New Denver Carnival.
There was a good sized crowd at tlie
Skating rink at Denver ou Saturday
night, and a record attendance would
have been made, had La Grippe not
been playing havoc in town for the
past week. The ice was in Buperb condition and the merry masquerading
throng thoroughly enjoyed itself. There
were also a fair number ol sightseers,
and these also took great interest in the
judging of the pri2e winners. The rink
boys are to be congratulated on the
success of the evening.
The prise winners were as follows;

THE MAN WHO BROUGHT B.C. FROM RUIN TO PROSPERITY.
On the Nomination Paper of Mr.
Archibald Bonn Docksteader, appears
as proposer, the name of Robt. Hilchey,
Slocan, miner. This is the gentleman
who, professing an interest in Socialism,
aad a desire to obtain l'ght on the
question of his alleged politie.il perplexities, wormed his w*y into the
Labor Convention held ree-ently in New
Denver. Mr. Docksteader must be hard
pushed f >r support when he would
nermit the sign manual of a spy to
' shine so prominently ou his nomination
*-l>apcr. Premier McBiido will have
the privilege of expending hisimmuhved
d��posit on the public needs ut the
riding.       	
l)r R. R. Robinson was a visitor to
Bandon yesterday on professional business. Dr. Robinson has for tbe past
four ye*,re followed his vocation 'in the
Lardeau, and for three years was located
at Trout Lske. From tin re he w*nt lo
Ferguson, where* ho had received the
appointment of house-surgeon to the
Miners' Union hospital. He has now
succeeded Dr. Ha:tin, o! Kash*, and
in future will conduct a private practise
there. Wo are pleased to note thnt
this clever mrdco has cast hi his lot
with Iho "Queen City," We know that
it must have been a hard struggle f ir
(lie people of the Lardeau to let him go,
and wc only hope that Kaslo will use
an extremely white man white. Doc,
though young in years, has had a more
vaiied experience than the majority
of his colleagues. Ho was for several
year, doctor ou the s.s. Aroangl-, which
plyed between Vancouver and Australian ports. He also received a large
remuneiation te accompany the Cana-
dion troops to South Africa and the experience be gained in medical and hui-
gcry work at tlie front should establish
him in the confidence of Kaslo people
and the surrounding districts.
The  followiug effusion  appeared in
the Nelson News of a recent issue:
GREEN'S  LAMENT
"I am dvinr, Kus'n, dying.
And my job it fades away,
For they've    trailed   my    pointed
whisker
In the red hot consomme.
'I followed Dickie blindly,
Did his bidding like a chump;
Now for me the gory basket
Where my Lead falls with  a bump.
" A press of private business,"
And it's mc to the tall, sad woods;
And my job it goes a-begging
For some man that's got the goods.
���J. F. Bledsoe.
Our correspondent "Nemesis' waxes
also facetious . witli the appended
trifle, which wo publish without comment.
KASLO'S ANSWER.
They are lying, Kaslo, lying
When they blackmail   honest "Bob"
They con trail his pointed   whisker,
And they'd like to trail his job.
They can howl ard scream and chortle
In tlie good old Liberal way,
But tilde's not a Grit among them
Who can skin young Neil McKay.
They can fling their dirty mud-balls
They can vent tlu-ir filthy spleen
But"they'll have to do some scratching
For the money "hiewed" by Keen.
On the "second" there'll lie someone,
Wallowing ill the "consomme,"
And its dollars up to doughnuts
That it won't be Neil McKay.
"A press of private business"
Is true of R. P. Green,
And the riding's going  to back  bis
words
skinning Hot Air Keen.
���''Nemesis."

HON. RICHARD MoBRiDE, PREMIER.
err IHE Iristo y of British Columbia
V!/ f.,r the past eight years is the
history of.'Riohitfd MeBride, the
most consp'ciior.s figure in the
public life ot tho province dur
thnt time.
Richard MeBride was bom in No*
Westminster iu 1870, and educated nt
the public and high schools of his native
city and at ihe law sclnol of Palhousie
university, Halifax, from which he
graduate 1 at the age of 20. Two ycur-
later he began the practice of law.
In 1S9-, just before the Dominion
general elections, G. K. Cnrbauld, Conservative member for New Westminster district, decided i ot to i Und for
re-election. Aulcy���now Mr, Justice
Monison, had already made a thorough
co'.iva.n as candid te ill the Liberal in-
tc*re->t. At tlu* last moirien" Mi*. Mc-
Bri lo stepped into tlie breach and made
a gallant light in what was already a
lost b.itilo.
Though defeated in that contest he
made so f.voi'ttblo nn impression
throughout tho -district that in, 1893 he
was invited by tho Conservatives of
Dewdney to stand for them, lie accepted the post and defeated the v. t* ran
C. B. Sword. Iu that contest he stood
as a Conservative, promising an independent support to the Turner government.
Immediately after the elections the
lale Lieutenant Governor Mclnnes dis-
misse 1 liis ministers! Mr. MeBride was
really al liberty. He would have violated no pledge.* had he gone over to the
Semlin paity, then in office. Alex Hen*
derson, who had defeated, in New West
minster, J. C. Brown, another veteran
of the old opposition, was far mora*
deeply pledged, but immediately deserted. Dick ���MeBride win made of different stuff. Honor and loyally meant
something to him. Ho fcllow-d his
friends into the opposition.
In 15)00, when Joseph Martin, without
a follower in the house, appealed to the
country, Mr. MeBride again slood for
Dewdney ns u Conservative and was
returned. The only issue in the campaign had been the dangers oi Martin-
Is ill. The opponents of Martin at the
close of thee election numbered 30 in a
house of 88. But the majority represented many different opinions, had, in
fact, no bond of sympathy but theelev-
tenninatiein to save the province from
tbe disaster of a Martin premiership.
The Lieutenant Governor, with the
fifth straining of his prerogation.within
two years, called James Dunsuiuir to
the premiership. There wasgrare doubt
as to his acceptance by the majority. A
caucus was held in Vancouver. It is
conceded by all who were present that
it was the tact and eloquence of Richard
MeBride that secured the formation of
a cabinet and saveel the province from
the confusion of a s.cond campaign.
He then entered the Dunsmuir cabinet
aB minister of mines, a position he held
only two years. In 11)02 he resigned as
a protest against tho admission of J. C.
Brown, Joseph Martin's lieutenant,into
the cabinet. He became leader of the
opposition and received the loyal support of Smith Curtis, who resented the
betrayal by Joseph Martin of his party
and principles, and thought it not derogatory to his dignity to be a follower
of Richard MeBride.
As leader of the opposition his policy
was to prevent, or, failing that, to expose measures contrary to the public
iuteiest, but to assist loyally in the
transaction of necessary public business,
and to help in improving measures not
wholly bad.   If he had any weakness as
opposition leader, it wac a lack of sns
p'ciou ; lie was i.ot   perpetually seeking
to find or invent miterinl for sensational charges and scandal commissions.
In 1003, on tlie defeit of the Prior
administration, he became prime iniiiis-
'er and formed a Conservative csbiiiet
in accordance with the prine.'p'cs professed by him us early as 189S, and wns
endorsed in tint policy hy the provincial electorate.
Since then his career has always Iron
open to the public gaze, nnd will boar
any scrutiny. His administration h<s
boon efficient nnd. clean, tils 'measures
farsight d nnd in sympathy with the
growing needs of the province. His
conduct as leader of the house has been
marked 1 y promptness, diligence and
industry and by a courtesy and charm
of manner new to the legislative assembly of British Columbia. He is
easily tho most popular man in tho
house as well ;ib in the province.
As" a speaker, he is clear, fluent,
frank nnd natural, with no rhetor cal
pretensions, bat alsi without the funs
real calm of his chief opponent.

