BY ANNA KATHERINE GREEN
AUTHOR OF
••THE LEAVENWORTH CASE.'*
-■i-.-.!i -i3_s_ cori.a.nc-u another room
as interesting as the one I have already mentioned. It went by the
name of the library ond its walls
were heavily lined with books; but
tha family never fiat thoro, nor was
I ever fortunate enough to see it
with its doors unclosed except 011
the occasion of tho grand reception
Mistress Callista gave in my honor.
I havo a fancy for big rooms and
more than onco urged my hostess to
toll mo why this ono stood neglected.
But tho lady was not communicative
on this topic and it was from another member of the household I learned that Its precincts hnd been forever
clouded by the unexpected death
within them of ono of her father's
frionds, a noted army officer.
"Why this Bhould have occasioned
a. permanent disuse of the spot I
could not understand, and ns every
ono who conversed on this topic invariably gave the impression of saying less than tho subject demanded,
my curiosity soon became too much
for me and I attacked Miss Callista
once again in regard to It. -he
gave mo a quick smile, for she was
always amiable, but shook her head
and introduced another topic. But
one night when the wind waa howl
ling in the chimneys and the sense
of loneliness was even greater than
usual in the great house, we drew together on the rug in front of my
bedroom fire, and, as the embers
burned down to ashes before us, Miss
Callista became moro communicative.
"Her heart was hoavy, she told
me; had been heavy for years. Per-
haps some ray of comfort would
reach her if she took a friend into
her confidence. God knew that
she needed one especially on
nights like this, when the
wind woke echoes all over the house
and it was hard to tell which most
to fear, the sounds which came from
no one knew where, or the silence
which settled after.
"She trembled as she said this,
and instinctively drew nearer my sido
so that our heads almost touched
over the flickering flame from whose
heat and light wo sought courage.
She seemed to feel grateful for this
contact, and the next minute, flinging all her scruples to the wind, she
began a relation of events which
more or less answered my late unwelcome queries.
"The death in the library, about
which her most perplexing memory
hung, took place when she was a
child and her father held that high
governmental position which has reflected so much credit upon the family. Her father and the man who
thus perished had been intimate
friends. They had fought together in
the War of 1812 and received the
same distinguishing marks of presidential approval afterward. They
were both members of an important
commission which brought them into
diplomatic relations with England.
It was while serving on this commission that the sudden break occurred which ended all intimate relations between them, and created a
change in her father that was equally remarked at homo and abroad.
What occasioned this break no one
knew. Whether his great ambition
had received some check through the
Jealousy of this so-called friend—a
supposition which did not seem possible, aa ho row rapidly after this—
or on account of other causes darkly hinted at by his contemporaries,
but nover breaking into open gossip,
he was never tho same man afterwards. His children, who used to
rush with effusion to greet him, now
shrank into corners at his step, or
slid behind half open doors, whence
they poored with fearful interest at
his tall figure, pacing In moody silence the halls of his ancestral homo,
or sitting with frowning brows over
the embers dying away on the groat
hearthstone of his famous library.
"Their mother, who was an invalid, did not share these terrors.
The father was ever tender of her,
and the only smile they ever saw
on his faco camo with his entrance
into her darkened room.
"Such were Callista Moore's first
memories. "Those which followed
were moro definite and much moro
startling. President Jackson, who
had a high opinion of her father's
ability, advanced him rapidly. Finally a position was given him which
raised him into national prominence.
As this had been the goal of his ambition for years, he was much gratified by this appointment, and though
his smiles, came no moro frequently
his frowns lightened, and from being
positively threatening, became simply
morose.
"Why this moroseness should have
sharpened into menace after an unexpected visit from his onco doar,
but long estranged companion-in-
nrm», his daughter, oven after long
years of constant brooding upon this
subject, dares not decide. If she
could she might be happier.
"The general was a kindly man,
sharp ol face and of a tall thin lig-
ure, but with an eye to draw children and make them happy with a
look. But his effect on the father
was different. From the moment the
two met in the great hall below, the
temper of tho host betrayed how
little he welcomed this guest. Ho
did not fail in courtesy—the Moorcs
are always gantlomen—but it was a
hard courtesy, which cut while it
flattered. The two children, shrinking from its edge without knowing
what it was that hurt thom, slunk
to covert, and from behind tho two
pillars which mark the entrance to
the library, watched the two men as
thoy walked up and down the halls
discussing the merits of this and that
detail of the freshly furndshed mansion. These two innocent, but eager
spica, whom fear ralhor than curiosity held in hiding, oven caught
some of ths sentences which passed
between tho so-called friends; and
though theso necessarily conveyed
but little meaning to their childish
minds, the words forming them wero
nevor forgot (on, as witness theso
phrases confided to me by Mistress
Callista twenty-five years afterwards.
