Messrs. Angus McKay and Sam
Hill arrived down from liig Band on

The Columbia river is very nan-ii--
tive to the weather. It has fallen"
quite three feet because of the oool
days we experienced in the early
pari of llie wo-1!;. The past two days-
having been scorchers we may expect to see a corresponding rise in
the water, But there will he no'
danger of nn overflow this year now.
There will ho an excursion to the
beautiful Naknap on Friday next,
leaving the Sun lit r Wharf at 5.3(>
a.m. It was not uutil this morning
that the arrangements for engaging
the steamer could bo concluded, uud
therefore the trip cannot be advertised as it should be. But it is hoped*
it will reach the knowledge of eSough
people to insure the projectors of the-
excursion against fiuauciul lose.- It
will be the first, last, aud OtggtX*
cursion from Eevelstoke this jenaon?
Take your family with you and have1
a day's thorough enjoyment. This-
will positively be the only excursion
this year. Dominion Day will be'
colohrated at Nakusp in a first-class
manner, The L.ittou will return to
Iievelstoke about 0 p.m., before dark.
Anyone wishing to stay the night at
Nakusp cau return to Eevelstoke next
morning by str. Columbia.
To gain the public confidence is
essential to business success, and it-
cau only be gained by a steady course
of faithful dealitig with them. It is
by this course that Messrs. Tuckett-
k Son have secured the great success-
of their "Myrtle Navy" tobacco. This1
confidence is not only a source of
business to the firm, but also a source1
of economy whioh the consumers get
lhe benefit of. The merchant never'
loses a moment of time in examining'
the quality of the tobacco. The name
fixes the quality ns absolutely ns the
mint stamp fixes the value of tho
guinea. It is not even necessary fof
the commercial traveller's trunk to-
be burdened with a sample of
"Myrtle Navy." All his customers-
know what it is. und know in ant
instant when it has beeu supplied.-
There is no room for any dispute
about it. No waste of time or post-
age in writing complaints about it,,
These may look like tuties to the*
uninitiated, but they save money
a,id enulile merchants to perform the*
work of distribution at the smallest
possible cost. They are part of the
reasons why the finest quality of
tobacco grown cau be sold at so oheap
a price.

