A DANGEROUS PLEA.
We are surprised to see that Sir Wilfrid Laurier has attempted to dispose of
Mr. Borden's arguments with a sneer,
and flie Liberal newspapers and
speakers, following this lead, have
set up the cry ot a "Slander Campaign."
This cry has been heard before. It was
used with great vigor by the defenders
of the Ross Government on Ontario as
their unfailing answer to the arraignment which Bwept them from office with
an overwhelming defeat.
The taunt is as absurd as it iB dangerous to those who mnke it. Slander and
personal abuse bave no part in the dignified addresses of the Conservative
leader; and the Conservative platform
he has announced is singularly constructive, progressive, and business-like.
It is true that the record of the Liberal Government gives peculiar significance to the Conservative plea for the
purity of administration which forms
part of the Halifax platform and to
which the Conservative party is publicly
committed. But the Conservative party
is not responsible for the Liberal record.
It is true that with purity of administration, scandals of impurity cannot
exiEt, and that wben we achieve purity
of administration we shall hear the l��Bt
of graft in timber deals, graft in land
deals, graft in townsite deals, or of the
wicked and ridiculous waste of tlie people's money to reward political partsans.
But does that make a "Slander Campaign ? "
We doubt if any Canadian publicist
lias done Ins whole duty to the electors
of Canada who has not called tlieir attention to tho shameful revelations
which investigations in parliament and
proceedings in courts of justice have
disclosed as the political methods of tlie
Laurier Government. We shall deal
with Borne of them in a later issue. It
Is the unniistakeable sign of a hopeless
case to raise against tbem tbe childish
answer of a taunt.
We Canadian people must bave a care
that the national conscience be not
deadened. A geneiation ago the hint
of a public scandal would bave overwhelmed the ablest Ministry of the day.
Like Cieear's wife the nation's trustees
muBt have been above suspicion. Any
one of our many disclosures of corrupt
administration would drive a British
cabinet from office aud debar the minister responsible from public life forever.
In the strenuous campaign of the
Presidential election in tho United
States no word of the like is beard, and
and we are given, on occasion, to draw
comparison between American and Canadian politics to our advantage. The
Ameiican people make short work of a
scandal government. The possibility
of a "Slander Campaign" is sufficient.
If tbe statement of these facts makeB
a "Slander Campaign," we fear  we are
guilty.   But it is a very poor argument
lo call names.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Btill begs the
privilege of finishing his work.
His government haB given to speculators only about 2,500 Si.uare miles of
western timber. There is a little more.
Let bim finish tbe job.
There are more farm lands and more
political syndicates like that which got
250,000 acres in the Saskatchewan. Let
the government finish the division.
The grazing lands are not all gobbled
np hy irrevocable lessees. Let tliat bo
finished.
Taxation and expend rye have only
been trebled. That is m*roly preliminary.
Let Sir Wilfrid Lanrier finish these
works.l
Rich Strikes of Ore at Moyie
And SaiiM), B.C.
SPOKANE, Wash, Sept. 80.-Re-
ports of a Btrike of rich ore are come
from the Aurora property, near Moyie,
B.C., The latest find proves tbat leads
of tbe St. Eugene run under the lake
and through the proporty of the Anrora.
The Canadian Mining Company has acquired the lake and .60,000 has been
spent in sinking a sort of caisson to
reach the bottom. A al*tt bas been
sunk on the summit of the hill where
the ore outcrops, to a depth of 150 feet,
and connecis with a tunnel driven on
the vein for 400 feet. A crosscut has
been driven to the right in this tunnel,
and shows the dyke to be about 1400
feet in width, while the pay streak varies from Bix feet to one foot in the
pinches. A second lead was tapped by
a crosscut and followed for 150 feet, this
also showing some high grade ore. At
the mouth of tbe Bhaft a four foot body
of ore was encountered which widened
out to nine feet in the tunnel. A lower
tunnel has been started about 150 feet
below No. 1, and will hnve to be driven
560 feet before the ore will be caught.
The ore above No. 1 tunnel is of the
concentrating quality, running about
24 per cent, lead and carrying 11 ounces
of silver to the ton. The properly belongs to the Canadian Consolidated and
Smelting Company.
What ie believed to be the biggest
stiike ever made in tlie Kootenays bas
been made in tbe Nugget mine at Salmo,
B.C., according to a report made by
Benjamin Hicks, who is in Spokane.
Mr. Hicks says that alter blasting in
the lower tunnel, which cut the lead at
a depth of 250 feet, the whole facecf the
drift was found to be in ore which glit-
tera with gold. The width of the vein
is four feet. Miners working at the
property declare they never Baw bucIi a

