho child's
cot. Marion stooped down and kissed its
forehead. Frank stooped aUo and kissed
ita cheek. Thon tho wife kissed tho othor
cheek.   The child slept peacefully ou.
���* You can always seo the baby here before breakfast, if you choose," said Lali;
and Bhe hold out hor hand again in goodnight. At this point Mariou stole away, in
spile of Lali'a quick little cry of " Wait,
Marion 1" and the two wero left alono
"I am very tired," she said. " I would
rather not talk to-night," The dismissal was
evident. He took her hand, held it an instant, and presently said, " I will not detain you, but I wonld ask you, Lali, to remember that you are my wife. Nothing
oan alter that."
Still we   are only   strangers,   as you
know," she quietly rejoined.
" Yon forget tin* days we were together,
after we were married." ho cautiously
"I am not the samo girl: . . . y<*u
killed her. , . . We have io start
again.   ...    1 know alt."
" You know that in my wretched anger
and madness I "
" Oh, pleaso do not speak of it," Bho said,
it is so bad evon in thought."
"But will you never forgive me, and
care for mo?��� we have to live our lives together."
" Pray lot us not speak of it now," she
Bald, in a weary voico; then, breathlessly,
" It is nf muoh more consequence that you
should love me���and tho ohild."
He drew himself up with a choking sigh,
and spread out his arms to her, " Oh, my
wifo I" he said.
������ No, no," sho oriod, " this is unreasonable; we know so little of eaoh othor, . .
Good-night, again."
He turned at the door, came back, and,
stooping, kissed the ohild on tho lips. Then
he said, " You are right. 1 deserve to
suffer.   .   .   .   Guod-night."
But when he was gono she dropped on
her knoes, and kissed the child many times
on the lips also,

Tha New Viceroy of India.
The appointment of a successor to Lord
Linsdowne in the person of General Sir
Honry Wylie Norman, G. C. B��� G. C. M.
G��� C.I, E.,isa great surprise to both
politicians and public. Not so muoh op the
score of military ability, and Indian experience, both of whioh Sir Henry Norman
possesses in the highest degree, but because
no hint of the coming arrangement had
leaked out and because bo many others
were thought to have bettor chances. Indeed the new Viceroy had hardly betn mentioned in connection with this groat blue
ribbon of British appointments. Lord
Brossey, G. C. B., had the ambition and
wealth and ability which would have qualified him for the post, coupled with long
sorvice to the Gladstnnian party. Lord
Wolseley and Lord Roberts were tho men
of all others fitted for the position, if military servico and possible future complications were to bo the basis, and the latter in
particular, had every olaim on the grounds
of Indian experience. But instead, the appointment has gone to a lesser light so far
as fame may be concerned, though one who
occupies none the less a distinguished plaoe
in war and statecraft.
Sir Honry Norman has seen much service.
Entering the Bengal Army in March, 1844,
he has been Adjutant, Brigade-Major, Acting Adjutant*General in India, Aide-de-
Camp tj the Queen, Military Sooretary to
the Government of India, and for seven
years Member of tbo Coun jII of the Viceroy
of India, twice acting aa President during
the absence of the Viceroy. He has also
been a member of the Indian Council in
London, and for five yeara Captain-General
and Governor-in-Chief ot Jamaica, while his
lost position was that nf Governor in
Queensland, to which ne waa appointed In
1H83. Sir Henry was extremely popular
and deeply respected in both Jamaica and
Queensland, colonies governed upon very
different principles and with very different
His military ser/ioes in active warfare
include the Punjaub campaign and Its various battles; six years' fighting and service
on tho Peshawur frontier; the famous
Mutiny, including the slego of Delhi, the
relief and capture of Luckuow, and many
minor actions; and the Southal cam*
paign. It will therefore be seen that,
apart from the possession of three war
medals and six clasps, General Norman
has more than earned his spurs as a
aollicr. But greater than either his military reputation and services, bis Indian experience and able colonial administration,
is tho faot that for years Sir Henry Norman
lias been, what Lord Wolseley or Lord
Roberts never wore, a warm supporter of
Mr. Gladstone upon nearly every subject
which the Grand Old Man has at heart.
Edmund Yatos goes bo far, in a cable letter,
aa to hint at a serious danger in this respect by claiming that General Norman
supports the Premier in "his cautious, not
to say retrograde, policy ou the question
of tho north-west frontier." However, it
is somewhat Idle to speculate upon this
phase of the subject.
Sir Henry Norman has not so far shown
himself incapable of grasping or handling
Imperial questions, and the confirmation of
his appointment as Viceroy of India, as well
as his aubsequont conduct in that exalted
Sosltion, will probably further demonstrate
is military capacity and experience in
Eastern statecraft.

