quite uncalled for. Our reporter
was not informed that the idea of
having tableaux originated with Mrs.
H. A. Brown or that she personally
superintended their representation.
Nothing would have given us greater
pleasure than to have accorded that
lady hi-r fair share of praise. The
programme wus printed exactly as
Mr. Patou sent it iu,
At a largely attended meeting at
Kamloops last week, tho question of
working the coal veins about two
miles south of that town was dis*
cussed, uud it was decided to commence operations for opening up the
deposits by boring. A committee
was appointed for that purpose, also
to interview Mr. Marpole to ascertain what arrangements oould be
made for the use of the C. P. R.
diamond drill. Should tbe coal be
found in paying quantities, it will be
of vast importance to all the towns
in the mountains.
The following letter from tbe Provincial Secretary has been reoeived
by the committee appointed ut the
publio meeting held in the Courthouse two weeks ago:���"Gentlemen,
I have to acknowledge the receipt of
your petition praying that Mr. J.
Kirkup, the present mining recorder
at Revelstoke, may be appointed
Government Agent, I am pleased to
be able to inform you that the matter
was oonsidered by the Executive
some time ago, and was practically
decided upon.���Yours, etc.,
"John Robson."
Dnring one night last week sneak
thieves visited the premises of Mr.
H, Hay, at the station, and oarried
off a quantity of clothes which had
been left on the line to dry. The
articles were mostly new, and canuot
be replaced for less than $12 or $14.
Thinking they were quite safe, Mrs.
Hay did not take them in at night,
bnt in the morning everything was
gone, not even a pocket-handkerchief
or a sock beiug left. There were
three men peddling soldering lead
in town the day before, and no
one noticed them leaving. It is
presumed that they left in the night,
and also that the olothes went with
them.
The survey of the new line from
Revelstoke to the Arrow Lake is
being pushed with vigor. Three
different routes have been marked
out from the station to the mouth of
the Illecillewaet, uud which oue will
be adopted has uot yet been decided.
After crossing the Illecillewaet, the
liue will follow the windings of the
Columbia as close as practicable, as
the grading will be easy, and also ou
account of making the road a favorite
one for tourists and lovers of picturesque scenery. The river is being
utilised by the present survey party.
A large raft has been constructed, ou
which the camp fixtures have been
plaoed, and this will be Heated down
river as the party proceeds, so that
they will never have far to go for
meals and little in the way of outfit
to oarry. Tbe survey is proceeding
rapidly under this plan, which will no
doubt be adopted to a large extent
by the contractors when the work of
construction commences.

A Useful Invention.
Messrs. Raymond Allen and Hugh
Ross, of Revelstoke, have invented
aud taken out a patent for a machine
designed to facilitate the screwing
on of nuts used on the bolts joining
railway plates, or wherever a number
of bolts ure in such proximity as to
be within reaoh of the maohine. The
invention will be Useful to tracklayers, as one man with the machine
can do the work of four with the old
style moukey wrench, The device
cousists of a light metal framework,
with vertical standards thut serve as
journal bearings for a largo cogwheel which engages with two smull
cogwheels joiiruullud within lugs on
the base portion of the frame. These
two cogwheels iu turn each engage
with u pair of cogwheels which revolve mandrels, juiiruailed transversely withiu thu bu -ai, eaoh inuu-
drul having au enlarged heud, which
is recessed to receive the bolt nut,
the revolving inaudrtls being so
plaoed as to coincide with the bolts
thut fasten, the joints. It will be
understood, therefore, that when the
lurge cogwheel is turned by a oruuk
or pull strap Ihe wrench mandrels
will turn very rupidly aud run the
nuts on with great speed, The
device bus u convenient gripping
clamp to hold the parts firmly whilo
iu operation.
The Truth of the Bible,
Sir,���In yonr issue of April 2nd
there appeared an article on the progress of the Bible, which for truth,
error, mixed eloquence, and agnosticism, is unsurpassed by anything I
ever saw. The writer says, "how
it was originally devised no one
knows." Now it is cleur it was
either devised by man or God. But
to ask anyone at all acquainted with
its teaching to believe that it was
devised by man, aud not by God, ia
to ask ono to strain out the gnat
and swallow the camel, for the very
oeutral idea of the Bible���the incarnation of God���is au idea which the
world's philosophy never dreamt of,
It must therefore have been devised
by God for the Balvation of humanity,
" Commentators cannot authenticate beyond a cavil a page of its
contents," A writer who can make
such an erroneous assertion as that
is either utterly unacquainted with
the literature of the Bible or wilfully shuts his eyes to historical
facts. It is well known that every
book of the Bible is better authenticated than any other ancient book.
Again,"its age is wholly unknown."
Certainly, we have not the day of the
month on which it was written.
Rut we have the day, month aud
year on which many of the incidents
narrated by eye-wituesses ocoured.
These incidents are proved beyond
the shadow of a doubt by discoveries
in the pyramids of Egypt and the
tombs of Palestine, aa well as by tbe
earliest historical writers, such aa
Herodotus, who received from Maue-
tho, priest of Sebennytus, the publio
records whioh formed the basis of
his Egyptian history.
If time and space wonld permit,
your paper oould easily- be filled
with quotations from ancient inscriptions and literature proving the
truth of Bible history beyond dispute. Its age, then, cannot be older
than thc facts recorded nor younger
than the lives of the eye-witnesses
who recorded them,
"Full of uppareut contradictions."
Now tbis is utterly untrue, for, as
the writer admits, oo book has stood
the critical tesf of all the learning of
the world like tbe Bible has, and yet
no real contradiction has been proved.
Neither has auy book suffered Irom
ignorant superstition and infidelity
like it has, and still it shines on,
giving life and light to millions.
It is true that many thiugs in the
Bible cannot adequately be understood by man in tbe present state,
owing to tbeir magnificent excellence
and grandeur. But neither is the
man born who thoroughly understood it all, Yet if we apply ourselves to wisdom we shall know beyond a doubt that we are on the
right path to perfect knowledge.
Consequently suoh rash and unlearned assertions as above quoted
are calculated to greatly injure the
mind of those not well acquainted
with Bible truth and literature.���
Yours truly,
THOMAS LEWIS.
Revelstoke Station, April 12th.
The "Myrtle Navy" ping oorreotly
represents the whole plan upon
which its manufacture is conducted.
There is not a fractional part of a
cent expended upon it for mere
appearance. It is neither wrapped
in tin foil nor worked into fancy
shapes, nor put into fancy cases, nor
subject to any kind of expense mere,
ly to please the eye or captivate the
fancy, The manufacturers rightly
believed that tobacco was not purchased for on.ument.but for smoking,
and then-lore ull extraneous expense
was avoided and added to the quality
of tbe tobacco. The public have
testified io iu case that they prefer
paying tbeir money for a high quality of article than for ornament out
of place.

