Good Concert at New Denver.
Local Talent Exceptionally Clever.
Every seat in the Bosun Hall was
occupied on Tuesday night, when the
Methodist community gavo their St.
Patrick's Day concert. The quality ol
tbe entertainment was such that one is
t: .und to recognize the sterling ability
ol local talent to bo found in our town.
To say that musical critics present were
delighted is to put it mi'dly. They
were enthused. Nearly every number
was rapturously applauded. The lion
of the evening was unquestionably Mr.
D. Nicholson, a violinist of exceeding
merit. His delicate touch and execution iu many diffcult paFsaf.es was marvelled at by the audience, and he was
accorded an ovation But h as is seldom
bestowed upon an amateur. His
obligntoa, too, were indeed pleasing,
and it may safely be said Ihat his pe;-
iorniancea will long be rtuiMiibered.
Mis. Brockman scored several BUCCCBS-
cs. This lady has a contralto voice if
great wealth, r.nd her first effort " Kil-
larney," received enthusiastic applause.
For au encore she gave " Come back
to Ei in," and this wan heartily applauded. Mrs. Brockman, though, was heard
to greater advantage in that sweet
musical lullaby, " Sing me to Sleep,"
and in this the violin obligate was hou!
stirring. As a well merited oncore she
eang " The Last Rose ol Summer."
Mrs. A. St. Cla:r Brindle's rich
soprano voico was greatly admired. She
sang " Whisper and I shall hear," and
the audience demanded a repetition.
Tho violin obligato was very effective
Mr. J. Ilolden was given a rousing
oncore for his banjo solo, "Bonnie
Scotland," and in response he played
the popu'ar' Lucerne Schottisehe " in
pleasing st* lo.
Mrs. Rankine's biilliant pianoforte
���elections wore espectslly enjoyed, as
was alto a pianoforte selection by Miss
Ada McDougald. Mr. Rankine gave
an original monologue, in which lie dispensed much satire on passing local
events. It was cleverly done and no
one should take offence at bis pin-prick
inuendos, Mr. Nelson's Iiish recitation, " Buddy's Eicelsior," caused
much miith. Whether he emulates a
coon, a stage Irishman, or the king of
boosters he shines in the part. Miss
Winifred McDougald gave a reading,
" When Uncle Polger hung the picture on the wall," and J. C. Harris
eang a rip-roaring Scotch dialect song
entitled " Green grow the Rashes, 0,"
nnd called back ho sang a humorous
ditty in wliich " Fol-dc-rol-de-rol-de-
riddly i-do " was a conspicuous pie-
amble. Mr. St. Clair Brindle sang
" True till Death " in Ids usual pleasing style, and tho trio by Messrs. Rankine, Nelson and Gifford " A Laughing
Song," was well applauded, aa waa also
a vocal quartette by Messrs. Rankine,
Kelly, Nelson and Brindle.
We understand that the proceeds
amounted to nearly $70.
At the conclusion refreshments were
sorvod, and thus concluled a very successful program.

The Arrowhead Dramalic Club gave
a splendid production of" The Chimney
Coiner " on Saturday evening last.
Mr. T. II. Dunne as P. Probity was
fine, especially in the scene where he
discovers tho loss of the money. In
fact bis acting all through was excellent, nnd Mrs. Dunne as Mrs. Probity
played her part to perfection. Mr.
Harkins as Solomon deserves Bpecial
mention, as wo were informed that it is
Mr. Harkiu's first attempt on the stage.
The other characters were nlso well sustained. Tlie people of Nakusp who attended thc performance nil speak in Hie
highest praiss ol the production, t'lie

who hitherto had never known of the

Huts off to the T. I. Society, it is getting there with both feet.
There came to our desk this wook
No. 2 of the most recent journalistic
fledgling, It is printed and published
at Endeiby, B.C., by Harry Walker,
who a few yean ago edited a New
Denver magazine known aa"Momcnts."
Tho new vendue ia a 12-page paper
IU x 9 inch pages, and is nicelv gotten
up and exceedingly well edited. Wo
congratulate the people of Endcrby on
securing so able a journalist aa " Hank.
Reklnw," and wo welcome " Walker's
Woekly " to our exchange bureau. It
will bo a means ol installing Enderby
on the map again���which town fell
from grace with the demise of the
" Progress." We suppose Harry knowa
hia own business best, so it might be
rather rude on our part to suggest a
tillo for his paper that would in itself
he a standing ad. for Enderby and ita
beautiful environments.
The editor of thia paper ia about to
make considerable improvements in
in the quality of the aheet, and he teela
that the occasion ie an opportune one
for a heart to heitit lalk with readers
and advertisers. We wish to bay lirst
of all that tho revenue of the Reviiiw
in no way warrants any improvement;
aa a matter of fact tha increments are
lower than tho standard living ratio,
but wo do not attribute that fact to the
people of New Denver. To produce a
weekly newspaper that ia commensurate
with the needa of the diatrict, we have
found it imposriblo singlo-handed to
fill the bill. In short, no editor can
produce an amount of local reading
matter such aa we havo produced without a great strain. Our readers who
aro not familiar with tlio mysteries ol
printing will bo surprised to loam thnt
every letter and spaco on this page have
to be put into position for copying Irom
and after use the individual letters and
spaces icturnod to their respective
boxes main. This entails much tedious
labor to the edilor-printor.
In that respect we, perhaps, have
bitten off more than we can chew. It
has always been our aim to produce a
good local paper, and we have never
had any hut kinds words for our endeavors. It is, however, a difficult
task to rustle news when nothing happens, and occasionally a " bum" sheet
is produced. It Would be a simple
matter to turn out a weekly aheet, of
which scissors and paeto were the
leading features, but wo have nothing
Lo reproach ouiselves for in regard to
that. It is not our mission to supply
news ol the world. The diatrict ia well
supplied daily from Nidaon. It will
be time enough for the Slocan to flap
it wings more when Die local industries
are out of swaddling clothes.
Theisfore, we shall still pursue our
bent, but on a moro comprehensive
scale. From now on tlio editor will
devote his time to tho literary and
commercial end ol tbo paper. Tho
mechanical department will be in other
and we hopo more onp.ible hands. This
arrangement will permit of tho editor
paying regular visits to every point of
the diatrict, and thus we hope to glean
a weekly budgtt of news that will enhance the value of the Review both to
ita readers and the editor.
We will in a few weeks abolish our
preaent etylo of " patont innards" in
favor ofan all "home print." Wo haro
felt for some time that our iiaelulnoai
in a ineaHuro is paralysed by our ntng-
nant inside pages, and we want lo control every thought and word contained
on all four pages.
To do this much mousy is noceisary.
It will cost $100 a month more for the
increase of our staff, and we will havo
to do aome tall rustling around the
country to pull oven, but we are hopeful indeed of increased buiincss as the

It waa on the 14th of November last,

Three weeks later a saucer of freshly
picked raspberries were laid on our desk
by a local amateur gardener, and theae
were grown in the open air. We also
saw strawberries which were picked in

raas Day, a few days before which tho
first snow of thu aeaBon fell.