The Siocan Ex
A Comparison With Others at
The Nelson Fair.
I set mj'Belf to find out what is the
class of apple that generally took the
prize this year at the Nelson Fair, and
then I took one of lhe specimens off our
exhibit of that variety and held it close
against the plates that took first and
second prizes. There are several points
that must] be renisinbered which may
have disqualified any une or oilier of
the plates shown. For instance, the
judge was most pai ticular to pass over
any apples tbat did not have their steins
on, or any witli a bruise or blemish,
whilst a speck of scab would hopelessly
ruin the chances of any applcB, however
magnificent otherwise.
The reasons were these, and we eliall
do well to pay close attention to tbem:
Pulling off tbe stem ot nn apple always
leaves a slight wound whereby disease,
i.e., rot may enter, and no apple is
packed and shipped from Hood River
without a stem. A bruise or blemish
denotes carelessness and spoils the commercial value of an apple, whilst a speck
of scab shows that spraying haa been
neglected���about the blackest crime a
modern apple grower can be guilty of.
It is evident at once to anyone who
studies the exhibits that size is no recommendation; indeed it is very often a
demerit. There are exceptions; some
sorts like the Woolf River apple are
grown for their size and appearance and
havo a definite market value mainly on
that account, liko tho shopwalker whose
whiskers were considered by bis employer to be tbe most valuable part of
him.
Thit contest between the different
dtstricta perhaps gives the Nelson Fair
a fine appearance and stimulates healthy
rivalry, but the conditions of the contest are most unsatisfactory and tend to
do a good deal of barm. Instead of
concentrating our attention on growing
a few well selected varieties to perfection, it encourages US to grow a great
number of sorts, most of very little
value, some eo unsuited to our climate
and conditions that they are likely to be
weakly and diseased, and therefore,
sources of contagion to their neighbours.
Now I will discusB tho results as I saw
them, of taking an average apple from
our exhibit and comparing it with the
fruit shown for exhibition. To me the
result appeared most gratifying, and it
reflected the greatest credit on Mr. G.
Williamson, who did most of the work
in selecting our champions from the
fruit exhibited in tne Bosun Hall.
Wealthy.���There wero a number entered ; I think more than any other
variety. The first prize went to a plate
containing the four smallest shown.
They were wonderfully even and perfect and not so highly colored as our
exhibit. The seconds were a trifle larger
and redder. The judges must have had
a hard time to select the winners from
such a fine display.
Maiden's Blush.���Our exhibit appeared almost identical with the prize
winners when placed alongside. Ours
were certainly better tban the second
and as good as tlio first.
Du-hess.���Our apples were slightly
larger than tbe winners of the fii'Bt and
second prizes. In the Kaslo distiict exhibit there were Bomo beautiful specimens more deeply colored. In this class
also the smaller and more perfect and
even apples took the prize.
Our Whitney crabs were as large and
quite equal to the prize ones (there was
only one entry),
Our Giavensteins were larger than
either tbe first or second prize ones.
There was hot competition, and actually
what I considered the smallest shown,
took the prize.
Yellow Belle Flower.���Ours were a
good deal smaller than those which took
first prize, but about equal to the winners of tho second. Tho fir--t was remarkably fine and far ahead of tbe
second.
Our Woolf Rivers beat everything for
size aud appearance,
Our Lord Suffields were certainly the
biggest I saw tbere. Tbere was no class
for them, but a plate appeared amongst
the "other fall varieties."
Our Alexanders were just about equal
in size to the winners pf, the prize, but
I think ours were slightly belter colored,
Fall
The same appeared true of   the
Pippins.
There were a number of entries in the
"Ben Davis" class, but thc smallest got
the prize. Ours wero larger, being
about equal in size and appearance to
the winners of the second prize.
There were many entries amongst the
Northern Spies. Some medium sized
apples won the first and a smaller lot
captured the second prize, our being
ahout fifth.
Baldwins were well represented. Ours
appeared almost Identical with the win*
ners of lhe first prize. The second prize
was taken by some which were a good
deal smaller.
Our Wagners were very slightly larger, hut a less even lot than the winners
of the first piize. Here again the medium apple captured the prize. OurB
appeared to be equally well colored.
Golden Riusets.���There was great
variety amongst tbo apples shown iu
tliis class, and it appears tbat there are
three variations, all classed as Golden
Russet, viz.: Tlie French���small, with
a strong red glow on the stem ; tbe English, larger, greener, and rougher; the
American, or Mas-nchusets russet, medium size, brown, and rough. Tbe prize
went to four well colored little French
russets.
The largest specimens of Ontarios
shown took the prize. They were par-
ticulaily fine, well matched and even.
Mr. Porter, the judge, said that at
Hood River and throughout the States.
Ontaiios and Wagners are all considered
as practically identical and sold as Wagners. He said that here there certainly
seemed to be a decided difference.
A specimen from a plate of apples
(name unknown) contributed, I believe,
by Mr. Hoben, I took ts be Kings.
They were almost exactly eqaul in size
with the winners of the first prize, but
perhaps hardly as evenly colored. The
second prize was captured by some
rather larger apples, but I fancy our exhibit would bave beaten them.
Our Quinces were distinctly better
than any others at the and were much
admired. The judges evidently recognised two varieties of Quince.
Amongst the pears our Chapp's Favorite were almost exactly equal with the
winners of the first prize.
Idaho.���Ours were small and not
equal to the solitary plate 6bown.
Flemish Beauty.���There were several
entries. Ours were amongst the biggest, but the prize wns taken by some
tbat were medium size and well colored.
Thc second prize went to some that
were still smaller.
Tbere was a numerous entry amongst
the Bartlett class. Ours were almo-t
exactly similar to tho winner of the first
prize in color, size, shape, and all. I
compared them in the company of Mr.
Tomquier, of the Needles, Arrow Lake,
who won tbe first prize, and he agreed
that tbey could not be told apart. Medium size and good color took the prize.
We have every reason to feel proud of
our exhibit; of course we included some
specimens that would better have been
left at home, but in the main varieties
for tbe market we did well.
I had brought away a solitary apple
from Slocan City and it turned out to
be the best specimen of a Yellow Newtown Pippin at the show; in fact tbe
best apple of tbis valuable sort the
judge said be had seen in tbe country.
The tree it came from is growing iu Mr.
R. Kirkwood's garden at Slocan.

Farewell Social to Presbyterian Minister.
The friends of Rev. W. M. Chalmers
and Mrs. Chalmers met on Wednesday
evening in the Presbyterian church.
New Denver, at a farewell Bocial given
in their honor.
After a short opening address by Mr.
Gifford, who occupied the chair, solos
were rendered by Miss Cue and Mrs. A.
C. Brindle aud a quartette by Messrs.
Gifford, Brindle, Mrs. Rankine, nnd Mrs.
IJrindle; also a recitation by Earle Nel
son and a short dialogue by Mr, and
Mrs. Rankine.
Missionary Baynes and J. C. Harris
in short addresses, Bpoke in eulogistic
terms of thc good work accomplished
hy Mr. Chalmers during his pastorate,
and while expressing regret at bis departure, wished botli bim and MrB.
Chalmers success and happiness in the
future.
Mr. Chalmers, in responding, spoke
of the many difficulties of such a mission as this, wliich also involved a great
deal of travelling to the different districts, making it extremely difficult to
devote the necessary time to study and
the paying of personal visits to the par-
ishoners, and said he hoped to see a*
union between the Presbyterian and
Methodist churches. He concluded by
thanking the people for their kindness
to bim dm ing his stay amongst tbem
and for tbe assistance they had rendered
him.
After refreshments had been served a
vote of thanks was accorded Mr. Gifford
aild a most, enjoyable and pleasant evening was brought to a close with the singing of "Auld Lang Syne" and the giving
of three cheers and a "tiger" for Mr,

