Two prospector* Messrs Harvey and
Smith wbo left here very recently ina

unpleasant experience. Finding some
miles up that tbe stream was too strong
to row against tbey got out to tow tbeir

was standing gave way with bim and lie
fell into tbe river, narrowly escaping being drowned, Unluckily this oaused
both to lose tbeir: hold of tbe boat
wniob started full speed back for Revelstoke. It was however caught by
some Indians and with its contents taken care of till the owners appeared.
They oamped on tbe river bank near
tbe Viotoria for a day or two, aod left
again on Tuesday for another attempt.

From the News Advertiser of Sept.
7th,���By an advertisement, whioh appears elsewhere, it will be seen that the
C. P. Railway Oompany is calling for
tenders for tlie construction of 10 miles
oi the Arrow Lake Branoh of its railway
from Revelstoke sonth. It is understood that the construction of tbis section of the road before the close of the
year is expected to enable tbe Company
to reach open water and so maintain the
tbrongb traffio during the winter. This
means a great deal not only for Kootenay, but for tbe trade of Vancouver and
Victoria. The decision of the Company
to proceed witb tbis work at tbis time,
demonstrates tbat it is able to prosecute
desirable nr judicious extensions of its
system at a period of financial stringency which is taxing very severely the
resources of roads, wealthy bnt not so
judiciously managed as the C. P. R. It
is also another proof of tho firm belief
of the Company in the possibilities of
traffio from tbe development of tbe
mineral resources of tbe Kootenay distriot.	
BeaNey Childrcns' Concert.
Very seldom indeed has it fallen to
our lot to enjoy such a musical treat as
tbat which was provided on Wednesday
eveniii'* lust by the Beasey children.
Suoh natural  i.;raee and ease characterised ih." cxeontion of most difficult
classical music that it was hard to believe tbe performers were but children;
the time and  tune being  perfeot ' in
every   piece.     Wbun   all   were    ao
thoroughly excellent it is not easy to
select anyone for special praise but tbe
performance of,;Miss Jennie Beasey on
the piano was something to remember.
Thattaleuted young lady proved herself
a bom musical artiste, as much at home
on tho violin as on tho piano, aud tbe
"March to heaven," her own composition, was worthy of a far more experienced composer.   The programme (far
too short for tbe audience) consisted of
8 pieces, several of which reoeived a
well merited encore; the audience seeming to consider that it was no great
trouble to tbe young ladies to   play
all the evening if asked to do so; aud the
ease and rapidity witb which tbe sisters
bandied their   instruments   may well
serve as an excuse for suoh an opinion.
Tbe audience was far smaller than the
entertaiuuicnt deserved, but tbis was
partly owiug to the non arrival of the
advertising posters in due time, and
partly to local causes,   If small however the audience was highly appreciative, and most heartily enjoyed what
was i.ui only uu evenings' uiiturtaiumeut
but a rare musical treat.   We sincerely
hope to have Ibe pleasure of seeing and
beiw'ig these graceful and accomplished
young ladies nguio on no distuut ocoas-
The Kootenay DiMtrictt-.
The Kootenay districts continue to
give every indication of great mineral
wealth, and prospecting is active.
Eighteen hundred and eighty-night
olaims were recorded during 1892.
These districts bave an advantage >ver
the northern mineral bearing portion
of tbo province, tnusmnch ns llie lakes
and rivers are open at all seasous, and
several of tbe bitter ure navigable during some months ofthe year; but it is
to tbe construction of the several short
lines of railway��� charters for which
have been granted-tbat cheap 11importation must be looked for. L irge
sinus have been spent by private individuals on traili. and on a waggon roal
to connect Kootenay lake witb Three
Forks, to tap several mines there.
Some shipments have been made to
Taooma, ou which tbe cost of transportation by pack train from tbe mines to
Kootenav lake���a distance of between
20 and 30 miles��� has been $40 a ton.
From lhe latter point to the smelter at
l'acoma tbe frieght rate was $3 a ton.
In addition to theso freight outlavs, tbe
ore was subject to United States duty of
iy,e. a poHud on lead contained therein
and whioh runs about 60 per cent., thus
making a total for freight aud duties of
about 866 a ton. exclusive of the cost of
miuiug and smelting. Notwithstanding
these exoessive charges the profits of
these ventures were satisfactory, mil
other sbipmeiits will follow. One miue
is being worked with steam drills aud
a concentrator. Witb this exception,
no mining ou a practical basis has yet
been attempted. Such enterprises re
quire large capital, consequently prospeotors are obliged to recoup themselves
by tbe sale of their .claims, and of tbe
olaims reoorded dnring 1892, about 50
per cent, were transferred, whilst many
others bare been bonded for various
sums, aggregating hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The lead and silver-bearing ores are,
at present, ooenping tbe attention of the
majority of tbe prospeotors, but some
very fine specimens of oopper ore and
large deposits of iron have been found
Gold, in placer, hydraulic and quartz
workings, has been found on the Salmon
river and its tributaries, and promises
rioh results. Prosoeotors and capitalists
are yearly increasing, and are closely
followed by traders tn all kinds of mer
obandise. Much capital is being invested in smelting, and reclaiming lands
and in tb* lumber business. Two of
the leading banks doing business iu the
Province found it desirable to establish
branches in the West Kootenay district
in 1892.
The development of tbe Kootenay
Distriots is steady and undoubtedly
solid. The extent and variety and richness of the minerals fonnd there,and the
natural advantages found in an abundance of timber ou tbe spot, and tbe
proximity of vast fields of superior coal
must result in successful development.
When a few miues have proved remunerative, then, and then only, may
be expeoted a large influx of the capital
required to construct tbe railways, aud
to transform these districts into what
they are destined to be���tbe riobest

