Xocal anb General.  I
The delegation from the Nuls'ti Board
���of Trade, together with the representatives from the Slocan who wore appointed to wait upon Mr. I). C. Cileman,
the new divisional superintendent succeeding J. S. Lawrence, to make known
tbe great hardship which has been
wrought upou tbo whole Slocan by the
inauguration of a tri weekly service,
���were accorded a hearing on tbe 29th
���ult. The deputation was received very
courteously, and many strong claims
were forthwith advanced showing why
Ilia C.P.R. should revert to tlie old
schedule, It was felt at tho conclusion
ofj the Interview that the proper slept
had been taken and that much good
would result from the meeting.
Louis Pratt, the delegate from Sanson, wss seen by our reporter on his
���return from Nelson. He said that he
felt sure that the plea of the delegation
was successful, for Mr. Coleman ex-
���prcs-ed bis intention of himself covering
the ground at a near datcand thoroughly investigate tbo grievunce, and it be
[found a real grievance existed ie would
take steps to remedy it.
Mr. Pratt said lit wss a foregono conclusion that the daily inailserv.ee would
bo reinstated for Ihe lake (owns in a
very short time, but for Sandon be
could not express himself to confidently
.at present.
" Did you press the claims of this end
���ot the distract?" asked the scribe.
" I certainly did," replied Mr. Pratt;
"and in my efforts I was strongly sup-
ipot'ted :by the other delegates. After
ihcariiig tho argument!, for our side and
mone being forthcoming from lhe other,
Mr. Coleman replied in part:. You wil|
���readily understand, gentlemen, that as
J have.only just assumed my duties in
this division, and being a a ranger to
the mountains, I am in cons ei * uence un-
���acquaintcd .with many conditions such
.as you complain of. I can readily un-
deistand from what yon have told me
that uuder the new schedule the city of
Sandon has praotically no train service,
and although offhand I cannot promise
you a daily train, I will do the next
best thing hy promising to give you a
eervice��� I cannot say what such service
will be unt 1 I have been ovur the
ground���that will prove acceptable to
all parties."
The Review urgi s upon the citizens of
Sandon the necessity of standing .pat at
this jiuictuie. While we are in difficulties all the time wilh the new train arrangements wo nre up against a mail
proposition of the worst kind which
can bo obviated if we prevail upon the
Postmaster-General to transfer the
contract for carrying the Nelson, Crow's
Nest ami Uuitid Slates mull from the
C.P.Ry. Co. to the Gnat Northern Co.
It is demonstrated Ihat while the former have seen lit to m��ke mincemeat of
their local service, lhe Great Northern
Company rise to lhe occasion with a
praiseworthy ami enterprising scheme
to give Iho district a better service
than has hitherto existed. A veritable
lesson to Die public in the mailer of
bonused vs. unbonused railways. Much
ink could be wasted in telling of the
largt sunn of public money drawn from
the provincial treasury by the C.P.R.
CoTfir their run to Nakusp to**kcep
them from becoming bankrupt, but tho
citizens should be more concerned in
seeming the transference of lhe mail
to a company who can serve the district as it deserves and ia entitled to bo
served, We have lhe wire from the
Postmaster* General b.-fore us Irom
which wo quote: ''This department
quite prepared to continue daily mail
���service if daily train service is maintained," so it will be readily grasped
that if tho railway company does not
use us fairly we have substantial
grounds for demanding that the mail
service bo turned over to the company
who have a daily through connection
between Spokane and Sandon. The
tm-rmous possibilities of the until 801'-

Prince Rupert townsite will not be put
ou the market this year. F,om the
amount of jockeying that has been done
already regarding this al'eged terminal
of the Grand Trunk Pacifi *, there aie
those who are doubtful if this point will
eventually be the terminal. But the
thousands that havo a weather eye on
the north will take an interett'in anything that may be published about
Prince Rupert or any other point fathered by the G.T.P. While they know
that some railway men, like some po'i-
ticlans, can lie as fast us a dog can trot,
they also know that the new tratipcon-
tiueutal line mustreach the Pacific coast
somewhere and that point will be an
important city in  the course of lime.
J. S. Carter, who has been in the
Kootenays since the pioneer days, in
the capacity of district passenger agent
moat of the time, hits been promoted,
and on the 1st of June will take the
position of general licket agent at Spokane, as the Canadian Pacific Railway
now has connection with that ci'y.
The promotion in the case of Mr. Carter is a well deserved reward of merit,
for he has beeu a true, faiijiful nnd
able representative of tbo Canadian
Pacific railway in this district, ami has
won tbe full confidence of not only his
superiors but of the tiavelling public.
This is because be bas been eVt-r legard-
ful of the interests if loth. No little
share of Ihe popularity which IheC.P.R.
enjoys in this section is due to the inan-
nor in which Mr. Carter and those in
his department have treated the public.
In the new position which he bus been
called to fill be will have a belter opportunity to show that he has more lhan
oidiniiry ability for getting business
and g. nerally making good, The people of the Kootenays will all jo;n heartily in wishing bim lhe greati st. possible
success in his new field, and a host of
friends will always have an interest in
his personal nnd business welfare.���

