To Get Fair
Country is Aroused and Will
Demand Consideration of
Railway Commission,
Because the Canadian Pacific Railway Company are noi obtaining a profit
from this branch of the system to help
swell the enormous dividends being
periodically doled out, they have reduced their train and boat passenger
service to a tri-weekly one, and tho consequent demoralization of thu mail
Borvice has come to suoh a alate that
Slocan people have thrown aside all
apathy and indignantly demand a fair
shake from the compuny.
Masa meetings have beeu held all
over the riding, and tho ultimatum to
be presented to the railway corporation
is such a one that it will leave no doubts
aa to Slocan's earnestness and determination in the matter.
It iB absolutely essential that the
district should have a daily mail service. Throughout a long poriod of
depression this advantago haa remained
���with us, and now when lhe revival of
our mining and lumbering industries
have begun the privilege is nullified by
tbe deterrent Bhort-sighted policy of the
C.P.R. Sandon ia more fortunate than
its sister towns in tha matter of having
a remedy en s*ght. Tbe daily train
service of the Great Northern Railway
betwen Sandon aud Spokane is Al, and
if the C P.R. fails to respond to the ultimatum, the district will demand in a
determined manner that the mail contract be transferred to the Great Northern.
A mosting of the citizens wes held in
the City Hall on Saturday night last,
mid when Chairman Pratt called the
meeting to order every *eat in thn ball
was occupied. It augured well for a
satisfactory ending to the difficulty
when a thoroughly representative gathering  unanimously voiced the demand
of the district. It should have the
effect of a ftarning lo the C.P.R. th.it
they must revert to tho old daily sche
dule or give way to tho legitimate competition of the G.N.R.
Business only' meant, was the prevailing chord of the assembly, and at
the conclusion all felt that the correct
measures had In on adopted to biing lhe
company to time. A telegram wns
despatched to J, 0. MacLeod, Superintendent uf Railway Mail Service, which
was ns follows:
".). 0, MacLeod, Vancouver,
At mass meeting held at Sandon tonight, unanimously resolved to acquaint
you with fact of most unsatisfactory
mail service, By cutting off daily train
CP.R. only giving ua tri-weekly mail
service. Posttnaslor-General wires us
willing to give dally service if train
runs. CIMt. refuse to run daily.
Groat Northern havo recently inaugurated now and moft satisfactory daily
! service from Nelson to this city, returning same day. Citizens most earnestly
pray you t) transfer mail contract lo
Great Northern company. Coiin'ry's
revived prosperity threatened by action
Of C.P.R. (Signed) ,1, J. A.nicin*.*.*;,
Secretary Citizen's Committee."
It was also resolved to appeal in a
forceful manner to the Postmaster General nud the following Ulo-jram wits fur-
warded :
" lion. Rndolpho Lumienx,
Ottawa, Ont,
A citiznn's meeting waa  held on Saturday evening the liftoenih,    A unanimous resolution was passed respectfully
requesting you  lo change our mall service from the Canadian Pacific Railway
to iho Gieat Northern Railway at Nel-
I aon in order Ihat we may have a dailv
service,    Tho former Railway has  dis-
1 continued its daily service into this city
i and the latter railway has given us a
I letter service.    Our mail will come into
Sandon from Nelson in six  hours daily.
' Our present service via the C.P Kly is
tri-weekly,     Please  givo   above  your
early attention.
(Signed) .1. J. Atiikhtov,
Secretary Citizen's Committee."
Tho Standing Committee were also
authorized to lay the whole situation
before Wm, Wbyte, Fs<_, 2nd Vice-
President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and the resolution has been acted
It was n':;-> resolved to fall in line
with the whole distiict, and the follow-
in;; resolution was adopted : " That Ibis
meeting pledges itself to support the
lake towns in their fight for a better
boat and mail service."
To say thai the business men of tbo
lake towns are indignant at tho backward move of lhe C.P.R. would be puling it very mildly.    All the residents of
New Denver, Silverton and Slocan City
are up in arms against the company,
and mean to show in a determined and
businesslike manner that the present
mail and boat service foisted upon them
will not be tolerated. A year ago, perhaps, when depression was at its lowest
ebb, such a service would have been
accepted as inevitable, but now when
the tide has turned and Prosperity is
catching up with rapid strides, the
stern men who havo cast in their all
nnd stood put for so long are aroused
and determined tq secure justice.from
the railway company by constitutional
methods, Meeting* of protest havo
been held galore, each succeeding one j
gaining in numerical and diplomatic
strength, until a mighty wave of righteous indignation now sweeps the
countryside, and a combined howl of
protest was given vent lo on Tuesday
I last.
The venue was Silverton, seleoled for
| its  central   location, and   thither the
crowds headed.     Needless  to mil the
C.P.R.   bonis   were   too   buoy  hauling;
I freight to net any {.ahi f on   the incursion, and thai thn crowd arrived at tlie
