Ingnlls ou the zinc resources of the Slo
''can. The'data contained therein, is
solid and reliable fact, and we recommend, the report to the careful perusal
of capitalists desiring to know more ol
the lemuii e�� of the Slo an. The fa

This property, owned by tlie Byron
N. 'White Company (Foreign), consists
of 18 mining claims, 460 acres, situated
near Sandon. The Slocan Star, the
onjy.developed vein on the property,
was ditcoveeed in October, 1891. It has
beeli operated for si'ver lead ever s'nee
nud for zinc blende during the last two
years. _
The ni'ne has been opened by 4 crosscut tin nels varying in length from CO
feet in No. 2 to 860 feet in No 6, while
a (-till deeper tunnel is contemplated
The drif s on the vein aggregate 8,889
line.il feet, with 8,107 feet of raises and
winzes. The vein varies in width from
a mere clay gouge up to a width of 40
feet and Ie said to have contained pay
ore for the gieater width in some of the
shnllow workings. The vertical depth
fiom the outcrop lo the lowest workings on the vein in 625 feet.
The Slocan Star lias produced 84 000
toes of lead ore and 4,188 toim of zinc
blende, the aggregate value of which
amounted to ?8.COO,000, from which
1)667,600 wns [ad in dividends, or
18.02 percent.
Tho mill has lately been remodeled
for the saving of zinc ore, and appears
fairly complete in all particulate. It is
oper-atid by a watc r wheel which develops 75 to 80 h.p., from a fall of 470
feel. The dbcharge waler from the
wheel situated at the top of the mill
supplies the full amount for tie jigs
and tables used in concentrating the
ore. Two flumes supply the wheel,
that from Sandon cretk givrs water
enough for 5" months, commencing
about the middle of April. A much
longer Hume runs to Cody and is used
when the supply fulls short. The mill
hns also a steam plant. It is at present
idle, and, I am infoimed, will not start
up before spring. The litigation in
which this property is involved is said
to bfe the piinciple cause of the shutdown.
The mill is located on the hillside
and connected with No. 6 tunnel by a
gravity eurface-lram which delivers the
ore in the mill bins al 4cenls per ton.
The machinery consists of a 9 by 15 inch
Blake crusher, 3 rolls 14 by 20 inch
and one 12 by 80 inch, 6 four compartment jigs, 2 three compartmerit and 4
two compartment, 0 hydraulic Bizers,
4 Wilfiey tables and 4 Frue vanners,
Tho general ore treatment can be
clearly followed  on   the (excellent flow
sheet compiled by Mr. W. F. Robert
son, Provincial Mineralogist. (Plate
The plant has a capacity of 5 tons per
hour, cost $40,000 and represents about
the best class of concentrating works at
Bandon, It waa built in ... , ni ,c-
modeled for zinc recovery in 1904. The
operating coat is about 58 cents per ton,
The mine is situated on a steep mountain side, in the western part of which
a very large granitic mass, or stock,
occurs which has hnd considerable influence on the formation of the vein
fissures, Tlieienrealsonumerous smaller dikes, in all probability branches
from Ihe main stock, which are intersected by the vein in various places
throughout the workings. West of the
shaft on No. 5 level, the vein is diverged by the main porphyry stock,
which it courses round at a distance ol
from 2 to CO feet, and passing round
the western end of tbe stack resumes
its general direction making large ore
deposits, but fiom a point 300 feet
west ol the shaft until it reaches lhe
western side of the stock, the vein or
veins contain but little ore. This is
one of the disputed points, on which
it must be distinctly understood Ihat
I pass no opinion whatever, lhe plaintiffs in the hgilation claiming that the
Star vein is cut off Immediately cast of
tho shaft. The Star vein outcrops very
prominently around No. 2 tunnel, and
slightly west of it a spur from the main
vein is exposed on Ilie trail for a width
of 5% feet, 4 feet of which ia good zinc
unci iron ore. Simple No. 15 gave:
silver 2.2 ozs., lead 1.0 p.c., zinc 29 p.c.
Further westerly the outcrop of the
main vein ran be seen In two or three
places adjacent to the trail, exposing a
wide outcrop (including a elate horse)
showing zinc and carbonate of iron with
galena. Considerable surface gophering has been conducted around this
place in search of pockets of gilena,
while east of No. 2 level or cross-cut,
the vein was quarried out on surface
and the workings are now caved. Tunnel No. 1, I waa informed, ia completely worked out, caved and abandoned.
Tunnel No. 3 intersects the vein
practically at the east end of a large
borse, or the point where two branches
ol the veins meet. Fust of the junction
the vein has a bearing ol north 50 degrees eatvt, with a dip into the mountain
of 50 degrees. The stope immediately
in front of the tunnel is 20 feet wide
and comes to a point nbout 70 feet
easterly. I went down nwinze through
(his stope to an intermediate level 60
feet vertically below tunnel No. 3, and
sampled a body of zinc ore exposed by
a cross-cut 16 feet into tlie footwall, including 4 feet of quartz nnd slale in the
center. This footwall lena is good concentrating   ore,   but  rather    eilicious.
Tlie follow ing zinc shipments made
during 1905 are remarkable for their
uniformly high silver contents:���
Zinc shipments from the Byron N. White Co. of Snndon, B. C, to the United
States Zinc Co. of Pueblo.    Returns made from Denver.