In tho most crowded thoroughfares, as, for
example, on London bridge, or at important
intersecting streets, the policeman stiud*
in the middle ot the roadway. All traffic
is kept ou four Hues, oxactly on tho plan of
the four tracks of tho Central Railroad-
two tracks for light nod swift moving
vehicles, oue for each direction, and two iu
whioh the movoment is slow. Thus blockades seldom occur. When one is threatened,
or travel becomes congested on a cross

signal is flashed back In both directions by
the drivers and all traffic comos to a standstill until the pressure on tho side Btreot is
relieved; when the policeman's hand is

business is resumed. It is now proposed

To drink wino without diluting it with

Rewards were given in India last year
for the slaying of 1*74 tigora, -Mil panthers,

1,000 tigers, 2,000 panthers, 500 bears and
800 wolvos. On the olher hand, wild twists
killed 817 people and 1,200 cattle last year,
and there were 1139 deaths of human boings
from snake bite.
Manners of Children-
Thero are two essentials In good manners,
character, and what we call polish. Id
oharaoter we must bo sincere, self-respecting and most of all, kind; then having
these inherent characteristics we must by
association with others and by training,
learn to express our sincere and kindly
feelings in the most acceptable and agreeable way. Manners should be an expression
of our inner lives, and if our inner lives
have anything of truth and beauty in them
and we have learned to express ourselves
by our words and actions with simplicity
and clearness our manners will be good.
Good manners are not peculiar to any one
favored class, thev are fundamental in hu
manity and are found in all races, even
among thoso we call barbarians ; they are
always identical, as sincere and self-respecting expressions of kindly feeling.
Emerson says that " a circle of men perfectly well bred would be a company nf
sensible persons in whioh every man's native manners and character appeared," and
again he says, " A sainted soul is always
elegant, aud, If it will, passes unchallenged
into the most guarded ring," and in another
filace, " Strong will is always in fashion
et who will be unfashionable."
It lies with mothers, to foster and develop
in children kindly aud sympathetic feelings
towards others, "There is juat oneway to
make children lovely, and that is to surround them by day and night with an atmosphere of love. 1 believe little children
should be kept as long as possible from
knowledge of harshness and wrong doing,
and when they are brought in contact with
It by thoir associations with outsiders we
should inculcate a spirit of forbearance-
lead thom to aay, " Mav be he doesn't know
any better;" " I think he won't do that
when he is older ;" or " No one taught him
any better." And it is even possible, after
the heat of resentment is over, to persuade
your child to return good for evil. There
is nothing more beutlful in life than sympathy tor others, aud there is no greater
work for us than to arouse thiB sentiment
in our children.
To be respectful and considerate towards
all the inmates of our house, to rofrain from
criticising other people, at least before our
children, aro conditions that must be lived
up to, if we wish our children to escape the
unfriendly and critical attitude of many
ill-bred people.
The possessor of (rood manners is without
haste and without fear, Do not try to force
your child to be polite, because yon oan
not; manners that are the alternative of a
dreaded penalty are not good ; tho kingdom of heaven is not attained by violence,
neither are good mannera. I once aaw a
conscientious young mother whip her
three .year-old boy three times before he
