Star v. White Case Ends Hut
Decision is Not Yet
Word lias been received from Victoria
that tlie celebrated Star-While case was
brought lo a close last Wednesday,
bat when tho lengthy replied of the
plaintiff company's counsel wore concluded the ju Igea announce 1 that they
would reserve judgment. Tlie trial has
occupied three weeks, and wns an
appeal irom the decision of Chief Justice Hunter which gave tlie Byron N.
White Co. the light to follow tho apex
and mine ore from the Star Co.'s
ground. When lhe matter came before
ihe full court an adjournment of several
months was made to permit of certain
teBt work being done by the plaintiff
company to ascertain whether a black
fissure, claimed by tbe c'.dcf justice to
be a " myth," existed, and cut oil'
abruptly the Star lead and thus putting
an end to tlie defendant company's
ri^lit to proceed with mining and ore
extracting on the ground owned by (lie
Other company. This work hat been
concluded, anil the present couit will
decide if tlie black dyke is mythical or
a substantial one. The eaeo is unique
from a geological standpoint, betides
showing iho diversity of opinion of imported expert**, We WOlllJ bank more
on tiijjivo A of an Independent witness
conversant with local conditions than a
carload of retained experts who will
logically conclude black ie white to help
out their retainers.

EXCELLENT chances; steady work;

Silver City Bureau, Box 898, Cobalt-,
J.M., Rosebery:
Barytea, or heavy spar, is of no
commercial value in this country. I
have not heard of its occurrence in any
quantity in this district. It i*, however,
found in objectionable larjre quantities
in some of tbe coast copper deposils,
rendering the ore difficult to flux at the
A.II., Sandon.
The presence of antimony In a lead
silver ore is objectionable to the emcl-
ter, because the silver losses are greatly
increased during roasting, and because
it passes into lhe lead bullion. With
electric methods of refining, as used nt
Trail, it Is possihle to recover the antimony, If present in sufficient quantity,
to pay costs. Your specimen is undoubtedly permeated, with "grey copper,"
Just in the grey of dawn, when the
mist uprose from the silent meadows
and dells, our editor rolled from his
bed at the excellent Hotel Grand lo
gaze upon liic wondrous sunrise above
the Slocan waterway last Monday, and
to quietly "size up" conditions from
a commercial view point. Wo were
primarily amazed at the prevailing temperature, for although Old Sol had
scarcely yet shed his rays beyond tbe
hoary peaks of the emerald bills, iho
air was delicionsly cool. The reader
who, residing in the cast, at such an
hour would be hugging a cheering
stove or choring in furs will best appro*
ciate our climate when we report that
on this, the 32nd day of April at 4.80
a.m., tbo thermometer registered 50
degrees. It is not the writer's motive
to dwell upon the grandeur ot the surrounding vision ; let it suffice when we
write that bounteous Nature thrice
blessed fair Nakusp���a veritable Garden
of Eden for tbo bone-chilled Manitoban
to enter.
And now Nakusp has been discovered I Interest in the unexcelled fruit
lands of Ibis f< rtile valley has been
awakened to such an extent that settlers have arrived with their effects
and aio now clearing tbe sites for their
orchard* and future homes. More are
OB tbo way, and before a late Autumn
falls upon the pla'eau there will be a
hundred new families in the vicinity.
A careful estimate shows ns th it there
are 15,000 acres of excellent arable land,
and many thousand acres of bench
lands which we prefer not to designate
as desirable fruit land by reason of lack
of irrigation.
Apart from the desirable attributes
which go towards successful farming,
Nakusp offers attractions to home-
seekers which aro incomparable for a
township of its numerical strength.
Tho town itself has sprung up upon a
plateau which overlooks the lake, and
its handsome villns and magnificent
hotels stand as evidence of tho outer-
prising spirit predominating tho community. The.e are three churches,
Catholic, Arglican and Presbyterian,
which aro served at regular interval.'-'.
