Langley, Oct. 12th; 1803.
7>oirf Fishing on the Nicomekl.
On Moday morning a party of
five made an early start from Cloverdale to study nature and indulge
in philosophical meditation while
enjoying the peaceful recreation of
angling along the banks of the
smooth-flowing Nicomekl river.
The party comprised Messrs. T. C.
Atkinson, Alex. Godfrey llnd H.
Brooke, of Westminster; and Ur.
Kay and the Scribe, who belong
here. The DDfctbr, who has killed
many tine troth in the NicnmCkl
this Season, klhdly agreed to introduce the party to the most
promising podls, a service that added greatly to thb enjoyment; for ex:
cepting Mr. Brooke, none bf the
others were acquainted with the
stream in the locality of what is
known as Nicomekl lake. About
a iliile east of Clover Valley post -
office the river was crossed at the
township line Which IS being Opened up by the Municipality. Here
are three nice pools and rods and
tackle were got In order. The
Judge (Police Magistrate Atkinson)
thought thing* looked v'ery promising, and aS by this tiniS Mr.
Brooke had madfe a cast and hooked a big salrhbn which was contending desperately with the light
trout tackle; there was a gentle
breeze of excitement while the party
witched Mr. Brooke land his fish.
Dr. Kay, a little farther up' the
pool, just now hlSo hooked a salmon
end Mr. Godfrey suggested that
bn* of the party return for a wagon.
The Judge; who had rtull of the
Way Mr. Rbbertson bags tfoUt On
thb Serpentine river, said lib had
been thinking all morning that
their baskets were rather small.
Mr. 11 oil f rev said he had thought
bf bringing a bag, but he refrained
because bf a sentimental idea that
the trout might Object to a receptacle so unsportsmanlike TheScrilib
Baid he Was accustomed to Serpentine methods, and when he occasionally yanked but five or six
hundred pounds of trout he didn't
allow himself to be troubled with
sentimental ideas of sport; he
would have brought a bag; he said;
only he Didn't expect much from
the Nicomekl,
Just then Mr, Brooke hooked
another salmon at one end of.the
pool, Dr. Kay landed a two-pound
trout at the other, and in the centre the Jltdge wiis struggling with
something that was making great
splurges for liberty and finally did
break aWiiy.
"Gad; Frank," said Mr. Godfrey,
"I wish you had brought a bag."
"Kl«x.|" Mtttttied Ihe scribe; "do
you sue those plethoric pockets ?
Woll, jitHt observe what comes out
ol tliem."   (forthwith the modost
newspaper man reached down into
his coat and drew forth, one after
tlie othor, four capacious sackH.
It wuh quite apparent that the
party felt a pronounced soiihc of
Afler exhausting thoso preliminary pools, a break was niiulo for
tlie choicer waters above Mr.
Ilrooke, who wiih equipped with
wading boots, decided to follow the
bod of tlio stream, and tho scribe

