Remarkable Incrau.e of tha White Popu-
latiaa Within Their Borders.
The population of the principal
British colonies is just now a matter
of special interest, lhe figures Riven
with regard to it by writers and
speakers differ widely. This is not
surprising, as most of the statements
are based upon official returns published from two to twelve years ago.
Perhaps a cautious estimate of the
numbers of the white population at
the present moment may he of a little service. I have been at some
pains to make one, and I believe that
the figures given below will be found
pretty close to the mark. Jn the case
of Africa, south of Zambesi, it is
impossible to hope for exactness, and
I have therefore given a figure sliuht-
ly below what stems to me probably
correct. The total—11,075,000— will
doubtless appear low to manv colonists, but I must remind these that
to arrive at my result not onlv aborigines but Asiatics resident in the
colonies, have been deducted.

Cani.ii   IKiylr <t» 11  Detective.
A friend of Sir Conan Doyle once
asked the great author of so manv
detective stories why he did not establish a detective agencv and employ Sherlock Holmes' methods in
solving his clients' mysteries and
conducting his business.
"Well," said Sir Conan, "I have a
very good reason. You see that all
thc knots of thc Sherlock Holmes
type were of my own tying, und.
' naturally, for me to untie them was
simple. If I undertook to unravel
thc entanglements of other people I
believe I should fail. On one occasion, however, I solved what mifrht
have been a puzzle to some. I wns
in a tailor's shop while a rather unattractive mon was sele timr a pair
of trousers. He flatly objected to
striped material, and I got the Idea
that he was nn ex-convict. To sat.isfv
myself I visited a number of prisons,
and sure enough I found that man's
picture in thc rogues' orallery. Doubtless he had hnd enough of striped
wearing apparel."
Caat ot London - innke.
It takes seven million tons of air
a day to carry away the London
smoke, compared with txio million
tons of water to carry away the sewage. This poisoned atmosphere haa
already proved fatal to many of the
line old trees for which the neighborhood of London, v/an once famous,
and the destruction of the Kew arboretum "is only a question of
time." Moreover, a bad fog may
cost ♦25,000 a day for light.ng
alone, and Mr. .T. ('. Hnwkshaw, un
authority on the subject, thinks that
$35,000,000 a year is not an exees-
aive ostiuiati for the total expense
of smoke pollution to London.

The Indians on the Yukon are
good-natured and harmless, says a
writer in horest and Stream. In
many ways they remind one of th.i
Southern negro. 'ihey sing "lay
Girls a High-Born Lady" and all
the latest music hall airs. It is said
tnat uie iiiiiish drum beat sounds
around the world, but nowadays
popular songs do the same thing,
and in a very much more thorough
way. At t.uum. in the Ladrom.-s,
tho newspapers tell us the natives
sing "Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-aye," and
this air is often heard along thc
Yukon. No doubt it has penetrated
to Timbuctoo and the sacrtd city of
Thibet. Judging from the Ylikon,
native music seems to be dying out.
The catchy airs of thc music hall are
supplying a world of music. rl he
Indians have very Ken. 11 ears, though
their voices can hardly be called melodious. Some of them will catch an
air alter hearing it once, and reproduce it corrcetly by humming or
on the mouth-organ. I never heard
an Indian whistle or sing at the full
extent of his lungs, though very
likely they do both.
Give an Indian a mouth-organ,
"juice harp," as Huckleberry Finn's
negro had it, or an accordion, and
you will insure his happiness, no
matter if he is cold or starving. The
Indian is as yet ignorant of the banjo, but when ho is once introduced
to it I think it will be his favorite
instrument, as it is with his saolo
brother. It must bo borne in mind
that I am speaking of tho interior
Indians. The coast In iahs are a
very different breed. They are lig.iters and quarrelsome, robbing thc
white man by exorbitant packing
I charges now that they have learned
it isn't wise to do the thing by
force of aims. It was these Indians
who, by right of their possession of
the passes, made thc interior an unknown country for so long to the
white mnn. Up to a very recent date
they effectually monopolized the
trade of the Yukon, 'ihey even checkmated the, Hudson Bay Company
whet' it attempted to gain an entrance into the country from the
east, capturing and burning the post
established at Fort Selkirk in lSo'2.
These Indians are powerfully built,
and a twelve-year-old girl will trudge
along with as heavy a pack as the
average white man can carry, while
their skookum packers carry as much
aa a horse.
Indians are not very particular
about tho condition of their food,
and will dispose of some pretty rank
messes, but one thing they will not
oat is wolf. More surprising still,
if true, is the reported fact that
Indian dogs will not eat wolf. Thv^o
dogs rob white men's caches, tearing
qpen sacks and gorging on raw I our
nnd oatmeal, and nothing from soap
to sulphur matches is safe from their
depredations. Wonting to dispose of
the carcasses of the wolves we killed
below Selkirk, I asked tho Indians i!
they could use them. They said no.
I suggested feeding to the dogs, i.i'd
they shook their heads again. "1 og
no muck muck wolf," they said.
"Todder way, W'olf muck muck clog."
When the time comes for starving,
the Indian tnkes it as 11 matter of
fact and contentedly. Only once In
a while is there a weal*-li\er<d O&lti
who cries nnd sitvs: "Muck mt ek
nil gone. 'Fraiil poor Indian die."