Political Pointers.
No one is more widely known or
greater respected in Hritish Columbia
than William Hunter. No man has
ever deserved greater honors nt the
hands of bis fellow man thnn "The
Father of the Silvery Slocan." Consistent, tactful, honest and a thorough
g'ntlemin, he ha* won the heart of
every man who ever had business or
social intercourse! with bim. When the
ages have run their cou*s", and the
Slocan will proudly bold numerous
large and prosperous cities, the subject
of our sketch and the oldest pioneer of
this resourceful country will have hi*
name reverently murmured by historians. Com'ng to this country where
scarce a white man had hitherto trod a
fiot. be started in to dig nnd d-lve.
His progress was marked with hard
knocks nnd repented reverses. When
other men would bavre lost all hone,
his consistent mind hade him W rk
harder, and he gradually ovprcotno the
many d'HIeulties which bestrewed bis
path of life. To day he s'ji-ics above
his fellow man tin a Sterling example of
rewarded industry. J'.eg'nni'n* at the
foot of tbo lndder with an emnty p ckeL.
he steadily climbed each rung until In
had reached n point where bis latent
business abilities were lo be tested. He
built tho first steam-boat which ever
cut tho crystal waters of fair Lake
Slocan, and as an accomodation to the
sparse population, lie ran the " S.S.
William Hunter" for a number of yenrs,
and finally turned it over to the C.P.R.
Company.
Launching out into business, ho lias
been interested" in twelve different
storeB since 1892, and some of t'ic =e
mercantile interests he still retains. Ho
has also operated and been directly
interested in over three of the leading
mines of Silverton, and has done more
to develop the s her l"ad mines than
any man in this country. Among the
mines he operated wns the Comstock,
which ho Worked successfully for over
two years, employing 35 men ; also the
Waketlc'd, which he worked for one
vear with great nieces. He nla i
located and operated the McAI'.ister
group for two years and turned over
this high grade producer to a Sandon
syndicate a few months ago.
In addition to his mining intccsts he
is one of tlie largest owners of real estate.
in this district. If wealth belongs lo
t'io producer thereof, then his many
friends will not begrudge him his competence. What he lacked in polished
education, he made up for by his careful business methods. He must be
written ns a good financier. When the
tide had turned in his favor, did ho join
the ranks of tho so-called Capitalist*
class and wage war on the worker ? No;
working man himself and friend of every
man in need, he stayed by bis old
principle of "Slocan first, last and
alwiiy*," for he knew that brawn and
sinew bad opened up tliii glo'tioui
country and ho was proud to stay with
it and still be (tilled a worker. Iu the
dark days of strife between mine owners
nnd men, the sterling qualities of the
man shono out brilliantly. ���"During the
prolonged s'rike in which the miners
but protected their Interests, Wm.
Hunter was holding up more men and
their faini i I than ho now cares to
remember. The mine owners know
that just as long as the men were supplied with provisions, the: strike would
continue and their chances of success in
breaking it be increased. Approached
by a delegation*of mine owners to quit
extending credit to the men, his answer
was typical of the self-made man who
had felt the pangs of hunger himself in
his pioneer days: " You ask mc to
throw over a body of men whom I
admire, and whose cause I esteem;
whose wives and children would he
driveli to desperation by the pangs of
hunger through such an action of mine.
No; just as long as I have a sack of
flour to share up with them, they shall
have it. 'iliere'ji the door; please close
-it, and leave yourselves on the oilier
side."
There's not a man in the Slocan riding
who should hesitate for one moment in
acknowledging bim a tried an 1 true
friend of labor. Tlie above instance is
but one of many iu which lie has shown
bis sterling loyalty as a friend of man.
Successful  iu  nil his business under-
taki *gs,.he is best cnpablo of advancing
i the interest** of ihe riding. A man who
! Is not eipahle of protecting b'S own
i interests hss no rijlit to asp're to pro-
l tect the interests nf ciiher*1. A man who
I nevor refused a fellow workinc mnn a

i nnd actions are above reproach. A man

jlutnre prosperity; who fully under*

| this sketch.
Let every man tnke a stand and judge
for himself what this district needi for

nssuccespf.il representing the people of
till" riding as be has been in b'S own
private business. Working me**; bu*-

appealing to your better judgment.
Prosperity has., knocked at fee door nf
the province, but the Silvery Slocan has
b en on the down grade for the pnsl
three years. The reasons nre obvi *us.