Fishing and boating may be Indu'ged In
the year round, while lovers of tbe chare
may gratify their bunting desiiea in
full. A public school with an aver a go
attendance of 45 is well served by an
accomplished governess, and the water
for domestic purposes is obtained fiom
a natural spring at the rear of the town,
and is in it*:olf a great acquisition.
It. is a pleasing feature for tho now
settlers that the best binds now ou (he
m.ukot are within a few minutes' walk
of the school. Here are lo be found
sueh luxuries as to'egrapb, telephone,
a daily mail seivlce, diily boats and
train connecting with the Crow's Nest
and main lines. Transportation problems and markets for produce will not
cause the now arrival any anxiety, a>.
the former is as perfect as is to be found
anywhere, and the markets are legion.
The ground, too, is easily cleared, the
standing timber on s une of the land
being of tha scrubby though sound
order, will prove idenl COl'dwood for
the settler. A man can clear an a-re
of this land from a week to ten days,
and the money saved for (Irewood aloi.e
will more than adequately recompense
him for his exertions. There ii also a
pretty little opera house.
Now capital is turning ih attention
to this end of the Slocan, we suggest to
tho townspeople Ihat they be on the
alert and ready to stamp out. any wild-
catting. At this critical stage the town
will either jump ahead by leaps end
bounds or its oppoitunity will be lo t
for some lime. It therefore behoves the
townspeople to see thnt now ����� ttlers all
get " a fair shake." There are now two
land companies operating in Winnipeg
and Minneapolis whoso object is to get
rich quick. Tho Winnipeg firm is advertising extensively and thus creating
a demand for bind locally, and so far
appear lo bo conducting- a lpgitlmato
business. One of then- clients, a Mr.
Rice told us ho would not accept tf-'S an
acre more lhan the purchase pi ice lie
paid a month ago. It would be a thousand pities if a comptiny disposes of
waste mountainous laiiiTs in the east as
desirable fruit lauds for -etllers. The
industry would stistain-a black eye as
the outcome whl h would retard tho
progress of tho district for many years.
Nor should residents who have blocks
of land to dispose of themselves kneck
the strangers who are bringing settling-
in. Their methods may not he the
same as you might employ, but their
business ia a legitimate one, and if legitimate tactics arc employed everything
will be well.     Remember that  every
settler the company pleases adds greater
intrinsic value to your own laud which
you necessarily believe is the choicest of
the bunch.
To (lie intending settler a word. The
Slocan valley offers such attractions
that a visit will well repay yon, From
lhe waterway at Nakusp along the
valley traversed by the C.l'.R. to New
Denver, will be found large tracts of
most desirable land now.lying idle.
Around-New Denver, Silverton and
Slocan City are choice fruit lands awaiting your inspection. The climate is
superb, there being no extremes In
summer or winter. -In conclusion wo
will add that Nakusp is now enjoying
an era of long-delayed prosperity, and
that the mailing or breaking of lhe revived Industry is In lhe bands of the
inhabitants of Nakusp and district.

Have you proceeded along the same
theoretical lines us you started out ou a
year ago ? asked ihe scribe.
Unquestionably. I have pursued
same course; having, however, perfoc-
lid in tho meanwhile my theories and
made them through study. It is an absolute surety, replied the retired medico.
Do you mean to say Unit your theories
are absolutely applicable lo all proper-
lies in the silver lead belt?
I do. There are some variations in
conformation of the Slocan om deposits,
resulting from slight difference in surrounding conditions, but these my
theory will explain, and I unhesitatingly stale that tbere is no chance of mistake. In other words it is utterly Impossible for this theory to be otherwise
than an absolute certainty. Identity of
causation is always productive of identical result. Like produces like. There
is no intervening circumstance which
by any possibility can render cause ineffective in this ra-.e.
What constitutes your theory ?
That is ��� my secret for lhe present.
I do not feel justified at this stage to

Beverly of g sg
Graustark ��:~k-
(Oontinued From Last Week.)
mHAT same afternoon Baldos,
blissfully ignorant of the stir
he had created In certain clr-
' cles, rode out for the first time
us a member of the castle guard. He
and Haddan were detailed by Colonel
Quinnox to act as private escort to
Miss Calhoun until otherwise ordered.
