These^ reports  are doubled in St. Petersburg.  ' St. Petersburg confirms Saturday's report tlut the Russian battleship, Bogatyr, which went ashore  near Vladivostock, has, been destroyed by Russians to prevent the  vessel passing iuto the enemy's  hands.

It is believed iu St. 'Petersburg  that Geueial Kuroki's army is in  difficulties.  Mukden says the Japanese have  resumed their forward movement.  There are persistent reports at  Mukden of a bloody"battle between  the Japanese army advancing along  the railroad and the Russians near  Kin Chow, resulting in the defeat  of Japanese with gi eat, loss.   *  Small paities of Japanese scouts  have been seen to the north-east of  Mukden. ,    ��� '       "<  A Chefoo despatch says, that''a  portion of Jhe Japanese fleet bombarded Pott Arthur* yesterday  morning.       -      rl> -   v      -   'a'1,  * A message from Tokio s'avs that  283'uou-commissioued��� officers and  ,Russians had madt elab^iate pie-  parations here to check the Japa-  nesV-movement south.

An   attack   on '-Kin   Chen  t  was begun at dawn today and by  noon the city was in the bauds of  the Japanese, who occupied the  castle. Fighting continued during  the afternoon and was of the most  desperate character. It is believed  thecasualties w,ere heavy.

The Cossacks who are operating  on General-Kuroki's line otYcom-  munication aie said to have made  an important capture of some of the  enemy's guns.  Chinese at Chefoo say the Japanese are now within ten miles of  Port Arthur.  MAV   2/TH.  A Tokio despatch to the Japanese legation iu London says that  Kin Chcu and all strategic heights  in the vicinity have been taken by  the Japanese troops, who are pushing the Russians back towards  Port Arthur.  Another Tokio despatch says the  Japanese army swept the Russians  from Kin Chou last night, and in  0 desperate night attack stormed  what were thought by Russians to  b�� almost impxegaable position**  nary Facility.  The-24th of May was' right royally celebrated by the B. A. D. Co.>  ���at noon the power was transmitted to the monster dredge and the  first revolution of its immense  buckets was made. Mr. Woods,  the dredgeman,- i�� a�� interview,  remarked that he had started a  great number of dredges, but in all  his experience he had never known  one to staitwith less difficulty in  regard .to its machinery. - Itran.for  the first time four hours without  ever warming its bearings ; a stop  was then made ,to turn the dredge  rourd and attach the tail scoW  after which work was again resumed and everything moves  smoothly up to the present. Considering the great, depth of frost  still iu the ground, this achievement speaks volumes for ihe future  of the Switz-Canna.  Notwithstanding adverse opinions as to the capability of the  dredge to handle boulders, today  the machine has pioved that it can  and does handle them, satisfying  the most sceptical, a number of  whom have paid a visit to the  dtedo-e, to witness to their own  satisfaction the extr^or linaiy power  developed by the machinery and  have seen the large boulders going  through with as much ease as the  ordinary gravel  Our editor will pay a visit to the  dredge next week and will be able  to give some data as to the quantity of gravel that is being handled  aud further particulars as to the  prospects. We thought it wise to  let the dredge operate at lrast a  week before goii.g into a desxnp-  I tion of its full capabilities.  The  Bull  Creek Hydraulic and  Dredging Syndicate of Atlin, B.