Policy Seems to Be Much on the Lines of
Napol. tin's  Forgery of Peter
the OiDiit's Will.
The passage through the Dardanelles of two unarmed Kussian torpedo-boat destroyers is tin incident
apparently insignificant in itself,
but, viewed in the light of Groat
Biitain's traditional distrust of Kus-
m* i, and tinder the magnifying glass
nf irresponsible alarmists, it appears to be almost a menace to the
existence of the Empire. His Majes-
i.v's representative at Constantinople
has protested to the I'orle, who is
the guardian of tho Black Sen, and
though nn answer has been returned,
any possible explanation has been already anticipated and discounted.
The net ion of the Russians was an
open violation of the Treaty of I'aris. England assumes her attitude of
vi.tuous indignation, and Russia
quietly pursues her policy.
SiiIInIhh-* 'h famous Manic.
When England and franco undertook to uphold the tottering Turkish
Empire, and threw themselves upon
Russia in the Crimean War, the former country, as Lord Salisbury has
since said, "put its money on the
wrong horse." However, the "wrong
horse" was first under the wi.e.
When the war was about at an end,
Lord Lyndhurst vigorously declared
that "there could be no place without Jirst destroying Russia's Black
Sea fleet, and laying prostrate the
foitifieations which protected it."
Therefore    the    great ks      and
defences of Sebastopt rned     in
1830 by an English em■.... u', were
demolished, and the T y of Paris
which concluded the connict expressly I
provided that the fortress should nott
be rebuilt and that tne Black Sea
should be free from the warships of
every power. The key to the Black
Sea is (he Dardanelles, swinging ostentatiously at the Sultan's guide.
Russia's eye hos ever been upon it.
.imt Violation ol' Treaty.
Prince GortchakofT, whose ambition
it was to be the bi/jmarck of Itustia,
s.iw his opportunity in 1870 when
Krance and Germany were at war.
He issued a curt notification of tho
Czar's intention to abrogate that
clause of the Treaty of Paris which
forbade the rebuilding of Sebastopol.
France was in no position to object;
England could not but liie a formal
proUst. Thus Sebastopol is stronger than ever before.
An Aliened Hi each ot faith.
By the treaty of Berlin in 1878,
which made peace between Russia
and Turkey after their second con-
bict, all the powers were rewarded
for their kindly forbearance. It was
then that Britain got Cyprus, while
tho Black Sea was made formally
what it already was geographically,
.1 Russian lake. No restrictions wero
removed, however, from the passage
of the Dardanelles. These straits
were to remain inviolate. The
Czar's land frontier was extended to
embrace Kars, a port of jBatoum. It
was stipulated that Botoum should
remain unfortified, but Russia soon
found occasion to disregard that provision. This violation formed the
text for other charges of bad faith;
but it is said now that there was a
secret understanding among the powers at the time of the treaty that
Batoum might be protected.

