The  Improvement   Society took several things in hand this week for whicli
they deserve tho thanks not onlv of the
people of New Denver, but of every resident In tiie district.     Foremost  is the
matter Of protecting tho fi*h in Slocnn
Lake.    This long-deferred action which
ia  to  he   handled   intelligently,   meets
wilh merited approval.   Another matter
i i the petition lo the provincial government asking that  a  Government Land
Ollice   he   established   in   tho   Slocan
riding, and thia 'petition la being signed
by hundreds.   At lho present  time all
land   registration   ia  put  through  the
Kaslo ollico, which is outside tbo Slocan
Electoral   Division  and   a mont inconvenient point t.) conduct business from.
Opposition   is  to   bo   looked  for  from
Kado, but when it is considered  that
thc Kaslo distiict nnd   Slocan  diatrict
are equally entitled  to a Government
Land Ollice, and  that tho  growing importance   of  the   Slocan warrants  the
change, the opposition should magnanimously withdraw,    Wo strongly contend that tho Knslo people would have
reasonable   cause for   kicking il Kaslo
lnnd   affairs   were conducted nt   New
Denver, which is outsido their diatrict,
and so haa Slocan  under existing conditions.
We understand thai a well known
local gentlemen has mado a most gen-
eroua offer to tbo district. Until he
has matured his plana ho desires us to
Biippreaa his niiine, but It is his intention to dr.iw attention to the Ashing of
Sio.'an Lake by offering a 1100 trophy
for tho largest fish taken with rod and
line during thc coming ledBOtt.

