Philadelphia, Pa.. Nov. 11��� The 17th
annual session of the general aaaembly,
Knights' of Labor, began thia morning in
Industrial Hall and will continue for ten
daya. The half hundred delegatea who were
then present were called to order by Dr. A.
H. H. Leuf, Master workman of District
No. 1, of Philadelphia, who delivered an address of welcome. This was responded to
by General Master Workman Powderly,
after which I he latter took the chair. A discussion on matters brought up by the committee on credentials consumed the entire morning. General Master Workman Powderly
then rend his annual report. After referr
ing to the work done by the order, Mr.
Powderly replied to the attacks made upon
him by a proteatant clergy nun, who charged
that he waa conspiring with the Roman
Catholic church to overthrow the country.
He snys there ia one conclusion to arrive at.
No sensible proteatant has anything to do
with these matters. No self resin cting man
could deoend to auoh deptha of slander aud
villianouB misrepresentation. He asks
that a committee be appointed to
investigate the cbargea. Mr. Powderly
urges tbe people of the United Statea to adopt ��� hat olauae of the Swisa constitution
which makes every-citizen liable to military
service, thua doing away with the maintenance of a standing army of the state militia.
Tn furtherance of this he recommends that
the military feature be engraved upon the
public jchools system of the nation. He
finally favora the free coinage cf ailver, and
says he will address the General Assembly
if required and Bhow samples of fiat money
not recognized by tbe constitution of the
United Siates, but which performs all the
functions of money to the exclusion of the
legal coinage of the Government.
The Coinage of Silver-Not a Onestion of
Gold hat of Monoy -Treasury Balance
Very Low.
Washington, DC, Nov. 14.���Secretary
Carlisle stated to-day that he had made no
change in his annouueed intention as to the
ooinage of the standard ailver dollars. The
original announcement mads by direction of
Secretary Carlisle stated that while tbe
actual coinage of etasdard silver dollars had
not been commenced an order had been
issued to the mints at New Orleans and San
Francisoo to prepare the ingots and blanks
so as to be ready for ooinage at a moment's
notice. The mints are now in readiners
and await only the explicit ordera
to begin. When theae will be given,
Secretary Carlisle does not care to say.
They may not be given at all, or they may
be given any day. He will be guided as he
expressed it by tbe "emergency of the situation." He aimply wanta to bs prepared.
Tbe object of the proposed coinage as was
stated at the time in the United Presi dispatches, was to utilize the seignorage arising
from the coinage. Thia seignorage with the
mintage facilities available would not
amount to more than five hundred thousand
a month at preaent. It was hoped by
increasing the coinage to run the
seignorage up to one million dollars
a month. The coinage of seignorage thus
obtained is no innovation. It has been
going on under thia adminiatration aa well
as former onea. Aa a matter of fact, eighty
five thouaand dollars the profit on seignorage, aiisuig from the coinage of subsidiary
silver coin, was last week put into the treasury assets aa haa been done from time to
time, for yeara. At no time haa it been the
intention of Secretary Carlisle nor ia it
bia intention now to toll off the aienor-
age and coin it. He is convinced
that the Secret try of the Treasury haa not
authority to do ao, and that it can only be
done by an act of Congreaa. Thia matter
will probably be one that will engage the
early attention of Congreaa in December.
Aa the aubject isunderatood at the Treasury
Congress will be asked to give the Secretary
of tbe Treaaury thia power to toll off the
seignorage and coin it as hs' may
in bia diacretion deoide. Compulaory
coinage of the seignorage is not
desired. By coining this seignorage the treaaury, it ia pointed out, would
gain from five hundred thouaand to one
million dollars in ailver. At present the
treasury balance hovers about the one hundred million mark, and for tbe paat ten daya
or ao has been one day above it and next
below it. Tae receipts continue disappoint
ing and feara are expressed that from now
on the net balance will continue below one
hundred million dollars. This balance ismade
up of eighty five millions in gold and fifteen
millions in currency. Itisnolongeraquestion
of gold, but a question of money. In proportion to the net balance the supply of gold
is greater than it haa been for sometime, and
even if all the balance waa in gold it would
simply have to be paid out to meet the current expenaea. No uneasiness, however, is
felt in treasury circles, aa nntil thia net
balance beoomea ao low aa to destroy public
confidence, no evil effeot oan result.

