Spokane Interstate Fair.
The matter of securing cheaper transportation rates into Spokane during Interstate Fair week seems to be assured.
This year the big fair will be held in
Spokane from October 5 to 10 inclusive,
and from the present indications the
people of the north-west will be given
an opportunity of visiting Spokane and
attending Ihe fair on a rate of one fare
for tbe round trip, a rate wliich has
never before been offered in the Inland
The Spokane International, the new
line into Spokane, has set tlie ball rolling, by announcing to the Chamber of
Commerce of Spokane, that they will
give a rate of ono fare for the round trip
during the week of tlie Interstate Fair,
and will take the matter up with the
Can ad in Pacific Railway and try and
secure Ibis same rate from all points in
Britidh Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Manager Cosgrove of the Interstate
Fair Association is being assisted In
his rate campaign by tho Chamber of
Commerce and the 150,000 Club, and it
is probable that the pace sot by the
International will be followed by the
other roads.
If the advent of a newspaper is to bo
taken as a criterion of a town's progress,
then several towns in B.C. are moving
in the right direction. Hosmer has
now a weekly newspaper of its own���
the "Weekly Time**"���which made its
bow to the public last week. Bert
Wbimsler is the editor and  publisher.
Another town to spring into fame in
a journalistic sense is Hazleton, B. C,
where the first edition of the "Oiiiineca
Herald" was issued on July lllh, and
reached our ollice tbis week. Besides
containing all the -local news there is a
column of tbe latest foreign news from
all parts. Messrs. DeVoin and Coyle
are the publishers, and if given tlie support of the people they may be relied
upon to do their share in promoting tbe
w lfare of Hazleton and the Omincca
A weekly newspaper is also shortly to
be published in Ladvsniitli, and the
first No. of the "Lndysmith Chronicle"
will make its appearance early in August, and will be run by Messrs. Carley
and Carley.
This by no means exhausts the list,
Miss E. Joule being the editor and publisher of tlie " Gateway International,"
the latest journalistic venture in East
Kootenay. The "International," wliich
dips Into both Canadian and American
politic*, and also has a sporting column,
is printed on a typewriter. We remember when New Denver had a newspaper
which was produced by members of the
gentler sex and was also printed on a
To Whom It May Concern.
We have been asking for some time
to have new sidewalks. The lumber,
part of wliich has been generously given
by Lewis Scaia, arrived last week, and
tbere were many of the more willing
ones got in right away and several ol
the old sidcvjialks were quickly replaced
by new ones; but there are etill many
more to be done. During the last week
a slate of inactivity has been cxisinnt
in certain quarters, and in one or two
instances the old sidewalks have been
piilled up and there they have stopped,
uo effort having been made to put new
ones in their places, leaving tlie streets
in a worse condition than before. Surely it is not too much to expect those for
whoso benefit the sidewalks are, to supply the labor, when tlie lumber is provided for them. We wish to inform
these peoplo that unless they get a
wiggle on during the next few days, the
lumber will be taken away and placed
at the dispoaal of those who are only
too willing lo get to work and bui!d
tlieir own sidewalk.
Tbe Victoria Week says:���"It will be
a matter for gratification to all loyal
Conservatives that Harry Goodeve has
received tlie nomination for Kootenay,
He is described in the official report as
"Druggist, of Rossland," as a matter of
fact, he is a gifted and eloquent man, a
life-long Conservative, a thinker, a logician, and without any exception, the
most elfective platform speaker in the
Interior. Ho may well be compared
wtth Martin Burrill, and not at ull to
his own discredit, for if aB a speaker he
has a little hss polish, he is more direct, more incisive, and more effective.
His past services to the party, fully entitle 11iin to the nomination. There
has only been one other man in the
Kootenay ot late years who could have
polled aB large a vot *, A, M. McNeil!,
K,('.,"ala ��� of Rossland, who has lately
come to reside in Vancouver. Smith-
Curtis, the Liberal candidate, is a verbal artist, but he will meet more than
his match in Harry Goodeve, and the
fact that the latter hales from the same
city as tho former will have a material
effect in securing tlie Rossland vote.
The Week has always maintained that
the right Conservutive candidate would
carry Kootenay. The best possible
choice has been made, and Harry Goodeve will win by a large majority,"
The Ladies' Aid of the Presbyterian
Church will give an Ice Cream and
Home-made Candy Social on Mr. A St.
Clair Brindle's lawn, on Tuesday, Aug