Tharc are two points ill the article on
pruning apple troCB by Mr. Stirling
that has just been published in this
paper Ihat I should like to emphasize.
The first ia to keep a ccntro to the Ireo,
amain trunk, not a bunch of big branches
or two or three big ones, but if possible
a straight centre stem evenly distributed
up down nnd around it. The second
point is the absolute necessity of having
an ideal tree in your mind when you
start to pruno, so that nil your cutting
may bo directed towards making your
trees as like the ideal as possible.
The best model for tbi3 ideal tree
that I can suggest is a well grown young
Cottonwood, not ono that has fought
his way up amidst a crowd of oilier
trees towarda the blessed sun-bine, but
such a one as wo may seo growing in
an open space with well developed
branches all around it.
Plant yearlings and educsto the trees
yourself and they will help to educate
you. Do not be afraid to cut the tops
back when you net the treo out, it has
lost most of ita feeding roota in the
operations of being dug and transplanted
and cannot support a largo top properly.
We have all seen young trees whicli
have been planted without the necca-
aury pruning; for the whole summer
they appear to s'and still, making no
growth, I.ut with a melancholy little
liiineh of leaves at the end of eath spindly shoot, or thev may throw out a lew
leaves ami then die.
What are you going lo show'at our
Fall Fair? We niuat get rendy now if

There should be classes for fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc, and there should
be prizes lor Ihe handiwork ol both boys

exhibition of poultry, for this country
should become as well known (or its
chickens aa for Its fruit. We can certainly make a splendid allow ol our products If we do our best, and the ikaling
rink with one or two extra windows
let in, will make a magnificent exhibition ground.
A great deal of money Is sent away
from here each year for plants that
might well be grown in the neighborhood. If ono of our market gardeners

there ia a big demand for geraniums,

Col. R. T. Lowery, writing in the
B. C. Saturday Sunset, makea the following remarks:
" In British Columbia we havo booms
in mining land, timber, nnd real estate,
but one ol our greatest assets haa not
yet boon exploded to any yrcat extent.
I refer to the touiist trade. Theie ia
millions in it for tin's province if we
only reach out and get the globe trot-1
ters to stay here for months at a lime.

World surpaases this glorious province in

All that is necessary to do is to have
good hotels at every pointof superior
scenic beauty and use elegant printing
to till the world. It would pay the
government to apeud vast sums in fofi-
teu'ng this Irado. Tlie C.P.R. has done
a great deal, but only at a few favored
spots. Years age I wrote to Sir Thomas
Shahghucsay asking him to build an
hotel ut New Denvor, us there would be
millions in it. He replied Sttying that
the C.P.R. waa not climbing for millions and Ihat the road would give
aoinoone else a chance to'build tlio
j hotel and make the millions. I agitated
for fifteen years to have a mint built in
Canada, and ono ia now in operation
and making money, and I hope lo live
long enough to seo British Columbia
one ol tho greatest resorts for tourists
oil this whirling planH of ours."
Wo may say that tiio natural cliarma
of New Denver have ever been an incentive spurring its residents cn to
great effort lo secure recognition from
the C.P.R., who practically havo lhe
only means of diverting the flow of
tourist travel inlo any channel they
desire", In this regard New Denver has
never been given opportunity to dis-
plny ita glories lo tourists. But tho
residents have never let up in their cn*
dcavors to per undo the C.P.R. to follow Ihe advice of Colonel Lowery, and
even last weuk Sir Thomas Shaughncsay
waa again appealed to by a well-known
Now Denver business man. In the
meanwhile tho town is endoavoring to

declaring there never was anything
more beautiful or anybody as pretty
as Maddy was in her rich party dress.
Maddy was fond of jewelry���as what
young girl is not?���and felt a flush of
gratified pride, or vanity, or satisfaction, whichever one chooses to call
it, as she glanced nt herself in the
mirror and remembered the time
when, riding with the doctor, she had
met Mra. Agnes, with golden bracelets flashing on her arms, and wished she might one day wear something like them. The day had come