Knew Nothing of a Revolution.
Nkw York, Nov. 14 ���The Ward Line
steamship Yumuri from Havana, on Nov.
9th, reached her pier this morning. Captain
Hanson was seen and said that he knew
nothing of the revolution there. "You have
later news here" he said, "than I." The
Yumuri, however, carried in its mails a
large number of Havana papers. They gave
a long account of what appears to be a
spontaneous uprising ef small bands of
revolutionists, all over the inland. General
Martie, the editor of Patria and a leader of
the revolutionary party in Cuba, was seen
at his office this morning. He had just received the following cable dispatch in reference to the reported uprising in that island:
"Key West, Nov. 1.���Persecution goes on
againet the Esquirra party and othera.
Condition critical." He also had the follow[
ing:���"Ocala, Fla., Nov. 30.���Large meeting of sympathizers laat night. Great enthusiasm."
The Russian Prisoners.
Washington, D.O., Nov. 14.���Secretary
Carlisle to-day received from the Commia-
aioner of Immigration at San Francisco a report accompanied by a sworn testimonial
about the landing in San Francisco of tivelve
Russian convicts who escaped from confine
ment and weie picked up by passing vessels
and brought to this country. The men are
now under arrest in San Francisco and the
question that complicates tbe situation is
what to do with them. While the greatest
secrecy is maintained at tbe Department
about the contents of the official report it is
believed that the Russians were prisoners,
in which case it ia said cur immigration lawa
do not interfere to debar them from landing,
at the same time the Russian Minister,
Prince Cantacuzeno, haa intereated himself
in having them turned over to the Russian
authorities. The matter haa assumed such
an important phase that Secretary Carlisle
has taken it into his own hands and will
confer with Secretary Gresham on the fate
of the Russians.

San Francisco, Cala., Nov. 14.���The

maiumaat of tbe veasel had worked itself
loose and threatened te destroy the ship.
The keel of the vessel is reported to have
disappeared and tbe thumping of the craft
on the rocks bas lessened greatly the chances
of getting her off compared with a week

F.    C.-Cotton,   M.   P.  P.,   WIU  Have to
Vancorvkr, B. B., Nov. 14 ���Some weeks
since Mr. Gordon, who some years
ago, entered into a partnership
with F. L. Carter-Cotton, M. P. P.,
obtained a judgment against that
gentleman for a large sum of money due him
'rom tbe partnership arrangement. It
appears that five yeara ago Mr. Gordon
who put all the capital into the concern in
the first inatanca had to leave Vancouver for
England. Mr. Cotton was left in charge of
the partnership interests as manager but
now alleges that he subsequently purchased
Mr. Gordon's interests from M. J. C. Keith
who held the latters power of attorney.
However, upon Mr. Gordon's return to Vancouver a few monJhs ago he found his
property ia the hands of Cotton but heavily
encumbered practically placing it in the
hands of a third party. Mr. Gordon
then entered suit and obtained the judgment
referred to above. In due time Cotton was
brought up for examination, but being unwilling to give what Mr. Gordon's solicitor
considered a satisfactory explanation as to
what he had done with his partner's property, an application was made this morning before Mr. Justice Drake to compel him
to give the desired information or be committed. Mr. D.ivis, in asking for tbe order,
said it was with great reluctance lint he
bad to move for an order for the commit,
ment of Cotton, but on previous examination he had found him very adverse toanswer-
ing aud, therefore, had no other alternative.
His Lordship said Mr. Cottou was no doubt
an unwilling witness and made the order.
Cotton was unrepreiented. Mr. Charles
Wilson appeared on behalf of the News Advertiser and objected to the business of that
concern being introduced in Cotton's interrogatory.