The Only Way.
We hnve waited, but not in viin.
The master touch to the campaign of
slander had to bo addod to, fl'l the
sequence. From tbe first motnorit tint
the MeBride government was returned
lo power to the present, hour, the
Vancouver World nnd the Dai'y News
of Nelson have kept up their fusihvlc of
disgusting slander,Hand wc, in common
with the average individual hnve been
nwai ing the final bou-mot. their trump
card, their political scoop. The la*-t
charge, is another stab in tbe dark at
R. F. Green, and lvecssa'ily tbey sec fit
to assume that the ministers acquiesced
in a gigantic lnodle. The verac'ty of
the Vancouver World is t io well under-
stend for nny rcli mce to be phcedon
its scoop. It asserts nothi ig. It pi* n-
'ed monster headliivs ove" ns dirty a
piece of cruel inuendo ns ever it was
our mis'o tine t> peuse. Every wild
slanderous statement which has b"en
made to date by the Vancouver World
have heen challenged and nailed We
sincerely regret that. Bri isb Columbia
harbors a newspaper which Ins not
decency enough to retract or apologise
when it has been discovered. We include r.lso in the above criticism the
Daily News.
Ever ready like a WeaJcl-ng to do the
bidding of its big bully brother, it his on
numerous occasions overstepped the
hounds of decency, and in the last in-
famitis stab, it relck'essly shows its disregard for truh by publishing ill full
the wiled diatribe which np poured in
Van Oliver's dirty Libera] rag.
It is a mean el-spicable, low-down
trick at the eleventh hour lo cloud the
real issue, But it had to come. It is
the only way! They have no other
weapons. It would bo impossible to
institute an investiitiitijii and conclude
it before February 2nd, and the pariahs
of the fourth estate who wielded their
vitriolic pens on this occasion fully
knew this, and played an artful sure
ihin^ game.
But we believe the man witli a vote
will read between the lines and treat
tbe vicious slander with contempt." We
believe no honest man with the privileges of the franchise would count
onance the acceptance of a bribe, great
orspiail, by a cabinet minister. Han
invesligition is demanded, Primier MeBride will assure dly do as he has done
before���call an unbiassed commission to
deliberate upon the charge. B.t we
most emphatically declare, tint if after
such an investigation has been held,
the charge fails to stick, then for
the sake of decency���for the sake of
justice, tbe Vancouver Worl I and the
Nelson Daily News should be suppressed,
and their editors and political owners
indicted for libel.
Tho News pub ished the sbiud'T in
full on its front page under enormous
headings. In an eel.t nial on the inside;
it ora>\ fishes and cnng.'s like the dirty
disreputable rag it is by saying it
publishes the article with "a certain
amount of reserve."

To the S icidist representatives in the
last Hnu-H all credit is due for. tlie
stand they took with tin government
in tbe matter of tho Columbia Western
Railway subsidy, which is quoted eo
extens'velr in the opposition press nst
the 800,000 acre grant to tho C. P. R.
He*o Wr>�� a Pill which the government
of 1S96 passed���and, by the way, Editor
Denne ami J. Fred Hume were members
of that government���to grant a subsidy
nf land te tee Columbia and Western
Railway, which came IM") force on the
17th day of April, 180��. By building
sections one and three, tho Company
earned 791 440 acres, and the land was
(���ranted hy the then renvernmen*. On
completion of sections four and five tho
company earned 80^,072 acres, and upon
n d'mnnd fo" payment, a honest government, to fulfil a legal contract made by
their predecessors in office, granted tho
80S.872 ncres. pnd in this the government
were, backed up by tin Socialists. The
company was j istiv entitled to obtain
the full mes*il'*c of land earned by it.
No amount of \vr*ngling will alter the
fact, that the government nf 1890 made
a bad bargain, ami thnt the list government hnd to fulfil its piri nf the con- ���
tract. Tin matter wns thrashed ont in
debate, nnd ns there was a right and
wrong picl ��� to tee ens', the Socialists
could not do'otherwise than standby
tbe tight, even though tbey knew with
the government that the Administration
of 189(1 had bnnus>d n corporation.
Facts nre stubborn thing-*, and it is
therefore not jti��t to the Socialists and
the Conservative's to characterise the
grant a si'onl, when it. wns made by the
identical faction who now figure as the
opposition.
W. W. B. Machines is the "mirchine" ���

that tho d!s?e**iiing elector can see

CHAPTER  V.
mWO of the men walked close beside the door, one of them bearing a lantern. They conversed
In low tones and lu a language
which Beverly could not uuderstaud.
After awhile she found herself analyzing the gurb uud manner of the men.
She was saying to herself that here
were her first real specimens of Grnu-
Stark peasantry, aud they were to
mark un Ineffaceable spot lu her memory. They were dark, strong fuced men
of medium height, with fierce black
eyes and long black hair, As no two
were dressed alike, it wns Impossible
to recognize characteristic styles of attire. Some were lu the rude, bnggy
,' costumes of the peusnnt as she had
" imagined him; others were dressed In
the tight fitting but dilapidated uniforms of the soldiery, while several
were in clothes partly European and
partly oriental. There were hats and
fezzes and caps, some with feathers In
tho bands, others without. The man
nearest the conch wore the dirty gray
uniform of an army otlicer, full of
holes nnd rents, while another strode
along iu a pair of bnggy yellow trousers and a dusty London dinner jacket.
All iu all, it was the motllest baud of
vagabonds she had ever secu. There
were at least ten or a dozen lu the pur-
ly. While u few carried swords, all
lugged the long rllles ami crooked daggers of the Tartars.
���'Aunt Funny," Beverly whispered,
suddenly moving to the Bide of the subdued servant, "where is my revolver?"
it had come to her like a flash that a
subsequent emergency should not find
her unprepared. Aunt Fanny's jaw
dropped, and her eyes were like white
rings in a black screen.
"Good I.awd, wbu ��� what fo', Miss
Bev'ly"���
"Shi Don't call me Miss Bev'ly.
Now, just you pay 'tentlon to me, and
I'll tell you something queer. Get my
��� revolver right away and don't let those
men see what you are doing." While
Aunt Fanny's trembling fingers went
In search of the firearm, Beverly outlined the situation briefly, but explicitly. Tho old woman was not slow to
understand. Her wits sharpened by
fear, she grasped Beverly's instructions with astonishing avidity.
"Ve'y well, yo' highness," she said,
with line reverence, "Ah'll p'ocuah de
bottle o' pepp'mlnt fo' yo' If yo' jes'
don' mine nie pullln' an' hauliu'
'mougst dese boxes. Mebbe yo' all
'd'ruther hub de glugeh'r" With this
wonderful subterfuge us a shield she
dug slyly iuto oue of the bugs aud
pulled forth u revolver. Under ordinary circumstances she would have
beeu mortally afraid to touch It, but
not so lu this emergency. Beverly
shoved the wenpou into the pocket of
her gray traveling jacket.
"I feel much better now, Aunt Fanny," she said, and Aunt Funny gave a
vast chuckle.
"Ynns, ma'am, Indeed -yo' highness,"
she agreed suavely.
The couch rolled aloug for hulf an
hour uud then stopped with a sudden
jolt. Au instant later the tall driver
appeared nt the window, his heud uncovered. A man hard by held a lnu-
teru.
"Qua vandos ur delta net, yos serent,"
said the leader, showing his white
teeth In a triumphant smile. His exposed eye seemed to he glowing with
pleasure nnd excitement.
"What?" murmured Beverly hopelessly. A puzzled expression came Into
his face; then his smile deepened uud
hia eye took ou a knowing gleam.
"Ah, 1 see," lie sulci gayly, "your
highness prefers not to speak the lun-
guago of Graustark. Is it necessary
for nie to repeat iu English?"
"I really wish you would," suld Beverly, Catching her breath. "Just to see
bow It sounds, you know."
���..'our every wish shall be gratified.
I bog to Inform you that we have
reached the Inn of tbe Hawk and Ru-
m*ii. This is where we dwelt last night.
Tomorrow we, too, abandon the place,
so our fortunes may run together for
seine hours nt least. There Is but little to offer you iu the way of nourishment, und there Is none of the comforts of u palace. Yet princesses cun
no more be choosers thau beggars
when the lure's In one iiot. Come,
your highness, let me conduct you to
the guest chamber of the Inn of the
Hawk and Haven.'-'
Beverly took his hand and stepped to
the ground, looking about lu wonder
aud perplexity.
"1 see no Inu," she murmured apprehensively.
"Look aloft, your hlgtiuess. That
great black canopy Is ihe* roof: wo ure
standing upon the floor, und tbo dark
shadows Just beyond 'ho circle of light
nre the walls o!' the Hawk and K"'*->i_
This is the largest tavern In all Graustark. Its dimensions are as wide as
the world Itself."
���You mean that there is no Inu at
all?" the girl cried iu dismay.
"Alas, I must confess It. And yet
there is shelter here. Come with me.
Let your servant follow." He took her
by tlie baud and led her away from
the coach, a ragged lantern bearer
preceding. Beverly's little right hand
was rigidly clutching the revolver In
her pocket. It wus a capacious pocket,
and the muzzle of the weapon bored
defiantly luto u timid powder rag that
lay on the bottom. The little leather
-purse from which It escaped had Its
silver lips opened lis if lu a broad grin
of derision, revelling In tho plight of
the chamois. Tbe guide's bund was at
once firm aud gentle, his stride bold,
yet easy. His rakish hat, with Its aggressive red featlier, towered a full
head above Beverly's Parisian violets.
"Have you no h��*me at all���no house
in which to sleep?" Beverly usked.
"I live lu a.sastle of air," said be,
waving'ills baud grace-any.   "i sleep
In the house of my fathers."
������You poor fellow," cried Beverly
pityingly. He luughed aud absently
putted tbe hilt of his sword.
She heard the men behind them turning the coach Into the glen through
which they wulkeei carefully. Her feet
fell upon a soft, grassy sward, aud the
clutter of stones was now no longer
beard. They were among the shadowy trees, gaunt trunks of enormous
size looming up iu the-light of the lanterns. Oncohsclously ber thoughts
went over to tho forest of Aielen and
the woodland home of ltosallnd, as she
had imagined it to be. Soou there
came to her ears tbo swish of waters,
as of some turbulent river hurrying
by. Instinctively she drew back, anil
ber eye- were set with alarm upou the
black wall of night ahead. Yetive bud
spoken more than once of this wilderness. Many an unlucky traveler had
j been lost forever lu its fastnesses.
"It Is the river, your highness. There
Is no danger. I will not lend you Into
It," he said, a trifle roughly. "We are
low in the valley, and there are
marshes yonder when the river is iu
Its natural bed. The floods have covered the low grounds, and there Is a torrent coming down from the hills. Here
we nre, your highness. This is the fun
of the Hawk and Raven."
He bowed and pointed with his lint
to the smoldering Are a short distance
ahead. Tbey bad tnrued a bend In tlie
overhanging cliff and were very close!
to the retreat before she snw the glow.
The fire was lu the open air and directly In front of a deep cleft In the
rocky background. Judging by the
sound the river conld not be more than
200 feet away. Men came up with
lanterns and others pileed brush upou
tho fire. In a very short time the glen
was weirdly Illuminated by the dauc-
tag flames. From her seat ou tbe huge
big Beverly was thus enabled to survey
��� portion of her surroundings. The
overhanging ledge of rock formed u
wide, deep canopy, underneath which
was perfect shelter. The floor seemed
to be rich, grassless loam, and here and
there were palletn of long grass, evidently the couches of these homeless
men. All about were huge trees, and
In the direction of the river the grus-i
gvew higher and then gave place to
rkeds. The foliage above was so den.-*
thnt the moou and stars were Invisible.
There wus a deathly stillness in the ah.
The very loneliness was so appalling
that Beverly's poor little heart wus In
a quiver of dread. Aunt Fauny, who
sat near by, had not spoken since leaving the couch, but her eyes were ex
presslvely active.
The* tall leader stood near the fire
conversing with half a dozeu of his followers. Miss Calhoun's eyes Anally
rested upon this central figure in the
strange picture. He was attired hi a
dark gray uniform that reminded her
oddly of the dragoon choruses In tho
conic operas at home. The garments,
wh'lo torn and soiled, were well fitting.
His shoulders were broad aud square,
his hips narrow, his legs long and
straight. There was an air of linpu-
der-t grace about him that weut well
with his life and profession.
Surely here wus a careless free lance
up"n whom life weighed lightly, while
death "stood afar off" aud despaired.
The light of tbe tire brought his gleaming face Into bold relief, for his hat
was off. Black and thick wus his hair,
rumpled and apparently uncajed for.
The face was lean, smooth and strong,
with a devil-may-care curve at the cor-
uers of the mouth. Beverly found herself lamenting the fuct that such an Interesting face should be marred by an
ugly bluck patch, covering she knew
not what mnuuer of defect. As for the
rest of them, they were a grim company. Some were young and beardless,
others were old nud grizzly, but all
were active, alert and strong. Tbe
leader appeared to be the only one in
the party who couid speak aud understand the English language. As Beverly sat and watched his virile, mocking face aud studied his graceful movements she found herself wondering
how an ignorunt, homeless wanderer
lu the hills could be so poetic and so
cultured us this fellow seemed to be.
Three or four men, who were umnls*
tukubly of a lower order than their
jompaulons, set about preparing a supper. Others unhitched the tired horses
and led them off toward the river. Two
dashing young fellows carried tbe seat
cushions under the rocky canopy aud
constructed au elaborate couch for the
"princess." The chief, with his own
hands, soou begun the construction of
a Bmull chamber In this pnrticulur corner of the cave near the opening. The
walls of tbe chumher were formed ot
carriage robes uud blankets, cloaks and
oak brunches.
"The guest chamber, your highness,"
he said, approaching her with a smile
at the conclusion of his work.
"It has been most interesting to
watch ��ou," she said, rising.
"Ana it nas been a ueiigbt to inter*
est you," he responded. "You will find
seclusion there, aud you need see none
of us until It pleases you."
She lnoked him fairly in the eye for a
moment and then Impulsively extended
her bund. He clasped it warmly, but
not without some show ot surprise.
"I urn trusting you Implicitly," she
suld.
"The knave Is glorified," was his
simple rejoinder. He conducted her
to the Improvised bedchamber, Aunt
Fanny following with loyal but uncertain tread. "I regret, your hlgli-
iiess, that the conveniences are so few.
We have no landlady except Mother
Earth, uo waiters, no porters, no maids,
lu the Inn of the Hawk and Raven.
This being a men's hotel, the baths are
on the rive* front. I am having watei
brought to your apartments, however,
but it Is with deepest shame and sorrow that I confess we have no towels."
Ska hushed su heartily that bis face
brightened perceptibly, WniitJ the faces
ef his men turned In their direction as
though by concert.
"It is a typical mountain resort,
then," she said. "I think I can manage very well if you will fetch my
bags to my room, sir."
"By the way, will you have dinner
served In your room?" very good hu-
moredly.
"If you don't mind, I'd like to eat in
the public dining room," said she. A
few minutes later Beverly was sitting
upon one of her small trunks, and Aunt
Fanny was laboriously brushing her
dark hair.
������it's very jolly belug a prlucess,"-
murmured Miss Calhoun. She bad
bathed her face lu one of the leather
buckets from tbe coach, and the dust
of the road had been brushed away by
the vigorous lady lu waiting.
"Yaas, ma'am, Miss���yo' highness,
hit's monstrous tine fo' yo', but wbar
is Ah goln' to sleep? Out yondah wlf
all dose scalawags?" said Aunt Fanny
rebellloiisly.
������You shall huve a bed in here, Aunt
Fanny." said Beverly.
������Key's de queeres' lot *��' tramps Ah
������veh did see, an' Ah wouldn' trust 'em
as fer as Ah could heave a brick
house."
"But the leader Is such a very courteous gentleman," remonstrated Beverly.
"l'aas, ma'am; he mussa came f'm
Oawgla or Kalntuck," was Aunt -fanny's sincere compliment.
Tbe pseudo princess dined with the
vagabonds that night. She sat on the
log beside the tall leader and ate
heartily of the broth and broiled goat
meat, the grapes and the nuts, and
drank of the spring water, which took
the place of wlue and coffee and cordial. It was a strange supper amid
strange environments, but sbe enjoyed
It as she had never before enjoyed a
meal. Tbe air- was full of romance
nud danger, and her imagination was
enthralled. Everything was so new
und unreal that sue scarcely could believe herself awake. The world seemed to have gone back to the days of
Robin Hood and his merry men.
"You fare well at the Inu of tbe
Hawk and Raven," she said to bim,
her voice tremulous with excitement.
He looked mournfully at her for a
moment aud then smiled naively.
"It Is the first wholesome meal we
have had iu two days," he replied.
"You don't mean it!"
"Yes. We were lucky with the guna
today. Fate was kind to us���and to
you, for we are better prepared to entertain royalty today than at any time
since I have been lu tbe hills of Graustark."
"Then you have not always lived In
Graustark?"
"Alas, no, your highness. I have
lived elsewhere."
"But you were born In tbe principality?"
"I am a subject of its princess in
heart from this day forth, but not by
birth or condition, l am a native of
the vast domulu known to a few of
us as Circumstance," and he smiled
i*a ther recklessly.
"You are a poet, a delicious poet,"
cried Beverly, forgetting herself in her
enthusiasm.
"Perhaps that is why 1 am hungry
and unshorn. It had not occurred to
me In tbut light When you are ready
to retire, your highness." he suld,
abruptly rising, "we shall be pleased
to consider the lun of the Hawk and
Raven closed for the night. Having
feasted well, we should sleep well.
We have a hard dny before us. With
your consent, I shall place my couch
of grass near your door. I am tho
porter. You'have bul to call If anything is desired."
She was tired, but she would have
sut up all night rather than miss any
of the strange t'Omamfe that hud been
thrust upon her. But Sjr Redfeathcr's
suggestion savored of a command, anil
she reluctantly made her way to the
flapping blanket that marked the entrance to the bedchamber. He drew
the curtain aside, swung his hut low
and muttered u soft good night.
"May your highness' dreams be pleasant ones!" he suld.
"Thank you," said she, and the curtain dropped Impertinently. '���That was
very cool of bim, 1 must suy," she added _*," she, looked at the wavering eloor.

