U.S. Mail Sacks Taken From
the Carrier by Masked
Man at the Edge of
the Town.
Tom McKay Arrested for the Orime-
OlaitLS  the   Hold-up  Was   li
Joke—He May Pind it a
Very Serious One.
About 8 o'clock last Tuecday even-
;ug as the usual crowd was gathered in
front of tlie post oflico waiting for the
arrival of the stage!, they were startled by tho sudden arrival of a white
raced boy, on a wild-eyed cayuse, who
ilashed madly up to the front of tho
lost-office aud dropping to tho side walk
"lectrified the assemblage by announcing that he had just been relieved
• if the U. S. mail sacks by a masked
'lighwayraan  in tho very edge of town.
InBtantly   the   whole   town  wa*   in
n uprcar. Men aud boys rati back and
forth shouting excitedly to one another, while a messenger was inane
litttely sent out to Constable Dins
nore'a residence in the surbut'bs to
notify him of the holdup.
Ou his arrival  ho inleviowod  James
■ nsbor, the carrier, Chas. Euimert,
the mail contractor and several others
and finally arrested Tom. McKay, a
y mng man well known in those parts,
•'turning him with having committed
tie crime.
The strange part of the affair ie that
vhile the excitmjut was at its height
dome person as yet unknown brought
the stolen sacks into town and deposit.
"I them in the Pro-ipo dor's stable,
just where they shouldjbave boen loft
by the carrier.
James Cusber, the carrier, is a boy
about IT years of ago and was employed
by Emmert & Spoug, who had the cob*
t.'act to carry the U. S. mail from Nol-
s >n, on the reservation to their stables
in Grand ForkB, where connection was
made with tho Marcus stags lino. At
e irding to his story he was riding along
just as usual, not thinking of danger,
a; he was close to town, when, as he
was in tho very edgo of tha town, a
masked man suddenly appeared out of
the darkness and presenting a revolver
demanded the mail sacks. Ho was too
badly frightened to either miko any resistance or take a good look at his cap
tir.so is not able to give any definite
description of the highwayman.
Dropping the mail sacks he came to
town as fast as his horse could carry
iiitn, and gave the alarm.
Just  the grounds  upon which  Tom
McKay is chargod with the robbery
uati not be learned but it ie rumored
lliat he has confessed to holding the
carrier up but says it was only a joke
and that he only intended to scare
(.'usber. He claims, according to the
minor, that he did not use a revolver
in tho hold up but had a pair of clip-
pert which being nickle p lated glitter
id like a rovolvor barrel and thus
made Cusber think thut he was looking into a   revolver barrel.
On Thursday McKay was brought
up before P. T McCallum, J. I'., and
was remanded until this afternoon,
Tho authorities aro determined to p ush
lho caeo and if it should be proved that
McKay pcrpotrated the holdup, even if
it was intended as a practical joke, he
is liable to get the full exteutof the law.
Unless, as ia rgmored, MoKay has
confessed to the crime, the task of con*
victing him will bo an extremely diffi*
cult one as no ono can be found who
saw him bring the mail sacks into town
and Cusber cannot identify him as tha
n'an who held him up and thero is
nothing elso to connoct him with the
If he his confessed, the point remains to be raised as to whether or not
a robbery was committed when he took
the mail sacks from Cusber as both
wore in the employ of tho mail con
tractor aud the mail morely passed
rom the hands of one employee of the
contractor into tho hahds of another
person employed by the same man and
vas not delayed in transit as McKay
at once  brought it to town.
At present the chances look very
bright for McKay't- release when he is
brought up for a formal trial and his
friends feel very confident that this
.. i.l bo secured unless some unexpected
,'liase of  tho case turns up.
While all feel that such practical jokes
should be strongly discountananced still
they do not believe that the cane merits so severe a penalty as even tho
lightest Bcnntence ullowed to bo itnpos-
■d for  such a crime—live years.
This case should be a warning to
ill practical jokers aa at beat there ia
lotting smart in a practical joke and
iioy are often liable to turn out as
erioua as this one soetns likoly  to.

in every way a groat succsse, the music
which was provided by Meeers Sheads
und Hepworth was very Rood,
Ono feature of tho evening was a
general feeling of sociability among all
the guests, during the evening the

style by R. A. Brown. The supper was
served by Mrs. A. V. Davie, who is
noted for the libera1 manner in which
she always provides for her guests. Ab

