London, August 9—Erlvvnrd VII., by
the grace of Gctl, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and
of the British   Dominions   beyond   the

peror of India, was today crowned without a bitch, and tonight London is noisily celebrating the event.
In all respects the celebration was impressive and it was carried out with a
perfection of detail ond lack of accident
that bas rarely characterized similar displays. That pride of empire, which
marked Queen Victoria's jubilee, was
lacki ig, and in Its .stead there pervaded
all classes the keen recollection that only
six weeks ngo their king lay in danger
of death, and this today produced thankfulness and genuine sympathy for the
man rather thnn adulation for the king,
This feeling was verified by the archbishop of Canterbury when he inserted in
one of the coronation prayers the word->:
"For whose recovery we now give
thanks."
Yet this did not prevent the public
from voicing appreciation of such military display as the short procession gave
thein a chance to see. Marl Roberts,
commander-in-chief of the forces, was
once more the hero of the hour, aud
next to the king himself receiv d the
heartiest welcome of the assembled
crowds. "Here comes good old Hobs,"
was Invariably the signal for all tk-e re-
■erve power of British lungs to be
brought inlo play. Lord Roberts rode
alone and constantly bowed and smiled
acknowledgement of his greetings.
Lord Kitchner waa not so easily recognized, but he was seen bv most specla
tea as he rode with General Sir Alfred
Gaielee and Admiral Sir Kdward Ilobart
Seymour, and was tlie crowd's next favorite. At various points along tlie route
of the procession Lord Kitchner received
thunderous ovations, which he did not
acknowledge either by look or by bow,
but as Knglish crowd* are used to the
treatment from Lord Kitchener of Khartoum, it quite failed lo suppress enthusiasm,
But it was for the king aud queen
themselves that the people really let
themselves loose. Throughout the day,
wherever and whenever their majesties
were seen, the cheers were loud and
long, and especially was this so on the
return journey ol the king and queen lo
Buckingham palace
Until the booming of guns announced that the crowning of Kdward and
Queen Alexandria had beeu accomplished, there lingered in London's minds a
nervous apprehension that even at the
laat moment some untoward event might
once more p'unge the nation Into consternation. Wheu this was passed the
unrestrained jubilation was as much a
tribute to the king's popularity as it
was au evidence of relief from the tension of the lust few weeks, while the
scenes on the streets, th >ugh robbed of
many of the elements which usually accompany a great pageant, will long be
reihembered, perhaps somewhat tenderly by those who stocd in the stands at
windows, and on the sidewalks, to see
King Edward as if he had won bis
crown from the j'iws of death.
Iu Westmiuster Abbey the sceue waa
nothing less thun marvelous, Nearly
7000 members of the nobility, the clergy
and the gentry had gathered v.ith foreign princes, ambassadors, colonial rulers, Indian potentates and leaders from
the furthest quarters of the globe where
tbe Union Jack flies, to do honor to the
king.
Two Incidents in the service in lhe
abbey will live in lhe memory of all wbo
witnessed them. The first of Ihese centered around tha aged archbishop of
Canterbury. From the eomuicncfinent
of the service the archbishop had lhe
greatest difficulty in reading or remembering   the   prayers.     The   book   from
wbich his almost blind eyes endeavored
to read shook in his hands, and when
he came to place the crown upon King
Edward's head his huge frame, towering
above the seated king, swayed so violently that the bishop of Winchester
had to support him, while the dean of
Westminster put a guarding hand under
the crown. It was evident tbat tbe
archbishop could not see his king's head
and after groping around be was just
abont to complete the most important
part of the ceremony when it was discovered that he had the crown with the
back to the front. Slowly he raised it,
but too late to prevent the cheers from
prematurely bursting out with a loud
"God Save the King," Amid a tension
that had grown to a pitch of painful
nervousness, tbe archbishop finally
managed to place the crown correctly
upou the king's head.
A few minutes later came the climax
to his feebleness, He was kneeling to
do first homage of all tbe subjects of
the king when suddenly be almost
fainted and would have fallen upon the
king's knees had not King Edward firmly grasped both the prelate's bands and
lifted him to his feet. The bishops of
London, Winchester and Dudbaui then
clasped their arms around the archbishop. The king kissed ' his wrinkled
hands and the archbishop's head fell
back and his f.-et moved slowly and
mechanically, and thus he was more
carried than led from the throne to
King Edward's chapel, where he was
revived
The tremor which this event caused
had scarcely subsided when another exquisitely human touch varied the proceedings, and tbe king was forgotten
ie the fatber. Instead of merely accepting the homage of the prince of Wales
King Edward put bis arms around the
prince and kissed him and then recalled
bim and wrung his hand with a manliness of parental affection tbat brought
tears to many eyes.
To those who were able to see clearly
these two episodes, the magnificence of
the bejewelled women, the splendor of
the uniformed men, and even tbe historic grandeur of the coronation itself
became almost of secondary interest.
The queen's own crowning was brief
and simple. Wheu the four duchesses
went to hold a canopy over her majesty's
head, tbe duchess of Marlborough aod
the duchess of Portland led the way
They performed their duties excellently.
As the critical moment, for which the
peeresses bad long practiced, namely
tbe putting on of tbeir coronets at the
moment the queen was crowned, approached, a flutter of nervousness ran
through their ranks and coronets were
pulled out and patted and pinched into
shape. The faces of the women harden
ed with anxiety, and then all their arm*.
suddenly bent, and coronets large and
small were put in place, some crooked
and some straight. For the next five
miuutes the peeressses distegarded what
passed before them. First one and then
another turned around for advice and
help and then ensued a mutual pushing
of each other's coronets into place.
Among tbe philosophical peeresses was
Lady Stafford, who placidly allowed her
coronet to remain quite sideways neither asking nor receiving help. Among
the curious features connected with the
Amerlcau peeresses was tbe wearing by
Lady Craven of obi family robes, once
worn by tbe queen oi Bohemia, who
married a former Earl Craven.
IT IS  MORRISSEY NOW
LORD'S   DAV   ALLIANCE.
Tbe New Town Will Be Put On the
Market Soon.
THOMAS CRAHAN TO BE SOLE AGENT
Already a Big Demand for Property From Men Who Will
Engage in Business.
MINES   AND   COKE  OVENS   THE   BASIS
Cranbrook Herald.
South East Kootenay is soon to have
a new town. Messrs. Fosa and McDonald, who own the land at the junction
of tbe spur to the Morrisey coal mines,
lying between the C. P. R. and the
Great Northern railways, will place
their townsite on the market just as soon
as the final details of perfecting the title
are closed, wbicb will be within a few
days. Thomas Crahan, who made an
enviable reputation as a townsite man
while in charge of the town of Wardner,
has been given exclusive control of the
new town and was in Cranbrook Tuesday completing some of his arrangements. Mi. Crahan is recognized as a
great real estate hustler and it is safe to
say that the town of Morrissey will soon
be known In every province in Canada
and state in the Union.
"It is an ideal location for the building of a substantial, permanent town on
a sound basis," said Mr. Crahan. "It
will bave lhe Great Northern on one
side and tbe C. P. R. ou the other, aud
for ihe present will be the East Kootenay terminus of the Great Northern.
Tbere will be 600 coke ovens constructed within a short time, and the expert's
report shows that tbe Morrisey coal is
the best coking coal known on the
American continent today. There are
328 acres in the plat aud tbe Great
Northern depot will be on the towusite,
while the C. P. R. depot will be ouly
2,000 feet away. A large gang of men
will be put lo work at once clearing tbe
ground, and a sawmill will be put iu to
cut up the timber ou tbe ground. Already there are many business men anxious to purchase property and get up
buildings as eveayone recognizee that
Morrisey is bound to be a place of increasing business. We will bave a grea;
place there before snow flies. The people already appreciate that fact."
Oue of the first buildings of importance will be a $6,000 hotel, and F. E
Simpson, of The Herald, will put in a
newspaper. The townsite is so situated
that it will get the direct benefit of the
Morrissey coal mines, the two trunk
lines ot railroad and the vast coking
business that will be established at that
poiut. Tbese, alone, would make a
prosperous city on a desert.
A Convention Held In  Cranbrook   to Pro-
mole Its drouth
(ranltrook Herald.
The Rev. J. G. Shearer, B. A., general
secretary for Canada of the Lord's Day
alliance, is on a to ir through British1
Columbia organizing branches of the
alliance and holding conventions of the
branches already formed. Mr. Shearer
visited Cranbrook this week, and addressed a public meeting held in tbe
Presbyterian church Monday evening.
His subject was "The Battle for the Sab-
batfa in Canada," aud he talked of Ibe
necessity of more stringent laws in British Columbia, and the desire of workmen to see safeguards put around the
Sabbatb day.
On Tuesday morning a number of tbe
supporters of the movement met with
Rev. Shearer, wbo delivered a short address ou the subject, "Legislation for
the Protection of the Lord's Day in
British Colombia! What Is Needed aud
How to Get It." Rev. Fortune presided aud Rev. Beacbam was named as
secretary.
Strong resolutions were adopted set
ting forth the conditions in British Columbia and urging action to secure the
necessary legislation for improviug the
same were unanimously adopted, after
which the convention adjourned.
Odd Fellow's Qrave lu Africa.
"The bigglst and flnest grave Id South
Africa" says Tom Maltland wbo has
just returned from South Africa, "I*
that of the Odd Fellows among the
Canadian troops erected to the memory
of Campbell of Brandon, oue of tbe '.'ml
C. M. H.'s."
When he fell at Harts river, It being
known that he was an Odd Fellow, the
Odd Fellows among us aud tbe order
was numerously represented, picked out
a spot under a spreading, umbrageous
tree and there we placed the body
Over It we erected a gigantic cairn of
stones and surmounted the whole with
a huge Boer doorstep on which we carved a simple inscription. This we surrounded with a barbed wire fence.
Talk about Rhodes' grave! Cimpbells'
can be seen for miles around and looks
like a young kopje.
W.   W.   DOBLE   DEAD.
He Expires After a Weary  Illness   of  Several  Weeks.
Cranbrook Herald.
"Billy Doble is dead."
Although the end had been expected
for the past few weeks almost any day,
yet, when this announcement was made
ou the streets Wednesday forenoon, it
carried sorrow to tbe hearts of all. For
weeks Mr. Doble had been confined t <>
his room in St. Kugene hospital gradually sinking lower with heart disease.
There would be days when he seemed
brighter and the hopes of his wife nnd
friends would be revived only to be
dashed down again by serious sinking
spells. For weeks visitors have been
denied admittance to the sick room,
while the struggle with death went on
Monday night he had a bad spell, and
from that lime on it was only a question
of hours, until 4 o'clock Wednesday
morning, when tbe last spark of life disappeared and the fight was over.
Few men were better known in Soulfa
Bast Kootenay than W. W. Doble. He
came to Fort Steele five years ago from
Cornwall, Out., anil engaged In the lintel busiuess with his brother in-law, Q
J Shier, afterward selling out and entering the employ of M Mclones & Co.
as head bookkeeper. He was offa year
for his bealtn and spent oue summer in
Alaska, returning to Cranbrook and resumed bis position, continuing as district manager after the business was
taken over by P, Burns & Co.
Mr. Doble was a man of keen business Instincts and was interested iu the
Craubrook Electric Light company, tbe
McNab Lumber company, and other
busiuess enterprises iu this district. Socially he was a great favorite with those
wbo knew him and appreciated his good
qualities, and his death will be a sad loss
to many. He leaves a wife, three children, two brothers and three sisters. Arrangements have not been completed
for the removal of the remains but they
will probably be forwarded to Toronto
for interment.