CHAPTER XVIII.
,��"r"**\OR three weeks the wind kept at
jJ-J     east or northeast, always at a
5*9^ brisk breeze and freshening
sometimes into half a gale.
The Golden Uud sped merrily upon her
way, with every sail drawing alow and
ii loft, so that hy the end of the third
v,eek Amos and Ephralm Savage were
reckoning out the hours before they
would look upou their native land once
more.
'Tomorrow we should make land by
my reckoning," snid Captain Savage.
"Ah, tomorrow! And what will it
be���Mount Desert, Cape Cod, Long Island?"
"Nay, Ind; we are In the latitude of
the St. Lawrence and are more likely
to see the Acadia coast. Then, with
this wind, n day should carry us south,
or two at the most. A few more such
vo.vuge*s, and I shall buy myself n fair
liriik house in Green lane of north Bos-
t in, where I can look down ou the
bay or on the Charles or the Mystic
and see tlie ships comln' and goin'. So
I would end my life In pence and
quiet."
The mate's watch that night was
from 12 to 4, and the moon was shining brightly for the first hour of It. In
the enrly morning, however, it clouded
over, nnd the Golden Rod plunged Into ono of those dim, clammy mists
which lie on nil Hint tract of ocean.
So thick was it that from the poop one
could just mnke out tho loom of tho
foresail, but could see nothing of the
foretopmnst staysail or the jib. The
wind was northeast, with a very keen
edge to It, aud the dainty brlgantiuo
lay over, scudding along trlth her lee
rails within hand's touch of the water.
It had suddenly turned very cold���so
cold that the mate stamped up and
down the poop, nnd his four seamen
shivered together under the shelter of
the bulwnrks. And then In a moment
one of them wns up, thrusting his forefinger Into the air nnd screaming,
whilo a huge white wall sprang out
of the darkness nt the very end of the
bowsprit, and the ship struck with a
force which snapped her two masts
like dried reeds iu n wind and changed
her ln nn Instant to a crushed and
shnpclcss heap of spnrs and wreckage.
The mate had shot the length of the
poop at the shock nnd had narrowly
escaped from tho falling mast, while
of his four men two had been hurled
through the huge gap which yawned
ln the bows, while a third had dashed
his head to pieces against the stock
of the anchor. Tomlinson staggered
forward to find the whole front part
of the vessel driven Inward and a single seaman sitting dazed amid splintered spars, flapping sails and writhing, lashing cordage. It was still as
dark as pitch, nnd, save the white
crest of a leaping wave, nothing was
to be seen beyond the side of the vessel. Tbe mate was peering round hlm
In despair nt the ruin which had come
so suddenly upon them, when ho found
Captain Ephrnlm nt his elbow, half
clad, but as wooden and serene as
ever.
"An iceberg," snld he, sniffing at tha
chill air. "Did you not smell it, friend
Tomlinson?"
"Truly I found it cold, Captain Savage, but I set it down to the mist."
"There ls a mist over set around
them, though the Lord In his wisdom
knows best why, for It Is a sore trial
t;> poor sudor men. Sho makes wnter
fast, Mr. Tomlinson."
The other watch had swarmed upon
dock, nnd one of them was measuring
the well. "There Is three feet of water," he cried, "and the pumps sucked
dry yesterday!"
"Hiram Jefferson nnd John Moreton,
(o the pumps!" cried the captain. "Mr.
Tomlinson, clear away the longboat
nud let us see if we may set her
right!"
"The longboat hns stove two planks!"
cried n seaman.
"The jolly boat, then!"
"She Is In three pieces."
"Where ls Amos Green?"
"Here, Cnptnln Ephrnlm. What can
I do?"
"And I?" nsked De Cntinnt eagerly.
Adele nnd her father had been wrapped In mnnlles and placed for shelter
In the lea of the roundhouse.
"Tell hlm that he can take his spell
nt the pumps," snld the captain to
Amos. "And you, Amos, you nre a
handy man with n tool. Get Into yonder longboat with a lantern."
For half an hour Amos Green hammered nnd trimmed and calked.
"You've not much time, Amos lad,"
said the captain quietly.
"She'll float no\v,( though she's not
quite water light."
"Very good. Lower awny. Keep up
the [lumping there. Mr. Tomlinson, see
that provisions nnd water are rendy.
ns much as she will hold. Come with
me, Hiram Jefferson."
The seaman and the captain swung
themselves down Into the tossing boat,
tho latter with a lantern strapped to
his wnlst. Together they made their
way until they were under her mangled bows. The captain shook his head
when he saw the extent of the dam-
uge. "Cut nway the foresail and pass
It over," said he.
Tomlinson nnd Amos Green cut
nwny tbe lashings with their knives
and lowered the corner of the sail. Captain Ephralm nud the seaman seized It
und dragged It across the mouth of tbe
huge gaping leak. "How much In tbe

"Five and a half feet."
"Then the ship is lust. I conld put
my finger between her plunks as fnr
ns I can see buck. Keep the pumps
���voing there! Have you the food and
water, Mr. Tomlinson?"
"Here, sir."
"Lower them over the bows. This
boat cannot live more than an hour or
two. Can you see anything of tbe
berg?"
The mist hud thinned away suddenly,
nud the moon glimmered through once
itore upou the great lonely sea and
the stricken ship. There, like a huge
sail, wns the monster piece of Ice upon I

