"A Kr.i.tfininaii,"
Mr. Roger Jocosk's stories of tha
Canadian West in the 'eighties, related in "A Frontiersman," are of
never-failing color and viVacity. Invalided from thc N.VV.KLP.,    ho    be-
1 came a missionary to the Indians in
an inaccessible corner of British Columbia. There was much to do, he
nays. The heathen lived healthily in
their well ventilated barns of hewn
cedar; but tho righteous must needs
have ■tufty little houses, microbe
traps to cultivate the phthisis which
Bent them up to heaven fn a hurry.
They sacrificed  much to    dress   like
,missionaries, gave themselves airs
and graces among the heathen, and
were needlessly uplifted because successive white men had been sent
from the outer spaces to learn their
precious language. I flatly declined
to leai n .that wonderful dialect, be-
causo they had need of English, and
1 had no occasion for Cactkshian;
wore gum boots or deerskin hunting-
dross in church to show that religion
ilid not consist of ugly garments,
nnd discouraged thc endless loquacity
of their prayers ns tending only to
rolf-righteou.ness. It did them
good to be shocked, because a mission has no need to be a ranch for
raising prigs, and a Christian Indian
ought not to be distinguished from
his fellows for unctuous raKality,
vanity and gloom.

Origin of Hobsoti's Choice*
Mr. llut'per tells its all there ia to
be told about '1 'homes Llobson, the
fuinoi s carrier between London ailr
Cambridge, who tlied in 1631. Iv
was irom him tbat, tho proverb ol
"llobson's choice," arose, meaning
of course, a choice whiih i_ n<.
choice. ''The saying arose from the
livery stable business carried on by
llobson ut Cambridge, in addition to
bis carrying trade, lie is, indeed,
said to have been the lirst who
made a business of letting out saddle horses, liis practice, invariably
iollowetl, was to refuse lo allow any
horse in bis stable to be taken out
of i s proper turn. "That or none
was his unfailing formula, when the
Cambridge students, eager to pick
and choose, would have selected their
own fancy ih horseflesh. Every customer was served alike, without favor."—London  Telegraph.
The Troubles . < .
In a moment of absent-mindedness
we consented to officiate as one of
the judges at the carnival last week,
says the editor of The Aylmer, Ont.,
Sun. At. that time we thought we
knew all about fancy antl comic costumes, and that it wouldn't take us
two minutes to convince our confreres who should have thu prizes.
Before the work had been in progress
two minutes, we were perfectly willing for the other fellows to do the
judging, while we acted as secretary.
They would not have it that way,
and it. took the three of us nearly
two hours to award ten prises. And
it seems that there weie at least a
do/.cn in every class who should have
had the prizes rather than the ones
we picked out. The critic could not
get at the other judges very well so
we had to take all the abuse, which
continued until the hockey match last
night switched their attention. About
200 who were not in costume, but
were wailing for a skate, have refused to recognize us since, whi'e our
little girl whom we left in the band
room for the "few minutes" while
we did the judging, got mad and
went home, nearly fio/en. Ever act
as judge at a carnival? Try it some
time, and then come to this office for
Derivation of Word " News."
"News" is nothing more than a
plural formed from the adjective
•'new," treated as a substantive. The
singular was once spelled NKAVE and
the plural was once spelled N EAVES.
Each word was then regarded as a
dissyllable, and was so i rofiounced
Like the word "tidings" the woid
"news" is now plural in form, but
singular in sense. Though the latter
contains the initial letters of the
four points of the compass, the explanation usually given is only a
fanciful way of deriving the word.
The four cardinal points of the compass are North, East, South, Vtest,
not North, East, IVest, South.
"New" is from the same root as
"now," and, as Professor SI-rat observes, it means ' that which is
now," "news," therefore, is something recent, or something belonging
to the present time.
The Sudbury Nickel Milieu.
Fifteen years ago tho world's sup.
1 ly of nickel was chiefly drawn from
the mines of New Caledonia, supplemented by the Gap Mine in Pennsylvania,  and  a  few  isolated  workings
(n    Sweden    anil    .Norway;      to-day
nbout one-half is derived from     the
Sudbury district  In  Northern   Ontario, where mining operations began in
3 880.     Some years ago  experts   employed  by  the  United States      Navy
■Department    examined   tbo  Sudbury
deposits of nickol-boarlng olio (.i pyr-
rhotite containing  from   I J-.'l   to  ."IJ
)ier cent, of nickel,   and from 2 to   I
) er cent,  of copper,   wbicb  does not,
therefore, deserve the namo of "k.up-
fer nickel"  o''  "goblin-copper")    nnd
reported that there were 650,000,000
tons  of  ore   in   sight,   and  since then
other important discovot ies, some   of
which     are already  being  developed,
Lave been made within  an area     of
about 2,000 square miles.     In  1000
the  Sudbury    distiict  produced   7,-
080,000       pounds       of    nickel       in
"matte,"   which  averages  about    25
per    cent,    copper and  18  per cent,
nickel,  and    there can   be no  doubt
that is product will eventually monopolize the world's markets,and that
Sudbury is destined to occupy much
the same position in regard to nick-
.1-miiiing that Kimberley holds in regard    to    the    production    of    diamonds.       Wherever strength, malleability, the capability of taking a tine
polish, antl freedom from rusting are
requited—as in tho construction    of
cannon,    small     arms,   nrmor-plate,
boilers and machinery—nickel steel is
in  request,   antl  the fact  that      the
price of  nickel  has risen considerably  in  the  last  two  or  three     years
would appear to show that the supply    has   not   Increased   pari  passu
with the   demand.—London Morning

to see D. Fittis cutting away at thi

" 'Say wha's dead again, D. Fittis,' 1
cries, minding that the body was daft.

the utmost confidence.