If Haddan thought himself wiser than
Baldos In knowing that their charge
was not the princess he was very much
mistaken. If he enjoyed the trick that
wus being played on his fellow gunrds-
mnn his enjoyment was as nothing
wheu compared to the pleasure Baldos
was deriving from the situation.
Tho royal victoria was driven to tho
fortress, conveying the supposed princess and the Countess Dagmar to the
home of Count Marlanx. The two
guards rode bravely behind the equipage, resplendent In brilliant new uniforms. Bnldos was mildly surprised
and puzzled by the homage paid the
young American girl. It struck him as
preposterous thnt the entire population
of Edelweiss could be ln the game to
deceive him.
"Who Is the princess' companion?"
he Inquired of Haddan as they left the
castle grounds.
"The Countess Dagmar, cousin to her
highness. She is the wife of Mr. Anguish."
"I have seen her before," said Baldos,
a strange smile on his face.
The Countess Dagmar found it difficult nt first to meet the eye of the new
guard, but he was so punctiliously
oblivious that her courage was restored.
She even went so far as to whisper in
Beverly's ear that he did not remember
her face and probably would not recognize Yetive as one of the eavesdroppers. The princess had flatly refused
to accompany them on the visit to the
fortress because of Bnldos. Struck by
a sudden Impulse, Beverly called Baldos to the side of the vehicle.
"Baldos, you behaved very nicely jam-
terday ln exposing  the duplicity ef
those young women." she paid.
"1 "am'happy to have pleased your
highness," he said steadily.
"It may Interest you to know that
they ceased to be ladies in waiting after that exposure."
"Yes, your highness, It certainly is Interesting," he snld as he fell back Into
position beside Haddan. During the
remainder of the ride he caught himself time after time gazing reflectively
at the back of her proud little head,
possessed of an nlmost uncontrollable
desire to touch the soft brown hair.
"You can't fool that excellent young
man much longer, my dear," said the
countess, recalling the look In his dark
eyes. The same thought had been afflicting Beverly with its probabilities
for twenty-four hours aud more.
Count Marlanx welcomed his visitors
with a graciousness that awoke wonder in the minds of his staff. His
marked preference for the American
girl did not escape attention. Some of
the bolder youug officers indulged ln
surreptitious grimaces, and all looked
with more or less compassion upou the
happy faced beauty from over the sea.
Marlanx surveyed Baldos steadily and
coldly, deep disapproval ln his sinister
eyes. He had uot forgotten the encounter of the day before.
"I see the favorite is on guard," he
said blandly. "Has he told you of the
lesson In manners he enjoyed last
night)" He was leading his guests toward the quarters, Baldos aud Haddan
following. The new guard could not
help hearing the sarcastic remark.
"You didn't have him beaten?" cried
Beverly, stopping short.
"No, but I imagine it would have
been preferable. I talked with him for
half an hour," sold the general, laughing significantly.
Wheu the party stopped at The drinking fountain ln the center of the fort
Baldos halted near by. His face was
as impassive ns marble, his eyes set
straight before him, his figure erect
and soldierly. An occasional sarcastic remark by the Iron Count, meant
for his ears, made no impression upon
the deadly composure of the new guard
who had hud his lesson. Miss Calhoun was conscious of a vague feeling
that she had served Baldos an ill turn
when she put hlm Into this position.
The count provided a light luncheon
In his quarters after the ladies bad
gone over the fortress. Beverly Calhoun, with all of a woman's Indifference to things material, could not but
Bee how poorly equipped the fort was
as compared to the ones she had seen
lu. the United States. She and the
countess visited the armory, the arsenal and the repair shops before
luncheon, reserving the pleasures of
the clubhouse, the officers' quarters
and the parade ground until afterward.
Count Marlanx's home was ln the
southeast corner of the Inclosure, near
the gates. Several of the officers lunched with him nnd the young ladles.
Marlanx was assiduous in his attention to Beverly Calhoun, so much so,
ln fact, that the countess teased her
afterward about her conquest of the
old and well worn heart. Beverly
thought him extremely silly and sentimental, much preferring him In the
character of the harsh, Implacable martinet.