"JLiisten to me," said Sylvia. "You  know 1 can never be more than a sis-  tcr to you. I have a great regard  lor you, Percy, and Have at times almost loved you. But you arc so indolent, so lacking in spirit, that 1 can  never be your wife. Our temperaments are so dillerent. Let, us remain friends, thou, and never recur to  this topic again. If you do, 1 shall  excuse myself when you call. Now,  what 1 wished to sec you about is  one of our new neighbors."  1 had known Sylvia from boyhood.  In    the suburbs,   where we lived, life  was as quiet as in a country village.  , Living alone with an old housekeeper,  my books and collections, I depended  entirely upon Sylvia for woman's society. '  But I  had  failed to  win  her  love.    Her people thought a great d'eal  of  me���7)11     fact,  had   always  treated  ' me as a son, and J was positive that  my  cntrance,.into  the  family     would  have   been   hailed    with     satisfaction;  Hut I was  a booky,   indolent     young  man,-with no desires for a strenuous  life, and" Sylvia was very strenuous. I  believed even as I sat there disconsolate in their little drawing-room that  'should T join,a fire brigade, put     up  for Parliament,     or be arrested     for  scorching in my motor-car,  the coals  of lovo .would burst into  flame.  .But  I simply  could  not  do  those things,  and   so  Sylvia remained  a, sister   to  me.  One point was in my favor.  I had  the  entree  to  Sylvia's home    at    all  times,  and thus far no rival hod  prc-  , scnted himself.     My only hope     was  to  tire     her  out.       Although  placed  above  the     need  of  earning my own  living,  1   was not  weak,  merely     loo  indolent to make an ellort.  "Your  neighbor''"  I   prompted.  "Yes, -our  new  neighbor.       He's    a  burglar,   you     know,"   she   explained,  wjlh   much   animation.  ,   "Don't you find that inconvenient?"  I  suggested,     trying  to   conceal    my  amazement. .   '  "Oh] no! What's more, he is going  to call on  us,"  she replied.  "Do you tell me this.to make me  jealous?     I demanded.  "Don't be a goose, Percy! ' I want  you to, know him and have him call  on you. I told his wife that ] would  get your consent to have . him call  Rome- night when j<ou were out, when  it wouldn't annoy you," she continued.  "To commit burglary in my house?"  T gasped.  she nodded  her  sweet  the fact that we are innocent," ,1  cautioned, for I did not-like the idea  of Sylvia' mixing up in such schemes.  "It's purely a family affair," she  said. "Besides, he hardly ever takes  anything of value."  I ventured to doubt a little; but  this offended, her, and I hastened to  beg her pardbn. Somehow I was always begging her pardon. Then I  went home, and secreted' several rare'  vases,.and retired with the side door  unlocked. He did not visit me that  night, however. He went to Randall's, and carried off somo of the  coal, and' took Penderby's milk: I  heard Penderby swearing softly as he  caught the Citv train the next morning. "     "  .  II.  Personally, there was nothing in  Mr. Timbs, our burglar, to excite antipathy. He Was a short, fat, placid-faced old gentleman, with a fringe  of silver hair and the most innocent  blue'eyes imaginable. On two'different mornings 1 saw his wife cheerfully returning the fruits of ljis night's  work, and learned later that she had  insisted on paying for the coal and  milk. Then he came to me. I was  awakened by a loud,noise dowastairs,  and gained the first floor just in time  to see liim tugging away at a saddlebag chair.  "Let me carry your basket and  lantern and give you a lift," 1 offered  politely.  ;IIe  smiled     cheerily,   and   patiently  waited till I slipped on some clothes.,  "Won't you come back?'.' 1 invited,  when we had got the chair over     to  his house. '  "T can't' to-night," he said sorrowfully. "I've got to go to Randall's  and get a bicycle, and I've haii-prom-  ised to''Call for Penderby's baby tonight. So, you see, 1 have my hands  full."- Then he added lretfully: "So  much to do, and so'little time to do  it in. I ought "to havo an assistant.  If my wife wasn't"so economical T'd  have one. Busiest time of the year  for me, and no one to aid me."  I left him, after expressing my regrets, but took care to go after the  chair in the morning. Mrs. Timbs  thanked me for my forethought.' She  had just carried over a small sack  of coal to Sylvia's home.  "But he's getting better fast, she  declared enthusiastically. "I can remember when I had to carry things  back on the sly, or it would break  his heart." ' .  "If it would soothe him at all     to  keep the chair ", I began."  "Oh, no! In the morning he  doesn't remember anything about ,it.  Ho would knoW it wasn't his -property,  and  would  worry as to     how  to Randall's house. Randall was a  jeweller. His losses he estimated at  about ��1,000. Pondcrby was minus  a gold watch and ��100 in money.  "I should say he wan cured," grinned Randall sardonically, after he had  rushed to the, police.  J found Sylvia in tears, but could  not stop" to comfort her, for her father and I had determined to try to  find clues. A milkman told us that  he had met a silver-haired couple  driving a foaming horse towards Row-  berry, an adjoining town., We got a  horse and trap and gave chase. Just  two miles this side of Bowberry we  sighted our quarry. Timbs was in  the middle of the road, frantically  tugging at the harness. As we drove  up lie sprang into his carriage and  whipped up the horse. But the harness broke,again, and before he could  repair it we wero upon him, I grappled with him, and found to my surprise that he had muscles hard as  steel. Back ,and forth wc swayed,"  while Sylvia's father held Mrs. Timbs.  I really believe my man would have  beaten mo if ;he had not tried to  reach his side-pocket. When' ho did  that he loosened his grip on my  throat, and I threw him. After some  farm laborers Had come to our assistance we discovered that his pocket contained an ugly-looking revolver.  On returning home we met some of  the police.  ;'Calls himself Timbs���eh? Why,  this is Tommy Rogers! There's a reward of ��50 for his capture. Better  call and get it."      *  "And his wife?" sobbed Sylvia.  vSho is worse than he is, impossible,"   declared  the  officer.  "Sylvia," 1 suggested meekly, onco  wo wore alone .and I had satisfied her  that I was uninjured, "don't you  think I've been strenuous eno.ugh to  win you?" , 1  "Yes, dear," she whispered.���London  Answers. ,  4-  THCEY WILL ' ALWAYS  DEPEND  UPON THE  MONSOON.