~lovt must make for her," said Captain Ephraim. "There ls no other
chance. Lower the gal over the bows.
Well, then, her father first, ff she likes
it better. Tell them to sit still, Amos,
and tbat the Lord will benr us up if
we keep clear of foolishness. So!
You're a brave lass for all your nim-
iny pimluy lingo. Now tbe keg nnd
the bane! and all tbe wraps and cloaks
you can find; now the other man, the
Frenchman. Aye, aye, passengers flrst,
nnd you have got to come! Now Amos,
now the seamen, and you last, friend
Tomlinson."
It was well thnt they had not very
far to go, for the boat was weighted
down almost to the edge, aud it took
the bailing of two men to keep iu
check the water which leaked in between the shattered planks. Wheu nil
were safely iu their places Captain
Ephralm Savage swung himself aboard
again, which was but too easy now
that every minute brought the bows
nearer to tbe water. He came back
with a bundle of clothing, which he
threw into tbe boat! "Push off!" he
cried.
"Jump In, then."
"Ephraim Savage goes down with his
Bhlp," said be quietly. "Friend Tomlinson, It is not my wny to give my
orders more than once. Tush off, I
sny!"
Tbe mnte thrust her out with n bont
hook. Amos Green nnd De Cntinnt
gave n cry of dismay, but the stolid
New Englanders settled down to their
oars and pulled off.
"The boat leaks like a sieve," said
the mate. "I will take her to the berg,
leave you nil there If wo can find footing und go back for the captain."
But they had uot taken fifty strokes
before Adele gave a sudden screnm.
"My God!" she cried. "The ship Is going down!"
She bud settled lower and lower ln
the wnter, nnd suddenly, with a sound
of rending plunks, she thrust down
her bows like a diving waterfowl, her
stem flew up Into the air, and with a
long sucking noise she shot down
swifter nnd swifter, until the leaping
waves closed over her high poop lantern. Willi ono impulse the bont swept
round again and made backward ns
fast ns willing arms could pull It. But
nil wns quiet nt the scene of the disaster. Not oven a fragment of wreckage wns left upon the surfuce to show-
where the Golden Bod had found her
last harbor. For n long quarter of an
hour they pulled round nnd round In
tho moonlight, but no glimpse could
they see of the Puritan seaman, and nt
last, when in spite of tho bailers the
water was washing round their nnkles,
they put her head about once more
and made their way in silence nnd
with heavy hearts to their dreary
island of refuge.
Desolate ns it was, it was their only
hope now, for the loud wus Increasing,
and it wns evident that the bont could
not be kept afloat long.
Tho cliff which faced them was precipitous, and it glimmered and sparkled all over where the silver light fell
upon the thousand facets of ice. Right
in the center, however, on a level with
the water's edge, tbere was wbat nppenred to be a huge hollowed out cave,
whicli marked the spot where the
Golden Rod had, In shattering herself,
dislodged a huge bowlder, and so,
amid her own ruin, prepared a refuge
for those who had trusted themselves
to her. This cavern wns of the richest emerald green, light and clear at
tho edges, but toning nway Into the
deepest purples and blues nt the bnck.
But it wns not tlio beauty of this
grotto, nor wns it the nssurnnce of
rescue, which brought a cry of joy
nnd of wonder from every lip, but it
wns thnt, seuted upon an ice bowlder
and placidly smoking a long corncob
pipe, there wns perched In front of
them no less a person thnn Captain
Ephraim Savage of Boston.
"Friend Tomlinson," said he, "when
I tell you to row for nn iceberg I mean
you to row right nwny there, d'ye see,
and not to go philandering nbout over
tho ocenn. It's not your fault that
I'm not froze, and so I would have
been If I hadn't some dry tobacco and
my tinder box to keep myself warm."
Without stopping to answer his commander's reproaches' the mnte headed
for the ledge, w'hicli hnd been cut In'-
a slope by the bow of the brlgantlne, H
thnt thc bout wus run up easily on to
the ice. Captain Ephrnlm seized hli
dry clothes aud vanished iuto the buck
of the cuve, to return presently warmer
in body and more contented In mind.
The longboat had beeu turned upside
down for n sent, tbe gratings nnd
thwarts taken out nnd covered with
wraps to make a couch for the lady,
nnd the head knocked out of the keg
of biscuits.
"We were much frightened for you,
Ephralm," suid Amos Green. "I had ���
heavy heart this night when I thought
thut I should never see you more."
"Tut, Amos; you should huvo known
me better."
"But how came you here, captain?"
asked Tomlinson. "I thought that maybe you bud been taken down by the
suck of the ship."
"And so I wus. It Is the third ship
in which I bnve gone down, but they
huve never kept me down yet.   I went
Seated upon an Ice bowlder and. placidly smoking a I ng corncob pipe.
deeper tonight tbun when the Speedwell sank, but not so deep as In the
Governor Wlnthrop. When I came up
I swum to the berg, found this nook
and crawled In. Glad I was to see you,
for I feared that you hud foundered."
"Wa out back to nick you ua iuid
we passed you ln tne darkness. ��� JHid
whut should we do now?"
"Rig up that boat sail and make-
quarters for tbe gal, then get our supper and such rest as we can, for then
is nothing to be done tonight."
In the morning Amos Green was
aroused by a hand upon his shoulder
and, springing to his feet, found De
Catlnat standing beside bim. The lat-
ter's face was grave, and bis friend
read danger In his eyes.
"What is it, then?"
"The berg. It Is coming to pieces. 1
have been watching it. You see thai
crack which extends backward from
the end of our grotto? Two hours ngo
I could scarce put my hand into it
Now I can slip through it with ease."
Amos Green walked to the end of ths
funnel shaped recess and found, ns his
friend had said, that a green sinuous
crack extended away backward into
the iceberg, caused either by the tossing of the waves or by the terrific impact of their vessel. He roused Captain
Ephralm and pointed out the danger to
him.
"Well, if she springs a leak we are
gone," said ho. "She's been thawing
pretty fast as It is."
They could see now that the whole
huge muss was brittle and honeycombed aud rotteu.
"Hello!" cried Amos Green. "What's
that? I could have sworn thnt I heard
��� voice."
"Impossible.   We nre nil here."
"It must hnve been iny fancy, then."
Cuptuln Ephralm walked to the seaward face of the cave and swept tlie
ocean with his eyes. "We should lie
III tho track of some ships," snid he.
"There's the codders nnd the herring
busses. We're ovcrfnr soutli for them,
I reckon. But we can't be more'n 200
mile from Port Royal, ln Acadia, and
we're In the line of the St. Lawrence
trade.   Whnt Is It, Amos?"
Tbo young hunter was standing with
his ear slnntlug, his head bent forward,
and his eyes glancing sidewise, like a
man who listens Intently. He was
about to answer when De Catlnat gave
a cry and pointed to the back of the
cave.
"Look at tho crack now!"
It had widened by a foot since thoy
had noticed It last until It was now no
longer a crack.   It wns a pass.
"Let us go through," said tlie captnin.
He led the way, and the other twe
followed him. It was very dark as
they advanced, with high dripping ice
walls on either side nnd one little zigzagging slit of blue sky above their
heads. Tripping nnd groping their
wny, they stumbled nlong until suddenly the passage grew wider and
opened out Into a large square of flat
Ice. The berg wns level In the center
and sloped upward from that point to
the. high cliffs which hounded It on
each side. With one Impulse they began nil three to clamber up until, a
minute luter, they were stundlng not
far from tho edge of the summit, seventy feet above the sea.
Amos Green looked about hlm with
startled eyes. "I cannot understand
it," said he. "I could have sworn���by
the eternnl, listen to that!"
The clear cull of a military bugle
rang out lu the morning nir. With a
cry of amazement they all throe craned
forward nnd peered over the edge.
A large ship wns lying under the
very shadow of the Iceberg, They
looked straight dowu upon her snow
white decks, fringed with shining brass
cannon and dotted with seamen. A
little clump of soldiers stood upon the
poop, going through tin* manual exercise, nnd It wns from tbem that ths
call hud come which had sounded s.
unexpectedly in the ours or the cast
awnys. Standing back fiom the edge.
;hey hud not only looked over the top-
musts of this welcome neighbor, but
they had themselves heen invisible
from her decks. .Now tbe discovery
wus mutual, ns wus shown liy n chorus of shunts and cries from beneath
diem.
But the throe did not wait nn in-
stunt. sliding and* scrambling down
the slippery Incline, they rushed, shouting, through the crack and into the
cave, where their comrades hud just
been startled by the bugle call while
lu the middle of their cheerless breakfast. A few hurried words nud the
leaky longboat had beeu launched,
their few possessions had beeu bundled In nnd they were nfloat once more.
Fulling round n promontory of the berg,
they found themselves under the stern
of a fine corvet, the sides of whicli
were lined with friendly faces, while
from the peak there drooped n huge
white banner mottled over with the
golden lilies of France. In a very
few mluutes their bont hnd been hauled up, nnd they found themselves on
board of the St. Chi'istopbe, mnn-of-
war, conveying Marquis de Denon-
vllle, Hie governor general of Canada,
to take over his new duties.

