can be no question about, tho superior

From tho first year of its manufacture the demand for it has steadily
grown. Even in the years which
were marked by our business depression there was no pause in the increase of the sale of it, fn tin- dull
years of 1870-77 aud '78 tho sales of
it were vastly greater than in tho
prosperous year 1878.

Sunday Closing- at Illecillewaet.
Si,'!,���It was with wonder I read
in tliis week's Stab, under tho heading of "Illecillewaet News," a statement which is news indeed to most
of us here, In tho matter of Sunday
closing your correspondent says:
"II is a sad sight to seo men iu all
stages of drunkenness on the Lord's
day." I might say here that this
accusation is as false as it is scurrilous In fact, uot long since I heard
an eminent M.P. (now here) remarking on the order and quiet
maintained iu our community; and
il speaks well for the behavior of our
citizens that though we have no less
than three licensed houses in onr
town the authorities havo not found
it necessary to appoint a constable.
It appears to be somewhat inconsis��
tent on your part to publish your
correspondent's remarks auent the
hotel accommodation in this town
while in the same issue appears an
advertisement extolling the merits
and conveniences of a first-class hotel
here.���Yours truly,        VEliAI.
Illecillewaet, July 4th.
(Tlierc is scarcely a newspaper in
oxistenoo that has not had this same
charge of inconsistency brought
against it, but were editors to reject
news or statements that clashed with
their advertisements they would bo
destroying that freedom for which
the British Press is noted. We do
not undertake to endorse every state-
meDt appearing iu our columns, nor
cau wo always vouch for tho truth of
them, but only a one-sided editor
(and consequently a one-sided paper)
would exclude all matter appearing
to be antagonistic to his advertisers.
Our correspondent speaks of the
OAPAOITI when he instances the Victoria ut Revelstoke. The table kept
by the Merchant Hotel at Illecillewaet is "PIBST-cmsb iu every respect,
and our correspondent would be tho
last man to hint otherwise. As for
the charge of Sunday drunkenness
our correspondent this week flatly
contradicts the assertion, and 6ays
that the author of it must be troubled
with biliousness. This statement
will surely acquit the town of such
a charge, and the verdict will be
"Not guilty, but don't do it again,"

Ravmo.vd Sewlvo Machikh im Stock CHAPTER II.
I need not dwell on that period ; it lies in
my memory more like a hideousdroam than
so many weeks and months of actual life,
and like- a dream, there areonlv portions of
it whicli stand out from the shadows���adventures, incidents, scraps of scenery, seen
in clearer moments. It is enough to Bay
that I came iiro-.unl gradually, and began to
see things as tliey should be seen. But the
hate was all gone, and love alone was left.
Ves, love was left, though badly nourished, having no hopes to diet it;
and I got accustomed to think
of Doris us one who was dead aud yet living,
and very lovable withal, even as Beatrice
was to Dante.
So a year passed en, and left me minus
some thousands of dollars. I had found
my way iuto Colorado, and was a miner at
one of the great joint-stock claims which
have taken tho place of the old-fashioned
diggings. The rough work suited my
humour, and there waa life and go in the
town and much distraction in the game of
Pharaoh, of which more in its place. For
nine months I had not heard from Canada,
and had ceased to think of the place. .My
father hud taken kindly to his new life,
which waa all I needed to know. I wished
to be, and was, a solitary in thc world,
though I mixed much with men, finding
more isolation in a crowd than in lonely
places. But I was beginning to be restless
again, and to wish for another change,
when something happened whicli I had not
looked for, but whicli makes me always
thankful J played Pharaoh that night at
It was nothing more than a quarrel and a
whipping out ot revolvers,and then a sudden
lane of rough figures looking on while the
two fired from either end. I heard thc low
thud of the bullet as it struck Black Jake,
and 1 caught him in my arms as he fell
backwards withsuddenlimpness and whitening face. I had only seen him once before,
and he had roused a vague recollection
whicli had made me look again at him, wondering what it was about him that was ao
familiar. He had been at one of the far
tables, or perhaps his speech would have
given me the cue. Now, as he opened hia
eyes and stared up into mine, he turned his
lipafrom the flask and aaid: "God forgive
us���it's Master Sedley I"
" That's so. Take a pull at this, and tell
me who you are," said I surprised at my
own name.
The liqueur was of little use; for his
heart was slowing every moment; but it
brought a flicker to his face aud a word or
two more to hia lips, '(lie me yer ear-
closer," hewhispered. " Bob Hilton���Ranston postman���ay, vo' know me now. They