Natural Appetites-
It is reasonable lo infer that tlie wild
beasts have natural appetites, controlled by
the orders given by their instincts, such as
were given them hy their creator, not influenced by false ideas or by depraved,
abnormal impulses. They are supposed to
die only by acoident or old age, never having the diseases incident to human beings,
unless these are eontraced by some form of
abuses connected with human society, On
the contrary, it is supposable that there
are few, if any, in so called civilized society,
who really have normal appetites, such as
Adam and Eve were blessed with, till they
fell from their high position,
It is more than probable that water is as
certainly the natural drink of man as of the
beasts, and that a higher degree of health
would be obtained hy its own use. This
may reasonably he inferred from the fact
that the human body is so largely composed
of water, not apraclicle of tea, coffee, opium
or alcohol being found naturally in its structure, Rut alcohol, that enemy of good
society, thai source of world of misery, that
bold deceiver, misleading millions on millions of human beings, making them inhuman, that cheat, stealing away immense
fortunes and the happiness of vast numbers, so corrupts the natural appetite as to
introduce many, many foea of the human
structure, doing more harm than war, enslaving more mortals than any of the brutal
oppressors of thc world. This vile oppressor brings lo his aid, as a natural ally,
tobacco, lining far more harm, if possible
-ii far as the health of tho present generation is concerned, and transmitting still
more disease to succeeding generations, The
twocPjt this nation alone, yearly, "bout
SI,If','!',(100,000, or about what would be no-
ce.-. 3ary to cancel our notional debt? What
f..o we receive in return tor such a vast expenditure of the treasures earned by the
tailoring classes mainly? Not anything of
real value ! Instead, we have poverty, disgrace, crime, domestic misery, loss of health
loss of sell-respect, ignorance, since drunkenness tends to close onr churches ami
school houses giving us nothing in return.
With men's superior reasoning powers, it
would be reasonable to infer that it is possible for him to have normal appetites at
least equal to those of the supposed lower
orders of creation, in which case his health
should be equal to that of tho3C brutes.
Under these circumstances, plain and simple food would be preferred, though it might
not be necessary to adopt a diet as narrow
in range as that oi brutes, mostot them living on some two or three distinct classes of
foods, like the elephant, etc., representing
the most robust of animals, with wonderful endurance, In the natural condition
of man, as he came from the hands of the
creator, it is probable that '.lie appetite
was a perfect guide, deciding just when food
was needed, how much, what kiud, the
amount depending on the per cent of nutriment contained, never admitting of a mistake which is more or less true of the lower
orders oi creation, among which no drunkards no dyspeptics are found. Under such '
circumstances, it is manifest that there, was
a perfect control of the health, while wc
may reasonably infer that we now���in our
fallen state���have as much control as we
have in other affairs of busy life. What
a paradise wc might have and should have,
if all of the Cod-given laws of our mysterious being were strictly obeyed, the whisky
and tobacco habits destroyed, wars at an

STORIEb OF THE DIAMOND MINES.
A Lucky Zulu Wbc Got $;,>,000 lor Itestor-
I na; a Lost I'cm.
Mr. (ieo. D, Longstreet, an English mining engineer, says of the diamond fields of
[ South Africa :���"The control of thedia*
. mond mines hy the Rothschilds is entirely
due to the overcapitalization of the original
companies. .Some of them were capatilized
as high as i?2,"i,000,000. There are now limiting the production of gems to the demand.
Diamonds will never go down in price, and
the days of romance in South Africa diamond mining are past forever, In early
days the mines were divided into little al- j
lotments of thirty feet square, and each of
these was sold to a corporation for $500,000 I
���a neat sum for a little land scarcely large
enough to put a shanty on. I have been
working for one company and in one mine
as many as 10,000 naked Zulus, whose work
oddly enough, was carried on by electric
light within a year after it was invented. In
those days our chief difficulty was to prevent
the thefts of the workmen. We had au
overseer for every live men, and yet the
beggars managed to steal large numbers of
diamonds. These Zulus are born thieves.
All the tales of Kidder Haggard, whom I
knew in South Africa, I have heard often
from tho lips of Zulus.
" The mines are four in number, tho Kim-
berlcy mine proper being but one of them.
It is 700 feet deep, and 10,000 men at work
in it look like mere pigmies. It was originally all one hill formed by some gigantic ,
volcanic action from below. Long before '
the chimney was dug a few diamonds were
washed from this hill into the streams
where they wero discovered. At Kimberley
the dianimids were embedded in a strange,
hard mud, which had to be blasted with
dynamite before it could be brought up. It
had time to remain a year before the precious stones could be secured. We could not
use crushing machines, for they would crush
the diamonds.
" The most beautiful diamond by far
that I have ever seen was the one found at
Kimberley hy a little American named Porter Rhodes, I paid ,C5 just to look at it.
The sight was a liberal eduction for a diamond expert. Ho afterward sold it to the
Countess of Dudley for $500,000. It was
lost once before il ieft Africa, and Rhodes
presented the Zulu who returned it with a
reward of $75,000.