1 rendezvous per Shanks, gasoline launch,
|Btroiigarmandhor8ebaf.lt.   The largest I
congregation of  bu-inesa* n en in  the
history of the Slocin w,is the mult, and
lhe business put through wis such Ihat
the world will soon learn that Slo. au j
was out  to  will  and  that  lhe C.P.li.
heel Ins to be lifted for ever.
The chair was occupied by William
' Hunter, Esq., M.P.P. for tlie riding,
: who kept the crowd in splendid order.
1 Naturally there were mnny grievances
! to unfold, the speech-making in c��n*e*
1 quence lasting over an hour. Then when j
i all tho ideas were gatlu red in it was seen I
that the C.P.R. would fuo a heavy in-
I dictment before tho Railway Cominis-
ion, and when tho  question   was   put:
"Failing to obtain  redress  as the result of the action of this assembly, shall
the matter be taken before the Railway i
Commission'.'"   brought  forth   with a
roar, " Aye I"
Committeos were then forme 1 and
various resolutions for tlieir guidance
were adopled, H wai agreed to lay the
case before Mr, Wbyie, at Winnipeg, '
and before the committees dispersed
tho epistle containing Slocan's appeal
for fair play was drafted.
The gist of the whole trouble is to be
found iu the fact of the increased traffic
over Ibis branch of the company's
system. Twice a day both barges
laden With cars are being towed from
Rosebery to Slocan City, whilo n third -
tug ia about to be put into coinmi-sion.
Both freight trains arc making a double
trip daily between Nakusp and Rosebery
porta, so it will bs readily understood
why such small trifles aa mail and passenger service fail to interest the company. But tho N. cc S. branch wns
built with public money, and tbe public
now refuse to accept tho dirty go-by.
Tho tri-weekly serv.ee, too, so graciously
bestowed upon the district is nbout as
farcical a one as it is possible lo cou-
ceive, Tho boat bringing nlong the
Neluon mail ii due to arrive at New
Denver at 8.80 p.m., but Hie townspeople have invariab'y retired for the
night when the mail arrives, ti o late lo
be sorted, and another, day's business
retarded. At Silverton the same ludicrous conditions prevail. It wns aptly
put by a prominent resident of Hint
town when be remarked that the boat
waa e.\;*cc!ed when it wasn't required
and that it arrived when it got there.
Tlie tii-waekly service is a dismal
failure, and dwellers in tha lake towns
know lhnt this paisengor and mail service was instituted that more energy
might be conconlia'cd on the ever in-
orea-in-g: freight blockade, and not, ns
given out from tho Nelson office because
the depreciation in business warranted
it, When the C.P.I!, in its grec 1 for
dividends antagonist's a district aa It is
now doing lhe Slocan, it is a cb-ar case
for the Railway Cuminis-ion, and Slocan
will do its part in the light to a unit.
The N-Ison Canadian of roent date
said tint " the immediate future of tho
Slocin district, in so far as it is oflecled
Dy transportation facilities, will be determined by Iho development of the
next Iwo months." In other words the
Canadian would s dace us with the
bogey that if bin-moss picked upon this
branch of the C.P.R. during Ihe next
two months the.daily service will be
restored. Now, wo well know that the
editor of Nelson's evening excitement
is a born wag, ami we conclude that
the humorous vein was itching when h��
dashed off the above lines. Does lhe
editor really expect ua to believe that
lhe C.P.It. h.ta interest enough in the
S'oi'an to put ui on probation for the
next two months? We beg 'Bior
Clarke to dis,*el such a notion from his
grey mat U*r, for tbo Slocan is "next "
to the oc'opui of the great west, and
it naturally fellows that we doubt any
such giod liitantidns -..-n their part, olse
why pursue s.icli an unbusinesslike
method of applying the test. Wo cannot conceive of a merchant increasing
his revenue by cl ising his stars four
days a weel; while another merchant
doing business in Iho same lovn is I e-
hind    his    counter  every  day   filling
orders ; nor is it possible for the
Cnuiilian Pacific to earn increments
when .they shut slop hair lhe week
whilo tlie Great Northern corrals all lhe
business. It is but natural to supposo
that were tho C.P.R. earnest in their
protestations for good, they would adopt
a test compatible with common sense
in the same manner as an ordinary man
or company would do. If the railway
company under notice had kept the
train running daily for two months
longer the increase of tiaftlc and ore
tonnage would bo appreciated, nnd there
would huve been no cause for the Daily
Canadian lo assuin* tho role of an
apologist -at least, ill this matter,
Mr. Coleman opened out to tho
Daily Canadian as follows;
"I have nbo promise 1 that a check
will bo kept, on Iho total traffic of tho
district fur n period of two mouths,
and that if at lhe ond of Ihat time there
are any indications of a substantial improvement, the daily service *��ill be
Now, wouldn't that jar yon. Mr.
Coleman, just fnsh from iho cent belt,
ia something of a humorist, too, "A
check will be kept on the total traffic "
(fin). In- lhe face of events aud the
test applied we conclude: yes, yes,
quite ao, perhaps not. We a_c thinking
of starting a balloon service ourselves.

