To Ail Concerned.  TO -DREDGE GOLD ON  '   DIXIE,CREEL  -  Q  4  Gold  is  Very  Coarse���Two  More Dredges' to be Used  Next-Year.  '1  Dixie Cieek, located about,thiny  miles fiom Atlin", has been thor-  oughly prospected by .parties interested in th"e British-America Dredging Co.. The^fesults secured led  Mr W. J. Robinson, one of the promoters of the company, to state this  morning that he expects there will  sooii be a camp at Dixie larger than  that-now on'Pine Creek.5,  Speaking of the prospects, on  Dixie Creek,'Mr. Robinson stated  that the gold found there is heavy  and coarse, and assays from $18.40  to $19 an ounce.- The B. A. D.'  Co. intends later on to put a large  dredge "on Dixie Cieek, to be oper-  ated from power to he developed in  TJixie Valley, where there is plenty  of water fon-the purpose. .  The. Dredge which . the British  Columbia Companyris,.installiug on  Spruce Creek 'is\contraded for on  the understanding'that it will "be  ready for operation by October 1st.  -At^a recent'meeting of the beard of  directors ot^iie British Columbia  Company ut vvvas decided thatall  supplies and matenaltor the dredge  shalfbe purchased in* British Columbia, prices and quality being  equal to those of other, supply cen-  tcres on the coast.  The directors of'"the British-  America Company expect to place  in opeiation on its properties next  year two more dredges similar to  the one now running on Pine  Cieek. The estimated cost of these  two dredges is $50o;ooo. It is also^  n.tended to increase the .capacity  of the power plant on the same  cieek. The Switzer-Robinson Corporation and J. H. Brownlee have  started up the hydraulic plant they  last summer placed on Otter Creek  at a cost of $60,000, and excellent  returns are reported.���The Vancouver Daily Province.  A question ot vital importance to  every one in this district will be  brought up at the~next monthly  mseting of the Board of Trade, viz :  "What steps should be taken to get  a supply oi pure water for cthe  town.'' The time is not far distant,  in lact, is almost at hand, when  Atlin Lake will be used as a dumping ground, which will render the  already none too pure water totally  unlit for domestic use.  Do not fail to attend the next  meeting, whether a member of the  Board or not. It is every citizen's  bouudeu duty to aid protecting the  public health. The meeting will be  held at the Court House on Thuis-  day, August nth, at 8 p. m.  A. C. Hirschfeld, President.  Miss Turner, Caribou, is Dead.  Miss Bertha Turner, of Caribou,  died at the home of her parents last  Saturday, after a lingering illness,  at the age of twenty-six years.  Miss Turner was the daughter of  John Turner, the Canadian customs officer at Caribou, and was  beloved by all who knew her. She  was a trained nurse, and up to  about two years ago she was employed at Vancouver, B. C, at her  profession. The inteiment was at  Whitehorse on Monday.  Items of Interest.

In addition,  the government will pay the indemnity of $150,000 in Mexican  money to the dead man's mother.  Mining: Notes.  (  A flat piece of solid gold, weighing 21 ounces, 16 pennyweights,  was found by Gus Anderson on hU  claim ou^Boulder Creek, last week.  it is" reported that a big quartz  deal has been consummated this  week on Taku Aarni.  One reason men get over the habit  of saving mone) is that when they  do they lose it in investment instead  of having the fun of ^peudiug it.  About Jewelry.  Jules Eggert's jewelry store is a  credit to Atlin,���in fact the fittinga  are equal to anything seeu in large  cities. Mr. Markiss has just completed a splendid solid oak show  case, which for workmanship cannot be beat, and was made specially  to the order of Mr. Eggert. A visit  to our local jeweller is a pleasure  for any one who admires finely-  made jewelry, beautiful cut glass,  choice silver-ware and cutlery, to  say nothing of the unique and  novel nugget novelties made out of  our golden product and mauufac-  utred at home.  \t  ~)       J*.��.��    f    -�� ��� ���*-!     ���  '!-(.    .V  IHIHlWHymBIWIU��MMJIWMMI��Uil] ���j^tiyn:tl^^ferlrt��iMnqi**a^j^ *^..ftt^m.&*tf*.fc2t^*l^S*Irf��  III  w  About the  ....

Pieplant Catsup.���To two quarts of  chopped pieplant add two pounds of  brown sugar, a tcacupful of vinegar  (not too strong), a teaspoonful each  of cinnamon, allspice and salt and  pepper. Cook till reduced to onc-  hnll,  then boil and seal.  Orango Salad.���Fruit salads arc  very much the fad at present und one  of the simplest is an orango salad.  Peel three oranges and take off all  the white skin. Separate in sections and cut off the transparent  skin, separating them, after pulling it  loose. I/ay on leaves from the  head of lettuce and pour over all a  French dressing or a mayonnaise.  Raised Cake.���Cream a large cup  of sugar with one half cup of butter  and add a beaten egg. Mix with  one pint of light bread dough and^ a  level teaspoonful of baking powder.  Beat with the hand until soft and  white. Flour a cup of stoned raisins  and shredded citron, and stir in.  Bake,in a deep cake tin for one hour  in a slow oven. Best when a couple  of  days old.  Snow     Pyramids.���Boat  tho  whites  of .half a dozen eggs to a stiff froth;  add a tcacupful^ of currant jelly,  and  , whip   . all   together;  fill  saucers  half  .full of cream, dropping in tho   center  of  each  a  tablespoonful  of  the  "egg  and jelly in the shape ^of*a,pyramid.  Apple  Snow.'���Take  apples  of  clear  white   "pulp, pare, core, and quarter,  put  with the    necessary  quantity" of  water 'over a hot Are,  and cook    as  <'rapidly as possible.      Pass     through  a sieve,  and set in the coldest place  you can find,      While  they  are cooling, whip the whites of two or three  ,   eggs to a stiff froth,  and add   some  powdered  sugar.    .When    the , apple  has become quite cold, whip tho egg  into'it, and keep it in a cold ^placo  until   time    for     serving.      Whipped  cream may bo ser\od with it if desired.  Wino'or Lemon Jelly.