The boy had  been playing at the rear of his  parents' house and fell into the  "Brackett" ditch, immediately in  the rear of the dwelling. He was  only out of his mother's sight a few  momenta when she missed him, and  after looking around, suspected the  ditch. Frank Wostell, who happened to be passing, assisted in the  search, and on following the ditch  to Thomson's cabin, a distance of  about 300 yards, found the body.

MOST EEIAffiABLE CASE  fl.  MAN" WHO   SEES  SOUNDS IN  VARIED COLORS.  Crossed    Nerves    In. Brain Enable  Him to  Interchange  Three  Senses.  There    is a young man of twenty-  six    at     Zurich,   Switzerland,     with  such   a     wonderful     brain  that     the  neurologists     and    psychologists     of  Pans are visiting Switzerland to see-''  with  their     own eyes  the marvelous  performances   related  of   him  by   tho  noted    alienist.    Dr.     Alfred TJlrich,  'who  disco\ci*cd him  threo yeats    ago  and    who   has  just    published   m     a  Paris   specialists'   journal  a  full <��� ac-  cm'iiil   of  the  reaiarkablo  case.  The young  man  is a  native  Swiss  ,   of poor family,  and that is how    he  loll under  the observation of Dr.  Ul-  iich./vTho is the .hoad of the nervous  hospital     at   Zurich.        The  patient  came  to     the hospital  for treatment  ol  a  slight  spasmodic  affection,     but  Dr.    Ulrich    soon discovered ho   had  happened on one of tho most curious  and amazing cases In the annals    of  science.      It  is difficult  to make  out  tho causes of the strange things this  voting     man    can do,  for  an exactly  Similar  case  was    never  known,     although     the      patient's     brother,     a  younger man,  presents many of   tho  same phenomena.  MATHEMATICAL PRODIGY.  Until the boy was 13 years old   it  was  believed ho  would make  a    second    Newton  or Gauss  in mathoma-  - tics.      His ability to ,solve the- -most  . difficult problems, in arithmetic    was  such  as  to  amaze his' teachers. -    At  5 years of age "he could quickly perform the solution of the hardest kind  of the simpler arithmetical problems;  and,    later     he  developed  still more  wonderful     facility  as^ a- mathematician.      At 13,     however,  ho  fell    ill  #with measles,  and upon his recovery  he lost his color, his general health,  and his 'brilliancy  of mind,   but   new  powers     came      to    him  which  wore  quite ^'unobserved,   at'least  in     their  Tscientific importance, until he fell un-  der'-the eye of  the Swiss  alienist.     ' j  It was then learned that ever since |  his boyhood the young man could see  rcolor in     tho    sound of the    human  Voice.      After     his    attack,   of     the  measles   all  kinds     of     sounds   wero  , translated     into 'color after reaching  his brain.     He could hoar no definite  sound     without     at    the "same  timo  sensing  a  definite  color or  combination of definite colors. l  Dr. Ulrich discovered other strange  things ^ in Ahe sensations of his .'patient,   and  for     three years  he     has  , been making continous tests and experiments,     the'results of which    ho  has now given to tho scientific world.  SOUND   OF THE VOWELS.  The most^ntenso colors the    young  man  can see  are  producod. before his  ?yes when he hears the sound of   the  vowels.    When     the     letter   "a."     is  sounded    ho    perceives     a    brilliant  gteen,   but  at the same  time he has  a   sensation  as   of  feeling  something  cold  and smooth,  such 'as glass. The  sound of the letter "e" produces several  varying   colors  before  his   eyes,  but particularly yellow  or shades  of  fellow.      Tho letter "i" gives him a  sensation of  dark  color,   "o"   is     re;  presented by a bright red,   "u"  is a  dark green, and  "y" is white.  When he looks at those letters in  print he sees colors corresponding  ivith. those he sees when the letters  lire sounded, but much less vividly.  ITheso results wore obtained by experiments chiefly, jnado with tho hu-  liian voice.  Hat  the young Swiss  perceives  dif-  HE'S OILY ONE      .