Helping Out the Slocan.
Several of thc coast pnpers, in their
anxiety to light the good light for the
Slocan, have fallen somewhat awry of
tha, main facts, they attributing the
trouble to the past office authorities.
Nov that they have been put next to
the true state of affahs they are making
good, however. The News-Ad vet User
goes on as follows:
Ai will be seen liy a letter from the
local superintendent of mail service
puplished elsewhere, we were incorrect
in the view taken by us in our article
in yesterday's is*ue���that the action of
the post office department in reducing
the mail service in the Slocan district
to three deliveries a week, had preceded
aud been the cause of the Canadian Pacific railway company curtailing its
daily passenger service to one of only
three days in the week. From Mr. Mc-
Leod's letter it appears that tho reverse
was the case and that the reduction in
the train service compelled the department to drop its daily mail on account
of theru being no transportation available for it on four days in tho week.
While this explniia'ion iu no way lessens tho weight of the protests Ihat the
people of the Slocan distiict have made
against the loss and inconvenience
caused them by thu change, it shifts the
responsibility for the matter from the
postoffice department to the railway
company, since o*>. McLeod states that
the department also protested against
this s rious reduction in Ihe transportation facilities of a large and important
section of Ihe province. It appears,
therefore, that the prepsure of public
opinion must bu brought to bear on Iho
railway coa.pany lo induce it to rescind
its recent action nnd resloie lo Ihe Slocan district the transportation fucilities
that it has had for n number of yeais.
The circumstances of the case are such
that we cannot believe there will be
any hesitation on the part ot the com-
pary in acceding without delay to the
request made to it.
Apart altogether from the general
features of the matter, there aio cir.
cumstances connected with this particular brunch of tho railway company's
operations in British Columbia that
make tho service over the Slocan branch
different from that on other lints in
the company's system in this province.
The line from Nakusp to Three Forks,
which is the main part of this branch,
was constructed by aid fund-bed by the
provinci tl government in the shape of
a guarantee, Each year since the completion of that road, the provincial government has been called upon lo pay n
considerable sum to meet the deficiency
in tho proportion ot the revenue allocated to it, to provide the necessary
amounlto psy lhe annual interest. The
depression that has existed Ior some
years iu lhe dislrict bus ii creased the
amount that the province has bad to
provide. Now Hint there is a prospoat
that the generally better economic conditions prevailing throughout the province would be reflected in an improvement in the situation in tho Slocan, it
has been anticipated that the annual
charge on the province, in connection
with the Nakusp and Slocan railway,
would also be diminished by laigcr tiaf-
Hc receipts over the lino. But there is
no prospect of such a desirable consummation being reached if the facili ies tor
travel and transportation aro to be reduced more than one half, stagnation
and disturbance caused tbo industries
in Ike dislrict, and a check put on Ihe
nascent activity that wns becoming apparent in the mining and other development ol the Slocan section. We are
convinced that these things had not been
taken into consideration when the
change was decided on.
With a company like the Canadian
Pacific with a gross annual revenue of
something like seventy million dollars,
the lo-s of a few hundred dollars a
month in giving a proper service on a
piece of its lines a tew miles in length
is not, or should not be, ot moment.
To reduce the service is lo lessen Ihe
prospects of a remunerative traffic being
developed. The case for the restoration
of a daily service is so strong that wa
cannot conceive lhe company will hesitate to meet the situation and give the
Slocan the service which its interests
iinperative'y demand.
Whil-t working at the Montezuma
mine on Tuesday morning aliortly after
10 o'clock, William Hanson, a surfaceman, was struck down by a tree which

such severe injuries lo his spine that be
expired tho following day.
Woid was- received at the mine of the
accident, and the injured man was conveyed there, where be remained all

fellow, but be expired the same day at

Some consternation hns been caused
among timbermen by tbe declaration
of a mnn who has arrived from Victoria
tbat the department of Lands and
Works has refused to consider applications for special licenses to cut nnd
carry away timber from Crown lands
which had not been filled out and advertised according to the new schedules
of the amended act. Forms ot application were is-ued on April 25, in accordance with tbe new schedules provided
by the act, but practically all applications which have been made from the
Mainland have been according to "old
forms.
Timbermen in Vancouver who have
learmd ot the statements alleged to
havo been made by officials of the department at Victoria deda-e that they
can baidly c.o lit tbe report. The
Vancouver timber ollice has never received copies of the new forms for distribution, and in the face of that fact
it is not believed that the department
will o1 j. et to applications made in
accordance witli Ihe old schodules.
Should the report turn out to be correct,
the result will be Ihat ull applications