Maddy wns not ns happy in possession of the coveted ornaments as she

Clyde an attraction she did not possess. Guy saw it, too, and while
complimenting his pretty step-mother,
kept his eyes fixed admiringly on
Maddy, who started him into certain
unpleasant remembrances by asking
if the doctor had come yet.
"No���yes���there he was now," and
Guy looked* into the hall, where the
doctor's voice was heard inquiring
for him.
"I want to see him a minute, alone,
please. There's something I want to
ask him." And, unmindful of Agnes'
darkening frown, or Guy's look of
wonder, Maddy darted from the room,
and ran hastily down the hall to
where the doctor stood, waiting for
Guy, not for her.
He had not expected to meet her
thus, or to see her thus, and the sight
of her, grown so tall, so womanly, so
stylish, and so beautiful, almost took
his breath away. And yet, as he
stood with her soft hand in his, and
surveyed her from head to loot, he
felt that he would rather have had
her as she was when a dainty trill
shaded her pale, wasted lace, when
the snowy ruffle was iastened high
about her throat, and the cotton
bands were buttoned nbout her wrists,
where gold ones now were shining.
The doctor had never forgotten Maddy as she wns then, the very embodiment, he thought., of helpless purity.
The little sick girl, so dear to him
thou, was growing away from him
now; and these udornings whicli marked the budding woman, seemed to remove her from him aud place her
nearer to Guy, whose bride should
wear jewels, just as Maddy did.
She was very glad to see liiiu, she
said, asking in the same breath why
he had not, been to the cottage, it
she had not grown tall, and if he
thought her improved with living in
a city.
"One question at a time, if you
please," he said, drawing her a little
more into tlie shadow of the hall,
where they would be less observed by
anyone passing through.
Maddy did not wait for him to answer, so eager Wns she to unburden
her mind and know if she ought to
keep the costly presents, at which she
knew he was looking.
"If he remembers his unpaid bill,
he must consider me mighty mean,"
she thought; and then, with her usual
frankness, she told him of the perplexity and asked liis opinion.
"It would displease Mr. Guy very
much if I were to give them back, '
she said; "but it hardly is right for
me to accept them, ia it?"
The doctor did not say she ought
not to wear the ornnments, though
be longed to tear them Irom her arniB
and throw them anywhere, he cared
not where, so they freed her wholly
from Guy.
They were very becoming, he said,
She would not look ns well without
them; so she had better wear them
to-night, nnd to-morrow, if she would
see him, he would talk with her further.
Dissembling doctor! He said all
this to gain the desired interview
with Mnddy, the interview lor which
Guy was to prepare her. That he had
not done so he felt nssured, but ho
could not be angry with him, as he
came smilingly toward them, asking
if they had ...talked in privacy long
enough, nnd glnncing rather curiously at Maddy's fnce. There was nothing in its expression to disturb him,
and, offering her his arm, he led her
back to the drawing rooms where
Agnes wns smoothing down the folds
of her dress, preparatory to receiving the guests just descending tbe
stairs. It was a brilliant scene which
Aikenside presented that night, and
amid it all Agnes bore hersell like
a queen; while Jessie, with her sunny
face and golden hair, came in for a
full share of attention. But amid the
gay throng there wns none so fair or
ao beautiful as Mnddy, who deported
herself with as much ease and grace
as if she had all her life long been
accustomed to just such occasions as
this. At a distance the doctor watched her, telling several who she was,
and once resenting by both look and
manner a remark made by Maria Cutler to the effect that she was nobody
but Mra. Remington's governess, n
poor girl whom Guy hnd taken a fancy
to educate out of charity.
"Ho seems very fond of his charity
pupil, .upon my word. He scarcely
leaves her neighborhood nt all," whispered old Mrs. Cutler, the mother of
Maria, who, Guy snid, once fancied
Dr. Holbrook. and who had no particular objections to fancying him
now, if it could be reciprocal.
,  _P_.t the .doctor was only intent oa
ItTaffcry; "RrtOWVng always" .urft where
she was standing, just who was talking to her; and just how far from
her Guy was. He kpew, too, when
the latter urged her to sing; and.
coming nearer, heard her object that
no one cared to hear her.
"But I do; I wish it," Guy replied
in that tone which people generally
obeyed; and casting a half-frightened
look at the sea of faces around her,
Maddy suffered him to lead her to
the piano, sitting quite still while he
found what he wished her to play.
It was his favorite song, and one
which brought out Maddy's voice in
its various modulations.
"Oh, please, Mr. Remington, anything but a song. I cannot sing,"
Maddy whispered pleadingly; but Guy
answered resolutely, "You can."
There waa no appeal alter this, but
a resigned, obedient look, which made
the doctor gnash hia teeth ns he leaned upon the instrument. What right
had Guy to command Maddy Clyde,
fand why should nhe obey? and yet,
as the doctor glanced at Guy, he felt
that were he in Maddy's place, he
should do the same.
"No girl can resist Guy Remington," he thought. "I'm glad there s
a Lucy Atherstone over the sea." And
with a smile of encouragement for
Maddy, who was pale with nervous
timidity, he listened while her sweet,
birdlike voice trembled for a moment
with fear; and then, gaining confidence from its own sound, filled the
room with melody, and made those
who had wandered off to other parts
of the building hasten back to see
who was singing.
Maria Cutler had presided at the
piano earlier in the evening, as had
one or two other young ladies, but
to none of these had Guy paid half
the attention he did to Maddy, staying constantly by her, holding her
fan, turning the leaves of music, and
dictating what she should play.
"There's devotion," tittered a miss
in long ringlets; "but she really does
play well," and she appealed to Maria
Cutler, who answered, ''Yes, she
keeps good time, and I should think
might play lor a dance. I mean to
ask her," and going up to Guy she
Baid, "I wish to speak to���to���well,
Jessie's governess. Introduce me,
Guy waited till Maddy was through,
and then gave the desired introduction. In a tone not wholly free from
superciliousness, Maria said:
"Can you play a waltz or polka,
Miss Clyde? We are aching to exercise  our  feet."
Maddy bowed and struck into a
spirited waltz*, which set many of the
people present to whirling in circles,
and produced the result which Maria
bo much desired, viz., it drove Guy
away from the piano, for he could
not mistake her evident wish to have
him as a partner, and with his arm
around her waist he was Boon moving rapidly from that part of the
room, leaving only the doctor to watch
Maddy's fingers as they flew over the
keys. Maddy never thought of being tired. She enjoyed the excitement, and was glad she could do
something toward entertaining Guy'B
guests.    But Guy did not forget her
for an instant. Through all the mazes
of the giddy dance, he had her before his eyes, seeing not the clouds
of lace and muslin encircled by his
arm, but the little figure in blue sitting so patiently at the piano until
he knew she must be tired, and determined to release her. As it chanced, Maria was again his partner, and
drawing her nearer to Maddy, he said,
"Your fingers ache by this time, I
am sure. It is wrong to trouble you
longer. Agnes will take your place
while you try a quadrille with me."
"Oh, thank you," Maddy answered.
"I am not tired in the least. I had'
as lief play till morning, provided
they are satisfied with my time and
my stock ot music holds out."
"But it is not lair for one to do
all the playing; besides, I want you
to dance with me���so consider yourself invited in due form to be my next
Maddy's face crimsoned for an instant, and then in a low voice she
said, "I thank you, but I must decline."
"Maddy!" Guy exclaimed, in tones
more indicative of reproach than expostulation.
There were tears in Maddy's eyes,
nnd Maria Cutler, watching her, was
vexed to see Aow beautiful was the
expression or her face as she answered frnnkly. "I hnve never told
you that grandpa objected to my taking dancing lessons when I wrote to
him about it. He does not like me
to dance."
"A saint!" Maria uttered under her
breath, smiling contemptuously as she
made a movement to leave the piano,
hoping Guy would follow her.
But he did not at once. Standing
for a moment irresolute, while he
looked curiously at Maddy, he said
at last:
"Of course I interfere with no one's
scruples of that kind, but I cannot
allow you to wear yourself out for our
"I like to play���please let me,"
was Maddy's reply; and, as the set
upon the floor were waiting for her,
she turned to the instrument, while
Guy mechanically offered his arm to
Maria, and sauntered toward the
green room.
"What a blue old ignoramus that
grandfather must be to object to dancing, don't you think?"
Maria laughed a little spitefully,
secretly glad that Maddy had refused, and secretly angry at Guy for
seeming to care so much.
"Say," she continued, as Guy did
not answer tier, "don't you think it
a sign that something is lacking in
brains or education, when a person
sets up that dancing is wicked?"
Guy would hnve taken Maddy's
side then, whatever he might have
thought, and he replied:
"No lack ol brains, certainly;
though edncation and circumstances
have much to do with one's views
upon that subject. For my part, I
like to see people consistent. Now,
that old ignoramus, as you call him,
lays great stress on pomp and vanities, and when I asked him once what
he meant by them, he mentioned dancing in particular ns one of the things
which you church people promise to
renounoe"; and Guy bowed toward
Maria. tfliPrfviuced.. luu.wiu�� Uutt aba