Mrs. Tingnll ia a victim of grip, but
she is progressing favorably.
Miss May Bourne is around again
aller a severe attack of grip.
From infoimnlion to hand it ia now
known that the Alps and Alturas property will be worked extensively as
soon as the snow goes. The antimony
showing at th's property is conceded by
experts lo be by far the finest ever discovered.
There are sixteen men now working
at the Lone Bachelor. Ar.oilier car of
high-grade ore was brought down for
shipment this week.
Poker red hot was the chief social
function of the week.
Jim Ryan waa down fiom the Evening War on Tuesday. Jim is working
on his lonesome at this properly. He
repoi ts lots of ore in sight and that sup-
pin^ will be packed up as soon as the
crusl bears.

Angus Cameron is superintendent at

Geo. White left on Monday for a vialt
to the Boundary country.
Scottiu Wilson hns returned from the
coast. He has also been in the Lardeau
for a considerable time sharpening
steel, but evidently his hand has lost
its cunning in handling the ribbons,
for one day this week he atartod out
with Harry Lowe's fast maie and stylish cutter to give the girls a treat. But
the mare has no use for unkilted Scotch
dudes, anyway, eo it jumped ita tracts
and dumped our hero in a convenient
soft puddle. The mare returned home
alone���so did Scottie.
Soveral of our city fathers, headed by
Mayor Cory, etarted to make the trip to
New Denver on Monday night on "J.A.
Macdonald's palace car." But it was
found that some of the heavy snow-
flakes which fell during the " future
premier's," memorable ride on the car
had completely bent the axle and
hoodoeeT the contraption generally.
The trip was postponed.

Our new member tells a good story
on himself which is worth relating.
During the last two weeks nf the recent
strenuous campaign he was necessarily
absent from hia hearth and home a
great deal, and his little 3,'cj year old
daughter whilat pining for a hug from
the "lost" daddy, evidently had her
suspicions that he was on a rampage.
On the eve of the election lie was iu lhe
boBom of his family once again snatch*
ing a hurried meal, when the little tot
looked up from her plate with eyes
which (-listened with suspicion and
conviction, while sho remarked in n
voice which left no loop-hole for equivocation : "Bill? Whv don't you stop
There are eome sports in Kaslo who
as events have turned out are to be
classified aa anything but dead game.
On a past occasion when Sandon could
reasonably expeel n reciprocation of
friendly rivalry on the part of Kaslo
the crowd of competitors failed to put
in an appearance nt the twelfth hour
although extensively advertised. Wo
allude to the hoae reel race of 1905.
And now the Bandon hockey club mein-
bera have a email regard for the punk
spirit of Kaslo'a puck chasers. The
facta are these. A chulle-gu wns sent
from the home club t�� Kaslo, giving the
latter the choice of Ice and dale. The
Kaslo players accepted the challenge
and fixed Saturday 16th for the game to
be played at Kaslo. Accordingly a
team was got together at this end, and
as most of the play era are miners they
hael to make arrangements for a two or
three days,' lay off. On Saturday morning a te'egrani from Kaslo postponed
the meeting until Monday night, The
boya accepted and loafed around waiting for Monday. On Monday a hill'
sized contingent turned up nt the Reco
to accompany tbo team, but a message
was received from Kaslo which sated
that ice there was too soft to permit of
pliy and the proposed game was thee-
fore abandoned. Tlu* rumor then vent
the rounds that the roa-on n'signed
for abandonment was anything butt'tie
and that cold feet and no sure tiii<g
waa more like tho real state of affairs.
However, ��e hare lincc learned from
Knalo through meiilirvs who made it
their business to find out, that the
Knalo ice waa in good cemdith n on
Monday night. It is obvious, then, that
that the game they play at Kcslo isn't
hockey. It wTmld have been spoit-
manlike for the Kaslo team to wire up:
"Team too wenk here; don't come," or
if tho Ice was as they suggested : "Ice
bad here; bow'a yeeur's ? Shall we come
up?. Not to be daunted, however, the
Sandon boya got together and the out-
coino waa that a Kaslo man volunteered
to place a further challe nge 111 tbe hand*
of a responsible person in that citv who
would in turn  aee

many of them would submit to thecas-

Mis* Cunning and Master Robert redes irons to secure upon our'owii terms turned from Spokane on Wednesday
a large advertising contract wi'b us for nwht,
a year. One of the inducements offeied
to buyers is that the firm wi 1 pay the
freight on large or small quantities to
any railway station in Britisli Columbia.
Now, we ask every retail man in Ihe
Slocan to realize what it would mean to
him if we accepted tho contract and
hia customers look advantage of the
templing offer. This is a coni|clitive
age, and the average resident It not as
loyal to his home merchant as tho
average editor is. He makes sacrifices
repeatedly of a substantia monetary
nature which the world knows nothing
ol. And for this loyalty what do we
get in return. From several whole-
souled merchants in the Slocan we receive n pleasing recognition for our
efforts to boost Ilie country and act
loyally, but thero are others who have
not turned a cent our way either with
job, sub. or ad. Bince wo started. If
every merchant figured the thing out
unselfishly he would be convinced we
are not getting a fair shake, and if he
is honest lie will cease sending Ills job

advertise in the only newspaper which
voices the advantages of the country.
We have sacrificed a big bunch ol
money this week in turning down the
big advertisement we mentioned above,
and we await a reciprocation on tl e
part of our merchants for our loyalty to
thorn. Readers of Ihe Review, we feel
sure, will appreciate the stand taken by
the editor under lhe circumstances,