"���My seSiiie . tu"" more to himself than to Mrs Noah, while his foot
kicked the fender, and he mentally
compared Lucy and Maddy with each
other, and tried to think that it was
not the result of that comparison,
but rather Mrs. Noah's next remark,
which affected him unpleasantly. The
remark or remarks were as follows:
"Of course she'll make a splendid
woman. Everybody notices her now
for her beauty, and that's why you've
no business to keep her hero where you
see her every day. It's a wrong to
her,  lettin'  yourself  nlone."
Guy looked up, and Mrs. Noah continued :
"I've been a girl myself, and I
know that Maddy can't be treated as
you treat her without its having an
effect. I've no idea thnt it's entered
her head yet, but it will bimeby, and
then  good-by to her happiness."
"For pity's sake, whnt do you mean?
Do not talk to me in riddles. What
have I done to Muddy, or what am I
going to do?"
Guy spoke savagely, nnd bis boots
were in grent dinger of beine burned
as he kicked vigorously against the
fender. Coining nearer to him, and
lowering her voice, Mrs. Noah replied :
"You are going to teach her to love
you, Guy Remington, just as sure as
my name is Noah."
"And is that anything so very bad,
I'd like to know? Most girls do not
find love distasteful," and Guy walked hastily to the window, where he
stood for a moment gazing out upon
the soft April snow which was falling, and feeling anything but satisfied
either with the weather or himself;
then walking back, and taking a seat
before !" i fire, he said: "I understand you now. You would save Maddy Clyde from sorrow, and you are
right. You know more of girls than
I do. She might in time get to���to
���think of me as she ought not. I
never looked upon it in this light before. I've been so happy with her"
���here Guy's voice faltered a little,
but he recovered himself and went on:
"I will tell her about Lucy to-night,
but the sending her away, I can't do
that. Neither will she bo happy to
go back where I took her from, for
though the best of people, they are
not like Maddy, and you know it."
Yea, Mrs. Noah did know it, and
pleased that her boy, as she called
Guy, had shown some signs of penitence and amendment, she said she
did not think it necessary to send
Maddy home; she did not advise it
either. She like the girl, and what
she advised was this, that Guy should
send Maddy and Jessie to boarding
school. Agnes, she knew, would be
willing, and it was the best thing
he could do. Maddy would thus learn
what was expected of a teacher, and
as soon as she graduated, she could
procure some eligible situation, or if
Lucy was there, and desired it, she
could come and stay forever for all
that she cared.
"And during the vacations, where
must she go then?" Guy asked.
"Go where she pleases, of course.
Aa Jessie is so fond of her, and they
are much like Bisters, it will not he
improper for her to come here, as I
see, provided Aeries is here. Her
presence, of course, would make a
difference," Mrs. Noah replied, while
Guy continued:
"I know you nre rieht; thnt is, I
So not wiKh to do Maddy a harm by
placing temptation in her way, neither will I hnve everybody meddling
with my business. I tell you I won't.
I don't mean you, for you hnve a
rieht tQ say what no one else has,"
and he glnnced half angrily at Mrs.
Noah. "Pity if I cnn't take an interest in a girl. b"cause I once injured
her without every old woman in
Christendom thinking she must needs
fall in love with me, and so be ruined
for life. Maddy Clyde has too good
sense for that, or will have when I
tell her abofit Lucy.''
"And you will do so?" Mrs. Noah
"Of course I will, and write to
Lucy, too, telline her bow you talked,
and how I cnre no more for Mnddy
than I do for Jessie."
"And will that be true?" Mrs. Noah
Guy oould not look her fully in the
face then, so he kicked tbe grate until the concussion sent the red-hot
oonls out upon the carpet as be replied :
"True?    Yes.  every  word  of it."
Mrs. Noah noted all this, and thinking:
"I ought to have took him in hand
Jong ago," she came up to hiin and
paid kind'* soothingly: "We shall
all miss y:  I as much as any
one,  but tiiink  it  best  for her
to go to school; and so, nfter tea,
I'll manage to keep Jessie with me,
and send Maddy to you, while you tell
lier about Lucy and the plan."
Guy nodded a little jerking kind
of a nod. in token of his assent, and
then with thnt perversity which
prompts women particularly to press
a subject after enough has been said
upon it, Mrs. Nonh. as she turned to
leave the room, gave vent to the following:
"You know, Guy, as well as I, that
pretty and smart ns she is, Maddy
is really beneath you, nnd no kind of
a match, even il you wasn't as good
as married, which you be." And the
good lady left the room in time to
escape seeing the sparks fly up the
chimney, as Guy now made most vigorous UBe of the poker, and bo did
not finish the scorching process commenced on the end of his boot.
Mrs. Noah's last remark awakened
in Guy a singular train of thought.
Yes, Maddy was his inferior as the
world saw matters, and settling himself in the chair he tried to fancy
what that same world would say if
he should make Maddy his wife. Of
course he had no such intention, he
was just imagining something which
never could posBibly happen, becauae
in the first place he wouldn't marry
Maddy Clyde if he could, and he
couldn't if he would! Still, it waa
not an unpleasant occupation fancying what folks, and especially Agnes,
would say if he did, and so he sat
dreaming about it until the bell rang
for supper, when with a nervous start
he woke from the reverie, and wishing the whole was over, started for
the supper room.
jj_U____x __.__: over, ac! Guy waa back
aganrin^"hnrrrbrary. H*a* TiffoT Hoi slopped as he usually did, to romp with
