workmen. He was snffering from aonte
n.eumatism and was quite helpless. J.

prise of the inhabitants, it being unusual to aee oattle on the streets io midwinter. Tbey were eventually sent to

the cause of several snowslides and washouts on the C.P.B. both east and west.
Small slides ocoured at the summit of

crossing of the Illioilliwaet, washouts
and nnid slides at Lytton and Spozzum,
few miles west of Kamloops, and trains
bave been delayed in oonsequence. But
tbe greatest delay was caused by deep
suow and drifts at Swift Current on tbe
plains. Friday night's mail from the
east was delivered here on Sunday, and
Saturday's and Sunday's mails from the
west reached here Monday.
A meeting of tbe Selkirk Snowshoe

slide, to whioh all are cordially invited.
The oommittee hope to see a large turnout, both from the station and lower
town. The first snowshoe tramp will
take place on Monday evening, starting

A Coming Health Resort.
Tbe new hotel being erected at ihe
Hot Springs will supply a long-felt
want. For several summers past, in
fact ever sinoe the medioinai properties
of the waters beoame known, visitors
have had to pnt up with tent life and
accommodations of tbe most primitive
oharaoter. Every year the number of
visitors has been larger than that of the
preceding one, nntil tho hot springs on
Upper Arrow Lake have beoome quite
famous throughout the provinoe and
even beyond its southern and eastern
boundaries. The hotel is being built
by Capt. Sanderson on an eminence
abont 100 yards from the lake shore and
within a quarter of a mile of the springs.
It will afford aooommodation for fifty
guests, and will certainly be full for
six months of the year. The water will
be brongbt from the springs in pipes,
so that invalids too delicate to walk may
be able to take the healthgiving baths
indoors. The water at the springs is
rather too hot for bathing purposes,
being 120 degrees Fabreneit. Soores of
people in this neighborhood are able to
give tbe highest testimony as to the
enrative properties of the waters, and
say that they excel those of the world-
famed hot springs at Banff. The Arrow
Lake hot springs are beautifully situated
on the east shore about twelve miles
from the head of the lake, and it will
not require muoh of a prophet to predict that within a year or two a great
publio health resort will spring np at
tbis point. Tbe hotel will be opened
about tbe middle of April.

Bro, S. H. Ruitiiu, D.D G.41., of Douald; W.M. Bro. W. Newman of D-mnld
was also present. After tbe installation
the brethren constituted themselves a
oommittee for tbe reception of their invited guests, who numbered about 70,
The "Al Home" was held io Bourne s
Hsll, which udjoins the lodge room, ami
the W.M. opeued the proceedings io a
neat speed). He sai,l that on former
occasions they had celebrated their installations privately, but this year they
deoided on inviting their friends to help
tbem enjoy the occasion. He was very
happy to see so many present, and,
speaking on behalf of the lodge, he gave
them all a cordial welcome and Loped
they would thoroughly enjoy themselves.
It had been intended to give tbem a
musical treat tbat evening, bnt owing
to tbe irregularity of tlie trains the expected talent bad not arrived. They
would therefore have tu fall back on
local talent, which was, as they all
knew, second to none iu the district.
A short programme followed, the contributors being J. F. Ablin, pianoforte
seleotion ; Ouy Barber, Bong, " The
Star;" W. J. Lee, "The song lhat
reaohed my heart," for whioh he received an encore aud respouded with
"Mrs. Grogrm's Baby;" C. E. Shaw,
dramatic recitation, "The Miser;" W.
F. Crage, song, "Killaloo;" R. W. Northey, recitation, "Tbe Pledge at Plunky
Point;" G.Barber, "Tbe tar's farewell."
Supper was aunouuoed at 10.30, and
the oompany adjonrned to the anteroom
where au excellent spread awaited tbem.
The oaterers were Messrs. Lewis Bros.,
who are, perhaps, unsurpassed in that
liue in the interior. The menn comprised roast goose, roast turkey, chicken,
ham, jellies, pies, cake, tea, ooffee and
all the etceteras tbat go to make np a
first-class meal.
liter supper danoing was tbe order
of tbe evening, and the Masonic brethren, in tbeir dress suits, white ties and
kids, shone conspicuous among a crowd
of well-dressed men and women. The
grand march and i-urade was a brilliant
spectacle to the onlookers and a souroe
of great enjoyment to the participators.
Conspicuous among tbe visitors waa Mr.
Dau Alton, oue of tbe best-known dancers in tbe mountains. Mr. aud Mrs.
Thos. Bichardaon, of Illecillewaet, were
also present, but want of space forbids
our giving a list of names.
Dancing waa kept np with great spirit
until the " wee sma' hours," and everybody went borne well pleased with the
excellent reoeption given by the brethren of Kooteuay Lodge.
A little soreuesB has been felt hy some
who did not get an invitation aud therefore did not attend. One lady, Mrs.
Clark, reoeived her invitation Tuesday
morning, the day "after the ball." The
postmark shows the date of mailing to
have been January 12th-last Friday.
Where bad the letter lain for four days?
We are informed that an iuviUtiou sent
to Mrs. Steed met with a similar fate.
The clerk at the post-office is blamed,
but perhaps he oan exoulpate himself.
Obstructing a Road.
The adjonrned case of Peterson vs.
Long oame before Justices Bourne and
Fraser on Thursday. At the previous
hearing witnesses for complainant stated
tbat defendant had dug a trenoh aoross
the road after oompiainant bad taken
his sleigh np the mountain side, and
that it would bave been dangerous to
attempt to pass tbe trenoh on his return
down the hill with a load of wood. Tbe
complainant stated that the trench was
12ft. long, 3ft. wide and 2%ft. deep, but
one of defendant's witnesses swore that
it waB only 9 inches deep. Complainant
brought the aotion as ale 'ease to ascertain if defendant had any r,, lit to prevent tbe publio use of tbe road, whioh
passes in front of Mr. Long's brewery.
From other evidence it wus proved lhat
tbe road was need for hauling wood
from tbe mountains before the brewery
was built, It was also proved that Mr,
Long bad no deeds to show his title to
tbe land on whioh the brewery stands,
bnt is only a squatter, The magistrates
decided that there had been no obstruction and dismissed the osse, complainant to pay tbe costs of the oourt.
Probably tbu summons would never
have been taken ont but for the faot
that Mr. Long said that "any other
teamster in tbe town might bring down
wood, but uot Peterson." This was
understood to mean tbat he would not
allow Peterson to use tbe road- But in
his evidenoe be explained that he meant
"any teamster hut Peterson oould drive
over euoh a slight obstruction." Further
on Mr. Long said he did not consider
tbo road a publio oue and that Peterson
had no right thero. Thin is somewhat
eontradiotory to his statoment that "auy
teamster but Peterson oould pass," because if Peterson bad no right there, certainly no one else bad. As tho road
leads to nowhere thu question is not of
vital importance to the oommanity, but
Mr. Petersou is quite within his rights
iu bringing a test oase.

