TrmiNUi'l Ion In Montana:—Illg Tunnel I'rnjeet In Idaho,
Secretary Woodman of the Spokane
chamber of commerce hns received un interesting letter from Ira E. MeNutt, who
started from Spokane to walk over the
route to Teslin lake. He arrived in Kamloops in 11) days, and writes as follows:
"1 loljt Spokane on February 10, at 11:30 I
a. in., and arrived at Kamloops March (1,j
at 5 p. in.   As near us 1 have been able !
to learn by inquiry nl points along the
way, I have I raveled 303 miles, walking
nil but. 40 miles of the distance.
"I encountered snow on the divide between Spokane and Colville, and again at
•reenwood mountain and on the Clump
McKinney roud, and 14 miles this side of
©amp McKinney Tho rest of the way
to Pentidon.was good walking
"I came up the west, sido of Lake Okanogan over a good trail for 70 miles.
From Vernon to Kamloops tlio roads were
sloppy witli snow and mud The roads
have been wet nnd sloppy more or less
all tho wny. I have had my feet soaking
wet for four or five days at a time so that
I have hud to stop and wring water from
my socks several times a day, but 1 am
feeling nunc thc worse for my trip. In
fact, I am more able to walk than when 1
started.
"The country has been mountainous
nnd well timbered almost all tlio way, but
the wagon roads are good ones, and follow valleys that are well settled.
"There is but lillie chance for grazing
stock on the May from Spokane to Kamloops, but almost every funnel' hns hay to
sell ut from $8 to $15 per ton. I have
paid all llie way from 15 to 50 cents for
meals.
"The distonec from Ashcroft to Vernr.n
is 120 miles by way of Kamloops I understand there is a, shorter trail over the
mountains further south, but it cannot be
traveled for six weeks yet.
"Horses can be had all along the route
fnr from $8 to $25.
"I expect to reach Ashcroft lomorrow
night. 1 havo been walking 17 days. I
am yours on thc trail,
"IRA K. M'NUTT."
The route taken by Mr. MeNutt wns
by way of Marcus, Grand Forks and
fimp McKinney to Pentieton. This is
only one of the routes to Ashcroft overland from Spokane.' The Willard party,
which left a few* days since, will endeavor
to reach Pentieton by way of Wilbur and
Wild Goos Hill's ferry.

considered the giealest mine in Ihe Coeur
d'Alenes, there being but two others

FORTUNE FOR TELEPHONE GIRL.
SADIE HOLMES, of Snn Francisco, has been a telephone girl lu
Sun Francisco for eight weeks,
her ful iter's reverses of fort une having
forced her lo euru her own living. But
n.i\v fortune smiles, nnd she Is known
as Lady Brelliertoii and bus a fortune
of $1,(1(10,000 and an estate In Wales.
"It ls like a fairy story," Lady Bret her-
Ion said, when asked for details. "The

erton, who died two mouths ago, passed

WoiKrut* Girl's Great Chance.
"The average home holds out a far
more comfortable time, a more leisurely
life, a healthier existence, and better
wages, than does the office, store or
factory to an Intelligent girl or woman," writes Edward W. Bok of "The
Working-Girl's Great Chance," In the
Ladles' Home Journal. "Tbe same time
devoted, for evample, lo lhe study of
shorthand or typewriting, if givcu to
lhe study of nursing nr domestic service, would mean twice the income to a
bright, steady girl. Unfortunately,
girls will not see this, and thousands of
them who are to-day struggling I hrougb
an existence In llie outer world, could
have far more comfortable lives and
belter wages in excellent homes, How
lhe average girl can deliberately shut
her eyes lo the opportunity which fairly
glares upon her us it good maid, nurse,
companion or domestic of any sort,
pusses average comprehension, There
bus never been u time when mistresses
were readier or more willing to pay
good wages for good domestic service-
wages compared lo whicli the pittance
paid lu shops or factories sinks Into insignificance. And, on the other hand,
lhe .salaries of women in business, as
recent statistics plainly show, are gradually on the decrease because of the
willingness of hundreds of girls to work
for a mere pittance. Every business
house bus to-day walking lisls of scores
ci- hundreds of applicants, while hundreds of bonies cry mil for intelligent
domestic service."