Journal of Commerce Bnslnoss Review.
Nkw York, Nov. 14���The Journal of
Commerce and Commercial Bulletm, in its
review of the dry goods market, says:���On
Wednesday last there was a better business
than for a considerable time previous, and a
more confident air regarding the future was
noticeable in many quarters. Coming on
the heels of the electiona, thia waa construed
aa the direct result of the heavy Republican
gains at the pol'a, but the courae of the
market aince then Ins ahown that the
improvement waa not indicative of any
change of polioy on the part of the trade at
large, but due to tbe advantageous aid of
ordera accumulated during the holidays.
Buyers were without exception atill providing for requirements well within sight only
in staples and in seasonable fanciea and are
making but hesitating progress in laying out
engagement for spring uext. There has
been inatancea of larger buyera doing the
market with low bida for quantitiea of merchandise for immediate or early delivery
and here and there business of a fair extent
bad been transacted where aellrra have been
diapoaed to trade, but aa a rule the teat applied has shown values on a steady baaia,
few stocks being too bulky for sellers
to carry without inconvenience. While
business ia on a conservative baaia and unobtrusively conducted, it ia of sufficient
volume to take oare of most supplies and aa
no accumulation of sticks can be discouraged
in second bands is further proof that actual
consumption is at least on even terms with
present rate of production in all seasonable
goods. The outlook for spring is aa yet of
an undefined character, the pricea baaia of
heavy cottona and heavy gooda ia indefinite
and while buyera are as a rule showing much
indifference towards covering spring needs,
agents may possibly allow orders to drift in
thia way a little longer. Collections continue to be well reported on in both cotton
and woolen divisions.

was taken in hand by the
"Bulla" and advanced from 94J to 964.
This so discounted the "Shorts" that a
covering movement was started a t once in
other parts of the list. The report, afterwards verified by official action, that the
directois of the Chicago, Burlington and
Quincy would declare the regular quarterly
dividend of 1J %, helped along the rise.
Burlington and Quincy moved up from 80}

dissatiafaction among the foreign holders of
the stock over the recent purchase of the

In a few more weeks the last session of
the present Parliament will have been called
together, and in a few months after it has
become a matter of history a new election
will claim the attention of the electors.
The next contest will perhaps be
the most important in the history
of the Province. In former yearB,
when the country was practically
unknown except to a few hardy people who
undertook to prospect the mineral districts
of the (treat interior, and a few business
men iu Victoria who supplied them with
clothing and provisions, it was conaidered
not necessary by most citizens to give much
attention to political matters. The great
bulk of the population in those daya was
centred at one or two points on the coast
and the Provincial Government was looked
upon more as a sort of municipal Council
than the Parliament of a large and important country.
During the years that have gone past the
people of this distriot and surrounding
country have not given that attention tc
their political status which the importance
and requirements of the constituency de.
mand.�� It is generally believed that the
next Parliament will have measures to
think over and discuss which will require
the presence of able representatives from
every constituency. It therefore behooves the people of thia district
to be ready and well prepared.
They thould take time by the forelock, and
organize. Our members in the past have
not been, we regret to say, men of a thoroughly reresentative character. The people
have been too apathetic in their choice of
candidates and too careless aa to their privileges, but the time is rapidly approaching
when a new choice will have to be made,
and if the opportunity thus < ffered to secure
good and able representatives is thrownaway
they will only have themselves to blame.
We drew attention the othej day to the fact
that the local ministry have been devoting
a good deal of time to the Mainland. \Ve
hold that it is now our turn to have tome
attention paid to us. We have many important subjecte to lay before them which
can only be auccesi-fully considered by obtaining a face to face discussion with the
Premier and his colleagues which would be
of incalculable benefit te our city and the
large and important dietrict in immediate
proximity to our border line.

Charles Luckey will be hanged on the
14th Dec. for the horrible crime of murdering his father, mother and sister a year ago
in Eastern Canada. He was tried at the
Spring Assizes, and acquitted but waa rearrested aud after a fair trial was found
guilty and sentenced to be banged. The
evidence against him was wholly circumstantial but aa may be remarked circumstantial evidence is sometimes stronger than
direct evidence as personal feelings may iu
many cases bias the judgement, even where
a person meana to speak only the truth.
The new feature of criminal law in allowing
a prisioner to teatifiy in hia own defense,
proved the meaus of sealing Luckey's doom
as by hia evasive answers and being unable
to account for his aotions aud tell where he
was at the time of the murder, gave freah
proof to the other convincing circumstances.
This goes to prove the contention of the
friends of the law, when it was under discussion in the House.
According to estimates based upon the
best data attainable, the 21 passenger railroad lines that enter Chicago carried to that
city 3,335,000 persona during the continuance of the World's Fair. An extraordinary
volume of travel thia. If the number of
people taken to Chicago by its 21 railways
in sir months were added to the resident
population of the oity the total
would not be many hundred thousand less than the permanent population of the British Metropolis. Chicago is a wonderful place, to be sure, and
big too, but these figures tell us how small
it really is compared with London. The
Chicago people are bragging that before long
their city will be the biggest in the world.
They better get a move on and build s