" 'You havo much that most men
lack,' remarked the general, as th.y
paused to admire some little specimen  of Italian art which had been
ittieiy recciveu irom tienoa. -you
have money—too much1 money,
Mooro, by an amount I might easily
name—a home which some might call
palatial, a lovely, if not altogether
healthy wife, two fine children, and
all tho honor which a man in n
conunonwealth like this should usk
for.   Drop politics.
" 'Politics are my life,' was tho
cold response. 'To bid drop them is
to bid me commit suicide.' Then, as
an afterthought to which a moment
of intervening silence added emphasis, 'And f^r you to drive me from
thom would bo an act little short of
murder.'
"'Justice dealt upon a traitor is
not murder,' was tho stern and unyielding reply. 'By one black deed
of treacherous barter and sale, uf
which nono of your countrymen is
cognizant but myself, you havo forfeited the confidence of this government. Were I, who so unhappily surprised your secret, to allow you to
continue in your present place of
trust, I  myself would  be a  traitor
to the republic lor which I have
fought and for which I am ready to
die. That is why I ask you to resign befors—'
"The two children did not catch
the threat latent in that last word,
but they realized the force of it from
their father's look and were surprised when he quietly said:
" '.You declare yourself to be Iho
only man on the commission who is
acquainted with the facts you ure
pleased to style traitorous?'
"The general's lips curled. 'Have
I not said?' he asked.
"Something in this stern honesty
seemed to affect the father. His
face turned away and it waa Ihe
other's voice which was next heard.
A change had taken place in it and
it sounded almost mellow as it gave
form to these words:
" 'Alphcus, we have been friends.
Vou shall have two weeks in which
to think over my demand and decide. If at the end of that time you
have not returned to domestic life
you may expect another visit from
me which can not fail of consequences. You know my temper when
roused. Do not force mo into a position which will cause us both endless regret.'
"Perhaps the father answered; perhaps he did not. The children heard
nothing further, but they witnessed
the gloom with which he rode away
to the Whito Houso the next day.
Remembering the general's threat,
they imagined in their childish
hearts that their father had gone
to give up his post and newly acquired honors. But ho returned at.
night without having done so, end
from that day on carried his head
higher and showed himself more and
moro the master, both at home and
abroad.
"But he was restless, very restless,
and possibly to allay a great nier-
tal uneasiness, he began having somo
changes mado in the house; changes
which occupied much of his time and
with which he nover seemed satisli.il.
Men working one day woro dismissed
the next and others called in until
this work and everything else was
interrupted by the return of his lute
unwelcome guest, who kept his appointment to a day.
"At this point in her narrative
Mistress Callista's voice fell and the
flame which had thrown a partial
light on her countenance died down
until I could but faintly discern the
secretly inquiring look wilh which
sho watched me as she went on to
say:
"'Reuben and I,'—Reuben was her
brother,—'were posted in the dark
corner under the stairs when my
father met the general at the door.
Wo had expected to hear high words,
or some explosion of bitter feeling
between them, and hardly knew
whether to be glad er sorry when
our father welcomed his guest with
the same elaborate bow we once saw
him make to the president in tho
grounds of tho White House. Nor
could we understand what followed.
Wo wore summoned in to supper. Our
mother was there—a great event in
those days—and toasts were drunk
and our father proposed one to tho
general's health. This Reuben
thought was an open signal of
pcaco, and turned upon mo his great
round eyes in surprise; but I, who
was old enough to notice that this
toast was not responded to and that
tho general did not even touch his
lips to ths glass he had lifted in
compliment to our mother, who had
lifted hers, felt that there was something terrifying rather than reassuring in this attempt at good fellowship. Though u ii ii I -1.- to reason ovor
it at the timo, I have often done so
since, and my father's attitude and
look as he faced thin strange guest
has dwelt so persistently in my memory that scarcely a year passes without tho sceno comingi up in my
dreams with ils accompanying emotions of fear and perplexity. For—
perhaps you know tho story—that
hour was tho general's last. He died
before leaving tho house; died in that
same dork library concerning which
you have asked so many questions.
" 'I    remember    the circumstances
well,  how  wclll   down  to  each   and
every detail.     Our mother had gone !
back to her room,    and the general !
and my  father,   who  did  not linger j
over their    wine—why    should they,
when the general would not drink?— '
had withdrawn to the library at the I
suggestion of the general, whose last
words are yet lingering in my ears.
" 'The time has come for our littlo
talk,' said he. 'Your reception
augurs—'
' 'You do not look well,' my
father hero broke in, in what seemed
an unnaturally loud voice. 'Come
and sit down—'
" 'Here the door closed.'
" 'Wo had hung about this door,
curious children that we wore, in
hopes of catching a ..limpac of the
queer new settle which had been put
inlo place that day. But we seamp-
orcd away at this, and were playing
in and out of the halls when the library door agala opened and my
father cam* out.
" 'Where's Sambo?' he cried. 'Tell
him to carry a glass of wine in to