choHo the quicker and easier way of
following old logging roads and in
a littlo while struck the river again
about thrco-quarterH of a mile up,
From hore for another half-mile
is a series of pools delightful to the
eye of an angler, Along the left
bank the brush is cut back ton or
twelvo feet and the cleared space is
covered with a grassy sod growing
to tho very edge of the high bank —
delightful conditions) that made
one almost gasp with pure satisfaction. It was agreed that here was
an angler's ideal) and the scribe
only seemed unappreciative.
"What's the matter with you ?'-'
said Mr. Atkinson,
"Dcm it, Judge," he explained,
"I ought to have brought more
The day was beautifully bright.
There had been a light frost the
night before, and the sun rose in a
clear sky. By about nine o'clock
the air was as warm and balmy us
in midsummer. As angling proceeded it became manifest that the
day was too bright for good lishing.
The trout wero sloW to rise, and
warily retired to the further bank,
requiring a skillful cast to reach.
Dr. Kay is very expert with the
rod, and in consequence the trout
rather favored his fly; but there
was no monopoly of success, and
all the baskets grew heavier as the
party proceeded up the stream.
About eleven o'clock; the lako was
reached. At the first cast Mr.
Godfrey hooked and successfully
landed two beautiful silver trout.
He was naturally elated, and while
preparing for another cast said to
the scribe i • »- •»
"Frank, it was very thoughtful
of you to bring those Batiks:"
The lake, as a "lake " isn't up to
much, It is no more than a pool,
considerably larger; but little if
Any wider, than many others on
the river. Any ordinary angler
could easily throw a fly acrosB it.
The only excuse for calling it a
lake is in thus distinguishing 'it
from other podls. Mr. Eric Anderson has a ranch here; and his
clearing extends down to. the
water's edge and about half-way
up the "lake." If one wishes to
go beyond the clearing he must
take a boat; for the water is much
too deep to wade; and the lining of
brush is too dense to force a way
through. It is a most likely place
for trout; but no great success was
met with notwithstanding. By the
way, the Scribe has great faith in
grasshopper as a bait for irout,
and used it on this excursion; Allowing for lack of art in casting it,
he thinks that kicking grasshopper
proved itself more enticing than
made-up flyi as it ought to be to any
trout of respectable discernment.
When competing with fly in the
same pool, he is Of the opinion
that grasshopper had the bpst of it.
For instance; he and Dr. Kay
had taken a position near each
other on the "lake;" and the Doctor didn't get a rise. The scribe;
however; cast his grasshopper upon
the water, arid it immediately attracted finny attention; and returned shortly increased by twb
pounds of trout.
"Hii|" snid the Dbctor; when he
saw the scribe exerting his muscle,
"you've got a good one there.
Don't try Serpentine on him or
you'll lose your tackle."
The advice was sound. After a
little Cautious play, Mr. Two-pounder Was guided into shallow water;
and then a serpentine yank landed him well over in the grass ; but
the tackle was broken.
As Messrs. Atkinson and Godfrey
had to return to Westminster that
evening, 1 o'clock was their limit
of time for fishing, so after it brief
stay at the lake; all started oil the
return trip; having an hour to dally
in reaching the Townline bridge.
About half-way down thb Judge
and the scribe were lolling on thb
grass, lazily "thrashing" A pool.
The trout didn't like grasshopper
and they didn't like fly either; The
baskets would still hold a few
pounds more.
"Judge," said the scribe, "this
has been pretty slow."
"Ohi" rtttirned his Worship! "1
feel well satisfied. If wo caught
many more thoy would be a burden to curry."
"Don't you fool yourself, Judge ;
if I bad caught a thousand pound!
you'd be surprised at my packing
"Oh, come, conic—"
.ItiHt then there was a commotion around the next bend, where
Mr. Godfrey was getting some work
in. "Whir-r-r," went the reel, then
a splash and a winding up, uml a
"wliir-r" again. The others Jumped
up and crossed over, and the Judge
"Hnvo  you   hooked   a salmon,
Mr. Godfrey ?"
Not much. Judge—a silver trout
—a ten-pounder—-you can't do it,
you cun t do it—1 hnvo you—ob,

Mr. Brooke and muke a dny of it.
The trio soon reached Hall'.-:
Prairie road, nnd then took through
Mr. Murphy's fields as a short cut
to Cloverdale. It was a fatiguing
tramp. Mr. Godfrey said he never
saw a farm cut up with so many
fences, and theJudge was of opinion
thut a farmer who constructed such
high fences lacked discretion in the
application of energy. Coming
along the homo stretch, it wa.
agreed that the puck was a tritie
wearying. The Judge thought about
fifteen pounds of trout wus load
enoUgh for him, and Mr. Godfrey
Baid ten or twelve pound* was up
to his measure nnd be wus glad he
had left the salmon behind,

scribe, "I don't suppose I have

and the scribe showed Up with (

No remarks;
At night Mr. Brooke was able to
produce 15 pounds., and Dr. Kily
was at the top with is pounds.
After dinnbr, the horse was hitch:
ed up, the pharaphernalia of the
expedition carefully packed away
in the bUggy; and Messrs. Atkinson and Godfrey were ready to
make a start for town. Said thy
"Say; Frank; libre's a good oat
sack, if it's any use to you."
"Look here; Alex." returned the
scribe, "you're too slv. Sack be

And they got.

