impudent Theft. ��� Warning
to Pickers-lip of Sua-**,
A case of theft was tried before
Messrs. Bourne and Fraser last Saturday which the magistrates wish to be
brought before public Dotice, About
dusk the previous evening a tramp
unhung a Mackinaw shirt whioh was
displayed outside H. N. Coursier's
Store and walked off witb it. He
Offered it for sale at tbe Stockholm
House, but Mr. Stone would not bdy
it, suspecting the man had not got it
honestly, After the tramp had left
Mr. Stone remembered he bad seen
similar shirts outside Coursier's, and
informed Mr. Conrsier of the occurrence. About half an hour later Mr.
C, while at the post-office disoovered
the shirt tucked under the arm of a
Well-known citizen. A few questions
elicited tbe fact that the shirt had
been purchased by its latest possessor
for less tbau half its value. The
magistrates, in sentencing tho prisoner to 30 days' bard labor, strongly
condemned the action of the citizen
in buying a new article from a stranger at what be must bave known to
be far below its value, and stated tbat
if ever such a case came before them
again tbey would punisb the receiver
u well as tbe thief, as tbe law holds
him equally guilty,

A M(standing Statement.
Snv-Mr. Kirkup, at the meeting
on Monday trigbt, eudeHVorcd to lead
thoso present to believe that I held
|80 beloncifig to the Library Aseo-
eiatkffl, Tbis is entirely misleading.
Tbe money is the surplus of tbe sun
subscribed by all classes of citizens
tor the* celebration of tbe Queen's
Birthday, and a number of subscribers
bave intimated to me that they would
decidedly object to its being used for
library purposes. Mr. Kirkup -mid
the ewnmittw bed ordered W to
band the money over to the library.
That is not true. There were ewht
gentlemen on tiie CT*morittee, and only
two of them (both members of tbe
Library AsfwcUtioi^ have ever told mo
tbey wished tbe awney to go to the
library. Thar* were other members
of the comitfittee who thought a portion of the money should be devoted
to purchasing a national flag for the
sefawlhouse. Mr. Kirkup was not a
���aoetobet of the committee, but Ive ia
the betal of the Library Association.
Bi interference in tbe matter may be
eansed by �� desire to get this small
plnm for the library, but it is unwarranted nevertheless, and I fail to
sew by what right he made such a
false statement in a public meeting
Unite* tor tbe purpose of making me
feel small,.*' Moreover, tbe sum in my
hands is not $30, but only $18, and I
certainly sball not hand the money
over to the Library Association without the full consent of the committee
of eight. Tl�� til-rsr** is no doubt a
, nice place for certain of the so-called
elite of the town te go, snd read tlie
daily papers on tbe ehetip, bnt there
are institutions in this town more deserving of aid than the Kbrary���the
fire Brigade, for instance.���Yours
truly,.

The Bevelstoke A Arrow Lake Bail-
way is now in rnnoing order u far as
tbe Green Slide, and the extension to
tbe Wigwam will be completed inside

agent here ies been sending freight
over tbe new line for some time put,
and will probably continue to do so all
winter, sleighs being used from the end
of the track to deep water on the Arrow
Lake. About 200 tons of freight are
still awaiting shipment to the lower
country.
A meeting of the Douglas Street committee wu held at the Central Hotel oo

indneed to contribute something towards snob a great improvement to the
appearance of the town u the opening
up of Donglu Street bu been. Nothing
more can be done until spring, when an
effort will made to complete tbe work.

