REVIEW. .  fcrably' single breasted, with turned  down collar and small revcrs, js always  tlu* best model; sleeves are 01 medium  size, coat shape, and with a tinned b.iek  cuff; the cuffs are fashionable this sea-  con with no trimming. This same severe  style looks well in rough serge, oi heavy  camel's hair or zibeline, all of whioh are  in btyle this winter.  Serge   costumes, and    especially     the  rough weaves, have been -,u popular for  so many months that il ha* been most  emphatically   declared   they   would     be  rather old 'fashioned  this =0:1.5011.    It is  certain    that    the    Ics-j    exaggeratedly  lough, wide wcav.e is noc &o fashionable,  but  there, are  a-inimter. of  cxtveitiely  smart gowns of the skirt tind coat order  .nowAybeing 'turned out  of  rough  serge.

Tliese  sue  trimmed   with   black   satin   and     With  black   soutache.;   not   elaborately   trim-  rued, never ove'rtriihmed, they are smart  and   becoming;   less , sever 'ly   practical  thaii the heavier grades yf iniiterja lb ivl  not sp aggressively tailor,mado. tliey ar(>  most popular.   Quite a coquettish touch  is given by tihe ubiquitous5 satin ^eurf;  uKi'k  "blue* lined  with  a    lighter    ulue.  which is sometimes worn as though pnvt  of the coat, or there is.Ain'.trodiujcd some  color in ��������� embroidery ou the collar and on  the   front  of  th.*  jaekBt.    Any   one   of  the more elaborate models now exhibited  The first eo;>l davs of autumn invar-    which has been most successfully made  iably arouse interest in the never entirely dormant subject of dreso, and every  woman instinctively begins, planning for  the -winter outfit. To be smartly gowned'in the early spring and early auiuum  tells tremendously, for it must be admitted the majority bf women are a bit  lazy about starting in to order new  gowns ahead of time., always deluding  themselves with the idea that they will  be aide to find something ready made,  some model costume that will be juet  right, or that their favorite dressmaker  will put all other orders aside to attend  to their demands or commands.  One of the most independent of mortals is the successful dressmaker at this  eeascm of the -year, for she realizes that  her clients are quite at her mercy and  often, tn consequence, are willing to pay  any. price to secure -something "fit to  ���������wear." and the fashionable dressmaking establishments have to work day and  night to turn out orders that are fairly  hurled at them when the weather sud-  denlv turns cold and the last spring's  serge or cloth costume that has Wen  depended upon for second best at least  ���������proves so totally out of style from the  latest Paris information a* to be deemed quite impossible. It certainly is a  ���������wise woman who gives her orders well  in advance and has at least her tailor  street costume ready to put on the moment the thermometer drops to a seasonable record.  Black   Satin   Gown.  The black satin gowns, with coat to  match, or the coat and -skirt with fancy  waist, thnt were so fashionable in Paris  in tlie early summer but were quite too  warm to lie'��������� worn in New York after  the early -part of May, are to be ee'on  now and will be worn until really cold  weather begins, for satin has considerable-warmth-at* a material sand ion interlining if a jacket of the present style  does not interfere with its lines nor  with it������ fitting well. A.*  Invariably the skirt is short and the  jacket is of medium length, the skirt  being narrow but. not exaggerated; a  band around the hem or two hands at  the side of across the badk to hold the  fulness of the upper -part of the skirt  is not l>y nny means narrow, nnd;a -few  gathers' around the sides and at the  back are in fashion; the front of the  skirt is plain and straight and the band  does not extend across the front  breadth in many of tlie models. There  is. however, great variety in the skirts  and in the way the band is put oh. One  favorite design has a wide band around  the entire skirt; over this falls another  much narrower band, which directly in  front is turncl back and forms a fold,  tlint reaches to the waist, g-radually  tapering off into a point*, the skirt is  wider than the second band, but ihe  fulness   is gathered  into it.    There  is  up in black satin and is now being cop  k'd in smooth cloth.  A point worthy of note is that almost  without exception any model gown made  in satin ean be successfully carried out  in broadcloth..'cashmere de soie or chiffon velvet/ but of the three materials  the, cloth is the Ivst. Most beautiful  are the cloths for this winter, fine in  texture, with a wonderful fiaisli,-waxsa;  and at the same time light an weight.  Every indication is toward a -cloth winter, for gowns for the house are "being  made in cloth, as are also the most  elaborate street costumes.   : ��������� .'AY  Fur f andy Velvet-������������������.-'  Unci! waiter 'begins;, the .satiiiV'cbstumfc  wil*. be smart for street w-aar, bui as  saiin ij. ������ material that ha������s always been  classed with summer fabrics or with indoor gowns., to make the satin street  gown attractive there'will be =een trimmings or fur and velvet. Tbfe is to be .a  season of fur aiid velvet anyway, and  the broad band around the; skirt, the  large shawl coii&r; and deepAcuffs of iur  arc- becoming and can.:be transferred to  cioth or veivet costume when desired.  A charmingly- inenhM-Jtent e<>~*0mve i* of  nioussciine de soie or>ilk voile made-up  with scalskinAand iineilVWithAsatin. This  is too eccentric to-be generally recommended, but the idea enn be worked out  in the satin without the veiling of mousseline de soie. Strange fashions or details of 'trimming are popular this season oii account of the "permitted combination of velvet and fur with other  materials, and it is interesting .to .note  how by the use of the velvet or fur new  lines can be given and a model that  would be unbecomingYbttA transformed  into one that is both smart and attractive. The long plain panel down the front  and tho band around the lower ;part of  the skirt ean be arranged to givelength,  while flat bands and foids *>ut on skirt  nnd waist, with spaces.between, if carefully arranged/will notniak" the wearer  look short and fitout, but will give a  sk-nder appearance.  