The Future Popular Method  of Gold Mmins"-'  J!''  i1  f .I'vl u lew fii.iiids recently  visited ihe dredge and' powc-i plant  . of the Birti-sh-Auieiican Dr'cdgiur;  Company, and'as so much interest  has bee.i manifested by ihc Atlin-  itos, as well'as by many eastern  people, I concluded if a hule light  vveie tin own on the subject ol  diedging ii would be appreciated,  and so the general manager of the  company', Mr. O'. T. Svvitzer, compiled the following :  The difficulties I had with the  ele.niicnl equipment of ttic power  plant last year have been overcome  by bringing in an expert direct  from the West in~g house people in  Pittsburg. I also brought a water  wheel expert irora the Stillwell  Bierce people of Dayton, Ohio, who  rendjusted the wheels-, and they are  liow in pei feet condition, and as  soon as water can be obtained to  fill the pond for the floating of the  dredge,1 operations will be commenced. '"     -  - \  Gold dredging has irr fact reached  the dignity"of an industry. .Eight  \ ears ago, dodging foi gold'in this  country was practically unknown.  Today, thousands of acres of dredging land are being dug each month.  . During this comparatively short  time the development of the gold  dredge has gone ahead with rapid  strides until now the dredge has  reached a state of perfection that  has lifted dredging for gold from an  experimental basis to the plane of  sound business.  The underljing reason for the  general success of gold dredging is  that by the use of sound expeit  judgment the value of a property  can be asceitained to a practical  certainty before any mone\ is spent  other than for prospecting. Whether or rrot a piece of ground is suitable for dredging is determined by  physical conditions. To begin with,  the deposit nmsl be the result of a  great flow of heavy gravel where  the drainage area has been large  and the "feeders" good. . The  present creeks or streams which  cut through the gravel deposit do  not necessarily bear any relation to  the original deposit. It must be  practically flat lying and the values  must be disseminated oi-er a wide  area.  The attraction of gold dredging  is that ihe entire investment can be  closely figured. The price of the  property and the cost of the dredge  mid equipment are known quantities. The cost per yard of handling  a definite quarrtity of gravel per  month can be accurately estimated.  Therefore, the commercial value of  a dredging property can be accurately measured.  Almost  without exception, suc  cessful die Iging is earned on, not  in the rivers, but ou the benches  contiguous thereto. In most cases  a -pit is dug inland and the hull'of  the dredge is floated irr it. Very  little wnler is lequued to float the  diedge and to operate it, as the  water which is pumped for wasliii g  puip>scs* comes back to the pit.  The amount oi watei is determined  by seepage and the cleanness,of the  gravel dngv -  The dredge ol the present day is  the' endless chani^ An endless  chain of buckets is canied ou ioiler j. resting on a steel ladder. The  Tipper pai t of this ladder is hinged  on a gantry frame about twenty  feet above the deck of the dredge.  Tire lower end of the ladder is suspended b\ cables, which pass over  sheaves to a drum ou a winch, so  that the ladder may be laised or  louered to feed the buckets The  buckets pass over tumblers at the  upper and lower ends of the ladder'  The power to drive the bucket line  is applied at the "upper tumbler  through gears The material, "as  exfeavated by the. buckets, is  dumped into a hopper and from  this hopper is ,fed_ to levolving or  shaking screens. Water under  ures^ure is forced from spray pipes  .over the screens on to the travelling  Lfr^el: The gold-bearing material  ���passes through the screens-into a  distributor, which feeds this- material and watci'to tables piovided  with "ruffles. These tables in turn  discharge iuto'side or tail sluices,  which depositthe fine tailings well  behind the" dredge.  1 It takes horse-power^ to mine  gravel. It takes more horse-power  to dig tight giavel than it does to  dig "loose gravel. To dig large  quantities of gravel jou must have  large quantities of power. This  question of hoisc-power behind the  bucket line is the determining one  for size of shafting and stiength of  digging machinery. As a fundamental proposition, the machinery  must be designed to withstand the  maximum pull which can be exerted by the driving machinery. If a  oire hundred horse-power motor is  driving the > buckets, the strain  must be figured not to withstand  the normal' pull of -this motor, but  tire, greatly increased pull as the  motor slows.down to the stalling  point.. To this figure add the  strain resulting from the surging  of the dredge when digging tight  gravel.  Variable speed motors have been  introduced to give better control  of the machinery and to regulate  thespeed ofthe bucket chain.  An important function of the  dredge is saving the gold, and on  dredges is comparatively easy. In  the first place the coarse material  has bean removed by the screens  and the finer gold-bearing sands  are distributed evenly over a series  of tables where the .supply of water  can   be    regulated.     Iuimadiately  undei the screen, where the fine  m'ttiial diops in llnu 'Streams-, is  the bes1 place lo save the gold Ii*  general practice, eighty-five per  ctnt ofthe clean-up is-made under  the ��cn.ens, and the percentage of  las.-* 'on a dredge rs lemarkably  Miia 11 The gold saving milled  area on a diedgc is maclicallv r,2'rio  square led.      -  -    < -   '  ������  ,It is useless to predict wlfat the  future has nf stoie foi: gold diedging, so rapidly has the industty developed within the hs,t two years.  Tire improvement rs steady and the  field - is constantly increasing.  Ground is being handled today  that two >cars'ago was placed out  of the possibility of dredges. ISIot  only^can harder, coarser deposits be  handled, but the depth to which  the machines can attain is' con-  stantly increasing. Under ordinary conditions, a bank 20 feet above  wate'r level can be handled. One  year ago the greatest depth reached  was 45 feet below the water level.  There are now in course of con-  struction .on c/uba' River, near  Marysville, htwo dredges which'will  dig 6o~feet below the water level.  Through this development, thousands ot acres of srround'have been  added to the.drerU/ing ,field, which  a \ear ago wer^v^medjOutsidethe  economical limits. As the development of ihe industry continues, I  feel certain that tremendous areas  of low-grade ground will be ren-  deied available for profitable dredging. Instead of'the field of gold  diedging becoming smaller, it is  growing larger and larger each  year. I remember a year or two  ago it was generally considered  that the Oroville district was practically the only field for larger  dredging operatiorrs. Today the  proved successful dredging field  extends from Alaska to Mexico.  In Central Mexico, South America  and Africa have dredging operations been started. In fact, in all  countries wheie placer mining has  been successfully carried on, the  dredge is sure to follow.  Gold dredges arc operating successfully in the United'Stales���in  Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Colorado and New Mexico ; in the state  of California, gold dredging has  been carried on to its highest development. At Oroville, Cal.,' there  are twenty-six dredges operating ;  aud in Montana last year a dredge  was operating with the thermome-  tor forty degrees below zero.  Dredging for gold has become a  mechanical and a commercial proposition. As an investment it is  one of the safest in the business  werld. It will become more and  more attractive as the industry develops, and the returns demanded  by capital so invested will riot be  greater than in ordinary commercial  enterprises.  W. G.