Paris dailies announce that Queen Natalie
is about to go to London incognito to find a

Dr. Liddell found the task of being the responsible guardian of the future king by no
means an easy one. He, however managed
things so cleverly that whereas he was at
every moment being compelled to close his
eyes to shortcomings of the Prince, no one
suspected that there was any special indulgence accorded on account of the rank of
the royal graduate. On one occasion the
youth gave an extraordinary rendering to
one of the phrases in Sophocles. " Where
did yon get that from ?" asked the Dean.
"Oh, Liddell and Scott" was the answer.

The English Bishop of Zululand, inasmuch as the British have taken from the
Zulus the regulating influence of their own
government, makes the following earnest
appeal to extend the influence of his Church;
" I know that many missions both at home
and abroad, have special claim upon English
people, but I doubt if any people have a
greater claim upon Englishmen at the present time than the people in Zululand. Ten
years ago England conquered this country
and took away from its people the discipline which made them in many ways the
finest of all the South African races, It was
undoubtedly a cruel discipline, and yet the
discipline had its good side, and there is
nothing now in its place. Surely the very
least that England can do is to show them
' a more excellent way,' and this is what
the Church Mission to Zululand is trying to
do."

A strange story is told by Capt. Joreph
Sims of the schooner Mirabel, which has
arrived at Philadelphia from Matanzas. The
vessel was manned by a new crew, a fact
which occasioned much surprise iu shipping
circles and caused the Captnin to be deluged
with questions by persons interested in the
ship and its crew. When seen by a reporter Capt. Sims appeared to be weary from
the questions put toliim.butchcerfullygavc
the reporter an account of his trip. He
said that when his vessel sailed from this
port for Matanzas on Jan 20 last, she was
manned by thirty stalwart sailors, mostly
Englishmen. Nearly all of them had set ved
on the Mirabel for a number of years, and
were capable seamen. Just before sailing
for Matanzas several new men had been
taken on, and there was no way of discovering their ability. This is the story in the
Captain's own words:
" I found that the new mon were all able
sailors and willing to work. There was one
man, however, who waB addicted to drink
to a greater extent than is usually the case.
He always had a bottle in his pocket and
drank continually during thc day. I did
not, of course, like to see this, but as ho
did not become intoxicated and was able
to work with tho best of them I said nothing.
This habit of drinking could not bo kept up
all the timo, however, without serious results iu time, and when hat lie had
no intention of giving it np I spoke tn him,
saying that he was drinking too much. He
did not take offence, but promised to give
up the habit while at sea.
" Ho did not drink anything the next
day but it was very hard on him, and I felt j
very sorry for the poor fellow. He was on
watch that night from midnight until daylight. The last thing I said to him before
hewenton deck was, " Remcmeber, Bilson,
about the liquor, to which he replied that 1
need not fear. Well it could not have been
more than two hours after I had retired
when I was awakened by a tremendous
noise on deck. Hastening above, I saw
two of my men endeavoring to hold Bilson
who was doing his best to leap overboard,
On inquiring what was the matter I was
told that the fellow was suffering from delirium tremens, and wanted to drown himself. He had broken his good resolution
and had been drinking more heavily than
before. After a severe struggle, during
which the men were severely handled by
the mandened man, Bilson was finally overpowered aud put in irons. He howled and
raved during the entire night, continually
shouting for some one to take them off.
The men whom I found holding Bilson when
I reached the deck said they had been awakened by hearing him shouting and running
around the deck. They went up to ascertain the cause of the commotion, and as
soon as they appeared Bilson made a motion as though about to jump into the water.
Quickly grasping him, they were engaged i
in trying to subdue him when 1 reached the i
1,1,,,.*
" But the strangest part of the story is,
yet to come.   Bilson did not recover from '
his attack of tremens, and died during the
afternoon. We kept him until the next day,
when, wrapping him in a sheet of canvas,
we consigned his body to the waves.
" Two nights afterward I was awakened
by a knock at my door, and upon opening
it saw the midnight watch standing before
ino with a face white as chalk and hair
almost standing on end. In a trembling
voice he told mo that Bilson was on deck
sitting on a coil of rope in the stern of the
boat. Of course I thought the man was
mistaken and told him that he must have
fallen asleep and dreamed he saw Bilson.
He said, however, that he had not been
asleep, and was positive he had seen either
Bilson or his ghost. He begged me to go
on deck and see. I finally consented and
went above.
"Upon reaching the deck I looked aft,
and to say that I was startled would be
putting it mild, I was dumbfounded.
There, upon a coil of rope, sat Bilson, with
his head erect, gazing fixedly into the water. I called to him, but he did not turn
his head. I then went, to the place where
ho sat, but when I reached the spot nothing but the rope was there.
"He did not appear that night, but tho
next night and a number of times after the
apparition appeared on deck and took its
scat upon the rope. Every man on board
saw it, and as it seemed to have no intention of leaving the vessel thc men became
frightened and vowed they would leave
when we reached port. The last time BU*
son's ghost appeared was the night before
we got to Matanzas. At tho usual hour we
were all ou hand walling for the apparition.
We had not long to wait.for in a short time
the ghost appeared,from whore no one could
tell, and look Its accustomed seat on the
rope. After gazing into thc water a short
timo it arose and pointed its linger in the
dire -lion of the town WO were approaching.
It then walked noiselessly lo the deck rail
and, looking Into the water, shuddered. It
again turnod and looked toward Matanzas,
then gave a leap and disappeared beneath
the waves without a sound. Every one
heaved asigh of relief, bill that night every
man on board made np his mind to leave
the Mirabel, and they all did,
"After unloading the vessel's cargo I
, null not iiuliii'c any one of them to sail on
the Wturn trip, and was forced to look up a
now orew, 'llio apparition did not appear
mi the passage to this city."
The Captain said he was not a supersliti
mis man, but ho could not but fool a little
bit. squeamish when lie saw the ghost. Ho
thinks I bat Bilson may have be Ml alive when
buried, and look the means above described
for gol ting even those who were instrumental iu having him buried at sea. The fact
remains, huwovor, that hia ghost did appear
mid I here is no way ot accounting for lhe
ui;, lory,