The house ia quiet enough now. Some of
the men have gone to tho smoking-room,
,��nd all the women have gone to their beds.
" We got Mr. O'More," says she demurely. " Ha took U3 to the supper-room, and

there. Mr? Adare, passing Terry's room
glances in, and, seeing the girl no farther
advanced towards rest than tho shedding
of her ball-gown, the getting into her
dressing-gown, and the brushing out of her
long and lovely hair, seats herself in the
nearest chair and begins an exhaustive conversation about the events of thc evening.
" Rabble won't be up for another hour,"
(ays Bhe, alluding to hor husband, who isin
the smoking-room with his guests, poor
man, though he would far rather be in bed;
" and you can't possibly finish your undressing under ten minutes; so I'll sit here
and talk to you."
And talk ahe docs, as gayly and sleepleas-
ly as when she was nineteen, though now I
suppose she must be thirty-four at all
events. In the middle of quite an exciting
episode that has the woman in rod for its
heroine, a gentle tap sounds at the door.
"Come in," cries Terry, gayly, who
nndor the charm of Fanuy'B higb spirits
has entirely recovered her own ; and, the
door opening, Miss Anson, still in full ball
costume, stands revealed on the threshold.
"You, Geraldine, and not even undressed !" says Mrs. Adaro, in great
amazement. " What have you been doing,
you silly girl ?"
things,���a pie in especial. He is very amusing isn't he!'
"Very!" What is there in her tono that
has changed his from kind if indifferent attention to something that might almost be
called auger? "Aud so you got your supper at last ?"
"Oh, I did! Miss O'More is still finishing hers���with hor cousin. You know he
is so amusing."
"Yes," says 'Trefusis, It is the samo
answer, in a sense. He bids her good-night
again.and continues his way. Mias Anson,
in the shelter of her door-way,watches him.
Is lie going tn his room, or down-stairs!
Down-stairs, certainly.
He turns the handle of the supper-room
door with undue violence, and walks in.
The room is enveloped in gloom on all
sides (it is a big rooir), save whero Teny
and Laurence are sitting, about llio middle
oi the table. Laurence, indeed, is sitting
on the table, close,���very close���to Terry,
who is eating something oil' a plato with
evident relish.
It is lobster salad, as Trefusis sees to his
disgust. First a galantine, a pie, was it ?���
what was it that odious girl had told him ?
and tlica lobster salad !   No jjirl with a
,.,   -,,���     , ��� ���.     , I conscience would do such a thing as that.
"Looking for you," says Miss Anson,  she must, indeed, be perfectly heartless to
frankly.      The fact is, I couldn t undress j enjoy ioljster sala(1 at this -^ of lhe morn.