4 Fishing Trip to Evans* Lake
On Sunday morning at 4 o'clock many
alarm clocks awakened their sleepy
owners, and ten minutes later many
pairs of liob-nailed boots were heard on
our new sidewalks. At 4.30 a party of
six were gathered in E1. Angrignon's
boat house, tbo order ot the day being
a fishing trip to Evans' lake. The beau-
tics of the Slocin did not appeal to ni
at this early hour, most of ub being busy
calculating how long it would be before
we arrived at Evans' creek and breakfast. A'l good things, however, conio
to him who waits, and in a little under
two hours the fire was lit and our head
cook (whose name we won't mention,
for fear (be T. I. S. might want him to
give a series of cooking lessons) made
an omelette which all voted was one of
his best efforls. Then the real business
of tlie day started, each man packed
his sack witli fishing tackle, cooking
utensils, and some provisions. We
trusted to the lake to provide the rest.
With Ed. Angrignon in the lead we
struck the trail for Evans' creek and
for two hours overcome almost insurmountable difficulties, climbing over
boulders and leaping abysses which
would have msde an alpine guide shudder. After nothing mote serious than
a few falls and a slight loss of flesh by
some of tlie more bulky members of the
party, we arrived at the lake.
It lies in a valley surrounded by
mountain peaks and is about half a mile
long by quarter of a mile wide, witli
trees growing down to the water's edge.
It is very deep even close inshore, its
pools providing ideal hiding places for
trout. On anival each man unpacked
his fishing tackle, put on his pet fly
(anything from silver pheasant to fat
bacon seemed to suit the fish) and started fishing ri/ht away. The ouly sound
heard for three hours being the music
of the reels and an occasional cheer
when some expert hauled in three fish
at a time. At half-past one the shout
came for dinner, aud some were so enthusiastic that they did not want any,
but when the smell of fiying mountain
trout came to their nostrils, all else was
forgotten. 110 fish was the amount
caught before dinner; after dinner, be-
iii_c again counted, they only totalled 50;
00 sweet, crisp mountain trout, averaging more than Jj'lb. each, having been
cooked and eaten at one sitting by our
party of six.
After vainly endeavouring to discover
who was the principal culprit, we
again commenced fishing, most of us
choosing the mouth of the creek* which
supplies tlie lake. The sport wns fast
and furious, mingled with peals of
laughter when one amateur on landing
his fish, usually yanked them inlo tho
branches of tlie trees behind, and only
recovered them after much exertion and
breaking of hooks. At 5 o'clock the call
went for home and we proceeded to
count our fish, which for the whole day
numbered 348.
Amid many expressions of regret at
having to depart, we started on our return joueney to the Slocan which was
reached in just one hour. Immediately
cooking started again and mountain
trout were voted more delicious every
time we tasted them. After supper we
boarded the launch and had a.delightful
tiip dawn the Slocan, and booh after
dark six tired but delighted sportsman1
arrived in New Denver.
Our first thought was to bring the
fish to the hotel, where we were received
with disbelief; but the evidence of their
own oyes soon convinced Ihe crowd and
tlie fishermen were at last permitted to
quench tlieir thirst with some of Jakey's
famous di ink.
Our party were EJ. Angiignon, A.
Owens, W. Cue, T. Campbell, XV. Corey
and Geo. Smith.
The following has the advantage of
being true and was overheard recently
by us:���
Little boy (who has been vainly endeavouring to turn a somersault):
"Mamma, can God do everything ?"
Mamma: "Yes dear, everything."
Little boy: "You're sure there's nothing he can't do ?"
Mamma: Yes, snre."
Little boy (after a moment's pause):
"Gee! It must bo a snap for hiin lo
turn a somersault."  .	 THI,   SLOCAN   MINING   REVIEW,   NEW   DENVER,   B. C.
Author of   "The  Return of   Sherlock
OopiyrleUt, 1893, by Harper ���**���* Brothers
!T may have been that Mile. Nation,
the faithful confidante of Mme.
de Maintenon, had learned some-
thing of this interview, or it may
be that Pere lu Chaise,wltb the shrewdness for which his order is famous, had
come to the conclusion thnt publicity
was the best means of holding the king
to his present intention, but, whatever
the source, it wus knowu ull over the
court next day that the old favorite
was again lu disgrace und tbat there
was talk of u marriage between the
king and the governess of his chil-
ilrcu. By midday there was none In
the court who had not heard the tidings save only Mine, de Montespan,
who, alarmed at her lover's absence,
hnd reinulned In haughty seclusion In
her room und knew nothing of what
had passed.
Louis iff his Imiiitc sclflshucss had
beeu so accustomed to regard every
event entirely from tbe side of how it
would affect himself that it had never
struck him tbut his long suffering family, who had always yielded to him
the absolute obedience which he claimed as his right, would venture to offer
any opposition to his new resolution.
He was surprised, therefore, when his
brother demanded a private interview
that afternoon and entered his presence without the complaisant smile aud
humble air with which he was wont to
appear before him.
"Why, monsieur, you seem less gay
than usual today," said the king, with
a smile. "Your dress Indeed Is bright,
but your brow ls clouded. I trust that
nil is well with madame and with the
Due de Chartres."
"Yes, sire, they are well, but they
are sad, like myself, aud from the same
"Indeed!   And why?"
"Hove I ever failed In my duty as
your younger brother, sire?"
"Never, Philippe, never!" said the
king, laying his bund affectionately upon the other's shoulder. "You have
set an excellent example to my subjects."
"Then why set a slight upon me?"
"Yes, sire, I say it is a slight. We
nre of royal blood, and our wives are
of royal blood also. You married the
Trlncess of Spain; I married the Princess of Bavaria. It was a condescension, but still I did it. My first wife
was the rrlncess of Englaud. How
can we admit into a house which has
formed such nlliauces as these a
woman who is the widow of a hunchback singer, a mere lampooner, a man
whose name is a byword through Europe?"
The king had stared lu amazement
nt his brother, but his anger now overcame his astonishment.
"Upon my word!" he cried; "upon my
word! I have said just now that you
have been an excellent brother, but I
fear that I spoke a little prematurely.
And so you take upon yourself fo object to the lady whom I select as my
"I do, sire."
"And by what right?"
"By the right of the family honor,
r.ire, which Is as much mine as yours.
I look upon it as a slight upon me and
a slight upon my wife."
"Your wife! I have every respect
for Charlotte Elizabeth of Bavaria, but
how Is she superior to ono whoss
grandfather wns the dear friend and
comrade in arms of Henry the Great?
Enough! I will not condescend to
nrgue such a matter with you! Begone, and do not return to my presence
until you have learned not to interfere
in my affairs."
"For all thnt, my wife shall not know
her!' snarled monsieur.
The king was to have no quiet that
day. If Mme. de Malntenon's friends
had rallied to her yesterday her enemies were active today. Monsieur had
hardly disappeared before there rushed
Into the room a youth who bore upon
his rich attire every sign of having
'Just arrived from a dusty journey. He
,*was  pale   faced aud  auburn  haired.