Kipling I. Fond of Pie.
Rudyard    Kipling,    it appears,    is
fond of apple pie baked on the American  system.     To gratify his taste a

the manufacture  of    these  pies     hus

According to th. ae who hnve thought
the thin}? over, 3t would defy the face of
clay to net fo.th '.\ is prodigious affair of
Tillyloss, the i>:;,3. ot of which was that
Tiiiiiiuas Hagfiar. lecume a humorist. It
happened so far ba 'd. as the l.onjr Year,
no culled liy rea on of dise.ise in the
potato crop; nnd doubtless the house,
which still stands, derides romance' to
those who cavil tf. un outside stair, Fur-
, Wiennore, the ines;' who only knew Hag-
rs, whether personal-
.ten mutter or from
ive traveled, will not
he may once have
man.    There   is  also
tfart in his later ye
ly or through wr:
Thrums folk who l
i-eudily admit that
ibeen an every-day
against me the * ezing practice of the
farmer of Lookab >utyou, who never
passes Tillyloss, if t iere is a friend of
mine within earsho , without saying:—
"Gravestane or n. i grnvestane, Tammas
Haggart would hav i been a humorist."
Lookaboutyou tl us implies that he
knew Haggart for a man of parts when
the rest of us were ilind, and it is tantalizing beyond ordin .ry to see his word
accepted in this ma ter by people who
would not pay him for a drill of potatoes
without first stepping it to make sure of
the length.
I have it from Tammas Haggart that
until the extraordinary incident occurred
which I propose tolling as he dropped ii
Into my mouth, he was such a man as
myself. True, he was occasionally persuaded by persons of Lookaboutyou's
'stamp to gloss ovjr this admission, as
incredible on the face of it, but that was
in his last years, when he had become
something of a show, and was in a puzzm
ah "it himself. Of the several reasons he
gave me in proof of a non-humorous
period in his life the following seem
worthy of especial attention:—
First, that for some years after hi'
marriage he had never thought of him sui
as more nicely put together than othi t
riien. He could not say for certain
whether he had ever thought of hiius-e f
at all, his loom taking up so much of
his time.
Second, that Christy was able to aggravate him by saying that if which was
■which she would have married James
Third, that he was held of little ac
! count by the neighbois, who spoke of his
[.living ' above Lunan's shoppy," but
never Realized the shop as "below Haggart's house."
Fourth, tbat while on his wanderings
;he experienced certain novel and singular sensations in his inside, which were
probably his humor trying to force a pas.
Fifth, that in the grent scene which
lended his wanderings, his humor burst
'its banks like a dam, and had flowed in
! burns ever since.
| During nearly forty years we contrived
.now and again to harness Tammas to
litis story, but often he would stop at the
'difficulty of realizing the man he must
lliave been in his pre-humorous days,
land remark, in his sarcastic way, that
;the one Haggart could not fathom the
iother. Thus our questionings sometimes
'ended in silence, when we all looked in
trouble at the lira and then went home.
'As for starting him on the story when
ihe was not in the vein, like breasting
the brae against a high wind.
When the events happened I was^ only
|n lad. I cannot send my mind back tc
!the time when I could puss Haggart
^vithout the slue-glance nearly all
Thrums offered to his reputation, and
he is best pictured hunkering ut Tillyloss,
one of a rt.w of his admirers. After eight
o'clock it was the pleasant custom of the
weavers to sit in the open against a house
or dyke, their knees near their chins and
their ears ready for Haggart. Then his
luce would be contracted in pain as some
strange idea bothered him and he searched
for its humorous aspect. Perhaps ten
minutes afterwards his face would expand, he would slap his knees, and we
knew that the struggle was over. It wus
one of his ways, disliked ut the time, yet
admired on reflection, not to take us into
the secret of his laughter; but he usually ended by looking whimsically lu the
direction of the burying-ground, when
we were perfectly aware of the sourco of
"ihe joke, and those of us nudged each
other who were not scared. Until the
spell was broken we might sit thus for
The space of a quarter of un hour, none
t*peaking, yet in the completest sympathy,
because we were all thinking of the
same thing, and thnt a gravestone.
Tillyloss is three broken rows of houses
In the east end of Thrums, with gardens
between them, nearly every one of which
used to contain a pig-sty. There are other
ways of getting into the gardens than
by windows, for those who are sharp at
knowing a gate when it looks like gome-
thing else. Three or four other houses