tremble went through him, and
he slipped off without another word,
leaving me staring at the dyed whiskers and dissipated features with ringing ears, and a thousand thoughts and feelings all set loose together, to the overwhelming of my wita, which seemed quite un-
was fast asleep.
But as I lay like any log, and the hours
went on. till all in the city but myself could
hear the cathedral cluck ring them out, some
part of my brain woke up, and finding
roason still a sluggard, started straightway a-dreamiug, It was a queer
medley for the most part, and no better
than othor fantasies of the sort; but to this
day I remember it more as a real thing than
a trick of the brain, if suoh it was. There
in the darkness of the prairie was the deep
red rose that Doris had given me, borne by
an army of fireflies, in whose united
radiance the flowers lay on a hammock oi
golden threads and flitted before me mockingly while I stumbled in chase of it. Ay,
it was the rose, and it blushed in the embrace of Doris's own hair. I had seen it
shine so at sundown when the light got in
it and made it luminous with a gold not in
ils own, as the grass blades seem shafts of
emerald fire when the glow-worma are
among them, The phantasm roae and fell
in the blackness, while thc hundreds nf
little light points made a shitting circle
round. On, on they flitted, over eluding

there was such eproaoli in her eyes that I

Long after they had carried him away,
and the noise and confusion were spent, I
stood leaning on the bar counter, staring
vacantly through the smoke of the saloon,
seeing and hearing nothing, but conscious
of a growing fiend wilhin me, and a lightening of my teeth as I reckoned thing- up and
saw in all its clearness the perfidy that had
come between us. Tbe letter���waa not
that a part of it ? Could Doris from her
heart's heart have written such a letter at
all? It was a forgery, a trick, and I had
been a fool to be duped by it���nay, a villain
in very truth ; for I hue
and given her pain
lisBolvcd into a kind of crimson and golden
atmosphere, in which I laved myself with
beating hands, while it widened more and
more, lighting all things round, till 1 saw
that I stood in a crowded churchyard inall
the soft sheen of a Bummer's morning. I
rubbed my eyes aa the people moved about,
some towards the wooden porch,some taking
places on the path, till there was an avenue
of smiling faces and one slim figure, followed by her maids, wending slowly
through all,
It was Doris, all white and beautiful in
bridal vestments ; but her golden head was
bent, and there was heaviness in her step.
As if she were entering some prison-house,
never to know liberty again, she paused at
the-rorch, and looked long and wistfully
back into the sunshine. And I could see
the thin face and the pain deep down in her
eyes, knowing all the meaning of her long
look, but uiiable to move, as ahe paaaed in
and out of my sight. Then the clanging of
the bells died away into a melody of old
time, which they quaintly chimed, while
the people thronged into the church, leaving me alone among the headstones. The
agony was too much. I wrenched free my
voice and shrieked her name���and awoke,

yolk into two tablespoonfuls of sweet cream,
and add to the boiled peaa after they have
been drained. Three tablespoonfuls of boiled peas is a delicious addition to almost any
kind of soup in which vegetables arc used,
and when any boiled peas are leftover they
should be saved to add to the next day's
soup. No vegetable looses more sweetness
when stale than peas. To be served in perfection they should be picked in the dew of
the morning and cooked the same day.
They should never be shelled until just before the time of cooking. They should after
picking be kept in a cool, dark place until
ready for shelling. If there is any delay in
cooking them after they are shelled, cover
them with a damp cloth.