BOILING FAT
COULDN'T    USE     HAND    FOR    A
MONTH.
Zam-Buk  Then   Applied    and    Gave
Instant  Relief.
An accident iii a Toronto home the
-ther day might have had very serious consequences hud it not been for
Zam-Buk. Miss Murthn Green, of 9
Cluremont St., in hiking a pan of boiling tut from the oven spilt it over
her right hand. "The boiling fat ran
into the palm of my hand," she says,
"unci over all my lingers. You may
well imagine the agony I suffered in
consequence. 1 wns almost wild with
the* pain. The hand became swollen,
and large blisters formed ull over the
palm and nlong the fingers. For
over a month 1 was unable lo use the
band at all. I tried several kinds
of salves and liniments, but the
wound seemed apparently no better.
It wns altogether too severe for these
preparations to heal. About this time
I was advised to try Zam-Buk. I
stopped using nil other preparations
ami applied Zam-Buk instead. Tbe
very first application soothed iny
blind and seemed to draw out the fire
and inflammation; and as I kept on
using-Znm-Huk the blisters pradunl'y
dried up .aud disappeared. In a very
short time the scald was healed completely.
This is but one instance of the uses
to which Zilin-Buk can be so advantageously applied. It is equally ef-
eetivo for burns, cuts, bruises, abrasions, sprains, and stiffness. It
also cures eczema, ulcers, sores, blood
poison, ringworm, scalp sores, chronic
Wounds, acne, bluckheuds, pimples,
cold sores, chapp-d hands, and all
akin diseases nnd injuries. Rubbed
.veil on lo the chest, ill cases of cold,
it relieves the aching nnd tightness,
and applied as nn embrocation it

LONDON  MUSIC HALLS.