His wife is the dearest,  sweetest little old lady in the world.  They have always lived happily together, but he is now sulfering in his  old age with a mild mental ailliction.  Ho is perfectly rational except at  night, when lie is seized with an ir-  ristible desire to commit burglary.  Barring that, he is a perfect dear of a  man."  "Oh, he is not a self-made burglar,  eh?     Not   a  professional   yet?     Well,  who eiso is he to practise upon?"    T  , inquired, relieved to know he was not  a dashing Claude  Duv.ul.  "Well,"   said   Sylvia,   checking     off  on  her     pink  lingers,   "he   is  coming  hero���to your place "  "Thank you!" 1 murmured.  "To Randall's," she, . continued  frowning, "and to Penderby's. There  arc four good places booked already."  "Th ho fussy?" T asked. "Does he  insist on calling at a dilieront house  every night in the week?"  "Not at all. .Somo nights he  won't oven go out. The doctors say  he will be cured within six months.  Why, ho used (o use a dark-lantern  and take the most, valuable things in  the house. Now he goes out with a  common lantern, with a big market  basket on his arm, Just like any honest man, and taken anything he comes  across."  "Hut I will not havo to sit up for  him, will I?" I inquired, feeling-.that  the old man would prove to bo a  bore. ���'"'  "That's the best part  of it!"     she  cried.

But,  remember,   if  anyone makes  a     com  plaint yoii and I will go to gaol   to  it   came    here."  your kind offer." _  In the afternoon I called on Sylvia  and found her admiring somo lace. --*  "See!!' she cried. "lie toook this,  and must have rumpled it dreadfully,  for he had a loj; of potatoes in the  same bnskct. But dear Mrs. Timbs  washed and ironed  it all out."  "T-Tow do. you arrange for his visits?" T asked.  "Oh, wo lot*- him have the lower  floor, and lock the doors at the head  of the stairs. He is so used to our  house that ho seldom disturbs us  now. I had an awful time prevailing  on papa ,to let liim come in. But you  know papa always does as I want  him to."  "But doesn't it displease him to  find doors locked?" I asked.  "No; he may feel grieved, and rap  on the doors ancl ask for tho keys.  Then wo tell him wo can't lind them  in the dark. ��� Oh, it's such fun! You  see, wo novcr know when we get up  what wo will find missing. The other morning ho cleared out the kitchen  and pantry, and papa had to get his  breakfast in town. And, would you  believe it, Mrs. Timbs wanted to pay  for the breakfast?"  "She certainly is a generous woman, and has a great* deal to worry  her," I assured hor. But after this  conversation I kept tho upper part of  the House locked.  Then passed .a lucky week with no  visits. Il, was a great relief, as it  spared mc from calling on Mrs:  Timbs every morning to cart back"  my belongings. Trcr husband had  stolon the saddle-bag chair on four  consecutive nights, and on each' occasion T was forced to help him carry it homo. 1 told Sylvia that I  could not stand it much longer: that  she could not now acusc mo of being  indolent.  "Don't begrudge a good deed,'  sa i d.  "T   don't."     T  replied.     "Only  niiylit take something less heavy."  "I remember it was on a Friday  morning when I was arour.ed from a  deep sleep by someone hammering on  my front door. I looked out of the  window, and, to my great astonishment, behold Sylvia's father.  "No ono ill, is there?" I cried.  "T am," he said hoarsely. "I am  sick at heart for being an idiot. Sylvia's burglar took off ��3,000 in  banknotes .from my library safe last,  night. ��� I've bebn"ovcr to his houso,  and there's no one at honk���at least,  I can'.f arouse anyone." '     ,  ..I*Hustled  into" my clothes and joined him.  "Hut I thought Timbs was almost  cured?" I expostulated.  "Cure bo hanged! Looks more as  if his wife had the same ailment. Did  he visit vou last night?"  I hurried into the houso, and on  beholding the saddle-bag chair was  about .to answer in the negative, when  I thought of my collections. On open  she  he  . One of the ' chief features of the  Japanese method of putting on flesh  is to sleep outdoors with as little  clothing as possible. The advocates  of this doctrine believe that the loss  covering the body 'has the more it  will seek to protect itself by the  growing of fat.  In Japan there is a saying that'  any fat man can become lean, and  any. lean man fat, if ho really wants  such a change of figure  . Besides * sleeping 'as lightly garmented as possible, the Japanese  searcher for llesh sleeps a great deal.  