Next morning I started for N't
of the Tabernacle. Nothing will be better
for the church at the Tabernacle than a
distinct and radical chat
copy of the past would be sure to end iu
weakness and failure. Next to the church
itself the Pastors' College may be regarded
as the most important of all the institutions
of the Tabernacle. During the May meetings the annual conference of the Pastors'
College has been held, and matters of the
Aral importance have been earnestly discussed and most happily settled. The Pastors'
College was very dear to the heart of its
founder. With rare sagacity and equal unselfishness lie had the trust deeds drawn so
that the whole Baptist denomination should
have the honor and responsibility of ita
The church at the tabernacle, the men
who have been educated there, and the
whole Baptist denomination are in honor
bound lo aeep this institution in good working order, an 1 they will do it. The traditions and the inspirations will always be
linked with its founder's name, audit will
be for many years a 1 ving monument to
his memory. It waa a toregone conclusion
that Rev.  James  A. Spurgeonvahould be
the frill, over which one can wear the fashionable Swiss belt. Nothing is more comfortable for summer wear than a plain, light
skirt and a loose, cool blouse waist.
The fashions of the present hour in millinery prove more conclusively than ever
that it is the effect the bonnet has on tho
head more than any new shape or fancy that
counts. Everything and anything can be
worn provided it ia becoming. The trimming
is put on the back ; it is put on the front;
it is put on both back and front on the
same bonnet or hat; it is high ; it is low ;
it is anything the taste and fancy of the
wearer prefers. Some of lost summer's hats
and bonnets are retrimracd, and no one
would ever guess they were not the latest
style, and, if the truth were known, there
are not a few pretty bonnets of even earlier
date coming out as good if not better than
new this summer. It all depends upon the
taate and ingenuity and economy of the
wearer. A hat that looka old to the one
who knows its age is admired as new after
a few fresh touches, by the outside observer.
The stiff and awkward upstanding bows are
still favoured by tho conventional and inartistic miller, and worn by young women
who do not realize thoir ungracefulness.

To a practical person this may be simplified. We know that a bath is to refresh as

I often divided in the centre, the upper por-

the skirt, the upper portion of thin material
over pink silk. It was studded with
jewels. Many women wore ft short wreath
of llowers on thc upper portion of the train
of the same color as the brocaded train,
while others were made of thin gauze with
full frillings of the material. These seemed
to puzzle the Queen's pages when they were

ere they entered tbothroiic-room, the trains

The Prettiest Waist of All.
The prettiest of all summer waists is made
as follows : Take as tho receipt books say, a
sufficient amount of silk, porcale, lawn, or
even zephyr, aay four yards of silk, and the
rest accordingly. Make the back of the
waist with three plaits on each side the
center, turned toward each other, and about
one and ono-quarter inches broad. Let
these plaits lap well at tbe bottom of the
waist. Gather the waist in front at the
neck, not in the shoulder seams, and again
at thc bottom of the waist, and finish it
down the front with a biaa rulllo one and
one-half inches wide. Make full slecvea,
like those on small boys' shirt waists, with
turned-back cuffs rallied, and a round turndown collar also rallied. These should be
worn outsido the blazer or jacket, and when