stand in odd corners, blocking the narrow
road, which dodges through Tillyloss
like a hunted unitnul. Starting from the
"vest end of the suburb, as Tillyloss
will be called as soon **.■  wa °*n Mr tha
ii. wiL.iuuu tuniraing,   tho road climbs
i-aight from the highway to   the upper-
ist row, where it runs against  a  two-
ry liouse. Here we leave it, us many a
mus stranger has  done,   to get out of
yloss the best way   it   can,   for that
storied house in where Tammas Hag-
lived, up the outside stair,   the west
in mas flitted   to   the   Tenements  a
. nt he became m humorist,   and  It
to an extraordinary tribute to his memory that the road V in the pump to his
old residence in \ 1 iyloss is still called
Haggart's Ready. Many persons have inhabited his room since he left it, but
though the younger ones hold out for
an individuality of their own, the gray-
be.irds still allow that it is Haggart's
house. To this day Tillyloss residents
asked fru landmark to their dwellings
may re;>ly,
'I'm sax houses frae Haggart's," or
"Onybody   can   point   out  Haggart's
stair to you. Ay, weel, gang to that, and
then coice back three doors."
The entrance to Lunan's shop was
beneath Haggart's stair, which provided
a handy retiring place in wet weather.
Lunan's personality hod the enormous
Bdvantase of a start of Tarn " has
i ..xiOvVLU i^uniin, who in ..*.-. _. .« crabbed age scowled at the sight-seers that
came to look at the second story cf the
house and ignored the shop. As boys we
envied, more than learning, the companion whose father kept a shop, and I
remember Lunan's son going with his
flst for the bankers son who—though ho
never really believed it—said that hi3
father could have a shop if he liked.
Yes the grand romance of Haggart choked
the fame of Lunan even with the lads
who played dump at Tillyloss, and the
shop came to be localized as "beneath
Haggarts stair." Even Lunan's stoutness, which was a landmark in itself,
could not save him. I'le passage between
his counter and the wall wus so narrow
and the rest of his shop so full of goods
that before customers could enter Lunan
had to come out, but in this quandary
his dignity nevor left him. He always
declined to join the company wbo might
be listening on the stair to Tammas's
adventures, but some say he was not
above hearkening through a hole in one
of the steps.
The exact date of Haggart's departure
cannot be determined, though it was
certairiy in the back end of the year
1834. He had then been married to
Christy a little short of three years. His
age would be something beyond thirty,
but he never knew his birthday, and I
have heard him say that one of the few
things he could not understand was how
the relatives of a person deceased could
know the precise age to send to the
What is, however, known for certain
is that Tammas's adventures began within a week of the burial of old Mr. Yuill,
the parish minister. There had been a
to-do about who should preach the funeral sermon, two ministers having words
over it, and all Thrums knowing that
Mr. Yuill bad left seven pounds to the
preacher. At this time Haggart did not
belong tc the Auld Lichts, nor was he
even regular in his attendance at the
parish church, but the dispute about
the funeral sermon interested him greatly, and when he heard that the session
was meeting to decide the affair, he
agreed with Chirsty that he might do
worse than hang around the door on the
chance of getting early information.
There was a small crowd at the door on
the same errand, all of whom noticed,
though they little thought it would give
them a tonic to their dying day, that
Haggart had on his topcoat. It had been
an old one of Mr. Yuill's, presented to
Tamilian, who .-ould not lill it, but refused to hnve it altered, out of respect to
the minister's memory. It has also been
fondly recalled of Tummns that he wa>
only shaven on the one side, as if Chirsty
had sent him to the meeting in a hurry,
and thnt he had nut the look of a man
who was that very night to enter upon
ex)H!rlencos which woulti confound the
world. • ■
"It was an Impressive spectacle,"
Snecky Hobart said subsequently, "to
see Taiiitnas discussing the burial sermon, just as keen as me and T'nowhead
nnd then to think thut within twenty-
four hours the very ministers themselves
would lie discussing him."
"He said to nie it had lioen a dowie
day,"   T'nowhead always remembered.
"He shoved me when he wits crushing
in nearer thc door," was Hender Hobble's boast.
"But he took a snuff out of my mull."
"Maybe he did, but I was the last he
spoke to. He said, 'Weel, Dan'l, I'll be
stepping   liuck to Tilly.' "
"Ay, but I passed him at the Tenements, and he says, 'Davit,' he says, and
I suys, 'Tammas.' "
"Very like; but I was carrying a ging