TilK action 0! the city council r.t the
meeting Woduesdnv, in cutting t-fj all
salaiiys, reminds ono of the man' wbo
locked the barn door after the horse had
been stolen.
TilK unreasonableness ol ccrpe men is
shown by the fact that C. ri. Chut o'r
Colville valley has commenced suit
against his wife for divoice because four
years ago she left tbc ranch and has not
yet teturned.
The fact that Mayor Manly stated on
his recent visit here tbat if Mr. Corbin
*'ot his chatter he expected lo return to
lhe city and remain until after the next
town electron was over, causes one to
su-mise that bo had sonic intention of
re*entcrii u politics.
The Republic 1'ioneer is the name of
a new papei that made its appearance
at Rspubli: last Saturday. It is a six-
column folic, well olitetj and printed by
M mrs. Cleveland aud Drake-, two gentle-
in-'n wbo have hid considerable ne-vs-
'laper expedience.
The action of tbe' Kaslo board of
t ide in passing resolutions requesting
lhe gcvernmint at Ottawa to grant' Mr.
Coibiti a charter, puts a different phase
on ibe feelings cl that community than
'that expressed by £diior King, in V.c-
f-jr.'a last week.
Now "calamity hoiviers ' are crying
that Corbin haj got his charter that
be will'show his gratj'tl tie to Grand
Folks for sending a representative to
0 lawa in his behalf by not coming
within rive nnjes ot the town, i'ou are
w.oug this time.    Guess again.
The eouunis-ion appointed to decide
up ,11 the cause of the blowing up of the
Maine, have decided lhat it was from an
Bxternkl explosion. This conclussion of
the commission means that Uncle Sati;
will bave to li^h't or ','eat ciow," and
every Indication seems to point to the
fact that it will be' the latter.
The board of trule trf Winnipeg
passed resolutions asking the govern
ment not to grant a charter to the Kettle Kiver Valley railway to build into
the Boundary country. Winnipeg, like
Victoria and Vancouver, being a C, P.
R. town, thc action of the board of tiade
will havo but little influence wilh the
government at Ottawa,
Among the amusements this week at
Jiupublic, on the reservation, was a
holdup; a Iree-for-all saloon fight, in
which the bartender got so badly beaten
up that he has to wear a veil; a cutting
affray between two halfbrecds, one of
whom diod from the effects of bij injuries and tbe other is not expected to live.
No wonder they call Republic a "red-
hot" camp.
th; Porto Ueco mine, near Ymir, B. C ,
was among tbe many arrivals in tbe city
ait week. Mr. McMulltn is Con Cos*
g ove's side kicker, apd interested with
bim in a Dumber ol North Fork properties. The object of bis visit here was to
■nake a thorough examination of their
hu.d.pgs in this district, for tbe purpose
f determining wbich ones to open up
this season. As a icsult of this inve-ti-
eyilio.i a force of men have teen put to
work on the May Q i-.en and Lay Over,
Hardy mountain. These claims are near,
or whnt you might say iu Wellington
camp, and the quali.y of ore  found on
hem is said to be similar to that found
.*n tbe Winnipeg and assays all the wny
rrom $12 10 $37. Mr. JlcMuIlei. took
: bout 40 pounds of crc Loin these clui-iis

Personal friends of President Van
Home, residing in Grand forks, are authority for the statement that neither
Grand Forks or Greenwood will be favored with a C. P.' Ii, depot but that tbe

have the C. P. R. pass through it, even
if it don't stop.