Mr. Drew wa! tho manager ofMe.-stoke
Hunk, residing ovor its offices in the High
Street of that small cathedral town. On
tho morning of the day on which this story
opened, he was harrying over his breakfast
in order to get away from the repinings of
a discontented wife, who was upbraiding
him for being a man with " no ambition."
" We ought to take a higher position,"
said Mrs. Drew.
" Lot iis be contented as we are, my dear,
I am happy in my own station of life," answered he.
" you dnn't push,"
"Certainly not to be thrust back again."
"Hut you must confess that we are passed
ovor. Lady Conipton did not invito us to
hor garden fete; yet the Ki Hers were there,
and he's only a doctor, and us poor as a
church mouse,"
"lie cured her bad leg, my dear."
"If you please, it was the servants he attended. One day, hearing she had rheumatics in her knee, he recommended camphorated nil, that's ull he did."
"Al any rate she walks now quite as well
us yon ilo, and declares that he cured her.
You have little to complain of, Martha, I
am sure, liut very nice people invite us. We
dined last week ntthe Sub-dean's in the pre-
chits."
"Bother the Sub-dean I He was only a
tutor al Cambridge, and married a governess
���and there was nobody of uny consequence
asked to meet us���only old lawyer Brampton, Ins deaf wife, and the new organist at
the cathedral; while a few days afterwards
they gave another dinner party with the
Dean ami Lady Charlotte and two K.C.H.s!"
" In small parties, my dear, people should
only be brought together of nearly the same
social position," replied the hank manager,
very sensibly.
" I consider myself as much u lady as the
Dean's wife���as good as any in the county,
and better than most in the town," replied
Mrs. Drew, reddening with anger. " No ;
it's as I've always said, you don't make
enough of yourself; you've no ambition I"
Mr. Drew looked al his watch, bolted Ins
tonst, drank his remaining collee, and hurried away. He stopped at the door, however, to tire a parting shot. " It'snot what
we consider ourselves, Martha ; it is what
wcarc in other people's opinion." Then he
lied. Mrs. Drew shed a few angry tears,
and set hersolt to consider how she could
alter the existing state of things.
It is a reniurkttblecircumstancc frequently
occurring, that when people are happy and
prosperous without a serious care in tho
world, they invent a grievance ; and thia
silly woman was discontented because she
could not enter the society to which neither
her birth nor her education entitled her.
" A benevolent purpose would be a good
way of getting in wiih them -a fancy bazaar
for a charity, if Ihe Mayor would lend the
town hall,"she soliloquized. " When they
know me, and what a superior lady-like
person 1 really am, they would cultivate
my acquaintance." This and similar
thoughts occupied Mrs. Drew's vacant mind
that morning for some time, when there was
a ring at the house-bell, and a visitor waa
announced.
Her face grew black, and the frown on
her brow reappeared as she heard l he name. ���
It, was a visitor who seldom called more I
than once in six months, and was not usher-;
ed iuto her drawing-room���a choice apart- j
meet overcrowded with showy furniture���
but into a parlour opening from the hall.
This visitor was an old man, tall, thin,
who had been handsome in earlier life, with
well-cut features, a fair pale face, ami light
gray eyes. He win dressed in a drab-
coloured suit of hone-spun, and wore leath-:
er leggings, as is the fashion of country people. He was Isaac Twyford, the miller at
Hoby, a small village at some ten miles distance, His face brightened into a smile
when Mrs. Drew sii'-d into lhe room : he
advanced to meet ne.-,   putting out his
hand, in which she condescendingly pla 1
the tips nt her lingers.
���"Well, Martha, said he, "as usual you
do no', seem to he pleased at seeing mc.
"four worthy husband is always friendly:
one would ��� ippose that he waa mv relation,
insteadof you.'
���'What is it you expect, uncle" People
cannot always go on in the same groove, I
have been married sixteen years and quite
stepped out of my early sphere. Im sure
I'm always civil to you,"replied Mrs. Drew
with a sigh.
"Vou are pretty well so, perhips, but
there seems no real watmth in you. for I am
a lone man, and you are a blood-relation���
my nearest kin; I have felt . void since
since" diere his voice faltered and grew
husky, "since Elizabeth left her old fati er
" Don't mention her iame in my presence I" cried Mrs. Drew, holding up her
hands in abhorrence, "She's not to ���
mentioned in a decent lady's I o
"Stay, Martin: notso fast, Elizabeth
waa lawfully married to the rascal���please
lo remember that. She is a.s honest as yourself "���hesaid this fiercely "she mad
mistake in her choice���taking lacquer for
gold : and in leaving her lion,,-. .'.- i
mind : we'll droptho subjei * I -.- not
to talk tboul the poor girl; my visit is for a
different purpose,'
��� -, ou have i purpose, then iai I she
inquisitively
The old man drew I i- ch or near
saying lonfidentiallj   " I've justcome
Mr. l-'r.uiipton's; I ve been making i
will."
" A new will I" repeated his nib, ���-, ipen-
ing her eyes,   " What, is that for ?"
" Vou shall hoar. It is twelve yea . e
my girl left aie; sho find her husband went
:,, Australia, that is cortain, Some lime
ifter I heard they had -one to Canada, Mow
all traces appear to he lost, If Eliza ioi
returns in lhe course of the next, ton yean,
-ii,- will inherit my property ; if nol, as my
next of kin -I have no relations, save very
distant ones���it will according to law, re
vert to you."
Mrs. Drew's face brightened np, "As
yonr brother's daughter, I suppose so,"
said ahe; "though ten years soom a hum
while to wait."
" I have not felt well lately; and for
Home daya there has been an unaccountable
weight on my spirits, as if something were
going to happen ; 10 I thought I would
make a new will, leaving my forgiveness to
my mistaken child, to whom, perhaps, f
was too severe when I disinherited her:
but I have taken care the rascal shall never
claim a penny of it I"
"It'sall news. Vou must, have some refreshment���a hot chop, and a glass of good
.win annuel! eoniiaiiiy, I ingulf me oeil ior
luncheon.
The old miller did not refuse her offer:
he had felt his loneliness of late i and
though his niece was not affectionate, yet
he found a species of comfort in being with
a relative.
After his luncheon, and talking of bygone days and old friends, which did him
as much good, he brightened up ; and parted
with her on more friendly terms than they
had been for some years. He had other
business to transact in the town, he said,
and must get back home, for it looked as if
it were going to be a wet night.
" Did you drive in, uncle?" asked she.
"No," he answered: "I rode over on
Cray Dobbin. " 1 have put him up at the
Crown."
And ao they parted, the old man just
touching her brow with his lips.
"Delightful!" cried Mrs. Drew to herself,
when she waa alone, rubbing her hands
with satisfaction. " Everybody saya he's
rich. Really, he looks ai if he were booked
���vory shaky. Seventy is not such a great
age ; but fretting for that minx Elizabeth
has undermined him. Will she ever return,
I wonder? That's the question. I think
she must ho dead, or she would have bothered him for money before this. That husband of hers reckoned to make monoy of his
father-in-law. Roughing it iu the colonies
would soon wear her out. Pool that slit-
was, to run away from a good home with a
man who had nothing! Well, perhaps it
may make it better for other people."
It ia seen hy the tenor of her thoughts
that Mrs. Drew was an unfeeling, worldly
woman,
Mr, Twyford had scarcely left the house
an hour, when another ring at the door-
hell announced a visitor.
"A person wishes to see you for a few
minutes, mum," said the nvtid-servant.
"A man or woman ?" asked her mistress.
"She's a faded-like sort of lady," answered Sarah.
"With a begging-letter, I'll be hound���or
somebody worrying for a subscription," exclaimed the projector of the bazaar for
charitable purposes. "I'll not see her. Tell
her I am engaged."
Presently Sarah returned. "She saya,
mum, as how she'd be very much obliged if
you'd see her just for a minute."
"When I say no, I mean it, replied Mrs.
Drew shortly; then listening, she heard the
visitor depart.
Ten minutea afterwards, her husband's
voice sounded from the foot of the stairs in