the dance were to bo 'appropriated towards paying off tho littla debt'thai

Mr. John A, Manly, of the firm of
Manly it Averill, returned last woek
from a trip to the coast and California
tad is very euth 1 siastic oror the bright
mtlook for the Gran 1 Fo rka district foi
liio coming season.
Iu conversation   with a   Miner  reports Mr. Maniy stated   that he foun 1 the
people it Victoria, Vancouver and tho
''.her coast   cities  deeply interested in
1 lis section  and very  eager  to receive
auy information relative to it.   Tho district, he says, is also wall kn .wu in Oali*
' irnia and a large lulluj- of hotnesoekers
•fid  investors    may bo   expected   from
aere next summer.    In  fact   at  nrery
place   he  visted  on   his trip  he found
Clrand KorkB and the surrounding terri-
■ iry well and favorably spoken of.
The general opinion regarding this
•-■H-tion seeing to be that it is at about
'ho same sta^e of development that
Rossland was throe years ago and that
a man can got hold of goo 1 prop9rties
lere for much smaller figures than the
mine grade of property can be obtained
at Rosslund. As a consequence this
lountry is, if anything, tn ire talked of
than Rossland just at present.
In Rossland, also, Mr. Manly found
tho Grand Porks district well thought
'f and ho was atruclt by the absence of
jealousy of this section displayed by tho
press and public of Rossland.
In reply fo a query as to tha prospoctfl
if a railroad for this section he sail he
considered it extremely probable that a
.•oad would bo at least started into this
-icction some time during the coming
■-oasonand the chances woro very much
in favor of one being built clear into
the Forks before snow flies next winter.
Mi*. C'orbin has stated that he will
put a surveying party in the field af
soon as possibe to Iry and locate a prac
tioable route to Grand Forks from
Northport on tho Columbia and up tho
Kettle River valley. If such a route
can be found it will shorten the line
many mileB, do away with an extra
bridge at Marcus or Bossburg and
greatly expedite tho construction of a
railway into out* camp.
"As regards the incorporation of the
town" said he "I consider it the bost
thing we could possibly do, more en-
pocially as tho bill for incorporation callB
for tho mayor and aldermen to receive
no salary and it will require a special
act to make the ollices salaried. Tho
govermont collects hundreds of dollars
every year iu taxes and licences from
(irand ForKs and tho money goes into
somo other part of the province. Now
if we were incorporated this money
would go into grading our streets and
improving our town instoad of going to
help some othor part of tho province,
rtossland has sutfered greatly because it
was not incorporated and tho peoplo of
(irand Forks should sot- to it that they
do not get into the same trouble.
"The present government is extremely
friendly toward this section of the coun
try aud we may expect some valuable
assistance from them during the coming
session of the legislative assembly.
Among other things which wo are reasonably sure of obtaining are the establishment of a recorder's office at tiraiul
FirkB, the appointment of a stipendary
magistrate and the removal of the custom's house to (Irand I'Vks. Indeed
the recorder's office is already assured
and wliil 1 the Larne of the new recorder
lias not been made public as yet it is
understood that tho appointment hap
already been made.
"It ia also pioposed to make Grand
Forks a port of entry with out ports af
Cascade City and Carson but whether
or not this will be done is not yet a
"A bridge across Kettle river at Edward's Ferry is badly needed and the
government has offered fo give #1,001'
towards its construction if the residents
of tilb district will raise the balance.
This means a groat dril to every town
in this section and I feel sure that the
bridge will bo built before the summer
is over.
"There is considerable talk just at
present about the proposed law prohibiting Americans aud foreigners holding
mioeraf claims in British Columbia but
1 do no't'believo the bill will pass. A
inuiiilied form requiriug foreigners to
declare, their intention of becoming citizens *bejoro taking up tumoral claims
may possibly bo passed and I consider
such a law do more thuu fair as it is
almost identical with the United States
law regarding aliona and it is a Very
poor rule which will not work both ways.
"1 expect to see work commenced on
both the Volcanic and Seattle mines
early iu the spring and thoy Will bo in
shape to ship oro whenever transportation facilities are afforded.",
Mr. Oumminge, tho manager of the
new townsite compauy, is expected back
in the Forks about tho loth of this
month and then active operations will
be commenced in making Grand Forks
tho leading city, as it is already the natural distributing point, of the great
Kettle River district. WA81GREAT FISHING ONCE
Il   the    Columbia    Were    Restocked,
I inli-i* l'rii|irr II est i-ict inns,   lhe
Indus! i->     ■!,:   ii.   Thrive.
The sturgeon, once so common, is i fifch
now rarely Been in il" 1'.nil oul markets,
says tlie Oregonlan. Although highly
isi.,nnd in .inn. countries and finding
u n ady sale in iu.- cities of the oust, . ■
pecially In a smoked condition, It navel
was much of a favorite here, being chiefly used by cheap hotels ami restaurants,
u hen   ii   h i     erved  up under ils-  name
oi      sea   bass"   or   "fillet   of   sole."
.\ [i \\ years since parties came hero and
engaged in tin- business of Bhlpplng sturgeon ■ i. and tlie fishermen went Into
in, business of oatchlng them wholesale,
ami soon tin- Columbia was Btrung with
Bturgeon lines as numerous is tho streets
uf Portland an- with   electric   wires, ami
I links hy the lou were set lot' tile doomed
sturgeon,     Fish    Commissioner     James
Crawford   has   stated   that   over    1.	
pounds of Bturgeon was shipped from tin
Columbia river in 1892, and also that over
liu.'ieu pounds of caviare, sturgeon ckms,
was shipped the same year.
The number of sturgeon caught during
lhe winter und spring of 1892-93 in tho Columbia was over lo.UUO, more than 20 per
cent of which were small flsh. It is unnecessary to say that but few have been
shipped since, but us It was not practicable to catch them all at onee, there ate
siill a few In tin.' river, but It i.s seldom
any lind their way to this market.
Although there is no difficulty in pro-
curlng sturgeon cues, and the method of
propagating them arttfically is well understood, no stepB so far have beon taken
toward restocking the Columbia.
If the river were restocked and the llsh-
Ing placed under some proper restrictions,
it might again become a source of great
profit to the fishermen, It might be a
work of some difficulty to strip a female
Bturgeon of her eggs, but It would not be
necessary to handle many of them, for
the full-grown fish yield on an average of
lu gallons, which at 16K.0OO eggB to tho
gallon, makes 1,680,900 cegs to the fish.
A dozen or two llsh would yield eggs
enough to stock any river.
Just what legislation in regard to fish
Is comlnt,- beforo lhe legislation ts not
known, but fishermen should not forget
to have something done to protect the
steelhead salmon and the sturgeon, which
aro now In course of being exterminated
at a rapid rate.
Power noil  Feeling Restored  to un
Ann  Paralyzed by Injury.
Robson has reported the case of a gardener 2'.l years or age who sustained a
deep incision on the lower and inner part
of the right upper arm. with division of
the brachial artery, by falling on a scythe
says tho I'.riiisii Medical Journal. The
artery was felted by the attending sur-
geon and the two ends of a divided nerve
were sutured. Tlie wound healed slowly
by granulation, but finally closed, leaving
the muscles of the wrist and hand supplied by the ulnar and median nerves
paralyzed, while those supplied by the
museul'o-spiraJ nerve retained their motility. Sensibility was lost in the same distribution, and also in that of the Internal
cutaineoUH nerve.
An operation was subsequently undertaken, an incision bring made along the
line of tho sear, and prolonged some distance upward und downward, and supplemented by a traverse incision about
an inch above the elbow. The lower end
ot Uhe upper segment of the ulnar nerve,
which was bulbous, was found to be connected by fibrous tissue with tho upper
end of the lower segment. A small nerve
was found at the upper part of tho wound
which proved to be the internal cutaneous. The lower end of the same nerve
was found subsequently and united to the
upper with a catgut suture. After considerable search the bulbous lower end of the
upper segment of the median nerve was
discovered at about the middle of the upper arm, concealed by tho belly of tho biceps muscle, and the upper end of the lower segment expanded and sending ramifications Into the scar, was found subsequently just above the bend of the elbow.
The librous tissue between the ends of
the ulnar nerve was cut out and the two
healthy portions were united by grafting
strands of Mie sciatic nerve of a rabbit,
so as to 1111 up tiho gap u/nd establish continuity. It was not possible to bring the
divided ends of the meridian nerve closer
together than 2',i Inches. In tho absence
of more suitable tissue, the spinal cord
of a rabbit just killed was used as a graft
to connect tho ends of the median nerve
the inserted cord lying loose and quite
free from tension when finally placed in
position. Fine catgut sutures were used
throughout. The edges of the wound
were brought together, the usual dress-
inns applied, and the arm was ilxed upon
a rectangular splint. Union took place
by "lirst Intention," with a total absence
of fever and pain.
Eleven days after the operation the patient could feel ihe scratch of a pin on
tb" front side of ihe lirst section of the
thumb, 08 well   is at Ih.- root of the index
linuer.    II mid  tell  when  the hairs ou
'be bock of ibe first section of the ring
ami lillle finger were touched, but could
not feel lhe scratch of a pin In t'hnt situation. Seven days later sensation hnd returned over lhe whole of lhe palmar sur-
f.iee   oi   the   thumb  olid   the*   second   sec
tion of the Index finger. After a further
interval oi sixteen days sensation seemed
to be creeping slowly along the lirst llll-
ger and lo be present over Che whole of
tho palmar area supplied by the median
nerve, and extending down as far as the
web of the lingers and a short distance
along    the    middle    linger.   The    muscles
presented evidences of gradual development ami ihe general nutrition of the
hand improved. Slight power of grasp
and some power of ilexlon of the wrist
returned, with slight power of bending
the thumb and fingers. Sensation was
present nil over the lihumb and Index linger and in the second finger up to the
first section on the palmar surface; also
ln the third linger, though less distinct.
In tlie course of several weeks more
sharp shooting pains began to be felt in
the distribution of the ulnar nerve, and
the llexor muscle of the forearm began to
react the galvanism. Improvements thus
continued, when the patient was lost to
observation, and then was not seen again
until after the lapse of six years. The
man 'had continued the tise of galvanism
for a time and did not resume his work
until more tha.n a year after his accident.
During tho subsequent live years he had
not missed a day's employment, attending
to all 'his duties, from wheeling a well laden barrow to using a scythe. On exam-
inution, the right arm was found scarcely
smaller than tihe left, and power had returned to all of the muscles except the
abductor of the thumb. Sensibility had
also been restored, and the electric reactions wore normal except in the muscle
Spectacles  Used   of  Old.
A monk named Rlvnlto, ln a sermon preached at Florence ln 1305, said that spectacles were
first used ln the year 1285.
Believe Human Being* Were Created
to Minister to Their Wants.
The cat was a solitary roamer, whose
companions were the trees of its native
forests. It found a home ln the hollow
trunks and safety among the branches,
says a writer in the North American Review. How do we know that the cat's
ancestors were dwellers In the forests?
Because every kitten tukes to a tree as
readily as a duck to water. Also, because nearly ail forest dwellers are mottled in color, so that they may not be
conspicuous among the light and shadows
beneath the trees. While I was considering what was the probable view held by
rats about human beings, it was suggested by one Ingenious friend that probably
i lu-.. regard man as a kind of locomotive
tree, pleasant to rub against, the lower
limbs of which afford a comfortable seat,
oul from whose upper branches occasionally drop tld-blts of minion and oilier
luscious fruits. We may laugh at the
theory, but it lias quite a respectable
string of lads behind It to back It up. If
lie Kanakas alKlled from the pig to till
burse, why should not the cut pass from
the familiar tree to the unfamiliar organization culled man?
The cat, In spite of the domestic char-