Eloise was having thoughts. That
they were not pleasant thoughts was
proved by the hurry with which she
donned her tan ulster and close brown
walking hat and slipped out of the
house. She hurried down brilliantly
lighted Broadway, hoping that the new
experience of being alone, unchaperon-
ed, unprotected, amid the rush of life
on all sides, might divert her mind.
���She was halted at last by a man with
a megaphone. He was shouting: "All
aboard for Chimftown! Right this
(way. Tickets two dollars. All aboard
for Chinatown!"
She looked up at the huge, ngly "rubberneck wagon," now fairly transformed Into a bower of beauty of red, white
and blue electric lights and Chinese
lanterns bobbing ln the chill breeze.
It seemed to offer surcease from the
Insistent, uncomfortable thoughts at
the back of her brain. The old wagon
in Its brave array held some of the allurements of fairyland and its huppy
Irresponsibility, and on the spur of the

at the thought of where she was and
under what protection as she gazed

She jumped at the sound of her

the man before her.

Beautiful   Daughter  of  English   Earl,
Shot by Her Husband.
Lady    Dorothy   Cnthbert,  daughter
of tbe fifth Earl of Strafford, and one
of the   most  popular    and   beautiful
I women in society, has been killed un-
! der terribly tragic circumstances. She
j was the victim of the accidental dis-
charge of a gun carried by ber hus-
' band.
Barely four years have passed since
Lady  Dorothy's  marriage to Captain
| James  Harold  Cuthbert.
Lady  Dorothy   Cuthbert   was   only
j 26 years  of  age.    Captain   Cuthbert,
i although only  two  years older  than
his  wife,   has   had    a  distinguished
military career.    He served with the
! Scots Guards through the South Afri-
: can war, and gained his D.S.O.    He
| was a  crack   shot,  and  in   1S03  was
champion revolver shot in the army.
The scene of the tragedy was Rob-
son's  Wood,  near  Beaufront   Castle,
the lovely home of the young couple
in Northumberland.
Captain Cuthbert was out with a
small party for pheasant shooting.
Lady Dorothy traveled to the scene
of the shoot in her motor-car for the
purpose of joining the party at
luncheon. Sho was walking by her
husband's side. Suddenly a keeper,
who was walking in front, heard the
report of a gun.
Turning round he was horrified to
see Lady Cuthbert lying on the snow-
covered ground and her husband prostrate beside her. Captain Cuthbert
was in a dead faint, and did not know
for some hourB afterwards what was
at once apparent to the keeper and
: other members of the shooting party
'���that his wife had been instantaneously killed by a gunshot in the
head. When the dreadful news was
j broken to him by his agent lie was
overcome with anguish.