Fortune Harbor, Nfld., Juno, 13.���  (Special).���Scores of poople in thia  neighborhood are living proofs'that  Dodd's Kidney Pills cure all Kidney  ailments from, Backache to Bright's  Disease. Among tho most remarkable " cures is I hat of Mr. Richard  Quirk, and he gives the story of it  to  the public as  follows :  "1 suffered for over twenty years  from Lumbago and , Kidney Disease  and at intervals was totally 'unable  to work. After ten or twelvo years  of doctors treatment, I had made up  my mind that my complaint was incurable. Reading of cures by1 Dodd's  Kidney Pills tempted mo to try  them. I did so with little faith,  but to my great surprise I had not  taken more than half a box (before  I felt relief and after the use of  seven or eight boxes, I was' fully  cured and a now man. ,  "Yes, * Dodd's Kidney'Pills cured-  my Lumbago and Kidney Disease,  and the best of it is I have stayed  cured." >        , '  Unless the soap you  ,use has this brand you  are not getting the best  Ash for tbe Octagon Bar.  *��  ferent colors in the cries of -different  animals. The cry of a dogiproducos  for him a sensation" of 'yellow; when  ho hears the cry of a black-bird ho  porceives a red color; the raven's  voice flashed a color of > green before  his eyes; the low of a cow is followed by tho perception of indigo,  while the bleat of a sheep gives him.  an impression of yellow.  SENSES   INTERCHANGEABLE.  Remarkable as all this may be, tho  young Swiss seems to have in his*  brain some strange faculty by  which almost all the senses seem to  bo convertible! one into another, and  rhis faculty rondcrod tho best and  most conclusively positive results in  the experiments, for it left him entirely in tho hands of tlie experiment-  ter. .  In his brain tho senses of form,  color, and sound aro interchangeable.  In other words, ho can feel tho quality of roundness in , a sound, of  squareness or roundness in^a color,  of color in roundness or squareness.  He not only sees a sound and hears  a color, but he sees 'and hears tho  shape or form of things. For example, for him a circle produces -a  sensation of ted, and when ho smells  iodoform he can see a bright red  color and perceive, at the same time,  a sour or bitter.sour taste. When  he touches, a cold object ho can see  a green color, and he sees a red color when ho touches a hotl object.  SENSES FORMS OF TOUCH.  for the borrowers include Brighouso,  with a population of under 22,000,  and Glasgow, with a population , of  over 760,000.

Tho entire  busi  ness, it is claimed, Is done in tho  brain whore^the*difTerent centres controlling the sensations act like a  switchboard upon which no coordinated method is at work. So that  the senso of roundness, < when a  round object is seen or felt," is carried to the bia.ni and thore, by misplaced switches of the gray matter,  is converted into color, sound, or  even smell and taste.  Dr. Ulrich calls attention to the  surprising fact that one person in  every ten has this remarkable faculty  In a small degree, only tho person  having it is not aware he is exceptional. He says these persons are  perfectly healthy in all respects, so  far as their nerves or brain arc concerned, but having been accustomed  to these sensations from their childhood, think they arc perfectly natural and hence not worthy of particular notice.   0.   SHORT  MUNICIPAL   LOANS.  Towns Accept Sums  to be""Repaid  in  Six  Months.  Tho    London    Argus      of a recent  date,   contains  an   interesting  article  on     tho  difficulties     now  experienced  by  municipalities  in    raising   money.  It   draw.s    attention   to  tho  extraordinary measures  that are  being taken     by     over 30  of  these  bodlos  to  procure  loans in  sums ranging   from  ��.->0   to   ��1,000   from   any   who   will  lend.      Some    of tho largest  provincial  cities aio  included   in   the     list.  Tho rates of interest aio,  in (he ma-  lority  of    casos,  between  3�� and     4.  por cent.        Various    terms of    payment are offorod.     Tho Argus says���  "In most cases there is the condition  of   tho   loan  being  vepajablo  at     six  months' notice.

"Poor child," he exclaimed, almost  before he knew that he was speaking.  There was such a concentrated tenderness and compassion in his voice,  that/ Jessie's ovei wrought feelings  reached a climax, and she burst into  tears. a Sho was about to tell him  all, when the sound of a heavy iron  step on the wooden footbridge mado  her stait, while Air. Ingleby, with a  nuddon, half-guilty air, sprang to  his foot, dropping her hand, when  'h ecaught the full, indignant, sullen  ga/e of Rogcr~Plummcr's eyes, and  crimsoned  beneath  it.  The bridge was* a stone's'throw  'from the fallen trunk, which was  partly screened from it by has-el  bushes, and Roger, with a savage  touch of hib hat, and llnal scowl,  ,was out of sight again m~n moment,  leaving J ess 10 uneasy and half-abash-  , cd, sho know not'.whv  ^ , Mr. Ingleby did not again take her  hand or suffer his voice to betray  too fully the tender compassion he  felt for the lonely, lovely child he  had seen grow toward womanhood.  He stood befoio her with a grave  air, and'pleached her a nice little  sermon 011 the sin of discontent, to  which sho listened with becoming  meekness, though not without a lit.  tie reproach in her laigc pathetic  gaze, He recommended her somo  devotional and other reading, <and  chalked out various duties for her,  and bid her come - oftener to the rectory and take counsel of his sister.  "I know," he "said in conclusion,  "tha.t your position is a very trying  one, but heaven will ,reward you as  you boar it patiently. Be of good  cheer, Jessie, India will soon be  tranquil, and you and Philip will bo  united and live happy ever after,  like a story book. But, I am sadly,  afraid that your connection with  Marweli Court has done you harm.  ^Forgive my plain speech if I say that  **Miss Lonsdale is not a fit friend for  you.