that she may he In a measure to blame for
holh cuts her to the heart,
She sits quite silent, her hands busy with
somo crowd-work that she is doing. Mrs.
Bradshaw li. Woollffe is piying her a morn-
ing visit, Lady Joan has tied at the first
approach of the enemy, ami so Lauraine
has to cnti'i'laiu her alone,
Mrs. Woollffe talks on, on ; but her listener hears nothing of what she says. Her
thoughts aro only with the man
whose lifo sho has wrecked. Her
storin-shattorcd heart aches and throbs with
memories freshly brought to life. She has
done what was right; she has severed ber
life from his, but if it makes him evil, desperate, hopeless; if itsends him to profligate
imon and bad women, if his bright young
manhood is laid waste and desolate, was it,
.onId it he, right after all?
Her influence, her presence, had always
been a restraint upon hioi, and she had
denied him both���cast him out to the fire
of temptations, the recklessness of despair.
It was a horrible thought -, no one knows
how horrible save a woman whose soul is
Jiure, whose heart is passionate, who sees
the life she loves and fain would bless, pass
out and away from her keeping, and knows
that it is beyond her power to recall or
claim its fidelity ; who sees il lose itself in
evil, and seek forgstfulness in wild ami
Icverisli excitements, and knows that a
word, one little word might have held it
back and kept it safe and unharmed,
" I must not think of it, I must not," she
Bays to herself ill passionate scorn ; anil she
looks up from the tangled crewels and tries
to interest herself in Mrs. Bradshaw
Woollffe's gossip, and promises to drive
with her in the Lichtenthal Allee, forgetful
of Lady Jean's disgust.
" Well, I'll go," says hor loquacious frionc"
" I have some news that will please you,
I hope," he says. " I am going lo marry
Nan, 113 you advised me.'1
For one .startled instant. Lauraine ia quite
unable to speak or move. She feels the hot
blood surging to her brain ; she I urns dizzy
and faint. But the importance of self-command is present to her mind. She forces
herself to appear as little moved as possible.
Her voice is perfectly calm as she says:
"lam glad to hear it. Pray accept iny
And then Sir Francis joins them, and
there are more congratulations and a great
deal of noise and exoitemont, and Mrs. Bradshaw Woollffe and her party leave the stand
and go down to the pretty racecourse, and
Lauraine pees Keith by the sido of Miss
Anastasia J, Jefferson, and wonders is sho
dreaming���is all this real ? For hor the gay
scene is altogether dull and wearisome.
Turn where she will, look where she may,
she only sees that haggard young face,
only hears the shrill, ringing laugh of the
pretty Amerioan, whom every one calls
" Dresden China," and who looks like a
dainty little Watteau shepherdess in her
flowered silk costume and big hat, and pied
up sunny curb.
Long before the close of that day tho
news is on every tongue, The young
millionaire is going to marry " Dresden
China," and Lady Jean looks maliciously at
Lauraine, and laughs and noils Iier head
mysteriously, saying she'll believe it when
she sees it.
" Too sudden to be much good," she says,
as they discuss the event that evening at
dinner. "Though she's been spoons ou
him for ever so long."
"She's awfully pretty," remarks Sir
Francis. "Why shouldn't he care for
"No reason why he shouldn't. I only say
he doesn't," answers Lady Jean.
"So much the better," says an attache to
the Austrian Legation, who makes one of
the party. " Love matches are a mistake.
Never yet knew oue turn out well.

And sho laughs again : soft, amused,
pleasant laughter, that seems to bold no
malice, to be the outspring of no evil
And al! ihe time her heart is full of both.
For, as virtue shames vice, and purity
shows up the grosser contrast of immorality,
so she feels ashamed and rebuked by the
words and presence of Lauraine. "If ever
two people loved, they love," she had said
tn herself that past season ; and now it had
all come to nothing, There was no hold
over Lauraine, no petite histoire, nothing to
smile and sneer a-.
" If she hid only compromised herself
ever so littlo," she thinks to-night as she
looks at the lovely calm face, the grave
dark eyes. " And now the projected marriage.   It is awfully queer.   If she  had

Separating Cream.
The Orange J udd Farmer knows of but two
good ways to crea-u milk, one by deep set-
ling in cold water, the other by using a
separator. A writer in a so-called Agricultural paper published in Chicago, a paper
with no dairy editor ar.d therefore apt to
do great harm hy recommending wrong
methods of dairying, lightly brushes aside
these two approved methods and lauds a
third. He says the butter made by submerged deep setting " lacks deli acy of
flavor and is readily detected." As for the
separators, he says " they not oniy require
nice adjustment and mechanical ability to
operate, but money to buy them." And
so he praises his methods, " which is fast
coming iuto nse whatever it is known, is
very simple and inexpensive, a saving of
time and labor, and very easily demonstrated, as it can bo tried without; expense by
anyone who has the milk and the can."
This is all lovely to road until vie
note tho method. Hero it is: "The
milk warm from the cow is strained' into a can until it is half filled,
then the oan is filled up with cold spring or
well water, whicli aerates tho mill; and
immediately reduces its temperaturo to
about 70 �� even in the warmest of weather.
All the cream will separate and rise to the
surface in less than four hours. The combined milk and water is drawn by a faucet
from tho bottom of the can till tho cream
appears, which is then drawn into a separate vessel. As tho cream is separated in
less than four hours, the can or cans used
for the morning's milk are ready to be used
for the night's milk. All that need go into
the house is the cream, thus lightening the
labor there. The diluted skim-milk is fed
to the pigs, the butter fat extracted from it
being replaced by the cheaper fat in corn-
I meal in such proportions as are needed to
feed the growinj or fattening stock. No
time is lost���no labor hy the dilution process. As soon as the milk is mixed with
water the separation is going on naturally
while the farmer isattending to other duties.
In four hours, or even less, the cream can
be taken. This quick, inexpensive process, requiring no ice, even in the warmest
weather, enables the farmer to convert his
cream Into Ir.uier at home without the expense of carrying or having it carried to the
creamery. It also enables farmers supplying the markets to maintain a fair price for
their milk. They can minufactiire it into
butter for a time and reduce the quantity
oi milk sent to the market until it will
command a fair price. The farmers can
control the price of milk if they wish, instead of the contractors dictating what they
shall take." Our comment on thc aboveis
. sufficient, It is all bosh. Undor special
circumstances it may he advisable to dilute
ths milk ofa "stripper" which gives milk
so glutinous that it cannot be creamed by
setting entire, but as a practice milk dilution is nonsense. It is not a new method
just coming iulo use. It has been recommended repeatedly by cranks and repeat-
edlyexploded !>y Experiment Stations. It
hurts the milk for feeding purposes and it
wastes butter fat.

A Speculation 02 Death.
When the typhoid epidemic was at i'3
height, when case3 were being reported
daily and everybody expected that there
would be many deaths from the disease,one
local flower firm decided to makea speculation on death. It was figured out that
there would be an unusual number of deaths
and that this would cause a demand for an
unusual number of floral pieces. In the
manufacture oi floral pieces moss is an absolute necessity, and the peculiar kind that is
used imes from Oregon and Washington.
The firm in question thought to make a
speculation by ordering a quantity of this
moss -��� "iy and running a corner in it. The
moat ins arrived and has beon placed in
storage, But out of all the eases of typhoid
[ever tho deaths have numbered less than
twenty-five, nnd there is one firm that has
moss enough on hand for several years.���

Only those com.uanding corps and divisions have posts from which to survey a
battle-field while the lighl is on. If the
fighting is furious all along the lines even
the general in command may not be able lo
take in over half a mile in front. Ono ray
hare been in a dozen battles without witnessing more than the maneuvers of a brigade. Battles usually end in withdrawal
and pursuit. Iu either case nearly all the
troops on both sides are set in motion, and
so men who have been fighting all day march
away anil see only tho dead and wounded
in their front. But very few wounded are
brought in by night, and the dead can wait
for tiie sun to rise. To move about on the
field at niglit is to take your life in your
hand. There are ghouls robbing the dead
who will fire upon you, and there ore wounded men who will treat you as a toe. There
are riderless horses galloping about, while
others, maddened with the pain of wounds
will rush at you open-mouthed from tho
It is when morning comes again that
those left behind to bring in thc wounded,
bury the dead, and collect, the equipments
scattered over miles of ground perhaps, can
see and fully realize how fierce and deadly
the lighting was. The dead are not all on
tho battle lines. Hero >vherc the reserves
wero posted, a mile in the rear,are the first
of them. They have been killed by solid
shot or bursting shells. They are lying in
heaps and iu nearly every case the face is
covered by poncho or blanket. Down this
front of a mile in length we find a dead man
here and there as wo advance, sometimes
two or three together, but there are no
wounded. They were removed under fire.
Half a mile in the roar of the battle line we
come upou the tirst of the men killed hy
musket fire. They wero not really under
lire, hut acting as supports, and yet the
ranks lost heavily,
It is curious to note the positions of the
dead where the bodies havo not been inter
feredwith. Nineoutof ten are lying broad
on tlieir backs with arms outstretched.
Tlieir feet- are pointed all around the compass, but more of them lio with their heads
to the cast than in any othcr direction. The
men shot in the head are lying at full lougth
those below the neck have 0110 leg drawn
up and thoir lingers are clenched. Thero
is not on any face what you call a look of
pain or anguish and neither do you find
smiles or placidity. Look into tlio faces of
10(1 men killed in bittb ami you will find
the same general expression, whether old or
young. It is a look of surprise and fear.
This look rests on the faces of men killed in
their tracks, as it were. The mortally
wounded man may turn on his aide to die,
and you may find him with n smile ou liis
face. He has had time to breathe a prayer;
to think of wife and children and homo ; to
realize that his time haa come.
The battle line runa across a highway,
over an old cotton field, across a meadow,
and into the woods. The men nude breastworks of rails and dirt. Al one spot lliey
had the cover of a stone wall, at another
the banks ofa winding crock. Here was
where a brigade without tho slightest cover
rushed in to bold a gap in the line. The
dead and wounded lie just as they fell���live
dead to one wounded. The enemy used
grape and canister from a battery planted
on that ridge, and the missiles did terrible
execution. Hence along the breastwork the
troops wcre lying down and liro I from that
position. Nearly eveiy deal mini slid rests
at full length ou his stomach, though their
faces seem halt buried in tho grass. Many
of the muskets still rest across the breastworks. Here for .'I'll) feet we cannot find a
wounded man. Most of the dead wero
struck in the face or throat,
With his back to the wall sits a dead
man who probably lived an hour or two
aftei- he was hit. His knees are drawn up
for a rest for his arms, and his head is thus
supported. Next on his left is a captain
lying on his back with his outstretched
right arm still holding the sword, and that
sword rests across the body of another dead
man. Tiie ollicer was struck fairly between
the eyes by the bullet. His lips aro parted
as if shouting a command when death came.
We hesitate for a moment and then step
over the breastworks and advance to tho
creek, At this spot it was midway between
the combatants. Niglit before last friend
and foe filled their canteens here, sometimes
elbow to elbow, but purposely ignoring
each other's presence. Here is the horror
of tho battle field. We knew it would be
so, but wero impelled to come.
The banks of the creek are nowhere less
than two feel high ; in some places lhey are
five or six. The head of the stream is six
or eight feet wide, hut the flow ol the water
only half that, and from six inches to a foot
deep. On a front of half a milo all the
wounded on both sides who could creep or
pull themselves along inch by inch made for
this creek as the fighting ceased. They
reached the hanks and flung themselves
down. They filled the bed. from bank to
bank, lying threo, four or live deep. Here
and there may be a living man,but nineteen
out of twenty perished last night. They
fought each other for the water, but only
the tirst oomors quenched tlieir thirst. Before they could move away they were caught
ill the crush. It is 11 great trench, with ils
dead ready for the dirt to hide them, and
Ihe waters of the creek have been dammed

A Story ot insi'imiriiri on nn Ocean Liner.
The steerage of an ocean liner can uevor
be made quite so comfortable as homo.
" But," said live respectable yonng Englishmen in substance to the Kev. Mr. Renaiid,
immigration chaplain at Montreal, " we
draw the line at drinking bilge water, aud
eating rotten herrings."
These young men told a distressing story
of hardship endured upon a certain transatlantic steamer, upon which tbey came out
as steerage passengers. The tea was made
of bilge water. There was neither sugar
nor milk. They were told that their berths
would be on the cabin deck. They were
put in the hold, upon a lot of frowsy shavings, to herd for fourteen days with foreigners who never washed themselves, who ate
rotten herrings with tlieir fingers, and slept
with them under their pillows; who made
private conveniences ot their bunks, which
caused an insupportable stonch for a fortnight. These five men took oil their clothes
for the first time last night a nee they left
"Andwhy'didyou'coineont by this line?"
asked tho Rev, Mr. Renaud. The answer
was���first, because it was cheap ; second,
because the agent promised belter treatment than tbe Knglish lines, as this boat
carried ouly steerage passengers, who would
thus he waited upon better than if there were
three sets of passengers; third, because they
were solemnly promised thatthe moment
they landed the agont would have situations
for them.
" And is it possible that people in England
believed these lies ?"  Mr. Renaud asked.
" Everybody believes it," was the answer.
"But there waa no agent to obtain us
employment, and we can't find it at our
trade by lhe most diligent searching."
" Thia is one of the greatest cruelties of
the immigration business," was the comment of i\lr. Renaud. "These agents go up
and down tho country lying to the people
right and left. They promise them everything and thoy make not the slightest effort
to procure thom anything. It is a thousand
pities that no way could be found of reaching and punishing them. Of course, it is
au old story with us, but it is too bad that
it oould not be generally known in the Old
Country that no reliance could be placed in
the stories of the agents. Canada is a good
country, and no doubt these respectable
young men will bo all right in a short time,
although it is laborers rather than artisans
we want; but it is too bad that they should
have been deceived,"
" And about this immigration business
generally,"continued Mr. Renaud; "I find
that we have to make the closest scrutiny
into the characters of some who come out.
1 refer more particularly to young girls who
find their way into our homes, and have a
good deal to do with the bringing up of our
boys and girls. Ou the whole, they are
fairly respectable this season, but thoro are
black sheep amongst thom. The societies
on the other side, no matter what inquiries
they make, aro now and then deceived.
No complaint could be made about a person who, having committed a wrong, was
sorry for the wrong, and came out determined to do better. Not at all. Such persons deserve evory encouragement. But
then, when not only has the life heen wrong
in England, but continues to be wrong here
what are you to do ? There wcre some cases
not long ago where sevsral young girls, apparently good, got nice situations in town.
They had an excellent chance with some of
our best ladies, but it was found that they
were pursuing bad courses. 1 had to investigate two of the oases, ami found a
state of things which oould hardly be credited. In England it was bad. Hero it
was worse. Oneof them promised earnestly 10 amend and begged for a chance, which
wiib given her. but the other I sent right
home again. We do not want such people
in our families, I do not blame the societies on the othcr side so much as the persons who, in the first instance, recommend
such persons to the societies."