Jessie or talk to Maddy Clyde until
it was so dark that he could not see
her sparkling face, but had come di-
reetlv back, dropping the heavy curtains nnd piling fresh coal upon the
fl-n "rs. Nonh bid liehted the lamps
aud then gone after Maddy, explaining to Jessie how she must stay with
her while Maddy went to Mr. Guy,
who wanted to talk with her.
"Is he angry with me, Mrs. Noah?"
and remembering his moody looks
when she went in quest of the book,
Maddy felt her heart misgive her as
to what might be the result of an interview with Guy.
Mra. Noah, however, reassured her,
and Maddy stole for a moment to her
own room to see how she was looking.
The criniBon dress, with its soft edge
of lace about the slender throat, became her well, and smoothing the
folds of her black silk apron, whose
jaunty shoulder pieces gave her a
very girlish appearance, she went
down to where Guy was waiting for
her. He heard her coming, and in-
vobrntnrily drew nearer to him the
chair where be intended she should
sit. But Maddy took instead a stocl,
and leaning ber elbow on the chair,
turned her fnce fully toward him,
waitini* for him to speak.
"Maddy," he began, "are you
bapoy here?"
"Oh, yes, very, very happy," and
Maddy's solt eyes shone with happiness.
It was at least a minute before he
spoke again, and when he did. it
came out how he had concluded it
best to send her and Jessie to school,
for a year or two nt least; not that he
was tired of tenehing her, but it would
be better for her, he thought, to
mingle with other girls nnd learn the
wavs of the world. Aikenside would
still be her home, still the place
where her vacations would be spent
with Jessie if she chose, and then he
spoke of New York as the place he
had in view, and aske'd her what she
thought of it.
Maddy was too -much stunned to
think of anything at first. That the
good she had coveted most should
be placed within her grasp, and by
Guy Remington, too, was almost too
much to credit. She waa happy at
Aikenside, but she had never expected
her life there to continue very long,
and had often wished that when it
ended she might devise some means
of entering a seminary as other young
ladies did. But she had never dreamed of being sent to school by Guy, nor
could she conceive of his motive. He
hardly knew himself, only he liked
her, and wished to do something for
her. This was his reply ,to her tearful
"Oh, Mr. Remington, you are so
good to "me; whnt makes you?"
He liked her, and all over Maddy's
fneo there sprend a beautiful flush as
the words rang in her ears. And then
she told Ony bow much she wished to
be a tencher. nnd so take care of her
grandparents and her poor Uncle
Joseph. It seem"d almost cruel for
that young creature to be burdened
with the care of those three half-helpless people, and Guy shuddered just
as he usually did when he associated
Maddy with them, but when he listened while sbe told him of all the
castles sbe had built, and in every
one of which there was a place for
"our folks," as she termed them, it
was more in tbe form of a blessing
than a caress that hia hand rested on
ber shining hair.
"You are a good girl, Maddy," he
aaid, "and I am glad now that I bnve
concluded to send you where you can
be better .fitted for the office you mean
to fill tban you could be here, but I
shall miss you sadly. I like little girls,
and though you can hardly be classed there now, yo 1 seem to me much
like Jessie, and I take pleasure in
doing for you as I would for* her.
Maddy "
Guy stopped, uncertain what to say
next, while Maddy's eyes again looked up inquiringly.
He was going now to tell "the little
girl much like Jessie" of Lucy Atherstone, and the words would not come
at first.
"Maddy," he said, again blushing
guiltily, "I hnve said I liked you, and
so I hope will someone else. I have
written of you to her."
Up to this point Maddy had a vague
iden that he niennt the doctor, but the
"her" dispelled that thought, and a
most inexplicable feeling of numbness crept over her as she a��ked faintly:
"Written to whom?"
Guy rlid not look at Maddy. He only
knew that her head moved out from
beneath his  hand  as he  replied:
"To Miss Atherstone���Miss Lucy
Atherstone. Have vou never heard of
No, Mnddy npver bad, and with
that snme numbness she could not
understand, she listened while Guy
told her who l.ioy Atherstone was.
and why sbe was not at that moment the mistress of Aikenside. There
was no reason wby (Juy should be excited, but he was, and he talked very
rapidly, never once glancing at Muddy until he hud finished speaking.
She was looking ut hiin intently, wondering if he could hear as she did the
beatings of her heart. Had her life
depended upon it, she could not at
lirst have spoken, for the numbness
which, like bands of steel, seemed to
press all the feeling out of it. She did
not know why it was that (fearing of
Lucy Atherstone should affect her so.
Surely she ought to be glad for Guy
tbat he possessed the love of so sweet
a creature as he described her to be.
He was glad, she knew, he talked so
energetically���so much as if it were a
pleasure to talk; and she was glad,
too, only it had taken her so by surprise to know that Mr. Guy, whom
she had rather consider as exclusively
her own and Jessie's, was engaged,
and that Rome time, before long it
might be, Aikenside would really have
a mistress. She did not quite under-'
stand Guy's last words, although she
wns looking at him. and he asked her
twice if she would like to see Lucy's
nietnre ere she comprehended what he
"Yes," came faintly from the parted lips, about which there was a slight
oiiiver-us she put up her hand to take
the case Guy drew from his bosom.
Turning it to the light, she gazed
silenttv upon the sweet young face,
