Kevelstoke And Arrow Lake
Track Laid to the tlleciUe-
waet River.
iWklnying on the Bevelstoke and
Arrow Lake Railway commenced
tbis week and the rails now reach as
far an the Illecillewaet Hirer, abont
n mile and a half from the station.
The bridge has not yet been commenced, but timber is on the spot
for the purpose, It is supposed the
(tincture will rest on piles, witb an
ami* over tho deeper portion, .Bo-
yond the river gracing has beeu
done in places for about 12 miles
down, at wbieh poiut it is proposed
to terminate the rails this fall, Tbe
line prevents little difficulty of construction, there being no cuttings and
the embankment throngh the low
ground in the vicinity of the river
scarcely averages sis feet in height.
The traok is well laid, the ties being
exceptionally good, and have been
ant at the sawmill, Abont a mile beyond tho Illecillewaet there is a
nasty piece of ground abont a quarter of a mile in length yet to be overcome, tt is full of stumps and is
abont 3 feet above the grade, so that
they will have to be upm-el and
tbe ground lowered that distance.
The work has been let in small contracts of about 20 yards to two or
three men, who, we understand, can
mnko abont 80 cents an hour. With
the rails laid as far as tho river tbe
material for the bridgo can easily be
taken to the spot, and we lmvo no
doubt that another month will seo
the completion of at least the first
ten miles,
New Streets and New Buildings
" Cleanliness is next to godliness."
Although dullness and depression is
the general rule throughout tho whole
world, Rovelstoke just now shows up !
pretty lively.   The hotels are full, and I
business at "the stores is brisk.   0. k H. |
Lewis, bakers, are kept hard at work all
the time, baking four batches a day. j
Large numbers of men aro arriving in
town, and prospectors aro beginning to
oome in from tho  mountains.    The
Bevelstoke and Arrow Lako Kail way
nnd tho opening up of new streets give
employment to ninny, but it would not
bo wise to nonoc hero to look for work,
ai these works will ouin'i to a atop in a
week or two.
r.evelstoko Station is rapidly assuming tho appearanoe of a thriving town.
Mackenzie Avo., a very fine thoroughfare, ia beiug built ou both sides, and it
will bo snfe to prophecy that inside of
two years it will equal tiie best street of
any town in tho Interior. The new
Catholic Church is on tbo west side,
and i.i a plain modest building about 52
ft, by 22ft, A now house for Mr. Currie
has jnst been completed opposite the
drug store. A new barber and a now
shop are located on the north side of the
drug store, and Mr. R. Howson has
added 20 feet to the length of his warehouse. There are soveral other improvements to be noted, but our limited
space prevents touching on tbem now,
Tho opening of Douglas Street is the
outcome of tho energetic action of two
or three citizens, who obtained sub*
sorptions from residents in the lower
town to the extent of $250. The assistance of tho Government had been
promised as long ago as when tbe Premier paid us a visit, and as the work will
cost about |500 the Government will
contribute a similar sum to what the
citizens have raised. Tbe only condition
attached to the gift is that the street
sball connect with the cemetery road on
the north side of tbe railway track. But
whether $500 will be enough to carry
ont such a large undertaking remains
to be seen. Clearing and cutting commenced on Tuesday at the lower end, a
little west of the blacksmith's shop.
Mr. Sam Crowl is the foreman in charge
and work is making very eatisfactory
progress. Although there are only
abont a dozen residences ott Douglas
Street as yet, it Is really the central
street of tbe townsite, and ia in a straight
line with the station road. If this town
becomes a busy thriving mining centre
���as many think it will in a year or two
���Douglas Street will bo one of the
handsomest thoroughfares in the province, and it will not be labor lost to
open it np and keep it open, There are
one or two bnsiuess men whose names
are conspicuous by their absence from
the list of subscribers, In fairness to
thoso who have subscribed we are requested to publish the list next week.
Not belonging to the class of chronic
kickers against the powers that be, we
must acknowledge tbe promptitude witb
which the Government has come to our
assistance in this much needed improvement, and have no doubt tbat it will put
a spoke in the Government wheel ut the
next election.