Th:-*. season the short skirt gown,  soems destined to receive more attention  than usual, one reason heing undoubtedly "because short gowns nre vinprecijv  dentcdly fashionable.. In. canscquejive  the number of short costumes required is  greater, and there is a marked 'difference in the styles for morning and after,  noon. The practical serviceable tailor  costumes of m 1'iviofc or cordux'oy,  is almost a mattor of course in the requirement of even the simplest outfit,;  and this winter is more than ever popular. Plain and mixed materials are in  fasliion, and there are many mixed pn*"  terns in cheviot and homespun that are  smart. and attractive. Those fabrics  should always bo mndo up tumply, the  straight, narrow, not exaggeratedly iiir-  in .serge can he, copied iUnl elaborated, on  cloth or velvet.  Velvet is fashionable this season, and  not only silk veivet, but corduroy and  velveteen in all colors are in demand;'.  Quite a novelty is the striped velveteen  and velvet, the dark color >with hairline  of white/and made with revers and cuffs  of plain White cloth-'or velvet, it is becoming to almost every woman. The objection has been made., that with the  havrline of white the gown is not so  suitable for afternoon and reception  wear, but it is more, like corduroy,  ���������whieh. does not rank with silk and chiffon velvat. So smart and novel is it  that the objections raised will not be  lasting. The same model is copied in  plain black or color, with the trimmings  in either velvet or satin, while fancy  buttons are an addition of not an improvement.  Velvet and Cloth.  seems much liked, and is much in evidence for afternoon wear, while for use*  hi the evening there are many delightful models. ������  The fashion of wearing hose aria shoes-  to match one's gown seems likely to*  continue. The shoes and hose of contrasting shades have not met with much'  favor, and one sees them only on the  'few who dare much for the sake of"  fashion.  Wliite stockings and black shoes, for-  a short time, deemed one of the smartest, of fashion's fancies, are scarcely ever  seen, and one supposes it is because of"  their unbecomingness.  Contrast between hoee  and shoes or  between frocks and shoes is apt to make  the feet "stand out," as a painter would  say,   with   tho   result  that   they  look-v  larger.  LATEST   IN   NEW   YORK���������THE  "DING-A-LING'   'HAT.  Vvlvot linings aro said to bo the last  Paris chic, and, truth, velvet serves in  uiaiiVYwaysy A Vy  IDEAS IN  PARISIAN CHIC.  Velvet combined with cloth will, as  has already "been stated, "be one of the  most popular combinations of the "winter. :'JLA cloth gown with a velvet coat  is a -most useful, practical style, and  while the fashion at present calls for  yel^tV^iTOming on the skirt j;, tlie., costume Vcan he made with velvet only In  the<*oa&.  The finish of they skirt around th.e;bot-  tomis carefully considered this Reason.  The "band of contrasting material may be  quite ywlde or quite narrow, "but a band  is essential. There may "be one or' two  ro^SjvofsTbroad hraid,; with a ^fiiusliyvat  Veitlwi^edge of soutacheiVor there|niay Vbe  only a band of thV'same^c^^'^l'as the  gowi������Aj;>Vifi^t is a figirfed xna'terial .the  baudviseither "bias or so arranged that  the design is at a different angle, when  ithOjUiaterial is. plain,then there is a fold  ?#fSsaiinVor v^ve&above: the band. This  trimming Tjrealks the too Aphxin line of  the skirt when it is made without a  tunicjAfor the quite plain-skirt is not  fashionable. AVVV'VA'V  V AXaSrt year's -pleated Skirts are by no  means hopeless, however. The inner  ���������pleats can *be ia^en font, -some if not  allj-Vor the upper part ofV the skirt can  be left, the pleats stitched down, , and  then *pla'in baud of cloth, -satin or velvet  can be. put around, the."bottom and the  skirt thus transformed and made up  to -date.  A. T. Ashmore.  Velvet Coat Lining  Lends Chic to  a  Black and Green   Plaid Suit.  Among other beautiful things I saw  at the great dress shows in Paris was  a wrap which was designed for the wife  of a well-known politician. It was of  scarlet cloth encrusted with gold lace,  the latter outlining the Shape of the  wrap* over this was posed Boyal bluo  chiffon. So admirably were the colors  blended that there was not the slightest suspicion of crudeness in the effect.  Fur aud velvet���������wliat a delightful  sound the >yprds have!���������are supporting  each other admirably in all the autumn  and winter modes.  V y        ^ Velvet   Lining.  One of the latest ways of using velvet  is to apply it to the interior of one's  coats, so to speak. A ^nart green and  black plaid suit I saw was made with  the Princess skirt, and that is cut a little above the waistline, not very wide,  but just so that one could move comfortably in it, and the coat, -which was  quite short and semi-fitting, had a Targe  sailor collar of black velvet. Black velvet also formed the cuffs and the lining of the coat. For ordinary-wear one  would imagine this fabric hardly suitable  as a lining: it would be a lengthy process skinning off a coat so made, if  one liad a velvet or woolleu fabric  blouse underneath. The mannequin, however, who wore this * suit had a satin  blouse of dull green, richly embroidered  in silks of Oriental colors, under the coat  and seemed to experience no difficulty in  slipping itVpff. Whereat I sat amazed.  ���������AyVErririine   Chemisette.Y  i    , .-.*   ���������'���������--:���������'���������������������������y- ���������'��������� - -.   '.

