Still they Come.
Aa instancing what the fostering
Hie fruit Industry will mean to the Slocnn in lho next decade, wi:Iiin the past
twelve months, sixty families have
settled upon land adjacent to Nakusp.
During the last few days a family of
Hollanders arrived with their effect.!,
and altogether there are now thirty of
this nationality upon Nakusp land,
Unit of that rugged type fiom which
are moulded the hardy pioneers that
beget the future rulers if our land when
the races have nssimi'nlcd, these
strangers within our gales wiil effect
great changes, nnd who is there that
cannot look forward ten years to see lhe
dream of Thos. Aliiel realized. Fourteen yenrs ago Hint mnn talked of fruit
lands in Nakusp, and scoffers deiided
hiin, but to-day his is the big I.T. of the
apple game, nnd is being poin'cl cut as
" the man who sell* the lnnd that grows
(he big red apple." What a change
has come over fair Nakusp since lhe
(own lir.-t sprung into existence. Mineral, of courte, was responsible fur its
mushroom growth, nnd in the days
when silver c.jiil.l be gleaned from the
surface of our hills for th* scratching,
those two handsome hotels, Hie Grand
and the Leland were constructed to
accommodate the largo number of
mining men who wero ns thick as bees.
Now mineral Is8 liloin beard mentioned
except by those early pioneers who will
advocate to thvir dying days the policy
of deep prospecting. All around one
hears conlioveiiies as to the relative
merits of such nnd such a variety of
fruit, the utility of tlio S'lil, lbe virtues
of fertilizeis, coloring of fruit, and disposition of the same. Ami lest there be
any misgivings as to the future of the
industry, wliich is but yet in embryo,
we may mention that there are foiiic
eleven thousand acres of first-class land
which  in   the  next ten  years  will be
peopled by a   jiatdy  ami   prosperous
community,  wilh   a   market  at   theii
doors.   Tbis desideratum  is even   now
I assuming healthy pro* ortions.   A  year

zeal and progress were an  incentive  to
I others    to   emulate    their    example.
| and now sixty   farmers  are   grouped
0f  in a settlement on  lbe borders of the
town,   and   llieso    familiis   are    now
petitioning the government for nu additional school for th* ir children.
Our representative paid a visit lo tlie
new settlement this week, and we confess to being agreeably surprlsad nt the
maiked progress made since our visit
to the ground twelve months ago Then
not a shack or cottage dotted the landscape. To-day several hundred acres
arc cleared, fence 1, and planted lo fruit
trees, and subslartial dwelling bouses
with happy occupants stud lhe land.
Willi the exception of lhe recent arrivals
from Hullaud, the remaining fnu.ilies
uie from the North-west nnd tlie shores
of lhe Ailatilic. Conversing freely with
lhe new settlers wc learned of their unbounded enthusiasm for the climate ami
conditions, ami all agreed that in comparison with Ihe mild winter they had
jiiit passed through, a 50 below eastern
temperature had no further hold on
their affections. In nearly every instance, they spoke of being joined at an
early date by relations, who weie prospective settlers.
All around great activity prevailed.
In one block lorineily owned by the
Frontier Land and Investment Co.,
the future Qi'ohqui owners were tilling
several acres of this recently acquired
sub-divisicn. Strawbeirics planted last
year arc now healthy and blooming on
every ranch, n*id spuds are being sown
and I'ibb.cil iu wilh no assistance from
forlilinoi*. Hoie a recent nirival Irom
the Guernsey Isle wrs ploughing up ten
aurcs of land he had cleared (his spring,
and iu thu adjoining block the roar ol
Ginnt powder denoted havoc among re-
ffactory stump*. Oi.e motherly old
soul fiom IheEiit wns keeping home
for her two sons, and she told us that
her boys who hnd hitherto been weaklings iii  the East,   were  now   strong,
biawny fellows with the appe:i:es of
horses. Por herself, she loved the
change if life, but the had a grievance
in the fact that no Methodist minister
had yet visited the settlement,* and as
many of I In newcomers were affiliated
with that body, they felt godless in con-
s -queue:*-. Wc need only mention this
to assure attention on the part of the
Molhoilist minister at New Denver.
On lhe Abriel ranch a largo gnng of
men were engaged in clearing, but already upon this land there are several
thousands of Irecs and bushes which
givo a prolific yield yearly.
Prom a staple milling industry to an
agricultural one may even yet appear
difficult of realisation ; but it has come,
and so strongly has it fascinate I and
taken a bold of lbe people that we venture to predict a rivalry for supremacy
that will be healthy and stimulating to
ilie growth of the Silvery Ploean.