When Keith Atholsono loaves Lauraine
that morning ho is scarcely conscious of
what lm is doing.
And yet with hia brain whirling, with a
desperate scnso of his life's complete failure
oppressing his heart, he goes straight to
his fiancee's house and asks to see her.
.Miss Nan flies iuto the room, ns she ex-
prcssea it, " like greased lightning."
"Well, what's the matter?" olio erica.
"Has the hank broke, or has it orth failed,
or  Why, Keith " (with sudden gravity), "are yon ill?"
iier voice seams to rooall his senses. Ho
eils down ami looks sadly at the radiant
"Nan,"he aays, brokenly, "I���1 have
como to say that I have behaved to yoa
like a owl, a brute, T havo no excuse to
offer. I can only tell you the plain .ruth,
and that is "
" Stop I' alio ci kn, suddenly ; and all her
airs ami affectations eccm to fall off her,
leaving only a quiot, palofaced littlo maiden,
whose big, bright eyes are clouded and sad.
" 1 know what yon mean. Vou don't hive
me, It is not what cornea to mo, Keith,
only 1 thought 1 might help to conaolo yon,
being eo fond of you as 1 waa, for���ahs���nan
bo untiling lo you after all."
"Vmi���ymi know "stammers Keith,
"Know, of course I know," she answers,
with pretty contempt, "iloyou think 1 was
reared ia Hoslou and can't see a little bit
through a slono wall, specially when that
atone wall has some mighty big chinks to
let (hi! daylight in? Know���why, who
doesn't know that's ev.r scon you and
'my Lady Lauraine' together?"
The colour mounta to Keith's brow. "And
I have done her all this harm," he thinks.
"Don't be afraid to spoak out to me,'1
joniinties Nan. "I'm too fond of you to bo
cross, aud I know you've tried your best to
be true to me. We'd best forget that wo
over thought of being mere than friends.
Don't you trouble to explain. Ii yen hadn't
said tin's, I should have done so before it
camo to the real business. L don't want to
marry a man whose heart is set on another
woman, and youlovad hor before you know
me���didn't you';"
"Ves," he says, quickly, "Since wo wore
boy and girl together."
"And why did she jilt vou?" asks Dresden China, tranquilly. Her heart is sofull,
ami pained, and angry, that she is afraid
of betraying herself,
"She wns forced into marrying another
man during my absence," says Keith, coldly. "I was forbidden to write, and when I
trusted���well, it was hor mother���to tell
her about myself���my changed fortunes���
she never did. When 1 eame back from
.New Vork she was married,"
"If she'd been worth her salt she'd have
kept true to you," says Nan, petulantly.
"I don't believe in girls caving in, and marrying to please other people. 1 wouldn't,
net for fifty mothers, leave alono one."
".No. you aro a staunch little thing,"
says Keith, looking up at the bright mig-
noiino face; "and yen are worth a mans
wholo heart and life, Nan, and 1 feol 1 am
neither worth the offering nor tbe acceptance, I hive been a fool; but at last I Et-em
'usee my folly, audi am going lo make
one vigorous effort to conquer it, I am
going to leave England���perhaps forovor,"
"I think it is the very best thing you
can ue,'' she says, quiotly. " What
is the use ot waating your life and
eating j our heart out for a woman who ean
be nothing In you?"
"And yon will forgive me my troishery
to yourself ?" he asks.

Lady Jean is right. Koith Athelstone
has no! left England.
His passage wai taken, all his preparations made, and then the vory day before
he was to sail for tho Now World he found
himself lain prostrate by brain fever.
He was taken ill iu Liverpool, nnd his
servant, being one of that rare class who
ean givo faithful attendance, nursed him
devotedly, For weeks he lay hovering between life ami death, the strength and
vigour of the body fighting against the
ravages of mental Buffering, and the long,
painful strain on brain and heart against
which he had so long struggled. In his
delirious frenzy hia whole cry was for
Lauraine. It was pitiful to seo that strong
young manhood bowed down to a child's
weakneaa. As dependent as an infant on
the hired services which his wealth procured, but which was so different lo the
tender ministry of love and friendship.
The discreet valot at times felt inclined
to send to Lady Vavaaonr,and acquaint her
with his young mister's danger; but prudence withheld him, He-knew ahe was
married, and ho feared to draw down his
master's anger by officious interference.
At last tlie doctors gave hope, and Keith
struggled back by slow degrees into convalescence, and saw his life given back to
Ilia own keeping once more���life dull of hue
and aad enough, with all its gladness and
colour painted out by the ruthless hand of
disappointment���life for which ho was in
no way grateful to the mercy that had
spared it; but still, life that he had to accept and tako up, with all its tangled
thread- ami  broken hopes.