���Take half a  packago of gelatine, a gill and a  half of cold water; soak for two  hours; add one teacupful and a third  of sugar; and one pint of boiling water; stir all together; add the 'juice  of 'two lemons, 'or one glassful of  wine; strain through a' cloth and put  ��� in mold. <,"  Iceland Moss Jelly���Into one quart  of - water put about three-fourths of  an ounco of moss, and simmer it  down to half a pint; add fine sugar  and    a little   lemon     juice. One-  fourth of an ounce of isinglass will  improve it. The moss' should first  bo steeped in cold water for an hour  or two.  Calf's Foot Jelly.���Put a couple of  calf's feet in three quarts of water  and let boil for five hours, or until  about half wasted, keeping simmering during the time. Run the liquor through a hair sieve and let it  stand until firm, remove tho oil and  fat from tho surface. Take 'a ' tea-  cupful of water, two wineglassfuls  of .sherry wine, the juice of half a  dov.en lemons and the rind of  half a pound of white sugar,  mix the whole until tho sugar melts,  then add the jelly; place on the fire  in a porcelain kettle, and keep stirring until it comes to the boiling  point. Pass it twice through a jelly bag, and put in molds.  Iho same time, while bringing out  the coloration borax in no way injures flavors, ' but rather increases  them. It is the secret of the admirable green color and perfect flavor of peas as served up by French  cooks. Apart from its uses in the  kitchen, borax is an efficient, cheap,  and easily obtainable antiseptic. In  small and tasteless , proportion it  will keep milk and butter from turning sour, and rancid. Mixed with  sugar and rubbed into a ham when  the latter is being cured it imparts  a fino^ flavor and renders it safe  against the ravages of the "bacon  fly." Muslin calico, and flimsy cotton goods dipped into a strong solution of borax become practically fireproof. Put into starch it prevents  tne iron from singing and forms tho  "china" glazo so much sought after  by laundresses. Ladies who, value  a fine complexion may bo interested  to hear that borax is as powerul a  skin tonic as arsenic without 'the lat-  ter's poisonous qualities. A table-  spoonful of ordinary powdered borax  to " a washing-basin full of water  used every day will, in most cases  produce a clear and fine colored skin  in tho course of a few weeks. ' A  much advertised skin tonic somo  week ago, which received many testimonials from persons in high places, was nothing but a medium solution of borax in distilled water  with a little attar of rose glycerine,  and rectified spirits of wine.  MANY USES   OF BORAX.  Borax, ' or,  to give it its chemical  name,  biborato of soda, may bo used  in  tho household  as a substitute for  ordinary    soda    under  nearly    every  HINTS   TO   HOUSJEKEEPEUS.  It is said that if one-third of 'stewed pieplant bo added to any canned  sweet fruit, like raspberries, pears  and huckleberries, the flavor will bo  much enhanced,., ' ,  If pieplant . is cut with a sharp  knife there will be no "strings" on  tho pieces. '"      ,      , ��  ' Toast buttered while very hot digests more slowly than that buttered while just warm enough to melt  tho butter, .while , that buttered and  .then set in the oven is very unhygienic. For sick people, toast should  always bo served dry, with butter  on a separate plate.  l It is asserted that the very painful burns caused by carbolic acid can  be quickly relieved and blisters pro-  vented by the prompt use of iodine.  If a stamp has lost " its sticking  qualities and there happens to be no  mucilage at hand, moisten the gummed edge of an envelope, rub the  stamp over it and put it ,in place.'  It will take up enough of the gum to  make it stay put."  1 If by mistake you got a soup too  salt add'a few slices of raw, potato  and cook a few minutes longer. The  potatoes will ) take up the surplus  salt. ��� ���  Fruit Glace���Put the' fruit on  hooks of fine wire, dip into sugar at  the sixth degree, and hang where  nothing will touch until dry.  A Pretty Dish.���Scoop out the  pulp from somo oranges, fill the hollowed skins with wine jelly. Pile  whipped cream on top. The oranges  may be used for cake, pudding, etc.  How to Whip Cream���Too rich  cream, which" will hardly pour, will  ice cold, and whilo whipping stand  tho bowl in a pan of ice water. Skim  off the froth as it rises, and continue  till all tho cream is whipped.  To Blanch Almonds.���Shell the nut  and  pour boiling  water over    thorn.  one.   Let them! stand a minuto, then throw  and   into cold  water.      Rub between    tho  hands.   -  To Remove Jellies from Molds.���  Have in a pan enough warm water  to come to top of * the mold, if a  tin mold, set in this ior about half  a minute; if carthorn, long, enough  for tho heat to pass through. Wipe  tho mold,-place over it the hish into  which tho jelly is to be turned, and  turn both simultaneously. Rcmovo  thn mold gently.  How to Boil  Sugar.���Put  one    cup  PAINFUL RHEUMATISM.  This Trouble is Caused by an Acid  in the Blood, and Can Only- be  Cured Through the  Blood.  Rheumatism is caused by an acid  in the ��� blood. That is a medical  truth every sufferer from this trouble  should bear in mind. Liniments and  outward applications cannot cure  what is rooted in tho blood���tho disease must be1 cured through the  blood. That is the reason rheumatism yields almost like magic to Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. ��� This new  blood conquers tho painful, poison,  sweeps out the aching acid', soothes  tho nerves, loosens the muscles and  banishes rheumatism. Mr. Robert  Morrison,'ono of the best known and  most esteemed residents of Guelph,  Ont., gives striking testimony to tho  truth of the statements made above,  lie snys :���"My trouble came gradually and was pronounced muscular  rheumatism, and was located chiefly  in my neck and shoulders. ,1 can  hardly'tell you how much I suffered.  I was 'confined to my bed for fifteen  months. A1 great many'friends camo  to see mo during that time and I  think I am safe, in saying that most  of them had'very few hopes that I  would got better. I tried a great  many remedies without any lasting  benefit. Then-1 tried Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, and I am thankful to say  that through tho use of these ' pills  and the indefatigable nursing of my  wife I am again on my feet. My nock  ia still somewhat_ stiff, but tho pain  is gone> I am now in my, 79th' year  and I feel that 1 owe much to Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills."