would Bay " Good-morning" to a little companion, but I know iho will never make
that mistake again. Do not force your
children to use the polite and conventional
forms of society ; let them grow into thom
naturally and pleasantly ; they like to do
those things when the time comes. The
wondering eyes of your baby say " Good-
morning'' to the whole world long before he
is ready to express himself in words, and
tho smiling lips say " Thank you," bofore
the tongue has learned to articulate.
The motive that should rule us In our
choice of manners is uot what other people
may think of us, but to please others, to
add to others' comfort and happiness. It
should bo the constant aim of tne mother,
for various reasons, to direct the thoughts
of her child away from itself.
The well-bred people of the generations
thtt have gono before, brought up their
children to fool a great n-Bport. nnil deference
for aged people; this is chivalrous and
should accompany tho principle that tho
strong should protect and cherish the weak.
The indifference, not to aay irrevonineo, of
young America for ago has brought our
country into deserved disrepute.
The time is probably near at hand whon
physical training will booome a part of eju
cation. A knowledge and control of thc
body is necessary to grace and ease.
In relation to children and guests, I havo
come to believe that as a rulo tho less thoy
have to do with each other the better for all
concerned. Tho conversation is not suitable; if our visitors do not forget the children altogether, they are apt to say something injudicious about them, lo call attention to their appearance or their remarks; to laugh at their mistakes and in
various ways to develop their self-consciousness.
If children are in thc habit of using shrill
tones, it is usually efficacious to lower our
tones, and if they uso incorrect expressions
or neglect to say "Pleaso" or "Thank you"
wa should repeat their words after them,
using the correct forms, or supplying omissions.
We should allow our children to Invito
their little friends often, that thoy may have
practice in being hosts and hostesses, and
when we aro alone we should use tho opportunity of talking with the children in a
pleasant and entertaining way, so that the
dinner-table may be splace ofgoodohoerto
them as to ourselves.
It is ono of tho characteristics of human
nnture that if wo hoar of tho good deeds of
others we are stimulated with a desire to
do likowiao. Children are very responsive
to this. Wo say "Mrs. U iaso very graceful; this is the way Bho walks." This is
enough to set all thc children tripping about
as nearly as possible like Mrs, 0, or if we
say, "Annie Laurie seems to be very polite;
ahe always says please," then they immediately resolve to say please also.
Thia is different from derogatory comparisons, which alway antagonize. If wo
say, "Annie Laurie is more polite than you
are," this arouses their resentment and destroys the harmony between us. Never
shame your children, this is always unkind
and injures their self-respect.
The Chinese have a saying that "He who
finds pleasure iu vice and pain in virtue is
still a novices in each." It is possible for us
to so direct our children that they shall not
be novice in virtue. We ean put innumerable opportunities in their way of doing
kind and unselfish things. We can give
them so muoh practice in virtue that they
will grow to believe that it is better to give
than to receive.
Humanity is in a transition period ; we
are emerging from the age of strife ; we are
in the midst of a period of immense intellectual activity, but there is dawning npon
us the age of sympathy and benevolence.
Let us help the dawning.���[Clara Ueland,