One of tho most important problems  *hat presents itself to the fanner is  'how to put his occupation on a good  practical, business basis.

A.   AVillson.  One of tho most frequent losses that  occur is that of time and labor  through' laelc of proper arrangement  of the farm. A great deal of thought  is oftentimes given to thc"planning of  the future house or burns, but not  always to tho plan of the farm. Although we see many farms that have  -very neat fences, and show in a general way the progressivenoss of tho  owner, yet almost invariably they arc  so. planned that tlie lanes "pass i down  the"centre lino of tho farm with   al-  To  A  SPRING MESSAGE.  All- Who  Are  Weak,      Easily.  Tired and out of Sorts.  Spring should bo the most joyous  season of tho yea-. It is the harbinger of sunshine, and birds anil  flowers; it breathes of freedom and  out-of-door life. But unfortunately  there aro,-thousands who cannot enter into the spirit of the season.  Close confinement "'during the long  winter, months has.left them weak,  dispirted rind oppressed; the appetite  is fickle; the blood is sluggish with  impurities; tho eyes lack tho lustre  of health; weariness and lassitude  have taken the place of vigorous eh-  ergy. ' What is needed at this season  by such peoplo is a health-renewing,  blood-making tonic���something that  will send new, rich red blood coursing through the veins, bring brightness to tho eye, a healthy appetite,  and a clear skin ,frco from pimples  and eruptions.  Ill all tho world there is nothing  can' do this so effectively and so  thoroughly , as Dr. Williams I'ink  Pills. Every close creates now blood,  strengthens the nerves, and up-builds  the whole body. Here is a bit of  strong proof, given by Mr. John  Burke, of Elmsdalo, P. E. 1.. who  says :���"I  was left  an  almost hope  most perfectly square fields lying    on  each side.

Tf a farm  '   is    oblong in      shape     the buildings  should never  be placed "at  one      end  .or a corner whore it is possible"   to  '"place them at tho centre of one side.  , The  ideal^, location   of the. buildings  for economy's sake would be at    the  _ centre of the farm, but the home and  ' social side'of life on    the farm must  '���be (Considered as well.  There is no place of residence that  offers the advantages for making the  * home surroundings  beautiful  as  that  Qf the fanner  except perhaps  among  rustic  mountain     scenery.        Usually  there  is      such      an   utter .disregard  among   our  farmers   of their  immediate surroundings,  which should go  to  make farm homes beautiful and pleasant, that 1 cannot refrain from making a few'suggestions here as.to the  improvement  of  our  homes.     It      is  too'often   'true,      that the farmer's  home is  devoid  of many of ,thc  little  things      that go    to make tho  home  surroundings     cheerful   and   homelike  and  yet  they  will  wonder  why their  -hoys and girls will  leave  the      farm  for places more beautiful in tho city.  The farmer has such chances for landscape, gardening  as   the ,city  resident  has not because of more room which  lie has.

''  '  A mixture of grain will always,give  better results than any, single variety  fed alone, If any pea's are to be fed  it is good practice to keep them until tho close of tho feeding period.  When cattle are put on a heavy ration. of grain ��� they will' make rapid  gains for a time, probably lor , two  months, and then they' seem to come  to a standstill and make little or no  improvement. A number of them go  off their feed and the, feeder gets himself into all sorts of trouble.- The  point to be determined is not the  amount of grain that wo can got an  animal t'o consume, but" the amount  ho is able to digest and,assimilate. '  No other grain will put so good  a finish on cattle as peas. A little  pea meal fed during tho last month  seems to firm the cuttle up and make  them handle and weigh just a little  better than, anything else J know,  hut they are such strong feed, and  so hard to digest that they cannot  usually bo fed with advantage for  more than five or six weeks unless  it be in very small quantities. Rogu-  larity is one of the -first principles of  good  feeding.  An important matter is to make  tho cattle comfortable and induce  them to lio_ down as much as possible, allowing no one"to disturb them  except at feeding time, A mist/iko of  which many of us have been guilty is  that of tying up more cattle than  wo, could-food, and bed properly; so  that wo wore compelled to use a lot  of straw for feed- that we should havo  used for bedding. Straw that is'  musty or-damaged in any, way will  make more beef wheii used' for bed-,  ding than when eat up and'forced on.  the cattle ��� by "mixing' with the" better"  feed.  A man should so plan his work  that it will always be .done at tho  right time, and yet, he should never  be in a hurry and never out of patience. A rough, noisy, blustering  man is worse than useless on a cattle  farm. There is no royal road to success in cattle raising; it is the attention to, or neglect- of, the apparently trifling details that makes  for success or  failure. '.