the Big Bend trail next summer the
crossing at the head of Donglu Street
will be a certainty. The committee will
issne a balance-sheet shortly.
Messrs. T. M. Sutherland and Bobt.
Tapping bad a lively hunting experience
on Wednesday in the busn near the
mouth of the Iileoillewaet. They came
across the wild steer that escaped from
Hull Bros,' herd about a month ago.
The animal wu quite savage and turned
on bis pursuers. "Johnny" Sutherland,
who was loading wood on a sleigh, waa
startled at finding the steer charging
bim from behind and hastily climbed
on top of the load of legs, which the
infuriated animal began to scatter in all
directions. Before anyone got hurt,
however, the steer wu brought down
by shots from the rifles of Messrs. Tapping and T. M. Sutherland. The carcase was loaded on tbe sleigh and
brought to town.
������, .��.���-    ,
Struck a Rock.
The steamer Iileoillewaet, whioh left
here on Thursday week, fe> now lying on
the beicb abont midway between the
Green Slide aad the Wigwam. She
had a hole knocked in her bottom forwent by atrikkg a tocb owing to the
lowuess of tbe water in tbe river, it be*
ing lower than ever known beforo at
this time of the year. Tbe freight, consisting mostly of flour aud meal, was
taken oot uninjured, the men carrying
Ihe sacks having to wade about 60 feet
to shore tbronph three feet of water.
Tbe steamer bas sinoe been hauled on
tbe beach, and will be thoroughly repaired where she lies. This puts an
end to rirer navigation this season.
Capt. Troop in the steamer Lytton came
up as far as Cariboo Bar last week and
bad to turn back. He saya be will not
again attempt to enter the rirer ibis
year. Traffic will be carried on between
Bevelstoke and Nakusp and NewDeuver
by means of tbe Bevelstoke A Arrow
Lake Railway as far as the Wigwam,
where sleighs will lie used to the head
of Arrow Lake. Tbe sleigh route will
cross the river at tbe Wigwam, passing
through the settlement at Hall's Landing, on to Bannock Poiut, where tbe
water is deep and never freezes. Tbe
boat will probably mo from Nakusp to
tbis point all winter, sn that mails and
passengers oan reach tbe lower country.
But tbe greatest misfortune is tbat tbe
rails for the Nakusp A Slocau road can
not be carried by this route, and the
tracklaying between Nakusp and New
Denver will be at a standstill till spring.
Had tbe work on both railroads been
oommenoed earlier in tbe anmmer they
would bave been in running order by
thia time.
LARDEAU NOTES.
[mom oun own oobbsspondj-wtJ
Thomsok's Landing, Nor. 20th.
It is a long time siuee I sent you any
news from this section, and Ibe last
budget I sent yon got mislaid somehow
and was never published. However,
your correspondents at Lardeau City
snd Trout Lake kept you pretty well
enpplied with newa all summer, but as
they seem to be very quiet of late probably it is my turn to do something.
Messrs Greenlee and Bunfiuld came in
lut Friday from the Black Prince.
They report tbe olaim looking better u
depth is attained. Tbey intend to ship
about 1,000 tone next summer. The
owners of tbe Silver Cnp have tbeir
winter's snppliss up at the mine, and
will commence taking out on for shipment after Christmas.
Messrs, F. C. Campbell and Fred
Johnston have been carrying on development work on their claims, the "Bad-
shot" and "No. 25." These olaims are
on the mum lead u ths now famous
"Black Prince" and show a eom-idarebi*
body oi the Mme character, assaying
from 8250 to (1100. They will ship on
next summer. They have elosed down
work on tbeir claims and 1stt Thomson's Landing for Nelson. Tbey, u
well as others, were anxious to see Mr.
Kellie lo urge npon him the importance
of having a wsgon road built from
Thomson's Landing to Trout Lake, and
having the work commenced aa early io
Ihe spring u possible, so that it will be
of some use next summer. Tbe present
trail ie perfectly worthless for the shipment of ore. What is required for that
purpose is a wagon road from Tront
Lake to Thomson's, continued on to ihe
deep wster below Kiooaid's; and good
branch trails for rawbidiog ore to the
main road. Now that some five or six
of our claims have reached the shipping
point better roads are a necessity.
The stores at Thomson's and Tront
Lake are pretty well stocked witb provisions, so that it will not be necessary
to make trips to Bevelstoke tbis winter.
Mr. B. F. Barney got into Jack Stau-
ber'a cariboo corrall lut Friday and
shot a floe young oariboo which will
dress about *200lbs. The carcase was
brought into Thomson's Landing wbsre
it will be need to enrich the Thomaonian
soup pot.
We have fine hard weather here, with
abont two inobes of the beautiful oa tbe
ground,   .
Mr. Beaton, as soos as tbe weather
gets a little milder, will leave witb 7
horses lor Trout Lake.' He hu |o wait
for a soft day, as most of tbe load will
be I'Otatoes for Messrs C. B. Hume k
Co.
A petition praying for the construction of a wagon road from the bead of
the Arm to Ttout Lake ia in oirenlalion
and we trust all those interested will
sign it.	
Stoppod by an Ice Jam.
J. T. Nault and party, who left here
lut Thursday week with a mow load of
provisions for Nakusp, met with rather
hard luck a few miles down river. Their
progreM wu stayed several times hy
small ice jams, but tbey managed to get
along notil lhey reached the Green
Slide, where a bridge of snow ami ice
about a quarter of a mile wide bad
formed at tbe elbow where tbe river
takes a sharp turn wutbward. Tbey
oould go no further, so they got the
mow ashore a liltle this side the rook
bluff, where she is now, and where, in
all likelihood, she will remain till next
spring. She is not thc least damaged,
and in ail tbe knooking about never
shipped a drop of wster. It possible
Mr. Nault will have tbe freight taken
on the B. A A. L. Bailway m far as the
tnmksgo, and from thoro to Baoeeek
Point, at the head of Arrow Lake, hy
sfoigbs. If he cannot make tbis arrangement with tbe railway sompsvy he will
brisg his own- sleighs and teams fn*
Naknsp and do the work himself, m the*
provisions must reach Nakuap somehow.
There were also on board the mow Mr.
F. Bourne of Naknsp, E. Adair, Wm.-
Mackenzie, T. Reid, W. Kinman and
others, who were taking down supplies1
for Hall's Landing. Messrs. Bonrn��r
Adsir aud Kinman returned to town on
Monday. As tbe frost wss severe for
several nights Mr. Adair thought bo
could portage his canoe over the ice
jams further down and left on Thursday
to sm if be conld gel home witb
tbe greater portion of his effects. A
cooking stovs be will leave behind in
Ibe scow. Messrs Reid snd Mackenzie
did not come back and it ie believed go*
through all right.