frey may dbnv the truthfulness of
the above, and if thby do thb appeal

Under tho sholter of a friendly hill a

Btelnort's hands loosened their grnsp.
Hin strength ebbed fust. But Franz
caught the flaccid hands firmly in his

to his broad shoulders. Ilo dropped the

nnd so met the shock of battle*.
Nightfall found tho army of tho crown
prince gathered in and around a Frencl
village, far from the ground on which
Franz, after tlie first charge, hud delivered Steinert to tho ambulance, tho
nurses nnd the doctors. Through the
successive actions of the day tho young
student had served as trumpeter.
Sboutlug, foraging for provisions,
cheering, singing nud laughing as

trooperB surged through the littlo captured town. After darkness bud como
on Franz, pushing his way through the
crowded thoroughfares, found himself
beforo nu inn whero mnny of his comrades were eating. They shouted to him
to enter.
Winking nnd blinking as bo came
from tlm darkness into tho strong light,
Franz failed to seo tho signal slyly
given by a burly dragoon. Thero wns a
hasty scraping of chairs on tlio bare
floor, n clatter of feet, and tho survivors
of Franz's squadron sprang to their feet.
With nu npliftcd sausage tlm signal
was given. Tlicu"Hoeh! Hocbl" rolled

"Why, rutin," growled tho burly
dragoon, "dou't yon know it was n bravo

"Ho is my friend," answered Franz
simply, "ray comrade."
Thero was a stir nt tho door and the

It wns the captain.

The next Indian reservation to bo
thrown open to the whites is that of tho
Nez Purees, though not tho one occupied
by the tribo of that unnio which was
onco ciiplureil in n body with their lender, Chief JoHoph, by United States troops
under General Nelson A. Miles. This
reservation is located iu tlio Clearwater
valley of Idaho, to tho northwost of tho

of which so much is now seen iu the
newspapers.  Lying botweou two of the
most noted wheat sect ions of tho northwest, tho I'nlotiso country of Wiu-iiing*
ton nud tho Camus prairie of Idaho,
there is every ituhdii to believn tho soil
of tho ClenrwuterreHorviition will prove

it may perhaps outdo (hem in yield.

enormous quantities of wheat, outs uud

world famous. Now orchards aro being
set, und doubt less UliBWlU render them

According to Indian traditions, the
Clearwater valley was the earliest home
of tho red num. In this respect it Occupies tho same relation to Iho aborigines
of North America that llio garden of
Kden holds in the history of the white

the century, when Lewis and (.'lark went
ou their famous trip of exploration
through the fur northwest, they heard
wonderful stories of this region, where,

seen uud the grass \v,is always grceu. It
wun nnd i.i the belief of the Indians that
thu gods part tho snowolouds so us to
let the sun shine into this reservation,
as nu especial lokeii of fuvor to tho Nez
I Vices, und these havo until recently
been vory loath to givo up tribal ownership of tho tract. Now, however, they
huvo consented to hold their binds in
severally and to let the whites neighbor

Indians" in distinction from tho "non-
treaty" tribo who were banded under
Chief Joseph in 1877. Tlfeso savages
wero then located in Wallowu county,
nnd tho war was brought about by their
refusal to remove to tbe reservation.
Tlio Indians now on tlie reservation
woro settled thero iu 1860, und hnvo
long been regarded by their whito acquaintances us among tlie most progressive of ull tho aborigines. They nro uot
"blanket Indians," uor do they live in
lodges or wig wains, but iu houses. Thoir
dress is tho same us that of tbo whites,
and they cut thoir hair. In a small way,
j too, they havo engaged in ngricnlture,