Somehow one always hears with  regret that one of England's famous  old moss grown, ivy clad inns is  about to bo demolished, says the  London Mail. The Old King of  Prussia hostelry is the latest to  pass into the house-breakers' hands.  This old inn is iii Finchley, and from  1757, when the place was built, until the present' day, the license has  been in the keeping of ono family���  perhaps a record in the licensing annals  of England. '���  Tho Old King of Prussia is a ���picturesque half timbered house, and  many a noted highwayman has partaken of its hospitality. Tho grandfather of tho present proprietor was  quite a noted character, having vanquished several notorious highwaymen on Finchley common. It is on  record that ho once had ah encounter  with  Dick 'J'urpin.  Hound and ubout . Loudon and its  ever extending suburbs'there may  still be seen inns and taverns of  great age and interesting associations.  The "Ansel Inn, Highgatc Hill,  dales back to tho time of tho Ro-  I'ormation. Originally it was called  the Salutation Jim. Jt is built entirely  of wood.  'Another famous inn is the llnld-  Fnced Stag at Edgware. Nobody  knows when It was originally v built,  and it would seem as though' each  successive proprilor has endeavourod  to place his mark on its architectural aspect, for many parts of it  have evidently at different times  been rebuilt. In tlie stables, it is  alleged, Dick Turpin had his horse's  shoes turned, so as to make his pursuers imagine he had gone in an opposite direction.  Among tlie very oldest of suburban London inns aro tho Plough at  Kingsburg Green and the King  James and Tinker Inn at Enfield.  Tho first is said to bo 85,0 years old,  and the latter was reputed, to have  boon'first built as an inn-and under  another name 992 years ago.  Its present name is derived from  an encounter which King James I..  is said to have, had with a tinker at  (ho door of the inn. The tinker's  conversation    so  pleased     the   King  It opens its eyes and closes (hem  again and rubs its fists into them.  It tries to-roll over; it stretches its  arms out, and it stretches its legs.  It wakes up in a very leisusely  way. You arc not sure it really is  awake until it begins to cry, which  is a signal that it wants to be  taken up.  A good natured baby will wako up  and laugh.     This is the healthy way  of wakening in the morning.     if you  are    healthy,   and if you arc    good  natured,   you    will  wake up   slowly,  stretch - and    yawn,     und   begin      to  laugh.      That is  the  proper  way  to  awaken.  Hero  are  a few  wake-up don''s :  Don't    wake up worrying.      Ganish  care     from your   mind.

You       will  crush  your  fal-lals  if you  don't  lake  '    care."  She   knelt,     or. rather   huddled,   on  the door in mute misery,  as ho busied" himself  with    her packing,  folding  skirts  and  skilfully  depositing    boot-  '  trees.  Jn   a  few   minutes  ho   looked  round  with   a  brisk  inquiry:,  "Ts  that all?"  "Yes���thank you."  "I may strap it up then."  The lid of tho trunk shut down' with  a prolonged creak.  Ho set,,his knee against it and fas-  toned the strap securely; She scrambled to her foot and took up her ha't  from, the dressing table. As she adjusted it, the black feathers nodded  with a dismal effect above her suffering ,whitc face and hollow eyes.  She had no jewels to tear off    and  fling on the table, like the heroine of  ,    a no\;cl.    They were not rich.  Beside' her wedding-ring she only  wore ono other, that would never  leave her finger, rt is just womanhood that she could turn her back on  him���and cling, as to an anchor, to  his little forget-me-not ring.

His creed appealed to  the better side of her nature, to a  nobility of soul that just fell short of  surrender.  "Whore  arc you going?"  "To'flnd a  lodging."  There had dwelt a "hope in tho background   that   ho would  exert  his  authority, thwart her intention to abandon  him.

As well ask tho  millstones to show these to the grain  it ground. He would make his own  terms with her, or none. She , had  no further pretext  for lingering.  As she moved he took the cause of  their quarrel from an inner pocket of  his coat and gave it into her keeping.  It was a square packet, doiie up in  white paper, with the words���"My secret" written across it in his characteristic handwriting, and secured by  a great red splash of sealing-wax,  sealed with his own seal, a mailed  hand.  "Take it with you," he said scornfully.     "When   your     curiosity  grows  unbearable you  may  break  the     seal  and view the contents���but that will  be the end.     You don't mistake  me?  Tho symbol    of a     dead     faith may  stand for a ���dead love, too."  -Ho opened the door for her.  She put out an uncertain hand     ,to  him, but it slid down untouched      by  her side.  "You will not bid mc 'Good-bey'?"  "No."-he said gravely; "it is    you  who are bidding me 'Good-bye.' "  An hour later there was nothing  left her but to face her life without  him.  There had been no dilTicultyin finding a lodging. Her sweet face and  voice had appealed to the first landlady she accosted, and she had crept,  thankfully into a small, unlovely  room ont of the chill'November fog.  The room was in a street of the  same locality as her home���a stone's  throw away from peace, happiness,  and him. '   ,  - But peace and happiness had been  destroyed by licr find that morning,  and he���had hidden something from  her all these months. The words,  "Sly secret," danced before her eyes  as she crouched over the lire in the  unfamiliar room that, was hers for  to-night.. She had only taken il for  so long, in a desire to get out of the  London , streets so that she could  think, and plan her future. ''The rent  of the small ,room was beyond her;  it had already (paid in advance)  made a serious hole in her little sum  of money.