The gown itself was made of  rich black Lyons velvet, following the  lines of the form, but yet not. tightly fitting it. The upper part of the gown was  formed' of tailless ermine;- a most fashionable and expensive fancy, and took  the form of a chemisette with short  sleeves. Alt rather,; reminded one of' the  White Cat of the fairy tale.  ,: But what struckViheAmdst in   Paris, I  think, was the French women ���������perhaps  one should say the Parisienne, but it applies fairly generally. The Frenchwoman is determined to he iii the fashion,  and adopts every means to that end. A  certain silhouette is the vogue���������behold!  every Frenchwoman is that shape. A  trying color is the fashion ���������the Frenchwoman adjusts her "make-up" to suit  that color. The French woman habitually and openly uses aids to the complexion.   '.-.  IN   MAIZE  RROCADE.  Another Lovely Veiled Evening Dress  In Cerise Charmeuse.  A lovely evening dress is of a pale  maize-colored brocade of the Empire  character, the upper part of the corsage being draped with lace which also  forms the- sleeves, and is brought round  to the centre of the back, where it is  caught with a diamond cabochon and  falls in stole ends, losing itself in the  folds of the train.  Gold embroidery is requisitioned for  the further adornment olythe corsage  and sleeves.  Another evening gown of cerise charmeuse has the square train and front  panel embroidered with tarnished gold in  a Byzantine design. V The tunic is of  of Honiton lace���������-mellow with time. liis slit open at the sides' to the knees,  where it is caught together -with motifs  of embroidery, the four-ends of the tunic  forming quaint little fishtail trains oh  either side. The lower part of the corsage is of charmeuse and the upper of  lace shadowed with net: a clasp of  tarnished gold is introduced at . the  waist. ;  A suitable coiffure is elaborately  dressed a la Greeque with a broad gold  jeweled headband. .:. -  Laee sandals in silkVor satin, with  or without heels,A are Aenjoying quite a  vogue, arid very dainty they look on a  pretty foot.

"Shouldn't wonder if you've forgot that I picked you  out of the gutter, out there," and he  pointed into Fenchurch street, "and'  made a man of you."

He stooped at, he pDoke. and picked  up a piece of paper which lay, half torn  across, in the fireplace. It was the innkeeper's  bill at  Deercombe.  "Deercombe!" he said, ' flashing his  eyes upon the old m������ui. "Deer���������ah, yes,  I remember, that is Lord Arrowfield's  place���������no, not his now! Who came into  it?

If any man  knows the world he does; too well for  us. Craddoek. Depend upon it, he'll keep  his two millions!"  r'*Hush!" said Mr. Craddoek, and hobbling to the door he turned the key.  Don't speak too loud, Royce; that old  cat of a "housekeeper is not bo deaf as  she'r pretends to be. Seep his two million, will he?