New Jersey's Famous Jack-Pot*
The old -settlers around Cedar lake, Atlantic county, New Jersey, are still talking ahout a remarkable* poker same that
was played there away back In the '40s.
the principal features of which were a
series of stranye deals and an enormous
jack pot, says a correspondent ol' the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat.
As the neighborhood chroniclers tell it,
il happened In this way: in 1845 the pine
forests around Cedar lake were hunting
grounds for sportsmen from New
York and Philadelphia. Deer were
plentiful In those days .".lid every
fall and winter Isaac iluli-
ron, who kept a tavern on tin.' Egg Harbor turnpike, in the heart of the pines,
did a land olllce business.
When the sportsmen were not out ranging the woods in search of name On y
put In their time tolling stories and playing cards In the big reception room uf the
tavern, and It is recorded that enough
money changed hands under the roof ot
the llobron tavern, before lire swept it
out of existence, to buy every Inch el
land In Atlantic county at $1U an acre.
William Traverse, George Whllcomb,
Harvey Duncan and Richard Potter, prosperous merchants from Wilmington, Del.,
played the stiffest game that was put up
at the tavern. They came to the pines
regularly every fall and stayed two
weeks, during which time any man who
happened to be around the premises could
get Into a real swift game of poker If he
felt disposed any time that the Wilmington quartet happened to be around.
One afternoon the four men got around
a table and started a game. They rarely played together, and when they did
their playing was watched with a good
deal of Interest by other guests, because
a pot with $11)00 or $5000 ln it was a common thing.
Made a Jack Pot.
The four men on this particular afternoon played a listless game for a couple
of hours, occasionally stowing away
within themselves one of B.Obron's famous apple jack toddles. Finally the toddies livened the men up and more ginger
was put into the game. But force it as
they did, it was impossible for one of
them to get much the best of another,
and at the end of three hours' playing
they found that each had pretty nearly
his original capital.
At last Traverse dealt and he was "given" an opportunity to make a jack pot,
which he did. The ante was %1, and every
time the "widow" was fattened meant %'.!
to the man who could win the pot.
Traverse passed the cards to Whitcomb.
who quickly dealt them! Nobody caught
"openers" and the pack went to Potter,
who failed to do any better than Whitcomb had, and the cards went to Duncan, who said as he picked them up and
prepared to deal:
"I'll give you all openers, boys, so that
you can get a little fun for your money."
But he didn't. The best hand out was
held by Traverse, and that was ace high.
Ten times the cards were dealt, and nobody caught an opening pair. In the center of the table was a pile of bank notes
that made the spectators' eyes water.
"I never saw anything like that before,"
said Potter, "since 1 began to play cards.
These cards have been dealt 41 times and
nobody has got as high as a pair of
jacks.   It beats the d—1."
Some sort of witchery appeared to have
gotten into the cards. Forty-four more
times they were dealt and not a man
caught openers.
The game began about 4 o'clock ln the
afternoon and it was now about 11 o'clock
at night. The pile of money on the table
grew gradually and the crowd around the
players became more deeply interested.
The players worked till 12 o'clock, and
yet the jact pot had not been opened,
"I move that we adjourn for one hour,"
said Potter; "perhaps if we get away
from the table a little while our luck'll
The men agreed to take a rest for an
hour. The money In the pot was taken in
charge by Hobron, and the crowd was
treated to steaming toddies in rapid succession by the four players.
A Kun of Hard Luck.
"I never saw cards run that way before in my life," said Traverse. "I think
the devil's in 'em, and he may stay there
for a month. I'd be just as well pleased
to let each man take his money out of
the pot and stop the game."
"Not much," said Potter. "If the devil's
really In the cards I'm going to stay with
'em till he comes out. That jack pot's
worth having now, and I'm going to try
to get it."
Whitcomb and Duncan took the same
view of it that Potter did and It was
agreed that at 1 o'clock the game should
be resumed and it was.
The cards were dealt until 4 o'clock in
the morning and nobody had been able to
open the jack pot, which had now grown
to splendid proportions.
The crowd surrounding the players became excited over the strange run of the
cards, and they began to wager among
themselves that certain deals would bring
"openers" to some one of the players. At
last some of the men became so boisterous through their interest ln the game
and the exhilaration of iiob-
ron's toddies that It was
decided to lay the game over until
the afternoon, when it would be continued from the point where It was dropped.
The cards had been dealt L'.'is times anil
no man bad held as high as a pair of
Jacks. The Jack pot now had something
like $1100 In it, and each man was anxious
to win It.
The players went to bed, hunleil in tha
forenoon and at. 4 o'clock in the afternoon