Why I remomber it 1 do not know,
for Reuben, who was standing where
he could look into tho library when
our father camo out and saw the
settle and the general sitting at one
end of it, was chattering about it in
my ear at the very moment our
father was giving his orders.
" 'Reuben is a man now, and I
have asked him more than once since
then how the general looked at that
critical instant. It is important to
me, very, very important, and to
him, too, now that he has come to
know a man's passions and temptations. But he will never tell me,
never relieve my mind, i.nd I can
only hope that there were real signs
of illness on the general's brow; for
then I could feel that all had been
right and that his death was the natural result of the great distress ol
his heart. That glimpse which lieu*
ben had of him before he fell has always struck me with strange pathos..

I do not wonder ho docs not llko to

" 'It was Sambo, who caine upon
tho general lirst. Our father had not
yet descended. When ho did, it was
with loud cries and piteous ejaculations. Word had gone upstairs and
surprised him in the room with my
mother. I recollect wondering in all
childish simplicity why he wrung his
hands so over the death of a man
he so hated and feared. Nor was it
till years had passed and our mother had been laid in the grave and
the house had settled into a gloom
too heavy and somber for Reuben to
endure, that I recognized in my father the signs of a settled remorse.
These I endeavored to account for by
tho fact that he had been saved from
what he looked upon as political
death by tho sudden but opportune
deceaso of his best friend. This caused a shock to his feelings which had
unnerved him for life. Don't you
think t^is tho true explanation of
his invariably moody brow and th*
great distaste ho always showed for
this same library? Though he would
live in no other house, ho would not
enter that room nor look at the
gloomy settle from which the general
had fallen to his death. The place
was virtually tabooed, and though,
as the necessity arose, it was opened from time to time for great festivities, the shadow it had acquired
nover left it and my father hated its
very door until he died. Is it not
natural that his daughter should
share this feeling?'
"It was, and I said so; but I
would si no moro, though she cast
me llttl- appealing looks which acquired an eery significance from the
pressure of her small lingers on my
arm and the wailing sound of the
wind which at that moment blew
down in one gust, scattering the
embers and filling the hotse with
banshoe calls. I simply kissed her
and advised hor 'to go back with me
to England and forget this old house
and all Its miserable memories. For
that was the sum of tho comfort at
my poor command. When, after another restless night, I crept down in
the early morning to peer into the
dim and unused room whoso story I
had at last learned, I can not Bay
but that I half expected to behold
tho meager ghost of the unfortunate
general rise from the cushions of the
prodigious bench which still kept its
mysterious watch over the deserted
hearthstone."
So much for the passages culled
from the book itself. The newspaper
excerpts, to wliich I next turned,
bore a much later date, and read as
follows:
"A strange coincidence marks tho
death of Albert Moore in his brother's house yesterday. Ho was discovered lying with his head on the
identical spot whero General Lloyd
fell forty years before. It is said
that this sudden demise of a man
hitherto regarded as a model of
physical strength and endurance was
preceded by a violent altercation
with his elder brother. If this is so,
