The   Maple    Leaf    Forever—
if Cheese Factoryi
At the close of the Agricultural
Society's meeting on Monday afternoon, all of those present remained
over for a while to discuss dairy
Mr. Daniel Johnson, of Mud
Bay, stated that a gentleman from
the Province of Quebec) named
Leblanc, had recently visited the
Hud Bay district and had submitted propositions in regard to
establishing a cheese factory that
seemed reasonable. Mr. Leblanc
wus already operating two cheese
factories in Quebec Province,
and was thoroughly acquainted with all the details of the bus
iness. His offer was to erect n
buildihgj provide the necessary
plant and labor, and manufacture
a first-class quality of cheese for
his patrons ut a fixed price of two
cents per pound. Patrons were to
deliver their milk ut the factory.
It would be manufactured into
cheese and tbe product returned to
them, which they could dispose oi
|as they thought fit. A supply of
about 3,000 pounds of milk a day
would do to start with.
All present joined in a free discussion of the proposition, which it
wus believed offered many ttdvan-
| (ages. The general sense wus that
a creamery could hot bo successfully coudiu'ted in Surrey, but that
a cheeso factory might be operated
Mr. Chris. Brown forvored (lie
Idea of each patron owning bis
share of cheese und disposing of it
us he thought best, boculiso in this
way more satisfactory prices could
beobtuined for small jots, than if the
whole product was thrown upon
the market at once on a cash basis.
Mr. Johnson, being himself a
j practical cheese maker; was able to
give a good deal of Information on
tbe subject. He suid tbat in the
present state of the market, cheese
would bring a better price to Ibe
farmer than butter, Cheese at 10
cts. per pound wholesale, would be
equivalent to :!•'! cents per pound of
butter fat. Then, there would not
be the same urgency to sell, ns
|choose   ■iiii.tr>   this   season   would
a little give uud take from all
Mr. Johnson was requesled (o
try and arrange with Mr. Leblanc
for a public meeting at Cloverdnle,
and agreed to do so.
The renders of Si-hrhy Timks
will be kept posted on what further
transpires. We know of no question of more importance to farmers
at the present time than the method
of best disposing of their milk product, nnd there are mnny good
reasons for believing that a cheeso
factory will serve Surrey better
than any other scheme yet proposed.
Surrey Agricultural Association,
A meeting of the Directors of
Surrey Agricultural Society was
held nt the Sturr Hotel, Cloverdale, on Monday last.
Present Mr. D. Johnston, vice-
President, in the chair, and Messrs.
C. Brown, Thos. Shannon, H. T.
Thrift, A. Milton and J. F. Galbraith.
Minutes of last meeting were
read and approved.
A communication wus rend from
Mr. T. A. Sliarpe stating that he
would endeavor to arrange for the
travelling dairy to be at Cloverdale during (he exhibition.
Letters were read from Mr. Huteherson accepting the office of judge
of Fruit and Flowers, and from Sir.
Hossack consenting to net ns judge
of Farm and Garden Produce.
Accounts were presented from
Mr. McClinton, $2.25 for statute
labor, nnd from J. F. Gnlbruith,
$;!.50 for postage und stationery.
The secretnry wns instructed to
issue orders on the Treusurcr for
both amounts.
Mr. C. Brown culled attention to
the provision requiring certain
classes of horses to be pedigreed,
and thought that the pedigrees
should be dispensed with. On
motion it wns decided that no pedigree would be required for the entry of horses in any class.
Mr. H. T. Thrift -submitted an
explanation of $7.-10 charged in
the auditor's report against him,
und the explanation was accepted.
Mr. Thrift suggested that -Mr. D.
M. Robertson, of Tinehead, should
be appointed associate jud\c on
fruit. It was decided to adhere to
the arrangement made with the
secretary of the Horticultural Association.
A disctission occurred on the desirability of requiring that fruit
should be correctly named, it being
represented thnt ninny people hud
fine fruit to exhibit, but which
they could not correctly name. It
wus agreed thut (his mutter co