HER  FIRST  SPEECH.
It Wasn't the One She Learned, but
It Won the Crowd.
It was the flrst appearance In public
if Ada C. Sweet of Cbicngo, United
States commissioner of pensions under
President Grant nnd one of the flrst
women in the movement for equal political rights for tbe sexes. When the
civil war broke out she was living with
her parents in the village of Lombard,
now a suburb of Chicago, and was
chosen to present to the boys of the
Lombard company a silk ting whlcb the
women of the place hud made wltb
their own fair hands.
The literary woman of the, village
had written for the occasion a beautiful presentation speech, In whlcb tbe
soldiers were adjured to "take the fair
flag into which your wives, daughters
and sweethearts have sewed fond hopes
and tearful prayers for your safe return, carry It through tbe smoke and
shell of battle free from the stain of
dishonor and tbe rents of defeat and
bear it home victorious at the end of
the war."
"I thought," says Miss Sweet, "that
I bad learned thnt piece up and down,
backward and forward, inside and out,
but on the grent day Itself, wben the
band ceased playing and an awful
hush fell upon the crowd and every
face wns turned expectantly up to
mine, it wns different. I opened my
mouth���and paused. Tlie literary lady
crenked forward, ln her cbnlr nnd whispered loudly, 'Soldiers of Lombard'���
"That whisper went through me like
a knife, but left me still speechless. I
set my teeth, stepped decisively forward and pushed the flag into the
hnnds of tlie nearest soldier. Then I
spoke. Every word of that speech had
left me, but I knew whnt It meant.
" 'Soldiers of Lombard,' I snld In a
desperate voice that must hnve been
heard to tbe utmost confines of the
crowd, 'here's your flag! Don't get It
dlrtyl Don't tear It! And be sure to
bring It. back I'
"A shout rose from that crowd such
as no orator before or since has ever
evoked from a crowd in those parts.
The first thing I knew I wnsjddlng on
the shoulders of two soldiers, while
the whole company pressed about me,
with waving hats, and my father was
leaning over townrd me from the back
of his big horse and calling me his
'own original girl,' while the tears
rolled dowu his cheeks with laughter.
"As long as I lived ln the village of
Lombard I never dared to meet squarely the vengeful eyes of the literary lndy
who hnd written that presentation
speech."
THE ART OF GARGLING.
Not  the  Same Thing  as the   Process
Usually Followed.
The proper method of gurgling is
thus described by a writer tu tbe Medical Record:
"The patient (nt first uuder the guidance of a physician) should sit well
back In a chair, tuke a swallow of wnter in tbe mouth und bend the head as
far bnck ns possible,
"Now he must protrude tbe tongue
from the mouth (tbe tip of the tongue
may be grasped with a handkerchief)
and In this posture with protruding
tongue he must try to swallow tbe wa
ter. The physician should control the
patient's vniu efforts, for it Is Impossible to swallow under such clrcum
stances.
"Tbe patient has the sensation as 11
he actually had swallowed the water.
Now be must start to gargle, to exhale
air slowly. One can see plainly the
bubbling of the fluid In the wide open
pharynx.
"After gargling thus for awhile the
patient Is ordered to close tbe mouth
and quickly throw head and body for
ward. Thereby nil the fluid is forced
through the choniiue and nostrils,
wushlug the throat uud nose from be
hind nnd expelling nil the nccuiuulu
tions that had been present wltb great
force.
"This should he repented several
times, ns the first trial is not always
successful and satisfactory, It ls an
act that must be learned.
"When properly executed the sensn
tion, as the patient will assure you. Is
tbat of grent relief not hud by nny
other method. It will be wise for the
practitioner to try the method lirst on
himself. Even small children who am
at all clever iearil the method readily
and rather enjoy it."

