A large new barn has been erected, recently, on tke Wilson property.

The school house needs repairing,
the plaster having dropped off the
ceiling, and a coat of paint would
do bo harm.
Tokio, Aug. 4,���The Japanese
are hourly awaiting the tidings of
a victoroy at Port Arthur with
more interest and eagerness than
heretofore displayed during the
War. From political, strategical and sentimental stand point,
the- possession of the Russian fortress and naval base is considered
of paramount importance by the
Japanese. It is known that the
Japanese noose about the besieged city is gradually tightening
The Japanese guns are pouring fire
into ihe diminishing circle and it is
felt here that the critical hour is
fast approaching.
Slight injuries often disable a
man and cause several days' loss of
time and when blood poison develops, sometimes result in the loss
of a hand or limb. Chamberlain's
Pain Balm is an antiseptic liniment.
When applied to cuts, bruises and
burns it causes them to heal quickly and without maturation, and
prevents any danger of blood poisou.

Narrow Escape.
Rev. A. E. Vert, of the B, C.
Penitentiary, Westminster, had a
narrow escape from drowning 00
Thursday evening at Boundary
Bay. It seems the rev. gentleman
was in bathing out of his depth and
caught cramps. Unable to help
himself he called so lustily for assistance as to startle the entire encampment. Little Myrtle
Mack, aged only 13 summers, swam
to his assistance till a boat arrived
and rescued him. Mr. Vert went
down twice and was brought to
shore iu a semi-unconscious state.

On Monday night last, while
miming before a squall making for
the Fraser, an Indian and hfe family were driven on to the Jfend-
heads, where tbe boat was capsized
and the two children washed out
and drowned. The parents were
picked up in an exhausted condition by some of the fishermen belonging to the Albion Camnery. Dr.
King, after viewing the bodies, decided an inquest was not necessary.

Sir: I* there no law to compel1
the Indians to cut tbe noxious
weeds on their reservations? I was
travelling throtfgh the Cbewassen
Reserve this week and the thistles
were growing there in countless
numbers, and wild mustard by the
acre*. No effort is put forth to cut
either. It is useless for the Council to cut noxious weeds on the
roads if they aire permitted to grow
on adjoining property.
[This, We think, should be referred to the Indian Department, by
the Council.���Ed.]

Barley, as is pretty generally

especially when cooked, but for a

production of the stout muscular
tissue which is so essential to staying power���barky bas never met
with much favor as a food for horses
in this country. Curiously enough,
the Arabs, who are celebrated for
'the care they take of their horses,

with hay and straw, barley enters

Thomas W. Weber in "The Forests of
Upper India and Their Inhabitants"
Here for the first time we saw the
klang, er wild horse. Several herds
came to look at us as we marched and
galloped around, neighing and kicking
np, but kept at a respectful distance.
They hate big, ugly beads and talis
and. ears like a mule's and a black
stripe down tbo back; color, light bay,
with white noses. They have tine free
action in trot and gallop and are fourteen to fifteen bauds high, strong in
the legs and heavy in tbe body. We
were welcomed by tbe neighing of numerous wild horses to tbe land of the
klang. Several herds kept circling
round, tbe old stallions approaching in
'a quite threatening manner, snorting,
squealing and kicking up their heels,
While tbe mares and foals galloped off
at a more respectful distance. There
was a herd of klnngs which careered
about our camp in a most objectionable way, making the most fearful disturbances. We witnessed a battle royal between two stallions, which for
ferocity and wicked fury surpassed any
fight I have seen. Again and again
the pair went at one another like tigers, biting and kicking and mauling,
the blood flowing freely, while the fearful yells and roars they kept up were
terrifying to hear. This went on for
hours. The horrible roars nnd shrieking! made by the wild horse when
fighting sound something like a noise
between a donkey's bray and tbe
squealing of a Jackal, but far more ear
piercing and discordant. Here tbo
klang is found ln considerable numbers. He is, accoMing to the Hunla
accounts, untamable. There was a
young one purchased) at Bagesar fair
from some Hunias for a small price.
The purchaser thought he had a good
bargain and proposed to send the animal to England, but when his men
went to bring away the purchase no

"A Hindoo stood ln a scale, and his

That," said a traveler, "was the strange

There was a great crowd looking on,
and it took a great many goldpieces to
equal the Hindoo's weight, for he was
fat. Finally, though, the big scale balanced, and then everybody began to
ahout: "Tulabharal Tulabbaral Tu-
labhara!" The fat man got out of the
acale. He and bis friends took tbe
gold, and, going through all the poorer
quarters of the town, they distributed
It among the destitute. This, I was Informed, was a kind of religious ceremony among a certain sect. Every
male at the time ln his life when lt

greatest was put in a scale, and gold to
equal him ln bulk was measured out

The great violin makers all lived
within the compass of 150 years. They
chose their wood from a few great timbers felled iu tbe south Tyrol and
floated down in rafts���pine and maple,
sycamore, pear and ash. They examined these to find streaks and veins
and freckles, valuable superficially