���DrlTol For ��h*> Dre_ra."
"If I had to sum up the whole performance in a single phrase I should
���ay, 'Drivel for the dregs'���only that
and nothing more."
In this terse sentence W. T. Stead,
writing In the Review of Reviews,
condenses his Impressions after witnessing a full performance at a London music hall.
"My first Impression," he says, "was
one ot unutterable boredom. For three
and a half solid bours I sat patiently
listening to the mist Insufferable banality and Imbecility that ever fell upon human ears.
"My second Impression, which naturally followed upon the boredom, waa
one of wrathful Indignation. It seemed
lntolerirble that In Anno Domini 1806
the heirs of a thousand years of civilisation and the product of thirty-five
years of the education act should relish
this Inane drive).
"It was not the Immorality of the
thing that roused me so much as the
Imbecility of it all. Unlettered rustics
at country fairs used to And it amusing to grin at each other through
horses' collars. It would be more appropriate If the audience of last night
had been fitted with the headgear of a
humbler and less Intelligent congener
��f the turse.
"My third impression wa* the absence, with one or two exceptions, of
anything beautiful or melodious. There
was not a haunting m-sUdly or a simple air In the whole Jingle-jangle el
vain sounds, ind always, with one
great exception and two email ones,
there was a positive reveling In physical ugliness and ungraceful motion
and poses. U is not .funny. It is slm-
Blr dls-tuatlng."	
Soap Paste.
A Jar of paste made by shaving s
piece of white soap and boiling It lo
water to Jelly Is a great convenience
wheu a spot appears on a glove or light

gently on the soiled place. Milk Is bet
ter for the purpose than water, but thi
latter may be used.

In  arranging   the  table  for  dinner
where  there  are  soup,  meat,  vegeta-
i bles, a salad and dessert to be served
! the method of placing the stiver and

pieces of flat ware at the covers and
fewer glasses.

' ing brought In by the waitress.
Place the silver as follows: On the
; left ef tbe plates place the forks, laid
In the order In which the dishes requiring them will be served, starting from
tbe outside. The knives and oyster
forts, If the latter are served, are
placed on the right of the plate, the
soup spoons In front of the plate or
with the kiilves ut the right. Tbe
bowls of the forks and spoons should
be right side up, the edges of the
knives turned towurd the plate. Large
spoons are not luid on the table, the
maid placing one when necessary In
I tbe dish. Suit and pepper boxes are
placed at the corners, within easy
I reach of every two people. Napkins,
folded In triangular shape, are laid
\ on the plutcs, aud a piece of bread, cut

Inches tblck, laid In the fold.
A salad Is seized after the roast or
piece de resistance and before the dessert. It is usually brought In by the
waitress, each plate prepared for the
Individual guest. With the salad are
generally served cheese straws, crackers or sandwiches. In the event of a
large dinner It is best for the serving
of the meat to be done ut a side table,

���SHOWN  WALL HAHtH.
Particularly Appropriate Par a Sa.a
I'eeclb.  the Kant.
It Is rather remarkable that brown
wall paper has not more admirers. For
a room facing east It Is particularly
warm nnd cozy. A woman who Is
much at her desk found the pale yel
low figured wall paper extremely trying to her eyes wheu lifting them from
her writing for a few minutes' rest.
The room had an eastern exposure, and
the yellow walls were glaring lu the
morning when the sun shone In and
cold In the afternoon wheu the sunlight had vanished.
After much thought sbe selected for
the upper walls a plain light chocolate
felt. Below the picture rail, which
was a little more than halfway up, sho
put a dado of a brown background
with fleur-de-Ils and pin lines of a
darker brown. The celling was mado
of a very light shade, almost a fawn,
In order to give sufficient light to tbe
somewhat somber effect. Tbe result
was successful. Long curtains of green
denim hung straight at tbe long windows which reached almost to the floor,
with deep window seats, ind the window shades were light.
The brown walls were soothing to
tbe eyes and gave an effective background to the few engravings and photographs needed to break the monotony
of the wulls, aud the woodwork was
painted white. Far from being somber, this den wns the coziest, most
cheerful spot iu the house on days
when bleak northeasters beat against
tbe windows. The white doors and
casements gave ro light a touch that
the mahogany furniture, with which
the room was furnished, did not give
too heavy an effect. ��� Philadelphia

Leaves do not fall from the tree because they are "dead," which we may
take as equivalent to saying because

which have very little adhesion, so
that the leaf Is very liable to be broken
away by Influences of wind and
changes ot temperature and of moisture,        _.
Why   It   la  Done  and   Proper  Method
of UoIiik  It.
Some kinds of meat are lacking In
fat and need fat to bring out their
best qualities, 'ihe best way to add
It Is by lurdlug, yet with the exception
of a fillet o( heel' or liver this is seldom done In the home kitchen. A larding needle Is pointed at one end and
has prongs at the other In which the
little strips of poik are Inserted. Set
the needle Into the meat and make oue
stitch; draw through and let go so us
to leave an ead of pork sticking up at
each end of the stitch. Make one row,
then begin cgain, taking the stitches
alternating with the first.
When the larding Is finished the meat
will be covered with little points of
pork not over one-third of an Inch
high.
The little strips of pork are called
'lardoons and are cut from fat salt
pork, That part next to tbe rind,
Which is firm and hard, Is used; ths
soft part Is not suitable for. larding
Cut In slices one-quarter tnch thick,
then cut this Into quarter Inch strips
For some meats the lardoons are mad*
a trifle larger, but they must be eves
smaller for little birds.
As the meat cooks, the pork crlspi
and covers the surface with u busting
of fat, while the portions Inside ure so
small as to cook thoroughly.
As a substitute for larding shave
Arm salt pork very thin and lay on tbe
meat, and If necessary stick wooden
toothpicks through to hold them In

A COLD FINDS
YOUR   WEAK  SPOT
The Bronohlal Tubes and Lungs are Protected against
the Evil Effects of Colds by
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine
You can never tell just whot form
a ccild will take, but you may be sure
it will search nut your weakest organ.
With some it assumes a catarrhal nature and affects the bend principally;
with others it becomes bronchitis ami
there sets in a hard cough and severe
ediest pains. Then, again, it often
lends to inflammation ol the lungs,
consumption, pneumonia or may settle on the kidneys or bowels.
Because colds do not always prove
-erious some people take chances
with them, but the risk is great. Dr.
('huso's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine is intended for people who
want assurance against serious remits from colds.
This grent medicine has absolutely
proven its extraordinary control over
boughs, colds, croup, bronchitis,
whooping cough, asthma nnd nil such
lilments, and for this reason has n
place in the great majority of homes.
Mr. John Clark-, coachman, I'nrt
Hope, Ont., writes: "Being exposed
to all sorts of Weather, I frequently
catch cold. Lost winter I was so had
with a cold thnt 1 could not sponk
above n whisper, and hud great
pains in the chest. At last I feared
it would develop into consumption if
I did not succeed in {letting proper
treatment. A friend advised me lo
try Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed nnd
Turpentine ami 1 began to improve
before 1 hnd taken ball a bottle. One
bottle cured my oold, which I be-
lic-ve. would have proven very serious if I  had mil used I his medicine."