At regular intervals she saw the
straight, martial form of Baldos pass
the window near which she gat. He
was patrolling the narrow piazza
which fronted tho house. Toward the
close of the rather trying luncheon she
was almost unable to control the Impulse to rush out and compel him to
relax that Imposing, machine-like
stride. She hungered for a few minutes of the old time freedom with him.
The Iron Count was show lug her
some rare antique bronzes he had collected in the south. The luncheon was
over, and the countess had strolled off
toward lhe  bastJuus  with  the .young
officers, leaving'Beverly alone with the
host Servants came ln to clear the
tables, but the count harshly ordered
tbem to wait until the guests had departed.
"It is tbe dearest thing I have seen,"
said Beverly, holding a rare old candlestick at arm's length and looking at it
In as many ways as the wrist could
turn. Her loose sleeves ended just below the elbows. The count's eyes followed the graceful curves of her white
forearm with an eagerness that was
"I prize it more dearly than any
other piece ln my collection," he said.
"It came from Home. It has a history
which I shall try to tell you some day
and which makes it almost Invaluable.
A German nobleman offered me a
small fortune If I would part with it."
"And you wouldn't sell It?"
"I was saving it for an occasion,
your highness," he said, his steely eyes
glittering. "The glad hour has come
when I can part with it for a recompense far greater than the baron's
"Oh, Isn't it lucky you kept it?" she
cried. Then she turned her eyes away
quickly, for his gaze seemed greedily
endeavoring to pierce through the lace
insertion covering her neck and shoulders. Outside the window the steady
tramp of the tall guard went on monotonously.
"The recompense of a sweet smile, a
tender blush and the unguarded
thanks of a pretty woman. The candlestick Is yours, Miss Calhoun���if you
will repay me for my sacrifice by accepting it without reservation."
Slowly Beverly Calhoun set the candlestick down upon the table, her eyes
meeting his with steady disdain.
"What a rare old jester you are,
Count Marlanx," sbe said without a
smile. "If I thought you were in earnest I should scream with laughter.
May I suggest tbat we join the countess? We must hurry along, you know.
She and I have promised to ploy tenuis
with the princess nt 3 o'clock." The
count's glare of disappointment lasted
but a moment. The diplomacy of egotism came to his relief, and he held
oack the gift for another day, but not
for another woman.
"It grieves me to have you hurry
awuy. My afternoon Is to be a dull
one unless you permit me to watch the
tennis game," he said.
"I thought you were iuterested only
ln the gume of war," she said pointedly.
"I stand In greater awe of a tennis
ball thau I do of a cannon ball, if it Is
sent by such au arm as yours," und
he not only laid bis eyes, hut his hand,
upon her bare arm. She started as If
sometblug had stung her, and. a cold
shiver raced over her warm flesh. His
eyes for the moment held her spellbound. He was drawing the hand to
his lips wheu a shadow darkened the
French window, uud a saber ruttled
Count Marlanx looked up instantly,
a scowl on his face. Baldos stood at
the window iu un attitude of alert attention. Beverly drew her arm away
spasmodically and took a step toward
the window. The guard saw by her
eyes that she was frightened; but, if
his heart beat violently, his face was
the picture of military stoniness.
"What are you doing there**" snarled
the count.
"Did your highness call?" asked Baldos coolly.
"She did not call, fellow!" said the
count, with deadly menace in his voice.
"Beport to me ln half an hour. You
still have something to learn, I see."
Beverly was alarmed by the threat ln
his tones. She saw what was ln store
for Baldos, for she knew quite as well
as Marlanx that the guard had deliberately intervened ln her behalf.
"He cannot come in half an hourl"
she cried quickly. "I have something
for him to do, Count Marlanx. Besides,
I think I did call." Both men stared
at her.
"My ears are excellent," said Marlanx stiffly.
"I fancy Baldos' must be even better,
for he heard me," said Beverly, herself
once more. The shadow of a smile
crossed the face of the guard.