"But Maddv. There's no reason
whv she should decline," she said;
and Guy replied:
"Respect for her grandfather, in
her case, seems to be stronger than
respect for a higher power in some
other cases."
"It's just as wicked to play for
dancing as 'tis to dance," Maria re-
miir-ked impatiently, while Guy rejoined:
"That is very possible; but I presume Maddy has never seen it in that
light, which makes a difference"; and
the two retraced their steps to the
rooms where the gay revelers were
still tripping to Maddy's stirring
After several ineffectual efforts
Agnes had succeeded in enticing the
doctor away from the piano, and thu*
there was no one near to see how
at last the bright color began to lade
from her cheeks as. the* notes before
her ran together, and the keys assumed the form of one huge key wliich
Maddy could not manage. There was
a blur before her eyes, a buzzing in
her ears, and just as the dancers were
.- entering heart and soul into the mer-
! its of a popular polka, there was a
sudden pause in the music, a crash
among the keys, and a faint cry,
which to those nearest to her sound-
j'ed very much like "Mr. Guy," as
Maddy fell forward with her face upon the piano. It was hard telling
which carried her from the room, the
doctor or Guy, or which fnce of the
three was the whitest. Guy's was
the moat frightened, for the doctor
knew she had only fainted, while
Guy, struck with the marble rigidity
of the face so recently flushed with
excitement, said at first, "She's dead,"
while over him there flashed a feel-
ing that life with Maddy dead would
be desolate indeed. But Maddy was
not dead, and Guy, when he wont
back to his guests carried the news
that she had recovered from her
faint, which she kindly ascribed to
the heat ol the rooms, instead of fatigue from playing so long. The doctor was with her and she was doing
as well as could be expected, he
said, thinking within himself how he
wished they would go home, nnd
wondering what attraction there was
there, nojjrthat Maddy's plncetwas
vacant. *Guy was a vastly miserable
mnn by the time the last guest had
bidden him good-night, and be had
heard for the hundred-nnd-fiftieth
time whnt a delightful evening it had
been. Politeness required that he
should look to the very last as pleasant and unconcerned as if upstairs
there were no little sick girl, nil nlone
undoubtedly with Dr. Holbrook. whom
he mentally styled a "lucky dog," in
that he was not obliged to appear
again unless he chose./
The doctor knew Maddy did not require his presence after the first half-
hour, but he insisted upon her being
sent to bed, and then went frequently
to her door until nssured by Mrs.
Noah thnt ahe wns sleeping soundly,
and would, if let alone, be well as
ever on tbe morrow, a prediction
which proved true, for when at n
late hour next morning the family
met at the breakfast tnble.  Maddv's
was the brightest, freshest fnce ol
the whole, not even excepting Jessie's.
Maddy, too, was delighted with the
party, declaring that nothing bul
pleasurable excitement nnd bent had
mnde her faint, and then, with all
the interest which young girls usually attnch to fninting (its, she asked
how she looked, how she acted, if
she didn't appear very ridiculous, and
how she got out of the room, saying
the only thing she remembered after
falling was a sensation as if she were
being torn in two.
"That's it," cried Jessie, who readily volunteered the desired information. "Brother Guy was 'way off
with Maria Cutler, and doctor was
with mamma, but both rnn, oh, so
last, and both tried to take you up.
I think Miss Cutler renl hateful, for
she snid, so meanlike, 'Do you see
them pull her, as if 'twns of the
slightest consequence which carried
her out?'"
"JesBie," Guy interposed sternly,
while the doctor looked disapprovingly at the little girl, who subsided
into silence after saying, in nn undertone, "I do think she's hnteful. nnd

A Plume of Fairy Lightness and Ever
Changing Dimensions.
A comet is distinguished usually by
a nucleus, by an envelope called tbe
coma, which surrounds tbe nucleus,
and, last, by Its luminous tall streaming behind tbe nuclens for perhaps a
hundred million miles and more as the
comet swims toward the sun. Occupying a volume thousands of times
greater than the sun, the question naturally arises, how can a body with so
vast an appendage sweep through the
solar system without deranging every
planet? Fortunately for the preservation of tbe solar system, a comet, so
far from being a compact mass, ls often transparent. Stars have been distinctly seen without perceptible diminution of brightness not only through
the tail, but even through the nucleus.
In structure the tall ls a gossamer of
molecules so ghostly that In comparison the filmiest of bridal veils ls
coarsely dense and the thinnest haze
that hovers on the horizon ls an Impenetrable blanket Indeed, the earth's
atmosphere on the clearest day ls far
denser. Hundreds of cubic miles of a
comet's tall are probably outweighed
by a jarful of air. A plume of such
fairy lightness can hardly be supposed
to remain permanent, and so It ls not
astonishing to find tbat during Its swift
journey around tbe sun a comet's outlines are Incessantly changing. An
Interval of a few days or perhaps of
a few hours may work wonders ln Its
diaphanous texture. Its path is Its
only permanent characteristic, indeed
the only characteristic by which It can
be surely identified If it ever returns.
From all the known facts astronomers bave concluded that the nucleus
of a comet is merely n mass of meteors
easily dispersed into small groups or
distributed gradually along the orbit
until eventually tbe comet ls completely disintegrated and extinguished. Astronomical history offers considerable
evidence ln support of this hypothesis.
Blela's comet, discovered ln 1820 and
carefully observed on each return,
split iuto two parts and reappeared as
a curious double comet ln 184G. Wben
It revisited the earth ln 1852 tbe two
parts had drifted away from each other and were separated about 1,000,000
miles. Since then the comet bas disappeared. Every six and a half years the
earth crosses the track of tbat lost
comet. Meteoric showers then rain
upon us. In these meteors we see nil
that ls now left of Blela's comet. Similarly, the great comet of 1882 literally
lost Its head by breaking Into four portions, each of which will some day
form a separate comet. Another link
la this chain of testimony ls presented
by the chemical composition of meteorites which have found their way to the
earth, a composition which agrees exactly with that of a comet���Waldemar