W. S. Fisher, Winnipeg, a piinc'pal

Maddy never knew how she lived
through those bright, autumnal days,
wben the gorgeous beauty of decaying
nature seemed so cruelly to mock
her nneuish. As long as Guy was
there, breathing the snme air with
herself, she kept up. vaguely conscious of a shadowy hope that something would happen without her instrumentality, something to ease tbe
���viTht pressing so hard upon her,
but when she heard that he had really
pone, that a line had been received
(in-** bim nfter he was on board the
steamer, all hope died out of her
At last there came to her three let-
t th. onf> from Luoy, tine Irom the doctor, and one from Guy himself. Lucy 8
pbe opened first, reading ol the sweet
girl's great happiness in seeing her
t'-*rline boy ncnin, ol her sorrow to
lind him so thin and pale, and changed in all save his extreme kindness
to her, his careful study of her wants,
nnd evident anxiety to please her in
c-verv respect. On this Lucy dwelt
until Maddy's henrt seemed to leap up
nnd almost turn over in its casing, so
fiercely it throbbed and ached with
The doctor's next was opened, and
Mnddy read with blinding tears that
which for a moment increased her
pain and sent to her bleeding heart
an added pang oi disappointment, or
a sense of wrong done to her, she
could not tell wliich. Dr. Holbrook
wai to be married the same day with
Li"**-   nnd to Lucy's sister, Mafgaret.
"Maggie, I call her," he wrote,
"because that name is so much like
my first love, Maddy, who tl��ought I
was too old to be her husband, and so
made me very wretched for a time,
until T met and knew Margaret Atherstone. T have told her of you."Maddy;
'I would not marry her without, and
she seems willing to take me as I
am. We *--*inll come home with Guy,
who is the mere wreck of what he was
when I last saw him. He has told me,
Maddy, all about it, and though I
doubly respect you now, I cannot say
that I fiink you did quite right. Bet-
*ter that one Bhould suffer than two,
and Lucy's is a nature which will forget far sooner than yours or Guy's.
I pity vou all."
This "almost killed Maddy; she did
not love the doctor, but the knowledge
that he was to marry another added
to her misery, while what he said of
her decision was the climax of the
whole. Had her sacrifice been for nothing? Would it have been better if
she had not sent Guy away? It was
anguish unspeakable to believe so,
nn^ thn shadowy woods never echoed
to so bitter a cry of pain as that with
whicV. she laid her head OU the
prr->"r���.. and for a brief moment wished thnt, she mieht die. God pitied His
child then, and for the next half-hour
sh��  hardly  knew  what she  suffered.
There was Guy's letter yet to read,
and with a listless indifference she
opo**--1 it, starting as there dropped
into her lap a small enrte de visite, a
perfect likeness of Guy, who sent it,
he said, because he wished her to
have so much of himself. It would
make him happier to know she could
aometimes look at him, just as he
sho"ld trnze upon her dear picture after it was a sin to love the original.
And this was all the direct reference
he made to the nast, except where he
spoke of Lucy, telling how happy she
was nnd how if anything could reconcile him to his fate, it was the
knowing bow pure and good and loving was the wife he was getting. Then
lie wrote of the doctor nnd Margaret,
whom lie described ns a dashing, bril-
liant-_5_rfl. the veriest tease and madras TnVtliP wmld, and the exact opposite of Maddy.
This letter, so calm, so cheerful in
its tone, had a quieting effect on Maddy, who rend it twice, and then placing it in her bosom, Btarted for the
cottage, meeting on the way with
Floia, wbo was seeking for her in
great alarm. Uncle Joseph had had
n fit she said, and fallen upon the
floor, " cutting his forehead badly
against the sharp point of the stove.
Hurrying on, Moddy found that what
Fl- ��� had said was true, and sent
immediately for the physician, who
car"- **' one* but shook his head
f'""hlfiillv as hi" examined his patient.
There were all the symptoms of a

finally yielded, wondering what had
prompted this visit to the cottage.