Aa Dr. Blyth stood in the hall a
young girl stepped from an adjoining
room, Inquiring anxiously, "How do
yon find my father, Dr. Blyth?"
"His condition is serious," he admitted, "but with good care"���
She cut short the conventional platitudes.
"When  will  he be able to go out
���s-gainr
"Not for weeks," emphatically.
Her look of anxiety deepened.
"What   is   your   father's   business,
Hiss Hall?"
"He Is  manager of the local telephone system and attends personally
to repairing and keeping up the line."
"That means a great deal of hard
work?" sympathetically.
"Yes, particularly In the winter. Tho
circuit comprises nearly 300 phones,
and the line extends out Into the country In all directions."
'Discontinue It ln the winter," unthinkingly.
"The subscribers need It more then,"
gravely. "Nearly all of them are farmers and depend upon tbelr telephones
(or communication with tbe village
and with each other."
"If possible, keep from your father
all anxiety concerning the business. I
tear nervous prostration In his case."
During his round of calls Dr. Blyth
thought often of the beautiful girl with
tne sweet, grave voice. He was a
stranger in Llndsey and waa taking
np bis uncle's practice.
"Fred Hall sick? That's too bad!"
was his uncle's comment. "But they'll
manage all right," with a country doctor's knowledge of his patient's affairs. "Mrs. Hall is strong and a good
nurse. Fidelia understands the business thoroughly. Too bad she Isn't a
boy. It will take about all the manager's salary to hire a man to come
here from tie city to do the outside
work."
Dr. Blyth was disappointed when
several calls were made upon the sick
manager without seeing Fidelia. She
was constantly ln his thoughts, and
her lovely face seemed always before
his eyes.
By chance his next call was in the
evening. Fidelia met him In the hall
as he was leaving.
i "Do you feel encouraged, Dr. Blyth?"
j "Yes," kindly, "but his nervous condition is serious. Is he worrying about
the business?"
' "I think not," hopefully. "I hold his
Iposltlon as manager, and that encour-
iagcs him. He has all confidence in my
lability."
"You arc a brave girl," enthusiastically. "You have some one for the
loutslde work?"
I   She hesitated, coloring rosily.
j  "I���I have tho services of a very com-
'pclcut lineman."
i   "Where Is your 'central?'"
!   "Here," Indicating the room adjoln-
'Ing.   "I've always been father's hello
igirl," smiling brightly.
i  On several succeeding calls the phy-
ktdan saw no one outside the sickroom
Ibiit Edith Hall, a girl about thirteen,
���sharp of eye and of tongue, wholly un-
llike Fidelia, ho thought
i   "I'm hello girl now," she cried Im-
portantly.   "Fidelia's out looking after
the line���the lineman."
I   He recalled his uncle's remarks regarding   Fidelia's   knowledge   of   the
business.
���The brave little girl," he murmured,
rwlth a tenderness wholly unaccountable. "She will wish to supervise the
lineman's work for awhile. I'd like to
be the lineman if It means a daily
drive with the little Fidelia."
On the following evening he saw
Fidelia ln her office. He reported hopefully of her father and rejoiced in her
words of praise for his professional
care.
1   "I've often thought," she observed*
���earnestly, "that I'd like to be a doc-l
tor."
Dr. Blyth smiled somewhat satirical-1
ly*
"Yon forget, Miss Hall," rather loftily, "your physical Inability to cope
(with tbe hardships Incident to a country doctor's life. He must brave any
atorm or cold. A delicate girl like you
���couldn't endure It"
A little flickering smile lurked for an
Instant at the corners of the pretty!
Unouth. .
j "Don't you approve of women being'
{physicians?"
yFrankly, Miss Hail, I do not"
Aren't you somewhat old fashioned,
���tor, not to say antiquated. In your
as?" quizzically.
"Perhaps," stiffly, "but there are so
many occupations for which a woman
li wholly fitted that it seems regrettable she should enter upon one entirely unsnlted to her."
"And may I ask," demurely, "what
ire some that you consider suitable for
���"omen?"
"WeU," hesitatingly, "first home-
making. A woman should be���er���a
wife and���and mother, of course."
Those privUeges," quietly, "are de-
teled some women.   Go on."
i "Schoolteachlng," triumphantly, "mH-
iBnery, dressmaking.**
L**Not at all np to date," smilingly.
Anything else?"
I "WeU-er," lamely���"I don't recall
anything at tbe moment"
j **Ycra wouldn't approve, then, of a
[woman being a steamboat captain or
Ian engineer or a house painter or a
(mason?**
I  "Certainly not The last two are nt-
tterly Impossible anyway."
i   "Ob. I dent know,-*- lightly. "I can
even imagine a woman being a goofi
lineman."
Blyth laughed In open sarcasm.
"I wouldn't care to see the woman.
Wouldn't she be n terrorl"
"Why?" sharply.
"Take your own lineman, for example, Miss Hall. Fancy a woman in his
place���driving In all weathers about
this sparsely settled couutry, climbing
poles, sitting astride crossarms!" He
shrugged his shoulders Impatiently,
"That's worse than being a doctor!"
Afterward he wondered If she would