It would  be cmel to desert Miss Wedway when  I am near and have no other duties.'  "The whim will pass with her;  don't make yourself indispensable  there," ho repeated, utterly blind to  the real danger. "Go less frequently."  "You may be sure, Mr. Ingleby,  that I shall not go there more frequently than I can help." she replied,  with despairing emphasis as they  parted, and she went home with her  seciet still locked in her breast.

Jessie's sweet' little pipe ^scarcely atones for it. By  tho wa.v, .Sue, it was rather too  much of a good thing to call out  the military to cut up the | children's  cake for you."  "I didn't - I had set Jessie to cut  it in the school house Captain Medway happened to be passing by and  just looked in. When ho saw poor  little Jessie slaving away at' the  slabs, of cake with a great carving-  knife, the* good-natured fellow quietly took the knife out of her hands  Jessie made no demur, but abdicated  her post with her little princess air.  I believe that if the Prince of Wales  were to rush headlong to pick up her  handkei chief, she would accept "it as  a natural and proper^ attention Unless heredity is humbug, that child is  the changeling and not Philip Randal.!'

To     Philip,   Mr.   Chceseman,     and  Mrs.  Plummer,     Jessie had appealed  In vain for pei mission to faie   forth  Into a woild of honorable toil.   But  Mr. Ingleby was a man of finer sensibilities,     and     of  wider  and  fuller  knowledge of life than either of    her  guardians, she had thought he would  understand   what  she  dared   not put  Into  wouls,     and   what  &hc  scarcely  acknowledged even to her'1 own heait,  until .that sudden  lush  of feeling    in  the Ingleby's  drawing-room frightened her.    'Finding that she must t remain at    KedwoodF,  she decided    to  make tho best of it,  and  was    even  half ashamed    of her own cowardice  in trying to flee the temptation that  she knew she ought   to resist.      Was  eho    so    poor    a creature,  that she  could not conquer   a passing and unlawful fancy? surely not.     Philip acknowledged   ' that    he     was  horribly  frightened at    Alma,  but he did  not  run  away,   neither  would  she.   ' Sho  thought  of Philip's  favorite lines .  "Thou dost    proseivc the stars from  wrong,  And       tho    most      ancient  through thee are fresh and  strong "  \  She followed Mr. Ingleby's counsels, and listened to volumes of good  advice from his sister, who took her  in hand as des>ired, and petted and  scolded her with zest; she became a  Sunday School teacher, and spent  many hot Sunday afternoons in turmoil, dust and noise, before a row of  stolid, mischievous urchins; vainly  trying to explain to th"m things she  did not understand herself, and to  keep her temper under maddening  provocation, until the day, mis-called "of rest," became tho most exhausting and unpleasant of the seven.  Mirs Ingleby liked her brother to  tense her nbout her grand flirtation  with Claude Modway, and she did  not hesitate to sny that his visits  nnd the quips and sallies which pass-  <*tf between them, made her feel  "feast eix jycnrs younger.  would'not    wish it; he seems to  a regular'fiic-eater."  "Well,     they    can wait,  they     arc  3-oung enough."  "But    Jessie's position is so peculiar.  Sue."  "Peculiarly    pleasant,     I       should  think      Happily engaged, 3'oung   and  pretty,     with no    cares,  petted    by.  eveij'body, even middle-aged parsons  What can the gnl want more?"  About a week after Jessie's confession b>* the stream ;a message came  from Ethel Medway entreating her  to come up and spend the day with  her. Everjbody was out, even the  nurse wanted the aitcinoon, it was  too lainy for Ethel to -venture out  of doors. So in half an hour's  lime Jessie was ,standing by Ethel's  couch, a fic&h aod hope-inspiring vision, with ram-diops spaiklmg upon  her bright hair; and her color heightened by the damp, soft nil, ready to  do anj'thmg to while away tho tedium of the- sick gnl, for whom she  had a tenderness. Tho pale, pinched  face brightened at the sight of her,  and Ethel raised hei arms and drew  Jessie down to kiss her, the latter  submitting to the caress with the  princess air Miss Ingleby had observed.  "Eveij-bocly is so cross and disagreeable this momingi" 6ho said in  a queiulous tone, "I suppose the lain  spoils their tcmpci.s. Do-you feel  cross, Jessie?"  "Not in the least, dear Miss Medway," sho replied, with ��, gentle  smile; "it i& a treat to come and  too you."  She soon chased away the gloom  and peevishness, and in a few minutes hurt her patient in a wheel-chair  travel sing tho North Gallery, in  which theie were a few good pictuies  heavens among many family ��� poitraits and  otheis of mcdiocie worth. To Jessie  it was the pictuie gallciy, and a  .source of gioat inspiration, since she  had seen no other, and it was a real  pleasure, as she said, to linger  through it and hear all that Ethel  could tell her about tho pictuies. Indeed Marweli Court, really a fine  building full of artistic and interesting things, was the most interesting  placo Jessie had ever seen, though  she had discovered that rofined and  beautiful surroundings do not make  people perfect.  