A  Knack  for Oriental   Rugs.
At the Inst session of the Paris Ac.i- |
leniy eif Medicine Dr. Vidal called at- |
tentieiii to the great danger of contusion from the use of Oriental carpets.
i'licKc carpets come from countries in
which dysentery und other diseases
prevail. The disease germs settle in
the libres af the material, and their
ransiuission to the user is a probabil-
ty if tbe textiles are not carefully
disinfected. Dr. Vidal told ��>f two cases
tbut illustrate the danger. Tbey occurred recently in Paris. An elderly
man, it collector of rugs, received n
lealer who exhibited to him n number
if Oriental samples. He finally bought
two Japanese tapestries, upon which
the purchaser's three-year-old child
played for n while. r;igbl days later
She child died, having been infected
with dysentery. A few days later the
.'atber also bad an attack of the same
disease that resulted in denth.

Hints to Smokers.
The Canadian cigar and Tobacco
.Journal gives some hints to those who
smoke pipes. Everybody thinks Re
knows bow to smoke a pipe; but to do
it perfectly Is not onsy. "Time is a
keynote of successful pipe smoking,"
says tlie Journal, "and another is gentleness, Take it easy. Don't crowd the
pipe to the top of tha bowl. Never fiet
u pipe hot, Keep cool, und keep your
pipe cued. You can relight a pipe, nnd
if you are an old smoker you will be
all the better for it. When you have
finished dp not refill n heated pipe."
While more prevalent in winter,
when sudden changes in tlie weather
try the strongest constitutions, colds
nnd coughs and ailments of the
throat may come in any season. At
the lirst sight of derangement use
Bickle's Anti-Consumptive Syrup. Instant relief will be experienced, and
use of the medicine until the cold_
disappears will protect the lungs from"
attack. For anyone with throat ey
ohest weakness it cannot be surpassed.

The Height of Waves.
A grent Atlantic roller, disporting
itself on top of between 2,000 and 8,-
OK) fathoms of water, will completely
change its character on coming into
shallower soundings. The drift is curtailed and the crest becomes peaked
up.
Near tlie Mddystono lighthouse,
where the depth steeps within the
range of but a few miles from 200 fathoms to 300 fathoms, the sea has been
known to heap up into a solid wall of
green water to a height of more than
100 feet. Such a procession of billows
bearing down upon the famous lighthouse leave nothing but its lantern
visible above their frothing ridges.
The expression, "green water," or
"green sea," by the woy, is used to
denote the actual wave body, as distinguished from the spray which It
may throw up on breaking. Thus tha
eelebrated St. Helena rollers measure
no more than about 15 feet of green
water, but on bursting they will fling
their crystalline showers to a height of
substantially over 100 feet.

The ancient question. "Who breaks a

for this purpose Is a light fowling piece
loaded with dust shot or coarse salt. It
may seem ridiculous to advocate the

a very good target"

Se,*. ot Three-quarter Inch Wlr*_
llo_ie In Six Foot _ie_he_.
If I did not have photographs to of*
f'-r as provf, I might hesitate to put
upon u fairly well established reputation for v��.*aelt.v the strain of standing
for Ihe assertion tbut the business of
catching whales- uot baby whale.-, but
big sixty foot right whales���In nets Is
carried ou In the south Pacific.
The biggest lish stories eve." told may
1.* heard by the wanderer In southern
seal, and some of the most amazing
of them are literally true. This whale
netting yarn Is not strictly a fish story,
because a whale Is not really a llsh,
and II Is not the most startling of the
collection In iny south sen note-boo'-,
but let It go ns n fish story.
Waiigamunin Is n little bay on the
twist const, a few nillev south of a
prominent cape, which Juts out to the
northeast iti.d might easily be mistaken for the aortheasteru extremity
of the North Island. During May aud
June tbe antarctic whale tulgrntes
north Into warmer waters, and It seems
prolmlil.- that there Is some set of current-* around Ihe headland of Wanga-
mt'.mu which deceives him Into seeking ii passage to the Tnsrnan sea by
boring Into the shore nt thnt point.
Whatever may he the cause, the fact
Is Ihat schools of whales hug the shore
and puss very close to u great bitting
rock at Wnngamumu.
Straight out Into the sen from the
point of rocks Is stretched the whale
net, made of three-quarter inch wire
rope In six foot mesh, each mesh being formed of separate sections ef rope
attached to trou corner rings, taking
the places of knots. The top edge of
the net Is held clos. to the surface by
barrels serving as buoys. A whale
cruising along the shore gets his head
through a me.h, and Instead of attempting to back out he rushes forward and entangles himself hopelessly
In the net. Ono of ray photographs
shows a whale rushing luto the net'
nnd dragging the shoreward buoy
through lhe water with much commotion. Close to the shore can be seen
the disturbance of the surface caused
by the dragging under of the shore end
of the upper wire rope.
I'rom u lookout station on the top of
tbe headland a watcher signals the approach of whales, and the boats then
put oft' and lie In wait. An entangled
whale carries away the net with his
rush, but the great weight of the wire
rope and the drag of a long line of
buoys Impede him, and Instead of holding out to sea and going away at great
speed with the whole outfit he thrashes
about and soon gets fins and flukes entangled, when the boat approaches and
the whalers finish the business with
harpoon and lance, as Ik the old days.