A new pack of cards was demanded by
Traverse,    "if the devil's lu that pack we
bad last night," said he,  "we'll see how
quick he can shift."
His satanlc majesty appeared tu be
equal to the test he was put to, fur deal
aftor deal was made, and not a man was
strong enough to open the pot.
Supper was brought to the players, and
they ate It from the card table. After it
was over playing was resumed, but with
no change in the run ot cards.
Finally Potter suggested that Hobron
be permitted to cut the pack. He did,
but it mado no difference. Then different
men were called upon to "slice" the pack,
but that brought no change.
At 1 o'clock Whitcomb remarked that
he feared the devil had started out to
break them all, and then take the jack
pot himself. The dealing continued till 4
o'clock with no "openers" out, and then
another 12-hour adjournment of the game
was taken, and there was then in the
jack pot nearly $2500.
The crowd was wild. The men who
had lost money on the deals were bewailing their hard luck and the men who had
won their money were jubilant over their
success. But the one man who was supremely happy, no matter whether the
men won or lost, was Isaac Hobron, because his toddles sold under any and all
circumstances at 15 cents each.
The game opened in the afternoon at
the appointed hour, with a crowd on
hand, and the cards were not inclined to
change the style of running that they
had adopted two days before. The low
cards were paired, but nobody was able
to catch two "picture cards" of the same
For 11 hours the cards were dealt and
nobody bad been able- to upen tile jack

than $800.

Finally Traverse brought his list down
on Hie table with a thump and said:
"Boys, let's send a nigger to May's
Landing for a pack of cards. I reckon
that'll change our luck."
The proposition was favored and a
negro was dispatched on horseback for
lb,, cards. It was a lung an.I tedious
journey in those days, nnd it was several
hours before the negro returned. When
he 'lid Un- men Bat down ami opened the
game once inure. Traverse shuttled the
cards and Hobron cm them. They were

"Patten the wldder," said Poller, and
the dollars wenl up to the pile. It was
Potter's deal. "Where's the nigger that
got   these  cards?"   he  asked.
"Ilyar, sab," called out the man from
the crowd.
"Come over here." commanded Potter.
The negro came over where Potter sal.
"Kiss those cards," said he, "anil I'll give
you a  dollar."
Without hesitation theilegro kissed the
cards,  took  ills dollar and retired.
"That means openers for somebody,"
remarked Potter as he threw the cards
"J'II open it for $1000," calmly remarked
Everybody whistled.
"It's worth staying fur," said Whitcomb.   "Give me live cards."
Everybody took live cards excepting
Duncan, who drew two, and then bet
$1500 that the pot was his. Traverse and
Whitcomb dropped out. Pel ter raised
Dune-ail's bet $2000, and was promptly suspected  of  bluffing.
Duncan saw the S2000 and raised it tlio
cool sum of $5000.
"I call you," said Potter.
"Three kings,"  said  Dutienn.
"Four deuces," said Potter, "That was
a pretty good live card draw, and I'm going to give that nigger $50 for kissing the
cards," and he did.

ted in France.
The news comes from Paris that tho
former Assistant Secretary or the Colonics, Deputy Etiennes, intends at the next
meeting of the French Chamber to offer
a decimal subdivision ot time for universal adoption, as described in tin: Phila
dolphin Record somo Time ago.
The day is divided into ten hours, the
hour Is 100 minutes and the minutes into
100 seconds, making 1,000 minutes or 100,-
000 seconds per day.
The hour hand always points in the direction of the sun. Consequently as the
day begins and ends ut midnight, the
hour hand points downward, as also do
the minute hand and second hand, at the
exact time of the change of day, or 10
o'clock. Thence it rises with tho sun in
its apparent motion around tho earth,
points to the zenith at noon, after which
It descends until It reaches its extreme
lower point again at midnight. Thus the
hour hand makes but one revolution
around the dial oaoh day. It is, then, the
ligure X on tho dial at which the hour
band commences and ends each day, the
minute hand each hour, and tho second
hand each minute.
The time indicated by the decimal clock
in always positive time. While li o'clock
a. m. is represented decimally by 2:30
o'clock, and G o'clock p. m. is represented
by 7:50, noon is represented by 5 o'clock
and midnight by 10 o'clock.
It provides a standard timo for the entire globe. It is proposed to divide the
terrestrial globe into 1,000 degrees of longitude, corresponding with the 1,000 minutes of the day, and, by grouping them
Into 20 seconds of 50 degrees each, establish standard time for tho whole world.
Giving to Greenwich, where the counting of the meridians begins, the midnight
meridian, and making it 1,000 degrees,
the 20 sections would all be reckoned east
of Greenwich and ail tlio way around the
It Is said that this decimal system of
timo originated ln America, being the in.
vention of a United States citizen, although probably the French will be the
lirst to recognize and adopt it.