the excitement incident upon such a
break in their usually pleasant relations may account for his sudden
death. Edward Moore, who, unfor-
tunatoly. was out of the room when
his brother succumbed—some say
that ho was in his grandfather's
room above—was greatly unnerved
by this unexpected end to what was
probably merely a temporary quarrel, and now lies in a critical condition.
"The relations between him and the
deceased Albert have always been
of tho most amicable character until
thoy unfortunately fell in love with
tho samo woman."
Al ladled to this was another slip,
apparently from a later paper.
"Tho quarrel between tho two
brothers Mooro, just prior to the
younger one's death, turns out to
have been of a more serious nature
than was first supposed. It has sinco
leaked out that an actual duel was
fought at that timo between those
two on the floor of tho old library;
and that in this duel tho elder ono
was wounded. Somo oven go so far
as to affirm that the holy's hand was
to bo tho roward of hiin who drew
the flrst blood; it is no longor donied
that the room was In groat disorder when the servants fir; I rushed
in at the sound ho mado in falling.
Everything movable had been pushed back against the wall and an open
space cleared, in tho centre of which
could be soon one drop of blood.
What is certain is that Mr. Mooro is
held to the houeo by something oven
mor* serious than his deep grief, and
that the young lady who was the
object of this fatal dlsputo has loft
tho city."
Pasted under this was the following short announcement:
"Married on the twenty-first* of
January, at the American consulate
in Rome, Italy. Edward Mooro, ot
Washington, D.O., United States of
America, to Antoinette Sloan, daughter of Joseph Dewitt Sloan, also ol
that city."
With this notice my Interest In tho
book ceased and I prepared to step
down from tho chair on which I hnd
remained standing during the reading
of tho above passages.

MRS. FANNY E. MINOT.
President ot the National Woman'*
Heller Corps.
Mrs. Fanny E. Minot, president of
the National Woman's Relief corps, ls
an unassuming little woman witb a
quiet, retiring manner, and to talk with
her one would scarcely realize the
strength of character and determination hidden beneath so tranquil an exterior. She ls a woman wbo has always manifested a lively interest in all
those movements of the century which
have brought her sex into prominence.
Her leadership hns always been due
to the fact that others have recognized
her exceptional endowments ratber
than to any personal desire or move
for preferment.
Mrs. Minot is a native of Barnstead,
N.  H.    She Is a charter member of
MRS. FANNT B. MINOT.
Sturtevant corps No. 24 of Concord,
was Its first treasurer, and has also
served as corps president and in subordinate positions. She ls well known
throughout the national organization
as a most earnest worker.
Born Sept. 20, 1848, Mrs. Minot Is a
descendant of John Pickering, who
came from England and settled ln
Portsmouth, N. II.. nbout 1033. She
was educated In the schools of Concord, and nfter graduating from the
high school attended Wheaton seminary, Norton, Mass., where she graduated in 1807 as valedictorian of her
class. In 1874 she married James
Minot, a banker, a veteran of the One
Hundred and Fortieth New York volunteers and a past commander of the
G. A. R. ln the department of New
Hampshire.        **
Mrs. Minot is connected with several
otber patriotic, benevolent and missionary societies. Sbe is president of the
New Hampshire Female Institution
and Home Missionary union, which
was organized in 1804, and treasurer of