Alex McDermot had a Toronto friend
visiting him last week. The aforesaid
friend is a Johnny Newcomer in Ibe wild
and wooly west, and in traveling he carried two dress suit cases, an ivory topped
cane and a leather hat box that con
tained a silk bat. If a man Is passing
through a country with harness of that
kind it is all right, but good judgment
should be displayed iu wearing it. But
"Mac's" friend lacked tbat keen discerning judgment tbat characterizes the
man familiar with this part of the west.
Wuen Sunday morning arrived the friend
proceeded to get out his glad rags. And
when he was through Solomon in all his
glory was not in it with this particular
fashion plate from Toronto. "Mac" ts
a pretty strong dresser himself, and
knows a good thing in the gents furnishing line when he sees it. But the
tout ensemble of the friend staggered
him. Patent leather shoes, light pants
properly creased, a Prince Albert coat
and that silk hat, "Mac" hemmed and
coughed and suggested that any old hat
would be more comfortable, but the
gentleman from the effete east was satisfied. They started down the street,
made the round trip and got back to the
hotel safely. "It was a relief," said
''Mac." "I looked for au egg or a
brick all the time, and the sight of that
top hat made me nervous. I was glad
to get back, and tbat man will never
know what he escaped."
H. N. Coates of St. Johns, N. B., has
been visiting bis old school male, Raines
Ryan, for the past two weekB. Mr.
Coates is a member of the hardware
firm of S. Haywood & Co. It was his
first visit to this part of British Columbia, and he was most favorably im
pressed with the country in general and
Craubrook in particular. He and Mr.
Ryan sat by tbe hour on the shady side
of the botel, and told stories of long ago
It waa no uncommon thing to see both
of tbem laughing heartily together over
some revived memory of tbe past. Tbey