the " faded lady," and brought her into his
house through the privr.te door of communication.
" Martha, Martha, come down!" he called out; when she descended, wondering.
"You littlo know who is in there," whispering, and motioning over his shoulder towards the parlour door. " lie civil to her."
" Whoever is it?" said Mrs. Drew, opening the door and entering the room.
The faded Ddy rose from the jhair on
which she had been seated, with au air ot
fatigue. Faded indeed���but still beautiful j
though the face was white and wan, it retained its perfect oval; the classical brow
and charm of largelustrouaeyes-toobright,'
���for it was the brilliancy of consumption.
Her figure was fragile and drooping ; her
attire all too thin and inappropriate to the
season, damp with rain, and in the fashion
of bygone years.
" Elizabeth I" she cried, halting, struck
with dismay.
" Yea," replied the poor wreck, in a sighing voice. " ] have come back once more ;
and have called to aak if you will break the
news of my return to my father. I fear
going to him suddenly : at his age the anr-
prise might be too much for him. I must

"I'll not mix myself up in anything of
tie kind !" returned Mrs. Drew angrily.
" It's all very tine saying you've come liack
to ask his forgiveness, now you are poor,
as I conclude you are"���glancing at the
worn shabby dress. " Vou should have
thought ut it when you were prosperous."
" I have never orospered.'
" Martha I" said the bank manager reproachfully.
" la my father wei! ?"
" I shall give you no information. I
washed my hands of you years ago, when
you ran aw.vy with an adventurer -." and ahe
turned her back, as if to leave the room ;
out Mr. Drew gave her a warning glance as
she passed him, which caused her to remain. The kind hearted man could assert
himself when thoroughly roused, and then
- wife gi ��� the worst of it.
He now seated himself beside Elizalieth.

" No, no I " cried Elizabeth energetically;
" that would be impossible ; he is a good
kind man."
At this moment Mr. Drew returned, with
a radiant face. " I soon found your father,
my dear," he said, " who waits to receive
you with open arms at the Crown.
He declined coming here. You must
be guarded in what you say, rcmemoer.
Your husband's name had best not be

Come; I have a Ily waiting; 1 will take you

Elizabeth raised thc bank manager's nand
to her lips and kissed it.
"She can't live, with that hollow voice,"
soliloquized Mrs Drew when thoy loft tho
room. "1 shall not have long to wait for
the property."
Elizabeth Ashworth, after an affecting
and perfect reconciliation with her fattier,
sought her husband at the small railway
inn at tho outskirts of the town where he
awaited her return. He was furious when
she related the results of the interview she
had unexpectedly obtained, which were,
that he would receive her back home and
reinstate her as his heiress, on condition
that she parted from her husband, whose
treachery in beguiling a girl of eighteen
from her father's roof he could never forgive.
Ashworth, after upbraiding his wife in
not having overcome the old man's prejudice, rushed from the house.
Poor Elizabeth was found lying on the
floor in a fainting lit. Overcome by excitement and fatigue, she was carried to a bedroom, a doctor sent for, who pronounced
her condition to be precarious through
failure of the heart's action. Although receiving every care and attention, she never
rallied, and by morning's dawn she had
passed away, being mercifully spared the
knowledge of her father's tragic end.