came, and so did not hear her voice
as in the tidy kitchen she talked to
Maddy, appearing extremely agitated,
and flashing her eyes rapidly from
one "��*���' of the room to another, resting now upon the tinware hung upon
the wall and now upon the gourd
swimming in the water pail
standing in the old-fashioned sink,
with the wooden spout, directly
over the pile of stones covering
the drain. These . things were
familiar to the proud woman; she
hnd seen them before, and the sight
frf them now brought to her a most
remorseful re_***et for the past, while
her henrt ached cruelly ns she wished

estimation he was the embodiment of
every manly beauty, and the knowledge thnt be loved her, his sister's
little hired girl, tilled her with pride
and vanity. A great change had
come to them both since those days,
and Agnes, watching him and smoth-
" ering back the pain which arose to her
lips at sight of him, felt that for the
fearful chnnee in him she was answerable. Intellectual, talented, admired nnd sought by all he had been
once; he wns a mere wreck now, and
Agnes' brenth came in short, quick
gasps, as glnncing lurtively around tc
��ee that no one was near, she laid her
hnnd upon his forehead, and parting
I his thin hair, said, pityingly: "Poor
I Joseph."
The touch nwo*te him, and starting
up he stared wildly nt ber. while some
memory of the past seemed to be
struggling through the misty clouds,
obscuring his mental vision.
"Who nre you, lady? Who, with
eyes and hair like hers?"
"I'm the 'madam' from Aikenside,"
Agne= said, quite loudly, as Flora
passed the door. Then when she was
gone she added, softly: "I'm Sarah���
Sarah Agnes Morris."
It seemed for a moment to burst
upon him in its full reality, antl to
her dying day Agnes would never
foreet the look upon his face, the
Bmile of perlect happiness breaking
through the rain of tears, the love, the
tenderness mingled with distrust,
which thnt look betokened ns he continued gazing at ber, but said to her
not a word. Agnin her hand rested on
his forehead, and taking it now in
his he held it to the light, laughing
insanely at its soft whiteness; then
touching the costly diamonds which
flashed upon him the rainbow hues,
he said: "Where's that little ring I
bn.-"i*t for you?"
She had anticipated this, and took
from hor poccket a plain gold ring,
kept until that day where no one
could find it, and holding it up to
him, said: "Here it ia. Do you remember it?"
"Yes, yes," and his lips began to
quiver witb a grieved, injured expression. "He could give you diamonds and I couldn't. That's why you
left me, wasn't it, Sarah���why you

he drew her down until his lips touched hers. And Acnes suffered it. She
eould not return the kisB, but she
did not turn awny from him, and she
let him enress her hnir, and wind it
round his fingers, whispering: "This

"Yes, I am Sarah," she would answer, while the smile so painful to
see would again break over his face
as he told how much he had missed
her, and asked if she had not come
to stay till he died.
"There's something wrong," he
said; "somebody dead, and seems as

Like a sudden revelation it came

leave, when Agnes, lilting her head,
called her to come in. She did so,
antl standing at the opposite Bide of
the bed, she snid, questioningly:
"7*ui nre Sarah Morris?"
For a moment the eyelids quivered,
then the neck arched proudly, aB if it
were a thing of which she was not
ashamed, and Agnes answered: "Yes,