with features which would hnve boet
strikingly like the king's if it were noi
thut his nose hnd been disfigured In
his youth. Tho king's fnce bud lighted
up ut the sight of bim, but It dnrkened
again as he hurried forward and threw
himself down nt his feet.
"Oh, sire," bo cried, "spare us this
grief- spare us tbis humiliation! I Implore you to pause before you do what
will bring dishonor upon yourself and
upon us!"
The king started buck from him.
"This ls intolerable!" he cried. "It
wns bnd from my brother, but worse
from my son. You ure In u conspiracy
with him, Louis. Monsieur bus told
you to act this part."
The dauphin rose to his feet nnd
looked steadfastly ut his nugry fattier.
���I tsttye iaoi. seen n,jr luiuse,** uc -**_,.
"I was at Meudon when I heard this
news ���this dreadful news ���and 1
sprang upon my horse, sire, and gal- i
loped over to implore you to think
again before you drag our royal house
bo low."
"You talk like a fool!" cried his father. "I propose to marry a virtuous
and charming lndy of one of the oldest
uoble families of France, nnd you talk
as if I were doing something degrading und unheard of."
"She Is the daughter of a man whose
vices were well knowu, her brother is
of tlie worst repute, she has led the life '
of an adventuress, Is tbe widow of a
deformed scribbler, and sbe occupies
a menial position iu the palace."
The king had stamped with his foot
upon the carpet more thnn once during
this frank address, but his anger blazed
Into a fury ut its conclusion.
"Do you dare," he cried, with flashing eyes, "to cull the charge of my
children a menial position? I say thut
there is uo higher in the kingdom. Go
back to Meudon, sir, this instant aud
never dare to open your mouth again
ou tbe subject."
The young man bowed low and walked with dignity from the chamber.
The king's first hot auger had died
away by uow and had left behind It a
cold, bitter spirit whicli was eveu more
formidable to his niitngouistB.
But ho had little breathing space.
His assnlliints knew thnt with persistence they hud bent his will before, aud
they trusted thnt they might do so
again. It was Louvois, the minister,
Bow who entered the room, with his
iMiijostic port, his lofty bearing, his
luge wig and his aristocratic face,
which, however, showed some signs of
trepidation as it met tho baleful eye of
the king.v
"Well, Louvois, what now?" he asked Impatiently. "Has some uew state
matter arisen?"
"There is but one new state matter
which has arisen, sire, but it is of such
importance as to banish all others
from our mind���your marriage, sire."
"You disapprove of it?"
"Oh, sire, can I help It?"
"Out of my room, sir! Am I to be
tormented to death by your Importunities? What! You dare to linger when
I order you to go!" The king advanced
angrily upon the minister, but Louvois
suddenly flushed out his rapier. Louis
sprung back, with alarm and amazement upou his face, but it was the hilt
nnd not the point which was presented
to him.
"Pass it through my heart, sire!" the
minister cried, fulling upon his knees,
his whole greut frame in a quiver with
emotion. "I will not live to see your
glory fade!"
"Great heaven!" shrieked Louis,
throwing the sword down upon tho
grouud. "I believe that this is a conspiracy to drive me mad. Was ever a
limn so tormented In this life? This
will he a private marriage, man, and