An interesting instance of the magic of
the telegraph, an illustration of the way it
can annihilate space, outrun the sun and
perform mystifying jugglery with old Time's
hour glass and with the calender, and an
object lesson in every-day science.are afforded in connection with the execution of the
sentence of Murderer Deeming in Australia
on Monday. Deeming waa hanged at 10:01
A. M. and the news and details of the execution were read by the readers of the
morning papers at the early breakfast table,
and even before daybreak that day. If the
execution had been on any other day the
news would doubtless have been printed in
special editions of the evening papers the
day previous to that of the execution for the
news of Deeming's death was received in To
ronto before !l o'clock on Sunday evening-
apparently thirteen hours before he waa
hanged. The news was received in America
first at Montreal. The telegraph beat the
sun by almost a whole day,
The message had to travel the course-
traversed by the-sun, too, and did not make
the gain by cutting across lota or doubling
back and stealing a lap. With a cable
under the I'acilic th" message might have
doubled on the sun's track and gained a day
in a minute or so. Telegrams from Australia must take the western or sunward
course, and make the full circular tour.
The message left Melbourne, on the far side
of Australia, very soon after 10 o'clock
Monday morning, travelled about 15,000
miles, was retransmitted thirteen times
through as many different station* and different lengths of liable reaching this continental 8.30 p. m. Sunday. The difference
in time between Toronto and Melbourne is
fourteen hours and forty minutes, so that
when Deeming waa on the gallows it was
7:20 .Sunday evening in Toronto and the
mesaage travelled the I"),000 miles in the
remarkably quick time of leas than an hour
and a half.
This was the route, the message passing
from one cable and one set of instructions to

