Kaslo but follows the examples set
by Chioago, Seattle and Vancouver,
Which suffered terribly by fire previous to the dawn of their prosperity
and arose phcenix-like from their

DOWN PROM BIG BUND.
Picking up Gold at the Rtito of
$100 ii Day.
Messrs. O. B. Williams and J, W.
McCreury arrived on suowshoes from
French Creek last Saturday, making the
sixty odd miles in three davs. They
have taken out oousiderably over 80,000
from the Cousolation Mine, the result of
four men's work since December let,
Tbis little sum lor four men, wbile practically only putting the mino in a position to be worked on a large scale,
speaks well for Fronoh Creek. The
Consolation is a "deep diggins" drift-
placer mine. It was first worked by
several small companies. A series of
bedrock shafts were sunk, gravel hoisted
out by a windlass, and the water kept
by pumps. As the space widened from
the bottom of these shafts the inflow of
water became too great, and the diggings were abandoned. The olaims
wero considered rioh, and tbe pay was
good, even against such difficulties as
the old shaftmen had to contend with.
The present company scoured a lease of
three-fourths of a mile of the creek bed
from the Government and proceeded to
tap tbe old workings by a COO ft. drain
tunnel. This, with some other development work, has been under way during
the winter, with the result that the mine
is in first-class working condition. It is
well drained, the pay streak is some 25
feet wide, and with three shifts can
easily work between thirty and forty
men. By actual tests the gravel averages clean through tbe pay streak $15 a
day to tbe man, and as tbere are some
3,500 feet of the mine yet nntonohed the
owners can well be enthusiastio over
their prospects. Abont a quarter of a
mile below the Consolation the Vandall
people have struck a bonanza. Here
they have a tunnel into the bench, and
have struck the rim rook of an old channel. How much they have taken out so
far is unknown to Messrs. Williams and
MoCreary. Williams went into the tnnnel the day they left, and the owners, as
an illustration of the mine's wealth,
cleaned up abont $100 off the bedrock
while Williams was standing in tbe
drift. A further acoount of tbis claim
will be given as soon as word comes
from the Bend. Tbe other companies
on French Creek have not as yet reaohed
bedrock. The Selkirk people, ou the
summit of MoCullooh Creek, are still
drifting, and as a ohange has been made
in the ownership of part of the mine it
is expected that matters will progress
more rapidly. A considerable number
of miners and prospeotors will leave tor
the Bend as soon as possible.
The Best Way to Settle the
Trouble.
The Revelstoke correspondent of the
Vancouver World writes that two petitions have recently been forwarded to
tbe Government regarding the Government Agent here���oue praying for bis
removal to a more congenial sphere and
the other praying for an investigation
of the obarges made against him. Every
man���offioial or non-official���ought certainly to be aocorded British fairplay,
and an investigation of the charges laid
against Mr. Kirkup should be held. In
the first petition it was stated that the
Government Agent had used the influence and power of his position to tbe
great detriment of tbe town. Surely
those who make this oharge will be
ready to back it up with proof, There
is no doubt that for a long time past
there has been great friotion between
Mr. Kirkap and many prominent men
of the town and the longer this goes on
the worse for the towu, Let there be
an enquiry held and tbe whole matter
threshed out, or tho situation will by
and by become unbearable. Pending
this investigation these columns will be
olosed to anything that will tend to
widen the breaoh between the Government Agent and the people.