Hero are some good ways of preparing one
of the most healthful and least expensive of
materials for desserts and sweetmeats:
RHUBARB Jam. -Peel and cut the rhubarb
into nice-sized pieces, and to every quart
givo one pound of good, moist sugar; put
the sugar over the rhubarb and leave it
twenty-four hours to draw oul the juice.
The sugar sinks, but doea not dissolve. Boil
the sugar and juice together for twenty
minutes. After it begins to boil put in the
rhubarb and boil slowly twenty minutes
longer. If only allowed to simmer gently it
will not require to be stirred, and the pieces
of rhubarb will thus remain separate. This
will keep good ft year if kept n a cool, dry
storeroom. In making rhubarb jam, orange
peel pared thinly and tree from the white,
gives it a most agreeable flavor; by preserving one quantity of the rhubarb with lemon
peel, and another with orange peel, two
different jams cau be produced out of the
same material.
Rui'iianii AN'D Ai-i'i.K Jki.i.v.���Peel and
cut up one good-sized bundle of rhubarb ;
peel, core, and quarter three pounds of apples, the thin rind and the juice of half a
dozen lemons ; put all together into the
preserving kettle with one and one-half
pints of soft water. Boil until reduced to
a pulp, strain the juice through a jelly
strainer, weigh, and allow ono pound of
loaf sugar to every pound of juice, add the
sugar, boll, akim well, and when it jellies
on the skimmer, pour into jan,and when cold,
tie or seal down. The pulp, stewed with
white sugar, can be used for jam puddings,
or is very nice to put into a glass dish, covered thickly with sugar, then a layer of
thinly-sliced sponge cake, an In nice custard
poured over all.
Rhubarb with Fms.��� Take six pounds
of rhubarb (weighed after being cut and
peeled), one pound of tigs, and a quarter of
a pound of candied lemon peel; cut the figs
and lemon peel small, place them over the
rhubarb, cover all with five pounds of moist
sugar, and let stand until the next day ;
then boil slowly one hour.
Riiuhaui! Axn Bread asd Butter Pod-
him;. Prepare the rhubarb as for a pie ;
cover the bottom of & pudding dish with
slices of bread and butter; cover with a
layer of rhubarb cut in short pieces; sprinkle thickly with sugar; put on another layer
of bread and butter, and so ou until the
dish is full. Cover, and steam for half an
hour; then remove the lid, and bake until
nicelv browned.
Rhubarb Tart.���Do not peel the rhubarb, merely wash it and wite it dry. Line
a pie dish with puff paste, nil it up with
very small pieces of the rhubarb, add the
necessary amount of sugar, a teaspoonful of
ground ginger, the grated peel of half a
lemon, and the juice of two oranges, Bake
rather slowly.
Stewed Rhubarb,���This is best cut iu
short lengths, stewod in sugar and a very
little water, and served with boiled rico
around the dish. A little good sweet cream
added gives it a very delicate taste.
Selection of Stalks for Presbrvino,���
The lite supply of rhubarb ii the best for
all preserving purposes, as grown during
the heat of tho summer itrcquires less sugar
than the spring supply, Cure should bo
taken to select good stalks, brittle and full
of juice. Mits. Brows, All About the farm.
A correspondent asks us for some informa
tion upon the subject of green nittiiur
and wonders bow
it is that a given crop
grown from a soil can enrich that soil by
being   again    turned    under,    aud   expresses bis opinion that no more can be
given back to the land than bus been taken
from it,   His mistake is in supposing that
the entire nourishment of tbe  manuring
crops, especially   when  they   consist  of
leguminous plants such as clover, alfalfa,
etc., comes from the soil ; on the contrary,
these plants have ton, large degree the property of drawing some of their moat valuable element from the fttmoapherc.   But
if they could only obtain food frrm tho
soil, certain of the plants would still be of
value in furnishing sustenance for certain
others.   For instance, the small grains obtain their food almost wholly from the five
or six inches of top Boil, nnd successive
cropping would soon exhaust this while the
lower soil was yet rich in   tho   needed
elements,    The   roots   of   the    leguminous plants go lower down and draw upon
these stores, and then by being ploughed
under and decomposing near the surface
they again enrich the top soil.   By a judicious rotation of clover and small grains a
farm may be cropped very heavily and constantly increaso in fertility, and if the clover is cut and fed to cattle, and the manure
carefully returned to the land, and even
greater income may be had without any detriment to the soil.
The development of a profitable dairy cow
depends very much upon the treatment that
she receives as a calf, Tho good traits that
she inherits may be still further developed,
or they may quite as easily be seriously
stunted and dwarfed, Tbe calf and the
heifer must be treated kindly and fed generously and judiciously with such food us will
best secure liberal growth of bone and
muscle, together with a hardy nnd vigorous
constitution. It is not best to breed them
so that they will drop thc first calf until
somewhat after two years of age, as earlier
breeding has a tendency to weaken thc constitutional vigor, She should then be kept
in milk as long as possible, and the period
can be extended by good feeding, as the tendency once formed in that direction will be
apt to continue. For the first five years the
cow should be treated as though immature,
that is, fed and handled so as to promote
constant growth and development.
One great benefit derived from the dairy,
and one we are afraid that is too little appreciated, is that it affords a steady cash
income, a little almost every day right
through the year. There is nothing else on
the farm, except the poultry, that enn do
this, and the poultry can only in a much
smaller degree. A nice roll of good butter
to sell every time one goes to town helpa toward those little expenses, which, if allowed
to run, so soon amount to big bills. Then
it requires the best part of some big
crop, tlie wheat, or the hogs, or a
couple of fat steers to pay them off. Farming
is a great deal easier and more satisfactory
when it is followed in such a way as to dispense with store bills; but many find this
almost impossible, unless they have some
such means of constant income. When
bills are run up there is not often the same
close attention to small expenditures, and
so the totals foot up surprisingly large.
Injudicious feeding ia a source of constant
and enormoua waste upon  the majority of
our farma.   Once in a while we find, in our
travels about the country, a man who has
realized the economy of correct feeding and
so never gives a  mouthful to  any of his
stock where there can be a possible chance
of their wasting it.   Others  throw clean,
bright hay upon the ground in a muddy
barnyard, where a good portion of it is sure
to be trampled under foot and fouled. Some
men who feed under cover have no suitable
feeding racks, and so the hay is pulled from
the manger and much of it  is wasted.
Corn also is  often fed  to bogs  in muddy
barnyards, fields, or pens, so that much of it
is tramped so deeply that the hogs never find
it. Corn-fodder,stacked out of d
ed by the wind and  weat
deteriorates in feeding value.   Even      r,
made of brau  or meal that has cost good
money, is fed in shallow troughs in whicli
the animals step and wallow  until half ia
spilled upon the ground.   This way of feed-
is the worst sort of folly, and  is a  double
loss, a loss of the labor of growing the food,
and of the prospective profit that would result if it were properly fed out.
While the liberal feeding of com will increase the flow of milk, it still is not an
economical food to use in the dairy. The
same value expended in bran and oil-meal
will give a much better return.   Thi
.ouiaoul lallO SUCCCSSIUl practice of
the best cultivators have abundantly proved
the importance of thorough pulverization
and of a fine mellow soil in giving heavy
crops through all seasons, and mpreventing
al way
ic disasters which to some
follow superficial culture.
I have spoken of it frequently before, but
I believe I cannot too often impress upon
my readers the loss that they constantly
suffer from the improper care of fertilizing
materials.   All through tbe country 1 have
seen this winter thousands of leads of manure in open barnyards, bleeohing and washing away.   By the timo it is hauled out in
the spring, it will have at the outside not
more than fifty per cent, of its original value.
If the manure is to be withheld from the
fields until spring, the only sensible way is
to keep it under cover, and then it must be
kept slightly damp, and turned frequently
to prevent burning and the escape of the
ammonia, one of its most valuable qualities.
Where there is not room to store the manure and shelter it, it should be hauled out
upon tbe fields and spread aa fast as made.
This plan has the added recommendation of
saving  labor,  and freeing you from this
work in spring, when you can find plenty
of employment at other duties.   If plenty
of absorbents and bedding are used, so as to
prevent the escape both of liquids aud ammonia, there is not much objection to leaving the manure in the stable until a load
has accumulated,   It is not a good plan,
however, to allow the horses and cattle to
stand upon it, or foul feet may result.