Men say the sins and follies of youth come

ia Andrews, tho careful and attentive, Ho
brings a letter in his hand, and lays it down
on lhc tabic by his young masters sido,
Keith turns toward Iiim, and holds out
his Ihin transparent hand for the missive,
He tears open the envelope, nnd as he looka
at the address a Hush of colour steals over
his face.
" Falcon's Chase, Brookfield Northumberland.
" .Mv ni:Ar. Atiiki.stoxh,
" We have only just heard of your
illness, and are much concerned about it,
more especially as you arc alone al an hotel,
and musl bo dependent on quito alien services. As soon as ever your health permits,
will you come to us horo and let us try to
nurse you back to health onoo more? As
the weather is so unusually mild, 1 do not
think vou will liud lhe air of Northumberland too bracing. Lauraine, of course, joins

London, and come down with you as soon
as ever your physicians givo permission for

and sympathy from all mutual friends here,

Keith leads lhe letter steadily through
to the end, and his face grows while aa tho
paper as he so roads it, But a new, storn
look comes into llis eyes, and his lips close
tight under tlicir thick moustache.
" What does it mean ?" ho thinks, as he
roads the subtle tempting, " Can Lauraine
really have had any hand in this? 1 don't
believe it. No; I will not go. Tho snare
is too plainly aet,"
And bet ore he can have, timo to idler his
mind hc asks for pen and ink, and dashes
otf a linn but courteous refusal on the plea
of his physicians ordering him to a warm
" Sho shall never have to reproach me
again if 1 can help it," he says, to himself
as exhausted with even this small exertion
he sinks back on his pillows. " Sho called

There i.s only a very small house party at
Falcon's Chase when Keith Atholstou's letter arrives, and the master of the house
reads it with clouded brow. He has insisted upon hia wife's asking Lady Jean down,
and; despite her recent bereavement, the
Lady Jeau accepts thc invitation.
She is very subdued, very mournful,
-lives a great ileal in her own rooms, and altogether affords a very unobtrusive spectacle of chastened sorrow. She is more than
ever gracious to her hostess, and dignified
to her host, and oven Lady Etywnde's observant eyes can seo nothing in any way
On the morning that Keith's lotter arrives
Lady Joan is not at the breakfast-table, and
Sir Francis is impatient to toll her tho news
���so impatient in fact, that for once he forgets the prudence she has so strictly enjoined, and sends her a note by her maid, asking
her to come into the smali study adjoining
tho library as soon as she can.
Lady Jean is annoyed at liis imprudence,
and ill no way hurries herself to suit his
wishes. When she at last enters the study
she finds Sir Francis fuming at being kept
waiting, and decidedly unamiable.
" Well, what is it'!" she asks.
Hc hands her Keith's letter, and she reads
it through. Her brows cloud ; she throwa
it aside impatiently,
"Tho young fool I"sho mutters.
Oa entering the smaller room she has
drawn the door after her, but not quite
closed it. The velvet curtains sweep
down, and no ono from tho library can seo
them, but the sound of tlieir voices is audible, It happens that Lauraine enters tho
outer room for a book, and is just taking it
down from the oase when the sound of her
own name, ultered hy Lady Jean's voice,
strikes sharply on her ear.
" Doos Lauraine know ?"
"No," answers her husband's voice. ".\s
you advised, 1 said nothing about it. Of
course, had Alholslono accepted, 1 would
lmvo told her that I had hoard of his dangerous illness, ami asked him here to set Iiim
up again."
" How exooaslvolyprovoking "'continues
Lady Joan,   "Dopondon it, Frank, this
ia a blind. Hither Keith suspects wu
know of llis lovo for your wife, or she has
boon beforehand."
" My dear Jeau I" exclaims Sir Francis
Lauraine waits to hear no more. Aston-
i ilunon'j has kept her spellbound, Now sho
turns from tho room with a sickening horriblo Bonso of shame in her heart, wiih the
blood dying tlio white faoo, with all tlie
dignity of womanhood stung nnd outraged

She kneels by her bed in au agony of
weeping. Fear, shame, rage, disgust, sweep
over her by turns. She sees the whole
plot, and her own long blindness, and yet
sho knows she is powerless to resent cither !
It her husband accuses her of loving Keith
she cannot deny it, and to explain to a mind
o coarse and base tho struggle sad the
sufferings lhat love has cost her, would only
bring down ridicule and v/iu her no belief.
She feels quite helpless. Her enemy
knows her secret, and her evil mind will
colour it nnd send it (lying abroad, and she
is powerless to resent, or to deny.
A loathing, ahoirorof herself���of them���
comes upon her. It seemed to her scarcely
possible that they could havo sunk ao low,
oould have plotted anything so evil. And
then bitter thoughts oome into her mind.
Ot what USO to try to do right, to struggle,
and sacrifice as she has dune ? Duly haa
brought to her only added shan'o, only A
crueller trial !
There is but one grain of comfort to her
now in all hor sorrow. It is that Keith has
been brave and true to his word, that for
her sake iio Inn forfeited self for once,
"Had he listened, had become, he would
have been a cowan!,' bIio says to herself, and
then the thought of his danger, his weakness, comes over her, and sho weeps wildly
and paasiouatoly in her loneliness. Sho
dares say no word of sympathy, daroishow
no sign; she, too, must, appear cold, unmoved, uncaring.
"Oh, dear Heaven!" she prays
in ber sorrow and her pain.
" Where will it eud���whore will it