Concert-Entertainment.
Peterson's Hall was rather crammed
on Monday eight at the first-class entertainment given on behalf of tbe Building
Fund of the Presbyterian church.   The
affair was well advertised and a large
attendance was  prophesied,  bnt the
number present exceeded the most sanguine   expectations.     The   honorable
position of chairman devolved upon Mr.
F. Fraser, whose cheery faoe is certainly
an ornament to any platform.    After
"Tbe Sleigh Riders' Serenade" had been
creditably rendered by tbe Glee Clnb
tbe Rev, C, A. Procnnier gave a short
address and a humorous reading entitled
"Excepting Ike."   Mr. O. H. Allen was
then announced to give a violin solo.
He produced a strongly-built, homemade instrument, and, after asking the
pianist to sound the "A," prooeeded to
give a humorous discourse on "dat
fiddle," which elicited r. good deal of
laughter.    Having played his "solo"
the audience called on him to do it over
again, but be generously declined. Mr.
J. D. Devlin gave a mirth-provoking
recitation, "Pat  firing   the butter,
wbioh brought out a vociferous encore,
and he responded witb a song, "The
lads raised among the heather. Mr, W.
J. Lee, Revelstoke's best eomio, then
sang " Mrs. Murphy's Boy Dennis," and
in reply to a loud encore gave "The day
I learned to skate."  The next nnmber
was greatly enjoyed by tbe audienoe. It
was a lantern drill by eight young ladies
in Japanese oostume,   Eaob oarried a
oolored paper lantern, and the effeot was
very pretty.   Rev. C. T. Baylis was tbe
instructor, and tbe ladies were Mrs. T.
Steed, Misses Adair, MoLean, Baird,
Johnson, Maunsel, Hamilton and Brown.
The Indian olnb swinging by Percy
Lewis and Misses L. and R. Valentine
and Edith Lewis was thought so well of
by the audienoe that the young people
were called on to go through the exercise once more.   Mr, Devlin's song,
" He was a pal o' mine," received qnite
an ovation, and be followed with "The
ghost of Benjamin Binj," whioh fairly
brought down the house. The quartette
"Juanita'' was nioely rendered by Messrs
Barber, Baylis, Conrsier and Sbaw. Mr.
Lee gave a song in oharaoter, " Mabi-
table Jones," which brongbt an encore,
to whioh he responded with a laughable
representation, "They're  all getting
married but me,"  Miss Lindquist gave
a very pretty Swedish song, aod then,
while the stage was being prepared for
the farce, Mr. Devlin sang "I bave a
daughter, Mary Ann."   He was again
aocorded a roof-cracking encore, and in
retnrn gave "When shall we meet again"
with great effeot. The farce was very
well pnt on for a first effort of our amateurs, but there was a laok of agedness
in the get-up of tbe "old men."   (The
cast is given beloW.)    Messrs. Baylis,
Barber, Coursier ana Glass terminated
a first-clasB programme with tbe quartette "Hide Thon me."    Coffee, tea,
cake and sandwiches were then served
to the audience, who wore thus feasted
physically, intellectually, morally and
spiritually, and it was a very pleased
orowd whioh stood np to sing the National Anthem.  Great praise is dne to
the Rev. C. T. Baylis, who worked hard
to make the affair the great suocess it
was.   The same may be said of Mr. and
Mrs. Coursier, Mr. and Mrs. Lee, Mrs.
Haig and others.

a note of tbe followiog faot, and patronise a steamer that is being run in the
interest of tbe merchants and travelling

Vanderberg, has heen making regular
trips between tbe bead of the lake and
Naknsp all winter, wbile the boats
of tbe C, k K, Nav. Co, have been tied
up. But for tbe energy displayed by
the Arrow's owner the route between

olosed 1 The 0 k K. Nav. Co's boats
are never permitted to run when freights
are light; the owners have never studied
the oonvenince of the publio or the welfare of the oountry. When summer
brings its usual heavy traffio to tbe lower
oountry it is to be hoped the owner of
the Arrow will be recompensed by those
whom he is at present placing under
great obligations.

Not a True Statement.
Tbe correspondent of the Inland Sentinel is laboring nnder a mistake when
he writes tbat the Revelstoke fire hall
was built by publio subscription. It is
not quite oorrect, either, to say that the
hall is being used for other purposes
than that for which it was erected. 'I'he,
hall was built gratuitously by a member
of the Fire Brigade (Mr. J. W. Haskins,
who is also captain of tbe Snowshoe
Club), assisted at times by one or other
members of the brigade, some of tbem
being paid by the chief (Mr, W. Mj
Brown); the lumber was hauled gratuitously by the teams of tbe Victoria,
Colnmbia and Central Hotels, the material itself being partly paid for ont c'f
the brigade funds and the balance will
be forthcoming from the same source.
Therefore, the statements that tho beti
was bnilt by publio subscription and
instead of being used as a fire ball is
being utilized as the headquarters of
tbe Snowshoe Clnb are an injustice to
those who so generously gave their ser-7
vices and a reflection on tbe captain of
the Snowshoe Club. Mr, Haskins wishes
it to be known that ho informed the
seoretary of the Fire Brigade six weeks'
ago that the hull was oompleted and desired to call a meeting of tbe brigade for
tbe purpose of banding it over. While
waiting for this meeting to take place,
and also for the purpose of warming the,
building, he thought no one could or
would kick if the Snowshoe Club held n
social there ouoe a week, providing theii?
own fire and light.

CHAPTER XXI.
"He's a brute I" snya Larry.
Tho "brute" ia being toil tip ami down
by a groom before the ha.ll door, on Hip
Bteps of which all ths guests of The Hall
are standing.
Tiie beautiful horse, saddled anil bridled,
has just been brought back from a morning
canter,���or a canter supposed to be taken,
in which Jiis rider haa felt the earth many
times, but no canter. Ho is a perfect
picture as he stands there, with a little
foam about the bit, standing' immovable,
quiet, nothing but the*foum to betray temper of any sort, except perhaps the excessive whiteness of the eye.
"You'll never get a day'a good out of
him," continues Larry, addressing Adare.

and early affair tins evening. It ia now

door has opened to admit a little " maiden
of bashful fifteen" and her brother.
"It is too early to dance yet," says Trefuais. He rises hurriedly aud holds out his