"He is impertinent, insolent, your
highness. You will report to me tomorrow, sir, at 0 o'clock in Colonel Quin-
nox's quarters. Now, go!" commanded
the count.
"Walt a minute, Baldos. We are going out too. Will you open that window for me?" Baldos gladly took it as
a command and threw open the long
French window. She gave him a grateful glance as she stepped through, aud
he could scarcely conceal the gleam of
joy that shot into his own eyes. The
dark scowl on the count's face made
absolutely no impression upon him. He
closed the window and followed ten
paces behind the couple.
"Your guard is a priceless treasure,"
said the count grimly.
"That's what you said about the candlestick," said she sweetly.
She was disturbed by his threat to
reprimand Baldos. For some time her
mind bad been struggling with what
the count had said about "the lesson."
It grew upon her that her friend had
been bullied and humiliuted, perhaps
ln the presence of spectators. Resentment fired her curiosity into action.
While the general was explaining one
of the new gun carriages to the countess Beverly walked deliberately over to
where Baldos was standing. Haddan's
knowledge of English was exceedingly
limited, nnd be could understand but
little of the rapid conversation. Standing squarely in front of Baldos, she
questioned hlm ln low tones.
"What did he menu when he said he
had given you a lesson?" ahe demanded.   His eyes gleamed merrily.
"He meant to alarm your highness."
"Didn't hje give you a talking tc-?"

Was he mean and nasty to you? Tell

"Well, he said things that a soldier
must endure. A civilian or an equal
might have run him through for it, your
highness." A flush rose to his cheeks,
and his lips quivered ever so slightly.
But Beverly saw and understood. Her
heart was in her eyes.
"That settles it," she said rigidly.
"You are not to report to him at 9
"But he will have me shot, your
highness," said he gladly.
"He will do nothing of the kind. You
are my guard." And her eyes were
gleaming dangerously. Then she rejoined the group, the members of

entrancing dimples, "will you report
to me at 0 tomorrow morning?"

The Crab Eating Raccoon and Peculiar Crustacean Taste.
What made the crab eating raccoon
first take to his queer diet? The
question Is suggested by a specimen of
this strange animal which has arrived
at the menagerie and will he happy to
oblige any generous visitor with i|n
illustration of the quickest way to kill,
unshell and swallow a crustacean without artificial assistance of nny kind.
Doubtless the peculiarity originated in
the shore frequenting habits of the
species, and, being a delicate feeder,
the succulence of the crab, once cracked, was an obvious inducement to renew his acquaintance on every possible occasion. Originally probably a
fruit eater, the raccoon Is inquisitive
and dainty, both strong Incentives to
experiments ln diet. When nn Individual sees a small object he does not
understand, his actions fall under
three headings. He first puts the
article to close scrutiny, Loth with his
eyes and that supercilious upturned
nose of his; then he takes it away and
washes it���a very characteristic action
of this water loving animal���and finally puts It to the grand test of eatable-
ness or otherwise. If It appears unpalatable, he gives it to his wife. In
this way it Is easy to imagine how the
creek loving coon, wearying of too
much fruit, made his first .crab supper
and, though he has never been able te
add a squeeze of lemon or brown
bread and butter to the repast, has become a confirmed love-, of crustacen
ever since. All creatures make experiments of the sort and occasionally carry them on until they Vecome a fixed
habit, and their sr'.ole structure Is
modified in accordance. Nature, for
Instance, never Intended the osprey to
live on fish. It was the temptation of
nn old world trout ln difficulties in
tho ohallows that first led the great
hnwk astray. Some small Brazilian
monkeys, again, live almost exclusively oa birds' eggs, an Australian parrot
has given up a proper vegetarian diet
for an exclusive regimen of mutton,
and many other instances of the same
unorthodox appetites might be cited.

cannot possibly cure disease. In the

Specialization  More   Conspicuous    In
Eastern Agriculture.