which seemed to return her gaze with
a _��� L ._, UJ1-1__._. as bur-uwo.
""'TrTiaT 3b~y6u think oT.ief���of my
Lucy? Is she not pretty?" Guy asked,
bending down so that his dark hair
swept against Maddy's, while his
warm breath touched her burning
I "Yes, she's beautiful, oh! so beau-
'itul, and happy, too. I wish I had
been like her. I wish " And Maddy burst into a most uncontrollable
fit of weeping, her tears dropping like
rain upon the inanimate features of
Lucy  Atherstone.
Guy looked at her nmazpd, his own
heart throbbing with a keen pang of
aomitt'lno (indefinable as be listened
to her stormy weeping. What did ail
her? he wondered. Could it be that
the evil against which he was providing had really come upon her?
Was Maddy more interested in him
than he supposed? He hoped not,
though with a man's vanity he felt
a slight thrill �����* satisfaction in think-
iny that it might be so. Guy knew
this feeling wns not worthy of him,
and be Btrugclod to oast it off, while
he asked Maddy why she cried.
Child as sbe was, the real cause of
her tears never entered her brain,
nnd she answered:
"I can't tell why. unless 1 was
thint'i-" how different Miss Atherstone is from me She's rich and
handsome. 1 am poor and homely,
and "
"No. Mnddv. vou are not;" and
Guy interxupted her
Gently llftine up ber head, he
smoothed b*1"'* her luiir. and keepine
a hand on each side of ber face, said,
"You are not '-".-.inly. I think you
quite as pretty as Lucy; I do, really,"
he continued, ns her eyes kindled at
tbe compliment. "I nm eoing to write
to her to-night, and shall tell her more
nbout you. I want you to like each
other very much when she comes, so
that you mny live with us. Aikenside
would not be Aikenside without you,
In all his wooings of Lucy Atherstone, Guy's voice had never been
tenderer in its tone than when be
said this to Maddy, whose lip quivered again, and who involuntarily laid
her head now upon his knee as she
cried a second time, not noisily, but
quietly, softly, as if this crying did
her good. For several minutes they sat
there thus, the nature of their
thoughts known only to each other,
for neither spoke, until Mnddy, half
ashamed of her emotions, lifted up
her head, and said:
"I do not know whnt mnde mo cry.
only I'd been so happy here that I
guess I'd come to think that you only
liked Jessie nnd nie. Of course I knew
that some time vou would see and
think nil the woHd of somebody else.
but I did not expect it so soon. I nm
afraid Miss Atherstone will not fancv
me. and I know most I shall not feel
as free here, after she comes, as I do
now. Then your beine so good, sending me to school, helped me to cry
more, and so 1 was very foolish.
Don't tell Miss Atherstone that I
cried. Tell her. thot***h. bow b"nutiful
she is, and bow glud I am that sho
loves you, and is going to be your
Maddy's voice wns very steady in
its tone. She evidently meant what
sbe snid, but Guv, the bnd man, did
not feel ns graciously ns be ought to
have felt in knowing thnt Maddy
Clyde wns glad "Lucy loved him, and
was to be his wire."
Guy wns rather uncomfortable, and
as Maddy wns in some way associated
with his discomfort, be did not oppose her when she arose to leave.
Had Muddy been more a woman,
or less n child, she would have seen
that it wns well for her to know of
Lucy Atherstone before her feelings
for Guy Remington had assumed a
definite form. As it was, she never
dreamed of how near she was to loving Aikenaide's young heir; and while
talking with Jessie of the grand times
they should hnve at school, she nuir-
vele.* nt that little round spot of pain
which was burning at her heart, or
why she should wish that Guy would
not speak of her in his letter to Lucy
But Guy did speak of her, frankly
confessing the interest he felt in her,
tel'i*"- just how people were beginning to talk, and asking Lucy if she
cared, declaring that if she did, he
would not see Maddy Clyde any more
than was necessary. In a little less
than four weeks there came an answer from Lucy, who,�� with health
somewhat improved, had returned to
England, and wrote to Guy from
Brighton, where she expected to
spend the summer, half hoping that
Guy might join her there, though she
could not urge it, as mamma still
insisted that she was not able to take
upon herself the duties of a wife. Then
she spoke of Maddy Clyde, saying
"She was not one bit jealous of her
dear Guy. Of course, ignorant, meddling people, of whom she feared
there were a grent number in America,
would gossip, but he was not to mind
them." Then she said that if Maddy
were willing, she would like so much
her picture, as she had a curiosity to
know just how she looked, and if
Maddy pleased, "would she write a
few lines, so as not to seem so in.io,,
a stranger?"
Lucy Atherstone had been educated
to think a great deal of birth, and
blood, and family, and Guy never
dii a wiser thin? than when he told
her that, according to Knglish views,
Maddy was a lady. Lucy asked for a
line from- Mmldy, partly to mortify
that pride, and partly to prove to Guy
how free she was from jealousy.
"Darling little Lucy. I do love her
very dearly," was Guy's comment, ns t
he finished reading her letter, feeling
somewhat as if her mother were a
kind of cruel opress, bent on preventing him from being happy. Then, ns
he remembered Lucy's hope thnt he
mis-lit join her, and thought how
much easier of access New York was
than Brighton, he aaid, half petulant-
"I've been to England for nothing
times onoutrh. When that mother of
hers says I may have Lucy, I'll go
again, but not before. It don't pay."
And crushine the letter into his
pocket he went out upon the piazza,
where were assembled Maddy, Jessie,
and Mra. Agnes, the latter of whom
had come to Aikenside the day before. . - - -. - - ~