To'Hamilton, Ont., belongs the honor of
being the first place in the Dominion to
erect a statue to Canada's greatest statesman, Sir John A. Maodonald In thus paying due honor to the memory of the first
statesman of hia day that oity is only showing
a sense of gratitude to the man, who by his
wisdom, and courage helped to lift the city
out of thestagnaut despondent state which the
precedingmioistry by their insane loveof free
trade bad plunged it. The writer can well
remember the state of things which huug
like a funeral pall over the manufactures atthat
time when men, good machines were working on charity work cutting down tho hills
near the old Great Western Station, having
to wait their day among the hundreds of
others who had applied to the city for relief.
With the return to power of Sir John A.
Macdonald thia was changed as if by magic
Instead of despondency, a spirit ot hopefulness took possession of all classes. The
bitterest political enemies of Sir. John,
were not afraid to inveat their money in enterprises employing labor. The workmen
began toearngoodwageaandwereaoonable to
support their families in comfort, pay their
debts and indulge io luxuries. Well may
Hamilton be the first to do honor to the
dead chieftain. While all Canada may revere his memory and regret hia loaa, Hamilton pre-eminently should mourn him, and
do hia memory honor. At the unveiliog
ceremony none hid anything but kindly
worda for the man whom many of them had
met in esrneat debate, and all paid their
tribute to the sturdy patriotism, the intense
loyalty and fsrveut love whioh he held for
hia country.

Mysterious Activity.
Washiniito.v, D. C. Nov. 14.���There are
signs of suppressed activity visible in the
state and navy departments. Of course it
waa at once connected with the arrival of
the steamer yeaterday morning from
Hawaii. Following the press advices came
a telegram^from Commadore Skerrett. It
was the usual formal communication sent in
such cases announcing hia arrival and subjecting himself to the orders of the Navy
Department. There were letters of importance for the Commodore from the department awaiting his arrival at San Francisco and later in tho day, the force of the
naval officers aud clerks whose business it is
to unravel or formulate the complicated
naval cipher despatches were locked up to
struggle with a long communication of some
kind evidently touohing affairs of atate aa
shown by the interest manifeated in the
matter, by the state department officiala.
That fact was'a considerablo stimulation of the
euriosity of thepersons interested in Hawaiian
matters and conjectures ran rife. The officials who had knowledge of the facts re
fused to even hint at the nature of the communication, but it was evidently a matter
that required Secretary Gresham closely for
he was deferred a visit to Woodley, (the
second which he had made in the course of
the day), until it was put in proper shape
for submission to the President. The general impression was that the despatch was
one from Minister Willis which hs had
charged Commodore Skerrett to put upon
the wires immediately upon his arrival at
Saa Francisco. There was a rumor about
the Navy Department this afternoon to the
effect that Queen Lilioukalani had been reestablished upon her throne last Friday but
it was difficult to guess how it can have any
basis of fact, in view of the sailing of the
steameriChina on the 11th inst., unless som
one who arrived on the China this morning6
was acquainted with Minister Willis' i ro
gramme and telegraphed his information to
Takes Two Nations to Make a Minister
Washington, D.C., Nov. 14.���Kx-Seore-
tary Stanton, who is regarded aa one of the
ablest admiralty lawyers in the country,
makes the following suggestions as to the
possible outcome of the Hawaiian situation:
"A naval officer haa the right to disobey an
order which he knows to be illegal, but he
aaaumea psraonal responsibility in so refusing. If on the trial thia order is ahown to
be illegal he cannot be puniahed, but in the
first instance tha officer is to obey the order
and throw the reaponsibility on hia bu-
perior who gave him the order. In the Hawaiian matter T)jle has>a simple way of tying Minister Willis' h ��nda if he ia shrewd
enough. All he has got to do is to hand
him his passports and refuse to have any
further dealings with him. Willis becomes
immediately a private citizen and cannot
legally give an order to a naval officer. It
makes no difference if another set of credentials is given by Lilioukalani. The Provisional Government haa received recognition aa a defacto Government from foreign
nations and any act by Willis as American
Minister to Hawaii, alter President Dole
sent him hia paasport, would be illegal. It
takes two nations to make a Minister.
Lord Sackville West ceaaed to be British
Minister when the State Department pave
him hia notioe.
Tne Hawaiian Question.
Washington, D.C., Nov. 14.���It appeara
that the Department of State has heard
from Minister Willis by telegraph from San
Francisco. It ia learned that despatches received at the Department yeaterday confirm
the previous reports of Minister Willis' arrival at Honolulu, and other events up to
the time of ths departure of the China. The
Hawaiian Miniater, Mr. Thurston, called at
the Department this morning and was privately in conference with Secretary Greaham
until thehouraet for the meeting of theCilii net.
They refuse to make any etatement touching
Hawaiian affairs. It ia believed that if he
has any intention of making publio at tr-is
time Commiasioner Blount's report or Minister Willis' instructions, the idea haa been
abandoned and the next offioial statement
that will be given to the publio from the
department will probably appear in a communication to Congreaa of the entire correspondence relating to Hawaii, which haa
passed since President Harrison sent the
annexation manifesto to the Senate. In
soma quarters there was a dispoaition to
attach significance to the fact that Mr.
Thraton was reoeivad by Secretary Greaham
today, on the supposition that the reception
was equivalent to an admission that the
provisional government from which the
miniater ia accredited is still in existence.
A Conference WIU Be Held Forthwith.
London, Nov. 14.���Both the ooal mine
owners asaociation aud the miner's federation, have accepted the reoommendationa
made by Mr. Gladstone in hia letter to the
association*. In this letter Mr. Gladstone
said among other things tending to bring
the dispute to an end, that it appeared to
the Government that advantages will accrue
from the discussion of the points at issue,
between the employers and employes, under
tbe chairmanship of a member of the Government. Mr. Gladstone thereupon invited
the miners' and the ownera' federations to
send representatives to a conference and
this will be done forthwith.