Guernsey Cattle-
An experienced dairyman writes that the
Guernseya are cattle that have contributed
as largely toward  improving  our  native
breeds as any which Europe haa sent across
the ocean.   The fame of this breed may not
be so generally known as either the Jerseys,
Holstein-FrieBians or Ayrshires, but  the
average worth of the individual animala of
this breed must make them stand foremoat
among the improved cattle of our country.
The Guernsey is a great butter-maker, and
the blood from these pure-bred animals can
be found in many of the good dairy animals
upon our progreaaive farms,   As individual
butter-makers this breed has never been
widely published, and wonderful feats of
single cows have not been recorded in order
to raise the value of a whole breed.   Frequently there are exceptional animals among
the other breeds which produce a startling
amount of butter, but it is doubtful if this
is of any real value to the  farmer.   The
prices of such animals are way above anything which the average dairyman car afford to pay, and it is alao a question whether
the rest of the breed is helped by these few
exceptions.   They are rather abnormal exceptions, and in the eyes of many it injures
the standing of those which are normal producers.   Reading of the wonderful records
of a few Jerseys, the purchaser naturally
expects similar astounding results from his
lesa expensive animal, and the result is he
is generally disappointed.
The average of the Guernseys ia good.
Aa a race of special butter-makersall of the
registered animals stand high, and a few do
not go above the average to astonish the
world. They form the backbone of most of
our large dairies, They are good working
and profitable animala, yielding good work
the year round. They are not owned by
fancy brcederaand societies who are simply
desirous of pushing their price up by pub

The  detonator  building  was   literally
blown to atoms, and nothing now remains
of it but a mass of ruins.   Nobody seemed
lo know how many people were in the building ut the time of the accident, and it was
not until William Burke, who was blown
through the door, and who was the only
one who got out of the building alive, wis
brought to consciousness, that the real state
of the case was known.   The first sight
that rewarded the work of the searches was
a headless trunk.   The right leg hud been
wrenched ruggedly from the body. Further
aeirch revealed the head, horribly distorted, some yards away, and iu a different di
rection was found the leg.   This body was
afterwards identified as  that  of  James
KenniB, of Montreal, a youth of 17.   William Gunn, of North Matsonneuve, waa also
killed:   He was not mangled like Kearns,
but when the rescuing party reached him he
was stone dead.   John Ourren,  foreman,
of thia department, was in the building at
tbe time  of   the  explosion.   The unfortunate man was absolutely blown iuto unrecognizable atoms.   He  leaves  a young
wife, to whom he was only married last
Thursday, she, formerly Miss Sutherland,
having came out from England to  marry
him the week previous,   William Burke,
the only occupant now alive, is very badly
injured, but the doctors say that he may
recover.   Dr. Mayrand, of St. Andrew's,
held an inquest and a vetdict of accidental
death was returned.

