Tiik Manitoba dairy instructor
who was recently investigating the
butter market of this Province, has
been lecturing at Brandon, Man.
Amongst other things, he stated
that what the Manitoba creameries
had to figure on was to lay down in

of butter at a price Dint would permit of its being retailed at 25 cents
per pound. He thinks this can bo
done with a satisfactory profit to
the producers. As regards cheese,
he considers the market limited,
and mentions six car-loads a year
as about the extent of it.

"I don't think anything you could say

coldly, und without another glanceor word
she went up thu stairs.
And the cause of all this was a little incident t hat had happened tlie night before
—a mere trifle, as it seemed to Hurry, but
something infinitely more to Grace Leslie.
Ever since tlie girl had been a timid
freshman nud Harry a sophomore lu tlie
great university of M the two had known
each other, und iu these lust months thero
bud crept into their friendship something
which wus making it a very different thing
from the boy und girl acquaintance of
former times.
Hut, the day before our story opens Harry
bad seen Grace on tbe campus and at parting said;
"Don't go out tonight. I'm coming up
to try thoso songs,"
And the girl had nodded assent, with the
laughing words:
"Well, don't forget. I'll never forgive
you If yon do."
Tlie evening came, but no Harry, Grace

soke of trying thu songs with him, but the
hours wore away, and be did not come.

"So lie cares more forsoino fun with a lot

thu proud look iu tlie girl's face boded no
good for the unfortunate lover.
Harry had tried to explain that be had
been carried away by I hceni luisiasin of tbu
moment when the plan was llrst proposed,
but Grace would bear nothing.
Ho it happened that the young man went
home that night, with u little auger as well
as pain lu Ids heart. Hut though he tried
Ids best, to nourish thu former, though ho
called Grace bard, unforgiving aud unreasonable, yet In spite of himself n very humble
letter found its way to tlie girl some weeks

There was a softened look in theglrl'sfaco

started off with a most important air and a
note lightly clasped In bis chubby fingers.
Hut owing to a chance of meeting with
some other small buys nnd tlie game of marbles which at once ensued Harry King never
received it, and so he knew nothing of tha
one line the note contained:
Como up tonight. GnAOB.

come. The snow bad fallen heavily for several days, and Tommy rushed In one afternoon with eyes big and round.

There was a moment's panic, and Grace,

"My darling, are you hurt?"
Grace did not answer, but her face was

A protest against tbo denudation of

by tho agricultural department at Washington ou the'uso of metal railroad ties
and preservative processes and metal tie

about 30 per cent of tho railroad mile-
ago of tho world, outside of the United
States und Canada, is laid on metal. In
tho Uuito.1 States little practical progress in motnl ties is roported. The pro-
purtiun of track laid with metal ties to

The tolegrnph sorvico of Groat Britain
is undoubtedly quicker, more reliable
aud cheaper than that of tbe United
States. I make tliis statement after
proper allowotioo of the differences in
distances. It costs 13), cents for 13
words and 1 cent for every additional
word. Tliis for Great Britain and Ireland—u uniform rate
It works'ndmirnbly, as nearly all tbe
poHtulllccs nro also tolegrnph offices. Ah
a rule, the people aro civil and obliging,
and the dolivory of messages moro
prompt than with us.
Thoso pustofllous, which Include, as a

ooso in Now Vork.
Another groat ndvnntnga of the British xyHtoin in thnt thoro is no suoh thing

Again, if you writo to any ono and

At ono of the big olty dinners a few

The incrcaso In 25 years of message,
alone from 0,500,000, when three private companies controlled tho business,
to 70,000,000 messages in 1894, tells it,
own story. Tbat the number of offices
bos inoreosed threefold, now numbering
9,000, and the miles of wire have increased from 60,000 to 800,000—sorely
this indicates that the publio are well
and cheaply served.
Financially tbe telegraph department
Is today paying expenses, but not the interest on the money invested. It ia
olaimed, however, that Ihe division of
expenses between the postoffloe branch
and the telegraph branch was of suoh
an artificial character that the two services should be looked at together financially. This wonld show a net annual
surplus of frum (18,750,000 to$15,000,-
000—a very handsome addition to the
public revenues.