Trials By Courts of Honor.
Berlin, Nov. 14.���The Kmperor has di-
rected the Commanding Generals in accordance with the Military receipt of May 1874
that all officers compromised hy gambling or
usury proceedings must be tried by Courts
of Honor and those convicted of offending
against the honor of their class will be
forced to retire from the service. The
Emperor also requests the General to name
to him the Regimental Commanders who
have disregarded his suggestions in favor of
a simple aud economic mode of life in the official corps. The Emperors expectation that
hia utterances against luxurious living in
the army would start a reform of officers
habits has not been fulfilled.

They   Come    from    the    Hooky    Mountains,
Where do the waters of Lake Michigan come from? is an old question; and
it is a question as old as the artesian
wells. Where do their waters come
from? Col. Foster, an eminent eivil engineer, for many years in charge of
government interests on the lake, was
fond of talking on the first subject.
"Every drop of those waters," he was
often heard to declare, says the Chicago
Herald, "came from the Rocky mountains." His theory was fr'ii��t. they were
brought here subterraneously. but he
never, to our knowledge, marked out
the course of the subterraneous stream.
He announced this as his conviction
long before���indeed, he died before���
the sinking of artesian wells in Chicago and the consequent discovery of the
now undoubted fact.
William li. Ogden held the same view,
and used at times to make himself very
interesting in expatiating upon it.
With him, as well as with Col. Foster,
it was no more than a theory, but he adhered to it firmly.
Mr. C'regier, who is scientific before
he is a politician, is wont to talk approvingly of the theory in a manner to
convince tiny man. The phenomenon is
the running out of this lake through
the others of the easterly chain and
over Niagara falls of an incalculable
quantity, of water, and this continually
every minute in the hour, every hour in
the day, every day in the year and every
year in progressive time! The lake has
no visible inlets���where, then, does it
get its replenishment? From the
Rocky mountains. Through rents and
crevices, down into caverns at the roots
of these mountains, pour ever the
waters from melting snows. Four
thousand feet they sink to strike a
gravity incline that levels with their
lloor under Chicago. Under this city
and elsewhere on the west side of Lake
Michigan���this is the proved theory,
theory as good as proved���the snow-
covered Rocky mountains are constantly sending their waters to supply How-
age and evaporation that are ever going
forward in the watery expanse right
here in sight of a million and a half (almost) of people.
Chicago Well Provided with Free Recreation Grounds.
An American gentleman, writing to
Garden and Forest from England,
notes two things in particular which
help the people there to get more for
their money in the way of recreation
than we do here. One of these is the
enormous amount of common land so
easily accessible from the great cities,
and the other the fine roads for bicycling, a form of recreation in universal
vogue. In his native city, Cincinnati,
this gentleman remembers that it was
almost impossible for the boys to have
a garni; of baseball, and the few places
then available are now covered with
buildings. He says: "None of Cincinnati public purks are ever used for
games, and I don't think many of our
western cities allow such use of their
parks. Here nearly all the parks have
immense spaces reserved for cricket,
tennis and the like, and the London
vestries are continually acquiring new
land for recreation purposes." While
Cincinnati is exceptionally backward
among large western cities in providing
proper park facilities, the charge of not
permitting a sufficient use of the parks
for games would certainly not hold
against Chicago, where the people enjoy the parks to a remarkable extent.