of whose duty was to correctly

Probably Chicago's first painting with
a history waa an excellent portrnitof one
of her fairosb oitiRQUs—a belle of 1837.
Finn work iut it was, however, at une
timo thore was imminent danger of its
becoming a decorative signboard of a
promiUQUt local livery stable..
Long before tbo dnys of tbo iron horse
& wandering artist strayed along what
in now the comer of Luke and Clark
streoffl, and thoro opened a studio,
Anion;,- the early patrons of his brush
was a dazzling creature who yearned to
havo her heanty perpetuated upon enn-
viih. She was a leader in tlio swelldom
of tlio to wu, tlie adored object of both
secret nud outspoken admiration of all
tho bachelors of her net. Her family had
not come over in the Mayflower, but her
blued was tho most cerulean in the faraway down cast whence it camo. Hence
it was with propriety that she proposed
to gratify her ambition, mid posed, bedecked with a wonderful "ninazone"
and waving numberless plumes, disporting herself with equanimity on the back
of n rearing, plunging steed.
Tho artist had u fine subject Needless to say ho rendered it full justice
When tho canvas was finished, the im-
pressive ensemble was placed upon ex-
hibitiou in the artist's studio, and everybody who was anybody dropped in and
lavished his admiration upou it Aftor
a time the novelty of the display wore
off. Peoplo had seen all they wanted of
it, but tho fair equestrieuuo's portrait
still hnug upou its creator's walls, unclaimed, und, alas, unpaid for. The
landlord of tho embryonio Sir Joshua
Reynolds grew uuploasant to him. He
became addicted to the abominable
habit of "dropping iu" npon tho young
artist aud making unnecessary remarks
about "tho rent" at all kinds of inopportune moments, until at lost life became a burden to the child of art, aud
iu despair ho decided to return to his
nativo cast and abandon all his dreams
of fitmo in tho wild prairie town of tho
west. i
Among the inartistic and unpreten
tious citizens of tho town was a certain
highly prosperous stable keoperwhowns
awaro of tho circumstances connected
with tlio unpaid for picture and tho
painter's impecuniosity. The night preceding tho former's proposed departure
for tho city of his birth it was given
out umong tho good people roundabout
that tho stable keeper bad purchased the
famons portrait for $500, and that
henceforth it should be the attraction of
his signboard ovor his new livery stable.
Tho rumor spread like wildfire within a
few Injurs, and nt nightfall artist and
stableman hnd the satisfaction of receiving a visit from the haughty relatives of tho picture's original Tho required sum was gladly paid by thom.
Two hundred fell to the lot of the
shrewd liveryman, tho painter received
his first price, $1)00, and every one was
serene over the historic transaction.—