doing. He honed joqt JJe constdorafl. 111

~3.e promised himself that he would
see her often. He had never before
met a girl who seemed to answer so
fully the requirements of his Ideal.
But as the days went by his glimpses
of Fidelia were tantalizingly infrequent. He disliked to Inquire for her.
He fancied there was malignant satisfaction In Edith's brief answer, "Out���
with the lineman."
He ventured another evening call, but
Fidelia was In charge of the switchboard, and opportunity for conversation was limited.
His half conscious resentment toward the lineman prompted a question
as to his competency. "You have to go
around with him all the time," he
grumbled jealously.
Fidelia blushed.
"The lineman Is fully competent, but
I like to go.   I am very fond of���
An Imperative call for "central" Interrupted, and the sentence was not
completed.
Blyth remembered It uneasily. Was
It the lineman, or had she meant to say
that sbe liked driving ln the glorious
autumn weather?
He grew despondent as the weeks
went by, nnd, no matter how cold or
stormy the day, Edith gave the same
Irritating answer, "Out with the lineman."
Then he resolved io settle tiie uffdlr.
He loved the girl. He was sure of
himself now. He would boldly make
tho opportunity to tell her so. She
should choose between him and that>-
hls adjectives would not have been Uttered ln Fidelia's presence���lineman!
The thought of her was uppermost In
his mind ns he drove toward home on
a cold, windy day In early spring.
"Oh, if only I"��� He checked the half
uttered words, smiling tenderly ns ho
dreamed a young man's beautiful day
dreams of love and life.
Ahead of him in the lonely country
road he saw a horse and buggy standing by a telephone pole. Instinctively
be looked up.
"The lineman!" he exclaimed Interestedly. "I'm thankful Fidelia Isn't
with him this miserable day I"
The man climbed from the crossarm
and came down the pole with the swift
ease acquired by constant practice.
"He's a little chap," thought the doe-
tor. "Perhaps that's why Fidelia
watches him so closely."
The lineman sprang Into the buggy,
with his coil of wire and bag of tools,
driving rapidly away.
"I'll overtake him and speak with
him. I���I ought to be halfway decent
to a little chap like that"
But the lineman's slim, boyish figure,
erect In the lighter vehicle, held the
lines over nn animal that sped along
as If aware of his pursuit.
Blyth caught a glimpse of a rounded
red cheek under the lineman's close
cap. A wild thought a glimmering of
the truth, sent the blood to his own
cheeks, and he urged his horse on.
He reached the driveway at Hall's In
time to see the slim figure leap from
tbe buggy and dash into the house.
The doctor followed hurriedly.
"Go tell your sister that I must see
her at once!" His imperative command startled Edith into instant obedience.
When Fidelia entered the room, with
chocks that rivaled the crimson of the
soft robe she wore, Blyth sprang toward her.
She motioned him back with a repelling hand even while her eyes gave
him the assurance he sought.
"You know you don't approve���yon

"I don't care what I said! I was
wrong, Fidelia. I approve of anything
that you do and of everything that you
are, Fidelia, my little lineman!"
]   FOfi  THE  YOUNG  WIFE
A Few Question* That She Should Seriously Consider.
Have I ever heard the German say-
teg, "Man Is what he eats," and laid it
to heart with regard to my husband's
meals?
When I sigh for the freedom from
care tbat I enjoyed ln my maiden
days, do I also call to mind the ennui
and dullness I so often suffered from
in those days���ennui of which in my
busy married life I have no time even
to remember the existence?
Do I recollect that the widening of
her social circle Is a duty a mother
owes to her family? If she neglects
thia while her children are young they
will suffer for it when they grow up
suffer ln the loss of tbe friends they
may have had if she had exerted herself to make them.
Do I know that many a man's success In life was largely owing to his
wife's capacity, either in the way of
making influential friends or making a
good appearance on a small Income or
making by her clever management a
dollar go as far as some careless peo
pie make five go?���New York Amerl

Ungallant Cromwell.
Wc have heard a great deal lately of
the chivalrous consideration shown by
men and women ln the good old times,]
but the casual remarks of various writers of those days tend to dispel the Illusion, says the London Chronicle. John
Aubrey, for Instance, writing about'
1C78, tells us that "King James I.'s
court was so far from being civil tol
women that the ladles���nay, the queen
herself���could hardly pass by the king's'
apartment without receiving some af-l
front." And in one of Richard Symon'a1
pocketbooks there is the following ac*;
count of Oliver Cromwell's behavior at
his daughter's wedding In 1G57: "The!
lord protector threw about sack possetl
among the ladyes to soyle their rlchl
cloaths, which they took as a favour,
and also wett sweetmeats, and daubed!