The Way an Employer Got Squar*
With a Faithless Assistant.
A story Is told io Milwaukee concerning an elderly German who conducted u good sized manufacturiug
pluut on the south side. He had an
engineer at his. factory who had been
with him for Hfteen years and the old
gentleman had implicit confidence in
bim. It was with u profound shock
thut he discovered finally that the
trusted engineer was "grafting" most
shamefully. ���
The proprietor thought it all over for
ii lung while mid then sent for the engineer. When thut functionary arrived the following dialogue took place;
"Ah. John: (iood morning. John How

"Acb, so    And vot are your wages?"
"TvvVnty-tive dollars a week."
"M-m-in. Veil, after toduy It vill be

The engineer thanked his employer
profusely and withdrew. A week later
the old geutleiuilll sent for hlm ngnin.
und tile same conversation ensued,
ending wltb another $5 a week raise
The third Saturday be sent for the
engineer again, und after the same
questions mid answers he raised bis
salary another $."> a week.
Ou the fourth Saturday the engineer
wuh again summoned before the boss.
"How long have you been vorking
here. John?" asked the proprietor.
"Fifteen years," replied tbe engineer,
who liy this time had grown to expect
the weekly question and salary raise
as a regular thing.
"And how much vages are you getting?"
"Forty dollars n week."
"Acb, so?   Veil, you ure fired."
"Fired!" excluhned the engineer, almost fainting. "Why. you huve been
raising my salary $o ut a clip for the
last three weeks."

A  Question  of  Sentiment  on    Whir-*
Honest Divergence of Opinion Ft*.
ists���And a Question of Fact on
Which Everybody Agrees
An eminent writer on the ethical
question of love has said: "To be happy though re-married argues both
ndaptibility and courage." Another
authority says that most women can
really and truly love two, three or
four "times with equal fervor, but th*"t
a man cun only really love once.
There are many cases cited to prot">
these facts, but opponents of the thu-
ory quote witli equal readiness coi;
tra experiences. Tlie writer knows Ot
one man whose wife died of consumption, wliich developed from a slight
cold, and who, though a sense of duty
to his family prompts him to re-marry,
cannot break away from the old love
of his early days. This man says he
contracted consumption from liis late
wife, but learning of the wonderful
merits of Psychine to cure throat and
lung troubles, promptly resorted to
it, with the result that he is perfectly
restored. He states he believes i'
would have saved his wife if he hr*.;
used it. He says he would have usea
it but for the doctors. Now he puts
his faith in Psychine and affirms
that if he ever marries again his next
wife will not die of throat or lull,
trouble, as he knows Psychine to bi
a  positive  e*jre.
"I herewith send my photo and testimonial for Psychine. 1 was given
up 16 years ago as an Incurable consumptive by Prof. Lyman, Rush Medical College, Chicago. I suffered several years after this until I heard of
Psychine, and through it I was restored to perfect health, which I have
enjoyed for the past ten years. My;
sickness began first with catarrh ofi
the head. I readily advise catarrh
and la grippe sufferers to take Psychine.

Psychine, pronounced Si-keen, is

night sweats, chills, wasting diseases,

It Will Not Lead Us Astray In tha
Matter of Overeating.
It Is the systematic practice of clvl
'ized people to thwart, pervert, defy
mil then alius,.* tbelr appetites���with
iiiiii'iitalile consequences. Let Pie
briefly describe wbat this adiniratJe
guide of ours will do for us If It be
given a elm nee.
The appelite of the properly brought
up child is simply invaluable. A child
needs u greut deal of sugar, nnd if Its
Appetite for tills substance be regarded ns reasonable and not a Bymptoni
if original sin the child will take jnsl
to much sugar as it needs, neither
more nor less, anil will not gorge itself
with sweets when it gets a chance.
I am mil talking at random, lor I
observe dull}' In a small child of my
own. and it Is the experience of al'
parents endowed with sufficient sense.
The fund which the child dislikes, such
is fat. Is the food wliich Ihe child's
���tniimcll lias the most difficulty In digesting. ��� -*
In udult life. If the appetite be not
���heated by the conk. It Is our constant
mentor and guide and friend. When
we nre taking much exercise It Is
itblllldilllt. When we take little exercise It diminishes, as It should.
As old age cullies on much less food
is required ami appetite correspondingly diminishes, In short, at every pe
.-Ind of life ami III all circumstances a
properly respected appetite will guide
us in the fashion for which appetite
was designed
Hut we are much too clever to tie run
liy our Instincts, are we uot? We de
nrive the child of the sugar which 11
craves aud then find It a little nuisance and a pig because It makes itself
ill wilh sweets It Is we who should
be scolded nnd should squirm.
When our own appetites full we never dream of iisklng ourselves whether
this is a morbid failure due to illness
or Is a normal diminution telling us
that we do not need food at present
or that we are not In u fit state at
the moment to digest It.
When warm weather comes most of
us use every device of cookery in or
der to produce nn artificial appetite,
which we will then satisfy. There-
ifter we will complain of the heat. But
since we have just piled unnecessary
fuel on the furnace, can we wonder
that we find hot weather oppressive?
Then, as the years go on and we obtain more leisure and free cash, perhaps we are liable to devote ourselves
nore and more to the pleasures of the
���able, seeking ever new devices to pro-
note that hunger which Is the best
mure- the sauce which all other sauces
ire designed to produce. All doctors
know the results.