There is nothing more characteristic
of New England agriculture than the
extent to which the division of labor
is carried. This process, known everywhere as the mark of advanced civilization and refined industry, ia every
year more conspicuous in eastern agriculture Specialization is here seen in
'.Is highest forms. One man makes
milk and another breeds the cows for
him. One farmer grows pigs for sausage, but he depends on other farmers to produce the pigs. One man
whose money crop is fresh eggs never
breeds a hen. These are actual examples.
Fruit and Truck Growing.
In the line of<fruit and truck growing a similar division of labor ia
found, and, what is more important,
this division is increasing year by
year. Many strawberry growers there
are who do not think of raising their
own plants, but who prefer to get
them of other growers who specialize
in that line. Perhaps tbe most marked advance in this line is shown in
the increasing demand for vegetable
plants. What would our grandiatherB
think of buying cabbage, cauliflower
and tomato plants every spring? And
yet this is exactly what is being done
every spring on every hand here in
New England. Now celery and lettuce
plants are extensively bought and
sold. White peppers, eggplants, musk-
melons and even onions are sometimes
included in the sales.
Encourage Specialization.
Such a state of affairs is altogether
proper and is everywhere to be encouraged. The small city and suburban growers get the best results from
thiB sort of service, but small farmers also find they can buy what tomato and cabbage plants they need
much cheaper than they can go to
the bother of making and tending hotbeds. The fact is the city man or the
suburbanite will not grow tomatoes
or eggplants at all if he has to go to
the trouble of rearing the plants first.
Even professional track farmere,
who grow cabbage or celery by the
thousands, sometimes find it cheaper
to buy plants than to grow them, and
in case such a grower has a failure
with his own young plants (a thing
by no means unknown) it is a matter
of the highest importance for hiu>. to
be able to fall back on some plant
dealer for the 10,000 cabbage or 30,-
000 tomato or 20,000 celery plants for
which his land ia all prepared.���Professor F. A. Waugh in New England
Gold In the Chest Seemed to be Unmovable
But Cure was Soon Effeoted by
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Unseed and Turpentine
It is waste of time to use ordinary
cough mixtures for serious colds on
the chest, and time is of infinite value  when   the  lungs  are  in  danger.
The risk is too great, especially
when you wait to think that Dr.
Chase's Syrup of Linseed and .Turpentine is for sale in nearly every
store that keeps medicines at all.
This letter gives you some Idea of
the effectiveness of this great medicine.
Mrs. A. Barnum, Ingersoll, Ont.,
writes:���"My husband had a very
severe cold on his chest and got so
bud he could not speak above a
whisper. The cough medicines he tried
seemed to have no effect and rending
about Dr. ('base's Syrup of Linseed
and Turpentine I sent for a bottle.
In two days ho was cured und is very
grateful for such a medicine. lie snys
we will never be without this medicine  In   the  house."
The very name of Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed    and    Turpentine    is
sufficient to explain the simple and
yet powerful and well-known Ingredients of which this great medicine  is  composed.
While linseed sheathes the mouth,
tongue and throat, with a protective
coating to prevent injury from hard
coughing, turpentine disinfects and
stimulates the ulcerated parts of the
bronchial tubes and lungs and Is almost  specific   for  bronchitis.
Other ingredients which along with
these go to make up Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine, soothe
the nerves, loosen the cough, aid expectoration, and by thorough action
on the whole system completely cure
coughs and colds, bronchitis, asthma,
whooping   cough   and   sore   throat.

Sir William Crookes Discovers a Cheap
Fertilizer From the Air,
Sir William Crookes, the eminent
Britisli chemist, has set agriculturists
everywhere quite on edge by an alleged discovery of a cheap fertilizer
from the air. He, however, does not
claim the discovery as his own, but
attributes it to two Continental investigators, Kowalski and Moszicki;
yet on inquiry he appears to have
been the pioneer in this particular
field of research, and it is hia opinion
of its importance which givea weight
to the undertaking; indeed, if anyone
else ever aolvea the problem of manufacturing nitratea which can be sold
at a price below that demanded for
the mineral deposita the world will
still owe a heavy debt to Sir William
aa pioneer.