The substitute for glass, brought to
notice some time ago by a manufacturer in
Vienna, Austria, observes a writer in the
New York Hun, is pronounced a practical
thing, likely to be introduced as valuable
for certain purposes. The article is produced hy dissolving from four to eight parts of
collodion wool in aboul 100parts by weight
of ether or alcohol or acetic ether, and with
this are intimately combined from 2 to 4
per cent, of castoroil and 4 to 10 per cent,
of resin or Canadian balsam. This compound when poured upon a glass plato and
subjected to the drying action of a current
of air about 50 per cent, solidifies in a comparatively short time intoatranspwentglaiBa-

may be regulated as required. Tho sheet
or plate so obtained has substantially the
same properties as glass, resisting the action
of salts and alkalies, and of dilute acids,
and, like glass, is transparent and has no
smell. Again, it is said to be pliable or
flexible and infrangible to a great degree,
while its inflammability Is muoh less than
that of the collodion substitutes. Any desired color may bo imparted to the compound hy admixture of the necessary pigment, the latter to be soluble in the solvent
used in the preparation of the compound if
incorporated therewith ; but color may bo
imparted by surfaco application, aiiniline
dyes being employed, and thus the sheets
may ba used in lieu of stained glass.
Antiquity of Hot-Air Wast-
Ii a recent theory be correct the hot-air
blast for iron furnaces, patented by Kiel-

from 1500to50OB, C. The most important
object attained from the mound is a cuneiform tablet, tho first record of pro-Israelit-

Thn value of a principle is in the number
of things it will explain ; and there is no
good theory of a disease which does uot at
once suggest a cur.a, Kingworm-
Ringworm is a contagious disease of a
parasitical nature, produced by the growth
in tho skin of a vegetable fungus. Its beginning and progress remind one of the
spread of fire in prairie grass. From a point
it spreads outward in a mire or less regular
ring of reddish inflammation, subsiding in
the centre as il spreads outward, as if the
material necessary for its continuance at a
single spot were soon exhausted.
It attacks all parts of the body, but is
most commonly found on the face, the back
of the hands and tnescalp.
Children contract il oftener than adults,
probably because their skin is more tender,
and because peculiar opportunity is afforded
for direct contact of the person In schools
and other places where children congregate.
The disease is commonly spread by means
of caps and other articles of clothing, and
by combs.
When it attacks the scalp the hairs become dry, brittle and twisted, and fall out.
The ends next the skin look rough, as
though bitten or gnawed off.
Since ringworm is parasitical in its origin,
it might be supposed thsl measures of simple cleanliness would remove it or prevent
its occurrence ; but while suoh measures
hinder its spread to some extent, ita thorough removal is ell'ooted only by remedies
aimed ai tbo destruction of the parasite.
This is a much more serious task than :t
would be if tho growth of tho fungus took
place directly npou the surface ot the skin.
It is therefore important that the treatment
should he exactly fitted lo the peculiarities
o; the particular cose,
Il is the more important that professional
advice should be sought, because thc occurrence of ring worm is often associated with
a degree of systemic debility or insufficient
nutrition, Somo of the most rapid and permanent recoveries from this troublesome
disease are obtained when, in addition to
proper medical treatment, the patient is
sent away from home for a time though the
distance ho but slight.
A writer in a recent medical review says
that when ringworm appears In a school,
rigid measures should be taken to prevent
its spread, as lhe disease, though apparently
easily cured, is apt to recur, ami if neglected, to become more or less chronic.

uncomplicated form ; while turnips were
found to he almost a specific in the simpler
types ol rheumatism common to young men,
where the only predisposing cause was exposure to the elements. It booh became
apparent that the milder types of intermittent fever disappeared during the tomato
season ; whereas certain langours and pains,
having their origin in the de-nitrogenizing

the body.
When ono takes a turkish bath, these
scales aro softened up, and aro rubbed off
in tho shampoo, so that, to a certain extent
lhe person is skinned. Theso scales are rubbed off by the clothing, and come in contact with other bodies. This procsss is
going on all the time, and those parts of the
body which aro most exposed and have the
most attrition with external bodies, are
kepi the moat thoroughly cleansed and free
from this condition of dandruff'. Vou will
never find scales in the palm of tiie hand,
becauso frequent contact with various objects keeps tho dead scales rubbed off, und
tbo palm free.
But un the head, where the hair prevents
this exposure of the skin directly iu contact with outside bodies, theso scales are
retained in great numbers. Especially is
this so when tho head is covered much ofthe
timo by a hat or bonnet, 'lhc scales are
thrown off, but they are held about the roots
of thc hair, aiidin this way one may have an
accuinlatiouof dandruff even when the skin
is healthy. In ibis caso, the remedy con-
��istB iu brushing the scalp thoroughly and
frequently. Most people make the mistake
of brushing the hair ; it is not the hair thai
needs to be brushedi but tho scalp. This
is vory important for the health of the scalp.
Vmi will notice that the good barber nuts
aside tho hair with his linger, and follows
bis linger with the brush, until ho has
brushed the entire scalp in this way. By
tills means tho scalp is thoroughly cleaned.
The scalp should be brushed iu Ihis way al
least throe or four times a week, in ordor
to keep it froo from dandruff, or from those
A neglect to remove these scales trim
the body produces a very unhealthy and
disagreeable state of things, in other parts
of the body l!nn the scalp. It sometimes
causes itching of the arms and legs, particularly about the knees and shins, where
the scales have a tendency to ���cumulate,
if one does not bathe frequently.
Ei ery hair on the body grows from a
little pocket in the skin ; and when these
little scales are not promptly removed,they
get over these pickets, and then the hair,
in attempting to grow, is forced to lift the
scalp up. This is wiiat causes the itching
tha'is so disagree ible.
Equal parts of alcohol and castor oil, applied after a thorough shampoo with good
soap and water, is the best remedy for dandruff.
Field Notes-
Ventilate the vegetable cellar at night
so it will be cooled by the night air aud
keep it closed during the day. Cellars need

Do not risk having grain stand in the
shock too long. Tnere are a number oj
small wastes which constantly go on and
which will, in a short time, aggregate more

Growth of plants is directly proportionate
to thc supply of nutriment furnished them.
Do not neglect to haul out all of the manure

Many weeds will be destroyed before they

them out of all waste places, such as old
stack yards, orchards, along road sides,etc.
It will save future trouble.
Plow as much stubble land as possible in

Give clover a prominent place in systems
of rotation. It adds much of fertility to
the soil and is especially valuable as a food
for stock either as hay or pasture. It has
the peculiar property of gathering nitrogen