How to Treat a Sprain.���When      a  sprain   occurs   lose   no   time   in      attending to it, however trivial it may  appear.        Ascertain, whether      there  has been a fracture or dislocation. If  so send for a physician  as soon     as  possible, and keep perfectly-quiet until he arrives.    If there is no feacture  or  displacement  of   bones,   but    'only  excessive    swelling   about  the    joint,  bathe tho injured member in hot water  as  long  as  possible..   Bathe,  for  15   to  .'10   minutes,   renewing  tlie  water occasionally, and .applying with a  sponge.    Then wrap the injured member in'strips of flannel saturated with  hot water, and cover with dry cloths.  Ho not use the sprained member until  recovered.'

To Seal Letters so that they Cannot be Opened.���Steam or hot water  will open envelopes closed with mucilage and oven a wafer; a hot iron or  ai spirit-lamp dissolves sealing-wax,  an impression in plaster having been  taken'of tho seal. By the' combined  use of water and sealing-wax, however, all attempts to open the letter  otherwise than by force can be .frustrated. All that is necessary is to  close the letter first with a small,  well-moistened wafer, and to pierce  the letter with a coarse needle (the  same applies to mucilage), whereupon  sealing-wax maybc-used upon it in  tho usual manner.

As he stood there, Philip thought of  all that they had done .for him. Hut  ' i for Matthew Meade's beautiful charity to an orphaned child-waif, what  might his lot have been ?

Tot  he   must   now be  a nameless,  - kinloss man; his hi-,1 forlorn hopo  that he might discover his own  origin in looking through Mr.  Meade's papers was gone. He decided once for 'all to think no more  of his dubious .origin,' from the  knowlodgo of which, in spite of his  efforts to learn it, he shrunk, fearing  dishonor.   Ho felt  that he ought   to  , know, but since he had failed to find  out from Matthew Meade, he would  lomain henrefoi th ignorant. But for  tho Med ways, the secret would have  died with Mr. Meade. ~ Something  more than pride or fear restrained  him fiom consulting Sir Arthur  Medway, who would probably con-  , elude that Matthew Meade had told  him all-theio was to know on his  coming to man's estate. And, after  all, if there were any profit in knowing, they would suiely have told  him before.  AIL who had cared for him and his  orphan sister lay there beneath the  turf; he must carve out a place in  life of his  own.  "My loss 'was greater  than yours,  Jessie,"   he   said,      after a long silence;" "I owed them more."  >   "Yes,"   she      replied,     looking   up  from hor flowers with a faint smile.  "And   I  often   thought  they      cared  "most    for you.-      Especially    "father.  They were so proud of you*"  "And I such a beast,"-he thought.,  Then he asked Jessie to renew the  death-bed promise;  and they clasped  hands solemnly over the graves,-and  - he put" a ring on her finger.",  "Oh ! Phi.ip," she exclaimed, when  they turned to leave the spot, "if is  an opal  ling."  "Don't you like opals ?" he asked.  "I thought you did; that is why I  chore them."  "Ah ! but the bad luck !"  "Foolish child," he said, tenderly,  his heart going out to her in a rush  of pitying love, "how can a true-  love gift.be unlucky ?"  They sat alone together in Mrs.  Pluiumcr's house till late that night,  counting the minutes. Next morning  they drove together to Cloeve station  whence Philip staited for Dover, on  his way  to  India.  Jessie stood on the platform, by  the carriage-door with him till the  last moment; every tick of the station clock seemed to beat some life  out of their throbbing hearts; , they  held each other's hands, and \vhen  the last boll clanged and their hands  were forced apart, tlio jangling  strokes crashed on the two bruised  young hearts. The engine panted  away, Philip looked back till the  bend of the road swallowed him up  ���vand ho could no longer sec Jessie,  and the yearning gazo of each was  met by vacancy.  Then Cousin Jane, who had been  standing at a bookstall showering  teais upon the monthly magazines,  came bustling forward and bid Jessie  mako haste homo to Miss Blush-  ford's.  "He'll wiilc from Dover to-night,"  she said, "nnd that you'll hov tomorrow. Then at Calais he's to  write, and at Paris. Dear, dear,  what expense he'll be at with postage to be sine. Look up, Jessie,  look up, 'tisn't many of our sort can  bo engaged to a iine young officer  like Philip."  Jessie did not heed, she saw nothing but Philip's vanishing face; it  seemed an if horL life had been violently wrenched from its place.  As for Philip, ho felt that all that  was most vital in him was left behind with Jessie, while he rushed on  aimlessly into a blank, homeless  void.  Yet one thought (hiobhed g'owing-  ly in his breast; this agony of yearning, this tenacious clinging of the  heart, meant nothing loss than love.  , Ho was quite mirpnow bo should  love her and no oilier to "the end-of  his life.