Moddy ever knew of her history, as it
was never referred to again, except
that evening, When Agnes said to her,
pleadingly: "Neither Guy, nor Jessie,
nor anvone need know what I have
told you."
"They shall not," was Maddy's reply; and from that moment the past,
so far as Agnes was concerned, was a
sealed page to both. With this bond
of confidence between them, Agnes
felt herself strangely drawn toward
Maddy, while, if it were possible,
something of her olden love was renewed for the helpless man who
clung to her now instead of Maddy,
refusing to let her go; neither had
Agnes any disposition to leave him.
She should stay to the last, so she
said; and she did, taking Maddy's
place, and by her faithfulness and
care winning golden laurels in the
opinion of the neighbors, who marveled at first to see so gay a lady at
Uncle Joseph's bedside, attributing it
all to her friendship for Maddy, just
as they attributed his calling her
gar-i* to a crazy freak. She did resemble Sarah Morris a very little,
they said; and in Maddy's presence
they sometimes wondered where Sarah
was, repeating strange things which
they had heard of her; but Mdady
kept the secret from everyone, so that
even Jessie never suspected why her
mrii***' stayed day after day at the
cottage; watching and waiting until
the last day of Joseph's life.
She was alone with him then, so
that Maddy never knew what passed
between them. She had left them together for an hour, while she did
some errands; nnd when she returned Agnes met her at the door, and

Curious Origin of This Terrible Engine
of Destruction.
The origin of the Maxim gun was
somewhat curious. Mr. Maxim (Sir
Hiram) after the close of the great
Civil war in America was visiting one
of the southern battlefields. He picked
up a Springfield rifle and begun firing
at a target! He soou discovered, to bis
amazement, that bis shoulder was all
black and blue with the recoil. This
set him thinking, aud he soon conceived the Idea of utilizing this force
iu a gun which would tire automatically.
He went to London full of his Idea,
hut no oue would listeu to him. ln
Birmingham tbe chief man In a factory refused to make a bolt gun.
Iu despair Mr. Maxim packed up his
trunks and went to Paris. In two
weeks the work was doue. This gun
Mr. Maxim exhibited In Loudon in
1885. He spoke of It theu as tbe gun
of the future. It is now tbe gun of the
present It ls a wonderful gun and a
deadly one. By adjusting the indicator It will fire bullets at any rate from
one per minute to (100.
This terrible weapon Is started by
the firing of the first shot. After that
it works Itself and will keep going as
long ns cartridges can be fed luto the
machine. When one belt of 333 ls exhausted, all that is necessary Is to
hook ou nnother.
Wheu the British government gave
an order for the gnu they stipulated
that It should not weigh more than a
hundred pounds und should be capable
of flrlug a thousand rounds lu four

which weighed thirty-live pounds and

Uses of White Oak.
White oak is cne of the most widely
distributed and commercially important trees of the United States, and
its total annual product of over 2,000,*
000,000 feet of lumber is more than
double that ot any other hardwood.
The wood is compact and close
grained, hard, tough, strong, heavy,
and durable in contact with the soil.
By a peculiar mode of sawing by
which the boards are cut nearly
parallel to the pith rays, the silver
grain is shown, furnishing the handsomely figured panels, ceiling, and
moulding of "quarter-sawed" oak.
White oak is the favorite timber for
railroad cross-ties, and of the 90,000,-
000 ties purchased each year nearly
one-half are of oak, the greater part
ot which are white oak. It is also
an ideal material for tight cooperage
manufacture. Other uses are for car
Btock, boards, planking, beams, dimension stuff of all sizes, ship building, tool handles, wagon spokes aud
furniture and basket veneer.
Red oak and black oak exceed white
oak in rapid growth and early maturity, but the latter has a marked advantage in its greater ability to withstand shading, in its longevity, and
in its inherent resistence to decay,
insects and fungi.