He  hadn't been to the Wold for years. He  hadn't mentioned his wife's name for  years. What does he do when he gets  down to the place? NShuts himself up  in the library, sleeps in the room where  he and his wife used to sleep; had her  portrait brought down from the gallery, and placed on a chair in front of  hini. so that he can see it where he sits.  Spends the day mooning about the old  lumber rooms, where the countess' dresses and things have heen pushed away,  and hastily���������mark me, Royce���������hastily  writes some document, with two of the  servants as witnesses."  ^ Royee  smiled.  "A very pretty story," he said, "but  it is all guess work, and worth nothing.  I am inclined to think that he didn't  make a.fresh will." '  "Then for once your cleverness i������ at  fault, Royce.*' retorted Craddoek, triumphantly. "For he did! I don't guess  this time���������I know! Why? Because he  wrote to Stuart Villiars, telling him  that he meant lo disinherit him, and  that he had' left the property to one  more fully enHttey to it."  For the first lime the young man's  face was turned on Craddoek with, sharp,  open surprise.  "Ah," he said. "How do you know  all this?"  "I saw the letter!" said old Craddoek,  in a hoarse  whisper.     "Stuart Villiars  read it  to  me on the    terrace  of  the  Wold!"  Rovee's keen eyes flashed.  "You went there to���������"  The old man nodded.  "To   look for the  last  will���������the will  the earl went down there to make; the  will he made with his wife's portrait before him."  "You found nothing at the Wold?"  Royce asked, his voice soft and thoughtful.  Mr. Craddoek shook his head.  "Nothing.   'I was there for hours.    I  searched  the  library carefully.    It had  boen  locked   up after  he   left^and undisturbed."  "In whose favor was the last will  made?"  "Ah," groaned the  old man, "if we  could tell that".  "You have found no one then?" said  Royce.  'T!?o one," responded Mr. Craddoek,  gloomily. "The countess had a daughter, there is no doubt about that; she  herself died, there is no doubt about  that; the daughter is supposed to have  died���������"  "There is doubt about that?"  J'Yes!" said    the    old man,    sullenly,  stubbornly.    "Royce. I believe she lived  to marry and give birth to the heir of  all this  property, but    where is  shfe?"  and he stretched out his skinny hands.  "No"trace of her at all?"  "Not   the   faintest.     She  disappeared  as completely as if���������if she had been a  shadow," said Mr. Craddoek.  Royce was silentf ro a moment, then  he laughed.  "It is a pretty problem, with two  sides. To find the eail's last will and  to find the person in whose favor it  was made! Most people consider one  question of that kind difficult enough,"  he added.  "But not you; not you, Royce!" said  the old man, clutching his arm eagerly.  "Not you! You won't make much of  it; you're too clever! And I taught vou,  didn't I, Royce, eh?. And look at'the  money that's to be made, out of it!  Thousands! We might make terms with  the ^person whose favor the will is in,  or with Stuart Villiars himself; it could  be worked cither way."  "If you had the wiil and the person  tp whom the old earl really left his money," said Mordaunt Royce. He spoke  dreamily, with his eyes fixed on the fire,  his opera hat held before his lips, his  long, white hands playing a soft tune  on the crown.  The old man watched him closely, nar-  rowly.-   .  ,"You'rc thinking of something,ORoyce,"  he declared in his shrill suppressed  treble. "You're thinking of something,  I know you are I You're at work on it  already, eh? I know you'd take nnd  hong on to it; that's why I told you.

Alfred Hy. Orth, of  Shipley, Ont., says:' "While at work X  had the misfor*'ine to run a rusty nail  under my thumb nail, to the depth of  about one and a half Inches. The pain  was terrible and what I feared was that  the nail, being so dirty ana rusty, would  set up festering and blood-poison. I  knew from previous experience how good  Zam-Buk was, so I cleaned the thumb,  melted a little Zam-Buk, and ran It Into  the wound. The result was wonderful!  lt soothed tbe pain and the thumb actually did not swell. Zam-BuK Kept away  all Inflammation. I was able to go on,  with my work aU the time, and In a  few days the thumb was as good as ever.  A balm which can do this should be In  every working man's home."  Zam-Buk Is the finest form of "insurance" for all workers. Its antiseptic  power is so great that no disease germ  can live In it; and If Immediately applied  ���������to a sore or Injury, or diseased patch, all  danger of blood-poisoning is averted.  Being composed of pure vegetable essences, Zam-Buk is an Ideal 'oaim for  babies and young children, and mothers  wil! find it far superior to the ordinary  sftlves. some of which contain harmful  Elhieral poisons, rancid animal fats, etc.  Zam-Buk is a sure cure for ulcers,  abscesses, eczema, ringworm, blood-  poison, scalp sores, chapped hands, cold  sores, inflamed patches, bad leg, vwicose  veins- and ulcers, plies, cuts, burns bruises  and all skin diseases and injuries.

Speers store has become  widely known as the home of a firm of  up-to-date providers, who not only keep  a stook of the best and most varied  goods, but also by their, artistio displays  of same bring them right before the oye  of the public.- With suoh a.reputation  to live up to, Mr. Speers and nis able  assistants have planned, their Christmas  window display, and it is no exaggeration to sav that they have surpassed  themselves. The main window haa  been designed to give a sunset effect,  the background being formed of a series  af fancy twisted crinkled papsr .work  emblems, radiating in rays from a large  central sun, the artistio coloring of  which forms a fine ground against whioh  tbe various fancy articles and seasonable Xmas presents make a most effective showing. The central feature ia  the.wax French doll, valued at $20, and  which is the prize which will fall to the  lucky winner of the Speers bean guessing competition. Bound tbis ia grouped  a showing of articles suitable for Xmas  and Hew Year gifts, being bnta.fo're<.  , aste of the array cf new and specially  imported goods offered by this store.  The second window will be devoted to  gent's furnishings and dry goods. At  night, with the lights aglow, these windows, present as attractive appearance  noG aurpassed, by any store in the Interior, *nd the. well filled shelve! and  counters piled with new goods are snf  cient to ahow that the Spears' store can  produce the real staff, and that the display is folly justified by the quality of  the goods delivered. -''  i Passers by the   Oreston Mercantile  * J t- *     " ji      ���������     **  Qo's store are startled i>y tht*. brilliancy  of their window.