The Baby's Feet.
" How shall we shoe the baby?"   is a
question which naturally arises as soon as
he puts on stockings.   The plan generally
.  pursued is to place on the baby's foot a stiff-
lishing their' wonderfui'reiVords.^ior this soled little shoe, probably incorrect in shape,
reason the Guernsey breed is probably bet-   ,ho��gh of pretty material and finish.   In
ter suited to dairy purposes than any other  *ilc"  shoes he  begins his struggle  for a
imported from Europe.   The breed come.,  '"I0l'ing in   life, which he finally gams,
from the Channel Islands, where so many of  though not as soon as he  would  had his
our famous breeds originated, and they have
been bred there for a time longer than man
can remember, simply for butter-making.
The milk and cream that they produce are
wonderfully yellow and rich, and the butter
very seldom needs artificial coloring at any
season of the year,   The animals are generally larger than the Jersey or Ayrshire, and
very gentle in disposition.   They demand
fair grass for their best efforts, but they are
not as dainty as the Jersey.   This breed
has never been bred for the color,
    .���. v..u i.u.ui, ao most
io out ot doors,is wast- j of the other breeds, and their owners have
weather and  rapidly I simply tried to develop the points in good
butter-making, allowing nature to takecare
of the color of the hair. A fine, pure bred
herd will produce good quantities of butter,
every pound of which will often sell for 50
cents. It ia of superior taste, flavor and
color, and when a market for it is once established it is an easy matter to get such
prices for it summer and winter. The chief
merit of the Guernseys is that they can be
judged as flocks and herds, and not aa individual animals. A good herd ahows that
the average is high, and it is this which is bo
essential to a dairyman. Individual animals
do not count so much aa the high average
of the whole herd.

A pretty and sensible fashion which has
come up during the past few years is the
use of the moccasin as a first shoe. These
are made of chamois, felt or kid bound with
bright ribbons or braid and ornamented
with fancy stitches iu any way that taste
may suggest. They are best if made to lace
well above the ankle, as tbey keep in place
better than if cut low. This footgear is
warm and very pretty and does not cramp
the toes or interfere with baby's first efforts
to crawl or walk, The only serious objection to moccasins is the difficulty of keeping them on the feet of an active child after
he begins to crawl, and this in time leads the
mothers to discard them in favor of the shoe,
faulty as it is.
The sole of a baby's hare foot is not unlike
a wedge in shape, the broad part being at
the toes, while the shoe meant for his use
is often either narrower at the toes than at
the heel or else of about equal width. The
perfect shoe has not yet been evolved for
either infants or adults, notwithstanding
advertisements to the contrary, hut there
are degrees even of badness,
The ideal shoe should conform as nearly
as possible to the shape of the foot and be
neither too loose nor too tight. In particular
it should be amply wide across the great-
toe joint and allow the toes room to spread
out instead of bomg pressed tightly together.
Mothers should see that tho baby's shoe is
correct in this respect and that it is also
long enough to extend slightly beyond the
toes in order toollow freedom of motion ami
room for growth.
Having secured these essential points she
can probably do littlo toward attaining the
perfect shoe until tho shoemaker has reformed his views regarding the shape of a
baby's foot.
The1'Phonophore Teleirraph,''
To be told that a telegraph wire which is
busily transmitting a long message can at
the same time be made to convey half a dozen other messages in opposite directions
sounds like a fairy tale; but that the thing
can be done, and is daily being done, is attested upon the most respectable scientific
authority.   The discovery which renders
these aatonishiiigresults possible isduetoM:
C. Langdon-Davies, who has for some years
been engaged in reudering it practically
workable, and in adapting it alike to telephonic and telegraphic use.   It is difficult
to convey to the lay mind an accurate comprehension of a process so exceedingly technical ; but it may briefly be  said that Mr.
Langdon-Davies in the " Phonophorc" utilizes, not the electric current, but the noises
caused by induction.   The signals are transmitted by a series of induced electric impulses, and the succeaa of the system is found
in the ability of the inductive force to pass
through insulations which electric current
can not penetrate.   A wire may be blown
down and in contact with the earth, yet, so
long as it is not broken, it will carry a pho-
nophoric   message.     By   means   of   the
phonophore mesaages can be  transmitted
with extraordinary rapidity, and  there is
practically no limit to the number of telegrams that may be sent simultaneously
upon the same wire.   And, aa we have hinted, Mr. Langdon-Daviea'aystem is as useful
telephonically aa it is telegraphically.   A
wire which is conveying electric signals can
at the same time be used for telephonic conversation without either the message or the
conversation suffering in the  least.   For
aome considerable time past experiments in
both directions have been proceeding, with
most gratifying results, which arc vouched
for by such high authorities as Prof. Sylvan-
us Thompson, Conrad Cooke and Latimer
Clark.   Three of the principal railway companies have already  adopted the phonophore; audit must be obvious even to thc
unscientific mind, that phonophorio telegraphy and telephony, in so vastly increasing the electrician's power over the wirea,
has before it a very great  future.   The
phonophore, indeed, increases almost to in
Unity the number of words that can  be
transmitted in a given time.   It is obvious,
therefore, that it offers great possibilities in
the way of cheapening the cost of telegrams.
So long as the number of words that could
be carried by a wire in an hour was rigidly
limited, it was hopeless to look for any substantial reduction in tbe cost of telegraphing; but the phonophore at once increaBCB
the capacity and the speed of every wire to
which it may be fitted.