A Rule That Will Help to Keep It Always In Order.
"How do you ever do It Betty?
Your room always looks as It It had
Just been cleaned and arranged for
my arrival, no matter when I come,
while as for mine���well, a cyclone
would refuse to strike It!"
"Nonsense, Laura! My neatness Is
nothing compared with Mabel's, for
instance. Why, when she wants to
remember an engagement ln the
morning she puts something a trifle
out of place the night before."
"Well, it's too much for me. How
do you both manage?"
"I'm sure I don't know about her,
but if I have any rules at all it is,
'Put everything back as soon as you're
through with it' That is to say, when
I go to bed I don't leave my things
hanging around to be put away ln the
morning, but I do It at once. Then,
when I'm through writing at my desk,
too, I see that everything Is in order
before I leave it. That's all there Is to

everything, and everything ln its
place.'" ��� Philadelphia North American.
KITCHEN  HELPS.
Keep all the kitchen utensils in one
place, and a small one at that It will
save time and steos.
Keep the cookbook directly over the
cooking table on a slanting shelf,
where It will remain open to be easily
read and stay clean.
Let the water ln which cabbage has
been boiled cool before pouring it down
the sink. This precaution will avoid
an unpleasant odor ln the kitchen.
When a pot or teakettle has boiled
dry pour boiled water into it never
cold water. There will be little danger
of the vessel cracking or the enamel
peeling If this is done immediately.
A kettle that Is placed directly upon
the fire soon becomes coated with soot
and lampblack, which are difficult to
remove. To prevent this grease the
bottom of the outside of the kettle.
The black can then be easily rubbed
off with a newspaper.
The Blush.
The blush is the sign which nature
hangs out to show where chastity and
honor dwell, and yet how many people, thoughtlessly perhaps, will tease
and torment a bashful and blushing
child until the girl Is taught to conquer
her blushes ind chase away the tears
hiding a soft heart beneath a brazen
face. Goethe, in company with a mother and a daughter, when the latter, being reproved for something, blushed
and burst into tears, said:
"How beautiful our reproach has
made our daughter. That crimson hue
and those silvery tears become her
much better than any ornament of gold
or pearls; those may be hung on the
neck of any woman, bnt these are never seen disconnected with moral parity."���Rev. Madison C. Peters.

Woman  Beats the Bank.
The Casino management has lost
several million francs because of tha
fact that a roulette wheel was out of
gear and periodically the ball stopped at a certain number. The winner
is a French widow nicknamed "Mamma Viaud" by the habitues of tho
place.
Some weeks ago she lost heavily at
the gaming table and having noticed
tho fault of that particular roulette
wheel, asked that her money be returned to her. The management refused, and Mamma Viaud took her
revenge.
With the help of two other adventurers she set to work to study the
wheel and placed her money whenever Bhe had found out that certain
numbers would be the winners.
The managers were for some time
mystified, and after the closing hours
held experiments with the croupiers
to find out how the woman won. The
numbers played by her and her assistants, which had been carefully taken down by special detectives during
the day, were played over again by
the employes and to the astonishment
of the directors it was found that they
won.
The management finally decided to
come to a compromise with Mamma
Viaud, and paid her $300,000 to learn
that one roulette wheel was out of
order.
Discolored Necks.
One of the common physical defects
to which women are prone Is a discolored neck, due, it may be, to dyes from
the clothing or to hair lotions, pomades,
etc., which work down from the head.
Of course, barring the possibility of
sunburn, the skin on the neck should
have the same hue as that on the shoulders. It is well, however, before resorting to artificial means, to see what hot
water, a coarse wash cloth and plenty
of good soap will do ln removing the
discoloration. If a month of this natural treatment does not bleach the
neck anoint It dally with peroxide of
hydrogen. In case this irritates the
skin a little vaseline or sweet almond
oil may be rubbed ln after the chemical
bas dried.
Superfluous Sugar-Tongs.
Fish-knives and sugar-tongs are
among the delicacies of English table
manners, but I am not so keen on
sugar-tongs. That lnmp of sugar which
you may take with your coffee���if you
want the unnecessary addition���is an
individual matter. It is your own
lump, your own fingers. And Oxford
has done well in standing out against
the new causes and refusing to supply sugar-tongs.���London Chronicle.
Fitting Waist U.nings.
When fitting the waist lining pin the
front edges together to form a seam toward the outside, being careful to have
them even at the top. A seam of three-
eighths of an Inch is allowed at each
side of the front and only this much
should be taken up ln pinning. A certain Indication that too much alteration has been made or that It bas been
made on the wrong seam. Is when tbe
grain of the lining material pulls out
of shape. The pattern is planned to
have the grain of the goods run in tho
lines that will best fit ln to the figure.
For this reason every section Is marked with a line of small perforations,
and ln cutting the lining these perforations must follow a lenjthwlse thread
of the material.
Small Turnips.
Turnips that are too small to pare
and slice economically before cooking
may be utilized by boiling whole ln
their jackets. When done, the skins
can be rubbed off with the hand the
same as beets. By this method the economical housewife Is able to use turnips that otherwise would go to the
hogs, and, according to the experience
of many who have tried this way, tho
small turnips are sweeter and have a
better flavor when so treated than tiie
larger ones cooked ln tho usual wax.