Meeting af the Fire Brigade aad
Library Association.
A largely attended meeting of ths*
members of the Bevelstoke Library Aa*
aociation and Fire Brigade wm held irr-
Mr. A. H. Holdich's office on Monday
evening last, the object being to diieni*
the project of either utilizing tbe existing engine house for library purposes,
or of arriving at Mme other arrangement whiob abonld be (o the mutual
benefit of both societies.
Chkf W. M. Brown took the chair,
and Mr. F. B, Wells, the secretary, performed tbe duties usually pertaining to*
bis office.
Tbe oaestion wu fully diMussed, and
it wu decided lhat at present any union
between tbe two societies would be difficult if nol impossible to effect;   but*-
that the members of the library committee wonld meet and farther consider
the mailer from Iheir point of view,
Tbis diMUMioa narrowed Ihe subject to
tbe belter bouMiug of the Chemical'
Engine, as tbe present quarters ue utterly incapable nf affording protection
against frost ;aad it wm finally arranged that a small committee sbould get
estimates for a new engine houM and
proceed at onw with its erection.  The*
Loom will bc about 30 feet long by IS-
wide and be situated between Coursier's
store aod Ibe Stockholm House, od.
Front street.  The reason for building
euoh a large room being to enable tber
Fire Brigade to bave a convenient place**
of meeting without trespassing on the*
kindness of private citizens.  Tbe cost
of material is expected to be abont IMfls
and the labor will be given freely by
Mr. Haskins and other members ai the-
Fire Brigade.  The nfocuds ef tarn mm
annual bail (we nth'L) will be i
to tbis object.

"THY  HRjIUT'S DrSU'E"
" Dsar, dear! Now, only do toll!" ex-
llaimi Mrs. Bradshaw Woollffe, in iho
lolenin conclave of a feminine gathering at
the commencement of iho London season.
" Vou ought to know, Mrs. Douglas, Is
yonr daughter really going to marry Keith
Athelstone'after all?"
" Afterall I" echoes Mrs. Douglas, sharply.    " All whal ���;"
" Well, I guess you know pretty well
what people said two seasons ago.    liut to
think things should turn outlike this���quite
a romance ! My���only to ihink of it 1"
''It is not so unnatural," says Mrs.
Douglas, loftily. " Mr. Athelstono was
always deeply attached to my daughter,
and, in fact, came home from America with
tho intention of proposing. Hut ho was
just too late. My dear girl had accepted
Sir Franois Vavasour."
" Is that so ? Well, I've heard another
shaped tale about that. Anyhow, it steins
Sir FranoiB was a briito to hor, and she-
well anyone who knows Lauraine, knows
she's got real downright good stuff In her ;
and as for Vavasour���iBn't thore one of your
national poets says: ' Nothing in his life
beoamo him like his leaving it'? That's just
al "ill his BOFl for an epitaph, I should sty.
No offence, I hope, Airs. Douglas, though
hc was your s m-in-law, Vou know 1 always
speak my mind right plump out, There's
no nonsense about tne. '
" 1 am not the least oll'endod," says ,Vrs.
Douglas, sweetly, " All men have faults,
and Sir Franois Vavasour was certainly
not na devoted a husband as my dear child
had reason to expect. Hut you see she is
ralher colli and prudish, and all that, and
he���well he had heen spoilt hy society. We
must excuse Iiim for being a littlo wild, and
really they got on very well together, and
nothing could exceed hia kindnesa and generosity to Lauraino, An lhe has left her
everything, and quite untrammelled."
" And she',i going to marry Keith Athel-
stone next fall!"
" Well, her husband has been dead nearly a year, and dear Keith is so very delicate sine-) that accident, and he has been
ordered to winter at Algiers, and nothing
will induce him to go unless Lauraine goes
also."
"That was a queer thing, too," says
Mrs. Bradshaw 15. Woollffe, eagerly.
"N'evor could make head or tail of it. That
Lady Jean was kind of mixed up in that,
Wasn't she?"
"Really," says Mrs. Douglas, with her
most stately air, "I must decline to say
anything about lhat woman. Her conduct
has h'.'on quite too disgraceful.   Quite."
"Her conduct was no better or worse,
hai 1 cau see, when her husband was alive,"
answers Mrs, Woollffe. "Sho was always
bad, though, of course, no ono could see it
until Joel Salomans had lost all his monoy
and blown his brains out. I've never heard
a good word of her since."
Airs. Douglas looks uncomfortable.
" Of course, as long as society is not publicly outraged, as long aa there is some
show of decency, it puts up with a great
deal; but when anyone is imprudent
enough to overstep tho boundary mark,
that quite alters the cisc."
" Of course," agrees Mrs. Woollffe, with
a nniile. " It's only natural to wink at
what suits our convenience. I wonder why
Lady Jean has never com.; to London again
since she married thai foreigner, Count	
what's his name ?"
" Count Karolyski, I don't know, I'm
sure, Bul I think it is just as well. No
one in her old set could possibly receive
licr."
" Well, yonr English society heats me !"
exclaims Mrs. Bradshaw II. Wooltffu,
"Guess you'io tho ruinmost lol of poople
on tiie face of creation. What���you're not
goini: ''A
"Ves, I must. It is Lady Etwynde
Carlisle's day, you know : an 1 I want to
look iu and hear some later news of my
child. She corresponds so oouslanlly
with her friend. Ol course, it i, only