men," who can fly tho white ensign,
ore dressed iu long, loan, frock coats,
loose trousers turned up, pointed boots,
immaculate collars and glossy hats—tho
aim of tho man who lias lived is to look
oa much liko a stockbroker as possible
Of course, dowu at the Castlo or on ftydo
pier thoy will blossom into a seasonable
crop of buttons and burgees and display
romarkablo activity in dodging that tyrant of tho deep—tho sailing master—if
tho water looks a bit choppy.
Two peoplo attracted a lot of attention by their palpable efforts at concealment, fie. although the day was so hot,
was onveloped in a loug cloak, with a
collar reaching past his ears, and his
cotton white hair and mustache showed
up occasionally in strong contrast to tho
deep brown of his faco as ho turned to
watch the porters attacking a hugo
mound of his bolongings.
Each box and bag was blazoned with
an imperial coronet over a monogram,
and then told ono another guardedly and
undor promises of profound secrocy
"that was Prince Paul Demtoff, the
owner of the now 100 rater now lying
off Southampton."
She, tho lady, was tall and gracefully
girllike. A neat, natty blue serge Red-
fern frock; a sunburnt straw nat, with
a dark blue ribbon; tiny tanned boots; a
whito shirt, with a turndown collar,
and flowing tie completed her costume,
saving a thick gossamer veil that completely hid her faco, and but for the
whiteness and purity of her neck it
would have seemed she Buffered from
somo facial disfigurement. It was evidently a desire not to bo recognized that
led to the adoption of the yashmak.
She was evidently expecting or avoiding some friends. Her head moved with
a birdlike quickness as she scanned each
new arrival on the platform, and her
slender hand, white and jewelless,
twitched nervously round tho handle of
the morocco monograinmed case she carried. Catching her eye from a distance,
ho walked toward her with tho easy,
firm self assurance that women like.
She saw ho was coming to her and waited calmly—perhaps she breathed more
Ho raised his soft hat, and with a
courtly bow said in perfect English,
with tho mere scent of an accent: "Par*
don mo, you are distressed. Have you
missed your maid? Can I bo of any service to you?"
Now his hat was off ho appeared a
prematurely white haired mau of 45 or
50, with a Arm face aud voice—a man
evidently used to command.
"Thank you very much." came In a
soft sibilant voice from beneath the
thick gossamer, "I have not only lost
niyVmaid, but my portmanteau. I am
af Hull it is under that pilo of luggage,
and*' — with a little shrug —"I am
afraid that pile of luggage is yours."
"Thut is mino, madanie. I will get
your bag at onco. Mny I ask where you
aro going? To Southampton, and it is
of tho highest importance you should
not miss this train? Pardon, do not trouble I will sou that all is arranged."
A fow words to the guard, a rapid
passage of backsheesh, and tho missing
bag with a dainty monogram and small
crest was placed carefully on the rack
of tho first class carriage by which the
veiled lady was standing. With the
coolness that seemed part of his nature,
tho Russian iudicated to a porter a
small hamper and had it placed in the
same compartment Thore must have
boon some collusion and a lavish tip,
for, though the train was crowded, the
guard, aftor tha imperceptible manner
of his kind, kept that carriage empty
until tho train started, and they found
themselves alono, securely locked in.
A sudden start run through her slender frame, Sho paused and asked quick*
ly, "Do you know whon thu next train
leaves Waterloo for Southampton?"
Ilo wus desolated. Of course sho
missed hor maid, but he was afraid not
for some hours.
"Madame is glad? Modarao Is afraid
of boing followed?"
"Yes, inadamu is glad. Sho docs not
wish to be taken back and forced into
a hateful marriage," blushing prettily.
Thn old, old story—stern father, elderly lover, titled, rich, but horrid. No
mother, no sister, no brother. Sho was
flying from bondage to her aunt, Lady
Aznrogoro, in Guernsey.
Yes, she was Lady Constance Az-
urogora Had ho really mot her at the
Ducliess of Arlington's dance? Sho
thought she knew his face. That was
why sho trusted him so implicitly on
the platform, of course. But if sho was
veiled, why was he so shrouded In a big
cloak? "Come, now," anxiously, "a
lady?  An elopement?"
No, no, nud again not Nothing sc
joyous Ho was Princo Paul Demtoff
and hnd fallen between two stools—
had incurred tho enmity of tho imperial
court through coquetting with tho nihilists. That meant tho Aloxlefsky Ravelin or tho fortress of Peter and Paul
iu St. Petersburg, and, on the other
hand, flndlng the ''party of progross'' go*
ing too far, ho was threatened with
death for deserting the rod flag.
"You must pardon me, prince, but,
wo scorn in trouble together," and she
laughed merrily. "Do yon know I half
thought you woro a detective?"
By this time he had returned to his
hamper and produced deftly a table
cloth, plfttes, knives, forks and sorvi*
ettoa, ft small bottlo of Chateau Mouton
Rothschild and a dainty cold chicken.
Their mutual confessions had lessoned
embarrassment, and tho lady, aftor
making a little tuouc, said that she was
so hungry and so glad to eat, etc.
They chatted and laughed as tho train
■sped through the beautiful country, and
liy tho time Southampton wns thought
of she had smoked half a mild cigarette
and ho had kissed her hand.
Sho readjusted her veil, and he as*
Binned his big cloak with a sigh as tho
whistle of Iho train signaled the station.
"Tho Guernsey boat does not leave
till midnight What; aro you going to
do? Whore will you put up?"
"I don't know. I will never bo taken
back alive. And you, you aro hunted.
What will you do?"
"Go on board my yacht Sho is lying
off hero, and tlie gig waits for tliis train
at tho lauding steps. I must hail thom,
as none of them know ma My agent
lias engaged au entirely new crow, skipper included, all English. I want no
nihilists on board." And ho looked
moodily out of tho window.
Sho mado a sudden movement, as if
about to speak, but drew back. Again
sho leaned forward, and the repctiton
roused him from his thoughts. Ho
looked up and saw her oyes glistening
even through tho thick veil She was
"What is tho matter? You are frightened. Can I help you?"
"I hardly daro ask you. Yon mny
think badly of mo, but I will not Iw
forced into this detostablo marriage.
Can you—may I"	
Ho divined her thoughts. "Stay on
board my yacht nnd board tho boat at
midnight? Yes, your ladyship, yos—in
all honor, yes." And ho held out both
his hands, and with a sob almost hysterical sho placed her tiny gloves in
them as tho train stopped.
Tliey left the station by a sido door
unnoticed, nnd walking down the broad
graveled road with the soft sward and
the old timo cannon pnssed tho crumbling walls aud found tho boat manned
by six bronzed typical yachtsmen, tho
skipper, a fine looking old man, sitting
motionless in the stern sheets holding
the yoke linos.
"Do you kuow a respectable woman
who can look after this lady until the
mail boat starts?" asked the prince as
he handed her carefully on board and
passed her portmanteau. Sho carried
tho morocco case herself.
"Well, surr, I've took tho libbaty of
invitin my old woman ou board today.
She's been a stewardess, surr."
"Capital, captain. Now, lads, give
way I"
The boat soon shot alongside a beautiful schooner yacht The crow manned
the gangway as the prince and Lady
Constance came on board, and a motherly, sunburned woman courtesied her
through an exquisitely furnished saloon
cabin into a bijou boudoir with a lace
curtained bunk and a host of feminino
"I mny sail tonight Is all ready?

