Hicks of  Victoria' delighted the audience  with several, solos, which were  given in his faultless manner.1 Mr  Hicks' advent heie is always eagerly looked furward to by those who  appreciate good singing.

Sparks from the  kitchen flue alighted, on the roof,  and it-being dry from the last few  days hoc sun, at once took fire. The  fire boys were there on time, and  soon had a stream turned on wJhich  tore off shingles wherever is struck.  'Water applied from inside' had,  however, nearly killed the flames  before this. Had it not been noticed immediately, tlie fire must have  consumed the building, and probably others as well.

The rest of   the cattle  were packed too closely, and there was  /   -not tiino'for them to move.    Still spar-  Ting. Spider snatched   his r lariat  from  where it hung on his saddle, closing the  loop in order to increase its length.  He  swung it  a*id   cast.    The rope fell fair  < and,true across the neck of tbe steer to  which' Hollis was clinging., Hollis grasped it instantly.  -The cattle heaved and pushed as they  'sfelt the strain of the tightened line over  ���������their backs.  Spider tried desperately to  'bring the end of his lariat to the saddle  -- &orn. where he could, secure it. but he  was forced away'by the cattle until the  " rope would not' reach. ���������' Then the cattle  gave  back a little.    Hollis   took in the  slack afforded   by, this  movement*, and  i opening the loop with one   hand', tried  . 'to.get it1 over his head and shoulders.

"  ;_���������  '���������'Slack-off' till'I c'n fast  the rope!"  ���������called ,'Spider despairingly.    -'*I' can't  iior'ter my^saddle else'.'"    '    ,/ - '  '"      The rope.was.strained   nntil   it sung  /like a harp string.^  With a quick turn  -cf his wrist Spider wrapped the end of.  ���������the lariaVaround his hand and held on  ^wjth all the strength" of bis tough little  1 body.  Clinging to the horn witlrhis left-  hand, he was dragged-farther and farther-out of his saddle. .Finally-his hold-  ���������"���������on the.h'o'rn was broken, his pony'dashed  i.-rideiiess  up  the,, bank,   while   Spider  ''hungry the  rope., counterbalanced  by  ' Hollis at the other-end.   ���������    " v  . -t   VL'et go!" I roared to him as I pushed  ��������� smy horses down..the bank   in order to  1 -attempt tho'��������� assistance that   I   knew I'  ���������could not give'.    "Let go the  line and;  ���������get out while you can!   Don't yon see"  they're closing,around you?    Let got" V  Spider'heard and shook his head.  He-V  bad :no, intention whatever of   letting  go/ Dragged upward by Hollis' superior  weight," he was hanging with' his feet  Just" touching the water.   In spite of,  "s  desperate hold' tne lariat was slipping  ���������through Spider's-hands.   ^His face was"  ���������getting white  under   its'* tan. but  his  teeth were set and still he held fast.  * ."Let got . Let go, now!" I called  -again. -Spider did riot let go. and then  it was'too late. A bunch of cattle, confused by the'stir, that were-lumbering  aimlessly about, crowded against, him  and hemmed him in. As I rode I drew'  ���������sny pistol a"nd fired three shots in rapid  - 'succession. It is a'distress signal that  fts universally known, and if it was  ���������.heard it could not fail to bring the men  vback to Spider's aid.  '~ For a moment no1 one ' answered.  "There was no. time for an answer. But  I did not realize that then. ' I rode at'  the cattle and fired three more shots,  this time straight into them, and three  ���������of them, rolled over into the muddy wa-  ���������iter. I was so close that I could not  ���������miss, and I would cheerfully have sacri-  ���������ficed. the whole herd just then if it  would have helped Spider out But my  ���������pistol was empty, and all I could do  was to try, with the able assistance of  the little bay mare I rode, to scatter  the cattle that held bim into the herd.  Indeed tbe,mare did far more tliun 1 iu  the minute that followed. Seeming to  .realize the situation.' she plunged,  kicked and even bit as sho tried to force  ���������her wav.  Tho press  got thicker  and thicker  'The   little  mare   could 'only   struggle  .faintly against it.    I was quite clo.se to  Spider  now, but I   might as well have  been,a mile away, for I could not teach  ��������� him.