He Penniless.
Few of the many friends of "Mark
Twain" (Samuel L. Clemens) know of
the plucky tight he Is making with adversity, or how badly he has been used by
fortune, says a London  cable.
In a word, Mark Twain, who u few
years ago thought himself a Hob man, is
today worse than penniless.
Since his return from Africa a few
months ago, he has been living In very
modest lodgings in London, going nowhere and seeing but one or two friends,
working all day and every day at a history of his trip around tho world.
With the proceeds of this book he hopes
lo be able to pay uff Ills creditors anil
leave something for his family.
Mark Twain lost practically everything
when Webster * Co, foiled, and the lecture trip urotind the world, whloh he undertook with the hope of retrieving his
fortune, did not turn out a llnanelal success for him.

that heretofore was supposed to belong
exclusively to tne Jesse James section of

lias been a jail delivery ill which  masked
men, several wicked looking guns, and a

Belated pedestrians who happened on
the streets Saturday evening about half
past 11 were startled at hearing three revolver shots fired in quick succession in
the neighborhood of the court house. A
moment later Deputy District Attorney
Daly, who has rooms In the federal building, enme tearing down the street with
the information that masked friends of
"Slim" Birch had overpowered the guard,
taken the cell keys, and released the
prisoner. The affair took place shortly
after 11 o'clock, at a time when the building was deserted save for the presence
of the prisoners, one guard, and Mr. Daly,
who fortunately happened In at tho unusually early hour.
Arriving al tin* Jail.
Upon arriving at the jail the determined
men quietly passed through the corridor
stopping at the room occupied by the
guard. Gus Llndqulst. They knocked at
the door and when Lindquist responded
by opening it he found himself looking
down the barrels of two six shooters. The
spokesman of the three men ordered him
to bo quiet nnd to unlock the door leading to the cells without any unnecessary
delay. Without stopping to argue the
matter with the gentlemen the bolts were
quickly drawn and they passed Into tho
cell corridor. The jailer was then politely requested to hand over his cell keys
and almost before he realized what was
taking place Birch was a free man and
had joined his companions. Lindquist
was hustled into the empty cell, his gun
was coniiscated, nnd the men were off,
not even pausing to say good-by or leave
any message as to their future address.
As soon as they had gotten out of hearing the captive guard began beating a
tattoo on the walls and finally succeeded
In arousing Mr. Duly from his peaceful
slumbers, who released him from his embarrassing position as soon as he could
change his pajamas for habiliments more
suitable for presentation In public.

While discussing the effect ot the re*
moval of the quarantine on the Kootenay
market fur Alberta beef, the Herald ot
(lalgary says:
Healers and ranchers do not hesitate
iu say that unless the government fives
the west an equivalent tor the quarantine our market in Kootenay Is doomed.
'I'b.' whole of Alberta will be disastrously affected and lust,-ad of the dawn of
better times that already appeared above
tbc oi norolal horizon an ominous cloud
uf disaster and ruin and continued hard
times is Impending.
A representative of the Herald Interviewed l'at Bums un the matter. He
considered ihe removal of the quarantine the worst blow that has ever been
struck at Alberta. Mr. Hums has built
up In an ulmost Incredibly short time one
of the largest meat businesses ln Canada. Two years ago be Imported only 50
head of cattle a month to Kootenay. One
y.ar ago the number had Increased to
150 a month. Last summer It had grown
to -ir.il a month and at present it has
reached the respectable figure of between
r,r.il and 000 per month. Mr. Hums eonll-
dently expects that within six months
Kootenay will be consuming 10110 head a
The cattle are required chielly for the
mining trade. Huge quarters of beef are
sunt out to all the working mines and It
would gladden the heart of an Alberta
rancher to see the rapidity with which
they disappear. For the lown trade mutton and pork are ln keen demand. At
present Mr. Burns Imports most of his
hogs and sheep from the neighboring
states south of the line. His trade re-
quires 1B00 head of sheep and 700 hogs
per month. Owing to the duty on American pork he could buy to much better
advantage in Alberta, but so far the
farmers here have only been able to supply a mere fraction of the demand.
"Take the Edmonton country," said
Mr. Hums, "their cattle are too small for
the liritish markets. We have been buying all they have for sale. 1 am paying
3Vi cents live weight for April delivery
and j'/i cents for May and June delivery,
but this quarantine business will put a
stop to that. It means that we can't look
at this country any more. We must go
to the states for our cattle. Where are
the. people along the C & E. going to sell
their cattle if not in Kootenay? 1 am
feeding 1000 head of cattle in Alberta now
and have 1000 more bought. The Kootenay will take nearly 10,000 head of cattle