knowing. "H'nil" hosaid to himself,

With a suprome effort sho regained her
self possession and said in a hoarse

"Lor bless yor royal 'ighuess, she's

"Get undor weigh at mice."
"Aye, aye, sir! All hands on deck I
Tumble up, my hearties!"
Her faco flushed deeply whon sho
heard tho clank of tho chain pump and
tho flapping of thu foresail, ami sho
thanked him with both hands aud a
sweet smile.
Under a good southwesterly breeze
tho yacht spun along merrily, throwing
the foam iu long, beautiful, foatherliko
turves from her clipper stern.
Tho lady stood leaning dreamily
against tho side ropes, and tho prince,
nn experienced sailor evidently, took
tho tiller aud threaded tho way careful*

I Thus spoke a friend of mine, one of
Iho best known patent attorneys in
Washington, nud then ho walked across
Km room and picked up from his desk
ono of those little cylinder bauksto hold
$5 worth of 10 cent pieces which wero
all the rage a few years ago. Holding
the toy iu his hand, he said:
"When you como to writo the ro-
manooof the patent office, you can mako
a chapter of what I am going to tell
you. You remember tho craze for these
banks a few years ago, aud how it
turned everybody to saving dimes until
at last thero was an actual scarcity of
that coin created? Well, the history of
this patent is worth whilo tolling,
"I never advance a man money on his
patents or speculate in thom. That Is
not my business, which is simply to
represent him in a legal capacity beforo
tho office. Hut ono dny a man came into
my Now York ofllce with nn idoa which
ho wanted to patent and about whioh
ho wanted to consult mo. I told him
thnt the fees and expousos wonld amount
to $180.
" 'Mr. Connolly,'I said, 'I haven't
$13ft in the world, and I uever expect
to hnvo that much at ono timo.'
"I looked at tho man, and I looked nt
the model and said to him, 'I havo
novor yet taken au Interest in a patent,
but I will pity all the expenses in connection with this patent if yon will give
me a quarter interest in it'
" 'Why?' ho askod.
" 'Because you hnvo a fortune there,'
I told him.
"However, tho man said he would
see abont it A fow days lator be camo
back with his brother-in-Inw, who hod
advanced tbe money. I procured bis
patent for him.
"Now, to go bnck and tell yon how
this man conceived tho idea for the
bank. He was in the employ of the
Pennsylvania Railroad company at Jersey City, receiving a salary of $14 a
week. He was not an uncultivated man,
but had a little knack for mechanics.
He was in tho habit of spending his
Sundays with his sister, and one day
when he called there ho found his nephew, a child of nbout 3 years old, sitting
on tho floor shaking a toy bank and trying to get tbe money out His sister explained thnt whenever the youngster
dropped a cent into the bank he, liko
most children, was wild to get all the
money out to count, and she went on to
say to her brother, 'Why can't you invent a bonk which will show bow much
there is in it,' and the brother said ho
thought he could.
"That gave him the idea. After he
got his patent ho had a few banks made,
and on Saturday nights he usod to put
them in a basket carry them around to
the toyshops in the neighborhood and
dispose of them. Ho fonnd only one
drawback—he could not make them
fast enough to supply the demand. After be had been doing business in this
way a fow weeks he came to see me.
He told mo what he was doing and
then went on to say: 'Mr. Connolly, do
you think you could find some one who
wonld lend me $3,500? Thero is a factory in Newark which I can buy for that
amonut, and which is just the thing I
want for making my banks. If I can
get hold of that factory, I am suro I can
sell all the banks I can make.'
"I told him I thought I could get
him tho monoy and to come and see me
in tho courso of a few days, A few days
later he camo in and said he didn't
think I need bother about finding him
that monoy, as be expected to have it
next week. I asked bim whero he waa
going to get it from.
"Yon will think I am embellishing
this story, because it sounds so improbable, but I am simply relating the facts
without tho slightest exaggeration or
ornament. He said ho bad a lottery
ticket, and ho expected it would draw a
prize. But wait; lot me toll this story
of tbo lottery ticket Ho and some other
men working at Jersey City decided to
mako np a pool and buy a lottery ticket,
each man to put in $1. When the time
came, tho others backed ont, and only
himself aud ono other, a carpenter, put
in their dollars. Tho ticket drew $5,000.
"With his share ho bought ont the
Newark factory aud In a short time had
000 mon nt work turning out thoso
banks, and even thon ho could not koep