I  cculd still yell, and I did.    Three shots  ���������came back in   answer, and   in  another  03.10ment help had arrived.  The cattle.that held us into the herd  -were  scattered.    One   of  the   cowboys  caught, my mare  by the bridle and led  her, protesting against .the. indignity,  up the bank.    As we went I turned my  bead in time to see th?it Cappy Lee had  -picked Spider up bodily by his beH and  that he.looked more spiderlike than ever  'with his "legs   and  arms flourishing in  'the   air  as  be wa's   lifted to a  seat  in  ���������front'of his rescuer..    At the same time  another man cut Spider's rope.    Then,  'carrying   the  loose   end   to   his saddle  ���������horn, be. took   a  quick  turn and galloped  away.    Of  course the  strain on  Hollis' arm must have been terrible No  man could have held on, even though  his life depended -upon it, but' Hollis  had secured the loop around his wrii-t  and had no choice hut to come Bumping over the back of one cow after another and yelling frighti'ullly at he  came.

���An amusing, story is told of a
"clergyman, - who, taking occasional
duty'for* a friend in one of the moorland churches of a remote part of
England, was greatly .scandalized on
observing"the "'old. v.erger,\ who had
been "cblleeting'Hhe offertory, quietly
abstract a half crown before presenting the -plate* at ^tho 'altar "rails.
After the service he called^thi:
man. into the vestry and, told
with emotion that his crime

puzzled. Then a sudden light dawned on him. "Why, sir, you don't
mean'that ould half-crown of mine?
Why, I've 'led ofl' with he this last'
fifteen years."

The scheme that 1 wished to lay
before the meeting at St.'^John was
simply   this: That   at  the   confer
ence, Canada should propose to tbe
mother country and the colonies that
they should 'agree to put a duty of
from '5 t'o 10 per cent, upon ali
foreign goods entering every port
in the British Empire. Th^t mone.v
to be set aside as an Imperial defence fund, the general distribution
of the fund to be left to a committee, consisting of representatives
of tlie ]mperial Government and of
all   tho  colonies. The    administra
tion     of     the 'money in   the ditTeren'j
colonies   to    be    done  by    the ' local
Government   in   accordance with the
general      scheme     of  defence.    '��� Thi:--
scheme  would  give to  every  portion
of the Empire     a preference in  every
other     portion-.       It   would  help   the
food   supply  in   England   itself:"_'���;.' it
would     help   the   manufacturers       :n
England';   it  would  help- the. Emr>:ra
bir  getting   enough   food,   grown   under its own flag,   in   case of danger,
while it     would send  to   the  colonies
"the  surplus  population,   the     wealth
and     the   resources   of   the       mother
country  to   develop   our   own  empire
instead   of      frittering  it   away        in
foreign   countries.       That,   in   a  few-
words,   was  the.scheme I     proposed
aat St.  John.      Five'of the foremost
'men in St.   John, of different partie'-"
in  politics,   a  Senator, and       several
members of Parliament,   at the close
of    +he    meeting,    in most powerful