Muoh credit is due to this enterprising firm who have gone to the trouble  ane) expense of suoh a beautiful work of  art;. It is in everyrespeot a oity window  display, and those who have not seen it  should nat fail to view the cave,when  pasting.

Messrs.'  Stooks and Jackson obtained a first  prize for an American Pippin, and under tb* hiding cf " Hoscsrsbia Kds������  ti3n " a diploma haa been granted the  following Oreston, fruit growers : 3.  Heath, W. Arrowsmith, J. Spratt, W.  K. Brown'and J. Cook.  " AU of the above named are recorded  as coming from West Kootenay,* with  the exception of J. Cook, who haa Ores-  ton credited after his name. It is a  noticeable fast that whenever a Nolsoa  or a Grand Forks man got a prise at the  big apple show he is oredited with coming from bis own town very properly,  but when a Creston man secures a prize  West Kootenay alone (eta theoredit.  Thia points to some very coarse dis?  crimination against Oreston at the Yan-  eouves Apple Show. Th������ ffegssa ep*  patently being that our valuable fruit  exhibits were entrusted to outsiders,  men from ether districts, and who were  sissply working oa a salary.  It is to be hoped that this experience  wili benefit Creston fruit growers, and  that in the future they will entrust  their fruit exhibits to local men only.  We are authorised to announce this  week, that a thoroughly Up-to-date flour  and feed store was opened for business  in the MoPeak blook. Sirdar Avenue,  last Wednesday. The proprietors Messrs Ingham and Bnnce are ready to sell  cheap for oath and will carry ia stook  flour and all kinds of feed including  'Orahamflour'aad rolled eats. A part of  heir large stock arrived thia week and'  more will follow. Both these gentlemen hail from Alberta and are   live  i. ������  business mes/and under their management ws prsdict e large and ever grow*  ing business will be established. The  Review bespeaks for the Cheap Cash  Feed Store, their share of the publio  patronage.   .  Mr Thoina^Bv Cf Lathbridge, who  recently p-arcfta&ed 15 acres of land from  H. JHamiltosrii is^iows.

Incidentally it may'. be elated  tbat Mr. Thomason ia secretary and  organiser of the Y. M. O. A., for the  whole of Western Canada. The acquiring of this plot of fruit land by such a  prominent resident of the coal.city may  mean much for tbis distriot, as he will  doubtless be instrumental in inducing  other of his friends to locate here.  occasion  Annual Meeting of F&rmer's  Institute  The Creston Farmers Institute held their Annual  Meeting on Thursday {December the 15th in the old school  house.

(By H. C. Orson, Jb\ S. S., in Toronto  Financial Fost.)  A body of men, international and representative in character, will shortly be  assembled in London, .England, for the  purpose of discussing, in a practical way,  the subject   which    heads   this  article.  That such a convention will be timely  and oportune. is conceded���������if the writer be not mistaken, tne British Government ia behind the movement, and one of  the Cabinet Ministers is actively participating in the  preliminary  work-, of-organization.     This is a significant omen.  It shows that the meeting is being called,  not to discuss civics from an academic  standpoint, but in a spirit of real endeavor to solve existing problems o������ municipal government.  Those who have visited the cities    of  Europe and the older cities of this continent, must have  been impressed Willi  the almost total lack of original design  shown in their construction.    .Many  of  them  seem to have been perniitted    to  grow without guidance or restraint, and  in evident defiance of the principles of  system and good order.    The   result   is  narrow   and   crooked   streets  congested  with traffic���������irregular building line* and  more - irregular    architecture,   together  with���������in the States and Canada, particularly���������unsightly  poles  and wires, contributing their due share     to    marring  what might, in some cases, at least, have  given a pleasing and harmonious effect.  Many of these cities, even at this late  day, have come to realize the errors of  the past, and    are busily engaged,    at  enormous expense,   in   the work o������   reconstruction.    Landmarks,    hoary   with  age, and rich in historic association, are  being sacrificed  to make way for modern needs.   JKveii London and Home have  become imbued with     this     progressive  spirit, and in both of these cities Vast  works have been pndertaken, thecomple-  tion of which will transform them in appearance and redound to their great advantage in health, comfort and convenience.  The lesson of the old world until recently had no meaning for us, and so  ���������we, too, had narrow and crooked streets,  irregular building lines and unsighety,  and often dangerous pole* and wires.  The work *f reconstruction should, in  certain of tbe older cities, be begun.  <������ven if at U heavy cost.  A heavy responsibility rests upon   lac  shoulders      of our      civic authorities  throughout  the  country.     The slipshod  and short-viewed methods   of    the past  must be changed.  Men with real knowledge, and real  authority, must take the reins. Mistakes  must be corrected, and their results eradicated. Conservatism is useful as a  broke, but it will never, of itself, drag  anything uphill.  The civic machinery must be readjusted, not only to fit present needs, but  with an eye to tlie future and its potentialities.  Particularly is there a lesson here for  tin; people of the new west. Let them  liceome students of civic history, and  in planning and governing the new towns  and cities which are springing up, profit  by the mistakes and oversights of the  older communities.  The most enlightened principles Bhould  olvtain. l'laim should be made wisely  from the start, and growth directed  along the lines of a pro-conceived and  prc-dirccted programme of streets,  sewers and water mains, and other considerations which make up the modern  requirements of city life.  ��������������� ������ ,    .