among a lot of cowboys and half naked natives. Tbe cattle were corralled
under the trees, and wben one was
ready to be taken aboard a rope was
tied about Its boras. A cowboy on
horseback then rode Into the surf,
dragging the frightened steer into tbe
water. The rope was tossed to a half
naked native wbo was swimming, and
be ln turn carried It to tbe men waiting in a small boat. These men pulled
tbe animal, which must now swim or
drown, to tbe bout and tied hlm by
the horns to its side. After eight steers
bad been tied up ln this manner tbe
engine on the steamer was set to work
and the boat pulled alongside by means
of a rope. The cattle were then hoisted on board by tbe use of a bellyband.
Tbe method of handling these dumb
animals ls brutal, and, while the men
seem to use as much care as possible
In moving them nbout, tbelr piteous

and It seems tbat some more humane
method of putting them aboard might
be adopted.
Tbe Japanese sailor on these ships ls
said to be tbe best for keeping tbe ship
clean, while tbe native excels in handling the boats, especially in rough
water, Tbe Hawaiian is a bora swimmer, and native boys will follow these
vessels for several hundred yards as
they art, leaving Honolulu, swimming
alongside and diving for coins thrown
overboard by tbe travelers. Tbe passage on these boats ls always rough,
and on tbe Ewalanl, as the ship lay at

were Intensely warm. Fretghtlsg In

Particulars of a very mysterious
lisappearance of a box of gold coin
in its way from London to Brazil
have just become known, leading to
the conclusion that a clever and daring theft took place at some point
of the journey - between East-cheap
and   Liverpool.
On the afternoon of Thursday, Nov.
I, four small iron-bound boxes,
weighing about 20 pounds each, were
delivered by a firm of shipping agents
acting, it is understood, on behalf
of a bank at the Eastcheap offices of
the London and Northwestern Railway, consigned to Para, Brazil, by
way of Liverpool. Each of these
boxes, it has since become known,
oontaincd $5,000 in half-sovereigns.
Their contents, however, it is stated,
��ere not specially described, and
the boxes were booked as ordinary
parcels at company's risk.
They were accordingly dealt with
in the usual way and packed Into s
oollecting van, which went to Euston
station, picking up parcels from several city houses en route.
The four boxes having been booked
at Eastcheap, there was no necessity
to rebook them through the Euston
parcels office, consequently there is
no official record of how many of the
number actually reached the London
and Northwestern terminus, whenco
they were sent on to Liverpool by tha
9.20 train for shipment to South America.
When the money reached Liverpool
It was found that one of the four
boxes was missing, and information
was immediately wired to the con*
Bignors and to the railway company-
Up to the present it is an absolut** '
mystery where the box has disappeared. Euston station, Liverpool, and
the intermediate stations at which the
train stopped have been searched
without any result, but even before
this was done the suspicion that the
loss may have occurred between the
Eastcheap offices of the company and
Euston led tho company to call in
the services of the Metropolitan and
City police.
Of course,, there is the very slight
possibility Ihat the missing $5,000
may turn up amongst some overlooked luggage, but fears arc entertainer!
that the valuable consignment was
watched from Eastcheap by experf
thieves, and that they managed to
remove the box while the van attendants were engaged in picking Qp

Tells How he Spent Three Thousand
Dollars    in    Search    of
Physicians were entirely baffled by
the case of Mr. Robert Squires, of
Shoal Lake, Man. He owns a thousand
acres of land in the west, and said
he was willing to give it all to be restored to health. His trouble started
with an ordinary cold that was neglected. Let Mr. Squires tell his own
"I have spent over three thousand
dollars in my search for bealth; have
travelled from place to place looking
for suitable climate. I came to the
conclusion that climate made no difference in curing throat or lung troubles. At the health resorts consumptives died there as at any place else.
I determined to find a home remedy.
I think I tried every one of tlie so-
called cures for consumption. The
only remedy that ever helped me was
Psychine, and a significant fact about
Psychine is that it is not a 'cure-all,'
like the others, but specially for
throat and lung diseases. Psychine
was the last remedy'I tried, and I
wish it had been the first. My case
was a very bad one and no hope was
held out by any of the eminent medical men that I would get well.
"A friend advised me to use Psychine. The first few bottles gave
great relief from coughing, and seemed to ease the pain in the lungs.
Within a month the cough and niglit
sweats had disappeared, and I had
greatly regained my strength. I used
ten bottles, but my case was a serious
one and I didn't begrudge the cost,
for I was completely cured after medical men considerd my case hopeless.
My lungs are now Bound, and no sign
of disease whatever is apparent.
"Shoal Lake. Man."
Thousands of others hnve borne similar testimony to the power of Psychine to not only cure coughs, cold,
Ia grippe, catarrh, bronchitis, chills,
night sweats, but also consumption
and all wasting diseases. It strengthens the stomach, aids digestion, and
builds up the entire system. It is a
never-failing remedy.