Jim" regretted his friend's departure
very much indeed.
Sydney Coulton, formerly with Reid
& Co., hut now living at I'hoenlx, was
iu town last week on his way home from
an ex-ended trip through the east.
"Sid" looks well, and says Phoenix is
one of tbe best towns in British Columbia, and that they have one of tbe best
newspapers in the province. He had an
experience while passing through Illinois that he will not forget soon. His
train was held up by train robbers, aud
tbe express car robbed of several thousand dollar-j. One of tbe robbers was
killed and left behind in the fl'ght. The
gentlemen of the road did not molest

LEAD TRUST IS FORMED
New Coal Fields.
I). R. Young is back from a prospecting trip through the Okatiagan district,
from Vernon to Penlicton, made in the
interests of the Ashnola Smelter company. He wus successful in locating
several thousand acres of coal lands
within easy reach of trausportation ou
Okanagan lake. Tbe principal location
wtis made on Mission creek, about six
miles back from tbe lake, where he
staked over five thousand acres of cool
lands. Tbe other location was made on
Trout creek, two and a half miles from
(be lake, and consisted of 1280 acres
There is au eigb foot seam on the Trout
creek property, samples from which
have beeu assayed by A. L McKillop
with very satisfactory results. Mr. McKillop states that the coal is firstctass
for steam and domestic purposes.
The Ashnola smelter company will
commence development work ou their
new properties at an early date. Mr
Young is confident that they will be
shipping coal into Nelson by January 1,
Will Control Lead Manufacturing Interests of the States.
AND ALSO THE PIG LEAD MARKET
A Supplementary Company Is to
Take In Many of the Big
Lead Mines.
NOBODY    KNOWS    UENRRAL    RESULTS
? . Louis Mo., August to —The Lead
and Zinc News will say tomorrow:
"What will be the greatest lead combination in this country is now nearing
its cousummatlou. While its promoters
are more than ordinarily reticent, it is
definitely known that the scope of the
merger will include most of the larger
white lead plants east cf the Mississippi,
the principle pipe and sheet lead plants,
and a number of companies manufacturing products in wbich lead foi ms one of
the chief components Included lu tbe
merger will be tbe Union Lead & Oil
company, which was organized last year
by tbe Ryan-Whitney coterie of capta-
lists with a capital of $10,000,000, and
which controls the Bailey process of
manufacturing white lead. Overtures
made to induce tbe National Lead company to ijoin the merger are said to be
favorably looked upou by a portion of
the directorate.
Men Behind (he Merger.
"Behind the merger are the Ryan-
Whit uey and American Smelting and
Refining company'interests. Options
have been secured on a number of corroding plants of the country, notably the
Chadwick company of Hostou and the
Raymond company of Chicago. If the
merger is completed successfully it will
control tbe lead manufacturing interests
of the country and Indirectly, through
Its alliances, the pig lead market.
"The plans of tbe promoters favor a
corporation witb a capitalization of not
less than 150,000,000. The papers will
probably be filed in New Jersey during
the next 60 days, although definite au-
nounctinent of the status of tbe merger
is looked for before the expiration of
that time.
"The lead producing properties iu
southeastern Missouri, Colorado and the
Coeur d'Alene will not be included in
this merger, but will be the basis of a
secoud corporation with a capitalization
of not less thau $.15,000,000, to be consummated after the manufacturing
merger bas been effected."