At the end of tho long gallery was  a large, deep bay window, and in  this, at Jessie's suggestion, luncheon  was served on a largo oak table.  Hero, besides the long vista of the  gallery, they had an extensive view  of tho park with its beautifully  grouped oaks and beeches, so that  they seerncdv to be in the moist  green world outside,  being protected  at   and  "It is like a picnic 111 the rain,"  they said, and tho time, instead of  dragging by with leaden weight,  flew, and the rare sound of Ethel's  voice echoed  through  the gallery.  It fell pleasantly upon the ear of  someone approaching the bay window  unseen, by a side, corndoi, so pleasantly, that he paused a moment to  listen ' to the girls' mirth. Jessie  was showing/ some Indian toys and  knick-knacks that she had just received from Philip; sheihad thrown a  richly colored,, silken sau around her,  and was plajing- with an ivory cup  und ball, laughing and making little  jests with the happy abandonment  of a child; while Ethel hung upon  eveiy word and gesture of her entertainer like a little kitten enjoying  the gambols of an older "kit."  It seemed such a pi 13- to interrupt  this innocent pastime, that the newcomer, ' whofcc footfall was unheard  upon the thick, pofl carpeting, slipped behind the heavy curtain of tho  deep  window,  and watched it.  The silken san glided gradually from  the slim figuic as'-its poise altered  with Jessie's efforts to catch the ball  until it lay ,at hor feet and she  paused, flushed and radiant, with one  bright binid of hair loose on her  shoulder, lo hand the cup to Ethel,  that she might essay her skill. Then  turning aside to ai range her disordered hair in the.mnroi foimcd by  a glazed pictuie near the curtain, sho  utteicd n  little startled cry.  "I beg youi pnrdon. I didn't like  to spoil your game " Captain Medway .said, coming forward, and bending over Ethel, holding a bouquet of  white moss-i-o.scs to her face, his  foot.catching in the sari as he did  so. *     < <���  Jessie after the fust crimson of  \v1dc-e3ed surprise, became very pale,  and hastily adjusting her hair and  dress, stood apart How like the  brother and sister were, and how  veijr patient 'and gentle the former  was with the slight, maimed creature  to whom he was so devoted.  He was not too graciously received, his sister poutmgly reminded  him that he was supposed to be absent for .the day. ' It was true that  ho went off with the others, he replied, but heAould not bear her to  be-all 'alone on that dismal day,  and she so low and depressed; and  see, he had 'brought her the"1 rare  white roses she was longing for, and  gone almost on purpose for them,  udden home ten miles in the rain  and mud for "them; was he not a  good brother?  "No," was the ungracious response  she and Jessie ���'had been perfectly  happy together, she wanted ^no one  else; and then began a catalogue of  Jessicas vii tues, which the latter interrupted rby making an attempt to  go. But Ethel dissolved in tears at  the very thought, and assured her  that she had promised to stay and  have 'tea.  "It would be a pity to spoil a  good action \>y curtailing it." Claude  said in a tone that implied a sortAoT  resigned reproach; and Jessie "saw  that she could not go away without  making a fuss over nothing.  "Besides," Ethel added, "3W have  not read mc Captain Randal's Luck-  now letter as 3011 promised "  Jessie hesitated, but the word  "Lucknow" was a cue that Captain  Medway did not fail to seize. Every-  bod}'- had a right to be interested in  Lucknow.  "Oh", but thnt was all.m'tho papers long ago," Jessie objected; "this  is stale news, the letter was delayed,  and it is only Captain Randal's personal experience, which might, I  thought, interest Miss Medway.','  "Only! Lucky fellow!" he exclaimed, and she found that she must read  tho letter  Would a girl under any circumstances read a love-letter, he asked  himself, while attentively stud3'ing  her movements, and pulling his lovely bouquet to pieces at his sister's  desire.  "Bear mc!" said Jessie, looking  about and searching among the toys  scattered on tho table; "where is the  letter-? Oh' here it is atrlast!" and  she picked a large foreign-looking  packet from the floor, where it had  fallen entangled in the sweeping sari.  Captain Medway smiled behind his  roses; lt was not thus, he had been  led to believe, that loveis' letteis  weie usually tieatcd, tossed about  nnd mislaid.  "Let mc see," she continued, opening it. "Dear Jessie���I was very,  glad to find your letter���yes���Cousin  Jane���hum. Abiahain I beg 30111-  pai don, Miss Med way. Oh' here is  the inteiesting part at last'���Sir  Colin is a fine old fellow, wo   learnt  his value 111 the Crimea " 1  "That wc did," commented Captain Medway, who had caiofully noted the significance, or rather, insignificance, of the little staccato quo-  la! ions.  'It is very badly written," Jessie  interpolated, laughingly; "but I  have read it aloud twice already,  and know it pretty well. It is understood that I am to save him the  trouble of wilting to otheis in this  wa3r."  "I think," said Ethel, when they  drew breath after the final capture  of Lucknow, "that it must be rather  unpleasant to have read one's love  letters aloud."  (To be Continued.)   ��   mm  FOOD AND MILK.  "It is well known that milk may  be- watered through the animal  body"���this is the key to an article  by Allan B. Graham, published in  the transactions of the Highland and  Agricultural Society of Scotland for  1904. Incidentally he touches upon  variations in food rations. A series  of interesting experiments was carried on by Mr. Graham, for the purpose of testing particularly as to  difference in water supply. , Two of  these were as follows : Two cows  were given the following rations  per da3' :  15 to 18 lbs. long hay.  Hot  mash���  4  lbs.   chaff   (cut hay  and ' straw,  equal parts ).  2 lbs. bean meal '  * 2 lbs. bruised oats.  2 lbs.  bran.  3,gals,  water, and 2 ounces salt.  4 lbs.  decorticated cotton-cake.  Treacle "drink; 4 gals,  water.  On the 4th 0/ February,  the   mixed morning    milk tested,   butter-fat,  3.85;  solids not fat,  9 7.  On 5th Februai3', the water - was  increased to 10 gals. A sample of  the mixed, milk was tested on, 11th  February, the result being buttcrfat,  3.2,  solids not fat, 8.8.     -  On 3rd March 6 lbs. Indian meal  was substituted for the cotton-cake,  thus producing a ration less rich in  albuminoids, and tho cows were fed  thus for five weeks. At the' end of  that time, a much richei^ration was  given, and continued for eight weeks.'  This time six pounds ' decorticated cotton-cake and six pounds  bean mear mado into a porridge were?given instead of the 6  lbs. Indian meal, the hot ma&h in  other respects remaining the same;  but the jWater supply was reduced  from 10 gallons to 6 gallons.- The  lesults of the experiment showed  that during the five weeks, when 10  gallons of water were given,'the percentage of butter-jfat was quite low;  immediately, however, after giving  a ration richer in albuminoids, and  decreasing the water to 6 gals., the  butter-fat increased and continued  much higher, till m the seventh and  eighth weeks it was over 3�� ��� per  cent , the increase in the quantity in  each case being m inverse ration to  tho variations in the butter-fat content. "      uj  During tho following^ summer a  number of cows were put in, a pasture, vwith an unlimited water supply  and as the summer was wetf it was  supposed that the cattle took, a  great deal 'of water along with the  grass. Under these'conditions, even  when fed 6 lbs. decorticated cotton  cako,daily,-���the "fat content of the  milk was low. 'Indian meal was  substituted for the cotton-cake, with  the result of a very slight decrease  in fat, hence * Mr. Graham deduced  that the quantity and quality of  milk fronji cows fed on grass during  a wet season cannot be influenced to  any great extent by feeding, and  that it is mainly by regulating the  amount of water consumed by a cow  that wc can alter the per cent, fat  in the milk. Mr Graham also considers that overmuch water has a  deleterious effect on the quality and  texture of the butter made from the  milk.  Regarding the question as to whether the quality of milk is increased  by difference 111 quantity or-   quality  of feeding rations,  a Bummary of results    attained    through experiments  conducted by    Professors Farrington  und -Woll  are given,   which  tend     to  show that an increase in feeding rations will not change the richness of  milk,  provided     the cows have    not  been starved    or    underfed to  begin  with.      The  quantity  will     increase,  but not the quality.     For the    first  few  da3rs  after the change has   been  made,   the milk  will, be richer,     but  as soon   as  the cows have  got  used  to the new rations the. milk returns  to ils noimal quality, hence, the pro-  fcssois have concluded that the quality of milk a cow gives is natural to  her,  and  that the only way of   pei-  manently  improving the  richness    of  milk is by    disposing of cows    that  give  poor    milk,'   and  kscping  only  "those whose    milk is rich in  butter-  i'al       On the other hand, it must be  ipmembcied  that,     though  one     cow  nmj' gne pooior milk  than another,  the may more than make up the percentage  in   the  larger  amounts     she  3'ields.      The   pei sistency    of    n  cow  in    keeping    up the 310k! is also    a  point  of  importance       Hence,    both  cow   and     leeding   require   selection,  those    cows    only     being     retained  which give the highest total amount  of butter-fat.  weight enough on the platform to  exactly balance it, then weigh what  you have placed on platform in tho  usual way, and divide its weight by  100 to find the weight of 'the small  article. ' Thus it will tako twenty-'  five pounds on the platform to bal-  anco one-quarter pound on tho counterpoise, or, six and one-quarter  pounds on the platform to balance  ono ounce on the counterpoise.  In some large scales, the "100  pound" weight is marked "4-ounce.**  In that case, of course, four ������ ounces  on the counterpoise balances one  hundred pounds on the platform, or  one ounce balances 25 pounds.  afl  "   POULTRY NOTES.'