Happily Cleeve boasted '" w,sh Mlfs Mcn-de to read, less ai  a fair public library to which Mr.   &IV�� morc    t,mc to strictly fern ini  eeaess  for she was-- bereft, if only for a  time, of Fhilip���was too great, she  dared not think of it. ' Occupation  was her great panacea. She had  always done her school-tasks easily  if unwillingly, she now manifested a  hunger for knowledge, a hunger that  Miss 'Blushford was unable to appease by the genteel fringes of knowledge     and    the flimsy  "accomplish  men   bill  of a fair public library  Oheesemnn was a suhsciiber, and, in  that  library,   which  was   little  troubled by the corn-dealer himself,  Jcs'-  ii�� pastured at 'will.  She had never dreamed that the  universe was so wide, so wonderful,  so looming with interest���life seemed  worth living in spile of the shadows  darkening it. Ono happy day she  lighted on the "Fairy Qucenc," then  sho discovered Chaucer; Shakespeare,  .duly Bowdlerized, had been ..presented  to her , in driblets in the school  course, and was now commended to  her in seven expurgated, calf-bound,  musty volumes by Miss Blushford,  who was in blissful ignorance of  Chaucer's infinitely direr need of a  Bowd'er.  Mi<-s Blushford had been 'too much  cdi/lod  at finding hor pupil anything  moio solid    than    a story-book,     to  look for, rocks ahead in books    that  bore' tlie    respectable, word    history  on their backs;  tho ologics and ono-  mies inspired  her with confidence;  it  was not until the sad day when sho  found   Jessie    poring over  a   a large  volume   insciibcd   with   the  alarming  name of Byron,   that she awoke    to  tie duty of tasting  the child's mental food.     Byron, carefully shrouded  in brown  paper,  lost respectable citizens should be scandalized by seeing  him '   borne   ' openly   through    their  streets,   was promptly, icturned      to  tho dusty shelf on which he had long  moulc'o cd by Miss Blushford's    own  correct     hands,     and    the   works of  Cowpcr we.c given to Jessie in compensation; she was further bidden to  denote    more    time   to her "accomplishments," and in'   particular     to  paint  a group .of flowers  on velvet,  and do seme wool-work for the sofa.  , Poor Miss  Blushford !      The  evening following     the      procession     of  Byron  to  his  dusty   'seclusion    was  not a happy one for ,her.  The gills were gone to bod, the assistant   .teacher     was spending      an  evening out, and she was alone with  her parlor boarder,  who was apparently taking the  opportunity of improving her mind by instructive conversation.      Miss Blushford had conversed  with fluent    urbanity    about  an hour in reply to  Jessie's     timid  questions     on     history,     literature,  science, and art,     under   the impression  that she was filling her listener's  mind  from  her  own  superabundant  stores" of  knowledge,   when  all  of a sudden it flashed upon' her that  she  was playing     the part,  not'    of  philosopher to  disciple,  but ot pupil  to examiner.     Miss Blushford quickly turned the conversation to lighter  themes, and Jessie stitched thoughtfully    vat    the  abhorred wool-work,  wondering if Miss Blushford's colossal ignorance were normal in schoolmistresses. ���  Miss Blushford was a good woman  and loved Jessie, who loved her in  teturn. She was about fifty, up-  light, thin, exact, self-denying, timid and ligid. What intellect she ever  possessed had been worn away in  mill-hoise drudgery and.petty anxieties, what little knowledge sho over  acquired fritteied away in constant  moohanical repetition to her pupils.  Her school had a good reputation,  it was select. Jessie had with gicat  difficulty and much heart-searching  been admitted to'it; it was expensive  and yet Miss Blushford was poor.  And she had nothing put by for old  age or sicl:ne:s. She was'a lonely  woman, yet she had many to support.  In mo^t families thcie is ono hclp-  le.<-s member dependent on the rest, il  was to   with   the     BJushfords;      one  daughter  was imbecile, Miss    Blushford supported her in a private house  One   male   Blushford  had  failed    in  business nnd   passed   his prime     In  hunting for   odd   jobs,   looking      for  commissions,   and   holering on    the  verge     of   bankruptcy,   whence Miss  Blushfoid  perpetually  plucked     him;  she  educated  Ids  nine children     and  set them out   in life.      Hor father's  second family she also educated and  set out  in  life,  and  supported      her  stepmother till her  death.   No wonder Miss Blushford  was poor.     Her  older     brothers     were men of    suT>-  stunce, it is true, but they had families      whom     they could not    rob.  Her sister "Icept her..-.carriage,'.'   and  was     ashamed- to  own poor JBessie,  but no help  was  forthcoming    from  her;  it was preposterous to suppose  that    her    husband    would rob his  children    to   support his wife's relations ! So Bessie,   upon      whose  youth  one   golden beam of romance  had      fallen,  renounced the husband  and children  and carriage that   sho  might have had, and drudged on, in.  most prosaic,   unrecognized heroism,  to     maintain   the helpless members,  winning     little but tho contempt .of  all in return.  "I wonder  what   poor Bessie   will  do      now ?"  the family said,      when  anybody came to grief.  But Jessie knew of Miss Blushford  only that she was ignorant, narrow,  so she chofx-d against her yoke, ,os  her own natiue exuandod. After tho  Byron episode. ,,Mjss Blushfoid began telling her pupil tbnt it was un-  feminine as well as unladylike,, to  read much; it was particularly unladylike to have strong feelings; more  unladylike still to wish to bo' independent and- work for btcad (which  Jessie'began to hint she should like'  to  do).  "May I never do anything because  1 like it ? Must I only do what  men like me to do ?" Jessie asked. -  ,''Ceitainly, my dear,"'Miss Blushford replied, with her little didactic  air; "it is unfeminine to have strong  likings. Gentlemen always know  what is truly feminine and ladylike.  