The Gunm&ker
Of Moscow &
& & t»   By SYLVANUS COBB, Jr.
"Let me explain here, sire," interrupted tiie duke 113 liis puppet liesi-
lated, "lliis man mny nm know
properly nbout thnt mission. Living with me is a young girl, a ward
of mine, 11 gentle, timid lining, who
hus been somewhat a comfort lo me
iu my loneliness. In childhood she
was acquainted with this liuric Xe-
vel, anil now the fellow has presumed thereupon several times to insult
her of late with his disgusting familiarity. She dared not rcmon-
strale wiih him for fear of violence,
so she referred lhe matter to me.
The count has been anxious to win
her for a wife, so I thought him nnt
un improper person to send on the
delicate mission. Accordingly I
wrote a sort of promise in the form
of a voluntary assurance pledging
the signer not to make himself familiar with the lady nny more. And
at the same time he received the assurance lhat his presence was very
disagreeable to the person mentioned. This 1 supposed be would sign
nt once, and as tbe count aspired to
her hand I deemed it no more than
right that he should render her this
service. Now, sire, this gentleman
may continue."
Thus bidden Urzen resumed:
"The noble count was desirous,
sire, tbat I should accompany bim,
and 1 did so. Upon reaching the
man's shop we found him at work
upon a gunlock, 1 think. lie received tbe note, but refused to sign
it. The count urged Mm to sign in
mild, persuasive hmguage until the
fellow became insolent. Then he
used 6ome stronger terms, nnd I
think be made some threat of what
he would do if his insults to the lady
were repented, nnd thereupon the
gunmaker struck him a furious
blow in the face and knocked him
down. I cannot remember nil the
threatening language which the fellow used, but it was fearful."
"And how nbout the duel?" nsked
the emperor.
In answer to this Urzen went on
nnd related what lie hnd prepnred
on the subject, nnd it need only be
eh id that the report was about on a
par with what we have already
heard. He even went so far as to
swear that the count had tried re-
pealedly to compromise matters after the conflict had begun, lhat he
begged of Xevel to give up the battle, hut lhat the hitter, thirsting for
Ibe young nobleman's blood, kep'
Loth', 111111II1 at it.
It was nt this juncture and without referring to tho surgeon that
the emperor sent for Ruric, and,
having learned that a lieutenant of
the Khitagorod guard was present
at the duel, ho sent for him also.
Orsa arrived lirst and was present
when Ruric came.
And now liuric Nevel stood be-
lore his emperor. l'et*rr gazed upon
him for some moments, and then he
said:
"Sir, thy bearing is bold."
"Why should it not be, sire, when
I stand before one whom 1 honor
nnd respect und do not fear?" So
Epoke Huric calmly and with peculiar dignity.
"Not fear?" repeated the autocrat sternly.
"No, sire. Peter of liussia is not a
man to be feared by those who love
and honor him."
"Insolence!" uttered the duke.
The emperor looked up into his
face, and he added:
"Now, sire, you can see for yourself some of his traits of character."
"Aye," returned Peter, "I sec.
They are wonderful. I knew not
that among my artisans there were
men of such boldness."
The duke knew not how lo interpret this, and he moved back a
pace.
"Now, sir," resumed Peter, turning to the gunmaker, "how dared
you strike n Russian nobleman?"
" 1 did not, sire. Conrad Damonoff
came to my shop, and he brought
me a paper in which I was required
or ordered to relinquish all claims
to the hand of"—
"Sire," interposed the duke, "he
misstates"—
"Never mind," broke in the emperor, with nn authoritative wave of
the hand, "we will hear nothing
about the lady here. Why did you
6trike the count?"
"Beenuse, Biro, he descended from
his Btntion and struck tne. lie
threw away the shield which should
protect the nobi-eman and struck
mc without provocation."
"And then you knocked him
down ?"
"1 did, sire."
"And perhaps you would have
done the same to r'e."
"Sire," answered the youth quickly, "when Damonoff tried by threats
to make me sign his paper I told
him there was but ono man on
earth at whose order I would do
that thing. The man who has the
right to command shall never have
occasion to strike me."
There was something in this reply
and more in the tone and bearing of
hint who spoke it that made the
duke tremble. lie saw plainly that
the emperor's eyes sparkled with admiration  as  1 hev rested uuon the
gunmaker.
"But now about this duel," resumed tke emperor. "How dared
vou take advantage of the count in
the conflict?"
"Advantage, sire?" repeated the
youth in surprise.
"Aye. Did he not, Stephen Urzen ?"
"lie did, sire," replied the man
thus addressed.
"And which of the two do you call
the best swordsman ?" Peter asked.
"Why, sir, the count is or wns
vastly his superior."
"And what say you, sir lieutenant?"
Alaric trembled, for this was addressed to him. He knew that the
duke was anxious to crush his
friend, and be feared to draw the
wrath of that powerful nobleman
down upon his head. Hut a happy
1 bought came to his aid.
"Sire," he said, "1 would rather
you would judge of that for yourself."
"Me judge? And how am I to do
lhat?"
"Let Huric Novel's skill be tried
here before you. If I mistake not,
you have some good swordsmen near
your palace. Tbere is Demetrius, the
(I reek."
"What, my master at arms?"
"Yes, sire."
"Why, lie is the best 6wordsman
in my empire. 1 think our young
adventurer would fare badly in his
hands."
"Never mind, sire. You could
judge."
"Why," said Peter, wiih a smile,
"Demetrius handles tho count as I
would a mere child."
"Sire," spoke liuric modestly, but
yet frankly, "it were surely no disgrace to be overcome by your tutor."
"And will you take a turn with
him at the swords?"
"Yes, sire, if so it please you."
"By my soul," cried the emperor,
leaping up, "we'll have some diversion out of this trial. What ho,
there! Light up the chamber. Let
every lamp be lighted, for we want
sight now. Send Demetrius here
and tell him to bring hisroundedged
swords I"
Both the duke and Urzen stood
aghast at this new turn, but they
dared not interfere, for they saw
that their imperial master was all
excitement now to see a trial of skill
at that science which, above all others, he tried to make his officers
learn. But then they had one hope
—Demetrius might overcome the
gunmaker so easily that Peter
should not see his real power.
Demetrius soon came, and under
his arm he carried the swords. They
were of the common size, but with
round edges and points on purpose
for play. The master at arms was a
powerfully built man and possessed
u splendid form. lie was a Greek
by birth and was now retained by
the emperor as a teacher of the
sword exercise.
"Demetrius," said Peter, "1 have
sent for you to entertain us with a
show of your skill. Here is a man
about whose power there is some
dispute. .Mind you, it is all in kindness, liuric Nevel, take your weapon."
The youth stepped forward and
extended his left hand for the
sword, and the right hand he extended for the other to grasp. It
was taken warmly, for the Greek
saw in an instant that he bad a noble man to deal with. And those
two men ware not much unlike in
form. Demetrius was an atom the
taller, but Ruric showed the more
muscle.
The night bad come on, but the
great lamps were all lighted, and the
room was as bright as day.
"Sir," said liuric, addressing the
Greek, "this is none of my seeking,
though I confess that for a long
while I have longed to cross a playful sword with you.   I play well."
"I like you," the Greek returned
bluntly and kindly, "and if you beat
me I will not like you less. I can afford to be beat once, seeing that
thus far I have never been since first
I offered to fence."
"Come, come," cried Peter, who
was impatient for the entertainment, "let's see the opening. Now,
stand aside, gentlemen."
Like twins stood those swordsmen as their weapons crossed with a
clear, sharp clang. The Greek led
off carefully, and liuric as carefully
warded every stroke. Then the former assumed a guard, and Huric led
off in turn. Ere long the swords
clashed with sharper ring, and soon
sparks of fire flow out from tho
clanging steel. Louder and louder
grew tlie clang, and quicker and
quicker grew the strokes. The
thrusts were made with skill and
force, but as yet neither had been
touched.
The emperor was in ecstasy. He
clapped his hands and shouted bravo
with all his might.
By and by Ruric's eye grew more
intense in its sparkling fire. His opponent saw it, but he could not tell
what it meant. The youth was about
to risk tbe most daring feat of all he
knew.   Steadily burned his eye, and
his lips were set like steel. At length
he saw that the Greek was playing
for a tTirust, and he lowered his
point. Demetrius saw tho chance,
and, drawing bis arm quickly back,
he made the thrust with all his power. He'was sure now he had won,
for there was no earthly way in