New Canadian Reserve Contains Many
Big  Limestone  Caverns.
The Dominion Government has sot ,
apart as a national park the wonder- |
ful region at the summit of the Sel-
kirks. It embraces the great glacier
which thousands of tourists visit
every year, scores of other glaciers
and many of the loftiest mountains
in  lhe  Canadian domain.
A new wonder in this region was
discovered in 1904 near the centre of
tlie park. It is a series of limestone
eaves whose windings have been explored for four thousand feet.
An extensive cave area exists beyond that whicli has been explored.
What is known to-day of the cave region is told in an article by A. O.
Wheeler in the annual report of the
Surveyor General of Canada.
This cave region is to be opened
to tourists. It is owly about six miles
from Glacier, the nearest station on
the  Canadian  Pacific Railroad.
A good trail has been cut and a
road jb to be built between Glacier
and the caves. In the eaves ladders
have been placed and paths roped
in; plank walks are to be built across
rough places and in other ways the
visit to the caves is to be made comfortable  and  convenient.
It is still rough work, for steep
climbing is required to reach the region, and none but seasoned pedestrians can explore the caves and
make the round trip from Glacier in a
day. A camp has been established
at the caves in which visitors may
comfortably spend   the  night.
The caves were discovered by C. H.
Deutschman in May. 1904, while he
was hunting big game and prospect**
ing for minerals. It was a year before anything was done to ascertain
tlieir extent and character.
Deutschman has done most of the
exploring. Mr. Wheeler calls him a
remarkable man. and what he says
about the work Deutschman has done
without resistance shows that he is
devoid  of fear.
Tin*" and again he bus descended
into tiiese caves alone. He has penetrated depths of blackest darkness,
illumined only by the ray of a tallow
dip. Added to the darkness in which
he often groped his way was the roar
of subterranean torrents.
He has crossed huge cracks and
made descents in pitch darkness when
a misstep would have meant death.
Wheeler snys thnt now the ladders
are in position nnd guard ropes set
up it is difficult to realize how
Deutschman made his pioneer jour-
nevs in  these caverns.
The b"st light thus far provided
during the surveys and explorations
hns been from ucetylene lumps, which
hnve proved very serviceable.
The caverns occur at this place only
because here is a limestone deposit,
though this rock is rare in the Sel-
kirks. As one walks along in the
valley of Cougar Creek he will discover that the roaring mountain torrent suddenly disnppears in the earth
nnd away below he will find the
place where it comes to the surlace
One will find other streams where
similar phenomena occur. He will
see in the distance a beautiful waterfall. fiO feet high, nnd a.s he approaches
will be surprised to find that its waters do not flow away, but sink where
they fall into a great hole and disappear into the subterranean regions.
These underground waterways are
the exception nnd not the rule in the
Selkirks and the main range of the
Rookies, Only two streams of the
kind have been found in the main
range   nf  the  Rocky   Mountains.
Another curious phenomenon is observed. No matter how warm the day
may be as one wanders among these
mountains, he mny come to more than
one place where a cold shaft of wind
strikes  him.
If he looks for the cause he will
find a crack in the rock through which
comes a current of air like that produced by nn electric fan, but much
stronger. The nir comes from Bome-
where in the interior of the mountain.
These nir currents gave the first intimation of the existence of the caves.
The streams of water for ages dug
into the limestone and wore it away.
The floors of some of the caves are
no*  250  feet  below   the  surface.
Here and there the waters, swinging from side to side for centuries,
wore away broad surfaces, so_ that the
caves are wide; then something caused them to flow along a narrow track
till they dug out deep beds for themselves, and to-day they roar scores
of feet below the general level of the
Scattered here nnd there over the
floor are enormous blocks of rock salt
which in the opinion of a mining engineer fell from the roof; Mr. Wheeler
i-j of the opinion that something as
potent as an earthquake must be necessary to detach them from the rock
In places the waters have excavated
side channels, making connections
with other underground passages.
Some of these lateral openings are bo
low that they cun be traversed only
by crawling.
Nature did not have the comfort of
the tourist in mind when she dug
these caverns, and a great deal must
yet be done before they can be com*
fortablc traversed.
These caverns- are very different
from the great Bhow caves of the
United States. The decorations that
make the glory of Luray ure wanting.
A few stalactites are found, pure
white in color, but the largest is only
eighteen inches long.
Pipes Scared Wolves.
Donald McLean of Warsaw, who recently came to Cnnada from Scotland,
while, engaged in deer hunting recently at the head of Stoney Lake, returned to camp, only to hear the distant howling of timber wolves; his
rifle was found to be useless in the
dark against the oncoming pack.
McLean, hearing that noises of various descriptions had been effectively
used to frighten off wolves, selected
the bagpipes, and playing them incessantly, walked constantly around a
large tree for several hours. The
howling of the wolves grew distant
and they finally disappeared.
McLean declares thut he owes his
life to the lively skirling of the bagpipes.