Queer Facts About a Watch.
Open your watch and look at the little
wheels, springs and screws, each an indispensable part of the whole wonderful machine.   Notice the busy little balance wheel
aa it flies to and fro unceasingly, day and
night, year in and year out.   This wonderful little machine is the result of hundreds
of yeara of study and  experiment.   The
watch carried by the average man ia com-
poaed of ninety-eight pieces and its manufacture embraces more than 2,000 distinct
and separate operations. Some of the smallest screws are so minute that the unaided
eyes can not distineuish them from steel filings or apecka of dirt.   Under a powerful
magnifying glasa a perfect screw is revealed.
The slit iu thc head is 2-lOOOths of an inch
wide.   It takes 308,000 of these screws to
weigh a pound,and a pound is worth $1,585.
The hair-spring is a strip of the finest steel
about 9J inches long, MOOth inch wide and
27*10,OOOths inch thick.   It is coiled up in
spiral form and finely tempered.   The process of tempering these springs waa long
held as a secret by the few fortunate ones
posiessing it, and even now is not generally
known.    I'heir manufacture requires great
skill and care.   The strip ia gauged to 20-
lOOOths of an inch,but no measuring instrument has as yet been devised capable of fine
enoughgaugingnf the itnpwhat the strength
of the finiahedspring will be. A 20-1000th part
of an inch difference in the thickness of the
strip makes a difference in the running of a
watch of about six minutes per hour.
The value of these aprings, when finished
and placed iu watches, is enormous in proportion Ui tho material from which they are
made. A comparison will give a good idea,
A ton of steel made up into hair-springs
when in watches is worth more than twelve
and one-half times the value of the same
weight of pure gold. Hair-spring wire
weighs one-twentieth of a grain to the inch.
One mile of wire weighs less than half a
pound. The balance gives five vibrations

A few miles down tho river tho rain
ceased, but tbe fog rolling half-way
np tho mountains prevented anything
like an extended view. Nevertheless
the enjoymonts woro numerous nnd
varied, and everybody   on   board
seemed to participate.   Good music
���was provided, and dancing was indulged in by tho yonng people.
���When the stoamor left tho river for
the lake the weather brightened, and
by tbe time Nakusp was reached, at
10.30, the day gavo promise of being
fine.   On landing, many of the excursionists with tbeir baskets betook
themselves to the woods aud camped
out, a few rambled over the new
townsite to seloot a lot, whilo tho
majority gathered on tbo cleared
level spot   (Broadway,   the  main
artery of tho town) whore tho sports
were being hold.  Bolow we give the
results np to 12.20, when an adjournment was mado to the Nakusp Houso