"I hum astonished, 1 hum surprised,

Their  Object  to  Supply  Timber  and
Conserve   Water.
A forest reserve is not nu area i f
forest lnnd where no trees whatever
nro allowed to bo cut. The object ill
setting aside the land for the reserve
is not to prohibit ciitling altogether
but rather to regulate the cutting nnd
generally to treat the forest so that :i
continuous crop of timber may he taken off the urea, instead of having it
out over once or perhaps twice and
then  left  waste.
Experience in other lands has demonstrated that such a continuous crop
of forest trees can be grown, and the
setting aside of forest reserves is one
of the first steps taken in the introduction of such a policy in this country. Crop nfter crop can be taken
off the snme area���of course at widely separated intervals, for half a century is a. short period to allow for u
crop of timber to mature.
The primary object of a forest reserve is thus to provide for a perpetual supply of timber. Another
important object of tlio reserves is io
protect the water supply, both the
domestic supply for towns nnd cities
und also the supply to he used for the
generation of power. The effect of
forests nt the headwaters of streams
is to regulate the flow so ns to make
it constant throughout the year���not a
torrent in spring and a nearly dried*
up strenm-bed in the heat of summer.
to be valuable as a source of power
a stream must furnish a constant
and regular supply of water. Very
low water in a stream from which n.
town or city derives its water supply
has often meant a great deal of sickness, (perhaps in the form of nn epidemic), for the people of that place.
Where the forest is, the snow melts
more gradually in the spring, nnd the
rains of spring and summer soak into flio ground, wliich acts like n
sponge, and flow off more gradually
than whore the forest is removed.
In hilly und mountainous regions
the cutting off of the forests has often
led to the washing away of the soil.
This has made it impossible fnr the
forests to grow ngnin, und moreover
has led to tho silting up of tho rivers
in the valleys, which mnde necessary
tlie expenditure of large sums in
dredging them out ngain. Good examples of this may bo seen in the
neighborhood of the Appalachian
Mountains in the United States.
Some reserves nre important as
well in furnishing recreation for tho
people, but the two essential objects
of the reserves, nre those of providing for n perpetual crop of timber
and of protecting the water supply
for power and domestic use.

Both of these result from the use
of Dr.A.W. Chase's Nerve Food. Even
though you know of this great restorative as a cure for nervous exhaustion, prostration and paralysis,
you may have overlooked it as a tome
to build up the system when it gets
run down and you feel weak and miserable.

The Witness Had Been Mixed Up In s

keenly at the witness who was testify

if I understood you correctly," he said,
"is Horace Hinscy.   Is that right?"
"Yes, sir."
"Did you ever live In Nashua?"'
"Yes, sir."
"Mr. HInsey, have you ever been arrested on a criminal charge?"
"No, sir!" indignantly answered the
witness.    "Never!"
"Did you ever commit an offense for
which you might justly have been arrested?"
"Never, sir!"
"Mr. Hhisey, is It not a fact that yon
once stole from your own father?"
Here the attorney for lhe prosecution
Interposed, but the witness chose te
answer.
"No, sir!" he exclaimed. "Never Id
my life!"
"Now, Mr. HInsey," said the lawyer,
"suppose 1 should tell you that I knew
of a case when you did steal from youi
father."
Instantly the witness' brow cleared.
"Gentlemen," be snld, turning to the
jury, "he's right. 1 remember now.
When I was ulioiit eight years old I
stole half a dozen eggs from my father's grocery store, took them down

Movemeris That Always Precede the
Animal's Spring.
A lion's first signs of anger are as
follows: Its tail rapidly twists from
side to side, the bottom slightly raising
and the black tassel at the end beating the air. It lowers its head more
than usual and growls, at intervals
showing Its teeth. Then its voice becomes louder. It roars, shows its teeth
and lowers its cars, the movements of
the tall Increasing all the time.
At the time of cburgiiis- that Is,
ut the height of Its anger���the tall rises
In the nir until It ls almost vertical, tbe
black tassel continues to move, the
ears are flattened completely, nnd the
animal comes toward you nt a slow
trot, then at a gallop, and finally
springs forward with open mouth and
extended claws.
Sometimes It shows these various
symptoms without charging, restrained
by prudence, but It never charges without showing them. When tbe tail rises
lhe hunter can bring bis rifle fo the
shoulder and await his opportunity. In
hunting a man who is on his guard Is
worth four.
A charge Is extremely dangerous, almost always fatal when unexpected,
either because of the dense vegetation
or other causes, but If you see the animal getting ready flight Is useless.
Stand your ground. The only thing to
do is to keep cool and trust in your
wcupou. If you bave no confidence in
yourself it is prudent to avoid measuring your strength ngalust these animals.���Exchange.