"(lh, yea, handsome, but useless. 'Hand,
somo ia as handsome does;' and hia temper is
unbearable, lie's a perfect devil. Notone
of the grooms can rido him."
"I don't think much of grooms," says
Trefusis. "Not for temper, I mean. The'vo
cottugi, enough, as a rule, but they're impatient.   Is it only the grooms!
"And enough, too, I think," aays Terry,
coming forward, having been severely
Vanquished by Mr. Kitta. "liut it isn't
only tho grooms. Larry tried to rido him
last week,���just the day before you came
home, fanny," turning to her
"and lie was thrown,
anything!"
Trefusis flings his cigarette into
close by,
" Larry, who has all the virtues l" says
lie, glancingat her with a smile. It is now
ten days since he came back to Ireland, and
any littic friction or embarrassment between
them thai might at first havo been felt has
quite died away. Torry has been constantly at The Hall, is now staying there, indeed, but, whether by chance ur design,���
sho hasa vague belief in the design,���Trefusis
very seldom comes near her. " And so
Larry can ride anything !''
Ilo moves away from her to whore Adaro
is examining ����� girth on the " brute," who
is uow standing as impassive as if vice and
he were strangers.
" I don't believe him so vicious as you
all say," says he. " I believe," slowly, " I
could conquer him, Give mo a try, Adare,
will you ?"
" My dear fellow, why ? He's sure to do
you some injury even if you do get thc
upper hand."
" Nothing is sure," says Trefusis. "And
I've rather set my mind on taking him for
a gallop over those fields below thore." He
points to where beyond the tennis-courts a
splendid lawn lies, with a field beyoud that
again.
" Well, you're not a novice, as wo all
tnow," aays Adaro. " But do look out for
/ourself, I assure you, aa far aa 1 car

I come with a sickening crash to the ground
at the other side.
I    " Robbie! Robbie !"  cries Mrs. Adare,
, wildly, "you should not have let him do

"My God! what a time to reproach a
man !" says Adare, with terrible glauce at
her. But even as he starts forward, tho
other men following him, they seo Trefusis
stagger to his feet, seize the reins,���the
horse has already risen, aud ia standing
shivering next him,���and fling himself
once more into the saddle.
A wild cheer bursts from those watching
him.
"Oh, ho ia hurt ?" says Terry, faintly.
She drops iuto a chair. A wave of sickness
passes over her. What is his pluck, or
mything, to her, beside tha'. thin lino of
blood running down hia cheek?

them, and in a moment tbey are standing
on the balcony.
A pale taint moon is lying upon a paler
sky, Here and there a star is glimmeiing,
and from the shrubberies tangle in the beyond the warm sweet scent of honeysuckle
comes to them on a little vagrant breezo. It
ia such a white, white night that one can
hardly yet believe tho day to be quite
gone, ao clear lie the paths running along
below them, so pink and blushing "red

of pride in him, that she does not dare de-
tine, runs through Terry's heart. It is
horrible, the way he is flogging the brute,
she thinks; but she understands that, and
how ho feels.
And uow he has torn past thein, down
the lawn again, and has taken the horse
over the ha-ha onoo more, but this time at
his own pace and pleasure. And bo on,
until he comes to thein once more and drops
from hia saddle to the ground, smiling, but
breathing with a little difficulty. It had
been a battle, but he had won. The now
thoroughly cowed creature stands trembling
���'n overy limb, and almost sobbing, beside
,,'m
him,       .,_,���
" Sell him I" says he to Adare, as a groom
leads the horse away. " I know hia kind.
I had a horse liko that once. I conquered
him too, but I found he required reconquering once a week. It wasn't good enough.
It was too fatiguing."
" By Jove I I never saw such riding,"
says Larry, with honest admiration. What
ever else may be laid to Larry's charge, it
can certainly never be the want of generosity.
"He hasn't got any mouth," says Trefusis, He has glanced at Larry, as if
curiously, first, and then has given him

so young, so delicate, She is not conscious
of Trefusis's gaze thia time, a gaze of mingled anger and determination, It is a very
searching gaze.
The girl is startled back from her quick
eager appreciation of tho beauties of the
night, by his voice.
" What wero you crying about ?" ho asks.
His tone is blunt, almost rude.
"Crying?" She blushes crimson, and
her brow darkens a little.
" Yes, crying," immovably. " You had
been crying before you came down to
dinner."
" How do you know that?" she asks,
He looks at her for a moment,���it is a
strange look,���then he laughs.
" What! you can't even lie about that!"
says he, " Why should I not  know how
you look when you have been crying ?  If

" I'll take care," says Trefusis. Ho goes
nearer, and prepares to mount, the groom
holding the horse's head.
A hand is laid upon hia arm. Ho Hinis,
to find Terry bo-side him. Her face is very
pale. She has been hardly conscious of
this extreme step lhat she has taken, until
she meets the deep surprise within his
eyes.
"Don't!" says sho. It ia impossible to
retreat now : she must go on.
"Don't what?"
" Don't ride that horse.   I"���brokenly,
confusedly���"you must not think���

"And I���am not ?"
He laughs  aloud, pushes her hand rather
abruptly  from him, and springs into the
saddle.   That allusion to Larry his irritated him.
It is a hideous struggle.
Ou first mounting, tiie horso had refuse I
to move, standing there with his forefeet
thrust out and firmly planted in the ground
his ears lying close to his neck. Then suddenly, without a second's warning, he had
bolted.
Nobody had beeu frightened until then.
That unexpected and vicious sprm-;
forward would have unseated most riders,
but Trefusis kept his seat. As tlio brute
swung round, he swung with him, and hid
a good hand on the re-n, as he weut wildly
forward.
Like a flash of lightning the horse tore

dashing onward towards the lawn below.