A  f <-  .TJIIAN BLOODHOHNi> j  AUSTRALIAN   BLACK TRIBE ENDOWED  WITH TRACKING INSTINCT.  Positively Xo;Esc.ipe From the "Tracker'1  ������������������The Excitement of si Man Hunt���������How  Charlie Traced a Cattle Thief for J->a-������ *  and Then Discovered Him" Treed Like  a Possum.  When a man commits a crime '   in  'Australia he  knows  that his  chances  for escape are  hopeless, if it   "tracker"  is    put     upon   " his  trail   within  twenty-four     hours    thereafter.        A  tracker is a native black man,      one  ,    of a tribe endowed with a marvelous  ,' instinct  which   enables  them  to    run  down to his hiding- place any    crim-  ' inal fleeing from justice. These    men  -,' are , literally known as bloodhounds,  and their strang-e power is possessed  "    by no other race of people      in     the  world. ' ��������� '  Once given the scent, a tracker will  pursue and  discover his game      with  never-failing success, unless the criminal has had sufficient start to      en-  n    able him to put to' sea,      in      which  case  the  black  man  can , only follow  him to the water's edge.  '    The peculiar  power "of  the *    black  detectives was first discovered by the  '   , white ^ surveyors      in  the  Antipodes  thro-ugh their extraordinary     success  in locating lost people in the    'bush.  An     unerring instinct,  couplqd     with  'inexplicably  keen judgment,   made it  ,, possible for" them to take up]a trail  and follow it until the lost man was  ���������������������������   ^ found,     dead   or   alive,   even-; though  the journey  led* through the "forests  where the black pursuer never,      had  been.   Their usefulness as trackers of  criminals   was   thus  suggested, ���������   ..and  "-   they have since proved themselves in-  : '   valuable to .the  police. '   So* implicit  is    the    confidence felt iri: them that  -.when a black starts  out .pn, a'r man  , hunt   ' the     officer   who   accompanies  him merely' follows in his ,wake, leading his  own horse;   and    \does      not  ,    question him or' in any way ..interfere  .-.with him,  no matter in what!, direction ��������� the guide may'go.  oivhow j ap-  . parently     reasonless     or futile      his  ���������    method.   The officer Icdows tyiaf, ,  the  simple-minded aborigine possesses    a  cunning and  sense  of divination/ superior to his own trained intelligence  and so keeps a respectful silence.'���������-.;' A  The most expert trackers are found  ii-rthelState of-Queensland,  near' tho'i  .-.borders of New South Wales.     -They''  are animated,  by no  feeling  of     vengeance toward-their Quarry,  and will  ' travel faithfully for any number    of  ,    miles, intent upon their task and un-  ,   mindful  of any, obstacles   or   danger,  seeming to take delight in the      accomplishment of their object, and asking      a reward  ridiculously-out      of  proportion   to   their   labor���������   a      few  Bhillings,   some   tobacco   or  gewgaws  sufficing them.-Of tho value of mon-  'ey they have no conception.    Hum is  their weakness.    I have known  of , a  tracker employed  to   locate   (   certain  ���������valuable trees for a timberman trav-  ,   eling  forty  miles   through     a  forest  so dense that he had to cut his way  with a tomahawk  (a. necessary  weapon down there for exploring),     and  being  content with  a  reward   of    -'a  bottle  of rum,   while the'timberman  realized   S450  from  tho  sale   of    t,he  tree.    They are  submissive,   courageous and alert.    Their knowledge      of  English  is  veryr imperfect,       a     few  broken   words,   signs   and       gestures  conveying their meaning.  My first man hunt was with "Charlie," a splendid specimen of aboriginal symmetry and     muscular development.    His   eyes   were, large,       black  and     dreamy,      but      brilliant  when  aroused to  the  business of tracking.  His  general  appearance  was      somewhat like that  of a negro,  his .complexion and skin totally black, showing a tinge of copper in the sun. His  fine,   strong white  teeth' seemed  capable  of  assisting him  to  devour  any  sort of wild game.    The usual     loin  garment   of  kangaroo   skin  he       had.  discarded for a covering of light cotton  cloth,   provided   by   the       police.  He led      a horse,  for' use in getting  over  the ground  quickly in the  open  country,  where  the footprints  of the  fugitive are usually distinct     enough  to follow on horseback.  I had"business that took me to.the  Queensland border^ en route through  the Nightcap Mountains, . and -was  looking forward with little .pleasure  to the loneliness of the trip, when I  was overtaken by an officer and  Charlie, like myself on horseback,  the officer having- some wrist jewelry  and a warrant for the apprehension  of a cattle stealer. Now, cattle stealing in Australia is a serious offence,  the cattle laws there being most  strict. /The offender had two days'  start of his pursuers, and was known  to be a well-seasoned .bushman, who  could resort to considerable cunning  ���������to elude capture, being thoroughly  familiar with the methods of the  trackers. This made the chase the  more exciting.  Charlie struck the trail easily  enough and ran along, never once  raising his eyes oil the ground, until after four hours scrambling  through underbrush. On the first  heat of the third day of the trail,  we reached a river, Charlie crouching  attentively along the ground until  he came to the bank. There, in the  damp earth, two foot prints were  plainly visible.  "What are you going to do now?"  asked the officer of Charlie.  For answer Charlie leaped into the  river and struck out for the opposite  bank. The tide was rather strong  and carried him down stream a bit,  but     he swam valiantlv.  while      we  sat, tired, travel-stained and hungry, on the trunk of a fallen tree  and watched '-his ebony wool bobbing  along on the'water. Emerging on the  other side he ran dripping for twenty feet or so, following footsteps  that again stopped at the water's  edge.  Here the "tracker .paused. Tie was  plainly puzzled. What' had become  of the cattle thief? Had he recrossed  the river, or swam down as far as he  could and landed on either bank,  then struck into the-woods again?'  Again sharply examining the ground  and satisfying himself that the man  had not remained on that side. Oh-i--  ne swam  back,  landing a few    yards.  below  us.    By  his  actions   ��������� we     saw?  that he had  found   the  tracks again.  The man  had  indeed   recrossed      tho  river,  but where had he gone      after  'that?' " _,-  Trust a tracker (to guess riddles of  that sort! * "'  Suddenly Charlie commenced to  brush a.side -the leaves and* twigs  along the edge of the bank, uncovering the space between him and us  until he caught up with us.  < "White fellow no can fool blacii  fellow,'' he said, smiling, wet and  breathless. Then we saw that tho fugitive had carefully covered up his  tracks while walking- backward, and,  strange,to say, tchey terminated ^under the -very tree  where we were.  Apparently the man hunt was at  an end.