sprang to his feet aud held out bis

The king turned deathly pale and
clutched at her shawl with a trembling
hand, as though he feared thut sho
was about to put her resolution Into
effect that very Instant.
"No, no, Franeolse; you must not
leave me! You must stay with me and

for agitation, and he still grasped at
her dress to detain her.
"Some time must elapse before our

The Coming Debutante of the White
The coming debutante of the White
House Is ln every seuse a true daughter of ber father, says the Delineator.
It ls not often that tbe White House
bas the good fortune to harbor two
charming debutantes In a single presidency. Alice Roosevelt ls "wooed and
married and a.'" But here comes her
Bister Ethel to make ber flrst formal
bow next year. Ethel Roosevelt Is ex*
tremely popular with her friends of her
own age us well ns with older people.
The former like her for her good
temper nnd high spirits, the latter for
her womanly ways and ber extreme
devotion to her mother. Mrs. Roosevelt and ber daughter are thorough
Of course she loves horses. Her father's daughter could not help It.
Theodore, nt borne from Harvard for
bis vacation, remarked lu a superior
manuer after listening to in long account of the virtues of Montauk, her
own horse, "1 hnte n horsy woman,
Ethel." "Well." retorted tbe girl, unabashed, "I'd rather be talking nbout
an almost human borse than ubout u
lot of college fellows."
She ls an "all round girl." In the
last year or two she has shot up amazingly, and the shy. awkward little girl
who weniVlo the White House will
leave It a stately young woman, with a
frank charm of manner that ls sure to
carry her to brilliant social success.
No Yarns of Danger Could Deter This
Placid Old Lady.
Coming up from Wusblngton to New
Vork one duy. u woman wus seen to
uuke herself comfortable In one of the
'ilg chairs In the parlor car. and when
tbe trutu was well under way she proceeded to tuke out some pretty silk
knitting work, which would seem un
ideal occupation for a journey of a
few hours, us it Involves no eye strain
und gives one a joyous sense of time
well spent. But she had accomplished
only a few rows when the porter
walked through the cur. He looked at
the woman kuittiiig, pnused, hesitated
n moment us If he wanted to say something, then changed his mind and went
But In a few minutes he returned
with the conductor, who walked directly to the chair of the busy one and
without the least hesitation said:
"Beg pardon, mudum, but that, you
know, is against the rules."
"1 don't understand. What ls It
thnt's against the rules?"
"Knitting," replied the conductor
She laughed, then looked apprehensive and uncertain ns to the next move
of this seemingly harmless luuntlc who
presumed to tell her thnt knitting wns
against the rules. But she decided to
humor him.
"But why knitting?" sbe asked.   "I
nm allowed to rend, I believe, and to
play solitaire.  Why this restriction on
The conductor Bpoke again.
"Perhaps 1 should not have said tt
was against tbe rules," he said.  "That
was putting It too strongly.   But we
never allow a passenger to knit without n warning.  Hove yon ever thought
how dangerous those steel kuittiug needles would be ln case of an accident?"
The  woman   meditated.   This   mnn
was possibly not ns mad as he seemed.
"Isn't   It   rather   farfetched?"   she
asked.   "Accidents���serious ones���don't
happen very ofteu, and If one should a
little matter of a knitting needle or so
'wouldn't   make   much   difference,   I
should think."
The entire car was listening now,
and the conductor told of a wrecked
train from which theTSody of a woman
bad been taken. There was no nppar
ent cause for her death. She hnd been
taken out of a mass of wreckage
whlcb had formed n sort of roof over
ber, leaving her little or no space In
which to move, but quite safe from
everything but the possibility of fire,
which bad, however, been averted.
The surgeons hud been at a loss to account for her death till one of them
discovered that she had been stabbed
through the henrt by a sharp steel knitting needle out of the work which was
still ln her bands.
"There was another case, too," continued the conductor. "In one of my
trains several years ago there was a
passenger who Insisted on knitting
nfter I hnd warned her, and I went