Referring   to  that hockey challenge,
the   Koolenain   has   tho   following   to
offer: " Tho editor received a challenge
fiom the Sandon Hockey Club on Wed*
Ihat   it reached the! nesluy norninu for our puck chasers to
interested party. In the communication which embodied ihe Challenge il
was pointed out that enquiries had been
made as to a special train to bring the
Kaslo players to Snndon and take them
back the same night. It nl-'O offered
to defray the expenses of the team no
matter what arrangements they made.
The challenge called for the game to ho
playel the follow ing night (Wednesday).
That challenge has never been acknowledged.   There is a reason.

A political incident of the small
tatoe   order   occured    at Ottawa
other day, which might be pasted over
with a laugh but  for ihe  unpleasant
sidelight it sheds  on the character   of
he Premier,   and the   peanut  polilicnl
docttine which he made it the occasion
to enunciate.   A deputation of farmers
from  Montmagny,   Quebec,   waitid on
Sir Wilfrid  to  request some favor  for
their constituency, and were introduced
by Mr. Armand  Lavergne,  member for
their Riding.   Mr. Lavergne is a young
Liberal ol considerable force and ability
He is not altogsiher satisfied with some
recent proceedings of tho government,
and has been criticising   the North   At* j
lantic Trading   Company   and   other)
things, with  a degree of freedom  that < shape
has proved unpalateable to the Premier.
Sir Wilfrid  opened out on  him in presence of the deputation, and gave  him
a  dressing  down  which  indicated the
extreme pleasure it  would have given
him to kfck the offending member out
of the room if he  were able.   It links
small for tbe Premier cf Canada.   Yet
it contains a statement of importance
in  political    practise.    Plainly it   lays
down the doctrine that a member elected to support  the government must
support   it in  nil  things,  and  cannot
criticise any  of its proceedings on pain
of losing the patronage of his riding.
Tliis holds the  whip over the Liberal
inembsra in   a most unplesaant way,
and must certainly prove especialTJWIis-
cross slickH with those of lhe Silver
City Iht* same night. Unfortunately
the lime given was too short and ihe dry
too wet to meet wilh any ei.e itirigcuieiit
in the way of a-cip'anc*. Although
Kaslo has no hockey team, we believe
enough Kknters and shinney players
could be got together to go up and
make things interesting forlhe Sandon-
itea. However, as our ice is about " all
in " for the season, and Saudon's will
holel oot for two months yet, possibly a
game can be arranged."
Now, 'Brer Potter, you are wrong
when yon say yon received the challenge on Wednesday. It wns Tuesday
���with apologies for diflering���and if
you cure to icfresh your memory by
glancing over the cpetle you will
seo ihat it ca'leil for tlie game to le