Many farmers having a large faim  scale with a capacity of from twelve  to srxt3r hundred pounds, have no  means of weighing accurately any  article weighing less than, at the  very least, a half pound. When it  is necessary to weigh less than this,  and the usual farm scales at hand,  the following method will be found  quite simple, and, what is often more  important, it is very accurate if  ordinary care be taken. In the ordinary farm scale a one-pound 'weight  must bo put on the counterpoise to  weigh articles over one hundred  pounds. In other words, one pound  on the end of beam balances one  hundred pounds on the platform. If,  then, it is desired to find tho weight  of a small    article, it is only neccs-  To the man3' instances gncn o>  ���typographical errors, which, like the  poor, are always with us, we add  the following ������  Horace Gieeley was noted for Ins  wretched wnlmg, which pu77led  many a printer Once he wrote,  "Tis true, 'tis pit3", and pity ,'tis  'tis true," quoted from Shakespeare.

Auvell-attended meeting was held  atthe Nugget Hall, Discovery, last  Satnrda}1-, at which-.. Dr. H. E.  ' Young, M. I,. A., and Mr. J. A\  , Fraser, Gold Commissioner, were  picsent. The chair was-taken by  -Mr. Green,, who stat��d that the  meetinsr was called to show to the  Gold Coinini&sioner what the public sentinieut was in regard to the  granting of leases of placer ground.  He staled that Volcanic Creek was  simply'mentioned in order to make  a test, and wa9 notv especially di-  rec'Led against the granting of leases  on that creek. "       r   >���  Many operators were heard from,,  and, in so far as Volcanic Creek was  .concerned, the general opinion was  that, as it  had  been  worked  and  <  abandoned, both as placer and leasehold  ground, it- actually remained  with the Gold Commissioner to use  his,own discretion as to the granting oT said leases.    However, later  , . in the evening when- the  last  motion was put,-it carried  in'spite of  , the amendment to the contrary.  '1 ac general opitirota is, and has  alwa\s beeii, that where leases were  adjacent to,claims actually being  worked, that such ground should  not be granted as leasehold, as it  hampered the" prior rights of the  mdividual'rniner.  The pernicious habit of blanketing large areas of ground for speculative purposes was, also strongly  condemned.  o The meeting, which lasted till  past midnight, passed the following  motions, which the secretary, Mr.  Paxton, forwarded to our Member  and to the Gold Commissioner :  Moved and unanimously carried:  .*' That all hydraulic leases in the  Atlin District, on which assessment  work has not been done, should be  cancelled forthwith."  Moved and carried, after an  amendment had bean voted down :  "Thatjt is the opinion of this  meeting that hydraulic leases on  Volcanic Creek should *not be  granted."  ling practically half the, yvater of  Pine'Cieekl This season,'thecompany have doubled ,the cap"acity_of  the Deeks ditch', which is the" longest in the district and now, has a  capacity of 2,'soo inches.

pounds  white  sugar,   two  sliced     le-.
mons and  two  oranges.     Boil about
»- five  minutes.      When  lukewarm    add

into a jug  to    ferment, having   .the
Jug full, so it can run out as it ferments, filling up the jug with the remainder (if any is left "over, if   not,

Removal of soot marks—When soot
falls upon the carpet or rug, never
attempt to sweep <it up at once, for
the result is sure to be a disfiguring
mark. - Cover it thickly with nicely
dried salt, which will enable you to
sweep it up cleanly, so 'that not tho,
slightest stain or smear will be left.
Carpets should be beaten on the
wrong side first, and aftorward more
gently - on the right.' Never put
down a carpet on a damp floor, for
this—often the result of. hurry and
impatience on the part of weary
house-clenners—is a frequent cause of
carpets becoming moth-eaten'.
r Windows in damp weather—When it
is necessary to clean windows in
damp weather, ufce a little methylated spirit, nnd you will polish . tho
windows in , half the time, as tho
spirit evaporates,* and dries the superfluous moifcture at it goes.
To clean enameled baths—Stains
may be taken oil an enameled bath if
it is rubbed well with rough salt
moistened with vinegar. - This will
also clean enameled pots and pans,
no matter how burned or discolored
they may be.
To preserve stair carpets ^put pads
of old blankets on each .stop. If
there is no store "of ancient blanket
to,'draw from, a substitute may be
made of sovcrnl thicknesses of brown
paper. , ,     ,     ,

To boil eggs for invalids, bring the

Just as soon as the warm weather
comes the children want to go barefooted and then begins, trouble with
sore toes and bruises. They get all
kinds of wounds, but the most serious aro those made by rusty iron,
generally received by stepping on. an
old nail, the barbs of wire fences,
etc. y Such hurts often prove-serious,- resulting sometimes in lockjaw
und that is a disease that the doctors do not seem able to handle successfully.     ' _* - ,
Children should be instructed not
to think such hurts of/no consequence
This is not "babying" them, either,
for, they should be instructed why
care is desirable. Teach them to
come to you with' every hurt in
which the skin is broken, then see
thnt the wound is properly cleansed
and bound up with some healing liniment1) so that no foreign matter
either remains  or can enter.
In the case of, a wound from a
rusty nail—the most dangerous of injuries to tho barefoot boy—turpentine* 10 highly rerommended. Peach

keep covered until the' slices are soft-^

Fish—Separate the meat from "the
bones of any fish that may be left
from dinner, and place on one side.
Break into a bowl one or two eggs,
according to the amount of fish, add
salt, a bit of pepper, and one teaspoonful of plain flour; mix thoroughly. If you think there is not

add one slice of fresh, white bread,
minus crust, mix all well, and add
the fish. I'our into a frying pan in

on toast and serve. A - few - drops
of lemon juice sprinkled on the mixture improves  it for eomc tastes.