Tfli-! EiKTB'B MOTION.
II  Is *lle,-nl Ihal  llie Poles In  noting
llcsci'llie Circles.
One ol the most curious inquiries of a
scientific nature now under way is the investigation of the fixity of the earth's axil
of rotation. It appears from various astronomical observations that the laliludcs of certain observatories in Europe and the United
States are slowly changing. The changes
are exceedingly slight, so that only the
most delicate measurements can reveal
lliem ; but in many branches of science it ii
the small things that count most, since they
give the investigator his closest acquaintance with the operations of nature.
Yet, although lhe variations of latitude
that seem to have been detected are very
small���amounting, for instance, in tho
case ot the observatory of Pulkowa, in Russia, to a motion away from the North Pole
of six inches in a year���very interesting
deductions may be drawn from them. Mr.
(i. C. Comstock has suggested, in a careful
discussion of the subject, that the change
in the position of thc poles, which is indicated by the variations in question, might
possibly be the result ot a slight motion
still remaining over from a great shifting
of the earth's axis in long past timo, by
which the North Pole was brought from
the center of Greenland to ils present position.
The idea that the North Polo may once
have been in Greenland,arises from the fact
that Greenland was the center of the area
which was covered with ice during the glacial epoch. Such a shifting of the pole would,
then, serve to explain the disappearance of
tho ice sheet that once covered North
America as far south as tho latitude ol Now
York.
Mr. S. C. Chandler, after studying the
results of the observations that have boen
made as to variations of latitude, has do-
''.'.icetl the conclusion that all the changes can
be accounted for by supposing that the North
Pole revolves in a circle sixty feet in diameter, once in every four hundred and twenty-
seven days.
To many persons such inquiries may not
appear to be of much practical importance,
but is it not worth while to learn everything we can about this great ship of space
which is bearing us on a wonderful voyage
through the ocean of infinity, and every
peculiarity of whose motion has some relation to tho forces that control the apparently endless journey?
HOW TEE SULTAN EATS.
He IliniM II Lives Sliiiwly lull Feeds Lavishly Sl\ lltotiMiuil I'l-rsons.
The author of "The Sovereigns and
Courts of Europe" describes tho present
Sultan of Turkey as lead-.ngavery simple life.
He camo to the throne iu 1870, without any
agency of his own, and almost against his
own will, after living for many years in retirement, and no doubt finds his trappings
of royalty something of a burden.
When ilis said that he lives simply, however, the word must be understood as applying to his personal habits rather than to
ids ollicial i-urrouudings and expenditures.
Thus it is estimated that more than C00O
persons are fed every day at his Dohna
Bagtchc palace when he is there. The treasurer of the household has a pretty heavy
burden upon his shoulders.
There is a regularly organized force of
buyers, each charged with the purchase of
certain supplies for the palace. One man's
duty is to buy fish ; and to ilo this for (iCOO
persons is no light undertaking in a city
which has no great markets. About ten
tons a week are required, and to sccuro this
some twenty men are kept busy.
That there is enormous wasle and extravagance in tin kit,-liens is almost a matter of
course; it is said that enough is thrown
away daily lo '. oil a hundred families. But
such waste is not confined to a Turkish
royal household, and might be found in
kitchens nearer home, The surplus is
gathered up hythe beggars, with whom Constantinople abounds, and what still remains
is eaten by tho scavenger dogs.