Good Singing.
Can any ono oxplain to mo tho secret
Df the popularity of tho detostablo mode
of flinging which is now practiced so extensively in our city? I uood scarcely
add that I refer to what is commonly
called tho tremolo. It came into fashion
about 40 years ago nnd is it uot time
that that fashion should die a natural
death? Mme. La Grange was tho first
ivho introduced it hero. Sho was much
heralded, and therefore was bolioved to
be a flue singer—to tho extent that sho
drew fair audiences for a short time,
But peoplo soon wearied of her peculiar
stylo and ceased going to hear her. She
was passoe when she came to this country, and it was said that it was to cover
% broken down voico that sho had recourse to tho now hackneyed vibrato.
However, numy deluded singers, considering that her stylo must bo ono of tho

When I was studying vocal music,
great caro was taken to impress upon
my mind the extreme importance und
beauty of n 11 nu, pure nnd steady tone,
with its gradual crescendo und diminuendo. Ah, with what infinite pains I
tried to produce my notes without a
shadow of wavering or change of quality I And now to think that tho bountiful sostennto is considered of but small
account by so many peoplo who, I maintain, ought to know hotter I I havo seen
a roomful of peoplo moved to tears by a
pathetic song rendered by a well sustained voice, aud wilh distinct enunciation of thu words. Yet who would ever
dream of wooping over tho most, touching ballad iu tho world when sung In
thn miserable, shaky style now iu vogue,
which leaves tho listener in doubt, as to
whether ho is hearing sung O sharp "r

Among the best of vocalists belonging
to our city and its vicinity this tremolo
is often adopted. For some reason so*
prauoH and baritones use it most frequently, aud I may add ad nauseam. It
Is uiore than disagreeable ou the stage
ond in the parlor. It is beyond endurance whon it obtrudes itself in the
church service. No place or occasion is
safe from its impertinent intrusion. I

The Powder Making Family.
A strange heritage was that bequeathed to his children by Kleuthere Ircnee
Du Pont de Nemours, when, driven from
France by the revolution, he came to
the faraway state of Delaware, and
with skill in chemistry, acquired under
the great Lavoisier, set to work in 1803,
making gunpowder for America and the
civilized world, if a world can be called
civilized that uses so much of it Vast
wealth he prepared for his descendants,
the family fortnncs today uniting into
nonr]y $100,000,000. But aloug with the
riches lie left a dread responsibility thnt
presses down relentlessly upon every son
and grandson. "Thou shnlt not rest;
thou shnlt uot fear," is written on the
brow of every Du Pout child, and read
in tho life of every Du Pout man. If
ever a family was brave, it is tho Dn
Pouts; if ever a family had need of
bravery, it is they.
Tho Du Pouts monopolize the gunpowder business of America, controlling
28 of the 83 mills in this country. They
do this by confiding to no oue, not even
to tho archives of tho patent office, their
secret methods of composition, thoir specially devised machinery, and all the
lore of gunpowder making thut has come
to thom through generations. This inherited knowledge is tho family treasure, aud to guard it inviolate the Dn

Chinese Cooking.
This knowledge of what we are pleased
to call artificial digestion runs largely
through all Chinese cooking. Whenever
meats, especially the heavy aud indigestible class, are to bo employed us food,
the cook increases their assimilative
character by the use of* pepsiniferous
trlpo aud vinegar. I huve often out of
curiosity examined the numerous mado
dishes of tho Mongolian cuisiue with a
view to ascertaining their constitution.