Whon ho wns chosen president of Columbia, ho wns tho youngest ehlof oxeoutlvo of

Ho wns born tn 1H50. nnd his father wns

Foul breath is a
discourager of affection. It is always an indication
of poor health —
had digestion. To
had digestion is
traceable almost alt
human ills. It is
the starting point
of many very serious maladies,
Upon tlie healthy
action of the diges-
_ tive organs,  the
blood depends for its richness and purity.
If digestion stops, poisonous matter accumulates and is forced into the blood
—there is no place else for it to go.
The bad breath is a danger signal.
Look out for it t If you have it, or
any other symptom of indigestion,
take a bottle or two of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. It will
atraighten out the trouble, make your

Soma Odd Phases or Social tUst In Northern Michigan.
Many curious customs are in vogue
among the foreign population of northern Michigan, especially iu social matters. When a French conplo got mar*
ried, a carriage or a sleigh ride is inevitable, aecording to the season of tho
year. The couples are not packed together in one wagon or sleigh, bnt each
fellow and bis girl have an individual
rig, the bride and groom taking tbe lead
and the others following like a funeral
procession, bnt there is nothing funereal
about It, especially the pace set After
ihe procession has been riding for hoars,
* dance ends the festivities.
The Polanders have a curious wedding custom that is very ingenious as a
monoy getter, and takes the place of
wedding presents. After tbe wedding
feast follows a dance that sometimes
lasts 13 to 14 hours, and even longer.
The obief honor li to dance with the
bride, and this Is decided in a curious
manner. The mother of tbe bride takes
ber place in one corner with a plate in
ber lap, which she takes very good core
shall be built after tbe plan of an eating house coffee cup. The gallant who
wants to dance with the bride, and all
are in honor bound to do so at least
once, must pull ont a piece of silver aud
endeavor to chip or break the plate by
throwing their money upon it, and only
those who snooeed in chipping or breaking the plate are allowed tho coveted
honor. Let those who think it easy to
break an ironstone plate try it Few
suceoed In doing lt for lets than 60
cents, and lt is not an unusual thing for
tbe bride's money to amount np to |7B
or $100, even where the crowd Is apparently as poor as a church mouse, and
lt may go oven higborwhen tho bride is
pretty and popular. All the money goes
to the bride, and in a backwoods country 160 to $75 will start a happy couple
nicely In housekeeping.—Detroit Free
A Japanee* Test For tha Aspiring Bride.
In Japan it appears that one factor
entering Into tho ebolco of a daughter-
in-law is her skill In raising silkworms.
There Is more to this than appears on
tbe surfoeoof the statement, for lt seems
that the thread spun by a silkworm Is
tegular and even in proportion as the
worm has been regularly and carefully
fed. The prospective mother-in-law
carefully and minutely examines the
garments of the aspiring bride, judging
of her qual ill cations by their condition.
This seems even more absurd than tbe
woman who said her son should never
marry a woman who could not keep her