ID
iba-gf^^bis ci
you hear the
Corbin got
charter. This
information spread
like wilif-fir*- over
tbo city yesterday
jpgfaiug, notwithstanding Ihit it was
, tbe first day of April
; a steady stream of
visitors called at the
Miner office during the day fo read the
special telegram that had been received
(be evening before from Marcus. The
news was to good to be true. A good
nnny was skeptical and could not be
convinced but that it was one similar
to the one Jeff. Davis teceived some
time ago, and bad come via Cumings
grape vine line. One gentleman, whose
name we will not mention, after be
had examined the dispatch, convinced
himself that there vy.is no "April Fool"
about it, was so overcome with joy that
tears twinkle! down hjs cheeks like
water from a rain's nose with a fresh
coll in his head. Not until thy arrival
of the Spokane Review this morr ingdid
a majority of our people believe that
the report vyas based upon a reliable
foundation.
Ottawa, Marce 31st, 18^8—[ Special
to the Grand Forks Miner]-The
bill granting a charter to the Kettle
Eiver Valley R'y was up for discussion
before the railway committee aid after
one of the hardest fougat battles of th:
present session v/hs passed by a vote of
fifty four to forty-eight.
This is regarded as a complete victory
for Mr. Corbin and it is now considered
an almost assured tact that he will get
the deserved charter. Mr. Bostock, M.
1*. from your constitency and the entire
lioundary delegation did most val
uable service and to them may be largely
attributed tbe success of the bill. Tbe
tact that tbe railway committee is composed of 175 members and that a Urge
number of the committee absent themselves from t!:e session in order to not
goon record, is evidence tbat some
•;ooJ lobbying was dine by Mr. Bjb
lock and his assistants.
Tie following dispatch from the
Spokesman-Review:
Ottawa, March 31.—The app'ication
of the Kettle River Valley Railway Co.,
for a chatter was further discussed in
in tbe railway committee tbis morning
and *»as finally passed by parliament on
a division, by 54 to 48. Some amendments to tbe biil were made, the most
important being one reserving to the
governor general in council power to fix
maximum tolls on ores and to cancel the
charter in case of evasion.
L     *
At last all doubt hai; been removed
and Grand Forks Trill be placed in di
rect rail communication with tbe outside world. This means more to our
people, ant} the Boundary district than
appyars at a casual glapce.
The major part of the country tributary, to this city abounds in mineral
wealth, whose richness is not excelled
on the North American continent. Ail
tbat has been needed fo deyelop this
was transportation facilites, more economical and rapid than wagon and pack
trains.   The railway assures this.
Surplus capital is lying idle in treasure vaults awaiting such opporcunities
f * invest, and the enterprise characteristic of our people, cannot fail to call attention of investors t> tbe advantages
of this district for sale, and profitable
investment.
The construction of this railway will
add many thousands of dollars |o the
taxable property. It will encourage
immigration, and stimulate every avenue
of trade.
The news from Ottawa w.-.s received
with the greatest enthusiasm, l'he
gloomy expression on tbs cpunttinances
of business ant} professional men has
given place lo hopeful anjilcs. M chan*
Jes and laborers have common cause for
oy, for they realise worjc will bf plentiful at good wages. ' Tbe firmer? rei lice
with the miners and business men*, tor
they are brought nearer to good markets where there if always a cjemsnd
tor their products.
The Corbin road will be built as rap
idly as men and money can do the work.
The engineers already have tlje more
d'flicult porble.ns of grades, mlv-id.
The bonds have been placed by a New
York broker, and faefjre tbe end of
Kwv«nl|cr the shriek of the loconwiive
s.   -       tr y,    m. .-1-.1.'•   1     .,.  ',     i.-i.    .;
whistles and rattle of cars will greet the
listening air along the banks of Kettle
river,
The exact line of the road is not yet
made public. It would seem most certain that Mr. Corbin will not bridge the
Columbia a second tim;. If -0, then
the road will leave the Spokane &
Northern at Northport, following the
Columbia river to Flat creek; tlience
along that stream towards tbe Kettle
river; thence along lhat river to some
point neai Cascade City; (hence ts this
city.
Almost without exception o.ir citizens
feel that parliament bas acted -vii-rly in
granting this charter, and that home interests have been amply protected, so
far as esport charges are concerned.
Now, let us put aside selfish motives,
and all pull together tq make Grand
Forks what it is justly entitled to be the
chief railway and smelter metropolis of
British Columbia.
C. P. R. Survey.
Engineer Rice, with a corp of survey-
orp have been surveying the line for thr
proposed C. P. R. through this city, the
last week. This survey consists of driving what are called centre stakes from
which the slashers will wcrk on both
sides. It is understood that as soon as
the centre slakes have all been driven
the slashers will be turned on, who will
b: followed by tjje final act of setting
ibe grade stakes.
' Stabbed at Republic.
Last Wednesday evening Republic,
Wash, was the scene of a most atrocious
stabbing affray.
It jjCems that one John Bassett a half-
breed was in Republic la-it Wednesday
with a nice little roll of money and was
drinking freely all day, until about nine
o'clock in tbc evening when he was go
ing from Republic to the old cninp of
Eureka when between the two camps he
was waylaid by an unknown white man
who dew n knife and commenced cm-
ting and slashing the unfortunate half-
breed. The cuts taking effect on his
breast and abdomen.
It appears tbat after satisfying bis
bmtish propensities in this manner the
stranger left in* victim on the trail
to bleed to death, and went bis way.
Thc body of the wounded half breed
was found ealy last Thursday morning
by some prospectors and he was taken
to Dr. Manly's hospital for treatment.
Tbe wounds are pronounced most severe 2nd recovery is doubtful.
The perpretrator of this fiendish
deed has not yet been identified.
Last Saturday, March 26;b, Miss
Peail Preslar was eight years old. In
honor of which, ber mother invited
some twenty of Pearl's liitle girl friends
to a bjrfhday dinner. After lhe guosts
bad spent an hour or two in playing
childish games, the long looked for banquet, which had becn prepared with a
special view of apeasing the appetie of
children, was announced, and tbe scene
that followed was one long to be remembered by those present. There was a
three-story birthday cake, iced and decorated with candies, dainty sandwiches,
lemonade, apples, oranges, nute, rais'ii-r
•j.*id confectioneries of all kinds, tempt
ingly arranged on plates encircled with
wieaths of flowers. After the appetites
of all bad been fully satisfied the little
ones returned to their games for a short
when all returned home feeling that
pearl's birthday party was the juvinal
socjal event of tbe season. Miss Pearl
was the recjpetcnt ot many presents
from her young {friends, who all wished
ber many returns of the day.
Seriously Injured.
A very bad accident occured last
Monday afternoon to Mr. Thomas Cap.
sey an old resident in this section.
It seems tbat Mr. Capsey was in tbe
act of driving a cow home with a horse
which he was riding bareback with only
a rope baiter on, whpn t-is horse stumbled and fell throwing bim with great
force forward on the bony pitt of the
horse's weathers, causing him to fall to
the ground in gregt pain. He was carried a short distance to his home by
some men who happened to bo near,
and Dr. Smith of this place was sent for
at snee, who says that Mr, Capsey's
case was a most serjous one, and tbat
from the symptoms it was most likely
that the unfortunate man had received
a rupture of lhe bladder. Still there is
a chance that he may recover but his
case is unquestionably a critical one.