An Increased Duty.
"How would an increased duty, as suggested by the Herald, affect the business?"   asked  our  representative.
"That would till the bill all right. A
35 per cent duty would be high enough to
keep the market for the Canadian farmer. Twenty per cent Is not enough. The
difference in freight amounts to more
than the duty. With a 35 or -10 pel cent
duty the Americans could not compete
with Alberta. All your surplus local cattle, after the 'tops' are shipped,to England, could have found a market in Kool-
enay if the quarantine had been retained,
but there is no use expecting it now, unless the government put on a higher
"How will liritish Columbia cattle men
be affected?"
"Just as badly as those in Alberta," an
swered Mr. Burns. "It means ruination
to British Columbia ranching If something is not done."
"How are freight rates now?"
"You can say that freight rates are
greatly Improved. The C. P. R. were
slow In seizing their opportunities, but
they now begin to realize what can be
done in that country. They are giving
cheaper and quicker transportation than
they were and there is not much to complain about now in the matter of shipping. Now that they own the boats shipping is much easier."
"How long does it take to get cattle
from say Calgary to Nelson?"
"About three days."
"Do you import much  dressed meat?
"Quite a bit.   We ship a large quantity
from Calgary and some from Winnipeg.'
"Does the Winnipeg beef go via the C.
P. H.?"
"No, we send through tho states.
"How is that?"
"The American roads can carry it right
into Rossland or Nelson without transshipping, whereas by the C. P. R. it has
to be transferred two or three times to
the boats, etc."
"Then the Crows Nest Pass railway
would improve matters?"
"It ecntainly would, by furnishing a direct and cheap means of getting Canadian
products to the mining country. With
the Crows Nest Pass railway and a duty
of 85 per cent on live cattle Alberta need
fear no competition."
A     TERRAPIN'S     LOVE     OF     HOfviE. : *<W»*i*<***-»-»<»-*-3-9*9-»l>-»<»
Caiitt'lit, Marked anil  Released Thret
Times, It Returns to Its Abode.
The devotion of a laud terrapin to its
heme is well illustrated by a story from
Paoli, Ind., says the New York World. In
1S40 Miss Davie Peele of that city was 10
years old. While in the woods one day
she came upon one of these creatures and
took it home. Its curious ways pleased
her and she put it in a box to keep as a
pet. The little prisoner refused food and
chafed at confinement. As the young
lady was about to release the terrapin
some one suggested that she carve her
name in its shell. She did this, adding
the date.   The little animal was let go.
Ten years later Miss Peele married
County Clerk Wlble, of Orange county.
One day she found herself in the vicinity
where she had lirst discovered tlie terrapin. To her great surprise she again found
the little fellow In a few feet of where
she first saw It. Her name and the date
were as plain as when she put them
there, The terrapin was again made prisoner to show her friends the marvelous
lind. Again tracing her new name on the
shell she released her captive. The date,
ISi'O, was put ou.
After many years Mrs. Wlble became a
widow, removing to Hutchinson, Kan.
There she married Dr. McKinney, and
still resides there.
in the Burner or 1872 Mrs. McKinney
visited her old home at Paoli. A search
again revealed the terrapin at its old
abode. Again she curved her changed
name on the shell. It was tho talk of
the little town. Returning to her western
home Mrs. McKinney thought little of
her terrapin until a friend In 1895 sent
her a copy of a local paper containing
the facts. The terrapin had been again
found and the date of 1895 carved on its
buck. It was found right where It had
been first discovered by Miss Peele. Each
time it had been released near the center of the little town and had found its
way to Its original home.
IS     NOT     LIKELY     TO     ABDICATE.
Victoria  Will Keep Iter Hopeful Son
OH tlie Throne n Little Longer.
Notwithstanding the prominence given by
a London paper to a report that Victoria will
abdicate the position of queen of Bngland and
empress of India in fnvor of her son, Albeit
Edward, It would lie best not to be too certain of that until the necessary papers are ull
signed, scaled and delivered. The house of
Hanover Is not much given to abdication.
Victoria's grandfather was insane during a
considerable part uf his reign, and a regent
ruled in Ills stead for many years. But George
was not much Inclined to submit to a regency
when he was known to lie Insane, and as to
abdicating lie did not do that at all, but came
within a fraction of reigning GO years. Vio-
toria has .lone the same, thouRh the traction
necessary to complete her fill years is smaller
than was that of George III. at his death.
The notion that Albert Edward Is badly
needed on the throne of England is no doubt
very prevalent among the members of the
prince of Wales' set. Hut tills Is a very small
set as compared with the people of Great
Britain, most of whom know that It is entirely Immaterial who Is on the throne of
England. The king, or queen, Is said to reign,
though not to rule, u very nice euphemism,
which means that he or she has the nominal
title of sovereign, without possessing any sovereignty! that the real sovereignty Is vested
tn a committee of the two houses oi parliament, who do not care a bawbee whether they
rule the country ln the name of Victoria or of
Albert Edward. If they ruled It In the name
ot the Ahkound of Swat, they would advocate
precisely the same measures that thoy do now.
and oppose the same as now. It Is only when
the British electors change their minds at a
general election that any change of policy
occurs, which being Interpreted means that
the majority of the house of commons, elected
by the people, rules Great Britain, Ignores the
royal family when it pleases, and makes dukes
and marquises, earls, viscounts and barons at
Its will.

The winter is rather an exacting season
upon live stock, not necessarily by any
nu ons. bul because of the neglect of their
owners, says the Province of Victoria, B.
C. Cold weakens the vitality of an animal
very much, thus when animals are exposed to our cold chilling winter rains
the foundation is often laid for disease,
.Mid when spring comes the effects of
such exposure and poor feeding are seen
in the gaunt frames, too weak to rise up,
the hidebound skin, the cough, and the
deadly blackleg. If one passes the hand
over the skin of a sick animal, the lame
quarter will be found puffed up, and a
(rackling, rustling sound will be heard.
After death these spots will be black and
bloody, as if the flesh had been bruised
to a Jelly. The liver Is soft and rotten,
and the spleen Is black like clotted blood.
This Is anthrax fever, sometimes called
bloody murrain, or black quarter, and Is
one of Hie most deadly diseases to which
cattle are subject. There is no time for
any remedy; prevention is the only safo-
giiurd, and just now is the time for this.
Feed the young animals well. Do not turn
them Into the fields or swamps to pick up
rubbish, dry grass, etc. (jive a regular
dose of a table spoonful of a mixture of
one pint of molasses, four ounces of sulphur and two ounces of cream of tartar
every morning, as soon as the weather
begins to get warm, and give them as
much salt as they will take voluntarily
from this time forward. There Is another ailment to which cattle are very
subject ill the spring, sometimes called
horn all, hollow horn, etc. This consists
of a feverish condition of the system and
a low vitality, accompanied by low circulation. Tlie disease is not in tlie horns or
in tho head, It Is In the stomach, as any
one can realize whose stomach is out of
order, and who has a "sick headache"
from a. bilious condition of the system.
The remedy then is to relieve the stomach and liver by a liberal dose of physic,
a quart of raw linseed oil, or 24 ounces of
Epsom salts, and follow it up with some
comforting messes of warm bran mash.
Tail all Is another result of a poor condition of the animal, in which this extremity suffers. The above remarks apply to
this ease too, and an excellent remedy Is
prevention, by good care and generous
house. Different substances gather on the
outside, gradually work their way
through until they not only discolor the
bacon, but give it an unpleasant taste.