"Hero" Riddled With Shot and Shell
to Test   Modern   Guns.
The once powerful battleship Hero
now lies "a sheer old hulk," indeed,
on the Kentish Knock shoal near the
mouth of the Thames. She is a sorry
spectacle, almost submerged at high
water, her hull riddled with shot
and Bhell. His Majesty's battleships
Dominion and Hibernia, two of the
finest vessels in the navy, used the
obsolete Hero for a target, and noval
experts are just beginning to realize
the fierce destruction these ships
effected. The Hero is admittedly a
thoroughly-antiquated craft, but her
armor was considerable. From the
ram to 30 feet from the stern ran an
armor belt of from 8 inches to 12
inches in thickness. Her one turret
was of 12-inch compound armor, as
was her conning tower and redoubt.
As a guide to the marksmen the
Hero's sides were marked off with
thick white bands into lettered sections, and after the first few shots,
when the range had been found, the
gunners of the two modern ships
sent shell after shell with relentless
accuracy into the iron sides of the
old  ship.
The testing of the utility of certain
delicate electrical instruments aboard
a ship subjected to battle fire was one
of the many services the Hero had
to rerve. Tlie results or this experiment rightly remains an Admiralty
secret, but the pffects of the fire on
the old shin's armor remains tor
any passing fisherman to see. At low
water the old Hero, but lor a strong
list, appears to be floating. But her
tunnel is gone, ob is her fighting ton.
though her one mnst survived the
fire. Forward the Hero escaped the
worst part of the fire, though one of
the first shots found the base of the
turret, and would, by blowing off
their muzzles, have Buccesslully put
out of action the two 12-inch guns
it  contained
The turret suffered severely, its 12-
inch armor being torn about in places
like so much tinfoil. Amidships projectiles have torn through the plates,
in many cases the hole of one overlapping that ol another. Thc battered ship soon sank. She could not
well have done otherwise, for hor
nides were like a couple of sieves.
Her top-hamper went the way of the
funnel���overboard. The upper deck
was swept practically clean. The
Hero was shot at on three separate
occasions. She can be of no further
service to the navy, and her end will
probably be to serve once more as a
target���then  for torpedoes.

Mysterious   Young   Women   Have   a
Piano on  London Streets.
Yet another charming mystery has
been added to the many which make
the western squares of London as
romantic as the New Arabian Nights.
Two masked ladies, both obviously
young, both divinely tall, and both, as
the crepe fails to hide, much more
than common fair, have begun to appear there night after night, seated
in a rude cart containing a strangely-shaped box, and, says the London
correspondent of The Liverpool Courier, drawn by a spavined horse led
by a dour-faced driver. The cart
stops. The driver leans sombrely
against the shafts. One, of the masked
figures rises���the strange box is discovered to be a piano���and in another moment a swift prelude has rippled out, and a round throbbing
soprano voice is soaring through the
The young voice sways, the white
fingers flash easily above the key's,
the masks show queerly in the vague
lights ol the lamps. A little crowd
inexplicably collects, shirt fronts and
cigar ends gleam on the balconies,
and���the Bad-faced driver may be observed to have pulled himself together and to be making an undemonstrative pilgrimage with another and
much smaller box. The song ceases,
the singer resumes her seat, and the
strange equipage, jolting like a tumbril, carries the silent figures further
into the night.
Rumor, of course, ever busy on
such occasions, has not failed to surround the apparition with much conventional romance. The girls are girls
oi high birth, making a tour out ol
sheer deviltry and for the soke of a
startling wager, or they are once-
famous concert artists whom competition haB forced into the streets, or
they are women of title, whom the
recent financial crisis has robbed of
all their fortune.
The second of these speculations is
probably nearest the mark. For the
songs that are sung are always concert-room songs, and the manner ol
their singing betrays the practiced
professional. And although Somewhat
less melodramatic tban the others,
this theory does nothing to reduce
the affair's intrinsic romance. For it��
intrinsic romance is due to just that
concert-room quality in the singing,

Northwestern and two or three of the
other English companies have been
constructed at the companies' own expense. They then remain the railway's property, the members of the
royal family paying their (ares like
ordinary passengers, with merely the
usual charge for a special train. The
most elaborate precautions are taken
jto insure the safety of the King's
train, a pilot engine running fifteen

Decadence    of    Shipbuilding    Makes
8,000  Man   Idle.
The distress in Sunderland, England, at the present time has been
unequaled for a generation. Within
the limits of the Parliamentary division close on 8,000 men are out of
work. Many are literally starving
and are going for days without food.
Babies are born in stripped rooms,
where the mother's only bed is the
floor. There is hunger here, grim
gaunt, and acute.
The streets of the borough are
thronged all day with groups of idle
mechanics and laborers, men with
pinched faces, who lounge along sucking empty pipes. Many shipyards
are cloBed, and still more make a
mere pretence of keeping open. The
workhouse is crammed. Statistics tell
something of the extent of the distress.
The unemployed in those unions on
the Wear have risen from 6.1 per cent,
a year ago to 22.4 per cent. Nearly
2.300 unemployed have registered their
names at the offices of the distress
committee, and hundreds more come
eoch day. These are only a part,
for most skilled men do not register.
The secretary of the distress committee estimates tne total out of work
at 8,000. Among the boilermakers
alone 1,500 are idle. For each idle
boilermaker three laborers lose work.
Nearly 50 per cent, of the men in the
building trades are out. One firm
thnt paid $15,000 n week in wages in
June is paying nbout $1,500 now. The
Co-operative Society at the end ol
September had improved ita last
year's trading account by $8,000. Today that improvement is turned into
a decline ol $10,000.
Sunderland depends almost nolely
on shipbuilding. The narrow and
deep channel of the Wear, full oi
shipping, edged with lactones, and
bneked by sharp-rising sideB, covered
with smoke-stained houses, usually
presents one of the busiest industrial
pictures to be seen in England. Today giant chimney after giant chimney stands like a dead thing against
lho sky, no smoke coming from the
chimneys. The gates of many works
are shut. ,
The, one reason for the distress here
Ks the amazing decline in shipbuilding. This iB attributable to many
causes, mainly the high price of coal
and steel nnd overproduction. Some
blame the raising of the Plimsoll line
as a contributory  cause.
In the working clasB suburb of
Soutbwick are many heartrending and
tragic examples of the acuteness of
thv misery and of the heroism with
which the people are bearing it. In
this district scores nnd hundreds of
children are going to school either
shoeless or with boots that afford no
protection Irom the cold, rain, and
snow. Miiny hundreds obtain practically no food but the free meals at
the schools. At one school alone the
head teachers said that fully a hundred of their scholars had gone one
day dinnerless and would remain
without bite or sup until the next
The workingmen who are able do
everything possible to help. Children whose parents are in work take
hungry school lellows home to share
half tlieir dinner. Mothers search
out their spare clothes for neighbors.
The colliers at Castletown are sending
a weekly trolley oi lood, the miners
wives clearing their own cupboards
to help  the hungry  mites.
"Our greot need is boots," said the
head mistress of the High Southwick
council school. "Large numbers of
children are Buffering greatly from
lack of these.
"The distress ia in some' cases too
terrible to contemplate. One morning,
lor instance, I noticed one girl of 7
at breakfast. It was plain that she
had nothing to eat since school broke
up on Friday. She was trembling
violently, and nt first could not take
anything. At lust we got her to swallow a spoonful or two of cocoa to
give her strength to eat."
Tl��e local authorities at Sunderland,
led by the mayor, are doing much to
meet the distress, but their resources
aro wholly unequal to the exceptional
situation. There is need lor active
help from the local Government
Board and from private charity in
other parts. If Sunderland can tide
over between now and January the
worst will then probably be ended.