Fifteen years ago Sir William devoted much time studying how the
nitrogen of the atmosphere united
with other gases to produce nitric
acid. He found it to be a difficult
problem to aolve. It appeara that
there is a wonderful difference in the
eagerness with which substances enter into combinations with each other.
For instance, between acids and alkalis the affinity is bo strong that the
utmost pains must be taken to prevent them getting together prematurely On the other hand, others are peculiarly reluctant to amalgamate. Of
the latter sort is nitrogen, which requires a strike of artificial lightning
to induce it to combine with the other
ineredients of nitric acid.
In all the processes hitherto devised
to make them do so the elpctric aroj
has been used, but the results have
been far from commensurate with the
investment recruired, and so they have
been frequently abandoned. Now according to the experiments of the
three chemists mentioned all that is
required in order to be able to compete with the nitrates of Chili is to
get an abundant aupply of electricity
at a low co8t. With that most profitable atmospheric fertilizers can be
created and conducted, and of which
agriculturists will derive the benefit.
Aa is well known, many attempts
have been made at various placet)���
Niagara, Notrodden, Ac���to produce
this cheap electricity, and have succeeded, not only there, but in various parts of Sweden and Switzerland.
It is thought that one or other of these
sources of cheap power may be utilized. At all eventa several British capitalists have been enlisted in the enterprise, which is now promised a
fair, full and early trial.
Starting Alfalfa.
Where one cannot get a start with
alfalfa from a late summer planting,
more exactly the middle of August,
owing to a pest of grasshoppers, the
seed may be sowed about the middle
of April, with or without a nurse crop,
at the 'ol* of abotit 18 pounds to the
acre. Owiiig to the rapid growth of
weeds the field should be mowed frequently after the alfalfa gets a good
start, as this not only kills the weeds,
but tends to thicken up the legume.
Before planting it the ground should
be thoroughly fertilized and the soil
put in the best of tilling. Out at the
right time and properly cured, alfalfa
makes the best and most nutritious of
hay, while it provides an ideal pasture ft* hogs.

If our readers could spend one morning looking through the letters received from all over Canada by the zarn-
Buk Co., It would bring home to tlu in
with irresistible force the healing virtues of this groat household balm. Old
women, voting women, wives, mothers
and even young girls have something
to say about how Zam-Buk did this or
that good office in their home. Many
of these writers give permission to
make extracts from their grateful testimony. From these the following
were taken at random:
������I was troubled for some weeks
with salt rheum in hands and .arms
and was using a salve which did nie
little good. On receiving a supply of
Zam-Buk I applied it, and It really
seemed to act like magic! The itching
and burning ceased, and in a fe.v days
the skin was cleared und healthy." So
writes Miss E. A. Butehard, of Nortli
"Three boxes of Zam-Buk cured me
of Eczema, from which I had suffered
a long time." So says Mrs. Gladden,
of Mansonville,  Que.
"Zam-Buk cured a case of blood
poison In my family, and I wish to
thank you for the great blessing it
has proved," Is the effect of a letter
from   Mrs.   Webb,  of  Dovercourt.
And so one could go gn quoting extract after extract, showing hew Zam-
Buk cures chronic sores, ulcers,
abscesses, bad leg, itch, and blood
poison; takes the soreness out of cuts
and burns, and grows new, healthy
skin over injured or diseased places.

Its Development From the Markers
Used by the Ancients.
It Is difficult to determine the exact
period In which "black lead" was first
utilized as an Instrument for writing
or drawing, as It has been confused
with other mineral bodies to which tt
bears no relation. Tbe ancients used
lead, '>ut the metal was formed luto
fiat nxites nnd the edges of these plates
used to make the mark. If an ornamental design was desired, the transcriber drew parallel lines and traced
therein illuminated designs, usually
with n hard point, but also with soft
lead. That lead was known to the ancients is also proved by the fact that
it Is meutloned in the book of Job.
During the year 1015 there was a description of the black lead pencil written by Conrad Gesner. He says that
pieces of plumbago were fastened Iu a
woodeu handle und a mixture of fossil
substance, sometimes covered wltb
wood, was used for writing and drawing. About bulf a century later a very
good account of this mineral was given, und It was then used in Italy for
drawing nud mixed with clay for manufacturing crucibles.