HIS FATAL WEAKNESS.
A Doctor Urged lo Crime By n Mysterious
Power A I'iiIIicIIi- Ini'iilrnl lu a To-
routo Court
A Toronto despatch saysr-It is seldom
that Judge McDougall in tho course of his
administration of criminal justice from day
today, has a fully qualified medical practitioner before him aa a prisoner. Yet the
cruel hand of fate grapples high and Iow,
and it must bave been a truism of this kind
thatran through the judicial mind the othor
day when Dr. William C. Finney, of 'Cloyno
Addington county, Out., oonfronted it
yesterday.
Dr. Finney's misfortunes on a recent
visit to this oity, have already boen narrated. Ho suffered from oxcossive geniality
cowards his friends, and, it is alleged, by
some mistake, gave a cheque on the Molson
Bank for ��17, purported to have been
signed by Authors k Cox, to Mr. Cates, a
King street east restaurateur, iu payment
of a ��12 board bill, and received $35 iu
change.
" I am subject to something that does
not affect other men, and I am a slave to
plusicaland mental distress, and utterly
at the mercy of this power, " were the
opening words of Dr. Finney's apology to
the judge yesterday.
Tho doctor is a fine-looking man of
about 55 years, and Judge McDougall
looked at him interestedly as he proceeded.

One of tho industries of Kiangsu is the
manufacture of mock money for offering to
the dead. Formerly the Chineso burnt
Bham paper money, but in theso days of
enlightenment and foreigu intercourse the
natives of Soongkong, Hangchow, and
other places have oome to the conclusion
that silver dollars aro more handy to the
ghosts than clumsy paper money; hence
they now to a great extent supply their
ancestors and departed friends with mock
dollars.
These aro only half tho size of real dollars, but there appears to bono more harm
in ohoating the dead than there is in cheating the living. Besides, lho deceased are
not supposed to know the difference, for
many of them departed this life before silver dollars were imported into China. A
hundred mock Carolus dollars, done up in
boxes, are sold for 34 cash. The operation
of making this money is interesting. First
of all there are blocks of tin which are melted down and then poured between hoards
lined with Chinese paper, and when the
upper board is pressed down on the lower
a thickness of tin remains,
This is next cut up into strips four inches
long, one wido, and an eighth of an inch
thick. Some ton of these strips are placed
evenly togother,one on topof the other.and
one ond is hold between thc fingera,when the
workman proceeds to hammer them out till
hc has beaten them so fine that they are
now threo feet long and a foot broad and so
thin that they arc not thicker than the Utmost paper. This is next pasted on common
cardboard, which is then cut with a punching
machine to the size of half dollars, and this
having been done a boy takea tho cut out
pieces in hand.and with two dies,one representing the one sido and the othcr the re-
verso, hammers impressions of dollars on
them, and the money is ready for use.
Another very curious instance of tho practice of cheating the gods is recorded, but
from quite a different part of tho country,

made.such as burning firecrackers and pasting happy sentences in red papir on the
doors.

The Battle o? Waterloo-
In answer to a correspondent the Montreal Witness gives the following, a short
account of  tho battle of Waterloo:���Tho
battle of Waterloo was fought on Sunday,
June IS, 1815, two miles from the village of
Waterloo.   Napoleon Bonaparte had abdicated and had promised to remain in the
Island of Elba.   But he broke his promise,
returned to France and again" made himself
Emperor.  Tho  Duko of Wellington was
sent into Beigium with an English army to
help the allied   foroea  against Napoleon.
Marshal Noy in command  of  a French
army attacked tho   English  and  Briiiis-
wickers at Quatre Bras on Juno 10.   Tho
English  maintained thoir position,   however.   Tho  samo  day Napoleon defeated
tho Prussians at Ligny with another section
of the French army,   On June 17, Wellington retreated from Quatre  Bras,  though
his army had held their ground.  At Waterloo he had a  better position, and besides
hoped to form a junction with the German
army under Bluchor. On Juno IS, between
eleven and twelve a.m., Napoloon began
the battle by a brisk .cannonade.   Ho sent
forward   division  after division   of  his
army. The cuirassiers made several charges.
Tho Belgians at first gavo way, but their
places woro taken by English troops. Towards the cud of tho day Napoleon aa a last
reaort, led into aotion that splendid body
of troops known aa the "Old fiuard"   Thoy
were, however, almost annihilated by tho
British.   About half-past four in tho afternoon tho Prussians appeared upon the Hold.
They had boon expected sinco noon.   The
Knglish army thon rested, and the French
having retreated,   tho   Germans pursued
thom llio greater part of tho night,   It is
a mistake to suppose that Wellington waa
taken by surprise al Brussels.   On tbo contrary,ho know of tho French advance, hut
did not wish to throw the city into confusion
by leaving it in un ostentatious   manner.
Therefore, ho and his officers lingered at the
ball given on that  ovoning.   Tho English
had dofoatod tho French before  the l'rua-
alansdarrivod at Waterloo.   In fact',   the
French did not carry a single English post.
Wellington's  position at Waterloo waa a
very Strong  ono.   Had ho boen dofoatod
there, bo could still have hold his ground
In a thick   forest-whiuh covered his roar,
Eaoh   army at,   Waterloo   had about tho