Painful Accident.
Yesterday afternaon two little children belonging to Mr. Thomson of
the five acre lots were playing
with a hatchet in the rear of their fathers'
residence. The younger one while his
brother was lopping the ends off some little
sticks on a chopping block placed his finger
for a moment on the block just as the
hatchet was descending, and the little fellow
received a severe gash, the hatchet going
through the finger above the second joint.
When Dr. Walkem arrived, having been
sent for to dress it, the end of the finger
vas only attached by a small piece of flesh.
The little fellow stood the dressing well and
behaved as though nothing was amiss.

Alvin Joslin.
"Alvin Joslin," who appears at the Opera
Houae on Friday night is as familiar as a
household word, and as a play is so well
known it needs little comment; its merits
are universally acknowledged. Ch\s. L.
Davis, its oreator, will of course play the
part of "Uncle Alvin." For years this
quaint attraction has suoceeded in amusing
and entertaining the theatre going masses,
and there is no reason why it should not do
so for many years to come. The public will
never tire af Chas. L. Davis, until it wearies
of inexpensive morality, humor, healthy excitement and innocent pastime. The exact
counterpart of Alvin Joslin cannot be found,
it ia a unique character of the American
stage, and whatever is said of Davis, he
must be credited with originality and a
praiseworthy eftort to please. No doubt as
heretofore,l,hiB company will be fully up to
the standard of merit; the cast is a big one,
and the scenery of the play forms a considerable element in this very commendable
play. No doubt tbe promised 180 laughs in
J 880 minutes will be hugely enjoyed by
those who visit Alvin Joslin at the Opera
House. Reserved seats on sale at Prlubury

A Bold Robbery.
Princktontown, Ind. Nov., 14.���One of
the boldest robberies ever committed in the
State of Indiana was accomplishes! in this
city between 12 and 1 o'clock today. Since
the reoent fire in this city the Farmers Bank
baa been using part of the room occupied by
Wm. Wades jewelery store. While all
were at dinner, theives went down the alley
to the rear end of the building, broke the
glass in the doors, reached through, opened
the door, and walked in. Finding the bank
vault locked they gave their attention to
the jewelry, which they went at with a will
taking gold watches, diamonds, and in fact
everything worth carrying away, completely
stripping the store of its valuables. The
loss cannot be learned, but will run into the
thousands.    No clue to the robbers.

Their Patterns
Purchasers of our Patterns
will note that, beginning with
the issue for the present month,
a material reduction has been
made from the prices hitherto
charged, this reduction having
been determined upon in view
of the present financial and
commercial depression, which
is affecting every class ol
society, but particularly the
wage-earners, who are necessarily the least able to withstand any condition which for
a time decreases or wholly
withdraws their income.
The enormous circulation of
"The Delineator" (the combined first American, English
and Canadian editions of the
present number are over 560,-
000 copies) is proof that it
srtisfies a very general iieed,
and our aim for the future will
be to merit an ever increasing
share of popular favor by maintaining a continual improvement in the quality and scope
of the magazine. In reducing
the prices of our Patterns we
have been actuated by motives
of regard for those who have
contributed, by their constant
patronage, to our own success.
The demand for Butterick Patterns is now larger than ever
before, and we are confident
that by diminishing their cost
we will lessen the financial
pressure in many a household,
and at the same time introduce
our goods to women who have
heretofore been unacquainted
with their merits.