; know,"   giving  way to  rather shamed
mirth, " but I am dying of hunger."
" Oh, do you know, so am I," cries
Terry. " I didn't eata bit of supper; and
now I remember a pie that was at tho side
of the table, near the top . I wonder if it
is all gone."
���' "Little gorumande!" cries Fanny.
" There, run down, you two, as quickly as
yon can, and get something to eat. Time
is flying remember, and there ia very little
of it left for your beauty sleep j and all
those people coming to-morrow, too 1 If
you hurry, I dare say the lighta won't be
out in the supper-room yet, though 1 muat
say Patrick is unrivalled at putting out
everything at a second's notice. Take a
candle with you, and light one of tho lamps
I if you find ho has been at it again. There
go I"
., She stops Terry, however, for a moment.
��� " Let me tie back your hair," says she,
catching up a pale-blue ribbon on the table.
With this sho draws the girl's soft lovely
locks into a loose binding behind her head,
���such long locks, that fall far below her
waist. Fanny, having tied the ribbon,
turns her around.
" Oh, how absurd !" says she. "You
look like a baby,-a littlo thing of fifteen."
Sho accompanies them to the door and
Bees them safely down-stairs.
" There are a few men still in the smoking-room," Bays she, " victimizing Robbie,
bul if you go delicately, like Agag, they
wou'thtar you."
Thus she dismisses them with her blessing, but wiih hardly sound advice, however, as they have no sooner reached the
lowest step than they seo Larry coming
across the hall.
"I don't believe in visions," says that
young mau advancing, " and I hopoit isn't
D. T.   But what aro you doing here ?"
He addresses himself to Terry, His eyes,
indeed, are fastened ou her in open admira-
ing, and after all that has passed between
them.   There lies the crux of the. whole
thing.   After all that has passed!
For a moment they do not heed his entrance, and he has time to look at ber; to
wonder whothet the feeling he has for her
is love or hatred ; to toll himaelf that he
was mad when he decided on marrying this
wilful,ill-tempered, beautiful Irishcoquetto,
and then to swear to himself doggedly that
nothing under heaven shall induce him to
give her up, until she dismisses him.
Here Larry looka up and sees him.
" More visions," he cries, though perhaps
not quite so heartily, so lisrhtly, this time.
"Terry, hero comes Trefusis."
Terry starts moat unmistakably. " Yes.
You!" says she, peering at him through

" No," aays Trefusis,ooolly. He advances
to the table, draws a chair to it, and seats
himaelf leisurely. " But I heard you and
O'Moro were having some supper here, so I
thought I should like to join you."
'���How good of you !" aays Terry, with
an audacious little sneer.
Trefuais oasts a quick glance at her.
Amazement ia in hia heart. He had
thought to bring down Nemesis upon her
head by his sudden entry here ; where she
is supping secretly with her cousin, at au
hour when all other members of the household are in bed, or, at all events, supposed
to be there ; here, in this room, at an hour
when the morning light is stealing in
through every chir.k in the shutters, and
without a light save that of one weakling
of a lamp, that is evidently at its laat
breath for want of oil, aud whose glimmer
resembles nothing go much aa the farthing
rushlight we have all seen���in imagination.
Yet she has the audacity to sneer at
him,���to put Iiim in tlie v.r.ong, ���to remind him by that aneer that she haa not
forgiven what ho Baid to her at their late
encounter. Yet what had that quarrel
been about?   Surelv about tho man w*(h

"It isn't, a bit later than it was a minute

" You swear to me one moment that you

dead, lifeless, without a movement.
" It looked ao. What wero you saying

" Kven if I remembered, I certainly
should not feel myself bound to ttll you,"
answers she, calmly.
" No? Perhaps, if you did remember,"���
the very suppression of all outward anger
is making the anger within him a perfect
storm of wrath, aud is fatally destroying
his judgment,���" you would not dare to

Terry draws her hand out of his", with a
sharp gesture. She s'eps back from him.

with terrible contempt. " Wi th whom
then, do you talk of me and my many sins

" Yes," hurriedly, " friends. Friendship

" How friendly you were to me thia

kiud ! A friend should be kind, I think ;
but you "
" I am sorry for every word I said to you
that offended you," he replies, slowly, dis
tiuotly. In liis secret soul he is wondering
at himself: he is apologizing to her, asking
her pardon, for the sins of her own committing ! Truly he haa fallen very low.
It is a pity, perhaps that he had not so
abaBed himself somewhat earlier. The wilful
but lovely head ii now turned a liltle in his
direction ; two large eyes, soft with dewy
tears, are looking into his.

" That was not the word." He draws her
a little nearer, and she docs not resist him.
" What word was thero to describe you ?

Again she looka up at him. The unkill-
able Irish mirth iu her declares itself in the
little broken smile, that in the midst of all
her agitation and grief lights up ner eyes
and lips.
" I think you might invent one," says
she, with a glance divinely shy. She holds
back from hiin, but at last lets him press
his lips to hers, gi'ing him a dainty, un-

givss her.

The Malady of the Day���Nervouanoas-
Dr. William Erb, the famous psychologist
cf the University of Heidelberg, has just
delivered, ou the occasion of tiie anniversary of that institution, a lecture dealing
with the question why growing nervousness is oue of tho features of our century.
According to a report given by tho London
Daily News, Pro!. Erb said:
" As the nervous system represents the
basis of tho whole vital energy, it is natural
that ail the events of life must affect it,
and the great revolutions in political and
economical, in soeial and religious life, and
in scientific and artistic aims, could not fail
to have a Btrong infiuenco on the miud and
brain ot man. The most intense and common forma of nervousness are hystorica���

the nervous system has been proved by
these diseases. They only represent abnormal conditions of the mind ,md brain
Neurasthenia is a disease peculiar to the
educated classes, originating in overexertion of the brain. Overburdening of the
mind begins in liio grammar schools and is
ineroascd by the method of teaching employed by philologloally rather than pods-
logically educated master*. Added lo this,

"The trader and merchant is exposed lo

The Winnipeg "Free 1'ress" alleges that
there is in British Columbia ofiiiial circles
"a land ring that is picking the eyea out of
the proviuce." It claims that the elTorts of
settlers to get titles to lands which they
select are almost invariably forstalled by
members of thia ring, who are described as
"important men having much infiuenco
about the throne," To thii, among othcr
evils, is credited the failure of immigrants
to take up land in the provinoe. Another
drawback ia said to be the dispute between
the Dominion and Provincial governments
over the reserved lauds in the railway belt,
in consequence of which a satisfactory
title is not forthcoming from either of the
governments. Our contemporary advises
British Columbia to unearth and wipe out
its land riug, and it suggests that the two
governments should ciose their dispute.
It the Btate of things in connection with
the public lands in British Columbia is as
described by otu usually well-informed
contemporary it ia simply disgraceful, aud
a remedy cannot bo applied too Boon.
After what tho "Free Press" has Baid the
British Columbia Government will be compelled to tako action either to disprove
tho existenco of a land ring or to u pi oot it
if it really oxiata. Press strictures of this
character by a thoroughly reapectable
journal cannot be allowed to paas unnoticed.