This, says tho Now York Times, is undoubtedly the  only  civilized country in
the world in which the Finance Department
is obliged to beg of tho law making department and plead  with it for authority to
maintain   thc credit  and  honor of the
Government.   Mr. Carlisle haa repeatedly
statod tho great needs of tho Treasurer to
the Finance committee of tho Senate,   He
haa explained to them that tho receipts of
the Government aro now running so far below its expenditures aa to foreshadow a
deficit of $78,000,000 at tbo end ofthe fiscal
year, and tho statement ol the Treasury
balances shows them that tho gold reserve
upon which tho enormous paper issues of
tho Treasury depend for their stability has
been    trenched   upon    to   tlio   extent
of   ��25,000,000,     in   meeting  tho  our-
rent   drafts   upon   tho    Treasury,     In
such   conditions   no   Govornment   can
maintain an unimpairing credit, and in no
other country would the immediate relief
prayed for be denied,   There is, however,
no prospect that Congress will givo  the
Secretary the authority to issue 3 per cent,
bonds.   Tho Senate of  the United States
now contains so small a proportion of patriotic men that it ia difficult even to make

Secretary hus no choice but to avail himself of the authority to issuo  5 per  cont.

Another amusing reminiscence is that of a
wounded pipjr and three others who had
fired their last round of ammunition in the
streets of Lucknow and were attacked by
half a dozen rebels. The threo men with
rifles prepared to defend themselves with
tho bayonet, but as soon as tho rebels were
within twenty paces of the party the piper
pointed the drones of his bagpipes straight
at them, and blow such a wild blast that
they turned tail and fled like tho wind,
mistaking tho bagpipes for some infernal
machine.
The capture of Secundrabagh, a8 described
by the Sergeant, is one of the most exciting
episodes of modern warfare. When the
fight wa3 done, over 2000 of the enemy lay
dead within the building and the center
court, and nine officers and ninety-nine men
of the 93d were among the killed and wounded. In one of the chapters dealing with
the capture Mitchell tells thia curious
story.
Among the volunteers who came from the
72,1 was a man named James Wallaue. He
and six others from tho same regiment join-
them and the breach. When the signal for
the assault was given Quaker Wallace went
into the Secundrabagh like one of the furies,
if there are male furies, plainly seeking
death, but not meeting it, and quoting the
HGth Psalm, Scotch version in meter, beginning at the first verse :
I love the Lord because my voico
And prayers he did hear,
I, while I live, will call on him
Who bow'd lo me his ear.
And thus he plunged into tbe Secundrabagh, quoting the next verse at every shot
fired from his rifle and at each thrust given
by his bayonet. It was generally reported
to the company thatQuaker Wallace, single-
handed,
KILLED TWENTY MEN*,
Whenever he saw an euemy he " went for
him I" I may here remark that thc case of
Wallace proved that iu a fight like the
Secundrabagh, where the enemy is met
hand to hand aud foot to foot, thc way to
escape death ia to brave it. Of course,
Wallace might have been shot from a distance, and in that reaped he only ran an
even chance with the others -, but wherever
he rushed with hia bayonet the enemy did
their utmost to give him a wide berth.
Mitchell had an experience the night
after the Shah Nujeef was taken which was
uot a pleasant one. Relieved from patrol
duty, ho tried to sleep, but the Indian
niglit waa cold, and he rose to search
through the rooms of the mosque, or tomb,
for a possible Sepoy blanket. Picking up
oneof the still burning native lamps left by
the enemy, and holding it high abovo his
head he walked up to the ankles in a pile
of something left in the great vault. It
felt like sand, but it was looae gunpowder.
A second look showed a group of barrels of
powder and heaps of 8-inch shells, all loaded, with the fuses fixed. He stood in the
middle ofa magazine with a naked light I
My hair literally stood ou end ; I felt the