But we wouldn't do it; there's nothing
to it. Whip 'em into line and roast

The coach brouglTt up In front of a
roadside Inn. While some of the men
were watering tbe horses others gatb
ered  about Its open window.   A eon-
"Aunt Fanny, will you be careful t"
versatlon In a tongue utterly incomprehensible to Beverly took place between
Baldos and bis followers. The latter
seemed to be disturbed about something, and there wus no mistaking the
solicitous air with which they regarded their leader. The pseudo princess
was patient as long as possible and
then broke into the discuss ion.
"What do they want?" she demanded In English.
"They are asking for Instructions,"
he answered.
"Instruct them to do as I bid," she
said. "Tell them to hurry along and
get you a doctor; that's all."
'Evidently his friends were of the
same opinion, for after a long harangue
In which he was obdurate to tbe lest
they left the carriage, and he sank
back wltb a groan of dejection.
"What Is it?" sbe anxiously demanded.
"They also insist that I shall go to a
surgeon," be said hopelessly. His eyes
were moist, and he could not meet ber
gaze. Sbe was full of exultation.
"They have advised me to put myself
under your protection, shameless es
that may seem to a man. You and you
alone have the power to protect me if
1 pass beyond tbe walls of Ganlook."
"1?" she cried, all a-flutter.
"I could not thrust my bead Into the
Jaws of death unless the princess of
Graustark were there to stay their
fury. Your royal hand alone can turn
aside the inevitable. Alas, 1 am helpless and know not what to do.'"
Beverly Calhoun sat very straight and
silent beside the misguided Baldos.
After all, It was not within ber power
to protect him. She,was uot the princess, and sbe bad absolutely no Influence In Ganlook. The authorities there
could not be deceived as had been these
Ignorant men of the bills. If sbe led
him into the city It was decidedly probable tbat sbe might be taking bim to
his death. Sbe could only petition, not
command. Once at Yetive's side sbe
was confident she could save the man
wbo bad done so much for her, hut
Ganlook was many miles from Edelweiss, and there yvus uo assurance that
Intervention could be obtained in time.
On tbe other band, if be went buck to tbe
hills be was likely to die of the poisonous fever. Beverly was in it most unhappy state of mind. If she confessed
to bim tbut she was not the princess
he would refuse to enter tho gates of
Ganlook, and be perfectly Justified in
doing so.
"But If I should fall?" she asked at
last, a shiver rushing over ber and
leaving ber cold with dread.
"You are tbe only hope, your highness. You had better say farewell to
Baldos and let him again seek tbe
friendly valley," said he wearily. "We
can go no farther. The soldiers must
be near, your highness. It means capture If we go on. I cannot expose my
friends to the dangers. Let me be put
down here and do you drive on to
Bafety. I shall fare much better than
you think, for I am young und strong
"No! I'll risk It!" she cried. "You
must go into the city. Tell them so,
snd sny that I will protect you with my
own life end honor."
Fever made bim submissive. Her
eyes gave bim confidence. Her voice
soothed bis fears, if he possessed them.
Leaning from the window be called
bis men togetfcer. Beverly looked on
la wonder as these strange men bade
farewell to their leader. Many of them
were weeping, and most of them kissed
his band. There were broken sentences, tear choked promises, anxious
Inquiries, and the parting was over.
"Where are they going?" Beverly
whispered as tbey moved away In tbe
"Back into the mountains to starve,
poor fellows. God be kind to them,
God be good to them," he half sobbed,
his chin dropping to bis breast. He
.was trembling like a leaf.
"Starve?" sbe whispered. "Have they
no money?"
"We are penniless," came In muffled
tones from the stricken leader.
Beverly leaned from the window and
called to the departing ones. Ravone
and one other reluctantly approached.
Without a word she opened a small
traveling bag and drew forth a heavy
purse. This sbe pressed Into the band
of the student. It was filled wltb
Graustark gavvos, for which she bad
exchanged American gold in Russia.
"God be with , m!" she fervently
���cried. He kissed her hand, and the
two stood aside to let tbe coach roll
on Into the dusky shadows that separated them frpm, the gates of Gan-
���tooc, oia laaruz stvi artv.-e*, tne only
one of the company left to serve bis
| leader to the very end.
"Well, we have left them," muttered
Baldos as though to himself. "I may
never see them again���never see them
agalu.   And bow true they have beeu!"
"1 shall seud for them the moment
I get to (Jaulook, and I'll promise pardons for them all!" she cried rashly in
her compassion.
"No," be exclaimed fiercely; "you are
uot to disturb them. Better that tbey
should starve."     i
Beverly wus sufficiently subdued. As
they drew nearer tbe city gates her
heart begun to fall ber. This man's
life was in ber weak, Incapable bauds*
nud the time was uearlug when she
must stand between him und disaster.
"Where ure these vaunted soldiers of
yours?" he suddenly asked, Intlutte
Irony In his voice.
"My soldiers?" she said faintly.
"Isn't It rather unusual that lu time
of trouble nnd uncertainly we should
be able to approach within a mile of
one of your most Important cities without even so much as seeing a soldier
of Graustark?"
Sbe felt tbut he was scoffing, but tt
mattered little to her.
"It Is a bit odd, Isn't It?" she agreed.
"Worse than thut, your highness."
"I shall speak to Daugloss about It."
she suld serenely, and he looked up In
new surprise. Truly she was an extraordinary princess.
Fully three quarters of an hour passed before the couch was checked. Beverly, looking from tho windows, bad
seen the lighted windows of cottages
growing closer und closer together.
The burking of roadside dogs was tbe
only sound tbut could be heard above
the ruttle of the wheels. It wus too
dark Inside the couch to see the face
of the man beside her, but something
told her that he was staring intently
Into the night, alert aud anxious. The
responsibility of ber position swooped
down upou ber like an avalanche as
she thought of what the next few minutes were to bring forth. It was the
sudden stopping of the coach and tbe
sharp commands from the outside thnt
told her probation was at an end. Sbe
could no longer speculate; It was high
time to set.
"The outpost," come from Baldos, in
strained tones.
"Perhaps they won't know us���you, I
mean," she whispered.
"Baron Dangloss knows everybody."
he replied bltterlv
"What a horrid old busybody he"���
she started to say, but thought better
of IL
A couple of lanterns Sashed at the
window, almost blinding her. Aunt
Fanny groaned audibly, but tbe figure
of Baldos seemed to stiffen with defiance. Uniformed men peered Into tbe
luterolr with more rudeness and curiosity than seemed respectful to a princess, to say the least. They saw a pretty, pleading face, with wide gray eyes
and parted lips, but tbey did not bow
in humble submission, aa Baldos had
expected. One of the men, evidently In
command, addressed Beverly in rough
but polite tones. It was a question
that be asked, she knew, but she could
not answer him, for sbe could not understand him.
"What do you want?" she put in
English, with a creditable display of
"He does not speak English, your
highness," volunteered Baldos, in a
voice so well disguised that It startled
ber. The officer was staring blankly at
"Every officer in my army should
and must learn to speak English," she
said, at ber wits' end. "I decline to
be questioned by the fellow. Will you
talk to him in my stead?"
"1, your highness?" he cried In dismay.
"Yes. Tell him who wo are and ask
where the hospital Is," sbe murmured,
sinking back with tbe air of a queen,
but with the inward feeling that all
was lost.
"But I don't speak your language
well," he protested.
"You speak It beautifully," sbe said.
Baldos leaned forward painfully and
spoke to tbe officer In the Graustark
"Dou't you know your princess?" he
demanded s trifle harshly. Tbe man's
eyes flew wide open lu an instant and
his Jaw dropped.
"The���tbe princess?" he gasped.
"Don't stare like that, sir. Direct us
to the main gate at once, or you will
have cause io regret your slowness."
"But the princess wus���Is coming by
tbe northern paaa," mumbled the man.
"The guard has gone out to meet ber
and"��� Baldos cut bim off shortly wltb
tbe Information that the princess, as
hs could see, had come by the lower
pass and that sbe was eager to reach
a resting place at once. The convincing tone of the speaker and the regal
Indifference of tbe lady had full effect
upon tbe officer, wbo hud never seen
her highness. He fell back with r,
deep obeisance and gave a few bewildered commands to his men. The
coach moved off, attended by a party
of foot soldiers, and Beverly breathed
her first sigh of relief.
"You did It beautifully," she whispered to Baldos, and he was considerably puzzled by tbe ardor of her
praise. "Where are we going now?"
sbe asked.
"Into the city, your highness," he answered. It was beginning to dawn
upon him thai she was amazingly Ignorant and Inconsequential for one
wbo enjoyed the right to command
these common soldiers. Her old trepidation returned with this brief answer. Something told her that he was
beginning to mistrust her at last. After all, It meant everything to him and
so little to ber.
When the coach halted before the
city gates she was in a dire state of
unhcinplngss),     In   the   cjarkness  she
j could le6\ tne reproafcuiui eyes or old
Aunt Fanny searching tor her abandoned conscience.
"Ask If Baron Dangloss Is In Gan-
: look, and, If he is, command them to
] take me to him Immediately," she
! whispered to Baldos, a sudden lnsplra-
| tion seizing her. She would lay the
j whole matter before the great chief of
| pofiee and trust to fortune. Her hand
i fell impulsively upon his and, to her
| amazement, It wm as cold as ice.
| "What is the matter?" she cried in
| alarm.
I "You trusted me in the wilds, your
highness," be said tensely) "I am trust-
| Ihg you now.'' Before she could reply
i the officer in charge of the Ganlook
gates appeared at tbo coach window,
"there were lights on ell sides. Her
heart sank like lead. It would be a
nfsracle If she passed the gates unrecognized.