A travolor who recently returned from
Alaska says: "The Alaskan brown beai
is a huge, shaggy animal, varying in
length from 0 to 13 feet and weighing
from 800 to 1,600 pounds, I found him
to be an expert fisher, and during the
salmon season he frequents all the rivers
emptying into tho Bering sea aud the
north Pacific and thoir tributaries as ful
as the flsh go. After the salmon mn ii
over the animal retreats into tho recesses
of the hills, where berries and small
game are plentiful. Among other things
ho does besides fishing aud occasionally
chewing up a hunter, ho is a great road-
maker for this part of Alaska. Nor only
aro the bunks of the streams trodden into
good trails hy theso huge lnmboHiifj
beasts, but the swampy plains are crossed In every direction bypaths leading to
tho hills. Tho traveler will do well to
follow them in journeyiug across tho
country, as they invariably load to the
host, feeding places along the stream nnd
form the best routes tu tho hills."
A hunter who has spent somo time
thero recently chasing brown bears
writes several of his experiences to the
Seat I le Telegraph.
"My first encounter," ho says, "with
one of thoso brown boars was a startling
experience for tue, uud I have always
thought equally so for tho bear. Wo had
beeu working up against a strong current of the Koownk river all day, and
toward nightfall pitched our tent at the
base of a high hind' forming the right
bank of the stream. Whilo supper was
being prepared I climbed the bluff to
get a took at tbo country aud was walking along with my gun carelessly hold
in my left hand. Thn top of the bluff
was densely covered almost, to tho edge
with Spruce and alders, and the undergrowth was so thick that it was impossible to see more than u fow feot through
it. Ahead of mo a cluster of rocks offered a temporary place to sit down and
enjoy the view, uud I made for it Just
as I reached tho nearest rock a tremendous shaggy animal arose apparently
from under my feet, uud I immediately
recognized in him the browu bear of
whose fierceness tho natives had beeu
telling me for weeks. My first instinct
was to shoot, and I probably would have
done so had my gun been in my right
hand, but the first motion I made the
bear reared on his haunches nnd was su
formidable looking that I concluded to
wait and see what he intended doing.
After a moment's hesitation, during
which he turned his head from side to
side and licked bis chops in a most suggestive fashion, he dropped on all fours,
aud with wonderful quickness turned
and sprang out of sight in the dense
undergrowth. When I returned to camp
and related my experience, Tah-tah-rok,
my native guide, assured mo that the
bear must recently have concluded a
heavy meal, or otherwise he would have
attacked me.
"Some officers from some of the vessels of the Bering sea fleet went ashore
at Herendeeu bay during the summer of
1891 on a deer hnut, and one of the
party saw a bear about 100 yards distant
eating berries. Without thought of the
consequences, he raised his gun and fired
at the luiimal.
"Tho shot went wide of the mark, but
at the report of tho gun the bear started
for the hunter on a dead run. His charge
was met with a shower of bullets from
the officer's repeater; bnt, although badly wouuded, tho Infuriated animal did
not hesitate an instant and rushed
straight at his euemy. When within
about 10 feet of the hunter, the bear
rose on his haunches aud prepared to
close. Blood waa pouring in streams
downhisbody. Ono bullet had shattered
bis upper jaw, but ho was bo full of fight
that the final outcome of the struggle
would havo been extremely donbtful ha d
not another of tho party arrived and
ended the fight by shooting tbo brute
through the brain. An examination of
the bear's body showed that he had been
struck six times. Three of the shots
were In parts of the body ordinarily considered vital and would doubtless have
caused death, but the vitality of these
animals is almost incredible. Instances
arecitedof thoir running over 100 yards
aftor being shot through tho heart
"Last summer, while I was at Sand
Point, two hunters cumo in, after an absence of over a mouth in tho vicinity of
Portage bay, and reported having killed
83 bears. One day they killed seven. In
order to show that they were not spoiling hunters' yarns they brought the
skins with them, and sold them at a
trading post nt Hand Point During the
summer of 1801 two prospectors were
looking for coal lauds near Port Moller,
and about a mile from tho shore they
come upou an immense browu boar on*
gaged In catching salmon in a small
stream. Ouo of tho prospectors immediately opened fire, and evidently wouuded the brute badly, but he got out ul
sight in the thick brush. Being unxiout
to secure tho skin the two men started
to follow the wounded animal. They
had not gone a dozen stops before the
enraged nud wounded brute turned on
them, and before either one could flnwi
shot ho seined ono mnn by the leg and
bit It nearly off, and then sprang npon
his companion and knocked him senseless with the blow of his terrible paw.
Having, as he thought, finished his enemies, the bear quietly ambled off, and
was subsequently fnund dead a fow hundred yards from tho scono of battle."

Wonderful Fecundity of Flowers.
A Binglo seed of the common sweet
pea of the Emily Henderson variety has
beeu known to produce a stalk yielding
3,000 flowers per month during tho
flowering season, which generally lasts
from Jnue 15 to Oct 1. A record of the
flowers cut from a row of theso peas 60
feet in length, plants or vines standing
at a distance of nine inches apart, shows
that the first flowers were plucked on
June 11 and the last on Oct 80. Evon
though badly matted—which mado closo
cutting almost impossible aud allowed
many thousand to go to seed—the 60
foot row exhibits the following remarkable record: Flowers removed during
Juno, 80,000; July, 17,600; August
20,000; September, 6,400; October (up
to the evouing of the 19th), 3,600;
total, 73,400. As noted, a large number went to seed, besides the buds that
were smothered ont on account of the
vines being so badly matted. There is
scarcely a doubt but that the row would
have yielded above 100,000 flowors during the season had conditions been more
favorable.—St Louis Republic.

Mortality Is frail, but Its preservation
Is neatness,—New York World,
Tho tourist who only comos to Egypt to
shun "winter und foul weather" knows
nothing of tho majestic glories of the
Nile flood. The ancient Kilometer at
the south end of the island of Roda. just
above Cairo, is ouo of tho most in ^resting sights of the placo.' Tho water enters from the rivor by a culvert into a
well about 18 feet square, with a graduated stone pillar in tho center. On each
sido of tho woll is a recess nbout 0 feet
wido and 3 feot dcop, surmounted by a
pointed arch, ovor which is carved in
rolief a Kufio inscription, and a similar
inscription is curried all around the
well, consisting of verses of tho Koran.
A staircase goes down tho woll, from
the steps of which tho initiated may
read tho height of tho water on tho pillar, but they aro fow In number, aud the
hereditary sheikh of tho Kilometer,
whoso dnty it is to keep tho record, is
a person of somo importance. Tlio Nil-
ometer dates from A. D. 801, and I beliovo In tho archives of Cairo may bo
found tho daily record for 1,000 yoars.