It waR a grand pull, and for nearly .
15 minutes the decision limig in the j
balanco, bnt inch by inch tho Nakusp |
inon gathered in the rope uutil a j
final tug curried the ribbon over the
line, and  Nakusp  hurrahed itself I
hoarse over its first victory.    Bat
this shouting was dry work, aud Mr.
Thomas's barroom, which was close j
by, was soon besieged by contestants
and non-contestants alike, each ami j
all eager to celebrate the victory so
hardly won.   At this juncture, jnst
when the greasy pole ci   I
menced, the Lytton began to whistle ���

barking two prospectors  fr
Lardeau who were waiting For tin-
regular steamer, and a hearty "three
cheers for Thomson," llm boat is
once more ploughing  the mnddy
wafers of the Columbia homeward
bound.   But it was destined that sho
was not to reaoh homo that night.
Five or six miles above Hall's Landing, in the still waters under the lee
of a largo island, with tho might}
enrront rushing down on cither side
scarcely a hundred yards away, our
bout suddenly  became quiet,  the
engines ceased their pulsations, and
the vessel began poking her nose into
tho bushes as if sin- would prefer to
cross the island  instead  of going
around it. But for tho tbiokly growing trees this would not have beon
an impossibility, as lhe wator up
poared to be two or three feel deep
as fur ns could bo seen iulo the donse
undergrowth.   A boat was then lov* -
ered, and soon the Lytlou was made
fast lo a tree by a stout hawser,   I ho
news very quickly spread amongst
tbo company that we were "tied up
for the night." Something had gone
wrong wiih one of the boiler tubes,
und tho fire would huvo to bo taken
ont, to remedy tho defect.   Daylight
next morning would probably see us
moving.   This was ''nuts1' for tho
youngsters, who determined ou having a real good timo, and that their
expectations  wero  amply realised
everyone who was thero can testify.
It was now six o'clock, and the supper bell clanged a joyful tuno to
many unromantio souls who did not
allow (ho weird, wild picturesque-
ness of tho situation to interfere with
tho sornmptious appetites lliey hud
brought along with them all the way
from Nakusp, One of tho prospeotors
camo out after supper with a smiling
fnco because his vest fitted him at
last.   Ho said ho had not eaten a
square meal for two weeks.   Two of
the boys beeamo so ambitions after
supper that they set out in the flat-
bottomed boat  belonging  to   the
steamer for a row around the island.
They left tho Lytton followed by the
admiring gaze of tbe wholo company,
Joe Whyto handling the oars and
John Abrahamson steering. Boating
at once became tho rage, and several
olaimants were eagerly waiting for
tho other boat to bo launched, but
the captain stated that it leaked like
a basket and would fill in a very
short lime, so tho idea was givon up,
Moanwhilo the heroes in tho flat-
bottom bad drifted out iuto tho current, and, in spite of their best endeavors to pull up stream, thoy were
carried down.  Gradually they faded
from view in the distanco; the i-;i
seen of them being the white ef their!
shirtsleeves, for llu-v had taken offi
their coats in their frantio efforts

mosl of tbe excursionists showed tho
soars of battle in tbe morning, one
of tbem  whose '-yes   were nwollon
almost close remarking that "the
mo qnitoes at that  particular spot
were as big ns donkeys."   Taking

Only one incident marred tho pleasure of the whole trip,   Six of our
Chinese citizens bought tloketa and
went to Nakusp und back.   At the
second or third supper bell tlm wholo
six walked into the dining saloon,
bun-: up tbeir lints and sat down to
table,   Bnt, thi   wholo six were at
ouce ordered out aguin by an oilieor
of Ihe ship.   The order was obeyed,
but the Chinamen were so chagiined
that, they would not havo any supper
ai all, and vow that lliey will go on
no moro excursions,   Whatever tho
rules ou the steamer may be they
should have be, n suspended for that
dny, as the Chinese (all of thorn intelligent men nnd Christians) had
paia tho same furo as the other ox-
oursionists, ami wore entitled to tbo
privileges, oven if not treated with
the snme courtesy.   Tho organizers
of tbe trip (Messrs. Fraser nud Northey) desire to thank thoso who attended, but ut lho 6ftme timo they
must state that had thoso pooplo wbo
woro so clamorous to have tho excursion tako placo not gono bnek on
tbeir promises the affair would havo
been a financial success.   They hopo
tho organizers of the next excursion
from Revelstoke will understand tho
