It was casxT for the ""iris to notice
what was going oh and to hear every
word that was said. At the tones of
authority in Fielden's voice the tramp
looked up and made a ludicrous effort
to pull himself together. Over his
right eye there was a fresh cut, from

Fielden    was    conscious
feC-nial occupation in his own neighbourhood. It ���was.part of. the. same
roma-nce that he should obtain employment at the hands of Mr. Copley.
But, of course, he does not pass in
his own name. Piease to recollect
��� that he is Mr Field. And how, my
dear, you have the whole story in a

of lump sugar for his horses. One day
last week he forgot the sugar. The
horses waited for some time for htm
to come out, and when he did not appear-they decided to enter the restaurant. The large wagon collided with a

"We shall be delighted," she said.
"I fancy my father told me he expected Mr Copley, too."
Fielden said nothing for a moment

him that he .had forgotten an important matter which would detain him

"It looks like it." Fielden asid.
This man was probably one of the

broken-down creatures, occasionally
employed on those shady jobs. But
he must be taught decent manners.

"Well  you    won't    get any here,"
Fielden replied.   "If    you have anything to say to Mr. Copley you had
better wait.  \He will be here at Ave

in spite ot the man's intoxication
he knew what he was talking about
and was plainly desirous of conveying something definite. There was
a mallguant look In his eye which

The Old Clock of St. Giles
/ (Westminster Gazette.)
All loyal Scotsmen will learn with
regret that the well known clock on
St. Giles Tower in Edinburgh, which
must have told the time to Scott and
Burns, is doomed to disappear. Apparently a workman fell through the
ca.se and damaged the su'ec-hani'sui so
badly that the civic authorities do not
consider the wornout .works worth repair. So the old : clock will; be banished to the City Museum and replaced
by an invisible timepiece, without
hands or face, which will merely
strike the hours, aud leave the aesthetic effect'of the tower unspoiled.
The ancient clock of Sti Giles has
seen- two centuries, of.service, but is
a mere giddy youth? compared with
some of the mediaeval horologes on
English cathedrals. There are clocks
that date from the fourteenth century
at Exeter, Wells and Peterhoro.

The announcement that the Canadian Pacific Railway Co. will th>3  summer begin to run a ' series of  Observation Car Services on the  Austrian State Railways through the  Tyrol, marks an epoch in the growth  of the importance of Canada in the  old world, under a conrracc with che  Austrian State Railways, the Canadian Pacifip has arranged to build  several observation cars in Austria on  Canadian Pacific plans. The design  is that of Mr. Vaughan, head of the  C. P. R., Angus shops at Montreal,  who has made* a personal vlsk to  Austria to study local conditions.  They will differ slightly from the  typs as used In CHHadtt, and each  car will have platforms at both ends.  The cars will ,be the longest four-  ayle cars in Europe. They will have  a very sp?.c!ous interior, and will  seat thirty-two passengers. There  will be accomodation for a typist,  whose services will be at the disposal  of the passengers; and ,an up-to-date  library with all the latest ptagji-'jineB,  just as on the C. P. R. transcontinental trains, will be among the  features of the ears.  Both Austria and the Canadian  Pacific Railway will benefit from the  consolidation of the new scheme.  The attention of vast numbers of  travelling Canadians and Americans  will be diverted from other parts of  Europe to Austria, not only to see  that hitei esliiij-, cuuulry,- but >iu learn  how these Canadian Pacific, observation cars fulfil their mission There  will be three observation sarvices to  begin with.

Bonefits of Buttermilk  much     despised   by-product  of     the    dairy  seems  to    be    coming , to    its    own.

Then many householders use buttermilk whenever they  can get it.  So great has grown the demand  thar. the supply is always below requirements. To meet this demand  producers are devising ways and  means for increasing tne supply. True  as yet, the farmer has not realized  Its true value and tne bappiy of buttermilk on the average farm Btiii finds  its way to the hog trough, while people in towns and cities cannot get all  they require.  The increased demand has come  about largely because of recent scientific investigations which show buttermilk to be of great value in keeping  the human system in good working  order. It is especially good .for intestinal disorders.  A physician recently discovered in  the south of Russia a people wbo lived almost entirely on a diet of butter  milk or a milk product having the  same properties as buttermilk. Pie  found also that these people lived to  a good old age. This led to farther  investigation and the production of  artificial buttermilk.  j About time to Move.

McComb, a Kood River orchard s_an, who recently  visited Creston and intends to locate here in, as he says, the  best place in Canada considering fruit growing and market*  Sag possibilities, says one of the very noticeable things about  ?..Y'aaatny of the older orchards in this valley, is the evidence of  the lack of proper care. With the present growth of the  fruit industry this should not be said of the new trees. At  present some good publications on fruit growing comes to  the Review office each week, and we soon exp ct to be  receiving the best literatnre on ths subject, selections of  which will be published for the benefit of the ranchers.  The files of the Review show a lack of world news. Upon  . investigation we find that the number of city papers coming  to Creston, which publishes such news, is so small tbat we  believe we are justified in printing brief accounts of outside  important social, scientific and political movements and  events. The busy rancher will thus be able to keep in touch  with the things he should know; of world wide interest  through his home paper.  There many ways by which we hope lo make the Review  most interesting and indispensable to every home in this  vicinity, a paper that will be a credit to Creston and one  that will keep Creston before the eyes of the pablic. At  present the editor is slightly handicapped being a stranger  in the Province but after a few weeks we expect to be proud  of our publication.

Smith, Sorgeant-at-  Artns of the Dominion Parliament  since 1872, has some good stories to  to'Y concerning the expedients employed by members of tho House of  Commons to question the truthfulness of other honorable members  without being called upon by the  Speaker to retract.  \ Westerner once called a fellow-  member a liar in tbe House, and  when urged to retract remarked that  be would withdraw the expression  out ot respect to the Speaker, but  added that hti would certainly call  tbe member a linr outside the precincts cf thir* chamber. But in most  cases attacks on veracity are more  cleverly clothed in verbiage.  The most artistic effort in thi*  direction recalled by Col. Smith'wits  that of a wit who, after listening to a  Rpeech from the benches opposite,  said: "The statements of the honorable member just seated force me tribe conclusion that if he had lived in  the days of Bopphira that lady would  have preferred him to Ananiua its u  uu_band."