One quart of cucumbers out in small
pieces, one quart of small cucumbers, all
placed in salt and water over night; two
quarts small onions, two quarts of green
tomatoes cut in pieces or sliced, three
targe green peppers sliced, two heads of
cauliflower out in pieces half a finger long.
Scald all except the cucumbers iu hot salt
and water, i.e., put them in cold weak brine
and allow them to come to a boll. Drain the
brine off and place all the ingredients in a
crock and pour boiling vinegar over them
aud let stand three days. Take one-half
pound of Goloman'a Kngliih mustard (this
is tho only kind I oan recommend, as common mustard will make them bitter), three
cups of light brown augar, one cup of flour
mixed with a little cold vinegar. Pour three
quarts of boiling vinegar over the mustard,
sugar and flour and stir well together.
After the pickles have been well drained
from the vinegar, pour the above mustard
preparation over them and they will keep
a year.
Spanish Pickles,���Take three dozen
large and full grown cucumbers, four large
green peppers, half a peek of small while
onions, aud half a peck of green tomatoes.
Cut the cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes
into pieces, sprinkle a pint of salt over
them and let them stand all night. Next
morning drain them well and add to them
an ounce of mace, one of long white peppers, the same ot white mustard seed, naif
an ounce of cloves, the same of celery seed,
an ounoe of tumeric, three tablespoon fulB
of mustard, three quarters of a pound ot
brown sugtr, a root of horse radish cut in
small pieces; cover them with good aider
vinegar and boil half an hour ; put in stone
or glass jars.    When cold cover closely.
Cucumber Sauce,���Take one peck of
cucumbers of the size selected to cat raw,
pare and cut into dice. Slice and separate
four large onions into rings. Sprinkle over
the whole a pint of salt and let drain seven
hours on a sieve; then add a tablespoonful of
black popper, a small teaspoonful of cayenne
pepper, throe blades ot maoe, eight table*
spoonfuls of salad oil. Put into jars filling
them but two thirds full then fill, to the top
with vinegar.
Spiced Peaches.��� Pare and cut iu halves
seven pounds of peaches, add three pounds
of brown sugar, a pint and a half of vinegar,
one ounce of whole cloves, and half an
ounce of mace. Put tho vinegar, sugar and
mace into the kettle, boil aad skim- then
lay In the fruit and cook slowly until tender. Put tho peaohes into jars ; pears and
plums may be pickled in the same way.
About Tomatoes-
Spiced tomatoes are an excellent relish
with cold meat. Boil sliced, ripe tomatoes
twenty minntM, and rub through a sieve ;
to every 7 pounds of pulp add .% pounds of
sugar, a pint of vinegar, an ounce of broken
cinnamon and a few whole cloves tied loosely in a thin cloth bag. Boil till reduced tn
a thick marmalade, stirring almost constantly toward the last. Remove the bag
of spices and cool in cups or jelly glasses.
Seasonable Dishes.���With gravy : Put
teven or eight whole, ripe tomatoes in a
sauce-pan, stew gently in half a piut of good
meat stock, turning them once or twice till
thoroughly cooked. Thicken with a little
Hour rubbed smooth with butter. With
��� i: Peel twelve tomatoes. Put four teaspoonfuls of butter in a saucepan and fry in
It an onion chopped fine, then add the to*
matoes nnd cook twenty minutes; at the
last add six well beaten eggs, With rice :
Wash a teacupful of rice and cook with It
six peeled, ripe tomatoes; add a teacupful
and a half ot water, salt, pepper, and two
tablespoon futs of augar. Cook till the rice
is tender. Siaaou with butter before serving.
Tomato Soup.���This Is a dish rarely
found on farmers' tables. It ia economical
and appetizing and is especially desirable
as tho first course of the noonday meal. To
eaoh quart of freshly stewed or oanned tomatoes add a teacupful of sweet oroam,
and a teaspoonful of salt with juat a dash
nf pepper. Serve with oyster crackers,
crisp from tho oven.
I must not closo this article without giving a family receipt for tomatoes in brine.
Over the top of a four-gallon jar packed
with smooth, ripe tomatoes throw a half
teacupful of salt, fill with cold water, put
on a plate, weight and clean c'oth and
tic up tightly. In a few days the jar
should be opened, the oloth removed and
rinsed, the brine dipped off as the tomatoes
settle and fresh tomatoes added. Replace
the oloth, and repeat the process till the
jar ia filled with pickled tomatoes. Always
keep them well under the brine and Mud
closely. A slight fermentation takes place
whioh loosens the skins. Serve without
cooking and season with pepper, sugar, and
a little vinegar if liked. They will keep
till warm weather.