The Ontario Department of Agriculture
has in press the following bulletin on Rape
Culture by Prof. .Shaw and Mr. Zavitz :
The principal objects of thia Bulletin are:
1. To call the attention of the farmers to
the value of the rape crop to the agriculture
of Cauada. '2. To make known to them the
various uses to which it may be put, viewed
from the standpoint of our experience with
it at this station, ,'i. To speak of the best
modes of growing it under our conditions
of soil and climate, so far as wc have been
able to ascertain these up to the present
time. .Since Bulletin LX was issued we
have gained not a little information in reference to the growth of this plant, the uses
to which it may 1 e put and the modes of
feeding it; the information thus gleaned ia
made prominent in the Bulletin.
DESCRIPTION ok Rave,���As many persons
do not know what rape is, a brief description
of the plant may be necessary. It bears a
close resemblance to the Swede turnip in
the early stagea of its growth, but it usually attains a greater height than the turnip
and produces more of stem and leaves. It
has a fusiform and stringy root while that
of the turnip is bulbous. On average soils,
when grown in drills it uaually reaches the
height of from one to two feet, but on soils
very rich in vegetable matter it sometimes
attains the height of at loast three feet.
There are several varieties of rape, but the
only kind grown as a pasture in this country is known as the Dwarf Essex.
Aiuitaiiimtv to Climate.���Like the
turnip rape is adapted to temperate climates. In all probability it will be found
to grow in temperatures that are inclined
to be cool rather than warm. It seems to
grow more vigorously in our climate in the
late rather than the early summer, and it
continues to grow until the time of severe
frosts when not matured at an earlier period.
It is scarcely probable that rape will live
through the winter in this latitude and yet
retain sufficient vigor to produce a crop of
seed the following summer aa in Great
Britain. In our experience much of it has
perished from the intensity of the frosts.
Adai'TAiuutv ok Soils���The most suitable soils tor growing rape are fairly moiat,
free-working loams, rich in organic matter.
Black loams are very suitable after the
plants once get a start in them owing to the
large amount of liumua which they contain.
Muck swamps when drained yield magnificent crops, and the rape grown upon them
tends to reduce the excess of organic matter
which they contain. (Soils that are suitable
' -r growing good crops of turnips and corn
irili alao he found well adapted in most instances to the growing of rape, It will not
grow well on stiff clays, poor sands or ou
any kind of soil deficient in plant food,
Puck in tiik Rotation.���As rape is an
excellent cleaning crop when grown in drills
and cultivated, it may with much advantage be placed between two crops of grain.
As it luxuriates in soils abounding in vegetable matter it may be grown witli much
success on an overturned sod, inverted in
the autumn or in the spring, or just after
cutting the first crop of clover. We have
obtained excellent results after sod overturned in August and sown with rye, cut
green, and then followed by rape.
Preparation ok tiik Sou..���The preparation of the soil will to some extent depend upon the rotation. When rape ia the
only crop grown and the land ia not foul
thorough spring cultivation will be found
sufficient. When the land requires cleaning
autumn cultivation followed by frequent
stirring of the soil iu the spring will be
found effective iu reducing weed life and in
securing that fineness of tilth and retention
of moisture so helpful in the growth of
rape. A favorite method with ua is to aow
a crop of rye in September, to cut it when
well out in head with the binder for winter
fodder, or when in tlie blossom, to be made
into silage. But it would also serve a good
purpose to sow the rye in August and pas
ture fall and spring until the first of June.
After the rye iu either case the land ia at
once prepared for rape. The preparation
consists in plowing carefully, rolling as soon
as plowed, harrowing once a week and making the land iuto drills from 22 to 21 inches
apart just before sowing the rape. When
rape is grown aa a catch-crop it may be
sown broadcast or in drills after the removal
of the previous crop. When sown broadcast the ��� ground may be turned over
with the gang-plow, but when grown in
drills and cultivated the ordinary plow
should be used.
Fertilizers kor Rape.���Although rape
in an average season will give a fair return
from ordinary land it is unusually responsive to large applications of farmyard manure. In average soils, therefore, it is more
than probable that the application of a complete fertilizer will give good results, but in
our experience the largest increase of crop
has heen obtained from the application of
nitrate of soda anil the next largest from
the application of salt.
Skkh anii Sowing,��� The most suitable
time for sowing rape in nearly all parts of
Ontario is from June 25th to July 5th although a fair crop may be obtained when it
is sown earlier, and a full crop may sometimes bo grown as late as the end of July.
For catch crops it should be sown as soon as
possible alter the previous crop has been
removed.
The mode of sowing and the amount of
seed used will depin.l upon the object
sought, When the i round does not require
cleaning and also on muck swiunpa and
humus tolls generally It may be sown broad-
east al the rale of 3 lo ,'i pounds of seed per
aore, When sown aa a catch crop or for
green manure similar amounts will suffice,
and the mode of sowing is the same. When
sown in drills from I lo 2 pounds of seed
may he used, according to the condition of
th,- ground. The seed ia ordinarily sown
with a turnip drill which puts in two rows
at a time. It may be obtained Irom any
of our leading seedsmen and usually at a
cobI notexcoedhlg 10 cents per pound.
Cl'laTIVATION, When the rough leaf has
made n good stall In tho rape the cultivator
may bo introduced, ll should run as close
In the line of the rows as is consistent with
the safety of the plants, and the cultivation
should bo frequent until the topsof the rape
havo made a near uppiuaehj-etween the
rows,
When the land is fairly clean no hand-
hoeing is required, but when it is foul it
will be necessary to go along the line of the
drill with th" hand-hoe once or twice to remove weed��which need not of necessity cost
more than *l per acre. No attention is
given ordinarily to thinning rape,
Iue Use oi Rape.���Rape is valuable as
manure, and as a cleaning crop.
1. Rape as a pasture. Rape is an excellent pasture for sheep and lambs and for
cattle that are being fattened, and so far
as we can judge from our limited experience,
it will also furnish good pasture for swine.
The nutritive ratio of green rape as given
by Wolfe is 1 i2,B, while that of red clover
in blossom is only 1:5.7. All things considered thc value of rape for fattening ia
from two to three times greater than that
of one cutting of a crop of clover of a similar
area.
In 1NSD we pastured -IS lambs on rape; in
1800, 537 head, and 1891,086 head. A number of these in each instance were carried
on into the winter after the season for
pasturing was over, and it was found that
they fed well when taken off the rape
and put into winter quarters.
2. Rape as a catch crop. The extent to
which rape may be grown as a catch crop is
only limited by the desires of the farmer
and the nature of the season as to the presence or absence of moisture, it may follow any grain crop that has been reaped
early and that has been sown with graaaes
or clovers. In 1891 we grew rape in drills
on 2.IS acreaof land which had already
produced an extraordinary crop of wheat,
lit) lambs were pastured on the rape grown
upon it for 2d days without any additional
food. The aggregate increase in live weight
was at thc rate of 179 pounds per aero,
which at .I cents per pound gives $8,95 aa
the food value of the rape without couaid-
ering the increaae in value of the original
weight of carcaae.
,'l. Rape as a soiling orop, Ourexperienco
with rape aa a soiling crop is somewhat
limited, hut we have found that when it is
cut before the snow falls and put up in heaps
of some size in tho field it will keep for
several weeks. It may then be drawn from
these heaps when wanted and fed to animals
indoors. Although milch cows cannot be
pastured upon rape owing to the taint
which it would give the milk we have good
reasons for believing that if it is carried and
fed to the cows after each milking the results will he satisfactory.
4. Rape us a green manure. Although
ourexperienco in growing rape as a green
manure is limited, thero need he no doubi
as to its pre-eminent adaptability for that
purpose especially when grown as a catch
crop. The roots permeate the soil and the