Wagg���"Yes, it was one of the most expensive structures in the State, It cost

Salpinx ��� " You Bimply astound me I
Where wae it!"
Wagg���"It was the penitentiary." Preparatory to Housecleaning,
I have reason to believe a recipe for the
removal of half the dread, if not half the
work, of housecleaning would be welcomed
by all good housekeepers. I believe I have
found the recipe and hope it may prove as
effective in other cases as it has in my own.
It is this: look aftor the "odds and ends"
before the weather becomes settled enough
for actual cleaning to begin. It is wonderful what a number of odds and ends there
are to look after! But it is wise to lose
sight of that fact and begin on the good old
principle of one thing at a time.
First take the bedding in hand, that is,
the sheets and pillow cases. Know just
how many you need, and then find out how
many you have in good condition,and supply
the resulting deficiency as a first step, lor
ordinary use the unbleached, both for sheets
and pillow cases. If one objects to the
color they may know that it will soon bleach
out white, and it will wear at least twice as
long. I havo always retained a feeling of
gratitude toward the clerk who, when he
found I wanted unbleached���it was table
linen in this case, but the application is the
same���said. " Yes, the unbleached wears
three times ns long, for sometimes when
orders are back and must be hurried the
bleach is made too storng, and then the
���loth dosen't wear very well." The remembrance ol that remark has frequently settled
the question of "bleached or unbleached?"
for me since then.
The nine-quarter width is most satisfactory unless for single beds, for which the
eight quarter is wido enough. If there is a
baby in the family, the outer edges of the
sheets which have given out through the
center, will make good diapers. Make them
a double thickness square, and run the edges
together on the machine. The older parts
of the sheets and the worn pillow cases
should be put by themselves in a basket or
bag in the storeroom, ready to meet the demands for old cloths when the housecleaning
begins.
Tablecloths and napkins como next in
their demand for attention. Replace what
is necessary and here again let me advise
unbleached. The best of the old tablecloths
will be sufficiently good to make into table
napkins forevery-day use. If not, run them
double for diapers as you do the sheels.
The smaller pieces and the napkins can he
run double and quilted very openly for dish*
cloths. These iue particularly nice for fine
china, silver and glassware, as they are so
Eoft.
Towels come next. After replenishing your
stock, take any old ones that are good
enough and treat like the napkins for dish-
eloths. Flour sacks, neatly hemmed, make
good disl.;owels.
These processes not only rid you of the
sight of the disreputable-looking rags, but
give a comfortable sense of having a supply
in band of the " little things" which constitute so large a part of a housekeeper's supplies. Of course your rag bag will grow
apace with your basket of old cloths.
Next look over the summer clothing and
underclothes ot the family. Find which of
Tom's o'ttgrown clothes Dick can wear, and
which of Dick's, Harry can wear, then make
a list of the new garments needed with the
quantity of materials and trimming. With
this list in hand you will be able to mako a
judicious choice when any particular bargains or remnants are shown in the stores.
Place the garments which are ready for
wearing in a trunk by themselves, or in a
closet which may be cleaned ahead of time
and made ready for them. The garments
which need making over or alteriug should
also be placed by themselves, that they may
be found at a moment's notice when time to
work at them is found.
Old ginghams make excellent (lusters,
aud soft llannel pieces should be kept for
cleaning silver, Newspapers should he
carefully saved in a box or corner of the
storeroom, for freshening shelves and putting under carpets here and there during
housecleaning.
If there is an accumulation of soft, brown
paper, fold the pieces to a convenient size
for toilet paper, cut the edge with a sharp
carving knife or pair of shears, and with a
darning needle run a string through one
corner and tie long enough to hang up.
Stiller brown piper and writing paper, envelopes, and so forth, can bo put in a box
and given to the children to eut into bits
for the new cushion or pillow stuffing.
If these directions are followed I am sure
that at least apart of the mountain will be
felt to be removed, and the spring sewing
of garments can bo taken up and gotten
largely out of tho way before the cleaning
is begun, If it cannot there will at least
be the salisfaction of knowing just what
there is to do, and just where it is to be
found.