that his action nad rid Lauraine of her

then also for the Brat, though not for the
laat time, did she learn that she had sold
herself into a bondage trom which there
was no escape, and, galled, fretted, half
broken-hearted, sho found herself compelled, to do llis bidding and accept her present fate.
11 Lauraine had been unhappy too, it
would have sweetened the gall and wormwood of her own lot; but that her rival
should have peace and happiness, and she
herself sink to a life that w.is as dreary as
a captive's, was the crowning stab to her
many wounds.
And yel, burn in auger, chafe in humiliation as sho might, thero was no help for her
and no possibility of escade, The violence
of her tempestuous ppssions only seemed to
amuse him. Tears and reproaches alike
beat against tho stony calm nud immovability of his nature, as futile waves may lash
a rock that has borne tlieir fury for centuries.
Do what she might, net as she pleased,
one fact alone showed itself to hor. She
was a disappointed and helpless woman, and
she was in tho power of a master against
whom it was useless to rebel.
The long dreary days went by, empty as
a rifled grave, oold with tlio chill of an
endless despair.
Such was her life; such would be her life
for all tho futuro now. Her soul might
rebel as it would, and her heart grow sick
within her as the sullen shadows01 momory
dogged her every footstep, but sho was
powerless to evade or resent. Her evil
deeds had gained now their own reward���
the vengeance alio had planned for another
had recoiled on her own head.
Aud where arc tho two about whom so
muoh gossip is rife, concerning whom so
many tongues arc wagging ?"
Have tlle sundered lives been joined at
last? Has fato done its worst, and, wearied of spite, grown callous now as to what
may or may not eii3ue?
Two days after Lauraine had left him,
Sir Francis Vavasour died. His presentiment had been true, but his saeriliee had,
in some way, softened the bitterness of
death.
Lauraine was smitten with terrible remorse. It seemed to her always as if she
should have withstood his wishes and
remained by his silo until lbe end.
Kven her husband's dying words���the
message penned by his band���failed to comfort her, and it took all Lady Ktwynde'sper-
suasions, and all Colonel Carlisle's strong
common sense, ami all Keith's tender re-
proahces to lessen the sharpness of her own
sgll'-aceusation���to convince her that her
fault, iffault it were, deserved no such harsh
condemnation as she feared.
A year has passed since freedom came to
her���a year so peaceful and so calm that
sorrow and pain, and self-accusing seem
lulled to rest, and once again Koith whispers of happiness in storo.
A year, and to-morrow she will wed her
lover,
He kneels by her side in the summer
moon-light���his heart too full of rapture
lor words���his eyes resting ever cn her face
with that adoration neither has wearied of
yet.
" You are happy -you are sure you are
happy?" he asks, as hc has asked a thousand
times before.
"An, yds,"she sighs, "Too happy almost it seems to mc."
" Ami of what were you thinking all thi3
long time!"
" I was thinking of something Ktwynde
told me long ago, dear, when 1 was very
wiekel, very discontented, very wretched."
" What was it';"
" That anthem from the ' Elijah :' (Trust
in the Lord ; wait patiently for Him, and
lie will givo thee thy heart's desire.'"
" Anil what was���your���heart's desire,
my own!"
"Cau you ask.?" she murmurs, passionately ; and in the toft summer dusk he
draws Iier arms about his neck, and kisses
the trembling lips.
"lean, I 'io. Tel! mc," he says, with
soft insistence,