Henry Rogers, a stalwart lumberman not long ago closed a contract
with a large milling concern to cu'
and raft the timber from a big are
of virgin forest down the river to thi
Company's sawmill. It was a big undertaking and Rogers was employed j
on the job for several months with a
'considerable force of men. |
| j    I had met him on a hunting trip
| and he invited me to spend  a week
lor so with him at his camp, says a
well-known writer.    Of  course   I  ac-
1 cepted.    He  was camped  in  one ol I
'the best hunting sections that could
be  imagined  and  I  pocked   my  kit, i.
, took a large quantity of ammunition
| and caught the first train for a small j
town on the lower river, where Roc-1
era met me with  a gasoline  launch [
and conveyed my traps and mo to his I
camp, thirty miles down the river,    j
|   The forces of men in the woods and |
the hauling of the logs kept the game
stirred up considerably and I had sueh
a hunting trip as I had always dream-
led  of  but had  nover  before  experienced.    My  bag included two bears,
imany deer and one or two wolves, to
isay nothing of turkeys, greese, ducka
'and squirrels without count.
Down River on a Raft.
| About the time that my vacation
was drawing to a close Rogers mado
'ready an enormous raft of logs, which
he intended floating down the river,
and as he was to accompany the raft
in person I decided to go with him,
thinking that this would'be a novel
trip and possibly an exciting one, but
my wildest fancy had not prepared
me for the adventure we encountered.
Several tents were rigged up on the
raft, where we slept at night ns snug
as if we had been ashore. The cooking was done on open fires built upon boxes of earth. During the day I
traveled generally in the gasoline boat,
stopping along from time to time to
hunt out some stretch of forest or
visit a lake which Rogers told me ot,
and I had excellent sport. I could
travel a great deal faster than the
raft, of course, snd I sometimes let
it get five or ten miles ahead of mc
or I would run that distance down the
river ahead of it and hunt until it
overtook me or nightfall made me set
out in search of it.
As a rule we tied up at night, especially in difficult portions of the
river, where islands and shoals made
navigation for the raft beset with dangers of grounding it or splitting it
np on snags or the point of on island.
However, as we suffered some delay
and the contract time for the delivery
of the raft at the mill was drawing
close, Rogers decided to run ns much
as possible at night, and after that it
was not often that we tied up. Nature
favored us. The nights were almost
as bright as day after the moon came
up. which at that season occurred
about 11 o'clock.
The   Collision  With  the   Tree.
There was good light after moonrise
until morning, but between dark and
the hour for the moon to make its
appearance it was as dark as a pocket
and the traveling was beset with
grave dangers. More than once on
these occasions did the raft bump into
the bank, driving the timbers together
with a sullen, crushing sound.
One night, as we were traversing a
most difficult stretch of water, a narrow channel where the great raft had
scarcely more than room to pass, I
was standing out forward where Rogers and three others were working the
Bweeps, guiding the unwieldy mass of
timbers through the narrow channel.
We were navigating a difficult bend,
a point that required the greatest skill
in steering, when the current got the
upper hand and the raft was hurled
toward the bank with a force that was
amazing.
Just at this point a large, crooked
oak tree hung low over the water
and the raft swept beneath it. The
extreme end of the foremost log struck
the trunk-with a shock that shook
the tree as if it had been a reed.
The Panther Spring Upon Him.
I had braced myself for the shock
the best I could, and I should have
retained my legs if it had not been
for a long, lithe object that projected
itself out of the rank foliage of the
tree straight in my face. It sailed
through the air like a flash of light
and with an unearthly scream it
alighted upon my breast and its sharp
claws tore through my heavy hunting
clothes as if they had been the veriest
gauze.
Tbere was no mistaking what it was.
It was a gigantic panther, and my
heart turned sick within me as I
realized it. The force of the leap
threw me flat upon my back, but the
enraged animal did not loosen its
death grapple in the least. I could
fee! its hot breath burning my cheek I
and its sharp claws as they dug deeper and deeper into my flesh. It is a
wonder that I did not become unconscious, but I was not to be so spared.
I thought every moment thnt tho
animal would seize my throat in its
jaws and it seemed an age that I lay
there helpless with its cat-like eyes
glaring into my own, scarcely six
inches away. I was utterly helpless
and resigned to my fate. ]
It certainly was not more than three
or four seconds that I lay thus, al- j
though it seemed an age before I saw
Rogers approaching me with a heavy
axe raised above his head. i
His Rescue by a Companion. I
He was running across the logs and
once I saw him leap high into tlie
air, but I did not then know why he
did this. Afterwards I discovered
that the raft had broken up and that
I was upon a small portion of it that
had gone on an independent cruise. I
Rogers had jumped across a rapidly '
widening space of water to my rescue
and had he missed his calculation of
the distance his life might have paid
the penalty.    The panther saw him
approaching, anc1 .villi a snarl of rage
it sprang from iny recumbent torn,
straight for tbe approaching woodman.
Rogers saw it coming and swung Iii?
axe above his bend like some nneient
conception of the pod of buttle. Just
at this moment the" raft swung around
a bend of the river, which threw us
out of the heavy shadow of the timber  into the  moonlight,
I hnve never seen a more inspirim*
sight tban Rogers, standing with his
axe poised and every muscle of his
magnificent form tense, with anticipation of the shock, and the panther
leaping straight for his throat. With
a .flash of light the axe dOHCCTidsd