name, but he never took any one into hia
confidence, nor was he ever known to have
any correspondence. He was usually so
taciturn in his manner that he was known
in the company aa thc Quaker, a name
which had followed him from tho 72d. Ho
had evidently received a superior education, for it asked for any information by a
more ignorant comrade he would at once
give it, or questioned as to the translation
of a Latin or French quotation in a book he
would give it without the least hesitation.
I have often seen him on the voyage out
walking up and down the deck of the Bolle-
isle during the watches of tho night repeating the famous poem of Lamartine, "Le
Chien du Solitaire," commencing:
Helasl rentrcr toutseul dans samaisonde-
aerte,
Sans voir a votro npproclio uno fenotro ouv-
orto.
Taking him all in all, Quaker Wallace waa
a strange enigma whicli no one could solve.
When pressed to take promotion, for which
hia superior education well fitted him, he
absolutely refused, always saying that he
had oomo to the 93rd. for a certain purpose,
and when that purpose was accomplished
he only wished to die. During the march
to Lucknow it waa a common thing to hear
the men in my company say they would
give a day's grog to see Quaker Wallace
under fire; and the time had now come for
their gratification.
There was another man in the company
who had joined the regiment in Turkey
before embarking tor the Crimea. Ho was
also a man of suporior education, but in
many respects the very antithesisof Wallace.
He was born wild and reckless, and uaed
often to receive money sent to him from
somo one, which he as regularly spent in
drink. He went under the name of Hope,
but that waa known to be an assumed name,
and when the volunteers from the 72,1 joined tho regiment in Dover it was remarked
that Wallace had the address of Hope.and
had aaked to be posted to lho same company.
Yet the two men never spoke to eaoh other;
on tho contrary, they evidently hated each
other with a mortal hatred. If the.history
of these two mon could bo known it would
without doubt form material for a mostsen-
sat ional novel.
Just about the timo tho men were tightening their bolts and preparing for tho dash
on the breach of tho Secundrabagh, this
man Hope began to curse and swear in such
manner that Capt, Dawson, who commanded the company, cheeked him, telling him
thatoaths and foullanguago woro no signs of
bravery, Hopereplied that he did not care a
d���what the Captain thought; thathe would
defy deatli ; that the bullet was not yot

feeling that I am confident I never felt the
least pain from grasping the burning wick
till after I was outside the building and
once more in the open air; but when I opened my hand I felt the smart acutely enough.
I poured the oil out of the lamp into the
burnt hand, and, kneeling down, thanked
God for having saved myself and all the

and he began exposing himself above tho
mud wall behind whicli we were lying.
The Captain was just on tho point of ordering a corporal and a file of men to take
Hopo to tho roar-guard as drunk ard riotous in presence of the enemy, when Pipe
Major John MoLeod, who was closo to the
Captain, said : " Don't mind tho ptnr lad,
sir ; he's not drunk, ho is foy (meaning
(loomed), It ia not himself i hat's speaking ; ho will nover see the sun sot." The
words were barely ont of tho Pipe Major's
mouth when Hopo sprang up on the top of
tho mud wall, and a bullet struck him on
tho right side, hitting the buckle of his
purso bolt, which diverted its course, and,
iustoad of going right through his body, it
out him round thc front of his belly, below
tho waist bolt, making a deep wound, and
his bowels burst out, falling down to his

Wallace, who had evidently boon a witness
of Hope's tragic ond, worked his way along
to whero tho dead man lay, and, looking on
tho distorted features, he solemnly said:

The first thing that is obvious about the
ruins at Zimbabwe and elsewhere in Mashonaland is that lhey were built to form
a protection for a foreign population who
visited thia country in search of gold: every
means of fortification is employed, every
line of attack is protected with a redundancy of strategical skill perfectly marvelous to behold ; and in the centre of this system, close to the temple on Zimbabwe hill,
waa the ancient gold-smelting furnace.
Here we found crucibles with gold adhering
to them in quantities, a gilt spear head,
tools for working gold, and a soapstone in
got mold of exactly the same shape as those
used by the Egyptians and Phoenicians, a
specimen of which in tin was found in
Falmouch Harbor, and ia now in Truro
Museum.
The country ia full of ancient workings-
shafts sunk 100 feet deep into tho quartz
reefs, both vertical and horizontal; also
crushing stones, water-worn stones which
had been used as burnishers, and rejected
quartz from which the gold had been extracted by fire, are all iound in quantities
over the country. Hence there can be no
shadow of a doubt that the motive for the
erection of these buildings waB the search
for gold in remote antiquity.
From the mass of objects which we found
during our excavations I will name a few
only which bear on this poiut. First, there
is the large number of fragments of soap-
stone howls with elaborate patterns thereon ; one fragmeut giving us a portion of a
religious procession, another a procession
of bulla, and another a hunting scene. Then
there is a curious cylindrical object with
knobs, the only parallel to which is found
at the Temple of Paphos in Cyprus.
Excellent pottery with geometrical patterns and numerous objects representing
nature worship, when taken in conjunction
with the large, solid, conical tower in the
lower temple, point to the cult which was
practiced by the primitive explorers. The
birds on tall sojpstone pedestals formed
perhaps the moat interesting objects among
our finds���curious conventional birds decorated with archaic patterns, which from the
position in which we found them clearly at
ono timo decorated Ihe outer wall of tho
temple on the hill, and from certain signs
thereon we decided lhat they had to do with
sun and nature worship, which subject I
discussed in my detailed account of the
ruined oilies.
Again, from the accurate measurements
whioh we took of the buildings themselves,
wo came to the conclusion that they had
been constructed on an elaborate system of
curves, The diameter of the great tower
at ita base is 17.17 feet, and is oxactly
equal to the circumference of tho littlo
tower ; and all the curves of which the various buildings are constructed had radii of
various multiples oi this diameter. Honco,
from the mass of evidence before us, we
were safely able to assert that the original
builders hai an accurate knowledge of
mathematics, ond the power of constructing
on absolute levels,���[The Fortnightly Review.
Natural Temperature of Water for Stook
On the prairies of North America the
wind is used on almost every farm for
pumping water, and windy as the Great
Plains are, the wind is inconstant, and
calms are frequent. In order to keep up
a continual supply of water for live stock,
reservoirs are used, which are usually
made of plank in the form of a tub or box,
open at the top, and placed in the barnyard
or feed lot, where the stock drink directly
from them, Sometimes the woll and pump
are also placed in the barnyard, but more
frequently they are near the house, aud tho
water is conducted to the tank in pipca
generally placed under ground. While
thia plan haa many advantages, it also haa
some objections which may be readily overcome. One objection is the difficulty of
obtaiuing from the stook woll the water for