"Arc you sick, dear?" anxiously queried
Mrs. Bowser as Mr. llowser eame home the
othor evening with lhat peculiar drag to
the legs which she well know signified that
something was wrong.
" Who is supposed to run the interior of
this houso ?" ho demanded as ho let Ids
hat fall on the lloor and s. t down in a way
to jar the houso from cellar to garret.
"lam, of course," she replied. "Has
anything happened to tlie inteiiorof our
house ?"
" If there is another house in North
America run on your system, I'd like to
seo it! The wonder to me is thai I haven't
beon driven to the verge of desperation and
committed some awful deed. Mrs. Bowser, I give you  fair warning that���that���"
And Mr. Bowser swallowed the lump in
his throat and Hushed up and glared around
tho room like a tiger driven to bay.
" Will you please explain whal has happened ?" quietly asked Mrs. Bowser.
"Look at mc I" he hoarsely whispered as
hc rose up and extended his arms at full
length.
"Why, what's wrong ?"
" What's wrong ! Look at, the set of
this collar���this shirt���this ooat I I'm all
hunohod up and humped ovor! I'vo felt liko
a man tied up in a sack all the afternoon,
and when 1 got offthe streetcar I foil on
my head and shoulders and was guyed at
for being drunk I"
" Let me see if I can find out what's tho
maltet. Von were lato this morning and
in a great hurry about dressing. Lot me help
you off with your coat. Do you see Ihis, Mr.
Howser ?"
" Sec what ?"
" Here is one of your suspenders twisted
around on your back. In your hurry you
forgot to slip it over yonr shoulder. The
other end is also unbuttoned behind. It's no
wonder you felt hunched up, as you call it.
Let's get your vest off."
" I'd liko to know who dared fool with
my clothes in this fashion I" growled Mr.
Bowser as he wriggled out of his vest.
" Look at this I" said Mrs. llowser as she
removed a towel from bis shoulder. "I gave
you this clean towel as I went down stairs
and you throw it over your shoulder and
left it there. That was one oi lho humps
you felt."
" I'll give 810,000 to find the party who
played that game on me I" shouted Mr.
Bowser, trying to look very fierce,
" And you say your shirt hunches up?"
"Hunches! Why, the blamed thing has
been trying to climb over my head all day,
while my collar has almost sawed off my
ears."
Mrs, Bowser turned him around and
opened ids shirt and quietly observed i
"Its no wonder I looked tho wholo house
over for your night shirt and couldn't tiud
it."
"Oh! I suppose you have discovered it
under my collar button 1" bc replied.
A portion of it is. In your hurry you
didn't take it off, but put on your day shirt
over it."
" What ! Aro you trying to make out
that I'm a born idiot!" bowled Mr. Bowser
as he danced around. "I know I never did
a thing of that sort."
" But it's there, and no wonder you felt
so uncomfortable. 1 don't see how you got
your collar around your nook."
"Do you mean to say I've got on my
niglit shirt J" lie demanded as a paleness
succeeded tlie flush on his cheeks.
"Ido.andheroisonc of your socks caught
on the buckle of your trousers and rolled up
in a ball !"
"Audi did it myself?"
"Why, who else could have done it ?"
Mr. Hawser inarched off upstairs and redressed himself. In doing so ho came across
the necktie ho had worn the day beforo
smuggled away between tho two shirts.
He realized that he didn't havo much of a
case againsi Mrs. Bowser, but it would never do to let her off scot-free. Therefore ns
he came down stairs and she asked him if
he didn't feel more like himself, ho drew
himseli up to his full height, looked dowu
at hor for a proper length of time, and then
replied :
" Mrs. Bowser, don't lot tliis thing happen again���not if you wish to continue
living iu your present position ! That is
all, It is no use discussing the matter, and
n doesn't look well tor a wife to give hor
husband any back talk. We will now go
down to dinner, and in overlooking the
nutter as I have I trust you will bo induced
to bs morc careful in tho future!"
Grower in California,
I had an experience with wild Reese in
California, and it is so big that few, except
those who are familiar with them, can
readily believe it," said State Senator
Dare to a San Francisco Examiner reporter.
" I own n ranch of 14,(100 acres at
Knight's Lauding, on the Sacramento���
tiie Volo ranch. I raise a great deal of
wheat, and every year as soon as the wheat
comes up tho country is overrun with geese.
I have seen droves oi them two or three
miles long, and so thick that when you
shoot into them with a rillo you are bound
lo hit some of them, They are so plentiful
that 1 nm obliged to hire herders to keep
them off. They settlo in great bands.
A band will settle down on five acres,
say, and you won't hear a quack nor
a squawk, hut tho geeso aro there and very
industrious, and beforo you know it they
have pullod up and eaten every bit of tho
grain. They have a skillful way of grasping the tender shoots in tlieir mouths and
pulling and relaxing aud pulling again till
lhey get tlio swollen grains witli the
blades and then eat tho whole. A
storm is a!mo3t sure to bring them
in largo numbers, hut thoy often como
in entirely fair weather. I keep many herders to drive thcni away. If it wero not for
this I wouldn't havo any wheat. The mon
aro armed with loud-sounding Winchesters
and they keep shooting among them all the
time, Al night the geeiie don't bother, but
early in the morning and all through the
day they literally swarm. Tho borders go
out very early in the morning and stay all
day. Il is a continual battle. The geeso
must bo keptgolng all the time or tbo wheal
is gone. When tho men aro plowing they
got very closo to the geeso. Take fourteen
or sixteen teams, each with a big plow that
turns four furrows. Thoy come along in a
string. The first one is a good way off. Ti e
next is a litlle closer, and so on till thu
last one is fifty feet or more noarcr than
the first one was. The geese don't notieo
this and a man can knock them over as ho
goes by, I saw ono man tako a monkey-
wrench and howl away and kill one. In
fact, if anyone wants geese ho may easily
kill them hy thousands, and I was almost
going to say millions, up there. I have
killed them myself many a timo. The annual visitation of the geese at Knight's
Landing is not a joke. It is tho sternest
kind of reality and means a heavy less if
warfare is not kept up against them."