and the Woman's club. She Is also a

Woman's ATTlcwardness.
The reaper, the bent figure of a woman gathering an armful of ripened
grain to her bosom and slowly hacking
Its roots with her sickle, ls the epitome of primitive labor—tedious, groping, tugging toll. Observe tbe limited
range of her movements and how nwk-
wardly they nre directed toward herself. Woman by nature acts centrlp-
etally, and by such movements alono
sbe slowly executed her tasks as the
first toiler. Woman is by nature still
primitive, and where not expressly
trained to the contrary works as she
always has—centripetally.
Contrast the flue, far reaching swing
of tbe man mowing or the natural
grace of him as he throws.
For untold generations man scorned
all effort beyond war and chase, leaving woman to toll, untaught aud clumsily, but with infinite patience. The

Use*  of Precipitated  Chalk.
Precipitated chalk can be used dally
with or without castlle soap for cleansing the teeth. It would be well for
those possessing sensitive teeth if after eating acid fruits or salads they
Bhould rub precipitated chalk arouud
tho necks of tho teeth nnd between
tbem on retiring. A little chalk used
wheu llie teeth ure brushed during tho
day ls also excellent for soft aud
chalky teeth.
Precipitated elm Ik Is also a cosmetic.
It can be used In tbe eveniug or daytime for whitening the skin In the
place of ordinary powders, which are
extremely deleterious. A lump dissolved in a little wnter, to which a drop
of glycerin or sweet oil Is added If desired, cnn be applied to the face and
neck with a soft cloth. Either before
or after lt is dry, gently wipe off the
visible powder with a piece of flannel.
It ls absolutely harmless, but will dry
the skin unless some good cream food
is used at night to repair the drying
tendency of the chalk. If applied wet
nt night, softened with waier, on pimples or Inflamed blotches, by morning
tbe Inflammation will be much lessened.—American Queen.

With thumbs tightly bound together
Ten Ichl performs a wonderful trick.
Two members of the audience, chosen
ot random, nre summoned on to the
platform, where tbey superintend the
task of binding tills wizard's thumbs
as tightly together as they possibly
can with strong cord. Some plain
hoops are tho ouly other Implements
used ln this trick. Standing about four
yards from Ten Ichl, n Japanese lad
tosses the hoops In tbe nlr, and ns he
does so the "mikado Juggler," as Ten
Ichl is called, catches them one on
each arm, so that tbey pass through his
bound thumbs and fall just above the
elbow. With thumbs still securely
bound he stretches out bis arms to the
audience, and at a glance it is seen
that the cord has not been tampered
with.
In order to prove that no underhand
methods are made use of in this trick,
the mystifying little wizard requests
the members of the audience who are
on the platform to clinch their fists together ns tightly as possible and on no
nccount to allow them to beaomo unfastened. Then, with thumbs still
tightly bound, he advances toward
them and with n rapid movement performs with bis bound hands what the
hoops performed on him—thnt Is to

Coal Dimt nnd Lnn_r Diseases.
Somo very surprising results which
have attended a series of investigations made by a medical mnn In the
mining districts of upper Silesia nre
about to be made public. Among the
many illnesses prevalent in his district lung dlsekses occupied proportionately a very low. place, and consumptive persons on coming to reside
near the coal mines recovered their
health after some time without undergoing nny special cure.
These facts he is prepared to verify
by statistics. The cures are attributed
by him to the coal dust contained in
the atmosphere, whleh, he alleges, has
a drying and disinfecting influence on
tubercle developments ln the lungs.
The probability of this statement is
increased by the fact that tbe well
known lung remedy, creosote, is derived from coal tar, and it may possibly be present in a crude state in the
coal dust in the atmosphere. It ls now
proposed to erect n Banitnrlum for consumptives in the district referred to
in order practically to test the efficacy
of the new cure.