The Word "Explode."
"Explosive" wus first used In IU
modern sense lu the first quarter of
the nineteenth century. "Explode" in
the sense of "blow up" or "go off" is
scarcely a ccutury older. Before that
people talked of a ball being "exploded" from a guu, the clouds "exploding"
lightning or a volcano "exploding"
lava, but that was very much nearer
the word's original sense of driving
away with scorn. "Explode," in fact,
is literally to clap away aud was a
technical word for driving an actor off
the stage by contemptuous handclap-
ping. That ls the real meaning of an
"exploded idea."
been no negligence or carelessness on
the part of Captain Cuthbert, to
whom tliey and the coroner expressed
the deepest sympathy.
Captain Cuthbert was, of course, the
chief witness. Though he looked haggard and pale, he was outwardly
calm. His description of the accident
was given briefly and in low tones.
Lady Dorothy, he said, wns walking
on his left, and he was carrying his
gun on his left shoulder, with his
bands placed low down on tlie stock.
He saw what he took to be a pigeon
among the trees on his left rear, and
was just raising his gun to fire at it
when the weapon went off.
His lingers were cold nt the time,
Captain Cuthbert explained, and his
opinion was that he must have pulled
the trigger before he knew he had his
finger upon it. The gun had not been
raised to his shoulder when it hat]
exploded, and it did not catch in his

British     Disarmament   Scheme     Ex-
Cites  Hilarity of Teutons.
Sir Henry CampbeU-Bannerman's
disarmament professions excite hilarious comment in Germany.
But the Premier's interjection during Mr. Balfour's speech in the House
recently, that it would be at the suggestion of Mr. Balfour if Continental
diplomatists compared the declarations of the Premier in peace with
the statements mado by Mr. Haldane
and the Admiralty on British military
efficiency, is regarded as an insult to
the intelligence of German observers.
Nothing will shake German conviction that, if Britain seriously promotes
disarmament, its sole object is to limit
the armies and navies of Germany, or
other foreign countries, while increasing the British forces.
No arguments will ever induce Germans to believe that the astute English really believe in Buch ideas aa
the Premier professes.
To the German mind the question
resolves itself as follows: If Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman's professions
nre sincere, it is inexplicable how tiie
supreme post of the Britisli Empire
should be intrusted to an impossible
If, on the contrary, it is, as every
one assumes, an anti-German design,

j duped.

It is hot water with a few tea leaves

majority of the lower classes, wbo
heretofore could only afford hot water,

Czar's "Protected" Train.
The Czar'B Imperial bomb-prool
train, in which the Dowager Empress
of Bussia traveled from St. Petersburg
recently, remains in one of the sidings
at Calais, where it is attracting much
attention. It is a magnificently furnished train, and consists of nine very
large coaches, the bodies of which are
specially constructed of steel. Each
of the coaches bears the Imperial
eagles emblazoned in gold on the outside panels. One peculiar feature of
the train is the smaUness of the windows. The train is guarded night and
day by thirty or forty attendants,
most of whom live on the train.
Soft Woods Give Out Most Heat.
Contrary to a widespread belief that