Somo ono has said of Soth Low that his
success Is tho result of a combination of
luck, pluck and brains. Lucky ho certainly was in his blrtb, for his father
transmitted to tho son not only money, but
a sound mental, moral and physical constitution. Plucky ho has boon, for ho has
never hesitated in the slightest to battle
with oil his might against what he thinks
to be wrong and for what he thinks to be
right, and if ho were not a brainy man he
surely would not have been able, with all
his luck and pluok, to do what he has dono
in business, in politics and In the Held of
The selection of Mr. Low as Columbia's
president five years ngo was somewhat of
a departure from the ordinary course In
making choice of the head of a great educational institution. He hod always been
understood to be a man of culture and of
wide Information, but he had nover been
regarded as a scholar or a student in the
strict accoptanco of these terms. Ho hod
rather been looked upon chiefly as a business man, a man of affairs, who, In addition to his exceptional executive ability,
possessed political genius of no ordinary
sort, and whon he wns elected mayor of
Brooklyn It was confidently predicted by
bis friends ond feared by his enemies that
ho would bo tho next governor of tho Empire Stato. Thoro Is reason to believe that
ho, too, thought that sequel a not unlikely
one, but In 1888, when, as Is claimed by
bis principal supporters, bo might bavo
secured tho Republican nomination for tho
office of Mew York's ohlef magistrate, he
declared, on tho ground that bo did not
agree with tho party's notional platform,
that he could accept no such nomination.
For a couplo of years aftor that ho was
comparatively lost sight of, but slnco his
election as president of Columbia be has
boon vory much In ovldonco, and his performance of tho duties bo then assumed
has more than satisfied the authorities of
tbo college that they chose wisely in calling a thorough man of affairs to tho place.
When President Low ossumod the chair,
be announced that In future ho should do-
vote himself heart and soul and without
reservation to the conduct of Columbia's
affairs. Ono does pot need to be woll informed to understand that perfect fulfillment of the duties Involved would require
most of the time and energy of any man,
no matter how liberally endowed with
mental ability or what is known as genius
for hard work. In tho main President Low
has carried out his expressed Intention,
Society has seen littlo of him. To the publio nt large ho has not ofton been visible,
and he kept out of politics until the opening of last fall's campaign for tho purification of New York's mun Iclpal government.
Thon be was made a member of tbe committee of seventy, and as suoh did excel lout
sen-ice. Thero was some talk about making htm thi* reform candidate for mayor,
but be frowned It down, although during
tbe campaign ho devoted much time to the
furtherance of the election of Mayor
Personally Soth Low is a pleasant man
to moot. Ho Is of medium height, rather
stout, with sincere dark eyes and dark
thlok hair and mustache. His features
are not regular, but rather Inclined to
what may bo termed tho aggrosslve type,
tho contour of his faco boing such as at first
to suggest that ho might Iw somewhat un-
{ilcAsantly so. Ho Is, however, an excel-
ontly poised man, and whilo ho can undoubtedly mako himself extremely unpleasant to ono who deserves unpleasant
treatment his aggressiveness Is of tho sort
that men generally applaud. His address
Is winning. On the platform ho speaks In
a forcible, convincing and earnest manner.
He has not the torrentllko vocabulary of
Bourke Cookran, tho cold and classic eloquence that was Rosooe Conkllng's, the
fiery Intensity that was James O. Blaine's
or tho peculiar charm of Colonel Bob In-
gersoll, but he always knows what be
wishes to express whon he speaks, and he
always expresses tt tn a fashion that Is
simple, direct end extremely lucid without
In any sense being dull or common place.
As an educator ho Is an advocate of tho
methods of today. It Is not his notion that
a young man may properly be fitted for a
successful life by loading his mind up with
certain kinds of information without reference to any special bent tbe young man
may possess. His plan Is to discover, so
far as is possible for a teacher to do so,
what Is tho young man's bent, and then
furnish bim with the training and Information that will best onable bim to do
himself full justice in the battle of life
after leaving the praelnotaof thennllags

In 11 former Issue of tills journal
attention was dirooled to tliu greedy
nnd unwise policy of tlie salmon
dinners in operating their canneries
almost entirely with Chinese labor.
II was shown that by the method
.1 large amount of deserving white
labor, tbe employment of whioh
Would be a general benefit, was
forced to idleness, while a horde of
Chinamen, obnoxious aliens, was
fostered, so as not only to practically monopolize the canning labor
but to be thereby assisted in com
peting with white labor in other
lines, more especially in the production of roots and vegetables,
Without the large annual earnings
from the canneries the Chinese
colony in this Province would soon
dwindle away ; with this regular
source of Supply, there is nothing
to binder it prospering and eventually driving white men off tbe produce market. Looking ahead,
there is reason to fear that the evil
will entrench itself, for if only
Chinamen arc to be trained to the
work of the canneries, a good part
of which is skilled, it follows that
white men will be barred permanently, and the greater the increase
in the canning industry of fish,
meats, fruits and vegetables, the
stronger will be the Chinese monopoly of cannery work. This is a
Very grave matter, when it is reJ
nienibered that the Chinese have
not, nor do not profess to have, the
smallest patriotic interest in the
Welfare of the nation. They are
aliens whose settled policy it is to
remain aliens, and whose prosperity is of a good deal more benefit
to China than it is tn Canada.
Tiik Dominion Parliament was
prorogued on .Monday last. The
session was an important one, not
So much in regard to tlie legislation
actually passed as in respect to the
Issues introduced. Not least of
these was the Manitoba school
question, and although that remains undecided, there is undoubtedly sound statesmanship in the
delay, for while it is certain that
any decision of the case within
reach during the late session would
have been resented in one quarter
Or the other, there is a prospect of
the matter being adjusted during
(lie recess in a way fairly acceptable tn all parties; and that by the
Province having greatest Interest
in the issue. In any eventj there
Will be a breathing spell to allow
bf the calm consideration of the
grave consequences that hedge the
question round.