" 'says  Miss  Fabiola  Grammont,
daughter of Mr.  Charles   Grammoht,-
a  prosperous1 farmer     of   Champlain,
Que.,' "awl - while the   doctor"   who
attended me cured me of this " trouble, it left behind after effects    from
which    it,   seemed almost "impossible
to recover.      I grew weak and   very
pale;  my  appetite was  poor;  I    suf- .
fered  at  times      from  severe     head- \"? a silver
aches; and the least exertion left me
completely worn  out.      I- tried    several , remedies,   but  instead   of  getting better I was gradually    growing
worse.        Any work about the house
left  me  weak and dispirited,   and   'I
felt almost   like giving up.     At this
time a    friend     who   had used    Dr.
Williams'  Pink  Pills  with much  benefit, strongly urged me to give them
a trial.   I got a  box,  and as I    did
not feel any better when I had used
them,    I   would have given  them up
but for the fact that my friend-urged  that one  box  was     not     a    fair
trial.        I    then decided to continue
the juse of the pills and by the time
I had taken three boxes I found my
condition    vias   improving.      T    used
eight boxes in all, and by the   time
I had taken them all  my old    time
health    had -returned.      My  appetite
had improved, I had gained in weight
and the glow of health had returned

to have been the true successors of
the Prophet,' 'and on the anniversary

punishments.    '
A' correspondent of the London
Chronicle was privileged to see this
rite and gives the following vivid description of it :—
It is five o'clock in tho" afternoon.
All the previous day and night have
been spent by the*-Persians in weeping anii lamentation; nil this morn-
swords) and preparing other instruments for seff-torture;' walls and,
windows are draped in black; black-
robed, pale, sad-visaged' men move
silently and' slowly hither and thither, the hour for the1 annual expiation"
of the crime committed by their 'an'
ccstors is at hand.
They are handsome men', thefce Por-

grief is deep, sincere, ami to be

beside Persians; Turkish Mohammedans and long, white-bearded im-
aums, and a sprinkling of Europeans,
Including a few ladies." No Mohammedan., women are present.
Wo are gravely conducted to an upper room 'of a-house ,in „the wall.
The windows, iron-barred -outside
and descending to the floor, are open, and lying down wo command , a
complete view of the whole of the
proceedings. . '
Presently, there is a,slight stir.
The Persian Ambassadors has arrived, and with his suite is conducted
to a kiosk at one side of' the mosque.- Then, the square is cleared, the
lmaums collect on the steps of the
mosque, and simultaneously the wail
of funereal music reaches us. Purple
banners'' black banners, , green' banners, and one white, with inscriptions" on them, all o'f silk, the sum-'
mit .of the-staff of each surmounted
hand, the-fingers outstretched to heaven. Then comes
the band, consisting of'a few flageolets, drums and cymbals. The music,'
of six bars only, repeated again
and again," affrights the ear with its
dissonance, yet it conveys to ' the
bearer a sense of unutterable sah-
Behind the band comes ' some, fifty
men in ""double" rank, but far apart",
dressed ib^ black, the left breast
bare, and at the end of each bar of
tlie music they strike the left breast
with the right hand, keeping perfect
time. "Has-san! Hus-sein! Ah!"
they wail. Following them, still a
greater number of men in black, with
bared shoulders, and armed with
bunches of steel chains attached to
short handles; -and" with the regular
swing of a, dumb-bell exercise they
smite themselves over each shoulder
alternately, keeping time with the
music. "Hassan! Hussein! A-li!" a
blow -for each name.

nearly all 'the dervishes complete th«
circuit, but some few drop, an*
these, as a special honor, pcrhapf

Ambassador before they "are removed.
Still 600 more remain to perforii
the horrible rite in batches of 200