Over Twenty Thousand Persons Wers
Married by One Ceremony.
The biggest wedding ever known to
jistory was when Alexander the Great
nid over 10,000 of bis soldiers took
mrt In a weddiug In the court of Da-
���i*is, kiug of Persia, after the letter's
ooquest by Alexander. Twenty thou-
nnd two hundred and two persons
ivere made husbands and wives in oue
Tbe facts are these: After conquering King Durius, Alexander deter-
nined to wed Stutiro, daughter of the
conquered kiug, and Issued a decree
that on tbat occasion 100 of bis chief
ollicers should mnrry 100 women from
the noblest Persian uud Medean families. He further stipulated that 10,000
uf his Greek soldiers sbould take to
wife 10,000 Asiatic women.
For this purpose a vast pavilion wai
erected, the pillars being sixty feet
high. Oue hundred gorgeous chambers adjoined this for the 100 noblo
bridegrooms, while for the 10,000 sol-
licrs an outer court was inclosed. Out-
tide of this tables were spread for tbo
Each pair bad seats and ruilged
themselves in a semicircle round tbe
royal throne. As it would have taken
several weeks for the few priests to
have married this vast number of couples had the ceremony been performed
In tbe ordinary way, Alexander invented a simple way out of the difficulty.
He gave his band to Statlro and kissed
her, uud all the remaining bridegrooms
did the same to the women beside
them, and thus euded the ceremony
that united the greatest number of
people ut one time ever known.
Then occurred u five days' festival
which for grandeur and magnlflcenco
never has since been equaled.

The Way to Show Approval That tho
Animal Will Appreciate.
Caress plays no small part ln developing tbe best in any borse, but this
is never to be by word of mouth. You
may as well curse as bless for all your
borse knows or cares. The caress of
the band addressed to the part with
which the animal has Just performed
some feat Is always appreciated���the
expression shows that���and one loves
to see a good man as he lands safe
over a big place just reach back and
give the clever horse a loving pat or
two on that swelling muscular loin
which has been the chief agent ln
negotiating the obstruction.
Do not pat neck or shoulder or any
part not actively engaged in tbe undertaking. Caress may do no good, but
It ls pleasant to believe that it does,
uud we ure quite positive that tho
voice simply diverts attention. The former mode of address is at leust worthy
of trial if only as a mark of appreciation between two gentlemen. Tbe
threatening tones appear sometimes
serviceable, but this Is so only when
horses have been abused and associate
punishment with tbe stern voice. Tho
wild borse Is as Indifferent to the voice
of affection us to that of rage.���From

Drowned Manuscript.
James Uussell Lowell, the flrst editor of the Atlantic, was walking across
Cambridge bridge when bis bat blew off
nnd fell Into the Charles with half a
dozen or more manuscripts with which
It was freighted nnd which he was returning to thc Boston office. A boatman recovered the hat. but the scattered manuscripts perished in those
waves of oblivion. "If they had been
accepted articles, It wouldn't have
lieen quite so bad, for," said he, "we