A good cistern with a proper filter is a
great convenience on the farm. It furnishes good soft -ater for laundry and toilet
uses, and is pure and healthful to drink also.
Where it is difficult to obtain water for
stock, a large cistern at the barn may help
in solving the water problem.
Work on country roads will soon begin.
Let us remember the good resolutions made
during the past Winter, lay out practical
methods of improving the roads under the
varied conditions, and work them out. Now
is the time to show you are in earnest about
the matter.
If ragweeds are growing in pastures in
great profusion as is so common in many
sections, they can be mowed at this time to
good advantage. They will not be nearly
so plentiful the following year, and if the
mowing is repeated a few seasons it will
practically exterminate them.
Awkward Bequest to the Sultan-
A Brussels correspondent states that the
text translated from the Arabic of a petition submitted by the Mohommedan functionaries in Egypt to the Sultan on the
occasion of the visit of the Khedive to Con.
stantinople, in favour of British evacuation,
is published. Tbe petition, after eulogising
the Sultan, continues as follows;���" And

in submitting that the foreigners have oome

and with periodically reiterated promises to

The business man was for going ahead.
" Pardon me,'' repeated tbo tramp,
"but I understand there is a financial

"Yoi, there is," said the business m an,
surprised at this form of appeal.
" I had heard so," laid the tramp, " but
I disbelieved it, for I havo been told that

" Well, its true now, whether you believe it or not," remarked the business man,

Although, writes H. D, Gill, the celebrated
Veterinary Surgeon, according to the dis-
tionary, one oi the definitions of a jockey
is " a man who rides a horse race," there
are other definitions which describe a jockey as "a cheat; oue who deceives or takes
undue advantage in trade." Other definitions of the word are " to cheat; to trick;
to jostle by riding against." All horse
dealers are not absolutely dishonest, but
there is certainly a very large proportion
of men whose business is to sell horses, or
to make money out of them in races, who
do engage in very questionable practices in
order to advance their Interests. The ethical philosophy of the horse-trader may be
summed up in the saying, "your eyes are
your cheat,'' meaning tint you musl use
your own judgment in a "horse deal" and
not believe everything he tells you.
Horses are " doctored up" not only for
the purposes of sale, but for racing
put-poses, not always, or very often lor
thc better class of races, but for the hundreds ot competitions that take phiceat stale
and county fairs and on private racing
grounds in the rural districts. These remarks 1 shall make, therefore, about
remedying the defects of horses will apply
not only to horse dealers engaged in selling
and trading horses, but to the jockeys of
the turf ; because it is often the case that
a very poor animal, of good stock, can
with the assistance of artificial methods
win or lose a race. He may die half an
hour after the contest but if lie comes in a
winner liis owner will be satisfied.
If a horse has a chronic lameness in
either foot the jockey can inject into the
foot a solution of cocaine whioh, for the
time being, will render the horse sound ;
that is, it will dull the sensibility to pain
for from half an hour to an hour ami a half
and the horse will act as it he was sound.
Another method in a case liko this is to
sever the nerves of the foot, there being
two nerves, one on cach side of the foot.
This deprives the lower part of the limb of
all sensation and the horse will go sound
for perhaps a year when the nerves will
form together again.
Foundered horses are made sound by
nerving them in the manner just described,
and keeping them in a soaking tub or mud-
box. By this method the inllainnution is
allayed for a day. In railroad car stables
they have a series of mud-stalls for foundered and sore-footed horses and in whicli
twenty can stand at a time. One day lliey
work them and the next day they put them
in this box. If lhe animals were worked
two consecutive days they would lie so sore
footed from traveling over the stones that
they would be unfit for use. Such horses are
generally shod with as heavy a shoe as they
can possibly carry, because the heavier the
iron the lighter the concussion of lho foot ou
the ground. It is on the same principle as if I
put a sheet-iron on your knee; a good blow
would break your kneo, but ii 1 put an
anvil on your knee aud hit a heavy blow
on that it wonld not hurt you. For tound-
crcd horses that come down with the heel
first they uso a rock-shoe, having a roller
motion, so that when the heel strikes the
foot will roll instead of striking the pavement abruptly.
There is no such thing as chest pounder.
The trouble commonly called by that name
is due to the wasting away of the muscles,
on account of atrophy or insufficient use of
the limb, caused by lameness in the foot,
At horse sales and races before the animal is brouehl out ho is made to appear
"lively." Before he is taken from the
stable a man, having saturated his finger
with turpentine or capsicum, will insert it
at the lower extremity of the elimenlary
canal. This will have the effect of making
the horse carry his tail in very line shape.
It makes him "lively" simply on account of
the pain lhe agent causes.
If a horse has a spavin before lie is brought
out he is jostled about for a while. If a
horse is troubled wiih spavin the first few
steps or movements ho makes are very lame
and labored, but when be is onco in action
be becomes gradually better. Anyone may
be always suspicious of a horse if a man
cracks a whip over him and makes him
"dance around" iu the stall. This is done
for the purpose of limbering the horse up,
especially if he has a spavin.
The leopard may not bo ablo to chango
his spots, but a good jockey can take an
animal and make Iiim a horso of another
color. He will use nitrate of silver (peroxide
of hydrogen) to bleach different parts of the
body so as to make a team match. Suppose
you have a team of sorrels, one had a silver
tail and mane and the othcr had not, The
jockey would blench tho tail and mane of
the latter. If a star was wanted in the forehead he could putil there or ptoduoe for
yon a white nose, one or more white
legs, bleaching thcni so as to mnko them
match. If a horse's tail is nol big enough
or symmetrical he can switcli in some false
tail just as the ladies do with their hair.
A horse will show his age by the hollow-
ness over his eyes. In such a case the jockey
will introduce a liltle tube and, by blowing
ill air, will cause tho hollows to pull' up,
und if tho chest or shoulder of a horse is
utrophled���what is known as swecney of the
shoulder���he will introduce a little tubo
and blow up the skin. This condition in a
horse can always ho delected by pulling tho
skin whicli will crackle under the touch ;
it will not have the solid feeling of Ilesh.
In regard to teeth young horses, naturally, havo what ia known as " cups," excavations, marked black, which disappear when
they becomeoldor.heingwornoff. The jockey,