British Politics.
London, July 20.—Many American politicians hero are deeply interested and surprised at the Eng-
lisb elections and the way tbe public and papers take tbo news. Thoy
are astonished at seeing laborers
driven to the polls in elegant equip-
pages, with a coachman and footman in livery, and tbey have been
amazed at the brutality displayed
by English crowds at different
places. For instance, as Lord and
Lady Moiintnioi'ris were entering
their carriage at Mile End Road,
after tlie declaration of the.poll, a
man rushed forward, and calling
out, "She's the one that's done il,"
si ruck Lady Mounlniorris in tlie
face with his list, knocking her
down. So great was the force of
the blow that ber ladyship remained unconscious for some time.
The new Parliament will have a
clear Tory majority ovor all groups,
including tbe Liberal-Unionists.
Things voted down and out hero
aro sumptuary theories, trade union
politics, and socialistic experimentation. Things postponed from
present consideration are Home
llule, Disestablishment of the
Welsh Church, and abolition or
alteration of the House of Lords.
Alatters brought to the front are reform in poor lawB, a policy of large
rather than thin local liberty for
Ireland, vigorous colonial development, and oventually bi-mettalism.
The latter, however, favor the international use of silver on its value
in gold.
The leaders of both parties have
given assurance that no change
need be expected in the unaffected
friendship of Great Britain toward
the Government and people of the
United .States, especially as the latter, it is added, has ceased to bo a
recruiting ground for the political
parties of Great Britain.
The Times publishes a letter explaining the defeat of Mr. Richard
L. Everett, who has represented
South East Suffolk in the Liberal
interest for several years in Parliament. Mr. Everett introduced a
bill in February last to have Great
Britain appoint delegates to a
Monetary Conference, and it was
principally owing to this action
that Senator Walcott, Colorado,
passed a resolution by which the
States appointed delegates to the
conference According to the story
of the Tinies, Mr. Everett's bi-mettalism was not the cause of his defeat, but it was brought about by
the fact that he had advocated the
passage of a local veto measure.
Some time ago, Hon. Col. Baker
issued a pamphlet treating of the I
Kootenay mines. The New Denver
Ledger) evidently doesn't think
very highly of the talents of the
Hon. Minister of Mines in
that direction. It says: "Some
time ago, Colonel Baker, Minister of Mines, visited West Kootenay,
and, on his return to Victoria,
published an account of his trip in
the Government organ of that city.
Since then the interview has been
issued from the Colonist presses in
pamphlet form, and distributed
throughout the district. This in
itself is commendable on the Colonel's parti but the subject matter
of the pamphlet is so crude that it
is certain to bring ridicule upon
our esteemed warrior. As an interview it could pass, but when it
is inflicted upon the district as a
pamphlet) purporting to describe
otlr vast mineral resources, then it
stretches the point too far. Colonel
Baker hud his lesson well prepared,
and his technical terms looked
learned, and no doubt, deeply mystified his Interviewer. One would
judge from the rfiiort that the
mining resources bf the district
consisted of the I'oormanj Blue
Bell, Slocitn Starr, Eureka, Alaino,
Idaho, and War Eagle mine's. No
mention Is made of the camps at
Toad Mouhtain, Airieworthj North