In the fixed scale of descent In India

In tho slightest degree change theh
situation. Tbey were horn "unclean:"
their ancestors were "unclean:" theh

To give a few Illustrations from
many, a weaver Is less "unclean" than
a carpenter, a carpenter Is above a
house cleaner, a house cleaner Is above
a street cleaner, and a street cleaner Is
above u pnriah or no caste mail. Even
trade or occupation bus Its exact pliie'i*

the tradesmen and shopkeepers, also
with subdivisions Into classes: above
the tradesmen is tbe useless and now
.almost Idle warrior class; above the
'warriors is the Brahman or priestly
class, and with these grand divisions
the structure of the system Is complete.
Wealth or material situation or success has nothing to do with the caste of
any man. You may hire for your cook
or valet a Brahman of the purest strain
serene, who for weeks before you engaged him may have been on the verge
ef starvation. Tbe meager beggar to
whom you toss alms in the road may
be of a very high caste. Tbe well fed
groom, resplendent in gorgeous livery,
flashing by on a carriage that covers
the beggar with dust, is very likely of
a caste a mile below the beggar. Time
no more than effort can break down
those walls of division. One of tbe
wealthiest and most distinguished families in Calcutta, the famous Tagore
family, lost caste about two centuries
ago. Members of this family have received honor from tbe government,
bave conferred great benefits upon city
and country and bave been noted for
their numerous charities und benefactions. One exerted himself all bis life
to further native education. Another
helped to endow Calcutta university.
A if are enormously rich, and all beai
enviable reputations for goodness, honesty and philanthropy. But the wall of
caste has never fallen for them. They
are still bated and avoided by their
countrymen exactly as they were at
the beginning of their exclusion. In tbe
streets of Calcutta Is many a ragged
artisan that would not sit on tbe same*
bench with a Tagore or touch tbe end
of bis robe.
Pain, suffering, penury, even death
Itself, Is nothing to the Hindoo compared with the loss of caste. Many a
Hindoo that In tbe old days would