She had never felt so helpless, so desperate as now.
Sao could not think of any course of
action to pursue, and yel she knew iihe
oould not overlook this outrage lo herself.
That die should havo under her roof aa
guest a woman whose position with her own
husband sho could no longer doubt, was
impossible, All her pride rose iu arms
against such a possibility, and yet beyond
all things sho dreaded to explain to Sir
Francis her reasons, and bear his hateful
taunts and sneers against herself.
"Aud I am not blameless," she moans,
pressing her hands against her hot and
throbbing temples. " What can I say for
As she kneels thero, a knock cornea at
her dour. Sho rises hurriedly, and opens
it, and confronts���her husband.
Ho comes in.   He docs not look al her.
"Lauraine," lie begins, "I just wanted to
any a word to you. 1 havo hoard sumo bad
news of young Athelstone ; 1 wanted to

lesson, and feels a littlo uncomfortable.
Lauraine lifts her head very proudly,
tier voice, as she speaks, goes through him
like the touch of ice,
" Has Lady Joan Counselled you to say

Athelstone arc really moat praiseworthy.
All the same, you have had his answer to
your disinterested invitation. It is scarcely necessary for mc lo repeal it, oven if I
Ho looks at her with a dark Hush mounting to his brow, but llinohes beneath the
steady challenge of licr eyea.
"What do you moan?" ho demands,
hoarsely ami sullenly,
" I was iu the libiary half-an-hoiir ago,"
says Lauraine, calmly. " Only for a moment���do not fancy 1 stooped to intentional oaves-drooping. 1 think it is for you to
say whether Lady Jeau Salomans���or���I
leave your house immediately.
There is a momont s silence, then Sir
Francis turns and confronts her with a faco
of Billion rnge.
" What lho devil do you mean ?" he says,
fiercely.   " Are you going to insult her?"
" I think tho insult is to mc," says
Lauraine, very quiotly, "I havo been
blind a long time; bul if you can discuss
my actions with another woman in the
familiar manner I heard you discussing
thom with Lady Jean, it says enough to
convince mo of the terms of your acquaintanceship. 1 have no desire for any open
scandal. Yoa can explain tn yoar friend
that her presenco hero is no longer desirable,
That is all."
"All I" scoffs Sir Franois, savagely. "And
do you suppose I'm going lobe dictated to by you as lo who stops in my house,
or uol? A nice model of virtue and propriety
you are, to preach toother Womon I A
beggar, who married mc for my money,
just as one of the vilest women would have
done���a w-unan who haa been carrying on a
secret intrigue of her own for years, only
ia too devilish clover to be found out."
Lauraine stops him wilb a gesture of in-
finite scorn.
" What you say is untrue, Thai I married you without any pretence of lovo you
know. 1 made no secret of it, and my
mother and yourself both tried your utmost to persuade me into il. But since [
marriod you, I have at least been true.
Secret intrigues, as you call them, aro for
womon of Lady Jean's stamp, not mine."
" And what aboul your own friendship
for Keith Athelstone '.'"sneers her husband,
" Do you deny he is your lover?''
" No," answers Lauraine, turning very
while, but still keeping her voice steady m
Its oold contempt. " But his lovo is worthy
of the name ; It is nol a base, degrading

holding ono face lo tho world, has another

light comes into her eyes. "Why do I

he has not accepted, this invitation is to ine
no proof of what you call virtue, Perhaps

All tha blood seems to tush Irom
Lauraine's hoart to her face at this
insult. She confronts him with a
passion of indignation. " How dare
you ?" she erics; and then something
seems to riso in her throit and choke
her. The utter futility of words���the sense
ol her own imprudence, confront her like a
barrier to the belief she would invoke.
He sees he has stung her now almost beyond endurance, and the knowledge rouses
all that is worst in him, and prompts but
further outrage.

And lie leaves the room with a brutal
Lauraine stands there as if turned to
ntono. For the first timo she feels how
powerless she is���how helpless is any woman when the man who has sworn to protect
and honour her, turns round ou Iier and insults her with tho very weakness he is
bound to respect.
She knows her husband is not faithful���
that tho very presence of this woman beneath her roof is an outrage to all decency
ami morality, and yd if she opposes that
presence, she herself is threatened with a
life-long injury ; nay, more, Keith will be
dragged in to shield the sharer of this
flagrant guilt, which is before her very eyes,
and whicli she seems powerless to resent.
She grows desperate as she thinks of it���
aa she looks at the case from every side, and
yet sees uo way of escape or justice.
Of what use is innocence to a woman
whose name is before the world, and dragged through the mire of public inquiry ? A