Cariboo Creek, Lardeau, Dllncan,
Illecillcwaet, etc. Ptierile ih the
extreme, and devoid uf much Useful knowledge—beyond the fact
that Col. Baker had a nice holiday
jaunt through West Kootenay—
Ihe report will prove of mighty
little use in attracting capital to
develop our inexhaustible mineral

The Holmes' Murders,
Chicago, J uly 22.—It is the intention of tho Chicago police to make
every effort to have II. II. Holmes,
the insurance swindler, brought
hero to answer to the chargo of
having murdered the Williams
sisters. The local officers are convinced that the murder of tlio Williams girls was first committed by
Holmes, and tbey argue, in consequence, that he should stand trial
for it first. They claim to he able
to produce evidence that he did
murder the sisters, It hasdevelop-
od that the substance upon which
the first report of the finding of the
bones of Minnie Williams was
hinged was in tlio hands of Detective
drier, of Philadelphia, it is said
be visited Chicago two weeks ago
and loft, taking with him positive
proof that the body had been burned in the stove in Holmes' ollice.
It was learned yesterday that Detective Grior would como to Chicago after be completes his search for the ro-
mains of Howard Pietzel in Detroit,
and will co-operato with the Chicago officers in whatever iB done
Detroit, Mich., July 22.—Detective Grier, of Philadelphia! is in
the city looking for tbe body of
Howard Pietzel. Ho holds that
the boy was murdered in Detroit.
He has several clews,
Indianapolis, Ind., July 22.—
Mrs. Holmes, wife of the accused
murderer and insurance swindler,
left here for Philadelphia yesterday,
at the instance of the prosecuting
attorney of that city. Airs. Holmes
herself would not talk, but her
most intimate friend, to whom she
confided hor purposes, says Mrs.
Holmes has forsaken hor husband.
It is also told by Mrs. Holmes that
the assertion of Holmes that he
was not in Toronto, but absent with
bis wife when the Pietzel children
disappeared is not true ; that whenever Holmes was at the time, he
was not with Mrs. Holmes. Moreover, Mrs. Holmes says she was
with Holmes in Chicago at the
time Miss Williams disappeared.
This intimate of Mrs Holmes believes she will tell all she knows
about her husband) and be a Strong
witness in prosecuting him.
Chicago, July 23,—H. H. Holmes
has been charged with murder in
the city of Chicago, and to;day a
warrant for his arrest oh that
charge Was sworn out by A Minier,
nephew of Julia L. Conner, of Muscatine, Iowa. Holmes will be
charged with having murdered Mrs.
Conner Borne time between the first
of August and the first of November, 1.892; The warrant will be
placed in the hands of Inspector
Fitzpatrick by Mr. Minier, and
will be acted upon the instant that
Holmes is freed from the charges
pending against him in Philadelphia. That Mrs. J. L: Conner
is dead is certain. Holmes yesterday, admitted the woman was no
more, but, as usual, tried to shift
the blame on someone else. Almost equally certain is it that Mrs.
Conner's daughter Gertrude, is not
in the land Of the living: Holmes
says he does not know what has
become of her. The lact that
Holmes admits Mrs. Conner's death
is not known to the authorities in
Philadelphia. He made the admission yesterday to a man, who
with District Attorney Graham,
was closeted with him in Moyames-
ing penitentiary. This is his statement : "Mrs. Conner got into
trouble, and a Chicagb doctor performed an operation: The job was
a bundling one, and the woman
died." This is the first light shed
on the case since Mrs. Connor disappeared, in 1892.
Chicago, July 83.—Bones and
articles of clothing were turned up
in the basement Of Holmes' house
to-day. Some Of them werfe from
the butcher's shdp but others of thb