plants when not matured will continue to
grow until the time of hard frost.
5. Rape as a cleaning crop. As a cleaning
crop we have none that will compare with
rape in all round effectiveness, On soils
suitable to its growth almost any of the
more noxious forma of weed life can be eradicated in a single season, with wise management, except in so far as the aeeda of the
same remain in the ground without germination.
Precautions to be Ouservkd in Grow-
ini! Rape,���Cattle and sheep should never
be turned upon rape when hungry lest they
eat too freely of it. When sheep are put
upon il they may be left there, but when
they have free access to a pasture they will
probably do better. They should have salt
at will but usually do not require grain. On
very frosty mornings, they should be kept
off the rape for a time. The owners of purebred stock should use much care when pasturing valuable animals on rape,
CONCU'SIDN'S.
1. That in nearly all the cultivable portions of the Dominion the climatic conditions will be found suitable to the growing
of rape.
2. That a k.ige proportion of the soil of
Ontario is well adapted to the growth of
rape.
3. That rape ia specially valuable as a pasture for fattening sheep and lambs owing to
the season of 1 he year at which it grows, and
lo its high feeding value.
4. That it is an excellent food when preparing lambs for winter fattening.
5. That one acre of rape grown in drills
immediately after a crop of rye cut aa a
green tood will paature from 10 to lli lambs
for from 2 to 2\ months, and that when
grown as the sole crop of the season under
favorable conditions it will suataiu a much
larger number.
6. That ordina'y grade iambs when pastured on rape without any other food supplement will make an average gain of 10
pounda per month.
7. That rape is admirably adapted for
growing aa a catch crop to be fed off or
plowed under as a green manure.
8. That rape oa a cleaning crop ia probably
without a rival in our present system of
agriculture.
9. That much care and prudence must be
exercised iu pasturing auimals on rape or
aerioua losses may follow.
10. That rape is not an exhaustive crop
on the soil when pastured or), as what has
been taken from the cultivable area ia returned to it aud something in addition.
Ho Wonder-
Teacher���" Why do you come to school
with your hands and face so dirty, and your
clothes all dust?"
Little Boy���" We're eleanin' house."
The British Govornment, being heartily
tired of the constant difficulties with Newfoundland, has intimated toourGovernment
that it would tend to smooth over many
differences if the colony could be induced to
enter the Canadian Confederation. With
this view negotiationa are now on foot, but
nothing has yet been officially made public.
Several attempts have already been made
to induce Newfoundland to enter the Confederation; but they have failed. In 1SII9
a conference was held between the Privy
Council of Canada and delegates from Newfoundland, at which a basis of union was
drawn up. Canada was to assume the public debt of lhe colony, pay a lump sum of
$150,000 per annum and a subsidy of 80
cents a head, and grant a Parliamentary representation of eight members in the Canadian House of Commons and four in the
Senate. A steam service was alao to be
maintained by Canada. Nothing ever came
of the proposals, but now they are to be renewed, ami there is a vory general feeling
that the negotiations will be successful.
The leading tnerchanta who are interested
in the Newfoundland trade are in favor of
the scheme, as they believe it would do
away with all the differences which have
been a serious inconvenience to inter-colonial commerce. A Woman's Weapon.
"What is a woman's weapon/"
I asked n charming girl;
She dropped her lashes shyly
And stroked a vagrant curl;
Then consciously she niiirniurcd-
This rosebud nowly out;
"1 have a strong suspicion
Her weapon is a pout."
" What is a woman's weapon 1"
1 asked a lover true,
lie turned him In a maiden
Withcyesof heavenly blue,
Her velvet lips wero parted,
All innocent of guile.
And eagerly he answered:
"Her weapon is a smile."
"What is a woman's weapon!"
I asked a poel then.
Wiih sudden Inspiration
tie seized upon his pon.
"(Hi, I could write a thousand,"
He cried in accents clear;
"Hut woman's surest weapon,
J grant -on, is a tear."
The Work of Women.
It is exceedingly aggravating to find
women discarding work just as it becomea
financially profitable and men taking it up.
Yet this happens in numberless caaes. As
soon as one employment becomes of serious
import and of value enough for men to
adopt it, women are quite likely to discard
it, or are frightened out of competition with
their stronger brethren, Several centuries
ago, when the mass of mankind was occupied with feats of arms, women were the
only leeches known. It waa considered a
most womanly act to study the virtues of
herbs and medicines, and even to acquire
the art of surgery. Yet, till within the
last score of years, it has been a common thing to sneer at a woman physician as
those who have stepped out of the limits
prescribed for their sick, Gradually the prejudice aca'iist the woman physician is being
overcome. Many other cases might be instanced where women have gono back into
lucrative employment* from which they
had been pushed by the superior force of
men and made a success of thom. The most
conservative thinker could hardly say that
butter-making was not a woman's employment, but as soon as butter-making is conducted in a large creamery, where it becomea a matter of a thousand pounds a
week instead of fifty, and is conducted on
scientific principles ao that the result is
sure, it is done by men. The tact is that
our farmer's wives, witli their long experience in butter-making, are being driven out
of an excellent and lucrative employment
by the engagement of male and alien hands.
No one doubts that the business of creameries is a success, yet it is to be regretted
that in woman's peculiar sphere she has not
made this success her own, and has allowed
the middlemen to come between her and the
market.
Why should not farmers'wives and daughters in a large neighborhood organize and
, establish a co-operative creamery, to which
they would all furnish the cream? There are
abundance of farmers' daughlera seeking
employment in the cities studying art,
studying what not, who could do all the
work ol such an establishment except the
work of lifting heavy buckets, which ought
to be done by a male employe. There ia no
essential part of the work of butter-making
which muy not he better entrusted to
women's hands than to men's. The establishment should, of course, bo conducted on
strict business principles. There should
be agencies for the sale of the butter in
cities and villages where it will command
the best price, and such agencies should be
in charge of daughters of those interested
in the co-operative scheme. There is no
possible reason why many of the army of
unemployed women who are continually
drifting to the cities for work should not
be aided by such a project as this. There is
always a demand for home-made bread and
cake, home-made pickles and home-made
preserves, at prices which will compete
with the inferior produce of this kind now
for sale. Canning and pickling establishments of a similar kind might also be conducted on the co-operative plan by unemployed women.
It is not our purpose to add to the many
burdens of the farmer's wife. It ia not a
question so much of whether she finds
enough to do as whether what she does
gives the beat result. There is no use of
fanners of limited means educating their
daughters for teachers, for the ranks of
teachers arc over full. There is little more
use in educating thom to write poetry as a
remunerative piofession. What they need
iB practical employment, which will bring
a practical money return.
To Prevent the Odor of Perspiration,
The unpleasant odor produced by perspiration is frequently the source of vexation to persona who are subject to it.
Nothing is simpler than to remove this odor.
It is only necessary to procure some of the
compound spirits of ammonia and place
about two tablespoontuls in a basin of water.
Washing tlie face, hands, and arma with
this leaves the skin as clean, sweet, and
fresh na one could wish. Tho wash ia perfectly harmless and very cheap.
Hints for the Household.
A house to be successfully papered must
be treated as a whole, not by piecemeal. In
other words, however diverse the coloring
of iifl several rooms they mual all harmonise.
A clothes-boiler tbnt is permanently set
on the range and filled and emptied by fau-
ceta ie a great relief from the lifting up and
down of thc heavy copper boiler full of
water.
Cleanliness of the nails is a very important essential. If possible never use a knife-
blade, but at the toilet a nail-brush and
plenty .of soap and water should always be
called into service.
It has frequently heen shown, by actual