away. An hour or so afterward the
car gave a sudden lurch. That woman
happened to be stooping over her work
to pick up a stitch or something, she
said later, and In some way or other
ono of her knitting needles pierced her
eye. She never recovered tho sight of
The passengers all wondered what
the woman with tbe knitting needle
would do. They thought she would
stop. But she didn't. She only sighed.
"Well, I've got to finish this for
John's birthday���Monday���so I guess
I'll take the risk," and placidly took up
ber knitting.
And   the  conductor   walked   away,
looking volumes that might have been
condensed Into one sentence, "Wouldn't
that jar you?" and disappeared.
And nothing  whatever  happened.
Old Time Ways and Those, of the Priss*
ent Day���Traveling   Model.
Time was when th. traveling sales,
aian for a wholesale manufacturer o(
men's clothing carried with him on the
road  as  many  as  fifteen  or  twenty ;
trunks  containing  made  up samples.
In those days be took along wlib bim
an expert packer from the factory to
unpack  the trunks when  they  hit a |
town and to pack tbem In readiness
for the next jump.
Tbe present day traveler for a wholesale manufacturer of men's high grade
clothing carries with him just two sample trunks, one a wardrobe trunk and
the other what ls called a swatch
trunk. In the wardrobe trunk he car-
ties suspended on suitable hangers fifteen or twenty made up suits. Carried
thus, these sample garments keep ln
good condition nnd show for whnt
they ure nnd to the best advantage.
In the swatch trunk tlie salesman
carries samples of ail the other fabrics
that his concern ls making up. Swntch
Is a trade nnme for n sample cloth 9
by 12 luches. Of swatches the snles-
mun may carry hundreds, and he carries besides some scores of ends of
Cloth, an end being a long piece cut off
(he entire width of the cloth.
Of swatches and ends the salesman
has a trunkful, nml with fifteen or
twenty mnde up suits to show styles
and workmanship aud those samples
to show fabrics he can show goods to
better advantage thnn from a bewildering assortment of hundreds of made
up suits.
Of course the man on the road with
clothing does not In these circumstances require a packer, but the pres
ent day traveler for n concern making
only high grade clothing does take
with hlm a model on whom to exhibit
clothes for the better display of the
made up sample garments he earrie��
nnd to show just how they will look
when woru.
What ls considered tho standard
model In the clothing trade Is a maa
five feet eight inches in height, thlrty-
slx Inches chest measure and thirty-
two luches wu'.st. He must of course
bo well built and otherwise of correc!
proportions. If a model five feet ntue
Inches in height were required be
would need to be thirty-seven inches
chest measure and thirty-three waist.
Tbo model must be young or comparatively young. He does not need
to be handsome, but bo must be of
good bearing, of Intelligence and of
good sense.
If the salesman Is nn able man and
the model himself is a man with ability In him, then by observation nnd experience the model ubsorbs nnd develops tbe art of snlesmnnshlp, and he
may become a salesman himself and
come to bnve a model to try on clothing for him.���Cleveland Plain Dealer.

A Prophetic Dream..
Tbe following prophetic dtenm was
related by the president of a theological seminary: It had been tbe custom
of one of the professors to invite all
the students, with members of the faculty, to dinner at a hotel on the annual
Thanksgiving day. On the morning of
that day the wife of this professor
suddenly fell dead ln her dressing
room at 8 o'clock. Thnt morning at 7
o'clock one of the students woke up
from a bad dream. He had dreamed
thut he sat down with the usual company at the Thanksgiving dinner nnd
that immediately one of his fellow students rose ln his place, saying that it
was his painful duty to announce to
the company that the wife of their
host had suddenly died at 8 o'clock
that morning. This dream, however,
he hud Instantly banished from his
mind as an uncanny probability and
had thought no more about It. But on
going to the dinner nnd taking his seat
with tbe company he was unspeukably
amazed to see the student seen in the
dream rise and to hear him make the
announcement made in the dream.