i The feoard of Police Commissioners
for *this pity, consisting of Mayor Munly
and Police Magistrate Johnson, md last
Tuesday, when several matters relating
to theeity police system wprediscussed'
Mayor Manly was an arrival in the
city last Tuesday afternoon and shortly
atterwaids a no:ic,p waa posted on thc
door of the city clerk's office, conveying tbe startling information that tnere
would be a special meeting of tbe city
council at i o'clock Wednesday afternoon March 30th.
Promptly at the appointed hour the
meeting was called 10 order by the mayor
with W. K. C. a;**; L. A. Manly and Jeff.
Davis tn their seats. In the absence of
City Clerk Wollaston, Treasurer Addison otliciated as clerk.
A petilion from L. A.,Minly et al asking the council to appropriate fi-,0 to
ward tbe construction of the First street
bridge w.is road by thc ctorl*;-
Aid. Davis said tbat he would like to
know something about how tbe cuntract
lor this bridge bad beon let. It was
common street talk that certain contractors had been discriminated against and
that tbe con:ract had been awarded to
ihe highest and not tbe lowest bidder.
L. A. Manly stated lhat the bid of Fred
Cooper was $|j.a highest, but after tbe
bid> had been opened, it had becn decided to bave the work done by lhe day
and Mr. Cooler had been employed as
foreman of the works.
Aid. Davis wan of the opinion that if
there had been fair-play the bridge could
have been ijujlt fit a considerable less
expense, and therefore moved that the
petition be laid on the table.
Tbe mayor looked at tbe uldcrmen
and the aldermen looked at the mayor
lor sometime and nobody said a word.
Finally the spirit moved aud Aid: L. A.
Manly jncor.ded Mr. Davis' motion,
which on being put lo a vote carried.
A bill from -Solicitor Cayley for $01
for legal services rendered was read by
the clerk, and that gentleman being present made a personal explanation of the
same, which upon the recommendation
ot tbe mayor was referred to ibe finance
committee,
A bill for (Eg for printing from M:-
Carter & Sjn was read and roferred to
tbe finance committee.
Contractor p.ivey being present stated
tbat be had at last got the white elephant hue. The fact tbat the boiler
and the machinery for both water and
light plains bad been unavoidably delayed on tbe way tror^ th; factory to Iljss-
burg, and that every member of the
couneil was fully cognizant of the difficulties that he encountered in getting
the boiler from Hossburg to this city.
This all bad entailed a large expenditure. Owing to this delay he bad been
unabls t-( complete his contract as soon
as expected, therefore his obligations
lor ibe boiier and machinery Wi.re now
past due and mud be met. For (his
reason be was forced to request tbe city
to allow hitn an estimate ol $3.ooo.
Mayor Manly called on Inspector Addison for his report.
Mr. Addison stated owing to the fact
that the machine/)- was ;c**,tlei'r-d and it
was impossible to make anything of an
actuate estitmate, and for tbat reason
had requested Mr. Davey to plead bis
own case b- fore the council. The boiler
and all the machinery for both the plants
was hire,excepting thc d) namo,and that
was reported to be on thu road between
here and liossburg and was expected to
arrive almosi any day. That it would
only require aboul (600 to complete tbe
work, and in lus ju gment he considered
that the city was perfectly safe in allowing tbe estimate,
Mayor Manly said that le had made a
careful examination if the boiler and
machinery since his arrival 111 tbe city
and he waa more Ih.n satisfied that Mr.
Davey bad done the t-quare thing by tbe
city. In lis opinion the city bad becn
very fortunate in having one Urge boiler instead of two small ones. He had
been ii.formed on good authority that
the change would save almcst enough in
luel to pay tbe expenses of a man to run
the plant.
The latter statement of the mayor was
corrobated by Aj-j.L. A. Manly.
Mr. D ivey stated tbe bills this estimate ot £8,000 went to pay, included b■ -
tween $1,500 and $2,000 worth of electric
and water works supplies which he had
ordered so that connections could be made
with anyone who desired to have either
water or light system put in. In the
event of the city wanting to control ihis
bus ness he would turn it over to them
on their purchasing the stock he had on
hand.
Mayor Manly stated tbat as far as he
was personally concerned that be was
well please 1 with tne plant and could
see no valid reason why Mr. Davey
should not be allowed tbe estimate asked
for.
Mr. Davey called attention to the fact
tbat his contiact with the city called for
a dynamo with a capacity of only 1,000
incondesant lights, and that the one that
he was pu'ling in had a capacity of 1,5-ro
lights, therefore the city was getting
one-hall more lighting power than the
contract called lor.
The mayor asked Aid Davis what he
thought about the matter and be replied that be guessed tsat the best thing
they could do was to allow the estimate
Acting Clerk Addison suggested tbat
the' proper thing lor someone to do
would be to make a motion that the esti*
ma'e be allowed
L. A. Manly taking the que from the
; suggestion of lhe cleik anl made the
I necessary motion. There was a paufe
for a few seconds and finally the mayor

broke the silence by inquiring il theic !

A'd. Davis looked at Cirs. Manly and
wanted to know '"what was   the  matter I
with him tbat he dr.! not second '.he mo- j
lion?"   Cars,  replied "that he wanted j
to give someone else a show."
Aid Davis then seconded the motion,!
which on being put w^s rained.
Mr. Addison stated that he had been |
requested by tbe mayor to make an e*ti
mate of tbe amount necpssary to carry
the ci'y ovyr until snch times as the city
taxes could be collected, and in accordance with tbis request he had prepared
the following statement:

Salaries and current expenses     fi'Je uu
The last named item was the tne.'rn.
r.f the mayor bringing up tbc question of
doing away wllh lhe salary iisi. He was
strictly opposed to payinj; for something
that was not to do. The police record
showed tbat Ihere was no necessity foi •;
eity maisbal. He was of the opinion
that it would be a wise move on the part
of theeity to cut all salaries iff excepting that of ihe city treasurer, assessor
and water wo-ks inspector. The trouble in the past had been th .t the council
had meet to often, From now on it wain be different. Hereafter, whenever he
considered it necessary 10 hold a meeting pf lhe council, be would just run
over from Ro.-.sland nnd call the boys together and transact what business there
was to be done. This way there would
ne very little Vi'ork f"r a clerk ;o d , aud
if the pre ent Incombernt dirl nut care
lo perform the duties ol tho 1 tfioe wi h
out a salary, lhat ihere wa* no doubt bin
that Mr. Addition will kir.dly consent to
■erve.
Mr. AJdison srattd that he was a pcr-
s .m who was not so particular a'-roui the
salaiy as ho was about iheolfite and was
willing to peiform tl e duties 1 f clerk
until such times as the city was able 10
pay a salary.
The idea of cut'ing off all salaries
struck Aid. Davis" in a soft spot and he
fell in with tho mayors idea very readily. Both Al. an.l Cars. Manly were in
favor of retrenchment, provided that ftlr.
Ac'tli.-im would consent to officiate a>
city clerk prnyi'lcd Mr. Wollaston did
cue'to'act without compensation.
Mr. Addison thought that under the
present condition of affairs, thnt the pio-
per thing for tbe riiy to do would be to
combine the various offices, and give
someone sufficient sal.iry, so be could
devote bis enure lime lo the service ol
the city.
This seemed to meet tbe approval o-
tbc council, and by common consent it
was underdo d lhat Mr. Addison was tc
look alter the enure interests of the city
until a new council was chosen,
It was then moved by W. K, C. Manly
and seconded by Alderman Davis, that
the' salary of the city e'erk and marshal
bc temporarily suspended.   Carried,
It w,is decided ih.it'in the case of the
clerk the suspension date fr- IP tbe time
cf the last meeting, and in the case ol
the marshal lhat he be entitled pay to the
end of the present month which expired
April 10.
W. K C. Manly s'atod that it would
be necessary for the council Io pa-s a
re olution authorizing the clerk to order,
under the seal of the city, the hose e irl,
500 fee' of hose and iwo 2-inch nozzles.
A motion lo that effect was then carried.
The question of the pity making a
temporary loan for thc purposes of tueer-
ing current expenses was ne#t brought
up for consideration. Mayor Manly
staled that as Treasurer Addison wan
going to Bossburg, it might be wed for
the council to instruct htm to run up to
Rossland and negotiate the loan required by the cily.
Aid. Davis could not see what policy
there was in curtailing expenses by cut-
ling off salaries and then giving it to
seme one to go Rossland a-d havr- a
good time on, and expressed tbe
opinion -hit the loan" cruld be
done by correspondence, thereby'saving
the expense of the trip.
The mayor said that the only expense
lhat would be attached to tbe trip would
be the cost of going from Bossburg to
Rossland and return, therefore could not
be very much.
.On inocronolW K C.Manly.neconded
by L A Manly. Treasurer Add.son was
instructed to journey to Rossland and
negotiate thiough the Bank <f Montreal
a thr> e month's loan of $5 5C0.
J. K Johnson sratcd that lhe provincial government h^.l a Contract ready
(or ,-he city to sign, fpr Ihe" use of f c
jail, and su-ygested thu the clerk bc instructed to see that the rua tc. was a -
tendid to at once. The clerk was so
ordered.
The question ol app- inting someone
to fill the vacancy cau .ed by the resign 1
tion cf Aid. Johnson was ntfxi fully dis
cussed. While there mis somy d- ubi a
:o whether or not the com c 1 had the
autho ity to appoint a person to fill tie
viicin :y, in view of tbe fact thai it might
be uece-saiy to hold a nicifing 01 tbe
council during the mayors absence, it
was decid. d to rake a loiig chance and
appo).:t  a i.e -ne.
O.i motion of Aid. D 1 vis, seconded by
W, K. C. Manly, A. C. Fras rcr was ar
pointed to fill the vac ..ney.
There being no further busincs on
the calander on motion of Air*. Davis
the meeting adj turned without dj'.e,

While Mr. A. E, Shaw, P. L. S. was
inthe act of surveying tie Surprise
claim in Seattle camp it was fo.ind that
the line of the Surprise passed over a
large portion of the Sailor Iky cla:mi
and when lhe survey was completed it
was found tbat tbc part ofthe Surprise
where the work had been done was surveyed out of tbat claim, being within
the side lines of the Sailor Boy. It is
also claimed that in aro her sur\iy
made by Mr. Shaw lhat the Humming

MY CASTLE IN   SPAIN.
Mt cattle in Spain stands fair and high
Beside n sunlit bay;
Above it beuds tbe azure sky,
The soft winds round it play.
No toiler from his rest was frtlrred.
When rose its splendid walls,
i No sound of hammer e'er was heard
1     Along its stately balls.
I My castle iu Spain is built of dreams,
Of fancies fair and  free;
Of hope that ever brightly beams,
Of joys 1 yet may see.
And when my heart is worn with care,
With strife and toil and pain;
I leave tbem and go swiftly where
My castle stands in Spain.
There dwell the days of my lost youth,
With cm-h high hope fulfilled;
There -dimes Cull-orbed each sacred truth,
That through my life has thrilled;
There wait for me my loved aud lost,
With al! life's joys attained,
Life's  Htibieon in safety erussed,
And all life's empire gained.
The little cares that round uiy soul
Like liule snakes have curled
Uncoil aud loose each poisoned fold,
Outside lhat fairer world;
Old sorrows dead, old pains forgot,
(lid griefs come uot again,
Tlie heat burns not, the cold chills not,
Where aiy ensile stands in Spain.
Oh. Ship nf Thought, that leaves behind
The lightning nnd the light,
Come forth from rivers of the mind.
Por 1  would ride to-night; .-
And bear tne swiftly, on and on,
Across your liastern main,
To where in beauty, proud and lone,""
My ensile stands in Spain.
Dear lady, with the viulet eyes,   ■
Afar across the tide, ~*
Fur thee my ensile walls arise,
Kor thee its gates swing wide;
And nil the bliss of love we'll share,