A recent London cable despatch says :���
"The Chronicle of this morning,commenting on tiie appointment of the Royal
Agricultural Commission, saya that Canada 15s. a ml
is one of the most conspicuous examples of
Slate education to the farmer. Certain il
is that similiar instructions to the farmers
of England would be greedily rooeivod."
It must heartily gratify every Canadian
who thinks well of his country, to see its
farming methods thus ieengnize.1 at the
hoart of the Hrilish empire, In the last
issue of the Free Press wc quotod from the
North British Agriculturist strong testimony to the excellence of Canadian cheese
making, Iiy following the inscruotions
whicli thoy recoivo from Canadians, the
Scotch cheese makers have carried off tho
leading prizes in the Cheddar classes from
the best Knglish makers, This has given
alarm to lhc latter, who have Induced the
Dairy Association of Kn.d.ind to set the
Scotch cheese in a special class, so as to
prevent tho prejudice in favor of Somersetshire cheddars from being completely swept
Nowcomes the testimony ofa leading
London journal that Canada is regarded as
"one of the most conspicuous examples of
State education to the farmer," in a general sense. It is not to the (iorni'n system,
excellent and progressive as itis, or thc
American, which is acknowledged lo be in
the advance guard, but to lhe methods
which have been pursued in Canada, that
tlio newly-appointed Royal Agricultural
Commission will turn for direction in the
enquiry that is to be made for the betterment of British agriculture. The journal
in question tells us that "similar instructions to tho farmers of England would be
greedily received."
Thero could certainly be  no more  complete vindication of the measures which have
been carried out by the  representative of
this city, Sir John Curling, under sanction
of tlio Dominion Parliament, than what is
hore set forth.   One of the first  tasks to
which he addressed himself ou being chosen
Minister  of Agriculture  in the  Sandfield
Macdonald Administration of Ontario, was
that of establishing a Model Farm for the
furtherance of all sorts of experiments for
the benefit  of agriculture.   Recognizing
that Ontario was par Excellence a farming
country, that it waa upon the   products
of the soil that   the   people   must chiefly rely for prosperity, Sir John   Curling
purchased   a  farm at   Mimico  for  the
above purpose; but the defeat of the Local
Govornment   in   1871  deprived   him   of
the opportunity to oarry nut his well matured ideas.   On being appointed Minister
of Agriculture at Ottawa, however, he took
up the schemo where he had loft it off at
Toronto, but upon a morc extended scale,
comprehending the requirements of  the
whole Dominion. It waa with no little difficulty thai Sir John Curling was able lo persuade hia colleagues as to thc feasibility and
utility of an Kxperinental Farm system for
the whole of Canada.   To somo of thorn it
seemed a wild proposal, over costly and impractical, liut upon Sir .lolm's positive and
persistent pledge that he would make it of
great and lasting benefit to the poople, ho
was given power to proceed,with the result
that the work as carried on under his direction, as Minister, received encomiums
from practical men among the Opposition
in  Parliament, and has proven one the
strongest bulwarks ofthe Govornment in
the farming constituencies.   Not only so,
but of the large sums that were expended
for Experimental Farm purposes, e'therat
Ottawa or ill the Provinces, no charge has
ever been made that any part of the public
money was expended either extravagantly
or corruptly.   All tho outlays made have
stood the test of the closest investigation.
All the work that has been attempted,
cither at the Experimental Kami at Ottawa,
or the Provincial stations, has been upon
the mo3t direct and practical lines.   In the
matter of cheese-milking, for example, Ontario has for many years occupied a high
position.   Il was the aim of the Dominion
Department that all sections of Canada
should share in this advantage.   Wherever
the business was lacking, as in Quebec, the
attempt was made to improve it, and the
result waa that Quebec cheese last year
stood on a par al the Industrial Exhibition
wiih the best products of Ontario,  So high
indeed is the character of Canadian cheese
making that when the system pursued in
Canada was introduced into Scotland, the
Scotch cheeso began to take the palm from
the best English makers.
Facts of this kind have so impressed the
minds of Englishmen that they have resolved to determine by means of a Itoynl
Commission of Inquiry, how their own
system nf agriculture might Iii! Improved
on the same lines.   The  Daily Chronicle

From the Honolulu "Bulletin1' it is learned that a leper bandit named Koolau, wanted by the police ot Honolulu, had bidden
defiance to them and had taken to the
mountains, with his wife and child. He is
responsible for the death of four persons.
When chased by Sheriff Stolz, the brigand
of Kalalau shot him, An expedition was
then sent from Honolulu, and it reached
Kalalau early in July. It was a disastrous
After a good deal of scouting had been
done and reports more or less credible had
been received at Camp Dole in Kalalau
valley, Major J. \V. Pratt waa sent with a
detail of fifteen soldiers on the 1th of July
to scour the head of the valley in quest of
Koolau and his family. They left camp at
.8 o'clock in the morning, and alter getting