Sweetness, submission, unselfishness  aie the chief qua'uics requiied of  females.      Mr.  Philip Randal     justly  me :  nnd  pursuits, such as needle-work, dancing, housekeeping, and accomplishments' "���such was Mif-s Blushford's  translation of Philiv's request that  Jossie should not be made to learn  too much. "Gentlemen dislike bluestockings. - Ladies of superior attainments should-always endeavor 1o  conceal them, Test they should be  .deemed  unfeminine."  "I suppose,  Miss  Blushfordl"  said  Jessie,  "that   ,it     matters    nothing  what  women   think,   the great  point  is what people, think of them."  "Quite so,  my love." " .    -  "Their conduct should be entiiely  ruled by public opinion?" continued  Jessie,- with a curious 'glitter of her  eyes.  "in everything, my sweet girl," returned Mi.s- Blushford, pleased at  signs of grace in her charge.  After this Jessie read with more  ardor, but less .candor. She did not  hesitate to deceive Miss,Blushford by  false coveis to her hooks, most of  which she Icept in-a hiding-place she  had discovered under the roof-tiles  opening from her bedroom. Here also  she kept a store of smuggled candles  and matches, which she iised to light  her studies after her candle had been  icmoved from her room. Was it not  lawful^ to conceal things from children? 'Jessie argued; why, then,  should a grown-up baby "like Miss  Blushford, however amiable, know  all that she did ? - <*  The   pupils   came little in  contact'  with Jessie, and when they did,    regarded her-with no sense of    fellows-hip.   As a parlor-boarder and grown  up  young-lady,   they  looked  up     to  her,  while the fact of her being   engaged,  and especially engaged to    a,i  fine young. officer, invested, her  with  all tho glamour of romance. ,A letter  fiom    Philip  created    a   flutter      of  pleasant'    excitement    in  the house,  unlike ,tlio pupils' letters,  it was inviolate; Hiss Blushford actually .'dared not open it.      The letters     came  fast and thick at first; Philip dotted  them    all along his route,  whenevcr  he    found a   post-office.       "My own  Jessie���My    precious   child���My darling," they began, and were all'heartbreak and tenderness, but slightly relieved with sketches of travel as far  as 'Calcutta, where they settled down  into'"Deaiest Je-.sie," and so     con'  tinued at" that affectionate  level.  Jessie's letters were of necessity  fewer, since she could not dot them  along Philip's route; they too were  at first tender and full of heartbreak, but lesigned and meek: they  lacked the stormy revolt of Philip's;  gradually the tenderness and 'heartbreak faded out, of them, and the  letters on both sides became chronicles of what befell each, mingled  with requests on Jessie's part and  good advi"e by way-of answer from  Philip. Almost immediately after he  started for India, tho news of the  Meerut and Dclni outbreaks thundered through-England, to bo followed  by still more tragic tidings throughout the summer  and  autumn.  As each tragic episode in the drama of the Mutiny unfolded itself and  was told in England with all the  exaggeration of fear, mystery, pity,  and indignation, a sort of madness  seized upon the people, to whom  the knowledge that Chiistian women  and children of their own race "wero  slaughtered and tortured by that  inferior and subject heathen race  they had been accustomed to hold so  cheaply, was a horror beyond endurance. War, which to other na-  tiors means invasion and tho suffering, if not tho slaying, of women and  justly, and loved mercy even in that  awful  tempest.  Jessie,'in tho conventual seclusion  of her school, where newspapeis were  rare, heard little of these things;  she did not reali7o the awfulness of  tho crisis; she had grown accustomed  to war in the'Crimean days, and  feared comparatively little for Philip  even when she know him to be in the  thick of "the fighting. Had he not  already tried the fortune of war ?  But in those rare occasions when  she mingled with the outside world,  she was horror-struck at the way in  which people talked of "those block,  devils," and one or two passionate  expressions in Philip's letters made  her shiver and hope they were but  momentary ebullitions; caused by  righteous indignation at the first  hearing of such cruelties as will forever throw a mournful -horror upon  the word Cawnporc. She did not inquire too closely into Indian details;  she dared not let her thoughts' dwell  upon-Philip's danger, any more than  upon her parents' death; she deliberately lulled the emotional side of her  nature to sleep, by continuous strenuous mental occupation. Instinct  told her that madness lay in feeling  JCTo bo Continuod.)  they aro utterly at a loss���unless tlj'ey  are   Cossacks,   Kalmucks   or' Turcomans, accuslomed     from boyhood,    to  picking up  their meals  wherever and  whenever they can find them.  , The      Japanese,   on     the  contrary;  showed  during their  war 'with   China'  a remarkable  ability  to   create, their  transport and commissariat apparently out of nothing as they went along.'  They   did      not  trouble   much   about  bs ggagc trains,  they had them,      to'  be  sure, <well supplied and  well      organized,   but  tho  troops   moved,   . so  quickly that they were out-of   touch  with their wagons"half the time.  They travelled in the lightest possible order and picked up any old native carts or mules or coolies they  chanced to meet, making thorn serve  the necessities of tho moment, and  then letting them go and getting  others further on.   ��� r ���  , THE ONLY DRAWBACK  of tliis system was that as the capi- *  paign advanced the armies becauio  clogged by large numbers of coolies  and other camp followers, who created a great deal of trouble and.* committed excesses, which were wrongfully charged to the'regular troops/   <i  Some of the Japanese commanders  adopted a short way  with those ob-  ncxious persons, driving them out of ���  tha army on pain of death as soon as  thjir services were  over.