There are many good  anecdotes aibomt

no small amount of'humor, says the Toronto Chronicle.     The   following,    which
comes from Mr. K-hlers,  the traveler, is
wnmrter Than most.     The  emperor and
Bhlera -were college oh urns  from   Bonn,
eind Uhe emperor never forgot his old col-**!
lege student     al Bonn on special occasions ihe different corps used tu drink  to
one arn»!.1.er,  and   the following set  form j
was always used:     The president, of  Lhe
PaJatlo corps raises his glass, saying: "l ,
have the great honor and    pleasure  tn j
empty my glass in drinking to bhe corps
of Bomssia."     The president of fhn hitter corps then replies: "The corps thanks
and drinks."
On the blrtih of one of the sons of th •
-emperor Killers telegraphed him: "1 have
the great honor and pleasure to empty
my gHasa in drinking to tlie youngest
HO-henzoilern." The emperor promptly ;
wired back: "Tbe youngest Hahenzol-

wllliln miles of where we nre."
"Never niiinl; here is plenty of the
purple variety, nud it makes the most
comfortable lounge in the world."
"It looks awfully spidery," she remarked, making a little face. Nevertheless, she seated herself on the tuft
I recommended ns the most luxurious,
nmi I stretched myself In/.lly beside
ber.
**(>, no; not that wny! What If any
one saw us'.-"
.She removed my arm from where It
was, nud I had to put li back there
again.
"There isn't a soul about," 1 said,
soothingly.
"How do you know? There! I'm
sure there is some one down at the
burn.   Now, Is It not?"
"That Is n sheep, Nora. Kilt I promise io lulu away my arm if a human
belug nppronehes within two miles.
Will Ihnl do?"
"O, well, please be cni-efiil, Will."
Norn became absorbed in thought,
"One penny," 1 hazard.-rl.
. She blushed,
"Tell me," I begged.
"l don'', like in. It's something I
don't quite understand."
"I .1 explain It."
"Well"—hesitating—"I've been wondering, nt least I've been trying lo
thluk, why you like lo put your linn
around my waist, Will."
"Let ine see," said I, reflectively,
"why do 1 like lo put my arm aroiiud
your waist ?"
"yes."
"Because I like," I answered, readily.
"Hill what makes you like?"
"It's nice nnd comfy."
"1)0 be serious. 1 want to kuow,
really."
"But, Norn, you know as well as I
do. It's the snme reason that makes
you like ine to do It."
"I don'l like you to do It."
"Then why do you allow It?"
"1 only allow It to please you."
"0!"
"And unless you can give me a good
reason," she continued, "I shan't allow
U any mole."   1 felt a little cross.
"We've been engaged for live weeks
and three days," 1 said. "Don't you
think it Is rather late for sueh questions?"
"It's never loo late to mend," she returned, cruelly, "and I've just been
thinking these last few days, aud—"
"You lirst effort In thut way?" I Inquired, reveugefully, but she took no
notice nn.l proceeded calmly:
"And I've been wondering If you ever
put your anu round another girl's
waist.    Have you?"
Quito unexpected was this terribly dl-
recl question. I hnd to consider a nio-
ni.-iit.
"Onee," I began gravely, "I met a
girl."   I paused.
"Well?" s:ild Norn, Impatiently.
"A girl wiih whom I became so
friendly thnt one evening—"
1 paused again.
"Do go on!" -
"1 met her nt n dnnee "
"(I. Will, how could you?"
"I met her ni a dance and danced a
quadrille with her."
"Ves"—eagerly—"and afterwards?"
"There was no afterwards, dear,"
snld I.
I anticipated Nora would he pleased.
She was not.
"Do you mean lo say you dldn'l go
and sit on the stairs or In thc conservatory or"—vaguely—"any where?"
"No," said I.   "Did you?"
Nora was ruffled,
"Will, you are trilling with me."
"I couldn't atl'ord to, dear."
"1 see you won't be serious, and yet I
have something very serious to say to
you. Something that Maud English
told ine Inst night."
"I heard her," 1 sa'd.
Nora slur led.
"0, you eouldu't he.tr what she said."
"Nol quite; but yoU must remember
that the walls of Hick* country cottages
are mostly trade of vaper. You aud
she were talking till nearly 2 o'clock
this morning I suppose she was treating you to a discourse on Davidson."
"Perhaps; but Maud told me also
something tboul you."
"Awfull* good of ber to mention It!"
I leiiini kerj. with affected cheerfulness,
but 1 felt desperately uncomfortable.
It was too bsd of Maud, especially
wheu she had just got engaged to
Davidson.
"What do you think It was?" asked
Nora.
"I haven't a notion," I replied.
"0, guess," but there was no smile on
Nora's face.
"Well, maybe she was telling how
fiiriunate you were lu having such au
adorable Individual as I belonging to
you."
I laughed feebly.
"Not altogether," said Nora. "She
lold me"—and very distinctly the words
came—"that two summers ago, In this
very place, you used to put your arm
round her waist, and once you kissed
lier! That's all I've got to say, Mr.
Harris."
I had not heard my surname for quite
a long time, but 1 liked it none tlie belter for lhat.
Nora moved from me, and my arm
slipped l'i*.un ber waist. It was strange
it had remained there through our conversation. 1 became Intensely Interested in a fat spider crawling up my
sleeve, and a great bee sat ou a spray
of heather hard by, wooing lhe sweetness out of the bloom. A lamb on the
hills behind bleated pitifully, and the
noise of water came monotonously from
the rocky cleft below us. The suu
counted for but liule now. There was
a long, long silence between us, but I
fell that Nora was looking at lue, and
at last she spoke.
"Will."
"Ves."   I was a lillie surprised.
"Why don't you look at me and say
It Isn't true?"
I looked at her but a breath. "It's
true enough," 1 said, briefly,
Silence again. Then: "You're not
frightened of me, are you?" she asked,
sofily; and I felt her hand touch my
hair.
"0, Will you can't Imagine how glad
I am!"
"What?" I cried, forgetting my manners.
"(Had I found you out. Would you
mind putting your arms back where it
was not long ago?"
1 put my arm ihere, but I was sorely
puzzled.
"You see, Will," she began, with a
quaint look of trouble lu her eyes, "I
had a confession lo make to you, and—
and it makes It easier uow."
1 drew her closer. Thank God women are nol angels.
"Don't bother to tell It, dear," I whispered.
"0, but I must It'll you. When
Maiulle told me aliout you and herself
I had to tell ber about Mr. Davidson
and myself, for we had just been as
bud. Ami, Will, sometimes I felt so
dreadful at not having told you before.
Often I tried to speak nnd couldn't.
And lhan I wns so glad when Maudle
mentioned you—she didn't like my story
aliout Mr. Davidson—for I felt that I
could at Inst tell you."
"Were you quite sure I would forgive you, dear?" 1 asked, looking down
lulo her eyes.
"Sinners must forgive sluuers," she
whispered very gravely. "Ah, Will,
you don't care any the less, do you?
And you won't think any more of what
I said?"
"I did not think I cared so much, my
Nora, till 1 felt that 1 had lost you just
now. And lhe past Is nothing when I
know that you Hre mine lo-day."
"Aud forever!" she sighed.
"Forever and ever!" 1 added, klssim