They learned to tell the dynasty of
the pieces of wood by touching them.
Tbey weighed them, they struck them
and listened to Judge how fast or how

portions of the wood must be porous

and he drifted down to Mexico and became a news agent. He sold lottery
tickets. He bad to report on drawing
day what unsold tickets he had and
forward them. He got drunk tbe day
before one of tbe big drawings. Two
days later be sobered up and found
himself ln possession of several hundred dollars' worth of unsold tickets.
He did not possess $10 in the world.
He examined tbe list and found that
a number of tb* unsold tickets bad
drawn prices aggregating $35,000 in
gold. He collected the winnings, paid
for tha unsold tickets and took an oath
of perpetual total abstinence. That
was years ago. He has never touched
liquor since and' is today a wealthy
man. The moral Is bad, but tbe story
ls too good to suppress.
"Rather absentmlnded, isn't he?"
"Extremely so. Wby, the other night
when he got home he knew there was
something he wanted to do, but he
couldn't remember what it was until
he had set up over an hour trying to

Leaead of the Looking Glass.
Who ever heard It stated tbat tha
looking glass was first Invented to spite
a pretty woman? And how would lt
be possible to spite a woman by showing her a perfect reflection of her own
dainty self? Well, according to Japanese mythology, the deity presiding
over the sun and furnishing light to the
world became Infuriated at some trifle
and hid herself away ln a cave, thus
depriving humanity of a very necessary element. In order to induce her
to come out tbe mirror was Invented

Very few remember the existence of
a certain remarkable statute which
was passed in the early days of George
III. if Indeed they ever heard of it It
runs to the effect that if any woman
"entices e��j ot his majesty's male subjects into marriage by the use of any
powders or paints or false hair or wool
on the cheeks she shall be prosecuted
for sorcery." What a cause celebre It
would be if any of his present majesty's male subjects were to endeavor
to put the law into action. What a
rush there would be of fashionable ladies to secure front seats in court for
the hearing.���London Tatler.

The population of fit Hilda, the moat
westerly of th* Inhabited Scottish lslea,
ia a unique on* in many respects. Tba
people are tlie most lonely in tbe United Kingdom, there being very little
communication wltb the mainland and
sometimes not for months at a stretch.
Socially the Islanders are practically a
commune. If tbe head of a household
Is injured or loses his life among tbe
rocks, his widow and family sHare in
the proceeds of their labor as if b*
were there to take part in it. If family
illness prevents any one joining ln th*
day's work, he is asked to stay at
home, and his Interests will not be lost
sight of. All questions, complaints,
etc., are determined by their mode, or
local parliament, whose Judgment la
final. Early morning conferences usually determine tbe day's tasks.
St. Kildlans are a most industrious
and active as well as a religious people, and on tlie island at any rate tb*
vexed problem-of church attendance
has been solved. Every man, woman
and child capable of leaving the household goes regularly to church, and
only some serious disability will keep
any person nt home.���Scottish American.
Influence of Children.
Childhood ln its weakness is often a
strength that resists tbe strain of all
the passions, and that holds even wben
deep hatred exerts its power to drive
"If it were not for the child, I would
not live with you another day," 1
beard an angry husband say to hia
wife, when righteous indignation drove
blm nearly to distraction.
That was quite a number of years
ago, and now they have two more children to strengthen the bond between
them. This Httfe episode of domestic
infelicity was recalled by some statistics that recently emanated from Berlin and which speak volumes.
These statistics have been carefully
gathered from the divorce courts, and
���bow that out of 1,000 divorces 540
were granted where there were no children, 214 where there was one child,
130 where there were two children, 00
where there were three children, 25
where there were four children, 12
where there were five children and 10
where there were six children.
He Wasn't  Toe Deaf.
Deafness ls largely a matter of habit,
���ays a writer in the New York Press. I
know men wbo cannot bear you two
feet away, though you bawl at them,
yet at the distance of a block they will
grasp your faintest whisper. Some are
deaf for convenience, some for fraud,
some for hypocrisy. Beware of the deaf
man. One of the noted deaf men was
old Matt Griffin, long ago an assemblyman from Griffin's Corners, Delaware
county, N. Y. By courtesy deaf members receive front seats In the assembly, while others usually draw lots.
Wben old Matt was excused from
drawing a fellow member hotly protested. "But the old man ls as deaf as
a post" said the house leader. "Deaf!"
exclaimed the protestaut "Matt Griffin deaf! Why, bless your honest soul,
be could bear a ten cent shinplaster
rattle in a bag of feathers!"