Overcome  Rheumatism
There is so much Rheumatism here
now that the following advice by an
eminent authority, who writes for
readers of a large Montreal daily paper, will be highly appreciated by
those who suffer:
Get from any good pharmacy one-
half ounce Fluid Extract Dandelion,
one ounce Compound Kargon, three
ounces of Compound Syrup of Sarsa-
parilla. Shake these well in a bottle
and take in teaspoonful doses after
each meal and at bedtime; also drink
plenty oi good water.
It is claimed that there are lew victims of this dread nnd torturous disease who will fail to find ready relief
in this simple home-made mixture,
and in most cases a permanent cure
is the result.
This simple recipe is said to strengthen and cleanse the eliminative tissues of the Kidneys so that they can
filter and strain from the blood and
system, the poisons, acids, and waste
matter, whicli cause not only Rheumatism, but numerous other diseases.
Every man or womnn here who feels
that their kidneys are not healthy
and active, or who suffer from any
urinary trouble whatever, should not
hesitate to make up this mixture, as
it is certain to do much good, and
may save you from much misery nnd
suffering after a while.

Electric Bulbs In High Places.
A good deal of curiosity is occasioned when visitors to a very high
room or auditorium wonder how it is
fiossible to reach the incandescent
amps when they burn out. The explanation is the use of a long jointed
fiole, which can be extended to a great
ength. At the upper end of the pole
is a holder, consisting of wire fingers,
which open by pulling a string and
close tightly around the bulb by means
of springs the moment the cord is released. When the bulb is thus gripped the lamp man turns the pole and
unscrews the lamp.

Wealth Thrown Away by Bone Hunters of Kansas Prairies.
Though comparatively few people
know it, there was a day when Seneca
street, on the west side, was paved
with buffalo skulls and horns, and
many a horse has been snagged by
the crooked horns which stuck up
through the road in muddy times,
says the Wichita correspondent of the
Topeka Capital. For a long time in
an early day all travelers by wagon
to the west avoided this street on this
In the light of subsequent values
this was the most expensive pavement
on earth. A pair of buffalo horns and
the bead of an animal of that breed
will easily bring $400. Thousands of
them were thrown away in an early
day, and it happened that Seneca
street was the dumping ground for
When the first settlers struck this
part of the country farming was virtually impossible, and mighty little
of it was done at the start. One ol
the first things the newcomer learned
was that he could sell buffalo bones
in Wichita, and as the prairiea were
covered with them he loaded up his
wagon with the only crop in sight
and drove in.   Everybody did it.
When Senator Hemenway, of Indiana, who had a claim in Harpe-
County in those days, begins to talk
about his Kansas experience, the first
thing he recounts is that he hauled
buffalo bones to Wichita. Nearly all
the newcomers believed they could
sell skull and horns, too, so they
brought them along with the rest of
the bones. But there were no market
quotations on skulls and horns, and
the city authorities made the newcomers take them out ol town on
their return trips. Some one started
dumping at Seneca street, then a
country road and section line, and
everybody lollowed his example.
It is a singular thing, but no old
settler seems to remember what was
given for a load of buffalo bones in
those days. About the only man who
seemed to put*!*, value on the skull
nnd horns at that date was Father
Bliss, an ancient character who lived
in a queer little house which stood on
the corner of First and Main streets.
A peculiarity of the house was that it
had a curved roof like a houseboat,
Father Bliss had a weakness for collecting the larger buffalo heads and
piling them on his roof, much to the
amusement of the citizens.
The buffalo bones were collected
here trVid shipped by the ton to New
England and made into buttons and
like articles. This trade followed the
heavy transactions in hides and robes
which wiped out the American bison.
It was a commercialism which took
everything, even his bones, for profit,
but, stupid as commercialism usually
is, threw away the heads, which are
now the most valuable.
Stupid Generosity.
Ability may have its limitations, but
stupidity is not thus handicapped,
says someone. Just listen to this.
One ol the office men. at the Mission
Press in Rangoon, a Hindoo, is frequently sent to the postoffice with
money to be sent away by money order, and not long since had his pocket relieved of 400 rupees in paper
money, which he was careless enough
t) leave temptingly peeping out of the
top of his jacket pocket. Of course,
he had to make good the loss due to
his carelessness. Just about that time
came the failure of the private banking firm of Arbuthnot & Co., in Madras, and this man's relatives lost very
heavily. Misfortune seems to know
how to "bunch his hits."
Now all of this led a goodly number of his fellow-employes in the
press to club together and help theirf
unfortunate fellow-countryman. How
beautiful is generous sympathy I The
superintendent was asked to approve,
anrj did so heartily. Generous were
the responses, and 10 gold sovereigns
and more were the result. Of course
ho wbb rejoiced when they gave them
t.i him I Yes, and no. Two of the
leaders wanted the money to be given
to him at -rice, but the men who actually handlel the cash said that it
is not seemly to give a man money,
and so they had two gold bangles
made ol the coins, and gave tbe
bangles to him to wear I
What will the recipient debtor do
with his bangles? He can wear them
and look at them, but as gifts he may
not sell them and pay hiB debts. He
may mortgage them to strangers and
pay his debts to his friends, and then
pay interest on his mortgage till he
has paid twice over for the bangles,
and still not have them to enjoy. The
curse ol all India is its recklessness in
finance, its stupidity in all questions
where money is concerned.
Queer Animals jf ths Arctic.
That there are strange animals in
the Arctic goes without saying, and
amongst the most singular yet discovered are the musk oxen of extreme
northern Greenland, beyond the almost impassable ice-cap, which has
only been traversed by Peary and by
Nansen. The musk ox itself is common enough in North America, the
curious thing is how herds of them
should be found in an apparently inaccessible situation, where they could
not survive the winter, and Irom
which there is no known outlet by
which they might by migration escape
the severity of that season. Similarly,
some years ago, a daring explorer
penetrated 6,000 miles beyond civilization to tlie verge of the Siberian
Arctic in the Lena area, and there
found, of all things, a sheep of gigantic size, previously unknown to science. That Uie Arctic holds more
curious creatures still iB undoubted,
and accounts of these, however fanciful, will continue to attract men to
the Fiozen North until all its strange
things are discovered.