In about twenty industries in Cincinnati

A Torontonian who believes he can make
a motor that haa none of tho disadvantage!
of the cable or trolley systems proposes to
compete for the prize oi ��30,000 offered by .
New York Btrect railway company for such
a contrivance, Ho seeka advice aa to how
ho ahall proceed in the matter. The first
thing an inventor has to accomplish if he ia
not a capitalist, ia to convince some one
who is, that he is able to do what he believes
he can. This is the initial trial of genius.
Should he succeed in procuring for the construction of models tho patenting ofthe
contrivance can follow, but otherwise tho
task is an almost hopeless one. A model
should uot be entered in a competition until
it is protoeted bypitent, procured by a reputable solicitor. An inventor who follows
these lines, and invents something, may
some day be wealthy.
Boston contains a good-sized Canadian
city. This country contributes to the Hub,
according to the United States censna of
1S0O, no less than 38,294 persons. From
the Massachusetts labour statistics it is possible to obtain some information as to the
condition of these exilea. In the tenement
house district will be found about two-
thirds of the Canadian residents. Their
principal occupations are S3 follows;
Factory hauda, GStl ; domestics, 4,008;
trado and transportation, 8,,'inO; Government and professional, 45!); labourers, 173.
Thc fact that so large a body of Canadians live in tho worst parts of Boston goes
to indicate that they are not quite so prosperous abroad as we have been led to suppose. Had they stayed at home they
would in all probability have been better
off.
Canadian apples, we are told by the
cable, are in such brisk demand in England
that tho prices offered have a decidedly
upward tendency. After a season which
bas been unfavourable to the fruit such
intelligence may cause many a pang of disappointment. But it is the old story of the
supply regulating tho price. While it is
true that when prices are good crops are
short, it is equally true that diminished
yield brings enhanced value. Thus a natural
law compensates for the fact that nature
haa been lesa bountiful.

The worship of ancestors by the Ciiinese
finds expression in many waya and at many
timos. "On New Year's Day," says the
Ostasatischer Lloyd, "which occurs on the
last of January or in the beginning of February, and alao in the spring, at the festival of the grivc-cleaning, one ean see thousands of Chinese, as in P.oman Catholic
countries on All-Souls' day, about the
graves of their dead. They do not follow
or know our custom of decorating these
plaoea with flowers, contenting themselves with cleaning tbe graves and placing
anointed candles on them. At thc close of
the ceremonies a red piece of paper is planted in the ground, as a sign to others that
the grave is cared for by aome one and must
not be ploughed over by farmers. This
might easily happen, as the Chinese, strictly speaking, do not have cemeteries. They
bury their dead anywhere and everywhere,
choosing, however, as a rule, places open
toward ull sides, us such places aro pleasing, thoy, aay, to the Epirits,
"for the so-called 'homeless spirits'-
there are threo additional festivals. Nolh
ing is so tinpleaiant to the pious Chinaman
as the thought thai tho souls of tho departed cannot find rest, But thoy only have
lest when they arc not neglected. Especial
attention is demanded by the spirits of
thoso who dio far from home or without
male heirs. If this is not given they will
cause mischief. Threo days, therefore, are
set apart to pacify them���tbo chief festival
of the spirits, on the third day of thc third
moon : the secondary festival, on the fifth
day of the aeventh moon, and the so-called
'under' festival, on the first day ot the
tenth moon. The socondaiy festival, which
began this year on August 2G, despite its
name ia by far the most important oue, and
lasts iu many parts of China several weeks.
There is, however, only one roal holiday,
as thc industrious Chineso do not like to
wnate time. The ceremonies in Shanghai,
which began with a great procession, were
continued day and night for a long time. At
this festival very thin pieces of clothing
and false money, made from paper for the
use of the spirits, wcre burned in great
quantities. Night after night during the
secondary festival, in every city of China,
theac things are burned on every aide. In
Shanghai alone the coat of tho falso money
which went up in flames waa about ?35,000.
"According to the belief of the Chinoae
the strongest spirits grasp all tho best
money on tho firat day of the festival, if
they are not prevented iu some way, and
the weaker spirits then remain restless.
To avoid this the Chinese place the god of
tho city of Shanghai in the temple whero
the bonfire, bo to sp.-ak, is to take place.
Thia god has to act the part ol a policeman in
the world of epirits, and seo that they aot
in an orderly manner. The wealthier classes of tin Chinese do not tako part iu the
procession, us a rule, but contribute the
money for the oelobration. Foreigners are
always advised to keep away from tho parts
of t'.,e city where the masses gather on
these days, to escape probable attacks."