ago my blood became impoverished
and 1 was badly run down. My hands
and feet were always cold and 1
could not stand the least exertion.
My. trouble was further aggravated
by pains in my kidneys and bladder,
and often I could not go about without aid. I consulted doctors, but
they did not help me, and I was almost ln dlspair when I was advised to
use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I got
six boxes and before they were all
gone I knew I had found a medicine
to cure me. I took the pills for about
a month longer and every symptom
of my trouble was gone, and I have
since enjoyed the best of health,"

The subordination or personality
of the editor to the interest of the
paper of which he is the controlling
spirit ls with some newspaper men a
belief as implicitly believed in as the
Thirty-nine Articles by an Anglican,
or the Wesmlnster Confession by a
Presbyterian. They believe that the
individuality of the man who writes
should not be obtruded upon his readers any more than the individuality
of the tailor who measures him for his
clothes should be apparent to tho public, or than the Individuality of the barber who shaves him should be evident
to everybody who sees him walk down
the street. They hold that the newspaper business differs in no essential
particular from any other' business,
and that, if a man is qualified for his
work, his paper will evidence the fact,
aud he will get public support on the
merits of his publication, irrespective
of all personal and individual considerations. This is undoubtedly true, but
not the whole truth. It is a very
human characteristic to take a greater
interest in any abstract proposition
when it is identified with a personality.
By this means each become correlatives—one is always thought of in
connection with the other, and the
interest of both are thereby advanced.
Even in Britain, the home of anonymous journalism, many of the papers
of greatest influence derive much of
that influence because of association
with tho personality of a man, and in
America the instances are numerous
where the power of a paper has simply
the measure of the personal Influence
of Its editor. Greeley and Watterpon
are past and present examples of the
truth of tnls in the United States, and
in Canada many illustrations of the
same truth could be cited. What made
lue Toronto Globe of the last generation the '|GrIt Bible" but the personality of George Brown? What but the
individuality of W. F, Luxton made
the Manitoba Free Press of the 80's
the power it was in Western Canada?
And, in a smaller way, because of their
more limited sphere of subscribers,
the influence of many a Western Canadian weekly ls acknowledged to be
the influence of its editor, in a direct
and personal sense not usually understood. Instances of the truth of this
will occur to every one vho knows
anything of Western journalism—
cases in which the virile personality
of the man who runs the institution
can be seen by the discerning, not
alone in every editorial, but in every
trial Hem, and almost in the makeup
of the paper.
There are other men who, lf not so
obtrusively original, are still able, and
whose paper from week to week Is
almost tho only means of knowledge
possessed by their brethern of the
craft as to their persbnallty. Of this
latter class Is Mr. W. H. Hall, of the
Wolseley News, To the generality of
the editors of the west Mr. Hall ls
most generally known by the copies
of his paper that from week to week
they find on their exchange desks.
And it must be admitted that the estimate formed of the man from his work
Is a favorable one. The News is in
many respects one of the most creditable of Territorial weeklies. Few
papers bettor fulfil the manifold requirements of that often discussed but
seldom seen sheet—a good local paper,
Many other weekly papers in the West
havo a better mechanical equipment
than tho Nows but few display moro
care and taste In using the facilities
at their disposal. Its makoup and
presswork from week to weok Bhow
unvarying care. The business an
nouncements of the local merchants
are displayed with a judgment often
looked for ln vain ln much more pretentious papers. Its record of local
happenings ts in many respects a
model to otlier Western editorB, the
news being brightly written and well
arranged. Being the only paper published in Wolseley, it places local interests above political bias, and ls altogether independent in its attitude.
Tnls does not imply that the News
has no opinions, or that it is a splne-
leBS wobbler. On the contrary it dis-
. tributes commendation or blame to
both political parties as the circumstances seem to warrant, and thereby
has secured the respect, not only of its
subscribers ln the Wolseley district,
but of the Western world of news-
paperdom as a whole.
The editor of the News Is Mr. W. H.
Hall, whose "counterfeit presentment"
adorns the head of this article. Mr.
."lall is English by birth, a west coun-
rryman, having been born near Bristol.
He wai. educated iu the British grammar school, ono of England's most
famous schools. He has been a resident of Western Canada for more than
: twenty years, coming to the country
in tbe boom year of 1882. His flrst
newspaper work was undertaken in
Portage la Prairie a year later. In
1885 he went to Virden and took
charge of the Virden Advance. For
eleven years he edited that paper, re-
I signing in 189G-- Three years later
he took over the management of the
Western Assurance Company.
That staunch Canadian institution
the Western Assurance Company, has
emerged from one of the most trying
years in the annals of Are insurance
with undiminished prestige. This result is due largely to tho fact that the
shareholders exuiblted their faith in
the company by agreeing to write off
one-half of the capital stock and placing a further $500,000 at the disposal
of the dlreotors ln order that the losses
Incurred in the Baltimore and Toronto
coiii.agratlons might be met without
disturbing the reserve funds of the
company, The fifty-fourth annual
meeting of the shareholders of the
company was held yesterday, and a
copy of the financial statement will
be found ln another column of this
Issue. The Hon. Geo. A. Cox the President, in moving the adoption of the
directors' report, referred to the satisfactory growth in the business of the
company during the' year and to the
encouraging fact that the operations
of the last eight months showed a pro-
fic mat had materially reduced the
loss incurred through the conflagrations in the earlier part of the- year
nie Board of Directors was unanl
mously re-elected, and at a subsequent
meeting re-elected Hon. Geo. A. Cox
as President aud Mr. J. J. Kenny Vice-