The Punishment of a Man Eater That
Killed a Tibetan.
Fifty years ago tigers were very common even in the high hills of western
TIBet, writes C. A. Sherring In his account of that country. At the present
time, however, owlug to the increase
of population and the genervi spread of
cultivation, they have become rare,
and the appearance of a man eater
who carried off a poor old woman on
the slope of Chipla created consternation.
On the following day there were
gathered together a hundred grim men,
armed only with axes and stones, for
they had not a gun among them.
Fortune favored the brave, for the
tiger was found asleep under a rock.
At once each man dropped silently into
the cover of the brushwood and piled
a heap of stones near to his hand,
while one of the most trusted of the
party was commissioned to stalk to
the top of the rock and drop a huge
stone on the sleeping brute.
So well was the work done that the
stone fell true on the tiger's back, and
immediately, with a roar, the wounded
beast sprang up and, seeing his ene*
mles, who leaped from their cover,
charged the line.
But a hundred men, desperate as to
consequences, throwing stones with
might and main, are uot to be awed or
turned from their purpose lightly. The
stones broke the tiger's teeth and went
lato his mouth, and his body soon became a mass of wounds.
Turning, he tried to escape and took
his pursuers up hill for n mile, but
wherever he paused and whatever he
did he could not escape the pitiless
rain of missiles. The blow on his back,
first given, effectively checked his
speed, and finally, worn out, he came
to bay under a great cliff.
The rest was easy. He was Immediately hemmed In, and the stones were
showered on him thicker than ever and
hurled with redoubled energy. As he
sank down the villagers rushed in and
dispatched   bim   wltb   their   axes.
Sheridan's Speech In Connection With
the Hastings Trial.
Answering a correspondent who asked about tbe speech of Sheridan In connection with the Warren Hastings
trial, the London News says:
"That immense oratorical triumph
was certainly not reported in the notes
ln question, for the Oude speech was
not delivered during the trial. Sheridan pronounced it in the bouse of commons in the year before the trial In
moving that the Oude charge should
be one of tbe articles of the Impeachment
"No speech recorded in our history
ever had such a reception. The entire
house and all iu the galleries violated
the traditions of parliament aud set a
precedent that remains unfoJlowed by
dapping furiously and continuously.
Pitt, fully conscious of the extraordinary state of excitement disclosed by
this breach of decorum, moved the adjournment on the unparalleled ground
that 'the minds of members were too
agitated to discuss the question wltb
coolness and judicially.' Sheridan had
spokeu for five hours and forty minutes. No full report of the speech
exists. The best appeared in the London Chronicle for Feb. 8, 1787.
"The fame of the speech was such
that when the trial came on ��50 was
gladly paid for a seat ln the hall on
the day of Sheridan's speech as a
tianager of the impeachment Macau-
lay's account of that speech, which is
both misleading and inaccurate in several respects, at least permits us to
know the fact that the speaker was
publicly embraced by Burke on resuming his seat At a later stage ln the
trial���six years later, ln fact���Sheridan
delivered another speech which was
described by one of the auditors as an
extraordinary rhetorical triumph."

Robin and Sparrow Keep House With
a Rabbit.
A sparrow, a robin and a rabbit
have lived peacefully together in an
old hollow log all winter and seem to
be the best of friends. They took up
housekeeping in the same abode to
keep warm, and apparently have
thrived without friction since the first
snows came. The rabbit hardly needed feathered companions to add to
hia bodily comfort, as his kind are
well protected by nature, but evidently be longed for companionship.
Georgt; S. Hixon, on whose farm
the happy family have been sharing
quarters, says that he has frequently
seen the rabbit occupy the end of
the log on cold days in order to keep
bis companions warm within. Sometimes he would keep his post for forty-
eight hours without food, apparently
for no other reason than to be sure
that his pals within were shielded
from the winter blasts.
Went  Foraging.
When tbe weather was agreeable
the rabbit, sparrow and robin would
go foraging together, the former picking up a living by gnawing the bark
of poplar trees and the latter by delving about for what edibles thei
could (ind. Several times Mr. Hixon
has observed them trailing along buck
to the log in Indian file. On thc.��e or
cnsions the birds either hopped be
hind the rabbit or fluttered close ti
the ground.
"I went out one morning after a se
vere storm to place food where the
family could get it and found the lop
entirely covered," said Mr. Hixon
"As I neared tbe spot there was n
disturbance of the snow and out hopped the rabbit. After him came tin
sparrow and robin. The birds looked
nbout in a dazed kind of way and
then nestled close to their furry com
panion. At my approach they flev
to nearby trees, but as soon as I hnd
retired all three assembled for the
feast I left."
Fisheries Might Be Greatly Improved
by  Importation of Stock.
A correspondent of The London
Times calls attentions to the many
neglected trout streams in Great Bri
tain, meaning the smaller tributariet-
of well-known fishing rivers. These
brooks are overlooked by the angle i
chiefly because the fish are small, a
condition which can be easily remedied by building occasional : mull dams.
In the ponds thus made the fish may
lie in hot weather, and every such
expanse of water is a catch-all foi
and actual producer of food for the
trout. Such a policy, with propei
stocking, would vastly increase the
amount of fishing water available foi
the modest angler. These observations apply with considerable force
on this side the water���not so much
in the way of improving the smaller
streams, which the Canadian small boy
���more enterprising than his British
contemporary ��� annually fishes to
death, but rather by way of suggesting the introduction of trout into
waters now given over to courses fish.
Rather few waters are adapted to that
fastidious aristocrat, our speckled
trout, but the brown trout will thrive
in almost any northern stream not
hopelessly polluted. He will even
maintain himself against the perch
and pike kind, but not for long against
the omnivorous black bass. There
are many streams which now afford
only a negligible kind of mixed fishing that would provide tolerable trout
fishing. Gradually, the riparian owners will realize, first, that they are
neglecting a valuable utility; next,
that, since the day of our splendid
wilderness trout is passing, it is time
to consider the cl'ma of the trout of
civilization, the river trout of Europe.
It is not given to all of us to fish
the great lakes and streams of Canada, but a little thrift would provide
plenty of fly-fishing within a hundred
miles of home. And with the brown
trout will presumably come also such
engaging sophistications as the dry-
fly, which go far to compensate for a
light basket at nightfall.
Death of a Pioneer.
P. H. Bradt, a Fort Garry pioneer,
died recently aged 93 years. He had
been a resident of Winnipeg since 1878,
and had had a remarkable career. He
was one of the survivors of those who
took an active part in the stirring
events of 1837, having served with the
Government against W. Lyon Mackenzie. He also wore the medal for
Fenian raid services. The old man's
memory was remarkable, and, up to
the time of his death, delighted to
tell of his experiences along the Niagara frontier in 1837. He was on sentry
duty on the night the steamer Caroline was sent over the Falls, and saw
that occurrence, being probably the
last eye-witness of the tragedy
Periodicity of Mania by Which the
Patient Lives Three Lives.
There Is a special form of mental disease, first described ln Frauce, whose
definite character Is given to It by Its
periodicity, and hence It is called folle-