But there ,iru horse jockey tricks especially oonneoted with the races, Iii a running
race suppose a trainer wantB his horse to
gooii jockey and, just betore the annual goes
to the post, he will give him a pailful of
water. This of course, causes the horse,
before he goes veiy far, to feel troubled
about his wind and, iu jockey parlance, he
is called "a deal horse." The jockey is
not supposed to know anything about this
proceeding. A pail of water, or some anodyne like opium will be sufficient to make
a horse " iogey" and lazy and cause him to
lose a race which he would otherwise win.
Sometimes a pebble or a nail will be put
under a horse's shoe to cause him to go lame
so that the owner can s:ratch him. Of
course the stewards of a racing club do not
allow a horse to be scratched unless there
is a very good excuse. But if an owner
docs not want his horse to run he can put
some foreign body under the shoe, or tie a
utriiig around the ankle pretty tight,which
causes the leg to swell, and the horse to be
lame the next morning.
An injection of hydro-chlorate of cocaine
is often put iuto horse-; to make them run
faster and undoubtedly it does have that
effect. This is lbe same medicine, the
leaves of which Weston, the pedestrian,
used to chew when he ma.de his long journeys. To show the efficiency of this trick
.' will say that tho preparation was once
introduced into a horse called "Spartacus."
He was a very well-bred animal but wind-
broken. A half a dram of this solution was
introducedhyberdeimically. A strong man
was put on the horse's back with orders to
jog him until the half mile posl and then
let him go for a mile. The horse went along
easily for the first half mile then took the
bit and ran steadily for five miles, the
jockey bcingobligcd, fromsheerexhaustiou,
to fall off. The horse was finally stopped
hy a row of men .standing across the track.
The effect of this injection generally lasts
for about half an hour. It is used a great
At the horse-killing establishment on
Long Island, I once experimented with this
medicine. A number of old horses were
brought in and two of them dropped from
sheer exhaustion half a mile from the establishment. They could not make the
animals move. We gave each of them an
injection of cocaine, and, in five minutes,
they got on their feet and not only appeared strong bul actually ran and appeared
very lively. This illustrates the stimulating effect of the drug.
Electricity is also used to increase a
horse's speed. A jockey will carry a
battery attached to a belt around his body,
the conductors passing to the spurs on each
foot. The application of the spurs to the
side of the animal completes the circuit
and transmits to the horse's body the
electrical impulse and induces the animal to
greater speed. Several jockeys have been
discovered using this appliance.
Running horses are nerved for lameness
in tlie foot. They are troubled with joint
and tendon troubles, particularly the
ligaments and tendons of the front limbs.
"Breaking down" on the race track is a
rupture of the suspensory ligament of either
one or both the front feet.
In riding a race the jockeys will jostle
one another and cut one another down. A
jockey will try to throw his companion
over the fence by putting his foot under the
foot of the other jockey and lifting him off
the saddle.
They will foul one another by running ir
regularly across in front. When they think
a jockey is going to hurl them, if the jockey uses his whip in his right hand, another
will come up so close to bim as to make it
impossible for him to strike tho horse with
thc whip.
One or two jockeys in a race will also combine to defeat another hy what is called
placing him " in a pocket," i.e. keeping him
behind and giving him no chance to get
through. Because to do so he would
be obliged to go around the horses,
which would, very often, throw the norse
off his stride, which the horse would be unable to catch again until he had covered considerable ground,
It is very common for jockeys to make
fake starts. They will purposely make a
number of those to tire out their adversaries. There are generally some hard-mouthed horses in a race and during these false
starts they run away for a quarter or half
a mile; becomo tired and thereby reduce
their chance of winning. Jockeys always
try to get the advantage of one another iu
the start. It often occurs that a starter is-
obliged to fine every jockey in the race,
particularly the short distance race where
a good start is an important factor.

Thai (a the in till Crime of Wlilcll <>lil
Mrs. Sliuini of Princeton. >. .1.. Standi
A Trenton, N. .1., special says :���The
spectacle of a gray-haired woman on trial
for her life is presented in the old Mercer
County Court House in tins city. The prisoner is Mrs. Martha C. Siiann of Princeton,
the mother of a family oi grown children,
all of whom are showing li.ial affection for
her iu the terrible ordeal through which she
is passing. The accusation against lur is that
she has poisoned her tffenty-year-old son,
John F. Shann, in order '.o get a litlle over
$2,100, the amount of three insurance
policies ou his life. According to the
Slate's allegation, she procured '.he boy's
death by the administration o; bichloride
of mercury, giving it to him in his drink
and food in such a manner as to rob him of
his strength gradually, and to deceive all
about him touching the nature of his illness.
The youth died on April 18 last. Mrs.
Shann's husband died last November under
circumstances that were considered peculiar
and this second death in the family set all
the tongues of rumor going in Princeton.
The boy would, nevertheless, have been
quietly buried, had nol lhe shocking an-
j noiincement come two days after his ueaih
that he had been disembowelled by persons
unknown. This had the effect of stirring
lho local authorities into action, and the
result of au investigation and a coroner's
inquest was thc arrest of the the boy's
mother on the charge of murder.
The Irial began to-day. When the examination of witnesses began, Reuben Van
Seliiiis, a boarder at Mrs. Shann's,
told of Frank Borden, a life insurance
agent sending a note to Mrs. Shann on tho
night her son died, which apparently gave
her the impression his insurance company
was going to make an investigation of his
About !i o'clock the next morning Mrs.
Shann aroused tho witness and informed
him that three men had been iu the house
and had gone away. They had been up
stairs in John's room, she declared, ami she
was afraid "they had done something." He
went up stairs with Mrs. Shann into the
room where the corpse lay, and saw that a
covering which bad been arranged ever the
body was stained with blood.
There were no other blood stains visible.
The witness expressed the belief that
"something had been done," and went back
to bed. Mrs. Shann had live beanie*-* be-
siJes him, and he thought they were 11 at
home that night.
Mabel Shann was now called to the slaud.
Sh; said she slept with her mother the ni^ht
that her brother's remains were violated.
She had nol heard her mother rise. Tin
movements of her mother and Van Salons hat
roused her. She called out, " What ia tin
matter!' and her mother replied, "Nothing,
be quiet." She called out. again, " Mamma,
what is the matter':" and her mother entering the room, and, sea ting herself upon the
bed, told her this story : That three men
had come to the ho..se and rung lhe bell.
She had admitted them. They wore long
overcoats with the collaiB turned up. Tbey
had ou storm hats; and inquired if she had
a corpse in the bouse. She told the men
her son was dead, and they demanded to be
shown to the corpse, bhe objected, saying
the hour was late. Two of the men pushed
her aside and ascended lhe stairs. She
tried to follow th men upstairs, but the
third man prevented her. When they went
away, her mother said, she kucw they had
done something to .Johu.
Mabel testified further that she and hei
mother had nursed dohn, both administer-
medicine lo him. He was sick about six
weeks. When the witness testified at the
Coroner's inquest that her mother alono
had nursed bim she was mistaken.
Mabel said she had often cooked her
blether's food and given it to him personally. She had neither seen or heard anything
of the three mysterious men who had come
in the dead of the night and disembowelled
her brother. Sne only knew what her
mother had told her about the affair. The
witness was not cross-examined.
Tlie last witness of tiie day was J Watson
Shann, an undertaker, of Kingston, N. .1.
He is Mrs.Shann's ousin. She h\d asked
him to take charge of the holy. Although
it was decomposing fas', Mrs. Shann would
not have the remaini embalmed, It was
when he had gone lo the house to perform
his final duties that Mr*, Shann had told
him tho story of the three men and their
doings. He saw tlie blood on the covering
over the bo.lv.