At night take one-half of a cupful I  of cornmeal and a small pinch of sugar  and salt each, scald with new rnilk heated to the boiling point, and mix to the  thickness of a mush.

(The  Forum.)  = Disregard for the needless suffering of  charity patients, especially children, cannot possibly be condoned or excused. In  spite of the great and noble work done  by the hospitals and free clinics, there is  occasion for shame and indignation when  we have to Jatand by and see helpless  children with broken limbs being twisted  and turned and pulled nnd jerked around  with no one to raise a voice of protest  and no law to invoke to mitigate their  needless suffering.  I know ol many city hospitals where  this cruel practice Btill obtains, of bone-  setting without the aid of a little gas  or chloroform to ease the sufferer, and  the excuse in every case is the need of  economy. Yet the material would cost  but a few cents ���������probably less than the,;  cigar that the operator lights when tho  clinic is over���������and this paltoy sum,.and  the callousness of the hospital authorities, are all that Btarid between the agonized patient and a.painless operation.

REVIEW.  ���������A if  \  I  MORGANATIC WEDDINGS  A Prerogative of Royalty That is Fast Disappearing���������The Theory That  Royalty Can   Only^ Mate   With  Royalty  Being Discarded.  Worldwide interest in the subject of  morganatic marriage has been revived  by the approaching wedding of Prince  Victor Napoleon, the Bonapartist pretender to the throne of France, and  Princess Clementine of Belgium. Morganatic marriage lias been defined by  Sir Edward Clarke, one of the greatest  of living English lawyers, as "privileged bigamy," and, like a good many other  privileges, it is confined to royalty. It  -had its origin in Germany, but it soon  became popular in( other countries, -and  there is hardly a royal family in Europe that has not experienced it in the  person of one ar. least of its members.  The institution Is based on the theory  held by the lawyers of most' European  countries that "royalty can 'only" mate  with royalty."  An alliance, therefore, contracted between a royal person, and one of lower  , birth would not have, the "binding force  of an alliance betwen equals. In order  to overcome the scruples of royal lovers who wished to make the objects of  their adoration their wives, the morganatic marriage was invented. This is a  marriage which is perfectly regular as  far as the religious side is concerned,  and^for that matter as far as the legal  sideis concerned, too, but its offspring  cannot inherit the father's royal honors, and in the event of its becoming  necessary for the royal husband at  some future time to contract for dynastic reasons a marriage with a regular  royal bride the morganatic marriage  must not be allowed to stand in     the  ** way. This is the case in the Victor Naj-  oleon affair. A royalty who is already  married to a royalty, however, cannot  contract a'" morganatic marriage, while  his royal wife is alive.  As a matter of fact morganatic marriages usually turn out uncommonly  well, says a London correspondent of  the Washington Star. A royal lover  who is willing to go to all the trouble  and put up with the gossip and scandal that usually accompany such a  marriage is usually willing to stick to  the woman of his choice. Indeed, he  often relinquishes all claim to his royal  inheritance before contracting the marriage. Such was the case of the Grand  Duke Michael of Russia and Countess  Torby, who are among the most popular and respected couples in English society. There is no danger that the grand  duke will ever desert his morganatic  wife to mate with his equal in rank.  Such was also the case of Prince Oscar  of Sweden, who renounced his rank to  marry Miss -Ebba Monck, one "pf hisY  mother's ladies-in-waiting. He took the  title of Count of Wisborg and the pair  are working as Salvation Army officers  tin.Lapland. Another famous ease of.this  kind was that of the Grand Duke of  Austria, who took the name of Johann  Orth and disappeared after marrying  Millie Strubel, an actress.  Another famous case of fidelity between a couple of morganatieally married is that of the ATchduke Franz  Ferdinand, heir to "the dual throne of  Austria and Hungary, and the - Countess Sophie Chotek. He has been urged  by his relatives time and again to  contract a royal marriage, but he refuses, and declares that his wife shall  reign with him as Empress of Austria. She -will reign in any case as  Queen of Hungary, for Hungary knows  only one kind of marriage, and it is a  safe bet that the-Austrian law on the  subject will be changed before the old  Emperor Franz Joseph is cold in  I grave.