house use. Even where the well is near
the house, whenever there ia not sufficient
wind to pump, it is necessary to detach tho
pumb rod and attach a handle, and pump
by hand the water needed for domestic
purposes. If needed pure, ono must empty
the pump of its standing water boforo fresh
well water is obtainable. Another objection
is the great surface of water iu tho tank
exposed to the atmosphere, in summer
making it hot and filthy witli green moas,
scum and other impurities, and in winter
almost constantly covered with ice, which
has to be chopped out daily to permit the
shivering stock to quench their thirst with
tho Ice-cold water.
The writer has adopted a system of watering stock which obviates both these difficulties. The well is close to the kitohon. The
windmill tower spreads twelve feet- at the
base, as all windmill towers ought to, and
if very high they should spread wider, to
guard againat their blowing down. The
platform, a, on preceding page ia twelvo
feet square, one side of which supports a
tank made in cylinder form '.'of'* galvanized
sheet iron, thirty inches deep and six feet
in diameter, a part of which is shown at ',.
The punip,c , stands in the middle of tho
platform,-with tho spout passing just ovor
the edge of the tank. A waste pipo,e, made
of one and a half inch pipo is attached near
the top. Two thicknesses of foil paper wore
then wrapped around the tank, and tied in
position by a small, stout cord. Straight
board staves one by four inches, and three
feet long, wero placed upright around the
tank, apart of which are shown at/, and
held in position by 2 hoops, ,/. Tho stavos
are built all around, hut it is necessary to
show a part of them removed,to give a viow
of the tank inside. The whole is covered
by a lid, A,made ol two thicknesses of inch
lumber lying transvcrsoly. It stands six
inches above tho tank, to allow tho spout to
pasa under. A part of thc lid at tho side
next the kitchen is hinged, opening back
against a reel, j,tor dipping out water. The
discharge pipo, it, one and one-half inches