A despatch from Toronto says:��� About
nine days ago the authotities became cognisant of a curious complication of affairs
through the application of a man named
Henry Waites, who lives at 179 Simeoe
street, for a licence permitting him to keep
a baby farm. It was stated that two infants had been taken to Ids place and he desired to keep them for a time, provided
the licence was granted. The authorities,
believing it wise to investigate the case fully
before issuing such a certificate, notified the
Medical Health Department, and in turn
Dr. W. F. Bryans, district sanitary officer
of 24.J Carlton street, was authorised to
examine into and report on the case. He
discovered that at about 10 o'clock on the
night of the Sth instant two children,
twins, had been born in Mrs. Eliza Walker's
house, No. 45 Grange avenue. About 6.30
o'clock tho following morning Mrs. Walker's
seventeen year old daughter Lena started
out to try and find some person who would
he willing to take care of the infants for a
few weeks, money to be paid for such service. Lena Walker first called at the house
of Mrs. Margaret Memory, 4" Woolsley
street, who agreed to take and care for ono
of the children for a month at least. The
young woman went away and returned in
about twenty minutes with one of the babes
in a basket. She rapped at the door and
the man of the house appeared. He would
not let her in, saying that they did not want
any babies there. Mrs. Memory told the
young woman that if she would take the infant to her sister, Mrs. Pountain's house,
lo.'i Farley avenue, she could, perhaps,
make arrangements for keeping the child
there. Miss Walker did so and was successful in finding a place for the first baby. Mrs.
Pountain took and dressed the child and the
youngwoman wentaway. After being gone
foracouple of hours Lena Walker returned to
153 Farley Bvenue and stated that she had
found a person who was willing to take
both ot the children. Mrs. Pountain gave
her back the baby and 10 o'clock she reached .Mrs. Henry Waite's place on Simeoe
street, carrying the infant in the same basket that she had used earlier next morning.
Tiie same night about 9 o'clock Lena
brought the second child and left it with
Mrs. Waite. The last child had not been
properly dressed and both of them seemed
to be suffering from exposure. It was not
until the 16th inst. that Dr. Bryans was
called on to visit tlie place and at lhat time
he found them in a shocking condition.
The eyes of one of the babes had never
opened, and they were both sullering from
purulent ophthalmia, probably the result
of neglect after birth. After much difficulty the Medical Health Department
succeeded in having the twins admitted to the Sick Children's Hospital,
and they were taken away from Simeoe street cm March 17th. Since that time
one of them has been adopted by a party in
Hamilton, while the other is still suffering,
and will in all probability he blind should it
live. An alii lavit has been sworn out
against Mrs. Walker, charging her with
neglect of these infants, which may possibly
cause permanent bodily injury. The most
mysterious part of the affair seems to be as
to the parentage of the twins. Mrs. Walker
states I hat the mother's name is Mrs. Smith,
while the neighbors asscrl that a young unmarried woman is the mother.
A Dry Shower-Bath.
An Irishman being advised to take shower-baths, a friend explaiieil to him how to
fit one up by the use of a cistern and cullender. Pat set to work and had the thing
done at once. Subsequently he was met by
the party who had given thc advice, and on
being asked how he enjoyed the baths, exclaimed, " Bei'.ad, but I enjoyed it greatly,
and kept dhry too I"
Asked how h: managed to take the shower and yet remain dry, he replied ;
"Shure, now, ye didn't tliink I was going
to stand under the water without au umbrella."
Oh I Yes They Had-
Once at a little dinner party in New York,
one of the guests, the younger brother of an
Knglish nobleman, expressed with commendable freedom his opinion of America and
its people,
" I (10 not altogether like the country,"
said the young gentleman, " for one reason,
because you have no gentry here "
" What do you mean by gentry ':" asked
another of the company.
" Well, you know,'' replied the Engl sh-
nian ; " well���oh, gentry aro thoso who
never do any work themselves, and whose
fathers ' -; re them never did any."
"Ah!" exclaimed his interlocutor,
" then we have plenty of gentry in America.
But we don't call them gentry. We call
them tramps." A laugh went round thc
lahlc, and the young Englishman turned his
conversation into another channel.
Austria Disturbed iiy d'ourko's Warlike
rri-piirntlon*.
The Austrian Government is greatly disturbed by the attitude of the military in
Russia Poland, (len. Gourko, acting, it is
presumed, under orders fi om St. Petersburg,
appears to be making preparation for hostilities against some power, whether Austria
or Germany is not apparent. The defences
of Warsaw are being strengthened, ami
householders have been notified of tho number of soldiers that each houso will have to
accommodate in the event of a Russian
army taking up quarters in the city.
Persons whose loyalty is questioned are
expelled from Warsaw and other Polish
cities, and some arc deported to Siberia.
The guards on the frontier have been reinforced, and fortified camps have been established at convenient points for a sudden
movemont in the direction of either Prussia
or Austria, Large bodies of troops are in
continual motion, and altogether the situation is calculated to stimulate anxiety both
at Vienna and Berlin.
Gen. Gourko returned a short time ago
from a personal conference with the Czar,
and preparations have heen increased since
he came back to his command.
In tho event of a European war the
Russian infantry would probably tiso tho
old Berdan rifles with smokeless powder,
as the magazine rifles now being manufactured in France will not bo roady for
another year at tbe very earliest. A great
deal of " war talk" is rife amongst tho
military elements in all parts of the Russian
empire, which is particularly directed
against Germany.
The Russian military manicuvrcs during
the present year will be on a gigantic scale.
The force engaged will consist of the Guards
and the First Army Corps from St. Petersburg, the Grenadier Corps and the Thirteenth Army Corps from Moscow, the Ninth
and Tenth Army Corps from Charkoll', and
the Eleventh and Twelfth Army Corps from
Kieff. Tho troops from the two mentioned
districts will form under the command of
Gen. Obrutschoff, chief of the Russian headquarters staff, Eastern .Army, while the remaining half will constitute the Western
army under Gen. Dragoniroff. To each army
will be added four cavalry divisions, making
a grand total of '200,000 of all rank.
The Russian Ambassador is said to have
given assurances to Austria that there is uo
hostile intent on the part of Russia in the
extraordinary military movements in Poland ; but the Austrian Government is not,
for that reason, ceasing to take vigorous
precautions against a sudden attack. Gen.
Krieghammer, at Cracow, has been ordered
to maintain increased vigilance, and the
troops throughout Galicia have been placed
in a condition for immediate service.
An important experiment, designed to
test the power of endurance possessed by
the Russian infantry soldier in campaigning
work, during a period of intense cold, has
lately been made in a district near the
western frontier of Russia. It was desired
to discover under what degree of cold.troops
could camp out in tents, and for this purpose eight infantry men were chosen at random. The snow, which lay deep on the
ground, was levelled over a certain area, a
tent pitched, and its interior covered with
mats, or which were laid fifty-six pounds of
straw. The men, accoutred in heavy gray
coats and Wellington boots, lay down to
rest, using their knapsacks as pillows, at 9
o'clock in the evening. Outside the thermometer, protected from the wind blasts,
then indicated 31�� Fahrenheit. An officer
remained outside all night making observations.
At 1 o'clock the temperature inside the
tent was 17�� above zero and outside at zero.
Toward morning the thermometer gradually fell without and within. Until 3 o'clock
the men slept quite comfortably, but toward
4, when the cold became to > intense, sleep
was impossible. The soldiers left thoir tents
and ran about in the open air to prevent being frozen to death.
Judicious Advertising.
The advertiser often slights this, which
is a most important branch of his business.
He prcpaics his copy hurriedly and without
judgment or thought, leaves its display to
the printer's taste, does not attract the eye
or the dollar ot the reader, and then Bays
advertising does not pay. Advertising is
an art, and does pay, if made a study. The
advertising agent has goods just as legitimate and valuable to sell as the salesman of
drug- or jewelry, and this fact is recognize
by advertisers. The essentials of advertising
can perhaps be stated as but three in number : you must have what people want or
cun be made to want; you must select the
proper medium to reach them, and you
must tell your story in an attractive and
forceful manner. All tho resources of
modern ingenuity are called to tho aid of
the advertiser���art, poetry, music, high
literary ability, keen business insight, all
contribu c their quota. Lincoln's famous
Baying that" you can fool all the people pari,
of the lime, and part ol lhe people all the
time, hut you can't fool all the
people all tlio time," must not he
denied in praciicu, if one expects lo
build np au endui ing sueoess, Advertising
is afield ofau infinitude of variety ; what
succeeds in one brunch, is a failure in another. Intelligent study of the question is
an absolute necessity.��� [Phurin Era.
On an Average,
A well-known dean, on returning from an
examination, amused his friends with the
following aneodote, The children, he said,
did not seem well-up in arithmetical terms,
so he asked, "Can any little hoy tell me the
meaning of lhe word 'average?'"
After a momentary pause a small hand wvs
raised.
" Well, my boy," inquired the dean,
" what is an aven go?"
" A hen's net," replied the boy.
" A what?" exlaimed the dean.
" A place for a hen to lay on."
" Who taught \ou that?" asked the
teacher very sternly.
"I read it in the reading-book," answered
the child.
The deon promised Ihe buy a shilling if bo
could find the place ; and ainul thu breathless silence that ensued, the boy read the
I. bowing : "A good hen lays on an average," clc.
Tho good dean, of course, paid tho boy for
finding thc piuce.