English royalties have had their  share of morganatic marriages, but it  is only just here to explode an anjient  and persistent scandal which has been  circulated about King George. That  was the story that he was mavis 1 as  a young man, when he had no hopes of  becoming heir to the throne, *o tho  daughter of a commoner, and that he  abandoned her to marry the present  queen when his elder brother's death  made hf-n heir. To begin with no such  marriage could have taken place, for under the English law any ceremonv would  have been illegal and void by whSe'i anv  member of the royal family was married  to any one���������royal or not���������without the  consent of the king* in council. But the  writer has been informed on the highest  authority that there wasn't even a midnight ceremony to base it on. The favorite story is that the lady was the  daughter of an admiral and that Prince  George married her when he was a  young sailor' 'stationed at Malta. On  the authority of a close friend of the  late Princess Mary of Teck, mother of  the present queen, who made a thorough  investigation of all the stories before  her daughter's marriage, the following  is said to he the true version of what  really happened:  King George was always an uncommonly serious young man. He had no  taste" for actresses and he detested  demi-mondaines. His love affairs, such  as they were, were always- with young  ladies whom he met at couit or on his  journeys abroad, and he had a way of  falling rather seriously in love. One  of the most serious of his boyish love  affairs "occurred when he was at Malta.  The girl was the daughter, not of an  admiral, but of an army doctor, stationed* there, and the princess was informed the affair went so far that the  young prince declared that if It were  in his power he would marry the girl.  It was not in his, power, however, for  no such marriage eould have any binding force in "iingiand, and L'ucx'e never  was any" kind of a ceremony. This is  tlie only basis for the story so commonly accepted as true that the present  King of England was morganatieally  married.  If he were not, however, a good many  of his predecessors were, as well ns a  good many of his forebears who never  sat on tne throne.      George    I.    went  through a marriage ceremony with the  jbucliess  of Kendall.    George  IV.  married Mrs., Jb'itzherbert,   nn   aatress   and  William  IV.  lived with   Mrs.    Jordan,  their    children   being known    by    the  name of Fitzclarence. One of the best-  known   cases   of  morganatic    marriage  in   England   during   comparatively   recent-years was that of the late Duke  of  Cambridge, Queen Victoria's cousin,  to Miss.tfarebrothcr, a   beautiful     and  talented   actress.       They lived happily  togotl-w for a lifetime, and their child-  ,ren, who     arc known by the name of  FiUyoorgc, won high rank and honors  in llic* army and navy.  *, fcfvmetmies   the   offspring of   a morganatic  marriage    rpgain    their    royal  states    Tlvo* present, Queen of England  was ,Princess,May of Teck,.  and    her  flither, tlie ���������������Duko of teck,, was tlie son  of oife of the   JJukes bf VVurttembei'g,  by' ii nioi'g&nd'tic; wife.   Prince Henry of  liattenbcrg,   who  married  the , favorite  daughter, of Queon Victoria, and whose  daughter is  tho Queen  of Spain, was  also  tho  descendant    of  a  morganatic  maiviuge   by   one   of   the Princes    of  HesBcy^A   y.yy n, y.YX. ;...��������� X- y .,,���������:, , ���������,; ,  '   Morganatic marriages seem,to run in  thu  blood of, tho royal family of   Uol-  giiiiii.

In fact, the King now  Iwrdly over   makes any objection    to  ���������tmiinberd' of his family marrying    persons of Inferior rank.   King Edward'n  made a duke on his marriage. The  children of both these unions would  rbe eligible to succeed to the crown  in the case of the failure-of more direct heirs. 'There' are rumors that  Princess Patricia of Oonnaught, a  nioce of the late King Edward, will  soon be allowed to marry the young  Marquis of Anglesey, with whom she  has been in Jove for years, and there  will be nothing morganatic about that  mai riage. ,  * <*������������      - ��������� ���������  Jty*T"=5  THE COLT AFl'ER WEAKEN G.  On most farms the sucking colt has  recently been, or is now being, w&aned,  and this is one, of the most critical periods of its life. Heretofore, its sustenance has been furnished by its mother,  though it has indulged to a considerable  extent in supplementing that supply by  grazing at pleasure. But when the process of weaning is institued*, the hitherto chief food supply i3 cut off, and the  colt is forced to develop the incidental  into its only mainstay. Some farmers  have prepared the colt for this critical  turn in its manner of living by having  it learn to eat oats and fresh hay, and  gradually accustoming it to depend  largely on these foods before finally taking away tlie mother. Jiut the great  majority ot farmers have let the mare  and colt run at large on pasture with  little, if any, supplementary feeding; and  when silo-filing time has come to hand,  tliey decide at once to wean the colt and  put the mare to work Too frequently  the colt is turned with other young stock  in a back pasture, and allowed to rustle  for itself until Jate fall.  Such a system is essentially wrong  The colt should be taught to eat grain  and hay. If it has not learned to do so  some time ago, then it should mastei  that accomplishment at once. While it  must not be too heavily fed, yet it shoutd  be fed liberally and regularly. The one  thing to be kept in mind and zealously  striven after is to keep the colt thrifty  and constantly and rapidly growing.  With horses as with other live 'stock, we  wish them to make the greatest growth  possible at the earliest .age, and this  must not be measured in pounds of fat,  but in frame, height, bone and muscle.  Up to weaning time, the colt is very  little of a problem, as far as his feeding  and growth is ������oncerned, but, from that  time on, the making of a colt into a  horse lies in the hands of its owner or  feeder. If it is starved and neglected for  the next six months after weaning, it  will take the colt about two years longer to reach maturity, and it is very  doubtful if it will ever grow into as  large a horse as good care at the proper  time wonld have mode of it. That man  shows that he knows something about  horse production who plans, to do hi3  best for the young colt during the second six months of its life.  A moderate amount cf clean, fresh,  mixed hay. and a grain ration of oats,  with a little oil meal, and a twice-a-week  half ration of bran, will go far* towards  supplying the colt's needs. There is nothing better than a moderate amount of  milk for the colt at this time. ~" Most  farmers can readily supply this commodity, and the user of it will find the returns completely gratifying. WJiole  milk may be used, or milk from which  half tne fat has been removed, or even  skim milk. The milk, of course,-should  1 o swt-ot, wholesome, and freshly drawn.  P.IYJNG HORSES UNSEEN.