Germans Made  Them  for  Chinese,
and..Were Never Paid.
A rcculiar feature of  tho     Russian
defence of Port Arthur is the history
attached to  some  of  the heavy guns
Which    arc at present  in  the     forts.
Tlicso guns   were   sold  originally   to
the Chinese  authorities-by a German
firm,     shortly '   before   .   the     Boxer
trouble,  when  the   Chinese were  buying arms on every available occasion.
They  bought  on  the  throe-year    system, paid    so much  down,  and     the
balance   divided     between  tho   second
and   third  year.     The   firm  had     to
pay  the    regular  "cumshaw"   to  the
lower officials out of the money they
received   the   first   year.     The     guns
were delivered at once, and deposited
in  the Shiku  Arsenal, where Admiral
Sir     Edward     Seymour     made     his
grand stand with  his wounded,  when
returning from his futile endeavor to
rescue  the     Pekin  Legations.     Some
of these guns    were not even unpacked.     Before the second  nnd third instalments  were  paid,  fighting began,
and    the guns  were  captured  by  the
Allies,  and  handed  over to the  Russians for custody.    The Russians always    seem     to Have    men to  take
charge  of anything,   and  they     tSok
such great care of these guns  in the
S'hiku   Arsenal  that   they  were     sent
over  to  Port  Arthur;     so  that     although  Germany has not received   a
penny for the honest work done     in
her country, she. has unwittingly provided Russia  with  the means to  defend Port Arth-uv

Two hundred men follow, armed
now with gleaming yataghans, which
they wave as they wail, "Has-san !
Hus-sein! A-li !" Their frenzy increases, and an old priest, who is
apparently leading, sind encouraging
them, gets his throat cut; but this
is ,an accident, and he is attended to
on the spot. Once around the
square, headed by torch-bearers,
carrying gigantic forches, flaming
high aloft, this weird nroccssion
moves, an'd the square is now lined
by Turpish troops with fixed bayonets. The bayonets arc not fixed
for ornament, but for the purpose of
instantly transfixing any dervish who

A  writer in  an 'English  review   expresses  the     opinion  that  if,   for     a]
while, men could take, over all house-j
keeping duties, keeping women entirely  out  of  domestic  management,  the.J
ensuing  revolution   would   s>olvo     the
servant problem.    By planning overy- '
thing on business lines about  60 per
cent,  of the present.' labor  would   bo

labor-saving 'devices in use at present

there  are .plenty more of those beneficent ideas , on tap in the masculine
brain only    awaiting an  opportunity
for  realisation.       Mon, do  not     havo'
the same troubles with their employes
that women    do  with their servants,
says the    writer,  and it  would     not
take the    mighty    masculire intellect
very long to ..do away with  tho   servant  question entirely.
Wo are inclined to agree with tho
writer to this extent: that after " a

and no servant either, writes Rob-,

All other persons have thu power,  and rt was never intended to deny it  to tho King, but it has come about,  curiously enough, thiough the opcia-  tion of the other understanding just  mentioned \  It is tho fir=t piina;>lo of English  law that there can be 110 vviong without a icmedy If a man at any time  is wrongfully arrested ho has his  temody against the peison ai testing  him in in action foi false impusonmcnt Butjio could not bung such  an action against tho King, because '  His Majesty can do no wi ong Therc-  foie, in this case ^thoic might be a  wrong without/a lcrredv, which Iho  law^ will not allow The Co?istitu-  tion thinks that tho Lest way of tins  most awkward difficulty ,isHo instinct all Kings that on no account .  must   they      an est   anyone,   which   is  J    '  3 **���  Ol  QUEER SIDIJF HNGSBIP  HIS    MAJESTY  KING EDWARD  .  AND THE  CONSTITUTION".  Weie   He to Follow  Out  Its Rules  He Would Speedily  Collapse.  It is tho general impiession that,  within the very broadest limits, the  King of this realm can do jiist what  he likes, which, in Ihcoiy at all  events, is just what ho cannot do,  says London Tit-Bits It Ti-s Maios-  ty wore lo do all the things ho is  supposed to do, and which it is spoci  ficiallv laid down in the niles ol the  Constitution ho must do, his lilo  would be quite unheal able he would  n"vci have a minute ot time foi his  own purposes, ho would get no sleep,  and he would speedily collajj��e Vet,  accotding lo tins tyrannical Constitution he would nevci die, for it is  .specially set foi th tlvit the King docs  not do so, but that the' office merely  passes from ono person to anothei  The utmost that it will ovei admit  is that theie may be a -'demise of  tho  Crown "  It is demanded bv tho Constitution  tliat the Knir shall be picsent at every sitting of Parliament, and it maybe news to some people that His  Majesty is alwavs supposed lo be  there This little diflicultv is got  over by his piescnce being understood  though it is not actual. Xn the same  way the Kincc is declared to bo present every day when the Law Courts  arc sitting, in each one of the com Us  and! at the same time  In this case it is ndt mciely held  that the judges lepiesent the King,  it is said that he is there himself,  and this fiction  is necessary  FOR  MANY  PURPOSES  If an  ordinary   person   weie  to bring  an action a/'amsl any other and  did  done accoidingly  . Another singular fact is that the  King of this countt v, in the eyes of  the Constitution, never has any  youth Ho is never lecognrzed as  ovei having been le<-s thvn of full  age, and if he ascended the tin one  at tincc \eai.s of age it would bo ae-  clatocl that he had already achieved  man's obtate.