"I wus a sort of staggered nt this, and
I says   sham-like,   'What   did   Tammas

"I thocht that would puzzle him, if it
was just his daftness that made him say

"Weel, lads, his confidence about the
thing sickened me, and I says, 'Leave

all about it.'
" 'I canna stop my work,' he says,
'but Tammas Haggart fell down the
quarry four nichts since. Ou, it was in

" 'And was that Tammas Haggart

" 'It was so,' says he, tearing away ln

" 'Ye had been there?' I says.
" 'I was,' says he, 'and so war tlie

some uncommon thochts in my mind. It
would be wearing on to four o'clock
when I got up shivering, and walked
back to whaur D. Fittis was working.
There was a question I wanted to put to
" 'D. Fittis,' I Fays, 'was there ony of
the Balribbie folk as visited Tammas
Haggart's wife in her affliction?'
" 'Ay,' says the crittur, trying to bieak
a supple whin with his foot, 'the wifle
as lives beneath me was in the house at
Tillyloss when in walks a grand  leddy.'
" 'So, so,' I says, 'and wus Chirsty
ta'en up like about her man bein   dead?'
" 'At,' says J). Fittis, 'she was greeting, but as soon as the grand woman
comes in, Chirsty takes the wifle,as lives

to her.'
" 'D. Fittis,' I says, sternly, 'tell me
what Chirsty 'food whispered, formuckle

" 'Weel,' he says, 'she whispered, "If

"I denounced Chirsty in my heart at

to make allowance for women, and I

" 'And wha would .Teames be?'

Attracting Attention

As far back as the year 1858, successful placer mining was carried on at Horse Beef
bar, near the town of Lillooet. The adjoining ground is being worked with profit at
the present time,
A conipany 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.

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.
4. Its Salubrious Climate.<^^
In the dry belt, and at an altitude that renders the seasons temperate and equably,
the climate is most suitable for health-seekers. Semi-tropical fruit may be grown, and

III   tli«  Kllhirut-y   Fut-nitlirtt  Industry.
On crossing tbe threshold of either
the  "Kiilarney   Furniture Industry,"
or the CuKilcrosse School, as it is
called, the feeling i.s one of exhilarating surprise und pleasure. Hern
are neither pigs, nor Paddies, nor
bog-oak horrors. Tbe lirst-named in-
stilt|tion—once the Kiilarney School
of Arts and Crafts—has been put lip
on u thoroughly business footing,
unu furnished with thc best models
in craftsmanship from England,
France und Italy. A great deal of
the work executed was disposed of
at the London sale of the Home
Arts and Industries' Association,
Minio little time ago, and since thin
the manager has in hand orders to
the amount of $2oU, which implies
admirable management, us the industry was started only about live
years ago with a little class of boys
taking carving lessons ut Kiilarney
House. Now it hus developed into a
thriving business, including ecclesiastical work, school furniture,
electric littings, and overy brunch of
wood carving and gilding. The airily
inclined visitor will hanker after the
stained green curd-boxes, gilt with
appropriute word.ng, "The iiridge of
Sighs." the literary will appropriute
book-cases and slides, with the motto, "un livie est un ami qui ne
trompe jamais," while the artistic
will hardly know which most to admire, the whitt'V'Ood bedstead, which
bears the diploma of thc Glasgow
Exhibition, the colored bas-reliet of
poppies blowing before the wind, the
true lovers' knots for electric light
fittings in Kauri pine, or the dark
wood carvings copied front Roman
churches. Further on one pusses
through a modest doorway into a
little school of industry quite unique
in Ireland, and which would have delighted the soul of Ruskin, Thc latticed casements open on green paces,
the white walls have a tulip frieze,
und over the mantel arc thc lines:
There are three things,  fair maiden,
AV.tli which I'd see .toil ludem;
Your book wherein to pray,
Yonr purse wae.e.'.th to pay,
Your needle and . our t untile,
To keep jour lingu's nimble.
In the various departments the
girls learn sewing and various housewifely uris, such us cooking, so neglected as to be almost unheard of in
the cottages, and launury work,
which is highly successful. From .25
to 30 girls can be received as boarders for a nominal sum a week. These
are the industries which, owing to
circumstances too long to chronicle
and too melancholy to recall, were
disappointed of receiving a substantial grant. It is dillicult for people,
although of the highest ideals and
entire singleness, of heart, to continue to support with undiminished
fuith and enthusiasm, even a beautiful and philanthropic institution at
heavy personal loss. The tourist season being now in good swing, it is
hoped all those who are intelligent
enough to know that to leave Ireland
without seeing Kiilarney is to remain ignorant of her supreme
beauty, will not drive past these
sources of interest unheeding, but
will, by orders to tho furniture industry and donations to Eady Cast-
lerosse's school, second this rare and
most gallant effort of a patrician
Irishwoman to help her country people to help themselves. One of the
very greatest pleasures when at Kiilarney is to stroll along tho road
where Lady Castlerosse's workers
bave their interesting emporium, and
watch them through the open doorway, laboring industriously and
singing cheerily over their  work.
A touching story is told of a beautiful girl living in the Canadian
Northwest who was deserted by her
lo"er. It was her custom to resort
to the .Saskatoon Uiver on moon-
lifs.it evenings, and at the former
tiysting place watch and Walt for
Ihe return of the one she still loved
She also conceived the idea that a
loon which haunted that portion of
the river would yet let her know
something about the absent one:
On  the bunks of the  Saskatoon
B.v the IjK-ht of the silvery ino.in,
A   midden 'fair

"Oh,  will  he not come soon,
The maiden cries,

As she waits b.v the Saskatoon,