A  Fine   New  Year's  Gift
(From The Montreal Daily Witness.)
One of the best New Year's gilts
that Canada can receive is the announcement that the Canadian Pacific Railway is about to increase its
capital by $28,320,000. At the head
of the Canadian Pacific are not only
many of the ablest men of the country, but, because of the vast enterprise they own and administer on the
land and rivers, the lakes and the
oceans, men exceptionally in a position to judge the likely course of future events. In such circumstances,
the words of Sir Thomas Shaugh-
nessy, president of the company,
speaking for the board of directors,
are most convincing. The d'rectors
'are convinced that Canada will con-
'tinue to progress, and that if there
'bo nny temporary set-back resulting
'from financial conditions in other
'pints of the world, it will prove com-
'parntively unimportant,' Therefore
it is held to be vitnlly important that
the Canadian Pacific should proceed
without cessation in the course adopted some years ago, of adding to the
railway's facilities in every direction
so ns to he 'prepared to cope with the
'very largely increased traffic sure to
'be thrown on your lines.' Such language is indeed inspiring, and will
restore confidence and buoyancy to
those who were inclined, to' be mildly
pessimistic as to the immediate future, even so far ns Canada was concerned. As the "Witness" has persistently reiterated and has shown
abundantly by facts and figures, there
never hns been any reason to fear any*
general or prolonged contraction of
business in this country and the action of the Canadian Pacific Railway
goes to show that by springtime
everything should bo in full swing
again. The railway, at least, deserves
our thanks at this time for the expression of its well-founded confidence,"
a confidence that not only covers this
country, but extends to Europe, where
most of its securities outside of Canada are held. Indeed, its confidence
that its securities will find an advantageous market at this time, is the
moat cheering financial feature of
many months.
London's Cannibal   Birds
For years past a hollow elm in Kensington Gardens has been occupied
every winter by a pair of brown owls,
which arrive and leave at about the
same time as the black-headed gulls.
They feed on tlie London sparrows, as
is plainly shown by tlie relics of the
feast at the foot of the tree, and doubtless they find it an easier way of getting their living to snatch up the incautious sparrow as he sits at.roost
thnn to hunt every winter in the open
country for birds concealed in the
thicket and for field mice, which in
Irosty weather are generally safely
asleep. Besides such regular visitors
as gulls, owls, and carrion crows,
there are many other birds which
wnnder into London during spells of
hard weather and vanish again in the
thaw.���London Globe.

Sathering Place ol Red Men For Various  Expeditions.
Young as Manitoba is, its first settlement, like that of the great centreB
il government, trade and commerce in
lhe world's history, is wrapped in
Tradition tells that in the long ago
before the white man came to trade
throughout and subsequently occupy
the fertile valleys of the great rivers
of tbe enstern prairies of Prince Rupert's Land, the confluence of the
Red and Assiniboine rivers wns a
point of meeting, a gathering place
of the red man at certain times lor
Expeditions of war or peace.
The first white man who had look-
id upon the site of the city of Winnipeg was a native-born Canndinn,
Pierre Goultier de Varennes, afterwards Sieur de la Verandrye, who,
with five of his men, paddled for two
days in their canoes from the mouth
ol the Red river and on Sept. 24,
1738, mnde tlieir camp at the point
where the Assiniboine river enters
the Red and which for years became
known in the geographical descriptions of the West in the earliest days
as The Forks.
"M. de la Marque told me," writes
Verandrye shortly afterwards in October of the same year at Fort de la
Reine, near the site of the present
town of Portage la Prairie, where his
small expeditionary force had gone
by wny of the Assiniboine river, "he
had brought M. de Lonniere to the
Forks with two canoes to build a
fort there lor the accommodation of
the people of Red river. I approved
of it if the Indians were notified."
Thus wbb built Fort Rouge on the
south bank of the Assiniboinji, the
first tapgible beginning ol the western metropolis of the Dominion of
Canada, in which is now its most
populous and wealthiest suburb.
With tho intrepid and unselfish
spirit of the explorer, Verandrye,
troubled with private business embarrassments and unsupported by the
Governments of France or Quebec,
continued lor several years with his
sons the exploration of the great
Northwest from the valley of the Red
river of tlie north. Lake Manitoba
was discovered and the Great Saskatchewan river and the Rocky Mountains, in 1743, seen lor the first time
by white men. Fort Dauphin was
established on weat side ol Lake
Mnnitoba and at the expanse of the
Saskatchewan, known as Cedar Lake,
Fort Bourbon waa built. In the south,
westerly expedition, the Missouri river was discovered. Pressed by debt,
persecuted by those jealous of hiB
deeds and maligned at Quebec and
in the court of France, Verandrye,
the first to explore, and to some extent, at least, realize the greatness
of what is now Western Canada, received belated and meagre recognition of his great work shortly before
his death, by the gift of the Cross of
the Order of St. Louis and by promotion to a captaincy of Colonial
After the battle of the Plains of Abraham and the fall of Quebec in
1759, and the cession of Canada to
Great Britain, French explorations
practically ceased in the Northwest.
. . . With the ordinance of British
power in Canada came shrewd, enterprising and adventurous merchants
and traders to Quebec and Montreal,
made up of members of Highlnnd
Scotch Jacobite families, prescribed
for participation in the Scottish rebellion of 1745, from the New England colonios, nnd afterwards, from
1778 to 17P*I of Loyalists from the
newly-constituted United States of
America, drawn principally from
those of Scottish birth or descent.
The admixture of daring, adventure,
enterprise and profit in the fur trade
appealed particularly to this large
class that made up the leading spirits
of the dominant party in the newly
acquired colony of Great Britain, and
through them the waning trade ot '.he
Far- j West was revived.���-*TTinnipe^