Making Steel Pens.
Briefly described, steel pens are made
as follows: First tho steel ls rolled Into
big sheets and then cut Into strips
about three Inches hi width. Tbe strips
ure heated to a bright red aud are then
allowed to cool gradually, whicli tempers them. They are next rolled to tho
necessary thinness and are cut Into
blank flat pens, nnd the pens while
flat are usually stamped wltb the brand
or the name of tbe manufacturer. To
shape the pens ls the next process.
The rounding makes tli,eui hold the Ink
and distribute It more evenly than
could be done If they were flat. To
harden them they nre heuted to a cherry red nnd theu suddenly cooled. This
not only hardens them, but makes them
clastic. The polishing, pointing and
finishing come next, and then they nre
rendy for use. Tbe little boles In the
pens at the end of the sllfiS serve to
mnke tbem more clastic and to facilitate the flo- Q** the Ink.

A Cure for Anaemia That is Showing Remarkable Proofs of Cures
in Stubborn Cases
When the body becomes weuk und
run down, either from overwork,
worry, or severe illness, an examination of tlie blood would show it to
be weak and watery. This condition
is culled anaemia, which is the medical term for "bloodlessness." The
common symptoms are paleness of
the lips, gums und cheeks, shortness
of breath and palpitation of the heuit
after tlie slightest exertion, dull eyes
and loss of appetite. Anaemia itsell
is u dangerous diseuse und may
gradually pass into consumption.   It
cun only be cured by treating its
cause���-which is the poor condition ol
tiie blood. The blood must be made
rich and red, thereby enubling it to
carry the necessary nourishment to
every part of the  body.
Dr. Williams' PiiiK Pills are the
greatest medicine in tlie world for
making new, rich blood and they
huve been curing anaemia and other
blood discuses lor nearly a generation, und ure now recognized the
world over us un invaluable household remedy,
Mrs. D. Kstubrook, Brooklyn Road,
N.i'., snys:���"My daughter Gertrude,
who is now in her sixteenth year,
wns sickly from early childhood, we
were constantly doctoring for her,
but it did not seem to help her in the
least. In fact us she grew older she
seemed to grow weaker. She wus
always pale and listless, suffered from
headaches, dizziness und palpitation
of tlio heart. She did not rest nl
night, nnd would often toss und moan
the whole night. Finally she had
to discontinue going to school, nnd
ns she wns continually taking doctors' medicine without benefit, I grew
discouraged, und 'cured we would lose
her. Friends urged us to give her
Dr. Willinms' Pink Pills und I finally decided to do so. By tlie time she
had taken three boxes there wus un
improvement, nnd a little later she
was uble to return to school. From
that on she grew stronger, hnd un
excellent appetite, slept well nt night
nnd is now ns healthy a girl as you