Czar's'Soldiers Apt to   Go Hungry  ���The Japanese' Marching  -  Order.   , ��  - The ,war in the East is affording" a  test,of the transport and commissariat systems of Russia and Japan. T  By-the Russian system, an army  corps of 45,900 men is supposed to  be accompanied by 2,400 wagons.  When  , campaigning,,   the  Russian  soldier  is     supposed*    to   carry  two  days' rations on liis person.    The regimental trains carry rations for each  man for      two  days longer,  and  the  divisional     trains for from, two ^ to  four days.     It is reckoned that fresh  supplies should always be obtainable  from   ' the     surrounding .country   or  along tho   ( line 'of    communications  within tho six or eight days allowed.  Tho system    -is a good one,      but"  the transport and commissariat,broke  down   miserably  in* every ^important  war waged by Russia during the last  century.     The experience of tho past  indicates that the  Cossacks' are  rthe  only'Russian  soldiers who  are   'mobile and well fed in a campaign. They  are mobile because they always have  large  numbers  of spare horses���often  two for each man;  they are well fed  because of their skill in foraging.    ,,  Russian     officers spend freely     out  of, their private funds during a  campaign in order to remedy tho defects  of the official transport and commissariat.    They have been obliged      to  do so even during manoeuvres.  The example was set by Skobeleff,  Russia's greatest General of modern  times, during  THE RUSSO-TURKISir WAR.  He -was a rich man, and every rubble  he owned was at the disposal of his  beloved soldiers -when they needed it.  All the officicl . arrangements for  feeding the men and caring for the  sick and wounded broke down utterly, and Skobeleff was always putting  his hand in his pocket through that  campaign. On ono occasion ho spent  15,000 rubbles to charter a steamer  to take a number of wounded men  to Odessa for treatment. lie never  recovered from the1 Government the  largo sums he expended.  When Skobeleff was praised for his  generosity toward his troops, ho re-  p,licd, unaffectedly: '   '  I owe everything to those men,  and the least I can do in to spend  a few thousand rubles to help them  in their need."  That spirit animates most officers  in the Russian army to-day. Gen.  Kouropatlcin, Gen. Grodekoff and  other famous Russian officers trained  under Skobeleff followed his example.  Now it is regarded as the regular  thing in the Russian army for an officer to have to spend money on his  men to remedy officicl shortcomings.  Tt is to be feared that graft has ,a  great deal to do with those shortcomings.  These  defects are, however,  largely  offset by the  , ., , ���.   --,       , .   -��� ,    ,    -.,   ���-.    patient endurance      of  children, the breaking up of    homes,   the Russian soldier, born of his dotr-  with  famine,  lire and pestilence,   has   jjko . '  a milder face for inviolate England,  whoj-'c soldie.'s alone taste its immediate honors. All the prejudices  and sintipiithies of religion, race, and  caste were stung into iiciec vitality  by the suffering and degradation of  helplc.-s English in idin, whose  countrymen at home i\wc,powc: less  lo succor them. A wave of passionate vindiclivcnc-s swept over men's  hearts, an unspectcd trait in the  national chaiactor was brought to  light. .Not only in Tdia, "where their  position was so desperate, but- at  home, where people were maddened  by their impotence, there were loud  cries for vengeance���vengeance alone  in its naked ferocity. Pious clergymen, peaceful laymen, gentle, , lindly  people, did not hesitate to .say that  no reprisals could, be too-severe ior  those monsters of iniquity, a.nd much  that' was only said -with impotent  passion jn England was done with  steadier vindictiveness in India.  It was a ghastly satire on our  boasted progress and civilization; it  might     have been still more ^ghastly:  like  LOYALTY TO THE CZAR.  The American military attache    was  impressed by that quality.  "When his battles result in defeats,  when his "biscuits aro full of maggots, when his clothes aro shabluy,  when his boots drop to pieees, the  Russian soldier," he said, reasons it  all out slowly and can only come to  the conclusion, so pathetic in its simple faith: 'Ah, if the Czar only  knew!'  "Every ono within his reach he  freely discusses, criticizes and blames;  ho half suspects that his Geneials  may be fools, and he is sure that his  commissaries are rascals; but no  thought of censure ever crosses his  mind against the Czar.'V  It is hardly necessary to point out  the value of this mental attitude" as a  military asset.  Tho Russian soldiers appear, as a  general rule, to lack the ability ��� to  shift for themselves in matter's of  transport;.and-commlssariat.   If their  that no similar nuisance should"   be  tolerated in another campaign.  - During tho advance to the relief of '"  the i besieged  legations at  Pekin     the  Japanese   commissary  was,   by  com-   ,  mon agreement of the foreign officers,  better than that of any of the European troops,   and  the  Japanese    soldiers      showed a genius for foraging  and      accommodating their  appetites  to tho food available in the country."  Instead  of  using heavy   wTagons -liable to be bogged or to tire out .the  horses,      the   Japanese    had a great"  number  of light hand  carts.      Theso-'  carts were  drawn by  coolies    or  by  the  soldiers     themselves,   and      they,  were so lightly laden that they' interfered little, if ,at all, with the onobil-    "  ity of the force.      ,  The horse and mule carts were,'- of  the smallest type and lightly , built.' ft  Spare animals      were made  to  carry  their  own fodder, and  that   of  . 'the.   '  other-animals as well.  -"These measures were rendered neces- ''  sary by  the  smallnoss  and   weakness  of  tho      Japanese horses,   which  aro  about the scrawniest animals of their  kind.    The     Russians, on the     contrary,  are well supplied with    largo,     ,  strong,  WELL-BRED  HORSES.    '  In the Turcoman campaigns in .Central.Asia camels wore employed, but  they are hardly ever used to-day - by -  Russian, troops. Thousands of, dogs' ,  aro pressed into service, mainly for  transporting soldiers and supplies' in  sledges across  Lake Baikal..  In tho present campaign the Mikado's fighting man is carrying a great  deal more food with him than his  Russian adversary. Against the lat-  ter's two days' rations he carries two  cooked rations of rice in addition to  six emergency rations. These ��� are  contained in an aluminum mess pan,  and as the rice has boon boiled and  dried in tho sun, the entire weight i?  trifling.  It is commonly suoposed that tho  Japanese soldier lives on rice arid  dried fish, Lut such is not the fact.  He can live, and fight well, on that  spare diet, if necessary; but ho is -  given moat and other sustaining  foods whenever practicable, as ' wel' ^  as beer or saki.    - ' ���  Several years ago  a military commission  was  appointed  by  tho  Mikado to j ascertain  why tho physique    of'  the  Japanese  troops  was inferior  to  that of the British, German and other countries.    Tho commission ^camo  to tho conclusion that beef and beer  helped      to  build     up     the   stalwart    '���-  frames of Occidental fighting men, and  - -  since  then  beef and boor  have    been  included in the diet scale of the Japanese army.  4   ELECTRIC POWER.