Ten, twelve and even,fourteen hours  are none too much for him. In his  waking hours he is to be kept amused. Anxieties and thoughts of a  serious nature are to be banished by  the lively use of repartee and banter. For example, when he sits  down to breakfast he should . never  take up the morning paper to digest  along with his meal. - Instead, his  wife should relate the latest joke she  has heard, and* in the. place of* asking him for money to buy some  yards of this or ' that fabric, she  should explain how she has hecn  able to run the house under her allowance.  When the lean exploiter for fatness  takes exercise, ho* should practice a  discreet moderation. Jlo should  not exert himself too strenuously.  Should he go walking, he should not  run across stiects nnd.dodgo cars  and express waggons. If the crossing, is too congested, he should bide  his time and try a more unruffled  fording  place.  When . the   fat man wants to    become   lean     according    to  Japanese  principles,     he    should not   entirely  reverse  the  plan  of  getting  fat,  for  he.     too,     should  sleep   as much as  possible     on   top    of ' his blankets.  Even in rigorous weather, he should  try     to   make himself     think  ho  is  warm,     though    it   might test    the  faith of a Christian   scientist to  do  so.      Cold is believed to quicken the  circulation,   and   thus  carry  off    tho  waste  more  readily.,   -But  the , fat  man should  sleep  as little as possible.        If    ho can   cut    his hours of  sleep from eight to six, or even five,  ho  should make such  a curtailment.  When    ho exercises he should     exert  all  tho vigor he possesses.     'Should  his wife  desire to  help him     shrink,  she  should  present   him with'    bills,  or   announce   occasionally  that     sho  expected    a   visit    from her mother.  The  fat man  should  noUfnst.      The  stomach     should   be  kept at > work,  also,  but   with u  slowly diminishing  amount      of   food     each day.      Oily  foods  should   be  abandoned   by    the  fat  mini   wanting to  shrink, just   11s  (hey     should be eaten  in abundance  by the man  who wants more nvo'r-  dupoi.".  It follows, therefore, according -to  these methods, oitl.or in Japan or  America, ihc lean man trying to get  fnt has a decided advantage over his  fat rival who wants to get loan'. If  the methods they adop.t prove successful, the loan man has certainly  the easier victory. > He has been  taking life calmly;, enjoying his bed  and board, and laughing at the  jokes of his friends. , The fat. man,  on- the, contrary, has boon toiling  away as ho never toiled beforo, has  fretted over new anxieties, has been  routed out of bed'when his slumber  was deepest and most blissful, '��� and  has hurried along the street as if  running to a fire, when' his destination might have lieon the.tax office.  On tho other' hand, if such methods  fail, the fat. -man has had all his  "111 rr.V'and-worry- and   loss of    sleep  . Famine  is chronic in India.  It has  occurred     at  intervals     for  centuries  past,  as long as man remembers,  as  long as records have been kept,   and  undoubtedly will    recur  for  centuries  to     come, 1 although  the  authorities  who arc responsible for the well-being  of the empire are gradually organizing .to  counteract  the* forces  of     nature which they cannot control���by increasing the food supply and providing  for   its  distribution. . But    there  must be     hunger and  starvation     in  India'so  long as the population    re-"  mains as dense as it is.    The reason  is not because  the-earth  refuses     to  support so many people, writes,a correspondent. '   There is yet .a vast area  of fertile land untitled, and the fields  already cultivated would furnish food  enough for 'a larger population -when  normal   conditions  prevail.     There  is  always enough    somewhere in     India  for everybody in times of sorest-distress,  but  it is     not  distributed  equally, .and     thoso who arc short h'uvc  no money to buy from those who have  a' surplus.    The export of gram , and  oilier products    from  India' continues  regularly  in the lean  as well'as     tho  fat years,��� but tho country is so large,  the  distances aro so great,  so inadequate  that  ono province  may',be    ox-  porting  food   to   Rurope  because      it  has to  spare,  while another province  may' be  receiving ships  loaded     with  charity  ��� from'     America because     its  crops have failed and , r  ITS PEOl'LE AR 10-HUNGRY.  