History of the  English   Novel.
The genesis of the novel of the social question, of which the labor
and capital novel is one aspect, involves e sketch of the whole history
of the Knglish novel.
Following Sidney's "Arcadia" in
the sixteenth century and Bunyan's
"Pilgrim's Progress" in the seventeenth and "Robinson Crusoe" in
'���lie early eighteenth, we come upon
a new variety of novel���tlie novel
of manners, reflecting the customs
and speecli of the age. Richardson's "Pamela" and "Clarissa Har-
lowe"  lead  the  long train.
Historical fiction swam into our
ken in tiie gallant fleet ol thirty-
two "Waveriey Novels." Here romance and adventure are in full
sail. Occupied with pomp and
pageant, with the purely emotional,
the historical novel of this time allows its teachings to ha merely incidental ; perhaps the* best of ull
ways of teaching, if the people ring
true and tlie situations square with
About tlie beginning of the Victorian era swept in tlie novel of
street ��nd trade and olub���preem-
inately tin* novel of city and town.
Here social  scenes  and  social themes
a re woven  iii  with Btories of home
and  the  common   way;  all   reflecting
ihe* life of this period of England's
greatest  material   prosperity.    Dick*
ns takes for his material the middle"   classes   and   the   off-scoiirings   of
ociely. Thackeray chooses the upper classes and their servants and
hangers-on. In "Hard Times" Dickens  twines   u   story   around   il   philse
of trade-unionism; for labor troubles
were in the air of that day. His
works are crowded with characters.
His exaggerations and sentiineiitiiii-
sion for the multitude hade a deep
sion for the multitude made a deep
impression upon u reading public
that had been accustomed for years
to sorrow only over the woes of
prince and  page.
Thackeray Was not touched by the
wrongs af the common iieople. He
was inclined to sneer at Dickens'
treatment of criminals and incompetents. But he hud a wholesome
contempt for snobbery and injustice, and he helped to brush away
aristocratic pretension with laughter
us Dickens helped wash away injustice   witli   tears.
But it was left to the greatest
woman novelist, George Eliot, to
give the most artistic and the most
searching of the social studies of
the century. With George Eliot a
new strain comes into novel writing. She is not content to merely
tell a story; she seeks for the relation between the life of her characters and the life of humanity. She
builds into fiction the conflicts and
questionings that Mill und Darwin
and Spencer were voicing in economics and science and philosophy.
Evolution, heredity, environment���
tlie new-risen doctrines surging in
the thought of the day���these gave
the sense of social responsibility.
The 'vast sympathy of the author
makes her characters intensely
alive, and holds our interest in
their fortunes. "Felix Holt, the
Radical" is a story involving the
labor movement. One of the
ipeeclies of Felix is so up-to-date

Sheep Can  Be  Made Comfortable A
Very  Little* Cost.
As it is economical on the part a
any owner of any animals to feed wel
during the winter and to keep tin
stock in tlie best condition, it is thi
best plan for him to provide goo<
warm shelter for all his animals. Thli
refers most particularly to a flock o
sheep, says the American Shee)
Breeder. It is commonly thought, ant*
the thought is commonly expressed
that sheep, being provided with i
thick woolly coat in the winter, di
not require any other shelter, than I
board fence and a comfortable yard te
pass the nights in. It is a very com
nion accident for such persons to losi
a few sheep and lambs every wintot
by exposure to cold and neglect. Ani
inals suffer from cold when they an
shivering in an exposed yard on <
cold winter's night quite as much ai
their owners may do under similai
exposure. And it is a waste of money
for food is the same as money to thi

It is quite often thought sufficient
that the sheep were sufficiently pro

exposed to rainstorms which froze thi
fleece on their backs. The truth is thai
the fleece of a sheep should not bi
considered in this part of their man

Ventilation is a very important par
of the management of oil shelters foi

rule should bo to give a square yard
of floor space for every sheep In shedi
or covered yards at the least. This ii
twice as much as the sheep will cov
er, thus leaving half tbe floor for mov*
ing upace. The sheep will habituallj
lie close together, and thus there wil:
be ample room for the wanderers td
move about comfortably. Some of thd
sheep will bunch together, but thil
will be perfectly safe, for sheeo maj
safely crowd together if there Is an*
|de room for all and none pile up or
j the others. The only safe rulo in thi
management of sheep is to whollj
prevent by sufficient precautions anj
risk of panics in the yards or sheds
as may happen by the presence of i
dog in the place. Strange dogs should
always be kevpt (,rom the sheep. Thd
home dog may go anywhere amorij
them with safety, but a strange doj
may cause a panic in which somd
sheep will be lost. Thus the fences ol
the open sheep yards should be wel!