English engineers took tho river in hand

After tho rivor has begun to riso its
height is daily chanted through tho
Cairo streets until it reaches 10 cubits
ou tho gaugo. At this point the Khalig

the heart of Cairo, is opened—up to this
point it is dry, nnd full or empty it is

at presont, but iu former days it occupied an important placo, and when the

down its bed it was looked on that the

Tho head of this canal is on the right
bank of tho river, just south of Cairo.
The water enters a channel some 80 feet
wido, with a high wall on its loft and a
sloping bank ou its right or southern
flank. The water then flows under the
pointed arch of an old stuuo bridge. Tlie
bed of the canal is cleared so that it
would flow iu nt a gaugo of about \\%
cubits, but au eartheu bank is thrown
across it about four feet higher.
There is uomore interesting ceremony
In Egypt than the annual ontting of the
khalig, as the opening ceremony is
called. It takes place between Aug. 6
and 15. Days before preparations are
made for the festival. Tents with innumerable lamps are placed along the woll
on the one side. Frames for oil manner
of fireworks ure erected on tho saud bank
on the other side. All tho notables are
there in full uniform or in canonicals.
The khedivo himself or his representative, tho Sheikh ul Islam, the highest
dignitary of the Mohammedan faith;
the Sheikh el Bckri, tho Sheikh ol Sadat,
all the learned scribes of the great university of the Azliur, tho cabinet ministers and under secretaries, the sirdcr of
the army and his staff, the judges ond
the financiers.
Tho Egyptian troops aro turned out,
salutes are fired, and about 8 o'clock in
the warm summer night the classes all
assemble under tho gayly lighted tents,
the masses crowd round the frames tor
tho fireworks, the streot is lined with
harem carriages full of closely veiled
figures, though it is not much that they
can see from thoir broughams. Out in
the river just opposite the canal's mouth
is moored an old hulk of a certain seagoing outline, whioh has been towed up
from Bulak during the day and is an
emblem of tlie time when tho great republic of Venice sent an envoy to witness the ceremony. This boat is full of
lamps, and fireworks too. Aa the night
deepens tho excitement increases. The
populace on the bridge and opposito
bank are shouting, yelling and dancing
wildly round tho fireworks.
On the other sido are tbo gay uniforms
and lighted tents, from which we can
look over the wall down on the dark water, where you seo brown figures plunging in and, waist doop, digging with
their hoes at the embankment thnt

in regard lo Hit' Fraser bridge, il
.may now lie excepted as a woll
founded conclusion Unit tlio notorious "Rand sohetne,1' under its
now phase, is Iho same old lizzie
it always was, and that (lie Westminister people who made use of it
some months ago tp "choke off"
those earnest citzens who had determined to vigorously push tlie
Undertaking, did so with the full
knowledge that they were gulling
the public. In respect to bridge
^ind railway, Mr. Rand hus undeniably failed utterly in what was
;»o vauntingly pledged for him.
The momentpus ,$-10,000, that wus
so ready to be deposited ins a teken
pf good faith, has jnost sadly failed
to materialize, and yet those citizens
who are responsible for the "foolishness " that lias been put upon the
people, appear to lie, and no doubt
are, eminently satisfied, for they
have accomplished what they
sought—they have made delay.
No fair minded man can have
the smallest grain of censure for
any citizen of Westminster who
openly opposes flip construction of
Hie bridge by the city as an under-
faking not warranted by existing
circumstances. There are undoubtedly very serious difficulties
to be considered, and much to call
/or caution. But, if it be true, as
appears, that a small circle of intriguers have resolutely set themselves to baulk the majority, not
|>y the force of argument, b])t by
bold and designing wit, it is about
time tbe majority asserted itself.
It has been wonderfully meek under imposition.
We have before us a letter from
one of the leading citizens of Westminister, than whom no/me is better qualified to gauge tlie game
that is now in progress, from which
we tiike the following extract: "LTn-
" less a healthy and aggressive pub-
'' lie interest in this most jmport-
'' unt matter (the bridge) sets in
" soon, I fear two or three selfish
f individuals will succeed in 'side-
<" tracking' the whole thing, to the
" incalculable injury of the lower
" Fraser district, and the loss of
" the Provincial subsidy, together
•' with about six thousand dollars
'' which it lias already cost New-
" Westminster."
That is plain talk, and undoubtedly it is time for the display of a
degree of aggressive interest,   Surrey has 11 concern  in the bridge
ami   in  the   Provincial   subsidy
granted towards the construction of

iufuruii'd, of course, of the action
taken by the Council the previous
evening, and-of which the substance