For some years an entire black evening
costume has been allowable for unmarried
women. The innovation has always been
frowned upon by the conservative. And by
their quiet opposition black is again considered bad form for young girls. To certain
complexions it is wonderfully becoming,
but these fair maidens will have to confine
themselves to light shades for their evening
gowns if they desire to be considered fashionable. And who is the woman who does
��ot prefer to be stylishly dressed to being
becomingly dressed?

Halted almonds are i: >w a favorite dish
at receptions, teas, luncheons and even dinners, and their popularity is increasing all

bought at the confectioners', but here is a
t-imple recipe for preparing them at home:
Fust, carefully crack the nuts so that tbe
k.Tiials can be extracted whole, then blanch
the almonds by placing them in scalding
water which causes the brown covering of
the nut to iooseu, whon it can readily be removed. Have ready a pau of flue salt, and
wheu the nuts are all blanched place the
warm, wet kernels into the salt.

more thau a piece of felt, plush or embroidered cloth, twisted iu the semblance of a

pulled into almost auy becoming shape wheu

This Farmers' Millenium Will Eventuate
About 1015-The Size of Farms to be
Limited by Statute���No Fences and
Machinery Galore.
The Rural New Yorker has been publishing the opinions of some of its correspondents on "The Farmer ot the
Future." Here are some of the suggestive observations of a correspondent
who locates the Farmers, millenium
somewhere about the year 1915:
"The size of farms will be limited by
statute. One jierson will not be allowed
to gobble up everything adjoining him
simply because lie has the money to do
it. Most of the farms will be owned by
the men who till them, There will still
he a few tenant farmers, but the rent
they will pay, after deducting taxes and
two percent, on whatever amount is still
unpaid, will be applied to the purchase
of the land. The man who sells 11 farm
will be permitted to secure tho unpaid
balance with a mortgage, but he will
not be allowed to foreclose that mortgage within 10 years from the date of
the last payment on the principal provided the buyer annually pays all
taxes and two per cent, on the amount
due and unpaid. On foreclosure of the
mortgage the seller will be obliged to
refund to the buyer all the money paid
him, less an annual interest of two per
cent, on the amount due and upaid, and
reasonable indemnity for deterioration
of the land, buildings etc., while under
his control.
"There will be no fences except those
around pastures and barn lots, and these
will be composed of twisted, looped and
curled wires, with barbs one-eighth of
an inch long.
"More corn and stalks will he converted into silage. The crop will be cut
and bound into small bundles by
machinery, shocked up and partly cured
and then cut into the silo. More silage
and less hay will be used on the farm.
"Wagons will be broad-tired and low-
down. The box will he steel-bound and
so constructed that one or both sides or
ends can be removed almost instantly.
"Small, electric engines of one to four
horse-power will be found on many
fiii-ms. They will be sold at a price
which will enable almost any farmer to
own one, and will be used for grinding
feed, pumping water, etc., etc.
"The art of making malleable glass
will be discovered, and many acres in
the Northern States will be covered with
it mid devoted to growing vegetables
and semi-tropical fruits for the local
markets. Many farmers will cover
their barnyards, piggeries, etc., with a
roof composed of this material and sheet
"Sugar beets will be grown on thousands of acres in our Western States,
which are now devoted to corn, oats and
wheat, and we shall be making 75 per
cent, of all the sugar we consume.
"The mines and manufactories of the
country will be managed in the interests
of the Workers and consumers, and not
as now, for the enrichment of a few
millionaire barons. Coal will be resold
at a price that will enable the tiller of
the soil to run two stoves in his house
without fearing bankruptcy.
"Farmers will be as prominent in the
councils of the nation as lawyers now
are, and their interests will receive as
much attention as those of other classes.
They will display more practical common sense and good judgment in the
management of their own business.
"Farmers will individually cultivate
a siual'er acreage and do it thoroughly
and scientifically. Instead of robbers,
they will be wardens of the land. The
needs of the soil will be ascertained by
experts employed by the Government,
and farmers will supply these needs intelligently and economically.
"A smaller number of expensive implements will be kept by individual
farmers, Harvesters, corn-huskcrs,
haying machines, potato planters and
diggers, etc., will be owned by skilled
machinists, who will make a living by
contracting for and doing the work.
"There will be two distinct kinds of
plows in use. One will cut a wide furrow, and by means of a removable
mold-board either turn the soil over us
now, or allow it to glide back over the
share through steel breakers ami fall
crumbled into the' furrow. The other
will cut a narrow furrow and run deep,
and will be used for special purposes.
Doth will have light wheels and the
plowman will ride.
"All crop cultivating will be ��:urface
work. Deep root-cutting,<gouging and
hilling will lie things of the past. Tho
new implements will thoroughly stir
the entire surface, working close to the
plants, and will have steel knives for
cutting otf large weeds and numerous
narrow teeth for uprooting small ones,
all of which will be completely under
the control of the operator who can
either ride or walk.
"Corn husking will be done by machinery. The implement will take a
row of corn as fast as a team can walk,
cut the s Oh* oil close to the ground,
strip off i *s0 ears, husk and drop them
into a wa(,M driven alongside, cut. the