which his point could be struck either down or up. But see! With a
gliding motion, a motion almost imperceptible, Ruric raises his sword,
and th" oilier slides along upon its
side, nnd Ihe other point, instead of
touching his breast, is caught in the
cross guard of his haft. Then, quick
as lightning and with all his might,
Ruric bends his elbow downward
with the whole weight of his massive shoulder and throws his wrist
upward. On that instant tho Greek
sees and feels what meant tbat
strange (ire of the eye. He feels his
point caught, but beforo he can close
his grasp more (irmly the haft is
wrenched from his hand. It strikes
the vaulted ceiling with a dull clang
and, descending, is caught fairly on
the hilt by liuric Nevel.
l'or a moment all is still as death
in that chamber, liuric is the first
to break the silence. He advances
to the Greek, and as he bands back
both the swords he says:
"Demetrius, remember your
promise. I know you are a brave
: man, for I can see it in your forgiving glance. You will not like me the
! less fortius."
"By heaven, no!" the noble Greek
cries, dropping both tbe swords and
I extending  both  hands,  which  the
gunmaker grasped.   "I honor you, I
love you."
Peter Alexiowitz, the impetuous
emperor, then in the zeal and fire of
youth, leaped from his standing
place and caught Ruric by the hand.
"By St. Michael," he cried earnestly and loudly, "you stand clear
of all blame, for full well do 1 know
that had you so desired you could
have slain Conrad Damonoff at your
first thrust."
"Sire," returned the youth, now
speaking tremulously, "twice did I
disarm the count and yet spare him.
And when in my rage I broke bis
weapon in twain to bring him to his
senses he seized a second sword."
"Sir duke, spoke the emperor,
turning toward Olga, who stood
trembling with rage and mortification, "you see you must have labored
under a mistake. You can retire
now.   Not a word, sir!"
With a quivering lip and a trembling step the duke left the apartment, and after him went Stephen
Urzen.
""Now, Jturic jNcvei, 11 you leave
Moscow without my consent you do
so at your peril. I would not lose
sight of you.   You are at liberty."
In an hour more liuric was upon
his mother's bosom. He told ber all
tbat had happened, all but tbe last
words of the emperor. He did not
tell her of those, for he knew not
whether they boded him good or
evil.
CHAPTER Till.
THE   MASK   FALLS   FROM   THE   VILLAIN'S
FACK.
It was about two weeks after the
events last recorded that Rosalind
Yaklai sat in her own apartment
with Zenobie for her companion. It
was in the afternoon, and a severe
storm was raging without.
"Now, Zenobie," spoke the beautiful maiden, "we have a moment
alone, the first since morning. And
now tell me about that black monk.
What did he say his name was?"
"Vladimir."
"Ah, yes. I have heard his name,
and if I mistake not he is a sort of
mysterious being."
"He is, my mistress, and I am just
as confident that I have seen him beforo as I am that I have seen you before."
"How?  Seen him before?"
"Yes."
"But where?"
"Ah," returned the young girl,
with a dubious shake of the head,
"there is the mystery. For the life
of me I cannot tell. He knew me—
he knows everybody—and yet be has
not been long in the city if one
might judge from his conversation."
"But what did he stop you for?
Where was it?" asked liosalind eagerly.
"It was in the church ho stopped
me—in our Church of St. Stephen.
He was nt the nltar, nnd he beckoned to me ns I rose to come out. I
went to him, and he asked about
you."
"About me?"
"Yes, and about Rurie Nevel."
"And what about us?" the maiden asked, blushing.
"He asked me if I thought you
loved tho young gunmaker. He was
so kind and be appeared so aniious
to know and then he seemed to take
such an interest in Rurie that I
could not refuse to answer him."
"But what did you tell him?"
"I told him you did love Rurie. I
told him how you had been children
together and how you would now
give your hand to him sooner than
to tho proudest noble in the land.
He asked me some things about the
duke, but I would not tell him.
When I must tell of evil if I tell the
truth, I will not speak if I can properly avoid it."
"You were right, Zenobie. You
were very right about this last part,
but you should not have told all you
knew concerning Ruric and me."
"I hope I did nothing wrong. Oh,
I should ho proud to acknowledge
my love for such a man."
"Aye, and so I am, my little
6prite. I lovo Ruric with my whole
soul and would be proud to give him
my hand this day, but that is no reason why you should tell of it."
"Surely, my mistress. I meant no
harm," the young girl cried eagerly.
"Hush, Zenobie. I do not blame
you; only I would have you careful."
"And I would be careful. But, oh,
you could not have resisted him. He
drew it from me almost ere I knew
it. He put his questions in such a
strange manner that I could not
speak without telling what he wanted to know. He did not say, TJoes
she love Ruric Nevel ?' but he took it
for granted that such was the case,
and then ere I was aware of it he
had made me say so. But he surely
does not mean you harm, nor does
he mean harm to Ruric. He is a
good man, I know."
"I wish I could see him," returned
Rosalind half to herself.
"You cannot mistake him if you
ever do see him, my mistress. He is
a strange looking man, and, then,
he dresses differently from most of
our church officers. He dresses all
in black—today it was in black velvet. But his shape is his most striking characteristic. He is the fattest man in Moscow. His belly
shakes when he laughs, and his chin
seems to sink clear out of sight. Ho
would be a funny man and would
make me laugh if he did not puzzle
me so."
"And did he ask you about anything else?"
"xro; only he nsked mo if I knew
how the duke 6tood with the emperor, nnd I told him I thought he
stood very well. Then ho snid he
had heard that they had had some
dispute concerning the duel between
Count Damonoff nnd Ruric. But
I told him I guessed thnt had resulted in no estrangement, for tbe duke
was as much at court as ever. And
after that ho told me about the duel,
ns he was there and saw nearly the
whole of the affair."
And Zenobie went on and (old all
that the monk related nbout Ruric's
bravery, and Rosalind listened now
attentively and eagerly. It was a
theme that pleased her. The attendant saw how gratefully the account came upou the enrs of her
mistress, ana she closed I lie recital
with some opinion of her own
wherein Ruric Nevel was held up as
a pattern after which all men who
wished to win the love of woman
Bhould be made.
But before any answer could be
made by liosalind the door of the
apartment wns opened, and the duke
entered. He smiled very kindly as
he bowed to his ward, aud then,
with a wave nf his hand, he motioned for Zenobie to withdraw, and after the attendant was gone he took a
seat close by his fair charge. The
maiden looked up into his face, and,
though there was no serious look
there as yet, still sbe could plainly
see that he had something of more
than usual importance on his mind.
She shuddered as she gazed upon
him, for she could not help it.
There was something in the look of
the man—a sort of hidden intent,
which came out in his tone and
glance; a deep meaning, something
which he had never spoken, but
whieh was yet manifest—that moved her thus. Wbat it was she could
not tell. It was the prompting of
that instinct of the human soul
which may repel an object while
yet the working mind detects no
harm.
But she was not to remain in the
dark much longer. The evil one
was loose, and bis bonds of restraint
were cast off. He had marked his
prey, and the meshes were gathering ahout it. "Rosalind," the duke
said in a tone which he meant
should have been easy and frank,
but which nevertheless was marked
strongly with effort, "there is some
talk among the surgeons now that
Conrad Damonoff may recover."
"Oh, I am glad of that I" the fair
girl uttered earnestly.
"Yes, I suppose so," resumed Olga, eying her sharply. "But you
havo no particular care for him, I
presume?"
"For—for the count?"
"Aye; it was of him I was spoak-
1 ing-"
"No, sir. I care only for bim ns I
I care for all who need to become bet-
! ter ere they die."
"Aba, yes!" said the duke, biting
his lip, for in his own mind he bud
j the frankness to acknowledge that
he was about as needy of virtue as
was the count. "But," he resumed,
with a faint smile, "you never loved
the man?"
"No, 6ir," the maiden answered,
gazing up into her guardian's face,
with an inquisitive look.
"So I thought, so I thought." As
Olga thus spoke he smiled again and
moved his chair nearer to Rosalind.
"1 am well aware," he resumed,
"that your affjetions have not as
yet been set upon any one who is
capable of making a proper companion for you through all tho ups
and downs of life."
Rosalind's eyes drooped beneath
the steady gaze of the speaker, and
her frame trembled. But ere she
could mako any reply the duke went
on:.