three-fourths of a bar of soap Into a basin
or small pail, pour two spoonfuls of kerosene on the soap, then add a pint or more
of hot water and set on ihe back of thu
stove, stirring often until the soap dissolves.
The kerosone will mix with the soap, and
more water may be added if needed. Pour
half of this soap into the boiler and it Is
ready for the clothes. Some people put
the olothes dry into the boiler, but it is
hotter to put them into a tub of water, then
wring out and put in to boil. Put in the
finest clothes first and bo careful not to
crowd the boiler. Let Ihem boil hard for
fifteen minutes,
Thon tako them out into a tub of cold
water and put the second lot into the boiler
after adding half of the remaining hot soap
to the water in the boiler, also a palt of
water to replace what was taken out with
the clothes. While they are boiling set tho

Her Britannic Majesty House* her IKhh
lie Favorites Well While they Live,
and Build Mannmenla le Tbe�� When
They die-lad Ian Attendant*.
The term " servant" as applied to those
who servo the queen is very broad in ita
application. Her ministers are her "servant!." The Carl Rose Opera Troupe, after
singing at Balmoral were permitted to
designate themselves as " her majesty's
servants." But it is in its more limited and
usual sense that I use the word here, aaya a
correspondent of the Philadelphia Press,
The widest known of all the queen's servant's was John Brown, her majesty's late
Highland personal attendant, to whoae
memory her latest" Leaves From the
Journal ofa Life in the Highlands" il dedicated,
John Brown's birthplace is " The Bush,"
a firm lying to the north of Balmoral Castle,
a road much frequented as a drive for visitors. He was first employed in the stables
at Balmoral, where Prince Albert found
him, and, recognizing his excellent quail*
ties, promoted him to the post of " gillie,"
an attendant upon gentlemen when hunting
and fishing. In 1849 he was chosen by the
queen and the prince co go with her
majesty's carriage. In 1851 he began to
lead the queen's pony in their frequent excursions over the hills. He, together with
John Grant, head-keeper and also a much-
trusted servant, always accompanied them
on those expeditions taken incognito, in
which tbo queen and Prinoe Albert delighted.
Born in this region and his forefathers
before him for many generations, he wu
well known and respected throughout the
Highlands. " Favorite servants," said a
Doeside Highlander to me, " generally gain
their place by flattering the weaknesses of
their employer and by underhand measures.
But it was not in that way that John
Brown gained his high place in the confidence of the Queen. He was honest to
bluntness ; spoke his min * out to high and
Did her majesty appear in a comfortable
old oloak for her drive or other exercise
John Brown was liable to remark with a
plaitiess that would send a shiver down the
back of a trained courtier : " And what
kind of a thing is that you've got on today?"
To this straight forwardness of speech
and mind united great kindness of heart
and a desire to oblige. His fellow servants
liked him and trusted him���a good test���
and when he tame to his place of confidant*
of the Queen he did much for their comfort.
All John Brown's brothers have oome into the queen's service. Donald Brown la
at Osborne, Hugh Brown is keeper of tho
kennels In the Home Ptrk at Windsor,
Arohibald Brown is a page In the royal
household, James Brown is the shepherd
at Balmoral, and William Brown lives in
tho house built by the queen at Balmoral
for John Brown and which she has given
to the Brown family in perpetuity. It Is
a large house of granite with stable attached. John Brown never occupied It in hia
lifetime, but his body rested there beforo
In the Castle Park, on a grassy bank
near the cottage in which the queen breakfasts and writes, is a life-size bronze statue
of John Brown. He is in the dress ho always wore when in attendance on the
queen, except, of course, on state or dress
occasions, tlie same that he wears Id the
Cioture hero. Two medals are upon his
reast; the one conferred by the queen for
long and faithful service, the other for saving her majesty's life. He holds his Glengarry cap in his hand. The statue weara a
smiling look, as though ho were about to
apeak. Upon the granite pedestal is this
inscription :
John Drown.
Friend more than servant.
Loyal, truthful, brave;
Selfless than duty
Kven to tho grave.
John Brown is buried In the little Cra-
thle graveyard, a green, well-kept spot.uot
far from the castlo and the Dee. A headstone of gray granite marks tbe grave.
Upon It is the following inscription :
This stone ta erected -