How the Cow Helped Australia.
"Corn is king in America and the
cow is queen in Australia," remarked
R. J. Guthrie, agricultural editor of
the Sydney Mail. "The cow has redeemed the country, and hundreds of
farmers who lost nearly all they hid
by the drought of 1902 are now better
off than they ever were, and it is all
due to the cow. Australia butter ranks
well ui> with the best butter in the
world.
"Our butter-making is all done by
the co-operative creamery system.
It has been yenrs since the farmer
mnde butter on the farm. We have
little use for a dual purpose cow in
Australia. Thnt is, the dairy farmer
wants a cow that will give milk ten
months in the year and he uses it for
no other purpose, while those who

THE   STAR   ON   THE   CROSS.
Plans For a Church That Wera Revised by the Kaiser.
Emperor William is thc busiest maa
ln Germany. Temperamentally, 1 take
it. President Roosevelt resembles liim
much, but the kali ���**> Is the more versatile of tbe two. If there is anything
going on in the empire that the kaiser
does not find an opportunity to tnke a
huck at it has escaped the notice of
those who watch him closely. He revises all public findings, supervises all
srehitecture, lectures everybody and
is a general all around little father ia
���very sense of the term.
When they wnnt to illustrate his
ceaseless activity us well us his resistless power they tell the story of the
star above the cross on the spire of tbe
Emperor William Memorial church.
This is the tale as it was told to me:
Of course the kaiser Insisted on revising the plans of the church. That Is
one of his fondest prerogatives���rev 1��*
iny everything, aud especially plans.
Tbe architect brought the plans to him,
and the kaiser scratched out what he
didn't like and mnde sueh additions
ns he fancied beforo he gnve them tbe
Imperial O. It. The church was built.
There was to^. be a big gilt cross on
the spire, and it nppenred In Its proper
place. But, much to the general astonishment, when the cross was put up i
large, many pointed gold star was
raised above It on a heavy rod. The
Berllners could not understand tbe
star. They Inquired. The architect
said the kaiser hnd added the star to
tho plans.
The plans wero examined. Then It
was found thnt in revising them the
kaiser hnd lot fall a drop of Ink from
his pen, which hit the paper just above
the cross. The architect studied a long
time over this blot of Ink. His Teutonic mind grappled with the problem
for weeks. There was no nppenl.
There could be no Inquiries. He finally
decided the blot of ink signified a star
above the cross, and he put the star
there, making it to correspond ns nearly as possible with the outlines of tbe
blot. The star is Rtill there.���Samuel

A chance to appoint tbe chief justice does not come often to a president.
In point of fact, since the foundation

only eight chief justices, and since

1, 179C.

From this list it will bo seen thnt
Chief Justice Fuller Is exceeded in the
length of his term only by famous
John Marshall, who did so much to

A woman needs a blood building
medicine regularly just because she is
a woman. From maturity to middle
life, the health and happiness i f
every woman depends upon tier
blood, its richness and its regularity.
If her blood is poor and watery she
is weak, languid, pale and nervous.
If her blood supply is irregular she
suffers from headaches, backaches,
sideaches nnd the other unspeakable
distress which only women know.
Some women have grown to expect
this suffering at regular intervals
and to bear it in hopeless silence.
But women would escape much tl
this misery if they took -a box cr two
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to help
them over each criticnl period. These
Pills actually make new blood. They
help a woman just when nature makes
the greatest demand upon her blood
supply. They have done this for thousands of women throughout Cnnuda,
why not for you?
Mrs. Joseph Kinney, Gilbert's Cove.
N. S., says:���"For ten years I suffered from nervousness and those
troubles that make tho lives of so
many women one of utmost constunt
misery. At times I would bo confined to my bed for weeks. I spent
sleepless nights and seemed to lose
nil courage. I tried several doctors
but they failed to give mo any :e-
licf. The Inst doctor I consulted told
me frankly that he could not undertake my case unless I would undergo
an examination. Tt was then I decided to givo Dr. Willinms' Pink Pillf
a trial. After taking six boxes I was
much improved in health, but I continued to tnke the pills for a couple
of months more when I felt like a
now woman, and wns enjoying such
health as I hud not experienced for
ten years before. I have had no return of this trouble since, but I have
used the Pills once since that time
for the after effects of la grippe and
the result was all I hoped for. These
are plain facts from my own experience and I have nlways felt that I
cannot too strongly recommend Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills to the many women who suffer as I did."