Some Aueodotes of Artists-
There is probably no profession in the
whole range of human efforl in whioh more
eccentric things are done by its followers
than in that of llie painter. Tho following
stories culled from various sources indicate
the truth of this assertion, and will bo
found amusing as well:
Delacroix, the painter, was walking out
one day in Paris with a friend of bis, wheu
he fell into a brown-study.
" What is up with you now 1" said the
fri��nd.
" I can't get a certain shade of yellow,"
replied the artist.
" What sort of yellow?"
Just then a cab drove past.
"The very thing!" the painter gasped
out.   "Stop ! Stop !"
"I am engaged," the cabby replied, without stopping.
Delacroix started in pursuit, and at a
steep place in the Rue des Martyrs overtook tlio cab, OpeuiDg tlie door, be said,
in tones of entreaty, to tho passenger inside :
" Do please tell your driver to stop ; I
want your comploxion for ii painting on
which I am at work, There is a color-mor-
chant oloso at hand. I shall not detain
you above five minutes, and in acknowledgment oi thc service yon render me I will
present you with a iikctch of my picture."
The bargain was struck ; Delacroix got
his yellow, and a few months later the
" faro " received a sketch of his "Assassination of the Archbishop of Lisge."
Another artist, celebrated in his day as a
successful painter of portraits, while mak
ing a counterfeit presentment of a lady
perceived that when lie came to draw the
mouth she tried to render it smaller by con.
tracting her lips.
" Pray do not trouble yourself so much,
madam," be oxolamod, "If you like, I
will draw your face without any mouth al
all.
A somewhat eccentric individual was thc
I'lemish painter Craaabeck, of whom it is
told that once, fearing that his wifo had
ceased to lovo him, and anxious to discover
if his fears wero foundod on fact, he resolved
upon an extraordinary test. He tore his
blouse from his chest and painted just nbovo
liis heart a vory vivid representation of a
wound. Ho then painted his lips and
cheeks so that they presented a ghastly
aspect, covered liis palette-knife and his
garments with spots of red paint, gave a
shriek, and fell to the lloor as if dead. The
test was successful. Madamo Craasbcck,
bearing the shriek, rushed into the room,
and supposing that her husband had been
killed or had killed himself, gave way to
what was to tho supposed victim on thc
floor a series of very gratifying outbursts of
grief. What the lady said when her lord
and master sat up aud informed her that ho
was only Bhammltlj*, history docs not record ; but if she failed logo from ono extreme to tho other ami give him a round
.���colding, she certainly missed a great opportunity, and showed herself a woman of
marvellous self-control,
How to Dry Wet Shoos-
Wlien, without overshoes, yon have beon
caught in n heavy rain-storm, perhaps you
havo known already what to do with
your host kid boots, which havo been thoroughly wet through, and which, if loft to
dry in tho ordinary way, will bo Btiff,
brittle, and unlovely? If not, you will be
glad to loaru whal I hoard only recently,
Irom one whose oxporlouoo is of value.
Kir.it wipe off gently with a soft cloth all
surface water and mud ; then, while still
wet, rub woll with kerosene-oil,  using  for
the purpose lho furred sido of Canton flannel,
Set them aside till partially dry, when a
Bocond treatment with oil is advisable. Thoy
may thon bo deposited in a conveniently
warm place, where they will dry gradually
nnd thoroughly. Boforc applying French
kid-dressing, give themaflnal rubbing with
the flannel, still slight ly dampened with
kerosene, and your boots will be soft and
flexible as new kid, and be very little
affected by their bath in the rain.
This term is usually Confined to two forms
of trouble that prevail mostly in the fall,
and are supposed to bo duo to emanations
from swamps of stagnant water, attended
with rank growth of vegetation, especially
of grass aud weed vanity.
While water is high and vegetation is
not matured tho disorders do not manifest
themselves, but when tho season is far advanced, and water has mostly disappeared
and vegtntion is decomposing, the malarial
Irouhles^nppear. It comes in ono or two
forms, viz., intermittent fever or bilious remittent lever. Tho latter seems to be ouly
tho former intensified.
Typical interinilicnta havo threo distinct
stages during a paroxysm and a period of
intermission of 24, -IS or 7'-'hours, when one
feels comparatively well, Tho periods vary
in their length, and lho stages in tho order
of their coming or in intensity of discasod
action somewhat, according to tho constitution of tho patient or their bodily health
whon tho malaria found them,
Thc throe stages are usually that of chill,
fever and sweat. Sometimes these stages
get mixed a little, i.e, thc skin will fool
hot when chill is on and patient is shaking; again, swoat will appear with the
chill ; again, a hard chill and littlo fovor or
vice vorsa.
Tho routine prescription is a fover medi-
ohio during attack aud 10 to 20 grains of
quinine in Ibo intervals, divided into two-
grain dimes. Thc common fover remedy is
aconite 10 or 12 drops of 3d in half glass of
water and take a teaspoonful every hour
till sweat begins. As to medicine in tho
interval, wo must protest against tho indiscriminate use oi quinine. Now and then a
case may need it, and when it is tho remedy
it is not needed in auy such quantity. A
hotter form would bo to put enough tincture of cinchona in water to color it decidedly,then take a teaspoonful every two hours
iu 2d dny chills and overy hour in every day
chills. In the place of this remedy twice a
day, tako uux vomica in the taino way ;
every other time take the cinchona, This
is the drug from which quinine is made.
Tho cases that mostly require this remedy are those which have the different
Stages quito woll marked and where the
patient is usually healthy and rather fnll
blooded. Persons that are weakly, pale,
thin in ilesh, or iiavc weak digestion or
hoA-t'ls, nre nol, lho right persona for cinchona and especially for quinine. Tbe latter drug may stop tlie paroxysm for one,
two, or threo woeks,whon it returns and the
same drug must be repeated in larger doses.
While this tumble-down and build-up process is going oil the general health ia being
undermined and the sufferer haa a fair
prospect for un nil winto:-'s siege, with finally an enlarged spleen (ague cake.) The
thin, weakly persons should use, instead of
above drugs, ipecac, if much nausea, especially at small of victuals during interval;
nalruiii muriaticum if much hoadachn nets
in at the beginning of the paroxysms and
continues all through, and even sometimes
extends from one paroxysm to the next;
arsenicum if chill and fever got mixed up,
and especially if a person has a faulty
digestion at oilier times.
These remedies should bo taken in the
interval from ono lo two hours apart as
directed for cinchona. When tho chill is a
shako and the chief thing, mix vomica may
bo best in the interval. Use about 10 drops
of tbo third alternation ih water, or the
pills, all of which are iu tlie csbc except
natruin,
Ono who has chronic ague must be careful about being out in night air, eating apples, or rich food, or overeating. iSoine cases
that havo been on hand for months will need
tho guidance of a physician,
Tlie best way to do in this disease as in
moBt others, is to rest during the interval,
as woll as iu the attacks. The second form
is when thoro is no interval of comparative
health betwoon attacks. 'Tho fever abates
but does not wholly go off. This io called
bilious reiniltent fever and must bo treated
much the same way and with samo remedies as intermittent fovor. At this timo of
the year, probably many readers are victims
of " ague." An adjuvant during the fever,
if not chilly, is frequent sponging with tepid
water.
Don't dough!
In all bronchial affections the paroxysms
of tho cough should bo placed as far as possible undor control of the will.
The old idea that disagreeable sensations
in the throat indicated the presenoo thero
of "something which ought to como up" has
been entirely displaced by the more rational viow that the continued and prolonged
efforts to expel that "something" arc often
productive of more mischief than would
result from its being allowed to remain.
There is attendant upon every disease of tho bronchial tubes a greater or
less amount of.mucus, which exudes from
tho membranous lining of tho tube. Of
course there are tho accompanying sigiiB of
inflammation���hoat, pain, swelling and redness ; but it is tbe mucous exudation which
is for tlio most part reaponsiblo for the
disagreeable sensations whicli wc iimtino-
tively attempt to alloviate by coughing.
Now it is certain that, in a great majority of instances, where the general health
of the patient is not attacked, this exudation undergoes what is called resolution ;
that i), it is ro-absorbcil through lho fine
iieUork of blood-vessels about the tubes
into tbe blood, whore it is taken care of,
and complete recovery is effected.
On tho other hand, let us Biippose that
we do not wait for resolution to take place;
but that, on the theory that every particle
of the exudation should bo expelled, as being of a poisonous nature, we strain tu exhaustion every muscle of expiration, and,
iu fact, the wholo system, What follows T
Wo may have accomplished our immediate object, or tho seat of tho inflammation
may havo been out of reach. In either
event, if we could see the point at whicli
our efforts had been directed, wo should
discover that they had not boen productive
of the results anticipated. Instead of tho
Inflammation being in any way allayed, wo
should find that an effect bad been produced similar to that which follows scratching
an itching sore. The irritation has for tho
moment been relieved, but it is only a
question of time when it will return with
renewed energy.
Tho habit of endeavoring to expol more
of the exudation than will come away with
gentle and infrequent coughing is an ex-
hausliug and idle one.