Co-operative llovt-mcnti Dflnonitrated
- Iiupui'tai.ca uf (iooii Hanngement.
Everyone ia familiar with the
history of the wonderful development
of the export bacon trade in Canada
during tlie past ten or twelve years,
in 18i>0 our export of bacon, lard,
hums, pork, &.c, amounted to less
than d.UOO.OOO lbs.- in l'JOO it had
risen to about i;JG,U0O,000 lbs. The
Province of Ontario has been the
chief exporter, but tho time has
come when we may expect to see a
change in this respect. .Much of
Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia,
and Prince Edward Island i.s admirably adapted to dairying, a branch
of farming which is rapidly extending from Montreal eastward, as well
as in Ontario. The dairy districts
produce the class of hog, from which
the finest Will shire bacon is made,
iind in these districts hogs are put
on the market at as low a cost per
pound as iu any section of Canada.
General dairying and hog growing
.should go together, as neither will
reach its highest paying condition
without the other. The Eastern and
Northern sections of Ontario produce a better class of hog than the
corn belt of Western Ontario, or in
other words, the section of Ontario
which more nearly resembles Quebec*.
uud tho Maritime Provinces in climate and grain products, produces the
best class of bacon. In some respects these provinces are better
suited than Ontario for the development of this industry. Land is generally cheaper, pasturage surer, and
roots and other crops easily raised.
Two conditions are necessary in order to develop this industry in Quebec and tlie Eastern Provinces, es-
peciolly the latter,—an abundance of
coarse grains, which by attention to
agriculture can be profitably produced, nnd the establishment of packing
companies, (or the extension of
those already established), which
will fully meet the requirements of
the best markets, both at home and
abroad.
During the past year or two, I
have had frequent requests from
other provinces for informal ion regarding tiie establishment of co-operative packing factories, such us
ha*>e recently been put up at several
points in Ontario. The practical results of these co-operative movements has been demonstrated by the
Danish farmers, who are becoming
more and more interested in improving the quality and shape of the pig,
as through this medium alone they
have succeeded in placing their bacon
and pork in a foremost position,
both for quality and shapliness of
side, on the London market, while
the fact of these co-operative factories being established all over Denmark, shows to what a success they
have been brought.
There are several pointB however
that should always be observed, in
connection with tlie establishment of
tiiese pork packing industries on the
co-operative plan. In the first place,
they should be installed as nearly as
■ possible along the Danish lines, with
' only farmers as stockholders, and
each one allowed to hold only a, limited amount of stock. No speculators should be permitted to invest in
the company. In tho next place, it
is absolutely necessary that the individual subscriber shall have faith
in his own company. The practice of
farmers subscribing stock in th'esp
movements and then selling their
hogs to the highest bidder, often to
firms competing against their own
company, is all wrong, and ent iroly
different from the "modus operandi"
iu Denmark. The success of Canadian co-operative factories is absolutely regulated and controlled by
the loyalty of the farmer, who has,
as yet, scarcely realized tho importance of opera t in % along truly cooperative lines. Stiil another necessary feature is that all proxies
should be concentrated in tho hands
of a co'iucil of not more than seven,
preferably five of the very best men
among them, practical business men,
who a: e not likely to be led away by
fads, cr driven from wise busiuess
principles by factious opposition.
It is of the lirst importance that
behind the business management of
the concern there shall he a
thoroughly practical and experienced
curer, \.*ho will send forward only
uniform goods of the highest quality,
that will when tested on the Hritisli
market, grade wit Ji the best Irish
and Danish bacon. To turn out this
class of goods particular at ten. Ion
must \w given to the sort of pig
grown, ami the method of feeding the
same. To produce tho highest grade
of Wiltshire sides, the packers require a long, deep, smooth pig, possessing a light head and shoulder,
and ev*m back, not too broad, but
well covered with linn flesh, not fat;
at the came time he must not be a
razor Lack. The sides from ham to
back of shoulder must be long and
deep, tile Underline straight and free
from fiabblness; the ham smooth and
tapering, with the greatest amount
tti llesll oil the outside. Tin- pig
should be healthy, vigorous ami a
good feeder, weighing when ready for
markot from 17.". to 200 lbs. It is
generally conceded that Yorkshires
produce the greatest proportion of
pigs of this type, with the Tam-
Wortl»S next. The thick, fat, American or lard breeds arc not wanted by
pucki-rs. Pigs should be fed good
wholesome and fan '"Hy select,-1
food,—skimmed milk, potatoes, roois,
green foot!, liar ley, peas &.V., in a
properly balanced ration, without
any undue stuffing, If the farmers
do not intend to observe these conditions, they had better leave the
business entirely alone, as otherwise
they are only retarding the efforts of
other Canadians who are striving to
place our bacon on the market ln
the highest possible condition in
competition with the Irish and Danish products. A good deal of money
has been lost during the past year on
hogs, the English market not, justifying prices paid in Canada. For instances, we have had pigs for a whole
year ranging in price from SO.oO to
$7.50. Such a condition of affairs
was never before known iu the trade.
Tlie farmers have, however, received
the benefit, and the packing companies have suffered, largely because
thoy have been climbing over one another to get pigs Irrespective of
cost, doing no culling, and taking undesirable breeds, just as quickly as
they would the best. This sort of
thing will right itself iu course of
time,  but    not    before    the packing
houses lose a lot of money.
A co-operative packing factory
should not be started until a capital
of at least $250,000 has been subscribed, which will be sufficient to
ensure a killing capacity of two to
threo thousand per week. Small
plants are objectionable because the
refrigerating system costs very little
less, and the management and expenses are tho stime, minimum production always being the most expensive. Such a factory cannot be
put up for less than S100.000 to
■$125,000. Farmers holding stock in
s ich a company should dslivcr their
hogs at the factory, take an advance
of sixty or eighty per cent., huve
them slaughtered, cured, branded
with the name of the factory, sent
forward and realized on through the
medium of a first class English
agency.
Eastern Canada has for some time
shown a good deal of interest in the
subject of co-operative packing
houses, but so far as I am aware,
Manitoba, the Northwest Territories
and British Columbia have not given
it much consideration. Possibly the
Information above given may prove
of value to Lhe people of the West as
Well as the East. Any community
Interested In tho co-operative system
out lined above should send a repre-
sci.tal ive committee to visit and
can fully inspect tho operations of a
working factory, such as the Farmers' Co-operat Ive Packing Co., Lim-
iie.l. of Brantford, Out. They will