Tho London (Hobo reported a while ago
tho death of the colossal dragon tree of
Orotava. Though called a treo, in truth
the renowned curiosity of Orotava (Tene-
rifie) was nothing of the sort. It was a
kind of gigantic, bloated usparagus, and a
near blood relation to the fragile, dolicato
lilies of onr gardens, But with ita blood-
red sap exuding freely, though wiih curdling slowness, at overy wound, its strange
crown of stiff, strong, sword-like leaves at
the end of every octopus-liko arm, and its
scale-clad trunk, it is not dillisult to trace
the origin of ita name. The treo which
bears the golden apple is indineaoua to the
Canary Islands, and littlo fancy waB required with an imaginative people to turn
this monstrous vegetable growth into the
guardian dragon. Did it not bleed thick
red blood, did it not bristle with swords,
and was not ita abode on those Isles of thc
Blest far beyond the gates of Gsdes, in the
veritable Garden of the Ucaperides? Tho
ancients always spoke of one dragon
guarding the golden fruit because the monster of Orotava waa then removed
from all its comrades in size, bulk and
ghaatliness. Tho old Guanchea venoratcd
the monster. Thoy regarded it aa po;:3eaa-
cd of animal life and deified it in its hollow
trunk performing Druidieal rites, and they
used its blood-red sap (tho dragon's blood of
commerce) for embalming their dead, Humboldt, in 1709, gives its height as "appearing" about fifty or sixty foet, and its circumference near tho roots at forty-fivo feet,
and the diameter of the trunk at ten feet
from theground"iastir. twslve English feet,"
and ho computed its age at 10,000 yoars. In
1819 an arm was wrenched oil' in a storm,
and about some forty years ago some unscrupulous persons cut oil' a hugo piece of
the hollow trunk und presented it to the
Kew Museum. Another slorm in 18(17
broke oil'the upper part, leaving the trunk
alone standing, A traveler at that timo
says the ground underneath was oovered
with pioccs of broken branches, some being
eighteen feet in circumference. When the
land where tho tree was (-rowing came into
the possession of the late Marquis dol Sauza!
heuurscd theaged v,v;cial,h. Willi loving care
filled up the gap in its trunk with plaster and
did all that WU3 possible to prolong its existence. Piazzl Smyth, who saw it in INjli,
mensural the trunk and found it sixty feot
high abovo the ground, and forty-eight and
ahalfin circumference at a height of fourteen and a half feet. The old tree, moderately credited with 6,C01), years of life,
has gono the way of all trees, but moBt felicitously the .Marqueaa delSaiti'aJ,has planted on its exact site a seedling uu.,',-td from
its ancient progenitor, and this youngster is
now a healthy plant some four feet high,
looking���in Blmpe only���exactly like a fine
long carrot, lightly stuck in tho ground by
ita taper end, and surmounted by a crown
of Bword-shapod leaves. This baby dragon
will probably not fiowor for twonty or
thirty yeara yel. and it will only branch
after it has blosaomcd. In a neighboring
garden thero is a dragon which has not
yet blossomed, and yet it is more thnn
ft rly years old.

especially declaring tbis, but leaving it ao
open question whether an evil soul lodging
in a body reduces its own likeness, or
whether an ill-ted, wrongly developed body
cramps and dwarfs and hurts the soul. The
measure round the skull of the criminal,
taken horizontally, ia always less than that
ofthe upright man,and his brain is found to
be lighter; hia constitution is feebler, too,
and his heart is weak. But even among
culprits themselves there are great differences; thus tho highway robber is naturally
found to be taller than the pickpocket, and
the bones of his skeleton are stronger; he and
the murderer, when they write at all, write
a large round hand with many flourishes ;
the thief writes with effeminacy a small hand.
These people aro apt to give the student
surprises ; he finds, for instance, that they
are not habitually cruel ; wanton murderers will be kind to a pet; whero tbey are
cruel it L women who aro tho most so,
und who diacover the most shocking forms
of cruelty ; and although a few have talent they are all wanting in tho ability to
use their talent to advantage ; but the most
of them have great stupidity. They are
flighty and faithless always, clinging long
to nothing. And with it they are extra,
ordinarily superstitious. The one satisfactory thing that comes out of all this investigation is the establishment of the fact
that education diminishes the tendency to
crime, and that as by slow degrees the day
shall come when a wholo generation is
educated, the children of that generation
will be born with leas and less tendency
to crime or to crime made easy. For education enlarges, strengthens and refines the
brain, gives it closeness, determines its
growth ; and just so far as criminality has
anything to do with the insufficient brain,
education will abate it, and the malnutrition, of the system, with its reflex action
on the nerves, will bo overcome by the
work snd wages that education will increase It ia not agreeable to dwell upon
this dark aido of human nature, but if wo
know nothing of it vie shall do nothing for
it; and surely there is not a durk spot
upon the earth to whose purification we
should not set our minds and hands.���

Triad Eeoeipta-
Lemon Cookies.���One cnp of sugar, ono
cup of butter, two eggs, two tableapoonfuls
ot milk, one teaspoonful of baking powder,
the juice of one lemon, and just tho requisite
amount of flour to roll nicely.
To Ery Apples. ���It is seldom I find anyone that will fry apples as I do, and I will
give my way of doing it. Take ripe, juicy,
sour apples, peel and core, then put somo
butter in the spider, meat drippings will do,
leave the spider on top of the stove, (not
too hot a fire) put tho apples in, cover a
basin over them tightly keeping the steam
all in; don't stir them until done, unless to
loosen thom in tho middle with a knife if
they are likely to burn. When done put
them on a dish and cover with sugar. When
not juicy I dip the quarters in water.
Sugar Cookies.���One cup sugar, two eggs,
one half cup molted butter, then fill tho cup
wilb sweet cream, use nutmeg or caraway
seeds for spice. Sift into thia the flour, a
little soda uud heaping teaspoon baking
powder. Mix BtilF. When the dough ia
rolled out, strew granulated augar over it;
cut out tho cakes, put in dripping pan with
a raisin in ocntre of each. Bike them in
a quick oven.
To keep the juice from running over
tho ovon when baking apple pies, I
take strips of muslin (uny old pieoo will do)
about 1 i inches wide; when the pies are
ready for tho ovon, wet the strips of cloth
and wrap around the edge of each pie,
whili v-. ill bo greatly improved by retaining
tho juice. When tho pics aro done the cloth
peels ofi rjadily,and may be used for several
bakings.
Soft Ginger Cake.���1 cup augar, 1 oup
molasses, 1 teaspoon ginger, ,1 tablespoons
molted butter, or other shortening. I then
tako the teaoup 1 have measured my other
ingredients in, put in it one teaspoon of
soda, holding it ovor tho othor mixture, fill
tho oup with bailing wator then stir it in ;
make quite stiff with flour, bako in a moderate ovon, Lovois of ginger cako will find
this excellent.

Wheat Gems.���There certainly is no
warm bread'so delicious as wheat goms.
They are as suitable for uu evening meal
us for breakfast, and make a delightful addition to a company tea. Soften one teaspoonful butter added to a well-beaten egg
and j teacupful of water, sift I teaspoonful
of baking powder with a scant teacupful of
flour aud add as quickly as possible, ako a
teaspoonful of salt. Have tho gem paiu
well buttered and aa hot aa possible, drop
a spoonful of the mixture into each pan and
bakein a quick oven.   Serve at once.
Brown Bread.���Three toacupfuls aour
milk, one of molasses, one of corn meal,
three of graham flour, ono teaspoonful soda,
a scant tablespoonful salt, .Mix and pour
into three well-buttered moulds. Set in a
steamer over boiling water, cover closely and
steam four hours. Remove to a moderate
oven for fifteen or twenty minutes to dry
the top. Tin cans which have contained
tomatoea, peaches, etc., with thc top melted
off, make nice moulds for steaming the
bread in and are otherwise useful.
Lemon Pie.���One teacupful sugar and a
lump of butter the size of a walnut mixed
together. Smooth a tablespoonful of corn
starch ina very little cold water, pour over
it a scant teacupful boiling water and boil
till clear and smooth, Turn thia over tho
mixture of bntter and sugar. When cold
add one well-beaten egg and the juice and
grated rind of one lemon. Bake with only
one crust; frost if desired.
Cream Pie.���Place ono pint rich milk
where it will boil. Beat ono teacup of
Bugar and i teacupful flour together and
add the woll-beaten whitos of two large egga
Stir this into the milk when it boils, pouring in slowly and stirring constantly to prevent lumps. Add a teaspoonful of vanilla
or lemon extroct and pour into crusts which
havo been previously btked. This is enough
for two pies. If eggs are scarce one whole
one may be used instead of the whites of
two. Crusts may be baked and kept for a
week or more. If in damp weather they
become tough, set in a warm oven for a few
minutes.
Winter Wear for Children.
He seemed to me to be dressed most sensibly and comfortably, and I am going to
tell you what he wore. He had a shirt and
long drawers of natural wool, light and
comfortable. The drawers were buttoned
onto a grey drilling waist with strong flat
pearl buttons. The button holes in the
drawers were worked over againfor strength.
Over these garments a slip of dark, striped
jersey flannel, at 60 cents per yard,was put
on. For every day wear, this small boy had
neat and pretty gingham aprons, for best,
those of whito victoria lawn trimmed with
embroidery on collars and cuffs. He had
two slip dresses of jersey flannel, unlined
in anyway, and one of scarlet sergo which
washes beautifully. To wash these woolen
garments successfully, a aud is made of
white soap and tepid water, to which is
added two tablespoonfuls of ammonia. In
this suda the garments can be easily washed,
ther. rinaed and dried, even on the worst
days, without any trouble. A change of
aprons make a complete change in appearance. Leggings and mittens, cloak and
cap of dark goods,an almost invisible plaid,
completes this littlo boy's winter outfit.
I have preferred, of late years, with the
long woolen drawers, stockings of black
cotton, the heavy hose called bicycle hose.
The cashmere stockings wear thin so soon
and are so difficult to mend so aa to be at
all presentable. The life of a pair of cash-
more hoae upon a well-regulated child ia of
abort duration. Play does not agree with
their delicate constitutioua. To keep the
drawers smooth nnder the stockings, I sow
tape loops across the ribbed ends, aa on a
legging, and never behold the unsightly
lumps and excrescences with whioh tbe legs
of some children are disfigured. The
Storm King rubbers are the best and the
most durable. Each child should possess
a pair of Canadian leggings for extra protection in extreme weather.
For moderate weather little girls should
wear a hat or cap, but a hood may be kept
with the leggings for uae on the coldest
days. Wool mittena can be made to laat
much longer by lining them with another
mitten of canton flannel or light cloth.
Even baby can go out a whilo on cold