Historic Ruins May Be Seen at South*
ampton,  England.
The building, or what remains ol
the building, said to have been Canute's Castle, at Southampton, England, certainly possesses the evidences
of antiquity. The claim that the portions of the arches still remaining are
characteristic of Norman style will
pass unchallenged, because of the resemblance, they bear to what iB undoubtedly recognized as such.
But a small portion of the arches
remain, while the .space which they
once spanned has since been filled
with stone work, yet they are readily
traceable, whether the result of design, in order to give them prominence or for some other cause. The
masonry they represent could not be
said to indicate the handiwork of
skilled workmen, but, on the contrary, the result of haste with the
superadded desire for substance rather than architectural beauty.
While tlie iron bars which were fastened over its windows when the
building was transformed into a prison are permitted to remain, yet the
dominant claim the structure makes
upon history is the fact that it was
one of the eight outreports in England chosen during the reign of Edward II. for the export trade of wool.
As is well-known, the reason the number of ports for this trade was so
narrowly restricted in England was
to rend r more certain the collection
of the duties imposed upon the
'1 he oflice of custodian of the
"tion," or welghmaster of the wool
exported, was one which the heads of
noble bouses did not hesitate to ask
for and once secured became hereditary. The office of "Iron," or weigh-
master of Southampton, was held by
the Enrla of Warwick, and among others of the line of that illustrious family the kingmaker once held the office of weighmaster of wool at Southampton.
It is generally believed, however,
that the great earl committed to his
servants or tenants the ordinary duties of the office It seems like indulging in hyperbole to permit the
contemplation of the man who in his
day wss "the greatest man in England
but the King," the man who despite
the protection extended to him by
Edward II. brought tlie head of Piers
Gavcston to the block, could bring
himself to the dull task of weighing
The beam from which were sus
pended the scales used by the great
earl is still to be seen. The building
has no claim on architectural beauty.

Jews of East London Against Sunday
Closing  Proposal.
Lord Avcbury has provoked the
wrath of the costermongers, street
sellers, and minor traders in the east
of London. The Jewish section ol
the community in particular are up
in arms against his lordship's bill foi
the prevention of Sunday trading
which is to be introduced in thi
House of Lords, nnd hnve expressed
their determination to save the well-
known Sunday market of Middlesex
street (Petticoat lane) from annihilation.
Recently at Aldgate a conference-
was held under the auspices of the
Whitnchapel and Spitalfields Male and
Female Costermongers' and Street
Sellers Union, when the bill was con
demned as a measure whose primary
purpose was not so much to secure
physical rest as to impose religious
persecution on the Jews. A hundred
delegates, representing a membership
of about 70,000, attended the conference, over which Councillor A. Valentine presded.
Mr. B. 8. Straus, M. P., declared
there was no chance of the bill as
drafted ever becoming law Ho was
one of the last men who desired that
any portion of the community should
be overworked, but he had always
thought that this question of Sunday
trading should be regarded as one of
a hygienic rather than a religious
character. While approving of legislation which would compel men to
take one day's rest should be taken
it was both unfair and unjust.
Mr. Straus declared that they would
he able to "clip Lord Avebury's
wings" bv bringing in the Hygenic
League Bill, which, if carried, will
penalize those who try to work more
than six days a week and yet enable
the Jew to keep his Sabbath bo long
as he is not a nuisance to his neighbors.
"An object of religious intolerance," was the description of thp bill
given by Lieut.-Col. T. W. Richardson, pastor of tlio Sabbntharian or
Seventh Day Baptists' Church at
Mr, H. H. Gordon, L. C. C, also
protested against any persecution of
the Jews, and uhnrnetemed any attempt to compel them to stop Sunday
trading, when they had already observed their Snbbnth on the previous
dny. ns a great wrong to an inoffensive people.