The health and'happiness of 300,-  000,000 human souls in India and  that of their cattle, their oxen, their  sheep, their donkeys, their camels,  and their elephants arc dependent np-  and on certain' natural phenomena over  which neither rajah nor maharaja, nor  viceroy, nor emperor, nor council of  state has control, and beforo which  oven the great mogul on his bejewelled throne stood powerless. It is  possible to ameliorate tljc , consequences, lmt it is not possible to prevent  them.   ,  Whether  the crops shall 1 be fat'   or  loan, whether the people and the cattle  shall  be well  fed  or hungry,    depends upon tho "monsoons,"  as they  arc called,-   the alternation  of    wind  currents, which bring rain in its season.-    All  animal  and vegetable     life  is dependent upon them.. In the early  summer    tho broad    plains are baked  by the "sun  to  a temperature   higher  than that of. the water of the   great  seas which surround them.     In parts  of northern  India,  around  Delhi and.  Agra,  the, temperature  in  May     and  June is higher than in any other part  of the empire, and is probably exceeded in no other part of the world. This  phenomenon remains unexplained. The  elevation  is about  2.100 feet     above  the sea, tho atmosphere is dry and the  soil is sandy.     But  for some  reason  tho rays of the sun are intensely hot  and are fatal to thoso who  are    ox-  posed to them without sufficient protection.    But this extreme heat is the  salvation     of    the   country,  and   by-  its own action brines the relief without  which all    animal  and \egolable  life would perish.    It draws from the  ocean  a current of wind laden     with  moisture     which  blows  steadily     for  two months toward the northwest and  causes what is called  TIIR RAJ NY SEASON. '  The quantity of lain that falls depends upon the configuration of the  land. Any cause which cools tho  winds from the sea and leads to the  condensation of the vapor .they carry; any obstacle which blocks their  course causes precipitation. Through  all the northern part of India there  is a heavy rainfall during Ai-ril, May  and June, the earth is refreshed and  quantities" of water are drained into  reservoirs called "tanks," from which  the'fields are irrigated later in the  summer. '  Over 80 per cent of tiie population  are engaged    in farming.     They   live  from hand to mouth.     They havo no  reserve whatever,  and if the monsoon  fails them,     nothing will growY  and  they havo  no money to  import   food  for themselves and their cattle    from  more  fortuoato sections.     As  a rule,  the monsoons    arc vuvy reliable, but  every few years they fail, and a famine  results.     The government, has     a  meteorologicnl  department,   with    observers stationed at several points in  Africa and Arabia, and in the islands  of the sen, to record  ancl report   the  actions of nature.     Thus it has been  able of late years, to  anticipate    the  fat and lean  harvests.     It is possible  to   know    almost    precisely     several  months in advance whether there will  bo a failure of crops,   and  a permanent famine commission has been     organized  to prepare measures of relief  before    they     ore  needed.       In  other  words, Lord.Onry.on and his subordinates arc reducing famine relief to     a  system   which promotes economy     as  well  ns efficiency.  ���THE WORST FAMINE        A-  bury them. The ��� empire has been  stricken almost as hard during , the  last ten years. The development of  civilization 'seems to make a little  difference, for the famine of 1900-  1901 was-perhaps second in severity  to that of 3 770. ��� This, however, was  largely due to the fact that the population had not had time to recover  from the famine,, of 1896-97, 'which  was almost 'as severe. And although  everything'possible was done'to,1 relieve distress and prevent''the , spread  of plagues and'pestilence that , are  the natural and unavoidable consequences' of , insufficient nourishment,  even now people are -dying by thousands every week.  Tho loss of    human.life by starvation in    British India alono     during1  the famine of 3900-1901 is estimated  at 1,230,855, and this is declared to  be  the minimum.     In  a country     of  the area of India, inhabited by a superstitious,      secretive    and    ignorant  population,   it  is  impossible  to-com--  pel  the  natives *   to  report  accidents  and deaths,   particularly among     the'  Brahmins,  who  burn instead of. bury  their  dead.     Those  who  know     best  assert that  at least 15 per cent!    of  the deaths are not reported in   times  of  --FAMINES AND EJPIDEMTCS.'  