of tbe mental circle that the patient
moves In���viz, elevation, depresslou
and sanity���and In this rouud he
spends his life, passing out of oue Into
the other, for It Is, when fully established, a very Incurable disease.
Tbo patient takes an attack of mania,
during which he ts Joyous, restless,

little and never seems to tire. His

he shows diminished self control aud

This lusts for a few weeks, or a few

This state will last a few weeks or

How Canada's   Mountain   Pathfinders
Do Their  Work.
People loll in cushioned Pullmans
or leisurely discuss their dessert in
the diner as the train whirls them
through the mountains, clattering
across trestle-spanned gorges, now
rushing along the edge of dizzy cliffs,
where the roadbed, a narrow shelf
carved in the rock, clings to the face
of a precipice.
Those travelers \p luxurious high
speed trains, how many of them, as
they gaze indolently toward the towering snow peaks and the shadowy
depths of the canyons, pause to think
of tlie surveyors who mapped the
road, and whose pioneer work has
made it possible to travel de luxe
through this grand scenery?
Pathfinders at Work.
To the average occupant of the parlor ear the thought of camping out in
deep snow of the winter woods would
be no less abhorrent than tbe idea of
crawling for hours in the broiling sun
along steep side-hills and over rock-
slides bereft of shade, one's tongue
akin to dry flannel, and water���well,
perhaps half a mile away. But these
are commonplace event,-* in the life of
tlie railway surveyor.
Let the reader imagine that he hat
taken conge of civilization, and that
he is one of the sun-burned, smoke-
scented, overalled crowd that constitutes a survey camp���fifty miles up
the pack trail that winds off through
the mountains from the very last
jumping off place on the railway.
The  "Get  Up" Call.
Early in the morning���horribly early���just as a faint light���the first pale
shafts of sunrise���is pushing up over
the big mountain across the valley,
and while yet the stars gleam in the
frosty sky, above the black tops of
the pines, comes the reveille, nn
abominable din of tinpan and stick,
harshly discordant. This melody
produced by the cookie (the chef's
assistant) means "get up," and fifteen minutes loiter a similar, but
greatly modified, alarm suffices to call
the faithful to breakfast. During the
progress of the meal the daylight gets
a chance to expand, and soon after
the last man has satisfied his hunger comes the call "All out."
Now nil hands "hit the trail" for
the line, marching in single file, eyes
downcast, and ever on the alert for
tbe wind-fallen logs which beset the
path, and the slender branches that
fly back like whips to sting the un-
wnrv. It is a sad procession. There
is little conversation, and that little

cumbersome lunch pack, of which
every one is glad to eat his share,

Perils of the Work.
Lunch finished and a pipe smoked,

Tf tlie survey has had easy ground
that morning there are now perhaps
some bluffs to be negotiated. They
can't be avoided by detours. For
grade must be followed, and, unlike
the wagon road, there is no flexibility
allowed. This rigid adherence to a
fixed line often places the surveyors
in most unpleasant positions, and
quite frequently it is on some narrow
ledee or projecting rock on the face of
n bluff that the transit man must
place his mark. This means that he
fins to clamber there with his instrument, set up the tripods, squint
through the telescope, and read angles���and probably all this careful