A new vegetable is about to be introduced
to the people of the United States through
lho Department of Agriculture. I: is tho
root of the calla lily, which, according to
Science Sittings, resembles somewhat in
appearance the ordinary Irish tuber, with
lhe addition of a few fibrous roots that have
nothing to do with the qualities of the article as an esculent,   it is more elongated,
and when out ths intorlrr is a trifle more

faotory, showing undoubtedly that as
tho trees increase in  size, they will
become prolific bearers.    The particular varieties that will sueeeeil best
in this particular place must be a
matter of experiment! tbe only way
to decide that point  quickly is to

Don't Fret-
In this day ar.il age of progressive ideas,
the good housewife who reads can hardly
pick up a paper that does not contain one
or more little sermons that seem to have
been written especially for her, or at least
are very applicable to her case. Home preach
on neatness, some on economy ; others lay
down laws for the health, whicli, if followed by any except the most robust, would
result in death in six months ; others still
would teach us how to train our children ;
our children the rules are for, you understand, not theirs, if they have any. If a
woman is inclined to be sensitive, she is
overcome with a sense of .her weakness, and
completely over-powered with the feeling
that sheis not living her life as she should,
that in none of these things does she at
all apposch the standard of perfection set
Now I want to have my say, too, anil will
take for my text these two little words:
" Don't fret." In the Iirst place, don't fret
because you cannot do and be all things in
one, For instance, if you find, after trying,
that you cannot be a perfect housekeeper,
and at the same time a good iiomeniaker,
then wake up your mind which you will be
before you go any farther.
Perhaps you will say there should be no
difference, Maybe so, but I assure you
there is, as practiced. A perfect specimen
of a housewife might have all the good
qualities that go lo make the Iiomeniaker,
and be a good housekeeper, too, but perfect
specimens of any class are rare ; so if you
decide that the health and happiness of
your loved ones is of more importance than
a few specks of dirt, then don't let it fret
you when some plain spoken person preaches
you a sermon from the text, "Cleanliness is
next to godliness." .Next to it, remember,
but never ahead of it. And I firmly believe there are people in this world so wedded to their idol, cleanliness, that they run
great risks of crowding out godliness entirely. Childless wives who bemoan their
loneliness, who yet would give but meager
welcome to the child that came endowed
with restless hands to aoil or mar the beauty
of tlieir surroundings. Mistaken notion !
lror what can outweigh the love of a little
Few women who pride themselves on
being orderly, and who take great pains to
inform you of it make pleasant companions
on close acquaintance. They cannot carry
out all tlieir pet theories, without, making
someone uncomfortable. Usually it is their
own immediate family that gets the full
benefit of their orderliness. It was my misfortune to board with one of these very
neat persons one summer. I do not know
that she was an exception at all, but she
took for her motto, "Order is heaven's first
law,'' and she lived up to the very letter of
it, until any place was better than home to
her whole family, Her good man could
smoke his pipe nowhere but in the back
kitchen. Iter boy could wear his boots no
farther. The sitting-room curtains could
not be raised on a sunny day for fear of
fading the carpet, nor the door left open
for tear of Hies. The parlor was thoroughly cleaned in the spring anil again in
the fall, and in the meantime had not
been opened to company except on two occasions.
I'gh 1 II gives me the blues yet to recall
that summer. Take my advice ; be neat in
a general way, but do not put it- ahead of
every thing else. In short do not follow any
" fad" until you estrange all your friends,
and don't fret if you fail to attain the perfection you see or think you see in others.
It hardly seems reasonable for anyone to set
down rules for another to follow. In housework, if anywhere in the world, every one
should bc a law.unto herself. For instance
what is economy for one is not for another.
Some will tell you that it is poor economy
to make rag carpets, but my experience is
to the contrary. If you have a family of
children, the rags are sure to accumulate,
and I know of no bettor use they can be
put to. Rag carpets are much nicer than j
bare floors, for no matter how niecly they
may be painted or stained, if there are boys
around, Iheir noise on the bare floors will
distract a nervous person. Then don't fret
if they are getting shabby, and don't take
them up until you can replace them. Don't
f I Ct because you cannot do as others do. Vou
have a perfect right to your own methods,
and if you should once Iry to follow out all
the ideas advanced by different writers you
would certainly Und in the " .Slough of
Despond." Do the best you can in your
sphere and with your circimsl ances, looking
only to Him who has given us our life work

taken carefully out with long-handled

the syrup is boiled and skimmed till it is

���small pieces, rejecting everything which is
not entirely perfect. A stone jar is to be
used, the bottom being covered with a layer of granulated sugar, then a layer of the
cut-peaches, packing closely and alternating
layers of sugar and peaches till the jar is
filled, tlie top layer being of sugar. The
jar is then covered, and thick paper is carefully pasted over, so as to exclude the air.
This preparation will keep perfectly for sev.
eral months, it is claimed, and may be used
for pies,rolled pudding or sauce. Two factors
are imperative, however : there must be no
taint of decay in or about any particle of
the fruit when it is put up, and the air must
be carefully excluded.
Peach Marmalade.���The peaches, having been peeled, stoned and weighed, are
placed in a porcelain-lined kettle and
heated slowly, so as to extract all the
juice possible. It is necessary to stir them
often from the bottom, and for this use a
wooden spoon is best���never use an iron
spoon. Increase the heat gradually till the
juice conies to a boil, which is allowed to
continue for forty-five minutes, stirring
frequently during the time. The sugar is
then added, allowing twelve ounces for
each pound of fruit, and the whole is boiled
for five minutes, all of the scum which
rises being carefully removed. Then add
the juice of a lemon for each three pounds
of peaches, and the water iu which a quarter part of the kernels have been treated
as described for preserved cut peaches.
The whole is then to be stewed for ten
minutes more, being stirred meantime till
it becomes a smooth paste, when it is taken
from the fire and put into jars or tumblers
being covered when cold with brandied,
paper. In place of the lemon juice,
a ripe pineapple may be peeled and out
fine into the kettle of peaches at the
start, and will give an admirable flavor.