And the enormous estimate 1 havo  given does , not include any of the  native-states, which have one-third of  the area and one-fourth of the population of tlie> empire. In some of  thorn sanitary regulations arc observed, and statistics aro accurately  reported. . In others no attempt is  made to keep a registry of deaths,  and- there are no means of ascertaining > the mortality,,' particularly in'-*,  times of excitement. ' In these little  principalities tho peasants havo, comparatively speaking, no,medical 'attendance; they are dependent, upon ignorant medicine men and sourccrcrs,  and they d'ie oil like flics, without even leaving a record of their disappearance. Thoroloro, the only way  of ascertaining the,mortality of.lhose  sections isto make deductions from  the returns' of the census, which is  taken with more or less accuracy every, ten years.  "TUe"famine of 1900-1901." says  Lord Curzon, speaking on the subject, "struck" many who had never  beforo known what' calamity was  and who wero crushed by the sud- .  dcmiess and directness of the blow.,  It attacked native states wlrich had  previously never known the obligation  of famine relief. It laid, its hand  upon the primitive inhabitants of the ���  hills unused'to discipline or restraint,  impulsive, improvident, lazy, living in  an almost barbarous state, in l wild  and,inaccessible jungles. 'It-sharpened the lurking nomadic instincts o��  wandering tribes and sent them drifting about the country, a ti.rror to  tho relief_ officers For a year it never left hold of its victims, and six  months had not elapsed bcrorc famine  had brought its familiar attendant  furies in its tram, and cholera. .dy-��  sentry and fever fell upon an already  exhausted and enfeebled ;>onulation. A,  famine such as we have lately experienced cannot be met with a sigh nor  dismissed with a shudder. It is an  abiding landmark in the history < of  tlio Indian  people."  INOCULATED POOR PATIENT.

Prof. Dr. Noissor, who has charge  of a hospital for diseases of the  skin 'attached to the Broslau University, has been compelled to bow  before a public protest against his  practice of inoculating poor hospital  patients without their knowledge  with various forms of vims for the  purpose of watching the effects on  the human  system. .*'  For several months- past, however,  he has, according to I lie "Schlcis-  schc Zeitung," been experimenting  with anthropoid apes by inoculating  them with1 particular  diseases,.  lie now finds that this comes more  expensive   than   experimenting     with  human   subjects,   for   the  apes     cost *  him from ,<200   to  ��.'375 each.

An Old-Timer Injured:      j  One Tuesday last, Mr.- Pierre  Boudreau, while engaged in taking  down an old building near the  sawmill .at Discovery, was rather  badly hurt, by the1' falling of some  logs ou him.

ARTIFICIAL  NESTS. ,  Now Is the time for those lovers  of birds who possess gardens suit-,  able to devise'means for attracting  many species into them for nesting.  Those who will take the trouble to  do so will be amply repaid later on  by the pleasure of watching the  domestic arrangements*of our feathered friends. The bird most easily  to bo attracted into our garden and  shrubberies is the lively titmouse, all  the varieties of'which, with two exceptions���the longtail arrd crested���  will gladly avail themselves of an  artificial nesting-place.  Boxes should bo constructed about  twelve inches in length and four  inches broad, with a lid that ma*  bo oasily lifted. At ono end a  small hole must be cut for tho in-  gross and egress of the tenant. It  is as well not to cut the hole too  largo if your object be to induce tho'  tits to take tip their abode in Hicsa  boxes rathoi',' than tho ubiquitous  sparrow. Tho boxes should bo  nailed against'a' tree or wall bc-  tweo five feot<and eight feet from tho  ground, and sh'ould not be tilled  with any- nesting material, for you  may bo sure ,. that if a bird selects  tho' sight for'i tin home it' will'first  of all turn -out everything that it  co'ntains and start afresh on . its  nest. , Boxes of the ,si?e given willc  probably bo tenanted during rthe  coming spring by one or other of the  following birds : great tit, blue, tit,  cole tit, marsh tit, redstart; perhaps  a 'shy nuthatch, who will take *' the  precaution, to seal down the lid with  clay and contract the entrance with  the 'same material; or it may be a'  wryneck, who is quite capable of  evicting.a tenant, and who, after  turning out the nest and its contents, will lay the eggs upon the  bare wood and- rear its family in  seeming discomfort.