If  taken on a stick it is brittle, it is  tho sixth, suitable for fruit glace.   ' >  ABOUT SALADS.  The food value of the more delicate  raw vegetables as eaten in salad,  aside'from the oil with which they  are dressed, is" almost entirely in the  contained salts and acids dissolved  in thoir ninety to ninety-five por cent  of water. . Salads must be held to  the pleasure-giving foods, -the food  accessories rather than true foods. It  is .well known'how scurvy is induced'  on board ship by tho absence of ' all  kinds: of fruits-or vegetables.' .The"  mixing and the flavoring of the salad  is a curious tiling. . The cooked  mayonnaise 'is preferred by some; the  more simple French dressing hv others, and between are all shades of  practice, and'theory as to the dressing of this succulent dish. Salt,  pepper, and acid, and some form of  oil, are all that arc really essential;  the rest, refined taste points towards'  simplicity.  Granted that one has green salad  tender, crisp, well grown, tho washings is an important part of tho preparation. This should be done in  several waters, tho last to be ice  cold' if possible, then the leaves  should be placed in a basket or towel  and swung to ensure their being well  drained, and if necessary each leaf  wiped as wet leaves cannot be coated  with  oil. i  Tho salad habit once established  does much to promote good health  and cut down tho undue use of meat.  Tho dish is capable of endless variation, with fruit and vegetable and a  change in tho dressing, and is one  that may be served nt any meal.  WHY MILK KEEPS OR SPOILS.  , In an experiment on the relation of  temperature ' to the keeping property  of milk at the Connecticut' Storrs  Station, .the bacteria in milk multiplied fivefold' in twenty-four hours  when, the temperature was 50 degrees'F., and ,750 fold in the same  time when the temperature was 70  degrees. \  'Milk kept at 95 curdled in eighteen  hours, at 70 in forty-eight' hours,  and at 50 in 148 hours. So far as  tho keeping property of milk is concerned, low temperature is considered of >.uorc importance'than cleanliness.  In milk kept at 95, the. species developing most rapidly is the undesir-  ablo one known as Hacillus lactis  aorogones.,  At a temperature of'70, this specie  develops relatively less rapidly in the  majority of cases than Bacillus lactis acidi, which latter is very desirable in bolh cream and cheese ripening- i -    :  Tho bacteria in milk kept at'50, increase slowly, and "'later consist of  very few lactic .organisms, but of  miscellaneous ������ types including many  forms that render the milk unwholesome , ' " ' ' f.  These' bacteria continue to grow  slowly 'day after day, but tho- milk  kcops sweot because the lnctic ' organisms do not'dovolop abundantly.  Such milk in tho course of' time  becomes far morc'"unwholcsome than  sour milk, sinco" it is filled with organisms' that" tend to produco jmtrc-  f action. '  Although' the temperature of 50 degrees is to bo emphatically recommended to the dairyman for tho purpose of keeping his milk sweot and  in proper condition for market, ho  must especially guard against "the  feeling that milk which is several  days old ,is proper for market, even  though it is still sweet and has .riot  curdled. / - "'  Quite the reverse .is the case.' Old  milk is never wholesome, Wen though  it has been kept at a temperature of  50 degrees and still remains sweet  and uncurdled.     "���   ' / '   "  , This very,, considerably ''modifies  somo of our previous ideas concerning milk, for it has been. generally  believed-that, so long as the milk remains "sweet, it is in ,good condition  for use. 'Quito the contrary in1 this  case, if, it has been kept at a temperature of 50 ' degrees, or in, this  vicinity.     "  It is not unlikely that it is this  fact that leads to some of the cases  of ice cream poisoning so common  in  summer. *        ," ,���,<���,  ��� The cream is kept at a low, temperature for several days, until a considerable quantity has accumulated or  a ' demand has come for ice cream,  and when made into ice cream, it is  filled with bacteria in great numbers,  and  of a  suspicious character.

Tho man who made a big hole in  the barn door for the old cat to  come through and 'a smaller hole for  the kitten must have had a kinsman  in tho Englishman who wont fishing  with Capt. Andrew Haggard in the  Lake St. John country, and whose  adventuro is related in "Sporting  Yarns."  The two men, with Indian guides,  were about to shoot a terrific rapid  in two canoes. Captain Haggard,  who could swim, had littlo fear.  Chambers, Iiis companion, who could  not, expected certain doath.  "What shall I do if wo upset?" ho  called.  "Tie the camera under your chin,"  called back his companion. "It's hollow and will make a good life-preserver." ^  He was vastly amused to see Chambers adopt the suggestion, and hang  the camera under his chin. A moment later, however, as they came  into the most dangerous place, Chambers snatched it from his nock again,  and placed. it carefully right side up  in the bottom-of the canoe.  "WKat was the matter with the  llfe-preeerver?" asked: Captain Haggard, ��� when they Had safely descended.  "Why, I Just happened .to think,"  said Chambers, in all innocence,  "that if we upset I should get the'  pictures wet. So I put it'back in  the boat."   ___/&_ .  I believe that greater returns for  the amount invested can be obtained  from grazing any other kind at live  stock writes Mr. T. W. Jones. There  must be sown the right kind of  grasses to get the best results. First  and foremost as a hog pasture is  clover. I keep a plot coming on all  of the time for tho hogs. Do not  wait until one set of clover has perished before sowing another. These  fields need not be very largo if they  arc judiciously managed. The hogs  should have access only to a small  part at a time.  Two years ago I purchased SO hogs  averaging about 90 pounds each, in  Iho early spring. I gave them- access to clover pasture with a slight  mixture of other grasses. September  1 these hogs were weighed, before be-t  ing put'in the feed pen. They had'  gained about 75 pounds ,oich on  grass alone that summer. Stock  hogs being worth 7 cents per pound  that year, it ' will readily be seen  that they made a gain of 55.25 per  head with no feed other than grass.  On the same farm and during   tho  same, period  was  grazed   20  head  of  short      two-year-old    cattle.       They  mado a gain of 300 pounds por head  that  season,   which sold  at  4    cents  per lb.  or a   gain of $12    per head.  Ono hog,   costing about  SG,     gained  about     one-half   as much as a steer  that cost $28.      In other words, ono  hog gained     $2  to  where tho     steer  gained $1.      Some may contend that  those     wcro    exceptional  values     for  stock hogs.      It    was also an exceptionally     good     year    in   the   cattle  trade.     Count tho gains made by tho  hogs even at 4. cents,  and one    will  readily  see  that    the  balance  is     in  favor of the hog.      Taken one    year  with another,  I believo that decidedly greater    gains    will be mado    by  grazing  hogs  than   other  live  stock.  No doubt a littlo grain mixed   with  clover would give bettor results than  those obtained from clover    alone.  Cowpeas and soy beans arc of  great value for fattening hogs. Those  plants afford' feed for swine when  they need a change from clover. Alfalfa ��� may bo fed green or it may be  cured and fed to thorn in the midwinter. Rape also has many friends  among swine raisors, who make  great . claims as/to results obtained  from feeding it. I do not think  there is any crop that will excel ryo  for winter pasture. It should bo  jsown early and given a good start  , before winter    sets in.       Thoro    are  ' CULTURE  OF THE  MANGEL. ���  Of all the foot crops, the mangel-  wurzel or stock beet is, perhaps,, tin  most important, both 'us to feeding  .value and amount of yield per acre.'