and willing to give the fullest Information in regard to the co-operative movement in all its phases.—F.

(■reeled the California I'loueen.
Far out at sen gleaming sheets of
dazzling gold arreEted the gaze of the
early explorers of California. Blazing
along the Pacific coast, embroidering
the green foothills of tbe snow capped
Sierra Madres, transforming acres and
acres of treeless plains into royal cloth
of gold, millions of flowers of silky texture and color of gold fascinated the
Spanish discoverers. An eminent botanist, Esebscholtz, at once classified
the plant, and his followers conferred
his name upon this the ouly native
American pa paver.
Dreamlike in beauty, fascinating from
sheer loveliness, spreading in soft undulations over the land, the California
poppy bloomed above the richest views
nud arteries of gold the world haa ever
known, all unsuspected. A Circe, with
powers to please, dazzle and charm by
Its enchantments, while it allures, lulls
nud mystifies, this flower of sleep seemed to draw by some occult process from
the earth the elixir of gold, unfolding
Its blooms of gold as beacons proclaiming, "We are blooming above rich mines
of gold."
There Is ever a mystery about the
poppy. It is a weird flower. It is almost sentient, with a life unknown to
human kind. "While glory guards with
solemn tread the bivouac of the dead"
stealthily a sea of gore creeps over the
old battlefields. Blood red. the popples
in waves and billows hold high carnival above the soil that covers the slain.
Lord Macaulay snys of the battlefield
of Necrwinden: "The summer after the
battle the soil, fertilized by 20,000 deud,
broke forth into millions of blood red
poppies. The traveler from St. Trend
to Tirlemont who saw that vast field
of rich scarlet stretching from Lar-^en
to Neorwlnden could hardly help fancying thut the figurative descrlpt'on of
tho Hebrew prophet was literally accomplished; that "tbe earth wn-s disclosing her blood and refusing to cover
ber slain." Bayard Taylor in "The
Lands of the Saracen" Rays he contemplated witb feelings he could not describe "the old battlefields of Syria,
densely covered with blood red poppies, blooming tn bnrbnrlc splendor,
gloating on the gore of soldiers plain."
However interesting ihe poppy may
be to men of science and to lovers of
the beautiful, it Is yet more po to th*
people of California.    This  beautiful,
j weird, gold colored flower of gossamer
I texture   belongs   to   California   alone.
; Nowhere else in the world has tt ever
made its habitat   There it Is naturally
: eo profuse that it Is related as a fact
| that, coming on a turn full face upon
! a blooming field of yellow poppies, dazzling in tho sunshine, horses have beeu
■ put to flight as from flames of fire.
HlBlit Hr-ftd of Hum
Prof. A. 0. Gilbert, manager of the
poultry department uf the Central
Experimental Form, recently addressed the Agricultural Committee
on tho work of his department. He
urged the necessity to farmers of
procuring the breeds of thickens
which will produce good winter layers and rapid flesh formers. These
were the Burred Plymouth Koek, the
White Wyandotte ami Buff Orpingtons, lie also emphasized the necessity of taking care of the thickens
pi operly, particularly during the
first five weeks of their-.existence, and
until they reach the salable age of
three or three und a half months. If
the market required it, at the age of

Foods nnd   App-Mtle.
In some good advice given lu print by
n physician the theory beld hy faddists
In special foods, warranted to perform
marvels of health and restoration, is
exploded. "Don't," says this writer,
"imagine that you can grow strong on
foods that you dislike. Better fried
ham and chocolate cake with a good
appetite than a health cereal with milk
and disgust"
One would hesitate, perhaps, to follow strictly the fried ham and ehoco
late cake dictum lo the letter, but It Is
undoubtedly true that at the umment
many persons nlmost starve themselves
because tbey bave no appetite for the
various so cnlled health foods, which
alone they fancy they can eat. Above
nnd beyond the choice of food is moderation In partakiug of It and relish for
what Is eaten.

OUR FROG FARMERS.
Th* Induilry la A *•.■.. miha* I.»rg« rr*por-
iiou» Near ''-.'it-i*'>■■,•«.
Frog farming us an industry is assuming large proportions in many
parts of Canada. Not only are large
shipments of frogs' legs made from
this country to the United States,
but there is a growing demand for
the luxury in many of the large
centres   of  the  Dominion.
Soma of the most, successful frog
farms are on the Otonabee River, in
the County of I'oterborA. Last year
they are said to have produced 5,-
000 pounds of dressed frogs' legs
and 7,000 living frogs for scientific
purposes and for stocking other waters.
The Deputy Commissioner of Fisheries reports that In the past year
a number of applications were nmde
to the Government for leases of
lands suitable for this industry. No
licenses were, however, granted, us
it was found th.it the territory concerned was already being farmed by
a number of people.
It is safe to assume that in the
very hear future much land noW idle
will be storked with frogs. All that
is necessary for this purpose is to
place a few paired breeders in the
water. Natural food Is almost always present in sufficient amount for
successful growth.
The species considered there to be
most profitable, on account of its
size is the Eastorn bullfrog, Kami
cutesbiana, wbicb reaches a length i>f
mora thun eight inches. It Logins to
breed hL the aid of three years, is
very productive, uud reaches a market able size iu four or five years.
Only the hind legs are marketed,
and they average half a pound a
pair in weight. 'Ihey are worth 50
cents a pound, at times, to the producer ar.ii American dealers take us
many as Canada cun supply.