OLD STAMPS DESTROYED.  Thrown    Away    as    Kubbish ��������� lCnoii-jli    to  Plaice an  Ardent Collector Go Crazy.  Philatelists will be down-hearted  when they read of ������the wholesale destruction . of thousands of valuable  old stamps which" has taken - place  in  Barbados.  The story is told in Stanley Gibbons' Monthly Journal, which says  that stamp collectors in Barbados  were wild when they heard that  these stamps had been thrown away  on  tho reef as  rubbish.  Ten years ago a heap of bankrupts' ledgers, clay books.. account  books, etc, the accumulation, of 50  years, was removed to a room -in  the Court House. Eventually this  room became so full that a short  time back the o.'Iicial assignee decided to have the old ledgers carted  away to   the  reef and buried.  In addition to , the books there  was a vast mass-'-of- correspondence  from. England and various West Indian Islands, and numbers of old  and valuable stamps remained on  the envelopes. The order to remove  the books was taken to mean clearing away everything in the room,  and accordingly- the stamps went  with the remainder of the "rubbish" into deep trenches for the purpose.  The street arab , unearthed the  treasure. ..' Dozens of boys got to  work on the trenches and brought to  light  thousands   of  stamps. Many  were spoilt, but a few well-known  purchasers secured hundreds of  stamps at prices which should leave  them a very handsome margin of  profit.  The Government, hearing of the  matter, had the ledgers, correspondence,  etc., dug up and burnt.  Color of Scot's Hair.  A curious      investigation  reported  to   the  British   Association traces  the origin of complexion by the surnames.

Winnipeg is a  hoyden,  Victoria  a  dainty; maiden, -Ottawa/a  lady   of   fashion,   Montreal   a       .solid,  business man, and.Toronto a well-to-  do  citizen  with  a  place in  the  coun--  try.     It was with a feeling of repose  that   we   approached  the  capital     of  Ontario.*-    .Night and day we had sped  across bare heaths and through gi eat  stretches' of forest,   beautiful  in their  scarlet  and  purple  vastness.     Never  have     seen     such masses of color ~  the  deep' purple of  the  blue    ' beech,  tlie   trembling   orange   and  gold    ''of  birch" and  aspen,   wreathed   with  'the  dark green of pines," a carpet ������.f flaming      schumach���������all     fading     into   a  dream  of 'pink'and purple  and green  and "gold against the cold blue of*an  autumn  sky.     As  we  drew  near      to  ���������Toronto      a new   and  quiet sense. of  homo 'came over us.     From the windows    of     the train we looked J "out  across   English   meadows   and ' ��������� gar-  de'iis^and hedgerows, right away to a  .blue line of     hills tancl a dull \ grey  sky.'     Smiling' homesteads,   pleasant  hamlets,  busy^towns, glided past us,  leaving - ah    impression of   industry,  content  and settled prosperity.     The  people, too, reminded us strongly   of  home, for we were in the heart'-of a  British   ' and Protestant community.  Everywhere      the   Duke   and  Duchess  had been welcomed warmly and heartily,      even in    French  and Catholic  Quebec, but in my cars the cheers of  Toronto      sounded     more- stirring ���������  more British in force and value.  1 am not sure that-0this    feeling   of  home was not due in pari to another  cause'.-    It was  raining    The  climate  of  Canada has  been  woefully  misrepresented. Most   people   remember  the     words,      "Our     Lady     of      the  Snows,"   and  forget the license      of  the poet.     There is a popular belief  that in theLDominion they leap from  "winter       to     summer      without     a  spring."      Now,  in  this journey      of  nearly six thousand miles,  we    have  had  almost perfect  weather.  Though  on  the edge of  winter,   only on     one  fleeting day have we had snow. Three  or four  showers  of  rain,  and  all the  rest bright, warm and sunny.      Even  the winter, as everyone will tell you,  is less   trying  than  that of England,  for      the  air is  clear and dry,      and  still,   though  the  thermometer    may  be many  degrees  below  zero.      Only  when  the  wind  blows���������and  that      is  rarely���������do  you  need to   wrap     yourself in furs and avoid exposure. Well,  it was rain in Toronto,  and the sky  was  leaden,  and  no  one seemed      to  give it      a thought.     The children ���������  there      were     six     thousand  healthy  youngsters  at the railway  station ���������  .sang  their     national  songs,       waved  their Union-Jacks and maple leaves,  and cheered as lustily as if the    sun  had   been   shining   on  them  and  thoy  ���������wore not soaked to the skin. The  streets   were  densely  crowded,      and  tho enthusiasm was a thing to be remembered.     Their   Royal Highnesses  drove through, miles  of suburbs,      in  which are many  beautiful residences,  gardens    '-radiant with blossoms and  leafy  avenues.   In  the  city are many  handsome   churches   and public  buildings, l with   well-ordered   streets    traversed in ever direction by      electric  tramcarsi     Canada is a land of public   buildings   and   tramways.     Every  Provincial  capital  has  a pile of Government   buildings   that   would      not  discredit a'-European capital; and the  wealthy merchants  and   citizens    display admirable taste in the construction   of  their   business   houses      and  dwellings.    The effect is pleasing and  surprising,      especially in  towns not  a Quarter of a century old.  Their Royal Highnesses spent two  busy days in Toronto. I have given  by cable a orief description of the  chief incidents. The review was the  principal event. In numbers it surpassed any that we had seen in Canada. Nearly twelve thousand men  were drawn up on the shore of the  lake, in front of fifty thousand people, who watched with manifest interest every evolution on the plain.  I have    said    before    that the   Can  adians appear to take less, interest  in the war than do the Australians'.  Martial spirit is not so manifest, and  the 'cadet system, strong and wide-  'spread in .Australia, is here in its  'infancy. '   ''    .