Cleurwator valley, hus moro cattle than
any whito ranchman in thnt part of Idaho, and an Indian named Luko is noted
for possessing cattlo of finer breeding
than are to bo found elsewhere iu (ho
far west. Theso mou nud others like
them havo been nt tiio head of tho opposition to tbo opening of tho reservation. Under old conditions their cattle
enjoyed freo range, which will not bo
tho case under the coming regime
In tho beginning tho reservation was
of considerably greater extent tbau it
now is. At present it is about 70 miles
in length by 80 or 40 miles wido. It
contains 724,808 acres and supports
3,000 Indians. Under tho last treaty,
which has beeu ratified by congress,
each head of an Indian family has taken a quarter sect ion, or 100 acres, each
single person over J 8, 80 acres, each' or-
phau under 18,80 and all other children
40 acres each. Theso tracts huvo been
scleeted at will by tho Indians themselves, and they have generally taken
up plots ou tho rivers nnd streams whero
water for stock and irrigation cun Im
hod. Their allotments tnko np 182,284
acres, leaving 644,074 acres for tho
whites, and for which tho tribo is to receive $!) uu acre. Ah soon as tho llrst
installment of $030,222 is paid by tho
government the reservation will be
thrown open.
Somo notion of tho fertility of tho
tract upon which somo thousands of settlers aro to find homes may be hnd from
tho fact that tho Palouso region, similur,
but if anything inferior to tho reservation, is tho greatest wheat growing section of the west. For 100 mile* it is ono
great wheutlleld, aud tho yield runs
from 85 to 140 bushols nu aero, the average boing from 47 to 05. It is not uncommon to seo 250,000 bushels of Palouso wheat awaiting shipment. Wheat
Ib not its only product, however. Tlie
Palouso region is cnpnblo of raising any
product of the temperate zone, ns was
shown by a farmer at a recent agricultural fair who exhibited 101) varietios

to a publisher DuviB had tlie sung published, and it was such a groat success
thut he decided to make song writing
bis lifo work. With ouiiiincndiihlo pluck
ho procured work as a choro boy lu a
Cbicugo musical college and worked his
way through the Institution, devoting
throo years to bard Btndy.
About this timo ho fell In love with
a pretty octoroon girl of Cinolnnati,
Miss Lottie 11. Stark, who gavo him the
inspiration fur ono of his most successful songs in o vory prosaio maimer. Sbe
sent him a pair of suspenders npon
which was embroidered n good likeness
of a lighthouse und a ship. Davis naturally admired tho suspenders and looked
at them so long aud earnestly that be
concluded to writo n sung about a lighthouse and a ship. Tho result was "The
Lighthouse by the Sea," a song that
won wido popularity a fow years age
aud was played by street bands aud
bnnd organs from oue end ot the country to the other.
DaviB married the pretty octoroon In
1886, and she has been of great assistance to him in his musical work. They
llvo in Now York, nud Davis has already
written about 500 songs, a number of
which hnvo been great successes. One
odd thing abont tho business is thai
when a sung bceuines popular it Is soon
of uo vuluc. A gieut mnny copies are
sold at first, but when tlio public tires
of it tho sale ceases abruptly. One of
Davis' best productions, "On Board the

prominent sung writers in tlio country.

Indefinite term. It might be thick
or thin according to the umount of
milk taken off with it, and to avoid
confusion it was now the custom, to
employ the tprm ''butter-fat" as
being more exact. In respect to
style of churn therp was no material difference in results, but some
were easier to operate than others
and for this reason he preferred
thp barrel churn. It should not
take longer than, say, thirty minutes to churn butter. If a longer
time is required, it is because the
cream is too cool, a condition easily
rectified by the addition of a little
hot water. There was no definite
temperature for churning, as conditions would vary it, but it might
be placed at 50 to 70 degrees.
liy this time Mr. Marker had
finished churning, and as the butter was being worked Mr, Ruddick
continued his lecture. The butter
when finished was made into square
blocks of a pound each, was then
neatly wrapped in parchment paper
with printed label, and then placed
in a pile before the audience.
Mr. Ruddick said parchment paper was a much better wrapping
than cloth, because it protected the
butler. It was impervious, tasteless and odorless.    The B, C. mur-

Belgian official who is said to have
been the only European witness of
the trial and execution by hanging
}f Stokes, the English trader who
was executed by order of Captain
Lothaire, Belgian commander at
Lindi, Congo Free State. Michaux
is quoted as saying that, on January 15th of the present year, Stokes
waa brought before the alleged
court martial, Capt. Lothaire composing tho entire court, and he and
the doctor being the only whites
present. The only witnesses were
a few Arabs, who stated they had
purchased rtllcs from Stokes. The
trial lasted between one and two
hours, after which Lothaire announced that Stokes was sentenced
to death, and that the sentence
would be executed the following
day. Continuing, Dr, Michaux is
quoted as saying : "All my intercessions were futile. Lothaire refused to grant even a few days' reprieve. At five o'clock next morning a servant called and informed
me that Stokes wus dead. I rose
hurriedly, thinking Stokes hud
been stricken by apoplexy or had

to find a galloWB and new made