The power is generated  by windmills  which have a diameter of about   fifteen  feet,   these    being  mounted     on  the roofs of the works.   To insure its  reliability,  the wind  wheel  itself has  no  moving parts,   the  speed   regulation  being ebtaiued  by  turning    tho  windmill  so  as   to  vary   Ihe      angle  under  which   the wind  strikes     upon  tho  sails,   which     arc   built  of  stool  sheets.   This regulation is performed  by a    small    auxiliary  wind  motor,  and is said to.    be done so   quickly  and accurately that the voltage   ,of  the    dynamo     rornnines    practically  constant    throughout     the range of  ordinary wind    pressure.     An  automatic awitch is     arranged so      that  as soen as the    wind  fails below a  certain  point  the  battery  connected  with the dynamo  is cut out..

The chairman thereupon ^resented Mr. RosselH with a  handsome gold watch  and a testimonial signed by over fifty citizens.  Mr. RosselH  then  rose  and  replied as follows :  I beg to thank you all most cordially for your  very  flattering  address,   and   not   haviug   expected  anything of the kind, must ask you  -to excuse any want of eloquence on  . my part in replying.

Manilla, May -nth-:���Two officers and 39 men ofthe Seventeenth  U. S. infantry regiment were ambushed last Sunday by several  hundred Moros. Two officeis and  15 men were killed and 5 wounded.  St. Petersburg, May 13th :���Both  telegraph and- railroad communication with Port Arthur has been cut  off.  ��� Much -uncertainty exists as to  exactly what is occurring at theatre of war���as-much in regard to  Russian movements as that of the  enemy. General Kuropatkin's  plans -are most careiully guarded,  although he is believed to be concentrating troops near Lio Yang,  very little actual information ou the  subject is obtainable. The general  impression, however, is that heavy  fighting will occur within a fortnight.  The general staff have received  advices indicating that Japanese are  pushing on in South Manchuria  with great energy.  Tokio, May 13th :���Japanese torpedo boat No. 49 was' destroyed  while removing mines north of  Port Dalny yesterday. Seven men  were killed and seven wounded.  This is the first warship Japanese I  have lost during the war.   ��� j  Thlt First Class Hotel hus beoii remodoloil and i-ufiirninlioil tlit oti|>lion'  'and offers tlio bent accommodation to Transient or Permiuioia     _ >  '   Guests.���Aiuoricaii und Kuropetui plun.    -  �� Finest Wines, Liquors and Oigara.    > r  % ��� "/Billiards; and   Pool.'  *  'A  "    P  rl  r y.  ���i  gold   i~iouse;5  DISCOVERY,   B.

Only     about  (women  were reported  as  marry-  setween the ages  of 40 and    41,-  Iperhap.s      Japanese  women      are  like their Western sisters,     to  having     birthdays ,after  they  30.

'*   +   OLD  TIME  SCHOLARS.  Books and Pupils  in  a  School 4,-  000 Years Ago.  Education in the time of King  Hammurabi, some 4,000 years ago,  was in a flourishing condition.. Vincent Schcil, a German archaeologist  recently unearthed a',schoolhousc in  Babylorfjust opposite the great temple. From inscribed books, - inscriptions^ etc., Father Scheil .has .reconstructed the-life of an ancient Babylonian  school.'  The scholars'' sat on the floor in  rows, each -with a soft"brick. On  theso tho small boy engraved tho  difficult cuneiform characters. When  he made them wrong' the teacher  smugged them over, as is attested  by^ several bricks with the thumb  marks plainly visible. In one room  the scholar was taught how to write  the elaborate and highly poetical  forms of adulation which are preserved on monuments. ' Much attention was given, to "weighs and measures, arithmetic and geomctery, but  tho chief branches were grammar,  rhetoric and tho expression of flattering forms.  Girls, it seems! got pretty 'much  tho samo education ns tho boys,  leather Schcil found contracts which  had been rovisod and corrected by a,  woman learned in tlio law, named  Amutbocn.    -,  On. the whole education and civilization uudor King ..Hammurabi wore  ,iu-a very ..advanced .condition.