Mrs. Candace Wheeler, well known  as a promoter, of women's industries  and for her articles "on and designs  for home decoration, has; written . a  book on "How "to Mak'e Rugs" in  which she "suggests that the weaving  of rag rugs might solve the problem of how to earn an independent  income for some women in farm  homes.  Just .at present, rag rugs are  quite "the proper thing" for tho  floors, of country/and seaside cottages  for piazzas, for bedrooms, and bathrooms, and for general use. They have  been found to be durable, suitablo  and economical for such purposes, and  havo been seen on sale at the ware-  rooms of one of the largest decorating firms in this city. The rugs arc  woven out of new rags, in two-yard  lengths, with bonier and fringo at  each end, and aro not only useful but  salable.  Rag carpets have been made for  many yonrs antf almost every coiin-  try neighborhood has even got its  "weaver"���who ,is usually overcrowded with work, and has no - timcf  for rug-weaving. It would be pos-  srble to sot up a now- industry without infringing upon tho established  one.' 'Few old looms still exist, un-  fortunately, the cr.a or cheat) jute and  ingrain carpets brought most of them  to the wood-pile, and the''secret of  the only .difficult part of weaving, the  warping, or placing the warp in tho  loom,, died with the women who years  ago, wrought' upon thcm;f There arc  still looms to ' bo purchased, however j and' where an old loom still  stands the secret of warping "may be  learned from the nearest weaver <     t*  ��    THE FIRST NECESSITY,  after the loom,  is , the carpet warp,'  which can ,,bo bought at any country  store���a met whrch shows the   prevalence of    homo    weaving.   trrhe warp,  can be bought in white'or colors, tho  latter* being not always reliable.  One  of the chief recommendations of these  rugs is that they are washable, therefore the'colors must be fast and    not  fade or "run."  Mrs.'Wheeler, recommends the coloring -,of ,worp,.ond rags at home,-. :by  the old-fashioned 'process, which produced' fast* colors. , Sonic, of the -aniline dyes''fade," "and. rugs that 7 rade  wouItt-TSoon "bring- (llscreai & ,Qfl_i_tho entire tindustry. ,��;* A1-*faded'warp(-is, .especially dctrimcntalito the good looks  of"a. rug." A01 good indigo blue will  neither runVnor..fade,-and' a numbe^  of shades can'be produced with ind'-;  go. cMrs". Wheeler ;f.says that 'orange  and a very deep rod' are the only two  colors in warp that she' has* found  reasonably' fast, and the orange  "runs" *so badly that it must . be  steeped in warm water before using;  and she adds' that she has used the  water in which it has been'steeped to  dye cotton rags, which tako a good  lemon yellow ,from it. Orange - red,  and the crimson rod known as cardinal, she excepts from the usual commercial dyes. By dipping ' orange  warp in indigo blue a fas��,, bright  green.can be secured, and this " with  the colors mentioned, give a choice of  five colors���green, blue, orange, red  and white.  Ruga intended for-salcmust be made  of new rags, vand" here the qjiestion  of economy must-be considered. The  waste from cotton -mills canJ be  bought for from ten to twelve cents  per pound, and consists for the. most  part of piece ends,���the imperfect -beginnings and cncimgs that must be  torn off when tho piece is made up  This makes ail ideal  MATERIAL FOR WEAVING.  Cotton bought by the yard-is more  expensive, and it would bo necessary  to figuie out the cost and see whether  rugs.could be made-at a profit by  using it. To many it would seem, a  crime to buy now goods to tear up  into carpet rags. Bought by the  piece, the goods would come cheaper.  The old fashioned way of sowing  carpet rags will not answer in this  new departure. .The filling must be  smooth, without lumps or ends. If  tho pieces arc large enough the edges  may* be lapped and sewed on the machine; tho lap should be from a quarter to half an inch, and be sewed  twice. The cloth can then be torn  the seams being cut with the scissors; tho woik is'expeditiously done,  and a smooth finish secured. Tho rags  should bo torn instead of cut, wherever possible, as uniform width is  thus secured. In ordinary cotton  cloth an inch is recommended as the  most suitable width. A pound and  a half of cotton rags will make a  yard of yard-wide weaving.  The simplest weaving, says Mrs.  Wheeler, is "warp of indigo blue and  white filling. There must be an allowance of five inches of warp for  fringe beforo the weaving is begun,  and ten inches between the first and  second rugs, to make the fringe for  each The rug should measure three  feet by six, without the fringe. The  latter is to bo knotted, six threads  to a knot. Such a rug can be as  easily washed as a counterpane, or  may bo thrown on the grass during, a  heavy shower and be thus washed.  Variations on this are easily made.  