The  Quantity  of Seed  Required���The
Best Time to  Sow.
Prof. Saunders, of the Dominion
Experimental Farm, in a pamphlet
on flax growing, published in 1896,
said:���"When flax is grown for its
seed only it is usual to sow from two
to three pecks per acre, and when thus
thinly sown the plants are much
branched, nnd ure said to average a
larger yield of seed. This, however,
seems to require further investigation, and tlie character of tlie season
muy influence the results very much.
From tests mnde on the Experimental
Farm ut Brandon, Man., in 1894, it
would appear that heavier seeding
may be desirable, even when flux is
grown for the seed only. These experiments were made on plots of one-
tenth of an acre eacli on lnnd which
hud been summer fallowed, with the
following results:���
"Sown 16th Muy, 40 lbs. seed per
acre, ripe Kith August, yield per acre,
19 bush., 26 lbs.
"Sown 16th May, 90 lbs. seed per
acre, ripe 16th August, yield per acre,
20 bush., 50 lbs.
"In these experiments tlie flax was
sown witli the grain drill, cut with n
binder and threshed with the separator, cure being tuken to feed slowly.
"Experiments were also conducted
at Brandon in 1894 in sowing nt different dates with tlie following results :���
"Sown llth Mny, 90 lbs. seed per
acre, ripe ISth August, yield per acre,
18  bush.,   12  lbs.
"Sown 19th Mny, 90 lbs. seed per
acre, ripe 10th August, yield per acre,
20 bush., 50 lbs.
"Sown 22nd Mny, 90 lbs. seed per
acre, ripe 22nd August, yield per acre,
21 bush.,   14  lbs.
"These experiments will need to be
repeated for several yours before any
general conclusions can be drawn from
them. At the Experimental Farm ut
Indian Hend in 1890 the heaviest
crop of flux seed wus produced when
sown on the 17tlf*Muy, while in 1891
good results were hnd fiom seed
sown on the 3rd of June.
"From the experience thus far
gained, it would appear that tlie
best time for sowing flax throughout
the Canadian North-West would be
from the 15th to the 25th of Mny.
The flux plant is tender in the spring
nnd easily injured by frost. It is less
liable to injury from this cause ill
tlie autumn; but if exposed to much
frost before tlie seed is ripe, tlie seeds
become dark nnd discolored, and are
then very much reduced in vulue."
Some experienced llnx-growers hold
that it is safe to sow flaxseed as late
as June 15th, and that good results
have been obtained sowing even Inter,
but tlie general opinion seems to be
that the best time for sowing is tlie
lust two weeks of Muy und the early
dnys of June.
Prof. Saunders strongly recommends
flaxseed ns a good crop to be sown
either on first breaking of the prairie
sod or on back-setting. He says:���
"To make this clenr to those who are
unacquainted with tlie methods of
prairie fanning, it muy be said that
tlie first breaking on prairie sod is
made by turning over a wide and
shallow furrow nbout two inches
thick. When this is done in the
spring, tlie lnnd is ready for backsetting in the autumn; by whicli is
mount a second ploughing running
across the breaking to a depth of
nbout four inches. This cuts tlie decayed sod, turns is over and covers
it with ubout two inches of fresh
soil from below."

The Tragedy That Was Enacted In a
'   Lonely Fr-nch Inn.
A story that reads like a chapter
from a sensational novel comes from
tbe Fangais, In Lozere, southern
France. In this oot of the way Bpot
dwells an innkeeper named Avignon,
with his sister and little nephew, a boy
of eight.
On a recent evening an old man wbo
seemed to be sick made his appearance at the Inn nnd asked for accommodation. Avignon Invited him ln and
left the stranger alone with bis little
nephew while be went on with hit-
Wheu he re-entered the room tbe
boy, childlike, observed thut tbere
would be no need to suit the potatoes,
as tbe old mnn bnd put salt into the
saucepan In which they were boiling
during Avignon's absence.
If Avignon had any suspicions be
concealed them, but wben they snt
down to supper and tbe old mun refused to tnke nny of the potutoes the
Innkeeper acted in a wny thnt must
hnve astonished the guest. Avignon
took down his gun und, covering tbe
stranger with It, commanded bim to
partake of the vegetables, and despite
the protests nnd excuses of the old
man he was obliged to eat No sooner
hud be doue so thaa he fell to the
ground In great ngony aud soou after
Ward expired.
Avignon searched hlm and fount] Id
his pocket, besides a revolver and a
kniTe, n whistle. The latter suggested
nu Ideu to the Innkeeper. With tho
gun still rendy for imergencies, hs
blew tho whistle, and on two men
running toward the Inn ho fired. Neither appeurcd to bo hit, but tbe unexpected nature of their reception caused
tbem to turn tall, heedless of the fate
of their accomplice.
The plot, thus frustrated by the observation of the little boy, seems to
have been aimed at tbe savings which
Avignon Is generally credited with
having. Having poisoned Avignon, his
Bister nnd his nephews, tbey could have
possessed themselves of whatever there

Although Mr. Atkin's stay in the
navy was short���owing to severe dysentery contracted while on foreign
service���he had some exciting experiences. One of his most cherished possessions is a little book, "Our Sailors." written by W. H. Kingston, author of "Peter tlie Whaler" and other
fine sea stories. In it there is a description of tho attack on Fort Gus-
tavasvarm, Hnngo Bay, on May 22,
1854, by the Dragon and Magicienne.
Thut was Mr. Atkin's first taste of
warfare. He was on the Dragon,
which, Kingston, says, "had one man
killed and one or two wounded, and
wus considerably damaged.
That was in the second China war.
nnd before it was over Mr. Atkins had
n closed touch of the renlities nf warfare. He was in the Nnval Brigade
during the nttack on Onnton, and also
with the brigade wliich was sent to
destroy a town In the White Cloud
Mountains, and successfully accomplished its mission.