The Commission Man Tells Ihe Whole
About a week ago there arrived in Toronto a mysterious stranger of a Jewish
oast of countenance, whoseemed very anxious to keep secret his origin and his object
in visiting that city. He secured lodgings
in a house on Pearl street, and after making numerous enquiries regarding local
pawnbrokers and second-hand jewellers,
he confided to his landlord, Mr. Moses
Breslov, that he was none other than an
escaped .Siberian exile, and that he had in
his possession .')."> pounds of solid gold,
worth in the neighborhood of $8,000, which
he had managed to collect in the Russian
mines, and to smuggle out of the country.
With the aid of his host the stranger disposed of the precious metal to a local
jeweller for ��3,100. Now the jeweller
says that the " gold" is nothing but brass,
and seems to be much incensed over the
way he has beou dealt with. The transaction was put through yesterday morning,
and since then thc " exile" has disappear
ed,   At least sue'
by  a    representative   of   The   Empire j
The detective department has been informed of the facts of the case, and efforts arc
being made to locate the stranger.
This is the story as told by Mosesliroslov,
11(1 Pearl street :
On Tuesday last Mr.Siim Levl,I0G MoNab
street, Hamilton, and the mysterious
stranger arrived in Toronto and enquired at
Vineberg's store, York street, for a hoarding place. They were directed to .Mr.Bres-
lov's where accommodation was secured for
the stranger, who said ho was going to peddle. During the evening the iodger asked
a great many questions about the rich Jews
who were engaged in business as jewellers
and pawnbrokers, and at length revealed to
Breslov that he was an escaped Russian exile from the Siberian mines and that ho had
managed to get 35 pounds of gold out of
Siberia with him, He waj very anxious to
sell the precious metal, which, lie said,
would have to be done with great secrecy.
He persuaded Mr. Breslov to see Mr. Gar-
tinkle, a Vork street pawnbroker, about
buying the stuff, but that gentleman refused to have anything to do with it. Then
Mr. Rosenthal,the Vork street money lender, was seen, He said he was willing to
buy, but that the metal must be sold very
cheap. Mr. Breslov brought the proposed
buyer and seller together, and finally had
the satisfaction of being told that a deal
was likely to be arranged at the rate of
S100 per poutid. Rosenthal told Mr. Breslov that he had sent his son to Hamilton to
get a sample of the metal to test. Rosenthal then promised Mr. Breslov S100 if the

" Who is the mysterious Siberian exile?" In
the meantime, Mr. Breslov is feeling very
bad over not getting the commission which
he strove so hard to earn from both parties.
a camp that,
deserted in haste. From the marks left it
appeared the oamp had been occupied by
eight or nine persons. Food supplies and a
coat with two cartridges in a pocket were
among the remains left by the recent campers.
Major Pratt and the part of tho band
with him were notified of the discovery and
repaired to the spot, The Major surmised
that Kooliiu and his party had retreated
further up the mountain. Under his direotion the baud proceeded to look for the
upward trail. They found and followed it
until it took them to 11 height of 500 feet,
where it came to a precipitous cliff. Anderson and Kvanston responded to Major
Pratt's call for volunteers to follow th
trail out. They were followed by Miller
and another soldier.
Anderson reached the top of the cliff and
shouted, "Boys, I have got the trail,"
His words were instantly followed by two
shots. Anderson fell dead. Those next
him tumbled in retreat for cover on top of
those below them. Johnson fell from the
face of the cliff and rolled down the ridge
a great height, losing his gun and cap and
receiving severe bruises. He was able,
however, to rejoin his comrades on the way
back to camp. They stopped at the deserted camp of the fugitives, and Pratt sent
Corporal McAulton back to headquarters
for reinforcements.
Wednesday, July 5, Mr. C. B. Reynolds,
officer of the Board of Health, and Capt.
Larsen, with some natives, w-nt to recover