On every side were evidences-of  industry' and  thrift,   and   of, a      soil  that yields  abundant harvests.   London, is'but  one of  a group  of  townships  that give to   Ontario Its   .preeminence as the wealthiest nnd'most  populous   province -in   the .Dominion.  In  182C( it  was      the administrative  centre,  and to-day it is the boast'of  London  that more  trains  arrive, and  depart daily there than at any other  point in Canada.

[Continued from last week.]  ��������� As to breeding, test your cows by-  weighing their better individually,  and if she does not pay more than  her yearly  boarci, get   rid of  her.  You  cannot  keep  a   boarder who  does   not   pay   any   more than   a  hotel   keeper   can.       A   cow   can  usually gather food chough to make  milk to raise her calf,  if you desire  more, you must feed her.    You may  ask, " Where is the profit in feeding?"     It has been proved, in answer, that a cow who m nufactnres  hali oi: hor food into milk.is profi- :  table."     Do-hot make the. mistake  OX7I1 SUPPLY OF S0M2I<  Foreign Brop'. Seeds,  The following article is from the pen of  G. H. Clark,'- b'.S.A.,," Chief of the Seed  I) 1 vision Department of Agriculture.   '-  If (the  farmers  of; Canada   were, acquainted  with  the  sources of supp.ly of  their root crop seeds,  and>the'avenue  through .which they pass before reaching-  v ��������� .'  them, they would be a great deal,"more  oarticular when making their, purchases.  Practically all ihe seed for our root crops  is grown in foreign countries.    However'  -important it mav be that the seed for Juch'  crops be grown in the country where it is  wanted  foV sowing, the cheap labour  in  those European countries which have become, the seed gardens of the world, h.is  made  the seed growing industry unprofitable to Canadian farmers or seed specialists.      Our   supply   of foreign   grown  seeds is bought and imported principa ly  by our larger seed turns. They make their  purchases either by paying a commensurate   price   to   reliable  European    seed  growers, men who grow seed from selected pedigreed stock or, they may buy seed  at a much lower price���������seed that is grown  by men whose chief aim has been to produce a large quantity, independent of the  quality of the crop it; will produce.

The books issued by  your  Agricultural   Department on  this subject are available. I slrorio-  ly advice you to procure I hem, and  study them.    No cow can find proper  milk  food  in   dry hay.    .yhe  must   have   some   rich   condei sed  food such as   oil cake.      Oats   are  valuable, they are.s oioTe invigoraf  ing than  an}' other giain.     Make  her ration 1-3 oats.     No two cows  are exactly alike in feeding.

Keep  your  cows   clean   and  never, abuse them.     You can cause  them   to lose   50 per cent,  of   the  cream by beatmg or other brutality  about milking time.    I am not going   to    advocate   any   particular  ideal size and form and are known ;to be  true to name. For instance, an ideal turnip is one having a small neck, and top  growth.