How  the  Imperialistic   Emblem   Cam*
to Be Adopted.
An old French pamphlet published ln
1815 tells how th�� violet came to be the
emblem of the Imperialist, or Napoleonic, party in France.
Three days before going Into exile on
the island of Elba Napoleon was walking up and down a garden at Fontalne-
bleu, discussing his future with the
Due de Bassano and General Bertrand.
He was still uncertain whether he
should go to Elba quletiy at the bidding of his enemies or whether he
should try to offer some resistance.
The Due de Bnssauo was urging him to
strike a blow for his liberty���bnd advice surely.
As the trio walked back and forth
they came upon a child three or four
years old who was picking violets.
Napoleon called the baby to hlm nnd
asked for his flowers, and the little
thing gave tbe emperor all he had. A
silence In the political talk followed
until Napoleon, who always hnd a vein
of superstition Ip his reasonings, said:
"Well, gentlemeu, I am thinking of
thnt child. That chance meeting seems
to me like a piece of secret advice,
warning me for the future to Imitate
the modesty of this flower. Yes, the
violet shall henceforward be the emblem of my desires."
"Sire," Baid Bertrand boldly, "for
your majesty's glory I like to think
that feeling will lust uo longer In you
than the flowers that Inspired It."
But the emperor, silent aud unheeding now, withdrew and went to his
private rooms. The next dny he was
seen walking In thc garden with n
bunch of violets In his buttonhole and
stooping now and again to pluck more.
A man named Choudleu, a grenadier
of the guard, was ou sentry duty, and,
taking advantage of the laxity of discipline that prevailed lu this hour of
ruin, he ventured to speak to the fallen
"In another year, sire, the violets
will be growing thicker here. You can
gather them with lesd trouble."
"What!" was the answer. "Do you
suppose I will be here next year?"
"Perhaps sooner. We soldiers hope
"But do you know that I leave for
Elba day after tomorrow?"
"Your majesty will suffer the storm
to pass."
"Are your comrades talking and feeling as you do?"
"Almost all of them."
"Ah, well, tell them to feel, but not
to talk. Wheu your sentry duty Is
over, go to General Bertrand. He will
give you twenty napoleons. But keep
the secret."
Choudleu did not keep entirely secret
the story of his conference with his
majesty, but he threw a veil over his
allusions and taught the other soldiers
to do so by calling their great and
worshiped leader Father Violet. Little
by little talk about Father Violet
reached the public, and to wear a
bunch of violets by the time the next
season came around was a recognized
sign of Imperialistic sympathies. To
this day violets are not worn in the
same general way in France that they
are here and In England, because they
are felt to be a political badge. A legitimist would not be seen with a
bunch In his buttonhole any more than
he would wear a republican tricolor
Force of Habit.
A Boslon psychologist was recently
reminded of the story of the Russian
Jailer who, changing his occupation,
found the chief Interest of his leisure
moments ln catching birds, putting
them In cages and selling them to the
highest bidder.
The scientist, having to attend a
series of lectures in a large public hall,
struck up acquaintance with the janitor of the building and soon noted ln
him a suggestive bent of mind. The
man seemed fond of counting the people and would occasionally report the
exact number present. "We have 115
here tonight," he would say, or "Just
201 all told," or, when the hall was
crowded, "I make It 370." There was a
problem In nil this, but it took some
time for the psychologist to solve It.
A bit of friendly, familiar talk, continually renewed, did tbe business, for
It brought out the fact that the jaultor
had spent many of the previous years
of his life as warden in an eastern
prison. With rifle on shoulder from
some inclosing wall the man had counted his convicts until the habit became
Ingrained. In the recesses of his brain
the lecture ball took the shape of a
Jail yard, and thc audience were his
prisoners. He counted because he
wished to know if all were there.

milky waters; from the azure mountains of Abyssinia and through the
heat of that savage country the Nile
flows to Sudan. Created in this fashion and seeming to have rushed down
south rather than it does run northward, the Egyptian Nile is formed and
In return touches the city only to take
Its course again to the sea. Khartum
Is built above this concourse of waters,
but the windy currents have less Interest for her than has the melancholy
waste whose historic m'les make the
Sudan famous for both defeat nnd victory. The desert hns nlready fetched
famine and destruction, and, if not
quite so practically swarming now, the
wilderness is nevertheless always sinister, and It is over this savage country thut Khartum must keep vigilant
guard.���Marie Vnn Vorst In limner's.