Over half a century ago a remarkable

"Poultry Keeping for Profit," the latesl
bulletin from the Nortli Carolina station,
lias these practical suggestions:
If you wish to be successful with poultry do not undertake too much at first.
Begin with a few fowls and study their
lie bits and wants, and then gradually in-
ciease their number.
If, after pun basing pure-bred fowls,
they do not begin laying at once, don't
get Impatient! all they want Is a little
time to accustom themselves to their new
surroundings; then, If they don't begin.
you may make up your mind that their
feed Is not right.
If your hens do not lay, or lay double-
yolked or soft-shelled eggs, they are too
fat, and more wheat or oats (and no corn)
should be fed; also require them to
scratch for all grain they eat.
If your space Is limited, keep only a few
fowls, and let the few be very line ones,
as It costs no more to feed a prize-winner
than It docs a scrub.
If you have plenty of space, it is best to
separate the males from the females, and
the hens from the pullets, as the growing
pullets need more food thnn the mature
hens. If allowed to run together, it Increases your feed bill und Invites disease
among the hens, as they will become too
If there are any left-over vegetables,
meat or bread-scraps from the table, give
them to the poultry, as it will pay better
than to give them to the hogs.
If your chicks have crooked breastbones
It was no doubt caused by roosting on
small poles too early. Allow them to sit
down on clean straw until they are over
half grown.
If your young chicks stand around and
sleep, it Is then quite evident that you
are trying lo raise poultry and lice on the
same amount of food. Look at the little
fellows at once and see if you do not lind
lice on their heads, under wings, under
and over vent. Get rid of them by the
use of remedies already given.
If there are any points not fully described in this bulletin, write us for information.
Erect your poultry houses long before
your chicks are ready for them. Clean
the houses at least once a week, and
sprinkle lime or land plaster over the
Do not neglect to give the fowls fresh
water at least twice a day In winter.
Experience is the greatest teacher in
tho poultry business, and the mistakes
serve as mile-posts to keep the breeder on
the right road to success. Get all the experience you can and avoid making the
same error twlcjc.
Keep your poultry houses well whitewashed, inside especially, ln cleaning the
houses and yards do not forget the nest
boxes, as they probably harbor more lice
than any other part of the plant. For
nests we prefer boxes about the size of a
soap box and placed outside of the house.
They can be kept free from lice by burning the straw in them once or twice per
month in summer and every 00 days ln
Charcoal broken to the size of a grain
of corn Is greatly relished by the fowls,
as it cleanses the system. Keep it always
before them.
Season all soft food with salt. A small
quantity of flaxseed meal mixed twice per
week in the morning mash is very beneficial. It makes the plumage glossy and
tends to keep tho comb and wattles in
good condition.
Havo a good dust bath on hand for the
fowls always and provide a plentiful supply of grit If they are kept In small runs.

There has been watchmaking at Coventry as long as there lias been a watch
trade in England, which Is tor the last
200 years or thereabouts, says the Jewelers' Review. There used to be three
centers of the English trade, these being
Liverpool. Coventry and London; now
there are practically but two, Coventry
and Birmingham. The test of a good
watch Is that it should obtain a Kew certificate, and of the watches that go to
Kew, 75 per cent are from Coventry.
At Kew no watch has yet succeeded in
getting the 100 murks which signify perfection, but Coventry has come tho nearest, with 92. nnd is always well to the
front. The Kew tost Is no light one. The
watch is tested In every position and Its

hour; it is hung by Its pendant, hung upside clown, hung on each side, placed dial
down and back down, and at any number
of angles, and to finish up with is baked
in an oven and frozen ln an ice pail. No
wonder that a watch with a Kew certificate Is a comfort lo Its owner.

18,000 vibrations an hour and must not
vary a second a week, while a quarter
turn of its two time screws, meaning the
millionth of an Inch, will mukc a difference of 20 seconds a day, the delicacy of
its adjustment will be appreciated, as will
also the risk of intrusting its repair to
any but skilled hands.

Several   Recipes    That    May    I'rovo
Proll table.
There   Is   not   as   much   system   about
curing meat on the farm as there should
be.   Pork Is often cured so saltily that It
can  hardly  be said to   be palatable,   the
hams are poorly cured, and often no attempt at all is made to cure bacon. There
is seldom to be found good corned beef.
One reason, no doubt, for the lack of the
latter Is  the fact that but few  farmers
ever kill beeves on the farm, and to sell
at  the cheap  wholesale  rates,  and   then
buy back  a quarter of beef  to  corn,   is
too expensive, as the farmer has to pay
the  profits   of   the  wholesale   purchaser,
the middleman and the retail dealer.    If
farmers   would   make   the   endeavor,   no
doubt  they  could    lind    neighbors    thai
would  readily purchase what surplus of
good, fat steer they cared  to dispose of
for   the   self   same  purpose   of   corning.
There should  be  more  variety  in  meats
on the farmer's table than there generally is.   Dr. Galen Wilson, in his special
correspondence   for    Farm    and    Home,
sends  the  following valuable recipes for
curing meats. While almost every farmer has a way of his own—some good and
some   bad—the  professional   meat  eurers
have reduced  tho business to a science.
Their   methods   have   been   printed   in   a
little   book   designed   for   butchers   only,
and It is not for sale in the book stores.
By dint of much inquiry and perseverance I have come in possession of a copy.
and propose now to give to your readers
herewith such formulas as I think they
would like to know, believing the information will be acceptable, now that it is
hog killing time.
Salting Pork.—Cover the bottom of the
barrel with an Inch of salt.    Pack down
a layer on  the edge of the pieces,  with
the rind next to the barrel; pack all the
space solid; cover with ah inch of salt,
and thus proceed with the rest; when al!
Is packed, weight it down; make a brine
strong enough by boiling to hold up un
egg; skim off any scum that rises when
boiling. When thoroughly cool pour it
on the meat and cover It fully. As a matter of safety, it is advisable to take all
out the next spring, repack as before, and
reboll the brine, ndding more water and
salt, as rany be needed. Some only turn
the brine off and reboll.
To Corn Beef or Pork Hams—Ono hundred pounds of meat, six gallons of water,
nine pounds of salt, three pounds of
blown sugar, one quart of molasses, six
ounces of saltpetre; boll, skim und let
stand until cold. Dissolve tbc saltpetre
and add to the pickle, stirring well. Puck
the meat and pour the pickle over It.
To Corn Beef—To each gallon of cold
water put one quart of rock salt, one
ounce of saltpetro and four ounces of
brown sugar, it need not be boiled. As
long ns any salt remains undissolved the
meat will be sweet. If nny scum should
rise, scald and skim well, adding more
salt, saltpetre and sugar. As you put
each piece of meat in the tub or barrel,
rub It over with salt. If tho water Is
warm, gash the meat to the bone and put
ln salt.   Weight the meat down.
To Cure Hams and Beef for Drying-
Em* 100 pounds of meat use seven pounds
of coarse salt, five pounds of brown sugar, four ounces of saltpetre, one ounce
of saleratus, dissolve in water enough to
cover the meat—about four gallons. Pack
the meat In a cask without any additional
salt and pour the pickle over It. Let it
stand about six weeks, then take the meat
out and smoke It. Hang tho hams leg
down, always, when smoking. After
smoking, slip each hum into a loose muslin sack to keep files off and hang In a
cool, dry place. Be careful that the hams
are not frozen when the pickle is put on,
or they will not take the salt.
Bacon—This can be made from fresh
pork by rubbing the outside very thoroughly with salt and smoking It Immediately. This method is the quickest way;
but by pickling lirst it can he preserved
much longer. A pickle can be made as i tlgihitly covered, an
for hams and beef for drying, but tlie ha- 1he water slightly t
con should remain in tho pickle only eight
days. The fat Is the hardest part of bacon to keep. In eight days it will absorb
all tho salt It will take up. Owing to the
fat, bncon begins to deteriorate in quality as soon as taken out of the smoko-