Her majesty Indian empire is represented

Indiana. Her Indian secretary, Hafiz
Abdul Kairm ; her personal attendant, who
" gives his arm to her coming down the
Btoirs," etc., and their aervant and their
cook. A special part of the castle ia assigned them, where aro their kitchen and other
apartments. Their food is prepared by
their cook in acordance with Hindoo customs
and prejudices. Tho atmosphere of their
portion of the castle is said to be redolent of
curry. The Indian secretary assists her
majesty in her study of H'.ndustanee and all
four accompany the queen abroad as well as
to Osborne and Windsor.
Outlositiei ofthe Ensclish Canaus-
The total number of foreigners in Rug-
land and Wales on the night of the census
waa 180,000 and 95,000 of them slept in
London. Of the foreign population iu
London, German's are the mort numerous
���about 27,000. Russians (if Poles are included) number nearly as many. Frenchmen in London are given at over ten thousand, and Americans at between six and
seven thousand, of whom nearly fivo
thousand are natives of the United States.
The Germans appear to have thirty posts
in our national and local Government, Ol
our female teachers more than sixteen
hundred arc German. The German devotion to music is illustrated bv the faot that
1 IDS of our musicians are of German origin.
Germans compote moro severely than any
othor ns tionali ty with our domestic class, in
which their numbers exceed five thousand.
Nearly '2000 Hermans compete with our com-
mercialoloss, in addition toabout 400disput>
ing the business nf the road with the commercial travellers. On our canals, rivers, and
seas over three thousand have employment.
In business connected with our food supply,
as many as 4500 are engaged. The German
bakers in England and Wales alone are
nearly threo thousand. But the most impressive fact in the tables regarding the
occupation of foreigners ts the number of
Russian tailors in the country���betwee**
ten and eleven thousand. About eigh
thousand Scandinavians are in our merchant service. Of the Italian community
1400 arc music teachers, about 1000 are
costermoogeis (ice-cream vendors?), and
410 are confectioners and pastrycooks.
The Antipathy to Foreigner!.
The Shanghai correspondent of the London Standard telegraphs;��� Viceroy Chang,
who is notorious for his hatred of foreigners and for the encouragement he has given
to tho natives in their barbarous treatment
of European visitors, has addressed a petition to the Throne in which he deliberately
advocates the extermination���that is, the
massacre'���of all foreigners iu China, more
particularly tho English. He contends that
this policy ia necessary in order to prevent
the eventual partition of tho Chinase Empire among the European Powers. The
hostile feeling shown to foreigners by tbe
populace in the provinces, especially in the
parts under Chang's authority, continues to
prevail with uuabated vigour. THE WEEKLY NEWS, OCT. 25, 1893.