Stork Beats Fast Train.
While a Michigan Central immigrant train was speeding its way to
Windsor a boy was born to Mrs. Mary
Rosenbloom, a Russian immigrant on
her way to the United States. The
mother was anxious that the child be
born in the United States, the land of
her adoption, and the engineer put
on full speed at her request, but the
stork took matters in his own hands,
and the youngest member of the Rosenbloom family will have to claim
the Dominion of Canada as the land of
his nativity, though he miBsed being

There are a number of new models

When to  Plow Land.
The proper time to plow laud is
when it is just moist enough to break
up mellow, neither wet enough to
leave a slick surface where rubbed by
the moldboard nor dry enough to
break up in large clods, or, as the
southern farmer puts it, when the
soil has a good season in it. If continued rain follows wet plowing, little
harm follows, but hot, dry winds
would soon leave only a mass of unmanageable clods. In spring and mid-

the utmost importance to run the harrow immediately after the plow. This

The  Type  to  Select  to  Secure   High
Grade Stock.
There never will be absolute certainty in breeding, and it is through
variation from type that we obtain
some of our best gains. But we do
want a reasonable degree of certainty, and we want an even chance that
any variation may be on tbe side of
improvement. This reasonable certainty is secured only by the fixing of
type through a long line of careful
breeding. Therein is the value of a
pedigree. An animal of desired type,
having ancestors that possessed the
same excellent points, reproduces it-
self in high degree. The grade, no
matter how good an individual, has
blood of an inferior type in it, and
when such a sire ie used there is no
certainty about the type of its get.
It does seem strange that some intelligent farmers remain careless
about securing the use of pure bred
males. There can be no certainty
about the type of the offspring of
grade sires except the certainty that
some of the young will hark back to
the inferior ancestors. Inferior grades
of live stock are causing our farmere
a heavy loss as compared with the
possible receipts from growing and
feeding high grades, and wo can never get away from the inferior grades
until men use only males that combine the best points with purity of
breeding, so that those points can be
transmitted with reasonable certainty.
Let every one make sure that the
male is a good individual, and let
there be equal care that there is pure
breeding back of the individual to insure transmission of his good qualities, says the National Stockman and
Harness Arrangement  to   Restrain   a
An arrangement such as shown in
the cut has been suggested as effective
to cure a horse which kicks in harness. A heavy strap (P) is attached to
the collar and extends back under the
surcingle, where it is attached to a
heavy ring.
Through this ring is passed a rope
or strap (M), which is attached to
straps on the hind hocks at S. This
is made loose enough so that the animal may walk comfortably, but too
tight to allow the animal to kick.
After wearing this harness awhile the
horse will cease to try to kick in harness and may be driven without difficulty.���Farm and Home.
The Good Shepherd.
Provided a person about to embark
in sheep keeping were to inquire
what would be his first essential in
making a start in that industry I
should answer, "Develop a kind and
patient disposition." In reality it ls
practically useless for a man possessed of a hard heart and cruel temper
to pay long prices for blooded stock
or short prices for culls. He will succeed with neither in case he gives the
flock his personal care. The sheep, being a nervous, timid creature, cannot
thrive under abuse. The man who
rears the finest specimens, the man
whose stock wins the purple and blue
In the show ring, you will find is the
man who treats his stock as they
should be treated���with kindness.
Stock will ever respond to kind treatment. It is the best "feed" you can
give them. The nervous strain of fear
is a serious obstacle to their well being. The person whom nature has
blessed with a kind heart or he who
has developed this disposition by his
own strong will power, such a man
will succeed in the sheepfold of this
world and succeed to the sheepfold of