A Battle Creek special says :������Wednesday afternoon Robert Case' and Joseph
Spanker, two young men from .Saginaw,
came to this city and were captured near
the Chicago ami Grand Trunk railway by
tramps and taken to the woods on the batiks
ot the Kalamazoo, where they were robbed
of their watches and what money lhey had
on theii persons. The former lost a gold
watch and the latter a silver one. They
were on their way to Chicago. They were
detained as prisoners in the woods by the
tramps until evening, when Case got away
from them and notified the officers. There
wcre 10 tramps in the gang. This particular piece of woods is the general headquarters for tramps. It is in the vicinity
of the Chicago and Grand Trunk yards
where all trains start from, and they secrete
themselves there until night, when they
steal their ride on freight trains. As many
as 50 congregate here at one time.
A squad of police went up last night and
arrested several of the gang. Case ami
Spanker could not identify but one of them,
a young bootblack from Kalamazoo by the
name of John Kavanaugh. The others
were discharged and Kavanaugh held for
trial. Kavanaugh claims that the fellows
who robbed the young men were four thugs
from Detroit, who had been to the Sturgis
races, and that they held up several men
aud robbed them while there. The tramp
question is becoming more serious every

A Strange Story-
An old woman has just died in a Vienna
hospital whose history is worth recording.
The Vienna corresponden ofthe DailyNews
tells us that when this woman was twenty-
live years old, and had been Imppilj married three years, her husband suddenly disappeared, and though he was sought by the
police and advertised for, no Iracoof him
was found, Thirty years after the disappearance of her husband Magdalene Wild-
hofcr was entitled by the Austrian law to
have her husband tloolarod dead and to
marry again. He was again advertised for,
and as he did not come she married one who
had long beer, her suitor. After two years'
happiness the first husband, who was sixty-
eight years old at the time, returned, and
the woman did not hesitate to lei, him take
his old place, and had a judicial separation
from her second husband, who perfectly understood that he must give way to 'prior
rights and withdraw. Fran Magdalene
nursed the first husband faithfully until he
died a few years ago, and she never hoard
of her second husband again.

men Wore tlie Victors,
Those who have been inclined to underrate the dangers of a war between France
md England during '.he last few weeks,mav
lo well to ponder on au incideut reported
in a despatch from Bangkok. It lias for
iOtne lime been known that the feeling ot
animosity entertained by the French against
the Knglish is emphasized among the
French civil ollicers at Saigon, and among
lhe ollicers and seamen of the French licet
stationed at Siam. Amid such inflammable
material it needed but a spark to cause a
blaze. Such a spark was near beiugapplied
theother day, when, itseems, the French
gunboat Lyon steamed down, with crew at
quarters and guns out.upon a British cruiser which happened to Iw lying outside the
blockade line. Ve are lohl that the British
Captain's OOolnesS aud prudence averted an
8rmed conflict. But suppose that he naturally exasperated at the threatening demonstration, had opened lire on the French
gunboat and destroyed her. It is probable
that, the rest of the French lleet, wrought
to fury by the s[ eclacle, would iiave combined to overpower
and thus two countries would have been
plunged in war; lor, although the French
would have been in the wrong, as having
begun the contest, no French Ministry willing to apologize and offer a proper indemnity could have held office for an hour.
This is to say, a collision which,under other-
circumstances, could have been arrested at
the outset, or have been afterward explained away, might have had disastrous con-
sequenoes, owing to the enmity with which
Englishmen are viewed by Frenchmen.
For such traditional aversion there is ample ground ; indeed, it may be doubted
whether any country ever had more cause
to dislike England, Not even yet have
Frenchmen entirely forgotten the Hundred
Years' War, during which the greater part
of their country was laid waste by the Knglish invaders, who actually had their sovereign crowned King of Frauce in Paris.
For centuries England was mistress of provinces that wcre deemed jewels of the
French Crown : and she kept a foothold on
French soil at Calais until tbe middle of the
sixteenth century. Throughout the wars of
religion in France, the part played by the
English, although justified by sympathy for
their fellow Protestants, could not fail to
deeply embitter the Catholic majority.
Again, England, tinder William III. and
Anne, was the soul of the coalition that
thwarted the far-reaching plans of Louis
XIV, It was England, too, that combined
with Austria to defend the Austrian Netherlands against MarshalSaxe ; and she was
an ally nf Pi ussia at the time when Frede- \
the Great defeated the French at Rosbaoh,
Twice she annihilated the French navy,
namely, in the Seven Years' War and in the
wars against Napoleon.   She drove.
Irom Spain, and even French historians
agree that the Emperor's downfall is attributable mainly to her implacable hostility.
It was at the hands of an English Genera!
that he met irreparable defeat at Waterloo, and it was in an English island that he
died a captive. In 1830 France wanted
Belgium, and might have got it had not
England interfered. A little later Louis
Philippe wished to marry one of liis sens to
the young Queen of Spain, Isabella II. ;
but here, too, England intei posed a veto.
If, finally, the loss of territory be account-1
a sullicient warrant for national enmity,
France has much stronger reasons ior haling
England .ban for hating Germany The
Germans have recovered Alsace and a por-
tien of Lorraine, countries which were
wrested from them by forco : the so-called
Three Bishoprics about tli ��� middle of the
sixteenth century, nnd a part of Alsace as
kite as the close of the seventeenth, France
still keeps her grasp on dial, cts that were
formerly inoluded in the German empire ;
-.s, for instance, Franche Comte and a fra ���
tion of Lorraine. But whal do her recent
losses in this quarter amount to, compared
with the splendid colonial ei ipire of which
the foundations were skilfully laid in
America and India, and of which she has
been bereft by England? No wo.ider that
patriotic Frenchmen, looking back over tiie
course of history, are tilled with grief and
wrath as they recognize how their country's
every effort at colonial expansion and
European ascendancy has necn blocked by
tlieir inexorable island neighbor.
Such is the exasperating record of the
relations between France and England ever
since the French people began to I e a consolidated and ambitious nation. Scarcely
less significant is the circumstance that,
amid the
mistress of Egypt and of the Suez Canal, is
not the less galling to Frenchmen because
lhey have only themselves to blame for
their exclusion from their former place of
authority at Cairo.
These are the causes of the deep and
seemingly inextinguishable suspicion aad
aversion with which England is regarded
by the mass of the French people. The
existence of such feelings rendered the task
of the Dupuy Cabinet in the Siamese affair
one of extraordinary delicacy and difficulty.
l'he slightest encouragement on the part of
the French Government, or even the absence
>f peremptory orders to observe the utmost,
caution, might have led to a conflict nf
French and Knglish war vessels in Siamese
waters i and we have seen that, as it was,
a collision was averted only through the
self-control and prudence of a British ollicer.

of European politics which have repeatedly made friends to-day of those who were

lhe same room about si; feet from each
oilier. Only one of th iso jet is lighted,
and the other turm I on full. If the
burners aro of lhe regulated kind the glass
globes must be rec. od, All this, of
course, must bc done I re the experiment
ia made.
When everything isrea ly, the two hands
of the person operating are formed into a
IcHow around tho lighted jet, bringing
them as close together a> possible. A
moment later, and just as rapidly as possible, the ban-Is, without separating them,
are held over the unllghted jot, enough of
tho illuminated gas being carried along to
set fire to tho second jet, If the first trial
should prove a failure, tl e experimonter need
not be discouraged, Tl - hands have either
been held too far apart ��� tho pi ensure of
gas was nol great enough at the proper
moment. Several trials will invariably
result in success.