instant  tlie    blade    of    the  weapon
I crashed deep into the sp.imai's skull
~a it fell, inert and lifeless, at the
| foot of my rescuer.
That panther's skin is the rug beneath my feet as I write, and plainly
upon the top of its head is the scar
of the blow that ended its life. The
taxidermist who prepared it for me
wanted to sew up the cut so that it
would be invisib'e. but I would have
none of it.
VANITY'S  VISIONS.
A  USEFUL  DEVICE.
CURIOUS GHOST STORY.
Bridegroom  Sees  Spectre  of   His   Mother Who   Is Still  Living.
The freaks of a so-called spectre are
alarming a hamlet some forty miles
from Cardiff, says The London Mail.
The ghost has been paying unwelcome
attentions to a well known inhabitant
of the hamlet who was recently married.
The trouble commenced by his finding himself lying on his bedroom floor
beside his bed one morning. Naturally, he put this down to nightmare.
The morning after, however, on
awaking, he found himself at the
other end of the room, and he then
became somewhat uneasy. His wife on
both occasions had slept peacefully.
The third night, however, both kept
awake, and their vigil was rewarded
by a sight of their mysterious visitor,
who appeared shortly after the traditional hour of midnight. A trustworthy correspondent ascertained
from the victim that the spirit took
tho form of his own mother, who is
still alive and well. He says that his
mother opposed his marriage with the
lady of his choice very Btrongly, and
he thinks that the nocturnal visits are
acts of revenge.
In order to drive forth the unwelcome intruder, the victim persuaded
several of his male friends to remain
in his house one night, but, although
the ghost appeared aa usual to the
young man, his wife, and his mother-
in-law, the other watchers were quite
unable to discern the strange presence.
The young man's mother-in-law de-
olares that on one occasion she approached the spectre, who said, quite
distinctly, "Well, what do you want?"
She also says that she temporarily
lost the power of the right side of
her body at the meeting.
The victim declares that the spirit
has several times accompanied him
part of the way to the village, where
ho is engaged as a collier. His comrades are groatly perturbed by the frequent appearance of the spectre, and
believe firmly in the victim's veracity.
The vicar of the parish and several
others have visited the house and
tried in vain to elucidate the mystery.
Summer Silks That Are Beautiful, but
Expensive.
There Is a new silk slightly suggestive of the rajah variety, called by the
salesmen mirage, but which boasts a
high sounding French appellation. The
silk is In a two tone mixture, with a
dark background over which are shadows of a lighter shade. Changeable
silks are not a novelty, to be sure, but