Mexican photographers have hit upon a way to make their subjects "look

with a pleased smile. |'What have

says tho photographer, and then, before the man can says which he'll have

Coal and Iron in China.
Cnlna's resources of coal and Iron
are among the largest and most favorably situated in the world. The extent
of the great coal fields has been put
at 400,000 square miles—more than
seventy times the aggregate extent of
all the coal fields of Great Britain. It
is expected that very soon Chinese
coal will be delivered at Far Eastern
ports at prices with which no other
coal can possibly compete, and that
caina. in consequence of this development, will become a large exporter of
iron.

VANCOUVER, B. C, May loth, 1905.
We gather from the information supplied by the City Council Itself that it
ls the intention to ask the taxpayers to
vote money by-laws to the extent of
3467/000. The Council proposes to take
from this sum one amount of $_iil),U00
and another of $_o,ooo, presumably for
street improvements, making a total
Under that heading of $410,000, the balance to be absorbed by English Uay
■■and  other   miscellaneous  objects.
There is a very atrong divergence of
opinion as  to  the advisability of entrusting Buch a vast Hum to the Coun-
'c'.l,   which   says  we   do   not   want  all
'this money now, but we do want to be
-able to spend any portion of it that we
in our lnrinlte wisdom inuy from time
to time deem advisable.    We think  It
may take three years to carry out the
works we have designed—lhat is, some
lucky  realdeuts   will   get   good  streets
this year, while the less fortunate will
-have to wait three years for their turn
-and share of the expend lure of this
-4410,000.
In January next circumstances may
arise which will place In office a totally
"different set of men, with views as divergent as the poles from those of the
present aldermen, and although the lat-
'ter may be quite honest  in  their expressed Intentions, yet they are utterly
jl-owerless to bind their successors.   If
a portion of the money will not be re-
-^Jiir-rt for three years, wherein lies the
necessity   of   placing    such     a    large
amount in the hands of the    present
'Council.   If, as stated, It Is only intciid-
'ed  to spend $150,000  a year on street
improvements, then let each year and
'icouncH  provide  for the  necessities as
' they arise, he they large or small.   Tlie
idea as  formulated  to   borrow such  a
large sum of money three years ahead
■ot time ls placing In the hands of what
may   be  Justly   termed    an     Itinerant
' council a most dangerous weapon.    A
won! to the wise should be sulflclent.