As fur back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse IVef
bur, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the present time.
A company is now working a gold dredger on the Fraser, with gratifying success, and
a new company has been formed with a capital of $350,000, to operate an improved
dredge near the town of lillooet.
2. Its Promising Mineral Lands. =-^§;
A_\*ni_i.soN lakh and bridge river mining properties will prove themselves sufficient to

3. Its Fishing and Hunting Grounds-^^
Increasing numbers of tourists from all parts of the globe testify that the sportsman's
Paradise is here. Mountain sheep, bear, deer, and all kinds of large and small game
abound. Anglers find the lusty trout where least expected, and fresh salmon cease to
be a luxury.

Shrewsbury, in common with most of
the heroines in modern comedy, has
u past. Uut what is not, Lis to he
feared, always the cu.se with thc lud-
ies mentioned, it is not u jiusi to he
ashamed ol*. It is a page, almost, indeed, a volume of pages, in English
history, and Shrewsbury did not
jiiran that Englishmen at home, or
tho world abroad, should remain forgetful of this. Jt does not happen
that the picturesque town on the
Welsh border has any very famous
local name upon her annals whi.h
(ould bo commemorated. But she hud
something jnore considerable; she had
U great and tei rible buttle to remember which turned aside the whole
current of the kingdom's story and
loaned the beginning of a fresh chap-
tor in the chronicles of the throne.
Five hundred years ago, upon the
verdant plain whicli, three miles
north of the ancient town, is bathed
hy the Silver Severn, was fought
that desperate conflict, wherein Hotspur fell, with more than 2,000 of
the best-bred gentlemen in the realm,
the issue of the day being to confirm
the Crown to the Duke of Lancaster
as Henry IV. Last Tuesday, Julv
21, was the actual day to be celebrated, that being the date of the
famous battle of Shrewsbury. Ihe
army of King Henry IV. net that of
young Percy in Shrewsbury's erecn
meadows, when, out of a force not
exceeding 12,000 on either side, those
ii'.a's left nearly a third of the
t.ital number dead in the clover and
the corn, or limping, wounded, from
the dreadful contest into the market
place. All these things have been
culled into life again by the little
border town.
.Shrewsbury, however, aad already
a magnificent contributor te her historic festivities in Shakespeare, and
with much good sense she made a
Shakespearean week out of the show.
Appropriate sti uctures had been
ruised; Mr. Benson's company had
been engaged, and the program promised every day, besides lectures,
sermons, discourses, and excursions
pertaining to the events to be revived, included one or more plays of the
immortal dramatist. These, of
course, comprised "Henry IV.."
"Richard II." and "Henry V.," from
the historical plays: nor could anv
better way be found for bringing back
to all minds that blood-stained and
tumultuous epoch. Most of us, if
truth were told, get our English history from tho Baid of Avon; and
even those who go deeper into records never really shake off yie profound impressions left b.v his majestic genius. Wherever and whenever
we study those plays—and most of
nil if studied or s'en on the stage
within eyesight of the battlefield—it
is as if we lived in those fierce times.
Kead "Henry IV.," and you want no
grander guide—nay, vou will hardlv
accept any other guide. The pages
of any prose history seem dull and
barren in contrast with the superb
power and piercing insight, of Shakespeare. We see, as if they lived, th..
armies draw nigh to Shrewsbury,
Hotspur marching swift and fiery,
hoping to meet Owen Ciendower s
levies hastening from Snowdon and
I lynlimmon: while Henry ol" Lancaster, with his equal force of 12,.Oil
men, presses on from Coventry to interrupt the junction,  if that mny be.
At noon the armies come together
in that fair spot beyond the town
which still bears the name of battlefield. From noon till evening thoy
light with such ferocity that long before sunset 6,000 or 7.000 are killed
or wounded. And this slaughter, be
it remembered, was all wrought with
sword and spear on one side, und
with bows and arrows upon the other. King Henry IV. owned, indeed,
a big gun, with which, ufterward, he
terribly frightened the Scotchmen ut
Berwick, and Kulstuff in the pluv
talks about having his fat body filled up with lead. But the carnage at
Shrewsbury was mainly done by the
deadly cloth-yard shaft, which has
perhaps been too lightly abandoneJ
as a weapon of war. Prince Ilarrv
himself, for whom this field was thu
first of his warlike experiences received a wound in the face from an
arrow, and Hotspur was slain bv an
arrow which pierced his eye. "When
that dauntless leader broke by an
early charge the ranks of the King's
army, the Royalists closed up behind hiin,.and then for two sanguinary hours "by Shrewsbury clock"
s'lowered their Steel-pointed shafts
into the clubbed and huddled rebels.
There must be plenty of those fatal
weapons, winged "with the gray
goose feather," even now lying und t
lhe grass and the market gardens b.v
■the side of the Severn.