People who are subject to catarrhal ailments have special need to be particular in
regard to their feet covering; they shoul.l
see to it that their feet are comfortably clad,
their shoes should have substantial soles,
and should come well up the ankles, and
not be laced or buttoned tight.

A Perpetual Person Now Living in the

Ills Plan or Gaining Inininrtnllly -How
He tarried ll Out.
A correspondent writes thai he knows a
man living i.i a certain region of the Rooky
Mountains who merely wished to live to be
500 years old at least and enjoy himself with
utter immunity from physical decay for lhat
period, and who attained the corporal condition necessary for the fulfilment of his desire by exchanging the gaseous part of his
organism for aluminium. On the occasion
of the correspondent's first meeting him he
explained his materialistic view-a of life and
his other Ideas at great length, and then
spoke of the remarkable project which he
eventually carried out.
I asked him, writes thc correspondent,
how he proposed to defeat the laws of nature ? No man in history had compassed
such an age, except those recorded in the
Old Testament.
"That," said he, "is precisely what confirms me in my belief. If Methuselah compassed nearly one thousand years, why
should not I reach half that span? The trouble is tint aome element in the human makeup ia wanting. I propoae to find it, and
with an electric battery which I propose to
invent I will force out the ephemeral and
weakening elements and introduce a more
substantial one."
"This ia sheer nonsense," I replied.
"The elements composing the human body
are so aptly and evenly adjusted that to disturb any oneof them would result in death,
so that you will only succeed in shortening
the life that God has given you."
At this point in the conversation he
paused for an instant, not from any lack ot
argument but in order that he might scan
me more closely, I waa no less interested
in observing him. He was a man about
thirty-six years of age, and I will never
forget while life lasts the picture he presented while he stood there, his fine form
outlined against the sky, his dark-blue
eyes lighted up with interest nnd deep
thought, his hands clasped as if he would
wring out the secret he so longed to possess.
Suddenly he was roused from hia contemplative mood, and with great deliberation took a paper package trom the inside
pocket of hia coat. Selecting a slip from
the bundle he handed it to me with a request
that I would read it.
I found the slip to read as follows:

Yes, I saw. It was plain to be seen that
the man was insane, but in such a case argument was useless, I was then on my
way to Helena, Mon., and was obliged to
be at that place on the following day to
meet a business engagement. I waa dealing
in mines, in those days, and expected to
meet a party of capitalists who had come
out for the purpose of buying a gold mine
which I had in hand. 1 would gladly have
convinced my friend of the utter futility of
his hopes, but deemed the taak beyond my
powers of persuasion.   So I bade him good-

apparatus, which is most complete, I sue-

times I was ready to give up in despair.
The variety of electric currents is almost
limitless. It waa a question of discovering
the right one ; and I thought at times 1
could never succeeded, I succeed in replacing
moat of the oxygen, carbon and hydrogen
in my body with that pure and Incorruptible metal aluminium, which I am abundantly able to prove. Aluminium, you will
understand, is almost precisely tiie weight
of wator, so that my weight is now nearly
the same as before and, what is infinitely
better, I posseaa the strength imparted hy
this wonderful material and am now ten
timea stronger than I was before. No
bacteria can enter my system, 1 am lorever

laws of gravitation, so that I may float
through space at will, and eventually I hope

perfected myselt a little further, so that the
breathing apparatus may be dispensed with
and I can subsist entirely upon electricity."
That I was dumbfounded at this statement can well be imagined. But 1 did not
dare ask any other questions, but sat gazing in stupid awe at this man who talked
of thing* deemed unknowable as if they
were as familiar to him as a b c.
" You seem to doubt me," he said. " I
will convince you, and you are the only man

they are not worth it." And with that he
walked out of the room, and returned presently with a carbon fully loaded.
" Take that," said he, and he thrust the
weapon into my hands and walked to the
other aide of the room. He turned, facing
me, and bared hia breast, which waa aa
white as the driven snow and shone like
silver. "Now take good aim and fire
directly at my heart."
" Oh I no, my friend," I replied, in great
distress, for 1 thought the man waa surely
crazy. But he insisted. I still refused,
and he touched a button on the wall and I
heard a gong sound. In a moment the workman 1 had seen in the yard entered. At a
sign from his master he took the gun from

I was so overpowered with thia performance that a feeling of faintness overcame

On arriving at camp I felt ashamed of my
weakness and resolved to return again, but
circumstances intervened which prevented

so, to my intense regret, I found the place

The Secret Out,
Two young meu who wore anxious to become fly fishermen, but had had neither
time nor money to indulge in the pastime,
and had only given serious thought to the
aport after they had become family men,
went, at the opening of thc trout season, to
a district where they had heard that the
1 mds and brooks running into mill ponda
were not closed to the public. Each chose
a different route. Oue came home with a
few small perch, which he assured his wife
were delicious pan fish, and were almost as
hard to catch aa trout, and wero considered
by many epicures to be the better fish. The
other man had a dozen or more fine trout to
show for his day's angling. Hia friend's
jealousy and astonishment found vent in
inquiries.
"Look here, Tom," he said, "this fly
fishing is as new to you as it is to me. How
do you manage to have always the same result? I've fished in the same brooks and
ponds, and nover got anything but perch."
Tom declared il was " all a matter of
skill and instinct," but Jack determined to
ferret out thc truth. He hired a small hoy
to keen Tom in sight from the time ho
hoarded the train until he reached the city,
and this is tho small boy's report :
" You see when ho got to It he just
went oil'on the hack road and dug about a
pint of worms, and then, before ho went on
the pond, he got a net full of killics Irom
the creek the other side of the dam. Then
he got a hoai and rowed around lhe pond
awhile, kind o' looking around, before he
anchored, and when he found the riglu
plucu ho threw out a fow worms, and then
gol out a book and begun to rend. After
a while he threw out more worms, and kept
on reading, and then he threw somekillies,
and I just thoughl ho was stark, staring
mad; but by and by he put away his book,
got out his pole, and I could see fish jumping
all around his boat. And then, 1 tell you,
he began lo fish,"
" Witli the Ily? " interrupted the hearer.
"Yos-zer, If you mean the new arran;;o-