A little enquiry ariipngst townspeople indicated a condition of affairs
by no moans creditable to the city
ir its representatives and anything
but encouraging for the bridge
prospect. While Ibe supporters of
Ibe "Rand scheme" arc looked upon with .suspicion and In some
luarlers are the subject of much
ridicule, the advocates of the Bnllen

of corrupt motive, and although
Alderman Johnson is oredited with

that offer is considered an advantageous one. it is not expected that
the Interested opponents of it will
be disposed to regard it wilh any

Victoria, Sept. 6.—Prevost arrived here on the str. Rosalie this
morning in charge of Sergeant
Langley and Constables McKennn
and ltoss, and was taken at once
to tbe city jail and locked up in a
cell iiikthe upper corridor. He
took Wi arrest very hard and seems
quite'^liroken down, He did not
have anything to say for publication. The arrest was effected very
quietly on Wednesday, by Mc-
Kenno, who found Prevost in a
hotel at Roche Harbor. Prevost
waived extradition formalities,
and was taken to Port Townsend,
arriving there last evening. He
was arraigned in the Police Court
this afternoon at 2.30 o'clock, on
two charges of embezzlement from
Fiaser Bridge Contract.
The' Westminster bity council
met on' Monday niglil, and thpre
was a'somewhat unexpected development in bridge matters. Three
aldermen wore absent, including
the special champion of the "Rand
scheme," and the advocates ol the
Bullen'bridge arc being accused of
taking an unfair advantage. ' The
following are extracts from the
Columbian's council report:
Moved by Aid. Fales, secondpd
by Aid. Rain : "That in thcopinion
of this Council Iho best interest of
the city ilcniundft that work begin
on the long delayed Fraser river
bridge without further delay, on
account of the present low price of
material, and the favorable condilioii of Ihe money market, besides being a means of employing
our idle ratepayers, and giving us
belter railway connection, increasing our trade with the district and
establishing our position. Everything considered, the present is a
very opportune time to proceed
with this work, und thereby secure
the Government grant of #18,000
per annum ; nnd whereas, when we
accepted office at the beginning of
this year, we found two sols of
plans to choose from, namely, the
Dominion and the liullen Bridge
Companies' plans, on which we hud
Theo. Cooper's report. Since that
time we have received the comparative analysis from competent local
engineers. Having gone through
the plans' very carefully, with report and comparisons beforo us,
und finding with respect to sub arm
superstructure, stability,durability
and maintenance, the Hullen Bridge
Company's offer is the best by
ubout. $14,000. Whereas, having
found from experience that we can-
liot hope to sell our bonds at a premium, unless we placo them on the
market iri a satisfactory condition
and having the best authority for
saying that the city is not committed to anything unless our bonds
do sell at a satisfactory price, we
still retain tho sole right to say in
any event whether tho price is satisfactory or not. Therefore be it
resolved, that the contract be
awarded to the Bullen Brjdge Company, subject to the satisfactory
sale of our city bonds."
Aid. Johnson said there was one
thing wrong with the motion among
other inaccuracies. There were
more than two plans before the
Council. The Hamilton Bridge
Company's plans were still before
the Cpuncil, and had been since
they were submitted. They had
never been rejected.
Aid. Bain replied that the Hamilton bridge would cost too much.
Any move towards adopting the
Hamilton bridge meant no bridge
at all. The Bullen plan was the
cheapest and best, and there should
be no hesitation about giving the
contract to the Bullen Co. simply
on the ground that they are Americans.
Aid. Buckland wanted to know
what the movers were working on.
and he objected to the statement
that the Bullen bridge was the best
and cheapest,
Afler further discussion the motion was put and carried, on the
following vote : Ayes—Bain, Fales,
Forrester and Munday; nays—
Buckland, Jagger nnd Johnson.
Aid, Bain moved tbnt the City
Solicitor be Instructed to draw up
a provisional agreement with tlie
Bullen Co., thnt the plans be submitted to the two Governments for
approval, and that tho Bullen Co,
be notified of the motion.

The Lulu Island artesian well is
over 800 feet deep but no water

Aid. Bain replied that there was
nothing wrong aliout it, because if
the bonds did not sell satisfactorily
there would be nothing come of the
matter. The City Solicitor had informed him that the Council was
taking no risk of a lawsuit in going
as far as this motion led.
Mayor Shiles said he wanted it
thoroughly understood that he
would sign no contract, unless
legally compelled to, that did not
fully satisfy him.
The motion curried on the same
vote as before.