Hurried eating and lack of proper
mastication ut the tood are among
the most common causes of .indigestion, and overeating iB undoubtedly
the beginning of tiouble with tlie
liver  and kidneys.
Kidney disease and rheumatism
are not usually the first indication
of a deranged system, but these
troubles follow unheeded headaches,
constipation  and  bilious  attacks.
Because of that direct and combined action on the liver, kidneys
and bowels, Dr. Chase's Kidney-
Liver Pills are effective in whatever stage of such dreangements
they may be used, except when the
structure of the kidneys has been
tt listed  away  by  Bright's  disease.
What we would emphasize, however, is the advantage of beginning
this treatment nt the first indication
of trouble with the liver. It is
tiie liver which first feels the result
of overeating because of its difficulty
in filtering lhe blood. Keep the
liver right by tlie timely use of
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills and
you not only prevent headaches,
biliousness und constipation, but entirely escape derangements of the
kidneys, which are at once so dreadfully   painful  and   fatal.

story than that in which Hicks, tlie

his joy as the iron pipe broke
through above bis betid, und his
frantic efforts to let the reBcuera
know that it had readied him.
Down this pipe tlie food was passed to him; down this pipe came tbe
tones of a phonograph, set playing
tu bheer him in Ids utter loneliness.
How slowly the time passed may
best be imagined by the simple con;
trivances which Hicks deviced in
order t<> distract his attention, "I
purposely lost my watch," lie says,
".so that 1 might have trouble in
looking for it."
If that supremely realistic touch
were mere invention, it would be a
stroke epiite worthy of Defoe. The
idem ut cheating time by wilfully
losing one'n watch is perfect, it is,
we suppose, Inevitable���espeofallyiti

appear before the public shortly."
Nor can we blame him if lie funis

should be ' exploited for gain.���London Daily Telegraph.

vouched ior this work, which described in detail the homes in Jupiter of Mozart, Zarathustra, Bernard Palissy and others. The houses
were built lightly, and showed in
the style and the material used

the house of the composer of 'The

Platinum  Vanishing.

world's platinum, snys the London
Globe. All the known deposits are
becoming exhausted, and tlie price
is going up to a prohibitive extent.
In 18711 the metal could be bought
for $100 the kilogramme. Four
years later it had doubled; in 1901
it had quadrupled, and today the
price is $1,200 per kilogramme, or
twice the price of gold. Even that
is for crude platinum. The worked
metal is twice as dear again. Considering how many industries arc
now absolutely depending upon platinum, the question of replacing it
by some really efficient alloy or combustion, is acquiring vital importance.

Explanation of the Ancient Board of
Green  Cloth.
With regard to the board of green
cloth it is one of the most ancient
institutions of the English court, is
composed of the lord steward, of the
treasurer, and of the controller of the
household, as well as oi several minor officials, and derives its name from
the green cloth on the table at which
the officials sit on the occasion of
their meetings. It has charge not only
of the accounts and of the victualing
of the royal household, but likewise of
the exercise of a number of legal prerogatives and immunities pertaining
to the residences of the sovereign.
The board of green cloth is, in fact,
the council of the lord high Bteward,
who in ancient days bore the title ol
seneschal, and who, subject of course,
to the sovereign, enjoys jurisdiction,
independent of the ordinary tribunals of the land, over all the inmates
of the royal palaces and royal parks,
and over the people connected therewith. Indeed, the lord steward, in
conjunction with his board of green
cloth, has the rights of life and death
over offenders, and the power of selecting a jury from among the servants of the sovereign.
In these modern times it is doubtful whether the lord high steward
would be willing to exercise his prerogative of sitting in judgment upon
a case of felony, such as, for instance,
a murder committed within the precincts of Buckingham Palace or
Windsor Castle, and he would probably delegate his authority to one of
the judges of the High Court of Justice to deal with tho case. In fact,
he does something of the kind at the
Ascot races. The Ascot race course,
as everybody knows, forms part of
the royal domain of Windsor, and
since it has become so popular as
a race meeting during the Ascot week
in midsummer, it has been found necessary to devise some means of administering summary justice on the
Powers of tho Lord Steward.
Accordingly the lord steward of the
household each year secures the services of the senior police magistrate
of the metropolis for the Ascot week,
and the magistrate in question, by
virtue of the authority delegated to
him by the lord steward, holds court
in his name in a room provided for
the purpose beneath the grandstand
and inflicts penalties on the thieves
and toughs who are brought before
him charged with offenses committed  upon  the  racecourse.
The last occasion on which the lord
steward dealt with a case of homicide was when the mysterious murder
of Senlis, the Swiss valet of the Duke
of Cumberland, afterward first King
of Hanover, took place in St. James'
Palace. The duke was the subject of
such general execration that popular
sentiment did not hesitate to lay the
crime at the door of this son of George
III. But the coroner's jury, recruited
by the lord steward and by the board
of green cloth from among the King's
servants, "absolved the duke of all
responsibility and rendered a verdict I
of murder by unknown persons.
The lord high steward receives his j
charge immediately from the sovereign, and by virtue of his office takes
precedence of all dukes who do not j
happen to be princes of the reigning
house. The immediate direction of
the royal household "below stairs,"
that is, the kitchens, the domestio ser- j
vants, etc., ib in his hands, and in
those of the board of green cloth. He j
and the latter are responsible for the
expenditures and for the supplies. But
virtually hiB authority extends over
the entire court, even the chamber,
the chapel, and the stables. The lord
steward's insignia of office is a white
wand or staff, which he carries In the
presence of the sovereign, but which
on state occasions, when the monarch
is not present, is borne before him by
a footman, bareheaded. On the death
of the sovereign from whom he has
received the white staff he breaks it
over the royal bier at the cIobb of
the obsequies to indicate that his of-
floe has ceased and that there is no
longer any board of green cloth.
Fate of Sunken Ships.
What becomes of the ship that
sinks in midoceanP If it is of wood it
takes in the first place, considerable
tiiie for it to reach the bottom. In a
hundred or more fathoms of water a
quarter of an hour will elapse before
the ship reaches the bottom. It sinks
slowly, and when the bottom Is reached, it falls gently into the soft, cozy
bed, with no crash or breaking.
Of course, if it iB laden with pig
iron or corresponding substances, or
if it is an iron ship, it sinks rapidly
and sometimes strikes the bottom
with such force as to smash in pieces.
Once sunken a ship becomes the prey
of the countless inhabitants of the
They swarm over and through the
great boat and make it their home.
Besides this, they cover every inch ot
the boat with a thick layer of lime.
This takes time, of course, and when
one generation dies another continues
the work, until finally the ship 1b so
laden with heavy incrustations, corals, sponges and barnacles that, if
wood, the oreaking timbers fall apart
and slowly but surely are absorbed in
tlie waste at the sea bottom.