"Very good" by five different, commanding oflicers. He is still a hearty,
active man, capable of putting in a

One of the Most Interesting Places of
Learning  In the World.
It may not occur to many visitors
in Cairo .that that city is a university
town. Such, however, it is and as
such it is known and regarded with
respect all over the kingdoms and
principalities of Islam. Millions of
Moslems who have never heard of
the Khedive are interested in Cairo,
not because it is a great and wcaltliy
city, the capital of Egypt, but because it is the seat of the University
of El-Azhar. For that establishment
is the chief seminary of the whole
Mohammedan world, the gathering
ground for all those who would make
themselves proficient in the learning
of Islam, the training school for tlie
priests and doctors of the faith.

counted by hundreds. Like the European universities in the middle ages,

from every part of tlie three continents in which orthodox Mussulmans

Prophet. There nre Syrians, Moors,

from tlie Adriatic, und Mongols from
near the Pacific. Afghans, Punjabis,
Abyssinians and Sotnalis, blue-eyed
Circassians and cbonhiicd negroes. It

caused me much suffering, but Zam-
Buk soothed tlie pain, and although
it appeared for some time to be doing

Why Should   He  Be Selected  as Sand
Bearer to Satan?
It ls said and believed by many tbat
nil the blue jays disappear every Friday, and not one can be seeu until the
next dny, and this disappearance ls accounted for by the stntemeut thnt the
birds are under a compact with Satan
and tbat tbey devote each Friday to
delivering bim a supply of sand to
heat his caldron at the point of tor
But why should the blue Jay be selected as sand bearer to Satan when tbere
are so many birds of stronger and
fleeter wing? There are many super
stltlons that have a reasoning basis,
but this particular oue has nothing
whatever to go on.
Tbe origin of It lies In the fact that
the blue jay Is a most particular houit
builder. He knows how to build his
house, and he takes a great pride in it.
He doesn't bang his nest to a limb nor
glue It to a tree.
Instead he selects a substantial fork
or crotch of a limb, lays down a few
twigs of goodly size and strength, and
on these he superimposes a strong
foundation of clay, with layers of papers between, and when bis nest Is finished it is as substantial lu proportion
as one of our modern steel structures.
Thus fitted nnd finished, It ls admirably adapted to the rearing of n
strong and healthy brood, and the blue
jay goes about his business with the
earnest energy that characterizes all
his movements.
He raises his young and leads them
about from tree to tree and from bush
to bush until they have tried and
found their wlugs, nnd then, his responsibilities being over, he proceeds
with his career of gayety, a veritable
practitioner of rough fun and stage
Pounds and Weights.
Here ls a question that will tax thc
arithmetical powers of a youth. Suppose that for some reason or another
a shopkeeper wbo sold goods by
pounds and half pounds, but never lu
quantities exceeding twenty pounds at
a time, was told thnt he must transact
all this business with four weights
only, what must these four weights
be? The answer ls half pound, one and
a half pound, four and a half pound
and thirteen and a half pound. Witb
these it will be readily seen that any
weight from half a pound to twenty
pounds may be determined in pounds
and half pounds.���Gateway Magazine.
Pleasant Anticipation.
The Rev. Dr. O. M. Lamson, once
president of the American board of foreign missions, was called as a pastor
over a parish and was undergoing examination before a council wben the
question was asked hlm, "Do you believe In a hell?"
The retiring clergyman of the parish
sat beside him and, giving bim a nudge,
said: "Tell them yes. If you don't now
you will beforo you bare been here six
months."���Argouni t

Racing in Ancient Rome.
Ancient Rome had Its racing and its
popular and well paid jockeys. Betting
ran high, and tbe excitement of the
people over the races and their favorite color frequently led^to bloodshed.
Caligula���he who made a consul of his
horse���passed most of his time rioting
with the charioteers. The circus was
the place for the racing. The largest
of tbem, tho Circus Maxlmus, ahout
21,000 feet long, eould accommodate
480,000 spectators. Seven limes was It
necessary to race round tbe spina, n
low stone wall running down tbe center of the circus. The jockeys drove In
n light chariot���usunlly four In eucli
race���and wore close fitting tunics and
leather caps of distinguishing colors
That the profession wus n inlying om

It is somewhat curious thut such a

should be a comparatively modern
As a matter of fact it is just a hundred years since a paper manufacturer of Brighton, named Brewes, invented envelopes for letters in their

considerable time before their use became at all general, not, in fact, until
somwhere about tlie yenr i860.

living now will remember) a letter,