Tile unique power belonging to Zam-
Buk for growing new healthy skin
when it has been destroyed by injury,

the recent experience of Mr. J. Scho-

(Mr. William Ball , of London) was
severely and terribly burned through
an explosion of kerosene oil. He was
taken to the hospital where he suffered intense pain. The wounds refused
to heal, and the doctors decided to resort to skin grafting, and I consented
to have some skin transplanted from
my legs to his body. Although this
was dene on several occasions, the
skin refused "to tuke" untii Mr. Ball

appl'ed Zam-Buk, new healthy skin
begun to grow. I then used Znm-
Buk for the places on my leg from
which the skin was removed, and I

grown, and therefore consider Zam-

The General's Significant Statement
After Sailors Creek.
My last official Intercourse with General Lee was on the retreat I was
sent to him with dispatches from President Davis and reached him near midnight of April li uear Klce'e station. I
approached without being challenged
by a Blugle sentinel and found bim
standing near a smoldering fire with
one of his bauds resting on an nni-
julnnce wheel. He was dictating some
order to Colonel Marshall, who sat ln
the ambulance with a lap desk receiving his dictation. As General Lee
spoke he gazed Into the bed of coals
as If weighing every word. There was
no staff or escort about, so far as I
could see. Touching Sailors Creek, he
spoke bitterly aud said In answer to
Mr. Davis' desire to kuow his proposed
line of retreat that It was beyond his
control; tbat he had intended to retreat by tbe Hue of the Danville road,
but had been forced off that route by
tbe arrival of Sheridan ahead of him
j at Burkville; that he was then following the line of thc Soutbside road to
Lynchburg, but tbe euemy was outmarching him aud might force him off;
tbat his (novemeuts were dependent
on the developments of each hour, aud
then he added: "How can I tell? A
few more Sailors Creeks nud It will all
be over���Just where I thought It would
end from thu. beginning." When I flrst
published this statement Its truthfulness was questioned. Fortunately I
afterward saw two of his stall, both
of whom snld they had heard him express himself In the same way. Tbere
may have beeu times when General
Lee, elated by Borne of his surprising
successes, felt hopeful about the triumph of our cause. From the probabilities based on numbers und resources
his judgment may have been wnrped
away now and then by the feeling ha
expressed when, after Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg and
Chancellorsvllle, he said, "No general
ever commanded such troops as those
under me." But his mind was too
mathematical ln Its workings, and all
Its calculations were too habitually
based upon what could be done wltb
a given number of men and a certain
amount of material to make him forget
the vast disparity between the contestants or hope for ultimate triumph.���

His Conclusions on the Evidence of
Ditto and True.
The late Hon. Noah Davis, well
known throughout the country as the
judge who tried and sentenced Boss
Tweed, was justly celebrated ln many
ways. He was of that type of jurist
for which western New York was
famed during the half century following 1850. Orleans county Is proud of
him as one of her noblest and most distinguished sons. He was slightly
above medium height, full habited,
large head, fine, clean cut fnce���indeed,
a striking figure ln any community. He
was a well read 'awyer, an honest,
fair minded Judge, with a keen seuse
of humor nnd withal something of a
writer and poet. The following lines
from his pen, written on the spur of
the moment and in the midst of a trial.
Illustrate the alertness and quality ot
his mind. They are perhaps the best
play upon words of which we have any
record in the English language.
It was at the Niagara circuit In the
early seventies. Judge Davis presided.
An action In ejectment was called.
The dispute was over a party wall or
a division line. It was purely a question for the civil engineer. The division line established and the case was
won. The defendant's attorney, realizing this, called as expert witnesses the
Hon. John A. Ditto, city engineer ot
Buffalo, nnd the Hon. A. tt. True, tbe
engineer who constructed the canta-
lever bridge over Niagara river at the
falls. They were two of the most eminent civil engineers In the state. They
made a survey of the premises and established the division line as contended
for by the defendant and when called
to the witness stand so testified, giving
monuments, courses and distances with
such minute exactness that they could
not be successfully controverted. The
moment True, who followed Ditto ns a
witness, left the stand, Judge Davis
wrete these lines nnd passed them to
the clerk to hand to plaintiff's counsel:
Since True swears ditto to Ditto,
And Ditto swears ditto to True,
If True be true and Ditto be ditto,   .
I think they're too many for you.