DISEASE MADE BONES

According to bis physician this terrible
condition wns brought about by taking medicine which contnined a certain  mineral poison.
Again and again hns it been demonstrated that mineral medicines are
harmful. It is because Bileans, while
so effective for all liver and digestive
disorders, yet contain no trace of any
mineral, but are, on the contrary,
purely herbal, that they have won the
praise of medical men, trained nurses
and scientists all the world over.
Bileans differ from pretty nearly
every other liver medicine in containing no mercury, and from pretty
nearly every other stomach medicine
in being free from bismuth. They
arc also free from alcohol. They are
compounded from the finest known
medicinal herbs and roots nnd are
thus the best family medicine that
can lie obtained. They operate gently on the bowels, curing constipation
and piles. They correct acidity of
the stomach, stimulate the digestion,
tone up the liver, and correct the
secretion of bile. Their general action is nt the same tinio corrective
and tonic���correcting faulty secretion,
toning up wenk nnd debilitated organs. They thus euro anemia, green
sickness, female ailments and irregularities, blood impurities, rheumatism, etc. For nausea, headache, gas,
pain in the chest and between the
shoulders they are also very effective. Their operation is mild, yet, effective. In curing constipation they
do not cause after constipation, nor
do they ever cause griping. Mothers
will find them beneficial in the many
little ailments to which children are
subject. All druggists sell Bileans at
fifty cents a box, or they may be obtained post free from the Bilean Co.,
Toronto, on receipt of price. For
$2.50 a parcel oi six boxes will be
mailed. This is the. most economical
form for family use.

that our minds are going to the bowwows. We suspect from some of tbe

Tk�� Battle ot Rrdonda.
Not far from St. Thomas, a matter of
perhaps a hundred miles, was fougb,
the most wonderful naval battle in all
history. The Dutch admiral detected
tbe cuemy in the early morning, when
the sea was covered with a thick mist,
and his guns opened fire at once* without warning. The fire was returned
with Interest, the ocean fairly quivering with spasms caused by the shock
of frequent discharges. Somehow or
other the enemy's shots, which sounded like a bombardment, seemed to fall
short or go wide of the mark, for not
even a splash of a ball was heard, and
the Dutch ships remained unscathed.
On the other hand, the Dutch could not
see the terrible execution their guns
were doing until nearly the middle of
tbe forenoon, when the fog lifted, revealing to tboir astonished gaze not the
vessels of the enemy, but a great rock
standing out of tho sea. They had been
firing ut It for five hours, and tbe sound
ef the return shots they heard was the
echo from the solid wall of granite.
They named the place Itedonda, which
menus sent, rolled or driven back, and
Redonda It Is to this day.
Sea Otter Skin.
The furrier was taking his Btock out
of the cold storage room, it came
forth frozen stiff and coated with glistening white frost. But there was one
beautiful skin that, though Just as stiff
as any of ihe others, had no frost on It.
"I want you to look at this skin," he
said. "It Is the kind that the richest
Russians, grand dukes, nud so on, have
their overcoat collars made of. It Is a
sea otter's skin, and It Is mo expensive
that often one cout collar of It will cost
JUIle.. It Is unquestionably the best
skin lu the world to muke coat collars
of. Why? Look at this one, and you'll
see. All my other skins nre covered
with frost, while on this fur no frost
whatever appears. And that's the reason why sea otter skins make the best

Memory of Archibald  Lampnun.
A handsome bronze medallion of the

P'-et, who was a distinguished graduate of the college, was unveiled ai
Trinity College at the recent annual
convocation service. The ceremony was
performed by Prof. PeUuun Re-gar. est
Toronto University, who paid a tribute
to tha ge-ntle spirit of the great Canadian poet who had, he suld, never been
clamorous for public reputation, who
wrote In no spirit of rivalry, but labored ever In the sense of duty, contented only with the approval of hts
own severe genius and lhe purpose .1*
a discerning mind.
Source of  Inspiration.
Spiritual truth, moral strength and
natural beauty were the unfailing
source of his Inspiration, and It Is because he never wavered under the responsibilities which these great themes
Imposed upon him that his fame to-elay
rests upon so Becure a foundatlin. IIl3
love of nature was more than a mere
cult of beauty; It had in il something
of the rapture of rediglon, and the conviction of a reasoned  philosophy.
Commercialism and materialism, like
twin monsters, batten and fatten upon
oui* age, and a young country like our
own lies almost de-fonreless In their
path. What, then, do we owe to one
who, like Lampman, In a material age
held aloft and ever binning the torch
of the spirit?
Religio.n and National Life.
Rev. Dr. Dii-Tnilln, of Chleapro,
preached an Instructive sermon on the
relationship of religion to national life.
Universities, he asserted, required no
apology for their existence; while l,*g-
lslatures and .Parliaments enacted
laws, the universities moulded the
mental and moral fibre of manhood
that was to express those measures In
terms of personality. Touching upon
the relationship of the church to the
nation, the preacher Impressed upon
the students the duty Of carrying direct to the conscience of man the old
question, "Will you renounce?" Therein lay the whole point of salvation.
Prof. Clark, Rev. Wm. Jones, Dean
Duckworth and Provost Street-Mack-
lem also look part in  the service.

Once the proud puke of Somerset employed Seymour to paint a room at his

artist to his table, he one elny drank to
him, saying:
"Cousin Seymour, your health."
Tho painter replied, "Sly lord, 1 real

This hurt ihe pride of the duke so

that no one iu England could complete

a goodly number of birds where the*
Inexperienced huntsman will utterly
fall. This fact, no doubt, Is owing to
certain peculiarities of the wookcock
���an original method of managing his
private affairs���of which a little study
will soon render such fruitless effort-
unnecessary.
The woodcock has a wide range for
his activities, but Is a native of northern Europe and Asia. Japan also lays
claim to It as one of that country's
birds. It is said to breed sometimes hi
the northern part of Scotland, but
very rarely In England, where It re
sides during the winter, leaving Its-
summer haunts in the great northern
pine forests���where It frequents the
wet, swampy places���for more southerly latitudes. America ha3 Us own
branch of th6 woodcock family, with
the whole of North America fGr Its
range.
In appearance the woodcock greatly
resembles the snipe���that tiny bird, so
delicious to the gourmand's palate���
with the same long, straight bill and
plump round body; but It Is larger and
heavier than the snipe, and Its legs
are shorter und stronger. Thirteen Inches Is about the usual length of the
foreign bird, though II occasionally attains a length of fifteen Inches. The
American woodcock averages eleven
Inches In length. The female woodcock
Is superior In size and weight to the
male bird. Pretty creatures they are.
The Ideal Private School.
Rowland Godfrey Freeman says that
an Ideal private school should he out
of town, but within easy reach of the
homes of Its patrons. There should he
short periods of study, frequent, recesses, and ample time for u substantial midday meal.
The harder worlc should come during the morning hours, the lighter
work In the afternoon hours. After
this the children should play out of
doors. The Ideal public school should
care for the children as many hours
a day as is practicable! Out door play
should precede study. Study hours
should be evorl, with frequent recesses. Nutritious food should be furnished the scholars at noon.
In the afternoon the easier subjects,
the'manual work, and preparation for
the next day should occupy the time.
There should he opportunity for outdoor exercise under supervision until
late afternoon. In every school strict
examination should be made for any
evidence of contagious diseases. All
children with colds and contagious
eruptions should be excluded from
school.���Medical. Record.