It is now over fifty years ago since
peace and order were restored in India, after the great Mutiny, and in
the thrilling story of how the revolt of
100,000 native troops was crushed by
some 40,000 European soldiers under
Lawrence and Campbell, the name of
"The Guides" looms large. The lat
ter were a corps formed in 1846 by
8ir Henry Lawrence, who, at a time
when soldiiTB fought, marched, and
lived in tight scarlet tunics, high
stocks, trouBcrs tightly strapped ovei
Wellington boots, and shakos which
would now be looked upon as almost
certain death, decided to raise a troop
of comfortably and suitably clad boI
diere��� trustworthy men who could, at
a moment's notice, act as guides in
the field, collect intelligence, and, in
addition, give and take hard blows.
Martinets of tlie old school gravely
shook their heads end trembled for
the discipline of men without stock*1
and overalls, sayB Col. G. J. Young-
husband, C.B., in his "Story of the
Guides." But, without exaggeration,
it may be said that no body of Brit
ish troop3 have, in tha history of the
Empire, displayed greater courage
and more ready obedience at all tunc*!
than "Tlie Guides," in spite of thi
fact that tliey were recruited from ��
greut number of different tribes.
Their first command *r was Sir Harry Ltimsdon, a scion of a line old sol
dior stock in Aberdeenshire, Scotland,
who was idolized by his men This
devotion is well illustrated hy the
following incident One duy Sir John
Lawrence suid something to nnno>
Lumsdnn, and this became evident to
the faithful fellows who were ready to
riiBh into any danger at hia order. In
tho evening an orderly came to Luiiib
den   secretly,   and   s^id:
"It is only this, sahib; I and mj
comrades noticed that the Lord Sahit
spoke to-duy words that were noi
ploasing to your Excellency, aud that
you were angry and displeased when
jy>u heard them. So wo have consult
ed together as to how b st we ma)
serve the proper end; for it is not
right and proper that wc should allo\
our colonel sahib to be harshly spol.
cn to by anyone. There is, therefore
this alternative: the Lord 8;ihib ha<
arranged lo leave by the straight road
to-monow morning for Peshawar, bu:
with your honor's kind permissioi
and by tho grace of God there is ni
reason whatever why he should evci
roach  it!"
One of the most famous feats ac
rornplishcd by the corps was thei]
march to Delhi during the Indiai
Mutiny, at a time v.hrn their arriva
exercised a great moral effect on th*
force they came lo assist. In the hot
tost season ol the your nnd throng!
the hottest region on earth they march
ed 580 miles in just over twcnty-oii*
days ��� nn average of twenty-sevci
miles a day���and when they wcr*
asked, at the end of llieir tremendoui
march, how soon they would be read;,
to go Into action, the r*ply was: "I.
half an hour." Such was thc fight
ing spirit of "The Guides" but tc:
years after they had been formed.
Perhaps the most striking exploi*
of "The Guides" is the story of hov
a handful of "Guides" cultured th*
formidable fortress of Gorindgar, to
gether with seventy guns and a regi
merit of infantry, with little or no los*
lo themselves.
"A native commissioned pfBoei
with a party of tho Guides, appeared
before the gates, bringing, as it seem*
od, three prisoners. On the ground
that the prisoners were desperate ruf
flans, with n price on their heads, hi
gained admittance, asking that the.
might be shut up in the guard-house*
during thc nifeht. Though at first be
met with some suspicion he contrived
to gain the trust of tho governor
Leaving a couple of men to assist in
guarding the prisoners, he remained
with his force outside. But durin.
the night these two men overpowered
the sentries, sot free the throe im.
prisond mon, and with their assist
��ncc opened the gates to the Guides
who gained a firm footing ip the fort
before the garrison knew what wat
happening."
It was "The Guides" who furnished
an escort of some seventy men to
Cavagnari's mission to Kabul in 1879
and were massacred to a man. In the
fourth sortie from the Residency the
last Englishman was killed. Knowing
this to be the case, the enemy called
on the remainder of "Tha Guides"
to surrender, promising them their
lives.
"Left in command was Jemadni
Jewand Singh, a splendid Sikh offi
eer of the Guides' Cavalry, and not
one whit behind his British officer ir.
brave resolve. He deigned no word
of answer to the howling crowd with
out, but to the few brave survivor*-
within, perhaps a dozen or so, he
said: 'The sahibs gave us this duty
to perform, la defend this Residency
to the last. Shall we then disgraci
the cloth we wear by disobeying theii
orders now they are dead? Shall wf
hand over the property of the Sirkar
jnd the dead boil ies of our officers, to
these sons * of perdition? I for one
perfer to die fighting for duty and
the f inie of the Guides, and they thai
will do likewise follow me.'" And
they marched out to die.
"Tho annals of no army and no
regiment can show n brighter record
if devoted biuveiy than has been
ichii'ved by this small band of
Guides." So rends thn inscription cm
the memorial at Murdan, which the
British Government raiaed in memory
jf Kabul.

Bees In a Church.
For more than twenty years a
swarm of bees has been in the roof
nf the nave of Iiicld Parish Church,
England.
They have lately abused the hospitality shown them by coming inside
the building, and even stinging a
member of the choir, ns well ns annoying the vicar while ho was in th(
pulpit. A week ngo they entered the
church in hundreds, and their dead
bodies covered the floor.
A bee expert has since been called
in, and after removing a portion of
the roof he succeeded in carrying off
the whole colony in a hive. The vicar
said: "I part with them without regret."
How George Eliot Wrote Novels.
The famous authoress George Eliot
was very particular about her surroundings when she was engaged on a
aovel. She exercised the greatest caro
over her dress and insisted tbat everything in her beautiful study "was in
perfect order. She displayed none of
the modern writers' feverish energy
and seldom wrote more than sixty lines
n day. Directly she finished a novel
she was n victim to terrible nervous
Bxhnustion in such nn ncuto form that
Inly a trip to Italy or France effected
l cure to her normal condition-

Sir Hotter de Covorle*.-.
Ralph Thoresby, writing in 1717 of
thu family .of Calverley ot Colverley,
Yorkshire, says: "Roger was a person
of renowned hospitality, since at this
timo the obsolete tune ot 'Roger a
Calverley' is referred to him. He was
a knight and lived in the time of Richard I." This passage carries the date
of the origin of the tune hack to ahout
1100. The Spectator in a description of
Sir Roger, now called "de Coverley,"
says, "His great-grandfather was the
inventor of the famous country dance
which is called after him."
A Hatter ol Doubt.
A. minister in a certain city said: "My
brethren, the collection will now be
tuken for my expenses for n trip, for I
am going uwuy for my health. The
more I receive the longer I can stay."
The largest collection ever made in
that church was taken. And now the
question under discussion is whether
the size of tho collection was a compliment to the preacher or much the reverse.
Mnxlm. For All Pnrpo-M,
'���"Remember, my son," said the prudent man, "that a penny saved is a
penny earned."
"That's so," replied the reckless
youth. "The trouble with mo is thut I
nm always getting hold of the wrong
proverb. I was thinking, 'Nothing
venture, nothing have.'"

Jewelry and Muffle.
Finger rlugs, earrings, bracelets,
brooches and other articles of personal
ndornment originated not from the ics-
thetlc uense of our remote ancestors,
but from their belief in magic. Even
civilized men today sometimes entertain a superstitious regard for small
stones and pebbles of peculiar shape or
color und carry them about as charms.
'The Greeks and Asiatics used stones,
beads and crystals primarily as amulets nnd cut devices on them to enhance their magical power. The use of
such stones ns seals was secondary
und muy st flrst have been for snered
purposes only. When a primitive people flrst find gold they value It only
for Its supposed magic and wear nuggets of it strung with beads.

One remembers how on the 15th of
June, 1215, King John signed the great
charter of the constitutional freedom
ot Britain and he/* after he had signed
it he flung himself ln a burst of fury
en tbe floor and gnawed the straw and
rushes with which the floors of those
days were strewn. Now, what was
"charta?" Originally nothing moro or
less than a sheet of papyrus strips
glued together as writing paper. So It
is to the Egyptian reed that we owe
our "charters," "charts," "cards,"
"cartes" (blancho nnd do vislte), our
"cartoons" and our "cartridges."���London Chronicle.

The temple nt Kpldnurus wns founded by Antoninus Plus at the end of the

Beyond the sacred inclosure was a