Mmskj, Oct, 25,1893
In looking over our bonks we find that
many of our subscribers are in arrears,
some of themtor many months. Newspapers can not be run on credit, and we
must urge alt who know themselves to
be indebted to us to at once forward the
Comox and Nanaimo Road.
Tlie road from Comox District to Nanaimo District should be opened up the
next season. It is not too soon to agitate th's matter for the Legislature will
meet in a few weeks and thc matter requires to be brought to its attention.
Our system of roads here extends down
from Courtenay in lhat direction about
three and one half miles, while from Nanaimo the road extend-! in this direction
as far (perhaps farther) as [-"rench Creek.
These two ends should be brought together. The mute is along the beach, or
at least not far back from it, and not difficult to build. There may be two or
three creeks to bridge, but there will be
no heavy grade any of the way, so that
the road is not only practicable but easy
of construction, considering it is through
a wooded country. The belt of land
through which it will puss is comparative
'y level, and from three to nine miles in
width extending from the mountain
range to the gulf, fertile in character and
inviting to seillerS'if only a road be extended through it. In fact from Fanny
Hay to Courtenay thc land along the
route whicli the road would necessarily
t'ikc is for a considerable part owned by
private individuals and to some extent
nlready occupied. This part covers half
the distance to be built. In addition to
this thc important developments at Union wharf and on Dunsmuir Townsite,
just below, should not be overlooked. At
the wharf is delivered all the immense
output ofthe Union Colliery Co., and as
a result the shipping at this point is quite
extensive. Coke works arc to be erected
here providing work for a number of men
A few families arc now settling here, A
little further down (only a half mile) is
-lie new hotel and store of Mr, Ceo.
Howe, and yet there is no road outlet.
It may also be said th.it in spite of the
want ofa road that there is always more
or less travel along the beach and up a-
long the path cut out for the telegraph
line. Occasionally the route is passed
over on horse buck. A road therefore
would not only be a great convenience
but may be put down as an imperative
necessity, as that phrase has come to be
used. This great district with its great
agricultural interests, its timber trade
and its coal output, demands connection
with the road system of the island. We
have sixty miles of road in this district
radiating from Courtenay as a common
centre. Let ;he branch running in the
direction of Union wharf be extended
through and beyond that point until it
connects at French Creek. Then there
will be some unity in thc island road system and the whole be improved and rendered more useful and valuable. Thc
principle of connecting all settled points
with the road system has been observed
in all cases but that of Comnx. Alberni,
although having an outlet by water by
way of Alberni Canal has been very prop
erly connected with the road svstcm at
Nanaimo, notwithstanding there arc not
200 white inhabitants there, while we
with nearly 2,000 inhabitants (including
Union) are isolated entirely from the
road system. Distant Carriboo is connected with the system on the Mainland,
and the old Vale road is an evidence of
the foresight and wisdom of the government in earlier times, forming as it did
a grand trunk road connecting the settlements on the Lower Fraser with all
- ***Jhe ?"**j;ied portions ofthe Mainland portion of the Province. Comox District
should not be made an exception to this
policy. Hy reasou of its importance it
Ins thc strongest claims upon the government. In spite of its isolation it is
making more rapid advancement than
any section ofthe island nnd the outlook
for the future is most promising,
Nanaimo and Wellington should join
hands with us in this movement. It will
make them nearer neighbors and must
enhance their material prosperity. The
different parts of the settled portion of
the island should be knitted together by
a network of roads, and the most import
ant link remaining to be constructed is
that on the line between this place and
School  Nomenclature.
The names of the school districts in
this neighborhood are sadly misappropriate. Who is responsible for this state of
things we do nol know, but it is quite
certain that the names indicate a woful
absence of the sense of the fitness of
things, as well as of local geography. It
was exceedingly foolish to call thc school
at Comox, the South Comox school and
the one now at Courtenay, the North
Comox school. Our language is not so
poverty stricken as to compel us to look
to the points ofthe compass for suggestions of names. Hesides it should have
been apparent to the dullest understand-
in? that as a new country like this developed, another school further north would
be needed when the name applied to the
first onc would become a misnomer. Tne
I'untledge school is improperly named.
Il is near the banks ofthe Tsolum Kiver,
whereas the Punt edge stream (should
be spelled Puntlach) docs not touch the
territority included within that of Punt-
ledge school district. Hut the worst case
is the Courtenay school. This is at
Grantham, known as Grantham by every
body. Here is located the Grantham
post office. There is no stream or tree
or mountain 01 person or any object what
ever within the school district called
Courtenay. Hesides all that it creates
confusion and trouble. The school at
the village of Courtenay, is officially described as the North Comox School, but
popularly as the Courtenay school. It always will in spite of its official designation, continue to be called the Courtenay
school. That is the proper name. The
post office here is the Courtenay post
office, andthe townsite is registered by
that name. It follows that if one speaks
or writes about thc Courtenay school he
is understood as meaning the school at
the village of Courtenay. School documents addressed to parties connected
with the school at Grantham (Courtenay
school) are generally forwarded to the
Courtenay post-office. The school at the
village of Courtenay should manifestly be
officially known as the Courtenay school
and the one at Grantham should be
known as the Grantham school.
We trust the Department of Education
will kindly look into the matter and
make the school names correspond with
the post-office names, and thus avoid