An odd triumph bus been achieved
by a gardener lu Korea in the shape

in this way It was cut from the ground,

Superstitions    of    the   Aborigines   of
New Zealand.
What in the past has been termed
magic presents itself now to the
scientific mind as an imperfect use
of forces tlie full knowledge of which
we hnve yet to acquire. The Maori
priest of old, or tohunga, ns he waa
called, was master of many powers
which can now be explained by
hypnotism, although his methods of
pretending (o procure messnges fronk
the gods wire doubtless due to craft.
Ventriloquism also was prncticed by
the priests, particularly when communication wns desired with a deceased relative. There remains, however, n miiHS of evidence proving that
these men possessed powers which
can only be explained by processes
into which we ure only now beginning to have any insight.
Many white men are familiar with
some of the outward forms of the observances of Uie Maori priest, but of
the inner meaning and origin of their
ritual we know nothing. In the teaching handed down to those chosen
among their direct descendants under
circumstances of great secrecy the
pupil was put to se*, "eral tests in order
to prove his proficiency.
First, he had to take In his hand a
hard, smooth and round stone, and,
repeating a karakia, or incantation,
called a hoa, to shatter the stone into
fragments, nnd that only by ths mental operation of willing, without any
physical effort. To all the priest's
operations the karakia was a necessary adjunct. It supplied to the Polynesian mind an outward sign connecting cause and effect. The old time
Maori believed, indeed, that the
karakia, the form of words used,
wrought the desired effect, and the
efficacy of this incantation depended
on the absolute fidelity with which
the formula was pronounced.
lhe action of Christ in destroying
the barren fig tree presents an exact
illustration of this destroying by the
power of the will, which their word
hoa covers. The latest guess of scientists that every existing object in the
universe is composed of one element,
and that the unit of that element ii
the electric eon, leads one to the gate
of a field of speculation in which the
mind may wander far.
If the pup.il was successful in the
stone test he was next mude to try
his powers on some animate object,
such as a flying bird, the process being the same ns before. According to
the Maoris, the bird was always killed if the pupil was proficient. Or he
might have a fleeing enemy and cause
him to be seized with nil those agonies of retardation which we are all
familiar with when suffering from
Then came the final test, the pupils
being ordered to exercise the power
of willing to denth some near relative
of his own, in order to show that in
the exercise of his powers he could
rise superior to the feelings of natural affection. This was the dread
makuka, and it is well known that
if a Maori hciieved ho was thus bo-
witched he was sure to die. Here we
Bee the effect of hypnotism and suggestion, conveyed by telepathy. Sometimes a priest who considered himself
deeply affronted has been known to
will to death a whole family for the
act of one individual, and all, even
the babe at the breast, have wilted
The tohunga was even credited with
the power of influencing the dead.
The present writer was a witness to
the following incident: A branch of
the Arawas, the tribe of the district
of Eotorua, being at war, had suffered
defeat, and one of their brt-ves had
been brought home dead. The vanquished sought at once to find out,
by some omen connected with the
dead chief, whether they would be
successful in their next encounter.
The tohunga was requested to procure the desired omen, the people
squatting in a ring about the bier.
Advancing a few paces from the dead
body the priest began to recite a
powurfi'l incantation, intent on making the deceased give some sign, the
eyes of all present being fixed on tht
slain warrior. Presently the corpse
was observed to move slightly to one
side, on which a great cry of joj
arose from the people. The move
ment was interpreted as a sign oi
future victory. This feat was often
performed by the tohunga of olden
Tohoto wns the laat of the old to
hungas. The number of his year*
eoald hardly be guessed at. He was
almost a Methuselah of the Maori,
his race, and, careless as to his personal appenrnnce, he wore his haii
long. I visited him several times in
the seventies, but so extremely sacred
was his person held that it was only
after repeated delays that I was allowed to see him. Indeed, he considered that white people were not
fit to associate with, ns they had no
system of tapu. nor did they regard
things which were tapu to the Maori
with any reverence. I was deeply interested in his manifestations, partly
for their strangeness and partly, per
"��nps, because I had myself assimilat
ed many of the Maori superstition!*

Listened   Intently
In a Scottish asylum for the feebleminded, a minister was preaehing to
the inmates. Trying to interest them
lie told them of the Hindoo mothers
who threw tlieir babies into the Ganges in order to appease the wrath of
the gods. One of the lunatiCH glared
at the speaker so intently thut the
latter wondered if he hud really succeeded in creating some interest. At
the end of the service lie approached
the man who glared, and nsked him if
tlie service hud been interesting, adding: "1 noticed you regarded me
very intently when I told of tho mothers throwing their infants into tlie
river, and wondered what was in
your thoughts at thnt timo."
"I wns wondering," replied the feeble-minded one, "why your mother
did not throw you in."