Luxuries of the British Capital In An.
cient Days���The Social Status
of the  Trader.
Not a few interesting things come
out when we study the history of
mediaeval London. Une oi thum is tlie
Bocial status of the trader. Tlie fashionable contempt for his business it
of comparatively recent growth, not
much more than a century old. No
precise date can be given; but in the
earlier part of the* eighteenth century
the feeling on the matter wus not whnl
it became in the nineteenth.
For hundreds of years before then
the connection between the oountrj
and the city, tiie country gentlefolk
and tlie city trader, had been most
intimate. No more striking evidence
of this can be given than tiie analysis
of the origin of tbe 2')3 Lord Mayors
from Henry Fitz-Aylwin down to tlie
year 1633, a period of 210 years. Of
these 166 were country born. When
we consider what the mediaeval village was, how limited was tlie horizon of all but the lord of the manor
or. a knight here and there, it is not
difficult to understand why many
lads of good birth sought the opportunities offered by apprenticeship in
the city. Camden ia quoted to show
that the nobility thought with shame
of the merchant's career. He himself
declared "mercantura non derogat no-
bilitati." These same country lads
supplied the city, as indeed they do
now, with the necessary fresh blood
and energy.
Another important point is the fact
that London was always great as a
distributing not as a manufacturing
centre. And this fact no legislation,
no system of duties could alter. Fraternities of foreign merchants established themselves in their fortified
houses and kept their trade jealously
to themselves. The crown, so long
as it got its tolls and duties, was
content. Now and then, indeed, it endeavored to restrict their increasing
trade, but its ordinances were always
evaded. For London wanted what they
alone could Bupply. It could supply
itself well enough with necessaries,
as tjir Walter Besant says, but neither London nor England has ever
been content with necessaries.
The mediaeval city of 500 years ago
was as full of luxuries as is the city
of to-day���the best shopping place in
northern Europe in the daya of Edward III., as it is in the days of Edward VII. Entire fleets laden with
nothing but wine came to London.
Once or twice there were periods when
a man could "get dead drunk for twopence," aa the fascinating invitation
of a later time put it; but the drink
had by that time been changed from
wine to gin. Mediaeval London had,
indeed, the best of everything, paying
for it all in wooL So Capgrave has
it: "Our enemies laugh at us; they
say: 'Take the ship off your gold noble and imprese a sheep instead.'"
(This was the noble of Edward III.)
Napoleon repeated the taunt, but the
laugh was not in the end with the
foreigner. And how, it may be asked,
did these good things go backward
and forward? Not always securely.
We could not always command the
Channel, though we still claimed the
sovereignty of the seas. In this respect things reached their worst, we
are told, in the 14th century. Foreign
merchants settled in London and
traded. They came from Venice, Rouen, Genoa, Florence, Lombardy, Antwerp and Dantzig. And so the period
was a halcyon time for pirates, for
lords of manors who had foreshores,
for fishermen and for wreckers.���From
The Spectator.
Wolseley's  Dread of Invasion.
Lord Wolseley haa written two letters to Lord WemysB on the possibility of the invasion of England. The
following are some of the most striking passages:
"England can never have an efficient army during peace, and she
must therefore accept the rebuffs and
calamities which are always in store
for the nation that is content to follow the breed of cowards who usually
direct her great affairs.
"The day will come when she will
violently and suddenly lose her former fighting renown to such an unmistakable extent that the plucky
fishwives will march upon Downing
street, and if they can catch its usual inmates, will rend them.
"One party ia as bad as tbe other,
and I hope and pray that when the
national misfortune of a great defeat
at sea overtakes us, followed by the
invasion of England or Ireland���very
possibly the latter ��� that John Bul)
will turn and rend the jawera and
talkers who prevent ub from being
prepared to meet invasion."

It is not Impossible. In fact, it has

changed into caoutchouc. If, then, one
could accelerate and complete the
process the main difficulty would be
overcome, for isoprene can be made
from turpentine.