One of the deck bands, George Forrest, ordered All Soon, the second
cook, during dinner time, to bring
in tlio dinner of another deckhand
who bad boon dotaiued by duty on
deck. Ah Soon roplied with a very
offensive epithet, but brought in
tlio food, when Forrest asked him
what bo said. Tlie Chinaman repeated the ugly words, and Forrest
rising from the table, told him not
to talk to him in that way. Ah
Soon mado a rush for Forrest, and
grabbed him, but tlio deckhand
easily shook off the Celestial, and
slapped bis faco. Thon Ah Soon
picked up a heavy iron bolt and
struck Forest over the arm wilh it,
inflicting a nasty bruise. Forrest
wrested the bolt away from him,
whereupon tbo Chinamen ran into
tbo pantry and returned with a
big butcher's knife, with which he
made a rush at the deckhand. The
latter evaded the first blow and
closed with his assailant, endeavoring to take tbo knife away from
him, In the struggle, Forrest was
cut in tbo hand, seriously across
the right knee cap, and in the
right thigh. Finally, Ah Soon
was disarmed and handed over to
tho police.
 ,  t .	
A serious riot occurred in the
Britannia cannery at Steveston,
Monday afternoon Tbo bathroom man found fault with the
solderers for putting too much
solder on the cans after testing.
One of the latter, a big Chinaman
named Lem Lock, told tho foreman, in no vory polite language,
that ho know his business without
instructions. The foreman called
to a whitenian named Baxter, and
the moment tbo latter entered the
room the soldorers turned on him
and began to beat him. Several
other wbite employes went to the
rescue, whereupon a Celestial war-
cry was sounded and all the Chinese from the fish house—about
50—rushed into tbe room wilh
their knifes, and made straight for
the whites. The hitter, being unarmed were forced to run for their
lives or be slaughtered. They escaped, and, returning with
assistance, the trouble was put
down. Six of the ringleaders were
promptly arrested.
Johnson, in Up the Niger, describing cannibalism, says that
the King of Nuppe keeps a set of
cannibals in the town of Bidal, to
be used on special occasions as instruments of his vengeance. They
are not particular but devour with
relish any one their King chooses
to give them. Even lepers are
considered very good eating. Indeed the natives seem to stop at
nothing in these matters, for they
even dig up the dead for consumption in some parts. When war is
followed by famine it is thought
by certain tribes to be a great waste
of precious food to bury the dead.
What cannot be eaten is dried in
the sun and stored, even the bones
being used to make soup. If one
could get accustomed to the idea,
one could admire the thrft displayed. Apart from human flesh the
Africans do not seem te have any
good natural dish. Ants are eaten
a good deal, but they do not sound
very tempting, However, some
Europeans consider them good
when once you get accustomed to
the idea. They are supposed to
taste like "grains of rice fried in
delicious fresri oil." These ants
are served up in various ways;
they can be roasted plain or made
into paste, or oil can be made of
them ; they can also be eaten raw
like oysters.

Winnipeg, July 23—The Lake
Dauphin correspondent of the Tribune writes that five children were
drowned in the lake there a week
ago: The name of the victims is
Beach. The family resided near
the shore of Lake Dauphin, where
they have a claim, which was taken
up a year or two ago. They were
in rather poor circumstances; and
were struggling for a livelihood.
On Sunday, the children, five in
number, ranging in age from 15 to
4 years, went down to the lake
shore to have a bath, as the day
was very warm. After playing
about tlie shore for a time, the
children entered nn old bont| which
hud been lying on tlie bank for
many days, and which was in a
very unseaworthy condition. They
pushed off from shore, and the
wind, which was blowing a stiff
breeze, swept the rickety craft out
into the lake. The boat was tossed
about, and, filling rapidly with
water, the children were soon struggling with the waves. It is said
that the eldest boy did his best to
savo his little sister, ond keep her
on the boat as long as he could,
but the waves Soon overpowered
the entire group and thoy sank out
of sight. There was but one girl;
thO other four being boys. The
neighbors, on hearing of the sad
event, collected, and havo been
Wbrking night and day to try and
recover the bodies. The water is

The British market being flooded
with German prison made goods is
causing great trouble in the old
land. These goods would not be
made at all Were the [Boris of England not frfee. But Germany uses
the market of Free Trade England
as a help to her prisons. The
situation is an interesting study
for all who favor free Imports, but
to men who have to compete
with such goods it is a very depressing experience.