One way is to.use half a pound ^of  blue rags to tho two and a half required to make up the three pounds,  of /miu" required for a six foot rug.  This blue material must be distributed  through the rug evenly, and a good  way is to divide each color into three  portions so there is an equal share  of tho blue in each third of the rug.  A BORDER AT EACH END.  may' be made by weaving in from  eight to. ten or even more threads of  blue or any desired color, and scattering the rest "haphazard" in short  lengths through the body of the rug.  Dark and light blue rugs' on a' white  warp make an effective <rug, and where  much blue denim is worn the^materi-  al is easily secured. In any except a  blue rug a. stripe of red in the border is effective. A red warp with a  white filling will mako o pink rug;  if begun and finished with a half inch  weaving of the red, used for Warp,  with the red fringe a pretty border is  provided for. The rule is a light  warp with dark filling, and dark warp  with light or white filling.  Larger'rugs can be maae by sewing  breadths together and addrng a border. " Mrs. Wheeler advocates the  buying of cheap, coarse muslins and  calicoes which can be bought at from  four to five cents a yard. From eight  to ten yards, according to fineness,  will make a yard of weaving. Very  cheap unbleached cotton, that1 approaching the riuality called cheesecloth, dyes wolf and makes a light,  strong, clastic rug. i  A well mado rag rug will sell fo'f  $2; 1/ prettily made in colors, from  *2.50 to $3.50. - Some on which' extra work'' is expended and which are  artistfc'in color, will bring $<t to $6.'  The average to be reckoned is-about  Mrs Wheeler^ says- that her most  successful rag rug is a cardinal red  woven on white warp. ,' It' was made  of white rags treated with cardinal  red diamond dye, and was purposely  made' v uneven���that is, pains were  taken "to let the rags shade in color  from dark to light. The border consists of two four-inch stripes of "hit  er miss" green, white and red rags,  placed four inches from"'eithcr end,  with an inch stripe of red between,"  the ends finished with'a white knotted  fringe.   -       '        '  CHOICE  RECIPES. ,    ^  Ginger Snaps���Mix one-half pound  of butter, with one and one-half cups  sugar,- add one" and a half teaspoon-  fuls-- of baking, soda dissolved in hot  water, three eggs, season with ground  ginger, and add one cuji of flour.

HINTS TO HOUSEKEEPERS.  To remove the white spots from  zinc-lined sinks, or from stove yincs,  rub with a cloth wet with kerosene,  says a correspondent of tho Practical  Farmer.  A cooking school teacher cautions  her pupils against stirring oatmeal  while it is cooking, as doing so  makes it pasty. Oatmeal, to bo at  best estate, ought to be cooked slow-  Jy, three or four hours.  The always at hand sulphur match  is the most convenient thing for removing ink stains from the fingers.  Moisten the sulphur end with cold  water and rub the stain until it disappears.  Bake apples for breakfast. Bake  them the day before, if you haven't  time to do it before the meal, and  if the family prefer them warm, just  set them in the warmer.. Serve with  nice sweet cream and you have a  healthful, appetizing dish, which tends  to reduce the quantity of meat eaten.  After one is 30, the tendency of the  average individual is to eat more  meat than is good for him.

Then, after some weeki  have passed, the old servant will  tuin'up one day, express her thanks  for past kindnesses, will take ber arrears of wages and her bundles, and  disappear for ever. So the ntattcr  ends, .with the semblance of laindest  feeling on both sides. '     ,  ,  -$��� ������  .

Experienced' ' mothers know that  most of the troubles that afflict  young children "are due to some derangement of the stomach or bowels,  and that if the cause is removed the  .little one will be plump, rosy and  happy. -For such troubles as indigestion, colic, constipation, diarrhoea, simple fevers and teething  troubles thcic is no medicine in tho  woMd can equal Baby's Own Tablets. The action of the Tablets is  speedy, -and above all things safe,  as they contain not one particle of  opiate or harmful drug. Ask anj  mother who has used the Tablets  and she will say that they are the  best medicine in the world. Mrs.  John Gill, Cranberry, Que., says :���  "After having thoroughly tested  Baby's Own Tablets 1 can say they  are the best remedy for the ailments of little ones I have eve."  used. No mother should bo without them in the house." You can  get tho Tablets from any druggist  or they will be sent by mail at 25  cents a box by writing Tho Pr.

Hc was convicted of all of  them, and if he had been sentenced'  for the full term of punishment he  would be doomed to 2,500 years'.  imprisonment; but tho judge's heart  melted, and, in passing sentence, ho  took off 1,000 years.