Tho groat Galen, one of the "fa-,  thers oi medicine,'-' boldly proclaimed  it to be such ,over eighteen centuries  ago, and modern London^s inclined  to take the same view of the ^natter.-  For modern London, owing to the  fertile brain of an advertising agent  for a halfpenny newspaper, is engaged  in a heated discussion of the question.  Letters from the scene of this wordy  warfare state that all known authorities on tho subject of the "divine  paf-sion" have been dragged into  print. ~, t r  ,  - Accoiding to one well known doctor, Galen, in his .voluminous medical  vtinm^s. cites the first case, on', record where love was treated by a  physician ,as a recognized form of illness." This'treatment was givem 'by  Galon himself in the second century  to a -haughty Roman lady,' wife' of  the parttoian Menippus. All the  leainea medical men of the then fashionable world failed to alleviate her  ailment and gave up her 'case as incurable. Mme. Menippus-then, as a  last lesort, summoned Galen, who  had "recently arrived with a glowing  reputation from the schools, of, Asia  Minor, and he promptly diagnosed the  complaint'as an attack of "lovo sickness." Pylades, a handsome young  knight, 'whom the���_ woman, had scen^  once or twice, but "did not1 know, was  decJaicd to'be the cause of-the disease. The beating of tho patient's  pulso is given by Galen as the �� only  moans he had of judging tho nature  of het affliction. He fails to state,  however, what remedies he recommended other than to'say that by his  "piefcssional discretion he was able  to restore her to a better state of  mind." Ho follows this recital with  a statement that Cleopatra had used  one of his cosmetics and found it excellent, thus furnishirg the first "voluntary patent medicine testimonial"  known to history.  SANCTIONS THEORY.  "Tho theory that love is a disease  has thi�� sanction of venerable antiquity," says the grave London Lancet, which was finally, drawn into tho  disi'ussion. - "Apart'from the Greek  and Rom,an classics, it is^ commonplace of tho seventeenth century. Tho  leainciJ German Gregorius Horstius  published a long thesis in favor of  the contention in ,1011, and 1614  Lnnifandus supported him in a neatly  ertitlef Latin essay on 'The nature  of love and the cures for love madness ' Ten vears later Ferrand in*  Paris printed a book on 'The Malady  of love, or, Erotic Melancholy.'  "The Dutch and Flemish painters of  the la?t half of tho same century  found in 'love sickness' a favorite sub-  fect Some of the paintings of wo-  men sufieiing from this disease are  scientifically accurate portrayals of  the anaemic condition. Of course  none o! these writers nnd painters  luul as yet suspected that there is a  Uirillus of love, though Cupid's arrow, which is as old as mythology,  13 ccrti-.ii/ly antitype."  At ('"'-en in Germany in the sixteenth century, ns one English disputant l'O'iilid out, Horstius and tho  savant�� of Europe engaged in a long  dif-Mitr- upon the nature of love before  a .'urge audience of the nobility and  gentry. Both sides to the discussion  admitted that the affliction was certainly o disease, the only question at  iss,ii'j Lcing the form ,it assumed. Hor-  s-tius maintained that it was purely a  mental disorder, while ono of his opponents showed that magic was not  yet a dead art by stoutly asserting  that it was the result of "poisoning  by lovo philtres and charms." Still  another learned doctor was sure that  love was an illness that greatly resembled indigestion and could be diagnosed by the irregular and heightened boat of the pulse.  HINDUS  AGREE  Before thj Russian-Japanese war  broke out to turn public utti'iition to  f-omc other hirbjcct, a British officer  in India added fresh fuel to the present discussion by writing home a list  of    .symptoms    of     "Jove   sickness"  agieed upon by the ancient Hindu  writers. , These signs were said to  be: "A peculiar sidelong "stare, ji  languid gait, difficult breathing, stoppages of the heart's action, withering  of limbs, cold shivers up and down  the J-.acJ-, fever,' and swoons" All  tho Indian poets-consider the appearance of drops of-perspiration upon the  cheeks and other iparts of the body  as one of the most- dangerous, indicn-  tions of th'e presence of tho malady.  ��� "Jn enc of the old dramas," writes  the officer, "a royal lover is alraid  to takr a birch-bark message in his  hand, lest the perspiration from his  pulrns wash away the message there.  All the cures tried by love sick patients proved ineffective. In tke- drama 'The Bha-vabhuti,' the hero, Mad-  hava, tries snow, moonlight, camphor, lotos roots, pearls and sandal  oil ns remedies, but "without effect,  The 'Hindus were so sure that lov<  w,-is a practically incurable sicknesi  that they permitted a sufferer to da-  almost anything to prevent himsell  from of it."  ONE* OF  CIVILIZATION.  Few English physicians were found  who believed    that love',was  a sickness, although one Londoner said, "V.  it be  a disease it  is  as modern     at  appendicitis,     in    spite of what    th<  ancients have to say upon the     subject."       In support of this claim ha  brings  forward     the  customs "of the  less  developed races of the world to  prove that love in its higher sense is .  really unknown to them.    He points ���  out that among the savage tribes    of  Australia one girl is as good 'as another  in  the  sight  oi  a  wooer,     because they "all look alike" and have  the  same degree ,of 'intelligence..  Tho  Dyaka imprison their young girls for  seven years  in  a cage,  so that- they  may be bleached to ,a light yellow by  the sun and come out with small foot  and hands.     Tho bushmen and     their  wretched women ira .so brutalized b/  the hardships-of their'life that    both  sexes como,   1o  resemble each   other, '  and  love     for   an    individual   ls'not  known.     "Therefore,"  concludes     the  writer,  "if love is a sickness,   it is a  development   of civilisation',   because,  in spite of fairy stories to'tho    contrary, tho savages cannot and do 'not  fall in love' as more refined peoples  do. - Love sickness is'certainly a mental  complaint  in  any event/ and   ta  low  intelligence  cannot  sutler     much  from it."   '    "  _; ��.���   ,   * AFRICAN, BOUNDARIES.  ���in    i       ,  They  Are Being Changed by   the  Mixed   Commission.  Every new edition of African maps  shows sluftings ofithe boundary lines    ,  between European"- possessions. Sometimes the boundary is shown on ono  side  of    a river  or  mountain range,  and in the noxt edition on tho other .