The most successful remedy in this  country for the cure of all forms of  female complaints is Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. It has  stood the test of years and to-day is  more widely and successfully used than  any other female remedy. It has cured  thousands of women who have been  troubled with displacements, inflammation, ulceration, fibroid tumors, irregularities, periodic pains, backache,  that bearing-down feeling, flatulency,  indigestion, and nervous prostration,  after all other means had failed.  If you are suffering from any of these  ailments, don't [rive up hope until you  have given Lydia B. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial.  if you would like special advice  write to Mrs. Piakhara, Jspxa*  Mass., fop it. She has guided  thousands to health, ������re*s of  eltargre.  to buy then- supplies of horses direct,  without seeing them. The cause of this  movement is said to be in the fact that  expert horsemen, employed to purchase  their supplies of horses, have not given  them entire satisfaction. So far, only  limited consignments have been purchased by this plan, and they are reported  to have given entire satisfaction to the  buyers. Such an outcome would scarcely have been expected, and others will  probably wait a little while before  adopting the same system.  to-  1  WHAT IS A GOOD BULL WORTH?  1 (Canadian Farmer.)  If a high-class Short-horn bull is  worth $100, when 1,000-1 b. stockers are  quoted at $35 each, how much ought he  to be worth when these same caitle  conn-nancs $50 iinn upward aniece? This  is a problem for the average farmer to  ruminate upon with prospects of personal benefit at the present time. There is  an object lesson in it for him. With  such high market values'as now prevail  for all lines, but especially for the better  quality, with scarcity of cattle of all  kinds, but' especially of the better kinds,  it ia a good time for the farmer to sit up  and take some notice.  There is no time like the present to  get rid of all inferior animals, for they  will sell for all they are worth, mort  than they are worth to keep. At the  same time, prices for first-class purebred stock have not as yet responded to  the same degree, to the upward trend as  have market goods. But they are .moving in that direction, and moving fast.  Now is tlie time to buy. "  '     '  .���������~ ������ ������ ��������������� ���������  BRITISH LABOR NEWS.

Tiie tigvii-j the  lcopaid and tlie' pantner have ail the  cat'b liabit of shaipeuing and claamng  their claws on tree trunks, but whether  it is tme that preferably they will use  a tree that bears previous claw marks-  1 cannot say.  It would be interesting to have the  opinion of some oue experienced on the  subject. However, the pursuers are be-  lieied to have selected 3uch a tree and  lound and about the trunk of it set  the strong gut snares; and sometimes-  the cheetah remained secured by the leg-  Sure it is that some snare is used for  these beasts, for they are still to be  fwv.nd in the native States of Rajputana-  and probably elsewhere, kept for hunt-  ���������c  i>"-i������--���������>���������  A leopard secured for hunting must be  caught when he is full grown, and accomplished in his knack of pulling down  gt me, otherwise, however much he weie  trained, he would never acquiie the  quickness and perception as in the wild  state when he has to secure for himself  each and every meal he partakes of.  1 have seen these cheetahs tied to ordinary charpoys and taking quite a place  of their own among their keepeis' families, who seemed to fear them not at all.  They are carted to the scene of action  with hoods on, which are remoevd when  the animal is shown the object of his ie-  quired exertions.  I have been told that they are always  rewarded for a successful chase''with a-  cupful of fresh warm blood from the victim, and some even say the liver, cut  out then.and there, is given them. To-  take possession of these creatures when  only noosed to a tree by one leg must  need great courage and dexterity,  though it seems an easy enough matter  to tame them once they are captured.  Monkeys can sometimes be secured by  the absurdly simple method of putting  some grain in a heavy, hut small-couth-  ed, chatty or gharrah. As soon aa  Jiaoko knows whnt is inside he pops in  his fist and fills it full. The object is  to have the opening too small to allow  his doubled ,up full fist to be withdrawn. He has not thej sense and cun-  ningness that is generally attributed to  liim evidently, for it does not occur to>  liim in this instance to empty his hand  of grain and so get free, for he will go  on straggling ineffectively, without doing so as often as not} proving his own  undoing.���������Tke Asian.