red cheeks with them. He ia a sharp con-

CALENDAR OTJRI031TIE8.
Do you Know When lite mil or thr Century Will tome?
Thc year 1910 will not bs a leap year
simply because, being a hundredth year,'
although it is divisible by 4, it is not divisible by 400 without a remainder. Thia is
not the real reason, but a result of it; the
real reason being the establishment of the
Gregorian rule, made in 15S2.
The nineteenth century will not end till
midnight nf Monday. December 31, 1900,
although the old quarrel will probably
again be renewed aa to what constitutes a
century and when it winds up, and thousands will insist on a premature burial of
tho old csntury at midnight of December
31, 1899.
But, as a century moans 103 years, and
as the first century could not end till a
full 100 years had passed, nor the second
till 200 years had passed, etc., it is not
logically oloar why the the nineteenth century should be curtailed and nrokeu off
before we havo had tho full 1900 years.
The lat of April and the lat of July in
any year, and in leap year tho first of January, fall on tho same day of the week.
The lst of September and the 1st of

The lst of January and the lst of October
in any year fall on tho same week day, except it be a leap year.
The lst of February, of March and of
November of any year fall on the same day
of the week, unless it be a leap yoar, when
January 1, April 1 and July 1 fall on the
Bame week day.
Tho lat of May, lst of June, and lst of
August in any year never fall on the Bame
week day, nor does any ono of the three
ever fall on the same week day on which
any other month in tho samo year begina,
except in leap year, when the lat of February and the 1st of August fall on the same
week day.
To find out on what day of the week any
day of this century fell, divide tho year by
4 and let tho remainder go. Add the quotient aud the year together, then add 3
more. Divide the reault by 7, and if the
remainder ia 0, March 1 of that year waa
Sunday j^if 1, .Monday ; if 2, Tuesday, and
so on.
For the last century do tho same thing,
but add 4 instead of 3. For the next century, add 2 instead.
Itis needless to go beyond the next century, because ita survivors will probably
have some shorter method, and find out by
simply touching a knob or lettiug a knob
touch them.

Peculiar Cn���e Down Ir. the'.nil.
One of thc revelations made iTy the census
is the fact that in Canada he renting ol
farms ie. except in the Provin.eof Prince
Edward, on the increase, In 1871 Ontario
had 144,212 occupiers of farms who were also
the ownerB, and 27,311 occupioxa who were
merely tenants. At the last enameration
we had221,034 occupiers who are owners,
and 60,483 oc3up:era who are tenants. To
put the case in another way, sixteen per
cent, of the farmcra were tenants in 1S71,
whereas in 1891 twenty-one per cent, were
tenants. In Quebec the increaso has been
about the same ratio. There are 19,079
tenants there now, against 7,895 twenty
years ago. The other province3 show a
smaller increase in tha tenants, while Prince
Edward has added to the number of own>
ers by 1,500 and has decreased the tenants
by twenty-two. There are now only 813
tenant farrrersin the littie island.
It is important to observe that tha conditions which obtain here have thoir influence also In the neighboring States. There
the freehold owner is giving way to the
tenant. Frequently it is aaid that the
farm mortgagca
AOROSS THE   LINE
are lower than those of Canada. Thia is
not true of all States; and where it is true
it sooma lhat one factor in the apparently
better position of affairs is the circumstance
that many a farmer, while not a mortgagor,
ia tha tenant of a wealthy owner who has
not found it necessary to look tor a loan.
The growth of what ia termed landlordism
in tbo Uuited States is, indeed, attracting
a great deal of attention, and in many
quarters the opinion ia entertained tbat
some form of legislation may be necessary
in order to help the actual worker on the
land in his struggle for ownership, We are
not in this position yet, But, with twenty,
one per cent, of our Ontario farms under
rent, and with the tenancy systeu. extend*
ing, it appears quite probable that in process of time we shall approach it. Meanwhile, it is important to observe lhat Canada has twice already come to the relief of
tenants, and that at this moment there is a
strong invitation to one of our Legislatures
to extinguish a system of farm rental that
nourishes in a distant part of thc country.
OUR   TIRST EXPLOIT
in tho way of abolishing the landlord was
made when we disposed of the seignorial
tenures of Lower Canada. Here was a
peculiar system. The seigneur was practically a baron, or lord, who drew stipulated
sums from the cultivators around him. He
received not merely his annual rental, but,
in addition, a large proportion, one-twelfth
possibly, of the amount that waa paid in tho
event of u transfer of the property from one
landowner to another. Tlie destruction of
this lordship, with its large profits, was no
easy matter, for it was recognized that the
seigneurs, us well as the cultivators, had
rights that called for recognition. Parliament settled the question satisfactorily to
all by capitalizing the annual rental payable
to the seigneurs, and allowing the occupier
to buy the soigueur out at this figure. The
next case which arose was that of Trince
Edward Island, Tbis had been given to
some of our English friends, who leased ic
to the ialandera for farming purposes at a
rate por acre. In this particular instance
the landlord plan waa
AOCKAVATEIi BY THE EVIL
of which Ireland has complained, namely
abaentooism. When Confederation was
mooted the islanders saw in the union with
Canada an opportunity to rid themselves
oi their maaters. Tncy seized the chance.
Canada assisted in the financial part cf the
proceeding, and the province did the legislating. In a short time a valuating commission passed through the is laud setting
a pries UP0D all the real estate. The
absentee owners weie compelled to accept
the figure, and when tbey had accepted it
the island was irce. To thia day the farmcra have been clearing up their indebted"
nesa on the instalmeut plan. It ie rather
remarkable that while these successful efforts havo been made iu tbe east to relieve
lhe tiller of thc soil, the islands of the
Gulf, known as the Magdalcns, should
have been overlooked. These islands so
far away from us,
ARE   HKAl'TIITL   SPOTS,
thickly populated, and fairly prosperous.
But they belong to a certain Col. Coffin,
now living iu France, whose immediate ancestors secured them as n grant from the
Crown for his ccudu.-t during the revolt:,
tionary war. It was the custom of those
days lo reward the bravo with slices cf
territory in distant parts, so that when the
land should be occupied the workers thereon might become contributors to the fortunes of the gallant poaacssor, hia heirs and
assigns for ever. The honest Aauliuns,
living on tho Magdalcns, have worked well
for the Coffin family. But tbey havo just
intimated to the legislature uf Quebec that
the family , although owning much land,
declines to pay upou its property the regular taxation, and threatens to raise all
the rents unlets exemption or a very great
reduction is concede". Under these circumstance thc islander* want Quobeo to
buy out Col. Coffin, who is a dead weight
to them, and to sot them up in business as
proprietors. There ia justice in tho island
proposition, It seems ridiculous that r
gentleman residing a; Boulogne, und drawing from this side of thc ocean a large income for doing nothing, should bc ab!c to
resist taxation.
These land troubles and the settlements
so far reached with reference to them indicate that we arc quite ablo in this
country to deal with any other dilliculty of
thc same kind, when, in the oourso of
hu.uan ovents, it happens to arise. That
a difficulty is imminent there is no reason
to apprrhen 1 ; but the census figures show
thatteuauts are increasing in a greater
ratio than the owners,