I We nre informed ln Beckman's "History of Inventions" that the pencils
' first used ln Italy for drawing were
composed of a mixture of lead and tin,
��� nothing more than pewter. This pencil was called a stile. Michael Angelo
mentions this stile, and, in fact, tt
seems that such pencils were long used
in common over the whole continent
of Europe. At this period the name
plumbago or graphite was not In use,
but instead the name inolybdena or
molybdolds, which Is now applied to
an entirely different mineral.
Graphite or black lead Is formed ln
the primary rocks. Iu the United
States it occurs in feldspar and quartz.
In Great Britain in greenstone rock
und gneiss and In Norway In quartz.
The mine at Borrowdale, England, bus
supplied some of the finest black lead
lu tbe world, but the quantity varies
owing to the irregularity with which
the mineral occurs.
Tho Jews were for awhile the only
manufacturers of pencils. It required
great skill to perfect the manufacture,
according to the degree of hardness or
softness required. Of recent years the
manufacture of pencils has Increased
to such au extent that the price of
these articles bus decreased proportionately. Graphite and pure clay are
combined and used in the manufacture
of artificial black lead pencils, and, on
the other baud, the greatest perfection
is attained in the making of the higher
class pencils. graphite Is exposed to
heat to acquire firmness and brilliancy
of color. Sulphur Is also used to secure
u more perfect color.
Real Use of the Bee's Sting.
"The bee's stiug Is a trowel, not a
rupler," said a nature student. "It is
uu exquisitely delicate little trowel
with which the bee finishes off the
honey cell. Injects a little preservative
Inside and seals it up. With its trowellike sting the bee puts the final touches
on the dainty and wonderful work.
With tbe sting it pats und shapes the
honey cell, us a mason pats and shapes
a row oi brick. Before sealing up the
cell it drops a wee bit of poison into
the honey. This Is formic acid. Without It honey would spoil. Most of us
thluk the bee's sting, with Its poison,
is a weapon only. It Is a weapon secondarily, but primarily 1t is a magic
trowel, a trowel from whose end, as
the honey cells are built up, a wonderful preserving fluid drips.
The Weathering of Coal.
It Is probably not generally known
that coal exposed to the atmosphere
undergoes chemical changes greatly
affecting Its quality. Moisture Is the
most powerful agent ln producing such
change. It Is a matter of common
knowledge among men engaged ln the
making of Illuminating gus that coal
which has been stored for a long time
experiences a loss of hydrocarbons,
and the effects of the change are
shown In a diminution of the volume
of the coal and In a loss of illuminat-
lug power Iu the gas produced from It
Such chemical changes occurring In
greut masses of coal may even produce
sufficient accumulation of beat to cause
spontaneous combustion.

The Shout That Made Remington's Indian Open His Mouth.
Frederic Remington's studio was
quiet. A stillness thut betokens work
pervaded the atmosphere, and tbe artist, working sway ut his canvas, "The
Spirit of War," silently laid ou his
colors of the scorching sun, and an lu-
dlan chief, raised in his stirrups, shouting to bis braves, Inspiring tbem with
courage for the fight.
Remington had not heard a knock
'at the studio door or tbe entrance of
an unannounced guest Nor did be
realize that two sharp eyes were scanning his work with that critical examination characteristic of the man who
"knows art."
Suddenly there burst from the visitor
such a shout as any Indian chief
would have been proud of.
Another and another shout echoed
through the studio. Remington, starting back, dropped his brushes nnd palette nnd turned in tlie direction of the
thundering voice.
"Ah, ball! My boy, open Ills mouth
Mako hlm shout. Make him look it.
Open his mouth. So���so." And the
stranger gave vent to two more shouts
fit for the plains.
It was Gerome, and this wns his
method of expression iu this special
case. Remington, ln accordance with
his advice, "opened his mouth," uud
us a result, instead of the slightly
parted lips, there is a face so full of
enthusiasm, so expressive of a grent
heartfelt throb giving vent to a cheer,