*  Side.     If the  boundary  is  a  parallel  or^-a -meridian  it  may  bo-shown  on  the later map so far from its" oarlier*"  position that tlie change is noticeable  even on a map of small scale.  These changes do not moan that the  Doundaries, as described in treaties,  have been altered, but merely that  delimiting commissions m tho course  of more accurate surveys and explorations have disco\eied that our previous knowledge was so far erroneous  that- the stipulated boundaries, could  not accurately be laid on a map.  The report   of  the  Mixed   Commission  on  the  Anglo-German-boundary  in East Africa is a case in point. In  1890 the Germans and British agreed  that the boundary between their possessions should cioss Victoria Nyan/a^  in  one  degree  south latitude and go'  on to  the  Congo  State,  except  that  when     it (  reached   Mount  Mfumbno,  which-   Spekc  had  placed  one  degree  south   of  the   Equator 'on  his    .map, _  it should skirt tho mountain so that "  it might     wholly be  included  in  tho  British domain.  The maps according!v showed 'the  mountain as a Bn'tish summit till it  was disccnerod that it really stands  far to the west in the Congo State,  and under existing treaties could  not possibly belong to Gtcat Britain  It was found later that Mfumbiro  is about sixty miles south ol the latitude Spoke assigned to it, so that,  even -if his longitude had been correct, it would have been a Ge:nuin  instead of a Biitish mountain, and  now come the latest results of thj  Mixed Commission, bringing both  glad and sad news for Great Britain.  The Kngcra River, the largest affluent "of Victoria Nyan7a and the  ultimate source of its waters, has  been assigned on all maps since the  treatv of 1890 to German East Africa, but tho Mixed Commission has  decided that the lower fourth of this  river, from the point where it turns  sharplv east to the lake, is north of  the boundary line; so the only part  of tho river offering excellent facilities for navigation is now proved to  belong to Great Britain.  "But what the British have gained  in the south they have lost in the  west, for th'e boundary surveyors have  found that a long strip that the maps  have included in Uganda is really in  the Congo State. For years we havo  seen the eastern waters of Albert  Edward Nvanza lipping alleged British territory, but now we arc told  that every drop in the lake, belongs  to the Congo domain; and we may  expect further revelations of this  sort until crude surveys are replaced  by the scientific delimitation of all  African  boundaries.

Considerable comment 1ms been  made on 0111 article re Volcanic  Creek, which appealed last vieek,  and there seems   to   be  some inis-  ������ understanding icgaidinjr its pui-  poi t. There is no intention, noi has  there been any intention on our  part, to prevenPbona-fide operators  taking up leases* provided that they  co"inply with the "law, especially in  respect to worlcing the giound  coveied by them.' ' Referring to  Volcanic Cieek, after careful enquiry, it would seem that the protest entered by the mineis was not  directed especially against that  creek, but simply against the  gianting of leases on new creeks.  Volcanic Creek is ceitainly not a  new'cieek, as it was staked and  abandoned several times and has  practically been open for two years,  consequently we'cannot see what  reasonable excuse could be made  for not granting the leases applied  for on _ that creek. 'Nevertheless,  there are plenty of leases now held  and pending, which mav well be  euq'iued ints, especially those actually    covenng    individual    claims  ^wiicie work is still going on.

"Been to tea at the parsons!" exclaimed Jimmy Medway with a prolonged stare of astonishment at the  unmoved face of his elder brother.  "Well, I am���"  "I'1 had 110 idea that Ingleby was  such a good fellow," his brother  said, tranquilly. "I wish I bad  looked him up before."  "What was there to do, Claude?"  Lady1 Gertrude asked,"from the depth  of her chair, with her usual air of  unwilling interest.  "Nothing. There lay the 'charm.  Miss Inglcby is a crack pianist and  can talk. One listens.- Ingleby is  keen on cricket, wants me to set the  village boys on to pKiy���one must, I  suppose "  "Certainly,"      Sir     Arthur   added,  looking    up from his Morning    Post,  "that   kind   of  thing  is  expected     of  , one. And     tho Inglebys  are"    very  good people. You may'rely upon it  that I should never give the living  to a man whom I could" not see at  my table with pleasure.'\  "But;     Claude,  just fancy     Claude  going to tea with the parson,"  continued Jimmy, who, was "sixteen   and  -looked up    to  his  eldest brother  as  ��� a prince of fast men.  "I always said," murmured Lady  Gertrude, suppressing a yawn, "that  Claude would develop into _ a model  squire in time. He will soon be au  . ,fait in top-dressings and short-horns  ���excited by turnips and depressed  by cattle disease. You know the  kind,of man���stout and beefy." ,  "There- is    no    knowing to     what  heights  we may    reach   by dint    of  energy and lofty aspiration," replied  Claude,  looking before    him with   'a  curious littler smile,  "even Jim, now,  Jim  might* beotime fa.  bishop  or    a'  judge. Come,     Jim, you  are    the  last,   and  one  of'us  ought  to  be    in  tho Church." ' ' ']'  All of ai sucden. a light seemed to  flash upon    Jim    and    he began    to  chuckle quietly to ^himself.  "Is Jessie Meade a crack piano  player?" he asked, demurely, ".or is  she-keen on cricket?"^ *  ' Claude looked up ��� with an angry  frown that only hall subdued Jim,  who had passed Jessie at the rectory-  gate  that' afternon. '  "Jessie Meade, what about Jessie  Meade?" asked- Sir Arthur, who had  lost the thread of the conversation  in  his  paper.  "A very quiet well-conducted young'  person," Lady Gertrude remarked,  "I really think her quite a godsend  for poor  dear Ethel.  "I don't know what poor Miss  Meade has done to bo called a young  person," exclaimed Claude with sudden heat.  "Claude is right, my lady," said  his father, "it is very dreadful to be  called a person, especially a' young  person unless one is a young person."  "Hut     what    on    earth     is  Jessie  Well, it's all about' nothing. Stupid  dinner parties," very slow balls. Garden party at Chiswick, royalties gracious and boring.