A Jewish peddler, returning home
from his weeks' travels to rejoin his
family ou Ihe Sabbath, as was his
wont, was met by a highwayman who
demanded his money.   Reluctantly he
parted Willi It, counting It Into lhe
hand or lhe robber In the hope that the
delay thus caused might bring some
wayfarer. When he wns finished he
said to Ihe robber, us a sudden thought
came to him: "Meester, won't you
please shoot me a little hole lu my
sleeve so I eau show my vife that
1 met a real, genuine highwayman?"
Aconi moduli ugly he shot a hole lu his
right sleeve, his coat tall and finally
took oft his bat and said: "Now, meester, let ine show my family how near
1 had a hole In my head nud deu (ley
won't be sorry dat I lost uiy money."
'The robber, who had been enjoying the
inn. told hlm that he couldn't because
he had uo more shols. "Now," said
the Jew, seizing Iho villain, whose fire
he had so eleverely drawn, "glf me
back my money."
Preserved from Death, tbe Man Gave
Up His Life to Kellclous Work.
A man, called the "Sailors' Friend,"
was rigged out In his best suit of
clothes on a Sunday morning not long
ago. He carried under his arm a large
roll of magazines aud papers, aud went
from desolate rooms in cheerless boarding houses, all along the city streets
and alleys where the sailors lived.
"Take this, Jack, my boy," he said to
a half-drunken Swede, who was lounging on a broken sofa. There was tender solicitude iu his voice ns lie touched
the stranger on the shoulder and said,
"Read It, read it, Jack! It will trim
your sails tor a better port than this."
Jack did not accept the gift ungratefully. He looked half-pleased and half-
ashamed,
"Hev ye any of 'em with pictures iu
'em?" asked a grizzled old sailor, who
looked as ir lie might add, "If ye don'l
give me one, I'll take it, whether yoll
Kill or no."
"Thank ye, ihank ye!" he added hastily, as au Illustrated magazine was
offered to hlm. Then he burst out suddenly, addressing the Sailors' Friend,
"Ye're a good man!"
"1 hope 1 am," wns the frank reply.
"If everybody wuz trylu' to do ez
much good ez you are, this world would
be a better world."
"1 hope so, uiy friend," wns tbe quick
answer. "When 1 go io heaven, 1 waut
to sail In under a full cloud or canvas,
and not with a jury-rig."
It was very apparent Hint the sailors
—Danes, Swedes, English and Portuguese—appreciated this quick and apt
reply.
Over thirty years ago a man shipped
lu Portsmouth on the brig Rlcklugham,
bound tor Cuba. There was a strong
breeze rrom wesl-norlhwesl, nnd It was
very cold. That night sail had to be
shortened. The next morning the gale
had Increased to a hurricane, the vessel
scudding before It like a race-Horse.
This lasted for four days.
On the lirth morning, at 4 o'clock, a
sea broke over lhe ship rrom stem to
8tern, stove ln all the boats, and swept
everything movable from the deck.
The men were ordered to the pumps,
among tmeni the recently shipped seaman. . The brig soon began to leak
badly, lu an hour It became evident
she could not last.long If the gale continued. Notwithstanding tlie terror of
the sea and lhe thunder of the storm,
blasphemy from some ot lhe men was
heard as they bent to the clanking
pumps.
Darkness came, and In lhe horror nnd
despair ot the night and the storm one
man dropped, In sheer exhaustion, to
his knees. It was an unusual altitude,
and perhaps by Iorce of some old association, he began to pray. 'There, clinging to the rail, dashed at by lhe ocean,
he resolved, with a sincerity like that
of the robber on the cross, that If his
life were saved, he would give it wholly
to the service of Cod.
The vessel rode out the storm. "And
don't you think," said Ihe sailor who
has told llie slory, "ibat the captain
noticed a difference in my attention to
my duties after that, and spoke of U?"
A few months later the rescued sailor
began lhe work for which he is known
on the Maine const as the Sailor's'
Friend. -Youth's Companion,
Wllhelm Helped the Artist.
A year or so ago Prof, Meuzol, one
of the most famous of German artists,
applied lo the proper government official for the privilege of lighting up
Hie music room at Sans Soucl, the
summer palace ot Frederick the Great,
lu order to make sketches for a historical picture he desired to paint. The
official refused permission. He ix-
plalned that such a liberty could not
be allowed; thai It never had been and
uever could be. A few weeks later the
emperor accidentally learned of the incident, and at once sent an alil-ile-
cnliip to Inform I'rof. Meuzel Hint Instructions hai beeu glveu to the custodian of Sans .Soucl to light np lhe
music room tor his benefit on a certain
evening, and that If he could make It
convenient to bring his sketching materials at that time he would have lhe
liberty to make as many studies as he
liked. The artist expressed his thanks
and accepted the Invitation.
When he drove up to lhe portico of
Sans Soucl on the evening named he
was met by a gentleman wearing the
costume of the favorite ald-de-camp of
Frederick the Great, who escorted hlm
Into the palace, where, to his amazement, he found a parly ol twenty or
thirty ladles nud gentlemen dressed In
the costume of the golden age of Germany, when Sans Soucl was the center
of social gayety and the artistic and
literary life of Europe. He was presented to them one after another iu
the names of the historical characters
each represented, and was then Informed by the ald-de-camp, whom by
that time be had recognized as the
emperor himself, that they would sit
as ids models, In order that his sketches might tie accurate and complete. At
the close of the evening a supper was
served In the dining-room of Frederick
the Great lu a manner that was not
only picturesque but absolutely accurate. Hefore supper, however at the
orders of the emperor, the ladles and
gentlemen posed lu the bull room to
represent a party or Frederick the
Great's gnosis dancing a minuet. The
artist made elaborate sketches, which
are being worked Into a historical picture lhat will have great value.—Berlin