Naval Efficiency.
In the South African war it was
more than whispered that the delay
in terminating the operations was
due to the jealousies of rival officers.
Millions of money was wasted simply
bacause men in command played for
their separate hands. True, there was
then no crisis of the nation's fate.
Very different would be the case if
our supremacy were challenged at
sea; but in the present temper of thp
navy there is no guarantee that similar pauses might not tend to far more
grievous trouble. Now this iB not

There is only one way to cure deafness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when it is entirely closed. Deafness
is the result, and unless the inflam-
mat:on can be taken out and this tube
restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by
Catarrh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by
Catarrh) that cannot be cured by

What a Caustic Critic of Our Navy
Has to Say About It.
The most Important protection or a
battleship, outside of tbe hull Itself, Is
that given to Its magazines. Never
since the use of powder upon fighting
ships bas there been sucb danger to
tbe magazines as exists lu every battleship and armored cruiser In the
American fleet. It Is n flrst principle,
recognized even In the days of wooden
frigates, that powder must not be
passed directly up to the gun deck
through a vertical shaft. The open
turret of tbe Uulted States battleship
Is the only violation of this principle lu
the practice of the world.
The open turret ls a conical shaft
leading straight down into the hull of
the ship. At the top of .bis shaft the
powder Is loaded luto tbe heavy guu
At Its bottom Is the handling room,
where the powder Is delivered from
the magazine. Around this handling
room aud opening directly Into it are
the magazines.
The guns In the turret are Fred with
charges of smokeless powder. This
powder Is a hard, round substance, of
a composition which looks uot uulllte
celluloid. Its grains���iu the cbnrges
for the heaviest guu���are cylluders
nbout the size of a spool of thread.
These grains of powder when uncon-
flned do not explode if tbey nre set on
fire, but nre consumed like fizzing firecrackers. Now, u.ider present conditions nt least, a certain number of accidents In loading and tiring guns can
be counted on. When these occur the
burning powder grains will fall straight
down Into tbe bundling room. The
charges in Vic bnndllug room will be
set on fire and the whole turret will
be filled at once with a poisonous,
flaming gns that destroys life Immediately and even melts the softer metals. Three times already by a miracle
Amerlcau ships have beeu saved from
the explosion of their magazines be-
jause -at th__, kind of accident���

Keeping Cake Pans From Sticking.
No matter how many devices there
are In tho way of patent cake pnns,
nothing gives more general satisfaction for layer cake than to line the
pans with buttered paper.
it Is a* good Idea to buy 10 cents'
worth of the common yellow wrapping
paper that ls used ln grocery stores,
and some day wben you have a little
extra leisure cut these sheets to fit the
different pans used. Thus some may
be circular, others square or oblong
and a few with a hole In the center for
the Turk's head pans used for fruit or
pound cukes.
Tut these papers carefully away tn
the pantry closet, and they will prove
worth their weight In eggs at present
day prices wben you come to bake
your cakes on a crowded Saturday
Do not grease the pan, only the top
of the paper.
When the cake ls done, then It should
be turned upside down on a cloth and
the paper pulled off as quickly as uue*
Canaries Steamship Pets.
Few and far between are the steamships enteriug the port of Boston that
cannot boast of a canary. No matter
how battered uud rusty the craft may
be, oue is pretty sure to find the canary
somewhere ln tbe rooms of the officers
or crew. Its cage, as a rule, Is a wonderful creation of brass wire and lace,
and the canary himself usually Is a
singer whoso trill and whistle are of
the best. The little songsters appear
to enjoy life on the ocean. Seldom are
they Inconvenienced by the motion of
tbe vessel, and the more the cage
swlugs from Its hook the more they
warble. Sailors will tell you a canary
Is a mascot. Be that us It may, ths
canaries are great pets. Frequently
one may Bee a sailor on the water