It was a'l on account of the baby.   Not lented and was very kind.    First of all he

nor a dirty dissgreeable baby.   O dear, no 11 Eddy's safety and whereabouts, for as ha
On  the contrary, as Eddy himself would  said:
have told you, ordinarily, it was just thel    "They'll be worried enough about you,
nicest, sweetest, merriest baby anvieii-year- i I'll w,.ger."
Then he had some supper brought to the
tired, hungry hoy to eat, and when that was
finished he made a bed for him on a bench
behind the desk, where, in spile of his
strange surroundings and all the excitement
old boy ever had for a sister. But there
certainly was one thing about it that Eddy
objected to���it had to be taken care of !
Ami as Mamma Brown was a very busy
little woman, who did her own housework
and sewing, and Papa Blown was away all
day earning bread and butter for his family,
it sometimes becanio necessary for Eddy���
who was the only brother of this baby who
had no sister���to help take care of her.
And so it happened, one day as Eddy was
leaving tho table that Mamma Brown
said :
" Eddy, get home from school as soon as
you can this afternoon ; I want to leave
the baby with you while I run down town
to do a little shopping."
Then tho trouble began. Eddy didn't say
anything, he was loo well taught for that,
but a horrible scowl came over his face, and
snatching his cap he slammed out of the
house. Yes, literally " slammed," for he
banged the door open fiercely, and banged
it shut again after him, making such a
racket that baby wakened from her nap with
a frightened cry, and Carlo, dozing under
the table, was so startled he quite forgot
his table manners and fell fo barking furiously. Away went Eddy down thc street, still
scrawling and muttering angrily :
" That's always the way ! Don't sec why
I've got to take caro o' tho baby the whole
time. Can't goany place, juston her account.
Wish we didn't have any baby, so I just
do 1"
Ho looked a little frightened at his own
wicked wish then. In his heart he knew
very well that he didn't wish anything of
the sort, and that he would he as sorry as
any one could he if the baby wero to die.
But he was loo angry to admit it, or recall
his ugly speech, He was more quiet though
after that outburst, and fell into a brown
study with the scowl still on his face. When
he reached the school-house gate he drew
his clenched fists from his pockets, where he
had thrust them first, and slapping one upon
the other he said determinedly, " I'll show
'em I ain't going to take care of the baby
all the time," And with a resolute look he
marched into the building with the rest of
the pupils.
When school was out, contrary to his
usual custom, Eddy avoided the boys with
whom he generally went home, and taking
a round about way he succeeded in reaching
the yards of the railroad���which was his
objective point���without being seen by any
one likely to know him. This was what he
wanted, for it was part of his plan that no
one should know where he went or for what
purpose. He was quite at home in the
"yards "among the cars, for it waB a favourite resort for the boys, particularly
those who, like Eddy, lived in that vicinity,
and passed back and forth every day on
their way to and from school.
There were cars of all kinds standing
quietly on the tracks���passenger coaches,
freight-cars, cabooses and box-cars, single
and in trains, just as they had been brought
in or were boing made ready to go out.
Eddy, passing hurriedly among them, finally selected a freight-car as best suited for
his purpose, and climbing in at the open
door on the side, he curled up snugly in the
farthest corner out of sight of any one who
might pass by. " This is a first-rate place,"
thought he, " nobody'll know where I am,
and I'll just wait until its too late for mamma to go down town, and then I'll sneak
home." And he chuckled at the thought of
his mother's discomfiture. But the dark
comer of the freight-car was a very quiet
place, and curled up there comfortably with
nothing to do, it wasn't long until Eddy
tell asleep. If it hadn't been for that, his
plans might have worked admirably, but
that liap interfered with them very seriously-
When he awakened everything was dark,
and, to his terror, the car was no longer
standing still, but was moving, and moving
rapidly too. Ho scrambled to his feet and
made his way to the door. It wasshut and
fastened, and through the openings below
and above he could Bee that it was dark outside as well as in the car, then the startling
truth broke forcibly upon the boy's mind.
It was night, and he was shut up alone in a
freight-oar and being carried rapidly away
from homo 1 Where or in what direction
he didn't know, neither could he tell how
long he had been travelling nor how far,
but he knew enough to terrify him anil
make him miserable.
Ho pounded on the closed door and shouted for help, but thc noise of I he train drowned the sound of his cries and b'ows, and no
one heard him, He I egan to think his
chances for ever getting home were very
small, and as he thought of his father and
mother and how anxious and worried they
would be at his absence, and how they
would search for him, the great hot tears I
filled his eyes and rolled down his face.
How he repented his ill-hiunor. How con-1
teniplible it seemed now.    Why, he heliev
of it, he fell asleep.
noxt morning an oilicer took him out
to breakfast, and then put him aboard a
passenger train, telling the conductor to
" collect at the other end of the line, where
his father'11 meet him."
An hour later he was at home, and baby
was in lhc cradle and Carlo under the table,
just as he had left them ; and though he
was made lo feel his sin,how glad he was to
he thoro ! And how persistently he kissed
them all over and over again, and promised
never, never to behave so badly again. And
i.s for the dear baby sister, well you may
Ih.- sure Eddy never tried to escape taking
care of her again after such a lesson.
A British Warship in Daneer,
The new-war-ship Plassy, which left
England recently for service on lho East
Indies Station experienced terrific weather
nfter passing Cape Finisterre, and much
damage was done to tho vessel. A feedpump was first broke down, and two or
three hours later another feed-pump gave
out. The ship was then headed for Vigo,
but heavy rain now set in and quite obscured the land, and as the wind had veered
from south to west and increased in violence,
it was deemed imprudent to approach a lee
shore. Accordingly the ships head was
brought to the wind for the night, with the
view of riding out the gale. Just as it was
getting dark, however, the chief engineer
reported that the steam pump had broken
down, and that water was rising in the
stokeholds. The hand-pumps were at onco
manned, and men were lohl off to bale tho
water out with buckets, But this proved
of little use as the bunker lids had started
owing to the working and vibration of the
ship, and every sea that broke over her
rushed into the bunkers ��� the plates iu the
stokeholds were sliding about, and the floors
were a foot deep in water. Two hours
later the engineer reported that the water
was gaining and that it was difficult to keep
the tires in. Shortly after this soundings
were obtained, and it was found that the
ship was in perilously shoal water, During
the night, the force of the wind was logged
"eleven," and the starboard lifeboat was
washed away. This was followed by a report from tha engineer that he could not
get water into the boilers. This state of
things continued until noon the following
day,when the sun shone out and sights were
taken, by which it was ascertained that the
Plassy was about forty miles off Vigo. Soon
afterwards the wind and sea rapidly moderated, land was sighted about five o'clock in
the afternoon and two hours later the vessel
entered Vigo Harbor, where sho was expected to remain about a week to make good
her defects.
Pleasures of the Deep,
The enthusiastic boy, after finishing the
last chapter of a book called " The Pleasures of the Deep," pleaded with his father
to let him ship aboard a small schooner.
The old man smiled a grim smile, took
the ease under consideration, and in a few
days the boy was on the rolling deep, as a
greenhorn on a vessel in the coai trade.
The next week he appeared at home,
lame and stiff, his throat sore, one eye nearly shut, and a feeling of humbleness running
all through him.
" What, back again !' cried the old man
us the boy entered the house.
" Yes, father, I want to saw all the
wood for winter, bring in all the coal, clean
out the cellar .and paint the barn, and you
needn't give me but two meals a day."
" Don't you like sailing ?"
" Father, you don't understand anything
about it. The captain sailed away on Sunday the same as any other day, and I believe he swore even harder. He wouldn't
give me au umbrella when it rained, ho
made me sit up most all niglit, and two or
three times called me up at midnight and
made me haul rope and drag old sails about.
There wasn't a simile night when all of us
got off to bed at nine o'clock, and there
wasn't a day that he did not bully us about
and stop us every time we got reading anything good. I like land father, and 1 wish
I owned a farm.'1
The old man chuckled, and thc boy turned away from Peter Simple last week with
a shudder.
ed he would be willing to take euro of the!
baby all day, and every day of his life, if he '
only might get home.
Then all al once the train stopped, and
ho heard voices outside and saw lights glimmering through the oraoksof the door, Eddy
knew tbey must he at a station, and gathering all strength he made another frantic effort to mako himself heard. Tins timo he
was successful.
" What's that?" demanded a loud voice.
" Must be somebody in thoro. It comes
from the car," said another.
In another moment the door was opened
and Eddy found himself standing on a platform in tho open air, with a group of men
about him, plying him with questions
The Czar and the Kaiser.