What is In Accident?
To the non-legal mind tho term "accident" would appear to be easily defined,but
the late Lord Chief Justice Cockburn
thought not, and on several occasions insurance companies have sought a definition in
tho courts of law. It has been decided that
a sunstroke is not an accident, but that
injury to thc spine through lifting a heavy
weight is one. Kven if physical ailments
contribute to au accident, it is covered by
the policy.
The relatives of a man who, while bathing in shallow water, was seized with a fit

those of a man who, wlien similarly seized,
fell under a train and was killed. Again, a

The newly-elected mayor of a country
town was about to make his iirst journey
in that capacity through the place.
The townspeople had arranged that from
an arch of llowers under which he was to
pass a floral crown should be hung surmounted by the words: "He well deserves
it."
Hut tho wind blew away the crown, ami
when the pompous mayor passed under the
arch, to the great joy of those who had
voted against him, only a rope with a noose

What struck the foreign visitors to London during the festivities incidental to thc
marriage of the Duke of York was the intense enthusiasm of the crowds for the reigning family. The streets around and adjacent
to the royal residenoe were packed with the
London multitude Binging " Ood Save the
Queen " as an assurance to the august, venerable and splendid woman who fills the
throne that the hearts of her subjects were
with her. The Russian notables were
particularly impressed hy this incident.
Coming from a country where tho sovereign
fears to venture into the most frequented
paths lest he should be assassinated by his
unruly and discontented subjects, this popular ebullition of the love of a people for
tlicir ruler, which expressed not only tho
feeling of London, but what Londoners aro pleased to call the provinces,
which includes all that is not London,
was a revelation to those who knew
only despotism and all its hateful consequences. Socialistic ideas permeate the
mass in England as they do in many other
countries, but it is not the violent and destructive socialism of the continent, because
the latter is atheistical and murderous,
while the socialism of Britain is tempered
by the teachings of Christianity which

Tlie sandalled legions of Rome in the

The monarchical system will survive in
Great Britain because the people know
that it is the safest and best form which
could be adopted. Some may hint at a
gradual growth of opinion adverse to the
monarchy, but we do not believe that it
will ever manifest itself to the extent of
such a drastic change as is suggested. The
remarkable woman who now wields the
sceptre is bowel down with years, and it
cannot be very long, though we hope it may,
before she must surrender the rule to her
son, the Prince of W ales, and we believe
that his accession to the throne will be received with satisfaction by the people,
without prejudice to the affection with
which they now regard his royal mother.

Roman Walls in Germany and England.
Au important discovery has lately been
made by tho Herman areluoologists who aro
exploring the remains of the Roman frontier
wotks. locally stylo.l " Pfalilgraben or
Teufelsmauer," which cross Western tier-
many from the Rhine near Cohlenz to the
Danube near Rogensburg. These works
consist of substantial rampart and ditch or,
near the Danube, of a rough stone wall,
with forts and towers at suitable intervals,
and the Gorman Government has lately appointed a Kcichlimes Commission to explore
the wholo scientifically.
A speedy result has been the addition of
a new feature to the works. In front, that
is on tho hostile side, a small ditch has
been discovered, which contain large stones
set up edgeways in continuous line, wedged
upright by small stones and bottomed with
coal, potsherds, and other things which
clearly did not grow on the spot. This
discovery corresponds to certain statements
in the writings of the Roman land surveyors, and seems lo show that the demarcation
of the frontier was originally a civil affair.
The lino of the rampart suggests the same
conclusion, for it pursues a straight course
without regal il to tactical positions or possibilities of defence. The frontier lino was
a civil, military matter.
Curiously enough, says an English paper,
wo have lately had reason to form a very-
similar conclusion with respect to our own
Roman frontier which crosses England from
Newcastle to Carlisle, and is usually call,' 1