"How in the  world can I keep Clara in town? If  sho brings her heavy artillery to  bear upon me, what is the good of  all these gradual saps and well-laid  trains?

I cannot be sure 'of- what is right. I  can only try to do what I think is  right���if they would but,"let me! ' If  I could ' see Philip face to face I  might make him-- understand, .poor-  boy; but he is so'Tai- away and letters are so different.

Sho had reached the edge of a hay  field which waar divided from the next  by a tiny wooded gorge, at tho bottom of which gurgled and rippled a  bright, brown thread of a stream,  crossed by "a wooden foot-bridge.  Sho * 'descended' the slope with ' easy  light-foot grace, andi pausing at the  bridge and leaning against'the slight'  hand-rail looked  down,   arrested     by  Meade?"  cried  Jim.   "Isn't a  rough  the fascination of flowing water, into  farmer's daughter a young person?"  "No, Jim," replied Sir Arthur,  "Miss Meade, though a miller's daughter, is not a mere young person.  She has every qualification for ascending- the social scale. Beauty  such as that young lady's is a distinction in itself, even without such  a manner as hers." ' ,  "Surely, sir," objected" Jim, "a  woman  takes  her father's  rank?"  "Her husband's," interrupted  Claude.  "And Miss Meade is as good as  married to a gentleman," added Sir  Arthur.  "Oh! an officer and a gentleman! I  daresay! But Randal is only a'ranker,"   Jim urged.  "Ho is a gentleman by birth,"  his  father replied,   with    emphasis,     and  as he spoke he'caught Claude's   eye  "on him with a look of surprise   and  'caution.  "Oh, I thought ho was a foundling,  brought up by some fgrmer, and rose  from the ranks'," returned Jim; "well  he is engaged to a confoundedly  good-looking girl, that's all."  "After nil, what is birth to a  woman?" Claude added with a sen-'  tentiousness that highly amused his  mother, "rank and name descend by.  the male side. The son of a duke's  daughter may  be only Mr.  Smith."  "Mr. Smith with a difference, a  duke's grandson," Sir Arthur interjected.  "Still plain Smith', or Smith-Swcl-  lington at most, sir. But as you  said, beauty and manner arc the only needful things for a woman, her  name and rank come from her husband."  Sir Arthur was not sufficiently interested in the question to point out  that this was not precisely the purport of his words. "Did 1 say so?"  he returned with a gentle smile, retiring into the seclusion of his Morn-  tag Post. '  "I hope you will go to no more  tea parties, Claude," his mother  said, plaintively, "they make you  ponderous. I wish Clara would  come, one docs get so bored  nt Marwell. Didn't somebody say  something about having a letter  from her, by the way?".  "I heard  from  her to-day,  here   is  't'��*    Setter,'  ��Ju��''       tare  the brown, 'shallow stream, dappled  by leaf shadows and sunlight.  , She-had not waited long before she  heard a firm, quick step descending  from the, opposite field, and looked  up into "tho handsome," good-tempered face of.Mr.-Ingleby, at which ��� her  own brightened, and said, with a  pretty eagerness, . as he approached  her :  "I .am so glad, Mr. Ingleby. - I  hope you are not in a hurry, I was  on my way to see you."  "Hurry! My dear Jess���Miss Meade  is anybody , or ' anything ever in a  hurry in the country ? Look at this  lazy, loitering stream; it seems as if  it would never get to the sea."-'  VBut it will," replied Jessie, looking thoughtfully dawn-into it, "it  keeps on, you see, it does the best  it can." .    ' ,  " 'Books in the running brooks.'  What littlo sermon arc you extracting from the water, Miss Meade?"  Sho looked up with a smile, and he  noticed the strained serious set of  hoi- face, the blue shadows beneath  her eyes, the general fatigued aspect  which emphasized both her youth  an'd hot;  beauty.  "I have so few friends," she said,  "and'such confidence in you. And I  wanted "  "You wore going to consult me?"  he added, gently. "I only hope. T  shall prove worthy of the trust. And  if I am too stupid, perhaps my sister "  "No," returned Jessie, "I don't  think Miss Ingleby would understand.  Oh! Mr. Ingleby," she added, "it is  so hard to know what to do���so very  hard "  "I should have thought, my dear  child," he replied gravely, "that  your life was marked out so clearly  before you that you had no need to  consider that question."  "That is tho trouble of it. Othors  mark out my life for mc; I am not a  froe agent. I am obliged to do  what I know to be wrong."  "Surely not. No one who has  charge of you would wish you to do  what you know to be wrong," he replied with a gentle rebuke. "I know,  them all.     They all    treat me as a  them all,     Jessie,   they are all    up-  Claudc    replied,  "you1 right, true people, j Have you spoken  to     inbd  it,     hdother? j to them?     But of con ire z on   would  do  so  before turning to a  comparative stranger like myself."  "Yes," she replied with a,  -wearied air, "I havo spoken to th'em,r  each and all. They all treat me as a  child, "an irresponsible being. Philip  forgets what a difference nearly two  years makes in . a girl; besides, he  has been through such stirring scenes  that he can scarcely be expected to  give much' thought to my small concerns���my lifo is not in perpetual  peril,  you  see."  "She is going^to break with that  poor "fellow," Mr. Ingleby thought.  "Hard4 lines for Philip: but what  could he expect of such a babe ? And  yet she cannot have asked to be set  free. No man would bind a t girl  against her will."  ''Jessie," he said aloud,' "we 'can  none of us take our lives in our  hands and say, we will do this and  that with them. , Our lines arc cast  for us, often before wc are born; human beings are so linked and intertwined by ties', of kinship, duty and  mutual service that no man can 'say  L will go this way regardless of  others���how much less a womaiH"  "How much loss indeed!" she broke  out with a bitterness which startled^  him, "we wonder at Turks who'  keep their women in cages, and at  Chinese 'who deliberately -cripple  them, but Englishmen are quite , as  bad; though they'do leave their bod-'  ies comparatively free, they cage  and cripple their souls."   -      '  "Tell mc all about it," he. said,  after a brief-pause of astonishment,  "let us rest upon this felled timber  in tho shade and not excite our-'  selves, and you l shall tell me, if "you  can or will, all'about this caging  and crippling, what you wish to do  and'what your good friends think of  it. I am an old friend; I knew you  as a very little girl���a good little  girl though spoilt. I am the parson  of the--parish, /and an old man in  comparison with you. , I ought to  know more of'lifp and its duties than  Miss Jessie Meade, and few things  would'give me,-greater pleasure than  to do her service."  "Yes," replied Jessie, as she took  the place he indicated on the prostrate tree-trunk in the wood shadow  and speaking with a seriousness that  rather took him aback,' "it is not  liko speaking to a young man; if  people; are not wise at your age, they  never will be." Hr. Ingleby ruefully  passed his hand over his crisp black'  hair, wondering if he had suddenly  turned gray and if crow's feet had  gathered round his eyes since the  morning. "Wisdom and gray hairs"  he muttered, seating himself at her  side.  "And yet," she pursued, "you -are  but a man after all.". .  ,'True; I was never taken for a de-  mi-god, to''my knowledge, or a bear,  even in youth."  '"Mr. Ingleby," she continued, raising her serious, sweet eyes scarching-  ly to his, "is not idleness a sin ?  Then why must I live in idleness ? I  have talents. Ought I-in bury them  in a napkin?"  ,Good gracious, I hope she isn't  stage-struck," he thought. . "You  need--never be idle," he replied; with  books, your needle, your pencil, and  househo'ld tasks; all these things will  prepare you for your approaching  marriage. My sister will tclL, you  better than I can what a busy, useful life you may lead.  "The old story," returned Jessie  sadly. "No one wants my needle or  my pencil at Redwoods. There are  no books, no means of improving  one's self. As to household tasks,  my cousin has not enough for herself; if she had she could.have extra  maids. 1 cannot live at Redwoods;  I am fretting myself away there  and doing no one any good���ah, perhaps���perhaps I am doing harm���at  least to myself."  So she spoke, unfolding her plans  1o him, her wish to support herself  by some suitable occupation, or at  der income, which she sadly feared,  as she confessed, was partly made  up by Philip, as would enable her to  procure first-class instruction, particularly in painting, for which', she  was assured, she had talent. Her  marriage could not take place yet for  some time. ��� That marriage .would  place her in a position above that in  which she was' born; she needed somo  education for it. She wished Mr.  Ingleby to persuade her guardians  that Redwoods was no place for her,  and that it was only fitting for her  to go out into -the world in some  honest capacity. ��� To teach in a  good school for instance, and receive  lessons at the name time. "You  know, Mr. Ingleby," she said in conclusion, "that people always get into mischief if they have nothing to  do."  "And I know that people never  need be idle unless they choose," he  returned, "especially women. What  havo you to do with art���the only  great artists arc men���or learning ?  Your duty, Jessie, is to be a wife  and mother."  "Oh!" cried Jessie, with a little  impatient,' scornful turn of her head,  for she was- sick,of the wife and  mother cant, "is it absolutely necessary for wives and ��� mothers to be  idle and dunces? Men are not told  to loaf about in idleness because  they are to be husbands and fathers  somo day. Philip was not kept  from tho war on that account."  Mr. Ingleby smiled indulgently, as  ono smiles'at the-mischief of a pretty-  pet kitten, and gently patted her  hand. "You shall have plenty to  do," he said, "you know how glad  I should,bo if you would teach in the  Sunday -School! Then I want to  start a lending library; and a host,  of parish things in which help like  yours would be half the battle.' If  you like I will suggest to your cousin that you should help in tha house  hold   work and    have more1 drawing  lessons  as- well." '  "Thank' you,", ' sho replied, with  an air so faultlessly inexpressive that  ho could ' not detect tho sarcasm,  "you mean well."  ,Shc sat with her hands,'on one of  which-Mr. Ingleby had laid his own  caressingly, clasped on her knee,  looking before her at tho brown flowing stream, in a sort of, hopeless silence for some .moments^ revolving  things in her ,,mind, 1 and wondering  if she dared trust him with ^ tho  truth, and-if, even in'that, case, he  would help her to what she knew  to-be her ��� only safe course. He, in  the meantime, was thinking 'seriously of her, and 'pondering what the  key to,her'discontent might" be.1 How-  account for tho - fatigued, worn look  in the sweet young face ? * Had he  not seen her only the 11 ight_ before  at his own table, as happy, and pleasant, and unconscious of self as any  well-conditioned .young girl could  hope to be ? And those irrational  fears of his respecting the danger of  her frequent contact 1 with Claude  Medway had all been laid to rest.  There was neither coquetry nor vanity in Jessie; it was evident < that  she and Medway were able to-meet,  however frequently, on such distant  terms as excluded any possibility of  touching each other's hearts; her  position was high enough to insure  respect, and too low'to admit of intimacy. But'there was a depth of  sorrowful moaning - in Jessie's face,  and'a" gentle, patient endurance, in  tho slightly drooping attitudo"' that  went to -his 'heart. Redwoods 'must  bc^ after all, a most uncongenial  home- for such a girl. Philip's distance and danger must, be-a heavy  sorrow. And then Mrs.,'Plummer's  tongue!. Philip had" been alluded to  in a manner which indicated that he  was not held tho most faultless of  lovers; perhaps there was j some lovers' quarrel hard to bear at such ra  distance, and by the girl who was  loft' behind. ' There was an evidont  desire to leave Redwoods at the bottom of it all, a desiretduc, perhaps,  partly to the restlessness of a long  engagement. Perhaps it-was only  a'temporary rebellion-against circumstances, brought'on'.by 'a fit of  temper, an unsatisfacttory letter  from India, Cousin' Jane's tongue,  or some sudden disgust at the men  Plummer's rough ways, mingled with  the discontent of a spoiled . child.  But the look in Jessie's face touched,  him deeply,' reason as he would, during the long silence in which'he, studied it; ,a silence emphasized by the  murmur of the stream, upon its mossy stones, the 'gentle ..sigh of the  summer wind . through' the leafy  boughs, the'""twitter and persistent  chirp of chaffinch and starling, , the  hum of insects, and the'rustle of  small creatures among dead leaves  and twigs. They' were so ' quiet  that a butterfly "poised on a beech-  spray almost touching Jessie]s head,  and a bee hummed about' a "''spike  of (.wood-betony which rustled against  her skirts. , '  (TO DC7Continued.) '  SOME  BIB J0COI0TIVES  MACHINES    ��� THAT    CAN" HAUL  100 LOADED  CARS.    '  More   Cars   to   the  Train ��� Hauled  -      ' NVw-a-days Than   *    "   ,  Formerly.  "The giant freight locomotive of  to-day," saidNa railroad, man, "walks  away easily with many times the  load liauled by the freight engine of  twenty-five years ago, and ,it has  simply revolutionized the freight traf--  fie' business.  "The old-time freight'engines weighed from 60,000 to 90,000 pound's, exclusive of 'the tender, which weighed  from, 45,000 to 60,000 "pounds. ,In  those days the freight cars were from  26 to 28 feet long, their, average  weight was ten ��� tons,-the maximum  load carried to a car ,wos ten tons,  and the average number of cars to a  train was twenty-five or thirty.  "Call -the number of cars to a  train thirty, for the sake of illustration, and say that was loaded'to its maximum capacity, and you  have a train of cars weighing 300  tons, 'carrying a load of the same  weight, making, as hauled by tho old  time locomotive, a total load of 600  tons.  "The big modern freight locomotive weighs from 195,000 to 220,000  pounds, exclusive of the tender, which  weighs about 140,000 pounds; or, to  put tlicso engine weights in ,tqns,  while the old engine, with its tender  included, weighed altogether approximately sixty-seven tons, tlie modern  engine, with its "tender "complete,  weighs about 170 tons, and this  giant locomotive can haul on a level  road .100 loaded cars, and these cars  arc heavier than the old-time cars,  and all carrying  MUCH HEAVIER LOADS.  "There arc now made box cars of  a capacity of forty tons, and on  some roads of fifty tons. Th'e forty-  ton car, for example, is forty feet  long and weighs nineteen tons.  "Observe tliat the capacity of this  car is more than double the weight  of tlie car itself, %vhile In the old-  time car, with* the capacity'and tho  weight of the car equal, there was as  much dead weight hauled as freight.  In all modern car building by better  and more scientific construction a  constant effort''has been made, and  with increasingly successful results,  to increase the car capacity in proportion to tho weight of  tho car.  "But, while such highly economical  cars   have now     como  into  use,  the  great majority of th'e earn running  throughout the country have not yet  been brought-up' to ,so high a Standard. If'you should tat* the cars  as you actually find them-running today you 'would find them to average  a length of about 35 feet and a  weight of 15 tons as against"the old-  time 28-foot,  10-ton freight car.  "As to the load now carried," it is  pretty difficult to strike an average, j  but that could probably be But'down!  at 25 tons, as against the old-time 1  maximum"; 10-ton load,"' makiag - the,  present day average box car and -load;  together weigh 40 tons, against tho,  old time-total of'20 tons.  "And now if you will take a train  of to-day of- sixty loaded cars, which  is far below the average for lovel  roads, you will find a big cngino  hauling, a train of twice as . m.iny  cars as were hauled in an old-time  train, and these loaded cars weighing  twice as much, or sixty cars of a total load of 40 tons each, as against  thirty-cars of 20 tons each, making  the total load hauled now four times  the old load, or .     "'       '"  2,400 TONS AGAINST 000.  "And don't forget that while in the  600-ton load more than 50 per cent,  was dead weight,, in the 2,400-ton  load the dead Reigh't is only about  88 per cent, and- the'-revenue -weight  about 60 por cent. And, us wo have  socn, in tho most modern cars tho  proportion of the freight weight carried to the 'dead weight is 'larger -  still.  "We have used "as 'a basis for figur- -  ing a train of sixty average cars. But  'n.s ] have siild, that would be far  below the avcrago.of the number of  cars luiulcd by great'trunk linos running through'-lovel regions. , On such'  lines they have trains of 100 loaded  cars,' making the weight hauled, say,  4,000 tons; and trains of 95 loaded  cars arc not 'uncommon, and the average number of cars to a-train -on  such roads might be set dawntat 85'  or  90.     -  "Those  figures  arc largely approximate, but they show the,revolution ini  freight hauling that has,been wrought^  with the aid of the modern freight locomotive! ,' ' :-  "Tlie great locomotives havo increased the efficiency of the railroads  in many ways., If, for instance, it  should be sought to haul with engines' of the old-time power the enormously, increased amount of freight  tliat the -railroads have now to han- ���  die, there would be so many trains  on the roads that they couWn't move  and the roads would be practically  blocked. ' -  "Of "course, the big locomotive is  vastly r more, economical. It costs  twice as much as the old-time locomotive did to begin with, but tiiat is  really an inconsiderable item as com--  pared with the increase in the amount  of work-it does. ��� "  "The"big engine can be run by th'e.  same number that handled the  little one, and'with power bi alios  on  the cars the same crew can handle the  bigger train.  LABOR^ COSTS MUCH 'MORE  than it formerly did, and the big  engine burns more fuel, and of course  the cost, of the supplies needed for  the running of the big train is greit-.,  er and so is the cost of repairs; but  all this greatly increased exjpense is  spread over so much more freight  hauled that the actual cost of hauling  has been reduced and freight is now  hauled cheaper, than "ever.  "The' great modern freight locomotive couldn't be used on roads as they build them, and so tliey lay  now-a-days far heavier rails than formerly; where they ,uscd to put down ���  rails of fifty or sixty .pounds to tho ,  yard they now lay 3 00-pound rails  to sustain the added weight of tho  great engine. . ;  /'And as far heavier  rails  are  l.aidi  for    these    great engines to'run  on,|  very,different appliances and machinery are used' in handling them   when''  off the road.    In  old times,  for    example,   when  they  had   one  of those,  little old engines in the ahop for repairs, -if  they  had  occasion  to  raise   .  it they    used to jack it up.     Now-a-  days    they    have    tremendous cranes' -  that will lift one of these ponderous  engines., as easily as the great engine  itself will haul its heavy load on .the  l-ails'.  "And as to the roads, again, bo-  sides being reluid with far heavier  rails they havo been further improved  and th'e hauling of far heavier loads  over them made possible by far better construction and by the straightening out of curves and the reducing  of grades,' and all these improvements  have of course contributed greatly to  the present day efficiency of the roads  in the hauling of freight; but all tlicso  things together wouldn't count for  much, without tho modern'freight locomotive, the giant engine that walks  away across tlie country easily hauling a Hundred loaded freight curs."    j  ii  .1  $  THE NEW ARRIVAL.