The following story reaches me from a
good source, but 1 give it under alt

late speech, a gentlemen who was
present remarked that, whilst his Majes

story, instituted inquiries, ond, finding it
was true, reported lhe matter to M. do

said to him���"Tell your Kaiser, when he
wants to begin pulverlsh g, 1 will throw
half a million men across thc frontier with

which pretty accurately represents the pro-

Although the season is uot far
enough advanced for aotual work to
commence, prospectors und others
continue to arrive nuily. Among the
latest arrivals at the Merchant Hotel
is Mr. J. H, Anderson, of Hamilton,
tint.   Yonr correspondent called on
bim and was courteously received.
Mr. Anderson is here iu the interests
of American and Canadian capitalists
and is open to buy anything worth
buying.   He has had a vast experience in mining in different StateB aud
thoroughly understands bis business.
lie aibo represents Messrs. Ryckniau
and partners, ol Hamilton, in their
Fish Creek property, and will proceed to that locality in a few days for
tue purpose of inukiug uu examination of the olaims, uud will probaoly
ship 1,000 lbs, of ore eusi for a mill
test.   If everything is satisfactory
smelting and reduction works will be
t i i cted there in the near future. The
Golden Smelting Company, whioh is
also interested in claims there, has
promised to put up smelting works;
and while there is no reason to suppose thut the company will not do so,
Mr. Anderson Bays lhat if it does uot,
bis associates will.   On being asked
what be thought of Illeoillewuet from
a mining point of view, be said:
" You have grand 'prospects,' and no
doubt some of them will become val
liable mines.    While I um on this
subject," he continued, "I cannot
help lemarkiug thut some of your
prospectors are, to use a mild expression, a little lazy.   Iu the Stules
we prospect in pairs, and when we
come across a ledge aud both think
well enough of it to prospect it, we
do some work.   If it shows up fairly
well we keep at it, uud orobabiy oo
a tuousund dollars' worth ot work J
before asking anyone to buy it.   16y
doing that we have something to
show..  No mining man will tune the
trouble to look at a surface prospect
with the intention of buying unless!
there is a big excitement in camp,
and then a lake would sell.   Hoa-, I
understand, it is different.   Prospectors stake off claims aud do the bare
amount ol assessment work  .v.......
the prescribed time, aud then wait
for somebody to come along und give
them a big price for a 'surface prospect.' This, I contend, is a mistake.
They should enueavor, us far as pos-!
sible, to ascertain if their cluiui-s ure