Mount Tantalus Just outside of Honolulu, ean be made to sing any song
or run any score ln the whole musical
repertory.
The natives attribute to It all thc
ghosts of the departed warriors said
to inhabit lhe fastnesses round about,
but science has found the real explanation.
Six miles out of Honolulu the precipitous cliffs of Mount Pall rise 2,000
feet above the sea. About 200 feet up
Is a ledge which gives a clenr drop of
more than 1,000 feet. From this conies
the name Pall, or precipice. Here In
ancient Hawaiian history, the great
Ugh I Ing chief, Kiiniehuinehn I., penned
In the vanquished forces of his arch
enemies, Kiiiinlpule and Knliiii.i, nfter
forcing them from field to Held aud
crag to crag lu n terrible mountnin
tight, l-iluiidliig upon this fatal crag,
the remnants of the defeated bands,
lludlug thut no iiunrter would be glveu,
B.nd seeing uo means of escape, leaped
over the precipice. They were dashed
to pieces on the rocks anil debris below. Hundreds lay lu Unit terrible
heap of denili.
To (he east of Pall Is Ibe mountain
called Tantalus. It Is at night timo
only when the plaintive nud strange
sounds are beard which full upon Ihe
startled senses like "lamentations In
the wind," "sirange screams of
death."
At times tbey are loud aud boisterous, liko midnight revels, nnd nguln
they softeu Inlo u complete wall.
These voices which uionu nud
scream and sob about In lhe night
winds are believed to be the spirits of
the warriors whose mangled bodies
lay at. die foot of Pull after that dreadful leap, anil whose manes are still un-
appeased.
Still these sounds so reverently listened to by lhe Oahll natives enn be
caused by uollilng more than the
ocenu breakers beating on llie windward shore and the plninllve cadence
of the calmer surf below, alternating
wllh Ihe angry nnd wilder scolding of
the storm above, echoing aiming the
dales and crngs of the lofty mountain.
Now, If two persons whose voices
chord should slug from one of the
heights, It will be found thut lhe
mountain will catch up the song and
take It from cliff to cliff, currying it on*
Into the distance In oue direction, and
bringing It back In another, unlll a
perfect round ls obtained.
Then If the two singers suddenly
cense tbeir song tbe mountains will go
on singing it for qulle n long time.
This spot abounds In curiosities. Not

high which girdle It. The I Ide rises and

ocean miles away. Though there Is uo
perceptible tunnel or other connection
with the ocean these tidal conditions
Indicate n subterranean channel underneath the mountains to the sea. Great

The English huve odd Ideas concerning certain American articles of food.
Oue day a lady at a restaurant lu London espied certain browu, oily-looking
cukes. She pointed them out with a
curiosity large enough to embrace anything new.
"What are those?" she asked.
"Those madam," wus the answer,

made In England, nor on Ihe continent.

Channel Islanders who went early to

Dutch vrows of New York made famous ones."