SATURDAY. JAN. 20. 1H93
THE NEW VOTERS* LIST.
The voting list for West Kootenay
is to hand.   Revelstoke Division is
Credited with 236 voters, but while
many of these are not now residing
in the divinion there <ire many residents entitled to a vote who are not
on the list, some of them prominent
business men, who if they evinced as
much apathy in business matters as
they do in matters political would
Bojn go to the wall.   In Revelstoke
alone there are at loast fifty persons
entitled to vote who have neglected
to put themselves on the liBt, among
them we notieo Messrs. H. J. Bourne
aud H. N, Conrsier, merchants; W.
Cowan, hotel keeper;  1). Robinson,
lumber merchant; Morgan  David,
bookkeeper, J, E. Long, brewer; 0.
H, Temple, locomotive supt.; O.E.
Shaw, |i(!Bi8t. postmaster, and a host
iSf others.   This is not as it should
lis. Most of us are desirous of seeing
the division take its place as one of
the most important in the province,
but those who wish the division to
teiuuin insignificant, unnoticed and
tocared for are doing tbeir best to
fetich thut consummation by allowing
their nameB to be omitted from the
Voting list,    Thomson's and Hall's
Landing also contain offenders in this
respect.   It is not yet too late to get
0n; the supplementary list, and since
the above was set in type we are informed by the collector that the cizi-
tzeiits we have named, as well us many
���others, have lately put their names
on the list.   Every adult male in the
district ought to be alive to the. advantages of possessing a vote.
The Nelson Division list contains
284 names, making 520 for the whole
district. This is greatly below expectations. It wns anticipated that
the four towns of Nelson, Kuslo, New
Denver and Nakusp could count up
SOO votes between them, and the
Various camps, villages and ranches
200 more. The plain facts, however,
teem to bear out the statement so
Often made that the preponderance of
population in Nelson Division is alieu.
A curious fact is that the leading
politician in Nelson is not on the list,
Neither do we see the name of Mr.
Ilogle, who is stated to be a, candidate
for the local Parliament. If thee*)
gentlemen are aliens they must, be
very simple to waste their time in
*>e'J/.l,liug with Canadian politics.
tftAT CONVENTION.
Two or three West Kootenay paprs
iave beon selected by a certain ring
of politicians, with head-quarters at
NeteoBv to publish notices of �� convention of delegates for nomiuating
enn-Mdutes for legislative honors at
ihe forthcoming general elecUou, enid
souventiou to be held at Nelsou (of
course) on the Hth of April.    The
MiNi.it and the BjJAB appear 'to have
bae:A the only two papers ignored in
this matter, prol-ubly because they j
are the only two papers willing to
give the Government anything likej
{airplay.  The MlNKE snvs; " It must I
dome as a revelation to the electors of [
iklson.tbe knowledge that the details I
have s.U: been arranged for Uietu and j
tbeis path defined by Johu Houston, i
whose name was within the past week |
��r so placed on the voters' list."
If it cotnes as a revelation to the i
electoss of Nelson it is much more eo I
to the electors of  Kevelstoke.   It,
seems as if Mr. John Houston in- j
tendjed to introduce the tactics of the j
TsnjjBaUiy Ring into West Kootenay. |
with himself as Boss Tweed.   ReveL-
stgke vould have no objection to anch
& comeation, only let us be cou-
tttjffiH betore the arrangements have
t����^ cat and dried, not after.   Mure-