Whenever one of the now famous British
regiments, the gallant Forty-twa, for example, has been sent out to fight it has
come home, perhaps short a tew messmates,
but with a big halo of glory around it which
will last probably as long as will the nation
fer which it fought. And when detachments from six of these famous regiments
go out on parade in a corner of her Majesty's
biggest colony, it is perfectly natural and
quite proper that the colonists should become excited. The imagination of the loyal
Briton is touched and thrilled when he remembers that the regiments represented in
Toronto recently have helped to win and
defend a large part of creation for the
" Widow at Windsor," and that thoy have
salted down their winnings with their bones.
Volumes might be written about tho records of each of them, about the gallantry
of the kilted Highlander, about the bravery
of the armoured guardsman, and about the
calm courage and brilliant heroism of the
fighting son of Erin ; but instead of volumes a brief sketch of the seven regiments
may be appropriate,
BRITISH av.u.nv.
First of the British cavalry, and so first
of any cavalry in the world, are the Household Troops, consisting of the Ist and '2nd
Life Guards and the Royul Horso Guards,
and their origin emphasizes their intimate
connection with the sovereign. Both Life
Guards and Horse Guards were raised in
1061, the former from the scattered regiments of the Cavaliers, who had fought for
Charles I., and the latter from a selection
of Colonel Upton Cook's regiment of horse,
which served under the protectorate. It is
probably the only cavalry regiment that
can trace iis Unease to the Parliamentry
army. In 17S8 the regiment was remodeled. An appellation whicli was given them,
dating from the Burdett riots, was the
"Piccadilly Butchers," a sort of nickname,
which found its employers in the classes to
whom police are "minions of the law" and
magistrates are "salaried hirelings." The
state officials Gold Stick and Silver Stick
are always officers, colonel aud lieutenant-
colonel, ofthe Household Troops, chosen in
rotation. This privilege as concerns the
Life Guards dates from the Rye House
Plot, when, amidst all the treachery whioh
spread far and wide, it transpired that no
attempt had been even thought to be made
to tamper with the Life Guards, as tlieir
loyalty was too well recognized. The
regiment bears as a crest the Royal Arms,
and on the standard is inscribed Dettingen,
Peninsula, Waterloo, Egypt, 1882, Tel-el-
is the Sphinx, superscribed " Egypt,"
nml the names of the following battles :���
Seringapatam, Talavera, Bussco, Fuentes
d'Onor, Ciiida.l Rodrigo, Badajos, Salamanca, Vittoria, Nivelle, Orthes, Toulouse,
Peninsula, Alma, Inkerman, Sebastopool,
Central India, South Africa 1887-8-9. The
historical records teem with instances of
individual valour displayed by the Rangers
of Counaught.
The foot complement of the Household
Troops consists'of the Grenadier Guards,
who are first in order of precedence,  the
Coldstream Guards, and the Scots Guards.
The very name of the Grenadier Guards
suggests in an exceptional manner visions
of the proudest victories and of the dourest
struggles that have befallen British arms.
They bear as their regimental badge a grenade, and on  their colours are the names
Blenheim,  Ramilies, Oudenarde, Malpla-
quet, Dettingen, Lincelles, Corunna, Bar-
ossa Peninsula, Waterloo, Alma,Inkerman,
Sehastopol,    Egypt,   1882,   Tel-el-Kebir,
Suakim 1885.   They  were originated by
Charles II. in lli.'.ti, and were given  the
name of Grenadiers in 1815, in recognition
nf their having defeated the French Grenadier Guards at Waterloo,   It was there
thatthe Imperial Guard of France, led by
Ney, advanced to within fifty yaws of the
place where the Guards lay,when the Duke
of Wellington gavo the memorable order,
the purport, if not the precise words, of
which was, "Up Guards, und at them.'
As the words of command were given they
sprang to th^ir feot and stood, iu a line four
deep, an impenetrable barrier to the legions
of the Emperor.   A tremendous volley carried confusion into the ranks of the Imperial Guard, and then Lord Saltoun, receiving orders   from the Duke,   called out,
"Now's the time, my boys."  There was a
ringing cheer, a magnificent charge which
swept all before it, aud the defeat of Napoleon's last mighty effort was assured. The
Grenadiers were represented in Canada at
the time of the rising of 183842,
same time that Sam Levi, who had brought
the stranger from Hamilton,
WAS to ,: ET ��5
from "foolau'S refuge ot rocks. The only
clothing on the body was the trousers, and
the finding of his shirt near the spot where
he fell indicated he had torn it off when he
discovered his death wound. He had tried
to stanch the How of blood with ferns,
which wcre found adhering to the wound.
His cartridge belt and bayonet were found
fifty feet from whore the body lay.
Larsen then placed his men in position to
and two gold watches. Mr. Breslov has been
sick for some time, and was in debt, so he
began to exert himself to have the transaction carried through. When young Rosenthal had returned from Hamilton the
father informed Mr. Breslov that the gold
was good, and that he was going to buy it. | |jre volleys at the place where Koolau was