Hieeases ofthe Horse-
At a recent mooting of the Montreal Veterinary .Medical Asaociation, several valuable papers on horse diseases woro road,
Mr. A.H.Hall presented the subject of
epizootic pleuritis and pleuro-pnoumonia in
the horse, defining the disease as inflammation of tho pleuro and substance of the
lung, accompanied by fevor of a low typhoid form of from sovon to 14 daya' dura-
tion,occurring but once a seasou,the animal
being liable to future attacks of tho disease.
The causes wero variations and alterations
in temperature, and occurring iu spring and
autumn, generally from being overworked
or driven and exposed to cold, aud also
stating the disease to bc contagious and
often times liable to develop into a general
outbreak, but thia depeuded on ita virulence and intensity, The writer described
the symptoms and variations taking place
during the progress of this form of disease
and also the methods of arriving at a correct
diagnosis and the complications that were
liable to take placo during its progress,also
describing the method of treatment and
discussing the goneral remedies used.
Mr. J. R. Shaw read an interesting
essay on pneumonia, stating that it was an
infectious disease prevalent among the
equine species aud characterized by inflammation of the lungs and constitutional
disturbances of varying intensity. It waa
one of tho most wide-spread of acute diseases Tho writer stated that horses kept
in cities, where thoy are exposed to cold
and hardships, are most liable, especially
imported horses, being exposed during
their journey to this country. He described tho organism found in this disease, its
form, habits and action in tlie lung tissue
which invaded other parts of the body. The
lower the vitality of the animal tho greater
theactivity ot theorganiani in producing ita
specific effects, tho most prominent point
of attack being the right lung in this
disease. Thc mirbid anatomy of the
tissues involved were minutely described 03
well as the changes in the different itages
of thc disease and observations concluded
from .developments by the microscope. The
writer showed the diagnostic symptoms in
the three different stages of disease with
their variations and suggested that different
therapeutic remedies be used to treat it
scientifically aa bettor results would bo
obtained. In its treatment remedioi were
recommended, their action explained aud
goneral directions for local and internal
treatment fully considered.
Mr, J.V. Solandt read an essay on colic
with treatment and experiences withquacks.
Pointing out the great advancement made
iu the treatment of this disease iu the horse
within the past forty years, the writer assorted that prompt attontion and immediate
treatment wero necessary for good results.
The practitioner being called to a case of
colic might expect to find most any diseaso
in progress; this waa often due to tho fact
that diversity of opiuion and ingenious
originality of treatment on tho part of the
would be veterinarian waa ofton exhibited.
In somo sections of the country it had been
found that horsemen became attached to
one remedy, this being uaed aliko in colic,
pneumonia, pleurisy, peditis, etc., one of
the popular farmers' mixtures being molasses, ginger, pepper, soda, oil, etc. Other
diseases had been ofton taken for colic, aa
a nail in thn foot. The foot being
moved towards the abdomen was
taken. as signs of abdominal pain,,
aconite being often given for supposed
cases in largo enough doses to produce poisoning . All theso facts made diagnosis dlfll-
oult to tlm veterinarian, Man deriving ao
much'profit, pleasure and pecuniary benefit
from the horse should treat him humanly In
health and in sickness and should provide
his boast with the best medical aid and

characteristics and terminations In each, as
well us,giving an iiuiliu,, of tho treatment
and tho ihorupquliereiindios to bo giveu in

Two months ago Inspector Stark sent
out a description of a man he wanted to all

Bailey's capture.

Honco his call on the doctor.
But there is jus* one littlo proviso the
plausible Mi, Hailey is caid to have added,
it waa the rule oi the company lhat us
medical examiner! should take a policy for
f 1,030.   Th,-first premium would be S.o.
Now Mr. Bailey was a nice-looking,
middle-aged gentleman, who might be a
Sunday tchoi 1 superintendent or a lay
preacher. He looked good, and his handa
smelt of soap. So tho genial young surgeon of liio Toronto Field Battery, it is
claimed, put up the $20 with good grace.
Friend Bailey never, it is claimed, came
back,
NOTIFIED THE POLIOB,
Dr. Elliott reported the matter to tho
police, and Investigations were made. It
was found that a man answering Bailey's
description had worked the entire provinco
during the inmmer and autumn with the
scheme. Not only Dr. Elliott, but other
Toronto physicians, it ia alleged, were
duped, and when Detective Black arrives
In Toronto with hia pii-oner, itis aaid,
many charges wiil be ready.
Complaints from Brockville, Hamilton
nnd Si. Thomas have already been laid.
Tho sch. me Bailey is alleged lo have
worked was always thc same. Hc, it ia

SATURDAY, MAR. 3, 1893.
. Whatevee can the Tribune mean
by calling the North Riding a "hive" f
It is rather ti complimentary term
thnn otherwise; but knowing that the
Tribune would not under any circumstances pay the Revelstoke Division a
compliment we are compelled to accept the term as being uncomplimentary, But all the same, it is to be
hoped that the North Riding will becomo a "hive" of busy industry. With
its valuable gold reefs and placer
mines iu tbe Big Bend and Lardeau;
itB silver and copper mines at Hle-
cillewaet, Fish Creek nnd Trout Lake j
its vast lumber regions bordering the'
Columbia and ite tributaries; its rioh
funning lands at Revelstoke, Hall's
Landing aud tbe Northeast Arm*
with all these requisites for making'
tilings "hum" there is certainly a
groat deal of truth in tbe Tribune's
fetntemeut. The North Hiding is fast
becoming a hive, aud a busy one; too:
But we did not know tbe Tribune watf
in the prophecy business.
The Nelson papers seem to think
that if the North Riding ici entitled
to one member the South Riding is
entitled to two, on account of having
a larger list of voters. AS three members for West Kootenay is out of the
question the proper thing to do is to
even up matters by transferring Home
bf those southern voters to the ftortb
Riding. It could be done by placing
the dividing line just Bouth ot Ure
Valley and following the river north'"
ward to the 50th parallel. It will be
more convenient for the inhabitant*
Of the district tributary to ihe Arrow
Lakes to be in the North Riding, on
tbe same grounds that all the district
tributary to the Kootenay Lake and
River should be in the South Riding;
Revelstoke is easier of access frotn
Fire Valley than either Nelson or
Kaslo, whichever of those towns may
become the metropolis of the South
Riding, If the people of the North
Riding desire this change let them
speak out now or fen; ever alter hold
their tongue.