without any beneficial results, and I

One of my neighbors strongly advised me to try Dr. Williams' i'ink

consented to do so. After 1 had
taken the second box I began to note
a great improvement in my condition, and by the time I had used five
boxes 1 was fully restored to my
former good health, much to the surprise of my neighbors and relations.
I do not suffer the least now irom

lt is a well known characteristic of
our I'reach Canadian people that
they are fearless and enthusiastic in
their praise ol anything or anybody
that has befriended them.
No one is more capable of more
gracefully expressing gratitude than
the average French gentleman.
A recent case illustrates this point.
Mons. Jean Boivue has for many
years been afflicted with a terrible
malady of the kidneys.
lie suffered a very great deal of
pain, aud his disease forced him to
rise every hour during the night.
lie was advised to use Dodd's Kidney Pills, and after taking a short
t rent ment, found himself completely
cured.
liis gratitude knew no bounds,and
ever since he has recommended to all
his friends the wonderful remedy
which cured him so promptly and
completely.
When he finds anyone who has no
confidence in them, his first act is to
give them some pills, and explain to
them how to use them, and he bus
found this method very soon convinces the most skeptical of thetruth
of the stutement ho makes that
Doiid's Kidney Pills are the greatest
medicine in tho world.
Mons. Boivur says :
"Dodd's  Kidney  Pills are good.
"I know this because while at one
time 1 suffered very severely from
Kidney Disease, now 1 am well.
"Not long ago I. used to have to
get up several times during the
night, now 1 can sleep well all night
without rising.
"You can believe me, 1 am glad to
have regained my health, nnd I say
thanks a thousand t inies to Dodd'a

THAT MONTREAL WHALE.
A BumoroQi Prei-eotutloo of   Hit IVhala-
■hlp'-i   Ueoiorabl*   Trip  Vp  th* St.
I.awrcnca—Is It a Flah Story?
The whale which strayed up to
Montreal and stranded itself has
caused one of the email sensations of
tha past week. The Montreal papers have not treated his whale-
ship's memorable trip up the St.
Lawrence with the respect and attention due such a distin-guiahed visitor. In fact the event has been
treated with such levity and indifference in Montreal that people in this
city, says the Toronto World, are
wondering whether there was a
whale there or not. The impression
got abroad that someone ffoing home
from ono of the clubs had "got em,"
mid that bis vision was distorted by
the rushing waters of the St. Lawrence, so that instead of serpents
and crawling things he saw a whale.
Another improbability, in the view
of land lubbers, was that the whale
should strand itself on a sandbar or
rock. It has always been understood that a well brought up whale
could see where it was goiag, and
the stories we have read about
whales "swatting" boats and capsizing would-be whale captors into
the sea, confirmed that impression.
Then again, the reports that a number of citizens had shot into the
forty-foot monster several scores of
bullets without appreciable damage
to its anatomy, was another puzzler, and we wondered why a crew
of river men was not organized and
equipped with harpoons and other
whale-killing devices in order that
tbe valuable bones and oil contained
in the carcass might be secured in
the interests of commerce! But the
newspapers kept working off insinuating jokes about the whale until the
truth of the story wns completely
discounted. On Saturday, however,
news came to hand to tho effect that
the whale had got out of dry dock,
bo to speak, and taken a trial spin
or two, and that a chap who went
witb an old gun to pour some more
lead into it had been tricked by his
weapon and received a wound more
or less serious.
A heated discussion wns brought
on in Toronto when one of a group
of men characterized the whole thing
aa a flshstory. He was at once met
with tho assertion that a whale was
not a fish, and forthwith ensued an
argument as noisy as one would hear
in a    political   caucus. Webster's
Unabridged was sought, and the
first "whale" found there was the
verb, meaning "to lash with stripes;
to whale, to thrash, to drub." This
Was not satisfactory, but the next
"whale," defined as a noun, wns better, and the man who called the
Mammal a fish went a wny and hid
himself. Noah Webster snid a whale
was: "Any aquatic Mnmnml of the
order cetacca, especially any one of
the large species, some of which become nearly one hundred feet long."
Webster's verdict was accepted, but
the explanatory note immediately
following led to further speculation.
There are two groups of whales,
namely tbe Odontecete whale, which
has teeth,as the cachalot or spurm
whale; and the Mysticete whale,
which is without teeth, but has
plates of baleen or whalebone, hanging from the upper jaw. Tho most
important species of whalebone
whale are the bowhead, or Green-
Antarctic whale, tbe grey whale, the
humpback, the finback and the rorqual. What we want to know is
whether the Montreal whalo is ft
sperm whale or a bono whalo, and
whether, if a bone whale, it is a rorqual, a finback or a humpback. When
this information is given the people
may be induced to believe tbere is
or has been a whale in the harbor.

In November, 1786, Hon. William
Smith was appointed Chief Justice
of Canada, a position which he retained until his death on November
3, 1793. The office was in the na*

loyalty to Great -Britain during the
American war of the revolution- Born
in New York, he was the author,
when the controversy aroused by the
action of Parliament in passing the
stamp act broke out, of a proposal
partaking somewhat of the nature of
a confederation of the colonies, in
order to meet the problem of the
taxing of the North American dependencies — a council consisting of
representatives appointed by the several State Assemblies, to whom,
meeting at New York, all royal re-
auisitions for assistance should be
made* This body was to decide upon
the quotas to be supplied by the
various States. Possibly tbe riders
attached, that the King's approval
should be necessary in the case of
the appointment of each member, and
that the tenure of office sliould be
during lifo and good conduct, accounted for the scant courtesy which
the proposition received at tho huudg
of the colonists.

Bishop McEvny, the esteemed head
of the Roman Catholic Diocese owning London, Ont., as cathedral city,
is not only a very able man, but
gifted with a fine sense of humor ;
so we rather fancy he will enjoy this
true story: Ono oi the Separate
schools in London is St. Peter's
Another school in London east is
known as the Holy Angels. The other day boys from these two geographically separated schools met, and,
as sometimes happens among the
best regulated schools and families,
a bit of a scrimmage—nothing very
Serious, however — occurred whereupon a passerby heard one small
boy shouting to another lustily :
"Come quick! Come quick! The
St. Peter's kids are thrashing the
Holy Angels!" —London Advertiser!
A Cms* lu Paint.
At Upper Canada College, Toronto, recently, one of the teachers, in
talking to a class, asked the boys to
give examples of proper nouns that
could have no plural. A small boy
raised his hand promptly, and waa
asked to make answer. "Hell, sir,"
said the boy, mentioning a place
tbat certainly is singular enough.