About sixty years ago, Tippo Tib, who
has been brought into prominence in
English-speaking ��Ciintries through
Gordon and Stanley, fell in love with a
young girl who had been refused to
him by tne father on account of his poverty. The young people, however, were
much attached to each other, and one
fine evening the girl ran away with her
The distance being considerable between the twodouars, (villages), and the
road extremely perilous, Tippo had
armed himself from head to foot. Already the most dangerous part of the
road had been cleared, and they were
beginning to hear the dogs" of the dollar
towards whioh they were rapidly advancing, when all at once a young lion,
who till that moment had lain concealed behind the bushes, rose aud walked
straight towards them.
The young girl shrieked so fearfully
that her cries were heard by the peop'e
in the tents, and several of the men immediately seized their arms and rushed
out to the rescue. When they reached
the spot to which they were directed
by the 6creams of the young maiden,
they saw the lion walking slowly a
few paces in front of Tippo, with his
eyes steadfastly fixed upon him, and
leading him thus towards the forest.
The young girl did all she could to prevent her lover following the lion, or
induce him to let go herself, but in vainj
he kept dragging her on in spite of all
her efforts, saying:
"Come, my beloved, come; our master
will have it so; we must go!"
"But your weapons," she cried; "what
are they good for if not to save me?"
"Weapons? I have none!" answered
' the fascinated wretoh. Then addressing
the lion, he said: "Great lord, believe
her not; I am perfectly unarmed, and
will follow you wherever you will."
At this moment the Arabs, eight or
ten in number, who had come to the rescue of the unfortunate couple, perceiving that the lion would very soon have
them in the forest, fired, every one of
them, upon him; but on finding that he
did not fall, they took to their heels.
The lion sprang upon Tippo's love, and
with one bound crushed her to the earth,
smashiug her head at a bite; after which
he lay down by the side of the young
man, placing his huge paws upon his
The Arabs now finding that the lion
did not condescend to pursue them, took
courage and returned, and having reloaded their guns, prepared again to fire;
but being afraid of killing the man, they
told him to try to get a little way from
the lion, which he allowed him to do,
without ever losing sight of him. The
moment the guns of the Arabs were levelled at him. the lion sprang into the
midst of them, seized one with his teeth
and two others with his claws dragging
them together, sons to make, us it were,
one bundle, then, placing under him
that mass of palpitating flesh, he instantly smashed the three heads, as he had
done that of the girl. Those who escaped ran to the douar and told tho
story, but no one was bold enough to
return for another attack. The lion
then carried the man into the forest
What occurred there the hero of the adventure has never revealed ; hut from
that day to this a settled melancholy
has found a resting place iu Tippo's
It is true that tho lion has ,he power
of fascination over somo organizations?
All I can say is, that the Arabs answer
in the affirmative, and give numerous
examples.���H. M. S.