It Is Iletter Food Than Most Farmers  Seem  to  Believe.
Cut hay or cut clover is a better food
tha.ii most people think for poultry, says
the Philadelphia Press. It is rich in both
llmo and nitrogen, the two elements most
needed by fowls, and which are largely
lacking in grains. Its nutritive ratio is
1:0.1. The nutritive ratio of wheat is
1:6.5; barley, 1:0.1; corn, 1:8.9, and potatoes, 1:17.3. Thus we see that clover has
nearly as high a nutritive ratio as wheat,
and Is equal to barley, and these are our
two most valuable grain foods, says the
Agricultural Epitomist. Clover has six
and one-half times as much lime as does
wheat, and 13 times as much as barley.
Then hens need bulky food, Hie same
as the horse or cow. Grain alone is too
eoncentra'tcd a food, as will be noticed
when hens run nt large. We have frequently taken out tho crop of turkeys
when dressed, and have often found
them to eontuln us much as half a pound
of grass alone. This has been when
they have been killed toward night, alter
running during the day.
Tho advantages of feeding cut clover
hay are many. It is the easiest procured
•f any green food. Great care should
be exercised in gathering it. Second crop
clover Is by far the best. It is liner—does
not get such a rank growth as lirst crop
—and has moro or less seed. It should
be cut wihcn the first blossoms have begun to die and before it has quite matured. Do not let it lie on the ground as
it is cut and dry too much. Let It dry
in winrows for two or three hours. Turn
it if necessary, and after a lititlo more
drying cock It and let it stand and sweat
a day or two; after this turn the cocks
over—after the dew is off in the morning—nnd In an hour or two cart it to
the barn and put away. This method
in handling will cure It and yet retain
all Its best qualities.
It can be fed alone or In the morning
mash. To feed alone It should be cut in
quarter or half inch lengths and enough
put ln a tight box or barrel; put on l( a
pull or two of boiling water and cover
lightly for an hour or two. The hot
water restores it largely to Its green
state, and fowls will eagerly eat It after
they find out wihat it is good for.
In feeding it ln the mash treat it as
givem above, only add enough mixed feed
to make It a stiff mass, and lot stand,
hour at least. Snlt
before putting It over
the clover. In that case the clover should
be put in with tiho water and let boll for
half an hour (covered) before mixing in
'the feed. Tlie feeding of cut clover will
keep the hens in perfect health and add
many eggs to the egg baskt.

The purpose of this unique sohemo Is

l-'ur years past the people of the south
have been using a great deal of the farm
produce of the northern states, both raw
m.nerials and articles manufactured from
siali products, all of which, of course,
had lo be shlped from the producer in the
north lo the consumer in  lhe south, and

Now, however, an association of gentlemen from all pans of the south have,
through tin- agency of the Seaboard Air
Line loan.I a in.-aits of placing before ho
farmers of that section a gigantic object
lesson, which is nothing more nor less
than a series ol' farms along the line ot
Ibe railroad, showing just what can be
accomplished by intelligent and industrious farming on this plan. As the railway In question runs through a country
try iu which Is a wide diversity of climate as well as soil, here if anywhere in
ibe south con such products as New Eng-
land beans, broom-corn, celery and sugar
beets be raised  to advantage.
The farms will b.. operated by Hie company exclusively, and as greal a variety
of produce as is found practicable will
be grown. Located as they an- all along
the line, il will be an easy mailer for a
traveler to see at a glance just wbal
products produce the best results iii any
locality through which the road runs.
Tho farming will be confined almost entirely lo products not now grown in thai
region, and al the same time an effort
will be made to improve tile live slock
now  raised there.
In order that proper attention may be
given lo these experimental crops and Hie
best results obtained, the company will
organize a department unlike anything
connected with any other railroad in the
country. This department will not onb
have charge of these farms, but will also
give careful attention to the study of the
markets lo which the products should be
shipped In order to secure the best financial results. Hy these methods those interested in the future of the south hope
to demonstrate the possibilities of southern soil and climate, and materially better the condition of the southern farmer.

Among the many changes prop >sed in
the mineral laws is one»shutting out
Americans or foreigners from owning

Tho effect of such legislation would be
felt throughout the ontire province and
would be a serious check on the progress of tho mining interests of this and

It is universally acknowledged that
to the Amorican prospector and minor
is due the credit of the d wolodment of
the famous Trail Creek and sjlocun countries and the opening up of the Kottle
Kiver and boundary Creek districts,
which aro destined to soon bocome even
more famous than their older rivals.
But tho promoters of tho proposed act
argue that the developoment of the
mining interests of British Oolumbia
has reached a stage where it will go
forward even if tho Americans are shut
out us Canadian and English investors
are taking a deeper interest in British
Columbia mines than ever   beforo,

The expense of maintaining our municipal government will be just what we
make it, either great or small. It ia
customary in emill towns for the officials to act for the firat year at low salaries, merely nominal ones, which will
always help in keeping down  expenses.
Therefore to any right minded man
tho advantages to be gained by incorporation are much greater than its disadvantages and we would suggest to
those croakers, that they look into the
matter a little before they pronounce