The funeral of Mrs. MaryC. Mitchell,
whodjfed Taosdny uight, took place
on Thursday iil'teriiroui from the family
residence un the Cemetery roml. South
Vancouver. Deceased was 03 yours ol
11;.", mid was the widow of tlio late
Keiljunilu Mitchell, Two sous uud a
daughter are lefl to mourn her loss.
In the majority of coses walking
dresses must be put quite out of the
region of home manufacture. They
mean tailor work, and tailor work and
amateur fingers do not go together, except in the rarest cases. But a smart
little frock proves the exception to the
rule, for there is no reason why lt
should not be successfully turned out
by untrained hands.
It is a speciallly attractive model at
this time of the year, for though pictured in cloth, with velvet relief In the col
lar and quaintly conceived cuffs, it ls
equally adaptable to the linens of the
immediate future, so that those who
wisely take timo by the forelock In the
matter of dress cannot do better than
consider Its merits seriously ln this
connection,
The costume obviously owns a banded bolero, with a square basque at the
back and cross'ng over quite low ln
front, ub Its principal feature, completed hy quite one of the smartest skirts
of the season for a walking costume.
The coat Is thrown back with gracefully careless revere, faced with the main
cloth or linen, and ls worn over one of
the new lawn shirts with hemstitched
giandfather frills.
The chief Interest centres In the skirt,
It portrays the most favored style of
the moment, and Is also far and away
the most important matter In making,
for a lltttle banded bolero (given always an absence of special tailor effects) Is an easy enough matter to
make.
Short skirts seem to have finally succumbed to the charms of the box-pleat
this season. This has ousted all other
forms of pleating and finds serious rival only in the full umbrella-like plain
skirts, for which we are primarily Indebted to the American maiden. The
only variety occurs ln the spacing of
the pleats, some being set with their
own width or more between them;
some, as in the sketch, meeting, though
in no sense overlapping, a very narrow
part in the immediate front being left
plain.
In the making of such a skirt we
find one of the greatest advantages in
having a pattern specially cut, for then
a kindly authority has the paper pleated Just exuetly as the stuff should be,
which makes Its manipulation a thousand times simpler than when only
marks indicate the folding of the material. These folds should he carefully
marked top and bottom on the material
when the skirt ls cut out, either tacking cottons or tailor chalk being employed for this purpose. Then when the
seams are stitched and pressed the
pleats may be easily formed, tacked ln
position, and pressed. This must naturally be a work of time and care, and
after the usual pressing is complete the
edge of each pleat should be pressed
singly, the Iron being placed on the
underneath side. This will give a sharp
knlfe-Hke edge to the pleat, and Is a
wrinkle  worth  remembering.
On the coat little comment ls needed.
A good f'rm interlining must be Inserted In the collar, cuffs, and the
fronts to within 2 Inches of the arm-
hole. For this tailor's canvas will be
found the best medium with cloth, giving place to strong Irish linen when a
washing coat is under manufacture. A
bund slightly pointed In.front receives
tlie coat at the waist, the smartly cut
little basque being likewise mounted
into it.
PEOPLE  WILL  PERSIST iu trading where they can get the best quality of
of Groceries at the most reasonable prices, and it is quite natural they should.

variety of widths. Like frocks, they

BEARNAISE SAUCE.
Put the yolks of five eggs Into a basin, add a pinch of salt and a little
pepper, and whisk them well. Place
llis basin in a saucepan containing
boiling water, add one ounce of butter,
and stir them until they begin to
thicken. Then remove the basin at
once from the water and stir in a second ounce of butter, then replace It ln
the saucepan for a few seconds, stirring
it gently all the time, and add two
more ounces of butter, separately, ln
the same way. Finally, stir in a teaspoonful of tarragon vinegar and a teaspoonful of finely chopped tarragon.
When the sauce ls ready It should be
of the same consistency as thick '-melted butter"; It; Is Important that the
sauce should he served as soon as possible after lt Is finished, for if kept hot
for more than a few minutes It Is liable
to become oily.