MAKE WAR ON WOMEN.
Ungallant Cabbies Try to Break Up
Competition  of  Weaker  Sex,
Th** cabmen of Paris are ungallant
enough to make war on the new cab-
women. The success of the cabwomen
has roused their ire, and they are
employing all sorts of means to interfere with their female competitors.
Mme. de Courcelles, one of the
women recently licensed, was driving
���.HI*.  DB COOIICKl.LKS.
her cab in the Rue de Rivoli the other
night, when a cabman deliberately
drove his vehicle between her cab
and the curb. This caused her horse
to swerve, and the cab was struck
by a passing motor car and partly
wrecked. One of the two women who
were inside was slightly injured.
The offending cabman tried to drive
off, but Mme. de Courcelles sprang
down from her box, seized him by
the collar and held him till the police
arrived.
There was an angry altercation, several other cabmen violently taking the
part of their male colleague. But a
number of pedestrians gave testimony ic favor of the woman, and ths
cabman is to appear in court.
The Future of Mere Man.
"The year 2007 will see men no
longer figuratively, but literally, the
slaves of women. The House of Commons will resound with the fieroe party cries of the Women Labor members, striving to drown the Opposition
Bhrieks of the Anti-Man League. Uniformed Amazons will be called in to
keep order during the debates, which
will be on such subjects as 'Shall men
be allowed pocket-money' or 'Are we
to be again degraded by allowing men
votes?' TheBe and kindred subjects
will give the gentle sex much food for
reflection.
"In the Law Courts we shall find
bewigged female judges. Legal decisions will not, as heretofore, be based
upon the old-fashioned methods ol
weighing evidence, but will be administered on a rational system, whereby
the feeling and emotions of the judge
will be the only criterion. In the
happy English homes man will do the
cooking, and wash and dress the babies, 'Mere Man,' will realize at last
that he is a cumberer of the ground."
���Pearson's Magazine.
"Forty Shilling" Day.
At the little village of Wotton, five
miles from Dorking, recently, the
curious custom of "forty shilling" day
was observed. Tho custom found its
birth in 1718, when an eccentric man
named Glanville, by his wiU, directed
that five boys should visit his tomb
on the anniversary of Mb burial, and,
placing their hands on the tombstone,
repeat the Lord's Prayer, the Apostles'
Creed and the Ten Commandments.
The property set aside was estimated
to yield ��30 annually, and the boys
for saying the prayers at his tomb
annually were to be each rewarded
with ��2, this payment giving rise to
the appellation "forty shilling day."
The balance of money is devoted to
the apprenticing of suitable boya.
A Placa For the Duster When It la
Not In Commission.
Where to put the duster when the
dusting Is finished has always been a
mystery. If put In the closet It Is hard
to find again; If left about the room it
Is unsightly. The Japanese have called
on their dolls to help them out of this
difficulty, as you may see In the illustration. Follow these directions, and
you will transform this everyday necessity Into an ornament. The objectionable duster will then look well anywhere.
Take a Japanese doll.  Ton will find
a piece of wood extending from the
top of the head to the neck.   Remove
this.   Carefully take olT the hair and
the   circular   piece   of   pasteboard   to
1 which It is attached and keep them for
future use.  Under this disk there Is a
soft spot just the size of the hole required, which must be cut out.
i    Tbe next step Is to make a ruffle for
j the neck.   Get some pretty material,
stiff enough to stand out nicely.   Vou
| will require for n head two Inches and
' a half In diameter a piece one yard
I long and four Inches wide.   Trim one
! edge ln n tasteful way.   Satin ribbon
three-quarters of an  Inch wide looks
I well.   The other edge of this strip Is
gathered to fit the doll's neck.    Now

Silk and cotton fabrics. ,
A new decoration In skirt trimmings
1b a shuped flounce covered with tiny
pin tucks. Accordion plaited bands so
placed that they stand up Is another
variety. I
Paris bands are something different
In trimmings this spring. These bands
vary from a quarter of an inch to two
Inches iu width and have one straight
edge, the other being serrated or finished In an irregular fashion. They
are used to trim waistcoats, effects on
Eton jackets and pony coats.
The gown seen in the cut is of natural colored pongee in a smart check
design showing lines of blue on the
ecru ground. Blue ribbon velvet and
ecru lace help to make it a very chic
little frock. JUDIC CHOLLET.

Semimade Frocks In Lawn and Lace
For Slim Purses.
The girl who wants a dainty white
muslin dress at small expense and
trouble will do well to purchase in the
shops one of the skirts that are all
made and ready to put on the waist-
baud and to be seamed up the back.
A charming skirt of this description
Is in fine white lawn, with a deep tucked ruffle at the bottom. Above this
ruffle Is a band of insertion, which
trimming also outlines the seams. Material for the waist Is included in the
pattern, which In a very good department shop Is 2 cents less than $8.

made state, as well as colored and

comes arranging Us hair. To do this
take one-half of the circular piece you
have cut from the head with hair attached and fasten it with glue on the
forehead so that It will serve for a
bang.   The holder Is now complete.
A feather duster to go with this
holder can be bought for a few pennies or is made by lapping the ends of
two or three feathers one and one-half
Inches from the end of a twelve Inch
stick. Wind a string around these to
bold them while placing other feathers
just a little lower; wind the string
around these securely and repeat this
process until you have used about
forty small rooster feathers. Over all
this wind tightly a piece of thin wire.
If you wish to ornament the stick,
cover the wire with bright colored'
ribbon or leather. A bamboo stick la
preferable, but If any other Is used It
can be improved by gilding. Now pass
the duster through the doll's head, and
the whole may be hung up by a loop
attached to the back of the ruffle, or,
which Is a prettier way, may be placed
in a vase.
A New Hairbrush.
A novelty In the vanity line Is an
electrical hairbrush, which differs from
tlie ordinary electrical hairbrush attached by cords to a battery ln that
It has a small storage battery attached
to the back of the brush, doing away
with the wires and separate battery,,
and tints requiring but one hand to
manipulate it The battery Is detachable and may be used for massage
movements for rheumatism, neuralgia
and the other ills which electricity la
believed by some to allay. It also has'
a sponge attachment for concentrating
the current on any part of the body.
The storage battery is ln a small nickel
tube, easily handled, and has to be recharged every three months. It comes'
In a leather box with Its hairbrush and
sponge attachments and suggests a
nice gift for the woman who likes to
experiment with all the new aids to
perpetual youth and beauty.