An interesting account of how the
Americas Cup wus won in 1851 is
published by a Canadian contemporary; When the yacht America, it
says, arrived in England in 1850-51 '
her owner, Stevens, published a che.,!- I
lenge to sail anything for 411,000 to
£10,000, but he luid down so many
Stipulations that the challenge was
not accepted. 'J hen the Americans
appeared to think they were being
treutrd discourteously, and the Ko,v-
ul Yacht Squadron went out of its
way to offer a cup, value ill00, to
be sailed for—open lo all—without
conditions or time allowance; course,
round the Isle of Wight. Now this
is the- cup that the Americans ure
pleasjd to call the Queen's Cup for
some reason only known to themselves. Possibly the hull mark on
silver in England being a crown, the
Yankees assumed that this must be
Her Majesty's privute totem. In
1851 live Queen's cups were given,
not one bearing the slightest reseni-
blunce to the Royal Yacht Squadron
Cup. Aug. '22 was the eventful day.
Fifteen yachts startid, ranging from
the barque Brilliant, 898 tons, to
the cutter Aurora, 47 tons. Only
live could be termed racers or ever
won a prize, The five wero tho
Freak, Volante, Arrow, Alarm and
Aurora. The start was very peculiar Tho licet went one way—tho
America another, "Round the Isle
of Wight," in yacht racing parlance,
means round the Nab—and then
right away. Round the Nab went
the Britishers, but the Yankee, to
the amusement of the spectators and
the disgust of the officials, took no
notice of tho distant lightship, but
headed straight for the corner of tho
island, scraped over Bembridgo Lodge
and then took a short lino to Culver Cliff, thereby effecting a saving
of from 11 to 18 miles. Off Bon-
church tho Britishers caught up and
the Freak and Volante got to windward of the America. Then a series
of disasters occurred. The Arrow
grounded off Ventnor, and the Alarm
went to her assistance; off St. I^a'.v-
ronce the Freak fouled the Volante.
Thus four of the five British racers
wore out of it. Passing tho Needles
tho America was a long way ahead,
but coining up the Solent the litt!.e
Aurora gained rapidly and reached
Cowes eight minutes behind tho America. The Aurora sailed the course,
the America had not, und the Britishers claimed the cup, but as tho
Squadron people had omitted to te'l
the Yankees that they must round
the Nab, they saw no other way out
of the difficulty but to hand the cup
to tho first  yacht in.

On two recent occasions, when
school children were to the fore, attention was called by disinterested
observers to their lack of courtesy,
says  The  Globe.
The (lovernor-Oeneral, in addressing the children in tho park on Empire Bay, said: "With all tho self-
reliance that marks a new country
like this, it would be well to remember thc generous traditions and the
courteous manners of the old country. There wus sometimes a tendency to demonstrate self-reliunce by
a want of respect to fellow-men and
to those in authority."
Mr. William Scott, Principal of the
Normal School, speaking nt the
luncheon given by the directors of the
Exhibition on "School Children's
Dav," contrasted the kind and courteous ways of the boys and girls of
Quebec with the rudeness, or at least
bluntnoss, of those in Ontario. He
hnd considerable experience in Quebec, and was inclined to think one
reason for the difference is that the
people there live in the past, while
those of this I'rovinee are more democratic.