Short Rotation of Crops.
Every farmer realizes the value of
a short rotation of crops in maintaining the fertility of the soil. Yet It
is not at all uncommon to seed to

for three or four consecutive years

the clover plant as a renovator ol
the soil is lost, says a writer in Ohio

Increase of Drunkenness Among Eng
Careful observers of social conditions in both the upper and the lowe)
classes of society cannot fail to hav<
noted of late a decided increase is
the addiction to alcoholic liquors oa
the part of women. Published statistics relating to tiie number and agei
of women convicted of drunkennesi
give one no real idea of the extent
of the evil, for only a very small frae*
tion of the intemperate fall into th*
hands of the police. Moreover, though
a woman doea not become drunk unless she has been intemperate, shs
may easily be highly intemperats
without ever becoming drunk. It il
notorious that a drunken woman it
reclaimed only with the greatest difficulty, for she knows that she has
unsexed herself. The inebriated woman injures her reputation, the intemperate woman her health.
Secret  Drinking.
Many women take to secret drink*
ing���the bane of womanhood���by reason of the lonely lives they live, to
soften the sorrow which is the lot oi
so many women or to deaden thai
anxiety about the future which iB fo
harassing to the timid minds of sa
many of the weaker sex. It is surely
an evil sign of the times when tha
very factory girls, who think lightly
of the present and still less of the
future, form what are called "spirit
clubs," into which the girls make
small payments to accumulate until
Christmas eve and then to be spent
in spirits, wine and cakes.
Increased  Facilities.
Increased facilities for drinking are
to be numbered among the causes oi
the increasing intemperance among
women. Women travel alone to a fat
greater extent than was formerly the
ease; women's club afford every op.
portunity to those who wish to indulge in potent liquors; some of the
big stores and mammoth drapery es*
tablishments have licensed refresh*
ment rooms; restaurants and railway
buffets continue to multiply, while the
pastry cook with a wine license is
very much in evidence in every residential district. A woman in a good
position in life may be intemperate to
a degree without ever having recourse
to the ordinary public house. It is
not pretended that all the places enumerated above have spirit licenses,
but intemperance in port and sherry
or even in bottled ale is almost equally destructive to health.

them for those duties and responsibil*
ities which Bhould be the first care of
the women of every race. Intemper*
ance among men is bad enough, but
among women it is a far more serious
matter, since in their case the future
of a race, a kingdom or an empire
may be imperiled. Intemperance
among women is incompatible with
the welfare of the children, who, even
if they are unaffected by a bad heredity, must be affected by evil parental
example. It is because of this that
the drunken mother is regarded as a
eurse to her family and a menace to
the state. Even the most unprejudiced and tolerant of moderate drinkers
on the male sides looks upon a drunken woman with a horror and loathing
that are almost instinctive.
Powerful  Nerve  Poisons.
Among the lower orders gin is the
beverage of election, or. failing that,
"four ale" in unimaginable quantities.
The liqueur is another prime favorite
with those women who can afford it
and is certainly the most destructive
of all, containing, as it always does,
those deleterious essential oils so necessary to mask the taste of the cheap
alcohol, which is so raw and fiery
that it could not be swallowed in its
natural state. These essential oils and
alcohols act ns powerful nerve poisons if taken in sufficiently large doses
and over a sufficient period of time,
and in the seductive flavors of the liqueur containing them lies their great
danger to women.
Hope for the future of our womankind lies in the fact that all women
are to some extent the slaves of fashion, and once it becomes no longer
the fashion for women to drink freely
of potent liquors at dinners, dances
and other convivial assemblies intemperance among them will receive a
check. But against the pet vice of
secret drinking the only remedy U in
the teaching of temperance and hygiene.���London Chronicle.

Dust on the Ocean.
To talk of a "dusty" ocean highway sounds absurd, but the expression is perfectly accurate. Every one
who is familiar with ships knows that,
no matter how carefully the decks may
be washed in the morning, a great
quantity of dust will collect by nightfall. You say, "But the modern
steamship, burning hundreds of tons
of coal a day, easily accounts for such
a deposit." True, but the records of
sailing vessels show that the latter
collect more dust than a steamer. On
a recent voyage of a sailing vessel���
a journey which lasted ninety-seven
days���twenty-four barrels of dust were
swept from the decks. The captain
was a man of scientific tastes, and
made careful observations, but could
not solve the mystery. Some, no
doubt, comes from the wear and tear
on the sails and rigging, but that
accounts for only a Bmall portion. To
add to the mystery, bits of cork, wood
and vegetable fibre are frequently
found in this sea dust Where doea i\
come from? *e����e��eo��ee��ee��*������e-��-����������-seo������_��i___'____o.*e-a