The Flight of tha Earth-
One of the most difficult, and at the same
time interesting, questions that astronomers
have to solve is that of the direction and
velocity of the flight of the solar system
through space. We ordinarily speak of the
earth going round the sun as it that revolution were performed year after year in the
same path, the sun standing still while the
earth moves. But as a matter of fact, the
sun moves as well as the earth.
Our planet goes round the situ from east
to west, but at the same time, the sun
moves from south to north. The earth,
therefore, is really travelling, not in a
beaten circle, but iu a spiral line which is
gradually carrying it toward certain stars
in the northern sky. And of course, all the
other planets also travel in spirals, going at
the same time round and round the sun,
and with the sun toward the north.
The simplest proof that this motion of the
solar system really exists is the fact that in
that part of the sky toward whicli we are
going the stars are observed to he slowly
moving apart, while in the opposite part of
the heavens they are drawing together. A
little rellection shows thai this is a necessary result of such a motion of the solar
system as we have described,
But now comes  the  difficulty.   On account of the immense distance of the stars,
the apparent motions exhibited by them as
j a result of our varying distance from them
are exceedingly slight; far too slight to be
Bpllclnt lbe Wires,
It has always been a matter of speculation
and wonder to most people as to how a marine cubleonce broken in midocean is ever got
together agaiu. The explanation is this:
First, it must be known that the cable practically rests everywhere on the bottom of
the sea. Of course there are places where
sudden deep places coming between shallow
ones will cause the cable to make a span as
over a ravine or gully. In other places the
ocean is so deep that the cable finds its
specific gravity some where in mi.hvater, so
to speak. In that case it restsquiteasfiimly
as if it were on solid ground.
When a break occurs the first step of
course is to accurately locate its position. A
conductor such as a cable offers a certain
amount of obstruction or "resistance" to the
passage of an electric current. Apparatus
has beeu devised for the measuring of this
"resistance." The unit of resistance ia
called au ohm. Tlie resistance of the average
cable is, roughly speaking, three ohms per
nautical mile. Resistance practically ceases
at the point where the conducterr make considerable contact with the water. Therefore
if when measuring to locate a break it be
found that the measuring apparatus indicates
a resistance of 900 ohms, the position of the
'ault will be known to be 300 miles from
With this information the captain of the
repairing ship is able   to determine by his
charts ol the course of the cable the latitude
and longitude of the spot where the break
occurred, and can proceed with certainty
to effect (he repair.    When the approximate neighborhood of the break is reached a
grapnel is dropped overboard  and the vessel steams slowly in a course at right angles
to the run of the cable.  On the deck of the
ship there is a machine called a dynometer,
which, as its name implies, is used to measure resistance.   The    rope  securing  the
grapnel passes under  this.   If  the dynometer records a steady increase of strain it
indicates that the grapnel  has caught the

varies from nothing to tons and from tons
to nothing again, it is known that the grapnel is only engaging rocks or other projections of an uneven bottom.   It is frequently necessary to drag over such grouud several limes before the cable can be secured.
Having secured one end of a parted cable
the vessel moors it to a buoy and proceeds
to search for the  other  end.   When both
ends are brought together on deck the electrician holds communication with the shore
on both sides to make sure that there are
no other defective places and that the cable
is perfect iu both directions.   This having
been satisfactorily determined  all that remains is to  splice  the ends  together and
drop the cable once more back into the sea.

Lost in the Jungle-
A surgeon ot the Bengal army, Doctor
Paske, ban gone out toward sunset with
four or five English officers in search of
jungle fowl, which they had heard crowing
during the day. The possibility of encountering any larger game, Doctor Paske says,
had never occurred to auy of them. The
doctor soon became separated from the rest
of the company, but had with bim a
Burmese lad to carry his ammunition, By

which were organized 1111715, when the adherents of the Stuart's cause gavo signs of

throughout, the Peninsular campaign, and
when, alter two years'lighting, they received orders to return in 1813, out of 70(1 odd
that had left England, only two hundrod
remained. Upon tlieir return from India
in 1838, where they had been stationed for
19 years, the regiment was chosen as the

An Interesting: Aliican People.
At the Berlin Anthropological Society,
Mr. Merousky hus given some curious particulars about the Kondeh people, in the
German district on Luko Nyassu, Their
country is bordered on the north by tho
Livingstone Mountains und on the south by
the Luke, und this favourable geographical
position bus enabled tho people to develop
in 11 peculiar manner, and attain 11 relatively
high state of civilizution. " Their uffcclions
nro largely developed. Friendship is especially valued among them, und love botween
the sexes strong and firm, as woll us the
domestic affections. Suicide caused by
grid for tho loss of a wife, or child, or even
11 favourite animal, is not unfrequent. The
favourite form of suicide is to enter the
water and allow oneself to bo devoured by n
crocodile. In war time all unnecessary
cruelty is avoided, and women nnd ohildren
who have been made prisoners are set free
again. The position of women among the
Kondehs is unusually high. Women are on
a perfect equality with men in tho eyes of
the law, and offences ugainst women are
even more severely punished than offences
against men."

which I hurled at every clump that looked