The goneral result of tho observations
Hindu was to oonfirtn the theory thai tho
vallum, or carthwnik which runs soulh of
the actual stone wall, was a picoo of civil
and not of military engineering, and tl
seems probable that it preeeded tho stone
wall. In othcr words, the Romans lirsi
made a frontier on the principles of civil
engineering, marking it by earthworks and
a ditch, and wcre then compelled to fi rtil'v
it with a stone wall, which In many places
dovinlca from the earlier line in order to

The conclusion to bo derived from both

was, it was not essentially a military matter, But thoy had no civilized enemy to

Tho Vale of Andorra is, as most readers
arc probably awaie, one of thc three really
happy and contented States in '���lurope.
The oilier two are lhe principality of Monaco and the smail republic of Saint Marino.
Andorra, which figures as a mere speak on
lhc map, stands between Franco on the
north and Spain on the Soulh, and is reckoned by those who have seen it oue of the
most charming spots in thai Pyrenees. There
are 9,000 inhabitants, who, with a lew
exceptions, are either shepherds or cultivators of the soil, "The Emperor with

liberty, The Slate is governed by a council
composed of twenty-four members elided
each year, and from among the elders ir
tho community he who is considered tht
wisest and is tiie mo-t respected is chose!
as President for life.
li appears that the State has been tret
from ciime since tho end ol the soventeontl
century, and when that matte;- is allude!
to by any of the Inhabitants they invar!
ably make the sign of the cross. The par
ticular crime appears to have been tho
result of a love affair, All public duties
are performed gratuitously, with the exception of Borvicoi rendered by the two
notaries who practise there, and who
obtain payment when thay are employed ;
hut pray think of it, only two notaries in a
population of 0,100!
The head of every family, whether represented by lather or eldest son, is supreme.
Either the ono or the other is implicitly
obeyed, as ii bas always been the custom
ill patriarchal families. Andorra is too near
to the Spanish frontier for its inhabitants
to have entirely escaped the influence
of pride of caste which characterizes tho
former nation. Indeed, there is no prouder
raco in the world than thc Andorrans;
they could give points lo the noblest hidalgo. The Andorran'a word is his bond, and
oue might very naturally ask. What cau
the two notaties possibly have to do'.' Ths
men are all soldiers, but in their annals,
which are all in manuscript, there is no
mention of any battle having been fought
within the last ten centuries. They tell
the time principally by buu dials, and df
without actors, broker1, an I policemen.
The iinprmiou p.-il i :e.l at sight of thc
magnificent pine-capped mountains in the
Vale of Andorra, split up here and there
by torrents which come rushing down their
sides, and. form al tlieir base two rivers the
Ordino nnd the Embaliro is one of enchantment. The Lowlands of the valleys, bordered by gigantic chestnut and walnut trees,
arc rich in crops of golden corn, among"
which the vine and olive trees spread their
twisted branches. Herds of cattlo browso
on the green plains, die snow-white fleeces
of the sheep shining liko silver beneath ilia
rays of the setting sun. Intersecting

if the half tamo bears of tho Pyrenees werii
only hold enough, lhey would put in
an appearanoe in the square opposite the
church of Andorra and dance to amuse the
children.
It is in this arcadian spot that enterprise
is naturally anxious in view of progressive
eventualities of erecting telegraph poles aud
affixing wires which, at all events for the
present, could serve no nsefi'l purpose
beyond providing a perch for the numerous
birds Hying about the country. Moreover,
where it is a question o: directing the electric current, a circumference of a'few hund-
red miles mors or less in transit can make
no difference, Owing to iis geographical
and pastoral conditions the Vale of Andorra
has prospered outside the stir and turmoil
ofa busy world, satisfied with it own traditional history, and unregretful of having no
glorious deeds to record.

It ia a pity tbo electors of West
Kootenny, nnd itisre especially of tln*
Boveletoke division, huvo not thought
it worth while to put their names ou
the voting list.    According to the
returns from tie Provincial Seero-
tnry'e office the number on the list ou
the' 31st Mnrch last wns ne follows:���
Enst Kootenny, 517; West Kootenny,
285.  Of this 285 Eeveletoko is credited with 79.   There mu6t surely be
Some mistake, iib we looked over tbe
Eevelstoke list ft short time ago nnd
eoiinted 280 names on it.   But be
this as it mny, it shows gront negligence ou tfto pffl of fovelsjoke people in treating.'tlaia important matter
as of no coiiHiM]nonce.   An eloction
lakes place  noxt   yenr, nnil if  we
desire to fleet tho mini of our choice
We must lmvo evory oitlzeu entitled
toa vote on tbe list.   Seventy-nine

province.   Some people seem to huvo
the Wen Hint whon thev pay tlieir
Provincial Revenue tax the collector
will put thoir names on tho voting
fist, but the mere fact of paying this
lit* does not entitle n man to vote,
fie must fill out a form, which can be
